THE MEN WITH THE BOILERS OR
THE MEN ON THE SITE
Race on Now to Hurry up that City
Lighting Plant. Aid. Mobley Himself a First Rate Hustler, and Is
Pleased to Report Progress.
At the city council meeting last night
Aid. Mobley rose to report excellent
progress with the City Lighting Plant
He stated the fact reported in yesterday's
Optimist that the new generator had
arrived, that the rest of the plant was
now practically all at Vancouver, and
that rapid progress was being made with
the work of loading the boilers purchased from the B. C. Tie and Timber
Co. on to the scows for removal to the
city site where rapid progress was also
being made to prepare for their reception.
"There is in fact a little race on," said
Aid. Mobley with a smile, "The men on
the boiler job are racing against the
men on the site preparation work to see
who's going to be ready first. The site
is proving in every way excellent for its
purpose and the work on it is going on
splendidly. There can be no doubt
now that we shall shortly be in sight of
light."
STEAMER CHIRIQUI LOST
Nothing Heard of Twenty-seven Pas-
engera   and   the   Crew
(Special to the Optimist)
Panama, Oct. 4.���Steamer Chiriqiu, of
the Pacific Steamship company, is reported to have been lost near Buena
Ventura, after the explosion |of her
boilers. She carried twenty-seven passengers. Two steamers sent in search
have returned failing to find any trace
of the vessel or her possible survivors.
Cholera  in  Sardiania
Rome, Oct. 4.���(Special)���Cholera is
reported as having broken out in Sardiania this morning. It had been
feared for some time and many of the
wealthy residents had already left.
Will Visit West Indies
Ottawa, Oct. 4.���(Special)���The Free
Press states that Earl Grey will visit
the West Indies in the Canadian cruiser
Niobe.
DIFFICULT TASK
TO RAISE BODIES
NO NEWS REGARDING THEM UP
TO NOON TODAY
Depth of Water Is Against the Probability of Their Being Early Recovered. Heavy Garments May
Hold Them Down for Long.
Up till noon today no news had been
received regarding the search for the
bodies of the two young men, Harry
Gilroy and Alex. Allen, who were
drowned in Shawatlans Lake on Friday.
The city engineer was unable to say
whether the efforts made to bring them to
the surface had been successful or not,
but the probability is that they have
not been recovered yet.
Those who have experience of the
dreary task of dragging for bodies in
deep water know how difficult it is, and
the water at the point where the young
men lost their lives is nearly 150 feet
deep. Bodies sunk in fresh water
sometimes do not come to the surface
for a fortnight, lor they may come
up as soon as in three days. It depends
a good deal on the nature |of the bottom
of the lake and the weight of the garments worn by the drowned person.
If a body is entangled in weeds it way
not rise at all; and on a rugged and
rocky bottom a corpse may rest in such
a position that the grappling gear
cannot touch it to drag it to the surface.
REFUSE COMPROMISE
Cotton Spinners' Lockout Is Assuming Alarming Proportions
(Special to the Optimist)
Manchester, Oct. 4.���The master
spinners refused to accept the compromise offered by the mediator and
accepted by the men. Later they refused the terms of arbitration offered
by the board of trade. The cotton
industry, therefore, is likely to be
paralyzed for some time.
New  Wireless  Record
New York, Oct. 4���(Special)���A new
wireless record was made when Marconi,
now in Argentina, picked up signals
there from Glace Bay, Nova Scotia.
This is the longest distance yet recorded.
JURY INSPECT
TIMES RUINS
ELECTRIC COMPANY THREATENED WITH DYNAMITE
Federation of Labor Denounces Police for Placing Members Under
Surveillance���Gelatine Traced to
Launch and Then to Automobile.
(Special to the Optimist)
Los Angeles, Oct 4.���The jury appointed to probe into the causes of the
Times disaster inspected the ruins this
morning.
An official of the electric company
informed the police today the company
had recei ed warning letters that their
plants were to be dynamited.
The police are searching for traces of
the mysterious launch which went to
the Giant Powder works at San Jose and
got five hundered pounds of gelatine
just before the explosion occurred. They
have found that the explosive was
transhipped along the coast to an automobile. The abandoned launch, with
the empty boxes that had contained the
gelatine, were fouud on the mudfllats
near Alviso.
The Federation of Labor met in
convention last night and denounced
the action |of the police in placing under
surveillance a number of the members.
The convention continued this morning
with thirty police on guard outside the
labor temple.
San Jose, Oct. 4.���The police have
traced up the three men who, in the
mysterious launch, obtained five hundred pounds of gelatine at the Giant
Powder company's works. The cargo
was transmitted into autmoobiles, and
the police are now on the track of these,
WAS AZEFF ASSASSINATED
Notorious Russian Spy Believed to
Have Been Killed at Wiesbaden
(Special to the Optimist)
Berlin, Oct. 4.���Eugene Azeff, the
notorious Russian spy, is reported to
have been assassinated yesterday at
Wiesbaden. Since his exposure of the
Terrorists the latter have set a price
on his head and he has been wandering
all over Europe. The body found has
not been definitely identified.
BIG PULP MILLS BEING BUILT AT COUSINS INLET
Wm. Manson, M. P., has returned
after a couple of weeks' visit to the
southern portion of the Skeena district
which he represents. Among the places
visited were Bella Coola, Swanson Bay,
Namu, Kimsqult, and Rivers Inlet.
In all the settlements he visited great
progress has been made since his last
visit.
Bella Coola, on of the oldest settlements on the coast in the district, was
founded in 1894 by a party of Norwegians. They made considerable progress and now the valley is settled for
thirty miles. Mr. Manson went up
twenty-six miles and visited most of
the more important points. He had a
very successful meeting at Hazensburg,
twelve miles from Bella Coola and another in the school house on the water
front.     These   pioneers  have   devoted
ieirtlmrmclrattention toiruit growing,
dairying and poultry. There are now
three schools in operation and another
will be opened this month.
One of the chief drawbacks to this

