Winnipeg, July 12.���(Delayed in
ransmission)���Sir Wilfrid Laurier ar-
red here thia morning and was wel-
rnied by thousands. The occasion was
double fete, Sir Wilfrid and his party
aveling on the first passenger train
rer the Grand Trunk Pacific from
urt William. The Premier appeared to
��in excellent health and chatted gaily
his hotel with many personal ac-
jaintances.   It was a continuous recep
tion, in fact, for all the time he was in
the hotel.
In the afternoon he was escorted
around the city and noted with expressions of pleased surprise its growth
and prosperity. He spoke of the coming
world's fair in his conversation with the
mayor and other officials, and said he
had no doubt of its success as the hustling men of the west were of a character
to command success in all their undertakings.
The revised figures for the elections
were handed to nim. These show the
return of fourteen Liberals and twenty-
seven Conservatives. Sir Wilfrid declined to express any opinion upon the
result, smilingly observing that he
desired to hear as little as possible of
politics upon this western vacation he
was taking. He had quite enough of
politics at Ottawa.

curve warranted, when the engine left
the track and plunged into the canyon.
The engineer and his assistant were
both caught under the engine and killed.
Only one of the coaches went over the
precipice    and    its    fifteen    occupants
were all seriously hurt.

LONDON   HORRIFIED OVER  INFAMOUS CRIME
(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 14.���Not since the infamous Whitechapel murders has London
been so aroused and become so worked
up as it was yesterday on the discovery
of a body, believed to be that of Mrs.
Howard Crippen, formerly a noted
singer. Mrs. Crippen was lost to sight
to her friends and neighbors last February, and upon the disappearance'of her
husband, who is an American druggist,
he was charged with her murder.
The police in the course of their
investigation into the mystrey, yesterday
discovered two bodies in the dark cellers
of an old house at Islington, which had

