[ES1DENTS OF SHACK-TOWN
BESIEGE THE CITY HALL
���armed by Aid. Naden's Notice of Motion, Shack-
Dwellers on G. T. P. Reserve Petition Council To
Be Allowed to Stay Till the Spring:���
Their Request   May be Granted
|Tlu'   Assyrian   came   down   like   a
Il on the fold!"���Well not the Assyrian
Jelly, nor, strictly speaking, the fold,
; something similar.   The inhabitants
Ithi- jungle known as the G. T. P.
am swept down in their hordes on
sacred precincts of the City Hall
night.   They came to meet that
lion  of Aid.  Naden's  to  clear  off
shack  dwellings,  with  a  petition
ting leave to remain at least until
i severe weather is over.   As a result
health   committee   will   visit   the
grve to see whether the clearance of
shucks there may safely be deferred
tot until spring.
Had Four Arguments
In four grounds the shack dwellers'
���tion was based.   First that if they
I evicted there are no homes available
I ti.. m la go to in the city within the
ts of their pockets as regards rental,
nnd, thai the season is ill-chosen for
order to remove owing to the in-
Dency of the weather.    Third, that
ri' are no diseased amongst them due
nsanitary renditions nor are their
flings a menace to other citizens;
fourth, lhat  they  are  as  moral,
ibiding and |>eaceful a community
other group in the city.
I Invaded the Council Chamber
p-rived  with their  petition  to this
ct  bearing about  fifty  names,  the
ck dwellers Tiled into the City Hall
| by W. H. Montgomery.   City Clerk
KmI* was reading the minutes.    His
Worful  voice  was  drowned   by  the
i'ly tramp-tramp of the deputation's
.   By twos and by tens the army
nvaders thronged into the hall.   All
available chairs were occupied.   The
iss   dwellers   leaned   against   safes,
linn   desks,   against   walls,   packed
M sardines.    Behind the Mayor
press  table,  was  soon   a  serried
,��'. .-.\ of them;   and in the corridor

Aid. Naden Gave Reasons
|n answer to a question Aid. Naden
��� the grounds on which his motion
based,  mainly  the  very  adverse
ft   of   the   medical   health   officer
Ming the condition of the shacks
i ho reserve.    He maintained that
hack dwellers had received about
months' notice to quit, since it
ill that time since the shacks had
ixamined and condemned by the
lh officer whose report  had  been
in open council.
Ths. reason for the introduction of the
i"n now he said, was because they
had to wait until a plan of the
pipt in question had been prepared
l"H city engineer.   To delay taking
"'���   would   only   mean   the   same
a,|nn for postponement again later
Hq   regretted   having   to   incon-
������pr'' any section of citizens but in
this case he had to.
Council  May   Inspect   Shacks
Aid. Naden then read his motion
which embodied in detail a sweeping
clearance of the shack district of the
reserve at ten days' notice. It was
suggested that the petition be referred
to the health committee and the motion
allowed to stand over meantime.
When Aid. Lynch suggested that it
did seem a little far fetched to say as
the medical officer's report said: that
all the shacks were insanitary. Aid.
Hilditch arose with the suggestion that
the council should go and examine the
place for themselves. W. H. Montgomery here referred the Mayor and
council to the scavengers' report on
the state of the shacks.
Fleas and Bubonic Plague
Since the weather is so cold now,
thought Aid. Pattullo, those shacks
cannot be quite such a menace to the
town as reported. He thought that the
clearance might take place more fitly
in spring. Certainly it would be a
hardship on the shack dwellers to have
to clear out just now.
On the other hand Aid. Barrow, who
spoke from personal experience of Bombay, stated that similar huts there had
harboured the rats that fed the fleas
that spread bubonic plague. He held
that the council could not but support
the view of tin' medical health officer,
but was ready to favor an extension
of time on the understanding that the
shack dwellers would at once endeavor
to secure other quarters.
Did Not Wish to Be Hard
Aa a tenant himself of premises previously adjacent to the alleged insanitary area, Aid. Mobley viewed the shack
dwellers petition and deputation with
a kindly eye. He thought them a
decent   looking   bunch   of   men   even

