RUPERT  WITH CHEAP LIGHT
Jersey City, N. J., Aug 14.���"I am
wiry now for what I did and I hope
jjlayor Gaynor will recover. It was done
pn the spur of the moment and I acted
hat way because I had been robbed of
ny employment," said Jas. D. Gallagher
isailant of Mayor Gaynor.
"I wrote a letter to the mayor asking
i to give me back my job," continued
Gallagher.   "He refused to listen to me
knd I went home.   I got to thinking it
pver, and the more I thought the mad-
  I got until I resolved to get even.
ITou'd have done it yourself," said Gal-
.agher, suddenly turning upon Assistant
Prosecutor McCarthy, in whose presence
be made his statement to the United
Press.
"When   I   left   home   yesterday   I
did not intend to shoot anyone. Honest,
! was ready to look for another job. But
bought a paper, and the first thing
'. saw was 'Gaynor going on a vacation.'
t'hen I saw that and thought of him
; porterhouse steaks and me a bum,
It came to me strong that I ought to rid
he country of a man who refused to
right my wrong.
"I hunted up my revolver, the one I
id when I worked for the city, aliped it in my jeans, and went to the dock,
i wasn't going to make any mistake and
isked a preacher to show me Gaynor,
t'hen I got crazy seeing him standing
Eappy and smiling and prosperous, and I
anged away.   I was crazy mad, for I
pould see  nothing  but  Gaynor,   Gay-
por everywhere, and did not even know
got him until after I was pinched.
"I was fired from the dock department
because I opposed the graft. I was known
las a letter writer and I guess that made
them think I was a nuisance and ought
(to be canned.   When I thought of my
ill-treatment, I thought it was 0. K.
for me to right it, but now I'm  sorry I
did it.
"How's the mayor now?"
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, August 18.���Five thousand
people gathered last evening at Parliament buildings when Premier McBride
welcomed the distinguished visitor, Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, in the name of the
province. The illuminations were splendid. From a distance the buildings
looked like a huge elevation plan on a
dark blue background. All the lines
and prominent points in the architecture
were drawn in lines of light and shaded
WILL   VISIT   STEWART
[ President Hays and Party Will Make
The   Round   Trip
Mr. McMaster has received advices
J that the President Hays party, which is
I due  to   arrive   here  next   Wednesday
| afternoon, will continue on the Prince
Rupert to Stewart, returning on that
steamer  the   following  day.      A.   W.
Smithers,   chairman   of  the   board   of
directors of the   Grand Trunk Pacific,
who is of the party, is on his annual
visit on behalf of the British investors
and will go over all the road which now
carries steel.   This will be his first visit
to Prince Rupert.
Speaking at Winnipeg a few days ago
Mr. Smithers stated that the general
feeling among the directors was one of
felief that the recent strike trouble
had been adjusted, the more so as they
had entirely supported President Hays
in his stand, which they regarded as
fair to both sides. Mr. Smithers, however, considered that such difficulties
were likely to prove injurious to the
Dominion, arid destroy the confidence
among capitalists which had made
Canada of late a pet subject for investment at easy rates.
here and there with color effects. The
illuminations of the city were on an equally liberal scale and the celebration was
what it promised to be���the grandest
old Victoria has ever made.
Sir Wilfrid had a busy time of it receiving the many deputations. One
after the other they crowded upon him
but all were received cordially and went
away with the smiles of winners.
This morning he drove over' the city
with the Lieutenant-governor.everywhere
being heartily cheered along the line
of his route. His Honor T. W. Paterson
the lieutenant-governor entertained Sir
Wilfrid at luncheon at his residence,
many of the leading Liberals of the
province being invited to meet the
premier.
Sir Wilfrid and party leave late tonight
for Prince Rupert on the steamer Prince
George. Many people are making the
trip from here and Vancouver and all
the accommodations on the boat had
been reserved before noon today.
NEW YORK HAS
A LARGE FIRE
WHOLE    BUSINESS   BLOCK    ENTIRELY   WIPED   OUT
Two Thousand Terrified Families
Turned Into Streets���One Fireman
Killed���Fire Started in Cork Warehouse   and   Spread   Rapidly.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, August 18.���Last night
a fire broke out in the warehouse district
at the foot of Water St. and did damage
roughly estimated at a million. It
wiped out a whole block of business
buildings and turned two thousand
terrified families into the street.
The fire broke out in a cork warehouse
and the flaming cork being carried by
the winds made the fire spread rapidly.
There was a large fire-fighting force
on hand but the best that could be done
with the aid of water towers and every
other appliance was to confine the
flames to the one block.
The people got out of the burning
buildings with marvellous alacrity, none
so far as know, being injured. But in
the rescue work one fireman was killed
and another badly hurt.
Candidate   was   Jailed
Cordova, Alaska, Aug. 11.���William O'Connor, Labor candidate for
delegate to congress in Tuesday's
election, is out on bail today awaiting
trial for fighting with Nick Welsh, a
local contractor. They quarreled over
political questions,and though defeated at the polls, O'Connor won the
physical contest with ease.
THEIR   NEW    UNIFORMS
Saturday Will Be a Proud Day For
Prince  Rupert  Policemen
PRINCE RUPERT
MAN ARRESTED
ARTHUR SILLS TO ANSWER TO
CHARGE OF FORGERY
Brought Before Police Court in
Vancouver.���Drew a Cheque on
Bank Of Commerce Here and
Asked   Mr.   Christie   to   Cash   it.
The whole of the police force of Prince
Rupert will don their new uniforms
early on Saturday morning, and Chief
McCarvell will hold special drill to instruct them how to dress up on parade
and military tactics in handling large
crowds. The uniform is a neat army blue,
with narrow scarlet stripe down the seam
of the trousers and gilt buttons. But
the whole force today is as fussy and
nervous as a girl on the eve of her first
ball, for the helmets have not arrived.
Many Indians in Town
Over two hundred Indians are visiting
Prince Rupert. They come from the
Skeena river canneries and will remain
here until Sunday, when they will go
to their homes on the islands.
Vancouver, August 14.���Charged with
forging a cheque for $26 on July 26,
Arthur Sills again appeared in the police
court this morning, and was again remanded for a week for more evidence.
The teller at the Bank of Commerce
gave evidence of the cheque being
drawn by Sills. He did not remember
him calling in on July 19 and asking
the manager to wire Prince Rupert
