OPENING OF
NEW THEATRE
PHENIX TO OPEN WITH MATiNEE
MONDAY   AFTERNOON
Firat Fire Proof Building in the City-
Structure ia Complete and Modern
Throughout���Will Show the Beat
Film*    in    the    World
LABOR COMING IN
The Phenix theatre opens on Monday
afternoon at two o'clock with a special
matinee for the children. The opening
of this amusement house will be a interest out of the ordinary in so far that
it was completely destroyed by fire
just as it was nearing completion. The
new structure has been rushed up in
exactly one month and it is the first
building in town which comes in the
fire proof class.
Arthur Heiney is the proprietor of the
Phenix and in the building he has adopted and carried out all the most modern
ideas for moving picture theatres. He
has provided everything for the comfort
and conveniences of the public and he
will conduct a strictly uptodate show,
and one which everyone will be pleased
to attend or send their children. The
films will be supplied by the Laemmle
film service, which is the best in the world.
The Phenix theatre will be lighted by
an electric plant which was specially
constructed for the moving picture
shows and it is a big improvement over
the ordinary system.
For finish the Phenix theatre is one
of the nicest buildings in town. Everything shows signs of good workmanship
and reflects credit upon the men who
did the work and upon Mr. Heiney who
employed the highest class of labor.
A feature of the building is that everything used in its construction, from the
foundation to the roof, including the
furniture, was purchased in Prince Rupert
and from Prince Rupert merchants.
Among those who worked on the building are the Prince Rupert Sheet Metal
Works who did the galvanized iron work,
Ward Electric Co., put in the electric
futures, and Ward Bros., did the sign
painting and are now preparing the first
electric sign in the city.
All through Mr. Heiney has displayed
a modem spirit and there is no doubt
that he will receive a large portion of the
public's patronage.
Tong   War   Again   Waging
San Francisco, Sep. 3���Another tong
war has broken out and is now raging
in Chinatown, and a number on both
sides have been injured. Hop Sing, a Tong
man, was shot and killed in front of a
party of tourists last night.

Chartered Port Simapao
The steamer Port Simpson is to work
under charter for Messrs. Foley, Welch
and Stewart this fall. Asked by the
"Optimist" this morning whether the
steamer was already chartered by the
contractors, Mr. Smith said he understood she was, but whether she was in
active work for the firrn yet or temporarily laid up he was not sure.
ANOTHER
Yesterday the Optimist machinery went on strike and the
daily paper had to be temporarily
suspended. The office was be-
seiged with anxious enquires for
the popular paper and as a recompense we. are today putting
. out a double paper. ^
Hundred Men to Work on Railway
By Every Grand Trunk Steamer
The stringency in the labor market
is being somewhat relieved, according
to Vernor W. Smith, of Foley, Welch
and Stewart. One hundred men dame
up from the coast on the Prince Rupert
for work on the railway and one hundred are to be brought up by each boat
for some, time to come if so many can
be obtained. Even so small a number will
acclerate the rate of construction.
Mr. Mehan said this morning that the
steel had reached Mile 60 but there wa
a large bridge to be put in at that point,
and whether this bridge had been completed he has not yet heard.
Flossie Ruaaell Fined
Florence Russell whose case was remanded Thursday appeared yesterday
again before Magistrate Carss charged
with having kept a certain class of resort
in this city. The Magistrate fined her
$15 and a two-spot for costs. Flossie
produced the required amount with
alacrity and vanished as speedily from
the precincts of the police station.
MAY BE SERIOUS
MATTER, CHRIS
SECOND CHARGE WITHIN A FEW
DAYS OF SELLING LIQUOR
Chris. Chriatianaen Warned Sternly
By Magiatrate Cares on Laat Appearance Will Come Up For Trial
With   Agne*   Holm   on    Tueeday
Chris Christiansen will make another
appearance lefore the bar of the police
court on Tuesday morning. He was charge
this, morning along with Agnes Holm
with having sold intoxicating liquor
in the Fulton hotel last night. A further
charge was preferred against him of
having kept a common gaming house
in the same place. The witnesses in
support of the charge appeared in court
this morning and were ordered to present themselves in court on Tuesday
morning when the case will be investi-
It will be remembered that Chris.
Christiansen answered to a similar
charge only a few days ago, but the
evidence was insufficient to convict
him. Magistrate Carss in dismissing
the case then warned the accused in the
strongest possible terms that in the event
of his appearing again before the bar
of the police court on a like charge it
would be a serious matter for him.
NO   AUTOMATIC   GUNS
Attorney General Bowaer Outlining
Legislation   for  Next  Session
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, Sep. 3.���Attorney General
Bowser is engaged in outlining legislation for next session that will prohibit the
use of automatic guns in the taking of

SOUTH AFRICA ELECTIONS
Botha's Majority Proves Much Smaller Than Was Expected
(Special to the Optimist)
Johannesburg, Sep. 3.���A reliable
estimate of the returns of the election
gives General Botha's majority as between fifteen and twenty. The vote in
every case is much closer than was expected and that of Natal is still doubtful.
Business  Men  Take   Action    j
Today at 4 p.m. there will be a
conference of the business men
of the city and the City Council.
The purpose is to see if it is possible to make some amicable arrangement with the Grand Trunk
Pacific to give them a nominal
tax rate and in return have the
Company's local improvements
gone on with immediately. The
meeting was organized by severer of the prominent business men.
It is understood that Mr. Thos.
Dunn will offer a suggestion
which seems to meet with popular favor.
BUILDING UP
GREAT NATION
SIR   WILFRID   CONCLUDES   HIS
TOUR OF THE WEST
Returning Home Feeling That He
Now Knows Canada���Proud That
East and Weat Are Working To
Build Up a Great Nation.
(Special to the Optimist)
Medicine Hat, .Sep. 3.���The last great
meeting of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's tour of
the West was held here last night and
was a tremendous ovation. Sir Wilfrid
said he was now returning home feeling
that he now knows Canada, and is
prouder of being a Canadian and a
British subject than ever before. He
said that he finds both East and West
working harmoniously together in the
building up of one great nation, and this
realization has made him supremely
happy.
The premier and his party left late

ASSESSMENT DISCUSSED PRIVATELY YESTERDAY
Petition Prepared for Presentation
To the City Council Requesting
That Stepa Be Taken Early Towards a Smooth Setteemente.
The vexed question of the G. T. P.
assessment is exercising the minds of a
number of prominent citizens and property owners in the city. A very strong
opinion exists among many of them that
the city council should do everything
possible to reduce the probability of
friction, and to smooth the way towards
a peaceful and mutually advantageous
solution of the question.
With this object in view a number of
the leading citizens actively interested,
met in P. R. Palmer's office yesterday
afternoon and had an informal talk over
the situation. A petition has been prepared and signed by a number of citizens
for presentation to the city council requesting the council to expediate the
settlement of the assessment deadlock
and urging the advantages of a swift
an amiable settlement.
Leading citizens express the hope that
the council will give early attention to
this matter in the public and business
interests of the city.

