The long-expected, publication party
that has been making a trip along the
line of the Grand Trunk Pacific, arrived
here yesterday on the steamer Hazelton,
having been ninety one days on the
route. The leader of the party when
they arrived was R. C. W. Lett, colonization agent of the Grand Trunk Pacific:
G. Home Russell, the well known artist whose pictures of Mount Robson
and the Skeena river are now on ex-
hitbition at Brussels; J. W. Swan,
official photographer of the Grand Trunk
railway, and Frederick A. A. Talbot,
special correspondent of the World's
Work of London, dispatched to this
country to investigate the openings for
British financial, industrial and agricultural activity in British North I
America, also contributing articles of
Canadian import to several other English
papers.
The party left Toronto on June 17th,
then being under the charge of Harry
R. Charlton, general advertising manager
of the Grand Trunk Pacific, and of the
party at that time, in addition to the
names given, was H. D. Lowry, Washington correspondent of the New York
Evening Post. They left the party at
Tete Jaune Cache and returned to
Montreal.
Mr. Talbot says the journey has been
most uneventful and was enjoyable all
the way through. They started out with
thirty pack animals from Edmonton
on June 23rd, and reached Wolfe Creek,
which is one hundred and twenty-six
miles west of Edmonton and the end of
steel, on June 27th. They followed the
trail of the surveyed line on to Fiddle
creek, where they made the first long
stop. Here Mr. Lett led the party into
the wilds to investigate the possibilities
of the Hot Springs as a popular resort
for tourists. He was favorably impressed
and many fine photgraphs were made and
a number of sketches  and  paintings.
The next long stop was at the foot of
Mount Robson, one of the objects of
the trip being to get a number of good
Photographs of this already famous
region. Ten days were profitably spent
here, Mr. Lett, with the aid of the pack's, cutting trail through the heavy underbrush into the heart of the mounain
and resting his party after their toilsome journey on the banks of a charming
lake called Lake Helena. ;
This spot Mr. Talbot declares to be
one of the most beautiful of all he has
seen in his travels on this continent and
abroad. Many pictures were made of
lw sylvan features and the gorgeous
scenery surrounding it. Photographs
were also made during the party's stay
nere of the immense glacier, the waters
rom which flow into the north fork of
tne Fraser river.

New York, .Sept. 20.���Friends of
May Yohe, once a favorite muscical
comedy star and former wife of Lord
Francis Hope, sympathising with her
in her pitiable plight, have arranged
to have her brought back from San
Francisco, where she was stricken
with paralysis recently, and placed in
a sanitarium on the outskirts of this
city.
Of all the favorites who once blossomed on Broadway and helped to make
the wine business a profitable industry, none has had more meteoric career than this fickle, giddy, high-
strung songbird. Born in a little town
in Pennsylvania, outside of Philadelphia, she graduated from a church
choir to the footlights and from, the
latter to mistress-ship of one of the
oldest castles in England. Lord Francis Hope met her when she was singing on Broadway and made her his
wife in 1893, presenting her at the
time with the famous Hope diamond,
one of the most precious stones in the
world.
Seven years of prosaic, dignified
life of an English lads/ palled on her
and she ran away with Major Putman
Bradley Strong, son of a former mayor
of New York and an officer in the
regular army. Subsequently, when
Lord Hope secured his divorce from
the singer, Strong married her, only
to desert her when their money was
all gone.
Her position ever since has been pathetic. With her voice and her beauty
impaired by hardship and dissipation
managers who once considered her an
acquisition to their forces closed the
door in her face. Pressed for the com-
menest necessities of life recently, she
procured an engagement in a low music
hall in Frisco, where she was stricken
with  paralysis  last week.
Baseball Scores Yesterday
Vancouver, Sept. 20.���(Special)���The
two league games played yesterday
resulted as follows:
Vancouver 6, Tacoma 3.
Seattle five, Spokane four.
The s.s. "Bannockburn" quite the
newest and most graceful freighter that
has yet called at Prince Rupert reached
the post yesterday with a cargo of 6400
tons of steel rails and accessories for the
G. T. P. construction work.
The Bannockburn made the passage
from Sidney, C. B. in the record time of
64 days in spite of encountering very
heavy weather on this side the Horn.
Big seas deluged the steamer fore and aft
at times, but she ploughed her way
steadily through all, weathers. Trinidad and Montevideo were touched at
on the voyage.
Captain Dent .of the Bannockburn is
geniality and hospitality itself. He is
fond of his boat which is absolutely the
latest thing in ocean freighters the last
boat launched on the Clyde and equipped
throughout with every modern appliance.
The Bannockburn is electric lit throughout, and Captain Dent is much interested
in Prince Rupert's struggles with the
city lighting problem.
This is the steamer's second trip since
her launching, and captain and officers
are alike pleased with her achievements.
She steams a steady twelve knots.
"Do you know" said the captain
smilingly"that though we are a cargo
boat and full loaded, we beat the Princess
Beatrice coming up to Rupert? We
passed her between Alert Bay and
Haddington Island lying anchored
because of the fog. But fog or no, the
Bannockburn went on and came in to
Prince Rupert in time to berth before
the  Princess Beatrice appeared.
"I am agreeably surprised" went on
Captain Dent "at the excellent docking
facilities you have at Prince Rupert.
Of course I have not been over the city
yet, but so far I am much impressed by
what I have seen. The harbour is wonderful. From a ship captain's point of view
I should say it would be pretty well
perfect if the approach to it were commanded by fog horn stations at Holland
Rocks and on the Lawyers. I understand that Sir Wilfrid Laurier has promised that the matter of lighting and
signalling in these waters is to be specially
attended to in view of the opening of
Prince Rupert as a seaport."
(Special to the Optimist)
Brieg, Switzerland, Sept. 20.���Although the authorities forbade Aviators Chevaz and Weymann making a
flight over the Alps today, owing to the
adverse state of the weather, they are
to start their flight as soon as the weather
permits.
Chevaz reached a height of seven
thousand feet yesterday, and headed for
the Simplon Pass before he was forced
to dsecend because of the heavy gale.
Weymann's machine was badly damaged.

