Sixty Miles.
(Special to the Optimist)
Belmont Park, New York, Oct. 29 ���
Two aviators were injured this morning
and the world'a record broken in the
Coupe Internationale. Walter Brookings
and LeBlanc are in the hospital with
internal injuries which it is thought are
likely to prove fatal.
The race was twenty times around the
race course, making a total of sixty
miles. Brookins, Hamilton and Drexel
had entered as the American aviation
team, and Grahame White, Hadley and
Oglivie represented Great Britain. There
was also a European team.
LeBlanc had lapped Grahame White,
travelling at the rate of seventy miles
an hour, when he crashed to earth.
Brookline fell from a height of thirty
feet, directly in front of the grand stand.
Grahame White finished the twenty laps
and the speed officially announced was
sixty-six and six-tenths miles an hour.

NEARLY, ALL THE
HYDRANTS IN
SYSTEM   OF   FIRE   PROTECTION
-    MUCH IMPROVED
Will Be Best Possible Under Existing
Circumatancea���How These Favorable Results Were Carefully Planned Out and Completed.
The whole of the new fire hydrants
will be in place in the next three or
four days and then the city, according
to the city engineer, will have as good
fire protection as present conditions will
furnish.
Very good progress has been made in
this direction since Colonel Davis came
here. At that time the city was short
of water and was in a peculiar position
as far as fire protection was concerned,
not only on account of the shortage
of water but because of the small size
of the mains. Both these defects have
been remedied.
The first plans for a fire proptection
system for the business section of the
city called for large cast iron mains
which could become a part of the
permanent system at a later date, and
as at that time the only remedy for the
shortage of water seemed to be to use
salt water, the plan took in the erection
of a fire underwriter's pump, placed on
a float in the harbor close to the shore.
This could not be carried out because
the railway company owns the water
front and purposed grading at once
at the point selected.
Then the attention of the engineering
force was directed to the supply of water
that might be obtained from Hays
Creek, and it was found that a point
south of the last blading on Comox
avenue a certain supply of fresh water
could be obtained. Also, it was found
that the railway would allow the use
of the pump the company has there,
formerly used to supply the company
with water.
Then it was found that the stream
in the neighborhood of the pump had
become polluted with sewage matter
and refuse, so it was necessary to arrange for an intake three thousand
feet above the point of contamination.
This was done by means of a dam and
about three thousand feet of wood pipe.
From this source the consumers were
supplied during the dry season. The
pump has not sufficient power for fire
protection purposes, but water is now
always stored in the dams that have
been constructed on the mountainside
for that purpose. This source of supply
gives a pressure of over five hundred
feet.
Three or four weeks ago the twenty
DUTIES  OF  OUR   NEW   HARBOR
MASTER
A Position of Growing Responsibility
Falls to Be Filled by Captain T. H.
Allcock Who Haa Now Received
His Papera.
Captain T. H. Allcock who was reported by wire from Ottawa to have
been appointed harbor master for Prince
Rupert has now received the official
letter of appointment. He states that
the letters of instruction regarding his
new duties have not been enclosed with
the documents of his appointment as
promised, but he expects these by the
next mail.
Meanwhile as Captain Allcock is well
up in the terms of the Act regarding
Canadian harbors and harbor master's
duties he intends to proceed following
the statute routine system.
According to the Act, the harbor .
master has to keep a book in which he
must enter daily the name, registered
tonnage, and harbor dues of every
vessel using the harbd?.. He has to
direct the harbor anangements and
positions in loading and unloading cargo,
and arrange au that the working of the
ships in port is expeditional and fairly
carried on in respect to each other, and
with regard to wharf room.
The harbor master has also to look
after the buoys, and other guides for
vessels using the harbor, and see to it.
that these are kept in place and in re-'lt
pair. He must furnish all pilots bringing
ships into port with copies of the harbor
regulations, and must himself of course
be well versed in these regulations.
It is up to the harbor master to see
that the regulations are properly observed, and to prosecute anyone' violating them.
The harbor master's salary is fixed by
the government and is derived directly
from the fees paid by vessels entering
the port. If at any time the amount
of the fees falls below the amount fixed
for the harbor master's salary the
amount received in fees is his remuneration.
Captain Allcock who holds the British
captain's certificate has a thorough
knowledge of these waters having over
twenty-two years' experience of the
coast. His position as first harbor
master appointed to a harbor of the
size and promise of Prince Rupert's is
one of ever-growing responsibility, and
will increase in importance immensely
with the advance of the city's trade by
sea.
fire hydrants previously ordered came
to hand, and the city engineer recommended the placing of them only on
the 6-inch main; i of the city, as on the ���'
mains of lesser dimensions they would |
be practically useless. Also, permission j
was obtained from the railway company
to use its 6-inch mains running through
the centre of the city. The 6-inch'
mains, those of the city and of the
company combined, have given excellent
results, and when in a few days the
whole of the hydrants are installed, the
city wil have the best fire system it
ever had and the best possible under
existing conditions.

