 The Priikfc Rupert Optimist

Prince Rupert, B.C.. Tuesday, December 13, 1910.
Price, five Cents
idience Took Part in the Fun-Making���Mr. Blake-
nore Accuses Rev. Mr. Kerr of Threatening to Excommunicate Those Voting Against Scott Act
He construed the words of Mr. Kerr as
meaning that those who did not vote
for the Scott Act would be unchurches!
or excommunicated. "On Wednesday
we shall know which of you has timed
his back on Christ." These were the
words of the reverend gentleman and
he thought they went too far, and expressed *he hope that no one would
feel himself bound to act by them. To
excommunicate a man because he did
not see eye to eye with his pastor was
an outrageous assumption.
Mr. Blakemore also went after Dr.
Spencer for not coming to defend his
ct>se in answer to the repeated invitations
of the League.
Dme amusing  incidents  and  interims enlivened the tone of the Anti-
Act campaigners' meeting in the
press Theatre last night.    On one
|iappy occasion Mr. Blakemore who
sweeping   everything   before him
ed to indicate the generous number
apporters on the platform and asked:
all know these men;   what other
rest have they to serve but that of
| public?"
ack came the inevitable retort like
flag thunder: "Their own," and the
tting laughter clinched the effect
ot the truth of the point.

ons from the stigma of such assoc'a-

Criticized Mr. Kerr
Ir. Blakemore devoted a portion of
speech to criticizing a portion of
Rev. Mr.  Kerr's Sunday sermo.n
An Anarchical Idea
At the close of the official part of the
meeting Mr. D. 0 Keyser, a labor man,
took the platform but as he opened with
an offensive personal reference to Mr.
Blakemore the meeting exerted its
right not to hear h-m.
The best fun of all was prov:dcd by
the appearance of a comely youth who
declared 'n vehement tones that he was
an anarchist. His announcement was
received with a roar of laughter In which
he joined heartily. On recovering he
expounded the not unreasonable theory
that the best way to control the liquor
traffic was to let anybody who cared
make liquor and sell it. Let it be open
and above board with no restr'ct-on
save as to quality.
Mr. W. Benson presided over the meeting, and the other speakers were Dr.
Mclntyre, and Mr. D. \V. Morrissey.
Vancouver Man Owning Lots on
First Avenue Is Anxious About
Culvert Construction There. Unconventional Letter to Council.
Two new hats are offered to the city
engineer, and one to each member of
council, if the covering timbers being
put over the dry stone culvert in the
deep fill on First avenue last more than
five years.
In great concern over an idea of his
that spruce timbers are being used
here instead of cedar, Chas. Bennett, a
Vancouver man and owner of property
on First avenue, has written to the city
council about it. His letter couched in
unconventional terms, but evidently in
earnest is being considered by the
streets committee.
Aid. Lynch stated that the city engineer had planned to use cedar for this
work which was intended to endure for
from twenty to twenty-live years after
which term no doubt the city would be
arranging for a brick lined culvert of
' larger size there.
No great expectations were raised in
council over the prospect of possessing
new hats in five years if the culvert
covering gives way. It was felt thut
Colonel Davis would be able to resist
the temptation to put in less lasting
timber even if he had been offered three
hats when the culvert caved in instead
of only two.
Young men who have votes remember
the bar has slain millions uf young men.
Cut it out by voting for the Canada
Temperance Act.
Mr. W. J. Faris Says He Will Give $100 to Charity if
His Statements are Proved Incorrect���Fun is
Poked at Dr Clayton's Argument
After waiting twenty minutes for
the Citizens' League speakers to arrive
for a return debate, the temperance
party last, night decided to UBe the
occasion for a campaign meeting. A
large audience had gathered in anticipation of the debate, and all stayed on
to listen to the speeches.
Rev. F. W. Kerr who opened the
speech making devoted himself to
answering a letter-writer in the Optimist
who had sent "Some Questions for Mr.
Kerr to Answer." To the letter writer's
plea for liberty, Mr. Kerr replied that
liberty had its boundaries. No one hud
liberty to do anything that was against
the common welfare.
Mr. W. J. Fatis of Vancouver, also
replied to his critics. He said he would
have people know he was not an "in-
lerlopi-r from Fargo." He was a British-
born Canadian citizen, who had left a
prosperous business with a turnover of
over $30,000 a year in North Dakota
to return to Canada. When he returned,
he came like pedigreed stock "duty
free." He declared that Dr. Mclntyre
when he said he did not know whether
one of the places he cited was Grand
Forks or East Grand Forks, showed
he knew nothing of what he was talking
about. The conditions in the two places
were as wide asunder its the polec. Mr.
Faris maintained that every assertion
he had made in the debate with Mr.
Blakemore was undisproved. He knew
every fact of which he spoke and would
give $100 to any Prince Rupert charity
if a angle statement of his could bc
disproved.   He complained that by thc
condition imposed in the debate at
Mclntyre Hall, he was prevented from
replying to Mr. Blakemore and from
pointing out that gentleman's errors of
Mr. V.'. E. McLean resented Dr.
Clayton's superior assumption that "newcomers" should not be allowed to speak
nbout the temperance issue. He woi-
dered if that tooth-puller after looking
in his patients' mouths ever said: 'Tan
very sorr.y but I can't fill your teeth.
You have the earmarks of a newcomer,
and I couldn't think of doctoring your
teeth for you."
After an effective short speech from
Mr. W. R. Morrissey, Rev. W. H.
McLeod wus called on and delivered
an impassioned address en the attitude
of organized labor to the bar. He
quoted from a large number nf famous
labor leaders and urged all workingmen
to follow their lend, and vote against
the bar.
Tenders to Be Called for Two Million

