Alderman Pattullo Takes Exception to
Editorial Criticism on the
Importance of a Quick Move on Part
of Ratepayers Discussed at
Council Meeting
At Saturday evening's meeting of
the city council exception was taken
to an editorial in the Empire dealing with the petition praying for the
taking over of the telephone system
by the city council.
The question was raised early in
the proceedings by Aid. Pattullo, who
resented the imputation which he
said it carried that there was any at
tempi to hand the franchise over to
a private company, lie described
the article as most unfair. It was
crass in its display of ignorance, and
the writer was criminal in his negligence to inform himself as to the
true facts. The use of the word
"some" must refer to members of
the council, lie had never seen anything to prompt the belief that any
personal efforts were to be made to
transfer the franchise from the city
to private corporations. He ascribed
the article to ignorance on the subject on the part of the editor.
There must be a petition from the
people. That was the only course
open. At this time when every effort was being made to further the
interests of the city there should be
no such reference as this.
His worship was sorry to see this
telephone subject raised either in
the council or elsewhere. He had
before he left the city seen the president of the Board of Trade, who was
to circulate the petition.
Aid. Pattullo further alluded to
the fact that the members of the city
council were not supposed to have
anything whatever to do with the
seeking of signatures. The council
had, however,, taken precautions to
have petitions started purely in the
public interest.
Aid. Mobley said that there seemed to be a misunderstanding somewhere about this. Petitions had been
circulated and the papers had been
asked to advocate the early signing
of it. He could not understand this
reference to the city hall.
Aid. Hilditch in explanation, said
that there seemed to be ignorance
on the part of the citizens to know
where these petitions could be found.
He thought that the council might
well have a man sent about with the
Aid. Pattullo pointed out that
there was no authority given for the
council to hire a man for that purpose.
Aid. Lynch agreed with Aid. Pattullo. If Aid Hilditch's friends were
as anxious to sign as he said, there
was no difficulty about finding the
petitions. If the citizens were so indifferent as not to find the places
where the petitions were he feared
that a serious situation would be
Aid. Pattullo said that if this
apathy continued, the committee
would be justified in throwing the
matter up, and allowing the British
Columbia Telephone Company to
come in.
Celebration Day
Aid. Mclntyre Introduced the subject of the Dominion Day celebration. He had been deputed to ask
the council what assistance could be
given. The committee was anxious
to have financial aid.
Aid. Pattullo thought in view of
the fact that the citizens were contributing individually it would be as
well this year not to contribute as
a council, especially in  view of the
fact that the question of revenue was
hot in shape yet.   .,
Aid. Barrow and Aid. Naden concurred In this, after which his worship announced that the sentiment
appeared to be against the contribution of any sum this year, but the
committee would be assured of the
fullest sympathy with the enterprise.
Eats  Sweet Peas
A complaint was received from
Summit avenue that cows were in
the habit of feeding on the street
and destroyed sweet pea plots and
other garden  plants.
Aid. Pattullo thought the gentleman had good grounds for complaint
if the situation was as described.
Aid. Mobley rose and gently remarked "The gentleman happens to
be a lady."
The communication was referred
to the health committee, although
His Worship intimated that he
thought there should be little danger
of any milk being contaminated if
the cows lived on sweet peas,
.street Improvements
A petition was received from residents of Ninth avenue in the vicinity
of Tatlow and Lotbiniere streets,
asking  for  street  improvement.
This was referred to the streets
Stenographer  Coming
Aid. Mobley reported that local
stenographers were very scarce. He
had obtained one in Toronto, who
would be here as quickly as possible.
Local  Improvements
The council considered the local
improvement bylaw in committee at
some length before adjourning.
Reno,  Nev„  Where Jeffries-Johnson
Fight Will Take Place
Now that it is settled that the Jeffries-Johnson fight will take place in
Reno on July 4th, interest attaches
to what kind of place the new city is.
During the past decade, but more
especially since the alteration of the
South Dakota divorce laws abolished
Sioux Falls in that state as a "divorce colony," Reno has attracted attention as an oasis in the desert to
actresses and others who find the
divorce laws of Nevada very accommodating in an emergency. Right
now the "divorce colony" of Reno
numbers about 200 persons, although
sometimes the average runs considerably higher than that. These 200 are
of both sexes, but the feminine sex
predominates nearly three to one.
They are living there for six months
in order to establish a residence in
the state and secure the benefits of
the divorce proceedings that can then
be legally instituted to separate them
from incompatible life partners.
The people of Renoi look upon «I1
this as a very disagreeable hut unavoidable condition of affairs.. Tley
are hoping that some day In the near
future they will see the dawning of
a new era in Ne-vad* when the? stigma of being a resort for the matrimonially mislitted  will  be lifted.
In all other respects Reno- Is quite
an ordinary town—or city, as any
community of over 5,000 is called in
the west. It is a very pretty place,
continually bathed in the pure, rare
air of the higher altitudes, a center
of the Nevada stock raising industry
and with fertile expanses of land
sloping to it on either side.
Prom the standpoint of the moving picture experts who are vitally
Interested in the coming clash of
champions, the selection of Reno will
suit them better even than San
Francisco. The dry, clear atmosphere of Reno will conduce to better

