(Special to the Optimist)
| London, Jan. 5. -The London police
Jre determined to make a clean sweep
If the anarchists in the city this time.
They   hate  surrounded   the  house   of
Jtwo men, comrades of those who met
Jtheir death like rats in a trap when the
Ibuilding  in   Sydney   street   was   fired,
land they will shoot them dead if any
���attempt is made to escape.   After the
I firing of the building these two men took
[refuge in this particular houBe and the
I police are determined that  they shall
| not escape them.
Continental Press Jibes
The London papers are full of the
jibes of the continental papers concerning the muddle which the police made
of their last raid upon the anarchists,
and it is reported lhat this form of
attach has stimulated the force to tuke
decisive action and leave not u stone
unturned until London is rid of the
anarchists.
Will Attack Headquarters
They have now been searching for
anarchists for two days and it is reported
that they next intend to attack the
headquarters. The entire populace is
in a state of excitement. Many people
have auspended work to watch the
operations of the police.
TWO TOWNS
SWALLOWED UP
Special to The Optimist
St. Petersburg, Jan. 5 A message received at Tashkent, in
Russian Turkestan, says that
there are unconfirmed rumors to
the effect that the towns of Prx-
hevalsk and Pishpek, territory of
Semiryetchnenak, were destroyed in yesterday's earthquake, and
a lake has been formed on the
site of the former place. Each
town had a population of about
eight thousand people.
CHILDREN FOUND
WITH DYNAMITE
WERE   PLAYING   WITH   DEADLY
EXPLOSIVE ON STREET
I City Engineer la Instituting an Investigation to Find Out Who la the
Careless Party Leaving Dynamite
Around -A Terrible Risk.
Found yesterday at the corner of
.McBride street and Eighth avenue���
I half a stick ol dynamite. Owner may
[have same on application to Mr. Mc-
farlane, sanitary inspector. The dynamite is ,i little damaged by the teeth
of the small girl who picked it up and
begun to chew it thinking it was candy
and the little boy who was helping
her, but it can no doubt be repaired.
Could the children have been repaired,
however, supposing that half stick
had got busy between their smull
teeth? That's the question for the
owner of the dynamite to answer when
he calls for it.
City Engineer Duvis is making a very
thorough investigation lo try and trace
the person who can be so careless with
high explosives as to leave thi-m around
for thc children to get at. Certainly
the dynamite is not city stuff. As there
is no work going on near where it was
found it is difficult to trace its origin.
Those handling dynamite are once
more wurnnd to keep it stowed away
with proper care so thut the youngsters
may be protected from the cruel harm
thai might come to them through
innocently playing with (he deadly stuff.

WEEKS DURING OFFICE
Knights of Pythias to Meet
A speciul meeting of the Knighla of
Pythias is called for Friday night at
H o'clock in their hull in the Helgerson

Was Away Ten Days Looking After
Wood worth Lake Water Supply and
Two Weeks on City and Private
Business Combined.
The truth of the statement made by
Mr. William Munson in the Opera Houston Tuesday in support of his proposal
to leave the city for two months to
attend to his duties as M. P. P. for Skeena
that "the present Mayor has been absent seven weeks in seven months,"
was contradicted by Mayor Stork this
morning.
"I wus out of town for seven weeks
during my term of office." he said. "On
one occasion I was away for ten days
at Victoria with the city solicitor and
Mr Agnew, fighting to gel the water
supply for the 'city from Woodworth
Lake. The only other occasion was
the two weeks und three days I was
away in November, when I combined
civic and private business. On that
ot-ension I had business to transact
for the city in connection with the
electric light installation.
"I was away for u trip to California
eurly in the year, but lhat was before
the election. Mr. Manson's friends are
probably trying to confuse that trip
with my term of office. It is an illustration of the loose statements which
are being made by Mr. Manson and his
supporters."

Ottawa, Jan. fi. .Special) Mayor
Hopewell has been returned for his
third term as the first citizen of Ottuwu.
COttEGf BURNED DOWN
STUDENTS NARROW ESCAPE
Left the Building by Jumping From Windows���One
Teacher Broke Back Jumping From Third Floor
���-No   Water   on   Account   of   Frost.
(Special to the Optimist)
Montreal, Jan. 5.���St. Joseph's College ut Granby was burned to the ground
today. The outbreak occurred when
the classes were in session and the
utmost consternation and confusion
ensued when the alarm was given.
The students did not wait to rush to
the door. They made for the windows
and got out in that precarious way.
One of the teachers in attempting to
jump from a window on the third floor
broke his back. The flames spread with
wonderful   rapidity,   and  it  was  only
by virtue of the agility und fearlessness
of the students that they escaped
becoming burning sacrifices.
Mains Were Frozen
At the time of the outbreak the
mercury wus ut twenty-five below and
it was impossible to get a sufficient
supply of water. The mains were frozen
und the supply within the house waa
entirely inadequate. Whut wuter waa
-brought into pluy hi��d little or no effect
in checking the ravages of the fire.
The cause of the fire has not been
discovered nor has the damage been
estimated but the latter must be heavy.
WANT ZARELLI
UNDER ARREST
MAN WHO MADE SERIOUS CHARGES FAILS TO APPEAR
City Solicitor Manson Makes Application for Order for His Arrest���
Magistrate Will Think About It-
Is Wanted on Another Charge.
Delmont Zarelli who should have
uppeured in court today to answer to a
gaming house charge was not present
this morning when his name was called.
City Solicitor Manson strongly impressed upon the court the urgency
of enforcing the summons on this man,
and asked that he should be found
und brought before the court forthwith,
and not released except upon very heavy
bail.
"I think," said Mr. Munson, "that the
ends of justice will be very well served
by this proceeding as this mun is wuntcd
as a very important witness in another
euse furthcoming, and it is most desirable
l hut he should bc at hand when wanted
then."
Mugislrale Carss said he would see
about it. He was busy ut the moment
with the papers of the N. P. Smith

