OYALTY IS IMMORAL
I Rant of Laborite Against the
Civil List Bill
I Labor Member Barnes Declares
Royal Management is Honeycombed With Parasites ��� Parliament Votes Whole List.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 23.���In the house of
commons last night the civil list was
brought forward by the chancellor of the
exchequer, Premier Asquith, and was,
as is customary, strongly attacked by the
members representative of labor. But
the attack was not nearly as strong or
as well organized as it has been on previous occasions and outside of the labor
ranks secured no support whatever, the
vote of twenty-sue against the increase
practically representing the whole strength of the labor party in the house.
Mr. Barnes, member for Oldham, led
the attack on the hill, his first point
being that the amount was already excessive without any addition being made
to it, and as a representative of the people
called upon to pay the enormous sum
named in the bill he must vote against
it unless the Prince of Wales surrendered the large revenues from the Duchy
of Lancaster and the Duchy of Cornwall, revenues which belonged to the
nation and only came to the heir-
apparent by custom.
Mr. Barnes declared the management
of these vast revenues was honey-combed
by a nest of parasites, who were battel-
ing on the nation under the very shadow
of the throne.
Mr. Balfour asked for information
if the objection of the honourable
member was that royalty was too expensive.
Mr. Barnes warmly responded that
royalty was not too expensive but too
immoral.
"Surely the labor representatives do

over the fire district. The morning broke

and rain is still falling steadily.

Winnipeg, July 23.���The Rainy River

yesterday that the city sent an engine

that the district was free from immediate

they do I was not until this moment
aware of the fact." observed Mr. Balfour.
"If Great Britain cannot support
royalty as becomes the dignity of a
wealthy empire," Mr. Balfour continued
amid applause, the labor party would
do well to find a government that would
be cheaper."
Mr. Barnes aired his peculiar views
at some length but without directly
taking up the gage of battle as to the
form of government that would be preferable to him and to his party, and concluded with a motion to reduce the vote
from three million one hundred thousand
pounds to nine hundred and fifty thousand pounds.
Any further debate this was defeated
by the very large majority of two hun-
red and six to twenty-six.
Then Kier Hardie stepped into the
limelight. He moved to omit from the
vote all the royal children with the exception of the Prince of Wales. Again
it was a strict party vote, the majority
against being exactly the same as on the
previous motion.

FABULOUS WEALTH LIES IN IHE INTERIOR
The Country Back of Prince Rupert
which the National Transcontinental Railway Will Open Up is Rich
Beyond Conception.
G. Lloyd Faulkner, of Vancouver,
has just returned from a trip up the
river to the Babine district and the interior where he has large interests in the
minerals of that great unknown country.
He called on the Optimist Monday
morning and divulged a vast amount of
information that is not only interesting,
but valuable to the investor. In the
course of his conversation Mr. Faulkner
told about the staking of one hundred
and eight square miles of coal lands in
the Copper River coal basin. These
lands were staked by him three years
ago, and he induced the National
Finance Co., to investigate the property
with the result that they took a half
interest in the coal fields and undertook
the development work. T. F- Langnoise,
of Vancouver, is the president of the
company, and he is one of the leading
financial men of western Canada. During
the last three years he has spent in
development work nearly $125,000.
They have now four tunnels, each 300
feet long, and for some months past they
have been working three shifts of men
in an effort to get a mine that is a mine.
They have so far succeeded that they are
ready to ship, as soon as transportation
is available, from 10,000 tons upwards
daily.   They have seams running from
seven to nine feet across and the clay
is of the highest grade steam and coke
coal. It is the best, and in fact, the only
coke coal in the interior or along the coast
of British Columbia.
Several high salaried engineers have
been sent in to the fields and they state
that at the present time the mines can
ship 10,000 tons per twenty four hours,
and that amount can be increased to any
quantity. There is sufficient coal in
sight now to last for hundreds of years.
The mines are situated about sixteen
miles from the G. T. P. main line at

