Grand Trunk Pacific Expert Tells of the Wonderful Mineral and
Agricultural Resources Lying Between Here and Edmonton.���Scenes on the Skeena and In the Harbor.
Ik Mayor stated at last night's City
I Cwucil meeting that his attention had
J p called to the lack of a water main
j on Ninth avenue. He thought that the
Fire and Water Committee should look
I into this matter.
Aid. Mobley said that some time ago
he had broached this matter with
ueveral of the citizens concerned giving
them to understand that if they would
eiprass their willingness to have the
water led into their houses from the main
and to pay for it, the city would no
doubt put in a main along Ninth avenue.
Aid. Hilditch was of the opinion that
these citizens were entitled to a water
supply here as much as the citizens in
any other part of the city.
Aid. Mobley pointed out that they
had taken no steps to show that they
were ready to lead the water from a
main to imir homes, and pay rates for
it. He thought that if they wanted the
water main very badly they would have
done this. The city engineer would
put in free stand pipes, but not free
water to houses. Still there was no
reason why the citizens should not have
water if they were ready to have it led
to their houses from the main and to
pay water rates, and the city would at
once see to the laying of a main wherever
the citizens were so willing.
Aid. Hilditch thought that if the main
were laid the citizens here would soon
take advantage of it, and have connections made with their houses, and
Aid. Patullo mentioned that this whole
water question would shortly need to be
gone into closely for the whole city
the city ought to be getting more revenue
Irom the water supply than it was
jetting at present.
The Mayor thought the matter could
be referred meanwhile to the Fire and
| Water Committee.
Aid. Hilditch speaking in a manner
on behalf of the citizens for whom this
new main is proposed showed by the
���sample of his own position in regard to
wter supply, that the citizens might
* really very much benefitted by the
Placing of a main.   "I am very anxious

The magnificent scenery of the Skeena
river and of the surroundings of this
splendid harbor will undoubtedly be
well advertized both in faithful pictures
and in glowing words during the winter,
and the result must necessarily be a
multitude of tourists next spring and
summer that will tax the accommodation
of all the existing hotels and the many
projected.
All summer long the wealthy people
touring Europe made the famous exhibition at Brussels an objective point,
and were there thrilled into admiration
by the masterly oil paintings of the
Skeena made by Home Russell of
Montreal, last year. The Allan Steamship company will during the winter
show all over Europe and this continent
the moving picture of the Skeena made
by their artists but a few weeks ago,
and there have been other artists and
tourists making pictures and writing
illustrated articles. In addition we have
such eloquent word wielders as Sir
George Doughty, James Carruthers,
D'Arcy Tate, the leading officials of the
railway, the silver-haored and silver-
tongued Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his
party and a whole host of others.
Home Russell was here again but a
few days ago and said in the Optimist
that although he had travelled in search
of scenery over three parts of the world
he had seen none that was superior to
that of the Skeena. Unfortunately he
was unable to pursue his studies on
thiB occasion. The hardships of the
long mush from Edmonton had proved
a little too strenuous for even so re-
doutable a globe trotter, and while
here he was confined to his room with
rheumatism. But we still have with
us R. C. Lett, colonization agent of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, who had charge
of the exploration party from Edmonton
of artists and writers part of which
recently landed here.
Mr. Lett was to leave with the rest
but he felt that he could not tare himself away from such scenery. No sooner
had he captured one gorgeous picture
but another presented itself, until his
collection of plates of this vicinity
alone runs into the hundreds. Two
days he spent with General Superintendent, Mehan, taking pictures along
the line from here to the end of steel;
yesterday he had Mr. Mehan's motor
boat getting views of the harbor and
the neighboring islands. He visited
{-lovely Metlakatla and expressed the
surprise all of us have expressed at some
time of leaving dull skies and in the
course of the four miles coming suddenly into sylvan scenes flooded with
susnhine. Mr. Lett has also taken
views of the city from Acropolis hill and
other points of vantage, and leaves on
the Prince . Rupert today with a
trunk full of plates about which he
cherishes   the   most   unbounded   en*
GRADING WORK
IN SECTION ONE
TENDERS TO BE CALLED
WITHOUT DELAY
FOR
Contract Conditions to Be Altered
on Points Affecting Hours of Labor
���Minimum Wage Rate 37 1-2
Cents per Hour���Eight Hour Day.
At last night's City Council meeting
in reference to the grading of Section 1,
it was moved by Aid. Patullo that the
City Engineer be authorized to advertize
thusiasm.   He also has travelled much now for tenders for these works,
and  yet  has  seen  no  scenery   to  be
cornpared with that of the Skeena.
Speaking last night of his long trip
with the exploration party from Edmonton, which was put in the field by H.
R. Charlton, general advertising agent
of the Grand Trunk Pacific, Mr. Lett
said its object was to describe and
illustrate the resources along the whole
lins, so as to be able to show the opportunities for colonization and individual investemnt in minerals, timber,
and the various classes of agriculture.
It was to obtain full information of
the country through which this part
of the transcontinental line passes, to
form a reliable compendium each point
of which is to have its accompanying
illustrations to explain it.
The party started from Edmonton,
where it was outfitted, with thirty pack
animals, three packers and a cook. They
carried sufficient provisions for two or
three weeks to  be  used  for side  ex*

