EARLY MORNING
LAUNDRY BLAZE
CHINAMEN      CAUGHT      ASLEEP
DASH  FOR  THEIR  LIVES
Building Entirely Burnt Out in
Spite of Firemen's Efforts and
Prompt Response to Call.���Alex.
Manson's   House   Endangered.
About four o'clock this morning fire
broke out in the Chinese Laundry
owned by King Ti, and situated on
Fifth avenue between McBride and
Bowser streets, and next door to the
house of Alex. Manson.
The inmates of the laundry were all
asleep at the time and had .the barest
possible escape with their lives for the
fire evidently started in the basement of
the building, and had got a firm grip
before it was noticed. The flames
spouting from the ground floor windows
were noticed by L. Crippen who ran
to the nearest fire alarm box two blocks
away. Within seven minutes Fire Chief
Mclnnis had turned out with full force
and the city's new hose reel was in for its
baptism   of   fire.
Meanwhile the frightened chinamen,
seven or eight in all, had come scrambling
pell mell into the open, the flames hot
on their heels. A couple of chests were
dragged with them but little else was
saved One chinaman complained of
injuries sustained in the scramble for
life in the darkness. He had fallen over
a stump.
Prom the first Fire Chief Mclnnis
saw that there was little chance of saving
the old frame building dry as tinder
after tfie recent hot weather. But the
sparks were flying over Mr. Manson's
house, and piles of lumber about the
laundry were catching continually. The
nearest hydrant is situated about three
blocks from the laundry at the comer
of Cotton street, and the whole length
of hose was employed to get the water to
t he blaze. Wires stretched here and there
about the laundry hindered the swift
operation of the hose from point to point.
So fierce was the heat at the height
f the fire that a number of bags of coal
piled near the laundry caught. They were
drenched and dragged away. The bridge
leading to the laundry across the sewer
trenches there also caught in the scorching heat.
Mr. Manson was roused from his sleep
to a sense of the danger by the crackling
and glare of the fire when it juBt reached
the laundry windows.
"It was a very picturesque fire when
at its height���about as pretty a fire as
you could see" he said as he satisfied
himself that the danger was over "but
it was rather too near to win my unqualified admiation."
The mist lying low in the hollows was
wonderfully illuminated by the ruddy
glow from the blazing building and the
dark mountains towering behind in-
tensfied the glare. Just as the dawn
light broke over the mountain crests
the fire sank sputtering into hissing
blackness under the steady stream of
water, and today's sunshine reveals only
a pile of charred wood and tangled wires
whavre the laundry stood.
Alex. Manson is glad no one was hurt,
"ut not altogether sorry the laundry
* no more. "There won't be another
erected there" he says. "The by-law
restricting these laundries to a certain
Oistnet will be passed pretty soon now."
LOST HER HEIRLOOMS
Countess Minto One of the Victims
Of Hotel Robbery
(Special to the Optimist)
Winnipeg, aSept. 14.���The Countess
Minto, who had her family heirlooms
stolen at the Alexandria Hotel here,
was only one of the victims of an organized gang who have robbed the
Canadian Pacific guests and passengers
from Vancouver to Fort William. The
police are now working on a clue.
Manufacturers Invited
In accordance with the resolution
passed by the Board of Trade on Monday
evening, aSecretary M. M. Stephens
this morning sent a telegram to'John
Hendry, vice president of the Manufacturers' association, cordially inviting
the delegates to the conference to visit
Prince Rupert.
ELLISON LOTS
Property In the First G. T. P. Terminal is in Big Demand
Ellison townsite lots are selling very
rapidly and there will be a lot of property
in the first G. T. P. terminal point east
of here owned right in Prince Rupert.
Since the sale was announced in the
Optimist a large number of local people
have called at C. D. Newton's office to
get further information and not a few
of those have invested in one or more
lots. Each mail is also bringing in enquiries and the sale promises to be a big
success. Ellison is in the heart of a very
rich country and it will also be an important railway town.
CRIPPEN CASE
IS COLLAPSING
QUESTION   OF    IDENTITY   OF
BODY  IS ARGUED
Seattle Beats Tacoma
Vancouver, Sept. 14.-(Speciai)���There
was no league game at Vancouver
yesterday. Seattle beat Tacoma by a
score of seven to two.
Government Analyst Says Even Sex
Cannot Be Determined Without
Anatomical Investigation���Famous
Playwrights   Attend   Hearing.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, aSept. 14.���In the Bow street
police court this morning Dr. Pepper,
government analyst, repudiated the
testimony relative to the sex of the
lime-eaten body found in the Crippen
cellar and previously declared to be that
of Belle Elmore, the wife of Crippen
There was no question, he said, that it
was a human body, but it would be
impossible to determine the sex without
an anatomical investigation.
The doctor was put through a gruel
ling cross-examination by Barrister
Arthur Newton, who appears for the
accused. He brought out some damaging admissions from Dr. Pepper, who
had previously maintained that the
identity of the body had been established beyond a doubt. It is now believed
that unless more convincing evidence
is brought forward the case against
Crippen must collapse.
Dr. Crippen said the scar on the body
was old and he believed it had resulted
from a surgical operation. The body
had evidently been buried between four
and eight months when discovered.
Miss Le Neve is elated over the success
which is attending the efforts of barrister
Newton, but as a result of the nervous
strain she is undergoing a break down is
immiment.
The dramatic features of the case are
appealing to playwrights, and upon
special permits from the judge Sir
William Gilbert, Sir John Hare and H. B.
Irving were present at the hearing this
morning.
FRASER RIVER
VALLEY FIRES
MANY OF RANCHERS HOMES ARE
DESTROYED
Heavy Pall of Smoke Over Whole
Valley.���Bush Fires Declared To Be
Beyond Control.���Stock Burned
Up   and    Crop    Badly    Damaged.
(Special to the Optimist)
New Westminster, Sept. 14.���The
whole of the Fraser River valley is one
great pall of black smoke from bush
fires. These fires range for miles and
miles and are utterly beyond control.
Unless heavy rain comes the damage will
be immense. Many of the ranchers' homes
and stock have already been destroyed
and many others are threatened. The
crops are also badly damaged.
White Rock is still menaced. All the
animals which had sought refuge in the
woods have been forced out on to the
beach.
ANOTHER DISASTER
Count   Zeppelin's   Largest   Balloon
Is  Destroyed  By  Fire
(Special to the Optimist)
Berlin,   Sept.   14.���Count   Zeppelin's
big dirible was this morning destroyed
by fire near Baden-Baden.   It was the
largest air craft in the world.
POINDEXTER WINNER
Result of Primary Elections in State
Of Washington
(Special to the Optimist)
Seattle, Sept. 14.���Congressman Poin-
dexter is an easy winner in the struggle
for senator at the primary elections,
but it was an insurgent victory for all the
other state offices.
AIRSHIPS    FOR    YUKON
Government    Surveyors    May    Use
Them For Inaccessible Spots
FORMER AMBASSADOR
Joseph H. Choate Threatened With
Expulsion From Bar
CROWDING OUT
THE AMERICANS
Chattanooga, Tenn., Sept. 12.���
Charges that Joseph P. Choates of New
York, former ambassador from the
United States to Great Britain, has
been guilty of violation of the constitution of the American Bar Association in a failure to uphold the honor
of the profession of the law, and a
petition that he be expelled from the
bar association, were presented to that
body today and referred to the committee on grievances.
The charges were filed by James R.
Watts, of New York, through his attorney, George W. Chamler of this
city, a member of the bar association.
The charges are that Mr. Choate has
violated the confidence of his clients,
James R. Watts and wife; that he violated the canons of ethics of the American
Bar Association; has been guilty of
divers and many offences in violation
of good morals and fair dealings, and
has brought dishonor and disgrace
upon the American Bar Association.
The first charge has to do with certain litigation entrusted to Mr. Choates
and his associates in the firm of Evarts,
Choate & Beaman of New York city
and in an associate partnership with
Treadwell of  Cleveland  Ohio.
BONDED NINE CLAIMS
Development   Work   To   Start   On
Princess   Royal   Island
Dawson, Y. T., .Sept. 10. .���Thomas
Reilly, head of the international boundary survey, covering the section be
tween Glacier and Ladue creeks, has
arrived here after having finished his
work. The members of the survey
started yesterday by steamer for the
Coast. Parties covering the section
north of the Yukon river, working toward -Porcupine river, are expected
here within a week or so. Most of the
work south of the Yukon river is completed except through the Alaskan
alps, which are declared impenetrable
by either horses or mushers. It is now
proposed that an airship be used to
reach certain points otherwise in accessible. This may be done next year or
the season following.
INFANTILE   PARALYSIS
Disease Spreading at Alarming Rate
Through Ontario
Hamilton, Ont., Sept. 10.���The
dread epidemic of infantile paralysis
which is spreading over Ontario is
growing in Hamilton, where the outbreak was first discovered, at an alarming rate. It is estimated that there
are over a hundred cases here now.
Yesterday the disease claimed another
adult and today two more adults. In
Mount Hope and vicinity three adults
have died within the past two days.
The authorities say they are powerless
to check the epidemic.
Messrs. A. B. Clabon and Fred M.
Wells have taken a bond on the D,
L. S. group, consisting of nine crown
granted claims, situated near Surf Inlet, Princess Royal Island, from the
owner, Mr. Earnest A. Cleveland of
Vancouver.
Work has been carried on for the
past three months under Mr. Wells'
management   with   gratifying   results.
A company is being formed under
the name of the Surf Inlet Gold Mines,
Lts., to take over the D. L. S. group
and also the water record of 10,000
inches held by the surf Inlet Power
Company. Mr. Andrew G. Larsen
visited the property in June and made a
report and recommendations for future
development.
Here are two parallel veins about
100 feet apart, on the larger of which
a tunnel has been driven for 300 feet
on the vein. At a point about 225
feet from the portal a crosscut has exposed fifteen feet of ore which averages $15 gold per ton. A shaft has
been sunk sixty-five feet from the surface directly above this point, a crosscut at the bottom of which shows the
vein to be nineteen feet in width of
similar ore as that below.
A turnel has also been driven which
crosscuts the upper and smaller vein
at 100 feet, which has exposed three
to four feet of ore which averages $30
to $40 in gold per ton. The ore is a
quartz with some sulphides and is
easily concentrated.
TWO HUNDRED  LOST
Perished   In   Fire   Which   Followed
Explosion    in    Mine
(Special to the Optimist)
Ter re Haute, Ind., Sept. 14.���It is be
lieved that at least two hundred perished in the explosion at the Dugger mine
in Sullivan county. The workings
caught fire after the explosion. Scores
of men are now struggling to gain an
entrance in the hope of rescueing some
of those entombed.
CANADA    WILL    PROTECT    HER
WHALING INDUSTRY
Monopoly So Long Enjoyed by American Poacher Is to be Exploited
by Canadians From Vancouver to
the Arct'c Ocean
Vancouver, B. C, Sept. 11.���Representing themselves and McKenzie-Mann
interests, Col. Davidson and A. D.
McRae, millionaires from Winnipeg and
Vancouver, are planning to exploit
Arctic whaling. Two steamers and a
sailing ship will be despatched to the
Arctic regions next spring from Vancouver, and a station will be established on the mainland or on one of
the many groups of islands.
The entire region east of the boundary line between Alaska and the Dominion, and extending to the North
pole, is claimed to be wholly within
British territory. It embraces a vast
archipelago, notice of ownership of
which has been proclaimed to the world
by Canada, through the British foreign
office.
In the summer months the waters
adjacent to the mainland, including the
estuary at the mouth of the Mackenzie river, are open and can be navigated by sea-going vessels. This has
been demonstrated by the success of
American whalers which have been
poaching in these waters for nearly
twenty years.
The fact that the owners of these
vessels imported goods for trading
purposes and liquor resulted several
years ago in the Dominion government establishing a mounted police
station and placing a customs officer
on Herschel island, the rendezvous of
the fleet. The vigilance of the authorities was rewarded by the collection
of thousnads of dollars of revenue, as
well as the suppression of the illicit
sale of intoxicants.
Conjecture is rife as to what policy
the Dominion government will adopt
in these northern waters, now that
Canadian capital is about to exploit
the industry. There seems to be no
doubt that the American poachers who
have enjoyed a monopoly there can be
warned not to invade Canadian waters
if the Ottawa authorities assert their
rights.
A   Bag  That  Wasn't
J. G. Scott who returned last night
from a hunting expedition around Shaw-
atlaus Lake gives an amusing account
of his experiences. The bag might
have been four deer and a bear. The
reason for the "might have been" about
that bag is alleged to be J. G. Scott.
Mr. Scott admits that he fired all right
at those deer, and that he squared up to
the bear in the bush, but the bullets
didn't find their billet, and Bruin still
roams the forest while no one is more
amused at the whole thing than the
jovial J. G. himself.
DRYDOCK FOR ST JOHN
Sir Arthur Perks Arrives To Examine
Facilities    Offered
St. John, Sept. 10.���Sir Robert Perks,
the eminent English engineer, is in the
for the purpose of, he stated, looking closely to the facilities for the
large drydock and shipbuilding plant
which it is proposed to build here. Sir
Robert confirmed the belief that a steel
shipbuilding plant is a part of the
scheme. He did not give a definite answer, but said action by Arthur Perks
& Co. would largely depend on the aid
given by the government. /

