NOT RENEWED
TECHNICAL OBJECTIONS RAISED
BY TWO COMMISSIONERS
Peculiar Ruling of Licenae Board���
All Other Licensee Are Renewed���
Charge la Laid Against the Knox
Hotel.
Although there is no charge or suspicion of misdemeanor against A. J.
Prudhomme'B conduct of the Savoy
Hotel, Licenses Commissioners Smith
and Merrylield this morning refused
to renew his license. They urged as a
reason for their action that the original
license wasn ot legally obtained. Corley
& Burgess's license obtained at the same
time and under the same circumstances
they granted, however.
At the outset over the adoption of
the minutes of the three previous
meetings Commissioner Merryfield objected to the minutes of the meeting
which he abluptly left. His contention
was thut he had given notice that he
would leave before the vote was taken
on the applications of Messrs. Corley
& Burgess and A. J. Prudhomme.
Alter some discussion on the motion of
I Commissioner Merryfield seconded by
I Commissioner Smith thc minutes were
expunged.
A communication was read from

as a violation of the Liquor License
By-law. This matter was discussed, and
it was ruled that the Chief of Police
shall warn license holders to comply
with the by-law at once.
Information laid against J. F. McDonald of the Prince Rupert Wholesale
Liquor Supply company that he had
supplied liquor by retail on the night
of the 31st of December, was laid before
the board. Information was also laid
by the Chief of Police against the
proprietors of the New Knox Hotel
for having supplied liquor on two
Sundays to persons not guests of the
hotel.
Renewals were granted to the Premier
Hotel, G. T. P. Inn and New Knox
Hotel. Complaint against the latter
will be investigated.    An entirely new-
license was applied for, and granted
to Messrs. Corley & Burgess through
Mr. Carss, who stated that in view
of the technical irregularities at the
meeting in connection with the first
application he had made the new one
which comes in force on the 16th inst.
Commissioner Stork���"Does that mean that they have no license now?"
Commissioner Smith held that the
proprietors must consider that for
themselves. He admitted thBt it would
be a hardship on them if charged by
the Chief of Police for illicit sale, but
the point was not clear.
A. J. Prudhomme applied for renewal.
It was pointed out to him by Commissioner Smith that the same difficulty
which had made Corley & Burgess apply
for a new license applied to his case.
There was a doubt whether his license
haa really been legally granted. Mr.
Prudhomme declared that he had been
assured by Mr. Carss that his license
was legal otherwise he would not have
run it. He thought the commissioners
were taking advantage of a technicality
It was moved by Commissioner Smith
that this matter should stand over,
and the m it ion was carried.
J. Y. Rochester, Maurice Bondeau
nnd Peter Black had their renewals
granted. All the wholesale applications
were granted.
Mr. Julius Levy, through Mr. Patmore, applied for u bottle license, and
the application was considered, but
will have further consideration tomorrow
when the License Board sits again at
10 a.m.
The court which the police com
missioners are holding at the City Ha
to try the charge against Sergeau
Regan of accepting bribes for protectin
gamblers, was on Saturday made th*
scene of several exciting incident.
Charges and countercharges were ril
among the witnesses, who on severs
occasions almost came to blows. Mucl
of the evidence was expressed in sucl
heated language as to be quite un
printable. The commissioners, Mayo
Stork and Alderman Mobley are atil
sitting, determined to get to the botton
of the charges and countercharges o
conspiracy which are being made.
The testimony of the man Zarelli
was stoutly contradicted by John Goodman, of the Grand Hotel, who sait
that the only offer of money he hac
ever made lo Regan was a $10 bil
and a box of cigars as a Christmai
gift, which the sergeant declined t<
accept. Goodman declared that Zerell
had threatened to blackmail him. unlesi
he gave him money.

time   bei g
The race for municipal honors shows
no abatement of energy or effort on the
part of the various contestents. On
j Saturday night in the Empress Theatre
I they rounded the laat bend in the
Icourse in a bunch and entered upon
[the final home run. The Dumpings
land borings were carried on flagrantly
Idcspite the proximity of the judge's
���box.
