Lighted This Year.

[Will Cost Leti Than $9,000 to

[Large    Plant    Coata   $30,000.
j A report of the city engineer was revived and read by the city clerk to the
buncil on Saturday night on the tem-
orary electric light plant as follows :-
In accordance with your instructions
have collected the available inform a-
lon regarding the installation of an
(lectric Light system,  and beg leave
i submit it for your consideration.
In view of the fact that there are
Later powers available in this vicinity
jrhich when developed, can supply
ower more cheaply than can be produced otherwise, it is my opinion, that
the system adopted should fulfil the
following requirements.
It should light the streets in section 1
et ween McBride street and the junction
if First and Third avenues in a sat's-
actory manner,(and if possible without
jnduly increasing the cost of installation)
the business places and residences in
this district.
The system of distribution should
one that can ultimately be utilized
the permanent plant to be hereafter
adopted. In the plant for the generation
pf power, the cost should be kept as
tow as possible,  recognising the fact
hat the plant is only temporary.
For the proper lighting of the whole
If section 1, I estimate that 5000 c. p.
ncandescent lamps would be required
ind for the lighting of the streets alone
500 16 C. P. lamps. The work can be
done most economically hy an alternating current
The only   existing   power   available
for this work, is that of the Sash and
Door factory on Seventh avenue where
the  boiler  is  approximately   80  h.p.,
and the engine 125 h.p.   The proprietor
states that 36 h.p. only of the boiler
is required for his plant, and he would
I therefore have over 40 h.p. to dispose
j of, and after 5 p.m. 80 h.p.  The 40 h.p.
I would operate 600  16 CP. incandescent
lamps sufficient for the street lighting
or if the whole 80 h.p. were available
500 or 600 extra lamps could be supplied.
I   have   estimated   the   cost   of installation as follows:-
Generator 60 K. W. with exciter
switch board     2000.
New poles and repair line from
power station, to corner of Sixth
street and lane between Second
and Third avenues      417.
Engineering and erection     1000.
THREE   CASH   PRIZES
Fer  Beat  Decorated   Buildings  for
Laurier   Celebration
Total $3417
64118 feet of No. 4 x No. 6
wire  2088.
Pole and cross arms  530.
Transformers  >... 200.
Insulator, lamp fittings etc  748.
Engineering and erection  2000.
The decoration committee are offering three cash prices for the best
decorated buildings for the Laurier
celebration. The area included is from
the waterfront to Fraser street and from
McBride street to Eighth street. Prizes
$25, $15 and $10.
THIRD AVE. PLANS NOT READY
Bad Meat is Being Sold to
Local Citizens.
Total       $5566.
Total Cost      $8983.
In the event of the additional 40 h.p.
being available from 500 to 600 16 CP.
lamps might be installed for such private consumers as are resident in the
districts between Eighth street and
Third street without any extra cost for
high tension lines.
I have also considered the installation of a steam plant at the foot of McBride street of sufficient capacity to
provide 5000 16 C P. lamps for Section 1
The cost of this installation would be
$30,000 of which one half would be expended for the steam generating plant.
A proposal for a gas producer plant
to operate a 75 K. W.., A. C generator
has been submitted. The cost of this
plant for the generation of electricity
is submitted at $11,840. To this would
have to be added cost of pole lines and
distribution, $1000, making a total of
$21000.
This   proposition   would   provide
3000   Tungsten   lamps.
Considering the situation here I
am of the opinion , the first and cheapest
system would be best and it could be
installed in about 6 weeks from arrival
of plant in the city.
Wm. Mahlon Davis
City Engineer.
Laurier    Celebration
A general'meeting of the committees
connected with the Laurier celebration
will be held tonight. It is important
that all members be present. The meeting will be in the city council chamber
at 8 o'clock.
Aldermen    Talk
Aid. Pattullo said that with regard
to the cost of operating and the revenue
to be derived the engineer might make
a report.
The engineer stated that unless the
80 h. p., was used and private consumers were served there would be no
revenue. The cost would be charged up
to the corporation.
The system for street lighting would
cost a little under $9,000 for installation. The engineer could not give the
cost of operation without going into the
Matter.
The engineer stated that a resident of
the town told him that he could get a
Hit    a    Rock
The Steamer Conveyor arrived in
port yesterday and was put on the dry
dock to have a hole in her bottom repaired. Coming through the Canyon
she hit a rock. The damage is not serious
and will be repaired in a day or two.
The Steamer Hazelton also suffered
some damage to her paddle and is being
repaired at the dock today.

