That may be so, but if genuine enthusiasm is any guarantee of popularity
G. W. Morrow is not only popular now,

Paris, Oct. 26.���In the Chamber of
Deputies last night, after the government had been hotly attacked by the
Socialists for having interferred with the
strike and brought it to an end disastrous to the strikers, Premier Briand
disclosed a plot that had been entered
into by anarchists to ruin the country.
This disclosure made a profound
sensation for the moment, which was
broken by the interpolations of the
Socialists and their demands for further
proof. This was forthcoming. by the
premier's production of confessions made
by the strike leaders that they had been
working in affiliation with the anarchists.
A great disturbance followed, several
members of the Left coming to blows.
Prefect of Police Lepine was attacked so
savagely that his friends hurried him
from the chamber.
Presented to British Army
London, Oct. 26.���The dirigible balloon Morning Post crossed from Mois-
sons, France, to Aldershot this morning,
in five hours. It came down with ease
right on the  parade   ground   and   is
used as one of the most successful
Hights yet made. The newspaper proprietor afterward presented the balloon

Evening" was proposed by G. R. T.
Sawle. In terms of the greatest good
will and esteem he referred to his late
partner's excellent business qualities, and
further to his sterling character as a
friend.
To know a man, Mr. Sawle said,
one must either live with or be in
business with him. He could say that
he knew Mr. Morrow well, and it was a
privilege to have been in business with
him. "Mr. Morrow's confidence in me,"
he said, "is one of the greatest compliment ever paid me." He felt that
G. W. Morrow is to-day the most
influential man in Prince Rupert.
G. W. Morrow's Reply
A storm of cheering greeted the close
business ability  and  strong character, of Mr. Sawle's remarks and was renewed
i City,
courage and great generosity. "No man"
he said, "has given more to charitable
causes in the city than G. W. Morrow.
While business men might differ on
many points," said Mr. Law, "everyone
admired and respected a character like
G. W. Morrow's."
Wm. Manson, M.P.P.
Geo. B. Tite was appointed toast-
master, and the first toast that of
"British Columbia" was proposed by
A. Carss and responded to by Wm.
Manson M. P. P. Mr. Cares very
briefly proposed the toast in a neat
little speech saying modestly, that as
he was comparatively youug to the
province he would leave its praises to
Mr. Manson.
Mr. Manson, who was greeted with
cheers spoke in glowing terms of the
noble prospects of the province with
which all present were proud to be
associated. There were representatives
of the eastern provinces there, some
from their neighboring republic, some
from over the Atlantic and some even
from Bruce County! After describing
the rich resources of British Columbia,
Mr. Manson said that he was sure there
could be no difference regarding the
government at which a smile rippled
round the audience. He spoke of Mr.
Morrow's great share in the work of
advancing the province, saying he was
one of the most energetic, and public
spirited men he had ever known, and
regretted the removal of Mr. Morrow
and his family to Vancouver.
To the Evening's Guest
The  toast  of  "The  Guest  of  the
with intensity as Mr. Morrow rose to
reply. After expressing in sincere and
cordial terms his appreciation of the
honor done him, Mr. Morrow said he
would treasure the address given him
with one he had received on leaving
Port Essington, and hand them down
to posterity.
He explained that in consideration of
the needs of his wife and family he had
to go to Vancouver, and said that
while his successful pursuits were well
known to many, there were unsuccessful
ones too known to Mrs. Morrow.
He held out the distant prospect of a
return some day with his family to reside
again in Prince Rupert, and sincerely
hoped he would live to see the city with
not 6000, but 100,000 inhabitants. (Hear!
Hear!).
The G. T. P. Position
Referring to the situation in regard to
the G. T. P. and the city Mr. Morrow
was emphatic on the line that the
city needed the G. T. P. co-operation
and the G. T. P. needed the city. He
thought it high time that the G. T. P.
should appoint an executive officer at
Prince Rupert competent to discuss
business directly with the business men
of the city and who desires to come to
the city. At present these business men
had to search half over Canada for tbe
right man to make their propositions to.
A fair and friendly spirit was the
right one in which the matter between
the G. T. P. and the city should be
dealt with. If the G. T. P. Railway Co.
were really coming to the city prepared
to spend millions of dollars here then he
thought the city could well afford to
grant them exemption of taxation.
"What Prince Rupert wants is a pay
roll," he declared emphatically.
The Former Election
Referring to the election in which he
had been an unsuccessful candidate Mr.
Morrow said he fancied it might have
been as well for himself and the city
that he was defeated. He had been
watching the council closely since, and
thought that on the whole too much
adverse ctiricism had been directed
against it. He was certain that every
member of the council was doing his
utmost for the good of the city. (Applause). He thought the council's
most serious mistake had been in once
turning down the press, and this he
said, was not because he had been
interested in one of the newspapers, but
because the best way of circulating
the attractiveness and prosperity of the
city was through the news published
in its own newspapers daily.
Mr. Morrow renewed his thanks to
the assembled company and sat down
amid a storm of cheering.
A pleasing interlude was now contributed by Professor Kauffman with
violin selections then followed the
Toast of Prince Rupert
proposed by Aid. Maclntyre, supported
by Aldermen Pattullo, Hilditch, Lynch
and Barrow.
Aid. Maclntyre said this was a very
important toast and coupled with the
very important names in the city. But
the city was to lose a good man in Mr.
Morrow who was ever an optimist. The
pessimist might well be spared but
never the optimist. Referring to the
past election, he said that many citizens
then had refused Mr. Morrow because
they thought they knew him. Now
they might wish to reverse their decision.
There was one hopeful thing about
Mr. Morrow's departure. He was only
going to Vancouver, and no one who
ever went to Vancouver from Prince
Rupert ever stayed long in Vancouver.
"We're Here Because���"
"We're here because���"
The toast of the city was drunk
heartily and followed by the vociferous
chanting of the old familiar chorus.
Aid. Pattullo then responded saying
Telegrams Delayed
~1
The telegraph wire was
working good this morning,
after the thorough repairs
following the storm, when a
freight train on the Canadian
Pacific, near Yale, run off the
track and smashed down a row
of telegraph poles. This temporarily cut off communication.

