The matter of the G. T. P. assessment
came before the city council last night
in the form of a letter from Mayor Stork
setting forth the resultof the negotiations
with C. M. Hays at the council representatives' interview with him yesterday morning.
The letter ran as follows:-
"To the City Council of Prince Rupert.
"Gentlemen
"I beg to report that upon the request of Mr. Charles M. Hays of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Co I had
a conference with Mr. Hays this morning
accompanied by Aid. Pattullo, Aid.
Lynch and City Solicitor Williams.
"Mr. Hays expressed his dissatisfaction with the assessment of the G. T. P.
railway property, and stated that his
company would not undertake payment
of the taxes based on such  assessment.
"After a lengthy discussion of the
whole question we took this view, that
owing to the fact that the present assessment roll was prepared by the
provincial government and handed over
to the city, we are not in a position to
alter the assessment roll, and therefore
cannot in anyway alter the taxes to be
collected.
Yours truly,
FRED STORK.
There was no discussion upon the
subject, the mayor's report being accepted by the council.
RAILWAY SIDE OF ISSUE
D'Arcy Tate seemed to be disappointed
with the outcome of the meeting of
railway officials and the city council,
which took place in Superintendent
Mehan's office yesterday morning. He
said as much on the Steamer Prince
George last night, just before sailing.
He considered the position taken by
the council was preposterous, and the
city assessment altogether unreasonable.
"Why, our company's assessments
in Montreal and Toronto, the first and
second largest cities of the Dominion,
with all the company's buildings that
have been accumulating there for many
many years, is less than the assessment
placed on our realty in Prihce Rupert."
was the statement made by the celebrated counsel of the company.
"We have here in Prince Rupert,"
he went on, "three hundred and forty
acres of real property, which is un-
Bubdivided and cannot be sold until
1963 under the terms of the Dominion
Act and conforming to the bond mortgages. Yet the city has assessed this
three hundred  and forty acres for  as

much as the balance of the townsite,
which comprises seventeen hundred
acres with practically all the buildings
of the city on it. I think I can fairly
call this an outrage."
"And President Hays told the Optimis
this afternoon, Mr. Tate, that the company  did   not   purpose  beginning  the
building of the hotel and other improvements under the circumstances?"
"Certainly; that is the point. I have
not had time to read the Optimist yet
but take it for granted that is what Mr.
Hays said. He could not very well say
otherwise. It would not be a business
proceeding, and the company's dry dock,
shops, yards, hotel and so on must remain in abeyance meantime.
"What they may do at the council
meeting this evening of course I have
no idea; but from what the mayor and
the aldermen with him said, there is no
hope of anything being done to change
the situation this year. We might wait
and apply to the next council, going
through the same arguments and possibly with the same results. Large enterprises cannot afford to wait, or be kept
waiting, in this manner. What course
the company will now take has to be
decided as soon as possible and decided
definitely."
(Special to the Optimist)
Bilboa, Spain, August 29.���The situation in Spain continues to go from bad
to worse and if the country is not in
active revolution at the present time
it is very near to it. The general strike
is spreading everywhere, and this is the
plot of the Carlists aided and abetted
by clericals, who are actively fomenting
the outbreak.
Shipping in all the harbors is tied up
and very few trains are running. It is
said all the trains will stop tomorrow all
over the country. Thousands are idle
everywhere   and   inclined   to   violence.
This morning all the strikers began
to be violent and the troops were ordered
out to restore order. The strikers fired
on the troops and the latter retreated.
It is feared they are in sympathy with
the strikers.
Additional outbreaks are predicted
from various points, and news travels
slowly from point to point owing to the
strict censorship of the government.
