EARTHQUAKE DAMAGES NAPLES
Salerno Also Laid Waste.���Quake Followed By Volcanic
Fires and Huge Tidal Wave.���Two Hundred
Bodies Among Wreckage of Boats.
(Special to the Optimist)
Oct. 25.���Ravaged by earth-
volcanic  fires  and  flood,  the
of  Naples  and  Salerno  are
today laid  waste and. desolate.    The
authorities   are   apparently   appalled.
Theihores are strewn with the wrecks
vessels.    The dead  on  the
island of Ischis number over two hundred.
The earthquake was followed by  a
tidal wave  that  submerged  the
ihore for miles, threw all the vessels
upon it high up into the streets and
vineyards, leaving among the wreckage
scores of dead.
With the first earthquake shock
many of the inhabitants of Naples fled,
many large buildings falling as. they
hurried through the streets to the railway and the quay. With the great
exodus owing to the cholera scare, and
that following the earthquake, the city
is practically deserted by all able to
get away.
And it is feared the worst is yet to
come. The volcano of Epome, which
in 1883 overwhelmed Casamiccola, has
become active. Vesuvius is less violent
this morning, but scientists say the
conditions arc exactly those preceding
any great eruption. The worst is
therefore to be feared.
DOLLAR FINE
FOR SWEARING
ON PUBLIC STREET.   FRANK KELLY COMPLAINED OF
Magistrate Caraa Imposes Fine to Remind Accused of City By-law
Against Bad Language  in   Public
Places.
The principal case before Magistrate
Carss at this morning's police court
was that 0/ Prank Kelly of the Union
Transfer company who was charged
with having addressed insulting and
profane language towards W. H. Morrison on Saturday night last at the
intersection of Third avenue and Sixth
street.
F. Kelly had come with his teamster
>nd a heavy wagon and team load of
window and door frames for the new
Salvation Army building on wihch Mr.
Morrison is foreman during construc-
��on. The team arrived after 6 p.m.
"hen the men were away, but Mr.
Morrison was there, and said that the
��ad should be taken up to the building.
Mr* Kelly said it couldn't be done
'"'-'-��� with the wagon and team, and the
��e complained of was the outcome 6f the dispute between Kelly and
Morrison. The words mentioned in
we evidence of complainer and his
Wness, W. T. Mews, as having been
"����i by accused are far from pretty,
*igh one phrase is a form of blas-
Ptany in common currency. Accused
id not deny having used this phrase,
M another ugly and thoroughly un-
��vory word he absolutely denied having
'Poken, saying he never used it.

had not taken the load up was because
it was absolutely dangerous to do so
with that team. He had taken loads
up before with lighter teams however,
When he called Mr. Morrison a certain
kind of fool he thought Mr. Morrison
was just that kind of fool to want the
load taken up, and that the language
was justifiable.
Magistrate Carss found that accused
was clearly guilty of infringing the city
by-law against such language and fined
F. Kelly one dollar "to remind him that
there was a by-law."
The Magistrate said the question
had nothing to do with the provocation
it was simply whether or not the language
had been used on the street.
CITY CLERK AT HIS POST AGAIN
And   Is  Congratulated   on   Hia   Recovery by Aldermen
When City Clerk Woods appeared
last night to resume his place at the
council table there was a general expression of satisfaction that he had
recovered from his recent indisposition.
Though suffering a good deal from the
effects of over-concentration upon his
multifarious duties Mr. Woods has not
allowed his illness to put him out of
touch with the City Hall work and has
buckled to again vigorously.
TKE POPULAR MAN
Who Will Win the $75 Gold Headed
Cane
On November 4th in Mclnytre Hall
will be a contest unique and interesting.
It is a public vote for the most popular
man in the city and the prize is a $75
gold headed cane, presented by the
ladies who are organizing the bazaar
under the auspices of the Roman Catholic
Church.
The ballot box for the popular vote
will be open from 3 o'clock in the afternoon until 9:30 in the evening. There
are only two candidates, Mayor Stork
and Aid. V. W. Smith. A vote costs
ten cents and the purchaser takes his
choice.
Don't   Swear
Last Saturday Magistrate Carss fined
a young man $5 for having used foul
language on Third avenue, saying in
unmistakable terms that he meant to
to put down this abominable practice
with the utmost vigor. Today for the
same offence the same Magistrate fined
a local business man one dollar "just
to remind him of the existence of the
by-law against swearing."

and Fifty People Aboard.
(Special to the Optimist)
St. Johns, Nfd., Oct. 25.���Nineteen
members of the crew of the steamer
Regulus, running from here to New
York, were drowned yesterday. The
tail shaft broke'and for several hours
she was at the mercy of a heavy gale.
At length a tug came to her assistance
but she had scarcely been made fast
when the hawser broke. The steamer
was then carried by the wind and tide
ashore in the Bay of Bulls, and she there
lies a total wreck.

