Paint Greet Premier.
Public Luncheon Given in Dominion
Hall at Which Sir Wilfrid Delivers
Address.���Opens Vancouver Fair
Speaks to Ten Thousand People
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, August 17.���Sir Wilfrid
Laurier arrived yesterday on his first
visit to the coast in nine years. Ten
thousand spectators lined the streets
from the railway station to Dominion
Hall, where the premier attended a
public luncheon. In the great procession were leading men of all political
creeds, politics being a tabooed subject
during the stay of the distinguished
visitor.
What lent color and picturesqueness to
the scene was the army of Indians in
the parade. Every tribe on the coast
was represented by its braves, all in
war paint and gaily bedizened.
After the public luncheon, at which
I Sir Wilfrid made a comparatively brief
but brilliant address, he was escorted
] to the exhibition grounds at Hastings
land went through the formality of
j declaring Vancouver's first annual ex-
I hibition open to the public. '
In the evening the premier addressed
ten thousand people in the Horse Shoe
j building.
George Cowan, the Conservative
j member for Vancouver, met Sir Wilfrid
1 up the line to extend a welcome to him
j to the city.
The apple show is being held in the
I Horse Shoe  building and not at the
exhibition.
Vancouver, August 17.���In his speech
at the Horse Show building last night
before ten thousand people, Sir Wilfrid
Laurier ably defended the Asiatic policy
of the government by a clear statement
of his belief that nothing further could
be done in the way of restriction and that
he was confident at least a majority of
Canadians agreed with him that the
present regulations of Oriental immigration were sufficient.
Minister of Railways Graham, and
Minister of Mines Templeman both
spoke before the premier.
Methodist   Conference
Victoria, August 17.���Three hundred
delegates are attending the session of

'LIGHTING A KNOTTY PROBLEM
Operating Expenses Estimated at $17,231 per Year.
Revenue is Still Indefinite.���Proposition Received from Mr. Durant to Put in a Gas Producer
Plant and Furnish Power
The city engineer reported, to the
council last night that he had obtained
an estimate on the operating expenses
of the temporary lighting plant. His
report was as follows:-
"I have obtained from the proprietor
of the Sash and Door Factory a proposal
to rent the boiler and engine now in
use at the factory to the corporation for
the purpose of generating power for
electric lighting.
I estimate the cost of operating the
plant aB follows:-
Rental   of   boiler   and  engine
for one year  3,650.
Fuel, 912 1-2 tons   7,300.
Water, oil, waste etc    200.
$11,160.00.
Two engineers at $225 per
month     2,700.
One laborer   1.000.
One superintendant    1,800.
$5,600.
Maintenance of pole lines etc.. 250.
Depreciation       331.
$581.
Total   Cost      $17,231.
Income
Assuming that  80 h.p.  is  available
the city could supply 600 carbon lamp!
to consumers, or 100 Tungsten lamps.
Time may be taken as 7 hours per day
for the winter months, and 3 hours per
day for summer months.
With a charge of 16 per k. w. hour the
gross receipts for winter months would
be $11,497.50 and for summer months
$4,927.29 or a total of $16,424.79,
leaving a balance of $806.21 ro be charged
against the street lighting account.
With reference to the plant to be
located at the foot of McBride street,
and estimated to cost $30,000. The
annual expense of operation, including
depreciation, would be $18,272, the installation of this plant would require
six months time so that litt.e revenue
would be obtained the first year. Assuming that 2000 lamps are in after the
first year, the revenue would be about
$32,000.
Wm. Mahlon Davis City Engineer
In connection with the lighting question Aid. Smith said he had asked a
local citizen to be present and outline
a proposition for supplying the city
with electric power at the city limits.
The company would ask for a ten year
contract and give the city an option to
purchase the plant at 50 per cent of the
cost. They could instal their plant in
four months.
Mr. Durant was asked to speak.
He said he had submitted his proposition
to a Vancouver man for financial backing. They proposed to put in a gas
producer plant starting with a 300 K. W.
plant and increase it as required. They
could furnish power at a cost of 12c per
K. W. hour.
Mr. Waller was the man who waa with
him and he had accepted the proposition
and would be here next week on the

