Prince Rupert, B.C., Tuesday, May 10, 1910.
Price, Five Cents
TO ADVERTISE THE CITY.
Board of Trade Decided to Spend $700
in Publicity.
The members of the Board of Trade
are enthusiastic over advertising for
the city. In the past this organization has allowed others to do all the
advertising, but it will not be so in the
future $500 was voted last night
towards the Bird's Eye View folder,
and $100 a month for two months
was voted for advertising in papers
in the mining districts, that Prince
Rupert is the hub of Northern British
Columbia mining and the place for
prospectors to be outfitted. The
feeling was pretty general that this is
the most opportune time for advertising in the city's history on account of
(the big mining boom this summer,
Inot only at Portland Canal and at
'Queen Charlotte Islands but at the
��� river camps.
Reports from several of the committees were read and G. W. Morrow's
resignation as a member of the council
as received and dealt with.
In opening, President Morris thanked
Jthe members of the board for having
I elected him to the first office. This
was his first appearance since he was
elected. He hoped that his efforts this
year would be successful and receive
| the co-operation of all the members.
The minutes of the last meeting were

Communications.

jj  The secretary read a copy of a let-
Her he sent to the Society of Canadian
vlCivil Engineers in reference to the requirements of the city of an engineer,
jle also received a reply.   A communication  was received  from  the citizens
of Stewart, complaining about the very
,|>oor mail service to that port.   They
,H>l;'me Rupert for this state of affairs,
,'and now ask this town to assist them
5wi their efforts to have it improved.
I A letter was read from George W.
Myorrow   resigning   his   position   onthe
Spuncil of the Board of Trade,  as it
Sas impossible for him to devote the
���ftcossury time to the duties that  it
fHnild require and that he would like
M give.   He thanked the board for  the
honor  conferred  upon   him.
���The  resignation  was  accepted.
Bin reference to the Stewart citizens j
JHpter,  President Morris said it was a
Jrious matter.  Stewart is ii much lnrgpr_j
|Kwn, and a weekly mail is of no use
Bp them.    They should have the mail
Knt  up on every  fast  boat that goes
���p.     An  arrangement has been made
Bhereby the postmaster here puts the
Hail on the boats, and the postmaster
T|t Stewart must take it off.    This is
lily temporary
Mr. Pattullo suggested that the chair
|ppoint   a   committee,   and   that   the
lair be a member.    A committee of
hree was adopted. Messrs. Kirkpatrick,
^lex. Manson and H. H. Clarke were
elected.
To  fill  Mr.  Morrow's  place in the
ouncil, Mr. H. P. Wilson, manager of
he Royal Bank, was elected.
Mr. McMaster said that he was un-
ile to   report  in   reference   to   the
lamphlet advertising scheme.   He could
|ot be present all the time.
Mr. H. H. Clarke reported for the
lupert-Stewart steamboat service. He
pid that they looked at an old boat,
ut it was unsuitable altogether. He
nderstood that two boats were coming
up from Victoria. One was a 50 h. p.,
gasoline boat with a capacity of 30 tons.
Mr. Clarke reported for the rat
committee. He said that he instructed
Mr. Harrison to order the 200tubes of
virus. The committee was continued and
it was instructed to co-operate with the
G. T. P., and Foley, Welch & Stewart
until  the rats  were  extirminated.
President Morris reported that he,
with representatives of the Publicity
Club and the Real Estate Exchange
waited upon Mr. Chamberlain in reference to getting out an advertising
pamphlet. The committee also expressed the desire to defer the sale of the
lots this summer, nnd he finds since
that the sale has been deferred, and for
a good purpose too. A sale at the time
would have a tendency to tie up too
much money in the city.
Mr. Pattullo stated that Mr. Cham-
b.'irlain asked the members of the deputation their personal views as to the
putting on of the sale of lots. Any
opinions expressed were purely personal
and did not represent any organiz-
tion.
Mr. Williams explained the nature of
tlie proposed 12 page folder that it is
proposed to issue by the Publicity Club
and Real Estate Exchange. The folder
is to be a very attractive one���it will
be a work of art. The expense will be
great and the Board of Trade will have
to consider the question of contributing to the expense. Prince Rupert, at
this stage, is in need of something of the
kind. Other pamphlets and pieces of
literature issued in this past are no longer adequate. The proposition was
40,000 folders for $5,000. That fell
through and now the proposition is
5,000 folders for $2,000. The Real
The Real Extate Exchange has offered
to put up $1,000. The Board of Trade
and the Publicity Club should put up
the balance.
It was moved that the Board of Trade
contribute $500.
Mr. Scott said he did not think there
should be any action taken to-night, but
to wait until a greater representation was present. He did not think that
the Board was interested in any advertising scheme gotten up by the Publicity
Club, which was bankrupt.
Mr. H. H. Clarke said that the Publicity Club was not bankrupt, neither
did the club get up this scheme. The
club will get out a pamphlet, whether
the Board of Trade assists it or not. He
seconded the motion to grant $500.
The publicity club will come through
with the other $500.
Mr. Scott said this meeting had no
right to vote the Board's money away.
There should be many more members
present.
R. H. White said the Board should
inrow more about this thing "before they
go into it. If the G. T. P. does not
take up the thing, the City will be stuck.
President Morris supported the motion. He thought it was time the Board
should do something. The proposed
folder will be a work of art and will
be a credit to the City. He was sure the
G. T. P. would take the matter up
and would pay at least half thecost of
the 40,000 order.
Mr. Williams spoke at some length
strongly supporting the proposition.
It was to advertise Prince Rupert and
get people here and help build up the
city and the merchants and other
businesses   here.
The motion was put to the meeting
and carried by a large majority.
Mr. M. M. Stephens referred to the
necessity of advertising. He said it
never came home to him as it did when
he was away. He said several of his
old friends going to prospect at Stewart
had bought all their outfits at Vancouver,

