(Special to the Optimist!
Charlottotown, Feb. 9. - Considerable
excitement prevailed during the by-
election in the second disirict of Queen s
County. The Liberal candidate, George
W. McPhcc, barrister, defeated the
Conservative, John H* Burton, by a
majority o' 88 voice. At the previous
election the atanding of the purUes
waa Liberals 14, Conservatives 14. ine

iSpecial lo thi Optimist)
Woodstock, Ont., Feb. 10.- The Oxford police net wts thrown out this
afternoon and gathered in a goodly
number of the leading figures in thi
Oxford graft investigations. Quick action was taken in apprehending M. T.
Buchan, Byron McCarthy, and John
Young. The last named is charged
with offering money to the late jailor,
Cameron, for his job. The arrests
were startling in their suddenness as
the government wished to get. the men
before they could quit. It is believed
the crown is in possession of sufficient
evidence to convict the prisoners.

Women's Suffrage in France
Frame, which has already got
suffrage for me , has so far had no
women electors, municipal or national
A bill, is, however, now before the
chamber to remedy this defect in the
Constitution, and when it passes, as
it seems likely to do speedily, Frenchwomen will have the right to vote for
and be elected to tht municipal and
departmental councils. The Commission of the Chamber, whose report
emphatically endorsee the women's demand, takes in detail all the unti-suff-
rugisl arguments which controversy
has made us familiar with.
The argument that women, not being
able to fight have no right to voU���
an argument which one might suppose had u superficial show of reu-
son in a country whose troops aro recruited by conscription���is dismissed
with the ported answer that physical
unfitness which debars thousands of
Frenchmen every year from a military
service does nol disenfranchise them.
It might bf added, thure as here, that
the clergy vote but do not fight. And
in France, 100, ollicers, though they
answer completely the fighting tost,
have no vote'. "It must be remembered, too," adds the report, "tha,. women are the mothers of sotdicrs." Tht
political constitution of France makes
the grant of the municipal and departmental franchise an . vnt neurer step
to thc full franchise than it is here.
As th-ire is no prupmy qualification,
marriage will make no difference, und
in Franco all married women, whether
they are pro|>erty-holders or not, will
have the vote. Mort important still
is the fact that by the bill women become eligible for seats on councils Bnd
can become senatorial electors. Once
they can exercise their voles to elect
members of the second chamber of thu
state, they cannot long be denied their
right to elect members of the chamber
of deputies.
Schooling Not Essential

splendid attributes in uny girl's equipment for life, but they are no. a necessity

A Needlework Hint
Just at present there is in all noodle-
work a tendency to revive old designs
thut makes the use of old china | ur-
ticularly opportune. Those who have
in the family���as who does not to some
extent -very beautiful pieces of china
will find if particularly pleasant to reproduce the designs.
On linen, white, croam or color��d, the
designs are very attractive wrought with
colored thread in the same tones as those
ustd on the china. The old willow pattern has been used most effectively on
white linen for sash curtains in a girl's
sitting room and also for pillows. If a
large platter having the willow pattern
be taken the embroiderer will find no
difficulty in tracing the design. Part of
the design may be chosen and other
parts left out completely if one desires,
and this single design may be repeated
as often as the shape of the article to
be embroidered demands.

Washington, Feb 9.���One of the
most s. eciacular legal b .ules ever
waged between capital un organized
labor ho, reached its final stages in
the Supreme Court of the United Stutes.
Oral arguments have been hear in the
famous liliga ion by the Bucks Stove
and Range Com. ory of St. Louis,
Mo., against the Amtri.on Feder..tion
of Labor.
The contending forces started their
fight to determine the legality of the
"boycott." That was in thc Supreme
Court of the District of Columbia; but
when the c ntest was renewed before
the Supreme Court of the United Stutes,
t e main issue hud bivn cr.wde ouc
of the limelight by an incidintal one.
Now, the burning issue is whether the
princi. al officials of he American Federation of Labor are to go lo jail on
charges of contempt of court.
Because they failed to obey the injunction iss e by the District Supreme
Court in thc original case, Sumuel Gompers, president of the Federntion, is
undir sentence to serve twelve onths
in jail; John Mi.chcll, vi e-presideiu of
tht* Federal io. , to se. ve nine montlis;
und Frank Mo ris.*n, ils se rotary, to
serve six mun,lis.
Fighiing for the Americ n F.deration
of Labor und iis olliciuls ure Alton B.
Parker, former democratic president iul
candidate; Jut-kso, H. Rulston, Frederick L. Siddons, William E. Richardson
and John T. Walker. Opposed t . them
us the represelitu.ive., of the Bucks
Siove and Range Compuny ur Daniel
Duvc-nport und J. J. Darlington.
The Bucks Scove an Range Compuny
wus selling sloves und rungi * throughout the United States ai the time the
! suit begun. Il was doing a business of
j $1,250,000 a year. During tu labor
! troubles the compuny s.curwl un in-
j junction prohibiting the A. F. of L.
from putting the compuny's name
on lhe "We Lon't Put.onise" list.
This injunction wus not respected owing
to u clush of opinion in different courts,
und thc seiiutites for contempt followed.
ln fighiing ihe appeal, the Federation
is rually lighting u buttl uguii.st tht. use
of the injunction as a weapon in lubor
wars.

