(Special to the Optimist)
London, Jan. ".���The recently deposed young King Manuel of Portugal

Alliambra Theatre by his former mistress,

Swing her some distance from him
he rushed to her side to speak to her
with true Hyronic gallantry, but thc
woman merely turned her head away.
Manuel wurmed lo the situation and
persisted. This brought about the
climax, and the last chapter to the full

Wharf
Practically all the freight in the G. T.
I'- sheds has been removed to its temporary quarters north of Centre street
on the waterfront and it is likely that
the offices will be cleaned out also in a

to the lifting of the sheds and removing
them north so that the work of planking
the wharf can be proceeded with. At
the present time that work is right up
to the office doors of the G. T. P. shipping department and the removal will
have to be made before any more planking ran be done.

SOLICITOR REFUTES CHARGES
After (Hearing Mr. Manson Wobble on the Labor Question, Labor Candidate
Montgomery Declares He Will Vote for Aid. Mobley���Prefers
Straight Refusal to Political Evasions
Another great Mayoral and Aldermanie meeting was held in the Empress
Theatre last night in the interest of
Alderman Mobley for Mayor und the
aldermanie candidates supporting his
platform. Aid. Naden was in the
chair. The hit of the evening was
made by Mr. W. H. Montgomery, the
independent labor candidate, who,
while he did not subscribe to the platform of any of the Mayoral candidates
in the field was going to vote for Aid.

and must exercise it, and second, because Alderman Mobley had the courage of his  principles    and  convictions
Criticising a  Tribute
Mayor Stork lead the way with the
speeches in a breezy speech characteristic of him. Ha te-rarted tin-criticism
of Mr. Manson as an excellent tribute
to the efforts of the council during their
term of office. That gentleman has
had very little to say against the policy
of the Council. In fact with the -exception of the difference of opinion regarding the period for which the money
should have been borrowed from the
bank he had no criticism to offer at all,
and in other important matters he had
announced  his  intention  of   following
to come out and say specifically  where | out the pr0KrBnlrm. |���;,|  down   by  the
he stood in regard  to  the demand  of
the Prince  Rupert  Industrial Associa
tion. Mr. Mobley had turned the proposition down definitely and straight,
whereas Mr. Manson declined to com-
m c himself one way or another. It
was a good meeting with just enough
of the noisy element to keep the proceeding free from dullness.
City Solicitor Speaks Out
An unusual feature of the meeting
was the defence which City Solicitor
W. E. Williams made in defence of the
charges of incompetence that had been
hurled at his firm by some of the machine candidates. Avoiding any temptation to touch oncompaign matters, the
solicitor gave a straight denial to the
specific charges of giving misleading
advice, and the meeting was with him.
His terse, direct and manly defence
went home, and when he referred to
the false charges as cowardly to bring
against two young professional men,
the meeting cheerer him loudly. Once
when Aid. Hilditch interrupted to say
that "This is sil a political matter,"
the speaker gave the quick retort, "Yes
it is to you perhaps." The point waa
not lost on the meeting.
present council for the incoming year.
In regard to his absence from the city
which had been made capital of he explained that when he was away on the
first occasion it waa in connection with
city business solely, and that on the
second occasion when he was away for
a fortnight and a few days, city affairs
were again partly the cause.
An Example to Follow
In connection with that phase of the
Mayoral election he pointed to the withdrawal of Mr. W. S. Benson from the
Aldermanie contest. Mr. Benson had
withdrawn because he did not think he
would be able to devote sufficient time
to the exercise of the City's business to
justify him in seeking the suffrages of
the people. Mayor Stork commended
that policy to Mr. Manson.
The Mayor also referred to the G. T.
P. question. An embargo had been
placed upon it formerly but as it was
evident that they would discuss it he
thought they might go into the matter
even more fully. He reminded them
also of thc manner in which Mr. Man-
son had neglected the interests of the
city prior to incorporation.
"Nothing   Doing"
They had received a bill for $1119,000
for the work done in the city prior to
incorporation. They were charged
with surveys and even with photographs of Woodworth Lake. He
thought that if the city wus going to
pay for the work done, such as the
reservoir, etc , he thought they Bhould
get possession of them. Already they
had paid very well for these things and
they were likely to continue doing so
for some time. In regard to the G. T.
P. settlement he thought that if the
Board of Trade had not precipitated
matters they would have found it easier
to have effected a better settlement
than they were likely to get now. In
connection with the basis of agreement he criticised Alderman Smith who
had said that he would give a quarter
of his property to have the matter settled. As far as the Mayor was concerned in that direction he assured
them there was nothing doing.
Mr. Manson's  Reception
There was noise when Mr. Manson
rose to speak. To describe it as applause would not be strictly true,
cheers there were. There were also
howls.
Mr. Marson paid the necessary tribute to Aid. Mobley and his supporters
for the opportunity, etc., etc., and got
into his stride. He referred to Mayor
Stork's absences from the council. He
stood corrected on the point and would
not quibble over it, he said, Mayor
Stork had not been seven weeks absent
from duty in seven months.
Referring to his own candidature,
Mr. Manson said that he would be more
than able to make up the time lost

aspirants to obtain from them a definite
opinion for or against.
There was some discussion of the
terms of the resolution before its adoption was moved, and opinions were
vigorously expressed that the 37 1-2
cent rate per hour is inadequate. A
proposal thut the names of the candidates
with their position in reference to the
resolution be printed for distribution
on election day so that workers may
know how they stand, was approved.
Revolutionary Spirit
A European but non-British worker
spoke strongly aguinst the idea of being
in uny way dependent upon the promises
of the candidate. "If we want 45 cents
an hour, let us rather strike for it," he
suid. Other workers spoke more cautiously realizing that the workers' declaration of war must not be rushed into
headlong.
Under Dog Must Wiggle
"We are under dogs as yet," said
a comrade, "and the under dog must
wiggle to get out. What we want to j
do now is simply to advertise ourj
attitude towards the wage rati*, and get
these candidates' views so that we may
know for whom to vote. Later if need
be we may strike, and strike hard."
Cries of "Hear! Hear!" and "We'v
always got the club!" greeted this.
The speakers who showed a tendency
to go into discussion of the advisability
ol u strike were ruled out of order, and
the resolution went through.
Thirty New Recruits
At the outset of the meeting thirty-
new members were enrolled for the
association, and arrangements were discussed for the securing of a permanent
hall the matter being in the hands of a
committee.
Ivor is secretary and A. 0. Morse acted
as recording secretary for the evening.
A vote of thanks to the Empire for
services rendered the lubor cause, was
passed, and the attitude of the Optimist
was enquired about, the Chairman
stating that he had been fairly dealt
with in regard to a letter to the editor
of the present Optimist management.
Copies of thc Association's constitution were distributed and the initation
fee of 50 cents and monthly subscription
of the same amount was announced for
the benefit of intending members.

