POWER NOW
THE QUESTION
MORROW  SEEKS  INFORMATION
FROM COUNCIL
Gasoline Engine* More Dangerous
Than Lamp*.���Aid. Mobley Gives
No Hope of City Selling Power Until   Permanent   Plant   Is   Ready.
George W. Morrow brought to the
attention of the city council on Saturday
afternoon the interesting question of
power supply. He thought that while
the council was negotiating for power
for electric light they should also take
into consideration the supply of power.
One reason in the matter was in regard
to the Optimist plant in which he is
interested, upon which using a gasoline
plant it was impossible to get insurance
at less than ten per cent, which was almost prohibitive. He should like to
impress unon the council the importance
of supplying power as well as electric
light as quickly as possible.
It was not for himself alone that he
spoke but for other users of power also.
He did not see, for instance, how the
Kelly-Douglas company would be able
to use its big warehouse without putting
in power, and to use gasoline meant
the menance of fire.
Now in the Optimist office they were
using gasoline for power, and ia; was
dangerous not only to themselves but
to every body in the neighborhood.
The danger from the use of gasoline
engines was as great as that of using
lamps; even more so. They had a $15,000
plant and could only get a $3000 insurance. He understood there were many
warehouses being built that would also
need power and he thought the city
could easily dispose of 100 horse power.
He thought if the committee ordered two
machines instead of one they would have
no power to spare. He should like an
expression of opinion from the council,
and if there seemed no chance of the city
being able to supply power soon the
Optimist would have to go ahe^ad and
put up a cement building for its engines
in order to get a lower rate of insurance.
Mr. Palmer said the Prince Rupert
Sash and Door company would be glad
to take power from the city instead of
the power it was now using. Its fuel
bill for coal was over $300 per month,
although they made a great deal of fuel
(or themselves. If he were informed for
what price the city could generate that
power he would be able to answer
immediately. The company would need
boilers in any case for its dry kilns, but
lor this they made enough fuel. He would
prefer electric power in any case, and then
they could move their boilers away and
lessen the danger of fire.
The Mayor said that in reply to Mr.
Morrow he might say the council had
ordered one dynamo and would put in
another just as quickly as possible. This
*as for temporary lighting but if it wag
found possible to get a day run a certain
amount of power could be generated
also. Meantime the council was going
Into the matter of a more permanent
P ant.
Mr.  Morrow:      Have  you   enough
m?tor the machin<- you have ordered.
The Mayor:   Oh, yes.
Mr Morrow: It just occurred to me
that if
���ity. In the event of the four boilers
proving to be in good condition to light
the city would take all the two machines
can produce, and we canot give power
until we get a permanent plant.
Mr. Morrow: That means that we
cannot hope for power for some time?
Aid. Mobley: Our permanent plant
would be installed in from six to ten
weeks. We might sell a little power from
the temporary plant during the day
but we should have none to spare during
the hours of darkness.
Mr, Morrow: Even that little would be
a great relief and would certainly reduce
the terms of insurance. We were just
now considering the building of a concrete building for our engines.
The Mayor: We are discussing this
same question of how to dispense with
the use of gasoline both for engines and
lamps, and Mr. Morrow may rest assured the matter is getting our earnest
attention.

Seattle, Sept. 17.���It is settled in the
minds of the detectives that the $57,500
robbery of gold bullion in transit from
Fairbanks to Seattle was committed on
the Yukon river steamer Tanana and
the men who are supposed to have
stolen the precious ingots are under
surveillance.
But the booty is buried in the earth,
the detectives say, and even if they arrested the real criminals they could
not convict them and they might not
recover the gold. So they purpose to
starve the thieves out; to watch them
until they dig up the gold and try to
sell it. Any man who tries to sell Tanana
gold at any market in Alaska or the
United States will be held for examination.

