Ienerous donations to

tsonic Lodge Promises to Endow a Ward in Luxuriant
Style and G. T. P. Come Through With Donation of Six Lots for Hospital Purposes
jit never rains but it pours." This
j idle compliment to the contortions
he weather cock but merely a more
apt reference to the flood of
things that came the way of the
["hospital at the meeting of the board
erday. First a delegation from the
onic Lodge organized in the town
nated with becoming modesty that
were prepared to endow one of
[wards in the new building, subject
concession, the trifling nature of
jch is not likely to prove an obstacle;
then came the G. T. P. with a
ation of six lots on the present site,
jot to the condition that the said
I are not used for any other purpose,
i last named donation waa received
i grateful thanks and the agreement
a?sl by the president and secretary;
and in connection with the proposition
of the Masons a resolution was passed
approving of the idea and cordially
thanking the promoters. This step was
taken in view of the fact that the members of the delegations were not in a
position to table any definite proposition.
Their offer was merely a tentative one
made with the view to discovering the
attitude of the board upon the subject,
and the resolution which was passed will
give them the neceasary footing to base
their plans upon.
The sederunt consisted of President
Kirkpatrick, Mr. D. Stewart, Mr. P. J.
Palmer, Mr. H. H. Clarke. Mr. William
Manson, M. P. P., Alderman Pattullo,
and Mr. Cuthbert the secretary.

TONTINUED ON PAGE 4
(Special to the Optimist)
Seattle, Dec. 7.���The home of the
Italian Consul, Dr. Chilione, in this
city, was today the scene of an at.
tempted outrage on the part of the
Black Hand. The members of the gang
succeeded in entering the house and
were in the very act of executing their
nefarious enterprise when the inmates
were apprised of their presence in the
house and took immediate steps to
frustrate the dastardly villians.
Unfortunately none of the men who
took part in the attempt were arrested.
None of the intended victims of the
household were injured.
SKEENA SALMON CANNERS
IN ON IMPORTANT DEAL
Two Canneries Have Leased Townsite of Kirbyville and
Will Instal Plant to Revolutionize Salmon  Industry���Will  Have  Big Gasoline Fleet
(Special Correspondence)
Vancouver, Deo. 6.���A deal has just
been completed leasing the townsite of
Kirbyville on the Skeena river to the
representatives of two of the leading
canneries on the Skeena. This is said
to bc the first move towards revolutionizing the salmon fishing industry.
Will Build Big Warehouse
Kirbyville is situated on the east side
of the river between Claxton and Carlisle canneries. It was plotted as a
townsite some years ago and a wharf
built but was never put on the market.
The lessees intend erecting a large
fireproof warehouse for storing gasoline
which will be brought up from California
in tank boats.
All Gasoline Boats
It is rumored that the two canneries
interested in the lease intend putting
gasoline engines in all their fishing
boats, and this large warehouse for
storage is necessary.
Will Get Big Hauls
The object of having power in the
fishing boats is to give the fishermen
the opportunity of fishing several drifts
on one tide and it is confidently expected
that the increased catch will more than
pay for the big outlay of purchasing
several hundred gasoline engines.
They Decline to Speak
When interviewed by the Optimist
the managers of the two canneries
would neither confirm nor deny the report, although they admitted having
leased Kirbyville.

TRUTH FROM KANSAS
As Kansas has been frequent-
ly^quoted in connection with prohibition, it may be as well to
quote a few of the reasons why
prohibition is claimed to be a
failure:
The ������Standard," Wellington.
Kansas, says:
"It does not prohibit."
"It iB not enforced in a half
dozen counties in the state."
"It simply transfers the sale of
liquor from licensed saloon-keepers to wholesalers  and  brewers.
L  liquor Itssti
era to whol
eaa  si
and the retail business into the
hands of jointists, boot-leggers
and men who have no interest in
good order, morality or taxation."
"Men who talk prohibition in
the church receive whisky by express."
"A contempt for ail law is bred
and fostered by lawlessness."
"Fruitless efforts to convict
known offenders roll up taxes upon law-abiding citizens:"
"It retards   immigration   and
sends lovers of personal liberty
to other States."
"It causes people to drink regularly at home who otherwise
would only drink occasionally in a
saloon."
"It is built on a theory contrary to human nature."
THE SCOTT ACT is a hybrid
localized prohibition measure
which only professes to aim at
suppressing retail drinking but
furnishes facilities for wholesale
drinking.

Aa Damages From C. P. R. Conductor
Who Made Him Jump Train
(Special to the Optimist)
Brantford, Dec. 8. -That trumps are
dangerous things to handle has been
demonstrated in unmistakable form to
one of the C. P. R. conductors who
plies this city. Finding an alleged hobo,
named Lloyd Brown c.\scom-ed cosily
in the compartments of his train he
ordered him to jump. As there did not
appear lo be any feasible alternative
al the moment Brown jumped with the
result that he broke an arm. The
injured limb became so bad thut it had
to be amputated. It then struck the
hobo that things were not exactly
evenly balanced between him und the
conductor so he went to law for redress
and caused a slight storm by landing a
cool $1000 as damages.

