Suttle, Oct. 3.���Mayor Hi Gill hur-
|jjd broke up his vacation when the
i reached him that Acting Mayor
��� Waddell had dismissed Chief of
Wappinger, as a result of his
Instigation into the graft charges. At
��� o'clock Friday the acting mayor
Itmoved Wappinger from office; at half
six o'clock Mayor Gill returned
I said that if Wappinger was guilty
Ihe would have to stay fired. At midnight
���the mayor briefly and bluffly stated, "I
���will reappoint Wappy in the morning."
fWhich he accordingly did.   He said:
'1 am in hearty sympathy with any
I tor inves igation of the men connected
Itith the city government. So far as I
lam personally concerned I know nothing
lof any system whereby law breakers
lhave eceived police protection. War-
I dill's intentions are all righ , but he
I lacks the experience to handle the

BERLIN NOW
MUCH QUIETER
BLOOD-AND-IRON METHODS ARE
NOW DEMANDED
Feu- That Police Wou d Fire on Any
Gathering Kept Street. Clear Laat
Night���Two Hundred Wounded
Still in the Hoapitala.
(Special to the Optimist)
Berlin, Oct. 3.���Since |one o'clock this
morning the city has been quiet. Yesterday the newspapers were united in
their demands that Bismarkian blood-
and-iron methods should be adopted to
stamp out the disturbances.
The authorities called upon all peaceable citizens to remain in their homes
last night, and it was generally feared
that the police would fire on any gathering in their attempts to put the disturbances down. As a consequence
there were no disorders.
About two hundred of the wounded
are still in the hospitals.
WAR CLOUDS
LOOMING UP
SITUATION    DECLARED    TO    BE
CRITICAL IN CHINA    .
Aaiatic Fleet of United Statea Under
Steam Ready to Sail to Hongkong
���Britiah Foreign Office Flooded
With Appeala for Protection.
(Special to the Optimist)
Manila, Oct. 3.���Acting under orders
from Washington large bodies of troops
have been placed on transports ready to
sail for China at a moment's notice.
Officials here regard the situation as the
most serious yet. The whole of the
Asiatic fleet of the United States has
been ordered to be in readiness to sail
for Hongkong. The bustle of preparation is now practically over and orders
to sail are momentarily expected.
London, Oct. 3.���British missionary
societies are flooding the foreign office
with demands that steps be immediately
taken to protect British subjects in
China. The conditions at Shanghai,
where former riots were reported, is said
to be most critical, and a general uprising means a great loss of life among
the foreigners in Hunan province.
Shanghai, Oct. 3.���Because of the
friendliness shown by foreigners to the
government the patriotic societies of
China believe the time has come to
throw off the yoke of their Tartar conquerors, and they are now on the verge
of starting a revolution with the object
of establishing a Mongol and anti-
foreign government.
TENDER  IS CAPSIZED
Feared That Many of the Crew May
Have  Been  Drowned
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Oct. 3.���The tender belonging to the battleship New Hampshire
capsized this morning. It is impossible
to know at present how many were
drowned. More than a hundred of the
crew were in the water. Further news
are awaited with great anxiety.
No Confirmation of Report
Ottawa, Oct. 3.���(Special)���There is no
confirmation of the report that President
Taft has invited Canada to set a date for
the re-opening of tariff negotiations.