Street Committee's Report on the
Matter Approved, also Reports on
Other Matters Including Grading
of Third Avenue.
'CONTINUED ON PAGE 6.)
The Streets Works and Property
Committee presented a number of reports to the City Council last night.
The committee cquld not report in
favor of granting Isabel Irvin Perks the
reinburaement for which she petitioned.
A recommendation in favor of the printing of the various city by-laws affecting
builders' estimates and other works of
this nature was made, and it was suggested by the committee that the other
committees should have the by-laws
affecting their departments printed also
at the same time to reduce expense. It
was pointed out that time was lost, and
inconvenience caused to contractors
owing to the difficulty of consulting the
by-laws in their present form. This
proposal was regarded favorably by the
Council, and the matter of printing of
by-laws will be gone into.
The Streets Committee also reported
regarding the removal of shacks and such
buildings from positions on the streets
and lanes where they were a source of
fire riBk and inconvenience to the fire
department.
Notices, according to the report, have
already been served upon the owners
of such buildings for some time requiring them to remove, but these have
not been enforced. It was recommended
that the City Clerk be now instructed
to write to the occupants of these
buildings imforming them that at the
expiration of six days the buildings
would be removed by the city if not
already removed by their owners. Aid.
Hilditch thought six days was rather
short notice, but it was pointed out
that the notices had been served already
for a considerable time.
Aid. Mobley remarked that of course
it would be impossible for some people
to get off in the six days, but if the
prospect of the city's undertaking the
nummary tearing down of the buildings
were in sight they might begin to think
about removing, and perhaps in about
a year they would be off the place.
(Laughter.)   The report was adopted.
The committee's report recommending
that the City Engineer's advice regarding
the alteration where feasible, "of the
grade of Third avenue be acted upon
was also adopted; and the same was
done in regard to the petition for grading
of Sixth avenue between Fulton street
and Summit avenue.