MEMBER FOR
THE ISLANDS
QUEEN CHARLOTTE WANTS| ONE
OF   HER   OWN
Agitating for Separate Constitution
and Representation in the Legislative Assembly���Thompson Low
one of the Prime Movers
Among the recent arrivals in the city
from the northern districts of British
Columbia is Mr. Thompson Low, of
Queen Charlotte Islands, who is a
guest at the Leland hotel, says The
Vancouver-News Advertiser. Mr. Low
is a resident of Pacifico, Q. C. I., and,
naturally thinks that there is no part
of British Columbia which is more full
of promise than that particular locality in which he is interested. He had i
the pleasure of being the intimate and
confidential companion of Hon. Thos.
Taylor, minister of public works, and
of the hon. member for Skeena, Mr.
William Manson, M. L. A., in the trip
of the latter on the tour of inspection
recently made over the district.
A chat with Mr. Low is a treat as
he is an Imperialist and a prvoincial-
ist, with the necessary localization,
whose equal is difficult to meet. Ardently Imperial in his sympathies and
with a thorough knowledge of the proper relation of the affairs of one part
of a section of the empire to another
he looks over Queen Charlotte Islands
with as envious, or unenvious, an eye
as Robinson Crusoe looked over the
fabled island of Juan Fernandez.
Mr. Low keeps himself well imformed
in matters political, both as to provincial, Dominion and Imperial affairs.
On the question of provincial matters
he asys that there is no doubt that
before the next general election there
will be a demand for an order-in-council constituting the Queen Charlotte
group of islands a separate constituency entitled to personal representation
in the legislative assembly.
"There are a few local jealousies,"
said Mr. Low, between the several
towns, cities and centres on the islands,
but in view of the combined and concentred interests of the whole of these
places, common sense must prevail
and no personal element could enter
into the question of a candidate's popularity or fitness for representation
in the parliament of the province. It
is too big a territory to be represented
by any one man under the existing circumstances, and while we have every
confidence in our present emmber, the
time is not far away when we shall
need to have a specific presentation
of our specific needs before the floor
of the house. There is some prospect
that the cabinet will look favorably
on this increase of representation."
That a strong agitation for separate
constitution and representation as a
district is likely to emanate from the
Queen Charlotte Islands man be taken
upon Mr. Low's word. Mr. Low will
not be a candidate himself.
SUPERB SOIL FOR
FRUIT GROWING
IN UP-RIVER VALLEYS ACCORDING   TO    PRACTICAL   TEST
J. R. Anderson Late Deputy Minister
of Agriculture is More Than Satisfied After Special Trip to Best
Soil   For   Fruit   Growers.
PLACER  IN  THE NAAS
Alluvial   Gravels   Discovered   on   a
Tributary Stream
Prospectors who returned from the
Naas river country to Hazelton caused
a rush to a section where it is reported
placer ground has been found. The
particular locality is said to be a creek
called White creek, a tributary of the
Naas river. White creek is said to have
its source in the Bitter creek glacier,
and the small tributaries flowing into
it are said to have returned a large amount
to the pan. The men who came in with
the news made the trip over the Bitter
creek glacier and those who went to the
strike are said to taken the route over
the Bitter creek divide.
Must   Not  Read  Newspapers
Paris, Sept. 12.���A despatch from
Rome states that the Pope has started
a crusade against "modernism" by issuing a regulation forbidding the young
clergy to read newspapers and periodicals which might distract them from
their studies.
After travelling for some weeks with
some friends on a journey of inspection
in the up river district J. R. Anderson
late Deputy Minister of Agriculture
arrived on Tuesday in Prince Rupert
from Hazelton. The purpose of his
journey has been principally to investigate soil conditions in the up river valleys
with a view to fruit growing.
Mr. Anderson has visited Hazelton,
Sealeyville and Ellison, and has studied
the district from the point of view of a
fruit farmer, and has formed a splendid
opinion of the capabilities of the soil
in this valley.
"You can safely say" he told The
Optimiist "that in my opinion the soil
there is for fruit growing as good as
would be hardly fair as it possesses the
advantage over the Okanagan that it
requires no artifical irrigation. The sub-
irrigation is ample even in the driest
year. It was ample this year, and I
am told this is a particularly dry year.
"I saw some splendid apple trees
growing at Kitsumkalum, and plum
trees and cherries flourish there. As
regards the Kootenay district, in my
opinion this valley is even better and
it is certainly ahead as regards soil for
the soil is free from stones and much
more level. I consider the upper branch
of the valley would be preferable for
apples than the lower branches.
"One remarkable thing I noticed
about this valley. That is that no frost
has yet attacked the most delicate
plants. The potato leaves are all green
there. Now I have just recently been
at Comox in Vancouver Island and there
noticed that already a severe frost has
occurred this year blighting tender
growth. Evidently   it    has    not
reached the upper river valleys.
"Of course the ground is well wooded
but principally with poplars and cotton
wood which are easily cleared. There
is an abundance of water supply for
all purposes. I went over the ground
in the vicinity of Ellison townsite and
the ground in the upper branches of
the valley which is even more easily
cleared and at a very moderate expense.
The soil gives ample depth for fruit
of all kinds. I saw beautiful sweetpeas
and asters growing at Hazelton. The
district above Meanskinisht is a great
strwaberry country, and here too I
saw a wonderful growth of wheat. Mr.
Vital Soucie who has a patch of his land
50 ft by 100 ft under strawberries there
of the Magoro variety took thirty-two
crates of fruit off there this season and
sold it at an average of 25 cents a pound.
"All the soil of these valleys needs is
aeration by means of cultivation to
make it magnificent for producing
fruit without any manuring. That is my
opinion after specially travelling the
district to test the soil with some friends
who mean to take up fruit ranching
there."

