Within, the club rooms are luxuriously
mushed, well planned, and extremely

itrance hall is the bar room which
not quite completed yet but requires
ily - day or two for the polish to dry.
~'lk behind the entrance hall is the
ifliard room, a fine large and lofty
wm which will be equipped with two
" size English tables now waiting
wiy for it at Vancouver. The tables

A Reception Night
At this meeting it was also decided
to hold a formal reception in about a
week to which all members and the
ladies will be invited. This formal
occasion will be under the direction of
the officers who have been given carte
blanche. It promises to be the social
function of the season.
President V. W. Smith drew the
attention of the members to a handsome
400-day clock which had been placed
on the mantle by Mr. G. W. Morrow.
He tendered the club's thanks amid
general applause.
The members retired, to the billiard
room where a toast was drunk to the
club with Mumm's Best, donated for
the occasion by Messrs. Clarke Bros.,
wholesale liquor dealers.

marine has notified King Emanuel that
the number of deaths due to the volcano
and the tidal wave is over four hundred
and that there is gerat suffering. Every
one of the coast towns in the provinces
of Naples and Solerno was visited by

To Strike For One Day
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Oct. 26���(Special)���
Pennsylvania will have a general strike
for one day on November 8th. The
state Federation of Labor has ordered
it to enable workers to vote in elections.
Effective Persuasion
The fellow who got on the jag on
Third avenue this afternoon, and indulged in profanity in the presence of
ladies passing will probably remember
the effective manner in which he was
persuaded to move off and shut his
head by a well-known resident of the
district.
DEAL IN PREMIER STOCK
J. E. Gilmore'* Interest in Premier
Purchased by G. W. Morrow.
A deal of some importance was
transacted yesterday when J. E. Gilmore sold his quarter interest in the
Premier hotel to G. W. Morrow, the
purchase price being approximately $8,-
000. Mr. Morrow now owns one half
interest in this popular house.
Mr. Gilmore who has been manager
since the hotel opened will probably
continue in that position.

of several prominent British Columbia

the Haytian gunboat Liberte were

explosion on board the vessel off Part au
Prix, and almost immediately after she

NAVIGATION IS
ABOUT CLOSING
INLANDER MAY MAKE ONE MORE
TRIP
Omineca and Distributor Going over
to Shipyard for Winter.���Hazelton
Goes to Hardscrabble Tomorrow.���
Camps Well Provided with Supplies
In Sorry Plight
A pale looking man named James
Mayor appeared in this morning'8
police court charged with being a vagrant
having no visible means of support. He
seemed rather rattled, and told a story
of having been robbed of the fruits of
his labors on the King's Highway. Chief
McCarvell stated that Major had required medical attention from Dr.
Reddie since he had been taken in
charge and the doctor thought he should
be looked after for a day or two. Magistrate Carss said he would look into
the matter, and meanwhile Major is
detained.
The steamer bulletin says the weather
about Hazelton and the north this
morning was calm, cloudy, cold, with a
heavy frost last night. This exactly
describes the weather at this end also.
The city pavements were this morning
covered with hoarfrost and all the tops
of the hills within view were covered
with snow. This portends the early
close of navigation on the Skeena river.
The stage of water this morning was
two feet three inches below zero, so
there can be little more transportation
by river this season. The Omineca
and the Distributor are now tied up at
the Foley, Welch & Stewart wharf
and will shortly go over to the shipyard
on Digby island to be laid up for the
winter. Last year the Distributor left
for Hazelton on October 28th, but she
got stranded and was laid up along the
river all winter, exposed to the breaking
up of the ice in the spring. This year
the company will take no such risks,
and really has no need to do so, as it
has the railway to fall back upbn.
The Hazelton got in last night and it
was rumored that this was her last
trip for the season. But she is to leave
for Hardscrabble tomorrow morning
with a load of groceries and general
merchandize. It is hoped that after
this she will be able to make one more
trip as far as Kitselas. The Port Simpson passed Graveyard Point early this
morning on her way to Hazelton, and
this will undoubtedly be her last trip
even if she manages to make the journey
back.
With the Inlander it is different, as
she can navigate on a lower stage of
water than any of the river boats. She
passed Aberdeen at eight o'clock thia
morning on her way to Hazelton. It
is confidently expected that she will be
able to make another full trip, Harry
Rochester, the agent of the company,
declaring this morning: "She will continue to travel as long as there is the
least moisture."
There is no longer any food famine,
however, to be feared at any of the
river points. Vernor W. Smith, manager
for Foley, Welch & Stewart, said this
morning: "Our camps are now well-
supplied with stuff for the winter, as
we have been enabled to do much better
than we expected a month ago. If
we tie up every boat now we can keep
things going all winter all right.
"But then we have the railroad. The
last bridge under contract will be
completed on the 28th of this month,
and that will give us a clear one hundred miles out of this city. So that any
addition to our camp supplies that may
be needed from time to time can be sent
in by the regular train."
ORDEMAN THE CHAMPION
Frank Gotch Officially Transfer* the
Title Won by Him
(Special to the Optimist)
Minneapolis, Oct. 26.���Frank Gotch
last night formally transferred the
world's wrestling championship to Orde-
man, following the match in which the
latter defeated Kid Cutler, breaking the
knee in the first fall by a toe hold. Gotch
repealed that he had definitely retired
from the game. THE   PRINCE   KUPERT   OPTIMIST

