TRIAL BEGINS
EARLY MONDAY
CRIPPEN AND LE NEVE LANDED
AT   LIVERPOOL
Crowd Gathered at Four O'clock
This Morning and Acted Ugly When
Prisoners Were Landed at Dock.���
Preliminary Hearing on  Monday.
(Special to the Optimist)
Liverpool, August 27.���Dr. Crippen
and Mile Le Neve, with Inspector Dew
and Sergrant Mitchell, both of Scotland
Yard, landed here this afternoon from
the steamer Megantic.. A great crowd
had been waiting on the pier since four
o'clock this morning, and the police had
to erect barriers to keep the people back.
The two prisoners were taken to an
hotel and allowed to rest before starting
for London. The crowd at the dock made
a hostile demonstration. Crippen was
unmoved and Miss Le Neve was badly
frightened.
The preliminary hearing of the couple
takes place before Judge de Rutcen one
Monday morning. Mr. Newton will
appear for Crippen and who will appear
with him has not been announced.
Counsel for the crown have also been
selected but no announcement of the
names has been made.
Inspector Dew, although probably
the best known man on the White
Star liner, had entered his name on the
passengers' register as "Silas P. Doyle,"
and consistently he had registered his
assistant as "M. F. D. Johnston." His
two prisoners were also entered under
false names. Tonight the couple will be
lodged in a London jail to await their
trial on Monday morning.
Geographical    Congress
Stockholm, August 26���(Special)���
The international geographical congress
concluded its sessions last night. It will
meet in Canada in 1913..
AVIATOR HAS
A BIG FALL
DROPS INTO ATLANTIC OUTSIDE
OF   SANDY   HOOK
Biplane Became Unmanageable And
He Fell Nine Hundred Feet ���
Says He was Unconscious for
Fifteen   Minutes   After  The Fall
Special to the Optimist)
New York, August 27.���Aviator Mars
broke his flight record today, when he
leaped from a falling aeroplane into the
sea near Sandy Hook. He was driving
a Curtiss biplane when the wind carried
him out of the harbor to sea. Over the
ocean the machine became unmanag-
able and collapsed. The aviator had a
close call of being struck by the wreckage.
When rescued he was slowly swimming
toward the shore and almost exhausted,
He says he fell from a height of nine
hundred feet, and he claims that after
he struck the water he was unconscious
for a quarter of an hour.
Moving   His   House
Mr. W. R. Morrison of the Dominion
Government Wireless department is
engaged at present in the ticklish task
of house moving. His residence on the
G. T. P. reserve, 2nd avenue stands at
present jacked up, and is making steady
progress along .Second avenue on its
way to block 18, aSeventh avenue which
will be its permanent location.
Mr. Morrison holds a building license
from the G. T. P. but this in no way
prevented him being put to the present
inconvenience  and  expense.
The house will take a day or two on its
travels to Seventh avenue and Mr.
Morrison will occupy it at night during
the journey. His family, however, are
at present staying at Medicine Hat,
Alberta.
TO RAISE THE MAY
Heavier Gear to Be Sent and Another
Attempt   Made
Victoria, August 27.���Heavier gear
is being sent to Sentinel Island and when
it arrives another attempt will be made
to raise the Princess May.
Steamer Beatrice arrived from the
north this morning and reported that
the May was not yet raised but the men
were at work on her as the Beatrice
passed. A salvage man told one of the
officers of the Beatrice that he feared
the tackle brought up by the salvage
company would not be strong enough.
For  Dr.   Crippen's  Trial
London, August 26���(Special)���Counsel for the crown and for the defence in
the Crippen case have been selected but
not yet announced.
DECLARE FOR
CHURCH UNION
OVERWHELMING VOTE GIVEN AT
CONFERENCE
Presbyterians, Methodists and Con-
gregationalists Now Practically One
Denomination Except For Necessary   Details   of   Reorganization.
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, August 27.���By an overwhelming vote the Methodist conference
yesterday declared in favor of church
union. This is on a basis that had already
been agreed upon by a special committee
composed of Presbyterian, Methodist
and Congregational delegates. The vote
was two hundred and twenty for and
thirty-five against the union.
It is believed that this ends the long
continued discussion upon the subject
as all that remains now is for similar
resolutions to be passed by the two other
bodies.
ONE OF OUR VISITORS
Canadian    Barrister   and   Magazine
Writer of Varied Experience
Among the newspaper men who went
to Prince Rupert with Sir Wilfrid
Laurier's party was Donald D ownie,
B. C. L., a press and magazine writer
of varied experience. Born, educated
and called to the bar in Canada, Mr.
Downie was early attracted to newspaper
work. He was some years in London
and ten years in France, where he established and conducted the Paris-
American. During the stirring times
of the Dreyfus trials and agitations
Mr. Downie was in Paris, where he had
interviews with Zola and others connected
with these events. The Paris-American
had a period of great success but fell
on evil days. Mr. Downie's association with this journal, and with the
business end of the journals on the
Continent has made him more or less
acquainted with most European countries
He now resides in Spokane.���Vancouver
News Advertiser.
VICE-PRESIDENT E. J. CHAMBERLAIN
general manager of the grand TRUNK PACIFIC
Of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway
officials now visiting here E. J. Chamberlain is one of the best known for the
reason that he has paid several visits
here. He is the first vice-president and
general manager of the road and on
this trip he is accompanied by Mrs.
Chamberlain.
Mr. Chamberlain was for several
years general manager of the Canada-
Atlantic    railway,  and  occupied   that
position at the time that railway was
taken over by the Grand Trunk. He
then resigned and engaged in private
business, principally railway contracting, in Mexico and Canada. He
came back to the Grand Trunk in his
present position about two years ago.
His official headquarters is Winnipeg,
but he still retains his handsome home
in Ottawa. The official residence of
President Hays is Montreal.
AT MILE SIXTY
THIS MORNING
STEEL MAKES GOOD SPEED EASTWARD
President Hays Party Got to Steel
End in 3 Hours Yesterday. Superintendent Mehan Satisfied with
xac to
Progrt    jbut Wants  More  Men
Superintendent W. C. C. Mehan
has returned to the city after going up
the line to the end of steel with President Hays. The President is at present
inspecting the grade ahead of steel and
will not be back in Prince Rupert till
Sunday.
Superintendent Mehan says that the
line is making rapid progress eastward
in spite of the shortage of labour.
"They were at mile post 58 when we
arrived " he said "we made the run in
three hours, pretty good running over
a new line, and found things well forward
and going ahead fast on our arrival.
I expect thay are at Mile 60 today.
"Its men we want to keep on progressing. We have a fair squad, but we
can do with many more."
"What steps are being taken now to
increase the supply of labor?" asked
the Optimist. "Well we are continually
advertising " said Mr. Mehan "but
we are not getting an adequate response
to our calls for men. We get them in
ones and twos when we want them in
scores."

