DR. CRIPPEN
ON HIS TRIAL
NO NEW EVIDENCE INTRODUCEr
THE  FIRST  DAY
Miss Le Neve Refused To See Her
Father Except on Condition That
He Makes No Reference To Her
Relations   With   Crippen.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sep. 6.���A great crowd
gathered around the building when the
court room opened for the trial of Crippen
Bow street for a time being rendered
impassable. But few managed to gain
admission to the court and a large squad
ef special police kept the crowd moving.
Even the reporters had to undergo a
careful scrutiny, and none were permitted to enter the court except those
properly creditted to leading Londun
newspapers.
There was a great array of legal
talent and much formality in the proceedings. The case against Dr. Crippen
charged with murder, was begun but
there was nothing new in the evidence,
the greater part of which was in regard
to the finding of the body of Mrs.
Crippen.
Miss Le Neve was formally arraigned
as an accessory and also the secoud
count of the indictment that of harboring
and assisting a fugitive from justice was
read to her. She pleaded not guilty to
both counts.
The prosecution stated that it would
proceed against the girl only as an accessory after the fact, and they did not
claim, so far, that she had any real
knowledge of the alleged murder. The
second count was to be tried separately.
While she has been awaiting trial Miss
Le Neve has refused to see her father
unless he promised to speak on casual
subjects only and not to refer to the
Crippen case. She also refused to be
questioned by him as to her relations with
Crippen. He saw here a few minutes only
the daughter being much more agitated
than he but both relieved when the interview was over.
CHAMBERLAIN SENDS WIRE
The General Manager Has Suggestion
For Arbitrating Tax Dispute
W. C. C. Mehan, received the following telegram from E. J. Chamberlain
on the 4th:
"Would suggest to citizens committee
that they formulate a proposition based
on Prajsident's letter to Mayor and submit."
It would appear from thus that after
all there has been a proposition from the
G. T. P.
The aldermen endeavor to deny the
charge that the Hays communications
were considered in star chamber sessions
but the communications from the G. T. P.
have not yet been made public. They
were not read at the council meetings
along with the other communications.
"Why should they be kept dark?" is
the   question  raised  by   the  citizens.
Teddy Was All There
Fargo, Sep. 6.���(Special)���While Roosevelt was speaking here a man in the
aufience made a dash for the platform
and called the speaker a liar. Roosevelt
helped to eject the disturber.
New   Westminister   Defeated
Vancouver, Sep. 6��� (Special)���Vancouver lacrosse team is coming forward
in great shape. It succeeded yesterday
in beating the New Westminster champions by a score of seven to one.
CITIZENS TAKE DP ASSESSMENT
Ultimatum of President Hays Discussed and Thomas Dunn Appointed Delegate to Open Up Fresh Negotiations With
Railway Company at Vancouver.
The difficulty in regard to the Grand
Trunk Pacific assessment has so exercised the minds of prominent citizens
of Prince Rupert that after a preliminary informal conclave on Friday
they assembled in the City Hall on
Saturday afternoon to meet the mayor
and members of the city council and
discuss the matter, stating their view that
immediate steps shouW be taken towards negotiation with the Grand
Trunk Pacific on the subject with a
view to arriving at an amicable settlement.
When those interested has assembled
the mayor briefly stated the purpose of
the meeting and P. I. Palmer called on
Tom Dunn to act as spokesman and
give expression to the citizens' point of
view regarding the assessment question.
Thos. Dunn said that after a conversation withjMr. D'Arcy Tate during
which Mr. Tate had said that owing
to the assessment deadlock the G. T. P.
would certainly shut down their work
here for an indefinite period, he had felt
that the citizens should make some
move to have the matter amicably
arranged. "It is not up to us as citizens
to fight the G. T. P." he said, and explained that the citizens' meeting had
been called for that afternoon because
C. M. Hays and party were leaving
Vancouver on Tuesday and it was
urgently necessary that the matter
should be looked into before Mr. Hays
left the coast
Some Mistake in Matter
" "We all understand, I think," said
Mr. Dunn "that the assessment on some
portions of the G. T. P. property is
excessively high, and if this is so there
is no reason why it should be. If there
has been some mistake in the matter
owing to letters not reaching their
destination there is no reason why the
city should force the G. T. P. to pay.
