���{tin met in a quorum of two at 10 a.m.
today. The meeting had been fixed for
ltd hour to suit the convenience of the
Jsjrman as he purposed visiting Wood-
sjorth Lake in the afternoon, and had
bled this when Commissioner Merry-
kid called for an adjournment on
Siturday afternoon.
Commissioner Merryfield had been
practically certain that Comissioner
Smith would be present today, but had
aid at Saturday's meeting that if an
adjournment were called till Monday
ind Commissioner Smith were not
present, he would be prepared to go
on and do business.
The acting secretary for the Commis-
Ision, City Clerk Woods, was indisposed
this morning and his place was taken by
J. A. McMaster, his assistant and
stenographer.
Commissioner Merryfield called for an
I adjournment, asking that proceedings
be left over until Commissioner Smith
relumed.
Chairman Stork was strongly disinclined to agree to this, and declared
that the meeting should go on as they
had the necessary quorum, and it had
been already once adjourned because of
Comissioner Smith's absence.
There was a distinct atmosphere of
Brained relations apparent during the
preliminary proceedings. Chairman Stork had made up his mind to go on with
tbe meeting.   Commissioner Merryfield
pned as decidedly set on having an
pdjournment called.
In fact he absolutely refused to go on

be unjust if not actually illegal to pro-

PARIS AGAIN
IN DISORDER
TWO bombs thrown at well-
known RESIDENCES
Sara Bernhart's Bijou of a Home
Partially Destroyed���Bomb Fired
in Home of Managing Director of
La Patrie, Which Opposed Strike.
(Special to the Optimist)
Paris, Oct. 17.���When Premier Briand
refused to allow a demonstration of
railway strikers to be made in the Bois
Vincennes, the peaceful air of the strike
was all off. Bombs begun to be thrown
and the streets were once more filled
with a disorderly and riotous crowd.
One of the bombs partially wrecked the
residence of M. Massard, managing
director of the La Patrie newspaper,
which has opposed the strike all
through. On Massard's door was a
card reading: "This is the Strikers'
first warning." Sara Bernhardt's pretty
little house at the corner of Pare Mon-
ceau, was also damaged by a bomb.
Last night the police arrested one
hundred and twenty-five well known
Anarchists, on suspicion of being implicated in the bomb throwing and in other
plots for the destruction of lives and
property.

WELLMAN'S EXPERIMENT
Crossing  Atlantic   in   Balloon   and
Out of Touch With Wireless
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Oct. 17.���Walter Well-
man's dirigible baloon America has been
out of touch of the wireless since yester-
dat afternoon and is believed to be
travelling over the Atlantic steadily
toward the Irich coast. It is estimated
the baloon has travelled seven hundred
miles up to daylight this morning.
Some experts, however, do not see
how the balloon can have escaped the
heavy storms that have occurred on the
Atlantic during the past three days.

SUICIDE IN
CITY HOTEL
C. V. DAKE FOUND DEAD IN BED
Last Saturday morning the Patrol
Leaders and the Corporals of the Prince
Rupert troop of the Boy Scouts went
across the harbor to have their first
practise in the scout work. The Scouts
were under the direction of the Scout
Matser and the President.
The morning looked rather doubtful

Behind Locked Door in Savoy Hotel.
Poison Is Cause of Death.
A case of suicide has just been discovered in the Savoy hotel. C. V.
Dake who had been a visitor there for
only two days and who was believed to
have left was found dead in bed there
in a locked room having evidently
poisoned himself.
Dake who had been formerly staying
at the Premier, was a printer. He
worked for one day on the staff of the
Optimist about a fortnight ago.
Two days ago he came to the Savoy
and engaged a room which he occupied
for one night. He seems then to have
given out that he was leaving the city
and it was understood that his room
was unoccupied as the door was locked.
This morning, however, the chambermaid while on her rounds found that
the key was on the inside. She at once
communicated with the proprietor, and
the door was broken open.
Dake was found stretched dead on
weather cleared and every member of
the party was eager for the work.
The original plan was to run across the
harbor, but Mr, Anderson, the father of
one of the Scouts, was ready with his