THAN UNDER LICENSE. Of course the new Canada Temperance Act will make
it much easier to keep the Blind Pigs down, BUT THEY WILL OPERATE JUST
THE SAME. It would be as easy to stop water running down hill than to close

Snowslide Puts Temporary Stop to
Service From Vancouver
The telegraph service connecting Prince Rupert and Vancouver was interrupted yesterday through a rather
severe snowslide which disconnected the
current. The breakdown occurred some
sixty miles up the line. As soon as the
stoppage occurred a gang was dis
patched to locate it and have a remedy
effected with all possible speed.
Manager Dowling of the local tele
graph office states that the interruption
Is not a serious one and that a few hours
will suffice to put the line in perfect
operation again.
In the meantime the news of   the
south cannot get through so that the
conditions of the British elections and
other important mnttcrs that would
have been dealt with in our issue of
today will have to be held over till
tomorrow. A snowslide is one of those
revolutionary elements in nature which
are subject to no law nnd from which
there can be no redress and therefore
Prince Rupert must, accept its temporary
isolation with becoming forbearance.
Section One Improvements Can Now
Go Ahead
Arrangements have been concluded
by the finance committee for the fundB
necessary for carrying on the improvements contemplated in Section 1, and
for which tendcts have been considered.

A Tast of Life's Value.
The standard of life progresses from
the demands of mere existence to those
of comlort; in this progression from
expenditure for existence to expenditure
for comfort and pleasure come the great
differentiations of society. When one
possesses money over and above that
which suffices for mere existence, he
emphasizes bis real value of life by his
purchase of comforts. He may buy
cream cakes or terrapin, to please his
palate; he may buy a hammock or an
automobile, to please his love of ease
in motion; he may buy a graphophone
or an opera ticket, to please his ear;
he may buy gay lithographs or beautiful
pictures, to please his eye and adorn
his home. Where he belongs may be
determined by the manner in which
he spends this comfort-margin of his
income. The wise woman will exercise
care and judgment in such expenditure,
will spurn all luxuries of food, all forms
of comfort that weaken the physical or
moral character.
their children to understand the world
better and th world to better understand
the little ones. It could easily be done
if only greater sympathy were shown.
Referring to Worsdsworth's well known
lines about children, he asks whence
they came if not from God? Where was
heaven if not in the vicinity of the cradle
and the playroom? What could be more
like paradise then the happiness ol the
child? In childhood the flesh, bone and
nerve was merely the canvas upon
which the tapestry* w-as woven, the
science the loom that wove the pattern.
However wise and just they might be in
dealing with their children they would
appear to them as ogres unless their
souls radiated sympathy and love, which
were to the child heart as the rays of
the June sun were to the budding rose.
It was not the child nature, but man and
woman culture that was really needed.
The child was unspoiled when delivered
into their hands. The difficulty waa that
they did not understand it.

