Government will at once order
the paying over to the Grand
Trunk Pacific a sum of $2,000,000
as a subsidy towards the construction of its proposed dry dock
at Prince Rupert,
The dock will be of what iB
known as second class construction, and will receive a subsidy
of three and a half per cent, for
twenty-five years.

JAP PLOT DISCOVERED
TO BLOW UP U. S. SHIPS
Troops at Manilla Searching for Dynamite in Japanese
Residences���Warships Were To Be Blown Up On
Declaration of Hostilities���Secret Got Out
f
ON
ODY
The Indemnity By-law was re-considered, and passed its third reading at
last night's city council meeting.
(Special to the OptimiBt)
Manila, Dec. 28.���The American secret service have discovered what they
believe to be a great Japanese plot to
destroy American warships in the harbor
here by the placing of  a mine.    The
secret service men have been at work
on the plot for a long time, and at last
have unearthed it.   Although the evidence of it has been carefully kept from
the public for fear of panic or racial
feud   the  story  has   gained   currency
through a leakage in official circles.
Tracing the Dynamite
Large   stores  of   dynamite  are   believed to be stored in the residences of
the Japs living in the city and in order
to facilitate the tracing of it the military
corps have been called out by the city
officials.   The prevalent opinion is that
the mine was to be fired immediately
the two countries declared hostilities.
To Blow Up Warships
The mine was to be placed in the
harbor at such a point that the warships
riding at anchor there would surely
have been destroyed. The whole town
is in a state of high tension over the
discovery.
Officials Are Reticent
The government officials were approached with a request to state their
opinion upon the matter but they
denied all knowledge of the plot. In
spite of this denial however it is generally
credited. In semi-official circles the
report of the plot has caused a great
sensation. Every effort iB being made
however, to keep the particulars of the
matter from leaking out.

After a long discussion, in which the i    Alderman  I'aUullo
council   voted   down   the   attempt   of what it was.

(���Special to the Optimiat)
Paris, Dec. 28.���Aviation claimed two
otable devotees yeaterday in the perms of Marquis Paula and Alex Laffon
ho were killed instantly yeaterday aa
I result of a fall of two hundred feet.
!They were just atwting upon their trip
Irom Paris to Brtwela in the one plane.
A great crowd had aaaembled to witness
the start and to applaud the daring
aviators. I
As they aoared into the air with the
race of a bird the crowd cheered with
delight but their cheers froze upon their
lips. When the plane had reached an
altitude of two hundred feet it was
seen to flutter momentarily and then to
dive precipitately towards the earth.
The stay of one wing had given way
thus upsetting the gravity of the
machine. ^^p^_
Laffon fell not more than a few feet
from where hia wife waa standing
petrified with horror at the Bight. His
head was horribly crushed and the
impact of his contact with the earth
drove his legs into his body. Pau'��
fell upon his head and was also killed
instantaneously. It waa one of the
cruellest tragedies ever witneased. Madame Laffon had to be led away from the
scene by friends.
of License Commissioners, the liquor
���cen*: by-law was successfully passed
iu third reading last night.
Two Knotty Clauses
Most of the argument centered round
clauses 37 and 49.   The former removes

