HUNDREDS BURNED IN ONTARIO
iRelief Trains  Unable To
Penetrate Inferno.
ISktadni   Scan..    Along    Railway
Tracks-Half Conaumed Bodies of
Victim. Who Had Crawled Through
| Burning  Bu.h   and   Succumbed.
(Special to the Optimist)
ft William, Oct. 10���The most
l^raus bush fires in the history of
lOiurio are now burning to the west-
I md of here and in the vicinity of the
I Uke in the Woods. Two hundred lives
I ire said to have been lost, and the dam-
lip done will amount to several millions.
Beaudette, Minesta and Spooner in
I Ontario have been devastated. To
I the relief of the latter place the Canadian
I Northern sent an engine and fifty box
I cms to bring away the inhabitants, but
I on reaching Rainy River they found
I that town in flames and were unable to
| proceed further.
Southbound trains that came through
I distriet on fire report  a  number  of
corpses strewn along tho right of way,
many of them half consumed.    These
poor victims had crawled out of the
' burning woods close up to the tracks
| and had there succumbed.   One of the
j most pathetic sights was that of a baby
I lashed to its mother's  breast.    Both
wen dead.
It is feared that hundreds of settlers
have perished,  as word  was received
that the inhabitants wer eall packing
op io order to come here and since that
time no word has been received.    It
is known that the country is now a
tiling inferno for miles and mites, and
impossible to penetrate with relief.
Seven Town* Wiped Out
. Winnipeg, Oct. 10.���At noon today it
was ascertained that the seven towns
of Beaudette, Spooner, Gracetown, Pitt,
Cedar Spur, Swift and Roosevelt had
been totally wiped out by forest fires.
Various estimates are placed on the
total death roll, varying from two
hundred, the first estimate, to five
hundred.
Fifty houses and two mills were burned
to the ground at Rainy River yesterday,
and it is reported that the flames have
not yet died down though the high wind
has slackened some.
Seventy Dead at Rainy River
Winnipeg, Oct. 10.���This afternoon
a search party returned from Rainy
River bringing the bodies of a whole
family named Botel, the father, mother
and seven children. They were overtaken by the fires while fleeing from
home to what they believed to be a
place of safety.
The conditions at Rainy River are
said to be fearful. Looters were busy
up to a late hour last night, when the
railway men organized themselves into
a vigilance committee, and one of the
gang of looters caught in the act was
lynched. Fifty men are guarding the
streets.
Special trains are bearing crowds from
the city. It is known that at least
seventy have lost their lives.
Special trains with fire fighters and
apparatus are being sent from here
today.

FIFTY MINERS ENTOMBED
Harrowing Scenes Oround the Mouth
of the Shaft
(Special to the Opt mist)
Trinidad, Oct. 10.���Following the
explosion on Saturday night it is now
known there are fifty men entombed in
the workings. The scenes around the
mouth of the shaft all night last night
were harrowing to a degree. All sorts
of expedients to succor the entombed
men were suggested and many tried,
but without avail. The only hope now
is that they may have found the entrance to the old workings and are
securing air by that means.
W. W.  LEACH
Government Geologist Gives Unqualified Endorsement to Mineral Resources of the Interior.
FLEEING FROM AMALPA
Another Revolution Breaks Out in
Central American Republic
(Special to the OptimiBt)
Guatemala City, Oct. 10.���Foreigners
are fleeing from Amalpa, where there has
been an uprising and both British and
Americans have been thrown into prison
and condemned to death. The British
consul fled and his oflice was sacked. He
has cabled for a cruiser. The commandant has declared he will burn the
town if the cruiser arrives.
In a late copy of the Vancouver
Province Mr. W. W. Leach, of the
Dominion Geological survey, gives a
lentghy and instructive interview concerning the mineral resources of Northern
British Columbia and the remarkable
development to date. These statements coming from a man of such wide
experience in mineral development and
production, are of more than passing
interest to those concerned in the
mineral wealth of the interior because
Mr. Leach desires to go on record as
unqualifiedly endorsing the permanency
of the rich mineral discoveries in the
vicinity of Hazelton. He regards it as
a foregone conclusion that at least one
silver-lead property "has made good"
and that many other properties look
very promising.
