The attractions for the tourist
and homeseeker of the expanse
of fertile country to the cast of
Prince Rupert', antl on which the
city will in the future be pleased
to rely for its agricultural and
garden supplies, is often referred
to but always in the nios. general
terms. The Grand Trunk Pacific
has had this point impressed upon
it by many letters of enquiry, so
it decides to send out a special
agent to collect this necessary
information. In R. ('. W. Lett
lhe company has an official well
qualified for such work because he
knows just what information is
needed and how to get it at first

"One has to be careful," he

"The first place 1 stopped at

Mr. Weeks has two acres and a half
in Strawberries, antl he has sent
to Prince Rupert sixty crates
of twenty-four boxes each, which
sold for about 35c a box. They
are remarkably healthy plants and
show that they are not killed by

The Little Lake is But Rarely Visited
QUESTIONS FOR THE MAYOR AND COUNCIL
A ratepayer who attended
Tuesday's meeting without
getting any light upon how
the council proposes to carry
out the hydro-electric undertaking, invites the Mayor to
answer the following explicit
questions publicly!
1. Will the council agree
to throw tenders open to
everyone without restriction
and undertake to award thc
contracts for the hydro-electric undertaking to the lowest
bidders who are able to comply with the bond requirements?
2. What   portion   of   thc
work or what sort of labor
does the council propose to
undertake by day labor?
3. What wages does the
council propose to pay such
laborers?
4. Will the council agree
to call for tenders concurrently? (a) Upon all the work
(except the work to be done
by day labor) as one contract;
(b) Upon the entire work
(except the portion to be
done by day labor) divided
into reasonably small station
contracts and to be tendered
upon severally, and compare
the lowest tender under (a)
with the sum of the lowest
tenders under (b), and adopt
the cheapest method; the
percentage of money required
as a deposit and for bonds,
also the conditions of contract to be the same under
each method.
5. What minimum fair
wage rate will the council
adopt?
6. Will the council agree
that such fair wage rate to
be inserted in the contracts
will be adopted for all similar
work to be done by day labor
by the city directly and for
all unskilled labor employed
by the city?

DUNCAN ROSS EXPOSES
CLEMENTS AT CUMBERLAND
Proves from Pages of Hansard that the Conservative
Candidate Advocated Reciprocity With United
States���Clements Takes Back Challenge
to Withdraw from Contest
From Yesterday's Late Edition
Daily Edition.
Thursday. Aug. 31
NOT PUBLIC SERVICE BUT PARTY ADVANTAGE
Superintendent Ross of the Seattle Light antl Power Plant, unconsciously perhaps, read the funeral service over thc hydro-eleciric
scheme when he told a Prince Rupert audience in the presence of
the Mayor and council on Tuesday that any municipal utility that
was operatetl for parly advantage instead of public service was doomed
to failure.
The audience was well aware ihat tlie proposed hydro-electric
scheme was evolved for party advantage instead of for public service.
that the whole adniinisir.ilion of ihe present council has been marked
by efforts for party advantage instead of a zeal for public service.
Had public service been their ideal, a start would have been
math- on the project months ago.
II.id public service been their ideal, the work would have been
submitted to public competition to fix the cost, ami a time limii placed
upon the contract to ensure rapid progress.
It is not public service, but party advantage that delays lhe
work until fall, when it becomes an election item.
It is not public service, bin party advantage ihat proposes to
carry out the work without any restriction on ihe cost, without public
competition, and without any limit to ihe lime it may take to carry
out.
It is not public service, but party advantage that seeks to debar
lawful and registered pro|H'rty owners (whose claim s have been ad-
mil ted by a Court of Revision) from voting on the question, and
instead enfranchises men who arc not property owners in the city,
and whose claims could not be upheld in any Court of Revision.
Victoria, August 30. -Duncan
Ross concluded the most successful series of political meetings ever held in Alberni and
Comox with a large meeting at
Cumberland last night. The
large hall was packed, the
crowds stretching out into the
streets and listening through
the open doors and windows.
Mr. Clements was present,
and was given the same time
as Mr. Ross. Mr. William Sloan
presided and spoke in support
of Duncan Ross in a forcible
speech. In conclusion he quoted from Hansard a speech
delivered in the House of Commons by Mr. Clements in which
the latter had advocated a
fair exchange in natural products with the United States.
Clements in reply gave an
indignant denial to the charge
that he had advocated reciprocity. He said that if Mr.
Ross or Mr. .Sloan could find
either in Hansard or out of it
any speech by him in which
he had advocated reciprocity
he would withdraw from the
contest.
He made a strong high protectionist speech pleading that
the wall against American goods be made higher and keeping
our national resources for the
people of Canada.
Mr. Ross produced Hansard
and read from its pages that
Clements had made the following statement:
"While I am not a freetrader,
and far from it, I would be
ready to favor reciprocity as
between the United States and
Canada."
Mr. Ross taunted his opponent with this bold declaration in reply to Mr. Sloan, and
asked him if he would withdraw now or take his punishment on election day. He
ridiculed Clement's protectionist theory and again reading
from Hansard what Clements
had said:
"I would make the Canadian
duty on beans 60c. per bushel
and compel British Columbia
to buy our beans."
"This is the man," concluded
Mr. Ross, "who now, asks to
represent the miners and other
consumers of Comox-Atlin."
The sentiment of the large
body of miners was overwhelmingly in favor of Ross and
Reciprocity.

