PUBLIC   QUESTIONS
Rousing Smoker Held in Mclntyre Hall
in Interest of William
Manson.
Hearty Kmloi'sntion  by. Large  llody
of Electors of His Candidature
For Major of City
At a very enthusiastic gathering
of the friends and supporters of William Manson for the office of mayor
of the city next year, which was held
ln Mclntyre Hall last Tuesday evening, the first work towards organizing the campaign was carried out.
M. M. Stephens presided, while O. H.
Nelson was elected chairman for the
meeting. The hall was filled by supporters. Speeches were delivered by
Mr.'Manson and by several others
who were called upon by the chairman in an impromptu manner. The
speakers included J. D. Scott, Thos.
Dunn, Dr. Clayton, Aid. Hilditch,
Harry Clarke, P. I, Palmer, S. M.
Newton and A. Seguoin.
On the conclusion of the speeches
the necessary business was transacted looking to tbe organization of
. the campaign. Chairmen of the different sub-committees for the various
sections were named with M. M.
Stephens as permanent chairman.
These consisted of A. Seguoin, Thos.
Duun, F. Lannie, W. Sibbald, and
Thamoa MaiUand. These with others
who may be added to the committee
. from time to time will constitute the
central  committee.
Mr. Manson in opening ieierred
to his platform which he had stood
by a few months before. The policy
then laid down be believed still
would have been the wisest course
for the city. In the matter of the
taxation of land values the present
council had followed the principle he
then enunciated. With respect to
'.he borrowing of a sufficient sum upon the credit of the whole city to be
expended cs deemed wisest in different parts of tiie city, he still believed
tbat would have been the proper
course. He attacked the system which
had been pursued of providing for
street work to the amount of about
$400,000 for which the credit of the
whole city was pledged, without tbe
sanction of the electors being obtained. It was not the spirit of the municipal act to do this, he felt. It was
stretching tite idea of the local improvement sytem far beyond what
had been the intention.
The speaker referred at some
length to the needs of tiie ctty in
the way of water, sewers, etc., which
would call for a considerable charge
being created upon the credit of the
city. The need of a very sound financial policy was necessary if the city
was to carry oul all that was required to be done. He favored extending
the life of tiie debentures for street
grading over a long period rather
than twenty years as had been done
by the council.
The speaker also made clear his
position with respect to civic labor.
Men who would become residents of
Prince Rupert should be given work
on the streets, and thus the city
would be built up and money circulated among the business men here.
Before closing Mr. Manson touched
upon the G. T. P. taxation question.
He assured the meeting that while
It was hoped that this matter would
be disposed of before the end of the
year, yet he was prepared to deal
with it at once if it were not so disposed of. He would approaeli it with
an open mind and upon reaching
what he felt would be a satisfactory
arrangement from the rtandpoint of
the city he would submit it to the
electorate to be passed upon by them.
The electorate would have to spy
whether It was agreeable to them.
They had It In their own hands to reject or to approve. As to Ihe proposition that the government should pass
an order-in-eoiineil disposing of the
question, Mr. Manson said this was
not to be thought of. The question
was one to be disposed of by the
people of Prince Rupert.
M. M. Stephens, the chairman, in
his criticism of the methods adopted
by the present council, referred to
the fact that they had on Fifth street
the example of their tearing up the
plank way at one end before It was
finished at the other. This was surely a waste of money.
Thomas Dunn In vigorous manner
criticised the council. He referred
to the prophesy Immediately after
election that Prince Rupert's first
c..ecil  would be its best one.    He
had fondly expected that himself, but
he had been disappointed sadly. It
would go down as the worse council
the city had had.
Mr. Dunn gave attention to the excessive cost of civic administration
here and then launched into the system pursued in street work. This
was heralded as a "white man's country," yet they had conditions quite
as bad as if Chinamen or Japs were
employed on the streets. He vigorously assailed the system pursued
and intimated that it was the duty of
the business men to demand a
change.
Aid. Hildltch gave attention to
some of the weak points of the administration when he took issue with
tiie council. He also defended the
council in some directions.