Saw Mill in Operation Now and Two
Hundred Men at Work���Trade is

son Home From the South.
district is its lack of steamboat connection. There is no connection now
with Prince Rupert and it behoves the
business men of this town to get busy
with the transportation companies and
have a regular connection established.
The people down there are most anxious
to do business with the North and they
are an important settl >ment and growing
rapidly. At present practically all their
business is done at Vancouver which is
farther away and the trip is not so
pleasant or attractive. Prince Rupert
can have that trade for the asking.
The fishing at Namu, Kimsquit and
Rivers Inlet this year was very good
and that helped t\\e people out a whole
lot.   It put a large amount of money
into circulation and added a great deal
to the prosperity of the southern portion
of the coast.
Big Pulp Mills
At Cousins Inlet the Ocean Falls Co.
is doing big things and will in a short
time have a good sized town immediately
depending on them. They are proceeding to establish their pulp plant. A saw
mill has already been erected and lumber
is being sawed up for the construction
of all their buildings. A large store is
now doing business and the plans are
prepared for a hotel.
Before everything is running the
company expects to have expended a
million and a half in buildings and
plant. At present they are employing
two hundred men and in a short time
will have a thousand men on their pay
roll.
The company has a splendid water
supply which is being utilized for the
power for the plant. The whole camp
gives promise of very rapid development.
There is a school in operation now.

the steamer Camosun, received a wire
to the effect that the trip north of that
steamer for October 5th had also been
cancelled, and that she will not be on

gone into drydock.
HUGE  METEOR  APPEARS
Hangs Over Johannesburg and Cannot   Be   Accounted   For
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Oct. 4.���Scientists are puzzled over the presence of a large meteor
which seems to be hanging over Johannesburg. They say the phenomena is
against ull precedent and all reason. It
is half the size of the moon, apparently,
and while passing made the country
as light as day. It is estimated that the
huge meteor is only one hundred and
fifty miles from the earth.

