ANOTHER THRONE TOPPLED OYER
Portugal May Be a Republic By This Time.--Meagre  Reports
State Army and Navy Joined Rebels, But Fierce Fighting
In Lisbon Shows Some Loyalty to King Manuel.
STILL LOYAL TO KING
Special to the Optimist
London, Oct. 5.���It is reported
that hundreds have been slain
and that a bloody conflict is still |
raging in Lisbon. This is taken
to mean that part of the population of the Portugese capital is
still loyal to the king.
(Special to the Optimist)
Paris,  Oct.   5.���The Echo  de  Paris
prints a wireless despatch from its correspondent at St. Marie de Lamer, Cape
Blanc, saying:
"Revolution is breaking out in Portugal. A great part of the army and all
the navy have gone on the side of the
Republicans. At two o'clock this afternoon the bombardment of the royal
palace commenced. All entrance to the
city is forbidden. It is impossible,
therefore, to procure details."
Telegraph communication with Portugal has been interrupted since three
o'clock yesterday afternoon.
'Laughter

���n court, promptly
tari"8 a few words of argu-
London, Oct. 6.���British warships
are en route to Lisbon today to protect
British interests in Portugal, according
to the Exchange Telegraph. It is not
known whether the commanders of the
warships have received orders to protect
the Portugese royal families or not.
Gibraltar, Oct. 5.���The British cruiser
Newcastle started for Lisbon under
orders received last night and the cruiser
Minerva followed her today. The
Newcastle was lying with steam up
ready to start for China when the orders
came and she was sent to the Portug uese
capital.
Badajos, Spain, via Portuguese Frontier, Oct. 5.���A Republican provisional
movement, patterned after the government of Brazil, is in control of Portugal
today, according to refugees from Portugal arriving here. Everywhere, it is
said, the royal standards hav been
replaced by the red and blue flags of
the new republic.
The fate of King Manuel and
whether he is under arrest or not is not
quite clear.
Heavy firing preceeded in the taking
of Lisbon, whose fall marks the fall of
the Braganza dynasty if it means no
more. It is reported that the list of
dead and injured is long, but whether
the army and navy joined with the rebels
or stood loyally by the government is
not definitely known here. The general
impression seems to be that they joined
the rebels in revolt.
The refugees assert that the rural
districts are still loyal to the monarchy,
and reports that have come in during
the afternoon would seem to indicate
that at noon the royal palace was still
resisting the attacks made upon it.
Last night the Brazilian warship Sao
Paola, bearing the president-elect of
the new republic, arrived in the harbor
of Lisbon, and it is thought possible that
King Manuel is with Dr. da Fonseca on
board the Brazilian man-of-war and
therefore safe.
The revolution is being felt in all the
REPORTS ARE CONFIRMED
Special to the Optimist.
London, Oct. 5.���It is stated
that the correspondent of the
Reuter Telegram Company confirms the report of the revolution
in Portugal, and adds that the
rebels have captured the palace.
outlying Spanish provinces and as
Spain is in a state of great unrest it is
greatly feared that the plot to form a
republic in that country on the basis
of that of Brazil, which has been known
for many months, may suddenly lead
to uprisings.
San Sebastian, Oct. 5.���The northern
Spanish army corps has been mobilized
upon an order from Madrid, which
indicates that the Spanish authorities
had advanced information of the Portuguese outbreak and took steps to be
ready to suppress a sympsthetic revolt
in Spain in its incipency. The news
from Lisbon of the success of the rebels
spread like wildfire, and it seems likely
the revolutionists in this part of Spain
will make a strike against the monarchy.
Washington, Oct. 5.���Diplomats here
believe that Great Britain is preparing
to intervene in Portugal, as the late
King Edward was an ardent supporter
of King Manuel, and it is thought
King George will follow his father's
policy.
TRANSIT IS
RECOVERED
BUT BODIES OF DROWNED  NOT
YET RAISED
Dragging Operations Are Still in
Progress, but Nature of Lake Bottoms Seems to Be Against Successful Search.
The transit instrument which was
lost when the canoe capsized on Shawatlans Lake causing the loss of the lives
of two of the survey party, was recovered during dragging operations for
the bodies of the drowned yesterday.
The place where it was found marks
of course, the exact spot where the
canoe capsized, and renewed efforts
are being made to recover the bodies.
But the great depth of the water, and
the uneven nature of the bottom of the
lake are rendering the work exceedingly
difficult and uncertain of success.
The work on which the party were
engaged when the fatality occurred
is being continued, A. Agnew having
taken steps to secure the services of
men to replace the two who were so
unfortunately lost.
MAY COME TO RUPERT
Ralph Smith to Attempt Reorganization of Liberals of Province
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Oct. 4.���Ralph Smith, it
is officially announced, is to start soon
on a tour of the whole province with a
view to the reorganiztion of the Liberal
party.
RETURN  FROM |HUNTINC TRIPS
"Rover" Party Have Had an Enjoyable Month of It
Captain Babington returned yesterday
afternoon from a hunting trip taken with
Mr. Heggie of Sunderland, England, and
Mr. Boyd of Troon, Scotland, on board
the Rover launch. The trip which lasted
for about a month took the party to the
Bella Bella, and Namu districts where
good sport was obtained. C. W. Stan-
cliffe of Vancouver, jioned the party at
Swanson Bay and accompanied them.
All the members of the party are keen
hunters and greatly enjoyed the trip.
Mr. Boyd who is the holder of the golf
championship for the Troon Golf Course
in Scotland, is particularly impressed
with the country.

