Is Really Seeking Advice of
Great Britain
[Believed In Rome That Spain's
Severance of Diplomatic Relations
With Vatican Foreshadows Downfall   of   Spanish   Dynasty.
through   Rambouillet  this  morning.
DR.    CRIPPEN
CONFESSED
HAS |
MLLE. LENEVE TELLS HER STORY
(Special to the Optimist.)
Paris, August 3.���With the streets
teeming with Spanish exiles, extreme precautions are being taken by the French
authorities to guard against any attack
upon King Alfonso, Queen Victoria and
their children when they arrived at the
Elysce Palace as the guests of President
Failleres.   It  is  reported ' they  passed
London, August 3.��� It is officially
stated that although King Alfonso left
his ministers a free hand to deal with the
pressing problems before the government
when he left, he really comes to England
seeking advice as to the probable action
of the foreign office in regard to his break
with the Vatican.
Rome, August 3.��� The mutual recall
of Monsignor Vico, papal nuncio to the
Spanish court, immediately following
that of Ambassador Ojeda by King Alfonso, means a complete severance of all diplomatic relations between the Vatican
and the Spanish court, and the open rupture is believed here to foreshadow the
downfall  of  the  Spanish  dynasty.
LAND GRABBERS BUSY
I All the Land Taken Up Along Linr
Of   Railway   to   Aldermere
W. H. Dempster, the able assistant
of Mr. Pope on the right of way, came in
Monday from Aldermere on his way to
Victoria. He says that all the land that
is worth anything, along the line between here and Aldermere has been
taken up, and for sections back in some
places. He spoke strongly on the subject
of the land grabbers, men who get possession of large tracts of land and hold
them   in   an   unproductive   state   for
speculative   purposes,   and   thinks   the
government ought to dispose of no land
nithout  a  proviso  that  it  should  be
pmmediately improved.
Aldermere   is   the   terminus   of   the
Ihundred and twenty-seven mile section
rom Kitselas, the contract for which was
et last fall. He says the railway builders
lave made good progress in that section
[considering the scarcity of labor.    The
���contractors could handle many more men
pf they could get them.
Aldermere valley is rapidly filling
up with the better class of settlers,
wen who mean business and will make
the land produce all it is possible for it to
produce. The government has completed a fine wagon road from Hazel
ton, and forty men are now at work on
it making good the bad places that have
developed. He sees a great future for
agriculture in the Aldermere valley.
FOR UNIVERSAL PEACE
London    Times    on    Sir    Wilfrid's
Suggested  Peace Celebration
(Special to the Optimist)
London, August 3.���Referring to the
suggestion of Sir Wilfrid Laurier the
celebration of a century of peace between
Great Britain and the United States,
the Times this morning says the empire
and the United States can count between
them one hundred and thirty millions
of one European race, and in the expression of their desire lies the world's
best hopes of peace.

New York, August 3.���The time for

ALD. MdNTYRE HAS QUESTIONS
Why
Was Second Avenue
Graded First
Long Discussion Over Engineer's
Report and How to Proceed .With
The Work.���Original Plan Still
Holds Good.
Aid. Mclntyre displayed something
of an inquisitive nature at the council
meeting last night when he asked why
Second avenue was to be graded first,
in preference to First avenue, or Third
"venue. He received an explanation
from the mayor but he was not satisfied
with that. Aid. Lynch also gave him a
reason for not doing Third avenue first.
Inquisitive   Alderman
Aid. Mclntyre asked for information
as to why work should be started on
Second avenue first instead of First
avenue or Third. He could not understand  any  particular  reason  for  this.
The mayor stated that on Second
avenue there were sewer and water
works already in and the engineer could
get out those plans more quickly.
Aid. Mclntyre said there were exactly the same water works and sewer
mains on Third avenue as on Second,
so that that argument fell flat.
Aid. Lynch said that one thing holding
up Third avenue a little, was that a
petition had been received for altering
a portion of the Btreet grade. The work
could hardly proceed until that was
settled.
A long discussion took place on
whether the council could advertise a
portion of section one or whether they
had to advertise the whole section as a
local improvement .district. The latter
course is the only one that can be
pursued unless the original idea of section
one as a local improvement district is
abandoned. To advertise Second avenue
alone would bring forth protests from all
other streets and the object would be
defeated. It may take a little longer
to advertise the whole thing, but by
taking a little chance on only a few
protests being entered the preliminary
work can proceed concurently with
the preparation of the plans, and will
be ready in a few weeks for the contractors to start.
The engineer's report and specifications were read to the council again

