IVE CAUGHT IN FOREST FIRES
fere Trying to Escape From
Lucky Jim Mine.
Lmcn and Children Sent From
landon to New Denver as Precaution���All Buildings at Lucky
liiri and Rambler Destroyed.
(Special to the Optimist)
(lelson,  July   19.���The  forest   fires
morning reached the Lucky Jim
le near Sandon and five men were
located while endeavoring to make
Ir escape. The names of the dead are:
I David Norman, foreman
Charles Norman, brother of foreman
Col. Pierson, visiting the mine
W. Chesley
Ted Lucas.
f he flames awept the whole of the
le area, burning to the ground the
Irding house, the compressor plant
���ding, the office buildings and the
lse in which the powder was stored,
jch blew up with a loud explosion,
i much the same way all the build
ings at the Rambler mine were destroyed,
and fires are burning briskly all around
Sandon, though there seems to be no
present danger to the town.
Nelson, July 19���(Later)���The ap-
roach of the forest fires this morning
became so threatening around Sandon
that all the women and children were
packed off from Sandon to New Denver
as a precaution, and a large party is now
back firing to protect the town.
Search parties sent from Kaslo north
were forced back by the flames, but
succeeded in rescuing many women and
children from danger.
The fires are again menacing Moyie.
Forty thousand dollars damage has been
done by the fire on the Consolidated
mine. Desperate efforts are now being
made to save the Society Girl mine,
the buildings on which are blazing
fiercely. TheCanadian Pacific is a heavy
loser all along the line,ties and tressles
being burned out in some places.
CRIPPEN HAS ESCAPED
Excitement in London Over Murder
Still    Continues.
Winnipeg, July 19.���The sawmill and
lumber yards of Peter McLean, at
Blairmore, were destroyed by forest
fires  this  morning.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 18.���Both press and
public are united in strong denunciation
of Scotland Yard because they have permitted Crippen, the slayer of his wife,
to slip through their fingers. There is no
doubt the murderer was in London the
latter part of last week. There is abundant evidence to prove that. Also that
the police were over-confident, saying
they could put their finger on him whenever they wanted to do so. This morning
the interest in the case is abated but
there are no new developments.
SMALL BLAZE IN TALBOT HOTEL

Short Order.

Found in Garret Supposed to
Explain Cause   of   the   Blaze.
Declaration Oath   Bill
London, July 14.-In the House of
Commons Mr Asquith announced that
the declaration oath bill will be taken
up the week after next, and will be
sent to the Lords on July 29.
John Hay is Appointed
Vancouver, July > 19.���(Special)���
John G. Hay, formerly of Dawson and
at present the law partner of Joe Martin,
has been appointed city solicitor at a
salary of $6000 ber annum.
This morning there was a second alarm
of fire, from directly opposite where the
disastrous one of yesterday occurred.
This was in the Talbot house, and it was
at first supposed that embers from the
Scotch bakery fire had lodged in the
interstices of the roof and been smouldering until they broke out this morning.
Although it was a long time for embers
to smoulder before the fire made its
appearance. The time was about half-
past five, and the proprietor of the hotel,
Mr. Williams, was sweeping in front of
the house when he saw smoke coming
through the roof. He at once rushed
upstairs and called up his guests. At the
same time the hose was attached to the
hydrant on the second floor of the hotel
and the ceiling of the hall, where the
flames were beginning to appear.
Meantime, someone had done a
Marathon stunt up the hill to the fire
station, crying fire as he run. Chief
Mclnnes and his boys were out in a
minute and to their surprise saw Harry
Sykes with his hack coming up. 'Jump
in," he cheerily shouted, and the chief
and some of his staff did so, attaching
the hose cart to the hack. Then Harry
drove his best. .
The hose was quickly attached to the
two-inch main on Second avenue and
the nozzle was carried into the hotel.
A small room to the right of the staircase on the second floor was found to
be burning but was quickly put out by
the hose. In a few minutes the flames
seemed to be out everywhere, and then
the chief proceeded to make an investigation. Evidently the fire had started in
the attic, and a ladder was procured
from the basement to get through the
trap door. The firemen ascended and
are said to have found in the attic,
which was then full of smoke, a lot of
wall paper smouldering on the floor in
a heap.

(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, July 18.���Mr. Mann
declared this morning that the Canadian
Northern will be completed well within
contract time. He says the surveys of the
Fraser watershed south to Thompson
river have advanced so far that it is
expected construction work will be in
full swing all winter.
Mr. Mann is also pleased to report
progress on the Stewart railway. He
says the rails will be delivered there
within a couple of weeks and by that
time the contractors will be sufficiently
advanced for the company to begin
to lay steel. He says he is more than
satisfied with his Portland canal holdings, as he is confident it will prove to
be a very rich section of the country.

