There is said to have been a strike

bry   Inlet,   recently   purchaaed   and
liken   over   by   the   Granby   Smelter
ompany.   Two loads of machinery and

(ley were offered the old Granby rates
$3 per day  for muckers and $3.50
br   machine   men.     They   protested
rainst this and  demanded  the local
thedule of pay, which is a flat rate of
per day.   The manager said he had
t authority to pay them more than the
Granby rate so most of the men walked
out.
Only Four Stay In
Passengers on the Camosun yesterday
brought the news that only four men
were left at the mine. Fourteen of them
came to this city, some of whom remain
here and the others have returned to
Phoenix, B. C.
May Soon Be Over
It is believed the trouble at the mine
will be of short duration and that the
local manager at the mines will be
ordered by the company to concede the
load rate to the workmen.

BRITISH PARLIAMENT DISSOLVED TODAY
King George Expresses Regrets That Conferences Between Lords
and Commons Proved UnavaiIing---Lloyd-George the
Storm Center of General Election---"Tay Pay"
Gleefully Predicts  Home  Rule.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Nov. 28.���The king formally
dissolved both houses of parliament
today and elections are now on in
earnest. In the address from the throne
the king said that he regretted the many
conferences on the veto privileges of
the house of lords had been unavailing.
He referred in touching terms to the
death of thc late king and said he hoped
to follow in the former monarch's wise
footsteps.
It is believed there has been a serious
split between the king and Winston
Churchill.
Most of the members of the cabinet
were absent nt the time the dissloution
of parliament was declared.
Lloyd George is at present the storm
center of the new campaign. He addressed several meetings at Edinburgh
on Saturday and declared himself vehemently against the lords' referendum
as being opposed to modern ideas of
political liberty; at the same time he
denied that the policy of the Liberal
party was revolutionary. What the
party sought was a change that must
come in the natural order of things.
The people of thc country had not now
diacovered it for the first time but had
for many years felt that the veto power
of an unelected and therefore unresponsible body such as the house of
peers was a curtailment of the usefulness
of the members of the commons elected
by th. people and directly responsible

CONTRACTOR
HAS TROUBLE
MR. S. H. WATSON ATTACKED BY
ITALIAN WORKMEN
Mutinoua Over the Discharge of a
Countryman They Made Attack on
Him, Cutting Hia Head. Caae in
Police Court.
The sm*ooth running of S. H. Wat-
aon's Second avenue grading contract
has been marred by a farcas with a
gang of Italian laborers which took
place there Saturday, and in which the
contractor was injured. He appeared as
complainer today in the police court
in support of the charge of assault
laid against the laborers. The hearing
takes place at five p.m. L. W. Patmore
handlea the case for thc prosecution.
The trouble arose through the dismissal of an Italian for neglecting his
work. He returned and aowed dissension amongst his countrymen employed by Mr. Watson. The men got
mutinous demanding that their countryman should be re-instated.
S.  H.  Watson  refused.    An   Italian
made a threatening move at him swinging
up a dinner pail. The contractor
defended himself, and al once the whole
gang got about him using their fists and
anything that came handy. Mr. Watson's head was cut, and he was otherwise
roughly handled, but he got control
of the situation and as a result the men
must appear this evening in the police
court.
WAS FINED TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS
For Giving Liquor to an Indian Woman at Port Simpaon
William McDonald, the Indian charged
with having supplied liquor to an
Indian woman at Port Simpson pleaded
guilty before Magistrate McMullin this
morning and was fined $25 and costs.
He paid the fine.
Citlaens' League Quarters
The rooms formerly occupied by the
Prince Rupert Club, over P. Bum's
meat store have been secured by the
Cititens' League of Prince Rupert, and
will prove very convenient for the
purposes of the league.
to them. Popular sympathy was necessary for the passage of the necessary
legislation to make the change, and he
believed his party had this. He believed all British people saw the importance of such a change, but they
could not expect the peers to see it;
they could not expect them to see eye
to eye with the populace because their
lordships lived in an exclusive atmosphere of sunshine and splendor.
A strong article published this morning
by T. P. O'Connor states that the worst
the Tories can do in this election is to
reduce the Liberal majority by ten
votes. This will in his opinion still
leave an adequate majority to destroy
the veto power of the house of lords
and ensure home rule for Ireland.

