Special Staff Correspondence
gsncouver,  Dec.  1.���The new boat

ounced.   It has caused consternation
png the  Skeena cannery managers
general dissatisfaction among the
s und lower inlet canneries.

because  some  canneries  with
space, small plants and having

Following the publication of a story
in last night's "Empire" which has
been the means of frustrating the efforts
of the police to lay by the heels a criminal
who haa threatened the life of Alderman
Vernor W. Smith, Chief of Police McCarvell this morning created a sensation
by ordering the "Empire" representative
out of the court room. Some developments are likely to result.
Ordered Him Out
Magistrate Carss was holding court
at the time in the tiny shack called
police headquarters when the reporter
oi the "Empire" entered. Chief McCarvell immediately ordered him out.
A little time after S. M. Newton, editor
of the "Empire" entered followed by
the same reporter, Mr. McKay. The
editor started to address the court
when Chief McCarvell orered him to
take his hat off. He also told the
reporter to step outside.
Editor to the Rescue
Editor Newton said he saw reporters
there from other papers and wished to
ask why the representative of the
"Empire" was not permitted to be present.
Chief McCarvell said he objected to
Mr. McKay because he had published
something that had certainly hindered
the police in their work and had interfered with the course of justice.
Editor Newton asked what about the
Interests of his paper and Chief McCarvell retorted that he believed himself acting in the interests of the public,
which, as a matter of official duty had
to be his first consideration. In reply
to a question of Mr. Newton the chief
replied that he had no objections to
any other representative of the "Empire" being present but he certainly did
object to Mr. McKay.
Magistrate Appealed To
Mr. Newton appealed to the magis
trate declaring that the chief had no
voice in the matter. Magistrate Carss
said he desired to act fairly by all
parties in the matter and would therefore like to look further into it instead
of making any declaration right waay.
With this Mr. Newton left and in a
short time another representative of the
Empire arrived, whose presence was not
questioned.
Statement By the Chief
After Court adjourned Chief McCarvell made the following statement:
"In serious cases such as an attempt
at blackmail, it is very important that
all matters connected with it should
be kept profoundly secret as, if any
knowledge of it slipped out it might
be taken advantage of by the guilty
parties and enable them to escape.
"In this case an anonymous letter
was sent to Vernor W. Smith, telling
Mini to put $800 under a designated
atone near the fire hall if he valued his
life. Mr. Smith got that letter on the
afternoon of Tuesday. He showed it to
me about five o'clock that same afternoon and I advised him to make a decoy
letter; that certain money should be
put in a large envelope and placed
under the rock as the letter instructed.
At six o'clock Mr. Smith walked direct
fsom his office and placed thc letter.
Meantime I had an officer secreted in
such a position that he could watch the
spot.
"Just as we expected no person came
that night nor the second night, but
this McKay of the "Empire" made a
hard scramble to find out what the letter
was and having succeeded, published
what he learned in the "Empire. Thereby he prevented the police from getting I
the person or persons who has sent
the letter to Mr. Smith demanding the
money at the risk of his life."
Had Denied Any Knowledge
"I may also state that yesterday
knowing that several persons had knowledge of the threatening letter, I asked
McKay if he heard anything about an
anonymous letter to be good enough not
to mention it in the paper. "I didn't
hear anything about it," he replied,
and asked what it was. I told him it
would do him no good to know and he
then said he didn't want to hear of it.
I said if you do hear of it you will not
publish il, and he said he certainly
would not.
"So when he came in here this morning
I asked him to walk out. Later Mr.
Raymond, of the Empire, came in, and
he was just as welcome as the reporter
for any of the newspapers.
Defends His Action
"This is a private office, although
court is held here when the court room
is otherwise occupied. I have the right
to say who shall or shall not remain
in this office. AUo, the court has
authority to exclude all spectators and
reporters if it deems such exclusion in
the interests of the public and of justice.
There was nothing extraordinary in
expelling a reporter this morning. A
similar course was taken by the magistrate, at his own instigation and not at
my suggestion, in the preliminary hearing of the case of the King versus Williams, he no doubt believing that the
interests of justice were being served
by taking such a course.
^^^ Police Were Balked
"It is plain to be seen how the police
were baulked by thc foolish act of a
narrow-minded reporter who had nothing
else in view except making a sensational
write-up for his paper. I would not be
surprised if something happened to Mr.
Smith in consequence of its being made
public that he gave information to the
Joe Martin's Hard Fight
Joe Martin, in East l'ancras, is having
the hardest fight ever, and it seems
hardly reasonable to presume that he can
win. He is opposed by the suffragette
candidate Jacobs and by Hopkins, a
wealthy Unionist. Both were working
hard while Martin was in Canada and
his statements since his arrival, alienating him from the Liberal party, he does
not seem to have much of a show.
Rebellion Is Threatened
Belfast, Dec. 3.���The Orangemen el
Ulster province are openly declaring they
are buying arms and ammunition and
that they will never aanction home
rule. It is staled that al secret meetings
over len thousand have ln-t-n enrolled
in the "army," and that the Marquis of
Londonderry and Sir Edward Carson
are leaders in this movement.
MAN WHO CAN BORROW
Lots of Money, but Owns Little. Out
on Suspended Sentence
Backed up by a number of witnesses
of his own nationality Mike Wisker-
vitch appeared before the Magistrate
this morning to answer to the charge of
being a vagrant. Mr. Manson conducted the examination of the witnesses
all of whom testified to the excellent
character of Wiskervitch. They knew
nothing bad against him. Nick Pavlo-
witch said that while accused had very
little money at present of his own, his
credit was good up to several hundred
dollars with any of his friends.
Charles Witz who knew accused in
Alaska said the same, and declared he
had never seen him gambling in this
city. The story of another foreign
witness who had worked with accused
recently wood cutting at Mile 73,
tallied with these, and it was stated that
accused had returned from the railway
with about $160 to the good.
Magistrate Carss was, however, not
entirely satisfied with the accounts of
the accused's manner of living for the
past few weeks, but allowed Wiskervitch
to go on sus'-ended sentence with a
warning to behave himself.

have been able to apprehend the sender
of the letter and to have convicted him,
if the "Empire" had not warned him
that the police were laying in wait for
him." "lfHEPRINuE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

