The World's Peace���Funeral   Will Be Friday,

High   Chancellor.
giii
k, London,      May   9,���The   spirit   of
jritish fair play towards the King
|)out to ascend the throne has brought
ilout   a   truce   between   the   political
ilders of all parties. The House of
jiJlds issue has been shelved for a year.
ing George was proclaimed King this
| orning when he  rode with  heralds,
Jteuivants and knights of the Garter,
ji;��Sbrled by Lifeguards, all in a gorgeous
panoply, to Temple Bar, where they
���jart received by the Lord  Mayor in
IsSrobes of office.
I The proclomation was read by the
Ktjfrd Mayor.    A herald reads the pro-
(���amation  at  Temple  Bar  and  rising
his saddle challenges an opponent of
,^ng George to declare himself. It
a custom of a thousand years which
.s been faithfully carried out.
The Funeral.
King George is anxious not to spoil
hit Monday, a holiday of the lower
passes, and wants the funeral to take
���||ace on Saturday instead of the follow-
i|ig Tuesday, but the date  is  still    un-
[rtain.
|1| The burial will be at Frogmore, where
ince Albert and Queen Victoria are
fflterred.
jljB The  coronation   will   probably  take
|j''lace six months hence.
The World's Peace.
Kaiser William of Germany says he
id   his   late   uncle,    King   Edward,
��� mpe    to    a    perfect    understanding
���lis life to maintain the peace of the
afld. King George has made a declara-
to follow in his father's footsteps. It
produced  a strong  impression  in
his favour and the British are already
optimistic that the reins are in another
firm hand. King George is thoroughly
English, much more so than his father,
which fact is thoroughly appreciated
by   his  subjects.
The  Funeral   Arrangements.
The body of the late king was Viewed
by the old servants on Saturday, and
is probably closed from mortal eyes
by this time. There will be no lying
in state.
King George and his court have
moved   to Windsor.
It will be awkward if ex-president
Roosevelt turns up for the funeral.
As a private citizen he cannot appear
in the procession amoung royalties,
and as an |ex-president he cannot be
relegated to the tail end. In the event
of his coming he will probably not
appear in the procession, but go straight
to a seat in the building.
Most of the crown heads of Europe
are likely to attend the obsequies.
Queen Sends Thanks.
Vancouver, May 9,���Knollys cables
Queen Alexandra's thanks for the condolences from the Presbyterian Synod
of British Columbia, now in session
here.
The Mayor and Japanese consul
have sent messages of sympathy per the
Dominion   authorities.
The criminal assize court adjourned
here in the middle of a murder trial.
The jury was discharged.
A public memorial service day has
been declared by Mayor Taylor. It will
be held in Recreation park on the day
of the funeral.
SPECIAL PRAYERS   SAID
fall   the Churches for  the Royal
Family.
IP
pecial   reference   was   made   in   all
Xl churches  yesterday   to  the  death
iKing   Edward    VII,   and   special
Jti: lyers were said for the Royal Family
t;.: 1  the  British   Empire  in  its  hour
.affliction.     The   pulpits  were  all
ped with purple and black and the
���fcn Jack.    A special memorial ser-
��� will be held by the three protestant
Itches  on  the   day   of  the   funeral
(Die Empress Theatre.
I��   the   First   Presbyterian   church,
���a  Mr.   Ross   made   the   following
ifence to our late King, during the
ning service:���   Preaching from the
t', "But they that  wait upon the
|j;:d shall renew their strength: they
pll mount up with wings as eagles:"
j.   Ross, in conclusion, said:   To-day
j only does the Royal Family grieve
! loss of one near and dear by t'he
jj of nature, but every true citizen
. ie British Empire mourns the death
leir loved and esteemed King.
|:: >t  only  does  the  Royal  Family
the   British   Empire   mourn   his
in   death,   but  the  whole  world
ns the removal of an unequalled
mat, and universal peace maker.
is true that the late King never
the place in  the  hearts of  his
people that his good old mother Queen
Victoria did. Different reasons could
be given, reasons which need not be
remembered or mentioned now.
Again, while this be true, he succeeded
during the few short years of his reign
in winning the admiration of the world
in a way in which no monarch for centuries back has been able to secure.
It may be difficult to understand
why such removal should be made at
this critical period in the history of
British affairs; why such an all round
diplomat, such a universal peacemaker
should be taken away at such a critical period in the history of the world,
at a time when so much nervousness
and unrest prevails among the nations
Whatever may be our misgivings,
whatever may be the mistakes of
earthly kings, we may safely take for
granted that the great over Ruler, the
King of Kings, makes no mistakes.
