(Special to the Optimist)
_.  Petersburg,  Jan.   4.���A terrific
rthquake has completely devastated
Jitral  Turkestan.    There  is  a  tre-
|ndous loss of life and the damage
I property is estimated at over two
llion dollars.   As moat of the trunk
egraph lines are down it is impossible
fully estimate the damage.    It is
Bred, however, that when the reports

ock since that which destroyed San
���ancisco. The country is thickly
ttled and several large cities are
ported to have sustained damage.
Is This the Clue?

iREATEST PLOT
EVER UNEARTHED
DAUSED LONDON POLICE TO EXTERMINATE ANARCHISTS
crecy Maintained Regarding De-
\ tails but It It Conceded That the
Gang   Had   Dire   Intentions   Regarding    Coronation     Festivities.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Jan. 4.���The terrible attack
���vhich was yesterday directed against
Ithe extermination of the anarchist gang
In the city is today the only topic of
discussion   in   the   great   metropolis.
Everyone is anxious to know the why
and wherefore of such drastic measures
on the part of the police and the military.
The Daily Telegraph came to their
aid this morning with a statement to
the effect that prior to the fight the
police accidentally stumbled across the
greatest plot yet unearthed.   The utmost secrecy  is  maintained regarding
' the motif of the plot but it is generally
; understood   to   have   relation   to   the
I forthcoming coronation of King George
V.
That the gang were located in England with a view to perpetrating some
horrible crime on that auspicious occasion seems more than probable. That
is the only reason assigned for the
unique and effective method employed
to get rid of the dangerous principals
to the plot.
London i,Later)-Follow,ng the part
in the battle against the anarchists
Mr. Winston Churchill today made a
statement to the press of the city oi
Undon to the effect that immigra ion
laws must now be passed to protect
the shores of Great Britain from, suet,
creatures. Five hundred armed detectives are making a house to house
search through the anarchist headquarters owing to reports that reprisals
are being planned having been receiveu
at police headquarters.

Newton Tells His Troubles to the Audience
Mr. William Manson, M. P. P., and
mayoral candidate for the City of
Prince Rupert opened his campaign
proper in the Empress Theatre last
night. In anticipation of this interesting
event there was a large audience which
fairly filled the theatre* Mr. Manson
was supported on the platform by a
number of the aldermen and prospective
aldermen who are espousing his cause
in the mayoralty fight. Before proceeding with the business ot the meeting
the chairman, Mr. T. Dunn, invited
any aldermen who might be present
in the audience to come to the platform
and in response to this invitation Messrs.
Mobley and Pattullo stepped up and
were greeted along with the others
with hearty applause���Mr. Mobley sitting down beside Mr. S. M. Newton.
The meeting was of a prolonged nature,
lasting till well after eleven o'clock,
but throughout the utmost good feeling
prevailed on both sides. Hard knocks
were given and taken, and on several
occasions "eventualities" seemed im
minent, but the iron rule of Mr. Dunn
aerved to restrain the impetuous as well
as the obstreperous, without in any
way creating an impression of partisanship or prejudice.
After the chairman had appealed for
a fair hearing for all ot the speakers
he called upon Mr. Manson to open
the ball.
Manson Leads the Way
A great reception was accorded thc
mayoral candidate. Wasting no time
over idle preliminaries he waded into
the various issues of the election. He
had been criticised, he said, because
it would be necessary for him to be
absent from the city for the first six
weeks of the year. He took occasion
to point out that during the last seven
months Mayor Stork had been absent
from the city for seven weeks, and he
thought therefore that it would be no
great crime for him to be absent for six
weeks out of the twelve months in
Victorai.
In reference to the holding of the
meeting he said that they had been
accused of trying to evade their opponents in open debate. He replied,
however, that it has been previously
arranged between himself and Alderman
Mobley that they would not open their
campaign till after the New Year and
as that pledge had not been acted up
to by his opponent, he thought he was
entitled to take the first opportunity
that offered itself after the New Year,
of opening his campaign. In doing so
he was quite within his rights and he
did not think the action in any way
justified the criticism that had been
hurled at him. At the same time he
welcomed Alderman Mobley and Pattullo to his platform.
Must Follow Council
In regard to the policy now to be
adopted or advocated, he said that,
it must have regard to what had gone
before during the past seven months.
Seven months ago it was easy to lay
down a policy but now they must have
regard to the past. It would not do
to lay down a policy that would upset
or undo what had already been done.
They must follow the p ent council
where they left off. The council had
had many duties to undertake and
he had no petty criticism to offer. No
one knew better than he the difficulties
of the situation. They, the council, of
course had a clean sheet to begin with
and were to a certain extent the gainers,
having nothing to interfere with their
progress.
Financial Policy
To his mind there was nothing more
important than the financial policy
of the city. It was the whole key to
the situation, regarding municipal affairs.
The financial policy he advocated seven
months ago was borrowing the necessary
money upon the credit of the whole
city for street grading, installing water,
and sewerage systems, electric light and
the telephone. He believed that the
method of borrowing was very mud
simpler spread over thc whole city than
on the local, improvement plan. He
thought it was a proper thing that the
charges for street grading should be
spread over the whole city. So far as
he was concerned he had no objection
to the grading of Section One, but he
wanted the whole city to be graded. He
thought it would have been better if
the grading in Section One had been
confined to a smaller area. If the congested portions of Section One had been
graded it would have been easier upon
the financial credit of the city. They
would have had less to face in regard
to sewers and macadamising.    In ad-

