MANSON A SURE WINNER
The Opposition Has Degenerated to
Rowdyism.
j �� Great Meeting  Last   Evening���Many Excellent  and
Pointed Speeches���The Toughs Squelched
by Morrissey and McKay.
William Manson's meeting in the
theatre was a huge success. The speeches
j were forceful and to the point, and a
great deal of good for the cause was
accomplished. As usual the paid howlers, ancl the blind pigs and tenderloin
element were present to look after
Stork's   interests. Those   persons
I attempted several times to break up
the meeting, but were unsuccessful and
their identification was exposed by more
than one sneaker.
The audience for the most part was
composed of the best people of the city,
and included a very large number of
ladies who are also greatly interested
| in the campaign.
A feature of Mr. Manson's programme
I was that it included addresses from the
candidates for school trustees. This
I was their first opportunity to appear
in public. On that account, many of the
1 candidates for the council had to be
I left off.
A. L. Morris occupied the chair and
j after a musical selection  he  formally
[opened the meeting, the programme of
which included the candidates for the
I mayoralty, council and school trusteeship.
At the outset, Stork's gang of boosters made their presence known by a
conglomeration of noises intended to
denote enthusiasm.
William Manson was the first speaker. He expressed his pleasure at being
able to address the audience. At this
time he only formally opened the meeting and left his address until later.
Mr. Carss was called next. He, as a
citizen of Prince Rupert, said he had a
keen interest in the government of
this city and he was proud to be a
supporter of William Manson. The
fact thut Mr. Manson had been so long
before the public, and in the limelight
so much, that his oppponents have
wy poor grounds for criticism of him.
Their only complaint seems to be that
Air. Manson is not agressive enough.
But Mr. Manson had accomplished
more than some of those very aggressive
men who had gone to Victoria on the
committee. In reference to the Tsimpsean Power Co's charter, Mr. Carss
Mid that Mr. Pattullo had urged that
��� government should have purchased
j we rights of the company for $125,000
and hand it over to the city. That was
"ol done, and to-day Prince Rupert
"as got full control of that charter,
"nd it h.
is not cost them one cent.  The
speaker then took up the question of
��� single tax. He pointed out that Mr.
^Men and others had purchased acres
"Hand in Prince Rupert and forced the
Price* up so high that it was imposs-
1 ��'e for the ordinary person to buy a
P'��t of ground for himself. Then why
nould not Mr. Naden and the rest of
��e speculators be taxed upon the values
01 those lands they have been specu-
'"mg In. Hand in hand with the single
��* goes a tax on floor space in all the
lj|g commercial buildings. Mr. Naden
never said anything about that. Mr.
arss said that an attempt was being
w��o  by  some  of  the  Stork   ticket
to introduce machine politics into this
city and this election.
T. D. Pattullo stepped to the platform and stated that Mr. Carss' statement in reference to himself was absolutely false. He advocated the purchase of the company at $45,000.
This started the noisy Stork faction
and they had a lot of fun by themselves.
F. Mobley, when called, only made a
couple of remarks and then said good
night.
School Trustees
The first speaker was Dr. Clayton.
He stated that he did not come forward
with kid gloves or with an affidavit
said to be worth $100. He was in the
field for school trustee, but as his platform was in the paper he did not need
to speak about that. He did, however,
take the opportunity to express his
opinion of some of the candidates and
their statements.
The Stork crowd made a most disgraceful demonstration at this time.
They made noises like cows, wolves,
cocks and common ruffians.
Dr. Clayton was game and he stated
that he would stay there until he was
through. His remarks were evidently
very distasteful to the noisy crowd. He
strongly criticised Mr. Stork's liquor
platform, which was only added after
he got the permission of the blind pig
operators.
Mr. Currie stated that he wanted
to get into the school board and keep
the boys and girls get an education.
C. V. Bennett was the next speaker
and he said that of all the questions
coming up in this campaign, the school
question was the most important. The
only chance of success the girls and
boys have is a good education us a
ground work.
If he was elected he would make it
his aim to give the boys and girls the
best education possible.
Dr. Quinlan, in opening, stated that
he did not like so many personalities
as some of the candidates had used
against the others. He did not think
that sort of thing had much effect
upon the people in making their choice.
Taking up the issues of the campaign,
he said he was a strong exponent of
single tax in all speculative towns.
There are lots of men with money who
are willing to buy a lot for $10,000
and hatch on it for ten years until it
was worth $50,000. But, who was it
that boosted the value of that lot?