The CMC of the two boys charged
with breaking into a cabin over the bay
was before Judge Young this afternoon.
The Judge postponed it until the
boy's parents can be notified of their
position. ,
OPERATOR ON A BAR
Hazelton  Left This  Morning With
Load for Hardscrabble
The stage of the water in the Skeena
this morning was thirty-two inches
below zero and still falling. This is
about what it waB at the same date
last year, so that it is hoped boats will
be able to move for several days yet.
As a warning, however, that the season
is near its close, the Operator is on a
bar a mile below Kitselas. The other
boats seem to be doing all right, the
Port Simpson and the Inlander making
very good progress.
The Hazelton left this morning for
Hardscrabble. She had few passengers
but a large load of freight for this stage
of the water.
CHARGE AGAINST LADS
Of Breaking Into Cabin Oyer the Bay
and Stealing Property
Two lads, have been arrested
on a charge of breaking into a
cabin on the other side of the bay and
stealing therefrom a shot gun, an axe, a
hammer, a watch and chain, a sum of
money and several other articles, all of
which property was recovered last night
on their arrest by the city police. The
case came before Magistrate McMullin
this morning and the boys were committed for trial. Owing to the offence
having been committed outside the city
limits Magistrate Carss has no jurisdiction in this case.
TOWN LOTS IN VICTORIA
Government to Auction Off LoU in
Songhes Reservation
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria,Oct. 26.-The Songhee Indians
have agreed upon a price they will
accept for the reserve situated right in
the heart of this city. This offer has been
accepted and the government will very
shortly auction off the property.
The construction of the new government telegraph line form Kitsumkalum
to Stewart is proceeding as rapidly as
could be expected, according to J. T.
Phelan, superintendent of the government telegraph service, who has just
returned form a partial inspection of
the work. He says that he has twenty
men at work on the Kitsumkalum end,
and when he left a few days ago they had
reached Kitsumkalum lake, a distance
of twenty-eight miles. For this distance
they have the poles up and the wires
strung.
The difficulty has been, he says, that
of transportation. There is a government road just completed along the
Kitsumkalum valley, but it is by no
means a wagon road, and the best that
ican be done on it is to use jumpers.
Also, around the lake the timber is
very heavy and the work must necessarily proceed slowly.
The fierce storm of last week delayed
the work of construction as the men
were called off to repair the present
wire. The storm raged through the
Bulkley and Kispiox valleys and tore
down many of the poles. Portions of
the line had to be entirely reconstructed
and to do this work he engaged all the
competent men he could find. As an
instance of the force of the storm he
tells of a cow belonging to the Burns
company being killed by a tree falling
on the animal, trees being torn from the
roots and piled up along the Kitsumkalum valley and at other points.
Mr. Phelan goes to Stewart in a few
days to inspect the progress made from
that end of the line. The construction'
gang there has already passed Goose
Bay, a distance of about forty miles.
This leaves about seventy miles of line
to be built. The two gangs will come
together at the Naas river, somewhere
near lanish. Quicker progress will be
possible over these last stretches, as the
nature of the country traversed is more
favorable, and he hopes to see the line
completed before the close of the year.
But this depends on the state of the
weather, as along these valleys there is
always a fear of interference by very
heavy snow.
"The Ladies of Prince Rupert are
good cooks"; bo some one remarked
the other day. This ensures a most
delightful Banquet at the Methodist
Church next Monday evening? Are

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

London, Oct. 16.���Great Britain is
determined to play the role of best
friend to the republic of Portugal just
as she did to the kingdom.
It is well understood that the statement of Senhor Jose Reivas, the new
Lisbon finance minister, regarding "The
supreme interest attaching to the preservation and development of our colonies," reflects a complete understanding
with the London government. Whatever money may be needed to carry out
this policy it will be an easy matter to
obtain in Lombard street.
Sir Edward Grey is maintaining the
tradition of the British foreign office
in supporting Portugal on the East
African coast, where lie her most valuable colonies, and the establishment
of the South African commonwealth
renders it tenfold more desirable for
Portugal's dominion in that part of
the world to be maintained.
British statesmen are almost equally
desirous that the status-quo as to the
colonies on the West African coast be
preserved, because in spite of the arrangement under which, in certain
eventualities, Germany was to take
the west coast possessions of Portugal and England the east, London has
never viewed such a contingency with
composure.
Manuel and the queen mother received a cordial, though not a demonstrative welcome on their arrival in
this country this week. Their presence
will emphasize the fact that England is
taking the place of France as the home of
exiled royalty.

RECEPTION OF PREMIER
Will Arrive Here on Princo Rupert on
Her Next Trip to This Port
William Manson, MP. P., last night
received a telegram from Premier McBride which corroborates the press
^Patches published by the Optimist
'"regard to his visit to Prince Rupert.
����� Wegram states that the premier

Telegrams Delayed
The telegraph wire was
working good this morning,
after the thorough repairs
following the storm, when a
freight train on the Canadian
Pacific, near Yale, run off the

