PATTULLO vs. MANSON
Crossed Swords on the Public
Platform Last Evening���Other
Candidates Spoke���Big   Meeting.
T. D. Pattullo's meeting in the Empress theatre last night was a great
success. The place was packed, including many ladies, and all the candidates were given a good hearing. Mr.
Pattullo made a clean and clear
speech on his platform and he told the
I people why he could not support Mr.
- Manson as candidate for mayor.
William Manson replied to Mr. Pattullo
in a masterly manner. He accepted
all the responsibilities of his office and
I he invited criticism, but ,he contended
I his critics were wrong, so far as his
. conduct in relation to the Tsimpsean
I Power charter and the City's charter
I were  concerned.     He    did    all     any
5 man could possibly do.
Promises  of  other   public  meetings
���were made and the contest will be a
���warm one
I   Dr.   Clayton   and   T.    Y.   McKay
?liave withdrawn from the field on ac-
Jfcount of technicalities in  the election
j until the railway is completed. New
industries cannot be expected until
th at time, but we should have a first
class city by then. The speaker asked
for everyone's support..
As to his reasons for supporting Mr,
Stork, he said he was elected on a delegation to Victoria to protest against
the Tsimpsean Power Co. He went to
Mr. Manson, and later, to the Premier,
also to the executive council. Mr.
Mr. Morrow was elected spokesman,
and he did his duty. Durinjr the meet-
Mr. John Dean, of the Company,
arrived and asked to be heard. Mr. Mc
Bride asked Dean many questions
and deceived the delegation.. When
Dean retired Mr. Manson said, "All
you have to do is to buy out the Tsimpsean Power Co.," Mr. McBride said
"The legislation of British Columbia
has not money enough to buy out all
the wild cat schemes in the country."
Mr. Manson was squelched. He did
not act as Mr. Pattullo thought he should
have. Mr. Manson was also weak in
his address on the floor of the house,
during the second reading of the bill.
The delegates were very much disgusted.
Later, the speaker stated that Mr.
Manson refused to bring the matter up
again    in    the    Conservative    caucus,
.act.
T. D. Pattullo.
Mr. Pattullo was given a warm reception when he appeared on the platform  and  extended  an   invitation  to
the  mayoralty candidates  and  alder-
. manic candidates to come to the platform   and   have  chairs.      The   candidates complied  with  the request.
Mr.  Pattullo stated that he would
R throw the meeting open,  except  that
���S he reserved the right to open and close
the  meeting.     Mr.  Thos.   Dunn   was
elected  chairman.
;   Mr.   Dunn   expressed   his   pleasure
at being elected as chairman.  He asked
���'the audience to refrain from interrupt-
'ating the candidates.   If anyone had anything to say they could say it from the
iplatform.      Mr.  Halsey  was  selected
��tts secretary.
I Mr. Pattullo in opening referred to
<Bishop   DuVernet   re.   nomination   of
'School trustees.   He said that he would
>be   glad   to   receive   nominations   for
QjjBchool trustees. This idea was adopted.
I Proceeding   with   his   address,   Mr.
ftattullo stated that there were a couple
Bf salient points which he wished to
Hscuss, viz,���the liquor question, the
Abour  question   and  the  question   of
gfcrmanent   improvements.      He   took
ljmp the liquor question first, and read
3b     platform  thereon.     He   believed
^Iniformity   throughout   the   province
pi  this  matter.     He said  that every
Seaport town in the world was a liquor
jttcensed  town.    He did  not advocate
W material matter in preference to our
Boral welfare.   We cannot legislate for
flfor moral  welfare���that is largely an
educational   matter.      As   to   labour,
he favoured an eight hour day and fair
Wages on all civic work.    He was not
antagonistic to unions, and he believed
they were a great good for the labouring man.    He explained his position on
||the   matter.      His   sympathies   were
Pwith    organized    labour,    but   if he
jjAvas  elected   he  would   also   represent
���Unorganized      labour,   and   he   could
|not commit  himself to  unions.     He
{thought   the   fair   wage   clause   fully
|covered this matter.    He thought he
vas justified in asking for and expecting
the support of organized labour.
Mr. Pattullo read his platform deal-
ling with permanent improvements. He
[proposed  to  borrow  as  much  money
as the city  could,  and  spend  it  on
permanent  improvements,  thus  create
, large payrool and keep the people here
report that Dr. Clayton was not able
to qualify as a candidate. He denied
that he laid a complaint before the
registrar. He denied also several other
rumors he had heard. He said he took
no part in any personalities. He thought
the contest was too big for anything
of that kind. In taking up his platform, he said it only differed from Mr.
