DENIES RUMOR
Mr. C. V. Bennett, President
of the Local Option Association,
denies the report that he intends
to contest the Mayoralty as a
temperance candidate. '' You
had no business to use my name.
I wanted the local option question
settled before the other question
came up," he told the Optimist
today.
"Can we deny then on your
authority that you have any intention of entering the field?"
Mr. Bennett was asked.
"Yes, you may," was Mr.
Bennett's reply.
BIG COLONIZATION SCHEME
FOR PEACE RIVER VALLEY
Mr. J. F. Bledsoe of the Grand Trunk Lands Company

Around   Fort  George
Vancouver, Nov. 19.���With the object of completing the details of organization of a company capitalized
at $2,500,000 to take over the charter
and holdings of the Grand Trunk Lands
Co., Mr. J. F. Bledsoe, secretary of the
Grand Trunk Lands Co., left yesterday for Winnipeg, where he wi'l meet

DR. CRIPPEN PAYS PENALTY OF HIS CRIME
Was Hanged at London at Nine O'CIock This  Morning���Times
Prints  An Alleged  Confession���Miss Le Neve Sails
for America As Soon As Hanging Is Over
���Death of Crippen's Father
London, Nov. 23.���Dr. Hawley Crippen, the murderer of his wife Belle
Elmore, suffered the penalty of his
crime this morning. From an early
hour the approaches to the Bow Street
prison were impassable because of the
great waiting crowd. It was a very
quiet and orderly crowd. The scaffold
was erected in the prison yard so nothing
of the proceedings could be viewed
from the outside.
Discussed Gruesome Details
While waiting the hoisting of the
black flag, the crowd discussed the
details of the terrible crime. No crime
within recent years seems to have
aroused the interest of the populace as
has the murder of Belle Elmore.
Tha Fatal Hour Arrives
As the fingers on the big clock face
approached the solemn hour of nine
they were watched in breathless suspense.
A few minutes later the big bell tolled,
and with a mighty sigh the crowd faded
away. The American doctor had expiated his crime.
(Special to the Optimist)
Father Cary was with the prisoner
all night long and accompanied him to
the scaffold. Ellis, the official hangman,
arrived from Liverpool last night and
conducted the execution.
Times Prints Confession
Extras were out on the streets but a
few minutes later, containing pictures
of the hanging and columns of gruesome
particulars of the last scene. Among
them was the Times, which claimed to
have a complete confession made by
Crippen. The Times purports to have
received this from Miss Le Neve, to
whom it is alleged to have been made.
The officials of the jail still deny that
Crippen made any confession.
Le Neve Leaves for America
Miss Le Neve has booked a passage
on the Majestic and sails for New York
today.
Inquest on the Remain*
An inquest was held immediately
after the execution of Crippen at which
the governor of the jail testified there
had been no hitch and that everything
had been done according to law. The
foreman of the jury asked if a confession had been made. The governor
replied that this was a matter in which
he had no concern.
The Times in its evening edition told
its readers not to heed the denials of
the confession made by the officials, as
they had the written statement from
the prisoner before he was removed to
the prison in which he waa executed.
Crippen's Father Dead
Los Angeles, Nov. 20.���Myron Crippen, the aged father of Dr. H. H. Crippen,
convicted in London of the murder of
his wife, died early this morning in the
room he has occupied for years in South
Flower street. According to the physician who attended him, death resulted
from old age, coupled with the strain
he has been under since the arrest of his
son.
ested in the flotation ol the new syndicate
which has not yet been named.
Mr. Bledsoe is to be secretary of the
new concern, which is being formed to
carry out a unique colonization project
on a large scale in connection with thousands of acres of agricultural lands in the
vicinity of Fort George and the Peace
river valley. Following the organization of the new syndicate, arrangements
will also be made for the placing on the
market of two new townsites on the line
of the Grand Trunk Pacific which were
controlled and owned by the Grand
Trunk Lands Co., but passed into the
possession of the new company along
with a vast tract of other lands in that
district in connection with a big deal
recently completed.
In connection with the colonization
scheme it is expected that as soon aa tbe
new syndicate.is foimed, arrangements
will at once be made to send a large
force of men north to make improvements on selected tracts of land owned
by the company and place these tracts
in the condition of semi-ready farms, so
that the settlers that will be brought
out can go right ahead putting in their
crops without the loss of time usually
occasioned by getting the land ready and
fencing.

