Riots in Ireland
The Irish election have been marked
the usual shillegah exercises. A
rious disturbance took place at Thurles
ere Mr. John Dillon delivered an
dress.    The  people  became  so   in
censed at this gentleman's attitude in
regard to the Home Rule question that
they chased him from the building and
he had to seek refuge in a friendly
section of the crowd where he could not
be observed. The police were pressed
into service to protect Mr. Dillon and
as a result of their interference many
skulls were sorely cracked.
Tim Healy Defeated
One of the sensations of the Irish
elections has been the defeat of Mr.
T. Healy, another of the independent
Irishmen who declined to submit to
the dictates of Mr. John Redmond. M r
Healy is said to have instituted proceedings against his opponents for
illegal practices which he alleges brought
about his defeat.

PRINCE   RUPERT'S   SEA   TRADE
INCREASES
Bright Accounts of Progress In Report for 1910 by President of Board
of Trad*. Election of Officers for
1911.
Figures quoted by the President of
the Board of Trade show that Prince
Rupert's growth in trade by sea is
remarkable. Prom 600 tons in 1907 to
12,640 tons in 1908 is a big leap, but
the next year 1909, shows 29,600 tons
and for the past eleven months of 1910
the tonnage of cargo landed is 62,834.
Before the incorporation of the city
the work of the Board of Trade has been
valuable in conserving for the citizens
the telephone and light franchise, and
its energies were also directed towards
the securing of the city's water supply
from Woodworth Lake. Since the incorporation, the attention of the Board
of Trade has been directed to the trade
of Northern B. C. generally, and the
PARTIES JOIN ISSUE IN
SCOTT ACT CAMPAIGN
Large Crowd Attends Joint Debate in Mclntyre Hall���-
Dr. Spencer Present But Does Not Take
Part���Feeling  Speeches
on Both Sides
"A man convinced against his will is
of the same opinion still," hence the
futility of debate. Just how many
converts were made to either cause at
the Scott Act debate held last night
in the Mclntyre Hall it is impossible
to say but it is a safe bet that the number was negligable. There was so much
to be said for and against by both sides
and in some instances the issues were so
delicate and subtle that preconception
seemed the safest pathway to wisdom.
For the purposes of the debate there
were four speakers, two for and two
against, so that for the nonce the Scott
Act was literally turned into a football.
Large Crowd Present
The meeting attracted a large crowd
Thc speakers were divided as follows:
for the adoption of the Scott Act Mr.
W. J. Faris, Vancouver, and the Rev.
Mr. Kerr; against the Scott Act Dr.
Mclntyre and Mr. William Blakemore.
Dr. Spencer was also in the hall bat
he did not take part in the debate-
Magistrate Carss who acted as chairman
indicated in specific terms that he waa
merely there as a mediator and not
necessarily identified with either party.
As the meeting was being held under
the auspices of the opponents of the Act
the strategic courtesy of allowing the
other party to lead off was extended. Ia
this way Mr Blakemore swept in at
the finish and with lawyer-like acumen
devoted himself to the task of tearing

I1NE EXPLOSION
KILLS TEN MEN
CTY WERE ENTOMBED AT FER-
NIE LAST NIGHT
the Victims Were  Italians  and
Slavs.    Terrible Scenes Witneaaed
[at  Pit Head While Rescue Work
[Wat in Progress.
(Special to the Optimist)
Calgary, Dec. 10.���As a result of an
"���plosion in the Bellevue Mine at Fernie
st night ten men were killed. Immediately the alarm was raised and the
lit head became one of those terrible
penes only associable with such dis-
|Bters. Men and women crowded to-
ether and would not leave the place
H'hili' the rescue work was in operation,
id many trying incidents were witnessed. The rescue work proved to
the most difficult as the shaft was
blocked by the fall of earth.
Early this morning the first batch of
lhe rescuers reached the strata on which
the explosion had occurred and were
disappointed to find that ten men or
nore who were there had succumbed
f'i the obnoxious gas prevailing. On
proceeding with the work twenty more
nen were found in more or less precarious conditions and were brought to
the surface in an unconscious state.
The latest report says that the sixty
entombed men have been recovered
land that no more deaths have been
���recorded. The men who were killed
Iwere all Italians, and Slavs, who went
I to that part of the country some time
I ago. The explosion is regarded as
j the worst that has happened in the
district for some years.
PROHIBITION v. HIGH LICENCE-A CONTRAST
I
Thejgeneral superintendent of
the Anti-Saloon League (the chief
prohibition organization of the
United States) asserts in his recent annual report that 41,000,000
of the people in the United States
are now living in prohibition territory. With the exception of
Maine and Kansas which have a
population of less than two and a
half millions practically all alleged
"prohibition territory" has been
gained during the past ten years
In this period, the consumption
of alcoholic beverages has increased about twenty-five per
cent faster than the totnl population! It i lis' light of these facts
it is pertinent to ask, who, what
and where does prohibition pro-
liibi , and by what practical
results can prohibition be justified?
It is significant to note that *��n
1900 there were 189,089 "retail
liquor dealers" who paid the
s-secial tax of $26 to the federal
government. In 1910 their number was 202,687 an increase of
13,698 or 7.2 per cent. Is this
mi spite or because of prohibition?
On the other hand note the
manner in which the new Provincial Liquor Act has been
enforced. In the short space of
four months there have been
more than 20 convictions for
breaches of the Act and what is
still more significant 74 cancellations or refusals of licences
mostly "In the public interest."
This is real enforcement both in
the letter and the spirit of the Act.
Among newspaper comments
from every part of thc Province
the following from the "Slocan
Record" is a fair sample and govs
to the root of the matter:
"It is over a month since the
new License Act went into force.
So far it has been observed, and
is apparently working satisfactorily to all parties. It is probably
the neareet approach to Temperance Legielation that haa
yet been paaaed in Canada.
In not only restrains the unscrupulous vendors of intoxicants,
but also those who indulge to
excess. Its enforcement is in
the hands of men who are paid
to do the work, and do it. British
Columbia haa been the first to
pass an Act that really controls
the "uae an'rl abuse" of intoxicants, for it regulates the sale,
and protects the home. No
doubt in time other Provinces in
Canada will pass similar legislation
to replace the present frenzied and
intemperate laws."

