RINCE RUPERT TO HAVE FAIR
ayor Requested to Call a
Public Meeting.
ecting is Necessary to Incorporation
of Fair Association���Exhibit to Be
Sent to Vancouver Exhibition Before Being Shown Here.
Chairman Dawson, of the fair com-
ttee of the board of trade, reported
the board at its general meeting last
;ht what had been done in the matter.
>m the correspondence with those
ected on the general committee from
tside the city September 20 seemed to
the average choice for the date of
lding the fair. The committee had
wed out that the expenses of the
eena District Agricultural and In-
strial Exposition would be between
��D; and $5000.  This had been arrived
iy the following estimates:
Frizes $2000, printing and advertising
50, band etc $250, hire of secretary
two months $300, other expenses
out $500. To meet this there was $250
by the city council, and Mr.
anson had said he did not think the
nt from the provincial government
be over that sum. The Grand
link Pacific had been written to but
ire had scarcely been time for a reply.
they really had only $560 in  sight,
against an outlay of say $4600. He did
not know where they could get the rest
of the money. Had licenses been granted
it would have been easy to raise a liberal
sum from those licensed, but that was
off and business in the city was not any
too good just at present, though that,
of course, was only temporary. They
were certain of getting a good exhibit,
but how could they raise the money.
President Morris said they had tried
to get up a fair last year and abandoned
it, and it would not do for them to
abandon this one. As to the small
amount from the city council it must be
remembered that the city had' no revenue at the present time, and therefore
much could not be expected from it.
Mr. Morrison said if they were to
have an exhibition it would be necessary
to hold a public meeting for the purpose
of organizing and incorporating.
Mr. Lawson remarked that it would
cost about $260 for incorporation.
Mr. Tite said it would be a mistake
to abandon the project right now. They
might reduce the awards and in other
ways manage to get up something of a
fair so that they could be organized for
a really first class affair next and succeeding years.
Secretary Stephens explained what
course should be followed for the incorporation of an association of citizens

JAIL MATTER
IS DISCUSSED
)ARD OF TRADE HAS APPOINT-
ED SPECIAL COMMITTEE
hy Prince Rupert Has to Scurry a
Service Not Yet Discovered, but
Board Will Make Further Strenuous; Efforts.
The Board of Trade, at its general
sting last night, took up the question
the very inadequate mail service
d discussed it at great length, coming
the decision to telegraph postmaster
wal on the subject and also to appoint
���ommittee which, working in harmony
f the city council, might pbssibly
W the postmaster to remedy existing
nditions.
Salary Stuphens first reported that

