Eggert Said There is no Trace of

Makes a Statement���Judge Young
Realizes Enormity of the Crime
G. T. Williams, the man who attempted to destroy his rooming house
setting fire to it, will spend the next
jen years in New Westminster1 Peni-
jentiary. The plea of insanity was not
jroven. In fact the doctors evidence
|ent to show that the prisoner was sane
the time he committed the deed and
is fully   alive   to  the    wrongfulness
his act. and tne serious results that
[light follow.
His Honor Judge Young stated that
I there was an possible chance to show
Jniency to the prisoner it would give
pleasure to do so. Under the
ireumstances and in face of the cold
blooded evidence against him there was
nothing else to do but find him guilty.
Dr.   McNeil's   Statement
The Williams,,arson case was resumed !
b-'fore His Honor Judge Young at'
eleven o'clock this morning. Dr. McNeil was the first one to take the stand.
He wished to make a statement explaining the evidence he gave on a
previous case. He said that his first examination of Williams was a very
hurried one and not made for the purpose of discovering his degree of insanity or sanity. He had examined
Williams since very thoroughly and
discovered that his first and hurried
impression of the prisoner's mentality
was wrong and he wished to modify
his previous evidence.
Dr. Eggert was called to the stand
by the prosecution. At the request of
the Chief of Police he made a thorough
examination of the prisoner as to his

he wreck of the Princess May, the
J popular C. P. R. steamer, written
j especially for the Optimist by .Miss
] Winnifred Dobbin, daughter of F. H.
Dobbin, managing director of the
Peterborough Review. Miss Dobbin
is also connected with the Review
staff and has been travelling through
western Canada with side trips into
tlie States for the past seven months.
She was a passenger on the wrecked
steamer and her description is most
thrilling and full of interest. Miss
Dobbin is a guest for a few days of
C. H. and Mrs. Sawle, Fifth avenue.
"The Princess May left Skagway
bout  nine o'clock  Thursday 'evening
th a passenger list of seventy-two
h'l a crew of over sixty. About two
fciock Friday morning she struck a reef
��t off Sentinel Island with such force
M all the passengers were awakened
a few seconds every one was on deck
nd all were anxiously inquiring as to
te reason for the shock. Many of us,
ntieipating danger hunted out the life
pits which were underneath the lower
pith in each stateroom, and made ready
put them on.    Just then the signal
is sounded by four short whistles
���r "all hands at position", and the
Ie boats were lowered from the upper
pck. Word was passed around that every
fie was to be dressed ready to leave
le ship in two minutes. As no baggage
Nd be carried with us, each one
rubbed   small   jewelery   and personal
1fects as could  be    stowed away in
xkets or purses.  When I finally <'��� ^ '
yaelf  on  the, island  fi  -^en  v.. off '������ I
'er, I smiled when I discovers '
1 my hurry I had left my jJurse b �����>* Ci��
fit had brought safely over my
cameras and my fancy work bag.
The ladies were all looked after first
and in a short while all the passengers
had been landed at the light house.
Then the attention of the crew was turned
toward the saving of the baggage of the
passengers. Each stateroom was gone
through, all articles packed in the hand
grips there and then tagged so that their
identification when put on the island
was an easy matter.
Not too much praise can be given
officers and men of the Princess May for
the care that was taken of the effects
of the passengers. With very few exceptions all one's belongings were intact.
When the passengers and baggage
had all been transferred, then provisions
were brought over as the light house
keeper had only his own supplies on
hand. Shortly after the landing coffee
and tea were made and the passengers
felt much refreshed*. About seven o'clock after working steadily at the wireless ever since the collision, an answering
message was received from the Olympia
which was at that time   just off Sitka.
"The wireless station at Juneau was
out of commission and the Olympia
was two days sailing away, so that
Captain McLeod decided to send some
messengers to Juneau in a small boat.
They left the ship about ten o'clock
and reached Juneau about four. In
the meantime a wireless measage had
been transferred from the Olympia to
the Astoria, thence to Seattle and back
to Juneau by cable. As soon as the message was received in Juneau about ten