Pub. Sept. 15. B. L, Tingley Agont
Short and sad has been the reign of
the young king of Portugal, who is
now an exile in England. He was
brought to the throne from which he
has now been cast
double catastrophies, ,^__^_^^_
be a grim characteristic of the house
of Braganza, 'and the wave of sympathy for the boy-king thus suddenly
and cruellyf raised to the throne in
1908, will be repeated from end to end of
Europe.
The remembrance of that terrible
scene of February 1, 1908, when King
Manuel lost, under the bullets of assassins, both father and brother, has not
yet grown dim. King Carlos, after fifteen years' experience of the unprincipled and unrepresentative use of
party government by both parties in
the state, acceded in an evil hour to
Senor Joso Franco's demand that he,
as premier, should be invested with
dictatorial powers, for the purpose of
restoring able and honest government
to unhappy Portugal.
After two years of this dictatorship,
during which no substantial progress
was made in any direction, and the
position of the Anarchists had become
greatly strengthened in the country,
Dom Carlos saw the mistake to which
he had been a party. He was on the
point of terminating the extraordinary
powers that had been granted to Sen-
hor Franco, when he fell a victim to a
plot, the existence of which seems to
have been known to the police for some
days beforehand.
Acting upon the representations and
advice of those responsible for his
safety, King Carlos and his queen left
the Palace of Villa Vicosa, a favorite
royal seat outside Lisbon, for the Neces-
sidades palace within the capital, where,
as Senhor Franco urged, it was more
easy to protect their majesties. With
the king and the queen Came the crown
prince and Prince Manuel. The royal
party landed unostentatiously at the
Caes des Columnas, on the Tagus, in
the heart of the city. They entered
the royal carriages without delay, and
moved into the Prada do Commercio.
Suddenly a young man dashed from
among the crowd, and climbing up
upon the back of the royal carriage,
discharged a rev91ver two or three times
into the bodies of King Carlos and his
eldest son. The queen, who was sitting
beside him, desparingly attempted to
beat down the assassin with a bouquet
that she was carrying. But the man
had done his work.
The king was dead, and the crown
prince sitting opposite was mortally
wounded, though whether the death of
the latter was due to this miscreant
or to the simultaneous carbine shots of
an accomplice by the side of the road
is not certain. The latter certainly
was able to inflict two or three wounds,
happily not of a serious nature, upon
Prince Manuel also. The crown prince
lingered only for a few minutes. In
this way did unhappy King Manuel
ascend the steps of the Portuguese
throne.
Wounded as he was, the eighteen-
year-old sovereign at once issued a proclamation announcing the death of his
father and his brother, and his own accession, his intention to rule wholeheartedly for the welfare of Portugal,
and his confirmation in office of the
existing ministry. He forthwith called
together his council and said to them
in words of simple dignity: "I am
without knowledge or experience. I
place myself in your hands, counting
upon your wisdom and patriotism."
Senhor Franco immediately resigned
his position and fled the country, the
premiership being accepted by Admiral
Ferreira do Amaral. But the troubles
of Portugal lay deeper than could be
reached by the best efforts on inten*
tions of the patriotic young king. Con
stitutionalism. in Portugal is a mere
farce,   The radicals of the country are
allewed to have but a small minority
in the assembly. There is eo real liberty, either of speech or of the press,
and the position iB made doubly hope-
by one of those I less by the fact that the close oligarchy
which are said to ' in whose hands all real powers reside
are able to cast the odium for every act
of oppression or injustice, of which
they are themselves guilty upon the
shoulders of the king. Under such circumstances it is not to be wondered at
that anarchism has gained in strength
from year to year.
King Manuel was a universal favorite
with his brother soverigns. He was a
special friend of the king of Spain, whom
he repeatedly visited. His only visit
abroad since his succession was paid
to France and England. He was well
received in both countries. During this
short travel the young king's name was
mentioned with more than one of the
younger princesses of the royal houses
of Europe, and it was rumored that it
was not impossible that the immemorial
ties that link Portugal with her oldest
ally, England, might one day have been
strengthened. But the position in Pot-
tugal demanded a stronger hand than
Manuel's. After the despotic rule of
France a political change was obviously
necessary, but it is possible that' no
alteration could have satisfied the seditious crowd that ever more and more
closely thronged round the gates of the
Necessidades palace with hardly-veiled
menaces. King Manuel attempted a
conciliatory policy towards his enemies,
but to no purpose. The underground
forces were unrelentingly at work, and
now revolution has robbed the young
monarch of his throne, as anarchism
deprived his father of life.

