Aldermen Get Their Wits to Work Last Night on the Problem of Grand Trunk  Assessment.---Many Men and
Many Views.���Aid. Lynch Made Strong Stand
for the Assessment as   a   City Asset.
The letter of President C. M. Hays
Of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, in
which he offered to settle the question I
of the company's assessment for the
MSt twenty years with an annual!
payment of $5,000, brought about one
of the meal interesting of debates at last
night's meeting of the city council. It
disclosed the varying points of view
of the different aldermen, showing them
to be far from united in their ideas of
what is best to be done for the city in
the matter. The closing speeches were
much less conciliatory than the opening
speeches, due principally to the strong
attitude taken on the question by Aid.
Lynch.
Oldest Member's Advice
The debate was opened by Aid. Mclntyre, who as "the oldest member of
the council," urged that negotiations
be kept o|>en but not rushed. He
suggested that if a railway company-
were wanting to come in to Prince Rupert instead of being already here, the
city might be glad enough to make
concessions to induce it to come. The
proper thing now WW for the G. T. P.
to send down some one with power to
treat with the city. The sooner the
matter was settled the better as industries, he knew, were waiting the
settlement oi this matter to come in.
A flour milling concern had just com
municated with him from Winnipeg
regarding Prince Rupert on this very
question.
Might Work  Both Ways
The title of "The Nestor of the
Council" was bestowed upon Aid. Mclntyre by Aid. Harrow, who thought the
Premier's advice was good on this
matter. If the city levelled down with
the G. T. P. it might also level up with
its subsidiary companies who might be
considered too lightly assessed.
Was  It a Mistake!
Aid. Naden said he, too, knew of
companies and capital who were waiting
to come in to Rupert. After all there
was only "a little matter of a few millions" involved in the differences between the various ideas of the assessment. He strongly nnpacted that that
unaccountable mistake on the part
of the Grand Trunk Pacific in not
putting in an appeal against their
assessment at the proper court, was not
such a blind miRtake after all. If the
company had appealed in due form,
would it now have been in a position
to seek the intervention of the Provincial Governmant?
"Trade Land, for Taxes'"
Aid. Hilditch enunciated a plan by
which the city might barter assessment
rebatement for lands it required from
the G. T. P., in other words "trade
lands for taxes," he said. He thought
the plan would satisfy everybody and
everybody would be getting something
they wanted.
Lynch'.  Strong Stand
In an emphatic speech Aid. Lynch
declared himself considerably less conciliatory towards the G. T. P. than his
brother aldermen appeared to be. He
would approach the question as a purely
business proposition on purely bus ness
lines.
"Not for "one minute would I give
them the idea that we would grant
exemption fro twenty, for fifteen, for
ten, for five���no, nor for even one
yeur!"   He said with rising voice.
He wanted to see a new Court of
Revision appointed and regretted that
the Premier had not been inclined
towards this. I^et the city collect
I from the G. T. P. thc taxes they owed
1 the city. He did not approve of any
| system of the bartering of one value
I for another.
The principle that the city might
gladly encourage an outside railway-
company to come in did not, he thought,
apply to this question. The G. T. P.
were here.    They  were assessed.    Let

Lisbon, Nov. 4.���The new republic
of Portugal is threatened with a military revolution. The Second and Fifth
regiments today addressed a "round
robin" to Provisional President Braga
declaring that they were prepared for
an insurrection if they were not granted
the promised promotions and pensions
for helping overthrow the monarchy.
The government probably will yield.
The royalists who have adhered to
the republic demand the same rewards
as the revolutionists proper seek to
exact.
The revolutionary crew of the cruiser Sao Raphael, which bombarded
the royal palace during the revolutionary
outbreak, has been dismissed. The
crew of the cruiser Adamaster, which
also fired upon the home of King Manuel,
has refused to leave the vessel unless
the men are guaranteed a
pension of $100 a month each for
life. In order to avoid disorders it ia
likely that the government will grant
all of these demands.
