Editor Willison and Editor Sir Mackenzie Bowell Show a Contrast of
Mental Mannerisms In Expressing
Admiration   of   Prince   Rupert.
Prince Rupert has been enjoying many
distinguished visitors this fall, and although they have been mostly men of
action and of large affairs their word
will have great weight with the wealthy
leisure class constantly wandering to
the famed places of the earth seeking
distraction in their attractions. From
the high praise given to this city and its
envirous by our visitors this fall, and
the influence any words of their's
cannot fail to exert, it is natural to
confidently expect next year a very large
tourist trade.
Our two last distinguished visitors
John S. Willison, editor of the Toronto
News and Sir Mackenzie Bowell, ex-
premier of Canada and again an editor,
had unfortunately too short a stay here
to thoroughly grasp the situation, for
the reason that it was to them on starting
merely an interesting point that is going
to be the terminus of the great transcontinental railway. That they should
find here already so large and prosperous
a city led both of the gentlemen to express their pleased surprise. But both are
men trained to the rapid assimilation
oi tacts, and of these they gathered as
much as ordinary men would in a month.
The representative of the Optimist
went to interview them on board the
steamer Prince George last night, but
found before the parting handshake that
it was himself who had been interviewed
So keen an interest -did they show and
so adroitly did they use the information
already gathered to draw out more, that
the fact of their being strangers, here for
the first time, became so shadowy that
it was forgotten.
Both are editors and as such trained_
to a fine point in perspicacity and
directness of expression, yet few travelling companions form a greater contrast.
There is as great a difference, probably,
"i their mentality, or rather their mental
operations���for both are deep thinkers
and forceful writers���as appears in their
outward and physical characteristics.
Sir Mackenzie has arrived at the genial,
reminiscent age when the steps of today
are reckoned by the tape measure of
yeiterdaya long gone by; Mr. Willison,
"'though also grey, has the bearing of
an athtletlc in his prime, quick and In-
Wve in glance and speech yet sparing
of the spoken word.
Both referred to the recent visit of
ne premier, the latter, who wrote the
arnous biography of Sir Wilfrid and the
Liberal party putting the direct question
now did our shief impress your people"
""u the  former  casually  remarking-
well, what did you think of Laurier?"
" you atU(Jy these two questions for a
momem you wUi ���. more than gljrface
indications, to use a mining term.
Vou know I always said Laurier
���WW amount to something." Sir
Mackenzie went on. "As a young member

Seward, Alaska, Sept. 13.���Bert Stewart is under arrest here for the killing
of Sam Reinhardt. The two men met in
a roadhouse near here and the trouble
started with Reinhardt attempting to
pick a quarrel with Stewart. After high
words Reinhardt drew his gun and shot
Stewart in the leg. The latter then fired
and killed Reinhard .
WHITE ROCK
IS DESTROYED

No Lives Lost But Several Head of
Stock Perished in Flames.���Pro-

Thousand Dollars.
(Special to the Optimist)
New Westminster, Sept. 13.���The
summer town of White Rock was almost entirely destroyed by bush fires
late last night. Relief trains were sent
out from Ferndale but were stalled by a
bridge that had been burned out. No
lives were lost in the fire so far as known,
but several head of stock were burned to
death.
The line of the Great Northern to
Vancouver is blocked as a result of the
fires.
The property loss in White Rock is
estimated to amount to $30,000.

(CONTINUED ON PAGE 10.;
Aid. Hilditch raised an objecrion at
the city council meeting last night that
the minutes of the impromptu meeting
held on Saturday afternoon, should not
be entered regularly in the minute book
but that the proceedings should be
merely noted as having taken place.
"I do not consider that that meeting
was a meeting of the city council' he
said. The minutes having already been
entered in the book by fhe city clerk
from notes supplied.him by Aid. Naden.
Aid. Hilditch moved that they be struck
out.
Aid. Pattullo suggested thut the record
of proceedings at that meeting be en-
ered merely as those of a conferencen
between members of the city council
who happened to be present, and the
representatives o theB.C.Tie and Timber
Co., the city, however, to be still considered bound to the result of the transactions of the conference as recorded.
The mayor went on to describe his
efforts to assemble the city council
at short notice. He had tried to find
Aid. Hilditch but had not succeeded.
Aid. Pattullo said that he had seen Al.
Hilditch in the distance at the time and
had run after him but had not managed
to round him up. There was, however,
a quorum at the conference.
It was finally decided to make the
entry in the minute book "Void" in
red, and note the proceedings as those
o  an impromptu conference.
The committee appointed by the Board
of Trade to confer with the city council
regarding what is alleged to be too high
an assessment of the railway property,
reported to a general meeting of the
board last night a plan by whiah the
assessment of such property is cut down
from $7,291,600, the sum fixed by the
government assessor, to $1,726,500. All
the members of the committee were
called upon to speak upon the subject,
and by means of maps and blue prints
collected by the committee each reduction and the grounds upon which it
was suggested were explained in detail.
President Morris Baid the special
business before the meeting was to
receive the report, of the committee
appointed at the meeting of the council
of the board to confer with the city in
regard to the assessment of the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway property. The
committee had gone into the matter
thoroughly and was ready to make a
proposal to the city. He would call
upon Mr. Thomas Dunn to explain this
proposition and for Mr. Palmer to assist
him with the maps. Also he would ask
Mr. J. S. Pillsbury, who had been one
of the first engineers employed on the
townsite, to assist.
The business men's meeting in the
city hall, said Mr. Dunn, showed the
sentiment of the people that the assessment of $7,300,000 was simply ridiculous.
Mr. Hays had suggested a committee of
three, with the mayor as ex-officio, to
discuss the matter with an official of the
railway. But the council in its wisdom
did not see fit to do that. They wrote to
Mr. Hays simply stating that they
could not reduce the assessment. Now
that might be good business but he did
not think so. He thought that when Mr.
Hays suggested a committee the council
should have appointed one. There
were a great many things railway corporations wanted, and they often asked
for much more than they expected to
get. If they did not come together there
was no chance of arriving at an understanding. Now this committee of five
has gone carefully and thoroughly into
facts and wp would give you the results.
Mr. Dunn first read the following
schedule of the reductions in the railway
taxation suggested by the committee at
the same time pointing to each assessment on the map and explaining in full
why that particular reduction was
proposed.
Mr. Palmer followed with a brief and
lucid explanation, supplementing that
of Mr. Dunn. J. G. Scott and M. M.
Stephens contented themselves with a
hearty concurrence in the report, as did
William Law. Upon the call of the chair
Mr. Pillsbury also went over a portion
of the blue prints, and in this way every
point involved in the discussion was
carefully explained and made clear.
Mr. Dunn again took up points of
detail and added to them. In regard to
the plot of land Section 2, Block "E," he
said this was a narrow strip only 225
feet wide right along the mountain and
no good to anybody. Yet this had been
assessed at half a million dollars.
"Better send for the assessor," sb-
served .Secretary Stephens.
"He certainly had some queer ideas,"
remarked President Morris.
Mr. Christiansen thought the com-

CITIZENS WANT
PLANKWAYS
BUT  CITY  ENGINEER  MODIFIES
THEIR   PETITIONS
In General Better to Wait For Street
Grad ng Thinks Engineer But Considers Some of the Plankways
Necessary.
GEORGE REID
IS ARRESTED
ALLEGED   WIFE   MURDERER    IS
CAUGHT NEAR  FERNDALE
Admits His identity But Refuses to
Speak of Murder Charge.���Provincial Police Claim That Wrong
Man is Arrested.
(Special to the Optimist)
Bellingham, Sept. 13.���George Reid,
who is wanted for the murder of his wife
at Clayburn, was captured near Ferndale
last night. He was arrested by A. L.
Soper and Fred Clarke. He admitted
his identity but refused to discuss the
murder charge in any way. He is now in
jail at Whatcom and the proceedings
necessary for his extradition to Canada
have already been begun.
Vancouver, Sept. 13.���The provincial
police deny that the man arrested at
Ferndale is the George Reid who is
wanted on a murder charge. They declare it to be a case of mistaken identity.
Oversea Troops For Cornation
London,    Sept.    13.���(Special)���Arrangements are being made to have extra
large contingents of troops from oversea
dominions attend  the coronation next
year.
mittee had gone into the matter very
thoroughly and he was in favor of the
board making a recommendation to the
council in accordance with their report.
Mr. Dunn said the city council wanted
a "concrete" (laughter) proposition and
in this report they would have one.
Some of the estimates might be too high,
others too low, but the council might lay
it before the Grand Trunk people and
see what they had to say ahout it.
"But the city council think it would be
undignified for them to make any suggestion to the Grand Trunk. We will
put this clearly before them and if they
refuse to act we will cal) i public meeting
lo take the mutter up. If this council
refuses to open up negotiations with the
railway and the citizens say such negotiations should be opened up, then we
will take hold of the whole matter and
ask those members of the city council to
resign.
"The railway asks a good deal but the
city also wants a good deal from them.
The Grand Trunk will give us a site for
city hall, park sites and so on, and we
want those. We also want the railway
work to go forward. The dry dock will
take two years to build and look what
the city would get out of that. I know
the machinery is all here for the machine
shops, and that Mr. Mehan has had
orders to store it away. The shops
would employ four hundred men or
more, and how much better to have those
men living right in the city than to have
the shops six miles out of town."
The president summed up the advantages to the city of taking early
action in the matter and on the motion
of C. D. Newton, seconded by O. Besner,
a resolution was passed unanimously
adopting the report and that the committee present it to the council.
Several petitions for local improvements came before the city council last
night in the form of the city engineer's
repor   on them.
There was one for a plank roadway on
Four h avenue between McBride street
and Hays Cove Circle. The city engineer suggested in regard to this that
th petition should be amended o cover
either rough grading of the street, or
plank oadway from McBride to Young
street only as it was not possible to
ob ain a passable grade there without
considerable grading.
The plank road petitioned for on
Seventh street, between First and .Second
avenues the city engineer considered
I should wait until the street grading there
I is finished, and recommendtd that the
i completion of this grading should be
j provided for in the next contract let for
I Section one. '--���..-..
!    On account of the roughness of the
I ground the city engineer thought that
j the cost of constructing a plank road-
! way as petitioned for on Park avenue
! and Eleventh s reet, would be very high.
' The    umber of houses was also small.
But the grading of this street had been
provided   for  in   Section  one  arrangements   and   would   be  gone   on   with
shortly. It would be cheaper to construct
the  plank roadway  af er grading  had
been done.
I    The city engineer suggested in reference
j to the petition for a plank road between
i Eleventh avenue and Hays Cove avenue
| along Alfred street that this should be
| changed to a request for a plank walk
I from Ninth avenue to Hays Cove avenue
i and stated in connection with the petition
for a plank roadway on Summit avenue
that the ground was so rough here that
it  would  be  practically impossible to
' undertake this work without first grading
I the street.
The council adopted these reports
i arranging that the modified one in
regard to Ninth avenue and Hays Cove
avenue should be referred back to the
1 Streets committee in order that the
petitioners might further confer with the*
committee.
j "We should be very careful how we
turn down these petitions for plank
roadways in outlying districts" said
Aid. Hilditch. "We must give people
means of getting lumber out to build
��� their houses otherwise the district will
i not be speedily built up". Aid. Pattullo was of the same opinion.
INVITED BY WIRE
Members of Canadian Manufacturers
Assoc ation Asked to Visit Here
At the general meeting of the Board
of Trade last night a etter was read from
Mr. Coyney suggesting that as two hundred and fifty members of the Manufactures' Association of Canada would
shortly arrive at Vancouver, it might
be a good idea to invite them to visit
Prince Rupert. The meeting unanimously decided that it was and Secretary
Stephens was directed to telegraph such
an invitation to the association forthwith.