with Burvcys and even with photographs of Woodworth Lake. He
thought that if the city was going to
pay for thc work done, such as the
reservoir, etc , he thought they should
get possession of them. Already they
had paid very well for these things and
they were likely to continue doing so
for some time. In regard to thc G. T.
P. settlement he thought that if the
Board of Trade had not precipitated
matters they would have found it easier
to have effected a better settlement
than they were likely to get now. In
connection with the basis of agreement he criticised Alderman Smith who
had ssid that he would give a quarter
of hia property to have the matter settled. As far as the Mayor was concerned in that direction he assured
them there was nothing doing.
Mr. Manson's  Reception
There was noise when Mr. Manson
rose to speak. To describe it as applause would not be strictly true,
cheers there were. There were also
howls.
Mr. Mar son paid the necessary tribute to Aid. Mobley and his supporters
for the opportunity, etc., etc., and got
into his stride. He referred to Mayor
Stork's absences from the council. He
stood corrected on the point and would
not quibble over it, he said, Mayor
Stork had not been seven weeks absent
from duty in seven months.
Referring to his own candidature,
Mr. Manson said that he would be more
than able to make up the time lost

Scotch Marriage Laws
Scotland has long been noted for its
easy marriage laws, of which the lovesick lads and lassies of the more punctilious south have taken the advuntuge
for generations.
In Scotland there are two classes of j there are who do.
valid marriage, "regular" and "irregu-;    it  js not  .,  pretty habit, you  will

Interest,    however,    centers   chielly
UWind Scotch "regular" marriages, of
which there are three kinds recognized
by law.
In the first class is "marriage by dec-
. laratinn or acknowledgement."   Here the
. contracting parties simply declare, either
I verbally or in writing, before two
witnesses, that they take each other
for husband and wife, or that they have
1 already done so.
A good deal of nonsense has been
written about these marriages by declaration. Many a romance has been
made to hinge on such a plot as a couple
playing in amateur theatricals going
through a mock irregular marriage, only
to find themselves tied up hard and
fast for life. This is mere moonshine
for the validity of a marriage by dec-
j laration depends on the intention and
free consent of the parties to he married.
As  the   declaration   may   be   ma e
verbally, and the marriage need not be
I registered, it is clear that if the witnesses die there may be difficulty in
establishing the marriage. It would
seem that if a villain marries a girl by
declaration and grows tired of her he

Now that the return of the Liberal
Party to power in Great Britain hat-
taken place, and the introduction of n
Home Rule bill for Ireland has been
promised, the following recent article
from the pen of Mr. John Redmond,
the noted Irish leader, is of exceptional
interest lis showing some of the griev-
ances of the Irish people, and the scope
of the Home Rule they have been
agitating for:
What Ireland Wants
"Whut Ireland wants is the restoration
of responsible government, neither more
' nor less. The Irish demand is, in plain
und popular language, that the govern-1
1 ment of every purely Irish affair shall
i be controlled by the public opinion of
Ireland, and by that alone. We do not
seek any alteration of the constitution
or supremacy of the Imperial Parliament. We ask merely to be permitted
to take our place in the ranks of those
other portions of thc British Empire���
some twenty-eight in number���which,
in their own purely local affairs, are
governed by free representative institutions of their own."
In addition to the historic title to
self government Mr. Redmond says:
"Her demand, however, also has its
root in the failure of England to govern
her���a failure admitted by men of all
parties, and, indeed, incapable of denial
in face of the patent facts of the case.
"What greater test of good government is to bc found than the test of
population? In Ireland since 1841 the
population has diminished by fifty per
cent. In 1845 Ireland had three times
as many people as Scotland and half
as many as England. In fact, Ireland
had one third of the whole population
of the United Kingdom. In sixty years
her population has gone down by four
million. Ninety per cent of those who
left her shores were between the ages of
ten und forty-five.
The Hated English Poor Law
"Let me give a remarkable and, indeed, dramatic example of the kind of
misgovcrnment under which Ireland
sufTers as a consequence of the present
system.
"I know of no more pressing need in
Ireland today than the reform of our
Poor Law system. I know of no reform
upon which all classes and creeds in
Ireland are more united. That system
is extravagant, inefficient, and demoralizing.   The cost is enormous.
"There are, in the thirty-two counties
of Ireland, one hundred and fifty-nine
unions���one hundred and fifty-nine workhouses���and there are inmates in these
workhouses numbering 45,195, inmates
of all kinds and descriptions. Now,
within these workhouses all sorts and
kinds of inmates are crowded together
under the same roof���the sick, the aged
and infirm, children, the helpless mothers
of young children, the insane, the casuals
and tramps, and other able-bodied
paupers���all crowded together in the
same institution, and all tainted more
or less with the hateful stigma of the
workhouse pauper. So far as the larger
number of those inmates are concerned,
that is a horrible outrage. By far the
larger number are the sick, the aged
and infirm, and the children, on all of
whom it is an outrage and a 'disgrace
to our civilization that any taint of the
workhouse should be-put; and, of the
whole number of 45,195 in 1905, there
were only 4,667 who might be described
as casuals or tramps, or able-bodied
paupers whose admission was due to
destitution, or to such idleness and
laziness as led to destitution.
Therefore, only between a ninth and a
tenth of all the inmates of these workhouses come from classes similar to
those for whom the workhouse system
was first founded in England. It is
an outrage  and a  disgrace that the
ninth or one tenth of the number of
inmates should be extended to the sick
poor, to the aged and infirm, and to thc
innocent children who are herded into
these institutions. The poor Irishman or
woman would almost, sooner die of
starvation or disease than go into the
Irish workhouses. The system is un-
suited to Ireland. It is extravagant, it
is demoralizing, and it is hated by the
Irish people.
The Home Rule Movement
"The great outstanding issue really
is what remedy will remove the evil,
what will satisfy the Irish people, or,
in other words, what exactly does
Ireland want.
"O'Connell demanded Repeal of the
Union. Isaac Butt, in 1873, proposed a
Federal Union. This was in substance
accepted by Parliament and Gladstone
in 1886, and remains the demand of
the Irish National party to this moment.
O'Connell's demand for a simple Repeal of the Union, which meant the
revival of the Sovereign Co-ordinate
Parliament of Grattan, was given up in
favor of the creation of a Statutory
Subordinate Parliament, leaving the
supremacy of the present Imperial
Parliament untouched, such subordinate
Parliament to be invested wilh strictly
limited powers over purely Irish local
affairs, as in the case of the numerous
local parliaments which already exist
within the British Empire.
Mr. Gladstone's Efforts
"Mr. Gladstone's proposal in 1886
was to establish a subordinate Irish
Parliament and an Irish Executive for
the management and control of Irish
affairs, reserving to the Imperial Parliament the following subjects: the Crown,
peace or war, the army, navy, militia,
volunteers, defence, etc., foreign and
colonial relations, dignities, titles of
honor, treason.trade, post office, coinage.
Besides these exceptions, the Irish
Parliament was forbidden to make any
laws respecting (inter alia) the endowment of religion, or in restraint of
educational freedom, or relating to the
customs or excise.
"In 1893, Gladstone introduced his
second Home Rule Bill, the chief difference between it and his first one being
that he proposed to retain Irish Members
at Westminster. On this point Ireland
is willing to accept whichever alternative
England prefers.
"What Ireland Wants"
"Here, then, is 'what Ireland wants':
'Legislative and executive control of all
purely Irish affairs, subject to the
supreme authority of the Imperial
Parliament."
"In other words, we want an Irish
Parliament, with an Executive responsible to it, created by act of the Imperial
Parliament, and charged with the management of purely Irish affairs (land, education, local government, transit, labor,
industries, taxation for local purposes,
law and justice, police, etc.,) leaving to
the Imperial Parliament, in which
Ireland would probably continue to be
represented, but in smaller numbers,
the management, just as at present,
of all Imperial affairs���army, navy,
foreign relations, customs, Imperial taxation, matters pertaining to the Crown,
the colonies, and all those other questions
which are Imperial and not local in
their nature, the Imperial Parliament
also retaining an overriding supreme
authority over the new Irish legislature,
such as it possesses today over the
various legislatures in Canada, Australia, South Africa, and other portions
of the Empire.
"This is 'what Ireland wants.' When
she has obtained it, a new era of prosperity and contentment will arise. As
happened when Lord Durham's policy