It was those that made the improvements. Now, if men want to speculate
in city lots, let them pay for the privilege of holding those lots. The single
tax is the most fair system in the world.
The Doctor also touched upon the
liquor question, and stated that he
favoured the plebiscite because the
people wanted it. He paid a compliment
to the ladies and asked for their
liberal support at the polls. The Doctor
was enthusiastically applauded at the
conclusion of his address.
Dr. A. A. Mclntyre was the next
speaker, and he expressed his appreciation of the courtesy extended to him
I by William Manson. He also regretted
j the personalities that had been indulged
in. He spoke of the heavy work to be
done by the successful candidates.
V. W. Smith stated that he was
satisfied that if the candidates who
are elected would use their energies
in looking after the interests of the city
as they have on this stage, we need not
fear that the G. T. P., or the government will gobble us up. Mr. Smith referred to the needless excitement of
W. P. Lynch over the prospect of being
gobbled up. In conclusion, Mr. Smith
Mr. Smith asked for the support of the
electorate for Mr. Manson and himself.
D. W. Morrisey was warmly applauded when he was announced. One of the
principal planks sought to be placed
before you, he said, is clean government,
and one of the essentials of clean government is a good example. Those who
sling mud now will no doubt sling considerable after they are elected. Let
us be fair in this campaign. One of the
first principles of good citizenship
is order and giving a fair hearing to
all speakers. Those who are afraid
to listen to discussion are not good
citizens. He would stand on Mr. Man-
son's platform to the very last. In touching on the matter of liquor licenses, he
said that a plebiscite was the only
thing. It was only three months since
everyone voted and cried for a plebiscite, and now Mr. Manson offers that
to you. There is one thing I will fight
against and that is the sale of liquor in
those places which are sometimes known
as "sailor's boarding houses" He did
not mean respectable places where
sailors resorted. He put in a strong
appeal for William Manson, V. W. Smith
and himself. They were all labouring
men and never earned a dollar otherwise.
The paid interrupters made a big noise
here, but the speaker informed them
that he knew the interrupters were paid
for their services, and was therefore not
disturbed.
T. Y. McKay, in opening, addressed
the gathering as ladies and gentlemen,
and also gents of easy virtue. He asked
for a fair hearing.. The stand he took
in this campaign was not from a socialistic standpoint. He supported Mr.
Manson for personal reasons, and those
reasons were that Mr. Leek was a prominent worker for Mr. Stork, and at the
same time held a very low opinion of
the working men.. Then the speaker
stated that the shouting at this meeting
was from a very wrong element. In New
SEVEN REASONS
WHY   MANSON    SHOULD   BE
ELECTED.
BECAUSE he has a better knowledge of
Prince Rupert's civic affairs
than anyone else.
BECAUSE his honesty and integity is
above reproach.
BECAUSE he thoroughly understands
municipal law and systemitiz-
ing municipal work.
BECAUSE financiers to whom Prince Rupert must go for heavy loans
demand a big, clean man who
has had experience in handling public funds.
BECAUSE he knows where to start and
how to start organizing the
civic administration.
BECAUSE he lias the confidence of the
Provincial Government, with
whom the city will have considerable important business
transactions within the present year.
BECAUSE his policy is straightforward,
good business and allows no
room for juggling.
York, when the Democratic party want
to elect a candidate, they go down to
the tenderloin and gather in their
votes. Mr. Stork may not go there
himself, but his lieutenants certainly
are there, and those are the only people
who can elect him to the mayor's chair.
Mr. McKay made a very warm attack
upon Stork and said that if any of the
labour men intended to vote for him,
they would be wasting their votes.
Robert Todd said that he had
stepped into this campaign at the
request of the organization of which he
had been a member for the past 25 years.
He would rather have the good opinion
of that organization than 10,000 of
such scurrilous men as the one who
threw that affidavit at his head last
night. In opening, he explained why
he was brought to the city and why he
worked at the Optimist. He then denied
the affidavit read by Mr. Naden, and
gave that gentleman a hot calling down
for his actions, which were only those
of a political mud-raker. His record
only needed to be looked up at Victoria
when he was member for Greenwood
In closing the speaker made a plea for
Mr. Hilditch and advised the labour
men to vote against Naden.
G. W. Morrow made a very effective
address. He referred to Mr. Lynch's
remarks of the night before, which he
said Mr. Lynch did not believe himself.