MORE TENDERS
CALLED FOR
SECTION NINE IS PLEADING FOR
A   WATER   SERVICE
Finance Committee to Report on a
Fiscal Agent to Handle City Debentures���No Medical Health Officer
Appointed,���Ballot a Tie Twice.
While His Worship the mayor was
looking after Col. W. M. Davis, the new
city engineer, the city clerk called the
council meeting to order last night and
Aid. Mobley was elected to the chair.
A communication was received from
the Union Transfer Co asking to be
allowed to tender on the hauling of the
lumber for the city.
Aid. Lynch said he though the city
had better call for tenders for the hauling of the lumber. He moved in that
direction, seconded by Aid." Mclntyre,
and the motion carried.
Section Nine Water
Aid. Hilditch inquired of the water
committee if they had any immediate
intention of supplying water for the
people on Ninth avenue in section 5.
He said it was a shame to ask those
people to pack the water such a long
distance as is now necessary. It is too
far for the women to pack it and as a
result water is being used from dirty
pools that are not fit for a dog to drink
out of. He only aslted for a temporary
pipe with a stand pipe which they can use
for a month or two.
Aid. Mobley, as chairman of the Fire
and Water committee, said that the
engineer had reported on the cost of the
work and it was found too great and the
council turned it down.
The city clerk read the report of the
engineer which placed the cost of the work
at $1800.
The water committee was then asked
to take the matter up and try and get
a temporary service down to them.
Aid. Pattullo said that one of the first
things that has to be settled at once is
how are the debentures to be handled
and what bank will be used. This ought
to be decided at once.
Aid. Lynch thought that the finance
committee should take this matter up
and bring in a concrete report immediately.
The term "concrete report immediately" is a favorite one of Aid. Pattullo's in referring to the streets and
property committee, and when the chairman of the latter committee threw it
back to the finance committee it caused
a general laugh.
At the request of Aid. Smith, Aid.
Lynch said that his motion intended
that the finance committee should recommend the appointment of a fiscal
agent to handle the city's debentures.
The committee might also decide whether
it would be better for the city go into
the open market itself.
Three applications were received for
the position of medical health officer
for the city as follows:- Dr. J. P. Cade,
Dr. J. O. Reddy, Dr. C. A. Eggert.
The council, balloted for the officer
to fill the petition and after two votes
had been taken and resulted in a tie the
voting was left over until Tuesday night.
Three tenders were received for the
city advertising from the Optimist,
Empire   and  Journal.
On motion of Aid. Lynch and Aid.
Naden the tender was awarded to the
lowest tenderer. Thia eontract terminates at the end of the year.
ENGINEER AND STREET WORK
Grading, in His Opinion, the
Most Pressing Work.
Will First Get the Street Grading
Under Way and Will Then Take up
the Heavier Questions of Water
Works and Sewers.
Col. W. M. Davis arrived on the
Princess Royal last night to assume his
duties as the first permanent engineer
for Prince Rupert. He was met at the
boat by the mayor who later introduced
him to the council, which was in session,
and then the mayor and the engineer
took a stroll around the business part
of the town.
When seen by the Optimist this
morning^ Col. Davis was just returning
from his room at the G. T. P. Annex.
He said he was feeling first rate and ready
to go to work as soon as he got his trunks
up from the wharf. "Of course," he
said, "it will require a little time for
me to go thoroughly into the engineering
affairs before I express any opinions or
make any recommendations. I am
anxious however to get something underway, such as street grading, that does
not require much consideration. The
question of the water works and se,wer
systems will require thorough investigar
tion before I can do very much with
them. They are big and important and
can only be done once, hence the necessity
that they be done right."
Asked his impression of the town as
he came in on the boat, Mr. Davis said
that from what he had been told by
people in the east and by people on the
way up he had expected to find it much
rougher and with steeper grades. The
grades here are nothing to worry about-
Back in the east there are a great many
streets with even steeper grades than
there are here now.
Asked when he would bring his family
out Mr. Davis said he could not tell at
present. Speaking of his trip out he said
he enjoyed it very much although the
journey across the prairies was very
tiresome. The boat trip from Vancouver
up he thoroughly enjoyed. ThiB is his
first visit to the Pacific Coast although
he has been in the North West before.
"Do you know," he said, "at the first of
the year I decided to accept the very
first opportunity to move to the Pacific
coast and I started at once to prepare
my work with that end in view. That
fact assisted very materially in allowing
me to get away as quickly as I did.",*
Col. Davis iv very optimistic and he
looks for big things here in the immediate future. He wants to get to
work and to keep his department at the
head of the procession. He will then feel
satisfied.
COMOX PIGS
AT THE BAT
FIVE STRUCK OUT IN THE FIRST
INNINGS BY THE POLICE.
DISASTER AT
CAMPBELLTOWN
FIRE LOSS ESTIMATED AT TWO
MILLION DOLLARS
Three Have Jumped the Town and
One Was Fined $700���Warrants
Issued for Arrest of all of Them���
Police Circles Were Lively Today.
The blind pigs on Comox avenue and
vicinity are at the bat this week. The
police have taken the field and in the
first inning five were caught out and because the rooters would not stand for
it reference was made to the referee and
his book of laws. The following players
were summoned before the magistrate
this morning:-
Fred Clancy, Avenue Hotel, corner
Eighth and Fulton, Chas. Horn, John
Griffith of Comox avenue, Jerry Murphy
Alaska Dance Hall, Delmonte Zerelli,
Alaska Hotel.I. B. Agers, Alaska Dance
Hall.
Three of the man are supposed to
have quit the game and gone south on
the Seattle boat last night, and when
court was called this morning none of the
rooters were present. The magistrate
then issued bench warrants for Jerry
Murphy, John Horn and Herb. Clancy.
John Griffith, Miller's bartender, who
was up yesterday, did not appear today.
His trial was proceeded with and he
was fined $700 and a warrant was
issued for his arrest. If the other men
are caught, they will get a like dose.
If they stay away from town they can
keep their money.
Telephone Petitions
The city clerk has been collecting
the petitions for the telephone today.
They have been pretty generally signed
and he expressed the opinion that they
were sufficiently signed. There is known
to be over a million dollars assessment
represented without going over the list.
Everything in the Shape of Buildings Destroyed With Exception of
Seven Houses on Outskirts���Five
Thousand Homeless.
Special to The Optimist
St. John, N.B., July 12-A tremendous disaster has befallen Campbell-
town, on the Intercolonial railway, the
details of which are not yet available,
as all the wires are down. The loss is
estimated at two million dollars and
nearly Ave thousand are homeless,
Many have undoubtedly been injured
in the Are but only one death has been
reported so far, that of a child named
Doyle, which was suffocated.
The fire has devastated the whole
city Five sawmills, all the woodworking factories, the foundries and
other industries are all lying in heaps
of ruins.
There were six churches and all have
been burned. Six fairly large hotels
and several smaller ones and boarding
houses were all wrecked. The schools
are gone, and great damage done to
railway property.
There are no homes left for the
people, every residence and every shelter of any kind has been destroyed
with the exception of seven houses on
the outskirts.
Scarcely anything appreciable was
saved from the burning stores, so that
the homeless are temporarily deprived
of food also.
The militia department here has been
asked to send tents and blankets down
at once, and also provisions. Funds
are being raised to assist the victims of
the fire.
The telegraph offices were burned out
and no details can be obtained for some
hours yet.
PUBLICITY CLUB
HIGHLY PRAISED
BOARD OF TRADE ASSUMES ONE
HALF OF DEFICIT.
Scott Raises Tempest in Friendly
Teapot by Calling for a Quorum���
Dance to be Given by Club is
Warmly Commended.
The dance given by the Publicity club
to the visitors on the first trip of the
steamer Prince Rupert came up for
discussion at the meeting of the board
of trade last night, on a letter ffrom
Secretary Coyney of the club suggesting
that the board contribute toward a
deficiency incurred by the club. President Morris in introducing the subject
said a similar letter had been sent to the
city council and the council found itself
unable to" comply with the request for
the reason that at the present time it
had very little revenue. He thought,
however, the board should certainly
give the request favorable consideration,
as the club had saved the board a lot
of work it would have been necessary
for it to do had the club not done it for
them. He thought they should look at
it in that way and pay at least a part of
the deficit.
Mr. Nickerson said a number of press
representatives come up on the steamer
and it would not have looked very well
had there been no reception whatever,
and there would have been none but for
the efforts of the Publicity Club to get
up such a welcome as would make a
favorable impression on the visitors.
The club had certainly been successful
in this regard if not financially, and
should be helped out.
The president observed that as they
must have noticed from outside newspapers the dance and welcome provided
by the club certainly did Prince Rupert
no harm, and the board was entitled to

