.LDERMEN HAVE
A LITTLE SPAT
EADS   FAR   WORSE    THAN    IT
SOUNDED
Id. Hilditch Thought He Had A
Sensation to Spring���Laid a Trap
for Aid.  Pattullo and They  Both
Fell In.
A little spat between Aid. Pattullo and
Id. Hilditch lent a zest to the meeting
the council last night. When it was
1 over it was hard to say which of the
jntlemen enjoyed it most. On both
des it was conducted with good humor,
lough .some of the words may look
erible in print. In the end it showed
mt the huge bomb which Aid. Hilditch
irealeiied to throw at the council was
ily a bladder which went off with a
ing and faded out of sight when
ricked.
"Mr. Mayor, began Aid. Hilditch, "I
ive a serious matter to bring before
le council, affecting the conduct of
main aldermen. I am told that
ir: .un aldermen are breaking the law
\ this city. I think that of all others,
le members of this council should be
ireful to observe the law."
"Who are they'." demanded Aid.
tottullo.
"Aid. Pattullo for one, Aid. Lynch
t another," replied the speaker.
A look of amazement spread round,
pen the s|>eaker went on to explain.
It is in connection with the city rooming
ouse on Third avenue. The workmen
���are are dumping material without
ermission. 1 am told the property
| owned by a company in which Aid.
aitullo is interested." Laughter drown-
1 the rest of the speech.
"Well of all the pretty, cheap clap-
tap this ii the worst," gasped Aid.
Jattullo. "Thus is the smallest, paltriest
iing I ever heard of. If this is a joke
I Aid. Hilditch's I will take it in good
art, but if it is meant in seriousness,
can only say I am surprised that the
Herman should bring up a thing so
hildish."
"If all shareholders of companies
'ere to be held accountable for every
tt informed by companies they may
old slock in, it would be a pretty thing."
Unmented Aid. Naden.
Then Nemesis awoke with a start
i the person of acting Mayor Mobley.
I am obliged for Aid. Hilditch's vig-
���nce," he said, "but I happened to be
1 the City Hall yesterday when the
fhitect of the building came in and
I'l'hed for a permit to dump the ma-
trial."
Then for a parting shot Aid. Pattullo
���- "Perhaps Aid. Hilditch will see
Jw all lumber of his is removed from
N streets."
Th*. laugh which followed in which
P Aid. Hilditch joined shook any
fKwtion of ill feeling out o{ the episode.
IN TWO LAUNCHES
"ourner. and  P,,tor Attended  Island  Funeral  Yesterday
T��o launches in charge of Mr. Haney
the   Davis    boathouae   took the
��"eral "ar,y ot the late Charles Gyr
F* to Garden Island yesterday.   The
rt  service   at   the   graveside   was
poucted in English and German by
��� ft W, Kerr who accompanied the
,arty.
Against the Advice of City Engineer the Council Award
Grading Contracts to Mike Gurvitch.���Are Afraid that
if They Were to Pass Over the Lowest Tender
It Would Be a Dangerous Precedent
It is all sol tied for the grading con-
tiacts for sections D and G of Third
avenue and Mike Gurvitch is to get
to work and see if he can save the cicizens
$16,510. If he succeeds Gurvitch will
have upset the calculations of the city
engineer, and the opinions of most of
the city council. With the exception
of Aid. Hilditch all the council present
voted in favor of awarding the contracts
to Gurvitch, but thnt alderman held
to his convictions, and declined to vote
ID favor of Gurvitch.
"In trying to save the citizens $18,000
you may be committing them to a loss
of $36,000 before you are through," he
persisted. But the other aldermen
did not see it in that light.
"We hnve his check, and we will
have a twenty per cent hold back on
his monthly work. He would have to
lose $5,100 in thc first month and more
than that in any later month before
he could beat the council," declared
Aid. Barrow.
The chief consideration, however,
which led to Gurvitch getting the contract was the fear that to act otherwise
than to award it to the low��+it tenderer
would be to set up a precedent thnt
might pave the way in years to come for
possibilities of graft.
"The work in sections D and G cannot
be done for the money. This is my
opinion based on information received
while making the progress reports on
other contracts," reported the engineer.
Aid. Pattullo promptly moved that
the lowest tenderers be accepted saying,
"If the man is willing to do the work
in spite of the engineer's report he
should have the contract. He might
be told of the engineer's report and if
willing to go on and take the responsibility he should be allowed to. Perhaps
like the man at Beach avenue who took
a contract at a low figure, he may yet
prove that he knows a good deal more
about it than the other fellows."
Aid. Lynch was equally emphatic.
"I do not see that we can do anything
else," he said. "The man has offered
to do the work; we have hia check. It
is the usual business method. He gives
us financial security.    It is not fair to
I tell the man he does not know what he
is figuring on. It might look as if we
were only letting contracts to our
business friends; that someone must
have a 'stand in' to get a job. The man
has not been heard from, so presumably
| he is willing to go on and wants the job."
Aid. Hilditch remained unappeased.
"It may be like the job that cost the
Provincial Government twice as much
to complete after the lowest tenderer,"
he said. "You say it will stive two
sections of No. 1 $18,000, but what if
it costs the city $.'16,000 later on to
finish. Who will pay then? For my
part 1 don't believe the man can finish
the contract bo I will not vote to give
it to him."
"My friend's attitude," said Aid.
Pattullo rising as Aid. Hilditch sat
down, "reminds me of Anthony Hope's
definition of economy. 'Economy is
doing without something that we do
want, in order that we may get something that we don't want.' Here is
a clear saving of $18,000, yet Aid.
Hilditch would throw it away for fear
of losing $36,000. Even if we did lose
$18,000 by it, it would be cheaper
in the end thnn establishing I precedent
that might cost the city $180,000 later
on."
Aldermen NHeri and Barrow both
agreed thnt in the fact- of Gurvitch's
offer the city must accept his tender
so the motion was passed accepting the
tender and ordering the city solicitor
to draw' up the contract and hnve "the
seal of the city duly affixed thereto."