"We are agreeable to abide by the result of government legislation in the
adjustment of the matter " he continued
"but we do think it time that
an arrangement was amicably arrived
at. We shall never have so opportune
a time again for negotiation."
The mayor said there seemed to be
some misunderstanding regarding what
had actually taken place at the council
representatives' meeting with C. M.
Hays. He re-iterated the point that Mr.
Hays had been asked to submit a proposition and had refused to do so.
Hays Wants Exemption
"It is not a question of getting that
assessment reduced on the part of the
G. T. P. but one of abolishing it altogether" said the mayor, "and if the
assessment is cut off the city improvement works cannot go on. The city is
as anxious to treat the G. T. P. fairly
as the citizens here present."
Thos. Dunn���"Then get into negotiations with them and see if they will
arrange this matter."
Aid. Pattullo���"We tried this but
Mr. Hays wants what is practically
exemption���that is a tax of only about
$6000 for fifteen years. It was represented to Mr. Hays that the G. T. P.
hotel and other improvements were not
to be taxed. The G. T. P. own so much
of the townsite that if the assessment
is reduced it simply means that we can
not go on with the public works."
Thos. Dunn���"They don't want the
taxes reduced on their townsite property
but merely on their right of way."
Aid. Pattullo���"They want more than
that."
Thos. Dunn���"Whatever they want
is a matter for negotiation. Get into
touch with them."
Ask For Proposition
P. I. Palmer thought that Mr. Dunn
had expressed the feeling of the citizens
concerned very well. Then Aid. Pattullo
suggested that if the citizens were not
satisfied with the situation they should
prepare a proposition and submit it to
the council.
Thos. Dunn���"Not at all. Let the
council suggest something."
Aid. Pattullo���"Is it your wish then
that the council should suggest to the
G. T. P. that they are willing to exempt
G. T. P. property for fifteen years?"
P. I. Palmer was in the act of saying
that he thought that might be the feeling
of the meeting when he was interrupted
by cries of "No! No!" from every direction, and Thos. Dunn said "Not for fifteen years."
"Well" said Aid. Pattullo "that is
just what C. M. Hays wants us to do,
The Optimist Was Alive
After some references on the part of
the citizens and councillors present,
to the presence since the beginning of
the meeting of the Optimist reporter,
and the question of how much of the
proceedings it was desirable to make
public Aid. Mclntyre rose expressing
satisfaction at seeing so many prominent citizens taking so active an
interest of the city.
"You will find" he said "that the
council and the citizens are really unanimous on all matters affecting the
best interests of Prince Rupert."
The matter of the meeting with Mr.
Hays about which the citizens seemed to
be nervous, he went on to say, was not a
formal meeting binding on the council.
The situation was open for any negotiations that might later be necessary.
"But," he said "the matter is important
as affecting our revenue .considerably,
and no alderman or citizen is antagonistic to the G. T. P. The attitude
taken up by the council is a sensible
one. There was a court of revision.
The G. T. P. had the opportunity to
appeal and did not appeal. It seemed
almost babyish on the part of the G.
T. P. to want the assessment reduced
now. Besides they are able to pay.
A Little Give and Take
Aid. Mclntyre agreed, however, that
there ought to be a little give and take
in the matter. "I would be quite willing to open up any sort of negotiations
with the G. T. P. that would be to our
mutual advantage, but at the same time
we have to maintain our dignity as
citizens."
Aid. Pattullo asked if the citizens
present had any suggestion to make.
"The only thing we suggest" said Mr.
Law is that we get into communication
with Mr. Tate and let him know that
the citizens have met and desire to
enter   into   negotiations."
