Mayor Pleads That Business Interests Would Prevent Him From
Serving City for a Second Term���Will Use His Influence on
Behalf of His  Colleague,  Aid. Frank Mobley���Wm.
Manson M.P.P. His Opponent in Warm Contest
]H.   H.   Salome    Chocolate.���F.   D.
Ii-eley, exclusive agent. 2t
By thc announcement made by Mayor
Stork this morning that his private
business interests made it impossible
for him to offer himself for re-election,
the first definite step in the municipal
elections was taken. This leaves the
field open to Mr. William Manson,
M. P. P., the unsuccessful candidate
at the last election, and Alderman!
Frank Mobley. The request to Alder-1
] man Mobley wits made by a number
I *>f his colleagues and citizens last night
.ifi it a private meeting, where Mayor
Stork announced hit. decision not to
en 1st the field for next year's contest.
The Mayor's Statement
Interviewed by an Optimist reporii'ri
this morning, as to his reasons for withdrawing   from   the   municipal   contest,
Mayor Stork said:   "My decision was
only reached after considerable thought.
The office of Mayor of Prince Ru|M>H
is an exacting one, and during the past
year  my  mayoral   duties  made  great ,
demands upon my time.    Fortunately
I was able to give all the time that my j
duties required, but in the forthcoming
year I contemplate enlarging my business to cope with the growing demands
of the city.
Would Be Awny Two Months
"I shall probably be obliged to go;
away for a business trip for two months,
and do not think it would lie fair to the:
city for me to present myself for office
knowing that I could not attend to the'
duties of thc office for more than ten
out  of  the  twelve  months.    Perhaps
later on when my business extensions
are completed, and I huve the necessary
time to devote to civic affairs I may
enter the arena again."
Spoke Well for Mobley
"Will you not take any part at all in
the  elections  then?"   the   Mayor  was
���ilnd.
"Only as an ordinary citizen," he
replied. "I understand that Alderman
Mobley has been asked to stand for
Mayor and is considering thc matter.
If he should decide to run, I will support
him with all my power. During his
year in the Council Alderman Mobley'
displayed great ability and gave the
city good service. If he should enter
the field I will support him. He would
make an excellent Mayor, in my opinion." A moment later a tap came un
i In door of the Mayor's office and
Alderman Mobley entered.
Alderman Mobley's Decision
"Well what is your decision, Mr.
Alderman?"   inquired the Mayor.
"If you are still firm in your refusal j
to enter the field, I will run," declared
Alderman Mobley.
"I am glad to hear that, and I wish
you every success," said Mayor Stork
as he shook the alderman's hand.
Will Make Statement Later
Asked for a stntcment for the public.
Alderman Mobley begged for time.  "My
best statement, I suppose," he said, "is!
the record of my service in the Council,
���Hd the public knows that.    Later on
1 will issue printed statements of my
position, and will address tbe electors
and discuss municipal problrms with
them."
Asked if he knew who his opponent
would be, Alderman Mobley said he
had received no definite announcement,
but the friends of .Mr. William Manson
were petitioning him to run ugain. and
it was rumored the member would
accept.
Mr. Manson Will Run
William Manson, M. P. P., interviewed by an Optimist reporter suid
he had no statement to make in regard
to his candidacy for the mayoralty. He
said: "I was presented with a largely-
signed petition last evening by representative citizens requesting me to
again become a candidate for mayor of
Prince Rupert.
"After considering the matter I decided this morning to accept the nomination. For the present I am merely-
announcing my candidature and later
on hope to have the opportunity of
discussing municipal questions us they
arise."

Wide waved the tartan through the
muzes of the smooth circling waits nnd

Highland blood no mutter how far
distant from the lund of the heuther,
thrilled in rs-sponse to the drone and

Those ume brave gluil airs that huve

There were fifty couples up for the
first dunce, and to the excellent music
of Ciruy's Orchestra the merry assembly
kept the dancing tn full awing: from the
promenade to "Atlld Lung SyTic." Refreshments by Messrs. t'orley & BUTgeH
were on hand close by in thc Royal
hotel dining rooms during the progress
of the dunce and were msist tustefully

