tombed  in  the  Wellington  coal   mine |
have been left to their fate.   Th.3 mine
was sealed to-day in an effort to smother
the flames which are r:.ging in the lower
workings.
J. Coote, of Vancouver, manager of
the Prince Rupert Light & Power Co.,
arrived in the city last night and registered at the Premier Hotel. This is
the Company which some of the local
citizens took an opti on from of $30,000
for their rights and privileges on
Shawatlans Lake, with the idea of turning it over to the city as a water and
power supply.
Mr. Coote has been in the neighborhood for the past couple of weeks.
Most of that time he has been at Shawatlans getting a camp established
and the men started to work. He says
they started on April 30th., and what
ever has been done has been well done,
so that it will be of service to the city
in case the option is taken over. So far,
a good log cabin has been built and
just enough work so as to hold their
charter good.
In case the-city does not take over
the Light & Power Co's privileges, the
company is prepared to go ahead with
the development for power purposes,
and they will defend their rights in the
courts. He disputes the right of Prince
Rupert to the government reserve of
300 inches, and he claims that his
company is the only one which has any
rights.
A point made by Mr. Coote was that
if he and his company had not taken this
water, the G. T. P. would have gobbled
it up and before the city could have
secured control itw ould have cost them
a million or more. Shawatlans lake is
a very valuable asset.for a company or
a city. Besides being the source of a
water and power supply it will make a
beautiful pleasure resort in the future.
The Prince Rupert Light & Power
Co's manager will remain around here
and keep the work at the lake going
until after the election, to see what the
city intends to do.
Walla Walla, Wash, May 13��� Today witnessed a horrible spectacle at
the penitentiary, and it was the greatest argument against capital punishment the modern day has given. To-day
is the thirteenth of the month, a Friday,
and it was the occasion of the thirteenth
hanging in this penitentiary���the most
gruesome ever witnessed by prison
officials. Richard Quinn was the victim.
He had been sentenced to death for
foul murder. For twenty minutes after
he dropped through the trap he hung
and swung back and forth, pleading
with his executioners to draw him up
and .spring the trap again so that his
agony might be ended.
Quinn was of abnormal strength
and the muscles of his neck automatically stiffened when the rope drew
tight about him. This prevented his
upper spine from being broken 'ind the
man slowly strangled to death while
the executioner, prison authorities and
newspaper men looked on.    It was a
A Slight Error.
T. Y. McKay stated at William Man-
son's meeting that he did not use the
words "Manson is the man for mayor
of this city" as credited to him in list
night's Optimist. He stated that there
was only one man for mayor in this
city as far as he was concerned, and that
was himself. He was, however, supporting Mi. Manson for personal reasons.
Watson & Company Will Sign.
At the meeting of the hospital board
yesterday afternoon, Architect Lailey
notified the members that contractors
W. H. Watson & Co., were perfectly
willing to sign the contract for the excavation of the basement and for the
foundations, upon the conditions mentioned in their letter which was read
at the last meeting. The architect was
authorized to have the papers signed by
Tyesday next.
President J. A. Kirkpatrick occupied
the chair. Others present were G. W.
Morrow, William Manson, T. D. Pat-
POLITICAL   MILL   DIRT.
The Stork Newspaper   Makes Cowardly   Insinuation  Against
Returning   Officer.
William Manson held another large
und enthusiastic meeting in his committee rooms last night at which a number
of the aldermanic candidates, who are
supporting him, and a number of prominent citizens spoke, as well w U"
Manson himself. Every day the fight
is becoming more encouraging for Mr.
Manson.
In his address, Mr Manson came to
the defence of the returning officer,
A. Cuthbert, who had been attacked
m a most insinuating and unfair manner by the paper supporting Fred. Stork
in this campaign for the mayoralty
The paper published what it claimed
to be a complete list of the registrations
and stated that if any additions were
made it would denote that something
w��s going on at the registration office.
In other words it insinuated that the
returning officer was either capable
of, or would allow, names placed on
the list after the registration was closed.
Mr. Manson declared this most unfair
and uncalled for. The returning officer
could not add, or permit to be added,
names after the registration had been
closed.. Every application that had
been made was on file in the returning
officer's office and any citizen, as well I
a�� any newwspaper was at liberty
to examine them and compare them with
the lists. A newspaper is entitled to
a free hand to discuss public questions,
and public men, but such statements

