DAILY   EDITION
j^flltLION
TO BE RAISED
by LOCAL  IMPROVEMENT   DE-
BENTURE ISSUE
I Md. Pattullo Moves in Favor of Issue
of $540,000 of Local Improvement
Debenture Stock and Motion Ia
Cwried, Aid. Hilditch Dissenting.
JH. Pattullo introduced a motion re-
i prig the issue of local improvement
I -i-jBitures at the city council last night
ad spoke very emphatically in favor
j of it. He increased the sum proposed to
I be raised by this method by $40,000
making the proposed debenture issue one
1 of|540.O0O.
The reason for his motion, he said,
j ns ol course the position they were in
regarding the attitude of the Bank of
Montreal and the G. T. P. He did not
believe, however, that a single member
ot the council did not feel that the agreement made originally with the Bank of
Montreal was a good one. They were
not paying interest under that arrangement on a million dollars aB some people
supposed but only on amounts obtained,
from time to time. They were all
anxious to get the work under way and
the Bank of Montreal was an old established institution which had made a
specialty on municipal financing and
could do the work better than the new
city could do it itself.
Rrefering to the differences supposed to
east between the city and the G. T. P.
Aid. Pattullo said that as far as he wau
concerned the G. T. P. would never
have exemption from taxation. A certain
adjustment might be arrived at but the
sooner the G. T. P. came to understand
that exemption was out of the question,
the better.
"The Dominion of Canada," said Aid.
Pattullo, "is not dependent on the
G. T. P. but the G. T. P. is dependent
on Canada. The vast resources of the
territory where we have the very mountains interlaced with gold are what the
0. T. P. seeks to share in. But we must
remember that though the G. T. P. does
not own the country, the country owns
the G. T. P. People have come here
on promises made by the G. T. P. They
have invested largely in property here
"Kl if the G. T. P. does not continue
y�� serve thc interests of Canada, Canada
My take over the G. T. P. which would
*rhaps be the best thing that could
lappen."
However, the city needed the money
j��* for its improvements and the only
thing to do was to go into the open
""Ats for it, he concluded.
AW. Lynch said that he believed the
��y could borrow as much as it required.
'was necessary to proceed along the
Vindicated, and he thought no
P��lty would be mot.
���Wetting to the momentous letter from
��eBa"k of Montreal, the Mayor aaid

NET STRETCHED
FOR LOST BODIES
LITTLE HOPE OF THEIR BEING
RAISED BY DRAGGING
Efforts to Reach Them Have Failed
in Spite of Continued Toil Owing
to Snag Strewn Lake Bottom. Still
Continuing Search.
W. Sims, the launchman attached to
the. Woodworth Lake survey party, was
in the city this morning. He states that
the continued efforts of five men to reach
the bodies of Harry Gilroy and Alex.
Allen who perished in the canoe accident
on the Shawatlans Lake a week ago.
Three men are still continuously
engaged in the work of searching for
the bodies, but little hope is now entertained of getting them by dragging.
There is not enough current to have
moved the bodies, the men feel sure, but
the bottom is so uneven and snag strewn
that it is next to impossible that the
tackle can reach the bottom fairly.
A net has now been secured and was
this morning stretched across the outlet
of the lake so that if the bodies rise to
the surface, as they may do any time
now, they cannot drift over the falls.
INDIANS BEFORE JUDGE   YOUNG
Charged With Theft of Logging Tool*
and Camp Goods
Two Indians of the Tsimpsean tribe
came before Judge Young this morning
charged with stealing logging tools and
camp equipment from another Indian
named George Moore at a camp near
Telegraph Point on the Skeena river.
They were brought in to the city by
For. ythe, provincial police constable
from Port Essington. Their case was
adjourned till 2 p.m. today.
TWO AVIATORS INJURED
PRESBYTERIAN LADIES PRESIDE

The community of Prince Rupert is
earning today how well the ladies of
the First Presbyterian church can cook.
The ladies have been preparing during
the past ten days for their sale of homemade delectables which took place today
in the Presbyterian church building.
Rev. W. F. Kerr has been taking an
active interest in the sale which has been
well patronized and is a great success.
Investigate Aldermere District
W. M. Law and W. S. Benson, real
estate agents of this city are at present
taking a journey up to the Aldermere
country to investigate real estate interests in the neighborhood of the G. T.
P. line of route. They will go by pack
train from Aldermere into the surrounding country.
Provincial Prisoners Leave
Randolph Rainier sentenced to three
month's imprisonment for selling liquor
without a license at Hazelton, and
Jacob Ingleson sentenced to three months
for vagrancy left in charge of the provincial police for Westminster last
night.
Morane and His Brother Are Probably Beyond Hopes of Recovery
(Special to the Optimist)
Paris, Oct. 7.���The injuries to the
Morane brothers are likely to prove
fatal in both cases. They were the
favorites in the competition for the
twenty thousand dollar prize for a flight
from this city to Clermont. Soon after
their ascent for this prize something
went wrong with the machinery and they
were dashed to earth. Morane had both
legs broken and his brother's skull was
fractured.
PORT SIMPSON LEAVES

Large Number of Passenger*
The Port Simpson cleared at eight
o'clock this morning with eighty MMjfcj
of freight and about thirty passengers, j
The Grand Trunk Pacific engineering

Desentals, R. Mclntyre, John Hay, W.
T. Tamkin, K. Olson and R. O. Jennings.
Progress in Lighting Site
The light and telephone committee
met yesterday and reported at the city
council meeting that everything was
in first rate order regarding the city
lighting plant. In about three days the
site will be ready for the boilers.
City Contracts Measured Up
The City Engineer's report regarding
the contract work at present in progress
for the city with the amounts due so far
to the various contractors was formally
presented at last night's city council
meeting and referred to the Streets,
Works and Property committee.