There are bIbo troubles in the provinces where the people refuse to recognize
CITY  IMPROVEMENTS
City   Engineer   Reports   Sum.   Due
Contractors to Date
The city engineer reported last night
regarding the grading contracts at
present in hands for the city stating the
amounts due to the various contractors
for work to date to be as follows: Second
avenue, to S. H. Watson & Co. $2284.16;
S. P. McMordie $969.74; same contractor for Section 3, $1200; for Section
4, $3174.19. To John Viereck $229.90.
P. J. Swanson for work on Beach Place
$1674.32; Hays Cove and Eighth avenue. Mclnnes & Kelly $3872.14. Reilly
& Robarts $385.84. A. McLean for
work on Fraser street, Fifth, Sixth,
Seventh and Eighth streets, $286.76.
C. W. Tankley, piling Second street,
$197.84. The report does not mean
that these amounts are immediately
payable.
Can't Have Big Sign
An application for a large sign on the
Dawson Block extending over the sidewalk has been turned down by the
streets committee. Only light banners
can be allowed in such a position.
A petition for a 16-ft. plankway on
Sixth street lane between First and
Secone avenues was referred last night
to the streets committee.
MAY TEAR DOWN
DUNEDIN BLOCK
CITY FATHERS DECIDE ON DRASTIC ACTION
Will Give the Owner. Ten Day. in
Which to Strengthen the Structure
or It Come. Down���Claim It I.
Dangerou. to Public.
The owners of the condemned Dunedin
Block are to be given the chance of
either tearing down or strengthening
the structure to the satisfaction of the
authorities. Unless the owners do one
thing or the other within ten days thc
city will set a gang to work at tearing
down the building, charging the cost of
the tearing down operations to the
owners. It is claimed by the building
inspector that the building is a danger
to the public and liable to be blown down
in a high wind storm.
The matter came up before last night's
council in the form of a motion drafted
by the city solicitor and put by Aid.
Lynch.   It was carried unanimously.
READY   WITH   FUNDS
For That $540,000 la.ue of City Debenture.
Several enquiries from firms anzious
to finance the proposed issue of $640,000
worth of 4 1-2 per cent debentures have
been received by the city clerk, and
were read at councuil last night. The
issue is meantime in abeyance.
But Aid. Hilditch Ha. Hi. Doubt, and
They Spread to the Other Aldermen. Gurvitch'. Price. Will be
Con.idered    Further.
Can Mike Gurvitch possibly do all
the grading of Sections D and G of
Third avenue at the price he asks for
the work? That is the question that
troubled Aid. Hilditch at the city council
last nighi when the report of the streets
committee was read giving Gurvitch
these two sections as the lowest tenderer.
Aid. Hilditch calculated that Gurvitch was $10,410 below the next lowest
man on a contract of $31,000 and $6,100
below the next lowest tenderer on a
contract worth $23,000. He was $17,-
500 below the city engineer's estimate
for Section U, and $9,9-i0 below the
city engineer's estimate for Section G.
These were considerable diflerences
said Aid. Hilditch and he did not think
the contracts should be let to Gurvitch
unless the city engineer were satislied
I that he could do the work properly at
the price. If he could do it, then the
city was certainly getting badly stung
on other contracts. But Aid. Hilditch
believed that Gurvitch was only inviting
ruin by tendering so low. He did not
think he could get guarantee bonds in
any case, and thought il almost foolishness of the city to give the contrail*
to Gurvitch at all. It was only risking
a pile of trouble in taking them oil his
hands later.
Aid. Lynch in defence of the decision
of the committee of which he is chairman, said lhat if the man had put up
his cheque and made his tender fairly,
it was all right to award him the work.
He thought it a bad principle to set
up the idea that a man might quote*
lowest for work and then not gel it.
The pitiful picture drawn by Aid.
Hilditch of Mike Gurvitch rushing
headlong lo ruin over the grading of
Third avenue did not appeal to Aid.
Barrow. He probably remembered Aid.
