.Mr. M. K. Rogers, the well-known
mining expert and president of the
Hidden Creek Mining company, operating in the Portland Canal district, who
ws in the city recently, stated that
his company would very shortly build
a smetter in connection with its properties at (loose Bay, Observatory Inlet,.
Construction work on the smelter will
probably he started this summer. It
Will cost, approximately, $500,000 and
"ill be capable of treating 500 tons of
ore daily in its initial stages. When it
g��s going the company will make a
bid for the treatment of ores from
Alaska and northern British Columbia.
Mr, Rogers has the greatest confidence in the future of the Portland
Canal district, but says that people
should not look for immediate results.
Associated with him in the Hidden
Creek enterprise is Mr. Thomas
Hodgins, g former Rutte banker, now
resident In New York. Mr. Rogers
Mys that they selected the Goose Bay
m"ie on its merits, and are confident
'"at it is only surpassed in Alaska
��y ihe Bonanza mine. The property
has been opened for a distance of about
'.MO feet, disclosing a solid ore body
8TO feet wide. About $400,000 has been
spent In development work and Mr.
KOgers estimates the amount of ore

TEMPORARY SEWERS.
The  Promoters Want to Get Many
More Users.
A meeting of the temporary sewer
promoters was held yesterday afternoon at the Talbot House with G. T.
Williams in the chair. The main topic
of discussion was how could the owners
of the larger blocks be induced to connect
up with the temporary service. It will be
late in the fall before any permanent
sewers are constructed and the temporary
line is now at their disposal at small cost.
If people on Third and Second avenues
and Sixth street would join the promoters
the sewage would be disposed of very
economically for all. The meeting eas
adjourned until this afternoon in the
Talbot  House.
DEATH TO ALL RATS.
Council Will Co-operate With Others
in Destroying the Pest.
As a result of the efforts of the Board
of Trade, the G. T. P. and Foley, Welsh
and Stewart, the council has decided
to co-opernte in the extermination of rats.
The pests have got to go and go quickly.
They have received the same notice as
the blind pig operators. The Health
Committee of the council has the matter
in hand and in a day or so they will
report to the council upon their investigations and then a day will be set for
the distribution of the virus. The whole
city will be done at the same time or as
nearly so as possible.
Mr. H. H. Clarke as representing the
Board of Trade in reference to the
extermination of rats said that the board
had secured 250 tubes of virus. He said
the Council should have the sanitary
inspector distribute these and see that
they are carried out. The G. T. P. and
Foley, Welsh & Stewart will co-operate.
Mr. McMaster said that the stuff
they had would have to be used by June
20th. The company would do all they |
could and the stuff would have to be used
all over the infected section at one time.
Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Mclntyre
moved that the sanitary inspector be
authorized to co-operate with the G. T.P.
and Foley, Welsh and Stewart.���carried.
Dr. Mclntyre outlined the importance of exterminating rats and he recited
the most alarming conditions in San Francisco a couple of years after the earth
quake. In conclusion he said that
concrete was the great enemy of the rat
and when we got concrete walks and
docks the rat question will look after
itself.
The health and license committee
are to bring in a report at the very earliest moment.
WILL SEND DELEGATION
PUBLICITY  CLUB TO WELCOME
THE PRINCE RUPERT.
Two Representative Citizens Going
to Seattle on Invitation of Grand
Trunk���Informal Dance to be
Given to Visitors.
The Publicity Club is going to send a
delegation to Seattle to come to Prince
Rupert with the distinguished people who
have been invited for this trip of the
Grand Trunk steamship of that name
also the club is arranging to give an informal dance for the entertainment of the
visitors the evening they are here. This
was decided upon at a meeting of the
executive committee of the club last
night, W. W. Clarke presiding. The
delegation to be sent from here is upon
an invitation extended to the club by
Mr. Hinton, general agent of the company at Winnipeg, and today two of
Prince Rupert's representatives business
men  will  be selected  for  the  honor,
The officers of the new vessel are to
hold an invitation reception on board
the new vessel at Vancouver on June 9th
and the next day she will go into commission and sail for Seattle. There will be
another grand reception there when
the new vessel Prince Rupert will start
on her first voyage north on June 12th,
with many notable officials of the com-
peny and distinguished guests among her
passengers. She will leave Vancouver on
the following day and after a stay at
this port will go on to Stewart.
The club are arranging an informal
dance for the invited passengers on the
evening of her arrival here, invitations
to which will be carried south by the
Prince Rupert delegation, in shape of
pretty cards which will be placed on the
plates of the invited directly after the
steamer leaves Seattle. This card offer
them the freedom of the new city in
addition to inviting them to dance.
Many ladies have already expressed
their willingness to do everything possible
to make the dance an enjoyable affair
for the strangers, so that their visit may
leave a favorable and pleasing memory.
It is believed the ladies will be only too
happy to take up the project with enthusiasm.
A general meeting of the club has been
called for Thursday evening, in Mclntyre
hall, to discuss other details of the plans
for the reception of the distinguished
visitors and it is to be hoped there will
be a large attendance.
Yucatan Again Afloat.
The salvage boat Santa Cruz was
spoken by the wireless off Lucy Island
at nine o'clock this morning at the
Prince Rupert wireless station. She and
the tug William Joliffe have the wrecked
steamer Yucatan in tow, bound for
Esquimalt, and are steaming at the rate
of seven knots an hour.
ANOTHER ENGINEER HAS BEEN EMPLOYED
ENGINEER CLEMENTS CANNOT DO
THE WORK ALONE.
Council Trying to Have all Information Ready for Engineer Davis
When He Arrives here in July
to Take Up the Work.
The Aldermen decided last night that
another engineer was necessary and they
gave instructions to Mr. Clements to
engage one. The Streets Committee will
also report on the advisability of securing
a third engineer to look after the water
end.
All the Aldermen were present with
Mayor Stork in the chair. The minutes
of the last regular meeting were read
and adopted.
There were no reports from co m
mittees, no petitions and no communic a
tions.
Alderman Pattullo introduced By-law
No. 5, being a by-law dealing with the
regulation of the retail liquor licenses.
He then moved that it be given its first
reading. This was carried and the by-law
was read.
Aid. Pattullo made inquiry as to the
duties of assessors. He asked if that
official would have such duties assigned
to him as collector of electric lights,
water and telephone fees. He also asked
what the salary would be.
Aid. Mobly thought the assessor
should be engaged on the understanding
that he perform any duties the council
saw   fit   to   assign   to   him.
Aid. Hilditch moved that the mayor
insert an advertisment in the papers for
three days, calling for applications for
assessor to be closed in three days.
An advertisment has already been inserted setting date on June 7th, so the
matter was dropped. It is distinctly
understood that all officials appointed
by the council will perform any and all
duties apsigned to them by the
council.
Under the head of new business Aid.
Lynch said the engineer would have to
have some assistance if it was desired to
get any business started this year. The
city engineer has been loaded up with
electric, telephone and so many other
things that it is impossible for him
progress. He said the council might
just as well face the matter now. Mr.
Clements can find lots of work for another
engineer.
Aid. Barrow said the first thing an
engineer should do was to prepare a plan
showing what the city has got. He
thought the mayor should authorize
Mr. Clements to get what assistance
he required.
Aid. Hilditch admitted that the engineer was tied up but where will the assistants be coming from. The engineers
cannot get assistance for themselves to
say nothing of getting any for the city.
Mr. Clements said that he thought
the city could secure two assistants from
the G. T. P. men who are among the
best, and he understood they would help
at a reasonable figure. He then outlined
some of the things which the engineer
has to do at once' with a typographical
map of Woodworth lake and also maps
of the townsite. If these were not secured
it would lose many thousands of dollars
later on. All the information in the city
is now in the city and the council can have
access to them if they go at it right. He
read a list of the maps that are now in the
city. The Government and Grand Trunk
have expended a quarter of a million
of dollars now for those plans.
On motion of Aid. Pattullo and Aid.
Lynch, that Mr. Clements be authorized
to engage Mr. Lucas as engineer and two
draftsmen to assist him at $150 per
month.
Aid. Barrow spoke in favor of the
motion and he suggested that the mayor
endeavor to secure authority to have
access to the plans of the G.T.P.
The motion was put and it carried.
DUMA MADE A FARCE.
Finland Bill to be Passed by Special
Order.
(Special to the Optimist).
St. Petersburg, June 4.���The debate
on the Russo-Finnish bill has begun
in the Duma and will in all probability
be passed. The measure is bitterly
resented by Finland,as it steals from that
country every vestige of government.
The Finnish Diet, which had also to pass
the bill, returned it to the Czar without
action. Its ultimate passage by the Duma
is now forecast on a vote declaring the
bill urgent. This action is taken under
the  personal instruction  of  the  Czar.
Dora Doxey is Acquitted.
St. Louis, June 4.���(Special)��� After
a 1 ong trial the jury has acquitted Mrs.
Dora Doxey, charged with the murder
of William J. Erder. Immediately upon
release she was rearrested on a bigamy
warrant. Her husband will not be tried
now for complicity in the Erder murder.