NUMBER OF
DEAD RANGERS
FORESTRY     DEPARTMENT     REFUSES TO DISCLOSE IT
One Officer Had to Keep Fire
Fighters From Stampeding With
A Rifle���Half Million Dollar Fire
On   Tacoma   Waterfront.
       o
(Special to the Optimist)
Spokane, Wash., August 27.���The
forestry department refuse to give out
the number of rangers that are dead as
the result of the recent forest fires, on
the excuse that the books are in confusion.
A story told by one of the survivore
shows that the loss of life among the
rangers would have bwn much less if
there had been any discipline. In the
Clearwater fire the officer in charge had
to keep the men from stampeding by
covering them with a rifle.
Conflagration at Tacoma
Tacoma, August 27.���A waterfront
fire at midnight wiped out property
worth half a million dollars, when the
plant of E. J. McNelly and the lumber
yards were completely gutted.

Judge Young Warns  Knife Wieldera
Very   Sternly
Read The   Optimist
Judge Young presided over a provincial court case in the city court room
yesterday afternoon the case being one
of wounding with a knife, the principals
being three Chinamen from Essington.
The affair occurred in the Chinese
dwelling house at Messrs. Wadham's
Cannery Port Essington.
An argument arose late on Tuesday
night between Chung Dy, and Wong
Poy regarding the comparative speeds
of the steamers "Venture" and "Coquitlam". There was wine in the bunk
occupied by the disputants and it
appears that they came to blows. Chung
Dt grabbed a bottle and ran. Wong Poi
grabbed a knife and Bah Yip who
intervened got his hand severly cut in
the scuffle.
Judge Young dismissed the case,
it being pretty clear that the cut was
accidentally caused, but the Judge very
sternly warned the chinamen that any
one caught using a knife would be dealt
with most severely.
"I never give less than three years
sentence to a man found guilty of
deliberately wielding a knife against
another" said Judge Young.
Mr. Williams of Williams & Manson
appeared for the defence and Mr. Warton
for the crown.
A   Power   For   Good
The moving picture has become too
great a power for good or for evil to be
left to itself. Its possibilities for agreeable and innocent entertainment are
boundless, and so are its potentialities
for education. History, science, travel,
industrialism���these and a hundred other
fields, if fully cultivated, will serve to
make scenes of crime and ruffiansim
superfluous.���Chicago   Record-Herald.