Satisfied Hia Neck Waa Broken
At 2 p.m. today Coroner McMullin

Nekit-h, killed on the railway in the
handcar accident. The jury consisted
of George Leek, Ed. Clarke, William
Denholme, Neil McDonald, A. E. Evans
and F. Froude. As the principal witnesses are lying injured at the hispital,

Monday at 7: 30 p.m. when the evidence

body at Hart's morgue, and satifised
themselves beyond a doubt that the
man's neck had been broken.

BIG STRIKE OF ORE IS MADE
AT THE RED CUFF MINE
Was Made at Midnight Friday���-Said to be the Richest
in the Portland Canal District���Upraise is Under
Way and Ore Shipments Will Soon Start
A rich Strike of a solid body of copper
ore at Red Cliff has been reported. It
has caused some excitement in Stewart,
and since Friday at midnight when the
strike was made, the wires to Vancouver
have been kept hot. The strike had
been expected for several days, but is
reported to exceed all expectations.
Celebrations Are Held
Erskine Smith, commonly known as
"Coolgardic" Smith, the mining engineer of the Red Cliff, brought the news
down on thc Camosun. He was hurrying
to Vancouver with the good news.
The ore was struck in the tunnel
about midnight on Friday and there
was great rejoicing. "Coolgardie" ordered the drills to renew works and the
new strike was thoroughly tested by
other blasts and demonstrated that il
waa a solid ore body that had  been
struck. He at once told the machine
men to lay off for a shift and gave each
a present of $100.
Rich Vein of Sulphite Copper
The strike was made in the tunnel at
1330 feet. It is of sulphite copper and is
said to be richer than any yet struck
in the Portland Canal district, but this
remains to be seen. The men went to
work Saturday morning on the construction of an upraise for getting out
the ore, starting it about one hundred
feet form the face of the solid body of
ore discovered.
Arranging to Ship
The news of the strike is said to have
caused much excitement at Stewart
and gave rise to a general belief that the

This is a little section of the paper, which from day to day will be devoted
to subjects of special interest to women. Any and all of the ladies of Prince Rupert
are invited to contribute to its columns, and to take part in its discussions. Suggestions and criticisms are invited by the editor. The hope ia expressed that "The
Cosy Corner" will fill a social need.
Women's Sphere in Medicine
Speaking on this subject at the London
(Royal Free Hospital) School of Medicine
(or Women, Dr. E. W. Roughton said
that although the natural gifts of the
average woman were more suited for the
profession of nursing than for that of
medicine, there were many women whose
mental qualities fitted them in the highest degree for the practice of the healing
atr. There was no presumption that
women were incapable of becoming
efficient doctors. Doubtless in course
of time, when women had got over their
want of confidence in their own sex, the
number of women practitioners would
largely inwease.
He was strongly in favor of the separation of the sexes in medical work, so
that, as far as possible, persona should be
treated and nursed by persons of their
own sex. Dr. Garrett Anderson, who
presided, congratulated the school on the
fact that of the thirty-one ladies who had
entered this year thirty were aiming for
the London Univeraity degree, the very
highest degree it was possible for men or
women to obtain.
she has been married she has written
twice each week to her mother, never
missing a mail no matter where she is.
For the Housewife
Tough meat may be made tender by
laying it a few minutes in vinegar
water.
Suffragettea In China
Whatever rebuff the suffragette movement may receive in the Weat, it ia
not without hope in the Eaat. Dr.
Gilbert Reid, of the International Institute of China, speaking before the
Buffalo Twentieth Century Club, said:
"In the rapid changes that are now
taking place in China I would not be
surprised if within ten years we should
see some intelligent, patriotic woman
sitting in the imperial parliament and
discussing questions of empire with ease
and fluency, with no criticism of impropriety from anyone, just as the
whole administrative power of the empire has for so many years rested solely
in the hands of a woman. There may be
a Manchu woman on the throne, and a
Chinese woman in the parliament.
A Phonograph Battle
The phonograph is an inoffensive
and entertaining instrument in itself,
but it can be converted into a destroyer
of domestic peace as destructive as a
gatling gun in war. Two Philadelphia
families, whose neighborly relations were
not the most amiable, Bought to render
each other's lives miserable by a phonograph war. The rival instruments
were turned loose for a continuoua
stretch of 170 hours, playing the aame
tune consecutively, the members of the
families forming themselves into relays
to change recorda and wind up the
Bleep-de��sToyerB. The other residents
of the block, in self defence, stormed
and captured the musical batteries and
discord no longer prevails.
A Great Man'a Nurse
Mrs. Joseph Chamberlain remains the
devoted friend and nurse of the great
statesman who is her husband. He 1b
never happy if she is out of his sight
for a moment. She is beginning to
show signs of her long term of nursing, but she assures all her friends she
is "perfectly happy" and that her only
trial would be were anything to happen
to "Joe."
It is said that some day Mra. Chamberlain will enter an Anglican sisterhood;
she is very devout and is a conatant
visitor at a well-known convent near
Epsom. Most of her private income
she gives to charity, but in the most
unostentatious manner. The agents
who disburse it have strict instructions
never to reveal whence it comes.
Her friends have ceased to invite her
out now, so persistently does she decline all their invitations.    Ever sifjflfe

