STREET FIGHTING IN PARIS
Underneath Industrial Strike is Movement for Overthrow of Government.���Street Fighting and General Disorder Throughout City.���Armed Strikers Clash  With Soldiers.

Two   Indians   Sent   for   a   Year   to
Westminister
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Oct. 13.-The railroad strike
in France has developed into a revolutionary struggle for the purpose of
overthrowing the government. The
struggle is really worse than the French
revolution and much bloodshed may be
expected. The rioting now is something
terrible and the authorities are calling
out all the army reserves to cope with
it. It is feared, also, that the army is
disaffected.
Soldiers and Strikers Clash
Paris, Oct. 13.���There was a clash
between the soldiers and the strikers
in front of the offices of La Humanite, a
Socialist newspaper, this morning and
a bitter fight ensued. The 'offices of
the newspaper were raided on an order
lrom the government. The soldiers
found all the entrances barricaded and
threatened to fire through the windows
il the refugees within the office were not
given up. M. Jaures, one of the editors
and a member  of  the  assembly   ap-
RICHER PLACED
ON HIS TRIAL
JURY RETURNS VERDICT OF MAN
SLAUGHTER
Accused Told His Story in Straightforward Manner and Impressed
Jury���Four Witnesses from Prince
Rupert Gave Evidence.
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Oct. 13.���After less than a
two hours' hearing yesterday afternoon
the Richer case was given to the jury,
who returned a verdict of manslaughter.
A* H. McNeill appeared for the
prosecution and the case for the crown
rated solely on the statements made
by the accused. Four witnesses were
ailed by C. N. Haney, counsel for the
defence. These witnesses were Dr.
Tremayne, Police Sergeant Regan and
|*o whose testimony had no direct
waring on the case.
Richer told his story in a straightforward manner which impressed the
jury* He said he had been drinking
��r three days. He went to bed with
"eaudoin and woke up with the rifle
�� lm hand and hearing Beaudoin say,
'Mi have shot me."
Justice Murphy summed up rather

tlmate that the weapon used
evidence of premeditation.
peared at one of the windows and shouted
a defiance to the police. As he was
stepping back a bullet splintered the
window frame just above his head.
This was the signal for a general
fussilade from both sides in which eight
were seriously wounded and thirty others
badly bruised. Eventually the soldiers
captured the building and the police
entered. They arrested six Socialists
leaders and a number of men. Those
among the latter who were not strikers
were released.
Thousands of strikers are patrolling
the streets and the situation becomes
more threatening all the time.
The Apaches are busy under the cloak
of the strike disorders. The police
being called out on strike duty leaves
these robbers and murderers a free
hand. All personal property is therefore unsafe and the Department de la
Seine is very much hampered by the
thousands of tourists and foreigners
calling for protection. The Chamber of
Deputies intends to rush through a
whipping post order this evening.
Uneasiness in England
London, Oct. 13.���The siuccess of the
j French strikers is causing great unrest
| in all transportation circles in England.
! The compromise effected a short time
i ago  is  far  from  satisfactory  and   the
unions   are   watching   the  struggle   in
France very closely.
Peter Brown and Austin Matthews,
the two Indians charged with theft of
provisions, etc., from P. Burn's store at
Hazelton came before Judge Young in
the County Court this morning. They
pleaded guilty but as the goods had been
returned Judge Young treated the case
leniently. The prisoners were sentenced
to one year each at Westminster. They
will go down by the Prince Rupert
tonight.