FOR MAYOR

Friday, Evening, Jan. 6
at 8 o'clock, in the interests of
Alderman Frank Mobley
for Mayor.

dition to that it hampered the outside
portions of the city.
Term Not Long Enough
He contended that the improvements
which they had undertaken and the
items which they had to undertake
during the ensuing year would exhaust
their borrowing power. He criticized
the council for basing their financial
policy upon a twenty year term. He
thought it was a mistake. The money
about to be borrowed should be extended over the longest period possible,
forty or fifty years. To borrow on a
long term meant that they would have
a smaller rate of taxation.
In Grips With Pattullo
Alderman Pattullo, he said, had been
doing considerable figuring in regard
to borrowing. In replying to some of
the Alderman's criticisms of his proposal
he said that the council bad been compelled to follow the policy they did, on
account of the local improvement plan.
That policy, he said, compelled the city
to go to the bank and raise the money.
They could not tell what the work was
going to cost until it was done Their
financial policy was therefore forced
upon them by their pursuance of tbe
local improvement plan.
He thought that Alderman Pattullo's
reasoning of the matter was misleading.
It was not necessary to borrow a million
dollars all at once. Once their iii*U*n
tures were sold they could go to the bank
and get an advance on them quickly
and easily. As it is now, they did not
know what they might have to sell at.
They must be issued, however, and they
must be -fold. In any event he thought
it was wrong to start work without
first having the authority of the people
In Section One the people had never
been consulted.
Mr. Manson's Platform
Coming to his plaftorm for the
mayoralty he said that last year he
had advocated the taxation of land
values only. That policy he was glad
to know had been adopted during the
year. He twitted Alderman Pattullo's
scepticism in regard to the water record.
In the matter of building sidewalks
and pavements he favored the local
improvement plan, but in the case of
the permanent grar1'. j of the streets
which would last for ever he thought
it should be paid for by the whole city.
His platform also provided for the
municipal control of the tramways and
other public utilities that would be
created with the development of the
city. He favored an eight hour day
for all city workmen at $3 per day, and
others at the current rate, for provisions
to be made in all city contracts against
the employment of Asiatic labor.
As regards work already done or
in hand they would adhere to the policy
of the present council. He would make
a change in the financial policy, however.
He would try to have the time tor the
expiry of the loan altered from twenty
years to fifty years.    He believed that
FIERCE STORMS

KENORA BREAKS RECORD WITH
MERCURY 51 BELOW
Business is Completely Stopped in
Many Places on Account of Bitter
Gale���In Regina No One Ventured
on the Streets.
Special to the Optimist
Winnipeg, Jan. 4-Reports from the
outlying places on the great plains all
tell of the raging storm which ravaged
the whole country yesterday and the
day before. The condition in Saskatchewan is described as the worst in
years. The hurricanes and snows made
it quite impossible to go out of doors.
All traffic was held up or seriously delayed. Prince Albert has the same
story tojtell. In Regina hardly anyone
dared venture on the street, so bitter
was the cold and so fierce the gale At
Moose Jaw the mercury recorded from
thirty-five to thirty-seven below, whereas at Kenora the thermometer was almost put |out of business. Fifty-one
below was recorded. All business was
at a complete standstill for the simple
reason that it was quite impossible to
do anything. Brandon also got the full
blast of the gale,

Winnipeg, Jan. 4.���Word has been
received here to the effect that one of
the alleged dynamiters connected with
the destruction of the Govan Post Office

portion of the body whieh most needs
protection when a person is skating.
Also double breasted is the military
sweater, which has strap fastened cuffs
and collar which effectively prevent the
wind from chilling the throat and arms,
the full length coat which has a turndown collar, one in fancifully woven wool
with a shawl collar and side pockets,
trimmed with a contrasting color, and an
absolutely new model having wide double panels which may be buttoned back
when not needed or be drawn across the
front when extra warmth is required
and has a knitted bell which disappears
through side slits beneath the arms and
fastens under the coat ut the back.

Oxford gray, dull green or pure white,
but a model which is having immense
vogue this season is precisely like the

Suggestions for Housewives
Oil paintings hung over the chimney
place are liable to wrinkle with the heat.
Rosewood furniture should be rubbed gently every day with a clean, soft
cloth to keep the surface well polished.
Nothing makes better iron holders

callous the hands as many materials
will.
A fillet of beef requires a longer time
for roasting than any other cut or kind
of meat. Usually half an hour to the

comes next; the average time allowed
for a roast of pork is twenty minutes

A   Guarantee   of   Value  Received
Advertise in The Optimist
Resent the  Race Hatred Cry
Dear Sir,���A few lines of your
valuable paper to make a few remarks
on a too much abused subject.
"Money goes abroad" writes the
Empire. The Federal government spendB
thousands of dollars yearly in advertising
in European countries to bring people to
Canada to develop its great natural
resources, native population nf Canada
being altogether inadequate.
Alderman Hilditch's ideas coincide
with the Empire's and his cry for a
"white man's town. Now, Mr. Editor,
I think that this is an insult to our
foreign born citizens who have been
brought here on the invitation of the
government of this country. Such
remarks can only emanate fron an
arrogant, ignorant and narrow nature
and show a very small grasp of the
economic necessities of the present
time.
If a balance were taken from the
amount of money going out of this
country on one hand and the amount of
money being brought in and the wealth
created by those so-called foreigners,
it would very much be to their credit.

