Price, Five Cents
LICENSE BY-LAW WAS SLASHED
$2.00 Road Tax Was Struck
Off the List.
Residents who Own or Rent Nothing get off Free.���Opinion is on
Free List.���Professions Licensed���
Many Lines on Feee List.
In their wisdom the aldermen decided last night that they has provided
fcr licenses on altogether too many lines
ol business and professions. They then
proceeded to cut them out and now
licenses are issued for only thirteen
callings.
The first license or tax struck out was
the road tax of $2 per year on all men
between the ages of 21 and 50 years ho
were not otherwise taxed. By cutting
out this clause all the gamblers, toughs
night walkers etc., can live here use the
streets, enjoy all the privileges of citizenship, get their living and never contribute one nickel to the maintenance
ol the city.
Anyone, so far as the by-law is concerned, is now permitted to sell opium
in any quantity and to anybody. The
license was east off.
Among those to be licensed, along
with the barristers and solicitors at
per year, are medical doctors,
dentists, architects, civil enginerrs or
electrical engineers.
Private bankers will pay $200 per
year.
In   Committee
In discussing the license by-law Aid.
Hilditch said that he did not favor the
tax of $2 or (road tax). He said it was
a direct tax on labor and he was opposed
to that. If the tax did not get after a
certain element that he would like
to see taxed, he would say cut it out
altogether.
Several men were present to hear the
discussion on the license by-law. Mr.
Montgomery put in an objection to the
road tax and claimed that the working
man paid the greater portion of the
taxes anyway. He also objected to the
high license on the hawkers. It was
knocking out the poor man and a man-
opoly creating.
Another man said he was a working
man and had paid $175 to bring himself
and his wife from Ottawa. If these
taxes were going to be placed on the
laboring man he was going to get out
pretty quick.
The aldermen then went over the
license   by-law   clause  by  clause.
The license on vehicles was struck out.
The licenses on wholesale, retail
business and hawkers and peddlers was
struck out.
The $2 road tax was cut out.
The $250 license on opium sillers was
cut out, as was also the license on wholesale and retail traders, express companies
gas, telephone, electric light, street,
railway, tramway, investment and loan
societies, laundry and wash houses,
livery stables, owners of vehicles for hire
and the license on all others in business
here not covered by the by-law.
The by-law as it stands now provides
for very few licenses and a very small
revenue. It will come up for a third
reading tonight.

TELEPHONE OR
NO TELEPHONE
IT IS UP TO THE PEOPLE TO SEND
A PETITION TO THE COUNCIL
Aldermen and Mayor have no Authority to Take Over the Telephone
Plant Without a Petition���Time
for Citizens to Get  Busy.
If the business men and the citizens
want the council to take over the telephone system and run it on the municipal ownership system it is up to them to
send a petition to the council. If no
petition is forthcoming the council will
have to grant the company a franchise
and that it a very short time.
Under the head of inquiries Aid.
Hilditch asked the council last might
what was being done in connection with
the telephone petitions.
Aid. Pattullo stated that the initiative
should be taken by the citizens. They
show considerable apathy in signing
the petition or taking the initiative.
They seem to think everything is up to
the council, whereas the council cannot
do everything. The assistance of the
people must be secured. They must
put their shoulder to the wheel and help
the thing along.
The telephone company have considerable money to pay out in a few days and
it is not fair to ask the men who have
carried this thing for the city to again
go down in their pocket and subscribe
the money. They are taking absolutely
nothing out of the project.
Aid. Lynch agreed with the above and
said the people should certainly get the
petition out and get it signed.
Clerk Woods said that the President
of the Board of Trade had promised to
circulate petitions.    He had been fur-