Will Be Grand Pageant.
London, May 10,���The King's funeral is absolutely fixed for May twentieth. Premier Asquith and McKenna
reached London yesterday. King Haakon and Queen Maud of Norway, were
met by King George and Queen Mary,
correct style of new Queen, at the
station this evening. They drove to
Buckingham Palance and viewed the
remains. King George requests all
theatres to re-open, many people otherwise will be thrown out of work. He
also says he is sure it was the wish of
his late father that there should be
no interruption in the public enjoyment on Whitsuntide holiday next
Monday. The usual national mourning
will inflict no unnecessary sacrifices on
the people. Normal life will accordingly be resumed until the funeral, which
will be a day of national mourning.
The pageant will be the greatest of
modern times, greater even than that
of the late Queen's funeral. After a
brief service last night, attended by
Queen Alexandra arid members of the
Royal Family, the body was transferred to a casket shell. It was kept
open that the Queen of Norway might
see the face of her father. It was a
touching farewell. The shell was then
placed in a lead envelope and sealed. An
elm shell will be placed in a casket of
oak made from a Windsor forest tree
cut down for .the purpose.
Parliament meets to-morrow to pass
resolutions and adjourn probably until
mid June. The Duke of Connaught
is now mentioned as Governor General.
It is said to be the late King's wish.

explosives.

Letters to  the Editor.
SCHOOL TRUSTEES.
Dear Sir,��� As one who is disqualified by the class legislation of this
Province from being a school trustee,
perhaps I amy be permitted to draw
attention to the importance of securing
the right kind of school trustees���those
who are prepared to spend time and
thought and energy in all matters
relating to the education of our boys
and girls. Every other consideration,
personal,, social and po litical should be
set aside.
I cannot help recalling the deplorable
fact that so little interest was taken
in our first annual meeting, of which
legal notice was duly given, that I had
to get my wife, and ask a neighbour to
come, in order to have enough voters
to elect one school trustee for three
years, another for two, and another for
one year.
There is a danger of the contest for
Mayor and Aldermen overshadowing
the election at the same time of school
trustees.
Public school teachers often deplore
the fact that they are under trustees
who, at every turn, betray their ignorance and incapacity.
Got   In Wrong.
To have the tribulations of a married
life thrust upon one, especially when
one is an unsuspecting and innocent
bachelor, was the rude awakening
which one of Prince Rupert's prominent
citizens had forced upon him in a recent
trip. Traffic north at this season of
the year is pretty heavy, and thus
mistakes will happen. The unsuspecting
one naturally .enough went early to
his berth on the Princess Royal, as
is the custom of all sober young men,
tucked himself behind the curtains
and passed int.o the land of nod.
The lower berth had also been
sold. Towards morning, much to the
Rupertonian's surprise, he was awakened
by the infantile murmurings of one of
the occupants of the lower berth. Upon
the realization of conditions, the consternation of the young man can only
be imagined by an active mind. What
could he do? If he remained in the
berth he might sneeze; if he tried to slip
away quietly, the lady below might see
his nether limbs descending from the
upper berth and scream; if he called for
help he would be advertised unkindly.
What  would you have done?

business that this city wants. The city
must be alive and the necessity of

successful towns spend thousands
of dollars every year and they all claim

The Board of Trade has not. up to
up to the present, done its part in the
way of advertising, was the expression
of many.
Mr. M. M. Stephens took up the matter of outfitting prospectors and said
that it was a very profitable business. He
said the advertising should be done in
mining communities, such as Rossland,
Kootenays, Cobalt, etc.
Mr. Pattullo moved that the Board
vote $100 a month to judicious advertis.
ing. This is for two months. It carried,
and a standing committee will handle it
and other advertising matter.
President Morris stated that, when
in the East, he took up the matter with
Hon, Mr. Templeman and Hon. Mr.
Pugsley of cutting the telegraph rate
between Rupert and Hazelton and
local points. He had been promised
that the rate would be cut. That was in
March, but so far no cut had been made.
He asked that the secretary be instructed
to send a wire to Hon. Mr. Pugsley in
the morning. Nothing had been decided
about the public buildings. They had
secured the sites. The President was
instructed to take the matter up again
with Ottawa.
Mr. Manson said that he understood
that Sir Wilfred Laurier contemplated
a trip to British Columbia this summer..
Hon. Mr. Pugsley was coming and
ly Hon. Mr. Templeman.. He thought
the Board should make strenuous efforts
to induce the Premier to come here
and to tender him a a reception.
The matter should be taken up at once.
Mr. Pattullo moved that the President renew the invitation to Sir Wilfred Laurier and Hon. Wm. Templeman.
The meeting adjourned.