Like all others of rank and position,
the late King Edward VII was criticized, and oft times even slandered.
Whatever may be said about him as
a Prince, the general opinion is that
nothing but good could be justly said
of him as a king and ruler.
As servant and ruler of the Empire
he was never above stooping to assist
the poorest, the humblest and lowliest
of his subjects. If, as the Master himself said, "Inasmuch as ye have done
unto one of the least of these, my
brethren, ye have done it unto me."
If that be true, then, he who waited
; upon his people must have at the same
i time waited upon the Lord, and if such
, reasoning holds good may we hope and
I believe that he was often among those
who waited upon his God. And may we
not be mistaken in our hopes when we
believe    in the closing scenes of life
he was.not only borne on eagle's wings,
| but clear,  when he said  "I think  I
have.done my duty."    And since the
Lord of all the earth makes no mistakes,   may   this   dispensation   of   his
providence    so    affect    the    internal
condition of the Empire and the general   weal   of  the  world  that  we,   as
British   subjects,   and   representatives
of the outside world as our sympathizing
brethren   may   be   able  to   say   "Not
my will but Thine be done: the Lord
hath given, the Lord hath taken away,
blessed be the name of the Lord."
Rev. Father Bunoz.
Very Rev. E. M. Bunoz, O. M. J.,
in the Catholic Church on Sunday morning during his sermon said among other
things, "We are lamenting the death
of our king. The king, for us, is the
embodiment of the temporal power
of that special system of government
which rules over the destinies of that
Empire of which Canada is a part. Our
loyalty is all the more firm because it
rests, not in blood or sentiment, but
on principle, on conscience and faith.
We p.iy obedience and respect to the
king, for such is the command of God
and when a king is fair to all, and
endeavours to give a just government
to all his subjects, we add to our loyalty in this regard, feelings of gratitude
and love. King Edward, whose death
we are lamenting, was one of those. We
must, therefore, unite with the wave of
sympathy in mourning that sovereign of the British Empire and applaud
to the high tributes and praises that
are paid to his dear memory."
Rev. C F. Connor.
The British nation has, this week,
been called upon to pass through an
experience which has both startled
and stunned it.
Albert   Edward,   Prince   of   Wales,
ascended   the  throne  left  vacant   by
the death of his mother the late, much
j beloved, Queen  Victoria, in  1901, as
, Edward VII.   At that time unpleasant
! rumors were circulated about his manner
! of life and the nation feared, in silence,
| Their   fears   have   not   been   realized.
During   the   nine  short   years  of   his
reign the Empire has been at peace,
and  blessed   with  prosperity.     Diplomatic relations were never better, and
: the   late   king  was   familiarly   called
Edward the Peacemaker.
Now,  at  the  very  important  crisis
between the Lords and Commons, God
has seen fit to remove him from the
j scene of action.   Upon a younger man
falls the responsibility, and the nation
i hesitates.    What will the years bring
! forth? It seems as if the voice of God
speaks as of old, "Speak unto the people
that they go forward."   With   no lack
of feeling or respect do we use these
words.     We pauSe by the open grave,
I as  it  were,  to  pay  our  last  respects
j and offer a tribute to the late King
who tried to do his best.    But the de-
mands of the day make it imperative
I that we again fall into line and move
! forward.
By those far removed from the
scene of action, the loss may not be
felt so keenly.From the thoughtless may
even come words of disrespect; but,
whatever may have been the errors
of his younger days we know this -he
tried, and to judge by results, he
succeeded. The parts of the Empire
are to-day, bound by closer ties than
ever. The Imperial feeling is stronger and more deeply implanted in the
I hearts of the people. And what more
I than thisspeaks more strongly the assur-
i anceof peace to the world!.
An eloquent tribute to the place he
I occupied  in  the  hearts of the  people
! is given in the fact that he alone of
the   sovereigns   of   the   wcrld,   could
travel abroad in safety without an armed
escort.
The uncertainty of the hour may bring
to many privation and suffering; but
years ago the present crisis would have
plunged the nation into civil war.
How devoutly we ought to thank God
for the changed conditions '.. The easy
passing of the present crisis may largely account for the more remote parts
of the Empire being less deeply affected; this, however, is a greater reason
for a truer expression of grief. And tonight the Methodist church in Prince
Rupert unites with her sister churches
in rendering this reward of tribute to
the great and beloved.