Hilditch's peculiar aversion to names
ending with "vitch" on the city pay roll,
for he reminded the council lhat if
this particular "vitch" were liable to
reach red ruin on the job he was certainly
not going to ruin the city over the price
of it. "As a matter of fact," said Aid.
Barrow, "some of these 'vitches' maybe able to carry out the work all right."
However, Aid. Barrow was inclined all
' the same to favor Aid. Hilditch's idea
that the matter of the granting of this
contract should be held over for a day
or two, until the city engineer and
committee have looked into it further.
Aid. Naden in agreeing with Aid.
Hilditch told of a small bit of contract
work done for himself. The prices for
rock excavation had ranged between
$1.26 and $4.26 and the work was
finally done for $1.50 per cu. yd. Something might be learned to the ratepayer's advantage if Gurvitch could
carry out the work at the price however.
Accordingly the question of Third
avenue grading is delayed for a day or
two.
Section E contract, on Third avenue,
goes to E. Horrigan unquestioned by

I - THE COSY CORNER =
j     DEVOTED   PRINCIPALLY  TO  THE INTERESTS  OF  WOMEN
This is a little section of the paper, which from day to day will be devoted
I to subjects of special interest to women.   Any and all of the ladies of Prince Rupert
, are invited to contribute to its columns, and to take part in its   discussions.   Suggestions and criticisms are invited by the editor.   The hope is expressed that "The

are to provide the supper at the men's

proceeds are to go to the Church Extension Fund.
Mrs. E. A.  Woods will not receive
again until further notice.
An interesting phase of the woman
suffrage movement ia the fact that
objections to the proposition seem to be
urged quite as freely, and even more
forcibly, by women as by men. One
of the most recent and ablest of the
"amis" ia Miss Molly Elliott Seawell,
who in a recent issue of the Atlantic
Monthly deplores "the superficial and
inadequate manner in which the matter
has been discussed by both sides." She
criticizes both sides for arguing aa if
the whole revolution will be over when
a woman can walk up to a ballot box
and deposit a vote.
Anaylsing the plea of a brilliant and
prominent advocate of woman suffrage
that: "Woman suffrage stands for
sanitation and education," Miss Seawell
proceeds to pick the following flaws in
the argument. She says:
First, is the universal fallacy on the
part of the suffragists that all women
will vote alike, and will vote right.
"Second, neither sanitation nor education can be the lirst or even the moat
important object of government. Good
laws well administered, a pure and
competent judiciary, internal order, national defense, and many other things
must take precedence of sanitation and
education. Neither sanitation nor popular education was known to the founders
of the United States Republic; yet these
founders added more to the forces of
civilization than any group of sanitarians
or educators that ever lived.
"Third, neither sanitation nor education is a national affair, but both are
the business of states and municipalities.
"Fourth, sanitation and education are
already well attended to by men, and
as large a share of the public income ia
devoted to them as the people will bear."
"Suffrage" she declares, "is neither a
philanthropic scheme nor an economic
measure, but a registering machine. The
stock argument of the suffragists has
ever been, that the suffrage would
enable a woman to get the same pay
for the same work as a man. What they
probably mean by this is, that a woman
working thc same number of hours at
the same employment as a nwn should
receive the same pay. But it has been
tested, and needs no test, that the work
of women for the same time at the same
employment as men is not so good in
quality or quantity, and for obvious
reasons. A woman cannot stand physical effort and nervous strain as a man
can; nine hundred and ninety-nine
women out of every thousand go into
work with the fixed intention of abandoning it at the first possible moment;
a woman at the period of her greatest
energy is liable at any moment to make
a contract of marriage, which vitiates
other contracts; and women are less
amenable to discipline than men."
to an invitation, as is possible by the
use of the telephone, saves a hostess
much nervous strain. But at the same
time they admit that, however formal
the occasion may be, if the persona are
invited by word of mouth there is a
certain casualness which a written request can never acquire. It is as though
Dame Etiquette said, "You may, but I
wouldn't."
