Mayor Instructs Police Chief to Clean Out All Gamblers, Tinhorns, Blind-Pigs and Crib Keepers���
Will Vote Special Fund for Getting
appointments     WINNIPEG IS VISITED
Today Mnyor Manson and his new
I police commission consisting of Alderman Kirkpatrick and M. M. Stephens'
rioso appointment has just been confirmed by wire from Victoria, put
themselves on record as in aupport of
the vigorous enforcement of law in
Princo Rupert.
In his remarks lhe Mayor said thut
"There it* in the city ut present a class
of undeairablea nieb us gumblers, tinhorns, Wind pigs, and crib keepers
I desire that the Chief of Police should
give some guarantee that these people
should l>e cleaned out of Prince Rupert"
Chiel McCarvell said that given a
reuonable length of time, and a working
fund, he would guuruntee to clear out
the undesirables aa quickly as any
experienced officer possibly could.
Commissioner Stephens wanted a
jpecit'i.d tine mentioned, but thii
the Chief said wus not possible owing
to thc complications in getting substantial evidence against the offenders.
He stau*d some of the difficulties principally tbe fact that in such a small
town "spotters" are themselves speedily-
spotted by those they are out to spot.
It has been decided by the Commission that the Chief is to have a free
hand, that he is to choose the best
men available for his staff, and thut
the city council is to be approached
with a view to applying u sum of $100
per month to the needs of the Police
Chief in enforcing the law aguinsl the
undesirable class.
Undesirables arriving from the north
will be warned to set off by the next
steumer if they land here. This is being
done, but owing to the ar-'vals of steamers at all odd hours undesirables occasionally land.
Copies of the Liquor By-law and other
by-laws affecting the moral regime
of the city must be obtained by all
concerned and the city clerk is to prepare copies for those who apply. They
will be supplied in the meantime free
of charge.

Threatened Whole District
For a time it seemed as if the whol<
of the wholesale district wus doomed

undiscovered cause in the Kelly Building
on Bannatyne avenue, and quickly
spread, although the firemen were
early on the scene.

Having Friendly Bout on Third
Floor of Hotel When Slip Causes
Them to Shoot Out the Window
to the Street Below.
(Special to the Optimist)
Seattle, Jan. 17. A friendly bout
which was engaged in today by John
Anderson, proprietor of a saloon, and
Ben Christensen, the bartender, ended
fatally for both parties. They were
wrestling in a room situated on the third
storey of the lxixington Hotel when
one of them slipped and they both
crashed through the window on to the
street below. They were both instantly killed. Both men had been
in the habit of fooling with one another
at wrestling and the bout which Imd
the disastrous termination was but
one of their almost daily stunts. The
men were the best of friends. The
tragic occurrence has evoked the deepest
sympathy of their friends of whom
there are many.

three negtoes were taken from thc
local jail and lynched. Only two of
the bodies have been found. The
police are searching for the third. One
of them was charged with murdering
a negress. One of the others was
charged with assualting a white woman.
All three were awaiting trial.
Thc |iopulace were greatly incensed
at the deeds of the negroes and would
not wait for them to be brought lo
justice. They rushed the jail when
it was not sufficiently protected, dragged
forth their victims and lynched them.

Names of Property Owners Are Alleged to Have Been Taken From
Assessment Roll Instead of From
Registrar's Office.
Fear of Personal Violence Not Sufficient  Excuse
For carrying a concealed pistol Delmont Zarelli was today fined $6 and
costs, and thc weapon was confiscated.
Magistrate Carss said that while he
felt that Zarelli was really in fear of
personal violence, still that was no
excuse for all and sundry carrying
weapons, and he had therefore to inflict the minimum fine.
The maximum penalty is $26 and
costs and this will be enforced stringently
says Magistrate Carss, upon the offenders caught.
ISpecial to the Optimist)
Victoria, Jan. 17.-A sensation has
been caused in this city through the
presentation of a petition asking that
the recent elections be declared null
and void. The reason behind the
petition is hat the voters' lift was
not compiled according to law. The
names of the property owners are
alleged to have been taken from the
property assessment roll instead of
from the Regis!rur's oflice, The | etition
hus been served upon the city clerk.
The utmost anxiety is being displayed

