IUARANTINE BOAT EVELYN
REACHES PRINCE RUPERT
-���roves Herself a Dainty and Commodious Craft Carrying All the Latest Improvements for Lighting
and Generating���Description of Launch
The Evelyn has arrived.   She reached
i'rince Rupert last night after an eight
ays trip through stormy weather and
i today holding a reception over at
he G. T. P. wharf where she is anchored
���Jong-side of the G. T. P. boat the Ka
This beautifully proportioned gasoline
aunch built at the instigation of the
Dominion Government for quarantine
lurposes in the North Pacific waters
ori-shadows the enormous traffic which
i the near future will tap Print* Rupert
nd the surrounding district.
A Beautiful Craft
Thc Evelyn which is designed on the
nost modern lines was built in Victoria
|��>- the Hinton Electric Company. She
fifty feet long with a beam of eleven
et. She is equipped with the Eastern
Jtundanl gusoline engine with a twenty-
ve horse power capacity. The engine
om or pilot house which is located
the fore end of the boat is fitted up
rith thc latest electrical devices in-
^uding a poweful searchlight. In
ommon with thc most up to date
rpes of engines the Evelyn carries two
orage batteries and can therefore
jnsT.its- her own electricity.
Dr. T'emayne Pleased
The engine house is protected with a
[lasa covering, and in rough weather
ths- boat can be steered from below as
is equipped with a double steering
gear, one above deck and one below.
Behind the engine house is situated the
lanctum of the doctor which is fitted
up with  an eye both  to  utility  and
auty. Dr. Tremayne was down
at the wharf this morning looking her
over and he expressed himself as well
satisfied with the craft placed at his
disposal in connection with the Digby
Nlund Quarantine. Every comfort and
accommodation is provided for with
a liberality that seems altogether out
ot proportion to the space at command.
All the water conveniences are run by
gravity and accordingly a ready flow is
assured. She carries one boat and
the requisite number of life belts.
Taken all over she is one of the
daintiest boats of the kind that have
shoved their prow into Prince Rupert
harbor for a long time. While she
can accommodate half a dozen men
two are sufficient to man her.
Being excessively light she did not
travel during the nights on her passage
up, and in consequence of the rough
weather experienced had to lay up for
two days before venturing to cross the
Sound. Captain Butterfield brought her
up. She is now being looked after by
Captain Gus Hansen who will operate
her when her real duties begin.
FOREIGN FLEET CAUSES ALARM
By Manoevring Off North Coast of
Australia
(Special to the Optimist)
Melbourne, Dec. 6.���Reports reaching
here that a fleet of foreign battleships
has been seen conducting manoeuvres
apparently with hostile intent off the
north coast of Australia, are causing
considerable alarm in the city. It has
not been ascertained yet to which
nationality the war vessels seen belong,
nor how many comprise the fleet.

(Special to the Optimist)
London, Dec. 6.���Although the result
of the second day's polling leaves the
Radical coalition with only one Beat
more than the Unionists, there is satisfaction among the Liberal ranks, and the
betting at Lloyds indicates that a large
Liberal majority is expected.
Standing of Parties
The Government coalition is now
Liberals 87, Labor 14, Nationalists 16,
making a total of 117 seats. The Unionists have carried 116 seats. Floods and
heavy storms throughout the country

