[SEWERS AND
WATER WORKS
i SHOULD BE PAID OUT OF A GENERAL FUND SAYS ALD. LYNCH
Whole City Benefits by the Water
Works���Sewers Keep Down Epidemic and Everbody Should Contribute to Their Cost.
When reporting on the grading of the
I streets in section one Chief Engineer
Davis notified the council that they
would have to make provision for sewers,
water mains and storm drains at the
I same time. Thfa caused Aid. Barrow to
ask Aid. Lynch, chairman of the streets,
ALD. LYNCH SAYS DAY LABOR MEANS GRAFT
works and property committee, if he had
yet come to any decision as to how the
water and sewers were to be installed,
whether by frontage tax or out of a
general fund.
Aid. Lynch replied that so far as the
committee was concerned they had no
report to make, but personally he was
in favor of both the water works and
sewers being paid for out of a general
fund. In case of the water works the
whole city would be benefited and the
consumers would pay the cost. In regard to the sewers he said that if section
one was served with a complete sewer
system the whole town would benefit.
It would help to keep down an epidemic
and the city should pay for it.
[NEW LIQUOR ACT AUGUST FIRST
| Provides for Many Changes
in the Liquor Business.
Chief Wynn Sent Notices Out to All
Hotel Keepers Notifying Them of
The Changes.���Many Improvements are Looked For.
Chief of the Provincial Police Wynn
I has sent out notices to all the hotel men
] in the district informing them of the
fact that the new license act comes Into
effect on August 1st next. He also enclosed a copy of some of the particular
provisions and changes which are given
below:-
No licensee holding an hotel license
I for the sale of liquor by retail under this
! Act shall sell, give, or barter any liquor
to, or permit any liquor to be given sold,
or bartered to���
Any person apparently under the influence of liquor:
Any minor:
Any Indian:
Any person who has acquired the
reputation nf being a drunkard, or who
is known to periodically drink to excess,
or to habitually drink to excess: or
Any chauffeur operating any vehicle
by power and intended and plying for
the carriage of passengers for hire:
Vagrants and tramps: and
Prostitutes.
No licensee holding an hotel license
for the sale of liquor by retail shall���
Suffer or allow any woman to purchase
or to be served with liquor in the barroom of the hotel premises in respect of

results of any nature or kind whatever.
Aid,   Hilditch    Opposed   to
Street Work by Contract.
Engineer's Report on GradingSection
One Caused Long Debate���Day
Labor as Contracts���Nothing Decided���Sent to Streets Committee.
City Engineer Davis submitted his
report to the council last night dealing
with street improvements in Section one.
He recommended that the work
be done and gave an estimate of the
cost at about $400,000. He said that
it would be some time before complete
plans could be prepared, but realizing
that it was desirable to get some work
under way at once he mentioned Second
avenue and said that he would have
plans prepared for that ready for the
contractors to bid on as soon as desired.
The phrase, "ready for contractors
to bid on," being in the report gave Aid.
Hilditch an opportunity to open up
the question of day labor or contracts
on the city streets.
Aid. Lynch opposed the day labor
plan on the ground that it was the beginning of a huge system of graft. The
laborer grafts his $3.00 per day and he
sanctions the grafting of thousands by
his employers. The system was entirely
wrong.
Aid. Hilditch said he agreed with the
engineer except in connection with the
working out of the contract. So far as
the economic conditions of the west were
concerned Mr. Davis did not know anything about. That was for the council
to look after. We want a good class of
men here and not a lot of Montenegros
who send their money out of the city.
There is lots of room here for home builders and we want home builders. Therefore we want the city started off with
day labor so the city can employ whosoever they like. We need the money
here and we need men here who will
spend their money here.
Aid. Mobley said he was not deaf but
he had not heard anything in the engineer's report which suggested carrying
out the work by contract, day  labor or
any other way, and it did not say that
Montenegroes, Orientals or any other
class of people should be employed.
Aid. Pattullo said that no doubt the
work could be done by contract to better
advantage than by day labor. But to
overcome the Montenegro trouble he
suggested that a clause be put in the
contract stating that eight hours be a
day's work and the minimum wage be
$3.00 per day. A white man must compete with the foreigners in the amount
of work that is to be done. The council
cannot  shut   out  whoever   they   wish.
Aid. Hilditch said that a white man
refused to work in a ditch with a Montenegro.
Aid. Mobley said that while he did

