RECIPROCITY TO COME UP
IN THE HOUSE TOMORROW
Ambassador Bryce on Way to Ottawa on  Important
Business���Mr. R. L. Borden to Offer Obstructive Motion���Sir Wilfrid
Laurier to Lead Debate
(Special to the Optimisti
Ottawa, March 7.-It is reported that
Ambassador Bryce will arrive here
from Washington on Friday to confer
with the Government in regard to ihe
reciprocity relations. It is said that his
object is to assure Sir Wilfrid Laurier
of President Taft's earnest desire to
carry the bill through Congress, and
that the delay made necessary in the
United States by the calling of an extra
session of Congress should not prevent
the Canadian House of Commons from
ratifying the agreement.
Ottawa, Latter. Mr. It. L. Borden
has   given   notice   in   the   House  that
lie will introduce a motion on Wednesday to the effect that a*; the reciprocity
proposals  have  not   been  earned   into
effect   as  yet   by   the   United   States
Congress, that  the agreement  be not
; ratitied by the Canadian Government
: until  it  has  first   been  ratified  by  the
| United State* Congress.
Hon. Mr. Fielding took the occasion
' to announce in the House that the
Reciprocity proposals will ex:ond to
I Great Britain and all the British Colonies,
'thereby constituting a considerable do-
, gree of free trade within the Empire.
It was also announced that Sir Wilfrid
Laurier will speak on the t-uestion

men on board of her were badly burned.
Another man Was llung overboard by
the explosion, antl just escaped drowning. The launch took fire, but was
laved by the prompt action of the men
aboard, ll is said that the accident
occurred through the leaving of a
gasoline can open after the boat's tank
had been filled.
The Agnes is a twenty-six foot launch,
and is thc property of Captain Chris
Christiansen who was on board at tlu-
time of the mishap. Neither he nor his
friends are seriously injured, bill lhe

THE BEATRICE
MAIL ROBBERY
P.    O.    INSPECTOR   HERE.     AU-
THORITIES ARE SILENT
Inveatigation Proceeding in Prince
Rupert and at Vancouver. Inspector Travelled up on Steamer Beatrice.   Purae. la a Clam.
"All that I cansay la that Mr. Klcichcr
the post office inspector is here investigating," said Postmaster Mcintosh
this morning tn the subject of thc
Beatrice mail robbery.
Exactly the same account of things
was given by the purser of the Beatrice
last night before she left for thc north.
He said also that he was a clam, appearances notwithstanding.
For the purposes of the investigation
it is necessary to avoid publicity ut the
present stage. Those who have the
matter in charge are politely silent.
Post Office Inspector Fletcher from
Victoria, is staying al the (irand Trunk
Inn. He arrived on the Beatrice last
night.
Prince l*ii|.i .i had belter get a water
power in sha|ie pretty soon io drive
an electric light and power plant. If
Alderman Hilditch is correct, the present
steam plant cannot be run economically
enough to serve the city's demand for
light and power. With coal at $1* per
Ion,   and  the   (Vagal  "f  lhe empl. yees,
etc, ii has been found thai the pieeenl
plant cannot sell current at a profit
earning prict ihat the people would
care to pay. Selling current at a reasonable price would mean ihat the city's
revenue from il would be nil.
"We must hunt for a cheaper power
at once." nya Alderman Hilditch
"We cannot afford to burden tin- lelt-
phi ne system with this light prt.position."
City Engineer Davis has been in
communication with Mr. M. A. Maxwell, Electrical Engineer nl Cainrose,
Altu.. with a view to having his <*x(H-rt
advice on tha poeeibtllty ol Increasing
I l.i* iiui|iiil ii. ligbl and power tn ni the
preaenl  plant.    Mr.  Maxwell offered
to coine here and advise for about
|1S0, Bl the rale of ISS per ilu). This
offer Alderman Clayton thought should
lie taken wRhoul delay. On thi* other
hand. Alderman Hilditch wished the
mailer delayed pending the Inveatigation of a city water power from which
to derive the electrical energy which
will be, and is tit w, reipiiretl for lighls
elevators, and Other plants in use in
the cily.
Alderman Claylon agreed 10 lhe delay
for this purpose.

