PROPERTY OWNER POINTS OUT FLAW
IN THE ASSESSMENT AGREEMENT
Clause 11 Will Permit the Railway Company to Take Over all the Unsold Lots and
Sections of the Townsite Company, and Have Them Exempted from Taxation for the Next Ten Years���Would Heap Up Taxation for
the Private Citizens
A property owner who has ex
tensive interests in Prince Rupert
has written the News today pointing out thc dangerous character of
the proposed settlement  of the
G. T. P. assessment question. The
article is so valuable that it will
lie printed in full in tomorrow's
issue.
In view of the meeting to In-
held tonight to discuss the bylaws,
we print in advance the exceedingly
valuable criticism of Clause 11,
which if it is passed will permit
the Grand Trunk Pacific to absorb
all the lands of the Townsite Development Company and hold them
free of taxation for ten years.
"Clause 11.���If sections 7, 8,
9 and 10 are worthless, this clause,
I believe, is dangerous. The railway company is to pay $15,000
per annum   'in  respect  of all  iis
property, real or personal, within
the city limits.' What property
dots this include? Probably both
the railway compel y and thc dty
pound]   would   say   the   present
land held by the railway company
and the buildings hereafter to be
erected   thereon.     That   may   be
what the city council meant, but
I do nol think that is the reading
of the set lion.   What is lo prevent
the Development Company from
transferring   all   its   property   to
the Railway Company Immediately
idler this agreement is ratified,
yet under this clause it appears
to me that the city could only
collect 118,000 per annum as general taxes, and if the property
holders of Prince Rupert do not
Waken   up  to  the  nature  of  this
agreement, I fear we arc on ihe
verge of the biggest blunder that
has yet been made in our history. |
If my interpretation of the section
is correct, we stand in Imminent
danger, and I ask each and all
to look into the matter carefully
and defeat this bylaw.
"It may well be asked why the
people   should   consider   seriously
any such adjustment of the G. T.
P, assessment. Many people appear to think that an adjustment
of this matter will sittle our
money market so to speak, make
our securities tintpiestionable, and
CSUSe ;i rise ill real estate. By
what manner of logic they arrive
at this conclusion, I know not.
How can  a  higher rate of taxes
upon the land held by private
owners in Prince Rupert increase
the value of real estate? How
can a decreased assessment add
to our security?   Truly a tug-of-
TWO DEAD, ONE DYING

Terrible Indian Family Tragedy at Port  Essington
Mrs. Stephens and Her son David, Die Within an

Fight for Life���Ate Salmon Eggs
From Port Essington comes news
of wholesale and agonising death
amongst an Indian family there
as a result of ptomaine poisoning.
The dead art* Mis. David Stephens

adopted daughter named Mrs. Star

nursing staff to relieve their agonies and save iheir lives. Mother
and son died within a few hours
of one another iu the small hours
of yesterday morning. The doctor
and nurses were fighting hard for
the life of the other woman at the
time of writing.
Stale Salmon Eggs
Stale salmon eggs tlid the dreadful mischief. The Indiana had
kept thc eggs ill ;>. cedar wood box
for about three weeks. Then the
delicacy waa taken out of the
cedar box and put in a jam can.
Whether it was partial decomposition of ihe egg** during the time
ihey lay in the wood, or whether
they acquired some form of poison
from contact with ilu* tin, ca in
the case of some meats, is not
known yet, but thc effects were
sudden and deadly. Seitcd with
dreadful pain the three Indiana
collapsed utterly r.i.d though Dr.
Large who wis c.'lhd in by alarmed
neighbors strove with magnificent
medical effort to overcome the
fatal effects of the food the two

VOTE DOWN THE HYDRO-ELECTRIC BYLAW
Total product

....$26,377,066
.SI,DIM,UU
For several days lately, the cily council has had placed before
the public the text of two bylaws���one to confirm the G. T. P. assessment settlement, and the other to authorise the city council to raise
a sum of $.550,000 with which to build a hydro-electric system.
With the first question, the News has already dealt in extenso.
At the time of the deliberations between the council and the G. T. P.
representatives, it pointed out a multitude of reasons for concluding
that the city was getting the wrong end of it horse trader's bargain. v .
In deciding not to reopen the question the News does not withdraw
one jot of its amply expressed opinion on the G. T. P. assessment j        This production brings the aggregate value of the mineral pro-
, duciion of the province to the beginning of 1911 up to $374,197,650,
                                                 I ,,f which gold accounts for 1132,000,000.
The question of ihe Hydro-Electric scheme is difTerent.   So far Comparing the output of certain  mineral products in  Briiish
it has had little discussion. In the excitement of theimmediatepolitic.il \ Columbia with thai of similar products in all other provinces of the
campaign it is iu danger of being allowed lo slip through without j Dominion, the report shows that in regard to gold, silver, le.ul, copper,