DANGEROUS   DESPERADO   SHOT
UP ROSSLAND HOTEL
By Clever Rute Chief Long Shot
Bandit in Groin and Ignominioua-
ly Hauled Him Off to Jail���Had
Plenty of Money.
Nelson, Nov. 25.���Equipped with
two 44-calibre automatic revolvers, and
150 rounds of ammunition, a stranger,
after shooting up the Crescent bar at
Rossland yesterday, and holding up
Chief of Police Long at the point of hia
gun, was shot in the groin by the policeman and taken to jail.
The story told by a Nelson man,
arriving on the Rossland train laat
night was to the effect that some time
yesterday morning a stranger entered
the bar of the Orescent hotel, and
after taking a few drinks commenced
to shoot in all directions. The shots
all went wild, and the stranger then
left the bar and walked down toward
the C. P. R. track.
He waa followed by Chief of Police
Long and a citizen, who came up with
him near the water tank on the track.
Covering each of his pursuers with a
gun, the stranger told them in forcible
terms to get out of hia way and leave
him alone. ���
Seeing that he waa up against a
bad man, Chief Long turned around,
and then making a quick movement,
drew his own revolver and shot the
man in the groin. The bandit fell to
the ground, waa arrested, and lodged
in jail. The sum of $500 was found
in hia possession.

MARTIN BURRILL'S CHEAP BLUFF
At some future date when some entertaining author writes a treatise on The
Art of Bluffing, he will muke an entry in the index like this:
"Bluff���cheap.   Historical example, see speech of Martin Burrill, M. P., in
"House of Commons, November 25th, 1910."
A better example of the cheap bluff will surely he hard to find than that
challenge of the member for Yale-Cariboo that Sir Wilfrid Laurier test the temper
of the electors of the Pacific Coast on the naval policy by sending Hon. William
Templeman to the Senate and promoting a contest in Comox-Atlin. It was cheap
to the limit of impecuniosity.
When Mr. Burrill threw out that challenge he well knew that it could never
be taken up; that Hon. William Templeman was of far too much service in the
Cabinet and the House for his retirement to the Senate to be considered.
There is an easier way than that to settle the issue. If Mr. Burrill is anxious
to test the feelings of the people of British Columbia on the navy question, let him
resign his own seat. Let him secure the services of Henri Bourassa and the other
anti-British agitators who figured in the contest at Drummond-Arthabasca. Let
them repeat the same speeches and the same arguments in Yale-Cariboo. Let
the issue be confined to the navy question. And let the voice of the people of
British Columbia be heard.
The test is in Mr. Burrill's hands. He can try it out���if he dare���in his own
constituency. But Mr. Burrill knows too well the feeling of the people of British
Columbia to take a chance.
As an example of the cheap bluff Mr. Martin BurriU'a challenge is a gem.

Last week a man of 2.1 years, with his wife of 22 years, left Montreal for Alberta. They had with them ten children, all their own, five paira of twins born
within aix years.
The proud father told a newspaper reporter that they were going West where
there was plenty of room.   They need it.
But what a chance Prince Rupert lost to see the city grow, when it neglected
to bonus this promising family and bring them hither.
GET WISE, DIOGENES!
Writing in the Vancouver Province about the rain in Vancouver during November, "Diogenes" after advising the Vancvuverites to make the beat of it, says:
"As there seems every probability that it will rain from now till the end of January,
we had better look to our waterproofs and make the beat of it."
Why not advise the good people of Vancouver to take a trip north and enjoy
the sunshine and the blue skies of Prince Rupert?  We have enough and to spare.
Get wise, Diogenes, get wise!

