ON DISTRICT
MINING EXPERT BEAUDETTE IS
THOROUGHLY ENTHUSED

Bibine Lakes, Including Telkwa
Bd Bulkley Valleys.
ij. Beaudette, the Ottawa lining
I tje, who has been examining coal
I rf other mining properties along the
1 feua (or eastern parties, and who was
fbrted in the Optimist as having relumed by way of Ashcroft, surprised
L Yukon friends here yesterday by
wing in on the Hazelton. He said he
did start out that way but found the
trails too bad traveling for this time
I of the year bo returned to Hazelton and
I Intimately caught the boat.
Mr. Beaudette   is   an   experienced
I traveller in the wilds and after experting
the properties which was his special
mission covered as much area as possible
in order to make a general report of the
district. With a couple of horses and a
packer he visited Fourmile Ninemile,
Hudson Bay mountain, the Bulkley and
Telkwa valleys and the whole mineral
district from the Copper river as far as
Babine lake and Francis lake, and as
he progressed his enthusiasm grew.
"I never saw a country of such promising prospects," he said last night.
"There is the largest area of good looking
mineral that it has ever been my lot
to isee, and I look for great development
Kitaeawn."
Coming from such a source this is
probably the highest praise of the
district that has ever been expressed.
A�� a general rule Mr. Beaudette Is very
conservative in his views, as are all
experienced mining experts, and as close
�� a clam in expressing them. His
mining education was completed in
the greatest schools of Europe, and he
has inspected a good part of the mining
territory of the world.
"Do not expect me to say more than
that," he observed, "as before I do any
talking I must make my report to the
parties East who sent me out. I have
no hesitation in expressing myself in
pneral terms and in saying that the
mineral resources of the country I have
just come from are of a general richness
W superior to those of any new country
'have visited.
"The district is growing fast, as can

ANOTHER BOMB FOR COUNCIL
Provincial Government Wires That Loan of Fifty Thousand  For
Electric Lighting Is Withheld.���Council Was Negligent In
Not Making Application Within Prescribed Period.
KILLED IN A RAID
Police Have Hot Time Cleaning Up
New York's Tenderloin
Yesterday the city council got another jolt. This time it was not dealt
by the Grand Trunk Pacific, the newspaper*' or the Bank of Montreal, but
by the Provincial Government. It
came in the form of a telegram to the
Government Agent instructing him to
pass no more accounts for the Prince
Rupert lighting plant on the $50,000
appropriation of the Government for
that purpose.
The contents of the telegram were
immediately conveyed by the Government Agent to the finance committee
of the city council and the result was
a mild consternation. The aldermen
are getting used to these shocks.
The meaning of the Government's
action was not qiute apparent at first,
but it finally dawned upon the financiers
that the $60,000 appropriated by the
Government as a loan for a lighting
plant should have been secured before
October 1st, as the special act granting
this city a charter only provided for
the repayment of funds loaned up to
that date.
The council assumed the loan would
have been available any time and
proceeded to purchase a plant, for the
lighting service. They have $7000
worth on order now and more to follow.
The message yesterday leaves them
without funds to pay.   It is intended
that a bylaw shall be submitted to the
electors to raise the necessary amount.
The aldermen say the lighting plant
will go on anyway.
Says There Will Be Light
Aid. Mobley waa the first to break
the news to the Optimist yesterday
afternoon. "Well, the Optimist's pro-
pos 1 o borrow half a million dollars
from the Provincial Government has
been knocked in the head," said the
alderm n.
When asked how that was, the chairman of the Electric Light committee
replied: "I might as well tell you as
you will have it in the paper anyway.
We have just received word from the
Provincial Government that the $50,000
they had voted for our electric light
plant has been withdrawn. That means
we are up against it again and it will
go hard with our lighting scheme. I
suppose if we were to call upon them
now for half a million we would be
told to call again. But," added Aid.
Mobley, "even if we have to shut down
everything else and discharge some of
our officials and aldermen we are going
to have electric light. I have wo ked
hard on this proposition and if they
(meaning the Government) had but
let me alone I would have had the
lights burning in six weeks more. We
will have lights anyway."
Refuses to Be Knocked Out
"If they think they are going to
knock Prince Rupert out like that they
are mistaken, that's all." That's how
Aid. Pattullo sums up the situation
"We are going right ahead with the
electric lighting planr anyway," he said.
"Steps will of course be taken to pass
a money bylaw to secure the amount
required for the work. This will take
us a month but meantime we are going
ahead.
"And I have no doubt," he concluded,
"that if necessary the citizens themselves
will take hold and carry the scheme
through. Prince Rupert will not be
knocked down���not by any means!"
Not Raining, but Pouring
Aid. Mclntyre was of the opinion
this morning that, " 'it never rains but
it pours.'" It wasn't the weather he
was thinking of; it was the finnacial
situation. But he was hopeful. "The
Government have withdrawn their loan,"
he aaid, "but I have no doubt some
means will be found to meet the situation."
He stood loyally by the city council.
"We may have made mistakes," he
said, "but they were errors of judgment
not errors of motive. The council has
an up-hill task just now but the city will
come out all right."
(Special to the Optimist)
New Yor, Oct. 8.���The police left the
tenderloin precinct in a hurry last night
and raided a poolroom joint on the East
side. They were bitterly resisted and
there was a brisk fight during which all

