thing to be done at the option of the company, and until that was done there
could be no contract. He also quoted
the evidence of Frewen, showing that
the whole arrangement hinged upon the
company being able to do certain things,
and as it was clearly shown the company
had not performed this contingent act
there could be no contract.
Mr. C. D. Rand was called to the
stand and was forced to give the list
of prices of lots at which they were reserved, Mr. Davis pointing out that one
point to be determined was whether
or not the price was fixed, as this would
complete the evidence of the agreement.
Frewen, in his evidence, had pointed out
that he had bargained to buy before the
auction, and not upon what was left
after the auction.
Argument was first presented by the
defence calling for a nonsuit but the
chief justice said both sides had better
present all the evidence possible, and
then judgment could be reserved upon
application. This course was followed
and the chief justice finally reserved his
decision.
AN ASSESSOR
IN TEN DAYS
CITY WILL  HAVE   STEADY EMPLOYMENT FOR HIM
That Means  the Street Work   Will
Be Started   About   That   Time-
Skeena   District   Industrial  Exhi
bition Asks for Financial Aid.
The council is now about ready to
take up the appointment of a city assessor and new applications have been
called for. Most of last night's session
was spent in committee of the whole
on the by-laws. Aid. Lynch put a new
light in the hearts of the aldermen when
he stated that they would be ready to
use an assessor in about ten days. That
means that the street work will be commenced then.
All the members of the council were
present with Mayor Stork in the chair.
The minutes of the last meeting were
read and adopted.
Fall   Exibition
A communication from the Exhibition committee of the Board of Trade
asking the council for financial assistance.
Aid. Pattullo thought that this was a
matter which the council might well
aid financially.
The Mayor proposed that the communication be referred to the Finance
committee.
Aid. Mclntyre asked why this matter
should be referred to the Finance Committee when the council turned down the
publicity club and the First of July
celebration committee?
The Mayor and Aid. Pattullo replied
that they were not bound to give any
assistance. They wished to get more
light on the subject.
Aid. Barrow thought that as the council
was not in a position to give a substantial sum the council bad better not give
anything.
The matter was referred to the finance
committee.
A petition was received from fifty
residents in Section 7, asking for a 16
foot plank roadway in section seven-
Referred to the streets committee.
Aid. Hilditch and Aid. Lynch had a
little scrap over the way Aid. Lynch
deals with petitions that are received
asking for work to be done.
The Finance committee reported recommending the payment of A. Cuthbert
$330 for services as returning
officer. The report was adopted and the
account   was   ordered   paid.
Aid. Pattullo said the revised city
seal, according to the judge's decision
had been received. If it was satisfactory
he would move that it be accepted and
that Messrs. Craig and Potter be each
awarded a prize of $10.
Assessor   Wanted
Aid. Lynch considered that the time
was near at hand to appoint an assessor
for the city. He asked if it was necessary
to call for new applications. He added
that if the city work was to be done
according to a resolution passed some
time ago, an assessor would be required
pretty soon.
Aid. Mobley said if the frontage tax
system was adopted an assessor would
be   required   forthwith.
Aid. Pattullo asked how soon an assessor would be required.
Aid. Lynch replied "in about ten
days." The aldermen then moved that
applications be advertised for and that
the council cor.sider them a week from
tonight. Aid. Pattullo seconded the
motion and it was carried. Those who
have already applied will be notified.
On motion of Aid. Pattullo and Aid.
Hilditch the by-law relating to the
duties of the city clerk and city treasurer
was read a third time and passed and
numbered by-law No. 5.
The council then went into committee
of the whole and discussed the Local
Improvement By-law.
APPEAL TO SHAUGHNESSY
Trainmen Take Action on Award of
Conciliation Board
(Special to the Optimist)
Montreal, June 28.���No action was
taken by the trainmen's association in
regard to the award of the conciliation
board beyond apprising the board that
the award was not accepted, until this
morning. Many plans were proposed
and several times a strike has been
imminent. But this morning it was
decided that a personal appeal be first
made to Sir Thomas Shaughnessy direct,
and representatives were selected to
wait upon and present the case of the men
to the popular railway president.
