FOUR CANDIDATES PROPOSED ��J3Xi5fiSSS;
CROWDED CITIZENS'  MEETING   IN   EMPRESS THEATRE SUGGEST
MANY NEW CANDIDATES
Stork Supporters Had Half the Meeting���Other Names Well Received ���
V.   W.   Smith   was  Chairman
the Commons and the House of Lords.
G.T.P. GENERAL SECRETARY
Four candidates for mayor, and
twenty-seven candidates for the council
were chosen at the public meeting
held in the Empress Theatre last
night. The theatre was crowded to
the doors in response to the call for
a citizen's meeting. It was very plain
from the beginning that Fred. Stork's
friends were out in force with the intention of forcing him, if possible, upon
the meeting.
After the moving pictures, V. W. Smith
was elected to the chair, and C. V.
Bennett was chosen Secretary. Chairman Smith asked for one of the dodgers
calling the meeting.
T. D. Pattullo asked the chairman who
called the meeting and what was the
purpose of it. He did not think it
had been sufficiently advertised.
At this point some one claimed to
be one of the oldest electors in Canada
nominated Frederick Stork for mayor.
That started the Stork faction and
they showed their hand at once, by
cheering and calling for "Question".
Chairman Smith stated that Mr.
Stork was already in the field. It
was foolish to nominate him again. This
meeting was for the purpose of bringing out candidates not already in the
field.
Mr. Pattullo claimed that a public
meeting had a perfect right to nominate
anyone they saw fit. whether he was
in the field or not. At the same time
Mr. Pattullo did not wish it thought
that he was committing himself to support Mr. Stork by these remarks.
A Two-thirds Vote
As was reported on the street in the
afternoon, J. R- Beatty, a prominent
Stork booster, arose and moved that
any candidate chosen by the meeting
should get a two-thirds vote.
This was promptly taken up by Mr.
Pattullo who wanted an amendment
making il a fifty per cent vote.
Finally both motion and amendment
were withdrawn and it was decided
that no vote be taken.
W. J. McKenzie called for the meeting to be orderly. He said Mr. Stork
was in the field. If anyone else had a
candidate in view, this was the time
to bring him out. As mayor of Prince
Rupert we want strong, energetic,
business men who arc not afraid to talk
to Cabinet Ministers or   heads of de
partments, or to the members of the
council.
Dr. Quinlan thought the question
of candidates had been discussed
long enough. Prince Rupert is in a
peculiar position and a good deal depends upon the first mayor and council.
We want the men who can do us the
most good; men who can and will be
in accord with the Provincial Government and can approach the Government with a full knowledge of our requirements. For this position, and
for the first term, he thought William
Manson, M. P. P., was the best man
in the city for mayor, and he nominated
him.      Several   seconded   the   motion.
The nomination of Fred. Stork was
included in the list, it being finally made
by F. T. Bowness and W. J. McKenzie.
Chairman V. W. Smith was nominated
next.
T. D. Pattullo, nominated by Messrs
Black and Scott was the fourth chosen,
and the nominations were closed.
For   Aldermen
Nominations  were  asked   for  aldermen and the following came in quick
succession :���
'*    T." V* McKay,
C. W. Peck,
R.  Douglas,
W. P. Lynch,
G. R. Naden,
G. W. Morrow,
Dr. W. B. Clayton,

