DUMPINGON STREET
COUNCIL   WILL   NOT  PROHIBIT
BUT WILL REGULATE IT.
Muskeg and Rock Will Be Uied in
Building the Streets���Building
Operations Cannot Be Interfered
With���Must  Have   a   Certificate.
The Streets, Work and Property
Committee recommend that the council
do not prohibit contractors and others
dumping muskeg and rock on the
streets. The belief is that all the material may be useful. The dumping
must, however, be regulated. The
report of the committee is given in full
below.
Re the question of allowing Mr.
Watson ancl others to dump earth, rock
and muskeg taken from lots where excavating is being carried on on the
streets of the city. We find that there
seems to be no other place which could
be used unless it be the water front,
and this can only be reached at present
from the G. T. P. wharf, there being
no road or street connecting with any
other part of it. We have been informed that the G. T. P. will not allow
the dumping of such material from their
wharf.
It being impossible, therefore, to find
any other place except the lanes and
streets, unless arrangements could be
made with owners of other property to
receive it, partieB desiring to build in
this city would be compelled to reserve
a portion of their lots for the dumping
of material.
In the matter of the excavating at
the corner of Third Avenue and Seventh
street, we find that there is about 300
yards of clay and muskeg, the larger
part being clay, which the parties
who are excavating must find a place
for.
It would be well for the council to
take up this matter as soon as possible,
and we desire to impress upon them,
that in our opinion the absolute forbidding of dumping any material on the
streets and lanes without making some
Provision for some other place to be
used, would at once stop all building in
^'s city, except something that will require no excavating.
Pending the decision of the council in
this matter, we have taken no steps,
wrapt to insist that should permission
��> given to dump on streets, it should
M provided that all fills will not be permitted to be built higher than three feet
below grade.

^atmanv   '  ��ftheopinion that a
ma"y grades in  the  city  would
have to be changed. In fact, the engineer who was responsible for the
grades told him that a great many
errors had been made, as they had not
taken into consideration the excavation
for basements.
It was finally decided to adopt the
report, and that a clause be inserted in
the proposed by-law covering the
point, and that the engineer use his
discretion.
Yankees   to   Celebrate
It is rumoured that the citizens of
Prince Rupert who came from the
United States will celebrate the Fourth
of July here.
Launches in Demand
Every launch, skiff and canoe that
could be secured was put into commission yesterday to accommodate the crowds
of pleasure seekers who were desirous
of taking advantage of the day and
spend it on the water. One party who
were up around the lakes report having
seen half a dozen seal on a rock basking
in the sun. Several shots were fired at
them but there was nothing doing.
HEAVY FINES  IMPOSED
Three Men   Fined   $510   and   Coats
Each for Selling Booze
Wilfred Gilbean, Fred SnJWer and
Alex. Antin, the three men who were
charged on Saturday with illegal selling
of liquor appeared before Magistrate
Carss this morning and were fined $510
and $2.00 costs each, or a total of $1536.
CELEBRATE JULY 1
COUNCIL APPOINTS COMMITTEE
TO PREPARE PLANS.
Public Meeting will be Called for
Organizing Purposes.���Intention
is to make it the Greatest Day
Prince    Rupert    has    ever    Seen
The first of July celebration has
awakened an interest in the council and
the aldermen indulged in a discussion of
the plans on Saturday night. As a result
Alcl. Lynch moved and Aid. Pattullo
seconded, that acting mayor Mobley
appoint a committee of one alderman
and a number of citizens to take the
matter in hand.
The committee appointed was Aid.
Mclntyre, Dr. Tremayne, L. Crippen,
W. R. Brown, Alf. Morris, J. D. Roerig,
G. W. Nickerson and R. Ross. These
gentlemen will call a public meeting for
this week and get the pelple organized.
A number of committees will be appointed to look after the different branches
of the work. The idea is to make this
the greatest celebration ever held here
and the citizens are all asked to prepare
to decorate their premises and to join
the committees in making the affair a big
Hurled   Nickles  at  Mob
Portland, Ore., June 20.���Ernest Beaton was seen stealing nickels from the
pay telephone boxes and immediately
a mob of over a hundred started to
chase him. To gain time he tossed handful after handful of nickels to his pursuers. Many stopped to pick them up
but enough kept up the hunt to capture
him eventually.
