(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sept. 21���An ugly mob
surrounded Miss Le Neve as she was
taken to the Bow street court room this
morning and the police had a strenuous
time in protecting the prisoner. She was
completely unnerved by these demonstrations. Although she remained outwardly calm as the crowd hissed and
threatened, when she entered the court
room she became hysterical and the
services of a doctor had to be summoned
The police had to use their clubs on
the crowd and had great difficulty in
scattering them.
The demonstration is supposed to be
the result of the evidence at the last hearing given by Mrs. Jackson, a neighbor,
who said Le Neve had told her she was
waiting to step into Mrs. Crippen's
shoes.
Mr. Newton offered no defence when
the crown completed its case this morning, explaining that he reserved the
testimony on his side wutil the accused
were placed on trial.
Dr. Crippen and Miss Le Neve were
then bound over for trial at the Central

Beverley, Mass., Sept. 19.���The publication of a story in certain newspapers,
purporting to come from Beverley and
announcing that President Taft has decided to step aside as a presidential
candidate in 1912 to make way for Col
onel Roosevelt, brought many inquiries
to the summer capital today. It was
decided not to dignify the story (which
is reported to be without any foundation whatever with a statement.
It can be stated that there has been
no change in President Taft's attitude
toward a second term since he told a
number of friends a few months ago
that he would accept a second nomination if his party desired it.

CITY IMPROVEMENT'S PROGRESS
City Engineer's and S. P. McMordie's
Contracts in Full Swing
The work of grading etc., begun by
the city engineer on Second street, and
S. P. MeMordie on Second avenue at
the same point in Section 1 is proceeding
apace. A big squad of men is engaged
on Second avenue for Mr. MeMordie
and the citizens owning property and
occupying offices on this portion of the
avenue are highly pleased to see the
workmen so busy improving the district
though they realize that for a time the
operations will cause some slight inconvenience.
' It is expected that some 300 men will
be engaged upon the work before long,
and the work will be rapidly accomplished
Work is also going ahead fast on
S. H. Watson's grading contract on
Second avenue beyond Lynch's comer.
Mr. Watson has a big gang of men on
and process of cutting down to grade the
big hump of ground on the line of the
avenue is in a progressive stage. A
good deal of rock is being encountered
and blasted.
Another fine wholesale warehouse is
projected for Prince Rupert on a site
abiut 50 feet east of the new Kelly
Douglas building. The promoters of
the plan for this new structure are
Messrs. Stewart and Mobley, and arrangements are practically concluded by
which J. Piercy Morris and Co. will
co-operate with them in the doubling
of the design so that the warehouses of
both firms will be side by side, similar
in external design and size, and constructed simultaneously as if one large
warehouse. The firms, however, will
remain distinct, and the warehouses
within will be separated by' partitions,
and will be somewhat different in size
as regards floor space owing to the
nature of the sitesleased by the respective
firms. The Piercy Morris warehouse
warehouse will allow of the larger floor
area about 11,500 squa4e feet as far as
can be ascertained at the present stage
of the plans which are not yet completed.
The combined building will be 100
feet wide, 50 feet for each warehouse,
and about 72 feet deep. It will be four
storeys high on the waterfront side, and
designed somewhat similarly to the
warehouse at present under construction
for the Kelly Douglas firm. On the
First avenue side the building will be
one story high. The warehouses will be
solid structures plain and servicable
throughout the interior with the exception of tbe office departments in
each which will be finished and equipped in perfect modern style. Goods
elevators will be installed in both
firms' warehouses.
The exterior of the building will be
similar to that of the Kelly Douglas
building, iron sheeted and substantial
in appearance as well as ih fact. The
architect to whom the design has been
entrusted is G. L. Proctor whose familiarity with this class of building is extensive. So far the figures regarding the
probable cost of the structure are not
however, forthcoming.
Labor On Every Steamer
The Cottage City came in from the
south at nine o'clock last night and
among her passengers were a number of
laborers. J. H. Rogers who is agent for
most of the American boats touching
here, "says laborers have been arriving
by every steamer during the past week.
The Cottage City unloaded here eighty
tons of lumber and thirty tons of miscellaneous freight.