TERRORIZES COURT
Small Man Climbs on Chair and Fells
Gigantic Troublemaker
Pittsburg, June 25.���Charles Washington, a seven-foot negro, threatened
to clean out a police court during a
hearing of some friends who had been
arrested. He had court officers and
witnesses cowed until Thonas Carroll, who is but five feet and a half,
placed a chair behind the negro, climbed
upon it and felled him with a blackjack. A squad of police then carried
Washington to a cell.
Attempted Assassination.
Havana, June, 28.���(Special)���A sensational attempt was made last night to
kill Congressman Antonio Samiguel,
but the shot went wide. The would-be
assassin, Manuel Loes, has been arrested.
Trolley to Constantinople
New York, June 28 (Special)���Tenders
are invited for the construction of a
trolley line from this city to Constani-
nople. An application has also been made
to the city council for a franchise for
the roadan.il terminal in this city.
MORE FIRE PROTECTION NEEDED
Building Operations Are Held
Back For That Reason.
People will not Build until the Risk
is Reduced���Insurance Compani s'
Rates are Prohibited.���Fire Department the only Source of Relief
There is common belief among those
who purpose building in Prince Rupert
that if the city council could in any way
hustle along the fire protection legislation that there would be a great deal
more building in the city. At the present time it is practically impossible
to secure insurance, even at the outrageous rates that are quoted. As a
result a big fire in town would put nearly
every man affected out of business entirely. Very little insurance is carried
because it cannot be had. Those who
have plans for new buildings know the
conditions and for that reason many of
them are holding back. The only way
to secure any reasonable rate from the
insurance companies, and they will not
reduce until compelled to, though it
might almost be calldd a shame, is to
establish a modern and complete fire
department. This matter should not be
delayed one day. It is extremely serious
to every citizen in Prince Rupert. There
is not one person who can afford at this
time to be burned out, and since the
insurance companies are so backward,
the only protection the people can get
is from the fire department.
The Fire and Water committee will
receive the everlasting appreciation and
thanks of the people if they will take
the bull by the horns, as it were, and
force through orders for proper apparatus
and equipment for the fire department.
They can decide afterwards whether they
will pay for it out of a general fund or
charge it up to a frontage tax, or whether
they will pay it out of current revenue.
The people do not care a snap about
that. They want to see permanent chief
and brigade, efficient in number and
ability, a modern hose wagon, chemical
engine, ladder, truck, a sufficient number
of hydrants or stand pipes to furnish
water. With those things, and the brigade
well drilled and alive, the citizens with
q little money would not hesitate to
take a chance, but would go ahead with
building operations.
The views of several citizens who have
spoken to the Optimist are expressed
above and it is safe to say that everyone will concur in them. The Fire and
Water committee have the matter in
their own hands and, while thay have
done something, the citizens do not
notice much difference, and they are indeed anxious.
NO TRAFFICKING
IN JUDGESHIP
SIR   WILFRID    LAURIER   DENIES
CORRUPTION CHARGES
Canadian Premier Replies only Because Honor of Judiciary is at
Stake, and makes Unqualified
Denial of Charges.
Ottawa, June 25.���Sir Wilfrid Laurier
this morning gave an explicit and dignified denial to the charge handed out
to the press by Hon. Robert Rogers
charging the federal government with
trafficking in judgships and demanding
$10,000 for the campaign fund as the
price of an appointment to the recent
vacancy on the Manitoba bench.
Sir Wilfrid says the old cry of rake-
off might be set aside without comment, but when the honor of the judiciary is attacked the charge could not
go unchallenged.
"I do not believe there is the slightest foundation for the assertion of Mr.
Rogers" said the premier. "As far as
the government is concerned I give it a
most unqualified denial.
"On behalf of the, government I may
add that if it were true that a judge
had paid a single dollar to anyone in
connection with his appointment, that
judge would not be fit to be on the
bench, and the charge, if true, would
warrant impeachment."
