PRINCE RUPERT'S FIRST BUDGET DEBATE
Single Tax on Land and a Fifteen-Mill Rate Recommended by the Finance Minister.
Revenue and Expenditure Is Estimated at About $148,000���No Taxes on Improvements
to Property���Alderman Naden Objects to the High Rate, and Suggests
the Aldermen's Salaries Be Cut Off and Officials Doubled Up.
Finance Ministei T. D. Pattullo
Lrought down his budget and placed
it on the table last night. It provided
for a revenue and expenditure of something like $148,000 and necessitated a
tax rate of 15 mills. This was en the
single tax oasis and included the taxes
of all except of course the frontage tax
which will be fixed after the work is done.
There will be no special school tax,,
hospital tax, or any of those side issues.
It will be a straight tax upon the land.
The budget was taken up in committee of the whole when all the heavy
weight debaters had their iittie say. It
looked like an unanimous approval
for a while although three members had
said nothing. Then when the supporters
of the 15 mill rate and the large revenue
began to think that all was smooth
sailing Aid. Naden took occasion to
play the roll of kicker, as he himself
styled it. He was supported in many
points by Aid. Smith and Aid. Barrow
and a very interesting debate followed,
with the result that the committee
decided to defer action for a day or two
to give the aldermen an opportunity
to go more carefully into the estimates
see if any reductions in the estimates
could be made.
Bad Effect   on Investments
Aid. Naden in opening stated that he
had listened with a great deal of interest to the Finance Committee's
estimates. It struck him, however,
that it was a pretty high rate. It was
about 2 1-2 per cent, of the real estate
values in the city and the assessment
is pretty high at that. If it was possible
to cut it down it, would, he felt, be a
great send off for the city. Such a high
assessment and the high rate would
have a bad effect upon the outside
investing public as the majority of
business men writing to his office always
asked the rate of taxes and the assessment.
Aid. Pattullo said thai' this year the
city had to meet all kinds of expenses
and he thought that it would be better
to start off with a good sum and have
a surplus at the end of the year, and next
year a lower rate could be established.
The rate is not high when it is remembered that nothing but the lands
are taxed. The rate covers schools,
hospital, etc, etc.
Aid. Mobley and Mayor Stork said
that the people anticipated a high rate
of tax. We have got to have it if we are
going to make a town here. The conditions are extraordinary and we have
to meet them.
Aid. Pattullo said that there were a
number of items in the estimates which
will eventually he charged to capital
account, but in the meantime they have
to. be provided for out of the current
revenue, hence the large rate this year.
Aid. Mobley said that if he got off
with the present tax it would be the low
est rate he has had to pay during his
twelve years in British Columbia.
He  Would Cut   Salaries
Aid. Naden asked if it would not be
possible to cut down or double up some
of the officials. He mentioned the
sanitary inspector and thought that the
police could just as well do the duties

PROTEST AGAINST ALTERATION

Twenty-Five Thousand Canadian
Signatures on Petition Presented
to British Parliament���Will Probably Appeal to the House of Lords.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, July 13.���One of the most
significant features that marked the
anniversary of the battle of the Boyne���
if it be not a mere coincidence���was the
presentation to parliament yesterday
of a petition signed by twenty-five
thousand Canadians, protesting against
any alteration of the royal oath. The
presentation caused considerable comment
It is estimated that the number of
members who will vote against the
Declaration bill will be one hundred and
fifty. Most of its opponents are credited with the intention of appealing to
the house of lords to defeat the measure,
as in the case of a similar bill brought in
by Lord Salisbury in 1901.

PRINTING   BUREAU   TO   BE ENTIRELY REORGANIZED.
Canada Gazette Contains Advertisement for Superintendent of Printing, Also for Superintendent of
Stationery���The Popular Inference
Ottawa, July 11.���An important announcement in regard to the reorganization of the printing bureau is contained in the Canada Gazette today in
the shape of an advertisement by the
civil service commissioner inviting competition for the position of superintendent of printing and superintendent of
stationery. Formerly the position was
held by Mr. William McMahan, who
will probably be superannuated, and
latterly by the late Frank Gouldthrite.
It is impossible to obtain from the
department any information as to the
exact effect of this advertisement upon
the reorganization of the bureau but
the inference is that the reorganization
will be more sweeping than was popularly believed.

