The Publicity  Club held a general
meeting in Mclntyre hall last night and
appointed the committees for the reception   of  the   home   steamer   Prince
Rupert and the entertainment of her
guests.   H. H. Clarke, president of the
club, was in the chair, and briefly outlined
the objects of the meeting.  He read the
invitation of Mr. Hinton for a delegation
to board the new steamer at Seattle and
come up with her, and the chairman said
that Messrs. Law and McCaffery had
been selected as the delegation and were
leaving for Seattle on the Cottage City.
He told further of the invitations to a
dance to be given by the club to the distinguished visitors aboard which the delegates would deliver, and remarked that
the club being pledged to this dance it
was for the members to get to work and
do honor to Prince Rupert the new steamer and Prince Rupert the new city. The
matter was taken up with enthusiam,
and there were a plenty of volunteers to
serve   on   the   necessary   committees.
Those chosen were as follows:

The dance is to be given in Mclntyre
hall, which will be profusely decorated
for the occasion. The offices on each
side of the entrance to the hall will be
used as cloak rooms; also the platform
will be moved from the hall so that as
much room as possible will be available
for dancing. It was suggested that the
skating rink be engaged for the dance,
but against this was urged that it was
not easily to be found by strangers to
the city and that the new flooring of the
Mclntyre hall was just the thing for
dancing. The committees are to report
at eight o'clock on Monday evening, at
the new offices of the Publicity Club,
Mining Association Exchange, Christiansen block.	
It is well to be useful, but don't
let people use you.
It will be all off with the rats tonight
Once Aid. Barrow and his exterminating
brigade get under way the enemy will
be forced to retreat. A mere retreat will
not satisfy the captain. He is determined
to drive the unwelcome rodents to the
sea like the herd of swine possessed with
a devil in the old days that rushed down
the hills into the sea and were drowned.
Capt. Barrow will lead off the grand
march at seven o'clock this evening and
he will have a force of sixteen stalwart
braves armed to the teeth with tin pan
and long-handled spoons. The pans will
contain a most appetizing combination
of fresh bread and virus of which the
rats are requested to eat heartily. The
army will also have a piece of chalk with
which to mark the door posts visited,
after the same manner as the Angel of
Death visited the Egyptians prior to the
departure of the children of Israel from
captivity. Not only will the first-born
of each rate family enter into eternity,
but it Is expected the whole outfit will
shut their eyes upon the cold and unsympathetic worlds
The warriors, under the direction of
Capt. Barrow, will divide into sections
and make a complete circle of the city and
then advance rapidly upon the hidden
foe so as to take them completely by
surprise and allow none to break through
the ranks. It will be a great stroke
and a mighty victory if all goes well and
the fishes of the sea and fowls of the air
will rejoice for they will have fresh meat
enough to last them for weeks. The
afflicted children of Rupert will rejoice
also to walk about without knocking
over a rat or two.
This morning a scout from the Optimist dropped in upon Capt. Barrow in
his communition store house and found
that gentleman and a number of his most
trusted lieutenants preparing the cartridges for the charge. Ladysmith will
fall tonight, or the captain will be really
disappointed. The headquarters of
the army are in the old confectionery
store on Second avenue and there the ien
were working. The stores contained 600
tubes of virus, 100 pounds of fishing
bread, sixty tin pans and sixty spoons
and pieces of chalk. A large mixing
trough is used and the bread is prepared
and the virus mixed in and then placed
into the pans for the men to take out.
Every citizen is asked to assist by either
placing the stuff themselves on the rat
run ways or showing the men where to
put it.