H. P. Campbell, has moved into his
new premises on the Turner and Bennett
block on Third.avenue and has opened
up a most complete line of cigars, tobaccos,  pipes, confectionery and fresh
fruits.   Mr. Campbell was formerly on
Cen're street where he worked up  a
large business in a short time.   His new
store and new stock puts him in the front
ranks.  In fact he can safely claim to be
Prince Rupert's leading retail tobacco
n st.   His stock is the best assorted in
the city and every smoker will find his
favorite brand there.   Vancouver prices
prevail in all lines which is an attractive
feature. ...
In the spring Mr. Campbell will
put in a complete stock of sporting goods
He has faith in Prince Rupert and sees
in the near future such games as baseball, lacrosse, tennis etc. He will
have his goods here in time for the opening
CITY AND COUNCIL ARE STILL IN DARKNESS

the result of last night's council meeting
being again the reference of the matter

Many Dead Believed To Be
Under the Ruins.
Freight Train Blown Two Hundred
Feet From Track���Large Elevator
Thrown Across Railway Obstructs
Rescue Trains.
(Special to the Optimist)
Jamestown, N. D., August 29.-One
of the most terrific tornadoes that has
ever visited the state was experienced
in this vicinity last night. It entirely
demolished the town of Heaton and left
many dead in its wake. How many were
killed is not yet known. Many injured
have been dug out and cared for but it is
feared a large number are buried under
the ruins.
The velocity of the gale can be es
timated from the fact that a freight
train was blown two hundred feet off
the track. The train hands escaped with
but comparatively slight injuries.
One of the largest elevators collapsd
and fell across the track. This prevents
relief trains being sent into the district.
A wrecking train has been dispatched
from  here to assist  in  removing the
obstruction.
Nearly all the wires are down, so it
is only possible at present to obtain the
most meagre information in regard
to the extent of the disaster.

WILL GO ON WITH GAS PLANT
Company To File Plans For
Street Mains.
Should Council Refuse Permission
To Lay Mains, Company Will Test
Its Charter in the Courts���Mr.
Brutinel Is Confident of Winning.
"As the representative of the Tsimpsean Power Company I may say that
the company realizes that the city council
is not ready to approach the lighting
and power question and as our company
have no special object in forcing the
proposition at the present time we will
withdraw  the  offer."
This was the comment of R. Brutinel,
of the Tsimpsean Power Company, who
presented an offer to the city council
to put in a temporary plant, a summary
of which was given in. yesterday's Optimist.
This is the second proposition which
has been withdrawn because of the procrastination of the city council.
"But the Tsimpsean Power Company
is not leaving Prince Rupert," added Mr.
Brutinel,'"for we are going on with our
gas plant. To-day we will fyle at the
city hall plans of our proposed pipe
lines on the streets. The mains will be
on Third avenue, Eighth avenue, Sixth
avenue and Comox avenue. Other streets
will be served by branch lines."
Mr. Brutinel said he understood that
permission would be refused by the city
council and that he intended testing the
company's charter in the courts. He
is confident of winning.
The Tsimpsean company were unable
to secure a Bite from the G. T. P. and
intend purchasing one immediately.
John Cotes of London has the contract
for the plant his offer having been
selected from among ten tenders. THE    PRINCE    RUPERT     OPTIMIST

Tokio, August 29.���By an imperial
edict issued this morning the independent
kingdom of Corea, the struggle for whose
control started the Russia-Japan war,
will become a dependent of Japan. Great
Britain and Russia have notified the
foreign office here of their full recognition of the move and the hermit kingdon,
as such, ceases to exist. A military
order was issued ��� to General Terarechi
to take formal possession and news has
been received that, outwardly, the
change of administration was made
without a slip. Unofficially there comes
reports of revolt from Seoul.
On Friday morning Baron Hirata,
minister of the interior, summoned the
proprietors of all the Japanese newspapers
to his cabinet and requested them
to publish no unauthorized information
regarding the situation of Corea. He
pointed out that such publication under
existing conditions would only make
the task of the Japanese government
more difficult. The newspapers agreed
to his wishes and nothing regarding the
Corean situation, beyond official statements will be published here until the
promulgation of the convention.
