POLITICAL  PROPHETS   PREDICT
OUTBREAK
Suffrage Demonstration* and Moabit
DUordera Show Such Radical Strength a�� to Create Alarm Among
Monirchists.
Berlin, Oct.- 22 ���There is a growing
impression throughout Germany that
lut winter's Prussian suffrage demonstrations and the more recent disorders
in the Moabit quarter, are preliminaries
to a real revolution. Though public
men fear to be quoted on such matters,
privately they make no effort to conceal
their real views.
The suffrage demonstrations and the
Moabit disorders are believed to have
been mere tests cf the Radical's physical
strength. From the standpoint of the
Monarchists they were alarming tests.
It was with the utmost difficulty that
the authorities suppressed them and the
opinion is that perhaps they would not
have been suppressed at all had not the
"unseen leaders" decided evidently that
the time was not ripe for a widespread
revolt and when they saw enough "called
off their dogs."
Political prophets predict the next
outbreak will occur in the coming winter, when a fierce Socialistic attack will
begin in the reichstag upon the Kaiser
on account of his claims to rulership by
divine right, with simultaneous demonstration* and street, fighting in the
centre of Berlin.

Mischievous Boys Closely Watched
by the Police and Quickly Brought
Before the Magistrate Where They
Learn a Sharp Leaaon in Behavior.
A case of considerable importance to
the boys of Prince Rupert came before
Magistrate Carss this afternoon. In
terms of the Juvenile Offenders Act the
proceedings were not public, but as a
warning to other boys who may be get*
ting into mischief Chief McCarvell
wishes the following facts emphasized:
The four boys implicated, were charged
with having broken into a cabin and
stolen a sum of money, a gold pin, and
various other less valuable articles.
The occurrence took place on Friday
morning. It waa reported to Chief
McCarvell at half past ten, and within
an hour Constables McArthur and
Mansell had found and apprehended the
boys.
The fact that boys who commit
serious offences of this kind, or who do
mischief, are sharply looked after by
the police, and will be speedily caught
and punished, is the one thing which
cannot be too well known to Prince
Rupert's boys.
The four youngsters who appeared
before Magistrate Carss this afternoon
received such a lesson by their experience that they will not get into
mischief again in a hurry.

WOODWORTH LAKE
WATER SUPPLY
WORK  OF  SURVEY  PARTY  ALL
BUT COMPLETED
Final Stages of Survey for the Conduit Are Being Engaged in on Kaien
Ialand. A. W. Agnew, Engineer in
Charge, Expect* to Return Shortly.
HAS ARRIVED
ON THE COAST
PRINCE FERDINAND OF PORTUGAL IN AMERICA
Arrived at New York Before Revolution Broke Out on Hit Way to the
Orient���Is Uncle 'of Deposed Monarch Manuel.
The arduous labors of the survey
party which has been engaged under A.
W. Agnew during the summer months,
in preparing and planning for . the
Woodworth Lake water supply for the
city of Prince Rupert as it will be when
the railway gets through, are nearing
completion.
After going over the district surrounding the lake, and surveying it
thoroughly making calculations of the
watersheds available and preparing for
the construction of the barrage, sluices,
and intake at the lake itself, the engineers have more recently been working
on the survey for the conduit to carry
the water into the city and having
taken the line of it from the lake to the
harbor level and across to Kaien Island,
are now completing their work in the
island itself.
As the surveying work was in progress
A. V,'. Agnew has kept abreast with
the calculations and planning dependent
from time to time on the results of the
field work of the survey party in his
charge, and on his return to the city
he will have already planned and
partly calculated the general scheme
of the complete work. A certain amount
of indoor work remains for the engineer
in charge, however, and for this he is
now finishing his calculations on the
field.
The survey for the Woodworth lake
water supply has not been accomplished
without considerable and often perilous
work. Probably Prince Rupert's coming
big population to be benefitted by the
abundant water supply provided for
by the Woodworth Lake scheme, will
never properly realize how much foresight, planning, and actual hard physical toil its accomplishment necessitated.
We know of a few of the risks that
were run by the surveyors, but many
narrow shaves that ended happily for
the adventurous ones, and were laughed
at afterwards, are taken for granted
in the' day's work of the engineer and
surveyor in British Columbia.
Everyone knows how A. W. Agnew
came within an ace of losing his lfe
in the heroic efforts he made to save the
lives of two members of his party in
the canoe accident on Shawatlan's
Lake. But even more recently* the
engineer in charge had a very narrow
escape while the party, roped together,
were engaged on a survey section high
on a craggy ridge of the mountain.
Agnew had freed himself from the
rope to attend to his end of the job
more conveniently, and as the party
were crossing a steep and ugly place
tha rock crumbled beneath his foot and
he was precipitated down the slide
amidst a small avalanche of jagged
rocks.
Half way down he brought up with a
jerk agains a bush, regained his feet
cautiously, and scrambled up again to
the brow of the ledge scratched and
bruised but cool and smiling.
There was only a sheer drop of about
sixty or a hundred feet into a cleft well
lined with jagged edged rocks a few feet
beyond the bush that held him. But
what bothered Agnew was chiefly the
nasty way the thomy bush had treated
his hands!
"It took me quite a while to get the
thorns out afterwards," he remarked.
San Francisco, Cal., Oct. 22.���Prince
Ferdinand, brother of Portugal's exiled
Queen Mother and uncle of the deposed King Manuel, is in San Francisco
seeing the sights of the city. Tuesday,
it is said, he will sail for the Orient
on the steamer Mongolia, where he expects to do some scientific investigating
and surveying.
Prince Ferdinand, who arrived from
New York, declined to talk about
events in Portugal. He said he was in
New York when the revolution broke
out, and he did not feel like making a
statement on Portuguese affairs. The
prince is travelling under the name of
M. Villiers.