NO WORD YET OF
GEO. McKENZlE
FEARED   HE   FELL   OFF   WHARF
AND  IS DROWNED
Well Known Man About Town Has
Been Misting for Nearly Two
Week*���Waa Last Seen at Night
Near the Wharf.
No new light has yet been shed upon
thc mysterious disappearance of George
McKenzie who slipped out of visible
existence nearly a fortnight ago when
he was supposed to be making for the
camp where he was known to be working. Since that time no trace of him
-has been found by the many anxious
inquirers interested in his welfare.
The last that was seen of him was in
the G. T. P. Inn where he was observed
in friendly conversation with another
man.
Which way he took to reach the
camp is not known but it is certain
that he did not reach it. Had he taken
the road and been seized by sudden
illness it is almost certain that his body
would have been recovered long ere
this, but on the other hand if he took
the waterfront route it is possible that
| he fell over into the  water  and  was
drowned,   the  tide  carrying  his  body
out of the harbor to the open sea.
McKenzie was a well known man
about town and it would not be possible
for him to be alive and remain unidentified. He was in the employ
of Messrs. Rosa & McC'oll, contractors.
TWO MILLION  ACRES OF  LAND
To be Selected for Government Grant
Coqultlam Put Forward
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, Dec. 6.���Provision for an
extension of time in reference to the
University Aid Act is included in the
Government Program. The object in
view is to enable thc Government to
make their selection of two million
acres for the land grant. A deputation
from the Coquitlam district waited
upon the executive today urging the
suitability for the site of this grant.
WILL BE AT YALE
Site Selected for Dominion Govern,
ment Demonstration Orchards
Victoria, Dec. 6.���The government
officials appointed to make the selection
of a site for the Provincial government
demonstration orchards have decided
upon Yale as the most suitable spot for
thc orchards.
MORE LUMBER FOR
EXTENDING DOCKS
RUPERT   CITY   ARRIVES   WITH
HALF MILLION FEET OF LUMBER
Some of It Will be Used in Completing the Banking North of Centre
Street and the Remainder for the
New Tie Dock.
That the Grand Trunk authorities
do not intend to let the winter interiors'
with their operations in regard to tho
work along the waterfront is made
manifest by the arrival of the Rupert
City which arrived last night from
Bellingham with a cargo of nearly 600,000
feet of dressed lumber.
A quantity of lumber was taken off
the ship this forenoon and will be
utilized for the completion of the banking
to the north of Center street. The
remainder will be required for the work
on the new tie dock.
Besides lumber the vessel carried
about nine hundred tons of coal, most
of which also was for the Grand Trunk
Pacific, the subsidiary orders being for
Messrs. Foley, Welch & Stewart and the
Premier hotel
Joe Martin In
Among the victorious Canadians are
Joe Martin who got in for East Pancraa
after a hard struggle, and llamar
Greenwood who was elected for Sunderland.
Henry Vivian la Out
Henry Vivian, member for Birkenhead in.the Liberal interest, who recently
made an extensive tour of Canada is
among the fallen. He was defeated by
his Unionist opponent in Birkenhead.
Look For a Slaughter
Among the seats contested yesterday
were a large number of th* ssountry
constituencies where the Conservative
interests are very strong. From now oa
the Liberals expect to steadily pile
up a definite majority.

