SUBMARINE IS
LOST IN HARBOR
ACCIDENT TO GERMAN WAR VESSEL AT  KIEL
Commander and Two of Crew Are
Drowned-The Dead Were in the
Lower Compartment When the
Boat Sank���Cause  Unknown.
(Special to the Optimist)
Kiel, Germany, Jan. 18.���The submarine U. V. sank suddenly in the
harbor today with all the crew on board.
The crew numbered twenty-five all
told. When the vessel was raised three
hours later the bodies of three, including
that of thc commander were recovered.
All the others managed to escape from
the death trap in time.
Up till now no clue to the mystery has
been cabled, but the matter will be
investigated very closely. The dead
were all in the lower compartment
when the submarine sank.
Contrary to general expectation, the|
libel suit of Mr. Frank Mobley againat
Mr. S. M. Newton, editor ot the Empire, came to an end this morning. By
arrangement between the parties, neither
put in an appearance at the police
court, and the magistrate dismissed the
case.
Withdrew the Libel
It is understood that Mr. Newton
and his counsel admitted to Mr. Mobley
that they had no proper answer to the
charge, and Mr. New-top gave a written
statement to Mr. Mobley in which hi
disclaimed any intention of reflecting
on Mr. Mobley or his firm, in the
paragraph objected to. Under these
circumstances Mr. Mobley contented
to the action being dismissed, and
accordingly did not put in an appearand1
to push the case.
At the Court
At the court room this morning many
people assembled with expectancy as
the Magistrate ascended the bench
with his imposing blue bag.
"Rex vs. Newton," said the Magistrate sternly, looking up his case sheet.
Silence reigned.
Chief McCarvell looked round the
court. Nothing doing. The Chief of
Police rose to his feet.
"S. M. Newton!" he called aloud.
No reply.
ATTEMPT UPON
M. BRIAND'S LIFE
SHOT AT TWICE WHILE IN THE
CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES
Shooting Did Not Take F.fleet Assailant Waa in Gallery On Being
Arreated Waa Diacovered to Bc
Lunatic from Asylum.
(Special to the Optimist)
Paris, Jan. 18.���The Chamber of
Deputies was thrown into a wild hysterical panic today by an attempt on
the life of President Briand. Thc
attempt was a most thcatriral one, and
fortunately did not prove effective.
The President's assailant was in thc
gallery and at an unexpected moment
fired two shots a1 the ministerial bench.
The Chamber was immediately in
an uproar. Other people in the gallery
seiaed the fanatic before he could discharge another shot. He was then
handed over to the police. It was thin
learned that he had formerly been a
clerk in the courts at Bayonne.
After the attack on his life had failed
M. Briand preserved a dignified demeanour and insisted upon being unmolested by his friends who gathered
round him gratefully to congratulate
him upon his merciful escape from the
gun of thc assassin.
On the culprit being examined at
the police station he proved to bc none
other than the person who at one Unit
made an unsuccessful attempt on thc
life of the British Consul at St. Sebastian.
"S. M. Newton!" he repeated.   No
unswer.
"S. M. Newton!" he exeluiit ed -.gain,
striding to the stairway outside the
court room.   Echoes alone nspotuled.
Nothing doing.   No Newton.
"The case is adjourned," said the
Magistrate.
The Objected Reference
The paragraph which was objected
to, appeared in the Empire of December :10th, and rend: "Then consider
Alderman Mobley's past businns ion-
nection in wholesaling liquor to non-
license holders."
In his apology, Mr. Newton said that
h* did not mean intoxicating liquor,
but a tempi ranee drink for which Mr.
Mobley's firm are agents. I'e said
thai at the time he wrote the urticle
he did not mean to ronvey that intoxicating liquor was referred to, and
did not think the public would SO construe it.
Seen by an Optimist reporter, Alderman Mobley expressed himself us iatiB-
fied to end the matter with Mr. Newton's letter of explanation.
"I have no wish lo injure Mr. Nt wton,
and I do not see thr.t I could havi got
any more satisfaction by pressing the
cast? to a finish than is contained in
Mr. Newton's letter, where he utimits
that it was not intoxicating liquor he
meant," said Mr. Mobley.