NEW LOT OF
LIGHT POLES
HAS ARRIVED FOR CITY LIGHT
PLANT
Work Not Yet Commenced on Erec*
tion of Pole Line, but Will Not be
Long Now. Boilers Being Conveyed
on Last Laps of Their Journey.
Those whose interests or occupations
take them around Prince Rupert's
plank paths by night, nowadays, have
been blessing the moon when that fickle
lady orb was at the full of late. For,
though energetic efforts are always
steadily in progress towards the completion of theNiew city electric light
plant, we are still a good ways from
lighted streets.
The nights���especially the cloudy
and stormy ones when light would be
most appreciated, are getting darker
as the year advances, and the citizens
who sally forth upon their evening
errands have still to play the firefly or
glow-worm game with lanterns.
Now the combination of a hurricane,
lantern, and an umbrella when the wind
blows a bit, is bad for the masculine
vocabulary, consequently the announcement that the first consignment of poles
for the electric lighting of the streets has
arrived, is welcomed. The poles are
at the Westholme Lumber company's
wharf today.
The process of conveying the boilers
over to their position on the site from
Cameron's bay is now in progress, and
work is being carried on in preparation
of the site for them. Much of the
machinery is already in Prince Rupert,
but until a substantial machine house
is erected to receive it, it will remain in
storage. The work is being pushed on
rapidly.
Twin Cities To Unite
Fort William, Oct. 20.���At a banquet last night attended by leading
business men the two cities of Port
Arthur and Fort William decided to
work harmoniously for union. The
united city' would have a population
of 50,000 and would make one of the
largest shipping ports on the continent.
St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 22.���All American
records have gone by the boards and
international records are seriously threatened by four balloons that sailed away
from St. Louis Monday afternoon still
up, according to last reports received
at the headquarters of the Aero Club
of America here today. Somewhere
above the Canadian forests the four
balloons still unheard from are supposed to be heading in a straight line
toward Hudson Bay. They are the
America II (United States), Helvetia
(Switzerland), Azeruia (Switzerland), and
the Dusseldorff II (Germany).
According to the last reports from
any of the four racers which was received yesterday the American balloon
was in the lead five miles ahead of the
Dusseldorff, which in turn led the
Hamburg III by five miles.
Word reached here that the Hamburg
III had dropped 1,800 feet into Lake
Nipissing, Ontario, and that Vogt and
aide Assman had been rescued from
an island where they had spent the
night. Assman's arm was broken and
he is being cared for by Cherokee
Indians, who rescured the aeronauts.
Nearly worn out by the exposure,
Vogt made his way to Pamassan, on
the Grand Trunk railway, and filed the
following report:
"Balloon dropped sheer 1,800 feet
lake Nipissing. Assman's arm broken.
Balloon saved."
Despatches to friends here gave more
complete details of the flight, which is
considered one of the most brilliant
ever recorded.
"There was water, water everywhere," said Vogt's messages. "First
we tried to land at 9 a.m. on Tuesday,
but a tricky air current swept us off
Georgian bay just as we had thrown
out most of our ballast.
"Then we tried to land with the drag
rope but failed. At 11 o'clock last
night our plight became desperate.
We had no ballast, did not know where
we were and had been in the air more
than 28 hours. It was pitch dark and
we decided to take a chance. We ripped open the gas bag and dropped with
froghtful velocity to earth, which was
much farther away than we had calculated. We landed in the lake, which
was lucky, for had we struck on land
we would both have been killed.
"We floundered about in the water
for two hours, finally being washed to
a small unhabitated island in the centre of the lake. There we spent the
night and this morning were taken off
by two Indian hunters whom we hailed
from the mainland.
"At times during our trip we sailed
along at the rate of 60 miles an hour."
The Hamburg III made the best record of any of the balloons so far heard
from. It travelled 775 miles, 50 milea
farther than the Germania, which came
down yesterday at Pogamasing, Ontario.
The Isle De France landed within a
short distance of the Germania. The
Million Population of St. Louis made
the poorest showing, traveling only 317
miles before alighting at Racine, Wis.

