Price, Five Cents
���ARTY OF MILLIONAIRES CALL
Jacob Schiff in  His  Steam
Yacht, the "Ramona."
[Spent the Morning Looking Over
The Situation and Laughingly
Talked About Buying Lots���
General   Wilson's   Flat   Denial.
One of the most unassuming and care-
I free crowd of tourists that ever landed
I here was the  party  of Jacob  Schiff,
I the New York millionaire, which arrived
there   this   morning  on   Mr.   Schiff's
[yacht the Ramona.    Men and women
] were as easy to meet and as free in ther
I intercourse as if they were fellow pione-
I era and had always lived on the frontier
{instead of gilded drawing rooms and
I society splendors.    James J. Rogers was
Ion hand to meet the party as they
I landed and showed them all over the
city, doing the showman act with pretty
grace and aplomb, diplomatically dovetailing the romances of the past with the
Alladin lamp-like creations of the present. What he did in the way of business
he has not confided to the Optimist, but
} on the return to the vessel, Mrs. Loeb
observed to General Wilson.
"What have you been doing? I have
| bought a lot here".
"So have I," was the cherry reply of
the general, "but mine is a corner lot."
"So is mine," was the laughing
riposte, "and it is a better business
corner  than  yours  is."
It was quite a family party, consisting of Mr. and Mrs, Schiff, his brother-
in-law Professor Loeb, of Kuhn, Loeb
& Co, General Wilson, of Wilmington, Del
George E. Plimpton, head of the house
of Ginn & Co., school book publishers,
New York; Miss Wise, of Nashville,
Tenn., Edgar Salin, nephew of Mr.
Vfr. Schiff, a university student from
Frankfort, Germany; and Captain D. H.
Jarvis, president of the Northwestern
Cannery company.
The Ramona was especially fitted up
for the party at Seattle and, while its
exterior is not such as to strike particular attention, its interior fittings are of the
finest money can buy. On the way to
Alaska the boat put in at all the way
ports until Cordova was reached and
then cut across to Skagway. There the
party went over the White Pass and
down the Yukon as far as Dawson.
It was intended to follow the Yukon to its
junction with the sea at St Michael,
and the Ramona was ordered to meet
them there.    But the weather proved

SCARCITY   OF   LABOR.
New  Immigration Regulation Prob-
Not Yet in Force.
General Passenger Agent Hinton
remarked last njght that when he left
Seattle and Vancouver the immigration agents had not received notification from the department at Ottawa
that railway laborers were to be allowed
to enter without the money qualification or that they must come direct from
the country of their nativity. Probably
by this time they had, but it took time
to disseminate such official information.
"When the new ruling of the immigration department begins to be acted upon
at the various ports it will work a great
improvement in railway construction,"
he observed. "All over the country
there is a scarcity of men for such work
and at the same time a large number of
foreign laborers on the Pacific coast
who are earnestly desirous of obtaining
work. This action of the government
will enable us to get many of these men
nn the Grand Trunk construction and
the completion of the transcontinental
will be consequently hastened."
CRUISER   SHEARWATER
May Take Part in the Reception to
Sir  Wilfrid  Laurier
Mayor Stork and Aid. Pattullo interviewed Commander Vivian of the
cruiser Shearwater, yesterday and requested him to remain in the harbor
until August 20th and to take part in
the reception  to  Sir  Wilfrid  Laurier.
The Commander expressed his pleasure in
complying with the request, but stated
that he was due to be at Comox on that
date. He would however, cable to head
quarters and request that his orders be
altered to comply with the request
of the city. If permission is received it is
expected that a body guard of mariners
will be on hand as well as the local scouts.

GOING AFTER TOURIST TRADE
What Grand Trunk is Doing
to Capture It
Mr. Hinton Declares Himself in
Favor of Prince Rupert Granting
Licenses���Tourists Bring In Capital and Build Up Cities.
"It is the business of transportation
companies to create tourist traffic;
it is the business of the community to
see they get the benefit of that traffic."
This was the declaration of W. P.
Hinton, general traffic manager of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, who has been here
for a few days on an official tour of inspection. Rosy and sauve, is Mr.
Hintin, with all the bon homme of a
capitalist out for a vacation yet far-
seeing and businesslike and "bright as
a steel trap." If be were nbt all this and
more he probably would not be occupying so high a position in what is shortly
to be the greatest transportation company of the world.
Chatting at the Inn last night, just
before he left for Vancouver on the
Prince Rupert, Mr. Hinton continued:
"The tourist business has become the
most important part of a transporta
tion system, and we are bending every
effort to build up as large a one as
possible. The company is not only
advertising very extensively, but js>.
every way that tends to the comfort, ot
travel, that will entertain and interest
the travellers, it is sparing no pains,
and expense to cater to them. We think
we have in this run to Prince Rupert,
one of the finest routes for pleasure
travel in the world, and we hope to make
the general public think so.
"If we bring you the tourists it is for
you to treat them well so as to make a
good impression.' This is your end of
the business. Not that the company may
benefit in increased business but that
the city may benefit. All large communities have grasped the fact that by a
cultivation of the tourist trade they are
doing more to build up their cities then
can be done by any other means. They
have a publicity bureau as you have and
supplement the advertising of the transportation companies in various ways.
Also, they have arrangements for the
reception of the tourists, so as to jolly
them along.
"Now !n Prince Rupert the issuing of
a few licenses would do no harm in this

