THE RUPERT FIRE BY-LAW
GIVEN   SECOND   READING   AND
WILL BE PASSED TONIGHT.
Chief has Full Control of the Department end Men, but is Subiect
to Instruction from the Committee
on Fire and Water.
The council last night took up the
second reading of By-law No. 4 which
regulates the fire department. Some of
the more important features of it are as
follows:-
On motion of Aid. Mobley the by-law
to regulate the Prince Rupert Fire Department was read a second time and the
council went into committee of the whole
and discussed it clause by clause. Aid.
Mobley in the chair.
The by-law is number 4. The city
shall have full control over the department and the equipment. The department shall consist of a chief and such
others as the committee may deem advisable. The men will be engaged and
discharged by the chief of the department. The salary of the chief
shall be fixed by the council and the
salary of all other officers and men shall
be fixed by the committee. All members
of the brigade must be 21 years old and
must furnish a medical certificate. Call
members shall attend all calls and sleep in
the hall and be subject to the chief at all
times.
The chief shall be executive officer
and shall be subject to orders of the
committee. He must make regular reports on all matters. He shall have full
charge of all property of the department.
The chief shall investigate cause of all
fires and keep a record. He shall examine
all places where wood, lumber and so
forth are stored. He shall keep in touch
with the building inspector and thus
be conversant on all new buildings. He
shall make recommendations and suggestions to the committee to improve the
brigade.
Each member shall be given one week's
holiday each year on full pay. No
liquors are allowed on or drunk in the
fire hall, The chief shall have power to
make rules and regulations governing
the fire department.
No one shall throw a lighted cigar or
cigarette on the streets of Prince Rupert.
Anyone found doing so will be subject
to the penalty provided by this by-law..
No person shall have a bonfire within
75 feet of any wooden building without
the permission of the fire chief. This includes burning stumps, wood, shavings
refuse, etc.
The penalty is up to ijilOO and costs
or 3 months in jail.
The committee rose and reported
progress.
NO LICENSE COMMISSION
APPOINTMENTS FAILED TO COME
THROUGH  IN TIME.
Licenses Will  Not Be Granted Now
Until September.���Commissioners
Cannot   Meet   Sooner. Many
Citizens are Glad of the Failure
Up to noon today License Commissioners V. W. Smith and J. E. Merryfield
had received no notification from the
department at Victoria of their appointment. Yesterday, Wednesday June 8, was
sent as the date for the first meeting
and the second meeting will not be until
September. The Commission was not
appointed and no meeting was held thus
no liquor licenses can be considered or
granted until September. A large number
of those aspiring for licenses of various
kinds are feeling disappointed but there
is apparently no salve for their wounds.
Prince Rupert will continue to be a
(supposedly; dry town for another three
months.
Mayor Stork stated that there was
no help for it unless special permission
was granted by the Lieut-Governor-in-
Council.
Wm. Manson, M. P. P., was asked
what he thought of that idea and he replied that he did not consider such a
thjng was possible. Mr. Manson also
stated that he had received word that the
commissioners would be appointed on
Tuesday last and why Cie word did not
come through he cpuld not say. There
was something wrong down below.
The citizens generally do not appear
to worry very much about the appointments not coming through. At the worst
it is only a short time to wait until
September, and some who were spoken to
even expressed themselves as pleased
that the licenses cannot be granted yet.
One man said "The council will be able to
spend a little more time on their liquor
license bylaw and get it in such shape
that it will meet with the modern idea
of controlling the liquot traffic."
The delay will also enable all applicants tn comply with the requirements
regarding the advertising of their applications before any of the applications
can be considered. Thus all will have a
fair chance.
AT THE BOARD   CALL
Brisk    Bidding    Confined    to    Few
Leading Stocks
Thirteen hundred and fifty shares was
the sum total of the business done at the
Mining Association stock exchange at
the call hour this morning, although there
was some brisk bidding at very close
quarters. Leading stocks held as strong
as on the previous day, and they were
the feature of the call. Most of the interests centered on Portland Canal, which
closed yesterday at 38 1-4 bid and today
went up to 39 1-2 the latter being the
same as the wired Vancouver quotation. Main Reef also went up. It opened
at 38 and sold at 3d 1-2. These were the
features of this morning.