More than a hundred shots' were fired
and two men were killed during the
brief engagement and six badly wounded.

BODY  FOUND AT LAST
Remains of Dr. Shaw War* in the
Water For  Months
Revelstoke, Oct. 4.���The body of
the late Dr. Shaw, who was drowned
this summer in Kimbasket Lake, in the
Big Bend country, when his canoe
capsized in a squall, was found last
week half covered in sand and mud
near the edge of the lake, being laid
bare when the lake water subsided. The
remains were badly decomposed, and
were buried at once near the spot where
they were found by a surveying party.
IRON MASK GROUP SOLD
Lloyd Faulkner of Vancouver Bond*
the Property
The Iron Mask group of three claims
on Four Mile hill, located and owned
by D. L. Purvis and Thos. Stephenson
of Hazelton and James Dyer of Rossland, has been turned over to G.Lloyd
Faulkner of Vancouver for $50,000 on
a bond extending over a period of one
year. The terms of the deal involve
a cash payment of $10,000 at once.
Work will start at once under the direction of Wm. Dalton and will be kept
up all winter.
This gives Faulkner and associates
eight claims on Four Mile, including
the five previously obtained from Dyer
and Stephenson at a price of $40,000 and
on which payment has already been
made of $8,000. The Iron Mask group
has a good surface showing of. ore with
high values in silver.
Many Shares of Stock Sold
Wm. Kennedy returned this week
from Prince Rupert where he accompanied Frank Brown to sell treasury
shares of the Hazelton Nine Mile
Mining company owning the Lead King
group of seven claims on Nine Mile
mountain. He reports a very successful
trip, 80,000 shares of the bloek now
being offered to the public. The remainder is likely to be sold before Brown
returns, which will be in a few days.
The sale of this block of stock will
give the company the necessary funds
to czrry on work with a good force of
men.
Reports from the property are very
good. Cabins for winter quarters have
been completed and the property itself
is looking well.���Omineca Herald.
Barn Raising In the West
A farmer at Lloydminister, Sask., has
a remarkable barn. When he built
it he used green willow posts at the
comers and along the sides and the
following season he discovered the
willows had struck roots and were growing. At the end of the year the floor
of the barn had risen three feet above
the ground.
A year ago last spring the barn was on
stilts nine feet high, so the farmer put
in another floor and converted it into
a two-story building.
At the end of the year the new floor
was seven inches above the ground and
the farmer looks forward to the time
when a third���and possibly a fourth-
story may be added to his very remarkable barn.

