The Work of the Club
The   Chairman   in   announcing   the
rpose of  the  meeting  said  it   was
dless to say what a Canadian Club
, or lo state its object.   These were
; known.   He took up the constitu
tion of the Canadian Club of Berlin,
Or.t., pointing out that such clubs were
non-political and undenominational, and
the prime object of such organizations
was to enable its members to entertain
distinguished visitors to thei r city, to
get to know them and to give them a
better impression of the place than they
could otherwise gain. No place was
better situated that Prince Rupert
for such an organization. During our
brief existence as a city we had had
many distinguished visitors, the governor-general of Canada, the federal
premier,  the  premier  of  the  province

Viowlcdging the great advances Prince

pility since the grading has gone
��d. The work is impressing every-
| who has seen the city with its signs
mlid substantial and growing pros-
Bty.
The Mayor just heard that there was
a Local Option movement in progress
here- No comment was made upon it.
But he heard a great deal of comment
in reference to the G. T. P. assessment
and the city's attitude to it.
"Down in Vancouver where they
know what it means," said the Mayor.
"They think Prince Rupert would be
positively crazy to knuckle under to the
terms of Mr. Hays' proposition. They
expect to see Prince Rupert stand up
for her rights, .mil will be surprise! if she
doesn't."
Railway Waehed Out
Bellingham, Nov. 22.���(Special)���The
Great Northern Railway to Vancouver
has been badly washed out by floods
which threaten to be much worse than
those of last year in the Skagit district,
which did so much damage.
Sudden Flood in China
Saigon, Indo-China, Nov. 22.���(Special)���More than a thousand natives are
dead or missing as a result of a sudden
flood in Kwang Ngai and in the Annares
provinces. Four hundred native boats
laden with merchandise were lost.

Prince Rupert, B C. Nov. 19, 1910.
_ A. Woods, Esq.,
lC|ly Clerk, Prince Rupert,
(Re right of non-British subjects to have
name inserted in Voters' List)
Dear Sir,���I reply to your communication of 18th inst. in regard to above
matter, we would say that Section 13
of the Municipal Elections Act as interpreted by us means as follows:
1. No person not a British subject,
shall take any steps to have his or her
name inserted on the voters' list.
2. No person as above shall be
allowed to vote at any municipal
election.
As for the position of the city clerk,
it would appear to be largely a mechanical one subject to the following rules:
(a) Any person who has declared
himself to be a British subject should
have his name put on the list by the
clerk. '
(b) Anyone whose citizenship is not

CRIPPEN HAS MADE
FULL CONFESSION
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Nov. 22 -According to
the Times Dr. Crippen has made
a full confession. He is reported
to have told in cold, callous detail
the whole story of the murder of
Belle Elmore, how he poisoned
her with hyoscin, cut up the
body, buried it in lime, and all
the gruesome incidents. The
Times makes this statement in
spite of the fact that the prison
officials declare that the condemned has told no story of the crime.
The Times will print the confession tomorrow.

Three Cornered Fight
The Optimist is informed
on good authority that Mr.
C. V. Bennett, President of
the Local Option Association, has decided to enter
the mayoralty contest as a
temperance candidate. This
will probably mean a three
cornered fight.
Mr. Bennett was not in his
office this afternoon and the
Optimist was therefore unable lo obtain U statement
from him.
PRESIDENT HAYS SENDS CITY
A THREATENING TELEGRAM
Says He Will Make Public the Position of the Grand
Trunk Pacific on Assessment Squabble Unless
City's Ad. for Debentures Is Withdrawn
When the city clerk announced at
last night's city council meeting thai a
telegram had been received from C. M.
Hays there was a thrill of expectancy
in the air.
It was a false alarm, however. Then-
was nothing deing after all. The matter
referred to in the telegram had been
long since attended to.
The following is the telegram and the
reply by Acting Mayor Mobley:
Mr. Hays' Telegram
Montreal, Nov. 17, 1910.
"Fred Stork, Mayor Prince Rupert, B. C.
Am advised by our London office.
Prince Rupert is advertising in London
papers  for  $500,000  stating  that  oui
assessment is $7,300,000. Since the
amount of this assessment is to be
: contested it is misleading, and unless
the advertisement is withdrawn we shall
explain itoi public the position.
Chas. M. Hays."
Acting Mayor's Reply
To this  Acting   Mayor   Mobley  has
I replied:
"Advertisement   referred  to  was or-
I dered withdrawn October 26."
P. H. Mobley, Acting Mayor
The telegram was received and filed.
There was no discussion regaiding it
nor any comment made in council at tha
time.

