EATEST PROBLEM IS LABOR
Chairman of Grand Trunk Pacific Sees In Canada's
Immigrant Restrictions a Menace to Her
International Credit.
The G. T. P. Steamer Prince Rupert
with Mr. Hays and party arrived yesterday afternoon, and Mr. Hays proceeded
to make a tour of the city accompanied
by Mr. G. B. Hunter, chairman of the
Swan Hunter Ship building Co., and
other members of the party interested
in the city of Prince Rupert and its
future. David H. Hays, brother of the
president, acted as guide.
Mr Hays who left for Stewart in the
evening by the Prince Rupert, was reticent regarding the immediate interests
in v ew of which the was travelling but
promised abundance of information before his return, as he will remain for
several days in Prince Rupert.
The Real Rail Problem
Regarding the prospects of the Grand
Trunk Pacific making the steel a continuous line between East and West by
1912, Mr. Hays was quite clear
"It is a question of labor entirely"
he said to the Optimist "That is the
real problem all the time now. Everywhere it is the same, farmers, everybody
complaining of the lack of labor and the
G. T. P. most of all.
"We are doing our utmost" he went on
"and I have no doubt we shall -have a
sufficient force of men shortly to carry
out our object and complete the line
by 1912. The relaxation of the immigration law regarding admission of
railway labor should be a considerable
aid to us.  I really do not know why we
should have this labour problem when
there are so many men going idle in
other places not so far away."
Construction Camp Conditions
"Is it not the case Mr! Hays, that
conditions in the G. T. P. construction
camps are not very inticing to the men
in spite of the good wages offered?"
asked the Optimist
"Ah, well," returned Mr. Hays.
"I have not visited the construction
camps yet. You see I am only just over
here. But when I have been through
them, if such uninviting conditions
exist I shall take steps to improve these
conditions and so secure all the labor we
want.
"Certainly we wish to use as much
white labor as possible but we will take
every kind of laborer we can get, provided he is fit for the work. The problem first and last, as I have indicated,
is a labor problem, but the Grand Trunk
Pacific is going to solve it and have the
line through speedily."
Impressed With the Harbor
Alfred W. Smithers, chairman of the
board of directors of the Grand Trunk
Pacific and affiliated railways, ranks as
one of the leading capitalists and promoters of large interprises of London.
He has held the position of chairman
of the board of directors of the Grand
Trunk for several years and paid a
visit in that capacity to Prince Rupert E
I years  ago.     That  was  before  Prince
Rupert was even christened, as he
observed last night, and when the
population of this now bustling city was
less then two hundred people, principally men.
"Beyond doubt you have the finest
harbor in the world," he remarked,
"and you will have the finest-built
and greatest railway of the world. You
may put that down. There is not a doubt
about it. I looked into your harbor
possibilities when I was last here, but
it impresses me a great deal more on
my present visit. It far exceeds my
anticipations and the expectations we
had based on the surveys.
"We came  over on  the  Laurentine
and   from   Montreal   went   to Samia.
There we took the steamer Harmonie to
Port Arthur and to the new terminal
I at Port William. We journeyed along the
I new line from there to Lake Superior
Junction, which Sir Wilfrid Laurier in
his recent trip named Graham.    From
there we travelled to Winnipeg over the
new transcontinental.     There  we  did
about fourteen hundred miles of the new
| line, which we found in first-class condition for a new road. In fact we averaged
over forty miles an hour on the trip.
"Did you meet at Winnipeg the party
of great English capitalists, in regard
to who3e visit the newspapers predicted a new transcontinental?"