DR. COOK OUT
IN INTERVIEW
NEW  YORK WORLD FINDS HIM
IN WEST LONDON
Explorer Declare. He Will Shortly
Return and Denounce Peary���
Will Prove That He Firat Diacovered
Pole Exactly Aa He Stated.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Oct. 3.���The World newspaper claims to have discovered Dr.
Cook in a dingy office of West London,
and it prints a copyrighted story today
which tells how Cook will return and
denounce   Peary.
Since his disappearance Cook has
visited Toronto, Halifax, Liverpool.
Gibraltar, Tangiers, Lisbon, Buenos
Ayres and across the continent back to
London. His wife was with him most
of the time. His children are at school
on the continent.
Cook says that he was in Albert Hall
at the time when Peary lectured there.
He was also a spectator at the king's
funeral.
The Doctor says: "I shall have a
message in a short time for those interested. This will prove that I discovered the North Pople exactly as I
said, on April 23rd, two years ago."
The interview concludes with a close
criticism of Peary's story |of his dash ot
the pole.
GELATINE USED
FOR EXPLOSION
POLICE   HAVE   NAMES   OF   MEN
SUSPECTED
Five Wicker Basket, of Unidentified
Remain.���Maaa Meeting Called for
Thia Afternoon at Which General
Otia May Be Leading Speaker.
(Special to the Optimist)
Los Angeles, Oct. 3.���The police are
in search of two men, L. Bryson and
William Morris, in connection with the
destruction of the Times printing office.
These men bought five hundred pounds
of eighty per cent, gelatine from the
Giant Powder company just before the
explosion. They said they were giong
to use the gelatine on a ranch at Auburn,
for cleaving stumps.
Five wicker baskets are at the morgue,
containing the remains of those impossible to identify. Three hundred men are
excavating the ruins for the remaining
bodies.
Thousands uncovered their heads when
under the direction of the fire chief,
two firemen placed a ladder against the
blackened and warped flagstaff of the
building and nailed a silken American
flag at half mast.
An attempt is being made to raise a
large reward in the endeavor to locate
the guilty parties.    _
Dynamite was found under the Zack
Chandler home. This bore the stamp
of the Giant Powder company.
A mass meeting of the citizens has
been called for this afternoon. It will
probably be addressed by General
Harrison Grey Otis.
Los Angeles, Oct. 3.���Five more
bodies were recovered early this after-
nioon. The residence of General Otis
and the Chandler house are being
heavily guarded.
Three arrests have been made. Martin
Hagan, Anarchist, was arrested last
night but the fact was not known until
a few minutes age.
GENERATOR HAS
ARRIVED AT LAST
CITY LIGHTING PLANT WILL BE
A  REALITY  SOON
Complete Equipment Waita at Vancouver Till Site Ia Ready and City
Prepared to Inatal It, and Turn on
the Juice.
The dark days are drawing rapidly
near, and the long nights. But citizens
of Prince Rupert need not be long
anxious about that lighting plant for
the city. The generator has arrived,
and the rest|of the equipment is at Vancouver ready for shipment as soon as the
site is ready, the boilers fitted and in
position, and the necessary arrangements
made for putting up the complete city
power plant.
Now that matters are in such a forward stage there can be no doubt that
good speed will be made with the
completion of the plant and turning on
of the much needed light.