(Special to The Optimist.)
Quebec, August 3, 2.05 p. m. ���
That Dr. Crippen has confessed
and told the whole story of the
murder of his wife is intimated
by Inspector Dow. There seems
to be no doubt of this, although
the Scotland Yard man refuses
to discuss the details of the alleged confession.
j Inspector Dow Says It Establishes Her Innocence.

PEARL EYE OF
GREAT BUDDA
SEARCHER   FOR    IT   HAS   MYSTERIOUSLY DISAPPEARED
Powerful Influence Attributed to
The Sacred Jewel.���Believed Young
Englishman Has Been Captured
By Hindus and Perhaps Murdered.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, August 3.���Captain Adams
of Hereford, England has mysteriously
dropped out of sight while in search for
the mysterious pearl stolen from the eye
of the large image of Budda during the
Sepoy revolt. This pearl is super-
stitiously believed by the Hindoos to
carry the fate of the Indian Empire,
and that whoever has in possession can
work the empire's weal or woe. They
believe the possessor must be an enemy
of the race from the present state of
affair in their country.
Captain Adams came here from England a few weeks ago with Reginald
Schenick, who claims to be the direct
personal representative of the Ranee
Hyed Rabad. Adams was last heard
from in Boston, from which point he
wired to Schenick that he was close on
the track of the missing pearl.
The police have sent descriptions
of the man all over the country. Schenick
says they have been shadowed by
Hindoos from England, and he believes
his friend is being held captive by them
or has been murdered.
A large party of Hindoos was at Seattle three weeks ago, having come d.rect
from their native land in seach of the
highly-valued jewel.
EARE   GREYS   OPINION.
Lord   Crewe   Quotes   It    In   House
Of Lords On Oath Bill.
(Special to Optimist.)
London, August 3rd.���In moving the
second reading of the Declaration Bill in
the House of Lords last night, Lord Crewe
referred to the fact that Earl Grey, long
before going to Canada, took an interest
in the question before the house, and said
that two and a half million of people in
Canada and Australia awaited with anxiety the decision of the peers and the
settlement of the question.
Leading London Solicitor Undertakes Crippen's Defence.���He Demands Positive Proof or Immediate Release of Prisoner
ASHMAN COAL MINES
To  Develope   Fifteen   Square   Miles
On    Bulkley   River
(Special to the Optimist)
London, August 3.���Arthur Newton,
who cabled Dr. Crippen that he would
undertake his defence, is a prominent
London solicitor and has been connected with many famous criminal trials
The Scotland Yard officials and Mr Newton are already at loggerheads as to the
identity of the body. They declare they
have positive proof that the body discovered is that of Mrs Crippen, but refuse to
disclose the nature of this proof. Newton
demands either the production of this
proof or the release of his client.
Mr Newton is said to have been work
ing quietly in the interests of Crippen for
some time, and declares he has secured
information which goes to prove that Mrs
Crippen is alive.
Quebec, August 3.���Inspector Dow,
of Scotland Yard, has had several talks
with Mile Leneve and stated this morning that she is entirely innocent of any
share in the murder of Mrs. Crippen.
To a representative of the Montreal
Press the inspector said: "She has told
me her whole story and it is amply
sufficient to clear her. The detectives
are working in London to prove her
statements. When I examined the girl
she broke down completely and told
everything. But all the way through
she tried to shield Crippen."
The hearing wi.l be resumed tomorrow
and Dr. Crippen will interpose, it is
believed, no objection to being extradited.
The women of Quebec are sending
flowers to Crippen's cell.
CIVIL  COURT  DATE
Sixteen   Cases   on   the   Docket   for
August   29th.
Civil Court will be opened in Prince
Rupert on August 29th instead of the
22nd as originally set. The change was
made on account of the visit of the
Premier. The list of cases to be heard is
the largest yet and also includes a number from Stewart. This is the first time
the mining town has been 'represented