One strong argument against telephone invitations is the danger of misunderstanding the date. This has happened more than once on the occasion
of formal dinners, and one or more
guesta have arrived the wrong evening. That is why an invitation so
given must be followed by a written
answer, in which day, date and hour
are repeated. Such a communication
ia regarded as imperative, even though
a positive answer has been given over
the telephone.
Nor should there be any delay in
sending such a note. The person invited
should go directly from the instrument
to her desk and write the prospective
hostess, as though she were answering a
note.
If any error has been made in time,
her note, containing the hour and day
as she understands it, will receive an
immediate response from the other
woman, making right the mistake.

ABOUT THAT ASSESSMENT
With all good feeling towards President Hays and the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway, the citizens of I'rince Kupert must protest against the company's assumption lhat the city is hard upon the company in regard to their assessment.
That the company is entitled lo some consideration no one disputes. That
the assessment is s high one, most people are agreed. But to throw the onus for
the deadlock which baa arisen u|h>ii the city council is a course not warranted by
the facts.
What ia the actual position of affairs? In March 1909, two months before the
city council came into being, au assessor was appointed by the Provincial Gov-
vernment. He was not an appointee of the city council, which for two months
after his appointment did not come into being. His assessment rolls were completed
and handed over to the registrar on March 31st, over two weeks before the council
was elected. To suggest that the council is in any way responsible for the fixing
of the assessment is unwarrantable.
What then was the council lo do with the assessment they inherited? From
their own point of view as trustees of the people they had no quarrel with it. A
Court of Revision was held in due course to hear assessment appeals. The
company apparently acquiesced in the assessment for they allowed the court to
end its business without entering an appeal. What were the council to do? No
one would suggest that it was their business to enter an appeal on behalf of the
company even were they clothed with the power so to act.
It cannot be too clearly understood that in this matter the council could
not take the initiative.   It would have !>een a fine piece of presumption on their

Forty tons of high grade silver ore is
ready sacked on the ground of the Sunrise group of claims on Nine Mile mountain. Twenty tons more were in sight
for sacking when the snow came on
and overtook the packers. The snow
stopped operations temporarily but
camps are being built and it is intended to carry on the work on these
claims during the winter in spite of the
snow.
This is the latest report regarding the
Sunrise group brought down by Chas.
O'Neill who has had charge of the
group all summer. He is now in Prince
Rupert, having come down river part
of the way by canoe.
Of the Silver Cup claims Mr. O'Neill
speaks very highly. "I have seen them,"
he says, "and they are undoubtedly
beyond the pros|)ecting stage. The Silver
Cup is a mine. It is a mine in which
the values run higher than those of
the St. Eugenie at Moyie, H C, and I
consider the Silver Cup will rival and
perhaps surpass the St. Eugenie as a
profitable producer.
"I was very close to the Lead King
group," said Mr. O'Neill, "and actually
examined about 2,500 feet of this property. The silver was plainly in sight
right on the surface and I could follow
it along for the whole distance. They
have eight men working there for the
winter, and should have something
good showing by spring. I may say
that as far as surface showings go, there
is nothing to beat this on the mountain.
"That latest strike of the Harris boys���
the American Boy, on the west slope of
Nine Mile mountain���gives a magnificent showing. The ore is cube galena
of values running between $90 and $100.
There are four distinct leads, from one
foot to three feet wide, and showing
these values, all well down in the timber
about six miles from Hazelton.
"About 400 feet on these claims have
been stripped and the operations show
that the coarse galena changes to a
finer grain the farther down they go,
which indicates a higher run of values.
I consider the American Boy a particularly promising pro|>eity.
"About the Hudson Bay mountains
I may say that I have heard reliable
reports of the very best regarding this
district. There are some splendid
pro|>crties giving magnificent showings
there. Already several bonds have been
taken out on properties there, at good
prices, by men who know what they are
doing, and next year will see big things,
doing on these properties."