The G. T. P. realize the great revenue
to be derived from the coal lands and
have taken out a charter for a thirty
mile branch line from a point near
Aldermere right into the coal, and while
on the way they will tap rich Bilver-lead
deposits on the Copper River slope of
the Hudson Bay mountains, which have
shown, by smelter tests, $205 to the ton.
The ore thus tested was packed out on
pack horses four years ago.

the appearance of a very rich mineral
country, besides the enormous coal
fields which run right through to the
south of the Skeena River with a water
grade all the way.
Smelter and Coke Ovens
Mr. Faulkner looks forward to the
time when there will be smelters established at the G. T. P. point near
Aldermere fcr the treatment of the ores
from four ranges of mountains fur which
his point is the hub. There will also
be coke ovens established there. The
Babine mountains lay to the ea t and
rise to a height of 10,000 feet; the
Hudson Bay mountains to the west rise
to a height of 12,000 feet; the Telkwa
mountains are to the south and the
Copper Rivor sange to the south-west,
while the Ninemile, Fourmile and Copper
River mountains are to the ncrth-west.
Big   Water    Power
Within the heart of this ocean of
mountains there is a water power that
is capable of producing 60,000 horse
power and the transmission lines will
be strung from this power over the ranges
to supply electric energy, at small cost,
to the many raining properties within
easy reach, and which are now out of the
holders in the packing company are
smiling over the reports that come from
the book-keepers who record the packs.
The Skeena has never before known
such a run and the canneries are away
ahead of any pack they have ever put
up.
Some of the fishermen have been
making as high us $50 to $100 on one
night's catch alone. The boats come in
loaded to the gunwhales and there is
no sleep for the fisherman.
On the river Naas the run has been
light up to date but the fish are coming
steadily and increasing every day.
John Wallace who was in the city yesterday said that all the canneries there
would get a full pack.
At Rivers Inlet there are more fish
than the canneries can handle.
This is good news in view of the very
light fishing on the Puget Sound and
on the Fraser. The Indians here are
making lots of money and this Fall will
have lots to spend.

The clue is a slight one but the government has given instructions that no expense shall be spared in hunting down

Toronto, July 21.���Mr. Joseph Martin
M. P. for East St. Pancras in the British house of commons, arrived in Toronto yesterday from New York.
The present government, he said,
was showing a regrettable lack of decision in conducting the campaign
against the lords. It had gone to the
people with the cry of "abolition of the
lords' veto," but now the entire situation was tied up by equivocation on the
question.

Vancouver seven. Seattle beat Tacoma
by a score of five to nothing.

London, July 22.���Telephone communication between London and New
York may be looked for before long if
the new submarine cable recently laid
across the English Channel by the British   post   office   answer   expectations.
This cable, which extends from Dover
to Cape Griz Nez is the first of its kind
laid in tidal waters. Tests so far made
have given every satisfaction.
The new cross-channel cable will be
opened for public use between London
and Paris as soon as the French gov-
ernament has completed connecting the
land lines.
Tests made lead to the belief that it
will revolutionize telephonic communication between England and the continent of Europe, and the improvements
effected will bring spoken communications between London and New York
within the bounds of possibility.
The new postoffice building in Vernon
will cost $50,000, and will be completed
in a year. ��� THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST

SPLENDID PROPERTY HAS BEEN

Eight Hundred Lots Will Be Put on
Sale���Location is an Ideal One for

Near at Hand.
Messrs. Gibson and Van Houten of
the Bitter Creel townsite syndicate are
in town today on business. The syndicate
have a beautiful property at the mouth
of Bitter Creek and Bear River containing about 800 lots in about 21
blocks. The land is good and it lays
well and if the mines develope as everyone believes they will, there will be a
good little town at Bitter Creek. All
the most promising prospects are almost
immediately adjoining Bitter Creek and
there is everything in its favor. The
syndicate are now applying for a crown
grant arid it is expected that in a short
time the lots will be for sale.
Workmen's Compensation.
The appointment of Sir William
Meredith to inquire into and report on
workmen's compensation is another step
in an endeavor to bring this question into
bounds. The subject of workmen's
compensation has produced a long list
of intricate problems to be settled by
judical authorities. In Canada we have a
large number of Acts operative in the
various provinces. They differ materially
and it requires an expert to figure the
question of liability in a given case in
a given province. The report to the
Ontario Government by Sir William
Meredith will undoubtedly prove to be
a valuable contribution to the subject.
The Monetary Times hopes that it
will contain a reference to the desirability of uniform legislation relating to
workmen's compensation in Canada. The
provincial statutes tend to make more
complicated an already involved matter.