Manson's in two particulars, viz,���the
exemption of taxation on improvements
and the liquor question.. In both of
these the speaker supported his own platform and pointed out where it was
superior.
In conclusion, Mr. Stork said that he
still stood on the same platform. He
would, at a near date, have a meeting
under his own auspices, when he would
expund on the planks of his platform.
He wished to tell the people that he
was not particularly anxious to carry
off the honors of first mayor of Prince
Rupert, but if he was elected he would
fight for the rights of the people.
William Manson, M.P.P.
William Manson was given a warm
reception when he was called upon.
He thanked Mr. Pattullo for inviting
him to appear on the platform at his
meeting.   Before taking up the remarks
Tsimpsean Power Co., got a charter
through the house without a division
of the house. It was advertised in the
the papers and no one objected to it. He
explained how bills were dealt wkh in
in the House. At the time the charter
was granted Mr. Manson was not a
member of the House. As to the charter, he said that before the delegates
arrived in Victoria, he had fought it
out with the house and tHe cabinet.
Every member in the House opposed
him. He could not see any use In barking up against a stone wall. He could
not see why he should be blamed.
He liked men to be manly men and deal
with things in a manly way. He was
not afraid of any criticism. As to the
charter he said the company cannot
come in the city without the consent
of the Commissioner of Crown Lands,
or proper local authorities. The Government refused to grant the company
permission to come in. They told the
company to to go to Prince Rupert and
make their bargain. The time for the
Company to start expired on April
25th and they have not complied. Then
the company's plans have to be submitted to the Lieutenant Governor in Council and the city would be heard. Mr.
Manson said that some suggested  he
PURCHASE HENRIETTE.
G.T.P. Take Over all of McKenzie's
Fleet  Except   Rupert City.
Vancouver, May 11,���Negotiations
were completed yesterday between the
officers of the G. T. P., and McKenzie
Bros., for the transfer of the entire
fleet and interests of McKenzie Bros.,
to the Grand Trunk Pacific, with the
exception of the Rupert City. The
transfer was officially made to-day.
The deal involves the purchase by
the Railway company of the steamer
Henriette, the tug Escort No. 2., just
equipped with a ten thousand dollar
boiler, and the barge Georgian. These
have already been working for the Grand
Trunk for some months.
It is reported that Capt. S. F. McKenzie has been offered the post of
port captain in Vancouver for the
company, but that he will not accept,
preferring to devote his time tn the handling cf the Rupert City.
Manson's Policy���As It Works In Vancouver
The " land tax only " is one of the definite planks in Wm. Manson's policy.   This article shows
how it is affecting'other cities.   It is taken from the Vancouver World editorial page.
"Evidence of the fact that the abolition of the tax on property improvements is resulting in benefit to the community is accumulating ��Vv.ry Jay.   The Everett Morning Tribune has the following
' The question of taxation is always a live subject among thinking people, and the'
' following incident illustrates how the method of taxation may either help or retard'
' the growth of a community. An Everett citizen who owns lots on Hewitt avenue '
' had intended to improve his property by the erection of a brick dwelling ; but he '
' has changed his mind, and gives the following reason for so doing: ' I own busi-'
'ness lots in Vancouver, B.C., and received the following response to an enquiry'
'which I made: 'Vancouver, B.C., April 20, 1910.���Dear sir:���Replying to your'
' favor of the 18th inst., we beg to say that your information is correct. There is '
' no tax on building or personal property in this city. Yours truly, Allan Bros. '
' 509 Pender street.' ' The above information decided the matter for me. The '
' building I had planned for Hewitt avenue will be erected in Vancouver, where im-'
' provements are exempt from taxation. In that city I will be compelled to pay no '
' more or less than the man who holds idle lots on either side of me. I would rather'
' have built in Everett, but didn't like the prospect of paying an annual fine on the '
' cost of my investment. So I am adapting myself to our system, which makes it'
' more profitable to hold lana idle and escape taxation than to use it. Some one has '
' said that our system of taxation enables landowners to ' sleep and thrive.' I pro-'
'pose to build in Vancouver and sleep in Everett.'