LANGFORD-JOHNSOtfVlGHT
Now Probable That It Will Be Pulled
Off   in   London
(Special to the Optimist)
Boston, Sept. 22.���Although the
negotiations for the Langford-Johnson
match failed yesterday, it is likely the
battle will take place after all, as McIntosh has offered thirty thousand
dollars as a side purse to have the contest pulled off in London.
FELL IN THE DARK
SERIOUSLY HURT
LONGSHOREMAN   DALY   TAKEN
TO  HOSPITAL
Accident Occurred at 1:30 a.m. Today���Daly Has Concussion of the
Brain. Need for City Light and an
Ambulance Emphasized.
PEOPLE'S HEADS
WERE CUT OFF
ALSO ARMS AND  LEGS  IN  THE
AWFUL   SMASH
Two Electric Cars Both Crowded
With Sightseers For State Fair
In Collision���Forty Were Killed and
Only    One    Escaped    Uninjured.
An ugly accident occurred at 1:30
this morning to a longshoreman named
Daly who was endeavoring to take a
short cut across the creek at Eighth
street. He stumbled in the darkness
and pitching forward fell heavily some
distance in the ditch below, the fall
rendering him unconscious.
John Goodman of the Grand Hotel
whose attention was called to the accident, realizing that Daly was badly
hurt, had him conveyed to a shack on
Eighth street, and immediately telephoned to the police station. P. C.
McArthur promptly arrived and sent
for Dr. Tremayne who examined the
injured man, and found him suffering
from severe concussion of the brain and
also a serious scalp wound. After receiving medical attention Daly was
carried by Messrs. Cole, Blackie and
Carmichael to the police station where
a bed was made up for him in one of the
cells. He remained in an unconscious
condition while being moved, and this
morning when Dr. Tremayne called to
see him he was still unconscious.
The doctor advised his removal to
the G. T. P. Hospital, and Chief Constable McCarvell at once set about
making arrangements for conveying
him there. He at first thought that
he might be taken by launch but later
it was decided to hire H. Carney's light
express wagon which was fitted with a
stretcher and spring mattress to be used
as an ambulance. At 11 a.m, today,
Daly was taken to the hospital still
unconscious, the stretcher on which he
lay well wrapped in blankets being
protected from the rain by canvas
sheeting.
The need for a proper ambulance
wagon is, however, very clearly emphasized by the trouble necessary to procure
the makeshift: and it is pretty evident
that the new general hospital cannot
be too soon completed; while the sooner
the city lighting plant is ready the better.
Baseball Games Yesterday
Vancouver, Sept. 22.���(Special)���The
results of the league games played yesterday are as follows:
Vancouver three, Tacoma two.
Spokane six, Seattle four. t
TO ASSASSINATE MIKADO
(Special to the Optimist)
Fort Wayne, Sept. 22.���A most awful
wreck occurred late yesterday afternoon
on the Fort Wayne-Bluffington Electric
railway. Two crowded cars going to the
state fair crashed into each other. At
least forty were killed. Arms, legs and
even heads of the killed were severed,
so terrific was the shock. Of the fifty
people in the cars only one escaped
unhurt.
The county, town and railway officials are holding an inquest today.
The conductors of both cars were
badly injured but they managed to
crawl back and flag the Indianapolis
limited, and thus saved another disaster.
NOTABLE RETIREMENT
Australian   Railway     Commissioner
Could Not Stand   Criticism
Details    Said    By    Authorities    To
Have Been Exaggerated
(Special to the Optimist)
Tokio, Slept. 22.���The details of the
plot to assassinate the Mikado are said
to be exaggerated. It is said the story
arose from the arrests of Socialists
three months ago who were found manufacturing bombs. This is the statement
the authorities make for publication
this morning.
(Special to the Optimist)
Melbourne, Sept. 22.���The retirement of Thomas Tait, commissioner
of the Victoria state railways, is announced. Tait, who is a Canadian,
was formerly secretary of the Canadian
Pacific railway company. He organized
the railways of Victoria and made them
pay where they had been losing thousands daily. A recent chapter of fatal
accidents has caused a great deal of
criticism, which Taft has resented and
he has resigned in consequence.
WHITEHORSE NOW
* SHIPPING ORE
REGULAR SHIPMENTS TO THE
TACOMA SMELTER
Pueblo Mine Can Turn Out Two
Hundred Tons Daily and Other
Mines Will Begin���Ten Thousand
Tons   a   Month   the   Estimate.
Tacoma, Sept. 20.���The first shipments of copper ore to be shipped
from the Pueblo mine near Whitehorse, Yukon, since that property
passed into the hands of the Atlas
Copper Company, which is controlled
by W. D. Greenough of Spokane, will
reach Tacoma today and tomorrow
from Skagway on the freighters Santa
Ana and Edith.
The Pueblo mines, which have just
been tapped by a recently constructed
fourteen-mile spur of the White Pass
& Yukon Railroad, have a present
equipment capable of turning out over
200 tons of ore a day. At the Pueblo
mine nearly 100,000 tons of the ore
lies exposed, ready to be blasted and
dumped into the cars. It will only be
s short time before 2500 tons weekly
will be sent down to Skagway. The
steamships Edith, La Touche and
Santa Ana will then make weekly trips
to Skagway for this ore. This means
a total shipment of over 10,000 tons
each month. There are several more
mines within a few miles of the Pueblo
which the Atlas Company will develop
as soon as the Pueblo mine returns a
surplus sufficient to capitalize the new
works, so that the total of 10,000 tons
a month, which now seems assured,
may be only a fraction of the ore that
will come down at this time next year. THE    PRINCE   RUPER1    OPTIMIST

August 9th and took to the river in
canoes, passing through lovely hills
and prairie country on to Fort George-
The distance is three hundred and fifty
miles and the party made the distance
in six and one-half days.
Ten days were spent at Fort George
and in its vicinity, the party on the go
every day looking into the various interesting points already mapped out
for them to visit or picked up in conversations with the pioneers.
On the morning of August 19th the
diamond hitch was again thrown over
the backs of the pack animals and the
trail was leisurely followed through the
Nechaco valley and across she low
divide into the Bulkley watershed.
"This is a country," observes Mr. Talbot
"that would delight the heart of the
English farmer, and I believe, too, that
he is calculated to be more successful
there than the farmer of any other
country, for certain reasons which I
have not time to go into, but which are
readily apparent to one who knows
rural England and can compare it with
these productive valleys."
Mushing leaisurely through the
Nechaco valley they picked up the
telegraph trail at Tsinkut Lake, and
followed that all the way to Hazel on,
arriving there on September 15th. "We
were very much impressed with the
agricultural possibilities of the Nechaco
and Bulk.ey valleys," remarked Mr.
Talbot, "and we were also impressed
with the number of settlers already
there or going into these valleys. Most
of the land in the Nechaco seems to be
taken up and much of it already developed.
"No, we met with no thrilling adventures and no particular hardships
of any kind. One thing remarkable
was that the weather, on the whole,
was fine, which of course added much
to the enjoyableness of the trip."
Mr. Talbot leaves on the Prince Rupert
returning direct to London; Mr. Lett
will be here a few days.