Roosevelt and Taft  Are Equally Glum.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Nov. 11.���The Democratic
victories are more sweeping than at first
reported. Wluii the whole returns were
it in was seen that in the im.se of representatives the Democrats will have
the substantial working majority of
eighty-five, which is the first time the
party has had such a majority in the
history of the country. The only solace
left the Republicans is a majority of four
in the senate.
Out of twenty-five districts in Chicago
the Democrats captured twelve Congressmen. Lee Brown was among the winners.
The Socialists elected Victor Berger
to congress from the Fifth Wisconsin
district.
The venerable and popular senator
Chauncey Depew was thrown down hard
in New York state.
Tariff-Bill Payne, who was a great
lobbyist before he went to congress,
managed to secure re-election by a very
slight majority.
Nicholas I,ongworth, the son-in-law
of Roosevelt, w as re-elected.
The entire state of Washington went
Republican. Oregon voted against local
option, the western part of the stale
lending.
Governor Dix of New York polled his
greatest majority in Roosevelt's own
district. Roosevelt has nothing to say
in regard to the results of the elections
in his state, but he admits the towns he
] visited and addressed all voted for Dix. i
Presidenl Taft is also uncommunicative.
In   San   Francisco  Johnson   is  safely |
elected.
Three   women   were   elected   to   the
legislature from Denver districts on   lhe
Democratic ticket and one on thc Re-,
puhlicnn ticket.
The   suffragettes are lo hold a big '
celebration  here this evening in honor
of the victories achieved by the women of
the state of Washington.
VANCOUVER   FIRM   INTERESTED
May Take Over New Warehouse on
Second Avenue
The new warehouse which is now under
construction for R. McConnell of Vancouver, on Second avenue may possibly
be taken over by a Vancouver firm.
Mr. McConnell is at Vancouver at
present arranging negotiation*.
Last Shift of Steel
The last shift of one and a half miles
of steel rails, for the completion of the
first hundred miles of the railway from
this city, went out on the train yesterday morning. This will take the big
track laying machine less than a day
to put on place, and there will be nothing
left but the ballasting. This leaves in
the yards here seventeen thousand
tons of rails, or practically one hundred
and thirty miles of single track, nearly
sufficient for the second section to
Hazelton, all of which will be laid this
winter.
R. S. Ross Says Coodbye
R. S. Ross, who for some years has
been a member of the Bank of Commerce
staff, left last night for Vancouver to
report for an advance in one of the
branches in the south. "Mickey" as
he was known by the boys leaves a host
of friends in Prince Ru|>ert. Before
leaving last evening he was presented
with a handsome case of pipes by the
members of the Wanderers' Club of
which organization Mr. Ross was a
director. His place in the cage at the
local bank is being taken by Mr. Pit-
cairn.
Dr. J. J. McNeill returned on the
Prince Rupert from Vancouver, where
he had been conducting an operation
at the General Hospital.
Il was a council, tired, but determined
to do its duty which started at 9: 15
last night to tackle the new city street
by-law.
"The city solicitor says it is a most
important by-law and should be rushed
through." said City Clerk Woods, as
he took up the big roll of foolscap and
looked al the clock.
Everyone else turned to look at the
clock also and an audible s.gh went
up. It is no fun being a City Kathei.
Someone suggested sending the by-law
to the streets committee.
"I move we proceed to form a committee of the whole and read the by-law,"
said a voice.
"Misery loves company," <iuoted Aid.
Pattullo and for this merry quip Acting
Mayor Mobley nominated him to fill
thc chair.
Clause by clause the chairman reeled
off the by-law. It seemed tc prohibit
everything that a healthy boy would
like to do.
There must be no racing or jostling
on thc streets, no climbing of trees or
telegraph poles, no coasting or tobogganing, no playing of ball or games.
"A hardship to prevent the kids from
coasting on the sreets in winter," said
Aid. Naden, "but it's a dangerous
practice. It will save many a mother's
fears if we prohibit it."
Horse-aTuding, driving without reins,
galloping or driving at an immoderate
rate of speed were among thc other
things prohibited.
"But what is an immoderate speed?"
inquired Aid. Hilditch, the interrogation point of the council. "Why," he
wnet on, "I saw one of your Worship's
own horses the other day going along at
an immoderate i|>eed. It might have
been right on a 66-ft. roadway it was
too fast for a 16-ft plankwalk."
"I've sold that horse since," said
Acting Mayor Mobley. and the council
hiughed.
All kinds of wheeled vehicles and
pushcarts were prohibited from using
tlip sidewalks under a penalty not exceeding $100.
"That includes baby carriages then,"
remarked Aid. Naden.
"Surely not," said Chairman Pattullo,
who is a city father in a double sense.
"Baby carriages ought to be allowed
on the sidewalks so long as they have
babies in," persisted Aid. Naden.
"Of course they should. We ought
to give them a bonus in addition," said
Aid. Pattullo who is a loyal supporcr
of the Stork administration.
So in the end a special clause was
inserted in the interests of the mothers
and babies of Prince Rupert for all
time to come conferring on their baby
carriages the freedom of the city's
sidewnlks.
It was near the end of the meeting that
the heaviest blow came���one which
means that every able bodied householder in Prince Rupert, aldermen included, will have to rise up early in the

