iRITISH UNIONISTS MAD
OVER LORDS VETO BE
Accused Mr. Asquith  of Taking Advantage of King George's Inexperience to Get Promises to Create Liberal Peers-House
Endorses Asquith's Action by Immense Majority

If UU.
Brought in King's name
The motion was introduced by
Mr. A. J. Balfour, thc leader of
the Opposition. He said the gravest of Opposition's charges against
thc Government was that Premier
Asquith had taken advantage of
the King's inexperience to bring
about an abuse of the royal
prerogative by securing guarantees
from his Majesty before the last
general election.
Asquith's Answer
Mr. Asquith easily disposed of
this charge by showing that the
ministers had pursued an entirely
proper and constitutional course.
The result of his answer was that
after the Premier's speech, the
debate on the Unionist side vir-
taully collapsed.

SIR ALAN AYLES WORTH TO
RETIRE FROM PARLIAMENT
Minister of Justice Makes Announcement to His Constituents-
Stayed Owing to Strong Wish of Sir Wilfrid Laurier--Great
Jurist Has Served Nation for Six Years
(Canadian Press Despatch)
Ottawa, Aug. 8.���Sir Alan Ayles-
worth after six years of public
service to Canada, first iis I'ust-
master General and for lhe past
five years as Minister of Justice,
is retiring from the Government
and has definitely notified the
North York Liberal Association
that he will not again be a candidate.
Sir Alan intimated to the Prime
Minister two years ago that  he
desired to resign his portfulio,
principally on the ground that his
deafness was a constant embarrassment to him in Parliament
anel at the Cabinet council meetings. He was dissuaded however
by Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his
colleagues and continued in office.
Receiilly, however, he decided definitely to resign and this afternoon
notified the Liberal executive of
North York to that effect.
Sir Alan stated that Mr. T. C.
Robinette, K. C, of North York
will probably be the candidate
in that consitiuency. Sir Wilfrid
Laurier has not yet accepted Sir
Alan's resignation and the latter
will probably hold office until
his successor is sworn in.
Hugh Guthrie, representative
for South Wellington in the Commons since 1000 is mentioned as
his probable successor.

THE MAN WITH THE KNIFE
There is a certain member of Parliament at Ottawa���we need
not harry him by bringing in his name���who in public poses as a
particular champion of public rights. Bui among the members of the
house he is known by the nickname of "the man with the knife."
No one fears him so much as his friends.    He knifes them all
in turn, the minute they Stand in the way of his ambition.   Like Brutus, after each political assassination hc tells the public:
"T'was not that I loved Caesar lis-
But only Rome the more."
But his friends watch him, and between themselves refer to him
as "the man with the knife."
There is a man in Prince Rupert who poses as a particular champion of public righ.a who is fast qualifying for the title of "the man
with tlu knife." One by one he knifes all his friends, the moment
they stand in thc way of his ambitions. Then he turns a dolorous
countenance to the public and explains that he is a great moral hero,
nuiking great sacrifices for the sake of the public. Nature has well
fitted h.m to assume the role of the dying martyr.
But his friends arc learning to watch him. They are beginning
to realise that the dying martyr is a pigmy with ambition���ard a
knife.
II
Of
The Adventure of The Red Circle
BY ARTHUR   CONAN   DOYLE
Copyright, 1011, by the Century Syndicat.
When he first came on the scene he announced himself as an
"independent)" That was until hi picked Mr. Fred Stork iis a winner
in the first munidpal election ill Prince Rupert. Then he turned in
to laud Mr. Stork to a point of absurdity, and to abuse Mr. William
Manson���Mr. Stork's opponent���in a manner that was both cruel
and extremely coarse.
That was in May 1010. A few weeks later tin man who boasts
that his newspaper has '"sacrificed its business interests for the purpost
of battling for tlu rights of tin masses" discovered that Mayor S.ork
would not give out city advertising patronage except by open compel ii ion.
So Mayor Stork and the members of his council were promptly
knifed.
List January the streams of absurd laudation ar.d coarse and
unwarranted abu-e wen* turned on again, but in different directions.
The despised Mr. Manson go. the laudation; the old council got the
abuse. And the moral hero who has always lieen ready to sacrifice
his business int. rests, etc., got his disputed account paid, in face of
the fact thiti the city's legal advisers declared that it was not collectable
in law.
After having saddled the dty with a council, which���to put
it mildly ���is nol so competent iis the previous council, our moral
hero discovered that he had got in wrong. He probably saw trouble
ahead at the next election for Mr. Manson and his friends. So with
a great profession of suiier-righteousness, he proceeded to knife his
colli agues in the council.
Mr. Manson himself was spared. Mr, Manson has in his gift
the advertising patronage of the Provincial Government.
The next to be knifed was Magistrate Carss. It is an open secret
that Mr. Carss along with other gentlemen in the Conservative party
Wiis looked on as a possible nominee   for Comox-Atlin.    So on  the
eve of the campaign Mr. Carss' political chances were assassinated
by the moral hero who heretofore had kept discreetly silent on the
subject of Mr. Carss.
Then after going through lhe solemn burlesque of announcing
that he had given way to "strong pressure" brought to bear upon
him lo stand as candidate for Comox-Ailin in opposition to the reciprocity agreement, this moral hero is CBUghl in the act of wilfully
mutilating press despatches so as to mislead his readers on the reciprocity question.
The facts are too damning to be explained away.    They show
this self-announced moral liiro up in a different light.
instead ol being a man of superior virtue, they show him to be
but a cheap trickster; Instead of a man of iron, just ii painted lath;
instead of a moral hero, just a pigmy with ambition���and a knife.
A man in priv
tent,    it is hli
right  to refer to it