Mr. Patmore knows.
BIG TRUNK LINE
THROUGH AIR
FLIES   FROM   BOSTON   TO
NATIONAL CAPITAL
THE
Branches Projected to Serve Large
Inland Cities Such as Cleveland
and Chicago���Drexel Fails to Defeat Dead Man's Record.
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Nov. 29.���Charles Glidden,
the famous aviator, announced this
morning the successful formation of thc
Aerial Navigation company. It is said
the company has been backed by a
large capital and that its first great
line will run from Boston to New York,
Philadelphia, Bultimore and Washington. This is to be the great trunk line
from which there is to be numerous
branches to inland cities, such as Cleveland and Chicago. Vanneman, who was
the constructor of Wellman's balloon
to cross the Atlantic, has been engaged
and is now at work upon the first big
dirigibles for the new lines.
Dead Man the Winner
New York, Nov. 29���The Aero Club
of America has decided that Anthony
Drexel did not beat the late Ralph
Johnston's figures in his flight at Philadelphia last Wednesday. The record
made by Johnston was 9714 feet, while
the record of Drexel was only 9450 feet.

ITALIAN LABORER IS FINED
FOR STRIKING CONTRACTOR
Sequel to the Row at S. H. Watson's Contract on Second Avenue last   Saturday���Some   of   the
Evidence Rather Amusing���Peacemaker Got Hit on the Nose
For banging S. H. Watson over the
head with a dinner can Antonelli An-
gelo was fined $10 and costs by Magistrate Carss today. The Magistrate
took a night to think it over and decided to dismiss the charge against
Angelo's brother Allersandio of assisting
in the assault.
Dispute Over Wages
About thirty Italians were present
when the case was heard and there were
twenty of them on the list of witnesses
for thc defence. V. Bassobert acted as
interpreter. S. H. Watson had live
witnesses who told princpailly how they
had seen ,the scuffie and the blows
struck while they were at work on the
Second avenue contract on Saturday.
The dispute arose over Antonelli's time
whether 55, 57, 69, or 60 hours. Of
course he stuck out for 60. The contractor raised the amount from 55 to 59
but held out there. Then the trouble
began.
How the Row Started
Funny things happened. Antonelli's
brother Allessandro came up us peacemaker, and quit with Antonelli. The
men were walking up a path past thc
cut and Watson was following them
ordering them off the job.
"After you my dear Alphonse" (or
words to that effect) said Allessandro
with Itailan politeness, to the contractor who didn't quite see it. A push,
a pretty phrase or two, and bang, bang
went the dinner can.
Peacemaker Got Hit
Allessandro the peacemaker, according
to his countrymen's evidence "did
nothing but receive a blow on the nose."
He was all balled up between his brother
and the contractor in the battle.
A Vivid  Picture
Nikloa Silvestrini pictured the scene
in the single sentence "Alessandro took
his hat, and the blow on the nose and
ALL BRITAIN EXCITED OVER THE ELECTIONS
Seventy Thousand People Hold Mass Meeting in Belfast to Protest Against Home Rule Being Granted to Ireland-
Active  Campaigning   in   Scotland���Mr.
Balfour to be Returned Unopposed
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Nov. 29.���The general election is now on and all over the British
Isles   there   is  probably   more   active
parliament would tend to destroy the
prestige of the empire itself.
Manufacturing Centres Liberal
The manufacturing centres, including
interest  taken  in  the  possible  results guch   ,arge   centre8   0f   population   as
than in any election for many years not
excepting that of last year.
Feeling Against Nobles
In the Midlands and throughout
England generally, it may be said, there
is a strong feeling for curtailing the
privileges of the house of lords but
against the home-rule-all-round policy.
In fact the general opinion seems to be
that to make England one of four
powers   represented   in   the   Imperial
Manchester and the seats of the cotton
and carpet industries are all intensely
Liberal. The same may be said of the
potteries and the large iron and coal
centres of South Stafforshire and Warwickshire, with the exception of Birmingham, which is immensely loyal to
Joseph Chamberlain and his family.
But thc counties show the same loyalty,
with but a few exceptions, to the house
of lords and its traditional influences.
Active Campaign in Scotland
Scotland, so far, is the scene of the
most active campaigning, and although
one of the issues is home rule for Scotland, the Conservatives say they can
gain four or five seats there. It is understood, however, that the seats of all
the cabinet ministers from the land of
brown heath and shaggy wood are considered safe. Balfour is sure to be
returned unopposed, and it seems probable that Winston Churchill will huve
no opposition in Dundee.
Ireland Torn Over Home Rule
In Ireland there is the greatest kind
of an excitement on home rule question,
went away."
Asked if it were the custom of hia
countrymen not to retaliate when hit
on the nose Nikola said: "It was so
in this case. It would not be so in all
cases. It depends upon the nose that was
hit." And he drew himself up in the
witness box with unmistakable meaning.
Lots of Corroboration
With marvellous similarity all the
Italian witnesses called gave the same
version of the fracas.
L. Fredis said that he hud heard
what was described us "a mixture of bad
language and bud Italian." His two
countrymen did not run away. They
would scorn the very thought!
Magistrute Carss did not decide the
case last night. He slept on it, with the
result reported. L. Patmore appeared
for the prosecution and W. F. Eisher
for the accused.
PRESIDENT HAYS' PROPOSITION
Reply to Letter Containing It Being
Drafted by Committee
The city has not yet reported to C.
M. Hays' letter with that proposition
regarding the assessment. Why is tiha?
asked Aid. Hilditch last night. The
reason, explained Aid. I'atlullo is that
the finance committee is framing a
reply which being an important one
requires time. They hope to present a
draft letter for the council's approval
on Thursday.
Able to Report Progress
The city council in committee as a
whole discussed the by-law to amend
the Local Improvement By-law last
night, and rose reporting progress.
Board of Trade and C. M. Hay*
fjAs secretary of the Prince Rupert
Board of Trade, M. M. Stephens has
acknowledged receipt from the city
council of a copy of ('. M. Hays' letter
re the G. T. P. assessment, but nothing
further is re|>orted as having been done
in the matter by the Board of Trade.
and it is curious that after so many
years of agitation there should bc at
this juncture an opposition to homt
rule in any form. Yet there is a most
strenuous opposition.
Demonstration in Belfast
At Belfast lost night there was a great
demonstration by the Ulsterites. They
numbered some seventy thousand people
and the speeches were of the most
fervid character. It was boldly proposed
that all the members of the organization
should forthwith arm themselves to
oppose home rule.
Presbyterian Divine Defiant
One Presbyterian minister���and Belfast is ultra-Protestant,���declared that
if home rule carried all should refuse
to pay taxes to the Dublin parliament.
The majority of the speeches were very
bitter against Redmond and other Irish
leaders.
Austen Chamberlain will hold a meeting in Glasgow this evening and there is
likely to be an exciting discussion. V

