WILL HAVE ANOTHER TRY
TO GET PAPERS SIGNED
j The City Council's Settlement of the G.T.P. Assessment Has Been Held Up Since June ft���Mayor to
Go to Victoria to Get McBride's
Signature
A NEW TARIFF
ON U.S. COAL
After waiting since the 8th of
I June for Hon. Richard McBride
I to put his signature to the papers,
the city council's settlement  of
I ihe C. T.   P.  assessment  seems
likely soon to go through.
At the meeting of the city council lasi night Mayor Manson suggested that as Premier McBride
would   he   in   Victoria   probably
this  week   it   would   no   doubt
facilitate  matters  if a  member
nf the COimdl  went  to  Victoria
Ito mi* ilu- Premier with the ob-
ject of obtaining the hasty ratification of the Legislature on the
I agreement made between the G.
| T. P. and this city.
It was decided to send the
Mayor to Victoria to sec Mr.
McBride and request him to hurry
tin- necessary ratification so that
I tlu- people here may vote on it
as soon as possible.
McBride will Forget
"It would be .. wise move for
tin- Mayor to go to Victoria,"
I opined Alderman Smith. Mr. McBride will have several important
matters io attend to when hc
returns and will likely forget all
sbout the people of Prince Rupert."
Alderman Hilditch endorsed his
colleague's views. Alderman Newton said he knew that many
things were being held back in
lhe city pending the final settlement of the agreement and urged
lhe necessity of clinching the matter.
When the Mayor will go was
not decided. It will likely be
this week.
NO  PLACE  LIKE HOME

fide sides of furniture commenced

Tite. proprietor of the up-to-date

Reduction of $3 per Ton on
Coal at Calgary -Will Relieve
Coal Shortage.
(Canadian Press Despatch)
Winnipeg, Aug 1.���The new coal
tariff which will affect all coal
carried west from Port Arthur
and Fori William will go into
effect in a few days. There will
be no change in the rate to Winnipeg. In portions of the West
directly affected by the coal strike
which normally get coal from the
western mines there will be a
very material reduction. To Calgary the reduction will be S3 per
ton, further west the greater will
be the reduction. It is stated
also that large quantities of coal
will be obtained for thc West
from Monlana.
Sir William Mackenzie says a
few cars of Montana coal will be
brought in and tested. If the
test proves satisfactory large quantities of the coal will be imported.
Investigations are being made with
reference to ,thc possibilities of
securing retas on coal from Indiana and Illinois if the strike
is not settled.

WORKMEN FIND TRACES
OF PRIMITIVE DWELLERS
Over on Digby Island, the Workmen Find Skulls, Stone
Tools and Remains of an Old Camp Fire Fifteen
Feet Below Surface of the Ground���Has
Been There Thousands of Years
That Prince Rupert harbor was
inhabited by races of mankind,
thousands of years ago is abundantly demonstrated by the discovery over on Digby Island at
the Quarantine Station, ot traces
of human life fifteen feet below
the level of the present soil.
Skull, teeth, stone hammer heads
a stone ball like a garden bowl,
and even the ashes of dead camp
fires which flickered their last
rays of warmth thousands of years
ago, have been uncovered by the
picks and shovels of the workmen.
These interesting archaelogical
discoveries lack only the presence
of a skilled student to tell approximately how long it is they
have lam there. Through strata
after strata can lie traced the
succession of centuries, telling how
drop by drop the clouds have elc-
positcd their tiny grains of sand
and earth, and the processes of
decay have caused the timber and
grass to form an earth covering
for the remains.
One of the most interesting
discoveries shown to a News reporter by Mr. P. W. Anderson,
the contractor for the quarantine
station, was the remains of an
old fireplace, more than ten feet
below the level of the ground. It
was opened out by the picks of
lhe workmen as they dug down
to the hard pan of the island
in finding a strong foundation for
the stately concrete buildings which
are to be built there.
The scooped out hollow in the
ground could be plainly traced
in the strata, and in the centre
were the charred remains of the
fire-coals. For several feet all
around were clam shells, not left
by Nature, but by the hands
of primitive man. This was in-
dicated by ihe fact that all thc
shells were hollow side up, plainly
telling the talc of how early
savages gathered round the "clam
bakes" in the dawn of mankind's
history, just as the modern picnicker does.
A stone ball perfectly rounded
like a camion ball, and a rounded
stone hammer head, belong to a
later date. The shells, and thc
workmen have unearthed several,
are in good preservation. To a
layman, they appear to be narrower in the forehead, than the typical
Haida head.