CAMOSUN BEING REPAIRED
Her Trip This Week Has Also Been
Cancelled
Before he left on the Prince George
last night James H. Rogers, agent for
the steamer Camosun, received a wire
to the effect that the trip north of that
steamer for October 5th had also been
cancelled, and that she will not be on
the run again until the following week.
This delay is made necessary by the
alterations and renovations of the boat

HUGE  METEOR APPEARS
Hangs Over Johannesburg and Cannot   Be   Accounted   For

to the prosperity of the southern portion
of the coast.
Big Pulp Mills
At Cousins Inlet the Ocean Falls Co.
is doing big things and will in a short
time have a good sized town immediately
depending on them. They are proceeding to establish their pulp plant. A saw
mill has already been erected and lumber
is being sawed up for the construction
of all their buildings. A large store is
now doing business and the plans are
prepared for a hotel.
Before everything is running the
company expects to have expended a
million and a half in buildings and
plant. At present they are employing
two hundred men and in a short time
will have a thousand men on their pay
roll.
The company has a splendid water
supply which is being utilized for the
power for the plant.   The whole camp.
gives promise of very rapid development.
There is a school in operation now. '
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Oct. 4.���Scientists are puzzled over the presence of a large meteor
which seems to be hanging over Johannesburg. They say the phenomena is
against all precedent and all reason. It
is half the size of the moon, apparently,
and while passing made the country
as light as day. It is estimated that the
huge meteor is only one hundred and
fifty miles from the earth.

To   Swedish   Family   Who   Arrived
Here in Sore Diatreas     ,
The city Health Officer, Dr. J. O,
Reddie, reported last night to the city
council regarding the recent matter of
medical attention, nursing and relief
granted by the city at the instance of the
mayor in the urgent case of sickness and

The case was one of extreme urgency.
Th<; family were suffering from acute
dysentery, and one child died of the
trouble. They were destitute of means
of support but the father got work in
Prince Rupert. The Mayor gave the
health officer practically a free hand in
the matter and the expenses incurred
were for nursing and relief $30, and for
medical attention by Dr. McNeil $41.
The Mayor explained to the council the
extreme urgency of this case to prevent
the trouble from spreading, and the

Relief Committee.

BYLAWS FOR
MAGISTRATE
CITY CLERK'S COPIES ARE ONLY
ONES AVAILABLE
Request of Magistrate Carss Granted
but Difficulty Is to Find Time to
Prepare Copies of the City Bylaws.
G.T.P. To Be Asked for City Map.
Aid. Hilditch asked at last night's
city council meeting whether anything
had yet been done towards granting the
request of magistrate Carss for a copy
of the city bylaw affecting his department as police magistrate.
"Apparently," said Aid. Hilditch,
"the Magistrate cannot work under the
present moral bylaw, and is pursuing
his duties according to the common
criminal code. He is without copies of
the city bylaws, of the city map including
the harbor area, and of the book on
criminal law by Crankshaw."
The Mayor said the city map would
have to be obtained from the G. T. P.
City Clerk Woods said that to prepare copies of th. bylaws would take
some time. The only copies available
at present were his own which he could
on no account allow out of his possession
unless ordered to do so. The book the
magistrate wanted had to be ordered
from Toronto, and had not yet arrived.
Aid. Hilditch thought that if the city
stenographers were set to make copies
of these bylaws several copies should be
struck off at a time. Perhaps the
stenographers could do aome of them in
their spare time.
Aid. Mobley did not see the difficulty
in regard to the moral bylaw very
clearly He was convinced that the
moral bylaw read like any other bylaw.
If a man were fined and could not pay
his fine, he was held in charge until
he found some way of liquidating the
debt or served his sentence.
���fhe city clerk read over the bylaw
in question (No. 14), and said that he
would do his best to have copies made for
the magistrate.
GETTING WHIP HAND
Justice Grantham Thinks Americans
Are Besting Canadians
London, Oct. 1.���Justice William
Grantham, has returned from his trip
to Canada, and is almost entirely recovered from the effects of his moose
hunting accident. He fears that at
the present time the Americans are
getting the whip hand in Canada. The
Canadians, he declares, are intensely
loyal, but that economic reasons might
outweigh this sentiment.
Britisher Is Ejected
Winnipeg, Oct. 1.���A good deal of
curiosity is being expressed as to the
alleged reasons which induced the American immigration officers to order T. L.
Humberstone, a prominent English educationist, from the St. Paul train last
night. He was bound to Chicago and
had a return ticket. He was highly
indignant and intends to take the
matter higher.
No Session Until Next Year
Ottawa, Oct. 1.���Owing to Hon. W.
S. Fielding's illness and the lack of
preparation on the part of the government, it is considered likely that Parliament will not be summoned until