WORSE THAN
EARTHQUAKE
NINETY-FOUR CHARRED   BODIES
IN WALLACE RUINS
Twenty-two Took Refuge in Creek
Bed, But Stream Dried Up and
They Roasted���Horrors Ten Times
Worse    Than    Earthquake
(Special to the Optimist)
Spokane, August 25.���Ninety-four
charred bodies have been recovered
and two 'hundred persons are still missing. This was the record.of the Idaho
forest fires this morning.
The fire fighters are still demoralized,
as several large fires are yet beyond their
control, notwithstanding the rains.
Twenty-two bodies were found on Bitter
creek, south of Every. They had taken
refuge from the flames in the bed of the
stream, but the intense heat dried up
the water and they were burned to
death. Elbert Dow, of Seattle, says he
passed through the fean Francisco earthquake but this horrow is ten times worse.
The expected heavy fall of rain did
not materialize. There were showers
here and there but the fall was not
sufficient to check the fires.
Eugene, Ore., August 25.���The town
of Wendling has been gutted by forest
fires and all but three buildings destroyed
BIG SMOKER TONIGHT
President Hays and Party Will Attend and Some Will Speak
IMMENSE FISH PLANT HERE
Sir George Doughty Plans to Maine Prince Rupert the Grimsby of\
the American Continent, and Probably the Greatest
Fish Mart in the World.
Sir George Doughty is a native of
Lincolnshire, has been alderman and
twice mayor of the town of Grimsby,
which supports a population of eighty
thousand people practically on its fishing
industry. He has for fifteen years represented this constituency in parliament, is a tariff reformer and for some
years has been one of the lending and
ablest lieutenants of Joseph Chamberlain
as a colonial imperialist.
"I am coming to your smoker tomorrow
night," he remarked, " and if you call
upon me to say a few words on colonial
imperialism it will give me pleasure."
But his visit to this coast with the
President Hays party is really to spy
out the land for the establishment of a
fishing industry that would make Prince
Rupert the greatest fishery market on the
American continent, just as his native
town of Grimsby is to theUnitedKingdom
This portion of the intensely interesting
chat cannot be quoted in the words of
Sir George, as this might seem to be
taking advantage of his frankness, and
it is just possible he might be embarrassed by it. It was suggested that the
Optimist was aware his great firm had
for some time been keeping an eye on
this coast and its fishing possibilities,
and the announcement of a decision
having been arrived at would be an
| encouragement   and   an   incentive   to
our people.
"You may go so far as to say that
I am much impressed with the situation for the establishment of a large
fishing industry here,"was his careful
reply, "and upon excellent reports
I have received verified from my own
observations, I shall report favorably
to my partner."
But not the slightest harm can be
done by the publication of the general
remarks of Sir George upon the fishery
possibilities of this northern coast, and,
coming from such an eminent authority,
they are of absorbing interest and real
stimulative value.
At the present time the fishing industry of our coast is confined to salmon.
With Sir George and his lifelong experience in the business this does not
appeal, for the reason that it is merely
seasonal. In the great fishery establishments which have made Grimsby what
it is, salmon is scarcely considered. It
is what Sir George calls the higher class
of fish food they deal in there���the white
fish���the haddock, cod, ling, habibut,
herring and so on. He is looking at this
coast from that point of view.
Therefore, should his great firm take
hold here it would practically mean the
creation of a new industry, and one of
potential influences. It means more,
as Sir George sees it, and in the way of
colonial imperialism, which is the pet
hobby of  this  great  statesman.
In the first place, for such a building
up of the fishing industry on a Mala
commensurate with the fishery resources
of this coast, he thinks it will be necessary to import white fishermen.The
Indian and white fishermen on this coast
now may be all right for salmon, but
salmon come to you and all one has to
do is to take them from the water.
There is no fishing about it. For the
white fish of commerce a great deal of
experience and knowledge is required,
a study of the habits of the various kind
of fish and of their natural habitat.
He would therefore bring here some
Scotch fishermen, some Grimsby fisher-1
men, and some from the codfish banksI
and halibut grounds of the Atlantic
coast. These would form the nucleus
for an immense fishing population.
The establishments at Grimsby maintain
a large number of hands to handle the
fish when caught and the industries
connected with it. Sawmills, barrel
stave factories, barrels and puncheons
and their hoops and so on.   We have
The Publicity Club smoker in the
Empress theatre this evening promises
to be a more important event than its
projectors anticipated. It is given in
honor of President Hays and party but
is altogether informal and it was not intended to call upon any of the guests
to speak. Some of them, however, have
volunteered to do so.
There is a full programme of local
stunts, from boxing to high class music,
both vocal and instrumental, and Gray's
orchestra will play the accompaniments.
No movement has ever met with such
popularity as this smoker and it ought
to be a success. The owners of the theatre
and Mr. McMullin gave the use of the
theatre and lights; Mr. McMullin tendered his services, everybody has been
helping. Mr. Hart, the big furniture
store, lent the glass ware, Mr. Worlock,
of the Victoria Phoenix brewing company,
presented the beer, and Messrs. Stewart
Nichoison & Clarke the cigars; others
have lent necessary articles and been
pushing the sale of tickets and so forth.
So it becomes a citizen smoker instead
of being confined to the club.

