Big Steamer Making This End of
Run Gives Plenty of Time To
Handle Freight Properly and Discharge It Without Delay.
The Prince Albert did not get in from
Stewart until nine o'clock last night and
tke Prince George had to wait for her.
Making this the terminus for the big
steamers gives plenty of time for landing
all the freight without hurry, while
when on the run to Stewart, in order to
maintain the fast schedule they had
often to leave here before finishing unloading, a delay that the merchants
justifiably made a kick about.
The Prince Albert transferred her
passengers and mail to the Prince George
and sailed for Masset at midnight. The
Prince George got away for the south
at 9:45 with the following passengers:

RESCUED   FROM   DEATH
Man Dragged From Burning Cabin
On Grand Trunk Reserve
There was.a cry for help about hald
past eleven last night from a cabin on
the Grand Trunk Reserve near the Washington hotel. William Montgomery
heard the cry and hastily putting on
his clothes went out to investigate. He
found the cabin where the cries came from
was on fire and the door locked. He
burst in the door and dragged out the
occupant, who was overcome by smoke
and so badly burned that he was sent
to the hospital. Mr. Montgomery arrived only just in time to same the man's
life. The cabin and all it contained was
destroyed, the man only having his
shirt left.
Big Cargo of Lumber
The Henriette arrived from the Queen
Charlotte Islands this morning with a
full cargo of lumber.
BIG STRIKE
IN COTTON TRADE
BOTH OPERATIVES AND OPERATORS ARE STUBBORN
Hundred and Fifty Thousand Factory Hands Involved and Probably
A General Strike All Over England
Will Be Declared.
(Special to the Optimist)
Manchester, Eng., .Sept. 20.���The
operatives of the cotton mills of Lancashire have decided to accept the defi
of the masters' association and no steps
will be taken toward settling the dispute.
If the mills shut down the men will try
to bring about a general strike throughout England and, judging by the attitude
of other unions, they are likely to succeed. The operatives involved number
one hundred and fifty thousand.
The operators say they were never so
Strong as at present and if there is to
a struggle it had better come now when
they are able to meet it. Under these
circumstances, both men and employees
being stubborn, the strike is likely to be
of some duration and affect every other
industry in the country.
A   FIRST   RATE  PICTURE  SHOW
One  Which   You'll "Enjoy  and   Remember
A picture show of exceptionally high
order was on the bill for last night at
the Phenix theatre. There can be no
doubt regarding the excellence of Mr.
Heiney's claim that the Phenix show is
"flickerless." Every film gives scenes
real as life, clear and vivid as if actually
happening before your eyes. You can
almost hear the people in the pictures
speak.
A superb picture story is "The Curse
of Gambling" shown last night. This
is a film none should fail to see. The
second last scene is perhaps the finest
and most heart touching piece of real
life drame ever produced, by picture
film. This splendid picture story will
be shown again tonight, and the accompanying programme of bright, fresh
live, pictures of three other subjects is
something to be seen and remembered.
Mr. J. W. Paterson is erecting a
handsome eight-room residence, at a
cost of about $2,500 which will be ready
for occupancy in about ten day3.
Mrs. Burgess is here just out from
Iowa, to spend the winter with her
daughter, Mrs. W. H. Morrison.

At the Police Court this morning

avenue. L. Patmore appeared for the
defence. Chief McCarvell gave evidence
that he had seen the transaction and the
handing over of money for the liquor.
The case was adjourned untill Thursday
when McLeeny will face another charge
for what Mr. Patmore calls "a vicarious
offence."
Silver   Cup   Stock   Selling
Being practically a Prince Rupert
venture the offering of Silver Cup stock
met with a ready response. One large
block of ten thousand shares was sold
yesterday and a number of smaller lots.
There appears to be quite a brisk enquiry for Silver Cup.

(Special to the Optimist)
Seattle, Sept. 19.���Wireless calls for

Puebla is ashore off Fraser river. She
was on her was from Vancouver to aSeat-
tle and had no passengers aboard. The
report states she has eighteen feet of