Vancouver, .Sept. 17.���The Dominion
government has given orders for the
construction of a government telegraph
line between Prince Rupert and Stewart.
Gangs of men are already in the field,
clearing the trail for the linemen to
follow, and if present plans are carried
out the line will be completed and ready
for use before the end of the year.
Superintendent Phelan shortly goes north
to direct the active stringing of the wire.
The building of the new section will
be from both ends. One gang is now
working southwards from the Portland
Canal District, and another has started
from Prince Rupert. The route which
will be followed is along the Kitsumkalum and the Naas to Alice Arm and
on north to the new mining centre. The
centre will pass M. K. Rodger's mine
at Goose Bay.
Work will be helped by the trail
which the provincial government is
now constructing into the Kitsumkalum.
PRINCE   RUPERT   HOSPITAL
List of Applicants For Position  of
Matron
The following were the applicants
for the position of matron of the, new
general hospital, Prince Rupert:- Miss
Kate McTavish, Atlin; Miss Emmie
Johnson, Vancouver; Miss Eva E. Allan,
Victoria; Miss A. Helen Adam, Victoria;
Miss E. Bonnell,' New York; and Miss
Margaret A.   Christie,  Prince  Rupert.
The appointment was balloted for
at the Board of Trade meeting yesterday
and Miss Kate McTavish was appointed
matron.
Dr. A. H. Wallace, of the Hazelton
hospital, is paying a visit to Prince
Rupert, and speaks very enthusiastically of the institution with which he ia
connected, the conversation being brought
about by remarks upon the beauty of
the location made by Mr. Lett, colonization agent for the Grand Trunk Pacific.
"It is certainly a beautiful location,"
said Dr. Wallace, "and in addition to
that is the finest and best equipped
hospital north outside of Vancouver.
The famous Rocke de Boule mountain
forms a background and in front the
ground is gently sloping. It stands in
its own grounds, some three hundred and
twenty acres in extent, of which about
twenty acres have been cleared and are
under cultivation. So that our patients
have the benefit of fresh meat, milk,
eggs, vegetables and fruit, which is a
great aid to their recovery.
"Also we have gas and a sewerage and
water system on the most modern lines,
and indeed the whole of the furnishing
and the surgical and other equipment
is strictly up to date.
"Dr. H. C. Wrinch is the superintendent and under his charge the hospital
has grown to be a very popular institution. We take care of the Indians
but not of the railway men. The contractors have their own hospital ar-
arrangements. But we take patients
from all over the northern country as
far as Francis lake, and up the telegraph
line to Ninth Cabin, Which is two hundred and fifty miles north. We have a
staff of five nurses ans during the past
summer they have been fully occupied.
In July we had twenty-two patients
and we now have twenty, which is about
the average."
Dr. Wallace leaves on the Prince
Rupert tomorrow for Vancouver and will
return in about three weeks.
Salvation Army
Major and Mrs. Morris, Provincial
Commander for the Pacific province,

Finds That Fishery Resources Alone

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

Vancouver, .Sept. 20.���(Special)���The
two league games played yesterday
resulted as follows:
Vancouver 6, Tacoma 8.
Seattle five, Spokane four.
The s.s. "Bannockburn" quite the
newest and most graceful freighter that
has yet called at Prince Rupert reached
the post yesterday with a cargo of 6400
tons of steel rails and accessories for the
G. T. P. construction work.
The Bannockburn made the passage
from Sidney, C. B. in the record time of
64 days in spite of encountering very
heavy weather on this side the Horn.
Big seas deluged the steamer fore and aft
at times, but she ploughed her way
steadily through all, weathers. Trinidad and Montevideo were touched at
on the voyage.
Captain Dent .of the Bannockburn is
geniality and hospitality itself. He ia
fond of his boat which is absolutely the
latest thing in ocean freighters the last
boat launched on the Clyde and equipped
throughout with every modem appliance.
The Bannockburn is electric lit throughout, and Captain Dent is much interested
in Prince Rupert's struggles with the
city lighting problem.
This is the steamer's second trip since
her launching, and captain and officers
are alike pleased with her achievements.
She steams a steady twelve knots.
"Do you know" said the captain
smilingly"that though we are a cargo
boat and full loaded, we beat the Princess
Beatrice coming up to Rupert? We
passed her between Alert Bay and
Haddington Island lying anchored
because of the fog. But fog or no, the
Bannockburn went on and came in to
Prince Rupert in time to berth before
the Princess Beatrice appeared.
"I am agreeably surprised" went on
Captain Dent "at the excellent docking
facilities you have at Prince Rupert.
Of course I have not been over the city