The Japanese government which already had a large number of representatives in Corea, prepared to take over
the machinery of administration in
the   kingdom   without   delay.

DAMPENED OFFICIAL SPIRITS
President Hays and his party of distinguished people left on the Prince George
last night after a pleasant stay of a few days here during which they were much impressed with the city and its surroundings. Sir George Doughty in particular. Mr.
Hays always brings with him men of prominence but probably no one of them was
of more importance to the city than the visit of Sir George. In saying goodbye last
night he said impressively "I hope to visit you again soon: probably before your new
railway is completed."
This undoubtedly means that, as he has stated, he if fully satisfied the cons-
ditions and the situation for the building up of a great fishing industry on this coast
with headquarters at Prince Rupert. This being so one may expect him to go about
the establishment of such an industry immediately upon his return home to Grimsby.
He is a man of large means and of powerful influence. A man who does things when
he makes up his mind and does not need to form a financial corporation, with its
delays, in order to carry out any plans he may form, no matter of what magnitude.
It is to be hoped Sir George does come again, and soon.
The ladies of the company also enjoyed their trip immensely and were not slow
to praise everthing they had seen and experienced, even the weather. But among the
officials, all smiling and courteous and well-met gentlemen, there was a trifle of
gloom behind their charming smiles. The country was all right, the railway was going
ahead fine, but the legislation of the city council did not seem to agree with them, j
So perhaps their goodbye handshakes were not so cordial as those given at their
greeting.   And no wonder.   They had been enjoying the lovliest kind of weather, j
and were hilarious over everything- But a cloud "the size of a man's hand" came up '
and silence reigned.

CITY STILL
IN DARKNESS
CONTINUED   FROM   PAGE 1
A   WEAK STAND
The attitude of Mayor Stork in his letter to the council last evening stating
that they could not alter the city assessmenc against the Grand Trunk Pacific
as the assessment had been made by the Provincial Government, was a weak
effort to slough the issue. It was a time for astute business methods, requiring
firmness and sound judgment, but the aldermen attempted to throw the responsibility upon the late assessor who was appointed at the request of the citizens'
committee and paid by the city. The assessor was a city officer, but even if he
were a provincial officer it does not relieve the couna.il from any responsibility.
It was simply a cowardly way of avoiding taking a stand which might not meet
with unanimous approval.
The Optimist does not advocate that the city council should give way to all
the claims of the Grand Trunk Pacific, or to give up a right or just tax belonging
to the city. The people must be in control if we are going to have a city, and
that control must not be sacrificed; but in refusing to argue an apparently
reasonable claim or give reason for turning it down shows a very disappointing
weakness in the mayor and council.
One of the real causes for the present difficulty with the G.T.P., which promises to grow larger with ensuing weeks, has been the secrecy which the
council has maintained in its negotiations with the railway company. The question of this assessment has been before the council for some week but it was
kept secret. The newspapers and the public were not let in on it. Consequently when the representatives of the railway company came up here to treat with
the council and get public opinion on the question they discovered that the citizens were entirely ignorant of the issue. After the council have succeeded in
antagonizing the G.T.P. and bringing on a big law suit the citizens are being let
in���mostly for costs.
The council have a lot of questions that are pretty big for them to handle,
but treating them in private is not likely to strengthen the public's faith in them.
the Wolfe creek power for four years
the company reserving the right to the
surplus Wolfe creek water power. Or,
the company offered the city a half share
in the Falls River power provided the
city would assist in the development of
this power.
The Mayor was unwilling that the
details of these propositions be made
public at the present stage. The Tsimpsean proposition was not read but Mr.
Brutinel   was present.
Seeing this Aid. Barrow wanted to
know if the propositions by the Tsimpsean
Light and Power Co, might be considered as separate deals.
Mr. Brutinel came forward and on
the request of the mayor said that this
understanding of the Tsimpsean propositions could not be entertained as
the two first propositions set out in the
statement before the council were money
losers.
