ON THE STEWART RUN
I Company Purchase* New Steamer
Which ia Fitted With Refrigerator
Space Enough to Handle Two
Hundred   Tona   of   Perishables.
:.
Although the name of the new vessel has not been given out, advices
from Victoria bring the information
that a new steamer, now plying between Liverpool and Spanish ports in
the fruit trade, has been chartered by
the Balcom Steamship compnny, and
will go on the run between Victoria
and Stewart. The new steamer is fitted
with refrigerator space large enough
to handle 300 tons of freight, and can
be used to great advantage in handling
fresh meat and fruits between the two
cities.
At present the company is operating the John L. Card between Victoria and Seattle, and have entered negotiations to secure the Granier and
the .Selkirk. The company is using the
Pacific Coast company's wharf at Victoria, and is handling a great deal of
Sound trade at present.
Mayor Would Rather See Canadian
Than American   Instruments
Telephone instruments to the value
of $1,372 are required in the city to
meet the demands of prospective subscribers, and the city clerk at last night's
council meeting suggested that as there
was only one member of the Telephone
committee present the council might
deal with and so expediate the mattei
so that the instruments might be or
dered from San Francisco where they
are manufactured.
"Are these instruments not to be
had manufactured in Canada?" asked
the mayor. The clerk thought not,
though he believed the company supplying them intended to open a factory
in the Dominion. The cost of the instruments, he said, ran from $6.70
to $8.60.
Aid. Pattullo thought that the matter
should be dealt with in the usual way
by the telephone committee, and it
was accordingly so referred.
CITY POWER PLANT SITE
Ad.  Hilditch  Suggests  Vicinity   of
Hays Creek For It.
Some little friendly discussion took
place at last night's city council meeting
over the vexed question of the long delayed Electric Lighting P ant, when Aid.
Lynch referred to th* matter of the
suggested site for the city owned plant
in the vicinity of Seal Cove, stating that
he understood that the selection of a
site outside the city limits would involve extra cost of wiring and also loss
of voltage. He suggested that Mr.
Burns be asked to say if this were not
so, and Mr. Burns gave the council to
understand that to avoid the loss of
voltage over a long carry of current from
a far out power station, thicker wires
would be needed which would cost more.
Mr. Burns suggested that a site in the
neighborhood of McBride street or the
Market Place would be economical in
this respect for a city Electric Power
station.
Aid. Hildtich mentioned that in
conversation with Aid. Smith recently
that a site right on the bank of Hays
Creek would be a good one for the
Electric Light Plant. Property there,
though low priced now would be very
valuable some day. Aid. Lynch agreed
that that would be a better site than one
far out of the city, but wondered if the
property were not rather expensive.
"W6uld not the price of coal be
increased?" asked Aid. Barrow, but the
general opinion was that this would not
be so as coal could easily be carried by
scows up the creek.
Aid. Lynch then said he thought the
city should secure a site there without
delay provided the price of lots there
was not too high.
Aid. Barrow approved Aid. Hilditch's
uggestion regarding the secection of
he site.
F. B. Deacon   Removes
F. B. Deacon has moved into his new
[and spacious office premises on Sixth

which he  is  furnishing in  first class
manner.    Mr. Deacon's old office premises on the G. T. P. reserve are cleared
of their furnishings and fixtures, and

BITTER ATTACK
ON ROOSEVELT
JUST AS HE IS BEING HAILED AS
GREAT LEADER
Evening Post Say* This Roarer For
Political Virtue While In Public
Life Was Hand In Glove With the
Worst   Corruptionists.
(Special to the Optimist)
Kansas City, Sept. 1.���Roosevelt is
meeting with immense success in his
tour through the country. At every point
he is awaited by large and enthusiastic
crowds and his every utterance cheered.
Thirty thousand people gathered here
to hear him speak, and hailed him as the
great progressive" Republican leader.
That the Democrats no less than a
portion of the colonel's own party are
scared up by the furor he is creating,
was shown today by the fact that thou-
sandsjof copies of the New York Evening
Post had been purchased and were distributed among the crowd after the speaking. The Post, unusually a supporter
of progressive policies, in this issue flays
Roosevelt most unmercifully.    It says:
"Such whirling words as Theodore
Roosevelt utters are a curse to public
life. They arouse passion without
directing it. They give none a clear idea
of what the speaker means, except that
thought which inflames a crowd and
makes mischief.
"The champion of purity, this roarer
for political virtue, is the man who for
years, when he was in public life, was
hand in glove with the worst political
corruptionists of his day. Him it was
who toadied to Tom Piatt, who praised
Matt Quay, and paid court to Mark
Hanna.
"Under Roosevelt as president Senator Aldrich rose to the height of his
power. He was always on good terms
with Roosevelt. It was Roosevelt who
asked Harriman to come to the White
House sectetly, where he took his
money to buy votes secretly in New
York.
"He it was who afterwards wrote to
'My dear Sherman'���yes, the same
Sherman with whom he is fighting today���reviling capitalists, to whom he
had previously written 'you and I are
practical men.'
"If Roosevelt is such a great cincher
of crooks why did he not cinch them
when he was shaking hands with them?
Does he think that everyone has forgotten the $50,000 taken from the wid-
HOME RULE FOR
SCOTLAND NEXT
MOVEMENT  IS STEADILY GAINING IN STRENGTH
Nationalists Claim That Country
Is Only Legislated For As An
Aftersight.���Would Manage Own
Affairs In Her Own Way.
London, August 28.���The movement
in favor of home rule for Scotland with
regard to its purely local affairs is
steadily gaining strength. The Scottish National committee, which is composed of a number of the leading Scottish M. P. 's, has issued s striking manifesto, in which it says:
"The settlement of the constitutional question will offer an opportunity
for reorganizing parliamentary business on a basis of devolution. Ireland's claim to self-government is not
likely to be overlooked; that of Scotland is, in its ownjway, no less urgent.
"A policy of devolution for Scottish
affairs involves a break with the antiquated procedure of two centuries. This
procedure was imposed upon us at the
union, when Scotland was practically
delivered into the hands of bureaucracy.
"Scotland is frequently legislated for
as an afterthought. Clauses dealing
with her affairs are unexpectedly tacked
on to bills intended to deal with purely
English questions, Such Scottish legislation as in introduced is initiated by the
permanent officials of the different
boards, is prepared lu London, and
becomes a government bill before Scottish members have had a chance of
discussing their views before those responsible for its introduction. This has
been the fate of Scotland under all
governments. The problem before us
is to devise some system of representative control over Scottish affairs in
Scotland, a principle which, if applied
to the different parts of the United
Kingdom, would provide for a true
expression of its own affairs, leaving
the imperial parliament free to transact
the business of the Empire."
ows and orphansj^and added to the
Roosevelt presidential corruption fund?
Did he not take a big cheque from the
beef trust? He was glad to get it,
and now he is going to make the big
corporations come to time."
Vancouver Loses Again
Vancouver,   Sept.l.��� (Special)���The
league games played yesterday resulted
as follows:
Spokane three, Vancouver nil,
Tacoma one, Seattle nil.
TO START SURVEY
Colonel  Tracy * Here  for  the  Light
and Power Company
Colonel T. H. Tracy, civil engineer, of
Vancouver, ia in town in the interests of
the Prince Rupert Power and Light
Company, which has a permit for 3000
inches of water form Woodworth Lake.
He comes here to look over the situation
and to start surveys for the development
and sale of the power. He is accompanied by his son and is staying at the
Premier.
The Colonel finds many old friends
in Prince Rupert. He was for many
years city engineer of Vancouver and is
a large property owner there. He was
a colonel during the Riel rebellion and
also saw service during the Fenian raid.
EVIDENCE    CONFLICTS
But Judge Young Finds a Way of
Settling  the  Case
"One man swears one thing, and
another man swears exactly the opposite,
and then you expect a man who has never
seen anything at all of the matter in
dispute to rule as to what are the rights
and wrongs of the matter"said Judge
Young at the county court this morning
in connection with the case of John
E. Strange vs. Herbert Kerrigan for
the amount of a board account. "All
I can do" said the judge after hearing
the evidence "is to charge Strange with
two week's occupancy of the bulding
in question. It was clearly a benefit to
Strange to have the use of the building
in question at the time, and though this
is not actually charged for against him,
it seems to me the only way of arriving
at a settlement."