Smashed Delivery Van Top
The Stewart and Mobley delivery van
turned turtle yesterday at the corner
of Eighth street and Comox. One of the
horses stepped on a rail which turned
and threw thc animal, the van left the
plank foad and turned topsy-turvy.
The top was smashed but the pretty
little team of greys were uninjured except for a few scratches.
GRADING TO BE DONE BY CONTRACT
MANN  IS ENTHUSIASTIC
R.   Talpey   Back   From   Stewart
And Reports Good Work
Meeting of the Magnates
There was a flutter of excitement
in financial circles yesterday when the
five bank managers of the city met at
11 a.m. on the corner of Wall street and
Broadway. The discovery was made
by a prominent merchant and a contractor who were fixing up a deal in the
real estate office known as "26 Broadway"
The result of the conference of financiers is not known but it is suspected
there were a few sales in Rickies put
through.
Returns   From   Stewart
J. R. Talpey returned from Stewart
last night, after an examination of his
mining properties on Bitter creek. He
said that everything was loooking well
W that he was returning in a few daya
un'l then would be able to say more
about it. He says Mr. Mann is immensely
leased with his interests in Portland
Canal, particularly the outlook for the
fining properties.
Grading in section one caused another
long discussion at last night's council
meeting and near tha close of the debate
there were a few fire-works about the
size of the two for a cent kind. There
were no serious results, however, and
the services of the fire department were
not required. The trouble arose over
the day labor and contract systems.
Aid Hilditch was the one who advocated
the former and as he saw he was losing
ground he said some things which Alf.
Mobley and some of tbe others took
exception to.
The engineer's report as presented at
the meeting previous was adopted with
one or two changes and the work will
proceed on Second avenue as soon as
the necessary forms can be gone through.
A report of the streets, works and
property committee was received on the
Engineer's report, recommending that
it be adopted with a few changes relative to the assessment of corner lots,
but made no recommendation as to
the system of doing the work.
Aid. Hilditch said the committee
could not agree on the contract system
and day labor system for doing the work.
He would therefore move that the engineer be instructed to prepare to go on
with the work under the day labor
system. In speaking of his motion he
made a place for the day labor system
and pointed out that thet system was
purer than the contract system. Not
ten per cent of the cities of Canada and
the United States used any other system.
He said that the contract system was
more likely to produce graft than any

Over Pre-election Promises ���
Engineer's   Report Was  Adopted.
other. After all, we are a self-governing
of people in Prince Rupert, and foreigners
cannot do that and will degenerate the
white race half way to their level.
In his motion he included a clause
providing an eight hour day and a
minimum wage of $3.00.
Aid. Pattullo moved the adoption
of the report. Aid. Naden seconded it
and it carried.
The Streets Committee made no
recommendation as to what system
should be adopted in carrying out the
work and that question may be settled
afterward.
In reference to the system of doing
the grading Ald.��Lynch again advocated
the contract system because he thought
it was the best and to bring tbe matter
to a head he moved that the engineer
be instructed to prepare to have the
work done by contract and to provide
in the specifications for an eight hour
day with a minimum wage of $3.00
and that no Asiatic labor be employed.
In reference to the day labor policy
Aid. Pattullo said that there was no
fear of graft, and he believed that at
this time the work would be done cheaper
by contract than by day labor, and that
tha city had no time to look after men
and foremen.
The above motion re the street grading
referred to Second avenue only, although
the city still reserves the right to do the
work by d:y labor in case the tenders
are found t�� be too high.
Aid. Lynch said he would be perfectly willing that the city engineer
should sjimit a tender also.
Aid. Mobley said that was the usual
procedure in all cities and from a conversation with the city engineer he
presumed that the city engineer intended to do that anyway.
The motion as amended was that the
engineer be instructed to prepare plans
and specifications for grading section
one and that he call for tenders as
soon as possible and that he put in a
tender himself, and that a clause be
inserted providing an eight hour day
and $3.00 as the minimum wage.
Aid. Hilditch made some insinu-
tions as to the aldermen breaking their
pre-election promises.
Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Mobley replied in a warm way that Aid. Hilditch
was too free with his insinuations and
it was ill-becoming any aldermen. When
it came down to pre-election promises
Aid. Hilditch would not appear in such
glowing colors himself said Aid. Mobley.
Aid. Naden and Aid. Lynch also
called   the  day-labor   advocate   down.
Aid. Smith said thai a station gang
of good Swedes or Italians would do
more than a dozen men under a contractor. The work would also be done
for 60 per cent of the cost.
The motion was then put and carried.
J. R. Tajpej��,' real estate and mining
broker, returned from Stewart last night.
He says the mining camp is looking good
now. There about 200 men working on
the right of way at 53c per hour and they
have eieven miles cleared. The grading
will be easy. Sol. Cameron, the contractor has several fine camps along the
grade. A heavy dock is being put up
about a mile out on the flats for the unloading of the steel rails now being
shipped from Rupert. The piling for the
approach to the ahore ia proceeding
slowly.
D. D. Mann who has been in the camp
for thc past week was moft enthusiastic
over his many purchases there and looks
upon Stewart with great favor. He said
the railroad would undoubtedly go
through to Edmonton.
Mr. Talpey said the work on the various mines was proceeding but it would
be some months yet before the big
mines started shipping.
At Bitter Creek there is quite a settlement and about 200 residents in the
camp. The hills are full of prospectors
and new finds are being made daily.
Interior Strawberries Rip*
Shipments of strawberries from Lakelse
District and from Hazelton have been
received in this city this week and are
finding a ready market. The berries are
large, sweet and juicy, with a flavor
such as can only be gotten in berries
maturing slowly in a temperate climate.
The Skeena River districts are going
to be famous for their berries.
Rifle   Club   Dead
It is rumored among those who are
fond of shooting that the Rifle Association has passed to the great beyond.
Nothing whatever has been heard of
It for many weeks and all the fine weather
of the summer has been allowed to slip
by without a shoot. This weather is
ideal and a large number of the members
could be got together on the ranges if
some notice was Bent out by the officer
in command. THE    PRINCE    RUPERT   OPTIMIST
Perhaps you are not
buying of us.
Perhaps it hasn't occurred to you that we can
make it to your interest to do so.
We honestly believe we
can.
Perhaps you have a reason for not giving us
a share of your business.
Are you willing to tell
us what your reason
is?
We want to know our
faults.
We sell at lowest prices
consistent with quality.
Our line is very complete. Our customers
tell us so.
Almost every boat brings