The Deadly Hobble Skirt
Not content with having caused the
i deaths of several of its devotees, the
! hobble skirt has also caused the deaths
' of two men.    Both of the latter died
las a result of laughing at jokes about
the skirt.    The most recent victim is
i Edward Bossingham, a seventy year old
I tailor of Eagle, Wisconsin, who laughed
himself to death last Friday after hearing
his daughter read an article which aaid
that following the hobble skirt, women
would wear rings in their noses.
Previously a prominent jurist died of
apoplexy from laughing over a statement that a "woman in a hobble skirt
reminded a man of a giraffe in a barrel
hoop."
The Moat Attractive Age
Some man has said���and many have

Prompt Delivery

A Square Deal
Man's most self-sacrificing efforts are
not always appreciated. A Chicago
man broke into a millinery store and
stole a $40 hat. When he took it home
his wife refused to wear it as it was a
last season's model.
Miss Ellen Terry candidly admits
that she has come to America in pursuit of the Almighty dollar. In the
merry chase Miss Terry will not be
lonesome at any stage of the race, as
99 per cent, of the natives are engaged
in the same work.
It is proposed to erect an Empire
memorial to the late Florence Nightingale. It ia a good proposal and ought
to meet with universal approbation.
We assume the memorial would take
the shape of something directly associated
with the work to which that noble lady
consecrated her life.