WOMAN SAVED TWICE
Happened to Be Same Sailor Though

Juneau, Oct. 1.���Mrs. Esther Lang,'
mother of the cashier of the Valdez
Bank, is dead in Valdez at the age
of 75. Mrs. Lang figured in two Alaska
steamship wrecks and in both instances
was rescued by the same man. When
the Oregon went on the rocks to the
westward she was aboard and was
picked out of the water by a member of
the crew and taken ashore.
At the time the Ohio went down in
Southeastern Alaska, Mrs. Lang was
on her, bound for Valdez. Again she
was picked up and taken ashore., by a
sailor. A lantern happened to be held
close to the face of her rescuer and Mrs.
Lang exclaimed: "I feel sure I have seen
you before." "Yes," answered the
sailor, "I saved you in the wreck of the
Oregon."

Books to Keep Him Busy
More work for City Clerk Woods!
The full set of the city's official books
is now in hand from the printers. A
letter announcing their consignment by
the printers was read by the city clerk
at last night's council, and Mr. Woods
stated that the books had arrived and he
had acknowledged their receipt. Judging from the detailed description he
read of them they are systematic and no
doubt labor saving, but there seems to
be a power of work in them too.
We are told that we may soon be
able to talk to Europe by telephone.
Must be a scheme on the part of some
of the European monarchs who want
to talk back to Teddy at a safe distance.���Salt Lake Tribune.

A GOOD SUGGESTION
The suggestion made yesterday by the Optimist of the way in which to overcome the present financial difficulty in which the city council find themselves, has
met with pretty general commendation. It is looked upon as the best possible
solution of the problem of obtaining immediate credit for the city. The city has
now proceeded so far that a liberal credit is necessary and unfortunately the months
and efforts expended in arranging it have been wasted. Some one must now step
into the breach and no one can do it with better grace and quicker results than the
Provincial Government. At the present time Aid. Smith is returning from a trip
to Edmonton and if he were asked to interview the members of the cabinet in
Victoria he would probably accomplish something of real value to the city. The
Provincial Government has had slight differences with the city but on the whole
they have shown a disposition to treat Prince Rupert liberally and nurse it during
the time of development.
With the Government holding great property interests here the desire to give
the city progress and prosperity is mutual and Premier McBride is a bold enough
politician to come to the rescue with legislation guaranteeing the bonds.
Prince Rupert's progress as portrayed in the Optimist special has not only
interested people all over America but has attracted the notice of Great Britian
and her investors. Every mail is bringing the Optimist enquiries and requests
for the special from abroad and the good that it is doing can be.judged from such
articles as the following which is taken from the London Mail of Septmeber 17:
"Sir Wilfrid Laurier's visit to Prince Rupert was a great success. He had a
Right Royal Reception in the new city, which was filled with merry crowds, bright
sunshine, music, and gay bunting. Sir Wilfrid himself was at his best, and that is
saying much. The Prince Rupert Optimist celebrated the occasion by bringing
out a 'progress and opportunities edition' of the paper. This special edition is
excellently illustrated, well written, and carefully compiled, and ought to have a
large distribution in Great Britain. It is free from exaggeration, and is in every
way creditable to Prince Rupert and the country tributary to it, and to the Optimist.
If every Grand Trunk shareholder would read this special edition there would be
a wider knowledge of the great value of the new country on the Pacific that the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway is opening up."