COAL MINERS STRIKE
Two  Hundred Thousand   In  Wales
To Go Out In Two Weeks
(Special to the Optimist)
Cardiff, Sept. 19���By the action of
voting in favor of a strike, two hundred
thousand Welsh coal miners give a
tremendous impetus to the impending
British labor war. The strike is to be
declared within two weeks.
W. E. FISHER GOES SOUTH
To  Return   In  Three  Weeks  With
Hi* Blushing Bride
W. E. Fisher, the Crown Prosecutor,
leaves Prince Rupert tonight by the
Prince George for his home city of
Victoria. He told The Optimist this
morning that he expected to be absent
for about three weeks but smilingly declined to divulge anything further regarding the purpose of his journey south.
A little bird however, has whispered
to The Optimist that Mr. Fisher has
the very best of reasons for going south.
He is following his heart there, for shortly
after he arrives in Victoria there is going
to be a wedding, at which cermony Mr.
Fisher with a certain charming Miss
Anderson of Montreal will be the principals. Hence the smile and twinkle
when Mr. Fisher declined to reveal to
The Optimist the tender purpose of his
1 swallow flight southwards.
(Special to the Optimist)
New Westminster, Sept. 19.���The
Salmonbellies still retain their clutch
upon the Minto Cup, having beaten the
Nationals of Montreal by a score of
seven to three. It must not be assumed
however, that from the score the victory
was an easy one. On the contrary it was
one of the most stubbornly contested
matches the local team has appeared in,
and against the brilliant play of the
visitors the local team must be said to
have had luck with them.
The weather remained fine and there
was not much less than twelve thousand
witnesses of the great game. There was
little betting but the odds were two to
one in favor of the New Westminsters,.
The sports had seen the Nationals tried
out on Thursday at Brockton Point,
and it was a general conclusion from the
good team work shown that the Salmon-
bellies would at least have the hardest
game of the year. They were certainly
up against the real thing. The twelve
who won the championship from goal
to inside home in order are as follows:
L'Heureux, Catterinich, Gagnon, Decarie
Clement, Gauthier, Lalonde, Secours,
Dulude, Lachapelle, Lamoureux and
Dussault. while the spares are Laviolette,
Beauchamp, Boulianne and Duckett.
It was a great game from start to
finish, rough on both sides but there
were comparatively few forfeits..
ROYAL BANK
THIRD LARGEST
HAS ABSORBED THE UNION BANK
OF HALIFAX
The Royal Bank now Has ��� Hundred
and Eighty Branches Covering
Canada From the Atlantic to the
Pacific.
Banking circles and the business
community are all interested in the
purchase by the Royal Bank of the
Union Bank of Halifax. It is officially
announced that the deal was completed
on .September 8. This consolidation easily makes the Royal Bank the third
largest in Canada, and with a capital of $6,500,000, reserve of $7,100,000
and assets of $90,000,000. The deal
has been ratified by the Union Bank
of Halifax, on Wednesday, and by the
Royal Shareholders on Thursday.
' The Royal Bank has now 180 branches,
covering the country in a chain from
the Atlantic to the Pacific, and of these
no less than 15 are in the West Indies.
It is gratifying that in the hands
of the local manager, H. P. Wilson,
the agency in Prince Rupert is doing
a large and substantial business, and
is a favorite among business men.

Sydney, Sept. 19.���The steamer Carnarvon Bay, from Liverpool to Sydney,
was wrecked on an unknown reef off
Kings Island, between the mainland and
Tasmania. One boat, with the captain
and sixteen of the crew, has been picked
up, The rest of the crew were in other
boats and they are missing.