PRESIDENT DIAZ
TAKES THE FIELD
NEW TEACHER APPOINTED
Rumor That Mies Le Neve Will Sell
His Confeesion to London Newspaper���Scaffold Ready for Use Tomorrow Morning.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Nov. 22.���Having heard that
Dr. Crippen had asked to see her and
been accorded permission by the author
ities of thc jail. Miss Le Neve repaired
to the prison last evening, thus putting
at rest the Btories that she had sailed
for Montreal. She was with the condemned mun for nearly two hours, nnd
it is now said that he made a full confession of the murder of his wife, Belle
Elmore, and that the girl has sold the
story of the confession to bc used by
a London newspaper immediately ufter
the hanging tomorrow.
The jail officials deny that Crippen
made any confession.
John Ellis, assistant executioner, raised
the gallows in the jail yard this morning
and tested the drop with a bug of sand.
The drop was found to work satisfactory
and at nine o'clock tomorrow morning
Dr. Crppen will be marched out of his
cell to meet his direful fate
Board   Will  Try  to  Hurry   Heating

CITY ARRANGES TO INSURE
LABORERS FROM ACCIDENT
Take Out a "Blanket Policy" to Protect All  Laborers
in City Employ���Some of the Aldermen Opposed Scheme But It Went Through
SIGN OF THE RAINBOW
Visit of Canadian Cruiser to Vancouver Means a Dry Time
CONTINUED ON  PAGE 5
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Nov. 22.���When the cruiser Rainbow is welcomed to this city
tomorrow only temperance drinks will
be sold. This will make no difference
to the "jackiea," as they are all teetotalers, but their hosts are liable to
suffer from a thirst unquenchable.
A decision to ensure all the laborers
employed on civic works against accident, under a "blanket policy," and
cha'ge the insurance up against the
various contractors was made by the
city council last night. The economy
and assurance of the scheme were strongly urged in its favor, though il was
opposed by Aid. Hilditch, who wanted
the question of insurance to be left to
each individual contractor.
Finance   Committee    Recommends
The finance committee who have been
considering the matter recommended
that an offer of thc Mack Realty company be accepted in which they agreed
to insure the city's liability as an employer of labor for 2 per cent. The idea
was to have thc contractors each take
his share in the payment of this rate,
as works were undertaken for the city.
Why the particular company mentioned should have the insurance busi
ness for all the city's employers liability,
was the question troubling Aid. Hilditch.
Rate Is a Low One
In explanation Aid. Pattullo pointed
out thut the firm named had approached
the city with the advantageous offer
to carry the city's risk as employer of
labor at the low rate of 2 |>er cent. He
had asked Aid. Smith who was experienced in these matters, about Ihe offer, and
had been told il was u lower rnte thun
Aid. Smith's firm were paying. There
was no preference as to insurance firms,
the thing was u purely business matter.
A   Difference  of  Opinion
It seemed to Aid. Hilditch that il
would be better if each contractor
looked after his own employees' liability
policy und selected his own insurance
company, but Aid. I'm ml lo thought
the blanket policy for the whole city

Latham through Angus Beaton. They
have the same general high character
of ore as the American Boy on which
the Harris Brothers are working four
men.
The Hazelton district has been going
ahead without much of a "hurrah,"
proving up the ore in a miner-like manner. Those who have pinned their
faith on suggestions from engineers,
prospectors and miners are now commencing to feel that they will be handsomely rewarded. With the Lead
King, Silver Cup, American Boy and
American Girl on Nine Mile mountain,
several unincorporated groups producing
on Hudson Bay mountain, Telkwa and
the head of Copper river, besides the
producers at Stewart and vicinity, all
tributary to Rupert, it is now confidently
expected that Prince Rupert will have
a smelter here in the near future.
The local firms who have been handling
Lead King and Silver Cup state that
there has been quite a big demand for
stock in the past two weeks.

