[ING GEORGE VINDICATED
MORGAN^CMJBEL NAILED
[Distributor of Paris Paper Which Revived the Story
Fails to Make It Stick���Get. Twelve Months'
Imprisonment for Seditious Libels
Where is The
Game Warden?
[Special to the Optimist)
London, Feb. 2.���A death blow to
tbt story ol King George's alleged
norganatii: marriage was dealt in London yesurday when E. F. Mylius, distributor of the Liberator, a Republican
piper issued in Paris, was convicted of
Kditious libel, promptly convicted, and
ant to prison for twelve months. The
th rv|*and report to the effect that
Kins George while a cadet in the Royal
K.iy iv.n:,:: luiH-illy married the daugh-
��� ol Sir Michael Seymour was given
tomplt't.' refutation in the highest
mr. ol ,li" land. Mylius failed to
mikr .1 tingle puint during the whole
!thctKlgainsl him.
According tu tho story us it appeared
��� the paper lhe supposed marriage
["���rith the daughter of Sir Michael Sey
mour took place in 1890 in the islantl
of Malta, but the admiralty records
show that at that time the king d'd not
hold an appointment on uny ship thai
visited the island between thc fall of
1889 and tha summer of 1893.
The marriage records of the island
were scanned and they failed to produce
any proof that such a marriage had been
recorded.
The last word in the conviction of
the libel was provided by thc daughter
of Admiral Seymour herself. She is
now the wife of Captain Napier. She
entered the witness box and declared
on oath that she had seen thi> king hui
three times in her life.
The trial created profound interest
and the court was crowded to excess
by fashionable ladies and gentlemen.
So many complaints are being |
made about the deer butchery *
that is going on at night in the
vicinity of Tuck's Inlet that some
folks are wondering whether we
have a game warden or not. The
butchery is being conducted by
several parties, most of whom go J
"pitlamping" with lanterns on
their heads. The slaughtered
animals, it is alleged, are being
smuggled into town where they
find their way to the restaurants
while some are sold to the railroad camps.
Where

i is the game warden?

into high banks. The temperature has
again fallen to zero. The freight traffic is tied up completely and in consequence the passenger trains are running from cwenty-four to forty-eight

RUPERT'S EAGLES
IN GOOD SHAPE
BIG SMOKER HELD LAST NIGHT
IN K. OF P. HALL
Gathered, as their President remarked,
to have a good tim.\ the Eagles present
Well proved Ins words true. Abundance
of tobacco in its most popular forms
was provided. There were refreshments
in plenty, liquid and solid, and with
songs, recitations, mock trials, and
boxing matches the entertainment went
merrily.
George Leek was judge in the mock
trials and administered justice sternly
upon delinquents accused of all manner
of crime*. The proceedings were most
amusing. In t he fistic encounters several
rounds were fought by contestants
of light and heavy weight, and much
merriment was caused by the first
humorous encounter put up by a cheerful novice entering into the fun of tin
thing and a substantial opponent more
skilled in the manly art.
The smoker was a great sucresa, and
the Eagles are now looking forward to
their dance on the 6th of February in
the Kaien Island Club.

Handsome Presentation to Brother

of the Order In Prince Rupert.
Boxing Contests Proved Popular.
Eagles of Prince Rupert Aerie assembled last night in the K. of P. Hall and
enjoyed a capital smoker. The Fraternal Order of Eagles is strong in the
city and there was a large attendance.
Early in the evening the opportunity
was taken of presenting to Bro. W. J.
McCutcheon, first president of the
order in Prince Rupert, a handsome
gold enamelled Eagle charm.
With a well-expressed word or two
Brother B. F. Self made the. presentation, and Brother McCutcheon was
applauded in true Eagle style us he
acknowledged the compliment gracefully. His address was brief, and wus
followed by an enthusiastic appreciation
of the range and fraternity of thc order
by Brother Madlem.
An unfortunate slip that might easily
have ended in death betrayed the old
Captain Moore of the governnunt whip
Restless about noon today. He was
attempting to leave the ship for thc
wharf when he took a false step which
landed him in the water after lie had
collided violently with the gunwale
of his boat. His cries quickly brought
assistance and with the aid of a grappling
hook he was safely brought aboard the
ship again.
It was a near go. His concussion with
the gunwale broke two of h's ribs and
the sudden nhoek of the extremely cold
water rendered him unconscious. Hut
fur the fact that he had -mittetl a cry
immediately h's balance deserted him
he might raaily have perished in the
water unknown to any of his crew.