PLOTTING SPANISH REVOLUTION
General   Uprising   Expected   To   Follow   Republican
Gathering.���Soldiers Being Paid Arrears and Salaries Of Non-Commissioned Officers Raised.
(Special to the Optimist)
Madrid, Oct. 25.���The reports of the
discovery of a plot to start a revolution
in Spain similar to that which has
proved so successful in Portugal is
causing great uneasiness to the government. The announced gathering of the
Republicans is looked forward to with
great anxiety, as it is generally expected
this will be followed by an uprising
against the crown. The pay of all noncommissioned officers has been raised
and the back pay of both rank and file
has been met.
The government now claims that it is
prepared to cope with any emergency'
but this is not generally believed as so
large a contingent of the army are now
on service in Morocco.
Three- Drunks  Fined
Three cases of drunk and disorderly
were dealt with in today's police court.
David Moriarity was fined $5 and costs,
James McKinley $3 and costs and John
Hachstrom $5 and costs. McKinley
who had put up $5 bail failed to appear.
The Knox launch left at 6 a.m. today
for Lucy Island lighthouse with mail.
THINK CITY SHOULD REPAIR
Plankway Put in at Private Expense
Previous to Incorporation
A number of prominent citizens
resident or in business in and in the
neighborhood of the Exchange Block,
have petitioned the city council regarding
the repair of the plankway between
Third avenue and Fraser street which
was put in at their private expense before
the city was incorporated.
These citizens state that they had
petitioned the Government for this
plankway first, and had eventually
put in the plankway themselves, and
now agree that it is up to the city to
keep it in repair. The petition states
that the building inspector is particularly interested in the state of
repair of the plankway in question, and
desires that the city should see to it.
The Streets committee will consider the
matter.
VOTERS IN CITY'S EMPLOY
May Get on Register If They Pledge
Their Credit With City to Extent of Road Tax.
Aid. Hilditch asked the Mayor last
night if qualified voters doing work
at present for city wages might have
their names put on the voters' register
provided they agreed to have the amount
of their road tax deducted from their
wages when they became due at the end
of the month. The amount is of course
$2, and as Aid. Hilditch remarked the
city has a cinch on it anyway.
The Mayor said there was no reason
against these voters being allowed to
place their names on the register provided that they authorized the necessary
deduction from their wages clearly.
FROM THE BANK
OF MONTREAL
LETTER TO MAYOR PROMISING
$500,000 ADVANCE
Bank's General Manager Authorizes
Mr. Clancy to Make the Advance
for Work to Which City Is Committed but Not to Exceed the Sum.
The following letter was read by the
city clerk at last night's city council
meeting:
Bank of Montreal
Prince Rupert, B. C.
October 24,1910.
F. Stork, Esq, Mayor, City
of Prince Rupert, B. C.
Dear Sir,���Following my letter of 10th
inst., I beg to advise you that I am now
further authorized by the General Manager, to advance to the city sufficient
to prosecute the works to which it is
committed, but not to exceed $500,000.
I  trust  that an  amiable settlement
with the Grand Trunk Pacific railway
company with reference to their assessment may be early arrived at.
Yours truly,
J. W. CLANCY, Acting Manager
The letter was referred to the Finance-
committee.
GRADING OF THIRD AVENUE
Recommendation Will  Be Made by
Streets Committee on Thursday
Aid. Pattullo made the request that
owing to the action of the Bank of
Montreal in furnishing the funds required for the city grading work prepared for, the Streets committee might
on Thursday night bring in a recom-
ion that tenders be called for
the grading of Third avenue, and the
other portions of Section One planned
for to the extent of the funds available.
The request will be acted upon by the
committee.
L. Crippen left this morning for Port
Essington to sell three booms of lumber
there by order of the sheriff.
Time to Think It Over
The other day Alexander McBlank,
let us call him, who was a person in
authority in the Northwest Territories
forty years ago, got a snug billet for his
old age in Ottawa. He was smiling
broadly when Hugh John Macdonald
met him on Main street, Winnipeg.
"Is it the new job, Sandy?" "Naw,
naw, Mister Macdonald, it's an old
joke I've just kenned. When I was in
Battleford, twenty-five years syne, I
sent a wee bit message to Ottawa:
'Indian uprising threatened. What shall
I do?' And some young fellow answered
back: 'Get your hair cut.' It's only
now I see the reason���they didna want
me to be scaplit."���Canadian Colliers.