"They think Prince Rupert would be

CRIPPEN HAS MADE
FULL CONFESSION
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Nov. 22 -According to
the Times Dr. Crippen has made
a full confession. He is reported
to have told in cold, callous detail
the whole story of the murder of
Belle Elmore, how he poisoned
her with hyoscin, cut up the
body, buried it in lime, and all
the gruesome incidents. The
Times makes this statement in
spite of the fact that the prison
officials declare that the condemned has told no story of the crime.
The Times will print the confession tomorrow.

* A- Woods, Esq.,
Cllv Clerk, Prinic Rupert,
(Re right of non-British subjects to have
name inserted on Voters' List)
Dear Sir,���I reply to your communication of 18th inst. in regard to above
matter, wp would say that Section 13
of the Municipal Elections Act as interpreted by us means as follows:
1. No person not a British subject,
shall take any steps to have his or her
name inserted on the voters' list.
2. No person as above shall be
allowed to vote at any municipal
election.
As for the position of the city clerk,
it would appear to be largely a mechanical one subject to the following rules:
(a) Any person who has declared
himself to be a British subject should
have his name put on the list by the
clerk. I
(b) Anyone whose citizenship is not

PRESIDENT HAYS SENDS CITY
A THREATENING TELEGRAM
Says He Will Make Public the Position of the Grand
Trunk Pacific on Assessment Squabble Unless
City's Ad. for Debentures Is Withdrawn
When the city clerk announced at
last night's city council meeting that a
telegram had been received from C. M.
Hays there was a thrill of expectancy
in the air.
It was a false alarm, however. There
was nothing doing after all. The mutter
referred to in the telegram had been
long since attended to.
The following is the telegram and the
reply by Acting Mayor Mobley:
Mr. Hays' Telegram
Montreal, Nov. 17, 1910.
"Fred Stork, Mayor Prince Rupert, B. C.
Am advised by our London office,
Prince Rupert is advertising in London
papers  for  $500,000  stating  that  oui
assessment is $7,300,000. Since the
amount of this assessment is to be
contested it is misleading, and unless
the advertisement is withdrawn we shall
explain ito) public the position.
Chas. M. Hays."
Acting Mayor's Reply
To  this  Acting  Mayor  Mobley  has
replied:
"Advertisement referred to was ordered withdrawn October 26."
F. H. Mobley, Acting Mayor
The telegram was received and filed.
There was no discussion regatding it
nor any comment made in council at the
time.

Rumor That Miss Le Neve Will Sell
His Confcstion to London Newspaper���Scaffold Ready for Use Tomorrow Morning-
iSpecial to thc Optimist)
London, Nov. 22.���Having heard that
Dr. Crippen had asked to see her and
been accorded permission by the authorities of the jail, Miss Le Neve repaired
to the prison last evening, thus putting
at rest the stories that she had sailed
for Montreal. She was with the condemned man for nearly two hours, and
it is now said that he made a full ctn-
fession of the murder of his wife, Bel'e
Elmore, and that the girl has sold the
story of the confession to be used by
a London newspaper immediately after
the hanging tomorrow.
The jail officials deny that Crippen
made any confession.
John Ellis, assistant executioner, raised
the gallows in the jail yard this morning
and tested the drop with a bag of sand.
The drop was found to work satisfactory
and at nine o'clock tomorrow morning
Dr. Crppen will be marched out of his
cell to meet his direful fate

had been told il was a lower rale than
Aid. Smith's lirm were paying. There
was no preference as to insurance firms,
the thing was a purely business matter.
A Difference of Opinion
It seemed to Aid. Hilditch that it
would be belter if each eontractor
looked after his own employees' liability

the blanket policy for the whole city

the question of insurance to be left to

The finance committee who have been
considering the matter recommended
that an offer of the Mack Realty company be accepted in which they agreed
to insure the city's liability as on employer of labor for 2 per cent. The idea
was to have thc contractors each take