in value of the production of tin- province for 1910 as compared With
that of 1909 is 11,084,041, the respective totals for the two years being
126,877,066 and 124,448,026. Last year's total value was tin greatest

POACHERS NEAR
QUEEN CHARLOTTE
Continued Violations of West
Coast Owing to Insufficiently
Protected Fisheries.
Poachers were plentiful scooping
in salmon by thousands with trolls
and purse seine nets off the west
coast of Vancouver Island during
hist week. The steamer Grey,
tender of thc Canadian Northern
Pacific fisheries company, when
il arrived at Vancouver with a
full cargo of whale oil and fertilizer
from the Queen Charlotte Island
stations, reported having passed
through a great fleet of poachers.
There were over a hundred of
them at work in waters from amile
or less from shore, the bulk of
them operating inside the three
mile limit. There were among
them a number of comparatively
large vessels, of twenty tons or
more.
The Grey passed close to iwo
vessels which were inside the three
mile limit, the names of these
being read, one being the Pioneer
No. 2 of Seattle, the other the
Discovery. An officer took bearings of their position and found
bolh considerably within the three
mile limit. Officers of the Grey
stilted that thc poachers were
hauling in fish by thousands.

Lowest Prices in Northern B. C.
by a council which after next January will be a thing of the past.
Tonight has been set for the opportunity of having lhe bylaw
explained in public. Saturday is fixed as the day upon which Unvote will be taken.
There are several reasons why the bylaw should not go through.
In the first place there is the legal objection that the bylaw is contrary
to clause 75 of the Municipal Clauses Act which distinctly states
thiit "No bylaw shall be submitted for the assent of the electors which
groups together two or more subjects of expenditure, but each bylaw
must be for a distinct pur|xise, and every bylaw must Ik- voted on
separately." Even a clever lawyer could see that drinking water
and electric light are two separate subjects of expenditure.
There is gotxl reason for this provision. One voter may want
municipal light, but not municipal water. Another may want municipal water but not municipal light. Yet in order to secure the utility
thai each ileitis, he must vole for lhe other utility which he does not
mill.
There is the second objection, urged on economic grounds against
the electric lighting |x>rtion of the scheme, that the cost of electric
light under the city project will be very much greater than the cost
submitted by the Tsimpsean Power Company. For tin* present needs
the cost of the dty scheme is computed to Ih- $74 per h. p. The Tsimp
scan Power Company offers power at S28 per h. p. to the city.
There is a third objection, more |x>tcnt than ImiiIi of the others
combined. It is concerned with the character and fitness of the present
city council to carry out such an enterprise, and to Ik* entrusted wiih
the spending of a sum of over half ii million dollars of public money.
There is no denying that the city needs a water system. It has
needed il since liefore the present council were elected, and the fact
that in. steps have been taken to get to work on the building of a
water system until the COIUldl's death agonies iire in sight is a suspicious circuiiistanci.
The fact thai the council have all along pursued a policy of handing
..in public patronage to its friends, is another suspicious circumstance.
The fact that  no guarantee is given SS ;.. when lhe work will
In* started, or when the work will be completed, is another suspicious
cir.unisl.uice.
The fact thai no guarantee is given that the work will Ik- completed
for the sum <.| ���J.ViO.IMH) i- another suspicious circumstance.
The fact that HO statement has yet been made by the council
ensuring that the work will be awarded in ilu* lowesl tenderer in public
competition is another suspicious drcumstance.
Taken all together these circumstances blend llieiu��clvcs illio one
powerful reason why  (he property owners nf  Prince  Rii|K*rl  should
defe.it ih.* hydroelectric bylaw mi Saturday next.

