[OPED LENEVE WILL CONFESS
eing Tenderly Cared For by
Quebec Officials
Not in Confinement But a Gueat at
Home of Chief of Police.���Crippen
In Prison and Not Allowed to See
Anyone.
(Special to the Optimist)
Quebec, August 2.���Mile Leneve
I underwent an examination this morning
but the authorities are treating her more
Jthan kind in the hope that she will
���eventually tell all that she knows. She
Iwas asked very few questions and seemed
���averse to giving any testimony. The
���cabled advice from her mother, however,
���that she should tell all she knows, has
affected her deeply. From this the police
draw the conclusion that she will make
a full confession if given her own time
without any effort made to force her.
She is not in solitary confinement
like Dr. Crippen, but is treated more as
a guest at the home of Chief of Police
McCarthy. When first arrested she was
laboring under intense excitement from
which the medical advisers of the police
say it will take some days yet for her to
recover.
The belief is general that she will be
the principal witness at the inquest
in London.
Dr. Crippen is in jail like an ordinary
suspect and is rigidly treated as a prisoner
awaiting trial. He is not permitted to
see anyone and probably will not be
examined until he appears in court to
answer in the extradition proceedings.
FIREMAN RUNS AMUCK
Kills Two  of  Hit  Companion*  and
Then Commits Suicide
(Special to the Optimist)
San Diego, Cal., August 2.���After
running amuck and killing two of his
fellow firemen, a man named B. S.
Durham made his way to the plaza and
there committed suicide. Durham was
on a drunk and turned in a false alarm
of fire, When the firemen arrived he
opened fire upon them with his revolver
two being killed and nearly every shot
taking effect.

MILD SCRAP ABOUT PRINTING
Question of Publishing The
Building By-law
Wages for Laying Plank Ia Decided.���
An Unsightly Puddle Condemned���
Letter From the General Electric
Company Read.
The city council dealt with a number
of minor matters last night, a couple of
petitions for alteration of the grades,
a mud puddle near Hart's furniture
store, the wages to be paid to plank
layers, and other matters, the only one
of which that elicited much discussion
being the question of printing the building bylaws and as to whether it should
be printed in pamphlet form or in a
newspaper.
The latter question was brought up
by Aid. Barrow, who thought the
building bylaws ought to be printed and
kept where people could get at them.
Mr. Hilditch thought this suggestion
a good one, and said the question was
whether they should be printed in a
newspaper or in pamphlet form. He
imagined that printing them in a newspaper would be the best way.
Aid. Pattullo: In a daily or a semi-
weekly.
Aid. Hilditch's reply to this direct
question could not be understood. He
went on to say he thought it might be
an expensive job to print so long a
bylaw.

ITHREE   DISTINCT   PARTIES   ON
THE   WAR   PATH
[Earliest Movement Spreading Under
Cloak of Movement For Upsetting
Throne and Establishing Republic
What One Minister Says.
(Special to the Optimist)
Madrid, August 2.���In spite of the
lalarming  reports  that   the  movement
Iwhich is keeping Spain in a continual
jturmoil  is  an   attempt   to  upset  the
dynasty and proclaim a republic, there
\t no doubt whatever that the Carlist
novement is spreading  and that the
followers of the old regime are prepared
to take advantage of the first opportunity
| to swing the frenzied populace into line
���for the Pretender. Even Premier Canale-
Ijas admitted this morning that a civil
[was is certain.    He believes, however,
[that when the struggle comes a majority
lof the people will be found with the
j government because it is and has been
[with them tooth and nail on the cleric
I policy.
He admits, also, that there are three
[strong parties in the field, the revolutionists, the Carlists and the clerics.
The latter can scarcely be called a party,
he says, but is a trouble-formenter
against the government among all ranks
and classes. It is serving the good purpose of keeping the two beligerent
forces at odds with each other. Even
should all the rebellious forces unite
ho does not believe they could win in a
civil war.
Meanwhile he is taking vigorous
measures to prevent the circulation
ol revolutionary literature and the display of revolutionary placards.

