DEMOCRATS SWEEP THE COUNTRY
Roosevelt's Candidate Hopelessly Defeated In New York State.���
Next House Will Have Democratic Majority of Forty-Three
and Victorious Party Also Gains Control of Senate
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Nov. 9.���The elections
yesterday throughout the states show
a great victory for the Democrats.
They secure in the house of representatives a majority of forty-three, and
rescue the senate from the control ol
the Republicans for the first time in
many years. Dix, the Democratic
candidate for governor of this state,
defeated Colonel Roosevelt's candidate
by the large majority of fiftyfive thousand.
The streets of this city were crowded
.ill Monday night watching the electric
bulletins of the predictions of the results
in the various contests all over the
country, there being elections in no
less than twenty-five of the states.
Wall street kept open house yesterday
although a holiday; all the firms and
their staffs being in attendance and
watching the returns as they came in
over the tape.   The crowd was divided
between these officers and the bulletin I
boards  of  the  newspapers.    Many  of
the  large  dry   goods  linns  threw  the
results as they came in on the sky, and !
these could be read as far away as Long
I Island and New Jersey.
There was tremendous rejoicing in
I this Democratic city, the Tammany ���
| braves being out in great force. Torchlight processions and brass bands kept
up a hubbub all night long. Although ;
Democratic gains were expected the
sweeping victory cams as a surprise.
When the campaign ended Monday
night politicians admitted that they
were at sea as to the result, because of
what is termed the silent vote, which
in this election was looked upon as the
biggest factor. The independent voter
was the nam of the hour, and it was
impossible to forecast the result on that
account. The overwhelming victories
in unexpected quarters was therefore
the cause of the especial rejoicings, and
it was admitted on all hands that the
only good Roosevelt had done was to
stir things up and to an extent destroy
old parly lines and atliliations.
In New Jersey the famous college
professor, Woodrow Wilson, was elected
by the Democrats, and the other governors elected were:
Connecticut, Judge Baldwin, Democrat.
Ohio, Judge Harmon, Democrat, a
probably candidate for the presidency.
New Hampshire, Robert P. Race, Republican.
Rhode Island, Governor Pothier, Republican, re-elected.
Tennessee, Ben W. Hooper,* Fusion
candidate.
Alabama, W. McGraih, Democrat.
Iowa, Claude R. Porter, Democrat.
Michigan, Charles Osborne, Republican.
Oregon, Oswald West, Democrat, leading. .

Why Hans Felt Cold
A  BALLAD OF BORROWED   BLANKETS BY OUR POLICE COURT  POET
The frost was keen the other
night, you know how cold you
felt; the snow had made the
mountains white, and touched
the timber belt. Hans Hansen
feeling mighty cold, curled up
within his shack; upon his bunk
were blankets old, he coverings
did lack. His neighbor Mr.
Frank Lindquest, had blankets
nice and new; this Hansen heard,
and Hansen guessed they'd keep
him cosy too. So Hansen sallied
forth by night, those blankets he
annexed; he tucked them round
him snug and tight, half frozen,
Frank felt vexed. Frank called
the man in blue to aid his vanished wraps to find; the man in
blue was unafraid, the man in
blue was kind. He found thc
blankets speedily, concealed within the shack, where Hans had
placed them needily, when cold
about the back. He led Hans
Hansen to the court, where Hans
was made to pay a ten spot bill
and costs because he took Frank's
wraps away.

"Waiter," called the irate diner,
"there seems to be a dollar on this bill I
can't account for."
"Oh, that's just a joke, sir," apologized the waiter. "Just a bet the cashier
and I have. I'll have it fixed right away,
sir,"
"What do you mean about a bet?"
asked the diner, detaining him.
"Well, sir, I bet the cashier fifty centa

you wouldn't, so I win, sir."
"Suppose I hadn't noticed it?"
"He'd have gotten the dollar, sir."
"Oh, I see. Give me your pencil,"
and he wrote a few lines on the back of
the bill, folded it up, and handed it to
the waiter.   "Take that to the cashier."
The waiter leaned over the cashier's