been occupied by Crippen up to the time
of his disappearance.
Beneath the cement floor the Islington
police came upon a body believed to be
that of Mrs. Crippen. Decomposition
had set in and the authorities were not
able positively to establish identification. Nothing has been discovered as
to the other body except it is that of a
woman.
Scores of detectives have been detailed on the case and the police of
Europe and of all the leading American
cities have been requested to arrest
Crippen on sight. This action leads to
the belief that there is definite information in the possession of the'police that
Crippen did murder his wife and probably the other woman whose body was
found on his premises.
SIX HUNDRED
ARE DROWNED
TWO   LARGE   STEAMERS   COME
INTO   COLLISION
Accident Occurred Saturday at the
Mouth of the Dneiper, and Official
Statement is Now Made of the
Number  Lost  in the  Disaster.
(Special to the Optimist)
Odessa, July 14.���An official statement was issued this morning regarding
the collision between the steamers Lovki
and Wampos at the mouth of the Dneiper
It states that the impact was so terrific
that one of the boilers of the Lovki exploded, causing the vessel to sink immediately. The accident occurred on
Saturday, and the report states that
no less than six hundred passengers on
the Lovki were drowned.
BLIND   PIGS   SQUEAL
Were Caught and Now Make Charges
Against   the   Police
A special meeting of the Police commissioners was held this morning for
the purpose of discussing a number
of charges made by some of the Comox
blind pig men against the chief of police
and staff. The commissioners believed
the charges to be for the most part, of
the usual class made by men whose
sins have found them out. The blind
pigs have been caught and are beginning
to squeal. One particular charge will,
however, be gone into thoroughly and
particulars of it will appear later.
A. FREDRICKSON
WAS DROWNED
BOAT  CAPSIZED  IN  RIVER AND
MAN WAS CARRIED AWAY
Helping Two Other Men to Take
Rails to Their Work���Led Boat
Down Stream by a Rope���Boat
Turned   Sideways   and   Capsized.
A few days ago the Optimist published a dispatch from A. L. McHugh's
camp at mile 145, of the drowning of K.
Fredrickson. The full particulars, as
sent down by the contractor to Foley,
Welch and Stewart, here, are given below:
"Re K. Fredrickson the man who we
wired you drowned today. Fredrickson
was employed by a station gang here
and was taking some rails to their work
in a boat together with two other men
of the same gang. The water was swift
and the men were letting the boat down
stream with a line attached to shore.
Fredrickson was in the boat while his
partners were on shore holding the rope.
By an account given by the men, they
were proceeding in this manner when the
boat turned crosswise of the the river
and instantly capsized, throwing Fredrickson into the water. He sank and was
not seen again. His body has not yet
been receovered.
Paris, July 14���(Special)���A bill has
been introduced in the chamber of
deputies having, for its object the adoption of Greenwich time in France. It is
intended for the special convenience of
tourists and will undoubtedly be passed,
as is everything tending to cater to the
immense tourist trade.
FALL OF FIVE
THOUSAND FEET
FIVE INTREPID AERONAUTS ARE
DASHED   TO   PIECES
Were Mangled Beyond Recognition���
Prince George of Saxony Makes
Successful Trip in the Government
Dirigible Parseval With Six People.
(Special to the Optimist)
Cologne, July 14.���Carrying five intrepid aeronauts to their death the new
new dirigible Erbsloeh started from
Dusseldorf this morning, with Pascheid,
the constructor of the balloon, two of
his friends after whom the dirigible was
named and two mechanics in the basket.
When at a height of five thousand feet
the gas bag burst by expansion and the
five men were dashed to destruction.
Their bodies were mangled beyond recognition.
Dresden, Jjily 14.���Prince George of
Saxony made a successful trip yesterday
in the famous government airship Parseval IV. He had six distinguished
passengers and they were all safely landed
at Bittersfield.
WOMEN WIN
SECOND ROUND
SUFFRAGETTE  BILL  OBTAINS A
LARGE  MAJORITY
Passed Second Reading With Over
Hundred Votes to Spare���Russo-
Japan Treaty as to Manchuria
Bound to Start Big Rumpus.
(Special to the Optimist)
London,. July 14.���The galleries of
the house of commons were crowded
with women last night, as it was known
the Women Suffrage bill would again
come up for discussion. There was a
long and at times acrid debate upon the
leading features of the bill, the premier
concisely showing that if women were
given votes it must inevitably follow that
they would have seats in parliament,
and, as they largely outnumbered the
male population of the British Isles,
the government of the empire must in
time come under their complete control.
The vote upon the second reading of
the bill was something of a surprise,
there being two hundred and ninety-
nine for it and but one hundred and
ninety against. This was a serious defeat
for the government, but it is hoped this
result will be changed when the bill
comes up for third reading and final
passage.
There was a great crowd ol suffragettes awaiting outside parliament for the
result. They waited quietly and when
the vote was announced there were cheers
but   no   disorder.
Compulsory   Wireless
London, July 14���(Special)���The bill
making wireless telegraphy compulsory
on all British ships carrying passengers
has passed its first reading.
Wire  for  Fort  George
Fort George will soon have a telephone service to Blackwater, giving
the new town connection with the
government Yukon telegraph line.
London, July 14.���The text of the
B'jsso-Japan treaty, which has just been
made public, shows that the open door
has been shut in Manchuria. England
and the United States are likely to make
a strong protest. The situation is emphasized by the fact that this morning
the British government issued orders to
augment the fleet in the Orient by the
addition of the battleships Triumph and
Swiftwater.
Britain  Will   Protest
London, July 14.���The British government is to make a strong official protest
against the new immigration laws which
went into force last May. This is made
necessary by the representations of
all sorts of organizations and individuals
interested in emigration, who claim that
the law is too arbitrary and works an
injustice that under it Britains are shut
out of British territory to which they are
entitled to free entry. THE    PRINCE    KUPERT    OPTIMIST

