The house was burnt to tinder, and

It becomes all the more deplorable
]en it is learned that not a nickel of
property was insured.    On  being

Cat Was Burned to Death

pently been suffocated by the smoke.
beautiful coat was transformed by
flumes into the mutilated tones of
death. On proceeding into the other
rooms even greater disorder could be
detected. A quantity of rich clothing
was littered upon the bed, a poor resemblance of its former grandeur. Mrs.
Carl's opera cloak presented a melanchloy
aspect, its silken folds and ornate
mountings being badly contrasted with
the sears and singings of the flames.
Two Dogs Suffocated
Lying on the bed, too, was the carcase
of Speedy, a terrier of noted pedigree
and excellent ratting fame. Its silken
coat had suffered from the deluge of
water but it had escaped the tlam s.
Speedy was one of the treasures of the
house and his loss is more regretted by
Mrs. Carl than almost anything else.
He was a great favorite and had been
all round the world with her. Lying
away in a corner lay another dead dog
that had met iu death under similar
circumstances. For the time being
the house had been turned into a lethal
chamber. Everything living had succumbed to the flames in short time.
Money Miraculously Saved
Of course the people of the house
were out at the time of the occurrence
or it never would have happened. Mrs.
Carl had gone to the Empress theatre
and prior to leaving the house decided
to take a bill of $300 with her. Had
she left that money behind it is just
a question whether she would have lost
it or not. Had she left it lying about
unprotected, it certainly would have
gone. Two cheques amounting to about
$400 or $s500 in the top drawer of her
dressing table were savedho wever. Tho
recovery of this money is one of the
most remarkable things about the
fire. The dressing table itself was badly
burnt but it appears that the water
was brought to play upon the house
just in time to save the bank. Mrs.
Carl's jewelry wss lying idly sbout the
dressing table and naturally it wss
destroyed. The pieces that still retain
a semblance of their former selves she
has sent to the jewelers to see if anything
csn be done with them.