JOHN MORRISON BURIED
Postmortem Revealed  no   Evidence
Of Foul Play
John Morrison, whose body was found
floating in the water .outside the island
and below the Skeena river, was buried
in Port Essington last week. A doctor
held a postmortem and could find no
trace whatever of foul play. Under the
circumstances Coroner J. H. McMullen
decided that no inquest was necessary.
It was a case of accidental drowning.
-Morrison disappeared three weeks ago
last Sunday and was only found last
Saturday,
(Special to Optimist.)
Madrid, August 2nd.���The clericals
of Spain are beginning to realize that the
people of Spain are too disrupted by
contending ambitions to be united on the
church question. The church has been
bargaining with the revolutionists, the
leaders of the republic movement and
the Carlists, and has come to the conclusion that it cannot rely upon either one
of the party and runs a danger of itself
being used as a catspaw in the threat
ened revolt. As a party the church feels
that it is not strong enough and is unprepared to start a war, and it is therefore
now endeavoring to patch up a peace
with Premier Canalejas.
King Alfonso had troubles enough on
Mb hands without them being multiplied by the introduction of the church
question into the industrial and revolutionary situation throughout Spain.
Premier Canalejas has been in conference with his majesty twice upon the
question and again this morning, urging
the king to support the cabinet's demand
for drastic opposition to the demands of
the Vatican, which are that the ministry
shall withdraw all objectionable church
legislation.
It is no secret that the king and hit
ministers are fighting for their political
lives. The insurrectionists throughout
Spain are growing in power and in open
denunciation of the present regime.The
Vatican unquestionably relies upon the
overthrow of the ministry to win its
point. The king is a devout Catholic and
yet it is believed that he will decide for
the government unless it should recede
from its bold stand for increased religious tolerance. The immediate passage
of such a measure would spike some of
the guns of the revolutionists.
No fresh outbreaks were reported this
morning but a general rising ia at all
times imminent.

CARLISTS  ARE READY
(Special to The Optimist)
Vienna, Aug. 2.���Don Jaime,
the Carlist pretender to the Spanish throne, held a conference this
morning with his lieutenants.
The latter advised immediate action. The Pretender said he was
loath to invade Spain, but must
be guided by circumstances.

CHAS.   NEIL  FOUND
Body Was in   the Blind Slough For
Three   Weeks
The body of Chas. Neil, who was
drowned in the Blind Slough some three
weeks ago was found just outside the
Slough Saturday. Chief Wynn went
over to the Oceanic Cannery on Sunday
and took charge of the remains and after
having them identified took them to
Port Essington for burial. The funeral
will be held on Tuesday. A statement
from John R. Jackson was taken and
is as follows :-
John R. Jackson was with Neil.
They took a boat from the Inverness
Cannery on the usual terms for fishing
purposes on July 'th. On the tenth they
left the cannery and crossed the slough
to Neil's house where they took on
provisions. They then went up the
Slough to the blind Slough They anchored and put out the net to let it
drift. At eleven o'clock Jackson turned
in and left Neil sitting on a box smoking.
Jackson went to sleep and did not wake
up until daylight. He shouted "What
time is it?" There was no answer. He
looked for Neil but he was gone. He
pulled in the net and rowed to the mouth
of the Blind Slough. He reported to an
Indian and sent him to notify the steamer
Florence. He also reported to the
Dominion Cannery and at Inverness
Cannery asked Mr. Johnson to notify
the police. The two men had drunk a
bottle of whiskey during the night.
CITY APPLIES
FOR A LOAN
HOW    IT    IS   CONSIDERED     BY
VICTORIA   POWERS
Matter of Special Advance of Fifty
Thousand Dollars To Aid Acquirement and Installation of
Waterworks   Still   Under   Debate.
Victoria, July 29.���A short session
of the executive council was held yesterday at which consideration was
given the application of the city of
Prince Rupert for a special loan of
$60,000 to facilitate the acquirement
and installation of an electrical plant.
The matter is still under debate.
Another short session of the cabinet
for the transaction of routine business is to be held today, and on August 9 the full executive will meet to
dispose of an accumulation of important business, including the consideration of the railway policy for the
Queen Charlottes, the adjustment of
the question of squatters' rights on the
Ross-McLaren timber lands, etc.
COST OF  RECEPTION
Committee   Estimated    That   They
Will Require $1700 to Entertain
THAT OLIVER RUMOR
Minister Has No Intention of Retiring
Say   His   Friends.
Ottawa, July 29.���Political friends
here of Hon. Frank Oliver discredit
the rumor that he is to retire from
politics and go on the railway commission.
"Every time the minister gets beyond range of communication that
story is sent out from Winnipeg," said
one of them yesterday. "There is
nothing in it, and there is no one in
sight to take Mr. Oliver's place if he
should retire."
The decoration committee met last
night and prepared an estimate of the
cost of the reception to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier on August 20th. They figure
that with the arch illuminations, decorations, etc., they will require $1700.
Secretary Crippen was instructed to
notify the city council of that fact, so
that body might prepare itself of the
sight draft that will strike them in the
near future.