Some Household Hints
Iodine stains on woodwork should be
removed at once, as they make an ugly
spot. Soak up with blotting paper, then
rub the spot with a soft cloth moistened
in camphor.
A paste of almond meal and peroxide
spread on the inside of the gloves will
bleach the hands. Almond oil and rice
powder used in the same manner will
soften the hands.
When you are making an omelette
that requires bread crumbs for thickening, and you have none handy, try using
a slightly larger amount of any of the
flaked breakfast foods.
To clean white felt hats put some
borax in a piece of cheese cloth and clean
thc hat with it, rubbing quite hard,
then brush off with a clean brush. If
it is not then clean, repeat the process.
As housecleaning time approaches do
not forget the use of dampened cloths
in furniture cleaning. Dust is easily
removed in this way without streaking
woodwork or filling lungs.
To beat furniture put damp unlinty
cloths over the upholstered parts and
1 a  woman   who  had  been   blind  since
I infancy,    has   been   successfully   per-
' formed   in   Philadelphia.     It   will   be
I several weeks before it can be deter-
I mined  definitely  whether  the  restrration  of sight  will   be  permanent,   but
at   present,   physicians   say,   all   indi-
' cations point  to success.    The cornea
of the young woman's eye���the transparent   film  which  covers  the   iris  or
' pupil���had   become   clouded    through
: disease,   and   was   absoultely   opaque.
The only  possible  way  iu  which   her
sight  could be restored  was to cut a
: hole in the cornea, and  in that  way
I remove the curtain that was obstruct-
I ing her vision.   To do this it was   necessary   to   find   some   transparent   tissue  that   would   replace  the   diseased
cornea   removed.     When   the   young
man was brought in w.th the sight ol
one   eye    permanently   lost,   although
sections of the cornea were uninjuied,
Dr. Fox conceived the idea of the transfer
which has been performed.

Within the last year ten mining
properties in the vicinity of Hazelton
have been bonded by outside capital
for sums varyuig from $15,000 to $60,-
000, says the Omineca Herald, and in all
cases substantial payments have been
made as a guarantee of good faith.
Angus Stewart and A. L. McHugh have
now taken over four claims from Sam.
Long and Geo. McBain for $35,000,
making a cash payment of $3,500 at the
time of signing papers.
The claims were staked in August
of this year and have, consequently,
been held by the locators less than ninety
days. The discovery of the croppings
was largely accidental and one more
instance of the luck that surrounds
the prospector's calling. McBain and
Long were engaged in building a bridge
across Salmon creek for the B. C. government when the big strike was made
on Four Mile hill.
When their bridge contract was completed and before leaving they concluded to spend one day on the hill,
taking what they considered a long
chance. That day they found enough
Moat to justify them in looking closer
and camp was moved to the hill, less
than five miles from town, and prospecting commenced in earnest. Within
the week, four veins, varying in width
from one to four feet, had been found,
and two groups of claims were staked.
One of the veins was found through an
upturned tree having a piece of galena,
not larger than a walnut, held in the
roots. This ledge was uncovered by
digging a trench up the hill, encountering it in less than twenty feet.
Since the claims were staked the
owners have worked almost continuously
and they have ore showing in many
different places along the veins.
From Hazelton the properties are
about four and a half miles distant in a
direction almost due north, and about
two miles from the Skeena.

He wants a hat that will fit a head of

He wants a square set of men to work

THAT PARTNERSHIP ILLUSTRATION
Such a harvest of illustrations without application and analogies without
bearing have been used in discussing the question of the Grand Trunk Pacific
assessment, that it is little wonder the issue is befogged in the minds of some of
our citizens.
The simple fact is, that the railway company, following the policy of all railway companies, is anxious to get off with as little taxation as possible. No matter
what the judgment of the assessor, a dispute was inevitable.
One nf the ablest of the apologists for the company is Hon. Richard McBride.
Because of his office, his ability, and his knowledge of the real state of affairs a
great responsibility is laid upon him to present the issues fairly. Without impugning
Hon. Mr. McHride's own description of himself as a friend of both parlies anxious
to see a settlement brought aliout, it is quite in order to point out a few of the
inexactitudes in his statement of the situation before the city council.
In the lirst place it was incorrect to liken the situation to a quarrel between
partners. The city and the railway company are not partners in the work of the
city, neither is there a quarrel in progress. In so far us the company owns lands
within the city limits it is a part of the city, but no more of a partner than any
other property owner. Its case differs from that of any other property owner who
thinks he may be over assessed, only in the amount involved. Any other property
owner who ignored the notice to attend the Court of Revision would scarcely
look for special treatment. A more honest way would have been to state the case
as it is, as being an objection on the part of the railway company to pay its due
and legal assessments.
But suppose that the railway company and the city stood in the relation of
partners, what kind of a partnership would it be where the one partner stood off
and sulked because the other partner refused to pay all the expenses of the business
out of his own share of the profits. The idea of a partnership involves the idea
of a mutual sharing of the expenses as well as of the profits.
The Hon. Richard McBride's attempted chiding of the City Fathers is one
that many citizens feel was not warranted by the facts.