New Line Will Tap Naaa Valley
Country���Charter for Alberta Section Already Secured���Surveyors
Are Now at Work.
Donald D. Mann, first vice-president
of the Canadian northern, was in
Vancouver last week and confirmed the
report that the Canadian Northern
was applying for a charter for a railway
from Stewart at the head of Portland
Canal across Northern British Columbia
���north of the Grand Trunk Pacific���to
the eastern herders of the province,
there to connect with a line to Edmonton. The charter for the Alberta
section of the proposed trunk line has
already been secured from the Legislature of Alberta.
Preliminary Work Done
"Our engineer has already done
some preliminary work, demonstrating
that it is quite feasible to build a line
from the Portland Canal district into
the Naas river valley," said Mr. Mann.
"He has ascertained that fair grades
can be secured as the summit has an
altitude of only 1740 feet above sea
level. About three thousand feet of
tunnelling and certain snow-sheds would
have to be built at the summit of the
divide. The maximum grades for westbound traffic would be about one per
cent and eastbound a maximum grade
of two-tenths, and that for only a few
miles, can be secured.
Will Open Up Naaa Valley
The building of less than a hundred
miles of line from Stewart will tap the
Naas river valley which, according to
my information, contains vast areas
of land adapted for mixed farming and
for ranching as well as rich mineral
resources and anthracite coal.
"I   feel   convinced   that   no  serious
engineering difficulties exist as regards I
this portion of the route.   It may not
be generally known that a line from
Edmonton direct  to  Stewart will  not
be much longer than our route from i
Edmonton   to     Vancouver.    We   will
probably   do . some   exploratory   work j
next year in the region between  the
Naas   river   valley   and   the   western
boundary of Alberta."

Market Starts to Move
The news of the strike was wired to
j Vancouver on  Saturday but  probably
; failed to reach  there before the close
1 of   the   stock   exchange.     Saturday's
; quotations closed ut 90c, but S. Harrison
&Co., the local  mining brokers, have
j reason to believe that this morning the
stock will go up with a jump.   The news
i madei a little flutter among the stock
speculators here this morning, and the
firm mentioned took orders to buy up
1 to a limit of $1.40.    The firm expects
j the quotation lo reach $1.50 today and
believe there is  a  probability that  it
will shortly  reach  anywhere  from  $3
i to $4.
Price Goes  Up  on Exchange
Harrison & Company received a wire
| from Vancouver this afternoon that Red
| Cliff closed on the Exchange at $1.28.
The stock opened with a jump from 90c
to $1.00 and from that on it was the
leading feature of the market and there
was heavy buying.

IBAPTIST PASTOR ELOQUENT
Thc annual report of the public works
department of the federal government
refers particularly to the survey now
under way looking to the establishment
of a navigable channel via the North
Saskatchewan river from Edmonton
I to Winnipeg. It declares that with the
I development of the Saskatchewan Canada would stand unique among the
countries of the world in the matter
of water transportation. A thirty-foot
navigation (soon to be thirty-five) from
the sea to Montreal, a distance of nearly
1,000 miles; a fourteen-foot channel
from Montreal to Fort William, something over 1,200 miles; nine-foot navigation from Winnipeg to Cedar Lake,
and from there to the Rocky Mountains
four to five foot navigation, over a
distance of 1,600 miles, a total of approximately 3,300 miles of actual inland
waterway traversing the greater part
of the northern half of this continent, the
only break in .the chain being 400 miles
from Fort William to Winnipeg.

