FINE   NEW   MAPS
Of   Prince    Rupert   With     Several
Correstions
Walter and Durant, architects, have
recently completed a very handsome
map of Prince Rupert townsite. They
have worked on it for months but they
have got a splendid map and it is being
admired by all who see it. The original
drawing is hanging in Christiansen and
Brandt's offices on Third avenue. Orders
have already been received for blue
prints as this is undoubtedly the best
map of Prince Rupert in existence.
First    He    Ever    Saw
When Chas. M. Hays woke up this
morning and saw the rain he experienced
a new sensation. He had heard much
about the rain supposed to fall in this
district, but it was the first rain he had
ever seen in Prince Rupert. Mr. Hays
has been here on several occasions and
remained several days each visit and it
was always fine weather.
Vancouver Did Not Score

ended in favor of New Westminster by

TALK, TALK, NOTHING BUT TALK
While People Cry,   "Light!
Light! Give Us Light!"
Result of Saturday night's Discussion
Of the Lighting Problem. Aid.
Pattullo Anxious to Get the Matter
Settled and Work in Hand.
At the City Council meeting on
Saturday night, Alt. Pattullo introduced
again the subject of the City Lighting
Problem. Aid. Hilditch said that in
view of the Mayor's remarks about the
dangers of gasoline and coal oil it was
time the city got something done as
he had seen most of the tradesmen in
the city getting busy with these means
of lighting their premises as he came
down to the city hall.
"Isn't it about time "said Aid. Lynch
that the council got down to thinking
about this without waiting so long for
expert knowledge?
"It is after all" he went on "a problem
that we are all called upon to face for
ourselves at one time or another in the
course of business." He suggested the
use temporarily of a smaller steam
plant than that recommended in the
Sash and Door factory scheme.
"There is only one thing for us to
do "he said," and that is to put in the
cheapest plant we can get for ourselves
as a temporary lighting scheme." The
kilogwatt machine would fairly well
cover the needs of section one he thought.
The council should take means to discover if that were the case and then
proceed with the plant if it proved
sufficient.
Aid. Pattullo did not think it incumbent upon the council to go round
and count the lights required. It was
not a difficult matter, he thought, to
estimate them.
"It is absolutely absurd," said Aid.
Hilditch,"that after employing an expert in this matter, we ourselves should
be expected to know more."
Aid.: Pattullo "Excuse me, I said
nothing of the kind. You don't need to
proceed very far with the kindergarten
to make anybody understand."
"It would seem" put in Aid. Naden,
"that a census is required as to how
many lights a house would need."
The mayor���"That depends on the
price of the lights"(laughter).
"I take it" said Aid. Patullo "that
the purpose of this discussion is to arrive
at an agreement, and the easiest way

SCHOOL OPENED
FOR FALL TERM
A HUNDRED  AND TWENTY  PUPILS   WERE   PRESENT
Morning Devoted to Organization���
Misa Mereier Reported for Duty���
Old School Will Be Occupied for
The Present���Classes for  the Year
The public school opened for the fall
term this morning in the old building
on Second avenue with 120 pupils
present, which is a very creditable
showing for the first day, and means
that the total roll call in a few dayB will
be at least 150. Principal Hunter is in
charge again and he has the same staff
with the exception of Miss Mereier,
late of Nanaimo, who was engaged to
succeed  Mrs. Harrison.
The morning was devoted mostly to
organization and tomorrow both teachers
and scholars will get down to hard work.
For the present the old school will be
used for all classes as the heating system
has not yet been installed in the new
school. As soon as that building is ready
the classes will be moved over with the
exception of the little tots who will
remain in the old building for this term.
To avoid confusion and prepare fox
conditions that will exist when the new
school opens and classes still continue
in the old one, pupils up to the 1st reader
inclusive, residing on one side of Fulton
street will enter Division 3, while pupils
residing on the other side will enter
division 4. The line of division will be
adhered to strictly.