There is a conscience of the hehd as
well as of the heart, and in old age we
feel as much remorse if we have wasted
our natural virtues.���Lord Lyton.
FOR some fifteen years those interested
in the mining industry of British
Columbia recognised that it would
be of great value to geological investigation and development if a Department of
Mines were established at Ottawa. The
proposal did not, however, take definite
shape till the famous mining convention
held in Victoria in 1903, when a strong
resolution was adopted on the subject
and steps taken to represent the views
of our mining men to Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
The result was that provision was made
for such a department in the annual
estimates, and Hon. W. Templeman,
who had for some time been a representative of the province in the senate
and was at the time Minister in charge
of the department of internal revenue,
was appointed minister in charge of
the new department. The geological
survey was taken out of the department
of the interior and placed under the new
minister. Immediately new life was
thrown into the geological survey. Its
field of operations was extended, its
staff increased, and A. P. Low, who had
done much valuable work on survey
and had a practical knowledge of the
territory of the Dominion and its
requirements, was appointed director,
a position which he held till 1906, when
he was offered the position of Deputy
minister of the department, and Professor Brock, an officer of the survey,
with high scientific attainments, knowledge of the field and territory of the
Dominion generally, succeeded as director.
Under Mr. Templeman's administration the value to the public of the
geological survey, and especially the
mining interest, has been much improved, its maps and reports being a
standard of reference in all the active
mining camps of the province, as well as
the recognized mineral fields of the Dominion generally. The location and
development of many coal deposits is
due to the work of the survey.
Under the bounties administered by
the department of mines the iron and
steel industry of the eastern provinces
has grown to immense proportions.
But the east was not to have a monopoly
of the bounty system. The Kootenay
country was dead, and the outlook blue
when the alternative was proposed of a
tariff or a bounty. Home consumption
being small, the tariff did not promise
solution. After considering the whole
phase of the problem Hon. W. Templeman recommended a bonus as the
HON. WILLIAM TEMPLEMAN
MINISTER OF MINES
better course. His recommendation
was adopted by parliament. Notwithstanding the low price of silver the
silver-lead industry, which is the staple
resource of the Slocan, took on new life,
and production again showed an increase till last year the returns for lead
shipments were the highest in the
history of the province, and that in
the face of an unfavorable market.
As a result the mining outlook in the
Slocan is better than for twelve years
past.
The zinc'problem is admittedly one
of the most difficult with which the
mine owner in the Kootenay has to deal.
The silver-lead ores are more or less
zinc-bearing, and the penalties levied
by the smelters on excess zinc contents
often seriously reduce the returns from
the ores. Information was lacking.
Methods adopted had not been attended
with much success. Mine owners felt
that they were groping in the dark and
represented   their   case   to   Hon.   Mr.
Templeman. He came to their rescue
in the only way that seemed practicable,
at the time:- He took steps to have an
investigation of the problem. He had
appointed a commission including Walter
R. Ingalls and P. Argall, two of the best
recognized authorities on zince mining
and metallurgy. Along with A. C.
Garde, an associate with. local know-
legde, these gentlemen went thoroughly
over the field, visiting the principal
zinc properties, and submitted a report
which was issueed in 1906 in book form,
and is a valuable work of reference on
the zinc occurrences, methods of treatment, and marketing of ores.
This information having been gained
the problem yet remained of finding
economic methods for treating complex
zinc ores. The position was presented
to Hon. Mr. Templeman, who recommended parliament to authorize a grant
of $50,000 for the purpose of investigation of processes, with a view to placing
in the possession of mine owners a
practical and economic method of handling their ores. This investigation is
now in progress.
With a view to placing before mining
men and investors the actual facts
concerning the new mining camps of
British Columbia, as Sheep Creek and
Portland Canal, the mininter arranged
for members of the geological survey to
examine these camps. The report and
map on Sheep Creek have been given
to the public, and the summer will see
the work at Portland Canal in shape for
publication.
Officers of the department are at work
not only in other parts of British Columbia but over the new fields of the
vast dominion, gathering knowledge
and information as to geological and
mineral formations on which will be
based the development of the future.
Canada in general, and British Columbia in particular, owes much to Hon.
Mr. Templema-n as minister of mines,
and the value of the work of the department in Canada has been internationally
recognized so that it led at the last
session of congress to the establishment
of a similar department at Washington.

