,AB0R MEN HOLD MEETING
TO ORGANIZE WORKING MEN
lany   Excellent   Speakers   Argued on  the Relative
Merits of the American Federation of Labor and
the Industrial Workers of the World���No
Decision Reached by the Meeting
| The   unorganized   labor   of   Prince
upert hesitated about being organized
the meeting held last night in Car-
enters' Hall, although D. 0. Keyser,
liciiil organizer of the American Fed-
tion of Labor, made a long speech
planat ory  of  that  organization  and
vited those present to come forward
sign the roll of membership.   This
because one of Mr. Keysers state-
its was   called in question by men
lo preferred  the  Industrial  Workers
| the World, and a lengthy discussion
Lota of Good Speaker*
It was a large and representative
eting, over a hundred being present,
; them being some excellent speak-
i well posted on industrial economics.
argument began immediately after
opening speech  of  the  organizer
an*) lasted until eleven o'clock, unto
which hour about half of the men were
so keenly interested that they stayed
to see the finish. Those advocating the
I. W. W. proposition seemed to have the
more speakers. They pitched into Sam
Compere in great shape, several stating
that the lived in luxury with a salary
of $5000 a year and was reported to
have thriftily saved up between four
and five millions.
The other side ignored these insinuations, their replies being from the
philosophical standpoint that the Federation of Labor was not perfect and
neither was the I. W. W., but both
were steps in the right direction toward
the organization of all labor, which it
was conceded was the most important
of all points at the present.

The Start in the
Civic Campaign
	
The first signs of a contest in
civic affairs are now in evidence.
Several petitions are being quietly circulated round town by the
friends of Mr. Wm. Manson, M.
P.  P.,   inviting the  member to
run for Mayor at the forthcoming
elections. These are to be laid
before Mr. Manson on his return
from Stewart next week.
(CONTINUED ON PAGE 8.)
EARTH  MAY  BE  DUMPED
Citizen.   May   Use   "Fill"   at   Hay*
Cove Circle
Muskeg and earth excavated in improving lots may be dumped at Hays
Cove Circle, and no charge will be
levied by the city for such dumping
The fill at Hays Cove Circle is the
nearest the city engineer can find
available for this purpose; and while
regretting that no more conveniently
situated spot could be found for some
lot-improvers, the city council are agreed
that intending builders can probably
not find a better place anywhere.
COUNCIL WILL BRING IN
CHILDREN'S CURFEW BY-LAW
Approve the Suggestion   of   the School   Board  and
Teachers That Youngsters Should Not Be
Allowed to Roam the Streets
at Night Unattended
"Girls and boys come out to play
The moon doth shine as bright as day.
Leave your supper and leave your sleep,
And come with your playfellows in the
street!"
This is a reprehensible rhyme, children,
and if you have read it, you are to
forget it instantly. For the city council
of Prince Rupert is going to introduce
a "Curfew By-law" on the recommendation of the school board and school
teachers. The school board secretary,
C. H. Sawle, has written to the Mayor
and council about it, and the verse
you ought really to remember is the one
beginning
"The curfew tolls the knell of parting
day."
which of course every schoolboy knows.
Must Go Home Early
When that curfew by-law goes through
boys and girls will not be allowed
to frolic on the streets up till all hours
of the night. They must go home
early. It will be dangerous to go home
in the dark. The Mayor says so, and
Alderman Naden togethir with Alderman Pattullo and Alderman Mobley
most heartily approve. The city solicitor will be requested to frame a
Curfew By-hitf which will be introduced
in council, and put through at an early
date.
Goodbye, Moont
Then no more skylarking for boys
and girls, when the stars are twinkling,
and the lanterns go glimmering along
the plankways. The night is for grownups,���aldermen and policemen (who will
take, good care of any youngsters they
find breaking the by-law) and newspapermen of course who have to look
after the aldermen and the policemen.

