I London,  May  11,���     Queen  Alexandra   sends   the   following   message
fto the British nation:���"Fom the depth
sof my poor broken heart I wish to express to the whole nation my deepfelt
���thanks   for  their   touching   sympathy

give us his divine help to bear this
heaviest of crosses, which he has seen
fit to lay upon us.   'His Will be done.'
Give   him  thought   in   your   prayers,
which  will  comfort   and  support   me
in all that I have got to go through.
Let me take this opportunity to express
heartfelt thanks for  all  the touching
letters and tokens of sympathy which I
have received from  all  classes,  high,
low, rich and poor.    They are so numerous   that   I   fear   it   is   impossible
for me to answer all of them individually.   I confide my son to your care

political situation is likely to resume an
acute stage after a brief period. A
general election is probable in the late
summer. Changes are suggested in the
coronation oath to placate catholics..
BRANCH PAY OFFICE.
In a week or two, Foley, Welch &
Stewart will open a branch pay office
at Hazelton for the accomodation of
their men who are working on the contract in the vicinity of that town.
This move has been found necessary
on account of the great expense and inconvenience to the men in coming down
here, a distance of 100 miles or more,
in order to cash their time checks
The head office will remain in Rupert,
however���everything will pass through
here. The branch is only to accomodate
the men. A branch of the Union Bank
will also be established at Hazelton
to handle this business as well as the
local business.
PRINCE    RUPERT    MERCHANTS
Are   Securing    All    the   Trade   of
Northern British Columbia.
King George's  Health.
London, May 12,���It is feared the
| new King's health may give way.
j He  sleeps  only  four   hours  a  night.
There is-public anxiety concerning Queen
j Alexandra's health, owing to fervent
j assurances from the doctors that there
j is nothing wrong.   Parliament received
King George's first message to-day. The
Rupert. The merchants, all the way
from Port Essington and Kitselas to
Hazelton are right with Prince Rupert
and are doing all they can for this town.
They are a fine bunch of men to trade
with, and they are all doing a good
business.
Mr. Piercy stated to the Optimist
that when the railway gets running, or
even before, the entire business of the
river towns will come here. The south
will be cut off entirely.
In speaking of the mining camps,
Mr. Piercy said that they were filling
up rapidly. The people are just beginning to get started to work now, and of
course they cannot tell very much about
it yet, but the prospects are very bright-
all are enthusiastic. The snow was
practically all gone when he came down,
and the remainder was going fast and
will have disappeared by now, except of
course in the mountains.. The weather
at Hazelton was delightful and had been
for sometime previous.
Asked about the trade between here
and Stewart, Mr. Piercy said that it
was increasing rapidly���not a boat goes
up that does not carry many tons of
merchandise from Prince Rupert. The
fact of the matter is, that all this north
country is realizing they have to buy
their supplies from Prince Rupert in
order to keep up with business, or do
business at all. It takes nearly two weeks
or more longer to send to the south
for supplies. This town will have the
north trade corralled before the railway gets started. From then on it will
only be increasing.
The Optimist asked Mr. Piercy if
his firm had made any preparations
yet for erecting a larger warehouse. He
replied that they have the proprty
ready at the rear of their present premises, but have been, and will be for
the next two weeks, too busy to even
think of plans. They hope, in a short
time, to get the new building, under
way.
LET CONTRACTS AGAIN
Hospital Committee Awarded Excavating Job to Third Party.
A special meeting of the Hospital
Board was held yesterday afternoon,
to consider the refusal of the contractors to go ahead with their contracts
on the excavation and super-structure
of the hospital. So far as the excavation
is concerned, W. H. Mitchell & Co.,
sent a special letter to the board offering to do the work at 80 cents for earth;
$2.25 for rock and $9.00 for concrete,
with a discount of 5 per cent, on the
total. This was accepted and it is expected that Mitchell & Co., will proceed
