The Prince Rupert
Daily  Edition.
VOL. I, NO. 5
Prince Rupert, B.C.. Friday, May 6, 1910.
Price, Five Cents
That is What a Piece of Prince Rupert Property  Brought One
Man-Cost $35, Sold
for  $1000
An investor put $36 into Prince
Rupert real estate last May. Yesterday he sold it for $1000. ..That was
pretty easy money. The property
consisted of lots 14 and 15, block 6,
section 8. They were sold at the big
auction for $70 each, and did not have
many bidders at that. The purchaser
paid one quarter down amounting to
$35. Yesterday they were turned over
at $1000, a profit, in round figures,
of nearly 3000 per cent. The buyer
considers his purchase to be a snap,
and would not sell at a big advance..
The deal was put through by Mr.
Planitz of the B. C. Real Estate syndicate.
The Mack Realty Co., report the
sale of four lots in Section 1, blocks 5
and 7 for $7,500.
Cetriana's  First Trip
The Northern Steamship Co's steamer Cetriana arrived in Port this morning at 6 o'clock from Vancouver and
left again at 9.30 for Stewart. This is
her first trip north and her first trip
since she was overhauled and refitted
She was previously on the North Sea
run but in future she will make the
Rupert and Stewart trip from Vancouver
The Cetriana is one of the' tidiest
ships that have come into the harbor
season. She is well built and is speedy.
She left Vancouver on the 3rd and was
delayed six hours while taking on her
reserve cargo of coal. She made good
time coming up and had a good voyage,
the weather being fine-nil the way.
On her first trip the Cetriana brought
up half a dozen passengers for Prince
Rupert and several tons of freight. She
also had several passengers and freight
for Stewart. She will return to Rupert
Saturday night about midnight on her
return trip. Captain Dick is in charge
and Bert Robson is purser.
Petriana in Port
The steamer Petriana arrived in
port this morning with a full cargo
of coal and lumber. The coal is for
Prince Rupert and the lumber goes to
Stewart. She also brought up two
Easthope launches one being for service in the Skeena River in connection
with the telegraph system, and the
the other goes to Doctor Large, the
missionary at Bella Coola. While in
the Vancouver harbor, the Petriana
met with an accident which did some
damage to the wharf. On the evening
of May 2nd. she was pulling into the
Evans, Coleman dock and she came
along until Capt. Botrell got her in
position and he then rang for full
speed astern but to his amazement,
the vessel kept on going. The way she
was heading meant disaster for the
steamer Oscar, which was moored at
the wharf, and seeing that he had to
hit something, the skipper put the
helm hard-a-starboard and sent the
Petriana along at full speed. So quickly
did she answer the helm that she swung
off sharply to port, ran by the head of
the wharf on which stands No. 0
shed and just grazed by the west corner, but the anchor caught on a stringer
pile and the corner of the dock went
out with the Petriana. Under the circumstances, congratulations are in.order that so little damage was done. Two
young men stood on the wharf watching the boat and narrowly escaped
going out with the ship.
As a result of last night's meeting
there are two candidates in the field
for the mayoralty, viz,��� William Man-
son, M. P. P., and Fred Stork. Fifteen candidates will toe the line in the
aldermanic contest and the race is
now on. Eleven candidates mentioned
on  Tuesday night  have  withdrawn.
The meeting was orderly and all
the candidates were given a square
deal. The audience applauded their
favorites.and the strong planks in the
platforms. Both mayoralty candidates
were enthusiastically cheered.
As there were so many speakers
on the line, some of the candidates
who wished to have something more
to say promised to engage the hall
at a later date and fully present their
Chairman Smith opened the meeting
with the statement that this was an
adjourned meeting from Tuesday night
for the purpose of giving those nominated an opportunity of presenting
their platforms. He then called all
the nominees to come forward on the
platform. As the candidates approached
the stage the crowd wildly cheered
and applauded.
At the suggestion of Mr. W. J. McKenzie the audience was requested not
to smoke. The minutes of the last
meeting were read and adopted.
Mr. V'illium Munson, M. P. P.,
was the first one called upon. He
said he was present at the request
of the secretary, for the purpose of
answering whether or not he would
accept the nomination. He stated that
he would accept the nomination, and
if he did so, without apology to anyone.
He was in the field at the request of
the citizens and so far as he was concerned
personally would never seek the office.
