Hundreds of Clericals Fleeing from
Portugal���Anniveraary of Execution of Ferrar on ThuredayCertain
to Engender Many Disturbances.
(Special to the Optimist)
Maffrid, Oct. 11.���Hundreds of clerical
refugees from Portugal are arriving in
Spain. They were given but a short
time to leave the country and meanwhile found that the publication of the
edict had aroused the people against
them, making even life uncertain.   The
Spanish people are inclined to resist
their entry and it may lead to rioting
and a demand by the revolutionists
that all the clericals shall be expelled
from this country also.
A semi-official report has it that Ex-
King Manuel has applied for leave to
take up his residence in Spain. This has
caused great uneasiness, and the friends
of the government are extremely sol*
icitous that-the permission be refused.
Thursday is the anniversary of the
execution of Farrar, at Barcelona. The
alleged assassination by the state is
certain to be commemorated by the
revolutionists and it is feared there will
be outbreaks all over the country.

Lisbon, Oct. 11.���President Braga
denies the reports of the number of
killed during the two day's fighting in
the capital. This morning he issued a
proclamation declaring the total number
killed not to be over sixty.
Bernadino Machado, the minister of
foreign affairs, at the request of the
provisional president, sets forth the
purposes and accomplishments of the
administration tv follows:
"The Republic of Portugal has been
proclaimed by the army, the navy
and the people. The maintenance of
order is completely assured. There
is general adhesion to the government
in the provinces.    The enthusiasm of
the public is unparalleled.
"The provisional government has
before it a great duty involving much
work. It has, in effect, a country to
make over. Concerning other programmes I can say nothing; we will
endeavor to put in operation the programme of the Republican party. This
includes a policy of decentralization
both in the local administration and
in the government of the colonies.
"The financial budget is to be
equalized in the best interests of the
country, and it will be made up with
honesty and fairness. The national
wealth will be developed. All national
alliances now existing will be respected and friendly relations with all other
states are desired. Freedom of the
press will be assured, and all star
chamber methods and opportunist laws
will be abolished. Public instruction
will be completely secularized relieved
from religious control, and the religious
congregations will be suppressed. The
plan is for a broad system of public
instruction, both primary and advanced, under government endowment.
The reorganization of the army and
navy, .whose patriotic services have
been beyond all praise, will be proceeded with."
The   provisional   government   is   as
follows:
President���Theophile Braga.
Minister of justice���Alfonso Costa.
Minister   of   foreign   affairs���Bernadino Machado.
Minister of finance���Brazilio Telles.
Minister   of   public   works���Antonio
Luiz Gomes.
Minister of war���Colonel Barrelo.
Minister of marine���Amaro Azovado
Gomes.
Minister   of   the   interior���Antonio
Almeida.
Civil   governor   of   Lisbon���Euzbio
Leoa.
The Provincial Government through
the Minister of Finance has communicated with the city council requesting
payment of the sum of $103,000 on
account of sewers and water works
constructed, at Government expense,
and repayable by the city, and for $16,-
000 of taxes before the city's incorporation, payable to the Government. Total $119,000. The matter has been
referred to the Finance committee.
There was no discussion of it at last
night's council meeting.
HELP CAME BUT
WAS TOO LATE
GUN   ACCIDENT   ENDS   LIFE   OF
F. O. HIRSCHING
Shot Heard and Call for Help Across
Water and Dying Man Seen to
Stagger up Beach, but Hurrying
Helpers Found Him Dead.
The circumstances attending the death
of Fred O. Hirsching whose body was
brought across from Porcher Island
yesterday are painful. Mr. McMullin
conducted an inquiry into the cause of
Hirsching's death from a gunshot wound
and Neil McArthy told how he had seen
Hirsching's boat just beached at the
shore across the water from his place.
He had heard a shot, and seen Hirsching
struggle a little way up across the beach
from the boat. Hirsching had called for
help after the shot, otherwise McArthy
would not have guessed that anything
was wrong. McArthy had gone for
a friend Johansen and they had hurried
togther pver to help Hirsching. But
he was dead when they got there. Both
barrels of a shot gun found by the boat
were discharged, and the dead man's
hand was blown away while the charge
had entered his armpit and torn up his
chest through the lungs.
As the evidence showed the case to
have been clearly one of accidental
self shooting, Mr. McMullin held that
no inquest would ht necessary. Deceased had a partner named Fred Elcik.
Hirsching who was engaged in farming
on Porcher Island was a native of
Cleveland, Ohio, and a member of
the Eagles of Roseburg, Oregon. He
was 36 years old. It is understood that
his mother and a sister are still residing
at Cleveland.
The Fraternal Order of Eagles at
Prince Rupert, are taking charge of the
funeral arrangements.