The Progress and Opportunities number of the Optimist has been circulated
far and wide over the face of the world
and has brought forth comments of
surprise on Prince Rupert's rapid development. As an advertisement of the city
it is probably the best that has ever gone
out. Every mail brings letters of kind
words for the Optimist and requests for
more special editions, and each mail
brings them from greater distance.
Here are  a few typical  comments:
"I must congratulate you upon your
clever production: it is printed upon excellent paper and the illustrations are
decidedly well executed while the printing is clear and artistic."���K. E. Kerr,
Peterbrough, Ont.
"We are indebted to you for a copy
of the Prince Rupert Optimist Bpecial
and note with pleasure the rapid progress of your city"���Keoffel and Esser
Co., New York.
"Many thanks for the Progress edition
of the Optimist. It is certainly a handsome edition and the letterpress, illustrations and reading matter reflect
great credit on the staff of the paper."���
Ernest McGaffey, Secretary Vancouver
Island Development Co.
"Let me congratulate you on your
Progress and Opportunities editions of
the Optimist, It is a good one in every
way."���D. Budd White, Niagara Falls,
Ont.
"We have received a copy of the Prince
Rupert Optimist of Aug. 20. We had no
idea your city could produce a paper
like this. It is a credit to the city."���
Canadian Kodak Co., Toronto.
"Your Progress and Opportunities
number is a fine one. It gives the best
description of your city I have seen.
Send me ten more copies."���J. C. Richland, Cincinnati, Ohio.

firms. The Piercy Morris warehouse
warehouse will allow of the larger floor
area about 11,500 squa4e feet as far as
can be ascertained at the present stage
of the plans which are not yet completed.
The combined building will be 100
feet wide, 50 feet for each warehouse,
and about 72 feet deep. It will be four
storeys high on the waterfront side, and
designed somewhat similarly to the
warehouse at present under construction
for the Kelly Douglas firm. On the
First avenue side the building will be
one story high. The warehouses will be
solid structures plain and servicable
throughout the interior with the exception of the office departments in
each which will be finished and equipped in perfect modern style. Goods
elevators will be installed in both
firms' warehouses.
The exterior of the building will be
similar to that of the Kelly Douglas
building, iron sheeted and substantial
in appearance as well as ih fact. The
architect to whom the design has been
entrusted is G. L. Proctor whose familiarity with this class of building is extensive. So far the figures regarding the
probable cost of the structure are not,
however, forthcoming.

Triple   Alliance   Renewed
Rome, Sept. 22.���(Special)���It is reported that the triple alliance between
Italy, Austria and Germany has been
renewed for six yean.
An ugly accident occurred at 1:30
this morning to a longshoreman named
Daly who was endeavoring to take a
short cut across the creek at Eighth
street. He stumbled in the darkness
and pitching forward fell heavily some
distance in the ditch below, the fall
rendering him unconscious.
John Goodman of the Grand Hotel
whose attention was called to the accident, realizing that Daly was badly
hurt, had him conveyed to a shack on
Eighth street, and immediately telephoned to the police station. P. C.
McArthur promptly arrived and sent
for Dr. Tremayne who examined the
injured man, and found him suffering
from severe concussion of the brain and
also a serious scalp wound. After receiving medical attention Daly was
carried by Messrs. Cole, Blackie and
Carmichael to the police station where
a bed was made up for him in one of the
cells. He remained in an unconscious
condition while being moved, and this
morning when Dr. Tremayne called to
see him he was still unconscious.
The doctor advised his removal to
the G. T. P. Hospital, and Chief Constable McCarvell at once set about
making arrangements for conveying
him there. He at first thought that
he might be taken by launch but later
it was decided to hire H. Carney's light
express wagon which was fitted with a
stretcher and spring mattress to be used
as an ambulance. At 11 a.m, today,
Daly was taken to the hospital still
unconscious, the stretcher on which he
lay well wrapped in blankets being
protected from the rain by canvas
sheeting.
The need for a proper ambulance
wagon is, however, very clearly emphasized by the trouble necessary to procure
the makeshift: and it is pretty evident
that the new general hospital cannot
be too soon completed; while the sooner
the city lighting plant is ready the better.

TO ASSASSINATE MIKADO
Details    Said    By    Authorities    To
Have Been Exaggerated
(Special to the Optimist)
Tokio, Sept. 22.���The details of the
plot to assassinate the Mikado are said
to be exaggerated. It is said the story
arose from the arrests of Socialists
three months ago who were found manufacturing bombs. This is the statement
the authorities make for publication
this morning.
(Special to the Optimist)
Fort Wayne, Sept. 22.���A most awful
wreck occurred late yesterday afternoon
on the Fort Wayne-Bluffington Electric
railway. Two crowded cars going to the
state fair crashed into each other. At
least forty were killed. Arms, legs and
even heads of the killed were severed,
so terrific was the shock. Of the fifty
people in the cars only one escaped
unhurt.
The county, town and railway officials are holding an inquest today.
The conductors of both cars were
badly injured but they managed to
crawl back and flag the Indianapolis
limited, and thus saved another disaster.
NOTABLE RETIREMENT
Australian   Railway    Commissioner
Could Not Stand   Criticism
(Special to the Optimist)
Melbourne, Sept. 22.���Tbe retirement of Thomas Tait, commissioner
of the Victoria state railways, is announced. Tait, who is a Canadian,
was formerly secretary of the Canadian
Pacific railway company. He organized
the railways of Victoria and made them
pay where they had been losing thousands daily. A recent chapter of fatal
accidents has caused a great deal of
criticism, which Taft has resented and
he has resigned in consequence.
WHITEHORSE NOW
* SHIPPING ORE
REGULAR   SHIPMENTS   TO   THE
TACOMA SMELTER
Pueblo Mine Can Turn Out Two
Hundred Tons Daily and Other
Mines Will Begin���Ten Thousand
Tons   a   Month   the   Estimate.
Tacoma, Sept. 20.���The first shipments of copper ore to be shipped
from the Pueblo mine near Whitehorse, Yukon, since that property
passed into the hands of the Atlas
Copper Company, which is controlled
by W. D. Greenough of Spokane, will
reach Tacoma today and tomorrow
from Skagway on the freighters Santa
Ana and Edith.
The Pueblo mines, which have just
been tapped by a recently constructed
fourteen-mile spur of the White Pass
& Yukon Railroad, have a present
equipment capable of turning out over
200 tons of ore a day. At the Pueblo
mine nearly 100,000 tons of the ore
lies exposed, ready to be blasted and
dumped into the cars. It will only be
s short time before 2500 tons weekly
will be sent down to Skagway. The
steamships Edith, La Touche and
Santa Ana will then make weekly tripe
to Skagway for this ore. This means
a total shipment of over 10,000 tons
each month. There are several more
mines within a few miles of the Pueblo
which the Atlas Company will develop
as soon as the Pueblo mine returns a
surplus sufficient to capitalize the new
works, so that the total of 10,000 tons
a month, which now seems assured,
may be only a fraction of the ore that
will come down at this time next year. THE  PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