The Incomparable Ellen
In speaking of her recent tour and
the discourses on "Shakespeare's Heroines Triumphant."  Mias Ellen Terry
recently  said:    "When   I   talk   about
Ophelia oi Juliet or Lady Macbeth, I
may convey very little;  but if I quote
their own words, action, gesture, voice,
I they all help me to make them living
��� women to my audiences."   Mias Terry's
j New York and Chicago appearances have
proved   veritable  triumphs.     In   New-
York it was said of her performance:
"This marvelous woman, with thc gift
of youth, made all her younger hearers
young again.   While she was once more
! revealing  Portia some of  us thought

last.     Yesterday   she   looked,   spoke,
moved, as she did then; the rhythm of
her, the music of her, the unmatched
charm of her swept away the decades."

Precipitation Reaches 3.70 in Forty-
Eight   Hours
Who said Prince Rupert was going
dry? For him no monument of truth
can ever be erected. Yes, we mean
rain. During the past forty eight
hours or more there has been an idea
afloat that we were really having some
The report of the weather clerk confirms the suspicion.  This is what he says
in his cold figurative way. For the
forty-eight hours between five o'clock
Siinilay morning and five o'clock this
morning the precipitation was 3.70
When that dead meaningless numeral
is placed in the show case for comparison
it assumes a tremendous significance. It
means that one thirtieth of the year's
total ra!nfall arrived in a great hurry
between the hours stated as thc total
prncip'tation for the year to date is in
the neighborhood of 100 inches. IHE   PRINtE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

Another twenty-four hours have passed, and still Mr. Williem Manson is in
hiding. He has not dr.red to come out and answer the plain question, whether
or no it is true that he has secretly pledged himself to both parties in the temperance
campaign. Within eight hours of the publication of this article it will be too late
for Mr. Manson to make any statement at all. He will be a discredited man politically. The stigma of resting quiet under the accusation of double dealing���the
roost damning ch.-rge that can lay against any public man���will attach to him
if he still dfclines to break the silence.
Because of what the occasion means to Mr. Manson we are anxious to give
him the uttermost opportunity to rehabilitate himself. Day after day we have
Offered him the courtesy of our columns. That opportunity he has chosen to
allow to go by default, rather than openly, and in the presence of witnesses declare
his real position.
We will give Mr. Manson one last chance. Tonight there are to be two mass
meetings of the citizens. One, promoted by the Citizens' League, will be held in
the Empress Theatre: the other, promoted by the Local Option Association will
be held in the Majestic Theatre. Alderman Mobley has already been allowed
to state his position at one of these meetings. A similar privilege could not be
denied to Mr. Manson. To the platform of whichever is the side he is really
supporting with his vote, his utterances would be welcomed.
Both sides are suspicious that the Mayoral candidate has given them "the
double cross." They would welcome a public statement from him. Will Mr.
Manson accept
This is the last chance, Mr. Manson. It is a fair one. Upon your acceptance
or rejection of it depends your political honor, and your future usefulness to the