(Special to the Optimist)
Jton, July 19.-The last sensation
he Crippen murder case   occurred
�� morning, when at the  inquest the
e surgeon refused to identify the
* '"urul in the cellar as that of the
n_ woman. He said it was impossible
to identify them. He would go so far as
to say it was impossible to tell from the
remains whether they were those of a
man or a woman, owing to the decomposition. The inquest was thereupon
adjourned indefinitely, while the search
for the missing man continues.
Montreal, July 19.-A passenger
answering the description of Dr. Crippen
is said to have landed from the Megantic,
which left England on July 9th. He was
accompanied by a woman. As soon as
they landed a hack was engaged and they
disappeared. The police have now no
no track of them. Were not searched
when they landed, nor were any of the
passengers.
Messrs. M. Harrison and Otter have
left Stewart for a trip to their claims
on the Bitter Creek gold reef. They will
be gone for several days.
WATER TO BE TURNED OFF
Engineer Davis made an investigation of the water supplyjoday
and finds the level of the water
at the dam is falling, which shows
more is being used than is coming
in. He therefore asks The Optimist to warn consumers that
the water supply will be cut off
between the hours of nine this
evening and five tomorrow morning, and they must lay in a supply
before nine. As a precaution in
case of fire a man will be ready
to ��� turn the water on at any
moment.

(Special to the Optimist)
London July 18.���The admiralty
office announces that recent experiments
have shown the growing value of submarines. It is claimed in this report that
it has been demonstrated that no
battleship is safe within a radius of
five hundred miles of a submarine craft.,
as the latter can elude the most careful
scouts. These results of recent experiments are a surprise to the officials
of the admiralty, and a new series of
manoeuvres have been ordered.;
Should these bear out the reports
already made, and there seems to be
confidence that they will, the matter will
be brought to the early attention of
parliament with the hope of securing
more money for the construction of submarines before the battleship bill passes.

(Special to the Optimist)
New York, July 19.���Jim Corbett
claims to have an unknown who will
challenge Johnson, and Mackintosh,
whowas with Johnson in Australia and
saw him fight with Burns as well as with
Jeffries, thinks so much of the mysterious
unknown that he has posted a forfeit
of five thousand dollars for the match,
this sum, when the arrangement shall
have been entered into "between the
principals, to be used as a side bet.
If the match is made it is likely that
it will be pulled   off  in Australia,   as
Mackintosh says a bigger purse could be
had there than   anywhere in   America,
and the   Australians would   like to see
the  colored  champion  defeated  there.
There is much speculation as to the
'< identity of the unknown.   Many   think
it must be Gotch, but Frank declared
| only a few days ago that he was satisfied
i with what he had won on the mat and
nothing would induce him   to enter the
fistic arena.

(Special to the Optimist)
San Sebastian, July 19.���All dispatches
from Madrid continue to be rigidly censored but the revolutionists are being
kept posted as to everything of moment
that transpires at the capital. It is
generally known that the rioting there
which begun on Sunday has been continued and is growing more and moree
alarming. This morning bombs were
freely used in an attack on the war
department and a number of people
were killed. The king is still being urged
to suspend the constitution but he still
wavers. The revolutionists are well
organized all over the country, and many
ex-army officers having joined them.
Don Jaune has not yet been heard from
but it looks as the fight was to be for
a republic rather than to restore the old
dynasty of Spain, and the rebels are
said to be receiving large financial support
from the republics of Latin America.
Pennsylvania quarry near here yesterday,
blew five of the workmen to atoms, the
remains being strewn over a wide area.

