City Engineer, Colonel Davis, Outlines Plans for Commencement of the $550,000 Hydro-Electric Scheme
���Lots of Station Work to be Provided for on
Pipe Line and Clearing
To lasi right's council tin light
and .rater committee presented a
report on thc starring up stages
nf thc hdyro-clectric scheme, lis
recommendations were first thai
the necessary surveys should be
made the blasting operations at
ilu* Shawatlans outflow arranged
for, lhe trenching work within the
city started, the Acropolis Hill
reservoir surveyed again wiih a
view to completion, ar.d two extra
engineers looked out to assist with
tin work. Accompanying the re-
pun which was adopged by the
council, is a rc]ion by the city
engineer on thc first stages of the
development of thc Woodworth
hydro-electric scheme.
First of all it is necessary to
run a contour line around Wood*
tilth lakeside 80 feci above the
|i \. l of .In* lake to prepare for the
,ii v. of station gang contracts
p..r clearing the limber there.
Then particular surveys must lie
in.'il.* ai  Shawatlans  Lake and
through  the  valley  of  the  creek
lip  lo  Woodworth   down   which
the pipe line is to come instead
of by the line originally run for
it had the scheme been for water
BUppl) only. Tenders for cast
iron pipe must be advertised for.
On  the city side of Shaw.illars
Passage  trenches  for  the  pipes
must be excavated.
This is the first work ihat can
be done and City Kngincer Davis
recommends that it be got going
as soon as possible as it may be
possible to supply lhe city wiih
water from Shawatlans Lake before
the Woodworth pipe line is completed by transferring the pumping
engine from Morse Creek to Shawatlans. The survey ard com-
pletlon of the Acropolis Hill reservoir is also included in Colonel
Davis's report on which the water
committee's re|Mirt is based. The
cour.dl met again today at 3
p.m. to continue their discussion
of this and other city work.

Io issue a new time schedule

This step, he says, is made
necessary by the largely increasing business on the line,
ind the fact that the ballasting
has proceeded to such a point
Is to permit of this being done.
He reports that work along

here means a permanent benefit
to the city from the large force of

Will Hear Later
R, H. Thompson, city engineer
of Seattle, is at present considering
the propositions of the Prince
Rupert Hydro Electric Company
(formerly the Tsimpsean people).
Later on more will be heard of
this matter through tin- city council.
"We would recommend that
in the carrying out of this (the
Hydro-Electric) work, a committee consisting of the whole
council should take die n s-
ponsihility of the supervision
of the work, regular meetings
of the committee to be held
weekly or as often as found
necessary supplemented if nee
essary by an executive committee."
Over the above clause, and most
particularly the closing words of
It, in the report of the waler and
light committee on the Hydro-
Electric scheme to be started up.
there was some sharp discussion
in council las, nigh.. Alderman
Douglas ard Alderman Newton
objected strongly to the institution of an "Executive Committee" on die ground thai there
is already such string feelii g in
the city that the carrying on of
ihis hydro-electric scheme will be
tinkered with to suit the political
faction of the council, that the
council dare not acl by committee
bu, must do everything in open
meeting or run the grave risk of
the people's vigorous resent met* I.
Clause Carried
Keeling was expressed BO Strongly
b\ Alderman Ntwton and Alderman Douglas that for a time
Alderman Clayton seemed quite
Inclined to agree with them and
delete lhe clause from  the report
which he and Alderman Smith
had drawn up and signed. Alderman Smith, however, was linn to
retain the executive committee,
on the ground that ii was a business system, and better for the
work than the open count il proceedings were likely to be. Eventually lhe matter was put to the
meeting by the Mayor, and the
report was adopted inducting ihe
clause. So lhe hydro-eleciric scheme will be worked as stated.
Shots from the Skirmish
"1 don', want to see this thing
go into the hands of any committee, Mr. Major. If you saw
the workings of the committees
I am on you'd know why. Thiol her members of committee simply
vote me down every time I differ
with them."- Aid. Douglas.
"I don't like the insinuation
lhat we an* Irving to do things
in the dark."���Aid. Smith.
"There is no gelling away from
die fact that there is a very strong
suspicion in the city that things
are going lo be done in this water
works undertaking in anything but
a Straightforward way. There is
a suspicion that this whole undertaking will lie used lo strengthen
the party in power." - Aid. Newton
"So D Crooked"
"Oh, well, if the people believe
we   are   all   so   d���-d   crooked
"We are now making preparations lo stan work right away
on several of the railw, > company's
improvements," said Superintendent Mehan. "We shall begin
clearing the grounds for our permanent yards ard passenger ar.d
freight stations, aid ihis. and the
removal of the present buildings,
will give a great amount of work-
calling for the employment of a
la.reg body of men. The dry