The Scouts landed near the entrance

At one o'clock the Scouts built a

six and one passenger.
Prudhomme took immediate steps this
morning for the securing of their licenses,
but owing to the indisposition of the
city clerk they were not issued before
noon. The city solicitor, however,
arranged to call on Mr. Woods with the
necessary papers so that the licenses
could be issued this afternoon.
Commissioner Merryfield states that
he was not prepared to grant more
licenses until Commissioner Smith's
return, but had he voted against either
of the applications taken up by the
Mayor the licenses to those two hotels
could not have been granted for a year.
Police Court Today
Magistrate Cans held police court
early today as his presence was required
at the meeting of the Licensing Commission at 10 a.m.
Two men, John Brown and George
Tibbit, were fined $5 and costs for
having been drunk and disorderly.
John Nagalla, said to be a son of the
Emerald Isle, was fined $10 and costs
for a similar offence.
Peter Weiverg the Swede who was
charged on Saturday with having entered two dwelling houses in such a
manner as to cause a breach of the peace
was found guilty and sentenced to six
months' imprisonment. His sentence
was, however, suspended and he said
he would quit the city.
'   Financial Crisis in Turkey
Constantinople, Oct. 17.���The Turkish
government is facing a grave financial
crisis just at present. Three members
of the cabinet have resigned. The
complications are principally in regard
to the army budget.
WOMAN SERIOUSLY BURNED
By   Lamp   Accident,   Is   Recovering
Slowly
Mr. Burns Puts in Careful Work and
Pilots Scow���Plans to Take Advantage of Tide in Landing, and
Bring   Boilers   to   Site.
Mr. Burns of the City Engineer's
department, has charge of the work of
removing the B. C. Tie and Timber
company's boilers from the Seal Cove
site to their new location on the city-
owned lots.
He has made very careful arrangements for the safe transportation of the
boilers by water from Seal Cove to
Cameron's Bay by means of a scow
hired for the purpose and towed by the
city engineer's gasoline launch. Mr.
Burns himself attended to the piloting
of the scow round with the first two
boilers, which for want of a city-owned
landing stage are being landed across
the railway grade, a careful arrangement taking advantage of the tide
having been devised by Mr. Burns for
the safe landing of the boilers.
In order to finish with the scow speedily for purposes of economy���the hire
of vessel being $5 a day���Mr. Burns is
having the second two boilers brought
round today and landed. The water
part of the journey having been accomplished the task of transporting the
boilers from the railway where they
now lie to the site will be quickly completed. Some temporary cribbing will
be required behind the railway grade
to carry the boilers across to the roadway, and a new plankway will be
constructed to carry them from a point
on the roadway where it curves round
to the lots directly by a level track to
the site.
Mr. Burns calculates that the boilers
should arrive at the site before the
grading operations there are completed.
The new plankway to be constructed
on the level across to the lots will be
required for the moving of the dynamo
and machinery.
NEW
Being Fitted With Engines at Davis'
Boathouse
Mrs. Martin, the victim of a dangerous
lamp accident which took place the
other day in the Svea restaurant on
Third avenue is making gradual progress
towards recovery. She had been working
exceptionally hard recently and was
feeling far from well. The accident
occurred when she was going to prepare
some restorative as she was taken
suddenly sick. While carrying a lighted
lamp towards the kitchen, she was
seized with a fainting fit, and fell with
the lamp which shattered. The oil
caught fire, and ignited Mrs. Martin's
skirt and if help had not arrived instantly she might have been burned to
death. Dr. Eggert is in attendance, and
the patient is slowly recovering though
very badly, burned.
F. M. Davis is fitting a heavy duty
Fairbanks-Morse gasoline engine to a
large fish boat named the Alert built at
Port Simpson for Peter Wesley an
Indian owner. The launch is 32 feet
in length over all, and can carry 8 tons
of fish. The engine is fitted with clutch
reverse instead of reversbile propellor
blades, a device which is being selected
by fishermen now more frequently for
their boats as giving better command of
the craft. The Alert will be an efficient
and speedy boat.