I  ��� i, , , Hi SSST-I   I" '     '"   "���*"*^H   I
After some little difficulty in procuring the services of an interpreter for the
Tsimpsean Indian dialect, the trial of
William Smith and Charles Sinclair, two
Indians of that tribe for alleged theft
of logging tools and camp outfit of
Ci?orge Moore another Indian, Was held
yesterday afternoon. Judge Young presided. Mr. Wharton of Fisher & War-
ton, represented the prosecution and
Mr. Bennett of Carss and Bennett
appeared for the defence-
George Moore stated that he had been
troubled with an injury to his eye last
summer and had gone to Vancouver
about it. He was practically blind when
he left his camp on the Oxstall Creek.
All his things were put together by
his friends and left in the tent. They
included a canthook, a peevy, a crosscut
saw, various cooking utensils, and a
cook stove. When he got back from
Vancouver he found that his camp had
been disturbed. Along with a friend,
David Willis, he hunted about the
neighborhood for traces of the gear but
did not find it.
The two men then went to William
Smith' camp and there were welcomed
and given supper. But they saw the
missing tent pitched near Smith's camp,
also the crosscut saw, and what they
ihought was the cookstove. Moore
also said that he had seen some of his
cooking utensils in Smith's camp during
supper.
Moore under the encouraging advice
of Judge Young had been getting on
very nicely with his evidence under Mr.
Warton's examination without the services of the interpreter. But when Mr.
Bennett began to cross examine him his
command of English suddenly evaporated. Judge Young warned the witness
sternly not to hedge, and through the
interpreter he naswered Mr. Bennett's
questions. He had not marked a certain
frying pan, but he "knew the cook stove
by how long he had had it." The things
were not in any way concealed in Smith's
camp. He knew nothing about Smith's
two canoes and could not tell how a
board Baid to have belonged to one of
them was found near his camp, Asked
how often he had been in jail for drinking
he said sharply that that had nothing
to do with the present case. He had
given up drinking. He had known
accused but was never on very intimate
terms with him. He admitted that
accused had come the next morning and
returned the crosscut saw, the canthook
peevy, and the tent.
David Wills, who said he was Smith's
partner, declared he saw a dish pan
belonging to their camp at Smith's
camp. This dish pan got mixed up
somehow with a scrubbing brush in
the evidence,, but the tangle was straightened out. Witness also saw other
utensils. He admitted that Smith had
returned the tent and tools saying he
had not known whose they were. Cross-
examined he knew the frying pan and
utensils because he had used them ail
win er. He described tbe dish pan saying
it had two handles. A certain iron
kettle he had seen was blackened with
smoke.
"It was iron, black outside and white
inside therefore you thought it was
yours?" said counsel.  (Laughter.)
Witness did not reply very definitely
but went on to admit that Smith had
asked him to come up to his camp and
see if anything else of his was there.
Sarah Williams corrobrated the evidence regarding Smith's having returned
the articles mentioned. She said she
recognised the cook stove as belonging
to Moore however.
Alexander Fosythe, provincial constable, deeeribed the arrest of the accused.
Accused, William Smith's, own story
was that he had lost two canees some
time ago, and happening to pass Moore's
unoccupied camp had seen a board there
which had belonged to one of his canoes.
He did not know whose c&mp it was but
had annexed the stuff placing it conspicuously near his own camp in order
that the owner might see it when he
would probably claim it and so betray
his identity so that Smith would know
whom to get after for his canoes. The
cooking stove in question had been
given to a friend of his, R. Sankey, by
some Japanese who had done with it. He
was crossexamined closely by Mr. Bennett regarding his having used the tools
taken, and said he had not. Asked about
the cooking untesils he declared they
were his own and he had had them for
four years.
Judge Young: "They must be a
different kind to the ones I buy."
Mr. Bennett: "They are probably
the black outside and white inside kind."
(Laughter.)
Charles Sinclair who had been also
arrested but against whom Judge Young
pointed out there was no accusation,
gave Smith an excellent character as
an employee.
The case had occupied a considerable
time owing to the difficulty with the
language, and by this time the court
room was being premeated with the
odor of not far distant cooking operations���probably emanating from other
specimens of the black outside and
white inside cooking utensils, but certainly not due to the presence in court of
the Indian's dilapidated cook stove.
Judge Young rapidly summed up
the case. He found no evidence to
convict Smith of anything but a crude
effort at amateur detective work. There
was to a certain extent an unlawful
appropriation of the things but not
actually a theft. Smith had returned
them. He believed Smith's story, but
warned him not to attempt to recover
his lost property by this method again.
The tent and logging gear were to be
returned to Moore, the stove Judge
Young ruled was the property of Sinclair,

