Increase   of  Twenty-one   Per  Cent
Since 1900 Mainly by Immigration
Rural Districts Show a Decline in
Population.
Washington, Dec. 17.���In the United
battel and all ita possessions the Stars
,n<! Stripes protect 101,100,000 souls.
This is the official estimate of the
United States census bureau, announced
Mterdty, in connection with the open
htUttca for the country aa enumerated
ii the thirteenth decennial census. It
ncludis ihe Philippines, Samoa, Guam,
Inv-aii, Alaska and the Panama canal
one.
Within its borders on the North Am-
riciiti continent, exclusive of Alaska,
hi- United States has a population of
l,!s'.!7.266 inhabitants. In the last 10
ears the population of the Union had an
icrcase in population of 16,977,691
I'hirli amounts to 21 per cent over the
800 figures.
In a statement explaining the in-
reuse of population of the continental
Jniied Slates to 91,972,266, Director
Biirami attributes the growth largely to
pater net additions through immigra-
|on.
[ The decline in rural population has

BALLASTING IS
OFF FOR WINTER
WORK ON G. T. P. WILL BE RESUMED IN SPRING
In Meantime the Men Are Erecting
Snowaheds and Building Bridgea to
Facilitate Work on Resumption���
No Service in Sight.
General Superintendent Mehan of the
Grand Trunk Pacific who visited the
end of steel the other day along with
Chief Engineer Kelliher reports no more
ballasting can be done this winter. The
ballasting operations were being carried
through with all possible speed so that
Mr. Mehan might be in a position to
recommend the inauguration of a weekly
service to points on the line but this
possibility was put well out of sight by
the sustained severity of the weather.
Ballasting had to be abandoned altogether, and the men had to turn their
attention to other work incidental to
the line, such as the building of sheds
and bridges and the laying of concrete
foundations.
In the spring the ballasting will be
resumed and once the line is in fair
shape Mr.Mehan will probably recommend that a weekly service be put
on. As the line progresses the length
of the service will be extended and it is
hoped that in that way greater facilities
will be given to the settlers living in the
unfrequented parts and also to the j
prospectors who want to learn the lay [
WINDSOR HOTEL
IN FIRE PERIL
EARLY MORNING BLAZE BREAKS
OUT ON SUNDAY
Fire Occurred in Height of Gale.
Grave Risk to City Averted by
Work of Fire Department. Plenty
of Water.
Fire early yesterday morning threatened the fine new Windsor Hotel just
opened on First avenue and Eighth
street by Maurice Bondeau. From three
a.m. to five Fire Chief Mclnnis and his
men were out in full force combatting
the outbreak. Originating in the basement where the chimney passes through
the wall on Eighth street, the fin-
smouldered its way upwards to the roof
filling the whole building with smoke.
Just at that time the gale which
has been raging over the city was at
its height, and appreciating the grave
risk to the city if the big building
blazed up in such a storm, Fire Chief
Mclnnis did not spare hard work und

WATER FAMINE
JUST AVERTED
TORONTO HAD TROUBLES OWING TO ICE PACK
City in a Desperate Condition When
the Engineer Succeeded in Dislodging the Ice From the Intake
and Resuming the Flow.
Toronto, Dec. 16. Toronto citizens
were plunged into consternation this
morning by the announcement that
the water intake had been choked.
The supply of water suddenly dwindled
to the vanishing point, and the city
made dependent upon the reservoir
which only contains a day's supply.
The five-foot pipe under the bay
through which the water was supplied
to the city previous to the building of
the tunnel, also went dry. This is now
used to supply the high-pressure fire
service, and could only be operated in
case of emergent y by using bay water
which is noi lit for domestic use.
Efforts to draw lake water through
the five-foot pipe, emptied the pipe
so thoroughly that it started from ita
head anil began to rise to the surface.
Finally, about noon, when the situation had become almost desperate,
the engineering force succeeded in
dislodging the ice from the intake, and
the water famine was arrested.