this morning signed the bill granting
statehood to Oklahoma and New Mexico.
HAS NO CAUSE
FOR COMPLAINT
LANE IN REAR OF LOTS 21,22 AND
23  IS ALL RIGHT
Sanitary Inspector Makes His Report.���Buildings Should be on the
Lots Says Mrs. Owen ��� Application for Private Telephone.
The sanitary inspector says that the
lane in the rear of lots 21, 22, and 23 is
perfectly sanitary and that Mrs. Owen's
object in complaining was "o have the
buildings on the lanes removed to the
lots. The council also took up several
other minor matters.
Those present were acting Mayor
Mobley, Aid. Pattullo, Mclntyre.Hilditch
Lynch, Smith.
The minutes of the last meeting were
read and adopted.
Lanes   are   Sanitary
A report from the sanitary inspector
to the health committee  was read as
follows:
"I beg to report that I have this day
very thoroughly inspected the conditions
of the sheds and toilets located on Second
avenue at the rear of lots 21, 22 and 23
respectively, as mentioned by Mrs.
Mary E. Owen in her communication to
the mayor and council under date of
June 18, and am pleased to state that
the said buildings and surroundings
in general are absolutely sanitary in
every respect.
"I learn from Mrs. Owen that hei
motive for entering the complaint was
not altogether from a sanitary standpoint, but from the fact that in the
opinion the buildings in question should
be on the lots and not in the lanes."
L. E. M'Farlane S. E.
It was moved that the sanitary inspector's report be referred to the streets,
works and property committee to report on further, advising upon the action
to be taken.
Aid. Hilditch thought that when the
building by-law was passed it would
deal with this particular matter,
Aid. Pattullo then withdrew his
motion. In the meantime Mrs Mary
Owen will be notified to that effect.
Aid. Hilditch introduced by-law No
7, to regulate the erection and sefety of
buildings. It was given its first reading
and carried.
Wants a Telephone
Aid. Smith said he had been ap
by the manager of the cold storage plant
and asked if the council would have an
objection to him placing a telephone on
the old telephone line running from the
old mill. He wished to connect with the
hardware store for the sake of convenience until the municipal phone was
ready. The line is operated between
Foley, Welch & Stewart's warehouse and
the hospital.
The city has no authority in the
matter and no action was taken.
Aid. Lynch moved the first reading
of a by-law governing the construction
of streets under the local improvement
system. The by-law was passed its first
reading. It is to be known as The
General Local Improvement By-law.
The committee then went into committee of the whole to consider the bylaw on licenses, other than liquor
licenses.
Agreement to Sell One Thousand Acres.
Then Believed Prince Rupert Town-
site would be Several Thousand
Acres.���Was Merely a Verbal Contract Between the Parties.
Vancouver, June 22.���E. P. Davis,
K. C, yesterday opened the case of
Moreton Frewen against Charles M.
Hays, president of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, before chief Justice Hunter.
In his opening the learned counsel
stated that he asked the court to grant
to his client the sum of three million
dollars for breach of contract. He admitted that the agreement upon which
this claim was based was a verbal one
but he could produce evidence to show
that it was a binding one.
With such well known capitalists and
financiers as Hayes Hammond and Sir
Edgar Vincent his client had entered
into an agreement with the defendant
for the purchase of one thousand acres
of land, said parcel being a part of the
several thousand acres it was proposed
to reserve for the townsite of Prince
Rupert, the Pacific terminus of the
defendant's railway.
Under this agreement his client was to
be permitted to purchase from the defendant any amount up to one thousand
acres at a price not higher than that at
which corresponding lots had prior to
the transfers been offered to the public,
less 25 per cent interest as a rebate for
Mr. Frewen's work in interesting foreign
capital in Prince Rupert townsite lots
and for advertising them among influential connections.
This contract had not been carried out
by the defendant although the plaintiff
has carried out his part of it in good
faith, and he therefore asked the court
to award his client damages to the amount stated.
The learned counsel submitted that
against this verbal claim the statute of
frauds would be pleaded, but he did
not see how counsel for the defence
could possibly succeed upon it.
HAYS COMING TO
PRINCE KUPERT
HEARING OF FREWEN CASE ADJOURNED TO MONDAY
Frewen Admits Advertising Sale of
Prince Rupert Lots Helped His
Proposition.���Defence is That the
Alleged    Contract    was    Illusory.
Vancouver, June 22.���E. P. Davis, K.
C, closed this afternoon his opening
argument in the damage suit brought
by Moreton Frewen against President
Hays of the Grand Trunk Pacific, but
had to ask for an adjounnment for
the production of evidence as to the
reserve price of Prince Rupert lots in
question. An adjournment was taken
until Monday, and it is feared that
President Hays will not be able to be
present as it has been intimated that he
will take a trip to Prince Rupert in
the meantime.
When Mr. Frewen was in the stand
he admitted in cross-examination that
wide advertising of the sale of Prince
Rupert lots had helped his proposition.
Mr. Davis said after adjournment that
in any case the suit will be taken to
higher court and he wished to get all the
evidence in at this hearing as was possible so as to have his side of the case
in first class shape.
The main point of the defence is that
the alleged contract was illusory.