Alderman Pattullo figured prominently
throughout.   First of all he had a wordy
Bui-1 with Alderman Smith as to whether
(the latter had used hia vocal organs to
terrupt the meeting by "boo-hooing"
on the previous evening.   They differed
"idely and vigorously on the point, and
hen left it to the decision of the audience.    Mr. Pattullo's next opponent
vas Mr. Cuthbert, the gehtleman who
nade the G. T. P. aaaeasment which
Mderman   Pattullo   has   criticised   so
fconsiBtently.   Mr. Cuthbert denied that
be had made a biassed assessment in
favor of the Development Co. but failed
disprove the damaging facts of the
Uderman,     Another   notable   feature
the determined manner in which
H. Patmore, the chairman, delivered
audience from the soporofic effects
Fl   Mr.   Newton  who  apparently  waa
relying    upon    unlimited
placed at his disposal.
Leaders Are Brief
Mr. William Manson did not make
speech as there were so many others
on the platform and he thought it right
that they should have a chance.
Alderman Mobley followed this example closely. He supplemented his
platform by adding the abolition of
the Ward system and advocating that
steps be taken to facilitate t e fishi-g
industry of Prince Rupert Bnd district.
A market on the waterfront would
greatly facilitate that industry, the
magnitude and future prospect of which
was not properly realized.
Another Acrobat
Mr. Seguin who announced himself
a wage-earner, spoke in favor of Mr.
Manson. He admitted that at last
election he had opposed Mr. Manson,
but he now saw the error of his ways!
At last election he had worked sincerely
for Mr. Stork putting enthusiasm and
ginger into hia eflorts. He intended
to devote the same quality of enthusiasm now lor Mr. Manson.
Proceedings Warm Up
Alderman Pattullo's appearance had
a warming influence upon the audience.
He  wanted to  say  in  regard  to  Mr.
Seguin, and he would say it with great
reluctance,   that   that   gentleman   waa
in the same position as a number of
others who h d not got from the City
Council that which they hoped lo get.
This   remark   was   greeted   with  cries
of dissent but after the Alderman told
the   interrupters   that   they   were   not
going to rattle him no matter how they
behaved.    Proceeding he said that it
was with great regret he had learned
that Alderman Smith, Aldermanie candidate  George  Kerr,  had  seen  fit  to
come to their meeting on the evening
before  and   interrupt  the  proceedings
by   vulgarly   boohooing   the  speakers.
This accusation was greeted with loud
applause, in the midst of which Alderman
Smith rose from his seat and vehemently
denied   the  truth   of  the    statement.
Alderman   Pattullo   referred   to   Mr.
Williams who had said that he heard
Alderman   Smith   boohoo.   whereupon
Mr. Smith defied both of them to prove
It.    "It is a lie,"  he said  excitedly,
"one of the blackest lies you have ever
uttered."

Brains versus Beauty
A pretty woman is as often a tool
as an Adonis is a fop. Beauty and
brains are separate things, says a
writer in Truth, and they hardly ever
go together in wome , because brains
have a way of moulding the features
into strength. This is all very well
in a man in whom strength is considered beauty, but in a woman it
jars with our preconceived notions. In
Greece, it seems, brains used to make
a mould which was magnificently beautiful; it is not so in these duys. We
have a few curates with Greek profiles,
a few beauties of the classic type
but one seldom hears of their possessing exceptional brains. K Darwin
had been a woman letters would have
appeared in the papers suggesting lhat
women of science were dreadfully plain,
no doubt because, being plain women,
they took up science as a last resort.
Thc idea that si*.c and formation of
the brain forbade smooth, high brows
. nd a smnll mouth would never have
occurred to these critics.
Helen of Troy was'stupid; one cannot read her history without adoring
her for the mixture of beauty and silliness which produced Homer, and, after
many centuries, dipped Marlowe's pen
in the divine fire. To be "a lovlely
lady garmented in light from her own
beauty," whose "beauty made the
bright world dim," is, as a rule, reserved
for those who devote themselves to
being beautiful.
Mme. Recamier has been cited aa
an exception, but both her beauty and
her brains have been questioned. On
the whole, is seems that she was a
very pretly and graceful woman, with
exceptional charm, who studied the
art of listening. Brains have their
own beauty, but it is not of the son
to appeal to the man who goes to see
a procession of earnest and hardworking
women in the spirit of the man who
goes to a cattle fair and appraises them
quite in the manner of the purchaser.
The gift of great beauty is rare, and,
as has been said, it is its own excuse.
I'retliness is very common, but it does
not usually go with brains in cither
sex. But charm is independent ol
brains, beauty, income or anything
else,
matrimonial basis ol calculation which
prevails among those who write to the
newspa|iers we shall find that charm
wins the day.