Toronto, Aug. 30.-���At the opening of the Exhibition here Karl
Grey bade farewell to Canada, at
the close of his address he said:
"1 have heard, but I hope it
is not line, that Ontario loses
many of her teachers to tlu
Prairie provinces because better
salaries arc paid there. Search
for the best all over the world,
and educate your children to
ihink for themselves. That will
be the greatest interest to humanity.
"I advise Canadians to keep
their sons from entering the cities,
and 1 beseech you to educate and
bring up your children in the
faith that Canada is destined to
fulfil a proud and splendid mission to the world at large."

The request that a sum of 1880,000 Ih- handed over to the Public
Works Committee to spend without restriction is colossal in its audacity.
What private citizen would hand over even 18,000 to the Chairman
of the Public Works Committee for the purpose of having a house
built without proper restrictions and guarantees? The Chairman
of the Public Works Committee does not conduct his own private
business in such a muddle-headed way. A few weeks ago he had
the painting of an hotel counter lo give out. It was only a $10 job.
But he got a price on it first.   That was business prudence.
But he asks the citizens to give him 1880,000 to spend on a
hydro-electric scheme to be carried out by days labor, without any
restrictions or guarantees.
The charge that thc Board of Works gives out its work to suit
party advantage instead of public service is not a truni|X'd up one.
Thc Boards' particular method of eliminating from public work
those not of iis own fold is seen by the following letter. The thin
trick by which the Board of Works shuffles out of its obligation to
solicit lenders in the open market is quite apparent. The letter was
sent out a month ago by the Cily Clerk, apparently at the instance
of the Board of Works, to a local contractor:
July 26, 1911
Dear Sir,���I enclose herewith cheque for $17.")0 in payment
of your account for hauling rack crusher, etc. As I explained
to you a week ago, the Boartl of Works together with the City
Engineer, consider ihe charge of 116.00 an extortionate one. and
after considering the same for a week or so, the Hoard decided

paying this account (o inform you, you were to receive no more

you were not asked lo tender ou the hauling of the crushed rock,

again for ten or twelve days.
Mr. Ryley's minion i- to decide
on the location of the second
divisional point on the line from
Prince Ru|H*rt. He expects this
will be aboul two miles from
Aldermere, and lhat the company
will place it on the market this
fall. Town lots will be soltl by
public auction, the same as was
the case wiih Prince Rupert.
"The first divisional point," said
Mr. Ryley, "has not yet been
decided upon. It will be from six
to twelve miles this side of Ellison,
and  I  may be able  lo say more
aboul it on my return.
"Wc shall have two townsiu-s
near Fraser Lake, one at the
west end of the lake io be called
lhe Fraser Lake townsite, and the
Othtr about lhe center for which
no name has yet bieii selected.
Neither will be a divisional point.
"We expect to have a townsite
this tide of Ellison on the market
in from six to twelve months.
"There has nothing been decided as to the date of the sale
of ihe other sections of Prince
Rupert; in fact it has not been
discussed recently.
Captain Barney Johnston didn't
manage to make his famous starboard landing yesterday even
though he had on boanl of the
Prince Rupert that august company of Grand Trunk Railway
officials including President Hays
himself. Owing to the presence
at the wharf of lhe big rail steamer
Hans B. and the position at the
Other end of the lumber hulk lhe
landing was certainly going to bill very difficult one, in fact even a
port landing required clever seamanship.
Captain Barney Joluston is
again in command of ihe Prince
Rupert, having completely recovered from the accidental injury to
his eyes.