at once with the work.
Shockley & Co., refused to go ahead
with their contract on the super-structure
although they sent a marked cheque for
$700. The board deferred taking action
until the next meeting which will be
held in the court house to-morrow afternoon.
Mr. Hildritch, a labor candidate for
aldermanic honours, was present on
behalf of the labor men and asked the
board to consider.when awarding contracts for the hospital, to insist on
good wages for skilled labour.
Those present were President Kirkpatrick, Messrs. Manson, Morrow, Carss
Stewart, Pattullo and secretary A.
Cuthbert.
man nearer the stature in which God
made him. The noblest thinking is
away from the crowd. A brave soil will
welcome solitude, not shirk it ��� Canadian Colliers.
Prince Rupert Stock Exchange
The first annual meeting of the Prince
Rupert Stock Exchange was held last
evening, when the following officers
were elected:
President Wm. Manson, M.P.P.
Vice-President... V.    W.   Smith
Vice  President... .A.  G.   Forster
Sec-Treasurer Frank  S.   Evans
Directors���W. J. Alder, Wm. Ward,
E. K. Strathy, G. D. Full, and J. Lorne
McLaren.
The board have adopted an agressive
policy and will prove to be an active
organization of benefit to th e st
nterests in the city.
SEVEN REASONS
WHY   MANSON    SHOULD    BE
ELECTED.
BECAUSE he has a better knowledge of
Prince Rupert's civic affairs
than anyone else.
BECAUSE his honesty and integity is
above reproach.
BECAUSE he thoroughly understands
municipal law and systemitiz-
ing municipal work.
BECAUSE financiers to whom Prince Rupert must go for heavy loans
demand a big, clean man who
has had experience in handling public funds.
BECAUSE he knows where to start and
how to start organizing the
civic administration.
BECAUSE he has the confidence of the
Provincial Government, with
whom the city will have considerable important business
transactions within the present year.
BECAUSE his policy is straightforward,
good business and allows no
room for juggling.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Development company are issuing statements for
principal and interest on the second
payment of the lots sold at the sale.
The first batch of notices arrived on the
last mail.
RIVER FREIGHT CROWDED
Traffic From Prince Rupert to River
Ports  Is Piled Up.
Solitude  Is Good Company.
A beggar of the city streets, a drinker
of heel taps, a smoker of cast cigar butts,
being brought up in the police court for
vagrancy, was asked why he didn't go
west, where he could earn an honest
living on the land, and hold up his
head among men. The chicken hearted
fellow said that he was afraid of being
lonesome. Here is the place to say something fine of those vast healing spaces,
the prairies, but we forebear. What we
do urge is that the world would be
better if more men made friends with
lonesomeness. Every flower of the field
stands alone. When a man is busy at
work he is alone, but not unhappy, for
his work is his good friend.. Solitude is
the best of Company, for it can be filled
with thoughts���not narrow, discontented thoughts, which cirrose the mind,
but broad far thoughts    which   lift a
ONLY  THREE MORE TRIPS.
Steamer   Rupert   City   Will   Leave
Northern  Route  Soon.
Captain D. McKenzie of the .Str.
Rupert City when seen by the Optimist,
this morning, stated that the first he
had heard of his brother, Capt. S. F.
McKenzie being offered the post of por.
captain for the G. T. P., was the
dispatch in last night's Optimist. He
said that his brother would not be the
port captain. The firm of McKenzie
Bros., has been dissolved and the
dissolution will go into effect on June
1st. They have sold their entire fleet,
and they will not run on this route any
longer. The Rupert City is only under
charter to them and that charter only
expires in December, although they
have an option to retain her if needed.
She will only make three more trips north
as a passenger boat, but she may be
dismantled and continued as a freighter.
Time will tell.
As for himself he said he had not been
approached by the G. T. P. officials
with any offers���he would continue in
charge of the Rupert City. His brother
would remain with the Grand Trunk
Pacific for 12 months, for business purposes, but he has not entered their
employ.
Just what their future plans will be
has not been decided. They will be
free to do as they please and may operate
a fleet on some other route.