played havoc with all the wires running

disasters have been reported so far.
The Anglican Club
The Anglican Club is to hold its first
meeting in St. Andrew's Church Hall
on Thursday evening at 8 o'clock. Men
and women are invited to all the meetings
of the club.
A feature of the program will be an
address by Captain Hamor on "British

Reminiscences."
FIGHTING ALL NIGHT
Seventy   Killed   at  Torreen   in   the
Mexican  Revolution
(Special to the Optimist)
El Paso, Nov. 23.���There was all-
night fighting at Santo Isabel, Chaihulpa
and Torreen. Wild scenes of disorder
marked the night at the latter place
and the death list is over twenty.
The revolutionists were driven from
the towns in most instances and they
are said to feel keenly their lack of
organization and of rifles and ammunition. The telegraph and telephone
wires have been cut and details were
difficult to obtain when at daybreak an
attempt was made to ascertain the real
state of affairs.
Made a Record Trip
The Prince Rupert arrived here at
nine forty-five this morning; which is
the earliest either of the Grand Trunk
Pacific boats has ever made this port.
She had about forty first-class passengers.
PREMIER SIFTONS POLICY
Caucas of Alberta Liberals Endorses
Great Waterways Scheme
(Special to the Optimist)
Edmonton, Nov. 23.���At a Liberal
caucas held last night Premier Sifton's
railway policy was approved by a vote
of twenty to three. The first reading of
the bill to guarantee the bonds of the
Alberta and Great Waterways railway
was therefore passed.
Impromptu Recall of Mayor
A number of the citizens of Bellingham have made a proposition to the
Mayor that if he will drop out forthwith and make way for another man
they will pay him his salary in full
for the unexpired portion of his term.
His Honor does not regard the impromptu recall with much favor fearing the Inter State Commerce Commission might consider it a violation
of the law respecting illegal rebates.

1 the amount representing the value
'of gold taken from the earth at Nome
and newly discovered Iditarod di��-
< trict since the close of navigation in
Behring Sea.
In view of the fart that this is the
first attempt to ship gold in any great
\ quantities  this  way, every effort  will
be matle to keep the date of the shipment a secret.   Also, it is quite probable
1 that   the   northern   mushers   will   be
1 accompanied by an armed guard while
lrans|>orting the yellow metal.
The gold, the bulk of which will be
handled through the Miners and Merchants Bank of Iditarod to the Scandinavian-American Bank of Seattle,
will be sent by registered mail. It will
be conyeved from Nome by dog teams
by way of the Yukon and Tanana to
Fairbanks, thence to Chitna and Cordova
over the Copper River A Northwestern
railroad, where it will be transferred
to a steamship for Seattle. The valuable
mail matter will be carried a distance of
about 1700 miles over trails alone.

The OPTIMIST
Now   that  the  so-called  temperance
people have at last succeeded in sub-
! mitting the question of license or pro-
! hibition to the people of Prince Rupert
it might be well to look a little more
closely into this whole matter of pro-
i hibition.    There is no doubt that the
I men who drink to excess in Prince
Rupert constitute a very small minority
\ of those who use liquors, and it seems
rather unfair to penalize ninty-nine
in a hundred because one man is a beast.
1 Not only that but the drunkard can still
secure liquor under the peculiar form of
prohibition enjoined in the Scott Act
and can tear his home to pieces so long
as he confines his drinking to his home.
; The whole thing seems to be a farce.
It is as much as saying that we do not
: care how drunken the town may be-
I come so long as the diunkards stay at
home and do not let us see them.

in which each man must be his own
judge. Many estimable people believe
that meat-eating is an invention of the
devil, but they have not yet carried
fanaticism so far as to endeavor to
prohibit others from using it. The case
is the same in regard to liquor. Under
present conditions a man can be a
total abstainer or not as he sees fit. No
attempt has ever been made to interfere
with a man's liberty of not drinking.

denies the report that he intends

I wanted the local option question

"Can we deny then on your

Mr. Bennett was asked.