RUSH STREET WORK
ALDERMEN   HAVE   DECIDED   TO
DELAY NO LONGER.
Small Cuts and Fills in Section 1
Will be Done First and a Hundred
or More Men Will Be Employed���
Final Decision This Evening.
Although the council has not yet definitely decided upon the system of doing street work the generally accepted
belief is that the local improvement
system will be followed. This requires
a petition from the people who want
improvements made in front of their
property, or the council must decide upon a certain district and pass a by-law
and also give the property owners interested an opportunity to object. The
former plan is much the quicker and
the citizens are requested to hustle in
their petitions, particularly from section
1. The sooner the petitions are in the
sooner the work will be started.
The aldermen discussed the frontage
tax system and local improvement system
with the solicitor on Saturday night, and
there is every reason to believe that this
week will mark the beginning of permanent street work in Prince Rupert.
Aid. Smith and Aid. Pattullo urged that
the council start a gang of men on the
smaller cuts and fills in Sec. 1, such as
atnthe corner of Third avenue and
Seventh street, in front of Mclntyre
ball, in front of Scotts, and other places.
These small cuts the alderman claimed
could not effect in any way a plan the
new engineer might prepare.
Aid. Lynch agreed with the alderman
mentioned and urged that the street
machinery be set in motion the coming
week, even if only a hundred men could
be employed at the beginning.
The question of raising the necessary
funds for immediate use, to keep the
work going until the aldermen had
formulated a financial system, was introduced and Acting Mayor Mobley
suggested that every alderman take this
matter into their serious consideration
during Sunday and Monday and be prepared to decide what they would do by
Mondr.y night. That was the only way
he could see out of the difficulty. The
suggestion was accepted and the public
may expect to know the result on Tuesday.
WATER PIPE CONTRACT
Was Awarded to Dominion Pipe Co.
Dairyman Disagree
Toronto, June 13���Rev. John Pearson
rector of Holy Trinity church died this
morning of paralysis. He was 81 years
ofage and had been rector of the same
church for 35 years.
A short session of the council was held
Saturday night. Only a few minor
matters were present for consideration
and then the aldermen went into committee on by-laws.
Those present were Acting Mayor F. H.
Mobley, Aid. Pattullo, Smith, Lynch
Hilditch, Mclntyre.
The minutes of the last regular meeting were read and adopted.
B. C. Tie & Timber Co.
Mr. Webster, of the B. C. Tie & Timber Co. was present to address the
council in connection with that company's proposals and rights in the district. The speaker said he was not p.e-
pared to go into the matter fully at
once. He wished to get an idea of what
the council intended to do in the matter
of the city taking over the company's
rights.
Aid. Hilditch suggested that the matter
be referred to the Light and Water
committee to deal with and report to the
council.
Aid.   Pattullo   said   he thought the
company    should    submit   their    proposition to the council first.
The mayor assured Mr. Webster that
when he submitted a report the council
would consider it at once.
Mr. Webster said he would prepare
a report and send it on in due time.
Dairymen Quarrel
A communication was received from
R. Braund, dairyman, objecting to
John Nehring selling milk in Prince
Rupert at 15c and 25c per quart.
Nehring pastured his cows in the rear
of the Catholic church, while he, Braund,
stall fed all his cattle.���Referred to the
Heatth committee.
Unsanitary Lane
From Mrs. Mary E. Owen, calling
attention of the council to the condition
of lane in rear of 21, 22, and 23 on
on Second avenue which were used for
location of closets etc., to the detriment
of Third avenue people.���Referred to the
Health committee.
Water Pipe Tender
A report was received from the Fire and
water committee recommending that the
Dominion Wood Pipe Co be awarded
the contract, they being the lowest
tenderer. The total tender was $1,118.02.
Aid. Smith moved that the Fire and
Water committee be instructed to award
the contract for the water pipe at once
and get it laid ascsoon as possible and
that it be paid for out of the funds
already provided for the water works.
Aid. Lynch seconed the motion and it
carried.