All through the country of the Upper
Skeena and through the Bulkley valley
as well as here in Prince Rupert great
attention is being given to the town of
Sealey.
Located as is on both the river and
the railroad it is in a position to go forward rapidly.
With the pay station and general
warehouses of Foley Welch & Stewart on
the townsite and with every boat on
the river calling there the fact that
Sealey is fast becoming the big supply
base of the Bulkley Valley is not to
be wondered at.
When the road eventually reaches
Sealey it will find a prosperous, thriving
town of no mean importance destined
to be the big business centre of Skeena
River and Bulkley Valley district.

of this city, together with some Vancouver parties, have purchased the
interest of T. Z. Krizner, of the Albion
Bottling Works, and will take possession
at the end of this month. This concern
has outgrown entirely its present quarters
and it is the intention of its new owners
to greatly improve the present plant.
They will probably occupy the whole
of the ground floor at present location
and also construct a new warehouse in
the rear.
Mr. Krizner will probably lease the
upper floors of his building, and will
move to the Alice Arm and Goose Bay
district, where he will devote his entire
time to his mining interests, which have
turned out good.

eventually be done depends upon the
financies.
Treasurer Nickerson had this in mind
while he and his confreers were showing
the new house. He called the members
to a meeting and had the satisfaction of
informing them that the club had its
informal opening entirely free of debt.
This led several leading members to
often solemnly remark���"Maxey, open
another." So the business meeting became somewhat of a revival, and a
number of those present sought the repentance bench and paid up.
This was the date up to which members might join on payment of $25, but
in the course of the discussion it was
pointed out that several intending to
join were not present and in the spirit
of good fellowship that prevailed the
time limit was extended to the 17th. After
it will be $35 for a limited period, and
after that the "ground floor" of member-
aahip will be closed.
On the 23rd of this month the club is
to be formally opened with a grand ball,
and there is to be a dance every month
during the winter months, by invitation
of course.
What strikes one in the new club
particularly is the number of potted
plants, many in flower, that have been
presented. Martin O'Reilly has presented a couple of handsome pictures,
and there will undoubtedly be many
such notable donations before the formal opening on the 23rd.
LABOR APLENTY COMING
Contractors Now  Feeling More Relieved About the Labor Famine
Nearly one hundred workers for the
railway construction were landed from
the Prince George last night, and the
greater part of them were dispatched
up the line on the regular construction
train this morning. Mr. Vernor Smith,
manager for the contractors, said he
thought there would be no more difficulty in securing enough men, as there
would be two hundred coming in by the
Prince Rupert on Wednesday and as
many as could be sent on each succeeding Grand Trunk steamer.
ARE THERE
FIFTY PEOPLE

Who appreciate strictly fresh ranch
eggs. If so we are talking to them. We
can safely say, without fear of contradiction, that the Exchange Grill, is
the only house in Prince Rupert,
IN ANY LINE, that receives regular
shipments of fresh eggs direct from the
ranch. Our weekly consignments amount
to three cases, containing 1,080 eggs,
which we guarantee to be absolutely
fresh. This number is sufficient to provide breakfast for fifty people daily.
We will serve them in the shell, and will
pay a five dollar gold piece to the patron
who discovers one egg which is not
strictly right. We have the equipment
and staff to give you speedy and courteous
service.

MEETING THIS EVENING
Matter of Railway Taxation To Be
Discussed By Board of Trade
The general meeting of the board of
trade will be held this evening, in the
board's rooms, when a report of the
council of the board on railway taxation
will be received and discussed. Then probably a resolution will be passed making
certain recommendations to the city
council, and a committee appointed to
present it and to discuss the matter with
the aldermen. As the matter is one of
great interest at the present time, it is
believed there will be a large meeting
of members of the board.

New Westminster, Sept. 13.���The
summer town of White Rock was almost entirely destroyed by bush fires
late last night. Relief trains were sent
out from Ferndale but were stalled by a
bridge that had been burned out. No
lives were lost in the fire so far as known,
but several head of stock were burned to
death.
The line of the Great Northern to
Vancouver is blocked as a result of the
fires.
The property loss in White Rock is
estimated to amount to $30,000.

Aid.  Hilditch raised an objecrion at
the city council meeting last night that
the minutes of the impromptu meeting
held on Saturday afternoon, should not
1 be entered regularly in the minute book
: but   that   the   proceedings   should   be
merely   noted   as  having  taken   place.
"I do not consider that that meeting
was a meeting of the city council' he
j said. The minutes having already been
; entered in the book by the city clerk
from notes supplied.him by Aid. Naden.
Aid. Hilditch moved that they be struck
out.
j    Aid. Puttullo suggested that the record
' of proceedings at that meeting be en-
I ered merely as those of a conferencen
| between members   of the city council
; who happened to be present, and the
j representatives o theB.C.Tie and Timber
Co., the city, however, to be still con-
��� sidered bound to the result of the trans-
I actions of the conference as recorded.
���    The mayor went on to describe his
efforts   to   assemble   the   city   council
at short notice.    He had tried to find
Aid.  Hilditch but  had not succeeded.
Aid. Pattullo said that he had seen Al.
Hilditch in the distance at the time and
had run after him but had not managed
to round him up.   There was, however,
a quorum at the conference.
It was finally decided to make the
entry in the minute book "Void" in
red, and note the proceedings as those
o  an impromptu conference.
The committee appointed by the Board
of Trade to confer with the city council
regarding what is alleged to be too high
an assessment of the railway property,
reported to a general meeting of the
board last night a plan by whioh the
assessment of such property is cut down
from $7,291,600, the sum fixed by the
government assessor, to $1,726,500. All
the members of the committee were
called upon to speak upon the subject,
and by means of maps and blue prints
collected by the committee each reduction and the grounds upon which it
was suggested were explained in detail.
President Morris said the special
business before the meeting was to
receive the report of the committee
appointed at the meeting of the council
of the board to confer with the city in
regard to the assessment of the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway property. The
committee had gone into the matter
thoroughly and was ready to make a
proposal to the city. He would call
upon Mr. Thomas Dunn to explain this
proposition and for Mr. Palmer to assist
him with the maps. Also he would ask
Mr. J. S. Pillsbury, who had been one
of the first engineers employed on the
townsite, to assist.
The business men's meeting in the
city hall, said Mr. Dunn, showed the
sentiment of the people that the assessment of $7,300,000 was simply ridiculous.
Mr. Hays had suggested a committee of
three, with the mayor as ex-officio, to
discuss the matter with an official of the
railway. But the council in its wisdom
did not see fit to do that. They wrote to
Mr. Hays simply stating that they
could not reduce the assessment. Now
| that might be good business but he did
I not think so. He thought that when Mr.
1 Hays suggested a committee the council
j should have appointed one. There
I were a great many things railway cor-
I porations wanted, and they often asked
' for much more than they expected to
j get. If they did not come together there
J was no chance of arriving at an understanding. Now this committee of five
has gone carefully and thoroughly into
facts and we would give you the results.
Mr. Dunn first read the following
schedule of the reductions in the railway
taxation suggested by the committee at
the same time pointing to each assessment on the map and explaining in full
why that particular reduction was
proposed.
Mr. Palmer followed with a brief and
lucid explanation, supplementing that
of Mr. Dunn. J. G. Scott and M. M.
Stephens contented themselves with a
hearty concurrence in the report, as did
William Law. Upon the call of the chair
Mr. Pillsbury also went over a portion
of the blue prints, and in this way every
point involved in the discussion was
carefully explained and made clear.
Mr. Dunn again took up points of
detail and added to them. In regard to
the plot of land Section 2, Block "E," he
said this was a narrow strip only 225
feet wide right along the mountain and
no good to anybody. Yet this had been
assessed at half a million dollars.
"Better send for the assessor," sb-
served [Secretary Stephens.
"He certainly had some queer ideas,"
remarked President Morris.
Mr.  Christiansen thought the com-