H. H. Clarke, as a business man,
felt that they should suport Mr. Man-
son this year.
S. M. Newton spoke to some
length.
A Seguoin pledged his support to
Mr. Manson, who was a man of his
word, and whose experience in public matters made hhn a safe one to
put at the head of the city affairs.
The meeting closed with cheers for
Mr. Manson and tiie singing of God
Save the King.

RETURNS FROM TRIP
(■. to. lierr Has Arrived Home From
A isit in  Itossbuill
G. "to, Kerr, of the P. Burns 'Company [if this city, has returned from
a trip which took him as tar as Spokane. He spent some time in Rossland and made calls at other interior
points.
Mt. Kerr had many inquiries about
Prince Rupert. He found a aeep interest taken in it, but had to contradict many erroneous ideas concerning Ihe climate. Another point
that seemed to be well known was
that there was disagreement between
the city and the G. T. P. It was no
doubt affecting the standing of the
city and was a drawback to its pro
grass.
WINTER ON SKF.ENA
River is Freezing Over nnd Snow Has
Fallen
The winter seems to have set in
in earnest up the Skeena River. W.
C.C. Mehan, general superintendent,
has just returned from a trip taken
to tiie end of the rails and reports
that the river Is practically frozen
across in its upper portions. There
is about four or six inches of snow
on Ihe ground, and when his train
left it was snowing steadily so that
the- fall will be quite heavy now, he
anticipates.
The sitting in of .winter conditions
has, he says, interferred witli tiie
work of ballasting so that he has little hopes of doing much more along
that line before spring.
The ordinary work is making very
steady progress, he says.
 o	
CHINESE LAUNDRIES
Action Will be Taken by City Council to Control These
The question of Chinese laundries
being allowed to locate indiscriminately in various parts of the city
came before the council last evening
on a report made upon a petition the
week before against allowing such a
laundry to open near the corner of
McBride street and Third avenue.
The medical health officer reported that while no nuisance had as yet
been created, he could not under the
bylaw recommend against It.
He put in a report however, on
the.same subject In which be recommended that regulations should be
enforced by which permits should be
obtained by any laundry before it
was allowed to open.
Aid. Hilditch speaking on tile subject said he had asked that a bylaw
be prepared covering the question of
these laundries. They should not be
located al) over the city.
 o	
SERIOIS CONDITION
FIX NEW SECTIONS
City Council Will Again Call for Tenders for Street
Work.
Retaining Walla  Will   be  Put in by
the Day Labor System This
Time
New tenders are to be asked for
work in section one under the local
Improvement plan. This is to overcome the diiffculty met with a short
time ago when through a technical
question as to the tenders on the retaining walls it was decided not to
award the tenders. The engineer has
made a new subdivision, making 12
stations which will be tendered upon.
The tenders will close December
19.
The report 'of the engineer was in
favor of keeping the detaining wall
separate as recommended by Alii.
Smith when the othrr tenders were
received and who favored letting the
contracts without tite retaining wall
part of it.
Aid. Lynch favored doing the retaining walls separate.
Aid. Hilditch also agreed with this.
Aid. Mobley iioved that the retaining walls where found necessary
should lie put in by day laber.
The .motion carried.

WHAT IS A BRAINSTORM?
A writer in Tuesday's Journal says it is a "brainstorm" which
afflicts those who think business men would be affected adversely
by the passing of the "Scott Act"—Although that has been the invariable result elsewhere—a one-sided definition—a begging of the
question.
A BRAINSTORM is a cervical typhoon, producing depression
and Intense vibration. It causes the victim to harbor hallucinations
with respect to things in general and the "SCOTT ACT" in particular
For instance it leads a man to support a measure which says
"YOU SHALL NOT buy a drink in Prince Rupert, but you may—if
you have the money—buy a case of whiskey on the outside and
bring it in."
"YOU SHALL NOT drink in a bar because drink is a curse-
but we will help you to convert your home into a saloon."
"YOU SHALL NOT drink alcohol because it is poison in spite of
the fact that the most eminent British physicians voluntarily signed
a manifesto .to the contrary."