DR. CRIPPEN PAYS PENALTY OF HIS CRIME
Was Hanged at London at Nine 0'Clock  This  Morning-���Times
Prints  An Alleged  Confession���Miss Le Neve Sails
for America As Soon As Hanging Is Over
���Death of Crippen's Father
London, Nov. 23.���Dr. Hawley Crippen, the murderer of his wife Belle
Elmore, suffered the penalty of hia
crime thia morning. From an early
hour the approaches to the Bow Street
prison were impassable because of the
great waiting crowd. It was a very
quiet and orderly crowd. The scaffold
was erected in the prison yard so nothing
of the proceedings could be viewed
from the outside.
Discussed Gruesome Details
While waiting the hoisting of the
black flag, the crowd discussed the
details of the terrible crime. No crime
within recent years seems to have
aroused the interest of the populace as
has the murder of Belle Elmore.
Th* Fatal Hour Arrives
Ai the Angers on the big clock face
approached the solemn hour of nine
they were watched in breathless suspense.
A few minutes later the big bell tolled,
and with a mighty sigh the crowd faded
away. The American doctor had expiated his crime.
(Special to the Optimist)
Father Cary was with the prisoner
all night long and accompanied him to
the scaffold. Ellis, the official hangman,
arrived from Liverpool last night and
conducted the execution.
Times Prints Confession
Extras were out on the streets but a
few minutes later, containing pictures
of the hanging and columns of gruesome
particulars of the last scene. Among
them was the Times, which claimed to
have a complete confession made by
Crippen. The Times purports to have
received this from Miss Le Neve, to
whom it is alleged to have been made.
The officials of the jail still deny that
Crippen made any confession.
La Neve Leaves for America
Miss Le Neve has booked a passage
on the Majestic and sails for New York
today.
Inquest on tha Remains
An inquest was held immediately
after the execution of Crippen at which
the governor of the jail testified there
had been no hitch and that everything
had been done according to law. The
foreman of the jury asked if a confession had been made. The governor
replied that this was a matter in which
he had no concern.
The Times in its evening edition told
its readers not to heed the denials of
the confeaaion made by the officials, as
they had the written statement from
the prisoner before he waa removed to
the prison in which he was executed.
Crippen's Father Dead
Los Angeles, Nov. 20.���Myron Crippen, the aged father of Dr. H. H. Crippen,
convicted in London of the murder of
his wife, died early this morning in the
room he has occupied for years in South
Flower street. According to the physician who attended him, death resulted
from old age, coupled with the strain
he has been under since the arrest of his
son.

El Paso, Nov. 23.���There was all-
night fighting at Santo Isabel, Chaihulpa
and Torreen. Wild scenes of disorder
marked the night at the latter place
and the death list is over twenty.
The revolutionists were driven from
the towns in most instances and they
are Baid to feel keenly their lack of
organization and of rifles and ammunition. The telegraph and telephone
wires have been cut and details were
difficult to obtain when at daybreak an
attempt was made to ascertain the real
state of affairs.

The Prince Rupert arrived here at
nine forty-five this morning; which is
the earliest either of the Grand Trunk

Alberta and Great Waterways railway

Impromptu Recall of Mayor
A number of the citizens of Bellingham have made a proposition to the
Mayor that if he will drop out forthwith and make way for another man
they will pay him his salary in full

His Honor does not regard the impromptu recall with much favor fearing the Inter State Commerce Commission might consider it a violation

