RUPERT MINING EXCHANGE MR. CHAMBERLAIN COMING
rce Rupert Men Will Become Incorporated at Once.
Prince Rupert is to have a Mining
! xchange and it will be open to no
ujjsiness within the next ten or twelve
ia)/B. The chief object of the exchange
to handle all British Columbia mining
s and particularly those of most
interest locally. The exchange will
have its own code and will receive the
quotations from Vancouver by wire
every morning, and as things develop
other wires will be put in.
The above was the decision of about
twenty of the leading and most active
business, real estate and insurance men
of the city at a meeting held in C. D.
Rahd's oflice on Friday afternoon. A
great boom in mining development and
consequently in the stocks is expected
within the next few weeks. In fact it
is assured. The local mining men are
active and preparing for a big development campaign this season. A large
number of miners and mining men are
on their way from the Cobalt district
and from other mining centres, In face
of this the local people who have the
upbuilding of Prince Rupert at heart
were not slow. They are bent on
getting all that is going for this city,
which is really the centre of  activities.
At Friday's meeting W. 11. Law
occupied the chair and Chas. Halsey
acted as secretary. All present were
enthusiastic and a committee of five
was appointed and given full power to
proceed with the incorporation of the
exchange at once. Those on the committee are : Messrs. Talpey, Pattullo,
Harrison, Leonard & Major Gibson.
The name of the exchange has not
been definitely decided upon nor has the
location of the offices. These' nfattons
will, however, be arranged in a few
days. The hours at first will likely be
from 10 to 12 or they may be extended
until 1 o'clock.

'T'HE germ of both Life and
* Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in ease of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
Eartners, wife, or children, seems ;
ut common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or Ihe

THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST
.
i
Si
The Prince Rupert Optimist
a Daily Edition       , ,      .��� Monday, May 2
?
THE DAILY OPTIMIST
"������To-day The Optimist puts on long trousers.    Henceforth it will be issued
fdaily and weekly.    Like most businesses in this country, it has matured rapidly.
h^rVn'onths age The Optimist turned out its first weekly on a hand press.    To-
Cday it is issued from one of the finest printing plants in Western Canada.    The
1 first Daily is the same size as the first Weekly.    The Weekly was popular from
its first issue, and the subscription list grew amazingly.    To-day it is circulated
all over America and beyond.    Every mail brings in new subscribers, who want
the best paper from the best town in this new and wealthy city.   The Daily
starts oil' with a liberal patronage   and prospects brighter than the issue of July
1st, 1909.
The efforts of a full staff of experienced newspaper men, printers and
machine operators will be to make this paper a credit to the city and to warrant
it a profitable patronage. The policy of the Daily Optimist will be Prince
Rupert commending and suggesting without bias that which it believes to be
for the best interests of the city, and condemning without fear or favor anything
which careful investigation shows to be otherwise. There are no strings to its
editorial policy no malice, no deadwood and no susceptibility to dishonest influences. The Optimist's ambition is to deliver a first-class paper which will be
popular and prosperous.
The Optimist job department is worthy of mention here. It has been turning out work which is much superior to that of ordinary printing shops and
second to none on the whole coast. The artists in charge of it are the best that
good salaries can procure, and their product is turned out with the highest grade
material ffhd stock. The new Monotype machine is a marvel of ingenuity and
perfection. It is the only one in British Columbia. A brief description of this
machine will be given in a few days. There is no kind of printing (excepting
poor printing) which the plant is not prepared for.
THE OPTIMIST-It's Auvic.
COMPANY WILL BE INTERESTED.
General Manager E. ,1. Chamberlain and Land Commissioner G. U. Ryley,
of the G. T. P., arrive in Prince Rupert to-night. It has been officially given
out that they come to greet the Prince Albert���the new G. T. P. boat which is
to do the island service. Coming as they do on the eve of the first municipal
election it is not unreasonable to suppose lhat the contest is of as much or more
interest to them than the boat. The G. T. P. has been charged with over one-
half tho total assessment of the city (which they did not appeal against) and
they will thus pay Ibis year one-half of the total taxes collected. Naturally it
is to be presumed that the Company is not going to let the election of the first
city council pass without at least coming to look the field over. The Company's interest will probably be more than a passing one.
* It must not be forgotten that Prince Rupert is still a Grand Trunk city and is
likely to be for many years to come. There is, however, no particular objecttion
to that so long as the citizens get (and give) a squa '������ deal. The city needs the
Grand Trunk's favor, and the Company needs the city's goodwill. The man
who is big enough to do a large job, broad enough to treat with the Company,
and at the same time honorably protect and advance the welfare of the citizens,
is the man we want at the head of civic affairs. The man who will be elected
Mayor should have the approval of both the Citizens and the Company,
oooo
When a newspaper in its hatred and election frenzy casts malicious reflections
on the nationality of some of the biggest merchants and best citizens of Prince
Rupert, it ceases to be a factor for good, or even an influence.    This city has a
large enough problem on its hands in the oriental labor question without creating
a strife or ill-feeling between the various nationalities of white men.    Prince
Rupert is bound to be cosmopolitan city, and every white man of clean character
is welcome.
oooo
The public meeting on Tuesday evening promises to result in a new batch
of municipal candidates. The "ticket" will probably be relieved of carrying
the whole burden of municipal criticism now.
oooo
Candidates should not lose sight of the fact that good ideas and energetic
application of them will be more popular with the public than photographs and
cigars.
oooo
The day of cheap rock work is over. The past winter saw many lot excavating contracts let at from $1.10 to $1.86 per yard; but now that heavy blasting is
prohibited, the station gangs no longer see anything but hard Work and no money
in such contracts. Lastweek several gangs threw up their jobs simultaneously,
and the opening of spring work on the railroad is drawing the laborers up the
river. Apparently the railroad work does not look too bad after all.
oooo
The citizens who are putting in private sewers in Section 1 are to be commended on their enterprise. It not only requires a heavy expenditure to provide
conveniences for themselves, but benefits the health prospects of the whole city.
It is the right kind of spirit and shows faith in the city.