He had prepared a platform as requested. There was a nother platform that
been published for several days and to
which Mr. Stork had subscribed. There
was nothing specially in that platform
which he himself would not subscribe
to, but it was not specific. Jack Beatty
could drive his team of horses through
it. A platform of that kind is very
dangerous to adopt. Mr. Manson
then read his platform and explained
it clause by clause. The platform will
be found in another column.
In conclusion, Mr. Manson said
that that was the platform upon which
he went before the people, hi reference
to his municipal experience he said
that if the citizens wanted him to assist
in the affairs, he was not going to sit
down and refuse. He served seven
years in the council of Nanaimo, three
years as alderman and four years as
Mayor, at the end of which time he
volutarily retired. He served 12 years
on the school board. He said that
as a candidate for the mayoralty, he
asked for the citizen's support upon
his record and platform. He was a
citizen and would work for the benefit
of the city.
Mr. Fred. Stork was the next speaker.
He congratulated Prince Rupert upon
its splendid growth during the past
two years. He was a pioneer of British
Columbia having come here 21 years
ago. He had helped to cut many trails
through the Province. He said he was
still doing pioneer work in so far as he
had brought out a platform upon which
was based Mr. Manson's platform.
His programme was not brought out
in haste, but was carefully considered
by himself and the aldermen running
The Empress Theatre Jammed
and Hundreds Turned Away-
Enthusiastic But Orderly���Seven
New   Candidates   in the    Field.
with him.   He still stood by that plat
form  and  so  did  his  associates.
Mr. Stork then presented his platform which has been published in these
columns before.
In addition to his platform Mr.
Stork dealt with the liquor license
question by stating that he would issue
liquor licenses to as many hotels in
Prince Rupert as can qualify under
the license act. He favored high licenses and the men who got licenses
he would see kept hotels.
According to the assessment, the city
has a borrowing capacity of $3,000,000
He would borrow *2,000,000 and spend
it judiciously upon sewers, water works,
and electric light, as soon as possible.
In conclusion he said that he did not
come before the electors because he wanted the job. He was not tied to any
clique or party. There were no strings
attached to him. If they wanted a
good square honest administration he
would give it to them. If they i^.l not
want to it then leave him at home.
Being the third nominated, Mr.
Smith came next. He said he wished to
express his gratitude for the confidence placed in him by nominating
him for the mayoralty. At the same
time he wished to decliae.
Mr. T. D. Pattullo thanked his mover
and seconder for placing his name in
nomination. He wished to retire from
the field, and in doing so retired in
favour of Mr. Stork. Hs reasons he
would give at a s ubsequent meeting.
T. Y. McKAY.
Mr. T. Y. McKay was the first
candidate called. He accepted the
nomination. He said that all knew how
he stood politically. If he was elected
to the council he would weign all
questions accordingly. He gave a talk
on socialism.
Mr. C. W. Peck wrote the Secretary
that   he   would   not   be   a   candidate,
Mr. H. Douglas was called next.
He said that he would take any plank
in all the platforms read, and carry
them out. He served the city on a
committee in Victoria. He was at present on the water committee. He would
be an independent candidate and would
and support any mayor and council
so long as they were carrying out the
wishes of the people.
Mr. W. P. Lynch was called and given
a rousing reception. He said that,
in asking to be elected to the council he
has been in the field for some time.
He said he would stay by the ticket he
went in the field with a month ago.
He went over the platform and gave
his   interpretation    of   it,   concluding
with   the   remark   that   he  considered
as specific as it could be made at this i
Mr. G. R. Naden was out of the city. |
Dr. W. P. Clayton said he accepted
the nomination and would be an independent candidate. He adopted the
Trades and Labour Council':; ;'.it-
form in its entirety. He was a strunfjer
to a great many, but all would know
before the election was over. He said,
however, that the first thing for this
city to do was to find out what position
it was in in relation to the Government
and the G. T. P. He stood with Mr.
Manson on the liquor license question.
He advocated a juvenile court with a
woman on the bench, as they knew
better how to deal with children.
Mr. Mobley sent a letter accepting
the nomination. He was out of the city
but would return about the 10th.
Dr. A. A. Mclntyre said his remarks
would be very brief. He did not believe
in pre-election promises as they are
usually broken. His platform was his
faith in Prince Rupert, which has induced him to invest his life's savings
in Prince Rupert real estate. If the city
fails, then he goes down and out. He
was independent. He had no strings
attached to him. He believed in giving
all a square deal. In conclusion he
put in a few good words for G. R. Naden,
F. H. Mobley and M. M. Stephens who
were on the ticket, but out of the city.