(Special to the Optimist)
Los Angeles, Oct. 6.���General Harrison Grey Otis, owner of the Times,

matter of the unloading of the steamer
Bannockburn the longshoremen were
not prevented by thier union from taking
out the last 45 rails from the ship's hold
on Saturday night.
The men wanted to finish the job
but Captain Dent instructed Captain

Chapleau   District   Devastated   and
Much Damage on the Lakes
(Special to ths Optimist)
Winnipeg, Oct. 4.���Great storms last
night cut off all communication with the
East. Most of the damage seems to
have been in the Chapleau district, but
only meagre reports are possible. The
indications are that the storms were
terrific on the lakes but so far no loss of
life has been reported.
Roy to Be Released
Montreal, Oct. 4.���(Special)���It is
jumorad that former bank president Roy

only meagre reports are possible. The
indications are that the storms were
terrific on the lakes but so far no loss of

Dawson Oct. 1.���Work on the Tread-
gold canal is progressing rapidly. Three
hundred men are employed on the canal
and on the pole line over which the
power will be conveyed from the power
house.
The pole line has been completed to
the Arlington hotel at the mouth of
Hunker. Telephone communications will
be established within a few days between the headquarters at this place,
and Dawson and the creeks. The work
of stringing the copper wire is to be
started at once.
A line of poles has been erected along
the canal, and telephones have been
put in at all the camps along that
stretch.
Electric lights will be put on each of
the poles to facilitate the work at night.
Two hundred m n are working on the
ditch and the power houses. Two steam
shovels are doing practically all the
digging. These shovels dig 240 to 300
yards of dirt per day in two ten-hour
shifts. The shovel at the upper end of
the line made a record of 800 feet of
ditch in forty hours. Four and one half
miles of the six mile ditch are completed, and the steam shovels will be
through with their work by the first
week in October. Timbers are on the
ground for the large pressure box and
the flood gates at the lower end of the
ditch. Work on this will be started as
soon as lumber can be cut at the mill
now being erected on the Klondike, just
across from the power house. This will
be ready in three or four days. Logs
for the mill are cut and on the grounds.
Excavztions for the concrete foundations of the power house are being
made with a steam scraper plant, and
are about completed. Cement is being
hauled at the present. Carpenters are
busy erecting offices and mess houses
at the power house.
It is expected that the power will be
truned on next May. Ten thousand
horsepower will be generated st first.
The ditch is twenty feet wide and six
feet deep. It is planned to put on a
small electric dredge after the water is
turned into the ditch and to deepen the
canal to nine teet. Thia can be done
without interfering with the flow of
water.
The water is taken from the Klondike,
twenty-five miles above the. power
house and brought through the ditch six
miles, which gives a (all of over 200
feet at the power house. There is more
than enough water to develop 20,000
horse power.
DO NGS OF ANGUS JOHNSTON
Who Arrived at the Police Station
Last Night in a Cab
Angus Johnston late last night got
filled up to the brim. The Sergeant
ordered him to walk, he said he'd rather
swim. There wasn't any swimming
room, the plankways they were dry.
But Angus he was wet inside, and said
he'd swim or fly. The Sergeant vainly
tried to make bold Angus walk, but
nothing doing! Angus lay and gurgled
in his talk. At last the Sergeant had to
call that famous "O. U. Hack!" And off
to jail went Angus J. stretched flat upon
his back. This morning he appeared
before the city magistrate, who asked
him why he came there in that chariot
of state. Poor Angus wept and wiped
his eyes and snivelled very sore. He
said he'd pay the damage and not do it
any more. The magistrate then fined
him there a Ave spot oi ten days, and
for the cab and costs he must a neat
three dollars raise. Poor Angus has no
cash, but well, the magistrate was fair.
He gave the patient thirty days to pay
up on the square,

