Members Had to Apologize
Mr. Crowthers, of Elgin, followed but
the noise of the Liberals leaving their
seats after the speech of the premier
was so great that he could not make
himself heard. He appealed to the
speaker, which was the occasion of
hearty laughter. The speaker, however,
took the matter in earnest and called
upon several members to apologize.
PORTUGUESE SOLDIERS MUTINY
Troops at Macao Rise.   Foreign Residents in Danger
(Special to the Optimist)
Hongkong, Nov. 30.���It is reported
that the Portuguese soldiers stationed
at Macao have revolted against the
Portuguese republic. Rioting is reported as having occurred on the principal streets and foreign residents are
believed to be in grave danger.
The soldiers here have been in a state
of turmoil for months previous to the
declaration of the republic, owing lo the
determination of the Chinese to oust
them from the harbor. It is reported
that the Chinese are again arming
to take advantage of the split in the
Portuguese army of occupation.

SURVEYORS BUSY ON PORT SIMPSON LINE
Survey Must Be Completed by Christmas to Retain Charter-
Will i>e In Operation in Two Years Time���Construction to Start  in the  Spring.
���Li
ne
"I'll wager that within two years
from next Christmas we have railway
connection with Prince Rupert," Manager Sharp, of the Hudson Bay post
at Port Simpson is reported to have
said last Saturday. It will be news to
many that the surveys of the Prince
Rupert, Port Simpson and Northern
Short Line railway are now in progress,
and that these surveys must be completed by next Christmas, now only a
few weeks away, or the company cannot
hope to hold its charter.
Percy Collins is the head engineer, and
most of the men engaged in the work
are from this city. Among them are
F. B. Casey, who has charge of the
Georgetown portion of the survey, E.
Petrie, who has the upper harbor camp
and the following: J. Howe, J. H.
Llewellyn, D. Yates, R. H. Murphy,
C. O. Otter, H. T. Titus, D. Blaine and
Robert Smith.
Starts at Seal Cove
The line is of standard guage and
starts from a point near Seal Cove
and runs through Lot 444 and over a
small summit north to Schawatlans
lake. Then it proceeds in a northerly
direction form that point to the narrows
in the upper harbor and after a short
stretch along the shore crosses a summit
to Georgetown, from which point it
is practically a shore line to Port .Simpson. The whole distance is about
twenty-seven miles.
Will Get Good Grades
Of the two summits the one near here
has an elevation of 240 feet, that of
Georgetown 300 feet. On the first sum-
mil the grade will be 1.8 per cent, coming
back to the harbor on a grade of 1.2 per
cent, and over the Georgetown summit
the engineers hope to be able to establish
a 1 per cent grade.
Frost Interferes a Little
The frost has interfered with the work
a little during the last few days. From
thc Narrows up, the water being still,
it has frozen over, and the ice is too
thick for the launch to break and too
thin to freight over it. There will be
heavy work on both summits, owing
to the depth of the muskeg. The rest
of the projected route is in rock that
preaenls no particular difficulties.
Soon Start Construction
The directors of the line were up on
the last I'rince Rupert and went over
a good part of the line, expressing
themselves pleased with the rapid progress of the work. They intimated that
construction work would immediately
follow the approval of the surveys.

M. P. McCaffery to Travel  With His
Wife in the South
During the winter M. P. McCaffrey
will travel with Mrs. McCaffrey in the
States. They leave on Thursday night
by the Prince Rupert for the South.
Mr. McCaffery expects to meet Mr.
George Morrow anda. to spend a little
time with him in California. The
immediate purpose of his journey is
recreation rather than business.

dumped into the water. Captain Al-
cock, acting harbor master, objected to
this and insisted upon the body being
towed away from the docks, which was
done.
Ben was a fine horse, weighing some
fifteen hundred pounds, only eight
years old and therefore just in his prime.
One of the pioneers of the city dropped
dead on Center street this morning, of
heart disease. His name was "Ben"
and he was one of the first team of
heavy draught horses to be brought
to this port by the Kelly company.
Ben and his partner were hauling a load of
coal and right opposite City Hall Ben
fell. It was believed this was simply
due to the slipperyness of the streets.
The harness was taken off him but
when urged to rise he made no effort.
In a few moments he was pronounced
dead.
The body was dragged to the waters