What They Saw.
Berlin, Dec. 17.���"The Messrs. Bran-
P��n and Trench," the Englishmen
l*aiting trial here on a charge of es-
fionage, are said to be really Captain
pwnard Frederic French of the Royal
Marine Light Infantry, and Lieutenant
Vivian H. Brandon.
The charges against them are of
"any counts, but it may be summarized as including trepassing, espionage and attempting to convey
W**m to a foreign power. Almost
N�� the time of their detention they
have been kept under close confinement.
The trial, at which the British foreign
office has applied for leave to be represented, may possibly be conducted in
camera.
Captain Trench comes of a well-
known family, of which Lord Ash-
town is the head. He is a cousin of
Colonel Trench, late baval attache.
Sir William Bull has been acting throughout in the interests of Captain Trench
and Mr. Brandon, and he has instructed
two of the best-known German lawyers
to defend his clients when the trial
comes on. The prisoners will be defended by Dr. von Gordon of this city
and Hans Otto of Leipsic.
The "Nauestinachrichten" demands
that the prisoners shall be made incapable of reporting what they may
have seen. The journal expresses the
hope that they may be subjected to
a long period of detention, with ap-
propriate mental treatment, so that they
may not retain too clear a memory of
what they have seen.
number of men passed by the fire
unthinkingly, Mr.F.Hemming, clerk of
the Premier hotel, had the foresight to
examine the nature and dimensions
of the fire before dismissing it as of no
consequence. Immediately he realized
the true state of affairs he hadthe whole
Premier fire battery turned on to the
flames. In a very short time he had
about five hundred feet of hose In
operation from two streams, one from
the basement and one from the parlor
window, at a pressure of nearly two
hundred pounds.
Mayor Saw the Blaze
The fire was noticed by the Mayor
and Alderman Smith on their way to
the council meeting and they sent
Building Inspector McNeil to see about
it. He returned with the report that it
was under control, meaning that it was
not likely to spread.
CITY PRINTING
IN DISPUTE
SOME INQUIRIES ARE MADE IN
THE COUNCIL MEETING
Remarks in "Optimist" Raise Question, and Printing of 'Phone Directory, Building By-law, and Voters'
List Is Discussed.
"I don't pay much attention to
what I read in the newspapers," said
Alderman Hilditch at last night's council
meeting," but I noticed something in
the Optimist tonight which brings up
thc question of city printing."
He went on to inquire about the
progress of the telephone directory which
he said was badly needed, and was
informed by Alderman Smith that it
was now completed.
It was explained further lhat the
work of getting the directory printed
has been left to Mr. Love acting under
the instruction from the telephone
committee and that after endeavoring
to get out a directory in which there
were advertisements enough to pay the
cost of printing, Mr. Love finding this
impracticable, had tried the various
printing houses for prices and given the
work to the house bidding lowest.
Are tenders always called for city
printing? wss the question uppermost
in Aldermsn Hilditch's mind, snd he
asked the City Clerk about it. Mr.
Woods informed him that in all cases
of large jobs tenders were asked for, but
small matters requiring printing were
shared out amongst the various houses.
"What about the Building By-law?"
aske'd Alderman Hilditch.
"That," ssid Alderman Pattullo, "was
given out by my instructions to the
Optimist office."
In reading the Optimist's remarks
on city printing. Alderman Hilditch
had got it into his head that the Optimist
clsimed it did all the city printing. A
copy of the paper was produced and
the passage in question referred to. It
was found to resd "most" not "all."
The sldermsn did not press this point
further, but a few minutes later when
the question of the printing of the
voters' list csme up, he suggested that
this list be printed in full in sil three
papers so that every voter in the city
might see it in good time. He thought
that perhaps it would not be ready
soon enough if printed in the usual
way supposing the office securing the
job were crowded with work.
As the city already had a contract
at a rate per line for newspaper printing
PRINCE GEORGE HAS MISHAP
ON HER NORTHBOUND TRIP
One Report Says She is Wrecked, Another Aground-
Telegraph Line Breaks Down Again at Auspicious
Moment so That no   News   Can   Get
Through���Officials are Dumb
persistent rumors regarding the vessel
he had wired to Mr. Nicholson in Vancouver for particulars, but up till late
in the afternoon he had not received any
reply; and until he was in receipt of
some definite information he was bound
to think that the Prince George would
be here as usual to fulfil schedule,
perhaps a little late, but here all the
same. Of course he could not discredit
the evidence of the telegrams sent to
the merchants who had goods on the
vessel but he was inclined to think
that the real state of affairs was very
much less serious than these short
messages conveyed.
Telegraph Broke Down
To add to the trouble the telegraph
wire became interrupted just when
word should have been coming through
so that the people of Prince Rupert
were kept completely in the darkness
as to the real fate of the vessel.
Early this forenoon a foreboding
rumor went abroad in the city to the
effect that the steamer Prince George
was down somewhere between Seattle
and Victoria or between Victoria and
Vancouver. In some instances the
rumor went so far as to say that she
was wrecked and that all hands on
board were drowned but the more
modified and more likely report states
that she has gone aground and will
only be delayed a little time.
The Firat News
The first intimation that reached the
city came through Messrs. Stewart Si
Mobley who had a consignment of
Christmas goods on board. They received a wire from their shippers in
Seattle, C. W. Chamberlain, bearing the
ominous tidings: "Shipped goods by
Prince George which is reported wrecked;
shall we duplicate order and send on
Cottage City tonight?"
Reported Aground
Almost at the same time the Prince
Rupert Fish Market received another
wire stating that the vessel was reported
aground. Of course the news was immediately all over town aad many
anxious inquiries were made, because,
although the vessel was not expected
to be bringing up many passengers she
was carrying a lot of Christmas consignments for the merchants in the city
who were eager to know the worst so as
to be in a position to remedy it. In
addition to that, there were not a few
people whose business in Vancouver
and Victoria demanded that they should
be back this trip.
Offices Were Beseiged
With the whole city agog with the
news, the G.T.P. offices were bombarded
with inquirers, but to all such the company officials had to reply that they
did not know anything about it, at
least not more than the rumor and the
telegrams to other people. They had
received no information themselves and
were not in a position to give any
information.
Superintendent Mehan Wires
Mr. Mehan, the general superintendent, intimated that as a result of the
Where Did Accident Happen
Opinion conflicts greatly as to where
the vessel is supposed to have bee*
wrecked or to have gone aground.
The prevalent opinion is that the mishap
occurred between Seattle and Vancouver. She was due to leave Seattle
early on Sunday afternoon and should
have made the journey to Victoria, her
first port of call in the early evening.
Unless she encountered a fog or a snowstorm il is not easy to understand how
she came to go aground during this
part of the voyage. According to
schedule she would leave Victoria about
twelve o'clock on the Sunday evening
and should have made Vancouver about
seven o'clock in the Monday morning.
While making the circuit of the islands
in this part of the voyage in the dark
it is just possible that she ran ashore
or did something that has given rise
to the rumor of her breaking up.
The Winga of Rumor
Many people were under the impression lhat the boat was completely
lost, and while lamenting the tragedy
they recited in restaurants and other
places throughout the town the terrible
j dangers of that particular part of the

