LABOR DISPUTES
ON THIRD AVE.
THIRTY MEN OF S. P. MC MOR-
DIE'S GANG STANDING IDLE
Difference of Opinion Between Con
tractor and Laborers Over Length
of the Working Day Whether Ten
or Eight Houra.
PROMISING MINING CLAIMS
Reported by Alex. Millar on Hudson
Bay Mountain
Matters in connection with the grading of Third avenue are not going as
mioothiy as could be desired just at
present. The work was going forward
this morning certainly as could be seen,
but the appearance of a number of husky
laborers standing round with their
thrust deep into their pickets,
watching the other fellows work, did not
look so healthy as the same gang looked
when on the job yesterday.
Some thirty men are having a dispute
with the contractor S. P. MeMordie
over the length of the working day.
Should the day be one of ten or one of
eight? is the question immediately at
issue. Nothing so far has been said
on the subject of the wage for the days
work by either  party.
The trouble began at five o'clock
last night when S. P. MeMordie who had
been supervising the work on Third
avenue went down to attend to the same
duty in connection with his sewer contract.
Shortly after he arrived there his
foreman on the Third avenue contract
came hurrying down to him with the
news that the gang had quit work at
five p.m. declaring that they intended
to work only an eight hour day.
The terms of S. P. McMordie's contract are that a day of not less than
eight hours shall be worked at a minimum wage of $3 but no stipulation
exists to limit the day to eight hours.
The eight hour day is from 8 a.m.
to noon, and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The ten hour day from 7 a.m. to noon,
and from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. The wage
for the eight hour day is $3,for ten hour
day $3.75.
As soon as Mr. MeMordie understood
how matters were, he prepared to have
work started .as usual at seven o'clock
this morning with a new gang of men.
The disaffected gang was there, however, and the men made a hostile demonstration. Matters for a moment
looked ugly the old gang insisting on
going to work and Mr. MeMordie thought
it advisable to send for a police officer
who came round promptly but found
matters quieter then and Mr. MeMordie
directing the work of the new gang unmolested.
Interviewed by the Optimist this
morning S. P. MeMordie remarked that
yy was, simply a question of his conducting the contract in his own way
'or the best interests of the city and his
own business as contractor. There is
a time limit on the contract of eouree,
and it is desirable to get the work forward as rapidly as possible while the
food weather and longer Bght lasts.
M "Very   soon"   said   Mr.   MeMordie
we shall not be able to put in more than
an eight hour day as the winter sets in.
Just now the ten hour day is an advant-
age especially owing to the spell of good
working weather, therefore I have put
on �� gang of men who are willing to work
tne ten hour day."
At   9:30  this   morning   the   thirty
*��orers in dispute with S. P. MeMordie
���second "venue where they hadTxsen
wning the new gang at work and went
oown to the City Hall to interview the
Alex. Millar who has been investigating the mining country in the Hazelton
district, as representative of the H. F.
McRae Real Estate Co., returned to
Prince Rupert yesterday. He reports
having struck a very-promising group
of claims on the Hudson Bay Mountain.
The samples of the ore Mr. Millar has
brought in with him are of the finest
grade of silver and silver lead ores, and
Mr. Millar is enthusiastic about the
district he has been investigating.
The claims he has located on the
Hudson Bay Mountain will be developed in the spring by the H. F.
McRae Co.

His House Gets Home at Last
The process of moving Dr. J. 0.
Reddie's house by its long round about
route to its hew position on Fifth avenue
has been a tedious one, but is at length
nearing completion. The workmen were
engaged this morning in slewing the
house round into its permanent position.
OPENING   CLUB    BALL
Members of Kaien Island Club Give
Very   Successful   Social   Affair
The opening ball at the Kaien Island
Club last evening was a very popular
social event. It attracted a large attendance and the devotees of terpsichore
pronounced the Kaien Island Club ball
room to be the best in the city.
The club rooms were viewed for the
first time by the ladies and also by
many of the members. Their arrangement
and the good taste shown in fitting them
up were admired by all. The reading
ahd writing rooms with their cosy
comers and big fire place were given
over to the ladies and the large smoking
room to the men.
The ball room and the supper room
up-stairs were decorated with bunting
and Union Jacks and lighted with
colored electric lights. The orchestra
occupied a part of the gallery. A buffet
of refreshments was provided at one end
of the ball room and a dainty supper was
served up-stairs.
Even with the big floor space of the
gym, the dancers were so numerous
that they occasionally crowded. The
arrangements for the whole affair were
in charge of a committee composed of
C. H. Orme, Dr. McNeill, Dr. Tremayne,
Dr. Cade, and J. J. Chisholm and they
are to be complimented upon the great
success of the affair. The patronesses
were Mrs. Wm. Manson and Mrs. Fred
Stork.
At two o'clock yesterday afternoon
an inquest was -held on the remains of
Joseph Beaudoin who died from the
shot wound he received' on Thursday
night in the shack where he resided with
his mate, Alphonse Reicher.
The jury consisted of T. H. Thompson, Alec McRae, John Vaughan, J. R.
Beatty, J. D. Allen and J. H. Johnson.
The jurors having been duly sworn, and
the charge regarding their duties read
over to them by Coroner McMullin, an
adjournment was called to view the
remains of the deceased in F. W. Hart's
premises on the-Rupert Road.
Here the body lay temporarily coffined
and swathed in a blood stained garment.
The bullet had entered the left side under
the arm and remained lodged in the body.
The jury paid particular attention to
the position of the wound.
After evidence of identification had
been given by George St. Clair who
said he had known deceased Beaudoin
for about thirty-five years, the iqnuest
was adjourned until Monday evening
at eight o'clock.
It appears that Beaudoin comes of
well to do family. He was a native of
Quebec and has a brother in Michael, in
Wisconsin, and an uncle, N. Motin, who
is well known in the lumber business in
Vancouver. Joseph Beaudoin who was
of a disposition less inclined to settle
and save than the others of his family
was in Prince Rupert when the townsite
was cleared and did some contract work
then as a lumberman. He also did
contract work on the G. T. P. railway,
and it is understood at Stewart. Little
is as yet known of Alphonse Reicher
who is at present in custody over
this fatility.