SIR WILFRID AT
FORT WILLIAM
SPLENDID ORATION TO A MOST
ENTHUSIASTIC CROWD
Gives Reascr for Hit Western Trip
a Desire to Become Acquainted
With New Country so Magically
Growing Up in the West.
(Special to the Optimist)
Fort William, July 11.���Sir Wilfrid
Laurier made his appearance today
before a crowded arena and made a
speech of the splendid patriotism of
which elicited round after of applause.
He declared that an election was not
near at hand, and that he found the
country contented under the present
government.
In the course of his great speech he
said that Canada owed much to the late
king but that the present monarch was
as strong as his father. He stated that
the reason for his trip was not a political one, but for the purpose of becoming
acquainted with the new country that
was magically growing up.    ���
AS  PLAIN  AS  GLASS.
Senator Beverley Seeking to Delude
A Trusting People
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, July 11.���Senator Beverley
arrived here last night, straight from a
conference held at the president's summer home between Taft, Roosevelt and
himself. In the course of an interview
he significantly declared that President
Taft was stfll directing the Republican
campaign, and that Col. Roosevelt had
only promised to make a few sppeches���
a statement which is interpreted as
meaning that Roosevelt will be behind
the  whole  management of  the  fight.

The Subjective Mood

And all the mice that ever were born

were   gathered   on   one  big   peal,
And if that mouse ran after that lady
���would that lady squeal?
���New York Evening Sun.
It is almost amusing to hear the cry
that we are too extravagant when
penury is the word to describe the condition  of  a  majority  of  the  people.