to be given in prizes.
A fine example of how to railroad a
by-law through, was given at last
night's city council when Aldermun
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 consideretl in committee as a whole,
and passed its third reading in about
twenty minutes. Its final adoption
will take place at next meeting.
Alderman I'attulio thought that until
the financial statement appeared and
they saw- how they stood it was early-
enough to set thc sum of $125,CC0 for
the by-law.
The Mayor remarked that the sum
was well within the anticipated assessment of $18:1,000 on which it was based,
anil besides all 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
statement."
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 finan
cial conduct, and this he thought should
be guarded ugainst. He was opposed
to the passing of the amount clause
in the by-law which, however, wnet
through as slated.

the renewing of old acquaintances and
thc 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 ihe new comrades parted like
the members of one family.
The early portion of the evening was
devoted to the tendering of a musical
programme. Thc principals who contributed were Miss C. Barker, violin
soloist; Mr. J. Davey, tenor; Little
Miss Grey, who rendered two dainty

cornet soloist. The latter part of the

people as to thc condition in the house.
Having done so he immediately swooned.
A party of rescuers at once rushed into

���I. F. Madlem. Supreme Representative. 2t
Contrary to general expectation, the
libel suit of Mr. Frank Mobley against
Mr. S. M. Newton, editor of the Km-
pire, came to an end this morning. By
arrangement between the parties, neith"r
put in an appearance at the police
court, and the magistrate dismissed the
case.
Withdrew the Lihel
It is understood thnt Mr. Newton
and his counsel admitted to Mr. Mobley
that they had no proper answer lo the
charge, and Mr. Newtop gave a written
statement to Mr. Mobley in which ht
disclaimed any intention of reflecting
on Mr. Mobley or his firm, in the
paragraph objected to. Under these
circumstances Mr. Mobley conru-ted
lo the action being dismissed, and
accordingly did not put in an nppearuncc
to push the case.
At the Co  rt
At the court room this morning many
I .mi Mt- assembled with expectancy as
the Magistrate ascended the bench
with his imposing blue bag.
"Rex vs. Newton," said the Magistrate sternly, looking up his rase sheet.
Silence reigned.
Chief McCarvell looked round thi
court. Nothing doing. The Chief of
Folice rose to his feet.
"S. M. Newton!" he called aloud.
No reply.
"S. M. Newton!" he repealed. No
u ns\�� er.
"S. M. Newton!" be exclaimed i-gain,
striding to the stairway outside the
court room.   Echoes atone responded.
Nothing doing.   No Newton.
"The case is adjourned," said the
Magistrate.
The Objected Reference
The paragraph which was objected
to, appeared in the Empire of December .Kith, and read: "Then consider
Alderman Mobley's past husintts ion-
nection in wholesaling liquor to non-
license holders."
ln his apology, Mr. Newton said that
h- did not mean intoxicating liquor,
but a tempt ranee drink for which Mr.
Mobley's firm are agents. Fe suid
that at the lime he wrote the article
he tlitl imt mean lo convey that in-
loxicating liquor was referred to, and
did not think the public would M construe it.
Seen by an Optimist reporter, Alderman Mobley expressed himself ns intis-
fied to end the matter with Mr. Newton's letter of explanation.
"I have no wish to injure Mr. Nt -Mon,
and I do not see thr.t I could have got
any more satisfaction by pressing the
cast? to a finish than is contained in
Mr. Nowton's letter, where he admits
that it was not intoxicating liquor he
meant," said Mr. Mobley.

