BOARD IS AT  SEA
j
No Liquor Licenses are Issued  Yet -
Powers of Commission Not
Fully Understood.
Date  of  Appointment   is   Somewhat
a Debatablo Point—Adjourned
Till   Saturday
The license comm. isioners are still
in the dark as to whether they are
competent to grant licenses in the
city or not before September. Yesterday the full board met and went
into the question, finally deciding to
adjourn until Saturday afternoon,
when they hoped to have additional
information from Victoria upon
which they might base an opinion as
to what their position is. There
were present at the meeting Mayor
Stork, and Commissioners V. Smith
and J. B.  Merryfield.
On opening, the clerk, E. A. Woods
read a list of applicants for licenses,
which showed that there were seventeen who wished hotel licenses,
twelve who wanted wholesale licenses, three sought bottle licenses,
one wanted restaurant and retail
privileges, two would be satisfied
with restaurant licenses, and one a
retail right.
Mayor Stork traced the history of
the board. He said they met on
June 8, and adjourned until June
16 in view of the fact that no official
notice of the appointment had been
received. On June 30 another meeting was held but Commissioner
Merryfield was absent and a further
adjournment was then taken. While
in Victoria, His Worship said he had
asked the provincial secretary about
the appointments. That member of
the government assumed inm that
they were appointed on June 7, and
turned up the minute book of the
executive council to confirm it. Later
His Worship said he saw the Attorney-General, lion. Mr, Bowser,
who assured him they were appointed ou June 7, and that the meetings
held  were  In  order.
"I am in favor,", said His Worship, "Of taking up these applications
at once." They had to be dealt with
sooner or, later, he said, and he saw
no good in delaying the matter. It
the licenses were Issued it would do
away with what was now considerable of a nuisance and it would
serve the purpose of giving a revenue to the city that would be acceptable.

Aid.
Mobley Explains That Revenue
Will Probably Hardly Meet
Expenditure
The city council has passed the
water bylaw of the city, and at last
night's meeting a report on the rates
to bo charged was presented by Aid.
Mobley. These rates come into effect
July 6. Aid. Mobley said the committee had had before it the rates
charged in Vancouver, A'ictoria and
other coast cities. It was decided
even at the risk of the revenue from
the water not being quite sufficient
to pay the cost of maintainence, to
make the rate here the same as the
lowest elsewhere. It was based on
the Vancouver rate largely, with certain reductions.
The explanation of Aid. Mobley
was received with general acquiescence.
The rates are on sliding scales. A
dwelling of six rooms without a bath
or a closet will pay $6 a year. If the
house has a bath or a closet It pays
$9, while if it has both the charge
will be $12.
A dweling with over six rooms will
be charged at the rate of $1 for each
extra room.
Bakeries will pay from $18 to $46.
For a bath tub in a private house
the charge is $3. A public bath tub
will have to pay $10.
Barber shops are to be charged
$10 for the first chair and $3 for each
additional chair.
Butchers will pay from $10 to
$20.
Laundries will pay from $36 to
$240.
Offices will have to meet a charge
of from  $6 to $12.
Printing offices will have to pay
from $24 to $60.
Hotels are to be made liable for
$1 a room.
Stables for one horse or one cow
will pay $4.
Provision is made, for metering if
desired, so that anyone who is dissatisfied with the flat rate may have
a meter installed. The rent for a
half inch meter is $3, with proportional advances as the size increases,
and on a sliding scale as to the
amount of water used, the cost will
be from 7 cents to 16 cents.

been a good deal of difference of
opinion and he was now inclined to

had been cleared up. He had in an
effort to clear the matter up, telegraphed to the Attorney-General on

had received a message from the
Deputy Attorney General, Mr. McLean, on the same date stating that
the appointments were made on the