PROGRESS MADE
UP AT STEWART
DOMINION   GOVERNMENT  COMPLETE BUILDING THE WHARF
Hospital Is Now Finished, and the
Provincial Government Will Be
Asked to Erect a New School
Building for the Town.
tProm Thursday's Dally.)
William Manson, M. P. P. speaking
this morning of the steps taken to incorporate the city of Stewart said the
charter includes a special clause for
owning and operating a telephone system. It asks for a council consisting
of a mayor and six aldermen. The
qualification for mayor is $500 realty
and for aldermen $300.
Several meetings were held with the
executive committee of thc citizens'
association at which various matters
were discussed. A public school had
been opened with twenty pupils and they
are now asking the provincial government for the immediate erection of a
school building. The hospital has been
completed and seemed to be well fitted
up to meet the needs of the district.
Railway construction was going on
well and there was now a locomotive
running up and down the wharf and along
a portion of the road but the company
was not yet giving a public service. The
approach to the wharf has been completed by the Dumi.iiou government,
and arrangements are now being made
by the provincial government and citizens to connect this approach with
some of the streets by plank roadways
and  sidewalks.
AUSTRALIA WANTS
ALL-RED CABLE
WILL STRONGLY URGE IT AT
NEXT IMPERIAL CONFERENCE
Have a Programme of Ten Reforms
Looking for Better Trade Relations
Within the Empire ���Appropriation
Voted for Delegates.
Melbourne. Nov. 28.���The announcement that the federal government did
not intend to submit any proposals to
the Imperial conference in London next
June was received with a great deal of
surprise in official and political quarters. Still greater surprise was felt
today when it was announced that so far
from not submitting proposals to the
conference, the government would place
before it no less than ten motions.
- The cabinet has decided that it will
urge on the conference the promotion
of international trade, British goods
and shipping at the same time being
supported as far as possible.
Greater uniformity in company navigation laws is also to be advocated, as
well as thc encouragement of immigration, the alteration of the declaration of
London so that foodstuffs may be removed from article 24, and the amendment of the existing naturalization
laws.
The important subject of the establishment of an All-Red cable across the
Atlantic ocean���the cable to be worked
in conjunction with thc trans-Pacific
cable���is to be brought before the conference with the strongest possible
recommendations of the commonwealth
representatives.
(From Wednesday's Dally.)
Agricultural resources, minerals, timber, coal, waterpower, fisheries, and
scenery���these are the undeveloped resources that surround Prince Rupert
which formed the subject of Alderman
Naden's address to the Presbyterian
Club last night. A noble list of wealth
producers and Mr. Naden deacribed
their extent throughout the land and
seas surrounding Prince Rupert, with
confidence. These resources are indisputably there, and Prince Rupert is
situated at the most central point in
Northern British Columbia for handling
them to advantage.
Wealth from the Farms
Farm produce from the fat lands in ]
the areas watered by the Peace, Skeena, i
Liard   and   Fraser   rivers   with   their
tributaries will contribute to the prosperity of the city.    Spring rains and I
summer sunshine on the well tilled soil
in   the  Lakelse,  Kispiox  and   Bulkley
valleys   will   bring   autumn   harvests
golden alike for their growers and for
the trade of Prince Rupert.
Harvest of the Sea
Teeming seas within a few hours
run of Prjjice Rupert harbor will pour
in to the lines of waiting fish cars and
cold storage plants all the tinny wealth
of the deep. Why over in England today
Grimsby with fewer sea resources by
far. has leaped from a population ol
15,000 to one of 1:10,000 on account of
the fish industry alone. Rupert will do
more thinks Alderman Naden.
Mines, Timber and Water
Precious store from the marvellously
rich mining districts surrounding Prince i
Rupert will add richly to the growing!
wealth of the city;  and the far ranging:
timber tracts of the surrounding dis-1
tricts will immensely increase the pros-
perky of the business centre.   Water-!
power there is too, to develop, as pointed .
out by  Mr.  Williams after Alderman'
Naden's address, and Alderman Naden
lias  great   faith  in  the superb  scenic
wealth  of  Northern  British  Columbia j
to attract visitors from  far and wide
who   will   in   countless   ways   benefit
Prince Rupert.
Who Owns It Now
A note of warning, however, Mr.
Naden did strike. Who owns all this
as yet undeveloped wealth? he asked, and
in answer he showed that a large pre-
centage of it is being rapidly taken
possession of by those who aim at
holding it for speculative purposes. The
timber es-K-cially has been grabbed.
Where until a few years ago not 10 per
cent of the timber was owned by speculators now nearly 80 per cent is so
owned. It was so also to some extent
with agricultural land, and other resources, and Alderman Naden held that
the citizens and inhabitants of these
districts which are among the richest
in the empire should be awake to the
direction in which they were trending���
the tendency of these valuable resources
to come into the hands of the few.
Might Defeat Itself
Real estnte dealing in the city itself
he pointed out, might by the continual
raising of prices of lots, defeat its own
end, the prosperity of the city, by
making it increasingly difficult for the
humbler wealth producer to settle here.
An interesting discussion at the close
of the address, led by the chairman, Mr.
H. F. McRae, was taken part in by many
of those present.

During |ia
(From Thursday's Dally.)
By the announcement made by Mayor
Stork this morning that his private
business interests made it impossible
for him to offer himself for re-election,
the first definite step in the municipal
elections was taken. This leaves the
field open to Mr. William Manson,
M. P. P., the unsuccessful candidate
at the last election, and Alderman
Frank Mobley. The request to Alderman Mobley was made by a number
if his colleagues and citizens last night
after a private meeting, where Mayor
Stork announced his decision not to
enter the field for next year's contest.
The Mayor's Statement
Interviewed by an Optimist reporter
this morning, as to his reasons for withdrawing from the municipal contest,
Mayor Stork said: "My decision was
only reached after considerable thought.
The office of Mayor of Prince Rupert
is an exacting one, and during the past
year my mayoral duties- made great
demands upon my time. Fortunately
I was able to give all the time that my

London, Dec. 2.���There will be sixty
election contests tomorrow so lhat the
whole country is in a state of great
excitement today. The Unionists claim
they will get ten of these sixty seats

the support of the moderate voter. The
big fight of the election will occur in
Manchester, where Mr. Andrew Barlow,
Unionist will be a candidate, he having
vacated his seat for Dulwich in order
to oppose Sir George Kemp, the Liberal
member for Manchester.
Joe Martin's Defeat
The situation in the Midlands is very
encouraging to the Liberals the party
expecting to make a twenty per cent
better showing there than they did
last year. The Unionists are scattering
a leaflet reproducing the opinion of
Joe Martin recently given in the Canadian Colliers. Martin himself will
have a hard time being elected for East
I'ancras. He had but a small majority
at the last election and his attitude
against the government is calculated
to have lost him much support.

Iceena Cannery Managers Express Consternation-
Declare Abuses Are Perpetrated���Protests ,to
be Made���May Resultjin War Between Various Canneries
Special Staff Correspondence
tVancouver, Dec. 1.���The new boat
|ting for the northern canneries is just
nounced. It has caused consternation
|long the Skeena cannery managers
general dissatisfaction among the
sas and lower inlet canneries.
Skeena Canneries Indignant
"It shows extreme partizanahip," said
Skeena manager to the Optimist
brescntative.
[The commission's system ot rating
incomprehensible," remarked Mr.
Iter Wallace, the principal owner and
piager of the largest cannery on the
er.
"We will have to close down," is the
one of the inlet managers put it,
I every one of eight different managers
erviewed were aa severe in their
licism.
Worse Than Old Rating
Last  year  the  rating  waa  unsatis-
tory  because  some  canneries  with
ikes! space, small plants and having
all   packs  were  given   more   boats
the larger and  better equipped
aeries.   The commission which was
pposed   of  joint  representatives   of
i provincial and federal governments,
expected to make the rating ac-
Iding  to  the  capacity  and  annual
cks of the various plants.   That they
I far short of this object in their rating
the general opinion of the cannery
fen, and as proof of it several canneries
fere unable to get crews to fill all the
lats alloted them  while others were
piirls. to get enough boats.    It waa
might that this year's rating would
fjust these grievances but the managers
I they have only been made worse.
May Result in War
|I'rotest8 are being prepared by the
krious companies.    In  the event  of
hthing coming of them there promises
be a war among the canneries which
II make it the livliest and probably
lost disastrous season financially, ever
pperienced on the river.
Cannot Exchange Boats
In an effort to prevent this, several
inagaji who have been alloted more
[oats than they need, have offered to
up some of their boats to the
s-ries which are being squeezed,
i lie department regulations prevent
The outcome is problematical at the
WMt time but it will be watched with