The city enjoys good police protection, but that has been one of the big
problems, for it has grown rapidly.
In 1900 Reno was a village of 3,000
inhabitants. Now It has fully 15,000
and it has taxed the city fathers to
keep pace with needed Improvements.
Its hotel accommodations, so far
as they go, are quite adequate, or
would be for any ordinary amount of
travel. But the hostelries there will

crowds that will swoop down on the
city for the big light. But there are
broad, expansive spaces where tents
may be pitched, and these hastily
erected abodes will have to accommodate the many hundreds, if not
thousands, of visitors that will
throng the city for at least a couple
of days prior to the big championship battle, to say nothing of the
thousands that will swarm in there
on July 4, and have to be fed somehow.
Reno Is the seat of the Nevada
state university and the state hospital for mental diseases. It can be
reached by the Southern Pacific, the
Virginia & Truckee, and the Nevada,

Charley Cullin Cannot Get Away For
Minto Cup Match
Charley Cullin, of Kitselas, well
known in Prince Rupert, will not be
able to act as referee for the lacrosse
match between the Westminster and
the Montreal Shamrocks for the
Minto Cup. He finds it impossible to
get away for the match. W. E. Ditch-
burn will take his place.
Montreal's acceptance of Ditch-
burn is contained in the following
"I have your favor of the first
Insf., saying that you had advis%u'
Messrs. Chas. Cullin and Lionel
Yorke of their appointment as referee and judge of play respectively
for our games, but I understand that
the former gentleman is in the far
north and may not be available, and
should that turn out to be the case
we would accept Mr. Ditchburn, one
of the other names you suggested to
us. I may say, however, that we still
feel that we could have satisfied our
eastern people better than we have
and avoided considerable criticism
from them had we nrged more
strongly the selection of one of the
officials from the east. Personally,
I see no reason why western men
should not be eredlted with as much
fairness as the officials at this end of
the country, but unfortunately it is
the universial feeling in the east
that no team from here can get an
even break from western officials
audi I have been "knocked" pretty
hard in consequence of my having
agreed to men suggested by you.
Faithfully yours,
President Montreal Lacrosse Club.
"P.S.—Kindly have the cup ready
to bring with us."
Muriiina Will Not Make Trip to San
Francisco—Loss to Promoters
The steamer Marama excursion to
San Francisco is off. Now that Reno
has been definitely selected as the
site of the Jeffries-Jonnson battle
ground on July 4, Messrs. D. E.
Brown and Macaulay, who had the
big Australian liner chartered for
the trip to San Francisco, announce
that the charter has been cancelled
and the trip called off.
Next to the actual disappointment
which Governor Gillett's action has
caused to thousands of fistic enthusiasts throughout the continent,
there has been no locally organized
excursion in which so much interest was taken and over the cancellation of which such keen disappointment is felt as that Marama excursion. Aside from the fact that it
would have afforded devotees of the
glove game a chance to see the greatest ring battle of the century, there
were scores who were going just for
the chance to make the coast trip In
the comfort which such a big ocean
liner would afford with the added
advantage of having a week's holiday
with only three days' absence from
Out of over 300 Vancouver sportsmen who had planned to go to the
fight if it was held in San Francisco
it is doubtful if there will be more
than a couple of dozen who will essay the tedious trip to Reno and
run the chances of famine prices for
things wnen they get there.