DONATIONS TO THE FAIR.
Winnipeg Exposition   Receives Sun-
stantial Aid from Railways
(Special to the Optimist)
Toronto, June 28.���The Grand Trunk
Pacific has subscribed $500,000 toward
the World's Fair to be held in Winnipeg
in 1914. The Canadian Pacific has subscribed an equal amount, and the Dominion government will give five million
dollars. The success of the project is
therefore   secured.
RAIN STOPS THE
DIRIGIBLE TRIPS
NOW DECRY   UNRELIABILITY OF
SKY   SERVICE
Thirty-two Passengers, Ten of them
Women, Carried on One Trip.���
Made over Fifty-six Miles an Hour
Going With the Wind.
(Special to the Optimist)
Berlin, June 28.���Storms have unfortunately interfered with the regular
sailings of the dirigible balloon Deutsch-
land during the past two days, and now
nothing is talked of but the unreliability
of the service. This is causing much
adverse comment, as hundreds of passengers have purchased tickets and have
no chance of using them.
It is forgotten that many of the excursions were in every way a success.
The 4-hour excursion of last Friday was
much enjoyed. The route was over the
industrial cities in the Dusseldorf district, and there were thirty-two passenger
including twn women, the largest number
ever transported by a similar craft. They
run with the wind, the dirigible attaining a speed of fifty-six and a half miles an
hour.
The airship passed over the great
Krupp works at Essen. On the return
the Deutschland encountered a rainstorm and had to fight her way against
a head wind. But the landing was made
without incident and the passengers
said they had not experienced one
moment of discomfort.
LAURIER COMING WEST
Now Holding First Series of Cabinet
Meetings
(Special to the Optimist)
Ottawa, June 28.���Sir Wilfrid Laurier
yesterday begun the first of a series
of cabinet meetings in the hope of clearing up business before he leaves on his
trip to the west and to Victoria and
Prince Rupert.

LATEST NEWS FROM STEWART.
VALUABLE ORE BODY
International   Mines     are   Turning
Out to be Rich in Mineral
Mr. Tenant told the Optimist yesterday that the International Mining
Co's properties in the Portland Canal
district are progressing very favorably.
They are getting splendid ore out and
its assays on a average of $108.50 per
ton. On the Mammoth claim the tunnel
has been driven 36 feet and on the Dundee
claim there are two open cuts. The
mines promise to be of great value, and
Mr. Tenant is well pleased with them.
9 inches, and for the week ending last
Thursday they made 46 feet 8 inches.
The electric light plant is now working
at the mine and they have over 7000 feet
of floor space in the mine. The assayr's
office is completed and ready for that
official. The machinery at the mine, including the compressor, is all working
fine.
GOVERNMENT WHARF
At Stewart will be Proceeded with at
Once Says Mr. Templeman
RED   CLIFF   MINE
Development Work Progressing Rapidly and Machinery Working well
Mr. Tenant, one of the principal men
in the Red Cliff Mining Co., is in the
city today and reports things at the mine
in the best of shape. He predicted Red
Cliff would turn out to be the greatest
mine on the American continent and that
in five years the shares would be up
to $25 and that in one year they would
be worth $5. The market pride today
is $1.80 and very little if any for sale.
On the Red Cliff they have a tunnel
350 feet long and the rock is breaking
splendidly. Three wekks ago they made
52 feet 8 inches, two weeks ago 38 feet
Harry Smith, of Stewart, received a
wire, via Port Simpson, on Saturday
from Hon. William Templeman, stating
that the work on the Government wharf
would be started at once and hurried
through. The new work will be an extension of the wharf already there and
will run up to Fourth street. The benefit
of this work can only be appreciated by
those who have visited the northern
mining towm.
The McKenzie & Mann wharf is
now under way and the construction is
being rushed. Sol Cameron, the contractor, who will do the grading on the
short line of railway will also get his work
under way the end of this week.
S. Harrison & Co's office has received
a report on the latest assay of the gold
ore found on the new strike. It averages
$8.80 per ton in gold and confirms the
previous assay.