LAURIER ALTERS
HIS ITINERARY
WILL    OPEN    INAUGURAL    FAIR
AT   VANCOUVER
Sir Wilfrid Will Make Long Stay
Here���Arrives at Noon Saturday
and Leaves the Night of Monday
Following.
It would appear from arrangements
announced that the visit of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier to the Pacific toast in August
is to be more official thanp olitical, so
far as this part of the world is concerned. His principal stopping points
in British Columbia will be Vancouver
Victoria and Prince Rupert. The only
other places he will visit at all will be
Golden, where he will stop for an hour
coming West, and Kamloops, where he
may have a short stop on his way east.
Following is a synopsis of Sir Wilfred's revised itinerary as repeated to
executive of the Vancouver Liberal
association by Hon. William Templeman:
The special train bearing Sir Wilfred
and party westward over the C. P. R.
will reach Vancouver on the morning
of Tuesday, August 16. On Tuesday afternoon Sir Wilfrid will formally open
the inaugural fair of the Vancouver
Exhibition Association and the speech
which he will deliver on this occasion
will be the only one he will favor Vancouver with.
Sir Wilfrid will leave Vancouver for
Victoria by special steamer about noon
on Wednesday, Aug. 17, reaching Victoria early on the evening of the same
day. At the capital Sir Wilfrid will
be welcomed by Premier McBride and
the members of his cabinet and he
will speak at the gathering arranged by
the Provincial government in his honor.
It is possible that he may be prevailed
upon to deliver an address to Victoria
Liberals, but no arrangements to that
end have yet been completed.
Late on the night of Thursday, Aug.
18, Sir Wilfrid Laurier will sail from

NEW SALMON-
FISHING DEVICE
LABOR-SAVER   WILL   BE   WELCOMED ON THE SKEENA.
Will Draw in Salmon Nets Without
Manual Handling���Worked by the
Same Engine That Propels the
Vessel and Is Not Costly.
Captain Henry Larsen, of the pioneer
shipping men at Fort Madison has
perfected a device to be used in connection with salmon fishing, which promises to be a very important factor in
that industry. He has also built a new
fishing boat, called the Lubra, specially
to accommodate the invention, and for
the past few days has been exhibiting
his craft on the Seattle waterfront.
The invention is described as a reel
equipment placed aft, which will draw
in the nets without manual handling,
and it is worked by the same engine
which propels the vessel. The new
boat is 40 feet in length, with a beam
of 12 feet and a draught M 4 feet. Her
speed is about 8 knots.
A putty man is useful, but is apt to
be hard to get rid of after his period
of usefulness is over.
AIRSHIPS FOR
FORT GEORGE
VICTORIA COLONIST AUTHOR OF
THIS   STORY
Flying Machines as a Solution of
Those Transportation Problems
Which Embarrass All Colonization
Schemes  Based  on   the   Interior.
Nowhere else in the world has the
inauguration of passenger airship service in Germany been observed with
more active and peculiar interest than
in this far western province of British Columbia, and more particularly
by those directly and actively engaged in the promotion of colonization in
New Cariboo, having Fort George as
its hub and future capital. The necessity of securing immediate and convenient transportation to this new
centre of population is fully appreciated,
and the airship is looked upon as offering unique facilities for meeting existing difficulties. In the difficult nature
of the country to be traversed in securing
connection with established railway
facilities the building of roads involves
a question of time, and time-saving
is extra important at the present juncture.
If airships can be employed ro connect Fort George with points on the C.
P. R., a very obvious difficulty in Cariboo's colonization will be solved. A
troup of capitalists particularly interested have therefore sent an agent to
Berlin to patronize the new German
agency of communication and also to
investigate all incidental costs in connection with the possible establishment