J. McMillan,

It was decided to hold another meeting on Thursday night, to give the
candidates an opportunity to present
their platforms. Ihe gathering then
adjourned.
Band Did Not Donate
Ottawa, May 4,-��� The Conservative members in the House of Commons
to-day have demanded a list of the
names of those who contributed to
the Fielding fund, declaring the report
has been circulated that the Bank of
Montreal had contributed a present
of $25,000 to the Finance Minister.
Premier Lau'rier pledged his word that
the report is untrue.
FERRY AT ZANARDI
G.T.P.   WILL  TRANSFER  RAILS
AND MATERIAL  UNTIL
THE BRIDGE IS
COMPLETE
TALKS ABOUT THE WONDERFUL GROWTH OF THIS WONDERFUL
CITY OF THE NORTH
Congratulates The   Optimist on   its Development into the Daily Field
���Looks for   It Every  Week
"Track laying will be pushed with
all possible speed from now on" said
Mr. Chamberlain, General Manager
of the G. T. P. Ry., to the Optimist
at noon to-day. "We have secured the
scow Georgia and we are putting in
ferry slips at the Zenardi Rapids to
ferry the material 'across. We expect
the track laid right up to the top of
the river ready for trains to run over
by the time the bridge is completed.
The work has been progressing very
fast, but we expect it will go a little
faster  now."
"What about th$ .Zenardi Bridge,"
asked the Optimist.
"We are getting along very well
with it. If we have no difficulty with
the last two piers, the bridge contractor should be able to commence the erection of steel by the 1st of Jnne."
Asked about the station, Mr Chamberlain said he saw no reason for altering the original plans which provide for
the station alongside the hotel. In
order to do any excavating the hotel
will have to come out, and the General
Manager did not see how that could
be done at present.
As for the work here, Mr. Chamberlain is satisfied. He has been on a steady
tramp from the time he arrived and
has gone over most of the ground.
This afternoon he went over the grading being done_ to the end of the docks
and around the island. This morning
he went over the western yards. The
chief feature in Mr Chamberlain's
mind appears to be to rush the work all
along the line, and that means putting
on a larger force and a bigger payroll.
H. Philip, general secretary of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Ry., Montreal,
is one of those in Mr Chamberlain's
party. To the Optimist Mr. Philip
stated that this was his fourth trip here
The first one was in 1907, before the
place had been selected as the terminal
port. He was here a year ago before
the sale of lots, and when they were
just beginning to construct the plank
roads. There was practically no building then. Each visit has seen a wonderful difference in the place. When
he was coming up the harbor this time
and could see the road bed all graded
and tracks laid and then as he rounded
the island and caught a glimpse of the
city and all the buildings that had
been put up he was filled with wonder
He did not think such progress was
possible, although he had all faith in
the city and the people here.
He was not only surprised, but he
was   delighted    with   the   substantial
business blocks going up, as well as
the fine residences. He was also surprised at the amount of construction
now going on. He looked for Prince
Rupert to be one of the greatest Coast
cities, and deemed investment here
was as safe as any bank. When the
railroad is completed it will develop
a country that will mean much to this
city and he could not see where there
would be any slump in prices. This
city would be the exception. While
it is booming now, it is not a bubble,
and it will continue to boom.
In all his trips to this great city,
Mr. Philip has always struck fine
weather and his visit has always been
of the most pleasant. He congratulated
the Optimist on its development into
the daily field. He always looked
every week for the Optimist, to learn
what was going on here and he would
be glad to get the daily edition in
future.
A TRIBUTE TO EARL GREY