Following the example of Elizabeth
Fry, who inaugurated the work of
prison reform, the Local Council of
Women of Montreal have instituted a
campaign for the betterment of women
prisoners in the reformatories.
A site for a jail farm has been suggested, where the prisoners could be
placed at useful open air employment,
and where the acreage would permit
of the "cottage system" being adopted,
so that the educational, religious, mental,
physical, and industrial welfare of the
delinquents could be looked after.
The Premier of Quebec, Sir Lomer
Gouin, arranged for a conference with
tbe representatives of the Local Council
of Women on March 5, 1910, in the
Government offices. Senator Dandurand
introduced the delegates, who were
accompanied by Judge Choquette, Judge
Weir and Judge Leet. The Local
Council made an appeal for a provincial
reformative institution for women entirely distinct from the jail.
The Premier recognized the need,
asked the Local Council of Women
to submit to him a summary of the
information at its command, and promised to consider the matter with his
colleagues. At the same time, he
pointed out the advisability of applying first to the Dominion Government
for the desired amendments to the
Criminal Code which -vould enable
judges and magistrates to commit
corrigible offenders over 16 years of age
to reformative institutions upon indeterminate sentences.
Having obtained the authorization
of the National Council of Women of
Canada, a delegation from the Montreal Local Council waited upon the
Minister of Justice at Ottawa, and laid
before him their report and recommendations. The Hon. Mr. Aylesworth expressed himself as in full sympathy with
the movement and promised his support
in securing such changes in the Criminal
Code at an early date.
As a result of this interview Sir
Lomer Gouin has offered to_meet
representatives of the Local Council of
Women again before the next session
of the Provincial Legislature in order
that the matter may be further discussed.
.Exchanges Hobbles for Anklets
Of the making of strange fashions
t here is no end. The hobble skirt seemed
to be the limit but now the fashionable
folk of London are taking up the anklet
as a means of personal adornment.
Very handsome anklets are now offered
for sale at the very swagger shops. The
anklet idea is the outcome of the present
fashion of very short dresses, high-
heeled patent leather shoes, and brilliantly-colored stockings, which in itself
is bad enough without the addition of a
bangle to further attract attention.
The "fashion," it goes without saying,
comes from Paris, where it has been
taken up to an extent, but only by those
inclined to eccentricity in dress.
But, after all, the wearing of anklets
would be merely the revival of an old
fashion. Three generations ago it was
not unusual to see a bangle around the
ankle, and a famous wearer of this
ornament was the wife of the third
Duke of Cleveland, the old Duchess
who died in 1883 at the age of -ninoty-
!one. She had very small feet, and to
the end of her days was the wearer of a
dainty gold anklet.
A $60,000 Swimming Pool
A New York correspondent informs
us that Miss Helen M. Gould is to have
a private swimming pool built for her
at her country home, Lyndhuret, at
a cost of about $60,000. The building will be 140 feet long and 60 feet
wide, the actual pool being 70 feet long
and 35 feet wide. The pool will be
lined with mosaic work, and the roof
will be of glass. Handsomely appointed
lounging rooms, shower baths and
dressing rooms will make the bath the
finest of its kind in the United States.
About the Baby's Teeth
An acute illness will delay teething,
but the chief cause of late dentition is
rickets. The teeth should appear as
follows:
About the seventh month the two
middle teeth in the lower jaw. A few
weeks later the two middle teeth in
the upper jaw, these four being the
central incisors.
At eight months the lateral incisors,
top and bottom.
At twelve months the four back
teeth or molars.
At sixteen months the four eye teeth.
At twenty-four months the other four
molars.
A jaconet bib should be worn by the
child, as the constant "dribbling" that
occurs is liable to set up a chill. If an
ivory ring is given to the infant to
bite, the ring must be cleansed with
boiling water every day. The child's
fingers, which so frequently go to the
mouth during teething, should be often
washed during the day.
For the Housewife
To scale fish easily dip them in boiling
water.
Porcelain or earthenware that has
become dingy or stained is greatly improved by rubbing or scouring with
salt dusted upon a cloth.
Much of the heavy cake and bread
is the result of the oven doors being
banged in closing. They should be
closed as gently as possible.
To avoid unpleasant odors that arise
from cooking cabbage, cover it with
slices of bread about half an inch thick
during the boiling process.
Boiling liquids, jellies, or fruits may
be turned into glass without breaking
the vessel if you press the bowl of a
spoon up the bottom while filling.