stigma which rightly attaches to one erent races and creeds will join hands
to promote the well-being of their common
country. Responsibility, thrown for
the first time for over a century upon
the people, will have the same effect
in Ireland as elsewhere. Trust in
the people will effect as startling and
dramatic a transformation of feeling
and sentiment in Ireland aa in South
Africa. Those of us who have been
struggling in this cause for thirty yean
are thankful to feel that at last the
fighting is practically over, and that all
that remains is to settle the exact terms
on which the Treaty of Peace is to be

BITTER   CREEK
(IN
THE  PORTLAND  CANAL  DISTRICT)
The mineral wealth of the district surrounding Bitter Creek Townsite cannot be estimated for the reason that no adequate
measure can be taken of the undeveloped mineral resources. It is generally conceded by mining experts that the area surrounding
Bitter Creek Townsite is the richest in metals of all the areas in Northern British Columbia. For several years prospecting has
been carried on in the Portland Canal District, but not until recently has even a partail measure been taken of the vast mineral
wealth that lies buried among its mountains. Bitter Creek Townsite occupies a pivotal position in this remarkably rich mining
section. It is surrounded by claims that will ultimately pay millions of dollars to their owners. When the big rush starts next
spring into this district the price of these lots will increase in value very materially.    They can be bought now for

\ HOLIDAY EXPLOIT NEARLY ENDS
IN TERRIBLE DEATH
Harry Lever Embedded for Two
Hours in Mud While Shooting in
the Lake Near Deluaion Bay���
Saved by Timber.
Harry M. Lever, a well known citizen
of Prince Rupert while staying on
Digby Island for a little shooting during
the holidays had a remarkable experience the other day. Taking his gun
he set out from the station at 9:30 in
the morning and hit the trail for the
lake which is situated just at the head
of Delusion Ray. The lake appears
to be only a matter of two feet deep
at this point and having shot a mallard
he waded in after it, but to his dismay
suddenly found himself being slowly
engulfed in thc soft and treacherous
bottom. All his efforts to free himself
proved futile. They only sunk him
deeper in the death trap.
Lever remained in this desperate
predicament for over two hours. He
shouted at the top of his voice for assistance but the cries of the seagulls
hovering around him drowned the
effect of his appeal. When he had almost
resolved within himself that he waa
lost a piece of loose timber drifted
toward him. He made one more frantic
effort and had the satisfaction of reahing
it. Then proceeded a manful struggle
against the succulent forces in which
his body was embedded.
Eventually he extricated himself from
the mud and made his way ashore in
an exhausted condition. On reaching
the station again late in the afternoon
he waa put to bed by the wireless
station staff and attended to. He has
completely recovered now.
MARKED CARDS
WERE FOUND
IN  DELMONT  ZARELLl'S  HOI) E
ON COMOX AVENUE
Zarelli Denies All Knowledge of
Them, but Admits That He Waa in'
Trouble Over Gambling at Dawson.
���Astonishing Admissions.
During the trial of Delmont Zarelli
yesterday, on a charge of keeping a
gaming house on Comox avenue, some
astonishing admissions were made by
the accused in answer to a stiff examination by Mr. A. M. Manson, who
appeared to prosecute on behalf of the
city. Asked as to marked cards Zarelli
I de-dare that he had never played with
marked cards in his life. He had seen
them, however.
Asked had he ever been in Dawson
he said , yes, for four days in 1906.
Chief McCarvell was there too. Accused said the chief was doing a little
card business there too. Accused was
before the court at Dawson charged
with gambling. He was convicted of
vagrancy there and sentenced to go
on the woodpile. He was not ashamed
to say so. He had been sent out of
Dawson after sentence because he was
ill.
He had been charged with another
offence at Douglas, Alaska, and at
Victoria he had been fined for having
a long knife about him which he said
he had bought to take to Nome where
he might need it to carve meat.
Shown a card by Mr. Manson he
admitted that the card was marked
in the same way as those found in the
garni- he was in at Dawson. There was
some amusement caused by the efforts
of Mr. Patmore to discover what tie
mark was. Mr. Patmore said he could
tell the face of the card by feeling
the back, but did not detect the real
marking.
Continuing his statement accused
repeated that he was there lo tell the
truth. He had no idea how the marked -
cards came to be found in his house
by the olficir sent there by the Chief,
but anyone with a grievance against
him might have put them there. They
were not the cards used in the poker
game referred to. His house might be
turned upside down without anything
suspicious being found in it.
Accused declared that he had been
| offered up to $1000 to plead guilty
of the charge against him, naming Frank
Bowness, Jack Collins, "Pegleg" White,
and Ed. O'Shaughnessy in this connection. He maintained, however, that
he was absolutely innocent, and intended to face his trial and speaking
the truth abide by the issue confident
lhat his innocence would be established.
The cas  was adjourned un il Monday.