SheUr to cut off a mans.cense

demeanor: the latter provides^forth,
right of a police officer to enter a P.v��te
dwelling in search of Imuor. The feeling
of the council waa that it was a dangu*
ou.  power   *ith   which  to  invest   an
make the by-law harmon.te with the
Provincial Act.
Said It Waa IH��f*'
linomy,    id.....
"Then I wouldn't give much for your
common intelligence," said Alderman
Pattullo, to which Alderman Hilditch
simply suid, "Thank you."
The Council'a By-law
Again Alderman Hilditch got it into
his head that the city solicitor,  Mr.
Williams, who was present was trying
to force the by-law highhandedly upon
the city.
"It is not my by-law," explained Mr,
Williams. "It is the council's by-law."
"Who is the father of this by-law?"
demanded Alderman Hilditch in a voice
like a clergyman at a christening.
"I am!" declared Alderman Mobley.
"Oh,"  said   Alderman   Hilditch,  "I
didn't know."
Soma More Plain-speaking
Expressing himself against thc granting of arbitrary powers to the License
Commissioners regarding the withholding
or cancelling of licenses Alderman
Pattullo came in for Alderman Hilditch's
"That's evident too," retorted Alderman Pattullo.
Wanted Votes Recorded
Voting against  the third reading of
the by-law on the  ground that there
were two clauses in it of which he did
not approve. Alderman Hilditch wished
his vote recorded.    So did Alderman
Smith who also objected to these clauses.
But Alderman Naden declared that
this procedure was totally contrary to
parliamentary   usage   since   the   vote
was tak*>n in committee.   Votes against
the third reading of the by-law as a
whole might  be recorded  not  nga'nst
particular clauses.
Mayor Stork is considering the
matter and will give his view at next
council meeting.
No Sunday Dinner Beer

discussion of thc various clauses  was

Woman's Changing Physique
That the physical type of womanhood
has undergone a tremendous change in
the short space of twenty years and is
approaching that of the opposite sex
is the belief of Dr. Dudley Allen Sargent,
director of the Sargent and Harvard
gymnasiums in Cambridge, who is
recognized as one of the foremost
authorities of the day on the physical
development of women.
Twenty years ago according to Dr.
Sargent's statements, woman's ultra-
feminine characteristics���small waist,
large hips, small feet, etc.���were overdeveloped, and she was the positive
antithesis of man in physical proportions. Today her physique has become
revolutionized, he says, and already
approximates that of the other sex.
This great evolution has taken place,
says Dr. Sargent, since 1890.
"Since that time woman's physique
has been thoroughly made over. It
is approximating that of man. The
sloping shoulders of her grandmother's
time have diaappeared. They are no
longer in fashion. They are no longer
desired. In their place we find well-
knit, athletic shoulders���broad ones.
Her back, likewise, is better developed.
Her hips, on the other hand, are not
so large as they once were. The entire
pelvic region has decreased in size,
and the result has been an enlargement
of the waist. The small waiat is a
thing of the past.
"Her neck is thicker and more muscular; her limbs more smoothly developed; her hands and feet are larger.
In every respect of which we in making
measurements of many women daily
take note, the women of today is getting
to be more like man. Her chest has been
said to be flatter. I should hardly
wish to endorse that opinion. It is
true, however, that her chest may appear flatter, because, I am glad to say,
the corset which formerly forced it
upward, has of late been somewhat
modified.
"It is this modification of the corset
which is responsible for the betterment
of woman's figure. The tightly laced
corset is no longer in style, but seems
to be replaced by the corset waist.
Thus both the upper and lower parts
of the trunk have more room. The
chest is therefore larger and better
developed.
"The  modification   of  the  corset,"
Dr. Sargent says, "is one reason for the
change in woman's physique. Another
reason is that within the last twenty
years women have done more in the
way of athletics than they did formerly. Golf, tennis, running and swimming have done much to improvo
woman's physical development. Being
the sports which one naturally takes t o
be mascuilne, they have the inevitable
result of making those who indulge in
them more like men.
"For it is a rule to which one may
take few exceptions that if a man
devotes himself to the activities of a
woman, or if a woman devotes herself
to the activities of a man, there is bound
to be a loss of sex. And it must be
admitted that is one of the tendencies
of our time. It is a result of commercialism. We find a great. many
woman do work which a man ought to
do, and vice versa.
"This approximation of man's physique is, from an anthropological point
of view, a bad thing. It ia to be hoped
that men and women will not grow
to be more alike than they are today.
The same may be said of men. From
the overdeveloped Sandow, man has
changed to the effeminate and the
foppish being. The assimilation ot the
sexes by each other ia a possibility to be
decried."