The question of how the use and
traffic in liquor may best be controlled
was prominently before the Provincial
Legislature at its last session when
the present Provincial law, admitted to
be the most drastic and at the same
time most workable on any British
statute book, passed unanimously.
This law came into force on the 1st
August last, and il has since been
vig rously, honestly and efTe tively enforced as no prohibition law ever has
been or ever can be.
For the people of Prince Rupert to
vote for the proposal presented to them
Wednesday, is therefore indisputably
to vote want of confidence not only
in the Government of the day, but in
the Legislature, and in the electorate
of British Columbia which sent this
Legislature to Victoria���to do the very
thing which champions of the Canada
Temperance Act desire to mischievously
undo, i. e., pass common sense laws,
with the justice and utility of which
a.l men may agree, and then enforce
these laws thoroughly, impartially, and
To endorse the proposition submitted
Wednesday is not only to declare the
Government and Legislature of British
Columbia incompetent to administer
the affairs of the Province, but in its
plain and unavoidable sequence, to
declare the people of this Province
incapably unfit for representative gov
ernment, since the Legislature is the
creation of the people.
adian  Momthly  shows  that  we  were
safe in making this offer:
"No  doubt  the teetotal  party  will
endeavor to make some capital out of
the fact that the Lord Mayor of London,
England, for the .coming year is a total
abstainer.   Sir Vezey Strong is perhaps
the second  holder of this  high office
who has been  an abstainer.    We are
quite pleased to think that the teetotal
party may point triumphantly to such
[ a   splendid   object   lesson,   but   they
i certainly have little to crow over two
j teetotal Lord Mayors in 700 years.   It
| is probable, however, that the teetotal
party   will   msiderate   their   transports
when  they read what  is the practice
of the new Lord Mayor.    He believes
that total abstinence is best for him-
sell, but inasmuch as England is a free
country, he does not force views that are
personal  to  himself upon  others.    As
regards   his   official   position,   he   has
clearly declared what he intends to do.
He will continue to follow his own rule
of conduct, but as for others they will
enjoy  the same liberty  as  he claims
for   himself,   and   wines   and   other
liquors  will  be provided  for  them.
He has always followed the same practice in his own house.   This is an eminently sane way of looking at the matter.
Lord   Mayor  Strong  fully  believes in
the doctrine of personal liberty, and has
also a strong abhorrence of that kind
of teetotaller who, not content with his
own   abstinence,   would   coerce   every
other person in the world into following
his example.    Sir  Vezey  Strong is  a
type of abstainer by no means unknown
in England, one who prefers to teach
by example rather than precept, and
it 's by means of such men that sobriety
in that couhtry is so steadily increasing."
Tins article is inserted by the advocuts>. ssf Local
Option and i. being paid for.
British Columbia's new liquor law is
admitted throughout the Dominion to be
the most drastic legislation on the
question in any British country, and the
most rigidly enforced. Ontario, after
long experience with the impracticable
Scott Act is now adopting similar
legislation. What folly then to talk of
substituting an impracticable, extremists' policy incapable of enforcement if
Was Considered by the City Council
Last Night
Any vote for the Scott Act. is a vote
in straight condemnation of the Government and the solid Legislation of the
Province, which, fresh from the people
adopted the most stringent liquor law
on any British statute book, and a law
which is most rigorously enforced.
Considerable attention was given by
the City Council last night to the final
stages of the Election By-law, the Curfew By-law, and the Liquor License
Amendment By-law. Most time was
spent upon the latter which is being
carefully drawn up so as to leave no
loopholes for the escape of the unscrupulous.
Furniture-man, grocery-man, coal-
dealer, crockery-man, clothing-man, lumber-man, working-man���yes, cigar-man
and liquor-man���follow the dray to the
licensed premises and brothels and take
note of the small percentage of bus'ness
you receive from them and thc large
amount of your cash they export.
How do collections in 1910 compare
with 1909.
The liquoi party advertise Admiral
Evans' verdic' about prohibition ports
being so bad. Why not quote one of
our own best generals? A man comes
up from Victoria and on a public platform in our city says that whieh every
member of the Council and Police
Commission ought to resent: "that
Prince Ru|*ert had a world-wide,���yea,
a Dominion-wide, notoriety for its
blind pigs."
Put in contrast to this "knockmg"
the testimony of a man of whom our
Donrn'on Is proud- General Otter visited Prince Rupert last July and said:
"There has been one thing which
impressed itself upon me while in Prince
Rupert and that is the orderliness and
industry of the citizens of the twon. I
have been in all parts of your town and
you might say, at all hours, yet despite
the fact that it is a frontier town and
having a large percentage of railroad
laborers amongst its transient citizens,
it is the most orderly and best behaved
town I've ever been in."
Such were thc v ords of General Otter
on his departure from Prince Rupert on
the Princess Royal last Saturday morning and coming from a man of General
Otter's character and position meant
much, after having spent a week in
Prince Rupert and surrounding district
This is about the highest compliment
that could be paid to the efficiency of
thc police officials and those responsible
for the law and order in this town and
district. It is rather refreshing to hear
this genuine and unbiased praise in this
the regime of "knocking."
The Whiskey League says: "The
Scott Act cannot be enforced." This is
the last gasp of the Anarchist. Send the
imbecile to the "Week" Asylum.
Druggists of Prince Rupert! How do
you like your classification? Did you
hear him say that you will be blind pigs
1 and  the  drunkard-makers,  under  no-
I license?
When "the genial doctor" gsu-s hack

