r. Blakemore Surpassed Himself in Brilliant Speech
-Mr. Thos. Dunn Gives Amusing Explanation of
Why Fargo's Luck  Changed   Since 1884
HOPES RAN HIGH
FOR A VICTORY
AT TEMPERANCE PARTY'S RALLY
LAST NIGHT
Ir. William Blakemore wound up his
kpai-rn against the adoption of the
It   Act   in   the   Empress   Theatre
night when he again received thc
^pliment of a crowded house.    In
course of  his  campaign  he  may
allowed  several   minor  stars  to
in his refulgence but Inst night
.witched  them  off  completely   by
vcring an address, the fluency and
leal  argument  of  which  made  his
leagues look like a lot of stammering
flren.
he first thing he did was to have a
; at Mr Faris'* $100 by endeavoring
ove that what he said was not
He  had  another  shot   at   Dr.
nccr, who, he reminded them, had
ed  thai   Mr.   Faris  had  come  all
way from Victoria or Vancouver
|ake part in the campaign.   That
lenient did not tally with Mr. Faris's
effect thnt he did not come to
Rupert in  the interests of the
Act or of any other Act.   Having
ted   the   statements   side   by   side
Blakemore said that the hospital
lid  certainly  get  the money  "al-
," he added,  "I do not think
Mr.  Faris  is  a  liar,"  with  the
basis on the name.
Prohibition and Original Sin
his search for arguments against
Scott Act he went back to the
den of Eden and pointed out that
���������as prohibition in those dulcet days
It led tt the fall from which we were
suffering today, and he thought that
It very fact should make us careful
imposing any prohibitory laws upon
anybody.  Prohibition was demoralizing,
and the people behind the Scott Act
were so demoralized that they could
not   detect   right   from   wrong.     Mr.
Blakemore wound up with a magnificant
peroration, not altogether germane to
the   subject    but   which   nevertheless
carried the audience away and won for
him a thunderous applause.
How Fargo Fell
In introducing  Mr. Thomas  Dunn,
the chairman, Mr. Nelson recalled that
they  ai rived  together in the city ol
Prince Rupert some four years ago, and
a voice from the hack of the hall supplied
the missing link by interjecting "dead
broke," a state of affairs which  Mr.
Dunn very generously admitted.    Mr.
Dunn   made   some   irank   statements
regarding the nature and composition
of his opponents.   Dr. Spencer was an
arrant   and   miserable   coward   in   his
eyes and the rest of the Scott Act crew
were rapidly qualifying for the same
denomination.    Mr.   Dunn  made  one
very amusing slip but he was too busy
speaking to observe it.    It was when
he told the audience "in 1884 I went
through Fargo and it has gone down
ever since."   The audience enjoyed the
slip immensely.
Aldermen Pattullo and Hilditch were
both against the Scott Act. In the
opinion of Mr. Pattullo it would materially affect the business standing of the
city.
Speakers Were in Earnest and Aroused Great Enthusiasm. Aid. Hilditch Criticized City Solicitor,
Speaking by Invitation.
In the Majest'c Theatre last night a
crowded temperance rally gave expression vigorously in support of the Scott
Act. Great confiderce was expressed
by all the speakers that the voie today
would go in favor of the Scott Act, and
the m<-eting was enthusiastical'y responsive.
A. M. Manson who presided, in his
opening address rriticized severely the
methods of the opposing party who had
not, he said, fairly and squarely responded to the Temperance Party's
invitation to them to send speakers for
the return debate arranged.
Having been congratulated n thc
morning (or not apparently taking any
great part in the Scott Act movement.
Rev. Charles Sing got in line straight
away with the Temperance Party and
in his speech last night gave instances
of lives ruined by the bar.
Dramatic and forceful was the speech
of Rev. W. H. McLeod who roused the
ineetirg strongly by hiB appeal:
"Who says the Scott Act will fail
through lack of enforcement'.'" he cried.
"Give us the chance to have it here
to enforce, and we'll see that it is en
ferred or die in the attempt."
Another  strong  speech   was   H.   F,
PRINCE RUPERT VOTES
ON TEMPERANCE ISSUE
The Clamor of Party Rivalry is Succeeded by the People's Voice���Polling Proceeds Slowly at Various
Stations���-Heavy Poll Not Anticipated
Today is polling day upon one of the
most interesting and one of the most
import am issues that have yet brushed
across the horizon of the city of Prince
Rupert. By thc result of today's vote
it will be decided whether the people
will ingraft themselves in the general
atmospheric color scheme and remain
"wet"   or  whether  they   will  discard
the liquor traffic so far as it is identit'ed
with the open bars and saloons.   A run
round the various polling stations this
forenoon did not entirely bear out the
suggestion that upon the issue depended
the future prosperity of the city.  There
was   no   great   excitement   or  special
ardour displayed anywhere. The impression  created   itself  that  if  I'rince
Rupert is going to fall thus early in its
career, before the prospeclive crown had
even been sighted, it was going to do so
without a struggle, more like an aged
mendicant   welcoming   death   than   a
vital youth repelling it.
Voting Wa* Light
Up till about noon there were about
fifty votes polled in each of the booths,
a figure which while it represents a fair
ratio does not indicate that the poll
will be a record one. Many people are
out of town on holiday at the present
time, many more have been taking
part in the campaign who are not
possessed ol the franchise. Any calculation therefore as tu the result or the
extent of the poll is liable to be considerably out at the finish.
Stray Voter*
While very great attention has been
devoted by both parties as to who haa
the right lo vote very little has been
paid to the question of where to vole
and in consequence not a few individuals
went astray with their vote in their
pocket to be picked up just in time to
record his conviction in favor of one side
or the other.