Poet Service Will Return
Robert W. Service, the bard of the
Yukon, is now on his way to New
York, where his new book, "The Trail
of '98," is in the press. This is a prose
work dealing with the early rush to the
Klondike, It will be published in Canada by William Briggs & Co. The
famous Canadian author will spend the
winter with his mother at Edmonton
and in visiting some of the cities on
this continent, returning to Dawson in
April or May. It is good news that
Mr. Service is returning to the land of
his first inspiration, as he will be able
to keep in touch with the conditions
which made him a literary lion. Victorians take a particular pride in Service, because he spent some of the
formative years of his life in tha t city.

To Link Trunk Roads
At the approaching session of the
Legislature, Hon. Thomas Taylor, Minister of Public Works, will ask for large
appropriations in connection with the
extension and improvement of the trunk
roads in various parts of the province,
says the Colonist. One of the most important of these works will be the completion of connections between Vancouver and the portions of the Dewdney
trunk road already built. In order to
bring Vancouver into direct touch with
the north side of the Fraser there remain
to be provided only two trunk lines between Barnet and Coquitlam. With
these completed, there will be a good
motdring highway from Vancouver to
Harrison river.

P. O. BOX SIS Prince Rupert
Wild Cat Prospectus Issued in London Gives the Source of Yarns
Which Temporarily Placed Stewart
Full in the Lamplight.
Various explanations have been given
as to how the stories of the "Mountains
of Gold" which eventually gave Stewart
such a black eye at the beginning of this
season really originated, and there has
been great effort made to unearth tbe
source of them. In all probability it
is to be found in the extraordinary wild
cat prospectus issued in London, England. The company calls iteslf "The
First New B. C. Goldfield of Canada,
Ltd., capitalized at one hundred thousand
pounds. The prospectus quotes the
following letter from a Mr. Heming,
written under date of June 15th, which
had evidently been given to the London
press and thus started the stories. It
reads:
"If you remember, I told you I had
come here to meet my prospectors that
had been prospecting for several months.
Yesterday they returned with wonderful
tales of a strike they had made at Marmot river, Portland Canal District, B. C.
Magee, my foreman, says that they
prospected up this river about seven
miles from the head of Portland Canal
and were the first white people in this
district. He staked four claims over a
mile long, and averaging about 2000
feet high and 1500 feet wide. When he
returned to Portland Canal and had his
samples assayed the news of the find
spread, and now thousands are prospecting near my claims. He says it is
the most wonderful find and that hundreds of years could not exhaust the
���re, which is silver and gold and we
believe free-milling. It is not certain
until we get inside. He assures me this
find will surprise the world for richness
and magnitute.
"He has staked and recorded these
four claims for me, and was the first
to stake claims there, so that there can
be no dispute as to ownership. I hold
the mining recorder's receipts. All that
remains to be done is the survey and
development work to secure crown
grants.
"I really believe that it will produce
millions and probably it will not require
much capital to work. This should be
a mine of the Mt. Morgan style but
many times larger owing to its great
height. Please don't think I am carried
away with any wild cat notion. I have
the ore and vast mountains of it. Portland Canal is a wonder and no mistake."