���Swift of Chicago Makes Prophecy about Prince Rupert
George H. Collins, president of the

putting up a million dollar plant in
[rince Rupert, returned on the Prince
upert Wednesday from meeting the
lir-otors in Montreal, where satisfaction
expressed at the news that the
fr :u-e Rupert concern would be ready
|�� begin active operations next fall.
}h- Collins visited most of the large
"s of the East in the course of his
ourney and spoke most enthusiastically
Jf the outlook for Prince Rupert.
Interest in Prince Rupert
^ "You have no idea," he observed
[what a tremendous interest is taken in
Prince Rupert in all the large cities
�� Canada and the United States I
���Wted, It made no difference where I
whether at Toronto, Boston, New
"rk or Chicago, people sought me out
M would question me by the hour

Mr. Swift's Prophecy
"Particularly did I find those interested in thc fish business desirous of fuller
and more specific information. I may-
tell you that the eyes of fishing men all
over are turned in this direction, and
struck me was the amount of reliable
information they had already acquired.
This was brought to my notice in Chicago in an interview I had with Ed
Swift, the owner of the finest packing
house in Chicago and probably in the
world. I had applied to Mr. Swift for
permission to look over the most modern
appliance lately added to his cold storage
plant, and he not only courteously
granted the permission but sent for me.
We tallied for an hour and although the
conversation was very much of the nature
of a cross-examination thc exact knowledge which Mr. Swilt already had of
the situation here was surprising. He
concluded with the remark that Prince
Rupert was bound  to be one of the

The State and the Child
The case for state interference on be-
'��� half of the neglected children has re-
j cently been put forward in the following
, article from the Washington Herald.
"Even very slight intimacy with the
conditions with which the humane so-
j cities are concerned in caring for the
! neglected children is enough to  place
I these institutions in the very front rank
of social reform agencies.   Their great
work  is  almost  wholly supported  by
voluntary subscriptions, and has been
dependent upon the sympathetic support of tho public.   The extensive system which has been evolved by these
inadequate means during the life of the
movement   is   a   gratifying   index   of
national character and benevolence.
"But since it is evident that, great
though this work has been, the powers
of these bodies for anything like their
utmost good are limited by lack of
funds and the uncertainty of an inconstant revenue, it would appear that it
is clearly the office of the state, or
the nation to act fully up to its legal
functions and to stand toward the neglected and abandoned little children in
loco parentis, in deed, as well as in
fact.
"It was clearly shown, even in the
dawn of Grecian history, under the wise
code of Lycurgus of Sparta, what may
be done by the state in the way of
rearing and caring for the children. And
however much *one may deplore the
Spartan cunning which was developed
by that system and regarded as a national virtue, there were to be found in
the finished product of their state
methods many admirable and estimable
personal qualities of which the cultivation and possession would even today
bring credit to any people.
"Nor need one go so far afield, either
in time or distance, to find abundant
and overwhelming evidence that state
or national support and direction of a
movement that evokes both the finer
feelings and emotions of the best people
of every community, which supplies to
the saddened life of a little child some
slight compensation for the loss of the
greatest thing in the world���a mother's
love���and which restores and saves to
society a man or woman in place of a
criminal, is one of the greatest and
noblest offices that any state or nation
can possibly perform.
"The welfare of the children of a
community lies at the very root and
foundation of society. The neglect of
them carries with it too great a risk, for
the future, and whether the neglect
from which too large a proportion of
the child population of this country ia
always suffering is caused by'loss of
parents, the inability of parents, or the
remissness of parents matters not in the
clear and plain outlining of the nation's
duty to the flotsam and jetsam of a very
precious possession.

must have appealed to so great a lover
of beauty in animate and inanimate
nature as Sir Walter Scott, and it must
have been far indeed from his thoughts
to engender superstition by giving a
bad name to a marvelous sample of
creative energy. Yet it is to him far
more than to any one else that the
opal���the "precious or noble opal" as
its enthusiastic admirers of former
times loved to call it, in contradistinction to other varieties���is indebted for
its deposition from its former rank
among jewels. The exigencies of fiction
are great, and much license of imagination could safely be conceded to Scott;
but, for all that, an inordinate importance was attached by the early
readers of his "Anne of Gerstein" to
his casual impeachment of the opal,
and succeeding generations have inherited the distrust, that was thus aroused.