HAYS FIGHTS ASSESSMENT
Claims It Is Excessive and Declares Company Will Not Proceed
With Improvements Until Question Is Settled.
This morning President C. M. Hays,
Mr. A. W. Smithers and D'Arcy Tait,
representing the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway company, met Mayor Stork,
Aid. Pattullo and city solicitor W. E.
Williams in a private talk over the G. T.
P. assessment which the company has
protested against. The talk took place
in  Superintendent Mehan's office.
The Company is determined to show
fight on the present assessment and the
case was put very plainly to the Committee   representing  the  city   council.
After the conference President Hays
was interviewed by the Optimist.
"The assessment is most unreasonable"
he said. "We have no objection to the
assessment on the Development Company's city property but the assessment
on the railway property s greater than
even our assessment in Toronto."
"Yes," added General Manager
Chamberlainjwho was with Mr. Hays,
"the tax here at one and one half per
cent would be $300 per acre. The assessment amounts to $20,000 per acre."
"Did you make any proposition to
the city?" asked the Optimist of Mr'
Hays.
"Yes, I suggested that a nominal
assessment against all railway property
be made for a period of say twenty years.
This property cannot be sold for anything."
"Do you intend to proceed with any
buildings or yard improvements?"
"No, not until the assessment is
settled. I believe it cannot be sustained
in the courts but we do not feel justified
in going on with any more improvements
or the big hotel until we have a nominal
taxation."
"Do you think your hotel on railway
property should have the advantage
of a low tax over other hotels in the city?'
"Toronto gave a low assessment to
the King Edward and Ottawa gave our
big hotel a nominal rate in order to
get those hotels, which represent a
lot of money which does not pay for
a long time. The fact that other cities
are doing it is the best argument."
"Would you be prepared to go ahead
with improvements as soon as the
assessment is settled."
"Yes, at once".
"How wi 1 the frontage tax on street
improvements affect the railway property."
"I presume we will have to pay our
share where the property abuts the
street, but I am not sure."
Mr. Hays intimated further that he
expected the citizens would be reasonable in the question, although the mayor
and aldermen said they did not think
the citizens would stand for any reductions in the assessment.

PRISONER PLANNED TO JUMP OVERBOARD
London, August 29.-That Crippen
has confessed his crime and later attempted to evade the eonquences by
suicide was the sensational testimony
given by Inspector Dew in the witness
stand this morning, before Magistrate
Marshall.
Inspector Dew testified that when
Crippen was arrested on the steamer
Montrose he was immediately searched
and a note was found in an inner pocket
addressed to Mile. Le Neve. In this
note the criminal said:
"I cannot stand the horror through
which I have gone every night any
longer. I have made up my mind
to jump overboard tonight. The
money ha. given out.   I know I have |

Hopes She Will Some Day Forgive
Him���Tremendous Crowds at the
Preliminary Hearing.
(Special  to the Optimist)
spoiled your life but hope that some
day you will forgive me.
Yours ���H."
The Inspector produced the note and
went on to state how carefully his
prisoner was watched after this. "On
the homeward voyage," said Dew, "the
doctor had often begged his captors to
permit him to see Mile. Le Neve.   In
the midst of one of these supplications,
he sighed out: 'She has been my only
comfort in the last three years." Inspector Dew relented when the voyage
was over, so far aa to permit the prisoner
to bid MUe. Le Neve goodbye, but the
guards were within earshot all the time
and Crippen said nothing beyond ordinary terms of endearment.
At the hearing this morning Crippen
was charged formally with the murder
of his wife, the prosecution announcing
that it would proceed against the other
prisoner only as accessory after the fact,
but that she would be further charged
with having assisted and harbored a
fugitive from justice, knowing him to be
such.
The prisoners were  remanded  until

Victoria, August 25.���At the Methodist
Conference this afternoon the following
letter to Rev. Moore from Rev. G. H.
Raley, Methodist missionary at Port
Simpson, was read and its contents
heard  with  hearty  approval:-
"One of the features planned for the
reception of Sir Wilfrid Laurier at
Prince Rupert was a Sunday excursion.
When thia was mentioned to him he
courteously declined the pleasure in
terms to this effect, that inasmuch aa
the Government has a law called the
Lord's Day Act it is incumbent upon
the members of the Government to observe it. You will be pleased to know
that on Sunday morning, despite the
numerous duties of the preceding day,
Sir Wilfrid wended his way to the
house of Gof."
Will Call For Tenders
The City will call for tenders for the
work of grading on 2nd street and Fraser
street. The report of the city engineer
regarding this was accepted at Saturday
night's council meeting.
Miss Melius, of the Public School
staff, returned to the city yesterday
on the Prince George after spending the
holidays in the south.
tomorrow, week, when they will be called
upon to plead. Both admitted their
identity.
There was a big body of police surrounding the court but they had great
difficulty in handling the large crowd,
the people hooting and hissing and
growing wild with excitement when the
prisoners were taken to and from the
bu lding. ' THE    PRINCE    RUPERT     OPTIMIST

