IJTE FOR THE NEW POSTOFFICE
ilGINEER GEAUVREAU    TAKING
MEASUREMENTS TODAY.
|te on G. T.  P.  Park Reserve   on
��� Second  avenue���Selected   by   the
��� Citizens  Meeting   Last   Winter���
���Building will be J 25 ft by 120 ft.
���Engineer Geauvreau with a staff
out early this morning planting
ikes and taking measurements on the
J T. P. reserve on Second avenue
Iposite  the  Provincial     government
|When questioned by the Optimist
', Geauvreau stated that he had been
Jnt out by the Department of Public
forks at Ottawa to secure certain inflation about those lots. The in-
^itio'n being to erect a public building
I them, The nature of the building
\ could not say as he had not been told.
[The property referred to is the site
letted by the citizens last year for the
|w post office and the  general belief
is that is the object of the engineer's
visit here at this time.
Mr. Geauvreau stated that the building would be 125 ft by 120 ft and that the
government had secured the site from
the Grand Trunk Pacific. The site is an
ideal one, both for public convenience
and for a general outlook.
Hon. Dr. Pugsley, Miinster of Public
works intimated to the Optimist last
winter that, from data he had in hand
he believed that the site at the corner
of Second avenue and Sixth street would
be the better site. This was also the
location recommended by the Board of
Trade. A citizen's meeting was held
later when it was decided to request
the minister to put the post office on the
grounds opposite the Provincial buildings on Second avenue.
The sits now being surveyed is on the
Grand Trunk Pacific Park reserve and in
time the surroundings will be one of the
most attractive spots in the city.
The citizens will openly rejoice when
they see the first sod for the new post
office turned, and they will patiently
await that eventful day.

J. B. Rittenhouse, one of the most
deeply interested men in Stewart and
the mining country at the back, arrived
in the city on the Prince Rupert bound
for Stewart. He has been in the south
for the past two or three weeks, but
when he gets back to the north he will
start construction work on the telephone system at once. He expects that
the poles will be on the grounds ready
and that nothing else will cause any
delay. Mr. Rittenhouse is installing
a hundred phone manual plant to start.
This of course can be added to as business warrants.
Mr. Rittenhouse is a mining engineer
and is deeply interested in the camp.
He has purchased several groups of
claims and he is prepared to purchase
another group this time if he is satisfied
that they are good. The last group he
got has been incorporated and is known
as the Portland Maple Leaf Mines
Limited. He is connected with the
Canada Mines Limited and several
other properties.
As a mining man speaking of the future
of the country he said it had the best
surface showings of any camp he had
been in. The geology is correct and
indicates continuity of depth of the veins
It differs from the Kootenay district
insofar that it is all solid and does not
show eruptions in past ages like Kootney
which is all broken up and necessitates
diamond drills for prospecting. The
country is sound and minerals are
found all over it and he believed that
it ran right through Alice Arm and on
to Kitsumkalum. There are no mines
there yet. There are a lot of splendid
prospects and it will be several months,
even next spring before it can really
be called a mining camp. The Portland
canal people have a mine. That is they
have a lot of ore blocked and ready to be
removed and shipped and they will
Btart shipping as soon  as the     con-
It is learned by wire from Van- J
couver  that  the   Stock   Market ��
was brisker   this morning  than ��
for several  days,  most   of   the j|
leading stocks advancing.     Port- ��
lands in particular were actively <��>
dealt in, the  price stiffening at J

stock touched bed rock at 30.  On J
both the local  exchanges,   Port- ��
lands were  in demand  at Van- ��
couver quotations. @
centrator is finished, which will be about
August 1st. There is no justification
from a mineral stand point for the
present prices of the stocks, and the
recent slump will do more good than
anything else as it will help to eliminate
the wild cats and the speculators with
good hard work during the summer, fall
and winter, next spring should show
something of the wealth we believe is
there.
PROSPECTORS LEAVE
Went   up the River to  Kitselas  and
Then to Alice Arm.
Dr. D. M. Innes and Albert Morrison,
brother of D. S. Morrison of this city
and an old prospector, leave on the
steamer Inlander to-morrow for Kitselas
with a fell consignment of supplies to
last them for two or three months. At
Kitsleas they will hit the trail for the
Alice Arm district, where they will prospect for the next couple of months or
longer. The Alice Arm district is very
promising and the many friends here of
the two prospectors will wish them every
success. The mineral is waiting in that
distiict lor the prospector and those
who have been up predict that it will
suprass the Portland Canal district.
REAL ESTATE HIGHER
Chas. M. Wilson Sold Two Lots that
Have Advanced $900 in 3 Months.
Chas. M. Wilson yesterday sold lots
27 and 28, block 11, section 5, on 6th
avenue next the Fulton street corner
for $3,800. The purchaser is a gentleman
from Idaho who next year will bring
his family here and locate. He says
Prince Rupert is very much talked of in
that state. These lots were sold by the
Alberta Realty Co just three months
ago for $2,900 and this substantial increase is in line with the rapid and continual increase in values of real estate
here.