couples on phrenological lines. All will
enjoy this educational wedding. Call

Banquet in Stewart
A banquet was tendered D. D. Mann
by the citia'ens of Stewart on July 26th
in the Empress Hotel. About forty
guests were present and a very enjoyable time was spent. It was the first
banquet tendered to any one in the northern mining town.
Several telegrams have been received
in the past two days by Vemor W.
Smith, from J. D. Campbell, the mining
expert who has charge of the Silver Cup
mines, Ninemile Mountain, and everyone
of them is more encouraging than the
one preceding. It looks as if the Prince
Rupert men who have invested in this
mine have struck the big thing.
The series of telegrams show the
gradual widening of the pay streak, each
one apparently held to be of more importance than the last. First a lead of
five feet of good concentrating ore was
reported, this widening intil it measured
five feet nine inches. This carried good
values as concentrating ore. But in
addition it has a streak of very high
galena running through it, starting at
two feet wide. This is phenominal, as
from eight to ten inches has been considered rich enough to pay big money
among the leading silver-lead mines
of the Kootenays. Furthermore the vein,
while maintaining its richness, has
broadened out a few inches as development proceeded.
There now seems to be no doubt
whatever but that the Silver Cup will
prove to be one of the first shippers
and return smelter values that will
cause a mild sensation at least.

HOLMAN GOT OFF
Charged   With   Wounding   a   Man
At   Hazelton.
Chas. Holman appeared before Judge
Young at Hazelton last week on a
charge of wounding a man in one of the
camps near that town. Holman first
desired a jury trial and was taken south
to wait for the sessions. In the meantime
he changed bis mind and asked for a
speedy trial, He was brought back
and Judge Young heard the case. The
evidence was not sufficient to warrant
a conviction and Holman was dismissed.
There were also several civil cases
disposed of by the judge and court was
adjourned in time to allow him to get
the boat down, and he arrived in Prince
Rupert Friday afternoon.

Port Essington Has a Cinch on Local

The postal authorities have arranged
for a daily mail service for Port Essington by the steamer Chieftain. This
clears up many odds and ends of the
postal service, and is of great convenience because of the many changes
of address of men who float in and out
of that district.
While the Port Simpson is off the run
doing the pioneer stunt on the waters
of the Stickine, the steamer Inlander
is carrying the mails for Hazelton
and all up river points above Essington.

CITY APPLIES
FOR A LOAN
HOW
IT    IS   CONSIDERED
VICTORIA  POWERS
BY
Matter of Special Advance of Fifty
Thousand Dollars To Aid Acquirement and Installation of
Waterworks   Still   Under   Debate.
Victoria, July 29.���A short session
of the executive council was held yesterday at which consideration was
given the application of the city of
Prince Rupert for a special loan of
$50,000 to facilitate the acquirement
and installation of an electrical plant.
The matter is still under debate.
Another short session of the cabinet
for the transaction of routine business is to be held today, and on August 9 the full executive will meet to
dispose of an accumulation of important business, including the consideration of the railway policy for the
Queen Charlottes, the adjustment of
the question of squatters' rights on the
Ross-McLaren timber lands, etc.

THAT OLIVER RUMOR
Minister Has No Intention of Retiring
Say   His   Friends.
Ottawa, July 29.���Political friends
here of Hon. Frank Oliver discredit
the rumor that he is to retire from
politics and go on the railway commission.
"Every time the minister gets beyond range of communication that
story is sent out from Winnipeg," said
one of them yesterday. "There is
nothing in it, and there is no one in
sight to take Mr. Oliver's place if he
should retire."
The decoration committee met last
night and prepared an estimate of the
cost of the reception to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier on August 20th. They figure
that with the arch illuminations, decorations, etc., they will require $1700.
Secretary Crippen was instructed to
notify the city council of that fact, so
that body might prepare itself of the
sight draft that will strike them in the
near future.