FISTS    STARTED    WAR
Punch  on   Nose   Led   to  Killing   of
Twenty   Thousand
It is curious, when one comes to reflect upon the matter, how frequently a
comparatively harmless bout of fisticuffs between two individuals has led
directly to a great war in which thousands of lives have been lost, says Pears-
son's Weekly.
A notable case in point, for example
occurred so late as the year 1891. Two
Chilian naval officers, one a Congres-
sionist and the other a Balmacedaist
were discussing politics aboard a vessel
of the fleet.
In ' the heat of the argument one
struck the other. Other officers joined
in the fray. The sailors, too, took sides.
By nightfall the fleet was in revolt, and
the great Chilian war had begun. That
single blow cost the lives of more than
twenty thousand men.
A   WISE   BULLET
Cooper drew his revolver and fired
two shots. One of the bullets took effect
in the forehead of the assailant and he
dropped to the cement walk. The other
fled.���News item in the Chicago Daily
Journal.

The specified ten years have passed, or
almost passed, and next year will bring
the census man again for the fifth time,
with his book and his interminable
list of questions. There will be more
episodes akin to that involving theGerman
woman in Montreal, who, when asked
if she had any children, answered "Nein,"
thereby misleading the census man and
enmeshing him in a most complex
tangle.
In Ottawa just now Census Commiss-
sioner A. Blue and staff are making final
preparations for the decennial count,
which will begin on June 1 next. Men
numbering 6,000 will probably be required to do the work. Arrangements
for the selection of these men, supply
them with stationery and many other
details have to be arranged for.
Mr. Blue thinks that the census this
time will reach at least 7,500,000���That,
is, if the immigration returns of the late
years are correct. Hon. Sydney Fisher,
minister of agriculture, is optimistic
and has been quoted as prophesying
that returns will show eight million
souls in Canada.
There will be thirteen schedules or
sets of questions that the commissioners
will have to attend to. When the census
man calls upon the head of a Toronto
family, the latter will have to supply
the following: Nane, age, place of birth,
occupation, nationality, religion, business, etc. The same formula will be attached to the name of each member
of the family. If he has a visitor, say
from Ottawa, the visitor will not be
registered here. He will be registered
at Ottawa.
Then there is a provision whereby
the enumerators must learn whether
women are single, married, divorced:
or legally separated. The men must j
divulge whether they suffer from disease,
giving the name of any; also whether they
carry insurance.
One can easily imagine some irate
spinster saying: "That's none of your j
business," when the man with the book
ventures to question her regarding injuries eceived and compensation by way
of insurance.
Schedule-No. 11 is devoted to matters
pertaining to fisheries; and there is one
relative to furs and undressed skins of
forest animals. Another relates to dwellings, and seeks information as to the
kind of house, number of acres occupied,
whether owned or leased, fruit trees
on property, etc.
A census of the forest producrs will
compile information as to the kind of
timber, and will be gathered from farmers
and lessees of timber limits.