Furnishing Your Library
"Let us consider the bookshelves lirst
of all," says Lucy Abbot Throop in
Woman's Home Companion, "for, since
the room is to be a permanent library,
there should be permanent bookshelves.
They should vary in height, according
to the size of the room, and they should
never be higher than can be easily
reached. If the room is small, they
ought not to be higher than four or
four and one-half feet, or they will
make the room seem smaller than it
is. They may line the room entirely
or bc placed as the size of the room
demands or special need dictates. Take
care that you do not get them carefully-
built in, and then discover that the door
knocks ugainst them as it opens.
"Built-in bookcases should have movable shelves, for the obvious reason
that ull books are not the same height
and it is often convenient to change
them about. If the home carpenter is
not equal tn fitting adjustable shelves,
have the lower shelves farther apart,
for there is where the'largest and heaviest books should be put to keep the
feeling of weight near the floor. If
there is a fireplace, with a niche at
each side, build shelves on each side
of it. Build them on each side of the
window, and place a window seat
between. If there are two windows
near together, place a desk with shelves
over it between them und bookcuses
on each side of the windows with window-
scats between. Have the cuses turn
the corners of the room wherever
possible, for this is usually good in
"Do not crowd your library walls
with pictures unless you should have
a set of fine prinls or something quite
as exceptional. There should be an
air of dignity and quiet about all libraries, whether lurge or small, and
this is attained by the use of rcstf 1
colors ubd keeping uwuy from confusion of the eye with pictures und
ornaments. Have a pottery bowl or
vase for flowers.a plaster cust of which
you are particularly fond, and u piece
or two of good metal work, either brass
or copper. A map of the world and a
globe are valuable aids for reference,
and should be in every library."

A business girl who wished to brew
an occasional cup of tea in her own

with the treadle removed. The top of
the table, covered with asbestos, accommodated u small gas stove. The

Learn to Eat All Foods
Indulgence in eccentricities of taste
is a course which tends to inconvenience and unnoy others. The person
who cannot cut this or that, who will
not try unfamiliur dishes because she
is not sure she would Ike them, who
must have certain urticles of food or
go hungry, has something yet to learn
in the way of table manners. She
had better cat at home until she has
acquired more adaptability. For such
bad manners as these parents are sometimes at fault because they have allowed their children to foster the foolish
notion that they cannot eat special
It is a usual thing for a child to have
a distaste to certain new articles of
food, but not on this account should he
be excused from eating them if they
are items generally served in the ordinary bill of fare. As, fcr instance, soup
and fish, for both of which 1 have
known children to declare dislike. Yet
if they arc obliged to eat a little of
cither one or of any other food they
are likely to meet at the family table,
the aversion may in time be overcome
and the child may end by developing
a distinct fondness for the food he
once condemned.

Accused la Madame Laloise Whose
Panacea Is Simply "A Laying-on of
Hands"���She Can Project Her
Paris, Ja . 14.���A woman has been
brought before the courts, accused of
unlawful practice of medicire, and
the case is attracting considerable interest. One of the principal independent wit esses was a celebrated doctor
k own by the name of "Th Mage
Papus," who, besides his orthodox
practice, is much consulte by believers in spiritualism, of which science
he is a leading fashionable exponent.
The accused, Mme. Lalose, a small
but vivacious person, p-ofessed to
heal all manner of maladies by the
simple laying-on of hands, and the
wit' sses she brought, and who came
of their own nccord, declared that she
ositively performed "miracles." She
merely had to say to the deaf "hear,"
and cured the blind und ihe paralytic
at a distance. The presiding judge
remarked that he was something like
St. Thomas, and there was a genera!
disposition to mirth in the court.
This feeling, however, yielded to
astonishment as the roll of witnesses
was called. The police com ciss ry
of Asnieres, clothed with all the prestige of oflice, testified thit his wife
hud long suffered from an immovable
stiff arm. She hid been treated by
the best know i doctors, whose names
created an impressirn, being household words for skill. Finally she went
:o M e. L lose, who only touched
her. In the evening sh began to
move her arm and the nex, day was
quite cured. Another patient waa
ronounced by the highest authorities
to be hopelessly insane. A few passes
over her torch ad were enough, it wbs
said, to bri:.g back her reason.
The most impressive evidence was
that of the Mage I* p s, who said
that in old times Kg ptian priests
and Hebrew prophets healed the sick
and th t for twenty years e had in
vain been seeking the secret of their
To the ques ion s to whether Mme.
Lalose was a hypnotist, Dr. Papus
answered no because hypnotism was
a well known s ience, but a sludy of
a force n t yet defined. "With Mme.
Lalose we are in another domain
in thai of the mysterious and   nknown."