of I'rince Kupert. People contemplating
settling here write asking about prospects
People thinking about going into tic
rich interior territory write asking if
they can purchase supplies, etc., in
Prinee Rupert reasonably. Thc whole
correspondence suggests prosperity for
thc ciiy and its merchants.
Sine- the task of replying to these
letters is go'ting beyond the power
of the secretary of the hoard of trade, a
meeting of tho board was held last
niglu in his offices to discuss plans for
issuing the facts SO often sought regarding Kupert in pamphlet form.
A campaign of advertising for Prince
Kupert will be opened to extend Wen
farther the range of enquiries, and a
pamphlet covering thc Bold of enquiry
fully, will be prepared. The claims ol
the interior territory will be n.lvanta-
gtously set forth, and the city itself
will be fully dealt with. Facts, facts,
facts is the cry. Not pictures or fairytales just the things people want to
know- the many things we have to
be proud of about our city.
An advertising committee composed
of the following members was appointed
last night: W. P. Lynch, W. M. Law,
J. G. Scott, 11. A. White and G. W.
Nickerson.
Other busin.ss dealt with last night
involved some criticism of th post
office. The need for premises nearer
the business section was emphasized.
It was thought that a temporary post
oflice should be put up soon, as the
prospect of a permanent one seems
remote. It was agreed that the post-
masier is laboring under considerable
difficulty and no criticism whatever
was directed against him. Rut the
delay in delivering mail to calk rs at the
wickets, the difficulty ol getting stamps
or money orders while mail is being
soritd, the chnrgis for box r.m, and
(he r.eetl for uptown mailing places Were
all mentioned as requiring attention.
It was -uggislid that the di pertinent
at Ottawa be notified of tbe need for
expansion in the present post office t<>
um the needs ol tbe growing eiiy, and
meantime a committet wa- appointed
to interview th.* postmaster and go

viz., F. Stork, W. Lynch, D. H. Morrison, W. Law and F. Mobley.
J. J. Sloan applied for membership
and was admitted.
The Secretary is to take up the
matter of a waiting room on lhe wharf
and to try to get something done towards
meeting this need. He will also look
into the matter of local express rates
which are thought by the Board of
Trade to be exorbitant, and repre
sentalions will be made to the various
expr.ss companiee,
A suggestion by A. F.. McMaster tha

CULVERTS MUST

IS  EXPENSE  TO   BE  BORNE  BY
GENERAL FUND
City Council la Considering Matter
Which Remains Unsettled Alderman Newton Wants to Consult
the People on the Sub.ect.
About 130 men are at present employed on works for the city by the
city engineering department. A considerable part of their operations consists in lhe building of culverts to deal
with the drainage from wide areas in
the central sections the natural outlet
for which is being crossitl hy the new
street grades. At the last city
c luncil the question of payment for
'h.-se works came up. Is it to be done
out of general fund or local improvement?
That it is chargeable lo general fund
is the opinion of Alderman Pattullo,
but Alderman Hilditch favors local
improvement. He told the council he
believed that in paying more than
$15,000 on this work out of general.fund
the city was breaking the municipal
clauses act.
Alderman Pattullo thought it hardly
fair that Section One owners should
pay for work which is rendered necessary
by the drainage water from higher
areas.
Alderman Newton advocated thnt the
people shntild be .insulted before money-
was s|x*nt on any improvements of this
sort.
The matter is still unsettled Acting
Mayor Smith having suggested thnt
the aldermen consider il further between
now anil next council meeting.

WHY THIS DELAY.
Enquires Alderman N
swton R.-j.rdJ
Evidently none Of the properly owners
onstreeti now being graded are going
to undertake tie building of retaining
walls in front of their own lots. This
plan it was thought would be generally
adopted. Some property owners did
go to the length of having plans antl
specifications prepared, but they went
no farther, adn it is up to the city now
to look after the job as a whole. Thu
matter came up at 1 he last ouncil,
Colonel Davis, the city engineer, in
a full report explained five methods
of constructing retaining walls. The
one he recommended most would cost
1229,000 and would be imbstantiaUy
coast rutted masonry of good appearance.
The less expensive intermediate methods
were described, and lhe last method
which could be done without the employment of masons would cost J8.000.
This method would give a retaining
wall substantial enough, but lacking
in appearance compared with the first
method.
On this question Altleman Hilditch
was condemnatory. He could not
favor the motion to adopt the report
l-ecausc   he   thought   there   was   not