Memorial To King Edward
It is proposed in England to create a
memorial to King Edward of a very
striking kind. Instead of monuments
here and there all parts of the empire
are to be asked to contribute to a perpetual fund to provide for something
like the Cecil Rhodes scholarships on a
larger and broader scale.
The scholarships are not to entitle
the recipient to residence at Oxford or
any other university. Each of the fortunate young men who wins one of
them will go on a tour of the empire
lasting one or two years at the expense
of the fund. There are to be a large
number of these from each British
country.
Thus each year a number of the most
promising young Scotsmen, Irishmen
and. Englishmen would be sent out on
a tour of all the younger countries as
well as of India and Egypt. From
Canada a proportionate number would
go on a similar tour, and so with Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
These "scholarships," as they may be
termed for want of a better name,
would not necessarily be limited to
young students. They might be open
to representative men of small means
in all classes and occupations.
It is proposed, as has been said, to
carry out the plan on a large scale
Every year about a thousand scholarships are to be given. In five years
there would thus be five thousand men
with a general knowledge of the empire
which they could not otherwise have
had. In the course of their travels they
would come in contact with thousands
of others. They would teach as well as
learn.
The only way really to learn much
about a country is to go and see it. It
is one thing to read or hear about this
or that place and quite another thing
to live there if only for a short time.
As a result of the going and coming

THE TITLE OF
GRAND TRUNK
RAILWAY DOMPANY OBJECTS TO
ITS USE
Asks for Injunction Against Grand
Trunk Coal Company Among Other Concerns Who Have Made Titles
of It.
Vancouver, Oct. 10.���Every company
in the province that uses the words
"Grand Trunk" in its title will be called
to account by the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway Co. A large number of firms
have already made use of this style, and
an interesting point arises as to the right
and power of the railway company to
restrain them from retaining the title.
Before Mr. Justice Murphy in chambers this morning application was made
by Messrs. McPhillips, Tiffin & Laur-
sen, representing the G. T. Pacific, for
an injunction to restrain various companies now doing business in the province from the using of the words "Grand
Trunk," The Grand Trunk Lumber Co.,
the Grand Trunk Investment Co., the
Grand Trunk Coal Co., and the Grand
Trunk Transfer Co. were named.
The application was amended to correct the style of cause, as the vrit
named the plaintiff as the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Co., Ltd., the last word
being erroneously used. Messrs. Bird
& Marshall opposed the application.
LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
Experience But No References
The King of Greece is said to be
anxious to abdicate and as King Manuel is out of a position at present he
might apply for the vacancy. The
youthful ex-monarch has the advantage
of having had a short experience and
possesses the necessary paraphernalia
but there might be some difficulty in
securing references from his last employers.
Frequent Falls

