���IR RACING DURING BIG STORM
[undred Miles in Hour and
Fifty-five Minutes
velve Competing Aviators For
I Forty Seven Thousand Dollar Prize
I���Four Hundred And Eighty-
[Eight Mile*. Cross Country Flight.
(Special to the Optimist)
| Mezieres, France, August 11th.���In
le four hundred and eighty eight miles
]oss country flight, for a prize of
7,000, Leblanc this morning completed
Ie third leg of the perilous journey from
fcncy to Mezieres. The distance is one
Tindred miles and he made it in the re-
jarkable time of one hour and fifty five
Inutes. None of his six companions
lualled this..
iLeblanc came in during a blinding
electric storm, the lightning playing
about his frail aeroplane as he swooped
over the town. Hearing the staccato of
his motor above the roar of the onrush-
ing storm the entire populace of Mezieres
turned out into the streets to greet the
flying machine wildly careening in the
gale, the stays of the planes taut with
strain as the aviator swooped to earth.
The storm forced Lindpainter,
Aubrun, Cammerman, and Vullierme
to descend, the first two at Chalons and
the last at St. Michaels. Later all
ascended ed and finished the day's run.
The other aviators from Nancy were
Lieutenant Fequant, Lieutenant Vullierme, Legagneux, Ranez, and Aubrun,
the latter arriving second.
Leblanc's official time for the two hundred and eighty-five miles covered so far
is five hours and forty-eight minutes.
This paper refuses to suspect
any persons, but yesterday the
dynamiting department of the
City Council bombarded the printing shop, just as the daily was
going to press.