THE POWER CONTRACT
To-night the city council will receive propositions from prospective power
companies for the installation of a temporary lighting plant. The Tsimpsean Power
Company will propose to deliver power to the city temporarily from a steam plant
at a price which will permit of the city selling 16 c.p. lights at about 75c per lamp
per month. In two year's time they will deliver water developed electric power to
the city at a maximum rate of $45 per h.p., and a minimum rate of $30 per h.p.,
but the city must take 3000 h.p. the first year and 9000 h.p., the seventh year of
the contract. The contract is to be for 25 years.
There are features in the offer which commend itself to the city although a
25 year contract is a very long bargain to tie up to. The delivery of power to the city
gives municipal control if not municipal ownership and even if the whole available
power of the Tsimpsean company is taken the city will not have sufficient for all
its requirements within a few years. Within the next few years we may get cheaper
power but at the present time the price is not excessive. The temporary plant will
give cheaper lights than the city engineer's estimate.
OUR PROXIMITY TO THE ORIENT
Captain Hand, of the steamer Inverkip, did a more marvellous feat in reaching
here than did the captain of the Belle of Scotland. The latter had never been in
these waters before yet he found his way without chart. But this was by the inside
passage, while Captain Hand, without previous knowledge of the waters or local
chart, came in direct from the ocean, and by doing so saved three days on his voyage
from Kobe. This proves the correctness of the claim that this port is nearer to
Japan than any other Pacific coast port by several hundred miles.
The receipt of a telegram from the mayor of Ottawa by the mayor of Prince
Rupert offering congratulations on the single tdx plan is a compliment to this city
but the electors will probably recall the fact that the exemption of improvements
was a purely Manson policy at the late municipal elections. The Optimist advocated
the policy long before the city was incorporated.
Walter P. Porep special agent for two well known fire insurance companies,
recently visited Prince Rupert and decided not to accept business here because he
found so much litter and waste matter on the streets and alleys. This is a feature
of municipal duty that has been overlooked up to the present. Why not clean up?
If the lowest tender for the big cut on Second avenue grade is accepted as it
doubtless will, be the contract will fall to S.P. MeMordie who has been doing splendid work on the sewers. Mr. MeMordie has had large experience on heavy rock
work before coming to Prince Rupert and he will assuredly give the city a good job.
He intends putting in a big plant with steam drills, and heavy derricks. The shots
will all be blanketed with a stell net.
It is fortunate for the city that no one contractor was lowest tenderer on all
four sections of Second avenue grading work. It would be inadvisable to give all
the work to one firm, which would then control the situation and possibly tie the
work up indefinitely.
Pres. Chas. M. Hays deserves the appreciation of the City of Prince Rupert
for his continued interest and good efforts in bringing to this city some of the most
representative men of the Empire. In his party this time are men who can do more
to build up Prince Rupert tyhan any who have yet visited the city. In getting such
men as Sir George Doughty and Mr. G. B. Hunter interested in Prince Rupert
the president of the G. T. P. is developing a policy that is worthy of the position he
holds.

the effect that the city is empowered to
remove any building which in the
opinion of the Mayor, Council and
Health officers is a menace to the public
safety or health,and that if the owner
is unwilling to remove any such building
the council may serve an order by which
the building may be pulled down at the
owners  expense.

FUNDS FOR CITY
IMPROVEMENT
ARRANGEMENTS     OF      FINANCE
COMMITTEE
City's Guarantee Required Before
Advances Made for Works in Any
Sections of Prince Rupert.���Bank
of Montreal   Offers Advance.
At Saturday night's council The
Finance Committee reported that arrangements had been practically concluded with the Bank of Montreal for
the advance necessary for the carrying on of the works in Section one.
Aid. Patullo pointed out that it was
necessary for the city council to guarantee the repayment of moneys advanced
by the bank for works in all sections
of the city. Aid. Hilditch thought it
rather late in the day to discover this.
"I believe that even yet it might prove
better for the city to get back and have
the grading done by a general fund"
he said, but he thought that perhaps
Local Improvement Bonds would be as
good as a general fund, and wanted more
time for consideration before the council
passed upon the report.
The mayor said that it was necessary
that arrangements as explained in the
report be made before the contracts
could be signed for the works. The
finance committee had made these
arrangements and now the work could
proceed.
Aid. Lynch asked if Local Improvement Bonds without the city guarantee
would be as good as with the city
guarantee.
Aid. PatuHo said that he was willing
that the report be allowed to lie over
till Monday night, but 8th avenue. Contracts would need to be signed in order
that the work might proceed.
Aid. Hilditch. "I understand that we
can have this money it we pass by-laws
guaranteeing repayment. We don't
know what those by-laws are yet. What
does the Bank of Montreal want?"
Aid. Pattullo. "The Bank simply
wishes the assurance that the city
guarantees payment, otherwise delay
will be caused for the bank will require
the approval of its solicitors before
the money can be advanced."
The motion that the Finance Committees' report be adopted was carried.

