ALL MUST TOE THE MARK
ON THE LABOR QUESTION
Prince Rupert Industrial Association Will Ask For A
Statement From Each Candidate���Will Demand
45 cents an Hour as a Minimum Rate.
Prince Rupert Industrial Association
I has resolved that candidates in the
[present election campaign shall declare
! themselves positively upon that most
important labor issue���the wages question. The following resolution was
adopted with enthusiasm at a crowded
meeting of workers held last night
in the First Presbyterian church;
The Resolution
'Whereas we conclude lhat the minimum wage of 37 1-2 cents per hour is
inadequate to supply the necessities of
life with the extra high cost of living
which exists in the Northern district
of the province, and as a result, many
of the families of the working classes
within the city limits are forced to
submit to a standard of living which
is below that of other western  cities,
therefore be it resolved that we go on
rs-K-ord as demanding of the municipal
government and of all companies or
employers of labor within the city limits
a [minimum wage of 45 cents per hour
and a general eight hour working day.
"And be it further resolved that a
copy of these resolutions be presented
to the different aspirants for the various
civic offices in the present election
campaign, and that they place themselves on record either for or against
the demand."
Will Call on Aspirants
It was agreed that the resolution
should be handed to the prt��ss for
publication after which a committee
of the workers will wait on the various

DIVIDED UP
GERMANY AND RUSSIA REPORTED TO HAVE AGREEMENT
London Paper Says Britain and
France Resent Business -May lead
to International Trouble -Result
of Czar and Kaiser's Meeting.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Jan. 6. -An evening paper
publishes an account of an agreement
supposed to have been arrived at between Russia and Germany for the
joint appropriation of Persai. The
agreement is said to be the outcome
of the recent interview of the Kaiser
and the Czar at Potsdam.
The newspaper goes on to say that
the action of the countries named is
holly resented by the Governments of
Great Britain and France and that
international difficulties of great magnitude may eventuate from the secret
bargaining.
MURDER STIMULATES HATE
AGAINST THE ANARCHISTS
Body Found on Clapham  Common With Letter  S
Carved With Knife   Upon   Either   Cheek���Believed to be Vengeance Work of the Reds
(Special to the Oplimisti
London, Jan. 6.���Excitement over
the anarchist raids is still unabated.
Today it eceived a great stimulus at
the discovery of a murdered man on
Clapham Common. On both cheeks
of the deceased was carved the letter S.
The mark was carved with I knife and
made a horrible wound, but it was
at once recognized that it was no chance
stab. It was a mark intended to bear
significance. The police and the public
construe it as an act of vengeance by
the remaining anarchists.
Houndaditch Excited
Houndsditch is in a terrible state of
exceitement over the discovery. The
inquest was held today and the greatest
interest was manifested in the proceedings. The city police realize that
it is up to them to find the perpetrator
of the outrage, and it is reported that
another raid will be made today uptw
the anarchist headquarters, if not tc
find the actual murderer at least tt
discover the rendezvous in which sue!
atrocious crimes are hatched. In anticipation of the raid all London is agog
The peopel are beginning to realizi
that even more drastic measures wil
have to be adopted to finally rid tht
country of the foreign anarchist*--. Th��
police also realize that the present it
a good time to do it when public sentiment is undoubtedly with them. Fronr
all accounts they intend to do it.

Lost Their Dollars.
The trial of Delmont Zarelli, "Dago
Jim" charged with running a common
gaming house came on today, and a
number of witnesses gave evidence
going to show that poker was played
on his premises down on Comox. that
jackpots were called and n rake-oft
taken when they were called. Whether
the rake-off was all required for cards,
lights, and refreshments or not was
not established in the evidence up to