Indictment ia Lengthy and Will Take
Court Clerk Probably Twenty Minutes to Read���Make Short Work
Selecting Jury.
. (Special to the Optimist)
"London, Oct. 13.���The Crippen-triafj-
has been fixed for next Tuesday, the
trial judge refusing to grant more than
one day in answer to the request of the
defence. When the prisoner is placed in
the dock on Tuesday morning the
clerk of the court will read the indictment. Couched in legal and medical
phraseology it will probably take a roll
of paper several feet long to enumerate
the charges against the accused man.      	
For possible twenty minutes the clerk j as a recognition of her brave deed.
will continue the reading.  At the end he' " "
will ask the prisoner whether he pleads
"guilty.or not guilty."   After the plea
is entered the work of selecting the jury
begins.   Under British procedure this is
a far less troublesome thing than in
America.   The jurors are sworn and the
examinations are of the briefest possible
sort.   Though each side has the right of
challenge, it is not restored to often and
then only in cases where it is known
that a juryman is markedly antagonistic
to either side.
It is rumored that a meat company is
likely to be organized and. capitalized by
local people to carry on business in Prince
Rupert, Stewart and other towns.
It is understood that the Swift Company, of Chicago, are anxious to get
a share of the meat business in Northern
British Columbia having a large plant
and abattoirs now in Vancouver.
The Optimist is informed that if
the cntemplated plans mature, one
of the finest retail meat markets in
British Columbia will be established in
Prince Rupert.
"LESS   NOISE,"   SAYS  JUDGE
Jeanette D. Rudge, who Receives Humane Society Medal To-night
Mrs. Rudge is the wife of Mr. Fred. Rudge of Port Essington. Last
spring Mrs. Rudge jumped into the surging waters of the Skeena and rescued
her young nephew, Jack Berriman, from drowning. Tonight she will be presented with the bronze medal of the Royal Humane Society of London, England,
as a recognition of her brave deed. The presentation will be made by William
Manson, M. P. P., in the observation room of the Prince Rupert at 7.30 o'clock.

In County Court When A.  Manson
and   L.   Patmore   Get   to   Grip
Alex Manson and L. Patmore got so
emphatic over their legal contentions
in the County Court this morning that
Judge Young remarked: "Really I
think that this case can be conducted
with less noise." The case was that of
Cunningham & Son, Ltd., vs. R. Conr
nors the man who was supposed to be
at Westminster while he was quietly
pottering around doing chores serving
his six months' sentence here in Prince
Rupert. The matters in dispute are
whether certain goods were returned by
Connors, the price paid for logs he cut,
and the return of the logging outfit. The
argument between Mr. Manson and Mr.
Patmore was over a legal technicality.
Mr. Manson thought there was an in-
admissable element of surprise in certain
questions of Mr. Patmore's to the
witness Harris. It ended in Mr. Patmore's raying that he would fling all
the cards on the table for Mr. Manson
to see for himself. "We've got nothing
to hide," he said.
The case is adjourned meantime.
Obstructed Thoroughfare
Wm. Brown appeared before the
Magistrate yesterday afternoon charged
with having obstructed the thoroughfare on Center street by leaving a load
of lumber there. He was fined $10 and
costs.
ALFONSO READY TO FLEE
British Fleet Held in Readiness to Succor Royal Family of Spain.
���Revolutionary Party Active Throughout Country.
���Strike In France Reflected In Spain.
(Special to the Optimist)
Madrid, Oct. 13.���The industrial strike
in France is reflected in Spain and threatens to precipitate the fall of Alfonso.
Preparations are now under way for
the removal of the royal family to San
Sebastian, near the French frontier.
It is stated here that the British fleet
is at Gibraltar, with steam up and all
ready to protect the royal family.
Alarming reports of revolutionist activity/are coming in from the various
provinces.
The Ferrar Anniversary
Madrid, Oct. 13.���The Ferrar anniversary is passing without any news of
concerted action throughout the kingdom
though there is rioting and disorder in
all the large cities, this, the capital,
being no exception. At Barcelona the
revolutionists seemed to be the most
turbulent. There was a plot there to
dynamite the great prison in which
Ferrar was confined and executed. This
came to the ears of the authorities and
the prison was surrounded with military
and machine guns. An attack by the
revolutionists is momentarily expected.
Though not officially proclaimed martial law is universal today throughout
the country. There have already been
several battles but owing to the strict
censorship and the fact that many wires
have been cut no definite information
as to the situation can be obtained.
It is understood that the army remains
loyal to King Alfonso, but this remains
to be seen. All leaves of absences have
been suspended. THE    PRINOE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