THE   PRINCE   RUPERT    OPTIMIST
CORNER OWNERS
RAISE PROTEST
AGAINST    THEIR     ASSESSMENT
FOR   GRADING
Mr. Weston Presents Matter Before
Council But Mayor and Council
Feel that Question Cannot Now
Be Re-opened.
A deputation of the owners of corner
lots in Prince Rupert Section one
headed by Mr. Weston waited on the
city council on Saturday night and at
the request of the Mayor Mr. Weston
set forth the representations of the other
corner lot owners, that the assessment
laid upon their property by the council
was excessive and disproportionate to
that borne by the inside lots. Aid.
Pattullo asked Mr. Weston how much
more revenue would a corner lot bring
as compared with an inside lot regarded
from a business point of view.
Mr. Weston replied that he thought
that in a city like Prince Rupert which
was practically a single tax city it was
hardly fair to tax any property on the
basis of the prospective return from
business. Common thoroughfares might
well be provided from the|city's immense
revenue . It did not require an extra
tax on corner lots to provide in Prince
Rupert what is usually provided by
nature in other cities. Because nature
nad not been kind to Prince Rupert
in the matter of grading that was no
reason why corner lot owners should
bear more than their share of the burden
especially when they were ready to
pay their full share in every other
assessment.
"The blocks in this city are very
short" Mr. Weston said "If they were
longer the corner lots would be so much
the more valuable. Regarding the
axiom that the shorter the lot the
more benefit it derived from cross streets,
Mr. Weston said that the cross thoroughfares in this city were also short and that
therefore their effect should not be
overestimated.
"You have spoken from the point of
view of a corner lot owner Mr. Weston"
said the Mayor " but you understand
of course that the council in arriving at
the value. It seems a funny thing if the
city of Prince Rupert cannot supply
streets for the convenience of the citizens
without charging corner lot owners
excessively."
Aid. Pattullo here suggested that it
was rather late in the day for this, matter
to be brought before the council.
"No matter how willing we may be to
take the question up" he said " we can
hardly do so now. It would mean openin
up the whole question again. The most
it can do is to effect the imposition
of further assessment."
"Well" said Mr. Weston " this is
a matter which if it becomes known is
likely to prejudice values of corner lot
property throughout the whole city,
and for twenty years too. to put this
burden of even rough grading on corner
lot owners for twenty years is a serious
matter.
"I believe" he went on " that if a
man were to keep a ledger upon this
matter for twenty years, it would be
found that the inside lot would turn out
more valuable than the corner lot in
most cases."
"I fear that we can hardly alter the
assessment now "said the mayor as he
thanked Mr. Weston for his courteous
statement of the position.
"To do so would mean to call off and
re-open the whole affair which would
take up too much time."
Mr. Weston thanked the mayor and
council and withdrew leaving the city
hall accompanied by the deputation of
corner lot owners who had atteneed the
council meeting.

Robert Connor Faces Serious Charge
This   Morning
--^^^^^^^��� the cannery.    A few minutes later he
this assessment took into consideration I met connors coming through a gateway
Robert Connors, a man well up in
years, appeared before Magistrate McMullin this morning on the charge of
shooting with the intent to kill, at Mr.
Victor Larsen of the North Pacific
Cannery, Port Essington on Sunday.
Larsen stated the circumstances of the
occurrence. It appears that accused had
been drinking heavily and was shooting
at a mark with Paul Weeks. Larsen
stopped the shooting and Connors
asked him if he had anything against
him.   Larsen said "no" and went into
all circumstances, and was in no way
prejudiced against the owners of corner
lots."
Aid. Lynch explained to Mr. Weston
the principals applied to this assessment
and cited the clause in the Municipal
Act relating to the proportions of the
cost of sewers to be borne by corner lot
owners which was even more than that
laid on Prince Rupert owners for grading
etc. Aid. Lynch pointed out that the
work of making proper thoroughfares
was considerably more likely to bring
additional benefit to corner lot owners
than the construction of sewers in wich
all lots might be said to have about
equal interests.
"Where do you get your 87 per cent?"
asked Mr. Weston of Aid Lynch with
some warmth.
"It arises because you have five times
the benefit in your corner lots that
inside lots have " returned Aid. Lych.
"The city is acting as trustee in this
matter of local improvements to see
to the interests of all owners."
"If the inside lot owner pays tax on
his valuation, why should not the
corner lot owner be similarly assessed?"
asked Mr.. Weston.
Aid. Pattullo asked what would be a
fair estimate of the actual increase of
value between a corner lot over an inside
lot, to which Mr. Weston replied that
to the best of his knowledge it would
be about 33 1-3 per cent, but added that
the corner lot owner would not care about
paying any access tax when the basis j
of value taken for assessment was not
given them.
"We have paid for all we have got."
he went on " and we are willing to pay
for all we get. There is only one
way in which this assessment can be made
with justice to all. concerned. That is
be assessment on the true value of the
property but not by guess work as to
in a fence there, and the shot was fired,
the bullet lodging in the floor behind
Larsen.
(��,. Tom Hanson, engineer of the gasoline
lainch "Eve" gave evidence as to Connors
condition and the taking of the gun from
him.. There was only one empty shell
in the gun and Connors made the remark
some time afterwards that Larsen said
he had shot at him but there was no
charge in his gun. He then fell into a
drunken stupor.
Accused told Magistrate McMullin
that he did not remember anything about
the affair, and was committed for trial.
He elected to be tried summarily by
Judge Young and after the evidence
for the crown had been taken said that
he would reserve his defence until two
witnesses Paul and Frank Weeks had
been brought from Port Essington.