The Equality of Woman
That "woman is the mental and
physical equal of man���morally, she
has always been his superior," and
I "Woman has been the greatest con-
! servative force in the world's history,"
j and, "Progress is due to man, but
I woman has ever directed it in right
> channels," these, and other like senti-
; ments pleasing to the ears of women,
t were advanced by Dr. Guy Carleton
| Lee's in a recent lecture on "The Soul of
| Woman."
He declared that the woman of the
i twentieth   century   has   for   the   first
j time in the history of womankind compelled man to give her absolute equality
,of opportunity with himself; it remains
to be seen how she will use it.   Man has
never   wilfully   attempted   to   retard
' woman, never maliciously put clods in
her way.   Nevertheless, he has hindered
. her through a lack of understanding of
i her,  through  a  failure  to  realize  the
needs of her nature, but woman has never
'retrograded;   always, though never so
| slowly, she has advanced till  at  last
in our present day, she stands on a
| plane of absolute equality with man���
except in those instances where she is
his superior.
While the woman wage-earner and
the woman in public life generally, do
not injure the home���rather on the
contrary���the value of the woman in
the home cannot be understimated.
"The foundation of a nation are the
homes of that nation."
duty for him in the present campaign,
and she is having a reception almost
rivalling that of a cabinet minister.
The British working man does like
pluck, and Mrs. Baker possesses in
addition the power of getting straight
to the hearts of her audience.
At one meeting she told a touching
story of the only time she had Reen
her husband in tears. For weeks he
had been preparing facts to lay before
Parliament, but he was then struck
down with illness, and the doctor
ordered him not to leave his bed.
But he determined, she said, to go.
So weak was he that he had to be
assisted out of bed; he had to be helped
to dress; but then he collapsed and
had to abandon the attempt. And
then, said Mrs. Baker, he broke down
and sobbed that he had failed to do his
duty.
But the audience realised he had
not failed; that his effort to go to
Parliament in such circumstances was a
triumph of endeavor. They were more
proud than ever of their member, and
were thrilled by such a touching little
disclosure of his devotion to duty.
Mr. Baker was re-elected a day or
two ago.
Maxims of Power
The eleven maxims of power by
Principal Jowett, who was one of the
wisest philosophers of his day, are
worth being pasted in every person's
day-book of life. They have been
called the "Balliol scheme of Life" and
are as follows:
1���Never quarrel.
2���Never explain.
3���Never hate.
4���Never fret.
5���Never disappoint.
6���Never fail.
7���Never fear.
8���Never Drudge.
9���Never spare.
10���Never tell.
11���Never detract.

FAIR PLAY FOR MR. MANSON
Next time Mr. William Manson is at his devotions he should pray like Talleyrand, "Save me from my friends."
After challenging him for a week to come out before the public and make
a statement to clear up the charge that he had led both sides in the recent temperance campaign to believe he Wife on their side, we were willing to let the matter
drop. His silence we were satisfied had showed the public that he was afraid to
meet the challenge, and there is no honor in beating a dead lion..
At this stage of the mutter, the Journal in its foolish little way comes out with
a comment on the matter which revives the whole subject. The Journal speaking
of the Scott Act issue, accuses us of the "audacity to daily act as a censor with
respect to what private individuals should do in the matter."
What a foolish little Journal not to know that the minute a man announces
his candidature for office he ceases to be a private individual and becomes a public
character. Mr. William Manson, the only gentleman whom we pilloried in the
matter will not be a private citizen until January 12th unless he retires earlier.
This paper is very careful to discriminate between what is public and what
is private in a man's life. Had Mr. Manson not been u candidate for public office,
we would have had no right to inquire into his reputation for straightforwardness.
The veil of privacy which will always protect the private acts of private individuals
from public comment in the columns of the Optimist, would have protected him.
It was his candidature, his assurance that he was a fit man to put at the head of
the city's affairs that made it a duty for this paper to sound his veracity. So far
he has emitted no response.
We want to be absolutely fair to Mr. Manson. If the charge is not true he
can easily meet it. Our columns are still open to him. If it will help him to respond,
we will pirt the question in another form: "Is it true that Mr. Manson pledged
his vote to the anti-Scotts but declined to come to their platform aid, stating
that to do so would betray him to the temperance party, who believed him to be
a genuine temperance man, and on whose stip-iort he was relying in the mayoral
campaign on his reputation as a temperance man?"
The Optimist charges that Mr. Manson did make that statement. We are
prepared to give the date, the place, the time, and the gist of the interview. We
are prepared if necessary to give the name of our authority, who is an exceedingly
well known person to citizens of Prince Rupert. As a candidate for our suffrages,
we ask Mr. Manson to meet the charge.   Can anything be fairer''
If the Journal's nviving of thc incident is a token that X?lr. Manson wants
another chance to meet the charge, he can have it. If Mr. Manson is not the discredited pwsisti our infoimunt declares him to be, and wishes to free himself from
the stigma of funking the issue we will gladly give him another uhance.
RALPH SMITH ON THE NAVY
Writing of the strong speech made by Mr. Ralph Smith M. P., (Nanaimo),
in defence of the navy during the debate in the House of Commons on the address���
a portion of which was reproduced in Saturday's Optimist the Toronto Globe says:
"On the Ministerial side the case for the Canadian navy was materially
strengthened by Mr. Ralph Smith of British Columbia, and by Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
who made a general reply to his opponents and critics. Mr. Smith always speuks
well, partly because he prepares carefully and partly because he develops his speeches while he is delivering them. He is free on the one hand from the limitations
of the memorized essay, and on the other from the fatal facility of the mere talker.
His s| s-b yesterday was devoted exclusively to the navy, and mainly to these   APPI Y     .      OPTIMIST
two aspect* of his theme; The popularity of the Canadian navy in British Columbia,' �����*��� vl  ���IHIIuI
and ths. absolute and indefeasible responsibility of the whole House of Commons  -
for the present naval policy of tho Government.   He appealed by actual citation
"to the law and testimony.'   Nobody is likely to take up Mr. Smith's challenge
to name a single British Columbian who is not a strong and convinced supporter
of a Canadian navy.   He instanced particularly Premier McBride of the Pacific
Province, and Clive Phillips Wolley, President of the Navy League.   He quoted
their actual utterances to support his challenge, ai-.d there was not a symptom of
dissent on the Opposition side."

