HIGH PRICES REALIZED
Auction Sale of G.T.P. Lots in Section 2 Show That the
City Stands Well in the Eyes of Outside Investors—Abundance of Money is Ready to
be Put Into This Place—Lots
Sold Higher Than Was
Anticipated.
That Prince Rupert's realty stands
high on the outside was clearly attested to b.v the prices realized at
the sale of G. T. P. lots in Section 2
yesterday. As at the former great
auction of Prince Rupert lots in Vancouver, there was no stampede, but
a methodical bidding on the lots after careful consideration as to values.
When it is considered that the 162
lotB sold brought over $132,000, or
averaged $815 a lot, the property
owner in the city can feel well satisfied with the outlook. It proves
that prices elsewhere In the city have
been very conservative.
While quite a sprinkling of outside buyers were present, the majority of those at the sale were local
men, though many bought for outside Investors. In many instances
Old Country money was represented
in the buying. The prices exceeded
the general expectations of local men.
Since the announcement of the sale
there has been much speculation as
to what prices the lots would bring.
It was therefore with keen interest
that the opening prices were watched.
David H. Hays, who had charge of
the sale, was assisted by Mr. Ellis,
in the capacity of auctioneer. Messrs.
Linnell, Brown, Birch and Rogers
acted as clerks. The sale proceeded
with remarkable smoothness.
As soon as the doors of the Empress Theatre were thrown open the
crowd of buyers rushed in and but
a lew minutes elapsed before the
hall was packed, many ladles being
present. After Mr. Ellis had announced the conditions of tlie sale
the buy began with great avidity.
The first lot was purchased by Dr.
Clayton; the highest priced lots of
the sale were purchased hy Westen-
haver Bros, for $3,175 for a pair.
After the sale, it was the concensus of opinion among the well informed that the prices brought at
the first day's selling were exceptionally good, although not exorbitant. Although the prices were too
high to allow the freedom of buying
which was exercised at the first sale,
there Is nevertheless no small amount
of elation felt that prices are so
good. The prices brought at yesterday's sale show that property
values in Prince Rupert are not inflated. Furthermore, the alacrity
which was displayed both by local
and out-of-town purchasers shows
what confidence the people have in
the future of Prince Rupert. As a
result of this confidence there is no
doubt but that the real estate market in the other sections will be
exceptionally brisk.
The buying in the morning was
much slower than in the afternoon,
as some sort of standard had to be
fixed.- Only 42 lots were sold during the morning hours, whereas 120
lots were sold In the afternoon. The
sales for the morning amounted to
$39,725, and for the afternoon $92,-
390. In all there were 162 lots sold
ror $132,115, an average of $815
a lot.
Tho selling will be resumed this
morning at 10 o'clock at the Empress Theatre and It Is expected that
the selling will be very rapid. The
sale will probably last until Saturday noon.

EXPECT NAVAL LOAN
Pall Nail Gazette Announces That $150,000,000 Nay
be Floated to Supplement the Usual Estimates
for Extension of the British Narine
Forces—Indicates That Policy
of Notherland is to Maintain 2 to 1 Standard.
London, Nov. 30.—The probability
of a big naval loan in the near future is again revived by the Pall
Mall Gazette, which anticipates that
$150,000,000 or more will be raised
as a supplement to the usual naval
estimates.
In view of the campaign of Germany for an increased navy, this is
taken to mean that Great Britain intends to maintain the two to one
standard which has been her traditional policy in naval matters for
a long time.
TOOK  HIS  LIFE
Stranger In the City Committed .Suicide in Queen's Hotel l'ester-
day Forenoon
(From Thursday's Daily)
John Kelimit, a Dane, was discovered in a room in the Queen's Hotel
yesterday forenoon about 11 o'clock
with his throat cut open by a razor.
There was no doubt but that his
death was at his own hands. The
self-inflicted wound was a deep one
which would cause death instantaneously.
A very short time before he was
about the hotel, no one noticing anything peculiar about his actions. N'o
reason is known for the act.
The man had no friends here. At
the inquest last night one witness,
J. Wray, testified to seeing him here
a year ago. He went to Nome later,
and was a member of the Western
Federation of Miners, Nome Camp,
a membership ticket being found on
him. He had about $244 on deposit in the Royal Bank in Vancouver. The funeral will be in charge
of   E.   L.   Fisher.

VISITED  BY  FIRE
Registry Office of   Provincial Government Group Completely Wiped
Out Yesterday Afternoon.
