(Special to the Optimist)
London, Nov. 17.���Yesterday afternoon the government checkmated Lord
Landsdowne's move for a bill to be at
once presented to the house of lords
on the veto question, by stating its
willingness to bring a veto bill down for
discussion but with the proviso that the
government was not prepared to accept
any amendments to such bill.
Upon receipt of this notification
Lord Landsdowne declared emphatically
that there must be reform in the upper
house. He held that the lords should
be   reinforced   from   the   outside   by

Montreal, Nov. 17.���Scores of prospectors are dead and many are dying
on the trails to the South  Porcupine
gold fields, as the result of exposure and
starvation, according to the statement
of an expert who has just arrived here
from that country.   Appeals were made j
for aid but the answer to those failed j
to  arrive.    It  is  likely  that  a  relief
expedition will be sent out, in the hope!
that many lives muy thereby be saved.

Spain's Relations with Vatican Liable
to Be Further Complicated
(Special to the Optimist)
Madrid, Nov. 17.���The relations between the Spanish government and thc
Vatican are likely to be further complicated by a new project on the part of
the former. This is found in the hill
for obligatory military service now under
discussion in the senate. It does not
exempt either the secular or the monastic clergy, and there is a strong inclination not to modify the bill in this
regard.
Should He Refuse to Create Additional Liberal Peer* There May

as Well as House of Lords.
(Special to the Optimist)
London,    Nov.    16.���A    tremendous
political  crisis  is  hanging  over  Great
I Britain today.   A monarchinl revolution
| as well as that against the house of lordr,
| would seem to be pending.   It is al the
I pleasure of the king, however, to put
an end to all this for the lime being.
But should he refuse to grant additional
Liberal  peers so that the government
could rely upon the passage of the supply
bills, this action might precipitate the
gravest kind of hapiwnings.    The motion of the leader of the house of lord*
that the government should  immediately
bring down a bill on the subject  of the
veto  power of the  house   of lords,  is
occasioning some real excitement.
King George arrived from Sandring-
ham this morning and is again in conference with Premier Asquith.
The "New Thought" has taken hold
of the Presbyterian Church Club in
Prince Rupert and lively discussions
have been engaged in on the subject of

A Square Deal]
School Teacher* and Mtrriage
The old view that mari ire dis-
rjUaliflei a lady from the work of teaching
school, has been getting a jolt from so
staid and conservative a journal as the
London Times. Writing in the woman's
supplement, a writer points out the
strange paradox that "the one indispensable qualification for mothering the
nation's children is not to be a mother.
In all other callings and professions,
first hand knowledge and experience are
considered necessary. Yet in the most
difficult and complex one of training
the future mothers of the race, these
very qualifications are not merely not
a recommendation, but an insuperable
bar.
"The first rock of offence is the
existence of the husband, and the fear
ol his influence upon the woman, and,
therefore, indirectly upon the institution; it seems to be entirely forgotten
that most men in responsible positions
have wives, but one never hears the
converse point raised as an objection
in appointing a headmaster.
"The effect upon our girls of living
in an artificial atmosphere, from the
time they are seven until, in many
cases, they are seventeen, cannot but
atrophy some of the most important
of their aptitudes and potentalities. If
the true Celestials tie up their women's
feet from babyhood, we would-be Celestials tie up the finer sides ol their most
potent instincts for national and social
good.
"The whole schools staff is, in many
cases, composed of women who have
themselves been deprived of all mothering since they were girls, and who have
no traditions to pass on, even at secondhand. They have lived, from childhood,
an artificial, unnatural life, induced by
the struggle for academic success. How
should they ��� understand the problems?
Yet these women are preparing the
future mothers of the race. Moreover,
such a segregation of spinsters is not
good for the spinsters themselves.
"The taste for home life is the one
taste, not only neglected, but discouraged by our present type of education. And this indictment holds
good from the lowest to the highest;
from the washerwoman's daughter, with
her smattering of algebra and her
disdain lor scrubbing brushes, who is
told that she has no 'business' to stay
at home and mind the baby, to the
wealthy woman's daughter, who is led
to believe that all life is embodied in
inanimate books."
the station slowly. Then a woman also
appeared on the platform of the observation car.
This two women who had caused all
the commotion rushed to the car. One
of them handed up the mysterious
parcel to the woman on the train. The
passenger hastily unwrapped it, revealing a box of candy. Then she
leaned down and kissed both the other
women goodby.