The council went into committee on
by-laws 5 and 6.
BOTH WERE SLAIN
MORE BLACK HAND
VANCOUVER STIRRED UP BY ANOTHER   OUTRAGE
Italian Shot in Leg by Man Passing
Close to him, the Assailant Making
His Escape.���Injured Man will
Recover.
Vancouver, June 20.���This city has
again been startled by an outrage of
the Black Hand order and is in a state
of excitement over it. Last night an
Italian was shot in the leg by an unknown
assailant who came to him in a dark,
downtown alley and apparently pressed a revolver against the man's clothing in passing. The Italian dropped
when the bullet struck him and the
shooter made his escape.
At the hospital a twelve gauge cartridge was extracted from the Italian's
leg. It had carried into the wound
burnt cloth and underclothing. This
has been cleanly extracted and if no
blood poisoning ensues the man will
recover.
He denies any knowledge of his
assailant and sticks to his statement
that the man passed him without a
word and he did not see him pull a
revolver. He had no suspicion of what
was about to happen until bullet strufck
him. It is stated, however, that two
Englishmen heard two Italians quarrelling in their native tongue in the lane
where the shooting occurred, only a few
minutes previous to the shooting. They
say the Other man ran in the direction
of False creek.
HUSBAND AND WIFE VICTIMS OF
ASSASSINATION.
Body of Mrs. Charlton Fished up in
Lake Como Shows Fractured Skull
And many other Signs of Violence.
Man's Coat is Found
Como, Italy, June 18.���A startling
discovery that tends to confirm the
theory that Porter Charlton was also
killed by the assassin of his wife, came
when Lake Como was dragged today. Part of a man's coat was fished
up near the spot where the trunk containing Mrs. Charlton's body was found.
Fishermen who discovered it declared
they had seen Charlton wear the garment, which was badly torn.
The body of Mrs. Charlton, with the
skull fractured and bearing other signs
of violence, was found in a trunk in
Lake Como last week. It was taken
from the lake by fishermen. The Charlton's occupied a cottage near the lake
and were but recently married, having
come from New York where Mrs.
Charlton is said to have been involved
in marital difficulties with her first
husband.
Refuses Rhodes' Gift
Capetown, June 13.���It is stated that
General Louis Botha, premier and minister of agriculture in the cabinet of
South Africa, declines to avail himself
of the terms of the will of Cecil Rhodes
which set apart Rhodes' mansion at
Groot Schuur as a residence for the
premier of Sorith Africa. The refusal
of General Botha to comply with the
conditions of the will has created a
strong feeling against him.
IDITAROD   A   DEAD   ONE
Stampede   Fades  Away  as   Quickly
As    it   Started
Seattle, Wn., June 18.���The rush
to the Iditarod has died away as suddenly as it arose. Steamship travel to
Alaska is very little above the normal again. Continual reports from
Fairbanks such as a cablegram yesterday from W. B. Coom, that the new
diggings were a "rank failure" have
killed the wild enthusiasm that arose
over the tales that came out of the
interior of "thirty-five miles of paystreak."
While the reports are constant from
Alaska that the Iditiarod never has
been promising, the depreciation of the
new diggings is not unanimous, and
a fairly steady travel will continue all
summer.
VATICAN   PROTESTS
No Freedom of Worship to be Permitted    in    Spain.
Preparing Celebration
The people of the Bulkley valley
will celebrate the 1st of July on Lyman's
flats, across the river from Telkwa. A
good racetrack is being laid out, money
raised, and an extensive program of
sports arranged, concluding with' a
dance in the evening.
Madrid, June 18.���Monsignor Vice,
the papal muncio, has protested formally against the royal decree issued
Saturday authorizing edifices of non-
catholic religious societies to display
the insignia of public worship and other
ceremonies on the ground that the government should maintain the status
quo pending the result of negotiations
which are bi',':: conducted with, the
Vat ican.
Premier Ca' .'jas in reply says that
the decree doe lot touch matters covered by the nt   <tiations.

HINDUS SEARCHING WORLD FOR
SANSCRIT ROLL
Difficulty Interpreter was up Against
in Seattle.���Tahklakol Headmen
Speak in Many Dialects to Immigration Inspectors.