in the courts here. There are to date
sixteen oases on the list.
IMPERIAL OIL CO
Has   Opened   a   Branch   House   in
Prince    Rupert
The Imperial Oil Co. have established
a branch of their business in Prince
Rupert. They have taken the Kelly-
warehouse beyond Market Place and
opened for business yesterday. Manager
Matthews has arrived and taken charge.
The Imperial Oil Co will carry in the
Rupert establishment a full stock of all
illuminating oils that the firm handles and
should  be  an  advantage to  the  city.
FREE TRADE IN
THE DOMINION
MOVEMENT A SEVERE BLOW TO
BRITISH REFORMERS
Daily News Complains That West is
Driving Force and Morning Post
Says Sir Wilfrid Might as Well
Commit Political Suicide.
Plans    are    Wanted
The party having a set of plans of the
Morris-Bondeaux job will please return
them to W. L. Barker, architect, Second
avenue and Third Street.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, August 3.���The Daily News
says the present revolt in Canada
against the principles of protection and
against the protection policy of the Dominion government, is a severe blow to
the tariff reformers of Great Britain.
They claim that it is merely the western
part of the country that is supplying
this driving force, and that the movement does not represent the dominant
sentiment of the Canadian people as a
whole.
The Morning Post protests against
the free-trade reports of gigantic deputations waiting upon Sir Wilfrid
Laurier during his tour, with resolutions
favoring the abolition of the tariff,
and says Laurier might as well commit
political suicide as to embark on a free
trade policy.
THE JEALOUSY OF VANCOUVER
Engineer Schreiber Seeks to
AUay It
Tells Vancouverites Prince Rupert's
Growth Can Never Be Detrimental
To Vancouver, and This Sop of
Consolation    Is   Swallowed.
The Ashman Coal Mines company
has been incorporated with a million
dollar capital in one dollar shares.
The object is to "acquire by purchase
certain coal lands located by one J. K.
Ashman on Bulkley River, on the line
of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway,
comprising fifteen (15) square miles,
more or less, and to develop, mine,
work,   and   operate   the   same',   etc.
Collingwood Schreiber, chief consulting engineer of the Dominion government, who ia now here, was interviewed
by the Province before he started north.
He was undoubtedly asked to say that
Prince Rupert could never amount to
much as compared with Vancouver and
in replying had to call upon the diplomatic skill for which he is noted. He
is quoted in the Province as saying:-
"As far as Prince Rupert is concerned, its growth will never be detrimental   in   any   way   to   Vancouver.
Five hundred miles separates the two
cities, and each serves its own constituency. While Prince Rupert will
open up new territory to thc north,
the southern country and market will
always be yours."
Reviewing the condition of the G. T.
P. from Winnipeg to Edmonton, Mr.
Schreiber said that it is generally
good. The track is in good shape and
the service is expeditious and up-to-
date. The new line has cut the time
from Winnipeg to Edmonton 4 hours
below that of the Canadian Northern.
The bridges at Wolfe Creek and Mac-
leod River are each in use and are fine
structures. The first is 600 feet long
and 120 feet high, while that over the
Macleod is 1200 feet long and 142
feet high.
He believed that the roadbed would
be ready for the laying of rails as far
as the Athabasca River by December. THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST

BIG SALMON RUNS.
Naas Canneries Have Packed as Much
Already as They Did Last Year.
The fishing on the Naas River has
been exceptional this year. The run of
salmon is a record one and in spite of the
fact that the number of boats has been
reduced the Mill Bay Cannery has
reached the total pack of last year. During July there were 22 fine days and the
fish were very thick. During August the
cannery men look for another record run
as August is usually the best month.
Lord and Avondale canneries have each
packed 6000 cases and before the season
is over expect to put up 20,000 each. The
Mill Bay Cannery is much larger and
ita  pack   will   be   much   larger.