ADVERTISING
FOR A MAYOR
GERMANY'S METHOD OF SECURING   CIVIC   EXECUTIVE
Saves Election Expense* and May
Lessen Graft System Alderman
Lynch is so Afraid of Seeing Established in City of Prince Rupert.
Berlin, July 25.��� Following the
Herman theory that the best way to fill
a municipal office ia to hire the best
available expert in the particular line of
work to be done, the city of Magdeburg,
by the president of its council, is advertising conspicuously in prominent German newspapers:
"The place of mayor of Magdeburg is
vacant. The salary is 21,000 marks per
year, including the rental of a dwelling
in the city hall. Besides the salary the
incumbent will receive 4000 marks
($1000) for his official expenses. Candidates should apply before Sept. 1."
The practice of hiring official mayors
is no novelty in Germany, where sometimes two cities bit in competition with
each other for a capable man. The
Magdeburg advertisement attracts special attention, as it is the first large city
to advertise in filling so important an
office. The retiring mayor, Dr. Lentz,
was lately promoted to be Russian minister of finance.
ENTERTAINMENT COMMITTEE
Met   in   City   Hall   and   Organized
For   Their   Work
The entertainment committee in connection with the reception of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and party who visit here next
month, was held in the city hall last
night when several sub-committees were
organized. The sub-committees will
look up several proposals in the way of
entertainment and will report back at a
meeting to be held at an early date.
No  Council   Meeting
There was no meeting of the city
council last night. Several of the members
had a meeting on in connection with the
Laurier reception. The city fathers will
convene tonight as usual.
Trial    Tomorrow
G. T. Williams will appear before the
magistrate tomorrow morning for a
preliminary learing on a charge of firing

From here the Belle of Scotland goes
to Portland, Ore., to load four million
feet of lumber for. China for the Chinese
Import and Export Lumber company.
Bay Team Runs Away
Beattie's fine team of bays were
feeling in a frisky mood Tuesday morning and started from Second avenue
down Centre street at a wild burst of
speed. Nobody was hurt, the people
clearing the way in short order. But
the team came near having a salt water
bath. The dray fortunately struck the
corner of Mr. Crandall's office and the
team came to a full stop right on the
edge of the wharf.
School Board
A meeting of the Public School Board
will be held at the new school this afternoon for the purpose of inspecting the
building and giving the contractor
ideas on details such as painting,
graining etc.
Police   Court
There has been nothing doing in
police court circles for the past two or
three days. Chief McCarvell and his
men deserve much credit for the way
they are handling their end of the town.
Civic   Holiday
The very warm weather the past few
weeks has caused a number of the
business and professional men to wish
for a civic holiday. One man stated this
morning that the mayor should proclaim a holiday in the near future.