After having been without a permanent pastor for nearly a year the
members of the First Preibyterian
church have been looking forward to the
arrival of Rev. W. F Kerr who is
to arrive today. He will be accompanied by a brother pastor and
member of the presbytery of New Westminster from Vancouver and will, be
inducted to his new charge on Thursday
evening.
Rev. W. F. Kerr is a young man and
promising preacher who has been excellently recommended for the work he
is to undertake in Prince Rupert. He
has been engaged in mission work in
various parts of Canada, and his zeal
as a student recently earned for him a
scholarship enabling him to travel to
Germany where he has during the past
year been engaged in completing his
theological course. He will be welcomed
to Prince Rupert by several members
of the board of management of the
church, and prominent members of the
congregation.
There is a small financial burden upon
the First Presbyterian church at present,
a matter of $600 which consists partly
of a debt to the building fund, and partly
of a deficit arising from the unsettled
state of the congregation and impossibility of organizing .the contributions
systematically during the growths of
supply services in which the expenditure
has of course continued as usual.
Steps are now being taken to wipe
this liability off entirely and let Rev.
Mr. Kerr enter upon an absolutely
unburdened charge. A circular letter to
the members and adherents of the church
has just been sent out by Dr. J. O.
Reddie, chairman of the board of management, urgently requesting them to make
a special effort to raise the amount required. A committee of the board of
management is to wait upon members
and adherents of the" church during this
and the following week. It is intended
that the $600 will be raised entirely
within the congregation itself.
By and by the congregation hopes to
have matters forward enough to begin
building their new church on the site
already secured for it, and a rapidly
increasing membership is confidently
anticipated.