Vancouver, Sep. 3.���(Special)���Captain
Amesbury, of the noted stevedoring firm,
Is dead. ,
OPPOSE APPLICATION
Canadian Northern to Use Canadian
Pacific Landa
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Sep. 3.���An application
has been made here to the railway commission, for the right of the Canadian
Northern railway, under the Dominion
charter of the Edmonton a& Yukon
railway, to use Canadian Pacific lands
from Lytton as far as Cisco. The application will be opposed by the Canadian
Pacific. The application for thus using
the Dominion charter is looked upon as
imperilling the Canadian Northern's
agreement with the provincial government.
NO GENERAL STRIKE
International    Socialists    Voted    in
Favor of Arbitration
(Special to the Optimist)
Copehnagen, Sep. 3.���The international socialist congress,'now concluding
its sessions here, today voted in favor of
arbitration rather than strikes, and on
the question of a general strike declared
it uncalled for and unwise and likely to
lead to a general disagreement all round.
CLOAK MAKERS'
STRIKE ENDED
HALF   MILLION   WORKERS    INVOLVED  IN  STRUGGLE
Seventy-five Thousand Idle For Nine
Weeka, Many Having Been Evicted
From Their Homes���Loss to
Manufacturers Heavy.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Sep. 3.���The cloak makers'
strike, which yesterday threatened to
spread and involve hlaf million workers,
was settled last night. The basis of the
settlement has not yet been announced
but there is general rejoicing over the
conclusion and the fact that all of the
strikers will resume work on Monday
morning.
No such strike as this has excited so
much public sympathy, many of the
women's societies and many society
women individually having done everything possible in support of the contention of the strikers. Several wealthy
women have been sued for damages by
the manufacturers association, and it was
hinted this morning that these suits
would still go on. The losses of the
manufacturers run into millions, and they
attribute much of this loss to the action
of society women.
The telegraphers' strike compares with
this only in the number of strikers and
its duration. But in this case all the
strikers were poor, with no strong,
financially-equipped union behind them.
During the time they have been idle many
of them have been evicted from their
homes, and the suffering among the
strikers generally has been very great.
HEAVY FINE FOR
SERIOUS FAULT
SAM PEARCE MUST PAY $200 AND
COSTS OR SERVE SIX MONTHS
Gave Liquor to Emily Vann, a Metlakatla Indian Woman, Whom He
Met on Wharf���Offence too Serious to Escape Punishment.
Sam Pearce appeared yesterday
before the bar of the Police Court and
pleaded not guilty to the charge of having
supplied intoxicating liquor to Emily
Vann, a Metlakatla Indian woman, whom
he had met on the wharf last night.
The woman who confessed when put on
oath, to having given at first a wrong
name, stated that she had had supper
with accused at the Exchange Grill, and
had afterwards gone for a walk with him
as far as his cabin. The rest of the
woman's evidence was taken in camera.
Further evidence was given by Sergeant Mehan who arrested Pearce and
the woman in Pearce's cabin and found
a whiskey bottle there. William Munson
stated that he had actually seen the
accused give liquor to the woman, and
was sharply cross-examined by accused
who conducted his own defence with
some ability. The woman's own evidence was to the effect that Pearce had
given her drink, and Magistrate Cams
found the accused guilty.
Chief Constable McCarvell suggested
to the Magistrate that this was a case
for the imposition of the maximum
penalty as it was clear that the effect
of the dealings with the Indians of men
like the accused was demoralizing in the
extreme to them.
Magistrate Carss said that the offence
was a very serious one, and that while
he was not inclined to impose the maximum penalty in this case he would,
nevertheless, fine the accused $200 and
costs with the alternative of two months
hard labor at Westminster.
Pearce was asked if he were prepared
to pay the fine, and said that he would
but would need some time to obtain
the money.   Meanwhile he was detained.
FATAL HAVANA DUEL
Editor of Satirical Weekly Called Out
by  Member of  Council
(Special to the Optimist)
Havana, .Sep. 3.���Juan Amer, editor
of a satirical weekly newspaper called
"Chanticler," was challenged by Jose
Penni, member of the city council, on
account of a scurrilous article attacking
the latter. The two men met and the
editor was shot dead.
No member of the House of Commons
can resign his seat.
Vancouver Telephone Question
Vancouver, Sep. 3.���(Special)���The
city council last night laid over the telephone question for further consideration.
This was after the threat that if the
present telephone company did
not put in modern automatic phones
the application of a competing company
would receive favorable consideration.
Last night the sentiment was strong
against a dual telephone system.

(Special to the Optimist)
.Seattle, .Sept.l.���The Lyons building, eight stories in height which was
rapidly approaching completion, was the
scene of a dynamite outrage last night,
the explosion doing sonsiderable damage
to the construction work but only two
people who were passing were injured.
It was at first believed to have been
an attempt to break into the Canadian
Bank of Commerce, which adjoins the
premises, but after a careful examination
of the ruins this idea was scouted. The
next conclusion, and probably the correct
one, was that the outrage was the result
of labor troubles among the mechanics.
For four or five months the mechanics
of other cities have been inhere trying
to ssart a strike for an increase of wages
but lattery the agitation has been for
an eight hour day.

THE ERROR OF SECRECY
Public opinion has been exceedingly critical of the city council's attitude to-
wards the Grand Trunk Pacific. This is evidently now realized by the council and
that august body, or those members of it who handled the question, are putting
up the rather lame defence that the G. T. P. had no proposition to make and that
the council is powerli^ss to change the assessment. These excuses are weak because
the Company did not ask for an alteration of the assessment, and had the city
council known public opinion it would not have been difficult to make a reasonable
and business like proposition for settling the question of taxes.
The G. T. P. gave their accent to the assessment. Whether it was for lack of
time to appeal, or through neglect of their officials, or because the Company was
satisfied are reasons which do not effect the case. The assessment stands, but when
it went through without appeal it is safe to say that not a single member of the city
council ever expected that the G. T. P. would pay 15 mills on a $7,000,000 assessment.
The citizens did not expect it either and a protest from the Company has been expected for weeks. When it did come in the form of communications to the city
officials it was treated as a private matter���the public were denied knowledge.
The property owners and ratepayers were kept in ignorance of a question involving
the collection of the largest item in this year's city finances. Why the council should
keep knowledge of this important dispute from the public is a mystery indeed and
the error of it is now apparent to everybody. Had the people been given an opportunity to discuss the points at issue the council would have been in a position to judge
public sentiment and could have met the G. T. P. officials with the citizens behind
them. We would have had an arbitration instead of a fight. Unfortunately the city
council is imbued with the idea that they can conduct public business without the
public or even publicity.