RAILWAY MAGNATE HERE
First-Vice President of Grand Trunk
on Pleasure Trip
E. H. Fitzhugh, first vice-presidnet
of the Grand Trunk and director of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, was a passenger
on the Prinw Rupert last night. He
said his business keeps him very much
in the east and he had seen but little
of the west. He had pleasure in taking
advantage of the opportunity of seeing
Prinee Rupert in its early days, as it
would be a pleasure to recall when it
became a gerat city and seaport. He
accepted an invitation from General
Superintendent Mehan to take a ride
on the railway this morning, and was
accompanied by Captain and Mrs.
Nicholson.
Mr. Fitzhugh is among the famous
railway men of the age. He was with
Charles M. Hays on the Missouri
Pacific and left him to join the Grand
Trunk. He says this is a pleasure trip
rather than one of business and that
he has thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent weather and scenery on the way
to this port. He agrees with Mr. Hays
that when the railway is completed this
will become one of the most popular
tourist routes of the world.
J. E. Dalrymple, assistant freight
manager of the Grand Trunk Pacific,
accompanies Mr. Fitzhugh.
Annex Will Be Altered
A letter from E. J. Chamberlin, vice-
president of the G. T. P. Ry. Co., was
read by the city clerk at last night's
city council meeting. The letter dealt
with the alteration of the G. T. P. Inn
Annex so as to remove the portion of
it obstructing the line of work on Second
avenue. Mr. Chamberlin has instructed General Superintendent Mehan
to have the necessary alterations made.
Tsimpsean Co.'s Gas Mains
A letter from L. W. Patmore on
behalf of the Tsimpsean Light and
Power company asking about the proposed gas mains, and whether the city
approved the plans submitted showing
their positions was read at last night's
city council meeting by the city clerk.
The letter asked that if the positions
suggested were not approved, the council
might indicate what positions they
desired for these mains. It was referred
to the Streets, Works and Property
committee.

LOCATION OF
GOLD THIEVES
CITY   OF   SEATTLE  GOLD   ROBBERY EXPLAINED
Messboy Confesaes His Part in Robbery, but Police Believe Others Are
Implicated���Mail Currency Ia Still
Miseing.
Seattle, Oct. 7.���That themen who
rifled the registered mails on the steamer
City of Seattle Sunday night got away
with a large amount of plunder besides
the gold bullion, is the belief of the post-
office inspectors at work on the case
as the result of further examination of
the mutilated letters yesterday. Several letters noted inclosures of money,
but no money was found.
Thomas Buckley, who has confessed
his part in the robbery, told Deputy
United States Marshall George B. Daven-
peck that he had a roll of bills wrapped
in pieces of newspaper, and at least
three inches thick on a rafter on th*
'tween decks, naming the place. When
the search was made Monday night the
money was not found, nor was another
roll, wrapped in newspapers, which
Buckley said he had concealed in his
bedding. Buckley expressed much surprise that the two bundles were not
recovered.
The officers believe, since Buckley's
confession before United States Commissioner, W. D. Totten, that the prisoner is telling the truth. Buckley was
carefully searched immediately after
the discovery of the robbery and again
at the county jail but a diamond ring,
a necklace and several other pieces of
valuable jewelry, which are still missing, were not found on him.
The postoffice inspectors were engaged yesterday in sorting out the
American mail and making a list of letters in which money inclosures were
mentioned. All amounts under $50 will
be made good by the department on
satisfactory showing by the senders at
the point where the letters were mailed.
One of the letters found in the mail
yesterday noted the inciosure of two
water receipts and $28 in cash. The
receipts dropped out of the mutilated
missive but there was no money. Another was an inciosure from Dawson to
the States to pay for the board of a
young girl in boarding school. The
writer said $7 in cash was inclosed.
The inspectors failed to find it.
It was established yesterday that the
roll of bills found in Buckley's sock at
the time he was searched had not been
disturbed, but was in the form in which
it was stolen. It consisted of mutilated
bills en route to New York for redemption, but was in such state of preservation that every dollar represented its
face value. It was placed in the mails
and forwarded to destination.