MESSBOY ROBS
THE STEAMER
LOOTS    CITY   OF   SEATTLE   OF
COLD AND NOTES
Mail Pouches Cut Open and Rifled of
Thouinads of Dollars���Arrested
With Gold Bricks and Notes in
His Pockets.
Seattle, Oct. 3.���Gold bullion and
Candaian and United States bank
notes the amount of which is not yet
known, but which aggregate many
thousand dollars, were stolen from the |
mail room of the steamer City of Seattle, last night or early this morning.
T. Buckley, sailor's messboy on the
vessel, on whom eight gold bricks and
a large number of notes were found
was arrested in connection with the
robbery as the City of Seattle reached
the wharf from Skagway and has been
lodged in the county jail
The robbery was discovered this
morning by Mail Clerk William Decatur as the steamer was nearing Seattle.
Decatur raised an alarm and informed
Captain C. H. White of the City of
Seattle, who ordered an immediate
search of the liner. First Officer Thomas
Johnson discovered the gold bullion
on the messboy, and after a search
found a large number of banknotes
wrapped around his legs. An examination of the mail room disclosed the
fact that almost every registered package
on board ahd been gone through, and it
has been found impossible to ascertain
exactly the extent of the robbery.
When the steamer docked at Seattle
the passengers were searched before
being permitted to go ashore.
NO HOPE FOR
THE MONARCHY
PORTUGAL NOW UNDOUBTEDLY
A REPUBLIC
Spanish Government Strengthening
Its Garrisons About Barcelona in
Belief That Republican Uprising
Will Probably Start at That Point.
(Special to the Optimist)
Paris, Oct. 7.���Sousa Roza, the resident Portuguese minister here, holds
out no hope for the striken monarchy.
He received no official word from Lisbon
yesterday and this he regards as the
worst kind of an indication as to the
situation. The Republicans here say
that only a complete victory for the
rebels will end the trouble.
Spanish Garrison   Strengthened
Barcelon , Oct. 8.���The Spanish gov-
ment-js strengthening the garrison at
Catalonia, and Republican leaders are
being closely watched by police and
military spies. An outbreak in Spain
is now believed to be inevitable, and it
is thought that it will start here, which
has so long been a hotbed of seditious
conspiracy.
SECOND AVENUE CONTRACT
Contractor   Meets   Committee   Regarding Transfer of Contracts
MUST CONSULT
WITH PARTIES
BEFORE   COUNCIL   CAN   SETTLE
ON CONTRACT TRANSFER
Aid. Mclntyre's Important Motion
Withdrawn in Favor of Motion Referring Matter to Committee for
Careful Consultation by Principals
The Streets, Works and Property committee of the city council met this afternoon in conference with S. H. Watson
the contractor for the portion of Second
avenue on which it is proposed to stop
operations. Mr. Watson was at the
City Hall this morning consulting the
plans, etc., regarding the part of Third
avenue proposed to be graded instead of
his contract on Second avenue. It is
understood that provided an agreement
can be come to the contractor is favorable to the transfer.

McGregor For Governor
St. John, N. B., Oct. 1.���It is rumored that Senator McGregor will be
appointed lieutenant-governor, and that
H. T. Logan will go the the senate.
Aid. Mclntyre introduced the motion
notice of which he gaveWednesday night
at last night's city council. He said he
had nothing to add in advocating it. It
was not his purpose to criticize any
alderman either in connection with this
or any other question. Enough ctiricism
came from outside. He simply adhered
to the broad principles of what he considered fair and right, and therefore put
his motion that the grading should be
done where it was most needed. Regarding what Aid. Mobley had said
last night about a possible difficulty in
transferring the contract Aid. Mclntyre
said that he had specially consulted the
city solicitor on that point, and was informed that there was no obstacle in
the way provided that the contractor
was agreeable to resign one contract in
favor of another. Aid. Mclntyre had
also consulted the contractor who seemed
i* favorably disposed towards the change,
and the manager of the Bank of Montreal
who had said that the bank would do
nothing to embarrass the city in this
transfer. The bank had invested here,
it was here for business, the manager had
said, and he assured Aid. Mobley that
if there were any change at all over these
contracts, the bank would favor the one
carried on in the heart of the city
where the property was most valuable
and would assess higher. He then put
his motion before the council to tbe
effect that work should cease on S. H.
Watson's Second avenue contract, and
be started in preference on the congested
I section of Third avenue.
Aid. Lynch asked if S. H. Watson had
been consulted regarding the basis on
j which he would be willing to change his
1 contract.
Aid. Mclntyre replied that of course
| it wss not for him to discuss the question
of basis with the contractor; that was a
matter for the council. He had asked
S. H. Watson about the change and
Watson seemed ready even only too
glad to have the work taken in to Third
avenue where he had his rock crusher
standing idle, and where Mr. Hyde's
lots were situated. Aid. Mclntyre could
see no reason why the matter should
not be decided this way. The young
man, he thought, could settle it for
himself as well as the chairman of the
Streets committee.
Aid. Lynch thought it might be all
right if S. H. Watson were willing to
have the transfer made. "But," he
said, "if we take away the contract from
him, he will have a case for damages
against us which he may use as a lever
to get any old price from the city for
the work on Third avenue." Aid. Lynch
went on to say that he did not think
the residents on the portion of Second
avenue affected were specially anxious to
have it graded before other parts of the
city. He suggested a motion that S. H.
Watson be consulted regarding the basis
of the proposed transfer of contracts
before proceeding definitely with it.
Aid. Naden rose to call attention to
the fact that Aid. Mclntyre's motion
still lacked a seconder. In order that
Aid. Mclntyre might not have his
motion rendered void on a technicality, he
would second it provided he were allowed to reserve his right to vote as he
If Aid. Lynch's motion to the

While Aid. Hilditch was speaking on
the subject of the Ninth avenue water
supply last night Ensign Johnstone and
Capt. Kerr of the Salvation Army corps
in the city entered the City Hall to
approach the Mayor on a matter of
urgency.
It seems that the brother of Joe McGrath had fallen heavily from the
piling at Port Essington that morning,
and had broken his jaw���a painful and
distressing injury.
He was lying on the steamer Port
Simpson, and a permit was required
to admit him to the hospital.
Ensign Johnstone thought the Mayor
could write the necessary permit but
the Mayor said this was in the hands of
j Mr. McMullin. Mayor Stork rang up
; Mr. McMullin at once and arranged for
the permit to be got ready for Ensign

Committee if they were prepared to put

desired it to be put, of course, in the
cheapest manner possible.
Aid. Mobley in reply said that the
committee had taken the matter up
in a small way so far. They were really
dependant on the experience and knowledge of the city engineer in this case.
He was more conversant with the question than the committee could possibly
be. They expected the engineer's report shortly, when the matter would be
decided in committee and reported upon
to the council for final decision.