THE NEW TAX PLAN
The New Westminster Columbian says: "The single tax leaven is working
throughout the British Columbia communities. Vancouver's example in abolishing
the tax on improvements has had far-reaching influence because of the impetus the
new system of taxation has givea to building in that city. While the rapid growth
of Vancouver's population would have itself created a building boom, undoubtedly
the abolition of the tax on improvements has made it profitable for building to be
extensively undertaken by property owners and by builders who have bought
vacant lots on speculation. In turn the industrial activity that building creates,
has drawn population in a greater degree than the natural expansion of even a
terminal railway city and seaport would influence home building and settlement.
The rapid growth of the city from various causes, industrial and commercial, has,
also, so increased the value of all land within the city's boundaries that the greater
assessment has permitted the tax rate to remain the same this year as last year,
namely at 22 miles on the dollar. Thus the tax rate, the unprecedented building
activity, the increase in population and community wealth has amply justified the
City Council in adopting the new tax principle.
"All towns and cities may not find the single tax plan so satisfactory. But
there is no question that in a new community where land values are being rapidly
and greatly increased by the growth in'population and extension of civic conveniences, the principle of taxing land values alone, has much to commend it. The plan
is not perfect, but modifications of the single tax idea to secure the placing of a
share of the burden of civic taxation on buildings that receive the benefits of fire
and police protection, and from improvements even up matters and conform to the
axiom that taxation should be in proportion to the benefits conferred. It is, therefore,
a mark of the progressive spirit of British Columbia communities that consideration is being given to the new tax system, Prince Rypert having affopted the plan
of taxing land exclusive of improvements thereon, and Vernon ratepayers having
recently declared for its adoption, while Revelstoke is viewing  it favorably."
SIDE   LIGHTS
Being   a   Ratepayers   Report   of   a
City    Council    Meeting ,
-I	
The following is a report handed t
the Optimist by a ratepayer who attended  the  last  meeting  of  the  city
council.     Not  being a short-hand reporter his    report    is   not   verbatim.
The electric problem, or throwing
light on the city darkness:
Aid. Pattullo���If we can't eliminate
all the danger of fire in section one we
should eliminate a part. (I am fairly
well     isolated).
Aid. Smith���Not knowing exactly
where I am let us postpone it as I know
they are bluffing.
Wait till the bluff is called.
Aid. Naden���We worried along without
lights last year; we can worry along again.
Our grandfathers had no electric lights.
Aid. Barrow���I know all about harnessing the tides to develope electric
power but my ignorance of this street
lighting is colossal. To be safe I will vote
against it.
Le Roi Mine in Liquidation
London, August 23.���At a meeting today the shareholders of the Le Roi

STREET   GRADING  OPERATIONS
Good Progreaa Being Made and Expected  to Continue
The excavation work in connection
with the grading of Tenth and Eleventh
and Beach Avenue West is now under
way, the contract in the hands of Mr.
P. John Swanson having been signed.
Messrs. Latrace, the contractors for the
planking have not yet commenced operations though their contract is signed,
as they are waiting for a supply of plank.
The contracts for grading and planking
on Eighth and Hays Cove avenues have
not yet been signed, but this detail will
be attended to forthwith and the city
engineer expects that Messrs. Mclnues
& Kelly and Messrs. Reilly & Roberts
will make rapid progress with the work
entrusted to them.
Sewer Work Will Proceed
Work on the sewer contract which
has been at a standstill on Second avenue
for want of material will be resumed on
Monday morning. Messrs. S. B. MeMordie & Co., who are the contractors
for the job, received a big consignment
of material per the Vadso and will now
press on with the work.