"It has not hitherto been known that

Stockton. Cal., Dec. lO.-With the
suspension of the daughter ol a prominent family of this city from the local
high school yesterday, excitement runs
fever high. The girls have been given
an ultimatum that they must cease
wearing false curls or stay away from
classes.
Principal Ansel Williams, it is alleged, stated that unless many of the
girls cease to dress so conspicuously
there will be a general suspension.
Only a few of thc faint hearted girls
have amended their style of drees.,
howver. and they claim that Principal
Williams is avesse to enforcing his
authority.
The young woman suspended rsaerta
that she will not return to school unless
the other girN are compelled lo relinquish
their false ringletB. it is rumored about
the school that an effort will be made
to have every girl in the school adorned
with curls tomorrow and lhat as many
iss are able will dress themselves with
I the hobble skirt.

contends that the position of women
; in the East is not sanctioned by the
| founder of their religion.   She says:
"We want to be treated as persons
nnd not as domestic animals; wo want
a place, and a suitable place, not a
mere cage, in theatres and cafes and
public conveyances; we want the place
Mal-omet gave us, equal to mar; but
it is not modern feminism that we
wish for; we seek to rema'n in our
homes and seek no part in public life."
"Certainly Mahomet chose all that
was best in Judaism and Christianity
and put it into the Koran." And that
was her conclusion at every point���
Mahomet was right: what Mahomet
had done or said was well done and
well said. "Only, alas, the Ulemas
have changed the teaching of Mahomet; the Ulemas have made women
cover their faces; in Turkestan, where
the pure Turks live, women are still
unveiled. Mahomet taught that women were exactly equal to men; in
ancient timea women ruled in Turkestan. This year there is to be a uni
versal congress of all Mussulmans,
Turks, Russians, Egyptians, Arabs, Indians and Chinese, to he held in Ind'a,
and one of the principal points of discussion will be certain six verses of
the Koran relating to women, of which
the exact translation has never been
settled."
The treatment of thc:r women has
always been a mark of the progress of
the races of men. Perhaps nothing
has contributed more to the advance
of Christianity than the hono ard respect and even the reverence in which
women have ben held by those who
have professed that religion.
the use of tobacco, is growing. For
this, athletics and the boy scout movement should receive much credit.