A great deal depends upon the men
who are elected to the council and the
people must be very careful that they
elect the very best men  in the city.
William Hildridge accepted the nomination. He thought the city should
be proud to have two such men aspiring
for the mayoralty as Mr. Manson and
Mr. Stork. He supported both platforms because he could see very little
difference between them. His special
plea was the labour question. He thought
that if a man supported a family in
Prince Rupert on $3 a day he would
have to eat a lot of beans. He stood
on the labour platform.
Mr. G. W. Arnott was the next speaker.   He said that he believed the plat-
forme of Mr. Manson, Mr. Stork and
himself were about the same.    He be-1
lieved that labour should  have every |
consideration   and   he   supported   the i
labour platform.    In reference to the |
slate he did not believe that the rulers
should be selected by a few. The people
should be free to choose their own renre-
sentatives.   He promised that, if he was
elected he would watch that no graft
crept in.
Dr. Quinlan said that in accepting
the nomination he wished to state he
upheld Mr. Manson. He was like
Mr. Hildn'dge, he believed in Mr.
Stork's platform and then some, and
that some was Mr. Manson's platform.
Thomas Dunn thanked the people
heartily for their nomination, but if
he thought his business would allow
him to occupy any office, it would
not be for alderman that he would
run, but for mayor. He said he knew
what it was to be a mayor or alderman
of a new town. If a mayor did his duty
he would need to spend 24 hours a
day at the work. He supported Mr.
Stork for mayor because he came out
early and presented his platform
in a manly way Then he referred to
the Optimist nominating Mr. Kergin, an
outsider for mayor some six months
ago. He was very much opposed
to Mr. Manson's candidature.   He was
Fifteen   Aldermen    Will    Face   the
Electors  on   a   Number   of
Different Platforms
���Good  Choice
The electors of the new city will
have a good lot of men to pick from
en the first civic ballot. There will
be a two-man contest for the mayoralty, but some fifteen prominent citizens will line up on the aldermanic
list. They are nearly all good business
men. A few belong to the professional
or labor class, and they are eredable
representatives. Without doubt the
result will be a good looking council
on paper, ancl one from which good
work will be forthcoming.
. It is quite evident that the public
meeting has added some first class
men to the list of candidates and the
electors will not make a mistake in
selecting any of them on the basis of
personality and ability.
The Optimist is a firm believer in
publicity and is confident that the
men selected will lie six desirable aldermen. The candidates in the field are:
For Mayor,
William Manson
Alfred, Stork
For  Alderman
G. W. Arnott
A. R. Barrow
H. H. Clark
Dr. Clayton
J. H. Douglas
John H. Hilditch
W. P. Lynch
F. H. Mobley,
G. W. Morrow ,
D. W. Mcrrisey,
T.  Y.  McKay
.    Dr. A. A. Mclntyre
G. R. Naden
T. D. Pattullo
Dr. Quinlan
V. W. Smith,
M.  M. Stephens
Manson Committee Rooms
William Manson has secured committee rooms in Dr. A. A. Mclntyre's
block on End Avenue, where committee
meetings will be held nightly. Voters
are welcome to go there and register
and all candidates for the council
are invityd to make that their head-
quartei$. The public is welcome to
drop in at leisure.

Larger Water Mains
II. Douglas, on behalf of the water
committee, sent a letter to the secretary of last night's public meeting,
asking that Ihe committee be authorized to purchase pipe to enlarge the
mains from Fulton to 8th street. This
is the congested district and the present pipe is only a two inch one, and
of no service in case of fire. Mr.
Douglas addressed the meeting along
the above lines and Mr. Manson,
who had suggested the plan to the
water committee, moved that the request be granted and the work gone
on with at once. The motion was
seconded and carried.
The committee on the electric light
proposition are opening the tenders
for the proposed new plant. There
were some 20 or more tenders received
from all parts of America. The committee have a big job ahead of them and so
far have confined their labors to merely
opening the communications to see
if the certified cheques are enclosed.

The Prince Rupert Optimist
Daily Edition
Friday, May 5
The Manson platform, published in this newspaper, so completely overshadows the proposition of Mr. Stork and his associates that electors who are
influenced by policy rather than by party will doubtless have no hesitancy in
recognizing it as a big factor in the future government of this city.