APPEAL CASE DISMISSED
Judge  Young's  Decision  in Rex vs.
Rosang   Case
The appeal case Rex vs. Rosang came
up yesterday before Judge Young in
the County Couit. The question of
the proper serving of notice of appeal by
counsel for the appellant was again
argued. Notice should have been served
upon the respondent or his solicitor. The
question of who was the proper respondent in this case, whether Magistrate McMullin, who tried the case at
first, Magistrate Carss as City Police
Magistrate, Chief Constable McCarvell,
was the puzzle. There was also the
question of whether Mr. Manson had
appeared as solicitor for the city or
for the Chief Constable at the trial.
Mr. Patmore thought Mr. Manson had
distinctly said at the trial, that he
appeared for the city. Mr. Manson
disagreed with him. Mr. Patmore
thought Mr. Manson was not acting in
good faith in the matter and suggested
that he was taking "the underground
road" to get out of the appeal case. Mr.
Manson replied that his learned friend
was playing to the gallery a bit. Mr.
Patmore was ready to call witnesses to
prove that Mr. Manson had said at the
trial that he appeared for the city.
"Oh, surely you can trust counsel's
word in a matter like this," said Judge
Young.
"I should like to," said Mr. Patmore.
Mr. Manson said that if he had said
he appeared for the city ip that case,
the words were used colloquially, but
he did not recall using them at all.
Judge Young dismissed the appeal
case saying he would consider the
question of costs.
"The state of the law requires the
greatest care," he said, "in serving
notice of appeal. The safest way is to
deal directly with the respondent. In
this case everybody thought the city
of Prince Rupert was the respondent
and it turns out that it was Chief McCarvell."

EVELYN THAW
SHORT OF CASH
DEPENDED ON THE BOUNTY OF
HER HUSBAND'S PEOPLE
Promises No Doubt Made at Second
Trial When Her Evidence Was So
Essential���Now Practically Without Funds Whatever.
LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
The Westholme Lumber Co.
Proprietors
New York, Oct. 20.���Once the central
figure in gay night revels and saturnalias about the heart of the city,
where money was plentiful and time
hung lesiurely on the hands of her
admirers, Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, wife
of Harry Kendall Thaw, murderer of
Stanford White, by all accounts is up
against it.
The prevailing suspicion that she
received a large sum of money from
the family of her husband in consideration of her sensational testimony at
his trial, appears to have had little
basis in fact. There is no doubt that
she was promised a fortune, but being of a trusting nature and lacking
in business shrewdness, she neglected
to drive a good bargain when she could
have done so, accepting the assurances
of the Thaws that they would provide
her with a substantial annuity. But
for her testimony, nothing in the world
would have saved Thaw from going to
the electric chair.
Realizing this, the shabby treatment
accorded her by the Thaw family has
since made her feel that she lost a
golden opportunity to make herself
comfortable for life when she failed
to make them guarantee her a fixed
sum. Her discontinuance the other
day of her suit for damages against
the Knickerbocker hotel for ejecting
her and E. R. Thomas, the banker,
from its dining room in 1908, revealed
the fact that she is practically without
funds of any kind.