OUR ONE GREAT CHARITY
There are few calls for alms-giving in Prince Rupert. The lack of poverty
is one of the features which make these last west cities unique in co nparison with
the older cities of the world. So few are the demands for cash donations to charity
that we are apt to forget that all the world is not flush with money, and that we
have a duty as our brother's keeper. While the old world is in a turmoil of civil
wars and revolutions, struggles between capital and labor, cries from starving
hordes, wails of crop failures and the horror of atrocious crimes, this new world
is basking in the sunshine of peace and plenty. Here where theie is work for those
who want it, high wages and a free flow of money, the troubles of the rest of the
world seem far away and unreal. We have no poverty and its attendant crimes
to give us daily illustrations of the duty we owe to our fellowmen.
Yet our city is not altogether without opportunity of extending charity in
a practical and monetary manner. We have a city hospital which is about to
be opened and thrown upon the city as an institution requiring the voluntary
support of the citizens. Healing the wounded, curing disease, and administering
to the sick is the first principle of all religious creeds and of all philosophy of life.
It should be, and is, the greatest object of charity, and practically it is the only
charity demanding alms which offers itself to Prince Rupert. There should be
no difficulty in its making a successful appeal.
Already very liberal subscriptions have been made to the building fund but
more will be demanded and every year will see yet another call. The ladies
of the city are now taking up the work of equipping the building and by their
ingenious methods, subtle devices and sincerity in their noble purpose they are
assured of success.
This same work of supporting a local hospital has been delegated to the ladies
all over America and it has become the recognized function of the fair sex. That
Prince Rupert ladies will make good is without doubt but when the appeal comes
to you in the form of a smile and a ticket or a subscription list, do not pass it up.

TENDERS FOR
THIRD AVENUE
WILL BE CALLED FOR AT ONCE
Question of Stopping Grading of
Seceond Avenue Beyond Junction
Again Discussed. Aid. Hilditch the
"High Priest" and Aid. Lynch the
"Apostle."
Aid. Lynch moved at last night's city
council that tenders be called for the
work on Third avenue as planned by the
city engineer.   Aid. Mclntyre seconded.
Aid. Hilditch asked why nothing had
been done regarding the transfer of the
contract in progress on the section of
Second avenue beyond the junction.
Though they had the money promised
from the Bank of Montreal it would be
some time before they could get the
actual funds. It would be sometime
before they could collect the assessment
against the loan. He had been studying
up the city assessment and found that
taking one thing with another there was
very little equity in the city's method of
assessment on the small property owner.
He had calculated that an owner of a
single lot in Biggar place would have an
assessment equal to six per cent on his
investment. The city had a legal but
not a moral right to put on this assessment unless the people had a say in the
matter. It was an injustice to the
people of the outlying districts. Better
to tax property in the business section of
the city than in the districts where only
dwelling houses would be erected for a
considerable time. He believed that *if
the property owners of these districts
were present now they would object to
the tax on them, and again suggested
that the only fair way to do this grading
was to grade the central sections of
First, Second and Third avenues with
their cross streets and let the business
property owners bear the biggest share
of the tax for this. It was not fair to ask
from esidental property taxes on the
same scale as for business property.
Aid. Hilditch continuing said that he
would oppose Aid. Lynch's motion not
because he did not want Third avevnue
graded, but because he wanted to see
First avenue graded from the junction
to McBride street. A plank roadway
would serve the people beyond the junction for years to come he thought. A
large number of the owners there were
absentees and those residents there
did not want to pay heavy taxes.   Aid.