GOVERNMENT    WHARF
Petition     to      Have     Construction
Rushed  to a  Completion
Council is Taking Over the System
To-day.
A petition to premier McBride was
being circulated yesterday, calling upon
him to use his influence with the Minister
of Public Works to have the government
wharf at the foot of McBride street
completed without delay, as was promised by the government Bome time ago.
The petition recites the fact that the
Grand Trunk Pacific wharf is inadequate for the rapid increase of the com
merce of the port, and that outside th
boats of this company there are twenty
regular vessels of other steamship companies regularly plying here. The consequence is that often the wharf facilities are congested and vessels are
compelled to wait for a chance to berth,
to the great inconvenience of the shipping
interests and the public generally.
As a case in point it is noted that the
railway company announced recently
its intention of building an extension
of its present wharfage for the handling
oi iU coul and other material.
The petition seemed to hit the right
spot, for during the afternoon some
hundred and fifty signatures were appended to it. It is dated August 12th
and by that time the signature of every
leading merchant and business man in
the city will have been obtained for it.
The Board of Trade has called a
meeting of its council for three o'clock
Saturday afternoon to take up the
petition and consider other business.
The Telephone by-law was finally
adopted by the council last night and
everything is now ready for the council
to sign the agreement and take over the
plant. The mayor and clerk were instructed to sign and seal the same today
The Telephone Committee met last
night for a few minutes and appointed
E. A. Woods, J. C. McLennan, F.S.
Clements, W. D. Vance and D. G.
Stewart a board of trustees to handle
the business until the old company is
properly wound up and all the details
are completed.
A meeting of the shareholders and
representatives of the council will be
held tonight in the city hall. It is expected that the telephones will be
operated on Saturday for the first time
and that free service will be allowed the
first two days and that charges will
start from  Monday.
There was a lengthy discussion as to
whether the shareholders of the old
company should receive a bonus or
not. The general opinion was that most
of the shareholders would not accept
anything and did not expect it. It was
therefore decided to pass a vote of thanks
to the president, officers, directors and
chareholders for the services they had
rendered.
Aid. Pattullo, on behalf of the company made a suitable reply.
PECULIAR   ACCIDENT
HUNDREDS FACING STARVATION
Thirteen Railway Engineers
Are Buried Alive.
Vast Tracts In Japan Flooded.���
Thousand Houses In Shidzukoa
Submerged.���Trams Are Stalled
And    Passengers    Without    Food
(Special to the Optimist)
Tokio, August 11th��� Reports show a
shocking increase in the number of
disasters and fatalities on the Island of
Hondo owing to the continued heavy
rains. The region between Yokohama and
Tokio is a sea of mud with several
villages under water and hundreds of
people facing starvation.
Two trains are stalled near Kanaya
ancl the passengers have been without
food for two days. There are three hundred of them and they are beyond the
reach   of   rescuers   from    Horinouchi.
There are six hundreds refugees in a
Buddist temple here.
Thirteen engineers were caught in a
slide as they were rushing to rescue the
passengers from a partly submerged
train, and all of them were buried alive.
At Shidzukoa over a thousand houses
are submerged.
The city of Takasaki is a veritable
lake.
Part of this city is under water and
there is much suffering.
The rains continue although clear
weather has been forecasted.
THE LEVINE CASE
Locomotive   Suddenly   Dumped   on
Deck of Steamer Conveyor
ONE VIEW OF LAURIER
New   York   Journal   Hails   Has   as
Friend to United States
On this side of the line they would call
Wilfrid Laurier an insurgent, and a
dried-up old man with a cigar cocked
in one corner of his mouth would be
making funny speeches about him off on
the prairies. In Canada he is Right Hon.
Sir. Wilfrid Laurier, Premier of the
Dominion and the biggest man in it.
Just now he is swinging round the
western circle, dedicating wheat fields
and launching bridges.and hammering his
ideas of political progress into the ear
of crowds that cheer themselves black
in the face at the thought of reciprocity
with the United States, a lower tariff
and friendly relations with all the world.
Now and then some one calls Wilfrid
Laurier an annexationist but without
authority. The most he will say is to
declare his friendship.
"I am a great admirer of the American
people," he said the other day. "One of
their marked characteristca is an ability
to look after Number one. I propose
that we do the same."��� Sew York Globe.
The Conveyor was loading one of the
dinky shunting engines for use up the
line this morning, when the crane broke
down under the weight and dumped the
engine right on top of the capstan of the
steamer. No one was injured. The engine weighs over ten tons and a bigger
crane was at once obtained to lift it
from the capstan. The Developer was
sent out this morning in place of the
Conveyor.
POSTAL FREE TRADE
Mr. Henniker Heaton Urges Abolition
Of Frontier Regulations
Editor the Optimist :-
Dear Sir,���The following letter which
explains itself was promised insertion
in yesterday's issue of the Empire, but
as it failed to appear I will thank you
to give it space in your paper.
Yours truly,
A.  S. Levine.
Editor, The Evening Empire:-
Dear Sir,���In regard to the article
on your front page of yesterday's issue,
entitled "Levine Case, A Fine Kettle
of Fish", I would like to point out one
or two errors.
Your statement that the assets are
not ascertained is incorrect, as the same
paper that shows the liabilities shows
the assets also.
Also, the company w^re not partners
at will at the start as you state. A
partnership agreement was drawn up
and signed by the partners, and the declaration registered in Prince Rupert
before a dollar's worth of goods was
bought by the company,or by any one
��� on its behalf. It follows that there was
no organization of the company, nor
any arrangement made as to the taking
over of the partnership assets.
Further, Mr. Levine was representing
himself at the creditors' meeting, and
not the Stewart Mercantile Company,
which was represented by the assignee,
Sheriff John Shirley. Naturally he
did not make any proposition.
I am under the impression that the
only "heat" in the matter is the hot air
that has been given your reporter.
The whole article seems to have been
written with the intention of influencing certain criminal proceedings now
in progress, and you have been long
enough in the field of journalism to
estimate the propriety of articles of
that description.
Yours truly,
Adv't. A. S. Levine.
London.August 6.���Mr. Henniker Heaton is urging the appointment of an
"Imperial and foreign postmaster,"
whose first duty should be to convene a meeting of European postmasters-general with a view to abolishing
the political frontiers for postal telegraph and wireless communications between the countries of the world.
DASHED INTO CROWD
Famous Aviator Seriously Injured in
Flight on Atlantic Coast
(Special to the Optimist
Asbury Park, N. J., August 11.���
Walter Brookins, the noted aviator,
was seriously injured this morning when
his machine broke and fell. It dashed
down among the crowd of spectators
and seven of them were hurt.
GO TO THE COURTS
If You Want to Know Whether or
Not  the  Mayor  is  Disqualified
In reference to Ratepayers' letter in
the Optimist last night mentioning
Mayor Stork's connection with a contract to make ballot boxes for the city,
the mayor told the council last night
that if the writer was sufficiently interested to know whether or not that
contract would disqualify him there was
a court of law that could be applied to.
Spokane Beats Vancouver
Vancouver, August 11.���(Special)���
The results of the league games played
yesterday was as follows:
Vancouver two, Spokane five.
Seattle one, Tacoma two.
CRIPPEN'S TALE
IS VERIFIED
ANOTHER EXAMINATION OF THE
REMAINS OF THE WOMAN
Found that Woman Had Undergone Operation Before Death.���
Prisoner Intimated in Confession
Wife Died  From Operation.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, August 11.���Experts who
have been again examining the body found
in the basement of the Crippen home,
today asserted that it is that of a woman
who had undergone an operation before
death.
This corroborates a rumor cabled
by the Quebec correspondent of the
London Chronicle that Crippen intimated to the Canadian officials that
his wife had died from the effects of an
operation performed by him.
The experts found nothing from which
the identity of the remains could be
established.
GRADE   SIX   AVENUE
Petition   From   Ratepayers   Asking
That the Work Be Done
A petition was presented to the council
last night calling for thc grading of
Sixth avenue between Fulton street
and Summit avenue. The petition was
referred to the Streets Committee
This is a long stretch of street and a
big piece of work but if the pro|>erty
owners are prepared to pay for it they
will no doubt be granted their request.
They have followed the proper course
in asking for the work to be done.
COST OF GRAND
TRUNK STRIKE
COMPANY CAME OUT WINNERS
IN   FINANCIAL   SENSE
Trainmen Sustained Loss of Hundred
Wages.���Company Saves Over
Million By Conceding Demands
Of Strikers.
Toronto, Aug., 3.���The settlement of
the strike is received here with much
satisfaction by all classes. The union
element is pleased at what is regarded
as a decided advantage gained by the
men in having the Grand Trunk concede a mileage rate of pay instead of
a monthly wage, and the promise of
the standard rate in a year's less time
than was formerly offered. THE  PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

BANDIT HANEY.
IS ARRESTED
MAN    WHO    SHOT    CONSTABLE
DECKER AT ASHCROFT
Recalls the Thrilling Man Hunt of a
Year Ago Last June and Detaila
Of the Robbery of Canadian Pacific Express.
(Special to the Optimist)
Dillon, Mont., August 10.���The bandit
arrested here yesterday is stated to be
William Haney, the man who held up
the Canadian Pacific express and afterward shot and killed Police Constable
Decker at Ashcroft. This was a year
ago last June, and the hunt for the man
and his accomplice at the time was one
of the most thrilling in the history of
railroad hold-ups.
Posses were out after them all over the
country. The two men were seen several
times and in the course of fleeing from
the police they stole rifles, horses and
boats. They were landing at Ashcroft
when Policeman Decker attempted to
arrest them. Haney shot the constable
and again made his escape.