LAST OUT OF DAWSON
Steamer  La  France  Crowded  With
Last of the Migrates
Dawson, Oct. 21.���The steamer La
France, the last steamer of the year
to sail from Dawson for White Horse,
got away Monday night, crowded with
hundreds of passengers, including some
of the best known operators. All
freight for way points was refused,
as the boat has a race against ice.
Pelly and Stewart rivers are throwing
heavy ice and there is considerable
running past Dawson.
The first mail stage from Dawson
to White Horse this season started
yesterday and expects to make White
Horse in seven days and to do as well
as the La France. More people are
remaining in the Klondike camps at
work this year than last, due chiefly
to the heavy construction work of the
Treadgold Gold Mining and Power
Company.
TWO PROSPECTORS KILLED
Tree Came Crashing Down on Tent
While They Slept
New Westminster, Oct. 22.���Two
bodies, supposed to be those of George
Blake, Sr., and George Blake, Jr., have
been discovered on the shores of Scott
Creek, Pitt Lake, life having apparently been crushed out of the prospectors by a tree crashing through their
tent while they were asleep. The
Blakes had been missing since May.
An inquest will be held as soon as
the bodies are brought down from
the lake, Constable Wilkie being now
in that district arranging this detail.
While the bodies have not yet been
definitely identified, there is little reason
to doubt that the Blakes are the victims
of this tragedy.
Men live in part by their own efforts;

Her Secret of Longevity
Julia Ward Howe once said that
her recipe for longevity was to learn
a new language every ten years and
to associate as much as possible with
young people. I suppose she began
the study of a fresh tongue when she
was ninety. Both items of her recipe
are good, though it is not all elderly
people who have the faculty either for
language-learning or for retaining a
lively friendship with the young. The
latter, be it said, demands that there
shall be a certain amount of reciprocity
on the part of the young people themselves. These, however, are usually
'quite accessible if the "old party" will
only remember the time when he or
she was young, and act accordingly.
It may take an effort of memory to turn
back and imagine oneself in the late
teens, or the early twenties, butfit can
be done, and it is not an unpleinsing
effort of the fancy. And the old parties
can always tell whether they are doing
it successfully or not by the attitude
of the young people towards them.
These latter are sometimes quite surprised that these seniors can see through
them so well.
Pfetty speeches make very sickly conversation.���G. Bernard Shaw.

APPEAL CASE DISMISSED
Judge  Young's Decision  in  Rex vs.
Rosang  Case
The appeal case Rex vs. Rosang came
up yesterday before Judge Young in
the County Couit. The question of
the proper serving of notice of appeal by
counsel for the appellant was again
argued. Notice should have been served
upon the respondent or his solicitor. The
question of who was the proper respondent in this case, whether Magistrate McMullin, who tried the case at
first, Magistrate Carss as City Police
Magistrate, Chief Constable McCarvell,
was the puzzle. There was also the
question of whether Mr. Manson had
appeared as solicitor for the city or
for the Chief Constable at the trial.
Mr. Patmore thought Mr. Manson had
distinctly said at the trial, that he
appeared for the city. Mr. Manson
disagreed with him. Mr. Patmore
thought Mr. Manson was not acting in
good fakh in the matter and suggested
that he was taking "the underground
road" to get out of the appeal case. Mr.
Manson replied that his learned friend
was playing to the gallery a bit. Mr.
Patmore was ready to call witnesses to
prove that Mr. Manson had said at the
trial that he appeared for the city.
"Oh, surely you can trust counsel's
word in a matter like this," said Judge
Young.
"I should like to," said Mr. Patmore.
Mr. Manson said that if he had said
he appeared for the city in that case,
the words were used colloquially, but
he did not recall using them at all.
Judge Young dismissed the appeal
case saying he would consider the
question ot costs.
"The state of the law requires the
greatest care," he said, "in serving
notice of appeal. The safest way is to
deal directly with the respondent. In
this case everybody thought the city
of Prince Rupert was the respondent
and it turns out that it was Chief McCarvell."