In thc interests of Alderman Frank Mobley for Mayor

Seats Reserved for Ladies
SWEDE FLIRTS
WITH DEATH
SHOT INTO AIR FROM WAGON ON
THIRD AVENUE
Soared for About Twenty Yards and
Crashed Into Mud and Rock���
Comrades Thought Him Dead, but
He Walked Off.
A slight concussion that would kill
an Englishman would merely intoxicate
an Irishmun, it is said, und a precipitate
jerk into space thut would iron out
the frnme of any ordinary mortul to
the flatness of u shirt front would merely
tuke the form of u morning exercise for
the hardy Swede. This interesting fact
was exemplified this morning on Third
avenue.
One of these redoubtable sons of Thor
was careering gallantly down the nvenue
upon one of the Iressle wagons when
it suddenly stopped. Young Thor shot
into the balmy air with the grace of
a bird and the velocity of a rocket. All
would have been well had he been muster
of the gravitating process but the forces
of nature were against him. After
continuing his flight for a modest twenty
yanls or so, the eurth impelled him to
return to his native sphere. He returned
und with such promptitude as to give
rise to ihe belief umong the spectators
thut he was digging his own gruve.
He urrived in the earth's embrace all
in a lump and displaced us much rock
and earth as a moderate charge of
dynamite.
For u moment he lay there effortless,
und the crowd���by this time there
were al least two witness of the cutus-
tnsplis- ruslieil forwurd in I body
prepured to enshroud the fuce of the
dead ralher than render lirst aid to the
injured. Without intimation Thor
raised his shnggy head, shook tie mane
of mud from his neck ur-d si oulders,
penetrated the dungeon of unconsciousness with the tremor of his eye. and
in divers ways munifested the fnct
thut he had only been fiirting with
death. Gathering the remnants of his
body together he rose unassisted to his
feet, and wilh u ludricroiis grunt of
contempt at the eccentric wagon that
hud cuuseil his downfall sulked off
to resume his huzardoiis occupation.
In future the Mayor will be authorized
to engage extra help when required
for pressure nf work in the city offices. ��� .t/Astyj* /Vfis-^isssWMUtllWti^^