Good for the Eyes
It strengthens the eyes to bathe
them either in very hot water or in
very cold. Better yet is to take pieces
of absorbent cotton, rounded and made
into little pads to fit the eyes, dip
them in ice water and place them
on the lids, changing them as they become hot. After a few minutes of
such treatment the eyes will feel comforted and relieved to a great degree.

Folding Knife Ca.e
Every one does not happen to |x>s*
sea a ease of cutlery, hut most pMplt
like to keep a second set of knives
and forks for special occasions. 1(
care is not taken in storing lhem they
easily become rusty, and the ivory ol
the handles turns a bad color.
A simple little case, which allows
each knife, big or small, to be kepi
separate from its neighbor, can be
easily made at home out of a broad
piece of flannel, serge, or green baize.
Cut the cloth about two feet long,
bind the two sides with braid to match
the color of material, and double one
side over lengthwise ill the edge reaches
to within a few inches of the other sides
and bind them with braid. Then
stitch down the double part at equal
distances, allowing sufficient space between each row for inserting a knife.
In this way you can store any number,
and you will find they will keep in a
perfect condition. The case can be
rolled up and packed away in a very
little space.

Aldermun Smith is not obliged to act us collector for the G. T. P.
But the fuel that a conductor on the G. T.P. will coolly write on
.���ck to deduct a portion and remit it to him, is evidence of where
firm friendship lias.
Perhaps Aldermun Smil h will ulso tell his laboring friends if it is true us alleged
that these men are charged lc a mile to gel up the line in a carriage und 4c u mile
to gel back on a Hut cur to draw their pay. If it is true thut ut Mile 64, Alderman
Smith's firm have a bunklmuse. 20 by 24 in which thirty workmen have to deep.
Whether it is true thut out of their pay ol $2.55 lor 8 1-2 hours, the men hud to
puy at Kiisumkulum 75 centa fssr dinner und $1.00 for supper.
Charity begins ut home. If Alderman Smith is thc friend of lubor he professes
to be, he has umple opportunity to demonstrate it.
What Alderman Mobley Has Done
The delight of one speaker at Mr. Manson's meeting on Saturday at his in-
norance at not knowing what Alderman Mobley has accomplished during his
term of office wus humorous io behold. It reminded one of the pitiful delight
of some bucolic "oldest inhabitant" who boasts he has never seen a railway train.
It would have been but poetic justice had Alderman Mobley when challenged
promptly taken the rest of the gentleman's time in telling the audience of some
of the things he has accomplished.
Here are a few of thejthings he did in addition to his work as police commissioner
and chairman of the Fire Committee:
He hel|ied to give the city an adequule water supply, with pi[>e lines to every
house possible; he gave plunk roadways lo thc outlying parts of the city, grading
improvements in the business section; secured a municipal light and telephone
plant, helped in the drufting of by-luws regululing licenses, hotels, medical health
public moruls, fuel und fond, sewers und traffic. On top of ull this he has consistently aided in the light uguijist the efforts ot thc Grand Trunk to hurt the city's
finances, and to evade u payment of their assessment. A good record for sev n
months.
There are some kinds of ignorunce which are not excusuble. The gentleman
who spoke on Saturduy is an example.
Notes and Comments
Why does not Alderman Smith run in his own ward? Is it because thc machine
ia stronger in Ward One?
When Aldermun Smith told D'Arcy Tate that he would give one-quarter of
his own real estate to get the G. T. P. question settled, he proved his unfitness
to represent the citizens.
Alderman Smith should give a solo on his "boo-hoo" al the at home tonight.
It would require less mental clfort than a speech.

WORKMEN HELD
UP ON RAILWAY
FIFTEEN EMPLOYEES OF FOLEY,
WELCH & STEWART ARE SORE
Beating Their Way on a Flat Car in
a Snowstorm They Were Made
to Pay $2.30 Apiece to the Railway.
���Think It  Unlu.t
There are fifteen pretty sore men in
Prince Rupert today. They ure former
employees of Foley, Welch & Stewart,
who have been working on the railwuy,
and are here to get their pay checks
cashed.
They boarded a worktrain at Mile 54
on Saturday night riding on a Hat
car. A blizzard wus blowing at the
time. At Mcl.eod's Siding the train
wus boarded by Superintendent Dempaey
and Conductor Revill who insisted on
each of the men paying $2.:10 for the
privilege of continuing the journey.