NOVEL ALIMONY CASE
Divorced Husband Grows Rich, Wife
Seeks Part of His Millions
Philadelphia, Oct. 4.���Mrs. Mary
Lawrence, who divorced her husband
eighteen years ago when he was a
laborer working for the city, has applied to the Supreme Court to settle
the amount of alimony to which she
is entitled. The divorced husband
now is a commission merchant and is
said to be worth $3,000,000. The
woman, who still retains her husband's
name, is a seamstress.
Grand Trunk Pacific Not Jockeyed
There is a great deal of talk about
the Grand Trunk Pacific being jockeyed because the B. C. and Alaska
Railway company has filed plans at
Ottawa for a railway along the west
bank of the Fraser. There seems to
be a notion abroad that the first named
company is trying to make the absurd
mistake of building southward along
a river valley instead of going further
west where there is a good route and
where business can be drawn from both
sides of railway. It is a surprising
thing how in all parts of American
railways are found built along routes
where no land can be developed. One
is almost justified in thinking that railway promoters look at the terminus
only and never give a thought to the
business that can be built up along the
lines they propose to construct.���Victoria Colonist.

THE LOAN CANCELLED
The announcement that the Provincial Government will not advance any
more money on the $50,000 electric light appropriation is just about what would
be expected by any business man were he to get careless in paying or renewing
his notes at the bank. The councillors knew that on October first, according to
the act of incorporation, that all advances made by the Government fell due. The
Act provided for the payment by debentures issued without the necessity of a
vote. These obligations were neglected and not only was no bylaw passed but
the council even neglected to secure the $50,000 appropriation for electric light
available up to that time. The city now finds itself with an electric light plant
ordered and nothing to pay it with now that the $50,000 government loan is cancelled. The council doubtless supposed the Government would come through
with the money any time but one point seems to have been overlooked, for while
the Government might lend the money without special authority there is no provision made in the charter for the city to pay back moneys issued after October
first without its first have been voted on by the people.
All other plans having failed it is evident that the citizens will now get a voice
in the raising of finances,
I-
REPUBLICAN MOVEMENT IN SOUTHERN EUROPE
There seems little reason to doubt at this writing that the monarchy of Portugal
has fallen and the dynasty of Braganza finally ended. In this even than of the
most |monarchial tendencies will see little to regret, nor could they do so if the
same fate should overtake Spain, which seems well within tbe range of probabilities.
For both these countries, it must be admitted, have been in a state of decadence
during the past two generations at least. With territories rich in natural resources
development has been retarded or brought altogether to a standstill.not so much
by the form|of government itself as by the petty tyranny and exactions of officials
under that form of gevemment. The people of both countries have been seeking
freedom under the constitutions they have from time to time obtained, and in order
to defend existing authority the crown has had to call out the troops against its
own citizens. In this age no country can hope to prosper under an iron rule which
curtails the rights |of free speech and the liberties of conscience, and it is this iron
rule that has ground down the people of these two southern Europe countries into
the state of apathy which has produced the national decadence.
But whether under a republican form of government the two will be more prosperous is a question that only time can solve. Certainly it will not be for some
time, for the principles of self governemnt, however eagerly embraced, are not
to be advantageously exercised without some experience of their limitations as well
as their scope. It is a question whether these Latin races of Europe are any the
more capable of self government than are those of this continent, and in the latter
case, as is well known, more than fifty per cent, of the resources of the country are
spent in revolutions that devastate the territories affected and prevent any continuity of permanent development. Yet it is from these turbulent republics of
Southern America that Spain and Portugal have been looking for freedom from
monarchial rule.
It must be more than a coincidence that the president of the republic of Brazil
should be present in his warship in the waters of Portugal at the very moment
when the rebel attack was made on the royal buildings of Lisbon. It seems to
lend color to the many rumors that have been current during the last two years
of a huge conspiracy, backed by Brazilian capital, to form one great republic of
all the Latin countries. Should this be the case one can hardly hope for any real
progress or development for another quarter of a century, as Brazil, the accredited
founder of these new republics, gains little or nothing from its own revolutions.
It was a paternal government under the kindly rule of Emperor Dom Pedro, a
happy and prosperous country. He believed in the progress of modern ideas and
at all times was ready to accord to the people whatever reforms seemed wise and
needful. The revolution was a bloodless one, as he at once stepped down and
resigned his sceptre to the people. Many years of peace were enjoyed by the rich
provinces of Brazil under his liberal rule; many revolutions have since made its
flowery fields battlegrounds of civil carnage.
That Portugal, and Spain also, should become republics would not affect the
balance of power in Europe, as they have cut little figure for so long in international
comity. Nor can the result be discussed as another victory for freedom of the subject and another death blow to monarchial institutions, for it still remains a question, as in the cane of Brazil, whether these peoples would not be happier and more
prosperous, under a limited monarchy such as we are blessed with, than with a
governemnt of their own which racial temperament seems unfit to them for properly
exercising.
Until such time as the city council admit they are in the wrong disasters will
continue to pile up.
The end of the present year is likely to see the city aldermen all ardent advocates
of government by commission.
Having received a second blow within the week the city council will probably
devote itself the next few days to laying the blame on the newspapers, the G. T. P.,
the Bank of Montreal and the Provincial Government.
The Toronto World is hot after Hon. A. B. Aylesworth, in regard to his connection with the Newmarket canal.'holding that this enterprise is "a million dollar
joke" both in parliament and throughout the country. What a good thing it is
that the Toronto World has not heard of the Prince Rupert million dollar joke.