PUBLIC WORKS
FOR THE SKEENA
LARGE   GOVERNMENT   GRANT
FOR THE DISTRICT
" Minister-in-the-Saddle" Taylor and
Member of Legislature Manson
Tell What the Government Will
Do to Assist Local Progress.
Hon. Thomas Taylor, minister of
public works for B. C, and Wm. Manson
member for Skeena in the legislative
assembly, returned from their trip
into the Bulkley valley, which extended
ninety miles from Hazelton, on Monday
and a public meeting was held that
evening in the Mission school house to
give the public a chance to meet them.
C. F. Morrison was made chairman,
and after a short address of welcome
called upon Mr. Manson to address the
meeting.
Mr. Manson said that this was his
first visit since he was elected to represent this constituency in the legislature but that he expected to come
every year as long as he continued to be
a member; that the interior is coming to
the front and the tremendous development incurs large responsibilities to the
public and government will be best
served by becoming fully acquainted
with the needs of the district.
He realized that the burning question
of this district was that of'transportation
and the part the government was doing
in providing roads, trails and bridges. At
the session last winter he asked for $269,-
000 for this district and supported his
request as far as he was able. The government was unable to grant as much as
was asked in any of the constituencies
and this amount had to be cut down.
He was, however, able to secure the
largest appropriation for his district.
Mr. Manson reviewed the Canadian
Northern agreement and showed the
wisdom of the government's course in
that matter. Mr. Manson created a
distinctly favorable impression on his
hearers, with most of whom he was unacquainted, and was generously applauded
at the close of his speech.
Mr. Taylor, who is earning the name
of the Minister-in-the-Saddle, from the
habit of finding out thingB for himself
by visiting all parts of the province, prefaced his remarks by saying that his
present trip was in no sense political;
that he was here in the ordinary course
of duty. He said the government fully
appreciated the great developments that
would follow the completion of the G. T.
P. and the enormous demands upon the

and would open up the country as fast
as possible. He spoke at some length
on the future possibilities of the province
and drew a glowing picture of what the
country would be in another short period.
The last speaker of the evening was
R. S. Sargent who drew attention to the
necessity of a road and ferry to connect
with the railway construction camps on
the farther side of Bulkley river and the
importance of the matter to residents
and business men of Hazelton.���Omineca

Furnished Rooms May Be

Just to have " furnished rooms J
to rent" is no great feat���or nov- j
elty. The number of people whose I
homes are in furnished rooms��� j
"homes within homes"���is very l
large. '
And among the people who live . j
in "one room homes" are an in- t
creasing number who like to have I
things a little better than usual. {
They   like   to  have   a  pleasant 1
room,   and  they like to have it I
fitted up DISTINCTIVELY, with \
taste. J
They will cheerfully, eagerly, I
pay for SOMETHING BETTER |
in the way of a furnished room, l
Fix yours up to please the particu- (

ACCORDINGLY, and you'll get 1

JACK JOHNSON
IS IN NEW YORK
COLORED  PEOPLE   BLOWING   IN
THEIR   WINNINGS.
Wish to Be in Millionaire Class in
Theatres and Restaurants.���The
Pawnshops Doing a Big Business
Selling Revolvers to Whites.
New York, July 12 ��� Last night the
negroes of this city surpassed themselves
and their race in Chicago in the monster
reception they had prepared for Johnson upon his visit here.
The colored population won heavily
on the Reno fight by backing Johnson
to the limit under the juicy odds given
by Jeffery's supporters.
Barn Wilkins, a close friend of the
black champion, had charge of the reception plans, and promised that "San
Juan Hill," New York's colored belt,
would "agitate" when Johnson came to
town. It most certainly did, and thus
the promise was kept.
Columbus avenue, Thompson street,
and San Juan Hill district and the negro
quarter in Harlem were all ablaze with
bunting and lithographs of 'our champion'
appeared in the windows of practically
every negro apartment in New York.
Hell's kitchen, the Irish district adjoining San Juan Hill on the west side,
was also agitated but in a different manner. A number of bitter clashes between
whites and blacks occurred last night
and Police Commissioner Baker has
ordered extra reserve forces thrown into
the feud districts, trouble seems inevitable, as the "cockiness" of the colored
population seems to have advanced a
hundred fold since July 4 and citizens
who at first were only amused are now
viewing the matter in a more serious
light.
The police say that pawnshops and
hardware stores have done a bigger business in the sale of revolvers during the
past four days than at any similar time
in recent years. Most of the purchasers
are white persons.
A really serious situation has developed at Hammersteins, where Johnson is
scheduled to open. The management
has always barred negroes from the
boxes at the roof garden. As a result
of their clean-up on the fight, all of the
sporty colored people are apparently
in the millionaire class and nothing but
boxes will do them. So far trouble has
been avoided by the management stating
that all boxes are sold, but this subterfuge is not believed to suffice permanently. Broadway restauranteurs are
also worried over the attempts which
has been made by negro theatre parties
to invade their places. Admission has
not been granted them and a batch of
damage suits are espected to result.
Tenders for Telephone Poles
Sealed tenders will be received by the Prince
Rupert Telephone Company for 100 cedar poles
30 feet long, and 30 cedar poles 85 feet long. All
tenders to be submitted not later than July 20th.