COLONIZATION QUESTIONS
In regard tu the ninety thousand acres of government farming land which
Mr. Boss of this city, spent so long a time in locating in the Naas valley and recently
transferred to Norton Gritlith, British member of parliament for Wednesbury,
the Victoria Times says:
"That Norton Urifliths or any other man should have been able to acquire
large holdings of land without any governemnt regulations in regard to settlement
is the severest condemnation of the present system of handling lands that could
have been made. There may be some excuse for granting tracts under certain
arrangements in regard to colonization, but there is absolutely no excuse for selling
large tracts to any person or group of persons to hold until they are able to obtain
higher prices."
Our contemporary is right in pointing out that the system is bad when such
lands are sold by the government to-be held until high prices can be obtained for
them. But in the case al issue the lands purchased are for colonization purposes
and the colonists are said to be ready to go on the lantl at once. Mr. Griffith stated
while in Vancouver that he was looking for just such a plot of land, and that he
intended to colonize it immediately with pwpla from his own constituency. His
intentions are in line with those for which Mr. Ellison, a member of the cabinet,
has recently gone to England. Since Mr. Griffith has returned home, and even
before the first payment was made to the government on this Naas valley land,
he went to work to secure his colonists. His scheme is calculated to "make the
wilderness to smile and to blossom as the rose." Not only does he purpose the cultivation of the soil but also the establishment from time lo time of industries that
will assist in making the community self supporting. He will bring nail makers
from Tipton, chain makers from another part of his constituency, nnd artisans
and farmers from Wednesbury. Such a nest of industries will be a valuable tributary to the trade of I'rince Rupert. It means the building up of a district that
but for lhe enterprise of Mr. Griffith might have lain undeveloped for many years.
Danger may arise, however, if the government's action in the present case is used
as a precedent lo hand over lands to men of a different type than Mr. Norton
Griffiths.

Interviewed by a Province reporter
immediately upon his return from the
trip to Prince Rupert, Premier McBride
expressed his surprise at the substantial
marks of improvement he found here.
In the course of this interview he said:
"Since I was in Prince Rupert, about
15 months ago, the city has more than
doubled in population while general
improvements have increased in, perhaps, still greater proportion. The
buildings erected and in course of construction are for the most part large
and substantial commercial blocks.
Prominent among them is a cement and
steel building which will be used by the
Bank of Montreal. The residential
sections of the town are also receiving
attention and some very fine homes are
being built. For the most part the sites
provide the homes with perfect views
of the harbor and surrounding country.
"The municipality is undertaking
some extensive and costly local improvements. I understand that for
the present they will be confined to
the business streets of the city, and
will involve the expenditure of upwards
of $400,000. The nature of the improvements for the most part consist
of heavy rock cuts and fills.   ��
"At Prince Rupert I was waited on
by the school trustees. The school of
four rooms is well filled with children
and provision is being made for the
appointment of a fifth teacher. The
new school building is about completed
under government supervision and thc
trustees report that its eight rooms
will likely be filled within the next
few months. From what I saw I was
readily convinced that the educational
affairs of Prince Rupert are in the
hands of most capable trustees. The
new school building is a large and
commodious edifice occupying one of
the most commanding positions in the
city.
"I return from the north with a
still greater faith in the future of that
part of British Columbia. I met many
people from the interior of the province
and my visit convinced me of the success
of the wealthy and potential part of
British Columbia which lays to the
north.
"There can be no question as to the
future of Prince Rupert. It stands as
a northern commercial center and with
the development of the fisheries, lands,
mines, and the future of the surrounding
country when the G. T. P. railway is
completed, there can be no doubt of its
rapid growth and prominence."