In spite of the fact that a full boat
load of freight is waiting at the docks
to  be  conveyed  to  river  points,   the
steamer Hazelton cleared this morning
without a pound on board.  She went to
Essington, where a big pile of freight
has been waiting for weeks to go up
river.    The  Hazelton  loads there today, and   that   will   relieve   the situation  there   a   little.     There is enough
local freight  now  to  keep  two  boats
running steadily.  Mr. Rogers, of Rogers
& Black, who represents the Hudson's
Bay   Company   boats   here,   told   the
Optimist this morning that it was surprising the  way in  which the people
along the Skeena River are patronizing
Prince  Rupert.      They are this year
realising that Prince Rupert is the real
source of supply.   They get their goods
from here nearly two weeks ahead of
goods coming from the south.      Last
year this was not the general idea, but
now the local freight business is increasing every day.    The delay of the Inlander in the south has tied things up
here and the Hazelton and the othir
river boats are working over time.
The goods sent up from here are dry
goods, groceries, meats, fruits, hardware, stoves and everything the people
want. Mr. Black predicts a wonderful
increase in business here for the wholesale
men this year.,
MARINE
The Henriette cleared for the islam'a
at 3 a.m.,
The Humboldt was expected to arri\ e
this afternoon from the south.
The steamer Hazelton arrived from
Hazelton about 9 o'clock last night.
The steamer Amur got in about 7.30
from the Islands and cleared again soon
afterward.
The Princess Royal arrived from Skagway shortly after midnight and cleared
for the south early this morning.
'��� The Cetriana will arrive here at
noon on Friday on her way to Stewart.
This is the second trip for this boat and
she will be a popular one.
The Rupert City arrived last night
at 9 o'clock from the South and brought
one of the largest crowds that have come
up this season. She had 164 steerage
and 40 first class passengers. Most of the
steerage men were for Foley, Welch
and Stewart, and they will be drafted
up the river t once.
POLICE COURT
Mr. G. H. Munroe had to appear in
court this morning and defend his dog,
which, it was claimed, had bitten a little
girl on Monday. The child which was
bitten, and a friend, told different stories: one claimed she went to pat the dog,
and the other that she fell down the
on top of the dog. The case will be settled
this afternoon
PERSONAL
H. Ward and Mrs. Ward left last
night for Stewart where Mr. Ward
will look around for a place to locate,
or for investments.
A. L. Evitt, of Vancouver, brother
of C. V. Evitt, in S. Harrison & Co's
office, arrived in the city last night and
he will likely go into the real estate
business   here. THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