Report on Conservation
A volumnimous report has jsut
Iktii issued by the Canadian Commission of Conservation. The volume contains 519 pages. It is
divided into three sections, the
respective captions being "Lands,"
"Fisheries and Game," and "Minerals." In the last-mentioned sec-
lion is presented a summary of
Dominion and Provincial mining
laws. This is followed by chapters
on conservation and on mine ac-
cidents, and by statistical tables.
Thc diagrams and maps that illustrate the chapters on mining
arc excellent. Statistics arc digested much more readily when graphically represented.

COMMENTS ON RECIPROCITY
The iinti-reciprnciiy nralnrs whnshnut themselves hoarse declaring
that rcciprociiy will eniangle our trade wiih that of the l'nited States

organ here with saying ait annexation movement "was started" in
this country.   He lied and lied deliberately.���Calgary Albertan.
Reading the lurid siories iii Tory papers of hard times and business
depression In the United States, one is tempted to remark thsl in

What was thought to be a
world's record in baseball was
established at Saginaw recently
by Rightfielder Gilhooley of Adrian
in a double-header wirh Saginaw.
Gilhooley Was legally at bat nine
times and made nine hits, two of
them doubles. He also drew a
base on balls, had one sacrifice hit,
five stolen bases, stealing third
twice and five runs. He has been
sold to the St. Louis Browns.

Charles Oviom, a young Frenchman, successfully rowed from Boulogne to Folkestone recently in a
light outrigger skiff, only eight
feet long. He left Boulogne in
thc morning at 10.30, and was
accompanied by a small tug. The
tides did not run as anticipated
and he estimated that the extra
distance he had to row owing to
the strong flood tide setting him
right to the east was something
like twelve miles. In spite of
this, however, he was sighted from
ihe Folkestone Rowing Club House
i-bout 5 o'clock and a four-oared
galley immediately put out to him,
containing members of the Folkestone R. C. He was then to the
east of thc Southeastern Pier, and
they advised him to come into the
harbor. Hc accordingly landed at
lhc Fish Market at Folkestone at
5.45.