DO GOVERNMENTS MAKE PROSPERITY?
The interior of the Skeena District does not often see a cabinet minister and
a member of the Legislature, but when it does the inhabitants believe in hospitality
and remarks of appreciation. Here is what the Hazelton paper has to say about! two
recent visitors:
"In their first appearence before a Hazelton audience Hon. Thomas Taylor
and William Manson made a decided hit. Neither one is an orator; but they, are
both earnest, capable men, doing their parts in giving the province a business
administration; the best administration the province has ever had, of which present
prosperity is a sufficient witness. Both were enthusiastically applauded and will be
welcomed here just as often as they choose to come."
The Herald's comment brings up the old question of whether Governments
are responsible for the crops. If it is so, then Prince Rupert city council ought to
start something here.
MAIL MATTER
I IS DISCUSSED
I.
CONTINUED from page 1
B possible that Ottawa had not yet of-
*; fically learned of the steamer Prince
? Rupert, as all such matters had to be
5 handled in a certain routine way. He
j moved that the secretary be instructed
j to write the postmaster- general telling
L what the trouble was and asking why
'-t mail was not carried on the steamer
i Prince   Rupert.
The president said the matter of mail
was an important factor in the business
progression of the town, and to get no
*i mail   from   Monday   night   to   Friday
j�� night���practically   Saturday   morning,
was bery hard on business men.  A midweek mail would solve the difficulty.
The   motion   carried   and   the   pre-
��� sident then called the attention of the
* board to affairs in the local post office.
Fe though Prince Rupert was getting
out of the fourth or third class post
�� office line and nearer first class and that
f improvements should at once be made
t to place it in that class. It might be the
| department was waiting for the new
| post office to be built, but this might
| take a number of years.
;." Mr. Dawson suggested the appoint-
F. ment of a committee to wait upon the
ff postmaster and ascertain what the trouble
!?was.
i�� The president pointed out that there
t- was no intention of criticizing the post-
g master. That official was doing exceed-
gingly well; he did not think anybody
9 could do better under the circumstances,
r and a committee such as proposed
might assist him in improving the service
* One member said the post office was
��� run like one in a country village that
$ was an adjunct to a store.   The post"
; master was only allowed so much and in
| consequence had to hire cheap men and
[ not enough of them to do the work.
On motion of Mr. Morrison, seconded
| by Mr, Currie, a committee was appoint-
[ ed to confer and advise with the post-
I master,   and   the   president   appointed
j Messrs. Prudhomme, Currie and Mor-
4 rison as such committee.
a    The discussion closed with the hope
i'-tiUt the matter would be thoroughly
sifted in short order, as we should very
soon   have   several   cabinet   ministers
visiting  Prince  Rupert  and,  generally
..ajpeaking,   the   service   was   "rotten"
<$nd facts, of its rotteness    should be
���trongly demonstrated to the visitors.
apart from the board of trade, and thr
association could be made, as similae
institutions were, self-supporting. The
board, of course, would assist it forward
in every way, as it was doing now.
Mr. Morrison pointed out that there
would be no trouble in obtaining a place
in which to hold the fair, and other members again began to grow enthusiastically in favor of going on although at
rthe start they had judged from the Ye-
port of the committee that it could
not be carried out. The discussion ended
with die appointment of a committee
phens and Dawson, to call upon the
consisting of Messrs. Prudhomme, Ste-
mayor and ask him to call a public
meeting on Friday evening.
An invitation from the Vancouver
exhibition was next considered. It invited Prince Rupert to send an exhibit
and sdid no charge would be attached
to it. It was decided that the invitation
be accepted and that an exhibit be collected and sent to Vancouver, after which
it could be exhibited at the Prince
Rupert fair.

To Advertise Prince Rupert

from Struther Bunch, assistant city
editor of the Seattle Times, requesting
that photographs of the city be sent for

natter of precedent. ���;   llT?0
Mr. Scott was opposed to the club
Hoing things and then asking the board
L foot the bill. Why had the club not
Consulted with the board first.
Mr. Prudhomme, speaking for himself
Ld not as a member of the Publicity
bub, said the movement to entertain
Ihe visitors might properly be called
i citizens movement rather than that of
Ihe club, but it could not go along without some organization assuming the
���esponsibility. It was then the club
topped in. At the last minute it was
een that nothing was being done toward
reception to the first Grand Trunk
'acific steamer and the visitors coming
in her, and the Publicity Club made it
ts business and certainly carried it out
n great style. There was no time to con-
er with the board of trade in the matter,
Jnder these circumstances he thought
ivery citizen was called upon to stand
s share of the expense, and he hoped the'
joard would see it in that way.
Mr. Christiansen said it was partly
hrough him the club did not approach
he board On the subject. The impression
m that something should be done to
ntertain the Grand Trunk officials
if the new ship and the visitors and the
ilube went ahead and did it. The club
���xpected to meet all the expenditure out
if the sale of tickets but this was not
lone.
Other members spoke in a similar
train and the motiort of Mt, Prudhomme