LATEST NEWS FROM PORTLAND CANAL
Another Free Gold Strike  on Bitter Creek���Lucky Prospector
Backed By Prince Rupert Capital.
The mining interests of Stewart received a genuine thrill on the arrival of
A. E. Crossett, a well known prospector
from Bitter creek, with samples of ore carrying free gold. Without a doubt the
specimens exhibited were the richest
yet displayed in camp, the yellow metal
standing out in lumps larger than a pin
head. Mr. Crossett does not claim to
have a free milling proposition, says the
Portland Canal Miner, but the gossan
on his lead undoubtedly carried native
gold nuggets, and his strike has given
an added stimulus to more careful
prospecting in the neighborhood of
Bitter creek that is of direcct benefit to
the camp.
The veteran prosbector, who was
grubstaked by Prince Rupert interests,
stated that the new find was made a
mile and a half in a southerly direction
from the mouth of Bitter creek on what
is known as the Big Boulder group of
six claims. He located 14 claims in three
separate groups. At an altitude of 1400
feet a quartz of six feet through sufficient work been done to determine the
walls and dip. The country rock is
slate with intrusions of granite and
diorite dykes. The ledge is strong
carrying iron and copper pyrites in the
quartz and assays $60 in gold.
Shortly after the news of the strike
was brought to Stewart Mr. Crossett gave
a ten days option to Mason & Simpson,
brokers, the considration being around
$30,000. Mr. Simpson immediately
left for the Big Boulder and sampled
the ledge, assays of which are now being
made.
Values on International
The strike reported last week on International, samples of which were
brought to Stewart to be assayed by
Superintendant W. T. Smith gave returns of 6 per cent copper and"$20 in
gold and silver.
Companies    Incorporated.
The following companies have been
issued certificates of incorporation: Big
Casino Mining Co., Keystone Mining
Co., King Edward Mines, Laurier Mining Co., Northern Consolidated Mining
Co., Portland Pacific Mining Co., Portland Canal Trust Co., Portland Dread-
naught Mining Co., Portland Canal
Lumber Co., Silver Bow Mines, and
the Stewart Trust Co.
Joe-O. K. Mining Bond.
A persistent and apparently unfounded rumor has been in circulation around
camp the past week to the effect that
the third payment on the bond on the
O. K. fraction claim, owned by Joseph
Perrault, would not be met by the Little Joe-O. K. Mining Co., Ltd., on September 1st. The amount is $10,000.
The bond was for $80,000, and two payments amounting to $10,000 each in
cash and shares have been made to
Mr. Perrault and Dr. A. W. Moseley.
Dr. Moseley secured the bond in January and later turned same over to Captain John Irving, who organized the
company.
Captain Irving denied emphatically
any knowledge of the rumor, and stated
that there was absolutely no truth in
the story. Mr. Perrault could throw no
light on the subject, though he suggested
that sufficient development had not
been accomplished to justify throwing
up the bond. Dr. Moseley, who was
largely instrumental in placing the
stock, confessed he saw no reason why
the bond should not be met, but stated
positively that should it prove to be
true he would protect every stockholder
he had personally sold shares to. Both
Captain John Irving and Dr. Moseley
left Setwart for Victoria on Thursday's
boat and it is hinted that the doctor
would call for an audit of the company's
books and affairs.
Need Lota of Practice.
Since the Ketchikan champion baseball team has won the pennant of the
Far North by defeating Juneau, local
fans are anxious that the Stewart
nine should try conclusions with the
champions. The Portland Canal Miner
says that with practice the locals should
soon round out and be in a position
to put up an excellent sample of the
game���sufficient at least to have the
flag brought to Canadian territory.
Manager Grey, it is understood, is now
in communication regarding a match.
Building Road to Bitter
Foreman^. N. McPhee has some 60
men working under him on the roads
and trails and has completed the new-
trail on Glacier creek. He is now building the road up Bitter creek and has
camps on both the mouth of this stream
and at Bear Lake, Good headway is
being made, notwithstanding adverse
climatic conditions.
Progress of the Railway
Rapid progress is being made by Gillett & McDonald, the contractors for
the wharf, approach and bridges for
the railway. Last week saw the finish
of the piling of the wharf, which is
now being cut off preparatory to capping. The one and a quarter mile ap
proach is also being rushed, a total of
1400 feet having been completed.
LEST    WE    FORGET
Under the above heading the Monetary Times of Toronto says: 'A month
from to day Canada will have forgotten
the Montreal and Niagara Falls fire disasters, which this week tore frcm
their vitality two score of human
beings. That is one of the worst features of the appalling incidents. The
nation sympathizes, and in its race for
dollars, forgets. The collapse of a water
tank was apparently the immediate
cause at Montreal.which in turn commenced fire and explosion. Strictly
speaking, the death roll cannot be
ascribed to fire, but the event comes
directly within underwriting spheres
and the need for better building regulations, restrictions and inspection.
Because a man has dollars does not
argue that he hasn't any sense.