LUXURIOUS AIR TRAVEL
Saloons of New Passenger   Airships
Being Built in Germany
London, June 28.���The German Aerial
Navigation company is t.ying to ensuie
the comfort of the passengeis who will
travel in its airships. The passengers'
cabin for the L. Z. VI1, the first Zeppelin liner, has just been fitted to the balloon now nearing completion at Fried-
richshafen.
The cabin, which was made at Stuttgart, is paneled in mahogany inlaid
with rosewood and mother-of-pearl.
The entire cabin, which is thirty feet
in width, is divided into five smaller
cabins, each of those affording seating
accommodation for four people. The
seats are wicker armchairs screwed to
the floor, but made to revolve. There
are a small anteroom and a lavatory.
The windows are planned very spaciously to allow a good view, and are
fitted with glass in the forepart of the
cabin. The walls are of thin mahogany, while doors, covered with sailcloth, lead forward and aft and to the
gondola of the vessel.
MAYOR   STORK   TALKS
What He Said  to   Reporter  of Victoria Times.
MARTIN COMING BACK
Fighting  Jow   Returns  to   his
Stumping Ground.
Old
Following up his letter to the London
Times, in which he informed the British
nation that he had lost faith in the
members of the Liberal government, to
whose party he belonged, and that he
washes his hands of any idea of compromise with the Conservative party
over the constitution issue, Mr. Martin
has started for his native land, for
Vancouver, and his old friends���more or
less. Not that he has pulled out of
British politics in disgust���he would not
thus forsake his duty of saving the old
country in spite of itself���but there is
a little matter of real estate that requires his presence in Vancouver. When
this deal has been safely negotiated, he
will return to his imperial obligations at
St. Stephens and will continue to maintain his reputation of "Fighting Joe."
His impressions of Mr. Asquith should
be worth listening to.
STEAMER PRINCE RUPERT.
What Staff Correspondent of Victoria
Times    Says.
Among the arrivals south from Prince
Rupert on the streamer Prince Rupert
was Mayor Stork, of the Grand Trunk
Terminal City. He was elected a month
ago over William Manson, M. P. P.
When seen this morning Mr. Stork said;
"I am down on official business for
the purpose of interviewing the government in regard to the work we have
in hand during the present year. We
have a great deal to do, putting in
permanent streets, waterworks, sewers,
telephones and electric light. All these
are to be done as purely municipal undertakings, in this respect the city having decided to commence right.
"The railway building is getting
along well, the principal delay being
in the bridge across the Zanardi rapids,
between Kaien Island and the mainland.
At the present time a ferry is operated
across the rapids and in October next
it is expected that the trains will be running over the first hundred miles of the
railway. This will give a great impetus
to business and allow the company to
continue its work throughout the winter.
It'will also open up a good deal of country
and the result will be that it will increase
the amount of business to the done in
the city.
"Already there is a large amount of
rolling stock on the ground, eight or
ten engines being already in Prince
Rupert. As soon as they get the line
running the machine shops will be in
operation and there will be other work
which  will enliven  the town.
"At the present time the government
is building a wharf at the foot of McBride street. Stewart is bringing us a
good deal of business, and the success
of that town will be a great aid to us.
Everything points to a prosperous time
up there. We have between four and
five thousand people already, and this
number will soon be doubled."
PRINCE RUPERT'S SPEED
Good
for   Twenty-five     Knots
Case of Emergency
The service just instituted by the G.
T. P. marks a new era in the history
of the northland. Travel is now robbed
of all its disadvantages and the effect
is bound to be apparent in a great ac
cession of traffic. The new vessel will
be one of the most popular on the run
She is fast, commodious and beautifully appointed, and on her maiden
voyage north gave evidence of all those
qualities claimed for her by her builders. She is very steady in a sea, free
from vibration and the service throughout excellent.
Choral  Association
Ladies and gentlemen interested in
choral music are invited to communicate
with Mr. B. R. Harrison, Box 34 with
the object of immediately forming a
Choral   Association   in   Prince   Rupert.