Pacific Coast Steamship company.
Disaster   in   Balloon   Race
Indianapolis, Sept. 20.���(Special)���
Reports that a balloon carrying a dark
object but no car are being received
from Pennsylvania. This has led the
racing committee to think that a disaster has occurred to one of the balloons
that are still unaccounted for.
Heir   to   Large   Fortune
Seattle, Sepg. 20���(Special)���Olaf
Holsten, son of the Countee Holsten,
who has been sought after for months,
has been discovered here and will probably leave for Denmark soon, to claim
the large fortune alleged to have been
left to him.
AFTER MISSING LINER
No Trace of the Sixteen Men From
Wrecked Steamer Carnarvon
(Special to the Optimist)
Sydney, Sept. 20.���The tug which
was dispatched yesterday is search of
the other boats of the liner Carnarvon,
returned this morning and reported
that no trace could be found of them.
There were sixteen men in two boats
and it is now believed that all of them
were lost.
The Big Canyon Hotel is being eouip-
ped throughout with water and hose
with a view to good protection in event
of fire, the water being obtained from a
splendid spring and reservoir on the hill
just back of the town, which furnishes
sufficient pressure to throw the water
about 50 feet higher than the hotel
building.
Miss Grove of Kitsumkalum spent
several days visiting Mrs. W. H. Morrison
this week. She returned horn on Monday.
INQUEST ON REMAINS RESUMED
YESTERDAY MORNING
Neighbor Testifies Le Neve Told Her
She Was Only Waiting For Mrs.
Crippen to Die to Become the Wife
Of Dr. Crippen.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sept. 19.���The inquest into
the remains found in the cellar of the
Crippen house was resumed this morning,
Inspector Dew being the first witness
called. He practically repeated his testimony given at the Bow Street police
court in the trial.
Mrs. Eugene Stratton testified that
Mrs. Crippen had undergone an operation which produced a scar similar to
the one found on the body.
A neighbor of Mrs. Crippen, Mrs.
Jackson, declared that Miss Le Neve
told her she was only waiting for the
death of Mrs. Crippen to marry the
doctor. On several of her visits Mrs.
Jackson had found Mrs. Crippen in
tears and she was undoubtedly unhappy
in her married life. Just before her
disappearance Mrs. Crippen grew more
and more disconsolate.
LIGHTING      PLANT     EXPECTED
New   Generator   and   Engine   to  Be
Here  in October
The city engineer reported last night
to the council that the 100 kilowatt
generator and non condensing engine
ordered from Toronto on the 15th Sept.,
for the city lighting plant would be here
during the first week in October. The 100
kilowatt generator would only light the
streets. Private consumers must await
the decision regarding the installation
of two 160 kilowatt generators estimates
of which with engines were being obtained.
The city engineer recommended that
a local machinist be employed to test
the B. C. boilers and that tenders be
be asked for the installation of the engine and generator, the construction of
power house, and erection of the pole
line. It will be necessary to fit the B. C.
boilers with coal grates after the test.
SEVERAL   DELEGATES   COMING
TO PRINCE RUPERT
Nearly Three Hundred Members of
Canadian Manufacturers Association at Vancouver.���Lieutenant
Governor    To    Give  Welcome.
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Sept. 20.���Although by
arriving here twenty minutes ahead of
schedule time the delegates to the convention of the Canadian Manufacturers' association missed any official
reception matters were soon adjusted
and by ten o'clock the association had
got down to business in Dominion hall.
There were nearly three hundred of
these delegates, all captains of industry
with wide reputation.-, and nearly all of
them had some good things to say of the
West and its rapid growth.
This afternoon will be spent in auto
drives around the city while the ladies
of the party will be entertained by
Mrs. John Hendry, wife of the president
of the association. Tonight a reception
will be given in Dominion hall, when the
lieutenant-governor will be present to
officially welcome the visitors.
President A. J. Morris, of the Prince
Rupert Board of Trade, has received a
reply from President Hendry to the
invitation the board wired for the delegates to visit this city. In his telegram
Mr. Hendry fears the itinerary will not
permit of the association accepting the
invitation but he has no doubt several
delegates will be pleased to do so.
HARD HIT EVIDENTLY
Sidney   Mallett's   Beauty   Rather
Marred
In the Police Court room this morning
sat Sidney Mallett with about a square
acre of sticking plaster on his brow and
a lovely black eye, while E. Ludwig was
arraigned before Magistrate Carss to
explain why he hit Mallett with a bottle.
Ludwig who elected to be tried summarily instead of going up to Vancouver,
told his story; and afterwards Mallett
told his version. Both men were extremely reticent. You see there was a
woman in the case���not a single lady
either, though Mallett said he wasn't
aware of this. Magistrate Carss suspended sentence, Ludwig being released
until called upon.
FRIENDS IN FOLLY
Memories and Moneys Badly Mixed
Before Magistrate
Time    Extended
Tenders for the construction of the
hotel on the corner of First avenue and
McBride street has been extended to
Saturday Sept. 24.
Great doings last night along First
avenue! James Young and John Nelson
"drunk and raising Cain." Nelson told
Magistrate Carss this morning that he
didn't know how he came to the cells
at all. He was very certain regarding
his money, however, some of which he
declared was missing. Young and
Nelson, it seems, had been locked up
together both "dead to this sinful
world," and in the morning dollar bills
of all denominations had apparently
sprouted mysteriously from Young's
shirt. He didn't know how they had
come there. The men were pals, anyway, and understood each other about
it. Magistrate Carss shook his head.
"It's a drunken business," he said, and
fined the men five dollars each' and
frills, or ten days. Nelson paid up and
left.   Young had no money and stayed. THE   PRINCE   RUPER1    OPTIMIST

Woman to be Canonized
Montreal aSept. 16.���Cardinal Vannutelli presided yesterday at the disinterment of the body of Mother Marguerite Bourgeois, founder of the Order of the Congregation of Notre Dame,
who will be canonized today.
Of all the men actually playing baseball, and eliminating Connie Mack, manager of the Athetotics, who owns stock
in the club, Frank Chance, manager of
the Cubs, is considered to be far and
away above all other active players in
his earnings from baseball. This, too,
is because Chance also is a stockholder
in the Chicago Cubs, owning one-tenth
interest.
Prior to. the season of 1908, Chance
received a salary of $5,500 a year, which
was augmented by his dividends and
the share of one player in post-season
and exhibition game receipts. Chance
had signed a four-year contract at $7,-
500 a year, but a dispute arose between
him and Charlie Murphy, president of
the club, and he announced that he
would not play with the Cubs.
Makes Secret Arrangement
A Chicago man was sent to California to arrange a truce between Chance
and Murphy. One of the conditions of
the truce was that no party to it should
ever reveal the salary of the deal,
whether raised or continued the same.
���But, with his dividends on his one-tenth
interest, Chance earns between $20,000
and $30,000 a year, probably $25,000 a
year on an average.

