is giving the work his personal supervision. The Optimist had a look round
the new building during one of the
architect's visits of inspection, and
everything looks well advancd and
going ahead fast. The roof is now on,

Olaf Will Work For Hia Frilled Five
Spot
Olaf Nyhagen attended too assiduously
at ene kind of bar last night, and appeared at another bar this morning
charged with having been drunk. He
pleaded guilty. "Five dollars and costs���
that's seven dollars," said Magistrate
Carss. Olaf looked downcast. He had
but a dollar in small change to his name.
There was a suggestion of mercy in the
Magistrate's eye, and Olaf said that if
flven a chance he would earn the amount
of the five and pay it in a week. "All

took his hat and hastened forth to hte

BOMB IS EXPLODED IN COUNCIL
Bank of Montreal Necessarily Requires Collateral For Loan In
Face of Difference With Grand Trunk Pacific.���Mayor
Declares There Is No Difference and Council Concludes It Is Only Necessary to Write
Letter to Bank to This Effect.
The Mayor arrived at the City Hall
last night a little late, and looking a
little preoccupied. The reading of the
minutes of the previous City Council
meeting was dispensed with, and the
council got to work at once upon a
report by the Lighting Committee regarding the B. C. boilers, the city plant
site, and the pole tenders. This matter
was not long under discussion, the
report being approved.
The Mayor ran rapidly down the
order of business, and it seemed for a
moment as if the Council's twenty-
minute record sitting were to be broken.
But at the words, "New Business," the
Mayor paused and turning to the City
Clerk requested him to read a letter
which the Mayor had received that
afternoon.
When the City Clerk had read the
letter it seemed as if a bomb-ehell had
suddenly dropped into the Council
chamber.   This is the letter:
The Bomb-ehell Letter
Bank of Montreal
Prince Rupert, B.C., Sept. 29��� '10
Fred Stork, Esq.
Prince Rupert, B. C.
"Dear Sir,���I regret to say that in
consequence of reported differences be
tween the city and the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Co. that might result
in serious impairment of the city's
assessment, and a consequent great
reduction in its revenue, the General
Manager has instructed me to advise
you that the bank cannot undertake to
make advances to the city till the differences between the city and the Railway
Co. are adjusted.
"I am advised that any issue of bonds
over in the London market would be
prejudicially affected by the existence of
such differences and the bank would not
agree to have any such come out under
its auspices.
"With a view to placing the situation
before the General Manager, and doing
anything I can to overcome the present
difficulties I would be glad if you would
give me a statement of the works you
have now in contemplation, and a
memo of the city's available resources
out of which their cost can be met.
"The Bank desires to further the
interests of the city in all ways in its
power.
Yours faithfully
J. CLANCY
Assistant Manager."

on the part of the aldermen, Aid. Barrow
stepped boldly up to the bomb-shell in
a heroic effort to drop it into the handiest
water bucket. In other words, he
moved that it be referred to the Finance
Committee. "It is distinctly financial,"
he remarked.
"It te indeed only too distinctly
financial," repeated the Mayor gloomily.
Up leaped Aid. Hilditch: "On the
face of it, Mr. Mayor," he cried, "are
there any difficulties between the city
and the Grand Trunk Pacific, or is it
all newspaper stuff."
"You have put the whole matter in a
nut shell, Aid. Hilditch," said the Mayor,
"There are no differences between the
city and the Grand Trunk Pacific.
They are on the best of terms with one
another."
"Then," said Aid. Hilditch, "it will
be sufficient if the Finance Committee
deals with the matter, letting the bank
understand that there is no difference