Aid. Barrow said that he would like
to consider the city engineer's proposal
to establish a steam plant at the foot
of McBride street.
Vhe mayor pointed out that in any
of the firm's propositions set out before them the city was expected to supply
poles and distributing equipment for
the current supplied. In the installation
of a small city-owned system the only
thing really temporary about it was the
engine and dynamo. The distributing
plant would be permanent and city
property.
Aid.Mclntyre said that he believed in
municipal  ownership.     "Let   us  instal
A local jurist of considerable merit remarks that a bad settlement is  better
than a good lawsuit
With three large prospective law suits already on their  hands  the  present
council can be said to be doing fairly well.
Aid. Hilditch gave the Optimist a left hander last evening when he said the
Optimist was the only paper the public could depend on for city news but the
reporter sometimes twisted his remarks. The Alderman should remember that
aldermanic remarks are not always intelligible to even a newspaper man.

a temporary plant as we thought of
before" he said, "half a loaf is better
than no bread. It would be positively
unfair to the citizens to go in for any
company's scheme at this stage."
Mr. Brutinel here asked the mayor
if he might speak. "From the stand
point of the Tsimpsean Light and Power
Co" he said, "I feel that I must withdraw
our proposition. We submitted the
proposition because we thought the city
wanted to solve at once both the power
and light problems. Now I understand,"
he went on "that the city wish to consider all the propositions more fully and
may instal a plant of their own." To this
postponement for further consideration Mr. Brutinel said he readily agreed.
"I am sure" he said "that the Tsimpsean
Co. has the only practical water power
for the purpose in view. We are not
wolves nor beasts of prey" he said
emphatically; "we are anxious to make
a fair deal with the city and are confident that in time the city of Prince
Rupert and the Tsimpsean Co., will be
on the friendliest terms and doing
mutually profitable business together."
Aid. Pattullo declared himself strongly
in favour of a scheme that would light
the whole city. If they had this laws
could be passed against the use of gasoline and coal oil.
The Mayor���"The only proposition
which the engineer gives us is the one
costing $30,000 of which outlay half
would be for steam plant."
Aid. Pattullo���'"Did they find time
to delay to make a census of the lights?"
The City Clerk���"No, they are to do
it tomorrow I understand."
Aid. Naden said that as far as cost
was concerned he believed that the
engineers' $30,000 scheme might prove
in the end the most ecominical and give
the most marketable supply. He thought
however that the Sash and Door factory
might perhaps be approached again with
a view to business and if their offer
, was definitely off that the city engineer
should be asked to get estimates for a
��� small power plant to tide the city over
for the present.
Aid. Pattullo���"I should much prefer I
' to take a month or two longer and have '.
' the larger scheme."
The mayor said he was at first inclined to hitch up with the Sash and Door
factory's plan. It would be only a
limited light supply at that, however,
and the city would put $6166 worth of
machinery into the Sash and Door
Co's hands. Probably the cost of plant
would total up to nearly $10,000 and
would not properly light even Section
One. A city owned plant could be put
up at McBride street on city ground
on a good rock foundation, and the
installation of the $30,000 plant would
be adequate for several years to come.
"1 am in favor of this scheme" said the
mayor.
Ald.Hilditch said that the Sash and
Door factory sheme looked costly but
It was not really so expensive and it
would be ready soon while the cityl
engineer's plant would take a long time
to be ready.
"But if we cannot get the Sash and I
Door factory's plant offered over again;
then I am satisfied that we can get
tenders through our "wn engineers in
the city of Prince Rupert who will be
ready to give us light in a very short
time. We could get estimates from firms
in Vancouver who could give us power
and give it to us early. But even if we
get only 2,000 lights from the Sash and
Door factory it is better than no light
at all. We were in the dark last year
it is true, and none of us liked it. I
thtok we should call for tenders on the
specification of our engineer and put
a time limit of say twelve weeks on the
work."