Brieg, Switzerland, Sept. 20.���Although the authorities forbade Aviators Chevaz and Weymann making a
flight over the Alps today, owing to the
adverse state of the weather, they are
to start their flight as soon as the weather
permits.
Chevaz reached a height of seven
thousand feet yesterday, and headed for
the Simplon Pass before he was forced
to dsecend because of the heavy gale.
Weymann's machine was badly damaged.
Prince   Rupert   Fog  Bound
The foggy weather which delayed the
Princess Beatrice is also delaying the
Prince Rupert. She will not be so
much late however. Advices received
by wireless this morning said she would
arrive here at four o'clock   this  after-

DR.    WALLACE    TELLS   OF    ITS
SUPERIOR    FEATURES
Beautifully Located and Well Equipped Sanitarium That Some Day
Soon Is Certainly to Become a
Widely    Popular    Health    Resort.
Dr. A. H. Wallace, of the Hazelton
hospital, is paying a visit to Prince
Rupert, and speaks very enthusiastically of the institution with which he is
connected, the conversation being brought
about by remarks upon the beauty of
the location made by Mr. Lett, colonization agent for the Grand Trunk Pacific.
"It is certainly a beautiful location,"
said Dr. Wallace, "and in addition to
that is the finest and best equipped
hospital north outside of Vancouver.
The famous Rocke de Boule mountain
forms a background and in front the

Prince Rupert as a seaport."
PRINCE   RUPERT   HOSPITAL
List of Applicants For  Position  of
Matron
The following were the applicants
for the position of matron of the, new
general hospital, Prince Rupert:- Miss
Kate McTavish, Atlin; Miss Emmie
Johnson, Vancouver; Miss Eva E. Allan,
Victoria; Miss A. Helen Adam, Victoria;
Miss E. Bonnell,' New York; and Miss
Margaret  A.   Christie,   Prince  Rupert.
The appointment was balloted for
at the Board of Trade meeting yesterday
and Miss Kate McTavish was appointed
matron.
Salvation Army
Major and Mrs. MorriB, Provincial

have the benefit of fresh meat, milk,
eggs, vegetables and fruit, which is a
great aid to their recovery.
"Also we have gas and a sewerage and
water system on the most modern lines,
and indeed the whole of the furnishing
and the surgical and other equipment
is strictly up to date.
"Dr. H. C. Wrinch is the superintendent and under his charge the hospital
has grown to be a very popular institution. We take care of the Indians
but not of the railway men. The contractors have their own hospital ar-
arrangements. But we take patients
from all over the northern country as
far as Francis lake, and up the telegraph
line to Ninth Cabin, Which is two hundred and fifty miles north. We have a
staff of five nurses ans during the past
summer they have been fully occupied.
In July we had twenty-two patients
and we now have twenty, which is about
the average."
Dr. Wallace leaves on the Prince
Rupert tomorrow for Vancouver and will
return in about three weeks.
Vancouver, Sept. 17.���The Dominion
government has given orders for the
construction of a government telegraph
line between Prinee Rupert and Stewart.
Gangs of men are already in the field,
clearing the trail for the linemen to
follow, and if present plans are carried
out the line will be completed and ready
for use befdre the end of the year.
Superintendent Phelan shortly goes north
to direct the active stringing of the wire.
The building of the new section will
be from both ends. One gang is now
working southwards from the Portland
Canal District, and another has started
from Prince Rupert.'* The route which
will be followed is along the Kitsumkalum and the Naas to Alice Arm and
on north to the new mining centre. The
centre will pass M. K. Rodger's mine
at Goose Bay.
Work will be helped by the trail
which the provincial government is
now constructing into the Kitsumkalum.

LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
Lenox, Mass., Sept. 17.���Superintendent Norman, of the George Westing-
house estate, is sponsor for a remarkable nature story. The blooded Jersey
cows of Mr. Westinghouse, he says, recently ceased to give milk. An espionage was established, and when the
cows walked into a pond it was noticed
that the pet carp in the pond seized
the opportunity to gorge themselves
w th milk. To prove just where the milk
went, employes of the place cast hooks
and lines into the water.
The first carp to bite fought gamely
and threshed about in the water full>
fifteen minuted bofore it was landed.
When cut open there were no traces of
milk, but instead several tiny balls of
butter, the product of the churning incidental to the struggles of the fish.
Superintendent Norman squelched
with a single withering glance a sapient intellect which had the temerity to
suggest that closer inspection of the
butter might even reveal the imprint
of the Westinghouse coat of arms.

NOT  YET   INCORPORATED
Mr.   Manson  Tells  Stewart   People
It Is Now Too Late
After trying hard for several weeks
to get the matter of incorporating
Stewart straightened out the esecutive
committee of the Citizens' association
has finally decided that little more towards that end can be accomplished at
this time, but will further plans nevertheless, Mr. William Manson, member for the district, who has very kindly assisted the committee, has arrived
at the same conclusion and has sent
the following letter:
"According to section ,15 of chapter
143, statutea of B. C, 1897, it appears
to me to be too late now for you to
have incorporation effected this year in
; time  to  hold  elections  in  January  as
I anticipated under the Act.    It is necessary for the petition to be in the hands
j of the provincial secretary on or before
j the 13th day of June to ensure it taking
i effect in the following January.   I have
no doubt the government would be wil-
! ling to put through a special measure
I incorporating the city next session."