Banquet in Stewart
A banquet was tendered D. D. Mann
by the citm'ens of Stewart on July 26th
in the Empress Hotel. About forty
guests were present and a very enjoyable time was spent. It was the first
banquet tendered to any one in the northern mining town.
Several telegrams have been received
in the past two days by Vernor W.
Smith, from J. D. Campbell, the mining
expert who has charge of the Silver Cup
mines, Ninemile Mountain, and everyone
of them is more encouraging than the
one preceding. It looks as if the Prince
Rupert men who have invested in this
mine have struck the big thing.
The series of telegrams show the
gradual widening of the pay streak, each
one apparently held to be of more importance than the last. First a lead of
five feet of good concentrating ore was
reported, this widening intil it measured
five feet nine inches. This carried good
values as concentrating ore. But in
addition it has a streak of very high
galena running through it, starting at
two feet wide. This is phenominal, aa
from eight to ten inches has been con*
sidered rich enough to pay big money
among the leading silver-lead mines
of the Kootenays. Furthermore the vein,
while maintaining its richness, has
broadened out a few inches as development proceeded.
There now seems to be no doubt
whatever but that the Silver Cup will
prove to be one of the first shippers
and return smelter values that will
cause a mild sensation at least.

INSTALL STEAM HEATING.
Government Engineer Recommends
Two   Steam   Boilers.
There is a strong probability that
Prince Rupert's new Public School will
be heated by steam as desired by the
school board, instead of hot air, as was
first talked of. Wm. Manson, M. P. P.
received a letter to-day from headquarters including a report from R. F.
Lawrence, consulting and heating
engineer to the Department of Education. That gentlemen recommends
installing two steam boilers each with a
capacity of heating the whole space in
case of a break or mishap, thus preventing any loss of heat. The steam plant is
recommended on account of being cleaner
healthier, and more easily to regulate. Mr
Lawrence also recommends the installation of a 1000 gallon tank for use in case
the city water mains freeze or break.
The other requirements as suggested
by the board are being considered by
the officials of the department.

interests delayed him and he had to come
by rail atid boat. This is his first visit
to Rupert and he is delighted with the
place. He is a guest of David H. Hays and
in company with him went over the town
site laBt night. As a result of the visit he
will recommend his company to encourage more investment in Prince Rupert

things a little better THAN USUAL.
They like to have a pleasant

They will cheerfully, eagerly,

PREPARING FOR FAIR
Captain Nicholson Finda People on
Islands  Very  Enthusiastic
Captain Nicholson, superintendent of
navigation for the'_Grand Trunk Pacific,
returned from the Islands Sunday on
the Prince Albert and announced a
change of the schedule for that boat.
The Prince Albert on Wednesdays will
run from here to Skidegate as usual but
from there will go to Ikeda bay returning to Queen Charlotte city. This
will enable people from Prince Rupert
to go to the islands, transact their
business and return on the same boat.
On Sundays the Prince Albert goes to
Masset first, calling at Port Simpson
and other ports on return.
Captain Nicholson reported that he
found the people on Queen Charlotte
island enthusiastic in their desire to
make a good showing at the Prince
Rupert fair, and they feel confident
of surprising the people of Prince Ruper
and their visitor^ at what the islands
can produce.
The Captain yesterday went up to
Stewart on the Prince George.

J. G. Crombie Was Almost Drowned
In    Sewer   Excavation
Last evening J. G. Crombie was going
to hit rooms at the New Knox when he
was almost killed and then nearly
drowned. It was dark and Mr. Crombie
fell over the edge of the walk on Second
avenue near the public school. The
drop was about 12 feet and Mr. Crombie
never knew what he struck. He fell
into the sewer excavation which has
several feet of water in it. Constable
McKeon was near and ran to his assistance. He located the drowning man
by the aid of his new search light.
Mr. Crombie was under water. The constable rescued him but it took some time
to work the water out of his lung.
Today Mr. Crombie is pretty badly

Rupert from the beginning, has severed
his connection with the firm. Sunday
was his last day on the old job. H��
leaves this week for a trip up the river

days and when he returns will make
another trip up north as far as Skagway.
He will devote all his time to the interests of the Oliver Typwwriter Co.,
of which he has been agent for some
time. When he returns from the north
he expects to take a couple of month's
rest in California and the southern

not been in the best of health and thinks
the change and rest will do him good.