MAYORAL CONTEST
j      CONTINUED FROM I'AC.K 5
good   looks  than  upon  good  speeches
to land him in the council.
Pattullo and Policy
Alderman Pattullo's name was received with loud applause. Acknowledging Mr. Manson's courtesy in asking
hirri upon the platform. Alderman
Pattullo got swiftly into his stride:
"Mr. Manson," he said, "suys il was
difficult for us to inaugurate u policy
at the outset of our term nf office in
the first, council year. I say it was not
so hard to inaugurate a policy as it
proved to carry it out.
"Mr.   Manson."  he  went   on.   "has
quoted   figures  intending  to  muke  us
look   like  thirty  cents,   but   his   own
policy  strikes  me us  very  much  like
that  of G.  W. Morrow who when he
was running for mayor said he would
immediately   Inaugurate   a   policy   of
s|N*ntlitig u million dollars for the purpose
of  catching   the   working man's   vole.
Was not  Mr. Manson's policy inspired
by Q, W. Morrow?"   (Oh! Oh'-
Parks and Sewers
"Why should we he forced now to
make o deal with thc Q, T. P. for park
sites which we ought to huve hud anyway
hud Mr. Manson properly watched the
city's interests with the government?"
asked Alderman Pattullo.   Mr. Manson
had  referred  to sewers���yes,  but   the
people cried out for a puy roll.   They
would not  huve upuy roll so soon in
the  city   hud   the  council   waited   to
formulate   u   sewerage   system   before
starting work.    It would take a long
whifc to start up the sewer plans, yet
tne  council   wus  already  at  work  on
them.   Before next yeur is out Ihe system   will   be  well  started  und   funds
raised.
Regarding finances Alderman Pattullo expressed the opinion that Prince
Rupert is in a very strong position.
The Bank of Montreul wus interested
in the city now to the amount of $500,-
000, und would have 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 the lighting problem.
To put the proposition on a paying
busis was the problem. As for the
delay if there was any delay it was due
to Alderman Smith who as chairman
of the committee kept wanting the
matter adjourned. When the other
members of the committee took the
matter in hand it was quickly started
in earnest. Now the light is nearly
here," went on Alderman Pattullo,
"and I have no doubt indeed that if
Mr. Manson were elected Muyor we
should huve light right away���now that
the work is done. But he would want
the credit for soing it."
Assessment Again
Alderman Pattullo referred to the
G. T. P. assessment which Mr. Manson
had said Mr. Cuthbert had done very
well. "Certainly for some people he
did very well," said Alderman Pattullo.
"I could show you a lol belonging to
the G. T. P. Development company
assessed at $10 and within thirty feet
of it one otherwise owned, which is
assessed ut $260. And it was Mr.
Manson who submitted Mr. Cuthbert's
nume to the charter committee. Mr.
Manson has more partisanship in his
heart thun he has the interests of the
City of Prince Rupert, as was proved
by his behavior at Victoria."
About the Machine
Recalling the affair of the License
By-law Alderman Pattullo declared that
Alderman Hilditch and Alderman Smith
hud stuck out for a system of machine
rule. "There are some fine sepcimens
I of machine rule men here," he said,
sweeping a glance round the platform.
| "You know perfectly well that Jack
Kirkpatrick and M. M. Stephens had
no intention of going up for aldermen
until this matter came up. 1 have u
friendly regard for them both," he
added, "but I do think that they will
probably use their aldermanie position
for party purposes."
Eight Hour Day, $3
A questioner rose in the hall asking if
it were customary in Canada that when
the citizens endorsed a policy it should
be carried out.
Alderman Pattullo���I think so.
Questioner--Did you carry out the
policy of an eight hour day for $3 in
city work?
Alderman Pattullo���The city council
hus absolutely lived up to this in framing
their contracts but if you want me to
say thut nuy man has not a --erfect
right to do us he likes after his eight
hours are finished then I will never
do il. I would rather go down to
defeat than do anything that would
Interfere with the liberty of the subject so.
With which incident Aldermun Pattullo's address closed.
Faint Praise for Council
Mr. W. S. Benson wus also prepared
tti  vote for  Mr.   Manson  because  he
thought  he was the best mun in the
l field.   He thought they wanted a whole
j lot   from   the   Provincial   Government
| just ut this time, and lie would say the
j same thing even if they hud u Liberal
administration ut Victoria.   One ol the
things they did want was u town hull
site.   Thut wus no joke he said.
"I should say it is not u joke," interrupted Aldermun Pattullo. "because
we now huve to pay for it."
Continuing Mr. Benson did not think
Mr. Mobley was endowed with the
extruordinury ability thut some people
were inclined to credit him with. He
ulso thought thut Mr. M. M. Stephens
wus rdiculous in stuting that they
were now in the hands of the Bank of
Montreal. He inclined to think the
first city council of Prince Rupert was
up against a stiff proposition and that
they had done very well under the
circumstances.
No Strings on Him Now
D.  W.  Morrisy  who said  thut   the
last time he ran for council he was
an employee of the G. T. P. which hud
made people say he had strings on
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 the first
council as a body of the very best men
available at the time they were elected,
and remarked on how gradually criticism
had developed in the press. ?
"The Beuatiful Bunch"
Touching on the G. T. P. assessment
Mr. Morrisey went on to enlarge upon
the old story of the Bank of Montreal's
withdrawal of their offer of $500,000 on
hearing that the G. T. P. were disputing
the assessment.
"That Alderman Pattullo could have
the face to say that the Manager of
the Bank of Montreal had come through
with the loan lute because of the beautiful 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 conditions on which
the loan was to be granted.
Alderman Pattullo interrupting "That
is not true!"
Mr. Morrisey went on to emphasize
the city's need for openings to the
waterfront from Second avenue through
the reserve, and at Seventh and Eleventh
streets. He intends to stick out for
these if elected.
"And," he said, "though a Liberal
of Liberals I ssy that il Premier McBride is behind the efforts to negotiate
with the G. T. P. over the assessment
difficulty, I am proud of him."
Question Let Loose
Here Alderman Pattullo stepped forward to ask the question regarding the
street ends. "Would it not have been
better to have had these provided
before the townsite was sold when the
government could huve done this?"
Mr. Morrisey replied thnt this wus
true but the best diplomat in all Canada,
viz., Mr. J. H. Bacon, hud seen to it
thst the G. T. P. got the advuntage
here.
Seizing the chance while Alderman
Pattullo wus up n workman in the
audience sent up a slip of paper with
these questions for him.
1. "Did not the same men working
for the city work ten hours for $3.50.
This Alderman Pattullo said he would
not answer, because he did not know
for certuin.
2. "Huve you a Chinaman employed
in your household?"
"I refuse to answer this," said Alderman Puttullo, "unless the writer
comes up on the plutform."
The mun did so.
Alderman" Puttullo explained that as
every woman could understand thc
difficulty of getting women for housework wus responsible for his employing
a Chinuman. Whenever he could get
a capable woman, he would enagae one.
Empire and Pattullo
Mr. S. M. Newton waa then called
upon by the chairman to nddress the
meeting. He complained of the criticism
thut hud been luunched at the Empire,
und uttucked Aldermun Puttullo on u
wide runge of subjects. Referring to
Aldermun Pattullo's assertion thut the
platform purty represented machine
politics he said thut the uldermen and
u number of others hud sent u rep-
resentutive to him to try to buy up the
Empire u few months ugo to make a
grit orgun of it. "And they could not
buy me," he udded. "They could not
buy me. They bnmboozled me for
months but they could not buy the
Empire. Whut did they do? They
went off and bought the Optimist."
(Loud laughter.)
Made Football of Smith
Declaring that he had done his best
always for the city during his term of
office, und intended to continue the
even tenor of his way if re-elected,
Alderman Smith gave his support to
Mr. Manson. "Alderman Pattullo,"
he said, "has been making a football of
me. I don't know why, over the delay
in the light plant. There were other
members  of  that   light  committee  ns
much to blame as I may have been.
My effort has ever been to further the
interests 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."
Aldermun Smith concluded with a
reference to a reported remark of
Alderman 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 who
maintained the system by subscribing
to it.
Challenge to Pattullo
"I challenge Aldermon Pattullo to
show me where I have ever used my
political influence to further my own
ends," said M. M. Stephens who denied
that he and J. Kirkpatrick were partisans
though members of the Conservative
association. M. M. Stephens declared
he was 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 went on to criticise
Alderman Naden and his absences from
couucil and also recalled the story about
his having left Greenwood while still
its member and represented that city
for two years while he was in Prince
Rupert.
A voice interrupted with: "Tell us
whut 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 the city solicitor if
it is not in already."
Mr. Stephens Got Heckled
Mr. W. E. Williams, of the legal firm
of Williams Si 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
services ot men, not youngsters," he
started to say, when the meeting suddenly livened up. There were cries of
"Rotten"; "The boys can do the work
all right"; "Were you never young
yourself?" and Mr. Stephens changed
his tactics.
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 last speaker for the evening wus
Alderman Hilditch. He announced himself as in favor of the candidature of
Mr. Manson for Mayor.
He tleprecated the use of the argument
that Mr. Manson waa unfit for the
mayoral oflice on account of the fact
that he would be away for two months
of the year. "The Mayor is not the
whole thing. If Mr. Manson went
away for two months they would not
even miss him." This slip let him in
for great merriment.
Amused or Abuaed?
Very briefly G. W. Kerr announced
his candiduture. "We have all been
amused und some ol us have been
abused," he snid. "Unlike Mr. Kirkpatrick I cannot win votes by my good
looks nor my pretty speeches. But I
will do my best for the city if elected,
and I hope to have your support." The
meeting closed with cheers for Manson
and counter cheers for Mobley.