Sewing Machine Hint*
When much machine work has to
be done, filling the shuttle is a constant
annoyance. This can be partsy obviated
by threading the shuttle with finer
cotton than that used on the net-die.
The sewing will be quite as strong, and
the shuttle will not need refilling half
so often as it would if threaded with
the same number of cotton as the needle,
because the bobbin will hold a great
deal more of the finer cotton.
If you want your sewing machine to
do satisfactory work, remember that
it needs 'o be kept clean. After every
ten hours' work it needs oil; but all
surplus oil must be carefully wiped
off aiterward. Always work it stei-dily
and never start or stop with a jerk.
The beet way to finish off a machine
seam ia to turn the material round
and stitch back for about an inch.
This saves ty'ng the ends o' cotton,
which is annoying work and takes up
a good deal of time if there are many
seams.
SEASONABLE
Practical Household Hints
For dusting women's heavily trimmed
hats the best brush is a cheap shaving
brush, as it is both stiff and small enough
to reach every crevice.
Sew matting with ratlin and prevent
unsightly stitches of thread. Raffia
very strong and may be bought to match
almost any kind of matting.
A simple way of repairing a rent in
an umbrella is to use a p>oee of ordinary
adhesive plaster. If the plaster is not
black it may be easily colored.
Fill a bottle with hot water, place the
splinter over the mouth, press tightly:
the suction will loosen it, and it will be
an easy matter to remove it.
Nails used in bathrooms and kitchens,
on which damp clothea are hung, should
be painted with enamel so that they will

Preparing For Franchise
The women of Spokane who belong
to the Young Women's Christian Association believe that the recent decision of thc electorate to give them
the franchise makes poKt'cal education
necessary. If they rray vote they
want to vote wisely. In order to do
thia they are about to enter upon a
course of study of political subjects.
No better decision could be reached. < n���t leave rusty marks.
The man or woman who thinks the
business of governing a ration is an
easy one and that the voter's share in
it carries no responsibility is unfit to
exercise the franch'se. There are already far too many ingorant and prejudiced voters in all self-governelng
countries and there are many corrupt
ones. If in Washington the women are
resolved to be able to give a reason
for the political faith they hold, there
will be little danger that the privilege
they have gained will ever be revoked.
It is to be hoped thnt the Spokane
women w.ll undertake their studies
in the spirit of humility without which
the attainment of knowledge is impos-
sihle. To be able to say "I do not
know" or I cannot understand" is often
the first step toward progress.

THE FATE OF MR. MANSON
For reasons known not only to himself, but to many others, Mr. William
Manson saw fit to stay in hisding yesterday, and allow the temperance campaign
to end without any statement from him.
He knew of the charge which day after day in this column has been laid against
him. He knew o' the challenge to clear himself. He knew of the fair terms that
were offered him.
If he has any political conscience he must have felt the duty he owed to one
or both of the two parties he has given pledges to. If he has any adequate sense
of the responsibilities laid upon a candidate for public office, he would have responded to the call to come and define his position. If he has any proper sense
of his honor as a political man, he would have hastened to clear himself from the
charge of double dealing.
It was thc reply of a weakling for him to tell those of his supporters who begged
him to come out and defend himself from the charge laid against him, that he
"would not have it said that the Optimist dragged him on to the platform." A
man who treasured his public honor would require no dragging. He would rush
lo its defence. Beside his honor, his personal vanity would be of no account. The
disappointment of many of his supporters, and their intention to throw him over
are quite justified. A man without the courage of his convictions, however estimable he may be as a private citizen, has no place in public life.
What confidence could the citizens have in such a man in any great issue?
Always there would be the fear that while he spoke one thing he meant another.
His assurances would have little weight.
This has been exemplified in the past week. Nothing could be more explicit
than the assurances of support Mr. Manson gave the liquor men. But the condition he exacted, that he be not betrayed to the temperance party has made
them suspiciuus. Their deductions were warranted. Why should he not give
a similar pledge and exact a similar promise from the temperance party? If ho
would deceive one, why not the other? It is always the fate of the double-dealer
that he loses the confidence of both parties.
This is the fate of Mr. Manson.

It was suggested by Commiasioner
Smith that nev applications for licenses

Protests Against Licenses
That no further licenses be granted
until the exact population of the city
ia ascertained because to grant more
than a certain percentage of l'censes
to the population is illegal, was the
purport of a petitoin from the Local
Option League which waa re>-eived and

by Mayor Stork, chairman of the commission, that only one more license
could be granted. He said that while
3,500 was a safe estimate ol the population, 4,600 was doubtful and 5,500
out of the question. He moved that
Maurice Bondeau's application be considered.
Three Licenses Granted
Confident that there are 6,000 people
in Prince Kupert, Commissioner Smith
called the chairman's intention to the
fact that the first application to consider
was J. Y. Rochester, and moved the