COUNT TOLSTOI'S DEATH
All over the world there are demonstrations of sorrow at the death of the
great Russian novelist and philosopher Tolstoi. This was shown last week when
there came the premature news of his death. In London the stores began to display
public mourning; societ cancelled its engagements and wrote its condolences,
and Trades Unionists and Socialists prepared to do honor to his memory. One
can imagine, therefore, the universal tribute that is being paid today to the memory
of this remarkable character all over Europe, and by all ranks.
What Count Tolstoi's place in history will be, can only at present be guessed.
He was unlike anyone else and cannot be judged by the ordinary standards of
comparison. He was an idealist of the school he himself formed, and a notable
contributor to the literature of the world. His career was in itself entrancing,
aristocrat, a soldier in active service, then novelist, then philosopher and religious
teacher. Even in the circumstances of his death there was a gentle pathos that
is appealing.
His sudden departure in search of some place of retirement where he might
end his days in solitude, absolutely hidden from the world, was not foreign to his
character. But a man of eighty-three cannot safely go wandering about a cold
country at winter-time with an indefinite purpose, so the end of the journey was
not entirely unexpected.
Count Tolstoi was possibly more a mystery to his own family than to anyone else. His wife wished to live after the fashion of other noble and wealthy
families. He, however, was a devotee of the simple life, preferring the society of
a laborer to that of a man of letters or a woman of fashion. But even the society
of the proletariat was renounced at last, and the venerable prophet wished to
be wholly alone.
One would think it ought to have been possible for him to have, arranged a
solitude in his own home, so that he might avoid "greetings where no kindness
is, and all the dreary intercourse of daily life." But perhaps he felt that the kindly
family would always be worrying about him.
Over thirty years have passed since Count Tolstoi was "converted." People
have forgotten that he was once a soldier who saw service in the Crimea, a man
of affairs, a novelist without a purpose, a favorite in society and a wealthy land
owner.
Then came in 187*) that remarkable novel, Anna Karenine, and after that a
succession of book*' setting forth hi*, religious and social creeds and other novels
with a purpose. He renounced all financial interest in the copyrights of these
works, refused to own his states and rejected money in whatever form. For
his religious views the Greek Church of Russia excommunicated him. Our dis-
patchf. say that this same church is to give him burial with great pomp and ceremony although it has firmly refused absolution. Yet to his last breath, Tolstoi
refused to have any part or lot with the church that had worked so much of its
enmity upon him, and sought to prevent the circulation of his writings in Russia.
But he lived his own life, delivered his own n.essage, and continued to a good
old age to give his creed the sanction of his own conduct. His memory will doubtless
be much revered.

THAT GOyERNMENT SMELTER
The suggestion made in these columns some days ago that the government
might lie induced, if good and sufficient evidence were given, to place a government
experimental smelter at some point in Northern British Columbia, has found an
echo in the Nelson News, an able representative of the mining interests ol the
southern end of the province.   In the course of an article on the Bubject it says:
"For many years the Dominion government has carried on experimental
farms for the benefit of the agricultural industry; it has maintained hatcheries
for the commercial fishing industry; it has taken up forestry for the purpose of
making the mat of our timber lands. But for mining, the other great industry
engaged in the utilitation of the natural resources of the country, it has done almost
nothing in this way.
"A good deal could be done. An experimental station where new methods
cf treating ores are worked out, where problems may be solved, where the latest
results of mining experience the world over are kept track of, and where full information is given to enquirers, should prove of great value tc the mining industry
and should do much to add to the   production of wealth in the Dominion."

Charges of a most serious nature are
stated by the Victoria Colonist to be at
the bottom of the demand for the resignation of Police Constable Taylor at
Stewart.
The Colonist states:
"The immediate resignation of Provincial Police Constable Taylor, for
some time past stationed at Stewart,
has been asked for by the attorney-
general, as the result of quiet investigation on the part of the chief constable for the district, foUowing an
activity of rumors as to Constable
Taylor's abuse of his official position.
"To put the matter succinctly, the
officer was stated to have arranged
a regular schedule of fees, payable
to himself, by which immunity and
protection were to be secured by certain forces not recognized as legitimate or for the good of society. These
fees, it is declared in statements to the
investigating officer, have been both
levied and collected, from women of
the underworld, the proprietors of'
small gambling games operating in
back rooms of tobacconists' establishments, and even from messenger boys
finding their chief employment in the
restricted quarter.
These fees are stated to have
amounted in the aggregate to a con-!
siderable sum, the small gambling
operators referred to being assessed
$10 per week for police non-interference, certain women paying from $10
per month to $5 weekly, and $5 per
week being also derived from the messenger boys.
"Although there is small reason for
disbelief of the constable's cupability,
proof to sustain criminal proceedings
is regarded as being probably difficult to obtain, and hence the ending
of the incident with what is in effect'
dismissal from the disgraced service."