In the Woman'* World
Among the old laws against kissing
those of Iceland appear to have been
the most severe. Banishment was the
penalty laid down for kissing another
man's wife, either with or without her
consent.
Mrs. Rose D. Howe, who is a physician in Chicago, says that the reason
that Sarah Bernhardt, Mrs. Patrick
Campbell, and many others do not
grow old is that they continue to exercise their minds. As soon as mental
activity ceases, she says, the deterioration
of the body begins.
The Korean woman who speaks or
even nods on her wedding day immediately becomes an object of ridicule and
loses caste. Neither threat nor prayer
must move her, for the whole household
is on the alert to catch a single muttered
syllable. Her silence must last for a
week.

Some Household Hints
A simple syrup that is goad to serve
on hot waffles is made by boiling water
and sugar together and adding cinnamon
to taste.
Fat which is to he kept should be
cut up small and boiled in a saucepan
with a little water, and never put into
the oven to melt.
If buttonholes of starched collars and
cuffs are moistened on the inside before
buttoning they will button easily, and
will be much less likely to tear.
To remove rust from steel, make a
paste of fine emery powder and kerosene;
rub on, let stand a little while; then
polish vigorously with a rag dipped in
water.

Some of the wicked men who earn a
living by writing jokes in the comic
papers, got a rich haul the other day
when two Minneapolis women stopped
the Chicago express and made it back
up.
Just as the train began to move the
two women, one of them bearing a small
parcel, dashed madly toward the gates.
"Is that the Chicago train?" they
cried.
"It is," replied thc gentleman.
"Stop it! Stop it!" begged the women.
"It must be stopped!"
A big crowd of university students
was at the station waiting for the football team to get in. Gallantly the young
men began to shout:
"Stop the train! Stop the train! Stop

Thc conductor came out on the observation car platform. Thc station
was in an uproar and the two women
were running desperately toward thc
train. The conductor hesitated, grabbed
thc bell rope and yanked it. The train

RAILWAYS FOR
THE FAR NORTH
"LAST   WEST"   GIVING   WAY  TO
"FIRST NORTH"
Grading Completed on Branch Line
Through Peace River Valley���
Grand Trunk Pacific to Run Branches North of Edmonton.
Montreal, Nov. 14.���The "Last West"
having already been opened up to
civilization, the railways are now turning
their attention to the "First North."
and the coming year will witness an
exciting rivalry between the three great
railway systems of Canada for the command of the traffic into the great Peace
river country.
The Canadian Northern Railway,
which is the pioneer in central Alberta
and Saskatchewan, and is already in
operation north of the Grand Trunk
Pacific in both provinces, seems likely
to be the railway which will be the
first to profit by the immense agricultural and mineral resources of the
Peace river valley. For a long time
past it has not only had surveys being
carried out in that region, but has
actually had the first portion of the
line due north from Edmonton towards
the Peace river under construction.
A telegram was received at the Montreal offices today announcing that the
grading of this branch had been completed to within twenty miles of Athabasca Landing about 100 miles north
of Edmonton, and that the whole of the
grading would be finished this year.
The line north from Athabasca Landing
will be carried along the valley of the
Athabasca to Athabasca Lake, with
branches west to tap the Peace river
valley.
Meanwhile both the Grand Trunk
Pacific and the Canadian Pacific have
had surveys made for the lines north
from Edmonton in that reg.on. It is
understood that one of the subjects
discussed by Mr. E. J. Chambeilin, the
general manager of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, with the executive in Montreal, was the desirability of proceeding with this branch at the earliest
possible moment. Mr. Chamberlin
was able to report that a big movement of settlers into the district was
alicady going on, no fewer than 400
families of pioneers having gone into
the distr.ct from the company's station at Edson. west of Edmonton, this
summer. Before Mr. Chamberlin left
for Winnipeg last mght it was practically
decided to start this brunch due north
from Edmonton next spring.

