: place, and in the second to see what
could be done in the matter of appropriations to assist the new town. He
said the delegation represented citizens
'who were inclined to think the provin-
' cial government had not done as much
as it really ought for the new town and
, district, yet they believed that if the
! facts were placed before the premier
'they would undoubtedly receive better
i treatment.
"The   government,"   he   said,   "has
drawn a good deal of money from the
new  district   and   has   put   very   little
back, and we hope by a complete showing
[of  the  facts  to  the premier and  our
member,   Mr.   Manson,  to  get  a  fair
' show.   We have had a great deal granted
1 to us by the Dominion governcmnt.   We
have the wharf approach anil we have
the telegraph  line being  put  in.    We
think   this   should   be   an   inducement
for the provincial Government to come
'through.
"We are sorry that the premier could
I not find time to pay us a visit, so that
i we could give him a good idea of what
1 we have in our district, and upon which
! showing the governcmnt would be able
;to put out money that must necessarily
' increase its revenue from the district.
"We shall lay our case before the
! premier on Wednesday afternoon and
| have confidence that what we lay before
' him will receive his careful considera-
| tion."

Prince Rupert, B.C. 7|)tf
had been discoveries of rich coal lands
at the northern end of the Queen Charlottes. Johnston had been a miner and
prospector for years; he knew the north
loo. Consequently, he was commissioned
by his associates to take a crew of experienced stakers and make investigations. A small book might be written
truthfully about the adventures the
stakers had, for looking up new coal
fields in the wild north is not as comfortable a game as croquet on the green.
One of the first instances was a narrow-
escape from drowning during the voyage
in :���. gasoline launch, to Ihe island. The
parly could go neither forward nor back,
and finally landed at great peril in a
cloud <;f spray, the aftermath ot one of
ihe greatest si onus of a decade.
Eater on Johnston alone was up
against a still proposition. He had no
big boat to work with, and ordinarily
his "stunt" would have been thrown
over by the average prospector. Johnson wits al Masset Inlet; thirty-eight
mili-s away, across a stretch of tbe open
Pacific, where some properties' which he
wanted lo stake for ihe syndicate. Others who were Interested didn't bother
to keep track of Johnston's movements.
They didn't think he would try to make
those northern properties. Johnston's
best available craft was a sixteen-foot
"dugout," owned by a Siwash. When
he made up his mind to go the Indian
begged him to give up the idea. Johnston's insistence prevailed, however, and
leaving the Indian behind and taking a
twenty-day outfit with him, hi- covered
the thirty-eight miles of nasty sea,
loyed with death a dozen times, staked
his claims, and came back.
When Johnston and his crew  finished
I heir work, they had slaked out for the
syndicate 48,690 acres of coal land which
I is  saitl   to  he  among  the  best   in   the
world.    Then Johnston came to  Prince
: Rupert   and   paid   Ihe  licenses.     Whin
I Ihe report of tbe sinkers was turned in,
n portion of it read:   "Your large tract
least of Masset Inlet and south of Dixon
j Entrance, is of a gentle rolling nature,
I with   eyerylhing   in   place.     Old   coal
miners are of the opinion that   we will
j find  the largest  tract  of unbroken coal
lands on Ihe Pacific Coast.    It has also

The Optimist
DELIVERED TO ANY ADDRESS
IN SECTIONS 1, 5 AND 6
The Manitoba Free Press says it
'is highly probable that in a few
years from now certain eastern newspapers will be heartily ashamed of
their- present attitude towards the
Hudson Bay Company. When that
day comes a resurrection of some of
their gloomy forebodings will be as
little pleasing to them as are to-day
certain well-known utterances anent
the Canadian Pacific Railway to those
who made them thirty years ago.
The project of a railway to Hudson
Bay has already developed to such a
point that opposition to it has attained
a humorous aspect. From many unexpected quarters are coming incentives to hurrying the line to completion
and factors, hitherto unconsidered, are
being discovered arguing for the railway's successful Operation. There has
just arrived, for instance, from Montreal, a despatch stating that as soon
as the line from the l'as to the Bay is
completed, a syndicate of British capitalists is ready to establish a Transatlantic line ol steamers north of the
present ocean routes, and having its
western terminus at either Fort
Churchill   or   l'orl   Nelson.
That private capital should be ready
and  even  anxious to establish such  a
line is no very remarkable thing, when
one  recllects that  for over 200 years
the  vessels  of  the   Hudson Bay Company have  ban  plying on  this north
Atlantic route.   The reasons tor assuming that  as    soon     as      a      railway
runs to the Bay it will be utilized to
the   limit   of   climatic   conditions   for
purposes   of   trans-Atlantic   trade   are
:overwhelming.      The   building   of   incline,  however,  must  necessarily be, to
some  extent,   a  work   of   faith;     but
such   was  the  building   of  the   Cana-
'. dian  l'acilic, and such is the building
\ of   the   National       Transcontinental.
' Such, in (act, hus been the building of
I great   pioneer   works   the  world  over.
I Canadians, up to the present, have not
i shown    themselves    to l>e    men    and
i women of little faith.