STATEMENT BY
THE POSTMASTER
MIDWEEK BOAT WILL MAKE ALL
THE DIFFERENCE
Local Postoffice Well Equipped to
Handle Mail Promptly on Arrival
���With Grand Trunk Steamers
Carrying Mail, All Trouble Ends.
So much has been said in depreciation
of the mail service of Prince Rupert that
a few facts in that regard cannot fail
to be of public interest. The principal
ground of complaint is as to the delivery
of mail at this port, there being no mail
steamer from the south between Monday
and Friday evening. This, it is believed
will shortly be remedied by the Grand
Trunk Pacific boats getting a contract
to carry mail. One of these boats, the
Prince George, will begin the carrying
of mail on her first trip, arriving here
on the 24th, and with the Prince Rupert
and the Prince George added to the mail
carrying fleet much will have been done
to remedy the present inadequacy of
the service. Also, the Canadian Pacific
is putting a new steamer on the Prince
Rupert run, so very shortly there will
be one or more mail steamers in every
day unless they unfortunately bunch
up  occasionally.
As to the local service Postmaster
Mcintosh thinks it presents few points
to kick at. There are eight clerks employed and whenever a mail boat comes
in, no matter at what hour of the day
or night, they are on deck and the mail
is at once distributed. Of course the
wickets have tl be closed during that time
that the whole force may be engage
distributing. It could not be otherwise.
It would be foolish to ask at the wicket
for a letter until all that mail has been
thrown into the boxes, and the opening
up of the wickets is the sign that the
distribution  is complete.
"There is no ground for the kick that
while the wickets are closed a few
tourists might want to buy stamps,'
says Mr. Mcintosh. " There is a notice
put out that in the interim and. at all
times stamps can be purchased at
Little's, just half a block away. Also,
the hotels should apply for a license to
furnish their guests with stamps. It
costs nothing bu t the tiny trouble of
filling up a form of application.
"When a steamer brings in four days
of accumulated mail there is an average
of eighty-five sacks of it, and this takes
some time to distribute. The weekly
mail is about 175 sacks in and 150 sacks
out.
"In the office there is now good accommodation for the handling of the
mail matter. It has been improved and
enlarged recently but of course will
need further extension to keep pace with
Prince Rupert's rapid growth. Last week
there was put in a new mail rack, which
will accommodate seventy sacks for those
many different destinations. The former
mail rack had only accommodation for
twenty eight sacks. This is now used in
the registered letter department. New
sorting boxes for local mail have also
to be added, and there is much to show
that the postoffice department is at
last waking up to the fact that Prince
Rupert is quite a place, and now on
it is likely to accede at once to all reasonable requests for the improvement of
the service."
Awakening  of   China
Nanking, the old capital city of the
Chinese Ming dynasty, on the Yangtsze
River, is this summer inviting the nations
to the inique spectacle, of a Chinese
world's fair. The exposition opened
on June 1 and will remain open for
six months. This first "White City"
in China will be a creditable imitation,
though on a smaller seale, of the well-
known expositions of Europe. Nanking
has a larger inclosed area than even
Peking, the walled circumference being
twenty-five miles, says the American
Review of Reviews.
The exposition will occupy a space
of 500 by 400 yards, and will be situated about half way between the outer
wall and the center of the city, near the
Sanpailo station of the Nanking City
Railroad. The entire enterpirse has been
generously conceived on modern lines,
both in regard to architectural design
and landscape features.

Aid. Naden drew attention of the
council last night to the fact that the
license by-law which he had introduced
had been cut to pieces in his absence
and as it stood now be refused to father
it. He said that it was not right to his
mind to allow practically every business
man in the city to go scot free. He
asked that the by-law be again taken up
and gone over for he thought that a
large number of items had been cut off
which he thought the aldermen did not
really wish struck out. The aldermen
were not averse to re-considering the
by-law so the council went into committee of the whole and considered the
by-law clause by clause.
The road tax of $2 00 will stay on the
by-law. All the house holders would
be struck off the voters list if it was
not in.
In reference to the dog tax it was
decided to have the city solicitor put a
clause in the by-law providing a fine
for the owner of a bitch which runs at
large.
The wholesaler will have to pay $25
per six months.
Wholesale and retail or traders will
pay $25 per six months.
Retail merchant will pay $10 per six
months.
Hawkers and peddlers of fish, fruit,
farm produce, not of his own production
must pay $10 per six months.
Other hawkers and peddlers not included in the above will pay $50 per six
months.
Another clause will be included in
the by-law placing a license of $50
every six months for wholesale agents
who handle goods spasmodically.
On motion of Mayor Stork the theatre
license was raised to the maximum of
$200. He said that as about $8000 was
cut off by refusing to grant liquor
licenses, we have to make up the revenue
some other way.
Public wash houses and laundries
will pay $5 per every six months.
Rigs for hire will pay $250 per rig
per six months.
Livery stables will pay $10 every six
months.
The difference between the rare old
thing and a respectable new one is
sometimes  in   favor  of  respectability.