Vienna, Aug., 24.���The case of Archduke Johann Salvator, the romantic
John Orth is again before the public.
This time, however, he has not been
rediscovered, but his heirs have petitioned the Austrian courts to declare
him officially dead so that his estate,
now valued at something like $5,000,000,
may be disposed of. The application
to presume death has been made in
the imperial court at Vienna by the
Archduke Joseph Ferdinaud, one of the
nephews of the Archduke Johann Salvator. The court directed a postponement of the application for a period
of six months, in order to permit the
filing of any proofs, that Johann Orth
was still alive. The Archduke Johann
Salvator, son of Leopold 11., grand duke
of Tuscany, and an archduke of Austria
was born in 1852.
In 1889 he met Milly Stubel, the
beautiful daughter of a Viennese tradesman, who was appearing as a dancer
in the royal opera. The Archduke
was smitten with love of the dancer
and was resolved to possess her whatever sacrifice it might involve. For
a long time the girl did not suspect the
rank of her lover. But at length the
secret was revealed to her. He professed himself willing to marry the
woman of his heart. This, of course
meant a breach with Emperor Francis
and the sacrifice of his country and
all his social prospects. He decided to
begin life afresh and throw his birthright to the winds. He married the
lady of his choice in a London register
office and bought the Santa Margharita,
an iron sailing ship of about 1400 tons
at Yamburg. As Johann Orth he ran
out from Chatham on his first voyage
to South America with a cargo of cement.
There the captain fell ill and had to
be paid off, most of the crew following
suit.
Johann Orth took over the command himself and engaged a fresh
crew. At Iquique the Santa Margherita sailed for Valparaiso, doubling the
Horn. Since that time neither ship nore
any occupants had been heard of. The
petition to presume death entered in
the Vienna courts claims that the best
proof of death is that no more letters have been received from Johann
by his mother to whom he wrote regularly before. Exhaustive inquiries
by Austrian consuls in South America,
it is pointed out, have produced negative results. Johann's will, which is
deposited in Vienna, is still unopened.
From time to time reports have been
published that "Johann Orth" is still
alive. He has been stated to be living
with his brother, the Archduke Louis
Salvator, who spends most of the year
on one of the Ionian islands. He has
been recognized in the South Sea
islands and in Algiers, where he interfered with a policeman who was
illtreating a woman, and was expelled
in consequence. He has been indentified
in Chili, Australia, New Zealand and
Japan. An American newspaper in
1909 claimed to have found him in
Painesville, Ohio, working as a machinist for $16 a week.
But thc years have passed and, notwithstanding occasional reports of
Johann Orth's reappearance, no authentic news of the missing archduke
has been received, and insurance companies have had to pay the money for
which his life was insured.

MIKKLESEN RESCUED
Weil-Known Arctic Explorer Wrecked
On Greenland Coast
Copenhagen, Aug. 25.���Capt. Mik-
klesen's expedition, which sailed June
20th, 1909, on the Danish ship Alabama
in search for the bodies of the Erick-
son Greenland expedition, was wrecked
during the winter on the coast of East
Greenland, according to advices received here.
Capt. Mikklesen and the entire party
were saved and succeeded in effecting
a landing on Shannon island, off the
coast of King William Land. From this
point they were rescued by another
ship. The news was brought from
Tromsoe by a steamer cruising in the
Polar sea.
WOMAN   LAWYER'S   FEE
The largest legal fee ever given to a
woman attorney was won by Miss
Mary E. Miller, a Chicago attorney,
when a judge in Judge's Gibbon's court
gave her a verdict for $32,000. The verdict was against the heirs of the late
John Bross, former lieutenant-governor
of Illinois, whom Miss Miller represented in a will litigation. To make her
victory all the more complete Miss
Miller's fee does not come near equaling in amount the enormous sums paid
at different times to her brother members of the bar in Cook County and
the country at large, but it establishes a
new mark for women lawyers of the
United States.���Chicago Inter-Ocean.