THE PAY-ROLL
The city is' now paying in salaries something like $50,000 a year; over one-
third of the taxes. The Optimist endeavored to secure the exact information from
the city officials but was refused the figures by the order of Mayor Stork.
Evidently Prince Rupert is to pay immense salaries and big pay-rolls without
knowing where the money is going to. Is that not pretty coarse work for a new administration in a new city. If the tax-payers are not to know what salaries are paid
and who get them what is likely to become of the proposed million dollar loan?
The Optimist believes that under such conditions the council will not be able to
find a bank or corporation to make the loan. There is only one way to prevent
rake-offs and that is to let the public in on all civic business. jf-
Here is the list of city officials which the Optimist got from the city clerk. The
mayor refused to allow him to furnish the figures. The public can size it up and
guess where the money is going.

of the month and all of the cabinet
ministers will be in the capital again
September 8 to take up the work of
preparing for the next session of parliament, which will probably begin about
the middle of November. The question
of the proposed recoprocity treaty
with the United States will be one of
the first questions to be considered by
the cabinet.
In October a conference between
Washington and Ottawa cabinet ministers will be held, but it is unlikely
that there will be a general tariff revision pending the inquiry to be instituted by the tariff commission whereof
Sir Wilfrid made mention in the west.

sjss THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST
ilSHOP DU VERNET'S CHARGE
delivered to the Anglican Synod at Prince
Rupert on Tuesday
j Reverend Brethren  and Brethren of
the Laity:-
| While we have met as a Synod in this
hurch Hall on three former occasions
is the first time that we extend to
nu a welcome to the City of Prince
When we met here three years
to Prince Rupert was little more than
'railway surveyors' camp with a few
jiacks and tents, now it is an incorpora-
city  with  many   miles of streets
Ipidly filling up with houses.    It is a
fci-port with many lines of steamships
ling here, and already railway trains
|re making their way up the Skeena
ver bringing nearer and nearer to those
the interior the hope of easy trans-
ortation. Assembled here in this city
Ihich is destined to become a great
ketropolis, the centre of a mighty
jevelopment in the northern half of this
fovince, we of the Diocese of Caledonia,
t embraces the same region as mem-
ers of that historic church which be-
un Christian work in this neighbour-
id fifty years ago, must feel the thril-
{ interest of the present moment as
watch the unfolding of events and
ndeavor to do our part in laying the
joundation for the moral and spiritual
jvelfare of a great nation in the West.
In reviewing the year since last we
net as a Synod we must first mention
ome of the losses which the Church has
lustained.    Last May the whole empire
felt the shock of the unexpected death
him who while occupying the highest
isition in the realm was ever a loyal
nember of the Church of England. King
Edward Vll  will long live in  history
the great Peace Maker of his age.
In this Province the Church of England
has met with the loss of a Bishop who
py his fidelity to duty and consistent
christian character endeared himself
) all who knew him. As I was an understate of King's College, Windsor.N.S.
H'lien Dr. Dart was President of that
niversity, I felt the death of the late
Jlishop of New Westminster as a personal
ss.
This Diocese has been called upon to
nourn the loss of a devoted layman who
laboured with marked ability as principal o( the Indian Industrial   School
Metlakatla for nearly twenty years.
Many of our native young men will
remember with gratitude the debt they
owe to Mr. J. R, Scott.
Not only by death but also by re-
noval we have suffered loss as a diocese.
|R"v. M. H. Jackson who for nearly
Itwo years did most efficient work at
I Atlin was obliged on account of his
I wife's health to leave us and take work
J where he could be near expert medical
I advice.
We have also met with serious loss
j'-y fire.    The beautiful new church at
Essington only opened by me a year ago
i last  month  was totally destroyed  by
j 'ire early in the morning of June 8th.
This second loss of a church building
in less than eighteen months has been a
staggering blow to the Rev. W. F. Rush-
brook, but thanks to the S. P. C. K.
insisting upon  a larger  insurance before giving a grant we shall be enabled
to build a smaller church with the insurance   money   and   local   assistance,
in the way of labour . given, without
appealing  for  outside  help.
from our losses let us now turn to
our gains. It was my privilege on St.
James' Day to take part in the consecration of Rev. A. U. De Pencier as
Bishop of New Westminster. Having
laboured in the same diocese with him
a�� a neighbouring clergyman for some
years, I feel that the church of this
province has been greatly strengthened
"y the promotion to so high a position
<>f one so familiar with Canadian church
life und so vigorous in action. The
Southern boundary of this Diocese in the
northern boundary of the Diocese of
side of the river at Fort George is in our
Diocese, the other in his. As neighbouring bishops I feel sure we shall
work well together.
As Prince Rupert is not only a growing
city but also a convenient centre from
which to work out-lying missions, I
am most thankful to be able to announce
that I have secured the assistance of
two clergymen���Rev. T. C. Des Barres
B. A. formerly curate in charge of St.
Jude's, Nottingham, and Rev. W. G.
James, B. A. formerly rector of Pincher
Creek, Alberta. While not neglecting
the centre but giving it men of different
gifts we shall be able to do more in the
way of ministering to the small settlements which are springing up in the
neighbourhood.
Ever since I came to this Diocese
I have had on my conscience the abandoned Mission to the Stickine Indians.
There were two difficulties in the way
of reopening this mission���the man and
the money. Rev. Frank Palgrave, as
a holiday trip, revisited this Mission
last summer and brought me such an
appealing account of the Indians still
loyal to the Church of England, still
waiting for us to send them a missionary
that I could not refrain from doing my
utmost. The way seemed to open
wonderfully���the Indian department
promised a grant for the Day School
at Tahl-tan, kind friends in England
made a generous donation and Rev.
T. P. W. Thorman accepted my call
tj return with his son from England
and reorganize the work which he laid
down on account of his wife's declining
health seven years ago. Aftei a dangerous
trip up the Stickine in a gasoline launch
he and his son arrived at Telegraph Creek
on June 9th and a few days after reached
the Indian village of Tahl-Tan, where
he found things which he had left in the
mission house seven years before untouched���a tribute to the honesty and
loyalty of the natives. He opened the
day school at once and soon had fifteen
scholars in attendance. It is a matter
of rejoicing that our church and mission
house at Tahl-Tan are once more in
use and that the Indians who have
waited so patiently are again being
ministered to by one who can talk their
language.
The church has advanced during this
year not only in the way of more clergymen being brought into the diocese but
also in the way of new missions being
opened.
The transfer of Rev. Wm. Hogan
from Port Simpson to Masset has placed
at the entrance to Masset Inlet one
eminently adapted to minister to the
settlers who are beginning to fringe
that remarkable water-way into the
heart of Graham Island. New Masset
has been given regular Sunday services
and the congregation there are ready
for a church building.
A'few months ago Stewart was only
a hamlet of half a dozen log houses.
To-day it is a town of about 2,000 inhabitants. We have there a church
and a neat parsonage with Rev. W. E.
Collison in charge of this new mission.
Forced.on account of the railway to
tear down our church and mission house
at Inverness we have built on a better
site a building consisting of church with
rooms attached which the Rev. J. H.
Keen has found most serviceable during
the fishing season.
Another step in advance which we as
a Church have taken this year has been
the incorporation of the Synod of the
Diocese. While the Bishop has for some
time past been a "a Corporation Sole"
to hold church property in trust, yet
with the growth of our church work it
will be found mere, satisfactory to have
church property vested in the Synod.
This can now be done under the act of
Incorporation of  March  10th,  1910.
Turning to matters which affect the
that a forward step has been taken within the last few weeks in the way of preparing for some kind of provincial organization. While I have expressed myself on former occasions as in favor of
as simple an organization as possible
it seems that under the constitution
of the general synod there is no other way
of our organizing than in the form of a
provincial synod which while safeguarding our Diocesan Rights will
allow us to take united action as a church
in British Columbia. The chief work
assigned to a provincial Synod by the
General Synod is the subdividing of
Dioceses and the appointing of bishops.
Naturally this vast missionary diocese
will be the region most affected by this
if we agree to the formation of a provincial Synod, therefore in the draft
which has met with the approval of
delegates from the three other dioceses
in this province who were in Vancouver
July 26th, and which I hope to submit
for your consideration at this session of
Synod, a clause is inserted which will
protect the interests of a missionary
diocese founded by a missionary society.
By resolution of General Synod the
question  of  the   formation  of   an   ec-
upon which we are endeavoring to build.
The Church throughout the Dominion
of Canada by resolution of the General
Synod has agreed upon a common
standard known as "The Preliminary
Examination for Holy Orders". All the
theological colleges o�� whatever type
of churchmanship accept this, and the
ground covered in the different courses
of study is practically the same. There
is a common Board of Examiners for
Divinity Degrees with representatives
upon this Board from all the theological colleges.
Further in this common standard
set by the church as a whole there is
a frank recognition of the different
schools of thought in the church. This
is done in the way of alternate textbooks. Still further if a candidate chooses
certain text-books, as allowed, the examiner is a member of the Board in
sympathy with the teaching contained
therein. Surely it is an easy step which '���
must commend itself to all broad-1
minded churchmen to allow, in a college
professing to be a provincial institution,
the teaching upon controversial subjects which is embodied in authorized I
alternate   text-books   to   be   given   by
clesiastical Province of British Columbia professors in sympathy with the views
depends upon whether the dioceses in- i embodied therein. Such teachers on
volved "desire to form such". As we controversial subjects being supported
hope to have another session of our synod ! by voluntary contributions of intere-