WHAT IS RECIPROCITY?
The Reciprocity Bill is a proposal between Canada and
the United States to reciprocally ablosih taxes on the food
products which are exchanged across the border between the
two countries.
It will mean a reduction in the high cost of living, and
make food more plentiful.
It will enable the people of British Columbia to enjoy the
early fruits of the Pacific States free of duty.
It will enable the fruit growers of British Columbia to
market their later matured fruits in the markets of the United
States at a time when they will bring the highest prices.
It will open the markets of the United States to the lumber
of British Columbia.
It will open the markets of the United States to the fisheries
of Northern British Columbia.
It will bring twenty thousand fishermen and their families
to Prince Rupert.
It will bring prosperity to Prince Rupert.
The letter was addressed by the City Clerk,apparently at the Instance
of the Board of Works, to a local contractor:
July 25, 1!'11
Dear Sir,���I enclose herewith cheque for $17.50 in payment
of your account for hauling rock crusher, etc. As I explained to you
a week ago, the Board of Works together with the City Engineer,
consider the charge of $15.00 an extortionate one, and after considering the same for a week or so, the Board decided to pass the
account for payment, and it instructed me when paying ihis account
to inform you, you were to receive no more work from the Cily.
I hear from various sources that you are complaining becausi
you wen- not iisktd 10 tender on ihe hauling of the crushed rock,
ami I mention this fact so that you will understand why you were
not asked to tender, thai is, I was simply carrying out instructions
given to me by the Board of Works.

The landlady drew an envelope
from her bag; from it she shook
nut two burnt matches and a
cigarette-end upon the tabic.
"They were on his tray this
morning. I brought them because
I had heard that you can read
great things out of small ones."
Holmes shrugged his shoulders.
"There is nothing here," said
he. "The matches have, of course,
been used to light cigarettes. That
is obvious from the shortness of
the burnt end. Half the match
is consumed in lighting a pipe
or a cigar. But, dear me! this
cigarette stub is certainly remarkable. The gentleman was bearded
and moustached, you say?"
"Yes, sir."
"I don't understand that. I
should say that only a cleanshaven man could have smoked
ihis. Why, Watson, even your
modest moustache would have
been singed."
"A holder?" I suggested.
"No, no; the end is malted. I
suppose there could not be two
people in your rooms, Mrs. Warren?"
"No, sir. He cats so link- that
I often wonder it can keep life
in one."
"Well, I think we must wait
for a little more material. After
all, you have nothing to complain
of. You have received your rent,
and he is not a troublesome
lodger, though he is certainly an
unusual one. He pays you well,
and if he chooses to lie concealed
it is r.o direct business of yours.
We have no excuse for an intrusion upon his privacy until
we have some reason to think
that there is a guilty reason for
It. I've taken up the matter, and
I won't lose sight of it. Report to
me if anything fresh occurs, and
rely upon my assistance if it
should be needed."

"There arc- certainly some points and   cannot   m
f interest  in this case, Watson,"  letter   without   0
he remarked, when the landlady
had left us*    "Il may, of course;
be trivial-  individual excentricity,
or it may be very much deeper
than appears on the surface.   The
first thing that strikes one is the
obvious possibility that the person
now in the rooms may be entirely
different   from  the  one who  engaged them."
"Why should you think so?"
"Well, apart from this cigarette-
end, was it not suggestive that, the
only  time  the lodger went out
was immediately after his taking
the  rooms?    He came back���or
someone came back���when all witnesses were out of the way.   Wc
have  no   proof  that  the  person
who came back was the person
who went out.   Then, again, the
man  who  UKik the rooms spoke
English well.    This other, however, prints 'match' when it sliouid
have been  'matches.'    I can imagine that the word was taken
out of a dictionary, which would
give the noun bui not the plural.
The   laconic   style   may   be   to
conceal the absence of knowledge
of English.    Yes,  Watson,  there
;ire good reasons to suspect that
there  has been  a  substitution  of
lodgers."
"But for what possible end?"
"Ah!   there   lies   our   problem.
There is one rather obvious line*
of Investigation."   He took down
thc   great   book   in   which,   day
by  day,   he   filed   the  all agony
columns  of   thc  various   London
journals.     "Dear   me!"   said   he,
turning over the pages, "what a

