PLOT TO MURDER MANUEL
Was  to   Be   Assassinated   at  King
Edward's  Funeral.
London, May 23.���Scotland Yard
admits the frustration of a desperate
plot which was laid in Portugal by
disgruntled politicians, combined with
anarchists, to assassinate the young
kin? Manuel during his stay in England
to attend the funeral of King Edward.
The detectives discovered the presence
in London of some of the nobles and
.others implicated in the death of King
I Manuel's father and elder brother and
[by keeping them well under surveillance
aged to prove their connection with
I veil known anarchists who have been
| active both in Lisbon and Barcelona.
Working with extreme care the de-
I teethes obtained what is alleged to be
I substantial evidence against seven well-
I known   anarchists   of    complicity  in
a plot to assassinate the young king on
English soil, and these seven have been
I arrested.    This information has leaked
out, but no information as to the plot
itself or the nature  of  the  evidence
against the men arrested has yet transpired.   Needless to say that, with the
| discovery of the plot, an extra corps of
plain clothes men were detailed to guard
King Manuel every moment of his stay
in England.
who struck his fancy, he sent an epistle
of 47 pages of full size letter paper.
His compositions were not bad in the
the eyes of the law, but apparently
most unwelcome to the favored ones,
as a complaint was made to the police.
The offender was restrained by officers
on Saturday morning, and taken before
two doctors who examined him. They
pronounced him insane ancl he was then
sent to New Westminster.
Vancouver Defeats Spokane.
Vancouver, May 23.���In the baseball
games Saturday, Vancouver defeated
Spokane by seven to one and Tacoma
won in her contest with Seattle by
a score of three to two.
MAKES STRONG PROTEST
Against Regulation   Shutting  Out
British Artisans
Wholesale   Court-Martiala.
Manila,  May   23.���The   calling   of
1 no less than five American officers to
| submit to court martial proceedings has
"roused a strong  protest  against  the
' strid   discipline   of   General    Duvall,
who is in command, and petitions are
being largely siKnt,d for the recall of the
martinet.
Mcneil was insane.
Wrote Love Letters To Young Ladies.
Has   Gone   South.
John Alfred McNeil, a young man who
*'as a carpenter by trade, but somewhat
"' a semimen,.dist by profession, has
Rone to Now Westminster asylum for
11,1 ln��efinlte period. He went down on
J'"' < amosun yesterday with Constable
'y��f- McNeil's particular fad was
wrong love letters to all the young
ladies in
of,   T
town he could get the names
o one young lady in particular,
London, May 23.���The regulation
of the Dominion of Canada by which
admission is refused to British workmen
other than farm labourers, is raising
strong protest among local labor unions.
The object of the regulation is apparent,
and simply means that the industries
of Canada are well supplied with artisans and is in need of labor on the farm..
Also, it is conceded by the more thoughtful that this regulation is of merely a
temporary nature, in order that greater
transporation facilities may be at the
disposal of thelabor element in order to
supply Canada's pressing needs in that
regard as quickly as possible. Nevertheless there has been entered a strong protest on behalf of the artisans by some
of the metropolitan press, and the Star
may be said to voice the general sentiment. In this morning's edition, the
Star says:
"The real effect of the regulation being
enforced by the Canadian government
is that no British artisan can find a footing in that country without financial
assistance. It is most extraordinary
that a British colony, won by British
blood, protected by the British government and financed by British capitalists,
should be closed to British subjects."
The general feeling is high on thc subject; indigant protests are being passed
by British workmen everywhere, and thc
present result is a largely increased
emigration to Australia which, once
started, is likely to continue for some
time.

STEPHENS OUT, NADEN IN
THE FINAL COUNT OF BALLOTS
CHANGES RESULT
Returning Officer Cuthbert Makes
Official Announcement���Says It
Is the Only Declaration���Stephens
Will Probably Fight the Issue.
Is it Alderman Naden, or Alderman
Stephens? That is the question that is
interesting the politicians and a few
others to-day. M. M. Stephens was
bulletined as elected last Thursday evening. He got the victor's applause and
was mauled around by the boys in
their rough and happy appreciation,
but to-day Returning Officer Cuthbert
says that G. R. Naden is elected and
that M. M. Stephens is seven votes
behind him. That is the official result
of the count made by himself and clerk
on Saturday.
This morning returning officer Cuthbert posted the result of his final count
and declared Alderman Naden elected.
When asked by the Optimist as
to the validity of the count, Mr. Cuthbert pointed out the section of the Act
which says the count and the declaration must be made by the returning
office;. The bulletin posted Thu.sday
night was only the pieliminary count
by the deputies. They counted illegal
ballots and even tendered ballots, but
the official count by himself changed
the totals considerably. He claims he
was not bound to notify the candidates
to be present.
Mr. Stephens, when seen, said he
he had heard the announcement and had
decided upon his course of action, but
he had nothing to say for publication.
He intends to fight the issue.
The mayor and aldermen were sworn
in this morning with the exception of
Alderman Naden, who is out of the city
for a couple of weeks.