today received the following telegraphic
report from Supervisor Marshall of the
forest service at Cass Lake, concerning
the forest fire situation in Minnesota:
"Reports today give 1000 bumed and
missing. The area burned is estimated
to be 2500 square miles. Fire still burning."
The refugees at Beaudette, Minn.,
have been placed under martial law.
The dead bodies recovered number 125.
Memorial To King Edward
It is proposed in England to create a
memorial to King Edward of a very
striking kind. Instead of monuments
here and there all parts of the empire
are to be asked to contribute to a perpetual fund to provide for something
like the Cecil Rhodes scholarships on a
larger and broader scale.
The scholarships are not to entitle
the recipient to residence at Oxford or
any other university. Each of the fortunate young men who wins one of
them will go on a tour of the empire
lasting one or two years at the expense
of the fund. There are to be a large
number of these from each British
country.
Thus each year a number of the most
promising young Scotsmen, Irishmen
and. Englishmen would be sent out on
a tour of all the younger countries as
well as of India and Egypt. From
Canada a proportionate number would
go on a similar tour, and so with Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
These "scholarships," as they may be
termed for want of a better name,
would not necessarily be limited to
young students. They might be open
to representative men of small means
in all classes and occupations.
It is proposed, as has been said, to
carry out the plan on a large scale
Every year about a thousand scholarships are to be given. In five years
there would thus be five thousand men
with a general knowledge of the empire
which they could not otherwise have
had. In the course of their travels they
would come in contact with thousands
of others. They would teach as well as
learn.
The only way really to learn much
about a country iB to go and see it. It
is one thing to read or hear about this
or that place and quite another thing
to live there if only for a short time.
As a result of the going and coming
of a thousand men eacy year in this
way, there could not fail to be an interchange of ideas and a mental stimulation all round, to Jay nothing of a better
understanding of each other and of the
empire and its needs and problems as a
whole.

THE TITLE OF
GRAND TRUNK
RAILWAY DOMPANY OBJECTS TO
ITS USE
Aeka for Injunction Against Grand
Trunk Coal Company Among Other Concern* Who Have Made Titles
of It.
Vancouver, Oct. 10.���Every company
in the province that uses the words
"Grand Trunk" in its title will be called
to account by the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway Co. A large number of Arms
have already made use of this style, and
an interesting point arises as to the right
and power of the railway company to
restrain them from retaining the title.
Before Mr. Justice Murphy in chambers this morning application was made
by Messrs. McPhillips, Tiffin & Laur-
sen, representing the G. T. Pacific, for
an injunction to restrain various companies now doing business in the province from the using of the words "Grand
Trunk," The Grand Trunk Lumber Co.,
the Grand Trunk Investment Co., the
Grand Trunk Coal Co., and the Grand
Trunk Transfer Co. were named.
The application was amended to correct the style of cause, as the writ
named the plaintiff as the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Co., Ltd., the last word
being erroneously used. Messrs. Bird
& Marshall opposed the application.

The King of Greece is said to be
anxious to abdicate and as King Manuel is out of a position at present he
might apply for the vacancy. The
youthful ex-monarch has the advantage
of having had a short experience and
possesses the necessary paraphernalia
but there might be some difficulty in
securing references from his last employers.

MINNIE AND WINNIE SCRAP
MinniejiApolis is badly offended at some of Winnie Peg's recent remarks,
Minnie and Winnie are neighbors, although they live on different side of the international boundary line. Besides that they are both interested in wheat. It was
not entirely Winnie's fault. In fact, the incident was due to the statement of one
of Winnie's young men, to wit, George Fisher, retiring president of the Grain
Exchange of our Western metropolis. He said that the exchange had handled
the largest' crop last year that has ever been grown in Western Canada, and for
the first time in their history they were now the largest actual wheat market on
the North American continent. Of wheat they had- handled 88,269,000 bushels,
Minnie Apolis following with 81,111,000 bushels. When friends telegraphed this
information, Minnie Apolis tossed her head and said that, mildly speaking, George
Fisher's statement was pure fiction, adding that she received 101,600,000 bushels
of wheat between September 1st, 1909, and August 31st, 1910, in which period
Winnie Peg received 88,269,000 bushels. The mistake seems to have arisen by
comparing Winnie's crop year with Minnie's calendar year. George will, of course,
apologize and the two sisters become friends again.���Monetary Times.