At St. Andrew's Hall
Owing to the absence of Bishop Du
Vernet, who was in Metlakatla, the
expected report of the pulpit comments
in St. Andrew's Hall cannot be given
to-day.
THE ROCKS LAID BARE
This Is the Season for Low Tides���
Foreshores and Rocks That See
the Air for the First Time in
Seven Years.
OFFICIAL PROCLAMATION.
George   V.   Proclaimed   King   This
Morning.
London,    May   9,--George   V   was
proclaimed king at nine this morning.
Seven thousand troops lined the route.
Funeral  May 20.
London, May 9,���The., funeral of
King Edward has been fixed for Friday,
May 20.
Lord Carrington, who was mention-
I ed as the possible Governor General
1 of  Canada,  has  been  appointed  Lord
High Chamberlain.
DEVELOPMENT WORK.
This is a year of extreme low tides.
| And the particular season when old Nep-
I tune   will   reveal   some   seldom   seen
j stretches of his habitat is pretty nearly
due..
Last year was one of the freak tides,
but this summer there will be a laying
bare of mud flats and foreshore such as
there will not be seen again to quite such
a marked degree for another seven years.
For tides on this coast run in cycles of
seven years -and even at that no two
years are quite the same.
Commencing to-day and continuing
for several days alter that there will be
some low tides that will show many a
bare spot seldom uncovered. These will
not be the lowest tides of the year, however. They will go about six inches below extreme low springs���and that is
pretty  low.
But the real low ones will start about
Monday, June 6, and for about a week
after that there will be occasions when
as much as approximately two feet below extreme low springs will be laid bare.
Early in August again there will be
more receding of the waters that cover
the face of the earth in this particular
corner of the globe. They will not go
quite as low as in June, but on a couple
of days they will go several inches below the level of low springs.
Along in September, and also late
in October there will be a few more
six-inch tides which will cause practically
no current on those occasions. But
otherwise the tides will behave themselves fairly regular for the balance of
the year.
This morning between 7 and 8 the
tide was almost zero. To-morrow it
will he lower.
Coal Mine Owners Went Up Morris
River to Develop Coal Mines.
Messrs. F. M. Dockrell of Vancouver,
T. E. & Mrs. Jefferson of New York,
H. L. Hawkins of Seattle, C. D. Sellers
of Black Diamond, Wash., and Howard
Sanford of Los Angelos, arrived on the
Royal Saturday night and registered
at the Inn. They left this morning on
the Omineca to go up the Skeena to
Morris River, where they have coal
fields. They are taking up two diamond drills and a full outfit of supplies,
as they will remain all season. They have
completed the prospecting programme
and this season will do a lot of development work. They have a very high
grade of bituminus coal, which looks
good to them, and so far as they have
been able to ascertain thus far, exists
in large quantities. Before they leave
the mines they intend to know the full
extent of the coal.
Murder Story Wrong.
As a result of a report of a murder
in Lockport some weeks ago, Chief
Wynn sent constable Prescott of Jedway over to investigate. The chief
received a report this morning to the
effect that there was nothing in the
story. The captain of the fishing trawler Kingsway heard it from Special
Constable Beech.
The Ellis Lumber Co.
Mr. E. W. Chandler of Vancouver,
arrived on the Princess Royal and left
to-day on the Port Simpson for the Ellis
Lumber Co's camps at Kitselas and
vicinity. It is rumored that Mr. Chandler has purchased Mr Ellis' interests
in the lumber company and will conduct the business himself. The Ellis
Lumber Co., is one of the largest concerts of the kind in Northern British
Columbia, and the transfer means a
big thing for Mr. Chandler.
When Mr. Chandler was s��en by the
Optimist this morning he would neither
deny or confirm the report, lie simply
remarked that he never yet gave an
interview to a newspaper, not that he
had anything against them, but he did
not think the public would be interested in his affairs.
Nevertheless, Mr. Chandler is taking
four or five horses, and a lot of other
necessary material for a lumber camp
up on the Port Simpson with him.
Artificial   Ice.
The Princess May will make a special
trip from Vancouver to Stewart, leaving
the south on May 25, calling here on
the 27th, and proceed to Steewart,
where she will lay up for two days and
then return.