ABDUL HAMID
HAS ESCAPED
TAKEN TWELVE OF HIS HAREM
ALONG WITH HIM
Disappearance    Creates General Uneasiness   Among    Young    Turk
Party���Trouble   With   Greece   Is
Bobbing Up Because of Boycott.
(Special to the Optimist)
Constantinople, J3ep. 1.���The war
flame is again smouldering in Turkey,
where the Grecian minister has complained about the continued boycott
on Grecian goods. The bringing on of
this question has aroused all the old
antagonism that was at boiling point
just before the Turkish revolution and
the autonomy of Greece is likely to be
again disturbed as a consequence.
What adds to the general uneasiness
is the sudden disappearance of Abdul
Hamid, the deposed sulton, with twelve
of his harem, from the prison villa at
Salonika. This disappearance took place
during last night and so far no trace has
been obtained. Several plots for the former
sultan's escape had been unearthed
recently, and it was supposed that in
consequence he was being more strictly
guarded. It is probable several arrests
will be made in the course of the day,
although the Young Turk party, which
Is still in control of the government,
seems afraid to take definite action in
the matter.
HAY3 AT  SEATTLE
Members of  Party  Say. Growth  of
Prince Rupert is Remarkable
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Sep. 1.���The Hays party
from Prince Rupert and Stewart arrived here last night on the Prince George
and went on to Seattle. The boat had
been held up for five hours by fog. While
here the members of the party were
enthusiastic in regard to the country
they had visited and particularly so
as to Prince Rupert itself. They said th
growth of the city and seaport was in
every was remarkable and there as no
doubt of its great future.
Natural Gas Is Struck
Toronto, .Sep. 1.���(Special)���The Dominion Gas Company of Hamilton has
struck natural gas at Port Burwell
The well has a flow of three million
feet of gas per hour.
RUPERT CITY
DUE TODAY
HAS BEEN CHARTERED BY THE
GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC
Company's Present Boats Inadequate
For Amount of Freight Handled���
Chartered Until December Next
With   Option   of   Purchasing.
The Rupert City is coming back on
this run. She is due here today with
1,500 tons of coal and 400 tons of general
cargo. Part of the latter is one hundred
dump cars to be used by the railway
contractors.
The steamer has been chartered by
the Grand Trunk Pacific company to
be used on this run until December 15th, .
with the option of purchasing at the expiration of that period. The Grand Trunk
has found its two steamers, the Prince
George and the Prince Rupert, inadequate to handle the freight traffic between Vancouver and this port.
The Rupert City is a vessel of 3,000
tons capacity, owned by Watts &
Watts, Ltd., London, England. Her
agents are Dodwell & Company, and by
that company she was chartered to
McKenzie Bros., who have now sub-
chartered  her to the railway company   ,
GOING TO NEW WHARF
Inverkip   Has    Finished   Unloading
Cement   For   Contractors
Tbe freight steamer Inverkip has
finished unloading the twenty-six thousand barrels of cement for Foley, Welch
and Stewart and today is to move to the

the rest of her cargo of four thousand
barrels. Captain Hand hopes to leave

TO RAISE THE MAY
Tug William Jolliffe Has   Been Sent
to Sentinel Island
Victoria, Sep. 1.���Tug Willaim Jolliffe
has left for Sentinel Island to aid in pulling the Princess May from the rocks. The
Santa Cruz had failed to get her off,
more power being required. There waa
no other tug on the coast so suitable
as the William Jolliffe znd permission
was obtained from the department at
Washington for her to go. This was
necessary as the Princess May is ashore
in American territory.