MURDERED HIS MOTHER.
James Gorham, While On A Drunken
Spree,   Shot   His   Mother.
Peterborough, Ont. May 21.���Jas.
Gorhman, a well known young man, shot
his mother this morning and she later
died in St. Joseph's hospital. Gorhman
was on a drunken spree, as he frequently
was, and the usual quarrel resulted when
he got home.   When sober, Gorhman is
a steady worker and a good son, but his
mother had a bad temper and several
times had the boy before the police magistrate. Gorhman was armed when the
police arrived and he resisted arrest for
a long time. He is somewhat of a scrapper
and a dangerous man when drunk.
He was finally taken, however, and
placed behind the bars. He will be
charged with murder.
SQUABBLE WITH BRITAIN
British Sealers   Taking Otter Dur-
Closed  Season
Men   Win   Strike.
New York, May 23.���The international paper strike has suddenly come
to a happy termination by the manufacturers' decision to accede to the strikers'
demands. All the factories affected
were to start up again this morning.
BOMBARDING BLUEFIELDS
Spain Sends a Cruiser Which Sinks
a Nicaraguan Gunboat.
Colon 23-It was learned here today by
cable dispatches that the minister of
war of Spain had sent an order by wireless for the Cruiser Venus to bombar-l
Bluefields, the Nicaraguan port on the
Atlantic. Spain is said to have taken this
action on, despite of a strong protest
against it from the United States government and international complications
are therefore likely to follow.
Bluefields 23-It is reported here from
Greytown that the Spanish cruiser Venus
this morning attacked and sunk the
Nicaraguan gunboat Ometepe off Gorda,
and that one hundred men of the gunboat
were drowned. This report is unofficial
but it is very generally credited.
Victoria 23���It is extremely probable
that international complications will
ensue upon the news that British sealers
have been taking otter within American
waters during the close season. The very
slight technicality rests upon the question
whether otter are included in the international agreement between the United
States, Japan, Russia and Great Britain
on the subject of pelagic hunting in the
Pacific.
Heavy Snow in Denver.
Denver 23-A11 the traffic in the city
and for some miles outside has been
totally disorganized by a blizzard and
heavy snow storms.
Two persons are reported to have perished in the storm, which is still raging
and is tying up incoming trains. No
trains have left here this morning owing
large drifts having formed along the rail
way   tracks.
Died in Hospital.
Nanaimo 23-Charles Ford, who was
brought to the hospital suffering from
injuries received while out hunting, died
this morning.

No Paper To-Morrow
......
Tuesday, May 24, is Victoria Day
and The Optimist will not publish
a paper. The people have grown
to look upon The Optimist as a
welcome evening visitor and a
lot of eager readers will be disappointed at having to skip a
day, but the boys who make the
Optimist want to go fishing.
The Optimist
It's Alive !
AERONAUTS INJURED.
One Falls Two Thousand and The
Other Two Hundred Feet.
Elmwood, Ills. May 23.���At an exhibition flight in a dirigible balloon
made here yesterday by Oscar Leroy,
the balloon started to collapseat a height
of two thousand feet, its fall being
accelerated as it neared the earth.
Leroy got off easily with a broken leg.
Madrid, May 23.���While flying his
aeroplane yesterday, Garner met with
a serious accident. One of the driving
bands snapped and the machine fell
from a height of two hundred feet.
Garner was seriously injured but will
recover.
Bleriot's Feat Duplicated.
Dover, May 23,���Count de Lesseps
crossed the English Channel yesterday
in an aeroplane, thus duplicating the
feat of Bleriot. The ascent was made
from the same place as Bleriot at Calais,
but de Lesseps had more favourable
weather than his predecessor.
Engineers Knowbel and Grant of the
G. N. R. went up to Stewart Saturday
night to take charge of the survey work
for the new railway.
It will be learned with general regret
that William Salvus was killed by a
blast at Salvus' camp, mile 148, on Saturday night. Word was received in the
city about noon yesterday, although
meager details accompanied it. Another
man,, or men, were also injured. The
remains of the dead man will arrive on
the steamer Omineca to-day, as also
will the injured men. The boat was on
her way down and was held at Kitselas
until the party from the camp arrived.
William Salvus was a brother of P. J.
Salvus, who had the contract for that
section where the accident occurred.
He was a young fellow, being only
about 30 years ol age, and was well
known in the city. He was a fine young
man and his many friends will deeply
regret to hear of his tragic death.
The deceased came here from Spokane
when his brother took the contract and
he had the position of time-keeper,
although all last winter he was in full
charge of the camp during his brother's
absence.
LOCAL,
A couple of young fellows were successful in capturing a good sized Alaska
eagle tfeross the harbour yesterday.
They shot it in the wing and brought it
home to have it stuffed.
A great many young people and some
who were not so young took advantage
of the beautiful weather yesterday,
and spent the day and evening on the
water. Every canoe, skiff and motor
boat was out and many happy parties
had a pleasant day among the islands
and up the river.
It has been asked several times why
the officers of the canoe club do not get
busy and stir up a little enthusiasm
A lot of ideal weather has already been
lost and further delay in getting the members together would be regrettable.
A lot of interest is being taken in boating and the club could bemade to flourish.