Wireless Station to Be Constructed
on Virago Sound.
(From our Masset correspondent)
The appropriation of $5,000, which
appears in the estimates of the Dominion
House, for the construction of B wharf
on Massett Inlet, meets with the approval of the settlers who appreciate
the interest taken in the welfare of the
community by the representative for
the District.
The placing of lights at the entrance
to Massett Inlet is absolutely noeessury.
The attention of the Marine and Fisheries Department is called to the requirements of those engaged in navigating the waters, where no lighthouses
or buoys have yet been placed. Vessel*
cannot enter or leave the Inlet, after
night, and the traffic to and from
Graham Island, in the future, will call
for better harbor facilities.

The Financial Outlook for 1911
Writing in the Toronto Globe's annual financial survey for 1911, Lord Stra-
thcona warns western municipalities against the danger of leaving too long.appli-
calions for loans for improvements. He points out that notwithstanding the
uniteadying effect of the elections on the markets, and the dear money of the
early fall, that Canadian municipal issues showed themselves to be well favored
by the British investor.
Thc extent of John Bull's long stocking, when it comes to dipping down for
loans for other countries, is indicated by Sir Edgar S|>eyer who computes that
it reached the extent of $1)40,000,000 in 1910. Some of this of course came into
London from continental agencies, but the net sum subscribed by British investors
was not less than $750,000,000. Of this some $200,000,000 found its way to Canada.
As regards the outlook for 1911, Sir K.dgar thinks the conditions are all favorable *o active trade, and that it is probable the world's commerce will exceed all
previous totals. The factors mainly responsible for the favorable outlook are
good credit and a large gold production. The manner in which the borrowing
countries have increased their agricultural and mineral output has brought about
a feeling of confidence, while the increasing gold output is enabling those countries
which need gold to obtain ample for their reserves. Argentina has already a gold
reserve against ils note issue of $200,000,000, while Brazil which at one time had
a most depreciated note issue, has now accumulated a gold reserve of $100,000,000.
Sir Edgar points out that the willingness of Great Britain to lend makes
it all the more incumbent on Canadians to permit nothing which in any wuy could
impair the confidence and readiness of the British investor to send his money to
Canada. Canada should appreciate the paramount necessity of offering only-
such securities in the home market as are absolutely good, for the margin which
separates caution from fear is a very narrow one.

American Gold in British Elections
The aftermath of libel actions threatened by British peers against their

Notes and Comments
Up-to the time of going to press, the member for Skeena has not yet reported
for service at the legislature.
The electors ought to organize a search party or elect another man at the
nex' provincial election.
Nothing more sublime has been witnessed than the way in which the member
for Skeena stood ready at duty's call to sacrifice the interests of the constituency
he loves so well.
There is only one way in which the Premier can make amends and help his
trusty follower out. He should change the seat of government from Victoria
to I'rince Kupert.
It was very fitting of Alderman Smith lo intimate that he will bring in the
motion to cut thc city solicitors' salaries. The union musicians at Alderman
Smith's theatre who were cut down from the union rate of $35 a week to $21 will
appreciate the point.   Consistency is a gem.

In Sonorous Phrase and Carefully
Selected Words Prince Rupert's
Editor Alderman Introduces Numerous Enquiries-at New   Counci'
"Words, words, words!"  - Hamlet.
"Words  without  thoughts  never  to
heaven goP'���Macbeth.
Was it lo heaven, however, that
Mayor Manson and the other members
of the new city council of P.ince
Rupert mental y consigned the words,
words, words of Herman Newton at
the lirst business meeting of the council
last night?
It was the fatal mention of "ciiquir*
irs" that did it. Alderman Newton is
of an enquiring turn of mind. He asked
about the electric light plant. He
wanted to know how the hydrants were
resisting the frost. He wondered if
the mains were frozen. He enquired
about thi> new auto fire engine. He
was concerned about the placing of
light (idles on Third avenue. He wants
more chairs purchased for the City
Hall so that the crowds of citizens
attracted by his eloquence may go to
sleep in comfort during I is spoo-hi-s in
Thi* la��t suggestion appealed to the
council themselves and more comfortable chairs may be purchased for
the aldermen now they know what.
t hi y are up against w hen Alderman
Newton gets going.
Brielly Alderman Newton's contribution to the new council's first meeting
wus as follows: First, he wants thc
electric i -hi plant hurried up. Second, i
he wants the order for the auto lire
engine cancelled. bird, he want the
fire hydrants kept in working order
during frost. Fourth, he wants the
electric light poles put in the lanes
and not on Third avenue. Fifth, he
wants the conditions at the G. T. P.
Hospital looked into for the benefit
of the Prince Rupert Industrial Association.
On this latter point Alderman Newton
had a cutting a yard long from the
Empire, and was threatening to read it,
when Mayor Manson hurriedly awoke
to the danger, and said firmly that
while communications sent properly
through the city clerk to the council
would have attention, they could not
pay attention to grievances aired only
in the newspapers. So Alderman Newton agreed, and held his peace, but
said he had a whole lot more enquiries

