TAX AGAIN
Losing of seventh street
to traffic
|Thomas Dunn Appears Before the
Council With a Vigorous Protest
-Dumping By-Law to be Made
Retroactive.
The City Council last night again got
Hy tangled up in a discussion upon
local improvement and general assessments for the improvement of property, with the result that the motion to
all''upon the streets committee for a
Unite report culminated in a tie vote,
nth Aid. Mobley, the acting Mayor, to
mt it.
the members were present with
|. exception of Aid. Naden.
Hilditch opened the subject by
I toting that the local assessment dis-
tncts should be at once defined, so that
nek could immediately proceed. He
talked a great deal on the subject in all
ases, Aid. Pattullo pointing out
I tot the Council could not proceed at all
until the improvements called for were
fist discussed. There had been two or
three petitions before the Council for
improvement work, and the course to
be followed was for the engineer to re-
port to the streets committee what the
(est of such improvements would be to
the property-holders, the tax to be
assessed; and the property-holders could
then oppose or sanction the work to be
done. All the members spoke upon the
subject, but the debate was principally
I between Aldermen Lynch and Hilditch.
Acting Mayor Mobley was of opinion
tot, in determining the local improvement districts, they should hear the
voice of the people upon the work to be
done; and it would not do for a few
property-holders to be called upon to
pay for the improvement of a road that
t be of as great a benefit to others.
L Lynch said that was the diffi-
olty. The property-owners would in-
pt upon the work being done on their
mi, and would pay for work on no
other.
In the end the suggestion of Aid.
Pattullo was put in the form of a mo-
fon���the streets committee to take up
Ike petition for the improvement of
Seventh avenue, and at the same time
Commend the area of local assessment
wrict to be assessed for such work.
The latter part of the motion was an
"mendment, and upon the point of the
wimittce at once reporting the assess-
m district there was a division���
"fee for and three against.
Acting Mayor Mobley said he would
I "ke to kn��w more on the subject before
vot'ng; but, as the report could be ac-
*N by the Council or not, he would
���w for the amendment. The latter
werefore carried.
While this discussion was on Thomas
I*1" was heard upon the closing to
wwth street. He stated that Con-
|��tor Watson had laid rails across the
��t for a tramway, and teams could
Pass.   He also pointed out that the
jraetor was going to dump hig mufl.

ing jJt' was a discussion on block-
ets> on depositing muskeg in
fills insteadof into the bay, and on
blasting. Next week, it was promised
there would be a by-law dealing strictly
with these matters, and no work could
be undertaken without first obtaining a
permit. The by-law on dumping is to
be made retroactive, so that those who
have dumped into fills may possibly be
called upon to remove the muskeg so
deposited.
INITIAL TRIP TO STEWART
PRINCE RUPERT MADE THE RUN
IN GOOD TIME
Number of Local Passengers Went
Up and Were Delighted With the
Trip���Reception for Gen.-Manager
and Hon. Thos. Taylor.
On account of the Publicity Club's
dance on Wednesday night Captain
Nicholson consented to the Str. Prince
Rupert being detained here for a few
hours and as a result she did not pull
out for Stewart until nearly 12 o'clock.
The Prince however made a fine run to
the northern mining camp arriving
there shortly after eight o'clock in the
morning.
On board the new steamer were a
large number of Prince Rupert people
who took the opportunity to visit
Stewart, and te have a ride on the
steamer's maiden voyage north. Among
the number were: S. Harrison, Gamble,
Evitt, McRae, C. H. Sawle, Mrs. Sawle,
Wm. Manson, M. P. P., Mrs. Manson
and daughter, Fitzmorris, Casey, and a
number of others.
Everyone was delighted with the trip
and particularly so with the boat and
the service provided. A great deal has
been heard about the Prince Rupert
aud her modern equipment, but nothing
has been exaggerated. From beginning
to end the voyage was one continuous
round of pleasure partaken of amid
luxuries of every kind. It was in short
a trip that all will remember and will
write home about.
Capt. Nicholson mixed with the passengers and made himself very agreeable. Capt. Johnson, although his
time was greatly in demand, also made
himself agreeable and made many new
friends. The officers and crew were
all courteous and alert, and the meals
served in the dining room were all that
could be desired.
It was expected that the Prince Rupert would leave Stewart about ten
o'clock a. m., but Capt. Nicholson, Hon.