BRITISH BLUE BOOK SHOWS ITS
ADVANTAGES
Bristol and Hull Are Cited Aa Example
Of Succeaa Attending Taking Over
Public Utilities Such aa Telephones
And   Shipping   Facilities.
In a British Government blue book
recently issued dealing with the undertakings of various English municipalities,
there is an interesting statement showing the advantage of public management.
It concerns the Bristol docks, originally
in   the  hands  of  a  private   company. I
From the very  first, says  the report, j
the company had, financially, a difficult
task, and the fact of charging excessive
dues to ships using the docks threatened
to  send   the   great   bulk   of   maritime
traffic to rival ports.    The citizens of
Bristol, in order to save the port from |
extinction, obtained power from   Parlia-1
ment to take over the docks from thej
company at an earlier period than was
provided for in the dock company Act,
Since coming under the control of the
dock's committee of the Council their
progress has been uninterrupted.   With
more moderate dues diversion of trade
ended, and the ever-increasing volume
of commerce to and from the docks has
led to many steps forward.
Referring to the Hull, England, telephones the report says that the municipal exchange has met with public
approval, judging from the rapid extension of the undertaking. "The
moderate tariffs," it proceeds, "also
enable small tradesmen to have a service
which previously was denied them,
owing to the prohibitive rates of the
National  Telephone   Company."
The difference between a service
operated for the public benefit and one
for private profit is well illustrated by
the above.

ANJNQUIRY
INTO THE KILLING OF   HALLER
BY THE POLICE
Attorney General Bowser to Have
Full Investigation Made of the
Conduct of Chief Constable Sampson Under the Circumstances.
(Special to the Optimist)
Virtoria, Sep. 3.���Attorney General
Bowser has ordered an investigation into
the alleged negligence of Chief Constable
Sampson in connection with the killing
by the police of the demented murderer
Haller while he was resisting arrest.
Haller had killed a young man maned
Palmer, Bon of the hotel proprietor
at Krag, and had said he would come
back and kill another man. He did
come back and resisting arrest he was
shot. An inquest was held on the body
of the man Haller and the jury, in returning its verdict, found the police
were in no way to blame under the
circumstances.
Latest Style of Hand Shake
New York,���The stoop and the
high-hand shake of greeting and farewell that has been stamped as the
proper caper in society for the last
five seasons must go. For the future, if you would conform to Newport, Narragansett and Tuxedo deportment, you will not lean nonchalantly forward and lift your hand at
an altitude that suggests that you
intend to nab the tiara out of your
hostess' hair. You will stand up straight
and jab your hand directly out from
the waist line. And it is not to be lingering, lackadaisical handshake either, but
a quick grip and a short shake.
The new method has the stamp of
approval of Newport. The waist line
handshake is at the Casino, and up
in that resort of fashion the high shake
has in a few weeks become almost
obsolete.
The new, standup, low down, brisk
method of greeting was started by
Mrs. Blanche Oelriches. All the younger
set are for it, through some of the
dowagers and the old beaux effect to
believe that it is awkward and another
sign of the habit of modern times that
treats with impatience the elaborate
courtesy affected in past generations.
The clerk of the House of Commons
gets $10,000 a year.
About twelve thousand persons a
year are conveyed to hospitals by the
London police.

Old Undertaker's Horse Goea on a
Wild   Jamboree
New York, Aug. 31.���A sleepy old dobbin which had drawn a west side undertaker's wagon for years in most ap-
roved funeral pace imagined a vain
thing to-day and ran away, causing
a weird accident. After a wild flight
of several blocks, the horse and wagon
plunged into the Hudson river. The
doors of the wagon flew open and a
casket containing a body floated down
stream. The driver managed to save
himself.
The night watchman of a pier swam
out in the tide and towed the casket
ashore. The horse and wagon were
finally lifted to a dock by a derrick.

irrespective of what might be thought
best   for  other  countries.
In regard to reciprocity with the United
States he spoke at some length, concluding with the statement that Canada
had done her part and for any further
move in this direction Washington must
be looked to to take the initiative.

VAST OUTPUT
OF DIAMONDS
INCREASE     FROM      DISCOVERY
OF KIMBERLEY MINES
Two Hundred and Eighty Million*
Waahed Out Since Eighteen
Seventy.���What Becomes of Them
All ia a Question.
It has been affirmed (whether truthfully or not must remain an open
question) that prior to the opening
up of the Kimberley mines in South
Africa a bushel measure would have
held the world's supply of gems under
reference which had been won.
Since 1870 the defiency has been
remarkably well made up, for during
the 18 years between that date and
1889 some 46,000,000 of carats���approximately, for no estimate ol illicitly disposed of stones can be offered���were
won in Kimberley and surrounding
districts, having the statistical value
of $280,000,000. A trifling effort in
arithmetic will soon enable the enquirer to think of diamonds in tons.
When we have become able to grasp
this fact the question which naturally
must come to the mind is "What becomes of them?" With all this amazing
weight in diamonds our minds are not
relieved by the fact that production
is still going on at an increased rate.
In Bechuanaland, or that part of it
known as the Kalahart desert, are
undeveloped resources. There are
prospectors now in England who have
for years past known of diamondifer-
ous areas in and about the dead rivers Ob and Nosob. In the low, dry
channels of these old time rivers much
of promise exists, though the country they traverse has an evil reputation for drought. Both the Ob and
Nosob in past ages must have been
far nobler streams than any now existent in South Africa, possibly of a
magnitude which would have enabled
them to bear on their broad bosom
vessels of exceedingly deep draught.
In the event of their rich deposits
being exploited, to what use, we wonder, would the plethora of diamonds
be put. There must be a world of
wealth in the cellars of the various
banks as represented by even the surplusage. Diamonds cannot be said
to possess a standard value such as
gold has, nor is it to be thought that
the huge proportion of the world's
wealth represented by crown and family jewels will ever become intrinsically endangered? Perhaps it is this latter view of the question which keeps
heart in those who traffic in these and
other gems.���Chambers Journal.

Expects to be Ballasti ng Next Week-
Satisfactory progress is being made
with the G. T. P. track, and during the
next week rapid advance of the steel
may be expected. The section at present
under construction is not an easy one
1 but the contractors are overcoming all
i obstacles  and removing    hindrances as
I rapidly as possible.
"We have experienced some little
delay waiting for the contractors to get
' bridges   ready,"   said   Superintendent
Mehan this morning.   "But matters in
j this direction were pushed forward, and
the steel is now being laid about Mile 65.
"We expect to be ballasting within the
next week or two, and then shall be requiring fully two hundred more men.
During the last few days we have had
more men then usual applying for work,
and though labour suitable for our requirements is certainly scarce still I
expect that we shall have men enough
to make good speed with the ballasting."