KOREANS THREATEN TO REBEL
Bound To Be War When
Japan Attempts Annexation.
Japan Plans to Annex Hermit Kingdom Middle of Next Month.���
Koreans in Hawaii Making Elaborate Preparations for Resistance
(Special to the Optimist)
Tokio, July 27.���That Japan will
annex Korea in August and that such
action is certain to cause a general uprising of the Koreans, is the prediction
of officials here. The Koreans have been
in a state of revolt ever since Japan took
possession of the government, but
recently there has been quiet on the
island enforced by the most arbitrary
conduct on the part of the Japanese,
who have been executing natives upon
thc flimsiest of pretexts. It is known
here that the present quiet is omnious
and that it is accounted for by the fact
that the natives have been secretly arming and organizing in order to make one
bold stand for freedom from Japanese
control and tyranny. The date fixed
by Japan for taking over the kingdom
is being looked forward to by Koreans
with  a-   assumption of confidence in
the result.
Honolulu, July 27.���Among the thout
sands of Koreans here some excitemen-
has been caused by the official announcement that Japan will annex Korea
the middle of August. Koreans here have
been organizing several months and will
be well prepared for an uprising next
month. The preparations for arming the
rebels on the island are elaborate, and
leading Koreans'claim they have sufficient capital to place Korea in a condition to resist all and every move of
Japan in the direction of annexation,
and that they hope to drive Japan out
of their country altogether.
The Japanese minister here admits
that a bloody uprising is expected to
follow the official annexation.

GOOD DRUBBING
(Special to the Optimist)
Quebec, July 27.���This morning a
terrible explosion occurred on the transcontinental railway construction works
near the mouth of a tunnel in which
eighteen men were working, and only
one of the workers managed to escape
without serious injury.
Near the entrance to the tunnel a
large box of explosives had been deposited for blasting purposes. One of the
gang from another working came along,
picked up the hatchet lying on the box
and aimlessly struck the box with it.
Immediately there was a terrible explosion which tore down the entrance
to the tunnel and entombed the eighteen
workers. Not only this but it fired a
train leading into the workings and there

STILL  FIGHTING  THE  CHINESE
PIRATES   AT   MACAS
Portuguese Landed Three Hundred
Men But Were Forced to Retire
With Heavy Loss.���Chinese Believe They Have Govt. Support.
(Special to the Optimist)
Hongkong, July 27.���A third Portuguese force sent to wipe out the Chinese
pirates has been destroyed. Three hundred of this new force were landed at
Macas, the disputed territory and were
immediately given battle by the Chinese.
The engagement lasted for about an
hour, with great loss to the Portuguese,
when the government ordered that
hostilities cease.
The cruise of the Chinese gunboat gave
the pirates an intimation that their
course was favored by the Chinese
government, and they therefore refused
to retire upon the request of the Portuguese. It was the latter who did the
retiring, but they threaten to land tonight with a force sufficient to wipe
out the pirates and to settle their
sovereignty of the territory for all time.

Alderman Smith looked well browned
this morning and was full of enthusiasm
over the wonderful scenic beauty of
Graham Inlet, which he held to be for
grandeur the superior of any the world
could show. He had been the guest of
C. W. Peck who, in his steamer had
taken a party from Prince Rupert on an
excursion to the spot Mr. Smith believes
will soon become famous. The party
consisted of Mr. and Mrs. Smith and
their son, Mrs. Angus Stewart, George
Sharpe, Mrs. A. J. Morris, Miss McLaughlin, Mr. and Mrs. Dawes Gilmour
and the host Mr. Peck.
The voyage was south for about one
hundred miles to the mouth of the inlet
and then up the inlet eighty miles. The
inlet is a narrow pass walled in on either

TROOPS GUARDING TRACKS
OF THE G. T. R. AT
BROCKVILLE
Toronto, July 27-Even with
regular troops guarding G.T R.
tracks at Brockville there have
been some minor clashes with the
strikers, and from other points
also reports have been received
of attempts at rioting. The strike
looks now as if it would be long
drawn out. President Hays declares the railway to be winning,
but thc men on their side are just
as confident as ever. The boards
of trade throughout Ontario are
to take joint action to try and
settle the dispute. THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST

Cable   Twelve   Hundred   Feet   Long
Stretched Across Skeena
Ed. Mchaud, the foreman in charge
of the work of installing the cable ferry
at this place, has completed the tower on
the Copper City side of the Skeens
river, and has everything in ship shape
for starting the ferry in another ten
days. The tower on the Copper City
side of the Skeena river is 60 feet high,
constructed of heavy timbers, well
braced and guyed by quarter inch wire
cables. A big tree over a 100 feet in
height, trimmed of its branches to a
height of 60 feet will be used as a tower
on the north or railroad side of the
Skeena, and it is also well guyed to
other trees by quarter inch cables. The
cable crossing the river is one inch in
diameter, steel wire, and is 1200 feet
long. Two large scows, rigged together
in catamaran fashion, will be used, and
thus rigged the current will force them
across the river from shore to shore in
either direction without other motive
power.
W. J. Saunders has shown great enterprise by installing this much needed
ferry at Copper City, and it will be but
a short time when it will prove to be an
important factor in the upbuilding of
Copper City townsite.
Considerable attention is now being
attracted toward the promising mining
properties up Copper river, and mining
men and prospectors will now have no
difficulty and will experience no delays
in promptly crossing the Skeena at this
point, when they come here for a trip
up the Copper river.