Mr. Hilditch claims to be the Labor

the carpenters indorse him now?
was nominated by the Socialist party
which was the working class party at
that time but I was not seeking office.
So I am in a position to know.
As the Empire claims to be the
working man's friend, how is it that it
does not take an interest in working
class meetings, as the Socialists were
holding one or two meetings per week
last winter and there have been several
labor meetings the past five or six weeks
without a representative of the Empire
being present.
Mr. Editor, I give you credit for
having a reporter at the working class

TELEPHONE CO.
HAS CABLE SHIP
TO LAY NEW CABLE FROM VANCOUVER TO VICTORIA
B. C. Telephone Company Decides to
Construct Boat to Facilitate the
Laying of New Cables Across
Rivers and Other Waters.
To lay its new paper pupil) coil
cable from Vancouver to Victoria, and
for the purpose of making prompt repairs to any future breaks in the Gulf
of Georgia and Kruzer Kiver cables,
the British Columbia Telephone company hus just decided on the construction of a cable ship. The equipment iB to be secured in England, while
the hull will be built here.
The company has been in correspondence for some time with various
cable-laying apparatus concerns in the
old country, and has finally selected
a double-gear, similar to thai in use
on the ship Restorer, owned by the
Commercial Cable company, and the
American Government's boat Burn-
side at Seattle. This equipment, when
complete, will include a cable lank,
dynamelers, grappling and sounding
apparatus.
The vessel will be about 125 feet in
length, being somewhat smaller than
the Restorer. The engines are to be
installed in Vancouver. It is expected
that the total cost of the ship will
approximate $115,000.
In the past, officials of the telephone company state, il has taken
them about ten days to make repairs
on their cables owing to the fact that
they were forced to hire cable boats.
In the future, when they have a boat
of their own, they hope to be able to
attend to any ordinary difficulties in
three days or even less. This boat
will attend to the present cable to
Victoria, the new one to be laid next
year, and the three small cables across
the Fraser River at New Westminster,
Chilliwack and Rosedale.

IN
Case is Adjourned Formally For a
Week by Magistrate While Mr.
Patmore Get* After Witnesses who
Are Out of Town.
Before Magistrate Carss this morning S. M. Newton, managing editor of
the Evening Empire appeared to answer to the charge of having written
and published the statement In the Empire implying that Aid. Mobley was
concerned in the sale of liquor wholesale to non-licence holders. L. W.
Patmore appeared for the slefence, and
A. M. Manson for the prosecution.
E<litor Newton  presented an impert
urbable front as he stood in the witness
box while the charge was being read to
him. Mr. Patmore asked that a remand of eight days b* granted to let
him prepare his case and summon witnesses now out of town.
Magistrate Carss said a formal adjournment for seven dayi
was necessary if Mr. Mobley and his
counsel were agreeable. At first Mr.
Manson was inclined to object to the
delay, but on the understanding that
the case would not be kept back more
than was absolutely necessary, he
agreed to the adjournment.
Mr. Newton's plea is understood to
be one of "not guilty." The case was
the only ont in court to-day and attracted no special attention.

this morning. Four dead bodies have
already been taken from the debris.
Immediately the news of the disaster
was rushed through a relief train with
twenty nurses was made up and despatched with all possible speed and a
right of way to the scene. The trains
colliding are numbers 2 and 40. The
number 2 is the North Coast Limited.

lint. Details of the disaster are still
lacking but the dead and injured will
probably be an extensive one.
For a time there was great danger
that the wreckage would ignite and thus
destroy any chance of rescuing the
injured. A large staff of men and
nurses is now engaged in removing thc
bodies and attending to the injured.
How the collision occurred is not definitely known. A misleading signal
: is belie *ed to have caused the disaster.
Chicago, Jan. 4.���(Special)*���After a
three days' fight with the fierce blizzard
of winter most of the passenger trains
making to or going from this place are
running on time. Little freight is
moving, however, many trains being

line. The streets of the city have been
cleared and business is resumed again.

