Good Day's Work Already���Mayor's Chair Waa Filled by Alderman
Mobley.
Alter their strenuous exertions of
yesterday in close conference with
Mr. D'Arcy Tate on the assessment
question, the Mayor and members of
he city council were not inclined for
a long session at laat night's council
meeting.
Until some few minutes after eight
| p.m. it did not seem as if there would
even be a quorum present, but one by
one the aldermen appeared dripping
wet, for it was raining hard just then,
and presently the Mayor called the
council to order and the minutes were
I read.
Shortly afterwards Mayor Stork re-
I quested that he might be excused aa
his presence was required at another
meeting, and Alderman Mobley waa
requested to lake the chair. Business
for  the  evening   waa  light,   and   the
[motion to adjourn was carried by nine
I p.m.
There was no mention of the assess-
Imenl made in council, but some de-
jaultory  ri'tnarks   passed   between   the
���aldermen  in  relation  to  the   problem
tMore the council aat.
Good Luck t* Them
Two well known young people were
I united in marriage by Rev. F. W. Kerr
yesterday.  The bride was Mias Beatrice
j Bateman  of  Bateman's  Landing,  and
the happy groom, Mr. James Hunter,
who is well known in Prince Rupert and
| up the Skeena.
The young couple left at night by
the Prince George to spend a honeymoon
trip in Vancouver and Seattle. They will
return shortly and take up their permanent residence in Prince Rupert.

A TRIBUTE TO
PRINCE RUPERT
MR. Wm. BLAKEMORE TELLS OF
OUR FUTURE
Saya He Admires Our City, Our Climate and Our Ladiea���Predicts
Great Prosperity When Interior
Coloniaation Develops.
Before leaving Prince Rupert lor
Vancouver on the Prince George laat
night Mr. William Blakemore, the hero
of the anti-Scott Act campaign, furnished the Optimist with An interview
upon his impressions of the city and its
future. As one who took a leading part
in guiding public opinion upon an important issue such as the liquor question
his views are entitled to some respect
and consideration.
"My preconceived notions," he said,
"did not antic-irate anything like the
development that haa taken place on
the townsite nor the difficulties to be
dealt with in handling that work. I
think il will be one of the most costly
cities 1 have ever seen before it is licked
into proper shape, hut once it is shape
I think il will be a very fine city indeed.
One of the principal factors that will
contribute toward making it so is your
significant harbor, which, being land
locked, ensures safely at all times.

THE "WIRELESS"
TO BE IMPROVED
DIGBY ISLAND WILL BE FINEST
ON PACIFIC COAST
Duplicate Transmitting Apparatus
and Engines to Be Installed Insuring a Twenty-four Hour Service���
Ready by Christmas.
The wireless station on Digby Island
will in a very short time be one of the
finest on the Pacific coast. The Importance of the station has been fully
recognised by the Fisheries Department
and it is the intention of the authorities
to have it fitted up with all the latest
appliances and at the same time duplicate the transmitting apparatus and
engines at present on the station.
Mr. W. H. McQueen, one of the
departmental engineers, is now on the
island looking over the station with a
view to making arrangements for the
installation of the improvements. It
is expected by Mr. J. K. Harker who ia
in charge of the station that all the
improvements will be in their place
and ready for operation by Christmaa,
and when that is done he is confident
that Digby Island will have one of
the most up to date and best equipped
stations on the coast.
At the present time the service is a
sixteen hour one but with the installation
of the new machinery it will be possible
to give ajtwenty-four hour service. THEPR1NCE    RUPERT    0PTIM1&T

j     DEVOTED   PRINCIPALLY   TO  THE INTERESTS  OF  WOMEN

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 its columns, and to take part in its discussions. Suggestions and criticisms are invited by the editor. The hope is expressed that "The
Cosy Corner" will fill a social need.