King of Spain  111.
Madrid, June 4.���(Special)���The King
of Spain is suffering severely from catarrh and pulmonary troubles. A specialist is in daily attendance and the condition of his majesty is causing the court
physicians considerable uneasiness.
Carpenters are in demand at Fort
George at $7 per day, while unskilled
labor commands $3 a day and board.
Stewart is getting ambitious and is
assuming all kinds of airs. The latest
move among the citizens is to apply for
incorporation as a town at once under the
Municipal Clauses Act and they have
engaged Lucas & Lucas as their solicitors.
Arrangements are already on foot to
carry out the plan and one of the first
things was an application to Provincial
Assessor W. M. Vickers for a certified
copy of the assessment roll. They want
particularly the value placed on the lands
and the names of the owners. They intend to get the assessment roll out and
have it ready for the council when it is
elected.
Mr. Sadler, of Stewart, representing
Lucas & Lucas, was in the city yesterday
and interviewed the provincial assessor
with the result that Mr. Soule has been
engaged to copy the assessment roll.
He will begin his duties forthwith. Mr.
Sadler returned to Stewart this morning,

THE POLICE COMMISSION.
The temporary appointment of S. A. Calkins as acting Chief of Police meets with a
measure of approval.. Mr. Calkins' ability and strength as a police officer in this
city has never had a fair test, but today as acting chief of the police force of the city
he has the opportunity of demonstrating to the council and the citizens that it is no',
necessary for them to import something from the "cent belt". Mayor Stork, before
his election, on the public platform, made the statement that he would, if elected
mayor, close up the blind pigs in 24 hours. He has stood by his statement by giving
these institutions 24 hours to quit, and it is up to him to see that recent appointments
to the police force carry out his instructions in this respect to the letter. Mr. Calkins
has the opportunity of proving to the citizens of Prince Rupert that the confidence
and trust placed in him has been handed to the right man. Blind pigs are in the opinion of the Optimist, not only places where liquor is sold in the business sections of the
city illegally, but in houses of prostitution as well. Why stop the illegal sale of liquor
on Sixth street, First, Second or Third avenues, and have it sold in the houses on
Comox avenue, at twice the price? Mayor Stork and the police commissioners are
entitled to all the praise and the support of the citizens if they carry into effect the
edict they have issued, and Mr. Calkins has the opportunity of his life in showing
if he is a strong man or a weakling, and the citizens will judge quickly and firmly.