NEW ALLOY DISCOVERED
Outcome  of  Experiments  of  Many
Months���Is Called Duralumin
London, Oct. 5.���Duralumin, the
new alloy discovered by H. B. Weeks,
head chemist of Vickers Sons & Maxim,
is the outcome of experiments lasting
many months. It is believed that the
new metal, which is an excellent substitute for steel, will be extensively
used.
It is known that duralumin is being
utilized in connection with the naval
airship now being constructed at Barrow. The value of the alloy for aeroplanes and dirigibles is shown by the
fact that while it is slightly heavier
than pure aluminum it is as strong as
steel. It is also not so easily corrodi
ble. It is only two-thirds the weight
of brass and it will be possible by its
use to reduce weights by two-thirds
without sacrificing strength or durability-
Its uses for fittings and various appliances in connection with warships
may result in important developments.
If it were possible to replace steel by
duralumin in naval construction it
would mean the saving of several thousand tons in a vessel's displacement.

New York, Oct. 5.���The London
��� correspondent of the Tribune cables
An eminent Unionist organizer has
expressed the conviction that general
elections will be held in January, in
consequence of the failure of the veto
conference. His main ground for this
opinion is the effect of the coronation
pageantry in stimulating loyalty. The
republican movement in England has
collapsed, since Queen Victoria's jubilee
and King Edward's coronation pageants
have popularized monarchy and impaired the resources of democracy, and
this tendency will be strengthened by
the spectacles and revels of next year.
So well is this truth understood on
the Liberal side that the best organizers agree that the veto question must
be taken up early in the year or dropped altogether. If the government attempts to continue the present armistice and to defer an appeal to the country until the autumn of next year it
will find itself without an issue |of
paramount importance, and will be
overwhelmed by the swelling tide of
loyal enthusiasm for the Crown and
the Empire. This is the opinion of an
expert politician, and it is confirmed
by evidence of the" anxiety of both
Nationlist and Labor leaders to hasten the elections. The departure of
John Redmond and three associates
for American and Canadian bases of
supplies indicates ah urgent necessity
for filling the war chest and being
prepared for a crisis at the end of the
year.
The labor leaders at the Trade Union Congress have been even more
explicit in forcasting a general election in January and a close coalition
with Radicalism for legalizing political levels. The pressure of the extremists is increasing for fighting out
the constitutional issue instead of com-
* promising it by secret bargaining, and
the Free Traders have persuaded them*
selves that it will be easier to beat the
tariff reformers before than after the
coronation . The Unionists are expecting
a failure of the conference, and have
-atjea-dy happm  l-n panvnmi in  th" umall
towns, where vans are covered with
posters, heavily stocked with leaflets
and equipped with gramaphones and
magic lanters.
Lord Roaebery is expected to play
an important part in the political
crisis, since his resolutions dealing
with the reform of the Lords will have
precedence over the veto resolutions.
If the conference breaks down the
veto resolution cannot be blocked,
> and if the Prime Minister favors an
early appeal to the country he may
obtain in this way a release from an
intolerable situation, in which Messrs.
; O'Connor and Shackelton are constantly threatening the ministry with
desertion. and defeat unless their demands are complied with.
While the Labor party is organizing
an active autumn campaign against
the Osborne judgment by which the
energies of trade unionism are paralyzed, Liberal editors are exerting themselves to carry the country on a select'
assortment of foreign issues, such as
American discontent with the Payne
tariff and the German revolt against
the high cost of living. They are paying
more attention to these remote subjects
than to the veto question or anything
directly affecting the fortunes of the
English working man.