Wellington, Aug., 24.���The revenue returns for the June quarter bear
testimony to the continued prosperity
of New Zealand. Notwithstanding
substantial increases in the expenditures of several of the departments,
there is a surplus of $1,200,000. The
total revenue was $11,280,000 for the
quarter.
As anticipated the motion of no
confidence against the government on
the land policy question was defeated
in the house of representatives. There
was a smaller majority, however, than
was expected.
The value of the gold output of the
Dominion for the month just ended
amounted to $1,077,075 which is practically the same as that for the corresponding month of 1909.
The outlook in the chief industries
of the Dominion is all that could be
desired. Business is flourishing in the

Canada's    Credit    Abroad
It is comparatively easy for Canada
to maintain its credit abroad in good
times. Then, one of the chief necessities
is to squelch the undesirable promoter
and his promotions. In a period of
depression, the matter is more difficult;
it becomes a question of running the
economic machinery with considerably
less monetary oil than usual. At this
point, the strength of the banking system
and the foresight of bank managers are
tested. If, prior to depression, credit
was extended too freely, when dull
times arrive, unwisely granted credit
is likely to bring a crash, and consequently a severe blow to Canadian
credit abroad.
Three years ago, when the United
States was suffering from industrial
depression and stock panic, Canada
escaped a similar fate. But mistakes
had been made in this country, foolish
speculation had been allowed to go
beyond bounds, with the result that the
Dominion learned an important economic
lesson with the minimum of economic
suffering.
The growth and development of
Canada is a pleasing task. No necessity
exists for forcing that growth. It we
borrow too heavily, absorb new population too rapidly, and assume generally
a fast gait, trouble will follow. Fortunately the men at the helm are steering a good course and have thoroughly
studied the chart.���Monetary Times.
COLOGNIAL
Mrs. Oldbludde���I hear that you have
very fine Co'onial furniture in the house
you have rented.
Mrs. Newrich���I don't know, ma'am,

Whisky Bath Unknown
London, August 23.���The whisky
bath is something new to London
physicians, and the report that it has
been so beneficial in restoring Mr.
Rockefeller to vigor came to them
as a surprise. They use spirits of various
kinds in the form of lotions. Milk is
sometimes used for a bath, but whisky���!
On the other hand, eau de Cologne baths
are sometimes taken by women, who
find them stimulating and refreshing.
But the alcoholic bath is a thing that
English physicians appear to have no
faith in.

Hon. Thomas Taylor, provincial minister of public works is to make his
deferred tour of the Queen Charlotte
islands, upon which he will be accompanied by Mr. William Manson, M. P.
P., representative of the district. The
visit to the Queen Charlotte is in the
natural following out of the minister's
departmental policy of putting himself
personally and directly in touch with
conditions in every section of the country in which public works are being
carried on.
There is much being done at present
in the way of colonization road making,
bridge and wharf building etc., in the
Queen Charlottes, and personal inspection will the better enable the active
and energetic head of the great spending
department of the province to intelligently and efficiently adminster that
portion of the public business particularly committed to his care.
It is probable that no decision as
to the government's railway policy with
respect to Graham island will be arrived
at until Hon. Mr. Taylor's return.