tf THE   PRINCE  RUPERT   OPTIMIST
MAYORAL CONTEST
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
that would lighten the burden of taxation
and would also be the proper method
of dealing with the affairs of the city.
Sewers and Light
If elected Mayor he would proceed
next year with the installation of a
water works system by bringing forward
a by-law for the raising of the necessary
money. They also required a sewerage
system to provide for the needs of the
congested ureas of Sections Five, Six and
Seven. The trunk sewers he would
make chargeable to thc general fund
but the distribution of the laterals
he thought should be settled on the local
improvement basis.
In regard to the electric light he said
I that if it 'xai* not *���*��� ��y tne t,me the
' election was over and he was returned
he would undertake to have it in operation within ten days after that peri d.
He complimented the council for having
installed a telephone of its own. He
thouisht they deserved all the credit
that was coming to them on that account. Beyond the fact that he was
repared to enforce the law he had
nothing to say in connection with the
police department.
Voices a Protest
He wished to enter a protest against
the canvass that waa being made among
the city officials against his candidature
to the effect that if he was returned
they might find themselves without a
job. He wished to refute any such
statement or intention. "Any city
official whose services are required need
have no fears for me," he said. In
connection with the G. T. P. settlement
there was also an underhand canvas
being made against his candidature.
His attitude upon that matter had been
misrepresented in the reports he had
read of public meetings. He had been
reported as saying that he would not
refer it to the city. He quoted Alderman
Mobley as having made thc statement.
The question must be settled by the
people of Prince Rupert he said. It
had also been repeatedly charged against
him that if he was elected he would
sell the city out on the question. "That/
he said, "was too absurd to require
consideration, and to canvass that report from door to door was getting very
low down." It was not time to be
quarreling with the G. T. P. and he
did not propose to introduce anything
into the campaign that would in any
way hamper the city.
G. T. P. Assessment Trouble
He rebutted Alderman Pattullo's challenge that he was responsible for the
appointment of Mr. Cuthbert as assessor
in the G. T. P. difficulty. Mr. Cuthbert
was appointed by a committee, and he
did his work well. Mr. Cuthbert did
his work without any instruction cither
from him or from the government as
to how he was to act. Besides there was
no trouble over the assessment. The
trouble arose over the taxation.
There were a lot of other charges and
challenges, but he was not going to
pay any attention to them. He thanked
them cordially for the courteous hearing
accorded him and again asked for their
support. On resuming his seat he was
warmly applauded.
Mobley Makes Reply
After thanking Mr. Manson for the
opportunity of speaking at this meeting
Alderman Mobley said that he had
hoped he might had had the opportunity
after hearing Mr. Manson of reviewing
some arguments against the city council.
He was surprised there were so few.
"However," he said, "in regard to
Mr. Manson's charge of breach of truce
I claim that as I held no meetings on
my own behalf and when asked to
speak at meetings in support of aldermanie candidates did not announce
more than my candidature in plain
terms, I have kept the truce as well
as Mr. Manson himself." (Cheers).
Methods and Men
Regarding Mr. Manson's financial
calculations Alderman Mobley thought
Mr. Manson should go back and check
his figures; and on the subject of the
method taken in city work he was firm.
"We gave the people the opportunity
to petition that this method ol work
should not be adopted if they wished
to," he said, "and not a single man!
came forward to say no to it." As an
example of the difficulty of getting the
people's opinion, Alderman Mobley cited
the instance of the proposed Second
avenue sidewalk when fifty petitioned
for and fifty against the work.
"Mr. Manson," said Alderman Mobley,! "criticises the grading of streets
on the frontage tax basis but he himself
would put in sidewalks later on on
frontage tax basis. It is simply a matter
of opinion, and the same applies to the
flotation of bonds on a 20, 40, or 50
years' term."
Twenty Years Hence
Alderman Mobley pointed out thut
the marketing of $100,000 worth of
bonds was just as expensive as the
issue of five times the issue, and further
lhat by arranging for an issue of inscribed
stock the city was taking steps to set
its finances on a firm basis very speedily.
As for the term of the present loan,
anybody knew that twenty years' interest was less than fifty years' interest.
"And ia twenty years," added Alderman
Mobley, "Prince Rupert will be so rich
that the trifling extra cost spoken of by
Mr. Manson will not be considered. If
this is not so, I don't want to be here,
nor I think, do any of you!"
City Water Supply
Speaking of the present water supply
Alderman Mobley explained that with
the system of dams and the Hays Creek
supply to fall back upon, there was
ample water for the present needs of
the city. He was glad that Mr. Manson
appreciated the council's work in this
respect. However, good as it was, they
si ill had to press on with the Woodworth
Lake supply as it might soon be badly
needed.
Defends the Police
Bringing up the subject of police
affairs, "Mr. Manson is going to put
us right in this respect," said Alderman
Mobley, "I wonder what has brought
about the reformation in Mr. Manson
himself on this subject? Were thc
police affairs so very much better when
Mr. Manson was practically mayor of
Prince Rupert? The city docs not look
for perfection in the police force," he

continued, "and some of the criticism
of it may even be just enough. Yet
thc city takes care that it does not
keep in its employ ao unsatisfactory
member of the police force.
"There was a charge brought up
formerly against a man named Regan
���that was the Flossie Russel incident���
but Regan was exonerated from blame
by Magistrate Carss. In any case where
a charge is brought against a constable

The Mayor Who Wouldn't Be Missed
There is no doubt in the mind of Mr. Manson and his supporters that he would
make the kind of Mayor who wouldn't bc missed.
Mr. Manson gave it as his own opinion at last night's meeting that he wouldn't
be missed for six weeks. Alderman Hilditrh who knows both Mr. Manson and the
work of the council gave it as his opinion that if Mr. Manson were Mayor he could
stay away for two months and not be missed. This brings it within the jurisdiction
of thc remark in yesterday's Optimist that a Mayor who could stay away for two
months and not lie missed, might just as well stay away for the remaining ten.
The kind of Mayor Prince Rupert needs is one who can't stay away two days
without being missed. Some of the candidates for council honors should remember
the example of Alderman Naden and Mayor Stork, both of whom are retiring
because the demands of their private affairs will prevent them from giving adequate
time to puhlic affairs.
The kind of man who won't be missed from the council has no business to run
for oflice, let alone expect election.