CHILDREN FOUND
WITH DYNAMITE
WERE   PLAYING   WITH   DEADLY
EXPLOSIVE ON STREET
City Engineer la Instituting an Investigation to Find Out Who la the
Careless Party Leaving Dynamite
Around���A Terrible Risk.
Found yesterday at the corner of
McBride street and Eighth avenue-
half a stick of dynamite. Owner may
'huve same on application to Mr. Mc-
farlane, sanitary inspector. The dynamite is u little dumuged by the teeth
of the small girl who picked it up and
began to chew it thinking it wus candy
and the little boy who was helping
her, but il cun no doubt be repaired.
Could the children have been repaired,
however, supposing that half stick
hud got busy between their small
teeth? That's the question for the
owner of the dynamite to answer when
he culls for it.
City Engineer Davis is making a very
thorough investigation to try and trace
the person who can be so careless with
high explosives us to leuve them nround
for the children to get at. Certainly
the dynumite is not city stuff. As there
is no work going on nenr where it wus
found it is difficult to truce its origin.
Thoae handling dynamite ure once
'ire wauled to keep it stowed away
with proper cure so thut the youngsters
may be protected from thc cruel harm
that might come to them through
innocently playing with the deadly stuff.

WAS NOT OUT OF TOWN SEVEN
WEEKS DURING OFFICE
Waa Away Ten Days Looking After
Wood worth Lake Water Supply and
Two Weeks on City and Private
Business Combined.
The truth of the statement made by
Mr. William Munson in the Opera House
on Tuesday in support of his proposal
to leave the city for two months to
attend to his duties as M. P. P. for Skeenu
that "the present Mayor has been absent seven weeks in seven months,"
was contradicted by Mnyor Stork this
morning.
"I wus out of town for seven weeks
during my term of office," he said. "On
one occasion I was away for ten days
nt Victoria with the city solicitor und
Mr Agnew, fighting to gel the wuter
supply for the city from Woodworth
Luke. The only other occusion was
the two weeks und three duys I was
away in November, when I combined
civic und privute business. On that
occasion I had business to trunsuct
for the city in connection with the
electric light installation.
"I was away for u trip to California
eurly in the yeur, but thut wus before
the election. Mr. Munson's friends ure
probably trying to confuse that trip
with my term of office. It is un illus
trution of the loose stutements which

on
(Special to the Optimist)
Montreal, Jan. 5.���St. Joseph's College ut Granby was burned to the ground
toduy. The outbreak occurred when
the clusses were in session und the
utmost consternation and confusion
ensued when the alarm was given.
The students did not wait to rush to
the door. They made for the windows
and got out in that precarious way.
One of the teachers in attempting to
jump from a window on the third floor
broke his buck. The flames spread with
wonderful   rapidity,  and  it  was  only
by virtue of the agility und fearlessness
of the students that they escaped
becoming burning sacrifices.
Mains Were Frozen
At the time of the outbreak the
mercury wus ut twenty-five below and
it wus impossible to get a sufficient
supply of wuter. The mains were frozen
und the supply within the house was
entirely inadequate. What water was
brought into play had little or no effect
in checking the ravages of the fire.
The cause of the fire has not been
discovered nor has the damage been
estimated but the latter must be heavy.

Delmont Zarelli who should have
uppeured in court today to answer to a
gaming house charge was not present
this morning when his name was called.
City Solicitor Manson strongly impressed upon the court the urgency
of enforcing the summons on this man,
and asked that he should be found
and brought before the court forthwith,
and not released except upon very heavy
bail.
"I think," said Mr. Munson, "that the
ends of justice will be very well served
by this proceeding us this man is wanted
us a very important witness in another
ease forthcoming, and it is most desirable
thut he should be nt hand when wanted
then."
Magistrate Cans said he would see