For five successive seasons Mr. Leach
has been engaged in gathering data
for a topographical and geological map
of a region embracing 8600 square miles.
" Important mineral discoveries have
been more numerous this summer than
during any previous period in the
history of the North," said Mr. Leach
to the Vancouver Province. "Many
mines are now deveoping that give
promise of surpassing in rich mineral
production anything that has ever been
discovered in British Columbia. Nine
Mile mountain near Hazelton is unquestionably a permanent silver-lead
camp with ore bodies averaging $100 per
ton. On the Silver Cup which can no
longer be classified as a prospect, but
as a highly developed property of
execllent merit and great possibilities.
The Silver Cup vein is without doubt
a true fissure in the sedimentaries.
The ore body has been proven by a
series of three tunnels to be strong
and persistent fqr approximately two
thousand feet, giving backs of 1300
feet, developments quite within themselves sufficient to merit the attention
of the mining world. The Babine
range, between Bulkley valley and
Babine Lake a distance of 100 miles, is
very extensively mineralized and will
give a splendid account of itself with
the advent of early transportation."
BANISHMENT OF KING MANUEL
Rumor That Deposed Monarch Attempted Suicide.
Order Issued Forbidding Wearing of
Clerical Raiment in Portugal and
Giving Religious Orders Certain
Time to Quit Country.
(Special to the Optimist)
Lisbon, Oct. 10.���A formal order of
banishment against King Manuel was
issued by proclamation this morning.
It is learned that the Duke of Oporto
was captured in battle and upon his
promise not to return to Portugal was
conducted as a prisoner to the royal
yacht Amelie, on which the king and the
queen mother had already been placed.
News comes from Gibraltar that
Manuel attempted suicide yesterday,
but this cannot be confirmed.
Details of the capture of the Quelpos
monastery show that the monks put
up an heroic resistance and in the battle
many were killed.
An order has been issued forbidding
the wearing of clerical apparal in the
country and giving the religious orders
a certain time in which to leave Portugal.
SITUATION  IN  SPAIN
Civil War Imminent and King Alfon-
\
so Very Dangerously III
(Special to the Optimist)
Madrid, Oct. 10.���With the call of
the first reserves to colors ihis morning
the government admitted that the
situation in Spain is serious and that an
uprising is imminent. Thousands of
stands of arms are known to have been
smuggled into Barcelona within the last
few days and it is believed the rebels
there arc ready to put an army in the
field at any moment. The republicans
feel confident that the army will desert
when the revolt begins and are urging
an immediate rising. Meanwhile King
Alfonso is so ill that small hopes are
held out of his recovery.
NEW QUARTERS COMPLETED
Over H. S. Wallace's Store, Designed
aa Gentlemen's Mess
The premises over the H. S. Wallace
Co. Ltd.'s, dry goods store have just
been transformed into quarters adapted
for a Gentlemen's Mess. The workmen
completed their part of the transformation today.
The quarters consist of suites of
bed room and sitting room for each
member, also a general sitting room, a
dining room, and kitchen accommodation. The premises are to be furnished
throughout in the best possible and
most up-to-date manner, and equipped
throughout with every modern appliance
and convenience.
HINTON AT VANCOUVER
General Passenger Agent Still Com.
plains of Labor Scarcity
Mr. W. P. Hinton, general passenger
agent of the G. T. P., is in Vancouver
looking after the company's interests
there. Mr. Hinton when questioned
as to the progress of the company's
work in the north renewed the complaint
regarding a shortage of men. In his
opinion the third hundred mile section
contract will not be let owing to this
difficulty, and that the result will be the
construction of the remainder of the
road from the east.