The sanitary inspector says that the
lane in the rear of lots 21, 22, and 23 is
perfectly sanitary and that Mrs. Owen's
object in complaining was *,o have the
buildings on the lanes removed to the
lots. The council also took up several
other minor matters.
Those present were acting Mayor
Mobley, Aid. Pattullo, Mclntyre.Hilditch
Lynch, Smith.
The minutes of the last meeting were
read and adopted.
Lanes    are   Sanitary
A report from the sanitary inspector
to the health committee was read as
follows:
"I beg to report that I have this day
very thoroughly inspected the conditions
of the sheds and toilets located on Second
avenue at the rear of lots 21, 22 and 23
respectively, as mentioned by Mrs,
Mary E. Owen in her communication to
the mayor and council under date of
June 18, and am pleased to state that
the said buildings and surroundings
in general are absolutely sanitary in
every respect.
"I learn from Mrs. Owen that hei
motive for entering the complaint was
not altogether from a sanitary stand
point, but from the fact that in the
opinion the buildings in question should
be on the lots and not in the lanes.'
L.  E.   M'Farlane S. E
It was moved that the sanitary inspector's report be referred to the streets,
works and property committee to report on further, advising upon the action
to be taken.
Aid. Hilditch thought that when the
building by-law was passed it would
deal with this particular matter,
Aid. Pattullo then withdrew his
motion. In the meantime Mrs Mary
Owen will be notified to that effect.
Aid. Hilditch introduced by-law No.
7, to regulate the erection and sefety of
buildings. It was given its first reading
and carried.
Wants a Telephone
Aid. Smith said he had been ap
by the manager of the cold storage plant
and asked if the council would have an
objection to him placing a telephone on
the old telephone line running from the
old mill. He wished to connect with the
hardware store for the sake of convenience until the municipal phone was
ready. The line is operated between
Foley, Welch & Stewart's warehouse and
the hospital.
The city has no authority in the
matter and no action was taken.
Aid. Lynch moved the first reading
of a by-law governing the construction
of streets under the local improvement
system. The by-law was passed its first
reading. It is to be known as The
General   Local   Improvement   By-law.
The committee then went into committee of the whole to consider the bylaw on licenses, other than liquor
licenses.
Agreement to Sell One Thousand Acres.
Then Believed Prince Rupert Town-
site would be Several Thousand
Acres.���Was Merely a Verbal Contract Between the Parties.
Vancouver, June 22.���E. P. Davis,
K. C, yesterday opened the case of
Moreton Frewen against Charles M.
Hays, president of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, before chief Justice Hunter.
In his opening the learned counsel
stated that he asked the court to grant
to his client the sum of three million
dollars for breach of contract. He admitted that the agreement upon which
this claim was based was a verbal one!
but he could produce evidence to show
that it was a binding one.
With such well known capitalists and
financiers as Hayes Hammond and Sir
Edgar Vincent his client had entered
into an agreement with the defendant
for the purchase of one thousand acres
of land, said parcel being a part of the
several thousand acres it was proposed
to reserve for the townsite of Prince
Rupert, the Pacific terminus of the
defendant's railway.
Under this agreement his client was to
be permitted to purchase from the defendant any amount up to one thousand
acres at a price not higher than that at
which corresponding lots had prior to
the transfers been offered to the public,
less 25 per cent interest as a rebate for
Mr. Frewen's work in interesting foreign
capital in Prince Rupert townsite lots
and for advertising them among influential connections.
This contract had not been carried out
by the defendant although the plaintiff
has carried out his part of it in good
faith, and he therefore asked the court
to award his client damages to the amount stated.
The learned counsel submitted that
against this verbal claim the statute of
frauds would be pleaded, but he did
not see how counsel for the defence
could possibly succeed upon it.
HAYS COMING TO
PRINCE KUPERT
HEARING OF FREWEN CASE ADJOURNED TO MONDAY
Frewen Admits Advertising Sale of
Prince Rupert Lots Helped His
Proposition.���Defence is That the
Alleged    Contract    was    Illusory,
Vancouver, June 22.���E. P. Davis, K.
C, closed this afternoon his opening
argument in the damage suit brought
by Moreton Frewen against President
Hays of the Grand Trunk Pacific, but
had to ask for an adjounnment for
the production of evidence as to the
reserve price of Prince Rupert lots in
question. An adjournment was taken
until Monday, and it is feared that
President Hays will not be able to be
present as it has been intimated that he
will take a trip to Prince Rupert in
the meantime.
When Mr. Frewen was in the stand
he admitted in cross-examination that
wide advertising of the sale of Prince
Rupert lots had helped his proposition.
Mr. Davis said after adjournment that
in any case the suit will be taken to
higher court and he wished to get all the
evidence in at this hearing as was possible so as to have his side of the case
in first class shape.
The main point of the defence is that
the alleged contract was illusory.
MONTREAL HERALD FIRE
Probable that the Total Deaths Will
Amount  to Thirty-three.
Montreal, June 22.���Morbid interest
in the conflagration which destroyed
the Herald building is renewed from time
to time by the finding of more bodies
among the ruins. There were brought to