Co-operation Between Government*
of Canada and United State*
Washington, D. C, Oct. 22.���The administration has decided that the immigration and customs officers stationed
dong the Canadian frontier are to
co-operate more closely than ever.
Orders just issued by the treasury department, direct customs officers at
ports on or near the Canadian boundary
line where immigration officers are
stationed to inform the immigration
officers upon the entry of any household
effects under section 620 of the new
tariff law.
The immigration official will be permitted to examine the entry papers
covering these effects with a view to
locating and accounting for the settlers
on the immigration records. This action
is expected to result in a greater fund
of information concerning the circumstances of the settlers who head this
way across the line. The tariff section
referred to permits the free entry of
books, libraries, usual and reasonable
furniture and similar household effects
of peisons or families from foreign
countries if actually used abroad by
them for a year or more and not intended for sale if for any other person
or pel sons.

Outlook for Political Supremacy in
United State* Section*
The New York Herald, which has
long been noted for preparing its election
forecast dispassionately, has been gather
ing information and studying the political situation throughout the United
States, and sums up its conclusions in
regard to the probabilities in the impending Congressional elections as follows:
Democratic members of the next
House, 141; Republican members, 132;
doubtful, 118.
In the doubtful list, 82 places are
now held by Republicans and 36 are
held by Democrats.
There are 217 Republicans and 174
Democrats in the present House, making a Republican majority of thirty-
three. If the Democrats can hold the
places they now possess, they need
gain but seventeen places to win control
oi the next House.
Says the New York Herald: "The
plain inference from these figures would
be that at the outset of the campaign
the Republican party is showing a disposition to go to pieces and prepare for
the worst whipping it has had in many
years. It must be admitted, however,
that even as this article is being prepared there are signs here and there
throughout the country that the Republicans are recovering from their panic.
The buoyancy of the Democracy is not
quite so apparent. It is going to be
a battle rdyal, anyway."