Council   Investigated   a   Statement
About Civic  Note-Paper
Is there any truth in the statement
that the city refused certain note-paper
bearing the Printers' Union Label? The
question was asked by Aid. Hilditch
last night. Acting Mayor Mobley referred him to Aid. Pattullo aa chairman
of the finance committee but Aid.
Pattullo had no knowledge of the matter.
He took some truoble to follow it up at
the close of the council, but could not
trace the incident. The city clerk did
not recall it.

NO REPLY AS YET
TO HAYS' LETTER
BUT  FINANCE COMMITTEE ARE
CONSIDERING IT
Thrri* May Bs Somethin*; Doing
Shortly in Regard to the Question
of the Grand Trunk Pacific Assessment.
No reply has yet been sent to President Hays' letter to the city regarding
thc G. T. P. assessment and the matter
is now in the hands of the finance committee.
The Doard of Trade, according to
Aid. Naden who introduced the subject
as unfinished business last night, does
not desire to do any more in the matter
meantime.
To leave the letter as a legacy to the
new council is an idea which does not
appeal to Aid. Hilditch. He wants it
answered by the present council.
"Our time is getting short," he said
in this connection last night.
"It sure is," muttered an onlooker.
"We ought to congratulate the Board
of Trade," said Aid. Pattullo, "on
bringing the G.T.P. and the council together." He moved that the matter be
referred to the finance committee. Aid.
Barrow seconded and the motion was
carried.
LAST HOPE OF THE LORDS
Thr*>*
Resolutions    Introduced    to
Break th* Deadlock
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Nov. 22.���Lord Lansdowne
has given notice of three resolutions
which he will introduce in the house of
lords today. Upon these is based tha
last hope of the upper chamber for a
solution of the present deadlock on the
veto bill. These resolutions will be
discussed this afternoon.

a better system. He waa quite ready,
however, to defer the adoption of his
committee's recommendation on this
point if Aid. Hilditch had any real
ground for objecting to the Arm mentioned.
Companies All Alike
Aid. Lynch approved of Aid. Pat-
tullo's views regarding the blanket
policy, and so, also, did Aid. Smith who
said that there was little to choose
between insurance companies when it
came to settling claims���they all made
difficulties as a rule.
Aid. Hilditch was of the opinion that
the average contractor, bad as he might
be, had a bigger heart than the average
corporation, and would see fair play
for a workman injured in his service,
who had difficulty with the insurance
people.
To this Aid. Pattullo replied that if
he were a laborer he would rather be
thrown upon the tender mercies of the
city council than those of a large hearted
contractor, such as say Aid. Hilditch.
Tha Scheme Want Through
The upshot of the discussion was
that the scheme was carried by a show
of hands Aldermen Mclntyre, Lynch,
Smith, and Pattullo for it and Aldermen
Barrow, Naden, and Hilditch against.
MUST USE HIS
OWN DISCRETION
CONTINUED  FHOM  PACE  1
known to the city clerk, but who prima
facie is entitled to be entered on the
voters' list should be so entered.
(c) As to the point where the city
clerk believes a man to be a non-British
subject, but has no positive evidence
to that effect, it is a matter to be remedied
by the city clerk according to any instructions received by the council. The
result would be as follows: If the clerk
refused to put the name on the list, the
person being entitled to have his name
so inserted has redress before the Court
of Revision, or if the clerk places a name
on the list which is not entitled to be
there, anyone may raise objections
before a Court of Revision and the
matter can be remedied. There is no
possible legal rule governing thia point.
It would certainly not be an offence
for the city clerk to put on the name
of a person in the absence of any evidence who is not entitled to vote, nor
would it be a legBl offence for the city
clerk to leave such a name off under the
conscientious belief that the person was
not a British subject.
The proper remedy in each case is*
before the Court of Revision.   This is
what is contemplated in Section 14, Subsection (c).    Errors are bound to be
made both ways.   All the Act purposes
to do in the matter is to provide a remedy
before the Court of Revision, the final
decision thereof to be enforced.
Yours truly,
W. E. WILLIAMS
Alderman  Hilditch's Opinion
On hearing this I tter read in council
Aid. Hilditch reque ted the city clerk
to r fer to the Municpial Clauses Act
upon this subject.   He gave it as his
opinion that the Act read more positively
than thc city solicitor's letter on the
matter in question stating definis**|y
that non-British subjects were not to be
entered on thc r 'I at al1. He said he
was not satisfied ^ith thc city solicitor's
letter.
Lesser of Two Evils
"Better  a   few   non-British  subjects
on the roll than any British subjects
kept off it," was thc opinion of Aid.
Naden.
To have the question left entirely lo
the discretion of one man did not
exactly conform to Aid. Pattullo's idea
of the proper way of entering up thc
list, yet he thought the city clerk was
perfectly right to place on the list those
citizens who were assessed for property.
Batter Err on Generous Sid*
"Suppose a few American citisens did
get on the voters' list and even vote
it would not make so very much difference," was thc opinion of Aid. Pattullo
who thought there waa far more danger
of leaving off a vote than of putting one
on.
The solicitor's letter was received and
filed.