UPRIGHT OR OUT OF JOINT.
What is the matter with Old Father Time? Shakespeare's Hamlet declared that
"Time is out of joint." Shakespeare's Prospero, on the contrary, asserted that
"Time goes upright with his carriage." It is the former who is approvingly quoted
by the Moderator of the Presbyterian Assembly, which has been meeting at Detroit. He has been telling his brother ministers that grafting, and the traffic in white
slaves, "twin vampires of civilization," have visited the whole world.
Each age, undoubtedly, has its own besetting sin, but only a pessimist will disregard the testimony of the centuries as to the age-old character of the vampire evils
with which the clergyman in question deals. The grafter and the slaver were as much
in evidence in Old Testament days as they are now. As compared with the cunning
dishonesty of the East, the grafting of the Occident is of childlike simplicity. White
slavery has always been identified with the growth of great centers of population.
The real difference between the "then and now" lies in the attitude of public
opinion. The twin vampires are the disgrace of this generation as they have been
of generations long since past, but to-day the public conscience is awakened and a
campaign of reformation inaugurated.
We rather admire the attitude which is taken by the Walkerton Telescope, which
insists upon seeing the good, as well as the bad, in its fellow beings. Commenting
upon reports of two murder trials, a murder, a suicide, and the announcement of a
hanging, all in Ontario, and appearing in the papers of a single days, it says:
The fellow with the natural grouch would say that the country is going to the
dogs. And yet, on the other hand we hear of three quarters of a million being subscribed in a couple of weeks for the protection of the young men in a single city,
the efforts being put forth for the suppression of vice, the international conferences
for the world's peace. At no time in the world's history have such missionary efforts
been put forth. Everything considered, the world's tendency is upward rather than
downward.
It is a hopeless philosophy that holds otherwise. If all the enlightment of preceding
ages has served only to drag mankind deeper in the mire, scholars, preachers, writers,
philanthropists have lived in vain.
CANADA OF THE SOUTH.
Growth   of   Venezuela   in   Political
Stability.
Those too numerous persons who affect a nil admirari attitude toward Latin America will do well to take notice
of the significance of a brief and mai-
ter-of-fact statement in the message
with which the other day President Al-
corta opened the session of the Argentine Congress. It was the stock of gold
that in the conversion caisse amounted
to 201,653,000 pesos, or $194,595,145
means that Argentina stands fourth
among the nations of the world in the
amount ot gold reserve, those surpassing her being France, America and
Russia. That is a remarkable financial
standing for the austral republic to enjoy, and it is a fitting circumstance of
the celebration of that country's 100th
anniversary of independence, which occurs next month.
But Argentina is in many���we might. .
say in all���respects a remarkable country. We are not sure that among all
the lands which Sir Henry Maine half
pityingly and half contemptously and
altogether despairingly called the
"mongrel republics" there was down to
half a century ago one which was more
unpromising than the United Provinces of the Plate River. The incessant
bickerings and wars among those loosely confederated states went far to justify Bolivar's pessimistic fear that in
freeing South America from  Spain  ha
had "ploughed the sea". All the faults
of all the others were to be observed
there, with few of their virtues. In
a whole century Argentina has produced not a single chief of state of
commanding rank, comparable, let us
say, with Bolivar or Diaz. The most
conspicious of them all was Rosas, and
he as a dictator ranked far below
Francia and Lopez.
Yet Argentina has grown in political
stability and enlightment and in material wealth until it is the foremost
state of South America. Nor should
it be difficult to discern the secrets of
that growth. The unification of the
provinces into a nation, fifty-seven
years ago, was the chief political reason. A polyglot and polychrome nation,
it knows no racial or color lines. There
is ready assimilation of aliens, there
is equality, and there is no race suicide. If to these things we add an extensive and varied domain, rich in
many natural resources, with the best
climate in all the Southern Hemisphere,
we shall have completed the great
outline of Argentina's grounds for
great success. "The Canada of the
South" that country has been called,
and it deserves the name.

Victoria has gone wild over the
fine work of Moulton at first base. He
is a former University of Californis
player. It was in Victoria that the
famous Hal Chase got his start.
Soccer football is becoming a very popular sport among the students of Leland
Stanford University, as Over fifty remained in the squad during the whole
season, and soccer games were in order
at  all times of  day.
Ray rlarroun, of Chicago, won the two
hundred-mile Wheeler and Schebler auto
trophy contest at the Indianapolis
speedway last week with the Mar-
mon Wasp in the remarkable time of
2 hours, 46 minutes and 31 seconds, an
average of 72 miles an hour.
Batting is my name, kid, my middle-
name is Hit; so feed me with a fast

and other fellera are better known

kiddo, and watch me soak the pill; I bet
my streak of batting will make you feel
quite ill. For the terrois need my hitting
to cop the game today, an' I must clean
the bases in the good old-fashioned
way.
Frank M. Gray, president of the
Edmonton baseball club, has notified
President Eckstrom, of the Western
Canada league, that unless Baxter and
Olson are reinstated immediately the
Edmonton club will withdraw from the
league. This is the aftermath of the trouble with Umpire Longenecker. The Edmonton officials held that the umpire
has no power to suspend a player beyond
I he game in which an o-fence occurs, as
Baxter and Olson out of the game the
tepm would be very seriously crippled.
Jem Driscoll, the English lightweight, has issued a challange to
fight Ad Wolgast, the lightweight
champion. Driscoll announced that he
is ready to post $5000 to show good
faith. Driscoll says he will fight at
133 pounds and is willing that the
bout shall go cither ten or forty-five
rounds. He wants the date set about
three weeks from the time for his
meeting with Abe Attell. This puts
Driscoll in the position of challenging
the lightweight championship of the
world while he is preparing for a fight
with the featherweight champion of the
world.
Naughton, the fistic expert of the
the San Francisco Examiner says of
Jeffries: One of the questions most frequently asked is : "How has Jim Jeffries come along with his training?"
The answer, I take it, should be "Very
well, indeed." Jim has thrown his whole
heart and soul into his work and has
proved a good many things. First of
all, he has maintained his proper
proportions without incurring any of
the ills prophesied if he attempted
such a wholesale reduction of flesh
after several years of inactivity. In the
next place, he has proved that he retains
his old-time strength and endurance
and that his wind has no flaws in it.

HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONS.
History of the Title  Since Jeffries
Resigned it.
The history of how the heavyweight
championship title has changed hands
since Jeffries gave it up because he
could find no one who cared to face
him is interesting at thos eime. Jeff
retired the undefeated champion of the
world after knocking out Jack Mun-
roe in San Francisco August 26, 1903,
in four rounds.
Jack Root and Marvin Hart met in
a finish fight for the vacant title in
Reno, Nev., July 3, 1905, Hart winning
the battle on a knockout in the twelfth
round. Hart, on January 15 following
put away Pat Callahan in Butte, Mont.,
in two rounds. He forfeited claim to
the title when he was bested in a twenty-
round decision fight by Tommy Burns
in Los Angeles on February 23, 1906.
Burns won a number of unimportant fights before he gained a decision
over Jack O'Brien in Los Angeles November 28, 1907. He next put away
Bill Squires, of Australia, in one round
on   July  4,   in   Colma,   Cal.
Burns then went to Europe, where
he knocked out in succession Gunner
Moir, London, December 2, ten rounds;
Jack Palmer, London, February 10,
1908, four rounds; Jem Roche, Dublin,
March 17, 1908, one round; Jewey
Smith, Paris, April 18, 1908, five rounds,
and Bill Squires, Paris June 13, 1908,
eight rounds.
Having disposed of Hart, who
claimed the American title ; Gunner
Moir, the claimant of the English
championship; Squires, champion of
Australia, and Jem Roche, champion
of Ireland, Burns was at last hailed
as champion.
From France Burns traveled to
Australia. He disposed of Bill Squiies
for the third time, knocking him out
in the thirteenth round, in Sydney on
August 26, 1908. Burns then put away
Bill Lang in Melbourne September 2,
in six rounds.
Then came his battle with Jack
Johnson. Johnson won a knockout,
or���to be more exact���won thru police interference, the police jumping
into the ring to save Burns from further punishment and whai appeared
to be a complete knockout.

H. P. WILSON, Manager, Prince Rupert Branch.
Vancouver, B. C, May 28���Mackenzie and Mann have suddenly become
important factors in British Columbia
development. Before the signing of
the agreement with the local government for the construction of a line
of railway across the province, a continuation of the transcontinental line
which they are establishing, little was
heard of that well-known firm of railway builders in British Columbia, but
since then they have been more than
ordinarily prominent. It was known
by a few that Mackenzie and Mann
were interested in the Fraser River
Lumber company, which lately disposed of its assets to the Canadian
Western Lumber company, but they
were silent factors in the capitalization. With the formation of the new
company, however, not only the names
of Mackenzie and Mann appear as
prominent directors, but the name of
D. B. Hanna, third vice-president of
the C. P. R. also figures. The latest
district to attract more than ordinary..
attention in the province is the Portland canal, and there Mr. Mann is to
be found also.
Mr. Mann is the main mover in the
concern that is building a twenty-mile
short line for the benefit of mining
properties there, and besides that, the
syndicate which he had organized is
sending out a small army of prospectors to hunt for minerals in that part
of the province and also in south-eastern Alaska, which is close at hand,
the boundary line being along Portland
canal.
A not uninteresting story is told in
connection with Mr. Mackenzie and the
new location of Port Mann on the
Fraser river. A local railway official
who had known him in the old days,
ventured to approach him, when he
was last on the coast, as to the probable locotion of the company's shops,
etc, out here.
"Acreage on the couth bank of the
Fraser river, between Por<i Kells and
South Westminster looks good." was
the reply of silent William, when asked
where there might be a good place
to invest an odd couple of nnudred
dollars.
The man who made the enquiry
thought he knew about as much as
anybody about acreage in that out of
the way place and laughed at the
joke. Even when the first sales were
made, he did not take the remark as
a tip, but when Port Mann was put on
the map, the recollection of the conversation came to him, and he has
been lamenting ever since. When the
tip was hinted, acreage was at a nominal figure in the locality suggested,
but when he realized what was taking
place, it had jumped out of the reach
of the ordinary man.

British Columbians will find something
of direct interest in Mrs. Humphrey
Ward's Canadian novel. "Lady Merten,
Colonist." Some true things about the
making of this new land and problems
are presented by Mrs. Ward. For
the American invasion, so-called, is
referred to under a discussion of the
possibility of the Americanizing of Canada. When this possiblity is mentioned
Anderson, the book's typ'cal Canadian,
says with a touch of scorn.
"Let them come. Excejlei.i stuff!
We can absorb them. We are doing it
fast."
"Can you?" says Marietta. "They are
pouring all.over the new districts as
fast as the survey is completed and the
railways planned. They bring capital,
which your Englishmen don't. They
bring knowledge of the prairie and the
climate, wh'/c h your Englishmen haven't
got. as for capital, America is doing
everything���financing the railways, the
mines, buying up the lands and leasing
the forests. British Columbia is only
nominally yours; American capital and
business have got their firm grip on the
very vitals of the Province."
"Perfectly true," put in the lumberman from Vancouver; "they have three-
fourths of the forests in their hands."
"No matter," said Anderson, kindling.
"There was a moment of danger���twenty
years ago. It is gone. Canada will no
more be American than she will be Catholic. These Yankees come in���they turn

TOMORROW    OF    ELECTRICITY.
Machines   will   do   all   the   Work
Says Edison.
When He Put Out to Sea.
For sheer pathos, what, in a recent
autobiography, can surpass the sentence in one of Mark Twain's last letters written in the Bermudas; "There
is not another orphan so wretched, so
ruined, so forsaken, as I am. Just a
battered old derelict washing about
the wastes of the great sea, with nobody on the bridge." Was there then
no Pilot by when he put out to sea?���

In the June number of Popular
Electricity Thomas A. Edison, the inventor, makes a few predictions about
"The Tomorrows of Electricity and
Invention."
In the not far distant future, says
the Wizard of Menly Park, all the
chores of the household will be done
by electric machines and the armies
of clerks and sales people in the department stores will be replaced by
motors and slot machines. Mr. Edison says he is now at work on plans
for such a store and soon will have
them completed.
"Animal labor"���that is, human labor���must give way, he insists, before
the scientific work of the electric machine. Humane societies, Mr. Edison prophesies, are doomed to early
extinction with the positively sure
disappearance of the horse from the
streets of cities.
"For years past," he writes, "I
have been trying to perfect a storage battery and now have rendered it entirely suitable to automobile and
other work. There is absolutely no
reason why horses should be allowed
within city limits, for between the
gasoline and the electric car no room
is left for them. They are not needed.
The cow and the pig have gone and
the   horse   is   still   more   undesirable.
"A higher public ideal of health
and cleanliness is working toward
such banishment very swiftly, and
then we shall have decent streets instead of stables made out of strips of
cobblestones bordered by sidewalks.
The worst use of money is to make
a fine thoroughfare and then turn it
over to horses. Besides that, the
change will put the humane societies
out of business."
The substitution of electrical for
human labor will cut down the cost
of living to the minimum, Mr. Edison predicts, and he then proceeds to
teli how, with his rapidly perfecting
plans for "pouring" houses instead
of "building" them, the laboring man
may have a fine home for a year's
wage or thereabouts.
THE HOUSEWIFE AND THE FLY.
"Don't come into my parlor," said the
housewife   to   the   fly,
"There's   a  screen   at   every   window
and your entrance I defy;
There are microbes on your footsteps
and a crust upon your head
Which,  if not microscopic,  would fill
our hearts with dread.
"You   carry   germs   of   typhoid   and
consumption's bane,
And  our  sanitary  teachers  paint  you
crimes in language plain;
Don't come into my parlor,  and for
safety  I  would  pray
If  you  walked  into  my  dining  room
Upon some sunny day.
"There   are   seeds   of   vile   distempers
hidden in your tiny wings,
And   your   many   feet   have   traveled
over nameless filthy things;
You're a menance to our safety, you
are   powerful   tho   small,
And   the   mischief   you   accomplish
would the bravest hearts appal.
"If you enter I  have poison all prepared for you to eat,
And paper spread to tangle your
germ-laden  wings and  feet;
I  will poison, trap or smash you  if
you do not leave my door,
For   our   modern   sanitation   will   endure your calls no more."

RUMOR UNFOUNDED.
Ambassador James Bryce to Remain
in United States.
Washington, D. C, May 28.���At the
British embassy today the report that
Ambassador James Bryce has asked
to be relieved from further duty here
was characterized as a '"silly repeti
tion of a rumor already printed four or
five times."
The ambassador himself refused ad-
solutely to confirm or deny the report,
but from other sources at the embassy
the strong impression was gained that
it had no foundation in fact. Unlike
the American diplomatic service whose
members tender their resignation at
each charge of administration, the
British diplomatic service is permanent, just like the civil service employees.
Ambassador Bryce today denied that
he had in contemplation the writing of
a third volume of the "American Commonwealth", saying that the work had
been completed 20 years ago.
Since the death of King Edward the
ambassador has cancelled alle ngage-
ments to make public address at colleges

Hardships  of Tent  Existence  Told
by Peary.
"A man's first night in a canvax
tent in the Arctic is likely to be rather
wakeful," says Commander Peary in
Hampton's. "The ice makes mysterious noises, the dogs bark and fight
outside the tent where they are tethered, and as three Eskimos and one
white man usually occupy a small
tent and the oil stove is left burning
all night, the air norwithstanding the
cold, is not overpure, and sometimes
the Eskimos begin chanting to the
spirits of their ancestors in the middl
of the night. Sometimes, too, the new
man'-s nerves are tried by hearing
wolves howl in the distance.
"The tents are specially made. They
are of light-weight canvas and the
floor of the tent is sewed directly into
it. The fly is sewed up, a circular
opening in it large enough to admit
a man, and that opening fitted with
a circular flap, which is closed by a
drawstring, making the tent absolutely snowproof. An ordinary tent when
the snow is flying would be filled in
no time.
"The tent is pyramidal with one
pole in the centre, and the edges are
usually held down by the sledges runners or by snowshoes used as tent
pegs. The men sleep on the floor
with a couple of deer skins wrapped
around them. I have not used sleeping bags since my Arctic trip of 1891-92.
"The kitchen box for our sledge
journeys is simply a wooden box containing two double burner oil stoves
with four-inch wicks. The two cooking pots are the bottoms of five-gallon coal oil tins fitted with covers.
When packed they are turned bottom
side up over each stove and the hinged cover of the wooden box is closed.
"On reaching camp, whether tent
or snow igloo, the kitchen box is set
down inside; the top of the box is
turned up and keeps the heat of the
stove from melting the wall of the
igloo or burning the tent; the hinged
front of the box is turned down and
forms a table. The two cooking pots
are filled with pounded ice and put
on the stove; when the ice melts one
pot is used to warm beans or to boil
meat, if there is any.
"Each man has a quart cup for tea
and a hunting knife, which serves
many purposes. He does not carry a
fork, and one teaspoon is considered
quite enough for a party of four. Each
man helps himself from the pot-
sticks in his knife and fishes out a
piece of meat.
The Alamo ore mill in the Slocan
is to be repaired and re-operated.