WHARF WAS READY

Afternoon and Had to Wait Their
Turn for Wharf Room. The Union
and the Bannockburn.
FEARED RIOTS AT
LOS ANGELES
POLICE ARMED READY FOR ANY
EMERGENCY
Bomb Found Near Residence of
Owner of Wrecked Newspaper���
Feeling Between Union and Non-
Union Men Increaaed in Bitterneaa
(Special to the Optimist)
Los Angeles, Oct. 3.���The feeling between the union and non-union men is so
strong, following the destruction of the
Times ffice, that rio ing was feared all
day Sunday, but nothing of importance
took place. The finding of a bomb near
the house of General Harrison Grey
Otis, owner of the Times, led to special
detectives being told loff to (guard the
house and also the person of the man
who started the war Jon unionism in this
state.
Rifles and ammunition were secretly
conyeyed into the police stations last
night to be ready for any emergencies
that might arise, as the federation of
labor is alleged to have planned and to
have sworn to carry out further outrages
directed against the enemies of organized
labor.
The president of the International
Typographical Union states that the
explosion was not caused by dynamite
at all but by a defective gas pipe which
fed the linotype machines.
Sam Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor declares theft
unions fight now by peaceable means,
and he blames Otis for charging the union
with such a dastardly outrage.
The dead are now known to reach
fifteen, and there is likely to be a few
more.
The police declare they have positive
clues to the perpetrators|of the|outrage.
Appointed   Chinese   Commiasioner*
Ottawa, Oct. 8.���Gordon Grant and
J. W. Defaris have been appointed a
commission to inquire into the entry |of
false Chinese passports through Vancouver, which led to the suspension of
Inspector Bowell.
Three Killed During Week
Metz, Oct. 3.���(Special)���Aviator Haas" was 'killed -yesterday, he and his
mechanic being dashed to a he ground.
This is the third German aviator to
meet death during the week.
Harbor busines as brisk as that of
Sunday is the finest possible evidence
that Prince Rupert is already pre-eminently a seaport with a future. But the
briskness of the business, the arrival of
steamboat after steamboat, and the
impatient clamor of the sirens and hooters
as they announced their coming and
looked in vain for wharf room, is also
excellent evidence that it is about time
the new Government wharf was making
more rapid progress.
At least eight steamboats came and
went from the G. T. P. wharf yesterday.
The busiest time was the afternoon when
the G. T, P. steamboat Prince George
arrived and found no room for her at the
the wharf. Jus: at her heels the C. P. R.
steamboat Princess Ena steamed in and
going round the waiting Prince George
endeavored to establish a prior claim
to wharf room. It wasn't a case of
"Ladies First," however, and the Princess
had to wait for the Prince's pleasure.
The American boat had the wharf room,
but got her business done quickly and
pulled out, when the Prince George got
in with the expected mails.
Meanwhile to add to the lively appearance of the harbor the big handsome
freighter Bannockburn swung out into
mid-harbor lightened of her load of steel,
and amid the farewell booming of the
steamer sirens, she steamed off through
the en ranee her propellor thrashing up
the foam astern. Captain Dent of the
Bannockburn has been very popular in
Prince Rupert, his genial and hospitable
manner winning him many freinds.
The Bannockburn would have cleared
the port about twelve hours earlier, it is
said, had it not been for the stringency of
labor union law which forbade the
longshoremen from unloading the last
ninety-five rails from the steamer's hold
after six o'clock on Saturday night,     a
Considering the restricted wharfage
accommodation for them the various
steamers calling at Prince Rupert got
through their business with remarkable
facility and speed. The fact that the
harbor was occupied yesterday by the
Prince George, the Princess Ena, the
Lilooet Bannockburn, Bruno, Henriette,
Chieftain, a new steamer, and the
American steamer iB a pretty fair showing
in favor of the coming sea-ward prosperity of the city of Prince Rupert.
But the Government wharf needs to
be hurried on. Nothing apparently has
as yet been done towards starting the
construction of the reinforced concrete
piles which it may be mentioned cannot
be successfully built in frosty weather.
The winter will soon be here now, so it
may be safely predicted that the piling
work at all events of the wharf must
hang fire until spring.
CAMOSUN IN DRYDOCK
Will Probably Be on the Run Again
by tha End of the Week
James M. Rogers, local agent for th;
steamer Camosun, has received instructions by wire that the steamer
Camosun, having to |go into dry dock
because of an injury to her machinery,
will at the same tim; be enti ely refitted
and overhauled. She will have larger
berths pu in and other imprivements
made. THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST     a

Night���Two Hundred Wounded
Still in the Hoapitala.
(Special to the Optimist)
Berlin, Oct. 8.���Since |one o'clock this
morning the city has been quiet. Yesterday the newspapers were united in
their demands that Bismarkian blood-
and-iron methods should be adopted to
stamp out the disturbances.
The authorities called upon all peaceable citizens to remain in their homes
last night, and it was generally feared
that the police would fire on any gathering in their attempts to put the disturbances down. As a consequence
there were no disorders.
About two hundred of the wounded
are still in the hospitals.

(Special to the Optimist)
Manila, Oct. 3.���Acting under orders
from Washington large bodies of troops
have been placed on transports ready to
sail for China at a moment's notice.
Officials here regard the situation as the
most serious yet. The whole of the
Asiatic fleet of the United States has
been ordered to be in readiness to sail
for Hongkong. The bustle of preparation is now practically over and orders
to sail are momentarily expected.
London, Oct. 3.���British missionary
societies are flooding the foreign office
with demands that steps be immediately
taken to protect British subjects in
China. The conditions at Shanghai,
where former riots were reported, is said
to be most critical, and a general uprising means a great loss of life among
the foreigners in Hunan province.
Shanghai, Oct. 3.���Because of the
friendliness shown by foreigners to the
government the patriotic societies of
China believe the time has come to
throw off the yoke of their Tartar conquerors, and they are now on the verge
of starting a revolution with the object
of establishing a Mongol and anti-
foreign government.