THE PROPOSED TAX RATE.
A fifteen mill tax rate is something heavier than the ratepayers and business men
hoped for. It was generally thought that a ten mill rate would be sufficient for this
year but that opinion, of course, was not based on any practical estimate of necessary expenditure. A ten mill rate will look good to the investing public outside but
everyone realizes that current expenses must be met and a rate sufficient to meet
them must be made. The question is really decided in the estimates, the details
of which have not yet been given to the public. In the meantime it is impossible
to criticize an unknown list of items. The single tax proposition will meet with
popular favor. The heavy salary-roll in the city is given as one cause of the high
rate but it is an item which cannot be cut very much. The pay-roll in a growing
city, like the pay-roll in a growing business, is usually in advance of its income and
in this respect Prince Rupert cannot be compared with other cities of similar population. Prince Rupert is preparing for a big city and big men have to be hired here
where other cities can do with small men.
DR.  REDDIE,  M. H. O.
He Received a Majority Vote of the
Council.
The council again took up the matter
of appointing a Medical Health officer.
The same three applicants names were
before the council, viz Dr. Reddie, Dr.
Eggert and Dr. Cade.
Dr. Reddie was elected by a vote of
five to two, with one spoiled ballot.
PUBLIC   MEETING
Thursday  Night  to  Organize  Agricultural Society
A public meeting will be held on Thursday night for the purpose of organizing
an Agricultural and Industrial Society.
His Worship the Mayor stated to the
council that he had been requested to
do this by the Board of Trade and it
gave him pleasure to comply with the
request. He would therefore adjourn
the meeting of the council for that night
and request all the aldermen to attend
the public meeting.
PETITION  WAS   SIGNED
Telephone  Will  be  Taken  Over  By
the City at Once.
The petition from the rate payers
was received last night asking tne council
to take over the assets of the Telephone
Co at actual cost. The property owners
in the petition represented $1,368,525.
The sum required was $1,272,100 so
that there is a clear nargin of $100,000
or nearly so.
Aid. Lynch then moved that the city
solicitor be requested to bring in a bylaw providing for the taking over of the
telephone  plant.
The motion was adopted and the bylaw will be presented at once. Thus the
council will not have to draw upon the
current revenue fund or take any chance.
The people have asked the council to
operate the telephone and it is up to the
council to act accordingly.
GRAFT   IN   ROYAL   CITY
More and  More  Irregularities  Discovered in City Accounts
(Special to the Optimist)
New Westminster, July 13.���The
mote the accounts of the city are looked
into the greater grows the municipal
scandal. The auditors certain citizens
insisted upon engaging last night made
another sensational report. This shows
that up to June $55,000 had been allowed in illegal rebates. The sum total
of crooked work is said to be mounting
up toward a quarter of a million and as a
result of these exposures the city is
likely to be involved in numerous costly
litigations.
A Public Meeting will be held
in the Board of Trade Rooms,
corner Third Avenue and Fifth
St., Thursday evening, July 14th,
at 8 o'clock, to discuss the holding of an Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition in Prince
Rupert.