Lord Kitchener and Marriage
There has been a good deal of gossip
at one time and another as to Lord
Kitchener's views on marriage for soldiers. He would not have a married
officer on his staff in Egypt, but the
fact that he is to be best man to his
friend Gen. Sir Archibald Hunter, seems
to prove that his objections are not insuperable. Lord Kitchener is 60 years
of age and the circumstances of his
still being a bachelor has led a lot of
people to call him a woman hater.
He himself tells the story of an encounter which he once had with a
young lady. It was in India, at a small
hill station. A tennis party had been
arranged al which practically all the
officers hoped to play. Then to the
general consternation Lord Kitchener
ordered a parade of the entire garrison
on the very day appointed for the tennis. "Have you forgotten the tennis
party? the young lady asked him.
"Not in the least," was the grim reply.
"Well, then," said the girl, in extreme
indignation "I think you're a perfect
beast."
Talking For H.alth
London, Nov, 25.���Why are people
who are so much alone apt to get depressed and sad? Simply because they
don't talk enough.
"The more you talk���in reason, of
course���the better, and, therefore, the
more cheerful you will be," said a
dootor who has studied the subject.
"You can see this in everyday life.
The cheerful, hail-fellow-well-met man is
the man who talks and goes on talking.
Don't be misled by the idea tin** people
talk because they are cheerful. They are
cheerful becasusc they talk.
"The reason is simple enough. The
talking apparatus is, of course, connected with the brain. When you talk
you stir up, by means of the connecting
nerves, the blood vessels of the brain,
which, consequently, demand more blood.
"Fresh blood is accordingly drawn
in and the circulation stimulated and
more blood ia created.
"This necessarily makes for fitness
and cheerfulness. Of course, the cheerfulness created by talk reacts and makes
you want to talk more. But the cheerfulness is created by talk.
"An   interesting   case   in   this   con
nection came under my notice only the
other day. A rather sensitive, excitable
man was doing very hard work in an
oflice, and began to 'feel' his work. He
got worse and came to me.
"There was nothing the matter with
him but so-called overwork. Now,
overwork never killed anyone yet���
unless there has been worry with it,
but there appeared to be no worry in
this case.
"I confess I was slightly puzzled.
I made the man come and see me in
the evenings and talk over the things
that interested him. I noticed that
he was always fitter after a good talk.
"I asked him if there was any job
in his oilice to which he might change.
He said there was. I happened to know-
that the job in question involved a great
deal of talking, giving orders, discussing
plans, etc.
"He tried it, and, though he works
actually harder than he did before, he
is a different man, and perfectly cheerful.
"People who live much by themselves
and have no one to talk to should read
aloud as dramatically as possible.
"Talk to yourself in your bath in
the morning. You can talk more loudly
then, for the splashing will prevent
people thinking you a lunatic at large!
"You can also sing and whistle,
things very good for the lungs and
circulation.
"But take every opportunity of
talking to yourself in private or to your
friends, particularly in the cold, depressing days of winter. It wil make
you fit, and keep you warm and cheerful."
A leader of the London Suffragettes
has conceived an original and daring
scheme to bring Parliament to terms.
The visiting squadron of the American
fleet is anchored within a short distance of the Parliament buildings.
During the day the majority of the
officers and crews are on shore leave,
and the conspiracy is for the suffragettes
to seize the men-of-war, "man" the
guns and turn them on the Parliament
buildings. If their request is not granted
forthwith the bombardment will proceed.
Hamilton women are a unit in denouncing the chief of police of that
city as a "mean old thing." The officers have received orders to enforce
the ordinance prohibiting loitering on
assembling in groups on the streets.
And this, too, when the shop windows
are gay with holiday attractions. There
are breakers ahead for somebody.
THE COOK'S CORNER
Cornmeal Pudding
Rub the sides and bottom of a saucepan with butter, and when the butter
has melted pour in half a cupful Of
boiling water, then a quart of milk.
When this comes to a boil sift in gradually a pint of cornmeal, stirring all
the time. Add half a teaspoonful of
salt and put the mush aside to cool.
When cold stir in half a pint of New
Orleans molasses and a quart of cold
milk. Pour into a well buttered and
very deep pudding dish, cover with a
plate, and bake in a slow oven for
eight hours. It may be put in during
the afternoon and allowed to bake all
night if desired.
Bread and Nut Cutlets
Chop together or run through a
meat grinder two cupfuls of bread
crumbs and one cupful of shelled walnuts. Mix in a tablespoonful of minced
onion and a small piece of butter. Melt
in  a  hot  saucepan  a  teaspoonful  of

Nothing has been heard of George
Mackenzie, an employee of Messrs Ross
and McColl, for over a week. It is
feared he has gone over the wharf side,
and been drowned in the darkness.
Intending to purchase some tobacco
he came into town from camp a week
ago lust Thursday night. Along with a
friend of his named Jones he was seen
chatting in the neighborhood of the
G. T. P. Inn the same night. From
that time, however, his disappearance
has been complete. Not a sign of him
has been seen since he parted with Jones
who understood Mackenzie was to go
straight back to camp.
Messrs. Ross and McColl would be
glad if anyone in town can give an
information that might lead to the
discovery of the missing man.

MR. MANSON, THE ���'EMPIRE" AND THE QUEEN
CHARLOTTE  ISLANDERS
It will be poor comfort to those indignant citizens of Queen Charlotte Islands
to read in the press of the promises of Mr. William Manson, M. P. P. As a maker
of promises he ha* acquired a reputation. .
How often has he come out with that pompous phrase, "The measure that
I shall present to the House will have for its object," etc. Is there anyone with
a grievance anywhere, let him take it to Mr. Manson. He will promise to do something to relieve it.
As a smooth spoken maker of promises Mr. Manson is only equalled by his
colleague, Hon. Thomas Taylor, who when he visited the Queen Charlotte Islands,
promised to look into a grievous piece of legislation. It was not till some time
later, that the indignant Islanders learned that Hon. Thomas Taylor was the
author of the piece of legislation that he promised to "look into."
Less than a year ago Mr. Man-son made a trip up the Skeena. From point
to point as he journeyed, he was met by deputations of citizens with grievances.
To every one he made a promise. There w ��s nothing the member was not ready-
to promise
When the Queen Charlotte Islanders reflect on the long list of unfulfilled
promises made on that Skeena trip, they will be the more indignant at the easy
nonchalance with which the member meets their grievance with another promise.
This as the Empire points out is the chief reason why Mr. Manson is utterly
unfit to become Mayor of Prince Rupert.   The Empire says:
"One of the strongest reasons why Mr. Manson should not be elected
Mayor of Prince Rupert is on account ol his want of lirmness, and the necessary
ginger to maintain the rights of those whom he represents."
This hits off Mr. Manson's failing with a truth born of an intimate knowledge
of the subject.
Continuing, the Empire says:
"This was fully demonstrated during the late session of the Legislature.
He then knew what deep interest the citizens of Prince Rupert had centered
in the formation of what they believed to be a model city charter, yet he
lacked the courage to fight for these principles."
This lack of courage, which the Empire declares is a prominent characteristic
of M*-. Manson, is probably the reason why he has such a long record of unfulfilled
promises. Doubtless he means well when he makes the promises, but his courage
leaks out of his boots when he faces tbe House, or comes within the magnetic glance
of Hon. Mr McBride the member for the Grand Trunk Pacific.
To the Queen Charlotte Islanders, we commend the advice which the Empire
has given to the citizens of Prince Rupert in regard to the Mayoralty contest.
"When Mr. Manson failed to fight against those evils, what is the use
of electing him as Mayor.   Undoubtedly he has proven quite unequal to so
onerous a task."
The Queen Charlotte Islanders should remember the Empire's advice when
the nevt provincial elections come round.