(Special to the Optimist)
Bellingham, Sept. 13.���George Reid,
who is wanted for the murder of his wife
at Clayburn, was captured near Ferndale
last night. He was arrested by A. L.
Soper and Fred Clarke. He admitted
his identity but refused to discuss the
murder charge in any way. He is now in
jail at Whatcom and the proceedings
necessary for his extradition to Canada

mittee had gone into the matter very
thoroughly and he was in favor of the
j board making a recommendation to the
i council in accordance with their report.
Mr. Dunn said the city council wanted
j a "concrete" (laughter) proposition and
I in this report they would have one.
, Some of the estimates might be too high,
'others too low, but the council might lay
it before the Grand Trunk people and
see what they had to say about it.
"But the city council think it would be
undignified for them to make any suggestion to the Grand Trunk. We will
put this clearly before them and if they
refuse to act we will call a public meeting
to take the matter up. If this council
refuses to open up negotiations with the
railway and the citizens say such negotiations should be opened up, then we
will take hold of the whole matter and
ask those members of the city council to
resign.
"The railway asks a good deal but the
city also wants a good deal from them.
The Grand Trunk will give us a site for
city hall, park sites and so on, and we
want those. We also want the railway
work to go forward. The dry dock will
take two years to build and look what
the city would get out of that. I know
the machinery is all here for the machine
shops, and that Mr. Mehan has had
orders to store it away. The shops
would employ four hundred men or
more, and how much better to have those
men living right in the city than to have
the shops six miles out of town."
The president summed up the advantages to the city of taking early
action in the matter and on the motion
of C. D. Newton, seconded by O. Besner,
a resolution was passed unanimously
adopting the report and that the committee present it to the council.
Several petitions for local improvements came before the city council last
night in the form of the city engineer's
repor  on them.
There was one for a plank roadway on
Four h avenue between McBride street
and Hays Cove Circle. The city engineer suggested in regard to this that
th petition should be amended o cover
either rough grading of the street, or
plank oadway from McBride to Young
street only as it was not possible to
ob ain a passable grade there without
considerable grading.
The plank road petitioned for on
Seventh street, between First and Second
avenues the city engineer considered
i should wait until the street grading there
i is finished, and recommended that the
j completion of this grading should be
i provided for in the next contract let for
I Set tion one. '^-���-._.
I    On account  of the roughness of the
I ground the city engineer thought that
| the cost of constructing a plank road-
! way as petitioned for on Park avenue
\ and Eleventh s reet, would be very high.
��� The    umber of houses was also small.
I But the grading of this street had been
provided  for  in   Section,   one   arrangements   and   would   be  gone   on   with
i shortly. It would be cheaper to construct
the  plank  roadway af er grading  had
i been done.
I    The city engineer suggested in reference
j to the petition for a plank road between
I Eleventh avenue and Hays Cove avenue
| along Alfred street that this should be
, changed to a request for a plank walk
I from Ninth avenue to Hays Cove avenue
i and stated in connection with the petition
for a plank roadway on Summit avenue
that the ground was so rough here that
it   would  be  practically  impossible  to
; undertake this work without first grading
j the street.
The council adopted these reports
i arranging that the modified one in
regard to Ninth avenue and Hays Cove
avenue should be referred back to the
Streets committee in order that the
petitioners might further confer with the
committee.
j "We should be very careful how we
, turn down these petitions for plank
roadways in outlying districts" said
Aid. Hilditch. "We must give people
means of getting lumber out to build
their houses otherwise the district will
not be speedily built up". Aid. Pattullo was of the same opinion.

AUSTRALIA TO
JOIN CANADA
CITIZEN
OF
ARMY    FOR   DEFENCE
COMMONWEALTH
Trained Force of Hundred and
Twenty-five Thousand Men in
Five Years at Estimated Cost of
Ten Millions Yearly.
Melbourne, Sept. 8.���The commonwealth government expects to join
the government of Canada in securing an
improved mail service but the postal
business of Australia does not warrant
the granting of a subsidy for the purpose. It is hoped, however, that new
avenues of trade in frozen produce
will justify the expense incurred by
the federal ministry, stipulating for
faster steamers with enlarged refrigerating accommodation. It is anticipated that a contract will be completed
in a few days.
The compulsory service under the
new federal defence bill is based on
the report furnished by Lord Kitchner.
The bill which has been introduced in
the senate ra?quires the service of cadets
between the ages of 14 and 18, with
subsequent service for six years in the
citizen forces. Eight days every year
must be spent in camp and eight days in
homo training.
The system is estimated to produce
a trained army of 125,000 men in five
years. The six capital towns of the
commonwealth are to be fortified and
other naval bases will be created along
the cost line.
The cost at the outset is estimated at
$10,000,000 a year. This expenditure
and the cast of the new federal navy
will necessitate the whole of the revenue from the federal land tax being
employed solely  for defence  purposes.
The minister of customs is considering the question of establishing an
Australian trade commissionership in
Canada to point out the opportunities
for placing produce and fruit within
the Dominion.
HAZELTON REAL ESTATE
Thirty-Two Thousand Paid  for  Plot
Next Taylor Section
A real estate deal of considerable
importance was transacted in Hazelton
last week, being the transfer of the
section of land joining the "Taylor
Section" on the west. This land was
owned by J. C. K. Sealey and Walter
Burns and the price received was $32,000
This is the largest real estate deal
ever transacted in this vicinity and will
probably have some effect on the real
estate market in Hazeltqn. The value
of this piece of land is apparent it joining what is supposed to become the
G. T. P. townsite for this section of the
country.
No name of the purchaser has been

SQUABBLE   OVER   RANCH
Charles Bartlett Now Sole Owner of
Diamond   D.    Ranch
News was received Friday says the
Omineca Herald, of a settlement of the
differences between the owners of the
Diamond D ranch, C. Barrett and E.
Charleson, whereby Charles Barrett becomes the sole owner of all the holding
of the firm of C. Barrett and Co., which
consist   of  a   3000-acre   ranch   in   the
pinch because of this unnecessary ex*
travagrance.
May I earnestly appeal to all those
who are about to welcome to our town
licensed bars to use their influence from
the very start to put down a custom
which more than anything else has
brought discredit upon the license system.
There is a rising tide of sentiment which
will not stand for the wanton debauching
of the young manhood of our country.
The appeal to personal liberty so often
heard against prohibition may be turned
with increased force against the slavery
of this debasing custom.
Let the old sots, if they will, line up
before our new bars, waiting for some
mis-called friend to give them another
push down the grade, but let our young
men, in whose hands lies largely the
future of our great country determine
to break away from the thraldom of
this bondage and set a new example.
More effective than any anti-treating
by-law would be a strong popular
sentiment among our young men that
it is bad form to treat another at a public
bar. "

Winnipeg, Sept. 7.���The English investors who have come to Canada this
year and invested so heavily in Western Canada lands are no longer seeking for speculation, but for investment. They are not buying for the
purpose of holding for speculative increase in values, but with a definite
plan for colonizing the lands acquired.
This is the new note in Canadian land
investments by .British capitalists."
This was the opinion expressed by
C. Keith Morris, investment editor
of the Canadian Gazette of London,
and carried added weight from the
fact that Mr. Morris, during a sojourn
of over two months in British Columbia and other parts of Western Canada, has been in close touch with a
number of prominent Englishmen who
have invested heavily in lands within
the past few weeks.
"Those who have come to Canada
this year are but the forerunners of
a certainly increasing number who
will come later on," continued Mr.
Morris, "Canada offers a field for investment that no other country in the
world offers at the present time and
the movement is hardly yet under
way. The British investor is at last
beginning to realize the opportunities that Canada has for the man who
investigates for himself and who plans
wisely. The better class of English
farmers will be aided and looked after
in moving to the new land. In some
cases 'ready-made' farms will be provided for them, and in other cases the
plan is to put them on the land on half
crop payments or some similar arrangements. There will be little more of the
pitchforking of men into Canada and
leaving them to sink or swim, looking
only to them for yearly payments on
land which they take up. In future they
will be looked after, assisted until they
learn the ways of the new life, and given
every chance and aid to make a success."

CITIZEN   ARMY    FOR   DEFENCE
OF   COMMONWEALTH
Trained Force of Hundred and
Twenty-five Thousand Men in
Five Years at Estimated Cost of
Ten Millions Yearly.
Melbourne, Sept. 8.���The commonwealth government expects to join
the government of Canada in securing an
improved mail service but the postal
business of Australia does not warrant
the granting of a subsidy for the purpose. It is hoped, however, that new
avenues of trade in frozen produce
will justify the expense incurred by
the federal ministry, stipulating for
faster steamers with enlarged refrigerating accommodation. It is anticipated that a contract will be completed
in a few days.
The compulsory service under the
new federal defence bill is based on
the report furnished by Lord Kitchner.
The bill which has been introduced in
the senate r<?quires the service of cadets
between the ages of 14 and 18, with
subsequent service for six years in the
citizen forces. Eight days every year
must be spent in camp and eight days in
home training.
The system is estimated to produce
a trained army of 125,000 men in five
years. The six capital towns of the
commonwealth arc to be fortified and
other nava! bases will be created along
the cost line.
The cost at the outset is estimated at
$10,000,000 a year. This expenditure
and the cast of the new federal navy
will necessitate the whole of the revenue from the federal land tax being
employed  solely  for  defence  purposes.
The minister of customs is considering the question of establishing an
Australian trade commissionership in
Canada to point out the opportunities
for placing produce and fruit within
the Dominion.
A real estate deal of considerable
importance was transacted in Hazelton
last week, being the transfer of the
section of land joining the "Taylor
Section" on the west. This land was
owned by J. C. K. Sealey and Walter
Burns and the price received was $32,000.
This is the largest real estate deal
ever transacted in this vicinity and will
probably have some effect on the real
estate market in Hazelton. The value
of this piece of land is apparent it joining what is supposed to become the
G. T. P. townsite for this section of the
country.
No name of the purchaser has been
made public as yet.
Activity   at    Sealey
The saw mill at Sealey owned by
Flanigan & Hart has started cutting with
a capacity of 40,000 feet per day. The
first lumber cut will be used for Sealey's
new hotel.
a row of men lining up before a licensed
bar and allowing another man, often
almos a stranger, to spend two or three
days' wages upon them for a momentary
gratification with perhaps the knowledge
that his wife and children will have to
pinch because of this unnecessary ex-
travagrance.
May I earnestly appeal to all those
who are about to welcome to our town
licensed bars to use their influence from
the very start to put down a custom
which more than anything else has
brought discredit upon the license system.
There is a rising tide of sentiment which
will not stand for the wanton debauching
of the young manhood of our country.
The appeal to personal liberty so often
heard against prohibition may be turned
with increased force against the slavery
of this debasing custom.
Let the old sots, if they will, line up
before our new bars, waiting for some
mis-called friend to give them another
push down the grad��, but let our young
men, in whose hands lies largely the
future of our great country determine
to break away from the thraldom of
this bondage and set a new example.
More effective than any anti-treating
by-law would be a strong popular
sentiment among our young men that
it is bad form to treat another at a public
bar.