A Diplomat on Hot Bricks
The whole political character of Mr. William Manson was expressed in his
answer last night to the demands of the Prince Rupert Industrial Association, for
an expression of the candidates' position in regard to the demand for a minimum
wage-rate of 45 cents an hour. The question was a simple one. It was direct.
Nothing could well be clearer. The candidates were all warned of the question
some time in advance of the meeting by the evening papers.   There was no excuse
for a wobble.
But what's bred in the bone comes out in the llesh. Several years of service
as a government servant and politician have quite unfitted Mr. Manson from
giving tt direct answer to any question. Just as he duped both parties in the local
option contest by giving, each of (heir opponents reasons for thinking that he was
on their side, so he felt impelled to execute a wobble on the labor question. He would
look into it. He would enquire about it. Plentifully buttressed with ifs to preserve himself from damage, he executed a most ungraceful verbal somersault.
The name "stradsllo-the-fenec Manson" bestowed upon him by his colleague,
Mr. S. M. Newton, was not awarded without cause.
It is the tragedy of the wobbler, that nobody wants him. After trying to
please both parties, both reject him. It cannot be avoided. Nature abhors weakness and lavishes herself on strength. We all prefer the strong man who denies
us to the weak man who knows not hus own mind.  The strong man is still king.
Mr. Manson's reputation as a "stand-patter" and his inability to stand up
and light for his electorate are well established. His silence in the Houe when the
city's charter was being mutilitated, his silence when the Tsimpsean charter went
through���not to use a harsher term���and his silence over thc grievances of the
Queen Charlotte Islanders, have lost him many friends. Last night he had the
mortification of hearing Labor candidate W. H. Montgomery declare that his
own vote would go in favor of Alderman Mobley who had the courage to declare
himself against the Industrial Association's demand, rather than to Mr. Manson
who wanted to hand out the usual diplomatic answer of the crafty shifty politician.
It was a well merited rebuke which Mr. Montgomery delivered in saying
that he preferred the man who would declare himself against his demands rather
than a man who could not give a straight answer to a straight question.
The attitude of Mr. Manson on the labor question is his attitude on every queatio .
It is the attitude of the weakling.
The affairs of the municipality are much safer in the hands of a business man
of character and determination like Alderman Mobley. His worth haa been trie ,
and is proved. He has no party chief to consult in order to find out how to answer
a simple question. He is harnessed to no machine. He has nothing but the business
welfare of the city io serve. He has the confidence of the electors, and the strength
of character lis carry oul his undertakings.
Reasons for Electing Alderman Mobley
He is not tied up lo any ps.lnis-.il party.
He is a representative citizen.
He will be on the job twelve months in thc year.
His record is clean.
He is conversant with the work of the coun il.
He has the confidence of his colleagues.
He has a re I interest in thc city's progress.
The corporations have no string on him.
i        He is a man who means what he says.
He has the courage of his convictions.
He can best carry on the work of the old council.
He has already had ex|ierience as acting-Mayor of the city.
||       He has always stood (or the eight hour, $3 day.
He was one who fought the Government to get the Woodworth water supply.
He lakes a strong stand on the G. T. P. assessment.
He fought for the square dee) clause in the Liquor License By-law.
He will save Prince Rupert from the maw of the corporations.
" Methinks the Lady," Etc.
The maxim that "what no gentleman should say, no gentleman need answer"
iapplies also to newspapers.   Thai is why we ignore our evening contemporary
!jwhen il becomes slanderous and abusive.
i       But the remarks of its editor at   Tuesday's meeting call for comment.   They
I Involve the honor and welfare of the political party which that journal is wooing.
When our brother editor slates that he rofuscd to sell the Empire to the eom-
jpany of I'rince Rupert business men who later acquired i he Optimist he tells
���no untruth.   He merely suppresses a portion of the truth.
The whole truth is as follows.   Mr. Newton while declining to sell his plant
joffered to sell something less than half the stock of the  Empire.   He offered, if
Ithis were done, to enter into what he called a "working arrangement," whereby
lithe Empire would retain himself as editor, and he would see to it that the paper
jwaa run to please the interests of the minority stockholders.
From a business point of view, there was nothing wrong in this proposition
jiof Mr. Newton's. We would not be misunderstood as suggesting that his proposition was not commercially correct. But when Mr. Newton proclaims on public
platforms that effort swerc made to buy him up, and that he could not be bought,
ithe full facts are of interest. It was because Mr. Newton declined to sell his plant
jwithout selling himself wilh it that thc proposition was not sonsidered.
i Buying a newspaper plant is one thing; buying the services of a political
turncoat is another. The negotiations with the Empire were very properly broken
off, and arrangements made to buy another newspaper plant. A notification
of the change of ownership was made in due course in the editorial column of thc
Optimist.
Whatever our opinion of thc morals of thc Empire's proposition We were