bristles, ebony backs. Ladies brushes

S. A. OPENING CEREMONY
William Manson, M. P. P., Will Turn
Silver Key on Sunday
On Sunday afternoon at three the new
Salvation Army Hall will be formally
opened. William \Janson, M. P. P., will
preside and turn the silver key.' Major
Morris will be here from Vancouver with
other leaders of the Salvation Army
in British Columbia, and everybody is
welcomed to the ceremony which will
take place at 3 p.m.
���Ensign Johnstone wishes it to be
particularly clear to all the business men
and clergy of the city that they are
specially invited to the opening. Ensign
Johnstone would send them each a
personal invitation if possible, but he
hopes that they will take the will for
the deed and be present when the Hall is
opened.

EXTERMINATE THE RATS
However much the discussion of the clearing of the G. T. P. reserve might
lend itself to humorous treatment, it must not be forgotten that the subject is a
serious one, and one that has to be faced at some time. The seriousness to the
shack dwellers of having possibly to vacate their dwellings at short notice is self-
evident. The Council, as humane men may be trusted to extend to them all the
consideration that the circumstances of the case permit.
If the work of clearirig the reserve is postponed till spring, arrangements should
be made for the work of demolition to begin before the warm weather is with us.
The menace to health, is one that neither the residents of the reserve or the citizens
at large should have to tolerate. ���
Humane promptings will probably make the community willing to allow the
work to be deferred till spring, but the increasing risk which summer will bring
makes it imperative that the shacks be destroyed before the warm weather is far
advanced.
In the meantime, the Council should not delay taking steps to exterminate
the rats, before they constitute a plague. The reproductive powers of rodents
are notorious. Any delay increases the magnitude of the work to be accomplished
in exterminating them.
The destructive qualities of rats are well known, and it is now a well established
fact that, like the housefly, the mosquito, and the lowly germ, the rat is an active
carrier of disease. The outbreaks of bubonic plague in seaports are definitely
traceable to the agency of the fleas which infest the bodies of rats.
Greatly as we fear the havoc and injury tb our progress which an outbreak
of-fire might cause in our young city, it is a menace not to be compared to the
menace of disease. By toil and sacrifice buildings can be replaced, but not the
strong men, the gentle women and tender children who may be removed by the
swift pitilessness of a plague.
There is of course no reason at present for anyone to feel unnecessarily alarmed.
Rats are not any more dangerous now than before the discovery that they are
disease carriers; neither are cats of whom eighty-five per cent in a recent test by
medical experts were found to be suffering from consumption.
But in the face of the clear knowledge that rats are now recognized as agents
of disease the Health authorities should not delay in the work of exterminating
the rats.

THE BEAM AND THE MOTE
Surely our contemporary is devoid of humor. After working itself up into
a typical Empire frenzy at the City Council, because of the non-arrival from Vancouver of a portion of the electric lighting plant, it came out last night with the
following announcement on its front page:
"Owing to sudden and unforeseen difficulties today's issue of the Empire,
is not up to the usual standurd, and much interesting reading matter has been
unavoidably held over for tomorrow."
Has our contemporary never heard the parable of the beam and the mote?