LO, THE POOR SETTLER
The policy of the McBride government in giving away public lands on Graham
Island to land companies and speculators, to thc hindrance ol farm settlement
on the island, is rousing the temper of thc people of the Island, who now realise
how t heir welfare is suffering through this policy. An intending settler, writing
from Masset Inlet to the Vancouver Sunset declares that the conditions on the
Inlet und all over Graham Island are even worse than conditions in thc interior
of the Province.
"Here" he says, "not only have the land companies and speculators got the
bulk of the land, but also on that portion of the island lying east of Masset Inlet
which was reserved by the government from sale or lease. There, as well as elsewhere, the professional coal staker has got in his work so thoroughly that not a
foot of this line country can now be pre-empted, owing to the coal staking covering
the surface rights, as well as the underground rights. How the government is
going to get out of the muddle we know not. The land, being reserved from sale
or lease, prevents the agriculturist from taking possession. But if a coal license
can be granted, and control thc surface rights for a term of years, and then thc
licensee bc able to purchase the land, it looks decidedly as if it would stand airing
in the law courts. Not only can thc land office give no information or encouragement to the settlers, but some of thc understrappers go so far as to tell the applicants
that the pre-emptor is not worth as much to the government as the timber or
coal staker.
"There are about 500,000 acres of arable land on Graham Island, and it is
a safe prediction that the speculator owns two-thirds of if, which will mean lhat
it will cost the actual settlers millions of dollars to obtain this land, instead of the
government doing as the Dominion does, handing it over free and surveyed."
There are many other folk beside the people of Graham Island who realise
that a policy which enriches speculators and hinders thc settler is not a sound one.

That love grows cold with amazing rapidity in the land of the Midnight
Sun, was the ex|>erience of a California man who went to Alaska recently to get
married. The vicissitudes of the journey from Fairbanks to Dawson, mushing
it over the first snow, coming from a tropical to an Arctic clime, resulted in a considerable loss of weight and the bride to be, with Shylock insistence declined to
have the ceremony performed until he regained the exact avoirdupois he registered
when the engagement was made
"Evil communications corrupt good manners." Now the city council of North

LAURIER MAY NOT CO
A letter from Q, W. Morrow, who with
his family is visiting a number of the
coast cities en route to California,
states that I'rince Rupert property looks
belter to him every day. Mr. Morrow
says:
"The great progress of the coast
convinces me more than ever that if
thc Grand Trunk will pursue a policy
of development on a large scale, and the
city unite with them in carrying it out
on the broadest and most friendly terms
we cannot anticipate too much for
I'rince Rupert's future. I (urther think
that next spring real estate will be in
good demand as prices are now so high
for inside property in other coast cities
that I'rince Rupert offers more advantages for investment to the average
man."
Mr. Morrow found that it rained
heavier in Portland, Ore., for a whole
day than he had ever experienced in
Prince Rupert. Mrs. Morrow and
family are well and thoroughly enjoying
their holiday.
Leeds, England, Nov. 14.���A prominent Canadian journalist has informed
the Yorkshire Post that Sir Wilfrid
Laurier is disinclined to come to the next
Imperial conference. He is getting on
in years and during the last conference
he was worried by politicians on both
sides with requests to speak. These
made him very uncomfortable.
Again, the political situation in Canada
is developing in a way which calls for
the Premier's continued presence there.