TELKWA   PASSENGERS   MAKE   A
RECORD JOURNEY
Made Close Connections at Hazelton
and Intercepted Big Steamer at
Mouth of Skeena on Her Way to
Vancouver.
F. L. Charlton, the leading merchant
and real estate agent of Telkwa, who is
staying at the Premier, tells of a record
trip from that active little town to the
mouth of the Skeena and the holding up
of the Prince Rupert in mid channel and
in the darkness of night to put on the
passengers who had made this record
trip from the interior town.   He says:
"We left Telkwa on the stage at ten
o'clock on Tuesday morning and landed
at Hazelton, after a drive of over sixty
miles, at noon the next day. The
steamer fiazelton started at two o'clock
Wednesday, or aa soon as she could
get these Telkwa passengers aboard, and
she came likety-eplit down the river
with the anjbition of catching the Prince
Rupert before she left her dock.
"It might possibly be done, perhaps,
but it wasn't. The captain did his
best, of course, but when we were off
Port Essington we saw the light of the
Prince Rupert going at full steam out
of the harbor. We made the most
frantic signals .possible and the Prince
Rupert hove to. We never expected
they would, as the telegraph wire was
down and we had not been able to
advise them of the number of passengers
for the outside we carried.
"It was a black, black night but we
?
succeeded in putting twenty-four passengers safely on board. This will
make a record trip for the Telkwa
people, as they will be in Vancouver
by two o'clock Saturday, and just
think of the hotel expenses they save."
CITY   HALL   PUBLIC   HOURS
Now Fixed From 10 a.m.. to 4: 30 p.m.
Will Help City Clerk
City Clerk Woods has been manfully
supporting the white man's burden of
work lately, and in order to give him a
chance to cope with it uninterruptedly
for some hours in the day, the City
Council have* authorized the fixing of
the public office hours at the City Hall
to be from 10 a.m., to 4:30 p.m. Thia
doesn't mean that City Clerk Woods
and his staff can saunter into the office
at 10 a.m., and quit at 4:30 p.m. Quite
the reverse: it means that they will be
probably tied closer down to their desks
before 10 a.m., and after 4:30 p.m.
since the idea is to give them freedom
from the comtinual little interruptions
that occur during public hours at the
City Hall.
The city's purchasing agent (also the
energetic Mr. Woods, by the way,) has
been authorized to secure a notice board
setting forth clearly the hours of public
business at the City Hall and this will
shortly be in position.
RIVER FREIGHT
IS CONGESTED
MAY BE BIG SHORTAGE OF WINTER SUPPLIES
Seven Hundred Tons Already Awaiting Shipment to River Points���
Orders for Large Consignments
Have Had to Be Countermanded.
Camosun   Likely   to   Be   Late
Steamer Camosun will probably not
arrive tonight, owing to the breakage of
her mahcinery on her trip down from
Stewart. It is estimated that she is
likely to be twenty-four hours late, which
would bring her here sometime tomorrow
evening.
From all accounts there promises to
be a dearth of supplies in all the Skeena
river points this winter. J. C. Boyd,
Hudson Bay factor at Hazelton, F. S.
Charlton, the leading merchant of
Telkwa, and a number of other merchants
are now in town, not to buy goods but
to see if they cannot manage to expidite
the transportation of merchandize already purchased. There was a similar
cry last winter, but the demands for
winter supplies then was a mere bagatelle
compared with those which the rapid
development of the past season has
created.
It is stated that there are over seven
hundred tons of freight in the warehouses here consigned to points on the
Skeena, and but a small portion of this
can be sent in before the river closes.
Also there are several large orders in
addition to this, but as soon as the
wire is working these will be countermanded. Already several orders have
been countermanded because of the
doubt prevailing as to the possibility of
their delivery during the season of
navigation.
The railway might help some, of
course, and in all probability will be
called upon to do so. But the trouble
in navigation is in the. Upper Skeena,
and all that the railway can at present
do is to shorten the haul for the steamers.
Aid. Mobley stated that the B. C.
Co.'s boilers had been tested that morning. There was a little excavation to
do on the site, but he believed that by
hurrying on the work they,might be
ready by the time the machinery arrived from the South. The reason for
hurrying up the matter now was in
order that arrangements might ba
hastened on, and the City Engineer
authorized to make any further minor
purchases that might be necessary
without delay.
The Mayor supplemented the report
of Aid. Mobley stating that he had had
a talk with the City Engineer and that
the engineer had told him that the
boiler test had been highly satisfactory.
The Mayor was glad to be able to announce this as he did not want the city
to find that they had .purchased a lemon
in the boilers.
Arrangements are being made to
hurry on the matter of the poles required. It is understood that the
tender of F. Engler for these poles
though not the lowest will be accepted,
at, a misapprehension exists on the part
of the lowest tenderer regarding the
supply of poles.
The City Lighting Plant will be installed and got in order to supply light
with the minimum of delay. This is
the aim of the Council and .Lighting
Committee.
EDGAR RIDLICH GOES FREE
Habeas Corpus Proceedings Successful in His Favor Yesterday
Proceedings to obtain the freedom of
Edgar Ridhch, the young man who was
detained by the police here on information received from Stewart, were successful yesterday afternoon. Judge
Young considered the application by
Messrs. Williams & Manson for writ
under Habeas Corpus procedure, and
after hearing the arguments put forward
by Messrs. Williams & Manson that
there could really be no case against
Ridlieh according to the code, took the
matter to avizandum and decided that
Ridlieh should be set free.
The case against Ridlieh was that he
had run the business which failed,
illegally by not keeping books, but Mr.
Williams contended successfully that
this is only an offence under the code
when continued over a period of five
years and as Stewart has not been in
existence for that time, clearly there
could be no case against Ridlieh.
Ridlieh has proceeded on his way
south to join his wife. It is said that
he will make every effort to clear off the
claims of the creditors of the abandoned
business at Stewart.
Not So Bad As It Looked
Last night as E. L. Livingstone wai
passing along the plank walk opposite
the G. T. P. Inn he slipped and fell
heavily. As he seemed stunned and hurt
in some way he was taken to the hospital.
This morning, however, he walked in
to the city and reported himself in good
shape at the police station. THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST

Letters to the Editor
"Fair Play For Everybody'"
'Why  bark at the  Quakers?    What
does the editor of the Empire know of
them?
Philadelphia, U. S. A., was founded by
a Quaker in 1680. There was established the first paper mill, the first type
foundry, the first insurance company,
the first bank, and the first medical
school in the colonies though New York
and Jamestown had been settled more
than half a century earlier.
Quakers- both in England and on the
Continent have an enviable record
both in municipal administration and
in commercial activities.
It would be no detriment to the city
aldermen were they to carry on their
deliberations with foresight, method and
sound judgment "like a lot of Quakers."
Perhaps that Editor will someday visit
a Quaker's business meeting and judge
of their methods of procedure for himself���perhaps he might apologize for his
disparaging remark.
Because Quakers believe in the "Inner
Light" they do not therefore dispense
with adequate external lighting of their
own homes or of their own cities where
they have control of city affairs. Also
there is nothing antagonistic in the
tenets of the Quakers to those of the
Salvation Army���one may be demonstrative with "flute, harp, sackbutt,"
etc., and the other silent and retiring���
but extremes meet, and in the populous
districts of many cities the two are
found working hand in glove together.
the "blind pigs" left over from the
regime which our so-called temperance
friends are so anxious to bring back.
(In which endeavor they are enthusiastic-
ly endorsed by the keepers of these
"blind pigs.") I know of one instance
in which a man got tanked up at one of
these resorts and then went in to a
licensed bar. Here he was refused a
drink and staggered out and the passers-
by of course jumped to the conclusion
that he got hia load in the hotel.
Let us use a little common sense. We
have a lot of working men in the city
who would be rather out of place at a
meeting of the W. C. T. U. and who are
accustomed to spend their money as
they see fit. If they sometimes get
drunk in Prince Rupert it is only what
they have done a score of times in
Vancouver and Victoria without causing
either of those cities to be visited with
the doom of Sodom and Gomorrah.
You can't make a man moral by building
a fence around him and as long as these
men have money in their pockets they
are going to drink what they feel like
drinking even if they have to go some
where else to get it. Of course it might
not be quite so offensive to our friend
with the Latin signature if these men
took the money they had earned in
Prince Rupert and got drunk in Vancouver but I submit that they buy
other things than booze in the town
and the town needs their patronage.

More About Licenses
To the Editor of the Optimist:
Sir,���I notice in last night's edition of
your paper a wail from a gentleman who
uses a siganture which the majority of
us must take on trust, as he has not been
kind enough to furnish us with a translation.    Stripped of rhetoric his claim
seems to be that there is more drunkenness in Prince Rupert at the present
time than there was before the granting
of licenses.   Whether or not this is the
case I am not prepared to say.   It is
quite possible that a good many of those
who now get drunk openly used to get
drunk secretly in their shacks and that
the difference is more apparent than real.
But if the charge is true is it not a little
early to decry the license system and the
Provincial Liquor Law?  Everyone knows
that repressive measures always lead to
a period of excess when the lid is taken
off but things very soon get to a normal
level, and this is happening in Prince
Rupert at the present time.
It is quite true that the new act
prohibits the sale of liquor to an intoxicated man in a licensed bar but
there are, unfortunately, still some of
A recommendation from Fire Chief
Mclnnes that the side walks on parts
of Second avenue and elsewhere where
necessary throughout the city, be widened sufficiently to let the hose reels and
wagons pass along them in case of a
fire, was discussed and approved. Aid.
Hilditch wanted to know if the cost of
this would be borne by the Local Improvement or General Fund. Aid.
Mobley explained that the whole cost
of widening these walks where necessary
would be very trifling. The Mayor
drew attention to the present condition
of Second avenue under grading operations, and said it would be rather difficult
to get the fire appliances to a fire in that
neighborhood that way. Arrangements
will be made to meet the difficulty.
In this connection the matter of
owners moving their buildings along
the streets was suggested as a source of
difficulty for the Fire Chief. Aid.
Barrow thought that it should be compulsory on owners in such cases to keep
their houses on the move till past the
intersections of streets and not to leave
them stationary at such points.    Aid.

"Then," said Aid. Hilditch, "it will
be sufficient if the Finance Committee
deals with the matter, letting the bank
understand that there is no difference
of opinion or friction at all."
That Momentous Interview
"May I say a word?" put in Aid.
Pattullo. "There certainly is no friction.