Prince Rupert, Mr. Hinton continued:
"The tourist business has become the
most important part of a transporta
tion system, and we are bending every
effort to build up as large a one as
possible. The company is not only
advertising very extensively, but i*
every way that tends to the comfort, ot
travel, that will entertain and interest
the travellers, it is sparing no pains
and expense to cater to them. We think
we have in this run to Prince Rupert,
one of the finest routes for pleasure
travel in the world, and we hope to make
the general public think so.
"If we bring you the tourists it is for
you to treat them well so as to make a
good impression. This is your end of
the business. Not that the company may
benefit in increased business but that
the city may benefit. All large communities have grasped the fact that by a
cultivation of the tourist trade they are
doing more to build up their cities then
can be done by any other means. They
have a publicity bureau as you have and
supplement the advertising of the transportation companies in various ways.
Also, they have arrangements for the
reception of the tourists, so as to jolly
them along.

a few licenses would do no harm in this

Smashed Delivery Van Top
The Stewart and Mobley delivery van
turned turtle yesterday at the corner
of Eighth street and Comox. One of the
horses stepped on a rail which turned
and threw thc animal, the van left the
plank road and turned topsy-turvy.
The top was smashed but the pretty
little team of greys were uninjured except for a few scratches.
MANN  IS ENTHUSIASTIC
J.
R.   Talpey   Back   From   Stewart
And Reports Good Work
GRADING TO BE DONE BY CONTRACT
Meeting of the Magnates
There was a flutter of excitement
in financial circles yesterday when the
^ve bank managers of the city met at
11 a.m. on the comer of Wall street and
Broadway. The discovery was made
by a prominent merchant and a contractor who were fixing up a deal in the
rral estate office known as "26 Broadway"
The result of the conference of financiers is not known but it is suspected
there were a few sales in Rickies put
through.
Returns   From   Stewart
J- R. Talpey returned from Stewart
last night, after an examination of his
mining properties on Bitter creek. He
wid that everything was loooking well
but that he was returning in a few days
and then would be able to say more
'���'bout it. He says Mr. Mann is immensely
Pleased with his interests in Portland
Ci��al, particularly the outlook for the
mining properties.
Grading in section one caused another
long discussion at last night's council
meeting and near tha close of the debate
there were a few fire-works about the
size of the two for a cent kind. There
were no serious results, however, and
the services of the fire department were
not required. The trouble arose over
the day labor and contract systems.
Aid Hilditch was the one who advocated
the former and as he saw he was losing
ground he said some things which Alf.
Mobley and some of the others took
exception to.
The engineer's report as presented at
the meeting previous was adopted with
one or two changes and the work will
proceed on Second avenue as soon as
the necessary forms can be gone through.
A report of the streets, works and
property committee was received on the
Engineer's report, recommending that
it be adopted with a few changes relative to the assessment of corner lots,
but made no recommendation as to
the system of doing the work.
Aid. Hilditch said the committee
could not agree on the contract system
and day labor system for doing the work.
He would therefore move that the engineer be instructed to prepare to go on
with the work under the day labor
system. In speaking of his motion he
made a place for the day labor system
and pointed out that thet system was
purer than the contract system. Not
ten per cent of the cities of Canada and
the United States used any other system.
He said that the contract system was
more likely to produce graft than any

Engineer's   Report  Was  Adopted.
other. After all, we are a self-governing
of people in Prince Rupert, and foreigners
cannot do that and will degenerate the
white race half way to their level.
In his motion he included a clause
providing an eight hour day and a
minimum wage of $3.00.
Aid. Pattullo moved the adoption
of the report. Aid. Naden seconded it
and it carried.
The Streets Committee made no
recommendation as to what system
should be adopted in carrying out the
work and that question may be settled
afterward.
In reference to the system of doing
the grading Ald^ynch again advocated
the contract system because he thought
it was the best and to bring the matter
to a head he moved that the engineer
be instructed to prepare to have the
work done by contract and to provide
in the specifications for an eight hour
day with a minimum wage of $3.00
and that no Asiatic labor be employed.
In reference to the day labor policy
Aid. Pattullo said that there was no
fear of graft, and he believed that at
this time the work would be done cheaper
by contract than by day labor, and that
tha city had no time to look after men
and foremen.
The above motion re the street grading
referred to Second avenue only, although
the city still reserves the right to do the
work by d^7 labor in case the tenders
are found t > be too high.
Aid. Lynch said he would be perfectly witling that the city engineer
should s'ji'mit a tender also.
Aid. Mobley said that was the usual
procedure in all cities and from a conversation with the city engineer he
presumed that the city engineer intended to do that anyway.
The motion as amended was that the
engineer be instructed to prepare plans
and specifications for grading section
one and that he call for tenders as
soon as possible and that he put in a
tender himself, and that a clause be
inserted providing an eight hour day
and $3.00 aa the minimum wage.
Aid. Hilditch made some insinu-
tions as to the aldermen breaking their
pre-election promises.
Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Mobley replied in a warm way that Aid. Hilditch
was too free with his insinuations and
it was ill-becoming any aldermen. When
it came down to pre-election promises
Aid. Hilditch would not appear in such
glowing colors himself said Aid. Mobley.
Aid. Naden and Aid. Lynch also
called   the   day-labor   advocate   down.
Aid. Smith said thai a station gang
of good Swedes or Italians would do
more than a dozen men under a contractor. The work would also be done
for 60 per cent of the cost.
The motion was then put and carried.
J. R. Tsf pej��,' real estate and mining
broker, returned from Stewart last night.
He says the mining camp is looking good
now. There about 200 men working on
the right of way at 53c per hour and they
have eieven miles cleared. The grading
will be easy. Sol. Cameron, the contractor has several fine camps along the
grade. A heavy dock is being put up
about a mile out on the flats for the unloading of the steel rails now being
shipped from Rupert. The piling for the
approach to the shore ia proceeding
slowly.
D. D. Mann who has been in the camp
for the past week was mort enthusiastic
over his many purchases there and looks
upon Stewart with great favor. He said
the railroad would undoubtedly go
through to Edmonton.
Mr. Talpey said the work on the various mines was proceeding but it would
be some months yet before the big
mines started shipping.
At Bitter Creek there is quite a settlement and about 200 residents in the
camp. The hills are full of prospectora
and new finds are being made daily.
Interior Strawberries Ripe
Shipments of strawberries from Lakelse
District and from Hazelton have been
received in this city this week and are
finding a ready market. The berries are
large, sweet and juicy, with a flavor
such as qan only be gotten in berries
maturing slowly in a temperate climate.
The Skeena River districts are going
to be famous for their berries.
Rifle   Club   Dead
It is rumored among those who are
fond of shooting that the Rifle Association has passed to the great beyond.
Nothing whatever has been heard of
It for many weeks and all the fine weather
of the summer has been allowed to slip
by without a shoot. This weather is
ideal and a large number of the members
could be got together on the ranges if
some notice was sent out by the officer
in command. THE  PRINCE    RUPERT    0[PfIMIST