SWEDE FLIRTS
WITH DEATH
SHOT INTO AIR FROM WAGON ON
THIRD AVENUE
Soared for About Twenty Yards and
Crashed Into Mud and Rock���
Comrades Thought Him Dead, but
He Walked Off.
A slight concussion that would kill
an Englishmun would merely intoxicate
an Irishman, it is said, and a precipitate
jerk into space thut would iron out
the frnme of uny ordinury mortal to
the flatness of a shirt front would merely
take the form of u morning exercise for
the hurdy Swede. This interesting fact
wus exemplified this morning on Third
avenue.
One of these redoubtable sons of Thor
wus careering gallantly down the avenue
upon one of the tressle wagons when
it suddenly stopped. Young Thor shot
into the balmy air with the grace of
a bird und the velocity of u rocket. All
would have been well had he been muster
of the gravitating process but the forces
of nature were aguinst him. After
continuing his flight for a modest twenty
yards or so, the earth impelled him to
return to his native sphere. He returned
und with such promptitude as to give
rise to ihe belief umong the spectators
thut he wus digging his own crave.
He urrived in the earth's embrace all
in u lump und displuccd us much rock
und earth as u modernte charge of
dynamite.
For u moment he luy there effortless,
und the crowd -by this time there
were ui least two witness of the catastrophe rushed forward in a body
prepared to enshroud the face of the
dead rather thun render first aid to the
injured. Without intimation Thor
raised his shaggy head, shook tie mane
of mud from his neck ard si oulden,
penetrated the dungeon of unconsciousness with the tremor of his eye. and
in divers ways manifested the fnct
that he had only been flirting with
death. Gathering the remnants of his
body together he rose tinus* isted to his
feet, and with u ludricroiis grunt of
contempt, at the eccentric wagon thut
had caused his downfull stalked off
to resume his hazardous occupation.
In future the Mnyor will be utithnrised
to enguge extra help when required
for pressure of work in the city offices. -a&gg--^

General Booth's Love Story
General Booth has just observed the
twentieth anniversary of the death of
his wife, the "mother" of the Salvation
Army, and pays a touching tribute to
her memory.
He recalls to mind the day���April
19, 1852-when "I met my beloved
wife, und commenced a relationship
which has lusted from that doy to
this, und which I um reckoning will
continue to the closing hours of my
eurthly history, and be renewed ut the
gates of the celestial city. We met
thut evening ut a sort of public festi
vul of some Methodist people with
whom we were both associated. Between the tea drinking and the speaking Catherine Mumford was introduced
to me by a mutual friend, who spoke
of her in terms of the strongest admiration.
"No doubl," proceeded the general,
"I voluntarily threw my heart's door
wide open, not knowing perhaps whut
I wus doing, und she, not unwillingly,
equally unconscious of whut she wus
doing, walked in and took the first
place there. From that place she was
never dislodged nnd never will be."
Gencrul Booth says there were difficulties in the way ot an engagement.
His position was not equal to the responsibility of keeping a wife and home
in comfort.
"What could I do with a wife? In
the first place, I was without any
settled income, and had no immediate prospect of finding one, having
just separated myself not only from
business, but from the people in whose
ministry 1 hud the prospect of a call.
"However, we looked carefully ut
euch other, und ut our circumstunces.
and found thut we were both quite
prepared to wait uny number of years
thut might be necessnry before mar-
riuge: und with this understanding
we entered into un cngugetnenl that
lusted for nearly forty years in this
world, und will, 1 fondly believe, last
forever in the world to come."
Three years, as u matter of fact,
elapsed before the  murriuge was cele-
prowess to the end of life, but the
physique and form of her children will
not be influenced in the least.
"The son of the bruwny-armed blacksmith, us is well known, does not inherit the huge muscles of his father.
In the same way the daughter of a
broad flat-shouldered and heavy-handed
athletic woman of today will revert to
the small hands and narrow bottle
shoulders of the young woman of the
early Victorian period if she is brought
up on early Victorian lines."
To Honor Women of South
To commemorate the sacrifice, privation and bravery of the women of the
South during the Civil War, ten Southern states will erect���in their capital
cities���monuments in bronze or marble,
replicas of the original design made by
Miss Belle Kinney, a young daughter of
the old South. Miss Kinney's father
was a Confederate soldier, her mother
is a Southern woman, and she herself
was born in Nashville, Tenn., about
twenty-three years ago. This young
woman, whose art education has been
entirely in the United States, hus thus
secured the largest contract for sculpture work ever given to any woman,
says a writer in the January Hampton's
Magazine.
The monument is a group of three
figures, ull heroic. The central form is
that of Fame bending slightly to set
the laurel wreath upon the brow of a
figure at the right representing the
Southern woman, who is placing the
pulm of victory upon the breast of a
dying soldier boy. The boy is struggling to raise once more the torn and
scarred buttle flag which he has been
currying. The group is an attempt to
reveal the heroism, sympathy, and
steadfast loyalty ol the Southern women
to their soldiers in the field.

Female Beauty Safe
Mr. John C,ruy, secreiury of the an-
thriipistiii-iris-.il committee of the British
association does not see uny reuson for
the scare cuused by stntenients that
unless the modern athletic woman
radically changes her habits, in u few
years she will be indistinguishable as
regards hi-r figure from a man.
Mr. Cray says the English womun's
fondness for athletics, despite the slight
chnnge it produces in her physique,
is not bringing about any premancnt
I deteriorution in the beauty of the
feminine form and therefore there is
just as little fear of any such chunge
. in thc American woman.
"Although,"   he  Bays,   "the  present
I fashion of women indulging in athletics
I has influenced the modern woman's
figure, brondening the shoulders and
waist perhaps and enlarging her hands
and feet, such changes are almost us
temporary as the fashions which cause
them. An athletic woman may carry

OUR DAILY RECIPES
Stewing Raw Oysters
Do not make the mistake of serving
large oysters raw at a woman's luncheon.
Most women prefer blue points or cherry
stones.
Raw oysters are more palatable on
their own shell than on handsome
oyster plates. They must be thoroughly
chilled, and prefcrubly should rest on
I bed of shaved ice.
The lemon with raw oysters should
be cut in quarters in the rind. Or in
the centre of the shell have half a
lemon with the centre partially filled
with horseradish.