STILL IN DOUBT
The great question of the right of U. S. fishermen to fish on the halibut banks
of Hecate Straits seems to be still in doubt. The Hague tribunal's decision on the
fisheries question resulted in a big victory for the British contentions and while
the Pacific Coast was not mentioned it is presumed the decision applies on the west
coast as well as on the east coast. There were five points at issue in the arbitration.
Great Britain wins on points one and five. Point five has been held by Great Britain
as the most important of those submitted. The fifth point was stated in the form
of this question:
, "From where must be measured the three marine miles of any of the coasts,
bays, creeks, or harbors referred to in article 1 of the American-British treaty of
1818?"
United States fishermen claimed the right to take the measure from any part
of the British North American shore, and therefore the liberty to fish in the middle
of any Canadian bay or estuary having a radius of more than three miles. The
British contention was that the limits should be measured from an imaginary line
connecting the headlanads.   The peace court sustained the British contention.
It would seem from this that Hecate Straits and Dixon's entrance are entirely
British waters but as against that contention is another part of the report on the
finding which reads:
"The disappointing feature of the award is the declination of the tribunal to
settle the long-disputed question as to what constitutes a bay. On this point the
question was:
'From where must be measured three marine miles of any of the coasts, bays,
creeks, or harbors referred to in the said article?'
On this point the tribunal refused to commit itself. It would not decide what
was a bay or when a bay ceases to be a bay, and it, therefore, advised that the task
of the definition of a bay should be left to the Governments concerned. The effect
of this is to leave the problem just where it was, and where it has been for generations. The contention of the United States was that the word "bay" did not interfere with the privilege of fishing three miles from shore. The British contention
was that the term bay should be taken to mean three miles from the headlands of
the bay. This was practically the only point upon which the court could not agree, and it is interesting to note that the representative of Argentina, Senor Drago
stood out for the Canadian contention."

"Canada Too Progressive"
Winnipeg, Sept. 19.���Speaking at a
Canadian Club lunch today, Mr. A. W.
Smithers, chairman of the Grand Trunk
board of directors said that the people
of Canada were trying to go ahead
too fast, and cautioned conservatism
in business and not too much new
development. Incidentally he referred
to the scarcity of labor on the Grand
Trunk Pacific, owing to the rapid
extension by other companies.
MILLINERY OPENING
Miss   Barbeau    Invites   the   Ladies
To   Her   Parlors
On Wednesday Miss Barbeau will be
prepared to show the ladies of Prince
Rupert and vicinity a most complete
line of millinery, including the leading
styles for this fall. Her specialty is
originality and exclusive styles and this
season she has made a special effort
to maintain this reputation. In the fine
display of hats you will find dress hats,
turbans, toques, and smart walking hats,
with a complete line of feathers and
trimmings. Besides millinery Miss
Barbeau also makes gowns and evening
wraps and it will be of interest to the
ladies to see these.
Miss Barbeau is holding her first
millinery anniversary and during the
past two seasons her patronage has increased so that herold quarters were inadequate and she is now in commodious
and inviting quarters in the Helgerson
block on Sixth street. All the ladies of
Prince Rupert are cordially invited to
visit Miss Barbeau's parlors tomorrow
or next day. 15-16.

RIGHT TO WORK
WILL ARRANGE  FOR  LECTURES
AND STUDIES FOR YOUNG MEN
Proposes to Lecture on Travel in the
Holy Land and Scotland, and
Arranges For Meetings For Mutual
Improvement    and    Recreation.
Naden Block
2nd Avenue
Rev. W. F. Kerr the new pastor of the
First Presbyterian Church met a number of the young men of the congregation this week in order to get to know
them and to make preliminary arrangements for organizing mutual improvement circles in connection with the church
during the winter.
"In a new city like Prince Rupert"
said Mr. Kerr "we need to join forces
and come together for recreation and
study, and I hope to be able to help the
young men materially in these diver-
tions. We can go in for many pleasant
branches of study together.
"I am thinking of several subjects
suitable for lectures and discussions,
and shall probably give my impressions
of Scotland and the Holy Land after we
organize our meetings, while we shall
also take up the study of some author
perhaps.
Rev. Mr. Kerr is enthusiastic over
his work and will certainly not spare
himself in the task of developing the
church socially, intellectually, and
spiritually. "I am glad to be back at
preaching again" he said warmly "it is
the best work of all."
A graduate of Knox College Toronto,
and' winner of a first rate post-graduare
scholarship which has enabled him to
pursue his studies in the United Free
Church College Glasgow, Scotland, and
in the universities of Germany, Rev.
Mr. Kerr will be able to conduct his
lectures and meetings with young men
in splendid manner. A talk with Mr.
Kerr about his travels in Europe is in
itself most interesting.
" I have had the rich experience and
pleasure " he said recently to the
Optimist "of undertaking a journey
through Palestine and the Mediterranean
ports with a party of students led by
Professor Charles Foster Kent professor
of Biblical theology at Yale University.
I spent Easter Sunday n Jerusalem,
and this as well as the whole trip was a
most interesting and enlightening experience.
"Summoned by cable to take up this
charge in Prince Rupert, I came out
direct from Germany" Mr. Kerr continued "I heard much about the city
all the way out, but I am even more
impressed with it than I expected to be.
Three things strike me specially: I am
surprised at the grandeur of the mountain
surroundings, the far spread buildings
occupying the townsite and at the
excellent planning of the streets, drainage, water supply etc.
"Rev. Dr. Fraser who accompanied
me from Vancouver was immensely
impressed along with myself by the
courage, skill, and foresight of the men
who have made the city what it is���the
men who have done things.
"I travelled on the way out with
Principal Murray of Saskatchewan
University, and he said he believed
confidently that within two years after
the railway gets into Prince Rupert
the city will have a population of 60,000.
"Is it not a privilege" the young pastor
continued enthusiastically, "to be called
upon to help lay the religious foundations of a city so important, and growing so fast? I count it a privilege and an
honor. I have come here expecting
to tackle a big problem. If I did not
expect that, I should never have come.
"But I feel that it is worth a man's
life to help in the work of building up
the religious life of the great community
of the citizens of Prince Rupert present
and to be."