HALF MILLION HOMELESS
Great Suffering in Japan From the
Continued Floods There.
(Special to the Optimist)
Tokio, August 17.���Despite all the
efforts of the government over half a
million people are still homeless and a
thousand are known to have lost their
lives in the great floods. Rain is still
falling in many places and many must
be dying from starvation as it is not
always possible to reach them with
government supplies.
One thousand and fifty houses have
suffered serious damage in Tokio alone.
FIRST GRADING CONTRACT LET
Work  is  Small   But  Will
Start at Once.
Aid. Hilditch Stood for Day Labor,
But Other Aldermen Who Know
What Such Work Costs, Voted for
The   Contract System.
There was hair flying in the council
chamber last night. The city engineer
recommended that certain tenders be
accepted for grading and planking Tenth
and Eleventh streets and Beach Place.
Aid. Hilditch was opposed to the report and claimed that the engineer's
tender on the rock was the lowest. There
was a long and at times warm discussion, but finally Aid. Hilditch was
the only one who wanted the day labor
system adopted. Aid. Smith, a man who
has had very wide experience in such
matters, said they couldn't begin to do
the work as cheaply as a contract.
If others desired to try an experiment
he would be satisfied as this was a small
piece of work and only a few hundred
dollars would be lost. It would prove
that the day labor system is not workable here.
Reports from the city engineer were
received.
He recommended that La Trace be
awarded the contract for the plank roadway at $782.45.
That Swanson get the grading contract at $3,822.
The report was adopted.
The city engineer's tender was $4000.
In this sum was included 15 per cent for
contingencies. Aid. Hilditch said if
that 15 per cent was cut off the engineer
would be much the lowest. He would
prefer to have the work done by day
labor as it was the cheaper. He moved
that the engineer be instructed to proceed with the work at once by day labor.
Aid. Lynch, Pattullo and Mobley
were opposed to Aid. Hilditch, and favored the contract system.
Aid. Naden supported Aid. Hilditch.
Aid. Smith said he would like to see
the experiment of day labor tried as he
was of the opinion from his experience
that the contingencies would amount to
more than most people expected. It
might cost section one a few hundred
dollars, but it would be an interesting
experiment.
Aid. Lynch said that day labor was
not so cheap. He would like to have
the council look a little further into the
day labor work that has already been
done at the corner of Seventh street and
First avenue. He believed that for the
money spent 75 yards of rock had been
mucked and 75 yards more broken.
They could compare this with what it
had cost and it would be easy to figure
the actual expense out.
The mayor was very much opposed
to the city undertaking this work.
Aid. Smith said that he was quite
satisfied that the city could not do the
work as cheap as the contractors. It
would be easy to figure out how much the
work wil cost.
Aid. Pattullo moved that the recommendation of the city engineer be
accepted and that the contractors mentioned be asked to sign up their contracts. Aid. Smith seconded the motion.
���Carried.
The finance committee will make the
financial arrangements and the mayor and
clerk will sign and seal the contract.
Aid. Hilditch was the only one to
vote against the motion.
PROGRESS MADE ON RAILROAD
Officials Returning From Trip
Over Whole Line.
Will Be Back Here About S aturday. -
Road Will Be Completed to Tete
Jaune Pass and Trains Running
That Far Westward  Next   Spring
B. B. Kelliher, chief engineer of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, J. W. Stewart of
the contracting firm of Foley, Welch
and Stewart and Mr. Lewis, a companion
of Mr. Stewart who went along just for
the trip, arrived at Fort George Friday
of last week and are expected to return
to Prince Rupert next Saturday in time
to take part in the Laurier celebration.
The party has been making a trip of
inspection of the whole of the line Irom
Edmonton and Mr. Stewart is authority
for the statement that his company's
contract extending to Tete Jaune Cache
will be completed in early summer and
trains running as far west as the Cache
in a year from now. This was welcome
news to the people of Fort George, as
goods can then be rafted down the river
at very little expense.
From the eastern end the steel will
reach the Athabasca river, at the entrance
to the Yellowhead, by the middle of September. A total of 2,600 men and 800
teams are working w st of the McLeod
river to Athabasca. Splendid progress is being made, and it is the opinion
of the railway men that the tracklayers
will reach the banks of the Athabasca by
early December. It is expected the steel
will reach Prairie creek by October 1st.
The concrete work on the bridge over
Prairie creek is now ready for the superstructure.
G. C. Van Arsdol, the pass finder,
engineer of the Prince Rupert division,
met the party at Fort George and is
returning with them. They took a
pack train of twenty horses and set out
for Hazelton, proceeding leisurely and
carefully inspecting the line as surveyed.
About sixty miles from here they will
take a construction train and come into
Prince Rupert on it.
ORIENTAL   IMMIGRATION
Sir Wilfrid Considering Advisability
Of Doubling Chinese  Head  Tax
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, August 17.���After a petition read by Delegate Pettipiece, of
the trade and labor congress, on oriental immigration, this morning, Sir
Wilfrid intimated that he was considering the raising of the Chinese head tax
to one thousand dollars.
UNIQUE FEATURE OF   ARCH
Will Be Arranged to Exhibit Two of
Our   Important   Industries
Professor Babcock will have a unique
idea inserted into the arch he is erecting
at the foot of Sixth street. On either
side there will be panels filled in with
sheet glass. In the receptacle thus formed
will in one be eight or ten fine salmon
trout swimming about; in the other will
be specimens of minerals carrying gold