May Account For Some of the Destructive Conflagrations Which in
the State of Oregon Alone Destroyed Eight Millions of Property
Portland, Aug., 22.���Forestry service officials are known to have obtained evidence that several disastrous!
fires in the Northwest have been set
by men who later secured employment as fire fighters. It is believed
this became a common practice in
many districts. While acknowledging
they have evidence, the officials here
are trying to implicate several whole
gangs before obtaining any arrests.
Suspicion was aroused when men
who had fought one fire appeared
about another recently discovered in
the same locality. The usual wage
has been 30 cents an hour. The forestry service alone has spent $20,000
this season, the driest known for thirty
years. Three hundred men are also
employed by the Western Forestry
Conservation Association.

VANCOUVER BRANCH LATER
Just a year ago the Sound newspapers who interviewed the officials of the
G. T. P. threw a scare into Prince Rupert by stating that a G. T. P. line from Fort
George would be into Vancouver by the time the main line was completed to Prince
Rupert. This year the tone of the interviews is considerably different. Here is
what the Province quotes from President Hays:
"We will not undertake the building of a branch line into Vancouver���much
as we would like to come south���until we shall have finished the main line. At
present we have in the field two parties engaged in making a reconnaisance, preliminary to determining the most advantageous route. One outfit is working south
from a point in the vicinity of Fort George, the other being engaged in looking over
the country extending north from Lytton at the junction of the Fraser and Thompson
Rivers',' a point on the Canadian Pacific Railway. This leaves the question of the
route into Vaticouver in abeyance. There is no hurry about the matter. We want
ample time to study the whole question of productive territory and low grades."

AN OPTIMIST FROM ABROAD
The interview given the Optimist by Sir George Doughty makes interesting
reading to Prince Rupert. Sir George is an optimist even if he does see a yellow
peril and if his hope and expectations come true Prince Rupert surely has a great
future. As one connected with the great English fisheries he is qualified to make
predictions, for he knows what a great fishing industry means to a country. His
enthusiastic predictions of fishing villages, fishing fleets and naval stations is sweet
music here and we all live in hope that Sir George is a true prophet.