WOULD LIKE COUNCIL TO
PAY OFF CONTRACTORS
Workingmen on  Strike Think They See a Way by
Which They Could Then Get 45 cent Rate-
No  More Strike Breakers to Come.
General and minor matters in relation
to lhe strike from the principal subjects
of discussion at the P. R. 1. A. meeting
last night in their hall on Third avenue.
Thajgeneral feeling of the meeting was
expressed by a speaker who said hut
the workers felt that the responsibility
for the strike lay entirely with the
contractors who still held out agai st
the 45 cent rate. The workers would
he surprised if the community of Prince
Rupert favored thc com nuance of the
difficulty, and wished to see the improvement work in the city to remain
at a standstill just to suit the pockets
of two or three contractors who were
not in business for their health.
Not Angry Wi;h Council
No kick comes to lhe city council
from the P. U. I. A. at present. The
workers' war is all against the contractors. It will bc found that the
strongest resistance to the increase
comes from the English-speaking contractors concerned. Today, in fact,
Lackovitch's gang resumed operations
on Thin) avenue near Fifth street and
an understanding exists that Louis
Vuckavitch will start his men up at
the 45 cent rate tomorrow. There is
a strong probability that M. Gurvitch
will   follow   suit.    Mclnnis   &   Kelly,
. P. McMordie, and S. H. Watson
hold out, and remark that it is easy
for the non-Knglish speaking contractors
to come through with the raise as they
work in the cuts with their gangs more
or less, and share and share with the
men.
The Strikers' Argument
The strikers maintain lhat whether
they gain the increase or not, the contractors stand to lose by their resistance
to it. If they try to break the strike
with mported ahor, say the men, they
will huve to use inexperienced rockmen
and laborers of the Vancouver "out
of work" class, clerks out of jobs, and
"down und outs." "Wc huve good
men, trained rockmen and miners in
our ranks," say the strikers, "and such
men cannot be brought in here for less
than $.'1.50 a day. Only a poor class of
men will scub on their fellow-workers."
Want   Council   to   Break   Contracta
An ideii which comes in for quite a
lot of approval among the workers is
that the city should urrunge to puy off
the conductors for the work already
done, and have the work completed
by the men on strike at the city wage
rate of 45 cents an hour The men
declare that ihey could put on two
shi ts if necessary, and do the grading
bet er and quicker than it is being done
now as they have the best rockmen
in their ranks.
No Newcomers Expected
It is not anticipated by the P. R. I. A.
thut any more labor will he invited here
from the south. "But if it comes, we
are ready with a welcome for it like the
last," they say. As a matter of fuel,
R. A. McMordie remarked this morning
that it was not the intention to bring
in any more labor to be absorbed by
the strikers. From the contruct rs'
point of view, he snid that the effect
of the strike was trilling. The work
ia of a nature to lie idle unharmed.
Only the interest on capital outlay or
plant is being lost. As for the $25 per
day penalty clause for delay over the
time limit, Mr. McMordie is of the
opinion that this is not likely to be
enforced. The time limit is liable to
be extended to compensate for delay
occasion d by city operations on the
contract area.

NAME WAS WRONGLY USED
Mr. John Goodman Wants Empire's
Report Corrected
Mr. John Goodman, proprietor of the
Grand Hotel, who was reported in
Saturday's Empire as having been
charged with permitting gambling on
his premises, has requested the Optimist
to contradict the statement. Mr. Goodman says he was not summoned to court,
either us u principal, or even ns a witness.
He was not present at the time the
police entered his house. The charge,
which wus against a guest at his house,
was dismissed, as thc game which the
men were playing when the police entered was not for money.
the girls of the dead line us often more
sinned against than sinning at first, and
said that the saddest lives on earth are
theirs.
Taking up the legal aspect of the evil,
L. W. Patmore expounded the law of
the Dominion on the subject showing
that it is comprehensive and leaves no
loophole for the offender male or female
to escape the punish menls of the Law.
"Bui," said Mr. Patmore, "the police
and magisterial system of any community is but the mirror of that community's moral sense." Therefore in
certain places, chiefly in Western Canada,
the segregation of vice is allowed. From
the historical point of view Mr. Patmore
spoke showing that the social evil has
bafflid various systems of dealing with
it. In Paris the home of the segregation
system the evil extends beyond its
segregation limits to nearly thrice the
extent of its roll within them. -Mr.
Patmore emphasised the importance
of keeping this evil well confined and
controlled. "Young girls," he said,
"seeing these women at concerts and
public assemblies, hearing their laughter,
seeing their jewels und fine dresses are
apt to bc led away to think lightly of
the life these women lead. They do
not know of the bitterness und degrn-
dution of the life. Whatever we do, and
I do not speak on the subject us a
dogmalisl in any sense, we must insist
that if these women, if tolerated are
kept off our streets and away from our
public assemblies."
Bishop Du Vernet's brief but eloquent
appeal to lhe moral and spiritual sense
of his hearers closed the meeting with a
strong note of confidence in the ultimate
triumph of purily und goodness through
educution und legislation under the
i power of God.