Question of Salaries For Members of
House of Commons Tl Become a
Live One After Lords Veto Bill Is
Disposed of.
London, Sept. 10.���The payment of
members of Parliament will be one of
the live questions of British politics
after the Lords' veto has been disposed of. The British Parliament is
one of the very few national legislative bodies which serves without pay.
This may have* been all right in the
days of restricted suffrage and pocket
boroughs when only the gentry were
supposed to be sent to the Commons,
but there is steadily increasing a
number of members of Parliament
who must be secured an income at
least sufficient to live on. This is particularly true of parties most of whose
members are without means. Thanks
to the Irish-Americans largely, the
Irish party is able to take care of its
members, and up to a short time ago
the Labor party, through an assessment levied on trades union members,
met the expenses of its members of
Parliament. The courts have, however, declared this illegal and the Labor
party is facing a crisis.
It will result in a determined effort
to adopt the payment of salaries to
members of parliament and there is
little doubt that it will be successful.
The proposal of the railway servants is that a central legal defence
fund should be formed for the purpose of "carrying to the highest legal
court any test case affecting the fundamental principles of organized labor."
Such a fund is so obviously necessary
that it is surprising that it has not yet
been instituted. For example, practically
the whole of the cost of recent litigation
on the political application of the trades
union funds have been borne by the
railway servants in the Osborne case.
But the decision is one which affects
every trade union, and the railway servants were fighting the battle of them
all. A small union could not have faced
the cost, but the establishment of a
central defence fund would make the
motto of the trade unions in really
fundamental questions "Touch one,
touch all."