FRONTAGE TAX IN UNSOLD SECTIONS
The city council has decided on the grading of streets, building roads, makiig
walks and soforth, by frontage tax. There is a possibility of a unique situation under
that plan. Supposing the G. T. P. who own 75 per cent of all the property in sections
two, three, four and nine should petition the council to put in $200,000 or even
$500,000 worth of walks and roads in the four sections mentioned.. The city council
would have to do it under the provisions of their by-law. It would mean that the
city would have to borrow the total amount required to make the improvements.
This would be charged up against the property and paid back in 20 annual instalments. In the meantime the Grand Trunk Pacific would auction off the lots.
They would have the benefit of selling,improved property without it having cost
them a cent. The installments would be paid by the purchasers of lots and the
credit of the city might be exhausted in merely building streets in the outlying
sections for the benefit of the G. T. P. Such a condition may not arise but the G. T.
P. surely will improve these unsold sections and they might decide to utilize the
city's credit instead of their own. The average business man would be tempted to
doit.
Having suggested that everyone should help pay for Section one sewers probably Aid. Lynch will ask the city council to vote a sum to pay for the private
sewer put in by the property owners on Second avenue from Sixth to Seventh St.
Prince Rupert seems to be the only Grand Trunk town that is not embarrassed
by the big strike.

Aid. Pattullo: I do not know that is
a ��ut rate. I think we must have assumed that it is. He went on to say that
if printed in a newspaper the copycon-
taining it might be mislaid when wanted
and the bylaw was so important that it
seemed it ought to be published in
pamphlet form. But of course it would
be amended in a short time and it would
make it expensive to print it again.
The matter was referred to the finance committee to find out what it
would cost printed in pamphlet form.
Clearing Out the Squatters
Aid. Hilditch, referring to the blasting
that had been authorized at First avenue
and Sixth, said the squatters there had
no way to take off their buildings,
and they could do so better if a plank
road was put in. He owned property
there which would cost him $60 to move.
He^ would rather pay this amount for
the purpose Of a road that would be
a permanent improvement and he believed
the other owners would.
Aid. Barrow did not see why these
owners were entitled to any special
consideration. The people knew what
they incurred when building on the street,
some of them had put, their buildings
there after the streets were laid out.
There was nothing to do except to order
them off and they could not expect
anything different.
Other members spoke, saying it was
not intended to be harsh in the case,
but the council could not make any
deviation from the rule laid down.
Intelligence Office Fees
The unfinished bylaw regarding employment offices was taken up and the
Mew clause read fixing the fee to be
charged by such offices at not more than
25c. Legal Adviser Williams pointed
out that if it was sought to enforce
such bylaw the court might hold such
a regulation prohibitory and the regulation would tnerefore be void. In
order to make it legal he suggested
that it be 50 c. The council, however,
decided to let it go at 25c, Aid. Hilditch
holding that if the city could legally
do such work at 25c an individual could.
May Have a Lawsuit.
The City Clerk read a letter from the
General Electric Company acknowledging the return of the company's
cheque for $650, the amount they had
put up with their bid, and concluding:
"We have handed your letter to our
Toronto office, to take action if they see
fit."
Clerk Woods said both the company's
cheques had been returned and the
letter was placed on file.
An Unsightly Puddle
The report of Dr. Reddie, with the
recommendation of the health committee
appended, was read. It read as follows:
"I wish to call your attention to a piece
of ground on Sixth street, facing the Hart
furniture store. It is an unhealthy and
unsightly puddle and a menace to the
health of the city during the dry weather.
I would recommend that the ditch leading
therefrom be cleared out so as to admit
of free drainage and that the decayed
timber and other rubbish be removed.
Two days of a man under the direction
of the sanitary inspector would, I think,
be sufficient in the meantime.
On the motion of Aid. Pattullo,
seconded by Aid. Lynch, the work was
ordered to be done.
Purchase of a Safe
A letter was read from G. W. Morrow
that he had a safe on the dock weighing
two tons, and that if it suited the council
it could be purchased for what it cost
in Vancouver, $336, with freight charges
added and less a discount of ten per cent
for cash.
The matter was referred to the finance
committee, which was authorized to
make the purchase if the safe was found
to be what the city required.
Wages of Workmen
Aid. Lynch reported on the wages paid
by the city for laying plank, repairing
streets and such work, recommending
that the rate be $2 per day or 60c per
hour. This was midway between common
labor and skilled labor. He moved this
to be the rate to be paid.
Aid. Barrow said it was a small matter
to take up the time of the council, which
was meeting every night in the week.
Aid. Pattullo admitted it was a small
matter but it was at the same time one
that would cost or save the council
many thousands of dollars. He was
against starvation wages, in fact he
believed in high wages; at the same time

the men should not be paid more than
they were entitled to. If this was the
usual rate the council had better pay it.
The question was put to the vote and
carried.
Builders   Indemnity
The question came up of charging
contractors or owners of property erecting buildings a rate per diem for on-
structing the sidewalks in order that they
might be induced to remove any such
obstruction in the shortest possible
time. A rate of from ten to fifty cents
per day per front foot was talked of.
Aid. Mclntyre expressing his belief
that any such rate would work a hardship on the contractor or owner, who
should be encouraged instead of being
hampered.
After some discussion the matter was
referred to the building committee to
bring in a recommendation.
SPOKANE'S TOURISTS

at this port, the following letter has been
received by both. \' J;
"Your message of the 26th instant,
advising that the Immigration authorities will allow the Spokane passengers