(Special to the Opiimist)
Lytton, March 7.- The authorities
are out searching for two Indians who
inflicted serious injuries on Constable
Fitzgerald on Saturday night. The
Indians were drunk and fighting. When
Fitzgerald was slipping the handcuffs
on one of them the other stole up behind
and plunged his jack knife into the
officer's chest near the heart.and then
i to his arm, severing an artery.
But for the prompt aid of Archdeacon
I'ugh who closed the artery, Fitzgerald
would have bled to death before medical
aid arrived. Both of the men got away
and look o thc bush.
Later. -The two Indians who stabbed
Constable Fitzgerald were captured this
morning. The condition of the officer
is still ve'y precarious.

has   given   notice   in   the   House  lhat
lie will introduce a motion on Wednesday to the effect that as the reciprocity
proposals have not been earned into

until it has first been ratified by lhe
United State* Congress.
Hon. Mr. Fielding look the occasion

Another man waa Hung overboard by

occurred through the leaving of a

P.   O.    INSPECTOR   HERE.     AUTHORITIES ARE SILENT
Inveatigation   Proceeding   in   Prince
Rupert and at Vancouver.    Inspector Travelled  up on Steamer  Be
atrice.   Purae. la a Clam.
"All that 1 can say is thai Mr. Fletcher
thc post office inspector is here investigating," said Postmaster Mcintosh
this morning tn the subject of the
Beatrice mail robbery.
Exactly thc same account of things
was given by the purser of the Beatrice
last night before she left for thc north.
He said also that he was a clam, appearances notwithstanding.
For thc purposes of the investigation
it is necessary to avoid publicity ut the
present stage. Those who have the
matter in charge are politely silent.
l'ost Office Inspector Fletcher from
Victoria, is staying at the Grand Trunk
Inn. He arrived on the Beatrice last
night.
Prince Kupert had better get a water
power  in  shape  pretly  soon  to  drive
'an electric light  and  power plant,    If
, Alderman Hilditch is correct, the prewnt
I steam plant cannot he run economically
I enough to serve the city's demand for
| light and power.   Wiih coal at $8 per
ton,  and the wages of the empi. yi-es,
etc., it has been ft.iiud lhat the Brecon!
plant   cannot   sell  current   at   a   profit
earning   prici   ihat   the  people   would
care to pay.   Selling current at a reason-
able price would mean that the city's
revenue from il would be nil.
"We must hunt for a cheaper i 0W0T
at once." :ays Alderman Hilditch
"We cannot afford to burden the tele-
phi ne system with this light proposition."
City Engineer Davis has bie.i in
communication with Mr. M. A. Maxwell, Electrical Engineer of Cainrose,
Alta., with a view to having his expert
advice on the possibility of Increasing
the output oi light and power from the
present plant. Mr. Maxwell offered
to Ciine here and advise for almut
$11-'/. at the rate of $25 per da}. This
'ilfer Alderman Clayton thought should
lie taken without delay. On the Other
hand. Alderman Hilditch wished the
matter delayed pending lhe investigation of a cily water power from which
to derive the electrical energy which
will be, and is now, required for lights
elevators, and other plants in use in
the cily.
Alderman Clayton agreed to the tlelay
for this purpose.