WILLIAM MANSON'S QUALIFICATIONS.
William Manson is in the field in the mayoralty contest, not for the honor
or such emolements as may pertain to the office, but because many of the electors who are admirers of his believe him to be the best qualified man in the city
for the position.
Mr. Manson does not seek power or glory. The position he holds as Member
is greater than any this city can give him. His purpose is a sincere desire to
organize tjie city municipal government and start it on the route of systemized
business. Mr. Manson's public record is sufficient proof of this statement. His
stand in all his public life has ever been for the people. No one can cast the suspicion of a doubt on that point.
The qualifications of Mr. Manson are just as unquestionably superior to
those of anyone else. The city needs a business man with knowledge of municipal work, city books, municipal law, accounting, the city's relation to the Government, the police commission, the license commission, the school board and
other organizations.
For nearly 20 years Mr. Manson was chief accountant of one of the largest
industrial institutions in this country. He served for three years as an alderman
of the city of Nanaimo. For four years he was mayor of the same city. For
12 years he was a school trustee. He was a member of the Legislature and a
cabinet minister. For the past few years he has been Government agent of the
district, located in this city and practically the civic head. He has the knowledge necessary for a mayor to organize the city government. He has system,
he has executive ability and a grasp of detail unmatched by anyone in the city.
The problem of organizing a government in a city the size of Prince Rupert,
which is without a book, an office or an employee, is a job requiring some foresight, a deal of knowledge and much time. Being mayor of a city running on
well-oiled wheels, and with employees to suggest, correct and guide, is not altogether a snap; but it is like a summer holiday compared to the job that lies
before the first mayor of Prince Rupert.
With the electors is left the responsibility of choosing what kind of a foundation will be made for our civic administration.
OLGA MINES, LIMITED.
New Company to   Operate   Two   Well
Known Group, on Bitter Creek.
Prominent among the new companies
incorporated during the past month to
develop the wealth of the Portland
Canal camp, is the Olga Mines, Ltd.,
which has been formed to operate two
well known groups on Bitter Creek,
namely the Olga group and the Washington group, comprising 11 claims in
all. An interesting feature in connection with this flotation is that some of
the claims comprising these two groups
were located three years ago by the
first prospectors who went into this
part of the district. These original locators considered their showings so
good that, instead of selling or bonding
their interests, they waited until the
development of the district as a whole
and the close approach of the Portland
Canal Short Line railway rendered the
opportunity favourable for organizing
the present stock company, preferring
to make their profits out of the development of the properties in which they
felt such confidence. Olga Mines, Ltd.,
is capitalized at $1,000,000 in 1,000,000
shares of a par value of $1 each. There
were 500,000 shares in the treasury.
There is no promoter's stock, the owners accepting the company's stock in
payment for their property. Among
the directors are Mr. Harold B. Robertson of the firm of Barnard & Robertson, Victoria; Mr. A. B. Earnst of
Seattle and Mr. A. C. Mecallum, formerly connected with the Castellano
mines in Mexico; operated by the Gold
and Silver Recovery Company of London, England and Mexico, who has been
appointed managing director for the new
Company. The secretary is Mr. Kenneth McCallum of Victoria, the solicitors are Messrs. Barnard & Robertson of the same place, and the bankers
are the Imperial Bank of Canada.
The Company's registered offices are at
those of their solicitors at Fort Street,
Victoria, and the fiscal agent* may be
found at the office of the Secretary, in
the Metropolitan Building, Government
street, Victoria.
A contract has been signed and let
for the running of a tunnel on the main
Olga ledge, which, as development
work has already shown, will be all in
ore. The main ledge runs through the
entire group north of Bitter Creek,
cutting the chloriti schist at right angles
to the formation. On the South side of
Bitter Creek on the Washington Group,
which consists of four claims, in another
well defined lead eight feet wide,
carrying good values in gold, copper
and silver.    Surface assays taken from
both groups of the Company's property
ha^'e given returns, totalling in gold,
silver and copper, $36.21, $58.11, $51.55,
and $9.99 per ton. While the present
company makes no stronger claim to
public confidence than the assertion
that it has an excellent prospect, which
the above assays and the development
work already done bear ample witness
to, the task of opening up the v rious
leads will be pushed with 'til possible
dispatch the moment the weather conditions permit.

CHARITY
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
THE germ of both Life and
Fire Insurance had its rise In
custom of taking up a collection for tl.e stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the 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.