QUARTZ LEDGE
ON GOLD CREEK
PROSPECTOR   DAN  OLSON   NOW
IN   THE   CITY
Says Grand Trunk is Bound To Construct Copper River Branch Soon
As the Coal From Godfrey'* Will
Be Badly Needed.
Dan Olson, a well known prospector
from Kitselas, is a guest at tbe Premier.
He has a promising mining proposition
on Gold creek called the Avon group,
which are on a ledge containing gold,
copper and silver that is fifty feet wide.
Mr. Olson has been in this part of the
country for four years and was the first
locator of mining claims in that section.
They have open-cut the ledge in a number
of places and the ore shows the same
average results in every spot.
"We have been handicapped in the
past," said Mr. Olson this morning
"by having to pack in all our supplies
on our backs, and a pack of eighteen
miles from Kitselas is no joke. Now we
have a government trail the whole distance on which we can use horses and
this has helped very much. We have
four men at work, who will go on all
winter opening up the lead. I am in
town for a few days to purchase winter
supplies and shall leave by the first
boat for Kitselas.
"We are not bothering much about
the future as we shall shortly have a
railway within four miles of our group.
The Grand Trunk Pacific is bound to
build the Copper river branch line as
they need the coal. Godfrey's coal
property, which this branch line will
take, is a first class coal, and the company
is sure to begin to go after it very soon
now."
Mrs. Giles and Mrs. Hall arrived on
the Prince George from Montreal and
are staying at the Prince Rupert Inn.
Mrs. Hall is a daughter of W. J. McKenzi,
one of the pioneers of the city and in the
office of Foley, Welch and Stewart.
The ladies will spend a few days in the
city before returning south.
BIG   STEEL   STEAMER
The Bannockburn Due to Arrive Here
Tonight or To morrow Morning
. The big freighter Bannockburn is due
to arrive here tonight or tomorrow
morning and there will be work for a
number of men along the waterfront
unloading her. She is bringing about
six thousand tons of steel rails for the
Grand Trunk Pacific.
What,   No   Drunks!
It is surely a tribute to the effiacy of
the licensing system that since licenses
were granted in Prince Rupert not a
single case of "drunk and disorderly"
has found its way to the Police Court
which today as for several days back
has been absolutely quiet.
Tides an Important Factor in Completion of Sea Wall Which Delays
Contract Just Now, But Will Be
Finished  Early  Next  Month.
"When is the government wharf
to   be  finished?"
M. Albert the Westholme Lumber
Co's manager hears the question, he
declares, on an average fifty times a
day. "I am tired of hearing it" he says
"but my answer to it is more or less
plain. If the government wharf could
possibly be finished within ten days from
now, by putting on a thousand men,
the Westholme Lumber Co., would be
pleased to do it.
' "No contractor could make any
swifter progress than we are doing at
present. The work we are engaged on,
the completion of the sea wall can only
be undertaken at its present stage, at
low tides and then only for a few hours
at a time. The men have to get on the
job at whatever hour of the day or night
the tide may suit. About 75 feet of the
600 feet of sea wall remains to be completed. Once that is done we can work
continuously. It will be finished by
October 10th I expect.
"It must be remembered that we are
the only firm contracting in this district for reinforced concrete piles. These
piles we build on the spot. They are each
110 feet long, and on a rough estimate
I calculate about a couple of hundred
will be used. We have just installed a
new and very large derrick costing $3000
to handle these piles as they are put in
position. The work is difficult and requires  expert  and   costly  supervision.
"I cannot understand why people
imagine we would delay the completion
of this contract. It is proceeding as
fast as possible. Each month $750 in
cash goes out in wages whether the men
have put in full time or not; and there
is material ready on the ground to the
value of from $35,000 to $40,000. It
is to the Westholme Lumber Co's interest, let alone the public interest to
have the work speedily completed.
"As far as speed in our contracts
goes I may say that on our railway contract of 17 miles at Stewart, we have completed 10 miles in less than 3 months
which is about the fastest time made by
any contractor. Other people seem to
have trouble in getting men. We have
had plenty of labour from the first and
our men are well pleased with their
food supply and conditions."
NEWSPAPER MEN COMING
Big Party Has Passed Hazelton  On
Way to Prince Rupert
The large party of newspaper men
which under charge of C. B. Charlton,
general advertising agent of the Grand
Trunk Pacific, has been making a close
investigation of the country along the
line of the railway from Edmonton, has
passed Hazelton and will likely reach
here on one of the first boats down river.
The party comprises some of the leading newspaper and magazine writers of
this country and the United States and
a number of photographers" and artists
are with them. When they started oul
from the end of steel to make this west
em point they had a supply train o
forty horses, fully equipped for the loni
outing. THE  PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

CANADA'S GROWTH
The presence in Vancouver last week
of Sir Mackenzie Bowell could not but
awakened in the minds of many of those
who called upon him thoughts of the
wonderful change which had occurred
in Canada within a single lifetime.
When Sir Mackenzie Bowell entered
politics Canada meant the five provinces east of the Great Lakes; and even
in those five provinces the soil was but
partially occupied. The population of
Quebec stretched along the river St.
Lawrence, and in Ontario the great
northern portion of the country which
has since developed such immense resources was still a wilderness. The
great prairie country, stretching from
Lake Superior to the Rocky Mountains was still the home of the buffalo, and the preserve of a fur company; British Columbia, had, it is
true, attracted the attention of the
world by the discovery of gold on the
Fraser bars and in the creeks of Cariboo,
but, unless it were in the mind of Sir
John Macdonald, the idea of creating
a great British commonwealth extending
from ocean to ocean had scarcely been
thought of. British Columbia, which
was looked upon as a forbidding and
inhospitable waste, become the hope
of the empire as a producer of
minerals.
The city of Vancouver, with over
100,000 population, was nothing more
than the site of a sawmill even after
Sir Mackenzie had become a national
figure. It sould not but be with some
feeling of pride that he surveyed the
change in the face of the country on
his journey across the continent, and
reflected that he, himself, had taken
a very considerable and important
part in producing the prosperity which
he beheld.
Sir Mackenzie Bowell, during his
political career, a very active and honorable one and of greater duration
than that of perhaps any man now
living in Canada, has seen the large
northern region of Ontario and Quebec become the theatre of immense
activity. He has seen the western
wilderness, in his own remembrance
almost devoid of human life, become
the theatre of expanding enterprises,
with cities and towns and hundreds
of thousands of homesteads dotting
its vast area, and he has seen British Columbia, which was looked upon