"The Critical Age"
The women of Germany are profoundly agitated by the book of the season
entitled "Th Critical Age." The
authoress i3 Mme. Karin Michaelis, a
woman past fifty. She is Danish by
birth, but her husband is German, and
she has spe t the greater pan of her
life in Germany and writes her books in
the German language.
In this extraordinary book, of which
hundreds of thousands of copies have
been sold, the authoress deals with the
tragedy of the woman who has passed
her fortieth year. It is not, strictly
speaking, a novel, but the confessions
of a middle-aged woman who endeavors
to tell the whole truth about herself
and what she concives to be the truth
about her sex. Here are some of the
characteristic passages of these strange
confessions:
"No man understands what the soul
of a woman is in reality. No man has
uny idea of the inner workings of a
woman's heart. Men pride themselves
on understanding women and are always
befooled in this respect."
"The whole truth is never spoken
between a man and a woman; women
are never quite sincere towards men,
because they are never quite sincere
towards themselves. Men can be honorable in dealing with themselves as
in dealing with others, but women do
not possess this capacity.
"A woman can love a man more than
her own life; she can sacrifice her time
her health, her virtue and her life for
him, but if she is a real woman she
can never take him entirely into her
confidence. She can never take him into her confidence because she dare not.
A man, on the contrary, even if only
for a short time, can love without re
serve. In this condition he allows himself to be unlocked like a chest of drawers
with many secret recesses. Then he
delivers himself and his past to the
woman he loves, but a woman never
gives more of her confidence than
reason permits. Her sense of shame
is quite different in character from a
man's sense of shame. She would
rather perpetrate an indecency than
confess to a man some of her secret
thoughts, which she would willingly
. nd without reserve communicate to
another woman."
"Every woman plays a, comedy at all
times of her life with smiles and with
tears. Smiling is a language which
none but women understand; woman
smiles at a great crisis, woman passes
over vices with a smile, and with a
smile she reflects the greatest virtues.
Men cannot smile at all; they are not
deceitful enough to smile, and with the
smile so it is wi h tears. Tears are a
gift from nature to women, and most
women use them to excite themselves
when they desire a scene."
Karin Michaelis devotes a large por
tion of her book to portraying the terrible grief of a woman who after pass,
ing the age of forty, still desires to be
admired and loved, and still has long
ings for all those delicate attentions
which men pay to youthful women, and
which are not endered to her because
her external appearance causes her to
be classified among the middle-aged or
elderly of her sex. This, according to
the authoress, is the critical age for a
woman,   when   she   passas   through   a
veritable inferno of mental suffering.
A woman loses the outside sign of
youth, but her heart does not grow old;
on the contrary, her desire for love and
devotion increases with augmenting
years.
on the critical age of woman, are based
on the life story of the heroine of the
book, who after being married for
twen-y-one years, obtains a divorce
from her husband just at a time when
she herself is entirely the critical age.
She desires to be alone, to withdraw
from the busy world and to enjoy
complete repose. She realizes her dream
of peaceful solitude and lives isolated
in a remote spot.
Her real reason for leaving her husband, was that she loved another, but
she deceived herself into the belief that
she desired repose. Her intention was
that the other man should learn nothing of her feelings towards him. She
desires to see no more men at ull, but
just to have repose and nothing but repose. But her feelings overcome her
and her loving heart cannot be lulled
into that repose which her soul desires. Suddenly she is overcome by an
unconquerable desire to see the man
whom she loves. She writes to him
that she loves him, and awaits his arrival wilh eager anticipation. He comes,
and with him comes disillusion, for he
loves her no longer. He had loved her,
but his love hus evaporated.
In her despair, the heroine appeals to
her husband to take her back. Here,
again, she experiences a deep blow to
her self-esteem, for hei husband is
about to marry another and much
younger woman. Then the heroine
leaves her reposeful home, and rushes
hastily through the busy world, plunging
herself into a turmoil of life, and activity
and excitement, in order to drown cares.

About Wrinkles
Wrinkles are not all to be charged
to thc account of Father Time. Many
children are allowed to form them by
sitting in incorrect positions or in a
glare of light, and by loose hair
allowed to blow continually in the face.
Children, too, are often encouraged to
make funny faces, which give the first-
foothold to the wrinkles.
Girls of fifteen or sixteen frequently
huve ugly lines around the neck or
a long wrinkle between the eyes. Youth
overcomes the effect, of these, but
youth gone they stand out unpleasantly.
Wrinkles re caused by bad eyesight, nervestrain, lack of sufficient
sleep, facial grimaces when talking,
habitual expressions. Much laughing,
quick temper, sullenness, melancholia,
sarcasm all write their lines on the
face. A woman told me once that
she didn't mind her wrinkles, for they
meant character. In spite of the disclaimer I noticed frequently, however,
that she did mind them. There is no
reason why anyone should like them;
they are not beauti ul.
By eliminating the causes,the wrinkle
itself m y be eliminated. It is possible
to experience all things and yet wear
a serene countenance. The secret is
self-control.