DR. COOK OUT

NEW  YORK WORLD FINDS HIM
IN WEST LONDON
E> ^lorer  Declares  He  Will  Shortly
..turn    and    Denounce    Peary���
Will Prove That He Firat Diacovered
Pole Exactly Aa He Stated.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Oct. 3.���The World newspaper claims so have discovered Dr.
Cook in a dingy office of West London,
and it prints a copyrighted story today
which tells how Cook will return and
denounce   Peary.
Since his disappearance Cook has
visited Toronto, Halifax, Liverpool,
Gibraltar, Tangiers, Lisbon, Buenos
Ayres and across the continent back to
London. His wife was with him most
of the time. His children are at school
on the continent.
Cook says that he was in Albert Hall
at the time when Peary lectured there.
He was also a spectator at the king's
funeral.
The Doctor says: "I shall have a
message in a short time for those interested. This will prove that I discovered the North Pople exactly as I
said, on April 28rd, two years ago."
The interview concludes with a close
criticism of Peary's story |of his dash ot
the pole.
GELATINE USED
FOR EXPLOSION
POLICE   HAVE   NAMES   OF   MEN
SUSPECTED
Five Wicker Baskets of Unidentified
Remains���Maaa Meeting Called for
Thia Afternoon at Which General
Otia May Be Leading Speaker.
(Special to the Optimist)
Los Angeles, Oct. 3.���The police are
in search of two men, L. Bryson and
William Morris, in connection with the
destruction of the Times printing office.
These men bought five hundred pounds
of eighty per cent, gelatine from the
Giant Powder company just before the
explosion. They said they were giong
to use the gelatine on a ranch at Auburn,
for cleaving stumps.
Five wicker baskets are at the morgue,
containing the remains of those impossible to identify. Three hundred men are
excavating the ruins for the remaining
bodies.
Thousands uncovered their heads when
under the direction of the fire chief,
two firemen placed a ladder against the
blackened and warped flagstaff of the
building and nailed a silken American
flag at half mast.
An attempt is being made to raise a
large reward in the endeavor to locate
the guilty parties.    ,
Dynamite was found under the Zack
Chandler home. This bore the stamp
of the Giant Powder company.
A mass meeting of the citizens has
been called for this afternoon. It will
probably be addressed by General
Harrison Grey Otis.
Los Angeles, Oct. 3.���Five more
bodies were recovered early this after-
nioon. The residence of General Otis
and the Chandler house are being
heavily guarded.
Three arrests have been made. Martin
Hagan, Anarchist, was arrested last
night but the fact waa not known until
a few minutes age.
GENERATOR HAS
ARRIVED AT LAST
BUSY HARBOR
YESTERDAY P.M.
CITY LIGHTING PLANT WILL BE

Complete Equipment Waits at Vancouver Till Site Ia Ready and City
Prepared to Instal It, and Turn on