Aid. Lynch said that he had installed
boilers and engines nearly as big as those
proposed for the Sash and Door factory
scheme in two weeks.
Aid. Hilditch asked how it was that
the city engineer had figured it would
take so long to instal a plant, and Mr.
Burns who was present explained that
the engineer had been liberal in allowing
the time set.
Aid. Pattullo���"You know how long
it took us to get our telephone system."
The Mayor-"I think a complete
plant could be purchased in Vancouver"
Aid. Pattullo-'Td like to see the
Light Committee bring in a report
on this plan of getting estimates o
our own account. If we wait until next
year our successors in office will just
be in the same position as ourselves flfl
Aid. Smith���"I do not think we should
tie up with the Sash and Door factory
Rather than buy our juice from some*
company we should put in our own plant
and make our own juice."
Aid. Barrow���"We want to be sure
that the rate can't be so dear that no
one can buy it. I think the engineer
should be instructed to go ahead with a
plant of our own. In fact I am glad the
Sash and Door factory plan is oft. Our
own plant would be more efficient and
probably safer."
Aid. Hilditch who meanwhile had been
having a little talk with Mr. Burns rose
to say that he understood it would take
from six to eight weeks to put in a city
plant. ""Let us send wires down to
Vancouver and have a lighting plant
quickly" he said.
Aid. Pattullo "I am in favor of the
Lighting Committee bringing in that
report in written form."
Aid. Lynch���"The cost for a 150
Kilowatt plant will probably work out
much the same as that for a 75 Kilwatt
plant���perhaps less".
The Mayor���"Alderman Mobley is
in Vancouver now, and we can wire him
to go into the cost of a 300 h.p. plant.''
Aid. Barrow���"are we committed to
steam?"
Aid. Pattullo���"Is the site decided on?"
The Mayor���"Had it been decided at
first to put the plant in hand instead of
on the water front it would have been
ready by now."
Aid. Hilditch���"We are likely to be
here all night and yet do nothing."
Aid. Smith���"The committee should
attend to it."
Aid. Hilditch���"They have had it
and they have done nothing. You do
something."
Aid. Smith as chairman of the Light
Committee thought that if given fair
time the committee would still deal
with the matter in the best way.
Aid. Pattullo���"Let them get ahead
as expeditiously as possible but no: wire
to Vancouver. Wiring won't help us
any. We can't have it till the 1st of
December. We are not going to have it
on   any   consideration   this   winter."
Aid. Hilditch���"That's cheery news".
Aid. Pattullo���"News you might have
realized was coming anyway."
Aid. Hilditch moved that the matter
be referred to the Light Committee with
powers to use the wires as much as ever
they wanted to.
The motion that the matter be referred to the Light committee was
carried.
Mr. Durant then asked if his firm's
proposition was absolutely laid aside
and on being told that as matters stood
it wbs, suggested that as engineer and
agent for his firm he would be pleaded
to advise the committee on the matter
of a lighting plant as he had figures
necessary and other information useful?
to them at this time.
The mayor said that the committee
would be pleased to avail themselves
of  Mr. Durant's services.

SIR WILFRID'S PARTY LIKE BOYS AT PLAY
Transcontinental Dialogues and Breezy Talks Behind the Scenes,
Told by Augustus Bridle ln Canadian Courier.
The National Transcontinental Grand
Opera Company is not yet stranded.
The bright particular stare, Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and Hon. George Graham, have
played to capacity houses ever since
they struck the West. Travelling in
their own private train, as exclusive
as any circus, this aggregation of stars
of the first magnitude have kept on
trail of the advance agent without having
to jump a single hotel bill or leave any
luggage as security���and they will not
be under the necessity of counting ties
to get home.