The Unlucky Opal
It was reserved for these latter days
to set foot on and widely propagate
a superstition against the opal that
might have been pardoned in ancient
or mediaeval times, but does discredit
to the intelligence of the twentieth
century. The theory was started that
for some occult reason the opal was
unlucky, or that it brought ill luck to
its possessor. To a slight extent, perhaps, this theory may have had something to do with the delicate composition of the stone; but this would not
have seriously militated against the
appreciation of its intrinsic beauty had
it not been for the influence exerted by
the "Wizard of the North."   The gem
Two Useful Recipes
Kidney Saute���Either veal or beef
kidneys may be used, the former being
of course the more delicate. With a
sharp knife chip off the outer portion
of each lobe of the kidneys, rejecting
the dark, purplish core. Have ready in
a hot pan a spoonful or more of butter
mixed with a dash of salt, a sprinkle
each of kidney and dry mustard. Turn
the kidneys constantly in this until
they are well colored, then add a drop
of tobasco and two tableapoonfuls of
tomato catsup. Servo at once, garnishing
with toast points.
Apple Pot Pie with Maple Syrup
Sauce���Half fill a deep dish with aour
apples which have been quartered,
pared and cored. Pour over them a
little boiling water and place in a hot
oven until tender. Make a crust aa
for baking powder biscuit*, roll out
an inch thick; lay it over the apples
and return it to the oven for about forty
minutes, or until the crust is done. For
the sauce, cook together two table-
spoonfuls of butter and one teaspoonful
of flour, add half of a cupful of maple
syrup and a tiny pinch of mace and cook
until clear and smooth.

THE VOICE OF THE DEMAGOGUE
The best justification which this paper has yet received for the space it has
devoted in its editorial columns to discussing the issues involved in the Grand
Trunk Pacific assessment, and the best encouragement it has received to continue
thc work, is set out in a leading article in this week's "Journal."
Not that the "Journal" endorses our attitude. On the contrary it declares
snir action in agitating the question to be "little short of criminal." It is the ground
of the "Journal's" criticism that is signilicant.
The attitude of our other contemporary matters little. It is a sort of blind
Samson, hurling its* If in unseeing rage against anything it can grope in the darkness. But the "Journal" makes a pretence of reasoning. Indeed, could it but
keep away from the vice of reading petty politics into everything, its opinions
would sometimes have value.
hi the present case its attempt to make the members of the City Council
and the "Optimist" mutually responsible for each other's opinions, is a distortion
of facts, which gives some of the aldermen credit that does not belong to them.
Not all of the Council have the same clear view of things we possess.
At present the "Journal's" criticism has value only so far as it exhibits the
danger of the demagogue who finds it easier to talk cheap platitude, than use his
thinking apparatus.
How wise, und how safe at a superficial reading appears the following sentiment:
"To attempt to stir up a feeling that will prevent the chances of any
settlement amicable to the company and the citizens of Prince Rupert is little
short of criminal."
And yet upon analysis and comparison with the facts, how cheap a piece of
piffle.
As though the one criminal act at this juncture were not to sit meekly by,
like the "Journal," blinking at the sun, and calling out for the city to make some
kind of settlement to suit the company.
As though the greatest menace today is not the journalistic demagogue who
attempts to conceal his inability and inefficiency behind an air of philosophic
wisdom.
If the "Journul" is really anxious to help in the settlement of the problem,
why does it not devote itself to dealing constructively with some of the many issues
in vol veii: it would be more germane and helpful than any amount of cheap and
dishonest moralizings.   Is it inability, or disinclination?
Or if it prefers, will it suggest some possible scheme of settlement "amicable
to the company and thc citizens of Prince Rupert." Once again, is it inability
or disinclination?
In the absence of proof to the contrary, the public will be justified in concluding that our contemporary suffers from both.