GREATEST PROB-
LEM IS LABOR
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
"I did not and I know nothing of their
plans or the object of the meeting.
We had better see a little thing like this
transcontinental completed before we
talk of building another.      ���
"The greatest difficulty our road has
had to contend with and is still contending with is the scarcity of labor.
You find this, however, all over Canada
and I think that is going to be a serious
obstacle to the development of your
country. It is well to make regulations
to accept only the best immigrants
possible, but in doing so you are apt to
shut good men out of the country.
"You will understand I am not saying
that your government is doing anything
intentionally to stop labor coming in,
but I think that in the desire to keep
out the so-called "undesirables" they
are really keeping out a many really
good men who would make good Canadians, and Canada must have much more
labor if she is to continue her present
course of rapid development.
"I do not say even that the letter of
your laws is keeping people out, but it is
that the impression gets abroad in
Europe that there are restrictions and
difficulties put in the way of immigration, and this accounts for the fact that
there are not many more coming in
than at present.
"We have had this same question in
England, and have had to deal with it.
There we have heard the cry that
"undesirables" must be shut out, but
England has always pursued a liberal
policy in this regard and has practically
let everybody in. This has added to our
burdens sometimes, but I believe we have
received great advantages from it.
"There is no country offering such
inducements as Canada has to offer today, and equally no country can be
developed on such extraordinary unfavorable terms as Canada is now imposing. She is borrowing most of her
money at four per cent and if she does
not obtain labor to develope her resources how is she to meet her indebtedness? Without plenty of labor
the margin of safety on Canada's bonds
will be imperilled, and once that is
questioned serious results are certain to
follow.
"On the other hand, nothing can stop
your march of progress if you get plenty
of labor and at a liberal rate of pay.
We in our construction work are not
the only ones to feel it. All Canada is
short of labor, and some action should be
immediately taken to remedy this state
of  things."
Sir George Doughty would be recognized as an Englishman wherever you
met him from the pictures of John Bull
as a type. Of average height and slightly
aldermanic in form, his blue-grey eyes,
clear complexion, general healthiness and
well groomed appearance suggests the
sort of man who carries a bathtub among
his "luggage", don't you know. But
Sir George is not insular or wrapped
up in silent comtemplation of his own
identity, as are some Englishmen. On
the contrary he is very approachable
and an exceedingly interesting conversationalist when he gets started. Over
his after dinner cigar last night, as he
strolled along the corridors of the Prince
Rupert, he gave his impressions of the
trip to this point, and told what he
thought of the city.
"I have never been so much interested
in any great work," he said,"as I am
in the Grand Trunk Pacific, and the
wonderful development that is taking
place along its route. At Ft. William the
Grand Trunk Pacific has there seven
miles of unequalled water frontage,
the terminus of twelve hundred miles
of the railway running right through
the prairie district. The line is in splendid condition and as comfortable to
travel upon as any of the older railways.
"From Winnipeg down to Edmonton
a distance of 796 miles, it is a very easy
gradient and every few miles there is
already a railway station and a small
town springing up. When these lands
begin to produce wheat there must be
an enormous amount of tr-.fr; ,

Vancouver has made wonderful strides
during the s>x years since I last vi"S
there Its growth has been marvellous.
But I look forward to seeing in the near
future a greater and more rapid develop
ment of Prince Rupert because of the
natural advantages of your position
The enterprise, business ability an(|
acumen of the officials of the Grand
Trunk Pacific, whose guest [ am, cannot
be surpassed by any set of officials in
the world."
IMMENSE FISH
PLANT HERE
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
abundance of lumber here excellent for
the purpose and all that is needed is tbe
skilled labor and labor generally to work
it up.
Herring and many other fish are
migratory, travelling in shoals up and
down the coast. First they would be at
a far point north, say, and then at the
next point south and so on. They might
be taken at all points and fishing villages
would thus spring up all along the coast.
But they must he handled right here in
Prince Rupert, says Sir George, because
of its superior shipping facilities. Prince
Rupert would have a vast market by
rail and the markets of the world by
water.
And he will report favorably on Prince
Rupert as the site for this large industry.
Then comes the imperial point .mis
scheme. Sir George sees that in ate
time this coast must have to face tke
'yellow peril." We are on friendly term
with Japan and China at the present
but who knows how long this is to last.
The only way to maintain these friendly
relations is to be strong in defence. It
will be absolutely necessary, in the
opinion of Sir George, for Canada and
Great Britain jointly to maintain a very
large war fleet on this coast. To do this
it follows that it must have on the coast
a strong naval reserve. This can only
be recruited advantageously from the
fishing population. So that, by encouraging the development of the fishin!
industry on this coast, Canada and Great
Britain will be taking one of ihe most important steps for imperial defence,