CANADIAN MINING NO GAMBLE
Speaking to a representatTve of Canada, the London Illustrated Weekly, Mr.
J. B. Tyrrell, of Toronto, who was for seventeen years conneced with the Dominion
Geological Survey, said: "Mineral prospecting in Canada is no longer the gamble
it was in the days when the work of prospectors in remote districts could not be
overlooked or controlled. New transportation and telegraphic facilities have
been so extended that the capitalist, in his distant headquarters, can soon check
the truth of the reports sent to him, and those working in his interetst are more
amenable to control."
Mr. Tyrrell is confident that there are still rich mineral areas in Canada as remote
from transportation facilities as thirty years ago where most of those now being
profitably worked. "For instance," he said, "in the Arctic islands of Hudson Bay
we know that there are many valuable coal deposits, which, as soon as the railway
reaches ports on that bay, will assuredly be opened up."
Mr. Tyrrell may be classed as a pioneer in new mining regions in addition
to being a geological expert. He was among the early ones in the Klondike and
there remained until the first discoveries that produced the Cobalt stampede.
After that he was in the Gowganda country and from there proceeded north ,to
the Arctic islands in Hudson Bay which he visited for the government many years
previously. It might be a good thing for some of Mr. Tyrrell's old friends now
resident here to suggest to him to pay an early visit to the Skeena mining district,
as he would there find the most convincing argument for his assertion that mining
in Canada is no longer the gamble that it once was.
Wonder if Aid. Pattullo ever tried to kill a skunk.
We can think of several people Alderman Pattullo might have meant when he
said:  "kill the skunk."
Because some enterprising citizens built roadways on the public highways
the city is not relieved of the reponsibility of maintaining the road. Any improvements built on public highways cease to be private property.
Having passed through a summer of sunshine and sea air, without excessive
heat, flies, dust or forest fires, Prince Rupert will soon enter a winter season which
for mildness, evenness of temperature, and lack of heavy snow, is unequalled
in the Dominion.

The aldermen have finally come to realize that the citizens are entited to a
financial statement once in a while. If they are open to a suggestion the Optimist
would like to say that the public are really more interested in who gets the money
than in how much is spent.
Aid. Pattullo regrets that there is not the same harmony between the people
and the council as there is in the council itself. Judging from some of the expressions
the aldermen hurl at one another,we venture to remark that there IS the same
brand of harmony without as there is within.
An alderman draws attention to the way the citizens of Seattle stand together
in times of adversity, and points to it as an example for Prince Rupert. The cases,
however, are not parallel. Prince Rupert's trouble did not arise from trade con-,
ditions but from the bungling of the council.   The aldermen acted independently

The question of pilotage in Prince
Rupert harbor was discussed by the
Board if Trade last night, it being
brought forward ny President A. J.
Morris in the course of the general
meeting. It had been pointed out
to him by Captain McCoskie that the
Pilotage Board of British Columbia
at Vancouver was talking of extending
its limits and in all probability would
seek to get this port under its jurisdiction. The Prince Rupert Board of
Trade discussed the matter oyer a year
ago, and the general opinion at that
time was that it would be far better to
have free shipping here, as they wanted
all the shipping they could get.
The wisdom of that course has been
shown by the growth of the shipping,
partly perhaps as a consequence. We
had the American ships calling here
on the way to and from Alaska, and the
effect had been the building up of a
considerable trade with Seattle. Now
these American boats all carried pilots,
so that they would only have to pay
one half the pilotage fee, and he did
not think, now they had an established
trade at this port, any of them would
object to that.
Mr. Brown asked about how much
that would be.
The president said he believed about
$20 to $30. The last big steel boat
to come in had taken on a pilot at
Vancouver, and that had cost over
$300. But the big boat before that
came in without a pilot, this being a
free port. Of course that was a clever
thing to do, but if' he had chanced to
hit a rock the news would have spread
all over that we had a poor harbor.
Mr. McRae asked what benefits
would come to the city from the establishment of a pilotage system.
The president replied none whatever
from the fees. The question was whether
it would not be better to have our
own system rather than be under the
jurisdiction of Vancouver. In the event
of this being the conclusion of the board
it would be necessary to apply to Ottawa
for the establishment of a pilot. A
pilot, he believed, received about $250

enough to cover this expense the shortage would be made up by the federal
government, and any overs would go
to the governemnt.
Mr. Clarke asked what course should
be taken in applying to the Dominion
government for the appointment of a
pilot.
This was explained by the president
and Mr. Clarke then suggested that
as it seemed an important matter a
committee should be appointed to go
thoroughly into it and report.
He would add that as the president
seemed to be better versed than anyone
present in the matter that he be one
of said committee.
Mr. Nickerson seconded, and the
motion being carried the committee
appointed was Messrs. Morris, Clarke
and Nickerson.