"He told me, and my own heart
grew cold iis ice as I listened. My
poor Gennaro, in his wild and
fiery days, when all the world
see nud against him and his mind
was driven half mad by the injustices of Hie, had joined a
Neapolitan society, the Rid Circle,
which was allied to thc old Carbonari. The oaths and secrets
of this brotherhood were frightful;
but once within its rule no escape
was possible.   When he had fled to
America Gennaro thought that he-
had cast it all off for ever. What
was his horror one evening to
meet in the streets the very man
who had initiated him in Naples,
the giant Gorgiano, a man who
had earned the name of 'Death'
in the South of Italy, for he was
red io the elbow in murder! Hc
had come to New York lo avoid
ihe Italian police, and he had
already planted a branch of this
dreadful society in his new home.
All this Gennaro told me, and
showed me a summons which he-
had received that very elay, a
Red Circle drawn upon the head
of it, telling him that a lodge
would be held upon a certain dare,
and that his presence at it was
required and ordered.
"That was bad enough, but
worse was to come. I had noticed
for some time that when Gorgiano
came i<> us, as he constantly did,
in the evening, he spoke much to
me: and even when his words
were to my husband those terrible,
glaring, wild-beast eyes of his
were always turned upon me.
One- nigh I his secret came out.
I had awakened what he called
'love' within him���the love of a
brine���a savage. Gennaro had
not yet returned when he came.
He pushed his way in, siized mi
in his mighty arms, hugged me
in his bear's embrace, covered me
with kisses, and implored me to
come away wiih him. I was struggling and screaming when Gennaro
entered and attacked him. He-
struck Gennaro sensehss and fled
from the house which he was never
more to enter. It was a deadly
enemy that we made that night.
"A few days later came the
meeting. Gennaro returned from
it with a face which told nu that
something dreadful had occurred.
It was worse than we could have
imagined possible. The* funds ol
the society were raised by blackmailing rich Italians aril threatening them with violence should
they refuse the money. It semis
ihat Castalotte, our dear friend
ar.d benefactor, had been approached. He had refused to
yii Id to threats, and he had handed
the notices to the police. Il was
resolved now that such an example
should be made of him as would
prevent any other victim from
rebelling.    At  the meet ing il was
arranged thai he and his house
should be blown up by dynamite.
Tlu re Wiis a drawing of lots as
to who should carry out the deed.
Gennaro saw our enemy's cruel
face smiling iit him as he dipped
his hand in thc bag. No doubt
il had been pre-arranged in some
fashion, for it was the fatal disc
with the Red Circle upon it, the
mandate for murder, which lay
Upon his palm. He was to kill
lis best friend, or hc was to
expose himself and me to the
vengeance   of   his   comrades.     Il
was part of their fiendish system
to punish those whom they ./eared
or hated  by  injuring not onlj
their own persons, bill those whom
they loved, antl it was the knowledge of this which hung as a
terror over my pom' Gennaro s
head and drove him nearly craxy
with apprehension.
"All that night we sat together, our arms round each other,
each strengthening each for ilu
troubles that lay before us. The
very next evening had been fixed
for the attempt. By midday my
husband and I were on our wax-
to London, but not before we had
given our benefactor full winning
of his danger, and had also left
such information for the police
as would safeguard his life I.'i the
future.
"The rest, gentlemen, you know
for yourselves. We were sure
that our enemies would be behind
us like our own shadows. Gorgiano had his private reasons for
vengeance, but in i'ny case we
knew how ruthless, cunning, and
untiring he could be. Both Italy
and America arc full of stories
of his dreadful powers. If ever
they were exerted they would bellow. My darling made use of
die few clear days which our
snirt had given us in arranging
for a refuge for me in such a
fashion that no possible danger
could reach me. For his own
part, he wisheel to be free thai In
might communicate both with the
American and with the Italian
police. I do not myself know
where he lived, "r how. All thai
I learned was through lhe columns
of a newspaper. But once, as I
looked through my window, I
saw two Italii'i s watching the
house, ar.d I ur.di rstood thai in
some way Gorgiano had found oui
our retreat. Finally Gcnraro told
nn, through the paper, that he
would sigr;.l me from a certain
window, but when the signals
came they were nothing but warnings, which were suddenly interrupted. 11 is very clear to
me that he knew Gorgiano to be
.-lose upon him, ar.d that, thank
God, lu* w.'s ready for him when
he came. .A-d now, gentlemen,
I would :**k ymi whe,lur we have
anything to her from the l.;.w,
of whether .-.! y judge upon earth
would condemn my Gennaro for
what lu lu s done ?"
"Well, Mr. Gregson," said the
American looking across at the
official. "1 don'i know what
your Briiish point of viiw may be,
bui 1 g.uss thai i" New York
this lady's husband will receive a
pretty gu-cral vote of thanks."
"She will have to conn* with
me and see thc Chief," Gregson
answered. "If what she s..ys
is corroborated, I do not think
she or her husband has much to
fear. But what I Can't make head
or liiil of, Mr. Holmes, is how on
earth you got yourself mixed up
in the matter."
"Education, Gregson, educa-tton
Still seeking knowledge ill the old
university. Well, Watson, you
have one more specimen of the
tragic and grotesque to add to
your collection. By the way, il is
not eight o'clock, and a Wagner
night at Convent Garden! If we
hurry, we might be in time for the
second act.   "