THE  "OPTIMIST" AND THE COUNCIL
There is another matter raised by the "Journal" loo: its assumption that the
City Council inspires the opinions of the "Optimist."
There is nothing to be offended at in the statement. Even if it were true it
would be no offence. Any group of persons have a perfect right to purchase a
newspaper in order to propagate their views. Nearly all of the most influential
papers in the world are so owned, notably the Lsondon "Daily News," the most
honored and incorruptible newspaper in the annals of journalism. Even the "Journal" is credited with aspirations to become the organ of the Conservative party
in Prince Rupert,���a by no means unworthy ambition.
Our only reason for denying the "Journal's" suggestion is because it is not
true. Were it true we would just as freely admit it. There would be no apology
needed or offered.   Our present disavowal is merely in the interests of truth.
As a matter of fact no member of the Council or group of members, dictates
the policy of the "Optimist." No member ol the City Council is on its Board
of Directors. Neither do those members of thc Council who are investors in the
Prince Rupert Publishing Co. hold a controlling interest in the paper. They do
not hold one balf, nor one third nor one quarter of its stock. Thc suggestion that
the "Optimist" is in any way tied to the opinions of the Council is "an inexactitude,"
which no honest person conversant with the facts would repeat.
Because the matter was a purely domestic one, and because it involved no
stigma, vse had refrained from so explicit a denial.
We tender it now to the "Journal" with the comment that hard things are
said about the man who makes the same mistake twice.

ITS POPULARITY SHOWN IN ANNUAL REPORT
Thirty Labor Disputes Were Dealt
With Last Year Under Its Provisions. Amendments Made to Act
Last Session.
Ottawa, Nov. 27.���The administration
of the Industrial Disputes' Investigation
Act is referred to at length in the annual
report of tha Labor Department, just
issued. The number of disputes dealt
with during the year under its provision
was thirty, and the total references
since its enactment, eighty-two.
"With this added experience of the
act," the deputy minister observes
"there is no reason to depart from
the conviction expressed in former
years regarding the effectiveness of
the measure as a factor in the adjustment of undustrial disputes, while
on the other hand, there is abundant
exidence that the principles on which
the Act is based are obtaining continually a wider recognition both in
Canada and elsewhere." The report
goes on to say that bills embodying
the principles of the Act have been
recently introduced in the legislatures
of Massachusetts and Wisconsin, while
several other states have been securing
information about it with the same end
in view.
The amendments made to the Act
last session had for their object: (1)
to relieve employees under certain circumstances from thc necessity of stating
on oath that the necessary authority
to declare a strike had been obtained;
(2) to place the onus of invoking the Act
on the party proposing a change in
wages or hours, where any such proposed change results in a dispute;   and
(3) to increase slightly the remuneration
paid to members of the board other than
the chairman.
The thirty disputes dealt with under
the Act were distributed among the
various industries as follows: coal
mining 9, metal mining 2, railways 12,
street railways 1, freight handlers 2,
longshoremen 1, teamsters 1, civic
employees 1, and industries other than
public utilities 1.
It is estimated that the total number
of employees affected in the disputes
was 30,350. During the year 1909,
1279 fatal, and 2718 seriouB accidents
occurred throughout Canada. This is an
increase of seven in fatal and 441 in
non-fatal accidents.
The total number of fair wage schedules
prepared since the Act came into force
is 1750. The report reviews the sepcial
report published some time ago on
investigation into the increased cost of
living. The scope of the Combines'
Investigation Act is also explained.

TRUSTED HIS MATES
They Failed Him.   No Cash to Meat
His Cheque
It is a serious offence to write a
cheque against which you have no
funds with which to meet it in the bank.
Magistrate Carss impresses this firmly
upon any offenders who come before him,
and the very lightest sentence he has
yet imposed on anyone guilty of this
offence was the four months' term given
yesterday to a man from the north. ThU
man's respectable appearance seemed to
support his story that he has trusted
his mates up there to have deposited
an amount to his credit long before he
wrote the cheque, but Magistrate Carss
had no alternative but to sentence him.