Prince Kupert, B.C. Tjttf
A prominent Prince Rupert citizen
whose figure is a familiar one along the
waterfront and wharves, told the Optimist���with bated breath���of a vividly
realistic and dreadful dream he had the
other night.
, "I had gone to bed rather late" he
I said "after watching the Prince Rupert
! leave in the evening more as a sort of
pastime, I confess, than for any more
! practical reason. I remember watching
i her receding stern and thinking of that
1 warning legend upon it to keep clear
! of the propellors.
"Pretty  soon  after  going to  bed  I
' fell  asleep only to wake up suddenly
an hour later with beads of sweat on
' my brow startled by a dream so real
that I half fancied it had actually hap-
j pened.
"I dreamed that I had gone to the
I edge of the wharf to see the Prince
j Rupert leave, when suddenly my foot
| slipped somehow.   I staggered clutching
at  the  air,  then  at  the  rough  wharf
timbers and then I fell struggling, to
the water below, and felt myself fighting
hard for life.
"I was quite near the wharf piles and
could touch them as I struggled in the
ice cold water. My finger nails broke
and bled as I scratched and tore to get
a grip. All the time I seemed to be sliding slowly along the water line below
the wharf, past pile after pile, always
clutching at them and growing weaker
and weaker. "My God!' I heard myself
cry at last. 'Is there not a ladder���a
ladder���! Oh for mercy's sake a ladder
to cling to, and climb up from, this
cruel water!'
"But there was no ladder, and nobody
seemed able to help me though I saw
their white faces and outstretched
hands far above me. There was a rope
dangling but it was too short. I gave
one chocking cry, threw up my arms
and���woke as I have said safe in bed
but all- of a sweat.
"Well that dream worried me quite
a bit, and I went down and had a look
along the wharf, for it sort of struck me
it was a dream that wasn't all foolishness
like some dreams. I went and looked
specially for signs of a handy ladder or
two along the wharf that a drowning
man might have a chance to grab at
and climb up, or that a rescuer might
climb down to help him.
"Well, I looked,and as I looked I recalled the horridly real experiences of
that dream, and I came away resolving
to be mighty careful how I walked along
the edge of the wharf. For there aren't
any ladders, and that dream of mine ia
liable to come tr'tie for sonv> one, if not
myself, any day of the week right now.
Don't you think some one should be
told to fix a few handy ladders? I think
so anyway!"

GRAND TRUNK HAS NOT ABANDONED CONSTRUCTION
That It Would Stop On Main Line
Between Aldermere and Tete

"The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
Company does not intend to abandon
work on any part of( the system now
under construction or on any section of
it upon which work has not been commenced during the winter." said a prominent official of the company when
questioned by a Vancouver World reporter as to the reports circulated that
the company had abandoned the idea
of calling for tenders this fall for the
building of the 500-mile section between
Aldermere and Tete Juane Cache.
"The history of the Grand Trunk company proves that it has never abandoned
any of its projects and there has never
been an undertaking in which the company was so deeply interested as the
completion of the road to the Pacific

the company that he has made a mistake.
"There is no question but what there
is a scarcity of labor in the country in a
sense. The trouble is that the men who
follow this railway building are a class
who like to be where they can spend
half their time in places of amusement
and such resorts are not to be found in
the interior districts, particularly in the
newer sections of the country as is being traversed by the Grand Trunk
Pacific.
"But these things will not stop work
on the road. There is an influx of people to Canada this season, many of
whom will depend upon their labor for a
livelihood and will turn their attention
to the railway work, and I believe the
winter months will find a surplus in
comparison   to   the   demand."

Aug 80���80d
While some hunting parties have gone
out from Prince Rupert and returned
without having seen a sign of deer
others seem to have more than their
share of luck. Six fine deer, three of them
antlered', were brought into the city this
morning by a party of three foreign
hunters. Quite a number of people
going and coming on Second avenue this
morning paused in passing the Owl
Restaurant where the game is stored at
present, to have a look at the deer.
To those "experts" who have suggested that the deer are pretty well
driven off the adjacent districts this bag
will be a puzzler. It is understood that
deer were shot in the district just
across the bridge from Prince Rupert.

steamer on the Yukon for Fairbanks,
Tanana and other points below Dawson will not leave Dawson until September 24, the date having been advanced two days.
The steamer Jefferson, leaving Seattle
tonight for Skagway, carrying freight
and mail for places beyond Dawson,

will be forwarded by the trail overland
from Valdez.