HIDDEN CREEK
DEVELOPMENT
MINING EXPERT EXPRESSES AN
OPINION
Mr. E. Jacobs Givea Favorable Statement Think. It Ia Early Yet to
Call It "One of Greatest Minea on
Pacific Coaat.
E. Jacobs, mining engineer ol Victoria, has an article in the Canadian
Mining Journal under the caption:
"Granby Company Enlarging Its Field
of Operations," which deals with the
recent purchase of the Hidden Creek
Properites on Observatory Inlet by the
smelter company. After quoting at
length the prospectus just issued by
the company and the statements made
by Jay P. Graves, its vice-president and
general manager, to the effect that a
matting plant will be erected as soon
as a sufficient tonnage is developed, Mr
Jacobs goes on to state:
"Last summer I waa given the following information relative to this property
by one who claimed to be well informed
concerning it: The developed ore zone
has been opened for a little more than
2,000 feet in length, and from 200 to
500 feet in width. Beside some 1,600
feet of open-cut work, about 1,000 feet
of tunnelling has been done. Thia
work has opened a large body of copper
sulphide ore, running from 4 to 8 per
cent, (with some as high as 12 per cent.)
in copper, and $1 to $3 per ton in gold
and silver. It is a very favorable ore
for smelting, carrying an excess of iron
over silica. Much of it is pure copper
and iron sulphide, high in both iron and
sulphur, so making it a deairable smelting
ore, less coke being required for ita
reduction than for other ores having
constituents less favorable from a metalliferous point of view.
"The ore has been cut for a width of
125 feet and down to a depth of between
400 and 500 feet, and it is known to be
good to below the 400-foot level. The
quantity of ore blocked out is more
than 300,000 tons, and the mine is
sufficiently developed to warrant the
erection of a 300-ton smelter.
"The foregoing information will serve
to give a general idea uf the property
the Granby Company haa taken under
bond. It ia probable Mr. Gravea la not
quite correctly quoted in the statement
attributed to him, in effect that the
Hidden Creek property ia 'one of the
greatest mines on the Pacific coast.' It
is likely that his comparison was intended to be restricted to the British
Columbia coast district. If not, then the
opinion may be expressed that it ia
premature to express any such opnion
in the present state of development
of the Hidden Creek mine. Nevertheless,
there seems some good reason to believe
there is in that mine a large tonnage of
copper ore, but of general average
grade somewhat lower than the stated
3 1-2 per cent, copper."
CAPTAIN OF INDUSTRY
Waa to Invest Thirty Millions but
Forgot Board Bill
Capitalist Davins, the gentleman who
was in Edmonton a few weeks ago with
trunks filled with blueprints of buildings
which he proposed to erect in Edmonton
and environs, at a total cost of in the
neighborhood of $25,000,000 or $30,-
000,000���a difference of a few millions
is immaterial���left the city laat week in a
hurry, leaving behind him an unpaid
board bill for $10 at the Crescent
rooming houae, and a number of greatly
chagrined real estate men, who had
entertained the aoi distant emissary of
the kings of American finance for a
period of several weeks upon the strength
of hia yarns as to untold millions at hia
command.
Mr. Davins also left a check for $10,-
000 in the hands of Mr. John R. Boyle
and Parlee, this being the price that he
had agreed to pay the holders of a railway
charter into the Peace River district, as
purchase price.
JOHNSON  NOT  FIT
Predicted He Will Never Again  Leave
Ring a Champion
Chicago, Nov. 25.���The next time
Jack Johnson steps into a prize ring a
new heavyweight champion will be
brought out, say cloae friends of Jeffries'
conqueror here today. They are not
astonished at reports from the East that
he is suffering from nervous prostration,
and say a break-down of the big black
haa been coming for some time.
"Too much auto scorching and too
much prosperity," is the way they put
it, and in their feara the mother of
Johnson shares, following the report of
the champion's collapse at Lowell, Mass
Piver'a, Roger & Gallet'a perfumes,

j CHIPS FROM THE ]
HUMORISTS
Cholly Softhead���Say, Mr. Killtime.
I���er���love your daughter and want to
marry her. Is there any insanity in
your family? Mr. Killtime���No, young
man, there's not, an', moreover, there
ain't goin' t' be!
"What do you suppose it is dat is
overcrowdin' de cities?" asked Meandering Mike. "I dunno," answered
Plodding Pete, "unless it's dis habit
farmers is gittin' into of advertisin' fur
harvest hands."
Mistress���Jane, I saw the milkman
kiss you this morning. In the future I
will take the milk in. Jane���'Twouldn't
be no use mum. He's promised never to
kiss anybody but me.
"I see you have subscribed to a drug
journal."
"I wanted something to read nights.
I judge they won't print any football
stories."
"Why don't the theatrical managers
want husband and wife in the same
company?" "They think the public
wouldn't care to see a man making love
to his wife." "Looks too much like
acting, eh?"
O'Shea���'Ti sthrange we never hear
any more about that fan mis Fillypino
Aggynaldo; I wonder what become iv
him? Mulchay���I'll bet ye they illicted
him vice-president iv th' Fillypines!
A multi-millionaire returned to his
native village and erected a marble
palace on a hill-top there. One day,
after the palace was completed, he
said to the postmaster and the crowd
of loiterers in the general store: "Boys,
my million-dollar house up on the hill
is simply full of Titians." The loiterers
exchanged looks of surprise and horror,
and the postmaster exclaimed: "Good
gracious, ain't there no way o' killin'
���em?"
SCHEME OF PUBLICITY
New   Westminster   Giving   Subject
Careful Consideration
New Westminster, Nov. 26.���That a
united effort should be put forth to
advertise New Westimnster to the
uttermost parts of the earth was the
feeling expressed at an enthusiastic
meeting of the Board of Trade last night
called to hear an address from Vice-
president A. E. White, who had just
returned from Portland filled with the
spirit of the publicity movement of that
city.
Several speakers took occasion to score
the business men of the city for their lack
o finterest in the Board of Trade and publicity work of the city, and the feeling
expressed that there should be more
general support both financially and
morally, to this work. The question
of the board having independent quarters
away from the city hall was also discussed. Mr. White thought that thc
board could not do its best work until
it had such quarters.