Bob Karlunds was on ("omtsx avenue

ATTACK ON ALDERMAN HILDITCH
LABOR CANDIDATE, MR. W. H. MONTGOMERY,  IN EXCELLENT SPEECH
CHARGES ALDERMAN WITH BREAKING UNION RULES
MEETING WOULD^ NOT ALLOW ABUSE
Speaker Who Started to Abuse Alderman Pattullo Checked by Audience���Many
Speakers  Heckled  by Audience���Mr. William Manson Was
Given Good Hearing���-Lively Incidents.
The meeting held in the .-skating Rink
last night in support of Mr. William
Manson and also in support of the various
aldermanie candidates who are supporting his platform had many interesting
features, apart from the merit of the
speeches delivered. At times it resolved
itself into a verbal duel between the
opposing factions. The Mansonites
largely preponderated but there was
just a sufficient sprinkling of Mobleyites
to render the proceedings interesting
and relieve it from the tedium that
the efforts of the speakers thrust upon
it. The chair was occupied by Mr.
F. M. Lannic and at times his passage
was nol an easy one, nor were his
rulings   always   consistent    with    the
I ideals of British fair play which at the
j outset he quoted as his motto.
Mr. Manson's Address
The first speaker to be introduced
[ was Mr. Manson. He reiterated his
I election platform and repeated his
i statement that  he woulu follow in the
footsteps   of   the   present   council   in
regard to the works they had  set  on
foot. One change he woultl endeavor
!to  make,  however,  was the extension
of the loan from twenty years to fifty.
(Borrowing  in  the early stages  -should
be done at  the longest  time possible.
They did not realize the situation keenly
l this year but next year when they had
their taxes to pay they would under-
I stand better the advantages nf a long
term. The water system would have
to be undertaken during the next session of council. He was glad to know
that plans had been prepared and for
his part he would be prepared to follow
them out. He would welcome the
water system because it would lead
to a reduction of the fire insurance
rates. He again explained his position
in regard to sewers. In regard to the
police he believed in the enforcement
of the law. During the pii-it seven
months the law had not been enforced.
The police board had full control ol the
department.

College Girls aa Wives
A warm controversy is raging in
some of the United States magazines
as to the value of college girls as wives.
One lady writing in the Philadelphia
Inquirer hits out in the following terms
at a college professor who dared to
poke into the controversy:
"It is mighty mean for a married
man, and a college professor at that,
to make an attack on college girls
From the bitterness of his words one
feels either lhat the man has married
one and is dissatisfied, or else is angry
because he hasn't, and is taking il out
on the rest of them.
"Only lhe nice college girls get married, complains this critic. Well that
is the only kind of a girl who has a
fair chance of getting married anyhow.
The competition for husbands is keen
and few men escape; but il is evident,
as thc evolutionists have pointed out,
! that the fittest survive and snare the
husbands. So far lhe college girl seems
to have made good, as three-fourths
of her i if we may be allowed the expression lure married.
"Besides there are a lot of mighty attractive girls of education who are not
married at all, and we are of the opinion that it is their own fault; if such
it is, and greatly to their credit. They
have seen the experiences of some of
the nice girls who have married in the
days of aviation pricee and are contented to be without husbands.
"But it seems that at bottom our critic
complains that the girls make no use
of their education after they are married.
This is where he makes a mistake.
Any man who has married one or more
college graduates understands that their
intellectual activities are not put to
sleep at the altar.
"College graduates of the male persuasion do not want educated wives,
because they fear disillusion. Ignorant
men want them because they consider
them prizes. So they are. No home is
really happy without a wife who can
read Greek and solve problems in differential calculus. This is the reason
for the activity of the divorce courts
When  all  women  go  to  college men
The Blight on Entertaining
The woman's supplement of thr>
Time-1, recently issued, had an article
describing and denouncing the lavish
display of London society. This extravagance, the writer says, has increased with the rise of democracy.
Fifty years ago, London society was
aristocratic. Almost everyone knew
every one else and its members were
related. But there was far less rivalry
in dress, in entertainment and in equipage than is the case today. Then,
as we know, there was a great gulf
between the aristocracy and the common
people. Nowadays money seems to
be the criterion. The poor family,
however high in rank cannot hope
to take their places in a society where
the test of an entertainment is the
amount of money spent.
The writer says that in London, as
in the United States, social pre-eminence
depends largely on a willingness to pour
out money on self-entertainment and
empty show.
The pity of it is that the evil has on
this continent penetrated to almost
every class in society. To be as well
dressed, to have as fine a house, to
keep as good a table as her neigbor
is the ambition of almost every woman, not only in the city but in the
country. How much of heart burning
and of unhappiness this causes, it
would be impossible to tell. Not only
this, but there is so little money to
spend for things that are really worth
having. Vulgar display iB the enemy
of all that is really refining and destroys
all the finer feelings. The false pride
that prevents us from entertaining
our friends because we cannot give
them as dainty food or set as beautiful
a table as we would like very often
costs us the loss of precious companionship.