The Prince Rupert Optimist
Daily Edition. <hs^^^o Thursday, May 12
MANSON CAN MAKE GOOD.
The arguments againut the election of William Manson for Mayor have, degenerated into an illogical protest against the Victoria Government. As the
public doubtless knows, The Optimist has been a fearless and frank critic of the
legislation predominated by the Hon. Attorney General; but it has yet to see
where Mr. Manson is in any way responsible for Bowser legislation. The Optimist knows that Mr. Manson fought every inch of ground against the cabinet
on the Prince Rupert charter. He fought many another battle in the interests
of this city. He worked night and day, and no one who has not seen a busy
member realizes the diversified interests and demands upon the time of a representative of the Legislature.   The editor The Optimist personally saw Mr. Maiv
day of May 1910, at 12 o'clock noon,
for the purpose of electing persons to
represent them as a board of trustees
for the city of Prince Rupert Municipal
School District:
The mode of nomination of candidates
shall be as follows;
The candidates shall be nominated in
writing, the writing shall be subscribed
by two voters of the municipality as
proposer and seconder, and shall be
delivered to the Returning Officer at
any time between the date of the notice
and 2 o'clock, p. m., of the day of
nomination���the 16th day of May��� and
in the event of a poll being necessary,
at work   saw him delving into private bills, drafting amendments and look-  such Po11 wil1 be opened on the 19th day
ing up information long after the other boys had gone off to dinner and the
pleasures of Mammon. No one but one who had the real interests of Prince
Rupert at heart would have done it.   Mr. Manson was one man in a thousand.
It was just such work as this that saved the city from the Northern B. C.
Telephone Company, from the B. C. Mainland Industrial Company's grip, and
from numerous other attempts to get private franchises in the city. This work
was done from a sense of duty, and Mr. Manson as Mayor will pe/form his duties
as chief magistrate just as thoroughly and conscientiously. Provincial politics
do not enter into any portion of the present campaign. The Province is not
interested, and there is absolutely no connection between the two offices, except
so far as the city has business dealings with the Province, and that is just where
Mr. Manson can give the city better results than any man in Prince Rupert. He
has the data and understanding of every transaction between the corporation
and the Province, and also the confidence of the Government.
If there are those who will insist that provincial politics are a factor, then
they should see the logic of their own suggestion.   If the Provincial Government!
want Manson, then there would not be much hope of getting any consideration
if we sent them the president of the Liberal Association.    There is more gained
by syrup than with vinegar.
But it is not a question of party politics, but rather a kuowledge of what we
need and how to get it.    Manson knows.
PRINCE RUPERT ABROAD.
What    Fred    C.  Salter    Thinks
This Western City.
of
II
Fred.   C.   Salter,   European   Traffic
Manager of the Grand Trunk System,
gave   the   London   Saturday   Mail   an
interview on Canadian affairs.   Speak-
of  Prince  Rupert,   he  said:     "Prince
Rupert  is  growing  at  a  rate  that  is
exceeding all  anticipations.     It  is already  a  place  of importance,  and  in
the near future it will be a large city,
known the world over, when the Grand
Trunk   Pacific   Railway   is   completed.
There are few harbours in the world
that can equal it for size, security and
natural beauty.   The natural resources
that  are  tributary  to   Prince  Rupert,
both by sea and land, ensure for it a
great   business  future,   and   with   the
opening of the  Grand  Trunk  Pacific
Railway   it   will   become   one   of   the
principal tourist centres of the world.
The opening of the Panama Canal, five
years hence will revolutionise the shipping of the Pacific, and in the readjustment of transportation  that  will take
place, Prince Rupert will be an important strategic feature..    Its comparative
nearness to the Orient, Alaska and the
Vukon, as compared with other Pacific
seaports of North America, give it a
considerable  advantage  to start  with,
and this,    added to the    excellence of
its harbour, the salubrity of its. climate,
and the fact that it is the Pacific terminus of an almost level transcontinental
railway, running entirely through Canada,   will  in   due  course  make  Prince
Rupert   one   of   the   great   maritime
cities of the world.   When I was there
in January, the weather was very enjoyable,   something  like  the   weather   we
are having in London this Easter, and
there was no rain.   Prince Rupert and
the beautiful  approach  to  it  by  sen,
sailing   in  sheltered   waters  along  the
densely   wooded   coast,   among  islands
that are almost fairy like, is a memory
that must long linger  with  travellers
who are fortunate enough to make the
journey.
Laurier  Is Coming.
Ottawa, May 11,���Sir Wilfrid Laurier has definitely decided to visit
Western Canada early in July. He will
be away until probably September,
and will address meetings at Fort
William, Brandon, Yorkton, Saskatoon, Regina, Weyburn, Moose Jaw,
Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Victoria and Prince Rupert.
He will be accompanied by Mr. E.
M. MacDonald, M. P. for Pictou, N.
S. Mr. Fielding may be able to accompany the Premier, but this is doubtful at present, as the Minister of Finance is leaving for London in a few
days where he will join the British
members of the West India Trade
Commission and assist them in drawing up their fin?! report. He will also
lock after the conversion of the 4,000,000
government loan.

Insurance Adjusted.
The insurance adjusters have completed their labors and it was found
that the loss was not nearly so heavy
as first expected, and nothing like so
bad as the outside papers had it. The
total loss is not over $10,000 and there
was $5,000 insurance, divided between
five companies in $1,000 policies. The
companies affected were: ��� Michigan
Commercial, Canadian, Rochester-German, North Coast and Washington.