not free to discuss it. It was a private matter and not open to comment. But
the Empire had chosen to drag the matter before the public in order to show how
loyal it ia.
If the incident open9 the eyes of some of the Empire's political friends to
the dangerous character of its loyalty, the incident may do some good. We should
be sorry to see them lean for support on a bruised reed.
Notes and Comments
And he never reported one to the police.   Looks suspicious.
However it gave the citizens a chance to see the kind of men who are supporting
the machine.
There will be no moving pictures at the Mobley meetings. The candidates
are able to make speeches.
One interruptor said he could take a speaker into thirty blind pigs in half
an hour.   Is he a frequenter?   How does he get his stand in.
It was a bad precedent for aldermanie candidates Smith and Kerr to lead
the interruptors al the Mobley meeting last night.   It invites reprisal.
If Alderman Smith had been as busy on council nights, as he was last nig t
in interrupting Alderman Mobley's meeting, his chances of re-election would
be greater.

The Empire on Mr. Wm. Manson
The Optimist does not publish this as its own opinion of Mr. Manson. All
the articles under this heading arc taken from the Empire, a journal which today
is appalling to the electors to return Mr. Manson as Mayor. They were written
seven months ago, before the Empire had its dispute with the city over a printing
account.
It is still the same Empire, and the same Mr. Manson. The paper has not
changed owners or editors; nor has Mr. Manson done anything in the meantime
to merit any change of opinion regarding him.
WE MUST PUT HIM OUT
(From thc Empire of May 10th)
"With Mr. Manson's election we fear the independence of Prince Rupert
will fade away for many a long year to come. Happily however we have yet time
to aave thc situation. Let every true citizen make an earnest effort to secure
control of our own affairs, without bowing to any dictation from either Victoria,
Ottawa or Montreal."
"If he were a far-seeing citizen, could he not forsee the utter absurdity of his
trying to become a dual representative under these circumstances in this enlightened
and progressive city. If his motives were high he would even today step down and
out of this contest in order to advance the best interests of this city, but if he
persists in placing his own advancement ahead of a Home Rule principle for Prince
Rupert, there ia no alternative for the electors but that of trying to put him out."
(From letter in Empire's editorial column, same date.)
"I support Mr. Stork because he is at least a man.   What thc other haa proven
himself to be, I suppose I will not bc permitted to have published, if I did express
it.
"Mr. Manson cannot faithfully serve the wire-pullers and thc best interests
of this city. He has already clearly shown this, and his candidature being foiated
on the city is nothing leas than an affront to our intelligence."

spells
not the Mayor also?
City and Government
Aid. Mobley had referred to an ac-
| count against Prince Kupert by the
Provincial Government. Mr. Manson
I did not think this had yet been render-
led. There was therefore opportunity
Ifor adjustment of any differences if
Ithey existed. He hail already advised
|the Mayor not to settle tins until the
government had given an assurance
���nth regard to certain items promised
such us the reservoir or Acropolis hill
lor the site of which the title was
iccessary.
He suggested that on the matter of
Initiative and referendum the Municipal
Clauses Act was not sufficiently well
framed, und said that the Council was
Deserving of censure for not having
thia put before the people and voted
Upon.
Assessment  Problem
Un the matter of the G.T.P.   Assessment, Mr. Manson  said  he  had  been
nisquoted by Aid. Mobley if the report
|was correct.    "My   attitude  from the
commencement on this," he said, "has
Ibeen that this mattei  can never be
ettled  without  submitting it to the
eople."
In criticising Mr. Cuthbert, Aid. l'at-
Itullo has been unfair when Mr. Cuthbert is not in a position to retaliate,
pinks Mr. Manson, who added of Mr.
Tuthbert, "He did this work very
ell. The statement that he got his
Reward is unfair and objectionable."
Enforcement of Law
As for the  enforcement of  the law
|uring his term of oflice as Government
��gs*nt and Stipendiary Magistrate here,
Ir. Manson expressed himself as positive that he had done his duty.    Police
affairs then were under control of the
|istriet provincial chief of police, and
ehind him Supt. Hussey.    In his magisterial capacity Mr.   Manson said   he
Jfliad lined a man $150  for running a
him.]  pig,   and on  the second offence
11500.   The same man, he said, engineered things so that Mr. Manson waa
, turns*.! down when he  ran  for  Mayor
Ilast election,  by  the  influence of the
Jblind pig vote which Mr.   Manson  de-
I dared was  principally responsible  for
j the election of his opponent.   Criticism
I of the  enforcement of  the  law under
his regime  Mr. Manson  thought  was
but the red herring drawn acroBB the
I track.
The Question Battery
Questions were fired at the candidate.
I One was whether  an alleged blind pig-
gor named  McRae  was employed  on
road work,   Mr. Manson aaid  that was
in the hands  of  the superintendent of
| road works, not him.
"Why was Pat Daly allowed to run a
I blind pig on the Rupert Road ? " asked
| some one.
Mr. Manson did not know there ever
I had been such a thing as a blind pig on
Ithe Rupert Road.    If there  had been,
Asked how much  work would have
been in progress now in the city had hia
financial   system been in  force,   Mr.
Manson thought at least as much aa is
now already in hands; and on the 45
cent an hour question from the  Indus-
I trial  Association,   the candidate  was
I discretely diplomatic.    "$3 per day,"
| he said, "and an eight hour day"  wbb
his platform.     If later  it were   found
that $3 per day  was  insufficient,   the
matter could be put on  a  satisfactory
basis.
Young Blood for Council
Dr. \V. S. Hall announced his intention to support the Mobley ticket.
He also expressed the view that the
policy of the next council would follow
the lines of the old one. In regard to
the 45 cent claim of the Industrial
Association he wus not prepared to
state his opinion until he had fully
considered the question.
Mr. G. C. Emmerson followed, also
with the declaration that he intended
to vote for Aldermun Mobley. Mr.
Emmerson wus rather nervous and the
chairman hud to up|>eal to the good
nature of the audience, at least to the
garrulous part of it, to give the young
candislate a proper heuring. Mr. Emmerson rested his cluim for aldermanie
honors upon his engineering experience
on the townsite which he thought would
be of some value to the council in the
many engineering enterprises that would
have to be carried through next year.
In regard to the question lying on the
table regarding the candidates' attitude upon the labor question Mr.
Emmerson said he would not assent
to anything that would be detrimental
to the interests of the city as a whole.
A Vocal Interlude
At this part of the programme a
stirring vocal item was submitted by
a couple of lusty voiced individuals.
As may bc guessed, thc song related
to the campaign. It was a combination
of reasons for electing Alderman Mobley
to the post of Mayor arranged in verse
and chorus and set to the swinging tune
of "Rings on My Fingers," etc. It
formed a pleasing and diverting interlude.
Mobley Chuckles
Alderman Mobley on rising to address the meeting had a great reception.
He twitted Mr. Manson for saying that
he was defeated by the blind pigs
at thc last mayoral campaign. He
thought it was a very funny thing.
He was no more responsible for these
blind pigs than Mr. Manson. He
regarded it as the bounden duty of any
one who knew of the existence of a
blind pig to make the fact known to
the police commissioners. Alderman
Mobley was proceeding to speak f
t e scarcity of blind pigs now when
an interrupter shouted out that he
knew of thirty in the town. The Alderman nailed him at once by demanding
to know why he had not intimated the
fact to the commissioners. Mr. Manson
had said that he fined one man $150