The campaign wound up last night
in a blaze of oratory and fireworks
all the principal speakers in the government and in the United Kingdom being
on the hustings somewhere. Viscount

POLICE CHIEF ORDERS A REPORTER OUT
Is Angryjj With  Empire  Representative  for Publishing a Story
andjThus Frustrating the Police  in Their  Plans to
Arrest Dangerous Criminal--Chief McCarvell
Defends Action in Statement
Following the publication of a story
in last night's "Empire" which has
been the means of frustrating the efforts
of the police to lay by the heels a criminal
who has threatened the life of Alderman
Vernor W. Smith, Chief of Police McCarvell this morning created a sensaticn
by ordering the "Empire" representative
out of the court room. Some developments are likely to result.
Ordered Him Out
Magistrate Carss was holding court
at the time in the tiny shack called
police headquarters when the reporter
oi the "Empire" entered. Chief McCarvell immediately ordered him out.
A little time after S. M. Newton, editor
of the "Empire" entered followed by
the same reporter, Mr. McKay. The
editor started to address the court
when Chief McCarvell orered him to
take his hat off. He also told the
reporter to step outside.
Editor to the Rescue
Editor Newton said he saw reporters
there from other papers and wished to
ask why the representative of the
"Empire" waa not permitted to be present.
Chief McCarvell said he objected to
Mr. McKay because he had published
something that had certainly hindered
the police in their work and had interfered with the course of justice.
Editor Newton asked what about the
interests of his paper and Chief McCarvell retorted that he believed himself acting in the interests of the public,
which, as a matter of official duty had
to be his first consideration. In reply
to a question of Mr. Newton the chief
replied thst he had no objections to
any other representative of the 'Empire" being present but he certainly did
object to Mr. McKay.
Magistrate Appealed To
Mr. Newton appealed to the magis
trate declaring that the chief had no
voice in the matter. Magistrate Carss
said he desired to act fairly by all
parties in the matter and would therefore like to look further into it instead
of making any declaration right waay.
With this Mr. Newton left and in a
short time another representative of the
Empire arrived, whose presence was not
questioned.
Statement  By the Chief
After Court adjourned Chief McCarvell made the following statement:
"In serious cases such as an attempt
at blackmail, it is very important that
all matters connected with it should
be kept profoundly secret as, if any
knowledge of it slipped out it might
be taken advantage of by the guilty
parties and enable them to escape.
"In this case an anonymous letter
was sent to Vernor W. Smith, telling
him to put $800 under a designated
stone near the fire hall if he valued his
life. Mr. Smith got that letter on the
afternoon of Tuesday. He showed it to
me about five o'clock that same afternoon and I advised him to make a decoy
letter; that certain money should be
put in a large envelope and placed
under the rock as the letter instructed.
At six o'clock Mr. Smith walked direct
fsom his office and placed the letter.
Meantime I had an officer secreted in
such a position that he could watch the
spot.
"Just as we expected no person came
that night nor the second night, but
this McKay of the "Empire" made a
hard scramble to find out what the letter
waa and having succeeded, published
what he learned in the "Empire. Thereby he prevented the police from getting
the person or persons who has sent
the letter to Mr. Smith demanding the
money at the risk of his life."
Had Denied Any Knowledge
"I may also state that yesterday
knowing that several persons had knowledge of the threatening letter, I asked
McKay if he heard anything about an
anonymous letter to be good enough not
to mention it in the paper. "I didn't
hear anything about it," he replied,
and asked what it was. I told him it
would do him no good to know and he
then said he didn't want to hear of it.
I said if you do hear of it you will not
publish it, and he said he certainly
would not.
"So when he came in here this morning
1 asked him to walk out. Later Mr.
Raymond, of the Empire, came in, and
he was just as welcome as the reporter
for any of the newspapers.
Defends His Action
"This is a private office, although
court is held here when the court room
is otherwise occupied. I have the right
to say who shall or shall not remain
in this office. Also, the court has
authority to exclude all spectutors and
reporters if it deems such exclusion in
the interests of the public and of justice.
There was nothing extraordinary in
expelling a reporter this morning. A
similar course was taken by thc magistrate, at his own instigation and not at
my suggestion, in thc preliminary hearing of the case of the King versus Williams, he no doubt believing that the
interests of justice were being served
by taking such a course.
  Police Were Balked
"It is plain to be Been how the police
were baulked by the foolish act of a
narrow-minded reporter who had nothing
else in view except making a sensational
write-up for hiB paper. I would not be
surprised if something happened to Mr.
Smith in consequence of its being made
public that he gave information to thc
Joe Martin's Hard Fight
Joe Martin, in East Pancras, is having
the hardest fight ever, and it seems
hardly reasonable to presume that he eaa
win. He is opposed by the suffragette
candidate Jacobs and by Hopkins, a
wealthy Unionist. Both were working
hard while Martin was in Canada and
his statements since his arrival, alienating him from the Liberal party, he does
not seem to have much of a show.
Rebellion Is Threatened
Belfast, Dec. 3.���-The Orangemen ol
Ulster province are openly declaring they
are buying arms and ammunition and
that they will never sanction home
rule. It is staled that at secret meetings
over len thousand have been enrolled
in the "army," and that the Marquis of
Londonderry and Sir Edward Carson
are leaders in this movement.
MAN WHO CAN BORROW
Lots of Money, but Owns Little. Out
on Suspended Sentence
Backed up by a number of witnesses
of his own nationality Mike Wiskervitch appeared before the Magistrate
this morning to answer to the charge of
being a vagrant. Mr. Manson conducted the examination of the witnesses
all of whom testified to the excellent
character of Wiskervitch. They knew
nothing bad against him. Nick Pavlc-
witch said that while accused had very
little money at present of his own, his
credit was good up to several hundred
dollars with any of his friends.
Charles Witz who knew accused in
Alaska said the same, and declared he
had never seen him gambling in thia
city. The story of another foreign
witness who had worked with accused
recently wood cutting at Mile 73,
tallied with these, and it was stated that
accused hud returned from the railway
with about $160 to the good.
Magistrate Carss was, however, not
entirely satisfied with the accounts of
the accused's manner of living for the
past few weeks, but allowed Wiskervitch
to go on suspended sentence with a
warning to behave himself.