London, Dec. 8. -The llowing tide of
Liberalism continues to rims and looks

PAY-AS-YOU-ENTER CARS
CAUSE RIOT IN TORONTO
Fifteen Thousand People Attend Protest Meeting then
Rush Out on Streets Wrecking Cars and Injuring
People���Police Powerless to Cope With Them
(Special to the Optimist)
Toronto, Ontario; Dec. 8.���Desperate
riots ure taking place here in connection
with the newly installed pny-us-you-enter
car service. A meeting of protest was
held in thc Muecsy Hall last night
and was attended by about fifteen
thousand people. As a result of the
inflammatory speeches thc people became
so incensed against the system thut
immediately the meeting was over
they rushed out on the streets, atop-ied
the cars, cleared out the passengers
and then proceeded to wreck thc vehicles.
Wrecked the Street Cars
In a very short time eleven cars were
completely dismantled without Biitiating
the people's thirst for destruction.   For
two solid hours they kept up u continual
siege.
Police Were Powerless
Mayor (icury wus summoned hastily
from his residence to try and quell the
disturbance but his appeumnce had no
effect und the police reserves were
hopelessly inadequate to cope with
the sudden outburst.
Eighteen Persona Injured
When at last hostilities were over it
was found that eighteen persons had
been seriously injured in the melee.
Many of them hud to be taken to the
hospital for treatment. Besides the
eleven cars which were completely
wrecked fifty more were damaged considerably. ThE   PRINCE   KUPERT    OPTIMISE

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 ita 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.
Mrs. "Tay Pay"
That distinguished newspaperman and
parliamentarian, T. P. O'Connor, who
recently toured through Canada addressing several meetings on behalf of the
Home Rule movement in Great Britain,
is wedded to a lady with tastes like unto
his own. Mrs. O'Connor has written a
book, entitled "I Myself" in which she
has something to say about Englishmen
U husbands and American women as
wives. But her own marriage was not
quite the usual international affair, for
"T. P." is an Irishman, and his wife
has a great deal of French blood in her
veins. She was born in Virginia before
the Civil War, and saw some of thc awful
horrors which led to it; she tells a fearful
story of a female slave who "from her
shoulders to her heels had literally been
flayed alive.
No wonder thc spirited, strong-willed
child proclaimed herself an abolitionist.
After the war she wished to go the stage,
but her father forbade it, to her lasting
sorrow. She got work as a journalist
before long, and presently became
reader to Messrs. Harpers. When she
went to England she met Mr. O'Connor,
who calmly, after a few weeks, produced
a special license "for our marriage the
next day." The event was deferred for
the moment, but was inevitable; and
since then Mrs. O'Connor���no whit
inferior to her capable husband in brains,
and acumen���has seen everything and
known everybody.
Naturally, in a book with a title like
"I Myself," Mrs. O'Connor's own
thoughts, hopes nnd feelings play a large
part���and rightly, from the reader's
point of view, because they reveal a
clever and many-sided personality. But
there are stories of other people too.
Perhaps the happiest is that which
chronicles a toast-master's aside to Mr.
Pett Ridge at a public dinner: "Mr.
Pett Ridge, will you speak now, or shall
we let them enjoy themselves a little
longer?"
Mrs. O'Connor has naturally been in
touch with more serious things, though
she was not admitted to the inner circles
of the Irish party. She tells how once
after a meeting she found in a committee
room an unfinished draft, never used, of
a declaration supporting Parnell after
his fall: "We stand flrmly and unitedly"
by him, it ran.
Sarah Bernhardt'! Debut
A little girl, as Sarcey relates, once
presented herself at the Paris Conservatoire in order to pass the examination
for admission. All she knew was the
fable of the "Two Pigeons," but she
had no sooner recited the lines���
"Deux pigeons s'aimaient d'amour
tendre.
L'un d'eaux, s'ennuyant au logis���"
than Auber stopped her with a gesture.
"Enough," he said. "Come here, my
child."
The little girl, who was pale and thin,
but whose eyes gleamed with intelligence approached him with an air of
assurance.
"Your name is Sarah?" he said.
"Yes, sir," was the reply.
"You are a Jewess?"
"Yes, sir, by birth, but I have been
baptized."
"She must be admitted," Baid Auber,
turning to his colleagues.
Thus Sarah Bernhardt entered the
conservatoire. She was born at Paris
in 1847. Her father, after having her
baptized, had placed her in a convent,
but she had already secretly determined
to become an actress.
A Clft to the Queen
All the women in the Empire bearing
the same name as the queen of England
or the common varities of it, Maria,
May or Marion, are to be asked to
contribute to a coronation gift for
Queen Mary. The sums given may
vary from a penny to a pound. The
idea is said to have originated with
the Marchioness of Bute, who recently
issued a notice asking that every woman
and girl living in and belonging to the
Island of Bute and Cumbrae whose
lirst name is Mary should sen to her
their full names and addresses. A list
of the contributors but not the amounts
given is to be kept.
As the gifts will be quite voluntary
and as there will be no competition in
the amounts given, the idea seems a
good one. The queen of England from
all that we can learn of her is a good
woman worthy of the esteem of all
women of British birth. It is not unnatural that those who are called by
her own sweet name should feel a
special call to unite in doing her honor.
It will be interesting to learn whether
the scheme is carried out, and what its
result will be.
Our Daily Recipe
Banana Salad Dressing.���One table
spoon butter, one tablespoon flour, one-
half cup sugar, one cup milk, one egg,
two ripe bananas and one cup whipped
cream. Rub the butter and flour together with a sptssin and stir in the
sugar. Put the milk in a double boiler
and bring to the boiling point, then add
butter, sugar and flour mixture and cook
until it thickens, stirring often. When
it boils stir the beaten egg into it, cook
three minutes and add the bananas,
which have been rubbed lo a smooth
paste. Remove from the fire and stir
briskly. Let the mixture cool and when
it is cold stir into it the whipped cream.
This is a delicious dressing to use on
fruit salads.