It has just been ascertained, says the
Inland Colonist, that the Ptarmigan
group of mineral claims, or "Singlehurst
Mine" as it is locally called, are owned
by George Gould, the New York multimillionaire. The Ptarmigan mine can
bc classed as a proven mine. It is located six miles from Kitselas, up Gold
Creek trail. It was discovered ten
years ago, and considerable work was
done on it by S. Arden Singlehurst,
representing George Gould. The vein
on the surface is about 14 inches wide
and carries value in gold, silver, lead,
and copper, running from $60 to $650
per tori.
A shalt was sunk on the vein to a
depth of 150 feet, and in addition
to considerable cross-cutting and drifting, the vein was prospected to greater
depth by diamond drill. The result of
the work at that lime showed the vein
to widen from S to 14 inches on the
surface, to 14 feet between walls 150
feet depth. All work al that depth was
in ore carrying high values in gold, silver,
copper, and lead, as given above, and
reliable miners who were at that time
employed on the work and are still
residing on the Skeena, agree that there
are at least 50,000 tons of ore blocked
out that will average $60 per ton, and
which can be concentrated down to a
rich product.
That Mr. Gould has the property
crown granted, and continues to pay
taxes on it year by year, goes to confirm
the recent rumor that it is his intention
of pumping out the lower levels and
commence operations on it when the
railway is completed to Kitselas and
declared open for freight traffic next
spring. Kitselas is the only outlet for
the Gold creek mining district, and it is
only necessary for this one proven
mine to commence concentrating and
shipping to give Kiteslas and the Gold
creek district behind her a boom equal
to that which Hazelton is now having.

Regret* That Alaska Men Miss Great
Opportunities for Investment in
Prince Rupert Through Vessels
Not Calling Here.
Alter four months' absence from Prince
Rupert, H. O. Butler of the firm of Law
& Butler of this city has returned from
the north via Seattle and Vancouver.
Mr. Butler has been practically all
summer in the neighborhood of the cities
of Dawson, Fairbanks and Nome in which
cities he has mercantile interests. His
visit was for the purpose of attending
to these and to investigate the country,
especially in the interior where he had
not previously been. The result of
Mr. Butler's investigations is an enthusiastic report regarding the land of
Alaska.
"The gold production there this
season," he said, "has been very heavy
Those people who pessimistically say
that Alaska is on the wane are far out.
True, fewer fnen pour into the country
now for gold mining but on the other
hand the dredger mining of gold is
increasing rapidly, and every dredge
does the work that many men did
formerly.
"At Dawson there is being assembled
a large dredge the largest I ever saw.
It has fifteen foot buckets, and will be
responsible for a tremendous amount
of work. They are quite excited about
dredge work all over there now, and
many new dredges are likely to be
installed next year.
"Thc new Squirrel river district is
very promising. The geological expert
who investigated it recently reports that
the formation there is exactly the same
as that in the neighborhood of Nome,
Dawson   and   Fairbanks.     Some   five
 : strikes have been made there by placer
mining   I   understand.     The   bedrock
P. O. BOX 172  js exactly similar to that at  Dawson,
���a******************     Nome, and Fairbanks, and I think the
Squirrel river district bids fair to be a
very productive country in gold.
"I have been anxious to interest those
who have made money in Alaska, in
the advantages for sound and remunerative investment in Prince Rupert.
Too many of them I feel are making
rather a mistake by passing over Prince
Rupert without so much as a look in, and
Cor. 2nd A��., 6th Si' planting their gains in Seattle. The
fact that the steamers run away outside
our famous harbor when carrying
passengers from Nome to Seattle is of
course one reason why Seattle reaps the
Limited.

TO  BOOM  BEAR  RIVER VALLEY
Steel   I*  Now  Laid  a*  Far as  Bitter
Creek
The news that steel is laid on the grade
: of the Portland Canal Short Line out of
Stewart as far as Bitter Creek is attracting special attention owing to the
reports of more rich discoveries in the
Bear River country.
The fact that Mr. D.D. Mann who is
! building the line purchased over 4,000
acres of mineral lands along thc Bear
| River was looked upon as evidence of
| his confidence in the country.   It would
appear as if the line is being put into
working order at the right moment.
Over five hundred mineral claims
have now been staked in the vicinity of
thc Bear River Valley and some of
the larger mines are ready to
creeks, and thc big mines are waiting to
ship ore as soon as the ballasting of thc
rond is complete.