TO STEWART
NEW
TOWNSITE  TO  BE CALLED
PORTLAND   CANAL
Sounds Conflicting But May Be
Changed Later On���Will Be Terminus, It is said, of Canadian
Northern  Transcontinental  Line.
Under the name of "Portland Canal"
the 160 acres adjoining the original
townsite of Stewart on the east, being
part of the acreage owned by Donald
D. Mann, Alvo von Alvensleben and E.
P. Davis, K. C, and divided into lots
25 by 100 feet, were placed on the market Monday by the townsite department of the Canadian Northern railway
T. S. Darling of Winnipeg, manager
of the townsite department, under
whose direction the sale will be made,
left for the south Sunday and will arrange for the disposal of lots in Victoria, Vancouver, Winnipeg and Toronto. An office will be opened by the
land department at Vancouver to handle
both Stewart and Port Mann    realty.
According to Mr. Darling it is the
intention to dispose of no lots south
of Princess street (Seventh) for the
present, except warehouse sites adjoining the railway tracks. So as to obtain an idea of the location of the
streets, it may be stated that Portland
Canal is not laid out in uniformity with
Stewart, as the line of the railway divides the two townsites .consequently
even numbered streets running east
and west are not carried through.
Starting from the south the streets are
Shore, corresponding to Third street of
the parent townsite; Douglas, to Fifth;
Princess, to Seventh; Centre to Ninth:
McBride to Eleventh; Royal, to Thirteenth; Cassiar to Fifteenth; Yukon,
to Seventeenth. North and south the
street names are King on the west,
then Main, Queen and Davis to the
east. The streets are 66 feet wide with
the exception of Main which is 80 with
10-foot alleys. There are about 1200
lots of which a quarter revert to the
provincial government.
It is the intention of the management to instal a water and sewerage
system at an early date together with
sidewalks around the principal business
blocks.

Hon. George P. Graham, Minister
of Railways and Canals, a few days
ago gave' an emphatic denial to the
rumor that Mackenzie & Mann were
negotiating with the "Government for
the lease and; operation 'ki 'the:;.proposed Husson's Bay Railway. Mr.
Graham declared that the projpcjt includes much more than a railway, and
that the scheme now under wdy will
be carried to a conclusion without
delay.
The alternative propositions by the
Tsimpsean Light and Power Co., and
Messrs. Walters and Durant will be
before the City Council at their meeting
on Monday night when the problem
of lighting the city will again be discussed.
A typewritten statement detailing
the Tsimpsean Co's prososition is already in the hands of the members of
council, and Mr. Walters of the firm of
Walters and Durant is to arrive
tomorrow by the Prince George
bringing with him a detailed statement
his firm's proposition to lay before
the council.
Mr. Brutinell the Tsimpsean Power
Coy's Engineer is naturally dubious
regarding the councils' wisdom in con
sidering any minor schemes.
"It is never an economical plan" he
says "to attempt to utilize a minor
water power for the production of light
or power in any public service either
municipal or commercial. Of course
if any one is willing to put up the money
for a low power scheme there is no obje-
tion his doing it���only he will lose his
money.
"But a proposition having in view
much remunerative business in a year
or two, and having a large water power
at command can afford to lay out a
good deal of capital and run even at a
loss for the initial years of the scheme.
In my opinion the Tsimpsean water
power is the only one of really practical
commercial value on the const for a
considerable distance, and of course we
should like to do business with Prince
Rupert this winter even though it means
an earlier outlay for plant for us.''

and
City Engineer Davis will have the
new 3000 foot pipe from the Lower
Creek to the G. T. P. pumphouse
completed by Monday. In the meantime
however, the rain has increased the supply
of water in the upper creek sufficiently
to .supply water for all purposes.
After Monday the citizens will experience no more trouble from shortage
of water, as the measures taken by Mr.
Davis will give an adequate supply independent of rain fall, for the present
demand. When the permanent water
supply is brought in from Woodworth
Lake next year Prince Rujiert wull be
in possession of an ample water supply
to meet the city's expansion.
By making use of water supply of
both the upper and lower cree s the city
engineer will be in a position to guarantee
a steady supply of water even during thc
winter months when w ter is usually
scarce, the flow from the lower creek
just tapped by the new pipe being ample
to recompense the res rvoir for any
shortage of in flow from the upper creek
due to drought or frost.