In 1908, 13,337 new houses were built

Judge Young presided over the County
Court yesterday afternoon when the
case of Panvini vs. Christiansen and
Brandt came up for hearing. Messrs.
Carss and Bennett appeared for the
plaintiff and L. W. Patmore for the
defendants. The claim was for the balance due on a contract for excavation
under the Royal block and other work
done there in the construction of a
concrete wall, also for damages. The
work was unfinished and plaintiff averred that defendants had ordered him
to stop it. For the defence it was put
forward that plaintiff had never been
told to stop the work. He quit work
himself, and had been repeatedly asked
to complete the job.
Phillipio Lucio Panvini in the witness
box stated that he was an experienced
contractor for concrete and cement work
having been in charge of work of this
kind in connection with the Assouan
Barrage on the Nile. He said he had
done the excavation work required for
the job, and in regard to the concrete
wall had been shown by Mr. Christiansen
a tender for an 18 inch wall at $1900
and he had undertaken to construct a 12
inch wall strong enough for the purpose
at two thirds of the price. He began to
work but found it necessary to go deeper
than had been expected to reach bed
rock for the wall's foundations in certain
places along its length. He also found it
necessary to make the wall an 18 inch
one after all to carry the superstructure
securely. The reason he had not completed the work when asked to do so
was because the sum offered for the rest
of the work was too small the prces of
labor and material having risen.
Witness was closely questioned on
the matter of the gravel used for the
concrete which he said hadbeen purchased
'��� through Mr. Christiansen's own in-
; fluenee,   and   was  of  inferior   quality,
requir.ng more cement, and causing a
: collapse of a small portion of tbe wall.
Witness found it difficult to explain to
'. counsel why he had bought inferior
; gravel, owing to his unfamiliarity with
I the English language, but eventually
I got the court to understand that the
. fact that Mr. Christiansen himself was a
' party to the  purchase had influenced
him rather against his better judgment
also the gravel was offered at a lower
price.       The beginning of the case was
continued.

Lisbon, Sep. 2.���The government is

THE FAMOUS FOOTNOTE
Clause of Discipline Striken Out By
Methodist Conference
The specific restrictions in the Methodist Church discipline dealing with the
moral conduct of its members have been
swept away, and in their place has been
substituted a general admonition as to
good conduct, such as is consistent with
a Christian life. The clause which has
been made famous by so much discussion read as follows:
"Note���The general rules are to be
understood as forbidding neglect of
duties of any kind, imprudent conduct,
indulging in sinful tempers and words,
the buying, selling or using of intoxicating liquors as a beverage, dancing, playing games of chance, encouraging lotteries, attending theatres, horse-races, circuses, dancing parties, patronizing dancing schools, taking such other amusements as are obviously of a misleading
or questionable moral tendency, and all
acts of disobedience to the order and discipline of the church."