Hazelton    Rifle   Club
Thanks to the energy and efficiency
.-l-own by H. W. Sharp, secretary of the
I azelton Rifle Association, says the
Omineca Herald, all the work of clearing
the range and setting up the targets
has been completed. The telephones have
not as yet arrived, nor have the rifles
which are in Rupert and expected on
the next boat. A larger membership
would be a good thing, and anyone
contemplating joining can make up-
lication to II. W. Sharp, secretary, or J.
Mailland-Dougall.
Captain Balcom Tells of Success of
Rose   Harbor   Station
News was received Friday says the
Omineca Herald, of a settlement of the
differences between the owners of the
Diamond D ranch, C. Barrett and E.
Charleson, whereby Charles Barrett becomes the sole owner of all the holding
of the firm of C. Barrett and Co., which
consist of a 3000-acre ranch in the
Bulkley valley, of which 1000 acres is
under cultivation, and a large amount
of live stock, a ranch in the Chilcoten
country, where the live stock is wintered
and a number of small pieces of land
between the Diamond D. and Hazelton.
Negotiations between the owners
were carried on in' Hazelton for a week
last June, but nothing resulted but a
deadlock and it was feared there would
be a long legal battle between them and
the people of this district will be glad
to hear of an amicable settlement of
their differences as they are both well
liked and have many friends.
Charles Barrett has been in British
Columbia for many years and in the
northern interior for the past ten years.
He is a rancher of long experience and
the present fine condition of the Diamond
D ranch is largely due to his ability.
The original ranch consisted of 320
acres, being the second preemption to
be taken in the Bulkley valley and was
located in 1901. Year by year more
land has been acquired until there are
now 3,120 acres, obtained with South
African war script and by purchase from
the Provincial government.
Captain R. Balcom of Victoria, is a
guest at the Prince Rupert Inn. He is
connected with the new whaling station
at Rose Harbor, Moresby island. The
station has only been operated for six
weeks yet during that time no less than
eighty large whales have been taken.
Hundred and fifty men are engaged at
the station, making oil and fertilizer
from the fish, one of the C. P. R. boats
and. the Amur being engaged to carry
the product to Vancouver.

INVESTMENT
ENGLISH CAPITALISTS NOW FOLLOW NEW  PLAN
Not Purchasing For Purpose of Hold- j
ing   For   Speculative   Increase   In I
Values   But   With   Definite   Plans
For Colonization.
Winnipeg, Sept. 7.���The English in-
vestors who have come to Canada this
year and invested so heavily in West- |
em Canada lands are no longer seek-'
ing (or speculation, but for investment. They are not buying for the
purpose of holding for speculative increase in values, but with a definite
plan for colonizing the lands acquired.
This is the new note in Canadian land
investments by .British capitalists."
This was the opinion expressed by
C. Keith Morris, investment editor
of the Canadian Gazette of London,
and carried added weight from the
fact that Mr. Morris, during a sojourn
of over two months in British Columbia and other parts of Western Canada, has been in close touch with a
number of prominent Englishmen who
have invested heavily in lands within
the past few weeks.
"Those who have come to Canada
this year are but the forerunners of
a certainly increasing number who
will come later on," continued Mr.
Morris, "Canada offers a field for investment that no other country in the
world offers at the present time and
the movement is hardly yet under
way. The British investor is at last
beginning to realize the opportunities that Canada has for the man who
investigates for himself and who plans
wisely. The better class of English
farmers will be aided and looked after
in moving to the new land. In some
cases 'ready-made' farms will be provided for them, and in other cases the
plan is to put them on the land on half
crop payments or some similar arrangements. There will be little more of the
pitchforking of men into Canada and
leaving them to sink or swim, looking
only to them for yearly payments on
land which they take up. In future they
will be looked after, assisted until they
learn the ways of the new life, and given
every chance and aid to make a success."

OUR GREATEST ASSET
The latest news from the Hague does no' enlighten us concerning the question
most important to the Pacific Coast. It would seem that the Newfoundland questions
have been settled and a compromise decision arrived at but so far the Hecate straits
question has not be given publicity. It is to be hoped that Hon. A. B. Aylesworth,
the talented minister of justi ce who represented our case has been able to preserve
this national birthright.
The New England Fish Company, one of the largest fishing concerns in the
world has for years been fishing on the halibut banks of Hecate straits and enjoying
the privilege of shipping their fish from British Columbia ports through Canada
in bond. While it has always been contended that these waters are Canadian waters
the Dominion government have never attempted to enforce the fishing regulations
It has been generally understood that the question would be argued and decided at
the present sitting of the Hague tribunal.
Prince Rupert has been rightly termed the Gloucester of the Pacific for within
a few miles of our docks are the greatest halibut banks in the world, but Canadians
are up against a gigantic fish monopoly in the New England Fish Company; one
that even on an equitable basis of competition, would put the small fellow out of
business, but if this company can fish in the same waters, by the same methods,
use the same railway transportation and sell their fish in the same markets free
of duty, while Canadians are compelled to pay lc per pound duty, any school boy
can see the handicap. It is to be hoped that this question was brought before the
Hague court of arbitration and decided. If as a result American fishermen have the
same rights as Canadians on these fishing grounds the only salvation for us is the
early completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway and the cancellation of the
new England Fish Companies' permit, which will force their steamers to travel
1200 miles to and from the fishing grounds while Canadian fishermen can land and
ship over the G. T. P. Railway at Prince Rupert three and one half hours after the
fish are caught, giving us the advantage of being able to ship to the American markets
immediately, also the saving of time and deterioration which the New England and
other American fishermen will be up against, by being compelled to steam to Seattle,
which would offset to a very larger extent the duty Canadians are compelled to pay.
Such a policy on the completion of the G. T. P. Railway will force American
fishing vessels to come under the Canadian flag with Prince Rupert as their home
port in place of Seattle, and with Canadians, assist in making Prince Rupert one of
the world's greatest fishing ports.
PARLIAMENTARY REPRESENTATION FOR LABOR
A brief dispatch published in the Optimist yesterday told of the Osborne case
being brought up at the trade and labor congress now being held in Sheffield, and
there is no doubt there will be much angry discussion in regard to it, as it really puts
an end, or will be an influencial hindrance, toiabor organizations having representatives in the British house of commons. Members, of the British house receive no pay
from the government, and it has been the practice in the United Kingdom, for the
Labor Unions to assess the members a small sum to provide a fund to pay the election expenses of Labor candidates and a salary for such members-elect as required
as most of the Labor members do. A man named Osborne refused to pay, and the
case being taken into court, it was held on appeal that he had the right to refuse
and that by his refusal he lost none of his rights as a member of the union: The
effect of the decision is that the Unions must depend upon voluntary subscriptions,
and an appeal for these proved so flat a failure that the whole political fabric of
trades unionism has been thrown into confusion.

(Special to the Optimist)
Winnipeg, Sept. 13.���"I want to see
British seamen on the British Columbia
coast," said Sir George Doughty, who
is here today on his way back from Prince
Rupert to Grimsby, England. He went
on to say that steps must be taken to
direct British fishermen to the Pacific
coast, or the Americans and Orientals
would control the whole fisheries industry. He declares that as soon at
he reaches home he will use every effors
to bring out men and colonize them on
the coast.
He goes on to say that such a course
would produce a nucleus for a naval
reserve, soon to become a necessity on
the coast in connection with Canada's
navy, as Great Britain might not always
be at peace with Japan. It was from the
British fishermen that her naval reserve was recruited, and they were
naturally the best recruits to be had.
The grading and close cutting required for Second St. wil1 be done by the
ci y engineer also the construction of the
plank roadway for that street. The
Streets, Works and Property Committee
at last night's city council meeting reported the city engineer the successful
tenderer for this work.
The grading and closa cutting for
Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth and Fraser
Streets will be done by Alex. McLean
whose tender was also recommended for
acceptance.
The construction of the plank roadway
for these streets is to be carried out by
John Vierich.
It was pointed out by Aid. Hilditch
that the highest tenderer had secured
the contract on the Fraser street ground
because the other tenders were not made
out correctly. The streets committee
had decided that in future unless a tender
were accurately made out it would not
be accepted at all.
Aid. Barrow showed that the form in
which tenders were requested to be
sent in was not one to which contractors
in these parts were accustomed and
suggesied that the form might be altered to meet them in this. The committees' report was adopted.

LIFE INSURANCE
Rev. Henry Ward Beecher:
"Your affairs may become involved
and your property taken for debt'
but a thousand dollars insurance on
your life cannot be taken for debt;
cannot be alienated from your heirs'
and if you have chosen your Company discreetly, is subject to no
commercial risks. It is as nearly
sure as anything earthly can be."
Bishop Henry C. Potter.
"Life Insurance has advantages,
especially to persons of small means,
which it does not seem easy to over-
slate. To those of my own profession it furnishes a method of laying
by for ' a rainy day' of all the most
practicable and effectual."
President Wm. H. Taft:
"A man in office without means
must abandon the hope of making
the future of his family luxuriously
comfortable. All a man can do under existing circumstances to safeguard his family is to get his life insured."
Hon. Theodore Roosevelt:    .
"Life Insurance increases the stability of the business world, raises
, its moral tone and puts a premium
upon those habits of thrift and saving which are so essential to the
welfare of the people as a body."

Question of Disposal of Reward
Likely To Be Settled By Courts,
Scotland Yard Man Contesting
Claim   of   Captain    Kendall.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sept. 12���The Crippen inquest was resumed this morning and
the undertaker and morgue keeper each
spent an uneasy half hour on the witness
stand, under the cross-examination of
Mr. Newton, the barrister who is conducting the defence of Dr. Crippen.
Mr. Newton tried to get an admission
from them that when the body of Belle
Elmore was removed they used carbolic
acid to counteract the odours from the
body.
When asked the object of the searching enquiry into this point Mr. Newton
said that if carbolic acid had been so
used the analysis made by the government chemist showing the presence of
hyoscine was worthless. Both witnesses
declared that there was no ground for
the report that carbolic had been used
in any form. Mr. Newton also sought to
show by these witnesses that the way the
body was shovelled into the box would
account for the bruises upon it.
Miss May, secretary of the Music Hall
Guild, of which Belle Elmore was a
leading member, testified to a dream she
had that Dr. Crippen had strangled his
wife. The dream was of the most vivid
character, she said, and the sudden
disappearance of Belle Elmore about that
time recalled it to her memory. She also
told of Elmore's life with Crippen at
the time at which Miss Le Neve entered
the doctor's service, drawing the conclusion that the married life of the
deceased at that time was not a happy one
Neither of the prisoners were present
at the inquest.
The courts will probably be called
upon to decide about the disposal of the
reward offered for the capture of Dr.
Crippen. Detective-Sergeant Barclay,
of Scotland Yard, claims that he put the
authorities on the right track, and he
wi 1 contest the claim put in by Captain
Kendall, of the Montrose.who reported by
wireless that the refugees were on his
vessel.