lamely $81, was about being put when'
Mr. Scott jumped up and claimed there

testily exclaimed: "Then let us call the
whole thing off. If thereris nijr quorum"
et us go home. You cannot legally dp
��ne part of the business and not the
other, I move we adjourn."
Secretary Stephens jokingly declared
Mr. Law out of order and the' motion
passed unanimously with the exception
of the one dissenting voice of Mr. Scott,
rto acquiesced in the decision with
the proviso that this should be the last
time the club did any such thing without
first consulting the board.

Based on Necessary Growth of Activities of Board and Demands For
Increase in Publicity.���Proposition
Placed on File.
The discussion that took place at the
last general meeting of the Publicity
Club relative to the absorption of the
club by the board and its work continued
by a committee of the board, and as to
tlie advisability of the two organizations remaining distinct but employing
the same secretary, came before the
general meeting of the board of trade
.last night upon a letter from Secretary
Coyriey, of the Publicity club. Mr.
Coyney wrote that as there had been a
suggestion made that the board employ
an .expert in publicity, and as the work
of the board of trade would necessarily
grow in other directions, he offered his
services to the board in conjunction
with his present employment as secretary of the Publicity Club.
', Secretary Stephens again stated what
[4&e had. stated. at the Publicity Club,
that he would heartily support any movement that was meant for progress, and
would willingly resign if the board felt
the time had come for a permanent
secretary) as he was heartily in favor
of anything that was calculated to be of
benefit to Prince Rupert generally.
Chairman Morris 'Said the situation
at the present time in this discussion
was that there was nothing before the
board from the Poublicity Club on the
subject. He was sure their present
secretary was giving good service and
with their new quarters no doubt they
were moving along all right. He would
recommend, however, that Mr. Coyney's
letter be placed on file, so that when the
time came the board could go further
into ttiie subject. A motion was carried
to that effect.

The commencement of the street work
in section one is a little nearer. The
streets committee are practically through
with the Ipreliminaries. It only remains
for the engineer to pass upon the committees report and for the council to
pass that.
Streets Committee
The streets, works and property committee's report was received as follows :
Your committee beg to report that in
looking into the matter of grading
section one, we find it advisable to proceed with this improvement as soon as
possible. The cost of having the work
done in the immediate future will be
much less than it will be if prolonged
to some later date. The entire district
is of sufficient value to justify the
necessary expenditure.
We would recommend that in ad
dition to the work of grading the streets
that has been considered in the engineer's
report that the council also include in
this sork of local improvement the
grading of Grenville Court for its entire
length, and Biggar Place from its intersection with Third avenue to the Eastern
corner of lot 1, block 30, and to the
Western corner of lot 55, block 39. We
believe that the council should provide
funds necessary to defray the cost of
this work by -the issue and sale of local
improvement debentures which should
mature in twenty years.
We recommend that one half of the
cost of the work be assess and served
upon all lots or Iands fronting or abutting
on any street in section one, except lot 1
and lots 3 to 20, inclusive in block 15,
and that the proportion of said one half
of the cost of this improvement which
shall be assessed and levied upon each
lot or parcel of land shall be determined
by the proportion that the mutiple of the
frontage of said lot or parcel of land and
the width of the street shall bear to
all such mutiples in the district assessed for this improvement.
Provided that the width of the street
in Biggar Place shall be calculated as
72 feet, and that the width of any other
street or place, shall be calculated not
more than 94 feet.  That in case of any
corner lot abutting on two streets, that
they shall only be assessed for one half
of their frontage on each street. And
that thej$ remaining 60 per cent, of
the cost of such local improvement shall
be assessed on all the lots and parcels
of land in district improved except such
portions of block 15 as have been heretofore exempted in the proportion to
their relative assessed value. We estimate the cost of this improvement at
$340,000.
In reference to the above report
Aid. Pattullo thought that before the
report was adopted the city engineer
should investigate and "make a report
dealing with the dost and assessment.
There was considerable discussion
on this point. Acting Mayor Mobley
thought the report should be adopted
and then the engineer could prepare his
report to be submitted later.
Aid. Pattullo moved that the city
engineer be asked to investigate and report on the grading of section 1 as soon
as possible. Aid. Smith seconded the
motion and it carried.