A deal for a smelting invention, involving millions of dollars, and bringing fortune to a young Canadian, has been consummated, and the notices went out a
few days ago to the fortunate shareholders in the company interested calling
a meeting for the formal ratification
of the agreement.
The concern in question is the Island Smelting & Refining Company,
Limited, which has been incorporated,
and for which the charter will soon be
issued. The capital stock has been
placed at $3,000,000, of which $1,750,000
have been issued.
A number of prominent men are
interested, the executive consisting of
Messrs. W. K. McNaught, M. L. A.;
John Douglas, R. L. Cowan, John
Ford, and R. C. Wigmore, all of Toronto, and R. E. Southby, L. G. Bennett and Dr. Forrest of Port Hope.
The company controls the patents
on the process invented by Dr. Island,
formerly a dentist at the corner of
Parliament and Gerrard streets, Toronto.
He discovered the process about five
years ago, and has already secured patents in the United States and Mexico,
while applications are pending in all
other countries.
It is stated that the process will
revolutionize the smelting industry,
as it is available for treating low-
grade and refactory ores with commercial success. It has been sub-
nitted to the leading chemists of the
United States and pronounced a wonderful success, part of the treatment
being of a character of which they
had never heard.
A demonstrating plant was erected
by the original shareholders at the
corner of Florence street and Brock
avenue, Toronto where the results have
been such as to convince the most skeptical. It is shown that the metal in
all classes of ore could be contracted
with a bss of less than 1 per cent.,
and without waste, as the residue is
also made use of for commercial purposes.
The promotion of the company was
placed several years ago by Dr. Island in the hands of Mr. R. L. Cowan,
who succeeded in interesting capital,
and proved the commercial value of
the proposition. Mr. Cowan brought
the matter to the attention of Mr. D.
D. Mann, with whom he has entered
into an arrangement whereby Mr.
Mann will purchase the patent for
the entire world, providing that the
value of the process is proven beyond
doubt. Mr. Mann is now putting up
a 10-ton capacity plant in an old
building near the King street railway
barns, where a complete commercial
test of the value of the process will
be made. Should this result as favorable as Mr. Mann and the shareholders fully expect, he will pay the
company $6,000,000 for the rights
for the world. Mr,. Mann has heavy
interests in mines in Moose Mountains,
near Sudbury, in British Columbia,
and other parts of the world, and
will at once proceed to erect smelters
to   refine   their   products.
Dr. James S. Island, the inventor of
the process, is an Orangeville boy,
who has been practising his profession in the city for some years. He is
spoken of as a genius by his friends,
and has many accomplishments to
his credit in chemistry. He is said to
be the only man who has discovered
how to make fibred gold for filling
teeth.
Operations are expected to bo re
sumed by the British Columbia Cop
per Company at Phoenix in a few
days.

RUMOR UNFOUNDED.
Ambassador James Bryce to Remain
in United States.
Washington, D. C, May 28.���At the
British embassy today the report that
Ambassador James Bryce has asked
to be relieved from further duty here
was characterized as a *"silly repetition of a rumor already printed four or
five times."
The ambassador himself refused ad-
solutely to confirm or deny the report,
but from other sources at the embassy
the strong impression was gained that
it had no foundation in fact. Unlike
the American diplomatic service whose
members tender their resignation at
each charge of administration, the
British diplomatic service is permanent, just like the civil service employees.
Ambassador Bryce today denied that
he had in contemplation the writing of
a third volume of the "American Commonwealth", saying that the work had
been completed 20 years ago.
Since the death of King Edward the
ambassador has cancelled alle ngage-
ments to make public address at colleges
or elsewhere.
LIFE  IN THE ARCTIC.
Hardships   of  Tent   Existence   Told
by Peary.
"A man's first night in a canvax
tent in the Arctic is likely to be rather
wakeful," says Commander Peary in
Hampton's. "The ice makes mysterious noises, the dogs bark and fight
outside the tent where they are tethered, and as three Eskimos and one
white man usually occupy a small
tent and the oil stove is left burning
all night, the air norwithstandihg the
cold, is not overpure, and sometimes
the Eskimos begin chanting to the
spirits of their ancestors in the middl
of the night. Sometimes, too, the new
man'-s nerves are tried by hearing
wolves howl in the distance.
"The tents are specially made. They
are of light-weight canvas and the
floor of the tent is sewed directly into
it. The fly is sewed up, a circular
opening in it large enough to admit
a man, and that opening fitted with
a circular flap, which is closed by a
drawstring, making the tent absolutely snowproof. An ordinary tent when
the snow is flying would be filled in
no time.
"The tent is pyramidal with one
pole in the centre, and the edges are
usually held down by the sledges runners or by snowshoes used as tent
pegs. The men sleep on the floor
with a couple of deer skins wrapped
around them. I have not used sleeping bags since my Arctic trip of 1891-92.
"The kitchen box for our sledge
journeys is simply a wooden box containing two double burner oil stoves
with four-inch wicks. The two cooking pots are the bottoms of five-gallon coal oil tins fitted with covers.
When packed they are turned bottom
side up over each stove and the hinged cover of the wooden box is closed.
"On reaching camp, whether tent
or snow igloo, the kitchen box is set
down inside; the top of the box is
turned up and keeps the heat of the
stove from melting the wall of the
igloo or burning the tent; the hinged
front of the box is turned down and
forms a table. The two cooking pots
are filled with pounded ice and put
on the stove; when the ice melts one
pot is used to warm beans or to boil
meat, if there is any.
"Each man has a quart cup for tea
and a hunting knife, which serves
many purposes. He does not carry a
fork, and one teaspoon is considered
quite enough for a party of four. Each
man helps himself from the pot-
sticks in his knife and fishes out a
piece of meat.
The Alamo ore mill in the Slocan
is to be repaired and re-operated.