as those of Reuben Morrison, John Wade
and Gusta Lipps. It is now thought
likely that the total number of deaths
caused by the fire will amount to thirty-
three.

SASH AND DOOR FACTORY MUST
BUILD THEIR OWN ROADS
Or Wait their Turn Under the Local
Improvement By-law ��� Contrary
Action would{be*at Variance with
thefAdoptedJPolicy.
The sash and door factory will have
to build it sown roads and walks or wait
its turn under the local improvement
system which the council has decided
to adopt. The streets committee report
contrary to the company's request. The
members say that it would be at variance
with the policy of the council. It was
suggested by the committee, that a cash
bonus be given, although they would
not recommend such action. The committee's report and the opinions of the
aldermen are given below..
The streets committee reported as
follows:
It having! been represented to this
committee that the petitioners for
improvements through lanes adjoining
the sash and door factory were pressing members of this council for definite
action to the question of granting their
request, this committee has been asked
to make a report on the advisability of
granting or refusing the expenditure
asked for.
Your committee beg to report that,
in view of the fact that this council has,
in spite of many weighty and important
reasons which have been produced to
influence us to adopt a different policy,
have chosen to have all such work done
on the local improvement plan, the cost
to be borne by the lands receiving the
benefit.
We think it would be anything but
advisable to grant the request of the
petitioners. It would be at utter variance with the position we have taken in
this matter.
We would say that should this council
desire to consider the matter in the
light of a subsidy to an industry which
the city could with profit assist, that
we would much prefer the granting of a
direct cash bonus in something like the
amount that would be required to do the
work asked for.
We do not wish it to be understood
that we in any degree recommend that
the latter suggestion be adopted.
W. P. LYNCH
Chairman of the Streets. Works etc.
Aid. Pattullo thought that as the
council had no authority to give a cash
bonue without submitting a by-law to
the people, that the report should just
be received.
Aid. Lynch said that the committee
did not recommend a bonus to the company but merely suggested it as a way
out of the matter.
Aid. Hilditch said that under the local
improvement system the company might
petition the council for the roads and
walks, but as the cost was so small it
would hardly be worth the cost of the
paper it was written on.
The city clerk was instructed to notify the Sash and Door factory that the
system to be adopted was the local
improvement system and they would
have  to  proceed  under  that  system.
Aid. Lynch also reported that the
cost of supplying lumber for building
a conduit through Mr. McLellan's property on Second avenue would be $60
to $70. It would require over 3000 feet
of lumber at $20 per M. He thought this
would be a cheap way to look after the
water running down that creek.

SOCKEYE SEASON
OPEN ON SKEENA
FISHING  REPORTED GOOD, BUT
FISHERMEN SCARCE.
This Year the Opening of the Season
Is ten Days Earlier Than 1909���
Catching Twenty-five or Thirty
to Boat.���Spring Fishing Is Good.
On Sunday at the stroke of midnight
the Skeena River cannery men rushed
their fleets into the big river and dropped
their nets. It was sock-eye time and there
was need of haste for expenses have been
heavy and up to date there has been no
revenue. Besides, the fishing crews are
short and the boats are limited. Also
the price this year is high, which is an
incentive to get big catches.
Yesterday the boats reported a good
day, getting twenty-five or thirty to the
boat, which is a good start and makes the
canneryman smile.
This year the native fishermen are
showing the result of approaching civilization and good times. They refuse
to fish���at least many of them do.
Money and living is too easy elsewhere.
Very few natives from up the Skeena
came down, and the Simpson and
Metlakatlah Indians are not out in
their usual force. Last week a cannery
man went to Ketchikan, where native
fishermen are usually procured, but he
came back without one. Two other
cannerymen are up trying their luck in
the north this week.