of the Grand Trunk Pacific which were
controlled and owned by the Grand
Trunk Lands Co., but passed into the
possession of the new company along
with a vast tract of other lands in that
district in connection with a big deal
recently completed.
In connection with the colonization
scheme it is expected that as soon as the
new syndicate.is formed, arrangements
will at once be made to send a large
force of men north to make improvements on selected tracts of land owned
by the company and place these tracts
in the condition of semi-ready farms, so
that the settlers that will be brought
out can go right ahead putting in their
crops without the loss of time usually
occasioned by getting the land ready and
fencing.
WILL SHIP GOLD
OVER THE SNOW
DOG TEAMS WILL BRING $225,000
OUT OF ALASKA
Great Secrecy la Being Observed
About the Shipment���Represents
Clean-Up Since Navigation Closed
on Behring Sea.
Seattle, Nov. 20.���Gold bullion to
the value of not less than $225,000
will be transported across the snow-
covered wildernesses and icy trails
of Alaska by dog teams this winter,
the amount representing the value
of gold taken from the earth at Nome
and newly discovered Iditarod diatrict since the close of navigation in
Behring Sea.
In view of the fact that this is the
first attempt to ship gold in any great
quantities this way, every effort will
be made to keep the date of thu shipment a secret. Also, it is quite probable
that the northern mushers will be
accompanied by an armed guard while
transporting the yellow metal.
The gold, the bulk of .which will be
handled through the Miners and Merchants Bank of Iditarod to the Scandinavian-American Bank of Seattle,
will be sent by registered mail. It will
be conyeved from Nome by dog teams
by way of the Yukon and Tanana to
Fairbanks, thence to Chitna and Cordova
over the Copper River & Northwestern
railroad, where it will be transferred
to a steamship for Seattle. The valuable
mail matter will be carried a distance of
about 1700 miles over trails alone.

Tomorrow, Thursday, between the
hours of 3:30 and 5:30 p.m., Mrs.
Angus Stewart holds her Variety Shower
in aid of the Hospital. The occasion
will be made also an opportunity for
the ladies of Prince Rupert to become
acquainted with the newly appointed
matron of the Hospital, Miss Kate
McTavish.
Contributions of all sorts likely to be
of use to the Hospital are welcomed
for the Variety Shower. At first intended to be only a linenshower the scope
of the plan has been widened to include
anything and everything of service the
ladies of the Hospital Auxiliary and
others care to bring. The shower will
take place at Mrs. Angus Stewart's
residence.
A birthday reception and musical
entertainment is to be given this evening
at eight o'clock by the ladies of the
Presbyterian church in the church
building. Little silk bags have been
provided und these are to be returned
containing as many cents as the person
who receives it is years old. A splendid
program has been provided and refreshments will be served during the
evening. Everybody is invited to attend
this gathering.
Children and Colds
Now that the cold wet weather is
come, most mothers are afraid that
the children will catch cold. Those who
go to school in the early morning are
carefully warned and watched. Such
mothers are surprised when they find
thut very often it is those who are
most carefully sheltered who suffer
most during the winter from colds.
Thc baby who does not go outside the
door, the mother who spends most ot
her time in the warm kitchen, thc
childem who live nearest the school,
often have during the winter, u succession of colds, while the members
of the family who must brave the
storms, escape.
Scientists have been busy examining
into the causes of colds. They have
discovered that, like typhoid fever or
tuberculosis, the cold is the work of
millions of microbes. The variety that
causes u cold, like many others of these
mischievous organism, is almost always present in the nasal passages. But
it is only when the syBtem is for any
reason run down that these microbes
begin to multiply in a dangerous way.
In close rooms, crowded with many
people, the susceptible subject catches
cold from the person who is suffering
from one.
The scientists tell us that it is not
fresh, or even cold air that causes this
disease. Thc dunger is in close rooms.
Yet it is net safe to get a chill. This
does not cause a cold. But it leaves
the system open to the attack of the
bacteria by causing congestion. This
is the reason that athletes and dancers
very often get colds. After violent exercise they s't or stand in the cold and
get chilled.
Put on the children's rubbers, dress
them warmly and let them go out without misgivmgs. Contrive 'n some
way to keep the house well a'red. Let
the people !n the house wear warmer
clothes if necessary, but do not let Buy
one get chilled. The boy who plays
hockey or football all the afternoon
and then s'ts around <n h's sh'rt-sleeves
in the evening, is inviting the cold bac
teria to sc'ie on his weakened system.
The woman who, warmly clad, leaves
the windows up while she is dusting,
runs no such risk.
The coughing und  sneezing have a
bad effect on the heart and on the
other hand, a weak heart leaves the body
in a condition to catch cold. It will
be seen then how important it ia to
avoid catching cold. Good food, fresh
air, plenty of warm clothing and sufficient
exercise will enable us to pass through
the rainy weather without catching
odd.
Revolution Will Affect Women
Thc revo'ulion in Portugal w:ll greatly
wafTect the omen, though this point
seems to be generally overlooked in
the prophecies regarding the country's
future which are being made on all
I sides.
There is indeed room for improvement, for the Portuguese women share
with their Span!sh sisters the d'stinction
of being the most backward, ignorant
and downtrodden in Europe.
They  are  not educated as we un-
, derstand  the word and take not the
smallest  interest  in  the  political  life
I of their country or in the world out-
Iside   their   narrow   ken,   while   their
j menfolk  look  upon  them   as   inferior
creatures  intellectually.    This  idea  is
installed  into  their minds from  their
earliest childhood and  they accept  it
complacently.
The rich women discard the native
dress and wear gowns from Paris and
London, and the social life in Lisbon,
Oporto and other large towns is gay
and frivolous. They take no exercise,
but lounge away their time in idleness and amusements mixed with religion,
and they aoon lose their youthful
appearance and good looks.
The idea of a woman undertaking
professional work is received w'th much
disfavor by the Portuguese, both men
and women. They consider that a lady
loses her social position nt once if ahe
does work for which she receives payment,and indigent widows and spinsters
think it far more dignified to pass their
lives existing on the charity of friends
nnd relatives than to carve out a career
for themselves.
The women of the |>eusant class are
active, vigorous and sensible creatures
and they redeem their sex from the general charge of sloth and helplessness.
They work quite as hard and in many
places harder than the men, and by
their labor they contribute greatly to
the national revenues. The weight
that they carry on their heads is almost
incredible. They will go off gayly
bearing ,, bosket of fruit and vegetables
which it takes two people to lift, and in
the wine district the baskets of grapes
are heavier still.
They rarely wear shoes or stockings
and their heavy skirts are pulled up
under a girdle which enables them to
walk with greater ease. Their headgeai
mostly consists of a bright colored handkerchief under a quaint, flat, soil black
hat, which is unbecoming but comfortable when carrying heavy loada on
the head.
Premier Braga the Socialistic professor
of Sociology from Lisbon University���a
sketch of whose life and character
appeared in yesterday's "Optimist" is
a friend of the movement to emancipate
his countrywomen from the thraldom of
ignorance and superstition. His regime
will have a potent effect on the life ot the
women of Portugal.