Wives of the "Members"
There is no more ardent worshipper
at the shrine of politics than Lady
Luurior. Every debate worth listening
to finds her in her plsce in the front i
seat of the speaker's gallery, and she
misses not a word uttered by the sup-1
porters or the opponents of her distinguished husband's government. She
has a most attractive personality, and
wherever she goes, you will observe
young men and older men around her
enjoying immensely her vivacious conversation.
Lady Laurier still shows the same
keen interest" in her husband's work
that she displayed in earlier years. It
is rarely that she misses driving him
home from his offices on Parliament Hill,
and she looks annoyed and anxious
if he does not leave work aside for
the day punctually nt 6 o'clock. It
is related thut on one occasion the
Premier had been kept unusually late
over a matter of considerable consequence, and asked Lady Laurier not
to wait for him. Accordingly she drove
home alone, Eight o'clock came and
Sir Wilfrid had nort yet arived. Ordering out the automobile again, she drove
to the Premier's office, and sent in this
message: "Lady Laurier insists that
Sir Wilfrid Laurier comes home to
dinner." The Premier came and stayed
dutifully at his house for the rest of the
evening.
At the instance of Lady Laurier,
after the new western wing of the
Parliament 'buildings was completed,
the wives and daughters���or sisters,
when they had none���of the cabinet
ministers held weekly receptions in
the parliamentary restauront. These
functions, it is said, have done much
to solidify the government side of the
House. Men getting to know one
another socially learn to like their
fellows the better, and loyalty becomes
the stronger. Apart from party loyalty,
however, these meetings have had the
effect of bringing together members
on the opposite side of the House, and
while the tenacity of the parliamentarians
to their own political views and leaders
has not been diminished, some of the I
rancour of party struggle has been
lessened and the standard of debate
during these last few years has risen the
higher.
Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux freely acknowledges the debt he owes to his
wife, who is a daughter of Sir Louis
Jette. She has given considerable
time to the study of matters which
come  under  his  administration.
Another lady who has had a great
deal to do with the success of her husband in politics is Mrs. Templeman,
wife of the Minister of Inland Revenue.
The little story behind the appointment
of the Hon. William Templeman will
serve to illustrate this.
Early in 1906, there being a vacant
portfolio, the leading newspaper correspondents of the capital sent out the
statement that Mr. Templeman would
become Minister of Inland Revenue.
No appointment had been made, but
the effect of the publication of the dispatch was such that Sir Wilfrid Laurier
had no option but to give Mr. Templeman the portfolio. It was a newspaper
tribute to Mrs. Templeman, between
whom and the newspaper fraternity
there had always been a bond of sympathy. To the young reporter in his
dark days and with hopes almost
blasted, she had been a faithful friend
nnd adviser. She had never forgotten
her husband's early struggle in newspaper work.
Mrs. H. B. McGiverin did a great
amount of hard work for her husband
at the last election when he and Sir
Wilfrid Laurier were returned as members for Ottawa, and Mrs. William
Wright has considerably strengthened
her husband in his constituency of
Muskoka. Mrs. Gerald V. White of
North Renfew keeps a close eye on Mr.
White's political affairs, and a pretty
compliment was paid her at a political
dinner in Pembroke a few years ago,
when one of the speakers said that if
Mrs. White ran she would beat anybody around.
The Cure for "Nerves"
"A nervous breakdown is, as a rule,
the result of weeks, months, even years,
of strain," says Dr. Jean Williams in
Woman's Home Companion for November, "and at almost any time before
disaster has overtaken one a complete
change of habit, the shutting off of
waste, the increasing of energy-,making
products, perfect rest until balance has
been restored,.would save the day. But
here we must acknowledge the greatest
difficulty. The victims are so often
blind or indifferent to their own physical
deterioration until they have arrived
at that miserable state where only
their own sad condition and numerous
abnormal symptoms are of interest to
them. We witness then the appalling
self-engrossment characteristic of so
many neurasthenics. Such patients
often fight against relief, refuse to cooperate with a physician or others who
try to aid and encourage them, and feel
almost insulted if symptoms of good
health or improvement are noted. In
such cases effort must be directed towards the mental attitude, and at the
same time, and this is very important,
the physical basis of a healthy nervous
system must be obtained."
Education in Cookery
The night classes inaugurated by
the School Board of Vancouver now in
their second year, appear to be doing
exceedingly good work. They are enabling a considerable number of young
men and women to'utilize their evening
in a way in which the future in they will
not regret. The third cooking class
has been opened and all are well attended.
These afford a capital opportunity
for young women who are employed
during the day, but who do not wish to
lose touch with domestic matters. It
is said that as soon as one of them
becomes "engaged" she loses no time
in joining a cooking class, realizing
that her experience with a typrwriter
or behind the counter is hardly enough
to enable her to look forward to a
successful manage when she has a little
house or flat or her own.