Few Survivors of Light Brigade Are
Mostly Dependent on Charity.
There are believed to be only thirty-
two survivors of the rank and file who
took   part   in   the   historic   charge   of
Light Brigade at Balaclava, and ol these
twenty-two  are  in  necessitous circumstances.    The oldest is X6 years of age,
and but (or philanthropic effort he and
his companions would  have had  their
last days overshadowed by want. At u
moment when the thoughts ol the nation
have  been   fixed   once   more  upon   the
'Crimean campaign by the death of Miss
* Florence     Nightingale,  the  need     for
'money to aid these old heroes will assuredly not be allowed lo exist for a single
I day.    It is thirteen years aince Mr T.
111.   Roberts  established   the   Balaclava
1 Light   Brigade  Survivors   Rebel   Fund.
At the banquet then held 74    men at-
1 tended, and it was discovered thai several  of  them  were S|iending  their  last
days in workhouses   forgotten and neg-
jIdected.
In the intervening years more than
half these heroes have gone to their rest,
and it is a duty which the nation owes
to itself that none of the survivors shall
be again permitted to need any of the
simple comforts which can add a solace
to their last days. The work of aiding
these veterans, it need hardly be added, hiiB lost a sympathizer and supporter  in   Miss  Nightingale.
The money which goes to these neglected heroes is well spent. They are
sent weekly pensions by post, nnd when
at length the "Last. Post" sounds each
of the old men receives a decent funeral.���London   Daily   Telegraph.
MASQUERADE
YOUNG PEOPLES DANCE A GREAT
SUCCESS
A Medly of Brilliant and Charming
Costumes Mazed in Merriment at
the Rink. "The Optimist" and
"The Baby City" cleverly Represented.
The Masquerade Ball held under the
auspices of the Prince Rupert Young
People's Dancing Club lust night in the
Roller Skating Rink was a great success.
Fully three hundred were present, onlookers and dancers. About fony couples
appeared in clever costumes of various
styles and brilliant coloring and when
dancing was in lull swing in the gaily
decorated and brilliantly lighted rink
the seme was a merry one, the music of
the Wariitter Orchestra adding to the
festivity and pleasure of the dance.
A prize of skining admission tickets
was offered and won by means of numbered tickets issued to the dancers and
afterwards drawn for. The lucky number 71 was held by W. O'Neill.
Conspicuous among the numerous
charming costumes was "The Optimist"
cleverly designed dress in a dainty
scheme of pink, with u coquettish
cocked hat bearing ribbons with the
title of the "Prince Rupert Optimist"
printed in black upon them. Pages of
The Optimist wers effectively displayed
diagonally upon the skirt, and the
wearer, a pretty brunette, looked us
live as the paper her costume represented
The brilliant medley of costumes
blended with each other merrily in the
dance. Here a lull red Indian befeatb-
ered and in war (mint, danced with a
laughing Soubrettc, there a husky
Hobo paid his addresses to a frolicsome
Folly in (rill and furbelow. The Queen
of the Fairies was there in silver rrown
and sparkling drapery. The Toreador,
and the day (iitana whirled through the
maze of the dancers. There were Two
Little OirlH in Blue (only one was a
roguish youth cleverly attired to defy
detection), and a bevy of other charmers
charmingly costumed.
Among the men's dresses that of
"Prince Rupert, The Baby City" waa
exceptionally clever und comical. The
!'baby" was one of the biggest boys on
the lloor, und in his infantile costume
with capacious feeding bottle und let citing bonnet he fairly cuptured the girls!
There were baseball players, niggers,
sailors und clowns galore among the- men
und u lively evening was s|>ent from
stutrt to finish.
A pretty interlude was the clever
exhibition of Highland Duncing in
costume by Miss Gray, the musicul
accompaniment of the Messrs. (iruy,
senior nnd junior, and songs contributed
during intervals in the dancing were
heartily appluudcd.
Mr. L. Warren acted efficiently as
floor master, and the dance WM u great
success.