Don't tell me now, my Willie boy, of
dazzling things you mean to do; for
threats of that sort but annoy a sage
whose years are not a few. I've noticed, in
the passing years that those who seek the
higher ways get down and work like
brindle steers, and leave the talking graft
for jays. I do not care a red for schemes,
unless you work and watch and weep;
I do not give a whoop for dreams, unless
you have them in your sleep. You

your plans to you seem goodjbut I will

whose safety scythe is cutting grass. You
Willie boys are scheming how to keep

FEMALE HELP WANTED
CANNED PARDNER'S BODY
Bringing Off the Funeral of a Klondike Prospector In the Early
Days of Dawson's History.
Ten years ago, when I was camped a mile below what is now Dawson
City, when the arctic summer, with
its monotonous daylight, was about
drawing to a close, a terrific thunderstorm
came along one night; the wind blew
a hurricane, shifted all around the compass many times, lashed the river into
foam, and snipped off the trees round
the camp like carrots. The lightning
was close to us and very vivid; the thunder roared and re-echoed again and
again far away in the mountains.
A few days after these fireworks I
was visited one evening by a huge
giant, a typical prospector, and as
fine a specimen of a mah as you could
hope to come across in an ordinary
lifetime.
Handsome of face, bright-eyed, tall,
straight-limbed, broad in chest, spare
in flank, this magnificent human creature
came crashing through the underbrush
like a moose. After the manner of his
kind he nodded at me, sat down, then
slowly filled his pipe and proceeded to
unburden himself of his tale of woe.
"Pardner," said he, "you ain't afraid
of ghosts, be yer?" As it was considered infra dig in that country to
be afraid of anything, I assured him
that I was a proud possessor of unlimited courage, and had more nerve
than I could conveniently pack.
"Well, pardner, it's like this, I've
brought a dead man down here to
stay with yer awhile; I've got him
in a boat; I've tied him up down under them bushes, and if yer don't
mind I'll leave him there for a bit." I
assured him that any friend of his
was most welcome, dead or alive, but
ventured to suggest that as the weather
was still warm perhaps a funeral would
be appropriate. "Pardner, yer needn't
be the least mite skeered. John will
keep all right���why, he's guaranteed for
thirty days." Then came the particulars
of the tragedy:
It appeared the deceased and my
newly-found friend were, as he remarked, "sort of side pardners," and
were prospecting away up in the Eldorado .  .
On the night of the big storm they
were sleeping together under a sort
of make-shift "lean to," when a tree
was blown down, instantly killing
the young man by smashing in his
skull.
There was no help nearby, and after cutting away the tree my giant
discovered that his little "side pardner" had done with prospecting in
this world forever.
Taking him on his back, as he innocently observed (he always referred to the departed as "him") he actually
packed the body 25 miles down to Dawson
"I had him in the company's warehouse," he said simply, "till yesterday, but the captain told me I had to
take him away, as the authorites won't
allow him to stop in town."
I again suggested a funeral, when
the giant looked serious, and explained his reason for delaying the final
operation.
It seemed that the dead man had
a brother who was prospecting away
up some distant creek, and he had
been sent for, as they thought it the
proper thing for him to officiate aa
chief mourner, so they decided to
keep he late lamented above ground
till the arrival of the brother, besides
which my friend was anxious to prove
there was no foul play.
With these ideas, a number of old
"sour dough" miners, with the aid
of a retired tinsmith and many tomato cans, had actually managed to
can him in a sort of home made casket, so that he would keep.
And there he lay in the bottom of
the boat, moored to the bank, a bright
shining object, a quiet, well behaved,
and,  at present,  inoffensive neighbor.
"Good night, pardner,"*Jsaid my
visitor, and then looking over his
shoulder before he slowly disappeared into the bush, "keep an eye on
him, will yer?" "Yer see, some of
the boys might take a notion to play
a 'josh' on me and come and cut the
line and let him go down the stream."
Nothing happened for the next few
days, and the faithful giant used to
come down every morning and take
a look at his armor-plated friend,
till at last he came one day, arrayed
in all the trappings of woe, including a collar and an immense black
necktie. He proudly announced that
the brother had arrived, and the funeral was ordered for two o'clock that
afternoon. The regular o'.d miner dearly
loves a funeral. To him it is an ��vent
not to be neglected.
The sad event is announced by crude
notices posted on trees in conspicuous
places, and the solemnity of the occasion
is highly appreciated and most impressive.
The virtues of the deceased are
generally discussed in low tones, and
his many good qualities often exaggerated.
The day of the funeral I was formally invited to be present at the
obsequies, but was obliged to decline.
The giant prospector, who by this
time I had christened "Gabriel Cqn-
roy," then suggested that I should
send a couple of my men in canoes
to follow the boat containing the canned
gentleman, remarking quite pathetically, "I think, pardner, that will
make a kind of a nice little percession���
like, don't you think?"
The ceremony came off exactly as
planned, and was a great success. I
saw Gabriel once or twice afterwards
when he thanked me J.most;^ profusely
for my share in the proceedings, which
consisted principally in not being scared
of ghosts, and^taking care of "him."

Hotel Roof Forma Divide
Situated exactly at the highest point
of the divide of the Rocky Mountains,
on the Crow's Nest division of th
Canadian Pacific railway, in British
Columbia, the Summit hotel, of which
"Andy" Goode, a famous hunter and
frontierman, is proprietor, claims a
unique distinction.. When it rains in
the mountains, says the Wide World
Magazine, the water which falls on
the eastern slope of the Summit hotel
roof trickles away to join a tiny rivulet, which in due process of time mingles
its waters with the broad Atlantic. The
water falling just beyond the ridgepole,
on the other side of the roof, flows
westerly, and ultimately into the Pacific.
ARCTIC   EXPLORATION
Amundien'a   Veaael   ia   Provisioned
For No Leas Than Seven Years
Captain Roald Amundsen, the discoverer of the magnetic pole, is sure in
advance of making at least one "record"
in his expedition to the North Pole,
on which he started some weeks ago.
He will be cut off from connection with
the rest of the world longer than any
predecessor in Arctic exploration. Not
until the summer of 1915 or 1916 does
he expect to reach Eastern Greenland.
His vessel is provisioned for no less than
seven years It is the same Fram that
served Nansen and Sverdrup.
The plan to be followed is ihe same
as that for which the Canadian explorer, Captain Bernier, tried in vain
for years to raise funds���the .plan,
namely, of drifting slowly along with
the ice pack. Now that the element of
"farthest North" has been eliminated
by the success of Peary in reaching the
Pole, the scientific aspects of a polar
trip stand 8 out "Jfmore conspicuously.
Amundsen'.;; intends to pay particular
attention to��the study, of the Polar Sea.
especially its bottom, with the aid of
the latest contrivances for sounding, in
which great progress has been made
since Nansen's day. Submarine currents also will be studied.
Why Not Prince Rupert
Rear-Admiral Kingsmill is returning to Canada. He has been in England
looking after the Canadian navy, which
Messrs. Bourassa and Monk have been
hammering to smithereens down in
Quebec. He will report that the Niobe���
not all tears, however���will be despatched
in September and be put into commission in the Gulf of St. Lawrence as
a training station. The Rainbow also
has been renovated and will swing out
this month via the Suez Canal for
Esquimalt on a fisheries protection
assignment. Then there are four cruisers
and sue destroyers to build���in Canada.
Admiral Kingsmill is interested in having
work begun quickly. Probabilities are
in favour of shipbuilding plants and
dry docks at Montreal, Quebec and
Halifax���just as soon as the Government
are able to decide the ticklish problem
of which is entitled to how much.