completed and we are almost

"It is practically settled, however, so far as I can see, that the
hotel site will be on the bluff

facing First aveiue. A large
portion of the waterfront ai that
point will be levelled and terraced
into beautiful grounds, so that
from the hotel ai d grounds people

latter is decided.

Blue Ribbons put it over a team

was 21 10. At the end of the sixth
innings the latter team was shut
out, and iheir rivals' score which
.H that stage stood at 9-10climbed
steadily up to victory.
At the city council meeting last
night Alderman Hilditch arose
in his chair full of reset'I men t
at the way Alderman Newton,
as editor of the Empire, had
attacked him just before the Hydro
Electric Bylaw had conn- before
the people. He demanded of lhe
Mayor the truth about the i.itcr-
view published as purporting to bt
with his worship in which the
statement was made as coming
from thc Mayor that Alderman
Hilditch was not to have anything to do with the spending of
ihe money for the hydro electric
scheme. "1 would like lo know
if you ever gave that interview-'"
demanded Alderman Hilditch of
the Mayor. He referred furiher
to the editorial in the same issue
of the Empire which suggested
that Alderman Hilditch had such
a had name iu thc city that if the
bylaw were turned down it would
he mainly because of Alderman
Hilditch, and further accused the
Mayor of "truckling to Alderman
Mayor's Denial
Alderman   Hilditch  further  re
marked thai Alderman Newion
either did i'<>t know his business
on the council or was deliberately
trying lo do a scurrilous trick and
knife him. "If there is any graft
on ihis council," declared Alderman Hilditch, "it is Alderman
Newton himself who should be
able to s|vol il, for he has lhe last
look at the council accounts always." I want lo know about
that Interview," he concluded addressing lhe Mayor.
In reply the Mayor said: "The
first part of the interview about
die hydro-electric scheme remaining in the hands of the water committee, 1 certainly gave lo the
Empire reporter, Inn I made no
'lighting remarks at all in reference
to Alderman Hilditch or any other
member of the council."
Newton Renews Attack
At this Aldennan Newton rose
gaunt and pallid looking. Ik-
said lhal he had been unwell, and
had not intended taking any an,ive
pari in that night's council work.
Bui Aldennan Hilditch had thrown
down the gauntlet. He would
lake il up whether he fell ill or
well. "All I know aboul that
interview," he said, "is thai it was
an interview with a member of
my staff. I did not take sufficient
trouble to read the mailer. It
went through lhe ordinary channels, I absolutely did noi know
what was in it until I saw ii in
prim. " As for the editorial references to Aldennan Hilditch. however, Alderman Newton was ready
lo take entire responsibility. "I
have no apology to make about
this," he said, "I am only sorry
that there is a member of the
council so weak and so low in the
public confidence that it became
necessary for me io treat llu*
subject in this way to help' the
tylaw through. I think it a crying
ihaine and a weakness to this
council to have such a man ou i.

yet the Empire editorials lasi night do seem so like poor Peter's vain
little "OO���oo���00" without one spark of the cleverness, thai Prince
Rupert's goodnaturcd laugh from stalls to gallery, so lo speak, came as
a matter of course.
In one editorial���oh, such an editorial!���in which it accuses the
Daily News of a "want of proper newspaper etiquette" the Evening
Empire prints the follow!) g choice verbiage about the News:
"That rascally deceptive warfare has been in vogue wil
geance ever since through the Instrumentality of a rum of
and a half-wilted, impractical and illogical import from the
Oh, you etiquette! Shade of a defunct Billingsgate fish merchant!

