FAKE CONFESSION OF CRIPPEN
Editor of London Chronicle
Sued for Contempt.
Published an Alleged Confession
When None Existed.���Both Editor
And Publisher Placed in the Dock
Charged With Contempt of Court.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, August 19.���-The Daily Chronicle has been sued for contempt of
court in haying published an alleged
confession, of Dr. Crippen that he had
murdered his wife when no such confession existed. The charge is a criminal
one and both the editor and the publisher
were placed in the dock this morning.
The hearing was merely preliminary
to set the date for the trial, both defendants pleading not guilty.
The case will undoubtedly cause a
great sensation, as the alleged confession was published before Crippen
pleaded guilty to the charge when
he was arraigned at Quebec, and furthermore he has made no confession in the
ordinary sense. The confession published by the Chronicle, however, went
into details of the crime, and even the
motives which led to its commission.
The defence, it is said, will be that the
newspaper was itself deceived and defrauded, having received the news of
tbe confession from one whom they
had hitherto regarded as wo.chy of
being relied upon.
It is learned here that the necessary
proceedings for the transfer of Dr.
Crippen and Miss Leneve to British
custody will not be completed much-
before the end of the month. Special
officers from Scotland Yard and two
matrons have been sent to Quebec to
take charge of them during the voyage
from Quebec to London.

Thursday last, British time, the voyage
thus occupying Ave days and twenty
hours approximately.
From land to land the trip occupied
three days fourteen and a half hours.
But for fog, the steamer could have

Montreal at 10.30 to-night.

|THEN A YOUNGSTER IN BATTLE-

raa the Only French Boy There,

A Good Fight Resulted.
Lasburn, Sask., Aug. 8.���The Premier and his party devoted themselves
lesterday not to politics nor to rest-
V' after the shock of Friday night's
preek, but to talking to three hundred
Sunday school children in the town of
Battleford, which is the original seat
If the Government of the North-West
Territories. Many of the little red
win children present were descen-
jaVwH of Indians who took part in the
ebellion of 1886.
The  meeting  was  in  charge  of  a
Presbyterian, Rev. Mr. Little.
Hon.   George   Graham   assured   the
'taring  little  people   that  there   were
feally honest politicians, and that Laurier was one of them. Then the Premier
|came and gently exhorted the youngsters
always to tell the truth and to fight fair.