ROCHESTER & MONROE
Alderman Mobley's Platform
As was expected, thc platform which Alderman Mobley outlined last night
as the basis of his candidature for Mayor, was largely a continuation of the policy
of last year's council. This was a wise course, and an ample policy. It is far more
satisfactory to the citizens to have a man declare himself in favor of a scries of
concrete reforms which are now in process of labor, rather than to listen to a lot
of airy generalities about reforms which are to come out from the skies.
Under the business policy of thc last council, a large amount of improvement
work has been done. The grading of the business section has been arranged for,
and plankways built out into the residential districts. Fire and police departments
have been installed, a water supply provided for, a telephone and electric lighting
plant erected. Financial pressure brought to bear to crush the city into submission
to the corporations has been successfully met, and the finances of the city put
on a satisfactory basis. In addition, a vast array of machinery (or the moral and
social government of the city has been provided.
In announcing the following up and extension of this business policy of developing the city. Aid. Mobley announced a policy which will commend itself to the
great mass of citizens whose ehief desire in electing a Mayor and council, is to
choose someone who will "get things done."
Empire on Mr. Manson
OH, YOU JUMPING JACKS!
From the Rmpireof May 10th.i
Why should the ritizens swallow a further dose, and how ran this same bunch
of jumping jacks square themselves in trying lo hoist Mr. Manson into a position
of still greater power after so vehemently denouncing the influences which he failed
to divide the House upon?
In supporting Mr. Manson arc they nut lighting for the perpetuation of the |
very principles which they have so roundly condemned? And how can the Rupert
public place any reliance in such fluctuating and insincere utterances, or in any
recommendations they may choose to make.
The only surprising feature of thc situation is that Mr. Manson has not the
good sense to keep free from such somcrsaulters, instead of plunging into this
seething cauldron. Of course he has hopes of being able to subdue the local revolt,
but he has only partially succs-eded.

no fire.
The victims of the panic were mostly

Four Dead Bodies Were Removed
From the Debris���Special Train
and Twenty Nurses Despatched to
Scene of Disaster.
'Special to thc Optimist"!
Spokane. Jan. 4.���Two Northern Pacific passenger trains collided at Cheney
this morning. Four dead bodies have
already been taken from the debris.
Immediately the news of the disaster
was rushed through a relief train with
twenty nurses was made up and despatched with all possible speed and a
right of way to the scene. The trains
colliding are numbers 2 and 40. The
number 2 is thc North Coast Limited,
the crack train of the Northern Pacific
line. Details of the disaster are still
lacking but the dead and injured will
probably be an extensive one.
For a time there was great danger
that the wreckage would ignite and thus
destroy any chance of rescuing the
injured. A large staff of men and
nurses is now engaged in removing thc
bodies and attending to the injured.
How the collision occurred is not definitely known. A misleading signal
is believed to have caused the disaster.