"WINGS"   IS  BOOSTING
Says Kickers Against Prince Rupert
Are    Few    Outside
J. T. Wilkinson, better known as
"Wings" Wilkinson because of the habit
of turning up unexpectedly and being
heard of at so many distant points, came
up on the Princess Royal and was shown
over the city by his old friend John Y.
Rochester, and others. He expressed
his admiration of Prince Rupert's steady
growth and said he had observed Prince
Rupert was now being pretty well advertised on the outside so he knew it
must be a live one.
"There may be and there probably
are a few kickers but the most earnest
of these pessimists cannot get away from
the fact that as the terminus of
the great transcontinental railway Prince
Rupert is bound to grow into a large
city and a most important seaport.
Those who want to kick, cannot get over
this point. As to the city itself, I shall
be able to tell more of it later."
Women Write Bad Books
London, July 23.���Leading book
publishers were invited to give testimony
before a conference on public morals
and means of bettering them, which is
being held here. The publishers agreed
that women write most books objectionable from a moral point of view and
that women are far more eager to buy
such books than men are.

The decision of the city council not to use the city dailies for advertising is their
first stroke of economy. Many merchants who have gone broke have made the
same mistake of economizing on advertising.
The Victoria Colonist says the wireless station here is alright and that newspapers
in the south get a daily coast press service. This may be true but if there is anything
doing on the wireless it is all going out and nothing coming in. When the telegraph
wire   is   down    Rupert   is   usually   out of touch  with the world.
Anyway it was unkind for Aldermen Lynch and Naden to pass a motion to
join the U. B. C. M., in direct opposition to the mayor's suggestion. His worship
is usually more kindly disposed towards the bright ideas of these particular aldermen.
It is rumored that "the ticket" is already organized for the next municipal
election. Such foresight and energy is worthy of praise but the city would appreciate
it much more if they organized some public works and a pay roll.
ALD. LYNCH
SAYS DAY WORK
MEANS GRAFT
continued from page 1
not favor employing foreigners the work
of the city cannot be held up. To shut
out all other classes but Engish speaking
people would be a piece of foolishness.
He would only oppose employing Orientals.
Aid. Barrow said that the city should
employ British subjects whenever possible no matter of what nationality.
Aid. Naden favored employing the
best men obtainable no matter of what
nationality, but preferably the English
speaking races, but conditions of life
here will soon make good citizens of the
foreigners.
Political    Machine
Aid. Lynch thought that by fall or
winter there would be a large number of
Britishers and Canadians to be employed.
There is a great deal of nonsense in race
prejudice, but the foreigners often get
the upper hand and rule a community.
If we cannot get English speaking men
to remove this rock at $3.00 per day of
8 hours we had better get somebody else.
His main objection to day labor was that
it was the ground work of building up of a
political machine. The mer. employed
at $3.00 per day would not be for a
day's work but would be graft, and in
return for the privilege of grafting $3.00
a day they would countenance the grafting of thousands by the men who employed them. He was opposed to day
labor because it was a graft machine.
His worship said he was in favor of
an eight hour day and a minimum wage.
So far as carrying out the work he would
leave it to the city engineer. He is a good
man and if we do not allow him to be
boss of his department we might as well
fire him altogether.
Aid. Naden did not agree with the
mayor in handing over the management
of the city to the engineer. The council
must retain control of the city's business.
He did not refer to the present engineer.
It was a question of principle only. It
was for the city council to decide whether
the work shall be done by day labor or
by contract and the engineer will carry
that out.
Aid. Mobley said that by his remarks
he did not mean to infer that the city
should loose any control of any department as the executive head.
His worship explained that so far as
he was concerned he had not thought
to turn over the management
of anything to an official without reference to the council. The engineer is
boss of his department and the council
must be guided by his advice on technical matters, but the council shall al
ways retain the right to accept or reject his reports.
Aid. Lynch moved that the council
instruct the city engineer to prepare
ways and means for carrying out his
suggestions as to providing for sewers,
water works and storm drains and to
submit an estimate of cost. Aid. Pattullo
seconded it and it carried.
The engineer's report was then referred to the streets committee.
WILL PURCHASE
MORE STEAMERS
CAPTAIN   NICHOLSON   HAS   HIS
EYE ON THE MARKET
Will Increase Number of Boats on
Prince Rupert Run as Opportunity
Offers.���May Buy St. Denis to Run
Between    Here    and    Islands.
Victoria, July 24.���A dispatch received yesterday from Northern British
Columbia stated that the Grand Trunk
Pacific Steamship Co., were trying to
purchase another steamer for their coast
fleet. Captain Nicholson was Interviewed
this morning in regard to this and stated
that, while they were not actually
buying at the present time, they were
keeping their eye on the market, and
if they saw an opportunity to secure
the boat they required they would conclude a purchase. He did not care to discuss the matter further, as.he said they
were not doing anything just now, but at
the same time he admitted that they
might at any time add another vessel to
their fleet.
It has been stated before in the Times
that the Grand Trunk Pacific must have
other plans in view in regard to the shipping business on this Coast,or they would
not have erected such extensive docks
both here and at Seattle as has been done.
The statement of Captain Nicholson confirms this view. It is the intention of the
Grand Trunk to play an important part
in transportation on this Coast. Whether
they will enter the ferry business between
here and Vancouver does not appear, but
it is certain that the Grand Trunk Pacific
fleet of steamers will soon be materially
increased.
It has been suggested, and with some
Bhow of probability, that the Grand Trunk
Pacific Steamship Company will purchase
the steamer St. Denis, which for the past
year has been under charter to the Boscowitz Steamship Co., but which is to be
released at the close of this month.
Negotiations between the local company
and the owners of the steamer have been
under way, and may be concluded in the
near future. The St. Denis is a useful
boat, and would be well suited for the
business between Prince Rupert and
Queen Charlotte Island*.

