EDITOR TO FACE
SERIOUS CHARGE
S.   M.  NEWTON  IS ACCUSED OF
LIBEL BY ALD. MOBLEY
R��Told Chief McCarvell When Served
That He Had Read All About It in
the Optimist���Preliminary Trial
on Wedneaday.
In our issue of Saturday we indicated
| hat the arrest of Mr. S. M. Newton
jitor of the   Evening Empire of  this
f-iiy, had been asked for by Alderman
fobley upon a charge of criminal libel
fagistrate ("arss to whom thc applica-
Iion was made, inquired into the matter
nd learned that he could either issue
warrant for thn apprehension of Mr.
���Jewton tor summon him to appear in
Burt.   This latter course was the one
adopted and Mr. Newton will appear
court tomorrow in  answer  to  the
jmmons.
The summons was served by Chief
IcCarvell late on Saturday afternoon.
i'hvti he entered the Empire office
rmed with the oniiniij-ja-Jijjs-*ivs- on
lue foolscap he fo-dna thcEmpire
pitor reading the Optimist. As there
a full account of the affair in the
timist, explanations betwe'. n the chief
olice and Mr. Newton were rendered
erfluous. The Chief served the
. saasUmons, and Mr. Newton in accepting
i It, said he had read about il in Ihe
I Optimist.
Vat-the   basis  of   I lie   libel    suit   is  the
"pt^tement published in the Empire on
inesday   which   charged   Alderman
Bbley   with   wholesaling   liquors   to
���license holders.    On   reading   the
amatory statement  on   Friday  Al-
nan Mobley took occasion to deny
publicly at the meeting held in the
Xntyre Hall in   support of   the al*
nnnic candidatures of  Dr.  W.  8.
and   Mr.  John  Currie.    On  the
Urday  morning  he  filed   an  infor-
tion and entered suit,
he case is   arousing a   great deal
Dterest and comment.   The  prevail-
|sentiment is one of sympathy for
erman Mobley in having his name
ged through the  mud  in  such s
tner.
DESPERATE BATTLE IN LONDON
THOUSAND POLICE AND A REGIMENT OF SCOTS GUARDS ATTACK THE
HEADQUARTERS OF THE ANARCHIST ASSOCIATION
FIGHT TO THE DEATH-MANY KILLED
Anarachists Were Well Armed and Fought With Rifles From the Housetops-
Troops   Drove  Them   into  Their Burning Building and They Perished
When   the  Walls  Caved   in���Coronation   Plot   Suspected.
(Special to the Optimist)
London. Jan. 3.���London is in a state
of panic. A pitched battle is going on
in the heart of the city between the
police and soldiers and the one hand
and a gang of notorious anarchists
on the other. Already two constables
have been fatally wounded and at least
two of the anarchists have been laid
low. The scene of the fight is a block
in Sydeney street in which the gang has
been cooped up. The police attempted
to raid the place but were fired upon.
Now a thousand policemen and a regiment of the Scots Guards are on the
s.-ene taking part in the revolver and
rifle fusilade which is bound to end
in a serious loss of life. The area is
completely deserted by the people who
dare not go near for fear of beinK shot.
A Haunt for Anarchists
The place has long been known to
the police as an anarchists' club. Their
action has been precipitated on account
of the Houndsditchtnurder where three
constables were shot dead a month ago
when about to arrest a gang of men who
then surprised tunnelling their way
to the vault of a wealthy London broker
where $100,000 was known to be deposited. The murderers are known to
b* connected with this gang of international thie.ves and murderers and it
is the avowed intention to weed them
out this time for good. The anarchists
in the building were armed with auto
matic revolvers and shoot at anyone
who shows himself. Up till now they
have retained possession of the block
but their capture is only a question nf
time.
Two Bandits Killed
Excitement runs high. The war
feeling is abroad among the police and
the soldiers and they also shoot at
sight. Two of the bandits are known
to have succumbed as a result of the
siege. At one point where the huilding
caught fire a man was seen to hurtle
through spare to his doom emitting
a horrible yell. Another, apparently
gone mad with fear or rage rushed out
into the street yelling like a madman