More Laborers Arriving

Colliers    Return    to    Work
Kansas City, Mo., !5ept. 21.���Thirty
thousand coal miners of Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and Oklahoma who
have been on strike for five months returned to work today, all the mines in
the southwest having resumed operations. The contract with the miners
who returned to work will not expire
for two years.
Victoria, !3ept. 22.���At},ll o'clock this
morning an inquest on the body of George
Reid, who is alleged to have murdered his
wife at Clayburn several weeks ago,
and whose body was found floating . in
the Fraser River at Mission yesterday,
was begun at Mission.
Positive identification of the body
was made last night by a young man
named Porter, who had boarded in
Reid's house, and this morning the
provincial police headquarters here received further notification that the body
found was indeed that of the missing
man.
The gruesome discovery at Mission
confirms a belief that had grown in
the minds of the authorities for some
time, that Reid had taken his own
life shortly after the murder. The
strange disappearance of the man was
difficult to explain on any other hypothesis, as he was known to be unfamiliar with the country, and thus
handicapped in any effort he he might
make to evade justice.
Another fact in connection with the
murder of Mrs. Reid is explained by
the finding of the body. Before entering the water Reid had cut his throat,
and this explains why the razor with
which he is alleged to have killed his
wife was not found on the scene of
the tragedy. Reid had evidently taken
it away with him to use against himself.
The murder was committed on Sept.
6 and since that time the provincial
police have carried on a baffling search
for the criminal. The entire absence
of clues is now explained.
Bars Close at Eleven
New Westminster, B. C, .Sept. 23 ���
Commencing on Thursday of next week
all bars in the city will close at 11
o'clock, in accordance with the provisions of a recently passed by-law. The
hotel men are greatly annoyed at the
by-law being enforced before the provincial fair is over.
INQUEST   ON     CHARLES     DALY
Alphonse Reicher the man who gave
himself up at the police station on
Thursday evening over the shooting
of Joseph Beaudoin who died next
morning in hospital, and on whose body
an inquest was opened yesterday, appeared this morning before Magistrate
Cars* in the police court.
A charge of murder was preferred
against him.
Accused when asked if he had anything to say remained silent. He was
remanded until next Friday, and returned to the cell.
The evidence will be taken at the inquest on Joseph Beaudoin adjourned till
Monday at 8 p.m.
Who Died After Falling in Darkness
off  Plank way
Big Load  of Lumber
The Henriette towed out to Queen
Charlotte city the schooner North Bend,
to load a cargo of lumber for the Westen-
holm company.
Coroner McMullin opened an iqnuest
this afternoon upon the body of Charles
Daly who died from the effects of injuries to the head caused by his falling
in the darkness off a plankway crossing
the creek between the Dominion and
Grand hotels.
The following are the jurymen: G.
Armitage, F. E. Morgan, G. Wood-
house, Joseph Howe, James Ferguson,
and Geo. Leek who was elected foreman.
After the jury had been sworn, they adjourned to the Hart's morgue on Rupert
Road to view the body, and thence to
[famine the scene of the man's fall���
a precarious plankway which even in
daylight the jurymen found difficult -to
negotiate.
The inquest was afterwards adjourned
until 8 p. m., on Wednesday.

The Salvation Army will establish
a new citadel in Prince Rupert as announced in the Optimist some weeks
ago. The contract for the new building was let yesterday afternoon to E. H.
Morrison, and work on the new building will commence right away. The
army intends to lose no time at the outset
of their campaign, and on Sunday afternoon and evening Major and Mrs.
Morris will hold their opening meetings
in this city in the Empress theatre at
3 and 8p.m.
The new citadel in which the army
meetings will soon be held will occupy
a central site on Grandview Court at
the head of Sixth street near the Baptist
church. It is estimated to cost from
$10,000 to $13,000 and will be a structure
in every way suited to and worthy of
the Salvation Army's work. An officer's
residence will be included in the plans.
G.   T.   P.   AND   CITY   GARBAGE.
Health     Committee's     Suggestions
As to Mehan's Complaint
The health committee reported at
last night's council regarding the matter
of the complaint by Gen. Supt. Mehan
of the G. T. P. that the city's present
method of disposing of garbage etc., was
causing offence to passengers and others
on the wharf.
The committee after carefully going
into the question of garbage disposal
came to the conclusion that no other
method of getting rid of garbage than
the present one could be considered
practicable meantime. To instal a garbage reduction plant was at this stage
of the city's economy, impossible, and
the waterfront they were now using
was the only one available.
In view of the fact that the city was
now contemplating entering into negotiations with the G. T. P. on a matter
of mutual advantage, and that the question of a waterfront for the city would
probably enter into these negotiations,
the health committee could only suggest
that Gen. Supt. Mehan be requested to
tolerate the nuisance until such time as
the forthcoming negotiations might result in the city's obtaining a waterfront
of its own.
The report was adopted without discussion

for about thirty-five years, the iqnuest
was adjourned until Monday evening
at eight o'clock.
It appears that Beaudoin comes of
well to do family. He was a native of
Quebec and has a brother in Michael, in
Wisconsin, and an uncle, N. Motin, who
ia well known in the lumber business in
Vancouver. Joseph Beaudoin who was
of a disposition less inclined to settle
and save than the others of his family
was in Prince Rupert when the townsite
was cleared and did some contract work
then as a lumberman. He also did
contract work on the G. T. P. railway,
and it is understood at Stewart. Little
is as yet known of Alphonse Reicher
who is at present in custody over
this fatility.

Colliers    Return    to   Work

thousand coal miners of Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and Oklahoma who
have been on strike for five months returned to work today, all the mines in
the southwest having resumed operations. The contract with the miners
who returned to work will not expire
for two years.
Victoria, !3ept. 22.���Atjll o'clock this
morning an inquest on the body of George
Reid, who is alleged to have murdered his
wife at Clayburn several weeks ago,
and whose body was found floating in
the Fraser River at Mission yesterday,
was begun at Mission.
Positive identification of the body
was made last night by a young man
named Porter, who had boarded in
Reid's house, and this morning the
provincial police headquarters here received further notification that the body
found was indeed that of the missing
man.
The gruesome discovery at Mission
confirms a belief that had grown in
the minds of the authorities for. some
time, that Reid had taken his own
life shortly after the murder. The
strange disappearance of the man was
difficult to explain on any other hypothesis, as he was known to be unfamiliar with the country, and thus
handicapped in any effort he he might
make to evade justice.
Another fact in connection with the
murder of Mrs. Reid is explained by
the finding of the body. Before entering the water Reid had cut his throat,
and this explains why the razor with
which he is alleged to have killed his
wife was not found on the scene of
the tragedy. Reid had evidently taken
it away with him to use against himself.
The murder was committed on Sept.
6 and since that time the provincial
police have carried on a baffling search
for the criminal. The entire absence
of clues is now explained.
Bars Close at Eleven

himself up at the police station on

of Joseph Beaudoin who died next
morning in hospital, and on whose body

Carss in the police court.
A charge of murder was preferred
against him.
Accused when asked if he had anything to say remained silent. He was
remanded until next Friday, and returned to the cell.
The evidence will be taken at the inquest on Joseph Beaudoin adjourned till
Monday at 8 p.m.