THE MORAL RISK FROM FIRE.
The second fire in the business district within twenty-four hours brings the
property holder in the city to realize the seriousness of his risk in the down town
section of the city. Being a frame-built city, the natural risk is extremely
great, and being a new and promising city where persons take long chances and
many fail to make good, the moral risk is even greater. The insurance companies
size up the situation and make an almost prohibitive rate of insurance, a rate which
few businesses can afford to pay. Thus the careful financier, the man who is likely
to be a permanent resident, has to practically carry his own insurance. He is
verily in a hazardous position.
It is the duty of the authorities to see that the business man has every reasonable protection from both the natural and the moral risk. We cannot hope for
lower rates without fire fighting apparatus and an efficient watei supply. Nor even
with these, if mysterious fires continue to spring forth. There seems to be some well
founded suspicion that the fire of this morning was of incendiary origin and for the
good of the city and the safety of life and property the fire should be thoroughly
investigated. If there is a guilty party he should be punished as such a terrible
crime deserves. If there is no guilty party the public should know it. This much is
certain that under the circumstances no one can honestly resent an investigation,
and careful inquiry will be as good a preventative of fire as it is possible to get.
The proprietor of the Talbot House has always been ready with his own apparatus in protecting his building from outside fires and no doubt he will be just as
eady ; >   assist in clearing up the mystery of the inside blaze.

report on the water works system will
cost, it is estimated, $2,756. 25 and it
will take a survey party practically a
month to perform their duties. It is a
big work and the chief engineer wants
it done right. It will take a little longer
but it will save the city a lot of money in
the end. The council has adopted all
his suggestions as will be found in the |
Water committee report published below.
A report was read from the Streets
committee recommending that the city
give lumber to McLennan fcr pipe
drain water across his lot at a cost of $72.
Report was adopted, and the work will
be carried out.
The water committee reported as
follows:- "Pursuant to report under
date of July 15th from chief Engineer
Davis, we recommend that the report be
adopted, and deem it advisable to proceed with the work at once. The estimated cost of which would be as
follows:-

TEN   MILLION   BOND
Grand Trunk Pacific Borrowing in
London    Market
(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 18.���The Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway company is reported to
be arranging to float a ten million dollar
bond issue, the rate to be three per cent.
Nelson, July 19.-���Heavy rains are
falling in the Moyie district and it is
believed they will save the situation.
There was also an open can of lamp
oil, about three parts full. The chief
run his hand into it to ascertain its
depth. After this there were rumors
of suspicious circumstances and Chief of
Police McCarvell started a strict investigation, taking the proprietor up to
the attic and questioning him. Mr.
Williams was overheard to say he did
not know how the oil can got into the
attic. He had not seen it there before
the fire.
Nothing was lost so far as can be
ascertained in the excitement caused
when the alarm of fire v/as given. The
trunks of Mr. Miller were quickly in the
porch, all strapped and ready for removal and the guests had plenty of
time to get out their belongings. The
wall papers, carpets and the beds were
badly damaged by water, but the
bedding of all the rooms not in use had
been taken out yesterday and stored
with Lindsay, the expressman.
At eleven o'clock this, morning, when
it was assumed that Mr. Williams the
proprietor of the hotel, had recovered
from his excitement, he was asked to
make any statement for the Optimist
he pleased as to the origin of the fire,
and it would be printed just as he said
it, Mr. Williams began his statement
readily enough, but when a question
was put for the purpose of making his
meaning clear he got huffy and said
he had told all he knew. This is the conversation as far as it went.
"I was the first to discover the place
was on fire. It was between half-past
five and six o'clock and I was sweeping
in the front of the house when I saw
smoke coming through the roof. I
rushed upstairs and saw a blaze in the
hall ceiling. I called everybody up and
called for all the assistance everybody
could  give  me."
"How many people had you in the
house at the time?"
"Not as many as usual, eight or nine
having left yesterday. There were about
fifteen in the house���sixteen I think.
They all got out safely."
"I do not know who fetched the ladder
and went up in the attic. The firemen,
I suppose. It was all full of smoke up
there. I went up later and was shown
the oil can and the paper on the floor.
I do not know how they got there.
We were up in that attic a few days ago
repairing the chimney.   I could not say
if the oil was there then or not."
At this point Mr. Williams referred
the reporter to Dr. Naden, who was
present. He said Dr. Naden was the
agent and would make what statement
there was to make.

