over the almost complete victory of

Yesterday, the passengers who were

The Alexandra was built some years
ago by a syndicate of Port Simpson
Indians. It was not a success and was
bought in on a mortgage by R. Kelly
and C. Marpole of Vancouver, who have
now sold it to the B. C. Packers Awsoeia-

was $15,000. It has a license to fish 30
boats. This cannery ts right alongside
the Balmoral and the new owners will
close it up, transferring the license to
the Standard cannery, near Claxton.
The Standard has been dismantled for
sometime and cannot get a license as
no more cannery licenses willbe issued.

SEVEN REASONS
WHY MANSON SHOULD
ELECTED.
BE
BECAUSE he has a better knowledge of
Prince Rupert's civic affairs
than anyone else.
BECAUSE his honesty and Integity ts"
above reproach.
BECAUSE he thoroughly understands
municipal law and systemitiz-
ing municipal work.
BECAUSE financiers to whom Prince Rupert must go for heavy loans
demand a big, clean man who
has had experience in handling public funds.
BECAUSE he knows where to start and
how to start organizing the
civic administration.
BECAUSE he has the confidence of the
Provincial Government, with
whom the city will have considerable important business
transactions within the present year.
BECAUSE his policy is straightforward,
good business and allows no
room for juggling.
Ottawa, May 13���Following the appalling loss of life in the Hull explosion
on Sunday the announcement has been
made by William Templeman, Minister
of Mines, that at the next session he will
introduce a measure providing for
the examination and testing of explosives
by the government, and for regulations
as to its manafacture. He recommends
that government inspectors be appointed with large powers to enforce the law.
Heavy penalties for breach of the law
The Metlakatla band and Kaufmann's
orchestra were present and at the opening of the meeting, and in between the
addresses rendered selections, which
were greatly appreciated by the audience
and kept them in very high spints,
although the music was hardly necessary
to create any enthusiasm among Mr.
Manson's   hundreds   of   supporters.
G. W. Arnott was the first speaker
of the evening, and he was given a
warm reception. He stated that he came
into the field without apology to. anyone.
He was out to run and he would never
be idle. He was proud to be supporting
the first mayor of Prince Rupert,
William Manson. As he went around and
sized up the situation he could see where
Mr. Manson was gaining ground. He
was a strong advocate of the single
tax, which was the best for Prince
Rupert, and everyone who had the
interest of the city at heart should gel
out and work for the single tax..
Everyone admits that Mr. Manson
is the strongest man in the city for the

die, W. Dennison, Summitville, Ohio,
���kull fractured, and may die. Several
other passengers and trainmen wer
badly hurt and many persons were
given  a severe shaking up,  when the
man and if he was otherwise in any
particular he would be satisfied to
retire. He was one of the pioneers of
Prince Rupert, having been here a
year before the sale of lots. He was
interested in the city and wanted to
see it grow into one ol the finest in the
Dominion.     Applause.
D. W. Morrisey was the second
speaker. He was sorry not to be present
on the previous evening, but he was not
feeling well. He was glad to report
that from what he had learned from the
multitude of the people who gather a-
round the wharf, that William Manson's

Newspaper Limitations.
The Rev. James McLeod, a Presbyterian minister, of Pasadena, Calif.,
undertook to edit, for one day, the
Pasadena Star. At the end of the day,
he said:
"My time is now almost up as I
pen this last line; my hand is almost
paralyzed; my brain is befuddled, and
I am free to confess that I am right glad
to vacate this holy spot. Such rush
and riot and disarray! Such a jumble and
potpourri! It strikes me as a daily effort
to bring order out of chaos, and to do
it lightening quick. lam reminded of the
memorable words:
" 'The earth was without form and
void, and darkness was on the face of
the deep. And the spirit moved upon
the face of the waters' "
"Never shall I criticise newspaper men
more. I shall pray for them. They shall
have my heart's forbearance, henceforth
and forever, the hardest worked, shortest lived, brainworkers on this watery
old world of ours."
While this confession is flattering
to the pride of journalists, it is quite
likely   that    the   reverend   gentleman
was carried to extremes by the novelty
of his experience. In a few days he would
have discovered that there is routine
and method in newspaper work, as in
all others, and that everything on a newspaper is not done in a headlong rush.
Nor is there any reason why he should
cease to criticise the papers; what he
ought to learn from practical experience
is to remember their limitations. The
book, the pamphlet, the Parliamentary
debate, the public meeting, can still
give us something that we cannot find
in the newspaper and unreasonable
criticism of the newspaper are equally to
be avoided.���Toronto Star.