She Was Only Waiting For Mrs.
Crippen to Die to Become the Wife
Of Dr. Crippen.
A   FIRST   RATE   PICTURE   SHOW
One  Which   You'll Enjoy  and   Remember
A picture show of exceptionally high
order was on the bill for last night at
the Phenix theatre. There can be no
doubt regarding the excellence of Mr.
Heiney's claim that the Phenix show is
"flickerless." Every film gives scenes
real as life, clear and vivid as if actually
happening before your eyes. You can
almost hear the people in the pictures
speak.
A superb picture story is "The Curse
of Gambling" shown last night. This
is a film none should fail to see. The
second last scene is perhaps the finest
and most heart touching piece of real
life drame ever produced, by picture
film. This splendid picture story will
be shown again tonight, and the accompanying programme of bright, fresh
live, pictures of three other subjects is
something to be seen and' remembered.
Mr. J. W. Paterson is erecting a
handsome eight-room residence, at a
cost of about $2,500 which will be ready
for occupancy in about ten days.
Mrs. Burgess is here just out from
Iowa, to spend the winter with her
daughter, Mrs. W. H. Morrison.
Heir   to   Large   Fortune
Seattle, Sepg. 20.���(Special)���Olaf
Holsten, son of the Countee Holsten,
who has been sought after for months,
has been discovered here and will probably leave for Denmark soon, to claim
the large fortune alleged to have been
left to him.
AFTER MISSING LINER
No Trace of the Sixteen Men From
Wrecked Steamer Carnarvon
(Special to the Optimist)
Sydney, Sept. 20.���The tug which
was dispatched yesterday is search of
the other boats of the liner Carnarvon,
returned this morning and reported
that no trace could be found of them.
There were sixteen men in two boats
and it is now believed that all of them
were loet.
The Big Canyon Hotel is being equipped throughout with water and hose
with a view to good protection in event
of fire, the water being obtained from a
splendid spring and reservoir on the hill
just back of the town, which furnishes
sufficient pressure to throw the water
about 50 feet higher than the hotel
building.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sept. 19.���The inquest into
the remains found in the cellar of the
Crippen house was resumed this morning,
Inspector Dew being the first witness
called. He practically repeated his testimony given at the Bow Street police
court in the trial.
Mrs. Eugene Stratton testified that
Mrs. Crippen had undergone an operation which produced a scar similar to
the one found on the body.
A neighbor of Mrs. Crippen, Mrs.
Jackson, declared that Miss Le Neve
told her she was only waiting for the
death of Mrs. Crippen to marry the
doctor. On several of her visits Mrs.
Jackson had found Mrs. Crippen in
tears and she was undoubtedly unhappy
in her married life. Just before her
disappearance Mrs. Crippen grew more
and more disconsolate.
MANUFACTURERS
IN CONVENTION
SEVERAL   DELEGATES   COMING
TO PRINCE RUPERT
Nearly Three Hundred Members of
Canadian Manufacturers Association at Vancouver.���Lieutenant
Governor    To    Give  Welcome.
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Sept. 20.���Although by
arriving here twenty minutes ahead of
schedule time the delegates to the convention of the Canadian Manufacturers' association missed any official
reception matters were soon adjusted
and by ten o'clock the association had
got down to business in Dominion hall.
There were nearly three hundred of
these delegates, all captains of industry
with wide reputation.-, and nearly all of
them had some good things to say of the
West and its rapid growth.
This afternoon will be spent in auto
drives around the city while the ladies
of the party will be entertained by
Mrs. John Hendry, wife of the president
of the association. Tonight a reception
will be given in Dominion hall, when the
lieutenant-governor will be present to
officially welcome the visitors.
President A. J. Morris, of the Prince
Rupert Board of Trade, has received a
reply from President Hendry to the
invitation the board wired for the delegates to visit this city. In his telegram
Mr. Hendry fears the itinerary will not
permit of the association accepting the
invitation but he has no doubt several
delegates will be pleased to do so.
LIGHTING      PLANT      EXPECTED
New   Generator  and   Engine   to   Be
Here in October
HARD HIT EVIDENTLY
Sidney   Mallett's   Beauty   Rather
Marred
The city engineer reported last night
to the council that the 100 kilowatt
generator and non condensing engine
ordered from Toronto on the 15th aSept.,
for the city lighting plant would be here
during the first week in October. The 100
kilowatt generator would only light the
streets. Private consumers must await
the decision regarding the installation
of two 150 kilowatt generators estimates
of which with engines were being obtained.
The city engineer recommended that
a local machinist be employed to test
the B. C. boilers and that tenders be
be asked for the installation of the engine and generator, the construction of
power house, and erection of the pole
line. It will be necessary to fit the B. C.
boilers with coal grates after the test.
Miss Grove of Kitsumkalum spent
several days visiting Mrs. W. H. Morrison
this week. She returned horn on Monday.
Time   Extended
Tenders for the construction of the
hotel on the corner of First avenue and
McBride street has been extended to
Saturday Sept. 24.
In the Police Court room this morning
sat Sidney Mallett with about a square
acre of sticking plaster on his brow and
a lovely black eye, while E. Ludwig was
arraigned before Magistrate Carss to
explain why he hit Mallett with a bottle.
Ludwig who elected to be tried summarily instead of going up to Vancouver,
told his story; and afterwards Mallett
told his version. Both men were extremely reticent. You see there was a
woman in the case���not a single lady
either, though Mallett said he wasn't
aware of this. Magistrate Carss suspended sentence, Ludwig being released
until called upon.
FRIENDS IN FOLLY
Memories and Moneys Badly Mixed
Before Magistrate
Great doings last night along First
avenue! James Young and John Nelson
"drunk and raising Cain." Nelson told
Magistrate Carss this morning that he
didn't know how he came to the cells
at all. He was very certain regarding
his money, however, some of which he
declared was missing. Young and
Nelson, it seems, had been locked up
together both "dead to this sinful
world," and in the morning dollar bills
of all denominations had apparently
sprouted mysteriously from Young's
shirt. He didn't know how they had
come there. The men were pals, anyway, and understood each other about
it. Magistrate Carss shook his head.
"It's**> a drunken business," he said, and
fined the men five dollars each' and
frills, or ten days. Nelson paid up and
left.   Young had no money and stayed. THEFRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST
SILVER CUP MINES
UMITED
For many reasons we strongly adivise the purchase of SILVER CUP now at 12 1-2 cents per share First and foremost we believe the
stock will steadily advance in value.   Our opinion is based on sound estimates of what may reasonably be expected from a liberal develop-
ment of the SILVER CUP ore bodies We believe furthermore that there is great value in the property of the company far and above
the present selling price of the stock Call and talk the matter over with us.   You will have cause for regret if you do not secure all
of the stock at 12 1-2 cents that you can arrange to pay for.