were going too far altogether. The list
published was not complete, and it was
i ot authorized by the returning officer
nor was it furnished by him.
Mr. Manson was warmly applauded
in his defence of a public officer who
had not the privilege to defend   himself.
Mr. W. E. Fisher occupied the chair
and Mr. Liddel acted as secretary.
Among those who spoke were C. W.
Peck, V. W. Smith, C. V. Bennett,
Dr. Clayton, H. Douglas, T. Y. McKay
and the candidate for mayor.
Kaufmann's orchestra was present
and furnished the music.
shocking affair and  has horrified the
whole county.
McKenzie Bros S. S. office and
H. B. Rochester's coal and express
office are being moved from the G. T. P.
wharf to the south side of the C. P. R.,
ticket office. This will be a much more
convenient placefor the public.
The Prince Rupert Rifle Club will
hold its weekly shoot on Sunday next
at the range across the harbour. The
members will leave the floating wharf
at 11 a. m.
David Turner, of San Fransisco, and
George Bennett, of Vancouver, are in
the city for a few days. They hold
large property interests here and expect to build on the lots adjoining
the Exchange building on Third avenue.
Heinze Acquitted.
New York, May 14, ���F. Augustus
Heinze was acquitted of the charges of
mis-applying the funds of the Mercantile National bank while he was president of the institution in 1907. He was
also cleared of the charge of over-
certifying the cheques of his brother's
firm, Otto Heinze & Co. This foiled
the Federal government's attempt to
hold Heinze responsible for the alleged
sky rocketting financiering during the
panic of three years ago in violation
of the national banking laws.
More Canadian Shipyards.
St. Johns, N. B��� May 14, -Hon.
Wm. Pugsley^ minister of Public Works,
in a speech here to-day says he confidently trusts that one or more big
ship yards, for the accomodation of
big war vessels, will be established in
Canada. He had nothing to say as to
their location.
130  Miners Left to Fate.
Whitehaven,   Eng.,   May   14,���One
hundred and thirty seven miners, en-
tullo,  D. G. Stewart,  E.  K.  Strathy
and secretary Cuthbert..
It was moved by Messrs Strathy and
Pattullo that action in reference to
contractor Shockley's cheque be deferred until after the contract was let.���
Carried.
Mr. Shockley was awarded the con-
trract for the superstructure, and he
enclosed a marked cheque for $700 as
a guarantee that he would go on with
the work He afterwards refused to
sign the contract.
Messrs. Pattullo and Stewart moved
that new tenders for the super-structure
be called and that the specifications
call for an eight hour day and at least
$5 per day for carpenters and $3 for
labourers be paid. All tenders must be
accompanied by a certified cheque
for 5 per cent of the tender and in the
event of the contractor whose tender
is accepted refusing to go on with the
work, his cheque will be forfeited .Carried.
The meeting then adjourned.
The New Knox Hotel will open
its new dining room next week. It is
now in the hands of the decorators and
when it is finished it will be one of the
finest in town.
Genesis of Prince Rupert
Being the First Epistle of Bill
< to the Electors.
Chapter I.
And it came to pass that the
Moguls of the Grandtrunk sought an
outlet upon the Pacific ocean.
And they raised the wind and established a city; and the city grew; and
the blindpigs waxed fat, and were
killed off.
And  the  tinhorns   prospered.
And certain among the fat men of
the city became ambitious, and they
spoke among themselves on the plank-
streets and in Dennyallen's and they
brought forth many words at the
publicmeetings.
And they drew up a bad bold
charter.
And they embarked upon the
waters and set their sails for the city
called Victoria, bringing with them
this charter.
For in this city dwelt the wise men,
and also the attorneygeneral
And the rulers of the country did
receive their correspondence at the
Unionclub.
And when the travellers had set
foot upon the shore they proceeded to
the seat of government.
And they kissed the foot of the
attorneygeneral.
And a great rage against the City
rose within him, and he fell upon the
charter with great gusto.
And  he  morethanfixedit.
And  he  mutilated  the clauses.
And he took from them by stealth
the city's assets, and he loaded ui^on
the city liabilities and copper wire.
And the delegates were chastened in
spirit.    And there was nothing doing.
And they reembarked and returned
from whence they came, and the people
wailed in the city and pence was not
in them.
Chapter II.
And it came to pass that the people
sought to choose from among themselves, the rulers of the city.
And a great rain fell and washed
the conscience of many people so that
they became clean, and lo! there came
forth many who would be rulers,
where few only could be chosen.
And the people spoke among themselves again, saying, "Let us have a
publicmeeting."
And lo! there were none who would
dig down for the rent of the theatre
Chapter III.
But when this thing had been
adjusted, the people met together.
And there were many of all nations.
And Vernonsmith, the Mansonite,
was chairman of the meeting.
And he called upon the people in
r. loud voice to send forth their
wouldbes.
And one arose and spoke the name
of Manson, and lauded him with
cause and put him in nomination.
And another spake to the great
multitude and said, "Here is Manson,
the elder, Hath he not found favor once
in the eyes of the electors, and am not
I, Georgemorrow, his right hand? See
therefore ye support him and make
for me my seventeen hundred pieces
of silver to put in the Unionbank.
And the Conservatives and others
applauded and there was much uproar
and tumult.
And another spake saying, "Here
is Stephens of the Boardoftrade. Have