RACE FOR THE
PRINCE RUPERT
TELKWA   PASSENGERS   MAKE   A
RECORD JOURNEY
Made Close Connections at Hazelton
and Intercepted Big Steamer at
Mouth of Skeena on Her Way to
Vancouver.
F. L. Charlton, the leading merchant
and real estate agent of Telkwa, who is
staying at the Premier, tells of a record
trip from that active little town to the
mouth of the Skeena and the holding up
of the Prince Rupert in mid channel and
in the darkness of night to put on the
passengers who had made this record
trip from the interior town.   He says:
"We left Telkwa on the Btage at ten
o'clock on Tuesday morning and landed
at Hazelton, after a drive of over sixty
miles, at noon the next day. The
steamer fiazelton started at two o'clock
Wednesday, or as soon as she could
get these Telkwa passengers aboard, and
she came likety-split down the river
with the ambition of catching the Prince
Rupert before she left her dock.
"It might possibly be done, perhaps,
but it wasn't. The captain did his
best, of course, but when we were off
Port Essington we saw the light of the
Prince Rupert going at full steam out
of the harbor, We made the most
frantic signals .possible and the Prince
Rupert hove to. We never expected
they would, as the telegraph wire was
down and we had not been able to
advise them of the number of passengers
for the outside we carried.
"It was a black, black night but we
succeeded in putting twenty-four passengers safely on board. This will
make a record trip for the Telkwa
people, as they will be in Vancouver
by two o'clock Saturday, and just
think of the hotel expenses they save."
CITY   HALL   PUBLIC   HOURS
Now Fixed From 10 a.m.. to 4:30 p.m.
Will Help City Clerk
City Clerk Woods has been manfully
supporting the white man's burden of
work lately, and in order to give him a
chance to cope with it uninterruptedly
for some hours in the day, the City
Council have* authorised the fixing of
the public office hours at the City Hall
to be from 10 a.m., to 4:80 p.m. This
doesn't mean that City Clerk Woods
and his staff can saunter into the offir-e
at 10 a.m., and quit at 4:30 p.m. Quite
the reverse: it means that they will be
probably tied closer down to their desks
before 10 a.m., and after 4:30 p.m.
since the idea is to give them freedom
from the comtinual little interruptions
that occur during public hours at the
City Hall.
The city's purchasing agent (also the
energetic Mr. Woods, by the way,) has
been authorized to secure a notice board
setting forth clearly the hours of pUDlic
business at the City Hall and this will
shortly be in position.
RIVER FREIGHT
IS CONGESTED
Aid. Mobley stated that the B. C.
Co.'s boilers had been tested that morning. There was a little excavation to
do on the site, but he believed that by
hurrying on the work they,might be
ready by the time the machinery arrived from the South. The reason for
hurrying up the matter now was in
order that arrangements might be
hastened on, and the City Engineer
authorized to make any further minor
purchases that might be necessary
without delay.
The Mayor supplemented the report
of Aid. Mobley stating that he had had
a talk with the City Engineer and that
the engineer had told him that the
boiler test hod been highly satisfactory.
The Mayor was glad to be able to announce this as he did not want the city
to find that they had .purchased a lemon
in the boilers.
Arrangements are being made to
hurry on the matter of the poles required. It is understood that the
tender of F. Engler for these poles
though not the lowest will be accepted,
at, a misapprehension exists on the part
of the lowest tenderer regarding the
supply of poles.
The City Lighting Plant will be installed and got in order to supply light
with the minimum of delay. This is
the aim of the Council and Lighting
Committee.
MAY BE BIG SHORTAGE OF WINTER SUPPLIES
Seven Hundred Tons Already Awaiting Shipment to River Point*���
Orders for Large Consignments
Have Had to Be Countermanded.
Camosun   Likely   to   Be   Late
Steamer Camosun will probably not
arrive tonight, owing to the breakage of
her mahciuery on her trip down from
Stewart. It is estimated that she is
likely to be twenty-four hours late, which
would bring her here sometime tomorrow
evening.
From all accounts there promises to
be a dearth of supplies in all the Skeena
river points this winter. J. C. Boyd,
Hudson Bay factor at Hazelton, F. S.
Charlton, the leading merchant of
Telkwa, and a number of other merchants
are now in town, not to buy goods but
to see if they cannot manage to expidite
the transportation of merchandize already purchased. There was a similar
cry last winter, but the demands for
winter supplies then was a mere bagatelle
compared with those which the rapid
development of the past season has
created.
It is stated that there are over seven
hundred tons of freight in the warehouses here consigned to points on the
Skeena, and but a small portion of this
can be sent in before the river closes.
Also there are several large orders in
addition to this, but as soon as the
wire is working these will be countermanded. Already several orders have
been countermanded because of the
doubt prevailing as to the possibility of
their delivery during the season of
navigation.
The railway might help some, of
course, and in all probability will be
called upon to do so. But the trouble
in navigation is in the. Upper Skeena,
and all that the railway can at present
do is to shorten the haul for the steamers.
EDGAR RIDLICH GOES FREE
Habeas Corpus Proceedings  Successful in His Favor Yesterday
Proceedings to obtain the freedom of
Edgar Ridlieh, the young man who was
detained by the police here on information received from Stewart, were successful yesterday afternoon. Judge
Young considered the application by
Messrs. Williams & Manson for writ
under Habeas Corpus procedure, and
after hearing the arguments put forward
by Messrs. Williams & Manson that
there could really be no case against
Ridlieh according to the code, took the
matter to avizandum and decided that
Ridlieh should be set free.
The case against Ridlieh was that he
had run the business which failed,
illegally by not keeping books, but Mr.
Williams contended successfully that
this is only an offence under the code
when continued over a period of five
years and as Stewart has not been in
existence for that time, clearly there
could be no case against Ridlieh.
Ridlieh has proceeded on his way
south to join his wife. It is said that
he will make every effort to clear off the
claims of the creditors of the abandoned
business at Stewart.
Not So Bad As It Looked
Last night as E. L. Livingstone wai
passing along the plank walk oppoeite
the G. T. P. Inn he slipped and fell
heavily. As he seemed stunned and hurt
in some way he was taken to the hospital.
This morning, however, he walked in
to the city and reported himself in good
shape at the police station. THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

KOOTENAY'S RESOURCES
Splendidly-   Illustrated    Edition    of
Nelson  Daily News
Following the example of the Optimist
the Nelson Daily News has produced a
twenty page edition showing the resources of the Kootenays and the prosperity of Nelson as its capital. It is
profusely illustrated and the reading
matter is a mass of facts told in an unusually interesting way. In an editorial regarding this special industrial
edition it is stated that the Kootenay is
not only a land of wonderful natural
wealth, it is also a land so situated as
to add immensely to the value of that
wealth.
"It contains great areas of timber and
vast coal measures. Where could these
things be situated so as to give them
greater value than on the border of
hundreds of miles of treeless prairie?
It contains hundreds of thousands of
fruit lands. Where could these be
placed to greater advantage than in
the vicinity of the great plains where our
fruits can not be grown and where
within a comparatively few years a
population of five ot ten millions will
become purchasers of these products?
"The Kootenay is one of the greatest
mineral regions in the world. A territory two hundred miles from north
to south and from east to west is strewn
with gold and silver, copper and lead,
iron and zinc. These are not in the
remote north. Those who work our
mines live not in an Arctic climate, or
under the desert sun, or visited by excessive rains, but in one of the finest
climates in the world���not far distant
from civilization but with all the advantages and facilities of civilization at
hand."