CITY TO PAY TAXES
On the Government Property Until
It   Is   Sold
In the engineer's report was a suggestion that the government property
in section one which will be benefitted by
the proposed improvements be assessed
the same as other property and that the
city pay the taxes until sold by the
government when the purchaser would
pay the taxes thereafter. Should the
government land be exempt whoever
purchased it would have the benefit of
the improvements without paying a cent.
Aid. Mobley asked if it would be legal
to tax the government property and pay
the taxes out of the city's funds. He did
not think it was and would like to ask
the   city  solicitor's  opinion.
Aid. Naden said that while the provincial government will pay no taxes
on property owned in a city they will
very often make a grant to the city to
help build a wharf, a bridge or something of that nature which more than
pays the amount of their taxes. He did
not anticipate any trouble in that regard.
MARINE
Steamer Royal sailed just after midnight with only a fair passenger list.
The Cetriana came in yesterday
and discharged merchandize. She does
not go to Stewart this trip but returns
from here to Vancouver.
The Prince Rupert, due today,
will not go to Stewart but will remain
at this port to do some repairs.

CHANGE OF SCHEDULE
Captain     Nicholson     Reorganizing
Service  with  the   Islands.
Captain Nicholson, superintendent of
ocean transportation of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, was taking his ease at the Inn
last night and incidentally told of the
object of his trip to the Islands. He had
returned from Massett and is going the
again tomorrow to thoroughly investigate conditions and improve transportation facilities as much as possible
seeking "to do good to the greatest
number."
One change he has already decided
upon. The company's boats from here
are to run direct to Massett, taking Port
Simpson and other points on the return
journey. The boat leaving here Sundays
for Massett will be able to get in and out
of there the same night and call at way
points on her journey back to this port.
Captain Nicholson's idea is to get
thoroughly acquainted with the people
of the islands and their needs and to
endeavor to serve all. Other changes will
probably be made as the result of his
trip there tomorrow. He will probably
return south on the Prince George next
Monday.

The council did not hesitate in granting permission to the Fire and Water
Committee to purchase 500 feet of new
hose and to erect a couple of sub-stations
to hold the hose. The hose will be attached to the hydrant so that in case
of fire a man has only to grab the nozzle
and run. The sub-stations will be built
over the hydrants.
A communication was read from Chas.
Sangster, Canadian Fairbanks Co., asking what had been done in regard to
their tender for hydrants for the water
works.
From White Bros Seattle asking for
information re an electric light plant
and asking the privilege of giving prices
and information as to their machines.
Both the communications were referred to the clerk to reply to.
Committee Report
The Fire and Water Committee reported as follows:-
To the Mayor and Council,
City:
Gentlemen,���We, your Committee on
fire and water beg to recommend the
I purchase of 500 feet more of 2 1-2 inch
, hose, to be used in sub-stations which we
1 would recommend  be erected  in  con-
, gested district, Section One (1).
In speaking to the report Aid. Mobley
; said that the cost of the sub-hose stations
three in number, would be a very no-
i minal one as they would only be large
j enough to hold a hose reel or a box to
, hold the hose in.
The mayor suggested that the com-
i mittee   also   consider   the   advisability
j of purchasing a couple more hose reels
as they were only nominal.
Aid. Mobley said that there were
1500 feet of hose now on hand and the
500 they wish to order would be sufficient. The idea so far as the new hose
was concerned was to attach the hose
to the hydrant and all a man has to do
is to run with the nozzel.
On motion of Aid. Barrow and Aid.
Pattullo the committee's report was
adopted and the committee ordered to
purchase the hose to erect the necessary
sub-stations:-
By-law Passed
Aid. Pattullo introduced a Temporary
Loan By-law providing for borrowing
$125,000 to carry on the affairs of the
city until the taxes were collected. The
by-law was read twice and passed and
then it was passed the committee of the
whole.