MAN KILLED AND TWO INJURED ON RAILWAY
Accident at Mile 77 This Morning---Collision Between Hand Cars
-���Men Are Said to Have Been Racing---Tom Nekich
Died While on the Way to the Hospital
NAMES OF THE VICTIMS
Killed
Tom  Nekich,  aged  about  thirty,
Scandinavian.
Injured
John Davi.on;   leg broken.
M. Myros,  injuries to the head.]
Three men were seriously injured
on the railway, one of them dying on
the way to town and others being taken
to the hospital with broken bones.
As to how the accident occurred the
statements at present are conflicting.
Superintendent Mehan said he had been
informed of the accident but at the
time of speaking had no details. As
he understood it a number of men on
hand care had been racing to see which
gang could get in first, and one car had
run into the other.
The deceased was thrown off when
the collision occurred and his head
struck a rock. He was lifted on the
car and brought back to this city but
died on the way. He did not know
the name of the dead man but was
opening an enquiry.
Dead Man If Tom Nekich
Provincial Chief of Police Wynn
supplied the name of the man, which
ia Tom Nekich. He said Coroner
McMullin was at Stewart but would
be back Sunday and would decide
whether an inquest is necessary.
Body Was Still Warm
Dr. Cade amde an examination of
the body of the deceased immediately
after its arrival here. The body was still
warm but he expressed the opinion
that death must have been instantaneous. The man's neck was broken.
In addition to this he was badly bruised
about the head and the left aide of the
face. He must have fallen upon his
head as no bones of the body were
broken, and undoubtedly the cause of
death was the severance of the spine
at the neck.
Deceased was a big, strnog, finely-
formed man of about thirty and of
dark complexion, and is believed to
be a Scandinavian.
Were the Men Racing?
It is said that the foreman has orders
that when gangs of men are going out
on the hand care, each car is to be started
at an intermission of fifty yards. Whether this was done in the present case, and
whether the men were racing, as is
often the case, will come out in the
evidence at the inquest.
Dr. Eggert is in attendance on the
two injured men at the hospital. They
are aaid to have broken legs.

TWO MILLION
FEET OF LUMBER
WILL   BE   ORDERED   FOR   CITY
IMPROVEMENT
Tenders to Be Called For, but
Lowest or Any Tender Need Not
Necessarily Be Accepted ��� Aid.
Lynch Make* Explanation.
Two million feet of lumber required
for the city improvements plunn^
(exclusive of Kelliher street, Eleventh
avenue, and Center street) will be ordered after tenders have been called
for and considered for this material.
Aid. Lynch explained the advisability
of getting this lumber at last night's
council. He moved that tenders bc
called  for.    In seconding the  motion
Aid. Pattullo made the proviso lhat the
lowest or any tender need not necessarily
be accepted, and with this addition the
motion was carried.
SKEENA BRIDGE DELAYED
Owing   to   Depth   Compressor  Will
Have to Be Sent In
On account of having to go down
fifty-four feet to reach bed rock for
the piers of the bridge across the Skeena
eighteen miles down river from Hazelton,
instead of only about twenty feet, which
the first tests indicated, the work will
in all likelihood have to go on for another
year. The machinery now on hand will
not handle the work as it is necessary
to put in an air compressor and sink
a caisson th bed rock. The tunnel at
Kitselas will in all likelihood be done
before navigation opens and the compressor there will then be moved to the*
bridge.���Omineca Herald.

LIST OF VOTERS
Vice-President Chamberlin and Chief
Engineer Kellihan Go Beyond End
of Steel���Are Satisfied With Prog-
re.* Made.
Superintendent Mehan's special train
got in at 7:45 last evening, with the
superintendent and his guwts Vice-
president Chamberlin and Chief-en-
gineer Kellihan. They had been to the
end of steel and beyond. Both gentlemen expressed satisfaction with the work
done and the outlook.
Mr. Chamberlin went direct to the
steamer Prince Rupert for dinner and
before the boat pulled out, expressed his
satisfaction with what he had seen
along the line, Baying he had no reason
to change his estimate as to the date
when the line would be completed. The
tunnel work was well in hand and would
be proceeded with this winter. The
construction of the Skeena bridge, he
was sorry to say would be delayed
some, owing to the necessity of getting
in a compressor to bore out the foundations for the piers.
COURT OF REVISION APPOINTED
BY CITY COUNCIL
Consists of Major Stotk, Alderman
Mobley and Aldermun Mclntyre.
Court Will Hold a Session on
December 10th.
Mayor Stork, ild. Mobley and Aid.
Mclntyre have been elected to form
the Court of Revision to look into the
voters' list on December 10th. The
appointment was made at last night's
council meeting on the recommendation
of the city solicitor in order that the
arrangements and necessary advertising
for the Court of Revision may bc
carried out in ample time; a suggestion
approved by the council.

Unless the owners of overhanging
signs above the sidewalks have these
removed in three days they will be
summonsed to explain their neglect of

warnings have been in many cases
disregarded so far.