REPORTS FROM
HUDSON BAY
G. W. MORROW
PROFESSOR   BROCK  TELLS   HIS
VERSION   OF  TRIP
Declarea in Official Report There Are
No Insurmountable Obstacle* to
Navigation���They Generally Called
It the Mediterranean.
OFFERS
FOR SALE
Ottawa, Sept. 17���The secretary
of state received today from Prof. R.
W. Brock, who was with Earl Grey's
party to the far north, an official mailed
report giving a further account of the
trip. More attention is paid to that
part of the trip from Winnipeg to Norway
House. There is a description of St.
Andrew's locks and of Old Fort Garry,
which his excellency suggests should
be preserved by the nation as an historical monument.
Mr. Geo. Grey, a cousin of his excellency, who was with the party, injured
his leg while struggling with a pike,
and was lame for trie rest of the journey.
The more important portion of the
report deals with the trip out from
Churchill Harbor, which is described
as a natural one, shut in by projecting rocky points. The run to the straits
was without incident. On Monday,
Aug. 27, the party left Burwell and
steamed out into the Atlantic. On
the Labrador coast stops were made at
Okaka and Indian Harbor, one of the
Grenfell missions.
Prof. Brock concludes with some interesting comments as to the feasibility of the Hudson Bay. He says the
trip through Hudson Bay and Hudson
Straits was as pleasant as a summer
sail on the Atlantic. One might have
been cruising on the Solent. Certainly,
if one did not know, he could never
guess he was in what has been more
or less popularly regarded as a Polar
sea.
"We fell into the habit of speaking
of it as the Mediterranean. For three
hundred years it has been frequented
by ships of all descriptions, from pinnaces of twenty tons to men-of-war
of seventy-four guns, and finally to
the Earl Grey of two thousand five
hundred tons. Eight hundred ships
are reported to have entered these
waters in addition to whalers who for
many years have operated in the bay.
"For 178 years Hudson Bay ships
have come in without missing a year,
said one. In the history of the bay
and straits, with the large number of
vessels that have entered���the vast
majority sailing ships without auxiliary power to help them through ice,
with no artificial aid to navigation,
nor even detailed or accurate charts-
only two vessels are reported having
been lost.
"When detailed charts are available,
lights and wireless stations established, currents and magnetism carefully
studied, and sailing masters are familiar with the route, the length of the
saason of navigation may probably be
lengthened beyond its present duration, which the consensus of opinion
among those who have had experience
in these waters places at three and a
half to four months, from the middle
of July to November.
"There seems to be no inherent difficulties in the way of again utilizing,
if necessary, the back door of Canada,
through which, until the advent of
railways, the trade of the west was
conducted. It should be feasible to
ship cattle of the west in modern steamships over the route, which in the tiny
sailboats of the eighteenth century the
court ladies of Louis XIV, could travel
���e excursions."

PLANNING DEVELOPMENT WORK OF WINTER
Prospects That Will Probably Grow Into Mines Before the Daisies
Bloom Again.���Mining Activity All Along the Skeena.
After returning from a visit to the
properties R. P. Trimble of Portland,
Ore., has bonded the two groups of
claims located on Rocher de Boule
mountain by W. S. Sargent and Colin
Munroe for $65,000; two deals being
made on the claims, one of the groups
going for $40,000 and the other for
$25,000. Business at home demands
Mr. Trimble's attention and he left
Friday morning for Portland, accompanied by W. J. Gearin, a son of ex-
U. S. Senator Gearin of Oregon. If
he is able to return in time this fall,
work will be started and kept up all
winter. If he is unable to do this operations will be delayed till next spring.
New    Strike    Near    Hazelton
On the north side of the hill north
of Hazelton, and not much more than
four miles and a half from Hazelton,
the claims recently located by Long,
McBain and Latham are showing
evidences of wealth that add materially
to the prospects of the Hazelton district
becoming a mining camp of the first
rank. Although only staked within the
last month, the locators have with
great energy cut good trails to the
various showings of ore and opened up
the ledges in a number of places.
The assayer's report on samples
submitted has just been received and
gives values running up as high as
$146 per ton, and there is no doubt but
that the claims have everything in sight
that has returned high values on Nine-
mile and Fourmile.
The big ledge appears to be twenty-
five or more feet in width and well
mineralized. No boundary has yet been
found. In several places ore has been
uncovered in veins up to two feet pr
more in width that has every appearance
of high-grade rock, being galena with
some gray copper and an occasional
lump the size of a bean of the high grade
silver mineral that has given such as
tonishing values on Fourmile hill.
Situated at an elevation of only a few
hundred feet above the level of the
Skeena, surface work can be continued
until late in the fall. The wagon road
north of town reaches a point within
two miles of the claims and the Robinson lake trail almost touches the property.
Another   Babine   Discovery
Another strike of galena ore is reported
this week and the samples brought into
Hazelton by the locators look as fine
as anything yet found in that line, says
the Omineca Herald. Five men are
interested in the group of claims that
have been staked, A. H. Ridsdale,
Gordon McLellan, John Salt, Fred
Foster, and H. B. Thorn. Three ledges
have been discovered with a width of two
or three feet and all carrying good ore.
From town the claims are about thirty-
six miles, three miles off the Babine
trail, the point where they turn off
being about thirty-three miles out.
This leaves the new find about eighteen
miles from the surveyed line of the
railway with a water grade for the
entire   distance.
Mr. Ridsdale is much elated over the
discovery and looks to see quite a stir
in the locality as the country close by is
very promising and there is every reason
to expect further locations.
Hanson Bonds Four Claims
Four claims on the Nine Mile mountain, owned by James Latham, S.
B. Slinger and Chas. Sanberg have
been bonded to Charles L. Hanson
of Victoria. No price was announced.
The prospects involved in the deal are
the Dawson Fraction, joining the Sunrise group on the south, and the three
claims of the Silver Bell'group, joining
the Silver Cup group on the north and
east. Mr. Hanson will let a contract
for   considerable 'work   this   fall   and
winter if satisfactory arrangements can
be made.
Work  Resumed On  Iron  Mask
James Dyer returned from Rossland on the steamer Hazelton and
will soon resume work on the Iron Mask
group of claims on Four Mile hill, in
which he is an owner, with Thomas
Stephenson and D. L. Purvis. They
already have a good showing of ore in
the open cut from which returns of $68
have been received.
Another  New  Townaite
i. C. Gillespie, British Columbia
land surveyor, has been engaged by
C. G. Harvey and W. J. Larkworthy
to survey a tract of land just east of
Lot 882, known as the Taylor section,
as a townsite, and the lots will be
placed on the market some time during
the coming winter. The new town
will be situated across the Bulkley
river from Four Mile hill, where rich
mineral showings are being opened.
The Erie gives promise of becoming
one of the big mines of the province,
and if other properties develop in the
same manner, a pay roll will be in sight
to support a large town.
Bought    a    Farm    at    Bulkley
Wm. J. Driver and Geo. Driver,
father and son, returned Tuesday from
Bulkley valley, where they completed
the purchase of the farm owned by
Chas. Norris and took an option on
another piece of farmland adjoining.
Both have returned to their home in
.Seattle where they will spend the winter.
Next year they will come north to
reside permanently on their purchase.
New Suspension Bridge
The' first cable of the new suspension bridge above Hazelton has been
thrown across the river and by the
fifteenth of October the bridge will be
open for traffic.