GOVERNMENT GRANTS WATER
Wm. Manson, M.P.P., is in receipt of a telegram from Premier
McHridc informing him that the record for three hundred inches of
water at Woodwortli Lake has been granted the city. This is in
reply to a wire sent by Mr. Manson a few days ago urging that
the record  be granted to the  city at Prince Rupert.
The Government Agent has been notified by letter and a record
will be issued by hint from the local office.
The reserve of this water was made by the McBride Government for the city of Prince Rupert in 1007, prior to the issuance of
certain records held by the Prince Rupert Power and Light Co.
on tiie same stream, and the granting of the water now is carrying
out the intention of the Government at the time the reserve was
made.
A record could not he granted until the city was incorporated
and application made by the mayor and council, which was done a
few weeks ago.
The 300 inches of water, it is estimated by engineers, will
supply n city of about 75,000 people. If it is necesary, therefore,
to secure a greater supply expropriation as referred to in another
column may be resorted to. As the situation now stands the needs
of Prince Rupert in the matter of watac tor some time to come
have been safeguarded to it by the Provincial Government.

lie
(Special to The Journal)
Vancouver, July 8.— Information
of a semi-official character has reached here that the government at Ottawa has granted an application
made by the G. T. P. for docking
facilities at Prince Rupert.
The proposal is to spend about a
million and a quarter on the undertaking which the government agrees
to subsidize at 3 Vn per cent covering
a period of twenty-five years, the
government at the same time having
reserved rights to dock vessels owned by it; war vessels of the government having first claims on the dock.
It Is anticipated that In this connection Prince Rupert will be made
a  depot   of the  Marine Department  Negotlatioi
to  have charge of all  the northern
coast.
Officials of the G. T. P, having itt
view the linul arrangements In connection with locating the dock will
visit Prince Ruperl within a few
days.
ties was put in, out of   which    Mr.
Davis, for the plaintiff, selected two
letters set forth in the statement of
claim as sufficient to set up an enforceable    agreement.        By      their
terms  the  lots  were  to  be  selected
by the plaintiff with the concurrence
of the defendant company, and it is
indisputable that the only lots which
the company would concur in transferring to the plaintiff were the lots
embraced in the Phillips list.    In addition to this, the prices were to be
fixed by the defendant company, and
because two real estate valuers were
employed   by  the  company  and   the
provincial government to put reserve
prices on the lots, which prices were
not communicated to the plaintiff as
the prices which the company would
accept from the plaintiff, it Is contended that this is a price list binding on the company at the option of
the plaintiff.    It seems to  me  that
this is clearly insufficient to set up a
vinculum  juris  between  the  parties,
and  that the only prices which  the
company were bound to accept were
those  set  forth   In  the  Phillips  list,
but which were rejected by the .plaintiff.
"There was in my opinion no concluded agreement which the court
can recognize and enforce, and tha
action must therefore be dismissed
with costs."