Evidence was resumed yesterday
by the arbitrators in the Hays Port
case the witness examined by L. Patmore being R. S. Donaldson, a fisherman
on the Skeena river since 1889.
He aaid Hays Port was a good cannery
site, easy of access, and ;i centrally
located cannery could effect a saving ot
$500 to $600 in scow traffic per season.
A special advantage about Point Mar-
vitch was that fishing could be done there
at both tides without intermission.
This could not be done at any other
point.
Cross exumined by Mr. Fisher witness
said that the fishing ground below Point
Marvitch would be as good us that in
front of Hays Port. He had not seen
any plan of Hays Port townsite, but said
that u cannery built outside the railway
grade at Hays Port would not be as
convenient as one built inside the grade.
SQUIRREL RIVER COOD
New Placers Possibly as Rich a* Any
in   Alaska
Seattle, Nov. 20.���The little power
schooner Bender Bros., which arrived
from Nome today after a swift passage in spite of the storms that blew the
ship to tha Siberian ahore and threatened to destroy her, brought $800,000
in gold dust from the Squirrel river
diggings in the Kolzebue Sound country.
Among the passengers was Mrs. D.
Barrett of San Francisco, whose husband is owner of claims that sent $60,000
of the gold. The Bender Bros, also
brought valuable furs and whalebone.
On October 5 there were 1000 men
on Squirrel river, und many have
since gone from Nome. The distance
by trail if 600 miles. The gold found
is very coarse, nuggets of from $10
to $20 being commons Gold runs
only $14 to the ounce on account of
an admixture of copper. Great deposits
of copper have been found also. Some
reports say that the camp will be as
rich as any yet discovered.