In all probability the people of Prince
Rupert will have the pleasure of seeing
the first of the Canadian naval fleet to
reach the Pacific coast at a very early
date, as the Canadian cruiser Rainbow,
which reached Esquimau from England
on Sunday, is to protect this coast from
the American fishery poachers as an
important part of her work. The fisheries
of British Columbia are estimated to be
worth some twenty-five millions annually, and with the present protection
afforded by the government against the
depredations of poachers the latter
annually obtain many million dollars
worth of fish.
That better protection was needed is
shown by an article written by Britton B.
Cooke, the representative of the Toronto Daily Star who accompanied Sir
Wilfrid Laurier on his recent visit to
Prince Rupert. He hits the Government steamer Quadra, which is well
known in this harbor, pretty hard, but
not without some truth. In the course
of this article he writes:
She looks like a man-eater, but then
she can do only the eight knots, and
that is the first of the tragedy. It is
breaking an honest skipper's heart.
The engineer is risking wrecking his
boilers and his soul every time she tries
���and cannot. And the gunner mopes
over her one little brass cannon; pets
her and polishes her and oils her with
sewing machine oil till the crew is af
~7
They are no small fry, these British Columbia poaching vessels, but
are agents of a powerful corporation
in the land of corporations, the United
States. They obey the masters of the
Fish Trust. The Fish Trust has made
them swift and has given them the
Marconi machine, by which one warns
the other of the police boat's approach,
and with a showing of white petticoats
under the stern and the wheel hard over,
they get out of it, swiftly, for the open
sea, while the Canadian ship drops tears
from her nose as she sloshes into the sea.
Probably one day she discovers a
poacher hovering near the forbidden
line. She watches him, scouts all his
movements, and he, leading her on
probably for the whole day, sends
ribald messages by his wireless to the
other poachers: "Have got the old
battleship watching me.   Fish like !"
Whereupon the other poachers fish
with a will, and haul out the honest
Canadian halibut to be taken to Seattle
and fried by Yankee housewives in New
England.
And this is the final cruelty of the
thing.
One day in the narrow channel between two islands, the "battleship" saw
a poacher sneaking down the lane. It
was in indisputable Canadian waters,
not three miles wide.
Skipper passed the word to the engineer;    engineer   swore   lovingly,   and
raid he may develop a mania and lose the gunner produced his sewing machine
his Witt some day. But it is of no|0'| and '���ted th* -'-tie old cannon to

She is only wood, but she has a
lovely bow, with an aggressive cutwater like the lower three-fourths of
the letter "S". Her funnel sits low
and has a rakish slant. Her foremast
gives her a grave bold front. Her decks
are white as holy-stone can
make them, and they have painted her
a dull steel grey, so as to help poachers
in Canadian waters, and she do, with
only eight knots an hour, when the
Pacific comes rampaging across Queen
Charlotte Sound, and half a hundred of
the sneaking beggars are forever sailing
rings round her and making unholy
American jokes about her by their
wireless equipment? They say she
"waddles" and call her "The Battleship"���which is a galling insult for a
respectable vessel of the Department of
Marine and Fisheries, and, besides, she
has not any wireless and she simply
can't help her eight knots an hour.
The half a hundred are American
poachers in Canadian waters and she
is the Government's representative, stationed outside Prince Rupert to catch
the sinners. Last year the halibut
catch in the Canadian Islands and off
the coast was 35,000,000 pounds, and
out of that 26,000,000 are alleged to
have been taken by the American poach-
res, the fellows the Government vessel is
set to catch. But she can't catch them,
and she knows it, and the whole coast
knows it, and the poachers know it, and
that is where the shame comes in. It
would break the heart of any ship.
Day after day she does her best.
The skipper takes her, sneaking, catlike, into unexpected places on the
hunt for poachers. The chief engineer polishes her engines and fills the
oil nips; and he talks violence to the
stokers till they love him. The gunner, for practice, draws beads on imaginary poachers, and rubs the cannon down with chamois. But it counts
for nothing. For they only see the
heels of the quarry beating out beyond the three-mile limit which the
International law allows, and where
they can't be touched. It is written
in the book of Vancouver, where she
is registered, that she can do so many
knots and no more, while the poachers
are good for about twice as much, and
can warn one another by wireless,   .