Rev. W. F. Kerr the new pastor of the
First Presbyterian church preached his
first sermon in Prince Rupert yesterday.
There was a large attendance of the congregation, the church being filled.
Rev. Mr. Kerr preached a vigorous
and fearless sermon on the theme contained in Act 10. 33, though as he said
at the outset of his address, he did not
intend to adhere strictly to a text, but
rather to talk on certain general principles of conduct.
The question of church attendance
the new pastor is most emphatic. "I
don't ask a man to come to the week day
prayer meeting if he does not come of
his own accord" said Mr. Kerr "but
I do expect him to attend the church
service on the Sabbath Day. Some people may find it satisfactory to do their
worshipping on the bny or mountain on
Sundays. I expect the members of this
congregation to be in their places in
church on the Sabbath. During my
ministry so far I have had much trouble
from people who failed to fulfil their
promises as church attenders and church
workers. I want to be able to depend on
this congregation.
"Another thing I want of you is that
each member shall regard himself as a
sort of missionary. In this fresh and
growing community each has a duty to
perform, in this way for this church
amongst the newcomers.
"Thirdly, I want you to keep above
the vigorous western social life of the
church so as to fortify the church within
against the times of division and difference of opinion which are inevitable.
I pray God we may be unflinching when
such times come."
Rev. Mr. Kerr went on to talk of
visiting, warning the congregation that
though he would endeavor to visit as
frequently as possible he couldn't guarantee regular visitation of each house more
than twice a year. He then spoke out
plainly on the question of differences
between members of congregation and
their minister.
"Do not expect me to run around
soothing the wounded feelings of those
to whom my views may not appeal, for
I shall not, do so" he said. "I tell you
there is no man in the world who experiences such despicable usage as a
minister" he added "he is looked upon
as less than a liveried servant, and if he
dares to have a different theological
opinion from the member then he is
quickly and unpleasantly reminded of
the fact. But do not expect that I am
going round pouring oil on troubled
waters or soothing the ruffled feelings
of offended members like that,
"I am saying these things today"
said Mr. Kerr "because I do not know
you and it is easier to say them now than
at any other time.
The pastor went on to speak of the
church as a social necessity, and his call
to the ministry. He warned the congregation that though he had come into
the ministry believing in the highest
and best of all callings, there was still
the certainty that if the church failed to
uphold the cause of truth in its best sense,
or grew too narrow for the great spirit
of humanity, he would change his profession in the search after that spirit
of truth. "I do not say I want to leave
the ministry," he said "I believe God
called me to the ministry, I do not know
yet whether he will call me out of it."
The young pastor went on to speak
of the strength, service and heroism of
men in the Christian ministry and its
deep appeal to him. He referred to the
delicate and spiritual nature of the duties
peculiar to the pastors calling, concluding with the words:
"The ties which bind you to me if  I  a
am worthy will be such ties as earth can
neaver break." THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST

THE VILLAGE COUNCIL
Some months ago when the form of municipal government was under discussion in the city, the critics of the board of control or commission plan used the
argument that the salary expense of such a municipal body would be too much for
the infant city to pay. It was the most effective argument the few opposing popular
sentiment could muster. Last Friday The Optimist published the August salary
list. It surprised the public. They find that running even a small city under the
village council plan to be an expensive proposition. *
To-day the same few men who protested against the modern idea of municipal
government are advocating and supporting the big salary list without batting an
eye. It leads one to enquire if their criticism is sincere, or whether its object was
merely to defeat the plan of government which would not give power and authority
to men whose first interest is a private enterprise.
Is the large amount of money now going for salaries being well spent? Could
the city get better value for its money? The Optimist, without charging any official
with negl ct of duty or of not earning his wage, still believes that the city is not
getting the best value. It is the error of bad organization and an out-of-date system.
The village council scheme is working out just as it always has���incompetent
and expensive
According to the latest rhetoric spew of Alfey's discarded organ the Optimist
has not done many things, but then we  HAVE given Prince Rupert a newspaper.
Just by way of breaking the monotony of the misadministration the public may
look for a wind-bag and barbed bout by the daily newspapers over which first
discovered the Mayor's incomptency.