- THE COSY CORNER =
DEVOTED   PRINCIPALLY  TO  THE INTERESTS  OF  WOMEN
, ��� >-**���*. n*** ..
""���a i.***a. .��*. M^..**, % ,, 'a ,, 'a n .an i***, mm '*-" **���>' "' W * ii.*>ii * iaj
This is a little section of the paper, which from day to day will be devoted
to subjects of special interest to women. Any and all of the ladies of Prince Rupert
are invited to contribute to its columns, and to take part in its discussions. Suggestions and criticisms are invited by the editor. The hope is expressed that "The
Cosy Corner" will fill a social need.
HOUSEHOLD HINTS
Use only thc centre of the
lettuce head. Break aparl and
serve at the table froma large
bowl as for salad. Dress the
vegetable with powdered sugar
and plenty of chilled cream, This
is a very dainty way of servirg
lettuce.
Just a word to women���few
though they be���who knit socks
and stockings. Do the heel with
a reel of ordinary machine twist,
using it and the wool together.
The stockings will wear twice as
long as if they were of the wool
alone.
Clean iron-holders are the exception rather than the rule. They
need not be, for little washable
cases, open at one end like a
pillow slip, are easily made, and
can be renewed as often as desirable wiih little trouble. Tie the
cases on with loops.
Corn Fritters
To a cupful ol fresh corn pulp
cut from the ear allow a half cup
cracker crumbs mixed with half
a cup of milk. Add two eggs,
whites and yolks beaten together
and season with salt and pepper.
Have ready a very hot spider or
pancake griddle well greased wiih
butter, and drop in the batter a
spoonful at a time. When the
fritters are brown on one side, turn
to the other, that they may be
wellcooked through. Four minutes
will make them a golden brown.
Fashion Hint
The great variety that is displayed in the fashions this season
is really astonishing. Given precisely the s-ime colors and materials
thc dressmakers are constantly
evolving new styles that are absolutely unlike anything that has
gone before.
Good  Tip
If wa.er be of little use when
cleaning lamp chimneys which have
become very much blackened with
smoke the experiment should be
made of mixing a little spirits of
wine with the water. This will
remove the grease which is contained in the lampblack.
Cuban heels thinned down a bit
from the more substantial heels of
a season ago, distinguish all street
footwear of the ultra sort, while
heels of early French periods, with
upward-turning toes, are the preferred sort for the dress slipper.
In contrast to the eheckul-
topped shoes there are to be seen
occasional spats of while or castor
color over black or brown shoes,
or over those of antelope-finished
calf, which is a more practical
walking shoe that the patent-vamp
article.
In summer ties there are also
examples of cloth and leather combinations anil those in which suede
and polished leather are combined.
In dress slippers there are most
expensive trifles in lace and in
cutwork over pale-toned silks or
satins.
Making a Bed
When making the bed make it
a point to turn the mattress
completely over so that the side
which was uppermost lhe preceding night is i-ow resting on the
spring. If the mattress is in two
pieces, turn the square piece over
and quarter way round; that is,
let the sides exchange places wiih
the foot. Only by a careful observance of this turning can a
"humpy" and uncomfortable mattress be avoided.
A Delicious Sweet
Wet one and one-half pounds of
light brown sugar with half a
pint of cold milk. Put Into v.
granite or porcelain lined saucepan
and tn.il until a little dropped into
iced water forms a soft ball between the finger and thumb. Add
a heaping teaspoonful of butter;
take from the fire, beat hard,
adding as you beat a cupful of
Fnglish walnuts or hickory nuts,
broken into small bits. Flavor
with vanilla and drop upon a
shallow buttered pan.
THE PICTURE
The picture of a little child
Hangs on my wall and smiles;
'tis you
When you were seven years old���
you smiled
Even then as no one else can do.
And yet, dear love, you never knew
Whom you were blessing then,
nor now
The little curves that painter drew
Would be your lovt r's daydream
now.
Had you died then, they would
have said,
"Only a little girl is dead";
They could not (how could  I)
have known
That, without seeing even or grieving,
My soul had lost beyond retrieving
The one soul born to be its own.
���E. C. K. Elisor, in the London
Nation.
ALLS FOR THE BEST-
WOMAN POLICE OFFICER
Miss Mary Brown Appointed to
Seattle Force
Seattle, Aug. 29.���Mayor Dilling the other day appointed a
police woman, Miss Mary E.
Brown, who will look after wayward girls. Miss Brown will be
a regularly commissioned police
officer working under Chief Ban-
nick.
Miss Brown has passed a number of years in similar work for
thc W. C. T. U. She is national
superintendent of the curfew for
that organization and in charge of
the purity department of Washington State.
Healthgrams
Constant worrying about your
health is one way of giving yourself
genuine cause for worry.
The glow of health insures the
glee of life.
Your health tomorrow depends
on your habits today.
If you call the phy.iician early
it won't be "to late."
To keep'.-ontagiousdiseasesaway
���keep away from them.
All's for the best, be sanguine and
cheerful,
Troubles and sorrows are friends
in disguise;
Nothing but folly goes faithless and
fearful,
Courage for ever is happy and
wise.
All's for the best, if a man will
but know it,
Providence wishes us all to bibles! ;
This is no dream of the pundit or
poet,
Heaven is gracious, and all's for
the best.
All's for thc best, then fling away
terrors,
Meet all your fears and your foes
in thc van,
And in thc midst of your dangers
and errors
Trust like a child while you strive
like a man.
All's for  the best  unbiased,  unbounded
Providence reigns from the east
to the west.
And by both wisdom and virtue
surrounded
Hope and Ir* happy that all's
for the best.

TWO IMPORTANT TUNNELS
MAKE PROGRESS ON G.T.P.
Main One at Mile 144 Will  be Completed  by October
When Steel Can be Rushed to Skeena Crossing
���Snowslide Tunnel a Great Success���Preparations for President's Party
General Superintendent Mehan
of the (">. T. P. lias every confidence that Bteel will be al Skeena
River Crossing before the Bevere
s|it-l of the winter Bets in.
The contractor for the tunnel
al Mile 1*14 which is at present the
main cause "i delay in the laying
of Bteel beyond that puint, has
promised to have the tunnel finish*
fil by October.
"That being so," says General
Superintendent Mehan, "1 can
count .ui getting Bteel laid as far
as Skeena River Crossing before
the extreme fold weather i-oiiii's to
retard  the work.    1  understand
tli.u lasi winter was an exceptional
ly severe one and do not anticipate
any recurrence of the difficulties
we cotnbatted then.
"Construction of the tunnel at
Mile II to do away with the risk
from the big snow slide is making
great progress. This tunnel promises in be in every way a success,
and will save much trouble and
expense when the line is complete."
Everything is shipshape now for
the arrival of the Hays party
tomorrow and preparations are
complete for tluir trip up t"
Hazelton where they will spend
a lew days. Mr. Hays' trip is