about his banking account.
A man named Hicks, in whose favor
the cheque was drawn, said he drove
Sills about to several places during the
day of July 20. Sills paid him cash,
but returned in the evening with the
cheque which he wanted cashed. Hicks
had only $16 on him which he handed
to Sills retaining the cheque, against
which he understood Sills to say there
was $75 in the bank.
Sills who went into the witness box
swore that he was interested in some
land on the Skeena river, and that a
Mrs. McDonald had paid him a cheque
for $200 for staking and advertising
it for her. He came to Prince Rupert
on a Sunday morning and asked Mr.
Christie the bank manager there to
cash it, but he could not do so. Thinking the money would be placed to his
credit by July 20, he drew the cheque
fully confident that it would be met.
He came to Vancouver because he had
another deal on here.
Sills was crossexamined by Mr. Kennedy to show that he was aware Mrs.
McDonald had no account, but this he
denied. He admitted having served
terms of imprisonment in Bellingham,
Victoria and Kamloops, one of the
sentences being for forgery.
Sills agreed to the adjournment and
said he wanted to give every facility
to have the matter cleared up.
SUPPLY GAS
BY DECEMBER
TSIMPSEAN   POWER    CO    WILL
START WORK IMMEDIATELY
R. Brutinel Here to Secure a Site for
The Plant and Start Things Going.���Other Schemes Will Be Advanced Alto.
R. Brutinel, of Edmonton representing the Tsimpsean Light and Power Co.,
arrived in the city yesterday and will
remain here for some time.. It is the
intention of the company to commence
operations upon their gas plant at once
and Mr. Brutinel is here for the purpose
of securing the site and getting the work
under way. They will have the gas gong
through their mains to the consumersiby
the end of November or the first of
December. At the same time the company will advance their power, street
railway and other schemes. Their policy
throughout will be one of harmony with
the people as outlined by Mr. Brutinel
last winter when he was here. Further
particulars of the plans of the company
will appear in tomorrow's issue.
Police   Court   Items
In the police court items yesterday
'the name of the man Storck who is
charged with frequenting Comox avenue
resorts was slightly misspelled which
might have confused his identity with
that of a prominent citizen were the
charge not so disgusting. Storck came to
town some months ago to work as a
printer but has not been employed at
the trade for some time.
Neil McKay charged A. S. Levine
in the police court this morning with
assault. The assault is alleged to have
taken place in front of the Premier hotel
on Tuesday evening last. The case was
adjourned until Friday.
Jos. Le Blanche, who was charged
with selling liquor without a license
has jumped the town when he did not
answer when called yesterday a warrant
was issued for his arrest, but he has gone.
Lost His Way
A prominent G. T. P. official whose
office is on the wharf got lost in the forest
on Centre Sound last night and was seen
going into one of the steamship offices
where he enquired his way home.
No Council Meeting
The council adjourmed last night
until next week as the balance of this
week is taken up with various duties.
Can Be Installed and the Town
Lighted by Middle of December.���
Company Will Build Their Own
Wharf���Mr.   Waller   Coming.
The electric light proposition which
Mr. Durant submitted to the council
a couple of nights ago was practically
the same as he laid before the Board
of Trade last fall. Since then he has
put a great deal of work on it, along
with Mr. Waller and they have now
got the thing in good shape and ready
for the financial men to take up. As
was stated in these columns before Mr.
Waller, of Vancouver, will be here in a
few days and he will interview the
council and lay before them the full
details. It is expected that Mr. Waller
will furnish the capital necessary for
developing the power.
The scheme is simply to instal a gas
producer plant for generating electricity.
The company propose to supply the
power to the city at a cost which will
e.iable the council to distribute it to
the consumers and cover all their expenses and still give it to the consumers
at a reasonable price. Mr. Waller has
a site on this island where he can establish his plant and also have a wharfage on the water front for receiving coal
and other supplies.
The company is taking all the chances
as they propose to give the city a price
on the power delivered at the end of a
distributing line. The company will
start at that work and the building
for their plant immediately the council
gives them a contract. Nearly all their
machinery can be had on short notice
as much of it is stocked. Thus there will
be no delay. Tbe biggest job will be
building the wharf and the house for
the plant.
Mr. Durant told the Optimist yesterday that they could be ready to supply
electric light to the whole town by
December 15, providing their plans are
accepted at once. The council will have
to hustle some to have their sub-station
erected and pole lines in by that time,
and it is doubtful if the temporary
steam plant spoken of can be installed
any sooner as the plant has to be ordered and shipped in the same as any
other plant. After Mr. Waller arrives
further particulars will be given.
THE  WARD   BY-LAW
Fulton Street is Taken as the Dividing Line of the Town
Vancouver Fails to Score
Vancouver, August 18.���(Special)���
The league baseball games played yesterday resulted as follows:-
Seattle three, Vancouver nil
Spokane six, Tacoma one.
Fire Started by Lightning
(Special to the Optimist)
Portland, Ore., August 18.���The Cascade Forest Reserve for miles is a mass
of flame today. The fire was started by
lightning and made such headway that
it was soon beyond control, although
the troops were called out to fight it.
The ward by-law was introduced
by Aid. Pattullo at last night's council
meeting. It was given two readings and
is now in the hands of the committee
of the whole. The by-law divides the
town into two wards, with Fulton street
as the dividing line. The wards will be
known as east of Fulton and west of
Fulton. The reason Fulton street was
chosen as the dividing line is that it
is almost a natural divisional line and
gives as near an equal division of the
assessment as possible. Some of the
aldermen suggested McBride street,
but that would throw all the heavy
assessment of the business district in
the west ward, and it would also give
thc west the majority of representatives
in the council. The act calls for the wards
to be made according to the assessment.
Aid. Pattullo informed the Optimist
that the aldermen would be glad to
receive any suggestions from the citizens
if they can figure out any better scheme. THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