Under compulsion those who had money
paid: those who had not, consented
to have their pay checks on Foley,
Welch & Stewart reduced by $2.30.!
One of the checks so treated was brought
into the Optimist office this morning.
After paying the $2.30, they were
permitted to stand for the remaining
46 miles of the journey in the caboose
of the snow plough. None of the men
ure going buck. Some of them hud
been nine days trumping through the
snow with their pucks from the other
side of Hazelton, before they picked
up the train. They feel sore that after
being taken up the line for lc a mile
to work, they should have to pay 4c
a mile to ride on a flut car in a snowstorm to get to town to draw their liurd
earned puy.
All of the men hud to throw away
their kits. One mun was so overcome
by his struggles through the snow that
he threw away a new suit case, containing
u $25 suit, blankets, boots, underclothing, etc.

Warning
Aldermun Smith suys his chief desire for re-election is that he may have a hand
in settling the 0, T. P. i|ueslion.   He would settle it by handing over the city's
' claim along with his reul estate.
Cheap lalmr is always dear labor.   They city will pay dear for Aldermun
��� Smith's services if il sends him back lo represent lhe city at the settling of the
0, T. P. assessment.
Thc mun who excuses himself from unending to the public service by saying
.hat his time is ull bought and paid for by the contractors for the 0. T. P. is not
l fit represenlutive of the public ut thc 0, T. P. assessment question.   Ratepayers
In* warned.
It wus unfair for Aldermun Hilditch to attack the City Solicitors on trumped
I   ip charges.   Ii was cowardly to do so if he thought they were precluded from
1 X-ply.   And it is meun of him after they have disproved those charges to squeal
jut and cry "politics."   He should take his medicine like a man.
Twice now in the presence of Willium Manson, Alderman Pattullo has chal-
i. enged him to tell what he has done for I'rince Rupert and thc Alderman would
*;  -.ell what Mr. Manson had failed to do.   On neither occasion was the challenge
lOCepted,   None knows better than Mr. Manson that the story of what he failed
[   to do for thc city would fill a big book.
Ii
The alacrity with which Mr. Cuthbert took the plutform on Saturday to
answer Alderman Pattullo's criticisms of thc assessment was nothing to his alacrity
:   in beating il off the platform when he found the Alderman   had the facts ready
j   in his pocket.   His answer "You arc a windbag" was very gratifying to the machine
;   supporters.   Will it be so to thc ratepayers he discriminated against.
Notice to machine candidates. Anyone found giving the old Council credit
for anything they did last year will bc called out of the field by "business associates
in the Kast" und an "independent" candidate will be subslituted. Squure dealt
will not bc tolerated by the machine executive.   Take warning.
The Empire on Mr. Wm. Manson
The Optimist docs not publish this as its own opinion of Mr. Manson. All
thc articles under this heading are taken from the Empire, a journal which today
is nppealing to the electors to return Mr. Manson as Mayor. They were written
seven months ago, before the Empire had its dispute with the city over a printing
account.
It is still the same Empire, und the same Mr. Manson. The paper has not
changed owners or editors; nor has Mr. Manson done anything in the meantime
to merit any change of opinion regarding him.
(From thc Empire of May 18th)
Down with the hotel intimidators. Down with tyranny even against hotel
keepers.   Why not the Munsonites pitch up thc sponge and suve a Waterloo.
When Mr. Munson helped to vote down the Hawthornwaite bill he proved
himself an enemy of labor.
How is it that Mr. Manson hus forgotton to explain those myesleries surrounding the Tsimpseun power charter?
Prince Rupert will never prosper with partizan officials. Rut what else can
we look for with dual representation.
Let the responsibility rest with Mr. Munson who is ulone to blame for tie
shameful non-enforcement of the law.
Mr. Manson has ruled Prince Rupert for two years, and is alone to blame
for the existing conditions.
Only a circus rider cun ride two horses with safety, yet Mr. Manson thinks
he can slruddle-lhe-fence on the temporunce question and thus pull the wool over
the eyes of the church people.
The public are warned to keep sway fntm th.
works while blasts are being fired. Persona pet*
slstlng in approaching after being warned do *
at their own risk.

Defining thc Issues
The Chairman asked Alderman Pat-
hullo to confine himself to  thi-  issuiss
| of ths* campaign.