ANOTHER VIEW OF ECONOMICS AND THE BAR
(Lettert. in this column do not MOMMrUy express the opinion of thin paper Ion the subject
under discussion.)
SAMPLE OF SCOTT ACT "ARGUMENTS"
T'1-' follovvisiK is published by the Press Com-
(tee of the opponents of the Scott Act, ansl is
tlis' s'\prs>aaissn of the vlewB of this pnrser.)
he latest article published  by the.'
(herents of the Scott Act  begins as
lows: "The inference from the present
talion over the Scott Act issue seems
be that those who favor it are either
ots or fools, while those who oppose
are  the   broad-minded   and   wise."
haps an analysis of the article in ques-
n will show that the writer labeled
party better than  he  would  care
do.
In the lirst place, he says tha�� "side
side with the advertising of the
nsite for sale went out the far-flung
1 that it was to be preserved as a
leal temperance town." When was
is furllung news ever circulated and
so, by whose authority? Everyone
m that this city on incorporation
>uld come under the laws governing
nifipulitics throughout the province,
this respect as well as others, and if
i'oiu- undertook to sell lots in the
nsite by clainimg any different
was simply obtaining money under
<6 pretences.
The writer claims that captains of
ustry are giving money to the Y. M.
A. and claims this is an argument
favor of prohibition.    Does he re-
raber the fact that John Wanamaker
be great  Christian  merciiant"  gave
ndredi of thousands to the Sunday
100I1 and that an investigation under-
���en   by   the   Federation   of   Labor
loswl thc fact that  his  mammoth
ipwtmrat store was the most fertile
niitlng   ground   for   the   tenderloin
trieta     It   was   almost   impossible
the girls employed by him to remain
on thc meagre wages paid them
"in 18.00  to  $2.50 per week).    The
mum sums  given  to  the  Sunday
hools   simply   meant   that   mothers
roughout  the  country   were  willing
trust their daughters to the tender
Trim of this modern slave trader.   As
matter of fact this money is given
mply for advertising purposes.
A�� to the fact that prohibition has
Kir rapid strides in the United States
"imply  emphasizes   the   fact,   long
flown   to   Europe,   that   the   United
lies in an  hysterical  nation.    Moronism, Dowieism, Spiritualism, Chris-
in Science, the Holy Rollers, and the
ost of other fads, they all have their
'i hi-rents.   When you notice the fact
Mt side by aide with the spread of
riihihition the Inland Revenue returns
K  United  States show  that  the
"iisumption of liquor is actually in-
ratting, it does not mean so very much
"II.    If  the  drinking  of  liquor
'i vice, the Americans have simply
Intituled a secret vice for an open
ni'.   and   doctors   agree   that   secret.
I��i nn- the most harmful.
This talk of a thousand dollars a day
N'sK spent  in  the bars  of  the  city
���Maid of the stores is all rot.   It takes
lot of men to Bpend aix thousand
Hiirs a week, and this simply amounts
an   accusation   that  the   majority
lorul
kll.T
bl tha
wage-earners of the city are not
*��� to  be trusted  with  the  spending
'���'���-���ir own  money,  but  that  their
PptmdltUN must be regulated by law.
The writer says the candy stores are
not doing as well as they did before
licenses were granted. This is certainly
too bad but it is hard to say how it
can be remedied unless you pass a law-
compelling every wage-earner in the
city to spend a certain amount on candy
every pay day. And while you are
about it why not carry interference
to its logical conclusion and set the
limit which a man can spend in any one
store. As a matter of fact the sale
of any commodity is regulated by the
law of supply and demand. Stop the
demand and the manufacture and the
sale will at once cease. But to curtail
the supply while the demand remains
the same simply leads to adulteration
in the commodity and an increase in
price.
This talk about the "rumsellers"
taking an extended tour through the
older lands, is so much cheap twaddle.
Does no one but a "rumseller" ever
take a trip to Europe, or take his family
south for the winter. Do not thousands
of successful business men do so every
year and is success in business a crime.
Why here in Prince Rupert men, not
engaged in the liquor business have been
known to take their families soulh for
the winter, and no one ever thought of
insinuating that they had not the right
to do so. As a matter of fact there are
probably fewer wealthy men among
hotel keepers than any other business
of a similar magnitude. Last summer
the papers gave an instance of a real
estate man in Victoria who made
ninety-seven thousand dollars on a
single deal. What a deep-dyed criminal
that man must have been. And while
we are on this question of money being
taken out of the town by the hotels,
would it not be well lo pass a law prohibiting the investment of money made
in Prince Rupert real estate in rival
towns. Let us be consistent in all
things, and if we are to dictate to
one set of men how they shall spend
their money make the rule of general
application.
But enough of this. This is a fair
sample of the argument put up by
those who favor the enactment of