CAPABLE LADY
PRESBYTERIANS
MAKE   THEIR   SALE   OF   HOME
COOKING A SUCCESS
Popular Prince Rupert Pastors and
Their Little Pleasantries���Thst
Hymn Singing Hen I���That Dreadful Dancing!   That Theatre-going!
The Sale of Home Cooking oragnized
by the Ladies' Aid Society of the First
Presybterian church was a complete
success. The church was decorated, and
presented a warm and inviting appearance lighted up last night. The building
was thronged with the members and
their friends.
In the evening the concluding ceremonies of the sale took the form of a
welcome to Rev. W. F. Kerr by the
Mayor, members of the church and the
other clergymen of the city.
A very cordial greeting was aloe
extended to Miss Sutherland the new
deaconess for the Presbyterian church
whose presence in the congregation and
community is very much appreciated.
Mayor Stork occupied the chair, and
extended the city's welcome to the
pastor and Miss Sutherland in cordial
and appropriate terms.
Rev. Charles R. Sing of the First
Methodist church gave an address of
welcome in his own humorous style
referring to the theatre going intentions
he had heard mentioned regarding two
members of the First Presbyterian
church, and in amusing fashion to the
presence in the neighborhood of his
own church of a certain hymn-singing
hen which disturbed him during his
devotional exercises. He referred also
to the new regime of the Methodist
church which now allowed of a little
dancing.
Rev. W. F. Kerr in reply took up
this matter of dancing being allowed to
Methodist ministers and members with
an air of gravity. He was sorry, he said
solemnly, to have to leave Rev. Mr.
Sing to the mercies of that hymn-singing
hen while he and his congregation betook themselves to the theatre for their
Sunday services. But he did think that
if Rev. Mr. Sing were to set any example
in the dancing line it would produce a
precedent fully as bad as the theatre-
going of the Presbyterians.
The speeches caused much merriment
among the audience and were heartly
enjoyed.
Rev. Mr. McLeod the new pastor of
the First Baptist church also tendered
to Rev. Mr. Kerr and Miss Sutherland
the greetings of the Baptists of he city
in an eloquent speech.
Miss Sutherland's reply to the greetings
addressed to her was embodied in a
charming little speech, well expressed
and modestly worded. Her heart is
in her work in the city, especially among
the children.
A delightful musical program was
rendered by Mrs. Dennison who contributed charming solos, and Miss Barker
whose violin playing added greatly to the
pleasure of the evening.
Altogether the gathering was a very
marked success, and great credit is
due to Mrs. Naden, the president of
the Ladies' Aid Socisty, as well as to
the members of the society and ladies
of the church who carried it so capably
through.
There is more animation and action
in one lacrosse game than. a doxen

Miss Cusack Leaves tha City
Miss Cusack, who recently received
serious injury by slipping from the plank
roadway on a dark night, left on the
Cottage City for Victoria. While here
she was the monotype operator of the
Optimist and became very efficient. She
goes to her former home in Victoria
and at the opening of the Legislature
will resume her duties as members'
stenographer. During her stay here she
was deservedly popular.