that would lighten the burden of taxation
and would also l<o en? proper method
of dealing with the affairs of the city.
Sowers and Light
If elected Mayor he would  proceed
lext year  with  the  installation  of  a
water works system by bringing forward
a by-law for the raising of the necessary
money.   They also required a sewerage
system to provide for the needs of the
congested ureas of Sections Five, Six and
Seven.    The  trunk  sewers  he  would
make chargeable to the general  fund
but   the   distribution   of   the   laterals
I he thought should be settled on the local
I improvement basis.
In regard to the electric light he said
I that if it was not in by the time the
election wus over and he was returned
he would undertake to have it in operation within ten days after that peri d.
He complimented the council for having
installed a telephone of its own. He
thought they deserved all the credit
that was coming to them on that account. Beyond the fact that he was
repared to enlorce the law he had
nothing to say in connection with the
pnlire department.
Voices a Protest
He wished to enter a protest against
the canvass that was being made among
the city officials against his candidature
to the effect that if he was returned
they might find themselves without a
job. He wished to refute any such
statement or intention. "Any city
official whose services are required need
have no fears for me," he said. In
connection with the G. T. P. settlement
there was also an underhand canvas
being made against his candidature.
His attitude upon that matter had been
misrepresented in the reports he had
read of public meetings. He had been
reported as saying that he would not
refer it to the city. He quoted Alderman
Mobley as having made the statement.
The question must be settled by the
people of Prince Rupert he said. It
had also been repeatedly charged against
him that if he was elected he would
sell the city out on the question. "That,"
he said, "was too absurd to require
consideration, and to canvass that report from door to door was getting very
low down." It was not time to be
quarreling with the G. T. P. and he
did not propose to introduce anything
into the campaign that would in any
way hamper the city.
G. T. P. Assessment Trouble
He rebutted Alderman Pattullo's challenge that he was responsible for the
appointment of Mr. Cuthbert as assessor
in the G. T. P. difficulty. Mr. Cuthbert
was appointed by a committee, and he
did his work well. Mr. Cuthbert did
his work without any instruction cither
from him or from the government as
to how he was to act. Besides there wus
no trouble over the assessment. The
trouble arose over the taxation.
There were a lot of other charges and
challenges, but he was not going to
pay any attention to them. He thanked
them cordially for the courteous hearing
accorded him and again asked for their
support. On resuming his scat he was
warmly applauded.
Mobley Makes Reply
After thanking Mr. Manson for the
opportunity of speaking at this meeting
Alderman Mobley said that he had
hoped he might had had the opportunity
lifter hearing Mr. Manson of reviewing
some arguments against the city council
He was surprised there were so few.
"However," he said, "in regard to
Mr. Manson's charge of breach of truce
I claim that as I held no meetings on
my own behalf and when asked to
speak at meetings in support of aldermanie candidates did not announce
more than my candidature in plain
terms, I have kept the truce as well
as Mr. Manson himself." (Cheers).
Methods and Men
Regarding Mr. Manson's financial
calculations Alderman Mobley thought
Mr. Manson should go back and check
his figures; and on the subject of the
method taken in city work he was firm.
"We gave the people the opportunity
to petition that this method of work
should not be adopted if they wished
to," he said, "and not a single raun
came forward to say no to it." As an
example of the difficulty of getting the
people's opinion, Alderman Mobley cited
the instance of the proposed Second
avenue sidewalk when fifty petitioned
for and fifty against the work.
"Mr. Manson," said Alderman Mobley,. "criticises the grading of streets
on the frontage tax basis but he himself
would put in sidewalks later on on
frontage tux basis. It is simply a matter
of opinion, and the same applies to the
flotation of bonds on a 20, 40, or 50
years' term."
Twenty Years Hence
Alderman Mobley pointed out that
the marketing of $100,000 worth of
bonds was just as expensive as the
issue of five times the issue, and further
that by arranging for an issue of inscribed
stock the city was taking steps to set
its finances on a firm basis very speedily.
As for the term of the present loan,
anybody knew that twenty years' interest was less than fifty years' interest.
"And in twenty years," added Alderman
Mobley. "Prince Rupert will be so rich
that thc trifling extra cost spoken of by
Mr. Manson will not be considered. If
this is not so, I don't want to be here,
nor I think, do any of you!"
City Water Supply
Speaking of the present water supply
Alderman Mobley explained that with
the system of dams and thc Hays Creek
supply to fall back upon, there was
ample water tor the present needs of
the city. He was glad that Mr. Manson
appreciated the council's work in this
respect. However, good as it was, they
still had to press on with the Woodworth
Lake supply as it might soon be badly
needed.
Defends the Police
Bringing up the subject of police
affairs, "Mr. Manson is going to put
us right in this respect," said Alderman
Mobley, "I wonder what has brought
about the reformation in Mr. Manson
himself on this subject? Were the
police affairs so very much better when
Mr. Manson was practically mayor of
Prince Rupert? The city does not look
for perfection in the police force," he
To The Thousands

continued, "and some of the criticism
of it may even be just enough. Yet
the city takes care that it does not
keep in its employ an unsatisfactory
member of the police force.
"There was a charge brought up
formerly against a man named Regan
���that was the Flossie Russel incident���
but Regan was exonerated from blame
by Magistrate Carss. In any case where
a charge is brought against a constable
the city's method of meeting the case
is clear and simple, the man is put on
suspension until he can answer the
charge.
"In defence too, of the police force
let me give you this statement to show
you that we have done something: the
city police force since it was organized
in June had made 246 arrests and
recorded 197 convictions up to the first
of December, realizing only $375 short
of the amount of the whole cost of the

settled the matter in a different way, a

A country parson meeting one of the

Parson: "Good morning. You know I

yet seen you at church." Villager:
"Yes, sir; that's true. And I am the

you in my shop yet, either."

"That snippy young architect," said
Mr. Muntoburn, in a towering rage,
"had the impudence to tell me that the
ornamental work on my garage was a
fine example of rococo style of the
decorative art."
"What reply did you make?"
"I smashed him on the rococonut."
The Bookseller���This, sir, is an excellent book on swimming, and a very
useful one, too.
The Customer���Useful?
The Bookseller���Yes, sir. If ever
you find yourself drowning, you have
only to turn to pages 88 and 89, and
there you will find full instructions how
to save yourself.
"Look here!" exclaimed the angry
chappie in the evening suit, "this is an
outrage! I've been mistaken for a

proprietor of the restaurant. "Not so

already quit on account of the mistake,
and I don't want the rest to go."