MODISH SILK BLOUSE
Our sketch today suggests a
delightful model for B -ilk bodice.
Ii is without trimming <>f any son
si'.ve a narrow running nf siik braid
ilown er.ch side of front, and
around neck and sleeves.
This design would also work
out well in voile or cashmere.
SOME LATE STYLES
Silk Gowns Grow More Fashionable Than  Ever
Silk gowns are becoming more
fashionable all the time, and while
it will be a difficult matter to do
away with satin, these soft finished
silks are very cli.riiiii g aid can
he drapetl and made lip to have
many of the admirable qualities
of satin. Changeable effects and
colors and the queer old fashioned
shot silk designs are all in the
fashion are are used for both
afternoon and evening gowns. Filet
lace of the finest quality and
embroidered filet net are popular
trimimngs for silk, ard also for
satin gowns, aid the sheer mesh
of the net shows the beauty of
the coloring of the silk or satin
to great advantage.
A most fascinating model that
can lie made in silk or satin
shows this combination of silk and
filet in the trimming on the front
of the gown. The stain is slashed
at thc side, showing a panel or
almost an entire skirt, of the filet
and is then draped up under a
folded fichu of the latin. This is
not an easy mod. I to copy, aid ir
fact, requires the skill of an
expert to have the folds so arranged
that they will give artistic lines.
Suede shoes with tiny straps
over the instep are very popular.
Black patent leather shoes with
white tops are worn with tailored
suits.
The addition Ol black velvet it
one of the features this summer
that is not exactly cool, bit it's
stylish and lhe Parisian design!
are emphasizing the touch of black
velvet in all tlepartmi   ���- of dress.
TALL HATS AGAIN
Silk Beavers of Half a Century
Ago Copied
The "chimney pot" is the very
latest thing in fall hats. Fickle
fashion has again made a rightabout-face. Last year feminine
head-wear was all breadth; this
year in is height; very broad
brims were the vogue in 1010;
exceeding narrow brims the vogue
in 1011. Milliners have reverted
to 1800 models for their confections for the coming autumn.
The hat of silk beaver is trimmed with a broad velvet band and
a tall plume of uncurled ostrich.
They come in several colors, black,
brown, grey, golden and so on.*
LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
HOUSEHOLD HINTS
Cocoa butter, well  rubbed  in,
will fill up the hollows of the neck.
If your hair is naturally dry add
an egg to your liquid shampi o.
It may not be generally known
that wootl ashes are a good fertilizer.
If a burn is sprinkled freely
with powdered charcoal the burning sensation is relieved almost
instantly.
The latest in nut crackers is like
a tiny press. The nut is placed
under a screw, which is pressed
ui-.il the nut cracks.
A delicious dressing for the
simple lettuce salad is made of
the yolk of an egg beaten up with
lemon juice and seasoned with
chives and a liberal amount of
salt and paprika.