and then $500 for keeping a blind pig.
Well they had had a crack at that man
themselves and he guaranteed that it
would be a very difficult job to find
that man now within the city limits.
He did not think there were enough
blind pigs in Prince Rupert to defeat
him, (Loud applause). If he was
defeated he was sure that it would
be by a better class than that.
Mr. Mobley's Platform
He then announced his platform.
The platform is as follows:
Thc municipal ownership of all public
utilities.
The minimum taxation of improvi-
ments.
A by-law to supply the city with _
water system from Woodworth lake, tin-
money to be raised upon the general
credit of the city.
The instullation of a sewer system on
the plan submitted by the engineer, the
trunk lines to be covered by general
credit and the lateral
tux system.
The maintenance of the present
telephone system and the provision for
its extension; not to be run on profit
making lines but for the benefit of the
subscribers.
The maintenance of the lire department and an apparatus in keeping with
the water supply.
An eight hour day for all city contracts, excepting the tire and police,
day labor on the sewer construction and
other city work that could not be
advantageously done by contruct.
The granting by thc city of substantial support to the new city hospit 1
and to arrange for a ward for municipal.
A public convenience for fishermen
and fishing craft to facilitate the fishing
industry which he looked upon as one
of the greatest interests of the city.
A Straight Answer
In regard to the wages question
asked by the Prince Rupert Industrial
Association he said no most emphatically.
The wages paid were higher now than
in any other city in the province. They
were as much as the city council could
afford to pay. This frank avowal
evoked the remark "down with Mobley"
but it was evident that his straight
answer had made a deep and favorable
impression. At the conclusion of his
address Mr. Mobley answered one or
two questions and resumed his seat
amid applause.
To Complete the Trio
H. Douglas,   the  third candidate in
the mayoral trio, came forward wreathed in smiles and hailed  with  thc  glad
cry of "Oh, you Mayor!"
In the best of good humor he gave
out his platform-strong on labor as
above reported. He cleared the 45 cent
an hour hurdle clean, declaring that as
mayor he would meet the demands of
the workers.    (Loud cheering).
On the G.T.P. assessment question,
Mr. Douglas is all for a square deal
and do giving away of the city.
Aid. Barrow'a Stewardship
Absent unavoidably from the council's "love feast" last week, Aid. Harrow was given an opportunity to contribute to the evening's entertainment.
He did so in a very bright speech. As
regards labor and wages.ihe supports'd
the principle of the economy of high
wages. He rather fancied that jMr.
Manson was guilty of contempt of
court in discussing a case now befure
the courts.
Aware that in some quarters he was
exonerated from share in the first
council's "iniquities" according to their
criticB, Aid. Barrow hastened to say
that though he did not usually air his
voice much in council, his vote was
fully as effective, and his colleagues'
"enormities" were his also by consent.
Aldermar
Engineer
As a practical engineer his influence
and skill had been devoted to the service of the city, but he held that the
firat principle of good municipal engineering was to let thc engineer do thc
work. He had as engineer advised the
council in their selection of a city engineer, and thought that  the   appoint
ment made required no advertisement
(Cheers).
Aid. Barrow, while in favor of municipal ownership where economical, said
he w as also in favor of letting companies supply these necessities if they
could do it more cheaply than the city.
It had been alleged, in regard to his
action in wanting the G.T.P. reserve
cleared, that his reason for desiring
the clearance was that the shack men
might rent rows of cheap houses of his
in section 8. They were welcome to
occupy these rent free���if they could
find them.
After remarking that the council
made one fundamental error in selecting cushions for the aldermanie chairs,
Aid. Barrow referred to his neighbor
S. M. Newton, whom lie could see any
morning from his window "fulminating
thunder."
Once Aid. Barrow had lent Mr. New-
ton'the prettily bound Municipal Clauses
Act with the result that a marvellously
on the frontage inverted view of the Ward By-law had
appeared in the acrobatic organ over
the way.
His neighbors views on the telephone
were truly marvellous. He wanted to
huve the only telephone forgetting thut
he would have nobody to ring up. But
supposing there were a second telephone the poor second subscriber would
be in a far worse plight. He would
have only Mr. Newton to ring up.
Than Mobley for Mayor, Aid. Barrow
is confident there is none better. He
said so, and said it well.
Bartenders  Scapegoats
Mr. W. H. Montgomery introduced
himself as the only independent candidate in the field. He would cut out
the contract system altogther, he said,
and introduce day labor on all city work.
He would also cancel the ward system.
He reiterated hie views in favor of the
initiative, the referendum and the
recall. One of his great, planks was the
institution of an insurance scheme that
would enable the injured workmen to
receive benefit from the date of the
accident and not after two weeks had
elapsed as is the case at present. One
thing he was sorely against was the
licensing of bartenders. 15 would make
the employee responsible for any damages. The employee was to bc made
the scapegoat of the employer. The
licensing was being advocated by the
licensees. Contractors were not similarly protected and he did not see why
licence holders should be. (Loud applause.)
Mr. Minion Called Down
The sum of $:l a day seemed to him
a ridiculous figure to ask a married
man to labor for in Prince Rupert. He
challenged Mr. Manson to again express
himself upon the subject of day labor.
Mr. Manson said he favored day's
labor but did not think it advisable
to jump from one system to another
suddenly.
"That is simply thc old game of
politics," retorted Mr. Montgomery.
"He wants to catch votes again." This
was greeted with loud applause. "These
were the men," he aaid, "who came out
at election time and demanded your
vote. The men who were against
Chinese labor on the platform but yet
employed them in their clubs." Mr,
Montgomery then said that while he
subscribed to none of the mayoral
tickets he was going to vote for Mr.
Mobley.
"But why are you vlting for a man
whose platform you do not agree with?"
asked a vocie from the hall.
"Because," replied the candidate,
"he has had the courage of his principles and convictions to get up and
declare himself." The effect of the
retort was a great outburst of cheering
for Mobley. "Of two evils choose the
leaser," remarked Mr. Montgomery as
he retired to his seat.
Alderman Lynch Ceta There
Greeted by a cheerful bedlam of war-
whoops Alderman Lynch was un-per
turbed. He touched on the points
raised by other speakers and had a
quiet hearing after the first burst of
excitement had died down.   He simply
reminded Mr. Manson, who had said
the first council should have consults
the people on the method of raising
funds for city works, that the municipal
clauses act does not provide for this
properly, and suggested that it waa
up to Mr. Manson to get this amended
when he is in Victoria. In any case
the scheme now in force had been
duly advertized for 15 duys, und had
there been any petition at all against
it the matter would have had through
attention. But there had been no
petition.
Mr. Manson Up Against It
Mr. Manson, Alderman Lynch, thought, would certainly have been up
against it if his policy hud been the
one udopted. First of all he could not
have had the plans for the work ready
before August. Then he would have
had to go before the people with a
by-law, and it was doubtful whether
he could have got his bonds on the
market before the G. T. P. difficulty
would have arisen, and even then
Aldermun Lynch thought, the returns
from the bonds would probably require so much more time that by thia
time of year under Mr. Manson's plan
work would still not have been started.
Station Work in City
City contracts, Alderman Lyrch thinks
are satisfactory. They are, he said,
much the same as station work anyway.
Many a station gang on the road is
tackling cuts as big as Ru|iert street
cuts, and some contracts are subdivided.
The speaker criticised Mr. Morrisey's
idea about access to the waterfront
through G. T. P. property, saying the
G. T. P. would want that access themselves anyway without Mr. Morrissey'a
agitation for it.
On the assessment, Alderman Lynch
said that he had suggested to the G. T.
P. that they accept and pay for 1910
the assessment fixed for 1911 after the
Court of Revision, byt D'Arcy Tate
did not sec this favorably. The result
was the present proposition under
consideration.  (Cheers).
Another Mobley Candidate
Mr. E. H. Mortimer who is running
in Ward Two announced that he waa
supporting Mr. Mobley and took it
for granted that that was a sufficient
answer to the labor question.
A Brush With Hilditch
Mr. D. H. Morrison, who followed,
expressed pleasure at the presence of
so many ladies. He was sure that if
the ladies had votes he would surely
be returned. Mr. Morrison said that
he had already had a large experience
of municipal affairs so he would be of
some value to the next council. He was
an independent man but he was giving
his support to Alderman Mobley. In
answering an interrupter who asked a
question regarding the Builders Exchange
donation being withdrawn (rom the
list on account of a certain contract
Mr. Morrison said that the particular
contract hud not been fairly let.
Alderman Hilditch (who was a front
bencher) "Will you tell us why it waa
unfairly let?"
Mr. Morrison d-d so but Mr. Hilditch
was not satisfied and guaranteed to
let the public the next time he was on
the platform know the true reason for
the withdrawal.
Pleased the Workers
With a few humerous touches Mr.
John Currie got his hearers in good trim.,
and in a very brief speech stated hia
confident support of Alderman Mobley.
As for the labor issue, his own policy
as a worker had ever been to get the
most he could. He couldn't promise
them the 45 cents per hour rate, but
in their place he would be with them
in trying for it.   (Cheers.)
Pattullo Explains
Alderman Pattullo was the last speaker
on the list and he was accorded a favorable reception. He paid high tribute
to the work of Mayor Stork in the
council after which he dealt with the
loan from the Bank of Montreal. He
explained that the interest on the money