Perkins Retires
New York, Dec. 10.���(Special)���Geo.
W. Perkins today announced his intention of retiring from the Morgan
Perkins organization. The object for

system which he has invented to do
away with capital and labor troubles.

Rome, Dec. 10.���When King Manuel
hurriedly left his regal domain in Portugal it was not anticipated thut be
would become a beggar. Yet it would
appear that he has done so.
An exiled royalist in this city says
that the king is in such abject poverty
that he cannot even keep a roof over
his head, and has to rely (or sustenance

Orleans at Wood Norton, England. His
own personal servants are said to be
months in arrears with their salaraiea.

- THE COSY CORNER -
L
DEVOTED  PRINCIPALLY TO THE INTERESTS  OF  WOMEN
ssssaSsaSBSSSaaSSSJas m..i mt%^mV^mmmWmtmmm*mii m jsassaasaa sss^n.   nsn n
This is a little section of the paper, which from day to day will be devoted
to subjects of special interest to women. Any and all of the ladies of Prince Rupert
are invited to contribute to iu columns, and to take part in its discussions. Suggestions and criticisms are invited by the editor. The hops is expressed that "The
Cosy Corner" will fill a social need.
Brains and Beauty
The subject is not new, but it possesses
an unusual interest at the present
moment, when the preponderance of
women's brains makes an uncomfortable
cog in the wheel of politics. It is pleasant
to see "Truth" dashing wildly into the
feminine fray with the declaration that
brains and beauty are incompatible
Any why? "Brains," says "Truth,"
"mould beauty into strength," the
inference being that when strength
comes along beauty is blotted out.
Surely a most untenable argument. The
writer of the article seems to feel so,
for the ghost of Madame Recamier
comes to haunt him. "Had I not beauty
and brains?" she akss. But "Truth"
sticks to its guns: "Beauty? Yes,
Madame. Brains? No! You were
merely a good listener." The writer is
evidently a man, and his contentions
make a further proof that there is a new
standard of womanly beauty badly
wanted.
Men seem unable to get away from
the early Victorian pictures of simpering prettiness. But even if we
take the present masculine idea of
woman's beauty, is it true that there
is such a disproportion between brains
and beauty? Is it not rather the proportion of brains to the mass of women
is so small? The brainy girl stands out
from her fellows, and if she be not
gifted with good looks it is manifest to
all. Were an average of the beauties
among all the clever women who have
ever lived taken, it is doubtful if it
would fall far short of that granted to
the general herd.
Women and Marriage
Mrs. Gertrude Atherton is always
daringly interesting when she discourses
on women and marriage. Here - are
some of her epigrammatic sentences
culled from her essay on "Ancestors:"
Any woman can marry any man she
wants.
We have fevers for them that last a
few weeks, and then we become maternal and endure them. We women
never love men as we imagine that we
could love.
Conquests pall on a woman in seven
years. In time other things also cease
to satisfy���books, and dreams, and
sunset, and liberty. When this finish's
she will suddenly demand happiness���the
real thing.   Then she will love.
When clever women realize that they
are a sex apart, and wait until their
first youih at least is over before selecting a companion among men, t en
will the world have taken its first step
towards real happiness.
First love is merely a sort of curtain-
raiser. In marriage it may develop into
something worth while, but in itself
amounts to nothing���except as material
for poets.
There is a sort of highly bred woman
who has all the secret fear and antagonism of her sex for the other, a profound resentment of the male instinct
for possession, and the deeper terror
that what the man may find will make
her wholly his.
Life is packed with little un eard-of
dramas of the eternal duet of sex; nothing else keeps it going.
A woman incapable of passion is
neither more nor less than a failure.
From the beginning of time the misery of the world has been caused by the
superstition that love was all.
Love is the furious determination of
the sex to persist.
Real happiness may lie in forgetting
that love is selfish.
If one can be happy without love, why
run the risk?
Free love and experimental matrimony are mere excuses for a sort of
sensuality that is shallow and inconstant.
A woman in love is eagerly psychological; she longs to discover once for all
her sex and herself.
It is not possible for a woman to
define one man's fascination to another
man.
To be married and have ten children
has kept more women up to the correct
standard than anything else, except
poverty.
Women invariably substitute the word
"misunderstood" for failure to accept
their point of view.

The Rain Complexion Cure
There are two beautiful women, well
known in Irish society (says a lady
writer in the Pall Mall Gazette), who
frankly declares "the rain cure" to be
the sole cause of their exquisite skins
being always in perfect condition. Every
woman can take the rain cure if she
wills. Put on a pah* of strong shoes, a
waterproof, a simple tweed hat, but no
veil, and let the fresh soft water reach
the skin. Then, on conimg in, rub
briskly with a soft towel, sit down in a
warm but not heated room, and rest all
the facial muscles, and you will be
astonished at the result. Of course
damp clothing will have been removed
previous to this.
TWO TIMELY RECIPES
Wedding or Fruit Cake
One pound raisins, one pund currants,
washed and dried, one-half pound citron,
one pound sugar, one pound flour,
almost one pound of butter, nine eggs
beaten separately, two teaspoonfuls of
vanilla, and a little lemon peel if you
like. Also three-fourths pound English
walnuts. Sprinkle the raisins and
currants with flour. Cream together
butter and sugar, and add well-beaten
yolks of eggs. Then add alternately
flour, fruit, and nuts. Stir the mixture
well, than add vanilla and white Of eggs
beaten stiff.   Bake in slow oven.
Plum Pudding
One pound suet, one pound flour
(browned), nine eggs, half nutmeg (grated), same quantity cinnamon, ginger, a
pinch of salt; mix all together, then add
one pound currants, one pound raisins
(stoned and chopped a little), four
ounces mixed peel, four ounces sweet
almonds (blanched and cut in bits), two
ounces sugar, one wineglass brandy, and,
if   too   stiff,   add   more brandy.
Just the Usual
Only one case came up before the
Magistrate in the police court this
morning. Dan Crosby pled guilty to
the charge of having been drunk and
was fined five dollars and costs or ten
days.
Successful Dance
Another successful dance was conducted last night in the K. of P. hall by
Professor Kauffmann. These Thursday
evening dances have become quite well
established.