JURY'S FINDING IN INQUEST ON
CHARLES DAYLEY
Evidence that Deceased Was Intoxicated���Jury Recommend that
Perilous Plankway Be Closed���
Funeral of Victim.
Lots Are Well situated and Suitable
For the Purpose in View���Their
Price Is $5000 Each. Advantageous
Purchase for City.
At the City Council last night a resolution authorizing the Mayor and City
Clerk to take the necessary steps to
effect the purchase of Lots 44 and 45,
Block 17, Section One for a Bite for the
City Lighting Plant, was passed without
discussion on the recommendation of
the Telephone and Lighting Committee.
The price of the lots is $6000 each.
These lots have been carefully selected as the most suitable for the
purpose in view, and the Mayor and
aldermen were unanimously resolved
that the purchase would be an advantageous one for the city.
The adjourned inquest on the body of
Charles Dayley who met his death from
concussion of the brain caused by a fall
from a plankway across the creek in the
lane between First and Second avenues
not far from the Grand and Dominion
hotels, was continued at 8 o'clock last
night.
For fully an hour previous to Day ley's
fall he had been seen by no one, but
Sergeant Regan, of the city police force,
testified to having seen Dayley in the
neighborhood of First avenue and Eighth
street on the night of the accident,
Dayley was then evidently intoxicated
and was warned by Sergeant Regan.
Deceased's movements after that were
not definitely witnessed by any one,
but the crash of his fall was heard after
1 a.m., in the 22nd inst., from the
veranda of the Grand Hotel, and H
Hegarty told how Dayley had been
found in the little creek, having evidently
failed head first a distance of some ten
or twelve feet. The bottom of the creek
was rocky and Dayley's head was badly
cut. He was unconscious. Witness
described the man's removal to a shack
on Eighth street, and Dr. Tremayne
gave medical evidence as to Dayley's
injuries, removal to the police station
and hospital and subsequent death.
The following is the verdict:
We, the Jury, find; That the deceased
Charles Dayley met his death on the
morning of September, the 22nd, by
misadventure   through   falling   off   a
The motion was carried and the date
October 19th was suggested as a suitable
one to fix for the closing da*.;! for receiving of tenders by the Cfiy Clerk
up to the hour of twelve noon on that day.
In connection with these contracts
the Streets Committee have framed and
presented te> the City Council a report
affecting the contract conditions, the
following points being specially emphasized: The Committee recommended
that the word "Rock" be understood to
mean all rocks in masses exceeding 13
cubic feet in size. The minimum rate
of pay tor labor is recommended to be
fixed at 37 1-2 cents per hour.
The following clauses are recommended
to be inserted in the contracts:
A clause prohibiting men from being
employed for' more than^ eight hours
per day.
A clause prohibiting Sunday labor.
A clause requiring the contractor to
pay the men fortnightly and to produce
receipted pay rolls up to the time
estimate is made.
This report was approved by the City
Council.
Aid. Hilditch refened to'Uhe matter
of the labor dispute in connection with
the grading of Second avenue, and the
Mayor said that he had looked into the
matter and found that S. P. MeMordie
was within his rights in the matter, but
that the situation would right itself
very soon as the days were shortening
and a ten hour day would soon be impracticable, and even an eight hour
day difficult to complete. It was
entirely optional with the men whether
they chose to work overtime on not.
Aid. Hilditch: "Does that refer to
the new gang or the old?"
The Mayor: "I have not gone into
that point regarding the dispute."

between First and Second avenues.
We recommend that the thoroughfare
be either closed by the city or made
secure for pedestrians.���Signed by Geo.
Leek, Foreman of Jury, five jurymen,
and Coroner McMullin.
The funeral of the deceased Charles
Dayley was held today at the burial
island, Rev. W. F. Kerr pastor of the
First Presbyterian church officiated.
The funeral arrangements were in charge
of F. W. Hart & Co.

There can now be no doubt but that
King Gedrge V is to take an active interest in the turf. The entries for the
big classics of 1912 are published and
His Majesty has entered animals freely, which may be accepted as a sign
that he will soon follow turf affairs
as his father did, and it goes almost
without saying that a victory for the
royal colors either at Epsom or Don-
caster would be hailed with the greatest delight. In the Derby the king has
made five entries, and an equal number
have had the first forfeit paid in the
Oaks and St. Leger. King George became a member of the Jockey Club so
long ago as 1894. He has been a frequent visitor to Newmarket, Ascot and
Goodwood, and he was present on each
of the memorable occasions when King
Edward won the Derby. His Majesty
has of late years been a breeder of
blood stock on a small scale.
The king has also graciously consented to become patron of the amateur football association, and, in fact,
for every branch of sport he has at
one time or another shown that he has
a liking. He is particularly fond of
gun and rifle, and few men of his age
have had more variety of sport.    He

