Price Five Cents
THE GATEWAY TO THE INTERIOR
You know what a transcontinental railway does for a country. It makes the price of land soar up.
Itjis thc means of crenting new industries. It brings the markets of the world to the fanner where be
secures top-notch prices. And in a province like British Columbia the farmer is n man to be reckoned
with. Hc does not have to sell his produce, the other fellow comes to him. And why? Because the numerous industries in the province, the mines, the timber, and thc fisheries, etc., create local markets which
have to be supplied.
Prince Rupert the Hub of the District
Prince Rupert has sprung into its vigorous existence of today as a result of the coming of the Transcontinental Railway, the same great creative influence which is making a thriving and populous agricultural and mining district of the wide and wealthy territory tributary to I'rince Rupert. I'rince Kupert is
the hub of thot great district, the starting off place for the thousands who are pouring in to settle in its
rich valleys each year, and yet it is hardly sufficiently well realized, especially by those thousands, that
Prince Rupert is the natural, and the best outfitting and supply point for the whole vast territory of
which it is the doorway. How many incoming settlers have lost time and money, and put themselves to
much greater inconvenience through outfitting at the southern centres under the mistaken notion that
equipment and supplies are much more costly in I'rince Rupert, or perhaps even thinking that supplies
cannot be obtained here nt all. Often after all their inconvenience and outlay for transportation such incomers have realized that much of their equipment is unsuitable, while the right supplies could have been
purchased readily anil reasonably in I'rince Kupert.
As a matter of fact ���and the fact cannot be too emphatically impressed upon nil incomers-every
possible item required for the thorough equipment of settler, prospector, miner, surveyor or enterprising
pioneer-business builder bound for the upspringing interior towns along the I'rand Trunk Railway, ran
be)bought, and Imught to the very best advantage, right here in Prince Rupert.
Prince Rupert Merchants Are Progressive
Enterprising mcrchnnts who have got beyond the pioneer stage by very long nnd very up-to-dnte
strides, hnve made this (Missible. They hnve paved the way for the pioneers of the interior well knowing
thnt their return will come richly ami generously to them with the development by these pioneers of the
rich natural resources of thnt interior. Prince Rupart expects much of the superb territory tributary to
it'as terminus of the (innt Transcontinental. And Prince Kupert is doing much for the development of
that territory by furnishing through her merchants easily, efficiently, and inexpensively, the materials
and equipment necessary for the men who nre helping on the development of farm, mine or fishery.
Big Wholesale Houses to Meet The Needs
All thnl is required in the way of foodstuffs, clothing, tools, conveyances and camp equipment, can
be readily obtained at the various stores in the city. The fact thnt there exists close by the waterfront
three huge five-atorey warehouses of Messrs. Stewart & Mobley, selling foodstuffs and dry goods,
Messrs. J. Piercy Morris & Co., Belling dry goods, and Ilie Kelly-Douglas Co., selling supplies of all kinds
wholesale, to the many stores in the city and district is evidence of the truth that goods nre brought into
Prince Kupert in such large quantities as to make it easily poeetbla for Prince Kupert merchants to retail
them at prices very often oelow the cost of the same gooda in the southern cities certainly nol above tlr'
cost, nnd most certainly fnr below thnt cost plus freight chnrges. Therefore it pays the would-be settl
to outfit at Prince Rupert rather thnn nt points seveml hundred miles ferther south.
Local Merchants Understand the Conditions
One of the Important facts iu regard to outfitting in I'rince Rupert is that liere you get the advantage
of the experience of merchants who know the requirements of the distriet thoroughly, men who have
been over the ground themselves, who have equipped hundreds of pioneer pnrties nlready and who are
suonlving settlers contii-uallv. In touch regularly with the men who use the goods, these merchants of
of ours on the spot at Prime Rupert enn snve the incoming settler mnny ami many a tlollur besides much
less worry nnd vexation.
Getting the Goods Through " On Time "
Conditions of trnnsportntion of supplies for up-river points are at certain seasons irregular, and over
and ov se" ler who has unwisely purchased his supplies "down below" has suffered through the do-
"ving..fl'is consignment simply because the "down below" merchant does not  know  the best way  to

Woodworth Lake and the city.
Woodworth Luke is siiua'ed on the
mainland about seven miles north east
of Acropolis Xill. The lake is :i:ili feet
above low tide, it is from 160 to 200
feet  deep, covers about  454 acres, and
'contains an abundance of the purest
j water from a watershed of nearly ten
square mihs of mountain country with
snowy summits which you see Irom the
tow nsite.