have been able to apprehend the sender

In renewing its activities the Illinois
Federation o{ Women has adopted this
platform of things to be accomplished:
"A concerted fight against billboard
advertising.
"A movement to establish public comfort stations in the cities of Illinois.
"An investigation of the treatment
and care of dependent and delinquent
girls in the state.
"A State campaign for a sane Fourth
of July.
"A movement to secure a woman
physician in every public institution
where there are woman inmates.
"A campaign to secure the pine-
woods of Ogle County as a State forest
reserve.
"A campaign for the passage of the
Eastern Forest Reserve bill, establishing a reserve in the Appalachians and
White Mountains.
"An effort to secure women's dormitories at the University ot Illinois."
in any other country. They have, it
is true, no political rights, but are frequently employed in the government
service, while as regards mental and
even physical employment there is
very little difference here between the
sexes. Go into a bank or a railway
station and your check is generally
cashed or your ticked handed you by a
female clerk. In the agricultural districts women work quite as hard as
men in the fields and in the towns are
often seen sweeping the streets."
Suggestions For Housewives
When a teapot has become musty fill
it with boiling water and add some
strong washing soda. Let it stand for
a day, and then scald it thoroughly.
Never use wood alcohol in the chaffing dish lamp, or the reservoir of an
alcohol stove. It will soon clog the
burner and cause it to soot. Instead,
use denatured alcohol, which is inexpensive, and is clean and practically non-
explosive.
A Ghastly Craze
Those staid professors who argue out
on coldly scientific grounds that women
is an undeveloped creature, a sort of
stepping stone between men and the
savage, could find a good deal of material to enforce their arguments from
the craze for ghastly relics which is one
of the latest hobbies of fashionable
women on both sides of the Atlantic.
The craze has broken out again in a
mania to secure possession of Crippen
relics, many visitors from the United
States offering large inducements to
secure mementoes of the crime.
It is not only the American tourists
who have been going to see the home
>o( Dr. Crippen in Hilldrop Crescent.
Numerous society people have been
going there with the object of securing a cutting from a plant or a bit of
the wall paper from thc room in which
the murder is supposed to have taken
place. The majority have had to
cs.ntent themselves with bits of mortar ���
taken from the outer walls, as those in!
charge have emphatically declined to be
bribed into giving even the merest
trifles. It is said, however, that Mrs.
Asquith, wife of the Prime Minister
has obtained the pen with which Mrs.
Crippen used to write her accounts for
the Ladies' Theatrical Guild. It has a
well used nib which no doubt makes it
all the more valuable to its present
possessor.
Georgina Lady Dudley a little while
ago suggested to an important official
at Scotlnnd Yard the advisability of
admitting visitors to see the house at
Hilldrop Crescent at 60 cei ts a head
and passing the money on to her for
one of her charities. He, however, did
not see the matter from her ladyship's
point of view.
"You prove yourself a lady of resource by your suggestion," he said.
"I believe emphatically were I to do
so it would result in more profits than
the Horse Show!"
Launder counterpanes by washing in
lukewarm suds, using a pure white
soap. Then gently squeeze out the water
and rinse. While wet fasten to a clean
flat aurface, using pins aa in lace curtains. The piece must be stretched so
as to have the threads of the linen
running straight. To dry padded em
broidery heat is necessary.
In waahing small, dried fruits, such
aa cherries, currants or raisins, the
best way is to turn them into a col-
lander or coarse sieve and stand it in
a deep pan of clear water. Rub the
fruit thoroughly between the hands
and change the water aa often aa needed.
Finally hold up the vessel and turn on
cold water, then spread on fresh towels
to dry.

THE ELECTIONS IN BRITAIN
Before we become too much engrossed in our own electoral contests, it is a
good thing to look away to the mother country and behold the spectacle of a nation
in the throes of political warfare.
A man is never so clothed with grandeur, as when he rises in his strength and
struggles at close grips with Fate or spends his strength battling for some moral
ideal. So too, a nation, which is but a great aggregation of men and women, is
rarely beheld to such advantage as when engaged in a struggle for the expression
of its changing ideals. And no nation exhibits the quality of its national spirit
at such a time as this as does the British people.
There are reasons for this. It would be strange were it otherwise. The title
"Mother of Parliaments" binds up many pages of history. From the earliest
recorded times it was the custom of the elder-men of the Northlands to gather
in conclave each evening at the village moot or witenagemote or round the sacred
tree, and there discuss the problems of village management. There runs a line
of descent through the councils of Sleswick and Holstein, to the parliament at
Westminster. Our own Council meeting at Prince Rupert is an offshoot of
British institutions. It is not to be wondered at then that with twenty centuries
of practice and precedent in their blood, the British electors at a time like
this are an interesting study.
There is in some quarters a habit of referring to England as is she were effete,
and the hey-day of her spirit had passed. The man who so speaks does not know
England. Financially she is still the dominant force in the world Over half of
all the borrowed capital of the world is hers. The social changes of the last few
years show how much alive is the spirit of her people.
It was significant that while other nations were talking democracy that in
Britain a man of the people should come forward, and with the aid of the Liberal
party give to his countrymen the most pregnant piece of legislation to ensure the
workers a share of the unearned increment from land, that any country has yet
adopted. The suddenness of it, seems to have misled many into underestimating
the enormous significance of the Lloyd-George budget.
Leas than a year has elapsed and England is again in the throes of an election
contest. This time the issues are more complex. The reform of the House of
Lords is being ardently advocated by the Radicals, led by Mr. Lloyd-George, who
frankly admits that his desire is to take away all power from the peers. He haa
gone so far as to support the Socialist candidate in South London, whose ideal is
the total abolishment of the House of Lords.
Home-rule for Ireland is another of the Government proposals which has been
received with general acceptance, but is fiercely opposed by the Orangemen and
ultra-Protestant factions of Belfast.
Against the Liberal proposals, the Conservatives are urging the promise
of a tariff referendum with might and main. It is a curious illustration of the
see-aawings of political warfare, this spectacle of the Conservative party of Britain
holding out as bait, the promise of a referendum to the people.
How aroused are the feelings of all classes of society is seen by such incidents
aa Rudyard Kipling's appearance on the platform at Brighton in defence of the
Lords; thc attack on Winston Churchill with a dog whip at Bradford, and the
atoning of his meeting at Colchester; the personalities of the Duke of Marlborough
on his erst-while guest Mr. Lloyd-George, and the speech of a Presbyterian divine
at Belfast agitating for non-payment of taxes to an Irish government. There is
not bins' wrong with the spirit of a people where such Incidents are possible.
It is dillicult from this distance to make any confident prophecies of the result
of the elections. Most reliable observers in Great Britain, however, agree in
believing that the net results will leave the parties in much the same position as
before the contest.
The significance of the British elections of 1910 will be seen more clearly by
the historian of fifty years hence. Five decades of Liberal teaching have done their
work. The old institutions of Britain are in the melting pot. From it all is seen
rising a new Britain, more strong and more beautiful for the purging firea it has
passed through.

A JOURNAL WITHOUT MORALS
Whatever may be the opinion of the court and the public upon Chief of Police
McCarvell's action in attempting to exclude a representative of the "Empire'
from the court room this morning, there can be no two opinions upon the action
of the newspaper involved.
The knowledge that there was a would-be assassin in our midst, whom the
police had laid plans to catch.was known in every newspaper office in Prince Rupert
It was being held a secret in the public interest, until such time as the writer of
the threatening letter could bc captured.
The action of the "Empire" in breaking that confidence haa frustrated the
plans of thc police and put the whole community at the mercy of a desperate
criminal.
Had a private individual acted the part of traitor to the public welfare and
warned this criminal of the police preparations, it would have constituted an offence
punishable by a long term of imprisonment. Is the offence any the leaa because
perpetrated by a newspaper?
The irony of the thing is all the more apparent, because in the legitimate
field of gathering and presenting news of Interest and value to the whole com
munity, the "Empire" has, day after day, right up to and Including the day it
broke faith with the police authorities, been badly beaten by ita contemporaries.