The dark days are drawing rapidly
near, and the long nights. But citizens
of Prince Rupert need not be long
anxiouB about that lighting plant for
the city. The generator has arrived,
and the rest|of the equipment is at Vancouver ready for shipment as soon as the
site is ready, the boilers fitted and in
position, and the necessary arrangements
made for putting up the complete city
power plant.
Now that matters are in such a forward stage there can be no doubt that
good speed will be made with the
completion of the plant and turning on
of the much needed light.
TIME   THE   NEW   GOVERNMENT
WHARF WAS READY
Steamers Came in Crowda Yeaterday
Afternoon and Had to Wait Their
Turn for Wharf Room. The Union
and the Bannockburn.
FEARED RIOTS AT
LOS ANGELES
POLICE ARMED READY FOR ANY
EMERGENCY
Bomb Found Near Residence of
Owner of Wrecked Newspaper���
Feeling Between Union and Non-
Union Men Increaaed in Bitterneaa
(Special to the Optimist)
Los Angeles, Oct. 3.���The feeling between the union and non-union men is so
strong, following the destruction of the
Times ffice, that rio ing was feared all
day Sunday, but nothing of importance
took place. The finding of a bomb near
the house of General Harrison Grey
Otis, owner of the Times, led to special
detectives being told loff to Iguard the
house and also the person of the man
who started the war [on unionism in this
state.
Rifles and ammunition were secretly
conyeyed into the police stations last
night to be ready for any emergencies
that might arise, as the federation of
labor is alleged to have planned and to
have sworn to carry out further outrages
directed against the enemies of organized
labor.
The president of the International
Typographical Union states that the
explosion was not caused by dynamite
at all but by a defective gas pipe which
fed the linotype machines.
Sam Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor declares tha*t
unions fight now by peaceable means,
and he blames Otis for charging the union
with such a dastardly outrage.
The dead are now known to reach
fifteen, and there is likely to be a few
more.
The police declare they have positive
clues to the perpetrators|of the|outrage.
Appointed Chineae Commiaaionera
Ottawa, Oct. 3.���Gordon Grant and
J. W. Defaris have been appointed a
commission to inquire into the entry |of
false Chinese passports through Vancouver, which led to the suspension of
Inspector Bowell.
Three Killed During Week
Metz, Oct. 3.���(Special)���Aviator Haas was killed yesterday, he and his
mechanic being dashed to a he ground.
This is the third German aviator to
meet death during the week.
Harbor busines as brisk as that of
Sunday is the finest possible evidence
that Prince Rupert is already pre-eminently a seaport with a future. But the
briskness of the business, the arrival of
steamboat after steamboat, and the
impatient clamor of the sirens and hooters
as they i-.nnounced their coming and
looked in vain for wharf room, is also
excellent evidence that it is about time
the new Government wharf was making
more rapid progress.
At least eight steamboats came and
went from the G. T. P. wharf yesterday.
The busiest time was the afternoon when
the G. T. P. steamboat Prince George
arrived and found no room for her at the
the wharf. Jus: at her heels the C. P. R.
steamboat Princess Ena steamed in and
going round the waiting Prince George
endeavored to establish a prior claim
to wharf room. It wasn't a case of
"Ladies First," however, and the Princess
had to wait for the Prince's pleasure.
The American boat had the wharf room,
but got her business done quickly and
pulled out, when the Prince George got
in with the expected mails.
Meanwhile to add to the lively appearance of the harbor the big handsome
freighter Bannockburn swung out into
mid-harbor lightened of her load of steel,
and amid the farewell booming of the
steamer sirens, she steamed off through
the en ranee her propellor thrashing up
the foam astern. Captain Dent of the
Bannockburn has been very popular in
Prince Rupert, his genial and hospitable
manner winning him many freinds.
The Bannockburn would have cleared
the port about twelve hours earlier, it is
said, had it not been for the stringency of
labor union law which forbade the
longshoremen from unloading the last
ninety-five rails from the steamer's hold
after six o'clock on Saturday night.
Considering the restricted wharfage
accommodation for them the various
steamers calling at Prince Rupert got
through their business with remarkable
facility and speed. The fact that the
harbor was occupied yesterday by the
Prince George, the Princess Ena, the
Lilooet Bannockburn, Bruno, Henriette,
Chieftain, a new steamer, and the
American steamer is a pretty fair showing
in favor of the coming sea-ward prosperity of the city of Prince Rupert.
But the Government wharf needs to
be hurried on. Nothing apparently has
as yet been done towards starting the
construction of the reinforced concrete
piles which it may be mentioned cannot
be successfully built in frosty weather.
The winter will soon be here now, so it
may be safely predicted that the piling
work at all events of the wharf must
hang fire until spring.
CAMOSUN IN DRY DOCK
Will Probably Be on the Run Again
by the End of the Week
James M. Rogers, local agent for th ���
steamer Camosun, has received instructions by wire that the steamer
Camosun, having to |go into dry dock
because of an injury to her machinery,
will at the same tinu be enti ely refitted

berths pu in and other imprivementa
made. THE   PRINCE   RUPER1    OPTIMIST

British Columbia Marine Railways have
applied for a subsidy for a dock of the

that the Bullens are associated with
some British hipbuilding yard in their
enterprises, which will involve the
expenditure of at least $3,000,000.