(Special to the Optimist)
Saragossa, Sep. 3.���The general strike
is spreading as fast as the announcement
of it can be disseminated, all news of it
being kept out of the mails and the telegraphs by a strict censorship. Here
everything is at a standstill. All the shops
and factories are closed and the streets
cars have stopped running. No newspaper
are published and all the announcements
of meetings and so forth are scrawled
by hand.
The reports coming in from the
surrounding country are that even the
farm laborers are leaving their places
to flock to the cities. All the garrison
towns are being strengthened and there
is liable to be a clash between the military and the proletariat at any moment
THE NAME OF PHENIX
Mr. Heiney's Theatre Nearly Completed For the Second Time
Mr. Heiney's new theatre on Second
avenue has risen from its ashes, as it
were, and hence he has given to it the
name of the Phoenix. It is much superior in every way to the one that was
burned down when nearly completed and,
moreover, has a distinctive style that
is an advertisement in itself. It is of the
Egyptian order of archit ecture.
Lest Busy Workers Forget
In such'a strenuously hard working
city as Prince Rupert it is perhaps necessary to remind the citizens that Monday
September 5th, is Labor Day when busy
workers may consider themselves entitled to a well earned respite from toil for
the day. Quite a number of little outings
are being planned for the week end, and
if the weather clerk behaves well, there
will be smiles all round.
FIRST DEER OF
THE SEASON
TAKEN ON PORCHER ISLAND AND
BROUGHT TO CITY
Game Laws Not Altered As To Deer
And More Are Expected In Town
Today���Well Known Prince Rupert
Citizens to Hunt This Season.
Venison will be on the bill of fare tomorrow. It is in some cases today but
as far as known only one deer has been
brought in since the first and this was
exhibited at the Prince Rupert fish market
yesterday morning. It came from Porcher island and weighed one hundredand
thirty pounds. There has been no change
in the game regulations as to deer, and
the open season for pheasants, blueand
willow grouse, grouse, and quail will
start on the 15th of .September as originally set. This announcement is
contained in a letter from the provincial government to Mr. C. E. Todd,
chairman of the Vancouver Island
Fish and Game club, which body requested the authorities to postpone
the shooting for a fortnight, making all
game legal prey from the 1st of October.
It is understood that, after giving
the matter careful consideration, the
government came to the conclusion
that the petition was received at too
late a date. To take such a step, the
administration argued according to unofficial report, would have resulted
in confusion. Some would have gone
out after game from the 15th and
others would have held back to the
new date. To prosecute the former
because of their lack of knowledge,
after short notice, would have scarcely been fair and it would have been
equally unfair to those who knew and
refrained to allow others to shoot
with impunity. Under the circumstances
therefore, it was thought advisable to
allow the season to remain as first advertised.
Although according to some pioneer
hunting men of Prince Rupert, this city
is not what it used to be in the world
of sport with the rifle, still quite a number of prominent citizens and well known
hunters are looking to their guns and
getting ready to hike for the bush and
get busy on the trail of the deer. .
T. C. Birnie of the firm of Birnie and
Machachlan, is going out with a party
of guns the details of which he has not
yet arranged. The probable destination
of the party will be Pitt Island, and the
south and east districts.
"I find" said Mr. Birnie "that there
is little good going out with a rifle after
deer now to any district which a man
can visit and return to Prince Rupert from
in one day. There will be no sport worth
mentioning in such a district. I visited
one such place only recently, where
formerly there were whole herds of deer,
and saw not a single deer.
George Tite, and J. G. ��5cott both
well known hunters are contemplating
an excursion or two this season. Mr.
Scott is familiar with most of the promising hunting grounds on the coast, and
particularly with Porcher island and
Queen Charlotte island.
Others who are likely to make hunting
excursions of their own, or to be members
of hunting parties this season are William
Angle builder of the new Westenhaver
block in process of erection, and C. C.
Westenhaver himself a well known
hunter.
The opening of the hunting season
has of course been marked by an increase of business in the ammunition
and sporting goods sections of the hardware stores in the city, and even brisker
business in this line is expected.
FAVORS CONSCRIPTION
Leading Authority on British Army
Has Changed His Opinion
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Sep. 2.���Lord Esher, a leading authority on the British army and
a consistent supporter of the volunteer
system as opposed to conscription,
has come out in favor of compulsory
training. The lack of necessary recruits
for the territorials has caused his change
of opinion.
Shocks  Felt  in  England
London,   .Sep.   3.���(Special)���Earthquake shodes were distinctly felt here
shortly   after  midnight,   and   recorded
on  all  instruments.
Judgment of Solomon
One of the most wonderful films is
now being shown at the Empress theatre.
It tells the familiar Bible story of the two
women who quarrelled as tho the ownership of a boy baby, and depicts the palace
and the gorgeous throne room of the great
Jewish law giver, with his guards and
councillors in the handsome attire of the
age. The character of the All-Wise is
well pourtrayed, and the act when the
centurion snatches the infant and draws
his blade is thrilling.
ONE ROBBER
WAS KILLED
TWO   OF   HIS   COMPANIONS   IN
HOLD   UP   ESCAPE
Daring Attempt to Rob Colorado
Express Train.���Engineer Is Shot
And Wounded But Managed to Kill
One of Three Robbers.
(Special to the Optimist)
Leadville, Sept. 3.���An attempt made
this morning to hold up the express on
the Colorado Midland ended in one
robber being killed, Engineer Stewart being wounded in the leg and two other
robbers put to flight.
It is supposed the three robbers got
on the train at the last junction. The
first known of their presence was when
Engineer Stewart found himself covered
by a man on the tender. He quickly
drew his own gun and shot the bandit dead
The two other robbers, after riddling
the door of the express car when the
messenger refused to open it for them,
and seeing the rest of the train men
ready for the attack, took to the hills.
A posse is now pursuing them with confidence of being able to come up with
the two brigands.
Henry Eighth As a Pageant
London, .Sep. 3.���(Special)���Shakespeare's drama. Henry VIII, was presented for the first time as a pageant
last night and was a great success. Sir
Beerbohm Tree was in the leading role.
John Dobing  Injured
While working on the Black hotel
on Thursday afternoon John Dobing,
carpenter, fell through the joists. He was
taken to his home on First avenue near
McBride, badly bruised, and it will
likely be several days before he is able
to be at work again.
Indian Woman Intoxicated
Emily Vann the Indian woman from
Metlakatla to whom Sam Pearce was
found guilty of giving whisky last night,
appeared this morning before Magistrate
Carss to answer the charge of being
drunk. It appears that she was not
sufficiently intoxicated to cause any
serious disturbance and the Magistrate
dismissed her with a warning.
REMOVAL OF
COAL TARIFF
LETHBRIDGE  COAL  OPERATORS
WAIT   UPON   PREMIER
Declared Reciprocity With United
States Would Enable Them to
Capture Montana and Idaho
Trade. Tariff Hampering Output.
(Special to the Optimist)
Lethbridge, .Sep. 2.���Sir Wilfrid Laurier inspected the coal mines here yesterday morning and in the afternoon a
delegation of colliery proprietors waited
upon him and asked him to remove the
tariff on coal. They declared this tariff
hampered the output, and if reciprocity with the United States were
arranged they could capture the coal
markets of Montana and Idaho.
The premier also received a delegation of the United Farmers of Alberta,
who pressed for free trade.
POLICEMEN SCARED
Areoplane Sweeps Down and About
Madison Square at Night
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Sep. 2.���Policemen on
the beats around Madison Square had
the scare of their lives last night when a
mysterious aeroplane awooped down into
the square. It seemed as if about to
alight but after coming to a stop soared
again and sweeping around the Flat Iron
building disappeared in the darkness
without revealing its identity.
Lacrosse Team For England
Montreal, Aug. 31.���There is a plan
on foot to send a Montreal lacrosse
team to England next spring. It is
not certain yet whether the N. L. U.
champions will be sent or a combination, but President Findlay, of the
Montreal team, is strongly supporting
the plan. It is thought that the team
could arrange enough games to pay
for the trip.
BIG FURNITURE SALE
Starts  on  Tuesday  Morning  When
Everything Will Be Reduced
Hart's big clearingsale of furniture
and household goods will start on Tuesday morning instead of Monday as
announced yesterday. Monday being
labor day is a public holiday. Keep the
date in mind and watch for the big
adv., announcing the sale in Saturday's
Optimist. Mr. Hart has just put every
article in the store under the hammer.
The Lot of the Man in Blue
The question whether or not Sergeant
Mehan of the Prince Rupert Police Force
exceeded his duty in the matter of the
amount of force used to effect the arrest
of the woman Flossie Russell is not likely
to be pursued to the extent of a police
commissioner's investigation. Both
Magistrate Carss and Chief McCarvell
are satisfied that Sergeant Mehan had an
extremely awkward situation to deal
with in this particular case and exonerate him from all blame in the matter.
It is just another evidence of the truth
of Gilbert's world famous discovery that
"when constabulary duty's to be done,
a policeman's lot is not a   happy one."
Specials    in    Furniture
The Brin Furniture Store has decided
to make Saturday a special feature day
in future. It will pay all to watch their
advertisement for the Saturday specials.
Beginning next Saturday they will put
on kitchen furniture at a ridiculously
low price. The following weeks other
lines of furniture will be specialed.

OLIVER READY
TO RESIGN
SPLIT   IN   LAURIER'S   CABINET
WAS     IMMINENT
Minister of Interior Objected to
Federal Premier Setting Aside
Former's Regulation Respecting
Railway Belt of British Columbia
Nelson, B. C, Aug. 29.���It is understood that Sir Wilfrid Laurier has
just avoided a ministerial crisis. The
occasion was the regulations made by
Hon. Frank Oliver for the settlement
of lands in the railway belt of British
Columbia, relating to the limited homesteads in timber cleared lands to 40
acres and pre-emptions to the same
area on the ground that these are
orchard lands. In Oliver's absence in
the north, it is stated, these regulations were set aside by the premier
owing to protests from this part of
the country. Consequently Oliver, on
his return, took exception at his regulations being overridden without his
being consulted. This resulted in
Oliver making a special trip to British
Columbia to see Sir Wilfrid, and in
circles well informed, a resignation
Beemed in order. The nature of the
solution is not known, but events show
that Oliver returned east apparently
pacified.