With anxious concern that was really
charming, Aid. Hilditch last night
enquired after the electric light plant.
Not for himself -oh, no! Far be it
from Aid. Hilditch to be so selfish.
Whoever may be afraid to go home in
the dark, Aid. Hilditch is not!
But the alderman is anxious about
the kiddies going down town to buy
their Xmas toys. The tiny tots may
tumble and flatten their small noses
and it's Aid. Hilditch to the rescue-
Women and children first! Throw out
the life line! or rather the pole line! Let
there be light!
Why wait for a substantial power
house to be built for the engines? says
Aid. Hilditch. Run up some sort of a
shack room, then turn on the juice
good and quick. How is Santa Claus
to get round Prince Rupert and fill
up the little stockings if the city is
deep in Cimmerian darkness?
If Aid. Hilditch wants to form himself
into a committee of one and show the
light committee how to squeeze the
juice out before Xmas, he is very welcome to do so, says Aid. Mobley. He
can act either independently or in
conjunction w-th the electric light
committee.
But Aid. Hilditch thinks it too late
in the year for him to butt in to thc
business, and doesn't intend to show
the light committee anything. Ready
enough to criticize, however. Aid. Hilditch said he had heard rumors that
there were reasons for the non-appearance
of light long ere this. He wondered
if the light committee knew- them.
From the assured standpoint of the
man who has been there to see for him
self Aid. Lynch spoke of the light plant.
His observations showed him that the
work was going on steadily and speedily.
A proper building was required in which
to instal the machinery. Some masonry
was now being built which would be
followed by the frame work of the
power house, as soon as the floor was
prepared for the engines. He sug
gested that Aid. Hilditch should go
down and have a look at the progress
of the work for himself.   ���
As mentioned in another report, the
lumber for the power house is being

o the Electors
ladies and Gentlemen:
In response to a largely signed requisition received yester
asking me to allow my name to be placed in nomination  for
office of Mayor of the City of Prince Rupert for the year 1911,
hereby accede to the request and beg to announce myself a can-
date.
I will take occasion later on to present my views upon Muni-
pal issues to the electors, and in the meantime I would respect-
solicit your support upon the basis of an efficient and progres-
k-e administration of the affairs of the City.
Did you ever notice that we don't
have any suicides these days. Not
so very long ago there was something
of an epidemic of this kind of thing. Of
course the blind pigs had nothing to do
with it but it's a bit peculiar just the
same.
Higher Wages in Liquor Business
In the manufacture of liquor in
Canada the average wage paid is $581.00
per man.
In all other industries the average
wage paid is $418.00.
These figures are taken from a government report circulated by the Scott Act
advocates yesterday, with the view of
proving that the liquor industry paid
less wages than other industries.

Scott Act people can make their own

o the Electors

At the completion of my term of office as Alderman, I have
eon approached by a number of my colleagues and citizens with
he request that I permit myself to be [entered in {nomination for

After consideration, I have consented to that request, and
Jerewith announce my candidacy.
At public meetings to be held later on to discuss municipal
ksues I will present a programme of work, as the basis ofjmy can-
pdatnre.
Yours respectfully
that their statements wen* absolutely
untrue. It is exactly as if a business
man tried to bolster his credit by a
false statement at thc bank. There
is a law against obtaining money under
false pretenses. Should there not also
be one for obtaining votes in a similar
manner.
Would we have heard anything about
the shortcomings ol Mayor Gluck if
he had not had the courage to tell the
truth about conditions in his city. If
there is one thing the Prohibitionist
does not like it's a man who tells the
truth.