for the plaintiff; Mr. L, G. McPhilips,

Woodwortli  Interests Have  Returned
SI.000 Paid   By Citizens on
Option
The city council Is making progress towards the commencement of
work in Section I, under tlie local
ini| rovement plan of street work.
Theie are necessary formalities to
be gone through with before the
work can commence but the alderman
who was charged with working out
the scheme has made a very careful
study of the local improvement system, and has been able to give the
city council valuable information on
the subject.
Aid. Hildltch a few nights ago expressed a desire to see work started.
What the citizens wanted here was
a pay roll. The little points could
be decided later.
Aid. Mobley said that he believed
that there were no members of the
council less anxious to proceed with
work than the citizens. The preliminary arrangements must be done
legally, however.
Aid. Lynch in setting forth his
scheme, was supported by a report
from the city engineer on the number
of cubic yards to be removed In
section one to sub-grade it. This
sets forth that on Bum avenue there
would be 53,501 cubic yards; on
Second avenue, 65,453 cubic yards;
Third avenue, 21,471 cubic yards.
With the yardage on the intersecting
streets, the total aL.ui.ui is Drought
up to 221,244 cubic yards. The cost
is estimated at about $300,000.
It is proposed to make an early
start on the work, which includes
all of section one with the. exception
of block 15, near the Market Place,
which has not yet been surveyed.
As a basis on which to estimate
the cost, Aid. Lynch proposes that it
shall be one-half on the assessed
value of the property, and one-half
on the frontage. There will have to
be certain adjustments in this connection which will be dealt with
when the concrete report is presented.
It has been pointed out by Aid.
Lynch that this proposal is for rough
grading of the thoroughfares. The
plank roads will cousuuire a separate scheme.
On this point a difference of opinion has arisen at the council board.
Aid. Hilditch wants the whole work
Included In the one undertaking, so
as  to simplify  matters.
Aid. Lynch combats this, showing
that it is Impossible to so carry it
out. Under the law relating to local
improvements, the cost of any such
work must extend on!,' over the
natural life of that improvement.
The rough grading can be extended
over twenty years. The planking
must be short lived and can only
extend over a few years. Each work
must go on its own  merits.
Aid. Lynch further holds the opinion that while the rough grading is
something that can be carried out
on a general scheme for the whole
of section one, the cost of plunking
should be borne by the area that desires it, and the owners should have
planking to still them, either )? feet
The water question in the city has
assumed a new aspect within the past
few days. .Mr. Coutts, who Is associated with Mr. Woodwortli and
others in the rights claimed at
Woodwortli Lake, paid a visit to the
city this week and cancelled the op-
lion held by the syndicate of local
citizens on those rights.
The $1,000 paid by the local men
in order to hold the water privileges
claimed by the Woodwortli interests
for the use of the city, should it desire to take it up, has been returned
and   now  the  city   has    no     further
«
claim upon the Woodwortli interests
that,  were held at $30,000.
The city has not yet fully decided
upon what the next step will be in
the matter. The result of the application made at Victoria is awaited with interest and the council
seems Inclined to put off action if
possible until that is decided. Aid.
Pattullo at last, ni^ncs meeting ot
the council, wished to know if any
decision had been received from
Victoria. His Worship said thero
had not been any decision received
but he had asked Mr. Manson to take
the question up at Victoria, and Mr.
Manson had promised that he would
telegraph  at once.
There is little doubt that if the
reply from Victoria is adverse to the
city that steps will be taken to expropriate under the water clauses
act. Under that, system of expropriation the city has only to pay tlie
actual expenditure to which those
holding rights have been to with 30
per cent added. Under these circumstances the cost to the city could
not be very heavy in any event as
the Woodwortli interests have expended very little money on the
proposition.
Aid. Pattullo states that when Mr.
Coutts returned the money 'paid on
the option, he offered to bet that the
city's claim for rights at Woodworth
Lake would not be allowed. If this
proves correct, the expropriation
proceedings will probably be necessary.

Aid    Mobley  though!   there   would
noi lie any great amount of extra

His Worship did not agree that
there should !"■ plunking on nil

would be a terrible mess and the

PREPARING TO  SHIP
C. H,  Dickie is Paying Visit  to  His
Mining Interests at
Stewart.
Port land  Canal   Company   Will   Have
Concentrator on  Property Running by August
Among the passengers on the
steamer Prince Rupert on her last
trip was C. H. Dickie, of Duncan,
one of the best known mining men
on the British Columbia coast. As
the head ot tne Portland Canal Mining company, Mr. Dickie is on his
way to make an inspection of the
work going on at the mine with
which he is identified.
Speaking of the mine, Mr. Dickie,
who is always conservative In his
jtatements, said that the concentrator was being installed now and
would be ready to handle ore by
August. The amount to be put
through daily was difficult to estimate as it was not yet known how
fine It would be ground. There
would be at least fifty tons a day
treated, however, and it might run
to one hundred tons. As soon as the
plant was tried out the management
would decide whether it would be
necessary to enlarge the capacity or
not.
•An Inclined tram line from the
mine to the concentrator made the
host. a( handling very cheap. The
iumpany was also in a position to
ship the four miles to salt water for
not more than 50 cents a ton, so
that the cost of treatment was very
inexpensive.
His company were at the present
time, he said, going along steadily
getting the ore out. They were well
satisfied with the results. As far
as the stock was concerned, the company was not having anything to do
with that. The mine was a good one
»nd required no boosting.
Mr. Dickie feels satisfied that
Stewart is to be a great mining camp.
Everything at the present time points
to that. He is inclined to believe that
the properties already located are but
the first showings in a vast mineral
ridge that stretches from the head
of Portland Canal to Hastings Arm,
Alice Arm, and thence on in the .di-
lectton of Hazelton. There is no
limit to the possibilties of that area,
he thinks, and it will all eventually
He tributary to Prince Rupert where
the business of the whole north must
centralize.
Mr. Dickie deprecates all attempts
to exaggerate the conditions in the
Portland Canal country. He thinks
only harm can come from highly
capitalizing prospects that have not
been proved, and is satisfied that the
country is good enough without any
misrepresentations. There has been
a tendency on the part of some to
over estimate the camp and its prospects which cannot help doing harm
in the .end.