The   Old   Cat
'Twas at the hour of tea time,
And little Tommy (four)
Had filled with milk a saucer,
And set it by the door.
And then he crept out softly,
And peeped outside the gate,
And   muttered   with   impatience,
"Oh! why is  puss so late?"
Then  soon  along  came  grandma,
Who'd just arrived by train;
And   when   she   saw   the   saucer
Asked   Tommy   to   explain.
Then   he,  in   words  so  simple,
Said  "Grandma,  it is five,
And  father said  at tea  time
The old cat would arrive."

THE GRADING CONTRACT
The decision of the city council is awarding the grading contract on Eleventh
street and Beach Place to Contractor Swanson, establishes a precedent which may
prove a little awkward in the future. The city engineer bid $2.00 per yard for rock
and 60c per yard for earth while Swanson's bid was $2.25 per yard for rock and one
dollar per yard for earth. On the estimated measurements the city engineer's tender
was several hundred dollars cheaper than Swanson's although his bulk tender,
which included a large percentage for contingencies, was nearly $200 more. The
price per yard for excavating is a very live topic among contractors and property
owners just now and it would have been very interesting to see what the city could
make it under day labor. It was probably wise for the council not to tie the city
engineer up to a small contract just now when he has many other more important
matters requiring his attention, but being the lowest tenderer per yard in this
instance and not getting the contract may cause a squabble later when the city
council may want him to take over a larger contract if he should be the lowest
again. A contractor would have a reasonable complaint.
The city council should announce their policy in having the city engineer
tender. If he is not to be awarded the contract except under special circumstances
the fact should be announced in fairness to the contractors.
THE DAUGHTERS OF THE EMPIRE
The ladies of the city are to be congratulated upon the formation of a local
chapter of the Daughters of the Empire. Like all organized movements for doing
good it is a benefit to those who give as well as to those who receive. Conceived in a
spirit of patriotism the work and efforts of the ladies is to do something that will
better humanity by helping in some simple or uncommon way the individual or a
community. To do all the good possible is an aspiration which is most credible to
the ladies and whatever is the particular object adopted by Queen Mary Chapter
in Prince Rupert deserves the assistance and hearty response of everyone.