Insure Happiness for Your Child
How important it is that the child
should hear and see and be taught only
that which will make for beauty and
for truth, for loveliness and grandeur!
The minds of children are like sensitive
photographic plates, recording every
thought or suggestion to which they
are exposed. These things make up the
character and determine the future
possibilities, says Orison Sweet Marden
in Success Magazine.
If you would encourage your child
and help him to make the most of himself, inject bright, hopeful, optimistic,
helpful, unselfish pictures into his atmosphere. To stimulate and inspire his
confidence and unselfishness means
growth, success and happiness for him
in his future years, while the opposite
practice may mean failure and misery.
Keep the child's mind full of harmony, of truth, and there will be no
room for discord, for error.
Embroidery for Girls
Girls who are fond of embroidery and
are in search of original ideas for designs
will be able to find a great many interesting and quaint patterns suitable to
different sorts of embroidery upon the
old china pieces which are decorated
in the beautiful old colors that have
long been fashionable for cross stitch and
all other forms of embroidery. A number of embroiderers who accomplish
really remarkable pieces of work and
who look upon embroidery as one of the
fine arts have secured charming results
by copying the old china patterns and
are enthusiastic over the idea which
offers opportunities for such a wide
variety in designs and coloring.
One of the most interesting features of
this copying from old china is the individual quality that may be had by using
the old family pieces of distinction and
beauty for this purpose. Those who are
skilled in making the stamped or drawn
patterns upon the material to be embroidered may do the transferring of the
pattern themselves, while for the less
skillful the services of a professional
embroidery designer can be had. The
pattern may be traced or copied, according to whether it is exactly fitted to
the purpose fro which it ia to be used.

WANTED-A GENERAL MANAGER
That old Swedish chancellor who sent his son out into the world with the
words, "Go, my son, and see with how little wisdom the world is governed," was
a keen observer. Upon the care and management of municipalities and nations
we usually expend much less trained wisdom than upon the care and management of even second-rate financial and commercial institutions. In fact, the chief
prerequisite for running for Mayor or Parliament seems to be not executive ability,
but the ability to speak well, or the reputation of being a good "mixer."
No body of shareholders would consider appointing a man to be general manager of a bank, just because he was an effective after dinner speaker, or was a
member of a certain lodge, or merely because he needed the money. They would
demand some guarantee of his ability to manage the affairs of the institution,
some proof of his special fitness for the post. Lacking that, his application would
receive no serious consideration. Yet, if the same men were called upon to elect
a Mayor for their city, in other words, a general manager for the corporate interests,
they would be liable to be affected in their choice by the very arguments which
they would decline to consider in connection with the lesser post.
At the present moment Prince Rupert has a choice of two candidates for
the office of general manager of the city for the year 1911. One of them is already
the holder of a job which will necessitate his being out of the city for the two first
and most important months of the year, as well as on many later occasions. He
haa been described as a man who has spent most of his time "gumshoeing round
for jobs." The Empire, a journal which knows the candidate well, and is now
for purposes of its own endeavoring to secure his election, has said: "Mr. Manson
cannot faithfully serve the wirepullers and the best interests of this city. His
candidature is nothing less than an affront to our intelligence." And again: "With
Mr. Manson's election we fear the independence of Prince Rupert will fade away
for many a long year to come."   Truly not a very desirable candidate for Mayor.
On the other hand iB a man who has proved his executive ability in many
ways. He has built up for himself a successful business organization; he hag
served as a member of the first Council of Prince Rupert with sufficient success
to warrant his colleagues selecting him to be their choice for Mayor; he has
served as a police commissioner, and is the father of the liquor license by-law which
was put through the council last night. In addition to this he is a man with the
courage of his convictions. At a time when his rival had led both parties in the
recent Scott Act campaign lo believe that he was supporting them with his vote,
and hail not the courage even to face the charge of double-dealing, Alderman
Mobley made a clear statement of his position.
With a choice between a political carpet bagger travelling up and down looking
for another job, and a business man of Alderman Mobley's type and tried worth,
the electors should have no difficulty in selecting the better man.