A BRAINSTORM causes some men to think that all the world
is crazy besides themselves, and that the people of Prince Rupert are
crazy enough to believe them.

There was a very large attendance
at the public meeting held in Mclntyre Hall last evening under the
auspices of the Citizens' League. The
meeting was addressed by William
Blakemore, of Victoria, editor of the
Week, who showed a very wide
knowledge of his subject, dealing
with it from many different standpoints. The meeting was presided
over by Thomas Dunn, who in bis
opening address expressed his views
on the subject. He pointed to the
unfairness in connection witli the
vote, inasmuch as the lists used
would permit probably 300 people to
say that the Scott Act should be In
force  here.
Mr. Blakemore dealt with some of
the mosl flagant weaknesses of the
act, showing it was impossible to effectually enforce it. It was unfair,
he pointed out, inasmuch as il reversed the rules of evidence everywhere
else in force under the British flag.
It made the accused prove his innocence. It also forced a wife to give
evidence against  her husband.
He also argued that it was fraudulent inasmuch as it purported to be a
temperance act which would reduce
the consumption of liquor and yet
the opposite was the effect of it.
Referring to Dr. Silencer, Mr.
Blakemore said he did not wish to
say anything harsh of that gentleman. Dr. Silencer, however, had been-
guilty of political dlshoneBty, He did
not wisii to be misunderstood in that
and lie did not say anything against
Dr. Spencer in his private life. What
he meant in this respect was that Dr.
Spencer had been guilty of what, had
it been done in private life, he would
have been deemed dishonest.
In explanation of this he pointed
out that Dr. Spencer during the last
election campaign had thanked Premier McBride for fhe courtesy he had
shown in allowing a plebiscite to be
taken on (lie question of local option.
He had also stated that if the vote
did not go in favor of local option
the temperance people themselves
were to blame. Yet Dr. Spencer now
complained that they did not get a
fair chance.
Dr. Siienecr had also complimented
the attorney general on the u«w liquor act. In tin's vote, said Mr.
Blakemore. there wns more politics
on the part, of some than they were
willing to admit. lie argued flint
they should give the present liquor
act a fair chance. They could make
their bylaws conform to if, and could
reduce the objections to liquor far
more effectively than by the Scott
Act.
Witli Dr. Spencer he lamented that
women had no vote on this question.
lie believed the women would not
lie carried away by such sophistries
as some men wen-.
The meeting closed with the singing of God Save the King.
This evening Mr. Blakemore will
address another meeting to be presided over by A. Carss.

THE SPORTING WORLD
HACKENSCHMIDT AS WRESTLER
George Hackenschmidt, popularly
known as the Russian Lion, has been
conducting his training ln th gymnasium of one of the police stations
of Chicago, and has had as his training partners some of the toughest
and beat known of the American
grapplers.
No description better fits Hackenschmidt than the statement that he
is an enlarged edition of Fred Beell.
Where Beell weighs about 168
pounds, the weight of Hackenschmidt
is around 228 pounds. Every move
the big foreigner makes is a counterpart of that of the little American
grappler, whom Hackenschmidt designates as the fastest man in the
world. Hack's development Is almost identical with eBell's and there
is even a facial resemblance.
Not only must these truths impress themselves on the grappling
fans of America, but other points
of similarity will become known. For
example, Hackenschmidt, like Beell,
evolves holds. This is always what
distinguishes the superior grappler.
These locks would, perhaps, be of little value to other men, but they are
suited to the build, the development
and the manner of thought of those
who invemt them.
Considering Hack's size, his speed
is something to marvel at. He is aggressive and has that same brand of
tenacity that made Evan Lewis famous In his day. The long supple
muscles of the foreign star, the
course of his movements all tell of
his wonderfu\ condition. George
Hackenschmidt is very modest, and
Is not given to boasting of liis many
years of splendid mat success. He
doesn't attempt V> bedim part of
either one to critize the other. There
Is no other erason  to speculate on
the victory of Frank Gotch over him,
but he does explain that ln the last
two years he has learned much more
of America and this country ways.
There is a lot in this, considering
that a large part of his professional
career has been spent ln the music
halls of London. He has been dealing with English audiences, and has
not been acquained with American
manners and American requirements.