^Special   To   The   Optimist.)
New York, August 10.���The latest
bulletin of the medical staff of St. Mary's
hospital  issued   this  morning  reads:���
"Gaynor continues to do well* Operation not necessary at present. The
patient's temperature is nearly normal."
From this it is generally hoped that
the mayor will eventually recover,
though it may take a long time.
The indictment for James Gallagher,
who shot the mayor on the German dock,
will be asked for tomorrow. He is to be
charged with felonious assault, the limit
of the sentence for which is twelve years.
His trial will take place early next week.
While the New York papers are
drawing a parallel between the
attack on Mayor        Gaynor,
and the shooting of President Garfield
on the railway platform at Washington,
the London newspapers are drawing one
with the assassination of Premier Boutros
Pasha of Egypt.

Cod's  Home   for   Incurables  '
Evangelist Litch last evening spoke
on God's love in Hell. He showed that
God loves men even in Hell and that he
didn't make hell for man but men make
their own hell. His love is further seen
in isolating sin and making Hell a
quarantine for evil that refuses to be
cured. Hell is God's Home for incurables, self-made cripples that wilfully choose to remain so.
Tonight Mr. Litch's subject is "J esus
and���" Mr. C. B. Walk will sing.

TOOK A LONG CHANCE
Children of Well Known Contractor
Play   With   Dynamite
A local contractor returned to his
home last night for supper to find his
little children busily engaged in hammering something into the plank walk.
Upon investigation he discovered that
the kids had found a box containing
100 dynamite cartridges, each cartridge,
or cap, being of 200 pounds pressure.
It is miraculous that they were not all
blown to pieces and that a lot of property was not damaged. The mother of the children took one cartridge
and endeavored to pick the contents
out with a hair pin. She also took a long
chance with fate. The contractor
quickly confiscated the caps and took
them down town. He presented them to
Aid. Mobley who exhibited the outfit
to some of the other aldermen. Finally
he was induced to confine them to the
harbor for the fish to feed on.

or time of contract.

WHAT IS THERE IN  IT?
In another column of this issue is a letter from a prominent citizen of the city
who signs himself "Ratepayer". The communication refers to a rumor that the
Mayor is disqualified owing to having had a contract for making ballot boxes for
the city, the account for which it is understood has since been passed and paid.
The Optimist is aware that the report has been in circulation some time and although it is a trifling matter, in itself unworthy of seriousconsideration.it contains,
if true, possibilities of later difficulties. The indirect charge contained in the rumor
should either be exponged or frankly admitted.
It would cost the city a few cents to inform the citizens when it is contemplated
shutting off the water supply, yet the council prefers to let citizens take their chances
on having a boiler burn out and experience other inconvenience rather than give
a line of advertising to the local daily papers which have done more to boost Prince
Rupert than all   other boosters together.
The telephone company arranged to have the opening of the service to-day. but
just as soon as the plant was voted into the hands of the city council the opening
was postponed. The merchants begin to suspect that the council cannot even start a
telephone.
CITY GARBAGE
NEEDS ATTENTION
ALD.  MOBLEY  SAYS  DYNAMITE
IS RECKLESSLY HANDLED
City Clerk Reported Telephone Bylaw Carried.���Council Completed
the Deal With the Company.���
Fuel  and  Food  By-law.
The medical health officer requests
the city council to take up the matter
of collecting and disposing of the city
garbage. Aid. Mobley asks for more
stringent regulations for the handling
of dynamite. Other similar matters
were dealt with by the aldermen last
night and then the by-laws were taken
up again.
City    Garbage
The medical health officer' reported
recommending that the council take
up at once the gathering and disposal
of city garbage. He asked that the city
engineer be instructed to prepare plans
for gathering the garbage.���The report
was adopted.
The city engineer reported that the
work of giving street lines and grades
be left to surveyors in private practice
as such lines can only be given by a B. C.
Provincial Land Surveyor. If the city
undertook the work a land surveyor
would have to be employed in the engineer's office all the time.���Referred to
the streets committee.
Telephone   By-law
The City Clerk reported, as returning
officer, that 179 votes had been cast
on the telephone by-law on Monday and
of that number 9 were against it and 170
in favor of it.
Handling    Dynamite
Aid. Mobley took occasion to draw
the attention of the council to the fact
explosives were being carelessly handled
in the city. He moved that the building
inspector be instructed to interview
the contractors using explosives and ascertain the manner in which they were
handling such things.
Aid. Hilditch will apply for permission to build a roadway from Second
avenue along Seventh street to First
avenue so that he may get his building
material in for the erection of the Peter
Black hotel. He will also apply for permission to take the roadway away again
when he is finished with the building.
Moved by Aid. Mobley and Aid.
Lynch that the Telephone By-law be
read a third time and finally adopted.���
Carried.
This by-law goes into effect at once.
A by-law to ratify the agreement
between the city and the Telephone
Co re taking over the system was introduced a first, second and third time
and passed.
The Fuel and Food by-law was introduced and read a second time, and
the council went into the committee of
the whole.
BIG   SALARY   LIST
Council   Passed   Over   Four   Thousand Dollars for Month
The salary list at the city hall for the
past month was $4,292,28 and of that
amount $18 was for street work. See
council report as follows:
The finance committee reported recommending that accounts amounting
to $1,242.32 and a pay roll of $4,292.28
On motion of Aid. Pattullo and Aid.
Lynch that the report be adopted and
the accounts paid.
Aid. Pattullo pointed out that a
considerable portion of the pay roll
would eventually be charged to capital
account.