A BUNDLE OF FALSEHOODS
The Empire's statement that the city council is "piling its printing into its
own printing office, without com|ietition," is an entirely false statement. It is
not merely false in spots, it is false all over.
Not only has the council no printing office, but it does not give out its printing
without competition. -As the office which does most of the council's printing, we
can speak with authority. Every job we have secured from the council has been
secured in open competition.
The fact is that the council's by-laws were not printed in any office of their
own. They were printed in the Optimist office. The contract was awarded to
us as the lowest tenderers.
If the Empire is anxious to regain its lost patronage it can very easily do so.
Let it instal an up to date plant like the Optimist, engage the best mechanical
skill, and be content with a fair profit. It will then be able to tender on equal
terms.
Abuse is a very poor substitute for good machinery in landing printing contracts.

Phoenix, B. C, Dec. 16.���At the
regular monthly meeting of the directors of the Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting and Power company, held on
Tuesday last at the branch office of
the company in New York, a dividend
of 1 per cent on the par value of the
stock outstanding was declared, payable
out of the net earnings of the company
on Dec. 30, 1910, to all stockholders of
record at 3 p.m. on December 14. The
transfer books of the company will not
be closed. This is the tweflth dividend
of the company and amounts to $160,000
there being 150,000 shares outstanding
of the par value of $100.
The Granby has no stated periods for
declaring dividends, this being the only
payment this year, and compares with
$2 last year, two dividends of $2 each
in 1908, three at $3 in 1907, four at $3 in
1906, and one of $1 in 1903. With this
disbursement the company has paid
back to its shareholders a total of
$3,928,630.

Apples Are  Man's Natural Food
The apple waa first served by Eve. There is as much difference in apples as in men, and we believe we have some ap-
ples for sale now that aire better than the kind Adam ate and
those were tempting enough. Choice, juicy, finely flavored
apples are grown only in certain places where the climate is
right,  where  their cultivation  is understood  and  perfected.
We know where to get them.   If you like good apples

The Optimist
What it terms "the misdirected zeal
of that inept aggregation known as the
Lord's Day Alliance" has aroused thc
feelings of the usually staid Canadian
Mining Journal.   In its last issue it says:
"In Nova Scotia, in Ontario, and in
British Columbia, mining men have
suffered from the interference of agents
of the Alliance. The latest instance
comes from Cobalt, where the Alliance
sought to close all concentrating mills
at midnight on Saturday, instead of at
seven o'clock on Sunday morning. Incidentally, this could do no good to the
workmen, and would inflict loss on both
employers and employees. Such a
consideration does not in the least
deter the Alliunce.
"There is humour in the situation.
The Alliance no doubt is honestly convinced that Sunday ice-cream, and
Saturday night-work are sapping our
national health. But it overlooks certain
diseased conditions that may not fall
far short of both these horrid crimes.
For instance, new mining camps are
usually infested with houses of ill-repute-
and with purveyors of unspeakably bad
liquor. These cater to a small but
reckless part of the community. To the
majority of operators and workmen
they are unwelcome. We have yet to
hear of the Lord's Day Alliance helping
a new mining camp to remove tInhuman carrion that so often soils its
skirts. That task is left to public
spirited citizens."

