Only a Bare Quorum Present But
General Feeling is in Favor of Pressing on With Grading Unchanged.
In the absence of the mayor last night,
Aid. Barrow was appointed chairman
o/a council consisting of a bare quorum.
Tbe aldermen present were Aid. Barrow,
Aid. Lynch, Aid. Mclntyre, Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Hilditch. The city clerk
read the minutes of the previous city
council meeting which were adopted
with a minor amendment.
The streets, works and property committee reported recommending that the
petition of those citizens requesting
that a 16 foot plank roadway be constructed from Eight avenue to Sixth
avenue around Hays Cove Circle, should
be granted. The council adopted this
report and the city engineer will be instructed to proceed with the work.
The same committee reported regarding the petition proposed change of
grade of Third avenue between, McBride
and Fourth streets, that as the proposed
change was considerable, and .here
were only fifteen petitioners, this change
was not recommended. The report
was adopted.
Regarding the petition by J. H.
Thompson and others that grade on
Eighth avenue and Hays Cove avenue
be lowered eight feet, the streets works
and property committee reported that
it was advisable to lower this grade only
four feet, and it was agreed in council
that the petitioners be advised of this
and given an opportunity to agree to
the four foot alteration.
The matter of grades came in for a
certain amount of discussion. Aid. Mclntyre recommended that the grade of
Third avenue be left aa it is, in order
that the city might get right ahead with

of the contracts for the work. Minor
alterations of grade might be carried
out under the city engineer's supervision
He embodied this in a motion at the
close of the council, and the motion was
carried.

on all three avenues.
The proposed change of grade on
Fraser street was also discussed a little.
The chairman Aid. Barrow mentioned
that ht' understood that the city engineer would be glad of the space on

we there was nothing in the way of a
change of grade on Fraser street of

FATAL DISPUTE OVER BUSINESS
	
Alphonse Richardson Shoots His Partner In Lonely Shack and
Gives Information to Police.-���Joseph Beaudoin Dies In
Hospital and Richardson Is Under Arrest.
ANOTHER GOLD
DUST ROBBERY
FOURTEEN THOUSAND IS TAKEN
I FROM NOME SLUICES
As the result of a quarrel which took
place at about eight o'clock last night
Joseph Beaudoin is lying dead this
morning in the G. T. P. hospital and
Alphonse Richardson who has been his
companion for some time is a prisoner
in one of the police station cells.
The affair took place in a lonely
little shack about a mile from the centre
of the city not far from the railway line
and in the neighborhood of Fairview.
This shack the men had tenanted together until last night. Both men were
laborers and had been employed on
the railway track.
About twenty minutes past nine last
night Alphonse Richardson appeared
at the police station evidently greatly
distressed and exhausted. He had
covered the distance between the shack
and the police station at top speed,
struggling over the rough road in the
darkness, hastening on a life and death
errand for help. For behind him in the
dimly lit shack, stretched across the
bunk there, lay his mate Beaudoin,
bleeding profusely from a shot wound
in his body, and suffering terrible agony.
The man who fired the shot was the
man who carried the news of it to the
police in his frantic appeal for help���
Alphonse Richardson.
Without a moment's delay, as soon
as they realized the gravity of the situation Chief McCarvell's officers hastened
to deal with it. The services of Dr.
Tremayne were requisitioned, and
Sergeant Regan with Constable Mc-
Eowen and the doctor hurried off
to the scene of the occurrence. They
had a hard job getting over the ground
to the shack, and a harder one to get
the injured man conveyed out of it
to the G. T.P. hospital. Beaudoin was
suffering badly when the party arrived
and Dr. Tremayne saw that his condition was serious. He was got on to a
stretcher and carried to a gasoline
launch requisitioned for the purpose
by Chief McCarvell, and as quickly
as possible conveyed to the hospital
and placed under the care of Dr. Edward.
Every effort was made to alleviate
his sufferings and save his life but without avail. Joseph Beaudoin died this
morning in hospital and matters look
serious for Alphonse Richardson.
No one witnessed the actual shooting.
The only ones who were present at the
time that the fatal shot was fired were
Alphone Richardson and the dead man
Beaudoin. Richardson's own story is
that the weapon a 22 calibre rifle went
off accidentally. But it appears that
the men although on friendly terms
with one another up till lately, had
recently had some difference of opinion
regarding a money matter. It is said
that they were arguing over this last
night, and it is pretty certain that they
were also drinking . Among the contents of the shack besides the blood
sprinkled furnishings were three whiskey
bottles, two empty and one half full.
Chief McCarvell is arranging this
morning for the inquest to be held on
the body of Beaudoin. It is expected
that this will take place tomorrow,
though if possible the jurors will be
assembled to view the body today, and
the inquest will then be adjourned
till tomorrow. In the meantime the
police are reticent regarding the whole
affair, but Richardson will appear
before the Magistrate tomorrow when
the charge against him will be preferred.