BIGGEST   STRIKE   YET
Gompers   Says   Garment   Workers
Have Broken all Precedents.
New York, July 12.���Declared by
Samuel Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor, to be
the largest strike in point of numbers that has ever taken place in this
country, the strike of the garment
makers of this city, in which 75,000
men and women are claimed to be out,
continued in full swing today with no
sign of weakening on either side.
CALL LAW UN-BRITISH
Toronto Merchants Protest Against
B. C. Companies Legislation.
Toronto, July 11.���Among the business men and members of the Toronto Board of Trade there is a strong
feeling against the action of the British Columbia Government in fixing
the commercial tax on the basis of
the capital of a company seeking to
do business in that province, instead
of allowing licenses to be issued, as in
Ontario and the other provinces, on
the amount of capital required to do
business in the province where the
license is sought.
The matter will be taken up by the
Manufacturers' Association and merchants and members of the Board of
Trade who will wait upon the government and ask for a veto of the legislation which is declared to be un-British.
In Ontario a man may sell goods without
a license and still have a standing in the
court. This is denied by British Columbia
law.
When the fool has been parted from
his money he joins the great army that
blame their impecuniosity on the provident people.

steamship Prince George. The run up
the coast will not be a hurried one, according to Captain C. J. Nicholson, superintendent of the Grand Trunk Pacific

on Saturday, A^ug. 20.
Sir Wilfrid hopes to arrive at Prince
Rupert well rested alter his long transcontinental trip. He will spend Sunday,
Aug. 21 in the coming northern metropolis, and will address the residents on
the following day.
It is possible that he may take a
short run up the Skeena river in one of
the river boats, but that is a matter
the premier himself must decide after
his arrival at Prince Rupert. Anyway
t is hfs intention to leave Prince Rupert on the night of Monday, Aug. 22,
on the Prince George, and be in
Vancouver on the following Wednesday
night. On the morning of Thursday,
the 25th, the premier will leave in his
special train for the east again.
Sir Wilfrid is being accompanied on
his trip by Hon. George P. Graham,
minister of railways; Mr. F. R. Pardee,
chief whip of the liberal party, and Mr.
E. M. McDonald, member for Pictou,
Nove Scotia. Twelve newspapermen attached to the eastern Canadian press
and a number of ministerial secretaries
are accompanying the party.
The Prince George, the sister ship of
the Prince Rupert, is the vessel on which
Sir Wilfrid is to make his voyage north.

Since the opening of the Brandon's

theatre the public have been waiting
for the production of "Cousin Kate"
from the fact that Miss Jeanne Russell
the star of the company only recently

Canada.
The company will present this beautiful comedy tonight exactly as it was given
on the one night stand tour and the patrons of the Empress are assured of the
best treat of the season.
Cousin Kate is an English society
comedy and the play that made Ethel
Barrymore famous as a star and Miss
Russell has been pronounced by all
equal to Miss Barrymore in the part.
Tomorrow night another big treat
is in store-when David Harum with Carl
Caldwell in the title role will be produced.

Publicity Association of Washington,
D. C, Seeks the Support of the
Prince Rupert Board of Trade-
Board to Confer with City Council
Among the communications read at
Monday night's meeting of the Board
of Trade was one from a proposed Canadian West bureau of information to be
established at Washington, D. C. It
drew attention to an enclosed letter
addressed to the mayor and council
outlining the plans of the bureau, and
asked that the board lend its influence
with the council that Prince Rupert
might have proper representation in the
work.of the bureau.
The letter to the council states that
the bureau is to disseminate among the
people of the United States accurate in
formation relative to the opportunities
for investment and settlement in the
towns and cities of the Canadian West
from the Lakes to the Pacific. It is
proposed to establish and maintain in
Washington a central exhibition bureau,
where visitors may obtain without charge
reliable information about all phases of
the rapid development of the western
country, and it will also maintain a
publicity bureau which will supply to
correspondents news and news feature
articles bearing upon the great progress
in Western Canada. ^T
At present it is estimated that the
annual expense will be about $10,000,
It is planned to support the bureau and
defray this expense through annual
subscriptions by the larger municipalities
of which about seventy-five are being
asked to subscribe to this fund in amounts
varying according to population. Any
municipality so in co-operation will share
fully in the benefits of the bureau
Prince Rupert's share on this basis is
placed at $500, and the council is asked to
subscribe that amount. It is understood
there will be no other charges in connection with the bureau, and that all in
formation and services rendered by the
bureau will be free of charge.
After a brief discussion by members
of the board the secretary was instructed to acknowledge the receipt of
the letter and to inform the promoters
of the proposed bureau that their request would be compiled with and the
matter brought to the attention of the
council by representatives of the board.