To remove stains from iodine on

Sunshine is one of the best

THE GOOD OLD WORLD
I saw a new world in my dream,
Where all the folks alike did seem:
There was no Child, there was no
Mother
There was no Change, there was no
Other.
For everything was Same, the Same
There was no praise, there was no
blame;
There was neither Need nor Help
for it;
There was nothing fittiiig or unfit.
Nobody laughed, nobody wept;
No one grew weary, so no one slept:
There was nobody born, and nobody wed;
This world was a world of the
living-dead.
I longed to hear the Time-Clock
strike
In the world where people were all
alike;
I hated Same, I hated Forever;
1 longed to say Neither, or even
Never.
I long's to mend, I long'd to make;
1 long'd to give, 1 long'd to take;
1 long'd for change, whatever came
after.
I  long's for crying,   I  long'd  for
laughter.
At last   I  heard  the Time-Clock
boom,
And woke from my dream in my
little room;
Willi a Smile on her lips my Mother
was nigh,
And I heard the Baby crow and cry.
And I though to myself, How nice
it is
For me to live in a world like this,
Where   things   can   happen   and
clocks can strike,
And none of the people are made
alike.
Where Love wants this, and Pain
wants that,
Where all our hearts want tit for tat
In the jumbles we make with our
heads and our hands,
In a world lhat nobody understands
But with work and hope, and ihe
right to call
Upon Him who sees it and knows
us all.

It is not generally known that

jelly lhat is beautiful in color and
delicious in taste. Wash one

and a firm, crimson jelly will be
the result.

Old Vintage Reward for Longest
Hirsute Appendage on October 10th���Betting in Favor of
News Printer.
Everything grows prolific-ally in
British Columbia.   Effulgent and
succulent skunk cabbage thrive*.
bountifully in B. C; towns and
cities grow like mushrooms; trees
grow Lin ami Strong, delicate
children shipped in from other
provinces develop into muscular
citizens,  but   nothing  grows with
greater rapidity or to better advantage than an hirsute appendage
or chin whiskers.
Down in the vaults of a local
hotel is a case of good olel vintage
said to have been bottled when
Vancouver, the explorer and navigator called in here for provisions.
Either Ben Self, a local chef, or
L. J. Baarlaer of the Daily News
stall will win that cue of wine.
Whichever one has the longest
chin decorations on the 10th day
of October in the year of our
Lord 1911 will get it.
At the present running it looks
as if that delightful beverage will
come to the News office. Both
men are cultivating their chin
weeds as if they were growing
roses for the Portland rose show.
Ben is trying a preparation of
sauerkraut and weiner jiastc to
aid the growth, while the News
printer is massaging the territory
round his organs of osculation
with gasoline and machine oil.
Half the boys ill town are having
lots of fun over these, yet infant
growlhs. It requires courage to
grow whiskers these days.