Large One.   Everything Shipahape
in the New Police Shack.
Ctrieja Constable McCarvell is a man
of adaptability and resourcefulneBs and
possesses as well the gift ot conten.ment
with things as they are, when they are as
they have to be, and the best possible is
being done with them.
Since Saturday the city's police chief
has been in occupancy with his staff, of
the new and palatial city Police Station
airily situated in the rear of tbe plain and
unpreientions Provincial Government
building in which for a space Chief
Constable McCarvell and his staff held
transitory sway.
The cells are there, and thei occupants,
but the Chief and his staff have been
promoted a little farther up the hill, ahd
they have been busily engaged in making
themselves at home this week end.
Their new premises are compact, and
not entirely lacking in comfort or convenience while they possess the great
advan age of a certain degree of privacy
for the conduct of those constabulary
concerns that necessitate tactful handling. The cheerful and unlooked for,
also unwished for, Buttinski will perhaps
be less conspicious now, thinks Chief
McCarvell, upon the station horizon.
Within the Chief's new domain things
are taking marvellously orderly shape.
The telephone is in, the pictures���that
fascinating gallery of criminal beauty,
the "lost, stolen or strayed" section of the
convict world as postrayed by the police
photographer���these works of art are
all adorning the walls behind Chief
Constable McCarvell's business-like desk.
The orderly rows of piled records are
there ready for instance reference; there
in a corner are certain grim looking guns
neatly labelled���the productions of past
cases awaiting their consignment to
Victoria. Bright and cheerful above
range the polished handcuffs, and the
pleasant, persuasive six-shooters, likewise that other gentle persuader, the
hardwood billet and truncheon of office.
The space is small but like all men who
have known the power of discipline and
profited by it to their own personal
efficiency, Chief Constable McCarvell
and his staff can make the most of
every inch of spate. With just a little
difference the present city Police Station
reminds oneiof the famous lines:
"The cottage was a thatched one,
The outside poor and, mean
Yet everything within that cot
Was wonderous neat and clean."
And would-be delinquents are warned
that Chief Constable McCarvell is just
as capable of dealing with misdoers in
his new premises as he was in the former
ones.

Aug 30���80d
Edson, Alta., .Sept. 27.���After nine
months of lone vigil in Jasper Park,
the dominion lorest reserve, which covers 5,000 square miles in the lower and
higher reaches of the Rockies, Constable
Richard Francis, mounted police, is to
be relieved and brought down to Edson.
In his place will be Constable H. G. T.
Wei s, who leaves here on Monday next
on the 121 mile journey that will take
him to Jasper House, and then on the
lonely police poet, where with his gun
and his dog he will guard the wild herds
of sheep and goats that roam about the
mountains in thousands. Grizzlies, deer
and elk will also be in his keep.
Constable Francis left Edmonton for
Jasper House last December, and since
that time he has acted as forest ranger,
sheepherder, wild animal keeper and
guardian of the law. Prior to his arrival at the park, the wild sheep and
goats were being slain by the hundreds.
With the coming of the G- T. P. right-of-
way clearers, mutton became quite a
favorite and rather plentiful, while the
sheep and goats seemed to be vanishing
in the air as it were, \. rowing less every
day. Constable Francis had orders to
seal all guns. This he did immediately
after his arrival, and it is safe to say
that there is hardly a rifle or other weapon in the hands of its owner in the
park today.
Whoever is sensible of his own faults
carps not at another's failings.
Thoughts, like diamonds, cost often
less trouble to find than to polish.
Bemichene.

GET DOWN TO BUSINESS
The financial muddle in which the city council finds itself brings about a cricis
in our municiapl history. The untangling of things and the ultimate way in which
the trouble is overcome will influence the city probably for all time to come. Instead, however, of wasting more time in criticism and explanation there should be
omething done to overcome the difficulties of the situation. If the city is to be
made a live one and a progressive one there is action needed now. Citizens and
council should set aside their differences at least for the time being and get down
to business. To raise sufficient funds on bonds in the regular way in order to carry
on the contemplated grading will take a long time and many months of ime have
already been lost. That bonds backed by the votes of the citizens could be satisfactorily floated is beyond question but what about the meantime? The Optimist
believes the wise course in the present situation is to go to the Provincial Government with the request that the Government back the bonds to the city to the extent
of about a quarter of a million dollars. The Government is deeply interested in
this city, both morally and financially, and it would not be out of keeping with their
policy to make such a guarantee. With such a promise from the Provincial Government no assessment difficulty could interfere with the city's credit. The Optimist
believes that with the matter placed before the Government in the proper way,
and by the proper persons that the assistance of the provincial administration can
he secured.   At any rate, it will not cost anything to try.
I-
CONGESTION AT THE WHARF
If Premier McBride had happened to take passage |on the Prince George he
would have seen the necessity of urging the completion of the government wharf.
He.would have had to wait on the Prince George while the Cottage City got out,
and then he would have seen the Princess Ena waiting for a berth. The latter boat,
owing to the delay, had not time to unload her local freight, as she was in a hurry
to catch the last boat down the Yukon with a large part of her cargo, so Prince
Rupert merchants will have to wait for their freight until she returns from Skagway.