"Is there anyone here who can use
this, and use it good?" he asked. A
husky stalwart volunteered, and swung
up the heavy hammer ready to bring
down a shattering blow on the rock. The
Professor lay like a dead man.
"Wait," cried Archer.' "How many
blows shall be struck?"
"Not any, please!"' the shrill voice
of a woman cried from the audience,
but other voices shouted "One!" "Two!"
and "Four."
"Four then!" said Archer, and the
hammer came down with a crash on the
stone. Once,. twice, thrice it fell, and
the splintered rock flew. The professor
lay still and rigid, unheeding.
The fourth blow came down like a
steam hammer and the rock crumbled
to fragments beneath it. Quickly the
inert "subject" was raised to his feet.
A few more passes and the words "All
right!" and there stood Professor Hoyle
smilingly himself again with the crumbled rock broken upon his body lying
at his feet.
He shook hands with his opponent,
Archer, who thereupon agreed to summit himself tonight to the Professor's
influence for further experiments in
the science they both study.
A series of amusing hypnotic "suggestion" exhibitions followed under Professor Hoyle's control, and the large
audience dispersed intensely mystified
and well satisfied.

NEW LOT OF
LIGHT POLES
HAS ARRIVED  FOR CITY LIGHT
PLANT
Work Not Yet Commenced on Erection of Pole Line, but Will Not be
Long Now. Boilers Being Conveyed
on Last Lap* of Their Journey.
Those whose interests or occupations
take them around Prince Rupert's
plank paths by night, nowadays, have
been blessing the moon when that fickle
lady orb was at the full of late. For,
though energetic efforts are always
steadily in progress towards the completion of theNiew city electric light
plant, we are still a good ways from
lighted streets.
The nights���especially the cloudy
and stormy ones when light would be
most appreciated, are getting darker
as the year advances, and the citizens
who sally forth upon their evening
errands have still to play the firefly or
glow-worm game with lanterns.
Now the combination of a hurricane,
lantern, and an umbrella when the wind
blows a bit, is bad for the masculine
vocabulary, consequently the announcement that the first consignment of poles
for the electric lighting of the streets has
arrived, is welcomed. The poles are
at the Westholme Lumber company's
wharf today.
The process of conveying the boilers
over fo their position on the site from
Cameron's bay is now in progress, and
work is being carried on in preparation
of the site for them. Much of the
machinery is already in Prince Rupert,
but until a substantial machine house
is erected to receive it, it will remain in
storage. The work is being pushed on
rapidly.
Twin Cities To Unite
Fort William, Oct. 20.���At a banquet last night attended by leading
business men the two cities of Port
Arthur and Fort William decided to
work harmoniously for union. The
united city' would have a population
of 50,000 and would make one of the
largest shipping ports on the continent.
St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 22.���All American
records have gone by the boards and
international records are seriously threatened by four balloons that sailed away
from St. Louis Monday afternoon still
up, according to last reports received
at the headquarters of the Aero Club
of America here today. Somewhere
above the Canadian forests the four
balloons still unheard from are supposed to be heading in a straight line
toward Hudson Bay. They are the
America II (United States), Helvetia
(Switzerland), Azeruia (Switzerland), and
the Dusseldorff II (Germany).
According to the last reports from
any of the four racers which was received yesterday the American balloon
was in the lead five miles ahead of the
Dusseldorff, which in turn led the
Hamburg III by five miles.
Word reached here that the Hamburg
III had dropped 1,800 feet into Lake
Nipissing, Ontario, and that Vogt and
aide Assman had been rescued from
an island where they had spent the
night. Assman's arm was broken and
he is being cared for by Cherokee
Indians, who rescured the aeronauts.
Nearly worn out by the exposure,
Vogt made his way to Pamassan, on
the Grand Trunk railway, and filed the
following report:
"Balloon dropped sheer 1,800 feet
lake Nipissing. Assman's arm broken.
Balloon saved."
Despatches to friends here gave more
complete details of the flight, which is
considered one of the most brilliant
ever recorded.
"There was water, water everywhere," said Vogt's messages. "First
we tried to land at 9 a.m. on Tuesday,
but a tricky air current swept us off
Georgian bay just as we had thrown
out most of our ballast.
"Then we tried to land with the drag
rope but failed. At 11 o'clock last
night our plight became desparate.
We had no ballast, did not know where
we were and had been in the air more
than 28 hours. It was pitch dark and
we decided to take a chance. We ripped open the gas bag and dropped with
froghtful velocity to earth, which was
much farther away than we had calculated. We landed in the lake, which
was lucky, for had we struck on land
we would both have been killed.
"We floundered about in the water
for two hours, finally being washed to
a small unhabitated island in the centre of the lake. There we spent the
night and this morning were taken off
by two Indian hunters whom we hailed
from the mainland.
"At times during our trip we sailed
along at the rate of 60 miles an hour."
The Hamburg III made the beet record of any of the balloons so far heard
from. It travelled 775 miles, 50 miles
farther than the Germania, which came
down yesterday at Pogamasing, Ontario.
The Isle De France landed within a
short distance of the Germania. The
Million Population of St. Louis made
the poorest showing, traveling only 317
miles before alighting at Racine, Wis.
To love abundantly, is to live abundantly, and to love forever iB to live forever.���Henry Drummond.
Work is still in progress on the placing
of the new hydrants for the purpose of
fire protection. The city engineer
expects that it will be completed shortly.