THE   POLICE  COURT
The bums stood up, a disamal row,
before the solemn judge, and when they
told their tale of woe.he simply answered
"Pudge!" Poor victims of the world's
abuse, dyed in misfortune's vats! And
as each muttered his excuse, the jurist
murmured "Rats!" Perhaps the narratives were true told by these waifs
and strays; it matters not, for each
one drew ten dollars or ten days. I watched them shamble from the court as they
had shambled in; the youthful boy and
aged sport, the gent who smelled of gin.
"Poor flotsam on the human stream!"
I moralized aloud; "Each hobo had his
youthful dream���each bum in all that
crowd! Life's morning seemed serene
to him, and full of promise fair; and
then the light of hope grew dim, and storm
clouds filled the air. And whose the
fault if he has strayed from sunny
paths of peace, to wander in the darksome
shade, pursued by fat police? Was there
a voice, when first his feet from virtue
wandered wide, to cheer, encourage
or entreat, to counsel or to guide? We
put the broken bums in hock���'twere
better had we showed them paths wherein to walk before they wandered wide,
I pity them in all their woe, these homeless, friendless jays!" The jurist, dozing
murmured low; "Ten dollars or ten
days!" ���Walt Mason.

Prince Rupert, B.C. 7gtf
Paris, Sept. 17.���The Review of
Paris prints an interesting personal
study of George V. by Joseph Watson,
an English newspaper writer who accompanied the King, when, as Prince
of Wales, he made his colonial and
Indian tours, The writer gives a high
estimate of the new King's character
and ability and recounts many anecdotes to show that his broadminded
good sense and painstaking, careful
habits amount almost to genius.
In one of the colonies visited a sensational paper enlivened the Prince's
stay with a disgraceful campaign against
the dynasty, avoiding, for lack of
material, any direct attack on the Prince
himself, but revamping with great
elatoration all the ancient scandals
about the lives of the Georges.
The Prince said nothing, but when
the royal party was once again upon
the sea, he referred to the campaign,
asking Watson what he thought of it.
Watson, naturally somewhat embarrassed, replied that in his opinion no
self-respecting person paid the slightest attention to what the paper had
said
"But I have read everything," ob:
served the Prince," and have carefully
filed away the articles in my scrap-
book. The colonial ministers were
greatly worried and asked my permission to suppress the paper. I would
not hear of it. That would only have
given the beggars the advertisment
they sought."
Mr. Watson lays great stress on the
new King's ability as an orator of the
convincing type, saying his colonial
speeches made the deepest impression everywhere and his famous "Wake
Up England" speech, made upon his
return, literally eclipsed the oratory of
Salisbury, Roseberry and Chamberlain,
who spoke upon that occasion. Mr.
Watson attributes much of this success
to the clear enunciation of the King,
saying it was a positive revelation to
the colonials, accustomed to the drawling, affected, half swallowed words of
English orators. "Why" exclaimed a
Canadian," and they asked: "Why have
we been sending our sons and daughters
at great expense to England to acquire
the right accent when our future King
speaks with none of these affectations
which we have always imagined to be
the hallmark of good breeding."
"If King Edward," adds Mr. Watson, "was everywhere regarded as the
arbiter of style, King George has already become, for his success, the
arbiter of diction."

ELECTRICITY FOR CROPS
Increase in Yield Found As Result
of Several Experiments
London, Sept. 16.--How the yield of
corn, fruit and vegetables can be in-
I creased by the use of electricity was
pscribed by J. H. Priestly, lecturer
on botany at Bristol University, in an
address before the Royal Horticultural
Society in London.
"One of the first experiments,"  he
said, "was the electrification of twenty
acres of growing wheat.    The current
was conducted by wire from the generating station to the wheat field, and
there was raised to a very high voltage
j beiore distribution  over  the   field   on
I wires attached to poles ten feet high.
The current  escaping  from  the  wires
attached to the ground passed through
the plants and so completed the circuit.  The  increase   in   yield   in   one
case amounted  to  29   per   cent.     In
other experiments cucumber plants gave
an increased   yield   of   17   per   cent.,
I strawberry   plants   80   per   cent,   and
mangolds 18 per cent.
"The effect of electricity on plants
is to  accelerate   and   increase   their
growth,   and   in   some   way   improve
' their health   and   make   them   better
to resist disease, but the precise
action of the electrical current is not
yet fully understood."