I.ancisco was chosen in the Mouse
money enough for the lirst rate scheme, *k|*��f*entatIveB today as ihe int ll
and he didn't think the other methods
worth Undertaking. He blamed the
situation on last council. Alderman
Pattullo was surprised thai Alderman
Hilditch should take up this attitude
in regard to the old council. If the
responsibility for the present difficulty
was on the old council how much of
it res'ed on Alderman Hilditch himself? he asked. Alderman Hilditch wits
a  member  of the  streets,  works antl
property committee of last council.
Alderman Pattullo went on to say that
while he favored the $229,000 scheme
for retaining walls he did not think
the city could stand it now, and he
also did not think it fair to the owners
west of lhe junction to make them pay
for improvements over the whole section.
The f 8 000 scheme was not perfect but
it would give a fairly substantial wall,
and he ditl not think the cily could
afford 11 better scheme.
In Alderman Morrisey's opinion the
whole matter could safely be left with
the city engineer. The city had a good
engineer, antl the question might well
be left in his hands. This view was
( . supported by Alderman Clayton.

KING GEORGE VINDICATED
'MORGANATIC LIBEL NAILED
Lributor of Paris Paper Which Revived the Story
FaiU to Make It Stick���Get. Twelve Months'
Imprisonment for Seditious Libels
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Feb. 2.���A  death  blow  to
the story  o(   King   George's   alleged
morganatic marriage was dealt in London yesterday when E. F. Mylius, distributor of the Liberator, a Republican
paper issued in Paris, was convicted of
tediiious libel, promptly convicted, and
lent to prison for tweKe months.   The
oft repeand report to the effect that i
King George while a cadet in the Royal I
Ssvy morgsnatically married the daughter ol Sir Michael Seymour was given
i compli't.- refutation  in the  highest
I court of the land. Mylius failed to
m~�� a single point during the whole
���tht cue against him.
IAccording lo the story as it appeared
in tht paper Lhe supposed marriage
with the daughter of Sir Michael Sey
mour took place in 1890 in the island
of Malta, but the admiralty v-cords
show that at that time tht king d<d not
hold an appointment on uny ship thai
visited the island between the fall of
1889 and the summer of 1893.
The marriage records of the island
were scanned and they failed to produre
any proof that such a marriage had been
recorded.
The last word in the conviction of
the libel was provided by the daughter
of Admiral Seymour herself. She is
now the wife of Captain Napier. She
entered the witness box and declared
on oath thai she had seen the king but
three times in her life.
The trial created profound interest
and the court was crowded to excess
by fashionable ladies and gentlemen.
Where is The
Game Warden?
So many complaints are being
made about the deer butchery
that is going on at night in the
vicinity of Tuck's Inlet that some
folks are wondering whether we
have a game warden or not. The
butchery is being conducted by
several parties, most of whom go
"pitlamping" with lanterns on
their heads. The slaughtered
animals, it is alleged, are being
smuggled into town where they
find their way to the restaurants
while some are sold to the railroad camps.

anil th "n,'.r���ion oI lhe scenes visited

had experienced the "moving accidents
by flood and field" and with a keen
sympathy for the subject he told the
story of them over again for the benefit
of the audience.
He told of how he had left Edmonton
when  quite  a   young  man   and   how
ihe report of an accident  to himself
had made his wife a virtual widow-
though   she   never   accepted   or  even
lielieveil in her freedom.    He related
numerous stories of thc Indians . i.d the
foreign  prospectors.    On one occasion
he wus nearly strangled for love because
after talking for days to a Frenchman
in English and tho Frenchman replying
in  French���antl  neither understanding
the other -they  discovered that each
other could talk German with sufficient
fluency  to   be   understood.    The  joy
of the Frenchman ut hearing a tongue
he  was  familiar  with  sent  him  into
ecstacies.
Mr. Mobley was heartily thanked for
his address.

Well proved his words true. Abundance
of tobacco in ils moat popular forms

in plenty, liquid and solid, and with
songs, recitations, mock trials, and
boxing matches the entertainment went
merrily.
George Leek waa judge in the mock
trials and administered justice Bternly
upon delinquents accused of all manner
of crimes. The proceedings were most
amusing. In t he fistic encounters several
rounds were fought by contestants
of light and heavy weight, and much
merriment was caused by the first
humorous encounter put up by a cheerful novice entering into the fun of the
thing and a substantial opponent more
skilled in the manly art.
The smoker was a great success, and
the Eagles are now looking forward to
their dance on the 6th of February in

realized that it waa time for them to
revise their code of conduct towards
these new Amazons. Women themselves
have cruelly and basely slain chivalry,
a good friend for centuries. When they
showed how they could dispense with it
in business, they drove it forever out
of their lives, to perish miserably in the
cold.
To admit its death is by no means to
repine it.
Chivalry haa lived a long and useful life and died full of years. It has
served its purpose through many centuries of a ruder civilization.
We live too rapidly for chivalry
nowadays. Women are the rivals of
men. They are treated by the latter
in offhand manner, and they like it.