Two  Bad  Boys
The case of the two boys charged
with breaking into a cabin over the bay
was before Judge Young this afternoon.
The Judge postponed it until the
boy's parents can be notified of their
position.,
OPERATOR ON A BAR
Hazelton  Left This  Morning With
Load for Hardscrabble
The stage of the water in the Skeena
this morning was thirty-two inches
below zero and still falling. This is
about what it was at the same date
last year, so that it is hoped boats will
be able to move for several days yet.
As a. warning, however, that the season
is near its close, the Operator is on a
bar a mile below Kitselas. The other
boats seem to be doing all right, the
Port Simpson and the Inlander making
very good progress.
The Hazelton left this morning for
Hardscrabble. She had few passengers
but a large load of freight for this stage
of the water.
on their arrest by the city police. The
case came before Magistrate McMullin
this morning and the boys were committed for trial. Owing to the offence
having been committed outside the city
limits Magistrate Carss has no jurisdiction in this case.
CHARGE AGAINST LADS
Of Breaking Into Cabin Oyer the Bay
and Stealing Property
Two lads, have been arrested
on a charge of breaking into a
cabin on the other side of the bay and

which property was recovered last night
TOWN LOTS IN VICTORIA
Government to Auction Off Lots in
Songhes Reservation
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria.Oct. 26,-The Songhee Indians
have agreed upon a price they will
accept for the reserve situated right in
the heart of this city. This offer has been
accepted and the government will very
shortly auction off the property.
The construction of the new government telegraph line form Kitsumkalum
to Stewart is proceeding as rapidly as
could be expected, according to J. "jf.
Phelan, superintendent of the government telegraph service, who has juBt
returned form a partial inspection of
the work. He says that he has twenty
men at work on the Kitsumkalum end,
and when he left a few days ago they had
reached Kitsumkalum lake, a distance
of twenty-eight miles. For this distance
they have the poles up and the wires
strung.
The difficulty has been, he says, that
of transportation. There is a government road just completed along the
Kitsumkalum valley, but it is by no
means a wagon road, and the best that
j,can be done on it is to use jumpers.
Also, around the lake the timber is
very heavy and the work must necessarily proceed slowly.
The fierce storm of last week delayed
the work of construction as the men
were called off to repair the present
wire. The storm raged through the
Bulkley and Kispiox valleys and tore
down many of the poles. Portions of
the line had to be entirely reconstructed
and to do this work he engaged all the
competent men he could find. As an
instance of the force of the storm he
tells of a cow belonging to the Burns
company being killed by a tree falling
on the animal, trees being torn from the
roots and piled up along the Kitsumkalum valley and at other points.
Mr. Phelan goes to Stewart in a few
days to inspect the progress made from
that end of the line. The construction'
gang there has already passed Goose
Bay, a distance of about forty miles.
This leaves about seventy miles of line
to be built. The two gangs will come
together at the Naas river, somewhere
near Ianish. Quicker progress will be
possible over these last stretches, as the
nature of the country traversed is more
favorable, and he hopes to see the line
completed before the close of the year.
But this depends on the state of the
weather, as along these valleys there is
always a fear of interference by very
heavy snow.
"The Ladies of Prince Rupert are
good cooks"; so some one remarked
the other day. This ensures a most
delightful Banquet at the Methodist
Church next Monday evening? Are

Clothes Are to Be Sombre With Single
Dash of Color
London, Oct. 22.���Despite the story
which occurs from time to time for
more color in men's clothes, sombre
hues will prevail among well-dressed
men this winter. The only hope for
the man who likes a dash of color
seems to lie .in his handkerchiefs. The
reign ef the passionate sock is over,
or at any rate, it will reign unseen,
for spats have usurped its place.
"Brown is to be the leading color of the
winter," said one of the leading tailors
in Saville Row, "and the chief change
is that coats must no longer be slit up
the back. They are to be cut out fairly loose with less waist than before,
still just following the lines of the
figure, a roll collar, a pocket, without
flap on either side, and a handkerchief
pocket. Waistcoats will be cut a lit���
lte lower in the opening, say six to
seven inches between the bottom and
top buttons, and the trousers will be
made with the ends turned up.
"We are making many dark blue
dress suits; they are barely distinguishable from black at night. Dress
waistcoats must be either white pique
of black velvet, made with four buttons, instead of three, with a roll collar, not stitched down, and the opening
in an inverted V shape at the bottom.
The smart man this winter must
carry a stick in the evening. There is
a gerat revival in the malacca. The
malacca cane with rhinoceros horn
mounting costs from $12 to $24. Snake-
wood is also largely used for evening
canes and camma ���ash, a pretty gray
wood, is popular for day canes.
An innovation is the long cigarette
holder. The amber cigarette holder,
eight or nine inches long, with a band
of blue or mauve enamel or gold, is to
be the correct thing this winter.
Tie pins, if worn at all, will be small
and expensive. A single black pearl, a
circle of fine diamonds, emeralds, or
rubies, set in platinum, alone are pre-
missable.
Waistcoat buttons for evening wear
must be mother of pearl or white enamel
set in oxodized silver or platinum,
sometimes with diamonds.
The man who wants to be "just it"
must confine himself as regards ties to
black, black and white stripes or dark
blue with a large white spot. In handkerchiefs he may let himself go. The
popular colors in silk handkerchiefs
are violet, purple and blue.

It is expected that the census will cost a

LEVINE AGAIN
BEFORE COURT
WHO OWNED THE HORSES IS THE
QUESTION
Adjournment for Another Week for
Appearance of Peter Annance, the
Stewart Freighter Who Was Partner With Levine'* Son.
Vancouver, Oct, ?2.���The trial of A.
S. Levine, who is charged on complaint
of several wholesale firms in this city
with obtaining goods under false pretences, was continued this morning before
Judge Mclnnes, and again adjourned
until Saturday next, to permit the
presence of a witness who is now in
Stewart. Levine is defended by Mr.
S. S. Taylor and Mr. D. Donaghy.
H. O. Sawyer, proprietor of the
Royal hotel, Marysville, East Kootenay, told the court that he had been
running a packing establishment at
Stewart until a month ago, when, he
gave his wife a bill of sale of the horses'
and other equipment.. He did this
because Provincial Constable Sampson
of Fernie told him he could not run a
hotel at Marysville and a transfer
business in Stewart at the same time.
Sawyer said that he was the proprietor of the transfer business prior
to this, and that the Stewart Mercantile Company, with which Levine was
connected, had nothing to do with the
horses. In the complaint it is charged
that Levine represented himself as the
owner of these horses in order to get
credit in buying goods in Vancouver.
Mrs. Sawyer was called as a witness
and produced the bill of sale.
Levine was called by the defence
and retailed at length his connection
with the Stewart Mercantile Company,
in which he was, he stated, a silent
partner. His son and Peter Annance
were the record partners, while he did
the buying for the firm on a commission basis. He said that the transfer
business was merely a branch of the
general business of the firm, and that
the firm owned the horses and equipment.
Albert Levine, son of the accused,
was also called, and corroborated his
father's evidence. The case was adjourned on motion of the defence in
order to have Peter Annance appear.