Auxiliary.
A month from today our brethren in
Nova Scotia will be celebrating on the
historic spot the 200th anniversary of
the first Anglican service in Canada.While
we cannot be present in person we can
in spirit stretch forth our hand from the
Pacific to the Atlantic across the vast
Dominion   of   Canada   and   give   the
Diocese of Nove Scotia in the extreme
east the heartfelt greetings of the Diocese
of Caledonia in the far west.
"We   are   not   divided,
All one body we ;
One in hope and doctrine,
One  in  charity."
Christian love above everything else
is the  bond which  binds us together.
May we as a Synod  in all our  deli-'
berations feel more than ever that while
there are diversity of gifts and differences
of opinion we are all working for the one
end  under  the  leadership  of  the  one
master, Christ our King, to whom we
would once more bend the knee and take
the oath of allegiance that we may the
better serve under the.banner of the Cross
our day and generation in the uplifting
of humanity.
LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
*<-w Westminster.     For example one church in this province I have to report
chrystalized. Surely no words can express
the   importance   of   starting   right.
The solution suggested by these words
may under God's blessing yet be accepted. As my words upon this vital
question will be read far and wide by
those interested on both sides not only
in this. province and Eastern Canada
but also in England, I shall state even
at the risk of being somewhat lengthy
the position which I have taken. It will
be remembered that this Synod at its
last session confirmed the stand which
I then took by passing the following
resolution:- "That this Synod declines
to recognize any theological college as
being for the whole church of this province without this Synod having due
representation on the governing body of
the same."
This was at once met by the supporters
of St. Mark's College offering to rescind
their provisional constitution and give
this Diocese proper representation. After
consultation with out diocesan delegates
Rev. J. H. Keen and myself, this principle was embodied in the new constitution. There yet remained the still more
difficult question of a representative
on the teaching staff which was mentioned
by me as a second matter of vital importance. This led me to suggest to the
authorities of St Mark's College a scheme
of an affiliated school in which lectures
on controversial subjects would be given
by professors in sympathy with the
line of teaching imparted. Not being
asked to act for those in Vancouver who
were promoting Bishop Latimer College
my suggestion took the form of an affiliated Diocesan institution taking the
students of the final year for lectures on
Ecclesiology, or the Doctrine of the
Church, the Ministry, and the Sacraments, but I made this suggestion, which
was accepted by St. Mark's College,
with the earnest hope that it might open
the door for the affiliation of Bishop
Latimer College on similar lines.
A few days ago it was my privilege
to meet in Vancouver the promoters
of both colleges with our Diocesan delegate, Mr. G. H. Cowan, M. P. present
to support me. Negotiations are still
in progress and no formal action has
yet been taken but I believe there is
good hope for at least a measure of cooperation. Perhaps I could not be doing
the cause of truth and harmony greater
service than to outline the foundation
1 tent an influence as lecturing. A boarding house for the students is not a vital
part of a Provincial College. The simple
expedient of two residences, each with
its own Dean meets the objection.
The  outcome  would  be  this:-  One
"Anglican Theological College of British
Columbia"   affiliated   with   the   Provincial   University,   with   a   handsome
building   on   the   University   grounds,
containing lecture rooms, library, reading room,    convocation hall etc.    All
lectures to be delivered in this college, j
with two adjacent residences "St. Mark's
Hostel"  with  a  warden  and   "Bishop
Latimer Hall" with a principal,  both
men being not only deans in residence
but  members of  the  college staff  of.
lecturers.    All students would register
at the one college but would be free to
choose their residence, and alternate set I
of lecturer on certain subjects.    There
would be a common board of examiners
as outlined and  a diploma issued  by!
the   one   college.
If untrammelled by the associations
of the East we in the West can at the
very foundation of things agree heartily
upon some such broad and united policy
BS this and escape the scandal of two j
rival colleges we shall be setting an example to the whole church in Canada
which will redound to the glory of God
and the advancement of His Kingdom
of Truth and Love.
In regard to the Indian Land Question i
I take the ground that the Indians arc
wards of the Dominion government
and that if. they have any grievances'
it is for the Dominion Government to
take up* their cause with the Provincial
Government and see that they get their
rights. I deem it unwise and unneces-1
sary to stir up the minds of the rank and
file of the Indian bands throughout the
country by circulating petitions and asking them to raise money for lawyers to
fight their battles. I am glad to say that
no clergyman in this Diocese has done
this. As a church we have appealed to
the Dominion Government and received
assurance that earnest efforts arc being
made to obtain a decision which will be
recognized by all as final.
In facing the future we us u Diocese
while doing our most in the way of self-
support through contributing to our
Diocesan Mission Fund, must of necessity look for assistance in our pioneer
work from the church in Eastern Canada
and in the Mother Land. We ure deeply