1 - THE COSY CORNER =
1     DEVOTED   PRINCIPALLY   TO  THE  INTERESTS  OF   WOMEN
SS|>S^.I��-s��M^.l^
This is a little section of the paper, which from day to day wrll 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 is expressed that "The
Cosy Corner" will fill a social need.
Home-made Xmas Gifts
There is often more of the real Christmas spirit in the gift of a hemstitched
pocket-handkerchief than in that of a
cut glass berry bowl. Who has not felt
a teary sort of warmth about one's heart
when the removal of dainty wrappings
discloses a little gift, no matter how
simple, that has been fashioned by the
loving fingers of a friend? One pictures
her sitting in the glow of the lamplight,
perhaps, embroidering kindly thoughts
into the bit of work she holds in her
hands.
The woman whose pocketbook will
not meet the demands of her generosity
should be able to contrive many charming
remembrances if she is willing to give
a little time and utilize materials she
may have at hand.
If one embroiders well there is no
end to the useful gifts that may be
made from a yard or so of linen. There
are the linen napkin rings, which may
be made for each member of the family
if one wishes. They are made of fine
linen which should be folded double
in a band about three inches wide, and
long enough to encircle the napkin
On one end is the button and on the
other, which is eut in a point, is the
buttonhole. When embroidered with a
monogram or a spray of flowers, starched
stiff and buttoned over a dainty card
they make a most acceptable gift.
From linen crash may be made a
neat covering for the contents of a
suit-case, either bound about the edges
with braid or finished with scallop
embroidery and having a monogram in
one corner. Then there is an infinite
variety of bags which may be made
from linen or crash or cretonne, from
the delicately embroidered, lace-trimmed
corset bag to the sturdy kitchen bag for
string, or dust cloths, or clothespins.
A most* inexpensive gift is crochet
buttons. These may be all the same
size or in assorted sizes. The wooden
molds are first covered with white
linen over cotton cloth, and then the
crochet circle of the proper size fitted
over them. They sould be caught on
to a dark green card which might have
a Christmas greeting painted on in;
fancy lettering.
The baffling "man" problem may
be solved by the useful shirt bag which
will be a joy forever to the man who
travels. This is made of linen crash,
or any similar material, cut like a great
envelope which should be large enough
to contain four to six shirts as they are
folded. The flap of the bag may be cut
to a point or have rounded corners and
should button over. The bag may be
bound with braid or worked with a
buttonhole stitch about the edge, and
have a monogram in the corner.
The woman who likes to knit will
enjoy making reins for some child
These are made so as to slip over the
neck of the child like a harness and if
trimmed with numerous little bells will
be a great delight. They may also be
made from ribbon. The ribbon hoops
for the baby, also with their tiny tinkling
bells, may, quite as well, be covered
with bright knitted yarn. Another gift
for the baby is a chamois ball. This is
made from pieces of chamois cut about
the size and shape of the sections of an
orange and crocheted together after
the edges have been buttonholed. When
this is stuffed with cottcon it makes a
soft pretty ball.
A thoughtful little gift for the work
bag is  the scissors protector.    Cover
, a cork with crochet of colored silk and
crochet a cahin by which it may be
attached to the work bag.   Then when
; the scissors are not in use the point
may be stuck into the cork, instead
of boring holes in the contents of the
bag as they have a way of doing.
The Christmas Dinner
The housekeeper will find it a great
help and a needed reminder if she will
write down carefully her menu 'or
the Christmas dinner, no matter how-
simple it is to be. Everything that is
possible to prepare the day be'ore
should be in readiness, so that mother's
Christmas may not mean a day in a hot
kitchen, penetrated occasionally by the
sounds of merry-making in the house, in
which she may not join. Below are a
few simple menus which may prove
helpful:

HOME  MADE  CHRISTMAS  CANDIES
Old-Faahioned Butter Scotch
Put one pound of granulated sugar and
a small teacupful of water in a three-
pint porcelain-lined saucepan, and set
over a blue flame. Stir the mixture
until the sugar is completely di-ajolved,
then place a wooden cover over it and
let boil for a few minutes. Remove
the cover and watch carefully. When
the syrup is quite thick and the color
has changed from a water white to a
dark straw color the candy is done.
Take it from the stove and stir in two
tablespoonfuls of butter that has been
softened, but not melted, also six or
eight drops oil of lemon; set back on
the stove for a few seconds and then
pour the mixture thinly over oiled
sheets of tin. Before it hardens mark
it in squares or diamonds. Add a
pinch of cream of tartar to the mixture
when it begins boiling.
Chocolate Fudge
Melt one-quarter cup of butter. Mix
together in a separate dish one cup of
white sugar, one cup of brown sugar,
one quarter cup of molnsses and one-
half cup of cream. Add this to the
butter, and after it has been brought

City Employees Considerately Treated to an Advance
Since several city employees have
mentioned to Alderman Mobley the
fact that their wages for December are
not due till after Christmas, and since
Christmas comes but once a year,
Alderman Mobley mentioned the matter
at last night's council meeting and it
was forthwith agreed that wages up to
the fifteenth of December shall be
paid before the twenty-fifth to city
workers so that they may have tho
ready handy to "keep old Christmas
merry still."

ELEVEN MILLION
TO ABOLISH WAR
ANDREW CARNEGIE ESTABLISHES A NEW WORK
Trust Will Have a Perpetual Income
of $500,000 After Universal Peace
Cornea Income Will Be Applied to
Fighting Other Evila.
Washington, Dec. 17.���Andrew Carnegie has broken out in another place.
Today he handed over to a board of
trustees $10,000,000 five per cent first
mortgage bonds, valued .it $11,500,000,
the revenue of which will be used to
"hasten the abolition of international
war," and establish a lasting world
peace. The formal transfer was made
at a meeting in the rooms of the Carnegie
Research Foundation, the trustees choosing as president, United States Senator
Rlihu Root, the representative of the'
United States at The Hague Tribunal.
The  method   by   which   Ihe  annual |
income of half a million dollars shall!
be expended  is  left   by   Mr.   Carnegie
in   the   hands   of  the   trustees.    The
foundation   is   to   be   |ierpetual,   and
when   thc   establishment   of   universal
peace is attained, the donor provides:
thai  the reveune shall be devoted   to
the banishment ol the next most  degrading  of  evils,  "the  suppression  of
which would most advance t he elevation
and happiness of men."
In a letter to the trustees. Mr. Carnegie says:
"Although we no longer eat our
fellow men nor torture prisoners, nor
sack cities killing their inhabitants,
we still kill in war like barbarians.
"Only wild beasts arc excusable for
doing such in this twentieth century
of thc Christian era. The crime of
war is abhorrent, since it decides not
in favor of the right, but always In
favor of the strong. The nation is
criminal which refuses arbitration and
drives its adversary to a tribunal
which knows nothing of righteous judgment."