(Special to the Optimist)
Berlin, August 27.���The speech of
the Kaiser lust night, in which he declared that he was emperor by divine
right and not by act of parliaments and
assemblies of men, is bound to have a
deep political effect. The leading newspapers criticize the speech adversely an
are claiming that the chancellor was
privy to it.
The prediction is that it will lead to
a strong dissention on the KaiseiJ'-b
constitutional position when tha Reichstag assembles, ft will be remembere
that during the last session of the German
parliament the emperor was severely
criticized for talking too much and in
his speeches arrogating to himself
arbitrary powers. Probably the action
then taken will be followed up with a
more drastic course.''

Three miles below Hazelton the Grand Trunk Railroad turns toward

the Skeena River and the Railroad the Townsite, Sealey, is located.
Here are the Warehouses, the Stores and the Offices, as well as the Pay
Station of Foley, Welch & Stewart, the Grand Trunk contractors. Within a mile of here are five of their big camps. At present all boats call
here and before long trains will be running this far.
Although the Government have just accepted the suivey of lots and
made their choice of blocks, and although the sale of lots has just started, buildings have been commenced on upwards of twenty lots and before
long Sealey will be a good-sized town.
Now is the time to get in on the ground floor and invest in a lot.
When the streets are all graded, the buildings completed, and the trains
running, the present investors will realize upwards of 200 per cent, profit.
Write us at once for particulars, or if you have already reserved a
lot, advice us with reference to same.

PRINCIPALLY   ALONG   LINE   OF
THIS   RAILWAY
Government Scheme Whereby Town*
Will Be Populated aa Faat aa Towna
Are Laid Out Hundred and Fifty
Feedera    to    Prince    Rupert. *
Ottawa, August 23.���The Canadian
government and the railroads, working
in harmony, intended to lay out aqd
populate 220 towns during next year
and the remainder of this.
It is stated that an average of three
new towns will be placed on the map
of Canada every week during the next
eighteen months.
Along the new Grand Trunk Pacific
system will be placed about 150 of
these embryo cities; the Canadian Pacific railway will build up new towns
along its roadbed whenever there are
more than sixteen miles between existing stations; the Canadian Northern
has entered the new town-bu lding
scheme and will place thirty-five new
towns as it drives its 3,000-mile extension through the unbroken wilderness
of the northwest.
The government has mapped out a
scheme whereby it will populate the
new towns as fast as the townsites
are laid out. First the ralroad will
erect a station, then an elevator will
be built, so that the farmers will be
assured of a local market for their
crops; then a school building will be
started, and while all these preparations are under way the host of Canadian immigration agents in the United
States wil be actively engaged in trying to secure an American population
for the towns and surrounding farm
lands.
Edmonton's   Million-Dollar   Bridge.
The big million-dollar high-level bridge
across the Saskatchewan, which is to
connect the twin cities of Edmonton and
Strathcona, is to be commenced at once,
the contract for the approaches and substructure having been let by the Canadian Pacific Railway to Messrs. John
Gunn & Sons, of Winnipeg. The contract for the superstructure will not be
let yet. The bridge is designed to carry
railway, street car and vehicular traffic,
and when completed will be the largest
and most costly in Western Canada with
the exception of the Government bridge
at New Westminster. The building of
the bridge has been desired by the two
cities for years. The greater part of
the cost will be defrayed by the railway
company, but substantial grants have
been made by the Dominion Government,
by the Provincial Government, and by
both cities.
New  Waterway  For  Grain
The survey along the River Saskatchewan in connection with the prososed
waterway for grain from Edmonton
to Winnipeg is being made. By the time
Parliament assembles it is expected
preliminary estimates of the cost will
be available. While not officially stated,
it is thought that the work necessary
to navigation along the Saskatchewan
can be done for about $15,000,000,
exclusive of the construction of locks
to overcome the Grand. Falls. In
some places, the river is six feet in depth,
and in others forty feet, and a good deal
of dredging will be necessary. Little
doubt exists as to the feasibility of the
scheme, and if it is finally decided to
proceed, a preliminary appropriation
will probably be made next session.
"Be good," but do not complain if
the words do not prove the open space
to east street.

The Delay     was    Fatal
Sir William Crooks, the eminent
scientist, who has been appointed a
member of the Order of Merit, was one
of the earliest amateur photographers.
He experimented with the came a as
far back as 1855, and was always saying
to his wife, "Sit," She used to reply.
"It sounds like a hen." Sir Williams is
rather fond of telling the following story
as illustrating the "instantaneous" knowledge needed in the profession of medicine.
The professor of a certain medical
college cited a hypothetical case on one
occasion, and asked a student how much
of a certain medicine should be administered to the sufferer. " A table-
spoonful." answered the young man.
In about a minute, however, he raised
his hand and said, "Professor, I would
like to alter my answer to that question."
The doctor took out his watch. "My
young friend." he remarked, "your
patient has been dead forty seconds."