The Prince George on her north
bound journey anticipated her time
scheduled somewhat by arriving with
the dawn this morning. She glided
slowly up the bay and into thc harbor
while most of the city inhabitants were
still yawning. She was not expected
till about eleven o'clock in the forenoon
and consequently the officials at this
end were agreeably surprised.
Although she hovered slowly about
during the last lap of the journey her
time for the journey constitutes a record.
She sailed from Vancouver on Monday
at midnight and was berthed at the
wharf this morning before nine o'clock.
Captain Robertson was all smiles at
the achievement. "We did not try to
break record," he said modestly. "As
a matter of fact, we crawled along
during the latter stages. It certainly
is the best time we have ever made
but it can easily be beaten if we were
to try." On being asked to ascribe a
reason for the unlocked celerity he
closed one eye solemnly and replied that
she was carrying less weight since she
scraped her bottom on the sands of the
Narrows.
The vessel carried a mixed cargo. The
passenger list was a small one.
MORE STOCK ARRIVES
Thirteen Box Cars and Snow Plough
for G. T. P.
Thirteen box cars and a snow plough
came into Prince Rupert this morning
for the G. T. P. on a scow which was
towed up by the Vancouver tug boat
Dolla. This substantial addition to
the company's stock at the northern
port comes from Winnipeg. It made the
journey via Edmonton and Vancouver.
Jack Beatty's All Right
The many friends of that popular
old-timer will be glad to learn that the
rumor current in the city this morning
regarding his having been seriously
injured by a rock which hit him while
a big blast was in progress, is entirely
without foundation.
Personal
Mr. J. McCarvell, brother of Chief
McCarvell of the City Police force,
arrived by the Steamer Prince George
from Vancouver on a visit to Prince
Rupert. He intends remaining here for
a week or so.
TYPEWRITER ACTS
AS A DETECTIVE
PROVIDES EXPERT MACHINIST
WITH CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE
And May Lead to Detection of Criminal Who Caused a Run on Birk-
beck Bank- Little Things Worth
Knowing.
The letter was written on an Oliver
No. 2 machine iold style., about eight
years old.
The carriage of the typewriter was
running sluggishly.
The letter "0" shows that the type-
bar was loose or bent.
The letter "13" type-bar was not in
proper adjustment.
The top of the capital letter "C" was
worn.
These arc the clues which have been
tabulated by a typewriter expert, after
an examination of the anonymous
typewritten letter, which, circulated
among thc depositors of the Birbeck
Bank, caused a recent "run," says the
London Evening News.
These clues, it is hoped, will aid
the authorities in discovering the identity of the author of the document.
What are their prospects of success?
A layman would probably consider
these chances very small indeed. He
would argue that there are thousands
of typewriting machines, and that in
the absence of signature, or like evidence, the search presents insurmountable difficulties.
In reality the difficulties are not so
overwhelming as they appear. To
the expert the typescript reveals a
great deal that is hidden from the
average mortal.
In the first place, different makes
of typewriters have their distinctive
fonts of type. In some cases this distinction is so marked that the typewriter Sherlock Holmes can at a single
glance say positively what make of
machine a piece of work was produced
on. In other instances the differences
are more subtle and entail a closer
examination, but a qualified expert can
usually get at the facts.
The age of thc machine is an important link in the chain of evidence,
and this can be gauged with reasonable
accuracy by the condition of the type.
A machine which has been in use for
some time betrays that fact by the bad
or indifferent alignment of its type, by
the undue wear of commonly used type
characters���the vowels, for instance,
and the principal consonants.
Moreover, each machine in thc course
of its career develops its own characteristic identification signs. Thus, a
particular consonant may lose part of
the type-face, one type may produce a
fainter impression than others, certain
characters may tend to "pile" together.