" ' ** THE   PRINCE   RUPERT    OPTIMIST
'he Grand Trunk Pacific Offers FOR SALE its Splendidly Located Lots in the Townsite of
I    MELVILLE, the WONDERFUL
Melville's Astonishing Growth
Three years ago Melville had but one building-
to-day it has over 500 buildings and this number is constantly being added* to. The assessed value of Melville real estate in 1909 was $521,360. The assessed
value of Melville real estate in 1910 was $1,782,000, an
increase during the past year of 350 per cent. The
same forces which have caused this rapid increase in
the population and realty values arc still operative,
but their interest is cumulative, and the proportionate
rate of growth in population and advance in values
should increase from month to month.
Every day the traffic on the main line of the G.T.P.
is increasing, and with every increase comes an addi
tion to the force of railroad employees, making Melville their homes and headquarters. With every additional mile of steel laid on the Hudson Bay, the Regina, Lethbridge and International Boundary branch
lines, Melville s trade territory ia increased.
A population of 10,000 for Melville will mean an
increase manyfold in the value of real estate in all
parts of the town, based upon present values. If real
estate has advanced in some instances 500 to 1,000 per
cent, in two years, during which time the population
was increasing from 625 to 2000, it is reasonable to expect a much larger proportion of increase in values
while the town is advancing from 2,000 to 10,000.
Melville Haa No Near Competitors
Melville's future as a commercial centre is as assured as are ita transportation advantages. It has no
dangerous competitors within striking distance. In a
commercial sense it is strategically located-a point
the Grand Trunk doubtless had in mind when selecting
it aa one of the ehief divisional points on their system.
It is 297 miles from Winnipeg, nearly 100 from Regina,
Advance in Values at Melville
Melville lots which originally sold at $75 to $100 a
lot, are now being sold as high as $500 a lot. The site
of the Municipal Rink was purchased originally for
$225, and a year ago was sold to the city for $1,250.
Two other lots sold originally at $100 and $160 respectively. J. Rowan bought the two lots later for $1,200,
and sold one for $1,200 and the other for $1,500. Two
other lots, which were originally bought for $350, were
recently tendered to the city as the site for a town
hall at $2,000 each.
A special correspondent of the Winnipeg Free
PreBs writes of Melville real estate values as follows:
"In the central business sections lots averag? from
$800 to $2,600, whilst upon the Main Street properties,
between Second and Third Avenues, the sales have
averaged $100 per foot. Prices of lots in the residential quarter average from $75 to $500 a lot. Recently
a corner site, comprising six lots on Main Street, was
offered to the town council for the new town hall,
at the actual market value of $16,000. Last year a
large number of business premises and residences were
erected, which, according to official statistics approximated $300,000. Judging from the rate of building activity which now obtains, these figures will not be lessened this year."
almost 200 from Saskatoon, and over 160 from Brandon. These are the cities with which it must compete,
and the distance from each is such as to permit Mel-
villa to expand and grow in friendly rivalry, and with
even greater speed. To the north lies a vast territory
as yet commercially undeveloped, but which will be
opened up by the building of the Hudson Bay Railway.
Melville is ready to take immediate advantage of this
development, and ia of all other cities of Western Can-
Buy Direct from Grand Trunk Pacific
The rapid increase in population of Western Canada towns has made fortunes for thousands of investor? who had the foresight to discern the possibilities
for profitable investments and the courage to back
their judgment. You cannot make a mistake in buying lots in a divisional point city. The railroad makes
the city and, in the case of Melville, no new city along
the line of the G.T. P. between Winnipeg and Edmonton is likely to grow more rapidly.
The Grand Tru' Jacific does not plat into town-
sites land located in swamps or so far away from the
city proper as to make the lots of questionable value.
The purpose of the Grand Trunk Pacific in selling these
lots is to encourage the upbuilding of Melville, from
which the Grand Trunk Pacific will receive more benefit than from the amount of money secured from the
sale of the lots. It is for this reason that the Grand
Trunk Pacific is offering lots in this townsite at such a
low price and on such easy terms. No interest is
charged on deferred payments, and when the final payment is made the purchaser can rest easy in the knowledge that he will receive perfect title to his lots and
that they will be located exactly as represented.
ada the one best qualified by geographical position to
do so. The fact that it is sitting right at the gates of
this coming business ia one that is already recognized
by wholesale and "distributing firms. Manufacturers
and distributors will here erect branch houses as they
have done at Regina and Saekatoon. and this will involve not only large building expenditures and monthly pay-rolls, but also increased population and local
business af a permanent and highly desirable character.
An Important Grand Trunk Pacific Divisional Point  The Largest New town on the G.T.P. Between Winnipeg and Edmonton
Mel 'ille's Excellent Strategic Position    Melville as a Manufacturing Centre
But few towns in Western Canada can approach
Melville in the matter of transportation facilities. It
is both a divisional and junction point on the greatest
transcontinental railway on the American continent���
The Grand Trunk Pacific. The ardently desired Hudson Bay Railway, the dream of the prairie pioneer, is
now in process of construction, ana is already completed from Melville to Canora. and the trains are running between these points. This road will bring past
the doors of Melville the bulk of the grain crop of
Western Canada, and make it one of the great traffic
centres of the country. Another branch line is now
being constructed from Melville to Lethbridge, by way
of Regina*. from which point another branch line is being constructed to the International Boundary. When
completed thia line will give Melville transportation
facilities to all points in the United States. This road
is already completed from Melville to Balcarres, and
trains are now operating ."between these points. The
main line of the G. T. P. from Melville will afford five
water outlets, namely, Prince Rupert, B.C., on the
Pacific Ocean, Halifax, N.S., on the Atlantic Ocean.
St. John, N.B., on Newfoundland Bay, Fort Churchill,
on Hudson Bay, and Fort William and Port Arthur, on
Lake Superior.
Melville haa many unquestionable points of superiority over other Canadian towns in the matter of
transportation facilities. It resembles Chicago in
"sitting at the gates of trade." Thaijunction point of
railways so important as the Grand Trunk Pacific and
Hudson Bay Railway must, in the natural course of
���vents, become an important city.
We Select Your Lots
The building of the railway from Melville to Hudson Bay will extend over a period of at least three or
four years. During this time we believe Melville will
be the beat known Grand Trunk Pacific division point
between Winnipeg and Edmonton. This will necessarily create a great deal of activity in Melville real estate, and this will redound to the benefit of the owner
of Melville loU.
In order to secure well located lots, it is not necessary that you specify the lot and block number. All
the loU in this Grand Trunk Pacific townsite are practically level prairie land.   The Grand Trunk Pacific
It is inevitable that Melville must become a jobbing centre of much importance. Already several big
concerns have made it a distributing point for their
goods, others are seeking locations there for branch
nouses. Two big implement concerns, two brewing
companies and one oil company now use Melville as a
distributing point, and another oil company has established a branch at Melville and is negotiating for a
tract of land near the railroad.
The lead taken by these institutions is about to be
followed by others of similar importance, and in a
short time the railway yards will be hedged in by
warehouses and mercantile establishments.
As a distributing point, Melville has strategic advantages which wholesalers will not overlook. It will
command a large part of the jobbing trade for a considerable distance up and down the main line of the
Grand Trunk Pacific and the two Important branch
lines which centre there. Its shipping facilities make
it an especially advantageous location for manufactories. The completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific branch
line westward to Lethbridge will give Melville direct
connection with the coalfields of Southern Alberta and
provide one of the main requisites for a manufacturing
centre���cheap fuel.
Backed by a rich agricultural district, an important railroad centre, a distributing centre and a manufacturing centre, Melville cannot help continuing to
grow rapidly, and continued growth means continued
increase in real estate values and big profits for those
who invest in real estate there at present prices. Today it the time to buy lots in Melville.