Tba Flickerless Picture Show
The grading operations in active progress on Second avenue opposite the
Government Buildings and at the junction of Second avenue with the |old
plankway leading down to Center street
and the G. T. P. wharves, are causing1
quite a display of acrobatics on the part
of the pedestrians who want to use that
handy short cut as formerly.
There is no clause in McMordie's contract to provide paths temporarily for
accommodation of foot passengers across
his workings, nevertheless, a certain
devious and narrow plank path, dry and
more or less continuou , has been kept
open since the start of the operations.
But owing to the progress of the work,
this pathway has changed its position
from day to day, and as a result of
lack of observation, several pedestrians
have found themselves in precarious
predicaments out in the midst of the
mud and muskeg.
To set out along any plankway that
came handy was a perlious proposition
since you never could tell just where any
particular plank was going to lead you.
The other day a party of three ladies
whose complexions betrayed their origin
as somewhere in the Sunny South, got
rather rattled in the effort to negotiate
the maze of workmen's plankways. The
lightest lady (in tow senses) tripped
along and making a few elegant jumps
got safely on to terra firma. Not so
alas! the heavier damsels of dusky shade.
They tried one trail after another
only to reach time after time a wheelbarrow and a muskeg face with a bowing
and smiling Italian or Swedish laborer
at the end of it shouting directions freely
(and perhaps also cuss words) in his own
language.
The duskiest and heaviest of the ladies
got far separated from her companions,
and amidst a volley of directions and,
be it confessed, also a good deal of
derision on the part of the burly muskeg
heavers, she landed herself on a slippery
pedestal where like a bronze statue of
a lady of fashion she stood momentarily
expecting a plunge into the ttmddy
fluid below.
A workman���we think he was a susceptible son of the Emerald Isle, helped
her on to a plank which led her considerably nearer to safety but still there
was a leap of nearly four feet of slush
to negotiate between my lady and the
solid plank path to the wharf.
Amid the encouraging cheers���we had
almost written jeers���of the spectators
the final stage of the slippery crossing
was accomplished with a splash, and a
shriek of laughter, and then the show
waslover.
Mr. MeMordie was this morning
engaged in laying a broader pathway
for those who avail themselves of this
short cut, and it will now be possible
to get over it dry shod.

Messrs. Brin: Bros, of the Brin
Furniture stores have just leased their
present premises, including the Mclntyre
Hall and whole Mclntyre Block for a
number of years, with a view to a considerable expansion of their business in
the near future. The Arm intend to use
the Mclntyre Hall as part of their
department store, but as the arrangements for the expansion of the business
are not yet completed, and it is not
certain yet where department of the
business will be allotted to the hall
space, the hall will probably be available
for dances during the season.
For one forthcoming dance it certainly
will be available. That is the Hospital
Dance at present being organized by
the Dance Committee of the Hospital
Board Ladies' Auxiliary. Through the
kindness of Mr. H. K. Brin and his
brother members of the firm the hall
has been placed at the disposal of the
Ladies' Auxiliary Dance Committee for
this dance, entirely free of charge, in
order that the dance may produce the
maximum of result for the object in
view. ���. ���
The premises of the firm of Brin
Bros, will be closed for business Tuesday
and on the following Tuesday���two
complete days altogether, as this is
the season of the Jewish New Year
Festival, and these days are set apart
as public holidays amongst the Jewish
community. All business premises under
Jewish proprietorship in the city will be
closed on these days which are strictly
observed by the Jews throughout the
world.
Though the new police station is
small the first cases held within its walls
have been fairly serious���so much so
that it was at first intended to hold the
police court in the Provincial Government court room as ormerly. Quite a
little crowd assemebled there; but at
10, a.m., Magistrate Carss decided to
hold court in the new premises.
Accordingly, Harry Rown, a Swede,
and David Graham, whose name sounds
a wee bit Scotch, were both charged in
turn with having looked too fondly on
the '"bottled kind of Scotch". Graham
was fined the usual fine and costs. Rown
was called upon to fork out a twenty
dollar bill daintily embellished to the
tune of the necessary two for costs.
Rown had resisted arrest, and the
Magistrate warned him very sternly
that this sort of thing must be put
down, and that the next man who appears before the bar charged with
"Drunk and Resisting" will be in danger
of doing ten years for it.
Frank Plant also appeared charged
with having stolen jewelry to the value
of about|$50 from Katherine Washington,
a colored lady of sporting propensities
resident on Comox avenue, who gave
evidence regarding the jewelry, its value
and its disappearance.
The productions were a braclelt of
the expanding type, an opal ring, a
garnet ring, and a solitaire diamond
ring. The latter had been entrusted to
accused by complainant to be handed to
a jeweler for repair. It was valued at
$50, the .other articles at less sums.
Sergeant Regan gave evidence regarding the woman's complaint as to
the loss of her jewelry, and the arrest of
the accused in the house on Comox
avenue. Accused was searched at the
police station and the bracelet was found
concealed in his clothes below the knee.