SHOULD CITY OWN
ELECTRIC LIGHT?
THE   QUESTION   DISCUSSED   IN
COUNCIL
Members  Hold  Various Views But
Decide   to   Defer   Discussion Till
Private   Firm's   Propositions Are
Seen Tonight.
The question of the city's electric
lighting came up again last night before
the City Council and opinions were
rather divided on the merits of the
several schemes proposed. The discussion was thorough and though opinions were firmly put forward the
members were all through on the best
of terms.
The Temporary Schem
Alderman Lynch spoke in favor of
the Sash and Door Factory scheme as
a good temporary expedient likely to
serve the city's needs now and for the
immediate future. He was supported by
Aid. Mclntyre who was anxious that
the temporary scheme should be gone
on with, and without more discussion
than was absolutely necessary. Aid.
Lynch suggested the purchase of a
boiler and dynamo, second hand if
good ones could be got, and ensure
sufficient equipment at the Sash and
Door Factory and Aid. Barrow recommended that a spare boiler should
be acquired also if possible in case
of emergencies.
Cloya  Power   Scheme
The City Clerk read the City Engineer's favorable report on the Cloya
Water Power Scheme, and a letter from
Mr. W. A. Williams who stated that he
had applied for power from the lakes and
duly advertised the fact.
Aid. Lynch mentioned that at the
time the City Engineer examined the
Cloya lakes the water was low yet he
could report 1000 H.P. in sight. Aid.
Lynch thought the lake scheme one of
the best and cheapest the city could
consider for the near future.
Mayor Stork who thought exceedingly
well of the Cloya scheme told how on
behalf of the city he had arranged for
the power to be quietly staked as a
Government Reserve existed on the
Tsimpsean Penninsula and he did not
want the fact of the city's staking to
become known all at once.
The Mayor said that he did not care
for negotiations with outside firms regarding the city's lighting and was not
disposed to grant to any firm privileges
which might prove the thin end of an
uncomfortable wedge later on.
"Although the Sash and Door Factory Scheme may prove a little expensive," he said, "I am in favor of sending
Mr. Davis or his engineer to Vancouver
to negotiate the purchase of a dynamo,
etc., secondhand.'"
Varied Views
Considerable discussion then ensued.
Aid. Barron expressed doubts regarding
the Cloya power and Aid. Naden thought
it advisable to wait until tonight to hear
the schemes proposed by Mr. Brutinel
and Mr. Durant. He cited the experience
of New Wetsminster in the matter of a
city lighting plant.
Aid. Hilditch spoke in favor of the
temporary scheme and strongly favored
municipal ownership in preference to any
outside supply*
Aid  Patullo desired that a dear issue
be given the Council before a vote was
aken     "Don't let us throw  all the
responsibility on the Mayor," he said.
The citizens present applauded Aid.
Lynch when he said decisively, "Let us
get things decided without worrying too
much over preliminary deta.ls. When
do my own business I make a broad
general estimate of cost and difficulty,
then I go right ahead and generally
succeed in getting it done."
Mayor Stork proposed that the matter
should stand over until tonight's meeting
when the Council would have an opportunity of considering Mr. Brufnell.
and Mr. Durant's propositions*
I am in favor of the city's going in
for the temporary scheme, said the Mayor, but I should like to see these other
schemes. One thing should be remembered, that is that if the temporary
scheme looks getting too costly it can
always be dropped at once.
Aid. Mclntyre suggested that the
arguments put forward by representatives of private firms might confuse the
Council and leave them no wiser, and
Aid. Patullo proposed that the Electric
Light and Telephone Committee should
recommend a scheme on which the
Council could vote.
Mayor Stork expressed his approval
of Aid. Patullo's proposal and it was
decided to adjourn the further discussion
of the lighting question until tonight's
meeting.

Prof. Kaufman was host at a most
enjoyable affair last evening. All the
children who took part in the singing at
the Laurier celebration, and who did so
remarkably well, were gathered together
in the old school building last night and
treated to ice cream and cake spent a
pleasant evening watching the moving
pictures. The children sang The Maple
Leaf for the benefit of the rest of the
audience and their efforts were greatly
appreciated. Prof. Kaufman deserves
great credit for the interest he takes in
the children and for the very successful
performance of the youngsters on Monday
afternoon, and especially when it is
remembered that many of the leading
citizens took no interest in the training
of the children and did not even send
them to practice. In his efforts Prof.
Kaufman was ably assisted by M McD.
Hunter, principle of the school and he
is also deserving of credit. Such training
and performances will create a very
patriotic feeling in the rising generatioa
and will assist in making a better class
of citizens.
Frequency of Mortgage Bond*
A London cable message states that
there has been some criticism recently
regarding the frequency of issues of
Grand Trunk Railway first mortgage
guaranteed bonds and other deprecatory
references to that security. It is pointed
out that these do not affect the intrinsic
value of the bonds, which are one of
the cheapest gilt-edged investments on
the market. Still, the fact remains that
the bowrowing has been heavy.���Monetary Times.