Mr. Macdonald: We claim that this

Then came the discovery that the ap

leases, but simply receipts for their
money and that there was a conflict as
to whether the idea was conveyed at the

The chief commissioner said this was
a serious question. The applicants had
an equitable title, but when the government came to give the titles, they might
make terms. Or they might refuse to
issue a license and give, a fiat and aay
they would do as the courts directed.
It was left in the position that the
applicants must produce their titles before the board will move in the matter.
TELEPHONE TRANSACTIONS
Some   Recommendations   By   City
Light and 'Phone Committee
In a report submitted by the Light and
Telephone committee to the city council
last night several recommendations were
made. Among them are that Mr. Dodds
the installer of the first switch' board
should remain in the city until the second
switch board arrives. Firther that 200
new directories, and 500 telephone
contract forms be permitted, and that
telephone instruments be installed at the
pumping station and at the dam on the
mountain as recommended by the city
engineer.
Mr. Lowe is authorized to employ
more men when the new cable arrives,
and the committee also recommended
the payment of outstanding accounts
against the telephone company and that
the notes to the amount of $6000 given
by telephone stockholders to the Canadian Bank of Commerce be paid.
ALD. BARROW "ROARS"
He Does Not Like Muskeg Dumping
On    Streets.
Referring to the matter of the granting
of W. L. Barker's petition to dump
muskeg on the street in connection
with the excavation work for the new
hotel to be erected on First avenue,
Aid. Barrow rose at last night's council
meeting to protest that this petition
had not been referred to the Streets,
Works, and Property committee.
"If it had been so," he added "I
should have objected to it, and presented
a minority report to the council. But
it was not, and this is the reason of my
roar tonight."
There was no discussion. Mayor and
council seemed awed into silence by so
rare an occurrence as a roar from Aid.
Barrow.
WHY   BUTT   IN?
'Let   Government   Finish   Sewer,'
Says Aid. Mobley
Regarding the question of the city's
taking over the part of the sewer work
at present nearing completion, from the
Government Aid. Lynch explained to
Aid. Hilditch last night that it was
necessary to understand exactly where
they stood in the matter of the financial
aspect of the work. He had obtained all
wanted information from Mr. McMullen.
It was necessary that the Finance committee should have the position clear.
Aid. Pattullo thought the main thing
was that they should be sure they incurred no liability for cost of the work
to be completed.
"But the work is so nearly finished
now, " he said "why monkey with it?
Leave it to the government to finish.
It is getting on all right isn't it?"
"Yes" said the mayor "I think they
might as well go right ahead and finish
it. Our city engineer has enough to do
without adding to his duties the work
of supervision of this sewer."
It was agreed to file the report dealing with this matter.
PETER BLACK'S
LARGE HOTEL
ROOFING OF NEW HOUSE FINISHED THIS AFTERNOON
Commanding Situation on First
Avenue and Seventh Street.���Is
To Be One of Largest and Best Appointed  Hostelries  in  City.
There is great activity in hotel building just now and each new structure
seems to be an improvement upon the
last one in size, design or some other
notable feature. These later buildings,
too, are more aunstantial and expensive,
denoting a confidence in the stability
of the city and a desire to build for the
needs of the future rather then to meet
present demands.
The one Peter Black is erecting at the
corner of First avenue and Seventh
street is an evidence of this. The roof
was finished this afternoon and one can
judge of the position it is bound to fill
as one of the leading hotels of Prince
Rupert for many years to come, from its
present appearance. Its proximity to the
site for the new passenger depot and its
commanding situation are features that
Mr. Black thought warranted him in
supplying as good a building and of as
permanent a character as possible, and
he seems to have succeeded in doing this.
The new Black hotel covers two full
lots and is three stories with a full
basement 60 x 100 feet, well-lighted and
eight feet in the clear. Wide sidewalks
of concrete will surround it on Seventh
street and Font avenue and on each
there is a large entrance. On each upper
floor there are wide windows set out
over the pavement, six on the street and
four on the front. These will have window
seating so that the guests may sit and
look out over the bay or on the bustling
town.
The rear of the big structure is designed in the form of an "E", so that by
the construction of these two courts
every room is well supplied with natural
light and pure air.
The entrance hall on the avenue has
a grand stair case eight feet wide springing from the rear and to the right is the
office and reading room. Back of this
is a dining room which is to have small
party tables and accommodate about
fifty people without crowding. Great
attention will be paid to the furnishing
of the commodious kitchen, and it will
be supplied with the most modem of
appliances, with steam tables, butler's
pantry and so on.
On the other side of the entrance is
the buffet. This is thirty-eight feet long
by twenty-four wide and is to be fitted
up regardless. There is a billard room
that will accommodate three tables, and
a barber shop for the convenience of
guests.
The interior decorations and furnishings are planned on those of the New
Washington of Seattle, and Mr. Black
says that when the hotel is running he
shall see that there are plenty of blooming plants and shrubs all over the house,
as he believes nothing gives such a grace
and homelike charm as plenty of flowers.
The ladies parlor on the first floor, which
is nineteen feet by twenty-four, will be
as pretty as it can be made, and the.same
of everyone of the forty-six bedrooms,
the very smallest of which will be nine
feet by fourteen. The halls, too, are
spacious and in every detail the house
promises to be really up-to-date and well
equipped for tourist trade. The whole
house will be steam heated from the
basement with radiators in every room.
Munro & Lalley are the architects and
Mr. Hilditch the contractor. Both firms
have good reason to be proud of their
work. Mr. Black says part of the rooms
will be ready for occupancy this week
but that the formal opening and house-
warming is to be marked by a grand ball
October 16th, if that date does not conflict with the monthly ball of the Kaien
Island club. Between times Mr. Black
says he can accommodate all Yukon
sourdoughs and their friends in at least
as good a way as they have been accustomed to. Peter was very popular in
the  Klondike and   will   undoubtedly!
gain a large proportion of the trade from
the north for his new house.
GOVERNMENT  WHARF
Board  of  Trade  Endorses   Petition
Addressed to Premier McBride
At the general meeting of the board of
trade last night the petition started by
J. H. Rogers last month, praying the
premier to use his influence for the early
completion of the government wharf,
was brought forward. The petition was
signed by a large majority of the property owners of the city, and its general
tenor being well known to those present
the desire of Mr. Rogers to have it endorsed by the board and presented to the
premier upon his visit here was heartily
approved without any discussion.
It seemed to be generally expected
that the premier would be here some
time within the next two weeks.

MEMBERS IN ARREARS
Board of Trade Brings Up Delinquents
With Short Turn
Secretary Stephens f the Board of
Trade drew the attention of members*
who attended the general meeting last
night that quite a few members were
in arrears and at once so many stood up
ready to accept the challenge that he
asked for a recess of five minutes. During
that time he was busy taking in the money
putting off the writing of receipts until
later.
There were still a number of names
on the books figuring as delinquents
and by motion some of those who are
absentees were struck off. It was then
proposed to read the whole list, in accordance with the bylaws Of the board. To
this the secretary suggested that action
had better be postponed until the next
meeting, as he felt assured by that time,
in consequence of such a notice, there
would be few names to read.
Welcomed    Magistrate    Back
Magistrate Carss returned this morning to his task of administering justice
to the delinquents of the city of Prince
Rupert, and presided over todays police
court.
J. E. McKechnie appeared before the
bar o pustice pleading guilty to a charge
of having been drunk last night. There
was nothing else for it. He was called
upon to find a five-spot and frills before
leaving a sadder and a wiser man.
Hospital Committee Will Meet
A meeting of the General Hospital
committee is to be called this week on a
day not yet fixed by A. Cuthbert the
organizing secretary. Several important
items of business will be discussed notably the question of furnishings and
hospital equipment, and the organization of a ladies' auxiliary. The hospital
building   makes   rapid   progress.
The question of the city's bargain with
the B. C. Tie and Timber Co., came before
the city council again last night, and as
the matter had been so far dealt with in
a manner informally, the mayor suggested that the council should adjourn
for a ten minutes recess while the telephone and lighting committee considered the matter of the offer of $6,600
to the B.C.Co., for their plant. This was
agreed to, and at the end of the recess
the committee reported to the council
confirming the matter. Some discussion
followed.
Aid. Hilditch asked if the boilers were
in good shape. "If they are not, " he
���aid "this is just throwing away $4000."
He understood that at a previous ex-
I amination the boilers had been considred
pretty bad. ,
Aid. Lynch reminded the meeting
that the city was under compulsion
to buy. The previous examination of
these boilers was not specially particular
as they were not thinking then of putting in such horse power. Besides, at
that time the company were asking
$1,600 more for their's. Aid. Mobley who
was capable of judging such plant had
examined the boilers now, and reported
them good. He thought the city had
made a good bargain.
The mayor said that he had at first
understood that the valves and fittings
of the boilers had been destroyed and
that it would be very difficult to take
the boilers up town. The first offer of
the B. C. Co., had been to have the boilers refitted and supplied with coal
grates, tested, and so handed over to the
city for $7,500. But the bargain preferred was to take the boilers as they
stood for $5,500 with the pole line etc.,
but not the dynamo. The reason he had
objected to the boilers before was because they were not what the city then
required.
Aid. Mobley said that as far as he
could judge the boilers were practically
as good as ever. In view of the fact that
they had to take two of them anyway
under charter, he thought it as well for
the city to take the whole lot. He did
not believe the boilers had been subjected
to more than normal heat during the fire.
Aid. Mclntyre said he would like to
be sure that the boilers were all'right and
worth what the city was to pay for them.
"If they are to help us to get a lighting
system soon, that alone would make me
favorable to the proposition" he added.
Aid. Pattullo wished to prevent unnecessary delay over the purchase. If
the city waited for a test and perhaps
later for arbitration regarding the price
of the plant, time might pass until they
found themselves in the position of
having a new lighting plant in and the
compulsory purchase of these boilers
still on their hands.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that a test
was necessary in any case before they
could start up with these boilers but
thought that the test could be carried
out by engineers in the city so as to
satisfy the government inspector so that
they could start up soon and have the
official inspection in course. Aid. Mobley
supported this view, and the matter of the
purchase of the B. C. Tie and Timber
Co's plant was confirmed by the council's
adoption of the Light and Telephone
committee's report.