FAVORS SINGLE TAX
The adoption of the single tax system promulgated by Henry George, by the
city of New Westminster is advocated by Mayor Lee and if he is re-elected to the
position of chief magistrate of the city for another term this is probably one of
the first matters which he will bring up for consideration by the new City council
and the citizens generally. The system in its entirety is not favored by the Mayor
but only in so far as it provides for the taxation of land only and exempts improvements. This will tend to place a premium on improvements in the city while
discouraging the holding of unimproved city property for speculative purposes.
Mayor Lee is now looking for two men qualified to undertake the reassessment
of the city. A short time ago he brought to the attention of the city council the
need of a more equitable assessment and at the last meeting he was authorized
to suggest the names of men qualified to undertake the work. His idea is that two
experienced men should be secured who would proceed with the work forthwith
in' order that it might be completed early next year.
To a representative of the British Columbian Mayor Lee pointed out that
at the present time the assessment of the city is not at all equitable. In some
cases property is assessed up to nearly its full selling value while in other cases
only a small percentage of the value is assessed. Assessment Commissioner Frank
Broad is doing something on the assessment for next year and it is the idea of the
council that the experts engaged should revise the work already done and place
everything on a proper basis.
The tax rate for this year and, indeed, for some time past, has been 24 mills
on the dollar. His Worship is of the opinion that with the readjustment of the
assessment of property in the city this rate may be considerably reduced this
year. If, however, improvements are exempt from taxation next year the possible
reduction in the tax rate is not likely to be so great. Upon the appointment of
assessment specialists the city council will decide what proportion of the selling
value of the property is to be assessed.
Thus is Prince Rupert's lead being followed up by other cities. The St. Johns,
N. B., Telegraph also comments on this system pf taxation and urges its adoption
in that city.   The Telegraph says:
"The movement to tax land values is gaining ground. It has been taken up
in Vancouver, Edmonton and Prince Rupert, and is under consideration in Winnipeg. The Ottawa Journal urges that city to take up the subject, and endeavor
to secure provincial legislation which will give the city the legal power to tax only
land values. At the last session of the Ontario legislature a measure giving the
municipality the option of taxing land values alone was introduced, but was turned
down by Sir James Whitney. The Ottawa Journal declares that it ought to come
up again and ought to be adopted."

U. S. Corporation Tax
Washington, Oct. 22.���Practically all
of the corporation tax, aggregating in
excess of $27,000,000 has been collected
by the treasury department. Officials
say it was collected with less annoyance
and was apparently paid with less

FREIGHT TRAINS MAY RUN
To Mile 100 When Ballasting Is Completed
Now that the bridge across the Kitsumkalum river is being completed
General Superintendent Mehan expects
that rapid progress will be made with
the track laying up to Mile 100, and
when the century is reached ballasting
will be in progress over the whole mileage
requiring it. The bridge will be finished
about the end of this week. The general
superintendent thinks it quite possible
that once the line is ballasted, a regular
service of freight trains may be run as
far as Mile 100 from where supplies
may be packed further inland by horses.