SAVE US FROM OUR FRIENDS
Under the above caption, "The Khan" writing in the Toronto Star has an
article which leads us to believe that when he wTOte it, "The Khan" knew all
about those petitions which the friends of William Manson M. P. P. were circulating,
calling on the member to come out from his comfortable retreat, and run for Mayor
once more.
As an unbiased and dispassionate observer, the words of "The Khan" are worth j
hearkening to.   Here they are:
"1 don't believe thut Jeffries wanted to come back.   It was his friends I
did it.   When the big darkey walloped Miss Burns they rushed to Jeff and told j
him that he was the only hope left.   If the truth ever comes out it will be I
known that poor Jeff didn't want to���never wanted to.   They hurrahed him
into it;  they appealed to his vanity, to his patriotism, to his pocket, and
they dragged him away from his alfalfa and his sure fame and made a holy
show of him.   It was too bad.
"'A few years ago a band of politicians wanted Sir John A. Macdc-nald ;
to rome back in the sho|>e of his hopeful son.   Now, his hopeful son knew
better.   I have a slight acquaintance with him, and he isn't a fool;  but if the j
body of schemers that dragged him out of his happy home may be dubbed
Nobody, then he was Nobody's fool for several moons.   It is wrong, I know,,
to open up these painful memories, but I remember that it was a terrible sight.
The spectacle of the image of his father trying to do the old man's stunts will j
never fade from my memory.
"Now, when the municipal elections are on all over the land, watch
OUt for the old war-horses coming to the polls. They are a pathetic cavalcade. They are the victims of greed ���they will be harnessed by schemers.
There will be men presext themselves for election who would be wise to stay
at home. But they won't. It is not so much their fault as the fault of their
friends, so-called.