Vancouver, May 13,���After being
out an hour and a half, the jury in the
case of Julia Lewis, coloured, accused
of murdering her paramour, Peter Scurry
also coloured, brought in a verdict of
not guilty. The accused fainted in the
box when the verdict was announced.
The judge sternly stopped the applause
in the court room. The woman's defence
was that she was trying to break the
revolver to take out the cartridges, when
it went off, killing Scurry.

SEVEN REASONS
WHY    MANSON    SHOULD
ELECTED.
BE
BECAUSE he has a better knowledge of
Prince Rupert's civic affairs
than anyone else.
BECAUSE his honesty and integity is
above reproach.
BECAUSE he thoroughly understands
municipal law and systemitiz-
ing municipal work.
BECAUSE financiers to whom Prince Rupert must go for heavy loans
demand a big, clean man who
has had experience in handling public funds.
BECAUSE he knows where to start and
how to start organizing the
civic administration.
BECAUSE he has the confidence of the
Provincial Government, with
whom the city will have considerable important business
transactions within the present year.
BECAUSE his policy is straightforward,
good business and allows no

Ottawa, May 13 -Following the appalling loss of life in the Hull explosion
on Sunday the announcement has been
made by William Templeman, Minister
of Mines, that at the next session he will
introduce a measure providing for
the examination and testing of explosives
by the government, and for regulations
as to its manafacture. He recommends
that government inspectors be appointed with large powers to enforce the law.
Heavy penalties for breach of the law
should be provided. An explosive
should be added to the mines branch ol
the government and a testing station
established. Ten thousand dollars is to
be voted by Parliament to enquire into
the question and it is proposed hirint;
a British government expert here,
to investigate the condition of the Canadian explosives.

other passengers and trainmen wer
badly hurt and many persons were
given a severe shaking up, when the
west bound local passenger train No.
307, on the Cleveland and Pittsburg
division of the Penn, lines, was derailed
and all but one of the cars were thrown
over a 14 foot embankment, eighteen
miles south of Alliance, Ohio, at Kensington station. Cause of derailment was a
mystery. The train was only going 30
miles  an  hour.
Cable Completed.
The submarine cable from the wireless station on Digby Island to Prince
Rupert's coast was completed yester
day, and today the men are busy stringing wires to town. The wireless station
is working first rate. They heard the
steamers Rupert City and Princess
talking a couple of nights ago, as well
as other stations on the coast.
It was an enthusiastic crowd that
filled the Manson meeting last night.
The supporters of the people's candidate are increasing rapidly every day
ar.d their enthusiasm is mounting high.
The committee rooms in Dr. Meln-
tyre's block were not only filled, but
there was not standing room, and a
fighting feeling of confidence was displayed which assures Mr. Manson's
election next Thursday.
There were several speakers heard
before the mayoralty candidate, and
all were well received and given a splendid hearing. All predicted Mr. Manson's
election and the election of those aldermanic candidates supporting his platform.
J. F. Macdonald was elected chairman and D. W. Morrisey was chosen
secretary.   The chairman expressed his
| pleasure at being thus honored, and he
j then   declared  the   meeting  open.
The Metlakatla band and Kaufmann's
orchestra were present and at the opening of the meeting, and in between the
addresses rendered selections, which
were greatly appreciated by the audience
and kept them in very high spirits,
although the music was hardly necessary
to create any enthusiasm among Mr.
Manson's   hundreds   of   supporters.
G. W. Arnott was the first speaker
of the evening, and he was given a
warm reception. He stated that he came
I into the field without apology to. anyone.
He was out to run and he would never
I be idle. He was proud to be supporting
the first mayor of Prince Rupert,
William Manson. As he went around and
sized up the situation he could see where
Mr. Manson was gaining ground. He
was a strong advocate of the single
tax, which was the best for Prince
Rupert, and everyone who had the
interest of the city at heart should gel
out and work for the single tax..
Everyone admits that Mr. Manson
is the strongest man in the city for the
mayor's chair, and we must elect him. As
for himself, he said he wanted every
vote in the city. He would try to see
each voter as he wanted to assist in
the organization of this city. If he was
elected, he would prove that he was a
man and if he was otherwise in any
particular he would be satisfied to
retire. He was one of the pioneers of
Prince Rupert, having been here a
year before the sale of lots. He was
interested in the city and wanted to
see it grow into one ol the finest in the
Dominion.     Applause.
D. W. Morrisey was the second
speaker. He was sorry not to be present
on the previous evening, but he was not
feeling well. He was glad to report
that from what he had learned from the
multitude of the people who gather a-
round the wharf, that William Manson's
election ,jyas positively assured Applause .. Furthermore, he was able to
report that V. W Smith and G. W. Morrow would also be elected Applause .
He said that he had been slandered by
an employer of a well known wholesale
house who said in a restaurant that.
he the speaker had been responsible
for the employment of the Japs on the
G. T. P. He said that in all his life he
had not employed, or consented to the
employment of Japanese, and moreover
he had never given a nickle of his money
to the Japs. Applause. As to the
temperance question.he said he was not
a temperance crank, nor was he a drinking man. He wanted to see licenses,
but he wanted also to see them under