"The steamer's schedule for the

this call and we are, therefore, not in a
position to respond to your suggestion.
Yours truly, E. C. Ward, assistant
manager."

W. A. Casey returned from Stewart
yesterday after spending several weeks
opening up the trail from Stewart to
American Creek. He states that the first
part of the work was easy but before he
got very far away the proposition was
quite different and he had all he wanted
to do. He pitched his tent on the Bitter
Creek glacier for a couple of days and also
took several views of the mountain of ice
which has come so prominently before the
public since the discovery of the gold on
the mountain above. Casey thinks that
the Crossett strike down below will prove
a richer proposition than the one above
the glacier.
Alaska's Labor Candidate
William O'Connor, labor candidate
for delegate to congress from Alaska;
came in on the Princess Royal on Saturday in the course of his campaign. Not
that Prince Rupert is a part of his constituency, although he met and chattered
with many old timers from the north in
his walk through the town, but he had
to come this way and journey all the way
to Seattle to get to Valdez, where he is
advertised to address a large gathering
of the constituency of Alaska. The
thousands of miles a candidate has to
travel in Alaska to meet only a few of
the voters must make a campaign in
that country a very expensive affair.
Fine Four Horse Team
The finest four horse team that has
ever come to Prince Rupert was landed
off the Prince George yesterday. They
are thorough-bred Clydesdales, of immense height and strength of dappled
grey and remarkably well matched.
They are for the Skeena river logging
company, which also have two other
large horses in the same shipment.

The boats from the south the past few
days brought a large number of visitors
to town who spent Saturday and Sunday
looking over the townsite. Many of them
were tourists and went on to the northern
ports with the boats.

QUESTION OF
STREET GRADE
TWO  PETITIONS  COME   BEFORE
THE   CITY   COUNCIL
For Alteration of Grade Near McBride and Third Avenue.��� Resolution to Blast at First and Seventh
In the city council last night two
petitions were read for the alteration of
the grade. The first of these was from
property owners of Fifth, Sixth and
Fraser street, who asked that the grade
of the latter be raised fifteen feet. The
second was from property owners of
Third avenue and McBride, who believed the grade should be made a
gradual one from McBride to Fourth
street.
On motion of Aid. Pattullo the
petitions were referred to the streets
committee with a recommendation that
the work be done if it would not cost
too much.
Aid. Lynch moved that the city
engineer be authorized to do such
blasting on First avenue and Seventh
street as might be necessary to grade
those streets at a later date without
damage to buildings that will be built
on this corner.
Aid. Hilditch seconded the motion and
explained what it meant.
Aid.   Pattullo;  What   will  it  cost?
Aid. Lynch: I have no idea.
Aid. Pattullo: We ought to know
whether it ia going to cost $600 or $6000.
Aid. Hilditch: I really don't know,
I know the city engineer went up to
examine it and he told me it was absolutely necessary it should be done.
The city engineer was sent for but
it was found he had left the building.
Aid. Pattullo did not think they should
undertake the work if the cost ran from
$60 to $6000. Some sum ought to
be mentioned in the resolution, say not
to exceed $250.
Aid. Lynch was willing.it should be
put at $200. There was less than one
hundred yards of rock and muck to be
removed.
Aid. Hilditch said he was going to
make it $300. The rock was only 14
feet above grade but in blasting the
biggest part of the rock would fall into
the excavation and would have to be
taken out.
With the addition of this sum the
motion was carried.
Notice
Notice is hereby given that a petition under the
provisions of The Revised Statutes of Canada,
Chapter 152, Section 6, and amendments thereto,
will be deposited in the office of John Shirley,
Sheriff of the County of Atlin. In the Provincial
Government Building, Prinee Rupert, B.C., on the
11th dav of August 1910, praying that a vote of
the electors of the City of Prince Rupert be taken
as provided ln said Chapter. Jy264Aug2