The Cat and the Princeling
Loyalty manifests itself in curious
directions. A lady once expressed her
appreciation of the Royal House by
naming a kitten after the Prince of
Wales. When this erratic animal disappeared at night, as cats are liable to
do, it was very instructive to hear the
shrill voice of its owner in vigorous
admonition, "Edward Albert Christian
George Patrick Andrew David, come in
at once when I'm a-callin' of yer! Oh,
I'll give yer such a wunner in a minute,
I will, upon my word!" And then, in
hoarse tones, the royal mews would be
heard in response.
The Latest in Stormy Petrols
Big ships insure the nation's peace,
So every one agrees;
So motor men-of-war should act
Like 012 on troubled seas.
Ghost Messages
When the famous William James quit
this world and all its games, for the
country where in time we all must flit, he
assured us that he'd send word of some
kind to a friend, if the rules and regulations would permit. People say that
he has tried to converse from t'other
side, but the wires in bad condition
seem to be; he no sooner makes a start
than connections fall apart, and the
only thing we've heard is "Hully Chee!"
If he does arrange to talk you can bet a
pound of chalk that the message will be
silly and absurd; for the ghosts will
never tell of the regions where they
dwell, never send to eager ears a helpful
word. Men whose thoughts had sterling
worth when they lived upon the earth
seem to deal in empty twaddle when
they're dead; and the words they send
us back seem to indicate a crack in the
thinking part of every spectre's head.
Men whose words were spiced with wit
ere this weary world they quit are as
dull as circus barkers when they die;
and they send no dreary dope from the
shining starry slope, and I often scratch
my head and wonder why. If a ghost
had any sense it would know that we're
intense in our longing for some knowledge
of that shore, where we find the journey's
end���but the spirits only send stale
remarks that jar our souls and make us
sore.���Wall Mason.