and firing his revolver at random. A
single shot from a policeman's revolver
quieted his tongue and laid him low
forever.
Tried to Fire Building
That the police are in earnest in their
intention to rid London of this plague
was made manifest when they deliberately attempted to fire the building.
They first tried to smoke the men out
and failing in thnt threw torches in
at the windows. The fire of the enemy
was so hot. however, that the soldiers
and constables had to retreat.
Waa It a Coronation Plot?
In connection with the seige, which
is one of the most curious that has ever
taken place in the annals of the great
city, it is rumoured that the stern
activity of the police is the belief that
the real object of the gang was the
perpetration of some outrageous crime
during thc Coronation festivities in the
summer.
A number of foreign dignitaries will
be in the city for the Coronation and
the action of the police is being taken
as an evidence that they had heard
of an anarchist plot.
Winston Churchill on the Scene
London, (Later)���At the height of
the conflict Mr. Winston Churchill
arrived from the House and directed the
attack which lasted for five hours. As
a result of the terrible fusilade the
building caught fire. As the flames
spread the desperadoes scaled the roofs
of the adjoining houses, keeping up a
steady return fire. They appeared to
have an unlimited supply of ammunition.
Perished Like Rata
At last the combined force of soldiers
and police numbering fifteen hundred
made a combined attack and drove
them into the shelter of their own
building. Finally with a crash the walls
caved in, and the anarchists were buried
in the flaming ruins. It is not known
how many the desperadoes numbered.
Seven were seen near the close ol th-
fight but all hnve perished.
POLICE OFFICER CHARGED WITH GRAFT
SERGEANT REGAN SUSPENDED FROM POLICE FORCE PENDING OFFICIAL
INVESTIGATION���RESULT OF STATEMENTS MADE
BY BLIND PIG KEEPERS
ACCUSED OFFICER DENIES THE CHARGE
Delmont Zarelli tells Magistrate Carss He Paid Regan $10 a Week for Protection-���At Conclusion of the Case, Chief  McCarvell   Dismissed  the  Officer   and   Reported   the   Matter   to   the   Commissioners.
Today's pol c court pitreedings brought out a case involving a serious
charge against a member of the city
police force. During the hearing of the
case against Delmont Zarelli, charged
with carrying a concelaed pistol, Zarelli
stated that he had on two occasions
paid Se geant Regan, (10 for "protection" in the blind pig bu iness���
the "protection" being described as
warnings to be giv n accused of new
spotters appointed or new members
of the force.
Charts Is Denied
Pending the hearing of the charge
against the officer, Sergeant Regan is
suspended. He stoutly denies the charge
and his statement appears at the end
of this article.    In some quarters it is
hinted thai sinister motives are behind
the accusation. The whole matter is
to be investigated by the police commissioners to whom Chief McCarvell
has reported the case Th charge
���against Zarelli of carrying a revolver was
dismissed.
On a second charge of having run a
blind pig he pleaded guilty last week.
L. Patmore appeared for the defence,
and A. Manson for the prosecution.
Did the Sergeant Gamble?
Mr. Patmore was eBrly on the war
path after Sergeant Regan in the witness
hox had stated that he had found
Zarelli upstairs in the Grill, had asked
him for the pistol, and told him to
appear before the Magistrate.
Mr.  Patmore    wanted to    know if
Sergeant Regan hud not gone there to
play a gambling game. Witness said
he hud gone on official business, und
would not answer the direct question:
"Did you go there to gamble?"
After the Magistrate ruled it might
be asked, Sergeant Regan's answer was:
"No, sir, I did not." He further denied thnt he had been in the habit of
going there to gamble but admitted
hnving played a poker game there some
time ago.
Who Said Gun?
Again Mr. Patmore got busy when
Sergeant Regan declined to tell who had
informed him that Zarelli had a gun
about him.