Sex Education in Schools
The number of persons and societies
who are agitating the question of g:ving
definite teaching about sex-education
to school children, is growing. One of
the most recent advocates is Henry B.
Dewey who urged the matter last week
during a parent's meeting held under
the auspices o* the Spokane Society of
Social and Moral Hygiene.
"This subject must be taught in the
near future," said Mr. Dewey. "The
only question at this time is the manner
in which it shall be- presented to the
schools. It will become a part of the
school course just the same as instruction
in agriculture.
"The subject is not improper which
deals with the relation of man and
woman. We muat agree that it certainly
is high time to find the best manner
In which to present the subject. Vice
ia prevalent and unchecked. As a
result of the ignorance of the present
generation much misery and suffering
will prevail in the future.
"The subject has never been wor ked
out and ten years ago it would have
been considered an impossible one in
the public schools. At the present I
do not know what points wf want,
but as soon as the subject is taken up
by more of the thinking people the
problem will soon be solved.
"The subject has been tabooed in
thc churches and homes, and it seems
that the time ia here when the teachers
must be trained to present these matters
in a scientific manner to the children."
The remarks of Mr. Dewey followed
an address given by Judge Huneke,
who bitterly criticized the immorality
of school children, which he considered,
in the main part, due to ignorance.
He especially criticized the officials for
not enforcing the curfew law and for
permitting young children to loi'er on
the streets and in the public parks at
night.

outspread wings planted in one corner.
For the luncheon table arrange a
centerpiece of yellow crysanthemums and
over it suspend an airship made of
white crape paper tilled, v.ith cotton
batting and shaped like a cigar. Fasten fine strings along the under side,
allowing them to hang down about
eighteen inches, then draw then, together at the ends and tie them to a
small basket in which stands a tiny
doll dressed in leather. Make the propeller of three pieces of cardboard,
gild and place it al one end of the airship. Fasten to the small areonaut's
basket as many white ribbons as there
are guests. To these ribbons are attached favors of papier mache flying
machines, birds and little toy balloons.

Oldham's Lady Mayor
Mrs. C. E. Lees has been elected to
the office of mayor of Oldham. Only
one other woman has preceded Mrs.
Lees as mayor of an English borough.
Mrs. Lees haa been on the council
three years, and in February was given
the freedom of the borough. Oldham
has never before admitted anyone to
ita freedom. The honor was done Mrs.
Lees in recognition (as the council's
resolution set forth) of her generous
contributions to the Oldham infirmary,
the establishment of a private home for
nurses, the founding of scholarships in
the Hulme Grammar school, her large
benefactions to numerous other philanthropic, charitable and religious institutions, and the provision for the
healthy recreation and enjoyment of
the inhabitants of the borough. Mrs.
Lees, in her siieech acknowledging the
honor of the freedom, said that through
no effort of hers wealth came to her, and
she had considered it a bounden duty
to spend some of it for the good of the
town in which much of it had been
made, and for the benefit of those, among
others, by whose labor it waa acquired.

ALDERMAN MOBLEY'S CANDIDATURE
Tonight the supporters of Alderman Frank Mobley will meet in hb committee
rooms on the ground floor of the Mclntyre building to hold a rally. To that
meeting all of his friends and supporters are invited. Those who are not personally
acquainted with Alderman Mobley, but who are curious to know the gentleman
who has been selected by his colleagues to be their leader for next year should
not fail to attend. Alderman Mobley is worth knowing. His courageous action
in coming forward at the Citizens' League meeting laat Saturday night and defending
his department from the attacks of those who sought to make political capital out
of the meeting was typical of him. He is head and shoulders above the other
two candidates for Mayor.
During Alderman Mobley's term of office he haa displayed a capacity for work;
he has become thoroughly acquainted with the needa and problems of the city.
That service is a guarantee of his character; that knowledge a guarantee of his
ability.
Always, as in the incident of Saturday night, he has displayed courage in
declaring his convictions and ability in resisting and repelling an attack. Hia
personal integrity and manly qualities are unquestioned.
It was no undeserved compliment which Mr. D'Arcy Tate, counsel for the
G. T. P. paid to Alderman Mobley and his brother aldermen yeaterday during
the conference on the assessment question, when he spoke of their firmness in
standing out for the interests of the city, and thoroughly businesslike attitude.
Opposed to Aid Mobley is a gentleman scarcely leas able in point of natural
gifts, bat who lacks his strength of character and taste for work. No man in
Northern British Columbia has had more splendid chances than Mr. Manson;
certainly none has flung them away bo recklessly.
Seven months ago Mr. Manson offered himself for Mayor and was rejected
The memory of his betrayal of the city in the matter of the Tsimpsean Power
company's franchise and his silence in the House when the city's charter waa being
mutilated were then fresh in the public mind, nor have they yet been forgotten.
Since (ken his lack of spine has been manifested in many ways. Even since his
present campaign began he has showed his unfitness for public life by leading both
parties in the recent Scott Act issue to believe that he was on their side. Even
when challenged in the press to come out of hiding and face the charge he funked,
and made excuses to his friends.
With two candidates having such strongly marked contrasts the issue ia
simplified. The voter who wants to know and support the better man can make
no mistake in attending at Alderman Mobley's committee rooms this evening.