They have come to find the sacred
Gunth of Tahklakot," said the interpreter to the Seattle P. I. repoi cer.
"The sacred what?" cried three astonished immigration officers who had
been working twenty-four hours on
board the steamship Minnesota, endeavoring to discover why thirty-five
tall, swarthy, white-turbaned Hindus
had chosen to visit the United States
in a body.
The newcomers are different, both
in appearance and in language, from
any Hindus who have ever come through
this port. When the Minnesota arrived
on Friday it was found that no one in
Seattle could communicate with them.
A hurried call wag sent to Vancouver for E. S. Jelley, a famous scholar
of Indian tongues, who has studied most
of the 300 dialects used in different
parts of the Indian empire.
Jelley arrived at the Minnesota and
was given a cordial greeting by the
impatient immigration officers. The
thirty-five frightened Hundus were huddled in a corner of the smoking room,
passively awaiting them.
"Ask them what they came over
here for, Jelley," said one of the immigration officers. "The Minnesota
people haven't been able to tell us a
thing, except that they kept by themselves and cooked their own food during the whole trip."
More Vocal Pyrotechnic*
Jelley walked over to the Hindus
and set off a series of gutturals which
would have drawn an answer from the
Sphinx. The Hindus shrank together
and mournfully shook their heads.
Then Jelley started another tune.
This time the labials predominated
and the effect was that of running
water dripping over rocks. Still the
Hindus shook their heads.
"This is like trying to open communication with Mars," said Jelley, as
he mopped his head and sank on one
of the leather divans.
He returned to the struggle and set
off a series of vocal pyrotechnics which
in the rapid succession of closed vowels
sounded like an active peanut roaster.
The effect upon the Hindus was like
that of a galvanic battery. Their
drooping attitude disappeared. A volley of similar sound burst from thirty-
five throats. One Hindu in a long green
coat and a turban bigger than the rest,
quieted his countrymen and held a long
conference with Interpreter Jelley, inter
spersed with violent gesticulations.
Finally the immigration officers interrupted. 'Well, what are they here
after, day labor?"
Then it was that Jelley gravely replied: "They have come in search of
the sacred Gunth of the village of
Tahlakot, far up in the Himalayan
mountains."
Search for Lost Writings.
Jelley explained that the Gunth was
the sacred writing of the Sikhs, the
tribe's family bible, preserved since time
immemorial by the headmen of Tahklakot. This ancient roll of Sanskrit
mysteriously disappeared five years ago,
and since that time the demons have
sent pestilence upon the unprotected
community.
Now the young men, who belong to
the sacred order of Singhs, or Lions
of God, have pledged themselves to a
world-wide search for the Gunth. Similar parties set off last fall to the east,
to the north and to the south, with vows
to devote themselves to the search.
They will remain away five years.
The band is under the leadership of
Jamala Singh, a fine, tall specimen of
manhood.     Each  of the pilgrims had
from 75 to, 100 rupees with him, equivalent to from $25 to $30..
So slow was the interpretation only
half of the band were examined. The
remainder will be brought before a
special board of inquiry this afternoon.

FOR GOVERNOR GENERAL
Duke of Fife Replies to suggestion

London, June 18.���Replying to the
suggestion of a Scotch-Canadian that
he shuld succeed Earl Grey as governor-
general of Canada,the Duke of Fife said
that even if the position were offered
to him it would be impossible for him to
accept it, on account of the state of health
of his wife the Princess Louisw. He
added that he had often dreamed of a
future when one or more of the King's
five sons should represent their sovereign
in different parts of the empire.

Mrs. Farmer Gets Damages
Vancouver, June 18.���The question
of travelling on a pass clearing the company of all responsibility, so often*
successfully pleaded by common carriers,
has had a set back. Mrs. Farmer claimed damages for the loss of her husband,
killed in the Lakeview disaster last
November. The defence of the B. C,
Electric company was that deceased was
travelling on a pass and this relieved the
company of all responsibility. The Jury
was unable to find that the pass abrogated the claim, and awarded Mrs.Farmer
$9,000 damages.