MYSTERIOUS  HERMIT
His Identity At Length Disclosed By
Grand Duke Nicholas
Grand Duke Nicholas Michaelaio-
vitch of Russia, in an article just published in the Revue Historique in Paris, has at length furnished an authoritative view to the identity of the mys-
'terious hermit, Fedor Kosmich, who
died in 1864 in a monastery at Tomsk.
According to popular report, which
has found widespread belief both within the Russian Empire and beyond
its borders, this hermit was no other
than Emperor Alexander 1, who had
survived his officially proclaimed death
at Taganrog in 1825, and had retired
from the world owing to the profound
remorse which overtook him in his
later years for his share in the responsibility for the shocking murder of his
crazy father,  Emperor Paul,  in  1801.
This belief was fostered by tfce fact
that every member of the Impmal
family who passed through Tomsk
made a point of visiting the hermit
treating him with profound veneration
and regard, and since his death in 1846
his tomb in the monastery has also
been the bourne of many an imperial
pilgrimage. Moreover, his resemblance
to the members of the Imperial family
was so striking as to convince everybody that he was a member of the
House of Romanoff.
Grand Duke Nicholas now furnishes
proof that the hermit at Tomsk was
an illegitimate brother of Emperors
Alexander 1 and Nicholas 1, the offspring of an intimacy between their
father, Czar Paul, and the Polish Princess Czartoryska. A letter printed
in The Revue on April 21, called
attention to the absolutely conclusive
evidence produced by Grand Duke
Nicholas of Emperor Alexander's death
at Taganrog, in 1825, quoting letters
of his consort to his mother, in* which
the Czarina described, day by day, how
she had nursed him in his last illness,
and how he had died in her arms.

Individuality
This is the most important of the
fundamental principles of Job
Printing and is embodied in every
piece of work bearing the stamp of
The Optimist Job
There are twenty-five kinds of Socialism, and their weakness is that their
leaders do not study the past "which
is the cause of the present," said Dr.
Emil Reich the other day in one of
his popular London lectures. Some
of his epigrammatic utteiances are reported verbatim.
"The soul of English history is inequality of chance.
"You have built up a huge Empire
on inequality, and now you cry for
equality. The principle should be in*
dividualism: the principle that made
England.
"You don't excel in measures, but in
men. It is infinitely more important
to have men than measures.
"A Frenchman can become a great
personality, but not until after a time,
and the greatest men in France are
women.
"If Socialism is introduced, personality goes out of the window. Personality is the foundation of everything,
and cannot co-exist with Socialism.
"Socialism constantly led to a larger
number of bureaucrats. Still they
would do it perhaps���the Welsh pipe
was so enchanting.
"Why are the Germans great musi
cians? Because they are the most
unfortunate nation in Europe. The
Thirty Years' War made them musicians. The English were too happy to
have musicians.
"Poverty and inequality of chance
was  the   very  life-principle   of  everything.    There was a very considerable
portion of truth in Lord Rosebery's assertion that genius needed poverty.
"No   Socialist   organization   had   a
foreign  policy.      That   was  its  fatal
point.    Foreign policy was the beat of
all policy, and especially   in England.
Foreign policy was practical history.
"He who thought that what he
might call the pandemonium of peace
would ever arrive was utterly mistaken.
"The neglect of foreign policy was
absolute  and sure  death.
"Socialism founderasd on personality,
which   it   could   never   produce,   and
which   demolished   it;   it   ignored
I past and it ignored foreign policy.
"Let  us have a free  England,
not a free lunch.
"England is a necessity, besides being in many ways an ideal."

TOMMY BURNS BOXING

(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Sep. 3.���Tommy Burns
boxed four rounds last night in an exhibition contest with Inspector Mclntyre,
at the Athletic club. There was a big
crowd present. Tommy contented himself with love taps and at that had the best
of it all the way.
The exhibition was for the purpose of
sending the V. A. C. champion amateur
lacrosse team east after the Mann trophy.
Reward for the Dynamiter
aSeattle, Sep. 3.���(Special)���Governor

Wat All a Mistake From the Very
Beginning of It.
(Special to the Optimist)
Winnipeg, Sep. 3.���On the report that
the Lyall-Mitchell contracting firm was
not connected with the Peter Lyall company of Montreal, the building trade
lockout here has ended. It was seen to
have been a mistake from the beginning.
The building trades have failed in
the attempt made here to organize
a Canadian union independent of the
International.
FAILED TO MAKE IT
Another  Attempt  to  Swim  Across
English Channel Ends as Usual
(Special to the Optimist)
Dover, Sep. 3.���Ted Heaton made a
good attempt to swim across the English
channel but failed to make it. He started
from here attended by friends in motor
boats and got within four miles of the
French coast when he had to give up.
He had been in the water sixteen hours.
FOR TRIP TO HONOLULU
Prince Rupert May Be Chartered By
Business Men of Coast
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Sep. 1.���It is likely that
the steamer Prince Rupert will be
chartered by the business men of Vancouver, Portland, Seattle, Tacoma and
Spokane for a splendid trip to Honolulu
in February. The vessel is insured for
coast traffic only, but if this point can
be arranged she will go.
It is reported that a steamer of the
Balcom line now in the fruit trade from
Liverpool to Spain, has been purchased
for the run from this port to Prince
Rupert and Stewart.
NOW LEADS THE WORLD
Winnipeg  Now  the  Biggest  Wheat
Market and Second For Oat*
(Special to the Optimist)
Winnipeg, Sep. 8.*���The figures for
the crop of the year show that Winnipeg
is now the biggest wheat market in the
world, it having passed Minneapolis,
the former leader, by ten million bushels.
Also, Winnipeg is second only to
Chicago as the market for oats.
Great   German   Son gfeat
San Francisco.Sep. 3.���(Special)���-More
than ten thousand Germans are here
from all parts of the country for a
songfest, the principal event in which
is the contest for the Kauser's cup.