ACCIDENT TO GERMAN WAR VESSEL AT KIEL
Commander and Two of Crew Are
Drowned The Dead Were in the

Boat Sank    Cause  Unknown.
(Special to the Optimist)
Kiel, Germany, Jan- 18.���The submarine U. V. sank suddenly in the
harbor today with all the crew on board.
The crew numbered twenty-five all
told. When the vessel waa raised three
hours Inter the bodies of three, including
thnt of thc commander were recovered.
All the others managed to escape from
the death trap in time.
Up till now no clue to the mystery has
been cabled, but the matter will be
investigated very closely. The dead
were all in the lower compartment

SHOT AT TWICE WHILE IN THE
CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES
Shooting Did Not Take Effect Assailant Was in Gallery On Being
Arrested Was Discovered lo Bc
Lunatic from Asylum.
(Special to the Optimist)
Paris, Jan. 18.���The Chamber of
Deputies was thrown into u wild hysterical panic today by an attempt on
the life of Presitlent Briand. Thc
attempt waa a most theatrical one, antl
fortunately did not prove effective.
The President's assailam was in the
gallery and at an unexpected moment!
fired two shots a* the ministerial bench. 1
The   Chamber   was   immediately   in;
an uproar.   Other people in the gallery ;
seiacd thc fanatic before he could dis-1
charge   another  shot.    He   was  then
handed over to thc police.   It was thm
learned that he had formerly been a
clerk in the courts nt Bayonnc.
After the attack on his life had failed
M. Briand preserved a dignified demeanour and insisted upon being tin-
moles'cd by his friends who ga hered
round him gratefully to congratulate
him upon his merciful escape from the
gun of the assassin.
On the culprit being examined at
the police station he proved to be none
other than the person who at ont tinu
made an unsuccessful attempt on the
life of the British Consul at St. Sebastian.

THE LIGHT PLANT
IS GOING SOME
YOU  WANT TO SEE THAT  NEW
SMOKE STACK
Great Big Skookum Chimney Givea
a Businesa Like Look to the
Building. Roof Finished. Engine
In.    Ready for Dynamo.
Something doing out at the light
plant since thi- weather let up a bit.
Smokestack there. Big one. Sixty
feet from furnace to crown, and eighty
feet from ground level pretty nearly.
Built of sheet steel rivetted tubes.
Biggest thing of its kind in Prince
Rupert today. Makes the plant look
like going some. Foreman on the job
is proud of it and with reason. No
joke getting it on its feet. Kept the
gang guessing now and then during
the day's work. But its there now-
perpendicular as the big pine trie next
door���not so tall, but a darn sight more
useful. It's got stays on too, though
it hasn't any waist to speak of. and
way up on top it wears the very latest '
in cowls.   Some chimney, what'.'
They've roofed the machine house
now. It's till covered in, and they're
tarring it. The engine is in place on
a sure foundation, and the dynamo
foundation is ready for that purring
e'igine-room pet to sil on nice and cosy
That machine house is no shack.
It's a substantial place, lofty and pretty
skookum looking. It will last. And you
can take it that the buys are doing
their best lo get the juice oozing soon.
Mr. Burns hasn't a great deal of use
for the Optimist artist's delicately
worded wawpoo about him, but it's
quite evident that he's staying with
that light plant taking good care that
it's going to be a reliable rather than
it rushed up job. And that's what the
light consumers want anyway.

"Don'ts for Young Wives
Don't take other people into your
confidence if your John offends you,"
says Margaret E. Sangstor in Woman's
Home Companion for January.    "Ne"
lither  your  mother,  your  aunt,  your
college chum, your dearest girl friend
nor the agreeable stranger whom you
mei  the other day should be the recipient of your grievances if you have
them.    Your home should be a sanctuary  inviolate from  profanation, and
remember, that it is profaned when you
complain to someone else of John's ill
temper, his neglect or his parsimony.
I know this is a very little don't, but
the instant  a  wife  permits herself to
complain   of   her   husband   to   people
beyond  her door, she breaks down a
barrier  and  makes   a  way  for every
sort  of  trouble  to  enter the field  of
home.
"Don't be so meek and spiritless thai
you suffer in silence while you spoil
your husband by letting him drift into
the role of a domestic despot. Mrs
Henry De la Pasture in her novel "The
Tyrant," shows the eclipse cf gaiety
and the crucifixion of family love which
follow in the wake when a husband 's
overbearing and a wife overgentle.
"Whatever you do, don't nag or sulk.
A wife who goes about with the air
of a martyr winter-kills her happiness.
Don't be inconsolable when your husband tarries late at the otlice and
keeps the dinner waiting. Don't ob- j
ject to this bringing home guests unannounced. If they arrive with him
unexpectedly, don't apologize for the
house or the meal or the children or
anything else. Put on extra plates
and cups and let them share 'pot luck.'
"Don't have bills, if you can help
yourself. Pay as you go, and do persuade your husband to give you a
definite housekeeping allowance from
the beginning of your housekeeping.
Don'l be afraid of the maid. Thousands
of us are in awe of this personage, and
she has unfortunately discovered it and
behaves accordingly."
DRY GOOD!