SPOKEN UKE A HERO
In the excellent Christmas number of the Canadian Magazine there is an
article by the late Goldwin Smith that should be read by some of our latter-day
heroes. Near the home of Mr. Goldwin Smith in England the first Duke of Wellington had his country house. The Duke attended church at Strathfieldsaye,
and on one occasion "a worshipper went up to him and begged to be allowed to
take the hand of the victor of Waterloo.   'Don't make a d fool of yourself,'
was the hero's reply."
This is quite on a line with the "pretty Polly" incident in the Iron Duke's
life.

EARLY POLICE COURT
Magistrate Carss Steals a March on
the Reporters
Bright and early this morning before
the reporters got round Magistrate Cans
held police court. Very unusual and
out of the way was the case that came
up before the bar. Very unusual was
the sentence (or which the accused who
pleaded guilty, waited in nerve-racking
suspense. That such an offence as the
one charged should be committed in this
city is indeed startling.
But it will not happen again. Warned
by the swift apprehension and sentence
the delinquent in this case, a man
hamed McKinley, will take care in
future not to incur again the penalty
of a five spot fine with two spot frills
for being drunk and disorderly.

A TRIBUTE TO
PRINCE RUPERT
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
unfavorable in the main. The only
expensive work is on the terraces above
the waterfront, but behind that the
country is not half so difficult as at the
back of Seattle which is now in process
of development also. There is room for
a city of unlimited population. Even
if the population stretched out to half
a million there would be no difficulty
in accommodating them in the area
available.
"I have been impressed with thc
number of beautiful buildings already
erected although they are frame buildings
and will have to be replaced in a few
years with permanent structures, they
are nevertheless of a high character for
so young a city, and they represent
much investment, which is indicative
of confidence in the future.
Intelligent People
"I have been impressed particularly
with the very largo number of intelligent
enterprising men. I have never been
In a new city anywhere which had only
reached the stage of development of
Prince Rupert with anything like the
percentage of intelligent, wide awake,
energetic, business men. I consider
them as the greatest asset of the city;
and they are all optimistic. I have never
attended such meetings in a town of
thiB size, or anything like the size nor
have I ever known audiences follow
the discussion of public topics with the
attention and interest of Prince Rupert
audiences. If the same interest is taken
in all public questions no mistake can
be made and the future of I'rince Rupert
is assured.
External Inftuencea
"Apart from the inherent evidences
of a great future I consider that there
are external influences at work which
will speedily contribute to that future
in a marked degree. Apart altogether
from the fact that it is the terminal
of a transcontinental railway I'rince
Rupert will be the capital of Northern
British Columbia; and she will speedily
realize that position when the Bulkley
Valley and the Naas Valley are developed as they will be in the immediate
future. The latter, in my opinion is
going to surprise everybody. It is
one of the largest and most fertile
valleys in British Columbia with more
than half a million acres already taken
up. I believe that probably the whole
of this valley will be colonized by
organized colonization companies, which
will mean a more rapid development
than by the ordinary process.
"I have also reason to know that
within a few years the railway will run
from lkai Valley, through the Naas
country, by the Kitsumkalum to the
Skeena river and thence to Prince
Rupert. It i." not unlikely however that
the greatest industrial factor in the making of Prince Kuper will he the development of the fishcr'es hu'ness; and I
should not be surprised if within a few
yean? there was a score of canneries
iis.Hr Prince Rupert as well as a totally
unexpected development of the fisheries
of every kind, especially halibut.
Conl Price Outrageous
'1 might speak of the mining possibilities but lhat is a more speculative
element. There Is sufficient evidence
however to justify ihe conclusion that
coal in abur.riance will be found within
easy distance of Prince Rupert, say one
hundred miles, and that ought to result
'n cutting the present price of coal in
this city right in half. I ds. not hesitate
to say that $11 a ton m Prince Kupert
is an out-age on common sense, and
nothing short of a holdup. Fuel is a
very important factor not only in lhe
cost of living but in the development
of a city.
"I found Prince Rupert on what wsa
my lirst visit, bigger, slr-mgcr, and
better and more hopeful than 1 expected,
which only goes to show that the outside world has not been any too well
informed as lo its resousces and at-
trac'ions. My last word must he in
reference to the climate, which while
we have had a fair share of rasn <,������>������, not
incline me to call 't other than in-'lrl;
and to the ladies of the city who are
easily the most sensible I havi ever
met in one respect. Never before did
I meet ladies vho were w'lling to do
their shopping in gum boots, oilskin
coats, and sou'wester and I have been
in many places where those requisites
have been needed more.
TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS
Bill For Legal Services in Connection
With Incorporation
Two thousand dollars is the little
fee charged by Mr. J. Taylor for services
rendered along with Mr. Patmore ia
connection with the incorporation Of
Prince Rupert. Mr. Patmore has been
unable to get Mr. Taylor's bill to send
in along with his own but it appeared
last night, and some one (was it lhe
chairman of the finance committee?)
gave a long drawn whistle at the figure.
The account goes to the finance committee for consideration.
To Be Done By Day Labor
According to the recommendation of