Have  You Any Loose Change?
Turkey wants to borrow $60,000,000.
Application was first made to Parisian bankers, but the French government declined to permit them to mate
the loan on the ground that the money
was to be used for purposes of which
France could not approve, one
them being the purchase of war ships
from Germany. Thereupon Turkey
applied to Sir Edward Cassels of London, and that magnate had prepared
to furnish the money, whereupon the
French government entered a protest,
and the Britiah government, though
it had no real power in the premises.
persuaded Sir Edward to discontinue
negotiations. Hence Turkey is vet
seeking the $50,000,000. Here's ��

Dawson, Oct. 3.���Dawsonites now I
mak ing the journey of five miles from j
Dawson over the Hunker boulevard to
a point a mile this side of Bear creek
can see in the making the larges gold
recovering machine ever designed. Not
in history of man, counting far back
i the unfathomable darkness before
tne days of Solomon when the gold of
Ophir enchanted the world, has there
ever been such a mammoth machine
conceived or built by the hand of man
to recover the golden wealth scattered
in ages past in the secret pockets of
Mother Earth.
The Canadian-Klondike Mining company, Limited, is building the giant
dredge, and when it is finished will
have the honor of owning a boat which
will be the talk of the mining world.
President and General Manager Joseph W. Boyle has more than 100 men
engaged on the work of construction,
rushing the work day and night. When
the darkness would have sway the
numerous electric arc lamps make it
almost as light as day, and the work
progresses without a hitch.
At the rate the undertaking is being
pushed along the dredge should be
finished and receive the juice before
the end of the season. The outlook
now is that the big machine will have
ample time for a thorough test before
the closing of the dredging season.
Mr. Boyle is enthusiastic over the
work.   He is on the ground constantly.
Howard Brenner, thi expert who designed the machine in accordance with
the desires of the owners, is on the
ground directing the construction. He
is one ef the cleverest dredge experts
in the world, and was sent from Marion, Ohio, the home of the builders,
especially to assemble the ship.
The dredge- is to be known as the
"Canadian." The name is taken from
the first part of the company's name.
Large metallic name plates are prepared to be placed on the side of the
house.
The cost of the dredge will run between $300,000 and $400,000. The
freight on the machinery alone, to say
nothing of the penalties to be added
because of the enormous size of many
parts, will reach something like $100,000.
The dredge will be driven with power from the new plant now being installed on the north fork of the Klondike by A. N. C. Treadgold. The giant
motors for the new dredge are on the
ground. No transformers are to be
used on the dredge, and every wire
going aboard the boat will be absolutely insulated, and the craft thus
fully protected from fire risk.
The digging line will have a 300-
horsepower motor, and will be guaranteed to stand an overload of 60 per
cent. A 200-horsepower motor will
operate the ladder hoist. The total
capacity of the motors is 1000 horsepower. The motors were designed
especially for this work by the General Electric company.
The digging ladder and the stacking
ladder have steam heating apparatus
especially designed to keep the ice
from interfering with the work. Other
machines have much trouble f om ice
on these parts, especially late in the
fall.
With this new device for warding
off of ice, Mr. Boyle calculates on being
able to dredge 200 or 210 days.
The Canadian will have a capacity
of 10,000 cubic yards a day. The company's dredge No. 1, now at work on
the Klondike, has a capacity of 4000
yardB. The big dredge will handle
15 cubic feet of material with every
bucket.
The second largest gold dredge in
the world is the Natoma No. 1, California.