to be derived from the coal lands and
have taken out a charter for a thirty
mile branch line from a point near
Aldermere right into the coal, and while
on the way they will tap rich silver-lead
deposits on the Copper River slope of
the Hudson Bay mountains, which have
shown, by smelter tests, $205 to the ton.
The ore thus tested was packed out on
pack horses four years ago.

holders in the packing company are
smiling over the reports that come from
the book-keepers who record the packs.
The Skeena has never before known
such a run and the canneries are away
ahead of any pack they have ever put
up.
Some of the fishermen have been
making as high as $50 to $100 on one
night's catch alone. The boats come in
loaded to the gunwhales and there is
no sleep for the fisherman.
On the river Naas the run has been
light up to date but the fish are coming
steadily and increasing every day.
John Wallace who was in the city yesterday said that all the canneries there
would get a full pack.
At Rivers Inlet there are more fish
than the canneries can handle.
This is good news in view of the very
light fishing on the Puget Sound and
on the Fraser. The Indians here are
making lots of money and this Fall will
have lots to spend.

country, besides the enormous coal
fields which run right through to the

grade all the way.
Smelter and Coke Ovens
Mr. Faulkner looks forward to the
time when there will be smelters established at the G. T. P. point near
Aldermere fcr the treatment of the ores
from four ranges of mountains for which
his point is the hub. There will also
be coke ovens established there. The
Babine mountains lay to the eat and

while the Ninemile, Fourmile and Copper

Within the heart of this ocean of

Toronto, July 21.���Mr. Joseph Martin
M. P. for East St. Pancras in the British house of commons, arrived in Toronto yesterday from New York.
The present government, he said,

This cable, which extends from Dover
to Cape Griz Nez is the first of its kind
laid in tidal waters. Tests so far made
have given every satisfaction.
The new cross-channel cable will be
opened for public use between London