Nature and Man
Nature is pitiless; she never withdraws her flowers, her music.her fragrance
and her sunlight from before human
cruelty or suffering. She overwhelms
man by the contrast between divine
and social hideousness. She spares him
nothing of her loveliuess, neither wing
of butterfly nor song of bird. In the
midst of murder, vengeance, barbarism,
he must feel himself watched by holy
things; he cannot escape the immense
reproach of universal nature and the
implacable serenity of the sky. The
deformity of human laws is forced to
exhibit itself amidst the dazzling rays
of eternal beauty. Man breaks and
destroys; man lays waste; but the
summer remains summer; the lily remains the lily; the star remains the
star.���Victor Hugo.

Contest  For  Magnificent  Cane   Invented by J. Fred Ritchie
The ladies of the Catholic Church,
under the efficient leadership of Mrs. J.
F. Ritchie, will hold a bazaar on Friday,
November 4th, opening at 3 p.m. and
closing at 11 p.m.
Hustle, hustle, rustle to our Bazaar!
Attractive display of many fancy and
useful articles donated by Catholic
ladies and non-Catholic friends; delicious refreshments; good musical program; fishing pond; raffle; popularity
contest; all winding up in a dance.
Don't miss to come; there will be
barrels of fun for old and young.
Have a look at the charming bridesmaid doll beautifully dressed exhibited
at Miss Barbeau's millinery store. A
gilt-edge opportunity for the lucky
individual to win a doll which will
make the delight of any girl.
A novel and lively feature at the
Bazaar will be the voting contest, at ten
cents -a vote, between Mayor Stork and
Aid. Vernor Smith. The moat popular
candidate will be presented with a
magnificent $75 gold-headed cane. Go
and see it exhibited at Keeley's drug
store.   It is a beauty.
The many friends of both candidates
who so gracefully accepted, are preparing to make this contest a lively one.
Join right in!   It will be good.
Canada's Next Cenaua Taking
The official announcement is made that
the taking ot the next census of the
Dominion has been fixed- for next June,
and already the newspapers are discussing the question of census-stuffing
and the steps that must be prevented
to avoid this.   The Toronto Globe says:
"With a man of the proved integrity
of Archibald Blue at the head of the
Census bureau there is not the remotest
reason for the fear that Quebec will be
allowed to stuff the lists, even were she
desirous of doing so, which nobody
believes, and so give herself a better
representation than she ought to have
relatively to the other provinces."
The Nelson News takes issue with this
statement and says there was no reason
for dragging Mr. Blue's name into the
discussion:
"But there are politicians who would
find it in their interest to increase the
number of members from Quebec and to
decrease the number from other provinces; both these results can be attained
by stuffing the census of Quebec; and
there are a good many people who have
openly expressed their opinion that this
was done at the last census and that it
may be done again."
It may be that the hot controversies
over the census taking which have
occurred across the boundary may have
had something to do with raising the
point among Canadian journals all this
way ahead of the time. But the situations do not appear to be analogous.
A single instance is mentioned, on this
side, and that of a political character.
This element does not seem to appeal on
the other side, the squabbles there apparently arising solely from municipal
vanity and ambition. It was particularly hot among the coast cities, so much so
that Tacoma has demanded of the
government a recount. All the new
western cities will no doubt feel the same
civic pride in the growth of their communities, and there will probably be
some friendly rivalry between them.
Prince Rupert will be interested, and
'all the world will be interested in the
rapid growth in population which by
next June this seaport will be able to
show. We are a rival of Vancouver
just as Tacoma is of Seattle; and while
the census will not show Prince Rupert
has anything like the population of the
much older city, the percentage of our
growth during the first year of our
municipality will without doubt be a
startler.