PRESIVFNT HAYS' THREAT
As ��� specimen of the kind of ... rl Murder that highly paid brains can perpetrate, that telegram of President Hays to the City Council deserves to be embalmed and placed in the archives of thc Province. It was as ill advised as uncalled
for, and more than anything else is calculated to open the eyes of the citizens to
the temper in which the railway company is approaching the city with their request
that the City Council make the citizens pay the company's taxes.
There are always two ways of doing a thing, and in this case President Hays
seems to have deliberately chosen the discourteous instead of the courteous way.
Fortunately, the Council showed the good sense not to reply in kind.
The incident goes a long way to support the view held by many people that
the financial trouble which made the call for debentures necessary, was hailed with
satisfaction, if not engineered, by the author of the threatening telegram.
Less than a month ago a "friend of both parties," came all smiles and courtesy
to straighten out that "quarrel between partners" by suggesting that the city
"deal generously" with the railway company. What, we wonder, will be his feelings
as he peruses the telegram?
But President Hays makes a great mistake if he thinks his telegraphed threats
will have more weight than his friend's smiles. Of the two they are much less
dangerous.
Thanks to the ability of the Council, backed by the spunk of nearly the whole
city, Prince Rupert has weathered the financial storm that threatened it. It may be
gall and wormwood for President Hays to read the city's ad. for debentures in the
London press, but that does not constitute good ground for his threats to publish
the company's side of the assessment dispute, or help in the slightest degree to the
settlement of the affair.
NEXT?
Our erratic and hysterical contemporary invites us to answer three questions.
(1) Whether our use of the term "crass ignorance" in describing our contemporary's mental condition does not show that Alderman Pattullo inspires our
opinions.
(2) Whether it is true that our printing office is to be placed under one of
Alderman Pattullo's roofs; and
(3) Why the City Council has placed an order for printing with the Optimist's
job department without inviting our contemporary to tender.
The answers to the questions are aa follows:
(1) No.   It merely goes to ahow that we are not alone in our opinion.
(2) No.   The statement is entirely false.
(3) If facts as stated are true, probably because they had tried both, and
require a good job.

ANDREW CARNEGIE GIVES SOME
FREE ADVICE
He Would Rather Be a Poor Boy then
a Millionaire's Son���Gives Away
$3,500,000 on Hit 75th Birthday.
Andrew Carnegie whose 75th birthday
occurs this week, has, in addition to a
birthday gift of $3,500,000 to the Carnegie Technology Schools of Pittsburg,
been presenting the world with some
free advice on the benefits of poverty���
for other people.
At a dinner given in his honor by the
General Society of Mechanics and
Tradesmen on the occasion of the society's fifteenth anniversary, Mr. Carnegie spoke at length of his philanthropies and then touched on his early
life, winding up with the observation
that his heart went out in sympathy
for the sons of millionaires. It was
the son of poor parents, he said, who
realizes what a father's and mother's
love is, und he who had to toil hard
for all he got was the boy to be envied.
He said, "1 am proud to be eligible
to membership in a society of mechanics.
I have worked in cellars and fired
engines, and so I am able to lift my
hands and say truthfully, 'behold the
horny hands of toil.'
"And speaking of work brings up
how I pity the son of a millionaire.
He does not know what father and
mother means. It is the poor boy who
has his father and his mother as guides
and inspirations, the son of a scrub
woman, perhaps, who realizes and
appreciates all his father has done for
him���that is the boy who will push
forward. If I had my choice, I would
be the poor boy, and know what a
father and mother mean, and not the
millionaire's son, who does not know."

"Serve the champagne in tin cups,
Oscar," directed the owner of the
bungalow. "Very good, sir." "These
hunting parties like to rough it a trifle."
"My husband is awfully goodnatured.
I gave him a beautiful box of cigars for
his birthday, and he only smoked one
himself, and gave all the rest to his
friends."
A train on one of the country lines
that runs through and is usually late was
reported on time the other day. The
young man who writes tV bulletins concerning the trains at that stution put
down the information about this train as
follows:
"No. 61t>, from , on time."
Then he wrote underneath:
"Cause unknown."
"Only once huve I s|>oken cross to my
wife," said it man to an intimate friend.
"Indeed!" remarked the hitter in some
surprise.
"Yes," said the first speaker, rather
ambiguously; "once was quite enough
for me."