TO CARRY OUT
FRENCH'S REPORT
MINISTER   OF   DEFENCE MAKES
PUBLIC STATEMENT
Says Cavalry, Infantry and Artillery
Will Be Increased Along Lines
Suggested by Sir John French in
Report.
Ottawa, March 4. "We intend to
carry out Sir John French' report
so far as the whole force in Canada
is concerned; perhaps not as rapidly
as we would like, but not less rapidly
than we have been progressing In the
department in the past seven or eight
years. The artillery will he recruited
and increased to thc strength it should
have, and the cavalry and infantry also.
The necessary armament will be supplied
as rapidly as possible, and divisions
made as the General's report suggested."
This announcement was made by
Sir Frederick Borden, Minister of Militia
and Defence, to the annual meeting
of the Canadian Artillery Association
in the Railway Committee rooms of
the House this afternoon. Sir Frederick Borden stated that the report
had been eminently pleasant reading to
him, in so far as the artillery of Canada
was concerned, and he thought should
be very satisfactory to the militia as
a whole. General French had not
considered in his re|K>rt, and hati not
been expected to do so, the difficulties
existing in Canada as regards the forming of regiments. He had been expected to report on the force as he
found it, as a unit ready to take the
field, and he had done so.

MR.  SMITHERS' OPINION
Cha'rman    of   Grand   Trunk    Not |
Afraid af Reciprocity
London, March 2. -A. W. Smithers,
chairman of the Grand Trunk, presiding
at a meeting of the Engli h Association
of American and British shareholders,
said anent the reciprocity agreement,
that although there might be some
dislocation of individua interests for
a time, he thought the effect on Canada
us a whole must be good. They could
not yet estimate what would be the
effect of free commercial intercourse
between 8,000,000 of people in Canada
and 94,000,000 in the United States.
He predicted a great demand for capital
from Canada. Securities for all this
work would form, if properly selected,
some of the finest investments in the
world.

conceal,   at least not to take uny nolice of."
The above llgnlfieailt remarks fell from Alderman Clayton's lips lust night
when the report of the Committee to Investigate thc Wages of City Employees
was brought in. They establish direct confirmation of the suspicion that the
council in their treatment of the wage question has something to conceal.
Although it is quite true that the Industrial Workers with their 111 votes
put the present council with lhe exception of Alderman Puttullo1 into office, and
that the consideration for the service wus that the council should vote them increase
of wages, the council owe a duty to the other electors who supported them with
their votes. And they ure not ubsolved from duty to those who did not support
them with their votes.
Aldermun Newton at the Skating Kink told the Industrial Workers something
thai tiid not square with the committee's resolution. Why does he not tnke the
generul public into his confidence ulso? If the explanation hc gave the workers
is u true one, it is due to the workers that thc city ouncil should make that explanation publicly. If the explanation he guve the workers is a true one, il is due
to the ratepayen that the explanation should be given publicly.
Though challenged to give to the public the sumo explanation he gave to the
Industrial Workers. Alderman Newton shirked the challenge.
Abuse is no answer to the challenge. Alderman Newton and his colleagues
on the council had better acquaint the public with this secret arrangement they
huve decided to conceal. We ure nil anxious to know which has been fooled, the
Industrial Workers, the rutepuyers, or bolh.
No wonder little Willie prefers to visit relatives in Vuncouver instead of coming
home.
The White Slave Traffic in New York
i New York Evening Post)
"The crime of which you were convicted is one before whieh description falters,
ami therefore I must be sil nt. It is a crime lower than perdition and blacker
than despair. The people of this Stute of New York ure determined, if needs be
with iron boots, to stamp out this infamous crime."
This was tl.e just und proper language used by Judge Malonc in the Court
of General Sessions, in sentencing a young man convicted under the new "white
Slave law. Ami ihe sentence WM in uccordunce with the lunguugc, being Imprisonment for not less thun" len years, with a possible maximum of seventeen
y ars und six months. Every case of the kind will, we trust, be treated in precisely
the spirit of Judge Mulone's words und act. This infamy can be stamped out,
and il will be stamped out if police and judges do their duty us it has been d ne
in this case.