Would   Be   Undignified
Aid. Lynch said that after what had
occurred he did not see how the council
could approach Mr. Hays without a
proposition. Mr. Hays had asked for
exemption first because he said the
assessment was ten times too high,
and second to delay their improvements,
and Mr. HayB had spoken of Port Simpson.
"It would be undignified on our part
after they refused to give us a proposition here, to go now and beg them
on the same question." said Aid. Lynch
warming up to his subject "whether the
assessment is too high or too low, I
will not attempt to say. It was made by
the assessor appointed by government,
and I for one will not interfere with the
assessment except to submit it to the
people.
Doesn't Give a Cent
"C. M. Hays, I believe," he went on,
"will build his shops here just when he
needs them and not a day sooner. As
for his hotel, I don't care five cents
whether he builds his hotel here or not.
I don't believe Vancouver is one bit
the better of having the Hotel Vancouver. Seattle and Tacoma cities were
benefited a great deal more by the
enterprise of individual hotel managers
in business for themselves and better
than any hired hotel manager could ever
be.
"C. M. Hays' reference to Port
Simpson is all talk" went on Aid. Lynch.
"We know that the G.T.P. has expended
too much money on this townsite to
change it now. They are fixed here
irrevocably. The man who will most
regret it if the news is published broad
cast to the world that he has made war
on Prince Rupert his own chosen terminal will be C. M. Hays. The G. T. P.
have sold millions of dollars worth of
property to investors who have trusted
to their representations regarding Prince
Rupert. The G. T. P. want millions more
and want th&n from the English investor. A prominent capitalist with Mr.
Hays' party said to me 'Let the news
that C. M. Hays is at war with Prince
Rupert be published and he will find it
difficult to rustle for money in the English
markets to carry on his plans.
"I will not give you one minute's assistance in formulating a proposition"
concluded Aid. Lynch emphatically "I
speak for myself remember; I am not
speaking  for  the  council."
Against Any Reduction
M. M. Stephens spoke rather in support of the council's action. He thought
it would be unwise of the council to
submit a proposition now. Let the G. T.
P. submit one if they had one. If the
G. T. P. wanted to go to Port Simpson
they'd go whether their Prince Rupert
assessment were reduced or not. He was
not in favor of a reduction of the waterfront assessment to six or seven thousand
dollars a year, and did not think any
blame attached to the mayor or aldermen interviewing Mr. Hays.
The matter of the interview with C. M.
Hays was again dwelt upon, Aid. Patullo stating that Mr. Hays had continually
reduced the matter to the simple question
"Do you or do you now want these
improvements to go on?" C. C. Westenhaver wanted to know if the assessment were a proper assessment, and if it
were based on a true valuation. f
ALMOST LOST
LIFE FOR HAT
PRINCE GEORGE PASSENGER HAS
A CHILLY BATH
Smart Rescue By Captain and Crew
Of the Steamers British Columbia
And Prince George Late on Sunday
Evening.
Prompt and seamanly action on the
part of the commander and crews of the
steamers Prince George and British
Columbia at a point within a days steaming of Prince Rupert on the way to Vancouver averted what might have been
a drowning tragedy.
The Prince George on the way to
Prince Rupert on the latest trip had
just passed the British Columbia when
the cry "man overboard" was raised
and the Prince George was immediately
stopped and sent astern while a boat
crew sprang to their stations.
Meanwhile the British Columbia had
been signalled and her captain also
lowered away a boat and sent a man aloft
to look out for the dark spot on the water
that told where a passenger from the
Prince George was struggling: for his
life.
By good luck and good eyesight the
drowning man was spotted smartly
from the British .Columbia and in about
fifteen minutes he was hauled out
drenched and shivering and put aboard
his own steamer.
The passenger who desired that his
name be witheld, stated to his rescuers
that his hat had blown overboard, and
in the act of trying to save it he had himself overbalanced and followed his headpiece in to the chilly water. He was
naturally relieved at being so smartly
rescued. To lose his life for his hat was
not by any means a plan to his mind.