Tests made lead to the belief that it

The Optimist
prospect stage. Many of these mines
have been opened up during the past
five years by some of the largest mining
men of the western states and western
Canada. The people who have spent
their money in this development workhave
not called upon the public for anything
through the flotation of stocks, but they
had, and have, sufficient confidence to
use their own cash and they have been
rewarded by uncovering some very large
propertie s.
Some of the Properties
One of these properties is owned by
the St. Eugene Mining Co., and is
situated on the Babine range; another
is on Ninemile mountain known as the
Silver Cup, and owned by G. T. P. con
tractors and Prince Rupert men; still
another is owned by J. H. Kinman, of
Vancouver, and is on Fourmile mountain;
still another is the property in the Telkwa
and Hudson Bay mountains and owned
by the Telkwa Mining & Development
Co. These mines are in a position today
to ship ore if they had transportation
facilities. The beauty of the silver lead
ore in these different ranges is that it
runs over 300 ounces of silver and 60 per
cent lead, especially in the Nine and
Fourmile mountains, and they are free
from zinc. This ore lays deep and in
large bodies and within one to three
miles of the G. T. P. main line. At the
present time the graders on the railway
can be seen from the mouth of the mines
in the distance.
Bonded   a   Property
Mr. Faulkner bonded a property
owned by Thos Stephenson and Jas.
Dyer, of Rossland, on July 16th, for
$45,000. This property is just 50 feet
from the Erie, which was bonded by Mr.
Kinman for $25,000. They are on the
same lead as the Erie where they have
four feet of ore running 356 ounces to
the ton of silver, from a test made by
W. W. Leach, Dominion Government
Geologist. Five thousand dollars are
paif in cash and the balance is due in
ten months. This property is one mile
from the G. T. P. main line, and will be
connected up with a tram from the mine
mouth.
Mr. Faulkner is representing the
Babine Mining Syndicate at the head
of which is E. W. Maclean, capitalist, of
Vancouver.
Want^TranaportationTB
The miners of this country are crying
out for transportation and as soon as the
G. T. P. line is completed to the end of
the second section, and long before it is
connected up with the eastern end at
Edmonton, they will receive an enormous tonnage in coal and minerals to
ship to Prince Rupert, and from there
sent out to the markets of the world
from these interior mines.
Fine Farming Land
Back of this mineral belt there lies
a farming country in the Nechacko
valley, Francis Lake, Ootze Lake, and
Pleasant Valley that will supply the
mining market with vegetables, beef
and dairy produce and there is no better
market in the world for the farmer than
the mining market.
Water Power is Staked
The Western Pacific Development Co.
has staked the Morricetown Falls and
will generate cheap power for the mines,
coke ovens and smelters which will be
built in the very near future. The
company is backed by almost unlimited
English capital and as soon as the Dominion Government will give them sufficient protection against the Indians
they will proceed with the work of development at once. As a matter of
fact they have an engineer from Montreal on his way out here now to prepare a report, and a million dollars or
more will be spent in the development.
Bought More Coal Lands
While on this last trip up the river
and into the interior Mr. Faulkner was
accompanied by Wm. Dalton, a mining
expert who has had charge of mines for
such men as Senator Clark, and has
labored in some of the largest mines in
the western States and Mexico and
Alaska. They purchased in the Bulkley
river district, about four and a half miles
from the G. T. P. railway some fifteen
square miles of coal lands. These coal
fields will be opened up by the use of
diamond drills, and they have been taken
up by the Babine Mining Co., which will
start to work this summer.
Peace River Wheat
Last winter Mr. Faulkner made a trip
through the Peace River, Athabasca and
McKenzie River country, and looks upon
the Peace River district as a great wheat
belt. There are 250,000,000 acres of
fine wheat land now available and ready
for the plough. While going in he met
500 settlers with 80,000 pounds of baggage
each. They were for the most part old
timers from Manitoba, Alberta and the
western states, and they deposited in the
banks of Edmonton $600,000. There
are two and a half times as much good
land north of Edmonton aa there is
south of it. In the same latitude and
under the same climatic conditions in
Russia there are 60,000,000 people raising wheat. In the Peace River the wheat
is three inches above ground before the
Manitoba wheat has started at all. All
this vast and fabulously rich territory
lies at the back of Prince Rupert, and
will have to come here for transportation
to the markets of the world, and it will
make this port one of the greatest on the
Pacific coast. Prince Rupert is worth
far more than a consideration from the
investors and capitalists. Fortunes are
waiting in this city for those who will
take them up.
SEVENTH-FIVE THOUSAND
People  in  Stewart  in  Three   More
Years Says T. A. Hopkins
T. A. Hopkins, one of the large mine
operators st Stewart, spent the last
couple of days in Prince Rupert looking
after his business interests. He just
recently returned from a three months
trip to the East in connection with the
Red Cliff Extension. He says the whole
country is talking Portland Canal. He
was surprised to find in Chicago and in
New York so much enthusiasm. In the
latter place they lnow more about
Portland Canal than the people up there
do. Everybody is talking about the
district the same as they did about
Cobalt a few years ago. As for Stewart
Mr. Hopkins said:- "Two years ago I
said there would be 75,000 people in
Stewart in five years. I still believe it.
He is very enthusiastic and believes
Stewart will in a short time be the
greatest mining camp in the world's
history.
Black Flies at Stewart
One of the Officers of the Venture had
his face pimpled as if attacked by
measles. He said it was the black flies
which awarmed at Stewart during the