brindle steers, and leave the talking graft
for jays. I do not care a red for schemes,
unless you work and watch and weep;
I do not give a whoop for dreams, unless

whose safety scythe is cutting grass. You
Willie boys are scheming how to keep

Prince Rupert Steam Laundry
Filth Avenue end Fulton Street.
Ten years ago, when I was camped a mile below what is now Dawson
City, when the arctic summer, with
its monotonous daylight, was about
drawing to a close, a terrific thunderstorm
came along one night; the wind blew
a hurricane, shifted all around the compass many times, lashed the river into
foam, and snipped off the trees round
the camp like carrots. The lightning
was close to us and very vivid; the thunder roared and re-echoed again and
again far away in the mountains.
A few days after these fireworks I
was visited one evening by a huge
giant, a typical prospector, and as
fine a specimen of a mah as you could
hope to come across in an ordinary
lifetime.
Handsome of face, bright-eyed, tall,
straight-limbed, broad in chest, spare
in flank, this magnificent human creature
came crashing through the underbrush
like a moose. After the manner of his
kind he nodded at me, sat down, then
slowly filled his pipe and proceeded to
unburden himself of his tale of woe.
"Pardner," said he, "you ain't afraid
of ghosts, be yer?" As it was considered infra dig in that country to
be afraid of anything, I assured him
that I was a proud possessor of unlimited courage, and had more nerve
than I could conveniently pack.
"Well, pardner, it's like this, I've
brought a dead man down here to
stay with yer awhile; I've got him
in a boat; I've tied him up down under them bushes, and if yer don't
mind I'll leave him there for a bit." I
assured him that any friend of his
was most welcome, dead or alive, but
ventured to suggest that as the weather
was still warm perhaps a funeral would
be appropriate. "Pardner, yer needn't
be the least mite skeered. John will
keep all right���why, he's guaranteed for
thirty days." Then came the particulars
of the tragedy:
It appeared the deceased and my
newly-found friend were, as he remarked, "sort of side pardners," and
were prospecting away up in the Eldorado . .
On the night of the big storm they
were sleeping together under a sort
of make-shift "lean to," when a tree
was blown down, instantly killing
the young man by smashing in his
skull.
There was no help nearby, and after cutting away the tree my giant
discovered that his little "side pardner" had done with prospecting in
this world forever.
Taking him on his back, as he innocently observed (he always referred to the departed as "him") he actually
packed the body 25 miles down to Dawson
"I had him in the company's warehouse," he said simply, "till yesterday, but the captain told me I had to
take him away, as the authorites won't
allow him to stop in town."
I again suggested a funeral, when
the giant looked serious, and explained his reason for delaying the final
operation.
It seemed that the dead man had
a brother who was prospecting away
up some distant creek, and he had
been sent for, as they thought it the
proper thing for him to officiate as
chief mourner, so they decided to
keep he late lamented above ground
till the arrival of the brother, besides
which my friend was anxious to prove
there was no foul play.
With these ideas, a number of old
"sour dough" miners, with the aid
of a retired tinsmith and many tomato cans, had actually managed to
can him in a sort of home made casket, so that he would keep.
And there he lay in the bottom of
the boat, moored to the bank, a bright
shining object, a quiet, well behaved,
and,  at  present,  inoffensive  neighbor.
"Good night, pardner," J said my
viator, and then looking over his
shoulder before he slowly disappeared into the bush, "keep an eye on
him, will yer?" "Yer see, some of
the boys might take a notion to play
a 'josh' on me and come and cut the
line and let him go down the stream."
Nothing happened for the next few
days, and the faithful giant used to
come down every morning and take
a look at his armor-plated friend,
till at last he came one day, arrayed
in all the trappings of woe, including a collar and an immense black
necktie. He proudly announced that
the brother had arrived, and the funeral was ordered for two o'clock that
afternoon. The regular od miner dearly
loves a funeral. To him it is an event
not to be neglected.
The sad event is announced by crude
notices posted on trees in conspicuous
places, and the solemnity of the occasion
is highly appreciated and most impressive.
The virtues of the deceased are
generally discussed in low tones, and
his many good qualities often exaggerated.
The day of the funeral I was formally invited to be present at the
obsequies, but was obliged to decline.
The giant prospector, who by this
time I had christened "Gabriel Con-
roy," then suggested that I should
send a couple of my men in canoes
to follow the boat containing the canned
gentleman, remarking quite pathetically, "I think, pardner, that will
make a kind of a nice little percession���
like, don't you think?"
The ceremony came off exactly as
planned, and was a great success. I
saw Gabriel once or twice afterwards
when he thanked me ^.most"^ profusely
for my share in the proceedings, which
consisted principally in not being scared
of ghosts, andUaking care of "him."