(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sept. 12.���The Crippen inquest was resumed this morning and
the undertaker and morgue keeper each
spent an uneasy half hour on the witness
stand, under the cross-examination of
Mr. Newton, the barrister who is conducting the defence of Dr. Crippen.
Mr. Newton tried to get an admission
from them that when the body of Belle
Elmore was removed they used carbolic
acid to counteract the odours from the
body.
When asked the object of the searching enquiry into this point Mr. Newton
said that if carbolic acid had been so
used the analysis made by the government chemist showing the presence of
hyoscine was worthless. Both witnesses
declared that there was no ground for
the report that carbolic had been used
in any form. Mr. Newton also sought to
show by these witnesses that the way the
body was shovelled into the box would
account for the bruises upon it.
Miss May, secretary of the Music Hall
Guild, of which Belle Elmore was a
leading member, testified to a dream she
had that Dr. Crippen had strangled his
wife. The dream was of the most vivid
character, she said, and the sudden
disappearance of Belle Elmore about that
time recalled it to her memory. She also
told of Elmore's life with Crippen at
the time at which Miss Le Neve entered
the doctor's service, drawing the conclusion that the married life of the
deceased at that time was not a happy one
Neither of the prisoners were present
at the inquest.
The courts will probably be called
upon to decide about the disposal of the

Mr. Macdonald: We claim that this
action of the company is high handed as
well as illegal.
Then came the discovery that the ap
plicants has not yet obtained their
leases, but simply receipts for their
money and that there was a conflict as
to whether the idea was conveyed at the
sale that waterfront grants were conveyed.
The chief commissioner said this was
a serious question. The applicants had
an equitable title, but when the government came to give the titles, they might
make terms. Or they might refuse to
issue a license and give a fiat and say
they would do as the courts directed.
It was left in the position that the
applicants must produce their titles before the board will move in the matter.
TELEPHONE TRANSACTIONS
Some   Recommendation*   By   City
Light and 'Phone Committee
In a report submitted by the Light and
Telephone committee to the city council
last night several recommendations were
made. Among them are that Mr. Dodds
the installer of the first switch' board
should remain in the city until the second
switch board arrives. Firther that 200
new directories, and 500 telephone
contract forms be permitted, and that
telephone instruments be installed at the
pumping station and at the dam on the
mountain as recommended by the city
engineer.
Mr. Lowe is authorized to employ
more men when the new cable arrives,
and the committee also recommended
the payment of outstanding accounts
against the telephone company and that
the notes to the amount of $6000 given
by telephone stockholders to the Canadian Bank of Commerce be paid.

ALD. BARROW "ROARS"
He Does Not Like Muakeg Dumping
On    Street*
Referring to the matter of the granting
of W. L. Barker's petition to dump
muskeg on the street in connection
with the excavation work for the new
hotel to be erected on First avenue,
Aid. Barrow rose at last night's council
meeting to protest that this petition
had not been referred to the Streets,
Works, and Property committee.
"If it had been so," he added "I
should have objected to it, and presented
a minority report to the council. But
it was not, and this is the reason of my
roar tonight."
There was no discussion. Mayor and
council seemed awed into silence by so
rare an occurrence as a roar from Aid.
Barrow.
WHY   BUTT   IN?
"Let   Government   Finish   Sewer,'
Says Aid. Mobley
Regarding the question of the city's
taking over the part of the sewer work
at present nearing completion, from the
Government Aid. Lynch explained to
Aid. Hilditch last night that it was
necessary to understand exactly where
they stood in the matter of the financial
aspect of the work. He had obtained all
wanted information from Mr. McMullen.
It waa necessary that the Finance committee should have the position clear.
Aid. Pattullo thought the main thing
was that they should be sure they incurred no liability for cost of the work
to be completed.
"But the work is so nearly finished
now, " he said "why monkey with it?
Leave it to the government to finish.
It is getting on all right isn't it?"
"YeB" said the mayor "I think they
might as well go right ahead and finish
it. Our city engineer has enough to do
without adding to his duties the work
of supervision of this sewer."
It was agreed to file the report dealing with this matter.
There is great activity in hotel building just now and each new structure
seems to be an improvement upon the
last one in size, design or some other
notable feature. These later buildings,
too, are more Bunstantial and expensive,
denoting a confidence in the stability
of the city and a desire to build for the
needs of the future rather then to meet
present demands.
The one Peter Black is erecting at the
corner of First avenue and Seventh
street is an evidence of this. The roof
was finished this afternoon and one can
judge of the position it is bound to fill
as one of the leading hotels of Prince
Rupert for many years to come, from its
present appearance. Its proximity to thc
site for the new passenger depot and its
commanding situation are features that
Mr. Black thought warranted him in
supplying as good a building and of as
permanent a character as possible, and
he seems to have succeeded in doing this.
The new Black hotel covers two full
lots and is three stories with a full
basement 60 x 100 feet, well-lighted and
eight feet in the clear. Wide sidewalks
of concrete will surround it on Seventh
street and Forst avenue and on each
there is a large entrance. On each upper
floor there are wide windows set out
over the pavement, six on the street and
four on the front. These will have window
seating so that the guests may sit and
look out over the bay or on the bustling
town.
The rear of the big structure is designed in the form of an "E", so that by
the construction of these two courts
every room is well supplied with natural
light and pure air.
The entrance hall on the avenue has
a grand stair case eight feet wide springing from the rear and to the right is the
office and reading room. Back of this
is a dining room which is to have small
party tables and accommodate about
fifty people without crowding. Great
attention will be paid to the furnishing
of the commodious kitchen, and it will
be supplied with the most modem of
appliances, with steam tables, butler's
pantry and so on.
On the other side of the entrance is
the buffet. This is thirty-eight feet long
by twenty-four wide and is to be fitted
up regardless. There is a billard room
that will accommodate three tables, and
a barber shop for the convenience of
guests.
The interior decorations and furnishings are planned on those of the New
Washington of .Seattle, and Mr. Black
says that when the hotel is running he
shall see that there are plenty of blooming plants and shrubs all over the house,
as he believes nothing gives such a grace
and homelike charm as plenty of flowers.
The ladies parlor on the first floor, which
is nineteen feet by twenty-four, will be
as pretty as it can be made, and the.same
of everyone of the forty-six bedrooms,
the very smallest of which will be nine
feet by fourteen. The halls, too, are
spacious and in every detail the house
promises to be really up-to-date and well
equipped for tourist trade. The whole
house will be steam heated from the
basement with radiators in every room.
Munro & Lalley are the architects and
Mr. Hilditch the contractor. Both firms
have good reason to be proud of their
work. Mr. Black says part of the rooms
will be ready for occupancy this week
but that the formal opening and house-
warming is to be marked by a grand ball
October 15th, if that date does not conflict with the monthly ball of the Kaien
Island club. Between times Mr. Black
says he can accommodate all Yukon
sourdoughs and their friends in at least
as good a way as they have been accustomed to. Peter was very popular in
the  Klondike  and   will   undoubtedly
gain a large proportion of the trade from
the north for his new house.
GOVERNMENT  WHARF
Board  of  Trade  Endorses   Petition
Addressed to Premier McBride
At the general meeting of the board of
trade last night the petition started by
J. H. Rogers last month, praying the
premier to use his influence for the early
completion of the government wharf,
was brought forward. The petition was
signed by a large majority of the property owners of the city, and its general
tenor being well known to those present
the desire of Mr. Rogers to have it endorsed by the board and presented to the
premier upon his visit here was heartily
approved without any discussion.
It seemed to be generally expected
that the premier would be here some
time within the next two weeks.

MEMBERS IN ARREARS
Board of Trade Brings Up Delinquents
With Short Turn
Secretary Stephens f the Board of
Trade drew the attention of members*
who attended the general meeting last
night that quite a few members were
in arrears and at once so many stood up
ready to accept the challenge that he
asked for a recess of five minutes. During
that time he was busy taking in the money
putting off the writing of receipts until
later.
There were still a number of names
on the books figuring as delinquents
and by motion some of those who are
absentees were struck off. It was then
proposed to read the whole list, in accordance with the bylaws of the board. To
this the secretary suggested that action
had better be postponed until the next
meeting, as he felt assured by that time,
in consequence of such a notice, there
would be few names to read.
Welcomed    Magistrate    Back
Magistrate Carss returned this morning to his task of administering justice
to the delinquents of the city of Prince
Rupert, and presided over todays police
court.
J. E. McKechnie appeared before the
bar o pustice pleading guilty to a charge
of having been drunk last night. There
was nothing else for it. He was called
upon to find a five-spot and frills before
leaving a sadder and a wiser man.
Hospital Committee Will Meet
A meeting of the General Hospital
committee is to be called this week on a
day not yet fixed by A. Cuthbert the
organizing secretary. Several important
items of business will be discussed notably the question of furnishings and
hospital equipment, and the organization of a ladies' auxiliary
The question of the city's bargain with
the B. C. Tie and Timber Co., came before
the city council again last night, and as
the matter had been so far dealt with in
a manner informally, the mayor suggested that the council should adjourn
for a ten minutes recess while the telephone and lighting committee considered the matter of the offer of $5,500
to the B.C.Co., for their plant. This was
agreed to, and at the end of the recess
the committee reported to the council
confirming the matter. Some discussion
followed.
Aid. Hilditch asked if the boilers were
in good shape. "If they are not, " he
���aid "this is just throwing away $4000."
He understood that at a previous examination the boilers had been considred
pretty bad.
Aid. Lynch reminded the meeting
that the city was under compulsion
to buy. The previous examination of
these boilers was not specially particular
| as they were not thinking then of putting in such horse power. Besides, at
j that time the company were asking
$1,500 more for their's. Aid. Mobley who
was capable of judging such plant had
examined the boilers now, and reported
them good. He thought the city had
made a good bargain.
The mayor said that he had at first
understood that the valves and fittings
of the boilers had beer, destroyed and
that it would be very difficult to take
the boilers up town. The first offer of
the B. C. Co., had been to have the boilers refitted and supplied with coal
grates, tested, and so handed over to the
city for $7,500. But the bargain preferred was to take the boilers as they
stood for $5,500 with the pole line etc.,
but not the dynamo. The reason he had
objected to the boilers before was because they were not what the city then
required.
Aid. Mobley said that as far as he
could judge the boilers were practically
as good as ever. In view of the fact that
they had to take two of them anyway
under charter, he thought it as well for
the city to take the whole lot. He did
not believe the boilers had been subjected
to more than normal heat during the fire.
Aid. Mclntyre said he would like to
be sure that the boilers were all right and
worth what the city was to pay for them.
"If they are to help us to get a lighting
system soon, that alone would make me
favorable to the proposition" he added.
Aid. Pattullo wished to prevent unnecessary delay over the purchase. If
the city waited for a test and perhaps
later for arbitration regarding the price
of the plant, time might pass until they
found themselves in the position of
having a new lighting plant in and the
compulsory purchase of these boilers
still on their hands.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that a test
was necessary in any case before they
could start up with these boilers but
thought that the test could be carried
out by engineers in the city so as to
satisfy the government inspector so that
they could start up soon and have the
official inspection in course. Aid. Mobley
supported this view, and the matter of the
purchase of the B. C. Tie and Timber
Co's plant was confirmed by the council's
adoption of the Light and Telephone
committee's report.