He also referred to the B. C. Telephone
Co., and the very active part the Optimist took in the fight against that
organization. He had no ill feelings
against Mr. Stork, or any other candidate. After the elction he would be as
good friends with them as ever before.
Fred. Stork said he was glad to hear
one of the other speakers refer to the
gathering as a large and intelligent
one. He then made an attack upon the
Optimist, and said he thought it would
be good to have big men in the newspaper business as well as in the mayor's
chair. He said there were 75 blind
pigs in the city. He was not responsible
for their existence. Mr. Manson had
been running the town for two years,
and could not clean them out. He would
undertake to clean them out in 24 hours.
The speaker then touched upon the
liquor question and claimed that it was
impossible to enforce a local option
law in this city.
Mr. William Manson was the last
speaker and he was given a rousing
reception. He said he thoroughly appreciated the interest the poeple were
taking in the campaign. He took another
yellow journal that Mr. Stork had had
printed and dealt with it.. In touching
upon the Tsimpsean Water company,
he said that Company had no water
and could not get it, except from the
Government. He said he had never
made any promise of a job, position,
contract or anything else to any person
or corporation. Mr. Stork charged him
with doing that. Such mud-slinging
looks like the work of an enemy defeated. He, William Manson, appealed
to the intelligence of the people and
not to the rabble. He touched on the
liquor question and defended his platform in that connection. He also
stood on his entire platform, and
especially the land tax plank.
In conclusion, he said he appeared
in this campaign at the wish of the
people, and he now asked those people
for their votes. He felt sure that, from
the representations made to him, and
from the result of his canvas, that he
would be elected. He did not worry
about the noise of the paid howlers. He
had made his canvas and he felt sure
of the result���cheers.. He stood by
his record in this country. He had always tried to do the square thing, and
if elected he  would  continue    to   do
LOOK OUT FOR COMET
Will Pass Across   the Sun Between
Seven and Half-Past Eight
This  Evening
Berkeley, Cal. May 18,��� Prof. A.
E. Guschner says, "the comet will be
in transit across face of sun to-night. The
time of ingress will be 7. 39. 10 p.m.
Middle of transit 8. 08. 46 p.m., and
time of egress 8. 37. 46 p. m. These
figures are Pacific standard time. The
transit, theoretically, may be observable from points in the Pacific ocean,
but it is doubtful if the astronomers
of the orient will be able to discern it.
The earth will enter the tail of the comet
tonight at 5 p. m., and will emerge at
11 p.m., passing through at the rate of
fifty miles a second.. Therefore, the
earth will take about five hours longer
in passing through the tail of the comet
than the comet will take in passing
across the face of the sun.
Revolution in China
Peking, May 18,���Reports from Nanking, the capital of the province of
Kiangsu, tell of serious evidences of
unrest among the Chinese. The natives
are cutting their queues, an action which
constitutes an anti-dynastic demonstration. The anti-foreign feeling is
said to be increasing.
BLIND PIGS RAIDED
Four blind pig cases were called at a
session of the police court yesterday
afternoon. Two of the victims answered to the charge, while the other two
have jumped the town. Frank Flynn, f
the Fountain, answered to his name call
and was remanded until this afternoon. Fred Snyder, bartender at the
Hub Cigar store was remanded until
Monday morning at 10 o'clock. W.
Milliken of the Club on Rupert road,
and St. Denis of the Rupert cigar store,
are the two who skidooed and they not
likely bother Prince Rupert much more.
Trembley of the Owl, on Second ave.,
appeared this morning at 10 o'clock
charged with the same offence. He
pleaded guilty and paid $250. Chief
Wynn has been doing some good work,
and is rounding up another batch of
lawbreakers.

THE FOX AND THE STORK.
Don't forget the old fable about the
fox and the stork.
A stork invited a fox to dinner. The
fox after making great preparations,
and whetting his appetite, appeared
on the appointed day with the expectations of a good square meal.
He. was greatly moritified, however,
when the meal was brought in to discover that it consisted of soup served
in a long, deep jar with a very small and
narrow neck. This proved an excellent
thing for the stork, who, with his
long bill���and some Storks have very
long bills���could easily reach the bottom of the jar and therefore made a
very hearty meal while the poor fox
was forced to look on and be content
with licking up such of the soup as
the stork in his gluttony, accidently
spilled over the side of the jar. The
fox afterwards got even with the stork,
but that is nor. a part of our story.