Hy   Hard  Work  Flames   Kept  Prom
Destroying   Other   Property   but
.Main  Building  Suffered
(From Tuesday's Daily)
The land registry office of the
provincial governmenl group of
buildings was lolally destroyed by
fire yesterday afternoon By dint
of hard work ihe firemen and a willing staff of citizen volunteers the
adjoining building, the Government
Office, was saved, although badly
scorched and rendered useless for
some Utile time to come until repairs can be made to it.
Happily the checking of tire fire
from getting hold of Ihe government
office prevented the chance for very
serious results, as the flames would
yrrobably then have spread along Second Avenue in the direction of McBride Street with fearful consequences. So alarmed did some of
the owners in Irloe-ks between Second
me] Third Streets become that they
jenm removing stocks from the
stores.
After a terrific tight, however, tire
fire was kept from getting any decided hold upon the government
office.
The Outbreak
The exact cause of the fire is unknown. It. originated in the basement, probably near the engine used
for the steam heating plant. The first
intimation that anything was wrong
was when smoke was detected in the
offices about 2 o'clock. Investigation revealed the fact that there was
a fire in the basement and clouds of
dense smoke irouuig into the offices
on the ground floor and from tire
rear of the building into view by
those outside showed that the fire
had  made considerable headway.
In addition to the land registry
office there was in the building the
office of the provincial assessor, A.
Cuthbert, and the provincial police
force.
The staff on duly, assisted by
others who were about, began the
work of clearing papers and hooks
out and carrying them to the city
police office.
Loss of Cash and Papers
The vault was closed and everything done to save what was valuable. Until the whole situation has
been gone over carefully it will be
impossible to say definitely what has
been lost and what Iras been preserved.
In Mr. Cuthbert's office at least
I'i.OOO in cash and in bank checks,
money orders and other papers have
been lost. This represented payments
received at the land sale and taxes
received during the last day or two.
it was in the office drawers, and
when an attempt was made by hfm
to get it, the heat was so Intense that
he could not do it.
Beyond  Control
When tne fire department reached
sue scene, the flames were shooting out from the basement at the
rear of the building. A plentiful
suppiy of water was not available
and, it being impossible to get Into
the basement on account of the
smoke and the heat, the floor of the
building soon was aflame from the
heat below.
It soon became evident, that there
was no chance to save the building
and alteni.on was devoted towards
taking means for saving the government building, which lay next to the
registry office. r ne books and furniture were removed from the government offices early, as ii seemed
highly probable that notning would
prevent one flames jumping across
the short space separating them.
From time to lime the flames
leaped over to the government building as the wind shifted. Fortunately
it was an Intermittent wind and veering in such a wiiy as to carry the
flames In the other direction, thus
giving the firemen a chance to extinguish the flames that incessantly
took hold of the roof and the cornice of the building. For some minutes before the walls of the registry
office fell In the attention of the
department was directed altogether
to saving the larger office, which
was accomplished only with three
streams playing upon it.
Danger Passed
The falling In of the walls of the
registry office removed further danger and within half an hour of the
outbreak all that remained of the
office was the vault, the chimney and
a e-harred heap of lumber.
The furniture of the provincial
land office suffered severely in the
manner In which It was removed. Tables, chairs, etc., were thrown from
the upstairs,  only  to  be broken as
they reached the ground.
Then an attack was made upon the
residence of J. H.McMulliu, the government agent, in the same group.
With the best of intentions, the material was removed from it but it
suffered very severely in the movement, and fixtures in the building
were torn down, ruining them. Windows were removed in the haste to
get furniture out. In the work the
prisoners in the lockup showed their
respect for Mr. McMullIn by an earnest endeavor to get all out of his
house  possible.
Personal  Losses
While Mr. McMullIn loses heavily
through the breakage of material,
and others suffered heavily, Judge
Young's splendid law library, wliich
was In his room in the governmenl
building, suffered damage. The
books were thrown out of the window into the mud and many will be
practically ruined.
Mr.   McLeod  of  the  land  registry
office lost about $450 worth of law
books, many of them being old reports that cannot now be replaced.
Vital   Mistake
While the firemen worked with a
will, and worked hard, there were
some mistakes made. One was the
fastening onto the old hydrant at the
corner of Fifth Street and Third Avenue, which lias been a blind hydrant
for months and Iron: which no water
could   be  obtained.
The government carries no insurance. The registry office cost about
$7,000 when built, the abstract price
being about $0,100, which with extras brought it up to the figure
stated.
Temporary Quarters
The government agent is in communication with Vrrtorra in the matter of temporary quarters. For the
court that is to be held here this
week at which Mr. Justice Clement
will preside the Melntyre Hall has
been secured.
The government building is badly
wrecked and il will take a lot of
money to put it in shape again. Temporary quarters will have to be obtained   nt  once.