The Provincial Government has sent in an inspector of fruits, but according
to local comment there should also be an inspector of other food stuffs.
The replacing of business licenses in the city by-law is getting away from t
single-tax idea. With high rents, short profits, a fifteen mill rate and now a busines
tax the merchant is being somewhat harassed with Prince Rupert's growing tune.
The wireless telegraph service was put in as a supplementary service to the
Government Telegraph line but up to date it has been decidedly a failure. Yesterday
the telegraph line was down all day and the wireless was dead���for lack of an
operator. In the meantime the G. T. P. steamer Prince Rupert was laid up with
a damaged engine and the city waited without news of her.
Premier Laurier and party will visit Prince Rupert in about a month. It is time
some arrangements were being made for the reception of Canada's greatest son.
Heretofore the duty of receiving guests has fallen to the lot of the Prince Rupert
Publicity Club or the Board of Trade. The reception to the Premier should be under
the auspices of the city council, and it should be as whole-souled and general as the
city is capable of making it. Every citizen will be glad to welcome the Premier,
irrespective of party alliance.
PORTLAND HAS
ANOTHER FIRE
FAMOUS MULTNOMAH CLUB ONE
OF BUILDINGS DESTROYED
Number of Handsome Residences
��nd Four Uptown Hotels Burned���
Five Men Dead and Six Missing
Believed to be Dead.
(Special to the Optimist)
Portland, Ore., July 14.���An immense
conflagration somehow broke out in the
old buildings last night and cleared them
off entirely. There was a strong breeze
blowing and the attention of the fire
brigade was entirely directed to the preservation of adjoining property. This
seemed to be a success but sparks were
carried to a distance from the big blaze
and the fire jumped three streets,
breaking out unexpectedly in the residence portion of the city.
The famous Multnomah club house
was one of the first building3 to be destroyed; then followed a number of
handsome residences which were either
burned down or gutted, and no less than
four of the big uptown hotels were completely put out of business.
The suddenness with which the fire
spread can be gathered from the fact
that two bodies have been found and
six other men are missing and believed
to be dead also.
The property loss is estimated at
half a million.
ONE EFFECT OF

GRAND   TRUNK   PACIFIC   OPEN-

"In great measure this record influx
is due to increased interest being taken
by the transcontinental railways. The
appearance of the Grand Trunk Pacific
on the scene, opening up a large and
fertile new area and offering inducements
to settlers to locate, has had the effect
of stirring the Canadian authorities,
and between them these two huge
corporations are working in friendly
rivalry to enrich Canada with a quality
of population that will prove desirable
in the way of citizenship."

EXPORT TRADE
OF THIS PORT
CHANCE TO SUPPLY AUSTRALIA
WITH SKEENA SALMON
Sockeye Grown So Valuable That
United States Firms Are Attempting to Gobble All the Trade-
Decision  Against Them.
Ottawa, July 12.���News has reached
the department of trade and commerce
from Mr. D. H. Ross, trade commissioner at Melbourne, of a decision by the
government of the Commonwealth which
is of importance to the salmon packers
of British Columbia.
For years past Canadian salmon have
beein gaining a footing in Australia, especially what is known as the sockeye
salmon. Their reputation was so good
that.certain United States companies,
operating in Alaskan waters, put up a
brand of northern salmon and labelled it
"Sockeye." There has been controversy
of experts over the question. Dr. Starr
Jordan contending on behalf of the
United States that the Alaskan sockeye
were of the same family as Fraser river
sockeye, while Prof. Prince, Canadian
superintendent of fisheries, has claimed
that the two belong to different fish
families. The controversy has been
ended so far as the commercial results
are concerned by the decision of the
Australian government, which is that