Labor Still Coming In
Mr. Hinton, general passenger agent
of the Grand Trunk Pacific, stated at
Vancouver only a few days ago that
there was still a great scarcity or* labor
at this end of the line. He will be
pleased to learn the contractors at this
end of the Une are quite pleased with
the situation, as men are coming in to
work on construction by every boat.
The Prince George brought over fifty
on Sunday.
NEW FISH BOAT FITTED
With   Best   Class   of   Engines   for
Indian Owners
H. D. Robinson, of the Rupert Marine Ironworks and Supply C, Ltd., has
just this morning completed the installation of a 12 H. P. engine of the latest
and most perfect type of gasoline motor
upon a large new boat built atSkidegate
for Messrs. Wilson Bros.
The boat which has been specially
designed for fish carrying, is a beamy
craft strongly built of cedar and oak,
and excellently well adapted for her
purpose. She will carry 15 or 16 tons
of fish, and will be registered in Prince
Rupert.
The engine fitted to her by Mr.
Robinson's firm is the finest yet purchased by Indian boat owners, and is a
great advance upon the cheaper class of
gasoline motor usually selected by the
Indian fishermen. "Engines of thia
class," says Mr. Robinson, "are very
much more economical in the long run
than the cheaper motors, and I have no
doubt that the superiority of the Wilson
Brothers boat in reliability, speed and
carrying power, will lead to the more
frequent purchase by fishing boat owners
of this class of gasoline motor which
will be very much to their purchaser's
advantage."
The Wilson Bros.' new boat leaves
today for Claxton to have her deck
house built there, and returns to Prince
Rupert for registry. The brothers have
not yet namet. their craft.
AVIATOR EDY LOST
Was in the Prise Flight From Chicago to New York
Britannia  rules  the  waves,   France
controls the air, and Pierpont Morgan j
and John D. Rockfeller do the rest.
(Special to the Optimist)
Chicago, Oct. 10.���Aviator Edy, one
of the competitors in the prize flight
from Chicago to New York, was this
morning reported to have been seriously injured. Messengers have been
sent out to find where the aviator fell.
GREECE BELLIGERENT
Has   Recalled   Her   Minister   From
Constantinople,  War Threatens
(Special to the Optimist)
Athens, Oct. 10.���The government of
Greece this morning recalled her minister
to Turkey and it is feared that the present
crisis must end in a clash. The powers
are trying to arrange a peaceful settlement with not the best hopes of success
as there have been so many differences
between the two countries recently, to
say nothing of old scores, that now war
seems to be inevitable.

New York, Oct. 10.���(Special)���"Nap"
Lajoie, by getting eight hits in eight
times up yesterday, wins the red auto
given to the man heading the batting

"GOOD THING
FOR THE BOYS"
SAYS   COLONEL   DAVIS  OF   BOY
SCOUT MOVEMENT
He Wants Critica of the Movement to
Understand It Better Before Condemning It. Gen. Sir R. Baden
Powell's Aims.
As a military man himself, Colonel
Davis, whose work as -city engineer of
Prince Rupert needs no advertisement,
is not in sympathy with the kind of
criticism which he hears regarding the
swash buckler spirit said to be developed
in boys by the boy scout movement.
Now that the movement has taken
root in Prince Rupert and beside it, as
usual, has appeard the attitude of adverse
criticism on the part of a few persons in
the community, Colonel Davis thinks
that the spirit of the Boy Scout organization should be made more fully
known, so that this adverse idea regarding the boy scouts may be done away
with.
"So far from the Boy Scout movement in any way encouraging any
undesirable attribute of character in
our young boys," says Colonel Davis,
"its effect on the disposition and character of the boys is very much the
contrary. The boy who becomes a boy
scout will be a better behaved boy and
will become a finer man, as a rule, than
the boy who grows up undisciplined."
Colonel Davis draws attention to the
words of General Sir Robert Baden
Powell, the founder of the Boy Scout
movement, in his speech this fall at
Toronto. Baden Powell said then that
the continued well being of a nation
could only be assured by training the
rising generation in those qualities of
resourcefulness, loyalty, honor, honesty,
energy and devotion to duty which
are urgently needed whenever great
crises are to be met.