capital stock, which stock is pooled and cannot be placed on the market before July
' No promotion stock has been issued. The proceeds obtained by the sale of
this block of treasury stock now offered, in addition to that already sold, will be

The property is under the direct management of Mr. Frank A. Brown, one of
the oldest and best known practical mining men of the West. Mr. Brown was for
seven years manager of the Jumbo Mining and Milling Coiripany of Idaho County,
Idaho, two years in the field lor the Dominion Exploration Company of New York,
and three years manager of the Bangor Placer Company in the Yukon district. He
is one of the heaviest individual shareholders in the Hazelton Nine Mile Company
and is constantly on the ground in person.
Investors may rest assured that the property will be developed to its fullest
extent and at the least possible expense by a PRACTICAL MINING MAN.
Location of Claims Owr.od by This Company
The ground owned by the Nine Mile Mining Company consists of the LEAD
KING Group of seven full claims, and is right in the centre of the proven mineralized zone on Nine Mile Mountain. Four veins of ore have been uncovered ranging
from one to twelve feet in width. On No. 1 vein a tunnel seventy-five feet Tong
has been driven, besides open cuts and surface stripping. This vein is from three
to four feet wide and from it ORE HAS BEEN SHIPPED TO THE TRAIL
SMELTER which gave a NET PROFIT of $33.25 per ton after paying enormous
freight rates. No. 2 vein is traceable for 1500 feet and averages two feet in width.
No. 3 vein is from one to four feet wide and can be traced for 1200 feet. No. 4
vein, while of not such a high grade character of ore as the fiist three, shows an
immense body of ore of the same general character and is from ten to twelve feet
wide.
About June 15th the first shipment of ore was made to the Trail Smelter and
the returns recently to hand were as follows :
Gross weight of ore lbs.
Less moisture, 0.6 per cent lbs.
Dry weight lbs.
Silver, ounces per ton	
Lead per cent.
Zinc per cent.
TOTAL VALUES
Silver, 380 ounces at 0.54 for 95 per cent	
Lead, 3167 lbs. at 0.01714 for 90 per cent

The margin of profit in these ores is so wide that a drop in the price of silver
of five cents per ounce, which would mean the closing down of many producing
mines in Canada and the United States, would still leave a substantial profit on the
ore produced by the Hazelton Nine Mile Mining Company.
At present the camp at Nine Mile is in its infancy. On the LEAD KING
claim much develoDment has been done and WORK WILL BE CONTINUED
THROUGHOUT THE WINTER. Ore will be blocked out from now on until
better transportation facilities are available, which will certainly be within a year.
The Spring of 1911 will witness the biggest mining boom in the Hazelton district that British Columbia has experienced since the development of the Kootenay
District.
THIS, THE FIRST SHIPPER IN THE DISTRICT, WILL UNDOUBTEDLY BE THE FIRST DIVIDEND PAYER.
THE LEAD KING IS A MINE TODAY, and we earnestly believe that this
is an opportunity not to be missed. We submit to the public for subscription any
part of 50,000 shares at 15 cents per share.