larger than the British Isles, Switzerland,   Denmark   and   Italy   combined.
A climate superior to that of England or France.
Mountains, valleys and lakes more
enchanting than those of Switzerland

The shortes trade route to the Orient
from Prince Rupert destined in a few
short years to be one of the greatest and
most beautiful seaports of the world.
Mines which have produced over
$300,000,000 and an area of more

even prospected.
The largest coal deposits in the
world, the coal fields of the Kootenay

TRADE LICENSES ARE EXCLUSIVE.
The License By-law has passed its second reading in the city council deliberations,
and will probably get its third reading this evening. The by-law is remarkable in
its liberality of exemptions.
British Columbia is noted for its trade taxes, but Prince Rupert is opening
a new area by letting practically everyone escape the annual fee excepting the
billiard man, the theatre man, the three-ball man, the soliciting agent and the
doctors, lawyers, dentists, engineers, auctioneers and circus men Whether these
good fellows will all be tagged like the dogs is not known but they will no doubt
take great pride in being the only licensed persons in the city. They may be tempted
to organize an exclusive lodge.
It was originally intended to tax the man who lives here and pays on no real
estate assessment, but some of the laborers kicked and the $2 per head was lopped off.
Even the Chinese laundry man is let free.also opium merchants and the transfer man
whose big teams wear out the board walks. All have the open sesame to the hearts
of the council.
Only the poor professional man whom everybody loves and the rich pawn broker
whom everybody hates is going to have the privilege of paying.
Letters to the Editor
PERMANENT IMPROVEMENTS.
To the Optimist:
Gentlemen.���In view of the urgency
of a pay roll for our town and the great
necessity of permanent civic improvements. I trust our city government may
not deem me intruding upon their
jurisdiction by commenting upon discussions of principles given to the public.
Re frontage tax or general fund for
immediate permanent streets and sewers.
The writer is not familiar with how the
Provincial Law deals with the disfiguring of valuable property within
municipal limits, but he has a knowledge of municipal happenings in other
places where frontage tax was applied
for street improvements���To illustrate
John Smith holds property in a local
improvement district, for which he paid
a high figure. Street grade necessitates
a curb in front of Smith's-property
to a depth of 20 feet. When
permanent grade is established, pavement completed, John Smith's lot is 20
feet in the air above street grade. By
frontage tax John Smith is made to pay
for improving the street in front, next
to have the expense of cutting his lot
down to grade, next to pay for a location to remove the excess rock and muskeg
to, all of which he is obliged to pay to
improve a street that the whole city for
all time will derive an invaluable benefit
from. Does it occur to you that John
Smith might have a claim for damages
against the municipality for isolating
his property from an advantagious
business location, to one totally useless
without the expenditure of a large sum
of money to reduce his property to
grade? Is this not a case where an injunction from the court might stay
proceedings in street improvements for
an indef" re period, if the frontage tax
system   Iiould be applied?
In the infant state of our municipality
with so many absentee prospectors,
with so many large holders of municipal property, awaiting an improved
speculation value, benefitting by every
dollar spent in street improvements,
the cause looks reasonable, as though
the general fund principle should apply
to the permanent improvement of first,
Second, Third avenue and part from
McBride street to Eleventh street, both
inclusive, also Sixth avenue from the
Acropolis to Seal Cove Circle. These
streets for some years will be the main
thoroughfares, and business arteries
from which all other parts of the town
will derive an approximate increase
in value. Outside these special avenues
and streets from McBride to 11th street
the town should be subdivided into
local improvement districts, with the
request of substantial majority of property  holders for permanent improve
ments  within a given area being granted upon the frontage tax basis.
It does not seem reasonable that John
Smith should be compelled to pay for
grading the street in front of his property
that will render it comparatively useless
to him with the surplus rock removed to
the hollow will supply his neighbor with
a basement free of cost, and his ground
from street grade, with no more additional cost than to that of John Smith,
who is made to pay for suffering a loss.
Streets improved from general fund is
chargeable to capital account and is
always an asset.
Yours truly,
DANIEL W. MORRISSEY
HUGE POISONING PLOT
Three       Already    Dead     and     Two
Hundred    Suffering.
Vienna, June 22.���The authorities
are trying to unravel a huge poisoning
plot from the effects of which three
persons are already dead others are
suffering, some of whom may not recover.
There was a great pilgrimage to the
sanctuary at Trau, two thousand people
being in religious procession. Many
were taken sick en route, and some of the
cases resulting in death an investigation
was made. It was found that all the
springs along the road had been polluted.
A corps of doctors and nurses have been
sent to the ccene to relieve the suffering.
ASK FOR NATURALIZATION
Judge  Young  Insists  Upon   Proper
Procedure In All Cases.
A large number of applications for
naturalization were presented to His
Honor Judge Young this morning,
but very few were granted. The majority
of applicants were not present and those
who gave the affidavits were not present
either, except in a few cases. Thus the
judge laid most of them over. In other
cases the papers were not properly signed.
One man appeared who could not read
English and his lawyer had not arrived.
In reference to such cases his honor said
he could not grant naturalization. Being
a foreigner and unable to understand
English would not debar a man but the
affidavit must be properly interpreted
to him. The same proceedings must
apply in these cases as in all other cases
before the court, otherwise the proceeding would be a farce. He would refuse
to grant naturalization to anyone who
could not satisfy him in person or through
an attorney. A number of applications
were granted but about 30 or 40 will
have to come up again at the July court.
Good mess of butter cakes, good cup
of coffee and a good smoke to follow���
life swims in rose!