Bondeau and J. Y. Rochester be all
three considered with a view to granting
licenses, and the ballot taken. This
was carried, Commiaaioner Stork voting
against.

deau's application for licenae for the
Windsor Hotel was granted without
dissent. J. *i\ Rochester's for the
Empress Hotel with one vote against,
and Peter Black's tor the Central
Hotel by the same majority. Mr.
Black was not present to give evidence
of the proper posting of the notice of
application for the requisite term on
his building but the commissioners
were satisfied that tb<a had been done.

i piles which are to be used in thc

i*ed with the contract of building

kendous weight no driving will be

reinforcement girders which play

these  steel  ribs  is  placed  a

I considerable amount of power as tbe
perage weight of the piles is about
and a half tons.   The pile has
en patented by the company's engineer,
Jr. Ferguson, and it is expected that
will prove to be all the wonderful
���'ngs said in iu behalf.
Beit Wharf in the World
The scheme of construction provides
at the main piles will bo supplemented
either side with other piles   placed
��� tangent thus forming a support.
this way when the wharf  is com-
the piles will be arranged in thc
same way as the tressles of a bridge, and
in order to protect the outer pile from
the dead shock of a steamer coming
against it the company have a device
that will stave off from the concrete
any destructive bump,
When completed it is fondly anticipated that the wharf will be one of
the best not only on the western coast
of British Columbia but on the entire

Deitined for Victoria to Vancouver
A HUMOROUS RASCAL
Five weeks ago a boy and a girl left
Russia. He was fourteen; she was
twelve. They could speak only their
native language, but despite the handicap of being unfamiliar with the English
tongue, they set out for British Columbia.
He was going to Victoria where his
brother, J. Katz, of 543 Johnson street
ran a successful, though small hotel in
Victoria. The girl was going to relatives
in Vancouver.
They landed at Portland, Maine, and
yesterday reached Seattle. There the
railroad officials got the two confused.
They sent the boy to Vancouver and the
girl to Victoria.
The little fellow landed at 7 o'clock
at night from a Great Northern train.
With a "carry-all" wicker bag���larger
than himself���he walked to the Empress
hotel, Hastings street. He could not
make himself understood. He showed
a card with his brother's name on it���
his desired destination.
It was at first thou-fht he had no
means. A policeman entered the hotel
and took him to police headquarters,
where he was to be given lodgings
gratis for the night and then sent to
Victors in the morning.
In the crowd that gathered sympathy
was expressed for the litt'e fellow. Several gave him money���a half, a dollar.
He refused to accept the same.
At the station an interpreter was
found The boy told his troubles. He
had money���his brother had seen to
that. He was no mendicant. He wanted
lodgings and food, but he wanted to
pay for them. His Russian friends
accompanied him back to the Empress
hotel. There he was taken care of and
given a good breakfast. A telegram
was sent by the clerk of the hotel to
his brother and the boy was put aboard
the 10 o'clock boat.
He will find tbe girl and see that she
is sent back here to her relatives, who
are alarmed at her failure to arrive.

Pauei Bogus Bill With an Apology
Written On  It
Somewhere about this city there's
wandering a youthful son of Italy
who, besides having some of the earmarks ot a future captain of industry,
knows a joke when he sees one, even
if it has a criminal tinge to it. \f
(In Saturday this unknown lad walked
into a down town toy shop with an
evident desire to become the owner ol
a toy engins' and a top. He got them all
right and paid the shopkeeper what the
latter thought was a $10 bill, depar ing
with $8.75 in good, honest change.
Later the man in the sloie looked the
supposed money over and this is what
he saw, "I. O. U. Nothing It was a
shame to do it hut I needed the money."
At Ant blush on a dark niv*ht thc flimsy
might have been taken for money, but
it cer.ainly doesn't boar scrutiny. The
police are now on the lookout for the
enterprising young Italian.
Run  Between  Vancouver  and
Fort George
Vancouver, Dec. 10.���The Grand
Trunk Pacific, owing to the competition of rival railways, h��i issued orders
orders that the final location of the line
between Vancouver and Fort George
is to be proceeded with forthwith and
continued throughout the coming winter.
From Lillooet, on the Fraser, the route
ia officially described as follows: Up the
west bank of the Fraser, crossing Bridge
river and continuing up the Fraser to
Ward's creek, where the river will be
bridged to Big Bar. From the last
mentioned point the line will ascend
the east bank of the Fraser to the
vicinity of Fort George.
J. Gunn Is in charge of the survey
party working south from the vicinity
of Fort George and F. Stewart is directing the outfit that is ascending the
Fraser from Lillooet.
It is said that the exact point where
the branch line will strike tho main line
must be left open for some time. This
is in consequence of the unwillingness
of the Indians to assign or sell their
rights to the Fort George Indian reserve
the purchase of which is being sought by
the railway company.