Thos. Taylor and Wm. Manson M.P.P.
were detained on shore on account of
the citizens' meetings, and it was nearly twelve o'clock before the big boat
got under steam and pulled away from
the wharf. Once started, however, no
time was lost and she arrived in Prince
Rupert between nine and ten o'clock
last night. The maiden trip of the first
G. T. P. boat was thus a great success
and Bhe will be as welcome every week
as she was on Wednesday.
The Merry Widow Sold.
The little power boat Merry Widow
turned her stern upon Rupert Wednesday for the last time. She has been
sold by the owners to Fred Ferguson,
who is taking her to the west coast of
Vancouver Island to runout of Alberni.
The Merry Widow is one of the pioneer
craft of the harbor here. She was built
in Metlakatla five years ago, and all the
old-timers look upon her as an old
friend. E. Tamphere, who has been the
genial skipper, has gone south with her.
He will remain in Victoria for the
piesent.
MORE HEAVY BUYING
ENGLISH CAPITAL IS BEING INVESTED  HERE
Total Investments of One Man Will
Reach $100,000���Lots 5 and 6 on
Second Avenue Sold for $18,500
���Property will be Improved.
English capital to the amount of
$100,000 was brought into Prince Rupert on the steamer Prince Rupert on
Wednesday and on Thursday the greater portion of it was invested in real
estate. The balance will be invested
within the next 24 hours and all the
deals will be closed and ready for publication. Among other properties purchased were lots 5 and 6, block 23, sec.
1, on Second Ave. between the Exchange Grill and Martin O'Reilly's
clothing store. These lots were owned
by O. M. Helgerson and the price paid
was $18,500 cash. The deal was put
through by M. M. Stephens & Co., and
they are also handling the other deals.
The two lots on Second Ave. will be
improved and M. M. Stephens & Co.
will have charge of the same. The
nature of the building has not been decided upon yet but in a very short
time plans and specifications will be
prepared and the building proceeded
with. The price paid for the two lots
named is the highest yet paid for Second Ave. inside lots on the south side
of the street, and while all the property
purchased yesterday has not been closed definitely, it is safe to *say that it
will constitute a record for one day's
dealings. The amount will total nearly
$72,000, and all of the property is in
section 1 and is business property.
The above is a direct result of judicious advertising and goes to show the
interest that is being taken in Prince
Rupert by the financial interests in
Great Britain. Further particulars of
the deals will be given in tomorrow's
issue.
STEWART TO GET ROADS
GOVT. WILL CONTRIBUTE $20,000
IF CITIZENS RAISE THE REST
Hon. Thos. Taylor and Wm. Manson
M.P.P., Appeared Before Citizens
���Town Development Co. and
Citizens to Pay $5,000 Each.
Stewart, B. C, June 17.-Hon. Thos.
Taylor, Minister of Public Works for
British Columbia, was called upon to
address a meeting of citizens here yesterday afternoon. Hon. Mr. Taylor
was accompanied on the trip by Wm.
Manson, M. P. P., and they went up
and back on the Str. Prince Rupert.
Upon arrival at the little wharf they
took a hand power punt across to the
mud flats and then slid along to the
town. The Minister of Public Works
hardly needed to be told by the citizens
what was needed. Everything is needed and needed badly.
The meeting was presided over by
Harry Smith and the requirements of
the town were placed before the representatives of the Government. The
people asked for $30,000 to be spent on
sewers and sidewalks. The Minister of
Public Works could not see his way
clear to donate all the money although
he admitted that the sale of lots was
much more successful than was anticipated. A proposition was put to the
citizens that if the  citizens  and  the
Stewart Townsite Development Co.
contributed $5,000 each the Government
would put up the other $20,000.
The Citizens' Committee was not
prepared to accept the offer without
submitting it to a mass meeting which
will be held at an early date. There is
little doubt but tint the money will be
raised as the town must have roads and
sewers.
RUSSIA EXPELLING JEWS
REGUGEES LIKELY TO COME TO
THE DOMINION
Eighty-Nine More Forced to Leave
Homes Without Being Given Time
to Settle Their Affairs���Are of a
Good Class.
Kiev, June 17 ��� Eighty-nine more
Jews were expelled from this city yesterday, but few of whom were given
time to settle their affairs. The Russian senate has granted the appeal of
the Jewish pharmacists, and they will
be allowed to remain on the ground
that they are entitled, as university
graduates, to unconditional residence
in Russia.
Montreal, June 17���"There are now
in Canada some Russian Jews from
Kiev from which city the poorer
classes are now being excluded and
sent to the Polish provinces. These
Jews have been found of a good class ;
they are industrious and with the Polish
Jew form a good class of citizen."