TWO SCIENTISTS
TURN ESKIMO
ARE UP IN THE ARCTIC STUDYING CONDITIONS
In Order to Get Eaact Knowledge
They Took No Equipment but
Are Living Like Eskimo Among the
Kogmolik.
The hardships sometimes endured b y
scientists in their studies of remote
tribes of uncivilized oi half-civilized
human beings are portrayed in the experiences of two explorers whs> were
sent out to the wild Arctic region of
the Mackenzie delta by the American
Muse'-m of Natural History.
In order to best study the customs
of one of the most interesting Eskimo
tribes in tho Mackenzie section, the
scientists have literally "turned Kogmolik," or adopted the life of ihe Kog
inohk tribe, living as they do, eating
the same uncooked food and in every
other way adhering to the Kogmolik
customs as far at possible.
The two explorer are Dr. R. M.
Anderson and V. Stefansson, both ethnologists They were sent into the
Arctic region nearly two years ago to
gather information and epecimens intended for the ethnologic;.! collection
���f the museum. The labors of the two
scientists and explorers are nearing an
end and they will soon be back home
after two years of work.
The Stefasson-Anderson expedition,
as it is called, differed materially from
the usustl expedition which is sent into
the Arctic wilds. Usually expeditions
before siatrtiiig for the land of per
petual ice provide themselves with a
complete muds, for braving tbe rigors
of the frozen north. Hut Stetansson
and Anderson traveled light. The ex
plorers carried little or no food, extra
clothing or house materials. The whole
plan was thought out before they left
town. It was planned that, as the main
purpose of the expedition was an eth-
lining i-nl one, it would be best to live
with the natives in their houses in order
to better study thc language, folklore,
songs, customs and beliefs* and ambitions of the primitive people.
Then- was one stretch of fifteen days
when Mr. Stefansson and his band of
Eskimos existed on whale meat, sealskin, some deerskin for sole leather, our
snowshoe lashings, in fact every edible
thing except clothes.

The contract is hard sought for by
British firms, because it means their
establishment in Canada with government aid in the form of dry dock
subsidy, and an extra price for vessels.