and Repairs
A cprrespondent of Lloyd's Weekly
News at Geneva announces the discovery
of a little Utopia where life is entirely
free irom the competition and anxieties
of the working world.
Inhabitants of the village of Bur-
tigny. beautifully situated on the slopes
of the Jura Alps, in the Canton of
Vaud, have no rates and taxes to pay.
The village, after paying ita debts,
which amount to between one hundred
and forty to one bundreto fifty pounds a
year, divides the surplus of about ten
pounds among the oldest inhabitants.
The village owns forests,
and tracts of fertile land, as well as
cattle. Tbe villagers possess in common their own water service and reservoir, a cafe, wine presses, public
fountain and weighing machine, a baker's
shop, and a dairy.
Everything ia sold at cost price, and
the surplus stock is sent to the market in the vicinity. Very little money
exchangee hands. Most of the necessities of life are paid for in kind and by
labor.
When the vintage takea place each
family receives so much wine, and the
remainder is sold to "outsiders." The
same system prevails when the timber is cut every year. If a member ol
the community becomea ill or old and
unable to work, he or she receives food
and lodg-ng free.
Each inhabitant is content to work
hard for the common good.    Crime is
unknown.    The village sends few but
j splendid young men to do their service
in the federal army.

"Yes," admitted the author of a
successful book, "1 woke up one morning
and found myself famous."
"It was different with me," remarked
the politician who had made an ill-
advised speech. "One morning I found
myself famous���then I woke up."
"Yes," said the specialist, as he
stood at the bedside of the miser millionaire, "I can cure you."
"But what will it cost?" came feebly
from the lips of the sick man.
The specialist made a swift mental
calculation "Ninety-five dollars," waa
the answer.
"Can't you shade your figure a little?"
wa:led the other. "The undertaker's bid
is much less."
An old negro was brought up before
the judge, charged with chicken stealing,
and when the usual question waa propounded, "Guiliy or not guilty?" he
aaid: "I don't know, boss; I jest
throw myself on the ignorance of the
court."
CHINA WANTS A NAVY
Negotiating Foreign Loan of Twenty-
five Million* to Build
Pekin, Dec. 10.���The Chinese government has opened negotiations for a
further and distinct foreign loan of
$25,000,000 to be used for the development of tho navy. This is the result
of the report made by Prince Tsai Shun,
uncle of thc Emperor, after his visit
to America.
It is probable that Americans will
receive the largest share of the orders
for the construction of the new vessels,
and will furnish one quarter of the loan.
In aome quarters the new enterprise
is criticl-ted on the ground that China
does not require an enlarged navy,
while the money is needed badly for
reform.
DASHED TO DEATH
Two
Italian   Aviators   Fall    From
Height of 800 Feet
Rome, Dec. 10.���An aeroplane carrying an Italian officer and a private fell
from a height of 800 feet at the military
grounds at Centilco this evening.
Both men were killed instantly.
The aeroplane, a Farman machine,
was in charge of Engineer Cammorata,
and the acciden' appears to hsve been
dus to an attempt to make a ahort turn.
Cammarota is the third Italian officer
to bo killed in an aeroplane acciden
in the last four months. Lieutenant
Vivadi and Lieutenant Sagleiti both met
death while making flights.