prohibitory legislation in this city and
elsewhere. A lot of sentimental rubbish
rubbish coupled with a "holier than
thou" attitude which gets on the nerves
of the average citizen.
To the Editor of the Optimist:
Dear Sir,���The letter in yesterday's
Optimist entitled, "Economics and the
Bar," presumably the licensed bar, one
might easily ignore if if it were not
signed by a respected citizen.
My good friend, Mr. H. F. McRae, is
a man of learning and ability, and has
i the courage of his convictions, and I
| can sympathize with him in  his liulf-
J hearted advocacy of the Scott Act, for
i he knows its limitations and its failings.
I voted for that Act once myself, and
j with my fellow citizens tried to enforce
i its provisions.    But the more we tried
I the   more   we   failed.     It   made   two
: diunkiirds to one it reformed.   It created
greater   evils   than   it   attempted   to
suppress.    Perjury,  spying,  hypocrisy.
'and   clandestine  drunkenness  followed
in jts wake.   As one who has studied
this question  for many years  I   have
come   to   the   conclusion   that   people
are becoming more sober through the
compulsion of business and social stress,
i than through the operation of statutory
prohibition.
Mr. McRae speaks in glowing terms
of our prosperity before licenses were
issued and asks "Has not all our progress
up to date taken place under a restricted
liquor sale?" I will call on his friend.
Dr. Spencer the Local Option champion,
to answer this question. In his message
to the people of Prince Rupert, published
a few days ago, Dr. S|>encer says: "From
the beginning you have been cursed with
blind pigs, resulting in crime, disgrace,
and promoting immorality. Your red
light district and gambling dens could
not flourish without liquor. It is the
basic evil of all thc rest." Here are
two Local Option men who hold different
views of the early history of Prince
Rupert.
But let us follow Mr. McRae: "What
man except an interested one���will
dare say that business has been better
since licenses were issued?" Will any
man���save an interested one���dare say
that business has been worse? But
here Mr. McRae suddenly leaves Prince
| Rupert and is across the international
boundary, for his next sentence reads:
"What money-loving nation in all the
world can, in that respect, be compared
with the United Slates? And yet in
spite of that what nation has made
such rapid strides in its fight against
the bar?" Here he agrees with Dr.
Spencer, who says in the letter already
referred to that: "Sixty million Americans arc now living under Local Option
law." As this is a large proportion of
the  |K>pulation of thc United  Stales,
they ought to be temperate as well as
good "money-makers."
Let us see how really temperate they
are. 1 have before me a report of the
United States Inland Revenue Department which would make very interesting
reading for the honest but misinformed
friends of Local Option and thc Scolt
Act. In 1899 when only six million
people were under prohibition laws the
consumption per capita in the United
States of malt (beer) and spirituous
liquors was in the proportion of 15.8
and 1.18 gallons. In 1909 when over
forty millions were living in dry territory
and the anti-Saloon I.eauge was at the
heighth of its power, I find the figures
increase to 21.09 and 1.51 gals, respectively. This is certainly an enormous
increase in the consumption of beer.
But these are the facts.
For Mr. McRae's information and for
any who are interested in the question
of "Economics and the Bar" I may say
that this year's blue book of the Inland
Revenue department kept at Ottawa is
also very interesting.
Here I find that in spite of thc Local
Option movement in the provinces of
Ontario and Quebec and the "wonders"
that Dr. Spencer claims for the Scott
Act in the Maritime Provinces the
consumption per capita of spirituous
liquors in Canada is greater than last
year. These are the figures: "Spirits
.815 gals., beer 5.276 gals., wine .097
gals." I may here state the Local
Option counties of California use eighteen
times as much wine as the Canadians.
On the whole, you will observe that
while the consumption of liquor has
slightly increased over last year, yet
we by no means keep pace with our
American cousins. And yet Mr. McRae
will hold them up to us as models of
sobriety and "money-making!" But
t hese are t he facts and facts are stubborn
things. It is true that this country has
not been carried away by the Local
Option "fad" as in the United States
and let us hope if the wave does strike
here, it will not increase drinking to
the alarming extent it has in that
country as the figures I have given
only too plainly show.
Let us work in the cause of temperance
along sane and sensible lines, let us
leach thc young that liquor in any form
is of little or questionable use, and t hat
it is a good thing to leave it alone. In
the meantime keep the traffic under
rigid municipal control. This according
to the greatest theologians, autesmm
and philosophers of the day is the only
solution of the most difficult question
with which mankind has to deal.
Sincerely yours,
A. A. Maclntyre