BOY SCOUTS IN CANADA
General Baden-Powell, since his return to London, has assured newspaper men
that within two or three years the number of Boy Scouts in the Dominion will
have reached 20,000, as compared with the 150,000 to 200,000 in Great Britain.
"I went out," pursued the Chief Scout, "for the purpose of giving advice to
the organization in matters of policy, and so forth. But I found on my arrival
that the main organizations were all complete. I visited seventeen centres, and
found the greatest enthusiasm among the lads for th�� scheme. The Governor-
General, I found, had taken an active interest in the movement, and the lieutenant-
governors in all parts of Canada were following his example. Leading men everywhere are doing the same: Church people, education authorities, as well as the
Minister of Defence. Their interest and that of the boys has disproved the idea
that Boy Scouts in Canada would not be a success, because of the cadet corps in
existence. Instead of that they have come opportunely to fill up gaps left by tne
cadets."
The Brantford, Ont., Expositor says: The Expositor has received a copy of
The Prince Rupert Optimist, which contains in addition to any amount of "boom"
material, pictures of the municipal 'statesmen' of the embryo city. Among the
most prominent of these, of course, is that of Mayor Stork, a former Brantfordite,
whose advent in the 'infant' city seems to be the most natural thing of the world."
Aid. Smith gave some valuable information last night when he told the business
men of Prince Rupert that the cost of the first hundred miles of the G. T. P. was
$7,000,000. At the terminus in Prince Rupert alone the sum of one million dollars
has been spent and as the alderman pointed out this is the best assurance in the
world that the railway company have got to make Prince Rupert a great city.
GRIEVANCE OF LONG STANDING
Mining men interested at Whitehorse, Yukon, are put to great inconvenience
through the records being kept at Dawson. It would be better if the Minister
of the Interior adopted the same system as in force in the Province of British Columbia and subdivided the Yukon territory into mining divisions with independent
recorders for each. It is to be hoped the administration will be amended accordingly
and that without loss of time.���B. C. Mining Engineer.

PRESBYTERIAN CLUB
First Regular Meeting Was a Great
Success.   Educational Topic*
There were seventy-five pleased and
enthusiastic members at the first regular
meeting of the Presbyterian Club last
evening. It was an auspicious opening
and an excellent indication of the success
which is sure to attend the organization.
The president, H. F. McRae, who
occupied the chair, made a splendid
opening address, outlining the prospects
and ideals of the Club. He compared
this organization to the old Athenian
Clube where people met to tell some new
thing.
The musical portion of the evening's
program was an excellent solo by Mr.
Stewart, and also a sweetly rendered
vocal selection by Miss Craig.
Mr. C. V. Bennett gave the piece de
resistance in his address on Sophocles'
Theory of Life and Destiny.'" He
pictured vividly some of the tragedies
written by that wonderful old philosopher. The address gave the members
a new interest in the learning of the
Grecian Age.
Rev. Kerr followed this address with
a series of pictures of Athens showing
the scenes referred to by the previous
speaker. He also quoted front Matthew
Arnold on the same theories expounded
by Sophocles.
To conclude the evening refreshments
were served.
At the next Wednesday evening
the program will either be an address by
H. F. McRae on "New Thought" or a
ladies' debate.
Punctuality is a convenient virtue.
You are going to be at the Annual
Banquet at the Methodist Church next
Monday night. The room is limited, the
hour is six forty-fiver, it may be difficult
to keep a place for you after the hour.
Please be on time.
PLEASING  CHILDREN'S PARTY
Held Yesterday Afternoon in Home
of H. Hoffman
Yesterday afternnon a charming and
novel display was given in honor of
Master Abraham Leo Hoffman, who is
just nine months old, in the house of his
father, Mr. 41. Hoffman. The ceremony
which is known as a "Simchas Tora"
party is an old established custom with
Jewish families, and takes place at the
completion of the Feast of Tabernacles
or Jewish harvest thanksgiving festival.
All the children of the neighborhood
were invited with their mothers and,
seated on the floor in a circle with the
baby boy in the centre, they were treated
to showers of candies, sugared almonds,
and other jjood things.
Presents and specially hand-painted
souvenirs appropriate for the occasion
were given to the ladies present. The
party included Mrs. H. Cameron, Mrs.
D. Cohen, Mrs. Burdie and Mrs. I.
Director with children, also Mrs. B.
Cohen, Mrs> M. Weinster, Mrs. E. A.
Woods and Miss Lottie Chancell. The
party broke up at six p.m., the guests
and children going homewards charmed
with their experience, and the good
things bo generously provided.
Said To Be Opium
A Chinaman by name Chu Chuck
Sam charged at Kitselas with having
sold opium to May-Smith and fined $100
with $50 for license and $12 costs, has
applied for certioriari which means the
annulling of the conviction. He will
probably claim the return of the fine
which was paid with the other moneys
if his application should prove successful. The case was under consideration
by Judge Young this afternoon. Several points are involved in it, an important one being the nature of the stuff
alleged to have been opium which was
sold by the Chinaman.