"So I will," replied the Alderman,
I "but 1 choose to define tor myself what
I these   issues   are."     (Loud   applause.
J He then  told  the  audience that   Mr.!
SeRuin came to his otlice along wilh
.1 compatriot to try  and  ivt   him to
I UN his intluence to get his, Mr. Seguin's
[ti-ntli-r.  accepted   for   a   certain   work
������spin* the fact  that  his  tender  was
[i...: ihe lowest.
Mr. Seguin���"I challenge that statc-
Iment.   I'm not a contractor."
Alderman   Pattullo - "You   are   not
an  honest  one  anyway.     I   told  you
jthat you would get it if your tender
ins lhe lowest."
Another Battle
On catching an interruption from
iV.r. Cuthbert, Mr. Pattullo turned his
Jttack on to him. He indicated the
lleman   and   stated   that   he   was
sponsible for the worst assessment
fcver   made.    (Loud   applause.)     Mr.
Cuthbert resented the statement and
denied it whereupon the Alderman
Invited him to come on the platform
and have it out.
Alderman Pattullo Scores
Amid great excitement Mr. Cuthbert
boarded the platform. Mr. Pattullo
repeated his opinion that the assessment
was outrageous. Mr. Cuthbert demanded figures and nothing loth Alderman
Pattullo produced his authority showing
lhat lots on one side of the boulevard
in Section Eight belonging to private
citizens were assessed at $250 each
whereas the company's property on
the other side c, the boulevard in
Section Nine only bore a $10 assessment.
Mr. Cuthbert -"There is no map of
Section Nine."
Alderman Pattullo-"If there is no
map of the section how did you come
to make an assessment of a lot that did
not exist."
Mr. Cuthbert���"I inquired from the
Land Registry Office but I had no
map.
Alderman Pattullo-"Then if you
inquired how did you come to make thc
asses.-ment you did."
Mr. Cuthbert then declared that there
was no part of Section  Nine private
property.
Alderman   Pattullo
"I   know   that
The section belongs to the company.
The section I am making comparsion
with is Section Eight which is only
across the road."
Mr. Cuthbert Retires
Reading from his authority Alderman
Pattullo said that Block 21, Section
Nine was assessed at $25 while a lot
in Block 34, Section Eight, immediately
across the street was assessed at $100.
Another illustration he gave was in
Block 30, Section Five where a lot
was assessed at $250 against a private
individual whereas in Block 12, Section
Three, adjoining but belonging to the
company a lot was assessed $10. These
figures he defied Mr. Cuthbert to
disprove. (A Voice "That's right."
Mr. Cuthbert retired with the assertion
that he did not use his endeavours to
get a good assessment for the company
and when he had resumed his seal
and heard Alderman Pattullo still quoting evidence against him, he interrupted
with the remark that Mr. Pattullo was
a windbag. Alderman Pattullo defied
anyone to refute the statements he had
made and promised to retire from
the contest it if could be done.
Hilditch on Grading
What Alderman Hilditch called "a
noisy house" greeted him when he
appeared. He remarked that Alderman
Pattullo's claim for support on the
record of the prevous council did not
convince him. There were four me -
ben of the first council .running. Alderman Pattullo and Alderman Mobley,
Alderman Smith and himself. They
represented  two  sides.
While Alderman Hilditch claimed that
the citizens would have endorsed the
scheme of grading Second avenue as
far as from Alderman Lynch's store
to McBride street, he maintained that
thc part beyond Lynch's store they
did not want graded.
A Voice���"We're paying for it though"
"Yes, you are paying for it," replied
Alderman Hilditch, "but you are borrowing our money to pay for it, and
you will know more about how you're
paying for it by next fall." He said
City Solicitor Williams had criticized
him on the previous night on the ground
that he was attacking him from a
party standpoint.    Alderman   Hilditch
declared he could criticize Mr. Williams
as the leader of a party himself.
While the Alderman was speaking
Mr. Naden sent up the question "Will
Alderman Hilditch please state whether
Alderman Pattullo's statements re-gard
ing the assessment of G. T. P. lots is
correct or not?"
After City Solicitor
Alderman Hilditch replied a little
vaguely that he believed some of the
G. T. P. lots were assessed very lightly
and said he wanted to get after Mr.