CROWD INSISTS

HELPED MAN AND HIS WIFE IN
HOMESTEAD RUSH
After Camping Out, Couple Were
DUpouested by Two Men. but the
Crowd Turned in and Handled the
Intruders.
Culgary, Alta., March 4. -After camping on the land office steps to be tlie
first to file on an abandoned homestead
in the Red Deei River district, for five
whole days and nights, Mr. and Mrs.
William Faux, of Didsbury, are now
having to fight hard for their position
in the face of the new land regulations
and two rivals, William Preston and
his son, of Three Hills, Alberta.
The pair have become familiar figures
on the steps during the last five days,
and the gallant way in which the wife
cheerfully relieved her husband and
took her tedious vigi aroused t he
admiration of the citizens. When,
therefore, an attempt was made to oust
her by brute force the sympathies of
the crowd were with her.
Both Preston and his son w re badly handled and they were compelled
to seek protection of the police. Following thia the new regulations prohibiting waiting outside land offices
were read, and both parties went away
but only temporarily. After dark
Presto tried to steal a march on Faux
but the others were awake, and ore-
tailed the attempt. The crowd was
particularly sore upon the Prestons,
who had to take refuge in the land office. They were released by the side
entrance.
Amid the cheering of the crowds,
Mr. and Mrs. Faux took their old position against the door and intended
remaining all night. The coveted piece
of land is in the Red Deer di.trict and
will now bc open for filing upon.