o'clock at the home of C. H. Kearns,
Taylor street, when Miss Edith Olive,
daughter of W. G. and Mrs. Jewett,
of 2319 Cypress street, Vancouver,
became the bride of George Rhodes
Priestman, second engineer of the
Steamer Distributor, of this city. The
nuptial knot was tied by Rev. A. M
Ross, pastor of the First Presbyterian
church, and in the presence of a few friend
and relatives. The bride was becomingly
attired in a white linen travelling suit
and was attended by Miss Margaret
Gleeson, of Portland, Ore., and she wore
a pretty green linen suit. The groom was
assisted by C. H. Kearns. After the
ceremony the bridal party partook of
a dainty wedding breakfast after which
the happy young couple left on a short
honey-moon trip. Upon their return
they will take up their residence in
Prince Rupert.

Plot   to   Kill   President
Willemstad, Curaco, August 3.���
Rumors are in circulation in Venezuela
that the government discovered a plot

Venezuela of prominent citizens give
some credence to the rumors.

WILLIAMS GETS
LONG SENTENCE
CONTINUED PROM PAGE 1
sanity or insanity. He had also examined him on two subsequent occasions
and found no symptoms of insanity
whatever. One one occasion Dr. McNeil
was also present and they were unanimous in their conclusion.
To Judge Young Dr. McNeil said that
he questioned Williams very closely
as to the injury he had received on his
head some two years ago. The injury
was only a scalp and flesh wound and
was quite common. Such injuries have
lead up to insanity but there was not
evidence to show that such results
had followed this accident.
To Mr. Patmore the witness said that
Williams might suffer from all the
symptoms the witnesses said he did and
still be quite sane and have a full knowledge of right and wrong.
Judge's   Charge
After the lawyers presented their
case His Honor Judge Young told
Williams to stand up. He said "There
is nothing for me to do but find you
guilty as much as I would like to find
otherwise. You have been ably defended by Mr. Patmore who has done
all in his power. Viewing the evidence
as a whole I cannot come to any other
conclusion than that you were fully
aware of what you were doing; that you
wilfully set fire to your building; and
that your motive was to collect the
insurance. Except the charge of murder,
that of arson is one of the most serious.
Had the attempt been successful the
result would have been too appalling
to contemplate, both from loss by fire
and from accidents. Under existing
circumstances in Prince Rupert the deed
is of the most serious nature. The town
might have been destroyed for a paltry
sum of money and at that it is very
doubtful if you would have collected
any of the money.
"Have you anything to say why I
should not pass sentence upon you?"
asked the Judge.
"No"   replied  the   prisoner.
"You will be confined in New Westminster penitentiary for ten years."
said the judge.
Court then adjourned and the prisoner
was lead away to the cells.