When tlie Stork platform came out The Optimfst criticised the vagueness of
practically every plank in it. There may be a meaning behind it; but until that
is shown, it appears mostly as a string of platitudes to catch votes with now,
and juggle with later. There is no such indeliniteness with the Manson policy.
Anyone reading it knows where he stands, and even though in some points some
electors may differ from it in opinion, they cannot but admit its frankness and
business-like form. For instance, compare Clause 5 in the two platforms. Each
deals with the question of public utilities. The one may mean anything or nothing; the other is clearly defined and shows a plan of action. The one completely
absorbs the other, and shows how it is proposed to work it out. There is no
room for hedging or shuffling on the Manson plank.
The liquor question, which the Stork platform sloughs, is fearlessly dealt with
by Manson. This question has been one of the liveliest issues in Rupert civic
affairs, and the Optimist has advocated, along with many public citizens, a
referendum of this question to the electors. This was one of the clauses submitted in the proposed City Charter which came to grief. Mr. Stork at that time
was a member of the Charter Committee, along with two other members of his
ticket, and they all approved of it.   They shirked the question in their platform.
It must be admitted that Mr. Manson has embodied all the good points of
the Stork platform, but he has done more. He has made them solid boards instead of a veneer which may be twisted into something very different later.
The Optimist may differ with Mr. Manson on some minor points, and would
like to see one or two more planks added to the stage; but, taken as it is, this
paper is willing to support such a policy.    It is one which invites confidence.
Probably one of the best features of the Manson platform is the man upon
it. The citizens know him to be honest, straightforward and sincere. What he
advocates he stands by. If he is elected, the electors know just what they will
get in the way of a civic policy.

The Prince Rupert papers report
that our member, Mr. Wm. M anson
has returned to Prince Rupert after
spending several months in Victoria on
parlimentary business. It is quite evident from these reports that our member has not overlooked the Quuen Charlotte Islands, and we feel that our natural resources are worthy of his every
consideration.. The vast area of coal
and farm lands that have been recently
acquired are providing such a revenue
for our government that there can be
no further excuse for not extending
to the Islands all the assistance they
Over thirty thousand acres of coal
land and fully twenty thousand of
farm land have been located within the
past three months, and it is certain that
the coming season will see considerable
development in the coal fields on Graham Island. Two, if not three, diamond
drills will be in operation within a
radius of ten miles from Queen Charlotte City, and while the Government
Government has so far assisted in
building trails,, the time has come when
we must have wagon roads to get heavy
machinery to the coal fields.
We are informed that Mr. R. 0.
Jennings has been appointed general
road inspector for the district, and it
is to be hoped and expected that he
will give this matter his prompt attention
on his arrival.

J. YOUNG. Manager
Jobber of High-grade Havana Cigars
Tobaccos Wholesale and Retail
The bank of British North America
was formerly opened for business yesterday in pioneer style. The new building on Fulton Street, south of 3rd
Avenue, is not yet completed, but Mr.
Ernest Stonham was not content to
wait. He got a desk in one of the rear
rooms and put up a bed spring for a
teller's cage, and there he is doing
business and will continue thus until
the main office is completed in about
a  week.
Mr. Stonham came direct from Montreal to open this branch. He -vent
a day or two in Vancouver anu then
came here, bringing Mr. A. W. McLeod
from Vancouver with him, who will
act as teller and accountant. Mr.
Stonham is not a novice in pioneer
banking in Western Canada. He
has been in Rossland, Ashcroft and
Kaslo. He has been stationed in Victoria three times and he was also in
San Fransisco during the  earthquake.
When he received notice to come to
Frince Rupert he was more than
pleased and his greatest expectations
have been realized since his arrival
on Monday night. He expressed himself to the Optimist as delighted with the
City and with the people, who have
received him very cordially.
Mr Stonham was only sent here
temporarily and expects that a permanent manager will be appointed about
the 1st August. When that time comes
he feels that he will regret to leave here,
as he likes this City and would like to
remain and see it grow.
Although the bank of B. N. A., has
just opened, the manager states that
he has received considerable business,
and he looks for a rapid increase and
the staff will be increased as required.
The bank building is well located,
and is substantially built, and when
it is completed it will be one of the
finest in the City. Provision has been
made for two bedrooms at the rear,
where the members of the staff will
sleep. These quarters may be enlarged
in the near future as the staff increases.