ROYAL HOTEL WILL OPEN SOON
FIRST-CLASS   HOUSE  EQUIPPED
BY CORLEY AND BURGESS.
Forty-two Bed-rooms Furnished���Up-
to-Date Cafe on European Plan���
Steam Heating and all Modern
Conveniences.
About the first of next week the Royal
Hotel will be opened to the public at the
corner of Third avenue and Sixth street.
The proprietors and managers will be
S. A. Coiley and C. E. Burgess, who
have for the past two years very successfully conducted the Royal Lunch. The
Royal Hotel will occupy the entire
block except the corner store where
Director Cohen & Co have a lease, but
in a few months this store will be taken
over also and converted into the rotunda
and the bar for the hotel. At present
there will be no bar and the sitting rooms
will be upstairs   on the second    floor.
The Royal Hotel is being furnished
from cellar to garret in an up to date
manner. The best of everything is
being put in for the convenience and
comfort of the public and for the convenience of the help. The furniture up
stairs has been supplied by Geo. D.
Tite and includes first class iron beds,
felt mattresses, and the best of furniture.  All through rugs and   carpets are
found and the whole place carries an
air of home comfort, which is sure to
be popular with the public.
There are 42 bed rooms in all with
separate rooms on the fourth floor for
the help. Twenty-one bed rooms, a bath
and two toilets on each of the second
and third floors, and all the other little
things necessary are already provided.
The building is heated throughout with
steam and the furnace is running. Sewer
connections will be made with the
temporary sewer as soon as the pipe
arrived which is   expected this    week.
Down stairs a cafe, first-class in
every respect, is being fitted up. It will
be run on the European plan and will
never be closed, On one side is the-lunch
counter and on the other are tables,
with provision for private parties. The
dining room will seat 42 persons which
will give ample accommodation. The
kitchen at the rear is large and well
lighteh and well arranged so that no
delay will be caused in serving meals
and lunches.
The steam - heating system was installed by J. F. Mathieson.
The aim of Messrs. Corley and Burgess
is to have a first-class hotel with the
best possible service, and they will have
nothing else. Both gentlemen are
pioneers here and they have a splendid
record in the city and a very large circle
of friends. The public generally will
wish them all success in their new under
takings.
COUNCIL BUYS*
FIRST LUMBER
MILLION FEET TO BE SUPPLIED
BY WESTHOLME LUMBER CO.
Spruce and Fir to be Used in Construction of New Streets���Street
Committee Made Their Recommendation���Work will Start Soon
On the recommendation of the Streets
Works and Property committee the
council decided to award a contract
for a million feet of planking to the
Westholme Lumber Co. This lumber is
to be used in replanking old streets
and for building new ones. This begins
to look as though there would be some
thing doing in a short time.
A petition was received from residents
in the vicinity of Eleventh street asking
for a 24 foot plank road to be constructed
under the local improvement by law.
On motion the petition was referred to
the streets, Works and Property com;
mittees.
A report was received from the Light
and Telephone committee recommending
that Jas. Milne's account of $1,169 for
services in connection with the electric
light system, be paid out of the funds
appropriated by the government and
that Mr. Milne's services be dispensed
with.
Bought the Lumber
The streets committee recommended
that the tender of the Westholme
Lumber Company be accepted as it is
much the lowest and the advantages
of storage and wharfage etc offered by
the tenderers is of special benefit to the
city. The total cost of the lumber will
be $15,000.
The above lumber will be used in
planking new roads and replanking
old roads and the streets committee will
begin to use it about the first of August.
The  recommendation   was   adopted.
PRINCE RUPERT
IS A WONDER
BEGINS  TO SHOW HIGH  SPEED
SHE IS CAPABLE OF
Arrives H re Two Hours and a Half
Before Schedule Time, Although
Delayed Thirty Minutes Starting
From Vancouver.
To everyone's great surprise the
approaching whistle of the Prince Rupert
awoke the echoes this morning two hours
an a half in advance of schedule time.
This notwithstanding the fact that she
was delayed half an hour in starting
from Vancouver, which would make her
three hours the gainer on the run up
She carried about two hundred passengers
jnoHt of them for Prince Rupert and an
ordinary cargo of freight. The freight
for Prince Rupert is to be landed here
this time, the strong representations as
to the previous conduct of the steamer
in this regard having apparently had
the desired effect. She will leave here at
eight o'clock this evening. Mr. Dickie.
president of the Portland Canal company, is among the passengers for Stewart
and Captain John Irving is going from
here to look after the development of
his properties on the canal.
Fire Chief Neil Mclnnes has assumed
his new duties at the fire hall although
he admits that they are not very heavy
at present. He is getting things shaped
up a little and will move into his room
tonight. He is looking for a new hall
and a lot of additional fire fighting
apparatus. These things are necessary
before any material change can be made.
The university of Toronto, recognizing
the development of mining in Canada
and the necessity for better training for
young foreigners, has added to the university staff a professor of mining by the
appointment of H. E. T. Haultain. THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