British Columbia interests which
have several companies awaiting flotation, are making elaborate efforts in the
press. The London Times published
recently a whole page of illustrated
matter, advertising generally the lumber wealth of the province at a cost of
$900. The Daily Mail and Observer had
similar pages costing $1500 and $750 respectively.
To further the campaign in progress,
through the agency of the Harmsworth
Journals, in addition to special advertisements an expert is being sent to
British Columbia at the promoter's expense. The congested condition of the
market for semi-speculative Canadian
securities still continues.

Real Estate is the first essential of his existence. To be born landless is to be
born with your life mortgaged. Prince Rupert has the Canadian Nation behind
it and when the Dominion slumps she will slump, but not before.
The price of the same value in Real Estate is double what it was ten years
ago because the world's stock of gold, in which value is measured has doubled.
In ten years Rupert Realty will have increased at least five times in value, and
the price of that value will be double that ten times to-day's price. In two
months the City Council will be paying out $2,000 a month in wages, then the
demand for the very limited supply of cheap lots will raise them to dear lots.
Use foresight.
I specialize in cheap lots on easy terms. $30 cash and $15 a month buys
beautifully situated level lots at $150, Others $200 to$300. Grand double corner
on Hays' Creek, $525, Block 1, Sec. 8. Double corner next block to Seal Cove

THOSE FIGHT PICTURES
Vitograph Trust Will Not Show Them
In Places of Amusement
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, July 11.���The Vitograph
company announces that it will not
display any advertisements of the fight
pictures in any public places and that the
pictures in all probability will not be
shown in any 'places of amusement but
only to clubs and before adults. The
vice-president of the Fight Picture trust
admits that they fear a public exhibition would result in a law preventing
the showing of any fight pictures whatever.
Health of the Pope.
Rome, July 1.���The most alarming
reports were current to-day concerning
the condition of the pope. It is officially stated that his holiness, as a
result- of the severe heat, suffered a
fainting spell, but Dr. Teccati says the
attack was not serious. There is reason to believe the health of the holy
father is so broken he is helpless, and
there is some talk as to his successor.

RECORDER TRANSFERRED
Mir. Sandilands to Move FVom Jedway
to Queen Charlotte City
The office of gold commissioner and
mining recorder, hitherto maintained'
at Jedway, Moresby Island, and of
which Mr. Sandilands is in charge,
has by' recent decision of the government been transferred to Queen Charlotte city. Skidegate district, Graham
Island. Mr. Sandilands will remove
to the latter centre of official action
in the near future.
In order that mining men of the southern island shall not be needlessly inconvenienced, Jedway remains a provincial
police post, and constable Walter Prescott is also commissioned as deputy
mining recorder at this point.
The date for the opening of the gold
commissioner's and mining recorder's
offices at Stewart, which had been set
for the 15th instant, has been postponed until the 1st of August, in consequence of the government agent,
Mr. Conway, being on hoiday terminable at the latter date.
New  Alphabet  for  Japan
In the far east the influence of Rome
has been little felt���that is, the influence
of ancient Rome. There is a desire
among the cultured classes of Japan
to introduce a new alphabet, and to
abandon the difficult and ancient form
of national writing. Many literary men
in Tokyo have formed a society with this
intent. The organ of the society is
known as "The New Japanese School."
and it is proposed to borrow twenty-four
letters of the Roman alphabet, to which
will be joined forty-seven simple signs
and twenty- five accentuated. It is
said that the proposed new system has
been very favorably received both by
the learned and commercial world.
THE  SAVOY  HOTEL
Another New Hotel Opens This Week
With Many Fine Rooms.
The Savoy hotel, at the corner of
Fraser street and Fifth street will open
for roomers this week. The Savoy is
owned by A. J. Prudhomme and will be
one of the most comfortable public houses
in the city at the present time. The hotel
has 28 bed rooms, all well lighted, roomy
and very cosily furnished.
The lower floor is made into two
sections, one for the bar and billard
room and the other for the office and
grill. The two upper floors are all bedrooms, 28 in number, each with hot and
cold running water and handsome
quartered oak furniture. Bath rooms
and lavatories are on both floors. All
the rooms are heated with hot air and
all have rooms closets. Some of the
rooms are en suite.
The kitchen and several more bed
rooms about it are to be added in the
next few weeks, and until these are
completed the house will be used for
roomers only. ;
The appointments throughout the
house are modern and the best, and the
hotel will add considerably to the city's
accomodation for the travelling public.