NOW WHALERS
PAY    MILLION     DOLLARS     FOR
PACIFIC  WHALING  CO.
Fleet of Schooners to Be Built For
Shark and Halibut Fishing Which
Will Be Followed in Addition to
Whaling.���New   Company.
Victoria, ���Messrs. Mackenzie and
Mann have taken an option to purchase the Pacific Whaling company, and
will pay approximately one million dollars for the concern.
A new company will be floated in
London, capitalized at several million
dollars, and a fleet of schooners will be
built to engage in shark and halibut
fishing in addition to whaling, the shark
fishing enterprise being the first established in the waters of the continent.
Several new whaling steamers will be
ordered in Norway and a schooner fleet
built here.
Large schools of sharks from 25 to 30
feet long are found off Vancouver Island, and these will be treated at the
coast whaling stations, oil being manufactured from the liver and guano from
the carcases.
Cold storage plants will be installed
at Rose Harbor on Queen Charlotte Islands and at Sechart and Kyuquot on
the Vancouver Island coast for treatment of halibut.
The new company to be formed will
be the first Canadian organization to
engage in the halibut industry in these
waters, which for many years past has
been monopolized by American fishermen. A strong effort will be made to
win back the trade. The shark fishing
industry to be established will be the
first of its kind in the new world. It
is stated that the object of Messrs.
Mackenzie & Mann in acquiring the
whalers is to obtain freight for the Canadian Northern when the railway is
running through to the coast. Local
whalers produce thousands of tons of
fertilizer yearly, which will be shipped
back to the wheat fields of the northwest.
The enterprize of Messrs. Mackenzie
& Mann promises to give to British Columbia one of the largest and most important fishery concerns in the world.

WILL MISS THE CANNERIES
Sir Wilfrid Laurier will unfortunately be a little too late in his visit to this
north country to be able to personally inspect one of Canada's greatest natural
resources���the salmon fishing. It is to be deeply regretted that he will miss it. Few
of the citizens of this city "themselves realize the magnitude of this industry on the
coast and its importance to the welfare of this Province.
The average cannery in this province costs complete with modern machinery
about $60,000. It is a big investment and sometimes a very profitable one. No
industry could be more interesting to the Premier while he is in the North. To see
a modern cannery in operation would give him a pleasant and profitable half hour,
for he could grasp at first hand the various phases of the labour problem and the
different races engaged therein. Sir Wilfrid is apt in his conception of things and,
as he has been dependent on the reports of inspectors and college professors for his
information he might have grasped something that has previously Been overlooked.
From Rivers Inlet to the Nass, including Bella Coola, Namon, Lowe Inlet etc.,
there are some thirty canneries representing an investment of at least two millions,
and employing for three months in the year about 12,000 hands���whites, Japanese,
Indians and Chinamen. This year one half million cases will be packed in pound
and half pound tins, representing almost $4,000,000 which will have been taken from
the rivers of this country.
It is coming in direct contact with these facts that brings them forcibly to mind,
and it is to be regretted that Sir Wilfrid could not be put in touch with the practical
fishermen and cannery men. He might have found a solution for some of their
difficulties.
. Aid. Russ Humber of Victoria has resigned from the city council because a
contractor who was making repairs to the city hall purchased a load of bricks from
a firm of which he was a member and had them delivered to the city hall. Aid.
Humber's legal advisor said he was disqualified so he resigned rather than take
chances of legal proceedings against him later. The fact that he allowed city rubbish to be dumped on his firm's property was also given as a source of disqualification.