only trying to get for the people of
Prince Rupert their just rights. He
was going to go on doing so, and would
see that the citizens got as much as
ever they were entitled to in every
district as far as he could give it to
them. He announced his intention of
moving that a report from each head
of a committee or department of the
city's undertakings should present a
report to date showing exact expenditure on city's behalf and where the
cash had been expended so that they
could see if the outlying districts had
been getting their share.
Aid. Mobley explained the matter of
the hydrant referred to by Aid. Hilditch
showing that the question had not
escaped the memory of the Fire and Water committee.
Aid. Pattullo informed Aid. Hilditch
that he had asked the city treasurer
to prepare reports of expenditure on
similar lines to those suggested by Aid.

for any alderman to have to ask about
those matters in council. The information was always available at the City
Hall for any alderman who cared to
ask for it.
Aid. Hilditch: "I haven't asked the
council for anything at all."
Pattullo: "I was talking about finance."
Aid. Lynch closed the discussion
saying that he thought the time was
hardly ripe for a loan to be asked for
water supply purposes. The city could
hardly go in for any comprehensive
scheme, he thought, at this stage.
i. Mobley rose.   He said he had
jn listening to Aid. Hilditch's remarks
had felt inclined to say as one of
newspapers had said:   "Well, well,
J, your committee  is  killed!"    It

Hitch to begin playing to the gallery.
ftet all Aid. Hilditch knew as much
any one else in the council about
matter and its difficulties, and did
therefore need to talk as he had
It seemed very childish talk
or an alderman.   He wondered if the

At this Aid. Hilditch rose to contradict
imputation, saying he had never
his position as alderman to ask the
for anything and never would.

ALD. HILDITCH AND THE WATER
BUSINESS
Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Mobley Surprised at His Attitude, and Criticize It Rather Strongly���Aid. Hil-
ditth Makes a Reply.
The trouble arose over the city
engineer's report regarding the water
supply for Ninth avenue proposing to
put in a 1 1-2 inch main and charge the
fifty house holders requiring water at
the regular rates for supply. The report
went to the Fire and Water committee.
Aid. Hilditch rose to draw the council's
attention to the fact that there were
many other districts in need of water
besides Ninth avenue and suggested
that the needs of such districts should
be dealt with directly by the Fire and
Water������wm-tW  without   hnvifio-  fa
not know to whom Aid. Pattullo had
referred when he spoke of the leopard,
the Ethiopian, and the skunk, but he
hoped Aid. Pattullo would succeed in
slaying the skunk he was after. He
had no doubt that the Bank of Commerce
would advance the $50,000 required
for the lighting scheme, but they would
also exact their pound of flesh, and he
did not think it a very great financial
bargain to borrow $50,000 on debentures
at six per cent.
Later in the same discussion Aid.
Barrow asked anxiously which was the
leopard and which the skunk implied
in Aid. Pattullo's metaphor, and later
on Aid. Hilditch worked the phrase in
again.
He was talking about his motion that
the heads of city departments should
all bring in reports of their financial
position and expenditure for the city,
and said that the best way for the city
council to do its business was to work
in harmony with the people and within
itself. The only way to do this was to
let the people know what the council
was doing openly and without concealment. He held that his idea was the
best way "to restore their confidence in
us."
"If they have lost it," put in Aid.
Pattullo.
"Certainly if they have lost it," said
Aid. Hilditch.
"You use the word 'us' in the editorial sense of course?" questioned Aid.
Pattullo mischievously.
"I mean by 'us' the city council of
Prince Rupert," returned Aid. Hilditch
with dignity, and by 'they' I mean the
citizens of Prince Rupert, not any
skunks or Ethiopians either!"
There was a smile at this which ended
the discussion on foot at the time; and
the little group of citizens who came to
see that the council does its work
properly got quite hilarious in the
gloomy recesses of the council hall under
the nice new clock that now ticks away
on the wall there.