It's our new and Immensely popular plan of selling Oliver Typewriters on little easy payments. The
abandonment of longhand In favor
of clean, legible, beautiful typewriting, is the next great step in
human progress.
Already—in all lines of business
and in all professions—the use of
pen and ink is largely restricted to
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 typwritlng, 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
always leads.
And the possession of an American Typewriter enables you to earn
money to finish paying for the machine.
Mechanical   Advantages
The American Oliver is the most
highly perfected typewriter on the
market—hence its 100 per cent efficiency.
Among its scores of conveniences
—the Balance  Shift
—the Ruling Device
—the  Double  Release
—the  Locomotive  Base
—the Automatic Spacer
—the Automatic Tabulator
—the  Disappearing  Indicator
—the Adjustable Paper-fingers
—the Scientific Condensed Keyboard
Service Possibilities
The American Oliver Typewriter
turns, out more work—of better
quality and greater variety-—than
any. other writing machine; Simplicity, strength, ease of operation
and; visibility are the cornerstones of
its towering supremacy in
—Card-Index Work
—Tabulated Reports
—Follow-up Systems
—Manifolding  Service
—Addressing Envelopes
—Working on Ruled Forms
|    —Cutting Mimeograph Stencils.

River Port la Kept Busy With Trade
Between Here aad the
Accommodation   at   Hotels   is   Constantly Taken.—Dissatisfaction
With Fishing Rule
(Special to The Journal.)
Thomas Thornhill, of Thornhill's
Landing, has been spending a fortnight at the Canyon.
Dr. Traynor is busy at present
getting the company hospital, at
Foley, Welsh & Stewart's upper
landing, in shape for the treatment
of patients.
Fresh garden stuff is appearing
on the tables, just a slight indication
of how early the season is at Kit-
N. R. McDonald, In charge of the
Foley, Welch & Stewart tunnel camp
at the Canyon, touched off a big
"coyote" a few days ago. It was a
great success, moving thousands of
y&rds of rock. The shock was very
perceptible in town. Two or three
more holes are nearlng completion
and will be set off in a few days.
The  wovl?  is  progressing  favorably.
The compression plant for the
ti'nnel camp is being drawn up from
the steamboat landing and will be
placed in position as quickly as a
largo staff of men, intelligently di
recteu, can do the same.
McDougall & Rankin's steam
shovel, to be used on the "mud"
tunnel on the upper end of Mile 103,
is about ready to dig. This firm of
contractors are losing no time.
Henry L. Frank, deputy fisheries
inspector on the Skeena, passed
through Kitselas a few days ago. He
notified all parties of the new ordinance regarding the catching and
selling of salmon. No steamboat,
hotel, restaurant or railway camp,
according to the new law, may purchase salmon for table or other use.
Much dissatisfaction has been expressed as it works a very great
hardship on many people on the
Skeena. It is difficult to get fresh
meat during certain seasons and the
salmon, the natural food supply, is
now cut off by law. Citizens will
probably have to sit still and suffer
the desire for fresh food—and see
thousands of fish pass the door, so
to speak.
There is a dearth of lumber in
town. The mill at Hardscrabble sent
down two or three rafts of lumber
during the early part of the season
and landed the fourth on a bar about
a mile above the upper end of the
Canyon. In the meantime the citizens
of Kitselas have to suspend all build-
operations. Depending on the prom
ises made by the saw mill manage'
ment there was very little,' it any,
lumber ordered below. Now the
saw mill cannot deliver, and the result  is—no  building  and  no work.
The Foley, Welch & Stewart aerial
tram Is doing splendid work sending
the goods over the .uad In such
quantities as to keep the steamers
on the upper river busy.
The new river steamer Inlander
which arrived at the Kitselas Canyon for the first time Friday, June
10, and made a most successful run,
manoeuvring the upper turn with the
greatest ease. The new boat makes
a good Impression. She has' good
carrying capacity and her passenger
accommodation Is second to none on
the river. As to speed, those who
know say that when she Is "opened
out" she will surprise more than the
natives. This place wishes her all
The town takes on a busy appearance every day. Sometimes as many
as three steamers arrive dally. The
freight moving and the passengers
passing to and fro make It quite a
bustling little port. The hotel anil
the lodging houses are taxed to their
capacity and the other places of business seem to bo doing a very fair
volume of trade,
Prospectors are hitting tor the
hills every day, Some very fine
specimens of rock are being brought