The most interesting man in Portugal at the present moment is the new
premier, Senhor Braga, who may be
said without exaggeration to be the
father, not only of this revolution, but
of that of Brazil, having by his teaching as professor of history and philosophy prepared the ground for both
movements. He is a quiet, pleasant,
and extremely modest grey-haired man
of 67, whose unassuming manners may
be inferred from the fact that after being elected the first president of the
Portuguese republic, he returned home
as usual in a second-class compartment
to the unpretentious little house which
he occupies in the suburbs, quietly
receiving the congratulations of his
richest and humblest friends, and deprecating^- acknowledging the frantic ovations of his fellow-passengers.
A distinguished Portuguese gentleman
who sat on the same bench with Oraga
in their college days, on being asked if
the premier was not a poor man, replied:
"Braga lives in an intellectual atmosphere, lie has no wants, and therefore
is the richest of men. No one is better
fitted to occupy the position he now
holds, for his well-known probity commands universal confidence."
Premier Explain* Revolution
Senhor Braga particularly desires it
to be understood that the revolution
had no military or personal aims, but
like thou- of Brazil and Turkey, was
purely the outcome of philosophical
ideas. The Braganza dynasty had
failed to keep abreast of modern progress, antl had done nothing to render
the people master of their own destinies.
This revolution, he said, like the two
preceding ones, was based on the emancipation of the popular sentiment
and aimed at the complete realization
of civil life, untrammelled by prejudices or clerical denomination. One
means by which the late dynasty had
endeavored to maintain its position was
continually to menace the people with
British intervention in order to crush
the popular sentiment, as if the ancient alliance of the two nations were one
between thc dynasties and not between
the two peoples. He believed the British people would understand antl sympathize with their struggle in the cause
of progress.
Victor  Hugo of  Portugal
Senhnr Mngalhaes-Lima, official re|>-
resentative in France of the new republic
of Portugal, says of the Premier: "Braga is the Victor Hugo of Portugal. In
literature he stands supreme. The
more than 130 volumes he has already
published deal with nearly every great
topic of interest to us. Philosopher,
poet, romancer, hislori sn, statistician,
humanitarian, passionate Socialist, he
is a revolutionary from conviction. The
whole nation believes in his disinterestedness antl his absolute integrity,
devotion to duty and enlightened patriotism."
Always Lived Modestly
"Born in 18411, in the island of St.
Michael, one of the Azores, his childhood was one of extreme poverty.
While yet a boy he began to earn his
own living and even to help to support
his parents. His natural leaning towards letters drew him into a printing
office, and he felt himself passing rich
when taken on as a compositor.
"He has always lived modestly, economically, almost poorly, in absolute
accord with his Socialistic principles.
His whole income consists of what he
earns as a professor of sociology in
Lisbon university, that is two hundred
and forty pounds a year. Out of this
he has saved about one hundred pounds.
Never Takes Street Car
"He has never take" �� cao, but always walks.   He had always steadfastly
refused to take payment for his books,
believing in art for art's sake.
"The little flat Is now without any
other inmate, for some years ago Senhor Braga had the greatest sorrow of
his life in the loss from consumption
within a few months of each other of
his two children, Maria Grace, his
daughter, and Theophi'e, his on.y son.
"Thirty-five years ago he began his
great repub'ican campaign and de'iver-
ed in all over 2,000 'ectures in a'l parts
of the country. He is a remarkably
eloquent man with a forceful and telling
manner of speaking.
His Mother Hubbard Gingham
"One article of his personal attire
has become a byword in Portugal; it is
a rusty looking umbrella with a crook
handle, which he invariably carries
under his left arm.
"It is not too much to say that Braga had the respect, condfience and admiration of the whole of Portugal, from
the King down to the humblest cottager. Dom Carlos, though he knew���
none better���Braga's sentiments, openly showed the high opinion he held of
him, and when Braga was secretary of
the royal academy the avowed revolu-
tianry and the monarch whose son he
was able to help depose, were often seen
in amicable conversation. But Braga,
though invited, never entered the royal
palace."