MINING MEN
FOR HAZELTON
TO   WORK   NINE   MILE   MINES
DURING WINTER
Many Inquiries Regarding This Promising District and Big Rush
pected There in Spring. Assays of
the Lead King Mine.
Among the passengers on the Inlander
for Hazelton yesterday was "Bob"
Schaffnit /formerly superintendent of
the Lucky Boy, a large silver lead producer in the neighborhood of Hawthorne,
Nevada.
��� Mr. Schaffnit is to take charge of part
of the work on the Hazelton Nine Mile
Co.'s property under Frank A. Brown
who accompanied him on the boat. It
is intended to keep up active work
during the whole winter.
The latest assay runs on the Lead
King and Lead Queen claims continue
to show the same high grade ore in the
cuts and tunnel.
The following are the reports of
them by J. W. Austin:
Lead King.���Silver per ton, 145.0 oz.
Value per ton, $76.85. Lead per cent.,
44.0. Value per ton, $35.20. Gross
value per ton, $112.05.
Lead Queen.���Silver per ton, 83.5.
Value per ton, $44.25. Lead per cent.,
50.6. Value per ton, $40.48. Gross
value per ton, $84.73.
Every indication is in favor of a big
rush into Hazelton Nine Mile District
in the early spring. Inquiries are pouring
in daily regarding the transportation
facilities, supply centers, etc., and this
great mineralized region so long passed
over by those who prospected for placer
gold above seems now about to come
into its own through its great veins of
high grade silver lead ores.
It is rather significant that most of
the old Nevada mining crowd, who
only operate in the "lively" rock regions
are now turning their eyes toward
Hazelton where the high-grade ore
promises to make a bonanza camp.
According to recent information Hazelton
will accommodate a large number of
prospectors this winter who wish to be
on the ground early in the spring.

RAISING HOSPITAL FUND
Fort George People to Ask Government For Site Only
Citizens of Fort George have recently concluded that the proposed cottage hospital at that point would soon
prove inadequate to the needs and' demands of the rapidly growing district,
and a movement has taken form looking to the establishment of a modern
general public hospital that will, for
years to come, be sufficient for the
needs of the vast territory of which
Fort George is the hub. A subscription list towards the establishment of
such a hospital has been opened, headed with a donation of $5,000 by Mr.
and Mrs. G. J. Hammond. To this the
Fort George Tribune has added $100
and sundry small subscriptions of $12.26
have already been handed in.
The only assistance to be asked of the
Provincial Government will be in the
matter of a site. It is the pride of
the Fort George people that they will
be able to carry their establishment
plans through to completion without
asking for government aid. The preliminary board entrusted with the arrangements is composed of Messrs.
J. A. Shearer, Edward Roberts, J. G.
Hallaran, John T. Carter and J. G.
Quinn.

THE COUNCIL UP AGAINST IT
The withdrawal of the city's credit for further grading contracts by the Bank
of Montreal until such time as the G. T. P. assessment is settled is the severest
condemnation and the most practical criticism the City Council have had. The
Council admit they are up against a proposition that is too much for them. The
public have realized it for a long time. ���
Naturally the aldermen would look to throw the blame of their incompetency
on some one else and they endeavor to make the press the scapegoat. The press
are to be made guilty of the sin of honesty in giving publicity to the secret negotiations of the Council and exposing their inexperience and incompetency. It is
the wail of the beaten.for by no stretch of imagination can anyone argue that deceit
and secrecy in public affairs.are virtues, and in refusing to take the blame of their
own misjudgment the City Council only add to the weakness of their positions.
Had publicity been given the negotiations with the G. T. P. at the beginning
the differences with the Company would have been amicably settled before this,
but the public were kept in the dark until the opportunity of amicable negotiations
had passed. The fault was not in the publicity of the press but in the secrecy of
the Council.   No honest proposition loses anything by being exposed to the light.
Last May the Optimist pointed out to the electors the danger of placing in
positions of power and trust men who did not have the confidence of the financial
institutions.   Let us quote from the editorial column of the Optimist of May 5:
"That the credit of.Prince Rupert in the money market would be
very largely influenced by the personnel, policy, character and conduct of the mayor and aldermen. Men with good judgment, ability
and honor can borrow a large sum on the city's credit; but unless
such men are elected, the bonowing powers will be very meagre.
This may not seem important to the man in the heat of a contest,
but it is of vital interest to every business man and every laborer
in the city. A credit of a million dollars or more means the construction of great civic works at good wages and money circulating
in the city. A poor credit means little municipal work. Which do
you want? This is something to think over when you support
a candidate."
The above paragraph is not quoted with the spirit of "I told you so," but
rather to point out that the present difficulty was one which could have been foreseen and avoided. It is only another unmistakable and unfortunate proof that
the City Council uses bad judgment. The Council has frequently shown lack of
understanding, tact and experience and because the Optimist criticized them this
paper has had the animosity of the Mayor and Council ever since. Results are
beginning to indicate that the criticism was not severe enough.
The outcome of the withdrawal of the city's bond credit will cause a temporary
delay of further grading contracts but it is not going to have the direful effect some
of the faded aldermen predict. The citizens of Prince Rupert can take a hand
in adjusting the present trouble and restore the confidence of those who lend money.
The citizens will have to repair the break.