Letters to the Editor
Why   the    Delay?
Editor of the Optimist,���"What are
they waiting for?" We hear this expression on every side by the working
man. Is the city council really going
to spend the money or do they want
a new bunch of working men to get it
later? Most of us are tired waiting and
it takes money to live in Prince Rupert.
I inquired of one of the aldermen the
cause of the delay and he says there are
more "rules" to be conformed to before
the work begins: Advertising, or something���the same old story. In the mean
time the finest weather of the season
is going to waste.
Is there no man in the council with
some initiative? Did you ever know
anybody or anything that amounted to
much that worked too much by the
"rule". Step up, Mr. Napoleon, we are
waiting for you!
A WORKINGMAN
Lives  Lost  By  Explosions
The shocking loss of life in connection with the manufacture and
use of explosives has roused the Department of Mines to take vigorous
action in the matter. The services of
a British expert have been secured
to investigate the cause and report
on a remedy. The large number of
men employed in railroad constru-
tion, mining and quarrying are particularly exposed to this danger, and
every possible precaution should be
taken to prevent a repetition of the
numerous fatalities recorded within the
past few months.
General Manager Coming
Advices have been received here that
E. J. Chamberlin, general manager of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, will reach
Vancouver on August 20th, on an inspection trip of the Pacific division, extending inland from Prince Rupert.
It is probable that he will accompany
the Laurier party north.

Dorchester, Mass., July 25.���So val- j
uable   are   products   of   the   brain   of j
Daniel S. Hickey, jr., of 95 Savin Hill I
avenue,   Dorchester,   that  a  syndicate
is taking steps to patent the brain of
the young man.
Papers have been made out and are
to be forwarded to the Patent Office
at Washington with the end in view
that no one shall be allowed to infringe on the work of the young man
which is now merely in his head.
Mr. Hickey has invented t many appliances in use at present, but hitherto he has felt that with sufficient financial backing he would be able to
overcome some of the difficulties he
has met. The syndicate has sufficient
belief in his possibilities to guarantee
him the backing if he will only supply the products of his brain.
The syndicate is to take the greatest
of precaution against their money
being wasted, and the papers to be
sent to Washington contain some remarkable provisions.
He is to be kept from "joy riding"
or aeroplaning by a provision which
���ays that "said Hickey further agpees
that he will ride on none but modern
safety guarded conveyances." The
agreement further provides that Hickey
shall forfeit $10,000 if he shall withdraw
or violate without due course any
article of the agreement.
Mr. Hickey has working models of
many of his inventions, which include
1 two improvements on the telephone,
' a flying machine, a concrete form
i which will do away with much steel
i construction, and a steam valve which
! he claims will enable a steam engine
! to develops nearly twice the power it
| does at present by the use of the ex-1
haust steam.
Much discussion is going on among'
the patent attorneys of Boston as to
the outcome of the novel attempt at
"moral patenting," some taking the
ground that such a thing is impossible
and others saying that there is no rea-
son why the patent should not be j
granted.
Mr. Hickey is a well known young
man in Dorchester and has been noted
as one of the best end men in the
minstrel shows of the Catholic Club
of Dorchester.