AGAINST      RECIPROCITY
President    of    Manufacturer'*
sociation Gives His Views
As-
Vancouver, Sept. 16.���John Hendry,
president of the Manufacturers' Association, has just returned from a six
months' trip to Europe, where he has
studied the economical conditions of
England, Germany, France, Belguim
and Switzerland. This study of outside
conditions combined with his intimated
knowledge of the Canadian economic
position makes Mr. Hendry's opinion
on the question of reciprocity with the
United States of great interest.
The view that he has expressed on
this matter is that Canada is not yet
ready for reciprocity. At the present
moment Canadian manufacturers do
not know enough about the probable
results of any such arrangement while
the business men of the United States
have fully studied the question of conservation, and would know exactly
what they were doing jn framing any
agreement of this kind. The result might
be that Canada, who has made no deep
study of the conserving of her natural
I resources, might give away much that
; she can ill afford to lose. Such an ar-
i rangement must certainly come some
| time, but this is not quite the time.
When that time arrives, however, the
establishment of reciprocity with the
United States will not affect imperial
relations in any unpleasant way.

On Ninemile Mountain After Hour
Of Inspection Organized by J. A.
Riley.
Mr. J. A. Riley who represents the
Ninemile Mining Co., who are developing the mining properties on Ninemile
mountain near Hazelton has just returned to Prince Rupert from there.
With a number of gentlemen from
Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle, who
are interested in mining matters, he
has been over the company's property,
and the visitors are very well satisfied
indeed with the showings. Several large
transfers of mining property have already been made as a result of the visit.
C. L. Hanson the well known mine
owner whose interests in the Cobalt
district and Tonopah, as well as California Midway was enthusiastic over
the immediate future of the district and
took over three properties right away.
These are, The Dawson Fraction, purchased from "Jim" Latham for $15,000
a property which adjoins the Sunset
belonging to the Silver Cup; also the
Steve Slinger Group between the Silver
Cup and the Barber, for which he paid
$20,000; and two more claims between
the Sunrise and the Lead King purchased
from Mr. Skeltrom, consideration unknown; while Ralph Trimble, the well

That nobody, not even nature, loves

stated last night by Adolph Rothbarth,

banks for more than $100,000.
"All you need," he said, speaking
at his cell in the Tombs, "is a presentable address, respectable clothes, a
good, long head, and a statement of
assets. When I first went to a bank
for money I told them I might need
as much as $150,000. They told me
to go ahead and submit a statement
of assets and they would lend me all
I wanted. So I submitted a false
statement. Any one could have done
this."

NEW STEAMER LINE
The Optimist is informed, on good authority, that Richard Swazey, of Eureka,
Cal., president of the Humboldt Steamship company is now in Seattle in conference
with the representatives of the London Development company with a view to the
transfer of the steamer Humboldt to the latter company. These negotiations were
begun in San Francisco by M. Kalish, vice-president and general manager, and it is
believed the meeting now being held in Seattle is to formally transfer the property.
The London Development company is the owner of the Treadwell and other
mines on Douglas island and elsewhere in Alaska. Some years ago it purchased the
Tacoma smelter for the treatment of its concentrates, and has contracted with the
Pacific Steamship company to freight these concentrates and also to bring supplies
for its stores and machinery for its mines. It has an additional two hundred stamps
being installed which will make it the greatest stamp mill in the world.
For some time it has been felt that the company had sufficient business to keep
at least one large steamer going.but it is believed that the purchase of the Humboldt
means that vessel to be the nucleus of a regular steamship line in competition with
other Alaska steamship lines. It is said the opening of the copper mines at Whitehorse and their prospective large shipments of ore has had much to do with bringing
the company to a decision, and the order of Judge Mabee, of the Canadian Railway
Commission, that the White Pass railway should make a low rate on ore shipments
the culminating point.
The establishment of a new steamship line to Alaska means a good deal to this
port. No doubt the Development company has also had in view the early completion of our government dock, and as it has all the wealth of the Rothchilds behind it there is a probability of a new steamer line of three or more boats regularly
calling here. The Humboldt has always done a fair business with us, and with the
advent of a powerful independent steamship line and an independent wharf the
merchants of Prince Rupert may look for a material reduction of freight charges
with some confidence.