THE  SIN   SIX-REMOVED"
Rev.
F. W. Kerr's Sarmon on "Tho
Up to Data Sinner"
Rev. F. W. Kerr had a large audience
in the Empress Theatre last night,
when he delivered a striking sermon on
"The Up To Date Sinner." In trenchant
terms he directed the force of his argument against the sin of the well-to-do
wealth-neeker whose demand for more
dividends makes him indirectly but by
no means irresponsibly, the cause of a
hundred And one oppressions and vice-
producers.
This, he said, is the up to date sin
that has a strBngle-hold on the United
States today, and is reaching out over
Canada. "The sin six-removed" he
called it, and declared against it as the
cause of the debasement of bright
young manhood, and the degrader of
pure and tender girlhood.
Everything must go regardless of cost or value as we are
absolutely set on getting out by January 1st Fixtures

BANK SELECTED
AS RECEIVER
SQUABBLE   OVER   GRAHAM    ISLAND COAL LANDS
Canadian Development Company
Sued for Difference Between Four-
Fifty and Ten Dollars an Acre.���
Early Trial Is Promised.
Vancouver, Nov. 24.���The Royal
Bank will be the receiver and the court
the guardian of some $230,000 in the
recent sale of some 23,000 acres of
Graham Island coal lands, until the
court shall have decided a suit now
pending over both.
The five plaintiffs are Messrs. Russell Whitelaw, James and John S. Sou-
tar, George Grant and George Bowers.
The defendants are the Canadian Development Company Limited and Mr.
H. R. Bellamy, mining engineer.
The action is for an accounting of
the proceeds of the sale of these Graham
Island coal lands.
It is contended by the five plaintiffs
that Mr. Bellamy, acting as the agent
for the holders of title to the lands,
entered into an agreement to sell them
to the Canadian Development Company
for $4.50 an acre, on the understanding
as the plaintiffs further allege, that a
new company was to be formed to take
over the lands at an increased price;
that this company was formed under
the name of the Graham Island Col-
leries Limited, and that the lands passed
to the latter at $10 an acre.
The defendants now, the plaintiffs
declare, refuse to account for any Bum
in excess of $4.50 an acre, and this
action has followed.
Messrs. Bowser, Reid & Wallbridge
are acting for the Canadian Development Company Limited, and Mr. R. S.
Lennie for its co-defendant, Mr. Bellamy.
SAYS LIQUOR WAS DOPED
Victor Ambrose's Explanation.   Was
Bought in Stewart
Shivering and shuddering with cold
or "nerves" Victor Ambrose admitted
before Magistrate Carss this morning
that he had been drunk yesterday.
Almost as soon as he got off the gangplank of the Camosun he had been
taken in charge by the ever watchful
Constable Mansell.
Victor declared that he had had only
three drinks on the steamer, of liquor
purchased at Stewart. He couldn't
imagine how he had got drunk unless
the stuff were doped. Such a thing
had never happened to him before.
After mentioning some highly respected
citizens of Prince Rupert as likely to
vouch for him, and even advance the
needful for his fine, Victor withdrew the
poorer by a debt of $5 including costs,
due the police department of Prince
Rupert.
He remarked more than once upon the
cold, and the police court positively
rattled and shook with his shivering
stunt, and the force of his eloquence in
explaining matters
SNOW  FOLLOWS FAIRY SUNSET
Coating of "The Beautiful," Heralds
the Approach of Winter
Thick rime on the plankroads yesterday gave place today to Prince Rupert's
first snow for this winter. The coming
of the snow was rather a surprise to the
citizens who were out around the city
at sunset yesterday when- the sky was
beautifully clear.
Such a superb sunset as yesterday's
would surely be enough to convince the
most confirmed croaker that the city
of Prince Rupert must always rank as
one of the loveliest in the world. Never
surely out of the realm of romance, was
a city so superbly situated. Mountain,
sky, and sea, lit yesterday by the rays
of that wonderful sunset, seemed like
the scenery in a fairy tale. And Prince
Rupert in the heart of itl