City Contracts Measured Up
The City Engineer's report regarding
the contract work at present in progress
for the city with the amounts due so far
to the various contractors was formally
presented at last night's city council
meeting and referred to the Streets,
Works and Property committee.
Seattle, Oct. 3.���Gold bullion and
Candaian and United States bank
notes the amount of which is not yet
known, but which aggregate many
thousand dollars, were stolen from the
mail room of the steamer City of Seattle, last night or early this morning.
T. Buckley, sailor's messboy on the
vessel, on whom eight gold bricks and
a large number of notes were found
was arrested in connection with the
robbery as the City of Seattle reached
the wharf from Skagway and has been
lodged in the county jail
The robbery was discovered this
morning by Mail Clerk William Decatur as the steamer was nearing Seattle.
Decatur raised an alarm and informed
Captain C. H. White of the City of
Seattle, who ordered an immediate
search of the liner. First Officer Thomas
Johnson discovered the gold bullion
on the messboy, and after a search
found a large number of banknotes
wrapped around his legs. An examination of the mail room disclosed the
fact that almost every registered package
on board ahd been gone through, and it
has been found impossible to ascertain
exactly the extent of the robbery.
Aid. Mclntyre introduced the motion
notice of which he gaveWednesday night
at last night's city council. He said he
had nothing to add in advocating it. It
was not his purpose to criticize any
alderman either in connection with this
or any other question. Enough ctiricism
came from outside. He simply adhered
to the broad principles of what he con-
(Special to the Optimist)
Paris, Oct. 7.���SouBa Roza, the resident Portuguese minister here, holds
out no hope for the striken monarchy.
He received no official word from Lisbon
yesterday and this he regards as the
worst kind of an indication as to the
situation. The Republicans here say
that only  a complete victory for the j gjdered fair and right, and therefore put
rebels will end the trouble.
Spanish Garrison Strengthened
Barcelon , Oct. 8.���The Spanish gov-
ment-js strengthening the garrison at
Catalonia, and Republican leaders are
being closely watched by police and
military spies. An outbreak in Spain
is now believed to be inevitable, and it
is thought that it will start here, which
has so long been a hotbed of seditious
conspiracy.
SECOND AVENUE CONTRACT
Contractor   Meets   Committee   Regarding Transfer of Contracts
his motion that the grading should be
done where it was most needed. Regarding what Aid. Mobley had said
last night about a possible difficulty in
transferring the contract Aid. Mclntyre
said that he had specially consulted the
city solicitor on that point, and was informed that there was no obstacle in
the way provided that the contractor
was agreeable to resign one contract in
favor of another. Aid. Mclntyre had
also consulted the contractor who seemed
{.favorably disposed towards the change,
and the manager of the Bank of Montreal
who had said that the bank would do
nothing to embarrass the city in this
transfer. The bank had invested here,
it was here for business, the manager had
said, and he assured Aid. Mobley that
if there were any change at all over these
contracts, the bank would favor the one
carried on in the heart of the city
where the property was most valuable
and would assess higher. He then put
his motion before the council  to the
The Streets, Works and Property committee of the city council met this afternoon in conference with S. H. Watson
the contractor for the portion of Second
avenue on which it is proposed to stop
operations. Mr. Watson was at the
City Hall this morning consulting the
plans, etc., regarding the part of Third j effect that work should cease on S. H.
avenue proposed to be graded instead of Watson's Second avenue contract, and
his contract on Second avenue. It is ! be started in preference on the congested

man, he thought, could settle it for
himself as well as the chairman of the
Streets committee.
Aid. Lynch thought it might be all
right if S. H. Watson were willing to
have the transfer made. "But," he
said, "if we take away the contract from
him, he will have a case for damages
against us which he may use as a lever
to get any old price from the city for
the work on Third avenue." Aid. Lynch
went on to say that he did not think
the residents on the portion of Second
avenue affected were specially anxious to
have it graded before other parts of the
city. He suggested a motion that S. H.
Watson be consulted regarding the basis
of the proposed transfer of contracts
before proceeding definitely with it.
Aid. Naden rose to call attention to
the fact that Aid. Mclntyre's motion
still lacked a seconder. In order that
Aid. Mclntyre might not have his
motion rendered void on a technicality, he
would second it provided he were allowed to reserve his right to vote as he

G. W. Morrow
Goldfleld, Oct. 3.���The Goldfield Consolidated is a worthy competitor of the
United States mint, for it has demonstrated its ability to produce gold dollars for less than 25 cents. Were it
not so heavily capitalized (3,359,000
shares, par value $10), these shares
would undoubtedly sell at a big premium, as it is the premier gold mine of
the world, and is now disbursing among
its stockholders over $7,000,000 in
dividends and its known ungerground
resources assure the payment in dividends of nearly the selling price of the
stock, $26,000,000.
Operating consecutively on run of
mine ore, it is treating 24,000 tons of
ore per month, which is returning a
profit of $25 per ton. Its dividends call
for $590,000 per month, and it avergaed
to earn $602,000 per month for the past
three months. If necessity required, it
could treat high grade ores and show
its dividends earned three times over,
but this would only lead to disaster later
on.
Goldfield Consolidated is not now
regarded with the skepticism of two
years ago, because it has demonstrated
that it is more of a commercial proposition than the ordinary gold mining
chances.
If good people would but make their
goodness agreeable, and smile instead of
frowning in their virtue, how many
would they win to the good cause?���

TO HAVE BUREAU
IN WASHINGTON
CANADA TO BE REPRESENTED AT
AMERICAN CAPITAL
Temporary Appointment Made at
Salary of Four Thousand Five Hundred a Year���Will Lease Residence
in Fashionable Quarter.
Washington, D. C, Oct. 4.���Government officials and others in administration circles are much interested in the information from the Dominion that a Canadian bureau will be
permanently established at Washington
at an early date under the charge of a
resident representative whose special
duties will be to look after the numerous
and important questions that are continually arising between the United
States and Canada. George H. Gail, a
temporary appointee, entered on his
duties on October 1 at a salary of $4,500
a year, and it is stated that he has been
instructed by the Candaian government
to lease a residence in Massachusetts
avenue northwest near Sheridan Circle,
which will be the home of the bureau.
It is expected the definite information
regarding who is to be placed in charge
of the bureau will be forthcoming during
the coming week.
The Canadian government, following
the suggestions made on numerous
previous occasions by the state department that an envoy be permanently
stationed in Washington to look after
the interests of the Dominion, decided
upon such action only after a series of
conferences by the officials of that
government. Several months ago the
government decided to establish a
publicity bureau in this city, but the
Dominion officials could not reach an
agreement.
ENGLAND A RAGBAG
English Tariff Expert Draws Parallel
of Protection
New York, Oct. 3.���Free trade has
made England the world's ragbag, in
the opinion of J. Ellis Barker, a noted
English tariff expert and writer on
economic subjects, who is in New York
on his first visit to the United States
to study economics here at short range.
"The condition of the American
workingman is far above that of his
British brother," said Mr. Barker.
"Owing largely to unemployed and
extremely low wages, British workers
live from hand to mouth. Very few
have any tangible property, while a
very large percentage of the American workmen have land and houses
of their own.
"Besides, American workingmen have
almost $4,000,000,000 in savings banks,
while the British workers have only
$1,000,000,000.

SECRECY IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS
It seems that the city council of Fernie, like that of Prince Rupert, has lost
the confidence of the citizens by hole and corner meetings, and to some extent
the situation in both cases bears a marked similarity. At its meeting last Thursday
evening the Fernie council felt compelled to make public a batch of correspondence
dating as far back as June 29th. It was a batch of G. T. P. correspondence dating
to somewhere about that time which Mayor Stork felt compelled to make public
but a short time ago. The Fernie council has also trouble with its bankers, but
their's is regarding an overdraft and ours is the difficulty of ge ting a draft honored.
The troubles in both cases are charged to undue secrecy on the part of the councils,
but there the similarity ends. Fernie's mayor suggests a public meeting to help
the council in its troubles;  while Prince Rupert's mayor carries as a banner the
Vanderbilt motto, "the public be d d," and resented the Board of Trade taking
action regarding the secret understanding the Mayor hoped to arrive at with the
railway people as to taxation.
The most important thing in all municipal matters is to start right. Fernie
staited by electing a man named Stork as mayor. So did Prince Rupert. The
Fernie Free Press says:
"The public has been worried a great deal about civic affairs during the past
few weeks. The actions of the city council as a body and as individuals have been
more or less severely crtiicized by the man on the street. Various rumors have been
afloat, some of them involving damaging reflections on the municipal administration. The crisis in the accounting department and' the disconcerting, though
probably advisable withholding of the auditor's report, has given rise to a great
deal of gossip. Actions of the Mayor and council have been characterized as highhanded, ill-advised and in some cases actually illegal. In order to clear matters
up and to dispel the cloud of distrust that has darkened civic life recently it has
been decided that the fullest publicity be given to all civic affairs at present in
debate.   The Mayor has suggested a public meeting.   The idea is a good one."

LAKELSE LANDS
ARE ATTRACTIVE
RESULT OF RECENT INVESTIGATIONS REGARDING THEM
What Experts Think of the Soil, Climate, Clearing of Land and General Conditions in Walla Walla and
Yakima Valleys.
Advertise in The Optimist
Growing interest is being displayed
in connection with the Lakelse country
and inquiries are continually made regarding its siol, climate and general
prospects for the settler. As this district is situated so conveniently with
reference to Prince Rupert that it is
bound to farm one of the principal sources
of the city's ferm produce supply uV
the future, the following facts gathered
from expert opinion regarding the country will be welcomed:
Investigations have been made right
up to the present date in October this
year with a view to seeing how far the
danger of early frosts affects this district as a framing centre.   The result is
most favorable for the district. It is
positively known after echaustive enquiry that early frosts are never experienced there at all. As these frosts
are apt to cause considerable loss in
otherwise excellent farming lands in
Canada the fact of their absence gives a
special advantage to this district for the
settler who wants to take up farming,
market gardening, and fruit growing.
Again as regards the rainfall: Situated
as it is, well back from the high coast
line which chills the Pacific rainclouds
and precipitates the rain, the Lakelse
country is found to possess a climate
drier and sunnier than that of the port of
Prince Rupert which the country is
destined to supply with fruit and farm
produce. To visit the Lakelse country
atfer a spell of rainy weather in Prince
Rupert is to find the soil there dry
without being parched and every evidence that the weather there has been
fine both for farming and for pleasant
living���just as those who live there
maintain it to be. This is the opinion
of several who have journeyed specially
to that district to make sure of this
point regarding the rainfall before
taking up land there.
The soil is a fine red loam excellent
for all kinds of produce. Splemdid apples
are now grown in this dictrict, and all
kinds of vegetables come to perfection.
The opinions of soil experts are invariably in high favor of this soil horticul-
turally and agriculturally.
The question of clearing the land is
one which is often misunderstood to
mean the need for removing very heavy
timber. The fact that these lands have
not been staked at all for timber in a
land where timber limits are rapidly
being taken up, is sufficient to prove
that the growth here is not heavy. It
is in fact very easily cleared. A settler
taking up land there now can be on the
market with his produce within a year.
Of course before the land is thoroughly
cleared the snow lies longer than on
cleared land. This is the case in the
provinces of Quebec, Ontario, and New
Brunswick, as is well known, where the
trees remain. On the cleared land in
the Lakelse country the snow vanishes
early in spring. There can be no doubt
that this district is one of the most
promising of profit for the settler in the
neighborhood of Prince Rupert. With its
climate and soil so good for farming,
market gardening, and fruit culture and
its convenient situation in reference to
the rising city and extending railway
the Lakelse Valleys will rank equal
and more than equal to the Okanagan.
Those who know both districts are
convinced of this.