a ven-
Very clear indeed is the warning of lhe Davis float accident to
all citizens who go pleasure seeking by sea. Here is distinctly a case
of an accident which happened through that contempt for risk born
of loo much familiarity wiih a simple raft bridge afloat in deep water,
reasonably safe if properly used, yet a perfect death trap if overloaded.
Strong feeling certainly does exist in the city that this raft bridge
useil at the Davis wharf to transfer boat users from the shore to the
floating boat house was a primitive and peril-fraught affair which
should have been abolished long ago. Mr. Davis himself admits that
if he had had any assurance from the G. T. P. that his tenure of his
temporary location by the grade was at all sure for this season, he
Would have had a gangway constructed instead of the rope hauled
raft. He is sorry he did not now. and profoundly thankful that the
Labor Day accident was not a fatal one.
In fairness to Mr. Davis, however, part of the blame must be
attached to those who allowed so many people to crowd in the darkness
on to a raft which as everybody iii Prince Rupert must surely know,
does not hold more than live or six people safely, and is designed
for Only four passengers. To have allowed twelve adults four of whom
were women, and two mothers with infants in arms, to throng haphazard on to so frail a craft at nine o'clock at night was almost criminal
recklessness. Beyond doubt the men of the picnic party did noble
work in saving the women and infants, not to mention the male non-
swimmers from death. Yet after all, it was up to those men io save
the lives of the women who trusted themselves and their babies to
their tare. It was up to them ten thousand times the more to save
those tender lives because they had allowed such dangerous overcrowding of the rafi bridge. If the Davis float raft bridge were such
a source of peril, then ought not the users of it to have been even
more than usually careful?
Last night an Empire editorial accuses the Daily News of a "want
of a spirit of fairplay" and "want of a sense of justice." Is there such
a wonderful "sense of justice" or "spirit of fairplay" then in the Empire's
attack on the Davis float? The float was primitive to be sure. So
are many appliances used today In Rupert. No one claims that ii
was a safe or even a convenient affair. But it had been used with
reasonable safety for three years by those who took reasonable care
with it, and it was disgracefully overloaded when the Labor Day-
accident happened. Any but an Empire "sense of justice" ard "spirit
of fair play" would demand that the blame in this case be equally
ITEMS  O F . . j
In the same issue with an editorial tilled "The Knockers" which
accuses the Daily News of "disloyalty to the city" the Evening Empire
publishes thc following:
"Mayor Manson had presented to President Hays a quantity
of roots and vegetables grown in Prince Rupert muskeg by Sheriff
Shirley and these certainly were most handsome samples. The exhibit
included potatoes, turnips, cauliflower, carrots, parsnips, peas and
other varieties and furnishes abundant proof of the productiveness
of the vegetable mold���which comprises the term muskeg."
It requires bill a \er> fleeting glance through the files of bolh
papers for the past summer and spring to discover which paper did
the most to boost Prince Rupert. As a matter of fact the very paragraph just quoted shows the result of the publication by the Daily
News on August 10th of the story of Sheriff Shirley's garden. The
Daily News happens io know that the Evening Empire was invited
also by the Sheriff to look at that garden but did not think il worth
even a passing glance. It takes ihe Daily News after all to discover
the stories that really do boost Prince Rupert.
"00���oo���00! Thc cleverness of Me!" crowed Peter Pan when
Wendy sewed his shadow on his heels again after hc had vainly tried
to do the job himself with soap. And somehow at that bit the audience
from gallery lo stalls always laughed.
The Evening Empire is not nearly such a lovable .spirit as Peter
Pan���it is almost a pity to place them side by side for an iiustant���
How the Daily News can "still retain that confidence, respect
and influence which is essential lo any newspaper wishing io wield
an influence in the community" is past the understanding of the
Evening Empire according to an editorial published in that persistently
prosy old oracle of glum prophecy last night. Daily News readers
whose powers of perception are fortunately not limited like those of
the poor befuddled but still solemnly verbose old Empire, have no
difficulty at all in understanding why the Daily News attracts, encourages, and retains confidence, respect, and i: fluet-ce. The Daily
News is bright and readable, brings a smile inio the home with it
no matter which way the battle or the bylaw business got -, aid doesn't
go round with a sore head in a. sling whining about bad limes ar.d an
ungrateful community. The Daily News believes in, and boosts Prince
Rupert. .And tlie Daily News is not nosing around with feverish and
unholy amdety to discover unsavory aspects of the public life and try
to correct them with a sanctimonious air, but would far rather find
out and publish the pleasant siories of good ilii't-gs discovered thai
boost our city in the view of the work! outside.