"Hot in Brazil?" said the young
man, who had just returned from a
trip to South America. "Well. I should
say so. Do you know for days at
a time we couldn't take our after dinner
siesta on account of the peculiar noises?"
"What noises?" asked the blond
stenographer innocently.
"Why, the coffee popping on the
trees. You see, the sun was so hot
the grains just roasted before they
were picked. "
The old traveller yawned.
"Rather warm down here, bub," he
rejoined, laconically, "but when I was
down there you couldn't sleep at night.
Every once in a while there would sound
the most extraordinary crackling noise
that ever fell upon the human ear."
"What were the sounds, Mr. Bings?"
And Mr. Bings yawned again and
replied: "The rubber trees stretching
themselves."

Rupert is in a very strong potion.
The Bank oi Montreal was interested
in the city now to the amount of $500.-
000. and would hat to boost the city's
flotation of stock in the world's markets.
Who Delayed the Light
"One of the most difficult problems
the council had to face." said Alderman
Pattullo. "was tbe lighting problem.
To put the proposition or. a paying
basis was the problem. As for tbe
delay if there was any delay it was due
to Alderman Smith mho as chairman
of the committee kept wanting the
matter adjourned. When :he other
members of the committee took the
matter ir. hand it mas quickly Ftarts*-d
in earnest. Now the light is nearly
here." went on Alderman Pattullo.
"and 1 ha-e no doubt indeed that if
Mr Manson were elected Mayor we
should have light right away���r.o* that
the work is done. But he would want
the credit for soing it."
Assessment Again
Alderman Pattullo referred to th*
G. T. P. assessment which Mr. Mansor.
had said Mr. Cuthber. had done very-
well. ���'Certainly for some people he
did very well " said Alderman Pattullo.
"I could show you a lot belonging to
the G. T* P. Development company
assessed at $10 ar.d within thirty feet
of ;t one otherwise owned, which is
a-sisessed ��: $250. And it was Mr.
Mansor. who submitted Mr. Cuthber. ��
name to the charter committee. Mr.
Manson has more partisanship ta hi*
heart than he has tbe interests of the
, City of Pnnce Rupert, as was proved
, by his behavior a: Victoria."
About the Machine
Recalling tbe affair of the License
By-law Alderman Pattullo declared that
Aldermar. Hilditch and Alderr.ar. .*- tl
had stuck out for a system of machine
rule. "There are some fire sepoirr.er_��
of machine rule men here." he sa:d,
sweeping a glance round tbe platform.
"You kr.om perfectly mell that Jack
Kirkpatrick and II. M. Stephens had
no intention of going up for aldermen
until this matte.* came up 1 have a
friendly rtf-rc 'or them both." he
added, "but I do think that they will
probably use tbeir aldermanie position
for party purposes."
Eirht  Hour Day. 13
A questioner rose :n the hall asking if
.-. ��ere customary ta Canada that mhec
tbe citoen* endorsed a policy ;t should
be earned out.
Alderman Pa::ul o-I ratal so.
Questx>D��r��� Did you carry out tbe
policy of an eight bou; day for $S in