Mining Profits
Big profits in the mining business come from the development
of a proven property backed and
managed by men of experience
and sound judgment. Investment in Silver Cup shares is a
conservative investment and has
freat speculative possibilities,
he aggressive development of
the immense ore bodies disclosed
should make the investment, at
the present price of 12 1-2 cents
per share, one of the greatest in
the mining history of British
Columbia. The special treasury
issue of one hundred thousand
shares at 12 1-2* cents per share
will soon be exhausted. If you
have been considering our offer
during the past few days put
your judgment into action and
secure for future profits a block
of this issue before it advances.

lOMB EXPLODED
IN CITY COUNCIL
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
t?of us who were present at a certain
view know this perfectly well.    I
6 not, however, surprised at this letter.
j is the direct outcome of the  dis-
lieting report   regarding   the   city's
jotiations  with   the   Grand   Trunk
kific.   Capital  is  the   most   timid
I in the world���more than even the
i, but when the bank is informed
e real situation the matter will be
rialy righted."
. Hilditch:  "This Council knows
i state of  affairs   quite   well���far
ter than the general public do   and
e is no friction."
Blames The  Newspapers    -
I Here the Mayor informed the Council
i he had seen the City Solicitor im-
idiately on receipt of the letter from
|a Clancy, and had instructed him to
steps to  have   the   information
furnished as soon as possible
| the bank.   "They are our bankers,"
"and entitled  to  have  this.
e in regard to the letter I am
(pared to take whatever steps  the
Mil may agree upon.    I am sorry
��� thing has occurred," continued the
Ivor. "The bank has been influenced
Tthe newspaper reports which have
T published here and copied all over
��country."  The Mayor went on to
��the case o the Bitter Creek Strike
m which he said had been fostered
1 rendered acute by newspaper re-
la "There is no friction at all," he
rated. "The Grand Trunk Pacific
7>tand the Council and the Council
���and t^ Grand Trunk  Pacific;
these newspaper reporU have made