"While I was engaged to her she made
me give up drinking, smoking, and golf.
Last of all, I gave up something on my
own account.'
"What was that?"
"The girl."
"Do you think airships could be used
effectively in warfare?"
"They might," replied the sceptical
person, "if we could provide the airships
and induce the enemy to go up in them."
"Do you ever try to tell people by tha
clothes they wear?"
"Occasionally. For instance, if I see a
man with a blue suit on nnd it helmet on
his head, I'm willing to bet any money
he's a policeman."
"Why are you disgusted, Dennis?"
"I just heur-rtl wan man call another a
liar. And the man that was called a liar
said the other man woultl have to apologize or there woultl be a light."
"And why should that make you look
so sad?"
"The other man apologized."
Some young children had been set at

"A mustard-plaster," answered the

Skeena   Bear   Sent   to   Englnad
The British Museum is to have
among its many wonders one of those
curious little white bears found on the
Skeena river by Mr. Kermode and
called after hint. A specimen was
taken with other British Columbia
game to Vienna by Mr. Warburlon
Pike, and as there was none like it in
the British .Museum, one was sent for
by a commissioner who visited thc
Vienna Exhibition of big game.
Seattle, Nov. 17.���Declared by United
States geological survey officials to
contain more minerals than any other
district in the world, the regions in the
vicinity of Nome, Alaska, have made a
bid for new honors in the line of mining
freaks. Joe Sliscovich, the original of
thc leading man in Rex Beach's "That
Night at Silsco's," owns a ledge in that
section that has changed its mineral
contents so often that mining experts
are at loss to know what kind of a mine
it is.
In thc five tears that he has ownetl
it   Silscovich   has   driven   a   shaft   to
the depth of 550 feet, and during this
I period   it   has   changed   its   formation
< no less than eight times, its contents
being  antimony,   antimony   and   gold,
gold and silver, silver and lead, gold,
silver   and   wolfram,   gold   silver   and
ischeclite, gold, silver and bismuth, and
then copper, gold and silver.
Geological survey officials have re-
iccived surprise after surprise during
| their work in the north, but the subject of Sliscovich's mine has put them
[ guessing. That those different minerals
should occur in the same vein is something previously unknown to them.
Sliscovich was on the verge of selling
the mine several times to different
parties, but just about thc time he was
ready to close he would strike a different
kind of ore and the negotiations were
broken. He intends to continue his
work on the ledge, and expects to get a
few more surprises before he gets through
with it.

To put in the sewers required on Eighth
and Fraser streets is to cost the sum of
$5,934.42, according to a report from
the city engineer read at last night's
council. The estimated cost of laying
house connections where there will be
embankments at the completion of
grading Section 1 is put at $6,138.80, and
the extension of the B. C. Government
sewer on Sixth street to Grenville Court
will cost $1,141.00. The total of these
sums is $13,214.92; and the whole
report after having been referred to the
finance committee, is now adopted.
Wants Plankway* Instead
Understanding that there might be
a shortage of funds for the construction
of plankways in the outlying districts
if the city embarked upon any more
extensive sewer plan meantime than the
work immediately necessary, Aid. Hilditch declared himself more in favor
of plankways in the outlying places than
sewers in Section 1.
Enough for Both
There is however, according to Aid.
Pattullo, enough money fro the plankways, only the city has to enter judiciously into negotiations for advances from
the Bank of Montreal for such purposes.
The Bank had to be satisfied regarding
the advisability of the work.
President Hays' Threat
As an instance of the difficulties
the finance committee had to meet in
conducting the financial affairs of the
city Aid. Pattullo mentioned the fact
that President Hays had thought it
necessary to wire stating that he would
make public the G. T. P. idea of their
assessment unless the city's advertisement mentioning it were withdrawn
from the London papers. The sole
reason for mentioning the amount of
the G. T. P. assessment, said Aid.
Pattullo was to let those interested know
how much of the city's assessment was
G. T. P. and how much was not.
This was the only comment made
regarding C. M. Hays' telegram last
night.