I Aid. Barrow asked if other dissatisfied

"No," said the Mayor, "the Court of
Revision would have to be held for the
CT. P. Ry. Co., the G. T. P. Development Co., and other citizens as well."
IAld. Mobley asked if the lieutenant-
governor could arrange for thia and the
Mayor said he thought so.
Aid. Hilditch said that he would
oppose Aid. Pattullo's motion because it
was the first time in history, he thought,
that a city of the size of Prince Rupert
had set about selling over a million
dollars worth of debentures without
consulting the citizens and having their
"Yea" or "Nay"  regarding  the   pro-
LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
Skeena Land Distriet���Diatrict of Banka Island
Take notice that James Catlin of Graceville, Minnesota, occupation farmer, Intends to apply lor
 '���*""   to  purchase  the  following  described
permiasion
lands:
He said that with the exception of the
(160,000's worth of contracts  already
let the city was just where it had been
before as regards borrowing funds.   He
thought it was necessary to consult the
citizens.  He was satisfied that not one
citizen in Prince Rupert desired to get
a single five-cent piece the better of the |
G. T. P., and the sooner the G. T. P.
understood Prince Rupert and Prince
Rupert understood the G. T. P the better.
He thought more delay would be caused
over the process of issuing these debentures and the city was taking a chance
in issuing them.   The simplest way out
of the difficulty was for the city to have
a Money Bylaw framed to cover the
amount required for rough grading of
the whole city, water-works, and the
sewerage system contemplated���over a
million dollars.
'We arranged to borrow a large sum
I ol money," he said, "and I believe that
*e citizens of Prince Rupert thought
when they elected us that this money
"as to be spent on providing employment for men having their homes and
Allies in the city.    We have fallen
���rom that position and are giving con-
tracts to contractors irrespective of the
j *" oI la��or they use.   I believe yet
tnat we should devote that million and
a quarter to the benefit of the people of
the city.  We will need it before the G.
'���'��� gets the railway through."
Aid. Lynch thought that Aid.  Hil-
��*" bylaw would need to be framed
I T" five million dollars.    He said
'W some of the grading of the city

citizens would be maintained.
Aid. Lynch contradicted this about
the turning down of petitions for plank-
ways. The reasons for not granting such
petitions were practical and engineering
difficulties in the way.
Aid. Pattullo said that the matter of
the class of labor had nothing to do
with the General Fund or Local Improvement scheme. The debentures would go
all right backed by the city' s guarantee
which gave the city a better chance of
getting the money by this plan.
Aid. Naden said that Aid. Hilditch
had raised a pretty wide range of questions. He agreed with Aid. Pattullo
that it would be easier to get the $540,000
his way, also with Aid. Lynch that it
would be a difficult matter to get money
enough for the grading of the whole
city. He looked upon Aid. Hilditch's
ideas regarding the labor question and
the city expenditure as something of a
charitable scheme.
Aid. Hilditch: "I must take exception
to that, Mr. Mayor."
Aid. Naden explained that he had
understood Aid. Hilditch to that effect.
Aid. Hilditch: "Well you must have
been very dense to do so."
Aid. Naden: "Dense or not, I understood it in that way. I am in favor of
Aid. Pattullo's motion."
Aid. Mclntyre said the whole discussion reminded him of the council's
earliest days during the discussions
regarding general fund or local improvement scheme. He would support Aid.
Pattullo's motion, "We cannot live
without the G. T. P," he added, "any
more than they can live without us, and
I am anxious for a friendly settlement
with the G. T. P."
Aid. Hilditch referred to the expenses
of the present survey work on Wood-
worth Lake, and asked what fund that
expense would come out of, and how
long it could be kept up. Very soon
a fresh issue of bonds would be needed
close on the heels of this issue. This
question had to be threshed out, he said,
they were likely to leave a legacy of
trouble to the next council if it were
not settled. He did not believe in going
to meet trouble, but in this case they
were in it, and had got to face it.
The Mayor replied regarding the
water scheme that the survey was
nearly finished, and said that the water
works would have to wait for the issue
of further debentures.
"That is exactly what I say," said
Aid. Hilditch.
Aid. Mobley brought the discussion
to a close by a quiet remark or two.
"The more I learn about taxation," he
said, "the less I find I know." He
believed in the frontage tax however.
Regarding the outlay for the Woodworth
water works he believed this would run
to another half million bat it would be
a well invested half million which would
bring returns. The city must wait
meanwhile for funds, and get along
with what it could provide for itself.
There was no use in the council's tackling
too vast a problem all at once.
The motion was put by the Mayor
and carried, Aid. Hilditch dissenting.
effect that the contracts be transferred
if the contractor's terms were favorable,
were included. Aid. Naden expressed
himself ready to support the motion and
vote for it.
Aid. Lynch suggested that Watson
might want a little higher price for rock
cutting on the congested portion of
Third avenue as there was so much
valuable property there. He would not
like the council to decide on this matter
till arrangements had been made with
Watson.
Aid. Mobley told of a conversation he
had had with S. H. Watson in which
Watson had said that he would be
ready to transfer his contract provided
an equivalent amount of work were given
him on Third avenue. Aid. Mobley
thought the council could be very strongly criticized indeed if it took away the
first contract without first making a
workable arrangement with Watson
regarding the second.
Aid. Hilditch thought that some
arrangement should be made with the
Bank of Montreal regarding the funds
to carry on the contracts at present in
hand. "We have no assurance to the
effect that the bank is to go forward with
these," he said.
Aid. Pattullo explained that the bank
had practically promised this would be
all right; and Aid Hilditch went on to
say that they would need to be certain
on this point as the contractors would
expect their money regularly from month
to month, and it would be only a few
days now till the city would have to go
to the Bank of Montreal for the money.
He believed this question would have
been better treated after the discussion
of Aid. Pattullo's forthcoming motion
regarding the sale of the city debentures,
ane regretted that he had arrived late
at the council meeting as he had hoped
to induce the council to put Aid, Pattullo's motion first.
Aid. Pattullo said that there was no
sense in crossing the bridge before they
came to it. They had the bank's
assurance that the existing contracts
would be seen through.
Aid. Mclntyre said that if Aid.
Hilditch had been in earlier he would
have heard the result of his interview
with the .bank manager regarding the
bank's attitude towards these contracts.
He went on to say that he was perfectly
willing to have his motion amended along
the lines suggested in the discussion, and
that they should find out definitely how
S. H. Watson considered the matter, and
if necessary have his views in writing.
Aid. Mobley then rose to propose
that in view of the position now arrived
at Aid. Mclntyre should withdraw his
motion and allow the whole matter to be
referred to the Streets, Works and Property committee who would .interview the
parties concerned, viz.: the bank manager and the contractor.
Aid. Mclntyre withdrew his motion
and put Aid. Mobley's suggestion in the
form of a motion in substitution for it.
This was seconded by Aid. Naden, and
carried by the council.
The Streets, Works and Property
committee will report regarding the
result of their conferences with the
parties concerned on the subject.