articles disposed of WeTo all manufactured by the residtms of Jie ReSurVu, and
that the weather wus extrtine'.y Cold,
ihe result of lhe sule was all that the
promoters expected. Thc fancy work,
made by former pupils of the indusiriul
schools, was v^ry much admired.

Women's Suffrage in France
Fran.i*, which has already got
suffrage for me , haa so far had no
women electors, municipal or national
A bill, is, however, now before the
chamber to remedy this defect in the
Constitution, and when it passes, as
it seems likely to do speedily, French
women will have the right to vote for
and be elected to tin municipal and
departmental councils. Tho Commission of the Chamber, whose report
emphatically endorsee, the women's demand, takes in detail all the anti-suffragist arguments which controversy
has made us familiar with.
The argument that women, not being
able to fight have no right to vote���
an argument which one might suppose had a superficial show of reason in a country whose troops are recruited by conscription���is dismissed
with the put-feet answer that physical
unfitness which deburs thousands of
Frenchmen every year from a military
service does not disenfranchise them.
It might be added, there as here, that
the clergy vote but do not light. And
in France, too, officers, though they
answer completely the fighting test,
have no vota. "It must be remembered, too," adds the report, "that women are the mothers of soldiers." The
political constitution of France makes
tho grant of thu municipal and departmental franchise an i.ven nearer step
to the full franchise than it is here.
As there is no propirty qualification,
marriage will make no difference, and
in Franco all married women, whether
they are property-holders or not, will
have the vote. More important still
is the fact that by the bill women be-
como eligible for seats on councils and
can become senatorial electors. Once
they can exercise their votes to elect
members of the second chamber of thu
state, they cannot long bc denied thuir
right to elect members of the chamber
of deputies.
A Needlework Hint
Just at present there is in all needlework a tendency to revive old designs
that makes the use of old china | ar-
ticularly opportune. Those who have
in the family���as who does not to some
extent ���very beautiful pieces of china
will find if particularly pleasant to reproduce the designs.
On linen, white, cream or colored, the
designs are very attractive wrought with
colored thread in the same tonus as those
used on the china. The old willow pattern has been used most effectively on
while linen for sash curtains in a girl's

LABOR'S GREAT
LEGAL BATTLE
INJUNCTION IS ON TRIAL IN THE
U   ITED STATES
Cass Arises Out of the Sentence of
Gompera, Morrison nnd Mitchell
for Contempt in the Bucks Stove
Case.
Washington, Feb 9.���One of the
most s tiCtacular legal b .t,.les ever
waged between capital an organized
labor ha, reached its final stages in
the Supreme Court of the United Stales.
Oral arguments have been hear in the
famous litiga ion by the Bucks Stuve
and Range Com ary of St. Louis,
Mo.! against the Amtri.an Federation
of Labor.
The contending forces started their
fight to determine tbu legality of the
"boycott." That was in the Supreme
Court of the Disirict of Columbia; but
when the c ntest was renewed before
the Supreme Court of the United Stales,
t e main issue had lnvii cr wde out
of the limelight by an incidt ntal one.
Now, the burning issue is whether lhe
princi. al officials of he American Federation of Labor ure to go lo jail on
charges of contempt of court.
Because ihey failed to obey the injunction iss e by the District Supreme
Court in ihe original case, Sumuel Compere, president of the Federation, is
under sentence 10 serve twelve onths
in jail; John Mi.chell, vi. ..-president of
the Federal io. , to se.ve nine months;