Mining  Expert   McDonald   and   Representative of Omineca Herald Make
A   Thorough   Inspection   of   Most
Promising   Mining   District.
Recent developments on Ninemile
mountain have attracted so much attention lately that a representative of
the Herald went up on Wednesday to
see some of the showings that have
caused so much comment. The party
consisting of J. B. L. McDonald, who
is interested in both the Silver Cup and
Sunrise groups, Hugh Harris, one of
the locators of both groups, and the
Herald man left town at seven o'clock
in the morning. The new trail which the
government is builcfing up the mountain
was traveled and while not completed
by two miles affords the easiest means
of reaching the summit. This trail
is a very good piece of work and reflects
credit on the foreman, Shel Robinson
sible, there was so little sleeping accommodations, at the light house that
we dreaded having to spend the night
there.
"When the Georgia finally came alongside it did not take long to transfer the
passengers and luggage from the island
and a start was made for Juneau, 35
miles distant. The Rustler was met a
mile or so out and, after leaving Mrs.
Spickett and Mr. Oliver with us, went
on to the Princess May.
"Captain   McLeod   and   his   officers
had  the  sympathy  of  the  passengers
and before leaving the island a hearty
expression of their feeling was made by
Mr.  Ingram of  Minneopolis on behalf
of the lest of the passengers.   All those
on board who had cameras spent a busy
morning getting views of the damaged
I ship.   When it was low tide about nine
\ o'clock we walked over the rocks and
| sea weed almost out to the ship and we
] could see quite plainly where the rocks
had torn the bottoms.    If there is no
heavy sea for a few days they will be
1 able to save the boat as at present it

Mail Service to the Interior
Editor   Optimist,���The   opening   up
I and development of a new country is
one of the most interesting periods of
1 its history.  The pioneers suffer many inconveniences but the government of our
j country (in most cases) strive to meet
ithe  absolutely  necessary  requirements
i by giving the best mail service possible,
the  most  necessary  problem  to solve
in the development of a new country.
Many   new   districts   are   unfortunate
(in this respect having opposition members
as representatives who cannot  always
obtain the ear and good will of the
Postmaster  General,  others represented
by members who are careless of the duties
they owe their constituents and neglect
j to  impress upon the government the
necessity of supplying the new country
with  the   best   possible   mail   service, j
j Only  a  few  constituencies  in  Canada
| can boast of having for their representativ
i a  minister of  the  federal  government
who at all times has the ear and con-
i fidence of his brother ministers.
Early in the year some enterprizing
i citizens of your city,  Port  Essington,
i Kitselas  Canyon,   Hazelton  and  other
points formed a company put up the
money and built the fine River Steamer |
Inlander   which  is  now  operating  on!
��� the Skeena river with such great success.
The Prince Rupert Board of Trade;
' realizing the importance of this to their \
1 merchants and citizens in general passed
a resolution recommending that a mail
subsidy the same as given the Hudson's
Bay Company of Victoria be given the
Steamei  Inlande.  and forwarded same
to our representative the Hon. William
Templeman.
The company after this received a
letter from the Sup't of Mail Service
in British Columbia asking if they would
I accept the same contract as the Hudson's
! Bay had and they immediately replied
they  would, thanking  the  depaitment
i for the consideration shown but that
ends it.    The Steamer Inlander never
received. The mail contract the people
of   the   Interior   of   British   Columbia
| and Skeena River are not as important
j and   powerful   as   the   Hudson's   Bay
| Company of Victoria and they have t.
depend at present on the old Steamer
Hazeltcn for their mail and this is in
face of the fact that the Steamer Inlander  is  making  five-day    trips  to
Hazelton and return.���notwithstanding
inspectors and others have made this
clear to the department.
Mr. Templeman's home, business and
interests are in Victoria. The Hudson's
Bay Company have no votes or influence in this part of the country but
during the short time he expects to be
our representative we expected a square
deal  in  the mail service.