COMMITTED  FOR  TRIAL
Edward Leighton Will Have to Face
for Stabbing Lydia Calvert.
Edward Leighton, the Indian, was up
for a hearing before Magistrate Mc
Mullen yesterday afternoon and was
committed for trial. Leighton is charged
with having stabbed Lydia Calvert, his
sweetheart in Mrs. Sam Pierce's house,
a couple of weeks ago,. The girl is now
out of t he hospital and was the chief witness for the crown yesterday. She does
not accuse Leighton of the charge in the
way of a complainant, but she admitted
her evidence that it was he who did it.
Mrs. Pierce and William Dudoward,
the half breed who was at the house the
same night, also testified, stating that
Leighton told them he committed the
deed. Dr. Eggert was called and told his
story which was practically the same as
was given in the Optimist at the time of
the crime. Chief of Police McCarvel
also testified to the effect that he removed a blood stained shirt from the
prisoner. The magistrate considered
there was plenty of evidence to commit
the prisoner for trial and he did so.
Leighton will appear before Judge
Young next week for election.
MUST HURRY CONTRACTS
ELECTRIC LIGHT PLANT TAKES
TWO MONTHS TO MAKE.
Must get Wharf and Pole Line Started Very Soon���Lights to Be Burning by October, Says Engineer
James Milne.
Engineer Jas. Milne was present and
again urged the council last night to hurry
the signing of the contract. It will take
two and a half months before any of the
machinery is shipped and it will take a
month to get up here. It will bo about
October before the lights are burning
on the streets. The council must get its
wharf under way at once so as to receive
the machinery. The pole line must be
started within three weeks. Then the
foundations for the powerhouse will have
to be got started very shortly.
On the suggestion of the mayor the
engineer will be instructed to get out
plans at once for a wharf and that tenders
be called for, for the construction of same.

NEW STEAMERS DESCRIBED j ZTlf^HZe^lZ
! ENGLISH   JOURNAL   TELLS
GRAND TRUNK LiNERS.
OF
Prince Rupert and Prince George the
Finest Boats on Pacific Coast.���The
Precursors of a very Large Fleet
Grand Trunk Will Build.
Last Saturday, the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company's new steamer
"Prince George" which has been built by
Messrs. Swan,Hunter and Wigham Richardson, of Wallsendon-Yyne,and engined
by the Wallsend Slipway and Engineering Company, Ltd., left the Tyne on her
voyage to British Columbia, a journey
of some 15,000 miles. The Prince George
is the second vessel built at Wallsend-
on-Tyne, by Messrs. Swan, Hunter and
Wigham Richardson, Ltd., to the order
of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
Company, the other ship being the
"Prince Rupert," which left England
early last month for British Columbia.
Both the ships have been carefully
designed on order to meet the special
requirements of the new passenger service between Prince Rupert, Vancouver,
Victoria, B. C. and Seattle,(U.S.A.). The
builders have been greatly assisted in
their endeavors by Mr. Richard L.
Newman, of Victoria, B. C. the very able
naval architect of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Company, who has supervised
the construction of both ships.
The route which these new steamers
will take is some 750 miles long, and is a
very picturesque one, lying entirely
among the islands off the coast. Of all
the lands on that side of the American
continent, there is none which has so
bright a future as British Columbia,
lying like a young giant facing the sunsets upon the great Pacific Coast. Its
fine navigable water ways, its great areas
of fertile agriculture and grazing lands,
its magnificent forests, its coal fields and
rich stores of other minerals, its fisheries,
its fruit growing timber, dairying and
wheat growing industries make the land
The route of these new steamers
is some 750 miles long, and is a very picturesque one, lying entirely among the
islands off the coast. Of all the lands on
that side of the American continent,
there is none which has so bright a
future as British Columbia, lying like
a young giant facing the sunsets upon
the great Pacific coast. Its fine navigable waterways, its great areas of
fertile agricultural and grazing lands,
its magnificent forests, its coal fields and
rich stores of other minerals, its fisheries,
fruit growing, timber, dairying and wheat
growing industries make the land second
to none as an Imperial asset among
the world-wide dominions of the British
Crown. The climate of the country is
pre-eminently healthy, and all that is
wanted is immigration of the right sort.