Comment on this article is needless, although it must be remembered, of course, that there is a provincial tax on
personal property."
which was held later. He remarked that
he was aware of a telegram being in
town to the fact that the Tsimpsean
Power Co's charter had been cancelled
and we have nothing to fear.. That may,
or may not, be true, but it is an old election dodge. Mr. Patullo thought,
that if Mr. Manson had told the Premier that if this company was not
bought out he would leave the floor of
the House, a measure of relief would
have been afforded. He regretted that
Mr. Manson had not adopted a different
course. In conclusion, he said Mr.
Manson was a good soldier, when there
was no fighting. He felt that Mr. Man-
son would do just as the government
told him to do. Again, he thought Mr.
Manson was a good small game hunter���
but was not the man to tackle a grizzly.
We will have many grizzlies to fight in
this city.
Fred Stork.
Mr. Fred. Stork was the first mayoralty candidate to speak, and his supporters were quite delighted. In opening,
Mr. Stork said that, for all he had to
say it was hardly worth while to call
upon him. He thanked Mr. Pattullo
for his courtesy in asking him on to
the platform.   He then referred to the
made by Mr. Pattullo, he wished to
speak on his platform. He said Mr.
Stork's was a lot of "as soon as possibles"
"if practicables" etc. Mr. Manson
said that in Nanaimo they never
taxed improvements. Vancouver was
getting away from the double tax,
and Edmonton the same. If the single
tax was good for those cities it would
be good enough for Prince Rupert.
A taxation of land values only was the
only practicable system to work upon.
He also proposes to encourage industries
and to do this by proposing not to
tax their buildings or improvements.
Mr. Manson relied to Mr. Stork's
arguments on the liquor question. It
was only fair to submit this license
question to a vote of the people.
Mr. Manson also touched upon the
improvement plank in his platform.
Since last meeting he had had a deputation of labor men wait upon him,
asking him to make hisself a little
more clear as to what he meant by current rate of wages.  He did so.
As to Mr. Pattullo's criticism, he
said he was glad to have Mr. Pattullo,
or anyone else criticize him. He explained the nature of the diu'erence between
Mr. Pattulo and himself.   In 1907 the
should have resigned. He said that if
he had Jone so he would have been
ashamed to come back to this city. He
pointed out where this city was in good
shape so far as the Tsimpsean Power
Co., was concerned. He said the delegates wanted something and would not
accept anything else. The speaker said
he would just as soon take the brains
of the government as the brians of the
four men who  went to Victoria.
As to the water situation, he said that
he had to persistently refuse the G. T.
P., water records. He was beseiged, week
after week, by representatives of the
company. He refused. As a result
the city has its own water works system.
Had he granted those records, the G. T.
P., or a subsidiary company would have
owned the water works system in this
city. Again, when the question of wages
came up, the G. T. P., cut the wages
from $45 to $35. Mr. Manson refused
to pay them and fought it out with
Mr. Chamberlain and the wages were
put back to the old rate of $45, as the
G. T. P. act required.
As to Woodworth lake water, Mr.
Manson said that SOO inches on the
lake had been reserved for Prince Rupert.
Truce  May Not Last.
London, May 11,���There are signs
to-day of a collapse in the truce between
the political parties, which was declared
shortly after the king's death. It
is feared that a crisis will come soon.    ���
The Liberals accuse the Conservatives
of taking advantage of the understanding to strengthen their party and fear
that a delay in the fight against the
Lords will weaken their chances to
end the veto of the House of Lords.
The cabinet held its first meeting
to-day with King George, but the results are not known.
The King has refused to issue an order for universal mourning because of
financial stress it will bring to many
people.
Assize Court Resumed.
Vancouver, May 10.���The assize cour
resumed its sitting this morning, and
have again taken up the hearing of
the Julia Lewis case. Lewis is charged
with the murder of Peter Scurry on
December 3rd. last in Vancouver.
The grand jury to-day returned true
bills against William Davis, charged
with false pretences, and Claude Heaton
who is alleged to have assaulted a police
officer in  Prince  Rupert.
Mysterious Murder.
Denver, Col., May 11,���A horrible
and mysterbus murder occurred here,
when Mrs. Katherine Wilson was strangled to death in her palatial home.
The murderer carved the words "Delta"
on her forehead. Tne body wis found
in a packing case in the basement of
her new home. The police are at a
loss to account for the strange sign but
seek a strange Japanese.

THE    PRINCE    RUPERT   OPTIMIST
The Prince Rupert Optimist
Daily Edition.
Wednesday, May 11
"A WAYMAKER FROM NANAIMO."