Prince Rupert, you are a bird or a duck.
With fruit behind us and fish in front of us we are certain to fare pretty well
in Prince Rupert.
It is pleasant to feel that you are living in a city with a future so absolutely
assured as is the future of Prince Rupert.
Open the window once in a while and look out upon the world. It is intensely
interesting.   See the great joyous throbbing throng.   Isn't it great?
THINGS DOING
At the last sitting of the council a resolution was put through calling for tenders
for the balance of Section One Local Improvement District and a large number
of plank roadways throughout the residential districts. With the work already
under way this means that Prince Rupert will be a beehive of industry and the
merchants of the town are quite certain of having an exceedingly profitable winter.
It is a good thing for Prince Rupert that the city council in inaugurating the
city government, did so with a view of extensive improvements along the lines
of permanency for all time to come. The whole of the present business section
will be graded during the next six months and will so materially improve the appearance of the streets that it cannot fail to impress intending investors.
Then, too, by building plank roadways to the outer districts, property owners
will be enabled to build homes much more cheaply and it is certain that building
in consequence will be stimulated.
Other matters of equal importance have not been overlooked. The immediate
water supply was made as thoroughly adequate as circumstances would permit
and a large number of men were put to work making surveys preliminary to the
building of a permanent water supply from Woodworth Lake. These surveys
are now about complete and no doubt the installation of the system will begin
at an early date. Although the water situation has not been an easy one to handle,
water has been supplied to everyone who has asked for it. The Fire Department
has been made as efficient as possible under existing conditions and hydrants have
been placed in the most advantageous places throughout the city.
"The electric light situation, one of the most difficult to solve from an economic
standpoint is well in hand and installation proceeeding rapidly.
Altogether it looks as if things have been doing down at the City Hall.

INVADED BY
HUNGRY HORDE
KETCHIKAN HAS A NEW AND
NOVEL EXPERIENCE
Eight Hundred Passengers of Disabled Steamer from Nome Descend
upon Hotels and Restaurants and
Devour the Visible Supply.
The Princess Royal, which arrived
here this morning, brought a story of
Ketchikan being invaded by eight
hundred starving passengers and practically cleaned out of provisions in
consequence. The steamer Northwestern, crowded with passengers from
Nome and Valdes, had put in there disabled. A leak in the main steampipe
had made itself known soon after leaving
Valdes, and the vessel had been creeping
along at a snail's pace until Ketchikan
was reached. That was how the commissary run out of provisions.
No sooner had the disabled steamer
touched the Ketchikan dock than the
crowd of passengers rushed for the
restaurants and hotels and devoured all
the food that could be obtained. The
steward had also got a hurried movement on him. He made for the meat
market and provision stores, hoping to
get there before somebody had time to
make a corner on the market. The
first store he struck he purchased four
hundred pounds of bacon at the current
price. After that the market stiffened
very materially, and the price of meats
and food stuffs increased at every place
he called at.
The captain of the Northwestern
assured his passengers that he would be
able to get away today, but when the
Princess Royal touched there her captain and purser were bombarded with
supplications for berths, a crowd of the
stranded people offering as much as
$100 for passage to Vancouver, preferring
to pay that sum rather than wait and
take chances of further delay on the
disabled Northwestern. But the Royal
had but a few berths outside of those
reserved for Prince Rupert passengers,
as she had already a goodly load of
returning Klondikers.
Many of the passengers from Nomo
forgot their troubles upon arrival here,
in the unexpected pleasure of having an
opportunity of seeing Prince Rupert.
The Princess Royal left at ten o'clock
this morning, with about a score of
passengers, all told, from this city.
Organising Liberalism
Engaged in his new task of reorganizing the Provincial Liberals, Mr. Ralph
Smith, the federal member for Nanaimo,
is at present in the city, a guest at the
Empress hotel. Since his arrival he has
had several conferences with the leading
Liberals in the city and it is understood
that an executive meeting of the local
association will be held soon, with a
view to strengthening the organization.
Similar attention is being paid to the
Esquimalt district, during Mr. Smith's
visit here.���Victoria Colonist.