The play bill ln the centre of this
page presents a few random scenes
from the Grand Trunk Pacific drama���
which a few years ago began to be
written round the legend, "Cox can't
Wait," and at which several playwright
people, particularly in the House of
Commons and the sanctums of sundry
editors have been tinkering ever since.
This opera contains two scenes; one from
Winnipeg to Monston; one from Winnipeg
to Prince Rupert. The griginal cost
of staging the eastern scene was supposed
to be fifty-one millions. This has been
amended. What the other scene cost
nobody seems to care; so long as it keeps
moving.
The photographs were taken at a
point west of Superior Junction. Similar
pictures might have been taken a few
days earlier of another impressive scene
on the eastern section; when the new
town of Graham, north of Fort William
was christened; but the photographer
was not there.
The actors are in the best of spirits.
Scene: Rather wild country; early
morning; background of spruce and
jackpine; tepee of some Cree Indians
over by a wooded creek.
Enter from the green room���Pullman
���the Premier, Hon. George Graham,
Senator Gibson, Mr. E. M. Macdonald,
Mr. F. F. Pardee, Engineer Poulin,
and Mr. McArthur (constructionist),
both of the G.T.P. and Secretary Jones
of the Railway Department.
Premier: "Ah! A perfect natural
theatre."
Macdonald: "Oh Wabigoon! List
to the murmuring jackpines."
Graham: "George! I'm hungry. I
could eat a bushel of huckleberries."
Goes picking berries.
Macdonald: "Hram! Wish I had
Graham's Irish temperament. He
doesn't seem to realize, Gibson, that
we're halted between Manitoba and the
Tory editors raising the deuce about the
cost of the G. T. P. eastern section.
Just a few miles from here are the
very rocks that George E. Foster was
chucking across the House last session.
A few hours more and we'll be hearing
howls from Manitoba about boundaries."
Pardee: 'Don't worry, Mac, The West
likes oratory."
Senator Gibson; "And there's room
for thirty millions in the golden, glorious
West." .
Graham: "Good! tt's poetry they want
I could write odes 'here.   I'll do one���"
Macdonald: "Yes, sort of a box-car
sonnet, eh?"
Pardee: "How many of the thirty
millions will be good Grits?"
Gibson: "That's what we're out to
discover."
Graham: "Sir Wilfrid laughs. What
now? Beg pardon, Sir Wilfrid!"
Premier (broadly hilarious): "Ah,
Graham! How I wish Edward Blake
were here. What a contrast we should
show  him!"
Graham: "Yes. Pity we can't use
that axlegrease allusion, though Sir
John should have made that speech
about the C. P. R. Still we can't kick.
The G. T. P. is far more spectacular."
Macdonald: "History in politics
is a queer thing. Now, George Brown
would have gone jn for the National
Policy if Sir John Macdonald hadn't
forestalled him. But we can't work that
out West. Farmers out there don't
believe in a protective tariff. Guess
we'll stick to tariff for revenue only."
Pardee; "Well, we'll soon be out of
the Tory editor belt, anyway. No
matter what the western part of the road
cost so long as it hauls out the wheat
soon enough."
Gibson: "What a magnificent country!
Dulce el decorum est pro patria���"
Sir Wilfrid: "Sh! We have not finished our work. Eh, my friends, but we
are a long way from Ottawa; here in
the haunts of the fur trader. Twenty-
five years ago here the tomtom thumped
to the whizz of the tomahawk. But now
we are near the borders of a land where
peace and plenty sit smiling upon every
hill; where the smokes of the settlers
rise like incense over a land that calls
the nations of the world; and the Grand
Trunk Paxific shall carry them."(Re-
tires a few paces to inspect the track.)
F. F. Pardee: "Wonder where Oliver
is now?"
Macdonald: "In the land of the midnight sun wearing Lochieux. Ho-ho!"
Graham: "Mac���I think you mean
Shoepacks."
Gibson: "That's nothing. Earl Grey
will wear moccasins anon."
Premier: "I say, friend McArthur���
what weight of rails are these?"