Our old pal the Empire has not been so angry since he went out of the meat
business as he was last Saturday when he devoted a twenty-inch mixture to accusing
The Optimist of selfishness. When we look at The Optimist subscription list and
its advertising patronage and job department we feel obliged to plead guilty to the
charge. In fact we might go a little further and say we are almost monopolists.
STEWART GIVES
FLAT DENIAL
RAILWAY CONTRACTOR ON THE
OUTSIDE INTERVIEWS
Hi* Company Has Never Refuted to
Undertake Further Contract* on
Transcontinental���Labor Market
Outside Very Mue A Improved.
J. W. Stewart, of Foley, Welch &
Stewart, returned on the Prince George
and was at his desk in the contractors'
offices early this morning. He was told
that outside newspapers said his firm
had refused any further contracts, to
which he smilingly responded: "What
do they say we are going to do next, go
out of business?"
Being assured that the coast newspapers had said his company had refused to bid for any contracts in the
four hundred mile stretch to Yellowhead
Pass, he said: "As a matter of fact I
have never spoken to any reporter since
I left Prince Rupert, except one in
Winnipeg. He came and asked me if
I had anything to say regarding further
contracts and I said I had not, and that
was the end of it. So whatever the
newspapers have had to say in regard to
our company's doings does not come
from me, and I feel pretty sure it does
not come from either of my partners."
"It said that the scarcity of labor was
the trouble. How did you find the labor
market, Mr. Stewart?"
"Very much improved, so much so
that I do not think we shall have any
further trouble in getting men for our
construction work. We are getting an
average of eighty to a hundred men on
every steamer and this will be kept up
until we have sufficient. They are a very
good class of men, too.
"One thing that helped to cause the
scarcity was the forest fires in British
Columbia, Idaho, Washington and Oregon, To fight these fires took away
thousands of men and that was largely
what made labor scarce.
"I suppose you have read in the newspapers that a Swedish consul has written
a report advising the men of Norway and
Sweden not to accept work on the Grand
Trunk Pacific line because of the number
of accidents from blasting and so on.
As a matter of fact, we have had very
few accidents, less than upon any contract I have ever been on. I am all the
more sorry for this report because the
Swedes and Norwegians are the best
men we can get���the best railway men
to be found anywhere.
"I am pleased that we are having a
little rain, and this will raise the river
and permit us to get in all our winter
supplies. Of course we have the railway
now, and that hepls some; but it is on
the upper river where our troubles come
when there is a low stage of water."
KASAAN HOTEL
BURNED DOWN
ALSO CANNERY AND ADJACENT
STORE
Thirty Thousand Can* of Fish and
Twenty Thousand Dollar Stock
In Store All Destroyed.���Only
Seven Thousand Dollars Insurance
Monday night at twelve o'clock
fire was discovered in the warehouse
of the cannery at Kasaan and before
daylight the entire plant together with
the hotel and the Heckman Trading
company store was a mass of ashes and
charred and blackened ruins says the
Ketchikan Miner of the 16th. There is
nothing to indicate the cause of the fire,
unless it resulted from a spark from the
boilers which seems almost impossible,
Mr. Wadhams, the manager, had left
the cannery but an hour before and had
gone to Shakaan, and the watchman was
eating his midnight lunch, whenjf ate took
the opportunity to destroy the place.
Besides the buildings and machinery
with a value of about fifty thousand
dollars, a pack of thirty thousand cases
of salmon with a value of a hundred
thousand dollars, were destroyed within the space of a few hours. It is believed
however that thirty per cent of the pack
may be salvaged as the fire did not burn