The truth is hard to bear.
A correspondent suggests i ut the city council should bt* termed "The I'airon-1
age Committee" because they have done Uttlu else so far but provide jobs for
their Mends, but this we will no. do.   "Nothing else" was the phrase used by our j
correspondem but thi'' is no. strictly correct.   Besides which, we are very anxious
to help and encourage  the   council   to   do something.     Now ihat they have]
provided fur Mr. Munson to go uwuy lo Victoriu for two months on salary to look
after his other job. abolished ihe city's |-ermanent legal department and put the 1
legal work on the patronage list, afforded protection to the parlor house keepers,!
rcsurr cti-d Alderman Newton's disputed account antl sent il on to the Finance
Committee of which Alderman Newton is a member, giving the other members!
of the committee powtr to uci nlthough the case is entered in the courts, taken
away the City Engineer's power to upiioint his staff, and put the appointments
on the patronage list, they muy now gei down to business.
There is one thing lhe Council has done for which it deserves credit; ii has
faced the demand of the workers. It. is true that the council balked lill Alderman
Puttullo forced their hund by moving for a committee of investigation, and that
Aldermun Newton after supporting the motion, say s he and those of his colleagues
for whom he s|ieaks only supixirtcd the motion 10 "sidetrack the question." It
is irue thai at the lust minute lhe proceedings were only prevented from further
delay by the courtesy of a member of thc Optimist stuff, who consented to act as
official stenographer as ihe committee had neglected to provide a recorder. But
we would not deny thc council n. credit, nnd will always be willing to strain a
poinl to award them all ihe crcdil we can.
For nearly a momh thc Oplimist hus suffered inconvenience and risk from the
inadequate wuter supply while tht new council fiddled uwuy with questions of
patronage. Wc made no protest. In our own hearing, in asking for our support,
Mr. Munson definitely promised lhat he would have ihe electric light on within
ten days of his election. We believed him. Wc look his word for it. Bui what
ha happen d? The first Jung Mr. Minis, n did after his election was lo go away
to Victoria and It uvi us to get along in the dark.   As Browning would put it:
"Just for a handful of silver he left us,
Jusi for a bauble to stick in his cap."
But did we kick? Though the ten days since January 12th must be nearly
up now, as Heaven is our wiinestt, we muke no attack on thc council. In a hundred
ways we have showed admirable restraint. We still believe that when the council
has settled the important mailers of patronage, they will take up ^somo of
the municipal problems.
ln this connection our own generosity hus not been alone. The whole press
of Prince Rupert has shown kindntis to the council. Even Alderman Newton
sinct the new council cume in has ceased to fulminate against lhe electric light
delays. The man who was sure ihul there was an attempt on the part of several
honorable cilia ns to steal the telephone franchise stands quietly by while the
council plans to take the disputed Empire Publishing Compuny's account from the
courts und pay it, on thc ground that it if goes to court lhe Judge would have to
find that Aldermun Newton's company had no legal cluim on the city.
Tho whole press of Prince Ru|-cri has lieen very good to the council. It would
huve li en a gootl enough joke had any alderman raised a squeal ai the press. From
Alderman Newton it ii uprourously funny.

The Rainiest Spot on Earth
Writing io tin* Optimist from Cobble Hill, Mr. ('. H. Si-hrii-ln-r Hit-lows a state-
nii'iH from a retired Hritish naval officer in a discussion as to thi- rainiest spot
on truth- Hawaii hits a rainfall of 216 inches, while Maury in his Physical Geography of ihe Sea gives the rainfall of Chi rra-ionju, a mountain in India as 606
inches, all of which falls between the months of April and October, during tho S. W.
monsoon.
Hut the officer in question, Lieutenant E. P. Tomkinson quotes tht observations of ('ii|>iuin.H Fitzroy and Hall who measured on the west coast of South America near Cap* Horn an annual rainfall of 1,368 inches.which he supplements wilh
his own experiences.
After reading which, as Mr. Schrieber remarks, wc may all thank Heaven
we live in a dry climate with only 108 inches of rain.