more arrests in connection with the
robbery of $14,000 from the sluice boxes
of the Pioneer Mining company. John
Tyberg, who is now locked up in the
county jail on this charge, is to be taken
back to Nome to answer the charges as
one of the robbers. It is presumed that

property.

arrived in aSeattle from Nome on Monday
evening. He was in company with
several other employees of the Pioneer
Mining company. The next day he
walked into the local assay office and
exhibited a bag of gold dust which he
said he had cleaned up in the Iditarod

in from that district nothing was thought
of the incident at the assay office, and
the man was paid $14,345, the value of
the dust.
But the Pioneer prople had notified a
detective agency of the loss of the dust,
and some of its men had been watching
Tyberg since his arrival. As he left the
assay office he was arrested with the
money in his possession. Tyberg protests his innocence and the Norwegian
vice-consul has interested himself in his
behalf.

JACK UP JACK AT
SIX P. M. PUZZLE
HAPPENED   ON   SIXTH    STREET
YESTERDAY   EVENING
When J. C. Weston's Horee Got Its
Hind Leg Through the Plankway
And Took Some Helping Out By
The Boya.
Jack is a horse belonging to Messrs.
J. G. Weston and Sons, transfer agents,
Prince Rupert. Up till 6 p.m. yesterday,
or to be precise, 5:45 p.m., Jack pursued
the even tenor of his way unknown to
fame. By the sixth hour of yester-eve
as the poet plats it, the street which is
also Sixth rang with the name of Jack.
It was "Hi, Jack!" and "Ho, Jack!"
and "Come on Jack!" and "Whoa,
Jack!" and "What ho, Jack!" and
"Giddup Jack!", and other remarks addressed to Jack which would melt cold
type if not our readera hearts. For poor
Jack had punched a hole in the planking
on Sixth street with his hind leg and lay
there unresponsive alike to appeal or
exhortation. The problem was clearly
how to Jack up Jack.
Right rapidly as again the poet hath
it���the multitude assembled. Sixth
street resounded to the hum of a mighty
throng all interested in Jack and Jack's
hindleg. Stalls, gallery, and pit���
(McMordie's sewer pit) were packed with
spectators. Jack had a score of helpers.
One man sat on his head, another held
his tail, a third groped between the
planks to find the missing hind leg;,
and the rest got busy with axe and saw
spade, shovel, crow bar, and peevie, to
clear away the pile of excavation dirt
that hindered their efforts, and to extricate Jack's hind leg by sawing the
planks between which it was jammed.
A lady in the audience retired hurriedly because she thought they were
going to saw off Jack's leg, and a small
boy got in the way of a shovelful of
dirt hurriedly flung, which rather damped
his ardor. Jack himself breathed hard
but said nothing; and by and by they got
his leg out and urged him vociferously
to "Giddup!" Nothing doing. Jack was
firmly convinced that he had still
"one foot in the grave," so to speak,
and it wasn't till the lads had lent a
hand and positively hoisted him on to
his four pegs that he believed, shook
himself,   and   dumbly   endorsed    his
driver's hearty thanks to the boys for
helping him.
"Oh thats all right, we're giving this
free tonight!" said the boys jovially
as Jack got yoked up again none the worse
of his mishap.
BULKLEY ORE OUTLOOK
Expert  Cronin   Find*  Development
Of Mineral. Is Very Rapid
James Cronin, the well known mining
expert, is back at the Prince Rupert Inn
from a trip of investigation he has been
making up the Skeena and particularly
in the Bulkley valley. He expresses his
surprise at the new discoveries of good
ore, saying they have now found ore at
fifteen hundred feet above sea level,
while up to this year none had been discovered much below timber line. There
were two places below Hazelton, he said,
where they have ore at fifteen hundred
and at twenty-five hundred feet above
sea level. These in his opinion carry
the surest indications of the chances
of discovering paying mines. He is very
much struck with the improved prospects of the Bulkley valley mineral region
since his previous tour of investigation.
MARRIED AT NINETY-SIX
Got  Gunner'.   Licenae   by  Mi.take
But Exchanged It
Baltimore, Sept. 17.���William Boyd,
aged 96, went to Towson, a suburb,
to secure a license for his marriage
to Miss Ann Eliza Daniel, aged 55,
but in the rush was given a gunner's
license by mistake. He did not discover
the error until after he had reached
his home at Stevenson, ten miles from
Towson. As there were no more trains
to Towson, he had to walk there to
secure the proper document and then
walk back home. He was none the worse
for his long tramp, and was joined in
wedlock to Miss Daniel.
Enormou.   Profit,     on    Lotterie*.
Washington, aSept. 19.���A profit of
nearly $9,000,000 accrued to the Italian Government last year through
lotteries run under the control of the
government. The total lottery receipts
were about $16,500,000, half of which
the state paid out in expenses and
winnings. The lottery business increased