Mr McMaster stated this morning that
from advices received on the Prince
George the company applied to the post
office authorities at Vancouver offering
to carry the mail for Prince Rupert and
Stewart gratis. Mr. McLeod the post
office inspector stated in reply to the
application that he had not received
instructions from Ottawa to give the
mail to the Prince George, and until
he did receive such instructions he was
unable to deliver it to the company.

MORE  STORAGE  ROOM   IS   REQUIRED   IMMEDIATELY
Gully Back of Foley, Welsh and

Rock Cut Back of G. T. P. Inn
May Be Removed. '
One of the many duties that Mr.
Chamberlin will have to look into when
he is here next month will be the en-
forging of the G. T. P. yards here. Stor-
���'!."��� room is needed at the present time
to say nothing of what will be required
tt a later date. The proposal at present
is to clean out and put in shape the two
big cuts just back of Foley,Welch and
Stewart's freight sheds. There is a
forge tract of land there that can be]
Put in shape easily and cheaply and that
will provide a lot of storage room.
There is also some talk of lowering
if not removing the balance of the rock
just west of the G. T. P. Inn. That
work can be done more cheaply now
than later on and it is getting smaller
all the time. This, however, will not
be decided until Mr. Chamberlin arrives
and looks it over. It will make a lot of
work right in the city and it is to be
hoped that the G. T. P. will go ahead
with it.
S.   S.   Picnic
The Sunday School of the First
Presbyterian church are holding their
annual picnic this afternoon at Seal
Cove. A large number of parents and
scholars  are  enjoying  themselves.