R. Eston Phyfe and Geo. B. Kingsbury of Hartford, Conn., are in the

own the building on third avenue occupied by Geo. D. Tite and it was the

not been here since last August and they
were amazed at the progress that has
been made during that time, and they
are well satisfied with their investment
in Prince Rupert.
Temporary System will be Installed
Immediately.
An emergency meeting of the Fire &
Water Committee was held this morning with Fire Chief Mclnnes and Manager Love of the Telephone Company
for the purpose of deciding on a temporary fire alarm system. The committee issued instructions to the Chief
and Mr. Love to instal immediately, today if possible, either an electric alarm
system or temporary telephones for fire
purposes. These will be connected with
the general system when that is completed. The Chief started to work on
it at once and fuller particulars of the
system to be adopted will be given tomorrow.
NEW    PILES   COMING
Material  for  New  G.  T.  P.  Wharf
Being Loaded at Vancouver
Word has been received at the Grand
Trunk construction offices to the effect
that the new piles for the reconstruction
of the wharf here have been received
at Vancouver and that they will be
forwarded to Pricne Rupert this week.
They are now being loaded into a scow.
The old pile driver which has had a
holiday for several months is being put
in shape ready for the work on the new
wharf. Supt. W. C. C. Mehan told the
Optimist this morning the new piles
would be driven and the new wharf
started as soon as the scow got here.
This will mean employment for a number
of men for a few weeks.
The Wall Street Journal, New York,
is strong on deductions. It argues that
the increase in the sale of hosiery indicates lack of faith in the postal savings
banks.

Fill One Position���Applicants were
From All Parts of Western
Canada.
Miss Jessie Mercer of Nanaimo, B. C,
was selected by the Public School
Board to fill the vacancy on the teaching
staff caused by Mrs. Harrison's resignation Miss Mercer comes well recommended. She has had several years
experience in British Columbia and
holds a second-class professional certificate. Her duties will begin on Aug
29th with the opening of the school and
she will teach the second reader class.
As a result of the advertisement for.a
school tracher the Board received fifty
applications, the majority of which were
from the western provinces and many
had Ontario certificates as well as
British Columbia certificates. When the
board started in to consider the applications it looked as though they had on
all nights job, but they succeeded in
picking on one they all thought would
make a successful teacher.
Whether it was the salary of $90 per
month, Or that the school teachers want
to come nortd to the world's greatest
city, or that the number of teachers in
Britich Columbia are to numerous, it
is hard to say what was the cause of so
many applications.

BEAR  THE  COST  OF  WORK

Be Paid in Twenty Years���Sewer
Committee Wants the City to
Take Over Their Work.
The council was asked by the citizens
sewer committee last night to take over
the construction of the sewers which
have been started, and which are being
paid for out of the $25,000 granted by
the Provincial government. The streets
committee will consider the matter.
All the members of the council were
present with the mayor in the chair.
Council will contribute $250 to the
entertainment of Sir Wilfrid Laurier
for brass band and decorations etc and
the balance will be raised by public
subscriptions. This was the suggestion
cf the mayor.
Aid. Hilditch asked what was being
done about the city hall plans. The
architects were anxious. The mayor said
he expected a reply from Victoria every
day. Until then nothing could be done.
Government Sewer
A letter was received from A. A. Mclntyre, chairman of the sewer committee appointed at a citizens meeting
last April, stating that the sewers being
built out of the $25,000 contributed by
the Provincial Government for that
purpose, were making very favorable
progress. The committee thought that
it would be well to have the city council
now take it over, and finish it under the
direct supervision of the city's engineer,
but that the work proceed as at present.
Aid. Barrow said that the city clerk
write the committee asking for a statement of costs, etc., from the committee.
Aid. Pattullo moved' that the matter
be referred to the streets committee to
report on, Aid. Naden seconded the
motion and it carried.
Accounts   Paid
The Finance Committee recommended
the payment of accounts amounting to
$491.15. The report was adopted and
ordered paid.
City Engineer Davis was appointed
permanent engineer of the water works
department on motion of Aid. Mobley
and Aid. Mclntyre.
The Frontage Tax
The 16 foot plank roadway on Sixth
avenue and around Hays Cove will be
proceeded with on the frontage basis
The cost of the grading and the plank
road will be $36,000. This will be spread
over a period of twenty years.

For    the    Lake
Engineer A. W. Agnew leaves today
with a party of twelve men with six
more following tomorrow, to begin the
survey work in connection with the city's
water supply. Chief Engineer Davis
did not take much time in preparing
for the departure of this party after
he got the sanction of the council. It
is a case of get busy with him and he
is letting no grass grow under his feet.
Engineer Agnew, as head of the party
has instructions to push the work ahead
without any delay and he will carry out
his instructions. The water from Wood-
worth Lake is the best in the province
and it is in such quantities that Prince
Rubert will not feel at all nervous about
the water supply for many years to come.
They are talking at Hamilton of a
baker's merger. How are these rumors
bred?