Very High    Steamers on Skeena
Can't Get Through.
Owing to the exceptionally hot
weather up in the interior which
causes the snow on the mountains
to melt, the water In the Canyons
on ihe Skeena River is very high.
This morning it was three feet
four inches above zero and rising.
All the river steamer boats are
the other side of the canyons from
here, with the exception of lhc
Hazelton   and   until   the   water
lowers they will be unable to gci

BEING   ALONE
Why do Some Girls Prefer Solitude Sometimes
Toelay wc show- a pretty design
for ;i linen frock which may
be followed in colon or plain
white, as one's fancy dictates.
Either will be fashionable and
either will be pretty. If the lace
cannot be procured in shade desired it is a matter nf small expense to have it dyed t" match
ore's linen. King's blue works
up beautifully.
Note thc oild arrangement of
lace at top and bottom of panel.
Braid loops match thc linen and
tlu* small buttons fate bkek.
There is a strong tendency
among women of tin* present day
to be alone, and even to live alone.
There is much t<. be said against
such it feiling, but there is also a
great deal to be said fur it. One
must have a certain amount of
privacy, antl even isolation, in
one's life. To be with people
constantly, no matter how well
and intimately one may know
them, to never be alone, is to
subject oneself to a constant strain.
To relax one must be alone. I), li-
cate and nervous people will know
how exhausting ii is to be constantly in thc presence of others.
And probably most men and women who enjoy perfect health,
nevertheless have often experienced
something of tlu- sense of relief
at being alone expressed by an
at ride in a recent number of
Scribner's:
"I, too," says the writer, in
sympathetic reference to the lonely
heroine of a recent novel, "I too,
have learned lo walk alone. I,
too, have experienceel a sense of
freedom when the train has pulled
out of thc station hearing me
away from the friends I love.
What pleasure to walk at my
own pace through the stri-cts of
the town where I have to wail
for an hour or iwo; what joy to
get a cup of tea iit a perfectly
unreasonable hour, or to main
the extravagant littli purchases
which my prudent, well-wishing
friends would thoroughly disapprove of! Dear friei ds! Tin y are
so good io me.-" d I think of them
with such affection thc while that,
llceing from them, I hug my
freedom."
GREAT SINGER COMING
Baroness von Meyerinck May
Give a Concert Recital in
Prince Rupert.
The Baroness Anna von Meyerinck, one of ihe most cultured)
and charming of modern singers,
is on her way nortii from San
Francisco, according to a private
letter received in the Niws office.
The Baroness who has recently
completed a  triumphal  tour in
India and China, may slop off
iii Prince Rupert for two or three
song recitals. She is quite at
home in Interpreting the songs
f all the great European masters,
all languages coming alike to her.
To hear lur sing Schubert's "Le-
vi-nade," or Taulicrt's "Den
l-'iiulien" where she imitates tin
exultation of the runaway pigeons
laughing at the usikss attempts
to catch tlu tn is a nvelatiou of
what musical art allied lo genius
can do.
A warm welcome will probably
ic given her if she should visit
Prince Rupert.
To watch thc want ads is to
know when to buy lots.