THE ROMANCE
OF A LAWSUIT
HEARING    IS   RESUMED   AFTER
NEARLY SIX HUNDRED YEARS
Richard de Manderville and Abbot of
St. Oayth Bequeath Legal Troubles
to Spirited Heirs Who Carry on the
Feud.
DAME NATURE
AS A WITNESS
London, Dec. 27.���Just 662 years after
its adjournment a law case which was
originally interrupted because Richard
de Manderville had to leave for the
war in France, has been resumed in
the Chancery court. The point at issue
is the right to hold a market at Stow-
market Suffolk, and the suit was originally brought by the Abbot of St. Osyth,
Essex, in the reign of Edward III.,
against Richard de Manderville.
The Abbot claimed that Richard had
wrongfully obtained the grant of the
right to hold a market "to the grave
damage of the said Abbot." Richard
claimed the King's protection, and
eventually the case was adjourned
sine die because of his departure abroad.
At the resumed hearing G. F. Howard,
the modern representative of Richard,
asserted that G. W. Woodward, the
modern representative of the Abbot,
had no right to set up a rival market.
The assertion waa supported by Dr.
Ogden K. C, who cited tne Domes-day
Book and other books.
"When Richard de Manderville went
abroad," remarked Justice Eve, "he
little foresaw that we would be fighting
the same question 600 years afterwards."
Thc hearing was adjourned.
WILL CONVICT
ODOROUS EGGS
SIMPLE SCHEME TO DETECT THE
VENDERS  OF  BAD   EGGS

Articles Should be Stamped With
Date of Birth and Signature of th*
Vender���Will Increase Number of
Healthy Eggs.
The spirit of honesty is abroad and the
perpetrator of the foul egg is in danger
of losing his reputation. The Western
Canada Trade Gazette has initiated a
movement which has for its object, if
not the abolition of the odorous egg, at
least the detection of the person who
vends it. The method is simple. It
consists of dating the egg and adhibiting
the signature of the seller. Of course
the stamp date can easily be manipulated
but the signature will always be incriminating and will enable the merchant
who ll usually blamed without reason
by ths* customer, to deal with thc vender
as he thinks fit.
The adoption of this principle will, it
is hoped, greatly increase the percentage
of strictly fresh eggs and at thc same
time stamp thc merchant as progressive.
Merchants would no doubt also find it
profitable to grade their eggs with rcgar'd
to size nnd color. By this means th��
appearance of the stock in particular
and the store in general will be greatly
enhanced.

is 261 years old you will see it at Wark's

HER EVIDENCE WILL DECIDE  A
HALF MILLION SUIT
Plaintiff Alleges That Fire Originating on Piles on the Railway Spread
to Their Premises and Destroyed
Their Timber.
Dame Nature will be an important
witness in the case of Clarkson vs.
Nelson & Fort Sheppard Railway company. This, at least, is the intention of
the defence, represented by Mr. A. H.
MacNeill, K. C.
The action involves $450,000. According to the plaintiff's allegations
fire originating in the burning piles of
debris along the railway spread to
timber lots owned by Clarkson and
destroyed a large area. The trial was
set down for December 6.
A few (lays ago Mr. MacNeill applied to the court for an order for
particulars of the damage alleged. Today he came before Mr. Justice Morrison again, stating that the particulars
furnished were inadequate. He also
asked for an adjournment of the trial
to allow of the defendant going over
the ground and ascertaining the amount
of damage.
An affidavit was read to the effect
that in the spring when the sap rises
in the trees it is easier to determine
what trees have been killed and what
are still alive.
"Thus Nature will give important
testimony," said Mr. MacNeill.
The trial was postponed until the
February court.
WIRELESS TO
CROSS SAHARA
FRANCE WORKING SCHEME TO
LINK UP POSSESSIONS
Experiments Prove Conclusively that
Feat Can be Performed Despite the
Electric Tension of the Atmosphere
���Work Is Proceeding.
Paris Dec. 26.���The French military and colonial authorities are evolving
a great scheme of wireless telegraphy,
the object of which is to link up across
the desert the West African possessions
with the great colony of Algeria, and
thus bring them into direct communication with Paris. It was at first feared
that the electric tension of the atmosphere, which has been frequently noted
in thc desert, would interfere with the
propagation of the Hertzian waves.
Experiments, however, which have
been recently carried out at El Blod.
Krebazar, Mercheria, and Colomb-Be-
char prove conclusively that such is
not the case, for notwithstanding that
thc apparatus was of .the most rudimentary character it was found possible to receive rot only the signals
agreed upon from the post at Forte de
L'Eau. near Algs;;,,, m��� pVpn ,,������,.
hiunlcatlons fcmanatltiB; from certain
Kn-'lisli and great transatlantic stations. These experiments will now
be continued at Elgolea and further
soulh, but there seems no reason to
doubt that in the near future the most
distant posts occupied by the French
in Central Africa will be connected
by wireless telegraphy.