Prince Rupert is likely to become a
strong centre of interest for the Salvation Army, and the efforts of Ensign
and Mrs. Johnstone, Lieutenant Wright
and Captain Kerr are already being
appreciated by the citizens. Mayor
Stork has interested himself in a quiet
way with the work, and Ensign Johnstone much appreciates this.
It is Ensign Johnstone's intention to
prosecute with the utmost vigor all
branches of Salvation Army work in the
city, but first and foremost he wishes
it to be distinctly understood that he
is here to help wherever he can help
anyone in need of assistance regardless
of creed, denomination or nationality.
Ensign Johnstone will endeavor to meet
the needs of the men who may need his
assistance, and the Ensign wishes it
known that Mrs. Johnstone and Lieutenant Wright are at the service of the
women members of the community,
ready to help them at all times of need.
Already Ensign Johnstone has found
occasion to be of material aid in the
city.
Progress with the preparation Of the
site for the new Salvation Army Citadel
at the head of Sixth street is rapid.
The lots are being cleared and levelled
for the building. Ensign Johnstone
has ordered chairs in advance of the
erection of the hall, from a firm in this
city, so that there may be no delay in
starting up meetings once the hall is
ready.
The Salvation Army Conference takes
place in the course of the next ten days
at Vancouver, and it is probable that
Ensign Johnstone will go. south to take
part in it. He will probably be accompanied by Captain Kerr.
The ranks of the Salvation Army in
Prince Rupert are likely to be reinforced
shortly by the advent to the city of
several enthusiastic and experienced
permanent members.

then Prince of Wales in the fourth
place, after Lord de Grey, Lord Wal-

guns in such rapid succession that he
has had four dead pheasants falling
through the air at the same moment.

THE LICENSE LAW
According to some of the party press in the Province Attorney General Bowser
has at last turned out something good���the new license law. Of course there are
some who claim no license law is good, but even they, on making a choice of evils,
will probably admit that the new act shows traces of virtue. Just how it will work
in this city is speculative at the present time, for licenses are new and we are a
long way from the Attorney-General's secret service department. The Victoria
Colonist says of the new act: "Advices from all parts of the province are to the effect
that the new license law is working very well���perhaps just a little too well to suit
certain people. The Attorney-General set himself to work to prepare a measure
that would prevent as far as possible the abuses which are inseparable from the sale
of ihtoxicating liquors at drinking places, and he has succeeded to a degree that has
elicited warm words of approval from those who are able to take a dispassionate
view of the subject. But he realized that something more than a drastic statute
was necessary. No law will enforce itself and public opinion on the liquor traffic has
not reached that stage that private individuals care to be mixed up in prosecutions
for illegal sales or other violations of the statute. Therefore the responsibility for
the enforcement of the law was properly assumed by the Provincial Police and very
excellent work is being done in that direction . The people of British Columbia
now realize that Mr. Bowser was in earnest when he said that he would prepare a
far-reaching license law and see that it was enforced."
The Alfy organ is indeed fortunate that there is no penalty for working off a
rotten newspaper on the public.
Good civic administration cannot be expected from a bad system.   If you had
a million dollar business would you run it on the village council plan?
The financial journals are discussing the cause of the increased amount of
British capital being invested in outside securities. Prince Rupert is chiefly interested in how much of it is coming here.

Preaent Premises Must Soon 3e Vacated.     Temporary   Station.
Prince Rupert as a city has no jail
or police station of its own, the premises
at present occupied belonging to the
Provincial Goverment officers and police.
At last night's City Council the Mayor
stated that until arrangements were
concluded with the G. T. P. for a site
for the city police offices and jail, he had
rented the house formerly occupied by
Mr. Davis, in the rear of the Provincial
Buildings for $15 per month, to be used
as a temporary police station. No
doubt the Government cells will still be
available for some time for the accommodation of delinquents.
W. W. Leach on Silver Cup
Mr. W. W. Leach, Dominion Government Geologist, is probably as well
posted in all matters pertaining to,.he
development   and   successful  operation
of mining properties as any man in the
Dominion of Canada, in his recent
report concerning mineral developmet
in northern British Columbia he accords
Silver Cup his highest endorsement,
such a favorable report from an engineer
of such wide experience and prominence
as Mr. Leach is regarded as conclusive
evidence of a rich and valuable mining
property.
An official in the employ of the
Canadian Mining and Smelting company
recently made an exhaustive examination of the Silver Cup ore bodies.
His assays gave returns of slightly better
than $100 per ton in silver and lead,
his report concerning the continuity of
the ore bodies was unqualifiedly favorable and strongly of the opinion that
the property is one of exceptional merit
and great promise.
Since Mr. Leach visited the property
a tunnel of 200 feet in length has been
driven on the ore and developed about
225 feet of vertical bucks the ore has
increased in quantity with depth and
the high values have maintained.