impressed a London audience fashionable and attentive, the other evening,
when he told how he had gazed in turn
upon the forms of Cleopatra and Sir
Isaac Newton and spoken with them.
He has been a spiritualist for some
years and has held seances in both
America and England, but he said, "it
in America that the best results are
obtained, because the atmosphere is
more pronouncedly electric there than
in England.
"It was in America that I saw the
forms of Cleopatra and Hypatia and
the voice of Sir Isaac Newton spoke.
Of course, they may have been personations," he naively added, "but ia
absence of evidence to the contrary I
believe in what I saw and heard."
The admiral also had the remarkable
experience of attending a seance where
two separate voices spoke, one in each
ear, and a third addressed him from
the front, the medium also speaking at
the same time. Occasionally the spirit
voices would cease talking to him to
argue with one another.
RENO FAILS TO
GRANT DIVORCE
CONSTERNATION   REIGNS   SUPREME   IN   GAY   COLONY
Firit   Instance   of   Failure   on   Part
Member of Local Colony to Obtain
Decree-Residence    Qualification
Wai Stumbling Block.
Reno, Jan. 5.���The first instance
of the failure of a member of the local
di\orce colony to get a decree because
of her too frequent and extended absences from the city during her prescribed six months' residence in the
state, was recorded when the attorney
for Mrs. Corinne Bell, wife of Frank J.
Bell, an automobile man, asked to have
her suit against her husband dismissed,
after Judge Orr, not satisfied with her
showing of residence, and demanding
corroborative evidence, held up the
decision for further testimony.
Reports that Mrs. Bell had spent
much of her time away from Reno
reached the ears of t e judgi. and he
decided not to issue any decree until
the question of legal residence waa
more satisfactorily established by the
plaintiff.
Reno is all agog over this disastrous
termination of a divorce suit, and the
colony is astir with nervous excitement.
There are other women here in the same
boat.