AS   OTHERjS   SEE   US
An   Impreaaion   of   the   Northern   Me-
tropolia.
"Opportunities" a new magazine publication which is issued in Vancouver,
has in its last issue the following to say
of Prince Rupert, the northern metropolis.
There are two things that progress
steadily at Prince Rupert. They are
railroad construction and land values.
If any resident is asked the reason for
this, the reply is simply that the railroad is being built and the town is now
on a solid business basis. Both of which
are absolutely correct. The railroad IS
being pushed through the broad Dominion into the western terminus and
and the town IS founded on solid business and the values are not inflated.
And those two things form the topic of
conversation at street corners and in
hotels and other public places. Not
lhat there is nothing else to talk about
but they are at present of paramount
importance.
The railway is entering the new city
from the south, resting for a moment
at the foot of Mount Oldfield, whose
ramparts form the guard for the city on
the south-eastern shore, where it sweeps
a snow-crowned summit into the northern sky and slopes majestically into the
sea. All through that portion ofthe
country the roadbed is rock-ballasted
and ready for the steel rails that wlli
carry the great mountain engines from
far to the east through hills and over
plains. Just now there is one locomotive
at the town, and it was taken up from
Vancouver on a scow not long ago,
but it will soon be lost in the multitude
that will help shape the destiny of Prince
Rupert, when, very shortly, trains are
running in from the East and opening
a new era of railway development in
Canada.
British Columbia has many new towns.
This must be one of the first things to
strike the newcomer in our great western province. And one can easily get an
opinion, or even a description of any of
those towns from the man on the street
in Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster, Nelson or any of the larger centres,
whether the narrator has ever been in
the city or not. But one must go to
Prince Rupert to notice how heartily
she is extending her hand in welcome to
the future, and making tlie bid for prog
ress that she is and has always. There
are many stories concerning her abroad
upon the ocean of common thought, but
few tire headed for the right port, as the
city itself is. One has a good deal of
respect for Prince Rupert after having had
a look at it, and the longer one stays
there the longer one thinks of it. The
opportunities and possibilities are obvious.
For one thing it has a splendid harbor.
Behind and beside it rise tier upon tier
of mountains whose eternal snow mingles
with the clouds. In front, islands that
effectually shut out the heavy ocean
rollers and keep the north Pacific from
creating an unruly time in the dockage
room or the stream, as that dark mass
of water would delight in doing.
A ship may drop anchor in twenty
fathoms   or come along side tha dock
as safely as she might in Sydney or Rio
de Janiero.    She may sail in between \
huge, solemn, pine covered mountains
to the new city, and feel that here is a |
port that is good, not only in a storm, but
that has before it a harbor in the peaceful pursuits of commerce.      There is
plenty of water, plenty of room and every
opportunity to establish docks. Already
the  railway  and steamship companies
recognize  this,  and  already  there  are I
steamers from a good many points on
thc American continent. What has been
done in the past is nothing compared!
with the development in the next five I
years.
Some of those Titans, or Jove, of
gigantic memory should have taken one
of the mountains around thc City and
rolled it over the main streets. Then
those hills, right in the townsite, would
not now he in such evidence. Failing this
delicate attention from the gods, the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, itself
somethit,,; of a worker in thunderbolts,
is going to cut down the hills���to hew
its tortuous way through the city,
40 or 80 feet of solid rock, and leave in its
path a series of level roads that will make
the city much better, and incidentally
be a monument to the enterprise and
ability of the railway officials. Just
at present, the front, or main street,
runs up from the wharf until it becomes
a little too steep for comfort, when it
calmly branches off and goes around the
hill that stays its peaceful progress.. The
The Company will not remove that hill���
at least not for a time. But it will [and
is actually working upon it] construct
a new main street, which shall be more
convenient, and upon which only sores
and business blocks of a certain standard
are being erected. There are several
fine structures going up now, and the
. plans for others are filed.
A striking thing about Prince Rupert
is the fact that there is not a great deal
of earth anywhere around it. All is
rock, rock, rock. And above the granite
is a layer of muskeg, from 18 inches to
'5 feet in depth. Therefore, as the pedestrian in the northern metropolis does
not like wearing out shoe-leather on sharp
rock any more than the rest, over eight
miles of plank roadway, mounted on piles
has been constructed since a year ago.
All the stores on the main street are situated similarly and the houses are as
well, unless they happen to be on a hilltop near the roadway. And, speaking of
houses, there are a great many new roofs
to be seen in Prince Rupert these days.,
evidence unmistakable of the progress in
building in the new city. But this seeking favorable spots gives the place a
rathered scattered appearance, for many
of the places are on the tops of hills, many
more are in snug little hollows, and others again are en the sides of the hills
themselves.
Prince Rupert's weather has been the
subject of much adverse comment in the
past year. Why this should be is not
very clear. Possibly jealous rivals, old
and new, have expended energy in gathering and circulating such reports. Possibly
the rumors started and grew, and spread,
no one knows how or why. But, be that
as it may, Prince Rupert has a very good
climate. The rainfall is heavy. No attempt is made to deny that. But there
is no heavy winter weather, owing to
some peculiarity in geographical situation. And Vancouver and Victoria both
have a very fair share of rain, yet they
seem to be assuming large proportions. So Prince Rupert, with not a great
deal more than either, is not handicapped
in this way. The air in the northern port
is very bracing, and there are no extremes
of heat and cold, as often mar a city. A
good spring and summer, without a cold
winter, should not count - climatically
against the city's chances of growing, and
they are swept aside by the rush of improvement and development in the north
these days. No one pays any attention to
such rumors. Prince Rupert has magnificent possibilities, and when, in the history of Canada, did people every worry
about anything else?
Yes, behind the baby port of the Dominion, are millions of acres of fertile
country and millions of prosperous people who are smiling their approval and
sending their best of brawn and brain to
the city. They wait for that future which
the place is assured of, confident that it
must come with the evolution of events,
and they are optimistic, full of faith, and
able to see real worth and value it accordingly.   And they are not mistaken.