���TRIP ALONG THE
RAILWAY GRADE
CONTINUED PROM PAGE 1
Icursions,  depending   mainly   on   the
engineering camps  they  would   come
across from day to day.   As a general
the grade was followed closely,
In that the results of the trip would be
i true representation  of  what   could
be seen from the railway when it is ih
operation.
There were dangers on the trip, of
I course, the most important of which
were in the fording of the rivers.   At
tie time of the journey the waters were
t their highest, owing to the warm
|��ather of the end of June and the
.{inning of July melting the glaciers.
|This would cause the rivers to rise as
much as a foot during the afternoon,
1 come swirling down with mighty
force.   The cold nights  arrested  the
and the waters would fall or
un at about   a    stationary stage
1 nearly noon of the next day.   The
ty, therefore,  had  to   choose   the
.logical  moment   at   which'  to
To do this necessitated some

Jae homes was likely to be found.

SC,.1^ P"t. and the
theNwi2tthTirhepost��f
rur Trading company,
the great competitor of the gentlemen
adventurers of the Hudson's Bay company. Pictures were taken of the ruins
of these two landmarks of the wilderness,
and the historical data obtained was
not without interest, Tete Jaune Cache
and Yellowhead Pass being geogeaph|cal
terms now on the tip of the tongue of
the reading world.
The fust, factor of this Hudson's Bay
trading post was named Jasper Hawes,
a Scotchman. In tho course of time the
name got corrupted into Howes, and
later into House. Thus the name of
Jasper House. Jasper was a big burly
fellow with light auburn hair and beard,
both worn long. The voyageurs called
him Tete Jaune, and the Indians in
their tongue made it Yellowhead. This
is how we get sush important geographical names as Tete Jaune Cache,
which may some time soon be the site
of a great interior city, and the fanous
name of Yellowhead Pass.
Mr. Lett says thiB pass through the
Rockies of which the members of his
exploration party had read so much,
was something of a disappointment to
them in one way. They expected to
climb up to a narrow gorge and struggle
along a rock strewn trail between precipitous walls showing the sky through
a narrow slit.
"Whoa," cried Mr. Lett, bringing his
party to a sudden halt. "We are on the
other side of the Rockies now; how do
you like it?"
"Through the Rockies! But where's
the pass?" they asked.
"Just passed through it," was the
laughing reply. This pass through the
mountain chain which forms the backbone of the continent, explained Mr.
Lett, is as level as a floor for one thousand feet, and the railway grade there
is only four-tenths of one per cent.
Talking of this started Mr. Lett's
enthusiasm.
"Our railway grade through the
Rockies," he remarked, "is but twenty-
six feet to the mile. I could tell you
what the grades are on other railways,
but look it up for yourself. With such
a railway grade we can haul a trainload
of wheat all the way from the prairies
to the seaboard at Prince Rupert with
one locomotive. And what quantities
of wheat we shall have to haull Saskatchewan, now the great wheat producing province, has today less than
three per cent of its lands under cultivation, and it has a territory of two
hundred and fifty thousand square
miles. How much wheat will that
province be raising when it has twenty-
five per cent of its land under cultivation? And a very large percentage
of this enormous- harvest will have to
be shipped westward."
Getting back to the incidents on the
trip, Mr. Lett mentioned a stop that
was made at the Miette river, where
the road branches to the west from the
Athabaska river toward Yelllowhead
Pass. "There is a very swift place to
ford at this point," said Mr. Lett, "and
I took the lead. Halfway across the
water began to be deep a. well as swift,
and I waved to tho e following to keep
up. 1 noticed a large spruce reaching
over the water, and anyone acquainted
with fording knows he must avoid an
obstruction of that' kind or he may
become entangled in the branches.
"Soon after, and just as I was getting
to dry land I heard a shout and looking
back saw one of my party clinging to
the tree, having been swept from the
saddle, I supposed. His horse was
standing about four feet away, evidently bewildered. As he clung the
swift current carried the man's legs
right under the tree, the toes almost
sticking up. I rushed to the tree and
climbed out well over him. He was
afraid the tree* would break with the
weight of both of us, because he was
what you may call a tenderfoot. I gave
a vigorous tug at him but failed to haul
him out. He explained that his clothes
had become entangled in a broken
branch. But I managed to land-him, all
right.
"One poinUn regard to this is perhaps
worth mentioning. Before leaving London he had been examined by a physician, who had said if he should get a
spill into the water it was liable to
prove fatal because of heart trouble.
This was glacier water, and. we could
not very well make a fire, so I told him
to walk and let his clothes dry on him.
He did so and was none the worse when
we reached camp. "Seems to me these
London doctors are very ignorant of
the effects of Canadian waters," he
observed.
"We had another incident that was
thrilling at the moment. The horse of
one of the party took the bit in his
teeth and stampdeed. I saw the animal