TO IMPROVE
TABLE SERVICE
CAPTAIN  NICHOLSON EXPLAINS
DIFFICULTY ENCOUNTERED
Sending to the Atlantic Coast for
Best Steward that Can be Secured���
Whole of Kitchen Crew Changed���
New Chef to be Engaged.
Captain Nicholson said last night that
he was still wrestling with the difficulties of bringing the service on the
Prince Rupert up to the perfection point
he was determined to have it. He admitted there had been some slight cause
of complaint but it was solely due to the
fact that a new service could not be organized at a moment's notice, and the
travelling public must have a little
patience and confidence that the company was doing its very best.
Captain Nicholson knows the catering
business from A to Izzard, and is determined there shall be no ocean boats
superior in this respect to those of the
Grand Trunk Pacific.
"With the Prince Rupert we started
out under disadvantages," he said last
night. "In the first place it was only
three days from the time the steamer
got in from her long voyage around the
Cape until the first reception meal was
given. Not only in regard to the table
but the vessel generally that was the
most wonderful record ever made. It
generally takes weeks to get a boat in
order. Why it took the steamer Venture
over a couple of months. With the Prince
George we were moro fortunate. We had
eight days in which to get her ready
and although her table service is by no
means up to what we shall have it there
is no doubt it is a great improvement
on the Prince Rupert.
"On the Rupert we have the best
planned kitchen entirely on the most
modern lines, fine ranges, fine steam
tables, electric dish washer, electric
egg boiler and so on. But the staff,
its organization and systematizing, is
the important point. With only three
days at our disposal in which to do everything there is little wonder we fell down on
some minor but important points. It is
the little things that count in arranging
a table service.
"Our steward, of course, was selected
with great care. He was a first class man
from the White Star line but somehow
did not fit in and we had to let him out.
We have now a shore steward until we
can get one of the best available with
experience on Atlantic liners. We have
changed the kitchen crew entirely and
I shall keep weeding them out until the
service is what it ought to be. In the
Prince George staff we begun more
fortunately. The steward came to us
from a Cunarder and the chef has seen
service on some of the best ships of the
country.
"But the travelling public should
understand that it takes time to organize such a force and get them working
together like clockwork." The captain
at this point enumerated a number of
fanous hotels which had taken from two
months to two years to organize their
kitchen and dining room staffs, concluding with���"If the public will have
a little patience they will have the most
perfectly-arranged service on our boats
that seaoned experience and money can
produce."