General Smith at Genoa.

District and I* Arrested���Four
Other Arrest* at Nome.
(Special to the Optimist)
Seattle, September 23���Word has
been received here by wireless of four
more arrests in connection with the
robbery of $14,000 from the sluice boxes
of the Pioneer Mining company. John
Tyberg, who is now locked up in the
county jail on this charge, is to be taken
back to Nome to answer the charges as
one of the robbers. It is presumed that
he is one of a gang and was sent out for
the purpose of disposing of the stolen
property.
Tyberg is a Norwegian laborer who
arrived in Seattle from Nome on Monday
evening. He was in company with
several other employees of the Pioneer
Mining company. The next day he'
walked into the local assay office and
exhibited a bag of gold dust which he
said he had cleaned up in the Iditarod
district. As dust was beginning to come
in from that district nothing was thought
of the incident at the assay office, and
the man was paid $14,345, the value of
the dust.
But the Pioneer prople had notified a
detective agency of the loss of the dust,
and some of its men had been watching
Tyberg since his arrival. As he left the
assay office he was arrested with the
money in his possession. Tyberg protests his innocence and the Norwegian
vice-consul has interested himself in his
behalf.

R. B. Haldane and Lord Roberts inspec-
ed the Queen's Own Rifles today. Lord
Roberts arrived first and addressed the
regiment, observing that as he was honorary colonel of the regiment he wished
to bid them welcome in person. He said
that a great step was made towards the
unification of the British army when the
Canadian regiment and contingents of
Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania so
loyally and so promptly came forward to
take their part in the South African
war. Today another very important step
was made in the visit of the Q. 0. R.
when they were ordered to take part in
the manoeuvers.
The honourable artillery company entertained the officers of Q. 0. R. today.
Earl Denbeigh, president, welcomed the
guests as an integral part of the imperial forces.
Colonel Pellatt said that although the
regiment was just made up of citizen
soldiers there was behind them tens of
thousands. In the course of his address
he said that Canada was just as ready
and willing as they were to respond to
the call of the motherland.

District Attorney Rustgard suggested
to Judge T. R. Lyons that it would be
a good idea to have all saloon license
applications voted upon hereafter. At
present lists are taken around by saloon proprietors and citizens are requested to sign the petitions praying
that saloon licenses be granted. Mr.
Rustgard contends that many persons
sign because they do not care to incur
the enmity of the saloons. If a secret
ballot is arranged citizens can be free
to do as they please. Judge Lyons
said he would consider the matter.

