and Reciprocity Right for Rupert
"It was a splendid convention.
Everything went along harmoniously." This is the testimony

Mr. While of Allierni. Mr. Bladso

nominated Judge Mclnnes of Vancouver, and found a seconder in
Mr. Wilkes. When the scrutineers
had made known the vote of tit)
lo 15 in favor of Duncan Ross.
Mr. III."!-., moved that a un-
i'l'imoiis vote be passeil supporting
Duncan Ross.   Mr White stconded
this and it was carried wiih great
sell-1. Some good speeches were
made by the various delegates,
who were about forty-five in number representing 105 votes.
From Nanaimo, the delegates
went to Victoria on Sunday and
there they were well cared for
by the Liberals of that city.
Mr. Ross has commenced his
campaign in the south on Monday ;u Wellington, and will work
his way up here. As the territory he has to cover is such e
large one it is expected that he
will not lie able to address v.

days before election day, September 21.

(Canadian Press Despatch)
Montreal, Aug. 24.���Travelling
12,000 miles to intercept her husband who deserted lur; having
him arrested here three hours

runaway husband she relented and
withdrew the charge saying she
was willing to pardon him. Van

to Vatican
Rome, Italy, Aug. 24.���The sisters of the pope have been much
annoyed by newspaper men and
photographers and have lately refused to see them or give them any
information. Recently a reporter
disguised as a gas inspector went
Into the palace ftnd Inspected the
meters. Af.ir he was through

hiin to be a devout and humble

INDIAN AND SOFT DRINK
WAS LIQUOR H0CUSSED?
I Case of Josephine Reda Dismissed-Third Charge at
Short Intervals For  Illicit Liquor Traffic���Sergt.
Phillipson Wants Stuff Supplied Analysed-
Made in The City
loscphlne Red;, appeared before
Indian Agenl ('. C. Perry yeslcr-
> .'fiernoon, charged with having
pplied an Indian with Intoxicat-
- drink. She pleaded "Nol
,; ���illy," and  stated  that   all the
Itan had to drink In her premises
" - a sofi drink manufactured
'   '���"��� cily.    The Indian declared
h��1 this stuff was all he KM
'���'��� and Mr. Perry had no
���"native bin to dismiss the case.
���reused has paid heavy fines
Within the past for,night for having
'PpHed intoxicating liquor to an
it man, and for having the stuff
1 ' her premises In quantities to
indicate thai she had been running
' blind pig.
Queer Soft Drink
Sergeant   Phillipson   who  dis-
' 'Vl-red the Indian helplessly .lunik
foiling around near the accused's
premises was strongly of the opin-
"'"   that   the  soft  drink  supplied
had undergone some fermentation
somehow, if il was not actually
htKUSSed. Its effects on the
Indian were certainly intoxicating
if, as he main tai red. he got drink
HO where else. He was too drunk
to know- what had become of about
ten dollars he had had in his
possession.
Wants Stuff Analysed
To satisfy himself as to the
nature of the stuff supplied as
soft drink, Scrgenat Phillipson is
anxious to have the liquor analysed.
As the beverage is manufactured
in the city, he thinks the authorities should lake the mailer
up. It places lhc vendors of it
in an awkward position, rendering
them liable to heavy fines if the
stuff should turn out to be In-
toxicaiing.    Possibly the Indian
drank S10 worth and so managed
to achieve "the fi/ydizr.y feeling."
(Canadian Perss Despatch)
Halifax, Aug. 24.���Today the
extent of damage lo the Canadian
Ship of War Niobe was estimated.
The Niobe's metal shoe weighing
over seven tons has been snapped
through by the shock of the vessel's
grounding. Bow and stern have
both met with serious injury, and
the boat's bilges are seriously
strained. Docked now for repairs,
the Niobe will probably not leave
the slips for a matter of six months.