ALDERMEN GIVE VARYING REASONS
Alderman  Hilditch Pleads "Duty," Alderman Clayton the Increased  Daylight
While Alderman Morrissey Feels He Must Obey "the Mandate of the
People"���Council Decides Also to Reduce Bartenders' Fees
Last 'ht the amended Lirence
By-law introduced by Aldermun Hilditch passed through committee of the
whole, and its third reading. Clause
12 which as amended, Hives the bars
the right to remain open from 11 p.m.
till midnight on all week days except
Saturday, has passed in spite of the
efforts of the Social and Moral Reform
Association against it. Clause 8. which
provides that if a man gets drunk on
licensed premises the proprietor must
not turn him out wiihou a proper
escort was allowed to stand. It was
made very clear, however, that the man
must have got drunk on the premises
and not simply wandered in drunk
from the street. Licence fee for bartenders is reduced -to $2.50 per term
of six months.
Deputation Waa Heard
Bishop Du Vernet in an eloquent
speech set forth the desires of the party.
With him were L. W. Patmore, Dr.
Kergin, and D. McLeod. This small
deputation was chosen because it wus
felt that the case of the Moral and Social
reformers would carry on its merits
and not by force of weight of n mbers.
The Liquor Trade was represented by
a much larger deputation.
Acting Mayor Smith suggested that
the deputations be heard first of all
last night, and all the members of the
Social and Moral reform deputation
spoke at considerable length. The
Bishop appealed for care of the drunken
man in the interests o common humanity. He further appealed for 11
p. m. closing of the bars because the
last hour of the day is the most drunken
hour, and because all over thc Dominion
the trend is towards earlier closing of
the bars, and he d d not want to see
Prince Ruper take a retrograde step
by making the hour of closing later
again.
Mr. Patmore'a Protest
L. W. Patmore declared that he
thought the liquor men's petition meant
nothing. He did not believe lhat either
the working class or the bu>*incss men
of the city were really anxious to have
the bars open up to midnight. The
liquor men themselves alone wanted
the later hour in order to coin a little
more revenue. Mr. Patmore could
see little use in the extra hour to benefit
the community. As for Clause II, surely
the liquor men were not trying to press
that If they did then they must be
desirous of selling liquor to dlUt.ll
men.
Mr. D. McLeod and Dr. Kergin spoke
in strong support of the principles of
the Moral and Social reform party in
regard to the liquor traffic in the city.
Mr. McLeod suggested that the matter
be referred to the people.
Heard the Liquor Men
For the liquor men J. Y. Rochester
spoke briefly, and S. Corley at greater
length. The appeal of the trade was for
a fair deal. The liquor men he said
they paid high for their licences, business was not what it might be, newcomers to the city often came at night
and met with closed bars and a dreary
prospect. It gave a bad impression. To
have the extra hour before midnight
would lend to help the city all round.
As for Clause 9, the Bowser Act prohibited the sale of liquor to drunken
men. It was rather hard if lhe bar
proprietor had to look after a man
who hud been made drunk in a blind
pig, or in his own shack with a bottle
purchase of liquor.
Who  la  Responaible?
Acting Mayor Smith said here lay
a wrong impression. It was only if
Ihe man wire made drunk on the
premises that the proprietor was responsible for his sufi'iy. Not if he
wandered in drunk. Mr. Corley said
he always did look after drunks, and was
perfectly willing to look after all men
made drunk on h>s liquor. But you
could not hire a man to sec drunks
home.
When the matter of the Licence
came to Ihe committee of the whole
Alderman Hilditch spoke in favor of
the retaining of Clause 9.    After very-
little discussion Clause 9 was allowed to
stand.
Felt It Was   -Duty"
Clause 12, however, provoked more
argument. Alderman Hilditch was in
favor of the extra hour, not because
he particularly loved the liquor men,
but in the interests of the city. Prince
Rupert, he said would soon be a transcontinental city. It would need the
very finest hotels, and the granting of
the extra hour would forward this.
Alderman Morr ssey supported the extra
hour aa a duty to the electorate of Prince
Rupert. He felt that the liquor men's
long petition contained a mandate for
him.
Clayton a Cute Idea
Il was Alderman Clayton's bright
ideu that as daylight lasts so much
longer in Prince Rupert in summer it
is only logical that the bars shall remain open till it gets dark enough for
people to want to go to bed. Alderman
Clayton was inclined to give the liquor
men a little 'utitude.
Newton for Short Hou s
Not so Alderman Newton. He was
not in favor of gradually enlarging the
scope of lhe liquor men. All Canada
is in favor of sho t nin the bar-room
hours. Alderman New:on was with
all Canada. His idea was that the
question of hours should bc put up
to the people along with the City Hall
site selection.
"Dear me," remarked Aldermun Clayton. "My much esreemed colleugue,
Alderman Newton, seims :o have undergone a strange change of heart since I
suggested thut the Wuges Question should
be referred to a plebiscite. Rather a
rapid change of front is it not?"
iAlderman Newton opposed the plebiscite ideu on that occasion.)
"My Dear Alphonse!"
In reply to Aldermun Clayton, Alderman Newton arose smiling. "Aldermun Cluyton und I," he said, "have
without actually 'colleaguing,' been psid-
dling the same boat so far, and for thai
.eason I very highly respect thc opinion
| of my friend Alderman Clayton.   But
! now 1 think he is a little bil off."   And
| Alderman    Newton   launched    into    a
long explanation of his altered attitude
i to the idea of an appeal to the people
I as applied  to the City  Hall site, the
I liquor   trade   hours,   and   the   wages
question.     The   appeal   on   the   latter
issue   he   indicated   lhat   he   did   nol
support    because    he    considered    the
council had promised to give the wage
increase under certain conditions.    The
other matters were different.
"My Dear Gaston:"
After listening patiently.  Alderman
! Clayton replied briefly to the effect
that he still greatly admired Aldermun
Newton, and felt B brotherly regard
for him, but he did not think he had
a very good memory. His ideas seemed
to contradict themselves.
At this point Alderman Hilditch suggested the aBbption ��f the amended
Clause 12, detailing the hours carefully.
The  Clause  as  amended  carried.    Al-
iderman Smith and Alderman Newton
voting against it.
Very quickly thereafter the Clause
dealing with the bartenders' licence
fees was settled with. The bartenders'
licences will now cost $2.50 each half
year. The Amended Liqour Licence
By-law was then formally reported
passed through committee of the whole,
and went up for its third reading which
it passed. Twenty-four hours must
elapse before il comes into force.

from the grossest practices of heathenism to the better modern conditions.