Every business man who employs labor knows that it is not profitable to employ inexperienced managers of departments or cheap help. Why should we do so
in the management of our civic business? The individual seems to be wiser than

of the board of trade?
The questions were unanswered immediately, the council unanimously
agreeing to go into committee as a whole
to discuss the matter. The mayor appealed to the reporters present to grant
the proceedings the courtesy of the press,
and use discretion in their reports.
He hoped the reporters would not divulge anything in the proceedings that
might prejudice negotiations against the
city's interests. A reporter reminded him
that the editors must be consulted re
garding reports, and the mayor agreed.
The reporters remained during the discussion which resulted in the carrying
of a motion by Aid. Pattullo seconded
by Aid. Smith, that the board of trade's
recommendations should be forwarded
to the president of the G. T. P. with the
request that he express his opinion regarding them.
The City Council is not as anxious for power as some person suspect,

G.T.P. ASSESSMENT
BEFORE COUNCIL
BOAR D OF TRADE'S PROPOSITION
CONSIDERED
Council in Committee Decide to
Submit the Proposition Without
Endorsation By the' City to President   Hays
The report containing the recommendations of the Board of Trade regarding
the G. T. P. assessment came up at last
council meeting and was read by the
city clerk.
Aid. Hilditch asked if anyone knew
whether that assessment of the Board of
Trade's as recommended was correct
according to rules. The mayor informed
him that this was so.
Aid. Lynch said that matters of this
nature should be referred to the people
according to the Municipal Act. These
recommendations by the board of trade
were endorsed by a number of citizens
not necessarily all. They had a clear
course to submit the matter to the people
but first they ought to have the other
party's opinion regarding it. He moved
that the recommendations be referred
to the G. T. P. and afterwards referred
to the people with the G. T. P. viewu
regarding them.
Aid. Mobley seconded the motion
Aid. Hilditch spoke at some length
saying that though the question was a
heavy one the council had tackled heavy
matters before. They were there to deal
with city matters heavy or light, but
not to act merely as a go between, between the board of trade and the G. T. P.
The destines of the city were in the hands
of the council not the hands of the board
of trade, and the council should not
shirk the responsibility. In view of the
fact that the city wanted a number of
things from the G. T. P., notably a
piece of waterfront, the council should
act as a council and let the citizens
know what they felt in the matter.
The people looked to the council more
than they did to the board of trade.
In submitting the proposition to the
G.T.P. it should have either the council's
assent or dissent, otherwise they were
merely acting as spokesmen for the board
of trade.
Aid. Pattullo here suggested that the
council should go into committee as a
whole to discuss the matter.
Aid. Barrow rose at this, saying
"While I think it advisable that the
citizens should know the feeling of the
council in this matter I don't think it
is necessary for us to think in public
regarding it. Certainly in their consideration of it the G. T. P. don't think
in public. Though I have heard of star
chamber methods involving thumb
screws and other instruments of torture,
still I feel that this is a case for private
consideration. If we could take all the
citizens into our confidence well and good,
but we have to take not only the citizens
of standing but all and sundry into our
confidence  of  we  discuss   in   public."
Aid. Lynch agreed with Aid. Barrow
in this, and thought it might be con-
sidred  by the finance committee.
Aid. Mobley said that if the recommendations were sent to the G. T. P.
they would in a measure necessitate the
G. T. P.'s proposing a proposition of
their own to the council; and Aid. Smith
suggested that the council go into committee as a whole to discuss the matter
before sending the recommendations
in to the G. T. P..
Aid. Mclntyre proposed that the council should go into committee with the
assessor aa it was a ticklish question,
then something definite could be arrived at.
Aid. Hilditch: "What I want to know
is, does the city council endorse these
proposals by the board of trade? Suppose the G. T. P. accept them, is the
city council to agree to them also or to
investigate them further? In short does
the city council tie itself to the proposals

G. C. Emmerson
New York, Sept. 17.���A storm has
been stirred up by the charge of Thos.
W. Lawson and Mrs. Helen French,
recently thrown overboard by F. Augustus Heinze, that Standard Oil has
a Titian-haired beauty on its secret
service staff. Reports filtering out of
the oil company's office at 26 Broadway represent John D. Archbold as
choking with wrath over the suggestion that the corporation employs a
cultured woman to entice business secrets from those whose scalp it covets.
In the vehement denials of the impeachment made during the week by
Archbold, who is John D.'s man Friday, and sits on the lid when the head
of the monopoly is discoursing before
his Sunday school class, there is apparent the same disposition to dismiss
as idle gossip the Lawson charge that
was shown by the trust two years ago
when Hearst exposed its relations with
certain public officials and newspaper
editors whom it had subsidzed.
As for the red-headed sorceress,
there is little doubt that she played
a vital part in the panic of 1907, and
that the role she essayed in winning
the confidence of Heinze and his associates was in the interest of Standard oil. But a few months before she
met Heinze he had beaten Henry H.
Rogers and others of the Standard Oil
group in important litigation affecting
the ownership of Canadian and American mineral claims worth hundreds
of millions. Determined to retrieve
its failure to secure control of these
mines, Rogers conceived the plan of
ascertaining the secrets of the group
through the medium of a woman, and
using the knowledge thus acquired to
precipitate a raid upon the favorite
stocks of Heinze with the hope of
breaking him. In this way he fancied
he could get the control of the properties he sought, which he had failed
to do with the aid of the courts.
Impenetrable as a stone wall to
men, Heinze was known to be peculiarly susceptible to the charms of womanhood. The Titian beauty, who is a woman
of great culture and personal magnetism, was thrown into his path one
night at the Waldorf-Astoria, and there
began an acquaintance, which friends
! of the copper man say, ended in the
| panic of three days ago. With great
deftness and skill, the woman, while
affecting to reciprocate the interest
shown in her by Heinze, is said to have
gotten out of him such business secrets
as enabled Rogers and his friends to
put on the squeeze where it pinched
most. Not until he found his stocks
pounded almost to nothing in the market
his loans in banks and trust companies
called and his credit everywhere shattered
did the Montana operator realize the
subtleties of Standard Oil and the full
extent of its resources in forcing a
breach in the breastworks of its enemies.. Every institution friendly to
Heinze suffered���most of them under
the pressure exerted against them went
to the wall.
Heinze is not the only one credited
with having fallen a prey to the be-
guilementa of the red-headed plenipotentiary of Standard Oil. There are
others who have good reason to remember her.