SOME NEW EPIGRAMS
When Father Vaughan lectured in Toronto recently he won great popularity
by his brilliancy and philosophy. Some of the good things he said are worth repeating and they each have a moral:
"In France they are trying to.teach a moral law without a moral lawgiver.
The result is Hell.
"Let us remember as commercial men that it is better to give our workmen a
living wage today than to sweat them now and give them a palace when we are dead.
"Looking at the stars and loving music will not help you very much to fight
the passions.
"For man and woman to be joined, and then to shake their puny fists and say:
'Thy will may be increase, but we will not follow it,' that is constructive treason
against the will of God.
"Let us build up our home before we build the Empire.
"It matters little whether we agree with a man or not. We have to find out
whether he is straight. For example, there is the character of Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
Sir Charles Fitzpatrick, Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, Robert Laird Borden, and Sir
James Whitney, men of integrity.
"Any blooming idiot can be vicious, but it takes a hero to be good.
"A man is only a vote politically, only a purse in wealth, only a ticket when
he travels, and only a number in a hotel.
"King George comes to us, 'fresh as the sea breeze,' our Dreadnought King."

REPAIRS TO THE
PRINCESS MAY
WILL   RUN  TO   LARGE  SUM   OF
MONEY
Underwriters of England Astonished
at Amount of Bids���Will Cost Over
Hundred Thousand Dollars to Do
the Repairs.
The steamer Princess May will be
repaired at the British Columbia Marine Railway company's yards at Esquimalt, arrangements having been made
between the underwriters and the Esquimalt company early last week. The
Princess May has been towed back to
Esquimalt from the inner harbor and
work will be started at once. The
amount to be paid for the repair
to the steamer is not divulged, but
it is understood to be lower than the
amount of the tender submitted.
When tenders were invited for the
repairs to the steamer seven shipbuilding
firms submitted bids, which ranged
from $85,000, bid by the B. C. Marine Railway, to $143,000, asked by Hall
Bros, of Eagle Harbor, Two Victoria
firms, one Vancouver, three Seattle and
one Portland firm submitted bids.
When the amounts of the tenders
were cabled to the underwriters in
England the amounts were considered
excessive by the insurers and Captain
E. H. Logan, special agent of the London
Salvage Association, who is in Victoria
looking after the repairing of the steamer
and settling the dispute which has
arisen with regard to the Yucatan,
was instructed to enter into the best
arrangement he could. He met the
Bullen Company and an agreement
satisfactory to both repairers and under-,
writers was reached.
The stranding of the Princess May
will prove expensive to the underwriters who have already spent $35,-
000 in the salvage work and incidental
expense. She will cost the insurers
in the neighbrohood of $115,000 before she is returned to the owners.
About sixty plates are to be handled
by the B. C. Marine Railway Company, about two-thirds of them to be
removed, a new propeller bracket and
tail shaft is needed, many frames,
beams, floors, etc., and there is much
interior fitting to be restored.
PERSONAL
Young ladies of Prince Rupert, it is
whispered, are regretting Ihe fact that
H. F. G. Barnjum, of the G. T. P.
Engineering Department, is leaving for
Hazelton to take part with the rest of
this department's staff in the work of
extending the steel eastward. Hazelton
ladies will be happy about it.

most successful companies and those that are the most profitable to the

reasonable to business that Silver Cup
is to be the big mine of Northern British
Columbia and unless all signs fail the
Hazelton district will soon enter on a
period of great mining prosperity.