A GREAT COLLECTION
Of  Curios From .all   Parts  of   the
World
Captain Wm. Berndt, of the Humboldt S7 S. Co's Germanicus, made
many warm friends during his two
weeks stay in Prince Rupert while his
boat was being unloaded of the rails
for the G. T. P.
The captain has been 30 years a
sea captain and, like thousands of
others, went to sea soon after he learned
to walk. His boat arrived here on April
12th, and cleared again for Nanaimo
for orders. The Germanicus was from
Hamburg, Germany, and she took
her cargo at Cape Breton.
While in Prince Rupert Captain
Berndt was introduced to Captain
Buckholtz of the Henriette, and during
the early stages of their conversation,
they discovered that they i.ad been
shipmates 32 years ago. At the time,
Capt. Berndt was second officer on
a German ship and Capt. Buckholtz
was a seaman. They had a great talk
over old times, as neither had met
during the past 32 years.
One of the most interesting features
of the Germanicus, and the one which
attracted most attention from the
visitors, was the captain's collection
of curios. His little museum is a very
valuable one and contains specimens
of bones and relics that many National
museums would greatly- prize. The
genial captain has been collecting
curios ever since he went to sea, and he
has something from practically every
country in the world. The most important feature of the collection is that
every specimen is genuine. Among
other things are guns, revolvers, pistols
of all kinds and ages and from many
countries, including the old Arabian
flint-lock and the old silver barrel
blunderbus. He has tusks and teeth
of almost every kind of animal. There
are numerous spear-heads and arrowheads, including a very pretty little
blue amethyst arrow-head. There are
also many specimens of petrified oysters
wood, leaves and part of a mammoth
tusk
Among the assortment of knives
is one that was used by the head hun
ters of Borneo. The popular pastime
of those gentlemen is to hunt men and
behead them, and each time a head
was secured a little gold plug was
inserted in the blade of the knife.
This one had 72 plugs in it. The Captain secured this prize while he wr.s
in Borneo. The owner had beheaded
a man and had been captured by the
British. His knife was taken away from
from him and also the last head it
severed. The captain secured both and
has the skull yet.
There is a shell fired during the seige
of Ladysmith, and part of a Japanese
ese shell fired during the attack on
Vladivostok, as well as other shells
In his collection are beautiful specimens of alligators and crocodiles, stuffed; some 20 or 25 different kinds of
snakes; some 50 assegais, a javelin
used by tribes in South Africa, human,
and other skulls from many countries;
and many other curios.
While in this city the Captain added
to his collection a totem pole, and several other Indian relics.
Telegraph  Briefs.
Vancouver, May 4,��� The steamer
Marama arrived here last night with
500 passengers from Australia. It was
the largest list ever carried.
Vancouver, May 4,��� License Inspector Archie Robinson, who has
been in the city employ for ten year
resigned his position yesterday.
New York, May 4,��� United States
Court of Appeals has affirmed the
judgment of the Circuit Court in fining
the Standard Oil Co. of New Jersey.
London, May 4,��� Captain Peary
is a popular idol here and a great crowd
assembled to cheer him on his way
to the Royal Societies Club, where he
was banquetted last night.
Vancouver, May 4.���T. S. Taylor, the
editor of the Chicago Mining Journal,
is in the city and will go North to
inspect his Stewart holdings and the
various properties around the camp.
Kansas City, May 4,��� More clashes
have occurred in the trial of Dr. Hyde,
when one counsel accused another
of stealing his notes. The grand jury
and   judge   refused   to   interfere. THE    PRINCE    R U PEHT    OPTIMIST

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Editor Optimist:
Dear Sir���Fifteen bronze medals donated by the Governor General are
awarded each year in the Province on
tlie results of the high school entrance
examinations.
The Education Department selects the
places that are to have the honor of
receiving a medal. Politics seem to
have considerable weight in such selection. Merit certainly cuts no figure, because in 1906 the city of Enderby sent
up the best scholar in tlie Province at
these examinations, who won 842 marks,
mine is located on Bitter Creek and but got no medal. In 1907 Port Essington sent up the best scholar, who got
834 marks, but got no medal.
Prince Rupert should therefore claim
a medal this year, because it elected a
Government supporter to represent it
at Victoria. J. N. MUIR.

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
���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 and 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.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out tlie risk and worry by
insuring in the
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

A FREE FIELD
The public meeting last evening resulted in a lot of new prospective candidates, and if fifty per cent, of them stand, the electors are likely to get a pretty
fair list to choose from on the ballot. .Just what these new candidates will
stand for, or whether they will stand at all, remains to be seen. Whether or not
any new candidates are secured as a result of it, the meeting was nevertheless
productive of good. It gave the electors an opportunity to suggest the names
of men they would like to see in the field, and tlie subsequent meeting will give
the candidates an opportunity to express their policy. Publicity of public affairs
is one thing that cannot be overdone. There was an apparent effort on the part
of some to prevent freedom of speech and expression of opinion, but fortunately
it was overruled. Everyone present���and there were 700 in the hall had an
opportunity to put up a favorite. This system is better than selections made at
private meetings and caucuses. A candidate nominated at a public meeting at
least has the support of some who are not ashamed to stand up for him in
public. The "ticket" evidently recognised the value of such a nomination, ancl
insisted on putting up all their candidates again.
Tbe field is now a free one, and the fight will be on in a few days in earnest.
Will those prominent "ticket" supporters back up the anti-ticket nominations they made last night, or do they expect the public to take them for what
is commonly known as "goshers."