So spoke Mr. Israel Rubenstein, one
of the Governors of the Baron De
Hirsch Institute and who in his former
capacity as treasurer of that organization had come into personal contact
with a number of immigrants from the
Russian and Polish provinces. He
said that his experience had been
that these people made a really desirable class of citizens and that those
who had come here had done well.
Asked if he thought that any of the
people affected would come here, Mr.
Rubenstein replied: "That I cannot
tell. The Governors of the Baron De
Hirsch fund in London have charge of
the arrangements for the colonization
of the Jews and will, no doubt, endeavor to make suitable provisions in
various countries and it is probable
that some of these people will come to
Canada. Of course, the Canadian immigration laws are much more'strict
now than when there was an influx of
Russian Jews some years ago, but I am
sure that those who may be admitted
will make good citizens.''
Bourassa Out of Politics.
Ottawa, June 17���Mr. Lavergne denies the report that Bourassa is about
to return to Dominion politics.
Made Final Payment.
Victoria, B. C, June 17.���Mr. Mac-
Kenzie made the final payment on the
Dunsmuir coal mines and his manager,
W. L. Coulson, was placed in charge
yesterday. He would say nothing of
the route of the Island railway line.
Good  News for the   Province.
Calgary, June 17.���J. J. Blakeslee,
manager of Canada House, Berlin, says
much German capital is ready to engage
in the development of British Columbia
timber resources along the lines of conservation methods followed by the German government, which compels the
planting of young trees immediately
after the standing timber is taken
out.
PROFIT OF OVER $15,000
ENGLISH   CAPITAL   PURCHASED
CHOICE   PROPERTY
O. M. Helgerson Co. Puts Through
Deal Which Represents Largest
Profits Made in Prince Rupert���
Property on Third Avenue.
Undoubtedly the greatest profit-making investment in Prince Rupert became
public yesterday afternoon when O. M.
Helgerson Co. put through a deal for
Piercy, Morris Co. amounting to $19,-
500. The lots transferred were 5 and 6
block 32, sec. 1, situated between 7th
and 8th streets on Third Ave. This
property was purchased just two years
and two days ago by Piercy, Morris &
Co. for $1,000 in cash. Thus their net
profit is over $15,000. The purchaser
was S. Grant, of Bella Coola, B. C,
who represents English capital. He
came to town a day or so ago and after
looking around picked on the lots named.
It might also be mentioned that O.M.
Helgerson & Co. owned the two lots on
Second Ave. which were sold by M. M.
Stephens & Co. for $18,500 yesterday,
The money invested in Prince Rupert
real estate is safer than bank stock and
it is doubling in value all the time. Mining stock is good as a speculation, but
for real value and a sure money maker
Prince Rupert real estate leads the
world.
SHEEPDOG UPSETS BOAT.
Young Man Drowned in Attempt to
Rescue a Girl
Seattle, June 7.���A young man named
Albert Needles, visiting here from To-
nopah, took a young woman of 18,
named Alice Monohan, and another,
named Blanche Gorman. 14, out rowing
on Swan Lake last night. They also
took a shepherd dog along, and the
animal, becoming restless at never having been in a boat before, upset the
boat. Needles made a gallant attempt
to rescue the younger girl. He managed
to catch her as she came to the surface,
and was swimming to the bank with her
when his strength became exhausted,
and both were drowned within a few
yurds of the beach. The third member
of the party clung to the upturned boat
and was rescued. The bodies of the
two drowned have not been recovered..
Wreck in Yukon
Dawson, Y. T., June 17.-The White
Pass steamer Cnsca struck low water
in the thirty-mile section of the Yukon
river and foundered in the rapids. The
passengers were landed without difficulty and tho crew is now unloading
the cargo on to the banks to await the
next steamer.
The Imperial   Conference.
London, June 17.��� It is suggested
that the King open the Imperial Conference next year. The Times further
suggests that the King holds court in
all the principal cities of the empire.
It calls for a revision and expansion of
the accepted idea* of royal activity first
introduced by the late King Edward.
South Pole Expedition
Cardiff, June 17.-The British expedition to the south pole sailed from
here yesterday. Several of the officers
who accompanied Lieut. Shackelford
on his "Furthest South" trip, are with
the expedition, and hope to continue the
work of exploration from the point at
which he had to turn back.