"Ah," said the gray-haired wayfarer
' at the railway refreshment room, "this
is thc old place.    I  recognize yonder
landmark at once."   "What landmark?"
inqiured the barmaid, considerately.
"Years ago when I travelled over this
line," said the stranger in a choking
voice, "I carved my initials and thc date
on yonder bun. I see you have it still.
Excuse an old man's tears."
He was a throaty tenor with a mighty
opinion of his abilities as a warbler, so
when asked to sing at a smoker in a
certain Yorkshire town, he was pleased���
nay, delighted���to oblige. Instead of
receiving the plaudits of the company,
however, a solemn silence fell upon all
when the last chord was reached.
Naturally the young man was disappointed and looked it as he resumed
his seat, and Yorkshire candor did not
reassure him.
"Never mind lad," said thc man from
Sheffield, patting him on the back,
"tha's done thi best; but t' fellow as
asked thee to sing owt to be shot!"
DON'T  WANT  PLANKWAYS
On  Second  Avenue   Between  Sixth

While a certain section of the citizens
interested in Second avenue between
Sixth and Eighth streets, want to have
plankways put in to be used for both
teams and pedestrians until the grading
is finished, another party petitioned
last night against this. Thc st reels
committee have the matter in hand, and
it will bc settled as early as possible as
the grading is going ahead, and the street
will soon be more difficult for traffic.

BIG SWEEP OF SPACE
Grand Trunk Pacific Warehouse Removed to Wharf Extension
With the exception of the lean-to, the
big warehouse of the railway company
has been entirely removed to the new
extension of the wharf, and the increased
wharfage at once becomes! striking. There
is nothing now in front of the new Kelly-
Douglas store, which is now practically
completed and ready for the reception
of stock.
McBride on the Stump
Yale, B. C, Nov. 23.���The first
meeting of the campaign for the election
of a ���successor to the premier, who was
returned at the general election for
Yale as well as Vancouver, was held
last night and the premier delivered a
rousing speech in favor of the Conservative candidate.
No Date For Election Yet
Many enquiries are being made as to
the date of the Local Option election,
as it is hoped to have the smoke of this
battle cleared away before the campaign
for municipal officers. J. L. McLaren,
who,, has been appointed returning
officer Isy the federal government, states
that he has no definite information aa to
the date as yet.
near the entrance to the Yellowhead
Pass. We hope to have the track to
Prairie Creek before Christmas, and to
the Athabasca River sometime in January. The work from there to Tete
Jaune Cache is thoroughly covered,
and the construction will be carried on
vigorously during the entire winter.
Why Progress Is Slow
"The work west of Edmonton has
been very slow, owing to the difficulty
of transporting supplies, which all
have to be drawn in from the end of
track over very rough country, and can
only be done to advantage in the winter
season on snow. As there is only about
two months' of sleighing, it is a very
difficult matter for contractors to keep
sufficient supplies to the front. Last
winter there were 1800 teams on the
road drawing supplies, still they were
not sufficiently pushed ahead so but
what the contractor has been obliged
to transport on wagons the present
summer. When we got to Tete Jaune
Cache, this matter will be considerably
simplified, as we then get something
over 200 miles of water navigation
alongside the right of way, and will
be able to make much faster progress
with the construction.
"The line east from Winnipeg to Fort
William is nearing completion, the
track being in such condition that we
have been hauling grain over it to the
head of Lake Superior since about
October 1st, and it is now expected the
line will be ready for passenger serivce
early next spring.
Line Opened Nineteen-Thirteen
"The construction work in the Transcontinental during the past season has
progressed very favorably and there
are many long stretches of track practically now ready for operation. With
the same progress that has been made
the present season, the entire line from
Levis to Moncton will probably be ready
for operation some time next season.
West from Quebec there is something
over 200 miles already completed, and
of the Abitibi Section 250 miles of
track will be ready next season. East
of Lake Superior Junction to the head
of Lake Nipigon there should be from
100 to 175 miles of track completed
before the end of 1911.
"If the present good progress is
continued, I can see no reason why
these different sections should not be
connected up by the end of 1913.
Labor Situation  Ipmroved
"The labor situation in the east is
considerably improved, and I understand
from our contractors, Foley, Welch &
Stewart, that they see considerable
improvement here. Whether it will
continue to give them sufficient men to
rush the work next season remains to
be seen.
"We apprehend, however, that there
will be a continual stringency in the
labor market until many of the large
works which are now under way are
completed. Construction work, especially in the east, is very heavy; this company having under contract something
over one thousand miles of branch
lines, and the Canadian Pacific and
Canadian Northern are extending very
extensively both on the prairies and
in the eastern provinces: all of which
tends to keep the labor market short."
It is the intention of Mr. Chamberlain to return on the Prince Rupert
tomorrow.
HAYS PORT ARBITRATION
May Be No Decision Till Friday
Although a great deal of evidence
is being heard and must still bc heard
by tbe arbitrators in the Hays Port
arbitration case now proceeding, the
decision will be simply to fix the proper
value of the four acres of land spread
along the waterfront there for which the
G. T. P. offer J500, and which the
present owners value at upwards of
that much per acre. A number of
witnesses have given evidence regarding
the value of the land for cannery purposes, and the arbitrators are already
waxing so learned in the lore of currents
on the Skeena river that the suggestion
has been made that they will make
excellent Skeena river pilots by the
time the case ends.
Proceedings which have been more or
less tedious, involving considerable repetition of evidence, will probably last
until Friday as the witnesses for the
G. T. P. have yet to be examined. L.
Patmore and W. E. Fisher are the
lawyers engaged in the case.