NATIVE SILVER
AT HAZELTON
BOUND TO  BE A BIG CAMP AT
HEAD  OF  SKEENA
Galena That Will Pay Hundred
Dollars to Ton���Stampede to the
Rich Ground���Mr. Kinman Takes
Samples   of   Ore   to   Vancouver.
A mining camp, the richness of
whose ore bodies promise it a future
second to none so far discovered and
developed in British Columbia, is in
the making in the vicinity of Hazelton, at the head of navigation on the
Skeena river, says the Vancouver Province. For a year or so ago the presence
of the ore bodies in this district has been
known, but-not till within the past few
weeks has there been any understanding
of the richness of the mineral contents of
the vein matter.
Showings of native silver, which in
extent and value rival the richness
of the famous Silver Islet ores of bygone days, when the Lake Superior
property was being worked, have been
discovered. For months it was thought
that the whitish mineral which spread
through the vein matter in every direction was nothing but deposits of sulphate
of antimony, but assays made in Vancouver have determined it to be native
silver, giving to the ore values running
all the way from $145 to $185 per ton.
The ore shows but traces of gold and
traces of copper.
The properties carrying these veins
of native silver are situated on Four-
mile Mountain, the name designating
the distance of the mountain from
Hazelton. An examination of some of
the claims on Four-mile Mountain
was made within the past month by
Mr. E. L. Kinman of Vancouver. His
experience in the rich silver lead dis
tricts of the Kootenay led him to believe that what the prospectors pointed out to him as mere sulphate of antimony, was nothing less than native
silver spread thinly in sheet form
throughout the vein. Following ne
gotiations for two of the claims on
which development work had been
done, Mr. Kinman secured a price on
the properties subject to ten days'
time in which to have assajs made.
Depositing the first payment in Ha
zelton with instructions that it was to
be released following a telegram from
Vancouver that everything was satis
factory, Mr. K'nman went south with
his ore samples. His opinion of the
character of the ore wes confirmed
by the assays, which gave the values
stated, and the payments was released.
Mr. Kinman has one shift of men.
now at work on development, and
leave Vancouver next Monday for
Hazelton to start a second shift. The
ore is a refractory one, and before the
season of navigation on the Skeena River
closes suificitnt of it will have been ship
ped out to secure satisfactory smelter
tests. The properties on Four mile
Mountain are accessible fiom Hazelton
by �� good wagon road and a fa.rly good
transportation rate has been named from
Hazelton to Prince Rupert on the river
steamers. Mr. Kinman expects that after
making liberal allowance for the cost of
mining, teaming to Hazelton, water
transportation to a smelter, and reduction rates, the average return from the ore
will no! be less than $120 per ton.
This estimate is based on ore that will
carry average va'ue of $150 per ton,
and in his opinion this is a conserav-
tive figure at which to place the worth
of the contents of the general run of the
vein.
The formation of the country at
Four-mile Mountain is snndstone with
intrusive dykes of granite. Classification of the vein matter which caries the high silver values is a puzzle
which geologists and expert miners
have been unable to solve offhand.
Apparently the \ein fissures received
their mineralization .when the upheaval
which intioduced the granite occurred.
Recently there was a stampede to
Four-mile Mountain with the result
that numerous claims have been staked
on what is supposed to be an extension
of the rich vein, but sufficient development has not been done on any of these
later stakings to determine their value
as anything more than good prospects.
At Nine-mile Mountain considerable
development has been carried on at
the Silver Cup, a property carrying a
richly mineralized silver - lead vein.
Nine-mile Mountain is attracting a
great deal of attention, in fact the entire country within a radius of a score
of miles of Hazelton is now being combed
by prospectors, and there is every
probability that before the end of the
present summer the Hazelton district
will he the scene of a mining rush similar
to that which has brought Portland
Cana. so prominently before the world
in the last six months.