Crippen, for whose murder Dr. Hawley
H. Crippen is sentenced to be hanged on

to be alive in this country by Francis
Tracy Tobin, a lawyer of this city, in
an interview with the Philadelphia
Press today. Mr. Tobin declares he
has received letters from those living
here who have seen her, and says he
knows that "she is living, and is hiding
in this country not far from Chicago."
"She was first seen in San Francisco
at the time Dr. Crippen was first being
sought by the British police, charged
with her murder," Mr. Tobin's statement continues. "If anything is going
to be done, we had better make haste.
There is very little time to spare now.
The proper means to pursue is at once
to get in touch with the secretary of
state at Washington and set before
him the facts in my possession. Then
we want to get him to cable the American ambassador at the Court of St.
James, who in turn will lay the case
before thc home secretary and induce
him to stay or commute thc sentence
pending our investigation."
SACRED CONCERT SUNDAY
By Gray's Orchestra in Phenlx Theatre Free
At half past three on Sunday afternoon a sacred concert will be given by
Gray's orchestra under the auspices of
the Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary in the
Phenix theatre. Admission is free and
everybody is invited. There will be a
splendid program and the collection
will be devoted to the Hospital Fund.
Religion would be a tame affair to
many but for the chance to fight their
friends in the cause of truth.
Second avenue is getting to look quite
a street now over towards McBride
street, and the work of removing the
big bluff at Fifth street is making steady
progress.
S. P. McMordie is starting to fill now
at the fuccr of Sixth street, and two lines
of trolley rails are being laid there to
dump the stuff. So far, the busy crossing
al the foot of Sixth street is not seriously
obstructed by the grading operations,
but as these proceed it will be necessary
to make some plan for the convenience
of the many citizens using this busy
centre of traffic. As Mr. McMordie's
contract provides for the lifting of the
plankways as required for th" work of
grading, and the relaying of them after
grading is complete, the city will make
arrangements for providing means of
access to and fro for the citizens.
Haevy blasts well-blanketed are rapidly reducing thc rocky bluff at Eighth
street where R. A. McMordie's men are
engaged. The effect of the blasting is
being watched with interest by the
residents in this neighborhood, and thc
shrill warning of the derrick engine
whistle has become quite a feature of
the day's work in this end of town.
Further over at the junction the
bluff is being attacked effectively in the
rear, and good progress is being made,
While S. H. Watson's contract between
the Junction and Morse Creek which
was the first started, is pretty sure also
to be first finished. The steam drills
used here have hastened the blasting,
and the men are well into the thick of the
biggest rock mass to be tackled.

LOTS OF COPPER
ON THE ISLAND
MANY CLAIMS EXAMINED BY AN
EXPERT
Copper Depoiita on Moresby of Immense Advantage to Province, and
Graham Island Has Beds of Fine
Coking Coal for Smelter.
Kolson, Nov. 6.���"I am thoroughly
conv'need that Moresby island is practically a reservoir of low grade copper
ores," said S. S. Fowler upon his return from a visit to the Queen Charlotte islands for the purpose of reporting upon a group of copper claims.
"The many claims I examined showed
quantities of copper ore, chiefly of a
low grade, though in some instances
there are deposits of bornite and peacock copper ore of a much higher
value. These latter bodies of ore, however, are of relatively little importance
compared with the main deposits of
pyritic copper ore.
"I think that the value of the Queen
Charlotte islands copper deposits will
in the future be developed, but at present it appears likely this result must
ultimately be achieved by the reduction of the ores on the spot by means
of the coking coal of Graham island.
"I am very well pleased with the
result of my visit," continued Mr. Fowler, "and consider that the development
of the copper deposits of Moresby island
will be of enormous advantage to the
province of British Columbia."

New York, Nov. 7.���Declaring himself a French gentleman in America
(or the love of sportmanship, Albert
LeBlanc, the aviator, declined to pass
any criticisms on the Aero Club of
America's management of the international aviation meet, when sailing
today on the French liner La Provence. Pierre Gasnier, president of
the Aero Club of Paris, and Albert C.
Trianca, a member of the International Aeronautical School, were leas
reticent in expressing disappointment
in what they termed short-seeings
among those who managed the (Tying
events at Belmont Park.
"The Aero Club should be ripped
from tcp to bottom and then rebuilt,"
declared Trianca, a friend ot LeBlanc.
sailing on lhe same ship. LeBlanc
sailed with court plaster over his right
eye as an evidence of the injury sustained
in thc fall that lost him the international speed content for the Gordon
Bennett Cup, after he had flown at a
greater speed than any of his competitors and was within a single lap
of finishing.
"Observe," exclaimed an officer o(
the ship, "LeBlanc sailing away wounded
and not a member of the Aero Club
here to see him off. They met him
when he came in, but no one was here
to say au revoir after his magnificent
flight and his injury."