Strenuous efforts were made during
the whole of Saturday for the recovery
of the todies of Alex. Allen, and Harry
Gilroy who were drowned on Friday
night in Shawatlans Lake. Many of
the old timers of the city who knew the
two young fellows well from the early
days of Prince Rupert went out to the
scene of the accident to lend their aid
in the sad task of dragging and blasting
for the bodies. The efforts, however,
were unsuccessful but a wide spread of
tackle was stretched over night in the
lake at the scene of the disaster and it
was hoped that by this means the bodies
might be recovered on Sunday. No
news to the effect that the recovery has
been accomplished had reached the city
on Sunday.
Up till one o'clock today the bodies
had not been recovered, aa far as the
city staff could tell. It was thought
that the rough weather on the lake last
night might have aided in hurrying
them to the surface, and news of their
recovery may come to hand tonight.

was in his blanket in the cell. The third
and most valuable he told the Sergeant
was in his pocket book where he had been
keeping it. He told the complainant
previous to his arrest that there was a
difficulty regarding the price of the
repair job.
Accused said nothing in answer to
the charge, but called Sergeant Regan's
attention to the fact that he had him told
about the diamond ring.

of important deals consummated in the
past few weeks. Mr. Steve Slinger who
has been prospecting the interior of
British Columbia from the Kootenay
north to Hazelton for the past ten years
has just sold through the F. T. Bowness

of claims on the Nine Mile Mountain,

Slinger will be in the city a few days
longer making arrangements with merchants for large consignments of merchandize in the early spring. He is very
much pleased with the outlook for the
upper Skeena country, particularly at*
regards mining and land and predicts a
big boom.
PLENTY OF LABOR
Not only from the coast but from
Alaska have laborers been recently
making for thia port. Two batches from
Cordova, one of them numbering forty,
came in during last week, being part of
the thousands working on the Northwestern railway there that have been
let out owing to the near completion
of the contract. By every boat there
have been a few scores landed and it
was learned at the office of Foley,
Welch & Stewart this morning that there
was no dearth of labor although many of
those sent in for the railway construction
work had chosen to work on the city
grading.
One thing which makes the contractors slow to put on more men than
present requirements is the difficulty
facing them of getting in the winter
supplies. The water continues at a
low stage and there is at present no
hopes of being able to get in all the
supplies now stacked in the warehouses
awaiting transportation.

HAYSTA   JUST   MAN
Resigned Presidency of Southern Pacific Because of Injustice
In the course of a strong, denunciatory
article on railway stealings by iniquitous
freight charges, published in Hampton's
Magazine, Charles Edward Russell tells
why Charles Nt, Hays resigned the presidency of the Southern Pacific in these
words:
"t will now recite for your entertainment a little chapter of history showing
that these abuses are not only flagrant
and intolerable but firmly rooted.
"C. P. Huntington died in 1900.
"At that time, one of the American
railroad executives most talked about
for sagacity, energy, skill, knowledge
and results was Mr. Charles M. Hays.
"Mr. Hays was selected to take the
place of Mr. Huntington as head of the
great Southern Pacific system. He
remained less than a year when, to the
amazement of the railroad world, he
suddenly resigned.
"Everybody knew there must have
been some truoble and all railroad men
knew that the trouble was not with Mr.
Hays. Almost at once he was snapped
up by the Grand Trunk, of which vast
and extending system he is still the chief
commander.
"Mr. Hays never publicly explained
his dissatisfaction, but according to close
freinds of his he began, soon after he
took the Southern Pacific, to examine
the freight tariffs by which the company
gathers the interest on all these securities.
"Mr. Hays is known to be a just man.
It seemed, clear to him that the rates
were indefensible and ought to be adjusted. He undertook to adjust them.
The power behind the railroad that,
being greater than all law and government, had for many years thriven upon
these exhortions, objected to the changes
Mr. Hays desired. Mr. Hays insisted;
the Power insisted. Finding that the
Power was supreme and that he could
not do justice, Mr. |Hays resigned."