Painter (to his servant)���Now carry
this picture to the exhibition gallery.
But be careful, for the paint is not
quite dry yet.
Servant���Oh, that's all right. I'll
put on an old coat.
"Can't I put on this new hobble
skirt and show it to some friends before
I buy it?" asked Mrs. Bildojjer.
"No," replied the saleswoman firmly,
"you can't try it on. This is one of our
strictly pay-as-you-enter models."
"Why were you not at your desk
this morning?" asked the head of the
firm. "We can't allow this sort of
thing to go on. If you are permitted
to remain away without notice, other
employees will be wanting to have the
same privilege."
"I'm sorry, but I had to stay at
home this forenoon and help my wife
discharge the cook."
"Oh, in that case, I beg your pardon
for speaking harshly."
"Father," said little Tommy one day,
"what is an equinox?"
Father���Why, er���it is ahem! For
goodness sake. Tommy, don't you
know anything about mythology at
all? An equinox was a fabled animal
���half horse, half cow. It's name is
derived from the words 'equine' and
'ox.' It does seem as if these public
schools don't teach children anything
nowadays."
THE PREACHER
Last eve I sought the church and
heard a gifted pastor preach the Word.
He talked of men whose days were o'er
two thousand years ago or more. He
talked of kings whose bones were dust,
whose sceptres were reduced to rust so
long ago their stories seem like fragments of a summer dream. He said no
word of those who strive in this old
world, intense, alive, who fight their
battles every day, obscurely, in their
feeble way. I'd just as soon be in the
dark concerning Father Noah's ark; I
care not for the tents of Baal, or Joseph's
corn, or Jonah's whale; I want to hear
my pastor talk about the people on this
block, whose lives are full of stings and
smarts, whose problems often break
their hearts. I'd rather learn some way
to cheer some hopeless toiler struggling
here, than learn how Pharaoh blew his
dough about five thousand years ago.
The dust of kings in ancient ground is
worth a half a cent a pound; and
Ashur's widow's tears were dried before
old Julius Caesar died; the things of
which my pastor talks are dead as
Adam's brindle ox, but all around us
there are cries, and wringing hands and
weeping eyes. He'll have to get his
text on straight, and bring his gospel up
to date.���Walt Mason.

AN INDIAN DRAMA
Wonderful   Playograph   Now   Being
Shown at Emprea* Theatre
COUNTY COURT
A Number  of  Case* Disposed  of By
the Court Yesterday
A young newspaper man of New York
recently won a $100 prize for the word
playograph, and the descriptive capability of the word could not be more
aptly illustrated than in "The Pale- j
face's Wooing," one of the films now |
being run at the Empress theatre. The
little drama is well staged and thoroughly
well acted. It is hard to believe that
it is not really being acted by living
characters. There is not u flicker to
betray its origin, nor any mechanical
defect to mar the illusion. This is a
film that all should make a point of
seeing.
Judge Young presided over the County
Court today and dealt with a nujmber
of cases the following being the result
in regard to the principal ones:
The appeal case of Rex vs. Dorsey has
been adjourned to next court. That
of Rex vs. Astoria goes to the foot of