Will Induce Hundreds of Prospectors
To Investigate Kitsumkalum and
Naat Valleys and Add to Prince
Rupert Trade.
J. Phelan, Superintendent of the
Yukon Telegraph line, has this week
commenced the sonstruction of the
telegraph line from Kitsumkalum to
Stewart, Portland Canal says the Big
Canyon Weekly. Lineman Bostook
and ten men left for Stewart Saturday
and will commence work from that point
without delay, and it is reported that
as soon as the material can be landed
at Kitsumkalum, a gang will also commence work from the Kjtsumkalum end.
Under this arrangement, the two gangs
should meet between the Kitsumkalum
lake and the Naas river early in January,
when Stewart and the many mining
camps of the Portland Canal country
will be in communication with Prince
Rupert.
It is safe to predict the the construction of this line will be the means
if inducing hundreds of prospectors
going into the hills between Portland
Canal and the Kitsumkalum lake this
fall and next spring, those hills so far
hardly having been touched by the
prospector. The range crossing in vicinity of the Kitsumkalum lake is the same
range as that at the head of the Canal,
a fact realized by tlie majority of the
Canal prospectors. A number of good
finds have been made between the Lake
and Naas by the few prospectors who
have ventured in those hills, and during
the past summer development work
was carried on by several prospectors,
but until a larger number of prospectors
get into that country and more systematic prospecting is carried on, the vast
wealth of those hills will remain unknown to the outside world.

Is in the form of a great rounded hill,
very close to Perry Peak, the island
that rose last year, and was discovered by officers of the revenue cutter
Perry.
The revenue cutter Bear, which has

and also reported that officers of the
revenue cutter Tahoma are making
a survey of the changes. The party
landed on the new island last Saturday,
and expect to camp there a week or ten

WHO HAS THE PULL?
The boys who discuss municipal politics with their meals are speculating over
an alleged contest between the chairman of the streets committee and the chairman of the finance committee as to which has the greater pull at the city hall. The
contestants are probably better known as Aid. Pattullo, (.Second avenue) and
Aid. Lynch, (also Second avenue). Each has a gang of men doing grading work
adjacent to their property. Aid. Lynch, (also Second avenue) won the first round
by having the first contract start at his end but Aid. Pattullo, (Second avenue) is
now leading in the race with two gangs, the city engineer on the side street and
Contractor McMordie's big gang on the front. It is rumored that Aid. Pattullo
(Second avenue) contemplates a further victory by having the first electric street
light at the corner of First and Second while Aid. Lynch (also Second avenue) will
off set this bold stroke by dividing Morse lake into wards.
A EIGHT HOUR DAY
A union man draws attention to another pledge of the mayor and aldermen
which has been broken. It is respecting the eight hour day. This was a prominent
plank in the campaign speeches yet the contractors on city work are working the
men nine and ten hours. It is true the wage is $3 for eight hours and $3.75 for ten
hours but the definition of an eight hour day according to organized labor unions
calls for time and a half for all time over eight hours in any one day. The contractors
state that the men prefer to work the ten hours, and the contractors naturally want
to push the work while the weather is favorable. The labor party on the other hand
claim that there are many idle men who want a share of the work and with extra
labor at the eight hours the work would proceed just as fast Now that the contracts
are signed up present conditions must stand but it is another proof that the council
either do not want to make good on some of their pledges or else they did not understand what they were pledging themselves to.
It would appear that Alfy and the organ are again tillicums.