NEW HOSPITAL
MOTION APPOINTED AT YESTERDAY'S MEETING OF BOARD
Progress of the Building.���Heating
System���Equipment, The Financial Position���Ballot For Appointment of Matron.
��'5S8f?!:Republicancon8re88ion-
j year a,(Ute through eleven states this
A meeting of the Hospital association
was held in the Board of Trade rooms
at four o'clock yesterday afternoon.
After the secretary had read the minutes
of the last three meetings, W. Lailey,
architect gave a report regarding the
progress of the work, stating that the
contractors were getting on rapidly,
and that he saw no reason why the building shouldn't be completed by December
1st. A report regarding the heating of
the building recommending that a hot
water low pressure indirect system be
installed at an estimated cost of about
$3000. This system was recommended
by the architects Messrs. Munro and
Lailey as the most suitable for hospital
purposes. On the motion of Aid Pattullo
seconded by Magistrate Carss it was
decided to call for tenders for this work
including heating and standpipe.
A statement of the association's
position financially was then made by
tne secretary treaurer A. Cuthbert who
gave figures showing that the funds in
hand amounted to $211.82 which was
really more than swallowed up in expenses on account of balance of foundation work expense. The subscription
fund waa $3000 in arrears. The secretary
treasurer had applied to the government
for the $7600 promised towards the
hospital fund and had hoped to hear
from them in time for this meeting, but
mail was delayed.
Regarding the question of hospital
finances Aid. Pattullo recommended
the formation of a finance committee
to deal with these matters. There was
some talk about the collection of subscriptions, the Secy. Treasurer stating
that it was not so much the subscribers
who had left town as those in the city
all the time whose subscriptions were
most difficult to get.
E. Clarke thought, however, that most
of the subscriptions in arrears could very
soon be collected if a systematic series
of calls were made for it. D. Stewart
said that if the Secy. Treasurer called,
his subscription would be settled by
cheque at once, though when the matter
was left to his memory it was apt to
escape him.
Aid. Pattullo mentioned the fact that
Vernor Smith had announced at the
city council last night that his firm
Messrs Foley, Welch and Stewart were
subscribing $250 to the hospital funds
and that Mr. Stewart was subscribing
$100.
Aid. Pattullo then moved that the
President be authorized to appoint
committees to deal with the various
departments of the hospital organization, financial, building, house etc.
D. Stewart seconded the motion which
was carried.
The letters of application for the
position of matron were then read by
the Secy-treasurer and considered individually by the members of the association. After some discussion on the
question of this appointment Aid.
Pattullo moved, and Mr. Stewart
seconded the motion that the board
proceed to ballot upon the applications.
The ballot resulted in the appointemetn
of Miss K. McTavish, Atlin, as matron,
at a salary of $100 per month. Aid.
Pattullo moved that Miss McTavish
be notified of her appointment at the
above (salary, and that the date of her
taking up her duties would be announced
to her later.
The question of the equipment of the
hospital was taken up and discussed
in a general way. On the suggestion of
Magistrate Carss it was agreed that MisS
McTavish should be given plans etc of
the hospital, and asked to advise regarding equipment the board to pay her
for this service rather than retain her
services as matron before the hospital
was actually completed, or refer the
matter to the medical association.
A number of letters from various
firms offering equipment and appliances
for the new hospital were referred
automatically to the proper committee
appointed to deal with them later.
"These operating tables, etc., are
things we don't know very much about
and don't want to know more about"
said Magistrate Carss.
A letter from P. W. Anderson notifying
the withdrawal of the subscriptions of
members of the Builders Exchange from
the hospital fund owing to alleged non
compliance with certain conditions of
the exchange regarding the erection of
the building. It was agreed to file the
letter. "Frame it" suggested Magistrate Carss.
The question of the insurance of the
building in its present stage was brought
up and referred to the building committee
to be appointed. The proposal to appoint
a ladies' auxiliary was also broached
by Mr. Stewart, and Aid. Pattullo
moved that the President call a meeting
of the association by advertisements
in the press, and notices sent to the
churches for announcement by the
pastors, which meeting the ladies of the
city would be invited to attend with a
view to the formation of a ladies'
auxiliary

STILL IN DOUBT
The great question of the right of U. S. fishermen to fish on the halibut banks
of Hecate Straits seems to be still in doubt. The Hague tribunal's decision on the
fisheries question resulted in a big victory for the British contentions and while
the Pacific Coast was not mentioned it is presumed the decision applies on the west
coast as well as on the east coast. There were five points at issue in the arbitration.
Great Britain wins on points one and five. Point five has been held by Great Britain
as the most important of those submitted. The fifth point was stated in the form
of this question:
, "From where must be measured the three marine miles of any of the coasts,
bays, creeks, or harbors referred to in article 1 of the American-British treaty of
1818?"
United States fishermen claimed the right to take the measure from any part
of the British North American shore, and therefore the liberty to fish in the middle
of any Canadian bay or estuary having a radius of more than three miles. The
British intention was that the limits should be measured from an imaginary line
connecting the headlands.   The peace court sustained the British contention.
It would seem from this that Hecate Straits and Dixon's entrance are entirely
British waters but as against that contention is another part of the report on the
finding which reads:
"The disappointing feature of the award is the declination of the tribunal to
settle the long-disputed question as to what constitutes a bay. On this point the
question was:
'From where must be measured three marine miles of any of the coasts, bays,
creeks, or harbors referred to in the said article?'
On this point the tribunal refused to commit itself. It would not decide what
was a bay or when a bay ceases to be a bay, and it, therefore, advised that the task
of the definition of a bay should be left to the Governments concerned. The effect
of this is to leave the problem just where it was, and where it has been for generations. The contention of the United States was that the word "bay" did not interfere with the privilege of fishing three miles from shore. The British contention
was that the term bay should be taken to mean three miles from the headlands of
the bay. This was practically the only point upon which the court could not agree, and it is interesting to note that the representative of Argentina, Senor Drago,
stood out for the Canadian contention."