NEW  DINING  ROOM
Royal   Hotel   Makes Many Changes
and Improvements
WANT MAIL SERVICE
Spiller River People Have Lone; Trip
for  Letters
An agitation is on foot among the
residents within a two mile radius of
Spiller river, Porcher Island, for a mail
service. At present these people get
their mail by going to Claxton ten miles
distant, Prince Rupert twenty miles
away, or Refuge Bay a journey of 18
miles for them. The need for a mail
service is increasing as the lands and
roads here have now all been surveyed
and the popluation is a growing one.
When the government wagon road
promised for next year for the thirty-
five miles from Spiller river to Jap
Inlet is completed there will be a still
greater demand for a mail service.
TAXES PAID $35,000
Amount Received by Assessor Up to
Friday Night
City Assessor McLelland had record
up to last night of tax payments received
to the amount of $35,000.
About $25,000 remains still to be
paid by the citizens, and as Tuesday is
the last day limiting the period during
which the discount of 16 2-3 per cent
is allowed as rebate on tax payments,
those who have not yet paid should get
busy at once and hand in their shekels.
The City Assesor says that a good
many citizens have short memories on
this tax payment business, and a number
are absent from town so that the subject
escapes their immediate notice.
He anticipates that practically the
whole amount of taxes due will be in on
time though not all before Tuesday.
Canada's Copyright Laws
A somewhat important change in
the copyright law as it applies to Canada, is in prospect. Hitherto, a copyright granted in the United Kingdom
has been valid all over the Empire, but
through an arrangement entered into
between Mr. Sidney Fisher, Minister
of Agriculture, and Mr. Sidney Buxton,
President of the Board of Trade, Canada is hereafter to enjoy complete
autonomy in this regard, and it is said
that a bill will be introduced at the forthcoming session, requiring that all books
shall be printed in Canada before they
can have the benefit of the copyright.
Starting on Thursday, October 27, the
Royal hotel will conduct a purely hotel
dining room and to do this and give
the public the best service and the best
meals several important changes have
been made. The lunch counter has
been disposed of and the entire space
devoted to the dining room, which is

HAD BREEZY TRIP
Mr. Burns, of City Engineer's Dept.
Returns from Porcher Island
After having been storm stayed for a
couple of days on Porcher Island while
looking after the work of preparing
poles for the city electric lighting plant,
Mr. Burns returned last night at 7
o'clock in the city launch.
The launch had tr pretty good dusting
coming across, but made the passage in
good shape though bucking against the
breeze most of the time and delayed
accordingly.
The poles are coming along all right,
Mr. Burns says. They are being peeled
and prepared for setting up, and another
consignment will be rafted over pretty
soon.
Regarding the shortness of a certain
number of poles mentioned by Aid.
Mobley at the last council meeting Mr.
Bums remarks that these poles were a
few ordered under the first specifications
for the, lighting plant when the idea
was to have the site at Seal Cove. Since
the site has been altered, there is no
longer the need|for these short poles, and
they are being otherwise disposed of for
city purposes.
Squabble About Monasteries
Barcelona, Oct. 29.���There was
a riot in the city council this morning,
when the majority favored the removal
of all barriers to monasteries and their
being thrown open to the public. The
minority protested so stringly that the
police had to be called into the chamber.

Porcher Island Potatoes
William Lane was in the city the other
day with a fine lot of potatoes grown on
his land at Porcher Island. * The ground
on which they were grown has been
under cultivation for only a year. Mr.
Lane declares that agriculturally Porcher
Island is beyond the experimental stage.
Clarke Bros, for Beers and Liquors.

Mr. Crombie Missing
Mr. Crombie, the well-known expert
accountant, has been missing for a
week. Last Saturday he left all his

Masquerade Ball
The Masquerade Ball on Monday
night at the Roller Rink promises to be
a huge success. A very large number
will be on the floor in costume and many
fancy dresses are now being prepared
for the event.
Saskatchewan Wheat Crop
One-fortieth of the area of Saskatchewan produced almost seventy million
bushels of wheat this year, and it was
not a good year for wheat either. When
our sister province really gets down to
business it will have wheat to burn.

CHILDREN'S COLDS
Now is the time when your
children are very apt to catch
cold. The sudden changes in
the weather, the difference
between school and house and
open air, getting uncovered at
night, alj often lead to sore
throats, coughs and grippe.
MATHIEU'S SYRUP
of Tar and Cod Liver Oil
should be taken at the first
symptoms. Children find its
taste pleasant, and it keeps
them well and strong.
No better combined cure and
tonic has ever been compounded.
Ask for Mathieu's Syrup of Tar
and Cod Liver Oil.
Where there is fever with the
cold take Mathieu's Nervine
Powders to reduce the fever and
relieve the pain. They are sold
in boxes of 18 powders for 25c.