JEWS OBSERVE
THEIR NEW YEAR
HOW THE FESTIVAL IS KEPT
PRINCE RUPERT
IN
blowing the trumpet unto you."
"This blowing of the trumpet," says
Mr. Hoffman, "is symbolized in the
sounding of the Ram's Horn, that most
ancient and primitive form of trumpet
known to the Jewish nation. The
peculiar tuneless sound of the ram's
horn has a remarkable effect on Jews
wherever they hear it and they rally to
the sound all over the world.
"In my address on the eve of the
festival I told of a case during the
Spanish-American War in 1898 a young
Jewish bugler by imitating the peculiar
harsh note of the ram's horn on the bugle
gathered together all the members of
his own race in the regiment and together they observed the festival in
due season.
"The festival, originally one of simple
rejoicing, has owing to the presecution
and massacre of the Jews so often at
this season in various parts of the world,
come to be a season of prayer and
religious observance. It is also a time
of reconciliation as I explained in my
address. At this season we are supposed
to smooth over and get rid of all differences that may have arisen during the
past year between us and our fellowmen,
and to forgive any wrongs done us that
we may merit the forgiveness of God
for our own shortcomings after the
atonement ten days hence."
The Day of Atonement which falls
on October 13th concludes the festival
of the Jewish New Year. The word
atonement in its earliest sense of an
"at-one-ment" is peculiarly appropriate
to the spirit of the season as observed by
the Jews.

Vigorously Progressing���Big Movement in Stock..
Religiou. Ceremonial. Take Place in
Home of I. Director and Are Largely Attended by Number, of the
Jewi.h Race in the City.
The Jewish festival of the New Year
is now being observed in Prince Rupert,
as also wherever there is a community of
Jews throughout the world. The season
begins with the fiest day of the first
Tishvi according to the ancient calandar,
and fell on Monday evening at 6 p.m.
when a preparatory prayer service was
held in the house of I. Director as there
is no Jewish synagogue in the city.
There is no Rabbi for Prince Rupert
yet, but according to the Mosaic law any
Jewish male over thirteen years of age
may take part in the ceremonies of this
season. The first service was conducted
by H. Frome of Kitselas. The service
consisted of the offering of prayers, the
reading of the Scripture Scroll, a short
sermon by H. Hoffman with a response
by I. Soskey.
Next morning all the Jewish business
premises in the city were closed, and
services were held at 9 a.m. and continued till afternoon being resumed also
in the evening. Those taking leading
parts in these services were H. Simon, H.
Frome and M. Weinstein.
Today further services were held
beginning at 11 a.m., All the services
are largely attended by the Jews of
this city over forth being present regularly.
The principal and all important feature of the rites observed at these ceremonials is the sounding of the Ram's
Horn without which the ceremonies
would be meaningless.
To understand the importance of
this ancient usage one must refer to the
4_in .the. Old testament which gives
the authority for the observance of the j^WoudeT mines,
festival. Iu Numbers, 29th Chapter,
the first verse reads: "And in the seventh
month on the first day of the month ye
shall have an holy convocation. Ye
shall do no servile work.   It is a day of
tex<
News has been received by S. H. Harrison & Co., brokers of Prince Rupert
that the ore crushing mill at Stewart
for which everyone interested in Stewart
mining has been anxiously waiting has
been completed and has started running
This new crushing plant can handle
at present fifty tons of ore per day, and
is so built that it can be converted so as
to treat up to 100 tons of ore if need be,
that it will very soon be called upon to
exert its full power and fullest capacity.
At present everything is running smoothly with the plant which is giving entire
satisfaction and everyone is pleased with
the prospects of the district it serves,
The unfinished gaps in the McKenzie
and Mann wharf has now been completed
and it is now possible to walk from end
to end of the wharf. Rail track has been
laid along it for about 2000 feet and
rolling stock is expected to arrive every
day.
The mining equipment and plant at
Stewart is one of the most complete and
efficient recently installed. The concentrator and camp buildings are situated at the base of the mountain. Above
them extends for nearly 2500 feet the
aerial tramway reaching up to where the
three tunnels are cut into the mountain
side. There is a miner's camp higher
up the mountain side also.
The three tunnels by which excellent
ore is reached and got out are situated
fifty feet above each other. The ore is
of the first class consisting of pyrites
and galena with abundance of argentite
and native' silver present. Gold, silver
and lead ores are found, the principal
values being in silver. The three
tunnels on this ledge are respectively 200,
225, and 450 feet deep.
On the same ledge as the Portland
Canal Mining Co.'s and Stewart workings are the Main Reef, and Portland
Both of thoso properties
are being actively developed. Vigorous
work is in progress, and both mines are
expected in a little while to be putting
out large shipments. The Main Reef
Mine has in fact got quantities of ore
eady for shipment, and the Portland
Wonder has sent out a small shipment
of about a ton.
Heavy trading in the Portland Canal
Mining Co.'s shares is reported within
the last few days, and now that the
crusher is running further activity will
follow in these stocks.