Id.
Mclntyre Got Personal Letter
from Ex-Mayor Sharp of Edmonton, Who Advocates Single Tax
nd Dots of Play Grounds.
Dr.
A. A. Mclntyre, alderman, has
jdved a letter from an old friend,
m. Sharp K. C, of Edmonton, an ex
jvor of that city and one of the lead-
j'legal authorities of the west, in which
given some very wholesome advice
tke Prince Rupert aldermen. His
st and main point is the single tax
aem. He strongly advocates no taxes
improvements or business men. He
ins out that it is the business man's
mprise which builds a great city and
[should be encouraged in every way
ft. For the benefit of the public
t Mclntyre has consented to have the
Kr published infull, as follows:
A. A, Mclntyre,
Prince Rupert, B. C.
Dear sir.���I am glad to know that
are one of the aldermen of Prince
pert. You have a chance to do some
work while the slate is all clear.
t I so far presume upon old ac-
lintanee as to suggest that you adopt
me of the ideas embodied in the
monton charter. Cut out taxation
improvements of all kinds. If tye
ople there are really wide awake on the
it cut out taxes on business al-
ether. Allow even the banks and es-
5s companies and other financial
ititutions which are in fact parasites,
escape taxation altogether rather than
J the burden of taxes on the business
o, whose enterprise would build up a
it citv. Retain the power to license
y far enough so as to gain control
J tke different enterprises which find
(mat within a city. That is to say,
W all sorts of places of public assess-
iit and public congress in order that
u'tary conditions, mental and physical
ire particularly the latter, may be
care of. I saw more partly the latter because publicity to
extent looks after the former.
I understand that you are blessed with
!��od survey, with provisions for parks
Wens, if not, or if you have too
�� rock, make arrangements for the
of a special rate every year to be
Wfal by the parks commission in
these fixed up, as well as the
|*'ards, etc. We fail to realize how
even the aboriginies of this country
in 'he natural beauty of the
mtry.
'��� have ruthlessly destroyed, worse
he vandals, all these points of
�� beauty. Wo have failed, utterly