At present, British Columbia is one of the
most purely British in race of all our
colonies, and it is worth an effort to keep
it so. The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
has its terminus at the new port of Prince
Rupert. The new railway line right across
the continent will soon be completed, and
will eventually make Prince Rupert a
port second to none in Canada.
During the previous week, the "Prince
George" completed her trials at sea off
the mouth of the River Tyne, when a
speed of over nineteen knots was op-
tained. The twin-screw triple expansion
engines by the Wallsend Slipway and
Engineering Company have four cylinders and cranks, which are balanced
on the Well, Yarrow, Schlick and Tweedy
system, ensuring perfectly smooth run
ning and eliminating vibration. The
chief dimensions of the ship are 320ft.
overall, 42ft. 2in, wide, with a depth
of 1."-ft. to the main deck; the gross tonnage being 3,400. With her three funnels,
two pole masts and a rounded cruiser
stern the vessel presents a very smart
appearance. V
In the interior the wide, lofty and
well-lighted corridors, and the staircases
surmounted by handsome domes, at once
indicate the superior class of the ship.
There is cabin accommodation for some
saloon, furnished in mahogany, is on the
main deck in the rounded cruiser stern,
making a handsome room, of unusual
and attractive shape. On the shade deck
aft is a luxurious smoke-room and on the
same deck forward is the observation
room, most comfortably furnished with
ample provision for easy chairs. Both
these apartments have large square windows so that passengers can enjoy an
uninterruped view of the scenery. The
music-room is on the shelter deck aft.
The "Prince George" is fitted with wireless telegraphy apparatus, refrigerating
machinery, electric light and steam
heating.
On invitation of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company 7nd Messrs,.
Swan, Hunter and Wigham Richardson,
Ltd., between forty and fifty guests were
taken for a cruise on the "Prince George"
last week-end from Wallsend-on-Tyne to
Falmouth, this constituting the first
stage (540 miles) of the long voyage to
British Columbia. On this trip the builders were represented by Aldermen G. B.
Hunter (chairman of the company),
Messrs. C. S. Swan and G. B. Richardson,
and the owners by Mr. Fred S. Salter
(European traffic manager) and Mr.
Louis Leopold (industrial and advertsing
agent). The passengers included Mr.
Richard L. Newman (naval architect and
consulting engineer to the Grand Trunk
Pacific Company) and Mrs. Newman,
Mr. J. A. F. AspinalKpresident of the
Institutioon of Mechanical Engineers and
general manager of the Lancashire and
Yorkshire Railway), Mr. Dixon H. Davis
(solicitor to the Great Central Railway),
Mr. A. Hacking(solicitor's office, Great
Central Railway), Mr. F. B. Girdlcstone
(general manager of the Avonmouth
Docks), Mr. Benson Taylor (British
Corporation), Mr. S. J. P. Thearle
(Lloyd's Register) and representative
Mr. J. H. Turner, Agent-General for
British Columbia.
Leaving Wallsend Saturday noon, the
vessel proceeded slowly down the Tyne,
giving excellent views of the shipbuilding
and docking activities on both sides of the
river, an interesting object being the new
super - Dreadnaught "Hercules," just
ready for launching. On reaching the
North Sea the "Prince George" headed
South at full speed. Delightful weather
was experienced, the vessel being sheltered by the East Coast from a fairly
strong westerly wind. During the afternoon a wireless jnessage was sent to the
shore for transmission to Montreal,
informing Mr. C. N. Hays, president
of the Grand Trunk, that the new boat
was under way. On Sinday morning the
"Prince George" was off the mouth of
the Thames, and the weather was bright
and summer-like as the vessel turned
west into the English Channel, giving
a splendid view of the new harbour
at Dover. As the day advanced, speed
somewhat slackened under a strong head
wind.and during the afternoon rain and
hail were encountered between Brighton
and Kelsey, but the weather soon brightened again, and it was quite clear when
Portland Bill was passed about midnight
on Sunday. The picturesque Cornish
coast came into view early on Monday
morning, and the "Prince George" was
taken into Falmouth Harbour and
anchored by 9 o'clock. By arrangement
with the great Western Railway, a special train conveyed the party from Falmouth to Paddington, running ahead of
the "Cornish Rivera Express." the journey of nearly 300 miles being performed
in about 5 3-4 hours.