The steamer Henriette brought over
the first lot of fresh fish and of artificial ice from the Pacific Coast Fishing
Co., of Queen Charlotte Islands. The
consignment was for the Prince Rupert
Fish market. The products of the Pacific
Fish Company will be a great boon
for Prince Rupert, and the ice plant
will assure the local people of plenty
of  frozen  water  for cooking purposes.
The Cetriana called in here Sunday
on her way south and took a number of
passengers  with  her. THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

should be taken away at such a critical period in the history of Ihe world,
at a time when so much nervousness
and unrest prevails among the nations
Whatever may be our misgivings,
whatever may be the mistakes of
earthly kings, we may safely take for
granted that the great over Ruler, the
King of Kings, makes no mistakes.
Like all others of rank and position,
the late King Edward VII was criticized, and oft times even slandered.
Whatever may be said about him as
a Prince, the general opinion is that
nothing but good could be justly said
of him as a king and ruler.
As servant and ruler of the Empire
he was never above stooping to assist
the poorest, the humblest and lowliest
of his subjects. If, as the Master himself said, "Inasmuch as ye have done
unto one of the least of these, my
brethren, ye have done it unto me."
If that be true, then, he who waited
j upon his people must have at the same
; time waited upon the Lord, and if such
; reasoning holds good may we hope and
j believe that he was often among those
who waited upon his God. And may we
not be mistaken in our hopes when we
believe in the closing scenes of life
he was.not only borne on eagle's wings,
but clear, when he said "I think I
have.done my duty." And since the
Lord of all the earth makes no mistakes, may this dispensation of his
providence so affect the internal
condition of the Empire and the general weal of the world that we, as
British subjects, and representatives
of the outside world as our sympathizing
brethren may be able to say "Not
my will but Thine be done: the Lord
hath given, the Lord hath taken away,
blessed be the name of the Lord."
Rev. Father Bunoz.
Very Rev. E. M. Bunoz, O. M. J.,
in the Catholic Church on Sunday morning during his sermon said among other
things, "We are lamenting the death
of our king. The king, for us, is the
embodiment of the temporal power
of that special system of government
which rules over the destinies of that
Empire of which Canada is a part. Our
loyalty is all the more firm because it
rests, not in blood or sentiment, but
on principle, on conscience and faith.
We p,iy obedience and respect to the
king, for such is the command of God
and when a king is fair to all, and
endeavours to give a just government
to all his subjects, we add to our loyalty in this regard, feelings of gratitude
and love. King Edward, whose death
we are lamenting, was one of those. We
must, therefore, unite with the wave of
sympathy in mourning that sovereign of the British Empire and applaud
to the high tributes and praises that
are paid to his dear memory."
Rev. C F.  Connor.
The British nation has, this week,
been called upon to pass through an
experience which has both startled
and stunned it.
Albert Edward, Prince of Wales,
ascended the throne left vacant by
the death of his mother the late, much
beloved, Queen Victoria, in 1901, as
Edward VII.   At that time unpleasant
I rumors were circulated about his manner
of life and the nation feared, in silence,
l Their   fears   have   not   been   realized.
. During the nine short years of his
reign tho Empire has been at peace,
and blessed with prosperity. Diplomatic relations were never better, and
the   late   king was   familiarly   called
j Edward the Peacemaker.
Now, at the very important crisis
between the Lords and Commons, God
' has seen  fit to remove him from the
J scene of action. Upon a younger man
falls the responsibility, and the nation
i hesitates.    What will the years bring
! forth? It seems as if the voice of God
speaks as of old, "Speak unto the people
that they go forward."   With   no lack
! of feeling or respect do we use these
words. We paus>e by the open grave,
as it were, to pay our last respects
I and offer a tribute to the late King
who tried to do his best.    But the de-
,'mands of the day make it imperative
! that we again fall into line and move
J forward.
By those far removed from the
scene of action, the loss may not be
felt so keenly.From the thoughtless may
even come words of disrespect; but,
whatever may have been the errors
of his younger days we know this���he
tried, and to judge by results, he
succeeded. The parts of the Empire
are to-day, bound by closer ties than
I ever. The Imperial feeling is stronger and more deeply implanted in the
hearts of the people. And what more
than thisspeaks more strongly the assur-
anceof peace to the world!.
An eloquent tribute to the place he
occupied in the hearts of the people
is given in the fact that he alone of
the sovereigns of the world, could
travel abroad in safety without an armed
escort.
The uncertainty of the hour may bring
to many privation and suffering; but
years ago the present crisis would have
plunged the nation into civil war.