j he would avoid mentioning such a topic
as the election that evening. If Mr.
Morrow came back about January 1st
he would hear all about that. He
referred to Mr. Morrow's well-known
reputation as a family man, laughinly
remarking that when he and his family
departed they would lessen considerably
I the city's population!
Aid. Barrow saying that two or three
J people, even though only aldermen, were
enough to respond to the toast of the
city paid sincere tribute to Mr. Mor-
I row's good humor and hospitality.	
Aid. Hilditch told of his own first
impressions of Prince Rupert, and how
he had decided to make his home here.
He thought the best thing a young man
could do was to put his money in Prince
Rupert today. He admired Mr. Mor-
I row. Though Mr. Morrow had been
I knocked down once, he had got up
again. He hoped Mr. Morrow would
be back soon.
Aid. Lynch said he was not so sure
that Mr. Morrow would be back so
quickly as they all hoped for he had
noticed the magnetism of the metropolis
in attracting men of Mr. Morrow's
stamp. By and by of course, Prince
Rupert would have the same power. He
wished Mr. Morrow all propserity and
happiness.
After Mr. Dawes Gilmore had given
the song, "Out on the Deep," and been
enthusiastically encored, the toast of
"The Ladies" was proposed by Dr.
Clayton who took the opportunity very
happily to pay a high
Tribute to Mrs. Morrow
who had been their guest's invaluable
helpmeet throughout his years in the
district.
����� F* Macdonald reposnded with
similar well-expressed sentiments and on
Mrs. Morrow's behalf Mr. Morrow rose
t(> reply. He said with deep feeling that
he would find it difficult to speak for
her on this occasion as words failed him
�� express fully his sense of the worth of
we wife who had been by his side during
his twelve years' stay amid sll the early
aimculties of this part of the world. As
'"end and wife she had been his companion and comfort, and while much
mient be forgotten by him his wife's
��nare in his success he would never
forget.
Cheers were called for Mrs. Morrow
ai>Q heartily given.

"������ work done here by Mr. Morrow.

����i >!""Dunn- The most *��������
"to he ever 8aw Mr. Morrow make
was his present one in leaving the best
part of British Columbia. Mr. Dunn
went on to dwell on the magnificent
resources of Northern British Columbia
concluding with the optimistic statement
that in a very short time Prince Rupert
would be as big as Vancouver.
Farm Yard Imitations, by J. G. Weston gave a humorous breathing space
before the next toast
Canada's Transcontinental
proposed by Vernor W. Smith, who said
that few people even in Prince Rupert
could realize the tremendous cost and
work involved in constructing a great
transcontinental railway line.
The outlay in hard cash alone required
to build a line such as that in which
they were all interested would stagger
some. As for the other problems and
interests involved they were on a corresponding scale. Just by way of
instancing the meaning of his words,
Mr. Smith remarked that the section
of the line under construction by the
firm he represented extended to about
1000 to 1200 miles and the first 100
miles was costing for grading alone about
seven million dollars.
Mr. Smith went on to say most emphatically that he was convinced beyond
shadow of doubt that the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway company would never
change their terminus now. They had
spent, and were spending still, too much
money for that. To get in to Prince
Rupert alone they had laid out over
twenty million dollars. It was not
likely that they would let that amount
go for nothing.'
Mr. Smith added "his tribute to those
already so warmly expressed to Mr.
Morrow, and in response to the toast
of the "Transcontinental" Mr. Duncan
Ross arose to speak greeted with cheers.
Mr. Ross said the railway originated
in the minds of optimists. It was a
railway of the pathfinder, ready to take
chances at first on the unknown lands
ahead of him. Mr. Ross told of the
earliest ideas put forth about this line,
and how at first poorly received they had
borne fruit in the present possession of
a great transcontinental all red road
with double the carrying power of any
other railway in Canada. And Prince
Rupert was its terminus.
Touching lightly on the question of
politics, Mr. Ross said that opinions
on that subject varied now and then.
Thus, Mr. Manson thought the present
government the best possible, Mr. Ross
thought the very opposite but his
esteem and friendly regard toward Mr.
Manson was none the less sincere.
Regarding the assessment difficulty
with the G. T. P., Mr. Ross said emphatically that the G. T. P. as a corporation would take all their rights
and whatever else they could get. He
advised the citizens not to be stampeded,
but to stand up for their rights which
would be the best course for both parties
eventually. (Cheers.)
The last toast of the evening that of
"The Press" was proposed by Mr.
Newton who spoke at some length, and
was responded to by Mr. Charles Sawle
briefly. Mr. Morrow then added a few
clising remarks of appreciation of the
work with him during his short experience in the newspaper business of
Mr. G. R. T. Sawle.
With the singing of "God Save the
King," and "Auld Lang Syne," the
banquet broke up. Everything went off
entirely successfully and great credit is
due to Mr. and Mrs. Gilmore of the
Premier hotel, and staff for the excellence
of the catering and general success of the
banquet. Hearty cheers were called
for Mr. and Mrs. Gilmore before the
guests dispersed and enthusiastically
given.
Much credit is also due the toast-
master of the evening for the able performance of his difficult duties and to
Mr. J. E. Merryfield who managed the
arrangements of the banquet.