McArthur: "Ninety pounds, Sir
Wilfrid; made in Canada."
Premier: "Good! But I really should
have thought���that a steel rail was
heavier; much heavier.    Humm!"
Graham: "Say, boys, we've got time
for a song before breakfast. You know
I used to lead a choir down in Morris-
burg. What's the matter with a quartette? Here, Pardee���you take the air:
Senator Gibson, first bass���"
Pardee: "Out on first! Macdonald
to bat."
Graham: "Order, fellows! We can't
play baseball here. Wait till we get to
the prairie.    Mac���you'll take second
bass.   Now what'U we sing?"
Gibson: "Humm! How about that
touching parody���'Anybody Here Seen
Lumsden?'"
Premier:    "Ah, no! Sing O Canada!"
They sing; but the combined effect
is so much like "Yip-i-addii-ay!" that
the Indians in the background begin
to  beat  tomtoms.
Suddenly in the midst of the jubilation when the ardour of patriotism
is at fever heat and the party have forgotten both politics and breakfast in
the contemplation of the country, the
whole country and nothing but the
country���in rushes Secretary Lemaire
frantically waving a copy of a Conserva-.
tive paper dropped from a handcar
He makes direct for the Premier, who
adjusts   his   glasses. x
"Treason,  Sir  Wilfrid!"
The Premier: "Eh?" Scanning the
front page.   "What's this?   ]}Jever!"
All: "Why, what's the matter,
Sir Wilfrid?"
The Premier���paling a little; speaking
slowly: "Ah! Merely a canard. I am
sure of it. Hays would never do such .a
thing. No, no. There is nothing in this.
I am quite sure the Globe has nothing
of it. Absurd! To think, Graham, that
our good Canadian wheat should ever
get to the Atlantic by way of Chicago,
robbing us of the eastward haul. Why,
all this magnificent Winnipeg-to-
Moncton section would be nothing
but a white elephant!"
Graham: "Fudge! We should have
annexation next. No, we'll have the
Georgian Bay Canal��� or my name's
not George."
The Premier: "Yes. It must never
be said���that the road built by Tories
is most patriotic, more Imperial���than
the Grand Trunk Pacific. No, my friends,
every rail in .this road is a new link in
the Empire; every tie binds us yet
more closely to the Mother Country.
Have no fear. Mr. Hays will contradict this.   It is a Tory hatch."
Convention turns upon the Intercolonial, whose perennial deficit Hon.
George Graham is credited with turning
into a surplus, thereby depriving Tory
editors of much good slangwhanging
copy. Suddenly enters the Globe reporter reading aloud the head-line���
"Mackenzie wants the Intercolonial";
which so perturbs Mr. Graham that he
thinks he is an editor again. Comes a
lettergram wire from Hon. Mackenzie
King to the Premier: "Hays misbehaving; am quoting you copy of his
last two-line note���"
Graham: "By George! These old
roads are more troublesome than the
new one. Seems to me this iB a railroad
government���"
Pardee (Slily): "Say, Macdonald,
the Minister of Labour may be Premier-
ristic material; but it seems to me���"
Macdonald: "Hmm! Same here."
Graham, sonorously: "Come to
breakfast boys!"

Ottawa, Aug., 25.���A report is expected to be ready for the forthcoming
' session on the cost of the projected
new piece of the Welland canal. A departmental staff of three engineers and
twelve assistants are now making surveys of the proposed routes, particularly with reference to the quality of
excavation. A rough estimate places
the cost at $50,000,000. This would provide at 21-foot waterway. It is pointed
out, however, that it would also be
necessary to deepen the St. Lawrence
canals to make thera correspond. If
the new one were built the present
Welland canal would be required for
through traffic till those on the St.
Lawrence were changed.

ALDERMEN TALK
OF INFLUENCE
GRADING OF AVENUES ON WHICH
THEY  HAVE PROPERTY
Aid. Mclntyre Remarks on Grading
of Second and Third Avenues
Taken Exception to by Aid. Pattullo
And  the  Mayor.