The Bank of British North America
is the fourth to open here and they will
no doubt receive a large share of the
present, as well as the future, business.

representative to Parliament and that
was enough.
Mr. H. H. Clarke said he was nominated with Mr. Stork a month ago and
he was still there and would stick to
it until the 19th May. He would not
ask anyone for a vote with any promise.
If the people wanted him they could '���
elect him. If not leave him at home.
He supported the labour platform as j
it is.
Mr D. W. Morrisey said he had been
approached by citizens to be a candidate,
for which he heartily thanked them.
If he was elected he would do his best
to serve the city. He came here three
years ago and started in with pick an
shovel. He would support the laboring man. He supported Mr. Manson and
his platform and in addition he read
some of this private promises and
Mr. A. R. Barrow was out of the city.
Mr. John A. Kirkpatrick was not
present, but sent a letter declining
to be a candidate.
Vernon W. Smith accepted the
nomination. He never talked much,
but he tried to do things honestly and
conscientiously. He heartily concurred
with Mr. Manson's platform and he
hopes that if he is elected to the council
Mr. Manson is elected mayor. He
siiid it was a great advantage to have a
member of the government as mayor
of the city at the present time. In
reference to the license question he
believed the referendum should be
taken but he would work for a license
J.  Y.  Rochester was not present.
Dr. H. E. Tremayne sent a letter
regretting that he could not stand for
election to the council.
T. D. Pattullo accepted the nomination as a candidate for the council,
with pleasure. He then read the platform upon which he would run. It
included waterworks, sewers, electric
light, roads, walks fire department,
publicity of the city, the abolition of
thieves thugs, etc Many other points
were included, most of which were in
Mr. Manson's and Mr. Stork's platforms. He took up the union platform
and said he could not adopt it in its
entirety, he would not adopt the
typographers union label clause. He
would engage the hall at a later date
and speak further on the question.
J. F. Macdonald regretted to say
that he was not in a position to accept
any nomination. J. E. Merry field
sent a letter declining the nomination
and Mr. McLennan did likewise.
G. W. Morrow said that as the hour
was late he would detain them a very
short time. He should be known to
everyone who has been here any length
of time. He has been slandered in
business, socially and every other way
right up to the hilt. He was still here
however, and he would remain here for
the balance of his days. He had been
criticised unjustly, and' up' to. the
present he, was glad to say he was
big enough to ignore it. He is associated
in many enterprises in the city. He
has a few dollars to invest and he invests it where it will do the most good.
He had been asked by both sides to
stand for the council. He only decided
to stand at 5 o'clock to night He was
now in the field and would support
Mr. Manson's platform. It was a sound,
concrete platform. Mr. Manson states
emphatically what he will do; the other
platform does not do that. As to the
liquor license plank, he was in favor
of it. He had money unvested in the
hotel business here. Yet, he said, the
people had a right to vote on it. If
they wanted licenses they should have
them, and he favoured not only hotels
licenses, but also first class retaurants.
He thanked his mover and seconder
for his nomination. If he s elected
he will do his duty faithfully and
honorably. He had all faith in this
city. Every dollar he had was invested
in Northern British Columbia. He had
his family here. As to ihe union platform, he supported it entirely.    Give
the workmen good wages and they can
spend more money.
For five years he had charge of the
Indians on the Pacific Coast and he
left his record to Bishop Du Vernet, or
any other clergyman in this district. He
said it was all right to make senseless
charges and to slander a man, hut if
there was anyone present who had anything to say let them come onto the
platform and make their charge. This
was the place. Mr. Morrow then took
up the charge in the Empire, that he
interfered in the awarding of a contract
in connection with the hospital. This
he denied and proved it to be false
by other members of the hospital
board. In conclusion he said he would
transact the city's business in the same
thorough manner that he did his own.
Mr. McMillan sent a letter declining
the  nomination
Mr. F. W. Hart declined to allow
his name to go before the people for
Mr. Pattullo took occasion to explain his own and Mr. Manson's
attitude on the hospital foundation
contract question. So far as the editorial in the Empire was concerned it
was not in accord with the facts and it
was also highly libelous. In reference
to himself he said that he voted against
the carpenters getting an eight hour
day, because the contract which would
effect the men working on the foundation was already awarded.
A number of questions were asked
some of the candidates, and the meeting
was closed with the national anthem.

""THE germ of both  Life  and
*��� Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty ancl a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.

the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