THE FIGHT AGAINST THE BAR
To the Electors
ladies and Gentlemen:
In response to a largely signed requisition received yester.
iv asking me to allow my name to be placed in nomination for
office of Mayor of the City of Prince Rupert for the year 1911,
hereby accede to the request and beg to announce myself a can-
Idate.
I will take occasion later on to present my views upon Muni-
pal issues to the electors, and in the meantime I would respect-
ly solicit your support upon the basis of an efficient and progres-
.e administration of the affairs of the City.
Yours respectfully
[ince Rupert, B.C.
December 1st, 1910
William Manson
o the Electors
-ad.es and Gentlemen:
At the completion of my term of office as Alderman, I have
eon approached by a number of my colleagues and citizens with
he request that I permit myself to be [entered in nomination for
he office of Mayor for the ensuing year.
After consideration, I have consented to that request, and
Jerewith announce my candidacy.
At public meetings to be held later on to discuss municipal
ksues I will present a programme of work, as the basis of my can-
|iilature.
Yours respectfully
He was. a brave reasoner who urged
the people not to let Prince Rupert take
its place with Chilliwack on Local
Option, but with Vancouver and Victoria. One would think that Chilliwack
and Prince Rupert were the pioneers
in the lonely region of Local Option.
Why not take its place with Bellingham
and Everett and Kansas City and a
thousand other large cities? Why not
take its place with Regina, Moosejaw,
Saskatoon, Prince Albert���all ol which
are taking a Local Option vote sooner
than Prince Rupert?
Today, the men who are grappling
with social and Industrial evils are the
working men. The tremendous impetus
of the temperance cause today is due
to a wide-spread movement among the
middle classes. There is a class who will
get liquor even if we have no open bars.
But the man who will be helped is the
man who acknowledges that he is not
strong enough to resist the temptation
of the open bur. John Burns, British
labor leader, has taken a strong attitude in this regard. He says: "My
participation in many of the greatest
labor movements of the present generation has enabled me to witness how
drinking dissipates the social force,
industrial energy and political strength
of the people. Give up drink or give up
hope of holding your place in the industrial world."
ECONOMICS AND THE BAR
(Tho fssllnwing Is pulilirstici! Isv the Press Committee of thc opponents of the Scott Act. ansl Is

The Candy Stores
In reference to the advice of the writer
of "Economics and the Bar," after
talking to the proprietor of a certain
candy store in the city, to find out his
position on the matter, and what he had
to say on the Scott Act, when asked if
he was in favor of Local Option, replied:
"Yes, I am going to vote for it." Asked
if he did not think it would resull in
there being a lot of Blind Pigs, he replied: "Yes, I intend to start one
myself."   This is a fact.