No   Council    Tonight
There will be no council meeting tonight on account o�� the If"*** committee  meeting
Work was begun on the erection of
the arch at the junction of Sixth St. and
Second Avenue this morning, Mr
Babcock stacking up his trees ready to
make a grove from that point all the
way both sides of Centre St. to the wharf.
The cesspool near the Hart store, of
which complaint was made to the council
by the health officer, is being cleaned
out, and there will likely follow a general
clean-up on the  part  of   the citizens
Matters are progressing for the
arrangement of the great flotilla that is
to go down the bay to meet Sir Wilfrid.
Captain Nicholson has advised Mr
McMaster to place the Prince Albert at
the disposal of the reception committee
It will probably be arranged for this
steamer to head the flotilla and carry the
the members of the reception committees
and their friends.
Saturday's  Baseball
    ___. Vancouver. Aug. 15-(Special)���The
The aldermen will j league games on Saturday resulted as
MthTr roJnd'the table Tuesday night follows: Vancouver 3, Spokane 0. Ta-
all being well. ' coma 1, Seattle 0.
It will be a week if not more before
the engineering department will be able
to present the plans and specifications
for grading Third avenue and other
streets in Section one. This with quite
a number of other matters were discussed by the council Saturday night.
A communication was received from
Williams and Manson stating that if
engaged a professional land
to give street lines ther
would he responsible for
If the city assumed responsi
iving the lines the city would
be liable in case of mistake.
The  fire  and   water  committee  recommended  that  all  wagons  be  kept
j off the streets except when in use.
The streets committee reported that
H. H. Rowe be granted permission to
erect a retaining wall as requested, but
not to build steps on the street.���
Adopted.
The Finance Committee reported
recommended the payment of accounts
to the amount of $857.60. The report
was adopted.
The report of the building inspector
was received in connection with- the
blast that caused damage to W. L.
Barker's office. He recommended that
the contractor be refused a blasting
permit.���Adopted.
In connection with' the wagons on
the streets Aid. Barrow said that if
owners wished to erect a platform along
side the street they might do so. This
was adopted and the building inspector
will take the matter up.
City   Accounts
Aid.  Smith asked  whether the bills
| paid by the council would be included
in the minute book or if just the distribution as was read by the clerk to-
1 night. He said it would be a much better
I system to enumerate all the accounts
! on the minute book.     Otherwise the
I aldermen not on the Finance Committee
would  know nothing about the bills.
The matter was allowed to stand over
until Mr. Helliwell arrives to go into the
books and advise the city.
Unhealthy   Conditions
Aid. Barrow reported from the Health
department that part of the G. T. P.
reserve area was in a very serious
condition and he thought the engineer
and medical health officer should go
over the area and report on it.
Aid. Pattullo thought that if the
G. T. P. authorities were requested to
clean up that part pf their property they
would look after it.
The property referred to was between
First avenue and Rupert Road and the
nuisance was caused by the building of
the reserve.
Bad    Meat   Sold
Aid. Hilditch drew attention of the
council to the fact that a lot of meat was
being sold in the city not fit for human
consumption.
Aid Smith reported to the same effect
The City Clerk reported that A. W.
Agnew, head of the water works survey
party, complained about bad meat
being sent to them.
The Health Committee was instructed
to take the matter up.
Third   Avenue    Grading
Aid. Smith asked how the engineer
was getting on with his plans for grading
Third avenue. The people on that
avenue would like to know.
Engineer Davis replied that he could
not give an exact date yet as the estimates were not far enough advanced.
He would go into them on Monday and
report that night. There were so many
other things which came up that took
Mr. Lucas and Mr. Clements away from
that work. They can only get at Third
avenue at odd times. If they could
devote all their attention to Third
avenue it would take them a week.
Change    the   Sewers
The mayor reported to the council
that the G. T. P. would start on Tuesday
or Wednesday to widen the railway
yards and would have to take out a
lot of rock. That temporary sewer
put in by the private citizens is in danger
and unless the pipe is taken away it
will be damaged and therefore be of
no use. The city might allow that sewer
to connect with the city's manhole,
on the permanent sewer now being constructed by S. B. MeMordie
Aid. Mobley thought that MeMordie
was a reasonable man and would not
raise any serious objection to the scheme.
He thought the city should protect
those people as much as possible.
Aid. Hilditch thought the engineer
had better go down and see the sewer
and report.
Aid. Mclntyre reported that the sewer
committee had received the consent of
the government to hand the new sewer
over to the city.
QUARANTINE ON
DIGBY ISLAND
DIRECTOR-GENERAL OF PUBLIC
HEALTH   ARRIVES.
Building, of Receiving Station,
Hospital and Doctor's Residence���
Deep Sea Wharf To Be Constructed.���Launch     Being    Built
Among the passengers landed here
by the Prince George yesterday were Dr
Montizambert, director general of public health for the Dominion, and Dr A. T.
Watt, superintendent of British Columbia quarantine with headquarters at
Williams Head.
The visit of these two distinguished
scientists is in connection with the establishment of a quarantine station on
Digby Island, an appreciation for which
was recently made by the federal government. Dr Montizambert, as his title implies, has all to do with the preservation
of the public health of Canada, and particularly the protection of its people
against leprosy Asiatic and other diseases that may be brought into the
country.
Speaking this morning of the quarantine station proposed to be established
in this harbor at Digby Island, Dr.
Montizambert said the site for it has
already been selected at the Point.
North of thia is another promontory and
beyond that a samll detached island.
The receiving station is to be on the
Point and the hospital on the small island.
There will be a wharf built where seagoing vessels can tie up, and a launch
for the use of the station is being built
at Victoria and will be here next month.
"For the present", observed Dr
Montizambert, "we will have just what
is necessary for the isolation and treat-