If he'd been there!   Oh, if he'd been on

When Moses gave the Ten Commandments birth,
He would have writ a different bunch of

To guide us���with the simple caption

If he'd been there, with his great verbal

He would have spoke a Sermon from the

To which the one men know would scarce

If he'd been there!
If he'd been there! Oh, if he'd had his say
As Antony shed tears o'er Caesar's clay,
He would have said, "Hey, Mark, you
take a walk,
And I will do the 'Friends and Romans'
talk!"
If he'd been there in those glad, later days
He would have written all of Shakespeare's plays,
And staged them too, and acted them for
fair���
If he'd been there!
If he'd been there and had a decent
chance,
He would have  written the Edict of
Nantes,
The Magna Charta and the Declaration
That shook the shackles from this infant
nation.
If he'd been there he would have made a
peach
Of Washington's inauguration speech,
And of D. Webster's fame have filched

If he'd been there!
If he'd been there he would have made, I
guess,
Worth while Abe Lincoln's Gettysburg
Address;
And think of all the mix-ups and confusion
Avoided had he writ the Constitution!
In short, it is a shame he wasn't given
Creation's job by a far-seeing Heaven.
He would have made a better earth, I

Good Story on Price Ellison
A good story is being told of Hon.
Price Ellison whose new appointment
to the Portfolio of Finance and Agriculture was recently announced. The
honorable gentleman is very popular
with his constituents in the Okanagan
but while he has been very successful
in business and politics he is not taken
seriously as an agriculturalist, hence
this story has a bearing upon his recent
advancement.
Professor Thornber of Pullman College, Wash., recently went through the
valley giving demonstrations for the
benefit of the orchardists. Among the
orchards in which he demonstrated was
one near Duck Lake.
The next day when addressing a
meeting of fruit growers he dilated upon
the advantages of that orchard as a,
demonstrating point. He said: "Yesterday I demonstrated in an orchard
which for that purpose was the finest
I ever worked in. In it I had an example
of everything I wanted to speak about.
If there was a bug or a grub or a disease
of any kind which I wanted to illustrate
I found it right there. If I wanted an
example of bad pruning I had it in that
orchard. If I wanted to show how
grafting should be not done, there was
the horrible example. For bad methods
of cultivation I had every kind to point
to."
At thiB point the curiosity of one of
his listeners got the better of him and
he shouted "whose orchard was that?"
The speaker who had forgotten the name
turned to one of his assistants and asked
the name of the owner.
"Hon. Price Ellison," was the answer
and the laughter that followed showed
the audience fully appreciated the joke.

HANDY  GOVERNMENT  MAPS
Sent Free to Thoae Who Apply to Department of Interior for Them
Nothing ia of such real value in the
kit of a prospector or land seeker or
hunter as a good map, and a great
deal of credit is due to the Dominion
government, and more especially to the
department of the interior, for the
numerous excellent maps which it is
continually issuing, and has now been
issuing for some years.
These maps give in clear, graphic
and accurate form the latest information obtained by the government departments on all sorts of subjects. No
other maps published in Canada are so
good or anything like so "up to date."
It would be to the public advantage
if they were much more widely distributed than they are. No doubt the
cost would be something of an obstacle,
but a selection might possibly be made
that would bring the cost within reasonable compass.
Out of the hundreds of maps, large
and small, prepared by the departments
each year, there are at least ten or
twenty that it is highly desirable every
intelligent citizen should have if he is
to know his country as it is today. This
selection would be particularly useful
in schools, and if it were possible to
put it on sale for the benefit of the
more advanced pupils this would be a
most desirable thing to do.
The government maps are so good,
and most of those for sale are so in
ferior to them���those in the school
geographies particularly so���that it seems
something like a public loss that their
merits should not be made more widely
known. The government is really too
modest about them.
WINES AND LIQUORS
For Thankgaiving Feativitiea at the
Clarke Brother*
The immense shipment of wines,
liquors and beers that Clarke Bros., received this week will afford a splendid
opportunity for securing your favorite
drink for Thanksgiving festivities. Liquid
refreshments at dinner time are an
essential. A glass of Budweiser before
your meal and a glass of choice liqueur
after the turkey makes a man feel contented and thankful. It was with this
idea in view that Clarke Bros, had their
big stock arrive at this time. They
have everything you may desire.      ���4t