Why MelvUle LoU Will licreise a YiIm
A few years ago what are now the important cities of Western Canada were no larger than Melville is
to-day, and probably had no advantages that Melville
does not have. It is usually safe to judge the future
by the past Fortunes were made by the early investors in lots in Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Moose Jaw,
Saskatoon, Lethbridge and Prince Albert. Almost innumerable instances might be cited where lots located
in these cities were offered to and refused by investors
at from $100 to $300 a lot. These same lots, in some
instances, are now worth upwards of $25,000, but the
opportunity to reap the large profits that were made
by the early investors in these cities, at ground floor
prices, is gone forever.
History repeats itself. The profits that have been
made by far-sighted investors in real estate in the
growing cities of Western Canada will be repeated in
Melville. But these profits will be made by those who
have confidence ii the future of Western Canada and
invest in well located lots at present low prices -not
by those who delay from day to day until this opportunity is gone also.
The Grand Trunk Pacific offers, in its splendidly
located lots in the townsite of Melville, an opportunity
, to the investor to share in the large profits that will
accrue to him as the result of the rapid growth of the
town. When Melville lots have doubled, trebled and
quadrupled in value it will be poor consolation for you
to look back and remember that you had an opportunity to share in the profits but did not take advantage
of it. Now is the time to buy���the prices for choice lots
are extremely low and the possibilities for profit practically unlimited.
sire us to reserve for you and the price you wish to
pay. Then forward your remittance direct to the Land
Commissioner of the Grand Trunk Pacific.
If selection of lots made by our representative is
not satisfactory the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company agree at any time within 30 days from date of
purchase, to give the purchaser his choice of lots remaining unsold, at the same price, or refund all money
paid.
All telegraphic reservations and correspondence
should be sent to International Securities Co., Somerset Hldg., Winnipeg, Man., and it is important that
Melville be mentioned in such telegrams and letters.

THE CHALLENGE TO MR. MANSON
What the public thinks of Mr. Manson's excuse for not stating where he���
a candidate for the chief magistracy of the city���stands on the temperance issue,
was clearly indicated in the overflowing public meeting at Mclntyre Hall last night.
A reference by one of the speakers to the desirability of both Mayoral candidates stating where they stand on the temperance issue was taken up and loudly
applauded by both parties. Had Mr. Manson been on the platform, he would
certainly have been called upon by the audience to define his position. Was it
the fear of such a happening that made him at the eleventh hour withdraw from
his promise to preside at the meeting?  Those who know him best think so.
No one can accuse the Empire of being unfriendly to Mr. Manson. The
gentleman who is responsible for its editorial utterances, is personally acquainted
with the candidate. He probably knows as well as any man in Pr'nce Rupert
the two-faced game that Mr. Manson is accused of playing. And because of this
intimate knowledge of the putty-like nature of the candidate, and the way in which
he is trying to deceive both the temperance party and the licensed interests its
utterances upon this pofnt carry weight.
A few months ago, when Mr. Manson made a previous unsuccessful attempt
to become Mayor of Prince Rupert the Empire unmasked him in the following
words:
"He seemB also to be much of a diplomat, in aimimg to satisfy the temperance sentiment by dangling dry town principles, without having moved
his little finger in the House to make these principles possible, while on the
other hand he sees visions of being able to drive the liquor interests under
his guardian angelship, through the threat of their being unable to secure a
license, unless the applicants fall down and worship the golden image."
Mr. Manson's declaration that his personal convictions on the temperance
iiasup are of no concern to the public has opened the eyes of both parties to the
truth of the Empire's statements. That a candidate for public office confronted
by such a charge could make such a statement, marks his unfitness for serious
consideration by the electors.
For ourselves, we do not care which side Mr. Manson espouses. We are chiefly
anxious to find out if the candidate has any opinions at all, and especially to find
oat if the accusation is true that Mr. Manson has given pledges to both sides.
Our offer to Mr. Manson to use ��ur columns, and meet the statement over
his own signature still stands.   The public is awaiting a reply to that challenge.