ah is on the usual tour of inspection

The Princess Beatrice called oi
the way north on Saturday and agalnfl
on her southward trip at noon Monday. She had a good passenger list
each way to and from this port, and
also at Stewart.
As the Princess Beatrice and the
new steamer Venture both cast off
their lines at the same time yesterday, there was an excellent prospect of a sharp race to prove which
was the faster. The Beatrice steamed out a little in the rear owing to
her position at the wharf. The Venture, however, showed little disposition as they passed out of sight
of encouraging a race. Capt. Whitely
on the Beatrice, on the other hand,
seemed to relish the idea of a test.
An interested group watched the
progress of the vessels as far as they
could be seen from the wharf.

Those who believe that the

In this new movement, gold still
holds a prominent place. But it no
longer predominates. Land and lots
hold the place of prominence. Men

produce from their pockets reports

their veracity. But they more frequently talk of preemptors, of town

power and light for new towns, o.'

Well Known Financiers Were Anxious to
Invest in the Prince Rupert
Correspondence     Between     Moreton
Frewen and Charles M. Hays
Explains Mult
In the case now before the Supreme Court of this province in
which Moreton Frewen seeks damages from Charles M. Hays and the
Q. T. P. Land & Development Company, some interesting correspondence hag been put in evidence. They
all tend to show that the financiers
regard Prince Rupert as an excellent
..eld for Investment.
In May, 1908, Mr. Hays wrote Mr.
Frewen as follows:
"For the purpose of having a
record of our talk about Prince Rupert lots, will say f explained'It "was
difficult for us to arrive at any specific conclusion as to Just what shape
your holdings should take until our
townslte plan has been approved and
accepted by the government authorities, and we had reached a determination covering the division of the
water front lots and 40-acre tracts,
and knew which belonged to each
party, I slated, as an indication,
that your holdings would he taken
From tho 40-ncro tracts Immediately
adjoining the 2,000 acres wo were
laying out under the agreement with
the government, and while 1 could
not say definitely, Hie prices for these
Mi-acre lots would approximate
somewhere near $500 an acre. You
expressed a desire for 1,000 lots from
those covered by the 2,000 acres,
acres, and while I said I could not
let. you select those lots, I thought
we would be able to treat you well
in assigning you a number of lots
at the prices we have talked of, $100
per lot less 25 per cent discount.
Will keep the matter before us and
let you know when we can deal with
the matter more definitely than In
done In the foregoing."
Again in September, 1908, another
letter was sent by Mr. Hays to Mr.
Frewen reading as follows:
"The agreement with the government of British Columbia relative to
waterfront lots being now practically settled, I am able to supplement
my letter to you of May 8 th. One
important matter I must leave open.
I canont fix the prices for the thousand lots you are to select with o«r
concurrence in the 2,000-acre town-
site. ' The prices will be decided by
our officials as sOon as the surveys
are completed and at prices so fixed
you are to have the lots, we to return
you or your commission 25 per cent
of the purchase mon.>. ton will have
no fault to find with our prices. They
will be at least no higher than the
publlfc will be asked to pay. I may
say for your protection that should
you regard the price of any lot or
lots as too high you are under no
obligation to take that lot or those
lots, providing you notify us within
sixty days. As to the 40-acre blocks
that are adjacent to the townslte of
2,000 acres, the agreement Is that
you shall Belecl with our concurrence
as ninny as will make Up the lliou-
sand acres or any less area, Including
thai 1,000 acres before referred to.
The prices you are to pay for those
forty-acre blocks we fix al $500 per
acre, which sum we reduce by your
- ommlssion of -•"- per cent."