Up here in Prince Rupert���where we see big mountains, big fish, big money
and big men ���we grow accustomed to things, events and personages that attract
attention and admiration elsewhere. We have lots of egotism, but sometimes
not sufficient conceit. For instance, the Canadian Courier, in one of its late
editions, has a front-page editorial and photograph of our own William Manson,
"who helped to build two Pacific towns." The Courier is the leading magazine
weekly of Eastern Canada.    It says:
"A Waymakku From Nanaimo.���The first representative from Prince Rupert is Scotch enough to have been a Hudson's Bay Company factor. Mr. William
Manson was born in the Shetland Islands, on whose bleak shores he stayed long
enough to get an accountant's education though what on earth he could have
expected to make out accounts for in the Shetlands nobody knows. At twenty
years of age he got away and went just about as far as a steamboat could carry
him ���to Vancouver Island; to Nanaimo, where for eighteen years he was a way-
maker. And he began constructive pioneerism in real earnest���twelve years
member of the Nanaimo School Board, three years an alderman and four years
Mayor of Nanaimo the like of which never would have happened to him had he
stayed in the islands where the ponies come from.
" What more natural than to go into politics? In 1905 the man from Shetland was elected to fill the vacancy left by Mr. W. W. B. Mclnnes, resigned to
become Governor of the Yukon. In two years he was Provincial Secretary and
Minister of Education whereby he remembered some of his youthful doubts at
the academy in Shetland.
" However, he got a bump at the very next election 1907 ; defeated at the
polls ; went straight up to Prince Rupert, leaving Nanaimo behind ; Government
Agent for two years at the new port on the Pacific. Last November he resigned
his iob to go once more into politics.    Prince Rupert needed a representative in
the Legislature; Mr. Manson was elected as the first Mr. Manson is still in the
field, ready to grow up with Prince Rupert as once he grew up with Nanaimo.
He will probably not travel far from Prince Rupert, which by the time he is
done with politics will be a big commercial seaport."
A Good  Sale.
V. Bannister has completed the
transfer of his propeity in Bulkley
Valley, hear the mouth of the Morice
river, to eastern people. The piece
consists of 420 acres and the price
was $10,000. The property is the
nearest point, on the railroad, to the
Morice river coal, and it is reported
the deal was for speculative purposes,
in view of the development of these
coal measures.
Service  for   Stewart.
While the Board of Trade and the
Stewart Citizen's Committee are clamoring for a boat service between Prince
Rupert and Stewart, the Prince Rupert
Transportation company are arrangin.1;
for a tri-weekly service. At the present
time they have the Merry Widow, ;\
small gasoline sloop and the College
Widow, a 60 foot twin screw union
engine boat is now being built for them.
This is expected here at any time and the
service will then be inaugurated. The
new boat will carry ten tons of lreighr
besides a lot of passengers. She is expected to give a good service.
Boosts for B. C.
Toronto, May 8,���Immense boulders of rich ore, "as large as the King
Edward Hotel" are reported to be
plentiful in almost incredible numbers in Northern British Columbia
by Mi. John Edgecombe, of Seattle,
who is in Toronto on mining business
for a few days. \*
Mr. Edgecombe, in describing the
great mining country, says that these
boulders, without any exaggeration,
will run two thousand ounces to tne
ton of silver, seven,to twenty] per'cent
copper, and from seven to two hundred
and fifty dollars to the ton in gold.
"Honest now," said Mr. Edgecombe in his hearty vernacular of the
west, "1 could go up there with a shovel
and dig up $5,000 worth of ore in a
short time, and I wouldn't have to work
overtime to do that, either." In
describing what he broadly calls the
Portland Canal country, Mr. Edgecombe
says that Mr. D. D. Mann, vice-president of the Canadian Northern Railway,
nas spent over $3,000,000 on the new
railroad out there and that he will
spend $5,000,000 before it will be completed.
"The Guggenheims would be very
pleased if Mr. Mann and I would
take $25,000,000 for our holdings out
there and go and die," said he. "They
cannot get it though, for in my humble
opinion, the property we bold is worth
several times that amount. While every
body else was busy getting assays,
I went in and bought up the whole
country for $1,000,000. Mr. Mann had
secured a railway charter and was
proposing to build out there, so I met
him and made a deal with him.  He will
be manager.   We have 5,000 acres out
there besides five big mining properties, j
and there will be loads of time to get
the stuff out."

Milwaukee, May 11,���The entire
western part of Minnesota forest lands
are smouldering. Vast regions of Wisconsin lands have been swept clear
by the flames and several villages are
threatened with destruction. Very large
losses are inevitable.