See Ball of Fire in Sky
Portland, Ore., Oct. 21.���Hundreds
of people in this city last night were
attracted by a ball of fire, apparently
as large as an electric arc, in the southeastern sky. The object appeared to
have a short tail, which extended
perpendicularly d��wn from it. It was
first noticed about 7: 30 p.m., growing
in brilliancy until 8:16, when it began
gradually to fade, disappearing entirely
about 10 o'clock.
Joyous Christmas Stuff
"What are you getting up for your

"Some great stuff," said the magazine editor. "We will have an article

something on the isolation of typhoid
germs and n red-blood expose of the way
our axle grease is being adulterated."
The Making of a Boss
"Your enemies are calling you a

"Yes," replied Senator Sorghum.

have to make good my right to the

COAST POINTS AND THE FUTURE
The great kindnesses of the future are to fall upon Vancouver, Prince Rupert,
Victoria, and probably Winnipeg, writes Britton B. Cooke in summing up an article
in the Toronto Star Weekly on present and future conditions which affect industrial
conditions in Canada. Winnipeg may yet become a manufacturer, and certainly
will become a meat-packer, if the Hudson's Bay route proves feasible. But the
other three are certain of their reward, in waiting all these years. It is Prince Rupert
and not Portland (Maine) that the Eastern Canadian should fear may gobble the
terminal traffic of the G. T. P. It may take longer to ship from the Pacific coast,
but if the rates are cheaper that will make little difference. The great blue funnel
freighters steam heavily out of Vancouver and Victoria. They will sail more
frequently when the mountain haul becomes subject to competition, and they wil
not return empty, but with, raw materials or finished goods, to be handled by the
enterprise and the capital of British Columbia. The record of those imports will
be upon the books of Western Customs offices, and sadly missing in the annual
report of the Montreal Board of Trade.
Climatically, geographically and, perhaps, in natural resources the West
Coast is undoubtedly the superior of the East, and in the matter of fisheries the
new transcontinental line is bound to become an impo tant factor in reducing
the evils o American fish poachers on the Pacific. For, by the easy gradients
of the G. T. P., and with the completion of the refrigerating facilities that are
already being built in Prince Rupert, the Seattle poachers must find Prince Rupert
a better shipping point than Sea tie. They will save in the long sea run to Seattle
as well as in freight costs. It is even now being foretold of Prince Rupert that
the fishing industry of the coast will some day support within its gates a population
of from 20,000 to 30,000.
A NEWSPAPER'S DUTY
One of the functions of a newspaper is to disseminate the news of the day
tree from all color or bias. Few newspapers live up to this ideal. A newspaper
which deliberately misrepresents a condition of fact for monetary or selfish reasons
is a menace to the community.
A newspaper, while a business proposition, nevertheless owes a special duty
to the public. It may be said to be a semi-public institution with responsibilities
which cannot be shirked. A newspaper may editorially draw what conclusions
it may please in the public interest but the public is entitled to the absolute bare
facts in order to draw its own conclusions.
A newspaper should endeavor to direct but it has no right to dictate.
It is the duty of the newspaper to strive to create a healthy public sentiment
always looking to the welfare of the whole body politic rather than to the pockets
of a few individuals. Not only is this course eminently in the public interest, but
it is good business. Honesty is the best policy is as true today as it was the first
time we essayed to legibly write it in our copy books.

The only thing worse than a subsidised press is a press that wants to be subsidised.
Three quarters of a million in buildings in fifteen months is a pretty good

A correspondent sends ua a definition of a skunk. He says that a skunk is a

The city of Prince Rupert is founded upon a rock. The resources behind

of such wonderful promise and with everything to justify a spirit of optimism.
Littleness of spirit must be left to the little of mind. Be big, broad and generous. Rejoice at the success of your neighbor and appreciate that good will to
man is as essential to happiness today as it was two thousand years ago.

ROLLING STOCK ARRIVES
And Wharf at Stewart Looks Mighty
Brisk and Busy Now
Rain is rain whether it is here or in Vancouver, and wind is wind whether it
is wind in Prince Rupert or in Victoria. Because we have had a few days of rain
and a little wind, don't forget the beautiful summer which we have had without
either.
Read The   Optimist
Word was received last night by Messrs
S. Harrison & Co., of Second avenue,
that the rolling stock had arrived at
Stewart.
"It looks like business," writes Messrs.
Harrison's manager at their Stewart
department, "to see the large engine
busily puffing around at the wharf."
Very lively interest is shown in all
quarters in the Stewart mining properties and stock, and in the development
of the town.
The snow has not yet reached the level
of the townsite, but is coming down on
the surrounding mountains.