A Merchant Speaks of th* Value of
The Canada Temperance Act
In reply to your letter of the 28th
August, asking me to give you some
facts re the working of lhe Canada
Temperance Act in thc Eaat, I have to
aay that I have had about twenty
years' ex-ierii-nce with the working of the
Act in Nova Sculia.
The first few years of our work
was retarded by im-ierfeclions in the
Act,  which  have since been remedied
j by amendments and which now makes
the law much more easily worked. A
number of appeals were made by the
opponents of the law, but the decisions
obtnined in almost every case were in
favor of thc Act.
The Canada Temperance Act has
produced a wonderful change in many
towns and villages throughout the
Province.    When  formerly  liquor was
' openly sold drunkenness and disorder
prevailed on the occasion of all public
gatherings;   now, wherever the Canada
, Temperance Act is enforced, then- is
: quietness and order. I believe the
Act to be educative and a great help
in preparing the way for prohibition.
Merchants should vote for il because
the money spent for drink would be
used to purchase clothing and provisions.
Father* should vote for il because a
greal tcmptalion would be removed
from their sons. Every good citiien
should vote for it, because il would
raise the moral standing of the people
in every community where the law ia
enforced.

Superintendent .Phelan, of the Dominion telegraph lines, together with many
other people will be disappointed to
learn that his linemen were unable to
make wire connections between Stewart
and Goose Bay this winter, particularly
as Goose Bay has suddenly attained
much prominence owing to the purchase
of the Hidden creek properties by the
Granby Smelter prople.
W. Blackstock, the foreman for that
end of the line from Kitsumkalum to
Stewart, is back in town with the news
that heavy snows cut off all further
work for this season. He says that on
October 28th they were about to tackle
the summit dividing Maple Bay from
Goose Bay when there was a snowfall of
eighteen inches.
The altitude of the summit is given at
two thousand feet and as after this
first snow there was practically a continuous snowfall the work of construction had to be abandoned. This left a
gap of a mile and a half in the line from
Stewart to Goose Bay which in the spring
can be finished in a very short time.
The lino, however, was constructed
far beyond Goose Bay and reaches the
head of Alice Ar. \ so Mr. Blackstock
thinks that for this season the limit
was done in line construction. He has
not yet heard what progress was made
from the Kitsumkalum end, but is
confident that it will take but a short
time next spring to make the connection and give Stewart direct communication with the outside world.
DECISION   STILL   DISTANT
In Hays Port Arbitration Case G. T.
P. Witnesses to Come
Still the Hays Port case goes on
steadily. Examination and cross examination of witnesses is by no means
hurried. Mr. Noble gave evidence
from yesterday morning till this afternoon. The end is by no means yet in
sight as there are G. T. P. witnesses yet
to be examined.
CANT BALL UP NOBLE
Scotch Witness in  Hays Port  Case
Gives Amusement
"You can't ball this witness up,"
said W. E. Fisher of Alex Noble today
il. the Hays Port Arbitration case, after
a brisk fire of questions. Noble is
making a great show with his philosophic
replies, and non-commital Scotch way of
giving evidence.   Here is a sample:
Counsel: "Is there any pile timber
on the land there?"
Witness: "There may or there may
not be."
Counsel: "I ask you is there?"
Witness: "There may or there may
not be."
Counsel:  "But is there any?"
Witness: "There may or there may
not be."
And it might easily have been so on
ad. inf. had counsel pressed the question
In the same way.
Yesterday Mr. Noble said when asked
if he had held the Hays Port land as a
speculator that he wouldn't say.
"Life is a gamble anyway," he declared to the amusement of the court.
Nothing Heard of Escort
The railway tug Escort with her barge
the Georgia has not yet poked her
nose into the harbor, but there are no
misgivings as to her fate as hse is one
of the staunchest tugs on the coast. It
is believed she has put in somewhere
and has possibly had to send to Vancouver for somtehing to repair her
machinery.

HUMORISTS
Elsie���Ethel's marriage was dreadfully unromantic!
Ida���Yes; even the man she married
was the one she was engaged to.
Plumber���Have you got all we want

Boy���Yes.