(Special to the Optimist)
Ottawa, June 10.���The date of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier's arrival at Vancouver
is fixed for August 16th. He leaves
Victoria on the night of the 18th, arriving at Prince Rupert on Saturday noon.
This change in the itinerary of his trip will
enable him to extend his visit to Prince
Rupert, in which city he takes a deep
interest,and he will not leave there until
Tuesday.
It is stated that Sir Wilfrid remarked
in a recent interview with Grand Trunk
Pacific authorities that he trusted the
great enterprise had chosen an adequate
harbor for its Pacific terminus, as its
importance had to be considered from
many points of view. It might grow to
such an extent that its strategetical
situation would have to be considered
as one of the great seaports of the empire
on the Pacific, and there were other
points of view outside of that of its
commercial advantages as being the
shortest connection of Canada with the
Orient. It is believed that the interest
in the new seaport then shown by the
premier has led to the changing of the
itinerary of his western trip so that
he may give a little more time to the
study of Prunce Rupert, topographically
and in other aspects.
TO SUCCEED EARL GREY
Duke of Connaught Next Governor-
General  of  Canada
London, June 6.���Captain Scott appeals to the empire for funds for his
south polar expedition, pointing out
that the crew is imperial in character. Canada's representative is Mr.
Wright of Toronto.
SERIOUS ACCIDENT
(Special to the Optimist)
London, June 10.���In accordance with
tne expressed wish of the late king, the
Duke of Connaught will succeed Earl
Grey as governor-General of Canada
early next spring. The duke will first
visit South Africa, to open the new
parliament of the confederation and may
make a long stay visiting the several
provinces.
Weddings in Mourning
London, June 5.���As the Maidsttme-
Drexel, and other important weddings,
will occur during the period of mourning for the late king it is intimated
that the guests at the functions may
wear white or half mourning.
George Denton had Bad Fall and is
Taken to Seattle
While at work on the new school
building yesterday afternoon, George
Denton, foreman for the contractor,
Alex. Prudhomme, slipped on a loose
plank and fell astride one of the joists.
Dr. McNeill was in almost immediate
attendance and the sufferer was tenderly
cared   for   by   Mr.   Prudhomme,   He
Killed   by   Thunder   Storms
Cologne, Germany, June. ��� (Special)���Thunder storms of great violence
yesterday visited the E.hein provinces,
and badly damaged the crops of Western and Central Germany. It is reported that twenty persons were killed on the
borders of the Rhine.
Local Option Lecture
Dr. Spencer will address another mass
meeting in the Empress Theatre. His
subject will be "Your next move. Why?"
Music will be supplied by Mr. Davies'
quartette. The meeting begins at 4
p.m. Sunday.
After the long debate on every point
of by-law No. 4 the regulations of the
fire department, and its final passage, the
council last night had a general conversa-
ion upon a variety of topics of more or
less importance, . Aid. Mobley begun it
by suggesting that the building inspector be instructed to work on the necessary
by-laws for the regulation of building in
the city, to which Aid. Hilditch added
that the inspector should act under the
streets committee in this regard, and
should also give his attention to the condition of the streets if he had time. Aid.
Mobley rejoined that the inspector's
duties should be outlined by the committee.
Introduction of By-law
Aid. Mobley gave notice that at the
next meeting of the council he would
introduce by-law No. 6, being a by-law
dealing with the water supply of the city.
Mr. Williams, city solicitor, pointed
out that no notice was necessary in such
case; than an alderman could move for
leave to introduce a by-law at any time.
Aid. Pattullo thought it well to give
notice so that the other members of the
council might be apprised of what was to
come up and be prepared for it. His
Worship also thought this the proper
and customary proceeding, and it seemed to be agreed the council should follow
it through without making it a definite
rule   of   its   procedure.
Reports of Committees
Aid. Hilditch wanted to know when the
several committees would report so that
they could form an opinion when the estimates would be laid before the council.
The chairmen of some of the committees
told of the progress made, Aid. Mobley
stating the fire and water committee was
practically ready to report, but he did
not think they were < "ed upon to make
estimates for the yeai DUt only for the
work decided upon under way or to be
begun at once. This was the general
understanding, Aid. Lynch stating that
the streets and property would be unable
to report until the engineer's report was
completed.
Standpipes and Connections
Aid. Mobley said he had been asked in
regard to the installation of standpipes
and had stated the necessary proceeding to be taken by applicants. He would
like to ask upon what terms and conditions a small connecting pipe could be run.
Aid. Hilditch would ask what was the
largest pipe permitted to be run from a
main. On Ambrose street, for instance,
which was rapidly filling up with buildings, a small pipe sufficient for one would
not give sufficient pressure if carried to
other buildings, and it would be better
to put in a larger supply pipe.
His Worship said these were matters
for the engineer to decide according to
circumstances.
Should Appoint Fool-Killer
Aid. Mobley called attention to what
is undoubtedly a stupid libel upon the
bright, pure water of the city. He named
a certain drug store in the window of
which was placed a glass of water with a
placard stating that the water was taken
from a city tap Under s strong microscope this showed the presence of worms