It is not very probable that if our own
Stork���"Alfy," as the Empire loves to
call him���gets the fox, Prince Rupert,
to come to his meal that he and his
little coterie of Grit friends will get
all the soup, while this city, in the shape
of the fox, will come off lucky to get
such sloppings over as may result
from the Stork's voracious appetite.

To-morrow you will be called to the polls to exercise the franchise you possess
as a citizen of this country and this new city. What are you going to do with it?
Who will you elect to preside over the destinies of this city, of which we are proud���
a city where we expect to live and prosper and make an object of universal admiration. There has been much unseemly conduct and unfair criticism in the contest
of the past week, and the debris of practical politics still lies loose around the public places. It should not influence the honest voter. The issues at stake are: the
man; his platform; his following. Size up the situation without malice or prejudice..
o o o
Wm. Manson is a man of unimpeachable character. Even in the bitterest
moments of the campaign, no one could utter an insinuation against his character,
which is a record which could be produced by few men who have been in public
life as long as William Manson. He has ever been a champion of people's rights.
As a candidate for mayor he possesses the qualifications for the position and has
the experience and knowledge of civic affairs, and the duties of the office, such as
no other man can boast. Not only has he a grip on ihe necessities and opportunities far the common good, but he has the time to devote to the heavy labours of
the office; he has the confidence of the provincial government, with whom the city
will lave much business; he will assure the faith of the financiers who will lend
this city money.
Mr. Stork is a merchant whose municipal experience has been confined to ihe
pioneer days of Fernie. What his public record is does not particularly matter.
Consider his public labours here. Last year he was a member of the council of the
Board of Trade, which was the recognized municipal organization. Thij year he
was dropped from the council because of his failure to attend the meetings. As
a matter of fact, since the 13th of last September, lie has attended but three meetings out of fifteen. Why'.' Either his business demanded his attention or he wished
to shirk the discussions on the issues brought up. And either cause is sufficient
to show the error of electing him to an office which will require practically all of
his lime His business or the city would suffer. His qualifications as a merchant
do not necessarily fit him to organize and operate civic machinery.
The platforms of the two candidates appear similar in ideas, but decidedly
different in directness and manner of application. William Manson's is definite
on every point. You know where he stands, what he will do and when he'will go
about it. Mr. Stork's platform is a shifty pile of lumber that can be re-arranged
to suit time, circumstances and inclination. Maybe you would get what you think,
and maybe you would get something very different.
The following of the I wo candidates is prima facia evidence of what the camps
would be after election. Business men are divided in their support���they usually
are. But the hoodlum element the gang that expects something in return���are
lined up in a solid body for Stork's candidature. The unmentionable creatures
are also with him. The King of Comox Avenue is his chief whip. They are driving
the decent people io shelter. Arc these aliens, these pimps and these keepers of
dumps shouting in the interests of Prince Rupert, or because they see an opportunity to have a machine government, with a wide open town?
William Manson has a following no man need be ashamed of. Some of his
stiongest supporters differ from him on certain questions, but they have confidence in him as a man who will give all the people and every faction a square deal.
The Optimist believes the silent vote���that great and growing force for good-
is with Manson unanimously.

THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST
, Genesis of Prince Rupert
Being the Second EpUtle of Bill to
the Electors.
CHAPTER I.
1. Now utter many days of turmoil
iml unrest, and after many publicmeet-
gs peace descended upon the city. And
the people knew whom they might cast
down and whom they might uphold of
those who aspired to high places.
And ihe day was come when the
���oterslist would close.     And   Newton,
father of Slorkticket sent messages
|to tin- house of Cuthbert, the assessor.
Ami  they  bore  false  tokens  of
[peace.
4.   And these men monopolized the
[good book and made note of the voters,
and of whore they lived and they returned
lunto Newton.
5.  And the book was not yet closed
when they departed.
f. And Newton seized upon this list,
land hawed at it. and growled over it,
'and rat like, spat forth venom concerning
and tilled his paper with it, for he had
!no other news wherewith to cover the
i sheets,
7. And it was crude.
S, And the people made note of it, for
Cuthbert the assessor was a just man,
nor could he reply unto these snarls.
And moreover, Newton, the Storkmaker
knew this thing, else he wottld nave held
bis peace.
CHAPTER II.
1.   And upon the sixteenth  day of
the fifth month, the wouldbes journeyed
unto the house of Cuthbert the assessor.
And   they   nominated   each    other
for office.