A member of the stock exchange on
returning home one day last winter,
was tackled by his wife, who said he
had promised to buy her a sealskin
jacket.
"Yes, my dear, I did," he said; but
I have had such a bad day that I could
only afford to buy you an incandescent
mantle."
Stranger���Sir, do you remember giving
a poor friendless tramp fifty cents one
cold day last winter?
Jones���I do.
Stranger���Sir, I am that tramp; that
fifty cents was the turning point in my
career; with it I got a shave, a shine
and a job. I saved mymoney, went to
Alaska, made a million dollars, and last
week I came back to New York to share
my millions with you. But unfortunately, I struck Wall street before I struck
you���and���have you another fifty cents
that you copld conveniently spare sir.

GET A MOVE ON YOU!
Don't talk about the prize you'll win,
or how you will pursue it, for boasts
are like the chink of tin; don't talk���
get down and do it. Don't say you'll
cut the habits out, that make your
friends uneasy; just turn your conduct
face about���for talk is cheap and wheezy.
About your seedy clothes don't talk, and
say you'll soon be tony; go get the sort
of duds that knock���for promises are
phoney. Don't make some wild and
foolish break and then beg people's
pardon; such conduct makes them
fairly ache to plant you in the garden.
Don't try to tell a funny tale to friends
who mny be busy, or they will "ay you'd
in ja I if peeieiH were not dizzy.
Don t talk about yt ur own concerns to
one who's in a hurry; he doesn't care
three tinkers' derns about your woe and
worry. Don't blow a damp, hangover
breath into your neighbors' faces, or
they will wish that Colonel Death would
take you where his place is. Don't
talk unless the thing you say is truly
worth the trouble; for work'B the stuff
that puts up hay, and talk is but a
bubble.���Walt Mason.

SIMONS FAIR
THIRD  AVENUE, Between 6th  end   7th.
Agricultural resources, minerals, timber, coal, waterpower, fisheries, and
Scenery���these are the undeveloped resources that surround Prince Rupert
which formed the subject of Alderman
Naden's address to the Presbyterian
Club last night. A noble list of wealth
producers and Mr. Naden described
their extent throughout the land and
seas surrounding Prince Rupert, with
confidence. These resources are indisputably there, and Prince Rupert is
situated at the most central point in
Northern British Columbia for handling
them to advantage.
Wealth from the Farms
Farm produce from the fat lands in
the areas watered by the Peace, Skeena,
Liard and Fraser rivers with their
tributaries will contribute to the prosperity of the city. Spring rains and
summer sunshine on the well tilled soil
in the Lakelse, Kispiox and Bulkley
valleys will bring autumn harvests
golden alike for their growers and for
the trade of Prince Rupert.
Harvest of the Sea
Teeming seas within a few hours
-nn of Prince Rupert harbor will pour
;n to the lines of waiting fish care and
-uliI storage plants all the finny wealth
of-the deep. Why over in England today
Grimsby with fewer sea resources by
far, has leaped from a population of
16,000 to one of 130,000 on account of
the fish industry alone. Rupert will do
more thinks Alderman Naden.
Mines, Timber and Water
Precious store from the marvellously
rich mining districts surrounding Prince
1 Rupert will add richly to the growing
wealth of the city;  and the far ranging
: timber tracts of the surrounding districts will immensely increase the pros-
j perity of the business centre.    Water-
! power there is too, to develop, as pointed
| out  by  Mr. Williams after Alderman
| Naden's address, and Alderman Naden
has great  faith  in  the superb scenic
] wealth of  Northern  British  Columbia
to attract visitors from far and wide
who   will   in   countless   ways   benefit
Prince Rupert.
Who Owns It Now
A note of warning, however, Mr.
Naden did strike. Who owns all this
as yet undeveloped wealth? he asked, and
in answer he showed that a large pre-
centage of it is being rapidly taken
possession of by those who aim at
holding it for speculative purposes. The
timber especially has been grabbed.
Where until a few years ago not 10 per
cent of the timber was owned by speculators now nearly 80 per cent is so
owned. It was so also to some extent
with agricultural land, and other resources, and Alderman Naden held that
the citizens and inhabitants of these
districts which are among the richest
in the empire should be awake to the
direction in which they were trending���
the tendency of these valuable resources
to come into the hands of the few.
Might Defeat Itself
Real estate dealing in the city itself
he pointed out, might by the continual
raising of prices of lots, defeat its own
end, the prosperity of the city, by
making it increasingly difficult for the
humbler wealth producer to settle here.
An interesting discussion at the close
of the address, led by the chairman, Mr.
H. F. McRae, was taken part in by many
of those present.