LONG DISTANCE
MOTOR RACE
ONE OF COMPETITORS IN RACE
PUTS   IN   HERE
The "Limit" Probably the Speediest
Cruiser on the Coaat.���Many Inspect the Vesael.���Race Starts
From   Ketchikan   Next   Monday.
As a result of the invitation of the
Publicity Club to the Pacific Motor
Boat association for the boats in the long
distance race from Ketchikan to Vancouver to call here, one put in yesterday
and some of the other entries for the
race may do so today or tomorrow. The
start for the race is to take place next
Monday, and there are about fifteen
entries.
The motor which put in here is called
"Limit", and it is supposed to represent
the limit of highest speed yet reached
in such craft. A large number of people
made an inspection of Limit, and there
is no doubt it awakened a decided interest among those who know the
variety of pleasant excursions that can
be made in smooth water all around
Prince Rupert. The Limit flies the house
flag of the International Power Boat
association, and visitors were courteously
received by the acting secretary and
originator of the association, F. M.
Foulser. He was secretary but resigned
in favor of E. L. Kinman, former owner
of the Limit, who is now operating a
quartz mine he has bonded at Ninemile
Mountain. The present owners of the
boat are A. W. Le Page, Wm. R. Marriott and Wm. Fellows, who were all on
board, the other members of the party
being Mrs. Ed. Allen, Miss Anna Worth-
ington and Mrs. Viola Nollain.
Although the little boat is but fifty
feet long with a beam of ten and a half
feet, the whole party is comfortably
accommodated, so cunningly is space economized. Forward is the dining saloon,
neatly fitted with sideboard and other
conveniences. Next the galley, with
cooking range on the one side and butler's
pantry and carving table on the other.
Aft are two state 100ms with bunks.
Amidships is the secret of the fame of the
fast cruiser, the Ralaco engines of fifty
horse power.
Some idea of the speed these engines
produce may be guessed fiom the fact
that in the long d stance race in which
it was last a competitor it was handicapped by a minute for each mile. This
in a run of sixty miles. In another, the
distance of which was 231 miles, the
handicap was seven hours.
Secretary Foulser says the association has had this Alaska long distance
race in mind for two years, and that it
is certain to create a great interest in all
aquatic circles. The idea of it is the ;dea
for which the association was formed���
to bring to a popular realization the
value of the motor boat for the purposes
of pleasure and commerce. These races
would probably be semi-annual affairs
and each to be run between two points.
The association had followed the course
of Prince Rupert with interest, and one
of the early races to come would certainly have this port as its objective
point. This was the finest water on the
coast for such boats and their trip up
here had been much enjoyed by the
whole party.
At four o'clock this morning the Limit
skimmed away with the speed of a fish
hawk. She will not know what her
handicap is until the morning of the race.
The visit of the Limit awakened so
general an interest here that the Optimist
has arranged to receive the results of
the race from Ketchikan to the Vancouver
yacht club boathouse reported by wire.

Building Inspector McNeil made the
following report re explosives :-
According to notice received from the
City Clerk I have visited every place
where any blasting is neing done and
found in some cases where dynamite
and caps are kept in empty cabins unlocked. I instructed every person using or
handling explosives to keep same under
lock and key so that no person could
have excess to same only the person
doing the blasting. I also instructed
them in regard to covering and blanketing blasts and the penalty imposed by
the by-law for the carelesB handling of
explosives.