THRILLERS AT EMPRESS
Melodrama    Which    is    So    Funny
It   Brings   Tears
They are running some films at the
Empress theatre just now in which the
sublime and the ludicrous, the tragic
and the comedy follow in such lightning changes that eyes are kept moist
during the run of the series. But not
with sympathetic sadness.
It depicts a drama so mellow as to
be rotten to the core. A young wife,
a betrayer, the young wife in the streets
with her little girl, the betrayer appears
and withers them with a two thousand
volt glance, then the child is kidnapped, the wife appears on the bridge
at midnight, calls upon good hevin's
until the clock runs down, then does
the   Song-of*��th��-Shirt   plunge.
But the hero appears���of course.
He seats himself in sadness and tells
his woes to the moon. Suddenly, he
espies the hole in the water and���boiling
with blasphemy hangs his straw hat
on a nail in the scenery, doffs his coat
and folds it neatly then���with a prayer
to heaven and the unkissed kiss of his
mother on his lips���he plunges. . But,
the canvass wall containing the raging
flood falls down, and the hero is seen
clutching the heroine with a man in
the rear tossing up a bucket of water
to represent the splash when the hero
plunged.
This unexpected denouement is funny,
but the funniest part is to watch the
faces of the supposed audience, and
their changing expressions, as they thrill
with the blood-curdling horrors and
applaud when virtue is triumphant.

of the city the franchise to that important public utility the telephone,
and who without pay for such services
or interest on the money so invested
transferred their well-equipped telephone plant to the city at its nett cost,
be it hereby
Resolved that the names of said
public-spirited citizens, the officers and
shareholders of the telephone company,
be spread upon the minutes of this
council to the end that they and their
praiseworthy act and deed may figure
prominently in the city's history and
keep alive in their successors a spirit
of civic pride and emuation.   And it be
Further resolved, that the aforesaid
names shall be spread upon the civic

J: MALL    MATTERS
Considered   By   Aldermen   at   Last
Night's    Meeting
A communication was received from
the city solicitor advising the council
to take up with the government authorities in Vietoria the matter of levying
a tax against the government propetry.
Unsanitary   Grounds
The M. H. O. reported that the Third
avenue Cash Meat market was in an
unsanitary condition and he refused
to clean it up. The city was recommended
to do the work and charge the cost
against the proprietor. The communication ' was received and the Health
committee was instructed to enforce
the provisions of the by-law.
A petition was received from the
Medical health department reporting
on the unsanitary condition of a portion
of the G. T. P. R. reserve. They recommended that all shacks, and buildings
be removed off the reserve, except in
cases where there are land leases and
that those leases be left providing that
the leasees keep the property cleaned.
There was considerable discussion
on the report and finally it was referred
to the city solicitor to express his opinion
on it.
Aid. Mobley drew attention to the
dangerous condition of First avenue
past Eighth street. It needed a hand
rail.���Referred to the streets committee
with power to act.
Aid. Naden said that the only way to
get section one into the condition it
should be from an insurance stand
point was the introduction of a fire limit
by-law. He hoped in the near future
to introduce such a by-law.
Mayor Stork reported that the committees in connection with the Laurier
celebration had about completed their
arrangements. The reception committee
will go on board the boat at 12:30 and
go out to the mouth of the harbor and
meet the Prince George.

Canada's     Coeur-dc-Leon   Receives
Many Distinguished Congratulations
Lord Strathcona received innumerable congratulations on his 90th birthday. In connection with the celebration of the anniversary, a book entitled,
"Canada's Coeur-de-Leon," was issued
to-day, containing appreciations from
many eminent persons, including Joseph Chamberlain and Lord Lansdowne. Many press appreciations appear in the papers bearing tribute to
Lord Strathcona. Interviewed Canada's high commissioner replied that
he would not celebrate the day, but
would be at his office as usual.
"It is seventy years since I first went
to Canada," said Lord Strathcona, "so
at any rate I am an old Canadian, if
not an old man, and that is what I like
to remember."