Robber, or Cyclone!
Upon returning home from a neighbor's house where he had been spending
the evening, Mr. J. Ridley of Ninth
avenue, found that his shack had been
entered either by robbers or a cyclone.
Everything was topsy turvy and several
articles od value missing. However,
these were found strewn along the sidewalk a few yards away. Everything has
now been found.
No clue was discovered of the perpetrators of the deed and Mr. Ridley is
still wondering what happened during
his absebce.

Lieutenant-Governor Fraser
One of the most interesting and popular of Canadian public men was Hon.
D. C. Fraser, lieutenant-governor of
Nova Scotia, who died a few days ago,
says the Vancouver News Advertizer.
During the three terms that Mr. Fraser
served in the House of Commons he
was a conspicuous debater on the floor
of that assembly, and still more prominent as a platform campaigner. He
accompanied Sir Wilfrid Laurier when
the leader, then in opposition, made his
first western tour. Before his election
to the Commons, Mr. Fraser had for
some years been a member of the Nova
Scotia legislative council. He was a
member of the provincial administration so long ago as 1878, and again under Mr. Fielding's premiership ten years
later. After thirteen years in federal
politics, Mr. Fraser was appointed in
1904 to the Nova Scotia Supreme Court
bench, from which he retired in 1906
to become lieutenant-governor.

GONE TO ESSINGTON
Salvation Army's Progress in Prince
Rupert Pleases Staff
Ensign Johnstone and Captain Kerr
of the Salvation Army left the city this
afternoon to pay a visit of inspection to
the Salvation Army station at Port
Essington. They expect to return tonight.
Ensign Johnstone is highly pleased
with the. lively interest awakened in
the Army's work in Prince Rupert.
Crowds of from 70 to 125 strong gather
at the open air meetings, and there is
an ever increasing attendance.
Progress with the work of erecting
the new S. A. quarters and ci adel is
rapid and satisfactory. Ensign John*-
stone is arranging for a system of lighting
independent of the city's temporary
electric plant, as on inquiry he was
imformed by the city engineer that it
is doubtful whether (he city plant can
at first do more than light the streets,
while even if some light is available for
private use certain business houses
would have a prior claim on this.
But Ensign Johnstone has arranged
for a brillaint gasoline lighting plant
which will add much to the comfort and
good cheer of the citadel.
WORK ON NEW LINE
Two Gangs to Be Started on Telegraph Line From Here to Stewart
H. L. Phelan, son of the inspector
of the government telegraph line, has
been here for a few days making preparations for the building of the new
telegraph line from Ki sumkalum to
Stewart. The work is divided between
two parties, one of which is to start
from Stewart and work on to Goose bay,
and the other to start from the Skeena
and join with the Goose Bay party. W.
Blackstock has been engaged for the
Goose bay end, with ten men under
his charge, and J. Thome has a similar
outfit at the other end. Inspector
Phelan is expected on the Prince Rupert
tomorrow to start the work.
The government appropriation to put
in this branch of the telegraph line
was estimated at $25,000 but was cut
down to $20,000. This sum, it is believed, will be found to be inadequate
and an additional appropriation is to
be asked for.

meat from Mr. Wharton Judge Young
summed up the case briefly and very
sharply.
"After all," he said, "what is the use
of beating about the bush with it.
There is no evidence in my opinion, to
convict this man of theft. Why the
stuff is not worth stealing, and in any
case the woman admits having readily
trusted the man with the only article
worth anything in the whole bunch."
To the accused Judge Young said
sternly: "See here, Plant, there is not
sufficient evidence to convict you of
having stolen these jewels and you are
acquitted of this charge. But let me
tell you that you don't go out of this
court with any illuminated certificate of
character. I want to say this to you:
"This is the second time you have appeared before me. Don't let me see
you here again, that's all."
The judge ordered the jewels to be
handed to the woman whom he severely
censured. She will leave the city.
Frank Plant was detained on the second
charge against him of being a frequenter.