THAT LIGHT SITE
NOT CERTAIN YET
FOR HOW LONG WILL G. T. P. LET
CITY USE B. C. CO'S SITE?
Mr. Chamberlain To Be Approached
On the Question.���Not Probable
That City Will Be Allowed to
Lease Site.
For how long may the city occupy the
site of the B. C. Tie and Timber Co's
former mill, and use this site for the
Municipal Electric Plant? The question
came up in council last night. Aid.
Smith gave the council to understand
that the G. T. P. would probably not
allow the city to lease this site, but if
the council were to approach Mr. Hays
or Mr. Chamberlain he thought that no
doubt permission would be granted for
a temporary occupancy of the site by
the city under promise to remove by a
certain time.
Aid. Hilditch ."Obstacles seem to be
always cropping up in the way of this
lighting scheme, but we have simply
to meet them as they arise. Had we not
better wire Mr. Chamberlain to see if
we may not use this site even only until
next spring when negotiations regarding
the purchase of a site can be opened us?"
Aid. Barrow: "It is only a temporary
plant so a temporary site should serve."
The Mayor: "I think we should leave
the matter to the committee, let them
pursue their own course with it."
Aid. Pattullo: "Yes, the committee
had better deal with this matter, and
with the matter of a permanent site."
Aid. Mclntyre: "I agree with Aid.
Hilditch that we must go on and make
headway in the matter. The reason I
acquiesced in the purchase of the B. C.
company's boilers etc., was because I
thought so much of this plant was already installed and we could get ahead
quickly.   I think we should follow Aid. ���
Hilditch's suggestion, and wire Mr.
Chamberlain about it."
Aid. Mobley: "It would be better for
the committee to write explaining the
situation fully to Mr. Chamberlain, and
asking him to wire in reply."
This opinion was regarded favorably by
the council, and progress was reported
with the lighting problem.
TRIP UP THE SKEENA
Dr.    McKechnie   of   Opinion    that
Progress Will  Be  Rapid
PERSONAL
Dr. R. E. MeKechnie has just returned to Vancouver after a trip through
the country in the vicinity of Prince
Rupert, on which he was accompanied
by his brother, Mr. Eberts McKechnie.
They went up the Skeena, taking in
the country about Manson Lake and
toward the Parsnip River, a section
which is at present visited only by
prospectors. At State Creek they
inspected the promising development
work which is now being done on the
claims of the old Forty-third Mining
Company under the direction of Mr.
Beach.
Mr. McKechnie is of the opinion
that when the district traversed is
opened up by the G. T. P. its advancement will be very rapid. In nearly
every river and creek on the journey
signs were seen which indicated that
quartz mining might be carried on
with good results, and the rolling land
which extends in vast tracts at various
points is sure to attract settlers and
be developed for agricu.tural purposes.
County Magistrate Returns
Magistrate McMullin who was summoned by telegram to Stewart to attend
an inquest there upon a man who was
found shot but whose name has not
transpired, is expected to return today
with the Bruno.
Life is a measure to be filled, not a
cup to be drained.���President Hadley.
For the first time since their marriage,
Mr. and Mrs. Cohen received at their
home yesterday. Tea was served by
Mrs. Cohen with the assistance of Mrs.
Wimestein and Mra. Director. The
tables were beautifully decorated and
an enjoyable evening was spent. Quite
a number of guests were present.
Mrs. W. D. Edgecombe, arrived from
the East a few days ago, and will spend
the winter with her husband in their
new home at the G. T. P. engineer's
residency  opposite  Kitselas.

Kitselas merchants are busy getting

report having had a most excellent-
business during the past six months and
are laying in big stocks of merchandise
to supply the demand through the winter
as they fear an early close of navigation. The Skeena river has been steadily
falling the past ten days and before
the rain was lower than ever known at
this time of the year before.
Mrs. Carlos Gillespie came up from
Puyallup,Washington recently and will
spend two or three weeks at Kitselas
on a vacation trip. She is accompanied
by Mr. Gillespie's mother.
Three petitions were presented to
the Mayor by the City Clerk at last
night's city council meeting. Two of
them were for plankways, and the third
from W* L. Barker, architect, requested
permission to dump earth on Second
avenue in connection with the work of
excavating a chamber as nearly fire
proof as possible in the rear of the
Optimist building to accommodate the
gasoline engine used for power. The
petition was presented by Mr. Barker
on behalf of G. W. Morrow, and was referred to the streets, works and property committee along with the others.
INLANDER CROWDED

For   All   Applying   For   Berths
With a "Come on, boys, the water's

night with the largest load both of passengers and freight the Inlander has
ever handled. The steamer has just
come out of dry dock and is in first class
shape. The stage of water is just right
for her to make a speedy trip. Not all
who applied for berths could be accommodated, but among the first class
were: E. J. Everson, D. Newell, Rev.