Port Simpson Will Probably Become
A Shipper of Lumber.
A. C. Voss, a large lumber operator
of Ceder Rapids, Iowa, is a visitor at
the Inn. He is accompanied by his wife
and little son and says this is a pleasure
trip with a little business interest on the
side. The "little business" is an immense
tract of fine timber land at Port Simpson
and Mr. Voss is looking over the situation to conclude if the time has arrived
when his syndicate should begin to put
the Port Simpson product on the marke
Mr. Voss was here three years ago
and took pleasure yesterday in rediscovering the few shacks that were
here at that time. He finds the city has
had a steady and normal growth considering its future and makes the conservative estimate that Prince Rupert
will be a town of twenty-five thousand
people in five years time. He leaves today to report to his syndicate at Cedar
Rapids.

Bishop Du Vernet has returned from
Vancouver where he took part in the
consecration of Bishop De Pencier of the
Diocese of New Westminster Archbishop
Matheson of Winnipeg, Bishop Perrin
of Victoria, and Bishop Keator of Tacoma
were the other bishops present. The simple but most impressive service took place
in St. Paul's Church, Vancouver, and was
attended by a large number of both the
clergy and laity. Bishop Du Vernet
brought back with him Rev. W. G.
James B. A. formerly of the Diocese of
Calgary to assist in Church work in
Prince Rupert and neighbourhood. Mr
James preached last evening in the Anglican Church on the subject of "Service".
The Synod of the Diocese will meet next

TRAIL   IS   OPENED.

Stewart   to   American   Creek.
W. A. Casey returned from Stewart
yesterday after spending several weeks
opening up the trail from Stewart to
American Creek. He states that the first
part of the work was easy but before he
got very far away the proposition was
quite different and he had all he wanted
to do. He pitched his tent on the Bitter
Creek glacier for a couple of days and also
took several views of the mountain of ice
which has come so prominently before the
public since the discovery of the gold on
tlie mountain above. Casey thinks that
the Crossett strike down below will prove
a richer proposition than the one above
the glacier.
Alaska's Labor Candidate
William O'Connor, labor candidate
for delegate to congress from Alaska',
came in on the Princess Royal on Saturday in the course of his campaign. Not
that Prince Rupert is a part of his constituency, although he met and chattered
with many old timers from the north in
his walk through the town, but he had
to come this way and journey all the way
to Seattle to get to Valdez, where he is
advertised to address a large gathering
of the constituency of Alaska. The
thousands of miles a candidate has to
travel in Alaska to meet only a few of
the voters must make a campaign in
that country a very expensive affair.
Fine Four Horse Team
The finest four horse team that has
ever come to Prince Rupert was landed
off the Prince George yesterday. They
are thorough-bred Clydesdales, of immense height and strength of dappled
grey and remarkably well matched.
They are for the Skeena river logging
company, which also have two other
large horses in the same shipment.
Went   to   Essington
Chief Wynn left Saturday afternoon
for the North Pacific Cannery and Port
Essington in connection with the drowning of John Morrison, an account of
the finding of his' body appeared in
Saturday's Optimist. The chief is expected to return today.
Many   Visitor*
The boats from the south the past few
days brought a large number of visitors
to town who spent Saturday and Sunday
looking over the townsite. Many of them
were tourists and went on to the northern
ports with the boats.

QUESTION OF
STREET GRADE
TWO  PETITIONS  COME   BEFORE
THE   CITY   COUNCIL
For Alteration of Grade Near McBride and Third Avenue.��� Resolution to Blast at First and Seventh
In the city council last night two
petitions were read for the alteration of
the grade. The first of these was from
property owners of Fifth, Sixth and
Fraser street, who asked that the grade
of the latter be raised fifteen feet. The
second was from property owners of
Third avenue and McBride, who believed the grade should be made a
gradual one from McBride to Fourth
street.
On motion of Aid. Pattullo the
petitions were referred to the streets
committee with a recommendation that
the work be done if it would not cost
too much.
Aid. Lynch moved that the city
engineer be authorized to do such
blasting on First avenue and Seventh
street as might be necessary to grade
those streets at a later date without
damage to buildings that will be built
on this corner.
Aid. Hilditch seconded the motion and
explained what it meant.
Aid.   Pattullo;  What   will  it  cost?
Aid. Lynch: I have no idea.
Aid. Pattullo: We ought to know
whether it is going to cost $500 or $6000.
Aid. Hilditch: I really don't know,
I know the city engineer went up to
examine it and he told me it was absolutely necessary it should be done.
The city engineer was sent for but
it was found he had left the building.
Aid. Pattullo did not think they should
undertake the work if the cost ran from
$60 to $6000. Some sum ought to
be mentioned in the resolution, say not
to exceed $250.
Aid. Lynch was willing.it should be
put at $200. There was less than one
hundred yards of rock and muck to be
removed.
Aid. Hilditch said he was going to
make it $300. The rock was only 14
feet above grade but in blasting the
biggest part of the rock would fall into
the excavation and would have to be
taken out.
With the addition of this sum the
motion was carried.
Notice
Notice Is hereby given thst s petition under the
Srevisions of The Revised Statutes of Canada,
hapter 162, Section 6, snd amendments thereto,
will be deposited in the office of John Shirley,
Sheriff of the County of Atlin, In the Provincial