ALL RLADY FOR SIR WILFRID
Prince George Due to Arrive at Two O'Clock-
ception  Committee Will Head Flotilla
on Steamer Kestrel.
-��e-
The city is, rapidly assuming gala
attire and tomorrow all the citizens will
have reason to feel proud of its appearance. The effects Mr. Babcock has
produced with the trees is wonderful.
It not only lends to the city a neat and
clean newness of appearance but it
hides many unsightly spots. Not so
very many, however, as the cleaning
up seems to have been pretty general.
The decoration of the stores is only just
beginning and one can only form a
general opinion of this part of the decoration tomorrow, when it is completed.
The arches are coming out in great
shape and the first mentioned must in
justice be that at the city hall, erected
by the Indians without any city subsidy
or white man's help either in design,
labor or cash. The French arch at the
junction of Second Avenue and Eighth
Street is going to be very pretty, and
the one on Sixth is approaching completion. Circling this is the legend:
"We Welcome Canada's Greatest Son
to Canada's Newest City."
Mayor Stork, as chairman of the
reception committee, states that at
12.30 tomorrow the flotilla will leave to
meet the Prince George at the entrance
to the harbor. The government steamer
Kestrel will be used by the reception
committee and their ladies, and the
Prince Albert will also carry a large
party. All the other craft in the harbor
will form into line, the Kestrel leading
with a band of music.
The Prince George is expected to
arrive here at two o'clock but as soon
as it arrives in Milbank Sound a wireless
will be sent to Mr. McMaster advising
him of the time the vessel will arrive
here.
There will be an Informal reception
at the wharf when the Prince George
arrives after which the party wil be
taken up to the government building
where the presentation of addresses will
take place. There are four addresses,
the one from the city, the one from the
French-Canadians, one from the Daughters of the Empire and one from the
Indians. To these addresses Sir Wilfrid
is expected to make a formal reply from
a temporary balcony now being erected
for the purpose.
W. C. C. Mehan, superintendent of
the railway, will wait upon the premier
and tender the use of his private car for
a trip along the new railway. There
will be scarcely time for Sir Wilfrid to
take advantage of this tomorrow afternoon, and the only time available would
be Monday morning.
The banquet takes place at the Prince
Rupert Inn, for which very elaborate
menus are being prepared which will be
cherished as mementoes of the occasion.
Sunday morning the Earl Grey Rifles
will parade and attend service at the
Church of England.
Monday evening there will be a public
reception at the Empress theatre, under
the auspices of the Prince Rupert
Liberal association, with Mayor Stork,
president of the association, in the chair.
and I tell you, boys, it was a very good
fight. I know I was very sore after
it. But to-day, that boy lives in Winnipeg,
and every time I pass through we see
one another. The children were delighted.
Denies    the    Rumors
New York, Aug.,15.���"You can say
for me that there is absolutely no
foundation to the frequent reports of a
forthcoming marriage of my daughter
to the Duke de Abruzzi," declared
Senator Stephen B. Elkins to-day. "I
consider these reports amusing. They
are nothing more than foolish rumors.
I am glad to deny them emphatically."
RICH GALENA
IS LOCATED
WONDERFUL  VEIN   ON   ROCHER
DE   BOULE   MOUNTAIN
Ledge of Ore From Three to Eight
Feet in Width.���Seven to Eight
Miles South of Hazelton But
Near Railway.
Quite a wave of excitement was
created Buys the Omineca Herald when
W. S. Sargent returned to town from
the hills with news of finding a vein of
galena ore on Rocher de Boule mountains
seven or eight miles south of town and
three or four miles from railway line.
He said.the ledge is from three to eight
feet wide and appears for a thousand
feet in length und that pieces of ore
similar to the samples brought to town
can be broken off ut uny point. He and
his partners have located a group of
seven claims in a formation of quartsite
und granite, cut by porphyry dikes.
As soon as Sargent told of his find several
prospectors left for the scene and that
part of the range will be thoroughly
looked over in the next few weeks,