The Citizens' Defence Committee of
knsas recently commissioned the editor
he foremost  newspaper of Kansas
to make an unbiased investigation
Cansas conditions under prohibition,
reported,   after   several   months'
earch,   that   "the   history   of   pro-
bttion in Kansas is a story of graft
the subsidizing of the officials who
ve taken solemn oath to uphold the
(institution, and a story of blackmail
id eternal shame."   He found Kansas
Kansas, a shining example.    In
|is report he said:   "In the year 1906
Merchantile Club, an organization
���'liich represented the business men, put
brward a scheme for a great boom in
building.   Minnesota avenue, the principal thoroughfare, hitherto had been
kllowed to drag along in a ragged condition and with no lights as night.   In
the boom, however, the various merchants  along  the  avenue  caught the
kpirit of progressiveness and soon build-
pugs were  being constructed and  old
cs remodeled.   As a result, the streets
Iwere us beautiful as one could wish
���There were new offices and buildings,
Inuw Btore buildings���in fact, everything
(looked   new.     And   all   were   readily
I tenanted.   Go into Kansas City, Kansas,
���today, and walk along Minnesota avenue,   look   at   those   handsome   oflice
buildings and inviting store buildings.
Count the number of the glass   fronts
i or windows on which there are 'for rent'
signs.    Ask the  pabsersby  why these
pretty   buildings   are   vacant.     Their
answer will invariably be: 'Prohibition'."
Prohibition and Stimulation
Dr. A. P. Grinnell, of Burlington, Vermont, made in 1902, a critical investigation of the consumption of stimulants in
that state, chiefly the narcotic drugs, and
of so-called medicines into which such
drugs enter as components of chief
efficacy. The difficulties or the inquiry
wire very great, for the reason that those
in possession of the information hesitated to give it, doubtless fearing that it
might lead to enactments interfering
With the most profitable part of their
trade. Only part of the dealers responded
to thc inquiry. From those who did, it
���KM leurnud that they dispensed every
month, of morphine, paragoric or laudanum, what la equivalent to 3,300,00
'loses of opium���the standard for a dose
'"���tog  one-eighth  grain   of  morphine,
one-half ounce of paregoric, and twenty
drops of laudanum. The amount thus,
reported, which by no means covers the
total sales, would give a full dose of
opium daily for half the population of
the state. In one month, the sales from
drug stores in 69 towns of Vermont,
aside from what was dispensed by physicians from their own medicine closets,
included the following items:
Gum opium 47 lbs. 12 oz.
Morphine powders 19 lbs. 16 oz.
Morphine pills 8,838 gr.
Dover powder 26 lbs.
Paregoric 32 gal. 1 qt.

Quinine was also largely used as a stimulant. The amount consumed in Vermont was equivalent to two grains a day
for each adult inhabitatn of the state.
The muriate of cocaine accounted for in
the above table would make over 114
gallons of one per cent solution, which
would give 14,492 people each a fluid
ounce of the dangerous stimulant. Dr.
Grinnell, admitting the incompleteness of
his data, is of the opinion that the totals
reported might be multiplied by five
without exceeding the actual consumption. One little village, so small that it
appears only on the county map, used
every month three and a half pounds of
gum opium, six ounces of morphine, five
pints of paregoric, five pints of laudanum,
and three ounces of quinine powder.
Cocaine Evila in Mississippi
Prohibition under local option laws exists in the greater part of Mississippi.
Since the adoption of this policy, an
alarming growth of the use of cocaine as
a stimulant is reported. So widespread
and demoralizing has this become that
earnest appeals for legislation to check it
are coming from many sections of the
state. While the evil has till recently
been largely among the negroes, it ia
beginning to spread steadily among the
whites, and is causing much apprehension.
The Okolona, Miss., Messenger, of
October 29th, 1902, said:
"The alarming growth of the accursed use of cocaine among thc negroes
of Mississippi has caused the suggestion
to be made that more radical laws
should be enacted for the suppression
of the evil. The cocaine habit is demoralizing the race in this state, and its
growth in recent years has been phenomenal. Thousands of victims have
been found among the negroes, and in
the delta section the habit is almost
general. The drug has a quick and
demoralizing effect, and the negro succumbs quicker to its seductions than a
white man, and when the habit has
fastened upon him he rarely reforms.
"It has been suggested that a law
should be passed making it a crime for
any person to use cocaine except oh a
physician's certificate. In 1900 the
Legislature passed an act forbidding the
sale of the drug except upon a physician's
certificate, but the law is ignored by
nine-tenths of the druggists in thc state
and they sell cocaine to all customers.
"Physicians state that if the habit
among thc negroes is not suppressed and
radical steps to this end taken very
quickly, it will mean the utter ruin, and
final extermination of the race in the
South. In nearly every town can be seen
the victims of the drug, and men and
women alike use it freely.
"The press of the state is taking up thc
subject, and urging the adoption of
some radical method to save thc negro
from self-destruction."
The Silo Habit
In some of the farming districts of
Kansas and Iowa, where local sentiment
had pronounced so strongly agaiDst any
traffic in intoxicating liquors that they
could only be brought in at the risk of
subjecting the importer to prosecution
and persecution, it was noted that
drunkenness of a particularly violent and
insanity-producing kind was largely on
the increase among the farm laborers.
Ultimately the explanation was found
in the fact that the craving for stimulants, which was denied a more reasonable gratification, had led to the tapping
of the vegetable juices of ensilage from
the silos in which an alcoholic fermentation was produced in the vegetable
masses. These juices contained poisonous qualities capable of causing a peculiarly maddening and destructive form of
intoxication.
"For one young man," says thc- New-
York Times, of October 12, 1902, "who
would have defied public opinion by
over-indulgence in liquor obtainable by
purchase, many were destroyed in mind
and body by acquiring the unspeakable
habit of drinking fermented poisons
from the silos. Granted that the alternative presented a choice of evils, it can
scarcely be questioned that well-conducted saloons would have done less harm
than was created by their suppression."
Opium in Iowa
Following the adoption of prohibition
in Iowa, the opium habit grew alarmingly
in that state. So much so, that it attracted the attention of the State Board
of Health, and it was stuted officially
that there were over 4,000 known opium-
eaters in the state who had become
confirmed in the habit.
All prohibitive communities have experienced the same results in a greater
or less degree. Habits of this kind are
carefully concealed as a rule, and it is
difficult to ascertain with accurucy their
true extent. Only t he most pronounced
cases become known to the community,
while the insidious evil is secretly sapping
the vitality of many. It is common
knowledge that the people of Turkey und
Mohammedan countries to whom liquors
are prohibited by religious inhibition are
inveterate consumers of opiates of
various kinds.
It has been the experience, without
exception, that where one form of
st-mulant is denied, another, more
secret, and usually more harmful, is
sought. It is the wiser policy which
permits the sale of stimulants under
state regulation which insures purity,
prevents excess or the use of insidunus
poisons, and the evils of the secret use of
such poisons.