POISON USED IN
CRIPPEN CASE
I NICE POINT BROUGHT FORWARD
BY THE DEFENCE
Question of Disposal of Reward
Likely To Be Settled By Courts,
Scotland Yard Man Contesting
Claim    of   Captain    Kendall.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sept. 12���The Crippen inquest was resumed this morning and
the undertaker and morgue keeper each
spent an uneasy half hour on the witness
stand, under the cross-examination of
Mr. Newton, the barrister who is conducting the defence of Dr. Crippen.
Mr. Newton tried to get an admission
from them that when the body of Belle
Elmore was removed they used carbolic
acid to counteract the odours from the
body.
When asked the object of the searching enquiry into this point Mr. Newton
said that if carbolic acid had been so
used the analysis made by the government chemist showing the presence of
hyoscine was worthless. Both witnesses
declared that there was no ground for
the report that carbolic had been used
in any form. Mr. Newton also sought to
show by these witnesses that the way the
body was shovelled into the box would
account for the bruises upon it.
Miss May, secretary of the Music Hall
Guild, of which Belle Elmore was a
leading member, testified to a dream she
had that Dr. Crippen had strangled his
wife. The dream was of the most vivid
character, she said, and the sudden
disappearance of Belle Elmore about that
time recalled it to her memory. She also
told of Elmore's life with Crippen at
the time at which Miss Le Neve entered
the doctor's service, drawing the conclusion that the married life of the
deceased at that time was not a happy one
Neither of the prisoners were present
at the inquest.
The courts will probably be called
upon to decide about the disposal of the
reward offered for the capture of Dr.
Crippen. Detective-Sergeant Barclay,
of Scotland Yard, claims that he put the
authorities on the right track, and he
wi 1 contest the claim put in by Captain
Kendall, of the Montrose, who reported by
wireless that the refugees were on   his

Macdonald: That has occurred to

Mr. Macdonald: We claim that this

well as illegal.
Then came the discovery that the ap
plicants has not yet obtained their
leases, but simply receipts for their
money and that there was a conflict as
to whether the idea was conveyed at the
sale that waterfront grants were conveyed.
The chief commissioner said this was
a serious question. The applicants had
an equitable title, but when the government came to give the titles, they might
make terms. Or they might refuse to
issue a license and give a flat and say
they would do aa the courts directed.
It was left in the position that the
applicants must produce their titles before the board will move in the matter.
TELEPHONE TRANSACTIONS
Some   Recommendations   By   City
Light and 'Phone Committee
In a report submitted by the Light and
Telephone committee to the city council
last night several recommendations were
made. Among them are that Mr. Dodds
the installer of the first switch' board
should remain in the city until the second
switch board arrives. Firther that 200
new directories, and 500 telephone
contract forms be permitted, and that
telephone instruments be installed at the
pumping station and at the dam on the
mountain as recommended by the city
engineer.
Mr. Lowe is authorized to employ
more men when the new cable arrives,
and the committee also recommended
the payment of outstanding accounts
against the telephone company and that
the notes to the amount of $6000 given
by telephone stockholders to the Canadian Bank of Commerce be paid.

table
He Does Not Like Muskeg Dumping
On    Street*,
Referring to the matter of the granting
of W. L. Barker's petition to dump
muskeg on the street in connection
with the excavation work for the new
hotel to be erected on First avenue,
Aid. Barrow rose at last night's council
meeting to protest that this petition
had not been referred to the Streets,
Works, and Property committee.
"If it had been so," he added "I
should have objected to it, and presented
a minority report to the council. But
it was not, and this is the reason of my
roar tonight."
There was no discussion. Mayor and
council seemed awed into silence by so
rare an occurrence as a roar from Aid.
Barrow.
WHY  BUTT   IN?
"Let
Government
Says Aid.
Finish   Sewer,"
Mobley
Regarding the question of the city's
taking over the part of the sewer work
at present nearing completion, from the
Government Aid. Lynch explained to
Aid. Hilditch last night that it was
necessary to understand exactly where
they stood in the matter of the financial
aspect of the work. He had obtained all
wanted information from Mr. McMullen.
It was necessary that the Finance committee should have the position clear.
Aid. Pattullo thought the main thing
was that they should be sure they incurred no liability for cost of the work
to be completed.
"But the work is so nearly finished
now, " he said "why monkey with it?
Leave it to the government to finish.
It is getting on all right isn't it?"
"Yes" said the mayor "I think they
might as well go right ahead and finish
it. Our city engineer has enough to do
without adding to his duties the work
of supervision of this sewer."
It was agreed to file the report dealing with this matter. !
There is great activity in hotel building just now and each new structure
seems to be an improvement upon the
last one in size, design or some other
notable feature. These later buildings,
too, are more sunstantial and expensive,
denoting a confidence in the stability
of the city and a desire to build for the
needs of the future rather then to meet
present demands.
The one Peter Black is erecting at the
corner of First avenue and Seventh
street is an evidence of this. The roof
was finished this afternoon and one can
judge of the position it is bound to fill
as one of the leading hotels of Prince
Rupert for many years to come, from its
present appearance. Its proximity to the
site for the new passenger depot and its
commanding situation are features that
Mr. Black thought warranted him in
supplying as good a building and of as
permanent a character as possible, and
he seems to have succeeded in doing this.
The new Black hotel covers two full
lots and is three stories with a full
basement 60 x 100 feet, well-lighted and
eight feet in the clear. Wide sidewalks
of concrete will surround it on Seventh
street and Foret avenue and on each
there is a large entrance. On each upper
floor there are wide windows set out
over the pavement, six on the street and
four on the front. These will have window
seating so that the guests may sit and
look out over the bay or on the bustling
town.
The rear of the big structure is designed in the form of an "E", so that by
the construction of these two courts
every room is well supplied with natural
light and pure air.
The entrance hall on the avenue has
a grand stair case eight feet wide springing from the rear and to the right is the
office and reading room. Back of this
is a dining room which is to have small
party tables and accommodate about
fifty people without crowding. Great
attention will be paid to the furnishing
of the commodious kitchen, and it will
be supplied with the most modern of
appliances, with steam tables, butler's
pantry and so on.
On the other side of the entrance is
the buffet. This is thirty-eight feet long
by twenty-four wide and is to be fitted
up regardless. There is a billard room
that will accommodate three tables, and
a barber shop for the convenience of
guests.
The interior decorations and furnishings are planned on those of the New
Washington of .Seattle, and Mr. Black
says that when the hotel is running he
shall see that there are plenty of blooming plants and shrubs all over the house,
as he believes nothing gives such a grace
and homelike charm as plenty of flowers.
The ladies parlor on the first floor, which
is nineteen feet by twenty-four, will be
as pretty as it can be made, and the.same
of everyone of the forty-six bedrooms,
the very smallest of which will be nine
feet by fourteen. The halls, too, are
spacious and in every detail the house
promises to be really up-to-date and well
equipped for tourist trade. The whole
house will be steam heated from the
basement with radiators in every room.
Munro & Lalley are the architects and
Mr. Hilditch the contractor. Both firms
have good reason to be proud of their
work. Mr. Black says part of the rooms
will be ready for occupancy this week
but that the formal opening and house-
warming is to be marked by a grand ball
October 15th, if that date does not conflict with the monthly ball of the Kaien
Island club. Between times Mr. Black
says he can accommodate all Yukon
sourdoughs and their friends in at least
as good a way as they have been accustomed to. Peter was very popular in
the  Klondike and   will    undoubtedly
gain a large proportion of the trade from
the north for his new house.
GOVERNMENT  WHARF
Board   of  Trade   Endorses   Petition
Addressed to Premier McBride
At the general meeting of the board of
trade last night the petition started by
J. H. Rogers last month, praying the
premier to use his influence for the early
completion of the government wharf,
was brought forward. The petition was
signed by a large majority of the property owners of the city, and its general
tenor being well known to those present
the desire of Mr. Rogers to have it endorsed by the board and presented to the
premier upon his visit here was heartily
approved without any discussion.
It seemed to be generally expected
that the premier would be here some
time within the next two weeks.

Recommendations    of   Light   and

The report of the Telephone and Lighting committee to the city council last
night included the foUowing recommendations regarding the proposed city
lighting station:
The   committee    recommend    that
The question of the city's bargain with
the B. C. Tie and Timber Co., came before
the city council again last night, and as
the matter had been so far dealt with in
a manner informally, the mayor suggested that the council should adjourn
for a ten minutes recess while the telephone and lighting committee considered the matter of the offer of $5,500
to the B.C.Co., for their plant. This was
agreed to, and at the end of the recess
the committee reported to the council
confirming the matter. aSome discussion
followed.
Aid. Hilditch asked if the boilers were
in good shape. "If they are not, " he
���aid "this is just throwing away $4000."
He understood that at a previous examination the boilers had been considred
pretty bad. ,
Aid. Lynch reminded the meeting
that the city was under compulsion
to buy. The previous examination of
these boilers was not specially particular
as they were not thinking then of putting in such horse power. Besides, at
that time the company were asking
$1,500 more for their's. Aid. Mobley who
was capable of judging such plant had
examined the boilers now, and reported
them good. He thought the city had
made a good bargain.
The mayor said that he had at first

the B. C. Co., had been to have the boilers refitted and supplied with coal

city for $7,500. But the bargain preferred was to take the boilers as they
stood for $5,500 with the pole line etc.,
f the Board of I but not the dynamo. The reason he had
objected to the boilers before was because they were not what the city then
required.
Aid. Mobley said that as far as he
could judge the boilers were practically
as good as ever. In view of the fact that
they had to take two of them anyway
under charter, he thought it as well for
the city to take the whole lot. He did
not believe the boilers had been subjected
to more than normal heat during the fire.
Aid. Mclntyre said he would like to
be sure that the boilers were aU'right and
Secretary Stephens
Trade drew the attention of members*
who attended the general meeting last
night that quite a few members were
in arrears and at once so many stood up
ready to accept the challenge that he
asked for a recess of five minutes. During
that time he was busy taking in the money
putting off the writing of receipts until
later.
There were still a number of names
on the books figuring as delinquents
and by motion some of those who are
absentees were struck off. It was then
proposed to read the whole list, in accord- worth what the city was to pay for them,
ance with the bylaws Of the board. To "If they are to help us to get a lighting
this the secretary suggested that action system soon, that alone would make me
had better be postponed until the next favorable to the proposition" he added,

in consequence of such a notice, there
would be few names to read.
Welcomed    Magistrate    Back
Magistrate Carss returned this morning to his task of administering justice
to the delinquents of the city of Prince
Rupert, and presided over todays police
court.
J. E. McKechnie appeared before the
bar o pustice pleading guilty to a charge
of having been drunk last night. There
was nothing else for it. He was called
upon to find a five-spot and frills before
leaving a sadder and a wiser man.
Hospital Committee Will Meet
A meeting of the General Hospital
committee is to be called this week on a
day not yet fixed by A. Cuthbert the
organizing secretary. Several important
items of business will be discussed notably the question of furnishings and
hospital equipment, and the organization of a ladies' auxiliary. The hospital
building   makes   rapid   progress.