LET US INVITE THE COMMISSION
Now that the Royal Commission on Technical Education has arrived at
Vancouver, Prince Rupert should not lose the chance to send to the Commission
an invitation to visit the city, and confer with the Board of Trade and the educational authorities. It is an opportunity which should not be allowed to pass.
An invitation extended by the City Council, the Board of Trade, the School Board
or other representative body, would be sure to receive very* favorable consideration.
Apart altogether from the pleasure it would give the members of the Commission to exchange the cold rains of Vancouver for the balmy sunshine which we
are at present enjoying, the trip would be full of interest and educational value.
From the city's point of view, a visit from the Commission would present an
opportunity to express our views on the problems of technical education, and in
addition would prove a valuable advertisement for the city.

The action of the Vancouver authorities in giving a "dry" welcome to the
men of the cruiser "Rainbow" at the
request of a delegation of city clergymen
has aroused the ire of one retired naval
officer at least.
Writing to the Province, Lieutenant
G. H. S. Potter says:
"1 wish to enter an emphatic protest
against the insult offered the men of
j H. M. C. S. Rainbow by D . Spencer.
j There has never been a worse display
' of bad taste than that  of which the
i reverend   gent of local option has been
I guilty.    Here we have the first Can-
j adian   cruiser   coming   to   Vancouver
! manned by picked men from the royal
' navy,  men  tr ined  in  the  finest service the world has seen, men of character,  men  of  discipline,  men  of  re-
| straint, and on their arrival they are
enlightened to learn that public opin-
| ion in Vancouver, if Dr. Spencer is to
represent  it,  considers  that  they  are
unlit to take a drink of beer!    What
will  the    think  of   hospitality   which
infers that they are undisciplined drunkards whom a glass of beer would send
j crazy!   The men would earn the hearty
| approval of the majority of Vancouver-
i ites if they refused to participate in
! the affair now planned.    The absolute
| bad taste of the controversy is evident
, to all who are not paid to agitate.
"Because there is no grog tub on the
Rainbow does not mean that the men
are abstainers. It means that the daily
issue of grog customary on his majesty's ships is done away with. In
the service a large percentage of the
men do not avail themselves of the
grog issue, which, for the rcverened
agitator's enlightenment, is rum. But
at the same time these same "abstainers" as Dr. Spencer terms them
are quite ready to enjoy a drink of
beer.
"The Rainbow men are picked men
of the royal navy, who are here to
show Canada how to make sailors
and on their first visit to Vancouver
they find themselves discussed by local
option cranks and prohibition nuisances
as if they were some strange animal
not fit to be trusted without a chain.
I have seen seventeen years in the royal
navy and I fancy that during my period
of service I learned the sentiments of
the lower deck. The British bluejacket
is the finest tpye of man one could
wish to meet and can be trusted in
far more serious matters than a glass
of beer. He has self-reaps?ct. The
men of the Rainbow are not abstainers,
but like all bluejackets of the royal
navy they are temperate and it may
interest the reverend gentleman to
know that whatever the civic authorities
may see fit to do, he can rest assured
that if the Rainbow men want beer
they are going to get it with other
hospitality from the service men of this
city."