across Canada is regarded as the first
step upward a government owned cable

NEWSPAPERS

before a peace is patched up and the fat
in the fire.
Have Complete Newspaper Plants
and Receive Latest World's News
By Wireless.���Plenty of Advertising   and   Good   Circulation,
Not the least interesting development of wireless telegraphy is the manner in which the invention has been
utilized for producing newspapers on
board ship. No longer does an ocean
voyage mean that one is cut off, for
the time being, from news of all happenings on land.. Nearly all the big
trans-Atlantic liners issue newspapers
on board, and every morning passengers are served with the latest news
at the breakfast table, just as they
would be on land. On the voyage of
the Lusitania during the recent general
election in England full returns were
printed in the Cunard Daily Bulletin
every morning of the results announced
in London on the previous night.
The circulation of the Bulletin is
over 2,000 a day, and has reached 2,500.
It consists of 32 pages, ten inches by
six inches, is excellently printed on fine
glazed paper and sells at 2 1-2 pence
per copy. It goes to press at 1 a.m.
and is read over the breakfast table
like the newspapers ashore.
Most the the giant Cunarders are now
equipped with a miniature printing
plant, so that the passengers on board
are able to secure a daily paper containing the latest world's news transmitted by wireless telegraphy. Practically everything of news value in any
part of the world appears in the ocean
daily as soon as it is printed in the
newspapers on land. Stock exchange
quotations, parliamentary items, notable
events and movements of famous people
all are duly recorded. Moreover, the
ocean daily often gets news that the
land dailies cannot get, says the London
Tit Bits, for it must be borne in mind
that the liners are in touch with one
and another as well as in touch with
land, and thus able to exchange exclusive
scoops now and then.
A very artistic production is the
Journal de l'Atlantique, published on
board the steamship La Provence of the
Compagnie Generale Transatlantique.
It has larger pages than the Cunard
Bulletin and each number is well illustrated, the news being published in both
French and English.
The daily of the steamship Kaiser
Wilhelm 11. has twenty-four pages,
and it has so many advertisments that
it can be given free to the passengers
and still leave the Norddeutscher Lloyd
a profit. Humorous illustrations are
a feature and a puzzle page gives much
amusement on the voyage.
The Atlantisches Tageblatt of the
Hamburg-American line is a sixteen-
page sheet. It is printed partly in German, partly in English, and has a story
by some popular writer.
The Express Mail, published on
board the Canadian Pacific Atlantic
liner Empress of Ireland, is a most
elegant affair. It has twelve pages,
and is enclosed in a handsome wrapper
stamped in gold, with an emblematic
design printed in the richest colors.
NEW STEAMER ON WAY
Steamer   Venture    Left   Vancouver
For   this   Port   Last   Night.
The Boscowitz' Steamship Company
gave a public reception on board their
new steamer. Venture, upon arrival at
Vancouver yesterday.
The length of the new steamer is
180 feet, with a 32-foot beam and a
draught of 21 feet.
The Venture left on her maiden trip
to Prince Rupert, Stewart and northern
points Tuesday  night.
The more love you give the more you
have left. Figure it out���it's the simplest kind of arithmetic.
What's the use of bewailing the fact
that you can't afford ten-centers, when
there are scores of millionaires who
smoke one-cent stogies because they
like 'em?

solid reinforced concrete and the partitions all fire proof. The ground floor

4 THE   PRINCE    RUPERT   OPTIMIST
BODY FOUND
IN A TRUNK
MAN MURDERED HAD RECENTLY
SOLD HIS FARM
Body Packed in Trunk and Checked
At the Railway Station.���Blood
Oozing from Trunk Led to Discovery of the Crime.
Portland, Ore. June 21���What is
believed to be a cold blooded murder
for the purpose of robbery has just come
to light and has caused a great sensation and excitement. A man named
William Johnson came here a few days
ago and with his wife stayed at a hotel,
The man was said to have gone home,
his wife paid the bill, and had the porter
carry a heavy trunk from her room and
check it to the railway station. Then
she left.
A couple of hours later, while the trunk
was standing on the station platform,
blood was noticed to be oozing from the
bottom. A policeman was called in and
the trunk opened. The body of John
son was found to jammed into it.
The woman was traced and arrested
and also a man with her named J. F.
Webb, who formerly worked in Vancouver
as a printer. A large sum of money was
found in the possession of the woman
and it has since transpired that her
husband recently sold his farm. The man
and woman are likely to be charged
with murder.
Regulation   of Wireless
Washington, June 18.���The Senate
today passed Senator Depew's bill regulating the use of the wireless. It requires all persons operating wireless
telegraph stations to procure licenses
from the Bureau of Commerce and Labor.
The purpose is to prevent interference
with government and other important
messages. There is said to be 60,000
amateur wireless stations in the country, many of them conducted by boys,
and it is claimed that in many instances
they have prevented the delivery of
business messages. The bill still requires the action of the house and the
approval of the president, but it is
claimed that if it becomes a law it will
have the effect of placing all wireless
operators under the control of the gov-
ernent officials.
Comptroller of Yukon
Ottawa, June 18.���George Ian McLean has been appointed comptroller
of the Yukon to succeed J. T. Lithgow, who  has been named Canadian
trade commissioner at Glasgow. Lach-