For a few months past Ketchikan has
been ripped in twain over a double
system of keeping time. When the
summer days arrived a majority of our
citizens wanted more time in the afternoon for leisure, so it was agreed to turn
all clocks backward an hour says the
Ketchikan Miner. Thus we got out of
bed in the morning when we were sleepy
and went to bed when we were'nt. Half
the people refused to bunco themselves
into believing that it was seven o'clock
when it was only six, so refused to
subscribe to the new system of reckoning and the result was that nobody
knew where they were at.
In some families the old man, with
usual pig headedness, refused to submit
to a change in his meal hours. The kids
who went to school could not get their
lunch as before. Strife was rampant
and divorces threatened. In several
instances men were asked to take a
little eye opener at nine o'clock, when
their watches said it was only eight.
They refused by the watch, only to learn
with bitterness that they were on the
wrong system, and the golden opportunity
was forever lost.
It was an occasion like the above
that brought this paper to its sober
senses. We had been led astray by the
talk about more leisure. We wanted
the afternoon to ourselves. Long spells
of leisure and lots of them. But the eye
opener question began to interfere with
the regularity of our lives. It struck us
in a vital spot, and from now on we intend to so govern our habits and hours
of leisure that no more opportunities
shall pass us by like shimmering sunbeams
We have gone back to the time laid out
by the Almighty for the government of
this universe. Hereafter when the
golden orb of day says it is eight o'clock,
it is eight o'clock in this office. The
hands of the clock shall go their wonted
way and we will no more jerk them around
to suit to whims and fancies of the
wilighters. We have played the time
'imit with destiny and have lost several
appetizers.
What is man that he should arrogate
unto himself the prerogative of the gods?,
Should he in his vanity presume to know
more than the almanac and the weather
bureau? An hour stolen from the eventide must be paid back to the morning
with sleepy interest.
"Leaves have their time to fall.
And flowers to wither at the north
wind's call."
But we've had all seasons and all
times in Ketchikan.

Breaks Down When Cross-Questioned
And Admits She Killed Both Her
Father nnd Brother.���She is Only
Thirteen Years of Age.
Newkirk, Okla., Sep?. 21.���Posses
seeking the man who attacked Ebby
Alice Shepherd, 13. and beat her father,
Taylor Shepherd, and her brother,
j. W. Shepherd, to death, were called
today, when the little girl, tearful and
hysterical, confessed that she had killed
her relatives.
According to the confession, the
fttle girl sobbed out today the fan-
tistic story she told Saturday of assault and murder was fabricated to
cover her own terrible deed, when,
angered because they had beaten her
she stole up behind her father and
beat him to death with an axe, and
then fearing that her brother would
discover the deed and tell of it, she
killed him also.
The screams of the little girl brought
people to the scene of the attack Saturday. They found her unconscious,
her father bleeding and semi-conscious
was lying near her and her brother was
found not far away. The father regained consciousness and the few words
he managed to speak confirmed the
belief that a man had attacked his
daughter and then had beaten him.
Those who heard the few words that
Shepherd uttered believe today that he
did not know who struck him and they
think that the first blow probably
rendered him unconscious and that
the blows that were rained on his
head afterward he knew nothing of.
For hours the girl lay unconscious,
then when she regained her senses
she told of an attack that had been
made upon her. When she repeated
her story there were a number of discrepancies and she was closely questioned. Under the cross-examination
she broke down and told the story of
her attack on her father and brother.
She said that they had beaten her
severely. She is hysterical today and
under the care of a physician.
Both father  and   brother  lived  for
several   hours   after .they   had   been
���truck by the little girl.   J. W. Shep.
herd   never   regained   consciousness.
Both suffered  fractures  of  the  skull.

LONG DISTANCE CRITICS
Eleswhere in this issue is an article taken from the Edmonton Journal as a
criticism of G. T. P. construction methods and hinting at deep designs. One might
be led to suppose that the road referred to throughout the whole article was the
G. T. P. whereas the complaint about excessive cost refers to the Government
built portion of the line. The threadbare complaint of camp conditions does not
at least refer to construction on'this side of the mountain section which is proving
the most expensive and slowest. In the camps at this end the men are undoubtedly
as well or better fed than that class of men usually are. They receive a minimum
wage of $.3 per day and this is the highest paid unskilled labor on any big contract
in the country. The high wages while attracting a certain number of laborers
from cheaper fields is on the other hand often a detriment to the labor market.
Men soon get a little money ahead and then comes the desire to spend it. They
go a long way in search of a carousal and usually do not return. The contractors
lose thousands of dollars monthly during the summer season in advancing fares
and meals to men who do not go to work, for white man is mighty uncertain in
some things.
Other railroads may not be howling about the shortage of labor as the Journal
says but none of them have like conditions to encounter as have the G. T. P. on
the West Coast.
As for the suggestion that the G. T. P. may abandon the agreement with the
Government, the suggestion is absurd and not worthy of consideration.
Out at Edmonton there may be plenty of labor. In fact, the contractors
can get all the help they want at $2 per day but that does not justify the Edmonton
Journal claiming the cry of shortage is all tommyrot. Long distance critics are
very likely to miss a few essential points.