burst through the bushes on his headlong career and go over a cilff. The
man's sombero was tied to the rear of
the saddle and as it flew out I thought
the man had gone over too, and it
horrified me a little. But a low branch
had swept him off and saved his life."
Not many such stories has Mr. Lett
to tell, as with him such incidents are
merely a part of the day's work; but as
to the recources of the country through
which he passed on the trip he is a whole
mine of solid information. He can pick
up a piece of rock while talking and tell
its genesis and the particular stratification it comes from. It starts him on
another tack of enthusiasm. The country is to him full of mineral wealth. We
have  not  nearly  enough   prospectors,
he declares; but rich finds and easier
means of ingress to the mineral zone
will remedy that, and the richest finds,
in his opinion, are yet to be made. In
this respect Mr. Lett is an authority, as
it was largely due to his explorations
that the Gowganda country was opened
up.
"Along the Fraser river almost every
stream from the north carries gold," he
observes. "Colors are found everywhere, and there is also plenty of silver-
lead ore, copper and some free-milling
gold quartz. The Telkwa and Babine
ranges are already coming to the front
as good mining propositions. I brought
out with me many samples of silver-
lead and copper ores, calculated to assay
well. All the Skeena basin is well
mineralized, but in regard to all these
places there is the difficulty of getting
material into the country. If a man
gets in, a few drills and some sticks of
dynamite he thinks he is doing pretty
well. But as fast as the railway reaches
those points there is certain to be a
rapid jump in their development. I
feel pretty confident there will be producing mines all along the Skeena in
a very few years. \
"And just think what a market these
growing mining camps will make for
the farmer. The land on this side is
better suited for mixed fzrming and
dairying than for cereals, and there is
also abundance of fruit lands. There is
no country in tke world to be compared
for richness of resources with this new
empire the railway is opening up."
Mr. Lett harked back to tell of the
discovery of a pretty lake in the shadow
of Mount Robson that was discovered
and named Lake Helena, and the difficulty of cutting a trail through the
dense forest foliage to it. The company
will have trails to all,such scenic points,
he says, for the benefit of the tourists.
He also believes big game hunters from
all parts of the world will come to the
neighborhood of. Mount Robson to hunt
when once they are posted on the game
of the country. Everywhere, he
says, is there not only evidence of its
being a good game country but the
Indians of'that part are the most improvident and wanton destroyers of
game to be found anywhere.     .  '
Going back to prospectors he said
that at Moberley house, just back of
Jasper House, they met two prospectors
who were very mysterious as to what
they were after. A couple of weeks
later the two mwn crossed their trail
again and said they had not found what
they were looking after. But one of the
packers knew. He said they were after
a band of wild horses. It seems there
are a number of such herds. Men go
out and capture them on the rich grass,
break them in and sell them for good
prices.
"We met with all kinds of prospectors,
of course," said Mr. Lett, "but that was
the first time I had run across horse
prospectors."
WATER MAINS
WHERE WANTED
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
City Engineer and Aid. Mclntyre thought
a new pipe should be ordered and put
in. He suggested that the Mayor himself would keenly appreciate the fire
risk to his own property in this congested neighborhood.
The Mayor: "I have got beyond
feeling in that respect now."
Aid. Mobley pointed out that the
2-inch main referred to by Aid. Mclntyre was not the only protection
against fire in this district. Three
separate lines of hose could be led to any
point on Sixth street or adjoining it
with a water supply of high pressure
water more than equal to that given
by a aS-inch main on Sixth street. Of
course if .a 6-inch main were laid on
Sixth street it would enable two hose
lines to be connected, if need arose, to
the 6-inch main which would be an
advantage.
The Mayor, in reference to this matter
of the water piping of the city, and the
putting in of permanent pipes before
the permanent grading was done, said
that the City Engineer was going into
this matter of the pipes, and as the
Mayor understood was not much in
favor of the wire bound wood stave
pipes for the city's permanent water
supply. He thought the matter should
have further consideration.
Police Magistrate'* Request Granted
City Police Magistrate, A. Carss, in
a letter to the City Council read by tha
Clerk last night stated that a conviction
made by him recently of a personage
on one of the steamboats had been
quashed on the ground that the steamer
was not within the city bounds at the
time of the man's offence. The Magistrate requested that he be supplied with
accurate maps of the city and harbor
with boundaries marked, also copies of
the city by-laws in reference to police
court proceedings, and further with a
copy of the latest work on the subject,
namely, "Crankshaw on the Criminal
Code." On the motion of Aid. Patullo
it was agreed to grant the Magistrate's
request.  ' ^fl