LAST OUT OF DAWSON
Steamer La France Crowded  With
Last of the Migrates
Dawson, Oct. 21.���The steamer La
France, the last steamer of the year
to sail from Dawson for White Horse,
got away Monday night, crowded with
hundreds of passengers, including some
of the best known operators. All
freight for way points was refused,
as the boat has a race against ice.
Pelly and Stewart rivers are throwing
heavy ice and there iB considerable
running past Dawson.
The first mail stage from Dawson
to White Horse this season started
yesterday and expects to make White
Horse in seven days and to do as well
as the La France. More people are
remaining in the Klondike camps at
work this year than last, due chiefly
to the heavy construction work of the
Treadgold Gold Mining and Power
Company.
TWO PROSPECTORS KILLED
Tree Came Crashing Down on Tent
While They Slept
New Westminster, Oct. 22.���Two
bodies, supposed to be those of George
Blake, Sr., and George Blake, Jr., have
been discovered on the shores of Scott
Creek, Pitt Lake, life having apparently been crushed out of the prospectors by a tree crashing through their
tent while they were asleep. The
Blakes had been missing since May.
An inquest will be held as soon as
the bodies are brought down from
the lake, Constable Wilkie being now
in that district arranging this detail.
While the bodies have not yet been
definitely identified, there is little reason
to doubt that the Blakes are the victims
of this tragedy.
Men live in part by their own efforts;
but in the greater part by the help of
others.���Ruskin.
New York, Oct. 20.���Once the central
figure in gay night revels and saturnalias about the heart of the city,
where money was plentiful and time
hung lesiurely on the hands of her
admirers, Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, wife
of Harry Kendall Thaw, murderer of
Stanford White, by all accounts is up
against it.
The prevailing suspicion that she
received a large sum of money from
the family of her husband in consideration of her sensational testimony at
his trial, appears to have had little
basis in fact. There is no doubt that
she was promised a fortune, but being of a trusting nature and lacking
in business shrewdness, she neglected
to drive a good bargain when she could
have done so, accepting the assurances
of the Thaws that they would provide
her with a substantial annuity. But
for her testimony, nothing in the world
would have saved Thaw from going to
the electric chair.
Realizing this, the shabby treatment
accorded her by the Thaw family has
since made her feel that she lost a
golden opportunity to make herself
comfortable for life when she failed
to make them guarantee her a fixed
sum. Her discontinuance the other
day of her suit for damages against
the Knickerbocker hotel for ejecting
her and E. R. Thomas, the banker,
from its dining room in 1908, revealed
the fact that she is practically without
funds of any kind.

Her Secret of Longevity
Julia Ward Howe once said that
her recipe for longevity was to learn
a new language every ten years and
to associate as much as possible with
young people. I suppose she began
the study of a fresh tongue when she
was ninety. Both items of her recipe
are good, though it is not all elderly
people who have the faculty either for
language-learning or for retaining a
lively friendship with the young. The
latter, be it said, demands that there
shall be a certain amount of reciprocity
on the part of the young people themselves. These, however, are usually
quite accessible if the "old party" will
only remember the time when he or
she was young, and act accordingly.
It may take an effort of memory to turn
back and imagine oneself in the late
teens, or the early twenties, but it can
be done, and it is not an unpleasing
effort of the fancy. And the old parties
can always tell whether they are doing
it successfully or not by the attitude
of the young people towards them.
These latter are sometimes quite surprised that these seniors can see through
them so well.
Pretty speeches make very sickly conversation.���G. Bernard Shaw.
True marriage is presupposed, not
created by ceremony and legal forms.���

WILL ASK FOR A SUBSIDY
Within the next few years it is likely that considerable capital will be employed
in the development of our Pacific coast fisheries, says the Monetary Times. Sir
George Doughty is about to return to England after an inspection of the sea wealth
along the British Columbia's edge. He is an expert in fishing matters, and will
convey a favorable report to influential British investors, who will be advised to
establish a Canadian fishing industry in British Columbia, backed by British
capital. He regrets that at the present time the fisheries, which extend from Vancouver north to Stewart, are exploited almost exclusively by Americans and Japanese. As a large amount of money will be required to develop the scheme proposed
by Sir George, an application may be made to the Canadian Government for assistance in the form of a subsidy. Undoubtedly there are great possibilities in Canada's
fishing grounds.   They await only capital and enterprise. ,
The Bank of Montreal having come through with another quarter million
loan the local merchants may anticipate a merry Christmas.
With the whole of Section One grading work under way the city pay roll will
not only make business active but prosperous.
If the G. T. P. does not hurry up their transcontinental the aviators will make
the line unnecessary before it ever opens.
The dispatch with which the famous Crippen murder case was disposed of
in England is an example of the relentlessness of justice in Great Britain and the
stability of British institutions. Public agitation did not stampede the courts nor
did sensationalism and high-priced counsel avail the guilty anything. It is an
example which is almost incomprehensible to the American people.