to pay a visit to the two new and promising cities of Prince Rupert and Stewart.
Residents of the former have recently
addressed a largely signed petition to
the first minister, requesting that he
use his unfluence toward securing the
early completion of the government
wharf at Rupert. The subject will be
elaborated in an interview during the

the  Second avenue contract regarding
labor and the working day.
The men are acting as a body and without any proclaimed leader, but the foremost advocate of their cause amongst
themselves are John Johnson, James Rosb
and James Brighton. These men state
that the whole gang are anxious only
to conform to the terms of the contract,
and maintain that though one day of
ten hours has been put in by the gang
since the job started, they had all along
the idea that they were engaged to work
an eight hour day. There was some
mention of a time and a half clause in
the contract regarding wages for hours
worked over the eight, but this the men
do not immediately emphasize, repeating
that they-will abide by what is in the
contract anyway.
The gang further maintains that there
was no strike on their part; that they
came on the job this morning prepared
to work an eight hour day; that they
were not given a chance to work nor to
state their case; and that the policeman
was summoned to turn them off the job.
They further argue that if they are,
as they consider themselves, dismissed,
they were entitled to receive their time
on the spot and at once, not at 3p.m.
as promised by Mr. MeMordie
There is no time and a half clause in
the city contracts for Second avenue
grading. The men were informed on
this point by the city engineer this
morning and agreed to waituntil three
o'clock in the afternoon when the city
engineer thinks that possibly the matter
will be amicably settled so that they can
start again on Monday. The city
engineer consulted with S. P. MeMordie
on the position this afternoon.
The opinion prevails among the
citizens that the men are ill-advised to
enter upon any sort of dispute regarding
hours at this season since their working
day will inevitably be curtailed soon
enough by the approach of winter. aSome
business men, however, think that if
a man wants to work eight hours instead
of ten, or ten hours in preference to
eight, and is pa'd by the hour he might
as well be allowed to work for the time
that suits him when his labor is needed
for the city's improvement.

MINING STRIKE
NEAR BOUNDARY
STEAMBOAT DISTRICT OF BRITISH   COLUMBIA
Ore Running Over Thousand Dollars Gold and Twenty-Six Ounces
Silver.���Another Strike of Free
Milling Ore is Made.
Vancouver, aSept. 21.���"A new strike
has been made by Webb & Co of Seattle
on their property in the Steamboat
district of B. C, that runs $1108 in
gold and 26 ounces in silver," said Mr.
B. A. Jennings late of Nevada, in an interview yesterday. Mr. Jennings has now
made Vancouver his headquarters and intends to play a part in the mining life of
the province. He has recently returned
from Steamboat Mountain, which is
situated at the headwaters of the Skagit,
"This property," he continued, "lies
close to the boundary line on the British
Columbia side, and shows how extensive is the mineralized zone of the province. And in addition to the importance
of a strike bo close to Vancouver city,
specimens of the new strike show free
gold, the ore being porphyry, similar
to that of the original strike made by
Dan Greenwaldt on Steamboat Moun
tain."
Mr. Jennings referred to another body
of ore in the same neighborhood, which
pans freely, but which has not yet been
assayed. Jetter and Hewitt have also
uncovered a ledge of good free-milling
ore of gold and some silver.

SUNDAY SPECIALS
Delicious Meats,  Fruits and Vegetables at the Fish Market
The Prince Rupert Fish Market has
a fine line of specials today which should
tempt, everyone who enjoys an appetizing dinner on Sunday. Take the
game meat for instance. What will
satisfy the inner man better than a
juicy venison steak or roast, or one of
those old time rabbit pot pies that
mother used to make. The Fish Market
has both rabbits and venison. They have
also some fine young turkeys and chickens
as well as other fowl. To go with these
meats they have a supply of fresh vegetables, such as .cauliflower, cabbage,
beats, carrots and green stuff. Then
there are all kinds of fresh fruits just
received from the orchards and vineyards. Last, not least, their eggs are
guaranteed fresh. They are not stamped,
but the personal guarantee of the Fish
Market goes with each egg.
It will also prove exceedingly attractive
to the rinking business Mr. Warren had
certainly an ear for music when he

Roller Skating Rink Has ��� New Attraction That Will Be Appreciated.
Mr.. L. J. Warren who has returned
on the Prince George Sunday last after
two weeks business trip to Vancouver and
Seattle and other cities on the coast,
has brought back with him a fine
Wurlitzer Automatic Military Band
organ which operates by preforated
paper rolls and is equal to a 10 piece
human band. This instrument consists
of outside���visible 13 brass trumpets,
13 brass piccolos, 13 wooden flagolets.
Inside 6 open basses 13 open pipes 6
stopped pipes 11 pipes in accompanied.
Bottom 6 stopped basses, 7 stopped
pipes, 10 pieces in accompanied, 1 stop
for trumpets also base and snare drum.
It has a surprising volume of tone, is
very handsome in appearance and is
especially fine for dancing and skating.
Hazelton, Sept. 23.���On the Silver
Cup the number two tunnel is being
driven ahead on four feet of high grade
ore and sacked ready for shipment.
C. Bierns has secured the contract for
packing 100 tons of ore and proposes to
keep his pack train busy on these shipments until the close of navigation.
Work on the Duchess claim of the com-
lany has disclosed a fine body of ore and
proves the Cup vein for a length of
over 300 feet with practically the whole
of the Silver Dollar claim unexplored.
Winter cabins have been constructed
and all necessary plans made for the
continuance of vigorous development
throughout the winter. It is calculated
to have the mine in shape for a phenomin-
al production next spring and summer.
Judging by the estimates placed on the
property by engineers and experienced
mining men who have recently visited
the mine it is evident the Silver Cup
mine is destined to make Ninemile
mountain and the Hazelton mining
district famous.

Montreal, aSept. 21.���The statement is
made here that one reason why the
Canadian Pacific Railway was not
keeping up its service in various parts of
the country and was not making improvements, is that the main efforts
of the two or three men at the head of
the company have been devoted of late
to an attempt at securing control of
the Grand Trunk Railway, and
perhaps the Grand Trunk Pacific, and
that a mighty consolidation is at this
monent under the consideration of Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy.