The Place for Women
Constant and BOlentn repetition of the
platitude, "The place for woman is the
home," is getting monotonous, theologians, anti-suffragists, continually emphasize it.
Of course the place for woman is the
home. Nobody denies it. Least of all
do women deny it. If there is anything that every woman wantB it is
a home. But at the lowest calculation
there are fifty thousand women in Massachusetts who have no home, unless a
room in a lodging house may be called
a   home.     Economic   conditions   have

DAILY COOKING RECIPE
Fudge Cake
Cream together one cupful of sugar
and two-thirds of a cupful of butter; add
one cupful of milk. Stir in lightly two
and one-half cupfuls of Hour, into which
one heaping spoonful of baking powder
has been sifted. Then stir in one-fourth
cupful of melted chocolate. Add one-
half cupful of English walnuts, broken
up coarsely, and lastly three eggs, lieat-
en separately. For the fudge frosting
use one and one-half tablespoonfuls of
butter and one-half cupful of unsweetened powdered cocoa, one and one-
fourth cupful of confectioners' sugar, a
few grains of salt, and one-fourth oup-
i ful of milk. Heat lo boiling point and
I boil eight minutes. Remove from fire
and lieat until creamy. Add one-half
'teaspoonful of vanilla and then pour
��� over cake to a depth of one-quarter inch
Practical Household Hints
To get belter res-ills from a hot water
bottle, wrap it in a sofi cloth wrung out
in hot water. This will give a steaming
heat, and is much more effective for
neuralgia, etc., than lhe dry heat of thc
bottle as ordinarily applied.

that the right arm might be (icrfcotly
free. This up|H*r part was the plaid,
which was used as a covering for the
shoulders and body in wet weather,
and when the use of both arms was
required it was fastened across the
breast with a brooch, often curiously
enriched. A brooch was also used to
fasten the plaid on thc left shoulder.
To attire himself in thc belted plaid
required on the part of the Highlander
no small amount of dexterity. The
usual way was to lay it on the floor
and after carefully arranging the folds
to lie down upon it and then buckle
it on. The lower end was fastened
at the right hip. The utility of such
a dress in the highlands is obvious,
for the plaid rendered the man indifferent
to storms and prepared to pass a night
in the open air in the most inclement
weather, while the loose undergarment
enabled him to wade rivers or ascend
mountains with equal case. It was this
.peculiarly adapted to the warrior, thc
1 hunter and the shepherd.
A sweet biscuit can be made with ordinary biscuit dough with the addition
of chopped dates. Roll the dough quite
thin, spread with plenty of soft butter
and t hen put on a thick layer of chopped
dates. On top place another layer of
dough and cut out with small cutter.
Bake in a hot oven.

THE LIGHT PLANT

SMOKE STACK
Great Big Skookum Chimney Caivea
a Business Like Look to the
Building. Roof Finished. Engine

Something doing out at the light
plant since thfc weather lit up a bit.
Smokestack there. Uig one. Sixty
feet from furnace to crown, and eighty
feet from ground level pretty nearly.
Built of sheet steel rivetted tubes.
Biggest thing of its kind in Prince
Rupert today. Makes the plant look
like going some. Foreman on the job
is proud of it and with reason. No
joke getting it on its feet. Kept the
gang guessing now and then during
the day's work. But its there now
perpendicular as the big pine tree next
door -not so tall, but a darn sight more
useful. It's got stays on too, though
it hasn't any waist to speak of. and
way up on top it wears the very latest
in cowls.   Some chimney, what'.'
They've roofed the machine house
now. It's all covered in. and they're
tarring it. The engine is in place on
a sure foundation, and the dynamo
foundation is ready for that purring
engine-room pet to sit on nice and cosy
That machine house is no shack.
It's a substantial place, lofty and pretty
skookum looking. It will laat. And you
can take il that the buys are doing
their best io gel the juice oozing soon.
Mr. Burns hasn't a great deal of use
for the Optimist artist's delicately
worded wawpoo about him, but it's
quite evident that he's staying wilh
that light plant taking good care that
it's going to be a reliable rather than
it rushed up job. And that's whin the
light consumer!, want anyway.