NO TOWNSITE AT FORT GEORGE
Railway    Has     Trouble    Over    the
Indian Reserve
Edmonton,  Alta.,  Nov.  7.���That  it
will   be  some  time  before  the  Grand
Trunk Pacific will be in a position to
| announce the location of the townsite
I at Fort George, was the statement of
I C. Wiseden, chief clerk of the land department   of   the   company,   who   was
! here   on   business   in   connection   with
townsite properties at Edson.
"It all depends upon whether we
secure the Indian reserve at Fort George.
If we do not secure this property, it
is altogether likely that we will have
to move our townsite away from there
altogether. There has been nothing
definitely settled yet regarding that
townsite," said Mr. Wiseden.

ASSAYS FROM
THE SILVER CUP
LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
SOME ORE GOES OVER HUNDRED
DOLLARS TO TON
Prince Rupert Shareholders Satisfied
From the Results of the Assays
That They Have the Makings of ���
Great Mine in the Silver Cup.
Alderman V. W. Smith, vice-president
of the Silver Cup Mines, Limited,
handed to the Optimist the report of
A. W. Austin, assayer, on a sack of ore
weighing 200 pounds taken from the
Silver Cup en Nine Mile mountain and
brought down. This is the shipping ore
which anyone will find lying on the
dump or in the tunnels. The ore was
divided into four parts by thc assayer
with the following results;
Sample One���Gold value 60c, silver
$94.34, lead $32.16, total $129.10.
Sample Two���Gold 80c, silver $63.28,
lead $24.32, total $88.40.
Sample Three���Gold $2.00, silver
$34.20, lead $23.04, total $59.24.
Sample Four���Gold 60c, silver $72.19,
lead $31.36, total $104.16.
The above showings are very satisfactory and those who are most heavily
interested are more than pleased. They
are satisfied that they have a good
mine which will pay big dividends. That
the general public share in this belief is
evidenced by tho fact that the hundred
thousand shares are now nearly all
subscribed for.

WANTED-SOME ECONOMISTS
Alderman Lynch proved himself to be the economist of the city council in
the debate on the Grand Trunk Pacific assessment on Monday night. His contention that the granting of exemptions to the railway company would be attended
by a shrinkage in the borrowing powers of the city is an important one.
Under its charter the borrowing powers of the city is limited to twenty per
cent, of its assessment. Consequently for every million dollars of assessment
exempted, there would be a curtailment of $200,000 in the city's capital. To reduce
the Grand Trunk Pacific's assessment from $7,200,000 to $333,000, -for that is
relatively what Mr. Hays' offer of $5,000 per year means-would mean a shrinkage
in the city's borrowing powers of $139,000. There is nothing in the situation
which requires the city to sacrifice $139,000 of its potential capital in order to
mollify the Grand Trunk Pacific.
The plea was raised by two aldermen that several industrial corporations
were waiting for the assessment deadlock to be settled before coming into the
city. But will they come if the difficulty is settled by the citizens assuming the
railway company's burden of taxation? The question requires no written answer.
It is self evident.
If, as is claimed, industrial corporations are in a state of hesitation, it jb
to make sure that they will not be called to take up more than their fair share of
taxation. It is a factor in the situation that should make the aldermen more than
ever anxious not to rush into a hasty and ill-advised settlement.
Several interests show signs of being obsessed by the railway company without
there being any occasion for panic. At this stage of the proceeding no one need
administer an opiate to his retlective faculties. The issues in the assessment of
the Grand Trunk are very well understood by the highly paid brains in the employ
of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. It is necpssary that the citizens should
also realize how far reaching any settlement may be.
A question is never settled, unless it is settled right.