RALPH SMITH, M.P., LIBERAL ORGANIZER
Mr. Ralph Smith, member of parliament for* Nanaimo, is much in evidence
in the Vancouver district these days. It is not as member for Nanaimo that he
is active. Mr. Smith is giving his attention to provincial politics. He is organizing
the province against the McBride administration. Most likely he will appear
. some of these days as the leader of tbe opposition. As there is no inside opposition
"to Speak of, Mr. Smith will lead from the outside at present, with the view of heading
the Vancouver ticket in the next provincial contest.
It is expected that Mr. Smith will move to Vancouver with this prospect in
sight, so that he will not run as a non-resident candidate. Mr. Smith entered
pubilc life as an independent labor candidate. As such he was elected. But he
has been a sufficiently complacent supporter of the government to be classed as
a regular liberal. Sir Wilfrid is so thoroughly satisfied with the kind of party
service he receives from the member for Nanaimo that he has urged him to take
up the regular work of party organization. This role cuts Mr. Smith entirely
off from his relation with' the labor party as their special representative. He is

PERSONAL
Mrs. Dennison gave a solo at the
Presbyterian church last night, and her
singing was very much enjoyed by the
large congregation.
The launch Knox left yesterday in
charge of Captain Davis for Kitsumkalum for a scow load of gravel.
G. C. Emmerson has returned from
Hazelton where he has been attending
to some real estate business during the

Mrs. Du Vernet returned to Prince

up river districts with the Bishop.
Bishop Du Vernet stopped off at the
canyon for a day or two and will arrive
by a later boat.
Convicted of vagrancy and sentenced
to six months' imprisonment at Westminster, a man named Rogers came
down in charge of the police from
Hazelton yesterday. He will probably
leave for Westminster tonight on the
Prince George.
Sergeant Regan has returned from
Vancouver where he attended the trial
of Alphonse Richer as witness. The
fact that the trial was the shortest on
the record of murder trials for some
time is still a matter of comment. The
whole proceedings occupied only two
hours.

'CAREER' OF ALASKA^RAILROAD
BUILDER ENDED
^
Among Northerners Michaelp.JWas
Always Classed As a Prince, and
Many He Has Aided WilafRegret
His Demise.
Seattle, Oct. 12.���From complications resulting from the exposure and
cold endured when he was wrecked
tin he steamship Ohio disaster in Alaskan
waters in August, 1909, Michael J.
Heney, builder of the White Pass &
Yukon Railroad system and a contractor on the nearly completed Copper
River & Northwestern road died at an
early hour today in San Francisco.
Except a few intimate friends and
business associates, no one in Seattle
knew of the perilous condition through
which Mr. Heney had passed during
the five weeks prior to his death. He
had beeh ill more than a year and had
rallied at times, regaining his strength
in so striking a manner that most of his
his friends and the thousands of Alaskans
who knew him by name believed that
his return to active business life was but
a matter of a short time.
At Mr. Heney's daethbed were his
brother, P. A. Heney, and his clerk,
Earl Seigler. These were summoned
to San Francisco a few days ago when
a sudden sinking spell foretold the
coming end of the long fight which
the contractor had made against the
grim reaper. A year ago Mr. Heney
sojourned several weeks in Seattle. It
was then made known that he had never
recovered from the shock to his constitution received from the long exposure in the cold waters of Alaska when
the Ohio struck a rock and sank in
Milbank Sound, Alaska. Heney was
washed overboard when the ship took
her final plunge, but he swam to safety
and then worked with might and main
to aid in the rescue of the^women and
children aboard.
Betting on World's Series
Chicago, Oct. 12.���Betting odds on
the world series shortened when a
California man sent in $5000 to be
placed upon the Athletics as follows:
$1000 against $900 that the Athletics win the series.
$1000 against $950 that the Athletics outhit the Cubs.
$1000 even that the Athletics outfield the Cubs.
$1000 to $950 Athletics score most
runs.
Cub plungers on the board of trade
snapped up the bets immediately. Wagering became brisk, the professional
books laying odds of ten to thirteen on
the Cubs to win the series. There are
many angles in the betting. A flood
of Philadelphia and eastern money is
expected this week. In the hotels
several large bets have already been
placed, chiefly at ten to seven on the
Cubs. Three bets of $5000 each at these
odds are recorded. Little outside money
has shown so far. Tom Chamales will
take a trunk of greenbacks to Philadelphia to bet on the opening game.