LONG DISTANCE CRITICS
Eleswhere in this issue is an article taken from the Edmonton Journal as a
criticism of G. T. P. construction methods and hinting at deep designs. One might
be led to suppose that the road referred to throughout the whole article was the
G. T. P. whereas the complaint about excessive cost refers to the Government
built portion of the line. The threadbare complaint of camp conditions does not
at least refer to construction on'this side of the mountain section which is proving
the most expensive and slowest. In the camps at this end the men are undoubtedly
as well or better fed than that class of men usually are. They receive a minimum
wage of $3 per day and this is the highest paid unskilled labor on any big contract
in the country. The high wages while attracting a certain number of laborers
from cheaper fields is on the other hand often a detriment to the labor market.
Men soon get a little money ahead and then comes the desire to spend it. They
go a long way in search of a carousal and usually do not return. The contractors
lose thousands of dollars monthly during the summer season in advancing fares
and meals to men who do not go to work, for white man is mighty uncertain in
some things.
Other railroads may not be howling about the shortage of labor as the Journal
says but none of them have like conditions to encounter as have the G. T. P. on
the West Coast.
As for the suggestion that the G. T. P. may abandon the agreement with the
Government, the suggestion is absurd and not worthy of consideration.
Out at Edmonton there may be plenty of labor. In fact, the contractors
can get all the help they want at $2 per day but that does not justify the Edmonton
Journal claiming the cry of shortage is ail tommyrot. Long distance critics are
very likely to miss a few essential points.

all ran up hill and he wondered how they ever came down again. He concluded,
naively, that perhaps they didn't until they were graded. O. H. should have seen

Fighting Bob Evans declares that he. had more truoble with his sailors getting

LABOR DISPUTES
ON THIRD AVE.
continued from page 1
the Second avenue contract regarding
labor and the working day.
The men are acting as a body and without any proclaimed leader, but the foremost advocate of their cause amongst
themselves are John Johnson, James Ross
and James Brighton. These men state
that the whole gang are anxious only
to conform to the terms of the contract,
and maintain that though one day of
ten hours has been put in by the gang
since the job started, they had all along
the idea that they were engaged to work
an eight hour day. There was some
mention of a time and a half clause in
the contract regarding wages for hours
worked over the eight, but this the men
do not immediately emphasize, repeating
that they* will abide by what is in the
contract anyway.
The gang further maintains that there
was no strike on their part; that they
came on the job this morning prepared
to work an eight hour day; that they
were not given a chance to work nor to
state their case; and that the policeman
was summoned to turn them off the job.
They further argue that if they are,
as they consider themselves, dismissed,
they were entitled to receive their time
on the spot and at once, not at 3p.m.
as promised by Mr. MeMordie
There is no time and a half clause in
.he city contracts for Second avenue
grading. The men were informed on
this point by the city engineer this
morning and agreed to wait^until three
o'clock in the afternoon when the city
engineer thinks that possibly the matter
will be amicably settled so that they can
start again nn Monday. The city
engineer consulted with S. P. MeMordie
on the position this afternoon.
The opinion prevails among the
citizens that the men are ill-advised to
enter upon any sort of dispute regarding
hours at this season since their working
day will inevitably be curtailed soon
enough by the approach of winter. Some
business men, however, think that if
a man wants to work eight hours instead
of ten, or ten hours in preference to
eight, and is paid by the hour he might
as well be allowed to work for the time
that suits him when his labor is needed
for the city's improvement.

MINING STRIKE
NEAR BOUNDARY
STEAMBOAT DISTRICT OF BRITISH   COLUMBIA
Ore Running Over Thousand Dollars Gold and Twenty-Six Ounces
Silver.���Another Strike of Free
Milling Ore is Made.
Vancouver, aSept. 21.���"A new strike
has been made by Webb & Co of Seattle
on their property in the Steamboat
district of B. C, that runs $1108 in
gold and 26 ounces in silver," said Mr.
B. A. Jennings late of Nevada, in an interview yesterday. Mr. Jennings has now
made Vancouver his headquarters and intends to play a part in the mining life of
the province. He has recently returned
from Steamboat Mountain, which is
situated at the headwaters of the Skagit,
"This property," he continued, "lies
close to the boundary line on the British
Columbia side, and shows how extensive is the mineralized zone of the province. And in addition to the importance
of a strike so close to Vancouver city,
specimens of the new strike show free
gold, the ore being porphyry, similar
to that of the original strike made by
Dan Greenwaldt on Steamboat Moun
tain."
Mr. Jennings referred to another body
of ore in the same neighborhood, which
pans Treely, but which has not yet been
assayed. Jetter and Hewitt have also
uncovered a ledge of good free-milling
ore of gold and some silver.

SUNDAY SPECIALS
Delicious  Meats,   Fruits  and  Vegetables at the Fish Market
The Prince Rupert Fish Market has
a fine line of specials today which should
tempt, everyone who enjoys an appetizing dinner on Sunday. Take the
game meat for instance. What will
satisfy the inner man better than a
juicy venison steak or roast, or one of
those old time rabbit pot pies that
mother used to make. The Fish Market
has both rabbits and venison. They have
also some fine young turkeys and chickens
as well as other fowl. To go with these
meats they have a supply of fresh vegetables, such as cauliflower, cabbage,
beats, carrots and green stuff. Then
there are all kinds of fresh fruits just
received from the orchards and vineyards. Last, not least, their eggs are
guaranteed fresh. They are not stamped,
but the personal guarantee of the Fish
Market goes with each egg.
NEW BAND ORGAN
Roller Skating Rink Has ��� New Attraction That Will Be Appreciated.
Mr.. L. J. Warren who has returned
on the Prince George Sunday last after
two weeks business trip to Vancouver and
Seattle and other cities on the coast,
has brought back with him a fine
Wurlitzer Automatic Military Band
organ which operates by preforated
paper rolls and is equal to a 10 piece
human band. This instrument consists
of outside���visible 13 brass trumpets.
13 brass piccolos, 13 wooden flagolets.
Inside 6 open basses 13 open pipes 6
stopped pipes 11 pipes in accompanied.
Bottom 5 stopped basses, 7 stopped
pipes, 10 pieces in accompanied, 1 stop
for trumpets also base and snare drum.
It has a surprising volume of tone, is
very handsome in appearance and is
especially fine for dancing and skating.
It will also prove exceedingly attractive
to the rinking business Mr. Warren had
certainly an ear for music when he
selected an instrument of this kind.
You can easily hear the sweet strains
of music in any part of the rink as it
penetrates through the moving panorama
of skaters who at one time made a
roar like Niagara. The floor has' recently been put into such shape that the
skaters now make only a buzzing like
a bee on a hot summer day.
The new band organ is now in operation and will prove a great attraction
to skaters and to beginners.
SILVER CUP REVEALS MORE
WEALTH
Winter Cabins Constructed and a Full
Crew to be Employed Throught Year
BIG RAILWAY COMBINE
Hazelton, Sept. 23.���On the Silver
Cup the number two tunnel is being
driven ahead on four feet of high grade
ore and sacked ready for shipment.
C. Blerns has secured the contract for
packing 100 tons of ore and proposes to
keep his pack train busy on these shipments until the close of navigation.
Work on the Duchess claim of the com-
lany has disclosed a fine body of ore and
proves the Cup vein for a length of
over 300 feet with practically the whole
of the Silver Dollar claim unexplored.
Winter cabins have been constructed
and all necessary plans made for the
continuance of vigorous development
throughout the winter. It is calculated
to have the mine in shape for a phenomin-
al production next spring and summer.
Judging by the estimates placed on the
property by engineers and experienced
mining men who have recently visited
the mine it is evident the Silver Cup
mine is destined to make Ninemile
mountain and the Hazelton mining
district famous.
Rumor   of   Canadian   Pacific   and