Social Notes
Mrs. Donald McLeod entertained a
number of friends informally at a
bridge party yesterday afternoon.
Freak Hat Is Passing
Mrs. Jesse W. Tobey, instructress in
the department of domestic science of
the Teachers' College of Columbia University, who returned from Eurpoe at
the beginning of the month, is being
widely quoted by the city and outside
press on the subject of millinery. She
said that the freak hat was passing.
The time was coming when each woman
would wear the hat that was becoming
to her own particular style, regardless
of the extreme fashions.
She had found that Parisian women
of taste regarded the American women
in Paris as more stylish that the Parisian women themselves. There was
little doubt, Mrs. Tobey said, that
eventually New York would be the
renter of fashion and would dictate the
styles of the world.
This may be all very well from a
teacher's view point, but as long as
Paris remains the universal hub of
fashion, so long will American women
of means prefer Parisian styles in
everything pertaining to women's wear.
As women of small towns and cities
rush to the large cities for their styles,
so will women of the large cities emulate
Paris and ropy her styles. ���The Millinery

of their children have their quivers
full of them too. A few years ago his
eldest son was in Canada and in the
course of conversation stated that he
had ten. He seemed an ordinary good
sort, such as one might meet anywhere.
He had come out to see what the United
States and Canada were like and incidentally to see how the Doukobor%���
his countrymen���were getting on. His
visit was suggested by Prof. Mavor of
Toronto University, who was instrumental in the Doukobor immigration.	
For the Housekeeper
Put a knuckle of veal in a soup ket
tie with whatever vegetables are convenient, these having been cooked
previously. Pour over this half a gallon of water and let simmer gently until the meat is done. Strain the broth
through a cloth into a bowl and let
stand until cold. Then remove the lay
er of grease from the top and put the
broth into a saucepan on the fire,
When it comes to a boil add enough
tapioca to thicken the soup. Let it boil
for twenty minutes and turn into a hot
tureen.

A New Way to Pick Partners
An ingenious woman has hit on a
I novel way to pick partners at evening
I parties.   She asks each girl to bring the
' earliest picture of   herself   obtainable.
The pictures are numbered, the hostess
having a list of each  name opposite
the number, so when the lime comes
for making revelations she can do it
quickly and with certainty.
Just before time for the game or refreshments for which partners are necessary pass a basket or tray with the
pictures turned face down, ask each
man to draw one, and find the original.
As a method of finding affinities it
beats the old fashioned formula of the
infallible method of choosing a good
wife. "Tie a bandage across your eyes
and grab for the first woman you can
catch."
Put two ounces of butter into a
saucepan on a hot stove, and when
melted mix in one and a half ounces
of flour, a little salt, a little red pepper,
and a cupful of milk. Work these
into a firm paste, add three eggs, and
four ounces of grated cheese. Have
ready a saucepan of boiling water.
Take the mixture up in small quantities
in a spoon and drop into the water.
Boil for a quarter of an hour. Take
out, drain, pour over the noodles on.a hot
dish, and serve with a rich brown
sauce.

MUNICIPAL   ADl ERTISIXG
There is much good and one grave defect in the scheme of publicity which
was brought before the Prince Rupert Board of Trade at its last meeting.
The |OOd netMs no pointing out. The benefits of municipal publicity are many*
and obvious.
The defect in the scheme is that it does not provide for publicity, but merely
for the appointing of a publicity agent.
This defect is not a trilling one. Without a liberal appropriation to spend
on advertising, a publicity agent would be as helpless as a general without an
army, or a battleship without ammunition.
A good publicity agent ought to be able to spend many times his own salary.
He would r.ot be worth his salary if he could not.
The gratitude ol the community is due to the Prins-e Rupert Publicity Club
and the Board of Trade for having taken the matter up. But the problem is too
big for them to properly handle.
Would it not be better to let the matter rest until the City Council of 1911
is appointed, and let then the Council consider the advisability of opening up a
department of Publicity with an adequate appropriation?
We have much to advertise. Every cent of a liberal appropriation if properly
spent would come back again with interest. It would be unwise to entertain publicity projects in any but a whole hearted manner

Regarding the disposal of city garbage
muskeg, etc.. Captain McCoskie made
an offer by letter to the city council
this week. The offer was referred to the
city engineer for a preliminary* report.
i and both came before the council last
n-'ght.
Captain McCoskie's offer is simply to
i supply suitable scows for handling the
garbage, and to tow them regularly to a
' deep water dumping place; or to tow
scows supplied by the city for the same
purpose.
Colonel Davi�� after considering the
offer thinks the time hardly ripe for
the city to enter into such an arrangement. Muskeg, hs says, can be dumped
satisfactorily at present in fills for grade,
and there is not enough garbage to
necessitate the supply or construction
by the city of drop-bottom scows suitable for the purpose in view.
Both the Captain's proposition and
the city engineer's report on it have
been referrs?d to the health committee.