the interior cases and these have been

them.
The Heckman store with a twenty
thousand dollar stock was completely
wiped out and the owners will realize
but seven thousand dollars insurance.
As soon as he was notified of the disaster, J. R. Heckman hurried to the
scene with.the Novelty and succeeded
in extinguishing the fire that was burning the dock and slowly eating its way
into the inner boxes of the pack.
Mr. and Mrs. Fred Heckman lost all
their household goods and clothing, and
part of the mail went up in the flames
together with stamps and postoffice
supplies and fixtures.
The cannery and pack carried insurance and the loss will be partially
re-imbursed by the insurance companies.
Off  For  Bella  Coola
Wm. Manson, M. P. P. left today for
a trip through the Bella Coola District.
He was accompanied by Road Superintendent Robt. Jennings, Thos. Leith,
school inspector and Roy Moore, timber
inspector.
The committee of the Board of Trade
appointed to look into the matter of the
assessment of the railway property
appeared before the city council on Saturday afternoon and submitted its report. The report was read by Thomas
Dunn, chairman of the committee,
read the report as follows:
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the
Municipality of Prince Rupert.
Gentlemen:
The following recommendations are
respectfully submitted to your honorable body by the committee of five appointed by the council of the Prince
Rupert Board of Trade to consider the
matter of the assessment of the Grand
Trunk Pacific right-of-way in the city
of Prince Rupert made by the government assessor.
The Board of Trade, at a meeting held
on Monday the 12th day of September
instant passed a resolution unanimously
ratifying this report and endorsing its
recommendations, and requested this
committee to lay the same before your
honorable body.
The recommendations are as follows:
That the council of the city of Prince
Rupert enter into negotiations with the
railroad company to affect an arrangement on the following basis:
That the assessment of the railroad
right-of-way and waterfront property
in Prince Rupert for this year and the
following four years be lowered to the
amount proposed in the attached schedule but subject to the following conditions.
1. That whenever the railway company
alienate, by lease or otherwise, any
portion of the said lands that such portion be assessed and taxed as though not
railway lands.
2. That the taxes paid by the railway
company in respect of the particular
block out of which such alienation is
made be rebated in proportion to the
amount of land thus alienated.
3. That the railway company donate
to the city (a) a city hall site, (b) cemetery
ground (c) reservoir site.
4. That the railway company release
to the city all their rights in the various
odd sections of lands in the surveyed
portions of the city which have not been
surveyed into lots and which belong to
the railway company and the provincial  government  jointly.
5. That the railway company commence
to build the round houses and
within the city without delay.
6. That the railway company commence
building their drydock at the earliest
possible moment and prosecute the
same steadily to completion.
Signed, Thomas Dunn, P. I. Palmer
A. J. Morris, H. H. Clarke, P. W. Scott.
In reply to a question from Aid.
Mobley, Mr. Dunn said the report was
made simply as a basis upon which the
council could proceed to re-open negotiations. Mr. Morris said that they
did not expect the council or the board
of trade to accept the report in its entirety, to which Aid. Mobley observed
"You have to ask for a great deal in
order to get a little when dealing with a
railway company, and if you ask for a
little you are liable not to get anything."
The Mayor noticed that some figures
were too high and some, as it seemed to
him, too low. The schedule should be
adjusted both ways, cutting down a
little on the high and putting some on
the low.
Mr. Dunn: We do not object to that.
Mr. Scott said the committee did not
feel like dictating to the council but
merely presented the report as showing
that a large number of citizens desired
the negotiations with the railway to be
reopened.   It was not criticism but was
of Church and State

LIFE INSURANCE
Rev. Henry Ward Beecher:
"Your affairs may become involved,
and your property taken for debt,
but a thousand dollars insurance on
your life cannot be taken for debt;
cannot be alienated from your heirs;
and if you have chosen your Company discreetly, is subject to no
commercial risks. It is as nearly
sure as anything earthly can be."
Bishop Henry C. Potter.
"Life Insurance has advantages,
especially to persons of small means,
which it does not seem easy to over-
slate. To those of my own profession it furnishes a method of laying
by for 'a rainy day' of all the most
practicable and-effectual."
President Wm. H. Taft:
"A man in office without means
must abandon the hone of making
the future of his family luxuriously
comfortable. All a man can do under existing circumstances to safeguard his family is to get his life insured."
Hon. Theodore Roosevelt:
"Life Insurance increases the stability of the business world, raises
its moral tone and puts a premium
upon those habits of thrift and saving which are so essential to the
welfare of the people as a body."

IF NOT:���Can you give any good

aWa' SePl- 16���Commander Ro
per of the Canadian Navy made a
speech here yesterday denouncing in
trenchant terms all those who venture
to disparge the government's naval
policy.
He warmly deprecated the term
"tin-pot" navy.
Battleships without cruisers, he said
were like blind men without guides.
He had no hesitation in saying that at the
present moment Britain had plenty of
battleships, but not enough cruisers.
He added: "The present Canadian
naval programme,  namely,  four crui
sers and six destroyers, is formed to
meet the existing conditions, keeping
in view the amount of money avil-
able to the government. The cruisers
and destroyers will also be a useful
addition to the imperial navy in case
of necessity. Dreadnoughts cost money.
They also take a large number of men to
man them and docks of the largest
capacity to hold them. If therefore,
a policy of including Dreadnoughts
was embarked on a very large sums of
money would be involved and probably
considerably more than Canada can at
present afford.
"Criticise the programme by all
means, but do not let that criticism
take the form of placing obstacles in
the way of the navy and also dragging the navy into party politics.
Apart from everything else, the navy
should be separated from and above
party politics. The Canadian navy is
a branch of the service of the empire, and as such it is the duty of all
Canadians and the whole of Canada
to assist in their utmost endeavor
in making it a success and an efficient
service."