STREET BLOCKING
After frequent complaints the city council last night discussed the littering
and blocking of the public streets by private individuals and companies. This
has long been a source of annoyance and even danger. Vehicles, building
material, machinery etc. have been left on the plank roads without guard lights
on dark nights. Persons have frequently collided with these objects. The
dumping of muskeg and rock on the public streets by contractors who are doing
excavating for buildings has also come to the point where it needs controlling
by civic officials. In fact in some instances muskeg has been piled on the streets
ten feet deep and to a height above the permanent grade of the street. This
will doubtless have to be removed again when permanent streets are made.
Last evening the city council decided upon a by-law which will be retroactive and any expense which later will occur in the removal of the debris
dumped on the streets will be charged back against the property from whence it
came. There are many other points which it is hoped the proposed by-law will
cover.
Hon. Wm. Templeman is just now in the bad books of some of his party
friends in this constituency. It seems that James Trodden, of New Westminster, has been appointed as scout or temporary engineer to locate places for the
government docks on Porcher Island, at Skidgate and for the quarantine station
on Digby Island. The critics are probably right in the statement that there are
plenty of north country men capable of the job and more deserving of it.

F1A7   HART   SECONDIA VENUE and
.  W. ilAfil,        SIXTH STREET
Fairbanks, Alaska, June 12. ��� The
steamer White Seal, which wintered in
the Iditarod river, arrived at Fairbanks
to-day, bei#g the first boat from the
new camp. She brought letters from
miners, who say that the reports of the
richness of the new diggings are exaggerated. Pay has been found in shallow
ground on five creeks, but only in spots.
According to the letters, the spring
cleanup will amount to only $100,000,
and the camp will never be large. However, a vast area of territory remains
to be prospected.
The fleet of steamers which went to
Innoko and Iditarod last fall, during
the first stampede, and which were frozen in and obliged to pass the winter in
the ice of the small rivers, have started
to return to Fairbanks. The steamers
have not been heard from since June 1,
and are now five days overdue Jat Kal-
tag, on the Yukon.
It is feared that the channel of the
Iditarod has been blocked by the stranding of a barge, and that the out-bound
steamers may be detained throughout
the season.
MORE NEWS OF FLOODS.
Three Hundred Drowned   in   Hungary, Twenty in Switzerland.
Budapest, June 17.-The latest reports from the flooded districts give the
number who lost their lives during the
cloudburst at Krasso-Szorens, Hungary,
as three hundred. Several villages
were entirely wiped out, with all the
belongings of the families in most cases.
There is said to be much privation as a
consequence.
Berne, June 7.���The floods are the
worst Switzerland has experienced in
sixty years, and accounts of the devastation are coming in from all points.
Twenty bodies have been recovered in
this vicinity. The property loss is estimated at two and a half millions.
TENDERS FOR LUMBER
City  to   Supply   Material and Contractors to put in it
Alderman Mobley took his seat at the
council last night as acting mayor,
Mayor Stork leaving on the Prince Rupert for Victoria on municipal business.
Before the business of the session begun there was a conversation upon the
title Your Worship, Aid. Mobley observing that he had no great admiration
for the title. Aid. Barrow pointed out
that by usage it applied only to the
chief officer of the municipality when
sitting as a magistrate, and not to his
position as mayor of the city.
The first business was brought forward by Aid. Lynch, who in a report
from the streets committee on planking
suggesting that the city should advertise for tenders for the material as
buying in large quantities the city
could buy cheaper than a contractor.
His proposition was that the city purchase the material and contracts be let
for putting it in.
There was a difference in the price,
he pointed out, between fir and spruce
lumber, and also as to service.
Fir would last longer in a ratio of 100
to 60, but came higher than spruce. He
therefore suggested that tenders be
advertised calling for the supply of
250,000 of spruce and the same measurement of fir, and upon the prices quoted
the council could decide which to use.
On motion of Aid. Pattullo seconded
by Aid. Mclntyre it was decided to advertise for > tenders for double the
quantities mentioned.
The finance committee was authorized to pay current bills amounting to
$403.30.

THE   NEW WHARFINGER.
Captain Davies Takes Hold   of  His
New Position.
Captain A. M. Davies, who brought
the Prince Rupert out from England, is
now the wharfinger at this port, succeeding Mr. Morrissey, so long in that
position. The captain is a deep-sea
veteran, and had for twenty years been
with the British and Chilian Navigation
Company, first on their sailing vessels,
and more recently on their steamers.
He was selected for the duty of bringing the Prince Rupert across the Atlantic into the Pacific because of his knowledge of the navigation of the Straits
of Magellan, gained with the Brazilian
company.