Hilditch would like to see the work
stopped in the part of Second avenue
below the junction and the money
devoted to work on First avenue.
Aid.  Lynch  argued  that  the  work
now   being   done   on   Second   avenue
beyond  the  junction   could  never  be
done cheaper than at present, and said
that  the  residents  and  owners  there
were aware of this and anxious to have
the grading done.    He mentioned that
he had bought a lot there for $500 and
sold  it  for  $2000  as  proof that the
property was by no means as unimportant  compared  with  the  congested
| section   as   might   seem.     Lots   were
leaping  to  speculative  values  in  that
district,   and   could   bear   assessment
for grading all right.    If the grading
were postponed for even another year
I it would cost $100,000 more to do.   Aid.
j Lynch said that personally he had no
fears  regarding  the  supply  of  money
: for the grading of all of Section One.  He
was   confident   that   the   city's   bonds
I would be all sold long before the time
came for the last payment to be made
on grading work there, and the Bank
of  Montreal  would  be  paid  off.    He
strongly advocated the policy of going
i right ahead with the grading in progress
; and getting busy with the new contracts
��� proposed at once.
Aid: Pattullo rose to support Aid.
Lynch's motion. He said that he felt
that the city ought on no account to go
back on any work but should ever press
forward. Besides it was ridiculous for
the council to chop and change about
after Settling matters by full deliberation
and decision.
Aid. Hilditch said that no matter
whether Aid. Lynch had paid $500 for
a lot there and sold it for $2000, still
there were lots in that district assessed
at only $300. The situation was unfair for some of the citizens. He admitted the legal but not the moral right
regarding this assessment. Some of
the lots here were taxed to the extent
of only $3 and yet here was the city's
credit being pledged to the extent of
���$250 a lot for this grading. It was
straining' the city's "borrowing power
heavily, and mortgaging outlying property's borrowing power for its own
improvement. It was not giving the
outside man a chance to have his own
property improved later on.
Aid. Pattullo pointed out that the
legal and moral issue in this matter
was identical for both the general fund
system and local improvement plan.
It was impossible to build all of the city
at once, and the wisest course was to
go ahead with the business section
first as it's completion would benefit
all Boot ions. "I have a good deal_of
outside property myself," said Aid.
Pattullo, "for which I would not give
a button unless there were a good
business section."
Aid. Hilditch again rose apologetically
but saying that he had to reply to Aid.
Pattullo as when aldermen threw talk
like his it had got to be answered. The
question was to give the people the
privilege of saying which portions of
the city should get improved. The
moral obligations of the city to the
citizens would be discharged if the
matter were fairly put to the people.
As matters were going at present they
had no say in the matter at all.  '
Aid. Mclntyre said there was a good
deal of truth in Aid. Hilditch's remarks,
and indeed some of his arguments were
unanswerable. At the same time they
had started on this work, and it certainly
could be done cheaper now than later
on. He believed the assessments would
increase rapidly as the improvements
went on, and the city's borrowing power
would accordingly increase. He was
therefore ready to support the motion.
Aid. Lynch said he had very strong
reason to believe that many people
might have wanted grading work stopped
at Eighth street. He knew of one
citizen at any rate whose opinion to
that effect he had read in a local paper.
However, the choice remained simply
whether they should have Watson's
contract stopped in order that work
might br taken up on another section
instead by him at his own terms or
keep on with this contract to a finish

Aid. Barrow could not see any sense
in switching Watson off Second avenue
either to Third avenue to please Aid.
Mclntyre or to First to please Aid.
Hilditch. He was not altogether in
agreement with Aid. Hilditch's financial
calculations, but he had a great respect
for both his colleagues of the Streets
committee. The trouble, however, to
him seemed to consist mainly in the
fact that Aid. Lynch was the apostle
of the Frontage Tax system, while Aid.
Hilditch was the high priest of the
General Fund plan, and like the head of
Charles the First in Dickens' story
these subjects would keep coming into
all possible discussions.
Aid. Pattullo then asked that the
question be put regarding the motion.
Aid. Hilditch asked if the idea then
was that Watson should go on with
his end of Second avenue.
Aid. Pattullo suggested leaving that
matter open for Aid. Hilditch's benefit
at ensuing council meetings.
*Ald. Hilditch replied that he was
ready to go on thrashing it out until
the council was tired of it if need be.
The motion was then put and carried.
Aid. Hilditch merely refrained from
voting.