been found in rich quantities on
McLentock Creek entering Marsh
Lake ten miles from Tagish Point
in the Yukon Territory. News
of the big strike was brought in
here hot haste by Co. Conrad of
Carcross, who arrived from Caribou
Crossing late last night with the
story that already the town of
Carcross is deserted. Everyone
has made a dash for the Creek,
and claim stakers are hard at
work. The gold fever has caught
Skagway, and this morning's train
out northbound was crammed to
the limit of safely by gold seekers
on thc stampede for thc new
fields.
Every Boat Commandeered
Every available boat within
reach of Carcrosse has been commandeered by thc prospectors,
and hundreds are mushing it over
land. It is a race almost like the
Klondyke Stampede, and the rush
may be quite as great if all accounts
of the strike make gootl.
First news of the strike filtered
through Shorty Ausiin and his
mate Reidgood. Prospecting around McLentock Creek they came
upon ;i lone prospector at work.
In a few minutes they realised
that hc was in on a good thing
in placer gold.    He had sunk a
hole fifteen feel* deep which still
had not reached bedrock, and had
found good pay.

READ, MARK, LEARN I

this issue of the Daily
News appear copies of
the two bylaws on which
the citizens will be asked
to vote on Saturday September 2nd. One bylaw
it to confirm the agreement made between the
City and the G. T. P.;
the other is to raise the
necessary funds, $550,-
000, to be exact, for the
construction of a Hydro-
Electric system to supply

these bylaws. They are
printed so that everybody may know the pros
and cons of what the
citizens are asked to
accept or reject.

is bery plentiful. Reidgood and
Shorty Austin at once staked
claims, and hurried into Carcross
with news of the strike which had
been kepi secret by the first
prospector. Now claims are being
stakeil rapidly along the creek.
Lake Marsh is not far from the
line proposed for the Grand Trunk
Railway Branch line to Dawson
from Prince Rupert, and if the
strike on McLentock Creek turns
out to be a second Klondyke, there
may soon be something doing
on this part of the line.

the surrounding mining country

PRINCE RUPERTS PRESENT RESPONSIBILITY
The Calgary News Telegram emphasizes the importance of
building up a city on its social side.
Many believe that cities are m.ulc of fine buildings, magnificent
residences, beautiful streets, excellent water supply, gas, electricity.
transportation facilities, etc. In this belief a great mistake is made,
and many towns that might have developed into great cities hav.
stood still aud finally relapsed into a comatose condition from which
they have never awakentd. simply because of this belief.
There is something more than commerce, buildings, and sine's
necessary to make .1 dty inviting to prospective settlers or residents.:
The foundation on which dc|Hnds the future development of a
community is its social life.
It is a good sign that such things arc lieing said in the Wist.
It is sometimes alleged that the West thinks loo exclusively of tht
prosperity th.u is measured by the price of wheat and town lots.
These sermons, like those which are preached on "the gross materialism of the age," are somwhat exaggerated. There is something
better than materialism in the warm welcome that the West extends
to the str.inger.and in the optimism that encourages enterprise.stimulates energy and brightens life.
Still, in the rush of development there may U> danger of forgetting
some elements that arc essential t�� the building up of a really great
city. Slums will grow up in the newest of cities. People will herd
together under conditions as bad as those of New York, although they
are surrounded by thousands of miles of prairies. The young community is wise when it knows it must grow old and takes thought
for its old age.
What are we doing in this direction in Prince Rupert today?

NOTES DUE
It is significant to find the number of Conservatives openly supporting the Government on the reciprocity issue. Interviewed they
arc quite outspoken in their advocacy of the agreement.
"Don't misunderstand me." said W. H. Cherry one of the most
prominent. "1 have always been a Conservative, and am one yet.
1 am voting and working for reciprocity and the Liberal candidate
simply because 1 think the propostd arrangement is a good business
proposition. I am not so hidebound as to support my party at all
times. Reciprocity would be a priceless boon to the farmers and
constituents of H.ddimand. They know it. and are going to vote for
thc reciprocity candidate."
Hundred- <>f Conservatives .ill over the Dominion, who are -en-
sible business men. using their practical profitable common serse a.s
well as their pioitical mituls are saying the same thing just as straight!} .