"This man knows I cannot
discharge him without the con-
seni of the council, and therefore
he stabs me in the back on every
opportunity.
"1   would   therefore ask that
I be given power to discharge
ihis man, as I do not feel that
I  can continue t<> manage the
electric   light   plant   while   his
dirty   tactics are  being earrietl
on  behind  my  back  and  are
receiving   recognition   by   some
of the aldermen,    [-trust you
will give this matter your early
attention."
Clayton Gets Abusive
There was no rush on the
part of ihe council to give the
matter "early attention." In fact
there was a pause. Then Alderman Clayton observed that undoubtedly the letter was addressed
against him although not to him.
It was a weak effort on the pari
nf a man lo defend himself against
something >.f which he had never
been accused, and the man who
could write such silly trash was not
tit iu In* recognised .is the head
of a city department at all. He
would take il upon himself lhal llic
mailer would  be properly looked
into and make the writer prove
what he said.
The altlernian went on 1" siy
that if there had to be any rejecting or revision of weights and
measures, ..r anything ..f thc kind,
he held himself ready to do it
with..iu a-king leave of any minion
of   the   city.     If   the   same   thing
occurred again he would tl" ix*
aetly  the same  thing.    The  fact
thai the writer <.f that letter
made a mistake in regard to
eighteen tons of coal showed that
In* needed looking after.
Alderman Douglas declared thai
if an alderman saw anything going
wrong he should i luck it up.
Goes to a Committee
The letter was referred to a
committee and nothing further
was -aid of it iiniil later in the
evening when Alderman Newion
used it as a pi*g 10 hang a question
on iii regard to the city weighing
scales,    lb- said tin- man who paid
the  taxes needed  the assurance
lhat he got what he paid for.
Alderman Hilditch replied thai
the scales were ordered and would
lie put iu as soon as ihe city had
secured a site when- teamsters
could drive up their wagons on
them.

Pear Sir,���As there has been no
public discussion upon the llydro-
Klectrii- Blyaw antl believing lhat
such discussion is helpful and
proper, I wish to submit my
views, which. 1 might say, arc those
of a large number of rate payers
with whom I have discussed the
matter.
.No one will argue that we do
not need the water or that there
houltl In* any unnecessary delay
in securing it.
Our council has been asked by
the Board of Trade as well as
by many individual rate payers
as lo how they intend to handle
ihis work, whether l.y day labor
or contract. They have given
us no information along this line,
bill we all well know thai the)
favor the Public Works Depart*
ment idea and the handling of
this work mi the la-cent |x-r hour
tlay labor plan. ,
I do not believe lhal ihe Public
Works Department i** entitled t<>
llu- confidence of tlu* rale payers
of ihis city in view of the work
which they have already done.
Not long ago a charge was made
iu a committee meeting of the
council lhat posl holes for our
electric light and  telephone poles
sometimes cost as much as f 150.00
iH*r hole and this was not refuted.
The excessive cost <>f the sewer
work and ilu- building of retaining
walls is common talk upon our
streets. If the Public Works
Department can rentier us ihis
kind <>f service up"ii our public
Streets in broad daylight, what
may we expect  of  them if we
place 1660,000 at their disposal
.'lid send  Ih. iil -ix miles into lhe
wood- where we cannot sec what
they are doing!-'
This i- a big job and should
be done a- a whole. If ceonoin\
is any object lO the people who
are to pay for ihis, they should
in-i-i on ii- being done by contract
and il should not be broken up
inio many small  contracts.    The
larger the contract the more attractive it becomes to ihe contractor, causing greater competition, and hence a lower price lo thinly.
As individuals, when any of us
have a lol io excavate or a little
house to build, we do it by con-
iraei which expericiue has taught
us   is   the   most   economical   and
satisfactory method.
The council were asked by the
Hoard of Trade as well as by many
individuals to allow us io vote
upon the water antl power scliuncs
separately. This they have for
some reason refused to do.
As ii stands today, the question
we are askeil to decide next Saturday is whether we want the
water badly enough to turn over
1650,000 to the Public Works
Department to spend for us w iih-
out any assurance lhat for even
that vast sum ihey will bring ihe
water lo us.
Your- truly,