With the retirement of Frank
Gotch, it is difficult to see where an
opponent is to be found for Hackenschmidt, who can give him a hard
contest. Relative to both Gotch and
Hackenschmidt there seems to be no
disposition on what the outcome of
another match would be. It Is well
known that Frank Gotch has wanted
to retire for more than two years.
Frank has grown weary of the padded circle and he has wisely settled
down to enjoy the fruits of his long
and wonderfully successful career on
the mat.
On the other hand, Hackenschmidt
is nomadic. He likes the business of
appearing In public, and he enjoys
travel. There is no question at all
that Jack Curley will meet with the
largest measure of success as manager of the foreigner, because the
fans of the United States will find
more enjoyment in seeing Hackenschmidt in exhibition matches than
they ordinarily would in watching
championship events. After seeing
Hack on the mat, one Is almost
forced to revert to comparisons and
admit that Frank Gotch, George
Hackenschmidt and Fred Beell represent the three most interesting
types of the development of the
wrestler that the world is ever apt
to see in a single generation. In each
Instance there are solidity, speed, endurance and individuality.
Hackenschmidt starts on his tour
through the east beginning next week
in Buffalo and for nearly five months
he will fill engagements throughout
the United States.
GOLF TOURNAMENT
The big winter golf tournament
for the Pacific Northwest players will
be held on the links at Del Monte,
California, commencing on Saturday,
February 11, and running through
to February 18, inclusive. This announcement was received here Saturday night. San Francisco, Seattle,
Portland, Victoria, Vancouver, Tacoma, Spokane and Salt Lake City will
be represented.
EASTERN  CHAMPIONS
The Varsity rugby team of Toronto trimmed the Hamilton Tigers by
the score of 16 points to 7 for the
Canadian  championship.
From the start the wearers of the
Royal Purple had it over the Bengals
and at half time the score stood 11 to
nil in their favor.
It was a personal triumph f,or
Coach Harry Griffith, who, by the
way, Is a Hamilton man. Varsity
were at it from the trop of the hat,
and as they had done with Ottawa a
year ago they put the Tigers over the
ropes at ine start. From then to
half time they had the best of the
play. Just after the opening of the
second half the Tigers came again
with a rush, and for a time looked
dangerous. It lasted through the
third quarter, which was more than
was expected, but after that till toward the close it was a procession. The
vaunted Tigers' line did do things for
a time, but Varsity halves were so
fast and Foulds so quick In his service, that as a result there was time
to spare.
Gait, Maynard and Dixon put up a
wonderful line of football, and al]
the fumbles were behind the Tigers'
line. Every man was playing the
game for all that was in him. Simpson, for the Tigers, did wonderful
service, but fumbled at times, while
Moore and Kidsmith were two sure
kickers.
CHANGES IN  NAVY
Channel, Home and Atlantic Fleets Nay
be Brought Under One
Command.
The Neptune Will Carry the Flag of
New Commander, Sir Francis
Bridgeman
Important changes in the British
navy are under consideration at the
admiralty. According to press forecasts, in future there will be only one
commander-in-chief for all the naval
forces in the English channel, the
North sea and the Atlantic; and
while officers of junior rank will retain the control of divisions and
squadrons, as the case may be, the
combined training will be carried out
under the orders of the admlral-in-
chlef.
When tiie present home fleet was
in process of formation, embodying
an entirely new manning policy,
there were three officers in home
waters with the rank of commander-
in-chief, namely, the senior officers
of the Channel, Home and Atlantic
fleets. In the spring of last year the
Channel fleet ceased to exist, and its
ships were passed into the home fleet
forming its second division, while
the Atlantic fleet retained its former status, with an independent commander-in-chief.
Within the next few months these
two commander-in-chiefs will relinquish their appointments at the end
of the usual term. Vice- Admiral
Prince Louis of Battenberg will complete his period with the Atlantic
fleet before the end of the year, and
Admiral Sir William May, the senior
officer of the home fleet, will haul
down his flag In the Drendnought In
March. The former officer will be
succeeded by Rear-Admlral Sir John
Jelicoe, the present Third Sea Lord
and controlelr of the navy, who, until
he gets his step in promotion, will
hold substantive rank. He is now
tenth on the list of rear-admirals.