ASSAYS AVERAGE HIGH
Six Different Assays Made of Four-
mile Silver-Lead Ores
E. L. Kinman, who is at work, developing the Erie group of claims at Fourmile
Mountain, has been sending samples to
Vancouver during the summer, and the
following shows the assay values obtained:
No.   1.���Gold   $2.00;    silver   1300
ounces, value $660.  Total $662.
��� No. 2.���Gold $0.60; silver 610 ounces,
value $266; copper 3.2 per cent, value
$6.40. Total $262.
No. 3.���Silver 93 ounces, value $46.60:
lead 39 per cent.   Total $76.
No. 4.���Silver 124 ounces, value $62;
lead 74 per cent.  Total $128.
No. 6.���Silver 246.6 ounces, lead 60.8
percent.  Total$273.
No. 6.���Silver 108.2 ounces, lead 39.2
percent.  Total $86.91.
What accounts for the astonishing
values in the samples No. 1 is the presence
of argentite which occurs scattered
through the other ore and in stringers
of quartz up to four inches in width,
in irregular shaped masses up to the size
of a man's thumb, constituting high
grade streaks through the ordinary
galena.

ARMENIAN HUSBAND TAKES LAW

cross the Ocean.
Lowell, Mass., Sept. 25.���After a
sharp pistol battle on the steps of the
post office building today while a
crowd was passing in the streest, Bogos
Matsukian, Armenian, who slew one
of his countrymen and wounded another,
told the police his act was one of vengeance. He killed Mohammed Ahmad
and fatally wounded Ahmed Noory.
Noory and Ahmed fled from Armenia
to America, Matsukian declared, after
they had murdered his wife there.
He slew them to avenge her death.
Taken to jail the Armenian calmly
lit a cigarette and told his story to
the police.
"They killed her, my wife," he said.
"I killed them. 'Tis well. I am glad.
I knew both men in Armenia. They
visited my house there. I supposed
them friends.
"During the recent massacres I was
compelled to flee to America. Then my
countrymen told me these men maltreated my wife and murdered her. I
swore I would kill them if we ever
met. They came here not knowing I
was here. I met, I killed one, and the
other dog will die. They got what
they had earned. The authorities can
do with me as they like. I am satisfied.   My honor is avenged."
Noory regained consciousness after
the shooting . He said he had not
killed Mrs. Matsukian.