OUR GREAT MINERAL WEALTH
Professor Miller, of the Ontario Department of Mines, gave us something
to think over the other day when he pointed out that Mexico and the United States
had produced minerals to the value of $:i,000,000 per mile of their area in length,
and made the deduction that there was no reason why Canada, with lb'OO miles
of the same Cordilleran range of mineral formation extending through British
Columbia and the Yukon, should not record a similar achievement. "At present,"
he said, "we have the greatest undeveloped mineral territory in the world, offering
the greatest opportunity to capitalists and prospectors."

When the police are called on by the public school board to look after the
school boys it is high time the parents of this city sat up and looked to their children.
The school days are the most critical in the period of any life and if parents cannot
keep their boys and girls under control and hold them in proper restraint then
they arc not lit guardians or good citizens.
It is well known that the average boy of Prince Rupert has too much liberty
on our Streets, He is usually bold and sometimes bad. He has more spending
money than many men in other cities and ibis affluence seems to give him a freedom
which boys in other cities do not possess. The public school teachers now complain
that owing to the night-roaming of the boys that many of them are unlit for their
studies.   The police commission have been called upon to take some action.
OttS does not need to go to the school to realise thai the very young and very
impressionable youth of the city s|iend maney hours on the streets that ought to
be spent in bed. It can he noticed any night by a casual observer. There is only
one outcome many ruined lives. The appeal to the police is a deliberate rebuke
to the parent.- who permit it.
Neglect of the boys is criminal and it is to be ho|>ed the home authorities will
not wait for the public authorities to take action. Protect your boys from the folly
of following their own will and temptations.

Like u 1h>H from the blue, has come
anionipl us a new wonder of the world.
The Colossus of Rhodes, and the Pyramids of the 1'huroe.s, sink into iusi|����
nilieence beside this most wonderful
discovery of the twentieth cenlury.
From the frozen wilds of the fur
nori 11 have been brought human remains,
of prehistoric times, which will startle,
the civilized world.
What the public are now offered an
opportunity of seeing, is not a crumbling
skeleton, nor a pile of mouldering bones
and hair, but the perfect body of a
little ancient man, preserved through
countless centuries, by some unknown
agency.
There is no horror in the sight of this
"Mummy."
I'erfecl as the specimen is in every
del ail, the special or will feel only
unbounded interest and wonder.
Several scientific men have seen the
body. Dr. Charles A. Kggert and Professor K mean I of tho University of
Washington, both expressed the greatest
interest. The former, with the quick
perception of the successful medical
man, noted anil summed up the cardinal
|K)ints of interest. Dr. Kggert is of the
opinion thut i lie ���.���nan could huve been
neither u North American Indian, nor
a nulive of Japan. The texture of the
hair shows this.
The Professor, whose authority on
subjects of antiquity is unquestioned,
gave it as his opinion that the man might
huve lived live thousand years ago.
Favored indeed are wc who have an
opportunliy of seeing this relic of a dim
past uge, before the purse strings of
the mighty are loosened, und it is lost
to the view of plebinn eyes, and safely
housed in the private musuem of some
millionaire.
Mr. D. H. Melniies is to be congratulated on having- secured such u
valuable specimen, us it represents a
fortune to him escepiully if he goes over
lo England and travels through Kurope.