IN NOVA SCOTIA
PREMIER  MURRAY  DECIDES TO
GO TO SENATE
Succeeds Senator McGregor Who
Becomes Lieutenant-Governor���
Attorney-General Maclean Has the
Honor of Becoming Premier.
Lunenburg, N. S., Oct. 22.���The attorney-general, Hon. A. K. Maclean,
succeeds Hon. Mr. Murray as premier of
Nova Scotia, the latter going to the
senate.
Senator J. D. McGregor, of Pictou
county, succeeds Hon. D. C. Fraser, of
the same county, in the position of
liuetenant-governor. Mr. McGregor is
an opulent business man, connected
with several Nova Scotia financial
corporations. He has been a member of
the provincial legislature but failed in
his attempt to reach the house of commons. His effective activities have been
in the domain of business rather than
politics.
This seems to be a non-partisan change
of administration all round. Premier
Murray's health is failing therefore he
goes to the senate as successor to Senator
McGregor who has become the lieutenant-governor, giving his own place to
Hon. A. K. Maclean, the attorney-general. Mr. Murray has been the leader
of the Nova Scotia government since
1896, when Mr. Fielding entered the
Laurier administration. Mr. Maclean sat
for Lunenburg in the house of commons
in the last parliament, and joined the
provincial government on the death of
the late Attorney-General Pipes.

WHITE FLYER OF THE SKEENA'
Is Much Admired by a Correspondent
Who Tells of Her Achievements
A correspondent who evidently greatly
admires the river steamer Port Simpson
writes as follows:
"The whole fleet of up river steamers
left Rupert together for Hazelton, last
week just as the much needed rain
commenced to fall. The Port Simpson,
"The White Flyer of the Skeena" happened to be the last to get away. But
Captain Jackman and Engineer Dennison felt that with the rising water
they would not be the last boat to
reach their destination. Early on the
morning .of the 19th the "Flyer" overhauled the steamer Hazelton, and Captain Gardener called upon the engineer
for more steam. It was no good, the
'Flyer' sped past her through the canyon
and soon overhauled the steamer Inlander though Captain Busey was frantic.
Onward she sped overhauling the steamer Omineca and her captain seeing what
was coming gave her the right of way.
"Then came the final struggle with
the steamer Distributor, but like all
the others she was soon overhauled and
distanced and the Port Simpson arrived
safely in Hazelton on the morning of the
22nd, after making every stop on the
way and discharging fifty tons of freight
for the Grand Trunk company at
Seelyville, thus finishing one of the
fastest and most exciting races on
record."
TAKES  NEW CHARGE
Vancouver   Rector   Is   Called   to   a
Charge in Ontario
Vancouver, Oct. 22.���Rev. Dr. Norman Tucker, who for nine years was
rector of Christ church in this city, preceding Rev. C. C. Owen, the present
rector, has accepted the charge of St.
Paul's cathedral, London, Ontario.
Dr. Tucker left Vancouver to become
the first general secretary for the Church
of England missions in Canada, and was
very successful in the work. Under his
leadreship, the income increased three
times what it was when he assumed the
duties of the office.
He will be succeeded as general sec
retary by Rev. Sydney Gould, B. A.,
M. D., who graduated from Wycliffe
college in 1893. Since that time he
has been engaged in missionary work
in Jerusalem, and is regarded as one
of the greatest authorities on the Mohammedan world.
TO DEVELOP NORTHWEST
British   Columbia   and   Alberta   in
League With Adjoining States
Seattle, Oct. 22.���Mr. Leigh H. Irvine,
of the editorial staff of the Post-Intelligencer, addressed two hundred bankers at the Elk's hall today on the development of the northwest. He is organizing
the Northwest Development league,
which will embrace British Columbia
and Alberta, as well as Idaho and
Oregon.
Mr. Irvine will address the Rotary
club next week, and expects to visit
Vancouver at an early date in the interest of the league. He considers the
entire northwest an economic unit,
regardless of geographical lines.
Young Corbett'a Days Are Over
New York, Oct. 22.���Young Cor-
bett's days as a pugilist are over. For
the second time since he first retired
the former great lightweight attempted to "come back" but he was handed
a terrific beating by Willie Beecher,
a New York second-rater, in scheduled
ten-round go here last night.
If thou would'st have all about thee
like the colors of some fresh picture
in a clear light, be temperate in all
things, and of a peaceful heart with thy
fellows.���Waller Patter.
Whenever I find a great deal of
gratitude in a poor man I take it for
granted there would be as much generosity if he were a rich man.���Pope.