At the tenth annual convention of the
Union of Canadian Municipalities,
recently held in Toronto, Secretary
Lighthall in his summary of the work of
the Union made some startling observations regarding the grasping operations of combined capital. He said in
part.
"We have found specially troublesome
a certain large combination, the Bell Telephone company which is an essentially
United States corporation, a form of
the American Bell company and follows
its methods. After years of contestations we obtained our points. Another
of Canadian origin and which has proved the most serious and deftly managed
organization the municipalities have
thus far had to fight, is the Mackenzie-
Mann combination.
But both are now overshadowed by
the Pierpont Morgan influence. We have
it on good authority that this financial
organization is so complete that all the
principal city franchises of water, power
and the great resources generally of
Canada are now mapped out in New
York for systematic invasion on the same
lines as those of the United States
Consequently terminal bills and power
and canal bills on a vast scale, scientifically directed have been appearing
on the horizon with powerful New York
backing for the past three years and
constitute the most formidable questions
affecting our national heritage."

Among the recent arrivals in the city
from the northern districts of British
Columbia is Mr. Thompson Low, of
Queen Charlotte Islands, who is a
guest at the Leland hotel, says The
Vancouver-News Advertiser. Mr. Low
is a resident of Pacifico, Q. C. I., and,
naturally thinks that there is no part
of British Columbia which is more full
of promise than that particular locality in which he is interested. He had
the pleasure of being the intimate and
confidential companion of Hon. Thos.
Taylor, minister of public works, and
of the hon. member for Skeena, Mr.
William Manson, M. L. A., in the trip
of the latter on the tour of inspection
recently made over the district.
A chat with Mr. Low is a treat as
he is an Imperialist and a prvoincial-
ist, with the necessary localization,
whose equal is difficult to meet. Ardently Imperial in his sympathies and
with a thorough knowledge of the proper relation of the affairs of one part
of a section of the empire to another
he looks over Queen Charlotte Islands
with as envious, or unenvious, an eye
as Robinson Crusoe looked over the
fabled island of Juan Fernandez.
Mr. Low keeps himself well imformed
in matters political, both as to provincial, Dominion and Imperial affairs.
On the question of provincial matters
he asyB that there is no doubt that
before the next general election there
will be a demand for an order-in-council constituting the Queen Charlotte
group of islands a separate constituency entitled to personal representation
in the legislative assembly.
"There are a few local jealousies,"
said Mr. Low, between the several
towns, cities and centres on the islands,
but in view of the combined and concentred interests of the whole of these
places, common sense must prevail
and no personal element could enter
into the question of a candidate's popularity or fitness for representation
in the parliament of the province. It
is too big a territory to be represented
by any one man under the existing circumstances, and while we have every
confidence in our present emmber, the
time is not far away when we shall
need to have a specific presentation
of our specific needs before the floor
of the house. There is some prospect
that the cabinet will look favorably
on this increase of representation."
That a strong agitation for separate
constitution and representation as a
district is likely to emanate from the
Queen Charlotte Islands man be taken
upon Mr. Low's word. Mr. Low will
not be a candidate himself.