Went   Through   Architect   Barker's
Window on Third Avenue
ROYAL CITY GRAFT EXPOSURE
The draftsman in Architect Barker's |
office  over  Westenhaver  Bros.,   office
Third street had a narrow escape yester-,
day.   The contractor blasting the rock
out in front of the Government Agent's J
residence on Second Avenue put off a
charge that was evidently not properly-
protected.   A rock the size of a man's <
head first went through Barker's window
passing   just   above   the   draftsman's
head and hit a post on the other side
It made a big dint in the post and had
the  draftsman  not  been  leaning  over
his table he would not known much about
the affair today. The new city by-law
regulating blasting was only registered
yesterday afternoon and in future the
contractors will have to be more particular
A splendid job is being made in front
of Mr. Mullin's home and when finished
it will be very artistic. The caretaker of
the Govt, grounds is a good man and
is making the provincial grounds the
beauty spot of the city. Citizens and
corporations and business firms will
soon follow suit, in fact a number of
private homes are already being fixed
up.

RAID   WAS   A   FAILURE
General Botha Saya Government Is
Still Waiting For Union Progress.���
Advocates Military Training on
Swiaa Basis.
(Special to the Optimist)
Pretoria, S. A., August 12.���General
Botha, in an address he delivered here
last night, said the government was
! still waiting for union progress. He
said it had been suggested that they
adopted military training on the Swiss
basis, but while he favored this he was
willing to abide by the advice of the
British war office on the subject.
The British Government believed that
Bouth Africa should be selfreliant.
Further than this they should do all in
their power to assist the empire which
has given South Africa her freedom
Education , he declared, will be the most
prominent features of the campaign
Durban, S. A., August 12.��� Dr.
1 Jameson, leader of the opposition, in the
course of his speech here said that after
the famous raid it was not intended to
replace the Dutchmen in the government
by British. He at that time carried a
letter which named Luca Meyer as
one of the proposed executive. He declared that the raid, although in itself
a failure, was a step in the right directi
Lands Sold for Taxes Bought In For
Less Than Arrears. -One Aldermen
Quits Council Chamber.���Former
Mayor Keary Involved in Scandal.
(Special to the Optimist)
New Westminster, August 12.���The
last installment of Auditor Cotsworth's
report made as great a sensation as any
of his previous ones. It conclusively
showed that lands allowed to be sold
for taxex were bought in by the owners
at less than the arrears of taxes upon it.
The names and dates and sums were all
given and created great excitement
among the crowd gathered in the council
chamber.
It is simply another stone added to
the pile of evidence of crooked work
that has been unearthed by the expert
auditor, who has carried on his work
undeterred by offers of bribes, intimidation and even physical assault. Alderman Gilley's name was brought into
tha limelight by the report of last night,
Excursion    Sunday
An excursion will be run by the steamer
Chieftain to Metlakatla on Sunday
next, leaving the dock at 1:30 sharp.
Council Meeting
The regular meeting of the city
council will be held tomorrow night at
8 o'clock. Aid. Naden will, it is understood, move that only three meetings
per week be held and that more business
be done in committee.
Colors for the Club
A meeting of the directors of the
Prince Rupert club was held last night
for the purpose of selecting colors for
painting their new building. They had
too many colors to choose from and
as a result nothing has yet been settled,
but it will likely be a dark color with
light trimmings.
and he indignantly left the council
chamber followed by some hooting from
the crowd.
Former Mayor Keary is among those
dire,ctly charged with graft in connection
with the sales of land for unpaid taxes.

(Special to the Optimist)
Rome, August 12.���Salvatore Setta,
a millionaire land-owner, has been kidnapped by brigands. They have communicated with his friends and declare
that unless a ransom of ten thousand
dollars is paid immediately Setta will
be put to death. Quite recently a merchant named Ruina was killed by the
same gang because his ransom was
refused.

on his way to the coast. He has a project
under consideration to bring a thousand

T. Collart has purchased the house
on Eight avenue recently owned and
occupied by E. K. Strathy, late manager
of the Union Bank. Mr. Strathy purchased Mr. Collart's farm in Alberta, the
price being $6000.
Day     Labor
The Optimist has been informed that
the men on the grading at Seventh
street and First avenue are doing more
work than any gang under a contractor.
The object is to show the council that
men working day labor can accomplish
just as much as a gang working for a
contractor.
TOWN BEING DESERTED
Houses    Engulped    By    Reaaon    of
Subterranean   Cave-in
(Special to the Optimist)
Staunton, W. Va., August 12.���This
town is being rapidly deserted owing to
the sudden appearance of gaping holes
in the streets. Three houses have already
been engulphed and others are in a
toppling condition. It is believed that
there must be subterranean passages
under the town, and that the roofs
of these have caved in.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, August 12.���Mayor Gaynor
is resting comfortably although there is
great uneasiness shown by his friends
because of the use of the new radiograph for the purpose of finding a splinter of the bullet, which it is supposed
is lodged over the mouth. Gallagher's
defence will be insanity.
RIOTING AT COLUMBUS
Three  Strike  Breakers   Fatally   Injured By Showera of Stonea
(Special to the Optimist)
Columbus, O., August 12.���The traction strike is not nearly over and there
may be more serious consequences
before it is settled definitely. This
morning a car manned by strike breakers
was run out. It was immediately attacked by strikers and three of the strike
breakers were fatally injured by the
stones thrown by the mob when the
detectives fired their revolvers into the
crowd.