HAS LOST THE SERIES
Vancouver Team Pulls Up But Again
Gives Way to  Spokane
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Sep 6.���The local team
won a double header on Sunday and thus
broke even once more with' Spokane,
but in the Labor day game she lost,
and this meant the loss of the series
by one game. She has still a chance for
the pennant, however. On Saturday
there was no game between the two,
it being called off on account of rain.
At the Tacoma the local team beat
Seattle by  score of three to one.
PAINFUL FRACTURE
Prevents Hans Olsen From   Appearing     as     Witness
A painful accident occurred on Saturday night to Hans Olsen of the Hotel
Skandia. While passing along the sidewalk by the Royal Bank block his
foot slipped and he fell heavily, fracturing a small bone in his leg. He was
removed to his home by the police, and
the injury was attended to. The fracture
is not a serious one, but will prevent
Olsen from attending his duties for
several weeks.
He was to have appeared as a witness
in the Police Court this morning, in
the case of Eric Rosang formerly in
partnership with Olsen who was charged
with having sold whisky to Alex. Nor-
berg, but was of course unable to attend.

for development purposes,
Mr. Whiting expressed himself as
being very well pleased with the showing
on the property, the remarkably high
grade of the ore being its most attractive feature. Present plans call for
considerable work this coming winter
and a vigorous campaign next summer.
The claims involved in the deal lie
close to the well known and rich properties owned by Carr brothers of Hazelton and Bulkley valley, and Wm.
Hunter. Besides being a high grade of
copper ore the veins in Hunter basin
carry silver values running in some cases
to several hundred ounces to the ton.
Copper City Cable Ferry
The cable ferry which during the past
month has been in operation between
Copper City and the north side of the
Skeena river, is kept busy every day
in the week ferrying passengers across
the river, and all who have so far crossed the river on it, pronounce it the
"slickest" ferry they have ever seen.
First Shipment Encouraging
Returns have been received of the
values contained in the trial shipment
of about four tons of Lead King ore
sent to the Trail smelter several weeks
ago. To be exact, the dryweight of the
ore was 8,225 pounds, assaying 92.4
ounces of silver, 38.6 per cent lead,
and 25.6 per cent zinc. Freight from
Hazelton to Trail consumed $91.42
of the values, and the treatment charge
of $10.50 per ton took $43.18, leaving
a balance of $109.19, without taking
into consideration the lead bounty of
three-quarters of a cent a pound on the
lead, which will amount to a total of
$23.76 more.
This is a remarkable showing.    Con
sidering the fact that the ore was practically found on the surface within three
months after the claims were located,
it is still more remarkable. No attempt
was made to sort the ore and after
it was landed in town last fall, people
who thought they knew did not hesitate
to say it would not pay its way to the
smelter.
The high percentage of zinc is proof
that there was no attempt to sort, as
a reduction in the zinc would have been
the first thing sought in that line.
While it is quite possible to ship
ore of this or a better grade at a profit
under present conditions, it would be
nothing short of folly to do so to any extent beyond that of tests. With the laying
of steel on the second section of the G.
T. P. in another twelve months shipment costs will be very much reduced,
effecting a saving of much more than
interest on the amount involved.
Work on Kinman Property
On the Erie work is continuing. The
contract for fifty feet of sinking is completed. The paystreak has passed into
the hanging wall and it will be necessary
to cross-cut for it. Surface stripping
shows the ledge to be continuous. At
the beginning of the week an oreshoot
275 feet long has been exposed on the
surface and was at'-depth nine feet wide.
To Start Development Work
Wm. Dalton, foreman for G. Lloyd
Faulkner and associates, who have bonded
five claims on Fourmile, making a cash
payment of $8,000, has returned from
Vancouver and gone to Fourmile to
inaugurate work on the property, which
he states is to be carriei on all winter
with a good force of men.

The present season promises to see
a greater number of big game hunters
in this province and the contiguous
Yukon than in any previous season,
the influx of moneyed men in search
of royal sport being in large measure
due to the energetic and systematic
advertising campaign conducted by the
government.