Terminal Yards at  North Vancouver.
It has been reported that the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway has purchased
block 266 in North Vancouver with
the intention of ultimately using the
property for terminal yards. The
block fronts on the northern shore
of the inlet, a short distance to the
west of the Indian reserve and is
partly cleared. It contains approximately 200 acres, and this area could be
largely increased by the filling in of
the tideflats which front upon the
block. The land is practically level
forming an enormous flat at the present
end of the Capilano carline.
That the Grand Trunk Pacific will
also obtain a block of waterfrontage
on the southern shore of Burrard
Inlet within the next week or ten
days is declared to be almost a certainty by those who are following the
moves made by that company to obtain wharfage facilities for its steamers which are now on their way from
Vancouver from England.. It is declared that before Mr. E. J. Chamberlain, general manager of the system,
leaves Vancouver for the east, he will
have closed a deal for the necessary-
property.
It is learned that a number of properties have been submitted to the
officials of the railway company and
by them placed before Mr. Chamberlain, who on his return from Seattle
next week will finally determine what
action the railway will take. The
value of some of the properties offered the company is said to be between $500,000 and $600,000.
The Grand Trunk Pacific has obtained wharfage facilities at Seattle
and Victoria, but for some reason it
secured no waterfrontage in Vancouver where values have been advancing
far more rapidly that any other port
on the coast. Now that its steamers are en route to Vancouver to enter
the coasting service to Prince Rupert,
the company is displaying more interest in acquiring a suitable site for
wharves and warehouses at Vancouver.

Reserve Put on Crown Land.
The provincial government has decided to put a reserve on all the districts
into which surveyors have gone, or will
go, hereafter. Last week's B. C. Gazette
contains notice of the reserve, which
embraces several thousand acres, and
is estimated to be 75 or 80 per cent of
the unstaked crown lands in the Province.
Hon. Price Ellison, minister of lands,
stated that the reserve was being
put on in the interests of the general public and to enable the department to give a better administration
on the land laws. This reserve would
enable the surveyors to work freely
and in a clear field, their reports would
be made, and when the government
considered the time ripe to offer the
lands for sale, the reserve would be
taken   off.
In the past there has been a lot of
staking done just ahead of the surveyors, whole sections being staked out
by some speculators in the names of
scores of individuals, and this has
caused interminable confusion and extra work in the lands office.
"We want to get in the pre-emptor,
the man who is going to help build up
the country, and to discourage the
speculator," said  Mr. Ellison.
Hitherto there have been twoprices
for land, $5 an acre for first class and
$2.50 for second class. A great deal
of first-class has been bought at the
second-class price, and to prevent this
a minimum price of 95 is to be put on.
Looking For  Her Son.
Mrs. Delia Gibbs is still searching
for her lost son Charles John Gihbs
for whom a legacy is waiting. The young
man declared his intention of coming
to Prince Rupert some months ago and
then disappeared. His mother is in
Santa Barbara, at 114 W. Cota Street.

200-foot Tunnel   Completed.
Frank Brown who had the contract
for driving 200 feet of tunnel on the
Silver Cup mine, about ten miles from
Hazelton,  has completed  the  work.
Mr. Brown has been engaged as
general foreman and placed in charge
of operations at the mine and will
return at once to the property and continue work on company account. The
present tunnel, now in 200 feet, with
250 feet of depth below the surface,
will be continued indefinitely. In about
a month the force will be augmented
largely, as new and permanent camps
are to be built about 500 feet below the
tent now used for shelter, and where
there is plenty of wood available.. As
announced previously by the manager
Mr. J. D. Campbell, another tunnel will
i be started as soon as the weather will
permit, to be 200 feet, vertically, lower
than the one now driving.
Although neither Campbell nor Brown
could be induced to talk for publication,
there  is  a  notice  posted  in  the local
government office of intention to apply
for water privileges on  Salmon creek,
which flows past the Silver Cup group
at the foot of the mountain.   The announced   purpose   is  for  water  for a
concentrator.   This follows in line with
what   has   been   generally   understood
from the talk of the miners coming down
from  the  hill  in  the last few months
that   a   great   body   of   comparatively
low   grade  ore   has   been  encountered
in addition to the high grade paystreak,
which  has  been  followed  continuously
since   work   was   commenced,   with   a
varying width of from 18 inches to 2
i feet  wide.     What  samples have  been
brought to town  show this paystreak
] to be nothing short of solid mineral.-
[ Rich  as it  is this would not make a
! great  mine,   but  with  large  bodies of
I concentrating ore in addition a permanent camp of importance can safely be
| predicted for Nine Mile mountain.
Nothing is as yet indicated as to
the commencement of work on the Sunrise group of four claims on which
the syndicate has made the first
payment. This property is separated
from the Silver Cup by the Barber
group, now under bond to outside
pelple.���Omineca Herald.
E. J. Haughton, superintendent of the
Pacific Coast wireless service is in the
city making final arrangements for the
opening of the service here. He expects
that messages will be received and
delivered within a week's time. He is
to-day looking after the laying of the
submarine cable from Digby island.
The hospital board will meet this
afternoon for the purpose of getting
new tenders for the hospital. The
contractors on the excavation and the
super-structure have both refused to
sign contracts after they had been awarded the job. They feared that they tendered too low..