A letter published elsewhere in this paper from a Kitsumkalum man is rather
a severe criticism of the agricultural department of the provincial government on
their plan of planting experimental orchards. The feature which the writer overlooks is the fact that no rancher need accept the offer but if he wants a first class
orchard this seems to be about the cheapest way to get one. Inasmuch as the orchard

TODAY'S POLICE COURT
Finny Fined For Furniture Finishing
on Fare Free Frolic
Victoria, Sept. 19.���It transpires that
the Canadian Northern Railway will
have to purchase its entire right-of-way
and station site and yards in British
Columbia, involving an expenditure of
several hundred thousand dollars. No
provision for a grant of crown lands
for railway purposes was made in the
contract negotiated between the company and the Provincial Government.
During his recent visit to Victoria
Mr. William Mackenzie, president of
the Canadian Northern, negotiated an
agreement respecting this matter. The
Provincial Government has decided
to sell the company the property required at a valuation of $5 per acre
for agricultural land, $2.50 per acre
for uplands, and $1 an acre for wild
lands, the inspection and classification to be made by a provincial land
surveyor to be mutually agreed upon.
This arrangement, of course, does
not relate to private property, the acquisition of which will have to be
negotiated with the various owners by
the right-of-way agents of the railway.
It will be recalled that the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway was granted a
free right-of-way as well as the necessary land for yards and sidings over
crown lands-
Magistrate Carss dealt this morning
with the case of E. Finny who appeared charged in the first instance
with having boarded the G. T. P. S. S.
Prince Rupert at Stewart when he had
not money with him to pay his fare.
To this charge accused pleaded guilty,
but said that he had money due him on
account of work done on the trail at
Stewart, which money was payable by
check to him at Prince Rupert he had
intended to settle with the purser there.
The Magistrate pointed out, however,
that according to law it is an offence to
board a steamer without means to pay
one's fare, and fined Finny a dollar and
costs.
Finny was further charged with having
caused wilful damage to property on
board the steamer, the property damaged being a chair. He pleaded guilty,
but maintained that the chair was
damaged when the officers of the steamer
were applying a little forceful persuasion to him over the matter of his
fare. This statement was corrected by
an officer, who stated that the chair
was deliberately broken by the accused
when it was placed for his comfort in
the room in which he was confined for
non-payment of his fare.
Finny offered to pay for the chair,
and the Magistrate fined him another
dollar and costs also ordering him to
pay the expense of repairing the chair
estimated at about $2.50. As the court
was adjourning Finny asked if the chair
would become his property on payment
of the $2.50, but was told that he would
be merely asked to pay the repair bill,
the chair being returned to the steamer.
with the Pacific Coast Steamship Compan
was expiring, the Treadwell Gold Mining Company sought to have it renewed.
The Pacific Coast Company did not
seem inclined to handle the freight at
the old figures and for a time it looked
as though the company would go
through.
The Treadwell people then took the
matter of forming a new company up
with Max Kalish of the Humboldt
Steamship Company and had started
preliminary details when the Pacific
Coast people agreed that, if certain
wharf improvements were arranged by
the Treadwell Company at Treadwell
they would renew the contract. These
improvements, a powder wharf and a
long freight wharf, are now being
completed at the property of the mining company, across the bay, and there
is no further talk of a new steamship
line.

SILVER CUP IS
SELLING FAST
WORK ON THE MINE IS PROGRESSING RAPIDLY
Reports Continue Encouraging���
Working On the Lower Tunnel
Now���Ore Being Sacked For Shipment   Aid. Smith's View.
Silver Cup Mines Limited is today
one of the best buys on the market.
Anyone who will go into the mining
properties in Northern British Columbia
will agree that Silver Cup is the most
promising. Lcoally a great deal is known
about this mine and as the owners and
managers are all local men who are
well known the utmost confidence is
felt, as is evidenced by the rapid sale
of the 100,000 shares that are now on
the market at 12 l-2c per share. Aid.
V. W. Smith, one of the chief owners and
directors states that the development
work has progressed very satisfactorily
all summer and the mine continues to
improve. The men are working on the
lower tunnel now and they have yet to
strike the first disappointment.     Mr.
Smith is in constant communication
with the mine and every report that
comes down only increases the confidence of  the  owners and  directors.
Silver Cup is on Ninemile mountain,
a short distance from Hazelton and the
G. T. P. To get the ore to transportation will be an easy undertaking and the
cost of shipping will be small. There is
an immense body of ore and the farther
down they go the ore continues in
quantity and value. The average of
$100 per ton will be received from top
to bottom. Such high values together
with the quantity will make make Silver
Cup very valuable.
At the present time men are engaging
in sacking ore for the first shipment and
in a few days this will be packed to
Hazelton and brought down on the
steamers. The result of this shipment
is being looked forward to with great
interest by the directors and the general
public as well, and the fact that the
shipment is being made is very encouraging to the investors.
J. R. Talpey, the fiscal agent for
Silver Cup reports very brisk sales of
the 100,000 share issue. Any who wish
to get in on this opportunity will find
Mr. Talpey at his office on Second
avenue,  Pattullo block.

Leading Candidate* For the Two
Governorships.���Frank Oliver To
Leave Cabinet and to Be Offered
Governorship  of  Alberta.
Ottawa, aSept. 19.���The governorships of both the northwestern provinces will shortly have to be filled.
Hon. A. E. Forget and Hon. G. H. V,
Bulyea have served the full term of
five years as lieutenant-governors of
Saskatchewan and Alberta respectively. It is not believed that either will
be re-appointed.
Mr. Forget has occupied the gov-
ernament house at Regina since 1898,
having served as lieutenant-governor
of the Northwest Territory prior to
the autonomy bills. It is understood
thst he intends to take up his residence in Montreal.
Leading candidates for the governorship of Saskatchewan are Mr. George
Brown of Regina and Mr. J. G. Turiff,
M. P. for East Assiniboia. The former
has the backing of the Scott government,
while Mr. Turiff is recommended by
all Liberal members of Parliament for
Saskatchewan.
In Alberta the situation derives interest from the probable retirement
of Hon. Frank Oliver from the Dominion cabinet. It is generally believed that sharp differences of opinion exist between Mr. Oliver and his
colleagues respecting questions of policy in the administration of the department of the interior.
The minister's regulations in regard to immigration were modified by
the government during his absence
in the Yukon and it is currently re
ported that differences of opinion as
to the proper method of allotment
of homesteads in the railway belt of
British Columbia terminated a few
years ago in an interview between
Mr. Oliver and Sir Wilfrid Laurier
at Kamloops, in the course of which
the   former   tendered   his   resignation.
The resignation was not accepted
at that time, but there is every reason to believe that within the next
few months Mr. Oliver will be succeeded in tbe cabinet by Premier Sifton of Alberta.
There is none the less every disposition on the part of the government to part with Mr. Oliver on good
terms and there is authority for the
statement that the minister has the
refusal of the governorship of Alberta.
WARSHIPS FOR CHINA
Uncle of Emperor Coming to United
States For Them
San Francisco, Sept. 19.���It is stated here that Charles M. Schwab, former president of the United Stales
Steel Corporation, is to meet Prince
Tsai Hsun, uncle of the Emperor of
China, in this city this week to dose
a deal for the building of a fleet of
war vessels for China. The Chinese
prince will reach port. Monday night
or early Tuesday morning.
In support of the assertion that
American shipyards are likely to be
given the work of buflcjihg the warships, John A. McGregor, president of
the iron works of San Francisco, is
quoted as saying: "When the Chinese
Government was determined upon
building a navy, the Bethlehem Steel
Company, through Schwab, drew up
plans and specifications for the vessels.. These, it is understood, have
been favorably considered. My information is to the effect that the
Chinese want a dozen or fifteen ships." THE