IS THE MAYOR
DISQUALIFIED?
CORRESPONDENT  TO   OPTIMIST
THINKS HE MAY BE
Asks to Have Point Decided Before
There is an Opportunity for Any
Trouble.���Supplied Ballot Boxes
For the Municipal Elections
Editor the Optimist,���
Dear Sir,���Even at this late date
persistent rumor as the qualification or rather the disqualification of
Mayor Stork, the present head of the
council, travels apace. "Is it true that
the mayor had the contract to supply
the ballot boxes for the city?" is a topic
continually discussed on the streets.
Although having a contract directly or
indirectly with the municipality disqualifies a member of or a candidat
for .the council one would not think the
supplying of a few ballot boxes a very
serious matter. It is, however, a contract and might be serious if engagements entered into on behalf of the city
should be repudiated if too advantageous to the city and a likely loss to a
contractor. Before the horse is stolen
is the time to lock the stable door and
the present should be an opportune time
to have even doubtful questions settled.

MASSET  NEWS
Mr. Cameron, representing the Natural Resources Company, of Vancouver
is at the new townsite arranging for the
opening up of streets and placing of lots
on the market. W. H. Hammond, president of the company is expected this
month to look over the property.
Wallace A. Purdy, aged 60 years, died
at Kundis Slough, on the 3rd inst. His
death was very sudden and was caused
by gastritis. The remains were interred
on the settlement. A wife and seven
children live in Nova Scotia. The deceased was a native of Bear River, N. S.
and has been about two years on Masset
Inlet.
Conductor of Public Works Campbell
with twenty-two men, have reached
the large obstruction on the Yakoun
River and are doing good work. There
is five more jambs to remove before
the lake is reached. It is doubtful
whether the work will be completed
this year.
The strawberry season is still on in
the neighborhood of Masset. One family
picked twenty pounds of large wild
berried on the 4th inst. Potatoes and
garden produce is not ready for the market, while small fruits and apples will
ripen late in September.
It is understood that boring operations will commence in a few weeks on
the coal lands opposite the Masset
Indian Reserve. A Vancouver syndicate
owns the ground and will develope the
property in anticipation of supplying
the  Prince  Rupert  market.
The Dominion Government steamer
Quadra is erecting a lighthouse on North
Island at the extreme northerly end of

Metlakatla.
The Anchor Investment Company will
soon begin operations in their Saw Mill.
A quantity of timber arrived and will
be shipped to Prince Rupert. The local
trade demands the operation of a mill
in the vicinity of the two Masset settlements.

You are Liable
To be accidentally killed, crip.
pled, blinded, disabled or taken
ill at any time, and the value of
your time (which is money to
you) may be destroyed in a
moment.
No reasonable man goes with*
out protection against loss from
the destruction of his property.
Did it ever occur to you that
your time has as distinct a value
as your property, or that your
life may be the property of your
family?
This protection is a duty you
owe yourself and those who may
be dependent upon you.
How dare you ignore this danger and go without adequate protection for yourself or family,
against Losb of Time, Total Disablement or Death?
United We Stand
Divided We Fall
Insured we succeed, Un-insured
we fail. Unite yourself with the
thousands of policy-holders in the
Company that
Stands First
In the Liberality of Contracts,
In Adjustment of Losses,
In Financial Strength.
If you are not fully insured,
let us attend to this important
matter for you.