Panic In Train Leads Twenty Thousand People to Flee.���Grave Danger
Anticipated From Fleeing Population   of   Infected   District*.
Bari, Italy, Aug. 30.���The epidemic
of cholera which has broken out in
southern Italy is steadily showing an
increase in the districts already affected, particularly in the town of
Trani, where the number of deaths
is already more than 30. The latest
official report gave twenty deaths at
Trani, and twelve more, with nineteen
new cases, were reported today, showing the rapidity with which the disease
is increasing there. The epidemic is
of a virulent type and the death rate
is high.
Outside the Trani the largest reports
are three cases and one death at An-
dria, three deaths at Barletta, one case
and one death at Margherita di Sa-
vola, one case and no deaths at Cerig-
nola, one death at Biscoglie and one
case and one death at Bitonto.
Even graver danger is anticipated
from the fleeing population of the infected districts, who may bear the
germs of the disease to other places.
Trani seems almost deserted as a result of the panic, 20,000 persons, fully
one half of the population, having
fled from the town, Fully as many
have fled from the island town of Barletta.
Work For a Living Now
Four of the old heavyweights, after a tidal wave of prosperity, are
working for a living. Mike Shreck
is working as a watchman somewhere
out on the coast; Jack Munro is handling a pick and shovel and working
at his old trade (mining) in Cape Breton;
Peter Maher is a bartender in Philadelphia; Fitzsimmons, Corbett and
Sullivan are on the stage and Jeffries
is practically retired. Jeff quit the ring
with a fortune and bought a saloon
in Los Angeles which has made him
another fortune. Then he purchased
a big ranch and he lost no money by
that deal. He owns a lot of real estate
in Los Angeles and San Francisco and,
take all in all he is about the richest of
the old fighters.
During the last year the earnings of
persons confined in British prisons
showed an increase of nearly $100,000.
At the beginning of last year there

OPPOSING THE
GRAND TRUNK
ANOTHER CITY HAS DIFFICULTY
WITH COMPANY
Fort William Property Ownera Object
To Granting Railway Running
Rights Through the Buiineta
Section of Their City.
Fort William, Ont., Aug. 31.���Interested property owners will make a
strenuous fight to-morrow, before the
Dominion board of railway commissioners, to prevent the issuance of an order
giving the Grand Trunk Pacific running rights on Empire avenue and Har-
distry street. Under the agreement under which Fort William became the
lake terminal of the G. T. P. the city
cannot contest the application of the
railway for the desired running rights,
but the owners of property along the
affected thoroughfares have pooled their
interests and retained the services of a
staff of solicitors.
It is understood that the property
owners failing to permanently block
the 'railroad from tapping the downtown wholesale and warehouse districts
of the city will ask and insist that they
be reimbursed for any damage the cutting up of the thoroughfares with railroad tracks will do their property.
Members of the board are expected
to arrive here this evening and the formal session will be held Saturday morning in the court house at Port Arthur.
It is not unlikely that the session will
also be featured by the introduction of
the application of the C, N, R. for an
entrance into Port Arthur from the
east, The railway has favored a route
which the city will oppose. If the application is granted the C. N. R. will be
placed in effectual control of Port Arthur's entire lake front and the site
recently given to the Western Dry Dock
and Shipbuilding company will be seriously damaged. The city favors a route
on the city side of the C. P. R., which
parallels the lake front in the eastern
portion  of that city.
NEWSPAPERS COMPARED
Crippen   Case   Bring*   Out   Certain
Contrasting      Features
The Crippen case has been the cause
celebre of the last fortnight. Its most
remarkable feature is the number of
despatches, fake and genuine, which
were worked up. The fake despatches
were mainly by American newspaper
men who seem to be under contract
to send out sensations whether they are
true or not. There was a time when a
Canadian journalist who needed money
and had a good imagination could always
get the necessary remittance by sending
some outlandish sensation to a New
York journal. To-day there is more
conscience in the New York press, but
nevertheless sensationalism still demands
its sacrifices.
There never was a time when a
Canadian newspaper would publish a
sensation which it knew to be untrue
or which it suspected might be false.
This was the difference between reporting in Canada and the United States.
Yet the changes of the years have brought
the papers of the two countries nearer to
the same standard. The United States
press' is less sensational, the Canadian
press rather more sensational. As the
standards of the "other side" have gone
up, Canada's have come down.
Perhaps we still have the advantage,
but it is not so great. In this Crippen
case, the Canadian papers have published
"stuff" which it was necessary to contradict later, thus showing that we are
not as careful as we once were. Perhaps
this is a mark of our growing cosmopolitanism.���Canadian Courier.

Daughter of Senator Elkins
Well Seasoned Lumber of Pioneer
Buildings Realize Good Prices.���
Hunting for Nickles and Dimes
the Under Old Flooring
The old Calumet hotel is now a thing
of the past. Rapid progress with the
���work of demolition has reduced the
structure to a pile or two of firewood,
and a number of loads of quite profitable
lumber. Mr. Hicks the contractor for
the new general hospital, who bought the
old building for a song, is said to have
made a very advantageous deal by the
transaction, as dry well-seasoned lumber
is none too plentiful in the district and
The Calumet supplied quite a lot of
it which sold again readily at good prices.
During the first days of the demolition
there was a small silver mine among the
old timbers for the workmen engaged
in tearing down the place. Long lost
coins mostly of the variety known to
commerce as the "nimble nickel", which
had slipped into crevices and corners
eluding search, came again to light.
Several four-bit pieces were unearthed,
and not a few two-bits. One workman
estimated the amount found at from $2
to $2.50 a day during the first days, and
about $10 altogether.
"But," he remarked "I didn't run
across any fat rolls of bills. I guess they
must be over there among the mattresses.
Across the street from the Calumet
another well-known business block is
rapidly being reduced to lumber. The
compact group of office premises in
which F. B. Deacon conducted business
till this week, and which was also tenanted by the Christiansen-Brandt firm,
C. D. Newton, and Campbell's confectionery store, is cleared of all interior
fittings and partitions and reduce to a
shell.
An interesting fact in support of the
city council's precautionary measure
regarding the construction of stove
chimneys has been brought to light by
the workmen engaged in demolishing
this building. It was found that a
chimney had here been constructed in
such a way that the pipe tested simply
on the wood beams, and that for a long
time during the occupancy of the offices
these beams had actually been on fire.
They were well charred away around the
pipe, and evidently had smouldered
steadily every time a good fire was in
the stove below. Only the absence of
a draught of air near them had kept them
from bursting into flame which would
have certainly spread rapidly to the roof
and downwards all through the building.
Some very good and well seasoned
lumber is in this building also, and it is
understood that Mr. Deacon will use
it in the erection of his new house.