The maiden voyage of the Grand
Trunk Pacific company's new steamer,
Prince Rupert, demonstrated the fact
that she can show her heals to any
vessel on the Pacific Coast. She made a
trip from Vancouver to this northern terminus in the record time of a little
over 31 hours, having only one double
and one single boiler working, and
averaging 17 1-2 knots during the voyage. It is estimated that with her
four boilers going at full blast she could
easily make 25 knots.
To give an idea of the Prince Rupert's speed she left Victoria at 10:50
and was docked at the Johnson wharf,
Vancouver, by 3 o'clock, covering the
distance in about four hours and not
pushing herself.
The speed of this magnificent craft
has been kept very much in the dark,
the company featuring safety and comfort.

INDIAN   PARDONED
Was serving Sentence for Complicity
In Murder in Alaska
Tacoma, Wash., June 20.���Slowly dying of consumption, "Juck" Klane, an
Alaska Indian, serving a 22-year term
at McNeil's Island Federal prison for
complicity in the murder, of a newly
married couple at Skagway in 1899, has
been pardoned by President Taft znd
presented with a return ticket to Alaska
He will leave for his old home at once.
Klane for the past eleven years has
been "trusty" boatman on McNeil's
Island.
He was a party to one of the most
sensational murders in Alaskan history. In the spring of 1899 a young
couple were married at Skagway, and
for a honeymoon went on a camping
trip on Lynn canal. A few weeks later
their bodies were found by chance passers
In March, 1900, Jim Hanson, one of
the biggest Indian chiefs in the north
was converted by the Salvation Army
at Haines. He immediately confessed
that he was the leader of the three men
that committed the murder.
Hanson died of tuberculosis in the
penitentary a year after his commitment. Kish Too, the second Indian,
died of the same disease in 1905.

School Board Room
The Prince Rupert School Board has
decided to have an office and board room
in the temporary city hall. The mayor
and aldermen have granted their permission and the board will move in at
once.
Council Meeting
The aldermen will meet tonight when
they wiU take a tumble or two out of the
building by-law. This legal artic.e covers
many pages Of paper and is easily the
largest and most troublesome of all the
by-laws taken up yet. It will mean
several nights work to go over it and it
is a good thing that the cushions for the
chairs were delivered today.

The Methodist church was well filled
last night, the attraction being the
talented Madame Labadie in one of her
clever monologues. She choose from her
repertoire "The Servant in the House"
and in the several dialogues showed great
skill in defining by a gesture of an intonation the individual speaking. The domestic drama centers around the Bishop
of Lancaster and his two brother, one of
whom is a bad egg and the other the
Bishop of Benares. The last named bishop
comes home in disguise and as "the
servant in the house" witnesses many
scenes of rank hypocrisy which he ex
poses and tries to remedy. Its recital
was amusing as well as carrying a
moral.

Furnished Rooms May Be
Rented Profitably.
Just to have "furnished rooms
to rent" is no great feat���or novelty. The number of people whose
homes are in furnished rooms���
"homes within homes"���is very
large.
And among the people who live
in "one room homes are an increasing number who like to have
things a little better than usual.
They like to have a pleasant
room, and they like to have it
fitted up DISTINCTIVELY, with
taste.
They will cheerfully, eagerly,
pay for SOMETHING BETTER
in the way of a furnished room.
Fix yours up to please the particular tenants, and ADVERTISE
ACCORDINGLY, and you'll get
back your investment with profit
in a very brief time.

BUSBY ON TOUR
OF INSPECTION
COLLECTOR OF CUSTOMS ON HIS
WAY TO  STEWART
New Customs Station on the Stick-
ine, that of Glenora, Being Removed to Near the International
Boundary���Other Boundary Offices,
E. S. Busby, collector of customs for
this province, was a passenger from Vancouver on the Princess Beatrice on a
tour of inspection of the various coast
ports. He goes from here to Stewart,
which has been made an outport customs
station and William Miller has been
appointed sub-collector. Miller is also
to be the provincial game warden and
mining recorder, so that men landing
may get their licenses on the dock and
also record their locations. This is a
great convenience to supply which the
federal and provincial governments have
worked together.