Sunday, Aug Hth, as was announced
from the various pulpits last Sunday,
but will be here on the 21st and also on
the 28th.
PIER   TAKES   FIRE
Visiting Knights Templara Jumped
Into   The    Lake
(Special to the Optimist)
Chicago, August 12.���A grand display of fireworks was given last night
in honor of the visiting Knights Templars.
For their accommodation a pier was
built out over the lake from which they
could watch the fireworks. This pier
caught fire and the celebration narrowly
escaped ending in disaster. Many of
the visitors jumped into the lake but
all were rescued without being injured..
To Store the Big Cargo of Cement
Coming   From   Japan
Foley, Welch and Stewart are building another warehouse right at the rear
of the present structure and along the
tracks. This is intended for the reception
of 4000 tons of cement that will be here
from Japan about the 28th of this month
The cement is for the building of
the bridge across the Skeena river below Hazelton at Mile 180. This will be
a steel structure with piers of concrete.
All the cement and other material will
be taken out of here by train aa far as
the steel extends, so as to shorten the

MAYOR GAYNOR IMPROVES
Will be a Week Before  He   Can Be
Removed With Safety.
Hoboken, August 12.���Complaints are
being made by friends of Mayor Gaynor
that the doctors attending him are unnecessarily reticent in regard to his
condition, and that this is causing his
friends great anxiety. It is believed they
are holding his real condition secret
from the public. It is stated today that
it would be a week before the mayor
could safely be moved.
Gallagher boasted today that he was a
follower of Hearst and did not vote for
Gaynor in the mayoralty contest but
for Hearst.
Kaufman Fight Called Off
Philadelphia, August 12.���(Special)���
The Langford-Kaufman fight has been
called off, owing to the fighters disagreeing over another postponement on account
of rain.
At Melfort, Hon. G. P. Graham remarked that before another five years
had passed, wheat will be shipped to
Liverpool via Hudson Bay. .
It is strange but true that many of
the sign posts on the road to success were
put up by men who were failures.

Dip in, boys, and get a piece of the city money.  The documents will be kept
back from the public.
Not being a blind pig, of course the Optimist has no right to do business during
a Stork regime.
Somebody must be ashamed of that salary list when the mayor refuses tfJ let
it be made public.
An incredible rumor is being circulated to the effect that the city council is
going to start something next week. Five more engineers and six stenographers will
be added to the pay roll.
The Mayor refuses to let the Optimist have certain information at the city
hall but the Optimist knows without applying to the civic officers how many 24
hours spaces have passed since the mayor made his boast about closing the blind pig.
It was stated in the council meeting Wednesday evening that only Provincial
land surveyors were permitted to give street grades to prospective builders. This
may be misunderstood. Anyone qualified can give the grades but only licensed
surveyors can be proceeded against for damages in case of an error.
A live member of the Publicity Club this week issued a printed pamphlet
appeal to the public for their support to this worthy organization. The publication
was issued at his personal expense. This kind of practical boosting is somewhat
different from that of the city council.
The sewer work will be completed as far as Sixth street to-morrow and will
then probably cease for lack of pipe. Thus are the council helping to make a city
pay roll.

appetite returned immediately and he
has never failed to punish a bountiful supply of beefsteak or ham and eggs
every meal. He said that he did not
think he could live through the trial
but he feels better now than ever.
REAL ESTATE GOOD
Brokers Report Several Good Sales
The   Paat   Week
Several real estate men told the Optimist this morning that there has been
a big improvement in the real estate
business the past couple of weeks.
Many deals have been put through and
it only needs the return of the papers
before the details can be published.
So many of the owners as well as the
purchasers reside out of town that it
takes quite a time to close a deal up.
The people who are buying now are
wise as there will be an increase in price
this fall that will mean considerable.
COMMITTED FOR TRIAL
Levine  Charged     With    Obtaining

A. S. Levine again appeared before

that lacrosse is a different proposition

HAS   MOVED   HIS   OFFICE
Mr.  McMaster  Geta  Into  Hia  New
Quartera Acroas the Wharf
Mr. McMaster, the local agent of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, is now in his new
office, which happens to be the first one
occupied in the service of the company
two years ago, when he was agent,
auditor, accountant and a force of clerks
all by himself and even then had more
time to spare than he has now.
The new office is in Warehouse A,
across the dock from his old office,
which has been made the ticket office
of the company. It is a dinky affair for
the local manager of such an important
corporation, but is only intended to be
used until permanent offices are constructed. The site of these will probably
be decided upon while President Hays'
party are here week after next.
The man who told you so only makes
you feel murderous when he reminds
you of it.
The Lone Star state promises to be
the next addition to the Southern dry
belt.

There are a few people in Prince Rupert who have not yet got in on the
Shoe Sale at prices below cost.    We are going to give them another
opportunity.    The Big Sale will be continued until
Saturday, Aug. 20th
For the next nine days we will throw the very best of the stock into the
red barrels. We intend to sell the stock completely out. It will be a
chance you may not get again in months. Don't lose it. You will
make a wise investment by buying all your winter footwear now. It will
pay you bigger profits than real estate.

Showing Up Well-

Progress in Agriculture.
A few prospectors have been finding
their way up the Skeena this summer
and of these John Blume & Fred Roger
have made discoveries that have much
promise. Several claims have been
staked and some good one sample*
brought in. The values are chiefly
silver contained in galena and gray
copper, and compare favorably with
assays obtained in any part of the
district. The claims staked are on both
sides of Babine river, close to the Skeena.
At present they are too far from transportation to be deemed of any great
value but if a railway line is ever built
up the Skeena to reach Groundhog
mountain coal, what is thought to be
an extensive district would be at once
opened up.