SECRECY IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS
It seems that the city council of Fernie, like that of Prince Rupert, has lost
the confidence of the citizens by hole and corner meetings, and to some extent
the situation in both cases bears a marked similarity. At its meeting last Thursday
evening the Fernie council felt compelled to make public a batch of correspondence
dating as far back as June 29th. It was a batch of G. T. P. correspondence dating
to somewhere about that time which Mayor Stork felt compelled to make public
but a short time ago. The Fernie council has also trouble with its bankers, but
their's is regarding an overdraft and ours is the difficulty of ge ting a draft honored.
The troubles in both cases are charged to undue secrecy on the part of the councils,
but there the similarity ends. Fernie's mayor suggests a public meeting to help
the council in its troubles;  while Prince Rupert's mayor carries as a banner the
Vanderbilt motto, "the public be d d," and resented the Board of Trade taking
action regarding the secret understanding the Mayor hoped to arrive at with the
railway people as to taxation.
The most important thing in all municipal matters is to start right. Fernie
staited by electing a man named Stork as mayor. So did Prince Rupert. The
Fernie Free Press says:
"The public has been worried a great deal about civic affairs during the past
few weeks. The actions of the city council as a body and as individuals have been
more or less severely crtiicized by the man on the street. Various rumors have been
afloat, some of them involving damaging reflections on the municipal administration. The crisis in the accounting department and' the disconcerting, though
probably advisable withholding of the auditor's report, has given rise to a great
deal of gossip. Actions of the Mayor and council have been characterized as highhanded, ill-advised and in some cases actually illegal. In order to clear matters
up and to dispel the cloud of distrust that has darkened civic life recently it has
been decided that the fullest publicity be given to all civic affairs at present in
debate.   The Mayor has suggested a public meeting.   The idea is a good one."

LAKELSE LANDS
ARE ATTRACTIVE
RESULT OF RECENT INVESTIGATIONS REGARDING THEM
What Experts Think of the Soil, Climate, Clearing of Land and General Conditions in Walla Walla and
Yakima Valleys.
Advertise in The Optimist
Growing interest is being displayed
in connection with the Lakelse country
and inquiries are continually made regarding its sioi, climate and general
prospects for the settler. As this district is situated so conveniently with
reference to Prince Rupert that it is
bound to farm one of the principal sources
of the city's form produce supply in'
the future, the following facts gathered
from expert opinion regarding the country will be welcomed:
Investigations have been made right
up to the present date in October this
year with a view to seeing how far the
danger of early frosts affects this district as a framing centre.   The result is
most favorable for the district. It is
positively known after echaustive enquiry that early frosts are never experienced there at all. As these frosts
are apt to cause considerable loss in
otherwise excellent farming lands in
Canada the fact of their absence gives a
special advantage to this district for the
settler who wants to take up farming,
market gardening, and fruit growing.
Again as regards the rainfall: Situated
as it is, well back from the high coast
line which chills the Pacific rainclouds
and precipitates the rain, the Lakelse
country is found to possess a climate
drier and sunnier than that of the port of
Prince Rupert which the country is
destined to supply with fruit and farm
produce. To visit the Lakelse country
atfer a spell of rainy weather in Prince
Rupert is to find the soil there dry
without being parched and every evidence that the weather there has been
fine both for farming and for pleasant
living���just as those who live there
maintain it to be. This is the opinion
of several who have journeyed specially
to that district to make sure of this
point regarding the rainfall before
taking up land there.
The soil is a fine red loam excellent
for all kinds of produce. Splemdid apples
are now grown in this dictrict, and all
kinds of vegetables come to perfection.
The opinions of soil experts are invariably in high favor of this soil horticul-
turally and agriculturally.
The question of clearing the land is
one which is often misunderstood to
mean the need for removing very heavy
timber. The fact that these lands have
not been staked at all for timber in a
land where timber limits are rapidly
being taken up, is sufficient to prove
that the growth here is not heavy. It
is in fact very easily cleared. A settler
taking up land there now can be on the
market with his produce within a year.
Of course before the land is thoroughly
cleared the snow lies longer than on
cleared land. This is the case in the
provinces of Quebec, Ontario, and New
Brunswick, as is well known, where the
trees remain. On the cleared land in
the Lakelse country the snow vanishes
early in spring. There can be no doubt
that this district is one of the most
promising of profit for the settler in the
neighborhood of Prince Rupert. With its
climate and soil so good for farming,
market gardening, and fruit culture and
its convenient situation in reference to
the rising city and extending railway
the Lakelse Valleys will rank equal
and more than equal to the Okanagan.
Those who know both districts are
convinced of this.