MUNICIPAL OWNERSHIP SPREADING
The cause of municipal ownership is spreading in old Ontario. The Toronto
city council has inaugurated a movement to have the Provincial Government
purchase the Bell Telephone company's lines in Ontario. Petitions to that effect
are in circulation and other municipalities will be asked to co-operate. The excessive
and discriminating rates charged by the company have long been a bugbear. Toronto is also so impatient to have a municipal street car service, that it is talking of
buying out the present company, instead of waiting for the eleven years of its
franchise lo run out.
Why should Alderman Hilditch have such an aversion to anyone whose name
ends in "vitch?" Only the difference between a "d" and a "v" keeps him out
of the family.

B. A. McNab Retires From Editorial
Staff of Montreal Star
Monreal, Nov. 7.���Interesting developments are said to be pending in
newspaper circles in Montreal over the
retirement of B. A. MrN'ab, managing
editor of the Star. What Mr. McNab's
plans are is a matter of conjecture. It
is rumored that his retirement from the
Star was part of a plan made by Sir
Hugh Graham with Lord Northcliffe, by
which Sir Hugh was to let Mr. McNab
go in order that he might assist in the
tariff movement, so dear to the hearts
e>f both Lord Northcliffe and Sir Hugh.
Despite Sir Hugh's profession of
ignorance of Mr. McNab's plans, it is
generally believed that the latter will
enter political life.

This is a little section of thc paper, which from day to day will be devoted

The Suffragettes Won
"That women should have the vote"
was the verdict given last evening by
the Presbyterian Club, as a result of
their debate on woman suffrage.
The woman's side of the question was
ably upheld by Mrs. D. McLeod and
Mrs. B. R. Harrison while the negative
speakers were Mr. Sloan and Mr.
Gallop.
Mrs. McLeod, the leader for the
affirmative, argued that woman intellectually is equal if not superior to man,
and that she can rule as well out of the
home as in the home. Although some
'. women may not feel the need of the
franchise, she said, these should not
stand in the way of those who desired
it.
Mr.   Sloan   quoted   from   a  popular
1 ladies' magazine and this finally proved
his undoing.   After a gneeral discussion
of the question by both sides a standing
vote gave the decision to the affirmative.
The meeting was the largest and most
enthusiastic in the Club's history.
and cotton for summer wear is affected by
the majority, and the underclothing
consists of close fitting "combinations,"
reaching but a short way down the thighs.
"This, Dr. Cantlie urges with emphasis,
"is an insufficient covering for a growing
boy." It is all the fault of the indulgent
modern mother who is anxious to see her
infant boy look a "little man."
Forty years ago the dress of boys
until the age of eight was practically the
same as that of girls. Dr. Cantlie points
out that the kilt is the favorite dress of
the royal princes, and urges that were
British mothers in all grades of society,
"to follow the example set by the royal
family in this as in other features of
family life, it would be well for the
nation."

Some   Household Hints
A few drops of ammonia in water will
take the grease off dishpans; a little
put into warm water for washing paint
will make it look like new.
When jelly is put into a kettle to boil
drop in a small agate marble. It will
keep in constant motion in the bottom of
the kettle and prevent burning.
The long celluloid collar stiffenera sold
at notion counters are useful to give
body to the floppy brims of children's
hats, especially those made of linen.
When steel knives and forks have become tainted with fish they can be
rubbed with fresh orange or lemon peel,
and the taint will disappear entirely.
Beauty doctors are now reinforcing
the claims of vegetarians with a theory
that meat hastens the approach of old
age, and that fruit impedes the aging
process.
After washing windows or mirrors,
dampen a cloth with alcohol and rub
them vigorously, if you would have a
brilliant polish.
On  Ironing  Day
A few of the essentials to the ironing
table, besides the table itself and the
irons, are an ironstand, an ironholder
with an asbestos lining, a bit of beeswax
tied up in a piece of cheesecloth, a bowl
of warm water with a sponge or a piece
of soft linen with which may be dampened scallops and edgings which have
become too dry to iron well, a piece of
paper folded with several thicknesses on
which to test the heat of the iron, and
to wipe any black smirch from it.
Degrees Women Are Taking
Another subject discussed by the conference was that of the position of women
in the universities.
Miss Beatrice Edgell, M. A., Ph.D.,
Lecturer on Philosophy at Bedford
College (University of London), read
a paper on "The Position of Women in
the University of London, the Provincial Universities, and the University
of Wales." Quoting figures compiled
from information furnished by the
registrars of the universities concerned,
she said the number of graduates was
the highest for the degree of B. A. Over
2,000 women had graduated in arts. In
medicine and surgery over 400 women
had taken the London degrees; a few
had qualified at Manchester: some at
Durham, others at Birmingham, and
two at Bristol. One woman had graduated in theology, five in law, and two as
doctor of lawB. Birmingham gave them
a doctor of philosophy, Manchester a
master of technology, and London a
bachelor of science (agriculture). In
each of the universities there were
women working as teachers in the
faculties of arts, medicine, science, or
economics. In any university where
the life was open to men and women
on equal terms women were bound to
resist any effort to attach to their
teaching a scale of payment lower
than that in use for men. They must
res-'st this or abjure the very faith
w1 .eh had opened th* gates of university life to them���belief in the
meanim and value of university training.