Chief McCarvell of the city police,
wrote to the i-ouncil last night strongly
recommending the system of li<*ensing
bartenders, and requesting the council
to have a by-law frami?d TO cover this
system in Prince Rupert. The by-law
will be got ready at the earliest possible
date. Aid. Pattullo moved that the
matter be referred to the Police Commission and Aids, Mobley stated that the
whole system of licensing by-laws in
the city would be remodelled as well.
The city solicitor will prepare the new
by-laws as ready as possible.
Mayor Stork remarks?d last night
that minors should be excluded from
public bars by the bartenders on duty.
The bartender when on duty is responsible for the conduct of the bar. he said,
and should exclude youngsters vigorously. The Mayor said the system of
licensing bartenders worked wdl in
Victoria.
Government Wharf at Stewart Completed Now
ADVERTISE   IN  THE

News that the Government wharf at
Stewart has been completed has been
received by Samuel Harrison & Co.
The last planks were laid yesterday, and
teams can now be driven right out to
the boats. This means that the mile-
long wade through mud from the steamers I
to the townsite is no longer necessary.
Those who have business in Stewart
rejoice accordingly.
Other signs of progress in Stewart
are the erection of the Fire Hall on
Columbia avenue which has now been
finished, also the putting in of the
sidewalk from the King Edward to the
post offis?e.

MUNICIPAL   ADVERTISING
There is much good and one grave defect in the scheme of publicity which
was brought before the Prince Rupert Board of Trade at its last meeting.
The good needs no pointing out. The benefits of municipal publicity are many
and obvious.
The defect in the scheme is that it does not provide for publicity, but merely
for the appointing of a publicity agent.
This defect is not a trifling one. Without a liberal appropriation to spend
on advertising, a publicity agent would be as helpless as a general without an
army, or a battleships without ammunition.
A good publicity agent ought to be able to spend many times his own salary-
He would not be worth his salary if he could not.
The gratitude of the community is due to the Prince Rupert Publicity Club
and the Board of Trade for having taken the matter up. But the problem is too
big for them to properly handle.
Would it not be better to let the matter rest until the City Council of 1911
is appointi?d, and let then the Council consider the advisability of opening up a
department of Publicity with an adequate appropriation?
We have much to advertise. Every cent of a liberal appropriation if properly
spent would come back again with interest. It would be unwise to entertain publicity projects in any but a whole hearted manner

Regarding the disposal of city garbage
muskeg, etc.. Captain McCoskie made
an offer by letter to the city council
this week. The offer was referred to the
city engineer for a preliminary report,
and both came before the council last
night.
Captain McCoskie's offer is simply to ,
supply suitable scows for handling the .
garbage, and to tow them regularly to a'
deep water dumping place; or to tow .
scows supplis?d by the city for the same j
purpose.
Colonel  Davis after considering the
offer thinks  the  time  hardly  ripe for;
the city to enter into such an arrangement.   Muskeg, he says, can be dumped .
satisfactorily at present in fills for grade,
and   there  is   not   enough   garbage  to
necessitate the supply or construction.
by the city of drop-bottom scows suit-'
able for the purpose in view.
Both the Captain's proposition and
the city engineer's report on it have
been referred to the health committee.

Chief McCarvell of the city police,
wrote to the council last night strongly
recommending the system of licensing
bartenders, and requesting the council
to have a by-law framed to cover this
system in Prince Rupert. The by-law-
will be got ready at the earliest possible
date. Aid. Pattullo moved that the
matter be referred to the Police Commission and Aid.. Mobley stated that the
whole system of licensing by-laws in
the city would be remodells?d as well.
The city solicitor will prepare the new
by-laws as ready as possible.
Mayor Stork remarked last night
that minors should be excluded from
public bars by the bartenders on duty.
The bartender when on duty is responsible for the conduct of the bar, he said,
and should exclude youngsters vigorously. The Mayor said the system of
licensing bartenders worked well in
Victoria.
Government Wharf at Stewart Completed Now
News that the Government wharf at
Stewart has been completed has been
received by Samuel Harrison & Co.
The last planks were laid yesterday, and
teams can now be driven right out to
the boats. This means that the mile-
long wade through mud from the steamers
to the townsite is no longer necsjssary.
Those who have business in Stewart
rejoice accordingly.
Other signs of progress in Stewart
are the erection of the Fire Hall on
Columbia avenue which has now been
finished, also the putting in of the
sidewalk from the King Edward to the
post office.