To save daylight might seem an even
more precarious task that the saving
of souls, yet it has preceded the latter
object in so far that its aim has been
mouthed in the Canadian House of
Commons in the form of a p.'vate
member's bill. "An Act respecting the
saving of daylight" is the title under
which it is proposed to develop into a
piece of the legislative machinery. In
its own simple language it is a bill
"with the object of promoting a more
extended use and enjoyment of daylight
during the summer months, by advancing the meridian by one hour
between the months of April and November."
The sponser for the bill is Mr. E. N.
Lewis of West Huron, who introduced
the measure to Parliament on the second
of December. In doing so he made
quite a hit with the proposition. He
dilated upon the obvious advantages of
such a change and pointed out that the
small alteration would not interfere
with anything. When the time of its
operation in each year expired it could
easily be adjusted again. The bill was
read a first time.
WINNIPEG IS
STILL WALKING
MAYOR EVANS MAKES ANOTHER
ATTEMPT AT PEACE
Union Tailors of Manitoba Clothing
Company Refuse to Make Uniforms for Strike Breakers and Are
Locked Out by Employers.
(Special to the Optimist)
Winnipeg, Dec. 28.���There is still no
hope of conciliation being resorted to
in connection with the car strike. Both
parties are still adamant. Mayor Evans
made another futile attempt at the head
of the civic committee to solve the
difficulty amicably.
A rather amusing side light upon the
is the lockout of the union workers
of the Manitoba Clothing company
because they refused to make uniforms
for the car strike breakers. Yesterday
passed without any repetition of the
riots that marked the earlier stages of
the fight. But still settlement seems a
long way off.

(Special to the Optimist)
London, Dec. 28.���The famous Allan

LIQUOR BY-LAW
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
What About "Drunks?"
The clause prohibiting a license
holder from permitting a drunken man
to enter his premises was objected to
by Alderman Mclntyre on the ground
that it would necessitate the employment by the license holder of a man
solely for the purpose of guarding his
door against drunks.
Alderman Naden suggested that the
substitution of the words "remain in"
instead of enter would meet the case
but Alderman Mobley did not like this,
and the Mayor pointed out that they
already had a clause which aaid a license
holder could not turn a drunken man
out.
Must Care for Them
Finally the clause was made to read:
"No licensee shall permit any customer served with liquor to leave the premises in an intoxicated condition unless
accompanied and under charge of a
competent Prince Rupert person.
This matter was dealt with early in
the discussion. The two clauses to
which Alderman Smith and Alderman
Hilditch objected were the last ones
discussed laat night.
MURDER IN SEATTLE
Body of Billy Marks Found in Mutilated   State
(Special to the Optimist)
Seattle, Dec. 28.���A young miner
named Billy Marks who recently arrived in the city from the north was
found murdered in First avenue today.
Marks was known to be a newcomer
through his fellow workmen but apart
from that little is known of him. From
the condition in which he was found
he appears to have been the victim of
a cold blooded murder, with robbery
the most likely motive.