THIRD AVENUE
PEOPLE ANXIOUS
PETITION     THE     COUNCIL     TO
HURRY GRADING ALONG
Aid. Mclntyre Supports the Petitioner!.���Others Express Their
Desire to Get the Work Started
But Point Out Many Other Things
Third avenue property owners, headed
by M. P. McCaffery, are not going to
sit quietly down and await the pleasure
of the aldermen in grading that avenue,
if petitions and agitations will hurry
it along any. They sent a petition to the
council yesterday and last night there
was a lot of discussion on the subject.
Third  avenue will shortly be started.
A petition was read to the council
from property owners on Third avenue
asking that the grading of that avenue
be started at the earliest possible date.
It was referred to the Streets Committee.
Aid. Mclntyre said that it was unfortunate such petitions had to come in.
He had been approached some time ago
by ratepayers asking that Third avenue
go ahead at the same time as Second
avenue. He regretted the delay on Third
avenue. The Third avenue people are
assessed higher and building is being
badly handicapped. For instance on
the corner of Third and Seventh two
big buildings are being held back.
Aid. Pattullo went into an explanation
of the delay, laying the chief cause to
the petition that had been sent in asking for a change of the grade on that
avenue.
Aid. Lynch referred to a petition for
a change in the grade on Third avenue
east. The engineer said that this petition would cause some delay as it required to be looked into. The alderman
then entered upon a defence of the
engineering department and said that
so far as the statements that there were
too many engineers was concerned,
there were not nearly enough.
Aid. Mobley said that he did not
believe that the council intended to give
any advantage to one avenue over any
other. He did not think there was any
cause for alarm.
The City Solicitor stated that if there
were to be any changes in street grades
they had better be made at once as the
date for filing the plans would expire
on September 10th. After that date it
would be made more difficult to get any
changes through.
Aid. Mclntyre thought that the
question of grades should be left entirely
in the hands of the engineer.
FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE DEAD
Movement to Have Public Funeral
In   Westminster   Abbey
(Special to the Optimist)
London, August 16.���Florence Nightingale died on Saturday afternoon and the
Sunday newspapers published columns
descriptive of the career of this famous
woman, from the time of her experience
as a nurse in the Crimean war down to
the present. The funeral was to be
private, according to her expressed
wish, but a movement has been started
for a public funeral. The soldiers pe-
itioned for a funeral pageant and this
has been accorded. The remains will
be honored by sepulchre in Westminster
Abbey.
TWO MURDERERS ESCAPE
Both Made a Clean Getaway From
The Hamilton Insane Asylum
(Special to the Optimist)
Toronto, August 16.���Two insane
murderers excaped from the Hamilton
Insane asylum last night and are still
at liberty. One of the men is Gunner
Moir, who ran amuck with a rifle at
the barracks and killed an officer. The
other is named McTaggard, who slew
his wife here in 1899.
There is a panic in the district this
morning, owing to fear of these insane
murderers.
HARVEST TRAINS  START
Usual Complaints of Farmers They
Cannot   Secure   Labor
(Special to the Optimist)
Winnipeg, August 17.���The first harvest excursion train, with eleven hundred men aboard, arrived here yesterday.
They had had a good trip with the exception that at Caledon one car jumped
the track and two men were injured.
Farmers are making the usual complaints against the railway people for
not having started these excursion
trains earlier, and are predicting that
part of the harvest will be lost because
of the scarcity of labor.

A KNOTTY PROBLEM
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
Prince Rupert He asked only a few
changes. Mr. Durant asked that the
council delay action until Mr. Waller
arrives. To adopt this plan the whole
city could be lighted the first year and
not only section one, and it would save
the expense of putting in the temporary
plant which would be worthless in a
short time.
A rate of 12c per K. W. hour would
represent a cost of 3c per 16 c.p. lamps
for 5 hours or very nearly as cheap as the
eastern cities. They could also put in
a low figure for power to be used in the
day time.
The aldermen calledn Egineer Davis
to the council chamber and they en-
dulged in a long discussion on his report
on thc electric light plant.
Aid. Mobley mcved that the engineer
be instructed to compile data so that
he can secure the necessary machinery
for distributing the electric energy.
The question of where we will get our
power can be decided later but the inside machinery must be had at any rate.
Aid. Lynch said that the engineer
should also take up the question of
installing another SO h.p. boiler along
side the one in the sash and door factory
now. That would enable the city to use
the full 125 h.p.  engine in the factory.
Aid. Smith said that the proposition
submitted by Mr. Durant was worthy
of every consideration. He would
second Aid. Mobley's motion to have
the engineer secure the machinery
necessary  for  distributing  the  power.
Aid. Naden pointed out that it would
be necessary to put a by-law to the
people to pay for the plant.
Aid. Mobley said he believed that
there would be $9000 left in the general
fund this year to pay for the electric
light plant.
Aid. Pattullo moved that the city take
steps at once to procure the old pole
line if it is possible to get it reasonably
without going to arbitration.
Aid. Smith said that the company
has already been asked to submit a
proposition to the city b t they have not
yet done so.
Some of the aldermen wished the
engineer to tell them what the cost
would be per 16 c.p. lamp if the street
lamps were put in at the same price
as the house lamps. After he had figured
it out the engineer reported that it
would cost a little less than 8c per K.W.
hour, or about 4 c per 16 c.p. lamp per
winter night of 7 hours. This would
mean that the street lighting would cost
$9,395 per annum and the revenue from
the private consumers would be $7,836
per year. The street lighting was considered a tremendous tax for a town
with the present population.