DAUGHTERS OF THE EMPIRE
The suggestion of organizing a local chapter of the Daughters of the Emipre
is a laudable one and one which will doubtless meet with approval and success in
this city where patriotism and energy is plus. The object of the organization is to
inspire public interest in deeds of mercy and acts of charity. As one chapter aptly
puts it in their motto: "Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, in every
place you can." This same chapter, located in an eastern city of about the same
population as Prince Rupert, assisted to build and is maintaining a magnificent
hospital, raising thousands of dollars annually through the enterprise of its members.
Other chapters erect drinking fountains, feed the poor, assist the needy and lend a
helping hand to any act of charity.
The novel and ingenious ways in which funds are raised is one of the secrets
of its success. The chapters are all undenominational, free from creed and class.
It is for workers who are willing to work in community'and without selfishness.
There is a central organization and league papers for both the older and younger
members. Each chapter has three chief officers: A regent, secretary-treasurer and
standard bearer. Last year 86 new chapters were opened in Canada and 11 in the
United States.
In Prince Rupert there is opportunity for the organization of a first-class
chapter with several worthy objects for the interest and labor of the ladies of the
city.   It is to be hoped the ladies will start the movement.
THIRD TERM FOR TEDDY
Boom Launched by Former United
States Minister to Mexico
New. York, July 21.���A third term
boom for Theodore Roosevelt has been
started by former Ambassador Thompson, who represented the United States
in Mexico. He called on the colonel,
and after his conference he said to the
newspaper men that throughout the
west there was an undeniable sentiment in favor of another term.
" I employ 400 executive officers
throughout the west, " Thompson said.
"I asked them to ascertain the feeling
toward Rbosevelt. They unanimously
reported that everyone favored a third
term for Roosevelt. During my travels
I have not found a single Republican
who is not convinced that Roosevelt
must be named for the presidency if
the Democrats are to be beaten in 1912."

MASSET   NEWS
Read The   Optimist
Mr. Dean, formerly of Prince Rupert,
with his bride is in Masset <| and
will shortly publish a weekly newspaper
in the growing city on Graham Island.
The visit of Mr. Trodden, of New
Westminster, portends the construction
of a Dominion Government wharf in
Masset and the clearing out of the
Yakoun River, on Masset Inlet. Henry
Edenshaw and a number of men. are
engaged in cutting the piles for the new
wharf.
The survey parties are out on Naden
River and two other parties are surveying near Lawn Hill. Several cruising
parties are out looking over coal and
timber lands.
A Vancouver syndicate is preparing
to work the platinum and gold deposits
in the neighborhood of Cape Fife. They
will introduce modern machinery and
commence operations this summer.
The representatives of a Nanaimo
syndicate have returned to report on
their holdings on Naden River. They
report good deposits of bituminous coal
and will return with machinery for the
opening up of the coal deposits.
A representative of fifty, European
families visited Graham Island, with a
view to bringing out a large addition of
immigrants. He stated that the large
number of coal and timber locations
precluded him from obtaining the necessary land for pre-emption.
The necessity of a trial from Masset
Inlet to Virago Sound is apparent to the
residents of Graham Island, Every week
locators are compelled to wait for gasoline launches to carry them over forty
miles of water, while a trail from opposite Masset would connect the two
locations and bring the distance down to
ten miles of overland journeying.
Captain Stanley, a native of Masset,
disposed of his fine schooner, the Victoria
to Capt. Brown, of Vancouver. The
purchase price of the vessel was $1,500.
Captain Stanley constructed the schooner
at Masset. The Victoria left for Vancouver to receive a fifty-horse power
gasoline engine and will be used in the
halibut fisheries off Queen Charlotte
Islands.
The residents of Masset are eng
in plaher gold mining on a stream within
half a mile of the new townsite of Masset
Four miles have been recorded and
sluice boxes installed. The indications
are good and a pay streak has been uncovered which promises to yield gold
in quantities aurpassing anything yet
found on Graham Island.
It is reported a new syndicate purchased the town of Masset, adjacent to
the new wharf, and will place town lots
on the market at an early date. Already
a store, hotel, post-office, newspaper
office and a number of residents have
been erected. The clearing of streets
and making of a road to the wharf will
effect quite a change and should be
proceeded with at once.
Mr. Anderson, of the Provincial
Museum, and Mr. Judy, of the Brooklyn
Museum, were in Masset recently, engaged in painting the scenery and
securing specimens for their respectife
institutions. Mr. Judy is an artist of
ability and will place on the walls of
the Brooklyn Museum a painting o
Masset Inlet and the Indian village,
with its quaint totem poles and other
characteristics. He states that this work
of art will do more to advertisr Graham
Isoand than any other means yet devised.
Mr. Anderson, who is assistant curator
of the Provincial Museum, has a large
number of birds, eggs, seal, animals
and other specimens which will show the
different species exant on the island, from
Masset to North Island.