they not put upon the waters the Henriette to provide efficient mail ser
vice? and have they not put the post-
office in the hollow where the multitude may see it, when they know
where it is?. Let us therefore support
Stephens"
And  there  was much silence.
And there arose Quinlan, the extractor, and he spoke saying: "Lo!
am I not president of the great con-
servativeassociation? and have I not
the promise of a full score votes? Yea,
verily, shall I go to the post before my
platform falls and my voters are struck
off!"
And the multitude applauded and
he blew up his chest and peace fell
upon his shoulders.
And he extracted a cigarette and
departed from the platform.
And one arose and spoke the name
of   Bowser, the Attorneygeneral.
And the name wits as a hissing
scorn and even Harryevans, he whose
roar is like the murmur of a thousand
brick, mocked him gently, saying,
"To the pines for him, yea, even unto
the cedars of Lebanon."
And they all mocked him.
And there arose among the people,
a princely merchart, clad in much
tunic and a sword.
And beneath his thumb he bore fl
ticket.
And he reasoned among the voters
for their ballots. And he promised to
keep that ticket in his hands.
And he foretold a whitecity and
much efficiency, and a new post office
close to his dwelling place.
And they questioned him and argued
with him
toltl them also of his great usefulness
to the city.
And they thought him a veritable
cut-up, and they were weary of him,
and called upon the keepers to bring
hither the hook. And he departed backwards ii) great haste.
And when he had subsided, one
came forth of his own accord.
And the atmosphere was warm in
his vicinity, and above his head he
bore a ventilator to cool himself.
For he was unfortunate in that
he was unable to bring forth language
without raising the mercury.
And the mercury rose high, for this
was Mclntyre, the healer, and he wished
to be elected.
And because of the Irishconcert,
certain tribesmen would have none of
him and he hugged the machine, and
the curtains fell.
And there were many more who
wished to speak.
And they all loved the workingman
for it was nigh unto election time and
the vote was large and the working-
man easy.
And the workingman was not
taking any, for he knew their promises
for what they were.
And Newton, the father of the
Stork ticket, might have spoken, but
his venemous pen and his office desk
were not with him, and he was unable
to talk with his tongue at publicmeetings.
For even if he could, the multitude
would not stand for it.
And as his circulation dwindled
his feet grew cold.
And when the night was far gone, the
multidude arose and went to their
homes and they had learned but. little
of the issues, nor had the candidates
done so..

At the request of many of the electors
I have decided to be a candidate for
election as alderman at the forthcoming
election.
In order to place myself in a proper
light before the public, I would say
that I am free from all clique and party
influence.
The first council of Prince Rupert will
have many important issues to deal
with, and if I am elected I will advocate
and endeavour, to the best of my ability, to push through the following measures, and any others which may arise
from time to time, and are of advantage
to the city and citizens.
The immediate borrowing of as large
(a sum of money as the credit of the city
will stand; if possible, a million dollars
or more, this to be covered by the
issuance of debentures of as long a
period and as small a rate of interest
as possible.
The immediate construction of permanent roadways and sidewalks in the
localities where they are most needed.
The completion of an adequate water
works and sewerage system.
The appointment of a competent
city engineer and the immediate organization of a police force and fire department.
We are all aware that the railroad
will not be operating into Prince Rupert
for at least two years, but, in the meantime if we are successful in floating a
loan of sufficient proportion we will be
able to commence public works which
will establish a payroll that will keep
business going, and in these days of
advancement, time is discounted many
years ahead. It would be a wise policy
to complete these works now to be ready
for the incoming of the railroad.
The   appointment  of   a   competent
building inspector, which, however, could
possibly be managed by the chief of the
i fire department.
To protect, and also to assist in the
advancement of all industries in Prince
j Rupert.
j The inauguration of a publicity de-
jpartment to be under the control of
i one of the City officials, say the city
j clerk.
Dealing with the subject of liquor
licenses. This is a matter entirely in
the hands of the citizens. At the same
time I have no hesitation in stating
that I am in favour of the granting of
Hotel licenses.
I  strongly  advocate  that  the  City
should own and operate all its own '
utilities, such as telephones, waterworks, |
: tramways and  electric  lights,  and  to
put them on a revenue earning basis by
the appointment of competent managers.
That an eight hour day system be
established for labourers and mechanics
and that a fair wage be paid for same, j
I am emphatic on the employment of
white labour.
I would be in favour of contrac
as well as day labour, as circumstances
and nature of work will be a matter of
economics for the council to consider.
If any further matters should arise
which are of importance to the electorate,
I am prepared to state my views definitely concerning them.
Yours respectfully,
G.   W.   ARNOTT.