The following item appeared in the
Vancouver Province of January the
25th, and will no doubt, be of interest
to the people of Prnce Rupert. A marriage occurred yesterday at the home
of the bride'a sister, Mrs. A. E. Perkins,
148 Tenth avenue, of Mr. H. H. Morton
of Prince Rupert and Miss Hattie L.
Fisher of thiB city. The ceremony which
was performed by the Rev. J. W. Wood-
aide in the presence of a few guests
took place at 12.30 o'clock. The rooms
were prettily decorated with a bright
floral arrangement of carnations and
chrysanthemums. The bride wore a
handsome gown of white duchesse
satin with a yoke of Irish lace, the same
lace appearing on the overskirt which
was also adorned with pearl trimmings.
She wore a veil and wreath of orange
blossoms and carried a shower bouquet
of white roses and carnations. After
a buffet luncheon had been served, Mr.
and Mrs. Morton left for a trip to
Seattle and Portland, the latter travelling in a blue cloth tailored suit and large
white beaver hat trimmed with white
fur and a marabout feather. They will
make their home in Prince Rupert.

"The Passing of Chivalry"
Chivalry is dead���dead and buried
beneath the stress and turmoil of these
latter days Before women entered
into competition with her brothers and
lovers in the struggle for existence,
a courteous gallantry marked the bearing of her mankind in those pastimes
in which the sexes came in contact.
But once the girlhood of this country
awoke to the fact that there were occupations more remunerative than crewel-work and embroidery, chivalry waa
j given its death blow.   It was impossible
longer  to  look  upon  the sturdy  lass
who competed so cloiely and so relentlessly  in  business with the masculine

Is the Moral Reform Council Deceived?
There appears to have been some misunderstanding in the minds of the members
of the Moral and Social Reform Council of Prince Rupert when they moved their
recent resolution expressing their "appreciation of the recent declared determination of the Police Commissioners together with lhe Mayor and City t'ouncil to rid
our city of undesirable characters connected with the social evil." There Is only
a limited Intention on behalf of the authorities. The intention is only to rid the
city of those undesirables who have no votes. Some who have votes are to be allowed to slay.
For the benefit ��f his Lordship Blihop Du Vernet, Rev. F. W. Kerr and others
who perhaps an DOt In the way of being well informed about these matters, the
Optimist informs them that the denizens of the dead line are divided into two
classes, the occupants of the cribs and the occupants of the so-called parlor houses.
The parlor houses ar.' well furnished places, patronised by citizens of a more moneyed
clam. The proprietor, have votes and are reputad to bo wealthy. Between the
two dsnes of houses a commercial rivalry exists.
No attempt has lieen made by the Police Commissioners to interfere with
the parlor houses.   It is undersiood thai none is to be matle    The Optimist is informed that il wits "understood," by the parlor house keepers at the time they
supported Mr. Manson that the cribs were to be swept out and the parlor   house
retained.
The order issued to ('diet McCarvell on January 17th by Mayor Manson
reads: "There is in this city at present a class of undesirables such as gamblers
tinhorns, blind pigs anil crib keepers. I desire that the Chief of Police should
give some guarantee that these people should be cleaned out of Prince Rupert.'
No mention was made of the parlor house keepers, and no action has been taken
to clean them out.
Of course, it may be that the commissioners do not look on the keepers and
occupanls of the parlor houses as undesirables. Some commissioners in other cities
do take that view In which case, the Moral and Social Reform Council of Princ
Rupert may perhaps see the wisdom of moving an amendment to their resolution
of "our most hearty appreciation," etc

the select committee oi the Cily Council unconsciously perhaps, did the men a
piece of Injustice. They I hose an hour when the men will be at work In order
to appear before ilie committee each of ilv men will have to lose a half tlay's pay;
Ever since Alderman Newton gave the clue in his paper that his real object
in supporting lhe resolution to nnd lhe matter to a select committee, was to sidetrack thc t-u, ition, ilie i.un are suspicious of the Council's treatment This ll
not entirely justified, for in the mind "i Alderman Pattullo who moved the resolution, in order to fori..* the Council to take act'on, there was undoubtedly ��
sincere desire n> find <.ui what could be dono for ih.* workers. ,    fpi