Narrow Escape From Death
Mobile, Nov. 23.���(Special)-Aviator
McCurdy had a narrow escape from
death this morning, at the exhibition
flights here. Just as he was alighting
his machine turned turtle and he was
thrown out. He was badly bruised but
no bones were broken.
"Doc" Morgan was host at a wild
goose dinner party at the Tea Kettle
Inn last evening. Owing to the hunter's
modesty in bringing in the game the
party was limited to eight. The guests
were delighted with the spread and as
evidence of their appreciation <>ne of
them discovered a shot hole in the
breast of the bird
A little later, however, another guest
who is credited with a jealous disposition, found deeper in the hole the
point of the prong of a pitch-fork. Thus
was the mystery of the killing of the
pet geese of Georgetown solved.
POPULAR YOUNG COUPLE
To Wed on December First
A wedding the news of which will be
welcomed with great good feeling in
Prince Rupert is announced for the
first of December. The young couple
who are to be the principals on the glad
occasion are Mr. F. Henning and Miss
Agnes Birkett both of whom are well
known and very popular indeed in this
city. After the wedding they plan a
honeymoon trip to Vancouver, Victoria
and Seattle. They will return to reside
in Prince Rupert, however, at which
general satisfaction is expressed.
BALLARD OF JAN AND DAN
Little Scrap on Third Avenue Ends
in Police Court
After a three day silence, occasion for
a rhyme, occurs in the Police Court���a
scrapping case this time. The scene
it was Third avenue, the time was
yestereve. The row was over money
you'll readily believe. Jan Strib and
Daniel Schupert, both foreigners of
course, differed about a little debt, and
after words came force. Said Jan to
Dan, "You rascal, you lick me for four
bits." Dan "yoomped" at Jan, and Jan
"yoomped" too: they gave each other
fits. Jan fled into a busy store and overturned some fruit. Dan coming hard
behind him got busy with his boot.
The glad spectators crowding round
applauded at the view; and Jan explained he'd only run to find the man
in blue. The officer was on the spot
and thus in court today, both Dan and
Jan appeared, and both had five spot
lines to pay. For Jan was wrong to
scrap about a debt he rightly owed, and
Dan was wrong because he'd used bad
language on the road. There was some
talk of knife play but we don't believe
that's true. For the leg that Dan said
Jan had stabbed is only black and blue
They Were "Too Smart"
The newsboyB of Prince Rupert are
in no ways behind those of other large
centres in business smartness. Immediately after the arrival of the Prince
Rupert this morning they were crying
the coast newspapers���"All about the
execution of Crippen," although the
execution did not take place until this
morning and therefore could not be
found in the newspapers they were
offering for Bale.