Must   Not  Read   Newspapers
Paris, Sept. 12.���A despatch from
Rome states that the Pope has started
a crusade against "modernism" by issuing a regulation forbidding the young
clergy to read newspapers and periodicals which might distract them from
their studies.
After travelling for some weeks with
some friends on a journey of inspection
in the up river district J. R. Anderson
late Deputy Minister of Agriculture
arrived on Tuesday in Prince Rupert
from Hazelton. The purpose of his
journey has been principally to investigate soil conditions in the up river valleys
with a view to fruit growing.
Mr. Anderson has visited Hazelton,
Sealeyville and Ellison, and has studied
the district from the point of view of a
fruit farmer, and has formed a splendid
opinion of the capabilities of the soil
in this valley.
"You can safely say" he told The
Optimiist "that in my opinion the soil
there is for fruit growing as good as
would be hardly fair as it possesses the
advantage over the Okanagan that it
requires no artifical irrigation. The sub-
irrigation is ample even in the driest
year. It was ample this year, and I
am told this is a particularly dry year.
"I saw some splendid apple trees
growing at Kitsumkalum, and plum
trees and cherries flourish there. As
regards the Kootenay district, in my
opinion this valley is even better and
it is certainly ahead as regards soil for
the soil is free from stones and much
more level. I consider the upper branch
of the valley would be preferable for
apples than the lower branches.
"One remarkable thing I noticed
about this valley. That is that no frost
has yet attacked the most delicate
plants. The potato leaves are all green
there. Now I have just recently been
at Comox in Vancouver Island and there
noticed that already a severe frost has
occurred this year blighting tender
growth. Evidently   it    has    not
reached the upper river valleys.
"Of course the ground is well wooded
but principally with poplars and cotton
wood which are easily cleared. There
is an abundance of water supply for
all purposes. I went over the ground
in the vicinity of Ellison townsite and
the ground in the upper branches of
the valley which is even more easily
cleared and at a very moderate expense.
The soil gives ample depth for fruit
of all kinds. I saw beautiful sweetpeas
and asters growing at Hazelton. The
district above Meanskinisht is a great
strwaberry country, and here too I
saw a wonderful growth of wheat. Mr.
Vital Soucie who has a patch of his land
50 ft by 100 ft under strawberries there
of the Magoro variety took thirty-two
crates of fruit off there this season and
sold it at an average of 25 cents a pound.
"All the soil of these valleys needs is
aeration by means of cultivation to
make it magnificent for producing
fruit without any manuring. That is my
opinion after specially travelling the
district to test the soil with some friends
who mean to take up fruit ranching
there."

After having been without a permanent pastor, for nearly a. year the
members of the Fir<t Presbyterian
church have been looking forward to the
arrival of Rev. W. F Kerr who is
to arrive today. He will be accompanied by a brother pastor and
member of the presbytery of New Westminster from Vancouver and will, be
inducted to his new charge on Thursday
evening.
Rev. W. F. Kerr is a young man and
promising preacher who has been excellently recommended for the work he
is to undertake in Prince Rupert. He
has been engaged in mission work in
various parts of Canada, and his zeal
as a student recently earned for him a
scholarship enabling him to travel to
Germany where he has during the past
year been engaged in completing his
theological course. He will be welcomed
to Prince Rupert by several members
of the board of management of the
church, and prominent members of the
congregation.
There is a small financial burden upon
the First Presbyterian church at present,
a matter of $600 which consists partly
of a debt to the building fund, and partly
of a deficit arising from the unsettled
state of the congregation and impossibility of organizing .the contributions
systematically during the growths of
supply services in which the expenditure
has of course continued as usual.
Steps are now being taken to wipe
this liability off entirely and let Rev.
Mr. Kerr enter upon an absolutely
unburdened charge. A circular letter to
the members and adherents of the church
has just been sent out by Dr. J. 0.
Reddie, chairman of the board of management, urgently requesting them to make
a special effort to raise the amount required. A committee of the board of
management is to wait upon members
and adherents of the church during this
and the following week. It is intended
that the $600 will be raised entirely
within the congregation itself.
By and by the congregation hopes to
have matters forward enough to begin
building their new church on the site
already secured for it, and a rapidly
increasing membership is confidently
anticipated.

London, Sept. 10.���The payment of
members of Parliament will be one of
the live questions of British politics
after the Lords' veto has been disposed of. The British Parliament is
one of the very few national legislative bodies which serves without pay.
This may have' been all right in the
days of restricted suffrage and pocket
boroughs when only the gentry were
supposed to be sent to the Commons,
but there is steadily increasing a
number of members of Parliament
who must be secured an income at
least sufficient to live on. This is particularly true of parties most of whose
members are without means. Thanks
to the Irish-Americans largely, the
Irish party is able to take care of its
members, and up to a short time ago
the Labor party, through an assessment levied on trades union members,
met the expenses of its members of
Parliament. The courts have, however, declared this illegal and the Labor
party is facing a crisis.
It will result in a determined effort
to adopt the payment of salaries to
members of parliament and there is
little doubt that it will be successful.
The proposal of the railway servants is that a central legal defence
fund should be formed for the purpose of "carrying to the highest legal
court any test case affecting the fundamental principles of organized labor."
Such a fund is so obviously necessary
that it is surprising that it has not yet
been instituted. For example, practically
the whole of the cost of recent litigation
on the political application of the trades
union funds have been borne by the
railway servants in the Osborne case.
But the decision is one which affects
every trade union, and the railway servants were fighting the battle of them
all. A small union could not have faced
the cost, but the establishment of a
central defence fund would make the
motto of the trade unions in really
fundamental questions "Touch one,
touch all."