After the passengers had landed,
Captain Underhay made his ship ready
for her long voyage to British Columbia,
going via the Straits of Magellan. This
is the same route as was taken by her
sister ship, the "Prince Rupert" which
sailed from Wallsend-on-Tyne on April
2nd, and is due at Vancouver on May 30.
The "Prince George" i3 expected to
arrive at Vancouver during the first week
in July.
The coasting cruise to Falmouth was
most thoroughly enjoyed by the little
party on board the "Prince George."
The wdather was genial enough to keep
the passengers on deck during the greater

PLEA FOR HOME SUPPORT.
Too   Many  People  Buying  Supplies
From Outside Towns.
LAND  PURCHASE  NOTICE
A prominent business man who has
erected at least one large block in the city
was heard to remark the other day on the
unblushing manner in which so many
citizens, and even some of the men
purchase their personal requirements
from Vancouver, Seattle and Winnipeg.
He said it was surprising the amount of
stuff brought in from outside points that
could be purchased here or at least ordered through the local merchants. Anyone
guilty of that practice is not a good
citizen and demonstrates by his actions i
that he cares nothing for the welfare of
Prince Rupert. Home patrongage is
what makes a city, and it is up to every- ]
one to buy their supplies in Prince
Rupert, where their money was and is
being made.

Healthograms
Dr. W. E. Evans, Chicago's Commissioner of Health, has issued a series of "healthograms"���epigrams relating to sanitation and health. Here
are a few samples.
"Filth  for  flies  and  flies  for fever.
"When you don't know what to eat
��� eat nothing.
"Dark living rooms speedily plant
candles at your head.
"Teasing baby to make it laugh is
a crying shame. .
"The birth of a fly may mean the
death of a baby; kill the flies and save
the babies.
"A heap of rubbish about your house
is a tombstone to your self-respect and
civic pride."
If you want to have a good time at
the Eagle dance, get a suit made or
your clothes pressed at Rudnick, Swe-
der Bros., merchant tailors, Third avenue, to the right of Sixth street.    29d

NOT ALLOWED Tp LAND.
Aliens   for   Prince   Rupert   Turned
Back When Here.
By the terms of a new Canadian law,
which went into effect May 2, no foreigner is allowed to land in Canada
without having a through ticket from the
country of which he is native.
When the City of Seattle arrived.in
Ketchikan this week, it has a number of
Austrians, who shipped from Seattle to
Prince Rupert but were not allowed to
land as they has sailed from an American
port, consequently they were brought
here and later returned to Seattle. ��
No foreigner visiting in America will
be allowed to go to Canada. The object
of the law does not seem to be clear, but
it is probably to secure all the western
passenger business from New York for
the Canadian roads thus stopping the
present practice of shipping from Europe
to New York via Seattle for western
Canada.���Ketchikan Miner.
ENTRANCE EXAMINATIONS.
Begin on Monday Next with Thirteen
Candidates Writing.
The first high school entrance examination to be written on in Prince Rupert
will be held next week beginning on Monday, June 13th, and continuing until
the 15th. There will be 12 or 18 pupils
writing here from the local school and
from Port Essington. This examination
is conducted by the department of education at Victoria and is one of the hardest
tests for the age and scope of the pupils.
Inspector Dean is in the city on his
regular tour of inspection and he will
combine with those duties the office
of presiding examiner at the entrance
examinations. The result of these trials
will be watched with considerable interest
by the citizens generally as the educational system of the city is of paramount
importance.

part of the journey, but in the evenings
and during the short spell of inclement
weather experienced in the English
Channel, the luxurious accommodation
between decks was greatly appreciated.