The council got a bill this week that
made most of the aldermen sit up and
take notice. It was from the provincial
government and represented the governments claim against the current revenue
of this town for this year. The council
also received a report from the M. H. O.
dealing with the bad meat problem.
All the members were present at last
night's session with the mayor in the
chair.
A communication was received by
the council from the Minister of Finance
of B. C, enclosing the claim of the province against the city. The claim amounted to $15,334.04. This did not
include the amount already advanced
for the electric light. The bill included
the first assessment made for the city
amounting to $905.55 and the portion
of realty taxes due to the government,
amounting to $14,428.48.
This sum should all be paid out of
this years current revenue.
The communication   was   referred to
the Finance committee.
Bad  Meat
The M. H. O. reported that he had
investigated the bad meat question and
found that the quality of meat being
sent here was very inferior. He recommended also that butchers be requested to furnish cold storage on board
ship or bring in live cattle and slaughter
them here.
Aid. Hilditch moved that the clerk
write the M. H. O. informing him that
the council requires him to enforce the
by-law referring to tainted meat and
that the council has nothing to do with
cold storage on boats.
Aid. Pattullo suggested that the mayor
take the matter up with the M. H. O.
and give him the necessary instructions.
The finance committee recommended
the payment of an account for $227.80
to the Board of Trade to pay the salary of|
night patrolman who was engaged before the city was incorporated.
Aid. Pattillo moved that the bill be
paid, Aid. Mobley seconded the motion
and it carried.
Aid. Pattullo asked leave to introduce
a by-law dividing the city into wards.
It was read a first time and carried.
The rules were suspended and the bylaw was read a second time.

(Special to the Optimist)
Hoboken, Aug. 18.���Alarming rumors
spread during the night that Mayor
Gaynor's condition had undergone ' a
sudden change and he was not expected
to live. The greatest uneasiness was
manifested, a large crowd gathering
around St. Mary's hospital. At last the
long-expected bulletin from his medical
advisers appeared, and this was reassuring. It said the mayor had not
passed so good a night but no bad symp-
tons had appeared. This was the first
bulletin issued since the shooting that
did not report progress on the part of the
patient.

Editor Optimist,���I see there bai
not yet been any answer made by Mayor
Stork to my letter to you. I was pleased
that you followed the matter up in your
editorial and covered a number ot points
that I overlooked when writing. The
ground you take is quite right. It is not
for me to take the responsibility ol an
action in court. The mayor has been
elected to serve the people, and to serve
them in a proper legal way, and if be
has rendered himself liable to be unseated, or disqualified himself to sit
under the provisions of the Municipil
Clauses Act which is quite clear on tin
point, it is for himself to see to it as)
not place the city in a position whereis
actions could be called into quest*
on legal grounds, and business transacted by him become null and void
After all that has been said on the telephone question, he will not place himself in the position that the by-law which
may bear his signature or the debenture!
which he may have to sign in that connection, may be declared illegal*
Ir may also be found that unless
mayor is proved to be properly
that when the city tries to sell debentures for proposed street work,
that the parties who purchase the debentures may at the last minute be
advised against the purchase of them on
the grounds that the mayor is disqualified and therefore debentures
signed by him woukd not be gow-
We know how careful and nervous
financial people are when they Jen
money and every point will be looked up*
Should anything of lhat *****
at the last minute there would be ��
in proceeding with much needed W

already. .���...