And Quinlan, the extractor, was
iiiot of them, for when he would have
[joined the holy band   the   hour was
=od.
i   And they were off  to the races.
a.  Antl the wouldbes  posed in the
JUblicplaces, and  brought  forth   much
(anguage,   Awl they perfected the art
f the gladhand.
6. And the wouldbes walked the
ilankstreets and smote the noble elector
l��n the back, and slipped him cigars.
. '��� And Manson the elder, and his
followers sawed much wood, and the
panda played out, and the multitude
fame and was gathreed into the fold.
|And the smoke and the sawdust filled
:he committeeroom for there was much
msiness forward..
8. And Ally the major came forth
pm the bullrushes. And strutted to
and fro on the highways like a bird of
[good omen.
Is; And from beneath his wing peeped forth a ticket for he would carry the
Y1!' m his beak, and the multitude
would eat-and drink- from the goodly
"ores of his retainers.
10' And from the nature of his
J���"* the people looked to him
10 "V Wgh. Hut lo! one wing of his party
MS Badly bent and broken, and Newton
, W1f man was as an anchor and a drag
pon. hjm' ��nd as he struggled to rise
��� "led unto Newton, saying-'Cease-
��ve done, goldarnye!'
i*1: 1?ul lhe w>se man heard him not,
F�� needed him, but walked 6n in the
�� he had chosen.    And when the
* went out, he knew not whither
Might     ^^^^
l�� turn, and he was alone and sore
afraid.
And al! the little devils mocked him,
dnd the moss grew upon his presses.
CHAPTER III.
And Alfy the major clad himself
��� ;i "'at of many colours, and mounted
011 a platform and posed also in the
Publicplaces.
And from whatever angle the people
0��ked on his platform, they could drive
���rough it a span of oxen. For it was of
wondrous fine texture and loosely put
together.,
But cetarln among the wooldbes could
hee "'it only pure gold, And
I many
Ivili i       " '���B""*' """ many mar-
��� u'��l at their blindness and forgot the
|uponltm0ntha ot toil they had sPent
���dint I/'Uull��' one of the ch��<��en, dug
iQe��P in his overalls.
nd he discovered the price and he
threw open the theatre with great
abandon to the multitude, wherein
they might discuss these planks.
CHAPTER IV.
And Manson, the elder, spoke first
and he smote the table and said, 'I shall
drive out the blind pigs."
And Alfy the major rose up and
smote the table likewise and cried out
"I shall drive out the blind pigs."
And Manson, the elder, smote the
table again and said, "We shall have an
eight-hourday.
And Alfy the major smote the table
also and said "We shall have an eight-
hourday."
And they stopped and glared, the one
at the other, and paused in their smiting. For it seemed there was much sameness. And as the one could speak no
faster than the other, they retired and
sparred for wind.
And when they had rested for a time,
Manson the elder rose up again hurriedly and cried out, "We shall have a
singletax.."
And when Alfy the major heard of
this thing, and had sought tor it in the
dictionaries, and found what it was,
he declared for it also and spiked it to
bis platform..
And the multitude, having learned
much, called upon them to cease
their con-talk.
And Morrisey, he who had been many
j years in the land, spouted. And he was
i there inmar.yways. And they applaud-
i ed him; and he departed bearing in
; his hands many tablets concerning
municipal questions, to which he had
given much thought.
And he was pleased, and a smile
played about his ears.
And then arose Naden, and he dreamed
there were some who had sought to
defame him. But the people knew him
and made known their approval of him,
and he was comforted.
And there were few7 but would pass
him by when the time had arrived.
And there was one seated who twiddled
his thumbs. And when it was his move,
he arose and stood in an attitude of
supplication.
For, all the arguments he had planned
! to bring forward all the others had
used. And all his telling phrases and
smooth softsoap had been inflicted
by others, and he would not detain
them further. And they reciprocated
his sentiments.
And her name was Lynch.
And the shades of Douglas the cutup
and of Stephens, passed before the meeting, and Tomdunn the merchant uttered a great flow of language and spoke
many words,
And   Manson  the younger performe
his stunt.
And there were many present from
the country to the south. And they had
put their names on the voters list.
But they would get it in the neck,
yea, even in the collarbutton, if they
should seek to exercise  the franchise.
CHAPTER  V.
And no man knew how this thing
might end. And they feared the threatened invasion of the little storks, and
steered clear of the buttons.