Aid. Hilditch said City Clerk Woods'
report of the city's financial position
was beautiful for its ambiguousness, and
not at all what he wanted in the way of
a statement. He was prepared now to
dig out the details for himself.
Aid. Barrow said that it was a matter
for the chairmen of committees to
discover the details of their own committee's expenditure from the books
of their departments, as Aid. Hilditch
had said he was to do.
Aid. Pattullo said that the city clerk's
report satisfied him and was all he
wanted. It was impossible in the time
available for the more detailed report
wanted by Aid. Hilditch to be prepared.
Aid. Hilditch said that he was going
to find out for himself what he wanted to know. THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST

Seattle, Oct. 7.���Unless Seattle business men take an active interest in the
development of Alaska this city will
never become a great port and the
progress of the Northern district will be
slow is the statement of John Rosene,
who has long been identified with large
enterprises in tbe North.
"It is a fast that Seattle business
men do not even go to the trouble to
ascertain what is going on in Alaska,"
aaid Mr. Rosene yesterday. "Although
Alaska is directly responsible for tbe
rapid growth of the city since the discovery of the Klondike, there appears
to be little interest displayed in the
development of the North. It will be
learned some day that Seattle's importance as a commercial center will depend upon the growth of Alaska.
"The fuel for the Pacific coast during
the next fifteen years will come largely
from Alaska. The coal from the rich
northern fields must be carried 1,500
miles in ships and the home port of this
fleet will become the commercial and
shipping center of the Pacific coast.
"Seattle is the home port of a small
fleet nf steamships which are controlled
from New York. So far as I am informed, not one Seattle man is on tbe
board of directors and little Seattle
capital, if any, is interested in the
transportation lines. If the people of
Seattle owned the transportation lines
to and within Alaska, they would in
time own as much of the recources of
the district as they want, as one follows the other.
"I believe that one of the most important lines of endeavor that the
Chamber of Commerce could undertake
would be to arouse general interest in
Alaska. The condition of things at
present shows that there are fewer inhabitants of the district today than for
many years. I have recently experimented in a campaign of publicity to
test the interest in Alaska. I found
that the public was keen to know all
about the great district, but that it had
little accurate knowledge.	
"Today Alaska is the land of promise, the place where there is room for
everybody and a place of wonderful opportunities. Instead of having the tide
of travel set outward from Alaska it
should be going north. Business men
of Seattle realize that trade with Alaska
is getting duller every year, but they
have not troubled themselves to ascertain the cause. With 500,000 people in
Alaska, Seattle would become important
as a manufacturing center; it cannot
become important in that respect without the development of Alaska."
During the years that Mr. Rosene has
lived in Seattle he has secured more
money for Alaska enterprises than the
combined capital of all the banks in
this city. He has been energetic in
trying to center Alaska's business in
Seattle, and his interest has been of
broader scope than mere personal ambition.
Mr. Rosene will leave shortly for Europe in the interest of a big Alaska
project. One of the enterprises that
he is interested in is the building of a
railroad from Controller bay to the
Behring coal fields. The preliminary
surveys have been made for a line
from fifteen to twenty miles long,
with its southern terminal in a protected
harbor on Controller bay.