CAPT. ALC0CK
HAS RESIGNED
GENIAL HARBORMASTER WILL
SPEND HIS DAYS DOWN SOUTH
Sent In Hi. Re.ignatlon Today and
Will Sell Out Hia Property Interests���Has Had an Interesting
Career as a Pioneer.
Ichabod may very well be inscribed
above the door of the harbor master's,
ollicc on the I'rince Rupert wharf today,
for indeed the glory hath departed therefrom. Captain Alcock, the first harbor
matter of Prince Rupert has resigned.
Prince Rupert is not very old and the
Office of harbor master is not so old as
that. It is only a few months since
Captain Alcock was installed, and
during the short period he has been on
dsck he has become a famil;ar figure
not only ubout the waterfront but
throughout the city.
The genial captain is generally known
as a pioneer, not only in Prince Ruiierl
but in the northland. He spent the
vital iH-riod of his life in the great,
Yukon and there acquired that spirit
of generous independence which is the
characteristsic of the w*��tern frontiersman. Hiii knowledge of the coast of
British Columbia and his acquaintance
with shipping in general made him a
fit |>erson for tho post of first harbor
master of Prince Rupert. When his
genial countenance is no longer to bo
seen, and his stentorian voice no longer
to be heard in these pans, there will
bc many who will regret the loss.
What is more to be regretted, the
worthy captain is leaving the city for
good. His house and lots on Dunsmuir
street which would give anyone the
impression thai his life interest was
wrapped up in the ciiy, are to be sold.
He tendered his nsignation today. It
takes effect on the first day of March
after which it is his intention to go south
to Vancouver.
Like many another whose lot haa
I'.in enat in ih-s western part of the
I worltl the passage of hia life haa liei-n
full of tips an.l downs. He can remini-
si'iice about the Yukon wilh an int r. M
borne of close acquaint ance with the
subject, and many of the romantic
youths nf thc city have had llie'r adventurous aspirations whetted hy his
hree/.y and entertaining stories of the
lift, in the frozen north among the
mining campa of the Klondike.

COAL NOTICE
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Feb. 2.���A large quantity
of dynamite which was in transit from
a freight car to the hold of a lighter
moored  off  Communipaw,  N. J., ex-!
ploded at noon today.    The effect of
the explosion was terrible.   There were I
about thirty people in the immediate
vicinity of the dynamite when it exploded and when the smoke and lliiine !
had cleared away they were all writhing
on the ground in their death   aponics.
Seven men who were handling the ex- j
plosive were killed outright and seven
more who were lending a hand were so
horribly mutiliated that they only lived
a very few minutes while others died
in hospital from wounds.
This did not exhaust thc damage.
About a hundred people altogether who
were working near the neighborhood
of the explosion sustained injuries os
a most serious nature. The bodies of
the dead men were unrecognizable.
They were removed with all possible
speed from the scene of the tragedy
to the morgue where they were placed
in a row awaiting the coining of their
relatives to claim them.
Besides the loss of life the damage
to property is estimated at $350,000.

at Third avenue and Cnerry late yesterday. There was no one in the automobile at the time. It started on its
own account down thc grade from thc
Athletic Club building where it had
been left standing.
Connors did not see the machine
coming and of course received no warning. The chauffeur of the auto was
in such a state over the tragedy that
he gave himslef up to the police.