Oregonian Express Three
Days Ago.
Fate made an overture last
Saturday to spoil the holiday of
Mr. W. D. Black, of the mechanical
stall of the Daily News. He was
travelling on the Oregonian  Ex-
press running out of Seattle when
it collided with another train at
Burlington. Wash. Happily no-
boily was hurt though there were
some very near escapes, It took
several hours to clear away the
wreckage. Mr. Black left here
last week on a few weeks' holiday.
ACCIDENTALLY   DROWNED
Verdict  of Jury on  Death  of
George Litchenauer
A FAREWELL BANQUET
Pleasant Little Affair After the
Show was Over Last Night
After the performance was over
in the Empress Theatre last night,
the members of the May Roberts
Company and the members of the
Prince    Rupert    Orchestra    were
guests at a complimentary banquet
in the Exchange drill. Manager
Frank Stevens of the Empress
Theatre WBS the host, anil a very
enjoyable time was s|mit. Farewells were uttered by the member*
of tin* company, who all declared
that Prince Riijhti was "in* of
the best places they bad ever
Struck, and many kind things
were slid about the splendid services the orchestra had rendered
during the week.
Hit  a Candidate
The   names   of   several   Prince
Rupert gentlemen have Im-ch mentioned as nominees for ilu* C0n��
servative party in Comox'Atlin,
Oni of these was hit by a ball
ilt tl'.e indoor ball game lhe Other
night.     Sun.on.-   in   ap'ilogy   re*
marked  that  it  was impossible
to thfOW a ball thest .lays without
hitting a Conservative nominee
After a short deliberation last
night the jury empanelled to inquire into the cause of the death
of Oeorgc Litchenauer who was
found dead near his shack last
Friday morning, returned a verdict
of accidentally drowned.
Dr. l-.ggert swore that according
to his deductions made from the
autopsy he held on deceased, death
wastlue to drowning. He described
the condition of the lungs, etc., in
his tioely. The position, condition,
and other incidents were explain.d
by Thomas Collins, who found the
liody.
What condition was the ground
near where the li-ody lay and where
there any rocks near it,", asked
Juryman J.J. Sloan.
"There   were   rocks   near   the
body, but the ground was smooth."
Frank Pollock, formerly a partner  with   eleccascel   said   he   lasi
saw   Litchenauer  alive  on   Wednesday  night  about   11.18  when
he was about  to go across  the
li.iil.in    to   his   shack.     In   the
estimation  of  witness  lhe  cause
of   il..iih   was   by   falling   into
the water when the old man tried
to slep from his big lioat  to a
little skiff, which he* use-el to get
in to shore after he anchored the-
big boat.    This theory the jury
considered   was   logie-al.     Pollock
explained the feat of transferring
to the skilT was a diiiir.ilt one even
in daylight.

millionaire "asbestos king," and
his chorus girl bride, who was
Miss Florence Huber, of Williams-
port, Pa., will get married for the
third time soon.
"I.inny and 1 have a reel seal

gold one on the New Jersey
license; now we want a blue one,
anel we'll gel that in Connecticut,"
explained the youthful Mrs. Manville. She is four years older than
"l.innie," who is 19.
There is method in their marrying madness. Papa Manville has
threatened to have lhe ceremonies
annulled. The e-ouple believe that
by marrying ofte-n i-noiigh, in
different s,ates, they will discourage him.

HELP   FOR   BUSY   MEN
A Little Service that May Prove
a Time and Money Saver
There are lots of business men
who appreciate the value of ii
neat correspomleneT, who have
not enough work lo keep a competent stenographer permanently.
But il would lie an eceononiy for
them to have their dictation turned into letters liy a public stenographer, instead of laboring over
a type writer iheinselves.
This is the theory on which
Miss Grant has opened an office
in the Continental Trust building
;is a public stenographer,   She
merits success in her new enler-
prise.
Would Sell a Lot
If lhe city would like lo buy
B cheap lot adjoining the electric
light plant, the Prince Rupert
Bgendes would sell one for $2,100.
The lighi committee will elcal wi,h
the matter.
It's Badly Needed
The streets committee will con��
sider the |H'tiiioii of Frank Evans,
and   nineteen   others   for  a   solid
useful sidewalk on Sei nei avenue
between Seventh n ' Eighth streets
The present one is tine-less.
Beware of the Dog
A little while ago there were
too ma V rats in the dty, now
Alderman Douglas claims there*

for an official dog catcher. The
Mayor said the appointment "involved considerable expense."
Alderman Kirkpatrick suggested
ii discarded piano box as a recp-
tiicle for stray canines.
Alderman Douglas stooel by his
idea to reduce lhe number of dogs.
Then Alderman Siniih neiit the
matter tO the ever busy street
committee.