Hotel Roof Forms Divide
Situated exactly at the highest point
of the divide of the Rocky Mountains,
on the Crow's Nest division of th
Canadian Pacific railway, in British
Columbia, the Summit hotel, of which
"Andy" Goode, a famous hunter and
frontierman, is proprietor, claims a
unique distinction.. When it rains in
the mountains, says the Wide World
Magazine, the water which falls on
the eastern slope of the Summit hotel
roof trickles away to join a tiny rivulet, which in due process of time mingles
its waters with the broad Atlantic. The
water falling just beyond the ridgepole,
on the other side of the roof, flows
westerly, and ultimately into the Pacific.
ARCTIC   EXPLORATION
Amundsen's   Vessel   is   Provisioned
For No Leas Than Seven Years
Captain Roald Amundsen, the discoverer of the magnetic pole, is sure in
advance of making at least one "record"
in his expedition to the North Pole,
on which he started some weeks ago.
He will be cut off from connection with
the rest of the world longer than any
predecessor in Arctic exploration. Not
until the summer of 1916 or 1916 does
he expect to reach Eastern Greenland.
His vessel is provisioned for no less than
seven years It is the same Fram that
served Nansen and Sverdrup.
The plan to be followed is ihe same
as that for which the Canadian explorer, Captain Bernier, tried in vain
for years to raise funds���the plan,
namely, of drifting slowly along with
the ice pack. Now that the element of
"farthest North" has been eliminated
by the success of Peary in reaching the
Pole, the scientific aspects of a polar
trip stand V'out Tmore conspicuously.
Amundsen'!; intends to pay particular
attention to^the study, of the Polar Sea.
especially its bottom, with the aid of
the latest contrivances for sounding, in
which great progress has been made
since Nansen's day. Submarine currents also will be studied.
Why Not Prince Rupert
Rear-Admiral Kingsmill is returning to Canada. He has been in England
looking after the Canadian navy, which
Messrs. Bourassa and Monk have been
hammering to smithereens down in
Quebec. He will report that the Niobe���
not all tears, however���will be despatched
in September and be put into commission in the Gulf of St. Lawrence as
a training station. The Rainbow also
has been renovated and will swing out
this month via the Suez Canal for
Esquimalt on a fisheries protection
assignment. Then there are four cruisers
and six destroyers to build���in Canada.
Admiral Kingsmill is interested in having
work begun quickly. Probabilities are
in favour of shipbuilding plants and
dry docks at Montreal, Quebec and
Halifax���just as soon as the Government
are able to decide the ticklish problem
of which is entitled to how much.

THE TWO PREMIERS
Instead of gnashing his teeth over the popu larity that Sir Wilfrid Laurier is
winning in the West. Premier Richard McBride, of British Columbia, resolved to
be happy and get into the procession. The thing that it is nrcessary for Conservatives
to realize is that although Sir Wilfrid Laurier is not making partisan speeches, he
is strengthening himself by his personal influence, and by identifying himself with
the Western spirit and with national sentiment. The qualities that make him the
favorite son of the West���if the word son may be used to describe a somewhat
fatherly attitude. Now, there is in this situation some material for exasperation
among our Conservative friends. But what is the use of being exasperated when you
cannot turn your exasperation into fighting power? Premier McBride takes the
wiser course. He will be non-partisan, too. He extracts from the older Premier
this remarkable tribute: "He has furnished a striking illustration of the ametitiesy
of public life.as understood in the cradle of party politics in the old land. I shall carry
home and ever retain happy memories of this unprecedented and happiest experience
of a long public life."
But partyism aside, this is a remarkable meeting: the veteran Premier and the
young one; the east and the west; the French-Canadian and the man who represents
perhaps the most distinctly English of all the Provinces of Canada; the Province
that is the gateway to the Orient. Quebec is rich in the memories of the past. British
Columbia, while it has its history too, looks forward to a future in which it will vie
with Ontario and Quebec and the Prairie Provinces for the leadership of the Dominion
It is an occasion to lure away the fiercest partisan from his partisanship, to consider
the opportunity and the destiny of the country that is the common heritage of all
Canadians, and the tremendous responsibilities which that opportunity involves.

PRINCE   RUPERT
OF
Enterprise of Allan Steamship Company.���To Depict Life and Conditions of Seaport and Surrounding Pointa For British Public.
The bustling life of the new city of
Prince Rupert was pictured yesterday
for the entertainment and information
of the people of the old country and with
the hope of inducing them to take tours
to this great Dominion seaport. The
pictures are being made by Alfred G.
Gosden, of London, England, who is
sent out by the Allan Steamship company,
the purpose being to show the films extensively and thus acquaint the people
of the British islands with actual conditions here. Accompanying Mr. Gosden
is Professor J. Milton State, of Liverpool, who is engaged to lecture with the
exhibition of the pictures.
The fact that such an extensive enterprise should have been undertaken shows
the deep interest taken in the financial
circles of Great Britain. It also shows
the push and energy of the Allan line
in looking out for tourist travel in this
direction even in advance of any steps
taken by the transcontinental railway
company. Yet the latter is by no means
behind, bu its enterprise is to provide
. literature, well illustrated, for such
purposes. There will arrive here in a
few days a large party of artists, photographers and writers who will have made
the long trip along the surveyed line
from Edmonton, so this moving picture
enterprise is but another form of advertising Prince Rupert to the world
at large.
The Allan kinetescope party is to
pourtray a trip from the Allan line docks
at Montreal to the wharves at Prince
Rupert, incidentally taking in all the
points of interest en route and showing
the various industries in which the people
are occupied, thus combining entertainment with reliable information of every
kind pertaining to the country traversed.
Yesterday the party took views of
the principal streets and buildings,
the wharves and so on. This part of
the work   was to have been completed
today but the morning was not sufficiently
bright for such work and it was postponed.
Therefore, a trip was made to Georgetown in Mr. Peck's launch, the Mc-
Culloch, Mr. Peck regretting that the
gentlemen will not be able to see the
large sawmills there in operation as
much as the people of Prince Rupert
must regret that the pictures here were
not taken while the triumphal arches
and decorations were up. But it is the
aim to take such pictures under ordinary conditions. Views will also be
made of the most beautiful points along
the Skeena River and of the islands
I djacent to this port.
PERSONAL
J71ius Levy has returned from a
month's visit to Los Angeles and other
southern cities. His health is much improved and his many friends are glad
to see him back again. He is also glad
to get back as the weather in the south
in almost unbearably hot. While in Los
Angeles Mr. Levy gave the Express of
that city a report from Prince Rupert
that will help some in boosting this town.