THE CONTRAST
The farmer, in his pasture steep, has
reared a flock of healthy sheep. He
takes his trusty shears and axe, and
cuts the wool off their broad backs, and
then he takes the wool to town, and
for it gets some roubles down, and then
the children have new hats, the daughters
blow themselves for rats. The wool is
taken to the mill that toots its whistle
on the hill, and dyers dye, and carders
card, and weavers weave it by the yard.
And tailors make it into suits which
clothe the forms of rich galoots. And
hands are busy, larders full, because
the farmer raised his wool. And homes
are bright, and children play, as happy
as the livelong day, and busy housewives cease to weep, because the farmer
sheared his sheep. The statesman
tours across the land, and scatters
words on every hand; he tells the
people they're oppressed, their rights
all driven galley west; they euchred are
by sinful games; whatever is is wrong, he
claims. As though to stir rebellion sent,
he sows the seed of discontent. Which
is the better friend to keep, the farmer
with his flock of sheep, or he who makes
no wheels go round, but Alls the land
with empty sound?���Walt Mason.

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.

Victoria, Oct. 26.���When His Majesty's Canadian Ship Rainbow, the first
to fly the Canadian naval flag on the
Pacific, arrives at Esquimalt on Novem-
ber  6th,  she  will  ije given  a rousiig
i welcome.    The  steamers   Quadra   and
| Kestrel  will  be sent out to meet the
j incoming warship and when she enters
the harbor a salute of seventeen guun
will be fired from the saluting battery
: at Works Point barracks.
A civic committee has been appointed
j to make arrangements for the celebration in honor of the warship, and it is
announced that the provincial government will take part with the city of
Victoria in providing the welcome. The
drill hall has been secured for an entertainment and buffet supper to be given
to the officers and crew of the warship,
the officers and men of the Work Point
barracks and the Fifth regiment C. G. A.
being invited to be present. Arrangements are also being made for a citizens'
banquet to be given later to the officers
of the Rainbow. ,
H. M. C. S. Rainbow is in command
of Capt. Stewart, a son-in-law of Col.
Peters, formerly in command of military district No. 11, headquarters at
Work Point barracks. The cruiser
was one of the Apollo class of cruisers
built under the Naval Defence Act
and with the Naiad, Retribution and
Tribune was considered an ineffective
vessel by the Admiralty. The vessel
is 300 feet long, 43 3-4 feet beam, and
with maximum draught of 18 feet. She
has a displacement of 3,400 tons and
in the British service carried a crew
of 273 officers and men. The machinery consists of two sets of vertical
triple expansion engines, with two
screws. The designed horse power,
natural, was 7,000 with speed of 18.5
knots and forced, 9,000, with 20 knots.
The normal coal consumption is 400
tons and maximum 535 tons. The
best any vessels of this class can do
now is 16 knots for anything but a short
time.
The Rainbow was refitted before
leaving. When owned by the British
Admiralty her armament consisted of
two 6-inch wired guns, six 4.7 guns,
eight 6-pounders, one 3-pounder, four
machines, and four above water torpedo  tubes.    The   armor,  of  steel,  is
as follows: Deck, two inches; five
inches at the engine hatches, 4 1-2 at
the gunshields and 3 inches at the
conning tower.
When the Rainbow was refitted after
being purchased by the Canadian government it is understood that the guns
placed on her were those taken out of
the wrecked Gladiator which was run
down by the American liner St. Paul
off the Isle of Wight. The salved guns
were taken to Portsmouth and were
mounted on the Rainbow.

Run Streets at Night and Are Not
Fit for School
As a result of the lack of control
over the boys of the city the police will
bo given instructions to round up the
youngsters who are on the streets at
night. In the past the boys have run
wild. They have developed many bad
and mischievous habits. Some have
already appeared in the police court
and others will be there in the near
future. The teachers in the public
school are complaining that many
children are not fit to attend school
and prepare their lessons, due to the
fact that they run the streets until all
hours of the night. Their mentality
is sadly affected and they are physically
declining. The teachers sent their
complaint to the school board and that
body will take the matter up with the
police commission. If there is no by-law
governing the point the council will be
asked to pass one at once. Parents and
guardians will take notice.