Letters to the Editor
"Fair Play For Everybody'"
'Why bark at the Quakers? What
does the editor of the Empire know of
them?
Philadelphia, U. S. A., was founded by
a Quaker in 1680. There was established the first paper mill, the first type
foundry, the first insurance company,
the first bank, and the first medical
school in the colonies though New York
and Jamestown had been settled more
than half a century earlier.
Quakers both in England and on the
Continent have an enviable record
both in municipal administration and
in commercial activities.
It would be no detriment to the city
aldermen were they to carry on their
deliberations with foresight, method and
sound judgment "like a lot of Quakers."
Perhaps that Editor will someday visit
a Quaker's business meeting and judge
of their methods of procedure for himself���perhaps he might apologize for his
disparaging remark.
Because Quakers believe in the "Inner
Light" they do not therefore dispense
with adequate external lighting of their
own homes or of their own cities where
they have control of city affairs. Also
there is nothing antagonistic in the
tenets of the Quakers to those of the
Salvation Army���one may be demonstrative with "flute, harp, sackbutt,"
etc., and the other silent and retiring���
but extremes meet, and in the populous
districts of many cities the two are
found working hand in glove together.
More About Licenses
To the Editor of the Optimist:
Sir,���I notice in last night's edition of
your paper a wail from a gentleman who
uses a siganture which the majority of
us must take on trust, as he has not been
kind enough to furnish us with a translation.   Stripped of rhetoric his claim
seems to be that there is more drunkenness in Prince Rupert at the present
time than there was before the granting
, of licenses.   Whether or not this is the
i case I am not prepared to say.    It is
! quite possible that a good many of those
j who now get drunk openly used to get
j drunk secretly in their shacks and that
I the difference is more apparent than real.
! But if the charge is true is it not a little
I early to decry the license system and the
j Provincial Liquor Law? Everyone knows
; that repressive measures always lead to
a period of excess when the lid is taken
off but things very soon get to a normal
level, and this is happening in Prince
Rupert at the present time.
It is quite true that the new act
prohibits the sale of liquor to an intoxicated man in a licensed bar but
there are, unfortunately, still some of
the "blind pigs" left over from the
regime which our so-called temperance
friends are so anxious to bring back.
(In which endeavor they are enthusiastic-
ly endorsed by the keepers of these
"blind pigs.") I know of one instance
in which a man got tanked up at one of
these resorts and then went in to a
licensed bar. Here he was refused a
drink and staggered out and the passers-
by of course jumped to the conclusion
that he got his load in the hotel.
Let us use a little common sense. We
have a lot of working men in the city
who would be rather out of place at a
meeting of the W. C. T. U. and who are
accustomed to spend their money as
they see fit. If they sometimes get
drunk in Prince Rupert it is only what
they have done a score of times in
Vancouver and Victoria without causing
either of those cities to be visited with
the doom of Sodom and Gomorrah.
You can't make a man moral by building
a fence around him and as long as these
men have money in their pockets they
are going to drink what they feel like
drinking even if they have to go some
where else to get it. Of course it might
not be quite so offensive to our friend
with the Latin signature if these men
took the money they had earned in
Prince Rupert and got drunk in Vancouver but I submit that they buy
other things than booze in the town
and the town needs their patronage.
"COMMON SENSE."
FURTHER FIRE PRECAUTIONS
Widening   of   Plankway*   and    the
House Moving Difficulty
A recommendation from Fire Chief
Mclnnes that the side walks on parts
of Second avenue and elsewhere where
necessary throughout the city, be widened sufficiently to let the hose reels and
wagons pass along them in case of a
fire, was discussed and approved. Aid.
Hilditch wanted to know if the cost of
this would be borne by the Local Improvement or General Fund. Aid.
Mobley explained that the whole cost
of widening these walks where necessary
would be very trifling. The Mayor
drew attention to the present condition
of Second avenue under grading operations, and said it would be rather difficult
to get the fire appliances to a fire in that
neighborhood that way. Arrangements
will be made to meet the difficulty.
In this connection the matter of
owners moving their buildings along
the streets was suggested as a source of
difficulty for the Fire Chief. Aid.
Barrow thought that it should be compulsory on owners in such cases to keep
their houses on the move till past the
intersections of streets and not to leave
them stationary at such points.    Aid.

Hilditch suggested that the houses be
marked by lights at night, and a recommendation that the Fire Chief be kept
informed of the position of the houses
from time to time so that he might
chose routes avoiding the obstruction
when proceeding to a fire, was adopted.
Petition   For   Plankway
A petition to the City Council last
night that a 16-foot plankway be constructed in Section Seven along Ambrose
avenue from the junction between Sixth
and Hays Cove avenues to the junction
between Sixth avenue and Donald
street, was referred to the Streets,
Works and Property Committee for
consideration.