'No I ain't,' replied the farmer's

'From the direction of the chicken

INDIANS THROWN OUT.
Local   Tradesmen    May    Suffer
Decision of Fishery Dispute.
By
Col. John McCook, of the law firm of
Messrs. Alexander & Green, New York;
Mr. Hugo Blumenthal, of Hallgarten
& Co., bankers, New York; and Mr. John
P. McGinnis, of Butte.
Some of the tradesmen of Prince Rupert are liable to lose considerable money
by the decision rendered by the provincial government in the matter of the
fishing licenses on the Skeena and Naas
rivers and Rivers Inlet, as by it seven
hundred fishermen, the majority Indians, are thrown out of employment
this season. As is customary these men
obtained credit to carry them through
the winter, the debts to be met from
the work of the summer months.
This is the result of an agitation started by a number of Skeena fishermen
headed by Jim Fleuin, known as "Slim
Jim" and Robert Nelson. Representations were made to the Provincial Department of Fisheries that the fishermen
signing had secured federal licenses
and they demanded that provincial
licenses be issued to them.. Licenses
were not refused to them directly,
but the department held that they cou.d
only be issued with the proviso that the
licensee should not sell his catch, or
any part of it, directly or indirectly,
to the canneries of the district.
The provincial department has already announced that it will only issue licenses to fish in connection with
the operating licenses granted to canneries. The determination on the part
of the government was reached in order that the boat rating allowed the
various northern canneries might not
be jeopardized. The ratings would be
nullified in their effect were fishing
licenses to be issued indiscriminately
as it would then be possible for canneries operating to the limit of their
ratings to secure additional fish from
fishermen not attached to any cannery.
Only the total number of boats���some
850���allotted to the canneries on the
Skeena river will be permitted to fish.
Men attempting to operate boats under federal licenses and in defiance
of the provincial regulations will be
placed under arrest. This ultimatum
has been issued by the Provincial Government.
The twelve canneries operating in
the district contracted for about twelve
hundred crews, and their limit being
cut down to eight hundred and fifty
will throw out of employment about
Beven hundred men. This will affect the
Indians more particularly, as the Japs
had already made their contracts. If
the decision had been made last fall it
would have been the Japs and not the
native Indians who would have been
thrown out. The tradesmen will suffer
too as thousands of dollars had been
advanced to these Indians. The decision may lead to further trouble this
season as the canneries must have
Indian women to work in the canning,
and there is talk of all the Indians moving
to another district.
Dunsmuir Collieries Bonds.
A London cable states that the underwriters have been compelled to take 95
per cent of the Dunsmuir Collieries issue
of 2,054,800 pounds sterling five per
cent, mortgage bonds. The market
there seems unfavorable for new issues.