The fires are scattered over an area
of 600 miles. The most dense pall of
smoke seen in a score of years hang
over Lake Superior. The fires are burning in all Wisconsin.

Washburn, Wis., May 11,���The flames
have entered the largest tract of standing timber in the state. A high wind is
fanning the flames and the entire crews
of many lumber companies are fighting
bravely. The fires have been raging
for two days and the homes of the farmers in the Four Mile Creek valley,
along the Northern Pacific Railway
are theatened. The fires are burning
on  every side.
At northern points the northern
Minnesota fires are blazing up and
threatening the settlers homes from
Reservation river to !i0 miles beyond
Grand Marais to a point 50 miles west
of Duluth. Reports of serious fires are received from all points.
The town of Taft near Grand Marais
is nearly destroyed. Only 8 buildings
are left. The fires are all along the
right of way of the Northern Pacific
and Great Northern to Duluth. Fires
are raging between Merrill and Tomahaw.
Wise, and Mill Foss Is in danger,
The town of Corning is threatened
and the timber in Lincoln, Oneida and
Marathon counties is burning.
The forest fires are increasing and the
west end of the peninsular of Michigan
i is destroyed. Much valuable timber
I is now threatened in the village of
| Ralston, which is surrounded. Two
i homes are already burned anil the fire
continues to gain headway in spite
i of the best efforts of every resident.
Duluth, May 11,���Wireless from Grand
Marais, Minn, says the fires are bearing
! down upon the village and it is doomed.
The fire was so close that the wireless
operator had to abandon the town.
Grand Marias is situated on the north
shore of Lake Superior. Steps have been
taken to send relief. As yet no lives
have been lost. The wild animals are
rushing to the lake shore.
Wireless Station.
The wireless station on Digby Island is completed and ready for use.
This morning the contractors started
stretching the cable  across the chan-
| nel,   and   when   they   reach   this  side
j they will use the G. T. P., poles as far
as the lower dock and from there to
the government office will Wkaly use
the telephone poles.   About two and a
! half miles of wiring is necessary, but it
is expected it will be ready for use in
a day or two.
The   Prince   Rupert   station   is   the
j finest on the Coast and when it is op-
! erated it will be a great boon to the city.,
and  especially  the  shipping  interests.
| The station will be in communication
with the Pacific Ocean, and it will also I
! communicate with the Queen Charlotte
islands, Ketchikan, Alaska, Tri-angle
island, near Vancouver and will catch
messages from San Fransisco.
The contractors have been at work on
the station for several months and they
have made a good job. The continent al
code will be used at the station and the
messages will be translated and sent
to the government telegraph office here
by use of the Morse code.

L. Morrow & Co.
A bunch of Montenegrans worked a
funny stunt on the customs officials
last night. The City of Seattle brought
up a gang of about 100 of those foreigners. When the customs official appeared on the scene, they demanded to see
the necessary $25. There was not over
$50 or $75 in the bunch, so a purse was
made up between them and one or two
got off. They in turn handed the money
across to one or two more who got
off. Then the officials got wise and
drove the newcomers away from the
boat. They walked down towards the
stern, which was about 15 feet from
the wharf. The fortunates on the wharf
consulted the unfortunates on the boat,
with the result that $25 was put in a
tobacco pouch with a stone and tossed
to those on board. The pouch hit a
window and bounced back into the salty
drink. The loosers were nearly frantic
but that put a stop to all furths* attempts to avoid the officials. Thb
moneyless new-comers had to remain
on board.

PATTULLO vs.MANSON
CONTINUED PROM  I'AGE 1
That reserve is good and the government   will   make   it   good.
In conclusion, he thanked the audience
for the careful hearing granted him. He
had no strings attached to him. He
thought it ill became a man of the years
and experience of Mr. Thomas Dunn
to introduce the name of Premier
McBride in this campaign. There
are no politics in this. The speaker
said that he appealed to the people
upon his past record. If that was not
sufficient he did not ask for their votes.
If he was elected he was prepared to
assume the responsibilities and duties
of the office and he would perform them
to the best of his ability.
The  Aldermen,
Mr. George Arnott was the first
speaker, and he made a short speech
and gave way to the others, some of
whom had not had an opportunity
to  speak  before..
Dr. Mclntyre acknowledged the courtesy of Mr. Pattullo and said he would
not make a speech. He did not intend
to ask anyone for a vote. If the people
wanted him, he was willing to serve.