mm-m\22%jtm\ THE DAILY NEWS
RATEPAYERS ARE AGAINST THE BY-LAWS
��� Dear Sir,���I attended the meeting in the Empress Theatre Tuesday evening, and heard Mayor
Manson and his colleagues give
their reasons for asking mir assistance in passing the two Inlaws
to be voted on next Saturday.
Some ..I" the reasons given seemed
excellent. We all agree that we
want the G. T. P, assessment
agreement Bettled; as to the basis
of settlement, that is a matter of
Individual opinion, and each one
should \..te mi that matter as
it appears to him.
Regarding the Hydro-Electric
Bylaw, I am sure we will all
agree that we need a permanent
and plentiful water supply. As
to the electrical end of ihis proposition, that is a question on which
undoubtedly many of us will differ.
Many of the rate payers with
whom I have discussed the question, agree with me that it is
quite unfair for the council to
siiluiiit these two propositions as
one. We all want water lint
many of us do not warn electricity; however, since this bylaw
has lieen submitted in dual form,
ami we must vote on il as it staiuls,
I wish lo make a few comments
as to thc manner in which tlu*
council proposes to construct thc
plant sluuiltl the bylaw pass.
Mayor Manson ami his colleagues informed us that they pro-
puseil lining the work with small
staii<ni gangs .'ml day labor. Ten-
den for station work would l.t
accepted from CITIZEN WORKMEN ONLY, ami would lie opened
in open council.     I  am  not  sure
in my mind as to what they mean
by CITIZEN WORKMEN, but
I presume they mean ihe workmen who have a vote. If I am
correct in this assumption, the
work will not lie completed for
many years, because there are less
than   inu-   hundred   such   VOteri
win. will in- looking for employment in this undertaking. If
tin- tin- council proposes to finish
the work in eighteen months,
they will In- obliged to hire all
classes of labor, ami to throw
the station work open for bids
from all classes, <>r io do practi
tally all the work by day labor.
The latter idea appears to mc
to Ik- the council's pet pro|X>
sition. I wish to refer to some
of lhe work already done by them
on a day lalmr basis. Their
proudesi boast i> that they have
built retaining walls at an average
cost of SI.40 per yard. How
many of our citizens understand
that these retaining walls arc of
ihe very cheapest construction,
and are figured as being 10, 12, 11,
10, and even as much as 18 feel
wide, anil that the foreman in
charge of the wall measures his
own work. Contractors were asked
lo bid on a high class, dry masonry
wall, and to be measured 8 feet
thich. Even a layman can ap*
predate ihe difference in measurements, anil will no doubt assume,
as I do, that the only way ihe day
labor exponents can make their
work appear cheap, is by figuring
in as retaining wall, a la.rge part
of the dump made by the contractors, ami which the retaining
wall men never touched.
The city is doing by day labor
the street grading on First avenue
known as B. 0, and many will
recollect, ihat about July loth,
the report for June was presented
io ihe council, and was very enthusiastically received by them, anil
the Superintendent of Public Works
was very highly congratulated lie-
cause the report showed thai tin
work for the month of June had
lieen done at a profit of some
1341.00. It seems to be a mosi
remarkable thing thai the. public
have heard nothing of how this
same work progressed in July.
The reason is not hard io find.
The work is away behind and is
losing money every day, in spile
of the fact that some $2000.00
worth of plant, which the city
purchased to carry on this work,
has not been charged up to it,
nor referretl to. in their reports.
I might go on and give many
other instances when* ami how
mir money had been squandered
by the Public Works Department
but I am sure that a large majority
f our rate payers are quite convinced that clay labor i**. not an
economical way of handling the
city construction work.
Personally, I cannot sec my way
clear to vole 1550,000 for the
present chairman of the Public
Works Department i>. spend on
forty-five cent day labor voters,
in the construction of a hydroelectric system, particularly as this
immense sum will possibly be
only a small part of what we may
Ultimately   be  asked   to   vote   to
complete tin- work.
Sincerely yours,

Saw Great Timber
'Along ilu*  Kitimal  trail from

some of  the  finest   timber one
would care to see, consisting of
giant spruce, cedar and hemlock,
with here and there a group of
birches.   Rounding a bend in ilu*
roitd  where  lhe  woods  had   been
burned off and the wild raspberries
were plentiful, our horses suddenly
pricked up theii ears and snorted.
A very liig black bear bounded
across   the   trail.     When   he
reached what he considered a saitl yellow sulphur.
without getting them mired was
difficult  one, as no bridging  has
been done over the small, spring
creeks.

dipped boih hands into ihe stream
and said���'Why, this comes from

"Following up this lead I came
to a clearing about fifty feet in

roiling stumps, with a big cloud
of vapor rising to quite a height,
Dipping my hands Into the water
once more I almost screamed with

Stepping-fl few feet from lhe edge
of lhe pool I found the water
almost hoi enough to boil an egg.
"These hot springs differ largely
from the springs I found and
tested in lhe great Jasper Bark

TWO Launches came into Prince Rupert Harbor tin' other day.
Both were beautiful pleasure craft. Hoth had come from tin* Mouth on��
long cruise.   Both had fifty H. P. gasoline engincB.
BUT one launch was towed by the other into harbor, ind headed
straight for thc Rupert Marine Repair Wharf. To Mr. II. Kuliinsoti ol
the Rupert Marine Ironworks her owners told a sad story. Hit engine
���NOT A "STANDARD"���had given trouble the whole way from Vancouver. Had it not been for the continual help of the other luunrh tbe
disabled one could never have made the trip.
THE ENGINE OF THE OTHER LAUNCH WAS A "STANDARD^"
IT DID PRACTICALLY DOUBLE WORK ALL THE WAY. AND
NEEDED NOTHING FROM THE REPAIR MAN ON REACHING
RUPERT. THIS LAUNCH TOWED THE LAME LAUNCH MOST
OF THE WAY AND ALSO LIT HER ELECTRIC LAMPS BJ