The Empire's Up-to-date Sermonette
We thought surely we had the preachers on our side, but I suppose even the
Liquor-League must have its chaplain
and deacon. He must be a very old
man, a champion of Joshua, whom he
seems to have accepted as his hero and
typical legislator. Certainly the license-
legislation which he champions has a
pre-historic smell. Next he will be
quoting Numbers 15:35 and maintaining
that every man found gathering sticks
on the Sabbath day should be put to
death. Why should the shades of the
Judges of Israel be summoned from their
repose to stand side by side with the
substantila corporal (very corporal) bodies of the liquor-vendors. He must have
mistaken these shadowy forms for
Temperance cranks when he expectorates
such adjectives as "neurotic, nervously
hysterical, prone to extreme picturing of
the imagination." I'm afraid he's seeing
things. His next sermon will be Numbers
21:6.

r,  Mclntyre and  Hia Concluaiona
A politician once said that: "A lie
ill stuck to is as good as the truth," and
poet said that "A lie that is half a lie
ever the blackest of lies." After all
the present campaign what we want
tlu> Truth, and we on our side as well
our opponents ought to bear in mind
��� two preceding maxims.    We can
figures to prove almost anything,
e have not been able to re-find Dr.
clntyre's figures, but do not doubt
leir accuracy, but we do doubt the
usions which he draws /rom them,
most assuredly are one-sided and
Heading,
What we have found in our searching
and  we  thank  Dr.  Mclntyre  for
ting ua upon this valuable volume):
hat the official report of the Internal
" venue  Department  at  Washington
Wn that the withdrawal of distilled
'Pints for consumption in 1907 was
[84,081,066.7 gallons, while that for
J908 was 119,703,594.4 gallons, and that
1909 was 114,693,578.2 gallons
Tins means that while the United
States has been increasing rapidly in
population the sum total of the distilled
'pirns consumed has decreased in two
years   earl   20 million i of gallons.
The same report shows also an increase in the consumption of fermented
'itpiors earh year until 19,9 when there
was a decrease of 2,444.183 barres.
In other words, the consumption of
Oirolled spirits has been decreasng
*"r the past three years, while the con-
jumptlon of fermented liquors has shown
tn�� first decrease in 1909.
Anyone who takes into consideration
ll,s
the recent influx of population from
Southern Europe will appreciate the
difficulty of stemming the tide of consumption of these fermented liquors���
a fact which Dr. Mclntyre did not note
before drawing his conclusions. This
devotee of the Peri-pat etie school would
astonish the old master of logic as on
such slender premises ha.built the over-
toppling conclusion that Loral Option
increases drinking to an alarming extent.
If we lived in the days of the Sophists
we might propound some such riddle as
this: "If no relative of the son of his
only uncle's brother had any interest
in this 'Economics and the Bar' discussion, would Dr. Mclntyre write us
a brilliant argument for Local Option?"

It is very much to be regretted that
we have in Prince Rupert any set of
citizens willing to descend to the level
of personal abuse when discussing a
public question in the newspapers.
Beaten in argument, their alleged facts
proved to be falsehoods, these self-
styled champions of morality are now
endeavoring to cover their defeat by a
cowardly and unprovoked attack on the
character of the license holders.
We ask any fair-minded citizen of
Prince Rupert to run over in his mind
the names of the license holders of this
city and then ask themselves if they are
the monsters of iniquity these psople
would make them out to be. Are they
not, man for man, the equals, morally,
socially and intellectually of any of these
self-appointed champions of the Scott
Act? To deliberately insinuate that a
decent and respectable fellow-citizen,
engaged in a legitimate business, is on
a par with the lowest dregs of society
may appeal to a certain class of mind
as good argument, but we hope that there
is enough manliness nnd decency in the
prohibition ranks themselves to prevent
its repetition.
What manner of man can he be
who uses the newspapers of the city to
willfully hurt the feelings not only of
a neighbor and fellow-citizen but his
family as well, and what kind of people
are they who are willing to help pay for
space in the paper for this purpose. We
would hate to think that the latest
effusions appearing under the auspices
of the Scott Act committee represent
the views of any considerable portion
of thc community. Rather we prefer
to think that the writer is one of those
late arrival' in the city who are endeavoring break into public notice
through the medium of this Scott Act
agitation. If it is this class of men whom
the passage of the Act will bring into
Prince Rupert in great numbers, then
we can only say that this is alone suffi
cient to condemn it in the eyes of every
man who loves fair play, and who refuses to subscribe to filthy abuse as a
legitimate weapon in a public controversy
Look at the names appearing on the
executive of the Citizens' League and
then ask yourself if they do not represent
the decency and intelligence of the
community fully as well as the leaders
on the other side. With one or two
exceptions these latter have no stake
in the town whatever and mnny of them
have only been in the city a few months.
That they have not even been in the
West long enough to imbibe its spirit
and traditions of fair play, is proved by
the character of their recent utterances.
Let every decent man in the city,
whatever his views may be, take it en
himself lo show these intemperate
temperance adovcates that thc West
will not stand for dirty abuse of an
opponent as un argument, whether the
man using it claims to be a moralist or
not.
If the advocates of thc Scott Act
cannot carry on their campaign on a
decent level lund their articles to date
seem to show that the level is somewhat
above them) then let them acknowledge
that mud-slinging is the only weapon,
they are capable of handling, and
people will know how to classify them
For our own part we do not intend to
meet them on any such ground.
The Scott Act writer in yesterday's
Optimist is rather unfortunate in his
choice of quotations. The question
of intemperance was never mentioned
by L ifd Alverslone in his sentence of
Dr. Crippen. Dr. Crippen was a tem-
ptrauoe crank amd a Local Option
advocate, and according to his own
confession, killed his wife because of
her fondness for strong drink. The
poor man died for his local option
principles, a martyr to the cause of
temperance. The local option people
are here now trying to do to Prince
Rupert what Crippen did to his wife.

ANOTHER LETTER ON
TEMPERANCE QUESTION
A "Liberal "Point of View
Friends and Neighbors:
1 am grateful for past favors and
having supplied my store with a fine
line of choice wines and liquors, allow
me to inform you that I shall continue
to make drunkards, paupers and beggars
for the sober and industrious to support.
My liquors will continue to excite lust,
murder, assault as the past two months
have demonstrated. They will diminish
your comforts, multiply fatal accidents,
substitute a credit for a cash business,
and make our city a resort for splendid
boozers rather than for timid creatures
who moralize over Home and Children���
forsooth!
They will deprive some of liberty,
others of reason, many of character
and all of peace. They will make father
fiends, wives widows, children orphanB,
and this matter of liquor-reform is one
to which respectable citizens should
show a proper indifference. I will train
your sons to have a fine scorn for these
neurotic, weak-kneed Local Option Johnnies and for all sentimental "Brother's
Keeper" ideas.
What right has anyone to interfere
with me just as my business is at the
zenith of prosperity?
Allow me to inform you that you are
all impressionable fools and I am.
Yours truly,
"An Honest Saloon-Keeper"

Voting on the Petition to the Governor-General for

Canada Temperance Act.