Since September 1, 1908, when provision was made for the grant inn of
pre-emption and purehased homestead
entries, and July 31, last, 40,844 preemptions and 2,926 purchased homesteads have been recorded lit the western land ollices of the Dominion Government. This represent! a prospective
revenue of $21,009,600, exclusive of the
interest which will be accruing to the
government during the time thai entrants are earning the title lo heir
holdings.
This inlormation, which is made
public in the report of the Department of the Interior just issued, should
comfort, at least to some extent, those
timid souls in the east who are wringing their hands over the criminal extravagance of the government in
spending millions in building a railway to Hudson Bay.
The $21,000,000 already in sight from
the sale of pre-emptions; the millions
that will accrue as deferred interest;
and the many additional millions that
will come into the Dominion exchequer
from the sales of the remaining preemptions are all ear-marked to be
spent  in the construction of the road.
In submitting the law providing for
the sale of pre-emptions, the government made it quite plain that its purpose was to make provision for the
building of this road. "I am insisting
on the pre-emption provision," said
the Minister of the Interior, speaking
in the House of Commons, June 23,
1908, "as a means of ensuring the
early building of the railway to H
son Bay." And again, in the same
debate: "We believed that by that
provision we would be enabled to raise
a fund that would meet the responsibility to be undertaken because of
the  railway   to   Hudson   Bay."
Ample funds from this source for
the building of the road are now in
sight. Our friends in the east need
not worry about the cost of the railway. They will not have to meet it;
nor will it be charged to posterity by
means of an addition to the public
debt. The West will pay for the road,
outright, by the sale of lands.
As the West is to pay for the road it
holds, not unreasonably, that it should
be consulted in the building. It does
not want its millions given to a corporation as a bonus for building a road
which will then become its property.
It desires a railway, built by public
funds, which will remain in perpetuity
a publicly-owned highway to the
Northern   Sea.

ENGINEER AND
GLEANER MINES!
TWO OF RICHEST PROPOSITIONS !
IN ATLIN
Splendid Showing Made by the Most
Northern Mines of This Province���
Milling Ore Running Thousands of
Dollars to Ton.
Victoria, Oct. 26.���That the Gleaner
Mining end Milling company, Atlin, li.
C, is one of the richest quartz propositions of the north;   that the Engineer
which  adjoins  it  is just such  another
j find, and that both the hydraulic and
I placer miners of the Atlin district have
I done  exceptionally   well   this   summer.
|is the news which Mr. M. H. McCube,
| proprietor of the Royal hotel, Victoria,
gave in an interview yesterday afternoon.
He has jest returned after spending the
i summer superintending development on
the Gleaner, in which he is interested.
Mr. Mct'abe is enthusiastic In his
references both to the Gleaner and the
Engineer; in fact, he declares that the
Atlin district is destined to come to the
front in the next few years more than
it has done in the past. "Everything
that was said in the despatch from Vancouver concerning the Gleaner was correct," he stated, "There was no exaggeration. It was a plain statement of
facts. I feel so confident that we have
a splendid thing that I might be tempted
to go to extremes, and I don't want to
do that, because people might think 1
was letting loose a lot of hot air. The
best way to get at the plain truth, 1
think, would be to await the issuance of
the Dominion government's rejiort. I
am confident thut it will more than bear
out what has been said."
The Gleaner, Mr. Mct'abe says, is
situated on Tuku Arm. Just below on
the water is the Engineer. Both are
being developed just as fast as circumstances permit. On both properties the
ledges are well defined, and can lie
traced with ease the full length of the
properties. The quartz is free milling.
Seventy-five sacks of the ore were brought
out from the Gleaner and are being
assayed at Vancouver. He believed that
it would be found to run to thousands of
dollars to the ton. But a definite announcement would be received some
time next month.
Mr. McCabe took advantage of the
opportunity to congratulate the provincial government on the steps taken to
open up the Atlin district for exploitation. During the putt two years a
number of splendid roads, badly needed,
hud been constructed. As a result it
was possible to bring the ore out from
different pro|H'rties by wagon without
the slightest difficulty.
Treating Habit He-in* Young
There are many who ..ould be ready
to endorse the resolution of the Church
of England Synod against treating, who
do not see that the habit is one that
often begins outside the saloon.
Self-indulgence is not limited to the
drinking of alcoholic beverages. There
are many little children who every
morning call at the corner grocery or
the candy store on their way to school.
Older brothers and sisters seldom go
into town without buying ice cream or
ice crean. soda. These boys and girls
treat one another regularly. One night
last summer nt eleven o'clock a party
of some twenty young people sat round
a table in a very brilliantly lighted
and   handsomely   furnished   room   mot