Aldermar. Pattullo���Tbe city council
has absolutely lived up to this in framing

UUMtnttaaiy ability ;ha: some -wple

'��� trail He rnrtitiid ta think the
first city counrl of Pltaca Rur<rt was
up against a stiff propositior. and that
tbey had done very .f;. _t_K lht
circumstances.
So Strinrt on Him Now
D.   W    Morr.sy  who rtid  that  tbe
last time he ran for council he was
an employee of tbe G. T. P. which had
made people say he had strings or.
him. now claimed an absolutely free
candidature. He stood up for Mr.
Manson as a clean principled man well
fit to be Mayor. He praised tbe first
council as a body of tbe very* best men
available at tbe time tbey were elected,
and remarked on ho�� gradually criticism
had developed in the press. '
"The Beuatifu! Bunch"
Touching on tbe G. T. P* assessment
Mr. Morr:*-*y went on to enlarge upon
tbe old story of the Bank of Montreal's
withdra��al of their offer of $500,000 on
bearing tha: the G. T. P. were disputing -
the assessment.
"That Alderman Pattullo could have
the face to say tha: the Manager of
the Bank of Montreal had come through ,
with the loan late because of the beau-
tiful bunch of aldermen they had at
Prince Rupert, was an example." said
Mr. Morrisey. "of brass beyond belief."
���'The fact was that the manager of!
the bank had come from Victoria and
laid down certain eonditioa�� on which
tbe loan was to be granted.
Alderman Pattullo interrupting "That
is not true!"
Mr. Morrisey went or. to empbasiie
tbe city's need for openings to the
waterfront from Second avenue through
tkt reserve, and at Seventh and Eleventh
streets. He intends to stick out for
these if elected.
"And." he aaid. "though  a Liberal
of Liberals 1 say that  :! Premier McBride is behind the efforts to negotiate |
artti the G. T. P. over the assessment ,
difficulty. 1 am proud of him."
Question Let Loose
Here Aldermar. Pattullo stepped for-'
ward to a��k the question regarding the
street ends.   * Would it not have been
battar  to   have   had   these  provided
balm the toa-nsite was sold when the I
government could have done th-s?"
Mr. Morrisey replied that this aaa I
true but the best diplomat in all Canada. |
���*.-.. Mr. J. H. Bacon, had seen to -t I
that the G. T. P. got the advantage)
here.
Seiting tbe chance while Alderman j
Pattullo ma* up a workman in the-
audience sent up a slip of paper with!
these questions for him.
1. "Did not the same men ��orkng
for the city work ten hours for $3.50.      ;
This Aldermar. Pattullo said he would
DM answer, becaus  he did not know,
for certain.
2. Have you a Chinaman employed
ta your household?"
"I refuse to answer this." said Alderman Pattullo. "unleas the writer
comes up on the platform."
The man did *o.        ^^^^^_jj___
Aldermaff Pattullo explained that as
every' woman could understand the
difficulty of getting -somen for housework ��as resj-onaible for his employing
a Chinaman. Whenever he could get
a capable woman, he mould enagae one.
Empire and Pattullo
Mr. S. M. Nemton waa then called
upon by the chairman to address the
meeting. He sromplained ol the criticism
that had beer, launched at the Empire,
and attacked Alderman Pattullo on a
wide range of subject... deferring to
Alderman Pattullo's assertion that the
platform party representea machine
politic* he said that the aldermen and
a number of others had sent a representative to him to try to buy up the
Empire a fern month* ago to make a
grit organ of it. "And they could not
buy me." he added. "They could not
buy me. They hambooiled me for
months but they could not buy the
Empire. What did they do? They
went off and bought the Optimist."
Loud laughter.
Made Football of Smith
Declaring that he had done his best
aim ays for the city during hi* term of
office, and intended to continue the
even tenor of hi* m-ay if re-elected.
Aldermar. Smith gave hi* support to
Mr. Manson "Aldermar Pattullo."
he said, "has been making a football of
me. I don't knom ��hy. over the delay
in the light plant. There mere other
members   of  that   1-ght   committee  as
much to blame a* I may have been.
My effort has ever been to further the
"nterests of Prince Rupert and to try-
to bring about a settlement of the
G. T. P* difficulty. That is why I am
running again this year."
Alderman Smith concluded with a
reference to a reported remark of
.Aldermar. Pattullo's at a recent meeting
to the effect that he and Alderman
Mobley were the best men for the
council that ever happened. Alderman
Smith thought this rather a confident
assertion.
Dr. Clayton in his address referred
to the telephone system. He thought
that the dividend obtained should go
into the pockets of the people mho
maintained the system by subscribing
to it.
Challenge to Pattullo
"I challenge Alderman Pattullo to
shorn me where I have ever used my
political influence to further my omn
ends," said M. M. Stephens who denied
that he and J. Kirkpatrick mere partisans
though member*- of the Conservative
association. II. If. Stephens declared
he mas prouder about his connection
with that association than if he held
shares in the Optimist.
That the city was handed over to
the Bank of Montreal Mr. Stephens
was sure. That bold challenge of
Alderman Pattullo's to Mr. Hays to
dare to knock the city debenture issue
was an example of how Alderman
Pattullo carried the chip on his shoulder.
Down on City Solicitor
Mr. Stephens ment on to criticise
Alderman Naden and his absences from
couucil and also recalled the story about
his having left Greenmood while still
its member and represented that city
for tmo years mhile he mas in Prince
Rupert.
A voice interrupted mithi "Tell us
mhat you are going to do?"
"Certainly." returned Mr. Stephens,
"one thing that I shall do if elected is
to endeavor to place the offices of this
city in an efficient manner, and the
first thing I shall do will be to ask for
the resignation of tbe city solicitor if
it if not in already."
Mr. Stephen* Cot Heckled
Mr W. E. Williams, of the legal firm
of William* <fc Manson rose in the body
of the hall to ask Mr. Stephens to define
the ground of his objection to the
present city solicitors.
"Well. I think the city requires the
service* of men. not youngsters," he
���tarted to say. when the meeting suddenly livened up. There were cries ol
"Rotten"; "The boys can do the work
all right". "Were you never young
yourself?" and Mr. Stephens changed
hi* tactic*.
To several specific charges of incompetent legal advice. Mr. Williams
gave a straight denial. Mr. Stephens
then said he thought the solicitors were
paid too much for the services they
rendered.
An Amusing Break
The la*t speaker for the evening ma*
Alderman Hilditch. He announced himself as m favor of the candidature of
Mr. Manson for Mayor.
He deprecated the use of the argument
that Mr. Manaon ma�� unfit for the
mayoral office on account of the fact
that he would be am ay for two months
of the year. "The Mayor is not the
whole thing. If Mr. Manson went
away for two months they mould not
even miss him." Thi* slip |et him in
for great merriment.
Amused or Abused?
Very briefly 0. W. Kerr announced
his candidature. "We have all been
amused and some ot us have been
abus-ed." he said. "Unlike Mr. Kirkpatrick 1 cannot min votes by my good
looks nor my pretty speeches. But 1
mill do my best for the city if elected,
and I hope to have your support." The
meeting closed with cheers for Mansor,
and counter cheers for Mobley.