To The
REV.
F.   W.   KRRR'S  VIEWS
CHINESE QUESTION
ON
Special Application of his Sunday
Evening Sermon in View of Grand
Trunk's Position Regarding Yellow Labor.���May Prove Prophetic.
In view of the fact that the G. T. P.
has applied for permission to employ
Orinetal labor on railway construction,
and has been refused by the Provincial
Government, the remarks of Rev. F. W.
Kerr on last Sunday evening may be
noticed.
The speaker outlined extensively the
mineral and agricultural possibilities
of China and its 400,000,000 of population, and the recent introduction of
railways and western industrial methods.
"It may well be," said Mr. Kerr,
"that the day will come when city
councils or the Dominion Government
will not legislate adversely in regard to
Chinese labor, not because they favor
it, but simply because they cannot
afford to.
"The Chinese have once shown their
power in the Japanese boycott, and
Canada will do well to avoid putting
into the hands of China the weapon
of commercial retaliation. It is the
Oriental trade that will make Prince
Rupert pre-eminent among the cities
of Northern British Columbia."
Since his arrival in Prince Rupert the
tremendous possibilities of the Orient
have appealed to Rev. Mr. Kerr and as
his words indicate he is keenly alert to
the fact that upon those tremendous
possibilities of the teeming Chinese
nation, and the natural rescources of
their land hangs a big proportion of
the future prosperity of Prince Rupert.
Rev. Mr. Kerr before   delivering his
  sermon spent many hours of close study

come through the council. The same
will regard to fire protection water which
was badly needed in places. He thought
the city could get more revenue from
the existing water supply by extending
it. The Fire and Water committee did
not need to be told where the placet
were needing water. If they exerted
themselves a little to look around they
might find many places that would
take water and pay revenue for it. Besides the need of many citizens for a
water supply to their homes was not a
thing to be neglected.
He sited the example of Seattle
which had come through a period of
difficulty with its administration stand
ing shoulder to shoulder and its com|
munity backing them up and not
admitting to the outside world that
the trouble was felt at all seriously.
He fancied a little counsel, even from
a councillor, might not be altogether
amiss.
"You cannot change the leopard's
spots," he said, "nor the Ethiopian's
skin, neither can you change the skunk's
stink. The only thing to do is to kill
the skunk."
Exactly what the worthy alderman
implied was not very clear, but the
remark attracted the attention of his
aldermanic brethren and highly amused
them; and during various ensuing
discussions it formed an echo here and
there.
Thus in the Third avenue discussion
Aid. Hilditch said solemnly that he did
Hilditch. They did not often agree.
(Aid. Hilditch: "That's true!"). He
thought that.in this case Aid. Hilditch's
contention was logical.
Aid. Pattullo said that he was himself
arranging with the city treasurer for
a set of reports of this kind. They
ought not to be voluminous or too
detailed he thought, however, but as
brief as possible.
Aid. Hilditch said that was not
exactly what he wanted.
Aid. Pattullo thought that it would
prove to be satisfactory to Aid. Hilditch
if he would only have a little patience.