THE MAN AT THE FRONT.
Everyone living in Prince Rupert has seen a phase of a great town and a great
railway in the making. They have seen the engineer breaking a trail through" virgin
forest and running a line across discouraging hills and sloughs. They have seen the
clearing gang, the rock gang and the grading gang successively follow in their wake
and miles of level roadbed open out from their labor, until the gigantic undertaking
and its millions of cost appear commonplace and almost unworthy of comment.
But a new and less monotonous phase of railway construction is here���and now
rapidly departing. It is the track-laying gang, undoubtedly the most interesting
and inspiring work of the whole construction. To the track-layer the difficulties of
barriers and fords have departed. He has his path cut for him and his duty is to
rush to the goal. Every day he sees new scenes. Every other day his camp changes.
Each hour_of labor is a hustle with brain and hand, and a hundred or two fellow
workmen hustling beside him. Enthusiasm is in the atmosphere. To him comes the
pleasure of all the varied experiences of a pioneer traveller on a new highway of
future generations. He lays the track, walks the ties, bumps along on flat cars,
rides the engine and possibly the first parlor car over the line. Each hour a new
panorama of nature's art unfolds itself to his eye. He gazes over reaches of land and
water that will be gems for future artists and writers. He sees the colors, the perspective and the details of Nature before she has withdrawn them from approaching
civilization. His train is the first to rival the roar of the salt water surf. He hears a
hundred hills startled into echoes from the first locomotive whistle. He races up the
shore line of great rivers as their first rival in the business of transportation. He
opens the way to the vastness, the mysterious and the, riches of the interior. There
is no room for monotony or discontent. It is a work and a life that makes men
strong physically, mentally and morally.

SPEEDY WORK
TRACK-LAYING
ZANARDI   BRIDGE    IS    NEARLY
READY  FOR THE STEEL.
Two Miles and a Quarter Laid in
Six and a Half Hours���Road Will
Probably Handle Traffic Before the
Close of This Year.
Two and a quarter miles in six hours
and a half is the record Dan Dempsey
made with his track-laying gang on
Monday, and railroad men say that is
going some for this mountain section.
Dan Dempsey is the head foreman at
the end of steel on the Grand Trunk
Pacific. He is in charge of "the Pioneer,"
known to the uninitiated as a track-
laying machine. In fact Dan is one of
the inventors of the machine. It is a
wonderful piece of mechanism���not much
to look at, but a whale to work. It will
keep 50 or 60 men busy in front and as
many more behind spiking down the
rails. The machine is a hustler and it
makes the man hustle, too. That is a
good point about it, but that same hustle
has been the cause of some delay because
the gang of men at work on the machine
when 'it first started out were clumsy
and fell over themselves. An experienced
gang had to be brought in and now the
work goes along merrily.
The track-laying train is made up of
an engine with two flat cars of rails
ahead and the track-laying machine
ahead of them. Behind the engine are
cars of ties, and work and general supply
cars. On each side of the train are box
tramways hung just below the edge of
the floor of the flat cars. The tramway
on the left side runs from the front of
the Pioneer to the end of the flat cars
carrying rails. The trams are operated
by steam from the engine. They are
simply rollers which carry the rails up
to the front of the pioneer. As the end
of the rail shoots out two men clamp on
angle-irons. The rail is suspended from
either of the two cranes���one for each
side���and lowered into place. Temporary steel rods hold the rails in position until the train has passed, when
the spiking gang arrives. On the right
side of the train the trough-like tram
runs back to the cars with the ties.