: and little son and says this is a pleasure

I side. The "little business" is an immense
| tract of fine timber land at Port Simpson
and Mr. Voss is looking over the situation to conclude if the time has arrived
when his syndicate should begin to put
the Port Simpson product on the marke
Mr.  Voss was here three years ago
and  took  pleasure  yesterday  in     rediscovering the  few  shacks that  were
here at that time.  He finds the city has
had a steady and normal growth considering its future and makes the conservative estimate that Prince Rupert
will be a town of twenty-five thousand
people in five years time.   He leaves today to report to his syndicate at Cedar

GREAT   HEARTS   OF   THE  WEST
Special   Evangilist   Services   in   the
Baptist   Church
On Sunday Evangelist Leitch preached
the opening services in the new church
home of the Baptists at the head of
Sixth street. The Great Hearts of
the West was his morning subject.
Canada was a great country to make
Hearts; great in extent the largest
political division under one flag on the
North American continent The West
is the greatest port of Canada, great in its
resources; for here is the bread basket of
the empire and the lumberyard of the
continent ;here are the vaults of the
precious and useful minerals waiting
for the keys of industry to unlock; here
at the front door of Prince Rupert the
finny wealth of the world has gathered
to build up a great city.
Here too, in the west are a great
people who in the movements of immigration like cream have come to the
top; here are a climate and soil that
yield enough yet not too much, to
draw forth the energies of the people
and will produce great hearts like
Scotland instead of the shallow hearts
of Spain.
But more than muscle is needed for
then the Negro Champion would be the
greatest heart, more than brain is needed
for then the polished swindler would
be a great heart. We need a Great
Gospel to make Great Hearts. That
Gospel of forgiveness and the Spirit of
Goodness brought to us by Jesus is
the power to transform lives. This
makes men right as well as clever; good
as well as strong.
In the evening the Evangelist pictured
Adam hiding from God behind a tree
and the various trees of pretexts and
excuses behind which men try to bid
from God and duty.
A feature of the service was the help
endered by the Gray orchestra. Their
rendering of The Lost Chord was much
appreciated.
Evangelist Leitch will conduct Evangelistic services each night this week
except Saturday.
TWO   WERE   FOUND
Wm.
Gilroy,   Drowned   at  Zanardi
Bridge is Still Missing
The bodies of two of the three men
drowned in this end of the Skeena river
during the past few weeks have been
discovered and buried, John Morrison,
found on Saturday and Chas. Neil,
found Saturday night. Wm. Gilroy, who
fell off the Zanardi Rapids bridge soma
weeks ago has not yet been found, but the
hunt had not been given up.
NOT TOMMY BURNS
Tourists on the^Prince George Have
Baskets Full of Fun
Some joker on board the Prince
George on her way up had a lot of fun
to himself for a time and then others
joined in it. One of the passengers was
heard to whisper: "Did you know
Tommy Burns was on Board?" "That's
him; that sturdy set chap." The word
was passed and nothing was talked of
for some time but the grand record the
Canadian pugilist had made even if
he had been defeated by the colored
man. That the latter beat Jeffries seemed
to be some excuse for the defeat of Burns
and there was an inclination to make
him a hero.    Meantime, the soidisant
Burns kept himself to himself in lonely
When the passengers were coming
down the gangplank here "Tommy
Burns" was pointed out to Mr. McMaster
"Let me get a square look at him;
I've seen him play lacrosse at Fort
William." He walked all around the
passenger to get a square look at him.
"That isn't Burns," he sighed. And
everybody cruelly laughed.