The steamer St. Denis, of the Boscowitz Steamship Company, is to leave
Vancouver on or about November
5, when her charter to the local company expires, to go to Central America, where she is to be used in the
coasting trade. The new charterers
will engage a captain and crew and
will take the vessel over at Victoria
on the expiration of her local charter.
The steamship has been used by the
Boscowitz Company since the loss of
the old Venture and now that the
new steamer of the company is in
service, operating with the Vadso, the
St. Denis is not required. If another
steamer is needed the company will
arrange for one in time for next season's
trade.
The St. Denis is owned by a British
company and was formerly used in a
service between San Diego and Mexican
ports.

SIR WILFRID
AT MONTREAL
v PSIS OF  ADDRESS AT  EUCHARISTIC  CONGR SS
Ha Retu ned rom West to Offer
Congratu ations to Congress and
Give Assurances of Perfect Religious   Freedom of the Dominion.
At the Eucharistic Congress recently
held in Montreal the premier of Canada,
says the Toronto Star was a marked
figure in his dress suit contrasting with
the gorgeous robes of the cardinals and
bishops. Sir Wilfrid said that he had
come from the Western Provinces of
this vast Dominion that in his capacity as
Prime'Minister of the country he might
offer to Cardinal Vannutelli and the
Congress hs warm congratulations and
his assurances of the perfect freedom,
both civil and religious, enjoyed in the
Dominion. Nowhere in the world could
a place have been selected, which gave
better proof of this freedom than Montreal, where there was freedom in such
matters which few countries could
boast of.
"Canada is essential y a land of
contrasts," said Sir Wilfrid. "We
have con rasts of people, of religions,
of climate, an i everything that goes
to the making of a great people. We
are a monarchy, and yet a democracy. We have no privileged classes. All are e.ual before the law to the
humblest citizen. Our Sovareign does
not profess the faith which has brought
us together, yet here we Catholics
have more freedom than is accorded in
many professedly Catholic countries,
and for that reason I claim for my country, Canada, and Great Britain, that of
all countries they are the most truly free."
In this Sir Wilfrid said he did not
even except the United States, which
shared with Canada its spirit of freedom and religious tolerance.
"And," h said, "it seems to me it is
for that reason that Montreal was
properly chosen for this congress, to
how ;o the world the privileges which
are here exercised inder the law, without any person or organization being
offended. All religions here are on the
same footing. Those we do not profess
we respect, and those who do not share
our belief respect it, and thus we of
French origin piously continue the faith
of our ancestors. Without ostentation
we have continued the faith of Champlain,
of Maisonneuve, and of those heroic
priests and missionaries and navigators
who in bygone days opened up the
country and were the real pioneers of
this Dominion, and of the faith which
we perpetuate. The thoughts which
animated them are ours to-day."
Sir Wilfrid remarked that of late in
continental France and Europe a certain amount of friction had developed,
but there in Canada there was complete security for the discussion of all
religious matters which must arise as
long as men live together in common
society.
There was a movement in Eurpoe
tending toward angosticism, but this
the Premier strongly combated.
"If this idea that there is no power
above us should gain sway," said Sir
Wilfrid, "what will become of our
society? The first duty of mah and
of the Government is to assure the
security of the individual and freedom of opinion. It would be a great
misfortune to take away from the
common .citizen the certainty that
above all the troubles and injustices
of this life there is the certainty of
the eternal justice of God. Instead
of the idea that there is nothing in the
after life, how much better it would be
to believe that- in future there is real
life? And it is in freedon to believe
and to promulgate this belief that this
country has so much more to show
than some European countries have
evinced of late."

EDITOR   WILLISON   SAYS   WE
ARE ALL BOOSTERS
Finds That Fishery Resources Alone
Justifies a Large City At This
Point.���Is Impressed With Prinee
Rupert's   Creditable   Buildings.
Sir Mackenzie Bowell and Mr. and
Mrs. J. S. Willison of Toronto, after
spending a few days at Victoria, reached
here this morning on their return from
Prince Rupert and Stewart, says the
Vancouver Province. The ex-Premier
of the Dominion and Mr. Willison, who
is editor of the Toronto News, were
favorably impressed with the agricultural, fisheries and mineral wealth of
Northern British Columbia.
"I am convinced that Prince Rupert
has a great future and that it will
become a very important shipping and
distributing center as the Pacific Coast
terminus of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway," said Mr. Willison to The
Province. "The town has a population
of over 5000;. It is growing rapidly and
many of the buildings are very creditable. What most impressed me was the
spirit of optimism which animates
its inhabitants. Every man, woman and
child up there is a 'booster,' as they say
in the West.
"Although I did not get inland I
gathered a great deal of information
about the vast undeveloped resources
of the interior country, all of which
will tend later on to contribute to
Prince Rupert's growth and prosperity. The harbor seems to be an excellent one. In the halibut and other
fisheries in Hecate Straits, Prince Rupert has an asset which in itself would
justify the existence of quite a large place.
"There seems to be no doubt that the
major portion of the fish destined for
the Eastern market will be shipped by
rail from there, with the completion of
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. The
advantages offered there were recognized
by the Canadian Fish and Cold Storage
Company, which proposes engaging in
the fisheries on an extensive scale.
It is now erecting on the harbor front
a cold storage plant with a capacity of
7,000,000 pounds.
"The building will be a four-storey
affair of concrete and structural steel
and in addition to freezing fish the company  will  engage in  the  business of
mild curing various varieties for the
domestic and foreign markets. I understand that it will operate half a
dozen steam trawlers on the halibut
banks. All the non-edible fish will be
converted into fertilizing material, a
site for the plant having been located
on an island some distance from Prince
Rupert."