ANOTHER DARK WINTER
One do��s not need to be a pessimist to realize that short days and long nights
are approaching when the streets of the city will be darkened. A year ago when tha
population was less and the hazards fewer the live citizens realized what the winter
would bring forth and petitioned the Victoria Government to lend them means for
a temporary lighting plant. The Government responded and the committee undertook to put in lights within a few weeks. A side deal shelved negotiations until it
was too late and the city wintered in darkness, consoling each other with the thought
that next winter would see a municipal plant in operation . But the citizens apparently guessed wrong. The city council will at the present rate of progression
hardly realize that the city needs light before their term of office expires.
Bill says:.   "And her name was Lynch."
The Grand Trunk strike and the Bitter Creek strike which loomed so large
in the public eye no longer obscure the vision of the lesser transient things. Up to
date there is no evidence of either strike having made anyone rich.
The city council spent some time Monday evening in an academic discussion
of newspaper advertising. Thanks, we appreciate the contribution but the city
merchants would prefer the council to start something besides a debate.

After a warm debate on whether
tenders for street grading should be
called for in all three papers or just one,
the affirmative won out. The chief
argument of the negative side was that
the people might think that the daily
papers had scared the aldermen and they
(the aldermen) want it' understood that
they cannot be scared by a little criticism.
The idea of advertising for tenders
was introduced by Aid. Mclntyre and
Aid. Smith, and they stated that it
was purely a matter of business with
them. They realized that the daily
papers had the circulation and they
desired as many people as possible to
know that the city was calling for tenders
for street grading. <
Aid. Pattullo led the negative side.
He for one would not consent to the
daily papers or any other person or
persons trying to scare the council.
The majority of the aldermen did not
hesitate to vote with Aid. Mclntyre and
Aid. Smith on the grounds that they
would get more business by advertising
in the daily press and their motion carried.
The   Discussion
Aid. Mclntyre and Aid. Smith moved
that the tenders and advertisement
for section one as a local improvement
district be advertised in all the local
papers.
Aid. Pattullo said that as the council
had selected an official paper the people
generally understood that fact and naturally looked to that paper for information.
Aid. Lynch favored calling for tenders
in all the papers, but not advertising
the "Local Improvement Section One."
Aid. Naden agreed with Aid. Lynch,
but if the council was going to advertise
because of newspaper criticism he would
say no.
Aid. Smith and Aid. Mclntyre both
stated that they only intended advertising   for   tenders   in   all   three   papers.
Aid. Smith said it was a matter of
business pure and simple.
Aid. Pattullo said there were lots of
local contractors and very little publicity was needed to acquaint all the
contractors. He waa opposed to giving
advertising to other newspapers because
they criticised the council.
Aid. Smith and Aid. Mclntyre both
stated emphatically that they had no
intention by their motion to cater to
the newspapers, it was purely a matter
of business with them. The daily papers
had  the  circulation.
Aid. Barrow said so far as he was concerned the press criticism had no effect
upon him whatever, but he favored
calling for tenders in all papers.
The motion as passed was that tenders
for the work proposed to be carried on be
advertised in all three papers.

GERMANS SHOW
THEIR LOYALTY
PRESENT   AN   ADDRESS  TO   SIR
WILFRID   LAURIER
Ready to Fight for Their Adopted
Country and Hope Some of Their
Sons Will Man New Navy.���Sir
Wilfrid') Eloquent Reply.
(Special to the Optimist)
Regina, August 2.���The German
citizens of this district made a great show
of strength when they congregated
together to deliver a patriotic address
to the premier. In this address they spoke
of their attachment to the Faderland
but said they were prepared to fight for
their adopted country whenever their
services were needed, and they hoped
the time could come when their sons
would help to man the new Canadian
navy.
Sir Wilfrid made a stirring reply,
declaring that the loyal message of these
Germans citizens of Canada would be
carried to all parts o! the British empire.
DEVELOPMENT WORK
Is Needed on Portland Canal  Properties Before Engineers Report
Francis L. Otter, of S. Harrison & Co's
office at Stewart is in the city today on
business. He states that the mines and
older properties are opening up very
well, and some are even better than
anticipated. The prospectors are also
getting in on their claims again and
doing some work. This is what is needed
more than anything else. Unless the
prospector uncovers his property there
is no use for a mining engineer. Engineers cannot go in and look at the surface and state what there is underneath.
Mr. Otter met Engineer Maitland who
represented English capital and he said
that it is too early yet to tell anything
of the Portland canal mines. Several
months work has to be done before any-
thing definite can be determined about
most of the properties. He was very
favorably impressed, however, with the
surface showings and is confident that
the whole country is heavily mineralized.
The prospector has a lot of work to do
first, however.