Embers Carried Far
Embers from the burning building were carried across to the G.T.P.
reserve and several fires started
among the rubbish there. In one
instance the roof of the freight shed
of the G. T. P. took fire.
The flag pole on the government
grounds became a favorite place for
the flames to run up and it is charred far up its length

GOOD ENOUGH FOR ANYONE
83,000  SHARKS   HAVE   BEEN
ALREADY   BUUSCBIBED  FOR
The Diamond Drill on the Ground Today
Limited Amount of Stock at 15 Cents--5 Cents Cash
Read this offer over carefully. Be
sure that it is right, then don't wait.
The owners take a chance with you.
They put up the coal lands and you
put up tire money to prove the coal,
one-half of the stock for you, and
one-half for them. This is one of
the fairest and best offers ever made
to the public under ironclad conditions. A business proposition from
start to finish, there is nothing on
the market like it. Leases and Crown
grants to over 3.500 acres of the best
coal lands on Queen Charlotte Islands
are being conveyed free from all encumbrances to the Northern Anthracite Collieries, Ltd., capital stock
1,500,000 shares, par value of $1.00
each; one-half of this stock for the
treasury and one-half for the owners
of the land. The first 100,000 of
these shares of par value of $1.00
each, non-assessable and fully paid
up, are to be sold at 15c, 5c with
application, 5c in 30 days and 5c in
60 days. The proceeds from this
block of stock will be used proving
these coal lands with a Diamond
Drill under special contract, and In
charge of competent management. It
is expected that  the  proceeds  from
this first block of stock will be sufficient to put down at least three or
more boreholes of 1,000 feet each.
This will undoubtedly cut one or two
seams of splendid coal—then see
your stock jump. Satisfactory tenders have been accepted and a contract let to the Diamond Drill Contracting Company of Spokane, Wash.,
for the boring and drilling operations. As an emergency, and to be
absolutely on the safe side, a further
block of 100,000 shares of treasury
stock will be offered at 25c per share,
5c on application and 5c per month
until paid, as soon as the first block
has all been subscribed.
Now, use your own judgment, but
consider carefully what your chances
are of making $85.00 on an investment of $15.00 in six months, or
$1,000 on an investment of $150.00,
for as sure as the sun rises and sets
this stock will go to $1.00 at least as
soon as the drill cuts through the
seams of splendid coal that are surely
there, according to all experts' reports of the highest obtainable authority, who have reported on the Queen
Charlotte Islands coal measures as
follows: T. R. Marshall, F.C.S., 1902;
Dr.     George    M.     Dawson,    D. S.,
A.R.A.R.S.M., F.G.S., 1878; H. E.
Parrish, John J. Langdale, 1867;
James Deans, 1872; James Parkinson, 18S8; R. W. Ellis, 1906; T. B.
Cory, of the State of Washington,
LT. S. A., and our own expert, C. F. J.
Galloway, B.Sc, who is among the
best authorities In B. C.
These reports cover first the Wilson-Robinson coal fields, three miles
north of this coal land; second, the
Old Cowgate coal fields, almost adjoining on the west; third, the Alfred
Bay coal fields on the south; and
fourth, the company's own coal, all
of which are positive evidence that
this is one of the best coal fields on
the Queen Charlotte Islands. Situate on Graham Island, Bearskin Bay,
one of the best harbors in the north,
at the gateway of transportation to
all points of the world, and at the
very doors of Queen Charlotte City;
In fact, a portion of this coal underlies the townsite. No railroads to
build—just lead the coal from the
mines to the boats. These are facts
that defy contradiction, and within
five days the Diamond Drill will be
on the ground and In operation. Tills
is the only way anyone can tell how
many millions of tons of coal there
is in the property.
All applications will be filed in
order received, and only 100,000 will
be sold at 15c.
How many times in your life have
you had a chance like this? A square
deal for once at least in a stock
proposition, with almost a certainty
of the stock being worth $1.00 before
you have made your third payment
at 15c. Do not hesitate. Send in
your application  today.
For further Information call or
write to the head office of the company, 506 Pacific Building, where the
report of C. F. J. Galloway, B.S.C.,
on this coal land can be seen. His
report is all that could be asked,
practically saying that the coal is
there beyond a doubt, with sufficient
evidence in sight to warrant drilling
and development work at once.
Paragraph From Mr. Galloways
Report
"The easiest seam to prove will be
the Cowgitz, as its horizon is known.
I should, therefore, recommend you
to put down a borehole near the eastern end of your easternmost section.
At the point marked C on the map
the position of this seam should be
passed through at a depth of about.
500 feet, the Camp Anthracite seam
being probably passed through in the
same hole, if it occurs at all in this
locality."
All promoters' stock Is to be pooled
until $200,000 has been raised for
the purpose of. developing the mine.