From Stewart Mr. Busby goes to the
Stickine. There the out-port station
has been removed from Glenora to a
point near to where the international
boundary crosses, so as to cover more
thoroughly the district to which the
Stickine gives access. Mr. Tervo has
been appointed sub-collector there,
and he also is game warden and mining
recorder.
From there the collector of customs
goes to Skagway and the new boundary
station at Pleasant Camp, where Captain Alcock is the sub-collector. Near
there Captain Walter S. Brown, late of
the United States army, is the manager
of the Brown Alaska Mining company
and is going to begin mining operations
on a large scale there this season. The
provincial government has put in a good
road from these mines to the international
boundary.
After this Mr. Busby will visit Dawson
and Fortymile, calling to inspect the
Whitehorse customs office on his way
back.

Editor of Optimist.���Last night's mail
brought the sad news of the death of
Lieutenant Boyd Alexander, late of
South Rifle Brigade, one of the greatest
explorers the British Empire ever pro-
duced.The tale was told in a brief message
sent by Jose Lopez, Lieut. Alexander's faithful coloured servant to
Mr. Herbert Alexander, the well known
artist and member of the Royal Water-
colour Society, the explorer's brother.
The message received at the British
Port of Maidugwi and telegraphed from
there to England, simply stated that
Jose's master has been murdered on
April 3rd near Abeshr in the Wadai
region of the French Sudan.
What a tragic end to a great career!
Though poor Alexander achieved so
much in the way of exploration and discovery, he will be best remembered
by the public as the leader of the Alexander-Gosling expedition "from the Niger
to the Nile" so fully described in nis
splendid book of that name. It will be
remembered how that expedition which
started in 1904, wound its way in spite
of overwhelming obstacles and trials
through the very heart of unevplored
Africa. How the bold and tireless leader
pressed on in spite of the fact that his
brother Capt. Claud Alexander, of the
Guards, and Cap. Gosling, his only white
companions, both died on that awful
journey.
Months elapsed in the attempt to
cross the swamp lands around Lake Chad.
I have seen photographs, in which his
negro bodyguard were seen struggling
through mud up to their shoulders,
pulling the boats in which his specimens
and instruments were kept. This went
on for days and days under a scorching
sun.
And this toiling party of semi-savages
worked on, out of sheer love and respect
for the solitary white man, pushing his
way through a strange land, whose goal
was the opposite shores of the continent
and to whom the greater privations and
difficulties were as part of the day'swork.
It is well known how he came out into
the Nile nearly three years after he
started, with only a shirt and torn pants,
with no water or no food, yet some miles
in advance of the strongest of his native
followers.
This was a man, and yet a casual
observer meeting him would never have
guessed what power of mind and body,
what vitality, what determination and
lofty ambition lay beneath the quiet
calm interior of this gentle, reserved
Englisman. His character lacked those
traits which force a man into the lime
light of public notice. Though he would
undoubtedly have received the social
honors which come to great men, had
he returned from this last expedition;
he would never have sought them. The
dominant feature of his make up was���
to be, rather than to seem a man.
He came of an old English family
who have a beautiful country seat in
Kent.
Lieut. Alexander had done much else
besides his three years march. At the
age of twenty-five he traversed the
Zambesi territories and in 1900 bore his
part in the fighting that led up to the
relief of Kumasi. He obtained the first
perfect skin of the Okapi, an animal
only recently heard of and which till his
discovery had never been seen by a white
man. He travelled 5,000 miles through
Africa and shot every variety of big
game.
In the dark tropical forest lands which
Stanley found so serious an obstacle,
Alexander wandered as if a native. There
he saw and obtained apecimens of
"huge vampire bats with teeth like
sharks" and "sweet faced phalayers,
with eyes like saucers and as clear as
amber," and "gigantic forest rats with
white bellies, two feet from head to
tail." He was harassed by cannibal tribes
who hunt for white men as we would
deer, but by constant tact and watch-
fullness he came out unscathed.