Certainly no better appointed vessels
than the two new Grand Trunk steamers
have been built for coasting trade. Ihe
"Prince George" has been built up like
an oceangoing liner, and the interior
arrangements bear comparison with
those of the most popular of our floating
palaces. In the construction of these
vessels the Grand Trunk Pacific Co.
determined to secure the best which
skill and science could devise, and no
better security for the prestige of its fleet
could be provided than by placing the
work in the hands of the builders of the
"Mauretania." As regards sea-going
qualities, the fact that these vessels
have been built to cross the Atlantic
Ocean and to complete a voyage of
15,000 miles before reaching their destination is sufficient evidence of their
stoutness. The first steamer, the "Prince
Rupert," has already proved this by her
successful braving of the rigours of the
Atlantic. During the heavy weather
experienced in April she behaved splendidly, and those who saw the "Prince
George" push her nose into the Channel
chops last Sunday were of opinion the
new boat had already "found herself" and
would worthily follow in the track of her
precursor. The complete absence of
vibration, even when travelling at high
speed, was remarked by all the passengers
this immunity being secured by the
system of balancing the engines already
referred to. The sleeping berths were
most comfortably furnished, and all
the guests were impressed by the kindly
care and forethought for their comfort
on a ship to which the finishing touches
had only been put a few hours before
sailing. The catering was on the most
lavish scale, and was carried out by T.
Oliver, of South Shieldsm who also,
victualled the ship for her long voyage
to British Columbia.
After dinner on Saturday Dr. G. B.
Hunter (chairman of Messrs. Swan,
Hunter and Wigham Richardson:, in
proposing the toast of the "Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway," said he understood that
the Grand Trunk intended to have the
finest fleet of steamships in the world.
They had begun by building two���
the "Prince Rupert" and the "Prince
George"���and those boats would certainly be the finest vessels on the Pacific
coast. They were the precursors of a
large fleet, which he believed they
would command in the next few years.
IA. transpacific; service would probably
be the first to be inauguarated, and
shortly after that he hoped there would
be a Grand Trunk trans-Atlantic service
also. Judging by the way in which the
Grand Trunk Pacific Company planned
and carried out their undertakings, and
judging by the success with which Mr.
C. M. Hays chose the right men to carry
out his policy, he was convinced that
their future steamship lines, both on the
Pacific and on the Atlantic would be
successfully established. The toast was
responded to by Mr. F. C. Salter and
Mr. R. L. Newman.
As will be gathered from Dr. Hunter's
remarks it is as the nucleus of the Grand
Trunk fleet that the two new coasting
steamers are of special interest. Conjecture has been rife as to when the Grand
Trunk intend to participate in the trans-
Atlantic trade, but it may be now regarded as definitely decided that a Pacific service will first be inauguarated
and that the company will be prepared
to establish a line of steamships from
their Western Terminal to Yokohama by
the time the line from Piince Rupert
is connected with the existing trans-continental railway. The construction of
only some 400 miles of railways is now
necessary to link up these sections, and it
is anticipated that this will be completed
before the end of 1912.

Nine shots were fired from the excavation work on the bluff back of the Grand
second shot, which seemed to shake the
Trunk warehouses to-day and at the
buildings, all the workers on the wharves
rapidly scurried to cover. No one was
hurt and no damage done.
The Rupert City came in shortly after
eight o'clock last night, bringing about
eighty passengers. This is her last trip
on this run, as the Prince Rupert will be
here next week and the Rupert City will
go into the freighting business for
Iditarod. She left on her last trip out
from this port with a good passenger list,
among whom were the following:-
J. Kindrat, Mrs. Steel, J. Marcus, M. A.
Kraitz, C. Johnson, G. K. Elderkin,
W. A. Travis, H. J. Wade, J. M. Dudley,
Ed. Huggins, S. B. Crapp, G. Steele,
H. C. Arnold, H. C. Averly, L. Yates,
E. Johnson, M. Steinberg and A. Brink-
man.
The new river steamer Inlander arrived
here at nine o'clock last night and owing
to the large amount of freight awaiting
her pulled out at a very hour this morning.     Captain Bucey said the first trip
of the new boat had been a splended one
for a new boat, but she had too heavy
a load of freight to handle to make her
best time. The way the water is now she
will be able to distance every boat on the
river. The stage of the water now,
observed Captain Bucey, is 2 feet 8 inches, and 2 feet is reckoned the danger
mark on the river. But she is a boat that
is safe and speedy on 2 feet f inches of
water. The Inlander had a big load of
freight and several passengers.
As
Council   Meeting
per  usual  the  city  fathers  will
gather around the board at 8 o'clock tonight and discuss civic business.