CLERGYMAN ON PROHIBITION
POWER STATION PROGRESS
, following Is published by the Preaa Corn-
sol the opponents of the Scott Act, and Is
,. expression of 'the views of this paper.)
(From "The Week," Victoria)
The Week has devoted a good deal of
ce in the past to a discussion of Pro-
jtion in general, the "Scott Act" in
ticular,  and  the recent   Provincial
���uor License Legislation,  commonly
��wn as the "Bowser" Act.   The Week
written out of a pretty wide ex-
lence, including four years personal
{wlodge of the working of the "Scott"
in Nova Scotia.   Generally speaking
fhibitive  Legislation  of  every  kind
i been a failure, and the "Scott" Act a
re conspicuous failure than any other
dismissal with a severe reprimand and
caution. For not strictly enforcing the
law by inflicting the prescribed penalty
the commission exercised by this Justice
of the Peace was withdrawn.
'he absolute failure of Prohibition in
United States, in which it was first
d, was clearly  demonstrated in  a
liant article printed in Pearson's Mag-
ie of August, 1909, and re-printed in
I Week.   This article was from the
i of a well-known divine; a clergyman
|he Episcopal church, the Rev. William
'asson, who showed that Prohibition
it be condemned not only because it
failed to accomplish any good but
iuse it is, itself, the source    of any
il and polittical evils.    These evil
-riofly summarized as follows:
Prohibitory Legislation has never
succeeded in abolishing, but it has
degraded and demoralized the traffic
by driving it into secret places.
Prohibition discourages decent, honourable men from engaging in the
business, and thus throws it into
the hands of the most unscrupulous
and irresponsible men in the community. > ? t5JBB
Prohibition has a bad effect on the
drinker, tending to discourage the
use of the lighter alcoholic beverages
and to encourage the excessive use
of the st minor liquors.
Prohibition creates widespread and
habitual law-breaking, and a gen|
eral spirit of lawlessness.
So excellent <s this piece of legislation
that the Ontario Government has been
petitioned to adopt it. Now, what
puzzles The Week is this: If Dr. Spencer
and his allies are sincerely desirous of
minimizing the evils of the Drink Traffic
and improving the social conditions of
the people, why are they seeking to
arrest the operation of the Act, which by
universal consent is achieving wonders
in this direction, and to invoke the aid
of one which has been discredited wherever it has been tried?
The world cares little for the particular
organization or society which promotes
reform; it cares for the reform itself, and
that the Bowser Act is a reform measure
of the most far-reaching influence and
effect cannot be disputed. It is not a
little singular that the two districts
chosen by Dr. Spencer to test the
question should be so wide apart and so
diverse in character as are Chilliwack
and Prince Rupert. But Dr. Spencer
gives his own explanation of this in an
interview accorded to the Vancouver
Press.
The "Scott" Act is supposed to be a
pre scientific instrument than the
int, prohibitive legislation of the
ttited States. It has been dignified
ii!; the title of "The Canada Temper-
Ice" Act. It was first tried in Ontario
ore than twenty years ago, it was tried
| many counties, but in a very few years
was abandoned by all and voted a
Dure.    It  was  for  a long  term  in
oration in Nova Scotia, but ne er had
ie slightest effect in promo ing tem-
iran e. It did, to the knowledge of the
riter create innumerable "blind pigs"
id a general condition of lawlessness
hich made certain sections of the
laritime Provinces a by-word through-
iit the Dominion. One latge mining
irporation spent $12,000 in the cn-
eavor to have the Act enforced for the
rotprtion of their workmen, and aban-
tmed the effort in disgust without
aving succeeded in securing a single
onviction.
This is the precious Act, with its up-
Jo-date amendments, which Dr. Spencer
in.i his allies are endeavoring to foist on
iritish Columbia. They are doing it in
'iolation of all the recognised ethics of
ml'lis- life, after accepting the plebiscite
ilTi-rod by the McBride Government and
< ������ nn the eiectors that it was giving a
isir chance to express their views on the
lubject of local option. They are doing
It in the face of the successful operation
of the most drastic and far-reaching Tem-
**rance Legislation which has ever been
enacted; a measure so admirable in its
���cope and so effective in its administration that in the short space of six months
Its enforcement has resulted in twenty-
one convictions which reports up to
November, in fines aggregating $2,670 in
the closing up of numberless "blind pigs"
and a general regulation of the Liquor
Traffic such as no other province in the
Dominion can boast of. Two were con-
y.-'tecl and sentenced to one year's
'mprisonment. At Lillooet a charge of
����le during prohibited hours being sustained, the presiding justice ordered a
He says, in effect, that they were
chosen because Chilliwack was about the
best and Prince Rupert about the worst
place in British Columbia. This is a
doubtful compliment in either case, for,
if Chilliwack was doing so well under the
Bowser Act, why not let well alone?
and as to Prince Rupert, it remains to
be seen whether the residents of that
splendid pioneer burg in the West will
quietly accept the label, and tamely
follow at the heels of their traducer.
The Week is greatly deceived if they do
not possess more spirit. In the main
they are men who have made a name for
themselves in other parts of the province
and Dominion and will hardly submit
without resentment to the imputation.
City Light Plant Being Pushed on A*
Fast As Possible
A visit to the site of the new city
electric light plant the other day showed
that substantial progress is being made
there in spite of adverse criticism. The
framing of the power house is rapidly
proceeding, and tho care taken to have
a well built structure on a solid foundation will repay the city. Most of the
machinery is now on thc ground and will
be fitted as soon as the roof goes on the
power house.
Only the cross arms are required to
complete thc pole line which is erected
now through the business section in
the lanes. Light cannot be turned on
by Xmas, but before the new year is a
week old the juice may bo expected
confidently.
BUILDING PERMITS
About  $4000  Worth  of  Work  Contemplated
If the Bowser Act had already proved
a failure, or was giving any evidence of
such a likelihood there would be reasonable ground for looking in some other
direction for regulation of the Liquor
Traffic, but never in the direction of the
Scott Act. No one knows better than
Dr. Spencer that the only consistent
Prohibition would be the prohibition of
manufacturing. It is as inconsistent and
illogical as it is impossible to prevent the
sale. Until Dr. Spencer and those who
act with him are prepared to make this
issue the inconsistency of their own
conduct disentitles them to public
support.
Meanwhile, The Week would respectfully remind Dr. Spencer that it is
nearly a year and a half since he undertook in writing to reply to the Rev. W.
A. Wasson's article, through the pages of
The Week; although urged to keep his
promise he has failed to do so; and
finally tried to shuffle the responsibility
onto the shoulders of a brother minister
in Nanaimo, who also failed to come to
the scratch. As the Reverend Dr.
Wesson's article is the ablest and the
most effective deliverance on the subject, one would think that it would fall
within the duties of a paid secretary and
organizer of a Temperance Movement to
combat its damaging statements. Failure to do so will hardly strengthen
public confidence.