Maude���Jack vows that, he would

Ethel���He called on you last night as
I usual?
Maude���Not last night: he telephoned
me that it was raining too hard.
"Little boy, don't you think you are
in great danger on that thin ice?"
"How sir?"
"Well, you might break through and
I get wet, and even if you don't break
. through your parents would undoubtedly
] punish you severely if they knew you
j went on the pond."
"You ain't no guesser, mister; if I
break through an' get wet I'll be a hero
at home an' get all the sypmathy an'
good things in the house."
"Why are you sobbing, my little man?"
"My pa's a millionaire philanthropist."
"Well, well!    That's nothing to cry
about, is it?"
"It ain't, ain't it? He's just promised
to give me $5 to spend for Christmas
providing I raise a similar amount."
The subject of conversation between
the last two sportsmen left up at night
in thc smoking-room after a hard day's
shooting was the wonderful scent of
"Mine is a marvel. Not long ago I
went motoring, far from home. My
pointer, although chained up, worked
himself out of his collar and found me
two hours sftcrward. What d'ye think
of that?"
"I think you ought to have a bath."
Mrs. Slowboy���How is my son getting along at school, professor?
Professor���I have great hopes of him,
madam great hopes. He's the laziest
boy I ever saw.
Mrs. Slowboy���Then why do you say
you have great hopes of him?
Professor���Because if he ever begins
to study he's too lazy to stop.

On the ground that there was not
sufficient evidence to prove that Ed.
O'Shaughnessy was actually running
the alleged gaming house at the Terminal
City Club, Magistrate Carss finally
dismissed the charge against O'Shaughnessy. The Magistrate observed that
he thought there was evidence to
support thc statement that games of
chance had been played there, but
after some arguments had b -en put
forward by thc lawyers���W. E. Fisher,
for the defence, ami A. Manson for
the prosecution���he dismissed the case

A fine example of how to railroad a
by-law   through,   was   given   at   last
night's   city   council   when   Alderman
Kirkpatrick introduced the   by-law to:
raise   $125,000   for   current   expenses
for  the municipal  year.    The  by-law
passed its  first,  and second readings,!
was considered in committee us a whole,
and passed its third reading in about
twenty   minutes.     Its   final   adoption I
will take place at next meeting.
Aldermun Pattulio thought that until
the financial statement appeared and
they saw how they stood it was early
enough to set the sum of $125,000 for
the by-law.
The Mayor remarked that the sum
was well within the anticipated assessment of $18:1,000 D which it was based,
and besides .1 the money need not
be borrowed at once.
"That $183,000 assessment," said
Alderman Pattullo, "is practically a
fictitious amount as everybody knows.
It would be better to wait for the
It was pointed out by Alderman
Pattullo that to place the figure too
high was to disturb the confidence of
financial institutions in the city's financial ronduct, and this he thought should
be guarded against. He was opposed
tn the passing of the amount clause
in the by-law which, however, wnet
through as stated.
Both  Alderman  Pattullo and  Alder-
A Programme of Music Was Followed by a Series of Gaines in Which

Frienda Made.
The Baptist church was last night
the seine of a pretty function. The
Rev. Mr. McLeod presided over a social
gathering, the purpose of which was
the renewing of old acquaintances and
the making of new ones. A proper
disregard for frigid etiquette and an
assumption of youthful abandon conspired most successfully to have the
objects of the function realized, so
that the new comrades parted like
the members of one family.
The early portion of the evening was
devoted to thc tendering of a musical
programme. The principals who contributed were Miss C. Barker, violin
soloist; Mr. J, Davey, tenor; Little
Miss Grey, who rendered two dainty
recitations delightfully; and Mr. Miller,
cornet soloist. The latter part of the
evening was taken up with a series of
bright games after which supper was
served. The whole ceremony was
characterized by a sincere good fellowship and was greatly appreciated by all
The proceedings closed with the singing
of the beautiful hymn "God be With
You Till We Meet Again."