LAWYERS' FEES
WERE MILLIONS
UNITED   STATES   SCANDAL   IN
INDIAN   AFFAIRS
Lawyers Retained By Indians Gobbled Up the Oysters Handing
Their Clients the Shells.���Investigation Unearthing Great Graft
Sulphur, Okla., August 14.���Lawyers'
expenses accounts running as high as
$3000,000; a single fee already paid
amounting to $750,000, and contingent
fees still pending that would aggregate about $5,000,000 figured in the investigation of Indian land affairs by
the special committee appointed by the
house   of   representatives.
It was pointed out that the Indians
had never received large amounts of
money due them without having "to
come across" in the shape of fees and
although they employed regular lawyers on yearly salaries extra fees were
constantly paid for the employment of
extra  counsel.
The special fee gf $750,000 was paid
several years ago to Mr. J. F. Mc-
Murray and his law partners, after they
had prosecuted what are known as the
citizenship cases, which, it was stated,
kept off the rolls 32,000 claimants who
wanted to participate in the claims
against the government.
By the winning of this suit it was
explained that the value of the property to the Indians who remained on
the rolls was enhanced $16,000,000, on
a basis of $5,000 for each of the 32,-
000 claimants kept off. The scale of the
property and the division of the proceeds is still being fought by the Indians.

Victoria, August 14.���"The dredging
and other mining operations of the
Yukon Gold Company in the Yukon
district this year are proving very successful and the season is far from being
ended. The gold output will largely
exceed that of last year when we paid
dividends of 10 per cent to our shareholders. All the estimates of our experts
both as to production as well as the richness of the ground has been surpassed
by actual results. We have been three
or four years getting things into shape.
Until the banks of new ditches settle
water can only be turned in gradually
before attaining a full flow. Next year
I have no doubt we will exceed this
season's out put by at least 50 per cent.
Out plants will be increased from year to
year as we have enough ground to last
for many years."
This was the announcement made by
M. Robert Guggenheim when visiting
Vancouver. Mr Guggenheim is a son
of Daniel Guggenheim of New' York,
the multi-millionaire head of the Guggenheim family and president of a. .score
of mining companies in the United States

president of the American Smelting &
Refining Company, one of the largest
corporations in existence. Mr. Guggenheim represents the family interests in

RUPTURE WITH
ROOSEVELT
PRESIDENT TAFT AND TEDDY
HAVE FALLEN OUT
The Colonel Will Openly Join the
Insurgents and Probably Lead
Them.���Rupture Followed Taft's
Appointment   of   Sherman
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, August 18.���That there
is an open rupture between Roosevelt
and Taft, and all possibility of the former
endorsing the administration, is the
opinion of all the political leaders here,
following the reports in local newspapers
that such a break has occurred, following
the appointment of Sherman as chairman of thc Republican convention at
Saratoga, this being a direct rebuff to
Roosevelt. Most of them are predicting
a division of tha state Republicans that
is likely to have most disastrous results.
Oyster Bay, August 18.���Roosevelt's
former lieutenants congregated here
early this morning and are now in conference with their chief. It is now stated
that Roosevelt will openly join the
insurgents, but so far nothing of thc
conference has been given out for
publication.

made a dash for a logging train for

fanning the flames, which were travelling at the rate of five miles an hour,
and the logging train could only keep
just ahead with the danger of breaking
down under such pressure.

Worth    of    Gold
Dawson, Aug. 14. ��� The Yukon
Territory has shipped to the outer
world $150,000,000 in virgin gold.
The greater part of this has been produced within 50 miles of Dawson and
perhaps 90 per cent within 100 miles.
Klondike's out put is actually increasing, whereas some of the other
camps of the north are experiencing a
falling off in yield. The output of this
camp last year was $4,000,000, and this
year it is expected to reach' $5,000,-
000. Possibly this pace will be maintained for years.
The officials figures of the returns
secured for the British Yukon are
based chiefly on the royalty returns.