HAPPENINGS ON
PORCHER ISLAND
SECOND   ANNUAL   MEETING   OF
SETTLERS'   ASSOCIATION
Election of Officer* for Ensuing Year
���Discontent Expressed That the
Promised Wharf Is Not Yet Under
Construction.
The Porcher Island Settlers' association held their second annual general
meeting on Saturday the 16th of this
month. A good number were present
and all reported excellent progress in the
development of the island. The officers
elected for the ensuing year were F. J.
Bacon, president; J. Cody, vice-president; A. Beavan, secretary-treasurer.
No little discontent was shown about
the promised wharf, which now should
have been under way, an appropriation
having been made in this year's estimates.
The increasing freight and passenger
traffic already calls for at least a weekly
steamship service both ways, and wharf
accommodation for the same.
Roads for next year were discussed at
length, and a large appropriation is
hoped for and necessary to keep pace
with the rapidly increasing settlement,
Everything on the island is looking
first rate, and it is to be hoped the
Government with their assistance will
keep up with the progress.
A. J. Haines and E. V. Sheramonds
leave this month on an extended trip
to the Old Country.
Fraser Murray arrived on last Friday's
steamer to take charge of the school. He
is a native of Nova Scotia. We feel
sure the school will make good progress
under his tuition.
One of our members returning from
a trip up the Skeena returned lately,
was glad to get back to Porcher, and
expressed himself well pleased with his
holdings on the island and its future
prospects, especially in its proximity to
the City of Prince Rupert, which we
look on as a sure market for all produce
in the near future.
Naas Cannery Sold
The Port Nelson cannery on the Naas
has been sold to the A. B. C. Packing
company. The price is said to be
$37,000. The A. B. C. Packing company has about a dozen canneries now
and the Port Nelson plant is the first
one they have secured on the Naas.
Three Classes of Men
In the recent speech, at the unveiling
of a memorial tablet to the late Mr.
T. E. Ellis, who was chief Liberal
whip during the Rosebery administration, Mr. Lloyd-George gave a notable
description of three classes of men
ih British public life.   He said:      <
"As a rule, you will find three classes of men in political life. You will
see a man who takes an honorable
pride in representing his fellow-citizens in the greatest parliament in the
world. That represent* the climax of
his abmition. As a rule, honest, straightforward, sincere, ready to make sacrifices for his party because he firmly
and conscientiously believes that Is
the most effective way to serve his
country and generation. This is the
moat numerous class. There is another
class of men who are possessed and
controlled by insatiable ambition. Their
compass may appear to be unsteady, but
if you watch, it points unerringly in
one direction, that of their own personal advancement. This is a very
small class. Then there is the third
class, men who do not despise honorable
positions, who are anxious to attain
and are proud when they succeed in
reaching them, but whose principles
are inflexible and who, whenever there
is any variance between personal advancement and devotion to principle,
would have no hesitation in pursuing
the course indicated by principle."

jj-TOiment;, ���
Denver, Colo., Oct. 22.���Leaving a
note identifying himself and declaring
himself fearful that it would be but a
matter of a short time until he would become dependent on charity, George Hubert Williams, of Marysville, Cal., is
today a suicide, having taken his life at
the Elks hotel.   In the note he said:
"I have drifted into dreary midd
���age, poverty stricken and friendless,
and I view with alarm the prospects of a
dependent old age."
Williams also left a bundle of manuscript which indulged in philosophical
flings at various phases of life. One
said:
"In comparing religions, I have come
to the conclusion that the basis for religion is superstition."
Another says:
"Those who haven't the patience to
fully pursue the mazes of metaphysics
nor the intelligence to reach at lengths
in trying to understand speculative
science, cannot and will not find God."
A third and fourth manuscript remarked:
"Morality is now understood to mean
adherence to custom on the matter of
intercourse between the sexes.
"Love is undeniable. Marriage as at
present instituted will remain as long
as it is needed for economic. reasons.
When that day goes, there will supervene some other form of union between
the sexes."

HAS SILVER LINING
Big  Fire a  Blessing  in  Disguise  in
"ome Respects
Beaudette, Minn., Oct. 22.���Beaudette
and Spooner already see a silverlin-
ing to their cloud of gloom, and it is
this which stimulates them to bear
their losses and crosses so patiently
and cheerfully. They are saying now
that if it had not been for the dreadful loss of life, the forest fire would
eventually prove a blessing. The towns
will be rebuilt on a greater and more
substantial basis and the clearing of
the forest will greatly lessen the pioneer
work of the homesteaders.
Mayor Moody, of Warroad, who has
lived along the border for twenty-five
years, declares that the fire has been
worth more than $200,000 to the settlers
within a radius of fifteen miles of War-
road and that the development of the
country has been advanced fully a
score of years.
That the destruction of timber, much
of it of little value, will ease the work
of homesteaders in clearing their claims,
is duly appreciated in the two cities of
the Beaudette river, but with their
property all gone and twenty-five blackened corpses in their little cemetery, they
are not jubilant. They are only hopeful
that the adage "it is an ill wind that
blows nobody good," may be true in
this case. All the merchants as far as
can be learned, intend to remain here
and to go into business.