Williams. Cries of "Answer the question!" arose, and "What about the
assessment?" but Alderman Hilditch
only went on to say that Mr. Williams
was one of the members of a political
party which is going to make a political
machine of Prince Rupert. He didn't
want to play to the gallery about the
electors' roll (A Voice���"Rut you are!")
but if.the City Solicitor had given advice
to the council to make everybody
register their names the result would
have been a clear list.
Alderman Hilditch was going to
refer to "The Famous Liquor Bylaw" when he was stopped by cries
of time. Mr. Williams secured permission to reply to Alderman Hilditch
if the audience so wished." (Cries of
"We do.")
The  Meseenger Boy
Aid. Smith who followed criticised
Aid. Pattullo for saying that he was
not a proper person to entrust with the
city's business. He was not egotistical
enough to set himself up as a judge and
jury to pass judgment upon himself, as
Mr. Pattullo had done. In regard to
the G.T.P. settlement he said he obtained the opinions of a numbe.- of
prominent citizens. He had asked Mr.
Pattullo if he had dona so and he said
he had not. "Who then," asked the
speaker, "represented the people in
that settlement." In regard to financing the city he said Aid. Pattullo had
only acted as a messenger boy between
the bank and the council.
Pattullo's Political Death
In regard to the accusation that he
would not be able to serve the city for
the whole year as he was leaving in
June his plans had since been changed.
It was now certain that he would be in
Prince Rupert for at least another year.*
By that time he expected to see Aid.
Pattullo die a natural political death.'
He said his opposition to the clause in
the Liquor License By-law was because
he thought it unconstitutional. .
Aid. Pattulo promised to show at a
later date how Aid. Smith had approved of every financial trans-iction of the
messenger boy.
Would go on Forever
Editor Newton asked for unlimited
time to address the audience as long aa
they would sit for it. Amid cries of
"go to it," he told of bis strong views
and desire to let others have theirs.
Mr. Newton declared himself for the
larger scale of pay for satisfactory
workmanship. Under the conditions
of outside work in Prince Rupert $3
was not enough. The higher rate
would encourage into the city the class
of workers who would remain and become permanent citizens.
The "sizzling" of Mr. Manson's supporters by their opponents, Mr. Newton had not seen, and he could not
criticise Aid. Mobley's platform because
there was nothing to it he could see.
He defied Aid. Mobley to show anything in his council work to justify hia
his candidature for the  Mayoral chair.
Aid. Mobley stepping forward said
simply that he did not need to brag
about what he had dene. He gave hia
audience credit for sufficient intelligence to see what he had done for
themselves,    (applause).
Mr.  Newton ia Pleaaed
Up got Mr. Newton again. "That
is exactly where I wanted to catch Mr.
Mobley." he said, "I gave him the opportunity to tell you what he has done
and he has told you nothing."
Mr. Newton extolled Mr. Manson.
"You've changed your mind since
last fall," cried a voice, and Mr. Newton went on to explain that he had lost
faith in the civic administration.
The Fire Engine
He criticised the automobile Fire Engine.
"What would happen to many of
you," he cried, "if a big fire swept the
town?"

SEWERS FOR REST OF CITY
Trunk Sewer Scheme Wanted Draft.*
ed Early
In a report of the streets committee
at Friday's council the city engineer's
recently prepared sewer scheme was
ruled too costly meantime, and it was
suggested that a new scheme be prepared draining only from subgrade.
More urgently important, said the
report, is the scheme for trunk sewers
only throughout the whole city which
should be first submitted to the council.

In honor of the eventful day of
graduation from a cooking school she
got up a little spread.
"Yes, I've got the loveliest diploma!"
cried the fair graduate. "It's on sheep-
shin parchment with a big gold seal.
I cooked this dish you are eating. Now,
just guess what it is."
"Is it���er���" the young cynic paused
impressively, "is it the diploma, Peggy?"
Eve had just tied a garland of maple
leaves about her ankles.
"What on earth are you up to, my
love?" asked Adam.
"I am tyring on my new hobble-skirt,
sweetheart," returned the partner of his
joys with a sweet smile.
Towards the close of a recent lawsuit
in Massachusetts, the wife of an eminent Harvard professor arose and with a
flaming face timidly addressed the court:
"Your honor," said she, "if I told you
I had made an error in my testimony,
would it vitiate all I have said?"
Instantly the lawyers for each side
stin-ed themselves in excitement, while
his Honor gravely regarded her.