How devoutly we ought to thank God
for the changed conditions !. The easy
passing of the present crisis may largely account for the more remote parts
of the Empire being less deeply affected; this, however, is a greater reason
for a truer expression of grief. And tonight the Methodist church in Prince
Rupert unites with her sister churches
in rendering this reward of tribute to
the great and beloved.

DEVELOPMENT WORK.
Coal Mine Owners Went Up Morris
River to Develop Coal Mines.
Messrs. F. M. Dockrell of Vancouver,
T. E. & Mrs. Jefferson of New York,
H. L. Hawkins of Seattle, C. D. Sellers
of Black Diamond, Wash., and Howard
Sanford of Los Angelos, arrived on the
Royal Saturday night and registered
at the Inn. They left this morning on
the Omineca to go up the Skeena to
Morris River, where they have coal
fields. They are taking up two diamond drills and a full outfit of supplies,
as they will remain all season. They have
completed the prospecting programme
and this season will do a lot of development work. They have a very high
grade of. bituminus coal, which looks
good to them, and so far as they have
been able to ascertain thus far, exists
in large quantities. Before they leave
the mines they intend to know the full
extent of the coal.
This Is the Season for Low Tides���
Foreshores and Rocks That See
the Air for the First Time in
Seven Years.
This is a year of extreme low tides.
And the particular season when old Neptune will reveal some seldom seen
stretches of his habitat is pretty nearly
due..
Last year was one of the freak tides,
but this summer there will be a laying
bare of mud flats and foreshore such as
there will not be seen again to quite such
a marked degree for another seven years.
For tides on this coast run in cycles of
seven years���and even at that no two
years are quite the same.
Commencing to-day and continuing
for several days alter that there will be
some low tides that will show many a
bare spot seldom uncovered. These will
not be the lowest tides of the year, however. They will go about six inches below extreme low springs���and that is
pretty  low.
But the real low ones will start about
Monday, June 6, and for about a we^k
after that there will be occasions when
as much as approximately two feet below extreme low springs will be laid bare.
Early in August again there will be
more receding of the waters that cover
the face of the earth in this particular
corner of the globe. They will not go
quite as low as in June, but on a couple
of days they will go several inches below the level of low springs.
Along in September, and also late
in October there will be a few more
six-inch tides which will cause practically
no current on those occasions. But
otherwise the tides will behave themselves fairly regular for the balance of
the year.
This morning between 7 and 8 the
tide was almost zero. To-morrow it
will be lower.
Murder Story Wrong.
As a result of a report of a murder
in Lockport some weeks ago, Chief
Wynn sent constable Prescott of Jedway over to investigate. The chief
received a report this morning to the
effect that there was nothing in the
story. The captain of the fishing trawler Kingsway heard it from Special
Constable Beech.
The Ellis Lumber Co.
Mr. E. W. Chandler of Vancouver,
arrived on the Princess Royal and left
to-day on the Port Simpson for the Ellis
Lumber Co's camps at Kitselas and
vicinity. It is rumored that Mr. ("handle r has purchased Mr Ellis' interests
in the lumber company and will conduct the business himself. The Ellis
Lumber Co., is one of the largest concerts of the kind in Northern British
Columbia, and the transfer means a
big thing for Mr. ("handler.
When Mr. Chandler was seen by the
Optimist this morning he would neither
deny or confirm the report. He simply
remarked that he never yet gave an
interview to a newspaper, not that he
had anything against them, but he did
not think the public would be interested in his affairs.
Nevertheless, Mr. Chandler is taking
four or five horses, and a lot of other
necessary material for a lumber camp
up on the Port Simpson with him.
Artificial   Ice.
The Princess May will make a special
trip from Vancouver to Stewart, leaving
the south on May 25, calling here on
the 27th, and proceed to Steewart,
where she will lay up for two days and
then return.
The steamer Henriette brought over
the first lot of fresh fish and of artificial ice from the Pacific Coast Fishing
Co., of Queen Charlotte Islands. The
consignment was for the Prince Rupert
Fish market. The products of the Pacific
Fish Company will be a great boon
for Prince Rupert, and the ice plant
will assure the local people of plenty
of frozen  water  for cooking purposes.
The Cetriana called in here Sunday
on her way south and took a number of
passengers  with  her. THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
HPHE germ of both Life and
* Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for thos<? dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
���charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems,
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left bis
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which 1 have given my life."
And the wife and daughter
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

a few days on a purchasing and busines

this spring and has a great future.
Many prospectors are going in this