And the wouldbes    sought to draw
attention each from himself and to the
otherfellow.
And they cried out| the one against the
other.
And had one man sent a sock, or
another a cuff or a shirt to the yellow
races, one would appear and write to
the  papers concerning  the  matter.
And had one employed a walloper,
he must needs explain it.
And had one lit his morning fire with
a paper, and had that paper not upon it
the unionlable, they wished to be shown.
And had one turned handsprings,
or somersaults in the public places
he must come forth and produce language
concerning it.
And had one made some few talents
by bartering with the people, he was a
monopolist and bloated with ill gotten
gains.
And those who wished the post office
here, blamed those who wished it there.
And there was tumult on the street
corners and at the publicmeetings,
and recrimination and   backbiting and
whoops and hurrahs and brassbands.
And the affairs of the city suffered and
the markets were deserted.

What we propose is not the disturbing of any man in his holding or title,
but by abolishing all taxes on industry
or its products, to leave to the producer
the full fruits of his exertion and by the
taxation of land values, exclusive of
improvements, to devote to the common
use and. benefit those values, which,
arising not from the exertion of the
individual, but from the growth of
society, belong justly to the community
as a whole. This increased taxation of
land, not according to its area, but
according to its value, must, while
relieving the working farmer and small
homestead owner of the undue burdens
now imposed upon them, make it
unprofitable to hold land for speculation,
and thus throw open abundant opportunities for the employment of labor
and the building up of homes.
���Platform, Syracuse, N.Y.
Our purpose, our aim, is, by abolishing monopolies, by giving to each his
equal right and his equal opportunity
to bring about a state of things in which
no human being shall suffer want,
unless it be by his own fault; in
which no child shall go hungry;
in which there shall be no woman,
be she maid, wife, or widow, who will
be driven to unsex herself by hard and
unseenly work; to bring about a state
of things in which there shall be work
for all, leisure for all, opportunity for
for all; in which not merely the necessities of life, but even the luxuries and
the refinements of a high civilization
shall be the portion of all.
We have a faith���that our Father in
heaven did not decree poverty, but
that it exists because of the violation
of His law. We have a belief���that
poverty can be abolished by conforming
human laws and institutions to the
great principles of equal justice. And
having this faith, and having this belief
we have a destiny. That destiny is to
abolish poverty in the United States
of America, and in doing so, to fire a
beacon that will light the whole world.
���Henry George, Speech Sept. 4, 1887.
these qualities, at his side. Looked at
this means that Mr. Borden, just
because he is not equipped for the peculiar work of party leader, not endowed
with the rare qualities which enabled
a Macdonald and a Laurier to get the
best out of their followers, ought to to
have as his lieutenant the one man who
appears to possess such qualities,
and that, therefore, Mr. McBride
ought to come to Ottawa, of course,
in the inferior position. It is very
cleverly imagined. Mr. Borden could not
object with any kind of face. And it,
in the course of a little time, the man
who has the leadership qualities chose
to grasp the leadership, well, it would be
a little rough on Mr. Borden, but the
party necessities would have to be
respected. If Mr. Borden did not win
the next election, the substitution
would be easy. If he did it might'not be
necessary. And it is probably realized
that he is not likely to.
Still, there is in all this the evidence
that while Mr. Borden is not great
success at leading the party, nevertheless the party is making some headway
at leading itself and shoving him on
ahead. It is Mr. McBride s move.���

LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
The Fraternal Order of Eagles will
hold a meeting in the hall over Christ-
ianson & Brandt's store this (Wednesday) evening at 7.30 o'clock for final
organization.
NOW  FOR  McBRIDE.
A careful and impartial reading of the
various newspapers which oppose the
Government leads The Herald to
believe that the Kingston Standard is
the best informed and the best advised
of the lot. Why it should be so is not
our business, but the fact is that the
Standard has been right about its
party's affairs. When all the others,
Mr. Borden included, have been wrong,
The Standard has been  right. Its
policy on the naval question, enunciated after Mr. Borden s Halifax
speech, was afterwards adopted by the
pafty, including Mr. Borden. It has
joined in the cry for reorganization at
Ottawa, but has not lost its head. It
has contented for sending the infirm
and aged to the rear, here running
counter to the Mail. It has denounced
as folly the penalizing of Mr. Monk and
the elimination of the Quebec wing, here
running counter to the News. It has
made friendly advances to W. F.
here going straight against the regular
policy of certain wooden heads. It
has preached the necessity of keeping
Mr. Borden, but has told him with a
plainness that would be brutal, if it
were not obviously well ��� intentioned,
what are tlie weaknesses that unfit him
for successful leadership.