We have the agency
for one of the best
firms of furriers in
Canada, and are now
prepared to take orders for furs of any
description from an inexpensive Stole to a
high grade Seal-sktn
Coat	
We have catalogues
showing styles and descriptions and can guarantee as good satisfaction as if you actually
selected your own furs.
We take these orders
on a small commission
bull and intending purchasers can buy just as
cheaply as they could
in the East.
It will soon be time for
men to consider what
kind of gifts they are
going to make to wife,
mother, sister, and the
problem would be readily solved by ordering
furs from ua, paying a
deposit on them and
laying them by until
Christmas. It takes
some time to get furs
so it ia as well to be
forehanded and get
your   order   in   early.

., T. J. Vayghn-Rhys is in town at the
head of a delegation from Stewart to
wait upon Premier McBride. Mr.
Vaughn-Rhys is the pioneer mining
engineer of this part of the country, and
whatever he says has the appreciable
value of the statements of an expert. He
is the engineer for the two Prince Rupert
mining enterprises on Portland Canal,
the Main Reef and the Blue Point. In
regard to these he said yesterday:
"I am very glad to be able to say that
both these properties are opening up
very nicely, and that the shareholders
are likely to come out all right. We have
been quiet for a time up at Stewart,
largely due to general financial conditions
but the camp is developing very well
indeed and it is merely a matter of time
when this steady development is going
lo tell and attract outside capital in our
direction.
"The Portland Canal mining company's mill is one of the factors that is
going to help considerably in this
direction. It probably has the best
concentrator in British Columbia; in
fact is doing belter than any mill in the
province. It will demonstrate that our
ores are capable of concentration. There
have bean many rumors that our ores
could not be concentrated, so you will
understand the values of the t^sts they
have made. It was said they could not
be concentrated because they were
liable lo slime. As a matter of fact, they
are making a very high extraction,
something over ninety per cent, and the
concentration will be about three in one.
"The result of this is that one cause
of the 'Knocking' against our ores is
eliminated. The Portland Mine will
begin shipping in about two weeks.
They are hauling the ore now in wagons,
but the engineer in charge of the railway
Bays he will have the steel laid lo Bitter
creek during the winter, and the mill
is only three miles and a quarter from
the wharf. So the concentrates will be
brought from the mill to the dock in a
very short time. As soon as the Portland
Mine makes its shipments, the demonstration of the values of our ores will
start stocks moving up again and we
shall have new capital coming in.
"Stewart is seeking incorporation at
the coming session of the provincial
parliament and we expect to build up

a pretty town. Also a strong effort will
be made to advertise not only its mineral
possibilities but also the scenic features
of the route. We hope by thiB effort to
divert a good deal of the tourist trade
now going to Skagway into our district.
Then we shall shortly have a railway
into the Naas valley and have behind
us a valuable agricultural section. There
are other things too, that are going to
help, outside of the development of
our mines, which insure to Stewart I
future.
"But there has been some knocking in
Prince Rupert, and the reason for this
is beyond my comprehension. There is
no rivalry between Stewart and Prince
Rupert. On the contrary we are ready
at all times lo assist the growth of Prince

j Rupert   because  we  are  all  interested
in the development of the north, and it
j is a necessity of future progress that we
1 must have a big central population to
I keep the north from being a mere ap-
; pendage  of  the  souther!,   part  of  the
| province.     If   there   is   any   sectional
! feeling   at   all   developing,   we   would
; prefer   it   should   be   northern   British
1 Columbia versus southern  British  Columbia.    We in the north should stand
shoulder to shoulder, and we of Stewart
are willing and eager to help build up
Prince Rupert as our metropolis.
"And they all feel like that up Stewut
way, Mr. Vaughn-Rhys?"
"They certainly do.   That is esacuj
how   we   all   feel.    I   urn thorough^
i representative  of   our  people on ti,
] issue at any rate."