Daily Edition. <b^^&i> Saturday, May 14
A ���'squealer" is licked before he gets into the fight.
A clean man puts up a clean light.    Manson throws no dirt.
It will take any other man months to secure the knowledge of local affairs
and conditions which Mr. Manson already possesses. Time and action are very
essential to our civic policy.
The past week of the mayoralty campaign has put Manson in the light of a
sure winner. The electors have confidence in his platform and his honest way of
putting tilings.   There is no "grandstand" about Manson.
The base insinuations by the Stork newspaper again.st the municipal returning
officer, who, by virtue of his office, must stand neutral to all sides, is the attitude a coward takes in a losing fight. The returning officer can only defend himself in the courts, ancl the charge is carefully kept on the safe side of a libel
action.
Candidate Stork IB reported as having taken to himself the credit of discovering and thwarting the attempt of the B. C. Telephone Company to get in
here. Just to prevent any misunderstanding, The Optimist is going to take the
credit for that itself. It was first publicly announced in The Optimist, and the
suggestion that the Board of Trade take steps to shut out the B. C. Telephone
Company was made in the columns of this paper. Mr. Stork, along with others,
admitted at a Board of Trade meeting that he was unaware that the B. C. Telephone Company contemplated coming in here until he read it in The Optimist.

The Prince Rupert Optimist
Saturday. May 14
Daily Edition. ���	
A "squealep" is licked before he gets into tlie fight.
A clean man puts up, a clean fight.    Manson throws no dirt.
It will take any other man months to secure the knowledge of local affairs
and conditions which Mr. Manson already possesses. Time and action are very
essential to our civic policy.
The past week of the mayoralty campaign has put Manson in the light of a
sure winner. The electors have confidence in his platform and his honest way of
putting things.   There is no "grandstand" about Manson.
The base insinuations by the Stork newspaper against the municipal returning
officer, who, by virtue of his office, must stand neutral to all sides, is the attitude a coward takes in a losing fight. The returning officer can only defend himself in the courts, and the charge is carefully kept on the safe side of a libel
action.
Candidate Stork is reported as having taken to himself the credit of discovering and thwarting the attempt of the B. C. Telephone Company to get in
here. Just to prevent any misunderstanding, The Optimist is going to take the
credit for that itself. It was first publicly announced in The Optimist, and the
suggestion that the Board of Trade take steps to shut out the B. C. Telephone
Company was made in the columns of this paper. Mr. Stork, along with others,
admitted at a Board of Trade meeting that he was unaware that the B. C. Telephone Company contemplated coming in here until he read it In The Optimist.

WHY
BECAUSE
MANSON    SHOULD    BE
ELECTED.
BECAUSE
BECAUSE
he has a better knowledge of
Prince Rupert's civic affairs
than anyone else.
his  honesty  and  integity is
above reproach.
he   thoroughly  understands
municipal law and systemitiz-
ing municipal work.
BECAUSE financiers to whom Prince Rupert must go for heavy loans
demand a big, clean man who
has had experience ill handling public funds.
BECAUSE he knows where to start and
how to start organizing the
civic administration,
he has the confidence of the
Provincial Government, with
whom the city will have considerable important business
transactions within the present year.
his policy is straightforward,
good business and allows no
room for juggling.