The Council's Eight Hour Clause
If any of the politicians who inspired the attack on Aldermun Pattullo's labor
programme at the Manson meeting hoped to score from it, they ure doomed to
disappointment. The inquiry which Alderman Pattullo usked permission to
make before giving B final answer to his questioners shows that in the contracts let
by the council there is inserted a hard and fast clause making it impossible for
any contractor to pay less than $:i.00 for an eight hour day or to work his laborers
longer thun eight hours out of the twenty-four. This hurd and fast clause was
drafted by the city solicitors in response to a request of the Streets.Works, und
Property committee. Aldermun Pattallo is not a member of thut committee,
and his action in suspending a final unswer to the question sprung on him at Tuesday's meeting was the action of a man who prefers to be perfectly sure of his facts
before speakiiiR-.
The clause reads as follows:
"The contractor shall employ competent workmen for carrying out the
work, and shall pay a minimum wage of 37 1-2 cents per hour for ordinary
labor, and shall employ all labor on the understanding that eight hours shall j
constitute a day's work, and shall not ask nor permit uny laborer to work
for more than eight hours out of the twenty-four, und no shift shall exceed

Was it a freak of occultism or merely
a film of the mind? Thai wus the
question; the question that disturbed
the mind's peuce and checked the
regular beat of the heurt, like u cog in

foregathered on the wnterfront this
morning to drink in the glories of a
radient morn.
It was indeed a glorious morning.
The bay was like a mirror set in silver,
It is ridiculous for Mr. Manson to inform the electorate in one breath that
he is Prince Ru|>ert's one big best chance for Muyor, und in the next breath that,
if elected, he will not be missed from the city for u couple of months. The two
sayings do not harmonize.
There is not a laborer in the city's service however humble his work who'*'i,h the so*'  cloud banks above and
dare take such liberties with his job.   Why then should the Mayor be allowed  ���'*vnnd   ,rar'nR   ���hemH'lve-!   imo   ���*-

the townspeople had not recovered

If success crow ns their efforts und we judge Mr. Munson according to the course
which he pursued ut Victoriu during the considerution of Prince Rupert's churter

CHARGE AGAINST
SERGEANT REGAN
POLICE   COMMISSION    HELD    A
MEETING THIS AFTERNOON
Proceedings Brief- Sergt. Regan Denies Charges and Desires to Appear
Before Full Board-Meeting Adjourned.   Question of Legal Advice
At 1:30 p.m. today the police commissioners, Mayor Stork, chairman and
Aldrrman K. Mobley met in the City
Hall in connection with the charges
against Police Sergeant Regan who
was present.
Commissioner Mobley said that he
had called the meeting in order that
Sergt. Regan might have early opportunity of making his statement if he
desired, before the commissioners.
Sergt. Regan said briefly that he was
not guilty of any of the charges ugainst
him. He understood thut Mr. Halsey,
the third commissioner, would be in
the city by Tuesday, and desired an
adjourment until then in order that he
might give his defence before a full
board.
Mayor Stork mentioned that he had!
arranged by letter with Chief McCarvell |
thut those concerned in the case should \
be  summoned   to   appear   before   the
commission   at  10 a.m.  on  Saturday,
for a preliminary hearing of the charges
and defence.   This arrangement holds,
though an adjournment  will probably
be called for Tuesday if Mr. Halsey can
then be present.
Sergt. Regan stated that he was ready
at any time to give his defence in detail.
He asked in the event of there being a
lawyer employed by the eomplaincrs
the commissioners would require him
to have legal advice also.
Commissioner Mobley said he did
not think the commissioners required
legal advice for the preliminary hearing
at all events. Afterwards there would
be time for both sides lo call in lawyers
if need be.
This closed today's proceedings.

the deposed Chinese interpreter was

to identify cables signed by his lirm

the court wan left in a state of doubt
as to. whether they had been identified
or not.
Justice Murphy warned the witness
on several occasions that fourteen years
was the punishment for perjury but
he did not seem to mind the threat
greatly. After a gruelling examination
he at length admitted having received
one cable relating to Chinese coming
into British Columbia.

The Council's Eight Hour Clause
If any of the politicians who inspired the uttuck on Aldermun Puttullo's labor
programme at the Manson meeting hoped to score from it, they ure doomed to
disappointment. The inquiry which Alderman Pattullo asked permission to
make before giving a final answer to his questioners shows that in the contracts let
by the council there is inserted a hard and fast clause making it impossible for
any contractor to pay less than $3.00 for an eight hour day or to work his laborers
longer than eight hours out of the twenty-four. This hard and fast clause was
draftetl by the city solicitors in response to a request of the Streets,Works, and
Property committee. Alderman Pattallo is not a member of that committee,
and his action in suspending n final answer to the question sprung on him at Tuesday's meeting was the action of u mun who prefers lo be perfectly sure of his fuels
before speuking.
The Clause reads as follows:
"The contractor shall employ competent workmen for currying out the
work, und shull pay a minimum wife of 37 1-2 cents per hour for ordinury
labor, and shall employ ull labor on the understanding that eight hours shall
constitute a day's work, and shall not ask nor permit any laborer to work
for more than eight hours out of the twenty-four, und no shift shull exceed
eight hours of labor. . . .and no Asiatic labor shall be employed on the work."
This clause is inserted in every contract which the council makes. It effectively
disposes of any implied charge that any of the members of the council are not
consistently living up to their pledges for an eight hour day, u minimum wage
of $:).00, and the exclusion of Asiatics from civic work.