No fewer than eight parties are
looked for as a result of the interest
excited through British Columbia's
fine exhibit at the Vienna sportsmen's
show, and the eloquent presentment
of the province's opportunities for
sport made by the commissioner in
charge, Mr. Warburton Pike. The
majority of the already arriving hunters, however, are from the Eastern
States, and all are men of means. As
a result it is confidently to be expected that while enjoying the sport which
British Columbia provides for lovers
of the hills and valleys, they can
scarcely be blind to the opportunities
offering also in the way of industrial
and commerial investments.
The majority of the new arrivals
are said to prefer payment of the full
year's license for shooting and fishing,
Count Campbell, who is now in Atlin,
is hoping for a later chance for sheep,
setting the fashion in this respect.
Mr. Peters, of Columbua, Ohio, has
left for the headwaters of the McMillan, intending to be out at least
two months, with Roderick Thomas as
guide. Wilson Poter, of Philadelphia,
H. W. Coming, of Cleveland, and Ottp
Cybert, of New York, are heading for
the Upper White river, and have with
them Tom Dixon, of Kluane, as guide,
and Bruce Fisher as camp boss, pack-
train foreman and general aide. Hamilton Fish, jr., and Benjamin Moore
are two other New Yorkers in search
pf health, rest and sport afield. They
have booked H. E. Porter as guide
and started out for Lake Arkel, where
mountain sheep are reported as plentiful as fleas on a yellow dog. Still
another party includes F. C. Have-
meyer and Insley Blair, of New York,
the former a son of the so-called "Sugar
King." They have Joe Lamb as guide and
will try their luck in the White river
country.

BUSINESS MEN FAVOR ARBITRATION
Saturday's meeting of the business men brought out several points in connection with the G. T. P. request for a nominal tax rate. The principal one is that
the business men almost unanimously admit that the yardage tax on the company
is away out of proportion. Some try to blame the assessment but that shirking
the issue. Certain of the aldermen who were at the conference with the company repeatedly state that Mr. Hays had no proposition yet they announce that Mr. Hays
insisted upon a $6000 tax for fifteen years. The two statements are rather contradictory. It sounds very much like a suggestion of a proposition at any rate, and
it is certainly something with which to start an arbitration. In view of the failure
of the conference to accomplish nothing but a rupture with the company it is regrettable that more of the aldermen were not present. The business men seem to be
of a more friendly attitude toward the company than the councillors who held the
conference.

Aid. Pattullo who lives at one end of Section one and Ald.Lynch who lives at the
other end, to say nothing of the city solicitor who lives away out in quite another
direction.
"Don't be stampeded" is the pleading of the aldermen which is a somewhat
different song from the battle cry on the electoral range on May 19 last.
A verbatum report of Saturday's public meeting reads like a Pattullo sandwich.
The Northern News of Athabasca Landing, which is the farthest north newspaper east of the mountains, states that on August 1st the average measurements of
grain in that district were: Wheat five feet; oats 50 inches; rye 68 inches; barley
five feet; alfalfa sown May 20, 39 inches; red clover 29 inches. This is a record for
central Alberta to be proud of. That country is the feeding ground for Prince Rupert.

Tom Dunn's Telegram Sent Within
Fifteen Minutes of Close of Citizens' Meeting on Saturday Afternoon.  Reply Anxiously Expected.
Up to the present nothing further has
transpired in reference to the G. T. P.
assessment situation. Tom Dunn, the
citizen's representative in the matter is
awaiting the reply from C. M. Hays
to the telegram sent at his request by
Superintendent Meehan to Mr. Hays.
"The telegram was on its way within
fifteen minutes after the close If the
meeting." Tom Dunn told the Optimist
today. "No reply has as yet been received, and until we have a reply it is
impossible to say what the nature of the
negogiations it is proposed to enter upon
with the G. T. P. will be.
"The terms of the telegram were
simply these: that the citizens of Prince
Rupert had met and discussed the matter
of the assessment with the mayor and
members of council, and that the citizens
desired negotiations to be opened upon
the subject."
vellous bottle to last!