ADDLING THE SCOTT ACT ARGUMENTS
'The following is published by the Press Corn-
allies- nf the opponents of the Scott Act, and Is
' Ihe expression of the views of this paoer.l
A Thriving City
Our old friend Dr. Spencer is quite
humorist in his own modest and
���"elirini- way. If you don't believe it
''i hold o( a sheet being circulated in
|town by the Scott Act people bearing
|hu signature. It's a gem and describes
j�� 'own in Ontario, called Midland, with
I* l��>|iulation of five thousand, about
Wm siz,, of Prince Rupert.
As ysjU open tne 8neet the f0--ow'ng
I'll large type stares you in the face:
The Drug Store Away Ahead." We
|<'r">'t doubt it for a moment. This
l-V-ems to be the universal verdict in
l-Vott Act towns.
rim her on we read: "Ten new houses
"  '"'ing  built   within   one   hundred
yard, of my home."   Don't they build
| ��� mile nioae together in Midland.
"* **** "eam of the whole collection
is contained in a letter from an alderman.
He starts as follows: "We have expended
$12,000 on new streets and $3,000 on
roads." This is certainly going some
for a town the size of Prince Rupert.
How would our City Council like to
have the handling of such vast sun-s.
This would make every man who has
any aspirations as an alderman vote
for the Scott Act. Again: "I had to
pay $500 this summer for a lot I could
have purchased two years ago for $150."
We have heard of Prince Rupert real
estate increasing in value to this extent
in two days. But what do you think
of this: "We paid $1,800 debentures
that were due last year." This seems
incredible. Where could they have
raised such a vast sum in one year. We
are afraid these Scott Act people are
only trying to fool us, or some of us
would have heard of this phenomonally
rich burg before.
It is only a short time ago that a
writer in one of the newspapers proved
one of the speakers at Sunday night's
meeting unfair to organized labor.
This was the man, by the way, who
attacked Mayor Gluck, of Kansas City,
for telling the truth about Prohibition.
According to a speaker at Sundr.y
night's meeting Mayor A. Gluck. of
Kansas City, is in league with the
hotels. The city is a banner town of
Prohibition and yet they elect a liquor
man for mayor four times. Funny
isn't it.
Wonder why the speaker at Sunday
night's meetirg did not call Mayor
Gluck of Kansas City a gambler, thief,
and an enemy of society generally.
That seems to be the favorite answer
of the Prohibitionist to any honest
criticism of their policy.
That was a noble array of business
men at Sunday night's meeting.
It has been proved that Prohibition
increases the consumption of liquor. It
also seems to be certain that it hurts
business. Query: Who is the enemy
of society, the liquor man or the temperance crank?
Virago Sound are, or have been from
time immemorial, the habitat of the
nearest approach to the fabled unicorn
that is known to naturalists, is the
conclusion forced home by inspection
of the only two specimens yet secured
of the much-discussed Queen Charlotte caribou, one of which has now
been well mounted by Curator Kermode of thc British Columbia Museum
which institution the rare specimens
are to adorn. ^
How the caribou reached the Queen
Charlotte is one of nature's secrets,
but it is presumed that they have been
there since the island formed part of
the mainland���now 30 miles away���
and have steadily deteriorated through
in-breeding, until today the few survivors
can scarce be recognized as of the same
species as the mainland caribou.
The three animals in all secured for
the museum were killed by Indians
three years ago, and very badly preserved. Expert attention has done
wonders with them, however, and the
first mounted specimen shows an animal
of lightest fawn about the size of nn
average mule deer, weighing perhaps
in life 225 pounds. It has no plough,
as have all the heads of the other members of the caribou family, and il is
especially curious that two-thirds of
the heads secured have but a single
horn for each animal, growing on the
right side of the head, while on the left
side there is the merest lump at the
natural growing point. Each of the
museum specimens has been fully matured, even aged, as evidenced by the
well-worn or lost teeth.
CHRISTMAS AT HOME
We know that Scott Act will mean
'blind pigs" and it has been demonstrated that blind pigs in Prince Rupert
mean suicides, hut what of that. Suicides mean nothing to these temperance
cranks. They are asking the whole city
to commit suicide on the 14th.
As the Scott Act advocates seem to
have some trouble in getting the business
men to take part in their meetings, why
do they not call upon their friends
among the blind pig element to tell what
the licensed bars have done to them.
Two men were watching a couple of
foreigners arguing. One of thc men
understood the language the others
spoke, the other did not. Suddenly
the man who did n-<t understand said:
"That follow seems to be getting the
worst of thc argument." Knowing that
he could not understand what was being
Two Prince Rupert  Men  Dacida to
Celebrate in England
There is no melancholy atmosphere
about the visions of thc dear home
land which are now being selfishly
indulged in by at least two of the passengers of the Pacific Coast steamer
Senator which left Prince Rupert for
Seattle early this afternoon. Their
names arc Mr. R. Wharton and Mr. G.
Gamble. They arc both taking the trip
south as a preliminary spurt to the
dash across the continent and then the
broad Atlantic home to England, the
land of their fathers, for a Christmas
holiday.
Besides these two extraordinary passengers the Senator is carrying a list
of twenty-eight, most of whom are bent
southwards by the call of the Christmas
gatnering at their early homes.