testerday morning after experting a
[lumber of properties in the Ketchikan
and Juneau districts.    He reports that
there  is   more   English   capital   going
n  thu  latter  country  than   probably
anywhere   else.     They   were   all   big
deuls,   too;    several   had   been   made
jjiis summer and others were just going
trough.
Big Deals a    Juneau
"Mining  around   Juneau,"   he  said,
tis looking remarkably  well.    Several
in dealt have gone through this summer,
arly all on English capital, and the
rork  that   has   been  done  since   has
turned   out well.   The ore, of course,
low grade, running from  $2 to $3
ton values, but it can be mined and
I for from 80c. to $1.30 per ton, and
Ibis   makes   mining   operations   there
profitable.    I notice that the monthly
tateinent of the  Treadwell  company
jave the ore values an average of $2.44
the ton and out of this a profit of
p ���: a dollar was made.
One Hundred Stamps Running
"The Perseverance mine is running
hundred stamps and has got the cost
)f mining und milling down to 70c.
he ton.   They have an ore body one
hundred  feet  wide,  which  is  easy  to
\ope antl break out, four mining ma-
nines  handling  five   hundred  tons   a
fay. the capacity of the stamps. The
ompany is driving a tunnel 12000 feet
id erecting a power plant on the beach,
ea water will then be used for milling.
^noi her company there, of English
apilal has just finished running a
inmcl :i00 feet and there is a great deal
y development work going on all over
district."
Goes to Goose Bay
Mr. Parker goes from here to Goose
Jay to ss'o how the development work
ins proceeded at his company's pro|>erty
here, and incidentally he referred to the
jrge deal recently made of the copper
laims on Hidden Creek by M. K.
[odgerl.   The sale was made by Rod-
tn about three weeks ago and it is
derstood the price paid was half a I
fcllion,  $400,000  being  paid  in cash j

DEFECT   IN  AMERICAN  SYSTEM
Condemned Congress Continues to
Govern the Country
A curious defect in the governmental
system of the United States will shortly
be in evidence, when the moribund
Congress assembles early next month
for its final session.
The electors have passed judgment
upon Congress and condemned it. A
new House of Representatives has been
elected, containing a Democratic majority. But that new House will not
assemble until March next. Meanwhile the present House with a Republican majority and Speaker Cannon
in full power will do business.
In like manner a president holds
office four months after his successor
is elected. Lincoln, when he was
elected the first time, had to wait in
absolute powerlessness while President
Buchanan did everything to strengthen
the South for the impending civil war.
ARBITRATION CASE ADJOURNED
Hays Port Arbitration Sit Again Tomorrow Morning
The Hays Port Arbitration Case
stands adjourned today as the County
Court room was required for the County
Court business. The arbitrators will
meet again tomorrow morning at 10: 30
to proceed further with the consideration
of the case which seems likely to be a
prolonged one.
It is stated that the fee per day for
acting as arbitrator in this case is $25..
The services of the three arbitrators
costs $75 for each day they sit whether
for a long session or a short one.

"What was it?"
"I asked Cashleigh to lend me $5

"Yes, sir."
"Well, you'll lose your job if you

An economical Irishman went into a
hardware store to buy a stove. The
clerk showed him some, but the Irishman was not satisfied with any of them.
Then, coming to a high-priced stove, the
clerk said, "Now, sir, there is a stove
that will save one-half of your coal."
The Irishman promptly said, "111