"McBRIDE'S BOY" ON THE G. T. P. ASSESSMENT
"If I am returned as Mayor in the forthcoming election, I will take the
first opportunity to have a settlement of the G. T. P. assessment difficulty
effected."   (Extract from the speech of Mr. William Manson, M. P. P.L
When Mr. William Manson spoke the above lines at his Tuesday evening's
meeting he had his tongue in his cheek. They were among the truest words he has
spoken. If somewhere, concealed from sight, he has a spark of humor in his makeup, how he must have grinned, when the audience applauded the sentiment.
"Take the first opportunity to effect a settlement?" The public may rest
assured he will. That is the reason he is running. That is the reason he must be
opposed by all citizens who value the welfare of the city. Later on, a figure head
Mayor may do, but today a man with a spine is wanted in the Mayor's chair. A
stand-patter of Mr. Manson's type, obedient to the orders of his boss, Hon. Richard
McBride, and Hon. Mr. McBride'a bosses, the corporations, is thc kind of a man
who could be trusted to stand meekly by while the city is being shackled hand
and foot for twenty years or more.
Aa a matter of fact, Mr. William Manson already knows the terms on which
it has been arranged that Prince Rupert is to be tied down. He was present at the
private meeting of the Executive of the Conservative Association where Hon.
Mr. McBride indicated the terms which he wanted to secure on behalf of the
company. Those terms at the lowest possible computation, i. e., on the assumption
tbat the town remains stationary in its growth are equal to a gift of over a million
dollars in cash to the company. In effect it will mean a gift of several millions.
The precise terms and the misleading nature of them, will all be pointed out in the
pages of this journal in due course, should Mr. Manson not dare to admit his part
in the surreptitious scheme.
To the credit of the members of the Conservative executive let it be admitted
that they flatly refused to consent to the demand of Mr. McBride, that the city
be tied up for twenty years. Already some have regretted the final scheme they
were jockeyed into consenting to. That scheme is the one Mr. Manson had in
mind when he put his tongue in his cheek and told his hearers "If I am elected I
will take the first opportunity to huve a settlement of the G. T. P. assessment
difficulty settled."
Pnrty politics have absolutely nothing to do with the municipal welfare of
Prince Rupert. When Mr. McBride, "McBride's boy," and the G. T. P. management pu: their heads together to arrange a satisfactory settlement of the G. T. P.
assessment, let the citizens look out. "McBride's boy" is not a suitable person
for Mayor while thc assessment problem remains to be settled.
GENEROUS DONATIONS TO HOSPITAL
CONTINUED from page 1
Gift From the Masona
The Masonic deputation consisted
of Messrs. D. R. Morrison and A. J.
Morris. They explained that the only
concession which they desired was that
the members of the craft of their families
should have thc privilege of thc ward
to he endowetl by them whenever possible and consistent with the good
government of the institution. It waa
just possible that the luxurious manner
in which they proposed to furnish the
ward would give it a greater revenue
drawing capacity than the others and
they desired that when their members
or families had the use of it they would
be charged nu more than the ordinary
rate of the other wards. In reply to a
question Mr. Morris explained that the
Lodge had no particular desire to use
thc ward as an advertising medium. All
they wanted to identify the wards with
the craft was the installation of a small
plate with the name of the donors
inscribed thereon and placed somewhere within the ward.   The particular
ward which the Lodge is desirous of
endowing is the one on the second floor
facing First avenue. The members of
thc board expressed their gratitude
and suggested that the movement would
be a good example for the other wealthy
bodies in the town to follow. It waa
agreed that the Lodge's definite proposition be brought before the board in
writing.
Gift From the G.T. P.
The generous gift of the G. T. P. waa
conveyed by letter and the articles
of agreement were enclosed. It waa
suggested that some trouble might
ensue in the event of the present site
of the hospital proving unsuitable at
some future time but it was generally
felt that in such a case the G.T.P
would be ready to Biter the agreement
so as to get over thc clause specifying
that the ground bc used for no other
purpose.
Progress at the Hospital
A number of minor matters in connection with the building were reported
upon. The board decided to get on
with the sewerage as speedily as possible
and authorized the Building Committee,
acting in conjuction with the architect,
to take immediate action in the matter.
It was authoritatively stated that the

ALLEGED TORY PLOT
From Page 1
to the effect that in the event of a Tory
defeat that party had a scheme whereby
they would dispute thc authority of
the new parliament. Here is the quotation: "There is a desperate plot afoot.
Forseeing defeat the Tories plan to
dispute the authority of the new parliament. Rosebery is the real leader
of the peers against the people. In
the face of three adverse elections
the peers will still attempt to rule."
Rosebery Not Satisfied
In the opinion of some of the leading
British papers color is given to thia
sensational suggestion by the statement
from Lord Rosebery himself that the
result is not decisive enough to warrant
any government in interfering with
the rights and privileges of the hereditary
house. Mr. Balfour immediately corroborated the great Liberal peer and his
statement is now being used as capital
by the Unionists. Out of the constituencies polled yeaterday the Unionists gained three seats.

the fact that a certain man told him
that he was working for the Scott Act
solely for the purpose of running a
"blind pig." He claimed that he had
been promised a license but the promise
had not been kept, and said: "now I
am going to get even; I'll work for
the Scott Act and if it passes I'll sell
booze in spite of these hotel keepers."
How do the preachers relish the partnership.