* 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. ~Lite
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.

Friendship of Dick and Tat.
Canadidn Colliers.
Captain Robert Garnet Tatlow, the
best Minister of Finance and the poorest Minister of Agriculture British
Columbia ever had, is dead. Some day
the stormy love which subsisted between
"Dick" and "Tat" will be theme for
a sort story. Premier McBride and
Tatlow quarreled in private, but fought
together in the open. Whenever Dick and
Tat had a tiff Tat would resign. Then
Tat would disappear for twenty four
hours, after which he would return meek
in spirit and sore in the head. Dick
must have a desk full of his chum Tat's
resignations. Last October Dick gave
Tat fifteen minutes to accept or reject
his railway agreement with Mackenzie
and Mann. Tat didn't like the bargain, and, as was his habit when displeased, resigned. This time the resignation stuck. Much to his surprise,
Tat found himself out for keeps.
Not wishing, however, to have Tat for
a political enemy, Dick appealed to
his chivalry and affection. He did it in
eight words, with the right inflection:
"Well, Tat, you won't do me any harm':"
"No, Dick, I won't." Hands were clasped and Tat's word was passed. Hence
no Tat on the platform to denounce
Dick's railway policy. Dick had intended to put Tat at the head of some sort
of commission to administer the government's railway policy���which would
have been a good stroke; of policy and
would have created the utmost public
confidence���but that great rearranger,
Death, stepped in and changed the plans.
They have been on a trip to Port Simpson and vicinity looking for investments.

Newspaper Limitations.
The Rev. James McLeod, a Presbyterian minister, of Pasadena, Calif.,
undertook to edit, for one day, the
Pasadena Star. At the end of the day,
he said:
"My time is now almost up as I
pen this last line; my hand is almost
paralyzed; my brain is befuddled, and
I am free to confess that I am right glad
to vacate this holy spot. Such rush
and riot and disarray! Such a jumble and
potpourri! It strikes me as a daily effort
to bring order out of chaos, and to do
it lightening quick. lam reminded of the
memorable words:
" 'The earth was without form and
void, and darkness was on the face of
the deep. And the spirit moved upon
the face of the waters' "
"Never shall I criticise newspaper men
more. I shall pray for them. They shall
have my heart's forbearance, henceforth
and forever, the hardest worked, shortest lived, brainworkers on this watery
old world of ours."
While this confession is flattering
to the pride of journalists, it is quite
likely   that   the   reverend   gentleman
was carried to extremes by the novelty
of his experience. In a few days he would
have discovered that there is routine
and method in newspaper work, as in
all others, and that everything on a newspaper is not done in a headlong rush.
Nor is there any reason why he should
cease to criticise the papers; what he
ought to learn from practical experience
is to remember their limitations. The
book, the pamphlet, the Parliamentary
debate, the public meeting, can still
give us something that we cannot find
in the newspaper and unreasonable
criticism of the newspaper are equally to
be avoided.���Toronto Star.