A Novelty for Breakfast
An excellent breakfast dish is baked
apples with figs or dates. Core the
apples, fill the holes with chopped figs
or slates, packed in tightly, sprinkle
with powdered sugar and baste often
with butter, lemon juice and hot water.
Serve separately or with cream.
Household Notes
Perfectly clear, cold coffee will renovate black silk much better than beer.
It is applied to the right side of the silk,
which should be ironed on the wrong
side, over a heavy blanket, when half
dry.
When cutting material on the bias, it is
the part of wisdom to lay the goods
smoothly on a sewing table or sewing
board. Pin, if necessary, so as to avoid
any danger from slipping or pulling.
Very useful cover bags for books may
be made of linen and embroidered either
with a conventional design the name of
the book or with a monogram. Stitch
on strap handles if for use in travelling.
The careful laundress always keeps a
small vegetable brush or comb at hand
for the sole purpose of brushing out the
fringe on doilies and towels. This Is
a far better plan than whipping the
article to straighten the fringe.

The Optimist's Ownership
Statements made by a speaker at the skating rink last night to the effect
that the Optimist was bought by members of the city council; that they dictate
its policy, and that the City Solicitor has written editorials for it call for public
answer as follows:
(1) The Optimist is not owned by the city council. It is owned by some
thirty business men of Prime Rupert. Only three are members <sf the council.
Their interest is less than one-sixth of the total share capital of the company.
(2) The policy of the Optimist is not dictated by any member of the council.
Its directors are all business men, and the council are not even represented on its
Board. The editor is perfectly unfettered in his choice and treatment of subjects.
His only instructions arc to give the people of I'rince Rupert and district a clean,
fair paper, which will counteract the "knocking" the city has had, and help the
progress of the city.
(3) The only article written for the Optimist by either of the City Solicitors,
was one published on October 22nd, headed, "Announcement." It is an announcement of the paper's change of ownership, and an appeal that the newspapers of
the city end their nuarrels and "stand for everything tliat may go to make the
West wholesome, happy and prosi-erous." The article which is from the pen of
Mr. Alex Manson was written in that gentleman's capacity as secretary of the
newly-formed company. Since the present editor's appointment his pen alone
has contributed to the editorial columns of the Optimist.

The remainder o! the jingle we will not print. It is unfit for publication, and
those who are not aware of the last words of the quotation are better off without
them. The words ars> an offensive reference to the white European workers in the
city.They were uttered by one of Mr. Manson's supporters in his presence, allowed
to go unchecked.   They may be taken, therefore, as carrying his endorsement.
The words are an appeal to race hatred among the workers. They constitute
an attempt tn split up the labor men into armed camps. It has worked well in
the past. By the appeal to race hatred, thc plutocrats have always been able to
get the sons of the working men to go out to fight one another while they enjoyed
the fruits of victory. It is just such appeals that the representative labor leaders
of today, are trying hard lo light.
One such representative labor leader is Sam (iompers, president of the American Federation of Labor. He is a Belgian cigarmaker, and therefore not a "while
man" according lo the Mansonian definition. In the fall of 1SI09 the A. F. of L.
sent him over to Europe to confer with the European International Labor Conference at Paris. As a result of President Gomper's recommendation, the annual
convention of the A. F. of L. in 1!>09, at which we were presenl, passed a unanimous
resolution, recommending that steps be taken lo form an Inter-Continental Federation between the American Federation of Labor and the European Internationals.   This will he laid before the International Conference in Europe in 1912.
No one in I'rince Rupert will deny that most of us would prefer men
of our own breed to Latins. Teutons or Slavs. Bui failinn M ample and immediate supply of Anglo-Saxons, the presence of men and women of the other European
races is warranted on economic and sociological grounds. Even from the racial
point of view they are valuable as a bulwark against an Asiatic invasion. They
are on the whole a law abiding and indusirious class. Their children, shaking
our language, studying In our schools, and incorporating our ideals will grow into
Canadian clUiens.   We are all the product of our environment.
The labor men of I'rince Kupert will show their political wisdom best by
pouriiiK scorn upon the appeals lo race-hatred that are being dragged into the

Prince George Leaves- on Time and
May   Break  Record
The Prince George left Prince Rupert wharf last night on schedule lime,
and if the weather holds good she may
again knock some time off the record.
On her trip up she was in fair shape
for putting the record to shame when
she encountered very rough weather.
Captain Robertson informed the Optimist thai it was about the worst
spell he had experienced on this part
of the coast. Between Bella Bella and
China Hat it blew- a gale and he had to
slow down or incur unnecessary risks
in negotiating the natrrow channels.
The Princess Beatrice left early in
the forenoon after taking on her cargo
for the soulh. She was somewhat late
in returning from Skagway and did
not waste any time in getting on the
road again.