Frank Brown, returning Friday evening from the scene of the new strike,
says it is one of the biggest things
in the way of a raw prospect that he
has ever seen. The vein filling has been
worn away and the walls left standing,
granite on one side and quartzite on
the other. He traversed the ledge for
a thousand feet and for the entire distance, where the ore was not covered
by debris, good galena could be broken
off at any point. Brown considers the
indications favorable for more discoveries
and looks to see u camp of importance
opened up in that vicinity, providing
always that the silver values are as
good as the general average.

WHO'S WHO IN CANADA
Through the courtesy of Fred Cook,
Ottawa correspondent of the London
Times, the Optimist is in receipt of a
copy of "The Canadian Who's Who."
published by the great journal. The
Times was exceedingly fortunate in
securing the services of Mr. Cook as
editor of the work. Although his name
is not found in its pages he is known
throughout the Dominion and probably
is acquainted or knows of every Canadian
of prominence for a generation or two.
He was twice Mayor Cook of Ottawa
and for many years up to the present
has occupied a seat in the press gallery
at the house of commons.
But even with such editorial excellence at its head the collection of such
cyclopoedic information in a new country
with no such previous records for reference, must have been a work of
extreme difficulty in the first place,
and in the second the exercise of nice
judgment in discriminating who was
entitled to be a who is such a publication.
Many of such directories of celebrities have been attempted, and many
if not all on this continent have been
worse then worseless in that they are
misleading. The publishers started at
the wrong end. Instead of attempting
the publication of a work of substantial
value as a book of reference for all,
they tried to make it a book of profit
for the publishers only. The representatives of one of such enterprises is in
Prince Rupert today. He called upon
a business man, writes out the biography and at the close of the interview
mentions what it will cost for the biography to appear in the book.
The London Times, on the contraryj
went to a very large expense in securing
the data for'The Canadian Who's
Who." and published it without asking
or receiving any monetary consideration from those whose names find a place
in it. The editor does say in his foreward
that perchance the name of some prominent Canadian has been omitted, but
this might happen because those gentlemen failed to answer the circulars sent
to them. This independent impartiabil-
ity makes the work of value. It sets
a hallmark, so to speak, upon the twenty-
five hundred or so of people whose
graphies are given in the book, and no
Canadian reference library is complete
without it.
COMING   ON   OPERATOR
Party   of   Engineers   Making   Trip
From Edmonton
TWO   MORE  ARCHES
Vernor W. Smith received a telegram
from Mr. Stewart, of Foley,' Welch &
Stewart, that the engineer party would
reach Hazelton last night and asking
that a boat be there to meet them. The
Operator was due there yesterday and
left at seven o'clock last night with the
party for Kitselas.
The party was met at Hazelton by
G. C. Van Arsdol and Collingwood
Schrieber, chief engineer of the Dominion
government.
Whether they will leave the boat at
Kitselas and take to the line is not
known here. In either case they will
be here on or before Saturday.
HAZELTON  DOING   WELL
People Are Looking for Busy Winter
When Prospectors Return
J. E. Roerig returned from Hazelton
yesterday and is very optimistic over
the progress being made up the river.
He states that business has been good
up there and that all the people are
well satisfied. They are looking for a
brisk time this coming winter when the
several hundred prospectors and land
stakers now on the hills will return to
town for a few months. The merchants
have been buying heavily in anticipation of the rush. Their orders have been
much larger than ever before. Speaking
of the country Mr. Roerig said that it
is looking fine. The garden stuff is now
at its best and the people are cultivating
everything. He looks for a big town
in that vicinity with a large population
on   the   farm   lands.
Died   For   Five   Dollars
Bisbee, Ariz., Aug., 17.���Victor Anderson, a miner, aged 30, won $5 last