from the more self interested point of

The matter of the grading of Third
avenue came up at last night's city
council meeting introduced by Aid.
Lynch who moved that since the difficulty regarding the financing of the city's
improvement schemes was in a fair
way to be cleared up, tenders might
now be called for this work. Aid.
Mclntyre seconded.
The Mayor took the opportunity of
reminding the council that he had
from the first pointed out that there
was no cause for alarm over the financial
question. In conversation that day
with the manager of the Bank of Montreal here he had received a practical
assurance that not only would the bank
finance the city to the extent of the
$250,000 promised, but probably to the
whole extent necessary for improvements. The Mayor remarked further
for the benefit of the general public
that the city council was there to
transact the city's business, and that
it ought to be let alone to do so. Out>
side interference as far as he could see,
had not helped matters much, and never
would.
Aid. Hilditch called attention to the
previous proposal before the council to
have the grading stopped on Second
avenue beyond the junction of First,
Second and Third avenues. He said
that the Bank of Montreal's promised
advance of a quarter of a million was
not as great a thing as the Mayor
seemed to think. There was a lot of
Section One still to grade. He considered
the portion of Second avenue referred
to one of the least important portions
of the city to grade owing to the thinness
of the population there.
Aid. Pattullo suggested that the
mover and seconder of the motion should
let the matter stand until the report of
the joint committee regarding S. H.
Watson's contract should come in on
Wednesday evening.
Aid. Lynch said that the proper time
to have proposed stopping work on any
part of Second avenue was before the
contract was let. He denied flatly Aid.
Hilditch's assertion that the district
waa unimportant for grading, and said
that on the contrary one of the biggest
business houses in the city was situated
there, and one of the few hotels
deemed worthy of a license at the last
sitting of the Licensing Commission,
besides a considerable population. He
thought that Aid. Hilditch's remarks
were inspired by something he had seen
suggested by the newspapers; and aaid
further that the idea' of Watson's
swapping contracts in the manner
proposed as a business proposition
struck him as infeasible and ridiculous.
Aid. Pattullo said that he also had
had his doubts as to the possibility of
legally transferring these contracts, and
had meant to consult the city solicitor
on the matter. He hardly fancied the
transference could be legally affected.
Aid. Hilditch said that Aid. Lynch had
misinterpreted his meaning when he
said the district was'unimportant and
sparsely peopled. If Aid. Lynch had
been listening to what he had said he
would have heard that he meant the
portion of Second avenue beyond the
junction which he maintained was not
a populous district.
Aid. Barrow sweetened the discussion
with the humorous remark that though
the city had got the promise of $90,000
more than they had immediate need of
that was no reason why they should
.hasten off like the little boy with the
five cent piece to Aid. Lynch's store to
spend it.   (Laughter.)
Aid. Mclntyre was glad to see the
Mayor able to sit calm and unmoved
amidst  the  conflict  of  opinions.    He

thought the council should conduct its
affairs in as dignified a manner as possible. He was glad that the chances
were in favor of more money being forthcoming and explained for Aid. Lynch's
benefit that he had only moved the
stopping of the Second avenue work
on the less populous section when the
funds for grading seemed short. He
had himself consulted the city solicitor
regarding the legality of the exchange
of contracts by S. H. Watson, and had
been informed that if council, contractor,
and bank were all agreeable the|matter
could be accomplished. There was a
difficulty regarding the contractor's price
for rock excavation, however.
Aid. Pattullo: "The legal difficulty is
there even though we have $260,000
instead of the $160,000 we began with."
Aid. Mclntyre: "We are $90,000 better
though."
Aid. Pattullo: "That is the financial
difficulty removed but not the legal one.
Ninety thousand dollars may assuage
Aid. Mclntyre's legal sensibilities, however. One thing I want to say though,
and that is that I am glad to see Aid.
Mclntyre at least inclined to my view
that proper decorum is necessary in the
conduct of council business."
The Mayor here summed up the
discussion briefly. He said that he
was convinced the matter of the granting
of contracts for grading had nothing to
do with aldermen living on the streets
to be graded. He was in favor of the
grading of Third avenue being gone
on with as soon as possible according to
the advice of the city engineer.
Aid. Pattullo expressed himself as not
quite in agreement with the Mayor.
He requested that the Mayor and seconder of this motion to grade Third avenue
should give notice of the motion.
Aid. Hilditch said that in his opinion
the most effective system for the grading
of Section One would be that First,
Second and Third avenues should be
graded from McBride1 street to the
junction. As the avenues were graded
the intersecting streets also would be
graded. He thought the funds now in
sight would do this work nicely but still
held that the disputed portion of Second
avenue should not have the grading
carried further.
Aid. Mobley said it might have been
a mistake to start the grading there
at all, still the mistake had been made.
He himself had consulted an excellent
legal authority and had been informed
regarding this matter that if a single
resident on the portion of the avenue
in question objected,an injunction could
be served upon their* to continue the
grading and in the sume way if S. H.
Watson did one hand's turn of work

