(Special to the Optimist)
Lisbon, Nov. 7.���There is a prospect
that the speedy abolition of slavery in
the Portuguese colonies will be one of the
most welcome results of the new regime
in Portugal.
Another decision that is calculated to
engage popular sentiment is the release
today of every political prisoner by
order of the new administration. Some
of them have spent years in jail, while
others were only arrested during the
recent revolution. Furthermore the
sentences of all criminal prisoners are
to be reduced one-third, as part of these
an- also political offenders.

TO VOTE ON
LOCAL OPTION
Prince Rupert is to have a local option contest before the end
of this year. This wns made
certain today, when the Libera
executive met and at the request
of the Federal Government appointed a returning officer. Mr.
J. Lome MacLaren was the
choice of the convention. Voting
will probably take place in the
last week of December, as it was
considered advisable to have the
question settled before the municipal vote is taken. Should local
option carrv, all the bars in town
would have to close within a period of one hundred and fifty days.
Under tht Canada Temperance
Act a bare majority can decide
the issue.

dangerous route of any yet attempted.
(Special to the Optimist)
Chicago, Nov. ".--The political campaign prior to the elections in twenty-
five states ended on Saturday night with
the usual rival parades and whoop-up
meetings. It is confidently predicted
that the Democrats tomorrow will night
emerge from the fight with a majortiy
sufficient to control both the house of
representatives and the senate. A careful estimate of the voting in 391 districts
gives   the   Democrats    207    members
against 184 for the Republicans.
Intense excitement prevails over  the
1 gubernatorial   contest   in   New   York,
where Roosevelt figures.   The next hot
i fight is in  Ohio,  where the  insurgent
Republicans seem likely to defeat Tuft
! in his home state.   Then comes Illinois,
where Ex-Speaker Cannon is up for reelection.     There   seems   scarcely   any
doubt but that Uncle Joe will be defeated.    The  betting this morning  on
New York state was even, on general
results the odds were nearly two to one.

Steel will touch the three figure
mileage on Wednesday. General Sui-e--
intendent Mehan is confidant of this.
His recent excursion up to steel-end has
been satisfactory. Now that the contractor has got the rails across the
Kitsumkalum river the big ballast pit
which was situated at Mile 91 just across
the bridge, can be tapped and ballasting
will now proceed as rapidly as possible.
So   far   about   20   miles   have   been
ballasted with the coarse ballast available which was hard to work, and the
necessity for waiting for the bridge has
kept back this part of the work a little.
The   bridge   is   built;   the big   ballast
j pit is o|M-ned. and the speedy completion
j of the ballasting of the first  100 miles
I of the G. T. P.  Railway from  Prince
I Rupert will make the road so far one
; of the heat constructed on the American
| continent.     And   the   work   is   always
| advancing ahead of steel with the same
I solidity.
General Su|>erinlcndcnt Mehan desired
to make clear the matter of the reported
i washout last week al Mile 14. Various
rumors of a mud slide, a washout, or a
rock slide were current in the city.
"The   facts   are   these,"   said   General
, Superintendent Mehan today, "on Wed-
; nesday afternoon at Mile 44 where the
mountain is very high and runs down
I close to grade, during a high wind
storm, evidently one or two trees must
! have been blown over on the mountain
jsidc. These started the earth down,
loosen!.;;: other trees and stones and
pieces of rock which rolled down on to
'the grade.
"Thc section men who were engaged
' in clearing at that particular point
soon discovered the slide, and we got
a sulficient force on to clear it awny as
promptly as possible. We do not anticipate further troubles from sources
of this kind in future, because we aro
clearing away everything liable to cause
such troubles along the line with the
greatest care."