in present use are not creosoted, and
their life time is only about two years,

BIG COLONY

NINETY   THOUSAND   ACRES   OF
LAND PURCHASED
Fisrt Payment of Fifty-five Thousand
Dollars to Be Made Provincial Government.���Norton Griffiths at the
Head of Project.
Victoria, Oct. 22.���There has just
been deposited with the government of
British Columbia $55,000 as a first payment on account of the purchase of
ninety thousand acres for the general
colonization project initiated by Mr.
Norton Griffiths, member of the British
House of Commons, and a millionaire
railway contractor.
Mr. S. E. Oliver, the company's
special agent, made the payment.
The lands are in the most fertile section of the Naas river valley which
extends to the west of the Skeena
river valley. Mr. Griffiths intends to
promote a movement for locating British
agriculturists on these lands.
The Earl of Dunmore is one of the
members of his company.
SONGS OF THE HOMELAND
Miss  Lena  Duthie's  Entertainment
Last Night Is Appreciated Fully
The Scotch, Canadian Scotch, and
Irish enthusiasts who thronged last
night to the Maclntyre Hall to hear
Miss Lena Duthie sing the old country
songs in national costume, were enthusiastic in their appreciation of their
entertainment. The hall resounded
again and again to their applause. Miss
Lena Duthie is an entertainer of the
first class in song and story and to miss
hearing her is to miss a treat.
The full and varied program she gave
last night included such favorites as
"Mary o' Argyle, "The Lea Rig," "Caller
Herrin," and "The Hundred Pipers," all
sung by Miss Duthie with the genuine
ring that thrills her audiences wherever
Those kindly Irish numbers so sympathetically rendered with all their
native humor and pathos, "The Harp of
Tara," "The Kerry Dance," and "Rory
O'More," with other favorites and many
a quaint and delightful Irish story
pleased the audience immensely.
One song, too, of particular appeal to
the Scottish West Highlander, and
Hebridean Islesman, was sung with
true feeling by Miss Duthrie. The
infiinte yearning and pathos of the old
air and words of "Turn Ye to Me"
brings back to the Islesman's ear memories of the distant surges on the coasts
of Skye and the Lewis Islands, the
gleam of the starlight on the tumbling
waves off the rugged yet kindly western
coasts of Scotland.
Tonight Miss Duthie gives an entirely new program from her inexhaustible store of the old land's old
favorites.
GOT CASH CROOKEDLY
And  Has to  Answer  for  It  Before
Magistrate
A man named Herbert appeared
before Magistrate Carss this morning
charged with having obtained the sum
of $20 by false pretenses. He admitted
having done so, but urged in extenuation of his act that he had wanted the
cash to tide him over until some money
arrived for him from Vancouver, when
he would repay the sum obtained
irregularly. The Chief of Police asked
that accused be remanded until tomorrow morning in order that evidence
might be obtained. Accused asked that
bail be allowed, whereupon the Chief
of Police called the court's attention to
the fact that other changes were pending
against Herbert and Magistrate Carss
remarked that to grant bail was hardly
worth while as accused was only remanded for one day.

TOMMY BURNS WILL MEET
SEVERAL ENGLISH HEAVIES
||i mArmut mA*nm*rm h^u'^ii^ii^ h*.
If the words ol our friend Tommy
Burns, our own Canadian champion come
true, and his hopes realized, there is
going to be an awful sick ebony-hued
Boston citizen, travelling under the
cogomen of Sam Langford about the
streets of London some time in March.
Tommy has been matched with the
black, and is going to fight him, and
according to the expression hiade recently by the white fighter the champion
of former days is going to regain his lost
laurels, and make the Tar Baby hike
back to the Bean City with the recollection of a bunch of Halley's comets
seen through the roof of the Olympic
hall in London.
Tommy, upon his arrival at Vancouver,
immediately hunted up his old friend
Billy Woods. Tommy was accompanied
by his brother-in-law, Mr. Keating, a
well-known theatrical man and fight
impressario. Burns is in the theatrical
business at present, and is treading the
Thespian boards, while his leg, injured
recently in a lacrosse game in Vancouver
becomes strong.
Burns has been making good in the
show game, and at Portland, at Mr.
Keating's house, the Lyric, drew the
second largest week ever recorded in the
ten years that the house has been running. The only day when the attendance beat the crowd that turned out
to watch Tommy was the Majorie Mahr
benefit, given for the unfortunate young
chorus girl, well-known in Vancouver,
who lost both her legs beneath the
wheels of a Southern Pacific locomotive.
Tommy is doing the monologue stunt,
supplemented with pictures of fights,
such as the Squires, Johnson and Moir
fights. Tommy is pretty handy when it
comes to passing out the vernacular, and
introduces a few jests hi which he, Tommy, is the fall one.
Burns iB full of confidence regarding his fight with the Tar Baby, and
stated that he did not feel confident
of hanging the sleep producer on the
chocolate, that he would not fight.
Tommy, as is well known, is not of
the Ketchell or Willie Britt type, being on the contrary one of the regular
passengers on the buttermilk cart.
Nine o'clock and it is the hay for Burns,
and six o'clock, when the birds are out
looking for the first worm, is the time
our champion rises from his humble cot.
Burns has just received a wire from
Mcintosh, asking the fighter if he will