FIGHT A DUEL
;T0 THE DEATH
HUSBAND AND��,WIFE IN ARMED
ENCOUNTER
Husband Was Mortally Wounded and
Wife Now on Trial for Manslaughter���Alleged That Man Wae Challenging Party.
Lake Charles, La., Oct. 10.���A duel
between husband and wife, he armed
with a shotgun and she with a revolver,
was tbe death setting for Dr. B. Temple
Smith, who is dead here from wounds
inflicted by Mrs. Snmith in the duel o
the morning of September 25.
The startling story was brouhgt out
before the coroner's jury and Mrs.
Smith was held responsible for her
husband's death.
There had been a quarrel over a
match and the building of a kitchen
fire. i The physician stopped his wife
and when she protested against such
treatment he commanded her to get a
weapon. "Get your gun, I'll get mine,
and we'll shoot this out right here!"
he cried. They met, both armed, in a
hallway of the residence. Whether the
doctor tried to use his shotgun has not
yet been brought out in the testimony.
Mrs. Smith fired twice and her husband
staggered to his room, where she followed. The woman knelt by his side on
the floor and cried, "My God! I had to
doit!"
Then, she says, he asked her to "go
ahead and finish him." The district-
attorney formally charged Mrs. Smith
with manslaughter.
WATAKABI GOES FREE
Wat Charged  With  Killing  Fellow
Japanese at Masset
Vancouver, Oct. 11.���A verdict of not
guilty was returned in the first of the
cases tried at the assizes and in which
the charge was that of manslaughter.
A Jap, Watakabi, was charged with
slaying a fellow Jap, Kawasaki, but the
evidence showed that the latter was
the assailant and came into the bunk-
house with a naxe and a gun with which
he threatened to kill Watakabi. Others
got him out of the room, but he returned
with a knife and renewed the attack
upon Katakabi, who got out of the bunk
and forced the knife out of the other
man's hand. In the struggle that followed Kawasaki was stabbed twice
in the back and died two days later.

IS ASKED TO RESIGN
Attorney-General Bowser Insists on
Liqour Law Enforcement
Victoria, Oct. 12.���Samuel Gibbs of
Lillooet has resigned his commission
as justice of the peace at the request
of the attorney-general. Recently Mr.
Gibbs in his capacity as justice, had
before him a case in which a resident
of the district was charged with infractions of the liquor law. The defendant pleaded guilty but instead of
fining him $100 the lowest sum allowed by the act, fhe magistrate gave
him a lecture and let him off.
The department is determined that
the liquor law shall be rigidly enforced
and under the circumstances the attorney general cams to the conclusion
that the usefulness of Mr. Gibbs as a
magistrate had ceased. The resignation
was therefore asked for and upon being
received this morning was at once
accepted.  .