Down in the G. T. P. railway yards
today is a big Rotary Snow plow, trie
most interesting unit in the big shipment of rolling stock landed yesterday.
It looks like business now in the yards
with the new workshop and engine shed
roofed and window fitted, and the
lines crowded with rolling stock.
Besides the rotary plow, eleven box
cars, and one colonist car were landed
yesterday. Passenger business over the
first hundred miles of line is certainly
in contemplation, though possibly still
some ways off. As long as there is the
frequent risk of rocks coming down with
snowslides on the line the rotary plow
will not be used over places where this
might occur, but a V plow is due to
arrive with the next consignment of
rolling stock, and as General Superintendent Mehan has stated, constant
effort is being made to render the track
absolutely free from risk of loose rock
falling or sliding with snow.
At Vancouver a whole yard full of
rolling stock is ready to be transferred
to Prince Rupert and may very soon be
on the way here.

while off duty. The weather was mild
and fine, so the walking was good.
The company wants to await the
promise of the city's protection before
they will attempt any service.
HEART FAILED IN SNOW
Sad Death of V. E. Snodgraa, Telegraph Operator
News has just come to hand that
E. V. Snodgras, operator Yukon Telegraph, Andimaul, died while engaged
in line repairs east of his station a few
slays ago.
From particulars so far received!
it is learned that Mr. Snodgras had
been working east of Andimaul on line
trouble and instead of returning to his
refuge house and reporting as is usual
at the close of each day's work attempted
to make his way through the bush to
a railway camp. Becoming exhausted
in the attempt he succumbed to heart
failure on the way.
Snodgras was a native of Iowa and
had been connected with Yukon service
for about one year. He was well known
along the Skeena River.

Brother. Give Substantial Accounts
of Splendid Mining Prospects in
Hazelton District for the Coming
Spring. Will Develop Their Great
Strike Then.
On the way to Vancouver for their
first complete Christmas family reunion for three years, the Harris brothers
Messrs, Hugh, D. A., and W. S. Harris
of Hazelton mining fame, are in the city
today.
After their successful work during the
past months as prospectors and mine
owners in the rich mineral districts of
the Hazelton mountains the Harris
boys are looking forward to a merry
Xmas altogether with the family.
Everything up on the American Boy
group which they have just left, ia in
first class shape, and ready for the
attack in spring when a big development scheme is on foot for this famous
strike. J. A. Mullan remains in charge
of the camp and claims up there while
the brothers are down below. On their
return the work of shaft-boxing will be
started.
Excellent accounts are given by Hugh
Harris and his brothers regarding the
various properties on the Hazelton
Nine Mile Mountain with all of which
they arc expertly intimate. "Lead
King" shapes splendidly. "Sunrise" is
being developed and shows excellent
results. A. McKew and Angus Stewart's
"Canadian Girl" is a very fine property,
and a thVce foot strike of splendid ore
is reported from Glen Mountain.
Faulkner's "Four Mile" property is
also reported by the Harris boys to be
a promising claim and they are most
enthusiastic regarding Hazelton district
mining properties generally for the
coming spring.

Winnipeg, Dec. 16.���No wheels turned

meeting last night when the men declared a strike because the company
would not reinstate the men dismissed
Before the Beak this morning Gilbert
Sparrow perched himself quite chirpily
charged with being a bird os passage
having no permanent nesting place or
roost for the night. He had no chicken
feed to help him out when he felt peckish,
and looked a bit ruffled and twittery.
Unable to pipe an explanation this
particular Sparrow, will be caged until
Tuesday, unless in the meantime some
kind old bird with a bill worth $100
comes to the rescue, when released on
bail, poor Sparrow will be allowed once
more to spread his wings and flutter
forth from behind the bars of his cage.

Some Timely Advice
Don't make costly presents to a woman
For, if you do,
She, being human,
Will think a darnsitcmore of the presents
than she will of you.
Act, then, the sage's part,
Modest priced and few;
Then her sunny heart
Will  flutter round the presents for a
minute, then fly to you.

20th Century Brand Clothes are tailored expressly to meet the demand occasioned by this attitude towards dress. They express the true spirit of fashion. This is one of the newest achievements in good clothes-making and one of the most difficult. These are also the handsomest Christmas
presents one can find.

ACROSS AFRICA
IN MOTOR BOAT
YOUNC AUSTRIAN OFFICER WILL
ATTEMPT CREAT JOURNEY
Lieut. Crater's Boat la Specially
Built for Purpose and Can Be
Cycled Across the Land Patchea.
Vienna, Dec. 17. ���Lieut. Paul Gratez,
the young Austrian officer who made
the first journey across Africa in a
motor car, is about to make a similar
journey in a motor boat.
He expects to start from Chinde on
the east coast. After descending die
7ambesi and the Shire to Lake Nyassa,
he will reach the watershed dividing
the rivers which flow to the east from
those which flow to the west.
His motor boat will be carried overland for a distance of about twenty
miles. A kind of bicycle carriage has
been constructed for the overland journey, which will enable the boat to be
pushed across country with ease, even
if there are no roads.
The boat will then be taken down the
Fife and the Ctfambezi rivers to the
unexplored Bangualo Lake. Lieut. Gratez Btatcs that this lake has never
been traversed by a European. He
passed near it on his motor car journey,
but the natives refused to allow him
to make a voyage on the lake in a canoe,
as they declared it was guarded by
enormous serpents and filled with water
la-asfclisufciis.