SKEENA VALLEY  PROVES GOOD
FRUIT   COUNTRY
Correspondent of Big Canyon Weekly
Pays Viait to Stewart's Ranch and
Pick* Fine Apple* and Prunes on
a  Sunday Morning.
i le the Skeena river valley a good
fruit country? There is no use in telling
traveller* it is, because there will be
just as many who will disbelieve the
statement as there are those who will
believe it. But to the skeptical ones,
we must say: Go to David Stewart's
opposite Copper river, see his orchards,
and then you will believe.
Your correspondent passed through
Mr. Stewart's ranch Sunday morning
and noticed over thirty apple trees,
different varieties, all not only in good
bearing, but so loaded down with fruit

that the limbs of every tree are propped
up. Trees of three and four years must
be propped as well as those six or eight
years old.
All told Mr. Stewart has about two
hundred trees, many set out in the
last two years, but the trees nine years
old and down to those of three and four
years are the ones that will astonish
the traveller. One traveller from Oregon
stated that he never saw better bearing
or better class fruits in Oregon than those
he recently saw on Mr. Stewart's ranch.
Two years ago Mr. Stewart sold
quite a lot of plums and prunes, but
this year, although he will no doubt
be able to place plums on the market
in Prince Rupert, he will have a standard
crop of prunes. ThiB year, for the first
���in seven years his prune trees will have
but a light crop, and as your correspondent can vouch for the crops for the
past few years, this year's light crop has
only be explained by allowing that
like everything else, prune trees must
have an "off year" too.

The Editor of the Prince Rupert
Optimist:
Sir,���
The government of British Columbia
in the past may have enjoyed the proud
distinction of being noted for its generosity to the settler, but this last move
whereby they propose to establish experimental orchards in the valleys of the
Kitsumkalum and Lakelse, is to my
way of thinking quite the contrary;
or probably, to be more explicit, it takes
on the form of a huge joke. However,
with your kind permission I will herein
try and set forth for the benefit of your
readers the purport of the contract and
leave it for them to judge whether it
is the settler or the government who
does the giving.
The contract says the settler who is
"fortunate" to secure the orchard must
first donate five acres of suitable land,
the same must be cleared and cleaned
up, then it must be seeded down to
clover or something else equally good.
Then it has to be fenced and supplied
with plenty of water for irrigation, etc.
Then it has to be supplied with the
necessary tools and implements for
operation; and last but by no means
least, the poor settler or "fortunate",
one must put in five years of valuable
time looking after the aforesaid orchard,
besides being supposed to kind of hang
around whenever he is honored with
visitors. That means he will have to
keep up some kind of an establishment
where they can quench their thirst if
any, and in some cases furnish an occasional hand-out just to keep in tune
and make a good fellow of himself.
Now all this is going to cost the fortunate settler, as the government seems
to think he will be, $6000 in time, $1000
for clearing the land, and about $500
for fencing and necessary tools and
implements���altogether $6600 not allowing anything for the land. Against
this the government kindly plows the
land at a cost of say $20, furnishes trees,
about $40 and once a year demonstrates
for the benefit of the "fortunate" one
and others who see fit to attend on such
occasions. I also forgot to mention
they will plant the trees v.hich probably
would cost $50. Altogether the government would counterbalance the for-
tuante settlers layout by going down
into the exchequer to the tune of less
than $200, which as you can plainly
see, is quite a sum. Even at that, it
would be money well invested providing
Kitsumkalum and Lakelse valleys can
produce the fortunate settlers who has
the time and can be made think he is
getting a cheap orchard.
��� I might also state the contract allows
either party to cancel the contract
within the limit of the five years. Should
the settler be the one to get cold feet,
he has the privilege of signing off by
giving the necessary notice and reimbursing the government for the money
laid out. In conclusion I might say: I
don't wish to hamper any good intentions on the part of the government
but I trust that before they start in to
institute these orchards they will just
post themselves a little more, then
perhaps they will read the contract
and interpret it justly, as has,