CONTRACTOR IS
QUITE READY
TO TRANSFER  HIS OPERATIONS
TO SUIT CITY
S. H. Watson Is Willing to Oblige if
Compensated for Work Done. Good
Progress Being Made With Hia
Present Contract.
If the city is going to request S. H.
Watson & Co. to transfer their grading
operations to the more congested district on Third avenue according to Aid.
Mclntyre's suggestion at last night's
city council in connection with the
financial difficulty, there isn't a great
deal of time to spare.
Work on the Second avenue grading
contract under S. H. Watson's supervision at present is going strong. The
brothers Watson are always on the spot
and their gang of laborers get through
the work remarkably speedily.
Some very successful blasting is being
done on this contract. Today a shot of
four cases of dynamite in 16-foot- drill
holes displaced over 500 yards of rock
without flinging a stone beyond grade
line. The rock was well broken up too,
and the mass can be deared quickly
carrying the cut many feet into the
humps that the contractors are removing.
Asked what he thought of Aid. Mclntyre's idea that the city should transfer the work farther into the congested
district Mr. Watson said that it was all
one to him provided the compensation
question was settled to the mutual
satisfaction of the city and himself.
"But," he added, "at the rate we are
progressing here, we shall be soon
finished and ready for a new contract
farther in anyway. It wouldn't cost
us very much trouble, however, to
transfer our work to the location suggested by Aid. Mclntyre last night."

The F. T. Bowness Brokerage Company
It was Aid. Mclntyre who introduced
the momentous question |of the city of
Prince Rupert and the attitude towards
it of the Bank of Montreal, at last
night's city council meeting.
"I don't think it will cause the city
serious troublr," he said, "or that the
city will suffer at all over this anomalous
state of affairs just at present. Yet, we
have entered into certain contracts, and
while the bank says that it will see us
through part of these contracts we have
to remember that these works are undertaken under local improvement conditions, and that therefore all thc
various contracts are really supposed to
be done about the same time. Now we
have given contracts for certain portions
of the works and until the bank's attitude is favorable we cannot touch-other
portion's. But according to local improvement bylaw no part of the work
is to be done at the expense of any other
part and still the fact stares us in the
face that Second avenue is being graded
while the other avenues are not. By
continuing the work on .Second -avenue
we   are   infringing   this m bylaw.     The

Aid. Mclntyre said that it was only
in the event of there being any considerable delay that he advocated the
olcing down of the work already begun.
He agreed with the Mayor that the
delay would probably be only a short
one. He suggested that the portion of
Second avenue which was being graded
by S. H. Watson & Co,, was likely to be
most useful to the G: T. P. and wondered whether Aid. Lynch had this in
view when he got through this contract
early, so as to help on the city's negotiations with the G. T. P. If that
were so Aid. Lynch should get the credit
o r all the Irish that was in him.
Aid. Barrow agreed with Aid. Mclntyre since the idea was only to shut
down works in the event of the delay
being prolonged.
Aid. Mobley concluded the discussion
by saying that if the delay proved a
long one he would certainly think it
advisable that S. H. Watson should be
put on work farther in the city, but
just at present he thought they should
wait a lit le and see how matters were
to run.
The general opinion was in agreement with this.
Witnesses   Await   Subpoenas
The subpoenas have not arrived yet
for the witnesses in the trial at Vancouver of Alphonse Reicher who was
taken there in custody to answer the
charge against him of shooting and