Smithers, chairman of the Grand Trunk
board of directors said that the people
of Canada were trying to go ahead
too fast, and cautioned conservatism
in business and not too much new
development. Incidentally he referred
to the scarcity of labor on the Grand

AND STUDIES FOR YOUNG MEN
Proposes to Lecture on Travel in the
Holy Land and Scotland, and
Arranges For Meetings For Mutual
Improvement    and    Recreation.
G. C. Emmerson
Naden Block 2nd Avenue
Rev. W. F. Kerr the new pastor of the
First Presbyterian Church met a number of the young men of the congregation this week in order to get to know
them and to make preliminary arrangements for organizing mutual improvement circles in connection with the church
during the winter.
"In a new city like Prince Rupert"
said Mr. Kerr "we need to join forces
and come together for recreation and
study, and I hope to be able to help the
young men materially in these diver-
tions. We can go in for many pleasant
branches of study together.
"I am thinking of several subjects
suitable for lectures arid discussions,
and shall probably give my impressions
of Scotland and the Holy Land after we
organize our meetings, while we shall
also take up the study of some author
perhaps.
Rev. Mr. Kerr is enthusiastic over
his work and will certainly not spare
himself in the task of developing the
church socially, intellectually, and
spiritually. "I am glad to be back at
preaching again" he said warmly "it is
the best work of all."
A graduate of Knox College Toronto,
and' winner of a first rate post-graduare
scholarship which has enabled him to
pursue his studies in the United Free
Church College Glasgow, Scotland, and
in the universities of Germany, Rev.
Mr. Kerr will be able to conduct his
lectures and meetings with young men
in splendid manner. A talk with Mr.
Kerr about his travels in Europe is in
itself most interesting.
" I have had the rich experience and
pleasure " he said recently to the
Optimist "of undertaking a journey
through Palestine and the Mediterranean
ports with a party of students led by
Professor Charles Foster Kent professor
of Biblical theology at Yale University.
I spent Easter Sunday n Jerusalem,
and this as well as the whole trip was a
most interesting and enlightening experience.
"Summoned by cable to take up this
charge in Prince Rupert, I came out
direct from Germany" Mr. Kerr continued "I heard much about the city
all the way out, but I am even more
impressed with it than I expected to be.
Three things strike me specially: I am
surprised at the grandeur of the mountain
surroundings, the far spread buildings
occupying the townsite and at the
excellent planning of the streets, drainage, water supply etc.
"Rev. Dr. Fraser who accompanied
me from Vancouver was immensely
impressed along with myself by the
courage, skill, and foresight of the men
who 'ave made the city what it is���the
men who have done things.
"I travelled on the way out with
Principal Murray of Saskatchewan
University, and he said he believed
confidently that within two years after
the railway gets into Prince Rupert
the city will have a population of 60,000.
"Is it not a privilege" the young pastor
continued enthusiastically, "to be called
upon to help lay the religious foundations of a city so important, and growing so fast7 I count it a privilege and an
honor. I have come here expecting
to tackle a big problem. If I did not
expect that, I should never have come.
"But I feel that it is worth a man's
life to help in the work of building up
the religious life of the great community
of the citizens of Prince Rupert present
and to be."

The margin of profit in these ores is so wide that a drop in the price of silver
of five cents per ounce, which would mean the closing down of many producing
mines in Canada and the United States, would still leave a substantial profit on the
ore produced by the Hazelton Nine Mile Mining Company.
At present the camp at Nine Mile is in its infancy. On the LEAD KING
claim much develoDment has been done and WORK WILL BE CONTINUED
THROUGHOUT THE WINTER. Ore will be blocked out from now on until
better transportation facilities are available, which will certainly be within  a year.
The Spring of 1911 will witness the biggest mining boom in the Hazelton district that British Columbia has experienced since the development of the Kootenay
District.
THIS, THE FIRST SHIPPER IN THE DISTRICT, WILL UNDOUBTEDLY BE THE FIRST DIVIDEND PAYER.
THE LEAD KING IS A MINE TODAY, and we earnestly believe that this
is an opportunity not to be missed. We submit to the public for subscription any
part of 50,000 shares at 15 cents per share.