MERRY SEND-OFF
For the Petition
Against the Petition    Y
JOLLY CROWDS AT THE WHARF
WHEN PRINCE RUPERT LEFT
There Was a Bridal Party to With
God-Speed, and a Number of Well-
Known and Popular Peraonagea
Going South.
Directions for the Guidance of Voters
The voter will go into one of the 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 takes 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 exceeding 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.
There was a tremendous crowd down
at the wharf Thursday night when Prince
Rupert went out, several leading citizens
having a large number of friends to "see
them off." There was also a bridal
party and for this party genial Captain
Barney Johnson is reported to have
held the boat for a few moments while
the last good-byes were said.
"Barney" Waa in Fine Form
But the captain of the Prince Rupert
was not the only "Barney" in the limelight. There was Barney Ac'.and, "The
Great Nationalist of the North," and
all the Foley, Welch & Stewart staff
to see him off. They had given hin a
farewell dinner, with the concomitants
that make for jollity. And Barney was
jolly. He has worked in the steamer
department of the great contracting
firm for a long time and was evidently
a great favorite. He made a number
of patriotic speeches on the dock. As
he went un the gangplank he said: "I
am coming back, boys; but long before
I get here we shall have home rule for
Ireland." At which there were renewed
cheers for Barney and for home rule,
lasting until the ship pulled out. Barney
is going to British Honduras on a lilli-
bustering expedition.
A Bridal Party Too
The bridal party was Fred Henning,
of the Premier hotel and his bride, nee
Miss Mary Agnes Burkett. They were
married at 5 p.m. by Father Rivet.
Both are well known in Prince Rupert,
the bride being a sister of Mrs. G. A.
Sweet, and the groom well known as I
clerk in the Prenier hotel since its
commencement. A farewell dinner was
given to them at the Grand Trunk Inn
and the guests at the dinner and a number of other friends were at the wharf
to wish them Godspeed.
Others for the South
Another well known figure in the
steamship department of the contractors'
office is A. L. Brown, the chief bookkeeper. He and Mrs. Brown were
leaving to spend Christmas at their
home in Spokane, Wash., and they had a
number of friends to shake hands with.
Captain S. B. Johnson, superintendent
of Foley, Welch & Stewart, was also a
passenger. He is going to the coast on a
business trip and will be gone "two
boats."

THE   LAW'S  LONG   MEMORY
Six Months Old Suspicion Solidifies
to a Charge Today
Way back in July a man named G.
Sheffield waa suspected by the police
ot having obtained $6 by false pretences.
He left the city before he could be
charged, but the incident was not
forgotten.
Under the name of Stevens the same
man reappeared the other day in Prince
Rupert. Sergeant Regan saw him, and
this morning he appeared before the
Magistrate to answer to the charge.
Sheffield was also charged with having
taken a lock value $3 from the property
of F. Poole. "Not guilty," was his reply
to the charges. His case will be further
investigated.
St.   Andrew'a   Society   Note
S. D. Macdonald is Secretary of the
Prince Rupert St. Andrew's Society, not
Mr. Burns as mentioned in our report
of the Society's successful dance. Intending members of the Society are
informed of this, and will be welcomed
at all times. Forms of application for
membership can be had from Mr.
Macdonald. Mr. Burns is one of the
directors of the society who are so
energetic in everything lhat pertains to
its success.

CHIPS FROM THE
^HUMORISTS,
"Pa, what is meant by a dealer in
futures?"
"A fortune teller, my son."
Caller���I didn't know your son was
at college.   Is this his freshman year?
Mrs. Blunderby���Oh, no, indeed!
He's a sycamore.
For a long time the visitor to the
great museum stood gazing at the
Egyptian mummy swathed in bandages.
"Tell me one thing," he ventured.
"What is it sir?" asked the guide.
"Was it automobile or aeroplane
accident?"
"I will kill myself!" shouted the half-
crazed man, struggling in the arms of
the ollicers of the law.
"No, you won't!" said one of the
policemen.
"I will, I will!" I'll commit suicide,
or die in the attempt!"
Cholly���I say Tommy, aren't you
going to give me your sister for a Christmas present?
Tommy���Sorry, but I can't. When I
caught Mr. Spoonlate kissing her last
night, she made me promise that
would not give her away.
"Humor is a funny thing," said
Binks.
"It ought to be," siad the philosopher.
"Oh, I didn't mean that way," said
Binks. "I mean that it is a strange
thing. Now, I can't apeak French, but
I can always understand a French
joke, and I can speak English, but I'm
blest if I can see an English joke."
' Most people are," said the philosopher.
"Are what?" said Binks.
"Blest if they can aee an English
joke," said the philosopher. "It is a
sign of an unusually keen vision."
Before the magistrate the defendant
was charged with being drunk and
incapable. He was a stranger in the
district, but he was most acutely in'
dignant that he should be suffering the
humiliation of his present position.
"Thc constable seems very certain
about everything connected with my
case," he sneered; "but there is one
weak point in his evidence. "Why"
impressively���"does he not call his
fellow-officer to corroborate what he
says?"
His worship turned an inquiring look
upon the policeman, who vainly endeavored to conceal an expansive smile
behind an ample, but for that purpose,
all too small hand.
"There's only one constable stationed
in the village, sir," said thc officer.
"But I saw two last night!" indignantly asserted the defendant.
"Exactly!" grinned the policeman.
"That's just the charge against you!"

THE COUNCIL S RETIREMENT
After the drum-thumping of certain people who professed to be able to see
all sorts of far reaching plots to enable the members of the present City Council
to remain in office, the news recorded elsewhere in this issue that two-thirds of the
Council will decline the honor for a second term; should come with a wholesome
humiliation.
The exactions of public life are many, especially in a community like ours
at a time like this. Night after night, when other men after their ububI day's
work are resting by their own firesides, or enjoying intercourse with their fellows
at clubs and lodges, the City Fathers had to spend their evenings thrashing out
questions of grading streets, of laying sewers, of passing by-laws to look after the
health and order of the city, planning out methods of raising funds to carry out
improvements, und a hundred other tedious but necessary duties.
Just why it should bc considered a permissible thing to abuse those who serve
ua it is hard to say. It can only be explained by that inverted kind of humor we
on this continent possess, of finding something to laugh at in saying unkind thingB
about the things we most revere, notably our jokes about marriage, and our foolish
mother-in-law jokes.
While in every case the aldermen plead the sacrifice of business interests and
domestic joys as their reasons for not seeking re-election, there can be little doubt
that the habit in certain quarters of holding up ou^-rulers to unfair criticism must
make it difficult to always secure the services of the best men for public service.
Public criticism must always and should always be expected by a public man.
Criticism, especially that by the press, is the public's great safeguard against
incompetence and corruption. When the criticism is of the right kind it is often
welcomed by the parties criticized. The Dominion Parliament recognizes this
in placing the Leader of the Opposition on the salary list equally with the members
of the Cabinet.  As Chief Critic, his work is a valuable one.
But those journals which lack the critical faculty, and for interested ends
pour vulgar abuse upon public spirited citizens cannot be too quickly hastened
to the graveyard.  They are a menace to good government.

PLUCKY PRINCE RUPERT!
In Center of World's Future Progress
and Activity
The following reference to Prince
Rupert is made in the article "Canada
Growing Up" in the September issue of
the Nineteenth Century magazine.
"The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
touches the ocean at the new port of
Prince Rupert, near to the northern
point of the seaboard of British Columbia
and relatively close to the reported
goldfield on the Portland Canal. Whether or not this proves to be a valuable
mining district the eventual importance
from every point of view, commercial,
political, and strategical is clearly foreshadowed. The Pacific slope of the
giant mountains is even more beautiful
that the Eastern side, owing to the
milder climate and more varied clothing
of forest and flood. The population
has been more largely recruited in
recent times from the British Isles
themselves, and is therefore an advanced
post of the Imperial system on that
ocean which is said now to be the
center of the world's future progress
and activity. It is worth our while
to look ahead and be ready to support
the courageous outpost, in case its grip
of these priceless coigns of vantage be
challenged."