of the two or three men at the head of
the company have been devoted of late
to an attempt at securing control of
the Grand Trunk Railway, and
perhaps the Grand Trunk Pacific, and
that a mighty consolidation is at this
monent under the consideration of Sir

days ago a gentleman from Australia sent word home advising, the
purchase of a fine tract of timber land
on Vancouver Island. French and German dealers are also looking over the
forests. There wjll be no want of purchasers but it will be hard to keep the
timber from being wasted by fires or
careless lumbermen.

TRANSPORTATION   MAN   UNDER
SURVEILLANCE
Theories of the Police���Men Who
Fled to the Hills After Doing the
Job Were Undoubtedly Well Paid
For Their Work.
Seattle, Sept. 21.���Watched night and
day by detectives, a certain transportation employe now in Seattle, is under
surveillance, suspected of having in
his possession the $57,000 in gold bullion which was stolen from the treasure
room of the steamboat Tanana, on the
Tanana river.
According to advices received here
yesterday morning the two ex-convicts,
"Badger" Oleson and "Hump" Pender-
son, are now believed to have been only
the tools of this man, who paid them
well for their trouble.
They then made for the hill country,
where they are now being pursued by
special agents and detectives in the
Kayih mountains.
These men, if captured, it is believed,
will turn state's evidence.
The transportation man suspected
was seen about six months ago talking
with a counterfeiter who is known by
the government secret service men to
have a "plant" somewhere in the Cascade mountains.
In view of the fact that the stolen
gold is of such a color that it would
be impossible to dispose of it in any
assay office in the country it ia believed that this man will turn it over
to the counterfeiters who will make it
into five, ten and twenty-dollar gold
pieces and dispose of the money here
in Seattle.
May Take Another Contract
J. W. Stewart, of Foley, Welch &
Stewart, left on the Prince Rupert
Thursday for Vancouver.. He will go
direct from there to Winnipeg, where he
will meet the other members of his firm
and with them proceed to Tete Jaune
Cache. It is believed that a contract
for another division of the Grand Trunk
Pacific will be the result of the trip.
On   the   Safe   Side

DEATH    OVER   WORRY
Farmer Who Ran Over Man Seized
With   Remorse
Colfax, Wash., Sept. 19���Albert
Schultze, a wealthy farmer living five
miles weet of Colfax, died suddenly at
his home yesterday. Schultze was
lodged in jail here Monday night and
fined $25 and costs for attempting to
drive over F. J. Zesiger, another farmer, while both were on their way
home. Schultze overtook Zesiger, who
was driving a hack, while Schultze
had a grain wagon with four abreast.
Zesiger was trampled in the dust and
hia hack broken up. Schultze is said
to have worried over the affair and
the humiliation of being lodged in jail,
until either he took poison or his worry
caused heart failure.
The coroner's jury of Colfax will
investigate the cause of his death.
Schultze admitted that he had been
drinking and had a bottle of whisky
with him when he ran over Zesiger.
He did not remember the facto about
the accident.
.Seattle, Sept. 19.���"Fighting" Bob
Evans is in Seattle today and declares
that he is a warm supporter of the plan
for a big fleet of battleships for the
Pacific.
As to the expense of a large fleet, the
admiral declared that as insurance alone
it would pay the government.
"It has been figured," said he, "that
the cost of a fleet of 100 battleships
would not exceed one-tenth of one per
cent of the property within reach of
12-inch guns on the Atlantic coast.
As proof of the insurance value of
battleships he pointed out that at the beginning of the Spanish-American war
property along the Atlantic sea coast
depreciated in value and houses exposed to the sea could not be rented at any
price.
Taking up the protection afforded
along the Pacific coast defences and
forte, the admiral characterized a fort
as a sign for a hostile fleet to steer
clear of. He said that a fort was only
useful to the country within reach of
its guns.
Even after the Panama Canal is
completed, the admiral contends, the
United States should still keep a permanent fleet on the Pacific coast. He
insists that the hazard of ships passing
through the canal during a war would
be too great to risk the entire fleet on
the Atlantic coast.
When the ancients wrote on tablets
of stone it required a crowbar to break
the news.