JACK JOHNSON'S
WHITE WOMAN
NEW  YORK PAPER CLAIMS SHE
IS NOT HIS WIFE
Declares Real Wife Was Thrown
From Her Chicago Home and is
Now in Australia.���Urge Police to
Stop   Champion   Motoring.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, August 2.���Jack Johnson
is inordinately yroud of his "white" wife
and had her sitting in the arena near the
ring to see him defeat Jim Jeffries.
She is a handsome woman, so very
"light complected" that she might pass
for a Caucasian. Now comes the blow
that she is not his wife after all.
The Morning Telegraph this morning
declares in a front page article that the
white woman Johnson calls his wife was
never married to him but that his real
wife was driven from her Chicago home
to make way for the white woman. It
goes on to show that Johnson married
his real wife in Australia and that she
is now living there. It urges upon the
police to stop the colored champion
from motoring through the streets with
the wh'te woman, as such exhibitions of
licentious adultery and miscegenation
is calculated to cause rioting.

FEES TO PAY

PART OF THE CITY STREETS
No Protest Was Entered Against the
Grading of Tenth and Eleventh
Streets and Beach Place.���St reets
Committee   Make   Reports.
Tenth and Eleventh streets and Beach
Place are all ready now for grading.
The necessary advertising was done
in the daily papers and the fifteen days
for protesting have passed and not a
protest was entered. All the council
has to do now is to get Busy and last
night a resolution was passed handing
the work over to |he engineer to proceed with.
The streets, works and property
committee submitted a bunch of fees
which are to be charged against those
erecting buildings and who use a portion
of the streets, as is so frequently necessary. A small protest was entered by
Aid. Mclntyre but it availed nothing.
All the members were present at last
night's meeting except Aid. Hilditch.
A communication was received from
Clarkson, Cross & Helliwell enclosing
report on the new city books which they
had prepared and sent on to the city
and stating that Mr. Helliwell will
visit Prince Rupert during August
and give the council fuller information.
Street Committee Reports
The city clerk reported that no
petitions had been received against
the proposed local improvements and
street grading on Tenth, Eleventh
streets and Beach Place. This means
that nothing stands in the way of the
council to go ahead at once with that
work.���Received and the engineer asked
to call tenders.
The streets, works, and property
committee recommended that tenders
be called for on the work as prepared
by the engineer on Second avenue, and
that the city engineer put in his tender
also.���Adopted.
The streets committee recommended
that laborers laying plank roads be paid
at the rate of 50c per hour.���Adopted.
Some    More    Fees
The streets committee reported recommending the following fees in connection with the erection and alteration
or repairs of buildings as follows:-
For dwellings up to and including  $1000       1.00
For dwellings over $1000     1.60
For the erection,  alteration
or  repair  to  business  buildings   2.00
For the Use of streets 10c per day for
each 25 foot frontage, but no charge is
made where street is not graded or
planked
Aid. Mclntyre objected to the fee
of 10c per day per 25 feet frontage for
the erection of buildings. He said it
was quite inconsistant with the pledges.
It would be a pretty big tax and would
not encourage building. Other cities
did not do it.
Aid. Mobley disagreed w'ith Aid.
Mclntyre and supported the report.
He thought that the erection of a building which occupied part of the street
was a nuisance.
The report was adopted on motion
of Aid. Naden and Mobley.
The streets committee reported that
the petitions for the alteration of the
grade of Third  avenue,  Fraser street
and Fifth avenues, be referred to the
city engineer to look after before the
G. T. P. finally registered the grades.
This report was adopted and the
city engineer is to report to the council
as soon as possible.���Adopted.