regained consciousness. He washed

as likely that Earl Grey's promised trip
to Ihe northern regions will be called
off on account of the pending visit of
the Duke of Connaught to Canada.
The difficulty in the way is that the

Notes and Comments
Alderman Smith as a "friend of labor" should be photographed for posterity'*
Who is the "friend of labor" lhat insisted at a wage arbitration that 18.26
a day was ample for any working man?
The man who urges as an excuse for his non-attendance to the electors' interests, that his lime is all "bought and paid for "by his firm, puts his firm's interests
before the public interest.
If the public gets a raw deal from Alderman Smith when his linn's interests
intervene, what chance has lhe workingman with him?

to accede to the desire of Mayor Stork
H leaving that issue as much alone
Bring the campaign as possible.    It
ts a delicate position and should not
abused.   He contented himself with
l^yiii**  that  he would  be  prepared to
kgotiate   for   an   amicable  settlement
\d  when  he thought  he  had got  it
would submit it to the people for
leir endorsation.
The Labor Question
iThc labor question was one of great
kportanee, and he thought that in
i spending of public money care should
taken to see that it was distributed
las to benefit the men who by living
(the city and helping to upbuild it
|te taking active part in its developing He proposed to do some more
the city work by days' labor in
leference to the contract system. In
Is opinion the sewers and water works
��ight very well be done by days' labor.
Qucation from Aid. Barrow
As the candidate resumed his seat
bdarman Barrow rose and asked the
Question if it would be possible for Mr.
lanson if returned to visit the out-
ying places in his parliamentary con-
ijtituency. He would like to know if
Prince Rupert was going to bc allowed
|to monopolize all his fine qualities-
Mr. Manson replied that there would
[lis no difficulty in making reasonable
���visits. The railroad and steamboat
Iserviees were always improving. During
Ithe present session of council many
lof the members had time to get away
and nobody broke their hearts about
it.   (Loud applause).
Mr. P. H. Mortimer merely announced
his candidature and that he was supporting Mr. Mobley for Mayor. In
reply to a question he said he was in
favor of a eight hour day and $3 per day.
The Third Candidate
Mr. H. Douglas, the third Mayoral
candidate, was then called upon. He
promised to support any and all legislation that would tend to further the
interest of thc wage earning classes.
Dr. Clayton in his remarks did not
blame Alderman Mobley for everything that was done during the present
council. However, he had asked for
criticism. The doctor would like to
know if they had closed the blind
pigs as they had asserted they would.
In regard to the street the council
had said that day or station labor was
not feasible yet the very contractors
to whom they let the work were doing
it by day and station labor. As for
Alderman Mobley's record the only
thing he did in council was to bring in
thc Liquor License By-law.
Mr. G. E. Emmerson announced
himself as a supporter of Mr. Mobley.
In explanation of his candidature he
said that the G. T. P. had thought he
had sufficient ability to engage him
to look after certain of their engineering work. He thought therefore he
might be able to render some assistance
to the city.
Heck-ted by Labor
Mr. D. H. Morrison also announced
his candidature. Being a contractor
he was asked his position in regard to
labor.   He favored eight hours per day.
"In the case of your own men what do
you do?"
The Empire on Mr. Wm. Manson
The Optimist does not publish this as its own opinion of Mr. Manson. All
Ithe articles under this heading are taken from the Empire, a journal which today
lis appealing to the electors to return Mr. Manson as Mayor. They were written
I seven months ago, before the Empire had its dispute with the city over a printing
I 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
merit any change of opinion regarding him.
HOW'S THIS, MR. MANSON
(From the Empire of May ISthi
"Straddlc-the-fence Manson hands a lemon to the temperance people and with
the Other hand deliberately points a pistol at the heads of the liquor men."
"When the independent Stork government assumes control of civic affairs,
no legitimate business need fear the rod of oppression, such ns William Manson
is now holding over the heads of the prospective hotel keepers."
"It is doubly necessary, therefore to suppress this frank nttempt to throttle
the sovereign rights of a free people. William Manson has overstepped the bounds
of tolerance in this one act alone, and the sooner he is taught a sound lesson that
bludgeon methods will not go in a free and enlightened people the better. He
ku utterly disgraced himself, and now appears in the light of a tyrant. Tyranny
will not lead; it forces a spirit of retaliation. Down with the intimidators. Britons
fever shall be slaves."
"We would rather stand for intemperance even, than be a party to the low-
down methods of the Mansonites in deliberately holding a club over the heads
of the liquor interests to beat them into submission, while at lhe same lime fooling
the tssmperance sentiment by dangling an impossibility through the means of a
barren plebiscite."
Is Still Far From Perfect
(From last night's Empire)
"We frankly acknowledge that there are certain impediments which under
ordinary circumstances, should tell agianst Mr. Manson's candidature."