As hundreds of the best men throughout the world are taking up the work
of inculcating these principles in boy
minds everywhere through the Boy
Scout movement of which these are the
essential principles, there is little ground
for criticism. Merely to qoute a single
sentence from the code of Boy Scout
honor as expressed by General Baden
Powell should be sufficient to lay low
a stonewall of adverse opinion. For, the
organization which states that each
boy is expected, and put on his honor
to carry out at least one good deed
every day to some animal or person," is
not an organization, surely, to condemn.
No movement which includes the
discipline of boys, and their encouragement in every way to greater efficiency,
greater personal neatness, and greater
self respect can be accused of guiding
the nation's boyhood in wrong lines. The
Boy Scout movement is designed to
develop these ahd other excellent qualities in boys everywhere. It will develop
them in the boys of Prince Rupert.
Prince Rupert's boys are a brisk and
bright generation and just the stuff
to benefit by discipline along the lines
of General Baden Powell's excellent
organization. Prince- Rupert's Boy
Scouts today will be Prince Rupert's
valued citizens later on, and their
present critics will be loud in praise of
the results of the Boy Scout movement
by them.

DO NOT STOP FOR MISTAKES
The collossal failure of the city council to make good in the first and most important year of our municipal existence is not the fault of the individual so much
as the fault of the system. We started off in the wrong way���attempting at adapt
a worn out and discredited system of government to a city planned on modern
lines. The result is failure, a chaos. Instead of having experienced municipal
business men organizing the city service and starting off the municipal improvements on practical lines we have several men devoting a part of their time to city
work and gaining experience by failures at a big cost to the tax payer.
Undoubtedly the greatest error yet made by the council was the adoption of
the Lynch theories of local improvements. Those theories are unique in their
hash of practical ideas, and contrary to all the tested, and accepted schemes of
municipal taxation. Had the council some months ago prepared a bylaw to borrow
a half million dollars or more for public improvements and submitted it to the
people the debentures would now be ready to put upon the market and the grading
of main thoroughfares would be a tax upon the whole property of the city���corporations and private owners alike. But the council were inveigled
into the Lynch theory under the promise that the money could be more quickly
secured and without having to be submitted to the people. This latter feature seems to
have commended itself, for the Mayor and aldermen do not like publicity and have
no desire to hear the voice of the people.
Badly planned and badly executed the whole echeme of municipal improvements and financing has now to be done over again. The people will now at least
get a vote on the question of the loan.
Yet even in the face of the errors of the past it would be the greatest mistake
yet made to stop any of the grading work now under contract. The work has to
be done and it probably can never be done cheaper, nor can the mistake of the
system of taxation be now corrected. The work must go through. Merchants,
artizans and real estate men have been waitin months for the work to start. The
circulation of the money at the present time is Accessary to the welfare of the
city. If work stopped now the results would be disastrous, both within and without the city. Inside the pay roll is needed and the outside world should never
have it drawn to their attention that through the bungling of the city council
large contracts were let and cancelled because the city council could not raise the
money. If the usual sources fail the Optimist still believes the Provinvial Government would back the city's bonds.

Captain F. F. Henderson |arrived |at
Prince Rupert this week on his launch
"Imperieuse" of Victoria. The Captain
has been engaged this summer for three
months on an extended series of runs
with survey parties and their supplies
for Messrs. Gordon McGregor of Victoria.
His latest trip was 'from Gribell Island
to Prince Rupert via Low Inlet where he
ran for shelter during the recent heavy
weather.
Captain Henderson leaves today for
Rivers Bight and Dundivan Inlet, and
will proceed from there to Alert Bay
and Knight's Inlet. The survey parties
he has been transporting have been
engaged principally in surveying timber
limits in the district. The course of
the series of trips taken from Victoria
included Alice Arm, Nanaimo, Salmon
River, and Prince Rupert (for provisions). Then back to Alice Arm and
across to Virago Sound, from there
again to Prince Rupert, Alice Arm,
Virago Sound and Masset. Then over
to Skidegate from which a trip wasmade
to Lyell Island, and afterwards to
Prince Rupert. The latest run just
completed was to Gribell and other
islands and back to this port. Parties
of from seven to fourteen persons were
carried by the launch on the various
trips.