"Ya���as, I reckon he is," said the old

"You should always write as if you

"It's impossible," replied the implu-

"I'm rather a poor hunter," said the

Sidewalks for Second Avenue
In order to facilitate the traffic on
Second avenue during the grading
iiji.-rut tens between Sixth and Eighth
streeU, the council last night authorized
the city engineer to build a 16-ft. plank
sidewalk on each side of the road, wide
'enough to allow carls to travel along.
This arrangement was decided upon
as being cheaper and more a lasting
improvement than Contractor McMordie's plan of keeping the street o|>en at
an extra cost of $1200.
The launch Knox left yesterday for
the Nyosa Gulf, Portland Canal, with
Mr. Dave Jenkins of Seattle who It is
understood, in to conduct some mining
investigations in that district. Mr. K.
Luty with Mrs. Luty accompanied him,
Mr. Luty being in charge of the launch.
It is expected that the trip will occupy
altogether a period of about ten days.

the council  last  night  decided to tax
1 the corner lou at Ninth avenue and
McBride    for   the    grading   improve-
; menU,  60  per cent on each frontage.
i The council agreed that this was a more
equitable way than the present method
of 100 per cent on the avenue and 50
per cent on the street.   The matter was
j brought up by Aid. Lynch.

Never No More
A respectable sort of fellow named
Harry Emerson answered to the charge
of having been drunk last night, with
considerable contrition in the police
court this morning. He said he would
not do it again, and hastened off gladly
to get the money for his $5 fine and
costs.
Victoria, Nov. 7.���F. Kermode, curator of the provincial museum, has
just returned from a month's trip to
Queen Charlotte Islands where he
went in search of specimens of the
Rangifer Dawsoni, a rare species of
caribou known to exist on these islands.
A hard luck story and a few bones are
about all Mr. Kermode has to show
for hi,s journey. He saw nothing of
the elusive caribou. Though he sought
diligently he did not find. He is, however, convinced of the continued existence of the animal in question and
proposes to go on another quest when
opportunity offers.
"We spent our time," said Mr. Kermode today, "mostly on the west coast
of Virago Sound where traces of these
animals have been found in the past.
We saw tracks of two of them but these
tracks found were several weeks old and
of the animals themselves we obtained
no sight.
"The existence of this particular
species of caribou was first reported
in 1882 and a description was prepared
by Mr. Ernest Thompson-Seton from
rather scanty materials as all he had to
rely upon was a fragment of skull and
one horn, together with a description of
the skin given by a gentleman who had
seen it. From this data Mr. Thompson-
Seton felt warranted in concluding that
the caribou was of a hitherto unknown
species.
"Some traces of the animal were
next obtained in February, 1906, by
Commander Hunt and Lieutenant Hunt
of H. M. S. Shearwater who visited
Queen Charlotte Islands for the purpose
of making a search. They saw tracks
and droppings and picked up a shed
antler but did not catch sight of their
quarry.
"In November, 1908, some Indians
hunters were more successful. They
killed three of these caribou and brought
in the skins as conclusive evidence of
their story. These skins were obtained
for the provincial museum but are not
in good condition for mounting as the
Indians did not know how to prepare
them for this purpose and, I suppose,
were not much interested anyway.
"During our trip Mr. G. Pitten-
drjgh, who was with me, and I not
only saw the tracks of which I have
spoken, but we found the skeletons
of the three caribou killed by the Indians in 1908 and brought back the big
bones to be used in the mounting of the
skins, if possible."
Mr. Kermode is inclined to the opinion that this rare species of caribou
is indigenous to Queen Charlotte Islands, at any rate it is difficult to understand how the animals could have
arrived there unless they came in the
far- l days when the islands were
connected with the continent. The
nearest mainland is now forty miles
distant, which would preclude the idea
of swimming, even if the caribou were a
frequenter of the coast, which he is not.
How many of them may still remain
alive on the island is doubtful but they
are certainly very scarce. "I am sure
there were two of them at least," said
Mr. Kermode, "because we saw the
tracks of two."