London, August 17.���Robert Lorraine,

the Irish Sea. a distance of more than
fifty miles, from Blackpool. England,
to Landudno, on the coast of North
Wales. He accomplished the feat without a hitch.

Two more arches are going up, one
on Second avenue and Eighth street
and one opposite the City Hall. Both
are independent enterprises born of the
civic pride the visit of Sir Wilfrid has
awakened. The City Hall is being erected by the Skeena River Indian fishermen,
and is a substantial structure with
stately lines. This is to be painted and
not hidden in evergreens. The other is
the work of the French-Canadians and
is to be comewhat elaborate in decoartion
mottoes, portraits and so forth. With
three arches where only one was planned
one may expect the citizens to be stimulated to fresh energy in the decoration
of their buildings.

part of his flight from Paris today, but
an accident to his engines prevented.
He got as far on the way as Upchurch.

In illustration of his exhortation he

ALL READY FOR 5IR WILFRID
Prince George Dae to Arrive at Two O'Clock-
ception  Committee Will Head Flotilla
on Steamer Kestrel.
--.Re-
The city is. rapidly assuming gala
attire and tomorrow all the citizens will
have reason to feel proud of its appearance. The effects Mr. Babcock has
produced with the trees is wonderful.
It not only lends to the city a neat and
clean newness of appearance but it
hides many unsightly spots. Not so
very many, however, as the cleaning
up seems to have been pretty general.
The decoration of the stores is only just
beginning and one can only form a
general opinion of this part of the decoration tomorrow, when it is completed.
The arches are coming out in great
shape and the first mentioned must in
justice be that at the city hall, erected
by the Indians without any city subsidy
or white man's help either in design,
labor or cash. The French arch at the
junction of Second Avenue and Eighth
Street is going to be very pretty, and
the one on Sixth is approaching completion. Circling this is the legend:
"We Welcome Canada's Greatest Son
to Canada's Newest City."
Mayor Stork, as chairman of the
reception committee, states that at
12.30 tomorrow the flotilla will leave to
meet the Prince George at the entrance
to the harbor. The government steamer
Kestrel will be used by the reception
committee and their ladies, and the
Prince Albert will also carry a large
party. All the other craft in the harbor
will form into line, the Kestrel leading
with a band of music.
The Prince George is expected to
arrive here at two o'clock but as soon
as it arrives in Milbank Sound a wireless
will be sent to Mr. McMaster advising
him of the time the vessel will arrive
here.
There will be an informal reception
at the wharf when the Prince George
arrives after which the party wil be
taken up to the government building
where the presentation of addresses will
take place. There are four addresses,
the one from the city, the one from the
French-Canadians, one from the Daughters of the Empire and one from the
Indians. To these addresses Sir Wilfrid
is expected to make a formal reply from
a temporary balcony now being erected
for the purpose.
W. C. C. Mehan, superintendent of
the railway, will wait upon the premier
and tender the use of his private car for
a trip along the new railway. There
will be scarcely time for Sir Wilfrid to
take advantage of this tomorrow afternoon, and the only time available would
be Monday morning.
The banquet takes place at the Prince
Rupert Inn, for which very elaborate
menus are being prepared which will be
cherished as mementoes of the occasion.
Sunday morning the Earl Grey Rifles
will parade and attend service at the
Church of England.
Monday evening there will be a public
reception at the Empress theatre, under
the auspices of the Prince Rupert
Liberal association, with Mayor Stork,
president of the association, in the chair.
and I tell you, boys, it was a very good
fight. I know I was very sore after
it. But to-day, that boy lives in Winnipeg,
and every time I pass through we see
one another. The children were delighted.
Denies    the    Rumors
New York, Aug.,15.���"You can say
for me that there is absolutely no
foundation to the frequent reports of a
forthcoming marriage of my daughter
to the Duke de Abruzzi," declared
Senator Stephen B. Elkins to-day. "I
consider these reports amusing. They
are nothing more than foolish rumors.
I am glad to deny them emphatically."
RICH GALENA
IS LOCATED
WONDERFUL  VEIN   ON   ROCHER
DE   BOULE   MOUNTAIN
Ledge of Ore From Three to Eight
Feet in Width.���Seven to Eight
Miles South of Hazelton But
Near Railway.
Quite a wave of excitement was
created says the Omineca Herald when
W. S. Sargent returned to town from
the hills with news of finding a vein of
galena ore on Rocher de Boule mountains
seven or eight miles south of town and
three or four miles from railway line.
He said.the ledge iB from three to eight
feet wide and appears for a thousand
feet in length and that pieces of ore
similar to the samples brought to town
can be broken off at any point. He and
his partners have located a group of
seven claims in a formation of quartzite
and granite, cut by porphyry dikes.
As soon as Sargent told of his find several
prospectors left for the scene and that
part of the range will be thoroughly
looked over in the next few weeks.
Frank Brown, returning Friday evening from the scene of the new strike,
says it is one of the biggest things
in the way of a raw prospect that he
has ever seen. The vein filling has been
worn away and the walls left standing,
granite on one side and quartzite on
the other. He traversed the ledge for
a thousand feet and for the entire distance, where the ore was not covered
by debris, good galena could be broken
off at any point. Brown considers the
indications favorable for more discoveries
and looks to see a camp of importance
opened up in that vicinity, providing
always that the silver values are as
good as the general average.

Surveyor* Working on Railway to the

Mine to Reopen Soon.
The capital of Queen Charlotte Islands
has been moved from Jedway to Queen
Charlotte City and Gold Commissioner
E. M. Sandilands, who went south on
the Prince George, will make his headquarters in the new capital when he
returns. Tha Steamer Prince Albert
after leaving Prince Rupert will call
at Queen Charlotte City and then go
down the coast and on her return will
call again at the City, thus making a
double service.
Survey   Railway
A survey gang is at work on the proposed railway from Queen Charlotte
City to the coal fields, a distance of
about twelve miles. The charter for
this road was granted some time ago
and the object is to bring down all the
coal to the water front by rail. At the
same time the government is having
the river cleaned out so that boats can
get up the Yakoun River to the coal
fields. There will be an interesting race
to acquire the coal cargoes.
Mine    to    Reopen
The Ikeda copper mine will, it is
understood be opened up again in a
short time. The new syndicate controlling the mine has had diamond drills
at work and samples of ore sent south
to the assayers. The results of the assays
have been satisfactory and work will
be proceeded with at once. It is stated
that there are $250,000 worth of ore in
sight at the present time, and further
developments will bring forth more ore
and still larger blocks of its.
REPORT   VEkY    TAME

Of   Big   Show
(Special to the Optimist)
New Westminster, 18.���Contrary to
expectation the presentation of the last
installment of the expert aud tor's report
was very tame. No serious charges were
made and the immense crowd that had
gathered in the city hall and about the
building was'disappointed. The aldermen
listened to the report in dead silence and
had little to say afterward. It is believed,
however, that a number of graft charges
will be prosecuted.