Judgment Given in Case of Peter

To carry on and to do any other 1 ..
things which usually are and can be convenient!

 w A can be conveniently

business with this Company is authorized to
carry on, or possessed of property suitable for the
fiurposes of this Compsny, and as consideration
or the same to psy cash or to Issue sny shares,
Peter Krivokapich appeared this morning in the County Court before Judge
Young to explain why he had not paid
various sums owed by him to certain of
his fellow countrymen. In the witness
box he protested fervently his intention
to pay, but alas! he had not the wherewithal. He explained to the satisfaction
of the Judge, however, that he had paid
$400 towards an account of $448.85
against him by Geo. Raicheneich, and
had been allowed an extension of the
two months in which to pay the balance,
the matter being in the hands of Messrs.
Carss & Bennett. Another sum of
$108.10 he owed to Marks Vackovitch,
and Judge Young held this over until
next court. A third amount, $37.85,
Peter owed to R. Lahwrich, and this
sum Judge Young ordered him to find
within ten days.
"Guess I got to go out and rustle for
it," said Peter, and Judge Young
recommended him to do so.
The money was owed by Krivokapitch
over contract work done by him, the
men suing having worked for him.
Krivokapich had used the cash paid him
for the contract to square other debts,
and cash owed him by others failed to
come in though he had gone 100 miles
up river, as he said, "to rustle for it."
He owned claims on the American side,
but hearing that he was a married amn,
Judge Young was unwilling to force him
to realize on his property immediately.
"You are strong and able to work for
this money," said the Judge. 'These
other men to whom you owe it have
worked for it and they ought to get it."
Peter hurried out of court to begin
"rustling" right away he said.
Messrs. Williams & Manson acted for
the pursuers.
Connora Will Serve Six Months
Robert Connors who was charged with
having fired with intent to kill,at Victor
Larsen of the North Pacific Cannery last
Sunday, has been sentenced to Six
months' imprisonment. Instead of putting
in the time at New Westminster it is
expected that Connors will serve his
sentence in Prince Rupert, the Magistrate
having taken into consideration the
prisoner's age and condition at the time
the offence was committed. THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMISE

From Annual Resume of Conditions
Made By Lord Strathcona
The depression in trade which was
experienced throughout the world in
1908 has now lifted, and the figures
relating to the trade between Canada
and Great Britain, which are given
below, show that large increases have
taken place both in imports from Canada
and in exports to the Dominion. The
total foreign and Colonial trade, of
the United Kingdom in the calendar
year 1909 was 1,003,119,961 pounds
sterling as compared with 970,056,311
pounds sterling in 1908, an increase of
of 33,062,650 pounds sterling. The total
trade with Canada in the year 1909 was
29 424,609 pounds sterling as against
26,538,206 pounds sterling in 1908, an
increase  of  2,886,403   pounds  sterling.
The total exports from the United
Kingdom to Canada in 1909 were 8,414,-
634 pounds sterling, compared with
6,288,447 pounds sterling in 1908, a
very satisfactory increase of 2,126,187
pounds sterling, or about 33.98 per cent.
The imports from Canada in the same
periods were 21,009,975 pounds sterling
in 1909 and 20,249,759 pounds sterling
in 1908, thus showing an increase of
760,216  pounds sterling.
Aeroplane   Versua   Cavalry
The French military recently arranged a test to discover what effect would
be produced on a troop of cavalry by
the sudden apparition of an aeroplane
immediately overhead. The horses
were all but stampeded by the sight of
the huge birdlike object and the frightful noise of the motor. Since then regular drills are had, designed to accustom horses to the aeroplane.
Carnegie on Prodigality
Andrew Carnegie, at one of his famous
dinners in New York, talked about the
prodigal and ostentatious expenditure
of a certain type of New York millionaire.
"He takes a Velasquez," said Mr. Carnegie, "and cuts it into three strips so
that it will go on a screen. Paul Bourget
told the world about that. And I heard
the other day, another thing about him.
"A gentleman was being shown over
the $3,000,000 palace of one of these
millionaires. The gentleman stopped
before an enormous mirror and said:
'"What a large and perfect glass!
Pity it's scratched!'
'"It is rather a pity,' said the millionaire carelessly, and,' turning to his
major-domo, he said: "Don't let the
children have any more diamonds ro
play with, Maurice.'"���From the Wash:

The Florence Russell Case
The case of Florence Russell charged
with having been drunk and disorderly
came up before Magistrate Carss this
morning, and was tried. Mr. Manson
appeared for the Crown and Mr. Patmore
for the accused. The evidence was very
conflicting, and Magistrate Carss decided
to dismiss the case. A further charge
against accused of having run a disreputable resort was proceeded with.
The woman Russell counter charged
against police Sergt. Mehan, that unnecessary violence was used in her arrest,
and Mr. Patmore pointed out that she
was insufficiently clad when brought
by night from Comox avenue to the
Police Station. The thin silk kimono
which was the sole garment worn by
the woman according to her own statement was produced by her in court.
The matter, Mr. Manson said, is one
for the Police Commissioners to investigate.

THE TWO PREMIERS
Instead of gnashing his teeth over the popu larity that Sir Wilfrid Laurier is
winning in the West. Premier Richard McBride, of British Columbia, resolved to
be happy and get into the procession. The thing that it is necessary for Conservatives
to realize is that although Sir Wilfrid Laurier is not making partisan speeches, he
is strengthening himself by his personal influence, and by identifying himself with
the Western spirit and with national sentiment. The qualities that make him the
favorite son of the West���if the word son may be used to describe a somewhat
fatherly attitude. Now, there is in this situation some material for exasperation
among our Conservative friends. But what is the use of being exasperated when you
cannot turn your exasperation into fighting power? Premier McBride takes the
wiser course. He will be non-partisan, too. He extracts from the older Premier
this remarkable tribute: "He has furnished a striking illustration of the ametitiesy
of public life.as understood in the cradle of party politics in the old land. I shall carry
home and ever retain happy memories of this unprecedented and happiest experience
of a long public life."
But partyism aside, this is a remarkable meeting: the veteran Premier and the
young one; the east and the west; the French-Canadian and the man who represents
perhaps the most distinctly English of all the Provinces of Canada; the Province
that is the gateway to the Orient. Quebec is rich in the memories of the past. British
Columbia, while it has its history too, looks forward to a future in which it will vie
with Ontario and Quebec and the Prairie Provinces for the leadership of the Dominion
It is an occasion to lure away the fiercest partisan from his partisanship, to consider
the opportunity and the destiny of the country that is the common heritage of all
Canadians, and the tremendous responsibilities which that opportunity involves.