which we guarantee to be absolutely

We will serve them in the shell, and will

At the tenth annual convention of the
Union of Canadian Municipalities,
recently held in Toronto, .Secretary
Lighthall in his summary of the work of
the Union made some startling observations regarding the grasping operations of combined capital. He said in
part.
"We have found specially troublesome
a certain large combination, the Bell Telephone company which is an essentially
United States corporation, a form of
the American Bell company and follows
its methods. After years of contestations we obtained our points. Another
of Canadian origin and which has proved the most serious and deftly managed
organization the municipalities have
thus far had to fight, is the Mackenzie-
Mann combination.
But both are now overshadowed by
the Pierpont Morgan influence. We have
it on good authority that this financial
organization is so complete that all the
principal city franchises of water, power
and tbe great resources generally of
Canada are now mapped out in New
York for systematic invasion on the same
lines as those of the United States
Consequently terminal bills and power
and canal bills on a vast scale, scientifically directed have been appearing
on the horizon with powerful New York
backing for the past three years and
constitute the most formidable questions
affecting our national heritage."

A MILLION DOLLARS FOR WHAT?
It is generally understood that the city council has arranged to borrow sums up
to the amount of $1,000,000 from the Bank of Montreal at 6 p.c. interest, the bank to
dispose of debentures issued at such prices as they may realize and to get a commission on the sale. This seems to be a pretty bold stroke of business on the part
of the city council. Under the Municipal Clauses Act the city council may raise
without submitting a by-law to the people sums of money for local improvements
on the frontage tax system Jbut the most liberal interpretation of the act does not
authorize the raising of a million dollars on the credit of the whole city for waterworks, streets, sewers, electric light plant, telephone plant and other items without
the approval of the electors.
Having arranged for this amount of money without consulting the electors it is
up to the city council to explain on what authority it was done and what they propose doing with it. Is it to be expended in all sections under the frontage tax system?
Arranging for such a tremendous loan under the authority of the local improvement
clause of the uct is something never anticipated by the electors or even by the compilers of the Act itself. The expenditure of such immense sums, even under the
frontage tax system, without it being submitted to the electors is iniquitious legisla-
tion.but it would seem that the present councilor those who control its voting strength,
are prepared to go to any extreme to carry out the ridiculous Lynch theories of taxation on public improvements, so long as they do not have to consult the people.
It is astonishing, but apparently true, that within the short space of four months
the city council have become so afraid of publicity and of the people that they seek
shelter behind a section of the Municipal Clauses Act instead of submitting their I
plans fair the approval of the electors. By their secrecy the council may for a short
time keep from the public the fact that they are all at sea in their ideas of civic
business, but it will not take long for the discovery that they are utterly discreditedin
the minds of the public.

nearly every kind of trimming will be
used. Most of them, however, incline
to modesty and the favorites are beaver
and velvets. These two styles will be
largely worn and they are made up in
such size and shape to suit the individual. Feathers, wings and ostrich
plumes are the favorite trimmings, and
for a season fruits and flowers will be
in the second rank.
There has always been a demand for
the tailored hats and now Mrs. Frizzell
hx* them, and the beauty of it is. they
are strictly in style. Tailored hats will
be largely worn all over and they are
very fashionable. During the past two
days a large number of ladies have
visited Mrs. Frizzell's and placed their
orders for fall hats.
Miss      Bat beau's
Miss Barbeau has just returned from
the south where she spent some time
gathering up idea* tor the fall millinery
opening. She will be ready in her new
store in the Helgerson block next week
and she will have a complete stock of
new millinery and trimmings to show*.
Mrs.  Demers
A more beautiful display of millinery
than Mrs. Demers opened up this morning would be hard to find or even to
conceive. The fall opening took place
today  and   a   large  number  of  ladies
C. V. BENNETT, N. G.
G.   W.   ARNOTT,   Sec.
visited the store and were delighted
to find that they could wear almost any
pretty hat and be fashionable. The
hat must, however, be pretty. It is a
long time since the styles were so varied
and yet the freak hats have been il-
liminated. The leaders are the beavers,
velvet and the turbans in fur. with velvet
or silk crowns. The favorite trimmings
are feathers and ostrich plumes and some
of Mrs. Demers" hats are exceptionally
handsome as they are not over burdened
with a lot of decorations. They are all
modest and yet attractive, and everyone
should be well satisfied. The predominating colors for this season are
black. poinsetta?e ra��d. nattier blue and
amethyst. And in no case are all the
colors put in one hat. Mrs. Demers
sends a cordial invitation to all the ladies
of Prince Rupert to visit her millinery
opening.

LIFE INSURANCE
Rev. Henry Ward Beecher:
"Your affairs may become involved,
and your property taken for debt,
but a thousand dollars insurance on
your life cannot be taken for debt;
cannot be alienated from your heirs;
and if you have chosen your Company discreetly, is subject to no 1
commercial risks. It is as nearly
sure as anything earthly can be."
Bishop Henry C. Potter.
"Life Insurance has advantages,
especially to persons of small means,
which it does not seem easy to over-
slate. To those of my own profession it furnishes a method of laying
by for 'a rainy day' of all the most
practicable and effectual."
President Wm. H. Taft:
"A man in office without means
must abandon the hope of making
the future of his family luxuriously
comfortable. All a man can do under existing circumstances to safeguard his family is to get his life insured."
Hon. Theodore Roosevelt:
"Life Insurance increases the stability of the business world, raises
its moral tone and puts a premium
upon those habits of thrift and saving which are so essential to the
welfare of the people as a body."
IS YOUR LIFE INSURED?
IF NOT:���Can you give any good
reason ��� other than ineligibility -
why you should not insure ?    ?   ?