Many   Coal   Claims    Located
Prospecting for coal in Bulkley valley
is being carried on more extensively
this year than ever before. Many new
seams have been found, some of them
reaching over ten feet in width in places
where for years it has been considered
the seams were too narrow to be profitably mined. Work is being carried
on vigorously and before fall it will be
possible to tell something of the ultimate
worth of the new finds.

with the streak on the hanging wall
side, makes nearly three feet of high
grade ore now exposed.
Big    Price    For    Farm    Land
An offer of twenty-five dollars an
acre for a tract of 940 acres of land near
Hazelton was made and refused one
day this week, which goes to show that
present holders of land in this country
have every confidence in the future.
Native Silver From Babine Lake
Ben Severson, a prospector who has
been around Babine lake this summer,
came to Hazelton Thursday with samples
of ore from new finds close to the lake.
Some of the pieces were plentifully
sprinkled with native silver, occurring
as flakes and nuggets in the quartz.
Other pieces were largely composed
of what passes for gray copper. He is
sending samples away for assays and
upon the receipt of returns will be able
to tell more of the value of his claims.

TROUBLES   ENOUGH
"So you don't want to vote!"said the

"Gracious, no!" replied Mrs. Mc-

It's a Magic Number
Multiply any number by
nine, add the sum and it
makes nine:
9 times 5-45, 4&5-9
9 times 298 - 2682; add these
figures and you get 18, 1 &
8-9, and so it goes. No
matter what you try this
magic nine turns up again.
The reason, however, that
we selected nine for our
'phone number is because
nine is an easy number to
remember. We want you
to associate the number
nine with our store. You'll
find it a magic number when
you want to use it It will

Sixth International Congress To Be
Held At Washington Next Week.���
Five Hundred Delegates Representative   of   Forty   Nations.
Washington, August lO.-'-The Sixth
international congress of Esperanto
will begin at Washington on Sunday
next. Meetings will be held at which
the only language spoken will be Esperanto. "As You Like It" will be
given in the woods in Esperanto. The
500 delegates from the forty nations
to be represented will attend a game
of ball at the American League Park.
All the rules will be in Esperanto. Some
of the decisions will be announced in it.
Friends of Esperanto say it has
been making progress in the United
States. It has been taken up by scientists, linguists, teachers, public men
and commercial houses. At its last
session the Maryland Legislature passed
a law perrititting the study of Esperanto
in the public schools.
Owing to the use of the term "universal language" many have been misled into the belief that it was intended to substitute Esperanto for all
other languages, That this is erroneous
will be emphasized at the congress.
Its author, Dr. L. L. Zamenhof of Warsaw
Poland, will first in English and then in
Esperanto tell what he had in mind
when he prepared the first text book
and what associations all over the world
have been advocating them since. He
will point out that Esperanto is meant to
be a language to be used at ail
peace conferences, between business
men in different countries and in all
cases in which a common language is
lacking.
The teaching of the language in the
public schools of this country and
abroad will be the principal topic during the congress. It is believed by
the leaders that through the children
in the schools success is to be obtained.
It is declared by the advocates of the
language that in the study of English
and foreign tongues the knowledge of
Esperanto will be of more value than
Katin or Greek. Missionary work to
this end will be planned.
Another thing that will be emphasized at the meeting is the use of
the language to bring nations and
races closes together. It is pointed
out by Ivy Kellerman, Ph. D., author
of several works on Esperanto, that'
Esperanto will  help  to  bind  nations
together and dispel the doubt with
which races' regard each other. She
will deliver an address along these
lines, pointing out the difficulty of
travel abroad under old conditions
and the ease with the use of Esperanto by many foreigners.
While the congress will not be convened until Sunday, an informal reception and concert will be given Saturday night, August 13, at the Arlington Hotel. All the vocal exercises will
be in Esperanto.
On Sunday morning church services
will be held in the Episcopal and Catholic
ehurches. The Rev. James L. Smiley
of Annapolis and the Rev. Paul Hoffman of Baltimore will preach. The
sermons will be in the new tongue.
In the evening there .will be a concert, the vocal parts being repeated
in Esperanto.

POLICE   COURT

There was something doing in the
police court yesterday and the
magistrate collected $48 from four
persons. The first two were a couple of

their cabins to get a drink of whiskey.
The supply was very limited aad they
got mixed up in a scrap. They were
fined $5.00 and costs each, or ten days.
They bbth paid.
Two girls from Comox avenue also
got too much corn juice and they had
a scrap. Both pleaded guilty and were
fined $15 and costs.   They settled also.

Atlin, B. C-, August 7.���Capt. Alexander arrived yesterday from the Engineer mine with the first gold brick
produced on the property. The weight
of the brick is twenty pounds eight
ounces, the product of eight hundred
pounds of rock, four hours' run of the
two-stamp mill. This is considered the
record run of the world. It is esti
mated that the brick represents only
sixty per cent of the value of the rock.
The mine has been working since
January and about two hundred tons
of rock have been taken out, which will
average $150 per ton. Three tons of
selected rock will go six to ten thousand dollars per ton. These are conservative estimates.
Numerous leads have been opened
up, all showing good values. 'After discovering values on the surface the
leads were tapped by tunnels at a
depth of four hundred and fifty feet,
which demonstrates the continuance of
the .values through the entire body
and proves the mine to be one of tbe
richest, if not the richest in the world.
The owners intend to erect a hundred stamp mill at an early date, for
which purpose Capt. Alexander expects to leave shortly for England.
Particulars of the mine have not heretofore been made public owing to possible litigation, all likelihood of which
is now at an end.
The Engineer group was one of the
first discoveries of gold bearing quartz
made in what is now the Conrad and
Windy Arm mining district. It was made
by engineers running the surveys for the]
White Pass railway in 1898, and sone of
the rich looking ore was brought to
Skagway. There a company was formed,
a million dollar company at one dollar
per share. The first stock was issued at
ten cents and after a time, as the company got into litigation with the owners,
it could be bought for any old price.
The property was tied up until last
fall, and the report above is merely
a verification of what the rock promised
in its early days.