Vancouver Again.
That in a country as new as this���
only two or three years old, so to speak���
�� man should be able to cover three
thousand miles of its wilderness in the
course of a little over six weeks* business
"ip entailing many stoppages, is a
distinct credit  to  the   appropriations
ilWagon and trail making that have
*en given by the Provincial Govern-
"M during that period. It is rather an
extraordinary record because the man
WO made it is an expert mining engineer
wo stopped at many points to make
""able reports on the properties he
*" sent out to report. It is that of
Mwander Faulds, of Vancouver, a
PWW bog trotter who can no doubt
w many younger men ^ ^ Wugh
at the way he can cover the ground.
"���j it is not the man; it is the fact
nat travel can be done so expeditiously
"thia wild country that makes his
itinerary of more than pasging fatereBt

and ����J      .St hoVLm- and Jin�� Cronin,
h0Urs latCT he was on the steamer
Conveyor coming back to Prince Rupert.
From here he went to Stewart, ex-
perted a Portland Canal mine on Glacier
creek, where they were about to operate
a concentrator; and from there to
Bitter creek and on to the Bear river
country. He looked over the International mine there and says that from
the topography of that part of the
country he is inclined to believe there is
liklihood of considerable permanency
in the mineial deposits.	
Then he came back to Prince Rupert
and went to Graham island, taking in
Cowgitz mines No. 1 and No. 2, and
went all over the coal areas in Skidegate
inlet. Back to Prince Rupert and over
to Masset. Along Masset inlet to the
north and overland by Mexican Tom's
trail down the coast east by Lawn Mill
and Miller creek to Skidegate. Then
in a row boat from there to Queen
Charlotte City where the steamer Petriana was caught and he landed here
shortly after midnight Sunday.
Mr. Faulds now goes to Lockport
to view a property and hopes to reach
headquarters at Vancouver next Wednesday week. Thus he will have covered
about three thousand miles, in steamers,
row boats, canoes, by foot, on horseback and by stage, collecting much
exact information for the investors
back of him, in ten days less than two
months".
FIFTEEN POUND TURNIPS
On View at T. Coilard'a���Grown in
Kitsumkalum Valley
The phenominal fertility of the Kitsumkalum valley is evidenced in a remarkable manner by a turnip at present
on view in the premises of T, Collard
on Third avenue. Mr. Collard explains
that the tumip was grown on Mr.
Week's farm in the Kitsumkalum valley.   It turns the scale at 15 lbs.
On the same farm some of the finest
potatoes are grown and Mr. Weeks is
enthusiastic about the prospects of the
Kitsumkalum valley for agriculture.

Pretence on the Wharf
Its
At last night's city council meeting
Aid. Hilditch drew the council's attention to the fact that there were two
tons of dynamite lying on the wharf.
"It's all very well," he said, "until
something happens. Then there's a
great to-do over taking precautions in
future."
Aid. Pattullo reminded Aid. Hilditch
of the big consignment of gasoline there
too, and Aid. Hilditch added this to his
remarks.
Aid. Pattullo presumed the matter
was one within the province of the

Who Pay* for Repair of Streets Put
in by Private Enterprise
The damaging of the sid# walks on
Second avenue due to wagons being
pulled over them has attracted the
attention of Aid. Pattullo who pointed
out that part of the street were constructed by private expense. Of course
if the city intended ' to pay for the
damage done, well and good,   if   not
he had a very strenuous objection to
offer.
The Mayor suggested that the street
be closed tp vehicular traffic.
Aid. Hilditch said that this had been
done over the matter of Sixth avenue
and as a result the building inspector
had been called down for enforcing the
regulation.
Aid. Mobley said that these streets
put in by private enterprise were really
private property to some extent. If
private persons putting in such streets
were willing to keep them in repair
any teams they wanted to travel on the
streets would need to be allowed.
Aid. Hilditch wanted to know to
whom he would have to appeal for
damages if a team on one of these
privately put up streets broke a plank
and he chanced to stumble there and
break a leg, he said he thought he
would come on the city.
Aid. Mobley said that if a team broke
a plank on a privately built street, the
paths intersected wuold see that the
repair was done at once for their own
convenience and safety since the street
was built at their expense.
Building   Inspector Complained  Of
D. H. Morrison has lodged a complaint with the city council, that the
building inspector, Mr. McNeil, has
been very much too officious in the
execution of his work regarding the
closing to traffic of a portion of Sixth
avenue which Mr. Morrison required to
use for transporting material. The
complaint even suggests that Mr. McNeil was incilned to use personal violence
over the matter.