is 261 years old you will see it at Wark's

What about the prices of these
High Class Goods
YOU TALK SO MUCH ABOUT ?
This is probably the question which has occurred to you when reading our advertisements, and we will
now answer it.
Commencing on Saturday the 17th .of December,   and  continuing up to 10 p.m. on Christmas eve, we
shall endeavor to CLEAR OUT THE BULK OF OUR STOCK AT KNOCK DOWN PRICES.
We have an enormous stock of Men's Furnishings. Our storage room is crammed with boxes from floor
to ceiling, and because of this we are unable to make an attractive Christmas display. Our windows are not
suitable for artistic dressing and our store is too small to show off to advantage the excellence of the goods
we have.
But we have a great variety of Men's Furnishings and of the Highest Class, the majority bought especially for Christmas.
We are unable to attract you by a tempting display, but we are going to tempt you by attractive prices.
And in addition we are going to GIVE AWAY SOME VALUABLE PRESENTS.
If you are in need of a SUIT OF CLOTHES you can buy it this Christmas under cost.
If you desire to make a few presents you will have a great variety of articles to choose from.
AND YOU WILL STAND A CHANCE OF RECEIVING A VALUABLE PRESENT FROM US.
This is probably the last Christmas our retail store will be in its present location and we intend to make
it a memorable one in the history of our firm and in the minds of our customers.
Around Christmaa the merchant looks forward to increaaed trade and extra profit, but we are not advertising this sale merely to catch the Christmas trade. We have to clear our stock and the name and standing
of our firm should be sufficient guarantee of our good faith.
Full Announcement Will Appear in Tomorrow's Papers

HOPES RAN HIGH
FOR A VICTORY
CONTINUED FROM PAOE 1
McRac's. He warned the audience that
the gravest menace to the present day
society was the centralization of capital,
and declared against the bar as one of
the channels through which the earnings
of the many flowed into the coffers of
the few.
Striking corrparisons showing that
the provisions of the Scott Act are in
many essential points practically identical with those of the Bowser Act, and
an improvement on them in certain
cases, were drawn by W. E. Williams.
Fresh from the Cititens' League
meeting Aid. Hilditch appeared and by
invitation gave the subarance of the
attack on the city solicitors he had made
at the league meeting. He contended
that the Impossibility of rigidly enforcing the License Law waa due to the
faulty framing of the City Licensing
By-law now being amended. Mr.
Williams in reply stated that the by-law
had been a rushed one framed in the
understanding that ita revision would
be an early duty of the city council.
It was not the city solicitor's part to
keep nagging at the council on matters
such aa thia.
Attention to the great importance
of this vote, as one of the two first taken
in British Columbia, waa drawn by Dr.
Spencer who dwelt nt length on the
advantages of Local Option .in var'ous
places.
Other good speeches were given by
Mr. Faris, Rev. Mr. James and G. R.
Naden. Towards the conclusion ol the
meeting a serried mass of the Liquor
Trade advocatea congregated at the
back of the theatre, and there was
some attempt at interruption. An
effort to secure a hearing by a young
man who advanced down the aisle
waa not entertained, and the meeting
dispersed after "God Save the King."
CHRISTMAS DINNER FOR ALL
Salvation Army Officers  Arrange a
Novel Entertainment
Thc officera of the local Salvation
Army corps, will serve a home-cooked
dinner, on Monday December, 26th,
commencing at 12:30 noon. During
their stay in the Klondike, they served
two similar dinners, and in each instance
had the pa.ronage, not only of the
man and woman without price, but
also of Dawson's leading cititens, such
a? High Sheriff Mr. Eilbeck, and many
nf the business men and doctors of the
city, with their familioa.
Everyone who comes will be served
by the Salvation Army, this coming
ChrUmai, and a special invitation Is
extended to any one without means,
but still, Ensign Johnstone wishes it to
be understood that thia dinner will
nn doubt satisfy the most exacting diner,
and will be served at 'able* suitable for
parties of four and six persons. There
will not be any charge made but a
box will be placed at the door, where
anyone may drop in whatever they
feel disposed to give, and whatever may
be above the expense of getting the
dinner up, will be devoted to the local
debt owed by the corpa. ThU arrangement, does away with any embarras-
ment made possible by a person being
without the price, and still makes it
possible for those who can to give.
Mrs. Ensign Johnstone and Lieutenant Wright have a reputation as
cooks. All the puddings, bread, pies,
all that will be served, will be cooked by
them.
An undenominational Christmaa tree
will be held in the Salvataion Army
Citadel on Tuesday night, December
28th, at 8 o'clock. Everyone will be
made welcome, nnd anyone de*irlng
to do so, may put presents on the army
tree for their friends.
Mr. aad Mrs. E. A. Woods moved
into their new bungalow residence on
Fifth avenue and Borden street on
Saturday.