Now the Kingston Standard, just as
soon as the crisis was over which resulted
in the elimination of Messrs. Foster,
Haggart, Sproule, Taylor and Hughes,
and the advancement of Mr. Doherty
and the Young Tories, comes forward
with a suggestion which, for our part,
we expect to see worked out into
actuality before long. It is that Mr.
Borden, lacking the qualities he does,
ought to have   Mr. McBride, who has

��� Which? ���
THE germ of both Life and
Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for tlie stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter-
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

' 11 THE    PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
COMPARE THE MEN.
Editor, Optimist,
Sir,��� In the election that is near
at hand is it not well to consider the
past records of the candidates as they
reach us by public rumor.
When Stork was mayor of Fernie, was
it not a resort for pimps, boosters aid
tinhorns. Was it not a wide open town
with   all   its  worst   features?
What was the record of Mr. Manson
when he was mayor of Nanaimo? Can
anyone lay at his door, a charge of
the above nature?
When he was mayor of Fernie, was
not Fred. Stork reputed to be the tool
of the Crow's Nest Coal Co.,���a company
which controls the franchises of the city
of Fernie? Was it not the general
impression that before he made any
important move he had to consult the
officials of that company?
Was ever such a charge laid against
William Manson when he was mayor
of Nanaimo? Now, Sir, I am not making
any statement for or against these men,
but all we have got to go on in this new
town is the past reputation of citizens
which come to us from time to time.
What are the reputations of these two
men?
I would like to have every man measure up Fred. Stork against William Man-
son. Take the moral, mental and intellectual stature of each man and see
what   they think of the comparison.
"A man is known by the company he
keeps."
"By their works ye shall know
them."
Of course when you come to a man like
George Naden, who is probably the
prime mover in the Stork movement,
we have a rather different aspect of the
case. We know that George, notwithstanding all his protestations of political virtue and sagacity, sat in the house
while the bill for the Tsimpsean Light
& Power company was being passed,
and never raised a whimper. It doesn't
matter what excuses he gives now. What
he was elected to the legislature of
B. C. for was to see that such bills
were not passed. And he failed in his
duty.
If you look back over recent history
in Prince Rupert, you will recollect that
Naden has never publicly denounced
the government over this chartered
matter, though he may have made the
balls for the other fellow to throw.  ,
George Naden is now supporting Stork
and his wide open town policy. He has
openly advocated licenses although he
is said to profess to be a great temperance man.
It is a good thing to see these fellows
throw off the mask, although it is is
gain  the  support  and  applause  of  a 1
bunchWofJblindJpiggers  and moral
outcasts.
ONE WHO KNOWS THE BUNCH.
ELECTION NEWS
Mr. Stork says weYtnay expect a
sight draft from Victoria any day for
$40,000 or $50,000, which will eat up
half the years taxes. As a mayoralty
candidate he ought to know that the
charter provides for the city's indebtedness to be paid by debentures, which
means that only the interest and sinking fund will be due this year.
Manson explained to Stork last evening how he could guarantee that the
license inspectors would carry out the
wishes of the people. Stork's ignorance
of the license law seems to be very
profound.
To-day William Manson is conceeded
to be a winner. The electors have sized
up the situation pretty thoroughly
and the result is no longer in doubt.
His opponents also recognize it, and are
fighting with the tactics of men who
know they are beaten.
Dr. Quinlan's speech last evening
was generally accepted as one of the
ablest and brightest heard during the
campaign, clearly showing the education
and ability of the old western warhorse.
The following gentlemen signed Mr.
Stork's nomination papers. They are,
unfortunately for Mr. Stork, not voters
in this country :
H. A. Lerenhagen
J. P. Bartholemey
D. Cohen
Aota Franggco

W. S. Matson
J. Green

D. W. Morrisey made a speech last
evening that reflects credit on himself
and all Canadians. He held at bay, as
only a true Britisher knows how, the
alien element that attempted to inter
fere with him, and he carried the meeting by storm.    Mr. Morrisey will be
elected and no aldermanic candidate
is more highly qualified to fill the
position.
G. W. was taken around to see the
cartoon in Keeley's window. "That's
good, he commented, "I would rathei
ride in on that cannon than on a blind
Pig."