MAKING MOVING PICTURES
PRINCE   RUPERT
OF
Enterprise of Allan Steamship Company.���To Depict Life and Conditions of Seaport and Surrounding Pointa For Britiah Public.
The bustling life of the new city of
Prince Rupert was pictured yesterday
for the entertainment and information
of the people of the old country and with
the hope of inducing them to take tours
to this great Dominion seaport. The
pictures are being made by Alfred G.
Gosden, of London, England, who is
sent out by the Allan Steamship company,
the purpose being to show the films extensively and thus acquaint the people
of the British islands with actual conditions here. Accompanying Mr. Gosden
is Professor J. Milton State, of Liverpool, who is engaged to lecture with the
exhibition of the pictures.
The fact that such an extensive enterprise should have been undertaken shows
the deep interest taken in the financial
circles of Great Britain. It also shows
the push and energy of the Allan line
in looking out for tourist travel in this
direction even in advance of any steps
taken by the transcontinental railway
company. Yet the latter is by no means
behind, bu its enterprise is to provide
. literature, well illustrated, for such
purposes. There will arrive here in a
few days a large party of artists, photographers and writers who will have made
the long trip along the surveyed line
from Edmonton, so this moving picture
enterprise is but another form of advertising Prince Rupert to the world
at large.
The Allan kinetescope party is to
pourtray a trip from the Allan line docks
at Montreal to the wharves at Prince
Rupert, incidentally taking in all the
points of interest en route and showing
the various industries in which the people
are occupied, thus combining entertainment with reliable information of every
kind pertaining to the country traversed.
Yesterday the party took views of
the principal streets and buildings,
the wharves and so on. This part of
the work   was to have been completed
today but the morning was not sufficiently
bright for such work and it was postponed.
Therefore, a trip was made to Georgetown in Mr. Peck's launch, the Mc-
Culloch, Mr. Peck regretting that the
gentlemen will not be able to see the
large sawmills there in operation as
much as the people of Prince Rupert
must regret that the pictures here were
not taken while the triumphal arches
and decorations were up. But it is the
aim to take such pictures under ordinary conditions. Views will also be
made of the most beautiful points along
the Skeena River and of the islands
i djacent to this port.
PERSONAL
J71ius Levy has returned from a
month's visit to Los Angeles and other
southern cities. His health is much improved and his many friends are glad
to see him back again. He is also glad
to get back as the weather in the south
in almost unbearably hot. While in Los
Angeles Mr. Levy gave the Express of
that city a report from Prince Rupert
that will help some in boosting this town.

Peter Krivokapich appeared this morning in the County Court before Judge
Young to explain why he had not paid
various sums owed by him to certain of
his fellow countrymen. In the witness
box he protested fervently his intention
to pay, but alas! he had not the wherewithal. He explained to the satisfaction
of the Judge, however, that he had paid
$400 towards an account of $448.85
against him by Geo. Raicheneich, and
had been allowed an extension of the
two months in which to pay the balance,
the matter being in the hands of Messrs.
Carss & Bennett. Another sum of
$108.10 he owed to Marks Vackovitch,
and Judge Young held this over until
next court. A third amount, $37.85,
Peter owed to R. Lahwrich, and this
sum Judge Young ordered him to find
within ten days.
"Guess I got to go out and rustle for
it," said Peter, and Judge Young
recommended him to do so.
The money was owed by Krivokapitch
over contract work done by him, the
men suing having worked for him.
Krivokapich had used the cash paid him
for the contract to square other debts,
and cash owed him by others failed to
come in though he had gone 100 miles
up river, as he said, "to rustle for it."
He owned claims on the American side,
but hearing that he was a married amn,
Judge Young was unwilling to force him
to realize on his property immediately.
"You are strong and able to work for
this money," said the Judge. 'These
other men to whom you owe it have
worked for it and they ought to get it."
Peter hurried out of court to begin
"rustling" right away he said.
Messrs. Williams & Manson acted for
the pursuers.
Connors Will Serve Six Months
Robert Connors who was charged with
having fired with intent to kill.at Victor
Larsen of the North Pacific Cannery last
Sunday, has been sentenced to Six
months' imprisonment. Instead of putting
in the time at New Westminster it is
expected that Connors will sei've his
sentence in Prince Rupert, the Magistrate
having taken into consideration the
prisoner's age and condition at the time
the offence was committed. THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   U P T I M I S���T

1908 has now lifted, and the figures
relating to the trade between Canada
and Great Britain, which are given
below, show that large increases have
taken place both in imports from Canada
and in exports to the Dominion. The
total foreign and Colonial trade, of
the United Kingdom in the calendar
year 1909 was 1,003,119,961 pounds
sterling as compared with 970,056,311
pounds sterling in 1908, an increase of
of 33,062,650 pounds sterling. The total
trade with Canada in the year 1909 was
29 424,609 pounds sterling as against
26,538,206 pounds sterling in 1908, an
increase  of  2,886,403  pounds  sterling.
The total exports from the United
Kingdom to Canada in 1909 were 8,414,-
634 pounds sterling, compared with
6,288,447 pounds sterling in 1908, a
very satisfactory increase of 2,126,187
pounds sterling, or about 33.98 per cent.
The imports from Canada in the same
periods were 21,009,975 pounds sterling
in 1909 and 20,249,759 pounds sterling
in 1908, thus showing an increase of
760,216 pounds sterling.
Aeroplane   Versus   Cavalry
The French military recently arranged a test to discover what effect would
be produced on a troop of cavalry by
the sudden apparition of an aeroplane
immediately overhead. The horses
were all but stampeded by the sight of
the huge birdlike object and the frightful noise of the motor. Since then regular drills are had, designed to accustom horses to the aeroplane.
Carnegie on Prodigality
Andrew Carnegie, at one of his famous
dinners in New York, talked about the
prodigal and ostentatious expenditure
of a certain type of New York millionaire.
"He takes a Velasquez," said Mr. Carnegie, "and cuts it into three strips so
that it will go on a screen. Paul Bourget
told the world about that. And I heard
the other day, another thing about him
"A gentleman was being shown over
the $3,000,000 palace of one of these
millionaires. The gentleman stopped
before an enormous mirror and said:
"'What a large and perfect glass!
Pity it's scratched!'
"Tt is rather a pity,' said the millionaire carelessly, and, turning to his
major-domo, he said: "Don't let the
children have any more diamonds ro
play with, Maurice.'"���From the Washington Star.