LUMBER ON THE STREETS
The Kilt For Boys
To the discussion of "clothing leform,"
which was dealt with at the conference
of Women Workers, in London, Dr.
James Cantlie puts in, by way of footnote, a strong plea for the kilt as a
healthy garment for growing boys. It
is not the national predilections of a
patriotic Scotsman that has brought the
doctor to this view; but his experience
and observation as a medical man. Dr.
Cantlie points out that boys of even the
well-to-do are not apparently improving
in physique. How often do we observe,
says he, a family consisting of an
average-sized mother, of tall, well-Bet-up
girls, and of rather ill-developed, often
weakly-looking boys? The difference in
clothing is largely responsible for this
state of things. Nowadays, quite young
boys and girls are not clothed alike as
formerly. "At an earlier age than used
to be the case boys are taken out of
frocks and put into "suits." A "sailor
suit" made of thin serge for the winter
A Source of Danger to Passersby in
the   Darkness
"Tbat city light seems a long time
coming," said a well-known citizen the
other day to the Optimist. "But it's
not so much the lack of light that
troubles me, as the abundance of loose
lumber scattered on the streets in certain
parts of the city. I could take you to
several places now where timbers are
piled anyhow in a manner calculated
to trip up anyone passing in the darkness, and pitch him off the plankway
altogether.
"The other night I fell heavily myself, and in groping round the place
to find what had tripped me I found a
telephone pole stretched pretty nearly
straight across the Btreet. I don't
know why lumber should be strewn
about on the thoroughfares like this
but I do know that the system is a
source of danger to pedestrians in the
darkness, and I should not be at all
surprised if the city were sued for
damages Borne day over this matter by
someone who has been injured."

Those two firms have acquired a piece
of land for townsite purposes in the
famous Pleasant Valley (a valley within
the greater Bulkley) on the line of the
G. T. P. Railway, about thirty miles
east from Aldermere, and eighty-five
miles from Hazelton, at the junction
of the llulkley and Buck rivers. It is
the natural townsite of Pleasant Valley, which is one of the richest valleys
and contains some of the best land
in the interior of British Columbia.
The land in the valley is all taken and
the greater portion settled on. The
trail to Francois, Fraser and Otosa
lakes runs within a mile of the town-
site and will be diverted to this town.
The site is surrounded by the richest
agricultural lands, as well as coal lands;
; is only five miles from the famous
| Barrett Ranch, conceded one of the best
! in British Columbia. Engineers and sur-
! veyors are now on the ground planning
the site, and the above firms anticipate
putting the lots on the market by January 1st. They have not, however,
quite decided on a name for the town
: and believing thoroughly in the old
adage that "everything's in a name'
are going to offer a prize of Twenty
Dollars ($20,001 in Gold, for the most
suitable and appropriate name for their
new town.
Conditions are as follows: Contest
open to the world. The name must be
one word, not to exceed ten letters, and
a reason given why the contestant
I considers it an appropriate name. The
i contest closes on Friday, November
25th, at six o'clock p. m.