Starting on May 12th., the Beatrice

TO THE ELECTORS.
At the request of many of the electors
I have decided to be a candidate for
election as alderman at the forthcoming
election.
In order to place myself in a proper
light before the public, I would say
that I am free from all clique and party
influence.
The first council of Prince Rupert will
have many important issues to deal
with, and if I am elected I will advocate
and endeavour, to the best of my ability, to push through the following measures, and any others which may arise
from time to time, and are of advantage
to the city and citizens.
The immediate borrowing of as large
a sum of money as the credit of the city
will stand; if possible, a million dollars
or more, this to be covered by the
issuance of debentures of as long a
period and as small a rate of interest*
as possible.
The immediate construction of permanent roadways and sidewalks in the
localities where they are most needed.
The completion of an adequate water
works and sewerage system.
The appointment of a competent
city engineer and the immediateorganiza-
tion of a police force and fire department.
We are all aware that the railroad
will not be operating into Prince Rupert
for at least two years, but, in the meantime if we are successful in floating a
loan of sufficient proportion we will be
able to commence public works which
will establish a payroll that will keep
business going, and in these days of
advancement, time is discounted many
years ahead. It would be a wise policy
to complete these works now to be ready
for the incoming of the railroad.
The appointment of a competent
building inspector, which, however, could
possibly be managed by the chief of the
fire   department.
To protect, and also to assist in the
advancement of all industries in Prince
Rupert.
The inauguration of a publicity department to be under the control of
one of the City officials, say the city
clerk.
Dealing with the subject of liquor
licenses. This is a matter entirely in
the hands of the citizens. At the same
time I have no hesitation in stating
that I am in favour of the granting of
Hotel licenses.
I strongly advocate that the City
should own and operate all its own
utilities, such as telephones, waterworks,
tramways and electric lights, and to
put them on a revenue earning basis by
the appointment of competent managers.
That an eight hour day system be
established for labourers and mechanics
and that a fair wage be paid for same.
I am emphatic on the employment of
white  labour.
I would be in favour of contrac
as well as day labour, as circumstances
and nature of work will be a matter of
economics for the council to consider.
If nny further matters should arise
which areof importance to the electorate,
I am prepared to state my views definitely concerning them.
Yours respectfully,
G.   W.   ARNOTT.

BIG BUSINESS BLOCK.
To Be Built by Westenhaver Bros,
on Second Avenue.
After a six weeks pleasure and business trip to Oklahoma, Los Angelos
and Chicago, C. C. Westenhaver returned home last night and expressed
himself as delighted to get back. He
is now already to begin the season's
work in earnest and the first thing
he will get under way is a large business and apartment building on Second
Avenue, near McBride Street. The
building will be 57 feet by 75 feet
with stores on the ground floor and
basements under and three stories
high.
Each of the upper flats will be divided in 8 apartments of four rooms
and bath, and a kitchen in each. The
excavation is nearly completed now and
the building operations will be begun
this month.
They have plans in hand for another
building of similar design to be erected
on the corner near CD. Rand's office.
This structure may be extended back
100 feet with stores opening on Second
Avenue. This lot was the first to be
j sold at the sale last year, and if every-
I thing goes well it will be built on this
summer.
Mr. Westenhaver is more pleased
I than ever with Prince Rupert's climate. He says that in all the
cities he visited, the dust, was a fright,
and it went after his throat until he
could hardly speak. In the way of
weather he likes Prince Rupert best.
The temperature is ideal. As for business
he said that not one of the cities he
visited looked anything like as good
as does Prince Rupert. Its Rupert
all the way for him.