The decision of the city council not to use the city dailies for advertising is their
first stroke of economy. Many merchants who have gone broke have made the
same mistake of economizing on advertising.
The Victoria Colonist says the wireless station here is alright and that newspapers
in the south get a daily coast press service. This may be true but if there is anything
doing on the wireless it is all going out and nothing coming in. When the telegraph
wire   is   down    Rupert   is   usually   out of touch   with the world.
Anyway it was unkind for Aldermen Lynch and Naden to pass a motion to
join the U. B. C. M., in direct opposition to the mayor's suggestion. His worship
is usually more kindly disposed towards the bright ideas of these particular aldermen.
It is rumored that "the ticket" is already organized for the next municipal
election. Such foresight and energy is worthy of praise but the city would appreciate
it much more if they organized some public works and a pay roll.
ALD. LYNCH
SAYS DAY WORK
MEANS GRAFT
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
not favor employing foreigners the work
of the city cannot be held up. To shut
out all other classes but Engish speaking
people would be a piece of foolishness.
He would only oppose employing Orientals.
Aid. Barrow said that the city should
employ British subjects whenever possible no matter of what nationality.
Aid. Naden favored employing the
best men obtainable no matter of what
nationality, but preferably the English
speaking races, but conditions of life
here will soon make good citizens of the
foreigners.
Political    Machine
Aid. Lynch thought that by fall or
winter there would be a large number of
Britishers and Canadians to be employed.
There is a great deal of nonsense in race |
prejudice, but the foreigners often get
the upper hand and rule a community.
If we cannot get English speaking men
to remove this rock at $3.00 per day of I
8 hours we had better get somebody else.
His main objection to day labor was that
It was the ground work of building up of a |
political machine.    The men employed
at $3.00 per day would not be for a
day's work but would be graft, and in '
return for the privilege of grafting $3.00
a day they would countenance the grafting of thousands by the men who employed them.   He was opposed to day
labor because it was a graft machine.
His worship said he was in favor of
an eight hour day and a minimum wage.
So far as carrying out the work he would
leave it to the city engineer. He is a good
man and if we do not allow him to be
boss of his department we might as well
fire him altogether.
Aid. Naden did not agree with the
mayor in handing over the management
of the city to the engineer. The council
must retain control of the city's business.
He did not refer to the present engineer.
It was a question of principle only. It
was for the city council to decide whether
the work shall be done by day labor or
by contract and the engineer will carry
that out.
Aid. Mobley said that by his remarks
he did not mean to infer that the city
should loose any control of any department as the executive head.
His worship explained that so far as
he was concerned he had not thought
to turn over the management
of anything to an official without reference to the council. The engineer is
boss of his department and the council
must be guided by his advice on technical matters, but the council shall al
ways retain the right to accept or reject his reports.
Aid. Lynch moved that the council
instruct the city engineer to prepare
ways and means for carrying out his
suggestions as to providing for sewers,
water works and storm drains and to
submit an estimate of cost. Aid. Pattullo
seconded it and it carried.
The engineer's report was then referred to the streets committee.
WILL PURCHASE
MORE STEAMERS
CAPTAIN   NICHOLSON   HAS   HIS
EYE ON THE MARKET
Will Increase Number of Boats on
Prince Rupert Run as Opportunity
Offers.���May Buy St. Denis to Run
Between    Here    and    Islands.
Victoria, July 24.���A dispatch received yesterday from Northern British
Columbia stated that the Grand Trunk
Pacific Steamship Co., were trying to
purchase another steamer for their coast
fleet. Captain Nicholson was interviewed
this morning in regard to this and stated
that, while they were not actually
buying at the present time, they were
keeping their eye on the market, and
if they saw an opportunity to secure
the boat they required they would conclude a purchase. He did not care to discuss the matter further, as he said they
were not doing anything just now, but at
the same time he admitted that they
might at any time add another vessel to
their fleet.
It has been stated before in the Times
that the Grand Trunk Pacific must have
other plans in view in regard to the shipping business on this Coast,or they would
not have erected such extensive docks
both here and at Seattle as has been done.
The statement of Captain Nicholson confirms this view. It is the intention of the
Grand Trunk to play an important part
in transportation on this Coast. Whether
they will enter the ferry business between
here and Vancouver does not appear, but
it is certain that the Grand Trunk Pacific
fleet of steamers will soon be materially
increased.
It has been suggested, and with some
show of probability, that the Grand Trunk
Pacific Steamship Company will purchase
the steamer St. Denis, which for the past
year has been under charter to the Boscowitz Steamship Co., but which is to be
released at the close of this month.
Negotiations between the local company
and the owners of the steamer have been
under way, and may be concluded in the
near future. The St. Denis is a useful
boat, and would be well suited for the
business between Prince Rupert and
Queen Charlotte Islands.

CITY TO PAY TAXES
On the Government Property Until
It   Is   Sold
In the engineer's report was a suggestion that the government property
in section one which will be benefitted by
the proposed improvements be assessed
the same as other property and that the
city pay the taxes until sold by the
government when the purchaser would
pay the taxes thereafter. Should the
government land be exempt whoever
purchased it would have the benefit of
the improvements without paying a cent.
Aid. Mobley asked if it would be legal
to tax the government property and pay
the taxes out of the city's funds. He did
not think it was and would like to ask
the   city   solicitor's   opinion.
Aid. Naden said that while the provincial government will pay no taxes
on property owned in a city they will
very often make a grant to the city to
help build a wharf, a bridge or something of that nature which more than
pays the amount of their taxes. He did
not anticipate any trouble in that regard.

CHANGE OF SCHEDULE
Captain     Nicholson      Reorganizing
Service with  the  Islands.
Captain Nicholson, superintendent of
ocean transportation of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, was taking his ease at the Inn
last night and incidentally told of the
object of his trip to the Islands. He had
returned from Massett and is going the
again tomorrow to thoroughly investigate conditions and improve transportation facilities as much as possible
seeking "to do good to the greatest
number."
One change he has already decided
upon. The company's boats from here
are to run direct to Massett, taking Port
Simpson and other points on the return
journey. The boat leaving here Sundays
for Massett will be able to get in and out
of there the same night and call at way
points on her journey back to this port.
Captain Nicholson's idea is to get
thoroughly acquainted with the people
of the islands and their needs and to
endeavor to serve all. Other changes will
probably be made as the result of his
trip there tomorrow. He will probably
return south on the Prince George next
Monday.