Spokane August, 14.���With her hands
calloused and scorched from working
over a cook stove in a lumber camp,
Lady Sholto Douglas was sentenced
for vagrancy in the Police Court here
yesterday. She was arrested in a police
raid on a cheap lodging house, her
companion, William Martin, being
charged with disorderly conduct. Lady
Douglas fought with the officers and
scratched the face of Police Captain
Haynes. She was sent to jail for thirty
days. "I want to go back to my husband,''
she said in jail. "I am not a bad woman
and I can return to my life I formerly
lived.

THE POSTAL SERVICE
To-morrow the city will have certain visitors with whom it is desirable to have
some business chats. It is a long way from here to Ottawa and the Dominion
representatives sometime overlook our far away appeals. One of the most important items for discussion is the mail service. We have been long suffering in
this respect and now is the time when there should be a thorough understanding
of conditions. In Prince Rupert last night there were received 90 sacks of mail
the stored-up product of several days' collection in Vancouver. Although the
steamer Prince Rupert sailed on Monday she was refused mail, even after offering
to bring it gratis.
The inspector said he had no instructions. What is an inspector for if not to
take advantage of every opportunity to forward mail to the outlying districts?
If an inspector has to tie up to Ottawa's apron strings it is time someone cut him
loose. If the local post-master bound himself in the same red-tape the service to
the smaller towns in this district would be entirely cut off. Fortunately he has some
initiative even if the Postal Department has not.
The Skeena River and Hazelton service is probably the worst managed in this
district now. The department promised a service on the Inlander but they come
through with it so slowly that navigation will be closed before it is established.
The post-office, the armory, the floating dry dock, the quarantine station,
the Fish Co subsidy, and some other things will doubtless be talked about considerably by the visitors but at the present time they can do more with less effort
in improving the mail service, than by all the gilded promises of tho future.

TO FIGHT FOR RATES
Alberta   and   British   Columbia   to

Vancouver, August 19.���At a banquet of the United Alberta Farmers

Alberta and British Columbia should
unite in putting up a big fight against
thtralleged discriminatory rates between
the  prairie  province   and   Vancouver.

One of the events in which great interest is taken is the contest between
the philanthropist and the sourdough.
Both men are to go into training directly
after the banquet tomorrow night,
Jack Beatty taking the sourdough in