JUST TWO WEEKS MORE
(The followlnsr Is published by the Press Committee of the opponents of the Scott Act. ansl ia
isot thc expression of the views of this paper.)
In two weeks from today the vote
will be taken to decide whether Prince
Rupert is to continue to rank with
Chilliwack or to take its place with
Vancouver and Victoria as one of the
greut cities of the province. Remember
fi that the Scott Act if passed now will

to the end of the chapter. But if, as
we all hope, this city is to rival Vancouver in the near future, we must have
no handicaps. People will not come to
a town which has the reputation of
being run by a lot of faddists. The
drinking of liquor is not eonsidered a
crime by the world at large, and to
make it a crime in Prince Rupert and
not in Vancouver is no reflection on
Vancouver but merely shows that some
of the early settlers in this city were a
pretty narrow-minded bunch of citizens.
The only thing that will give the Scott
Act any chance of passing in this city
is indifference on the part of the business
men, and it is this that should bo guarded
against. The Scott Act advocates will
poll every vote. They always do. It
is one of the results of fanaticism in
anything that the fanatic never spares
himself. It is the broader minded
citizen who is apt to be indifferent.
The issue seems to be so clear to him
that he cannot understand anyone I
taking the opposite view, and he is apt
since the dawn of the open bar. Should
the Scott Act lessen this waste by only
one hulf, all legitimate businesses would
at once feel the result. Money would
become more evenly distributed, instead of finding its way into the pockets
of a few as it does at present. Give us
an average prosperity rather, than wealth
for a few.
Our opponents inform us that the bar
brings a great deal of money into town
that would otherwise go to our neighbors.
Suppose we admit that; but what
becomes of that money when it does
get here?   Is it not laid by in order that

it will discourage prospective citizens
and investors. Do you know, that side
by side with the advertising of this
townsite for sale by the G. T. P., went
out the far-flung news that it was to
be preserved as a typical temperance
town? Did this scare away capital?
Surely, no sane man will say that it
did. Has not all our progress up to date
taken place under a restricted liquor
sale? What man���except an interested
,���,,. will dare say that business has
been better since licenses were issued?
What money-loving nation in all the
world can, in that respect, be compared
with the United States? And yet in
spite of that what nation has msde
such rapid strides in its fight against
the bar? All of which goes to prove
that it is all rot to say that the prosperity of any town is inseparably tied
up with half a dozen saloons.
Further do you know that the biggest
enemy capital has  today is the bar7
What have the captains of industry to
say about it? Is it not the universal
cry that it is tearing at their very
vitals? Why is it that soulless corporations are right now handsomely
endowing such institutions as the Y. M.
C. A.? Because they want to sing
hymns and say their prayers? Not by
a long shot! It is because the success
of their business de|-ends on sober
men. Time was when the only opponent the bar hud, was the weak arm
of sentiment, whereas today the lion
in its path is one of its own breed. Thut
lion is Mammon himself: Greed being
turned againsr greed! The economic
forces have been aroused. Do you
know, that the driving force in all
history has been the economic? Self-
preservation and independence are the
most primitive instincts of the race, and
the most powerful, too. A man will
fight for his belly, and second for his
pocket, and for both of these he will die
fighting. Developed tastes remain away
in the rear, but whatever prevents the
satisfaction of these primitive inctincts
must die. The bar hits these and
because it does, the bar must go.
They tell us that it will hurt business.
If by that they mean the liquor business,
wc will nt once agree. We are not so
sanguine as to think that it will at once
be wi'-cd out, but we do believe that
it will be decidedly restricted. If you
think that it will hurt the small trader,
just drop into the fruit store, or the
tobacco and confectionery stalls around
the corner und ask them. They will tell
you that all the small cash now goes
to the bar. If you think that our
merchantile houses are in danger, have
u talk with the dry goods man and the
grocer, and they will explain why it is
that they are forced to give extended
credit. If you fear that it will reduce
land values, ask thc real estate man why
he is not selling the same proportion
of cheap lots that he did a year ago, and
he will inform you that there is not
money enough to buy both lots and
Booze. It is a conservative estimate
that a thousand dollars a day pusses
over the bars of this city. It is also
well within the limit to soy that the
amount of liquor drunk  has doubled
cssmmencement.