SEVEN to TEN THOUSAND acres farming land on the Upper Naas, on proposed route  Canadian Northern at right price.

Or at Royal Hotel P.O. Box 2
"I work them just as many hours as
they want to work, six, seven, eight, or
nine," was the reply.
A gentleman who alleged that he had
been fired by the speaker for refusing
to work nine hours asked why he had
been fired. Mr. Morrsion did not think
any man could say he was fired by him
for not working nine hours. He was
willing to pay him for whatever hours
he worked and he had paid as high wages
as any man. The questioner admitted
that he had always been well treated
by Mr. Morrison but adhered to his
statement that he had been lired.
Again the Government
Mr. W. H. Montgomery was the next
candidate to face thc music. He explained that he was there on the labor
ticket only. He favored day labor
over the contract system. He was ulso
in favor of cancelling the ward system
so that candidates would have to come
before the whole community. He was
in favor of popular government and no
appointments made from Victoria such
as licence commissioners and police
commissioners. How can you keep
politics out he asked if the government
reserves the right to appoint two officers
on these commissions. He was also
in favor of the Initiative and the Referendum. Not only so; he was in favor
of the Recall whereby thc people who
had elected a man had the right to
recall him if his services did not suit
their wishes. In regard to a white
city he referred to Mr. T. Dunn, that
great champion of the people's rights,
and said that he had been served by
an Oriental in his place. Yes, the Chinamen and other Orientals were all right
so long as they were competing in the
labor market. They were the finest
things ever, but when they began lo
compete in the capitalisl market as
they were now doing it was time to
get rid of them. For his part they
could now go to it.
Hilditch Not Labor Man
As for Alderman Hilditch he did not
believe that he was a labor man. He
had done things which no conscientious
labor man would do. He referred to
the stand taken by lhat alderman on
the Liquor License By-law. He apparently did not think the people were
capable of electing people to represent
them properly. He also charged him
with paying men 37 and a 1-2 cents
per hour when thc standard rate was
40 cents for laborers' work. Nor did
the alderman pay his men for extra
overtime upon a certain contract he
carried out.
Pattullo  Talks
Alderman Pattullo was given a cordial
reception. He thought lhat Mr. Man-
son had paid great tribute to the work
of the council during the present session.
His only criticism had been the matter
of borrowing money at twenty years
instead of for a longer |H>riod. They
had now before them contracts for tin*
planking of Section Five, Six and Seven,
and also one for a trunk line to Section
Eight. In regard lo the question of
thc sewers he pointed out that tin-
policy of Mr. Manson was exactly
lhe policy of the present council. He
did not agree with Mr. Manson that
it would be a simple matter for him
to get away in the event of his being
elected. In regard to labor he said
he never posed as the particular champion of the wotking man. He was
absolutely friendly to him but always
consistent to the conception of his
duty to the public in general. He
was not the extreme champion of
the working man yet he believed that
the working man trusted him just
the same. Referring to the Empire
he said he had ignored it because he
did not think very much of it but
recently it had attacked him very
severely. When a man deliberately
stated that he believed that another
man was stating what he knew to be
untrue he transgressed the ethics of
debate. In connection with the Empire
he just wanted to say, however, that if
the present city council had handed
it $10,000 or $26,000 worth of advertising they would have been the finest
bunch   of   councillors   thay   had   ever
seen.   (Loud applause).
Empire Replies
Following on the heels of Mr. Pat-
ullo came Mr. S. M. Newton who.
prefaced his remarks with the statement that his opponent, the alderman,
was the great I Am, and the only gentleman in the city who could govern it.
He charged Alderman Pattullo with
uttering infamous lies concerning the
Empire and was about to elaborate his
abuse of that gentleman when the
meeting called him to order. He then
proceeded to ramble over the various
blunders of the city council, but at every
point Alderman Pattullo's name cropped
up and in the end it was his personal
character that was being catechised
and not the doing or misdoings of thc
council. The man who referred to the
citizens as skunks won't get votes, he
said. He traversed the ground that
led up to the telephone by-law and
denied emphatically that the printing
of it had anything to do with his present
attitude. The free and independent
organs were very few nowadays. He
was following in the footsteps of John
Houston and he did not think that there
was another man better fitted than
himself to do so. In regard to the
telephone petitions he was pulled up
by Mr. Gibbons in the gallery for stating
lhat efforts were made to induct1 people
not to record their votes. Mr. Gibbons
begged to interrupt to deny the statement emphatically and his denial was
greeted wilh applause. Mr. Newton
then admitted that he was making the
accusation upon hearsay evidence.
Alderman Naden wanted to know
who got the signatures and before
Mr. Newton could reply Mr. Palmer
stepped in and said that he was the man
who took Mayor Stork down to the
steamer to get his signature.
Alderman Naden���Then surely that
shows a desire on the part of the Mayor
to have the signatures.
Mr. Palmer���It was myself who got
the Mayor to do it or the signal urn
would not have been obtained.
Editor Confuted
Mr. Newton went on to say that the
petitions were a blind so that later
on the council could throw the onus
of losing the system upon the people.
Abusive references to the Optimist
brought A. Manson to the front. He
stated clearly that no gentleman connected with the city council were in
any way connected with the policy
of the paper, and it wits grossly untrue
to say that at any time they attempted
to control the editor's utterances. They
did not even have representation on the
board of directors.
In reply to the charge that he (>er-
sonally wrote for the editorial columns
Mr. Manson took the opportunity of
stating that he had written but one
article for the paper in which he asked
the papers to proclaim a peace. He
commended it to the audience, and the
lioople of I'rince Rupert.
Mr. Naden Have Mr. Manson and
his supporters bought the Empire?
This seemingly |H*rtinent question
met with a prompt disavowal by Messrs
Newton and Manson. "Then if the
Empire's support has not been bought
by Mr. Manson," argued Alderman
Naden, "il is not fair to say that the
Optimist's opinions are bought because
it supports Mr. Mobley."
Hilditch to the Relief
Alderman Hilditch relieved the au-
ience from Mr. Newton. He first
rebutted the charges of Mr. Montgomery seriatim. The men had agreed
to work without the overtime until
such time as the roof was on the building,
the Central Hotel. He defied anyone
to say that he owed a dollar. While
the council certainly deserved to be
criticized he did not think it deserved
many of the criticisms that were brought
against it. Mr. Pattullo was a hard
worker. His only fault was that he
tried to do too much alone. (Laughter).
In regard to the clause in contracts
governing the hours of labor he had a
mild skirmish with Mr. A. Manson,
the city solicitor. Unlike some of the
others, however, they agreed to differ
amicably upon a technical detail. Mr.
J. A. Kirkpatrick also spoke briefly
announcing his candidature and his
support of Mr. Manson. He Baid he
was more interested in the return of
Mr. Manson as Mayor than of himself
for Alderman.
Editor in the Field
After Mr. Kirkpatrick, Mr. J. S.
Cowpcr, the editor of the Optimist, was
invited to the platform to refute the
charges brought against the paper by-
Mr. Newton. Dr. Clayton tried manfully to have him closured on a point
of order but thc meeting called the
dentist down and would not listen to
him. Mr. Cowper explained that since
he had taken over the control of the
paper he had received no instruction
as to whom he should criticize or whom
he should praise. He was a free agent,
as much so as the editor of the Empire.
He denied that since his regime in office
any other pen than his had figured
in the editorial columns, and said that
the fairness of the Optimist's reports
was evidence of its good faith to the
public-
Mr. Cowper had endeavored to nail
the slanders when they were uttered
but as he is not an aldermanie candidate
the chairman at first took refuge in
that privilege and refused him a hearing
despite an earlier assertion that he
was in favor of British fair play.
The meet ing was a good one and lasted
till nearly midnight.
BIG MINE DEAL
IN HAZELTON
PAYMENT   OF   $3000   ON   $65,000
BOND MADE IN CITY
Property Purchased la Two Group*
on the Rouche de Boule Mountain
���Creat Things Expected From
the Mines.
Yesterday at the Premier Hotel,
Ralph P. Trimble of Portland, who has
mininng interests in the Couer d'Alenes,
and Mr. P. D. Pcmberton, a wealthy
mining man of Victoria, B. C, made
the preliminary payment of $3000 on
their $65,000 bond given to W. S.
Sargent and ('. Munro for two groups
of s-lamis on Rouche de Boule Mountain
southeast of Hazelton and about two
miles from the main line of the G. T. P.
One group is a itllphlU COPPW proposition, showing the rather startling
average assays of from 15 to 31 iier
cent on two big leads, and carrying fair
gold values. The other group shows
two big leads of fine concentrating
silver-lead galena averaging $60 and
is thc result of several assays of ore
across the veins at different points
taken by Mr. Trimble personally.
Mr. Trimble stated to the Optimist
that he will go to Hazelton nn the first
of May and let contracts for two tunnels, one on each group and will employ
twenty men. Work would be started
immediately but for the scarcity of
powder and supplies, everything available in lhat line having been cleaned
up by other mines operating in the
district.
Promising Proapect
Mr. Sargent, one of the locators of
the pro|H>rty, speaking of the district
around Hazelton says: "Just before
leaving for Kupert Foreman Griswold
of the Lead King, brought into camp
some of the best looking silver-lead
ore I have ever seen. He told me they
had from 8 to 18 incehes of solid galena
and the vein matter was at least three
feet wide. The assays were sent to
Prince Rupert and I expect to see some
high values. The Harris Brothers
have what seems to me to be the biggest
find on Nine Mile Mountain, Their
work just now is sinking on the largest
lead on their ten claims known as the
American Boy group. The ore is a
very clean cube galena with silver
values running as high as 300 ounces."
Messrs. Trimble, Pcmberton, Sargent,
Martin and Thompson left on the Princo
George for Vancouver last night. IHE  PRINtE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST

Dashing Young Lady Comes in for

Waiter.
Philadelphia, Jan. 4.���The death of
Robert Buist, head of the Robert
Buist Seed Company, at hia apartment
in the Hd lev ue-St rat ford caused considerable apecualtion as to whether he
would leave his fortune to his granddaughter, Miss Roberta De Janon, who
caused a sensation nearly a year ago
by running away from the hotel with one
of the waiters.
This was set at rest when the will was
filed. By the terms, she is given in
trust the bulk of the estate, which is
valued at $600,000 instead of $5,000,000.
It was known that Mr. Buist was
deeply grieved at the actions of Miss
De Janon, and it was thought that he
would probably refuse to leave even a
part of his fortune to her. Those who
have seen the late seed merchant were
of the opinion, however, that Miss De
Janon would be left the greater part
of the fortune.

when a faulty switch sent the engine
and coaches off the line. The engine
sprang up in the air and rested on the
tender while the carriages telescoped
into one another with terrific force.

In his teal for the city's interests
Alderman Hilditch has been hunting
for the council's trial balance sheet
of late. It seems, however, that Alderman Pattullo���equally zealous���forestalled the council's "watch dog" and
got the only copy of the sheet as soon
as City Clerk Woods had it ready. He
took it home to study it well; and by
a simple oversight forgot to bring it
back. The "watch dog" was wowffing
at him for that yesterday, saying it
was very hard that he couldn't get what
he wanted when he wanted it. Alderman
Pattullo's explanation was satisfactory,
however.

"It isn't that, but I don't want the

"Did you ever stop to think, my

The man entered a barber shop,

"Goodness gracious!" said the barber.

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 that 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 against the idea of being
in any *ay dependent upon the promises
of the candidate. "If we want 45 cents
an hour, let us rather strike for it," he
Buid. 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 j
wiggle to get out. What we want toj
do now iB simply to advertise our|
attitude towards the wage rate, and get
these candidates' views so that we may
know for whom to vote. Later if need
be we may strike, and Btrike hard."
Cries of "Hear! Hear!" and "We've
always got the club!" greeted this.
Thc speakers who showed a tendency
to go into discussion of the advisability
of a strike were ruled out of order, and
the resolution went through.
Thirty New Recruits
At the outset of the meeting thirty-
Ivor is secretary anil A. 0. Morse acted
as recording secretary for the evening.
A vote of thanks to the Empire for
services rendered the labor 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 the 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.