At the Canyon, Which Collapsed Under
the Weight of Snow Last Winter.
Mr. French, of the Hudson Hay Co.,
was in tlie city last week and left on
Sunday on the Port Simpson for the
canyon antl Hazelton. At the canyon
he will arrange for the reconstruction
of the two warehouses which collapsed
last winter under the weight of snow.
The new buildings will be erected at
once. The one below the canyon will
be much larger than the old one, in
fact, all tlie available land will be
utilized. The one above will be about
the same size. Mr. French will be
away two or three weeks and expects
that before he comes back the warehouses will be nearly completed.
Asked by the Optimist what the
prospects were for the season's operations, Mr. French statetl that they
were very bright, especially in the
freight line. The immense quantity of
railway supplies to go up the river
would alone guarantee full cargoes,
while the local freight is increasing
very rapitllv. The Hudson Bay Co.
have not decided to put on any new
boats this season.
You can make your own
choice from any Suit in
our stock, or those desiring their clothing made to
order have the privilege of
selecting from our samples.
We carry a full line of
Dress, Tuxedo, Business,
and Outing Suits. -.Strictly
high-class workmanship and
quality. Call and judge for
yourself.   Prices $15 to $60.

RUPERT REAL ESTATE
Is Active  in Vancouver and  Victoria
Mr. Planitz Sold 42 Lots.
Mr. T. Planitz, of tlie British Columbia Real Estate Syndicate, has returned after a three weeks trip to
Seattle, Vancouver anil Vietoria. He
reports a very successful trip. To the
Optimist he Btated that he took down
42 lots with him antl sold them all
without effort'. He could have easily
sold many more. While he made his
headquarters in Victoria, fcwhere he
established a branch of the B. C. R.
E. S., he said that wherever he went
he found that public opinion favored
Prince Rupert. Everyone is talking
about this city and they have tbe
utmost, confidence in the future development. He expressed himself as confi-
fident that in a few days or weeks a
great many people from the three
cities he visited will come up here with
plenty of capital to invest in Prince
Rupert real estate. He looks for
heavy trading in a short time. The
weather in Vancouver and Vietoria has
been very backward. While he was
there it was cold with lots of rain and
snow. That feature had a tendency to
keep tbe people at home.
Speaking of the local trading in real
estate Mr. Planitz said that the lust
two days quite a number of middle
priced property had been turned over
and there was a  steady improvement.