MR. SCHIFF IN YUKON
Say* Whole of Interior Will Become
Populated
Mr. Schiff, the New York banker,
who has been visiting Alaska, is reported to have said at Dawson that
the interior of Alaska and the British
Yukon would, in his opinion, become
as populous as the productive parts of
Norway, Siberia and Russia, which
are now sustaining populations of millions. The greatest need of the country is now transportation. The resources are there, but transportation
must be had before they can be developed.
The peculiar opinion is current in
some parts of the country, sedulously
cultivated by a humber of radicals who
miscall themselves conservationists,
that, while all that Mr. Schiff says is
true, it would be a great and grevious
mistake to encourage capital to develop the resources of Alaska or to
construct the transportation lines which
are so urgently needed there.
The instant any capitalists make
investments or set about developing
any portion of the country, the cry
goes up that they are "exploiting" the
property of the "people."���Seattle P. I.
RIGHT AND WRONG
I try to be good as I toddle along, I
try to be decent and white; but oh,
it's so easy to live your life wrong, and
often it's hard to do right! A man can
go wrong without sweating a hair, but
if he would stick to the right, he has to
be watching with vigilant care, and never
let up in his fight. I find it so easy to
spread a report, that darkens the fame
of a man! It costs me an effort to pull
myself short, and praise him the best
that I can. I find it bo easy, when making a trade, to say that my horse is a
jo; and it's hard to confess that he's
old and decayed, and not worth a kopeck
a throw. I find it so easy to brag and to
boast, and swell myself up like a joss;
and I hate to admit that I'm merely, at
most, no more than a fierce total loss.
I try to be decent and humble and fair,
and never have I understood, as I
journeyed the pathway with vigilant
care, why it takes so much work to be
good.���Walt  Mason.

THE MAYOR'S POSITION
The challenge issued a few days ago by Mayor Stork to "Ratepayer" who
asked for information as to whether the mayor had received money from the city
and is thus disqualified, was rather a weak retort. It was the action of a bluffer
who realizes himself to be in the wrong. A little enquiry by the Optimist since
reveals the fact that Mayor Stork did receive city money, presumably for making
ballot boxes for the city. If that disqualifies him technically the public should know
it. If it does not disqualify him he should state his position frankly and in a manner
befitting his office. "Ratepayer" was certainly justified in asking the question and
if Mayor Stork were true to his oath of office and the duty he owes the city he
would take steps to clear up the doubt instead of throwing out a challenge to go to
the courts.
The Municipal Act is quite clear on the question of disqualification through
having' contracts with the city and the penalty is severe, effect ng even the acts
of the city council. The case is a question of contract���whether it was a city contract
or a provincial contract���and The Optimist has been given the opinion of a legal
man that it was a city contract.
No officer of the city should endanger the city's business by making possible
legal suits, or storing up trouble for the future, and least of all should tbe mayor
be guilty of such. Public men cannot exercise too much care in their actions effecting
public business and they should be prepared at all times to make clear their public
conduct to the ratepayers. Throwing out challenges is too much like ring politics.
"Ratepayer" is at least entitled to the city solicitor's opinion of the case.

ment of infected sailors and others

mercantile quarantine for the time being,
but in the natural course of evolution
will grow into a first clsss quarantine
station for the treatment of passengers
and the protection of Prince Rup rt and
through it the rest of Canada, from
imported disease.
"The outlay will be $25,000 this year,
that being the amount of the approp-
riat.on. This will merely cover the erection of the hospital and the building of
the launch. Future expenditures will
be based on the estimates for improvements. There will be a deep water wharf
to which infected vessels can be tied up,
and the station will possess the most
modern scientific appliances in its
buildings for isolation and disinfection.
"There will be a doctor's residence
and so forth, and the staff will be appointed as they are needed. The only present
staff will be the men in charge of the
launch and Dr Tremayne, who is our
officer at this port."