Phos-a 9 LIMITED
Fulton St and 3rd An.
Wants City to Hand Out Plenty of
Blank Application Forms to Local
N. P.'s to Relieve Congestion of
Applicants at City Hall.
Aid. Hilditch is troubled over the
time wasted for applicants for the franchise at the City Hall this week by the
necessity for each man's taking his turn,
owing to the impossibility of the city
clerk's being able to attend to the
numerous applicants at anything like
the speed they keep coming in.
Aid. Hilditch asked if the city was
prepared to supply blank forms of application to the notary publics and other
agents who had been relieving the
pressure at the City Hall, by dealing
with the applications at other points
n the city.
Mayor Stork stated that the supply
of these forms had been stopped on
account of an error discovered in one
of them as Med up by a notary public
which amounted to a pretty serious
breach of the conditions regarding
applications. It appears that the application had been dated "29th October,"
and the applicant had stated that he
had paid the necessary taxes while, as
a matter of fact, the intention of the
errer in the date was apparently to give
the applicant time to pay these taxes.
Aid. Hilditch argued that this was no
reason why the city clerk should not
receive the applications right or wrong,
and no reason why the supply of forms
should be stopped.
The Mayor said that he was anxious
to give everybody possible a chance to
get on the roll, but he thought the city
was right in not allowing the forms to
go out if they were not to be correctly
filled up.
Aid. Hilditch persisted in his contention that the city ought to continue the
supply of blanks and the Mayor said
that provided they were to be correctly
filled up the blank forms would be forthcoming. It would not take long to print
them if the supply was short.
Aid. Mobley was surprised that any
notary public in this city should apparently stoop to anything in the nature
of a deliberatley erroneous filling up
of the blank form to suit any applicant's
convenience. The notary public was
entitled to a fee for filling up these
forms he pointed out, while the justice
of the peace was not. The applicants
could avail themselves of the serivces
of the notary public or the justice of the
peace as they chose, or go to the City
Hall.
Aid. Hilditch was inclined to the
opinion that ,he error in the form
referred to was by no means a deliberate
one, but purely a clerical error.
There was some further discussion
on the matter of the property owning
voters' qualifications, and Aid. Hilditch
argued that a man owning property
assessed at below $100 in value was not
qualified to vote as a property owner,
and that many might lose the franchise
through misunderstanding this. He
thought this a question to be settled
that very night.
Aid. Pattullo thought differently, and
said that the law stood clear for all
voters and applicants for the franchise.
Aid. Hilditch thought the council
ought to make all matters of this kind
clear to the citizens, and argued a little
with Aid. Pattullo in direct conversation
across the table on the matter of the
actual property qualification.
He said that his definition of real
property and Aid. Pattullo's differed.
Aid.  Pattullo said that was probably
the case but he would not go into an
argument about it as Aid. Hilditch's
way of arguing was peculiar. Aid.
Hilditch said he would return the compliment, and Aid. Pattullo then addressing the Mayor said he regretted
that this form of discussion was becoming
a little frequent in the council.
The matter ended in a decision by
the Mayor to have the question of
voters' qualifications gone into by the
city solicitor and a statement made
regarding it by him.

umbia to be held in Vancouver
The Mayor thought it was' desirahl.
that the city should be represented b
one or more delegates. '
Aid. Barrow believed it would be
almost necessary as the approval of thk
union was practically essential in refer
ence to municipal matters in the provin��
that came up before the House at
Victoria.
Aid. Mobley was suggested as .
specially suitable delegate, but he wai
himself anxious to emphasize the need
for choosing as a delegate a member ol
the council whose interests in attending
the meeting of this union were purelj
the business interests of the city. He
did not desire to be sent as delegate
because he happened to have friendi
and relations in the district where the
meeting was to be held.
The matter was allowed to stand ov��
until Thursday evening.