Captain Davies has a wife and four
children���two boys of 20 and 18, a girl
of 9 and a boy of 4. He said this morning: "I accepted this position more on
account of the boys than anything else.
I see a big opening here for the boys to
grow up with the conntry."
PRESSMEN HERE.
Rupert Passengers Included Several
Newspaper Men.
Robt. C. Hill, marine editor of The
Railway and Marine News, of Seattle,
was a passenger on the Prince Rupert
on Wednesday. While here he secured
a number of views of the harbor and
the railway construction work which
will be reproduced in his paper along
with a descriptive write-up.
Messrs. Harkin of The Province, Co-
bourn of The World, Nelson of The
Victoria Times, M. C. Scott of The
Seattle Times, and Farley, of Collins
Bros., Glasgow, were among the passengers on board in the interests of
their papers. Collins Bros, are magazine publishers and sent Mr. Farley out
to write a series of articles on British
Columbia and to secure descriptive
views.
GONE TO VICTORIA
After  a   Permanent   Watet  Supply
and Other Things
Mayor Stork, Aid. Barrow, Engineer
Agnew and Solicitor Manson left on the
Prince Rupert last night for Victoria to
represent the city at the hearing of the
city's application for a water record
of 300 inches on Woodworth Lake.
The hearing is on June 21st. While in
Victoria the deputation will also interview the Premier in reference to
getting sites for a city hall, a cemetery, an electric light plant and a city
wharf, as well as a number of other
matters of a similar nature.
Licensing Board Meets.
The licensing board met Wednesday
afternoon and adjourned without action.
It is thought likely that the matter of
the delayed notice of appointment will
be referred to the Attorney General in
order that the board may be sure of its
legal Btatus beyond peradventure.

Delay in Landing  Freight.
Some complaint was made by shippers that part of the Prince Rupert's
freight was carried to Stewart and back.
"It was the first trip of the boat" was
the natural excuse, and Capt. Nicholson
assured the freighters that on the next
and succeeding trips the freight would
be landed most expeditiously by the
use of the electric conveyor now being
put in.
Dissolution of Partnership.
Messrs. Williams & Soule, real estate
brokers, have dissolved partnership, Mr.
Soule having taken over the business
and will conduct seme in future under
the name of Norman Soule & Co.   38-39
AN AGENT WAS APPOINTED
Capt.    Nicholson    Selected    R.     R.
Cunningham at   Stewart.
Stewart, June 17. -Capt. H. C. Nicholson, general manager of the G. T. P.
steamers, was met by a committee of
citizens in the hall yesterday morning
shortly after the arrival of the Prince
Rupert. A formal welcome was tendered him and the best wishes of the
town were expressed. The chief request of the citizens was in reference
to their mail service. They are very
anxious that it should be improved and
to this Capt. Nicholson promised that
so far as the G. T. P. boats were concerned mails would have first consideration.
While here Capt. Nicholson also appointed R. R. Cunningham, manager
of the Stewart Trust, as the passenger
agent of the G. T. P. He will assume
his new duties at once and this town is
now one of the regular ports of call for
the big ships.
ANOTHER  NEW   STEAMER
Grand Trunk's New   Freight   Boat
the Prince Albert.
The people of Prince Rupert had the
pleasure of inspecting another new
steamer of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Company yesterday. This was the
Bruno, or Prince Albert, which arrived
in the morning and after unloading
freight for this port departed on what
will be her real schedule for the Islands
and way ports.
The Prince Albert is an ideal boat for
the coastwise trade. She has a capacity
of nine hundred tons of general freight,
and also has comfortable accommodations for thirty-seven first-class passengers. The interior fittings and conveniences are of a modern character,
and she will undoubtedly be the favorite
steamer for passenger travel to way-
ports between here and Vancouver.
New Electric Conveyor
The Prince Rupert brought with her
an electric conveyor for unloading
freight from the vessels right into the
company's warehouse. The runway is
from the centre of the warehouse to
the top of the hatch on the port side of
the steamer, where the freight is placed on a continuous rubber belt and carried by an electric motor of 22 am-
pheres. The power current is supplied
by the ships themselves. The conveyor
will be completed by the time the
Prince Rupert returns.
CHAS M. HAYS COMING.
Will Spend    Next   Week    in   Vancouver but Cannot  Come Here
David H. Hays received a wire today from Chas. M. Hays, General Manager of the Grand Trunk Railway System, stating that he will be in
Vancouver on Monday next and possibly
the balance of the week. He regretted,
however, that it would be impossible
for him to come to Prince Rupert on
this occasion. D. H. Hays will leave
on the Princess Royal tomorrow morning to meet his brother.