lutein council for a new  Court  of
I Unison.  "We don't want to take any
fidrutage of the G. T. P." said the
yor, "but we don't want to surrender
I our birthright. The G. T. P. must be
jade to understand once and for all
tint there is no exemption coming. We
must show a firm front to the G. T. P."
I Aid. Barrow asked if other dissatisfied
citizens would be barred from the new
Court of Revision.
��� "No," said the Mayor, "the Court of
I Revision would have to be held for the
IG. T. P. Ry. Co., the G. T. P. Develop-
I ment Co., and other citizens as well."
I Aid. Mobley asked if the lieutenant-
governor could arrange for this and the
Mayor said he thought so.
. Aid. Hilditch said that he would
I oppose Aid. Pattullo's motion because it
| was the first time in history, he thought,
t a city of the size of Prince Rupert
I had set about selling over a million
worth of debentures without
| consulting the citizens and having their
or "Nay"  regarding  the  pro-
LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
He said that with the exception of the
UM-MO's worth of contracts already
let the city was just where it had been
before as regards borrowing funds. He
thought it was necessary to consult the
citizens. He was satisfied that not one
citizen in Prince Rupert desired to get
gle five-cent piece the better of the
G. T. P., and the sooner the G. T. P.
understood Prince Rupert and Prince
Rupert understood the G. T. P the better.
He thought more delay would be caused
over the process of issuing these debentures and the city was taking a chance
in issuing them. The simplest way out
of the difficulty was for the city to have
- Money Bylaw framed to cover the
amount required for rough grading of
the whole city, water-works, and the
sewerage system contemplated���over a
���*m dollars.
"We arranged to borrow a large sum
�� money," he said, "and I believe that
tbe citizens of Prince Rupert thought
*n they elected us that this money
** to be spent on providing employ-
���"�� for men having their homes and
Umihes in the city. We have fallen
m lhat position and are giving conned to contractors irrespective of the
����� of labor they use. I believe yet
l��" we should devote that million and
��Warier to the benefit of the people of

Aid. Lynch contradicted this about
the turning down of petitions for plank-
ways. The reasons for not granting such
petitions were practical and engineering
difficulties in the way.
Aid. Pattullo said that the matter of
the class of labor had nothing to do
with the General Fund or Local Improvement scheme. The debentures would go
all right backed by the city' s guarantee
which gave the city a better chance of
getting the money by this plan.
Aid. Naden said that Aid. Hilditch
had raised a pretty wide range of questions. He agreed with Aid. Pattullo
that it would be easier to get the $540,000
his way, also with Aid. Lynch that it
would be a difficult matter to get money
enough for the grading of the whole
city. He looked upon Aid. Hilditch's
ideas regarding the labor question and
the city expenditure as something of a
charitable scheme.
Aid. Hilditch: "I must take exception
to that, Mr. Mayor."
Aid.  Naden explained  that  he had
understood Aid. Hilditch to that effect.
Aid. Hilditch:   "Well you must have
been very dense to do so."
Aid. Naden: "Dense or not, I understood it in that way. I am in favor of
Aid. Pattullo's motion."
Aid. Mclntyre said the whole discussion reminded him of the council's
earliest days during the discussions
regarding general fund or local improvement scheme. He would support Aid.
Pattullo's motion. "We- cannot live
without the G. T. P," he added, "any
more than they can live without us, and
I am anxious for a friendly settlement
with the G. T. P."
Aid. Hilditch referred to the expenses
of the present survey work on Wood-
worth Lake, and asked what fund that
expense would come out of, and how
long it could be kept up. Very soon
a fresh issue of bonds would be needed
close on the heels of this issue. This
question had to be threshed out, he said,
they were likely to leave a legacy of
trouble to the next council if it were
not settled. He did not believe in going
to meet trouble, but in this case they
were in it, and had got to face it.
The Mayor replied regarding the
water scheme that the survey was
nearly finished, and said that the water
works would have to wait for the issue
of further debentures.
"That is exactly what I say," said
Aid. Hilditch.
Aid. Mobley brought the discussion
to a close by a quiet remark or two.
"The more I learn about taxation," he
said, "the lees I find I know." He
believed in the frontage tax however.
Regarding the outlay for the Woodworth
water works he believed this would run
to another half million but it would be
a well invested half million which would
bring returns. The city must wait
meanwhile for funds, and get along
with what it could provide for itself.
There was no use in the council's tackling
too vast a problem all at once.
The motion was put by the Mayor
and carried, Aid. Hilditch dissenting.
effect that the contracts be transferred
if the contractor's terms were favorable,
were included. Aid. Naden expressed
himself ready to support the motion and
vote for it.
Aid. Lynch suggested that Watson
might want a little higher price for rock
cutting on the congested portion of
Third avenue as there was so much
valuable property there. He would not
like the council to decide on this matter
till arrangements had been made with
Watson.
Aid. Mobley told of a conversation he
had had with S. H. Watson in which
Watson had said that he would be
ready to transfer his contract provided
an equivalent amount of work were given
him on Third avenue. Aid. Mobley
thought the council could be very strongly criticized indeed if it took away the
first contract without first making a
workable arrangement with Watson
regarding the second.
Aid. Hilditch thought that some
arrangement should be made with the
Bank of Montreal regarding the funds
to carry on the contracts at present in
hand. "We have no assurance to the
effect that the bank is to go forward with
these," he said.
Aid. Pattullo explained that the bank
had practically promised this would be
all right; and Aid Hilditch went on to
say that they would need to be certain
on this point as the contractors would
expect their money regularly from month
to month, and it would be only a few
days now till the city would have to go
to the Bank of Montreal for the money.
He believed this question would have
been better treated after the discussion
of Aid. Pattullo's forthcoming motion
regarding the sale of the city debentures,
ane regretted that he had arrived late
at the council meeting as he had hoped
to induce the council to put Aid, Pattullo's motion first.
Aid. Pattullo said that there was no
sense in crossing the bridge before they
came to it. They had the bank's
assurance that the existing contracts
would be seen through.
Aid. Mclntyre said that if Aid.
Hilditch had been in earlier he would
have heard the result of his interview
with the,bank manager regarding the
bank's attitude towards these contracts.
He went on to say that he was perfectly
willing to have his motion amended along
the lines suggested in the discussion, and
that they should find out definitely how
S. H. Watson considered the matter, and
if necessary have his views in writing.
Aid. Mobley then rose to propose
that in view of the position now arrived
at Aid. Mclntyre should withdraw his
motion and allow the whole matter to be
referred to the Streets, Works and Prop-1
erty committee who would.interview the
parties concerned, viz.: the bank manager and the contractor.
Aid. Mclntyre withdrew his motion
and put Aid. Mobley's suggestion in the
form of a motion in substitution for it.
This was seconded by Aid. Naden, and
carried by the council.
The Streets, Works and Property
committee will report regarding the
result of their conferences with the
parties concerned on the subject.