REPORT SIX FEET OF SNOW  IN
PLACES
Supt. Mehan Believes That the
Worst of Winter Season Is Now
Over���Will Be Ready for the-Next
One.
Mr.  Mehan, the general superintendent of the G. T. P., Mr. McNichol,
and Mr. Van Arsdoll, who have been
up thu line for thc past len days returned
| lo the city last night.
Mr. Mehan reports that the weather
up the line as far as the 85 mile post
| is very severe.    They encountered  a
tremendous fall of snow���in some places
I it was as deep as six feet���and plenty
| of wind to heap it up in drifts.
The object of the trip was to extend
the new rotary snow plough.   A slight
mishap, which under normal conditions
��� might have been easily repaired, befell
j the plough when they were well up the
1 line.     Under   thu   terrible   conditions
prevailing, however, it was decided not
to proceed further but  to come back
to the city.
Mr. Mehan expressed the opinion
in conversation with the Optimist this
morning that by next year they would
bo ready for the very worst that the
winver season could bring them. The
worst place on the line lies between the
41 and 44 mile posts. There the line
is banked on either sido by precipitate
slopes from which the snow slips down
on to the cuttings. Just before tho
very severe weather set in the work of
erecting snow sheds was started. It
is proposed to build three sheds there
and one of them is almost completed
now. It is Mr. Mehan's first experience
of the winter in these parts and his
plans arc formulated now to prevent
the snow from banking on the railway
cuttings and blocking the passage.
It is Mr. Mehan's intention to go up
the line again in a few days. He believes
that the worst of the season is now. over.

He Was the Only Russian on the

A. Glovonoff, u Russian workman, is
now lying in the Grand Hotel suffering
from a broken ankle which he sustained
yesterday afternoon while working with
the station gang on thc Fifth street
contract.
Language ��� not bad language- was the
cause of the trouble lhat ended so unfortunately for him. Hc was the only
Russian on the job, and although he
speaks English fairly well he is hard
at Scandinavian tongue, of which all
his colleagues on the job were native
exponents. They were removing a
boulder, and not understanding their
intent he inadvertently got in the way
of the heavy rock, which, when the
jerk came completely broke his ankle.
Suffering much pain he was removed
to the Central Hotel on a sleigh where
he is now receiving medical attention.

Lawyer���Now what did you and ihe

L. -No, no; I mean what did you
talk over?
W.-~-We talked over the tilliphone,

The Judge���Can you describe any specific aci of cruelty on the part of your
husband?
The Complainant- I should say I can
Whenever he had anything to say to me
he'd call me up on the telephone and
say it and then disconnect before I had
a chance to talk b..ck at him.
"Do you want cheaper postage?"
"I don11 know," replied the man who
considers only his own interests. "1
don't write many letters myself, and I
don't see why I should be eager to make it
easier for ihe men who send me bills."
A worthy and provident man went to
his legal adviser to make his will. He
gave many instructions, and it stemed
.hat everything was arranged. The lawyer began to read over his notes, and
put a point to his c i nt.
"Oh���yo i have made provision for
your wife in the event of her surviving
you . Does that remain unaltered if she
should marry again?"
"No, no," said the client, eagerly.
"What am Heaving her? One thousand
dollars a year. If she marries again
make it $2,000."
The I wyer thought there must be a
misund* ir-tanding, and pointed out that
most men put it the other way about.
"I know," said the client, "but the
man who takes her will deserve It."

London, Feb. .8���A new club formed on a novel plan was inaugurated in
London recently by a dinner. Its name
is the Agenda Club and it is an organization of altruists, each of whom
pledgi-s himself to help by some small
definite service in his own particular
line the accomplishment of some clearly
defined object of agendum.
Already thc club has made a successful appeal to a large number of
p rsonv. Time will show how far
the club wii.l bring about fulfillment.
The organizers believe if the ca-
paciiy of resourcefulness, research, courage, and persistence which is applied
lo the daily production and distribution
of standard household commodities is
applied to an idealistic effort toward
getting certain things dore which ought
to be done and which every one would
be glad to see done, we migh* hope to
see a betur and happier England.

WONDERFUL PROGRESS
Made by Manufacturer, of Ready to
Wear Clothing
During the past few years the wonderful development along all lines of
human endeavor has bren very strikingly
illustrated in perfecting the science of
clothes building. A few years ago
ready made clothing was a very poor
article indeed and lucky wus thc man
so constructed by nature that he would
fit the Hand-me-Downs offered. This
has all been changed. When one visits
the up-to-date clothing establishment
of today they will find not only the
chest measurement on every suit but
what is far more necessary, the different
types, that is, the tall slender man wil
find a type especially designed for long
men, and likewise the corpulent, short,
and young men's types, until almost
eny build of man can be perfectly fitted.
These   features   are  very   promini.nl
in the new spring stock just received by
Messrs. Sloan & Compuny from thc
Lowndes Compuny of Toronto who arc
the originators ot bench tailored, ready
to wear clothing in Canada. In placing
the order with the tailors for this stock
no feature known to tailoring science
has been overlooked and as a cold
business proposition one should na these
garments before buying, es|iccially us
the concensus of opinion seems to lie
that they arc ihe most beautifully
tailored and most cleverly styled garments produced in this country**