* "undl that d
����� do Tu T* publi8h everything
"'   ll�� O. T. P. don.t dj^gg
their affairs in public, and as a matter
of fact, the principal reason why this
matt:r was at first discussed privately
was becauae it was Mr. Hays' express
wish that Aid. Barrow and myself
should return and consult in private
with the other members of the Council
regarding this."
Aid. Mobley agreed very emphatically
with the Mayor in this feeling. He said
that it was not only impossible but
most unadvisable to publish everything
any council might do. The discussion
with Mr. Hays had been most friendly
and yet the reports regarding it when
spread around the country had been
grossly exaggerated and were even now
doing incalculable harm. He gave
instances of how these exaggerated
newspaper reports were being construed
by outsiders to mean that the G. T. P.
were really abandoning the idea of
making Prince Rupert their terminus.
Board of Trade Blamed
Aid. Hilditch again arose: "I don't
like to sit in judgment on anybody," he
said, "but I do believe that if anybody
in this city needs criticism it is the
Board of Trade. . They need severe
criticism for trying to stampede this
thing through the Council regardless of
other citizen's wishes in the matter.
The Press deserves censure also for the
part it has played in this matter but I
believe in putting the blame where it
belongs and that is on the Board of
Trade. The Press has got to have big
headlines and exists to make money out
of important news, but still the Press
ought to show more judgment, especially
in cases like this. I look on the local
Press and the Board of Trade as entirely
responsible for thia letter we have
received tonight."
Aid. Mclntyre assented to the general trend of the opinions expressed,
"But," he said, "there is nothing for
us to worry about. We can find financial
institutions to back us up if we require
them. Let this report go broadcast
too, if it likes, it can do no harm. This
difficulty may give us a temporary set
back, but it cannot hinder us for long.
We shall survive it and propser."
Applauds Council's Sp rit
The Bpirit evinced in Aid. Mclntyra-'s
remarks greatly pleased Aid. Patullo
who expressed the approbation of the
Council for taking the matter so optimistically. He was glad to ee the
Mayor and Alderman standing shoulder
to shoulder at this time for the welfare
of the city. The ncident of this letter
was a regrettable one since it had occurred   when   the   Council   had   been
hoping to_��� have . large   improvement
works and many men employed in the
city shortly. Now there was a prospect
of these improvements being delayed.
"If it had been possible," he said.   "I
should have liked to have kept this back
information, but as it is, it can't be helped
and in any case it will be only a tem-
p rary set back for us."
The Mayor reiterated his pinion
that tha manner rn which the Council
had been criticized and maligned was
most unfair after the amount of work
it had endeavored to do thoroughly for
the city's good. "But," he went on,
"those who have criticized us have not
lost sight of the fact that they have
really hurt not the Council but their
own city and themselves. And," the
Mayor added, "I believe the Grand
Trunk Pacific will be the most regretful
of any that these reports have been
published."
Pattullo's  Million Dollar Loan
Aid. Mobley sadi thzt while he didn't
think that the Bank of Montreal was
the only financial institution on the
American continent, he believed it was
the strongest. "Still if the Bank of
Montreal persists in turning us down,"
he said. "We can get financial support
elsewhere. He understood that Aid.
Pattullo had been able on one memorable
occasion to walk into the Bank of
Montreal and borrow a million dollars
right off. If he could do that with one
bank he could do it with another.
Here Ald.Pattullo hurriedly interposed
deprecatingly amid the smiles of the
Council. "But," added Aid. Mobley
seriously, "this affair may keep us back
and entail a long delay."
"Not a long delay," interposed Aid.
Hilditch, "for as soon as the Bank of
Montreal appreciates the situation it
will be settled."
"Any delay at all at present," said
Aid. Mobley, "is a long delay at our
present stage. We cannot afford to
be kept back a week. We want to get
ahead."
Is   Council   "A   Safe   Bunch I"
Aid. Lynch now arose to advocate the
advisability of the Council's reconsidering their action in authorizing the
City Clerk to advertise for tenders for
.Section One grading, etc., "The Bank
of Montreal," he said, "may have come
to the conclusion that this City Council
of Prince Rupert is not a safe bunch to
lend money to." However, he had not
thought the matter over yet, and did not
know how far the bank might have
suggested the promises of a settlement.
He glanced at the Mayor as he spoke,
but Mayor Stork shook his head. "No,
that was all," he said, "and I do not
think these tenders should be called
for."
"Certainly we cannot go ahead until
we Tchow how" we Stand financially. If
the bonds are not marketable it would
be a serious thing for the bank and city
supposing the money market were tight."
Aid. Barrow suggested that preparation might be made to go on with the
tenders as soon zs the difficulty were
over. All necessary clerical work would
be done meantime.
Wants    It    Kept   Dark
"I wish this could not be made public,"
said Aid. Hilditch, "Even if the Press
would refrain from publishing tonight's
proceedings it would be a help."
Aid. Pattullo then proposed a motion
that no more tenders for city work be
called for till this matter of the money
were settled.
Aid. Mobley wanted to refer the
matter to the Finance Committee, and
a motion was framed embracing this and
Aid. Pattullo's motion.
"Before putting the motion," said
tke Mayor, "I want to emphasize again
the fact that Mr. Hays himself was the
man who suggested that this be treated
privately, and yet he himself was the
first man to give it publicity. I agree
with Aid. Hilditch, "he continued,
"that it will not be a good thing for the
city when this gets published. We as
a council have the least to lose in the
matter. It just shows that a com-
! munity which has to discuss its affairs in
public has the least chance aganist a
corporation which keeps its business
private."
Aid.   Hilditch   Ssys,    "No"
The motion was then put and carried,
Aid. Hilditch dissenting.
In explanation of his being on the
"No" side, Aid. Hilditch said that he
was sure that the matter would be
settled soon, within the twenty-one days
they allowed for the tenders to come in
"If we call for those tenders," he said
"and in twenty-one days find that we
won't be hung up for the money after
all where shall we be? It shows some
weakness to call off the tenders. This
is the only reason why I voted against
the motion. - And even if the Bank
of Montreal remains unconvinced may
we not obtain the cash from other
sources within, say sixty days?"
Aid. Lynch said it would be a difficult
matter to call for tenders when they were
not sure about the money. The contractors would tender immediately. The
G. T. P. had chosen a time for their
action when they thought the city was
tightly placed. Still he believed the
G. T. P. would lose more than the city
would eventually. There was their
labor problem which the carrying on
of the city's works would help by
attracting men to the neighborhood.
The G. T. P. wanted people to come here
and the best, indeed, the only way to
attract people was to provide work for
them.
Aid. Lynch's remarks died away in a
hush that fell over the Council.    Aid.
Pattullo was busily whispering with
Aid. Hilditch. Significant glances passed
between the Mayor and Aid. Lynch.
Then breaking in on the strained silence
the voice of City Clerk Woods fell on
the ears of the Council asking something
abeut the city dog licenses.
That relieved the situation, and the
Mayor suggested a period of recess while
the Streets Committee attended to a
pressing matter. This was sgreed to
and the Committee retired to the
Mayoral sanctum. They�� returned to
the Council chambers but there was no
more about the moneys
THAT   STRIKE   ON   NAAS
Prospector Bennett Says Colors Are
Found On Many Bars
That the first reports of mineral in
Naas river country were true in a
measure is the statement of H. C. Bennett who has returned, says the Portland
Canal Miner. The lodes are apparently
of a high grade character of gold quartz,
but the placer diggings prospected appear
to be doubtful. Reports from the south
are to the effect that already the stories
of gold have grown in volume until they
threaten to reach the proportions of the
Iditarod stories. These, however, will be
refuted as the placer strike is not a
panning proposition in the opinion of
those who have staked claims. The
ledges are the most attractive, it is
stated, and mining men claim that the
quartz brought in is among the finest in
this northern country. Mr. Bennett is an
experienced placer miner having spent
ten years in the Yukon and Atlin districts. He went into the Naas river
country to investigate the reported
strikes on behalf of parties interested
here.
"It is too soon yet to say," said Mr.
Bennett, "anything in regard to the
discoveries other than they are not paying propositions from surface indications. Colors may be found on many
of the bars, but this may be said of almost any creek in the north. Personally I liked the look of the country. It
is of vast extent and there is lots of
room for prospecting, and possibly
strikes may be made in the future when
prospecting has been carried further
afield. I did not visit any of the quartz
propositions located, but from what I
could learn they are undoubtedly of
value, the ore and country rock being
simliar to that on Bitter and Glacier
creeks.

Toronto, .Sept. 27.���At a meeting
of the moral and social reform council of Canada, held in this city today,
the foUowing resolution was adopted:
"In view of the national importance
of securing full justice for the native
race in all parts of Canada, this council, while not expressing an opinion
upon the merits of the claims now being made by the Indian tribes of British Columbia, expresses its sympathy
with the aims of the conference of
friends of the Indians of British Columbia in seeking to bring about as
rapidly as possible a just and advantageous solution of the problem presented by existing conditions in that
province and its sense of the great importance of accomplishing that object.
This council expresses the hope that
the government concerned will facilitate a prompt and final settlement of
the whole question of Indian title.
"It iB further resolved that members
of the delegation already appointed
be authorized to present this resolution
to the prime minister of Canada and
the superintendent general of Indian
affairs."

