fact that Mr. Cuthbert was appointed
assessor by the government. When the

Roller Rink Open.
The roller rink was formally opened
for skating last night when about 150
took a roll over the large surface which
is in good shape. A number of the new
beginners had the usual falls and the
spectators were afforded much amusement. Good music was furnished by a
band, and the season promises to be a
good one.
Preparing Report.
Aid. Mobley and Aid. Pattullo got
together this morning and prepared a
report for the Water and Fire Committee to present at to-night's meeting of
the Council.
Speaking at Winnipeg last week,
General Manager Chamberlain, of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, after an absence of
about four weeks, having visited Prince
Rupert, Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle and
Edmonton,  said:
"Track laying on the mountain division out of Prince Rupert has been
commenced and we expect to have 100
miles completed by the end of July,
which will take us to Copper river,
and we hope to have the track to Hazelton about November 1. Work on the
balance of the line to Alcermere is progressing rapidly. Our three steamers,
Prince Rupert, Prince George and Prince
Albert, are now on the way to the Pacific
Coast, coming around Cape Horn. The
Prince Rupert and Prince George are
intended to run between Seattle, Victoria, Vancouver and Prince Rupert and
the Prince Albert, which is a smaller
boat, will be placed in the Prince Rupert-
Queen   Charlotte   Islands   service.
The change that has taken place at
Prince Rupert since my last visit there
in August is most remarkable. All
classes of business are represented and
work has recently been commenced on
a large fish plant. It is claimed the
population is 5,000. Great activity prevails on the Pacific coast, and everything indicates prosperity. I see no
reason why these conditions should not
continue.
'We are making good progress with
ballasting on the line west of Edmonton. The piers of the McLeod River
bridge are now in, and the bridge erection will be commenced in a day or
two. We should get across this bridge
early in July, when the track will be

For a number of years Essingtonians

year carried the festival well into tbe

later joined the Port Essington citizens

I a motion was passed by the Aldermen

Word has reached the city from some
of the local parties who left two or
throe weeks ago to prospect and to develop previously located claims in the
Ellis Arm district. Everyone up there
is very optimistic and that country
promises to rival Stewart. Not only
did many local men go prospecting, but
a large number of those who went to
Stewart and who have been working In
that locality, are hitting the trails over
mountains for tbe new and more promising territory.
! John McGrath is now doing assessment work on his claims which were
recently bonded for a good figure, lie

known men, have discovered and are

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
THE germ of both Life and
Fire Insurance had its :' e 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 the 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.

(Special tn Optimist.)
Vancouver, May 26. -Alexander Robertson, of the McAlpine-Robertson Construction Company of England, has
been here for several days looking for
a suitable site for large works, and has
as yet not succeeded in finding one available that is larg,- enough and offers the
conveniences for shipping the company
desires. He states that;|his company
purposes bringing over a",machinery

Clyde Steamer Sunk by a German
Wind Jammer.
(Special to The Optimist)
London, May 26���Twenty-two seamen
were drowned in the English Channel
yesterday by the collision of the Clyde
steamer Kerry Moore with the German
four-masted ship J. K. Vinnen. In the
fog the sailing ship rammed into the
steamer, tearing right through her
amidships. The Kerry Moore immediately sunk with all on board. The Vinnen was badly broken up about the
bows but managed to make the Fairway and was towed into" Portsmouth
harbor. Off Cowes on the Isle of
Wight one of the seamen of the Kerry
Moore was picked up. The officers of
the sailing vessel claim that she was on
her true course at the time of the collision and had the right of way.
The Cottage City brought nearly
twenty-five tons of perishables, principally vegetables and fruits, for this city,
and also had a good list of passengers.
The Rupert City brought in about
fifty passengers and among those who
left for Vancouver were: H. Rivet,
Father Bunoz. Miss Dudgeon, E. ,