The "zebrass" has made its bow
to the public. This creature is a new
thing in the world, it never having
existed until a year ago. It is the
hybrid offspring of the African zebra
and the Texas donkey. There are at
the United States government experiment station at Bethesda, Md.,
six young zebrasses. Their sire is the
royal Abyssinian zebra which King
Menelik gave to President Roosevelt.
The latter turned the striped creature over to the experiment station,
and here the idea of developing a new
race of animals was conceived. These
six young ones are the nucleus. They
are regarded as offering great promise.
Certain of them combine the docility,
strength and utility of the mother
with the spirit, activity and beauty
of the father. The yearlings are already
larger than their mother. They are
beautifully built, and should be adapted to the many uses to which the
domestic   animal   is   put.

An   Amazing   People.
It is extraordinary how few Jews
there really are in England, considering their great influence and insistence, says London Opinion. Mr
Herbert Samuel is the one Jewish
member of the Ministry. There are
only four Jewish privy councillors,
and only four Jewish peers. Eight
Jews sit on the London County Council; between twenty and thirty are
members of the House of Commons.
British journalism has many Jews
among its members, and American
journalism more. The newspapers
in Paris are largely influenced by Jews;
in Berlin their influence is greater
still, and in Vienna it is predominant.
Finance is entirely controlled by Jews,
and hence it may be said that wars
are in their hands, and the fate of
nations. Yet there are only eleven
million Jews in the whole world, and
less than two hundred thousand in
London!   Truly   an   amazing   people!
Employment  Bureaus
Under the provisions of the Trade
License by-law Employment Bureaus
and Agencies will be taxed $5.00. It
is necessary to permit such concerns to
operate under the municipal clauses
act which fixes the license fee. The
council may regulate the rates to be
charged and in Prince Rupert the rate
has been fixed at 25c and the Employment
Bureau can charge either the employee or
the employer but not both. These restrictions are intended to curtail the
number of agencies and it is doubtful
if more than one or two will be es-
tablishd.
Looking   for   Power
The mayor and council and the city
engineer left this morning for Ecstall
and Wolfe Creek where they will inspect
the water powers. The party will be
gone all day and night and return some
time tomorrow.

(Special to the Optimist(
Campbelltown, July 23.���The thunder
storms and heavy rains of last night
made the refugees from the recent fire
miserable. The tents soaked through and
intensified the condition of the many
sick. Two of the sufferers went insane and
became violent.
Australia to Exhibit
Vancouver, July 23.���(Special)���A
cablegram received this morning states
that the Commonwealth of Australia
will send an exhibit to the Big Red
Apple show to be held here this autumn.
Canada began the twentieth century with the same population as the
United   States   began   the   nineteenth.
John Henry Doyle is a big husky fellow
with an aggresive face and an elastic
conscience. He carries one arm in a
plaster paris cast and a bunch of postal
note receipts in his hat. He has been
working the sympathies and pocket books
of the Prince Rupert public for some days,
and the police grew suspicious. Yesterday he was arrested and in his hat was
found receipts for $135 which he had
sent to himself at Vancouver. It was the
revenues from his Prince Rupert
harvest. He had seven dollars in his
clothes at the time. This morning he
pleaded guilty to the charge before
Magistrate Carss and was fined $5.00 or
30 days hard labor. He refused to pay
The chief offered to have the plaster
removed from his arm and a new one put
on but the prisoner would not stand for
it.
The Chief thinks he got off easy which
is evidence that the head of the police
department does not like to think
that Prince Rupert is easy.
A few weeks ago a similiar faker
worked the public here for several
hundred and later was arrested in Vancouver on a charge of highway robbery.

but claimed that he had merely done
his duty as a patriot of Spain.