A deal for a smelting invention, involving millions of dollars, and bringing fortune to a young Canadian, has been consummated, and the notices went out a
few days ago to the fortunate shareholders in the company interested calling
a meeting for the formal ratification
of the agreement.
The concern in question is the Island Smelting & Refining Company,
Limited, which has been incorporated,
and for which the charter will soon be
issued. The capital stock has been
placed at $3,000,000, of which $1,750,000
have been issued.
A number of prominent men are
interested, the executive consisting of
Messrs. W. K. McNaught, M. L. A.;
John Douglas, R. L. Cowan, John
Ford, and R. C. Wigmore, all of Toronto, and R. E. Southby, L. G. Bennett and Dr. Forrest of Port Hope.
The company controls the patents
on the process invented by Dr. Island,
formerly a dentist at the corner of
Parliament and Gerrard streets, Toronto.
He discovered the process about five
years ago, and has already secured patents in the United States and Mexico,
while applications are pending in all
other countries.
It is stated that the process will
revolutionize the smelting industry,
as it is available for treating low-
grade and refactory ores with commercial success. It has been sub-
nitted to the leading chemists of the
United States and pronounced a wonderful success, part of the treatment
being of a character of which they
had never heard.
A demonstrating plant was erected
by the original shareholders at the
corner of Florence street and Brock
avenue, Toronto where the results have
been such as to convince the most skeptical. It is shown that the metal in
all classes of ore could be contracted
with a bss of less than 1 per cent.,
and without waste, as the residue is
also made use of for commercial purposes.
The promotion of the company was
placed several years ago by Dr. Island in the hands of Mr. R. L. Cowan,
who succeeded in interesting capital,
and proved the commercial value of
the proposition. Mr. Cowan brought
the matter to the attention of Mr. D.
D. Mann, with whom he has entered
into an arrangement whereby Mr.
Mann will purchase the patent for
the entire world, providing that the
value nf the process is proven beyond
doubt, Mr. Mann is now putting up
a 10-ton capacity plant in an old
building near the King street railway
barns, where a complete commercial
test of the value of the process will
be made. Should this result as favorable as Mr. Mann and the shareholders fully expect, he will pay the
company $6,000,000 for the rights
for the world. Mr,. Mann has heavy
interests in mines in Moose Mountains,
near Sudbury, in British Columbia,
and other parts of the world, and
will at once proceed to erect smelters
to  refine  their   products.
Dr. James S. Island, the inventor of
the process, is an Orangeville boy,
who has been practising his profes
sion in the city for some years. He is
spoken of as a genius by his friends,
and has many accomplishments to
his credit in chemistry. He is said to
be the only man who has discovered
how to make fibred gold for filling
teeth.
Operations are expected to be re
sumed by the British Columbia Cop
per Company at Phoenix in a few
days.

SUGGESTIONS FOR THE HOUSEWIFE.
A damp chamois is indispensible for
viping off picture frames that are
mameled.
Tartaric acid will remove almost any
ton rust blemish from material, and is
acellent [or removing yellow marks.
To clean ivory, brush with a soft
toothbrush, using lukewarm water.. If
ivory is discolored, use a little
alcohol.
ln mashing potatoes, it pays to heat
the milk, adding the butter to the milk,
before turning into the mashed potatoes.
There is no better way to remove egg
stains from silver than by rubbing
vigorously with a damp cloth dipped i��
alt.
If a few pin holes are made in an egg
shell before the egg is boiled, there will
be no danger of cracks in the shell.
Ii there are stains from machine oil
on a white garment, rub the spots well
lift a cloth in ammonia before washing
nth soap, and they will disappear.
Few people seem to know, when preparing dried peaches, the skins can be
easily peeled off if the peaches are
id to stand in cold water for severa
hours.
An excellent way of keeping a black
leather handbag or travelling bag in
condition is to rub it well occasionally
With milk. Wipe with a chamois until
Perfectly dry.
In cleaning bric-a-brac, it is well to
use a soft brush, so as to get into all
the crrevices where the dust is apt
Wge, The same /ilan should be followed
With cups. Otherwise it is quite impossible to get the china bright about
the handles.
H a paint brush is stiff from paint or
Wmsh, do not throw it aside as useless.
Instead, immerse it from time to time
�� boiling vinegar and soon it will be-
���� pliabk, Then wash it in warm
���oapsuda, rinse in tepid water and the
brush is ready for use.