The Florence Ruaaell Case
The case of Florence Russell charged
with having been drunk and disorderly
came up before Magistrate Cares this
morning, and was tried. Mr. Manson
appeared for the Crown and Mr. Patmore
for the accused. The evidence was very
conflicting, and Magistrate Cares decided
to dismiss the case. A further charge
against accused of having run a disreputable resort was proceeded with
The woman Russell counter charged
against police Sergt. Mehan, that unnecessary violence was used in her arrest,
and Mr. Patmore pointed out that she
was insufficiently clad when brought
by night from Comox avenue to the
Police Station. The thin silk kimono
which was the sole garment worn by
the woman according to her own statement was produced by her in court
The matter, Mr. Manson said, is one
for the Police Commissioners to investigate.

No half-baked measures go in the
Police Court, says the Vancouver Province. If you have a desire to qualify
in the drunk class, then you've got to
be drunk, but if you are drunk you get
all that's coming to you. It's just, the
same with a stowaway. To be a real
stowaway in the eyes of the law, you've
got to crawl down into the darkness
of the No. 2 port coal bunker, or some
other equally inaccessible place, where
it can be proved against you that you
secreted yourself. If you don't secrete
you're not a stowaway; anyway, no
real, self-respecting stowaway would
think of travelling in the saloon.

Camosun, and he didn't pay any fare
past Prince Rupert. According to the
advices brought to light in the Police
Court yesterday, Norris had plenty of
money to pay his way when he boarded
the Union Company's steamer with a
ticket from the near-metropolis on the
Portland Canal to the near-railway
terminus at the mouth of the Skeena
River.
The bar on the Camosun, however,
had its attractions for George, and instead of a ticket to this thriving village
he bought sundry and frequent allowances of booze, the result being a
shortage of funds at Prince Rupert
with which to purchase transportation to this point. As a consequence
Norris was told to leave the craft at
Digby Island, but George didn't do
as he was told, and when the good ship
Camosun warped out into the stream
on her way south it was discovered that
he was, like the poor, right on the. job
It was too late to do anything with the
carefree traveller, so he was told what
would happen when he got to Vancouver, and it was let go at that, but
the things expected by the ship's officers did not happen when Vancouver ultimately was reached. The first
part of their programme was carried
out to a nicety, for George was arrested
and charged with having stowed away
on the Camosun, but when it came to
proving the case in court that was a
different matter.
His worship, donning the spectacles
of the law, thought the matter over
till this morning, but, he could not
see how Norris was a stowaway when
he did not stow away. He had traveled south Uke any other passenger,
avoiding coal bunkers, dark holds and
the like, and had, in no way attempt]
ed to give the impression that he was
a stowaway. Therefore it was explosion for the stowaway theory. The
ship's officers had a perfect right to
eject from the boat any passenger
who couldn't pay his fare, and that
was the only redress they had.
At any rate the court could not see
any way of convicting the alleged
stowaway, and he was told to go away.

CITY   GAS   SUPPLY
Tsimpsean Co.,Through Mr. Patmore
Request Council's Approval.
The Electric Lighting question was
only briefly touched upon at last night's
city council meeting, the principal
business before the council being the
consideration in committee and passing
of by-laws.
The following letter regarding the
supplying of gas to the city by the T-
simpeean Light and Power Co.. was
read by the city clerk. ^
To the Mayor and Council onthe City
of Prince Rupert.
Re Tsimpsean Light and Power Co.
Dear Sirs,���On behalf of the Tsimpsean
Light and Power company I beg to
submit herewith for your approval plans
of tbe proposed location of the mains
for conveying the gas from the proposed
gas works of the Tsimpsean Light and
Power company in Prince Rupert, to
consumers. If you have any preference
of the parts of the streets in which it
is proposed to lay these mains I would
like to have from you a statement of
such preference so that they may be
laid according to your desire. Kindly
take this matter up and without delay,
and notify me either that plans submitted are satisfactory to your body,
or your preference with regard to location of these mains and pipes so that
we may proceed at once with the undertaking.
I might say on behalf of this company
that the proper application under their
charter was made to the chief commissioner of Public Works for the province before this city was incorporated, seeking
for permission to proceed with the
undertaking, and as to the approval of
the laying of the gas mains in the streets,
znd that the city commissioner with-held
the consent required. We have on fyle
this  written   refusal.      You  will  con
sequently understand that this company
has done everything in its power as
required by its charter. The size of
the mains we propose to lay are six
inch in diameter, high pressure weldled
Mannesman pipes.
Yours   truly,
L. W. PATMORE
Mr. Brutinel the Tsimpsean Light and
Power company's engineer was present
when this letter was read. The letter
was referred to the Streets, Works and
Property committee for report on the
motion of Aid. Barrow seconded by
Aid. Mclntyre. Mr. Brutinel then withdrew from the city hall, and the council
proceeded to other business.
The plan of the city marked to show
the position of the proposed gas mains
and enclosed with Mr. Patmore's letter
shows that the mains are intended to
run through all the principal avenues
of the city so as to distribute the gas
to   every   section   thoroughly.

An Englishman's Word in Chile
"There is a phase in Chile, 'Pallabra
des Engles,' which means 'an Englishman's word,' and when two Chilians
complete a bargain and wish to make
it absolutely decisive they use this
phase. No one in Chile ever uses this
expression as referring to other European
nations," says the Times South American
Supplement.
"A few Englishmen know that the independence of Chile is very largely due
to the heroism and talents of Lord
Dundonald, one of Nelson's captains,
who trained the early Chilian navy and
taught the men how to defeat the Spaniards. Chilians are not ungrateful to
his memory, for one of the finest warships the 'Admiral Cochrane,' and no
town in Chile is complete without its
'Calle Cochrane' as one of its chief
streets.'