"Can't I put on this new hobble skirt

strictly pay-as-you-enter models."���

THE NORTHERN FIELD
A   Statement   of   General   Interest
The coming spring and summer is
according to authoritative reports, to
j be one of immense mining activity in
the district of which Hazelton is now
the center. A great deal of mining capital is moving in that direction at the
present time. Much has already been
invested and the results so far secured
from development have been such as
to create eagerness on the part of mining
capital to get early into this land of
promise.
In an interview with the Vancouver
press last week, Mr. J. C. Schyler, an
eminent American engineer representing
extensive mining interest expressed the
beilef that the new mining field in the
northern interior would prove one . of
the richest in Canada.
"I visited the new mining district
in the vicinity of Hazelton at the instance of a group of men well known
for their extensive and successful mining
operations in the silver-lead districts
of British Columbia and Idaho. My
report to them concerning this district
will be unqualifiedly favorable," he said.
"I have made an exhaustive examination of the principle properties and
I am very strongly convinced that the
Silver Cup mine located on Nine Mile
mountain shows more positive proof
of becoming a big mine than any property I have visited in the past three
years and I predict that unless al
signs fail future developments on the
property will disclose ore bodies of
sensational value.
"It is very evident judging by the
interest displayed by my principals,
that early next spring we will direct
our attention to' the development of
several promising properties."
Such reports are extremely good news
for Northern British Columbia but
not better news for Northern British
Columbia than all of British Columbia
and the whole of the Dominion. But
if British Columbia will gain by this
development of her resources, she will
pay for it in immense profits to those
who thus display the enterprise and
intelligence to get into this field in the
beginning.
Financial Times Says There Is Abundant Justification for It
London, Oct. 12.���The Financial
Times in noting that Messrs. C. M.
Hays, William Mackenzie and D. D.
Mann had interviews on successive
days with Hon. G. P. Graham, Cana*
dian minister of railways, wonders if
there is significance attachable. It
says aimagamation of the Grand Trunk
and Canadian Northern Railways would
strengthen both 'companies, and tbe
Canadian railway system. There
abundant justification for the scheme,
the Times adds.
Important Biological Discovery
Stanford University professors have
made an important biological discovery. In the Topango Canyon, near
Santa Monica, they have unearthed
the skulls of thirty-four aborigines.
They are described as having hornlike projections from the forehead and
a long horizontal nose. Biologists
ar j inclined to believe that the prehistoric relics are the progenitors of
the Buttinskis, specimens of which are
not rare in the present century.
Latin and Germanic Nations
Commenting upon the revolution in
Portugal the Nelson News points out
as a curious thing how political and
religious tendencies seem to follow the
lines of race, or at least of languages. At
the Reformation the Latin nations���
that is, those speaking languages derived
from the Latin���remained in allegiance
to the Vatican while the nations speaking
Germanic languages broke away with
hardly an exception. The more purely
Germanic nations rejected episcopacy
also, while the English, mainly Germanic in origin but with a Celtic and
Latin infusion, retained episcopacy in
their national church. In modern times
the Latin nations have become largely
agnostic.
A similar line of cleavage is to be
observed in the history of political institutions. The Germanic nations have
shown a tendency to choose constitutional monarchy as a form of government, while the Latin nations have
tended first to absolute monarchy and
since then to republican institutions.
Every country speaking a Germanic
language, with the sole exception of
the United States, is a constitutional
monarchy. All the Latin countries of
South America are republics, France is
a republic and Spain, Portugal and Italy
have always had republican parties.

Granting Site for Theatre
Vancouver, Oct. 12.���The Henry George Association has written the city
council suggesting that as there is a
movement of foot in the direction of
granting a site on the city property for
a theatre, it would be advisable not to
donate but to lease such site. The
rental might be merely nominal at first
but with the advancement of the city
such property would be increasingly
valuable. An immunity from taxation,
it is suggested, might also be granted
and in fact the society calls attention
to the propriety of exempting all-improvements from taxation, this policy,
wherever tried, having proved highly
advantageous.
A Good Scheme
"Why does a player pick up two bats
ire-ne-goes to the plate?"	
"It makes one bat seem lighter; don't
you see?"
"I see. It's a fine Bcheme. I think
I'll try it on the biscuits at our boarding house."���Louisville Courier-Journal.
The greatest safeguard of civilization today is the newspaper. The
greatest influence for promoting mutual
understanding between classes or nations
is the newspaper. Universal publicity
means universal discussion, unive
investigation and judgment as to right
and wrong, universal influence bearing
toward the working out of what the
universal conscience approves���Fernie

"I try to," replied Senator Sorghum.
"I can't exactly forgive them, but I do
my best to put them in a position
when I can sympathize with them."-