"Well, madam," said the court, after a
pause, "that depends entirely on the
nature of your error. What was it,
please?"
"Why, you see," answered the lady,
more and more red and embarrassed, "I
told the clerk I was thirty-eight. I was
so flustered, you know, that when he
asked my age I inadvertently gave him
my bust measurement."

To the Electors of Ward Two
Ladies and Gentlemen, - In re-
aponse to a request from a number of
electors I have decided to offer myself
as an independent candidate for Alderman for Ward 2. I take the opportunity of the announcement to solicit your
support, and promise if elected to give
you my best services in the council-.
Yours truly,
P. I. PALMER.

Tenderers must supply all materials. 4-8
rear.
"When it comes you'll need a costly
expert to run it," continued the speaker.
"Give Pattullo the job," shouted
some of the crowd.
Mr. Newton went on to say that
common horse sense was required in
the selection of automobiles for Prince
Rupert.
Mobley'a Stand���and Manson's
At this point cries of "Time!" interrupted the speaker who said he had no
intention of sitting down yet. He did
not think they wanted him to sit down
or he would't need to be asked twice;
and went on to talk of the Licensing
question, saying there would have been
no need for Scott Act agitation if the
police commissioners had enforced the
law.
Mr.   Newton   declared   that  if the
electors wanted  a good  business head
for Mayor, Mr. Manson was the finest
thing in this line in the field.
A New Candidate
A new candidate in the person of
P. I. Palmer was introduced. He
briefly announced himself as strictly
independent with no party affiliation
whatever. He had supported Mr. Man-
son last time and he was going to do so
again. Regarding the labor question
he would not make any announcement
beyond saying that he was open to
consider any proposition brought to him
in the proper way.
"Oh you sidestepper" was the amusing retort of someone in the hall.
Married Versus Single
D. W. Morrissey spoke briefly on the
labor issue, saying that Mr. Newton's
idea practically duplicated his own. Me
was strongly in favor of the establishment of a free employment agency. In
regard to wages he discriminated between married and single men. The
married men who intended to live in
the city and bring up their families
should get the big money but the single
ones should not.
Another Tiff
Mr. W. H. Montgomery the labor
candidate received a rather mixed reception on rising to suuport Aid. Mobley. He did not go far before falling
foul of a man in the audience. He
knew him he said and had quit him on
actountofhis disreputable character.
He was a caterer down the tenderloin.
This brought about a storm of protest
and Mr. Montgomery gave way to Mr.
Gosden, the person reflected upon.
Mr. Gosden came upon the stage and
admitted that he made his living down
the dead line by catering. He did not
attempt to excuse himself; he justified
himself. The dead line was as much a
part of the social fabric as any other
part, and surely it was no sin to serve
meals to the people who came in need
of them. The speech made a splendid
effect.
Mr. Williams Explains
Mr. Williams of the city solicitors
firm then stepped upon the platform to
refute the personal charges made
against the firm. His explanation of
how the eight hour clause came to be
inserted and altered brought Aid. Hilditch to his feet protesting. The Aid.
had claimed that the clause was draft-
by the Council themselves. Mr. Williams pointed out that he was present
in Council at the time and drafted the
clause. It was the privilege of the
Council to dictate the terms of their
clauses. If it was not, what was the
use of having a council at all. All the
city solicitors had to do was to put
their wishes into legal shape. In the
one instance Alderman Hilditch blamed
them for not framing a clause, and in
the case of the Liquor License By-law
he blamed them for doing it. What
they did in both cases was to obey the
Council's instructions.
The meeting broke up near midnight
with hearty cheers for Mr. Manson.
SERGEANT REGAN
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
In denying the charges of graft,
Sergeant Regan accused Mr. L. Patmore
of trying to get him to swear in a trial
before Judge Young that a client
named Williams accused of incendiarism, was cra7.y. He said Mr. Patmore
represented that it would increase his
reputation to get Williams off, and offered him $500 to give the evidence.
He said that affidavits were made by
himself and Constable McEwen about
the aflair at the time.
Mr. Patmore heatedly denied the
charge, and threatened to take proceedings against anyone reporting the
accusation.
D. Helberg, William White, Ed.
O'Shaugnessy and other who were said
to have given Regan money denied
on oath having done so. Jas. Carriggee
said Regan even had refused to accept
a free supper. He had heard that the
whole thing was u "political frame up."