TELEPHONE AND RAILWAY COMPANIES
There has been a lot of complaint from the public because the G. T. P. has no
telephone at their wharf and freight sheds. The Railway Company's docks, the
customs office and the Government telegraph office are practically the only business
places without telephone service and the absence of this commercial necessity does
not reflect very credibly on either the company or the government.
It is an historical fact that railway companies do not pay for their telephones.
In the East a few years ago an action was entered by an independent telephone
company against the Grand Trunk to compel the railway company to allow the
telephone company to place a 'phone in their freight sheds free of all tolls. It transpired during the trial of the case that there was an agreement between the Railway
Company and the Bell Telephone Co., whereby the latter furnished the former
with free 'phones and the former contracted not to allow any other 'phone on their
premises. The court decided the agreement unlawful and independent 'phones can
now get into Railway offices although they get no revenue from the instruments.
In Prince Rupert circumstances are somewhat diffsrent. The city is fortunate
in having shut out private companies from the telephone franchise and we are not
harassed by the probability of such deals as they have in the East. The Railway
Company may rest assured that Prince Rupert will not be giving any telephones
gratis and it will be with the company a case of pay like the rest of us. Of course
the Company may decide that they do not need a telephone on the plea that a public
convenience ought to be paid for by the public, but the Provincial Government
wharf will soon be finished and Hon. Richard McBride is sufficiently alive to have
telephones and other conveniences at the new dock. The G. T. P. will probably
have to come to in self defence.
It is queer that Alfy's organ does not realize that a yellow paper won't go in a
white man's town.
There has been a lot of criticism both East and West over the selling of town-
sites on the G. T. P. advertised as G. T. P. towns. The railway company could
quell the agitation by either confirming the claims of the promoters or denying them.
The Company should do it in order to protect their own interests as well as the public,
and thus add to the activity of the real estate market

Washington, Sept. 10.���The Klondike placer mining district in Alaska
has produced $150,000,000 in gold

Cole of Dawson states that the gold
output for 1910 will exceed that of
1909, when more than three and a
half millions was produced. Most- of
this gold, he states, was shipped to
the United States. A small quantity
went to the new Canadian mint.
The consul reports that rich deposits of copper ore have been discovered in the southern part of the

Max Kalish, the general manager of
the Humboldt Steamship company, arrived here on the steamer Humboldt
last night and expressed his pleasure
at the editorial in the Optimist which
took it for granted that the deal of the
steamship company with the Treadwell
Mining company would go through and
that in consequence Prince Rupert
would have another independent steamship line plying to and from the port.
"I was very much pleased with that
article," he said, "for I see as your
paper does, that an independent
steamship company and an independent
dock would mean much to your people.
I notice that you publish today that our
negotiations with the Treadwell company
have fallen through and that the Treadwell people have renewed the contract
with the Pacific Coast company. That
dispatch, you will notice, is dated
Juneau, and I have no hesitation in
saying it does not state the facts.
"In the first place, the contract has
not been renewed with the Pacific Coast
company. In the second place, negotiations are still pending between the
Treadwell people and my company.
The whole matter is still under consideration, and I would be pleased to
have you state this."
It is known that the Treadwell company has paid many hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Pacific Coast
company for bringing up supplies and
machinery and taking down to the
Tacoma smelter the concentrates and
ores of the company. With the increase
in the development of the mines this
large annual expense was growing, so
the company considered it would be
good business to buy a majority of the
Humboldt stock and start a new carrying
company of their own, putting on a
large freight steamer and using the
Humboldt for passengers and light stuff.
It was practically decided to purchase
an American bottom freighter and to
begin a general transportation business
with that and the Humboldt as a
passenger boat, adding other steamers
as the business warranted. It is believed from the trend of the talk of Mr.
Kalish that this will yet be done, and
that there is only some minor questions
between the two companies to be
settled.