What Do The Workers Think
It is ridiculous for Mr. Manson to inform the electorate in one breath that
he is Prince Rupert's one big best chance for Mayor, and in the next breath that,
if elected, he will not he missed from the city for a couple of months. The two
sayings do not harmonize.
There is not a laborer in the city's service however humble his work who
dare lake such liberties with his job. Why then should the Mnyor be allowed
to do so? His job is not of less importance to the city, und he is better puid for it
thun is the luhorer.
It cannot be too clearly understood by the working men electors of Prince
Rupert that the Mayor is a salarietl official. His time is not his own. Like Alderman Smith who excuses his Infrequent attendance at the council by saying that
his time is bought and paid (or by a private firm, the Mayor's time is bought und
paid for by the city. He should be |irc|mred to sacrifice every other interest to
looking after lhe business of the city.
It is a misuse of fact�� to plead that Mayor Stork was uwuy from town twice j the end cume.
during his term of ollice.   With the exception nf two weeks in November when
the work nf the council was well under way. Mayor Stork's trips out of town were
all on civic business.   He was not uwuy looking after another job.   Mr. Manson's still in iheir m-n.i
duties as If, p. p. for Skeena. if properly attended to, will keep him busy fur four; cadence
months of this year. In addition to the two months ut Victoriu, he has official,strained their ears tti detect the eluiivel
trips to muke tO Stewart, the (Jus-en Charlotte Islands, lhe Skeena antl Bella Coola strains thev were not successful One

Munson in hi*, effluence be |sermilted to tlo what the humblest laborer might not
in his poverty? Cannot we find a free roan for the Job?
The labor unions huve ulwuys stood for the principle of "one mun -one job."
Every mun having u vote will be culled on to pay his share of the Mayor's salary.
They must Ne in it I hut in engaging a man fur the Job, thnt they elect one who
ran give his undivided services to the work of building up Prince Rupert.

SAMPLE  OF   WHAT  AN   EDITOR
HAS TO  PUT  UP WITH
Description of Something That Happened Near the Waterfront, as
Told by the Optimist Prose-poet���
What Does It Mean.
Was it a freak of occultism or merely
a film of the mind? That wus the
question; the question that disturbed
the mind's peace and checked the
regular beat of the heart, like a cog in
the wheel, of the aesthetic few who
foregathered on the waterfront this
morning to drink in the glories of a
radient morn.
It wus indeed a glorious morning.
The bay was like a mirror set in silver,
with the soft cloud banks above und
beyond trucing themselves into eccentric arabesque and al frescoes completing the celestial boudoir of the
ethereul nymphs. Everything danced
with joy and mirth to the soulful symphony of the brain's orchestra. The
music of mun wus brought into sweet
communion with the music of lhe spheres
nnd the lesson of the universe seemed
about to unfold its precious page when

Connelsville, Pa., Jan. 3.-The climux
of an unusual marital mixup in tne
Burns family came yesterday, when
George Burns eloped with his stepmother to get revenge on his father, who
ran away with his son's wife, last week.
Since the elder Burns and the younger
Mrs. Burns disuppeured. the son and
his stepmother have been searching for
them but without success. They were
supposed to be in Pittsburg, but the
police in thut city have been unable to
find them.
Peace had reigned in the Burns
household until the advent of the
younger Mrs. Burns. She wus u very
uttractive young woman and several
times the son returned home from work
at the coke ovens to find his wife and
father tete-a-tete. At rising time in
the Burns home the elder Burns and
the son's wife could not be found.
The two had crawled down a luddcr
and stolen away over u lawn.
Mr. Burns nnd his stepmother have
taken the affair philosophically, but
the townspeople hud not recovered
from the shock when the second one
came. They invited the neighbors
for supper and statetl that they were
e'oing away too. Nothing will make
the missing two so remorseful they
thought. So the man about 25 years
old und the womun more thun double
that age, boarded u truin for Pittsburg after announcing the fact in a
locul paper.

At 1:30 p.m. today the police commissioners, Mayor Stork, chairman and
Alderman F. Mobley met in the City
Hall in connection with the charges
ugainst Police Sergeant Regan who
was present.
Commissioner Mobley said that he
had called the meeting in order that
Sergt. Regan might have early opportunity of making his statement if he
desired, before the commissioners.
Sergt. Regan said briefly thut he was
not guilty of any of the charges ugainst
him. He understood thut Mr. Hulsey,
the third commissioner, would be in
the city by Tuesdny, and desired an
udjourment until then in order thut he
might give his defence before a full
board.
Mayor Stork mentioned that he hud
arranged by letter with Chief McCarvell
thut those concerned in the case should
be summoned to appear before the
commission at 10 a.m. on Saturday,
for u preliminury heuring of the charges
and defence. This arrangement holds,
though an adjournment will probably
be called for Tuesday if Mr. Halsey can
then be present.
Sergt. Regan stated that he was ready
at any time to give his defence in detail.
He asked in the event of there being a
luwyer employed by the complainers
the commissioners would require him
to huve legal advice ulso.
Commissioner Mobley said he did
not think the commissioners required
legal udvice for the preliminary heuring
at all events. Afterwards there would
be time for both sides to coll in lawyers
if need be.