The epidemic which Aid. Lynch fears in section one will probably be a pestilence

If the merchant who does not advertise is known as "a dead one", what shall
we say of a city council that refuses to use the daily papers.
It is now one thousand seven hundred and seventy-six hours since Mayor Stork
made his famous boast that he would close the blind pigs in twenty-four hours.
In demanding that old maids be employed in the telephone central Aid. Mobley
has brought upon himself the indignation of the thousands of lone bachelors in this
city. What is a telephone for, anyway?
The temperature 81 in the shade, the sea breeze, the panararaa of limpid water
and green islands, the sweetest ozone, and the woodsie smell are not likely to chase
anyone away from Prince Rupert,���the city beautiful.
The city council have a 15 million assessment roll and a 15 mill rate yet they
cannot afford to advertise in the daily papers. They ought to get one of the coal
merchants to give them some pointers on how to squeeze money out of the people.
Less than one third of the population of Prince Rupert Lives in section one,
but 90 per cent of the total population use the section one streets and walks every
day. Who should pay for the streets; the people who use them or those who own
the land adjacent to them?
SECTION ONE STREET GRADING
Estimates of Rock and Earth
Cuts and Fills.
City Engineer* Report Which Caused All the Discussion in the
Council For Last Two Nights.���
It Was Finally Passed.
City Engineer Davis made a report
on the proposed improvements in section one, and the document is given
below in full, as it was this report that
caused so much discussion in the
council the last two meetings:���
Re proposed improvements of section one��� In accordance with a resolution passed by the city council on
July 11th. with reference to the proposed improving of Section one. I beg
to state that I have examined into the
subject dealt with by the resolution
and would recommend undertaking the
proposed improvement.
The nature of the proposed work is
the grading of the streets in Section 1
and the building of the necessary culverts.
The total estimated cost of the work
is $400,000.
The probable lifetime of the work is
at least 20 years.
The whole of Section 1 will be benefited.
Half the cost should be assessed
according to frontage, and half according to the assessed value of the lots.
The distribution of the amount to
be levied is as shown in Frontage
Assessment book for Section 1, on file
in office of City Assessor.
The whole cost should be charged
against property benefitted. In the case
of lots owned by the B. C. Government
which are not now assessable, but
which become assessable when sold, I
would advise assessing them at the same
rate as those owned by private indi
viduals, tbe assessment until sold to be
paid by the city, because if these lots
are exempted from the assessment now,
a party purchasing one next year
would receive the advantage of the improvement without any charge whatever.
Remarks
Before this work of grading the
streets can be proceeded with, a number
of questions demand consideration.
The distribution pipes of the water
system are laid practically parallel with
the surface of the ground and in many
cases on a foundation that is not firm.
The location of these pipes should be
examined in detail, and such changes
as are required to make them as permanent as stave pipes can be, should be made.
Sanitary sewers.���On many of the
streets in this section, sewers have not
been laid. In some places a large rock fill
over the place where the sewer must
eventually be laid, would greatly increase the cost of the sewerage work. In
these cases it is therefore important that
sewers should be laid before any deep
fills are made
Storm sewers.���Natural water courses
courses cross and recrosa the streets in
section one. These water courses must be
provided for while the grading is going
on, and in such a way that the work done
will ultimately become a part of the
system of storm sewers.
The work which I have outlined
cannot be properly considered and plans
prepared for execution in a short time.
Recognising the advisability of getting
work of some sort started at the earliest
possible date, I have first considered
Second avenue, a road on which there is
already considered sewerage, and have
had estimates made of quantities uf
excavation and embankment, so, that
if it is considered advisable, I could have
plans and specifications in readiness for
contractors to tender on this portion
as soon as required.
I would recommend that as soon as
the plans and specifications are completed
that tenders be asked for the execution of the work on Second avenue.
Second Avenue Specifications
The   engineer's    specifications     for
Second avenue are:-
Rock excavation cu. yards     62,363
Earth excavation cu. yards    13,090
Embankment   cu. yards    53,035
The sewer and water mains will be
provided for as the work progresses.
NO SPECIAL
LEGISLATION
ROCK CANNOT BE REMOVED AT
CORNER THIRD AND SEVENTH
City Engineer Preparing a Report on
��� Temporary Lighting Plant���
Fire Proof Safe to Be Purchased���
Buildings to Be Moved Off Streets.
Several minor matters were put
through at the council nieeting last night
including an order to purchase a safe,
a trip to Georgetown, etc.
All the members were present except
Aid. Mclntyre.
A communication was received from
the city solicitor stating that the city
could not tax government owned lots
and the taxes paid by the city until the
lots were sold.    It quoted section 172.
Georgetown  on  Saturday
In reply to an inquiry from Aid.
Barrow re the trip to Georgetown
His Worship stated that the trip would
be made on Saturday next. If anything
prevents a notice will be posted on the
city hall door. The engineer's convenience must be condidered.
Remove   Buildings
A report was received from the city
engineer giving the specifications for
grading on Second avenue. He also
suggested that the owners of buildings
on that street be notified to remove them
within two months of this date.
Moved by Aid. Pattullo and Aid.
Naden that the building owners on
Second avenue be notified to remove
them.���Carried.
The specifications were referred to
the   Streets  Committee.
A   New   Safe
Under the head of new business Aid.
Pattullo moved that the city purchasing
agent be authorized to purchase a fire
proof safe for $350.00. Aid. Smith
seconded the  motion and it carried
No   Special   Legislation
Under the same head Aid. Lynch referred to Mr. Black's new hotel at the
corner of First and Seventh and said that
he recommended that the city engineer
be authorized to take out the rock on
the street before the hotel is constructed.
A few shots now would take the rock
out and the expense would be very small
compared to what it would after the
building was up. Aid. Mobley seconded
it.
Aid. Pattullo asked how the work
would be paid for, by frontage tax or
out of a general fund.
The resolution was amended that the
cost be fixed at $50.00.
Aid. Pattullo moved in amendment
that   the   question   be   deferred   until
next meeting unless the mayor rules
for a notice of motion.
The mayor ruled that Aid. Lynch
give notice of motion at the next meeting.
The notice of motion was given.
Aid. Lynch moved that the mayor
and city clerk be authorized to sign
the papers in regard to easement'through
Mr. McLennan's property.
Light   and   Telephone
Aid. Smith stated that in connection
with the cost of a temporary lighting
plant that the committee had talked the
matter over and had handed their
data to the city engineer to report on.
In connection with the taking over
of the telephone plant Aid. Smith said
that Mr. Law wished the Telephone
Committee to engage the staff and such
workmen as they have. The plant will
be ready to operate- on about August
4th.
Aid. Mobley thought this would be
advisable and suggested that two or
three female operators, preferably of
mature years, be engaged.
It was decided that for the time being
the city had better not do anything that
would be presuming that the by-law
would carry.
PERSONAL
Chas. Cullin, clerk to the road
superintendent, arrived in the city this
morning from up the river.
Mining Recorder John Conway and
family move to Stewart about the irst
of August. They are" packing their
household goods now.
Dr. Mclntyre did not leave on the
Prince Rupert thit morning. Mrs. Mclntyre left on the vessel for a brief stay at
the Harrison Hot Springs.
Messrs. Aldous and Field prominent
merchants of Hazelton were in the city
for a few days en route south for a
holiday.
Miss Cora Barker, daughter of W. L.
Barker, architect, left on the City of
Seattle last night for Treadwell, Douglas
Island, where she will spend a couple
of weeks with friends.
MARINE