RICH ORE FROM
ATLIN DISTRICT
RUNS THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS
TO THE TON
Cornea From the Gleaner Claims,
Staked Many Years Ago But Became Tied Up in Litigation Just as
the Adjoining Engineer Group.
Vancouver, Oct. 22.���Seventy-five
sacks of some of the richest gold quartz
that ever came out of the North arrived
in Vancouver on the steamer Princess
Royal yesterday, being a specimen
from the Gleaner Milling and Mining
company of the Atlin district. The
rich ore runs into thousands of dollars
to the ton, and is one of the same character as that of the Engineer property
on Taku arm. The Gleaner claims lie
up on the mountain side. The work
done consists of a 100-foot tunnel that
has been driven to intercept the ore
body disclosed, on the surface. There
are several open cuts on the claims, and
Mr. M. H. McKay, of Victoria, one of
the directors of the company, who
reached Vancouver this morning on the
steamer Camosun, declares that a. large
ore body has been demonstrated.
The company was organized about
ten years ago, but the money raised
was soon expended in the tunnel, and
only recently was work resumed, following the boom in quartz prospecting
in the Atlin district.
Other properties working in the district are the Engineer group, the Big
Horn, the Partridge, a Dawson-owned
property and claims owned by Hon.
Dr. Young, provincial secretary. The
ore. being taken out of these claims
is a fine quality of quartz, carrying
free gold, and some of the samples
shown by Mr. McKay show the quartz
seamed with the yellow metal. The
only machinery at work is a two-stamp
mill on the Engineer.
INLANDER HEARD FROM
Port Simpson Got in This Afternoon
After a Tough Trip
The Inlander reached Kitsumkalum at
seven o'clock this morning and later
in the day was able to send a telegraph,
the wires having been repaired to that
point. She will go to Port Essington
this trip and not come to Prince Rupert.
Freight and passengers can make connections with her by leaving here on
the Chieftain at three o'clock tomorrow
afternoon.
The Port Simpson arrived from Hazelton shortly after noon today, after a
tough trip owing to the low stage of
water. It was said to have fallen two
inches yesterday, and from the statements of the four passengers there does
not seem to have been any great amount
of rain in the interior, not enough at
any rate to offset the frost in the headwaters of the tributaries. Snow is
falling and nearly all the hilltops are
already white.

upon the strict adherence to the law.
If people's feelings continue to be outj
raged in this fashion they will soon rise
up and say, 'We don't need to stand
this.'"
Thus unmistakably last night in the
Empress theatre, Rev. F. W. Kerr, the
young pastor of the First Presbyterian
church expressed his views on the ques- ���
tion of Local Option.
"Views differ," he said, "men of equal
intelligence and moral calibre differ
point blank in regard to the liquor
question. We must be all united together in a holy crusade against immoderate drinking, and in a determined
effort to live down the treating system."
"It has been agreed that Local
Option has not been a success," said
Rev. Mr. Kerr in another strong 'sentence. "I ask you has the licensing
system been a success? Manifestly
No, I say, owing to the number of
drunkards seen on the city streets.
But it can be shown that in certain
cases Local Option has been a very
great success indeed."
The pastor spoke of the various
methods of dealing with the liqour
question such as the Gothenburg system
of which in principle he approves, and
of other systems.
"There is no fear," he said, "that had
we Local Option here we should go back
to the evil regime of the 'blind pigs.'
"Men of the City Council," he concluded. "We trust you to lay deep the
foundations of justice, happiness, and
sobriety in the city of Prince Rupert."
A large audience listened with interest
to the Rev. Mr. Kerr's address, and at
times broke into applause at the outspoken expression of his views.
They Know the Dangers
It is distressing to learn that on
the eve of the assembling of the Dominion Parliament, Ottawa city water
has been declared to be unsafe. Nobody, but the members themselves,
know the dangers to which they are
exposed during a long session on the
banks of the Rideau.
Looking Up Hotel Sites
A. Cheshire Mitchell, representative
of the Hotel Washington Annex, Seattle,
is a passenger on the Prince George this
evening. He came up on the Prince
Rupert to look over the situation particularly in regard to hotel sites. He
was impressed with the city and says
he will return next spring with the view
of purchasing a location.
Great Field For Labor
Sir Robert Perks, who spent six
weeks in Canada in connection with
the new drydock at Quebec and the
Georgian Bay canal, stated before leaving that the canal from the Great
Lakes to the St. Lawrence will, when
staited, give employment for eight or
ten years directly or indirectly to 15,-
000 skilled and unskilled workmen.
Truth needs no policies, nor stratagems
nor licensings to make her victorious;
those are the shifts and defenses that
error uses against her power.���Milton.