year.       "s throuBh eleven states this
A meeting of the Hospital association
was held in the Board of Trade rooms
at four o'clock yesterday afternoon.
After the secretary had read the minutes
of the last three meetings, W. Lailey,
architect gave a report regarding the
progress of the work, stating that the
contractors were getting on rapidly,
and that he saw no reason why the building shouldn't be completed by December
1st. A report regarding the heating of
the building recommending that a hot
water low pressure indirect system be
installed at an estimated cost of about
$3000. This system was recommended
by the architects Messrs. Munro and
Lailey as the most suitable for hospital
purposes. On the motion of Aid. Pattullo
seconded by Magistrate Cares it was
decided to call for tenders for this work
including heating and standpipe.
A statement of the association's
position financially was then made by
tne "ecretary treaurer A. Cuthbert who
gave figures showing that the funds in
hand amounted to $211.82 which was
really more than swallowed up in expenses on account of balance of foundation work expense. The subscription
fund was $3000 in arrears. The secretary
treasurer had applied to the government
for the $7500 promised towards the
hospital fund and had hoped to hear
from them in time for this meeting, but
mail was delayed.
Regarding the question of hospital
finances Aid. Pattullo recommended
the formation of a finance committee
to deal with these matters. There was
some talk about the collection of subscriptions, the Secy. Treasurer stating
that it was not so much the subscribers
who had left town as those in the city
all the time whose subscriptions were
most difficult to get.
E. Clarke thought, however, that most
of the subscriptions in arrears could very
soon be collected if a systematic series
of calls were made for it. D. Stewart
said that if the Secy. Treasurer called,
his subscription would be settled by
cheque at once, though when the matter
was left to his memory it was apt to
escape him.
Aid. Pattullo mentioned the fact that
Vernor Smith had announced at the
city council last night that his firm
Messrs Foley, Welch and Stewart were
subscribing $250 to the hospital funds
and that Mr. Stewart was subscribing
$100.
Aid. Pattullo then moved that the
President be authorized to appoint
committees to deal with the various
departments of the hospital organization, financial, building, house etc.
D. Stewart seconded the motion which
was carried.
The letters of application for the
position of matron were then read by
the Secy-treasurer and considered individually by the members of the association. After some discussion on the
question of this appointment Aid.
Pattullo moved, and Mr. Stewart
seconded the motion that the board
proceed to ballot upon the applications.
The ballot resulted in the appointemetn
of Miss K. McTavish, Atlin, as matron,
at a salary of $100 per month. Aid.
Pattullo moved that Miss McTavisih
be notified of her appointment at the
above taalary, and that the date of her
taking up her duties would be announced
to her later,	
The question of the equipment of the
hospital was taken up and discussed
in a general way. On the suggestion of
Magistrate Carss it was agreed that Miss
McTavish should be given plans etc of
the hospital, and asked to advise regarding equipment the board to pay her
for this service rather than retain her
services as matron before the hospital
was actually completed, or refer the
matter to the medical association.
A number of letters from various
firms offering equipment and appliances
for the new hospital were referred
automatically to the proper committee
appointed to deal with them later.
"These operating tables, etc., are
things we don't know very much about
and don't want to know more about"
said Magistrate Carss.
A letter from P. W. Anderson notifying
the withdrawal of the subscriptions of
members of the Builders Exchange from
the hospital fund owing to alleged non
compliance with certain conditions of
the exchange regarding the erection of
the building. It was agreed to file the
letter. "Frame it" suggested Magistrate Cares.
The question of the insurance of the
building in its present stage was brought
up and referred to the building committee
to be appointed. The proposal to appoint
a ladies' auxiliary was also broached
by Mr. Stewart, and Aid. Pattullo
moved that the President call a meeting
of the association by advertisements
in the press, and notices sent to the
churches for announcement by the
pastors, which meeting the ladies of the
city would be invited to attend with a
view to the formation of a ladies'
auxiliary
Wrangell    Narrows    In    Dark
Juneau, Sept. 17.���On account of ths
lateness of the season the lighthousee
along Wrangell narrows will not be
installed this season. The appropriation
secured by Gov. Clark was not. available until late in the summer, and all
work possible has been done. The
foundations for the lighthouses are
concrete and cement, and it is feared
frosts will damage them if now started.

What   Aid.   Mobley   Suggested   Regarding Aid. Pattullo's Account
Martin O'Reilly   ���
The question of the payment of expenses to the men who travelled to
Victoria to attend the session of the
House regarding the city charter was
touched upon at last night's council
meeting. The Mayor was of opinion that
the expenses of all those who went to
Victoria in the city's interests should
be paid.
"What is to be done" asked Aid.
Barrow,"with men like Aid. Pattullo
who haven't sent in a note of their expenses?"
Aid. Pattullo explained that he had
reserved his account until after the
others had come in as he feared he
might be considered a favoured party
in the matter being a council member.
Aid. Mobley rose with the smiling
suggestion that Aid. Pattullo's expense
account should be paid in the form of a
donation to the Hospital or some other
charity, at which a ripple of amusement
ran around the council board. Arrangements will be made to ascertain the
amounts due on account of expenses
to Victoria to each one who travelled
there on city charter business.

Dr. Traynor to Bring In His

Kitselas, B. C, Sept. 17��� George A.
Kerr, fire warden for Skeena River
Section No. 20 reports that there have
been no fires of a serious nature thus far
this year. Quite a number of fires have
started and except for prompt attention
on his part would have proven serious
but in each instance they have been
taken in hand quickly by him and extinguished before doing any damage,'
with the rrault that no lumber has been
burned nor has any damage been done
to any government property any where
in his district. Great credit is due the
government for the precaution taken
and efforts made to prevent and put out
fires. The G. T. P. railway passes through
this fire section. The fire season ends
on September 30th unles the government extends the season for another
month, which was done once before in
this section.
The G. T. P. officials, resident engineers, Foley, Welch and Stewart and the
railroad contractors, deserve much
praise and have the thanks of the entire
valley, for the able and efficient assistance they have rendered Fire Warden
Kerr in fighting fires. They have been
exceedingly watchful and done all in
their power to help him in every possible
manner.

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 we'll 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 special
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.

Salmon   Caught   Off   Rock
Juneau, Sept. 16.���Illustrating how
plentiful the salmon are in Alaska waters is the report from Ketchikan,
which is vouched for by scores of witnesses. A crew of native fishermen made
a haul of 4,000 salmon off the dock
at Ketchikan, Friday. The haul was
made at a time when the tide had drifted
the salmon in.