a small party of friends who had done
much to ensure the success of the Citadels

Lieutenant Wright as cooks is widespread in the Klondyke, and last night's

REVISION OF VOTERS' LIST
Court  Slta  For   First  Time  Today
This morning the Court of Revision
Bat to consider the municipal voters'
list. No objectors appeared but W. E.
Fisher brought forward the contention
that the "Complete Revised List" should
have been posted, instead of the typewritten list exposed by the City Clerk
at the City Hall. He suggested that the
Court should adjourn for a few days
to give the public time to conrder their
objections and allegations.
Aid. Mobley said that the list was
put there simply for the convenience
of the public, and was complete as far
as the City Clerk was concerned. A
"revised" list could hardly be cxhsbited
before the Court of Revision had sat.
That the Court was not a one day
affair to close the list finally after one
sitting was pointed out by Mayor
Stork, and it was agreed that the list
shall stand as exhibited until objections
are lodged for the Court to consider.
On Monday at 4 p.m. the court will
meet again.

Kansas   City   Star   on   the   Kansas
Prohibition  Law
By far the most influential newspaper
published in Missouri is the Kansas
City Star. It is absolutely independent
in politics and everything else. It has
the largest circulation west of Chicago
und what the Star says editorially is
looked upon as the next thing to gospel
truth by hundreds of thousands ot
roadcrs. Thc Star has taken cognizance
of the falsehoods directed against prohibition in Kansas by the "wet" fanatics
of St. Louis. These false hoods are so
nl variance with the truth that they are
laughed at by the intelligent people of
Missouri and thc surrounding states, and
yet the brewery gung continues to
circulate them in the hope they will
delude the unthinking.
Thc Kansas City Star is published
near the Kansas border. It knows the
conditions in that state. The Star
would not lie about these conditions
and those who know the paper believe
its utterances. Concerning the falsehoods circulated about Kansas by the
brewers of Missouri, the Star says:
"Thc brewers will gain nothing for
their cause in Missouri by the publication of lies about Kansas. No other
class of men or of business interests-
no other than the liquor interests, with
their proverbial talent for doing exactly the wrong thing at the right time
would think of appesling to the intelligence of the voters of a state by thc
proclammatiois of statements that everybody who knows knows to be untrue.
"Whatever argument may bc urged
against the feasibility of prohibition in
Missouri it cannot be affirmed by misrepresenting the facts as to prohibition
in Kansas, because prohibition is an
unqualified success in Kansas. A visit
to any city anwhere in the state will
offer a convincing demonstration of
that fact.
"It is significant as emphasizing the
attempt of the brewers to deliberately
misrepresent tbe truth that they are
circulating their falsehoods in St. Louis
and the eastern part of Missouri, where
the people are not so familiar with the
conditions in Kansas as are the people
in Kansas City.   In Kansas City they
are not using the argument that prohibition is a failure in Kansas because
Kansas City, right at the door of Kansas,
with a considerable share of its own
population in that stale, is in thc position
to know, and is thoroughly aware of the
signal success of the Kansas method of
regulating the whiskey traffic.
"Kansas not only enforces prohibition, but the unequaled prosperity of
its people, thc wonderful increase in
the value of its property: the liberal
appropriations to its public schools ;ind
public institutions, the growth and
development of its cities and the advance it has made in its whole civic life
within thc past twenty years is all the
proof needed to convince the thinking
people of Missouri that the declaration
that prohibition has ruined Kansas or
any business or civic interest in Kansaa
is simply a lie that must weaken rather
than help the cause of the brewers in
Missouri.
"The whiskey interests ought to know
that to slander Kansas in order to
strengthen them in their fight here is
an invitation to the people of Kansaa
to proclaim their estimate of prohibition to the people of Missouri, and
an exact understanding of how the
Kansans regard their law would not
help the brewers in their fight to 'save
Missouri,' because Kansas regards prohibition as an asset���not a liability.���

Against the Petition    J^
Directions for the Guidance of Voters
The voter will go into one of tho compartments, and with a paper there
provided, place a cross thus, X in the upper space if he votes FOR the adoption
of the petition (SCOTT ACT), and in the lower space if he votes AGAINST the
adoption of the petition (SCOTT ACT).
The voter will then fold the ballot, so as to show a portion of the back only,
with the number and initials of the deputy returning officer, and deliver it to
the deputy returning officer, who will place it in the ballot box. The voter will
then forthwith quit the polling station.
If a voter inadvertently spoils a ballot paper he can return it to the proper
officer, who, on being satisfied of the fact, will give him another.
If the voter places on the ballot more than one mark, or places any mark
on it by which he can afterwards be identified, his vote will be void, and will
not be counted.
If the voter taken a ballot paper out of the polling station, or fraudently
puts any other paper into the ballot box than the ballot paper given him by the
deputy returning officer, he will be subject to be punished by fine or by imprisonment for a term not excelling six months, with or without hard labor.
Don't forget that the petition is FOR the Scott Act. If
you are not in favor of a dry town you must mark your
ballot in the lower space. AGAINST the petition means
AGAINST the Scott Act. AND DON'T FAIL TO
VOTE. Every man in town entitled to vote on this question should do so. It is the most important question which
will be submitted to the people for years, and means the
life or death of the city.

LONDON'S OPINION
OF PRINCE RUPERT
SHIPPING JOURNAL ALLOWS ITS
CLAIM FOR SERVICE TO EAST
"Syren"  Says  If  Progress  It Maintained   It  Will  Rival Vancouver
Tacoma, and Seattle Within Quarter of a Century.
Prince Rupert is being talked of in
London. A writer in the "Syren and
Shipping," an important maritime journal, says some very pithy things about
the possibilities of this northern port
and suggests a future for it that will
astonish some of its older and more
southern knockers. He says: "the
Grand Trunk Pacific's western terminal
is growing with the characteristic rapidity of an American commercial seaport
centre, and those pioneers who have
seen the rise of Seattle, Tacoma and
Vancouver, freely state that in another
quarter of a century these Pacific ports
will be experiencing severe competition
from Prince Rupert."
The writer indulges in a quiet dig
at the intentional blindness of rome of
the Pacific coat townspeople in regard
to the possibilities of Prince Rupert.
With delightful ingenuousness he says:
"the curious feature of the whole thing
is that very few people, especially
Canadians, have any conception of the
significance of this port. Even if the
average Canadian (oh unhappy mean!)
has heard of the name he is somewhat
hazy aa to its geographical situation
and will tell you that it is somewhere
near Port Essington on the Skeena
River." The article contains a bright
description of the town as it was early
this year and evidences a keen observation on the part of the writer. A very
significant point dwelt upon is that
indicating the possibilities of Prince
Rupert claiming a large share of the
transpacific service. In that connection
he says with a dergee of knowledge and
foresight that cannot fail to impress
that "much has been said and written
from time to time concerning the advantages which Prince Rupert offers
from its geographical position so far
north in regard to the Orient, and as
to how much shorter the journey will
by this way than by any other. Much of
this has been based upon mere speculation but recently a practical proof was
afforded as to how much time could
be saved over this route to China and
Japan. A freighter was chartered to
carry a special cargo of cement fr m
Hong Kong to Prince Rupert. It left
Hong Kong on July 29th and reached
Prince Rupert on August 24tu. The
weather and all conditions were normal
but according to the captian's own
statement he made the journey three
days earlier than l.e could possibly
have reached Vancouver."
The article concludes with t*~e fol-
lowing pro hetc aug ry "ft? fact 'hat
rince Rupe.t h s made a good start
cannot be denied and il the present
pace in development ig kept up there
ill certainly be something doing among
the Pacific ports when anada possesses
a second and faster main line of railway
ftom Atlantic to Pacilii.

APPLICATION  FOR  CHARTER  IS
ENTERED AT VICTORIA
Proposed Line Will Run From Groundhog Through Blackwater���An
Application of Intereat to Prince
Rupert Citizen*.
Victoria,    Dec.   9.���An   application
has   been   made   to   the   government
offices here for a charter for the Naas
and Skeena river railway to run from
Groundhog through  Blackwater.    The
application is of considerable significance
to   Northern   British   Columbia   as   it'
demonstrates   the  deisre   to   open   up
the country and develop the rescourdes I
the  dfull  value of which  are  as yet !
imdroaint oi.
"I have decided," said the thentrical
manager, "to give you a trial, Miss
Arlington. Please bc ready to begin
rehearsing Monday afternoon."
"Thank you so much. But before we
go any further 1 must inform you that
I shall positively refuse to wear tights or
a gown that is cut low in the neck." .
"Oh, that's all right. In the part thut
I'm going to give you you will merely
have to stand behind a shed and help to
scream when the cyclone strikes town."
They wore on their honeymoon. He
had bought a cathoat and had tnken
her out to show hor how well he could
handle a boat, putting her to tond the
sheet. A puff of wind oamo. and he
shouted in no uncertain tone: "Let go
the sheet!" No response. Then again:
"Let go that sheet, quick!" Still no
movement. A few minutes after, when
both were clinging to the bottom of the
overturned boat, he Baid:
"Why didn't you let go that sheet
when I told you to, dear?"
"I would have," said the bride, "if
you had not been so rough about it.
You ought to speak moro kindly to your
wife."
Tho thought of marriage leaves some
women resentful of bondage of the
surrender of self. That is tho reason
these never marry.
Theories upon low by a man past his
prime arc as valueless as those of a girl.
Tho happines of women de'-ends
upon relegating love to the proper place.