To the Electors of Prince Rupert:���
In my opinion the most important:
and immediate necessity confronting!
the city of Prince Rupert is the estab- j
lishment of a permanent and adequate j
water supply, both for domestic pur-j
poses and for fire protection.
The question of sewerage must also
receive  attention  without  delay,  par-
ticularly   in   congested   parts   of   the |
city.
The electric light system, for which
tenders have already been called, must
be completed as soon as possible,
so that the city will not be in darkness
next winter.
Plank roadways and sidewalks to
isolated parts of the city must be
provided in order to give to those of
moderate means an opportunity to build
at a reasonable cost.
The building of permanent roadways
must  receive  the  early   attention  of I
the council.
By-laws having reference to health, j
fire  protection and all other matters!
relating to the internal economy of
the city must, and of course, will re-
cieve immediate attention.
A campaign of publicity should be 1
inaugurated and every encouragement given to induce the establishment
of industrial enterprizes here.
I am in favour of the granting of
liquor licenses and their proper and
due regulation. In so saying, I am not
to be interpreted as an advocate of
i the liquor traffic. I believe that the
! license question is one in which there
should be uniformity throughout the
'Province.
I am opposed to the over running
of the city    with thieves,  thugs and
tinhorns, and believe in decency and
: orderliness.
I am in favour of an eight hour day,
] and if elected will insist that eight hours
'shall  constitute a days  work on all
! city work.   I shall also insist that minimum and fair wage clauses be inserted
in all city contracts.
I am opposed to the employment of
Asiatics.
I believe that wherever any city work
is to be performed by contract, that
sealed tenders should be called for
and opened in the presence of those
who tender, should they desire to be
present.
I believe that as far as the finances
of the city will permit that the city
should own and operate its own public utilities.
If elected, I shall use my iniluence
to urge on the Government and th
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, the
claims of the city to a grant of vacant
lands at present reserved for park
premises.
I shal also join with the council in
urging both upon the Provincial and
Dominion Governments the expenditure
at this place, ol monies for the city's
improvement along lines within their
respective jurisdictions.
I believe that the city should spend
as much money as possible in permanent
improvements.. Care should be taken
that every dollar is spent judiciously,
so that by the time the railroad is
completed, we shall have a model city,
with all modern conveniences. Pending
completion of the railway this would
furnish employment to a large number
of men which would inure to the benefit
of the city.
If elected, all my efforts will be
directed along non-partisan lines, and
I am absolutely free from party or personal pledges of any kind.

Steamer   Cetriana.
The steamer Cetriana, with Captain
Dick in charge, arrived in port last
evening on her second trip up. The
boat was several hours behind the time
she was expected, but she had on a lot
of freight for intermediate ports and was
thus delayed. At Port Essington she
also took on a lot of ice for Rupert.
The Cetriana is owned by the Northern
Steamship Co., and she is one of the
finest crafts on the northern route,
and also one of the fastest. Before the
N. S. S. Co., got here she was on the
North sea and had been built for deep
sea going. Since being fitted as a passenger boat, she was placed on the route to
Prince Rupert and the north. The interior of the Cetriana is very compact,
comfortable and handsome. She has
accomodation for over 60 saloon passengers and a hundred or more steerage;
she can also carry 1200 tons of freight.
The interior of the passenger's quarters
is finished in oak and handsomely fur
nished. The ladies cabin, men's smoking
room and the dining room are forward,
and besides being very comfortable,
are so situated that no vibration from
the engines is felt. There is also lots of
deck room and a good promenade deck.
The Cetriana is one of the best boats
on the route and she will be one of the
most popular.
PORTLAND CANAL STOCKS.
Auxiliaries   Popular.
In last night's Optimist appeared a
suggestion that a ladies auxiliary be
organized in connection with the hospital. This idea has met with general
approval from the members of the
board and some of them expressed
their views to the Optimist accordingly.
They would more than welcome the
assistance of the ladies of the town.
They realize that the gentler sex can
be of very j valuable service not only
at the present time, but in the future.
It was also stated by one of the members of the hospital board that the
ladies would be invited to meet the
board, or its representatives, some
afternoon in the near future, when an
effort would be made to organize an
auxiliary.

I went one night with my high-priced
thirst to loaf in the booze bazaar,
And as I sampled the old red dope I
leaned on the handsome bar.
My purse was full of the old long green,
and my raiment was smooth and new,
J And I looked as slick as a cabbage rose
that's kissed by the nice wet dew.
i Behind the bottles a mirror stood, as
large as your parlor floor,
| And I looked and looked in the shining
glass,    and    wondered,   and   looked
some more.
My own reflection did not appear, but
there where it should have been
saw
I s-jw the form of a cringing bum, all
crumpled and soaked with gin.
His nose was red  and  his eyes were
dim,
Unshorn was his swollen face, and  I
thought it queer
Such a seedy  "bo" would come to so
so smooth a place.
I turned around for another look at this
effigy of despair,
And nearly fell in a little heap, for the
effigy wasn't there!
The barkeep laughed.    It's the magic
glass, he said, with a careless yawn;
It shows a man how he's apt to look years
hence, when his roll is gone.

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
���"THE germ of both Life ancl
* Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, tbe neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.