LOCAL   WATER   LIVELY
But Cuts No Ice With That of To-
ronto From This Account.
In a shop window yesterday was exhibited a glass of water taken from a
stagnant pool which, under the microscope, showed animals like sea serpents
engaged.in dealy combat. If some one
should carry this outside and libel us by
showing it as city water, one might feel
as bitterly resentful as does Toronto.
A newspaper printed at Cardiff, Wales,
has this to say of the city water supply
of Toronto:
Cardiffians who drink much water may
congratulate themselves that they do not
live in Toronto. There, an American
paper assures us, the water is so bad that
they have to strain it through a ladder
to separate it from the debris. Citizens
take it out of the tap with a gimlet and
treat it with a solution of cloride of lime
and sulphite of copper to remove the
germs. Any germs that are too big for
this treatment they take out in a back
alley, and kill with a club.
A Mistake.

BUILDERS'  EXCHANGE  KICK
Against   Hospital   Board's   Call   for
Tenders  for  the  Hospital.
A meeting of the Hospital Board was
held yesterday afternoon. The chief
business taken up was the new tenders
for the superstructure. Three were received and one was selected and the architect was instructed to sign up with him
at once. The members of the Builders
Exchange sent the board a letter stating that they were unable to tender on
the contract owing to the board's request that eight hours a day constitute a days 'work and that the union
scale of wages prevail. They claimed
this was not fair and they would not
tender.
President Kirkpatrick reported that
he had instructed the secretary to return
Mr. Shockley's cheque to him and the
board endorsed his action. Mr. Shockley
is the one who put up a marked cheque
with his tender on the superstructure and
then refused to go on with the work.
A letter was received from Mr. Hutchison stating that so far as a cash subscription from the G. T. P. was concerned it would have to wait a while.
The letter also expressed Mr. Hay's disappointment that the board was not
prepared to submit plans for his approval.

Portuguese Army Mutinies
Badajos, Spain, June 10.���(Special)���
There is widespread mutiny in the Portuguese army. That it involves every one
of the army corps is reported in secret
dispatches received here from Lisbon
today. It is difficult to get any news
from Lisbon, as a strict censorship has
been put into force. The Lisbon palace is
guarded by only a few loyal tioops and a
great revolution is evidently impending.

rAMOUS   MINING   EXPERT   EXPRESSES HIS VIEWS
n World so Favorable
Northern   British
Ho Territory
for  Mining  as
Columbia.-Ru8h of Mining Men
(rom Soutli and West.
James D. Sivord, M. E., well known
Snong the mining fraternity of Canada
md the United States, is now in Van-
louver on his way to Prince Rupert and
tmart. Speaking of the mining of
lis part of the Province at the Tergal City club the other night, Mr.
itcrd said:
"A large number of mining men in
he South and West are now looking
0 Northern British Columbia and
llaska, and in the near future this
trance   will   experience   the   influx
1 a large army of the Brotherhood
| Subterraneous Operators, from the
nrly prospector to J. Rufus Walling-
jd & Co.," added Mr. Sword.
"In no territory in the world are
siditinns as favorable for mining
nations as in British Columbia.
k mining laws are unequalled and
ell enforced; there is throughout
lie province    unlimited    wood    and
coal is cheap and abundant
id hundretls of thousands of horse-
��w is running to waste from the
iow-clad peaks of the finest moun-
iin system of North America, and
lis, added to a white man's climate,
about all a miner wants beyond
pod ore and lots of it; railroad rates
lso are endurable.
"With the exception of Northern
Canada and Alaska British  Columbia
less explored and prospected for
ouierals than any province or state
��� the  North   American   Continent.
md the conditions for human exist-
w are as favorable as the best of
hem. The advent of this country of
' ?e number of prospectors is worth
��told millions to the province and every
nducement to retain them should be
stended by our government. I am
onvinced   that many new camps will
* discovered and proved in Northern
imish Columbia during the next two
"three years, and all of which will be
ributory to this beautiful city, which is
he natural distributing point and logical
"wing headquarters of the province,
lancouver will be to British Columbia
��at Denver is to Colorado.
"The ores of British Columbia are
toost altogether  what  is  known  as
���se ores,' and therefore require
"elting, They are remarkable for
Mir large extent rather than exceed-
n8 richness, it ls therefore of vital
Wtance that the government should
��ent a monopoly of the smelting
TUBS, a��d restrain smelting com-
Wjations to control the industry of