tinued  All Winter.
The coal mines owned by the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway, near the town
of Telkwa, in the Bulkley Valley,
have been vigorously developed since
work was started last fall, and during
that time over 1600 feet of underground
work, tunneling, etc., has been done
by the gang under C.E. Betts, superintendant, and J. Goldsworthy, foreman.
Lots of coal was opened up and the
properties are looking extremely well.
These mines will necessarily be the main
dependence of the G. T. P., for a long
distance to the east and west, and, so
far as known, is the only coal property
owned by the Railway Company in
British Columbia. It is understood
that work will be continued until the
mines are in shape to produce several
hundred tons daily by the time steel
is laid to the property.
Stewart Has Snow Yet.
J. N. McPhee, of Stewart, who is in
the city, says that Syewart is busy and
has lots of people going in on every
boat. At the present time there is
still lots of snow on the ground. The
season is very backward. "Why at
this time last year," said Mr. McPhee,
"we were planting our garden stuff."

MANSON AND THE PLEBISCITE.
The liquor license question is the one issue in the civic campaign in which
there is a marked difference of opinion between the mayoralty candidates. The
Stork ticket passed up the issue until forced to take it up by Mr. Manson's
straightforward declaration. Mr. Stork now says he is for high licenses. Mr.
Manson says he believes in hotel licenses and first-class restaurant licenses after
a plebiscite has been taken on the question of whether or not there shall be any
licenses. According to the expressed opinion of nearly all the public men in the
city, the citizens should have the right to say whether they shall have licenses.
To refuse the plebiscite now is breaking faith with the citizens. It shows the
difference between a man who makes good on his promises and a man who trims
sail to suit altered conditions.
There is no hardship in having a plebiscite immediately after the municipal
election. It can be secured while the license board is being organized and while
the application for licenses are being advertised. There need be no delay; yet in
the meantime the electors bave had an opportunity to express their opinion.
The majority must decide.
The composition of the license board is not vested in the city.   The Mayor is
ex-officio a member and the chairman.   The Provincial Government then appoints j
the other two members���one is taken from the City Council, and the other is a I
citizen without office.   Thus the control  is with the Provincial Government, or!
with the member who has the nomination of the appointees.   Whether we agree
or disagree with this system or patronage does not affect the issue.    The fact
remains that William Manson is the man who really controls the situation, and
when he promises a plebiscite it not only shows a manly and honest course, but
he is ready to deliver the goods.    If William Manson desired to use his position
and privileges to make promises and gain the support of the liquor element, he is
the one man who could do it; but he is honest enough to leave it to the electors.
Manson's policy is for the people.    Do you pppreciate it?

From Silver Cup Mine   This   Year
300-Foot Tunnel to Be Driven.
Those interested in the Silver Cup
Mining Co., received a most pleasant
surprise yesterday when Mr. J. D.
Campbell, the superintendant, arrived
in the city with a load of ore which he
took out of the mine. It filled the hearts
of the directors with joy for it is the
best ore which has yet been discovered
in this district. The samples he brought
down were by no means selected,
yet the lot would assay at least $160
to the ton, while some of the samples
would go much higher.
Mr. Campbell will return to the mines
shortly and upon his arrival will begin
with greater energy, the season's work,
and he has his work cut out for him too.
The company intends to ship 100 tons
of ore from Silver Cup and 100 tons
from the Rising Sun this summer. At
present the ore has to be packed out,
and that is a difficult proposition until
all the snow has gone. The Silver Cup
mine is on the top of the mountain,
at an altitude of some 6000 feet and
there is still 10 to 15 feet of snow, which
will not be all gone until July.
The company has two claims in the
corporation the Silver Cup and the
Silver Dollar, and two other claims in
the same lead. On the Silver Cup they
have one tunnel 200 feet long, arid they
got ore the full distance from a few
inches to two feet wide. They are now
putting down the Winze, and immediately on Mr. Campbell's return he will
start a new tunnel to be run back
500 feet. There will be ten men or more
working all summer, as the Company
intends to get as much development
work done this summer as possible.
This is one of the best mines in Northern British Columbia, and it is the
most promising. A number of local
people have purchased the stock already
and are holding onto it.