News of the death of old Jem Mace,
the veteran prizefighter, who died last
Wednesday in London, England, will
revive memories of the old warrior in
the minds of some of the older school of
Canadians. One of his most important
fights that with Coburn was fought on
Canadian soil, at Dover, Ontario, and
the following narrative is furnished by
an old-timer, now in Toronto who was
present on that occasion:
"Mace's first fight with Coburn was
before the toughest crowd that ever
turned out to Bee a fight, and the wonder was how they ever got transportation to bring them to the scene of the
battle, which was held at Dover, Canada.
Later it leaked out that the backers of
Coburn had furnished the money for
railroad fares so as to have them at the
ringside to break up the fight in case
Coburn was getting the worst of it.
"During this fight, when Coburn found
he had no chance to whip Mace, he
would not come out of his corner.
Mace would come to the centre and
walk about Coburn and almost into his
corner, and beg him to come out and
fight. He dared not go any further into
Coburn's corner, fearing they would
throw pepper into his eyes or hit him
with a,blackjack.
"The Canadian militia was said to be
nearing the battle ground. The fight
was postponed. Mace and Coburn each
had a tugboat, which they jumped into
aa soon as the militia hove in sight
and crossed the lake to Erie, on the American side, where Mace put up at an
hotel for the night. Dick Hollywood,
the referee, then notified the men to
meet at Kansas City two days later to
finish the fight. The Coburn crowd
stayed aboard their boat for the night,
waiting for the morning train. That
evening they sent a delegation to the
hotel that Mace was stopping at. They
were met by Al Smith, who was the
umpire for Mace. They asked him to
see Mace and have him agree to a few
men on each side and to engage a room
in the hotel and fight it out rough-and-
tumble for the stakes involved.
"Mr. Smith told Mace what the Co-
burn party wanted to do. He replied:
'Does he want me to fight a dogfight?
I am a gentleman and a champion, and
I have won my laurels by fair, manly
fighting, and not by wrangling and
brawling or by a barroom fighting. If
Cobur.i wants to fight, with a fair field
and no favor, he can meet me where Mr.
Hollywood, the referee, has ordered ua
to finish the fight, at Kansas City. I
will be there to meet him.'
"Al Smith gave the committee sent by
Coburn's backers Mace's answer, and
they went away howling vengeance.
There were a number of the cleverest
crooks in the country among the party,
as all fights in those days were infested
with them, it being impossible to keep
the places of meeting a secret from
them. One in particular in the party at
this fight, named Papes, stole the watch
of the captain of the militia.
"Mace entered the ring at Kansas City
and claimed the stakes, as Coburn did
not appear. Instead of forfeiting his
money like a man, Coburn entered suit
against Harry Hill, the stakeholder, and
received his money.
"They were matched again. The night
before it rained in torrents and all next
day during the fight, and the ring was
a sea of mud and above their ankles.
It was very hard amnoeuvering abcut
in the mud, especially for Mace, as
slipping about was his style of fighting.
He was more like a flea, in and out,
never standing in one place a fraction
of a second. He was different from any
other fighter. He never kept his hands
guard up, always had his hands by
his side or-rubbing his chin or hitching
up his trunks; but he always had his
eye open for the least chance and would
dart in like a flash.
"Early in the fight Mace hurt his left
hand.   Coburn knew this, but still he
was afraid, knowing Mace was very
tricky. He was not sure that Mace was
not stalling, and dared not go into
Mace's corner. Jem kept dancing about,
begging Coburn to come on. As in their
previous fight, the militia came on the
scene and broke up the affair. Stakes
were   drawn.
"Mace next fought with Tom Allen
after which he retired from the ring and
went into business with Phil Hargrave,
who was well known to the sporting fraternity as a good fellow. They opened
up on Twenty-third Btreet, near Sixth
avenue. It was the headquarters of the
best class of clubmen and sportsmen in
New York. Shortly after going into
business Coburn, who Was jealous of
Mace's popularity with the better class
of sporting men, visited the resort of
Mace & Hargrave one evening with a
party of friends and asked Mace to give
him another match. Mace replied that
he had retired and that he intended
fighting no more. Coburn, who had made
considerable   loud   talk   and   abusive
lather

proven so satisfactory
with our customers
that we have been encouraged to import a
much larger stock of
them than we have
hitherto, and we now
have them in all the
well known shades and
sizes. Importing them
as we do, direct from
England, we have no
middleman's commission to pay and we are
thus enabled to sell
these coats as reasonably as if purchased
anywhere else in .Canada.
We are also opening
a large stock of Um-

PARTIES JOIN ISSUE
CONTINUED PROM  PACK 1
down the pillars of argument erected
by his opponents.
Economic, and Grammar
Mr. Paris opened the ball with a
frank appeal to economic law supplemented here and there by a series
of heavy asides of a sentimental nature.
He was followed by Dr. Mclntyre who
immediately joined issue on all and
every point referred to. The worthy
doctor evoked no end of mirth by his
laconic and presumably logical demonstrations of how and why, as well as
why not, certain places on the other
side of the line had turned on or turned
off the tap. So subtle was the argumentative variance in sorne instances
that the difference became almost in
distinguishable. One of the worthy
doctor's special side lines was correcting
the grammar of his literary opponent,
Dr. Spenrer, and it proved a diversion
entirely to the audience's liking.
Mr. Kerr Was Brilliant
The doctor's prosaic deliverance was
followed by the brilliantly versatile
effusion of Mr. Kerr who, in his early
passages, had the house going with excitement. He started out with a perfect
command of language but ere he had
completed the journey his subject revolted and became master of him.
Sincerity, not verbosity, was the cause
of his losing the firm hold he had established earlier. A misunderstanding
with Dr. Mclntyre, a half uttered
accusation met by a prompt denial, and
Mr. Kerr was thrown from the path of
his discourse. He recovered his ground
later, only to be checked by the call of
"Tima."
&$**************^
Mr. Blakemore Had Last Word
Then came Mr. Blakemore with his
cold and calculated arguments taking
up the threads of his opponents and
clipping them with a precision that
was almost callous.
Not on  tha Programme
An unfortunate and seemingly irrelevant reference to the church brought
Father Hartman to his feet and he
insisted on using the platform to explain
that whatever application the reference
might have elsewhere it had none to
his church. This impromptu turn was
succeeded by another and the meeting
began to develop an all-night-sitting
aspect. However the assurance of the
chairman and Mr. Blakemore that the
Rev. Mr. McLieod would have an
opportunity to have his say assuaged
that gentleman's feelings in the matter
and afforded an opportunity for adjournment as well.