PLEASED WITH

PRESIDENT HAYS PARTY RETURN
' FROM   TRIP
Sir George Doughty Entranced With
The Scenery and Believes it Will
Become a Great Tourist Route as
Soon    as   the   Railway   Opens.
Chamberlain;   what   do  you   think   of
the  Skeena  scenery?"
"Yes, I have travelled some. Was
over sixty thousand miles for the company
last year. Yes, the Skeena river scenery
is remarkably fine."
REPRESENTING   CAPITAL
The President Hays party arrived on
the Port Simpson from their trip up the
Skeena about eight o'clock last night, as
they were seated at dinner on board the
boat. Soon afterward they were all in the
lobby of Prince Rupert Inn and enthusiastically expressing the pleasure they
had enjoyed on the excursion. In these
talks the prime object of the trip, that
of going over the completed section of
the railway and seeing the tracklayer
at work, seemed to be entirely overlooked
in the recollection of the beautiful
scenery of the Skeena river and the
romantic grandeur of the Kitselas canyon.
"I have travelled quite a good deal
as you know, "Mrs. Chamberlain was
remarking to Hugo Ross, " but I don't
think I have seen anything quite so,
beautiful as the scenery down the Skeena.
"Lady Dougherty and myself have
enjoyed the trip immensely," Sir George
Dougherty was saying. "The Skeena
is a magnificent stream in every respect."
"No, I was not speaking in regard to
its fishing possibilities, though we did
see some fine fish. It was altogether in
another regard. It was in a scenic sense
and its value as an attraction to the
tourist trade. Yes, we saw some good
looking faming land and I have no doubt
the land in the neighborhood of Lakelse
will be found productive. But above
all you have on the Skeena what Is to
my mind the most beautiful scenery that
can be found in the world; soft and sylvan
in spots, marked by a rugged grandeur
in others. The railway and two of three
palatial hotels between here and Hazelton and the railway, and the tourist
travel of the world will be turned in this
direction."
Lord Clinton and others were enthusiastic as to the opportunities the country
offered for hunting of big game and
salmon fishing. In regard to the latter
Mr. Chamberlain slyly observed: "We
showed them some salmon running in
Trout creek, near Kitselas. We put in
there for the purpose. The visitors
seemed to consider the number of fish
marvellous. But it was not worth
noting to those who know the country,
for, as you know, the salmon run is
nearly over. But it impressed the
visitors."
"You   have   travelled   some,   Mr.
Representative   of   Large   Financial
Firm Makes Another Visit Here
G. K. Killam, of the firm of Allen,
Laing & Killam, leading financial agents
of Winnipeg, came in on the Prince
George, accompanied by Hugo Ross,
of Winnipeg. They came here from the
Queen Charlotte Islands, where they have
been making quite an extended investigation as to conditions there, both
as to fanning lands and the coal deposits.
It is probably that some of the best
coal propositions there might have been
taken up at once but for the litigation
that is almost sure to ensue owing to
so many locations being matters of
legal contest, and this, in some instances,
may be said of the farm lands.
Both gentlemen went on to Stewart
by the Prince George to spend a week
or two, making a final examination into
propositions Mr. Ross has already looked
into. The firm of which Mr. Killam
is a partner controls considerable English
capital, and it is probable he may find
investments for some of it in this part of
the country.

an ex mayor of Ottawa, was read in
council on Saturday night congratulating
the mayor on the fact that it has been
decided in Prince Rupert to tax land only
and not improvements, a landable and
progressive policy.

CARDINAL FOR
THE DOMINION
POPE TO APPOINT ONE AT NEXT
CONSISTORY
This Has Long Been Understood and
It is Believed That in November a
Red Hat Will Be Conferred on
Canadian   Representative.
Montreal, Aug. 24.���The Rome correspondent of the Tablet points out
there are now io fewer than eighteen
vacancies and twelve cardinals less than
when Pius X, came to the Pontifical
throne.
But there is at least good reason to
believe that his holiness intends to hold
a Consistory in November, which will
fill many of the vacant places. It has
been taken for granted, usually, that two
of the most certain "creations" at the
next Consistory will be those of Mgr.
Garnito di Belmonte, Pontifical Nuncio
at Vienna, and Mgr. Mendez Bello, Pa-
tirarch of Lisbon���but it has been an
open secret that there have been some
difficulties in the way.
The holy father is determined, it is
also said, to bestow the honor of the
purple on the Archbishop of Westminster. Among other churchmen mentioned are the Apostolic Delegate to Washington, Mgr. Falconio, who may be replaced in this office by Mgr. Agius O.
S. B., now finishing the work set him
five years ago in the Philippines.
There are at present only two cardinals
among the bishops of Spain (though
there are also two Spanish cardinals in
Rome) and it is likely that at least one
other will be added; France, which used
to possess six cardinals or more, has only
three, and this number, too, will be increased, as no fewer than three French
cardinals have died since the last Cardin-
alatal Consistory. New cardinals for the
United States, Canada, Germany, Aud-
tria, Hungary? At present it is quite
impossible to say.
STRUCK BY A ROCK
N. A. Sweet Met with a Nasty Accident in Manhole
N. A. Sweet, sub-contractor on the big
manhole on the sewer, met with a serious
accident this morning. Mr. Sweet was
working at the bottom of the manhole
and one of the 10-inch sewer pipes was
standing by the edge at the top. A gust
of wind dislodged the pipe which fell
down in the hole striking a projecting
rock. The rock broke and fell on Mr.
Sweet's head and cut a nasty gash. Dr.
Tremayne was called and the injured
man was removed to his home where
the wound was dressed. It will be several
days before he will be around again.