Pobably because of the great amount
ot tfavel thereon.
Cordova, Alaska, Sept. 21.���Copper River & Northwestern railroad today celebrated the opening of the train
service to the new town of Chitina, at
mile 136, and also the connecting of the
Fairbanks trail with the railway at
Chitina.
The remaining sixty miles of the
road are graded and rails and bridge
steels are being sent to the front to
insure completion of the road to the
Bonanza copper field on January 1.
The town of Chitina declared a holiday and welcomed a long train loaded
with building material and supplies.
With the opening of the new route
to Fairbanks, the time of winter travel
will be greatly lessened as well as its
discomfort and danger.
Nelsom, aSept. 19.���The great problem that has confronted mining industries of the interior is now declared to have been solved. That a
smelter for demonstrating the success of a new method for the reduction of low-grade zinc ores will be
established in or near Nelson, and be
in full working order before Christmas, was the statement made today
by A. Gordon French, an eminent
consulting metallurgical chemist of
Victoria.
Mr.  French has been  visiting various  silver-lead  zinc  properties  in  the
Kootenays during the past few weeks
with the result that he has been confirmed in his belief that he has worked out a method for the reduction of
the refractory ores  in  the  Kootenay,
containing a comparatively small percentage of zinc, on a commercial scale.
Mr.   French   is   representing   French's
Complex   Ore   Reduction   Co.,   which
has been organized by large capitalists
at Victoria.   He left for the coast today
and upon his return will make arrangements for the erection of a smelter at
Nelson with a capacity of four or five
tons of ore per day.   This new method
having proved successful, one or more
large smelters will be built in the Kootenays at least one of which will be located in Nelson.
"The main object of the new smelter," said Mr. French, "is the recovery of zinc in the form of the merchantable products of that metal, the
metallic zinc and the well known zinc
white. The residue containing lead
and silver, will be forwarded to the
Trail smelter and there reduced. That
my method is a success, I proved by
experiments with Kootenay ore. Since
I have come to the Kootenay and
visited the Slocan and other mills,
of which the chief values lie in silver lead ore made refractory by the
presence of zinc, I have been more
than convinced that the demonstra-
tory smelter we shall erect before the
snow comes will prove to the mine
owners in the district that a method
has been discovered for the reduction
at a reasonable cost, of the complex
ores of the Slocan and other parts of
the Kootenays."
Mr. French has been engaged in
the study of refractory ores all his
life. At an early age he learned the
rudiments of metallurgical chemistry
at Glasgow, later on going to Swansea,
the centre of the greatest lead and zinc
refineries in Great Britain. For the
great smelting company of Vivian & Son,
he there devised a method for the successful smelting of the Constantine ores of
the Island of Sardinia, which were
recognized by smelter men as presenting
the greatest difficulties that had, up to
that time, been encountered in modern
smelting. He reorganized the famous
Brokenhill mines of Australia and put
.them on a paying basis, built the first
[copper smelter in Canada at Notre
Dame, Newfoundland, and was responsible for the working of a big
smelter for the reduction of the ores
from the Bethanga mines in Victoria,
Australia. In this instance, he adopted
the same method of procedure as in
the case of the silver lead zinc ores of
the Kootenay.  At the request of Byron

They say that Love is kind.

I   have   but   seen   his   pain.
And   do   not   know.
I  have but  bared  my  heart
And felt   his   sting;
I  have but  wept  with  Love
And cannot   sing.
The   gentleness   of   Love
I   cannot   find;
Love's   only   kindness   is
That   he   is   blind.

Rushes With Her Charges Into

Wall of Fire���Movement to Present Her With Medal.
Bellingham, Sept. 19.���The parents
of the children in the Bennett school
district, three miles from the Bellingham city limits, are collecting a fund
to buy a gold medal for Miss Georgia
O'Neal, teacher of the Bennett school
who, last Monday, when the house
was hemmed in on three sides by forest
fires, led her charges to safety through
the surf  and  spray  of Puget  .Sound.
Fanned by heavy winds, the fires
swept up to the school house before
Miss O'Neil was aware of the danger.
Where the roadway had been clear a
moment before was a seething wall of
fire and the woods in every direction
were a furnace. A narrow clearing
leading to the water front alone remained open.
Sending the larger children on ahead,
Miss O'Neill hurried to the beach with
the smaller ones. The underbrush and
even the drift wood was on fire to
the very water's edge. Wading boldly
into the surf, Miss O'Neil carried the
little tote pick-a-back to some rocks
several rods from shore. Returning
again and again she moved her little
band through the water along the
beach to where a cleared space on land
enabled the children to come ashore, not
a child having been injured.
The new pastor of the First Baptist
church of this city Rev. W. H. McLeod,
B.  A.  B.  D. arrived on the steamer
"Prince Rupert" on Wednesday evening.
The Baptist people are very fortunate
in securing a man so thoroughly educated
and with such a wide experience.   Mr.
McLeod received his B. A. degree from
Acadia  College, the Baptist school of
Maritime Provinces.      He spent three
years at the Newton    Theological Institution,    Boston,   Mass.,   and     was
graduated  from  that  school  in   1901.
Mr. McLeod also took a Post Graduate
course  at  the University of  Chicago.
He was appointed to a fellowship in
this university which  is a recognition
of excellent scholarship.     He received
the degree of Bachelor of Divinity from
the University of Chicago and was presented  with the same degree as that
given by McMaster University, Toronto,
last June.
Mr. McLeod has been the pastor of
important churches in Kansas, Wisconsin, Ontario and Illinois and has had
experience in various lines of Christian
work.
The Baptist Standard, of Chicago,
speaking of Mr. McLeod said "Rev.
W. H. McLeod, late pastor of the Humboldt Park Baptist Church of Chicago,
and recently a graduate student at the
University of Chicago, has been notably active in the work of the evangelistic band. Mr. McLeod has made
a good record in Chicago."
A resolution passed by the First
Avenue Baptist Church of Hutchinson,
Kansas says.'The work of Mr. McLeod
has been almost phenomenal and absolutely unequalled for success in the
history of the church."
Mr. McLeod will preach in the morning and evening Sunday, in the building now occupied by the Baptist Church
and situated at the head of Sixth street.
The members of the church cordially
invite the citizens of Prince Rupert
to attend these services and hear their
new pastor.

Eulogies   of   Prince   Ito's   Work   In

CHANNEL AIR ROUTE
Novel   Scheme   to   Establish   Aerial
Passenger Service
Victoria, aSept. 19.���Japanese advices
state that since the annexation of Korea
was accomplished, there have been remarkable scenes at Prince Ito's grave.
Following a cablegram from Viscount
Terauchi, resident-genera! of Korea announcing the annexation, the message
was read to the spirit of his father by
the young Prince Ito. A delegation of
prominent members of the Seiyukai
party afterwards visited the tomb "to
make a report of the successful annexation of Korea."
Eulogies of Prince Ito and his work
in Korea were read to the spirits.
Gratitude is the rarest of virtues.
Because those who most eagerly accept
favors are precisely those who think
it undignified to recollect or to acknowledge them.
We might do more work for posterity
if it wasn't such slow pay.
Paris, Sept. 21.���The first line of
cross-Channel aeroplanes is, it seems, to
be established between Boulogne and
Folkestone. Such, at least, is the ambitious scheme of the Ligue Nationale
Aerienne, which it is said, has begun negotiations with the authorities of the
two channel ports to induce them to offer a big prize for the first regular aerial service. It suggests that a sum of
$10,000 be promised to the aviator who
on four successive days, or four times
within the Bame week shall have made
the voyage to and from one port or the
other with one or more passengers.
The aeroplane is to be constructed so
that it shall be capable of alighting on
the water without sinking, and of starting again without assistance. The
aviator is to start in the presence of
an official of each town, so that there
shall be no doubt as to the reality of
the performance. This is supposed to
be the most practical means of inaugurating the new service and making
it popular. THE    PKIfcNC'E    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