Don't Be Bombarded I
That election dodge of bringing in
blind-piggers is an old ruse of
hi'key-men. What sort of decency
IW they���merely for the Bake of an
K'tinn to bring in numbers of such a
���reputable element? Oh, whiskey-
en, we're not for one moment fooled!
��u brought in any number of these
en five months ago so as to lure the
*"l��le to prefer license and give you a
othnld. Now, you're up to the same
game and imagine the people arc
[J"'!��� You forget to notb that for Bt
si ��ix months or possibly eighteen
P'"hs, thc license-regime must con-
i>"- even after Local Option carries.
The blind-piggers are premature Such
efforts to bombard public opinion are
worthy of the utmost contempt. To
run in upon our community large num-
bera of blind-piggers to serve election
purposes, to set these beggars upon
respectable citizens to canvass in favor
of Local Option and in this way to
discredit thc Temperance Cause, such
methods are worthy ol men whose
' business has been pronounced the "filthiest curse of the social world today."
The Laboring Man's Curse
"The great curse of the laboring man
is intemperance.    It has brought more
desolation  to  the  wage  earners  than
strikes, or war, or sickness, or death.

Mining Stock Advances
The HAZELTON NINE MILE MINING CO., LTD., (non-personal liability) hereby advance
the price of their stock from 20 to 25 cents per share.
As previously announced this company's treasury is in such good shape that development work
can be taken care of until May 1st next on the proceeds of the 15 and 20 cent sales. The owners of
this property are poor men, but they don't propose to sell any more stock for prices less than the
merits justify. If you are wide awake to the conditions of Nine MUe Mountain you are aware
that the ore bodies are large and that values are uniformly four times as high as in any other
Northern B. C. camp. We venture to state that dividends will be paid in this district first for that
very reason.
We have just arranged to place the stock in Vancouver, Victoria and ScaUle at 25 cents and in
the hands of hustling agents who will give the property the publicity due it. MARK THIS WELL.
NINE MILE PROPERTIES SO FAR ARE ALL WINNERS, and good honest development work it
being done, and a sharp advance in shares is inevitable in the early spring. Why every other person
you mention "Hazelton" to right now speaks of going up the river on the first boat. Do you know
what all this portends? If you have been through one good mining boom you have no need to ask.
The old boomer gets a "hunch" and tries to get an early start and thc business man kicks himself
because he didn't move that stock of goods earlier and the result is one big stampede.
TAKE YOUR "HUNCH" NOW. This LEAD KING is dirt Cheap at twenty-five cents and you
had better buy it while it suits your purse. You know what happens when everybody wants to buy
it.    Make a 25 per cent, deposit and we will reserve stock for you.

The Same Old Lie
"Local Option in   is proving
the usual failure, so far as prs-vchting
the Bale of alcoholic beverages is concerned  and reports from show
nearly as much liquor is sold as before
thc Local Option law went into effect."
The above is a sample of thc same old
lie that the liquor sympathisers have
been circulating in every no license
community for thc last fifty years. It
is the same old lie that forms the chief
argument for saloons in every no-
license campaign. It is a glittering
generality, and is never verified. There
has never been a no license province,
city, town or village wnerc the annual
sale of liquor has been as large as the
sale of liquor before no license was
adopted, mo natter how lax the laws may
have been or how poorly enforced. The
liquorites have never been able to secure
from the official records of Washington
anything in thu way of figures regarding
the consumption of inloxicalinng liquora
that would lend the least color lo (he
argument that more liquor is sold in
"dry" territory than in "wet'' territory.
On the other hand, the official records
from thousands of communities where
the liquor traffic has been excluded,
show that thc reverse of this ancient
liquor argument is true; nnd yet in
every campaign intelligent citizens arc
influenced by this old falsehood to retain
the bars. It is to bc hoped that some
day truth will get a hearing.