Letters to the Editor
.SOMETHING FROM STEWART
The Editor the Optimist:
Dear Sir,���My attention has been
drawn to an article in your issue on
July 4th, which I consider is entirely
wrong and uncalled for, more especially
by you* paper which a short time ago
sent a special representative to Stewart
asking the support of the leading business
men of Stewart to get up an edition of
your paper���for the express purpose
as your representative stated of 'boosting' this town and district. Now so far
as the mining interests of the Portland
Canal are concerned, neither the editor
of your paper or any member of the staff
is in a position to make a statement, and
especially such a one, as was made in
that article. I repeat: "Every mine
there is still a prospect, and until ore
shipments are made there can .be only
prospects." Then you class the Portland
Canal mine, that on the authority of its
management has a million dollars worth
of ore actually blocked out and ready
for treatment, as a prospect? and butt
up against the opinions of H. E. Knobel,
W. J. Elmendorf, T. J. Vaughn-Rhys,
T. Moore Fletcher and other well known
authorities and conclude by that article
that D. D. Mann and his associates are
investing hundreds and thousands of
dollars in something "that is still unknown".
Your remarks regarding the local
stocks and real estate situation are so
nonsensical as to require no further comment.
Once before I wrote you to ask the
people of Prince Rupert not to knock,
and if you can't 'boost' Mr. Editor,
please don't be a 'knocker'. What about
your wholesale houses?
Yours truly,
HARRY SMITH.
The article which Mr. Smith alluded
to was a criticism of an extravagrant
article which appeared in a Toronto
paper and similar articles in many other
distant papers which will do Stewart
more harm than good. The comment was
quite in keeping with the expressed
opinion of some of the most reliable men
interested in Stewart. The Optimist
has not now nor ever had any desire
to set its opinion on mines up against
mining engineers but the world judges a
mine by its smelter returns or by the
gold products from placer returns. If
it is "knocking" to let the public know
that it is too early to expect these returns
then The Optimist desires to plead
guilty. This paper has always had great
faith in Stewart as every reader knows
but it is not necessarily loosing that
faith by stating a few facts to correct
false reports sent abroad. Having got
rid of his "roast" doubtless Mr. Smith
can read the article in a calmer spirit
and see the justice of it.���Editor Optimist