$500,000   CONTRACT.
Westholme Lumber Co. Will  Make
Grade for McKenzie & Mann Ry.
McKenzie & Mann, the railroad builders, have awarded the contract for
grading the Stewart railway to the
Westholme Lumber Co., Prince Rupert's
biggest contractors. The contract is
for 17 miles of clearing and grading and
amounts to about half a million dollars.
The most of the work will be in gravel,
but there will be about 50,000. yards of
rock work, too. The contractors are
already at work shipping lumber for
the camps and construction work. Their
local docks present a busy scene. Between 400 and 500 men will be employed,
as the work is to be rushed.
The contractors will erect their wharf
alongside the Government dock.
Goods  for New Store
The stock for H. S. Wallace & Co.
is arriving on every boat now and being
delivered to their store at the corner of
Fulton Street and Third Ave. A large
shipment came in yesterday although
the building is not yet completed. P.W.
Scott is the owner of the block and the
contractor has made splendid time on it
but he was hardly through by the
15th as was expected. Wallace & Co.
will, however, be ready to do business
as soon as the builders get away.
Telegraph Rates Reduced
Commencing June 1st rates on the
government telegraph line between
Hazelton and Ashcroft were reduced by
twenty-five cents for a ten word mess-
sage, making the charge a dollar instead of the dollar and a quarter under
the old rate.

mmmmmmm* THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST
WILL COMBAT SOCIALISM
Strong  Committee is  Appointed in
New York
New York, June 17. ���The conference
called for the consideration of the
threatening advance of socialism was
attended by a large number of representative men, and the proceedings were
marked by unusual harmony and enthusiasm. Many talented speakers
forcefully pointed out the alleged evils
carried by socialism in its train, and the
result was the decision to form a
national organization to be known as
The Individual and Social Justice
League of America, the principal object of which is declared to be to combat socialism.
To formulate the plan and scope of
the new body, and to conduct the work
of preliminary organization, a strong
committee was appointed, which embraced among others the following
leading prelates and heads of trades
union organizations :
Rev. Wesley Hill, Archbishop Ireland, Bishop Cranston, Bishop Warren,
Bishop Darlington, Rev. S. W. Parks,
Samuel Vansant, Commander-in-Chief
of the G. A. R.; W. G. Lee, President
of the Brotherhood of Trainmen; Peter
Collins, Secretary of the Electrical
Workers International; John Stahl,
Secretary of the Farmers National
Congress; Roswell Tompkins, Secretary of the Building Trades Council;
Timothy Healy, President of the Stationary Firemen International.
Disastrous Fire at Irvine
Irvine, Alta., June 17.���Fire which
started in a stable last night was carried
by the high wind to the hotel adjacent,
and at one time the destruction of the
whole town was threatened. Forty-one
horses perished in the stables.
Rich Bow Valley Opened
Calgary, June 17.-The Blackfeet
Indians will surrender one hundred and
fifteen thousand acres of rich land in
the Bow Valley to the Dominion Government. This will be sold shortly and
the proceeds will go to the benefit of
the Indians.
Car   Strike  Threatened
Port Arthur, Ont., June 17.���The
street railway men are demanding an
increase of pay and as the company
shows no willingness to meet this demand a general strike on all the surface
lines is feared.
Ctatrr Sheet-*>r Pretoria.
Pretoria, June 17.���General Botha
has issued a manifesto calling for a
clean sheet and breaking up all the old
political organisations.
RAID  UNITED WIRELESS.
Officers    Arrested     Charged    With
Gross  Manipulation.
New York, June 17.���Postoffice inspectors this morning raided the offices
of the United Wireless Telegraph Company, seized the books and cash on
hand, and arrested the president and all
the officers of the company found on the
premises. The charge is that the price
of shares have been advanced by gross
manipulation; that the price has been
forced up by misrepresentation of the
company's affairs, although it has been
running at a loss. The officers had
been selling their own stock to the public at an enormous profit, running into
millions.
Winnipeg. June 17.���The arrest of
principal officials of the United Wireless
at New York, on charges of running a
swindling stock scheme, has caused
consternation throughout the northwest. Farmers have invested millions
in the scheme, and they now regard the
money as lost. Agents say the attack
on the United was fomented by the Deforest shareholders, whose stock was to
be exchanged for United.
The Dominion Government denies that
the United has any concessions to build
stations in Canadr.

selected to succeed him. This is John
Fletcher, who has been chief operator