ORIGIN OF TETE JAUNE
Probably  Yellowhead Pass Got  Its
Name From Same Source
Many of the historic poets of the
Hudson's Bay Company in the west
will be disturbed this year through the
building of the G. T. P., which is conquering the passage of the Rocky
Mountains and the coast range. One of
the most notable of these old posts,
which was used as a base for the supply
of the posts in the interior of British
Columbia, is Jasper House, situated
on the Athabasca River and about 200
miles west of Edmonton.
Jasper House was built about 1800,
and the records of the Hudson's Bay
Company show that it was established
in the forest on the shore of a small lake
surrounded by high rocks except on the
lake side. In 1817 the factor in charge
was Jasper Hawes. It is his Christian
name which gives the name of the post,
which, however, in the early years of
its establishment was popularly called
"Rocky Mountain House," although
the post of that name was afterwards
officially established at the junction
of the north Saskatchewan River and
the Clearwater River in Alberta.
Jasper Hawes was celebrated for the
great shock of yellow hair that he wore,
and the Indian and half-breed hunters
referred to him as "Tete Jaune."

A bountiful supply of pure water is
one of the greatest assets a new town can
boast. While Fort George has never
suffered from a scarcity of aqua pura,
the fast-growing population demands
a modern and easy method of procuring this greatest necessity, says the
Fort George Tribune. No wells have
yetbeen sunk in the town, the population as a whole preferring to quaff the
sparkling and health-giving waters of
the Nechaco River, which flows past
the town. To facilitate this a large
supply tank, having a capacity of 2,500
gallons, is being placed at the intersection of Central Avenue and Hammond
street, near the bank of the Nechaco.
A 6 h.p. gasoline engine will operate a
pumping plant. Underground water
pipes will be laid to central parts of the
town and auxiliary reservoirs located
where deemed necessary.
This, by the way, is but a temporary
arrangement. The magnificent power
site acquired near the Willow River is
intended soon to furnish facilities for a
complete and modern syst-em of waterworks and sewerage and an electric
lighting system.

NEW WATER SYSTEM
Fort George Ha* a Bountiful Supply
In   Nechaco   River
A bountiful supply of pure water is
one of the greatest assets a new town can
boast. While Fort George has never
suffered from a scarcity of aqua pura,
the fast-growing population demands
a modem and easy method of procuring this greatest necessity, says the
Fort George Tribune. No wells have
yetbeen sunk in the town, the population as a whole preferring to quaff the
sparkling and health-giving waters of
the Nechaco River, which flows past
the town. To facilitate this a large
supply tank, having a capacity of 2,500
gallons, is being placed at the intersection of Central Avenue and Hammond
street, near the bank of the Nechaco.
A 6 h.p. gasoline engine will operate a
pumping plant. Underground water
pipes will be laid to central parts of the
town and auxiliary reservoirs located
where deemed necessary.
This, by the way, is but a temporary
arrangement. The magnificent power
site acquired near the Willow River is
intended soon to furnish facilities for a
complete and modem syslpm of waterworks and sewerage and an elecwic
lighting system.
Hill on Natural Resources
J. J. Hill, the aged president of the
Great Northern railway warned the
people of the United States that if
they wasted their forests, their coal,
their minerals, their water and other
natural resources, the nation would
come to poverty. His was one of the
notable speeches of the Conservation
Congress held in St. Paul.

WHAT IS   BEHIND
(Edmonton Journal)
That there is something more than
mere shortage of labor behind the G. T. P.
howl is a matter which requires but
little perspicuity to appreciate.
If all that stood between the Grand
Trunk Pacific and the accomplishment
of its designs was the lack of a few hundred or thousand railroaders to construct the mountain section it is not at
all likely that men of the calibre that
Hays and Smithers are presumed to be
would waste much time going about the
country howling about the necessity
or Oriental labor. They would simply
take a leaf from the Canadian Northern
and C. P. R. and improve the conditions under which the railroaders work.
If that was not sufficient inducement,
a raise of a few cents a day in the pay
offered would bring them.
The cry that there are not men enough
to do the work is all tommy-rot. When
the United States commenced to build
the Panama Canal it took possession
of a pestilential, fever-laden swamp,
the graveyard of the hopes, ambitions
and reputations of the alleged great
men of France, and by the application
of proper sanitary science made the
camps along the ditch healthy and
pleasant places in which to live, with the
ultimate result that there is now sufficient
labor to build the canal and more offering for the past year than has been required. The rules which applied to
Panama should apply to the Coast
section of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
and the new transcontinental has the
advantage over any other road that
ever crossed the mountains in the respect that three quarters of the cost,
whatever that may be, is guaranteed
by the government, making it a work
on which, for all practical purposes,
the usual usages of public works could
be applied.
Furthermore, the other railway enterprises in this country are not raising
any howl about shortage of labor or
the necessity of importing Orientals
and why should the Grand Trunk?
It is noticeable in this connection
that the agent of the Norwegian government in Montreal, - only the other day,
came out with the statement that he
was advising his fellow countrymen
not to come to Canada to work on the
railways, as he had ample evidence
that they were not well treated when
they got here. Considering in connectio
with this fact that some six months
ago the announcement was made that
the G. T. P. had put itself in a position
to get all the labor required by opening
employment offices in Norway, it is
easily seen that any labor shortage
which prevails is due to circumstances
over which Hays and Smithers have
absolute control and which they could
amend by merely issuing the orders.
It must be that there is something
more than the labor shortage back
of this G. T. P. howl.
It is a well known fact that President
Hays has had engineers on the ground
frcm the commencement of construction
of the Transcontinental and that he has
been protesting to Ottawa about the
excessive cost, filing his protests in detail to show where the cost is out of all
proportion to the difficulties, pointing
out the places where the specifications
have been altered to give rock prices
for loose earth excavation and all the
other grafts which have become notorious
on the part of the road.
Can it be that the stupendous cost
which has been piled up against the
Transcontinental and on which according to the agreement the G. T. P.
must pay three per cent., has frightened
Hays to such an extent that he is about
to throw the whole proposition back
on the government's hands?
If that is the case, the west will say
without hesitation "done."