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
THE germ of both Life and
Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter--
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the
Sun life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

AS   OTHERjS   SEE   US
An   Impre����ion   of   the   Northern   Metropolis.
"Opportunities" a new magazine publication which is issued in Vancouver,
has in its last issue the following to say
of Prince Rupert, the northern metropolis.
There are two things that progress
steadily at Prince Rupert. They are
railroad construction and land values.
If any resident is asked the reason for
this, the reply is simply that the railroad is being built and the town is now
on a solid business basis. Both of which
are absolutely correct. The railroad IS
being pushed through the broad Dominion into the western terminus and
and the town IS founded on solid business and the values are not inflated.
And those two things form the topic of
conversation at street corners and in
hotels and other public places. Not
that there is nothing else to talk about
but they are at present of paramount
importance.
The railway is entering the new city
from the south, resting for a moment
at the foot of Mount Oldfield, whose
ramparts form the guard for the city on
the south-eastern shore, where it sweeps
a snow-crowned summit into the northern sky and slopes majestically into the
sea. All through that portion ofthe
country the roadbed is rock-ballasted
and ready for the steel rails that wlli
carry the great mountain engines from
far to the east through hills and over
plains. Just now there is one locomotive
at the town, and it was taken up from
Vancouver on a scow not long ago,
but it will soon be lost in the multitude
that will help shape the destiny of Prince
Rupert, when, very shortly, trains are
running in from the East and opening
a new era of railway development in
Canada.
British Columbia has many new towns.
This must be one of the first things to
strike the newcomer in our great western province. And one can easily get an
opinion, or even a description of any of
those towns from the man on the street
in Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster, Nelson or any of the larger centres,
whether the narrator has ever been in
the city or not. But one must go to
Prince Rupert to notice how heartily
she is extending her hand in welcome to
the future, and making tite bid for prog
ress that she is and has always. There
are many stories concerning her abroad
upon the ocean of common thought, but
few are headed for the right port, as the
city itself is. One has a good deal of
respect for Prince Rupert after having had
a look at it, and the longer one stays
there the longer one thinks of it. The
opportunities and possibilities are obvious.
For one thing it has a splendid harbor.
Behind and beside il rise tier upon tier
of mountains wlio.se eternal snow mingles
with the clouds. In front, islands that
effectually shut out the heavy ocean
rollers antl keep the nortli Pacific from
creating an unruly time in the dockage
room or the stream, as that tlark mass
of water would delight in doing.
A ship may drop anchor in twenty
fathoms or come along side thi' dock
as safely as she might in Sydney or Rio
de Janiero. She may sail in between
huge, solemn, pine covered mountains
to the new city, and feel that here is a
port that is good, not only in a storm, but
that has before it a harbor in the peaceful pursuits of commerce. There is
plenty of water, plenty of room and every
opportunity to establish docks. Already
the railway and steamship companies
recognize this, and already there are
steamers from a good many points on
the American continent. What has been |
done in the past is nothing compared
with the development in the next five
years.
Some of those Titans, or Jove, of j
gigantic memory should have taken one
of the mountains around the City and |
rolled it over the main streets. Then
those hills, right in the townsite, would
not now be in such evidence. Failing this
delicate attention from the gods, the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, itself
something of a worker in thunderbolts,
is going to cut down the hills���to hew
its tortuous way through the city,
40 or 80 feet Of solid rock, and leave in its
path a series of level roads that will make
the city much better, and incidentally
be a monument to the enterprise and
ability of the railway officials. Just
at present, the front, or main street,
runs up from the wharf until it becomes
a little too steep for comfort, when it
calmly branches off and goes around the
hill that stays its peaceful progress.. The
The Company will not remove that hill���
at least not for a time. But it will [and
is actually working upon it] construct
a new main street, which shall be more
convenient, and upon which only sores
and business blocks of a certain standard
are being erected. There are several
fine structures going up now, and the
. plans for others are filed.
A striking thing about Prince Rupert
is the fact that there is not a great deal
of earth anywhere around it. All is
rock, rock, rock. And above the granite
is a layer of muskeg, from 18 inches to
15 feet in depth. Therefore, as the pedestrian in the northern metropolis does
not like wearing out shoe-leather on sharp
rock any more than the rest, over eight
miles of plank roadway, mounted on piles
has been constructed since a year ago.
All the stores on the main street are situated similarly and the houses are as
well, unless they happen to be on a hilltop near the roadway. And, speaking of
houses, there are a great many new roofs
to be seen in Prince Rupert these days.,
evidence unmistakable of the progress in
building in the new city. But this seeking favorable spots gives the place a
rathered scattered appearance, for many
of the places are on the tops of hills, many
more are in snug little hollows, and others again are on the sides of the hills
themselves.
Prince Rupert's weather has been the
subject of much adverse comment in the
past year. Why this should be is not
very clear. Possibly jealous rivals, old
and new, have expended energy in gathering and circulating such reports. Possibly
the rumors started and grew, and spread,
no one knows how or why. But, be that
as it may, Prince Rupert has a very good
climate. The rainfall is heavy. No attempt is made to deny that. But there
is no heavy winter weather, owing to
some peculiarity in geographical situation. And Vancouver and Victoria both
have a very fair share of rain, yet they
seem to be assuming large proportions. So Prince Rupert, with not a great
deal more than either, is not handicapped
in this way. The air in the northern port
is very bracing, and there are no extremes
of heat and cold, as often mar a city. A
good spring and summer, without a cold
winter, should not count .climatically
against the city's chances of growing, and
they are swept aside by the rush of improvement and development in the north
these days. No one pays any attention to
such rumors. Prince Rupert has magnificent possibilities, and when, in the history of Canada, did people every worry
about anything else?
Yes, behind the baby port of the Dominion, are millions of acres of fertile
country and millions of prosperous people who are smiling their approval and
sending their best of brawn and brain to
the city. They wait for that future which
the place is assured of, confident that it
must come with the evolution of events,
and they are optimistic, full of faith, and
able to see real worth and value it accordingly.   And they are not mistaken.