power available within a radius of seventy
miles of the city that is capable of
development at a commercial value.
This water power will give 20,000
electrical horse power, and that will
last only a few years. They intend to
expend $1,000,000 on a dam and to develop this power within the next couple
of years. They will reserve all this
for the use of Prince Rupert, either its
municipal or commercial enterprises
It is proposed that the city should take
at the beginning 3000 horse power at a
price to be ageed upon delivered on
the boundary. They will give the city
a sliding scale so that the more power
used the lower will be the price. The
price established at first will be the
maximum and the minimum depends
upon the requirements.
Electric Railway
The Tsimpsean Light and Power
company have planned to instal and
operate the street railway. They are
prepared to advance with the city, and
���tart the cars running as soon as there is
��� population large enough to require it.
The company is prepared to lay its rails
at the same time as the city builds the
permanent streets, a scheme which will
save tearing up the streets after they
are built. If the street improvements
do not advance as rapidly as the population increases the company will lay ite
rails and operate its cars ahead of ths
streets and lay the rails permanently
as the streets advance. It is proposed
that the company submit a plan to the
council to pay the city a special tax of
$15 or $20 per car operated, and 3 per
cent per annum of the gross earnings
up to $100,000. From that amount to
$300,000 they will pay 4 per cent to
the city and over $300,000 they will pay
6 per" cent. This will be in lieu of the
usual taxes charged street railway
companies and which cause endless
troubles and bad feelings. It will settle
the question for all time to come. A
better feeling will develop between the
company and the city as the people
will realize that as the street railway
system develops the income of the city
will increase. This over is considered
particularly generous by the company,
and especially as the city will not have
to bear any of the burden of installation
or operation as in the case of municipal
ownership.
Will Change the Name
The Tsimpsean Light and Power Co.
has decided to adopt a new name which
will be announced later. It will, however, contain the name of the city so
that the city will derive the benefit
of the advertising resulting from the
operations of the company.
NEW BOAT FOR STICKINE
May  Soon  See  Another  Stampede
Up  That  Turbulent   River
There has just been launched at
Seattle a tunnelboat for William J. McNeill, of Wrangell, for service on the
Stickine river, northern British Columbia. The boat has been named the
"Telegraph," and it will ply between
Wrangell, in Aaska, and Telegraph,
B. C, on the Stickine river.
The craft is one of the few tunnel-
boatsjever to be built on this coast and
has been specially designed to navigate
in shallow streams. By an ingenious
boxlike contrivance enough water is
provided to allow for propulsion where the
ordinary propeller would be unable to
It will be operated on the Stickine
river, between Wrangell and Telegraph
and will carry passengers, mails and
B-neral freight. Her design will especially
fit her for navigating the shallow reaches
of the Stickine river.
TRIPLE MURDER
TO HONOR GOD
STARTLING OCCURRENCE ON A
SANTA  ROSA  RANCH
Tragedy That Calls Public Attention
to The Shinto Club and Caused a
Great Sensation Among Oakland
Social Leaders.
San Francisco, Aug., 16.���That the
killing of Enock Kendall, his wife, and
their son at their lonely ranch just
north of Santa Rosa, was a gruesome
human sacrifice to the Japanese god
Shinto offered by Manjiro Yamagachi,
a Japanese boy who lived on the ranch,
was the startling declaration made today by Mrs. Gertrude Boyle Kano,
American wife of a Japanese poet, and
ward of Joaquin Miller. The declaration has caused a sensation in Oakland society, as an extensive branch of
the cult of Shintoism has been organized by society leaders there.
Mrs. Margaret Starback, owner of
the ranch on which the Kendalls were
living when they were killed, is the
leader of the Shinto cult in Oakland,
and Yamagachi, who was a member of
the cult, reported to her several days
before the triple murder was discovered that he had a fight with the elder
Kendall. Yamagachi disappeared, and
later the charred bones of the Kendall
family were found in an ash heap near
the ranch house.
Mrs. Kano has given no grounds for
her statement that Yamagachi killed
the Kendalls as a sacrifice to his gods,
but the police are carefully investigating this phase of the case. As yet there*
have been no arrests, and the search
for the missing Japanese has so far
proven unsuccessful.
FREE   LOTS   IN   ABITIBI
Next Year Agricultural Land Can Be
Had For Asking, Says Minister.
Montreal, August., 14.���Hon, Jules Al-
lard, provincial minister of crown lands,
in an interview here yesterday, said he
had received excellent reports from
Abitibi and that the surveying party
he has sent into that region will survey
more lots than may be asked by settlers
for many years.
"Next year," said the minister, "we
will be able to give free lots for the
asking and the lands will be the best
for agricultural purposes."
The minister of crown lands and
forests also added that he wss pleased
to state that his department was beginning to see some of the effects of
prohibition, of the export of pulp wood,
and he could say that many American
manufacturers were now negotiating
for the establishment of paper mills
in the province.
ADDITION TO ELLISON
James  H.   Rogers  Purchases  Land
Along Railway Line
James H. Rogers, the steamboat
agent, yesterday purchased eighty acres
of land adjoining the present townsite
of Ellison and is having it surveyed into
lots with the object of putting it on the
market as the first addition to the town-
site. The town of Ellison iB on the railway and was named after Hon. Price
Ellison, minister of lands and works.
It lies about seven miles below Hazelton
and is the centre of a rich agricultural
district.
The   Bad   Beef
G. W. says he is rather surprised that
the bad meat reports have not brought
forth several editorial obituaries accusing him of being responsible for
several recent deaths in this district.
He offers the opinion that the present
system of keeping the beef in wrappers
is responsible for much of it turning bad.
He thinks the system should be discontinued.