necessary delay over the purchase. If
the city waited for a test and perhaps
later for arbitration regarding the price
of the plant, time might pass until they
found themselves in the position of
having a new lighting plant in and the
compulsory purchase of these boilers
still on their hands.
Aid. Hilditch pointed out that a test
was necessary in any case before they
could start up with these boilers but
thought that the test could be carried
out by engineers in the city so as to
satisfy the government inspector so that
they could start up soon and have the
official inspection in course. Aid. Mobley
supported this view, and the matter of the
purchase of the B. C. Tie and Timber
Co's plant was confirmed by the council's
adoption of the Light and Telephone
committee's report.

FREE MILLING ORE ON SKEENA
t
Well Known Mining Expert Examines Ninemile Claims  and  Reports Favorably on This Well Mineralized Area.
Across the Skeena river and opposite
the Indian village of Gitwingak ore
which appears to be close to a free-
milling gold ore has been discovered by
J. H. Verschoyle and C. E. Ellaby in a
wide ledge, traceable continuously for
a considerable distance. Returns from
the first samples sent to Vancouver for
assay have been received by wire with
only the totals given, which were $24
per ton, assayed for gold, silver and
copper. Samples shown in town were
said to be the same as those sent to the
assayer and would hardly give more than
a strong trace in copper.
The formation is described as being
the usual thing in that|vicinity, sedimen-
taries with granitic intrusives; the
sedimentaries being altered into a quartzite along the point of contract with the
granitic rocks. If, upon the receipt of
complete returns, the values should be
found to consist in the greater part of
gold, and there is no evidence in the rock
of any considerable amount of silver,
the proposition should be one of worth.
Ninemile Rich in Mineral*
R. G. Steele, mining and mechanical
engineer, went over Ninemile mountain,
from the Silver Cup claims on the west
to the east end of the mineralized zone,
including the Sunrise and the Lead King
group owned by the Hazelton Ninemile
Mining Company, returning to town
at the end of last week. He went up
principally to examine the Silver Bell
and the claims owned by L. M. Woods
and others, near the Silver Cup basin.
Mr. Steele quite agrees with the
opinion of all mining men who have
visited the hill that the formation is
sedimentary, cut by granitic intrusions.
Four deep basins have been cut into
the north side of the hill, in the westernmost of which lie the Silver Cup group
and the claims of the Silver Bell group,
two in number, owned by S. B. Slinger
and others of Hazelton.
At the upper tunnel of the Silver Cup
men are at present sorting out and sacking
men are at present sorting out and sacking
for shipment the ore broken last winter
when this tunne was driven. Ore is
being sacked at the No. 2. tunnel as
well and this tunnel is being driven
ahead. The ore in both places is of a very
high grade. The next place visited was
the Silver Bell. Here he found a ledge
about two feet wide. Very little work
has been done, but the ore is of first
rate quality.
Passing over the dividing ridge where
are located the Barber and Barber Bill
group where a vein was seen from six
to eight feet wide with a varying width
of ore of good quality up to two feet,
the Sunrise group was reached, consisting of four claims, under bond to
Prince Rupert people for $60,000, and
where work is going ahead with four or
five men. Ore is being sacked from the
open cut in the ledge. While there he
saw them heave out a block of solid ore
weighing a ton and a half or more. A
little lower down the hill they are driving
a tunnel  to  intersect the same  vein.
In his own words Mr. Steele says:
"This, in my mind, is a splendid showing.
Going over the second ridge into the
next basin, the third, the Hazelton-
Ninemile Mining Company have a
staff of men prospecting or, in other words
following up a lead which I presume is
the same lead as the Sunrise, which
looks very promising. Over a small
ridge we then came into the fourth
basin, occupied by the Lead King, where
I was informed a shipment of ore had
been made to the Trail smelter with very
favorable results.
"Some thousand feet from where
the ore was taken for this shipment,
is a cross vein, thickness three feet
six inches, and exposed for about two
hundred feet, of very high grade ore.
This looks to be the most promising ledge
of any place on the mountain. At the
head of the basin and apparently at
the east end of the mineralized zone is
the Silver Pick group of three claims.
Development work carried on by the
locators has shown up some very high-
grade ore.
"Although the hill has been much
shattered on the surface my opinion
is that as depth is attained the broken
country will disappear and also that
the characteristics of the mineral will
change. When a foundation carrying
a higher percentage of lime is reached,
large replacement areas may be expected
to be found.
"Considering the difficulties of transportation and getting the ore from the
hill, I myself do not see any difficulty
at all in getting the ore from any of the
Ninemile properties. A good natural
grade can be obtained up Salmon river,
and the ore can be dropped from the
mines by 'gravitation to the railway.
"There is water power in abundance
for all the mines; timber on the lower
reaches of the mountain, and I am com
missioned to go and examine coal situated almost at the foot of the mines."
Development on Manson Creek
H. M. Beach and his son Geo. A.
Beach, of Ottawa, and J. B. Phillips
and A. Davis, of Toronto, left for Manson
creek on Tuesday. H. M. Beach is
manager for the Kildare Mining Co.,
with placer property on Manson creek.
Four miners were taken from Hazelton
and the party will endeavor to empty the
workings of water for a thorough inspection. A new and heavier plant is
needed for elevating the tailings, but
though working under adverse conditions
about $12,000 was taken out last year,
two-thirds of which came from a space
of bed rock forty feet square.
Looking For Good Property
E. B. Kirby, who was at one time
manager of the Centre Star and War
Eagle mines at Rossland for the Consolidated Co., and now registering
from St. Louis, went into Bulkley valley
this week and is understood to be looking
for good mining property.

RICH GALENA
LOCATED
SEALEY   SCENE   OF   GREAT   EXCITEMENT
In the Rocher de Boule mountains
directly behind the town of Sealey W. D.
Sargent has discovered a vein of galena
ore from three to eight feet wide and
extending for a thousand feet.
When this news reached Hazelton and
Sealey every prospector in town left
at once for the hills and for the next
month or so the range behind Sealey
will be carefully prospected and it is
safe to say that several big finds will
undoubtedly be made.
As any ore found in these mountains
will have to come out through the town
of Sealey it can not but help the growth
of the town, which at present is moving
ahead ao rapidly. Within the past few
weeks many lots have been sold in the
townsite and building is now going ahead
with leaps and bounds and before long
it will be impossible to secure a lot with
out paying double the present cost.

the completion of the transcontinental |
railway it cannot fail to become in a few
years one of the leading seaports of the
continent. The easy grades of your road
superior harbour facilities and shorter
ocean route wull make you this,"
Mr. Willison asked pointed questions
and weighed the answers carefully.
What politics was the Optimist? "I
see you have charged me in your issue
of today with being a lecturer. You
must have been thinking of Mr. Macdonald, the present editor of the Globe.
He is very able on the platform. I
rarely speak, merely deliver an address
occasionally for some club, and never
lecture."
"What kind of presses do you have
here?"   asked   Sir   Mackenzie.
When informed that the Optimist
had a new Babcock press he remarked
"That's a fine press but isn't it a little
in advance for so young a town? And
then you have two daily newspapers,
almost three, I am told, as the semi-
weekly may become one. This surprised
me. We have only two in Belleville.
I think a town gets on better with two;
one on each side; the editors can sharpen
their wits on each other when great and
burning questions are scarce.
"Yes, I still go to my old desk at the
office of my newspaper and pound out a
few thoughts.
"But I am not only surprised at your
newspapers I am really astonished to see
so rapid a growth in so young a place.
I was driven around yesterday by your j
mayor and was as much impressed by
what he said and the way he said it
as by what I actually saw. He showed
rne great wide streets with concrete
walks and boulevards with trees and
clustered lights, and it was all done by
just waving' his hand, first his right, then
his left.
"You really have a most surprising
city and I am pleased that I have had
the opportunity of seeing it at this stage.
I should have liked to have gone a ride
on the railway, as that would have been
an event to be remembered, but this
trip to' Stewart interfered and prevented it."
Mr. Willison said Stewart was really
his objective point, and he went there
in tho course of his duty as correspondent
of the London Times. He was sorry
he had not been able to spend a few days
in this city but he hoped to come again.
"One cannot fail to be impressed with
your city," he quietly remarked, "and
I am glad to find the mental pictures
I had formed of it so well verified. With

His Business in Departments
G. W. Arnott, the managing director
of the Rupert City Realty Co., has been
for some time considering several important rearrangements in connection
with the administratiin of the main
branches of the business under his control. The matter is now in its final stages
and Mr. Arnott is able to announce the
alterations contemplated for the expansion and speculation of the business
departments.
"I have arranged to appoint Mr. Wm.
McPherson of Williamstown, Ontario
to undertake the sole management of
the manufactories Agencies' Department"
said Mr. Arnott to-day. "I have decided to divide the business into three
distinctive departments, placing one
man in charge of each department who
will specialize in the work of his own department.

Estate, the Manufactories' Agencies,
and Insurance branches of the business.
The real estate section will be in my own