Stringent rules to govern boxing
contests in New York state have
been adopted and promulgated by
the newly organised State Boxing
Commission, says the New York
Herald. Physical fitness of the
participants is lo lie insisted upon,
and betting is to be discouraged,
according lo the program of the
boxing commissioners. The secretary, Charles J. Harvey, declares
lhat the commission will have an
official representative present at
all contests to see that tlie rules
are lived up to. The commsiisson
ruled against decisions being given
in professional events.
The new rules, which will go
into effect on August 29, as given
out by Mr. Harvey, provide that
every contestant must be examined
within 48 hours before the contest
by a physician who has lieen
licensed to practise in the State of
New York for not less than five
years, ard this examiner must
certify in writing that the boxer
is physically sound and fit to
engage in the exhibition. Moreover, the referee must stop tlie
conies, when either of the boxers
shows marked superiority and no
decisions are to lie rendered except
in amateur tournaments held under
the rules of lhe Amateur Athletic
The contestants must use gloves
wdghing al least five ounces,
which must be handed to the men
by lhe referee and which cannot
be twisted or in any way manipulated. No person under eighteen
years of age is to be allowed to
participate in any boxing contest.
Betting on the outcome is strictly
forbidden. Tlie commission has
ordered that in at least four
places in each licensed hall the
following notice must be prominently displayed:
"No betting allowed. Any per*
som iraking or offering to make a
bet is guilty of a misdeanieai-our

Closing  Out The  Entire Stock
On   Thursday,   September   7th
We are beginning a Sale long to be remembered in Prince Rupert. AH of our Stock and Fixtures amounting to
$30,000.00 will be sold, regardless of cost, in the quickest possible time. [This is without doubt the best and
largest stock of jewelry ever offered for special sale in Northern British Columbia]. Don't forget that you are
approaching the Christmas season. You can save yourself from 50 to 100 per cent, by taking advantage of this
great opportunity. Then, too, do not come late. Early buyers are the wise buyers. Don't wait until the very
article you need has been sold and then you will say "too late." This store has been noted for quality of Cut
Glass. It has always carried this entire line along with the Sterling Silver, Silver Plate Ware, Cutlery, Clocks,
Brass Goods, China, Ladies' Hand Bags, Gilt Goods, Leather Goods and every other article wejstock is to be sold
at a tremendous sacrifice.