DUMPING EARTH
ON CITY STREETS
ALD. HILDITCH FALLS FOUL OF
COMMITTEE ON QUESTION
Taxes Aid. Barrow With Causing
Delay of Committee's Report and
Thus Delaying Progress of Buildings.
There is a wheezing wheel in the
machinery of the strtsets, works and
property committee. The wheel ia Aid.
Hilditch. Early in the brief proceedings
of last night's city council his voice was
raised in lamentation regarding the
question of dumping excavation earth etc.,
on the streets when new buildings were
going on. On this same question it will
be remembered Aid. Barrow mildly
"roared" a week or more ago. It was
Aid. Hilditch's turn to roar last night.
He roared at Aid. Barrow.
"I want to know about this dumping
business" he said almost as soon as the
city clerk had laid down the reports
of committees "here are three important buildings being held up because the
streets committee can't agree on the
question whether or not earth dumping
on the streets should be allowed."
Aid. Hilditch wanted to know why the
streets committee's report was not
ready for presentation that night in
order that the matter might be thrashed
out in council and settled. He thought
it unnecessary that the report should
be delayed till Monday night.
Aid. Barrow said that the committee
must first consult the city engineer
on the matter.
Aid. Lynch entered upon an explanation at some length of the reasons
why the question of dumping which
had been readily dealt with in a few
previous cases by the granting of permission to dump, should now be held
up.   The fact was that they had a peti
tion for a large dump of about 1900
yards along with one of only 100 yards
or so to deal with, and must decide
where the line should be drawn regarding
this dumping on the streets. What
might be permissible for 100 yards of
dump would be impossible for 1900
yards or more, but in fairness to the
larger petitions it might be necessary
to wit hold permission in the case of
smaller ones also.
Aid. Barrow in his capacity as chairman here pointed out that the discussion at this stage of the council
business was not in order.
Aid. Hilditch: "It is in order because
it is through your negligence that the
report of committee was not presented
tonight."
Aid. Barrow (mildly): "Quite so
perhaps Aid. Hilditch, but at the proper time the matter will   be in order."
The council then proceeded to complete the business of the other reports in
order, and as soon as this was finished
Aid. Hilditch was on his feet returning
to the charge.
"There is a difference of opinion"
he said "between myself and the streets
committee. I believe it our duty to allow
the builders the privilege of dumping
earth into depressions where the city
has to fill for grade. I believe that
builders might be allowed to do this
under bond to recompense the city for
any over haulage expense incurred or
inconvenience to the city, on account of
the city having to use other fills if this
should occur. Other members of the
committee wish the builders to lay down
cash before excavation, I consider a
bond sufficient."
Aid. Hilditch desired to embody this
in the form of a resolution, but the chairman Aid. Barrow was not sure that this
would be in order as the report of committee was not yet before the council.
Aid. Pattullo though it would be in
order if approved by the council. "I
intend to oppose the motion" he said
"as I think the committee should have
the extra time to consider the   matter
and come to an agreement."
Aid. Hilditch: "If they can come to
an agreement all right, but they can't
agree, and it only means delay."
Aid. Pattullo: "That is a matter for
the committee, and I think that it is
not advisable that these differences of
opinion should be aired in open council.
Better grant the small delay. It is only
till Monday."
The chairman was about to put the
motion when Aid. Lynch rose to say that
he.thanked Aid. Hilditch for this suggestion regarding the bond, which
provided it were a responsible bond
he believed he could approve. There
would be some difficulty however in
making certain that the indemnity would
be secured to the city in the event say
of the builder's leaving the city before
the need for another fill for that he had
used were discovered.
The chairman then asked Aid. Hilditch to repeat his contention in the
form of a motion, but over this Aid.
Hilditch stumbled a bit. He suggested
that if the clerk had the record of the
committee's proceedings in shape he
would have no difficulty.
Aid. Pattullo here suggested that the
committee should be allowed to finish
its work before the motion was put to
the council.
Aid. Hilditch explained clearly his
idea regarding the city's acceptance of
bonds from builders instead of cash
on   account   of   dumping.
Aid. Pattullo again insisted that a
question of such importance should be
referred back to the committee.
The motion that permits for earth
dumping be granted to builders by the
city subject to bonds guaranteeing recompense to the city for any over
haulage necessitated through the fills
being used up, was however put.
The chairman called for "ayes" and
"noes" and had them repeated. Those in
favor were Aid. Hilditch and Aid. Mclntyre.   Against the motion Aid. Lynch
and Aid. Pattullo. The settlement
of the matter accordingly rested with
Aid. Barrow as chairman. He gave his
casting vote with the "noes" and the
motion was thrown out.
The council proceeded to other business
but just as they adjourned Aid. Hilditch
had a parting shot at Aid. Barrow regarding the day of meeting of the streets
committee.
"I suppose these buildings must be
kept back till after Wednesday?" he
said.
Aid. Barrow explained that the committee would meet as soon as convenient for its business.
Aid. Pattullo: . "This had better be
settled out of the council."
Aid. Hilditch: "It's a mighty good
thing to settle in council."
Aid. Barrow:   "Well the sooner we
adjourn now the sooner it will be settled."
The council accordingly adjourned
till Monday.