"McBRIDE'S BOY" ON THE G. T. P. ASSESSMENT
"If I am returned as Mayor in the forthcoming election, I will take the
first opportunity to have a settlement of the G. T. P. assessment difficulty
effected."  (Extract from the speech of Mr. William Manson, M. P. P.I.
When Mr. William Manson spoke thc above lines at his Tuesday evening's
meeting he had his tongue in his cheek. They were among the truest words he has
spoken. If somewhere, concealed from sight, he has a spark of humor in his makeup, how he must have grinned, when the audience applauded the sentiment.
"Take the first opportunity to effect a settlement?" The public may rest
assured he will. That is the reason he is running. That is the reason he must be
opposed by all citizens who value the welfare of the city. Later on, a figure head
Mayor may do, but today a man with a spine is wanted in the Mayor's chair. A
stand-patter of Mr. Manson's type, obedient to the orders of his boss, Hon. Richard
McBride, and Hon. Mr. McBride's bosses, the corporations, is thc kind of a man
who could be trusted to stand meekly by while the city is being shackled hand
and foot for twenty years or more.
As a matter of fact, Mr. William Manson already knows the terms on which
it has been arranged that Prince Rupert is to bc tied down. He waa present at the
private meeting of the Executive of the Conservative Aasociation where Hon.
Mr. McBride indicated the terms which he wanted to secure on behalf of the
company. Those terms at the lowest possible computation, i. e., on the assumption
that the town remains stationary in its growth are equal to a gift of over a million
dollars in cash to the company. In effect it will mean a gift of several millions.
The precise terms and the misleading nature of them, will all be pointed out in the
pages of this journal in due course, should Mr. Manson not dare to admit his part
in the surreptitious scheme.
To the credit of the members of the Conservative executive let it be admitted
that they flatly refused to consent to the demand of Mr. McBride, that the city
be tied up for twenty years. Already some have regretted thc final scheme they
were jockeyed into consenting to. That scheme is the one Mr. Manson had in
mind when he put his tongue in his cheek and told his hearers "If I am elected I
will take the first opportunity to have a settlement of thc G. T. P. assessment
difficulty settled."
Party politics have absolutely nothing to do with thc municipal welfare of
Prince Rupert. When Mr. McBride, "McBride's boy," and the G. T. P. management put their heads together to arrange a satisfactory settlement of the O. T. P.
assessment, let the citizens look out. "McBride's boy" is not a suitable person
for Mayor while thc assessment problem remains to be settled.
GENEROUS DONATIONS TO HOSPITAL
CONTINUED PROM page 1
Gift From the Masons
The Masonic deputation consisted
of Messrs. D. R. Morrison and A. J.
Morris. They explained that the only
concession which they desired was that
the members of the craft of iheir families
should have thc privilege of the ward
to be endowed by them whenever possible and consistent with the good
government of the institution. It was
juat possible that the luxurious manner
in which they proposed to furnish the
ward would give it a Rrcater revenue
drawing capacity than the others and
they desired that when their members
or families had the use of it they would
be charged no more than the ordinary
rate of thc other wards. In reply to a
question Mr. Morris explained that thc
Lodge had no particular desire to use
thc ward as an advertising medium. All
they wanted to identify the wards with
thc craft was the installation of a small
plate with the name of thc donors
inscribed thereon and placed somewhere within the ward.   The particular
ward which the Lodge is desirous of
endowing is the one on the second floor
facing First nvenue. The members ot
thc board expressed their gratitude
and suggested that the movement would
be a good example for thc other wealthy
bodies in thc town to follow. It waa
agreed that thc Lodge's definite proposition be brought before the board in
writing.
Gift From the G.T. P.
The generous gift of the G. T. P. waa
conveyed by letter and thc articles
of agreement were encloaed. It waa
suggested that some trouble might
ensue in thc event of thc present site
of the hospital proving unsuitable at
some future time but it was generally
felt that in such a case the G.T.P
would be ready to alter the agreement
30 as to get over thc clause specifying
that the ground be used for no other
purpose.
Progress at the Hospital
A number of minor matters in connection with the building were reported
upon. The board decided to get on
with the sewerage as speedily as possible
and authorized the Building Committee,
acting in conduction with the architect,
to take immediate action in the matter.
It was authoritatively stated that the

time, and it was this information,
coupled with the pressing necessity of
the matter, that led to the action being
taken by the board as previously it
had been referred to the Building
Committee. Everything was reported
to be in readiness at the hospital for
thc installation of the light and just as
soon as it was turned on in thc town
the hospital would be capable of illumination. Matters concerning the

ALLEGED TORY PLOT
From Page 1
to the effect t hat in the event of a Tory
defeat that party had a scheme whereby
they would dispute thc authority of
thc new parliament. Here is the quotation: "There is a desperate plot afoot.
Forseeing defeat the Tories plan to
dispute the authority of the new parliament. Rosebery is the real leader
of the peers against the people. In
the face of three adverse elections
the peers will still attempt to rule."
Rosebery Not Satisfied
In the opinion of some of the leading
British papers color is given to thia
sensational suggestion by the statement
from Lord Rosebery himself that the
result is not decisive enough to warrant
any government in interfering with
the rights and privileges of the hereditary
house. Mr. Balfour immediately corroborated the great Liberal peer and his
statement is now being used as capital
by the Unionists. Out of the constituencies polled yesterday the Unionists gained three seats.

Scott Act in its actual workings
have come out against il solely on the
ground that any Act with such champions could not be a good thing for
Prince Rupert. If these champions of
the Act have over-reached themselves
it is a good thing for the city. The
issue is now up to the people. Do you
wish to light with thc blind-piggers for
a wide-open town or with the substantial
business men for a great and prosperous
Prince Rupert.
Do you notice that our "Temperance"
friends are so ashamed of the Scott
Act that they refuse to put it on the
sign over their headquarters. They do
not say Scott Act Headquarters, but
try to stick to their poor fiction of
Local Option.
Strange Bedfellows
The Scott Act champions are now-
claiming that the "blind pig" operators
are inspired by the liquor men in their
championship of the Act in the hope
of discrediting the movement. We
can produce a business man of this
city who is willing to take his oatll to
the fact that a certain man told him
that he was working for the Scott Act
solely for the purpose of running a
"blind pig." He claimed that he had
been promised a license but the promise
had not been kept, and said: "now 1
am going to get even; I'll work for
the Scott Act and if it passes I'll sell
booze in spite of these hotel keepers."
How do the preachers relish the partnership.

Don't Be Bombarded!
That election dodge of bringing in
blind piggerb   is   an   old   ruse   of
Bskey-men.    What sort of  decency
IB they���merely for the sake of an
ption to bring in numbers of Buch a
eputable   element?     Oh,   whiskey-
i we're not for one moment fooled!
brought in any number of these
five months ago so as to lure thc
���p'c to prefer license and give you a
lthold.   Now, you're up to the same
tuns and imagine the people arc
K   You forget to note that for at
F six months or possibly eighteen
Tjths, the license-regime  must con-
Is- even after Local Option carries.
The blind-piggers are premature. Such
efforts to bombard public opinion arc
worthy of the utmost contempt. To
run in upon our community large num-
bera of blind-piggers to serve election
purposes, to set these beggars upon
respectable citizens to canvass in favor
of Local Option and in this way to
discredit thc Temperance Cause, such
methods are worthy of men whose
business has been pronounced the "filthiest curse of the social world today."
The Laboring Man'- Curse
"The great curse of thc laboring man
is intemperance.   It has brought more
desolation  to the  wage earners  than
strikes, or war, or sickness, or death.