The heavy expenses of these expeditions were a great drain on his resources.
He would not seek or accept donations
towards these expenses.     Two stories
which will illustrate his general mode of
life I can tell from personal experience.
Before the 1904 expedition he got together a large quantity of goods which
he thought suitable for presents to the
native chiefs whom he would meet on
the journey. He walked quietly into
Harrod's store in London and asked the
price of cotton material. They showed
him various colors and qualities and he
decided on a certain kind. When asked
how much he would like the quiet
answer "Oh! about 20,000 yards" nearly
staggered the attendant, who fled for
help to a superior who in turn went off
for advice. They thought this was some
sort of a practical joke.
I met poor Alexander a few days before he left on this last ill fated trip and
asked him to write his name in my copy
of his book. He said he would rather do
it when he returned as it might then be
of more value then it could be now.
He was of a very retiring desposition.
Though he had been a member of the
Junior Constitutional Club for about
fourteen years he once told me that he
only knew three or four members.
This wretched murder by some treacherous native has cut off in its prime a
great career. Gen. Gordon said that "the
Empire was made by her adventurers."
Alexander will rank with Drake, Frob-
isher,  Livingstone  and  Stanley.
Another name has been added to the
long list of British heros.   A great man
has  passed  away.   Requiescat in   pace

HAZELTON'S   ONE   VAGRANT
Prefers  Labor in Provincial Jail  to
Work outside it
That a man should be adjudged
guilty of vagrancy in such a sparsely
settled community as Hazelton, at the
head of navigation on the Skeena River,
is something of a novelty, but the
vagrant arrived in Vancouver this morning en route to New Westminster.
The man is Hugh Milligan and he would
rather spend six months at work in the
provincial jail than soil his hands with
labor outside the high fence. His
specialty in the vicinity of Hazelton is
declared by the police to have been
the preying upon the miners and men
in the country to look at land.
Provincial Constable Graham, who
brought Milligan south, also had with
hime George Holman, committed for
trial by Judge Young at Hazelton on
a charge of wounding Holman is a
Norwegian and it is charged that while
in a fight with a compatriot he badly
slashed him about the body and arms.

NEW STEAMER PRAISED
Staff   Correspondent   of  Vancouver
World on First Trip.
Quartz Mining at Dawson
Postmaster Hartman, of Dawson,
was in the city last night, shaking hands
with a number of old friends. He is on
his way north and said the Dome
Development company, of which he is
president, was still driving the big
tunnel. They now had a wording tunnel
two thousand deet long, which passed
through several ledges assaying high, and
all these would be crosscut for a couple
of hundred feet before mill operations
were attempted.
Of the steamer Prince Rupert, nothing
more need be said than that she more
than comes up to the detailed description published in these columns some
time ago. In the furnishing and equipment trimness, comfort and elegance
rather than luxuriousness, seems to have
been aimed at. Equipped with wireless
telegraphy, she carried the operator who
joined her before the voyage from the
old country. The Prince Ruplrt is
without doubt one of the best designed
craft on the coast. Her four crank
triples work smoothly and evenly, without vibration.
The fact that the vessel arrived in
Vancouver one day, and took up her
work the next may reasonably be regarded as strong evidence of the statement that, from the point of view of the
engine-room, the Prince Rupert is a
triumph of modern marine engineering.
Chief Engineer Drysdale installed the
engines for the builders, and he is now
running them for company. A shrewd,
kindly, experienced, far-traveled Scot,
he has represented this firm of builders
in all parts of the world. He is a clever
linguist, and he is only less at home in
Grand Opera than in engineering. Head
of a family of engineers, all his praise is
for his staff. 'They are picked men, all
of them." said he, Bill Adams-wise, and
proudly. Mr. Drysdale is confident that
his engines will be driving the Prince
Rupert at a speed of 20 knots before the
week is over.