The Imperieuse which was built by
Captain Henderson, an old country
ship builder, is a particularly strong
and handsome boat, admirably suited
to the class of work she has just been
doing. Built of cedar and oak, copper-
fastened throughout, and lined inside
with close grooved and tongued planking, she is strong and comfortable.
Her house accommodation, while rising
little above the deck level, is very
roomy within, and sleeping bunks can
be arranged at need right forward to
the bow. The gasoline storage is all
aft, and the cook stove well forward
eliminating fire-risk considerably. The
engine develops 20 H. P., and the boats
lines are designed with no hollow curves
yet not bluff cheeked to slam in a seaway. The Imperieuse rides a sea light,
throwing no heavy water, and maintains
her speed well enough against rough
weather.
Quite a host of clever contrivances
are visible about her build and equipment, all tending to her convenience
and safety as a sea boat and in harbor.
She has the British naval square transom with quarter badges, and very
strong stern and rudder posts. She
is double transomed, and has a further
false transom fitted for protection on
the aftermost transom. Substantial
one piece stringers run the length of
the boat from sternpost to transom,
one on the deck line, one a foot or so,
below. The deck is as strongly constructed as the hull, and Captain
Henderson carried as much as three
tons of deck load safely.
The Imperieuse is fitted for carrying
canvas enough to give her almost as
good speed in a breeze as she can do
under power; and Captain Henderson
is naturally proud of her as he has
spent much time, trouble and money in
making her to suit his ideas and purposes a safe boat for weather, a fast one,
and a comfortable one.

DO NOT STOP FOR MISTAKES
The collossal failure of the city council to make good in the first and most important year of our municipal existence is not the fault of the individual so much
as the fault of the system. We started off in the wron^ way���attempting at adapt
a worn out and discredited system of government to a city planned on modern
lines. The result is failure, a chaos. Instead of having experienced municipal
business men organizing the city service and starting off the municipal improvements on practical lines we have several men devoting a part of their time to city
work and gaining experience by failures at a big cost to the tax payer.
Undoubtedly the greatest error yet made by the council was the adoption of
the Lynch theories of local improvements. Those theories are unique in their
hash of practical ideas, and contrary to all the testedi and accepted schemes of
municipal taxation. Had the council some months ago prepared a bylaw to borrow
a half million dollars or more for public improvements and submitted it to the
people the debentures would now be ready to put upon the market and the grading
of main thoroughfares would be a tax upon the whole property of the city���corporations and private owners alike. But the council were inveigled
into the Lynch theory under the promise that the money could be more quickly
secured and without having to be submitted to the people. This latter feature seems to
have commended itself, for the Mayor and aldermen do not like publicity and have
no desire to hear the voice of the people.
Badly planned and badly executed the whole echeme of municipal improvements and financing has now to be done over again. The people will now at least
get a vote on the question of the loan.
Yet even in the face of the errors of the past it would be the greatest mistake
yet made to stop any of the grading work now under contract. The work has to
be done and it probably can never be done cheaper, nor can the mistake of the
system of taxation be now corrected. The work must go through. Merchants,
artizans and real estate men have been waitin months for the work to start. The
circulation of the money at the present time is necessary to the welfare of the
city. If work stopped now the results would be disastrous, both within and without the city. Inside the pay roll is needed and the outside world should never
have it drawn to their attention that through the bungling of the city council
large contracts were let and cancelled because the city council could not raise the
money. If the usual sources fail the Optimist still believes the Provinvial Government would back the city's bonds.

Captain F. F. Henderson |arrived |at
Prince Rupert this week on his launch
"Imperieuse" of Victoria. The Captain
has been engaged this summer for three
months on an extended series of runs
with survey parties and their supplies
for Messrs. Gordon McGregor of Victoria.