Men J1 "indulged in by many hunters
no are ordinarily kind citizens
and supposedly Christians, turn into
devils when they go into the woods
with a gun. They shoot at everything
they see. Mother birds are shot and
nests of little ones are thus left to starve
to death. They try their markmanship
on the playful porpoises that come to
play around the boats. A hyena doesn't
kill unless he needs food, but man,
created in tbe image of God, goes forth
leaving death and misery and destruction in the wake of his rifle. To show
his markmanship the lords of creation
will shoot the wing or leg off some
helpless creature and then laugh at the
poor thing's attempts to get away.
They come home and boast of killing
a hundred birds or a dozen deer���more
than they can possibly use, and thoughtlessly believe, that they have done
something to be proud of.
Such men are not ordinarliy cruel and
inhuman; they simply don't think.
Mankind is only half way out of savagery, and murder is one of the lingering
marks of his prehistoric struggle for
food, and this impulse to kill is but a
conclusive reversion to the instincts of
long ago.��� Ketchikan Miner.

the young men who lost their lives there
while at work with the survey party.
Colonel Davis states that the situation
regarding the search for the bodies
remains as reported yesterday. They
have not been recovered by the grappling
appliances, nor have they drifted to the
surface. When dragging operations
fail within a day or two, it is seldom
possible to recover drowned bodies by
continuing the method. Where ' the
location of the bodies is accurately
known, and they are thought to be held
down by weeds, snags or a rocky bottom,
recourse to the diving dress is the only
sure way of recovering them.

COUNCIL HAS TO PAY
Over-aaseaed Property Owners to Get
Their Money Back
Seattle, Wash., Oct. 4.���As a result
of a decision by the Supreme Court,
property holders of Seattle who have
been over-assessed for local improvements for the past 25 years, can collect
their money.
There is at present in the city's cash
depositories $1,169,000 collected from
property owners for work done that
cost less than the estimate.
For five years D. E. McCulloch fought
cases and for five years he lost them.
He spent $11,000 in the fight before he
came to the conclusion that there was
no chance in the courts.
The Supreme Court, however, after
pondering for six months, decided to
decide now. The decision upholds the
law and Mr. McCullough on behalf of
such clients as he has will soon begin
taking away the $1,169,000.
Many of the original victims of the
system are dead, others have moved
away, but their heirs and assigns can
present their claim to the city council
and collect.
PRINCE RUPERT FIXED
Definite   Announcement   Made   By
Seattle Chamber of Commerce
Despite the statement issued recently by the Grand Trunk Pacific
that no arrangements had been made
for the Prince Rupert to run an excursion
to Honolulu, the Seattle Chamber of
Commerce states positively that the
vessel has been secured. Accommodation is rapidly being sold and the Prince
Rupert will leave Seattle on Feb. 2, for
the Hawaiian Islands. A stay of ten
days will be made at Honolulu. Present
indications are that every berth will be
taken.
NEW YORK STOCKS
(Furnished by the Bowneaa Brokerage
Company     )
The stock market for the past week
has given evidence of passing out of the
hands of the narrow element of boardroom traders which has engrossed the
dealings for many weeks. Large blocks
of U. S. Steel, 1,000 to 10,000 share lots
are regarded as suggestive in this direction.   Bonds firm; money easy.
Boston.���The entire copper list showed much firmer all the week with a
decided upward tendency.
Local Stocks.���Hazelton Nine Mile
and Silver Cup show an increasing demand as the merits of these properties
are becoming known. The ore displays
and reports from conservative quarters
have> awakened many investors. Portland Canal has had quite a reaction
following the favorable concentrator
news and he stock was quickly bid up
from 26 to S3 cents where it seems to
have found a temporary level.
Choice Resident Lots
For a few days I offer for sale the best
and highest view lots in Section Six,
being lots .38 and 39 in Block 1. Price
for the two $3000; terms. The adjoining lota are held for homes by our best
people.  W. J. Alder, Alder Block.

HOW TO BE GOOD
Gambling's wicked,
Stop itl
Life's a gamble.. _
Drop it!
Business is a chance, 'tis said,
Crack it, therefore, on the head.
Love's uncertain,
Stop itl
Fortune wavers.
Drop it!'
Death alone is sure, 'tis said;
If you would be good, be dead.