MINING ACTIVITY
AT GOOSE BAY
BIG MONEY EXPENDED ON HIDDEN CREEK PROPERTY
Best Water Power Plant In the
Country.���Ready to Slip Ore at
Any Time���Many Prospectors in
Observatory   Inlet   District.
M. W. Brewer, of Vietoria, the well
known mining expert, has just returned
from Observatory Inlet and has a good
account to give of the mining prospects
in that district. Chatting at the Inn
last night he told of a property he had
been to see at Goose Bay for the Pacific
Metals company, of which he is president
and J. L. Parker manager. Also of another property on Kasaan peninsula,
Prince of Wales Island.
The latter is being worked by the
Dean Copper company of Alaska
and in the opinion of Mr. Brewer it
shows some good prospects. The one
at Goose Bay on which his company
has taken a bond from Jim McGrath is
also a copper proposition and is about
three miles from the Hidden Creek
property, where M.K. Rodgers is spending such large amounts on development
work. Br. Brewer goes to Victoria today to report to his directors and is
inclined to think they will decide to do
some work this fall to open up the Goose
Bay claims.
"The Observatory Inlet country,"
observed Mr. Brewer, "promises to be
just as good as any in that district. The
work Mr. Rodgers has done there has
proven that the ore maintains its continuity for about four hundred feet
below the outcroppings, which means
that that section at least must result
in some producers. There is another
property only three miles from the beach,
called the Bonanza, on which they are
now working, and so far as the development has gone it gives good promise.
"But very few know or have any idea
of the  amount  of work  Mr.  Rogers
Get Preserving Jars
-AT-
SIMON'S FAIR
3rd A?e. Between 6th and 7th
WE SELL FOR LESS
has done on Hidden creek. He must
have expended some hundred thousand
dollars, and he has probably the best
water power plant there is in the country.
This runs his compressors, hoists, electric
light and everything. He has a plank
road four miles long and could ship ore
at any time.
"There has been a good deal of talk
of a smelter at Goose Bay, and experts
from New York went through here a
short time ago to look into the proposition. Just how the matter stands
at present I am unable to say, but it
would not surprise me at any time to
learn that the erection of a smelter had
been decided upon, and I believe the
district warrants it although the ore is
principally low grade."
Mr. Brewer concluded his interesting
chat by stating that there are a very
large number of prospectors in the country
about Observatory Inlet and Alice Arm
and probably this fall would see the
announcement of some interesting discoveries.

In Extradition Proceedings.��� Action Has Been Taken Under Fugitive Offenders Act.
Ottawa, August 15.���Enquiry from an
official versed in extraction proceedings elicited today the ct hitherto
overlooked that in order to comply
with all the requirements of law Dr.
Crippen will probably have to be kept
in Quebec jail for at least two weeks
longer.
It has generally been supposed that
Crippen will forthwith be sent back to
England in charge of Inspector Dew,
on the expiration of the fifteen days'
remand granted last week. Proceedings, however have been taken under
the Fugitive Offenders' Act. By the
provisions of the act, the warrant of
arrest issued in England, together with
the evidence on which it was issued
and proofs of the prisoner's identity,
must be submitted for the consideration of the judge who must deal with
the case in Quebec.
This will be done probably on Monday on receipt of the official papers
from England. On the finding of the
judge that the prisoner is a fugitive
from justice, then, according to the
act, fifteen days must elapse before the.
governor-general's warrant is made out,
directing the governor of the jail to deliver the prisoner to the charge of the
persons designated by the English
courts to insure his return to England.
The carrying out of all these formalities will take until August SI. It
was suggested that Crippen might
waive extradition proceedings, thus
obviating the above delay, but it was
pointed out that the procedure under
the Fugitive Offenders' Act was on a
different basis from ordinary extradition proceedings and British officials
would not be likely to give any loophole for technical objections being
raised by Crippen's counsel in England
on the score of irregularity in procedure in bringing him into I the i Eng-;
lish court without having first * complied with all the formalities of the law*

To be accidentally killed, crip.
pled, Winded, disabled or taken
ill at any time, and the value of
your time (which is money to
you) may be destroyed in a
moment.
No reasonable man goes without protection against loss from
the destruction of his property.
Did it ever occur to you that
your time has as distinct a value
as your property, or that your
life may be the property of your
family?
This protection is a duty you
owe yourself and those who may
be dependent upon you.
How dare you ignore this danger and go without adequate protection for yourself or family,
against Loss of Time, Total Disablement or Death?