The council did not hesitate in granting permission to the Fire and Water
Committee to purchase 500 feet of new
hose and to erect a couple of sub-stations
to hold the hose. The hose will be attached to the hydrant so that in ease
of fire a man has only to grab the nozzle

Committee Report
The Fire and Water Committee reported as follows:-
To the Mayor and Council,
City:
Gentlemen,���We, your Committee on
fire and water beg to rncommend the
purchase of 500 feet more uf 2 1-2 inch
hose, to be used in sub-stations which we
would recommend be erected in congested district, Section One (1).
In speaking to the report Aid. Mobley
said that the cost of the sub-hose stations
three in number, would be a very nominal one as they would only be large
enough to hold a hose reel or a box to
hold the hose in.
The mayor suggested that the committee also consider the advisability
of purchasing a couple more hose reels
as they were only nominal.
Aid. Mobley said that there were
1500 feet of hose now on hand and the
500 they wish to order would be sufficient. The idea so far as the new hose
was concerned was to attach the hose
to the hydrant and all a man has to do
is to run with the nozzel.
On motion of Aid. Barrow and Aid.
Pattullo the committee's report was
adopted and the committee ordered to
purchase the hose to erect the necessary
sub-stations :-

Aid. Pattullo introduced a Temporary
Loan By-law providing for borrowing
$125,000 to carry on the affairs of the

DIFFICULTY ENCOUNTERED
Sending to the Atlantic Coast for
Best Steward that Can be Secured���
Whole of Kitchen Crew Changed���
New Chef to be Engaged.
OFFICIALS ARE COMING
President   Hays   and   Official   Staff
Be   Here   Next   Month
The week after Sir Wilfrid Laurier's
visit to Prince Rupert President Hays
will be here with a large party of officials. Mr. Smithers, chairman of the
board of directors and Mr. Norman,
secretary of the board, are
coming from London. Vice-president
Chamberlain will also be of the party
and'about thirty members of the official
staff including freight and passenger
agents and all the heads of the various
departments.
In all probability H. B. Charlton,
general advertising agent of the company,
will join the party here. He is now on
a tour of the line from Edmonton with
a party of twenty fitted out as for an exploring expedition. This party includes
fifteen leading newspaper men and artists
of the United Slates and Canada who,
when they reach here, will have spent
three months in thc wilderness that will
"blossom us the rose" with the advent
of the railway.
Captain Nicholson said last night that
he was still wrestling with the difficulties of bringing the service on the
Prince Rupert up to the perfection point
he was determined to have it. He admitted there had been some slight cause
of complaint but it was solely due to the
fact that a new service could not be organized at a moment's notice, and the
travelling public must have a little
patience and confidence that the company was doing its very best.
Captain Nicholson knows the catering
business from A to Izzard, and is determined there shall be no ocean boats
superior in this respect to those of the
Grand Trunk Pacific.
"With the Prince Rupert we started
out under disadvantages," he said last
night. "In the first place it was only
three days from the time the steamer
got in from her long voyage around the
Cape until the first reception meal was
given. Not only in regard to the table
but the vessel generally that was the
most wonderful record ever made. It
generally takes weeks to get a boat in
order. Why it took the steamer Venture
over a couple of months. With the Prince
George we were more fortunate. We had
eight days in which to get her ready
and although her table service is by no
means up to what we shall have it there
is no doubt it is a great improvement
on the Prince Rupert.
"On the Rupert we have the best
planned kitchen entirely on the most
modern lines, fine ranges, fine steam
tables, electric dish washer, electric
egg boiler and so on. But the staff,
its organization and systematizing, is
the important point. With only three
days at our disposal in which to do everything there is little wonder we fell down on
some minor but important points. It is
the little things that count in arranging
a table service.
"Our steward, of course, was selected
with great care. He was a first class man
from the White Star line but somehow
did not fit in and we had to let him out.
We have now a shore steward until we
can get one of the boat available with
experience on Atlantic line rs. We have
changed the kitchen crew entirely and
I shall keep weeding them out until the
service is what it ought to be. In thc
Prince George staff we begun more
fortunately. The steward came to us
from a Cunarder and the chef has seen
service on some of the best ships of the
country.
"But thc travelling public Hhould
understand that it takes time to organize such a force and get them working
together like clockwork." The captain
at this |<oint enumerated a number of
faimus hotels which had taken from two
months to two years to organize their
kitchen and dining room staffs, concluding with���"If the public will have
a little patience they will have the most
perfectly-arranged service on our boats
that seaoned experience and money can
produce."

SEELYVILLE IS GROWING
Becomes   Supply    Point   for    Construction Work of Railway
Seelyville is the supply base for all
Grand Trunk Pacific construction work
up the Bulkley, and transfer point for
all material used in the construction
of that end of the second division, the
Bulkley valley end being sixty miles
in length, reaching from the Skeena
river at Seelyville to Telkwa.
Seelyville townsite is owned by J. C.
K. Seely, of Hazelton, from whom the
firm of Foley, Welch & Stewart leased
five acres of land last summer for warehouses purposes. All surrounding land
Mr. Seely has plotted out in the town-
site and quite a number of business
houses are already arranging to move
there. It looks very probable that *y
fall there will be a branch of the Union
Bank of Canada at this place as well
as a branch pay office. Buildings are
being erected on all sides, and the town
already bids fair to become one of the
permanent railroad towns of prominence
in the northern interior.
Taken for Dr. Crippen
Chicago, July 23.���A man thought
to answer the description of Dr. Crippen,
who Is wanted for the murder of his
wife in London, was arrested here late
today. The man arrested carried about
$2,000 worth of negotiable paper with
him, and refused to answer questions
regarding his identity. After thorough
examination the police concluded that
the suspect was not Crippen.
Harmony   in   Citizenhood
"This is our country, we are all
fellow-citizens; we know no east and
no west in that sense. We are all Canadians. I have worked all my life for
harmony in the citizenhood of all races
who inhabit our common country. May
we all, by the grace of God, consecrate
our lives and our service to that end."
���Sir Wilfrid Laurier.