"Fire!" he whispered to the gunner, and
the little old brass gun coughed a bit of
lead across the American bows.
Never a bit of heed did the Yankee
show; never turned an eyelash.
Skipper got red about the ears at
that insolence.
"Fire again," says he, after a due
pause, "and get his mast this time.
"Aye, aye sir," said the gunner and he
prepared.
Down below the engineer was petting each valve and coaxing each bit
of straining steel. The stokers heaved,
the boilers hummed, and the shaft
took the last ounce of expansion out of
the steam till the thrustcollar came near
getting too hot, and the engineer opened
a little more cooling water on her and
listened hoplessely. He knew by the
valves that she was doing her eight
and no more. Outside her skin he
could hear the Pacific sloshing past at the
same old gait.
Above, the gunner calculated his
distance and the wind. He allowed
for the speed of two vessels and the
pitch, and then he fired. And the
poacher's foremast pitched over the
side.      s>
She heaved to, humbled suddenly.
Her captain and her cook stuck their
heads out and threw up their sneaking hands, so to speak, for mercy.
And they received it. That was
what almost finished the tragedy. For
it cost over $600 to tow her and her
heavy cargo to Vancouver and carry
out ths departmental routine and
in the end the poacher paid
a fine of about $100.
Of course there is an explanation
but that does not save the captain
or the engineer or the gunner. They
never say a word. They never tell.
Only the dreary monotony of the departmental reports officially confirms
the story. But the Government knows
that a question of international law
hangs in abeyance and that It would
not be wise, by the imposition of drastic
measures on the poachers, to bring
matters to an undiplomatic crisis. They
have created the Canadian navy, and
the Rainbow and her aids will do what
the present vessel just now cannot do���
overawe the poachers.   But It is hard

THE CHAVEZ EXPLOIT
Some time ago a dauntless soul went
soaring o'er the snowclad Alps, and folk
who saw his pinions roll had tingling
feelings in their scalps. He landed on
the other side upon a cruel heap of
stones; and shortly after that he died,
a poor bruised mass of broken bones.
Herioc soul! Had I the fire of Austin,
I his praise would sing! But when I
need it, my old lyre is sure to have a
busted string. To tell the truth, that
brave man's deed does not enthuse me
worth a dam; I'd rather write a humble
acreed about the man who paints the
barn. A man may fly to beat the Dutch,
across the Alps, across the sea, and not
accomplish half as much as some plain
guy who plants a tree. Some aviator
risks his neck, defying gravitation's
rules: but let me praise the human
wreck who hitchea up a span of mules.
For some gaudy men aad gaudy deeds
the bards will always twang their lyres,
but who'll supply the soulful needs of
those who light the kitchen fires?

NOTICE
To Our Customers
These two firms have acquired a
piece of land for townsite purposes
in the famous Pleasant Valley (a valley
within the greater Bulkley) on the line
of the G. T. P. Railway, about thirty
miles east from Aldermere, and eighty-
five miles from Hazelton, at the junction
of the Bulkley and Buck rivers. It
is the natural townsite of Pleasant
Valley, which is one of the richest
valleys and contains some of the best
land in the interior of British Columbia.
The land in the valley is all taken
and the greater portion settled on. The
trail to Francois, Fraser and Olosa
lakes runs within a mile of the townsite, I tary.
At a meeting held in the Mclntyre
hall last Sunday it was decided to
organize a Young Men's Hebrew Association in Prince Rupert, its object
bieng for the physical, social, and
intellectual betterment of the young
men of this city.
There are at present some forty Jews
here nearly all of whom attended the
meeting and enrolled themselves as
members. Judging by their enthusiasm
it is evident that the association will
prove a success.
There are Young Men's Hebrew
associations in New York, Detroit,
Montreal, Winnipeg, and Vancouver. It
is intended to run the Prince Rupert
association on simliar lines to those of
the Y. M. C. A. A Board of Directors