Mining Stock Advances
The HAZELTON NINE MILE MINING CO., LTD., (non-personal liability) hereby advance
the price of their stock from 20 to 25 cents per share.
As previously announced this company's treasury is in such good shape that development work
can be taken care of until May 1st next on the proceeds of the 15 and 20 cent sales. The owners of
this property are poor men, but they don't propose to sell any more stock for prices less than the
merits justify. If you are wide awake to the conditions of Nine MUe Mountain you are aware
that the ore bodies are large and that values are uniformly four times as high as in any other
Northern B. C. camp. We venture to state that dividends will be paid in this district first for that
very reason.
We have just arranged to place the stock in Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle at 25 cents and in
the hands of hustling agents who will give the property the publicity due it. MARK THIS WELL.
NINE MILE PROPERTIES SO FAR ARE ALL WINNERS, and good honest development work is
being done, and a sharp advance in shares is inevitable in the early spring. Why every other person
you mention "Hazelton" to right now speaks of going up the river on the first boat. Do you know
what all this portends? If you have been through one good mining boom you have no need to ask.
The old boomer gets a "hunch" and tries to get an early start and the business man kicks himself
because he didn't move that stock of goods earlier and the result is one big stampede.
TAKE YOUR "HUNCH" NOW. This LEAD KING is dirt cheap at twenty-five cents and you
had better buy it while it suits your purse. You know what happens when everybody wants to buy
jt.   Make a 25 per cent, deposit and we will reserve stock for you.

The Same Old Lie
"Local Option in   is proving
the usual failure, so far as prevchting
thc sale of alcoholic beverages is concerned and reports from show
nearly as much liquor is sold as before
the Local Option law went into effect."
The above is a sample of the same old
lie that the liquor sympathizers have
been circulating in every no license
community for the last fifty years. It
is the same old lie thnt forms the chief
argument for saloons in every no-
license campaign. It is a glittering
generality, and is never verified. There
has never been a no license province,
city, town or village wnerc the annual
sale of liquor has been as large as thc
sale of liquor before no-license was
adopted, mo natter how lax the laws may
have been or how poorly enforced. The
liquorites have never been able to secure
from thc official records of Washington
anything in the way of figures regarding
the consumption of intoxicationg liquors
that would lend thc least color to the
argument that more liquor is sold in
"dry" territory than in "wet'' territory.
On the other hand, the official records
from thousands of communities where
the liquor traffic has been excluded,
show that the reverse of this ancient
liquor argument is true; and yet in
every campaign intelligent citizens are
influenced by this old fulsehood to retain
the bars. It is to bc hoped that some
day truth will get a hearing.

Directions for the Guidance of Voters
The voter will go into one of the compartme-sta, and with a paper there
provided, place a cross thus, X in the upper apace 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 afterwarda be identified, his vote will be void, and will
not be counted.
If the voter takes a ballot paper out of the polling atation, or fraudently
puts any other paper into the ballot box than the ballot paper given him by the
deputy returning officer, he will be aubject to be punished by fine or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months, with or without hard labor.
Don't forget that thc 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.

MAKING READY
FOR DEEP FILL
RAVINE   ON   FIRST   AVENUE  TO
BE FILLED UP
City Engineer Deviaea Plans for Disposal of Surface Water and Por-
tection of Sewer and Water Pipes
During the Work.
In preparation for the big forty-five
foot fill on First avenue between Seventh
and Eighth streets the city engineer has
men engaged at present upon some
important construction work at this
point.
Surface water from an area of fifty
acres drains through the little creek in
the ravine-here, and this drainage of
water has to be provided for. A dry
atone culvert is being constructed by
direction of the city engineer to convey
the water, and the excavation for this
has been taken to bed rock.   Suitable
stone for the construction of the culvert
ia ready to hand on the spot so that
the work is being very economically
done.
Pipes to be Protected
Through this deep fill pass also the
trunk sewer and a water pipe, which
have been so far supported upon pilea.
Thousands of tons of rock from the cut
at Wayne Place will be deposited over
these pipes, and pile supports for them
now are of course out of the question.
Colonel Davis haa accordingly planned
for the building in underneath the
sewer and water pipes of a foundation
of substantial character to atand t restrain, and workmen are at present
engaged in building walls and filling
in rock beneath both the sewer and
water pipes.
Building Rock Walla
In order to relieve the pipes of the
weight of material bearing upon them
from above, the city engineer has
arranged that thc rock walls shall he
carried upon each side of both pipes and
arched over the top of them so as to
distribute the weight of material dumped
above them. All the work ib being done
with dry stone obtained right on the
spot, and the cost will therefore not be
in any way expensive.
Hadn't a Cent
Charles Coyle was fined five dollars
and costs today for having been drunk
last night. He had no money and was
allowed ten days in which to pay the
fine.

GREAT GATHERING OF RICH AND

Sir John Hare, the Celebrated Comedy Actor Unveila the Statue and
Presents It to London���Location
Near National Gallery.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Dec. 7.���While Ellen Terry,
the great Shakespearean actress, is
paying a trip to British Columbia and
delighting the hearts of all observers
with her wonderful impersonations and
interpretations of the great master's
characters, thc memory of her great
colleague in the Thespian field, the late
Sir Henry Irving, is being perpetuated
in London by means of u bronze statue
of the renouned tragedian. With true
artistic approposity the st atueis erected
near the National Gallery. Yesterday
it was unveiled to the public by that
inimitable captain of comedy, Sir John
Hare. As might well be expected the
ceremony was attended by practically
all London, who foregathered once more
at the feet of the master as it were. Up
from the cold storage of regret came
the loving memories of the old Lyceum,
and the ariatrocratic dilettante vied
with the five-eighth plebian in the
exuberance of his sympathy. For the
performance of such a touching ceremony Sir John Hare was most happily
equipped and his deliverance ot tbe
atatue to the people of the great metropolis will be a long remembered
epitaph in the minds of all who heard.