Directions for the Guidance of Voters
The voter will go into one of the compartmeata, and with a paper there
provided, place a cross thus, X in the upper space if he votes FOR the adoption
of the petition (SCOTT ACT), and in the lower space if he votes AGAINST the
adoption of the petition (SCOTT ACT).
The voter will then fold the ballot, so as to show a portion of the back only,
with the number and initials of the deputy returning officer, and deliver it to
the deputy returning officer, who will place it in the ballot box. The voter will
then forthwith quit the polling station.
If a voter inadvertently spoils a ballot paper he can return it to the proper
officer, who, on being satisfied of the fact, will give him another.
If the voter places on the ballot more than one mark, or places any mark
on it by which he can afterwards be identified, hiB vote will be void, and will
not be counted.
If the voter takes a ballot paper out of the polling station, or fraudently
puts any other paper into the ballot box than the ballot paper given him by the
deputy returning officer, he will be subject to be punished by fine or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months, with or without hard labor.
Don't forget that the petition is FOR the Scott Act. If
you are not in favor of a dry town you must mark your
ballot in the lower space. AGAINST the petition means
AGAINST the Scott Act. AND DON'T FAIL TO
VOTE. Every man in town entitled to vote on this question should do so. It is the most important question which
will be submitted to the people for years, and means the
life or death of the city.

LAST LETTER
STILL PROTESTS INNOCENCE OF
THE CHARGE OF MURDER
Letter Haa Been Made Public by
Mias Le Neve���Hopes the World
Will Have Pity on Her, Is the Dr.'a
Last Wiah
London, Nov. 28.���The last letter
said to have been written by Dr. H. H
Crippen, filled with protestations of his
innocence of the murder of his wife, for
which crime he was hanged on last Wed
nesday, and of love for Ethel Le Neve
was made public Saturday by Miss Le
Neve, the recipient. The letter is published by Lloyd's newspapers. In part
it is as follows: '. fijfi.J
"How can I find the strength of
heart to struggle through this last letter? God indeed must hear our cry to
him for Divine help in this last- farewell. How to control myself to write
I hardly know, but I pray God to help
us to be brave to face the end. Thoughts
rush to my head quicker than I can put
them down. The time is too short now
and there is much I would say. There
are less than two days left to us.
"When I wrote to you Saturday I had
not heard any news of a petition. Although I never at any time dared to
hope, yet deep down in my heart was
just a glimmer of trust that God might
give us yet a chance to put me right
before the world and let me have the
passionate longing of my soul.
"How long am I to endure this last
look at your face? What agony I must
go through at last when you disappear
forever from my eyes?
"God help us to be brave then. I
know what your agony will be for I
know that your heart, like mine, will
be broken. I am comforted at least in
thinking that, through all the years
of our friendship never have I passed
one unkind word or given one reproachful look to her whom I have loved best
in life; to whom I have given myself
heart and soul wholly and entirely
forever.
"I want my dear one to keep for her
own use all that can be realized from
my estate. We can safely leave to the
hand of a just God the production later
of evidence proving my innocence. My
worries and troubles here will soon be
ended, as I shall be tomorrow in God's
hands.   I have perfect faith in His help.
"Let my spirit be with you always and
after the earthly separation is finished
we will join our souls forever.
"Hope the world will have pity on the
woman, who, however weak she may
have seemed in their eyes, has been loyal
in the misery of the tragedy and whose
love has been strong and self sacrificing.
"These are my last words. 1 belong no
more to this world, and in the silence
of my cell I pray that God may pity
all weak hearts, all the poor children of
life and His poor servant.