A PLAY-CROUND WANTED
Prince Rupert needs a play-ground. This has been said often before, but it
has been with the expression of futurity���something to be done later. The
time has come now when the city needs it and needs it badly. No city ever
needed a play-ground more. There is not a spot in town where the small boy
can get down next to the soil or where the big boy can play games of prowess
and skill. These things are just as essential to the building up of a healthy,
progressive city as good roads, sewers and waterworks. The play-ground deserves just as much consideration and here where the child is deprived of the
luxury of a back yard and a lawn it is necessary for the public to provide the
recreation grounds. If your boy is going to spend his days and evenings on the
board walks what is going to become of him?
Last year G. W. Morrow with Frank McKinnon and some of the other boys
interested in manly sports went carefully over the townsite and decided that
the most practical place to make a play-ground is on Acropolis Hill. There is a
fairly level piece of ground which could be drained and made into a splendid
grounds. It will take a few thousand dollars to make a spot that would be
suitable to the climate here, but it is an expenditure which must be faced sooner
or later, and the sooner the better for Prince Rupert's youth.
Many of the young men who are interested in sports are roady and willing
to contribute towards the making of a play-ground and if the city council will
take up the question there will be an enthusiastic response.
WHIM OF A WOMAN
Sends    out    Expedition    to   Buy    a
Wonderful Pearl
To satisfy the fad of a New York
society woman for rare gems, Capt. J
George Frair will sail tomorrow with
his schooner Eagle in a daring attempt I
to buy or capture the Samfa, the biggest and most famous pearl of the
South Sea Islands.
This  beautiful jewel,  the size of  a
large walnut and of the rare pinkish
hue so prized by connoisseurs of gems,
i s now in the keeping of Chief O'Reilly,
ruler of Tongo- Tongo island.   O'Reilly I
is an Irishman who came to the island j
twenty years ago as mate of a trading
vessel, fell in love with a Malayasian
beauty, and decided to cast his lot with :
the natives.     Quickly he rose in power
and   influence,   managed   to   dethrone
the  native  chief and  now  rules  over
some  10,000  natives  on  Tongo-Tongo!
and the adjacent islands.
Three years ago a well-known New j
York society woman, whose name Capt.
Frair is not at liberty to divulge, vis-
ited Tongo Tongo on a tour around
the world in her husband's yacht.
O'Reilly did the honors of his island
kingdom. He showed his fair visitor
all the treasures and curios that he
had collected in his twenty years of
kingship.
Finally he took her to the temple,
and brought before her astonished
eyes the Samfa. She began to bargain
for it at once. O'Reilly explained that
he could not part with the jewel because it was the object of the fetish
worship of his dusky subjects; they
believed supernatural powers emanated
from the gem, and that the prosperity
of the tribe was linked with its pos-.
session. The more difficulties O'Reilly
named, the more eager was the woman
to obtain it. She played upon O'Reilly's
pride of being able to do anything he
chose with the natives, and finally
named a figure which would have enabled O'Reilly to return to United
States and live on the income, but
O'Reilly did not dare to give her the
gem then and there.
A meeting was arranged on the little island of Una, to the southward.
The yacht proceeded to Hongkong,
where the gold to be paid O'Reilly vm
obtained. O'Reilly awaited its coming
at Una.. Everything was ready for the
tranfer when the youngest of O'Reilly's
wives, who had become suspicious of
his dealings with the white woman,
arrived in a canoe. The arrival of the
native wife unnerved the chief, and he
refused to have any dealings with the
Americans, and, when they attempted
to land in a launch, threatened to attack them.
Since that date many South Sea
traders have been commissioned to
obtain the Sanfa from O'Reilly at any
price, but none of them have been
able to even open negotiations. Finally
in the course of her unremitting efforts, the New Yorker heard that Capt.
Frair was an old friend of O'Reilly's
having served with him on the ship
Grotian a quarter of a century ago.