London, July 23.���At a meeting of
the Associated Chamber of Commerce

is an enormous amount of building
going on.
New Zealand intends to restrict the

Just to have "furnished rooms

"homes within homes"���is very
large.
And among the people who live
in "one room homes" are an increasing number who like to have
things a little better THAN USUAL.
They like to have a pleasant
room, and they like to have it
fitted up DISTINCTIVELY, with
taste.
They will cheerfully, eagerly,

COMMISSIONER
OF FISHERIES
MR. BABCOCK TELLS OF SALMON

WALLACE
Co., Ltd.
Fulton St. and Third Ave.
Victoria, July 23.���M. J. P. Babcock, deputy commissioner of fisheries
for the province, returned by the G. T.
P. steamer Prince Rupert on Sunday
from the north, where he was engaged
with Dominion Inspector Williams in
furnishing boat ratings. The two commissioners met in Smith's inlet in June,
and together visited every salmon cannery in Northern British Columbia.
They investigated fish supply conditions
and matters affecting the industry generally, with a view to complying with
the request of the federal minister of
marine and fisheries, who visited there
to prepare a boat-rating schedule for
permanent adoption fixing the number of
boats to be allowed on each river and
to be assigned to the various canneries.
As a result of their investigations
they have practically completed a report
that will shortly be transmitted to the
department of marine and fisheries. Its
contents cannot be made known until
the minister shall decide.
Mr. Babcock speaks with enthusiasm
of the great salmon run in the north
this season. "It is something phenomenal," he declares. "This run on the
Skeena is greater than any of the old
managers can remember. I heard only
one experienced manager venture a
comparison, and he remarked that this
year's run was the heaviest since 1882.
The pack of all the canneries on the
Skeena is more than double that of last
year at this time. In fact, it is satisfactory at all points throughout the
north, though along the Skeena there is
a shortage of fishermen, and some
cannerymen find it difficult to secure
sufficient indoor help. In other parts,
the labor supply appears to be adequate.
"I may say that while in the provincial rating 850 fishermen's licenses are
available for the Skeena, up to July 14
only 770 had been issued. I understand
that railway construction and the numerous government works under way in
the district have absorbed all the labor
available, and so have seriously interfered with the canners' regular supply.
In addition to this, few Indians have
come down the Skeena to the fishing
grounds, and less than the usual num
ber  of   Haidas  have  come  over from
Queen Charlotte Islands."
The commissioner added that the fish
caught in the north were larger and in
better condition than usual. This year
a case averages less then twelve fish,
whereas in former years fourteen was
codsidered a fair average.

TOURISTS TO LAND
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
the people who patronize this boat are
clamoring to have a call made at Prince
Rupert.
The management was desirous of
accommodating its patrons but was
afraid there might be trouble with the
immigration law at this Canadian port,
as the new regulations have seriously
interfered with passenger traffic generally. They agreed to call at Prince Rupert
if first officially assured there would
be no trouble at this port.
The secretary of the Publicity club
took the matter up and interviewed
Dr. Reddie, the immigration agent at
this port. He was assured that all
through passengers on board this excursion steamer would be allowed to
land, after due inspection, but not to
carry their baggage ashore. Upon this
the secretary wired the Pacific Coast
Steamship company at Seattle���"Immigration agent assures me Spokane
tourists will be allowed to land at Prince
Rupert."
There was necessity for haste as the
Spokane was booked to leave Seattle
last night. She has one hundred and
forty seven tourists on this trip and will
make several more trips during the summer. The tourists will be able to spend
four hours looking over the growth of
Prince Rupert, and this should prove
to be an advertisement for the city
of the very best kind.

In Stewart in Nine Days and Had a
Show    Running
A. D. Dalgleish, of Stewart, is in
town for a couple of days on business.
He told the Optimist about the erection
of the Empress Theatre in that town.
He started on Friday to cut down the
trees and to clear the land and in nine
days he had the theatre completed and
a show opened that night. The building
is 60 x 90 feet, two stories in front and
one at the back. It is built of heavy
timber and clap boards, and the stage
and lights were all in. This is a record
and the proprietor, M. Dalgleish deserves credit.