WALLACE'S
WHO'S WHO IN CANADA
il i-
H.S.
WALLACE
Co., Ltd.
Fulton St. and Third Ave.
Through the courtesy of Fred Cook,
Ottawa correspondent of the London
Times, the Optimist is in receipt of a
copy of "The Canadian Who's Who."
published by the great journal. The
Times was exceedingly fortunate in
securing the services of Mr. Cook as
editor of the work. Although his name
is not found in its pages he is known
throughout the Dominion and probably
is acquainted or knows of every Canadian
of prominence for a generation or two.
He was twice Mayor Cook of Ottawa
and for many years up to the present
has occupied a seat in the press gallery
at the house of commons.
But even with such editorial excellence at its head the collection of such
cyclopoedic information in a new country
with no such previous records for reference, must have been a work of
extreme difficulty in the first place,
and in the second the exercise of nice
judgment in discriminating who was
entitled to be a who is such a publication.
Many of such directories of celebrities have been attempted, and many
if not all on this continent have been
worse then worseless in that they are
misleading. The publishers started at
the wrong end. Instead of attempting
the publication of a work of substantial
value as a book of reference for all,
they tried to make it a book of profit
for the publishers only. The representatives of one of such enterprises is in
Prince Rupert today. He called upon
a business man, writes out the biography and at the close of the interview
mentions what it will cost for the biography to appear in the book.
The London Times, on the contrary,
went to a very large expense in securing
the data for'The Canadian Who's
Who." and published it without asking
or receiving any monetary consideration from those whose names find a place
in it. The editor does say in his foreward
that perchance the name of some prominent Canadian has been omitted, but
this might happen because those gentlemen failed to answer the circulars sent
to them. This independent impartiabil-
ity makes the work of value. It sets
a hallmark, so to speak, upon the twenty-
five hundred or so of people whose
graphies are given in the book, and no
Canadian reference library is complete
without it.
COMING   ON   OPERATOR
Party   of   Engineer*    Making   Trip
From Edmonton
Vernor W. Smith received a telegram
from Mr. Stewart, of Foley, Welch &
Stewart, that the engineer party would
reach Hazelton last night and asking
that a boat be there to meet them. The
Operator was due there yesterday and
left at seven o'clock last night with the
party for Kitselas.
The party was met at Hazelton by
G. C. Van Arsdol and Collingwood
Schrieber, chief engineer of the Dominion
government.
Whether they will leave the boat at
Kitselas and take to the line is not
known here. In either case they will
be here on or before Saturday.
HAZELTON  DOING   WELL
People Are Looking for Busy Winter
When Proipector* Return
J. E. Roerig returned from Hazelton
yesterday and is very optimistic over
the progress being made up the river.
He states that business has been good
up there and that all the people are
well satisfied. They are looking for a
brisk time this coming winter when the
several hundred prospectors and land
stakers now on the hills will return to
town for a few months. The merchants
have been buying heavily in anticipation of the rush. Their orders have been
much larger than ever before. Speaking
of the country Mr. Roerig said that it
is looking fine. The garden stuff is now
at its best and the people are cultivating
everything. He looks for a big town
in that vicinity with a large population
on   the   farm   lands.

Bisbee, Ariz., Aug., 17.���Victor Anderson, a miner, aged 30, won $5 last
night by drinking a quart of whisky in
eight minutes. His relatives will get
the $5, as Anderson died in a half hour.
An oration is a speech gone to seed.
The  harvest  of thought   is  success.

Two more arches are going up, one
on Second avenue and Eighth street
and one opposite the City Hall. Both
are independent enterprises born of the
civic pride the visit of Sir Wilfrid has
awakened. The City Hall is being erected by the Skeena River Indian fishermen,
and is a substantial structure with
stately lines. This is to be painted and
not hidden in evergreens. The other is
the work of the French-Canadians and
is to be comewhat elaborate in decoartion
mottoes, portraits and so forth. With
three arches where only one was planned
one may expect the citizens to be stimulated to fresh energy in the decoration
of their buildings.

FLIGHT   FROM   PARIS
Two   Famous   Aviators   Competing
For  Daily  Mail  Prize
(Special to the Optimist)
London, August 18.���John Moissant
tried twice to reach London in the last
part of his flight from Paris today, but
an accident to his engines prevented.
He got as far on the way as Upchurch.
Paris, August 18.���Latham left Paris
today in an attempt to fly to London
for the London Daily Mail prize of five
thousand pounds. He ascended at Issy
this morning at six o'clock, taking a
straight course east. After seventy miles
he was forced to alight, the trouble with
his motor still continuing.

it's something you can never repay.