These ties are fed in and are pushed
along .with rollers having teeth. They
shoot out of the tram some distance
ahead of the pioneer. A man grabs
each tie as it comes out and drops it in
place. When one considers that frequently half a mile of track is laid an
hour and that there are 3200 ties to the
mile, it means stepping lively.
At the present time the track is out
as far as the trestle over Bone-yard
creek, about 22 miles from PrinceRupert.
The work is considerably delayed by
lack of material. Until the completion
of the Zanardi Rapids bridge all the
material has to be taken from the Rupert
yards on a scow ferry to a slip this side
of Inverness. On account of the tides
only one load of material can be put on
and unloaded each day.
Zanardi bridge has given a great deal
of trouble but the concrete peers will be
finished this week ready for the steel
work. The span between the shore
abutments is 100 feet. There are three
piers built to withstand the torrent of
water which pours through with the
rise and fall of the tides. Mr. Young,
of the Canada Bridge Co., has charge of
the superstructure and he has his
material on the ground ready to start
as soon as the concrete'is finished. His
camp is now about completed and by the
end of August the big bridge should be
ready for trains.
In the meantime the track-laying
will proceed as far as material can be
taken to the front. No ballasting will
be done until the track reaches the
gravel pit. 90 miles up the line. This will
be some weeks yet, but an effort will be
made to have the first hundred miles
ballasted before the frost of next winter.
For a new road the bed is in excellent
shape and with "80 lb rails heavy trains
can be taken over it at a good speed
without danger. Therejare very few
soft spots and these are mostly near
the mouth of the Skeena. ffcgj
The scenery along the route is magnificent. After leaving the harbor view
the road slips around the end of
Kaien Island, where for half a mile it
loses sight of the water, to come out on
picturesque Porpoise harbor with its
pretty islands winding'|jchannels, and
swift running waters. fJ^This type of
scenery continues as far as Inverness
where the grade turns on to the north
branch of the Skeena. Then for many
miles it winds under the towering
cl'ffs of granite and along the broad
and beautiful river. At this season of the
year the Skeena is alive with hundreds of
small craft belonging to the canneries
but the scene from the train is more like
a bit of the St Lawrence or the Hudson
on a midsummer holiday.
A trip out to the end of steel is a
holiday and education combined. One
has to see the massive cuts, the deep fills
and the numerous difficulties overcome
to realize what a gigantic undertaking
it is to hew out a grade for a transcontinental railroad. Future, travellers
will glory in the scenery and the luxury
of the drawing room cars but few
will think of the tireless energy, the
thousands of days' labor and the millions
of money it has cost to rush passengers
along at the rate of 60 miles an hour.
W. C. C. Mehan, the general superintendent, who organized the construction
work and who is personally in touch
with every part of the G. T. P. work
here is making an effort to get the first
section of the road ready to handle
traffic this year. If things can be accomplished it will materially help the
Prince Rupert business man.

WHO
CAN THIS BE?
Portland Canal Miner Says  Stewart
Has Been Slightly Bitten.
'Stewart has been bitten. Not badly
it is true, but just enough to make
\m aware that the age of Get- Rich-
Ouick Wallingford of mirthful mem-
;ory is still extant. This time the re-
���doubtable Rufus appeared in   the per-
of one Powerful Joe,   formerly of
R'aldez and Fairbanks,   and more re-
sently hailing from the   Capital City,
a pleasing personality,    fund of
ncedote and  a   presence   befitting  a
of near substance, he put it all
iver Rufus in the way he got-to the
long green. .
"We have heretofore refrained from
jentioning the matter, but as those
���ho have been stung (from representa-
ives of the Government down to the man
works with the pick and shovel),
m blessed with a short memory and
erst-while  bloated   capitalist   has
iot made good with   sundry cheques,
ransfers of realty and a company promo-
ion, it's time action was taken. To play
mining camp for a   bunch of suckers
one thing; but to monkey   with the
:ajesty of the law in  another.  Powerful
loe has either got to make good or suffer
he consequences.
Meanwhile  we   hope   that   innocent
ictorian investors will take   warning
md pass up anyone resembling  J. Rufus
|Wallingford   who   introduces    Stewart
eal estate or Portland  Canal   mining
Istocks for their serious   consideration."
unanimously endorsed Ed. S. Orr as
the party's candidate, and Orr is a
strong man. He was mayor of Tacoma
before going north with the early
pioneers, and since then has been the
leading freighter of Dawson, Fairbanks
and Valdez.
Watched Seal Fight.
The boys at Porpoise Harbour camp
last Sunday witnessed a contest that was
fiercer than the fight between Jeffries
and Johnson. It was a fight between
two full grown seals. They were at it
for hours and fought to the death. The
Tge water about there was read with
blood and at times the seal jumped
many feet out of thej water in their
attacks. The contest attracted all the
boys at the camp.