His latest trip was from Gribell Island
to Prince Rupert via Low Inlet where he
ran for shelter during the recent heavy
weather.
Captain Henderson leaves today for
Rivers Bight and Dundivan Inlet, and
will proceed from there to Alert Bay
and Knight's Inlet. The survey parties
he has been transporting have been
engaged principally in surveying timber
limits in the district. The course of
the series of trips taken from Victoria
included Alice Arm, Nanaimo, Salmon
River, and Prince Rupert (for provisions). Then back to Alice Arm and
across to Virago Sound, from there
again to Prince Rupert, Alice Arm,
Virago Sound and Masset. Then over
to Skidegate from which a trip wasmade
to Lyell Island, and afterwards to
Prince Rupert. The latest run just
completed was to Gribell and other
islands and back to this port. Parties
of from seven to fourteen persons were
carried by the launch on the various
trips.
The Imperieuse which was built by
Captain Henderson, an old country
ship builder, is a particularly strong
and handsome boat, admirably suited
to the class of work she has just been
doing. Built of cedar and oak, copper-
fastened throughout, and lined inside
with close grooved and tongued planking, she is strong and comfortable.
Her house accommodation, while rising
little above the deck level, is very
roomy within, and sleeping bunks can
be arranged at need right forward to
the bow. The gasoline storage is all
aft, and the cook stove well forward
eliminating fire-risk considerably. The
engine develops 20 H. P., and the boats
lines are designed with no hollow curves
yet not bluff cheeked to slam in a seaway. The Imperieuse rides a sea light,
throwing no heavy water, and maintains
her speed well enough against rough
weather.
Quite a host of clever contrivances
are visible about her build and equipment, all tending to her convenience
and safety as a sea boat and in harbor.
She has the British naval square transom with quarter badges, and very
strong stern and rudder posts. She
is double transomed, and has a further
false transom fitted for protection on
the aftermost transom. Substantial
one piece stringers run the length of
the boat, from sternpost to transom,
one on the deck line, one a foot or so,
below. The deck is as strongly constructed as the hull, and Captain
Henderson carried as much as three
tons of deck load safely.
The Imperieuse is fitted for carrying
canvas enough to give her almost as
good speed in a breeze as she can do
under power; and Captain Henderson
is naturally proud of her as he has
spent much time, trouble and money in
making her to suit his ideas and purposes a safe boat for weather, a fast one,
and a comfortable one.

The Provincial Government Architect,
Mr. R. F. Lawrence is a man of cosmopolitan tastes and tendencies. His
has been a wide professional experience
ranging over Canada, New Zealand,
Tasmania, South Africa and the British
Isles.
Yet with all his experience of cities
successful and less fortunate, over the
world, he is still positively astonished
at the rapid rise of Prince Rupert from
a mere landing place in the bush to a
city fully equipped with the comforts
of civilization.
"I am more than pleasantly surprised
not only at the aspect and surroundings
of the city, but more especially at the
city's growth, and the up-to-date system
in the methods of construction, grading,
and drainage system," said Mr. Lawrence. "I have never before seen so advanced a stage of civilized comfort
so quickly achieved," he added. "Two
years ago I may have been just a little
sceptical regarding Prince Rupert and
Stewart. Now my scepticism has vanished. I am astonished at the swift
progress of both cities. I am no pessimist mind you," went on Mr. Lawrence, "but now I am more optimistic
than ever for the future of Prince Rupert."
"In spite of the present financial
crisis?"
"Yes, in spite of that little difficulty.
Every city has to face some difficulty
of this sort, and I think it is a good
thing that Prince Rupert has got the
chance of facing and getting over it
early. As a municipal engineer of many
years' standing, I think Prince Rupert
iB certainly on the right track here."