Real Estate Notary Public
Prince Rupert is no longer "A will-be
distributing point." It is now the centre
and natural hub of a vast and very rapidly developing territory. It is a wholesale centre and the three houses already
established here are daily increasing their
business. To those men is due much
credit for they came in here when the
future of the city was in the dark and
distant future. But they had faith in the
city and in the surrounding country.
They all made a start in a small way, but
the development has been so great and
so unprecedented that all three have
plans either prepared or underway for
the erection of new and larger warehouses
within the present year. Each of the firms
will show their records and all are the
same viz, the first months business was a
few hundred dollars, while the past month
their books show a turn over of many
thousands of dollars. When it is remembered that the first warehouse was
opened only about two years ago this
expansion is most remarkable.
The firms now doing a wholesale
business  in   Prince   Rupert  are:
Clarke & Ives, grocers and produce
merchants, although the name will shortly be changed to H. H. Clarke as he has
purchased Mr. Ives' interests and that
gentleman is retiring. It was only in
June of last year that Mr. Clarke
announced that he was prepared to
cater to the needs of the grocers of
Prince Rupert and Northern British
Columbia. That month he disposed of
$500 worth of groceries and produce. In
May, the month just closed he sold
$22,000 worth of goods.
That business has truly being going
with the country. In future Mr. Clarke
will make produce his specialty.
Another firm is Stewart & Mobley,
grocers and produce merchants. They
opened a warehouse on Rupert Road
in the first babyhood of Prince Rupert,.
They too had a small output at first,
but at the present time they send out
many tons of goods valued at many
thousands of dollars. They have a big
staff working all the time and their
present quarters are not nearly large
enough for them. A new warehouse
will shortly be started on the water
front.
J. Piercy, Morris & Co., wholesale
dry goods merchants, came here in July,
1908. They put in a stock of men's
clothing, bedding, small wares, etc.,
because they knew that that class of
goods was most needed. Their judgment
proved good for today they are not only
holding their own, but they are out-doing
the firms from the south and east.
So fast has their business grown that
they have had to pack stock away in
several buildings. Their premises are
j much too small and their new warehouse
has not been started yet but will be under
way in the fall.
The wholesale men in Prince Rupert
cater to a country 350 miles by 350
miles, and this city holds the key to that
entire area. The south and east
cannot undersell them, neither can
they deliver the goods within ten
| days as soon as Rupert firms can
! although there is only a boat service here
yet. That service however, is good and it
is fast.
The districts being populated now,
outside of this city, are upon the Skeena
river to Hazelton, Kitselas, Kitsumkalum,
and Port Essington, all thriving towns
which cater immediately to mining camps
and salmon and halibut canneries. Also
to the Queen Charlotte Islands, a land
rich in coal and minerals and with a
wonderful agricultural future. The
towns there now are Queen Charlotte
City and the whaling fishery depot,
Masset and Skidegate all growing and
prosperous.
To the North there it goes a hundred
miles and more into the rich and un-
estimatable mining camps of the Portland
Canal district. The towns are Stewart,
Port Nelson, Mill Bay and other
towns up the Naas River. Then it goes
into the very fertile Bulkley and Kispiox
Valleys which are now being rapidly
settled. Wonderful though it may seem,
goods are sold from Prince Rupert to the
Southern coast towns down to Queen
I Charlotte Sound, or almost into Vancouver's own camp.
So particularly favorable is this city
situated for wholesale business that more
firms from the South are coming up
immediately to erect warehouses. It
might also be mentioned here that there
is great need for wholesale hardware,
boots and shoes, and other houses of
that class. The firms that come first will
get the cream and the others who wait
for a bigger city, will only have the milk
to fight over. Prince Rupert is the only
wholesale centre for the north. No other
district can or will ever be able to compete.

G.T.P. WHARF
A  DISGRACE TO CANADA.
Out of Date Ditch and Guns Lying
Unmounted.
"Well, this is indeed a disgrace to
Canada," was the remark overheard by
The Mail man this week as he stood on
the edge of the graving dock at Esquimalt
The speaker was a man who had traveled
considerably over the world and knew
whereof he spoke.
The reasorf for his remark was the discovery that the great British r^aval dockyard and fort of Esquimalt was but a
name, the dockyard itself of little use
in cas'e of war, and the drydock fit only
for the repairing of small merchant
vessels. The Mail man made a few inquiries and learned that the only drydock
on the Pacific coast of Canada was but
400 feet in length, 65 feet in width, and
capable of accommodating vessels of 19
feet maximum draft. Therefore it was
not only useless for the repairing of modern war vessels, but if a very ordinary
sized merchant vessel required repairing
she would have to go elsewhere than
Esquimalt dockyard for accommodation.
Such a case happened recently, so the
Mail man was informed. A steamboat
sustained injuries sufficiently serious
to make it risky for her to travel any
distance for repairs. She put in at Esquimalt but could not be accommodated,
the drydock being too small. Finally she
had to steam to Seattle, with a possibility
of not reaching that port.
"What would happen if a British fleet
were required on the Pacific to protect
the Canadian coast against a foe from
the Orient?" asked the traveled man.
"We would either have to go to the indignity of borrowing the use of American
dockyards, or the vessels would fall
into bad repair and their usefulness
would be greatly impaired. Why does,
the government at Ottawa, now that
they have taken over this navy yard,
let it lie wasting, when at a moment's
notice it may be most urgently required?"
There are forts at Esquimalt which are
popularly supposed to guard the entrance
to the Straits of Juan de Fuca and the
approaches to Victoria and Vancouver

But do they? The guns that are mounted
in the forts, altho they are of first-class
build and of the disappearing type, are
only six-inch calibre, effective to a range
of six or seven miles, beyond which a
fleet of warships could steam with perfect safety and use their heavy guns more
or less effectively on the forts. In other
words, the Esquimalt forts exist not to
protect the coast, but to protect Esquimalt harbor. During the Russian-Japanese
war, when there was a possibility of a
hostile fleet swooping down on this coast
if the Russians proved victorious in the
fight, the British Admiralty sent a number of heavy 9.2-inch guns to Esquimalt
to command the entrance to the Straits,
and a start was made to mount them in
the forts. That was as far as the work
went. The Dominion government took
over the forts, and the guns since then
have lain at the foot of the hill, useless
for any practical purpose.
Surely the time has come when Esquimalt should be restored and brought up
to date. The guns should be mounted,
the garrison increased to a standard
that would be effective in case of sudden
emergency, and a drydock should be
constructed sufficiently large to accomrr.to-
date any vessel of ordinary twentieth
century dimensions. A great navy dockyard should be built in the perfect harbor
of Vancouver. It is time that the Pacific
coast of Canada was adequately protected. It is time for Canada to awaken to a
knowledge of  the  helplessness of he
va'u'able   Pacific  shores  and   to  take
immediate steps to relieve the urgency
of the situation.���Vancouver Sunday Mail

president being Mr. A. D. McPhee of

strike is still on and likely to continue for
some time, as both sides are stubborn.
The masters say they will only import
strike breakers as a last resort and

Brotherhood of Teamsters has voted
$35,000 in support of the strike.

���are Named.
(Special to the Optimist).
Johannesburg, June 4.���It has not yet
been decided whether Lord Kitchener or
General French will be selected to inspect
the South African forces and decide upon
a scheme of defence. The scheme suggested by the Transvaal practically amounts
to compulsory service, and the government of the new commonwealth is afraid
this would be too. harsh a measure to
meet with public favor.