The Place for Women
Constant and solemn repetition of the  Boots
platitude, "The place for woman is the
home," is getting monotonous, theologians,  anti-siiffragists,  continually  emphasize it.
Of course the place for woman is the
home. Nobody denies it. Least of all
do women deny it. If there is anything that every woman wants it is
a home. But at the lowest calculation
there are fifty thousand women in Massachusetts who have no home, unless a
room in a lodging house may be called
a home. Economic conditions have 1
driven them into the factory, mill, shop |
and store.    They have not  left their j

and adjusted to the left shoulder, so
that the right arm might be perfectly
free* This up|>er part was the plaid,
which was used as a covering for thc
shoulders and body in wet weather,
and when thc use of both arms was
required it was fastened across the
breast with a brooch, often curiously
enriched. A brooch was also used to
fasten the plaid on the left shoulder.
To attire himself in the belted plaid
required on thc part of the Highlander
no small amount of dexterity. The
usual way was to lay it on thc floor
and after carefully arranging the folds
to lie down upon it and then buckle
it on. The lower end was fastened
at the right hip. The utility of such
a dress in the highlands is obvious,
for the plaid rendered the man indifferent

Porcher lsiand Shooting Accident
Detailed. Injured Man's Neighbors Advise Medical Attention.
Wound Looks Ugly and Frost
Bite Is Suspected.
Some anxiety is being felt amongst
the ranchers on Porcher lsiand regarding the condition of Charles Coburn
who was accidentally shot there the
other day while out hunting.
Coburn is a hardy fellow, and from
thc first made light of the wound in the
calf of his leg. He will not have a
doctor saying that he hus been shot
before and recovered without medical
aid. But the flesh wound in his leg
caused by a softnosed bullet is pretty
bad where the bullet emerged and as
Coburn was brought six miles by boat
in keen frosty weather his neighbors
fear the possibility of frost bite which
may cost Coburn his leg if not his life.
Meanwhile he is being carefully attended
to by \V. Warner whose rifle is responsible for the hurt.
A dog belonging to Coburn was
the cause of the accident. It leapt
over a log and thinking it was a deer
Warner tired. Coburn escaped the
second barrel by dodging behind a
tree. His comrade did everything
possible to assist him, bringing him
to his own house by launch.
Charles Coburn is the owner of the
gasoline launch "Kay M. Hone" which
is well known down the waterfront.
The launch is stranded at present on
the beach where the injured man was
landed but will bc looked after until he
recovers.

ON WAY TO NAAS
Gold  and  Silver  Clatma   There  to;
Develop This Spring
Notes and Comments
Motto for Alderman Smith - "a cut in wages is the most unkindcsl cut
of all."
I'rince Kupert will soon be in a position to sympathize wilh Skeena in the
loss of its member.
In the meantime, Manson of Comox is doing his best to fill the bill. According
to Parker Williams he has "now become st, tame SI to feed out of Premier Mc-
Uriil.-'s hand."
If there la anything thai is calculated to hurry the member for Skeenu up
il is (he report of the wuy in which his namesake ami understudy from Comox
is trying to eul him out.
Wonder whether Alderman Smith will bring in a notice of motion to make
a em in the Mayor's wages for the time he will be way looking ufter his other
job a, Victoria.    Consistency is a gem.
.luck Huggard, at one time associated
with the Provincial Police I-'orce, now
interested in mining, is in I'rince Rupert
today staying at the Premier. Mr.
Huggard is one of the pioneers of Stewart
and has some promising gold and silver
claims staked on the Nans Kiver. He
is now proceeding to the Naas with
four men and supplies for the spring
so that work can commence immediately
the conditions warrant it.