Cleaning Fine Curtains
Kor the finest and somewhat
worn ecru curtains the following
method is a favorite, says Good
Housekeeping: The curtains arc
shaken free of dust and then
put in a. bag. Hut this time a
few quarts of con-meal wet with
gasoline is put in the bag with
the lace. The whole is rubbed and
kneaded together and left as it is
until the next day. Then the bag
is taken out of doors, the curtains
removed and shaken clear of the
meal and hung on the line until
free of odor. They will ther look
fresh and clean, ard will still have
the rich ecru color. Colored Madras curtains may also be cleaned
by this process.
Kind Car Conductor and Lone
Lorn Lady
She pursed her lips and shut her
purse. She had come out without
car fare. She told the conductor
as much.
The conductor looked at her
blankly. He didn't want to throw
her off. She had on a nice while
linen suit and it mighl get Boiled.
"I'll telephone u> headquarters
aid find out what to do about it,"
he told her. "Stop the car. Or,
wait a minute, I'll stop it."
He Stopped the car, and went to
hunt for a telephone, in spite* of
the earnest protests of the rest of
the passengers. Some of them
were in a great hurry. Three
brokers were aboard, and millions
depended upon whether they reached the stock exchange in lime t>.
sell at 2846 some B. ar.d X. they
had bought at 24. They pleaded,
begged and swore, but the conductor wa.s firm.   He left the car.
He was gone fifteen minutes.
When hc reaimcd fourteen cars
were blocked behind his and the
brokers were foaming at the mouth.
Millions had been lost, including
the company's nickel.
"The president sa.id to let you
ride," he told her.
New Process by Which Blood
Stains May be Identified
An incident may be recalled
of an attempt lieing made in lb
early history of Winnipeg, when a
your.g map in the mill on the
banks of the Red River decamped,
and tried to cover his tracks by
sprinkling from the mill 10 the river
drops of blood of a chicken, hoping
this to be mistaken for human
blood, and thus lead to the inference that he had been murdered
and thrown into the river. By
the use of lhe microscope it was
easy to distinguish between the
shape of the blood corpuscles of
the man and of the bird. Bui a
much graver question comes when
the distinction is sought between
the blood of man and that of
some other member of the mammalia, such ns the horse or dog or
A new test of great perfection
has now been  found which is in
use in the Serological laboratories.
This is called the precipidve test
By this immunised rabbit's serum
is taken after being acted on by
lhe blood reaction and it will give
a distinct cloud in a lest tube with
human blood, but with no other.
We have said with no other
This is scarcely correel as ii is
staled that the blood of the p.pe
is included in ihis test ard c.-.ni ot
lie distinguished from ihe human.
In the same way it is si'id that
the blood of the horse and the ass
CSnnot by this test be distinguished
from one another. In this test it
is essential thai the test shell be
free from bacterial impurity or
indeed from any Other foreign
substance. Blood stairs on clothing can now be distinguished with
great certainly.

Ex Nihilo Nihil Fit
"How in Heaven's name can
you have a Pound Bylaw if you
haven't any pound?" demanded
the City Solicitor sternly of Alderman Douglas last night. (The
way those two grey haired old
warriors go for each other sometimes in council is better than a
dog light). "I left it to you to
frame   up   the   Inlaw,"   declared
Alderman  Douglas unflinchingly.
"Well (ell tne where you are to
put your pound, and I'll make
your bylaw," answered the City
Solicitor. "Put it on the Sniff
Yacht." suggested the tmdeterrable
Douglas. But the City Solicitor
sniffed al lhe very idea antl the
bylaw is still hanging fire.
Suspended  Sentence  for  Supplying Indian with Hooch
Magistrate Car*.-, made a new
ruling thi- morning.    Instead of
| the customary business method of
making a reducdon on taking ,.
quantity it was ihe reverse.  Tom
Robinson was only a little drunk,
io In* got off by paying the costs.
Bill Jackman was very drunk and
had to pay |6 and costs.
Mr. Batavich pleaded ignorance
of thc law prohibiting giving a
drink to an Indian, so he was
handed a warning and a suspended
sentence of thirty days in the jug.

On File
Returning Officer M. M. Stephens reported formally to the city
council Tuesday night the result
of ihe bylaw and assessment ballot.
The documents were put on file.
and the figures ordered to be
entered in the minutes.
Reciprocity doesn't conflict with

What's Your House No.7
A report from I.. Bullock-Webster, th3 contractor for the house
numbering of Prince Rupert, Alderman Newton's scheme, reported
progress last night in a letter to
the council. Aldennan Douglas
declared that while (he numbering
was getting on fast enough now
he noticed a lack of uniformity
in the system of placing the numbers. Some Were on one plan
on a house and some on another.
His own ancestral halls had been
numbered apparently both on the
billiard room and conservatory
entrances or round by the servant-'
hall. The City Clerk was requested to communicate wiih Mr. Bullock-Webster about the system.
That form the foundation for a very artistic CREPE Paper
decoration, which
produces a quiet diffusion of light and
adds greatly to the
furnishing of a room.