Sustains Contentions of Canadian
Government, but Ruling in Minor
Clauses Is in Favor of United State*
Contentions
The Hague, .Sept. 10.���As a result ol
the decision handed down today by
[ the arbitration tribunal in the New-
1 foundland fisheries dispute Great Britain practically wins all that she contended for. The decision was in the
nature of a compromise. There were
seven points of difference of which
Great Britain wins number one and
five and the United States the remaining five. However, the very points
on which the decision favors Great
Britian were those on which the keenest
argument was had and on which greatest
stress was laid by the eminent council
engaged by Great Britain and Canada.
Great Britain's contentions with respect to the measurement of the three-
mile limit and the regulations of the
fisheries by Newfoundland laws, the
methods of taking fish, the style of
nets to be used and a number of other
more or less important points were
upheld by the tribunal. These were
the most important points in dispute.
The United States secured the right to
employ Newfoundlanders on fishing
vessels and a number of minor concessions. The court was unanimous
on nearly all points though there was
some difference of opinion over the
question of excluding American fishermen from waters which were claimed to
be within British jurisdiction.

Sanitary Inspector's Warning
A report from L. E. Macfarlane the
city sanitary inspector was read by the
city clerk at the meeting of council.
The report dealt with the detection
and destruction of meat discovered by
Mr. Macfarlane to be in a state unfit
for human consumption. The Sanitary
Inspector takes this opportunity of
warning meat importers and vendors
generally that the exposure of meat for
sale when it is in a condition unfit for
food renders the offender liable to appear in court.
When jealousy flies out of the window
it usually takes love along it for no other
reason than to keep from getting lonesome.

HOMER "PRINCE GEORGE "
A Messenger From the Grand Trunk
Pacific Ship
In the pigeon lofts of the Wallsend
shipyard, Newcastle-on-Tyne, where the
steamships "Prince Rupert" and "Prince
George" of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Steamship fleet were built, the young
homer "Prince George" makes his home,
and none of the celebrated birds of these
lofts have a better record, or are more
highly prized than he.
It has been customary to liberate a
bird from the deck of each of the splendid ships built by the Swan Hunter &
Wigham Richardson Company, ltd.,
including the "Mauretania" of the
Cunard Line, to carry a message home
confirming the wireless record of the
ship's performance. When the S. S.
"Prince George" started on her trial
trip, this young blue cock was caged
aboard until required. He was liberated
with a message attached, off the coast
of Dover, distance 300 miles, and 100
miles east of line of flight���tossed 11:30
a.m. 8th of May, home 12 noon on the
9th. Owing to this magnificint performance, the owners christened him
"Prince, George" and it is gratifying to
learn that this and later performances
have been unsurpassed.

NUMBER   OF   YEARS
McCullough House, An Old Time
Landmark, Totally Destroyed, Including Printing Plant Used For
Making Translations From Indian
Charles Clay, just in from the Naas
river country, brings word of the destruction by fire of the McCullough House
a land mark on the river for many years.
Mr Clay left Bitter creek on August
14th and reached the McCullough House
at Aiyansh on September 7th, the day
the fire occurred, intending to stay there
for the night.but found the place a heap
of smouldering ruins.
Rev. J. B. McCullough and his family
were the only white people in the district.
He had been engaged in missionary work
there for twenty-eight years, and has with
him his wife and little daughter and a
grown daughter and her husband. He
had a small newspaper plant and was
engaged in making translations from the
Indian tongue and also printing in that
tongue as an important part of his work.
This plant was destroyed together with
his home. Mr. Clay places the loss at
$7000. and says there was no insurance.
Mr. Clay had Hard nothing of the
placer discovery on White creek, a
tributary of Bitter He knows the
locality but said he was on the other side
of the Naas within five miles of the
White. He was not after mineral but
land and he located in the vicinity of the
McCullough House and returned. He
says the amount of desirable land in the
Naas valley is smaller than is generally
believed. The bottoms are small and the
uplands in most cases unfit for agricultural purposes.

ALDOUS S ROBERTSON, Hazelton, B.C.     G. C. EMMERSON, Prince Run
The people of Prince Rupert all
realize the benefit of a payroll to a
growing town. At no place is this fact
demonstrated to better advantage than
in the town of Sealey about three miles
down the Skeena River from Hazelton.
There are the offices and pay station of
Foley, Welch and Stewart and there
within a mile of the town are over five
hundred men.
These things combined with the facts
that aSealey is the destributing point
to the Bulkley valley and the present
chief port on the Skeena make the town
an attractive one.
As well as a river port Sealey is on
the railroad and the Grand Trunk
Pacific have made it one of their stations.
This should make the reader realize
that Sealey is to become one of the
permanent railroad towns in the Skeena
and Bulkley valleys.