Mr. Patmore was interested in the
nature of Vermuth, and Kelwassar
declared that in his opinion it was "a
rotten stuff" which nobody would ever
drink enough of to get drunk on, and
which his patrons sometime flung out
on the floor after a taste.
Regarding the colour of the stuff,
the witnesses were dubious. Some
thought it pink, others said it was brown.
All were sure it wasn't exactly the colour
of the whisky in court which Chief
McCarvell poured into a tumbler for
inspection. This case was also adjourned
along with the case against Winnie
Johnson charged with having run a
peculiar type of domicile.
Baseball Up River
A beautiful day and* a large gatherin
was the order of things at Little Canyon
last Saturday when the long talked off
championship baseball match between
the Kitsumkalum Kids and the Little
Canyon Tigers were decided. About
one o'clock p.m. the crowds commenced
to assemble and they seemed to flock
in from every dirwtion. The game was
billed to commence at 2:30 sharp but
owing to the distance some of the patrons had to come, the management
decided that 3:30 p.m. would be more
suitable. The grounds were beautifully
laid off and Mr. Geo. Little did everything in his power to cater to the wants
of everybody. The ladies stand was to
the right of the scorer's booth where they
had a magnificent view. Mr.Little was
very much in evidence in this particular
quarter where ha was voted a regular
Beau Brummel for his very much appreciated attentions. Refreshments were
served before and after the game. Everybody was in their glad rags and
seemed supremely happy. The game
ran very smoothly although very disas

anuals of the great, American game
was better ball played double's being
quite the order of the game.

Adjustment  an  Abolishment
"Suppose we take it that it is not?"
said Aid. Pattullo.
"Then it should be assessed correctly
oh a proper valuation. That is a matter
for a committee to consider and adjust"
said Mr. Westenhaver.
The Mayor���"It is not a matter of
adjustment but of abolishing the as-
sesment."
The probality of the G. T. P.'s leasing
the wateifront was   mooted.
"They won't," said M. M. Stephens.
"I happen to have taken up the matter
with them and am in a position to know-
that they won't.
C. C. Westenhaver suggested that
perhaps a few preliminary negotiations
were all Mr. Hays wanted.
Again the subject of the interview with
Mr. Hays was gone over the only fresh
point brought out being contained in a
remark of the mayor's, that Mr.
Hays had said "There are four of you
here, any one of whom can sit down and
in a few minutes write out what you want,
Are All  In The  Dark
"What sort of proposition would you
have us submit to Mr. Hays?" asked
Aid. Pattullo.
"Yes, what should we say to Mr.
D'Arcy Tate if we write him?" added
the mayor.
Mr. Law thought a proposal on that
part of the council to consider knocking off so much of the assessment for
this year at least would be sufficient
to open up negotiations. Thos Dunn said
the point was to get D'Arcy Tate here
before the party left the coast.
There followed some further discussion
on the question of whether the as-
sesment was considered equitable or
not, and who should adjust it if it were
too high. A remark by Mr. Law that
apparently the two hour's spent in discussion might have been spent to better
advantage, brought the meeting back
to the direct business in hand.
Company Might Shut Down
Aid. Smith rose and said "The real
question is the question of the waterfront assessment on the G. T. P. I
don't think it a good thing for the city
to get at logger heads with the G. T. P.
It is a thing which will do the city a
great deal of harm. Mr. Hays' party
came with the intention to put the works
in hand right away.' They left saying
they would not do this on account of the
difficulty with the city over the as-
sesment. Now I would like to point out
a thing which has hot been touched upon
yet. That is that labour conditions in
B. C. are particularly bad for railway
construction, and it is quite possible
that if the difficulty persists in Prince
Rupert the G. T. P. may withdraw all
operations at this end and build from
the other end of the line where they can
ship men in cheaper. With this in view
"he concluded" I think we should enter
into negotiations with the G. T. P."
There was some applause as Aid.
Smith sat down.
Re-open     Negotiations
Aid. Pattullo again wanted to know
what proposition the citizens wished the
council to submit.