In conclusion, you will have the
satisfaction of knowing that your
money is all goinng into proving the
coal is there, not into the promoters'
pockets nor to pay for a dead horse
of any kind, as the coal leases and
titles are all paid for and clear of
all encumbrances and will always be
a valuable asset. Fill out the application form for any number of
shares you want and address your
application to H. F. McRae & Co.,
Second Avenue, Prince Rupert, who
are the authorized agents to receive
applications and receipt for same.
All cheques or money orders should
be made out to them. You are requested to make any enquiries not

FELL TO HIS DEATH
John Crawford  Who Had  Bean Here
Only Short Time Found Dead
on Sunday.
*■ Victim,    Had     Accidentally     Fallen
Over Ten Foot Rock
Embankment
(From Tuesday's Daily)
On Sunday morning some children
playing near the corner of Second
Avenue and Eighth Street found the
body of a man lying the base of the
slone embankment. They summoned
Thomas Trotier, who, after satisfying himself that the man was dead,
called the police. The victim of the
accident proved to be James Crawford, who had been here since early
in October and who had apparently
fallen over the embankment, a distance of ten feet, striking his head
on the rocks below, causing death.
The man is little known here. He
had come originally from Sussex,
N. B., but had later lived in North
Dakota, and had then come to Vancouver, leaving that city October 2
for here. He had worked up the
river for a short time and then came
back to Prince Rupert, a few days
ago.
Crawford was addicted to drink
and was possibly somewhat intoxicated when he fell over the embankment on Saturday night. He had
been staying at the Grand Hotel but
had left it and was going, it is
thought, to the St. James Hotel.
Death was caused by concussion of
the brain, his head striking the rocks
at the base of the wall.
An Inquiry was opened last evening. The coroner, J. H. McMullIn,
was to have been present but the
fire in the government buildings prevented his attendance. Chief Vickers conducted the inquiry In his absence.
John McKinnon was first called,
lie had met the deceased at Kitselas, where he was foreman. After
working some time they both came
to Prince Rupert. Both went to
work for the G. T. P, In the yards
and worked eleven days. Crawford
quit on Friday. He was drinking
heavily. Saturday he left the Grand
Hotel.
Thomas Trotier testified that he
was aroused Sunday morning by
some,small boys and told that there
was a man lying face down on the
rocks at the corner of Eighth Street
and Second Avenue. He went to
see if it was true and then notified
the police.
Alberd Christerman, who had
known the deceased while he was
working In the G. T. P. yards, said
that he ■*■ Crawford) was drinking
very heavily.
Police Officer Bailey said that they
had a call at 10:15 a. m. Sunday and
Officer Hamblin and himself hurried
to the scene. Bailey searched the
clothes of the deceased and found a
knife, two combs and a small envelope containing a bill from Wellan
iryhus & Co. requesting a settlement of an account. It was dated
from Mayville, N. D., September 14,
1911. A G.T.P. steamer ticket dated
Vancouver, October 2, 1911, and
some newspaper clippings were also
found on him.
 o	
INCREASED SALARY
Fred Peters, K.C., Will  Receive Advance as City Solicitor—Increases
Made by Council
The city solictor, Fred Peters,
K.C., will have his salary increased
to $250 a month. This decision was
reached at the meeting of the council lust evening. The motion was
Introduced by Aldermun Clayton.
An amendment was Introduced by
Alderman Newton that there be no
Increase In salaries by the presenl
council.
Alderman Clayton felt that Mr.
Peters would compare very favorably
with any counsel In the city. In
placing his salary at $250 they were
still saving $100 from what was paid
the solicitors of the year before. Mr.
Peters, in connection with the hydro-
electrifc proposition and again in the
G. T. P. settlement, had given services that would repay the extra remuneration alone.
Alderman Morrissey, while believing In retrenchment, felt that this
increase was warranted.
Alderman Kirkpatrick, In seconding the motion of Alderman Newton,
said that he did not do so because
Mr. Peters might not deserve it, but
at this late time In the term of office
he did not feel like advising an increase.
Alderman Newton said that no re
quest had been marie for this, wliich
was peculiar.
Alderman Hilditch said that the
very fact that there was no request
for an Increase was the greater reason to his mind for raising it.
Alderman Douglas favored retrenchment all along the line.
The amendment of Alderman New-
Ion was lost and the motion of Alderman Clayton In turn carried.
 o	
At the Prince Rupert General Hospital this afternoon there passed
away Arthur E. Cox of Kitselas. The
deceased was a prospector, a native
of the United State3. He was 50
years of age'. The remains are in
charge of E. Le Fisher ill his chapel,
where they will remain awaiting instructions from a sister who lives In
Michigan.