SUICIDE IN PRISON
Buffalo   Bill   Moore   Snatches   Rifle
From Warden and Shoots Himself
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, Nov. 30.���Buffalo Bill Moore
committed suicide yesterday at the
Athalmar prison. He was a well known
character in the province and was in
durance vile this time for abducting a
fourteen-year-old girl. While chatting
with one of the prison guard he suddenly
snatched the rifle of the guard and blew
his brains out.
Where the Money Went
There is now at work on one of the
construction trains on the line of the
new Grand Trunk Pacific railway near
Edmonton a man who is some ten years
out from the Old Country. He has been
railroading for eight years und in all
thut time he has earned not less than
$100 a month, sometimes more. He
is unmarried and has only himself to
provide for. It would be ex|>ected that
out of earnings like those, totalling more
than $10,000 in the eight years, he would
now have a substantial savings account;
but he has not. At the time he himself
gave this information, just a few months
ago. he wus penniless and was anxiously
waiting for the next pay-car. He had
nothing left out of $10,000 and thc
reason was that he hud wasted his
substance in riotous living. He had
spent what he hud to on clothing und
board; and the rest he hud given to
bar-keepers here and there over the
country in exchange for liquor. In other
words he had drunk up all his savings,
and for every dollar that he should
receive in future a hungry bur keeper
has an outstretched hand. Now what
does the manhood of Prince Rupert
think of an inslutitidn that robs a
mun, persistently and absolutely, like
that? Is it not an enemy to every
interest in which provident industry,
thrift and decent economy arc concerned? Can there be any defence for
il? It is not enough to say lhat a man
is a fool to thus spend his life working
for and supporting the bar-keepers: the
State, which means you und me, will
have to act as guardian for just such
fools in order, if for nothing else, to
husband thc carning-powcrs of our
national resources.
Results of Prohibition in Kanaaa
In reply to thc question what effect
prohibition had had on Kansas, Governor
Stubbs lately replied that "Kansas is now
and for a number of years has been the
most prosperous state in thc Union; that
her banks, barns and bins are full to
overflowing; that in some of her counties
no criminul prosecutions for any crime
have been hud fro more than ten yeurs;
that 50 per cent of her jails arc empty;
that 75 per cent of her poorhouses are
empty; and in many counties have been
sold and disposed of as no longer needful; that almost one-third of her entire
population is enrolled in public schools
and private colleges; that Kansas is a
land of plenty and that nowhere on the
globe exists a more sober, happy, and
prosperous people."
By  Newly  Formed  Epworth  League
Branch Last Night
Rev. Charles Sing is energetically
interested in the newly formed Citizenship Department of the Epworth League
just starting in thc First Methodist
church in I'rince Rupert. At the meeting
of the members and those interested
in the church last night, which was
presided over by H. C. Breckenridge,
Mr Sing was present and contributed
thoughtfully to the interesting discussion on Christian Citizenship opened
by Brother Shaw. The discussion was
continued in a merely conversation^
manner amongst the young men who
attended, and the need for a live Christ-
ian spirit in the practical matters of
every day citizenship was well brought
out in their discourse. In view of thc
prospects of Prince Rupert as a rising
city of the world rather than a mere
coast town, there is in this Citizenship
Department of the Epworth League
Branch here, something to interest all
young men interested in Prince Rupert.
EARL CREY'S SCOUTS
Activity Directed Towards Securing
Drill Hall and Recruiting
Enthusiasm among the vigorous-spit-
Ited young men of Prince Rupert is
I being awakened towards the swelling
of the ranks of Earl Grey's Scouts.
Active measures will be taken to secure
a drill hall as soon as possible, and
1 in this the support of the Department is
confidently expected.
Meantime the drills in the Presbyterian church will be discontinued for
the fall season, the building being un-
I suitable to accommodate a large body
i of men drilling; but drill will be ri-
: sumed early in spring in preparation
i for the inspection.
This decision was come to at a meeting
! of officers and non-commissioned officers
' held last night at the residence of Lieu-
! tenant A. W. Agncw.   All members of
the corps are notified to turn in  all
clothing,   arms   and     equipment   im-
I mediately  lo  the  commanding  officer
us thc inspection of these will tuke place
I on December 10th.

The Ladies' Aid of the Baptist church
will hold an apron and cake sale in the
church hall on December 13th at 9 p.m.
In the evening they will give an entertainment consisting of music and
tableaux showing the sweethearts of
nn engaged couple as they make their
confessions to one another.
Twenty well known young people will
take part.   Admission fee 25 cents.

Every Cameron is naturally interested in the recent birth of a son and
heir of the house of Lochiel, the twenty-
fifth hereditary chief of the great Scotch
clan of Cameron, which has played so
great a role, writes the Marquise de
Fontenoy. Lochiel came into the chieftainship, and to the extensive estates
of the family, on the death of his father
in 1905, and married Lady Hermonie
Graham, daughter of the Duke and
Duchess of Montrose, in the following
year. His mother is a sister of the Duke
of Buccleuch, and he served in the
Grenadier Guards throughout the South
African war.
Among his ancestors was that Ewen
Cameron of Lochiel, the hero of the battle
of Killiecrankie in 1689, who is said to
have killed the last of the wolves that
wandered at large in the British Isles,
and who formes the subject of such
eloquent praise in Macaulay's History
of England, where he is decsribed as
the "Ulysses of the Highlands." Hia
grandson was that "gentle Lochiel"
who was so devoted an adherent of
Prince Charles Stuart, the Young Pretender, about whom he declared: "Come
weal, come woe, I follow thee."
He fell in the battle of Culloden, and
his steel Highland pistols, marked
with his initials, figure in the Museum
of Antiquities at Edinburgh. The
present chieftain is the great-great-great-
grandson.
Highland chieftains, such as Lochiel,
constitute to a far greater extent the
true aristocracy of Scotland than ita
peers, and are regarded as such, both
at home and abroad. For Lochiel���
these great chieftains are invariably
known and addressed by their territorial title���lives among his people
that sort of feudal existence which is
seen at its very best nowhere but in
Scotland, where the chieftain regards
himself as responsible for the moral
and material welfare of every member
of his clan, all of whom, like their ancestors for hundreds of years past,
consider themselves as his retainers,
and as bound to him not merely by
ties of loyalty, but by ties of blood,
bearing as they do his name.
Those who wish fo: ;-. description of
the state which is maintained at Ach-
nacarry Castle, the principal home of
Lochiel, I would refer to the late Queen
Victoria's journal of her Life in the
Highlands, in which she describes a
visit which she paid to Lochiel's father
there in 1873, and of the profound
impression it made upon her.