Fort George citizens have marked
with lively interest the application at
Ottawa for approval of the plans of
the Pie Pass Railway, which shows
the location of a line from Edmonton
to Fort George by way of the Feace

Pine river, then up the Pine to the
headwaters in Pine Pass and over the
Rockies to the Fraser river and down
to Fort George. The G. T. P. are supposed to be behind this projected railway
which will make Fort George the railway

HUNDREDS OF
MILLIONS NOW
IMMENSE    SUMS    INVESTED    IN
CANADA BY AMERICANS
In Consequence of Uncle Sam's
High Tariff Millions Are Being
Poured Into the Dominion���
Ready for Reciprocity.
Detroit, July 12.���"The investment of
United States capital in the Canadian
provinces last year exceeded by $60,-
000,000 the bonded business between
Canada and Great Britain," said James
Simpson, president of the Board of
Education of Toronto, who has been
appointed a member of the Dominion
Government Commission which will
tour the world for a year seeking information to better Canada industrially.
Mr. Simpson is representing the Toronto Star, with a delegation of fifteen city officials, investigating Detroit paving and the Detroit boulevard construction.
"The investment of American capital in Canada last year was $226,000,-
000," he said. "It is just one indication of what Canada is doing to place
herself alongside the leading nations
of the world industrially. Our trip
around the world is to the same end.
We will investigate educational matters primarily, but with a view to
bettering the vocational features of
our educational system with special
regard to the industries of specific
provinces.
"In Canada now the government
has no direct control over the school
system and the provincial schools are
away behind other countries in the
practical training which they give. It
is by special request of the provincial
school authorities that this commission has been appointed. There are
eight men on the commission and we
are given a little more than a year for
investigation before making our report.
"The investment of American capital in Canada in past years has been
largely in branch factories of the large
American corporations, but last year
a big increase was due to the Cobablt
development. The American money
invested in Canada last year is due to
the American tariff. Canada has profited largely by the retaliatory duty,
but Canada now is ready to tear down
the barriers on both sides for free competition. The tendency on both sides
seems to be a better trade relation reached by a reduction of duty."
There is nothing like the oil of good
temper to keep things from getting
into knots and for making them run
smoothly.

Assessment Work on Hill Claims.
With the summer's development work
on Fourmile hill now under full swing
an immense improvement is being
shown on the prospects that had a
little work done last year, and some
fine ore is being found on claims on
which the first assessment is now being
worked.
The Herald man went over a part of
the hill one day this week and inspected
some of the showings. On the Attridge
property, under bond to E. L. Kinman,
of Vancouver, a prospect shaft is being
sunk and the high grade streak of ore
is widening with every shot. The vein
is about four feet wide with well defined
walls.
The claims owned by Jas. Dyer of
Rossland and Tom Stevenson are looking
well. On one of them, an extension of
the Attridge claim, a shaft is being put
down. The vein is about the same width
as on the latter property and the ore
is much the same in appearance. On
another claim, on the north side of the
hill, they have a good showing of galena
ore, but no work has been done beyond
surface stripping.
D. L. Purvis is finding fine-looking
galena, but hasn't enough work done
to indicate the value of the property.
Other prospectors are performing
assessment work, Jas. Smith of Rossland
among the number. Their claims were
not visited but they were reported to be
engaged in surface work.
With the exception of the bluffs
facing Bulkley valley, the whole hill
is covered with earth from two to eight
feet deep, and a great deal of work
is required in tracing the leads. It is
only about fourteen months since the
first claim was staked and but little
work was done last season, consequently
the greater part of the hill is practically
untouched.
Fourmile hill lies close to the railway
line. From the top of the hill the partially completed grade appears to be not
much more than a mile distant. The
elevation is from 1200 to 1500 feet above
the Bulkley river.���Omineca Herald.