KING   GEORGE
He called his counselors and said,
one day in London town: "It is decreed
that, my poor head must wear the kingly
crown. And when that crown is on my
brow, the sceptre in my hand, I'll reign
the best that I know how, and guard my
native land. But, to avoid a muss that
would deface the nation's name, there's
one thing must be understood this
early in the game. At reigning I will
labor hard, as busy as a bee, but you
must keep that Austin bard from shooting songs at me. A monarch cannot put
up hay, or make a useful sound, if Alfred
Austin springs a lay, whenever he turns
round. And so, my lords and gentlemen,
you should be looking sharp; go, confiscate that poet's pen, and smash his
blamed old harp. A monarch bears a
heavy load, e'en when there is no bard,
if Alfred Austin writes an ode, that rubs
it in too hard."���Walt Mason.
Cheap Message Came Dear.
The recent night message rates adopted by the telegraph lines where
fifty words may be sent for fifty cents,
worked a hardship on Charles Burkhart
a few evenings ago. A company in Seattle wired him fifty words at night
rates and when it got to Ketchikan
there was a toll of about fourteen
dollars against it. The government is
not making special rat3s over its cable.

F. R. Mitchell, of Vancouver, one
of the syndicate owning the new town-
site of Ellison, about three miles down
the Skeena from Hazelton, arrived on
the steamer Hazelton Thursday afternoon in connection with business relating to the new townsite.
To the Herald Mr. Mitchell stated
that the surveyors are now at work
amd expect to have finished platting in
six weeks, and shortly after. that lots
will be placed on the market.
The name Ellison was given in honor
of the chief commissioner of lands, Price
Ellison.
A deal has been completed whereby
the G. T. P. have taken a half interest
in the townsite and in return agree to
make the station for this vicinity on the
townsite.
From the amount of interest already
shown and the applications already received for lots in the new town, Mr.
Mitchell considers there is no question
but that Ellison will be the largest town
on the G. T. P. between Prince Rupert
and Edmonton.���Omineca Herald.

Arrivals and Departures.
The Bruno returned yesterday from a
very successful trip to the Islands. Mr.
Beaumont, assistant manager of the
Grand Trunk steamship lines, made the
first trip with the new boat and is enthusiastic as to the growing business in
sight.
The following left for Vancouver on
the Camosun yesterday morning: H. K.
Wright, C. A. Crosby, A. G. Foster,
W. J. Carroll, C. Heaton. T. N. Lee,
A. Johnson, Gus. Nieberg, Chas. Foster,
C. Valin, P. Naly, M. Broman, G. 0.
Graham, H. McMillan, Geo. Holman.
The new steamer Inlander had her
boilers cleaned yesterday, and was
ready to go out this morning' on her
trip through the canyon to Hazelton,
but had to await the arrival of the
Princess May. Among those who reserved berths early are: Jas. F. Smith,
Dan Ferguson, Capt. McPhatter, Dr.
Stockton, F. R. Giersten, H. C. Crawford, Harry Tanner, ��� Edgecomb, W.
L. Gow, C. Galloway. ��� Callahan, ���
Crane.
Sunday is generally a busy day on
the waterfront, and yesterday was no
exception, though it did not nearly
come up to last week in its number of
landings and sailings. At 2 o'clock in
the morning the Camosun arrived from
Vancouver, and three hours later left
for Stewart. Half an hour after the
Cetriana came in from Stewart, and
sailed for Vancouver at half-past 7.
Then there was a lull until the afternoon, broken by the arrival from Vancouver of the Princess Beatrice on her
way north. At 5 o'clock the Princess
Royal got in from Stewart, and an hour
later steamed for Vancouver. The Capilano touched here at the same time and
also steamed south.

GEO. TITE MAY BE REFEREE
Some of   the   Big   Lacrosse  Games
in the South this Season.
The World last week had the following item in its sporting columns:
"Geo. Tite may be given a chance to
referee some matches in the future.
Tite is a well-known Victoria enthusiast
and refereed the memorable draw
game at the Point in 1903 between the
Vancouver and New Westminster
teams. Sleven thousand people saw
this match."
Mr. Tite has been conducting a large
furniture store here for nearly a year,
yet he is keenly interested in lacrosse.
It is natural to him. Away back in
Ontario as a boy and a young man he
was one of the stars and fought many
a hard battle in the big leagues. What