Seattle Authorities Uncover Gigantic  Real  Estate  Frauds
Seattle, Sept. 19.���Dewery M.
Peeples is at liberty on $3000 bail
bonds today and D. A. Hatfield of
Arlington, Ore., is under arrest in
that town, both charged with wholesale swindling accomplished by means
of forged mortgages and deeds. Peeples
was arrested last Saturday on complaint of a local man who declared
that he was swindled out of $20,000
on a forged deed.
The local authorities believe that by
the arrest of the two men named they
have unearthed a swindling plot that
will implicate a score or more of "business
opportunities" agents. Frauds reaching $40,000 have already been discovered
since the investigation begun, Hatfield
will be brought to aSeattle to stand
trial on a first degree forgery charge. THE

G.T.P. WHARF
Jas Sword  was a visitor in  Prince
Rupert a couple of days this week and
left   last   night   for   Queen   Charlotte
Islands.   Jas   Sword, the man, is just
like   other   men,   but Jas. Sword,  the
miner, is worthy of more than a passing
notice. He was in the Kootenays and a
number of other mining camps, and has
earned  a  reputation  that  many  men
envy.   He is a mining man of the first
grade and everybody knows him and
pin their faith on his opinions.    Mr.
Sword has just returned from the interior  where  he spent  several  weeks.
He is still following the same business
and he says that the minerals up the
Skeena river are wonderful.   He gained
a lot of information by careful study,
investigation  and  observation  and  he
comes  back   a  most  enthusiastic  advocate of the interior.   He learned upon
arrival here that the Silver Cup mines
were   selling   100,000   shares   through
J. R. Talpey, their fiscal agent.   To Mr.
Talpey,  Mr.  Sword said  the he was
selling some of the best stock in British
Columbia.   He saw the Silver Cup mine
and he was surprised at the quantity
and high value of the ore.   He claims
that it will be a great producer and a
big divident payer.
The Optimist hunted Mr. Sword up
and asked him for a story of his trip up
the river. He said that he was going to
the islands for a few days and did not
desire to say anything until his return.
He would then make a report which
would be highly in favor of the up river
country.
Hospital Donations
To The Editor of The Optimist:
SIR,-
In reading the report from the hospital
committee, I was very much taken aback
by seeing the fact that the members of
that philantropic body in Prince Rupert
known as the "Builders' Exchange,"
had withdrawn their very very generous
subscriptions to the full amount of one
hunderd and twenty-five dollars, from
ithe hospital fund. I believe they gave
as their reason that certain conditions
regarding the work on the building
were not complied with. These conditions were such (so I have been told)
that the contractor who might receive
the contract, could work his men as
many hours a day as he saw fit, and pay
them whatever wages he wished, so long
as he did not pay them, (or even the
foreman) at a rate of more than five
dollars for a working day of nine hours.
He might pay them as much less as he
chose, or as they would work for.
It looks very much to me as though
the "Builders' Exchange" wanted to
impress on the public notice how much
the hospital fund would be the loser'
because the Board was frowned upon
by this great Exchange. What a mighty
j blow was struck when the full amount
of one hundred and twenty-five dollars
was withdrwan from a total fund of
nearly twenty-two thousand dollars!
As a matter of fact, the Exchange members' lowest tender for a non-union job,
was one hundred dollars above that of
Mr. Hick's who furthermore was willing
to pay the carpenters their wages of
five dollars for eight hours.
Would it be asking too much, Mr.
Editor, for one to enquire through
your columns who were the "cheap
skaters," who moved and seconded the
motion that the Exchange members
should withdraw their susbcriptions,
and also who were the financially broken,
would-be contractors who voted in
favor of the same?
I am sorry to see that we have a class
in this new city, who for personal
spite would not help such a necessary
institution as a General Hospital. For
the benefit of the Board of Directors
I may say I do not think that the Carpenters' Union, or union carpenters are
so cheap as to let the hospital fund be
any the loser by the action of that
cantankerous body known as the Builders' Exchange.
Thanking you in advance, I remain,
Yours, etc.,
DAVID 0. KEYSER.
P. S.���If the Hospital Board wish to
act upon the suggestion of Magistrate
Carss, and have the letter from the
Builders' Exchange framed, I am sure
that any of the Union boys would be
only too pleased to frame it free of
charge.