"Dear Mr. Hays:—Your letter of
the eleventh reaches me this morning. As matters stand none of us
are satisfied. Sir Edgar (Vincent),
whose solicitor has returned to him
from here, cables that the prices are
'absurd' and that he will stand on
his legal rights. You can hardly be
surprised that my associates in this
matter are greatly disappointed. You
make me an offer of a thousand
acres, I to select; I write to you
September 10, 1906, and you cable
deferring, on the sole ground that
surveys are not completed. Then,
months after, at the Savoy, you again
confirm all the details set out in mine
of September 10, in the presence ol
a business witness, again asking only
for time until the surveys are completed. Then In a letter of Sept. 1,
last year, you withdraw the entire
agreement made in your Interview
with Mr. Baker and me, and you
substitute a fresh agreement more to
your liking. Now again you have
equally receded from all the conditions set out In that written agreement, so far as they relate to the'

There will be little more doing in
Prince Rupert real estate until your
recent great sales have been digested—a matter of many months. That
at least is tbe view of my friends,
and as they were to find the capital
and take the risks, I must accept
their view.
"I make the following sugestlon
as the lawyers say 'without prejudice.' Let the matter be arbitrated
by a friend of either party. Mr.
Choate will, I know, act for me. He
and Sir Rivers will probably settle
the matter In an hour. Or, falling
that, give us the lots at Rand reserve
prices and give us until the opening
of the railway through to make
sales. Do not let us get Into the
courts. Thai will be a great disappointment. Hut you will, I am sure,

i lie prices offered are the prices established by a l"i of Western laud

can nut Imagine. We agreed in writing thai every dollar of profit wo
reiizei] we would expend in developing your town. Your company had
own words, 'at least no higher than|" '"' °' 'and which cost them $3 an
the price at which the public'—mark
you, 'will have been asked to pay'—
you use the future tense, showing
that even if as by your prior agreement, I was not to be preferred to

It is impossible to argue that the
prices which the public was asked to
pay was any other than your reserve
acre. At your own proposal a portion of this was underwritten by mj'
friends at $S00 an acre. And, too,
your company had a prodigious
amount of advertising from my pen,
such advertising as they never could
have secured by any commercial
methods whatever. Look at the editorial page, lor example, of the New
York Sun or December 11. The excitement and eucocss of the sale was
largely, 1 believe, the result of my
efforts in  this line."

The lethargy shown on the part
of the citizens Is somewhat Inconsistent with their'activity along the
line of securing municipal ownership
of all utilities a few months ago.
Without at this time going into the
merits of the dissatisfaction felt with
the provincial government because
the charter of the city was not allowed to he so framed as to give
Prince Rupert special rights in the
matter of municipal ownership, is it
not reasonable to suppose that the
city that was so enthusiastic over
the principle of municipal ownership
a few months ago should be willing
to put forth an effort to secure the
telephone for the city. Of all the
public utilities the telephone lends
itself perhaps the most readily to
municipal ownership. There are
fewer complications connected with
its administration than there are
with some other systems such as the
lighting and the tram service.
Surely the people who wished the
Attorney General at Victoria to alter
the principle now recognized by the
Legislature of the province, that all
municipalities shall conform to the
general municipal act, have not forsaken the principle of municipal
ownership in such a short time. It
remains with the ratepayers to decide
whether private corporations will
control Its various utilities or that
they shall be owned and operated by
the peo le
opinion of all who have, made an
j inspection of the districts and have
seen what these areas 6an produce,
of yielding the heaviest of crops of
.small   fruits.
Against  the danger,of overproduction  this districl   is tuliy  protected,

When the Gaekwan of Saroda, one
of the mosl powerful princes of India, passed through Vancouver last
veek, he gave advice to his fellow
countrymen.    He is re] Drti '1 to have

Identified with the customs of this
country. Do nol drink, do not light,
but behave quietly and then you will
find the people will he good to you.
Treat your fellow Indians as brothers, for you are far from home, and
try and get the Canadians to think
well of you."
If correctly reported the Prince's

Europeans have had of the caste
systems in India. We have supposed

the customs which caste entailed.
Either our conceptions have been
wrong or the caste system is altering.