uncomfortably hot in Dawson and the
party returned to Skagway, the yacht
having been recalled to that point by
wireless.
"We have had a splendid time,'
said General Wilson this morning."
"We have seen most of the coast of
Southeastern Alaska and have made
trips into the interior. From Cordova,
for instance, we made an excursion
along the Copper River railway of over
a hundred miles, passing through marvellously beautiful country. Then we
passed up all the important inlets,
called at all the towns and had a good
time generally wherever we went. The
trip down the Yukon was particularly
pleasant.
"The newspapers, General, say that at
Dawson you retreated in face of the
enemy?"
"What enemy?"
"The mosquitoes."
"You may deny that as tee-totally
false and unfounded."
"Yes, the fact is," observed Mr.
Selin, "the ladies felt a little scared in
regard to Bering Sea���and there were
other reasons. The General never
turned back in face of an enemy."
General Wilson turned the conversation and said Prince Rupert was
the most interesting of all the towns
they had visited, and Mr. Schiff agreed
with him. They had both read of the
terminus of the great transcontinental
line and found the city far beyond what
they had pictured it. It certainly was
a fine harbor, said Mr. Schiff, and the
city had made great progress in so
short a time. It would undoubtedly grow
into a large and important place.
"Yes," agreed General Wilson, in a
contemplative tone of voice. 'But
it will take a lot of money; a whole lot
of money."
The Ramona steamed out of the
harbor at half past eleven. The party
goes to Vancouver and from there will
probably take the train to New Nork.
GIVEN TEN DAYS
Contractor  on the Hospital Foundation  is  Behind  Time
The Hospital Board has had its own
trouble, recently over the contract for
the excavation and foundation. The
work is away behind time and the
architect released the contractor once
because he did not comply with the
provisions of the contract. The Board
held a couple of meetings and tried to
fix up the trouble. Finally it was decided
are all ready to go ahead with their work
to give the contractor ten days to complete his work and after that the board
will take it out of his hands and do it
by day labor. There is still a week to
run and a lot of work to be done.
The contractors for the superstructure
and have been up for some time and
unless the board come to some determined stand the work would have
dragged along until there would have
been no hospital this year.

What   Canadian    [Winning   Journal
Says of  Stewart  Fakes.
Reports from London, England, indicate that passenger agents are attempting to profit by circulating exaggerated stories concerning gold finds in
British Columbia. The tale of a gold
"reef," 25 miles long, near Stewart, is
a fabrication. The region about Stewart
is promising enough; but no good can
come of such fairy tales. Incidentally,
in the Portland Canal country the green
prospector can not thrive. Only those
who know something of hardship and of
travelling over broken country can expect to "sit in."���Canadian Mining

Are you straining your credit of patience with your friends?