HOT ON TRAIL
OF BANDIT GANG
SHERIFF  AND  CONSTABLES  AFTER OVERLAND ROBBERS
A Battle Royal la Expected as the
Thieves Are Well Armed���Negro
Porter Who Ordered Them "Begone" Is Fatally Shot.
CONTINUED ON PAGE   4
(Special to the Optimist)
Ogden, Jan. 'I.���Following a clear
trail Sherifi Wilson and a picked posse
of constables are hot after the bandits
who held up thc Overland Limited and
got clear away with $26,000 worth of
booty. As the robbers are heavily
armed it is not expected that they will
tamely submit to be taken. A severe
battle is expected and the mounted
party of pursuers are prepared for it.
The robbers stopped the Overland
Limited by lighting a danger signal.
This .iniple device had the desired effect
of causing the engineer to pull up. Tbe
r ' hers then forced the engineer under
tover of their revolvers to march bark
to the Pullman so that he would not
again set the engine going. On entering
the Pullman car they were met by an
obstreperous negro porter who ordered
them to be gone, so they shot fatally.
The shooting had the effect of searing
the passengers also and the robbers
had an easy passage in combing the
train from end to end and laying in all
the rash and valuables available.

A Luxurious Bath
Helen Gould has a bath that cost
$60,000. For a second after hearing
this a vision of onyx and porphry
rises before you, but in a moment
you recollect the ruins of -ertnin wonderful baths of Ciirucailu apd then you
have the idea.
The bath-house on Miss Gould's
estate, Lundhurst, Irvington -on-the
Hudson, is 138 feet long and sixty-
eight (eel wide, if you can imagine
that. It is of Doric design and is
two stories in height. The front
doors open into it lounging-room, the
floor of cork, the furniture, palms, easy
chairs, divans and Oriental rugs.
Behind this is the bathing pool,
and surrounding it a walk of ceramic
tile and marble, on which are marble benches covered with rugs and
pillows, where the bathers may rest
or from where the friends may watch
them. The glass roof is supported by
sixteen immense marble columns.
The pool itself is lined with green
tiles, with white marble along the
upper edge and base. It is fed from
u spring on the estate, with attachments for using city water in case of
an exceptionally dry season. Of course
arrangements are complete for keeping
the water always fresh. There is also
a perfect system of heating. The depth
���lope* gradually from four to eight feet.
In the dressing-rooms there is every
luxury that could be suggested, including artificial heat with which women
bathers may dry their hair.
During the past few years millionaires hnve been building out-of-door
pools in their summer estates and
surrounding them with pergolas, loggias and tropical gardens, but Miss
Gould's is the most extensive private
bath-house of all.
It was early in the Christian era
that the fashion (or bathing-houses
reached its "height, thc Roman Emperors vieing with each other in erecting
them, Caracella built the most magnificent; Diocletian the most extensive.
In the latter D.OOO persons could bathe
at the same time. They contained
stndia for athletes, conversation halls,
lecture rooms and libraries. In fact, the
people of the twentieth century are
beginning, in their most recent erections
of public bath-houses, not quite where the
Romans left off.
ring the buzzer on your wall that calls
a messenger, and in about two minutes
you'd look 'nto the prettiest pair of
brown girl eyes. And of course, you'd
have to dig into your jeans for a double-
sized tip. But what are tips where girls
are concerned?
The Leipsic bicycle messenger girl
is an innovation. Also she's usually
a queen! And what's more, she typifies
another advance of the fair sex toward
the realms heretofore sacred to men.
There are many girl messenger "boys'
in Leipsic nowadays. They deliver
messages on tricycles, and as for uniforms���why the gaudiest sergeant among
the American messengers isn't in it.
The Lepsic girls wear blue uniforms,
trimmed with green. They also wear
short skirts, and in place of the red
stripes, they wear gold braid and tassels.
Oh, you girl-boys!

A Queation of Sex
It is a lone time since so interesting
a phase of the question of woman's
place in thc world of intellect has come
up as that presented by the proposition
that Mme. Curie bc elected a member of
the French Academy of Sciences. There
is something more dramatic about the
situation presented when the most
distinguished group of scientific men
in the world debates the admission of
a woman into its charmed circle than in
the gradual extension of the field involved in the opening of the doors of
university after university, in country
after country to women students.
If she is admitted, there will be one
woman, out of the handful that devote
their lives to scientific research, d's-
I tinguished by one of the highest of
I scientific honors; if she is kept out, it
will be alleged to be one more proof
of the immesurable differences between the degree of encouragement
and incentive held out to women and
that held out to men for sustained devotion to strenuous intellectual labors.
The   following   story   about   Mayor
Stork appears in the Fernie Free Press:
"When Fred was younger than he is
now, and oscillated between the public
school and his father's wood pile during
his waking hours,   the old   man got
a bargain in a load of about twenty
cords of gnarly cord wood, and closed
a deal with a farmer to deliver it in
his   back   yard.     Afterwards,   Stork,
senior,  and  his  son  were  togther  on
the main street of Ontario the town
that   has  the   honor  of  being   Fred's
birthplace,   when   a   fellow   townsman
greeted   the  elder   and  inquired   how
things were with him.  The old man waa
and   optimist   and   replied:    'Things
i don't look so bad at all at all.   I think
that I can face the winter without any
particular   terrors.     The   pork   barrel
is full and I have twenty cords of rock
elm and maple in the back yard.   What
more could a man want?'
'If the old man had to fiddle that wood
as I had to,' Fred Stork would say in
telling the story, 'he would have been
looking forward to a hard rough winter.' "

Patrick Shell on what he calls his
third trip to the police court is a sorry
spectacle. It was a vag. charge against
him today. Constable McArthur stated
that Pat has been bumming it about
the booze joints pretty, badly for a
month, and has recently taken to
begging, and even using objectionable
methods towards ladies in tyring to
get cash. Patrick admits a weakness
for hooch but has not the other failings.
For his own good the Magistrate has
sentenced him to two months' imprisonment, which doesn't please Pat at all
by the way.

BSCRIBE FOR THE OPTIMIST, ��_S_\__
Tommy Burn?' retirement announcement over in Seattle the other day
brings to mind the first and only meeting between Burns and Sam Langford,
the negro who was to have stacked up
against Tommy in England. This
meeting occurred last July in Reno behind
the old white house at Moana Spring!-.
It was on the Sunday afternoon pre-
ceeding the Jeffries-Johnson clash. The
moving picture operators had taken full
charge of the Jeffries camp. The boxing celebrities and wine agents were
being herded in the space between the
kitchen and the ring platform from
which point they were being drilled
in single file before the cameras.
Burns, dressed in the best effort of
his Sydney tailor, wearing a Parisian
hat and carrying an English walking
stick was waiting patiently for his
number to be called when Otta Floto
leaned over and whispered:
"There's Langford over there by the
door.   Don't you want to meet him?"
Burns' face was a study as he again
regarded the black man. Tommy took
in the hugh biceps which threatened to
hurst through the tight coat sleeves.
He inspected, the great shoulders of
the negro and his own eyes snapped
us he continued to mentally survey the
wonderful fighting machine before him.
Finally he walked back to Floto and
said abruptly: "Bring him over."
Langford walked up with hat in his
hand and stood with his kinky head
bared during the interview. There are
certain tricks of the trade that a colored
pugilist must learn and Langford, like
the late Joe Gans, had mastered them
all. He was just a plain son of Ham
as he shoved his big black hand into
Tommy's gloved palm and said in a low
tone of voice:
"I'm mighty glad to meet you, Mister
Burns."
Tommy mumbled a short reply and
there followed several seconds of silence
at the end of which the Langford grin
returned. He sized Burns up with a
quick ground to hat glance and paid
him the compliment which he probably
felt was due.
"You are sure some man, Mister
Burns," he said with a chuckle. "Yes,
sir, some man is right. 1 take it that
you would make trouble for either of
these fellows that are going to fight
tomorrow."
Tommy stood like a tone under lhe
flattery, but aa Langford was   movng
ay he blurted out: "You don't look
like any slouch yourself." ,
The perspiring moving picture man
howled Burns' name, but Tommy heard
it not. He was watching the dcpnrling
figure and as Sammy disappeared around
the corner of the house he spoke again
as though talking only to himself! "No,
sir, you're no slouch yourself."
MICK WANTED TO KNOW
Can   He   Stand   Treat   From   Old
Lady'* Bottle
Mick Gurvitch charged with having
sold intoxicant without a license pled
not guilty nnd asked Magistrate Carss
if he was allowed to treat a man to a
drink in his hours.
"You see," he explained, "the old
woman keeps a bottle handy for us
when we want a drink and I sometimes
treat, a friend but I don't sell whisky."
"There is no law against a man's
treating a friend to a drink," said the
Magistrate. "The offence charged is
selling."
Gurvitch will appear again next
Saturday with his defence.

No Man Can Serve Two Masters
The trouble with one of the mayoral candidates is thut he wunts to serve
two masters. He wants to be representative of Skeena, B member of the McBride
government, und Mayor of Prince Rupert all at one time.
It is not, as has been said, a cuse of a man wanting to be a Czar. It is a case
of a man wanting to do the impossible. No man living, whatever his Rifts of mind
and character could be representative for Skeena. a member of the McBride government antl Mayor of Prince Rupert all at the same time, without sacrificing
one or other of his represented interests. In the present case, we have reason
for believitiR I'rince Rupert would be sacrificed.
In the first place, no mun has the time to serve both masters. The place for
the member for Skeenu to be in, for the first two months of the year at least, is
at Victoria.. He should be there wat ching legislat ion and lookiiiR after our interests.
He has no business to be in I'rince Rupert. The place for the Mayor of Prince
Rupert to be in for the twelve months of his oflice (and especially for the firsl
two months) is at Prince Rupert. He should s|>cnd the whole of his time in mastering the machinery of the city departments, and luyiiiR out pluns for the year's
work. It has been well said that thc kind of Mayor who could be spared for the
first two months of the year, could be spared for the remaining ten. Which does
Mr. Manson propose to sarriliee in regard to his time, Skeena or Prince Rupert?
In the second place, no man can serve two policies, or two incorporated bodies
whose interests are liable to clash. Within the year several instances have arisen
where the interests of the city clashed with the policy of the McBride government.
The policy of the city is to oppose corporations: the policy of the government
is to befriend and protect corporations. How can Mr. Manson serve the city and
the McBride Rovernement at the same lime.
The dtiieni huve not forgot ton Mr. Manson's difficulty over lhe passing
of the city'-, charter and the granting of the Tsimpsean Power Company's franchise. Their anger at his betrayal ol their interests was only modified by the
knowledRe that he was pledged to serve the McBride go\ernment. It is true
he played ths* city's delegation I sharp trick in decoying them away from the
House while Mr. McBride and his colleagues rushed the third reading ol the T m-
psean bill through. It is true he sal there dumb while the shackling process was
going on. But there was no breaking of oaths. It was understood that Mr. Man-
son was a pledget! supporter of Mr. McBride's.
But if Mr. Munson is elected Mayor of Prince Rupert which does he intend
to sacrifice, the city or the McBride government?
The city is not yet out of the woods in regard to its troubles with the Grand
Trunk Pacific. Mr. McBride clearly showed by his remarks to the cily council
early in November and even more clearly by his private talk with thc Conservative
executive that he was here in the interests of the G. T. P. If troubles arise with
the G. T. P., which will Mr. Manson sacrifice, the interests of the city or the demands
of the "member lor the QltUtd Trunk Pacific?"
There tuny come a time after Ihe city has grown up and prospered and many
of u�� have a lot of lime on our hands when we can afford to elect a fancy Mayor
of the absen.ee kind, or to mix'up politics with our municipal affairs. Bui the
time is not yet. We have too much real work to do, too many real problems to
face.
Fortunately there is another candidate for the office, one who has served the
city in its firsl council, who is conversant with the work of the departments, who
is not tied up wilh pledges to any government or any political party, and who
can stay with his duties lor twelve months in the year.
No man can serve two masters.

Accused could not give the date of
his transaction with Regan. He thought
it was before Mr. Patmore and thn chief
of police had gone to investigate the
books of the business he ran���the
Alaska Hotel. As far as he knew he
had given money only twice to Regan.
The transaction took place at night
since the Sergeant was on night duty, and
thc cash was handed over in his little
office.
There existed an unwritten understanding between accused and the
Sergeant that, the sum of $10 a week
should ensure the "protection" mentioned previously. Regan would drop
round occasionally and accused would
know when it was "up to him to come
through with the ten spot."
This arrangement had been made in
accused's house about a week previous
to the handing over of the first ten
dollar bill.
Sergt. Regan's Statement
Asked by thc Optimist for a statement regarding the charges Sergeant
Regan said: "The charges are absolutely false. I am suspended, but I
appeal to the public and my friends
to reserve their judgment of the matter
until they hear my statement to be
made at the proper time."

Chief McCarvell said in regard to the
matter:

Notes and Comments
Cannot the Empire be modern, even in its news columns. It was bad enough
to print John Armstrong's picture two weeks ago with the announcement that
he was sick in bed in Montreal, eleven days after poor John had "been laid away
in his grave. Now it beats even that. It prints a picture of "the peculiar cigar
shaped boat in which Bobby Leach intends to go over Niagara Falls," "when
satisfactory financial arrangements can be made."
The truth is that Bobby Leach sent the boat over the Horseshoe Falls for
a test some weeks ago, and it was wrecked on the rocks beneath. Bobby was
arrested later on for speeding in his auto in an attempt to catch the wreckage
before it entered the whirlpool. The case has been tried, a fine indicted, the money
paid and the records closed, and some of us in Prince Rupert looked on it as
ancient history.
Wake up.   The world is moving.
Will Mr. Manson nccept the challenge to postpone his meeting till tomorrow
night, and voice his criticisms in the presence of the aldermen? Or is he the kind
of critic who prefers to speak in the absence of those who know the truth? Some
of his friends should explain to him the virtues of the square deal.

READ THE OPTIMIST AND
THE ADS WELL
Pressed to give the informer's name,
Regan said that if the Magistrate
chose to rule thnt private police affairs
be published in open court he would
name the man otherwise he refused to
do so.
Chief McCarvell through Mr. Manson
announced that he was ready to have
the name given whereupon Sergeant '
Regan said Constable Carney had told
him, at which Mr. Patmore shrugged
his shoulders and smiled.
Protection of Court Required
Zarelli in the witness box told his
s ory of how he had been threatened,
antl had told the chief of police about
it. He decribed the occasion o( his
having been found by Sergeant Regan
antl asked to hand over the pistol,
the Sergeant had said to him: "Don't
you sell any more whisky." Accused
took this as a friendly hint. He seemed
to think the Sergeant had had plenty
of chances of learning that Black Jack
was played in town as he was about
pretty often.
At this point accused claimed the
protection of the court in regard to his
evidence.
Said He Had Paid $10
Mr. Patmore then asked him what
were his business relations with Sergeant Regan previously. Accused said
he had paid the Sergeant $10 "for
selling whisky." He explained thel
phrase to the Magistrate to mean "for
being allowed to sell" using the words :
"Well, he told me that he would give
me protection."
"That is, protection in selling liquor?"
said Mr. Patmore.        ���-���~
Accused replied yes, and further explained that the understanding was
that Regan should warn him of the
appointment of new spotters or new
officers. This, however, fcegan had not
ever actually done.
Told of Business Affairs
Cross examined by Mr. Manson
accused gave details of his interest in
the Alaska Dance Hall, and his dealings
with a man named Sylvester (who has
skipped from a blind pig chaise). He
had told this man he would "be good
for" a supply of whisky when Sylvester
had taken some soft drink stock from

"It seems to me," said De Borem,

stranger in a railroad station just as
a train was about to start, and asked:
"Are you going by this train?" "I
am." "Have you any lugguRc?" "No."
"Well, my friend, you might do me a
favor. I have two big trunks and
they always make me pay extra for one
of them; it will cost you nothing."
"Yes, I see; but I haven't a ticket."
"Why, I thought you said you were
going by thin train?" "So, I am; I'm
one of the company's inspectors." The
extra was paid.

The Optimist does not publish this as its own opinion of Mr. Manson. All
the articles under this heading are taken from the Empire, a journal which
today is appealing 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.
"The humiliating position which Mr. Manson occupies today is indeed pitiable
to behold. Only last fall he practically held Prince Rupert in the palm of his
hand as was clearly shown by his election to the provincial legislature.
Today his supporters are obliged to engage a brass band each night in order
to bolster up his attempt to become a dual represenative in seeking the Mayor's
chair. Hdw have the mighty fallen. What a warning to others not to outrage
public sentiment, especially after having sacrificed the people's interests.
Had Mr. Manson gone to Victoria and championed the people's cause at all
costs, he could have returned to Prince Rupert an invincible hero, with the brass
band being brought into requisition to head an enthusiastic procession from the
wharf to his own fireside.   But alas, there was no such reception to greet him on
his return.
Still he has the nerve to ask the very people whom he outraged to stifle their
conscience and give him a vote of endorsation by simply having the audacity to
stretch out his hand with the admonishment of 'peace be still,' and immediately
to our everlasting disgrace there came a perceptible calming of the angry waves.
"Hud he, (Mr. Manson) had the good sense to keep out of this civic battle
when it was being raged, in order that each individual citizen might not be overpowered by those who aim to grab everything for themselves, his best friends
could have been spared the unpleasant duty of showing him up in his true light."

PORTUGAL RESTLESS
Extremists Are Gaining Ascendency
Over Moderates
London, Jan. 2. ���'Special.���Tha Lon-
dcjri Chronicle reports in its columns
this morning that the Portuguese Republic is restless owing to the extremists
being backed by Camorra in opposition
to the moderates. It would appear that
u crisis is about to envelop this newest
addition to the list of republican countries. The difficulty may lie only temporary but it is believed to have influences nf extraneous power and may-
end in the return of the monarchy.
Today's police court was a busy one.'
Several charges of illicit traffic in liquor I
were upon the case-sheets and a good
deal of evidence was taken regarding]
them.
Nick P. Smith was charged with i
having sold intoxicating liquor on the
2t>th inst. in the National Hotel on
Fulton street. He said he hadn't sold
liquor of any kind since he went into
the clothing business on December 1st.
His manner was charming and his smile
delightfully winning.
Nevertheless, John Johhson gave evidence to the effect that he had been
supplied with rye whisky in that hotel
on that date, and Sergt. Regan stated
that he had several times seen accused'
. hurriedly remove whisky glasses from j
' thc counter of the place which was
fitted up in the style of a bar.
The witness Johnson declared that he
had bought three drinks of whisky and
a small bottle of whisky for $1.50. and
that accused hail had a glass with him.
Accused who admitted that he was
one of three partners owning the National Hotel business, said he could
bring any number of witness to prove
his innocence. He thought that his
partner! Pavlov and Sekolitch who
had more to do with the actual working
of the place were better subjects for
enquiry than himself.
Ordered by the Magistrate to get
ready his defence on the charge, he
said he could bring a whole bunch of
witnesses and asked how many the
court would like.
"That's up to you." replied the Magistrate, and accused withdrew to assemble
his forces.