Alexee was tried yesterday morning and

James L. Hatch, one of the pioneer
prospectors of Bulkley valley, who has
prospected in British Columbia for more
than fifteen years, brought to town this
week the first samples to arrive here,
of the great mineral discovery recently
made on Milk Creek, a stream running
into the Telkwa river, says the Omineca
Herald. Hatch is not interested in the
property, which was slaked by Pete
Powers, Dick Hamilton, G. Carlson and
Beamn.
From eight to twelve feet of galena
ore has been uncovered by what work
has been done and for a surface showing
is great. The samples will easily run
sixty per cent lead and it is claimed are
representative of the whole vein. Galena
ore in this district can be deluded
upon, so far as known, to contain two
ounces of silver to the unit of lead, or
better, and on this basis the ore is worth
in excess of one hundred dollars to the
ton, at present prices of lead and silver.
Many fine pro|>crties have been
staked on Milk creek but in moat
cases thc veins are narrow but carrying
ore of a very high grade, sometimea
running into the hundreds of dollars.
All of the prospectors interested in that
section arc feeling jubliant over this
latest find as with development it
inditates the tonnage which, more
surely than anything else, will bring
the rails to the camp.

NEW APARTMENT BUILDING
H. F.
n
Budapest, Nov. 14.���The Brigand of j
the Pussta, Vitalis, for whom two hundred and fifty gendarmes and soldiers
have been hunting three months or
longer, returned to his native village,
took a bath, and killed himself.
This notorious murderer and robber
had fooled the authorities so long that
his capture was considered an impossibility. Whenever he seemed to be in
the clutches of the police or soldiery,
he killed a few, sometimes half a dozen
or more, and made good his escape. At
first he liked his adventurous life, but
it palled upon him in the end, as he
wrote in a message to his wife, found
on his person, und as he could not find
any rest on this earth, he sought it in
death.
The brigand was found sitting on  the
' door step of his hut one morning by i
j an old woman of his acquaintance.   He i
| asked where  his wife was,  and  being ]
; informed that she was sick in  a hos-
1 pital, he sent her a letter and a bag
' of money.    "After you have delivered
this, go to the gendarmes and tell them
1 where they can find me.   Claim the re-
1 ward   of   twenty-five  hundred   francs.
��� That will keep you for the rest of your
j life."
The old woman did as she was bidden.   When the gendarmes broke into
tha house, the brigand threw up both
i hands.   "Don't shoot," he said, "I want \
I to die by my own hand."   At the same j
time he fired a bullet from a rifle hid-1
, den  under  the  table.    He  pulled  the
trigger  with   his  nuked  toe  and   died
instantly.

GREAT SOIL FOR SPUDS
Another of the Queen Charlotte Islands It Heard From
Thut the Queen Charlotte islands are
going to be the truck farms to supply
this greut port with fresh vegetables
has long been conceded, but one of the
group has never been mentioned in connection with ugricultureal possibilitis.
This is Biirnaby island, which nestles
in a bay near the south-east point of
the group. Mr. Manson, M. P. P., is
showing with some pride a collection of
big cabbage, turnips, carrots and potatoes grown there by Ambrose Jones. All
of them are remarkably fine specimens,
worthy of being sent to an outside
agricultural exhibition.
These vegetables came as a surprise
because Burnaby island is in a well
defined mineral belt, and there is bery
little of agricultural land on the island.
There are only a few inconsequential
patches, and it was upon one of these
the fine vegetables were grown by Mr.
Jones.
PERSONAL
Another improvement is forthcoming
for Second avenue H. F. McRae having
arranged to build on Lot 9, Block 20, a
fine two-story office and apartment
building.

Mr. McRae will himself occupy offices
in the building.
Plans are now in preparation for the
building which will be a frame structure
substantially constructed, and fitted
with all modern equipment..
It is expected that the building will be
ready by January 1st.

Letter From the Premier
William Manson, M. P. P., is in receipt of a letter from Premier McBride
expressing his thunks for the courtesies
shown to him and to Mrs. McBride

"Dear Mr. Manson,���I desire to
thank you und Mrs, Manson for your

The old woman that gave the brigand
away was denounced by the village
people und had to flee for her life. The
villagers said the brigand had never
done them any harm, and that it was
infamous to denounce him to the police.
However, the old woman got the twenty-
five hundred francs (five hundred dollars).