STRONGHOLD
OF SALVATION
CONTINUED FROM PAOE 1
It was an enthusiastic service, and
|tnui-h enjoyed by all who were present.
Th* New Building
The new Salvation Army citadel is
I certainly one ol the most commodious
land   well   equpipod    public   buildings
I in the  city.    Comprising  a  spscious
J ball behind  for  children's  gatherings
the citadel occupies a commanding and
central site at the top of Sixth street.
I'ainted a cheerful red and white, the
buildings are conspicuous and pleasant
in appearance.
Within, the hall is the picture of
j comfort, and Ensign Johnstone has
arranged with Mr. D. R. Morrison,
the contractor, for a number of clever
'">d convenient fittings to make tho
hall as far as possible perfectly adapted
'�� its purposes. Well-warmed, well-
ventilated, and with spacious speaker's
platform and scats for nearly 300 the
���Salvation Army hall of Prince Rupert
"-���'ill never want for audiences,
''articularly comfortable are the chairs
supplied by Mr. Macdonald of Second
avenue, and a splendid feature of the
citadel is the brilliant gasoline lighting
system installed by A. T. Parkin St Co.
who specialize in this means of lighting.
The lamp over the doorway sheds a
clear white light right down Sixth street,
and the installation within the hall
makes it bright as day.
Behind the hall are situated the
residential buildings���very compact and
cosy, with Ensign Johnstone's otlicc
convenient of access, and very siutublc
for Salvation Army business and discussions. In the short time they have
had occupancy of their citadel, Ensign
Johnstone and his staff have worked
wonders in its equipment. The whole
premises sre pervaded with the hopeful
cordial, up-lifting spirit of the Salvation
Army at its best.

LOCAL 0PTI0NISTS
ENTHUSIASTIC
PACKED HOUSE IN EMPRESS LAST
NIGHT
Congregations Assemble After Service Showing Strong Sympathy
With the Cause. Good Speech by
Rev. W. H. McLeod.
Churches in Prince Rupert held a
short evening service in order that
their congregations might assemble in
the Empress Theatre to support the
Locul Option cause.
When Rev. F. W. Kerr's service in
the theatre concluded there was already
a large gathering present. This was
swelled steadily by the other congregations until the theatre was thronged,
and many had to stand.
Vigorous addresses in support of
the Local Option cause were contributed
by A. McDonald, Dr. Kergin, W. E
Williams, W. H. Montgomery, H. F
McRae and Rev. W. H. McLeod.
Rev. Mr. McLeod devoted his address to a thorough exposure of the
statements of Mayor Gluck that Local
Option in Kansas was a failure. He
declared how Attorney-general Trickett
hud faced Muyor Gluck and proved up
to the hilt that the Mayor himself was
in league with the hotels, and thut the
law had been permitted to be flagrantly
violated.
Vet Mr. McLeod stated that Kansas
is a striking example of Local Option
success and declared he could bring
young men by scores from there who
have never seen a drunken amn nor
tasted liquor.
Referring to Dr. Mclntyre Mr. Mc-
U-od said that the genial doctor as an
entirely disinterested |-crson was a
pleasure to urgue with. He went on to
show case after case where Local Option
has benefited the business of cities not as
Dr. Mclntyre holds, retarded it.
Vigorously and eloquently delivered,
Mr. Mcticod's address aroused tremendous enthusiasm.
H. F. McRae's remarkable vision of
the splendid natural resources of Prince
Rupert deserting the locality all because
of Local Option was a striking and
original way of demonstrating lhat the
prosperity of this city depends on more
than the liquor trade.
Every speech indeed, was a stout
blow for the cause and thc enthusiasm
of the gathering was so great that many
are now confident that the vote will go
vastly in favor of Local Option for
Prince Rupert.
THE HISTORY OF A
PRINCE RUPERT ENTERPRISE
MARINE NEWS
The Camosun, which left here yesterday morning, took a bit mmmmmmm
day morning, took a big load of salmon
from Claxton and also some iother fsh
from this port.
Whilst walking up Centre street from the dock the newcomer will probably have noticed an unpretentious store facing him at
the head of the street. He may have read the sign "C. B.
Schreiber & Company, Limited, Men's Outfitters" and passed on
his way without giving it another thought; but if he has been observant he will also have noticed a small sign overhanging the
street with the simple device "Jaeger Pure Wool Wear" and the
thought would at once have crossed his mind that this must be the
leading Clothing Store in town. Yet, though the fact that the
Company holds the agency for Dr. Jaeger's Clothing, stamps it to
be of the highest class, there is no other outward sign on the
building to show that its history is part and parcel of the history
of Prince Rupert, or that within its doors are to be found as up-to-
date and varied an assortment of Men's Furnishings as can be
found in any retail store in British Columbia.
Capitalized by a few enterprising engineers who were employed in laying out the townsite, the firm of C. B. Schreiber &
Company was launched on its career when the only plank road led
from the wharf and terminated at the Anglican Church and the
and which is now our townsite was nothing but a wilderness of
brush and muskeg.
Atjthat time the population was principally composed of
the engineers who were locating and constructing the railway, the
surveyors who were planning and laying out the townsite, and the
prospectors who were searching for new wealth in unknown districts; and it was the primary object of the Company to supply
these men with really good clothing, such as boots that would
wear, rubbers that would keep out water, and woolen goods that
would be a protection from exposure, and when we know the
climatic conditions under which these stalwart pioneers worked we
know that to supply such articles that would stand the test they
were put to at a reasonable price was no easy task. Yet there are
many of the old timers who say that in those strenuous days they
have often been thankful for a pair of "Muskeg Boots," a
"Jaeger" Sweater or a "Jaeger" Blanket and felt grateful to
Schreiber & Company for enabling them to buy these articles on
the spot at Montreal prices.
The completion of the Pioneer's work was the advent of the
business men with their wives and children, and Prince Rupert assumed more of the aspect of a city. The change was rapid but the
"House of Schrieber" was prepared for it. The newcomers,
bringing with them the breath and energy of some of the largest
cities in the world, were not content with such goods as are usually
sold in a Backwoods store and insisted that in a town of such
promise as Prince Rupert they should be able to purchase high
class, smart, stylish clothing at the same prices as in other cities,
and today there is no store in Prince Rupert which has such a fine
selection of these goods as C. B. Schreiber & Company from Ready
Made Suits to Hosiery there is perhaps no store in British Columbia with such a large and varied stock.
It is unnecessary to enlarge upon the standing of the firm
as a business house. The fact that they hold the sole agencies in
Prince Rupert for Dr. Jaeger's Pure Wool Wear, Burberry's
Weatherproof Garments, K. Boots, Atkinson's Irish Poplin, as well
as that for the Vancouver Portland Cement Company and man
other well known firms, and in addition are the representatives for
the whole of British Columbia of the Edinburgh Roperie Company
of Leith, Scotland, Jas. Turner & Sons of Ipswich, England, and
the Bradford Truck and Trolley Company should be sufficient guarantee of their reliability.
The insurance and investment department of the business
also takes front rank. C. B. Schreiber & Company, Limited, are
sole agents in Prince Rupert for the Canada Life Assurance Company, the General Accident Insurance Company, the General Fire
Insurance Company, and the Stuyvesant Fire Insurance Company.
They are also the representatives of the holders of much valuable
property in town and some hundreds of acres in the surrounding
district, and during the recent activity in Mining Shares the Company bought and sold for clients upward of a million shares in
various Mining Companies.
Thus this Pioneer Company without recourse to pretentious
advertising stands today pre-eminent amongst the business houses
of Prince Rupert. THE   PRINCE  RUPERT   OPTIMIST
Form of Ballot Paper
Voting on the Petition to the Governor-General for
the Bringing into Force of Part II of the
Canada Temperance Act.
Directions for the Guidance of Voters
The voter will go into one of the 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 takes 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 exceeding 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.