"Boss, Isc charged with alcohol," was

It was tt a fancy dress ball. On of
the guests, a tall, fu-.ely-built man,
came dressed as a Roman general in the
cumberous appendages of olden times.
At the same dance was a little professor
of classics to whom anything Roman was
a subject of deepest interest.
"Excuse me, sir," said thc professor,
meekly sidling up to the big man, "but
are you Appius Claudius?"
The Roman "general" savagely glanced down and snapped out:
"Non, confound you! Can't you see
I'm as miserable as can be?"

Speech From the Throne
Extraordinary misconceptions are entertained in some quarters as to the
nature of the Speech, which the King
delivers at the opening or close* of
parliamentary sessions. Those people
who make up the telegrams for some
of the papers seem to be under the
impression that the Speech in some
way reflects his Majesty's personal
views. As a matter of fact it is doubtful if there was a single sentence in
the prorogation speech inspired by the
King iml.'ss it may have been that in
which he expressed his intention to
follow in his father's footsteps. This
being an expression of personal intention was probably due to thc King himself, but all thc references to public
questions are the language of his ministers.

Viaitor Threatens   to Leave if Scott
Act Pasaea
A gentleman recently arrived here
has been in negotiation with Superintendent Mehan for the purchase of
the launch Ki-Yax, but on Saturday
called and asked that the option be
continued until December 15th, as if the
Scott Act carried he would have no need
of the boat.
Recently he had come here from the
Eastern States intending to establish
himself in business here, leasing premises
and so forth. Then came this election
in reference to the Scott Act. He
declares if it should pass he will throw
up his year's lease and go back to Maine,
and forfeit the money he has invested
here rather than stay.

NON-PERSONAL LIABITITY
Thursday, December 8, the sale of Silver Cup treasury shares at 12 1-2 Cents Per
Share will be withdrawn. The Continued favorable developments in the mine
together with the substantial treasury reserve will enable the Company to proceed
on a system of development that is calculated to add great value to the stock.
A big advance in the price of shares is justified on recent important discoveries, and we feel sure of
a steady, permanent and extended advance in the market price of Silver Cup shares. Looking a few
months ahead, we venture the opinion that the stock will sell for many times the present price. Our
prenictions are based upon sound estimates of what may reasonably be expected from a liberal development of the Silver Cup ore bodies. : To secure Silver Cup Mines at 12 1-2 cents per share
call at our office on or before Thursday, December 8. Terms of purchase furnished on application.
We reserve the right to return applications in the event of an over-subscription.

Again W. J. Green has approached
the city council in regard to the building
of a stable close to Ins residence. The
stable has just been put up by James
McKay of the Pony Express company,
on Eighth avenue near Fulton street, and
cloasely adjoins the house occupied by
Mr. Green.
At the time the permit was granted
to Mr. James McKay to erect the
stable through a misunderstanding the
building inspector's attention was not
called to the presence of dwellings
near the site which is at the back of
the lot. Neither is there any special
provision in reference to this aspect of
stable erection in the Building By-lnw.
It comes under the Health By-law.
At last night's council meeting Mr.
J. McKay gave his explanation of how-
he came to build after consulting with
the sanitary inspector who had first
stopped the work and later allowed it to
proceed.
The sanitary ins| ertor explained that
he had told Mr. McKoy the result of
on interview with Aid. Barrow in which
the view of the health committee
given was that it could not interfere
with the erection of the building but
had to wait until an actual nuinanre was
proved before interfering.
That it waa surely a hardship upon the
owner of the stable to be put to the
expense of building only to find himself
unable to use the premises built for
their intended purpose, waa the opinion
of the Mayor. He adds that if the city
had made any error in the matter then
the s ity would huve to make good agiiin.
The situation will be fully considered
on Thursday Mr. McKay having been
requested by Aid. Pattullo to present
his position in writing then. On behalf
nf the health committee Aid. Hilditch
will investigate the circumstances, and
report upon them.
For the future the building inspector
will be supplied with a copy of the
health by-law to use- in conjtTrX'tiuii with
the building by-law.