Quebec, Dec. 14.���A very peculisr
case of religious interest arose on thc
eve of the death of Mr. Jacques Faure,
the French aeronaut. When Faure's
condition was considered hopeless on

commons Sir Wilfrid Laurier made
public recen*. correspondence, showing
that Premier Roblin, after protesting
the fairness and justice of the demands
of his government for an additional
financial grant to Manitoba by the
federal government, on the same basis
as that given to Alberta and Saskatchewan, receded from his former attitude
of no-compromise and suggested that an
alternative offer from the Ottawa government would lie considered. Mr.
Roblin offered to submit any such
alternative offer, together with the
decision as to which they considered
the fairer.

R��5AD THE OPTIMIST
The initial performance of the Prince
Rupert Choral Society was given in
the Empreaa Theatre laat night. Unfortunately the inclement weather militated considerably against the event
achieving the same amount of success
it would have done had the circumstances
been normal. Those who were there
however made up for their numerical
shortcomings by an exceed of appreciation
with a result that waa satisfactory in
a high degree to all parties. When it
ia remembered that the Society only
came into existence three months ago
their concert of laat night must rank
high. The material ia there all right
and there cannot be any doubt that
the Society will develop greater compass
and power with the advent of a little
time.
The programme was arranged with
a due regard for variety; and while
none of the numbers attacked offered
any great technical difficulty the style
and finish with which they were rendered
waa indicative of the fact that they
were well within their depth. Numbering over thirty the Society ia rich in
vocal talent. If in one or two instances
the spirit of interpretation was conspicuous by its absence, it was made
up for by the generous measure of
faultless expression and enunciation.
Among the glees, which brought out
the best qualities in the composition
of the Society, were such favorites as
"Jack Frost," "Break, Break, Break,"
and the "Lullaby of Life."
The leading soloist waa Misa Holtby
who rendered "The Carnival" in a
manner that left little to cavil at. Her
rich flexible voice found itself at home
in expressing the charmingly varied
moods of the song. Mr. J. E. Davey
the conductor and organiser, sang
"Nirvana" and proved himself the
possessor of a pure tenor voice. Meaars.
Davey, Scott, Melliar, Froud and Fletcher, took part in quartette numbers
which were much enjoyed.
Additional variety was lent to the
performance by the recitation of "Lasca"
by Mr. F. A. Ellis. Gray'a Orchestra
figured prominently in the second half
of the programme. Their musical
services were so much appreciated that
they had to respond. During the
interval Mayor Stork spoke a few words,
encouraging the society and commending
it to the music loving public of Prince
Rupert.
CULVERT IS A GOOD ONE
Streets Committee Report on Firat
Avenue  Work
Regarding the culvert work on First
svenue the quality of the timber
which had occasioned alarm in the
breast of Mr. C. Bennett of Vancouver,
the streets committee stated last night
thst this work waa so planned that
repairs when necseesary can be eaaily
effected.
Speaking about the work yesterday
Colonel Davis remarked that it is
unwise of any one to judge a job too
hastily when it is unfinished. As a
matter of fact, a strong stone arch
will be built over the culvert where the
timber is now only temporarily used.
THE TWO RIVALS
MEET AT LAST

GRADING OF NINTH AVENUE
Will Be Done by John Vierick. Contract Awarded
At last night's city council the streets,
works, and property committee reported
recommending that the tender of John
Vierick be accepted for the work of
grading and planking Ninth avenue.
As we go to press word is received of
! the defeat of the Scott Act in  Chilliwack by 26.
On her run south to Vancouver the
I'rince George succeeded in doing what
a whole campaign could not do for the |
belligerent   parties   in   the   Scott   Act!
campaign, namely, bring the principals
together.   Last night Dr. Spencer and
Mr. Faris, the Scott Act campaigners,!
found themselves in company with Mr.
William   Blakemore,  the  license  hero,
and it is just possible that before th"
journey  is completed they  will  have
arrived  at a better understanding of
one another's arguments and will have
developed   a   higher   regard   for   each
other's veracitv.
These prominent agitators were not
the only people of consequence which
the Prince George conveyed back to
Vancouver. There waa Mr. D'Arcy
Tate, who waa returning after having
bean in consultation with the civic
rulers of the city in connection with
that all important question the G. T. P.
assessment; and also Mr. McMaster,
the G. T. P. agent, who has gone to
Port Arthur for a month's holiday.
Altogether the Prince George had
over a hundred passengers, over seventy
of whom travelled first class.