"Dont's for Housewives"
Following the recent disclosures of the
extent to which shopkeepers in New
York have been defrauding their customers by short weight and fradulent
scales, Clement J. Driscoll, Commissioner of Weights and Measures, has
published for free distribution a book
entitled "Don'ts for Housewives." It
is interesting reading as showing the
trickery or some of the merchants in the
big cities.
The commissioner warns women that
the only safe way to keep house now-
adaws is to have always on hand in the
kitchen a good scales and a set of liquid
and dry measures, so as to keep tabs
on the food bought from the tradesmen. Bills, too, should be scrutinized,
Driscoll says, insamuch as many merchants, butchers especially, make a
. practice of putting down the price of
the meat, but not the weight. Here are
the don'ts.
Don't permit your grocer or dairyman to weigh in the wooden butter
dish when he is weighing your butter.
Don't let the fancy package goods
fascinate you, because you are frequently paying very heavily for the
fancy package.
Don't buy in a careless manner. Always ask for whatever the commodity
is by a known weight or measure.
Don't buy in small quantities if you
can avoid it.
Don't mistake cheapness for economy.
Don't be afraid to carry a bundle
unless you are prepared and willing to
stand the expense of having it delivered
at your home.
Don't gossip with your merchant
while he is weighing your purchases
unless you are absolutely sure of the
honesty of your tradesman.
Don't be ashamed or too proud to do
your own purchasing.
Don't be afraid of your tradesman.
Don't leave your shopping till the
last minute and then buy in a hurry.
Don't neglect to test the weight of
package goods at home and compare
them with the weight of the same commodity purchased loose.
Many measures used by shopkeepers,
the commissioner asserts, have false
bottoms.
"Do not," he urges on the food buyers, "leave the trimmings of meat that
are charged up to you with your
butcher. If the butcher can sell them
at various prices per pound, surely they
have some value to you. The fat can
be rendered into lard, the bones can be
used in soup, and any careful housewife can certainly find many uses for
the meat trimmings. It is one of the
practices of dishonest butchers and
grocers to keep scales as highly sensitive as possible, so that the hand, or
the computing dial, or the weighing indicator will move so rapidly there will
be an apparent reason for bringing the
scales to a stop with the hand."
Driscoll advises against telephoning
ord.rs. Better go and buy personally
is his suggestion.
! day of enlightenment does come the
sensible mother and the astute fsmmm
sensible mother and the astute father
will realize that a working knowledge
of how to get along with people is
more to be desired than much wisdom
in so-called higher branches. Tact is
more important than trignometry. It
stands a girl in place of beauty; it
takes her further than talent; it brings
the world to her feet to do her homage.
Tact! Speed the day when we shall
appreciate the importance of this unconsidered tritle! Help us to realize
that with it a woman can wheedle the
world out of anything it has to give;
! but with her feeble strenght she can't
; wrestle with it and get anything.

Ribbon Noveltiei
Some of the big wholesale houses in

imported ribbons and velvets show this
combination. One noi,<cable novelty is
a wide taffeta ribbon of vhite, four to
six inches wide, with a black border of
one inch for the narrower and two
inches for the wider. In another ribbon
the two colors are reversed, the white
velvet forming the boarder to the black
center. Embossed white velvet on a
black ground, and vice versa, is another
of a particularly soft coloring, and
supple material.

Porcelain pans may be whitened by

If a piece of cheese is carefully wrapped
in a cloth wrung out in vinegar it will
neither dry nor gather mold.
When using sandpaper to remove old
i paint, try wetting it with benzine. The
' work will be accomplished sooner.
If a fish is dipped in milk and then
, in flour or cracker crumbs it will brown
quite as well as though first dipped in
egg.
Minced chicken, to which a generous
amount of mayonnaise has been added,
makes a delicious filling for a summer
sandwich.
Nuts are excellent as a substitute for
meat, but should be eaten at mealtime. They are more digestible with a
little salt.
A paste made of emery powder and
olive oil i< excellent for polishing steel
articles of any kind. Follow with a clean
rag.
For dinner at night try a mold of
jellied chicken. It is not difficult to
prepare, and will be found most appetizing.
The Talent of Talents
If a woman is blessed with tact, she
has the supreme gift. It will bring
her all the things she needs. To her it
is a much more valuable asset than
beauty, or even genius. Tact is certainly the greatest of all gifts to a
woman.