ADEfiTOWN HAS

VERY SHORT TIME
Humorist Says If It Keeps on Doubling IU Population It Will Have
Double That of New York in Twenty Years.
Washinfton, Oct. 7.���Geotge Ade,
humorist and playwright, makes the
boast that the town of Ade, Ind., which
is named after him, is growing faster
than any community in the world.
"When the town Was established by
the Indian Harbor railroad about eight
miles north of Kentland, where I was
bom," said Ade, "the country sent a
station agent there. That made the
population one. The next year the
agent married. That was an increase
of 100 per cent in a year. The season
foUowing a baby was born to the agent,
and the company sent a baggage man
That made the population four, and
it had again doubled within twelve
months.
"The following year the Presbyterian
preacher and his wife and an elevator
man and his wife moved into town.
That made the population eight. Now,
I calculate that if the town of Ade
keeps on doubling its population every
year, as it has been doing, it will have
12,391,920 people, or about twice as
many as New York, in 1930."
AGAINST THE CHANGE
Vancouver  News Advertiser  Prefers
Name of Hudson Bay
The frivolous desire of some people
to change the names of places has inspired an agitation to have Hudson Bay
called the Canadian Sea. There is
nothing the matter with the name of
Hudson Bay. Those who think that a
sea is larger and more important than
a bay might at least be content with a
change of that word. But there is no
need to change anything. The distinction between a bay abd a sea is delightfully vague. Seas are sometimes
mere inland lakes, like the Sea of Galilee or Aral Sea. Sometimes they are
arms of the ocean, as the Caribbean
Sea or the North Sea. Bays are sometimes projections of the ocean, as the
Bay of Biscay. They may be nearly
enclosed, as Hudson Bay, or more open,
as the Bav-o^JJengaL- They may be
large, like the last named water, or
smaller, like the Bay of Gibralter.
There is no distinction of size or
shape which makes it more proper to
call Hudson Bay a sea. Still less is
there reason to give up the name of
the navigator who first cruised its shores,
and whose bones lie beneath its waters.
When a name has been long associated
with a geographical position it should
remain, unless strong reasons are found
for a change. But in this case all the
strong reasons are against any change.
It will be time enough to call Hudson
Bay the Canadian Sea when the United
States changes the Mississippi to the
American River. One would be as
much a fool trick as the other.
HUDSON'S BAY COMPANY
Plans    for    Reorganization    of    Its
Many Trading Stores.
Winnipeg, Oct. 9.���Persistent rumors
are current here that Mr. Chipman, of
the Hudson's Bay company, who arrived here from England yesterday, has
had his powers curtailed and that only
the lands and furs department are
to be in his' charge in future. The
stores from Fort William to Vancouver,
170 in number, will be under Mr.
Herbert Burbidge, son of the manager
of Harrods, London, aa general manager. Mr. Chipman announces that he
will make a statement on Monday.
Mr. Burbidge has sailed from Liverpool

LIGHT WANTED
FOR PREMISES
ALD. HILDITCH WANTS ANOTHER
MACHINE
Light Committee Has Been Already
Thinking of Having One Ordered.
Aid. Mobley on Aid. Hilditch's)
Good Judgment.
Aid. Hilditch said at last night's
city council meeting that he thought a
second electric light machine should
be installed right away in the new
lighting station so that ilght could be
supplied to business premises and dwellings. The city light plant should be
self supporting like the phone system.
Aid. Lynch solicited the advice of his
fellow aldermen in the various matters
of the lighting business at present.
The committee was one of only two
members at the moment, he said, and
would be glad of assistance.
Aid. Mobley complimented Aid. Hilditch on his good judgment. It was
either that, he said, or Aid. Hilditch
must have peeped into the committee's
plans for his idea was exactly that of the
committee for the immediate future.
He mentioned that he also would be
glad of his fellow councillors' opinions.
Aid. Hilditch was delighted that Aid.
Mobley was so conciliatory.. He said
he had only used his own unaided
judgment in this idea of his regarding
the light proposal. He referred to the
quantities of wire "scattered all over
the city" which he thought might be
used to advantage in connecting the
main wiring system with the consumers'
houses.
Aid. Mobley said he hadn't got
entangled in any of that wire yet, but J
no doubt there was a good deal of!
copper wire hanging around the city
and as copper it was valuable in any case
whether it could be used as Aid. Hilditch I
Suggested or not.
Aid. Lynch said that they might not
be allowed to use a good deal of thiB
old wire as it was not well insulated.
The matter he thought could be safely
left to the electricians.
Aid. Barrow aaid that if the light
plant were to be self supporting the rate
for supply would need to be pretty high
at first.
The Mayor said much depended on
the price of coal used in making the light.
Aid. Mobley agreed that it would be
advisable to fix the rate reasonably high.
The main thing was to have light.
Regarding the wire referred to by Aid.
Hilditch, it could be gathered up as
the workmen proceeded with the installation of the new plant.
Annual Thanksgiving Banquet
The Ladies of the Methodist Church