Thos Dunn moved that the mayor
get into communication with Mr. D'Arcy
Tate before he left Vancouver, and P. I.
Palmer seconded the motion.
Aid. Barrow said that the G. T. P. as
the aggrieved party had let slip their
opportunity, and suggested that the
mayor should write to Mr. Hays confirming the council's interview with him,
but suggesting that the G. T. P. should
now offer a prosposition and appoint
some one to discuss the matter.
Mr. Benson added that sone one in
authority should be sent here, say Mr.
D'Arcy Tate.
"Are we not rather a handful of citizens to take such a step as this motion?"
put in M. M. Stephens.
"It is the first steps" said Thos Dunn
Difficulties in the Way
The mayor pointed out the difficulty
the  council  had  in  approaching   Mr.
Hays when they had already asked him
for a proposition and been refused. He
protested against having to go back to
Mr. Hays.
C. C. Westenhaver supported the
mayor in this, and said it was up to the
citizens to shape something up and take
a little of the responsibility off the mayor.
Aid. Pattullo thought that Thos.
Dunn might write to D'Arcy Tate himself and suggest that he should come up
and discuss the matter.
The mayor then reminded the meeting
that Mr. McNicoll was in the city, and
suggested that he be asked to wire Mr.
Tate to come.
Thos. Dunn���"If anyone is needed
to go to Mr. McNicoll, I will go."
Aid. Smith suggested that three representatives citizens might form a committee to negotiate with the G. T. P.
Have No Legal Powers
Aid. Lynch said that it was this
private impression regarding the interview with Mr. Hays that the G. T. P.
were well aware that the city had no
legal powers to alter the assessment and
give them the fifteen years' exemption
they wanted. He thought they wanted
to make a deal with the council to subM
mit to the people. "That is my impression only" he said "take it for what it is
worth."
Mr. Benson: "Why should a few aldermen jump to the conclusion that the
G. T. P. want fifteen years' exemption?"
Aid. Pattullo "That is exactly what
they   do   want."
It was then moved by Mr. Law and
seconded by Mr. Arnott that Thos.
Dunn be appointed a committee of one
to communicate at once with the G. T. P.
on the subject of the assessment with a
view to opening up negotiations.

Those who have property owe it to
themselves and others dependent on
them, as well as the place in which they
live, to keep properly insured,' and if
Campbellton had had resaonable insurance there would not be the privation
we see today. Merchants should be
insured for the protection of those from
whom they buy, as' well as themselves.
I remember one large firm of manufacturing clothiers used to have on their

it is a reasonable question for them to
ask, even although the buyer may be

The speeches made by Sir Wilfrid
Laurier in the course of his tour of the
North-West aayB the New York Sun,
have caused great resentment among the
supporters of the Chamberlain policy of
Imperial federation based on trade preference between Breat Britain and the
Colonies. Thus a correspondent of the
Daily Mail haa discovered a great mare's
nest. According to him there is a "conspiracy" on the part of settlers from this
country to 'Americanize" the Provinces
in which they have bought land, with a
view to destroying the efforts of "loyal
Canadians," and so on. Then as a sort
of anti-climax comes this: "Everywhere
the opinion is held that within the next
two years a treaty of reciprocity will be
concluded between the United States
and Canada."
The Dominion Premier has been perfectly open in his advocacy of better
business relations between us and the
Dominion. Addressing a number of
former Americans at Winnipeg early
this month, he advised them to take part
in local politics, in the following words:
"Yours is the greatest of all patriotic
privileges. You can do much to improve
the relations between the land of your
birth and the land of your adoption,
and you can do much to weld the bond
of union into an offensive and defensive
alliance between the British Empire
and the American Republic. The result would be a state of affairs of the
world under which not a single gun could
be fired without their joint permission.
Perhaps this is too ambitious a dream,
but there is something we can do. Our
commercial relations in the past have
not been satisfactory, and we must improve them. We have taken up our stand
on British preference, and that we will
not depart from. It is, and shall remain,
part of our fiscal policy; but I can conceive a wide field of reciprocity. That
is the goal we can attain."