TONIGHT'S COUNCIL MEETING
The Mayor and his associates are to be commended for their action in calling
a public meeting tonight in order to render account to the citizens of their stewardship. Their action in the matter is as exemplary as their restraint under a long
continued fire of malicious criticism.
There was too much real work to be done for the council to take time to reply
to the daily tirades of slander and misrepresentation directed towards it from
certain quarters. The council was elected to carry out the work of improving
Prince Rupert not to carry on unseemly and unending discussions with splenetic
editors. Already, the daily vaporings have outrun themselves, and the public
has come to see what was behind the conspiracy of slander. But as a final demonstration of their readiness to face the citizens and defend every action of their
administration the public meeting is quite justified under the present peculiar
circumstances. If anywhere there is to be found one last lingering citizen who
has not seen through the campaign of slander to its motives, a visit to to-iight's
meeting will probably open the eyes of his understanding.
The whole subject betokens the peculiar position which Prince Rupert occupies
among the pioneer cities of the world. Usually the pioneer city attracts only
pioneer spirits. A spirit of helpfulness pervades the community. The newspapers!
vie with one another in their efforts to "boost" the place and encourage public
spirit in: the community. This spirit of helpfulness acta as a magnet in attracting
population. The optimistic and encouraging tone of the local press is noted and
commented upon all over the country. Every new town is judged by the tone of
ita local newspapers. When they are of the right kind, they are the best kind
of advertisement possible.
Unfortunately we in Prince Rupert have been afflicted with another kind
of press, a press that has done nothing but create a wrong impression of the town,
and outrage the decencies of life in its treatment of our public men. We are all
accustomed to its daily exhibitions of bad temper and worse taste and pay little
heed to'it. But what is the effect upon the minds of the outside world by the
publication of "The Mayor is a Liar" editorials, or the making of wholesale and
entirely groundless charges of incompetence against the council.
One article of that nature does more injury to Prince Rupert in the eyes of
Canada, than a $10,000 publicity campaign can do good. Any journal so conducting itself is a menace to the welfare of every business man here. Whatever
comic interest such writings may have as a literary diversion, the serious injury
they work the town cannot be overlooked.
It is a filthy bird that fouls its own nest, and usually an incorrigible bird.
Years do not appear to have brought wisdom, and an appeal to ita good sense
is obviously impossible. It may squander its own heritage if it will; it has no right
to injure the prospects of the city.
There is one effectual way of squelching it. Perhaps some day when the
business, men of Prince Rupert waken up to the fact that they would be better off
were its croakings silenced forever, they will take steps to let it sink to a painless,
peaceful death.
In the meantime, tonight's public meeting of the council should not be missed
by those who have the welfare of the city at heart.

TWO BITS FOR BOOKLET
Nominal Fa* Charged for Copies of
Building By-law
The booklet containing the Building
By-lav. has been carefully gone over
by the building inspector, and is now
pronounced complete and O. K.
Whether it should be issued free to
those requesting it, or whether a small
fee should lie charged for it was the question before the council last night.
"To hive the provisions of the By-law
aa well and as widely known as possible is advisable to avoid infringements
through ignorance," said Alderman Mobley who was in favor of issuing the
By-law free.
"Following the example of the
Provincial Government," aaid Alderman
Naden, ''we ought to charge for everything printed for the public information
in this way." He thought, however,
that ten rents per copy was a sufficient
charge to prevent wastage of copies.
There are only 200 of them.
On the motion of Alderman Lynch,
however, seconded by Alderman Mclntyre, the sum fixed on was twenty-five
cents. All who desire a copy of the
Building By-law can have one from the
City Clerk for that sum.

San Francisco, Dec. 19.���On a voyage
of 14,600 miles, the British steam
yacht Slema, Captain Charles Polk-
inghorne, arrived today on her way
to Vancouver. The little vessel, once
the pleasure craft of the Marquis of
Anglesea, sailed from Plymouth August 20, and came into the Pacific
through the Straits of Magellan.
The Slema had a hard lime of it
in September. Delayed by gales and
head seas she ran short of coal, and
was forced to burn up fittings in order
to reach Montevideo.

route In which they were convinced
the wreck must have taken place. It
was spoken of as a foregone conclusion,
yet on being questioned about the
authenticity of their report they had to
admit that it was entirely without
foundation. Until the telegraph is
again in operation it will be impossible
to tell the fate of the vessel, though
it is not likely that that fact will deter
the gossips from hanging the most
gruesome details upon the unsupported
rumors.
Wreck Is Not Feared
In official circles it is felt that had the
vessel gone down they would have been
informed before now. They are prepared to believe that she encountered
a mishap but do not credit a wreck.
Efforts are also being made to get the
information through the wireless but
so far without success.