the deposed Chinese interpreter wus
in the witness box ull yesterday and ull

to identify cables signed by his firm

the court was left in a state of doubt
as to. whether they had been identified
or not.
Justice Murphy warned the witness
on several occasions that fourteen yeurs

he did not seem to mind the threat

he at length admitted having received
one cable relating to Chinese coming
into British Columbia.

at the time of the shooting.
Edwards wus the man who got hold
of Gallagher after he had fired the fatal
shot and held on to him despite the
fact that Gallagher still had the revolver
in his hand. The prosecution charged
Gallagher with that particular offence
because they regarded it as easier to

Wilson (sowing, Agent
Montreal, Jan. 1.���Following a buttle
at the corner of St. David's lane and
St. James street, between an Irishman
and three Italians, all four needed medical attention. Two had to be sent
to the general hospital for repairs.
Lieut. Marwick, of the Chaboillez
street station, receiving a message that
a fight was in progress on the corner of
St. James street and St. David's lane,
sent out constables Judd and Filia-
trault. On their way to the scene the
constables met Patrick Shields, 26 years
of age, with a gash on the back of his
head and his right car split.
Shields, who said he had no home
in the city, told the constables he was
looking for a police station because
three Italians were lying dead in the
lane and should be removed to the
morgue. Judd and Filiatrault hurried
over to the corner of St. David's lane
and lying there, a few yards from St.
James street, found a man with his
face battered almost to pulp. The
other two, according to a couple of
men who witnessed the row, were almost
as badly used up.
From what the police could learn
Shields was passing along St. David's
lane when one Italian spoke to him.
The Irishman resented the remark
and the three Italians turned on him.
One, armed with a razor, slashed the
Irishmun across the right ear and on
the back of the head. Then followed
the row, in which the Italians were
beaten, and battered into inconsciousness
by Shields.

Berlin, Jan. 2.���Experiments have
recently made here and in other parts
of the empire in connection with the
manufacture of a new fuel out of the
papyrus and other reeds which cover
35.000 square miles, on the upper
reaches of the White Nile, and obstruct
navigation. It is proposed to dry and
"disintegrate" these reeds which are
generally known as "sudd" reducing
them to powder, which will be compressed into briquettes.
No binding material is necessary.
An Anglo-German syndicate has been
formed to promote the manufacture.
Representatives of the Soudan Government and the British and German
Admiralties were present at the trials.
The promoters claim that the sudd
fuel can be put on the market 35 to 40
per cent cheaper than coal.

Inside was a man, sitting on a three-

They stole out softly, closing the

New Butcher Business
Our citizens will be interested in
knowing that Mr. George Frizzell, the
pioneer butcher of Northern B. C, who
established the business of Morrow &
Frizzell in Port Essington over ten
years ago, will open a large new butcher
shop in the Mclntyre Bolck on Third
avenue. This, however, is not a branch
of the Port Essington business, as Mr.
Morrow has retired and Mr. Frizzell
is carrying on the present enterprise
entirely by himself.
Mr. Frizzell will keep a full stock
of all kinds of meats, evgetables, fruits,
etc. Orders will be delivered to al
parts of the city.
The new business will In* opened on
Saturday and we are sure that it will
be a welcome addition to our constantly
growing enterprises. 3 g

THE LIBERATOR
Address   on    Abraham    Lincoln    in
Presbyterian  Club
The life of Abraham Lincoln was the
subject of a short address delivered by
Mr. K. ('. Bean to the members of the
Presbyterian Club last night. In the
limited time at his disposal Mr. Bean
drew an excellent pen portrait of the
great liberator. He condensed the
wonderful wealth of interesting detail
nnd emphasized the salient points in
Lincoln's armoury, his high moral
courage, his aptitude for learning, and
his undeviitting conscientiousness.
The address was greatly appreciated
bu the audience. During the evening
songs and recitations were submitted
by members of the club.
For the small district of Section One
still requiring sewers the city engineer's
estimate of $33,000 for the work is
considered by the council to indicate
that the work proposed is too expensive,
and the city engineer is asked to suggest
a less costly plan involving a smaller
system of sewers.
While the citizens are known to
favor the idea that any work done
should be permanent, it was pointey
out by Alderman Lynch that to carrP
out this work permanently would not
be easy, and that a less ambitious plan
would meet the case meanwhile.
It was pointed out by Alderman
Lynch that a money by-law must go
through before anything serious in the
sewer scheme can be attempted, and the
task will be one for the next council.
duty of the next board to meet the
demands of the occasion for next year.
Mr. Palmer expressed the view that the
subscription was going to be a losing
game, and they had contingencies arising
in the next two years that were sure to
absorb the money proposed to be
borrowed. He proposed getting the
money as soon as possible. On the
suggestion of Mr. Manson it was decided to leave the matter in abeyance
till after the collector had reported.
After that there was no occasion for
them to limit the proposal to $5000.
It was only a matter of arrangement
with the bank.
The annual meeting was decided to
be held on the 31st of January. Mr.
Stewart and Mr. Kirkpatrick (the president) were appointed a committee
to confer with the Ladies' Auxiliary
with a view to holding a reception or
a formal opening in connection therewith.
The secretary was asked to write
to the Choral Society of Prince Rupert
for their report in connection with the
concert given recently oh behalf of the
hospital.
It was decided to advertise for new
coal tenders, the others being too high.