SUICIDED ON
TOLSTOI'S GRAVE
HIS   FAITHFUL   RETAINER
INCONSOLABLE
WAS
Wat Master of the Late Count's
Horse and Accompanied Him When
the Writer Was Fleeing from
World into Unknown Solitudes.
(Special to the Optimist)
St. Petersburg, Nov. 29. -The recent
death and burial of thc great Russian
philospoher Tolstoi were vividly recalled
this morning  by  a moat  pathetic incident.    The master coachman of the
count,   who   lied   with   him   from   his
I home with the plan of journeying into
| unknown solitudes, because inconsolable
over his dear master's death,    lie was
prominent as a mourner when Tolstoi's
j remains were laid under thc shade of
I "Poverty   Oak,"   thc  spot  where   the
1 novelist in his childhood had buried a
green   rocking   horse   and   which   Ill-
specified explicitly  his remains should
be   buried   "with   ceremonies   of   thc
simplest and without the rites of the
orthodox church."
This wus done and thc latter point
weighed heavily upon his old servitor.
Early this morning his dead body was
found stretched upon Tolstoi's grave.
He had opened a vein in his arm and had
with fortitude to be wondered at lain
there until he had bled to death.

Didn't Know Them
The late Rev. Horatio Stebbins, of
San Francisco, was a man of large
mind and noble powers, but more
familiar with the world of intellectual
and scholastic interests than with trivial
and timely things. His household was
blessed with a charming daughter who
grew up tall and beautiful, commanding
the admiration of all who saw her. One
day a visitor aaid to the good doctor:
"Doctor, your daughter grows more
chorming day by day. Why she's a
regular Gibson girl." "Ah, thank you,
thank you," replied the doctor in his
best manner. When the visitor had
gone, turning to his wife thc doctor
asked: "My denr, who ore thc Gibsons?"

Again this morning the arbitrators
got busy with the long drawn out Hays
Port dispute. Alex Noble was examined
today and gave some scientific information regurding the ice formation
on the Skeena explaining why anchor
ice was not formed there. According
to Mr. Noble's evidence 70 per cent of
the fish euught on the Skeena are caught
at Point Marwitch, and while only ten
fish per man is thc average per day at
Balmoral cannery, the average at Hays
Port is seventy per man. Till you come
to Hays Port there are few places for
lorge vessels to tie up on the coast here
except "Prince Rupert. Mr. Noble
said the railway company had taken
possession of the ground without permission, and considered that after the
line was ballasted thc ground at the
back of thc grade would get soggy owing
to the stoppage of thc natural drainage.

though they evidently had put on their
glad nil's to appear before the council.
But all the same he kind of shivered at
Aid. Barrow's picture of peril from the
plague propagating flea. He intended
to have a look round those shacks
to see if they could not be kept sanitary
enough for safety till spring.
Willing to Defer Date
Aid. Naden said he would be ready
to alter the ten day clause in his motion
to a sixty days one; and Aid. Pattullo
went even further being ready to postpone the clearances until the weather
became suitable. To make the term
sixty days satisfied Aid. Barrow, provided the period was taken by the
shack dwellers as un opportunity to
look for other quarters.
May Need the Reserve Soon
A vague promise of possible G. T. P.
activity in spring on the reserve, was
given by Aid. Smith, when he suggested
that the postponing of the clearance
till Spring would do no harm aa the shack
dwellers would probably have to shift
then anyway.
Finally Aid. Mobley moved that
action in this matter bc deferred for a
week, and this amendment to the original
motion was seconded by Aid. Smith
and carried. Aid. Hilditch's idea that
the council should see the shacks will
be carried out especially if the snow
gives within the week.
Heard Mr. Douglas, Too
H. Douglas, who asked permission to
speak, gave it as his view that the
condition of the reserve was as good
as that of any other portion of the
city. Many of the shack dwellers, he
said, own lots in parts of the city unimproved by plankways. He said that
the remedy for the shack dwelling
system was to provide plankways for
such owners to enable them to build
and so improve their conditions, and
the city also. His remarks were applauded by the deputation which then
retired.