Are you strengthening the tie that

Do your actions create a feeling of

Less Whiskey,  More Beer
The Dominion trade returns show
that Canadians are drinking less whiskey
and more beer. The consumption of
tobacco also shows a steady increase.
Thirty years ago two gallons of liquor
were consumed per head of the population, last year only .815. Perhaps the
higher price of things has something
to do with it as well as the improved

EARL GREY TO
START TUESDAY
WILL MAKE FAST TRIP TO WILDS
OF HUDSON BAY
Expects to Reach Fort Churchill
August Fifteenth.���Will Call at
St. Johns, Newfoundland, On Return to Make Official Call.
Ottawa, July 25.���Not only will
Earl Grey be the first Governor-General of Canada to make the rugged
overland trip across the country to
Hudson Bay, but if the plans which
are now being made at the Mounted
Police department do not miscarry,
he will probably achieve the distinction of making the trip in record time.
Earl Grey will leave here on August
3, and is timed to arrive at Fort Churchill on August 15. The entire distance
to be covered is about 2240 miles, of
which about 600 miles will be made by
canoe and portage, the first stretch of
1640 miles being covered by rail.
The water trip is mostly down
stream, but even at that it will be going some to complete the canoe voyage in ten days. At Churchill the
Governor-general will be met by the
steamer named after him, the latest
addition to the Canadian marine service fleet. The minister of marine
telegraphed orders yesterday to Captain Brown of the steamer Earl Grey,
to sail from Pictou, N. S., on July 28.
It is calculated that she will easily
make Fort Churchill by August 12.
On the return voyage the Earl Grey
will call at St Johns, Nfld. There his
excellency will make an official call
upon the governor of the ancient colony.
The Earl Grey is a twin-screw steamer
of 1375 tons, 265 feet long, 18 feet beam,
24 feet depth of hold, the indicated
horsepower of her engines being 6500.
She is an icebreaker, especially constructed to withstand the heavy pressure in
the straits of Northumberland, and last
winter did excellent service on the route
between Pictou, N. S., and Charlottetown, P. E. I. She was built in 1909 by
Vickers Sons & Maxim at Barrow-in-
Furness.

MUST CORRAL
ISLAND TRADE
MR.   HINTON  CLAIMS  MOST   OF
IT GOES TO VANCOUVER
Present Demand For Coal Will Lead
To Speedy Development on Queen
Charlotte���Prince Rupert Wholesalers Urged to Get Busy.
W. P. Hinto.i, general passenger
agent of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
made a tour of the islands during the
week and returned to Prince Rupert
with the impression that the wholesalers
of this city were not active enough in
their efforts to secure the trade of those
growing   communities.
"I was sorry to notice," he began,
"that so large a part of the trade of
the islands goes to Vancouver, and s
little of it comes to Prince Rupert where
it nightly fully belongs. Most of this
Vancouver trade with the islands pays
double freight, and that in itself seems
to me to leave a big opening for Prince
Rupert to jump in and build up a large
tributary business. I do not think your
wholesalers are any too busy to pay
attention to this, and it should be impressed upon them that although the
business with the islands may not be
very large at the present time it is the
opportunity to take the initiative and
lay the foundation for the great commerce that is bound to come. The Grand
Trunk will only be too glad to do its
share, and the more strenuously we
are supported by your merchants the
more we shall be enabled to do.
"There can be no misgiving as to the
rapid development of the islands. That
is bound to come, and quickly. In the
matter of coal, for instance. There is
not sufficent in Vancouver to meet the
demand, and it seems natural, therefore,
for the Vancouver people to turn their
attention to the coal deposits of Queen
Charlotte. There being such a demand,
such a good market for all the coal
that can be produced, warrants the
rapid development of the coal on the
islands.
"I did not notice so much development
of the agricultural lands as I expected.
The soil is just exactly right, climatic
conditions are fair, and all that is needed
ia a little demonstration of what can be
produced. In this respect the annual
fair Prince Rupert is starting will prove
an excellent stimulus. My own opinion
is that the country lends itself more to
dairying and mixed farming. The grass
is good and the small fruits are looking
very well.
There is a big market here for all they
can  raise,   but where they  do their
merchandizing they are likely to send
their products. This is another point
for Prince Rupert people to consider.
Every little counts at the beginning
of things. Prince Rupert should set
out to corral that trade now. If you wait
until it has grown big enough to make
it worth while you will find that it is
then too late."
Mr. Hinton, with his family, returned
to Vancouver on the Prince Rupert this
morning.
MOVE THE SQUATTERS
Shack Dwellers on the School Ground
Are   a    Menace
Before the school opens the end of
August it is quite probable that all the
shacks on the Government school re^
serve will be removed. The School
Board and Health Committee of the
council consider the shacks a menace
to the health of the children and as
they have no right, as squatters, it will
be an easy matter to have them moved.
The school board yesterday instructed
their secretary to request the government agent to have the said squallers
removed before school opens.
Caught   a   Big   One
A pleasure-fishing party went out to
Hays Creek boulevard on Monday.
Among the members of the party were
Mrs. (Capt.) Noel of Port Essington,
Mrs. J. Dean, Miss Minnie MacPherson
Mrs. G. W. Morrow and family. Mrs.
Dean had the honor of catching the first
speckled beauty, a 9 1-2 trout, but there
was real excitement when Mrs. Noel
hooked a three pound beauty and in
her efforts to land him slipped into the
stream. Like a true sport she hung on
and finally landed the trout. As a
piscatorial artist Mrs. Noel can claim
some merit.

This protection is a duty yog