Mr. McKay said that, owing to circumstances over which he had no
control, he would have to withdraw
from the contest,
Vernon \V. Smith said he would
not make a speech. He wished to say
however, that since he heard Mr.
Manson's speech and the replies to
his critics, he was proud he was supporting Mr. Manson. If he was elected
would use common sense in all matters.
W. P. Lynch said he was still standing on Mr. Stork's platform.
G, W. Morrow was called upon
next and he was given the reception
of the evening. He expressed his
appreciation of Mr. Pattullo's invitation. He said, in reference to Mr.
Pattullo's criticism that he thought
he could make a better job of it and
still support Mr. Manson. Mr. Morrow
said that he was probably wrong in
criticising Mr. Manson and that
Mr. Manson was absolutely right. He
was now a candidate for the council.
He was not like some of the others.
He did not come into the fight to get
a licking and he did not intend to if
he could help it. If he was elected, he
would do everything in his power for
: the city irrespective of who was mayor.
M. M. Stephens was called and he
made a happy speech. He said this
election was going some. He would like
to win and if he is elected he will do all
hi can for the best interests of the city.
He was on the Stork ticket and he would
stay with it. He dealt with the liquor
license system and said he supported the
high license system. He also touched
the plank of carrying out of public
improvements. He thought these improvements should be gone on with at
; once. He emphasized the need of a
good, efficient and well paid fire department, also health officer, hospital,
city engineer, etc. He was out to win, but
: he could not make a   personal canvas.
H. H. Clarke was next and made a
short speech and asked for the support
of all the electors.
Barrow was the next speaker. He sakl
he had been away for sometime, but he
now took the opportunity of accepting
1 the offered nomination. He would
do his best to win and if he did, he would
do his best to serve the city. He supported Mr. Stork's platform and the labour
platform, except that he did not agree
with the uniform wage scale and the
typographical union label on the city
printing.
Mr. Douglas said that, as the hour
was   late,   lie   would   not   detain   the
audience,   except   that,   if  elected,   he
! would carry out the wishes of the people.
Mr. Morrisey was also brief.   He was
strongly   In   favour  of   Mr.   Manson's
platform,   which   was   intelligent   and
gave information.     He spoke on the
local improvement andlicense questions.
1 Dr. Clayton said that he did not come
to make a speech, but to thank his mover
and seconder. He had to withdraw
from the fight, not because he was not
here long enough, or because he had not
the qualifications. 11 was because he
was not the original purchaser of the
property and his name was not on the \
register. He was glad to hear Mr.
Stork's remarks to him, but he did not
think any explanation was neceisary.
He was a staunch supporter of William
Manson and his platform. It told just
what he would do, and when he would
do it.
Mr. Hildridge said he was on the la-!
bor platform. He endorsed Mr. Stork's
platform as far as it goes. He was ;
strong for the six o'clock closing of all
stores. He was also strong on having
all improvements done by day labour.
He said the Hospital board was going
to call for new- tenders and there were
six members of the board seeking election. They will now have a chance to
show if they are sincere or not on the
eight hour day
Mr. Pattullo, in closing the meeting,
said that Mr. Manson claimed he was
not a hot head.   Still, Mr. Manson was
pretty  well  wound  up to-night.     He!
commended    Mr.    Manson   on    many
things he did, but he felt Mr. Manson 1
was not there when the critical time
came.     Mr.  Pattullo  replied  to  Mr.!
Manson's explanation of his actions at!
Victoria.
In conclusion he thanked one of the
old boys of the Yukon.    He said he i
would rather have  had that reference
than be an alderman of Prince Rupert.

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
���"THE 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 lire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but 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.

The provincial government is to be I
asked for a grant of $:10,000 for necess-
ary improvements and the Stewart
Citizens' association at its last meeting
authorized the executive committee
to write Premier McBride asking this
sum. It was considered reasonable the!
government should donate this sum on
account of the revenue it will derive
from the Government sale of lots there.
It is estimated the revenue derived will
equal a quarter of a million dollars.
It is absolutely necessary that sewei j
improvements and others be undertaken
at once, and as there are no other ways I
for  the camp  to raise  money it was
necessary to appeal to the government.
The association also decided to organ
ize   a   volunteer  fire  department   and
this is soon to be formed.

reference to the great loss sustained in
the death of King Edward. In the evening he administered the rite of confirmation to twelve candidates, comparing
the step they were taking in ratifying
and confirming their baptismal vows,
to the taking of the oath of allegiance
to the new king.