William Manson. M. P. P., has returned from an interesting trip to Kitsumkalum and Lakelse, the prime object
of which was to test how much the
settlers in those two districts were interested in the proposed establishment
of experimental orchards there by the
provincial government. A couple of
years ago Mr. Scott, now the deputy-
minster of agriculture, made a visit to
these districts and recognized in the soil
and climate their great possibilities for
fruit growing. The report made by him
and the representatives of Mr. Manson
on behalf of his constituents, has induced the government to take up a
scheme of experimental orchards to
prove the value of these lands, but
first it seemed necessary that the settlers should show their interest in and
desire for such experimental stations.
To give them such an opportunity was
the prime object of Mr. Manson's visit
last week.
On Tuesday night the member held a
meeting of his constituents at Kitsumkalum and put the matter before them
in a practical shape. What the government wanted to know, he said, was if
any and how many of the settlers would
be willing to set aside five acres of their
land for a government experimental
orchard. The government, he told them,
would prepare the ground, supply the
trees and plant them, the owner, on his
part to do all the work necessary under
the instructions of the government
agents, including spraying and pruning
up to an amount to be agreed upon
between the owner and the department,
according to the soil and other conditions.
The plots to be set aside for this
purpose will be five acres and the agree-

ment is to stand for five years, to be
cancelled at the request of either side
on giving six months' notice, the owner,
of course, to have all the produce.
The orchards are to be available for
the men of the department at any time
for the purpose of giving demonstrations
to the public, and the owner must agree
to send reports to the department of
the condition of the orchard when required.
These conditions having been fully
explained by Mr. Manson he asked how
many settlers there were willing to set
aside five acres of their holdings for the
purpose. The matter was at once taken
up with enthusiasm and several readily
offered land for the purpose. Mr.
Manson took their names and the
localities of the land offered. These he
will forward to the department who will
send out an agent to make the selection.
The following evening Mr. Manson
held a meeting of the settlers of Lakelse,
explaining to them that the government
purposed having two such experimental
orchards at this point, one on the Kitsumkalum side of the Skeena and the
other on the Lakelse side. He told of the
results of his visit to the Kitsumkalum
settlers, but this example was not necessary. This was also a well attended'
meeting and the proposition was taken
up on its merits and met with a smi-
Iiarly hearty response. Several spoke
of the great benefit it would be to the
district to have the government test
for them what fruits could be grown
I there to the best advantage.
While on this trip Mr. Manson took
the opportunity of going over some of the
j settlers' holdings.   He was impressed by
the progress made and the success that
' was being met with, particularly with
! the growing of strawberries and other
small fruits, as well as garden produce.
He declares that the Lakelse and Kitsumkalum valleys will undoubtedly be
I one of the best sections for fruit growing
I in British Columbia.
He found the government road on the
! Kitsumkalum side a good piece of work
I for the fire miles he travelled it. It
runs from the Skeena to Kitsumkalum
lake, a distance of eighteen miles, and
it is already completed to within two or
three miles from the lake. He finds the
settlers jubilant over the near approach
of railway transportation to place them
in closer touch with Prince Rupert.
Many of them spoke of their exhibits
for the agricultural fair to be held in
this city, to which they are looking forward with great interest.

In answer 'to Aid. Hilditch, the engineer stated that the plant he had outlined would last for about two years.
In the meantime the city will be able

Aid. Hilditch was in favor of a cheap

Ten Injured in Electric Railway
Accident   at   Portland.
(Special to the Optimist)
Oakland, Cal., August 13.���An
accident occurred on the Western Pacific
railway this morning which presented
some new features. A crowded workmen's
train was going through the depot when
an engine from the shunting yards came
into collision with it. Two cars were
smashed  to  splintere.
After the collision the engine crew
was attacked by a mob and were forced
to flee. They uncoupled the engine from
the rain and steamed away from the
infuriated crowd.
Three were killed and nearly a score
severely injured.
Portland, Ore., August 18.���Ten were
seriously injured and many other hurt
this morning, when an electric car filled
with passengers crashed into a line of
standing freight cars.

do you suppose is the reason?"
"Your tie is so loud she probably
couldn't hear your suit."���Houston
Post.
Waiting Their Turn
"Did your folks down in Bingville see
Halley's comet this spring?" asks the
visitor.
"Nope," replies the native. "We never
get any of those big shows until after
they've played a year in New York���

��� All in the Family
My little 4-year old came in one day
with a serious look on his face.
"What's the matter?" I asked.
"Dora's mad," he answered. Dora
was the cook.
"Who is Dora mad at?"
"At Robert,"he replied.
"Why," I asked, 'what did Robert
do to her?"
"Made her mad," be returned solemnly.���The Delineator.
Two   Baita

Beside the babbling mountain brook-
He used minnows small for bait,
She used a sweet but saucy look.