Largest Railway Trestle
What is said to be the longest railroad trestle in the world over navigable waters, runs over Albermarle
sound from Edmonton, N. C. to Mack-
ey's Ferry, N. C. It has a length of
28,000 feet, and gives passage to the
Norfolk and Southern railroad's traffic,
formerly ferried across.
Some 4,000,000 feet of lumber was
used in the construction of this trestle
1,000 cars of piles, 250 cars of steel,
and a train load of spikes and bolts.
The spikes were all in excess of 70
feet, the longest being 95 feet. These
were driven from 40 to 60 feet into
the bed of the sound. At high tide
the track is about 12 feet above the
water. Two draws allow for the passage
of vessels. THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST

HOME RULE;
OR DEVOLUTION
REDMOND REPUDIATES CERTAIN
STATEMENTS
General Views of Irish Members Upon Birrel's Scheme of "Home Rule
All Round"���Redmond's Speeches
in United States.
London, Oct. 20.���The Lloyd-George-
Birrell scheme of "home rule all round,"
in other words, the subordinate parliaments for the British islands���was
reported by the Press to have gained
another adherent���Mr. John Redmond,
leader of the Irish-Nationalist party.
Certain speeches made by Mr. John
Redmond in America are quoted in
proof of the Press assertions.
Mr. Redmond, however, has just
cabled to the headquarters of the
United States Irish league in Dublin
declaring that he favors no scheme of
general devolution of power. The
Irish leader could hardly do otherwise,
for when Mr. Birrell, in 1907.' introduced his Devolution bill for Ireland
(called by its enemies a "Devil-ution
bill") Mr. Redmond in the Dublin
Mansion, house declared his opposition
to the scheme.
Mr. William O'Brien now comes forward to declare that Mr. Redmond's
repudiation is refuted by the fact that
Mr. T. P. O'Connor in Canada on the
very same day uttered the same declaration as that attributed to Mr. Redmond.
Mr. O'Brien is, of course, the leader
of the Independent Nationalists, who
aie a thorn in the aide of the official
party both in and out of parliament.
What Mr. T. P. O'Connor has to say
on the subject, therefore, would be listened to with great attention in Irish-
Nationalist circles.
MARRIRD EIGHT MEN
One   of Husbands Has Her Arrested
For Bigamy
Chicago, Oct. 20.���Mrs. Alice Goodwin, said by the Chicago police to have
eight husbands, was arrested at Med-
ford, Okla., yesterday. She will be returned to Chicago to face her trial on a
charge of bigamy made by J. F. Young,
one of her husbands.
Police Sergeant Jacob Kuebler, who
made an investigation of Mrs. Goodwin's
career, has discovered the following four
men who have been mariied to Mrs.
Goodwin: J. Ekle, Dayton, O.; J. W.
Graham, Toledo, O.; Hugh Hoskins,
Conway, Kas., and James F. Young,
Chicago.
In addition to these, Sergeant Kuebler
says he has found evidence of three or
tour other alleged bigamous marriages,
in which Mrs. Goodwin is charged with
having been a principal in the last two
years.
The Shrinkage in Bourassa
When Henri Bourassa was in the House
of Commons he had the guise of a coming
LaFontaine. There were those who
prophesied that, with his distinction of
presence and his gift of speech in two
languages, he would be the Laurier of
twenty years later and would take up
the great task of unifying Canada where
that statesman left off. But his passion
for the center of the stage led bim to
say anything that would make him
talked about. He wanted to be everything all at once. He did not understand
that silence was three-quarters of the
battle. And so it happened that Henri
Bourassa was thrust out of the larger
arena with nothing but a vexing record
as, an enfant terrible. Since he found
himself called to a smaller field he has
not added to his reputation as a Nationalist. What could be narrower, shorter
sighted, more reactionary, than his
appeal to French-Canadians to boycott
English banks? It is a great pity that
the makings of a heroic figure should
whittle down so small.���Canadian Col-

was proceeding from Lochmaree to
Letterewe for a ghillies' ball. A piper
was on board. The piper skirled the
pipes as he passed Ben Airdh, and
out flew a golden eagle from his eyrie.
As long as the music continued the eagle
remained within earshot of the boat.
The piper having earned his dram, the
music ceased. Immediately the bird
began to fly shoreward. As soon as the
piper recommenced the eagle left his