At the City Council last night after
the discussion of the Lighting Problem,
Aid. Smith introduced and Aid. Barrow
���poke further on the subject of the grading of Third avenue which Aid. Barrow
understood was to be done before that of
Second avenue was finished. It was
necessary, he thought, to make sure that
this would not hinder progress on Second
avenue, and thought that Third avenue
ought not to be begun until Second
avenue   was   finished.
Aid. Hilditch thought as the citizens
were paying themselves for the work
they were entitled to say which avenue
should be done first.
Aid. Mclntyre said that the very fact
that Aid. Barrow thought that 3rd avenue
should wait till 2nd was finished on
account of the traffic on it was an argument that 3rd avenue needed grading
as much as or more than Second avenue
He drew attention humourously to the
fact that four aldermen resided on Second
avenue rather suggesting that this was
the reason why Second avenue was
having attention before Third.
Aid. Pattullo���"I'd like to ask Aid.
Mclntyre what he means?"
Aid. Mclntyre���"I will tell you that
Third avenue badly needs grading."
Aid. Pattullo���"I want to know if
Aid. Mclntjre means that any alderman
living on Second avenue has interfered
in the matter of the grading?"
Aid. Mclntyre said that he had re
ferred to no one in particular, but added that Aid. Pattullo seemed anxious
to be the scape-goat in this matter.
Aid. Pattullo���"If Aid. Mclntyre
doesn't mean to insinuate anyone in
particular then I have no objection to
his remarks; if he does, then he has no
right  to make  them."
Aid. Mclntyre���"Aid. Pattullo entirely
misunderstands me. I intended to joke
a little along this line, and did not think
Aid. Pattullo would take me  seriously."
Aid. Barrow���"Allow me to speak
one moment. Both streets are busy
streets and need nothing."
Aid. Pattullo���"I like a joke as well
as any man, but not a joke with an insinuation in it and that is why I took
exception to Aid. Mclntyre's remarks.
I do not think this is the proper spirit
for carrying on the work of this council."
Aid. Smith said that he had not
brought up this question to get aldermen
into a scrape but rather as a matter of
making sure that the matter was being
attended to as expeditiously as possible
by the city engineer.
The Mayor���"Our engineering staff
are mighty busy people and we don't
want to be on their neck all the time.
Incidental work keeps creeping up for
them such as the recent water pipe
extension which has leen made.
"But with Aid. Pattullo" went on
the mayor "I take exception to any
insinuations that the work on Second
avenue was carried out simply because
four aldermen and incidentally the mayor
himself happened to live there."
Aid. Hilditch ��� "Three important
buildings are being kept back because
the grades on Third avenue are not yet
ready. I think that is all that was intended by Aid. Mclntyre's remarks,
and I hardly think Aid. Pattullo should
have taken exception to them so readily.
If I were as ready to take exception to
all Aid. Pattullo's remarks as Aid.
Pattullo was in this case with Dr. Mc
lntyre's I would be at it every night."
Aid. Pattullo���"I have certainly never
criticised Aid. Hilditch's motives or the
motives of any other member of council.
I am not going to criticise the motives
of any member of this council because
I do not consider I have any right to
do so, and I merely expect similar
treatment from othe: members."

Trouble    Over    Tenders
There is a bunch of trouble looming
up over the Second avenue street grading
tenders. The tender of S. P. MeMordie
was made up on his own estimate of
quantity of rock and earth whereas those
of the other contractors was made on a
basis of 20 per cent earth and 80 per
cent rock. Thus the bulk prices are mixed
although the prices per yard would
work out satisfactorily. However,
the contractors will make trouble no
matter which way the award is made
and there is probability of a .aw suit.
An exchange wants to know whether
millionaires whould be classed with the
popnlar airs of the day.