Parents   in   Winnipeg   Enquire   Regarding Him
Maine and Kansas, the first states of
   the American union to adopt pronibitory
sacrifice | legislation, have by their votes on the
seventh of November, unqualifiedly
declared such legislation unworkable
and a failure in its working out.
It looks as if the Press Committee of
the Local Option League needs a lesson
in the art of "politr letter-writing."
Every communication to their party
from the anti-Scott Act workers in
connection with public meetings has
been written as from the Citizens'
League and signed by an officer or
authorized representative of the League.
The Press Committee replies to these
letters through the press, misrepresenting
the facts and attributing the letters to
"the liquor men." This is a "fine
courtesy" surely!
From Winnipeg comes an enquiry
regarding Harold Harvie a young man
who is believed to have left Vancouver
last July for Prince Rupert. His description is given as follows: Age 26;
height 6 feet; dark hair and eyes;
weight 180 to 190 lbs. He is familiar
with the hardware business, and a
member of the Order of Elks. When
he lei I Vancouver he wrote to h-s
parents that he -mended to go to Prince
Rupert nad would send his address
there later. Notlrng has since been
heard of h;m, and his parents are anxiously enquiring. Information regarding
him handed to the Optimist will be sent
to his relatives.
It is a new departure for Canadian
citizens to take their lessons in "British
fair play" from aliens. No wonder that
Prince Rupert citizens are unable to
recognize the brand.

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 thc 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 exceoding six months, with or without hard labor.
Sail* for
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
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 y>ears, and means the
life or death of the city.

Berlin, Dec. 10.���Not many months
ago an Englishman named Gerald du
Maurier created a tremendous sensation among his countrymen with a play
portraying the "German Peril" which
he believes is hanging over Great
Just as Mr. du Maurier's play���"An
Englishman's Home"���was designed to
arouse Britons to the necessity for preparation against invasion by the Kaiser's forces, so is a still newer play���
"The Typhoon"���by Melchoir Lengyel,
a young Hungarian, intended to stir
the white races into preparation against
a Mongolian invasion.
"The Typhoon" has already had a
most successful run in Berlin, where
it has been the season's dramatic sensation, and now plans are being made
for taking it to the United States. For
political reasons, however, some of
the men interested in the trans-Atlantic
production are known to think it may
be a trifle to peppery and that perhaps
it may be necessary to tone it down in

On a journey through the South not
long ago, Wu Ting Fang was impressed
by the preponderance of negro labor
in one of the cities he visited. Wherever
the entertainment committee led him,
whether to factory, store, or suburban
plantation, all the hard work seemed to
be borne by the black men.
Minister Wu made no comment at the
time, but in the evening when was he
a spectator at a ball given in his honor,
after watching the waltzing and two-
stepping for half an hour, he remarked to
his host*.
"Why don't you make the negroes
do that for you, too?"
A young lady whose beauty is equal to
her bluntness in conversation was visiting a house where other guests were

turned on matrimonial squabbles. Said
the eligible parti: "I hold that thecorrect
thing 'or the husband is to begin as he
Intends to go on. Say that the question
was one of smoking. Almost immediately I would show my intentions by lighting
a cigar and settling thc question forever."
"And I would knock the thing out of
your mouth!" cried the imperious beauty.
"Do you know," rejoined the young
man, "I don't think you would be
Fish Maid Lands    Four    Thousand

Four thousand pounds of halibut.
That is the quantity landed on the
Prince Rupert wharf yesterday by the
Fish Maid. It may not be a record
but considering the site of the craft
and the recent weather conditions
it is certainly phenomenel.
The Fish Maid is one of the few boats
that have been using the near-by waters
rtiently and her extensive catch seems
to justify the skipper's faith in their
fruitfulness. At the present time most
of the fishermen are operating further
north or down off Vancouver. The
Fish Maid's catch has been packed and
shipped to Vancouver market.

Looking Forward
Though wintry blizzards soon will whizz
From Mist ward and from nor'ward
'Mid all our woes there always is
Some joy in looking forward.
A fire when you are cold and blue
Is something to look forward to.
Though work inspires aversion in
Your bosom, it assuages
The pain if you with cheerful grin
Look forward to your wages.
The health, if you are down with "flu"
Is something to look forward to.
If you're in love 'tis hard to part
From her, for even one day,
But, Oh, it soothes the suffering heart
To think you'l' meet on Sunday.
When she'll bestow a kiss on you,
That's something to look forward to.
When to the dentist's you repair
And moan "This toothache's frightful"
Your feelings as you take the chair
Are not at all delightful.
But say, the blissfu' ease in view!
That's something to look forward to.
Life always has some joy ahead
To cheer each troubled sinner
Rest after toil, a pleasant bed,
And every day a dinner.
And Christmas which will soon be due
Is something to look forward to.
Election fever fills the air
And polling days come nearer
Mind, exercise your votes with care
So make the issues clearer
Peace and Prosperity for you
There's somethsng to look forward to.
Frank A. Ellis.