SCENIC BEAUTY
OF THE SKEENA
FAMOUS ARTIST  FINDS WORDS
ARE   INADEQUATE
Home Ruaaell Telle of Hia Five
Paintings of Skeena Scenery Now
On Exhibition at Bruasela, and of
His Thousand Mile Trip In Interior
G. Home Russell, one of the Lett
exploration party, cannot find words
fitting to express his admiration of the
scenery of the Skeena river. Language
is altogether inadequate and his impressions of it in all, he says, are to his
disappointment in that they do not
convey the combined lovliness and
grandeur as he sees it and feels it.
"I have travelled over three-quarters
of the world and I have never seen anything approaching such * scenery. Of
course you will see here and there lovely
spots in any country; but think of two
hundred miles of it without a break.
It is simply marvellous."
This is Mr. Russell's second visit to
Prince Rupert. He spent nearly six
weeks on the Skeena last fall, in a hurry
to complete five paintings for the international art exhibition at Brussels.
There was not time, he felt, to do the
subject justice, but the pictures arrived
at Brussels before the date expired for
their receipt and were favorably considered by the hanging committee.
While the artist has been in the wilds
a good part of this wonderful exhibition was destroyed by fire, but the
pictures of the lovely Skeena, which
have been highly commended by European art critics, were saved and are
���till on exhibition there.
Asked what points on the Skeena
are depicted in these paintings Mr.
Russell said this morning that he could
not tell as the places had no names.
Only one of the pictures had been given
a name, "and that," he smilingly added,
"prove to be geographically incorrect,"
"They were bits that struck me on
the way between Prince Rupert and the
head of navigation. I only got as far as
Hazelton that trip and was heavily
handicapped by the weather. It waa
simply awful. With better weather I
might have had better effects but even
the weather cannot mar the beauties
along both banks of the stream. Always
the soft atmosphere, the snow-capped
summits, the glistening glaciers and tbe
tumbling cascades, the bold crags, the
slides, the foliage���everything all the
way is awfully interesting to an artiste
tnd will be in time to come to the tourist.
"This trip of exploration we have just
finished has been interesting, but it has
been a hard one. Even in a land of such
gorgeous scenic effects it is difficult
to find just the typical scenery you want
to paint where there are no trails. You
find the most wonderful coloring among
the mountains, especially between Grand
Forks and Mount Robson and all about
the latter. But the trails to scenic points
have yet to be cut.
"I am pleased to hear some of the
Hays party expressed their appreciation
of the scenery on the Skeena for, as I
have said, there is none more wonderful
in all the world."
Mr. Russell leaves on the Prince Rupert
on his return to Montreal to rest up
after his trip of a thousand miles through
the partly pathless wilderness of Northern
British Columbia.
Hopes  High  For  Hazelton
Harry Brin of the Brin Furniture Co.,
has returned to Prince Rupert from
Hazelton where he has been looking after
the firm's interests arranging for a
confidently expected rush of business
in the spring. Mr. Brin reports that
business generally is pretty lively in
Hazelton but a big boom is certain to
take place there as soon as the winter
is over.

JACK UP JACK AT
SIX P. M. PUZZLE
HAPPENED   ON   SIXTH    STREET
YESTERDAY   EVENING
When J. G. Weston's Horse Got Its
Hind Leg Through the Plankway
And Took Some Helping Out By
The Boys.
Jack is a horse belonging to Messrs.
J. G. Weston and Sons, transfer agents,
Prince Rupert. Up till 6 p.m. yesterday,
or to be precise, 5:45 p.m., Jack pursued
the even tenor of his way unknown to
fame. By the sixth hour of yester-eve
as the poet puts it, the street which is
also Sixth rang with the name of Jack.
It was "Hi, Jack!" and "Ho, Jack!"
and "Come on Jack!" and "Whoa,
Jack!" and "What ho, Jack!" and
"Giddup Jack!", and other remarks addressed to Jack which would melt cold
type if not our readers hearts. For poor
Jack had punched a hole in the planking
on Sixth street with his hind leg and lay
there unresponsive alike to appeal or
exhortation. The problem was clearly
how to Jack up Jack.
Right rapidly as again the poet hath
it���the multitude assembled. Sixth
street resounded to the hum of a mighty
throng all interested in Jack and Jack's
hindleg. Stalls, gallery, and pit���
(McMordie's sewer pit) were packed with
spectators. Jack had a score of helpers.
One man sat on his head, another held
his tail, a third groped between the
planks to find the missing hind leg;,
and the rest got busy with axe and saw
spade, shovel, crow bar, and peevie, to
clear away the pile of excavation dirt
that hindered their efforts, and to extricate Jack's hind leg by sawing the
planks between which it was jammed.
A lady in the audience retired hurriedly because she thought they were
going to saw off Jack's leg, and a small
boy got in the way of a shovelful of
dirt hurriedly flung, which rather damped
his ardor. Jack himself breathed hard
but said nothing; and by and by they got
his leg out and urged him vociferously
to "Giddup!" Nothing doing. Jack was
firmly convinced that he had still
"one foot in the grave," so to speak,
and it wasn't till the lads had lent a
hand and positively hoisted him on to
his four pegs that he believed, shook
himself,   and   dumbly   endorsed    his
driver's hearty thanks to the boys for
helping him.
"Oh thats all right, we're giving this
free tonight!" said the boys jovially
as Jack got yoked up again none the worse
of his mishap.
BULKLEY ORE OUTLOOK
Expert  Cronin  Finds  Development
Of Minerals Is Very Rapid
James Cronin, the well known mining
expert, is back at the Prince Rupert Inn
from a trip of investigation he has been
making up the Skeena and particularly
in the Bulkley valley. He expresses his
surprise at the new discoveries of good
ore, saying they have now found ore at
fifteen hundred feet above sea level,
while up to this year none had been discovered much below timber line. There
were two places below Hazelton, he said,
where they have ore at fifteen hundred
and at twenty-five hundred feet above
sea level. These in his opinion carry
the surest indications of the chances
of discovering paying mines. He is very
much struck with the improved prospects of the Bulkley valley mineral region
since his previous tour of investigation.
MARRIED AT NINETY-SIX
Got  Gunner's  License  by  Mistake
But Exchanged It
Baltimore, Sept. 17.���William Boyd,
aged 96, went to Towson, a suburb,
to secure a license for his marriage
to Miss Ann Eliza Daniel, aged 55,
but in the rush was given a gunner's
license by mistake. He did not discover
the error until after he had reached
his home at Stevenson, ten miles frcm
Towson. As there were no more trains
to Towson, he had to walk there to
secure the proper document and then
walk back home. He was none the worse
for his long tramp, and was joined in
wedlock to Miss Daniel.
Enormous    Profits     on     Lotteries.
Washington, Sept. 19.���A profit of
nearly $9,000,000 accrued to the Italian Government last year through
lotteries run under the control af the
government. The total lottery receipts
were about $16,500,000, half of which
the state paid out in expenses and
winnings. The lottery business increased
more than $500,000 over the preceding
year, according to a report by Consul-
General Smith at Genoa.