THIS IS GOING SOME
Travelled Over Thirty-six   Thousand
Miles During Last Year
George H. Pope, the veteran right-of-
way man, may be classed as a traveller
bearing something of a record. He has
been in the right-of-way business for
twenty-six years, and before that was a
large exporter of rattle, his business
leading him to visit many of the ports
of Europe frequently. He is a transcontinental right-of-way man, having
purchased lands for railway uses from
ocean to ocean. Not entirely for the
Grand Trunk Pacific but other Canadian
railways also. For the latter he covered
in 1909   36,507 miles of travelling.
On his present trip here with Mr.
Dempster he will conclude the right-
of-way agreements as far as Fort George,
He has completed his work for the first
hundred miles, and he will complete
the second hundred miles on the trip
he starts upon in a few days. The next
stretch will be to Fort George, but this
may not be completed this season and
will be resumed next spring. On the
prairie sections his work goes on all winter.
Going   Up   River
J. R. Talpey is leaving for Hazelton
today on the Operator in company with
J. P. Campbell, superintendent of the
Silver Cup Mines. Mr. Talpey says
so many inquiries concerning the Silver
Cup Mines are being directed to him
that he has determined to visit the property and get the fullest information
relative to the important discoveries
recently made. Mr. Talpey says further
he finds a wide-spread interest in the
Silver Cup mines, probably occasioned
by the remarkable ore discoveries on
the property and the recent report of
Mr. W. W. Leach, Government geologist as regards their continuity.

HIGH   EXPRESS  RATES
Considerable   Reduction   Could   Be
Made in the Large Profits
There has been presented to the
United States interstate commerce commissions a petition by 120 great commercial organizations in all parts of the
United States, a petition calling for a
thorough investigation by that body of
the methods of the express companies.
The petitioners complain that the present express charges in the United States
are unreasonable and extortionate and
that the injustice to which the skipper
is subjected in this particular is flagrant and continuous.
It is alleged that competition in express service in the United States has
been largely eliminated, that unjust
and unreasonable regulations and practises are enforced, that the rate for express freight is from two and a half to
four times the first class freight rate
and that the railways receive for moving
100 pounds of small parcels as high as
37 1-2 times the amount charged by them
for 100 pounds of first class freight.
All of which serves as a reminder to
us on this side of the international
line that we are still waiting to hear the
result of the investigation into the methods' of express companies in this country which was entered upon some time
ago by the Dominion railway commission. It will be remembered that at
the time the express companies' earnings were first brought before public
attention at a sitting of the railway
commission the figures adduced were
such as to indicate that a very considerable reduction could be made in the
companies' charges and still the companies would reap very large profits.

BOARD OF ARBITRATORS
View the Grounds on the   Haysport
Townsite  Yesterday
The first steps in the arbitration
proceedings between the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Co., and Messrs. Adams
and Noble, owners of the Haysport
townsite, were taken yesterday when the
board of arbitrators with counsel went
out to view the grounds. The townsite
people ask $3.00 per foot from the
railway for the privilege of runhing the
road through the townsite. The company
will require a total of 3.69 acres. The
right of way will average about 50 feet
wide so that a large amount of money
is involved. The railway company,
through Geo. H. Pope, land commissioner
for the company with headquarters at
Winnipeg, offers $40 per acre, or about
$160 altogether..
All that was done yesterday was to
look over the grounds. The owners of
the townsite asked that the proceedings
be held over for a time to enable them to
get their witnesses together. The company acceeded to the request and it is
not likely that there will be a sitting
for the purpose of taking evidence inside
a month.
Haysport townsite is situated across
the Skeena river from Port Essington.
It was purchased some time ago by
Messrs. Adams and Noble for the purpose
of establishing a town on the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway.
The Board of arbitrators are:���
Alfred Carss, appointed by the G. T. P.
Geo. R. Naden, appointed by the
owners of the townsite and T. D. Pattullo, appointed by the county judge.
F. W. Fisher and Geo. H. Pope represente
the company, and L. W. Patmore and
Naden and Adams represent the
townsite owners.

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 without 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 Loss of Time, Total Disablement or Death?