The way some people have of hauling

plankways by team has attracted the
attention of the city councillors. A
resolution was passed the other night
that the Building Inspector and city
police should be empowered to take
steps to prevent this haulage of logs

CONSERVATIVES
GETTING BUSY
UP   AT   STEWART   BUT   NOT   IN
PRINCE RUPERT
Increase the Ante From Two Bit* to
Two Dollars���Harry Smith Elected
President���Pays a High Tribute to
Premier McBride.
The Empress theatre on Wendesday
night was the scene of a rousing meeting of Conservatives who held the first
annual meeting of the Bear River Conservative assicoation, says the Portland
Canal Miner. The following officers
were elected: Harry Smith, president;
Thomas Hickey, vice-president; Matt J.
Knight, secretary-treasurer; executive
committee, A. R. Dalgesh, J. McMillan,
W. R. Smith, Joseph N. McPhee and M.
R. Jamieson. Representatives to the
hospital board were nominated as follows: A. R. Dalglesh, M. J. Knight, M.
R. Jamieson. On the suggestion of
Mr. Bell it was decided that the necessary papers for the voters list be secured and Mr. Manson, M. P. P., has
been communicated with for this purpose
so the list may be enrolled at the next
court of revision. Mr. Manson has also
been requested to make appointments
to take registrations here.
This gathering of Conservatives was
quite different from the gathering of
the faithful last fall. Last fall the
members were assessed 25 cents as a
fee and ths two-bit pieces looked as
big as houses then. But Wednesday
night the members dug up $2 apiece���
all of which demonstrates the growth
of the Conservatives in affluence. Harry
Smith was made president last fall
and this later gathering thrust the
honor upon him again. He made a
strong speech of acceptance, in part as
follows:
"Since British Columbia elected Hon.
Richard McBride as her Premier, she
has flourished as she never flourished
before. The facts will bear me out
when I say that when McBride took up
the reins things were in chaos. The
Province was in debt; the treasury was
depleted. But this New Westminster
boy drives the team in fine style and
today British Columbia is one of the
wealthiest provinces and the fairest of
all Britain's possessions. Nowhere in
the world are there such natural resources. It is up to us as citizens to
stand by such a man as Premier McBride and his progressive government.
If we do that we will do our duty. I
sincerely hope that the Bear River
Conservative association will be the
banner association of British Columbia."
The association intends to get busy
in the interests of Stewart right from
the start and passed a resolution to the
effect that an effort be made to secure
a school this winter.

Cor. Fulton St. and Third Ave
Winnipeg, Sept. 27.���The Telegram
publishes a special from Edmonton
regarding rumors persistent in the
Alberta capital for the past two years
to the effect that Hon. Frank Oliver
is non persona grata with Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and that there have been
several clashes between the Premier
and his lieutenant, two being specified.
The minister of the interior is said
to have strongly, but vainly, opposed
the appointment of the Premier's compatriot and former law partner, Mr.
Noel, to the District Court bench,
and also the appointment of Mr. Justice
Beck.
Hon. Mr. Oliver is said to have
stated to a friend in Edmonton recently, when questioned regarding the
rumor, that he would not accept an
appointment to the Railway Commission.
MAY   GET   ANOTHER   BANK
General Manager of Home Bank of
' Canada I* Coming
Vancouver, aSept. 27.���Branches of the
Home Bank of Canada with head oflice
in Toronto may be established in Vancouver and other British Columbia
cities. Lieut.-Col. James Mason, general manager of the bank, is infVancouver
looking over the field. He has already
inspected   the   bank's   half   score   of
branches in the prairie provinces as well
as the branch at Fernie in the Crow's
Nest Pass District. The colonel will
also visit Victoria and Prince Rupert.
"I am out here looking into conditions with a view to considering the
question of opening new branches.
The wonderful development of the
West, including British Columbia, has
naturally occupied the attention of
Eastern bankers. The whole trip thus
far has been nothing but a series of
revelations," said the colonel to The
Province at the Hotel Vancouver today.
The Home Bank of Canada has an
authorized capital of $2,000,000 and
last year had it paid up to the extent
of $902,000, earning a dividend of 6
per cent, and a reserve of $300,000.
GROWTH OF BANKING
Optimistic View of What Prince Rupert Will Shortly Experience
E. Stonham was saying good bye to
a large number of friends in the Inn
lobby last night, when one of them
observed that the manager of the Home
Bank of Canada was on his way here to
pick out a site for a branch of that
institution.
"But there are others," responded Mr.
Stonham. "I have no doubt I shall see
more banks here every time I come to
see you. There will probably be fifteen
or sixteen banka established here during
the next two or three years. Your
growth is certain to be rapid from now
on."

MENACE TO PUBLIC SAFETY
Dunedin Block Ordered To* Be Vacated and Pulled Down
During a short recess in the City
Council proceedings last night the
Streets, Works and Property Committee
retired to consider and report on a
matter of some urgency, viz.: the unfavorable report of the building inspector
regarding the safety of the Dunedin
Block on .Second avenue near Eighth
street.
The building was reported to be in
an unsafe condition and a danger to
the lives of the citizens and inmates.

that the building should be vacated and
pulled down immediately. The Streets
Committee expressing every confidence
in the building inspector, approved his
report and recommended that it be

being done.