Utopia is going to include a course in
tact to correlate with its curriculum
from the primary grades on through

LITTLE LORD FAUNTELROY EDUCATION
AND COMMONSENSE
The little incident which supplies our text happened in a fashionable Vancouver
suburb a couple of weeks ago. An elegantly dressed little biy of about eight years
was the chief personage in the picture. His black velevt suit and lace collarette
suggested that his mother might have read "Little Lord Fauntleroy." He was
undoubtedly "somebody's darling".
Had the little lord been quietly walking along between two uniformed nurses
he would have attracted no attention.   He would have fitted into the scenery'.
But instead, the little lord was busy in the roadway with a scavenger's broom,
struggling with all his strength to gather up the street sweepings, Every now
and then he paused to rest and to look for approval to the scavengers beery-looking
individual who leaned against the wheel of his garbage wagon, seemingiy too dull
to sense the humor of the situation.
We did not stav to watch the comedy develop. If there is any truth in the
statement that history repeats itself, the little lord was probably hurried home,
spanked and sent to bed. Instead, we walked along turning over in our mind some
of the serious questions which the incident suggested. Why for instance should
little Lord Fauntleroy want to sweep the streets of Vancouver? And why, again,
should it be held a spankable act on his part? Probably, it were the one
useful social act in the little chap's life thus far: he may live to a ripe old age and
never perform another.
The whole story of why and how he fell a victim to the impulse lo work would
take many pages to tell. Perhaps no man can tell the whole story: certainly the
little chap himself would know little of the processes which .mpelled him. "Because
1 wanted lo," would represent the total of his explanation.
But there is a reason for everything���a reason why little girls love to play |
whs. dolls while little boys play Indians;  why little girls like playing shop while
little boys prefer baseball.   These things are as necessary for the development of
the higher faculties of the child as eating and drinking are for his or her physical
development.   Had the owners of little Lord Fauntleroy only realized it, his am-1
bition lo sweep the streets  of Vancouver was the promise of a noble and useful,
life.
One of the newest discoveritss of the educational experts, is that the so-called
"fads and frills" of education, such as manual training, flower-growing, sewing,
cookery, clay modelling, weaving and embroidering are the fundamental
things in education while the "three R's" are the real fads and frills. And why?
Because the real work of man or woman is neither reading, writing nor 'rithmetic
but the building of houses, the growing of foodstuffs, the making of cloth and the
cooking of victuals. All that cultivates the faculties and prepares the rhild for
the work of life is education. The value of reading, writing and 'rithmatic is chiefly
so far as they relate to the economic and industrial life. Even in the case of the
professional scholar, his studies are valuable only because they enable other men
to perform the work of life more capably.
The only trouble with little Lord Fauntleroy was that he was ahead of his
time. In educational ideals as in other things the child is ofttimes father to the
man.   Common sense is still the highest as it is the rarest kind of sense.
Fortunately for the youth of Prince Rupert, there is ample room for them to
develop their muscles, their wits and their ingenuity, and in the splendid new
school, and gymnasium under the management of a progressive and untrammelled
Board there is every assurance that their physical and educational interests will
be well cared for.

great regret, as Mr. Simpkins is very

The recent arrival of the rolling

unfortunately followed by a fatal accident. The Camosun yeaterday brought
a summons to Governemnt Agent McMullin to attend at Stewart and enquire
into the death of J. B. Tromblay a conductor who was crushed between two
cars while coupling them. He died
shortly after the accident. Details are

DISLOCATED HIS SHOULDER
Foreman   of   Power   Plant   Hurt   in
Friendly   Bout
While having a friendly boxing bout
with a friend named Noren on Sunday
afternoon in a room on Second avenue,
Mr. Simpkins, foreman of the new
power house plant had his right shoulder
dislocated. The men just got warmed
up to the fun, when in the second round
they clinched, and Noren drew Mr.
Simpkin'B arm up over his head with a
jerk, causing the dislocation.
Dr. Tremayne was at once called in,
and  managed  to  get the shoulder set
About nine o'clock last night just as
j the   church   services   were   concluded,
| Fire Chief Mclnnes and his staff noticed
' flames  and  sparks  spouting  from   the
roof   of   Vernor   Smith's   residence   on
Third avenue.   The house   is quite near
thc fire station, and Chief Mclnnes had
the chemical engine on the spot  in  a
twinkling.
Aid. Smith was out and the occupant*
of the house were unaware that their
home was in peril until the firemen
arrived. The trouble was an overheated
flue, the only real danger being from the
sparks which scattered widely. Fire
Chief Mclnnes remarked that if the
same thing had occurred on a dry night
it would have been considerably more
serious. As it was the fire was out in a
few moments.