INDIANS THROWN OUT.
Local   Tradesmen    May   Suffer   By
Decision of Fishery Dispute.
Col. John McCook, of the law firm of
Messrs. Alexander & Green, New York;
Mr. Hugo Blumenthal, of Hallgarten
& Co., bankers, New York; and Mr. John
P. McGinnis, of Butte.
Some of the tradesmen of Prince Rupert are liable to lose considerable money
by the decision rendered by the provincial government in the matter of the
fishing licenses on the Skeena and Naas
rivers and Rivers Inlet, as by it seven
hundred fishermen, the majority Indians, are thrown out of employment
this season. As is customary these men
obtained credit to carry them through
the winter, the debts to be met from
the work of the summer months.
This is the result of an agitation started by a number of Skeena fishermen
headed by Jim Fleuin, known as "Slim
Jim" and Robert Nelson. Representations were made to the Provincial Department of Fisheries that the fishermen
signing had secured federal licenses
and they demanded that provincial
licenses be issued to them.. Licenses
were not refused to them directly,
but the department held that they cou.d
only be issued with the proviso that the
licensee should not sell his catch, or
any part of it, directly or indirectly,
to the canneries of the district.
The provincial department has already announced that it will only issue licenses to fish in connection with
the operating licenses granted to canneries. The determination on the part
of the government was reached in order that the boat rating allowed the
various northern canneries might not
be jeopardized. The ratings would be
nullified in their effect were fishing
licenses to be issued indiscriminately
as it would then be possible for canneries operating to the limit of their
ratings to secure additional fish from
fishermen not attached to any cannery.
Only the total number of boats���some
850���allotted to the canneries on the
Skeena river will be permitted to fish.
Men attempting to operate boats under federal licenses and in defiance
of the provincial regulations will be
placed under arrest. This ultimatum
has been issued by the Provincial Government. '
The twelve canneries operating in
the district contracted for about twelve
hundred crews, and their limit being
cut down to eight hundred and fifty
will throw out of employment about
seven hundred men. This will affect the
Indians more particularly, as the Japs
had already made their contracts. If
the decision had been made last fall it
would have been the Japs and not the
native Indians who would have been
thrown out. The tradesmen will suffer
too as thousands of dollars had been
advanced to these Indians. The decision may lead to further trouble this
season as the canneries must have
Indian women to work in the cznning,
and there is talk of all the Indians moving
to another district.
Dunsmuir Collieries Bonds.
A London cable states that the under-
writers have been compelled to take 95,
per cent of the Dunsmuir Collieries issue
of 2,054,800 pounds sterling five per
cent, mortgage bonds. The market
there seems unfavorable for new issues.