(Special to the Optimist)
Monrovia, Va., Dec. 7.���The racial
feud between the whites and blacks
was stimulated today by the lynching
of two negroes who revelled in the
classic names of Calvin Exele and Sylvester Peyton. Their offence does not
appear to have been so heinous as that
of some former victims of the lynch law.
They were convicted by the court of
theft, from a barn and were being lodged
in the local prison to expiate their crime
when the infuriated mob broke into the
jail, dragged the yelling creatures from
their haven of safety, and hanged them
to a tree in the near vicinity. Feeling
in the town runs very high at the present
time and lynch law is put into operation
on the very slightest pretext, the police
officials being quite powerless to resist
the remorseless will of the white populace.

Two microbes sat on the pantry shelf.
And watched, with expressions pained,
The milkman's stunts;
And both said at once:
"Our relations are getting strained!"
"I have difficulty in satisfying my
wife. She has a thousand wants." "I
have difficulty in satisfying mine, and
she has only one want.   "What is it?"
"Money."
"Here!" shouted the depot official,
what do you mean by throwing those
trunks around like that?" Thc baggageman gasped in astonishment, and severs
travellers pinched themselves to make
sure that it was real. Then the official
spoke again to the baggageman. "Don't
you see thatyoti'ru making big dents in
this concrete platform?"
Auctioneer���Now,   gentlemen,   how
much for this oil painting?
Buyer���Fifty cents.
Auctioneer���Fifty cents! Why, the
canvas alone is worth more than that.
Buyer���Yes, but the canvas is spoilt.
"She is very liberal in her charities,"
said one woman.
"Yes," answered the other; "liberal,
but not always practical. For instance,
she wanted to send alarm clocks to
Africa to aid sufferers from the sleeping
sickness."
Richard Harding Davis at a football
game in Philadelphia praised the voices
of the young undergraduates shouting
their weird college yells. "It makes
me think of a Locust street bride,"
said Mr. Davis, smiling. "She turned
to her husband one night at dinner and
remarked: 'My dear, the first lime I
saw you was at Franklin Field. Your
head was thrown back, your mouth was
wide open, and your face was very red���
you were yelling your college yell.'
'Yes, I remember,' said the young man.
'And I noticed,' she continued, 'what a
remarkable voice you had,' 'Yes, you
spoke of it at the time,' said he. 'But
what makes you thihk of it now?"
'Oh, nothing,' said the bride. 'Only I
wish the baby hadn't inherited it.
That's all.' "

We are now opening
another shipment of
there famous English
Raincoats. They have
proven so satisfactory
with our customers
that we have been encouraged to import a
much larger stock of
them than we have
hitherto, and we now
have them in all the
well known shades and
sizes. Importing them
as we do, direct from
England, we have no
middleman's commission to pay and we are
thus enabled to sell
these coats as reasonably as if purchased
anywhere else in Canada.
We are also opening
a large stock of Umbrellas, ladies' and
gentlemen's sizes. The
range is complete, running in value from 75c
to $12 each.

Provincial or local prohibitory laws is
evidence of the failure of prohibition
and proof that "prohibition does not
prohibit," then every'case of Sunday
selling, belling after hours, selling to
minors, selling to drunkards, and every
brawl and murder in a bar is just as
much evidence of the failure of the
license system and proof that "regulation
does not regulate."
Why don't the liquorites attack the
license system stronghold on this point?
Let them tell the truth and write communications for publication pointing
out thc numerous failures of regulation
in Prince Rsipert and elsewhere, and
demand that the newspaper Bhall in
fairness give both sides.
Sixty-three "blind-piggers" and "bootleggers" arrested in Portland, Oregon, in
twenty-four hours goes to show how
"well regulated license saloons" work.
If whiskey organs wanted to be fair
they might devote a little more space
to telling the people how the beautiful
license system works in Prince Rupert
or in their own town, instead of wasting
all their energies in telling how the
"dry" towns are violating the law.
The Lord Mayor of London, Sir
Thomas Strong, who was elected to
preside over the greatest city in the
world without opposition, is a total
abstainer from the use of alcohol.
Moral suasion can be successfully
employed to win men from the practice
of an evil or induce them to oppose it,
but it is powerless against the evil
itself which in thc very nature of things
is utterly at variance with anything
moral. Sinful men may be persuaded,
but organized iniquity must be FOUGHT

In Maine in 1908 there was one commitment to jail for each 108 of the
population, while in Massachusetts, a
whiskey state, there was one for each 35
of the population.
The bar is doomed because it does
everybody harm and does not do any
body good.
Are you helping to keep tho family
of the brewer while your own is in need
of life's comforts?
All over England the saloon-keepers
are asking for a decrease in license and
in rent because of an ever failing business.
One brewery firm in asking for decreased
assessments declared that during the
past two years the trade in beer in
England had fallen ten per cent, and
added that "there seemed to be no
stop in the fall of the consumption of
beer.
Figures recently issued by thc gov
ernment statisticians show that within
the last two years thc people of the
United States have lessened their expenditure for alcoholic beverages by an
amount estimated at $100,185,G00.00.
When one stops to remember that this
enormouB decrease is shown despite the
great increase of foreigners, most of
whom are habitual users of alcohol in
some form, the figures are pregnant with
hopeful possibilities.