| HUMORISTS |
Amcng the advertisements in an
English paper there recently appeareP
the following: "The gentleman who
found a purse with money in Burlord
street is requested to forward it to the
address of the loser, as he was recognized."
A few days later this reply was in
serted: "Thc recognized gentleman who
picked up a purse in JBurford street requests the loser to cull at his house."
"How about this barefoot act you've
booked for the op'ry house? Some of
the leading citizens are a little worried
about it."
"We have suppressed all the objectionable features."
"That's just it. We was ateerd you
would."
"Prisoner at the bar," said the portly, pompous and florid magistrate, "you
are charged with stealing a pig, a very
serious offence in this district. There
has been a great deal of pig stealing
and I shall make an example of you or
none of us will be safe."
"Now," said the architect, who was
putting the finishing touches upon Mr.
Nurich's new residence, "what color do
you prefer for the parlor decorations?"
"Oh, they've got to be red," replied
Nurich. "My wife's got a red plush
photograph album that always sets on
thc parlor table."
He inserted the key in the keyhole
of the door with dilliculty, but managed
to crawl upstairs without awakening his
wife, he thought. At the breakfast
table next morning one look at her reproachful fi'ce told him he was wrong.
"I'm sorry 1 married you," she ex
claimed. "You're a brute. I saw you
on the corner hugging the lamppost at
two o'clock this morning."
"Why Mary!" expostulated the penitent John. "Don't you think that's a
bit unfair? Who'd a-thought you'd
ever be jealous of a lamppost!"

HAS LONG TALK
SPEAKS FOR HOUR AND A HAl F
IN   ANSWER   TO   CRITICS
Explains \\ hat Government Has
Done in Connection With Ensuring Safety in Mines Also Deals
With  Railway Situation.
(Special to thi- Optimisti
Victoria, -Ian. 18.��� Premier McBride
took lhe Moor of the House today and
spoke for an hour and a half in reply
to the criticism offered. He followed
Mr. Brewster who roundly attacked the
government policy.
Referring to the speech of Mr. Parker
Williams yesterday hi- stated thai the
only point deserving of a reply was ihe
s'.a-errent   thai   the   government   had
done nothing during the year to ensure
the safety  of  men   who  earned  their
living  in  the  coal  mines.     It   was a I
suiticient answer to his mind 'hat during
the year the government had equipped
��� all mines or at leasi a great  number
with   the   Draeger   safety   apparatus.
More than lhat it was the government
' officials who  were  invariably   first  to
assist in the work that tended to avoid
disaster in the mines.   They were alive
to the subject and were not  ignoring
it as had been suggested by the government critics.
In regard to the criticism hurled at
himself and his government in connection with the Canadian Northern
he said it had not yet been stated when
the construction operations would start
on Vancouver Island. It would have
been a very easy matter, he said, to
have the company undertake to build
two or three lints. That was not his
policy. He wanted something permanent. He also announced that the
surveyors had changed their plans and
were selecting s different route.

Vancouver, Jan. 17.���Two boys aged
seventeen and eighteen employed in a
city office framed up a simple scheme I
of   robbery   for   the   benefit   of   their |
employer.    Locating themselves in the
office w hen no one else was round one'
tied the other up to a chair and gagged
and uound him, and then relieved the',
safe   of   $150.    Later   on,   when   the1
employer  arrived  he  found   his  office ���
boy sprawling on ihe lioor trying vainly j
to   un.io  ihe  cords  lhat   buund   him.
The lad smartly shot off the story lhat
while he was performing his work two
men entered ihi office, seized and bound
Um  before  he could  cry  out   or  offer I
any  resistance,  and  then  rubbed  the!
safe.
To the employer's shrewd mind the!
story did not ring true so he had both '
j boys removed to the police station. |
j The influence of the station told upon'
their nerves wilh the result that they i
| confessed to the simple litth subterfuge. |