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
THE germ o�� both Life and
Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter-
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

WORK FOR THE POLICE.
If any man breaths a sigh of relief upon the announcement of the new council
taking up business, it will be chief Wynn of the Provincial Police. He is doubtless
sick of a thankless job in which he has not the support from the Department at
his back, and is constantly beseiged by public criticism in front. The police commission cannot take up the appointment and organization of the police force too
quickly. The city is sadly in need of a strong policy and a strong arm to clean out
the degenerates who make free to defy the law and who disturb the peace.
Last Friday, the British Empire mourned its beloved sovereign, King Edward
the Peacemaker. The day was one of world wide mourning���business was suspended,
traffic ceased, the very ships on the sea lay idle a space to revere the memory of the
dead king. In Prince Rupert all loyal British subjects and the alien citizens within
joined in the solemnity and respect of the occasion. Yet the blind pigs were open
and drunks reeled out by the dozen. It was a sight of abhorrence to decent people���
a sight common enough and shocking enough on ordinary days, but one to stir up
resentment on a day of national mourning.
The city will look to the new police commission to make this cleaning up job
their first duty. Mayor Stork, the chairman, has promised to do the job in 24
hours. It was a bold statement and he should have the assistance of every respectable citizen to make it good. A decent respect of the law is necessary for good government and there are a lot of people here who should be taught that respect or made to
move on.
OFF THE CHOPPING BLOCK.
"We must take exception to the statement that Mr. Morrow is a decidedly
brainy man, for if he were, he would never have announced the increase in the prices
of meat on the very eve of an election. He would, on the contrary, have deferred
that action until the day following the contest."���Empire,
| It is meat that the editorial butcher should dispute the statement of anyone
being brainy in Prince Rupert. If Morrow has a monopoly in purveying dressed
meats then someone else should be entitled to the monopoly of all the gray-matter
for the city.
Taking another view of it���Supposing the increase in the price of meat had been
made two days after the election instead of two days Morel Morrow would then
have been a political trickster and a coward. This is the editorial stiletto that had
a point on each end.
STOVES FOR  THE. WEST.
Clare  Bros,   of   Preston   Have  Perfected New Design For Soft Coal.
Clare ' Bros., of Preston, Ontario,
have perfected a new design in the line
of stoves which will minimize the inconvenience and discomforts of burning
soft coal. They have now a stove ready
for the western market that promises to
do away with all the soot that gathers
on the inside of the stove and pipes and
keep it as clean as though hard coal was
burned Clare Bros., have been working on this design for a long time in
order to meet the requirements of the
west. Their efforts have been awarded
with success.
Clare Brothers have an immense
western business and have large warehouses in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary
and Vancouver, and they are negotiating
with a real estate firm here for property
on which to erect a warehouse.    The
��� firm realizes that Prince Rupert is the
; real gateway to the north, and also the
natural distributing point for a consider-
1 able distance to the east along the G. T.
P., and they do not intend to let this
I trade go by default.
A stove warehouse would be welcomed
in Prince Rupert and especially one that
that can put on the market a stove that
will make the burning of soft coal superior
to hard coal.
BELL   INN   WAS   SOLD.
Will Be A Grill  Room For A New
Forty^ Roomed   Hotel.
The Bell inn was sold out last week
to a Seattle man, and Mr. Bell served
his last man on Saturday night. Mr.
Bert, the new owner will close the place
for a few days and make some alterations,
and will then reopen it as a grill room.
It is Mr. Bert's intention to erect a
forty roomed hotel on the property at
the corner of Sixth street and Fraser
street. He will begin operations as
soon as possible, and in the meantime
he will cater to the public in the premises
he has just acquired. Mr. Bert has
recently come from Seattle where he
was connected with a hotel. He is an
experienced hotel man having been
associated with the Hotel Ritz in London and the Grand Hotel in Rome.
The Bell inn was opened last fall by
Mr. Bell and during the short time he
has been in the city he has worked up
a splendid trade. His many patrons
and friends will regret that he is giving
up the business. He and Mrs. Bell intend going to Vancouver for a while,
but will return to Prince Rupert again
in the near future.