SHOT HIS OWN DOG
Valuable Animal Had Shown a Tendency to Snap at Children
J. R. Beatty, the well-known express
man, caused a little sensation on the
waterfront this morning by taking a
revolver from his pocket and shooting
his red Irish setter. Then he gave the
animal a push into the water and stood
looking sadly at its dying struggles. Mr.
Beatty said the dog had lately shown a
tendency to snap at children and rather
than run any risks he had determined to
end its career.
The soap business is great for cleaning

COAL FIELDS
GREAT  STRIKE  MADE   BY   DIAMOND DRILLS
Twenty-three Feet of Minable Coal���
Contents of Area Estimated at Fifty Million Tons���On the Telkwa
River.
Coming at the close of what has been
otherwise a season of disappointment
and disaster, the great find made on the
properties of the Prince Rupert Coal
Fields by use of the diamond drill is
gratifying to everyone concerned in the
development of this northern country,
says the Omineca Herald. The people
who have put their money into the
enterprise now know they have won,
and others know that a huge amount of
good minable coal, estimated at from
50,000,000 to 60,600,000 tons had been
added to the known measures upon
which the country is dependent for its
fuel supply.
Early last spring F. M. Dockrill
and Thos. Jefferson came up the river
with two diamond drilling machines,
one run by steam and one by hand, and
a crew of men to start prospecting the
claims held by their company, on tbe
Morice and Telkwa rivers. Almost
as soon as the work was started the
big machine was put out of business
by a forest fire that swept down so
rapidly that the operatives had no
time o pull the rods out of the hole
that was being drilled. Further work
with the other machine failed to locate
any coal that would justify development. The machine was moved to
another basin and still nothing was
found that could be called a success.
Although by no means discouraged
by the outlook for the second basin
the drill was moved to the upper area
to see what could be found before the
season closed.
At a distance of 178 feet from the
surface the drilling had to be stopped
but coal totalling 28 feet in thickness
had been cut and the drill cores brought
to the surface. Three seams aggregating
23 feet were pronounced minable. The
other five feet is composed of small
seams not large enough to be mined.
Such tests as they were able to make
on the ground indicated a good bituminous coal. ���
The area is about two and a half
miles by three and is partly on the
watershed of the Morice river and
partly on the Telkwa river. To reach
the main line of the G. T. P. at the
mouth of the Telkwa river a branch of
something upward of twenty miles wilt
have to be built and this looks at the
present time as though it would be the
route adopted. The distance to the
main line down Morice river is said to be
longer.
Permanent work will be commenced
next spring as early as men and supplies
can be brought in. More diamond drill
holes will be put down to fully establish
the location of the various seams and
follow up with a working tunnel. Both
drills will be driven by steam next year,
and the other areas which did not show
coal this year will be tried again.
Although they only count on the
seams cut by the diamond drill there
are three seams and probably more
lying below those penetrated and which
crops on the hills either side of the basin
and their development will become a
part of next year's work.

ROADS ON THE ISLANDS
Work on Government Roads Practically Completed For Season
C. 2. Gillingham, inspector of government roads, said today that the roads
and trails on the islands are all practically completed for this season, with
the exception of the one from Masset to
Cape Fife, twenty-two miles, along
which the bridge work is not quite
finished. There are three bridges along
this road. There is also a good road now
from Skidgate to Tel 'El river, which
will serve nine hundred people. The
government appropriation was between
$20,000 and $26,000, and this has been
spent where roads and trails were the
most urgently needed. A larger appropriation is expected for next year.
Borden Now Mentioned
Ottawa, Oct. 1.���The Evening Journal says: The possibility is that Sir
Frederick Borden may become lieutenant-governor of Nova Scotia in succession to the late Hon. D. C.Fraser.
It is well known that the minister of
militia during late years has lost much
of his interest in politics, and some time
ago he expressed a desire to be rid of the
cares of office.
New Ore From Nine Mile
The most recent discovery of ore in
this viainity is reported from Nine Mile
mountain on the side facing town and on
which nothing had before been found.
The locations were made by Al. Harris

crop on the surface from two to four
feet and well mineralized. No tests
have been made to determine values
but if the silver is in the same proportion to the lead as in other properties
within a few miles there will be no
question of the ore being of a satisfactory
grade.���Omineca Herald.