the writing of signatures.
Business Colleges and High
Schools, watchful of the trend of
public sentiment, are training a
vast army of young people in the
use  of  Oliver  Typewriters.
The prompt and generous response
of The Oliver Typewriter Company
to the world-wide demand for universal typwriting, gives tremendous
impetus  to  the  movement.
The American Oliver, with the
largest sale of any typewriter In existence, was the logical machine to
take the initiative in bringing about
the universal use of typewriters. It

PREPARE   FOR   nlK  lll'SH
Prince Rupert, is is recognized on
all hands, is to experience a movement such has never before been the
good fortune of any place on this
coast to pass through. The result of
the initial sale of lots in the town-
site was but the first promise of
what is to follow. The main movement will be concomitant with the
opening of the G. T. P. to traffic and
the resultant feature, the commencement of this as a  trans-Pacific port.
To cope with the rusn that there
will be when the railway conies
through, requires all the time now
left at our disposal. Charles M.
Hays on his recent visit to the coast,
stated in all his interviews that the
expectation was that the road would
be completed sometime in 1912. That
is the goal the G. T. P. has in view
and it is not unlikely that the company will attain its desire. With the
vast resources at its command the
company, in spite of the fact that
there is a shortage of labor, will undoubtedly finish the road very close
on the limit set by the officials.
Even if the lint .« not right
through until a few months later
than is set as the limit at the present time, there is really too short a
time to prepare the city for the incoming population and the business
that must be done right from the
start. ,
In- the natural order of e- eats'
there should have been a much more
pronounced development here than
there has been since the sale. The
opening up of other new centres in
the vast empire that, is to be tributary
to this port has detracted somewhat
from this, the focussing point of the
whole of New British Columbia, with
the consequent delaying of the carrying out of works that ought now
to be well In hand.
The work, however, has to be accomplished and if not done before
the completion of the line of railway
it will be much more unsatisfactory
to do after that event. With the absolute assurance that this city has
of becoming a great industrial centre
there is practically no limit to which
the civic expenditure, if judiciously
directed, can be carried. The arrival
of the new engineer, Mr. Davis,
should be followed very shortly by
a decided policy on the part of the.
city council, the members of which
body have by zealous work done a
good deal of the preliminary routine.

BIG   COMPANIES   WAR
CITY  HALL SITE
Council -May Have to Vacate Present
Premises
The city council is anxious to get
into permanent quarters In the way
of a city hall. At a recent meeting
of the city council, Aid. Pattullo
wanted to know if any information
has been received from Victoria as
to the government's decision in the
matter of the Market Place site. The
city was paying rent and should make
a move towards a permanent  home.
His Worship said he had taken
the matter up with Mr. .Manson, who
had said he would take it up at Victoria.
His Worship added that he had
been informed by Mr. Christie of tho
Bank of Commerce that the G. T. P.
was considering the question of purchasing the building now used as d
city hall for office quarters, it wan
desirable therefore for the city to
get permanent quarters as soon as
possible.
 o	
CITY   TELEPHONE
There is little doubt but that a
rate war between the Andrew Weir
line and the Holt steamers is imminent. The Weir people claim that
the Blue Funnel line has cut the rate
between this continent and Manila,
and they are about to slash the rates
on the Chinese coolie carrying. Special arrangements will be made to
enter this business on a large scale
in opposition to the other people.
There is also a probability that
there will be a struggle to secure the
through freights for this coast from
Europe. The Weirs will probably
put on freight and passenger steamers, and expect to do a considerable
business in carrying saloon passengers, something which the Blue Funnel boats have never done to any
extent.
 o	
ANOTHER FAST RUN
The G. T. P. fast liner Prince Rupert has again shown her wonderful
adaptability for the service in which
she is engaged. Leaving Vancouver
al midnight on .Monday, half a hour
late, the fast liner reached this port
over two hours ahead of her
schedule. She .was not run under high
pressure at all. The steamer brought
a large number of passengers, most
of them landing here.