and several leaders in commerce and in
other walks of life. Hitherto they had
been able to meet and make the acquaintance of but few of them. Therefore he considered a Canadian Club for
Prince Rupert most deisrable.
Rev. H. \V. Kerr expressed his pleasure
at meeting such a number of citizens
who were in favor of forming a Canadian
Club.
Colonel Davis, city engineer, described
the working f such clubs at some
length, and said a strong feature of
them was the business manner in which
they were managed. The first thing to
do was to get a big string of distinguished
names and subjects for each speaker, a
subject in each case upon which the
speaker chosen was especially fitted to
address them. The entertainment was
invariably a luncheon, which took place
in the day at about the same time the
business man was going to his own
luncheon and therefore did not consume
any valuable time. The cost was
practically nil. The annual subscription was one dollar nd the subscription
to each luncheon fifty cents. He thought
we were in a position to have one of
the best Canadian clubs in the Dominion,
for the reason that we had so many
distinguished visitors.
Officers Were Elected
William Manson, M. P. P., agreed that
such an organization was necessary for
the city. He moved that the organization of the Prince Rupert Canadian
Club be proceeded with.
At Dr. Clayton's suggestion the chairman appointed a nominating committee,
appointing Messrs. Peck, Kerr, Davis
and Tremayne. These gentlemen retired for a few moments and returned
with the following list:
President Judge Young, Vice-president Bishop Du Vernet, Second Vice-
president William Manson, M. P. P.,
Secretary Dr. Clayton, Treasurer H. F.

Now that the so-called temperance
people have at last succeeded in submitting the question of license or prohibition to the people of Prince Rupert
it might be well to look a little more
closely into this whole matter of prohibition. There is no doubt that the
men who drink to excess in Prince
Rupert constitute a very small minority
of those who usp liquors, and it seems
rather unfair to penalize ninty-nine
in a hundred because one man is a beast.
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 become so long as the diunkards stay at
home and do not let us see them.
Is t here not something in human nature
that rebels at all attempts to impose
restrictions of a personal nature by force
of law. The old "Blue Laws" of Massachusetts provided a severe penalty
for any woman who appeared in public
in a low-necked dress and it doea not
require a very great stretch of the
imagination to think that women were
tempted by this law into wearing one
of these dresses who otherwise would
not think of putting one on. You can
see them meeting behind locked doors
with guards posted and wearing dresses
which went to the extreme in this
respect with unholy glee.
History tells us that tobacco got ita
first hold in England on account of the
heavy penalties proscribed agaiast it
on its first introduction. And so it
goes. There is something in the human
race that rebels against arbitrary restrictions of any kind, and the same
thing has even been noticed in the
animal kingdom.
There is  a well-authenticated  story
! of an old farmer in the East who had a
| lot of buckwheat straw which he wanted
; to feed to his cattle.   He tried every
devise and  mixed  the straw  with  all
kinds of food his cattle relished but it
'��� was no use.    They would simply eat
the other food and leave the straw.
At last in desparation he built a low
] fence around the pile of straw and whenever he saw the cattle near it he set the
dogs on them.   The result was that the
cattle broke through the fence at every
opportunity and cleaned up the whole
I pile.    Does anyone think that locking
a thing  up or  making it difficult to
obtain is a good way to stop the desire
> for it, or that a boy brought up in a
town  where  he does not  know  what
I temptation jb is as well lilted for life
1 as the one who knows what evil is and
i has learned to shun it.   An instance of
j this is found in the fact that preacher's
sons the world over are notorious for
wildni'ss.     They   get  so  sick   of   the
j restrictions imposed on them at home
! that they go to extremes as soon as they
feel themselves at liberty and they have
no experience  to  guide them.    They
have been so carefully kept from the
knowledge  of  evil   that  they  do  not
recognize it when they meet it.
The writer is not one of those who
believe that the will of a majority should
always rule. There are certain things
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 over been made to interfere
with a man's liberty of not drinking.
Why then should those who think the
use" of liquor detrimental to them not