MAY CALL GENERAL STRIKE IN

Change in Law Proposed That Interdicts Unions From Collecting
Assessments to Support Their
Parliamentary   Representatives.
London, Aug. 31.���Led by the Tory
of England, the British militarists are rapidly gaining ground on their
"Universal service" movement which
would render every man between the
ages of 16 and 45 subject to at least a
year's strict military training. A qualification of this rule would allow exemption on the payment of a certain
tax for non-service. On account of this
limitation the proposed measure has
found advocacy among the "upper
classes" as well as with the mass of
workingmen.
The German scare enabled the militarist press and the London Express in
particular to found their arguments
for conscription on a popular basis.
Already the movement has become an
issue that will be threshed out at the
next general election. The substance
of the scheme is to impress every male
subject between 16 and 46 for a minimum service of one year and a maximum of five. For those who would
evade such service a tax of considerable percentage will be imposed so that
not too many might pay it and the conscription idea thus be defeated.

the crew were all safely landed and there
was no panic at the time the boat struck.
Ups and Downs of Mining
The Greenwood Ledge has the following: "The ups and downs of mining districts are plainly seen in the
history of the Slocan. Just thirteen
years ago the business done at the
mining recorder's office in New Denver
was thirty-two times greater than it is
at the present time. Still there is yet
concealed within the steep mountains
of the Silvery Slocan vast stores of
mineral wealth, awaiting the day when
man will force it into the markets of the
world."
London, Aug. 31.���A definite alignment of the British working classes
against the present Government system is believed to-day to be foreshadowed in the announcement yesterday
by the labor conference that it will demand a change in the law that prohibits labor unions from assessing their
members for the benefit of their Parliamentary representatives.
Ramsay MacDonald, one of the leaders of the Labor party, declared to-day
that "yesterday's resolutions mean more
than they say. We are going to obtain
our rights or somebody is going to feel
the weight of the united opposition
of the English workmen."
Political leaders are not deceived by
the moderate tone of the resolution
favoring the inauguration of a campaign for the right to use union labor
funds for political purposes. The resolution is believed to veil a warlike determination, and there is grave fear
that they will carry the issue to the
point where the Government might be
forced to outlaw all labor unions.
This would bring the threatened
general strike of the 165 labor unions
in Great Britain, with a membership
of 1,500,000. Leaders of the Liberal
party favor making concessions to the
labor unions to avoid alienating the
Labor and Irish members of Parliament
from the present successful Parliamentary alliance. In this, however
they are sure to be opposed by the
Conservatives, who want the threatened withdrawal to materialize so that
they will again have a majority in
parliament.

Fifteen  Miles  From Railway.
The Daley and Sullivan group of two
claims situated three miles back from
the Red Cliff Extension, has been bonded to Captain John Irving of Victoria,
for $35,000. T. Moore Fletcher, M. E.,
who made the examination for the
Victoria investor, states that there is
a strong five-foot vein of quartz traversing the claims containing rich values
in arsenical iron. Assays made by the
owners gave returns of $590 and $127
in gold. Mr. Fletcher, who sampled
the showings for his clients, says that
the news of the strike followed close
on his visit and as a consequence numerou
locations were made the morning after
his arrival on all adjoining ground.

(Special to the Optimist)
Spokane, Sep. 2.���Bob Brown, manager for the Beavers, protested five games
played earlier in Seattle with Spokane,
because Holm and Ostdick, who worked
in them for the Indians, had not been
signed on by Cohen.
There is a possibility that a six-
club professional baseball league may
be formed in the Northwestern League next year, including teams from
Victoria and Everett. Bob Brown,
manager for the Vancouver team, looks
for something like this to happen
rather than see an eight club coast
league formed comprising the best
cities of the Northwest and California
as has been suggested.
The fate of the pennant in the Northwestern league is still in doubt. Spokane
is leading with Vancouver coming strong
in second place.

The Games Yesterday
Vancouver, .Sep. 2.���The result of
the league games played yesterday is
as follows:
Tacoma five, Seattle two.
Spokane eight, Vancouver seven. Ten
innings.
This is the story in brief contained
in a letter to the Omineca Herald from
R. P. Trimble a mining man of Portland,
Ore., of the new discoveries in the district
near the south end of Babine lake where,
as was announced exclusively in the
Herald of July 30th, native silver had
been recently discovered by two pro-
spectors, Severson and Swanson.
Mr. Trimble has spent the summer in
this district for the past four years and
is representing large capital in Portland
and Spokane. Locally he is supposed
to be out for Charles Sweeny, the
Spokane millionaire.
Writing under date of August 17th,
he says:
"We have struck free gold and native
silver near the south end of Babine lake,
about fifteen miles from the Grand Trunk
right of way. The ore occurs both free
and with tellurides, and is similar to
the ore deposits of Cripple Creek. There
the hills are low lying, with a basement
rock of granite, over which were spread
breccias and tuffs. Through these came
dykes. The whole region is surrounded
by granite. So in this country the hills
we have struck the rich stuff in are the
low lying ones, close to the lake. The
basement rock is granite and is covered
with something that looks like quartzite,
���nd this is cut by dykes. The ore is very
rich in places and much replacement
has occurred in the country rock adjoining the fissures. I have found net
work gold in the country rock, alongside
of several small fissures which carried
wore silver.
We have located several claims ourselves and have also purchased outright
or bonded all the claims located by
Severson, Swanson, Haynes andMacdona.
They and ourselves are the only ones
that I know of who have come into this
new place.
The district is about two and a half
miles wide, but how long it is I had not the
time to find out."
A meeting of the Skeena Agricultural
and Mining Exhibition association was
held in the board of trade rooms last
night, Mr. Morris, in the absence of
President Tite, in the chair. The details
in connection with the exhibit announced
for the end of this month were discussed at length, but it transpired that
the Foley, Welch and Stewart warehouse would not be available for the
purpose as it was shortly to be moved.
Not being able to secure a building
of sufficient size there was a talk of
giving up the exhibition altogether.
This at first was strenuously combated,
but there seemed to be no help for it.
The matter was brought to a focus by
a motion by Mr. Dawson that the secretary be instructed to advise all of the ex-
cutive committee resident out of town
that the large exhibition to begin September 20th had had to be abondoned
for the reason stated. This was seconded
by Mr. Morrison and carried.
The secretary was further instructed
to state in the communication that only
exhibits of a permanent character were
desired, and that these would be shown
in the board of trade rooms and other
public places, the idea being to start a
nucleus for a permanent exhibition of
resources, which would form an important feature of the first great annual
exhibition.
Got   Off   Light
In the police court this morning Chris
Johnson pled guilty to the charge of

What "U. S. A." Stands For.
Most Englishmen addressing letters
to the United States use the contraction "U. S. A.," despite frequent admonitions by American friends that the
letters stand for "United States Army,"
and that "U. S." is the correct form.
Now the matter has been complicated.
It appears that a number of letters
destined for places in South Africa
have been sent to America because the
writers addressed them "U. S. A.,"
meaning "Union of South Africa," and
the British postoffice has had to issue
a notice warning the public not to use
the initials "U. S. A." when they mean
"Union of South Africa."
"For these initials are customarily
used as an abbreviation of 'United
States of America,'" the notice says���
London Correspondence to New York
Times.

Flirtation With Stamps
Flirtation by means of the so-called
"language of stamps" has been forbidden
in Austria because of the lese majeste
committed in subjecting the sovereign's
picture to various undignified positions.
It should be forbidden in Canada because a stamp in any but the correct
position is a hindrance to the expeditious
stamping of the mail matter.