alternatives before us are either to close
down the work on Second avenue, or to
make this avenue a separate local improvement district, that is, let this
district pay for its own improvements
if the property owners there agree to
have them carried out.
"Another feature is this: that one
part of Second avenue only is in immediate need of grading���that is the
part from McBride street to Eighth
street. The other portion will not be
of immediate use to the city for some
time to come. In the congested district
the 16-foot plankway is really too
narrow for the traffic upon it, and
collisions between wagons are likely to
occur. I would suggest that the work
should stop where it is going on apparently- needlessly on Second avenue
at present, that we should compensate
the contractor for what he has already
done and put him on to the work on
Third avenue where grading is more
urgen ly required. Of course, the question comes up that this is a matter of
contract which we cannot break, but
the matter is one of urgency. The Bank
of Montreal has practically broken
contract with our finance minister. If
the contractor is a reasonable man he
will, considering the circumstances, agree
to release us from the contract provided his expenses for the work already
done be paid."
The Mayor said that he thought it
was only a matter of a very short time
before the Bank of Montreal would let
the city have the money promised, but
failing the Bank of Montreal he thought
the city would have no difficulty in
getting the necessary funds lrom other
sources. In fact, from advices to hand
that very day he was certain of this. "I
am not in the least alarmed regarding
the outlook," said Mayor Stork.
Aid. Barrow pointed out that since
Se ond avenue had been started in
advance of other avenues because it
was more easily got ready for contracts,
this in itself was just as contrary to the
local improvement bylaw as the condition shown up by Aid, Mclnytre.
Aid. Hilditch said that Aid. Mclntyre
had given the keynote of the principal
trouble the city had got to face at the
pres.nt time, that was the attitude
of the property owners on First and Third
avenues. Certainly it did not look fair
that work should progress in the less
busy portion of the city while the congested portion was let alone. If the
money business were to hold the works
up for any length of time he would be
in favor of shutting doavn the work
which seemed not so urgently needed.

At the city council meeting la t night
Aid. Barrow referred in terms of the
highest appreciation and deepest regret
to the fact that the first fatal accident
to members of the city staff had occurred
on Friday on Shawatlans Lake. Both
the young men drowned had met their
death while in the execution of their
duties. Without going through the
form of giving notice, he moved that
the condolences of the council be conveyed to the friends of the two young
men.
'Both of them have worked with
me," he said. "I iknlw them well, and
they were a splendid couple of young
fellows."
Aid. Mobley seconded the motion
remarking that he had not been personally acquainted with the young men
but he had known of their fine character,
and knew how well they were liked..
The Mayor referred in terms of great
appreciation to the young men, and with
a sense of the loss the city felt owing to
their untimely death.
"I knew them both," he said. "They
were fine young fellows, and I feel that
this is a most commendable motion.
The city clerk will be instructed to
record it in the minutes, and to forward
copies of it to the relatives and friends
of the two young men whose lives were
so unfortunately lost."
The motion was carried unanimously.
The city clerk then read the report
of the city engineer and A. Agnew the
engineer in charge of the Woodworth
Lakes water supply scheme, a report
concluded in the simplest possible terms
and giving the facts of the accident so
already well known in the city. Without
one word in the report to draw attention
to the fact it is very plain that the
engineer in charge risked his own life
again and again in the splendid efforts
he made to save youhg Allen's life.
Gilroy was a good swimmer but took
charms.
Aid. Hilditch after hearing the report
asked if the best and safest canoes
possible were provided for the use of
those working for the city on the lakes;
and the Mayor explained that this was
the case. Aid. Mobley added a word
describing the two canoes on the lake,
both of which he had travelled in.
They were good canoes, and all the
young men, especially Agnew, were
first rate canoeists. It was evident that
an unusually large wave had swamped
the cr.noe in this case. It had been
skilfully handled and every effort had
been made to prevent loss of life. There
was also a boat on the lake but it was
heavier and less convenient for the work
than the canoes. He was certainly in
favor of sparing nothing to render the
city's work on the lake safe and convenient to accomplish.

is also probable that the date of Thanksgiving will be arranged one year in advance, instead of leaving it until a few

(Special to the Optimist)
Augusta, Oct. 3. ���The negro employees
on a circus train started rioting yesterday
and two white railway employees who
tried to quell the disturbance were shot
dead and their bodies tossed from the
train.

The circus hands were paid off on
Saturday .and were all gambling and
drinking. Wholesale arrests of the
negroes has been made.
No evil dooms us hopelessly except
the evil we love and desire to keep in,
and make no effort to escape from.���
