ST. ANDREW'S SOCIETY
Business   Meeting  and   Election  of
Officers Tonight
In a few days more Prince Rupert
will be in the throes of an aldermanic
campaign.    Already the  first guns of
the fight have been fired and through
the smoke can be seen the line-up of
the intending  belligerents.    Whatever
else may result from the contest one
I thing at least is certain, the personnel
i of  the   administration   will   undergo
much change.  Only three of its members
are trying  for  re election;    Alderman
Pattullo,  Alderman  Hilditch  and  Al-
j derman Smith, so that at least five new
faces will be seen at the council board.
Late as the hour is it is just possible
that before the polling day arrives the
number of candidates will be added to,
but up to the present time they read
I as follows:
Ward One���Alderman Smith, G. W.
Kerr, Dr. W. S. Hall, and John Currie.
Ward Two���Aldermen Pattullo and
Hilditch, J. A. Kirkpatrick, M. M.
Stephens, W. S. Benson, D. H. Morrison,
G. C. Emerson, E. H. Mortimer and S.
M. Newton.
i These are the men who have signified
I their intention of running in one way
[��r another. A glance over their names
I indicates clearly that real estate will
be well represented about half of the
| candidates being prominently associated
, with that avocation.
Among the possible candidates must
be included the name of Mr. C. Peck
who has been persistently approached
on the subject. While admitting the
possibility of his entering the field after
the campaign has developed, Mr. Peck
in the meantime says he has not made
up his mind.
Tonight there will be an important
meeting of the Prince Rupert St. Andrew's Society in the Carpenter's Hall
which all members or intending members are particularly requested to attend.
Office bearers for 1911 will be elected
and the general affairs of the society
will be discussed.

COTTAGE CITY IN
Tacoma, Dec. 27.���Two masked highwaymen   encountered   John   Edgar,  a
department   manager   for  the   Pacific
Brewing Si Malting company, at South
Twelfth and R streets last night and compelled  him   to  strip  off  his  clothing.
One bandit was armed with a revolver
and the other with a big club.   After
getting   Edgar's   garments,   they   proceeded to go through the pockets while
he stood shivering in the cold.   Taking
about $3 in change the thieves threw
the clothes aside and let Edgar dress.
They had made good their escape long
before the police got word from Edgar.
Tacoma is experiencing an epidemic
of holdups. Highway robberies are of
nightly occurrence. Thus far, the
police have been unable to gel even a
trace of the thugs, and those who have
to go home late at night on dark streets
are worrying.

There was a side issue to the blind
pig charge against Natt Carney and
Robert Staerriek in today's police court.
A man named Zarelli was charged with
unlawfully having in his possession a
revolver. Accused said he had been
menaced by the two first named and
had told the Chief of Police of his
intention to carry the weapon. Chief
McCarvell said he had told Zarelli that
his proper means of redress if menaced
was to lay the necessary information
with the police and leave it to them, not
to carry a concealed weapon.
It was alleged incidentally that the
two charged with illegally selling liquor
are sore at Zarelli for having been the

asked for time to prepare his case
and take legal advice and the case was
remanded till Tuesday. January 3rd.
A further charge against the same
men of having kepi a common gaming
house was also remanded, Zarelli asserting that while a game might have been
played once in his house for money the
practise was not regular. He remarked
that there existed several common
gaming houses in the city, and Chief
McCarvell immediately called upon
him to lodge the information against
them if he desired action to be taken.

I       ARRIVES LATE
Pacific   Coast   Boat   Is   Delayed   by
Rough Weather
Almost a day overdue the Cottage
City made a welcome appearance in
the Prince Rupert harbor this morning.
Her delay in arriving was occasioned
by the extremely heavy weather which
she encountered off the Alaskan coast.
Up beyond Wrangell the captian reports
that a perfect blizzard is blowing, and
all the way down they had a generous
lull of snow.
The temperature nearly played havoc
with the instruments on account of
its violent transitions from comparative
mildness to freezing coldness. At one
point the thermometer went down to
44 below. There were only a few
passengers for Prince Rupert, the bulk
of them being due further south. She
carried a mixed cargo. It included the
donkey engine for the hydraulic outfit
of Mr. Grade of the Islands. The
boiler and the other parts of the outfit
arrived some time ago.
PRICE OF UPPER BERTH
Montreal, Dec. 29.���It was definitely
announced here today by the Pullman
Company that a reduction of 20 per
cent would be made in the price for the
upper berths in Canada, on lines including the Grand Trunk and Grand
Trunk Pacific. The Canadian companies
concerned have made no statement as
yet. It is expected that a flar rate of
S1.60 may become general in the near
future.

members protecting against clauses in
a by-law. He said that such objection
could be recorded in the minutes of the
council.
At the close of the meeting Alderman
Lynrh tabled a report drawn up by the
engineer at the request of the council
upon the cost of a sewerage system for
Section 1.   The report is the result ol
a request from the residents of Borden
street for a sewer upon which Alderman
Lynch moved thc resolution to have the
report submitted.    In the report  the
cost of the sewer for Section 1 (which
includes Borden street I is estimated at
$191,291.00,   of   which   the   city   will
provide nearly $40,000.  The debentures
would be, according to the report, extended over forty years, which would

Vancouver.
Mr. and Mrs. Maurice Bondeaux have
gone to Southern California for the rest

Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Gilmore left last
night by the Prince George for Victoria.
No Engagement Ring
The diamond engagement ring as a
symbol of plighted faith is a "symbol of
inferiority," according to Dr. M. Ker-
shet, one of New Jersey's leading
physicians whose engagement to Mias
Gertrude Risker has just been announced.
At a reception where the announcement
was made, Dr. Kershet surprised the
guests by giving Miss Risker a set of
elegantly bound books by Victor Hugo,
Balzac, George Bernard Shaw, Ibsen,
Tolstoi, Zangwill and others, instead
of an engagement ring. Speaking of
hia departure from the time-honored
custom, he said:
"In times long gone by, the man
who captured his female partner or
purchased her from her parents with
presents, when she was his, placed a
crude ring upon her finger. It was
regarded as a symbol of inferiority
and made the woman appear in the
light of personal property. Miss Risker
will not be my chattel but my equal,
my companion and helpmate."
One Hour and a HalftoDresa
"A correctly dressed woman cannot
dress herself in less than one hour and
a half."
Mme. Marguerita Sylvia, the prima
donna, thus sets the time limit of
the feminine sartorial function. She
divides thc time this way:
Minutes
Bath  15
Corset and underwear  15
Massage and powder  16
Arranging the hair  16
Hat  10
Arranging the gown 25
These, Mme. Sylvia adds, are only
the necessities. Every other morning
she must nllow for these items:
Minutes
Manicure  30
Waving the hair  45
Thorough massage .' 60
Mme. Sylvia offers all this to counteract the damage done the cause by
Judge Crowe, of New York, who says:
"A woman has no regard for time; she
will take half an hour to adjust three
ha'r pms. Women take too much time
in dressing and primping. They have
no idea how much annoyance it causes
their husbands, friends and admirers."
"After all," concluded Mme. Sylvia,
"the question simmers down to this:
would a man prefer to wait for an
attractive woman, or to have an un.
attractive woman waiting for him?
Whatever is worth having is worth
waiting for."
A Visit to Tolatoi
Jane Addams of Hull House has the
following interesting account of a visit
to Count Tolstoi which illustrates the
difference between the points of view
of the two philanthropists.   She says
"The gentleman who introduced me
endeavored to make Hull House appear much more noble and unique
than I should have venture to do.
Tolstoi, standing by, clad in his peasant
garb, listened gravely, but, glancing
distrustfully at the sleeves of my
traveling gown, which unfortunately
at that season were monstrous in size,
took hold of an edge and pulling out
one sleeve to an interminable breadth
said quite simply that "there was
enough stuff on one arm to make a
frock for a little girl," and asked me
directly if I did not find "such a dress
a "barrier to the people." I was too
disconcerted to make a very clear explanation, although I tried to say that
monstrous as my sleeves were they
did not compare in size with those
of the working girls in Chicago, and
that nothing would more effectively
separate me from "the people" than a
cotton blouse following the simple
lines of the human form; even if I
had wished lo imitate him and "dress
as a peasant," it would have been hard
to choose which peasant among the 86
nationalities we had recently counted
in our ward.
"Fortunately the countess came to
my rescue with a recital of her former
attempts to clothe hypothetical little
girls in yards of material cut from
a train and other superfluous parts of
her best gown, until she had been
driven to a stand, which she advised me
to take at once."
Keep the Huaband's Love
Don't reprove John when he brings
you a box of bon bona or a flower, says
Margaret Sangster in the Woman's
Home Companion. Receive the gifts
on the contrary, with an expression of
gratification. Many wives check their
husbands when they bring home little
gifts which have cost money, and this
on the ground of economy. It is seldom
other than a mistake. Economize in
another direction, if John is too lavish
in his presents on you.
Don't be so absorbed in the children

company and only a fragment of your

Don't be vexed if you have to prompt

lady, that you have at all times ��� r.-ady
welcome for his people when they visit
you.
Plaids in Favor
The old favorite plaid, is again in
favor. It has one reliable point in
the popularity accorded to different
fabrics; after short rests this satisfactory material invariably bobi up
aerenly and successfully takes its wearer
through a season. The covered surface
is dirt defying; it ia effectively allied
with plain materials in dress, nnd it
gives a smart trimming for velvet,
cloth or silk. For little girls plaid is
always good style. When trimmed
with plain collar and cuffs, or with
one-toned bands of contrasting color.
it can be made distinctive and modish.
In Paris some of the finest coats and
dresses are exploited in plaid by the
leading houses that make children's
garments.
OUR DAILY   RECIPE
Oyatera Creamed and Fried
Fried oysters for home use arc more
delicate when done in bread crumbs
then In cracker dust. They should only
be dipped once in the egg and crumb.
otherwise they are too stiff and crusty-
Butter is a better frying medium than
deep fat.
For creamed oysters do not cook them
too long in the mixture or they will ba
tough. The edges should just ihrlvel-
These can be served in ramekins or
patte shells and they are excellent

ADVERTISING PRINCE RUPERT
The letter from a Prince Rupert man. which we published on December 24th,
in which the writer told of a real estate man who mailed an Optimist to an outside
man to whom he wished to sell a lot, and mailed an Empire to another outside
man from whom he wished to buy a lot, giving as his reason to the letter-writer
that one paper was "boosting" the town, and the other was "knocking" the town,
is recalled by three letters which arrived at the Optimist office this week. They
indicate the great extent to which a newspaper may attract attention or repel
inquirers.
A perusal of them would make any man or journal hesitate before indulging
in the luxury of extravagant condemnation of men and things in Prince Rupert,
and would redouble their satisfaction at every accepted occasion for heralding
forth the attractions of Prince Rupert as a desirable place for the man who wants
to tattle down in a law-abiding and progressive community, there to invest his
oapital, his character and his energies.
The lirst letter is from a Seattle business man who says: "I have at a previous
time visited Prince Rupert, and am very much interested in its future growth."
He wishes more information about Prince Rupert to send to friends of his, in
the East to whom he has spoken of Prince Rupert and who are anxious for information.
The second letter is from a man in Vista Grande, California, who says: "I
have been studying particularly your progress and demand for men who are
willing to contribute their share toward the development of the city." He is a
general contractor who is looking about among tbe new cities for the best place
to locate in���and so far favors Prince Rupert.
The third and most interesting letter of all comes from the far East. It is
dated from Constantinople, and posted at Tanta, in Roumania. There, by the
shores of the tideless sea, the news of this young seaport on the North Pacific
has penetrated. The writer, a young English marine engineer, says he has heard
of the building of Prince Rupert and is convinced of the advantages the city can
offer to men of good character, who have a little capital, some special knowledge
and a willingness to work. Like the two other inquirers he writes for some special
information to help him to a decision in the matter.
Following so closely the letter which we printed, showing the uses to which
certain of our newspapers are being put to, these three letters should give us thought.
They indicate the extent to which the eyes and ears of the outside world are straining
towards Prince Rupert. We cannot and must not allow the city to be made a
football of to be kicked about in the mud as a satisfaction for personal revenge
or to show how skilful a kicker one can be.
Commercially, and from the point of view of the isolated instance, it was
a clever thing of the real estate dealer to mail that copy of the Empire and let
it knock the town. It helped him to get the lot he wanted. But in its final result
it will be a bad thing for the town, and may even be a bad thing for that particular
real estate man. Il means that somewhere there is a man who has been frightened
off Prince Rupert as a field for investment,a man who is telling his neigbours who
go to him for advice knowing of his investment, "Don't put your money there.
The place is no good. I got hold of one of their papers and I know. The place
is in the hands of a bunch of boodlers and incompetents. I was pretty lucky to
get rid of my lot. It'll be a lesson to me. My money goes into prairie townsites
now."  The trail of the slanderer can never be overtaken.
The truth is that man for man,Prince Rupert has a better class of citizens ,
than any city in the Dominion. The standard of their earning is greater, the
standard of their living is higher, they have more average wealth, they have more
houseowners per capita, and the general standard of culture is higher. We have
leas crime than any other city.andthe Optimist ventures the assertion thatwe have
more university graduates in Prince Rupert per capita than in any other city :
in Canada. The wonder is that anyone who raises the cry that the city is given
over to a boodling outfit, and advertises to the world that we are a lot of incompetents is not ���shall we say. laughed out of town.

Old-timers of Prince Rupert who
recall the first Masquerade Dance held
here, experienced a pleasant renewal of
its exhilaration and delight in last
night's most successful masquerade in
the Maclntyre Hall.
Between forty and fifty couples gaily-
dressed in original and clever disguises
took part in the dance, and kept each
other guessing identities until the moment for unmasking when surprises were
sprung all round.
There was a wonderful variety of
costumes ranging from the ferocious-
looking garb of the pirate bold, to the
sweetly modest dress of the pretty
Puritan maid. Jack and Jill were there,
a perfect couple, in whom later were!
recognized Mr. and Mrs. Robtrson. To
Mrs. Roberson's enthusiasm and unsparing energy the success of the masquerade is due. The dance ran smoothly
and delightfully to music of the very
best provided by Gray's splendid orchestra, and nearly every number was en
cored.
Refreshments were provided in the
hall, the good things being prepared
by the ladies who assisted in organizing
the dance.
Fortune certainly attended the merry
function throughout as the rain yesterday
let up most considerately at the hour
for the masqueraders to assemble and
consequently the bright costumes ran
no risk of being marred on the way to
the hall.

WATERFRONT LOT
AT VANCOUVER
REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN PURCHASED BY G. T. P.
Wharfage Is on Burrard Inlet and" In
at Present Owned by Albion Iron
Works-Officials Will Not Make
Statement.
That the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, st'eking wharfage on Burrard Inlet,
has purchased ths' Albion Iron Works
property at thc foot of Westminster
avenue and securer) the waterfront immediately across the C. P. R. tracks
from the iron works site is the statement persistently repeated in real estate
murine and railway circles today.
For the past week there has been
great activity in Vancouver property
in the vicinity of the waterfront from
Evans, Coleman & Evans' wharf to the
Hastings mill and the current rumor was
that the new transcontinental was
endeavoring to obtain foreshore and
adjacent property somewhere in that
locality for the purpose of providing
wharf facilities for its Vancouver business.
The iron works property is situated
at the foot of Westminster avenue,
running practically to Gore avenue on
the east. The C. P. R. tracks are immediately to the north along the waterfront. All thc foreshore flanking the
iron works site is owned by the C. P. R-
Mr. Edward Mahon, one of the Vancouver capitalists interested in the
Albion iron works site was asked for
confimation of the rumors. He would
not make any statement about the
matter.

News from Sgakway, Alaska, tells
of the interesting way in which Camp
Skagway No. 1, the mother camp of
the Arctic Brotherhood, celebrated the
triumph of the sun over the powers
ot darkness on the eve of the shortest
day of thc year. Thc exercises were
held out doors. The brotherhood,
in full regalia, pursued and captured
the "prince of darkness" and dragged
him through the principal streets to the
public common.
The evil one, csca|-ed but was again
pursued, overtaken, tied to a stake
and burned to ashes, while tom-toms
raised a frightful din and fireworks
were burned. As the fire died away, a
tableau was unveiled, representing the
"Queen of thc Arctic" seated on the
pedestal of virtue. Thc brothers gathered about the queen and sang the camp
anthem, "Hail to Our Arctic Queen!"
The principal underlying the festival is that observed in thc diets of the
ancient Scandianvians, out of which
thc Christmas festival is reputed to
have grown.

Letters to the Editor
Lectures the Editor
Dear Sir,���Although I admire the
elegant composition of your editorial
on the Mayoral situation in Wednesday's
issue of the "Optimist" the tone and
manner of the criticism lacks impartiality. The first argumtr.t of your
issue in the matter of procuring a
capable person for such an important
office is deserving of attention. But
quoting the opinion of another press
on Mr. Manson's character and capabilities as being conclusive of his qualities and summing up, "truly not a very-
desirable candidate for Mayor" is I
think unreasonable.
When such an important issue is at
stake the result of which Prince Rupert's
future is dependent, both the good
and bad qualities of tbe candidate should
be given publicity and not those opinions or assertions that are satisfying
to the palate. Surely Mr. Manson
possesses some good qualities and Alderman Mobley some faults. There is
some good in the worst of men.and some
bad in the best of tbem. Why therefore not make known both sides to the
FREIGHT   AND   PASSENGER   AGENT        issue?

Prince Rupert, B.C.
Fair  criticism   I  appreciate  but  engineered charges for argumentative purposes without an atom of substantiated ,
evidence is deplorable.   Your  assertions
of Mr. Manson's double dealing during
the   local   option   campaign   was   un-'
substantiated and the demand that he
must   prove  himself  innocent   or  else'.
the presumption will be to the contrary
is unjust.
British jurisprudence places tbe burden '
of proof upon the accuser.  Mr. Manson's ;
reputation is excellent and his caps-   !
bilities   to   handle   municipal   matters'
are undisputed.    Not  a single proven
chart's- against his character has come
to my knowledge.   Your characterization
of   Alderman   Mobley   may   be   well
meant, but the fact of a man proving I
successful  in  business does not  prove)
him capable of managing the affairs of
such a gigantic but delicate yet intricate
nature  with   which   Prince  Rupert   is
confronted.    There are men who have
made a great success in business who
are incompetent  to  handle municipal
matters.   Alderman Mobley's character
may be exwllent  but character alone
cannot   surmount   political   difficulties
and make the wheel turn in the right
direction.    During his term in office his
abilities did not show superiority and
therefore   deserving   of   extraordinary
attention.    My plea  is to give each
man the honor due him.    I sincerely
trust that '.he ;...... will deal with such
an important issue at Rtake in a just
and honorable manner which will reflect
credit upon itself and at the same time
pro bono publico.
Youre truly,
MORRIS SOSKIN
supplied by responsible parties. Mr.
Sockin may remember that we offered
to give our authorities if Mr. Manson
would make statemeni.and let the public
judge who is speaking the truth. Failing
his acceptance we are willing to let the
public draw their ow-n conclusions of
Mr. Manson's guilt or innocence. We,
do not think Mr. Sockin would remain
silent under such a charge were he
a public man and innocent.
The simile drawn from British jurisprudence is not a true one. Mr. Manson
is not on trial for an infraction of the
Criminal Code. The usage is quite
different in a case where a man's political
honor is at stake.
It is not correct to state that Mr
Manson's political reputation is "excellent" and "undisputed." likewise his
"capabilities to handle municipal affairs." Tbe facts are that Mr. Manson's
political reputation has been criticised
by several newspapers, and by many
speakers, while he has never even been
trusted to handle municipal affairs.
His capability to handle municipal
affairs was disputed by over half of
the electors at the last municipal elections Mr. Sockin may remember.
Mr. Sockin is also guilty of an offence
against laws of logic in his statement
that Aid. Mobley's abilities during his
term of office "did not show superiority."
To correct it he must add "to Morris
Sockin," which is quite another matter.
The evidence that his abilities showed
superiority to some, is that a majority
of his colleagues���the men who were
best able to judge his abilities���selected
him and are endorsing him as their
choice for Mayor.
Perhaps Mr. Sockin will pardon the
occasion which compels us to follow on
his heels and criticize a letter which
despite some defects in reasoning is as
admirable in its tone as in its literary
quality.

The Editor'* Reply
Mr. Sockin is in error in accusing us
of being unreasonable in accepting the
Empire's opinion of Mr. Manson's
unfitness for office. As the organ of
Mr. Manson's candidature, its real
opinion of that gentleman, written in
its unbiased days, has special value.
Of "engineered charges without
an atom of substantiated evidence" we
know nothing. Everything the Optimist
has said in regard to the charges of
double dealing has been based on what
we believe to  be reliable information
Westholme Company Quotes Prices
For All Classes
Tenders for the two million feet of
lumber for tbe improvement scheme
of the city of Prince Rupert were received by the council last night and
referred to committee for consideration.
The Goretown Sawmill company wrote
the council to the effect that while they
could not compete with the Southern
B. C. sawmillers for the order, they
could furnish small lots at $15.15 per
thousand feet. The tender called for
three classes of lumber, spruce dimension, spruce decking, and fir decking.
The Westholme Lumber company was
the only firm quoting a price for each
class.   The tenders were as follows:
Westholme Lumber company���1,250,-
000 ft. spruce dimension $15.25 per
thousand; 380,000 ft. spruce decking
$15.25 per thousand: 370,000 ft. fir
decking $19.
J. T. Todd���$20 per thousand ft. of
spruce dimension, and $20 per thousand
ft. of fir decking.
Swanson Bay company���$18 per thousand ft. spruce dimension, and $18 per
thousand ft. of spruce decking.

LICENSE FEES DOUBLED
Chilliwack    Council    Raise*   Them
From $400 to $800
Hotel license fees in Chilliwack have
been raised from $400 to $800. This
action, which was taken at a special
meeting of the council, was not unexpected to the hotel men. The new
charges will become effective January
16. The question of the incesse of
licenses was introduced but left over
for the new council to decide. The
present city by-law dealing with the
matter limits the number of licenses
to two until the population numbers
2000.

The application of J. Vokulvitch for
a permit to build a boarding house on
Fourth avenue in Block 5, Section 5,
again came up for some discussion at
the meeting of the city council last
night when Mr. Secretary Woods read
a petition signed by a number of the
residents in the vicinity of the proposed
structure strongly objecting to the
issuance of such a permit. The communication stated that the house proposed to be built there was a boarding
house of inferior type.
The history of that class of house was
already known in I'rince Rupert, and
there are several valuable residences
in the near vicinity of thc site, said the
petitioners. They calimed the presence
of such a building would materially
depreciate the value of their property.
They therefore asked that the permit
be not granted.
Alderman Pattullo facetiously remarked that as the proposal seemed to
have a financial aspect they should
remit the matter to his eommitt<!C. The
council acted upon the suggestion in so
far that they remitted it to committee���
not the finance committee.