Owing to the climatic condi ions  fo
'the   coasl   ihe   run-:,IV   from   lhc   lake
j varies from 7.7 cubic feet  per second
- in  dry seasons to  571  cubic  feet   per
second after heavy rains.    Hy building
a rock and timber dam at  the outlet
lof the lake the surface can*be raised 80
| feet.   Later on as t he city grows wealthier, a concrete dam can be constructed
| and the head of water increased if need
: be.   The supply pipe line comes through
i a rock tunnel at Woodworth Lake along
ithe mountain side till just   above the
east   end   of   Lake  Shawatlans.     Here
it descends the shore of Lake Shawatlans
which  it   follows  for  about   one  and  a
half miles thence crossing a low  neck
of land to tide-water and over Shawatlans passage a distance of MIO feet, to
thc   townsite   where   it   delivers   into
Acropolis N'ill Reservoir.
A supply main IM inches in diameter
with a dam of the proposed height
at Woodworth Lake will supply at
Acropolis Hill four and a half million
gallons per day. As this amount of
water will not be required for a number
of years it is proposed for the sake of
saving to reduce this size to Hi inches
at Eleventh avenue after passing Montre-
I al Hill. This will mean a delivery of
| two million gallons per day which is
[sufficient for a population of 60.000,
I As the city grows the supply can be
j easily Increased, and with a distributing
reservoir-on  Montreal  Hill enough  for
a population of 60,000 can In- provided.
Fire protection has been tin  primary
.object in view in planning the distribution system. A million gallons of water
���tored in tlie Acropolis Hill reservoir
would keep sixteen ordinary tire hose
streams going tu lull pre sun- for over
six hours, and the whole supply from
Woodworth Lake would remain available
for domestic use. Ii is imperative that
any parts of the proposed work which
: will improve tin- present lire protection
of the city should in undertaken at the
earliest possible moment recommends
ilu- City Engineer.    This would  mean
Ithe completion of tin Acropolis Hill
Reservoir ami the laying of the mains
covering tlie present  oppuloUS sections.
] The reservoir could be Riled from the
existing water supply and the million
gallons held in reserve for lee in ease of
lire.
The works proposed are substantial
and busting, Bays the City Engineer, and
the cost of operation and maintenance
will be as low as possible for any system.

A SPRING GREETING
After a week devoted to the strenuous task of moving our machinery and
equipment to its permanent home in the new Optimist building, our paper is
able to make a new appearance. No better augury could be found than that
we reappear on the first day of spring, with the opportunity and intention to
enter upon a new lease of life.
Until after these words are done into type it will be impossible to determine the precise character of our first appearance, but great things are planned, so that within a very little while the whole character of the paper will uu-
dergo a rapid metamorphosis. Perhaps not only the type, make-up, size and
quality of our newspaper will undergo change, but even the namt. It is intended to give the public of Prince Rupert, and the outside world who are interested in Prince Rupert, the very best paper that it is possible for money and
brains to produce. It will be a bright, breezy newspaper for the local reader,
and a publicity agent, giving the outside world reliable informationjabout
northern British Columbia.
A number of new features have been arranged which will show themselves
in a few days, additions to the plant and staff are being made, an expert] advertising service is being laid at the disposal of our rdvertisers, and "ithe Optimist will lead the way in the new campaign of publicity development'and prosperity for the Prince Rupert district.
NOTES AND COMMENTS
The folk who were up early this morning were well rewarded. The rays of
the warm sun streaming over Montreal Hill, chasing away the ^suspicion of
sharpness in the air, and lighting up the fir-covered hilltops across the harbor
made a picture to be chronicled.   Where was the Optimist artist then?
On learning that four ladies will hold up the Queen's train at the coronation
the Montreal Herald somewhat irreverently remarks that they might get Jsome
pointers from Bill Miner.
The authorities did well to show that law must be observed] in JallJ labor
disputes. Any man or number of men have a perfect right to decline ,to go|to
work whether offered 37 cents or 37 dollars an hour. That is theirjright. But
they have'no right under the law that they helped to create, tojpreventjjany
other man or men from working at a rate of pay that looks good to them.

Prince   Rupert's  famous  Are-fighting I
auto, after many delays is now completed
and on its way hitlu-i. to do duty.    In"
ilie East  it  has attracted a ureal ileal
of lU.emiiili, the tire chiefs tf the principal Ontario cities journeying lo Toron-
I in len days ago, to attend b grand public
] performance of lhe iiuio on the BtTeeta
j of the Ontario capital.