Vancouver, July 13.���Mr. W. H.
Grant, manager of construction of
the Portland Canal Short Line
Railway now under construction
between Stewart and the various mining camps, is at the Hotel Vancouver.
He has just returned from Toronto
where he has been confering with Mr.
Donald D. Mann, the principal promoter
of the enterprise. Mr. Grant will leave
for the North tonight.
Mr. Grant feels confident that the
fifteen-mile railway will be completed
before next fall, enabling the various
companies to get in supplies for the
winter season, thus ensuring mining
operations being carried on throughout
the winter months. The Belle of Scotland
a steamer laden with rails for the Grand
Trunk Pacific and the Portland Canal
road, is expected to reach Prince Rupert
this week. There she will unload a
portion of her cargo before proceeding
to Stewart. The vessel sailed from
Sydney, Cape Breton, several months
ago, voyaging via Cape Horn.
A large portion of the equipment
for the mineral railway, including two
engines, has reached Vancouver. It
will be shipped north as soon as a few
miles of track shall have been laid.
Mr. Grant arrived at this city on the
Prince Rupert this morning and corroborated the above dispatch. He continued his journey to Stewart, where he
will remain all summer in active charge
of the construction of the road.

LOST TRYING TO

SEATTLE CONTRACTOR DROWNED IN JERVIS INLET.

Small Boat Caught in Whirlpool
By Tide���Parties Now Searching
For    the    Husband's    Remains
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, July 14.���W. S. Wiley,
one of the leading contractors of Seattle,
and his wile, were drowned Monday in
Jervis Inlet, where they had been on a
pleasure tour in a launch. Nothing was
heard of the occurrence until yesterday
when the launch being overdue enquiries
were instituted. Itt ranspires that the
two had left the launch, and in the
small boat had gone up a creek to fish.
While they were absorbed in the sport
the tide crept up and the boat was
caught in a whirlpool caused by the rising tide. It swirled them around and
was in a few moments capsized.
Wiley seized his wife and the two were
carried down stream. The body of the
woman was found washed up on the bank
and it is assumed she was carried near
there by Mr. Wiley who at the time
was exhausted and drowned. Search is
now being made for his body; that of
Mrs. Wiley was brought here. last night
and their family in Seattle notified.
Mr. Wiley was head of a firm which
is one of the largest of the country in
the line of municipal improvements and
similar work. It has now nearly completed the immense work of removing
Denny Hid and regrading it. The firm
also has under way the remaking of the
ground used for the World's fair at
Portland, Oregon, which embraces the
tearing down of a mountain and the
filling in of a lake that is eight miles
long. Mr. Wiley was a man of about 40,
in the full vigor of robust manhood, and
took a deep interest in public and church
affairs.
Caterpillars Kill Grass
��� The fine grass plot in front of the
Government buildings, the pride of Prince
Rupert, is being eaten away by a plague
of caterpillers. Thus the pests of civilization and urban worries are all coming
to the new city.
The Amateur Contest at the
Empress Theatre on Friday night
promises to be a hummer.
The person who is between the devil
and the deep blue sea is due to give
his Satanic majesty some exercise.
Brandon's Players made the biggest
hit during their stay at the Empress
theatre last night in "Cousin Kate."
"Kate" and "Polly Primrose" are undoubtedly the parts in which Miss
Russell excels. While there were only
six in the cast of "Cousin Kate" they
succeeded in producing more laughs
than any other play by far.
Tonight another big treat is promised,
namely 'David Harum,' wilth Carl Caldwell, who followed William H. Crane in
in the title role.
The novel ' David Harum' is from the
pen of Owen Wister, author of 'The
Virginian.' It is a typical rural comedy
of York state folks, and the character
of David Harum' the banker and horse
trader is the most homely ever pictured.
He is the kind who would rather make
ten dollars on a horse trade than one
hundred dollars in his bank, but his
quiet humor and big generous heart
makes him a most loaveable character.
The dramatization has followed the
book very closely and it will be given an
excellent sceenic production by the
Brandons.
Another production which the lovers
of melodrama are looking forward to is
"Jesse James" on Saturday night, when a
drama founded on incidents in the life
of the greatest of all outlaws will be
given.

they would like to do to you and do