MINTING GOLD
IS SUSPENDED
BELIEVED   AMERICANS   PREFER
PAPER  MONEY
Only Practical Use For Gold Coins
Is Paying European Trade Balances
Which Can Be Done as Well In
Gold Bars.
Philadelphia, .Sept. 19.���The truth
has been driven home upon the officials of the United States mint that
the people of the country do not elect
to use coins when they can have paper
money. In places remote from the
financial centers, where money is not
so easily changed, silver dollars, gold
pieces and other forms of metal money
are common. But the city man, and more
and more every other kind of man, is
getting away from the coin and reaching
after the paper money. The cause lies
in its greater ease of handling and carrying about the person. The only practical
use for coins is paying trade balances in
Europe.
For many years it has been customary to coin at the mints all the
gold bullion and foreign coins that
might be offered there for the purpose. And after these coins are made
they drift into the treasury vaults and
bank vaults and refuse to circulate to
any large extent, being sent to New
York to fill the export orders for gold
from foreign governments.
In consequence of the facts enumerated the officials of the mint and
treasury have decided to stop the
coinage of gold, for a time at least,
and to put out only such an amount
of the metal money as may really find
use in this country.
Two important economies will be
effected by the change. The government will save from $200,000 to $500,000
annually in the mint expenses, and
America will then cease to be the chief
center from which foreign countries
derive fresh supplies of coin. The gold
bullion is just as good as the coin to
issue certificates upon, and under the
proposed plan if foreign countries want
gold from the United States they can
take it in bars or certificates instead of
coin.
Some legislation will be required
before the plan can be fully carried
out by the treasury, but it is proposed
at once to reduce the output to the
lowest practical point.
Railway   Surveys   Join
The Grand Trunk survey party under
Engineer Gunn have finished the work
of final survey from Fort George to a
point west where their lines joined those
of a party from Prince Rupert. Now the
party is working down the Fraser,
ostensibly on the survey of a line from
this point to Quesnel, with Vancouver
as their ultimate destination. This is in
keeping with the statement recently
made by President Hays that his company intended building from this point
to the coast. From Quesnel or vicinity
the line will without doubt traverse
the rich Chilcoten country.
Lots of Coal on Peace River
Mr. F. C. Campbell, who was sent out
by the Provincial Government to report upon the resources of British Columbia which lies along the Peace River,
reports that a large part of the country
is underlaid by a coalfield. He says:
Southward from the Peace and between
the 122nd and 123rd degree of longitude
it is to all appearances coal country
everywhere. The outcrop is bituminious
of the highest quality (for surface coal)
and of excellent coking qualities.
To  Have   Steamers  on  Fraser
The railway contracting firm of
Foley, Welch & Stewart will operate
steamers on the Fraser next spring, to
carry supplies to the construction camps
on the line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
east and west of Tete Jaune Cache. The
work of building the boats will be rushed
this winter to be ready for the spring
work.

SALVATION ARMY
WILL BUILD HERE
CONTRACT LET FOR THEIR NEW
CITADEL
To Occupy Site at Head of Sixth
Street.���Officers Here Arranging
For Opening Campaign.
The Salvation Army will establish
a new citadel in Prince Rupert as announced in the Optimist some weeks
ago. The contract for the new building was let yesterday afternoon to E. H.
Morrison, and work on the new building will commence right away. The
army intends to lose no time at the outset
of their campaign, and on Sunday afternoon and evening Major and Mrs.
Morris will hold their opening meetings
in this city in the Empress theatre at
3 and 8p.m.
The new citadel in which the army
meetings will soon be held will occupy
a central site on Grandview Court at
the head of Sixth street near the Baptis t
church. It is estimated to cost from
$10,000 to $13,000 and will be a structure
in every way suited to and worthy of
the Salvation Army's work. An officer's
residence will be included in the plans.
G.  T.   P.   AND   CITY   GARBAGE.
Health     Committee's     Suggestions
As to Mehan's Complaint
The health committee reported at
last night's council regarding the matter
of the complaint by Gen. Supt. Mehan
of the G. T. P. that the city's present
method of disposing of garbage etc., was
causing offence to passengers and others
on the wharf.
The committee after carefully going
into the question of garbage disposal
came to the conclusion that no other
method of getting rid of garbage than
the present one could be considered
practicable meantime. To instal a garbage reduction plant was at this stage
of the city's economy, impossible, and
the waterfront they were now using
was the only one available.
In view of the fact that the city was
now contemplating entering into negotiations with the G. T. P. on a matter
of mutual advantage, and that the question of a waterfront for the city would
probably enter into these negotiations,
the health committee could only suggest
that Gen. Supt. Mehan be requested to
tolerate the nuisance until such time as
the forthcoming negotiations might result in the city's obtaining a waterfront
of its own.
The report was adopted without discussion