Sydney Smith one day saw a little
girl stoop down and stroke the shell of
a turtle.
"Why are you doing that, Bella?" he
asked.
"To please the turtle."
"My child, you might as well stroke
the dome of St. Paul's to please thc
dean and chapter!" said the wit.
"I had a most delightful time last summer," gushed Miss Noling, "but 1 was
dreadfully inconvenienced at Leafland-
ville waiting for my trunk. I went there
by the N. T. C. so as to take advantage
of the scenery along the route, but I
had to send my trunk on the alow B. C
and E."
"But why couldn't you have sent your
trunk on the N. T. C, too?" murmured
Miss Sterling.
"Because," exclaimed Miss Noling,
glad to show her superior knowledge.
"I learned from a friend of mine that
the N. T. C. is not a trunk line."

When his satanic majesty has a
difficult job on hand he enlists the aid
of a pretty woman.
A fair exchange is no robbery, but
when a man has your umbrella and you
have his sympathy it is hardly a fair
exchange.
You can't always measure a man's
brains by the length of his hair.
One of the great drawbacks to a
literary career is the return postage.

Going After Smith
He also took occasion to remark
that Alderman Smith would be away
from the city sometime in June and
could not therefore give his time to the
council for the entire year. Another
criticism against Alderman Smith which
he offered was his attitude upon the
Liquor Licence By-law. Then again
he was a candidate in Ward One while
he resided in Ward Two. In regard
to the telephone issue of which ao much
j had been made by the editor of the
Empire he stated lhat he had insisted
��� on bringing down in the estimates the
{sum of $25,000 to be put to the telephone
'account. It remained there despite
j opposition through his own insistence.
I He also took occasion to remark that
i in any event no company could have
obtained the franchise without the
I matter   being   first   submitted   to  the
I people.
A Logical Conclusion
Concerning the vacillating attitude
of Mr. S. M. Newton of the Empire
he pointed out that for a long period
Mr. George Morrow was treated in
much the same way us he himself wits
being treated by that gentleman, yel
when Mr. Morrow was leaving he attended the banquet and lauded him
to the skies. He had severely handled
Mr. Manson in the last campaign yet
he was supporting him today. If he
was grossly mistaken in the last campaign surely it was possible that he
was mistaken again. What guarantee
had they that next year he would not
be admitling a mistake in regard to
Alderman Pattullo himself, and begin
to call him "Duffy." This sally was
provocative of greut mirth.
Not to be Held Up
Alderman Pattullo also criticised the
attitude of Mr. Manson on the labor
question on after stating specifically
himself that he declined to be held
up by the election threat of the Industrial Association. He thought it
was premature. Mr. Manson had
taken the same attitude in regard to
the subject as he had on all other subjects.
City Solicitor's Defence
An opportunity given City Solicitor
Williams to speak in defence of his firm,
was appreciated by the audience. Mr.
Williams took up the charges made
against the city solicitors and replied to
them.
He defended the advice given on the
Ward By:law. That advice was correct.
SI also was the advice given regarding
the closing of lists for householders
and licensees in October.
The question of whether after giving
verbal advice on the road tax andTrades
Licence By-law point, the firm had
written a lettes* confirming this advice,
Mr, Williams answered saying that he
did not think the assertion that such
a letter had been written was true.
Another letter had been written later
but not to the same effect.
Political Game?
Alderman Hilditch (interrupting)���"I
defy you to say that it is not true. The
letter is at the City Hall. If it is not
there it has been destroyed."
Mr. Williams���"I do not think so,
and I am sure the City Clerk would be
the first to resent the suggestion that
there was a letter which has been
destryoed."
Alderman Hilditch "I shall certainly
give the City Clerk an opportunity of
resenting then."
Alderman Pattullo���"I think Alderman Hilditch is mistaken. There was
some discussion, but no letter."
Alderman Hilditch muttered something baout a political game.
Mr. Williams���"It's not a political
game at all."
Alderman Hilditch- -"It is."
Mr. Williams���"Stand up and say
so!"
Aldermun Hilditch���"You bet 1 will,
it is!"
Mr. Williams���"Well, yes, it is Alder
man Hilditch���on your part!"
City Solicitors' Salary
Mr. Williams while contending that
his firm's advice on each of the pointa
was right, reminded the audience that
even the best of luwyers had been
known to reverse their decisions. He
declared that advice regarding the local
improvements to the effect that the
term of payment should not exceed 20
years had never been given.
As for the charge that the city solicitors were young���well, the city solicitors were asking for no favors because
of their youth. "We have made our
own way in this town, and we can
continue to do so," said Mr. Williams.
(Cheers.)
The matter of salary the firm left
entirely in the hands of the council,
holding out no palsied hand for favors.
But Mr. Williams pointed out that
the city solicitor of Vancouver gets
$6000 per annum und free premises
with three assistants for doing work
which Mr. Williams claims is really
less than is required in Prince Rupert
where the city solicitor's salary is $4,200
per annum out of which $1,200 goes
for stenographer's salary. The Victoria
solicitor gets $8000 for work lhat is
certainly less than is needed for this
. city.
The charge of inefficiency Mr. Williams
denied vigorously. "Any alderman who
can come up and say this���constitutes
himself a privy council��� is doing an
unfair and cowardly thing!" concluded
Mr. Williams emphatically amid cheers.
Mayor Stork closed the meeting with
an announcement to the effect that
although they had arranged to have the
theatre for the 10th the management
informed them that the Manson party
had the use of the hall that night.
However, meetings would be held in
the Mclntyre Hall and perhaps a joint
meeting in the Opera House. With
three rousing cheers for Mayor Mobley
the meeting broke up at 11:30.