Judging by I he account R in t he Toron 11
j papers,  the engine  made  a  great  im-
I pression on lhc lirt experts and on the
I Toronto public, and proved an excellent
advertisement for I'rince Rupeit,   The
following is ihe account of the apparatus,
which  together with  a  picture of the
engine appeared on  the  front   page of
.he Toronto World of March 22.
Description of thc Engine
An auto chemical hose wagon similar
to the three which Chief Thompson has
asked the city to provide for the purchase of  in the estimates  of  the  tire1
department, ai about $8000 each, this)
, year, arrived in the city yesterday and
received a try-out.    It  has been con-1
BtrUCted   for  the   use   of   the   lire  de-j
I pan ment  in the new western city of i
j Prince Kupert, and it hits been demonstrated  for the benefits of the heads
i of tlie fire departments of a number of
Ontario cities.    This afternoon it  will
|start on its way to the growing city of
the wesl.
Chief Thompson, in company with
lhe representative of the manufacturers, took the mayor and board of control for a spin' yesterday noon, and
they made a record trip from the city
hall along Queen street to University
avenue, up the avenue to the parliament buildings, and back to the city
ball by College and Yonge streets. The
trip only took 15 minutes.
Massive, but Speedy
Tbe truck is a massive affair of Bteel
build throughout, making 7 ions of dead
weight that require an 80-ho**je-power
engine to propel. The engine is a (>-
cylinder and capable of driving lining bulk of fire-fighting apparatus along
a level stretch at 40 miles an hour
This high power also gives lhe machine
the ability Co climb hills in a manner
calculated to make a healthy horse look
pick.
Combined with this high speed is a
biction brake that instantly binds the
double back wheels antl stops ihe
iruck while ihe team would be thinking about it. These and many other
advantages are pointed out by the
chiefs, who are all enthusiastic about
the metal monster. They claim that
with the advent of these machines
there will be no more tired horses: i'i at
every man will be available at a lire,
no man needing to stay and watch frisky
horses, no horses will have to be hitched,
and no smell of the equities will annoy
the fastidious around the lire halls.
An All-Round Equipment
As well as 1200 feet of hose, the truck
carries a 4-gallon chemical tank, two
Babcock extinguishers, a 12 foot ladder, and a 21 foot extension ladder,
thus making it fully equipped to deal
singlehunded with small tires. About
len men will be required to handle it.
It is estimated that it will last from
20 to 80 years, as the daily run would
not average over 4 miles, and everything
in a fire hall is kept in perfect order. It
looks as if Toronto will have to "pony
up" the price if she would keep up with
the times.

Letters to the Editor
Chief McCarvell's Denial
The following letter which has come
to hand during the week explains itself.
In iusiice to Ex-Chief McCarvell, we
might add that the information about
the Rainbow incident was not supplied
by any present or paBt official but was
obtained in the ordinary course of
news-gathering.���Ed.
Dear Sir,���In reference to an article
appearing in your paper, dated March
the 14th, which has just come to my
notice, reporting a speech made by
Alderman Newton in the Council Chamber on the night preceding, re sending
for H. M. S. "Rainbow" or militia to
quell the imaginary labor difficulty in
tne city. He is reported as having
stated   ihat   the   secret   meeting   was
Back in the old space again after an
absence of three weeks. We couldn't
Btay out, because, no matter what it
costs, we must talk to you about our
business���must get and hold your interest. We afe enthusiastic about our
business. Ever notice that when anyone is interested in any subject or concern that he just HAS to talk about it?
That's our attitude about our business,
we Bimply must talk about it (of course
in season and in reason) and we feel,
too, that we have something worth
talking about ��� some message from
time to time that is bound to be of interest to the shoppers of Prince Rupert,
particularly to the ladies. The ladies,
as yon know, (bless 'em) do the shopping���the largest part of it���of the
world, and they have to know where to
buy and buy "right," when the different goods that the changing seasons
demand have arrived at the stores, and
so on, and it is the mission of the advertiser to keep them posted along
these lines. Whether you buy from us
to-day or to-morrow or whenever you
DO buy, we want to tell you and convince you that we are the people to buy
from. No use hiding our light under a
bushel on the chance that you'll discover it for yourself when we have the
light of this space to throw on the
screen of your mind and create therin
the association of ideas which means
that when you think of Dry Goods,
Ready-to-wear for Women and Children, Chinaware, Crockeryware, Fancy
Goods, Etc, you think of "Wallace's
ano you go to "Wallaces" when you
want anything in these lines���and find
there a good store of goods and good
service ulwaya at your command. We
have received many new things for the
spring business lately, and we'll tell
oou more about them in a day or so.