While engaged in dumping excavated
material on Messrs. Mclnnes & Kelly's
grading contract yesterday, a foreign
laborer met with an accident by which
his collar bone was fractured. He is
being attended by Dr. Eggert in his
own cabin, and is doing well.
He was in charge ol two cars which
were being dumped, and remained on
the acr a little too long, falling with the
rocks and earth into the dump. It was
at first thought that he was uninjured
as he got up and walked easily, but aa
soon as he complained of the pain in his
shoulder the hurt was carefully attended
to. The injury is not sufficiently serious
to receive hospital treatment.

"How did that man come to be regarded as an authority on the tariff?
He never impressed me as much of a
student." "No," answered thc political
boss. "He didn't spend his time reading
books or theorizing. He found out
what hia constituents wanted, and got
it."
The lady was very much excited
when she entered the grocer's shop;
she placed a small tin can on the counter
with a bang.
"This," she said, witheringly, "is the
paint you sold me for use on stoves
You said it would dry in five minutes,
and make my home a palace. I've
had it on my stove for a week, and it
isn't dry yet. The worst of it is it's
so sticky. I've done nothing but wash
my hands every time I've touched it."
"I beg your pardon, madam," said thc
grocer, "but you bought a tin of treacle
and a tin of paint at the same time, and
this is the treacle."
"Treacle!" exclaimed the lady, in an
astonished voice. "Treacle! Well, I
suppose that explains why the children
have been ill all the week."
Colonel Kobert Ingersoll once called
upon Bishop Phillips Brooks, and was
told by the maid at the door that tha
bishop was very much occupied and
wished to be denied to all callers. Nevertheless, Colonel Ingersoll begged her to
present his card, and in a few moments
Bishop Brooks made his appearance,
smilingly extending his hand. Before
leaving, Colonel Ingersoll asked the
bishop how it happened that he consented to see him, when refusing to see
others. Bishop Brooks smiled and said,
"Well, you see, colonel, I expect to spend
an eternity with all my other friends."

greatest, if not the greatest fishing
ports in the world when keels and rails
meet.
The Advertising Telia
"It was the same at other places, the
fishing interest being fully alive to the
situation, and the enormous possibilities
in the fishing industry for exploitation
and expansion as soon an the railway
is completed. They seemed to be well
posted, too, on the line of the railway;
better posted than I am myself. But
no wonder, for the Grand Trunk Pacific
is doing a tremendous lot of advertising.
At K nsas City I saw bales upon bales
of thj company's folders to be distributed in Kansas, Missuori and south
of there.
Mr.   Swift   Haa   Expert   Knowledge
"Probably Sir George Doughty's statements in regard to the possibilities of our
fishing industry started this interest?"
"It may have enlivened it a little but
it certainly did not start it. Sir George
is a great fisherman in England, and is
looked upon as an authority there; but
he does not begin to know half what
Mr. Swift knows of the fishing on this
coast.
Other Resources Attract Notice
"It is not only the fishing, however,
but the other resources of this country
the moneyed people are keen on, such as
coal, mineral and farming lands. British
Columbia stands better today among
investors and people looking for investments than she ever has, antl I
look for a tremendous movement in
this direction to set in early next spring
both of investors and tourists. I have
been going east every year for a long
time but I never heard this province
and Prince Kupert talked about so much.
People hunted me up in Toronto and
Montreal just to have a chat with me
about this place and northern British
Columbia and you may rely upon a
great influx of people of all kinds as soon
as the winter is over."

An excellent program of dances was
arranged, Gray's Orchestra as usual
adding greatly to the pleasure of the

McLaren was heartily appreciated.
This is the second dance held by the St.
Andrew's Society in Prince Rupert, and