After you have analyzed the investment field you
will be convinced that in order to make more than ordinary
profits, it is necessary to invest in an industry in which more
than ordinary profits are possible. If you go into ordinary
lines of business, or industrial investments, you will find
that the profits are naturally limited by competition, supply,
and demand, market, trade conditions, trust combines and
a thousand and one factors, so that five, or six, or seven per
cent, is about all that can be expected. Apply the same
money, the same time and the same talent in an industry
where wealth is taken from Mother Earth, where new wealth
is actually created, and where the conditions that limit the
profits in ordinary lines of business are unknown, and where
the profits are many times what they are in ordinary pursuits and you will find that the same amount of money will
earn very much larger profits, you will make more money
quickly, more easily, amd more safely than you could possibly
hope for under ordinary conditions. The real and lasting
wealth comes from our natural resources and the more you
realize this and invest according to the natural laws of
success, the mort wealth you will acquire.
We submit the greatest investment opportunity you
might hope for, or that could possibly be brought to your
attention, is now presented in the development of the rich
mineral wealth of the Interior���the mining industry in the
Hazelton district is on the eve of an era of unbounded
prosperity, men of fore-sight, keen discernment and successful mining experience admit this and confidently predict
this district 'will become the greatest wealth producing
area on the North American continent. The coming summer
is to be one of unprecedented mining activity, vast profits
will be made by those with enough discrimination in their
make up to see an opportunity and sufficent push and energy
to take advantage of it.
We have consistently advised our clients and friends
to invest a portion of their surplus in "Silver Cup Mines,"
because, we believe the stock will steadily advance on the
true merit of the property, the enterprise is of solid worth,
of actual and substantial merit, backed and managed by
men of unquestionable integrity. Whether you have $100.00
or $1000.00 to invest it will pay you to give "Silver Cup
Mines" earnest consideration, a small investment will not
earn a life of ease for you, but it will certainly result in the
addition of a few figures to your bank balance.
To ignore this opportunity is as bad as clapping
Galileo into jail for saying the world is round, it won't cost
you anything to investigate the merits of "Silver Cup
Mines" it may cost you some keen regrets if you don't.
Full information concerning development under way
today and those contemplated are available at our office.
Call or write at the earliest opportunity.

Free Milling Proposition on Mainland Opposite Swanson Bay���Nino
Claims Giving Gold Values of Five
to Forty Dollars the Ton.
Vancouver, Oct. 24.���Very encouraging reports have been received in Vancouver respecting the progress of mining
operations on the D. L. S. group of nine
claims, a free-milling gold proposition on
Princess Royal Island, opposite Swanson
Bay on the upper mainland.
Development work has been prosecuted since last April when a bond
on the group, which is crown granted, was secured from the owner, Mr.
A. E. Cleveland, of this city by a local
syndicate consisting of Judge Aulay
Morrison, Messrs. A. H. MacNeill, K.
C, Jonathan Rogers, A. B. Clabon,
Fred M. Wells, R. J. Bealey, D. S. Wall-
bridge and A. E. Howard, special land
commissioner of the Great Northern
Railway, Chicago.
The company has acquired sixty
acres of land covering the landing
place, a site for a mill and a water
power capable of developing 2000 horsepower. Electrical energy will be transmitted from the power-house at the falls
to the site of the proposed mill, a distance
of six miles.
The outcrops consist of two parallel
veins about 10 feet apart occurring
in a fissure zone which is known to
extend for a distance of several miles.
The larger vein has been developed
by means of a tunnel which has been
driven in on the ore for a distance of
300 feet, gaining a depth of 250 feet,
and a 60-foot shaft sunk on .the outcrop almost perpendicularly above the
face of the tunnel.
The gold values .secured for the
entire length of the working varied
from $5 to $10 per ton and all of which
is considered good pay ore.
Since taking charge of operations,
Mr. Fred M. Wells, who is a pioneer
of the Rossland and Cobalt camps,
drove a crosscut from a point 150
feet distance from the portal and crosscut fifteen feet of clean ore before
striking the hanging wall. Careful
sampling in this new strike gave average values of $15 per ton.. A winze
is now being sunk from the floor of the
crosscut. When a depth of five feet
had been attained a number of samples
were taken from the bottom, the average
being $28 per ton. Other samples taken
in the crosscut close to the hanging wall
gave a return of $82 gold per ton. Farther in the tunnel a number of crosscuts
have been made in ore of the same
character without striking the hanging
wall. The dip is at 'an angle of 45
degrees and on the surface the out-
croppings are about twelve feet in width.
The parallel and smaller vein is about
four feet wide. It has been crosscut
by a 140-foot tunnel gaining a depth
of 100 feet, the ore assaying from $30
to $40 per ton.

The scheme has not been definitely

devoted to the dining room, which is
up to date in every respect. The hours
for serving meals will be as follows:
breakfast from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., lunch

Houston Rests His Bones
After Life's fitful fever John Houston
Is going to sleep well in Nelson, his old
stamping ground. Although he died as
far away as Prince Rupert he just
naturally couldn't rest anywhere except
in the home town. The old-timers
gave him a grand funeral and will put
up a monument big enough to hold his
buoyant spirit down. John Houston
was a pioneer newspaper man in British
Columbia, used to run newspapers like
the "Arizona Kicker" and the "Iconoclast," newspapers that soaked up all
the local color of the mining camps and
spread it out on the printed page. If
John Houston could have, detached
himself from the daily current of things
he might have been a Bret Hart, for
he had that kind of vivid eye. But he
liked to be in the thick of it���so the
newspaper held him and literature lost
him. They don't run John Houston's
kind of newspaper in British Columbia
now. The honest-truth sort of thing
got him into a lot of trouble in his later
years. The fact was that the Last
West had moved on and left him standing where he was twenty years ago. The
past, that could never be again, lived
mostly in his heart. He was its solitary
active symbol; his old tillicums had
changed their ways to suit the newer,
smoother times. The rip-roaring, poker-
playing Nelson of John Houston's prime
is no more. Only the mountains and the
beckoning gulches speak of the old,
riotous Kootenay dayB. Nelson is as
lawful and orderly now as any Ontario
town. Violence has gone to sleep and
the jail looks like a summer hotel. John
Houston wouldn't know it.���Canadian