lay curled up contentedly in the
cosy corner with hi- head pillowed
comfortably upon a parcel of
laundry'.     Thc   drowsy   vapours
of the wine bowl had over powered
him, but he was happy, oh, so
happyl Gently they raised him
and softly in the strong arms
of tin Law he wiis wafted rather
than carried to the neighbor! -
"Hotel Vickers."
Till dawn he slumpered on the
hard and narrow bed provided
for unwise convivialists by an
unsympatheticGovemme nt. Then
he arose and called for his laundry
parcel thiit he might ruin* himself
fitly t<> appear before ihe ornithological mouthpiece that i- to say,
the Beak. They brought him
the parcel. Deftly he opened
it and swiftly essayed i>. put
on the garment he iir*-t withdrew
from its neatly folded contents.
In the twinkling of an eye hi
found himself mazed daintily in
;i gossamer cloud of "frillies."
The length thereof was as ih.
breadth thereof. He couldn't tell
which was tin front. He lost
track of the raosl important part
i f the suit, and with an arm
through one pretty sleeve���we
think ii was a sleeve���and hit-
leg through another, he called
helplessly for aid all the time
like a shoeblack I..m in a lace-
store.
Summoning the whole staff.
Chief Vickers contrived successfully i" extricate the poor prison
cr. Then sternly he was asked
how he came by the laundry
pared, and to what fairy it belonged. But mi the filmy subject
Iii��� mind Wiis a blank. Honest,
though cmbarassed he paid his
fine like ii man, added the financial
it ill-, but left the real ones to
the can* of the Chief. If iy of
the ladies of ihe Comedy I inpany
in town has received from her
laundry any things she isn't the
shape for, Bhe will know when
in find her own.

Complaints were also dealt with

with the result that a portion at

and cabbage leaves was dumped
by mistake int.. tin* sea by a

Notice to Liberals
A general meeting of th<* Liberals of Prince Rupert
will Ih* In-Ill in the
McINTYRE HALL, 3rd AVENUE
"A Muinister's Son" as staged
by ihe Cleveland Musical Comedy
Co., in the Empress Theatre last
night was quite distinctly a success.
The comedy gave amusement to a
large audience. The musical numbers, and acting were of excellent
merit. Orchestral selections ai
intervals were rendered effectively
by the Prince Rupert Orchestra
augmented by the company's own
musicians and added greatly to
ilu'cnti-rlaii ment.
Briefly the slender plot of thc
comedy is that Douglas Catter-
mole, nephew of a wealthy and
itristrocratie govern mint official in
India, has few "redeeming vices."
He is no teetotaller, he doesn't
-hun the "Big D" now and then,
and he has quite a bunch of
debts. But he is studiously inclined, and his wealthy uncle
won't pay a penny for him till he
hears of some rollicking died the
boy has done to prove himself a
true Cattc rmole. The young man's
worst creditor is his tailor, Gibson,
who wants to get int.. society.
This man gets hold of a bill backed
by young Cattermole and US) -
ii to force an introduction to tin
wealthy uncle from India. Uncle
Cattermole is a holy terror and
Stamps round the whole plan.
He mistakes an unfortiinani clergyman. Rev. Robert Spaulding, for
his nephew and the poor pastor
has the dickens of a time of it.

who gets drunk, and the irate
uncle, the parson hardly knows
his head-piece from his goloshes
half the time. Then there i- a
charming lady interested in spiritualism who takes the clergyman
for a medium and would prolic
through him the secrets of the
Borderland. Mingle the whole
with ii couple of pretty girls with
whom Douglas Cattermole and
Harry Marsh, his chum, are in
love, and add any amount of
incidental songs, dance s, and lively
choruses merrily sung and rom|K-d
through by a clever company.
There you have "The Minister's
S.n."
Outstanding merit was shown
by Mr. Frank Snyder as the
insatiable tailor with ambitions.
His voice i*. powerful) and his
-.ing*-. especially "The Ideal ol
My Dreams" were received with
enthusiasm. Jack Westerman also,
iis "Rev. Kobt Spaulding" was
Inimitable. His comical mannerisms hit home capitally, and hi-
song "The Minister's S.n" delighted. Miss Drena Mack as
"Miss Edith Marsh" sang with
perfect confidence! and is wi accomplished leading woman. Shi
had several excellent songs. "Mikes
the Hoy." and "Teach Me to
Swim" went wiih splendid vigor.
but In the "Chantcclcr" Item both
costume and song seemed to suit
her to even bciicr effect, and the
house   gave   her   the   glad   hand
doubled.
Harry B. Cleveland as the Irate
uncle acted splendidly and the
chorus deserve full credit for real
efficiency, precision and enthusiastic support of ihe principals.
Those who know the exigencies
of the art  of stage dressing and
of costume  last   night  certainly
meant efficiency behind, as well
iis before the linn light.