"I tell you what," said the sad-looking
man, "it's pretty hard for a man with

ADJOURNED TO MONDAY
British    House   of    Commons    Has
Passed the Financial Bills
(Special to the Optimist)
London, Nov. 24.���The houae of
commons last night passed the financial
bills and then adjourned until .Monday.
The king in the meantime will hold a
council and it is then believed that the
dissolution of parliament will be declared.
There is very little that requires an
answer in the latest effort of the Scott
Act advocates. The writer seems to
think that a man has no right to spend
his money as he sees fit. or "squander"
it as he puts it. We might ask who is
the best judge as to what constitutes
"squandering" money and what is
legitimate expenditure. We never
thought these coercionists would carry
their pretentions quite so far as to
claim the right of supervision over a
man's pocket book. If a man is known
to be a drunkard and to spend his
money on drunken sprees to the detriment of his family the Provincial
Liqour Act provides the machinery
for "siwashing" him as it is called. In
case this term should be unintelligible
to some of these late arrivals we might
say that it means putting a man on the
same level as a Siwash, which is the
British Columbia name for an Indian,
and hotels are forbidden to serve him
with liquor.
As to women being accosted by
drunken men when they come down
town and the children hearing profane
language, the police force is here for
the purpose of stopping just this and
the magistrate has already imposed
fines for profanity and is quite ready
to do it again if he is given the opportunity. It might be pointed out,
however, that men have been known
to swear even when not under the influence of liquor. In fact with some
men profanity is a term of endearment.
As for a man not being allowed to
make a ludicrous exhibition of himself,
it is hard to see how this can be stopped.
Men can do this in a number of ways,
even, it appears, in the newspapers.
In other things the writer seems to
agree with the conclusions drawn in the
article "Prohibition vs. Common Sense,"
especially in the view that a child
brought up in a town where he is not
exposed to temptation of any form
is very poorly fitted to grapple with the
world.
And now let .us ask these Scott Act
advocates to come out in the open
and tell the people what it is on which
they have challenged a vote. There
are scores of men in Prince Rupert
today who have lived under the Scott
Act in other places, and who would
do anything to keep it from ever being
adopted in this city, who have been
(ooled by these "temperance" people
into believing they are asked to vote
on Local Option. And in this they
have been assisted by a part of the
press of the city.    It cannot be too
clearly impressed en everyone that
this is the same old discredited "Scott
Act" of our boyhood, under which
"blind pigs" flourished on every hand
and children could not only see drunken
men on the street but could and did
buy liquor themselves. When a man
is breaking the law anyway he naturally
does not care what he does. This is a
fact as anyone who has lived for any
length of time in a Scott Act town
knows. Why do not these champions
of the Scott Act print the Act. The
reason is that they could not go around
telling the people that this city is only
a plebiscite and that a vote in favor
of the Act would only mean that the
City Council would be in a position
to pass on license or no license aa the
people should afterwards decide. Ia
this a moral device or does it come
with good grace from any person claiming the right to teach his fellowmen.
Let us be honest at least, even if we
don't always get our own way. And
we ask the people again to pay no
attention to anything anyone may tell
them to the contrary. ThiB fight is
for or against the Scott Act. Not
Local Option, not a Plebiscite, not a
mere expression of opinion, but a
deliberate attempt by a certain.section
of the people to enforce in Prince Rupert for the first time in the history
of British Columbia, the same old Scott
Act, which has proved itself a farce in
Ontario and in all the other provinces
where it has been tried.
(Special to the Optimist)
Ottawa, Nov. 24.���The champions of
Gilbert, the Bourassa member for Athabasca, continued their belittling tactics
of the Canadian navy at the adjourned
debate on the address from the throne
last night. The address had been moved
by Hal McGivern, of Ottawa, and
seconded by E. Lapointe, of Kam-
ouraska, the latter making an unusually brilliant speech for a new
member of the house. Blondin led the
fight against the adoption of the address by saying that the navy could
be only useful against pirates, as
Canada, was at peace with all the
world, and the fish pirates were being
dealt with without an expensive navy.
OSBORNE   PLUNKETT   DEAD

(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Nov. 24.���Osboenr Plun-
kett, one of the Conservative leaders
of the province, died suddenly yesterday
afternoon, in the Vancouver hotel. He
recently returned from the Conservative
convention at Nelson, where he contracted a case of pneumonia.

FINANCIAL BY-LAW
Authorizing   Borrowing   of   $125,000
Passes Third Reading
PERSONAL
Jim Sword, the well known mining
expert is in town again, this time to
look at iron deposits on one of the nearby
islands. Mr. Sword has made several
trips to Hazelton and Stewart in the
interest of Vancouver and Victoria
capital in the past two years. He speaks
very favorably of Prince Rupert's chances
for a smelter and says that Vancouver
capital is beginning to see the possibilities of big things around Hazelton.
S. G. Robertson, of Aldous & Robertson, the Hazelton real estate and
mining man, who sold the Scaleyville
townsite, has gone to Vancouver for
the winter. Mr. Robertson announcea
that the interior will experience a great
land and mining boom next year and
he plans to advertise the upper Skeena,
Bulkeley and Nechaco valleys extensively while below.