DRY DOCK FOR
PRINCE RUPERT
SHIP BUILDER SAYS IT WILL BE
NEEDED  SURE
Mr. G. B. Hunter, Chairman of the
Swan Ship Building Co., Who
Were Builders of Mauretania and
Will Build Vancouver's New Dock
Gives His Ideas of Prince Rupert.
Mr. G. B. Hunter chairman of the
ship building firm of Swan, Hunter,
Wugham, Richardson Ltd., New-
Castle-on-Tyne, England, who were th.
builders of the liner Mauretania and who
have just secured the contract for the
$2,000,000 floating dry dock to be installed at Vancouver, was with President
Hays yesterday on a first visit to Prince
Rupert.
Asked by the Optimist what he thought
of the city, Mr. Hunter said with emphasis:
"I am still almost too amazed at its
progress and prospects to say all I think
about it. It is a beautiful situation and
a beautiful city, and its prospects are
marvellous.
Harbor is Superb
Mr. Hunter pronounced the harbor
superb.
"Here," he said"you can accommodate
with ease liners as large as the Mauretania
or larger. You can handle at present
everything afloat on the Pacific with
safety and keep pace with the development of this coasts mercantile marine
year by year.
"And Prince Rupert will be a vast
attraction for tourist traffic as well
as trade" added Mr. Hunter. "The sail
up to the city is as perfect as the city's
situation. It reminds me of the Norway
Fjords and the west of Scotland though
it is infinitely more extensive and impressive.
Dry Dock For Rupert
Regarding the dry dock contract
which his firm has secured for Vancouver
Mr. Hunter spoke with assurance on
the subject of a similar dock in the future
for Prince Rupert.
"There is no doubt" he said that you
can accommodate one here in the future,
and that there will be a need for it I
am persuaded. Why you are 500 miles
from Vancouver, and likely to have
more shipping shortly than that city.
"There, will be need for repairs
and laying up of steamers for examination continually and there is no fear
that Vancouver's dock will cut one out
at Prince Rupert. The vessels needing
dock service with patronize the dock
right at hand.
"We   are   considering   two   methods
now, of transporting Vancouver's new
dry dock to its position from the Tyne.
One is to bring it out in sections, the
other to tow it round complete. We
have been successful with the latter

RUN ON HERO FUND
COAL   NOTICE
French Boys Making a Business of
Rescuing   Drowning
Paris, August 20.���A run on the
Carnegie Hero Fund came to an end
here to-day, through the watchfulness
of the Paris police. For days the newspapers have been filled with acts of
bravery by boys of from 12 to 16 years
of age. Daily two or three rescues
have been made from the river and the
canals by mere tots.
To-day it was discovered that there
existed a band of small boys who were
in the habit of drawing lots to see which
should fall into the water and which
effect the "rescue." Together with the
dripping lad the "hero" would hurry
to the nearest police station, and claim
the reward given the rescuer of a drowning person, after which the boys would
sell the story to one of the newspapers
and divide the proceeds.

To Save City's Time
A letter from Mr. E. Lowe, Manager
of the Telephone Co., was read to the
city council last night by the city clerk.
Mr. Lowe pointed out that the city's
time was being wasted over the signing
of requisitions which he as manager of
the company might be entitled to sign
to save time. He further recommended
that with the same object the system
of payment of employees should be
looked into and accelerated as under the
present system he anticipated difficulty
in maintaining a full strength staff.