SWINDLER OF
HIGH DEGREE
BARONET'S  SON  CONVICTED  OF
FRAUD
Won Notoriety in British Columbia
by Hia Issuance of Bogus Check*���
Five Year* Ago Was a Resident of
Victoria.
News from London gives particulars
of the escapades of Robert Henry
Spearman, aged twenty-seven, ex-naval
officer and son of a baronet, who was
sentenced to three months' imprisonment for frauds, at restaurants and for
obtaining four pounds from Miss Violet
Deane by false pretenses. Spearman is
not unknown in British Columbia. Four
or five years ago he lived in Victoria
and achieved considerable notoriety by
the manner in which he lived. He owed
much money, and left for the upper
country leaving behind him a trail of
bogus cheques. He served nine month
in gaol at Kamloops for this offence.
Spearman's method in defrauding
the restaurants was to dine there, and
then tell the waitress that he had no
money to pay for what he had eaten.
When the case was first before the
court the police said there were complaints of cheque frauds against the
ex-officer "all over the continent."
Spearman made a speech to the court
in his defence, declaring that he had
no more intention to defraud than any
other gentleman going to his tailor's
and ordering suits of clothes without
money in his pocket to settle the bill.
A gentleman, who did not give his
name, but described himself as the
brother officer of accused, and recently
from abroad, volunteered the statement
that Spearman's assertions as to his
former position were quite true. He
knew, he said, Mr. Spearman led an
honorable life as an officer in the navy.
Detective-Sergeant Cornelius explained
that Spearman's account of his retirement from the navy was that he was
adjudicated a bankrupt, all his trouble
being due to extravagance. Since 1907
he had been associated with touring
theatrical companies in Australia.
The magistrate said he did not know
anything more difficult than what to
do with a gentleman who turned swindler. Four years ago Spearman made
London too hot for himself, and since
then he had made foreign cities too
hot. Reports of him had been received
from all parts of the continent, and
now he had come back to London and
begun again. It was no use blinking
it. He would do his best, but the
whole thing seemed very bad, and
prisoner would have to stay in gaol for
three months.

RESTORATION IMPOSSIBLE
Former   Premier  of  Portugal   Says
Effort Would Be Useless
Paris, Oct. 22.���The Temps publishes
an Interview with Senhor Teixeria de
Sousa, former premier of Portugal, who
says that while the king and hjs cabinet
were aware of a revolutionary movement, nevertheless the minister voted
that if a rising occurred they would not
ask for foreign intervention, because
that would be unworthy and humiliating, and also because they were convinced that .any power intervening in
Portugal would decline to retire after it
had accomplished its purpose. The former premier is of the opinion that restoration of the monarchy will be impossible, and that any attempt to that end
will be useless and liable to plunge the
nation into a destructive civil war.

GOLD MINE ON
PRINCESS ROYAL
ENCOURAGING RESULTS OF THE
WORK DONE
Free Milling Proposition on Main-
lane* Opposite Swanson Bay���Nine
Claims Giving Gold Values of Five
to Forty Dollar* the Ton.
Vancouver, Oct. 24.���Very encouraging reports have been received in Vancouver respecting the progress of mining
operations on the D. L. S. group of nine
claims, a free-milling gold proposition on
Princess Royal Island, opposite Swanson
Bay on the upper mainland.
Development work has been prosecuted since last April when a bond
on the group, which is crown granted, was secured from the owner, Mr.
A. E. Cleveland, of this city by a local
syndicate consisting of Judge Aulay
Morrison, Messrs. A. H. MacNeill, K.
C, Jonathan Rogers, A. B. Clabon,
Fred M. Wells, R. J. Bealey, D. S. Wall-
bridge and A. E. Howard, special land
commissioner of the Great Northern
Railway, Chicago.
The company has acquired sixty
acres of land covering the landing
place, a site for a mill and a water
power capable of developing 2000 horsepower. Electrical energy will be transmitted from the power-house at the falls
to the site of the proposed mill, a distance
of six milee.
The outcrops consist of two parallel
veins about 10 feet apart occurring
in a fissure zone which is known to
extend for a distance of several milee.
The larger vein has been developed
by means of a tunnel which has been
driven in on the ore for a distance of
300 feet, gaining a depth of 250 feet,
and a 60-foot shaft sunk on .the outcrop almost perpendicularly above the
face of the tunnel.
The gold values .secured for the
entire length of the working varied
from $5 to $10 per ton and all of which
is considered good pay ore.
Since taking charge of operations,
Mr. Fred M. Wells, who is a pioneer
of the Rossland and Cobalt camps,
drove a crosscut from a point 150
feet distance from the portal and crosscut fifteen feet of clean ore before
striking the banging wall. Careful
sampling in this new strike gave average values of $15 per ton.. A winze
ia now being sunk from the floor of the
crosscut. When a depth of five feet
had been attained a number of samples
were taken from the bottom, the average
being $28 per ton. Other samples taken
in the crosscut close to the hanging wall
gave a return of $82 gold per ton. Farther in the tunnel a number of crosscuts
have been made in ore of the same
character without striking the hanging
wall. The dip is at -an angle of 46
degrees and on the surface the out-
croppings are about twelve feet in width.
The parallel and smaller vein is about
four feet wide. It has been crosscut
by a 140-foot tunnel gaining a depth
of 100 feet, the ore assaying from $30
to $40 per ton.

Houston Rests Hi* Bone*
After Life's fitful fever John Houston
Is going to sleep well in Nelson, his old
stamping ground. Although he died as
far away as Prince Rupert he just
naturally couldn't rest anywhere except
in the home town. The old-timers
gave him a grand funeral and will put
up a monument big enough to hold his
buoyant spirit down. John Houston
was a pioneer newspaper man in British
Columbia, used to run newspapers like
the "Arizona Kicker" and the "Iconoclast," newspapers that soaked up all
the local color of the mining camps and
spread it out on the printed page. If
John Houston could have, detached
himself from the daily current of things
he might have been a Bret Hart, for
he had that kind of vivid eye. But he
liked to be in the thick of it���so the
newspaper held him and literature lost
him. They don't run John Houston's
kind of newspaper in British Columbia
now. The honest-truth sort of thing
got him into a lot of trouble in his later
years. The fact was that the Last
West had moved on and left him standing where he was twenty years ago. The
past, that could never be again*, lived
mostly in his heart. He was its solitary
active symbol; his old tillicums had
changed their ways to suit the newer,
smoother times. The rip-roaring, poker-
playing Nelson of John Houston'* prime
is no more. Only the mountains and the
beckoning gulches speak of the old,
riotous Kootenay days. Nelson is as
lawful and orderly now as any Ontario
town. Violence has gone to sleep and
the jail looks like a summer hotel. John
Houston wouldn't know it.���Canadian