H. S. Wallace Co., Ltd.
called by the ex-Chief of Police asking
that Red Coats or the militia be requisitioned for. This statement is
absolutely untrue as I never did ask
for, or even suggest, anything of this
kind,   also   that   after   resigning   my
fusii ion as Chief of Police in your city
immediately gave this information
to the "Optimist . This is also another
of Newton's fabrications and is in my
opinion, done for the purpose of clearing
his own skirts. This matter was never
divulged by me to the "Optimist" or
its representatives, or to any other
person until after reading the malicious
statements made by Alderman Newton.
Furthermore, in view of these deliberate falsehoods made by him, I feel
in justice to myself that this matter
should be placed in its true light before
the Association, and if they should
wish to know exactly what position this
so-called friend of labor took at this
meeting in sending for the "Rainbow"
I shall be only too pleased to furnish
them with the cold facts.
Yours faithfully,
JOHN JAMES McCARVELL
Ex-Chief of Police

This advertisement clipped from the
Boston Post gives the story of the
wonderful development now going on
in Canada. Look out for British Columbia. The profits to investors in
Town lots in all Grand Trunk Divisional
and Terminal Points will astound the
world. Buy now. Ask Uncle Jerry
for price lists and full information.
LAST YEAR
REAL ESTATE OWNERS IN
Western Canada
MADE
$100,000,000
From the most accurate figures obtainable, over One Hundred Million
Dollars was made by real estate owners in growing cities and towns of
Western Canada last year. This vast
wealth was exclusive of improvements
and represented actual increase in land
values alone.
Original records gathered by the
Winnipeg Free Proas prove that in
eight western Canadian Cities the value of land alone���not counting improvements��� increased 662 per cent, for the
last five years-an annual increase of
112 per cent, for each city during the
last five years. These figures indicate
that investments in live, growing cities
in Western Canada are as sate and
sure as an investment can be, and that
100 per cent, profit each year is almost
a certainty.
THIS YEAR
THEY WILL UNDOUBTEDLY   MAKE   $100,-
000,000   MORE
You have an opportunity now to
participate in these immense profits by
being one of the original purchasers of
town lots in the Grand Trunk Pacific
addition to thc faat growing Western
Canadian cities, otherwise known as
Gund Trunk Pacific Railway Dniskn Points No. 23
WATROUS, MELVILLE, WA1NWRIGHT,
B1GGAR
The Grand Trunk Pacific offers in
these splendidly located, fast growing
Division Points and in the townsite of
Tofield an opportunity for the investor
to share in the large profits that are
sure to accrue aa a result of the rapid
and substantial growth that characterizes Grand Trunk Pacific Diviaion
Points and well located cities and
towns in Western Canada.
The Grand Trunk Pacific does not offer townsites or additions so located as
to make investments in them of Questionable value. The object in selling
these lots at the low prices at which
they arc offered is to encourage the upbuilding of these cities from which the
Grand Trunk Pacific will derive vastly
more benefit th in from the sale of lots.
Now is the time to buy. Choice lota
range from $100 upwards on easy payments of 10 per cent, cash and 10 per
cent, a month. You make your purchase direct and secure title from the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
Write for literature and make your
selection while the prices are extremely low and the possibilities unlimited.

Number twenty-three is sometimes
facetiously called the 'skidoo' number.
Some of my friends may ask why I
don't take the hint and stop these
talks. Well, if they could come to my
office and see the increased business
my office is doing since the Prince Rupert people are better acquainted with
me, they would use my methods themselves.
A friend asked Dr. Parkhurst, the
famous preacher of New York, why he
wrote for the New York American,
'that rotten sheet,' he called it. Dr.
Parkhurst said that the sheet isn't half
as rotten when he writes for it as it
would be if he did not.
My method of direct advertising tells
you clearly about my methods and
plans. 1 am not strong on frills and
pictures. Advertising space is too valuable to be wasted. Incidentally I
may add I know what good advertising
is and that is thc reason I am using it.
How about boosting Prince Rupert?
Now, altogether, let's say a kind word
about our wonderful city to at least
one friend who is deprived of the pleasure of being here in person. There is
one thing worse than knocking and
that is to be silent.
Let's shout so that everybody hears:
"Prince Rupert���thc San Francisco of
Canada."
On January 15th and 22nd, Eastern
papers on Jan. 15th, Western papers
on Jan. 22nd, our Prince Rupert Opportunity advertisement appeared in