Furnished Rooms May Be
Rented Profitably.
Just to have "furnished rooms
to rent" is no great feat���or novelty. The number of people whose
homes are in furnished rooms���
"homes within homes"���is very
large.
' And among the people who live
in "one room homes" are an increasing number who like to have
things a little better THAN USUAL.
They like to have a pleasant
room, and they like to have it
fitted up DISTINCTIVELY, with
taste.
They will cheerfully, eagerly,
pay for SOMETHING BETTER
in the way of a furnished room.
Fix yours up to please the particular tenants, and ADVERTISE
ACCORDINGLY, and you'll get
back your investment with profit
in a very brief time.

Two Very Smart Men.
If it is correct, as a despatch says,
that Mr. Dunsmuir is investing a part
of the price of his coal properties in
the bonds of the Canadian Northern
Railway Company, the incident affords an interesting object lesson in
finance. Mr. Dunsmuir had coal mines;
Mr. Mackenzie is at the head of a company that is going to build railways in
the province and notably in this con
nection one on Vancouver Island. Mr.
Mackenzie thinks he will buy Mr.
Dunsmuir's coal mines. He goes to
England and gets the money, comes out
and pays it to Mr. Dunsmuir. Then Mr.
Dunsmuir pays part of it back to Mr.
Mackenzie's company and takes its
bonds as security, goes to England and
gets the money, and builds a railway on
Vancouver   Island.���Victoria Colonist.

WATER WORKS SYSTEM.
Taken Over by the City To.day and
Rates will be Collected Hereafter.
The council will today take over the
water works system and start collecting
rates from this date. The schedule of
rates was to have been presented to
the council last' by the engineer along
with a report, but they were not received
The report will be in hand  tonight.
The Fire, Water and Light committee
reported as follows, recommending the
purchase of 40 stand pipe covers and
20 stand pipes as per report of Engineer
Agnew submitted herewith.
We further recommend that the present water supply to be taken over, and
all accounts for maintenance, etc. be
paid and all rates collected by the city on
and after July 6th.
F. B. MOBLEY, Chairman.
In speaking to the report Aid. Mobley
favored taking over the water system
at once, even this morning and that
arrangements be made for the collecting
of the rates at once. As for the caps for
the standpipes he said that children
were beginning to put stones, pealings
rags and other things down the stand-
pipes and these will cause a lot of trouble
sooner or later. The caps will prevent it.
The report was adopted and the com
mittee was authorized to carry out the
recommendations   contained   therein.
MRS. TEMPLE'S TELEGRAM
Brandon's Players will Present this
Funny Production Tonight.
Any playgoers desiring to laugh to
their hearts content should see "Mrs.
Temple's Telegram" at the Empress
threatre tonight. This delightful comedy
had a run in New York for more than a
year and was probably the most successful farce comedy ever given a metropolitan run. The play is most inique
A young married man during a day at
Coney Island takes a ride in the Ferris
wheel. In the same car with him is
the wife of his friend. Something goes
wrong with the machinery which leaves
them suspended in mid air and they are
compelled to remain there all night.
The young man goes home tells his wife
a perfectly straight story but it sounds
so improbable she does not believe him
and he invents another story to clear
himself saying he stopped with his
friend a Mr. Brown and giving what he
supposed to be a ficticious address.
He gets his friend to impersonate Mr.
Brown and the amusing situations that
arise keep the audience in constant roars
of laughter.
Tomorrow night "Cousin Kate" will
be the offering and on Friday night,
"The Thief" with an Amatuer contest
after the performance.
PERSONAL
Mrs. Miller leaves on the Prince
Rupert tonight for Stewart, where she
will join her husband and make her
future home.
R. Cunningham of Port Essington
is in town today. He says the Fourth of
July fight at Reno was a sore disappointment to the sports there who
received special bulletins. Mr. C
also brings the good news that the sock-
eye fjlshing on the Skeena is good and
the big run has opened early.
You are Liable
To be accidentally killed, crippled, blinded, disabled or taken
ill at any time, and the value of
your time (which is money to
you) may be destroyed in a
moment.
No reasonable man goes without protection against loss from
the destruction of his property.
Did it ever occur to you that
your time has as distinct a value
as your property, or that your
life may be the property of your
family?
This protection is a duty you
owe yourself and those who may
be dependent upon you.
How dare you ignore this danger and go without adequate protection for yourself or family,
against Loss of Time, Total Disablement or Death?