SWINDLER OF
HIGH DEGREE
BARONETS SON  CONVICTED OF
FRAUD
Won Notoriety in British Columbia
by His Issuance of Bogus Check*���
Five Year* Ago Was a Resident of
Victoria.
News from London gives particulars
of the escapades of Robert Henry
Spearman, aged twenty-seven, ex-naval
officer and son of a baronet, who was
sentenced to three months' imprisonment for frauds, at restaurants and for
obtaining four pounds from Miss Violet
Deane by false pretenses. Spearman is
not unknown in British Columbia. Four
or five years ago he lived in Victoria
and achieved considerable notoriety by
the manner in which he lived. He owed
much money, and left for the upper
country leaving behind him a trail of
bogus cheques. He served nine month
in gaol at Kamloops fer this offence.
Spearman's method in defrauding
the restaurants was to dine there, and
then tell the waitress that he had no
money to pay for what he had eaten.
When the case was first before the
court the police said there were complaints of cheque frauds against the
ex-officer "all over the continent."
Spearman made a speech to the court
in his defence, declaring that he had
no more intention to defraud than any
other gentleman going to his tailor's
and ordering suits of clothes without
money in his pocket to settle the bill.
A gentleman, who did not give his
name, but described himself as the
brother officer of accused, and recently
from abroad, volunteered the statement
that Spearman's assertions as to his
former position were quite true. He
knew, he said, Mr. Spearman led an
honorable life as an officer in the navy.
Detective-Sergeant Cornelius explained
that Spearman's account of his retirement from the navy was that he was
adjudicated a bankrupt, all his trouble
being due to extravagance. Since 1907
he had been associated with touring
theatrical companies in Australia.
The magistrate said he did not know
anything more difficult than what to
do with a gentleman who turned swindler. Four years ago Spearman made
London too hot for himself, and since
then he had made foreign cities too
hot. Reports of him had been received
from all parts of the continent, and
now he had come back to London and
begun again. It was no use blinking
it. He would do his best, but the
whole thing seemed very bad, and
prisoner would have to stay in gaol for
three months.

RESTORATION IMPOSSIBLE
Former   Premier  of   Portugal   Say*
Effort Would Be Useless
Paris, Oct. 22.���The Temps publishes
an interview with Senhor Teixeria de
Sousa, former premier of Portugal, who
says that while the king and hjs cabinet
were aware of a revolutionary movement, nevertheless the minister voted
that if a rising occurred they would not
ask for foreign intervention, because
that would be unworthy and humiliating, and also because they were convinced that .any power intervening in
Portugal would decline to retire after it
had accomplished its purpose. The former premier is of the opinion that restoration of the monarchy will be impossible, and that any attempt to that end
will be useless and liable to plunge the
nation into a destructive civil war.

If you sleep with

as you should do,
you must have
warm bed covering���warmth with-
out too much
weight. Cotton
sheets with newspapers between
would retain the
heat of your body
and thus keep you
warm, but they
would not permit
mit sufficient circulation of air.
The ideal bed covering, better than
expensive eiderdown quilts, is the
old-fashioned, all
wool blanket. We
have! them in all
weights, all sizes
and all prices, and
we have, as well,
the eiderdown
quilts and the
cheaper comforters. In fact our
stock of bedding is
very complete and
this is the seasonable weather that
suggests their purchase. We shall
be glad to have you
look over our stock

London, Oct. 22.���Replying to an inquiry in the Daily Chroncile concerning
rumors that Great Britain and Germany
intended to take over the Portuguese
colonies, Senhor Machado, the Portuguese foreign minister, telegraphs that
the republic does not intend to relinquish the least portion of its colonies.
Senhor Belvas, the Portuguese finance
minister, has sent a cablegram to the
London Financial News stating that the
government is in a position to meet all
the treasury's liabilities, and that foreign interests will suffer nothing through
the establishment of the new government. The government, the finance
minister si.ys, contemplates a great
reduction it; useless expenditures, and
will endeavor to place the country on a
sound financial footing.

San FranciBco, Oct. 22.���Failing to
reach a satisfactory agreement as to
his end of the purse probably will prevent Battling Nelson from making his
re-appearance in the ring in San Francisco. Nelson, at any rate, will not be
a principal in this month's boxing attraction, his bout with Antone LaGrave
having been called off when Promoter
Griffin could not "see" Nelson's demand
for a guarantee of $3,600.
Nelson announced today that unless
a match of some sort was arranged for
him here within the next few days he
would leave for Chicago.
TOMMY BURNS ON STAGE
Is   Meeting  With   Rare --Success  -As
Vaudeville Artist
Vancouver, Oct. 22.���Tommy Burns,
the former heavyweight champion, is
again within the gates of our city,
though his stay will be but brief. He
will depart on Saturday, only to return
on Tuesday to attend the boxing tournament at the V. A. C, where he may
possibly referee one bout, and then will
start for Calgary, where he is appearing
in the show business.
Since Tommy was last in the city he
has embarked upon a theatrical career
with rare success. It will, howeVer, be
suspended in time for him to go into
training for his match in London next
March with the Boston Tar Baby. The
Canadian pugilist is a regular Midas.
Everything he touches turns to glittering gold, for- his appearance on the
boards of vaudeville in a monologue
stunt into which he introduces bag
punching and the knockout has brought
in the cash in a widening stream. He
broke all records for the theatre he
played in at Portland and could have
been making his bow to big audiences
this week too if his knee had not again
begun to bother him. Burns is nursing
this joint with patient care and hopes in
time to have it as good as it ever was.
Tommy is accompanied here by his
brother-in-law, Mr. Keating, a well-
known coast theatrical man. They are
staying at the Woods hotel.

And after the chorus had been repeated,   the   delegation   of  Intelligent