PRINCESS MAY SALVORS PLAYING   IN   GREAT   LUCK
While Dynamiting Rock For Making
|     Launching   Way*   They   Dislodge
Good Ore and DUcovery Was Not
Located   Before   Steamer   Left.
Victoria, Sept. 17���The salvors of
j the steamer Princess May uncovered
a mine when they were dynamiting
the rock out for the launching ways
to float the steamer from the reef off
Sentinel Island. The blasts dislodged
good ore. Specimens were shown to
the miners at Juneau and great interest followed. The reef had not been
located as a mineral claim, however,
up to the time the salvors oeft with
the Princess May. No assays were
made of the ore dislodged, but it appeared to contain copper of sufficient
value to work to advantage.
If any prospector goes to the reef at
low water he will think the reef has
been "salted." The Princess May
was bringing fifty tons of ore from
the Big Thing mine in the White
Horse district consigned to the Tyee
smelter at Ladysmith for smelting
when she ran ashore and this ore was
jettisoned in sacks, the majority of
which broke, scattering the ore over
the reef. Any miner who went to look
at the prospect uncovered by dynamite
of the wreckers will consequently find
some good "float".
A tug and scow has been sent from
Juneau to recover the shipment of
ore and much of this will be picked
up and sent on to its destination. About
one hundred tons of coal was also
jettisoned from the stranded steamer
and it is expected much of this will be
recovered by the Juneau people...

The Peace River Country
Recent reports from the Peace River
country are highly satisfactory. There
is an experimental farm at Fort Vermillion, which is in about 58 degrees
of north latitude, or over 600 miles
north of the International Boundary.
Wheat, oats and barley have proved
highly productive at this farm, wheat
yielding 28 bushels to the acre. All
kinds of vegetables, including tomatoes, vegetable marrow and cucumbers,
which are a good test of the climate,
thrive luxuriantly. As Vermillion is
considerably north of that part of the
Peace River country lying within British
Columbia, the latter may be expected
to prove even more valuable. A party
of visiting pressmen were recently at
Vermillion and from that point they
ascended the Peace valley, going by
land. They were enthusiastic over the
prospect of the country from an agricultural point of view. Of Grande
Priarie, which is a little to the east of
British Columbia, although a similar
area in point of fact extends within the
borders of this province, one of those
who made the trip says: "The country
cannot be surpassed as a farming country.
It would be difficult to And a quarter
section that would not make a desirable
homestead." He also says: "The
country lying south of the Peace River
and containing the Grande Prairie
districts contains about 4,000,000 acres
of good agricultural land. It is roughly
estimated that 20,000,000 acres of agricultural land lies tributary to the Peace
River."
This information only corroborates
what Professor Macoun told us thirty
years or more ago. There was a disposition to discount his statement,
but the experience of settlers has shown
that he was right in this respect as he
has been in many others. It may be
recalled by some that when Professor
Macoun stated to a Committee of the
House of Commons about the same
time that the region around Calgary
would one day be a geat cattle country,
he was laughed at. In comparatively
recent years an attempt was made to
convey the impression that he had been
wrong about the Peace River lands;
but time is demonstrating the accuracy
of his observations
The one great need of this region is
transportation, and a very interesting
question is as to whether this will be
first provided from Edmonton of from
some point in British Columbia. Our
own view is that it will be furnished
in both ways, and we refer especially
to the matter now for the purpose of
keeping before the public what we
look upon as a matter of prime importance to British Columbia cities,
namely, the necessity of providing a
railway from the southwest to the
northwest of this province, which would
bring a share of the great business to
be developed along the Peace River
to the cities of Victoria and Vancouver.

ability to realize that he was whipped.

Woman to be Canonized
Montreal Sept. 16.���Cardinal Vannutelli presided yesterday at the disinterment of the body of Mother Marguerite Bourgeois, founder of the Order of the Congregation of Notre Dame,
who will be canonized today.
Of all the men actually playing baseball, and eliminating Connie Mack, manager of the Atheletics, who owns stock
in the club, Frank Chance, manager of
the Cubs, is considered to be far and
away above all other active players in
his earnings from baseball. This, too,
is because Chance also is a stockholder
in the Chicago Cubs, owning one-tenth
interest.
Prior to. the season of 1908, Chance
received a salary of $5,500 a year, which
was augmented by his dividends and
the share of one player in post-season
and exhibition game receipts. Chance
had signed a four-year contract at $7,-
500 a year, but a dispute arose between
him and Chariie Murphy, president of
the club, and he announced that he
would not play with the Cubs.
Makes Secret Arrangement
A Chicago man was sent to California to arrange a truce between Chance
and Murphy. One of the conditions of
���he truce was that no party to it should
ever reveal the salary of the deal,
whether raised or continued the same.
���But, with his dividends on his one-tenth
interest, Chance earns between $20,000
and $30,000 a year, probably $25,000 a
year on an average.