be willing to take on a few of the loudly-
tooted English "are-to-bes." Tommy
has answered the impressario that he
will be in the tight little isle about
the first of February, and will take
on "Bombardier" Wells and show him
how they fight in the west. Some
time toward the latter part of February, and after Tommy has instructed a
few of the heavies of the old country
in the manly art of self defense, the
real big affair between Tommy and the
terrible Boston ebony will start.
According to information received
from Hugh, this is going to be the
affair de luxe in English sporting circles. And after this affair d'honeur,
the winner is going to have the chance
at the king-pin of them all, the Galveston citizen, Mr. Johnsing. Jack, after
he had put the "Hope" to sleep at
Reno last July promised Burns the
next chance for the championship in
the following words:
"Tommy you gave me a chance at
the title, and I am going to give you
a chance to win it back."
Burns is now headed for Calgary,
where he will put on his show, and
leaving that city will tour the prairie,
cities, showing the populace of that
section the way titles are won and lost.

unkind.���Shakespeare.

THIS PROVINCE
IS BACKWARD
SAYS REPORT OF DEPARTMENT
OF INDIAN AFFAIRS
Aborigine* Prosperous Everywhere in
Canada Except in Naas and Skeena
District*, Where Unrest Is Fanned
by Outside Agitators.
Ottawa, Oct. 22.���The report of
the department of Indian affairs for the
fiscal year ending March 31 last is out.
It is the most satisfactory yet issued by
the department, showing a mild winter
and the development of settlement in the
west have made things much better for
the aborigines. The only province which
showB any moral decline, says the report, is British Columbia, but this is due
to the fact that it is the last of the Can
adian west to feel the effects of white
"civilization" in the districts in which
Indians are chiefly located.
The entrance of railways with its accompanying influx of settlers into what
the tribes have from time immemorial
regarded as their hunting grounds and
Ashing stations, has created more especially on the northwest coast and in
the Naas and Skeena river districts, a
feeling of unrest, which has been fanned
into strength by outside agitators actuated by motives somewhat difficult of
comprehension.
The Indians claim that under the old
proclamation and in other ways their
rights to the country until surrendered
by them are recognized and assured,
which reduces the issue to one between
them and the provincial government.
The whole matter is being gone into by
the department of justice and the department is watching the interests of the Indians in the expectation of an early and
peaceful solution of the difficulty. The
Insians are commencing to appreciate
the advantages of attention to the white
man's modes of living and of agriculture,
and the result is shown in increased
prosperity and comfort. T\\i earnings
of the Indians in the year unier review
increased by over $83,000.
The report of **>* department of Indian aff-'-. oiiows that there are now in
...e Indian reserves of the country 110,-
597 Indians, as compared with 111,043
during the previous year, a net increase
of 446. There were 2,499 Indian births
during the year, while there were but
2,102 deaths, leaving a net increase of
397 in the aboriginal population. While
the reports from the various reserves still
continue to tell of the ravages of alcohol among the Indians, it is evident that
the evil effects are less than they were
and the prospects of the red man are
correspondingly bright.
ROAD TO WINDMERE
Scenic   Railway   From   Banff   May
Shortly Be Built
During a recent call upon Premier
McBride, Sir Thomas Shaughnessy,
president of the Canadian Pacific railway, brought forward a proposal relative to the construction and future
operation of a scenic railway from
Banff to Windmere, which should prove
of great popularity with tourists and
scenic beauty lovers generally, the
upper Columbia valley, to be traversed,
being a veritable wonderland. The
suggestion finds favor naturally with
the Provincial Premier and it is understood that construction of the line
will be initiated in the very near future.
Amendments to City Charter
Application will be made at the approaching session of* the legislature
for the amendments to the Prince
Rupert incorporation act enabling that
city to borrow money by the issue of
inscribed stock, to convert debentures
already issued into such stock, and to
consolidate debts provided for under
individual by-laws so that consecutive
debentures or inscribed stock may be
issued for such debts as consolidated.