New Westminster, July 8.—Two
men escaped from the penitentiary
yesterday. One lias been recaptured
and the guards are searching for the
other. Every avenue of escape is
being watched. The men were sent
from Vancouver a year ago for three
years on a charge of robbery.

GOVERNMENT   ROAD
It is more than probable that the
Hudson Hay Railway, construction of
which will be begun immediately,
will not be operated by the government, but will be leaned to one of
the present companies doing business ii the west acordlng to adc-
vlces from Ottawa, owing to the
climatic conditions i he road run not
be operated for Beveral months of the
year, which would Involve the lying
Idle of a considerable amount of rolling-stock If the government vvefe to
operate the line, une of the other
companies, howei er, could ut lllze t he
rolling-stock elsewhere In the depth
of winter.
The city council apparently has no
doubt now that the telephone system
is to become a city asset. It has
been decided to take over the undertaking and operate it by the city.
This move was brought about at
Tuesday's meeting by the city council when the following resolution,
moved by Aid. Pattullo and seconded
by Aid. Hilditch was carried: —
"That the finance and assessment
committee be authorized to immediately arrange with the Prince Rupert
Telephone Company, Ltd., for the
placing of the stock and all the assets of the company in the custody
of the city, and the amount to be
paid out by the city is the amount
paid out and contracted for by the
company to be substantiated by
voucher, and to be in the opinion of
Hie finance committee fair and equitable, and till the said amount is ai-
rlved at and proper arrangements
made for the payment to shareholders of amounts subscribed and paid
by them, the city upon proper
hypothecation of the stock and assets
of the company, to at once take over
he plant of the company, complete
installation, and proceed with the
operation of a telephone system for
the city."

The pay roll of the city for the

In future the city council will not
hold itself responsible for any debts
except such as are incurred on a
requisition from the city clerk. This
course has been decided upon to
avoid  confusion.
* *     *
The estimate of expenditure for
the maintenance of the city police,
the cost of transporting prisoners,
and other Incidental expenses connected     wiib     the     department     is
$7,600.
* *     i*
Aid, Mclntyre at a recent meeting
of the city council introduced the
subject of no mail being carried on
the steamer Prince Rupert. Ho
thought some steps should be taken
io inquire into the subject. Ills Worship said he would take the matter
up and write at once to Victoria,
where the minister now was.
ih        *        *
The city council has decided on
the report of the light and telephone
committee to pay James Milne, C.E.,
his account for $1,169 in connection
with the electric light proposition.
This covers the investigations and reports made by Mr. Milne on tbe question of electric lighting for the city.
The sum will be paid out of the appropriation made by the government
and Mr, .Milne will be relieved of
further duties.
OVERHAULING  KESTREL
At last the fisheries protection
steamer Kestrel is being overhauled.
For some time the little vessel has
been regarded as a joke in the way of
a protection of the fisheries owing
to the fact that she needed cleaning
and general overhauling. None too
fast at best the Kestrel has for
months been In no shape to overhaul
lishing  schooners.
The steamer is now on the Wallace ship building yards at North
Vancouver, undergoing a much needed repair.
NEW O. P. It. STEAMERS
The Princess May and Princess
Adelaide, the two new steamships being built for the Canadian Pacific
Railway company for service on the
British Columbia coast, will be In
commission next, fall.
The new Princess May and Princess Adelaide will replace the steamships Charmer and City of Nanaimo
which will be placed on other routes.
It Is learned that an exodus of
natives of Finland to Canada is probable at an early date. The Dominion government, it is understood, is
prepared to afford them facilities to
settle in the Hudson's bay region.
A clever but very eccentric man,

CANADA'S HOM ESTEADERS
The   United   States   Sends  the  Most
to Prairies This Year
American homesteaders in Canada
so far this year outnumber those of
any other nationality. Canadian
homesteaders are a close second,
however, with Canadians returned
from the United States included.
Englishmen are third, Russians and
Dutch  next, mid  Scots sixth.
.Most of the homesteaders settled
in Saskatchewan which seemed to be
the favorite province this season.
Tiie fame of Canada has spread to
Persia, and some ot the Shah's people  have settled  in   the    Dominion.
There are a few Australians, and
some hundreds of Norwegians, who
make splendid settlers.
 o

firm of housefurnlshers and funeral

temporary location In the Dunedln