Mr. Lawrence is pleased with the
planning of the city. "I am delighted
to see," he said, "that whoever is responsible for it has not followed the monotonous rectangular system, but has made
use of the natural contour of the town-
site to advantage. You have no very
terrible grades here to speak of. Many
a city has heavier ones. Of course you
are not like Stewart absolutely flat on
the townsite, but that only gives Prince
Rupert a better drainage system.
"Rome was not built in a day, you
know," said Mr. Lawrence, "and Rome
was built on seven hills."
The Provincial Architect admits himself a great believe/ in permanent buildings. Stone, concrete, or brick buildings,
he thinks are sure to play a prominent
part in the architecture of Prince Rupert
as the city progresses. Steel frame
structures, too, are sure to come once
the railway gets through and the city's
prosperity increases by leaps and bounds.
"Provided the money for them is
forthcoming," says Mr. Lawrence, "I am
always in favor of erecting buildings
adequately permanent to meet the needs
of a reasonable period ahead. Concrete
structure is as yet- you know, in its
infancy, and much may yet come of
this method of building though a definite
opinion regarding it cannot be given
till we know more of it, especially in this
climate.
"Probably among the permanent structures which we may expect in Prince
Rupert before long will be Government
buildings, court houses, and jail, though
nothing definite can be said yet regarding them.
"I take a great interest in every place
I visit," concluded Mr. Lawrence. "A-
part from being government architect
for British Columbia I take a great
interest as a private citizen in the
development of the country generally.
"I have traveled in various lands but
I always make myself as it were a
citizen of each country I may go to, and
take a deep interest in its life, progress,
and development. I have visited Stewart while on this trip, and am vastly

EXPERT ADVICE
TO SCHOOL BOARD
LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
REGARDING HEATING AND VENTILATING OF NEW SCHOOL
R. F. Lawrence, Provincial Government Architect, Present at School
Board Meeting this Afternoon
with Estimates and Specifications.
The School Board of Prince Rupert
meets this afternoon to hear the advice
of R. F. Lawrence, Provincial Government Architect for British Columbia,
regarding the new school building, and
with particular reference to the heating
system.
Mr. Lawrence will.have plans and
specifications with him of a combined
heating and ventilating system which he
recommends as the best for the building.
The system which is known as the
plenum system is the most up-to-date
and efficient. It will thoroughly heat
and ventilate every corner of the school
giving abundance of sweet fresh air, and
a reasonably moist heat obtained by
means of a system of ventilators and
radiators.
Regarding the school building itself
and its suitability for the accommodation of the children, Mr. Lawrence is
favorably inpressed. With some minor
alterations which he is going to recommend he thinks the school well built and
well designed for its purpose.
Among the alterations proposed by
Mr. Lawrence will be the provision of
improved fire escape arrangements at
the back of the building by which it
will be possible should need arise, to
bring every single child in the school
out of the class rooms and into safety
in a few moments. There will be no
long precipitous stairways on the escape
system. The stairways will be broken
up at regular intervals by spacious
landings between the flights of steps
so that there can be no stampeding down
long steep ladder like stairways which
might result in injury to the little ones.
This arrangement of fire escape stairways in combination with a well organized system of fire drill for the pupils
will make Prince Rupert's public school
one of the safest possible.
It is expected that the new heating
and ventilating system will be installed
very shortly after this meeting of the
School Board, probably before the end
of the month.
Switching would be a mild punishment for the Pensylvania man who
stole a railway lomocotive.

INLANDER ALL RIGHT
Captain Ducey Say* the Boat  Will
Run Until Twelfth of November
The Inlander left Port Essington on
Saturday afternoon with eighty tons of
freight and as many passengers as she
could accommodate. Early this morning
she had arrived at Kitselas and was
having no trouble, the stage of the
water then being one foot and seven
inches below zero and she being the
lightest draught steamer on the river,
for her size.
Captain Ducey said before leaving
Saturday that he was pretty confident
of clearing out the most of the freight
in the three warehouses in Essington
and more besides, and made this declaration: "I will leave Hazelton this
year as late as the twelfth of November
for my last trip."

A general meeting for practice will