NIGHTS
If you sleep with
your window open,
as you should do,
you must have
warm bed covering���warmth with-
out too much
weight. Cotton
sheets with newspapers between
would retain the
heat of your body
and thus keep you
warm, but they
would not permit
mit sufficient circulation of air.
The ideal bed covering, better than
expensive eiderdown quilts, is the
old-fashioned, all
wool blanket. We
have them in all
weights, all sizes
and all prices, and
we have, as well,
the eiderdown
quilts and the
cheaper comforters. In fact our
stock of bedding is
very complete and
this is the seasonable weather that
suggests their purchase. We shall
be glad to have you
look over our'stock
and compare.
BAD FALL FOR LITTLE BOY
Eddie Clapp Goes Over Plankway on
Second Avenue
HELPING NEW REPUBLIC
H. S. Wallace Co.
Phone 9 UMITED
Fulton St. and 3rd Are.
At about half past twelve today while
the youngsters were enjoying a game of
tag on the plankways in front of the
school on second avenue little Eddie
Clapp over ran the edge of the plankway
just at the concrete manhole on the
avenue at Seventh street.
The little chap fell a good ten feet
into the ditch below, and his neck
struck the jagged edge of the concrete,
The cut bled freely and his companions
were in great alarm. They called for
help, and very soon the passers-by had
got down to the boy and carried him up
to the street level. A doctor was sent
for, and Mrs. McCaffrey who had seen
the occurrence from her window wanted
the little fellow brought up to her house
till the doctor came. But to hasten
help Mr. McNeil, the building inspector, carried the boy up to Sixth
street and in Frank Keeley's drug store
he was attended to by Dr. Cade.
While Eddie's injury was pretty
painful and he cried'a good deal, it ii
not thought that the hurt is serious.
Little Eddie Clapp had some time ago
an accident with a machine which
cost him a finger, his companions say.

Great Britain Will Help Portuga I to
Retain Colonies
London, Oct. 16.���Great Britain is
determined to play the role of best
friend to the republic of Portugal just
as she did to the kingdom.
It is well understood that the statement of Senhor Jose Reivas, the new
Lisbon finance minister, regarding "The
supreme interest attaching to the preservation and development of our colonies," reflects a complete understanding
with the London government. Whatever money may be needed to carry out
this policy it will be an easy matter to
obtain in Lombard street.
Sir Edward Grey is maintaining the
tradition of the British foreign office
in supporting Portugal on the East
African coast, where lie her most valuable colonies, and the establishment
of the South African commonwealth
renders it tenfold more desirable for
Portugal's dominion in that part of
the world to be maintained.
British statesmen are almost equally
desirous that the status-quo as to the
colonies on the West African coast be
preserved, because 'n spite of the arrangement under which, in certain
eventualities, Germany was to take
the west coast possessions of Portugal and England the east, London has
never viewed such a contingency with
composure.
Manuel and the queen mother received a cordial, though not a demonstrative welcome on their arrival in
this country this week. Their presence
will emphasize the fact that England is
taking the place of France as the home* of
exiled royalty.
AMERICAN BOAT CHANGES
Cottage  City  to   Be   Succeeded   by
Excursion Steamer Senator
The Cottage City came in yesterday
afternoon, with few passengers for the
north. She put off fifty tons of perishables here and left at half past six. This
is the last trip of the Cottage City this
season, as she goes on the drydock for
her annual overhauling. She will be
replaced by the Senator, which leaves
Seattle on November first.
The City of Seattle left Seattle today
for the north. It is expected she will
make only one more round trip to the
north this season.