Japanese papers just received here
from the Orient make it very plain that
Japan is expecting war with the United
Slates, "chiefly because of the hostile
| attitude of America," to quote the
! Tokio Nippon, which devotes much
space to an article warning Japan to
��� prepare for a clash. The publication,
i which is one of the influential journals
! of Japan, says:
' In vain fo statesmen ard enlight-
I ened publicists on each side preach the
| necessity and demonstrate the reality
j of mutual friendship.    None the lesa
, from time to time and e en with growing  iteration  come   from   the   United
States muttering of hostility which at
any moment may develop a strength
1 too great for official control.
"Japan must be prepared for that
i contingency. She must ask herself
| what objective this element of the
1 United States citizens have in view
when they advocate the expenditure of
' enormous sums for furnishing the Pacific
1 with a big fleet; creating a powerful
army on the Pacific slope; of building
| a huge coal depot and naval station
: in Hawaii and of fortifying the Philip-
', pines, Hawaii and Panama.
"Tnwilling as Japan may be to be-
��� lieve in any quarrel with her old friend,
; it would be madness for her to shut
her eyes to (acts which stare her in the
,face."

LAND  LEASE  NOTICE
Lot 8, Block 10, Section 1, is a low
lot situated just where the city proposes
to run a sewer loute, and this lot has been
secured from the G. T. P. by the city
in order that there may be no difficulty
about the laying of the pipe through it.
The Atlantic Realty company, represented by Mr. \V. S. Benson, own
several adjacent lots on each side of
Lot 8, and want to use Lot 8 as a very
convenient dump when they come to
level their set of lota.
Therefore   at   laat   night's    council
meeting   W.   S.   Benson   appeared   to
suggest  to the council  that  the  city
should   let   him   purchase   the  lot   at
$3000 (the price agreed to be paid for
it by the city to the G. T. P.) on the
understanding that the city could have
an easement over it for the sewer conduit.    He suggested that the conduit
he at once put in at thia point so that
filling can he proceeded with whenever
required   after  the   newer  is  complete
across the lot.
Alternatively  he suggested  that  the
; sewer conduit be laid, and his firm be
| granted   permission   to   Oil   above   it,
, raising  the  lot   and  so  increasing  its
I value to the city, the contractors doing
I the  Ailing to  be  responsible  for  any
i damage done the  pipe  which damage
| if done was to be made good.
It was Hi-reed in council on hearing
Mr. Benson's statement, that the Mayor
and finance committee should go into
the matter with a view to meeting Mr.
Benson's wish if possible, since all the
city requires the lot for is to secure the
sewer outlet through it.

'wanderlust' is German for 'creditors.' "
"Why did Mrs. Flimgilt insist on

RAILWAY INSISTS
ON DIRTY FACES
NEW   ORDER    ISSUED   ON   THE
HARRIMAN  SYSTEM
Anxiety of Engine Drivers to Clean up
Before Entering Terminals Declared the Cause of Many Accidents
on Lines.
the roads of the Harriman system between the Missouri river and Puget
Sound and New Orleans to the Pacific
Ocean.
The "dirty" order, as it is called by
the employees of the road, is altogether in the interest of safety and is
only one of the rules by which the
Harriman railroads are waging a relentless war against accidents to passengers and to employees. Unofficially,
the order reads:
"He who wishes to hold his job as
engineer, fireman, conductor, flagman
or brakeman, must come into terminals
with unwashed hands and dirty face."
According to Assistant General Ware
of the Union Pacific who is responsible
for the order, close investigation resulted in the discovery that the biggest
wrecks on his road happened at terminal
points. And in many cases the engineer
or fireman, instead of being in the cab
watching diligently for some signal or
obstruction on the tracks, has been down
in the gangway, or some other convenient point, adjusting a necktie, removing
overalls, washing his face and hands
and making himself otherwise presentable in order that he would not have
to spend time doing so after he had
surrendered his locomotive at the end
of the run. In some cases it was found
that both the engineer and the fireman
were down in the gangway, leaving the
locomotive to run itself.
To guard against this lack of watchfulness Mr. Ware has ordered that
trainmen shall not leave their posts
until the run is ended, and prima facie
evidence that his order has not been
obeyed will be the fact that the trainman
has clean hands and face or haa "dressed
up" in any manner whatever.
Omaha, Neb., Dec. 19.���Cleanliness
is not next to godliness on the big
Harriman railroad system, where or
ders have just been issued that the
trainman who comes uito a terminal
with clean hands or face will be summarily discharged. In the future all
trainmen are expected to have dirty