contract has to be finished inside of

LATEST FROM IDITAROD.
Thousands of People Likely to Rush
By this Route.
The latest reports from the Iditarod
country are so favorable from Fairbanks
that the transportation companies plan
handling thousands of people from the
outside says a late dispatch from Dawson.
This route expects a heavy movement to
come this way before the mouth of the
Yukon is open. Supt. W. Fairbanks
of the Northern Navigation Company,
says that he will operate a bigger fleet
than last year, ancl has a number of
steamers in reserve available.
Frank M. Davis, of the Seattle
Cracker company, arrived on the Humboldt says the Juneau Record. Mr. Davis
lately came out of Fairbanks and told
what the people of the interior think
of the new strike in the Iditarod country.
E. W. Griffin, head of a large mercantile
company that operates in Fairbanks and
Chena, according to Mr. Davis, sent a
special representative to the new country
a short time ago to make investigations.of
the reported strike. The representative
remained on the ground sixty days close-
lyobserving the work and at the end of
that time sent a message to his employer saying that the Iditarod is bound to
become the greatest camp that was
ever struck in the interior of Alaska
and will probably equal Dawson. He
advised Mr. Griffin to ship building
material and a general stock immediately.
'Such report is only one of the many
which poured into Fairbanks from conservative men.'The clean-up at Fairbanks
will probably equal that of last year,
although the rush for the Iditarod
threatens to leave Fairbanks short of
labor this summer.'
Stewart's American Rival.
The plat of the Portland townsite on
the American side of the Canal is completed now by the engineers, Messrs. Ry us
and Barber, and contains over nine hundred lots. Lumber is all that is needed
to make things look like a booming camp.
���Ketchikan Miner.
Sale of Jap Steamers.
The government realized the sum of
$26,530 from the sale of the equipment
and spoils of Japanese seal poachers
taken April 8 last, at Unalaska. The
Kinsel Maru and equipment was sold
for $4,600 and the Sakai Maru brought
$150. Fred Shroder bought both. Six
hundred and sixty seal skins were sold
to Ike Rosenberg for $38.00 each.

escape. But, Mr. McMaster of the G. T.
P., saw the accident and he threw them
n   line,   and   after   considerable   diffi
culty drew them on board.     A couple
briny deep and had a small chance of  of small boats  also went out to  the
resuce. The boys were well soaked
and badly scared, but nothing more
serious resulted.
Among those who were out yesterday
enjoying the summer weather were
Thomas Dunn and party and Mayor j
Stork and party. Each had their own
motor boat, although they went together on a little picnic. Everything
went lovely until they were approaching Shawatlans. Mr. Dunn's boat was
in the lead and that gentleman, always
doing something for the ladies and children, stood on the stem of his launch
and endeavoureed to throw an orange
to Mrs. Stork. Thomas, however, lost
his balance and fell into the chilly waters,
with his Sunday clothes on too. He just
came up in time to make a leap for the
new mayor's craft as she chuck-chucked
past. He caught it and pulled himself
aboard, apparently none the worse for
the wetting, except that his enthusiasm
was somewhat cooled, and much of the
days pleasure was spoiled.
POLICE    COURT.
An unfortunate, who had imbibed
too freely spent a quiet day as a guest of
the government yesterday. He was
just drunk, and apparently had no other
place to sleep.
John Ninok was accompanied to the
police station by one of the constables
about midnight Saturday, and he spent
the Sabbath in the shade of the government building. His offence was having
a loaded revolver in his possession,
and he appeared before the magistrate
for a hearing this morning.
C. H. Preston, the old man who made
such a disturbance at Mr. Kerr's home
on Thursday night, was charged with
being drunk and disorderly. After hearing the evidence, Magistrate McMullen
sent him to New Westminster for two
months. He was taken down on the
Camosun Sunday morning by Constable
Taylor and his loss will be a good thing
for the city.