'melting trust.
Tuneouvi.r  is  wiSe  in   taking   the

��* .exchange,  which  if  conducted
fc  h'gh-class lines will be of immense
JW to the province and the min-
JWustry generally, and determine
ot IW1.1 ^ the minin8 headquarters
��m Columbia rather than Seat
a mother. But the city fathers have
worked hard and sat for long hours in a
foggy atmosphere. They deserve a rest

Linens  require   a  long  soaking   to
remove any stain.
French  chalk  will  clean  a  slightly
soiled white chip hat.
Peach stains are removed with a weak
solution of chloride of lime.
Turpentine will be found very good
for cleaning an enamel or porcelain
tub.
Buttering bread or cracker on which
cheese is to be toasted improves the
flavor.

When next making fudge, add some
chopped raisins and nuts to the syrup
just before beginning to beat it.
A spoonful of oxgall to a gallon of

For white spots on the nails a solution of turpentine and myrrh in equal
portions is an excellent remedy.
The addition of a little sugar to the
water in which turnips are boiled will
improve the flavour of the vegetables;
Wrap furs and woolens in newspapers when putting away for the summer months. Moths do not care for the

When hats have become grayish and
shabby, they can be brightened by rubbing over them a flannel, sprinkled
with a few drops of kerosene.
If the enamel inside a rusty teakettle is not cracked, it may be thorough

and bugs and varieties of life which
should not be found in pure water.
Aid. Pattullo: Might I ask what time
it was when the aldermen saw these
squirming these?
Aid. Mobley, however, was inclined
to treat the matter seriously, and said
he did not like this idea of the exibition
of the city water. If the water was as
this sample would seem to imply there
should be an analysis made.
No one seemed to think any fault
could be found with ite water supply
and the matter dropped.
Telegram  From  City  Engineer.
The Mayor reported that he had received the following telegram from
Engineer W. M. Davis, dated from
Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario:
"Would be glad to have you extend
time for my reporting for duty until
July 15th. It not, will act aocording to
agreement."
Aid. Lynch moved and Aid. Pattullo
seconded that the engineer be instructed
to report when due, according to the
agreement, and this was carried unanimously.
Employment of Firemen
Aid. Mobley said the fire committee
had practically chosen the men for the
fire department but found it had no
authority from the council to employ
them.
On the motion of Aid. Lynch the report of the committee and its action was
confirmed and the necessary powers to
employ the staff of the department were
given to them.
The council then adjourned until Saturday evening.

The council dealt with a couple of
mjnor matters last njght before they
took up the discussion of by-laws.
The minutes of the last meeting were
adopted. All the aldermen were present.
A communication was read from the
Prince Rupert Sash and Door Company, asking that the city provide
for them a means of getting in and out
of their factory. They want a roadway
in block 22 section 6 to Seventh avenue.
If the council cannot spare the money at
the present time they will put it in if the
city will refund the amount later. They
also ask for all the fire protection
They have spent many thousand dollars
in the city and require these favors in
order to carry on their business successfully and for the full benefit of the city.
The matter was referred to the
committees on Roads and Streets and
Fire and Water.
The Finance committee recommended
the payment of a number of accounts
and the report was adopted.
The Streets Committee also presented
a short report on the streets.
Aid. Hilditch asked if it was the intention of the council to continue repairing the roads with the spruce plank
or would they use fir. The latter will
last a great deal longer and would be
much cheaper.
The mayor told him his committee
better bring in a report on the subject.
Aid. Naden introduced by-law No.,5
which provides for the raising of the city's
revenue by taxes on roads, dogs, licenses
etc., and regulating the same.