be augmented before the close of the

perfect control. Applaune. As to the
labor question, he was heartily in accord
\ with their platform, from the top line
to the bottom, and he would support
i it through thick and thin. Further,
he would give Mr. Hilditch his undivided support. The speaker also touched
upon the financial question. He favored
a long term loan for.street improvements
but shorter time loans for water, light
and telephones, as these last mentioned
utilities will be self supporting and will
look after themselves. In concluding,
Mr. Morrisey was roundly aplauded.
T. Y. McKay secretary of the I. W.
W., was called upon next and he was
well received. All were interested in
municipal government, and all over the
continent there was a lot of corruption
in many centres. How does it come
about? It is through a series of influences at work. Corporations are the
chief force and they must either be
controlled by the council, or control
the   council. There   is    only    one
and that is socialism. In this election
the fight seemed to be between the two
mayoralty candidates. He had a personal objection to Mr. Stork being
elected mayor. It was because
he claimed to be a pioneer in the city,
and in the telephone question. He claimed to have seen the approach of the B.
C. Telephone batallions. But what
did he do? ���he organized the sock-
eye and Muskeg militia. He wants
to be major and mayor at the same time.
Stork claimed William Manson crawled
into the jobs, but he is doing exactly
the same thing himself, and more.
"Gentlemen,"said Mr. McKay, "Mr.
Manson is the man for Mayor of this
City." Applause.
Mr. Kaufmann when called stated
that he had been asked if he was a
union musician. He said, yes, and he
had his card with him. He hoped that
union musicians would be employed
universally in future. He was strongly in favour of Mr. Manson and Mr.
Morrow and hoped that they would be
elected
William Manson was warmly received
and expressed his pleasure in hearing
the previous speakers, who had given
very interesting and practical speeches.
In reference to his platform, he said
that the more he considered the items,
| the better ho liked it. It was a business
; proposition that could be worked out,
and would have to be worked out. He
: denied the rumors being circulated
that he was brought out by a clique.
| He had no strings attached to him whatever He would proceed along his own
lines and no one, or any number, could
drive him. He said that, as he proceeded
with his canvas, he was meeting with
increased encouragement and his election one week from to-night was
assured that the excellent men supporting him would also be elected. Applause.
He put in a good word for Mr. Morrisey,
who, he stated, was a very good man and
one who had given great thought to
public questions. He was sure that Mr.
Morrisey would get a very large support.
Someone asked Mr. Manson to explain the situation in regard to the water
in Woodworth lake. Mr. Manson did so,
and pointed out that the Prince Rupert
Light and Water Co., had no longer
any rights on the lake that were worth
anything. The city would get a reserve
of 300 inches of water and that water
comes here first, so that the Company's
option is useless as far as power purposes
are concerned. The company has done
nothing If he���the Speaker���was
elected, he would make a direct application to the Government for the 300
inches and later take proceedings to
expropriate the company's water privilege. The cost to the city would not
be at any figures presented by the
company, but an arbitrator's figures.
The company had practically spent no
money and therefore their rights are
worth nothing like $30,000 and he would
not think of paying any such figure.

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which?���
TTHE germ of both Life and
*��� Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
Eartners, wife, or children, seems
ut common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

LOCAL
The hospital board meets this afternoon in the court house.
The government steamei Falcon has
returned from a month's holiday in
the south and is at Essington ready for
police duty on the wicked cannerymen.
It is reported among the local mining
men that an excursion of mining men I
from Cobalt and Toronto is being organ-
ized to visit Stewart in the near future.
The fame of Stewart is spreading far.
The Rupert City unloaded several
hundred barrels of cement at the Foley,
Welch & Stewart dock yesterday for j
the concrete work at the Zanardi Rapids
Bridge.. The cement was put on to a
scow and has been taken there.
The Omineca Herald says: "The
clearing of right of way on the G. T. P.,
which has been progressing all winter
and spring, is nearly completed as far
east on the second section as Morice-
town,   thirty  miles   east  from   here." |
It is reported that a theatrical company intend erecting a $50,000 theatre
on Third avenue.   They intend putting
in a moving picture show for a start and i
obtaining the  best  pictures available, j
The stage will be large enough to accomo- j
date a stock company which they hope
to have here this summer.
It is currently reported that- many
names have been placed on the voter's
list who are not British subject:', or
who have not resided in the city for six1
months. It may be that some of these
people do not know the same penalties
apply to the taking of a declaration
which is not true as to perjury.
Fire   Was Checked.
W. E. Burritt and family, who
reside at the corner ol Centre St., and
Second avenue, were nearly burned
out this morning and had it not been for
the prompt action and good work
of several young men, the whole block
would have been enveloped in a few
minutes. About a quarter after eight,
while breakfast was being prepared,
the wooden wall took fire from the
stove and had burned into the partition. An alarm was given and F. B.
Deacon and H. F. MacLeod, who have
rooms next door, hurried to the assistance. By the use of plenty of water
and the pulling off of a number of
boards on the outside, they succeeded
in extinguishing the glames. They were
assisted in the work by Geo. Leek. Only
a few dollar's damage was done.