of that official. That would save so much
money. He said he did not want to be
a kicker, but the salary list in this city
was enough to scare him. There was not
a city in the country of the same population with the salary list that Prince
Rupert has. He would protest right now.
He thought that the officials should be
doubled up.
Aid. Mobley moved that the report
to be adopted and that the rate be 15
mills flat. Aid. Lynch seconded the
motion.
Aid. Naden in speaking to the motion
pointed out that only $10,000 was to be
raised by the residents over and above
the land tax, while the outside people
are compelled to pay practically the
whole thing. This is going to have a very
depressing effect upon the real estate
values and the assessment next year will
be ridiculously low. He said cut down
the 15 mill rate a little and place more
taxes upon the people living here. He
wished to give a note of warning that the
effect would be very bad.
Outsiders Should  Help
Aid. Pattullo supported the report
and the rate. He thought that the
people living here had borne their share
of taxes already. They have had to go
down in their pockets many times for
large sums of money for the good of the
city. It is up to the outsiders to come in
here and help build up this city. Those
people have done nothing yet but take
the profits.
Aid. Mobley supported Aid. Pattullo's
statement and said that if anyone should
pay taxes it is the outside speculator.
Aid. Lynch could not see very clearly
how the rise and fall in the price of real
estate would effect the prosperity of
the city very materially. It was the
natural resources of the community
that effected the prosperity of the cky.
Aid. Naden claimed that the value
of real estate did very very materially
effect the prosperity of the city. If land
values go down the assessment goes
down, also the revenue.
Mayor Stork expressed himself along
economical lines.
Satisfied  With   Glory
Aid. Naden then suggested that the
salary of the eight aldermen which amounted to $3,200 be cut off and that they
work for the first six months free and
for glory. He also suggested that every
official be cut off who was not absolutely
required. Cutt off the fixed salaries.
Do all the work on the streets possible, but cut out the salaried servants.
Aid. Smith believed that the council
should not go too fast in striking the
rate. He thought it might be well to
wait for a day dr two and go carefully
over the rate and see if it could bot be
cut down. He would not like to see- the
price of real estate effected. He would not
say that he was opposed to the 15 mill
rate but he would like to have more time
to consider the estimates.
Aid. Barrow agreed with alderman
Naden that the aldermen's salary should
be cut off. He thought the council
should report progress tonight and take
a little time to think the matter over.
Aid. Smith said he did not want any
salary this year. He always felt that he
would give his services to the city.
Aid. Pattullo said he did not think
that the aldermen should make martyrs
of themselves by spending all their time
in the services of the city and spend their
own money for the same purpose. A
great portion of their time and energy
was spent for the benefit of the outsiders
whom Aid. Naden had referred to and
those  outsiders  should  pay  for   it.
On the salary question Aid. Mobley
and Aid. Lynch did not propose to be
free servants. If the money Vas to go
to any benevolent scheme Aid. Mobley
would willingly contribute his salary,
but he wanted his salary and also the fun
of giving it away.
Aid. Mobley and Aid. Lynch consented to withdraw their motion to
adopt the report and let the matter
stand over for a time. This was finally
decided upon and the committee reported progress.
WAY TO SEE THINGS
Philosophic    Editor
Miner  Gives a
of    Ketchikan
Lesson.
A Ketchikan woman told a friend of
our's that this newspaper was an awful
liar. She said that we bragged too much
about the scenery and the sunshine;
that our fish stories were whoppers and
that we didn't know chalcopyrite from
bull quartz. The lady is entitled to another guess. This paper is just as truthful as the exigencies of the occasion require. We don't pretend to clothe all the
fitful offsprings of our brain with the dull
colors of demonstrable facts without
other ornamentation. If we tack on a
few hours to the caressing sunbeam, and
luster it with a fancy shimmer not its
own, we are not less truthful because
she does not see it that way. The coloring
of a crimson rose is in the beholder's
eye, and not in the embracing folds of the
petal. So with the length of some of ou
fish. The eye which measures them is
the true and supreme court of authority
and it is from this standpoint that estimates of their length are taken. Get
in love with your surroundings, then these
things you read in the Miner will be as
true to you as they are to us.
AIRSHIPS FOR
FORT GEORGE
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
of a similar airship service in Central British Columbia. If satisfactory arrangements can be made, the
inauguration of aerial communication
between Fort George and Ashcroft
may be brought about before the advent of winter, or by next spring at
latest.
The German Airship Service covers
a route 300 miles in length and the
diirgible employed is stated to be able
to travel 700 miles without a stop.
The speed on the first trip averaged
almost 35 miles an hour, or better
than that of the ordinary passenger
train on many western railways. The
lifting capacity was twenty-two tons,
while with twenty passengers the total weight of the load carried was
only five tons and a half, this including
the weight of the restaurant car and other
equipment designed for the comfort of
passengers.
Such an airship might easily be operated from points on the mainland to the
Cariboo, the Chilcotin or Fort George.
If two or three stops were made on the
way at bases like Quesnel, it would
not be necessary to go more than one
hundred miles at a single flight en route
from Ashcroft to Fort George and vice
versa. The time required would be much
less and the comfort much greater than
by stage, horse, or automobile.
You may keep the church out of
politics, but it is hard to keep politics
out of churches.

More   Optimistic   Feeling.
(Special to the Optimist)
Winnipeg, July 12.���The recent rains
have caused a more optimistic feeling
on the grain exchange and it is now
admitted that the crop will not be so
very bad after all the misgivings on the
subject. Conditions in Saskatchewan are
reported as splendid and no doubt of the
harvest being early and heavy.