"I believe I'll give that poor cat a
piece of meat"
"What! and pauperize the cat? Always help a mendicant to help himself.
Scatter some crumbs on tho sidewalk.
Maylie they will attract a bird for thc
cat to catch."
"My girl's parents won't let me see
her. Can't I get out an injunction or
some sort of a law paper?"
"I should think n writ of attachment
would 1ml- in order."
In a certain camp n battalion was being instructed on "How to take a convoy
through open country." One company
was told off to represent convoy, the men
being instructed that they were to represent torsos, cows and wagons.
After being halted a short time, the
advance signal was given, and the convoy moved on, but the major noticed
that one man continued to lie down, und
galloping Up to him in a rage, said:
"Man, why don't you advance?"
Thc soldier replied: "I can't, sir."
Major:   "You can't?   What do you
mean?"
"I'm a wagon," said the soldier, "and
I've got a wheel off."
Maxima of Mark Twain
Let us bc grateful to Adam our benefactor. He cut out the "blessing"
of idleness and won for us the "curse"
of labor.
When people do not respect us we
are sharply offended; yet d5cp down in
his private heart no man much respects
himself.
Nature makes the locust with an appetite for crops; man would have made
him with an appetite for sand.
There is no such thing as "The
Queen's English." Thc property has
gone into the hands of a joint stock
company and we own the bulk of tho
shares.
It is by the goo ness of God that in
our country we have those three unspeakably preciouB things: Freedom of
speech, freedom of conscience, and the
prudence never to practice either of
them.
There is a moral sense and there is
an immoral sense. History shows us
that the moral sense enables us to perceive moralit y and how to avoid it and
that the immoral BenBc enables us to
perceive immorality and how to enjoy
it.
A GREAT PACK
OF SALMON
NEARLY TWO AND HALF MILLION
CASES FOR 1910
The Largest Output Since 1902���Despite Enormoua Output the Price
la Better Today Than It Haa Been
for Yeara.
The US. department announces the
Alaska salmon pack for 1910 was '-,-
391,000 cases, the.largest since 1902.
Notwithstanding the enormous pack
the price of salmon is better tod y than
for years, particularly the price of the
poorer grades of salmon, due a great
deal to the literature issued by the
government urging the use of salmon as
cheap foodstuff.

made by Hon. Frank Oliver to a representative of thc Canadian Mail, a
London, Eng., publication. The statement is based on the reports of the
departments' ���gents in Great Bri'ain
and the United States.
"Canada," said the Minister, "is thc
only country in the world today giving
away good land with good conditions.
And it is given away free, gratis, but not
for nothing. This is with us a matter
of principle and national policy. Not
only is Canada giving away this land,
but she won't sell it."
"Does that mean, Mr. Oliver," asked
the interviewer, "that the Dominion
Government won't sell any land at all
to anyone?"
"It means we have millions of acres
to give to millions, but nol a foot to
sell. The reason 's that thc Dominion
wants citizens, not speculators. Thc
Canadian people arc a business people,
nnd as s business proposiiion it pays
them better to give this land away,
than it would to sell it -always provided that the land '���* g'ven to those
who w'll br>ng 't into use. Thc conditions of thc g'ft are use and orcupat'on
"All the hundreds of thousands that
are convng to Canada every year know���
every man of them���that the first comer
gets the lund, whatever land he has
chosen, confident that no pul' or influence is ahead of him. To all ot thim
we say: 'We want, nol your money,
j but your citizenship.' This is worth
| more than money to Canada.
"We want farmer proprietors. They
j make tho best and strongest citizens���
' and it's such citizens we're after. Hence,
' after a man has fulfilled the three
years' conditions of UBe and occupation of thc land the Dominion gives
{him, the land is his in fee simple, ab-
I solutely and for ever. He can keep it
or sell it, or do as he likes with it.
"Canada is establishing a landed
aristocracy in the truest meaning of
thc word���a landed proprietorship extending over fertile prairie-- 800 miles
long and .'100 miles wide. This in duo
time will make 240,000 square miles
of farms and homes with incomes, with
many busy lowns and cities.
"The vast number of prosperous
agiieulturisls, together with the many
manu'ac.urcrs and other industriis ne-
e.*ssary lo so gr.'ii. a t.-iritory���will
constitute a population of land Owners!
and good citiz.ns that will bo large
enough and powerful enough to. weigh
something in Canada, in th3 British
Empire, and in the world "

A Toronto Lawyer Breaks the Record
for Hard Luck
Talking of hard luck, the failure of
the Farmers Bank has brought to
light a case, that breaks the record. A
certain Toronto lawyer loaned a friend
$200, the friend pulling up five shares
of the Farmers Bank as stock security.
Thc note fell due and was not mot, so the
lawyer had the shares registered in
his own name. Then the bank blew
up, and now he is being called upon
for his double liability, so the favor
he did his friend will cost him $700
altogether.
A King'. Hobby
The late king of Siam had an extraordinary hobby���that of collecting
empty match boxes of all nations In
this connection an interesting story
is related During one of his visits
to this country the k'ng, while passing down Bond street one afternoon,
accompanied by two members of his
suite, espied an empty match box
which had been discarded by iu owner and thrown away into the middle of
the throughfarc
Without a moment's thought tht
monarch dashed into the middle of
the crowded traffic, grasped the much
coveted treasure and was nearly run
over by a passing cab The fact, however, that he wits able to add a new
specimen to his collection gathered
under such circumstances���more than
compensated h.m for the risk which
he had run