(Special to the Optimist.)
Manila, May 26. -The immense dock
Dewey, the largest dry-dock in the
world, sank last night in 70 feet of
water. A preliminary investigation
shows that it was from no fault of construction but because the valves had
���been left open through carelessness.
All the costly machinery of the huge
structure is said to have been ruined.
Whether the dock can be raised and
again floated is a great engineering
problem. Considering the enormous expense of towing the structure from the
construction yards in Philadelphia all
around the Hum, there is a probability
that raising it will be attempted.

le balance of the year.
At the suggestion of Aid.  Lynch it
��as decided to look into the provision
lf the city charter before acting on the
matter.
CitizenB    Option.
Aid. Pattullo introduced the question
[ the option some of the citizens took
upon the rights of Woodworth and Coote
on the Woodworth lake. The citizens
put up $1,000 and agreed to pay $30,000
[or the rights, if the city council deemed
it advisable to purchase. The option was
pod until August 1st next.
The company claimed to have rights
iver 8000 inches of water in Woodworth
nd Shawatlans lakes and tributary
iireams.
In connection with the above Aid.
Pattullo stated that Mr. Woodworth
positive that their rights were
correct and that the government reservation of 300 inches was on Shawatlans
lake and not on Woodworth lake, an
Ihe latter was what the city needed, as
it was higher. The alderman did not
think that 300 inches was sufficient for
icity of the size Prince Rupert would be.
Aid. Mobley submitted a letter from
Mr. Tatlow dealing with the reservation. He added that it was necessary
tor the city to show that Woodworth
was the only suitable source of
supply for the city. He did not think
the city would have any difficulty in
proving its position, and that was why
he asked for two engineers to report
on the matter.
Aid. Pattullo stated that there was
a big legal question involved and  it
would have to be fought out by lawyers.
Aid.   Mobley   said   that   according
to an engineer's figures 300 inches was
lulticient water   for   a   population   of
B2.000 people.   If the government gave
khe water to the city any legal battle
(allowing would be between the government and Woodworth and Coote.
Aid. Hilditch proposed that the discussion be deferred until the special
meeting.
Aid. Pattullo still contended that the
legal fight would be between the city and
The company. He thought that the city

Frank Irish Wanted,
The Provincial Police Department,have
been asked to make enquiries for Frank
Irish,  of Southsea, Eng., who is .supposed to have arrived in this Province
some time early in 1909. Before coming
to British Columbia Frank Irish is said
to have worked for a short time on a |
government tugbout in San Francisco, !
and previous to that worked as a loco-
motive engineer on  one of  the  South j
American railways.    If anyone has any |
knowledge of the  above, Chief Wynn
will be pleased to hear of it.
W. A. S. Colter, president and managing director of the Prince Rupert
Savings and Trust Company, Ltd.,
came in on the Princess Beatrice and
is staying at the Grand Trunk Inn.
During the week he has made a thorough
canvas of the business men, including
the mayor and new aldermen, and is
enthusiastic in regard to the business
outlook.   Mr. Colter said this morning:
"My company was incorporated about
a year ago and while the head office will
be in Vancouver, we hope, as the name
implies, to do our principal business
here, and in the country tributary to
it. We have an authorized capital of
$300,000 and in addition have made
arrangements for a big trust fund to
work on in the shape of .loans and so
forth.
"We are prepared to open up in Prince
Rupert as soon as the necessary arrangements can be made, and from time to
time shall open up new branches at new
towns. We have men now at Fort George,
for instance, and I am going to take a look
at Stewart.     For the operation of our
main office in this city we shall have an
advisory board of six or seven of your
leading business men, who will control
affairs subject to the board of directors
in Vancouver.
"I am much impressed with Prince
Rupert and I think you have a good
hustling city council. In fact I find your
business men imbued with what you will
excuse me for calling a "Seattle spirit".
I am a Canadian, but obtained my financial training on the other side. I like
your newspaper, and especially its
title. Optimism and common sense
work wonders. I am confident my
company will do a large business here."