The   maiden's   home   they   sought.
He hadn't hooked a single thing,
Bur a "sucker"  she had caught.

AN IMMENSE
RAILROAD DEAL
MEANS ANOTHER TRANSCONTINENTAL  COMING   HERE
Assumption That Large Purchases
Of Canadian Stock In Existing
Roads Means Further Extension
By the Powerful International
Syndicate.
The big railroad deal which set the
world's stock markets agog last week
is still more or less of a mystery. The
following official statement has been
obtained from a member of the International Banking Syndicate headed
by KuhnLoeb & Co., which has taken
over large blocks of railroad stocks from
Dr. F. S. Pearson and his English
and Canadian associates:
"A very powerful international syndicate, managed by Kuhn, Loeb & Co.,
and represented in England by Sir
Ernest Cassel, has privately purchased
large blocks of stock in various railroads
from Dr. Pearson and his associates.
The purchases of stock carry with them
certain potentialities. The statement
that a new transcontinental railroad
system will be formed is an assumption.
Nothing has been officially determined
as to how the syndicate will use its
purchases. The roads in which an interest has been acquired might be utilized* for some such purpose, although at
the moment the prospects are that they
will not.
"Kuhn Loeb & Co.'s policy in the
past has been to act as bankers and not
to accept the responsibility of controlling
or managing railroad systems. This
policy has not been changed. Just what
course will be decided upon cannot
now be foreseen."
The foregoing agrees only in part
with tbe very positive statements made
in the financial world. Nothing short
of a widespread realignment of tbe railroad map by the creation of a connected
system between the Atlantic and the
Pacific is regarded by Wall Street as
inevitable. The new international
syndicate is powerful enough to carry
through any project it may decide upon.
The most notable European member
is Sir Ernest Cassel, who is regarded as
one of the foremost financiers in England;
he gained distinction by his handling
of Egyptian finances and was well known
to Americans as the financial adviser
of the late King Edward. Kuhn, Loeb
& Co., of course, have for many years
been tbe bankers for the vast Harriman
system of transportation and their
relations with that system are perhaps
closer to-day than they ever were in the
paBt.���Monetary Times.
TRIED   BUSINESS   MEN
Compliment   Paid    by   Monetary
Times to Prince Rupert People
The staff correspondent of the Monetary Times, under date of July 23rd
writes to his journal from Vancouver
as follows:-
"Prince Rupert has been fortunate
in having among its early population
tried business men who have had experience in other new towns in the West,
and are ready to cope with present
conditions. The mining activity at
Stewart on Portland Canal may have
taken some of the transients, but the
success of Stewart means greater prosperity for Prince Rupert."
"At the Grand Trunk Pacific terminus,
there is a display of public spiritedness,
and movements are on foot to do the
best for the new city One of these is the
organization of a fall fair accociation
a permanent body to see that there is an
annual exhibition. The council has
discussed its first rate of 15 mills, this to be
levied on the single tax principal, so
that those who will benefit by the increased values of real estate will bear
their share of the burden of development. The Grand Trunk Pacific has
named Mr. George A. McNicholl as
the first superintendent, and he is now
located in Prince Rupert. In addition
to the Canadian Pacific Railway, Union,

TAFT   WIPED   OUT
Several Towns in Idaho Surrounded
By   Forest   Fires
.Special to the Optimist)
Spokane, August 13.���The town of
Taft has been entirely destroyed by
forest fires. Two hundred citizens
were fighting the fires all night but
were unable to stay its ravages. Wallace,
Murray and Mullen in Idahgo are also
surrounded by fire and will probably
be destroyed in the same way. A pack
train with thirty horses had to be
abandoned and it is thought they must
have perished.