As a matter of fact, it is this country,
and hot Canada, which has been shy
as regards the readjustment of legislation to suit the national trade requirements of the Republic and the Dominion.
Which simple fact makes the conspiracy theory ridiculous.
It is furthermore absurd to allege,
as the correspondent of the London Mail
does, that "Everybody here (in Canada)
realizes that the United States is striving with might and main to secure
that preference which Great Britain
persistently refuses." Canadian statesmen who can consider the question with
unprejudiced minds realize the futility
of trying to divert trade by means of a
preference, seeing that, in spite of that
given to Great Britain, the steady increase in the volume of business done
with this side of the line, under comparatively adverse conditions, has not
been checked to any appreciable extent.

MANY FOREIGN
INVESTORS
MUCH CAPITAL NOW COMING IN
FROM ABROAD
Canada Most Attractive Investment
Field of Present Times���New
Country With Energetic and Capable  Men   Guiding   Its   Destines.
In an interesting article the Monetary Times gives an analysis of the
amount of foreign capital invested in
Canada. The article is one of a series
the two first dealing with British and
American investments. British investments for the past five years amounted
to the enormous sum of $605,453,852
American investments for an indefinite period have aggregated $279,075,-
000. Foreign capital other than the
two stated investments in the Domin-
amounts to $77,889,650.
French investments more than equal
the total of money sent from all the
other countries of Europe. Many French
institutions have so long been established in Canada that in the east they
are looke : upon as Canadian inst'titions.
Naturally the most of it has'been attracted to Quebec, but of the entire
$49,250,000 the republic has sent to the
Dominion some $500,000, has been invested in British Columbia real estate.
The Pacific province is more deeply
indebted to Germany however for it is
a remarkable thing, that of the $16,500,-
000, the aggregate of German investments in Canada, the comparatively
enormous sum of $2,000,000 has been
placed in British Columbia, chiefly in
real estate.
No doubt is there, that Canada, as
an investment field is one of the most
attractive of the present times. It is
a new country, with all before it.. The
personality of most who are guiding
its destinies is marked with energy
and confidence in their country's future. This spirit is the birthright of
those whose cradles are rocked in
Canada. It is a gift to others who have
adopted Canada as foster mother. Progress has been enough in Canada to
allow capital to feel comparatively
safe here. Sufficient nation building
has been accomplished to banish grave
capital risks as exist in many other
countries. The building which remains
to be done will insure the obtaining for
capital of adequate return.

Fulton Street    ���    and Third Ave.
Yesterday being Labor Day the fine
weather was particularly welcome. A
big percentage of Prince Rupert citizens
observed the holiday. Places of business
were closed and the papers were not
published. In the morning a regular
procession of jolly picnickers went down
to the boat houses burdened with provision baskets and other festive impedimenta. The weather clerk was in
execllent humor throughout the day,
and by nightfall the picnic parties were
back again in the city with hearts as
light as their baskets now relieved of
their store of good things. Parties of
hunters who had left the city for the
hunting grounds on Friday and Saturday
returned with the darkness, and there is
much banter going in the city this
morning on the subject of bears and deer.
Everybody is emphatic on one point,
however, and that is that they had a
downright good time.

INSURANCE
90 Per Cent
Do you know that over ninety
per cent, of our whole population
over 60 years of age are dependent on others for support ? No
doubt you have never considered
the matter, but in view of this
large percentage, don't you think
you should?
For the workingman, the businessman, the professionalman,
and the capitalist, Insurance is
the only sure protection he can
get against want in old age.
The Sun Life of Canada issue
policies to suit the circumstances
of any and every class. Premiums can be paid yearly, half-
yearly or quarterly. The cost
is trivial.
Call and let us show you some
of our policies and also explain
some of the special features of
our contract. You will be surprised at the great protection you
can give those dependent on you
for a small amount of money deposited yearly, half-yearly or
quarterly.