Right* to Be Granted Preemptor*
Irrespective of Coal Location*.
The sale of a large number of sections
of land, on Delkatla Bay, promises to
prove the inception of a large and
flourishing settlement on Masset Inlet.
With a road from Cape Fife and the
opening up of the centre of the large
island, the site selected cannot be
excelled. Delkatla Bay forms a safe
anchorage for launches and small boats
in stormy weather, and will eventually
become the shipbuilding centre of Graham Island.
Five settlers arrived on the last
steamer and will remain on Masset
Inlet awaiting the opening up of the land
now staked for coal and timber.
The Secretary of the Settlers' Association received word from the Lands and
Works Department that at the next
session of the legislature, surface rights
will be granted on the east side of Masset
Inlet to all pre-emptors, irrespective
of the ground staked under license for
coal and timber.
The new wharf on the Indian Reserve
is almost finished, and will be ready
for the Prince Albert to berth on the
next trip. In taking soundings it has
been found that fifteen feet of water is
available at the lowest tide and thirty
feet at high tide. A more complete
wharf cannot be found in the province
and it is a credit to the Dominion Government and the builder, Henry Eden-
shaw, of Masset.
The season for game is now being
taken advantage of by numerous hunters
Wild geese and duck are in abundance
The Indians have trapped twenty black
bears during the month, and .vill make
an effort to locate caribou when the
first snowfall occurs on Virago Sound.
A Christmas school social, and a sale
of work, the latter in connection with
tho Church of England, will take place
during the holidays. The ladies of
Masset Inlet are preparing for the sale
of work, holding weekly meetings and
manufacturing a stock of fancy articles.
The members of the Masset hand of
Indians will entertain the Hiada's of
Alaska during thc holidays. The visitors
will bring a brass band.
James Martin is making an addition
to his store and post oflice. Dr. A. Ross
Fraser has erected a hospital tent and the
Dominion Government is erecting office
buildings and a residence for the Indian
Agent. It is understood that Mr.
Christy will erect a residence, at Delkatla
in the near future.
A large number of witnesses have
proceeded to Vancouver to appear in
the civil cases in connection with the
staking of coal claims on Virago Sound
and Masset Inlet.
It is felt that a great hardship will
result from the withdrawal of the weekly
steamer, and the substitution of a fortnightly service, duringthe winter months.
The conditions are becoming different
from former years, and a weekly steamer
service with Prince Rupert is called
for by the increasing passenger and
freight business.
The timbers for the new wharf at
Masset and the piles used, were all
produced on the Inlet within two miles
of the structure. The sawmill is in full
operation, and intending settlers are
purchasing quantities of lumber.
The Masset Brass Band and Choir
will play and sing Christmas carols on
Christmas eve; and will hold several
entertainments.

Twenty People Interested Appear to

to Next Thursday Week���No Appeal From Minister'* Decision.
Victoria, Dec. 2.���-A dispute as to
priority of location of certain coal lands
on Graham island occupied the utton-
tion of Hon. William R. Ross, minister
of lands, for the greater part of yesterday
afternoon. The parties to the dispute,
Messrs. Johnson and Jessup, though
acting nominally for themselves as
individuals, are in reality the representatives of the extensive interests in the
lands in question.
Fully twenty persons were on hand
yesterday to give evidence in connection
with the matter. Tho minister after
hearing as many of these as possible,
saw that he would be unable to finish
the inquiry yesterday, and adjourned it
until the 16th of December.
The question is entirely one to be
dealt with by the minister himself, and
there will bc no appeal from his decision
aa to which party is to have the lands.

j CHIPS FROM THE
[humorists
"We need brains in this business,
young man." "You needn't tell me,
that sir.   Your business bIiows it."
"Did you ride in Charley's automobile?" "Yes, it was lovely. The
constant osculation did'nt bother me a
bit."
Hostess���Mr. Squibs is going to recite
a comic song. Quest���I knew something would happen. I upset the salt
at the dinner table.
"What makes you think she's uncultured?" "She thinks Ibsen's plays
are stupid. "Well, a lot of people think
so."   "Yes, but she says so."
Bacon���And you say your brother
has settled in Canada? Egbert���No, I
didn't say so. I think he went there tc
get out ot settling.
A Wyoming cowboy called to see
Owen Wister in Philadelphia and was
permitted to inspect the author's city
outfit. As he casually examined an
opera hat it sprang upon. "A sell-
cocking hat!" said the cowpuncher,
admiringly. "Now, don't that beat
hell!"
A story is told of a shock received by
a Duluth pastor alter the services the
other night. He makes it a point to
welcome any strangers cordially, and
that evening after the completion of
the service he hurried down thc aisle
to station himself al the door.
A Swedish girl was one of thc strangers
in the congregation. She is employed
as a domestic in one of the fashionable
east end homes, and the minister,
noting that she was a stranger, stretched
out his hand.
He welcomed her to the church and
expressed the hope that she would be a
regular attendant. Finally he said that
if she would lie al home some evening
during the week he would call.
"Tank you," she murmured, bashfully, "but ay huve a fella."
Three of tho members of the congregation heard the conversation; and in
spite of the fact that their pastor swore
them to secrecy, one of them "leaked."
Circus Among tha Clouds

A special train will be chartered lo

NEW DEPARTMENT
Hon. Thomas Taylor to Be Provincial
Commissioner of Railways
Victoria, Dec. 2.���The Provinciul
i Government has decided to create a
{department of railways and a bill for
that purpose will be introduced at the
next session of the legislature. There
arc now more railways such as thc
Canadian Northern Pacific, the Portland Canal and thc V. Si S. as well
as electric lines which will naturally
come under the jurisdiction of such
a department and its work will no
doubt increase rapidly. No new portfolio will be created for the present.
The new department of railways will
be attached to that of public works
and will be under Hoh. Thomas Taylor.

NON-PERSONAL LIABITITY
Thursday, December 8, the sale of Silver Cup treasury shares at 12 1-2 Cents Per
Share will be withdrawn. The Continued favorable developments in the mine
together with the substantial treasury reserve will enable the Company to proceed
on a system of development that is calculated to add great value to the stock.
A big advance in the price of shares is justified on recent important discoveries, and we feel sure of
a steady, permanent and extended advance in the market price of Silver Cup shares. Looking a few-
months ahead, we venture the opinion that the stock will sell for many times the present price. Our
prenictions are based upon sound estimates of what may reasonably be expected from a liberal development of the Silver Cup ore bodies. : : To secure Silver Cup Mines at 12 1-2 cents per share
call at our office on or before Thursday, December 8. Terms of purchase furnished on application.
We reserve the right to return applications in the event of an over-subscription.