There were only thirty tons of freight
consigned for Skeena river points that
was not shipped before navigation
closed so that there will be no hardship
on the point of supplies this winter.
Captain Jackman, of the Port Simpson,
says it was a good season for steam-
boating. His boat mede thirty round
trips on the Skeena and three trips up
the Stikine to Telegraph creek, and the
close of the season found the steamer
in first class shape. She is laid up at

Receives $100 for New Word
Sacramento, Cat., Nov. 8.���For coining a new word as a synonym for moving
picture entertainments, Edgar Strakoach
of this city has been awarded a cash
prize by a New York moving picture
film concern. The word which drew the
prize was "photoplay."
All the latest and most popular sheet
music at Wark's Jewelry Store.
"In fancy I seem to hear the voice of
the aged apostle St. John sounding over
the still waters of Shawatlans Lake
where the bodies rest of those we mourn
tonight���Harry Gilroy and Alexander
Allen���speaking in tones of tenderest
love the words "Little children, your sins
are forgiven you.' "
So, eloquently, at last night's memorial
service in the Angelican church did
Bishop Du Vernet recall to his hearers
the tragic death of these two young
members of the city engineering stall
on September UOth. A large gathering
of Prince Rupert's old residents and
friends of the deceased young men were
present at the service. Bishop Du Vernet
preached on verses of the Second Chapter
of St. John's First Epistle dealing as he
said, with things eternal, as contrasted
with things temporal.
After touching on the need e>f the
West for men of strength and action,
but also of men of mature judgment
gained through ripe experience, the
Bishop dwelt on the glory of strength
to a young man, and the prize of victory
won through it. "There is no nobler
sight," he said, "than to see a young
man of splendid physique who is strong
also to wage war against the powers of
darkness���battling for all that is true and
pure and noble against all that is mean
and dark and degraded.
"We wish this evening" he went on,
"to pay our tribute of respect to Harry
Gilroy, a member of this congregation
who was removed from our midst by
the sad drowning accident on Lake
Shawatlans. It would be difficult to
find a young man of more perfetc
physique than Harry Gilroy. He possessed the rare combination of great
strength coupled with wonderful grace.
He was a type of perfect young manhood, and his outward appearance
had behind it a character in keeping.
"He was courageous. During the
South African War as a member of
Lord Strathcona's Hone he was many
times under fire, and escaped unscathed
though bullets twice pierced his hat. He
was faithful in the discharge of his
duties. Those above him in the engineering department of the city some of whom
are here tonight testify to this. He was
placed in a difficult position, and he
filled it well. He was a trusted and
valued employee of the city. The
accident by which he lost his life happened at the close of an arduous day's
work when he was returning to camp.
The Great Engineer Who has the plans
or all our lives spread out before Him,
knew that not only his day's work but
also his life's work was done.
"Self sacrifice is a characterisitc of all
who throw themselves into great works
for the good of others not calculating
the cost to themselves. Thousands
will drink of the water provided for this
city by the toil of men whose hardships,
risks and efforts how few will ever
think of!"
The Bishop told dramatically the
story of another young fellow who lost
his life trying to save a girl's life in
broken ice on the Ottawa River. He
had gone to his death saying "What else
can I do?"
"What else can I do?" said the
Bishop, "may well have been the thought
of Harry Gilroy when he abandoned the
half submerged canoe to strike out for
the shore. The canoe might support the
others safely, but knowing himself strong
and a good swimmer, Gilroy chose not to
burden it with his weight, but made for
the shore giving the othors the chance
of their lives but losing his own . 'Greater
love hath no man than this that a man
lay down his life for his friends.' "

j CHIPS FROM THE '
[HUMORISTS.
He Couldn't Swim
This story is told by Jerome K. Jerome, the humorist. Returning from
abroad one time he fell into good company with the exception of one man,
who was what is known as a "walking
encyclopedia."
This man persisted in giving all
sorts of information, much to the annoyance of Mr. Jerome and others.
One morning as the travelers leaned
over the rail admiring the rising sun,
the man with the information turned
to them and said most solemnly:
"Gentlemen, if the earth were flattened out the sea would be two miles
deep over the whole world."
Mr. Jerome turned around, seemingly
stunned. Then he grew indignant, and
walking over to the other man, he said,
shaking his ringer menacingly: "Look
here man, if you catch any man trying
to flatten out the earth shoot him on the
spot.   I can't swim."