His title will be "Vice-Admiral commanding the Atlantic fleet," and thus
there will be left only one officer in
home waters with the title of commander-in-chief.
When Sir William May comes
ashore, the vacancy will be filled by
Sir Francis Bridgeman, who, since
March, 1909, has been second sea
lord, and prior to that was in command of the home fleet during the
early stages of Its development. With
the change In the command of the
Home and Atlantic fleets, there will
consequently be only one commander-in-chief in the British seas. The
Atlantic fleet will contlneu, as in the
past, to act as a "pivot" force, ready
to co-operate, as circumstances dictate, either with the home fleet or
the Mediterranean fleet.
When Sir Francis Bridgeman succeeds to the supreme control of the
whole of the ships of the home fleet,
now numbering nearly 400 pennants,
he will hoist his flag on the new
Dreadnought battleship Neptune.
This will be the first vessel to join

FEDERAL POWERS
Australian  Statesman Expresses tlta
X lews
Speaking at a banquet at Sydney,
N.S.W., the Hon. A. Fisher described
liis idea of the position the federal
parliament should occupy in the governance of Australia and the idea
ernanve of Australia and the ideal
relations which should exist between
it and the state legislatures. He was
of opinion, he said, and he spoke also
for his party, that until the national
parliament had power to protect
every worker, man and woman,
either as regards the eight, hour principle or any other matter, the Australian nation would not rise to that
height to which it ought to attain.
He did not desire in any way to belittle the state legislatures. He had
no other aim and object than this:
To see vested ln the national parliament powers equal to those possessed
by the state legislatures, bo that the
central parliament might, if it deemed fit, pass such legislation as would
secure something like uniformity of
operation of laws, which would enable the worker to gain the same
privilege of appealing to the highest
tribunal in the land as that man who
was aggrieved In his monetary affairs had. That was a fair thing.
The government was not only In
earnest in the matter of the federal
capital, but had given evidence of
their earnestness and determination.
There would be no unnecessary delay. There had been no delay other
than was necessary for the bst interests of the people. Her In Australia the powers of the people were
being extended, and surely they could
look forward to the time when the
whole people speaking the English
language would be bound together
with one common object, and that
the peace of the world and protection and promotion of everything
that helped forward tne cause of
progress and of humanity generally.
CANADA'S FUTURE
Supplies for the  U.S.  Must Soon bo
Supplemented From This Country
The November Issue of the Census
and Statistics Monthly, which deals
principally with agricultural conditions in Canada, contains the following official statement: A correspondent of the London Economist at Winnipeg expresse the opinion that the
United States, with a product of
600,000,000 bushels of wheat this
year, comes near the limit of domestic consumption for that country, and
that within tbe next fifteen years at
the outside the United States will
have become dependent upon Canada for supplies of beef and bread.
In the presence of this situation the
writer has the comforting assurance
that in the Canadian west about 200,-
000,000 acres of wheat land, with
a capacity of 3,000,000,000 bushels,
shill await the plough, and that 250,-
000,000 acres more are suitable for
cattle raising, besides a vast acreage
classed as of doubtful value or as
belonging to the subarctic areas. Little wonder, then, that ln his pudg-
ment the rush of settlers into Canada
will soon surpass all records. But
the correspondents of newspapers
three thousand miles away ought to
be sober men Wheat will be grown
in the United States far beyond the
limit of 600,000,000 bushels if there
is call for It; 3,000,000,000 bushels
is not a riotous estimate for that
country If the world wants so much
and offers a paying price for it, and
the present supply of beef may also
be readily Increased within four or
five years. There is, however, no
doubt that Canada will excel in
wheat-growing in quality and product, and that for years to come she
will occupy the first position, al-
thought not so prominently as to be
without a rival. We are not distressed by the old bogey of a desert
region north of the great lakes,
separating the east from the west.
The 20,000,000 acres of Ontario
traversed by the Grand Trunk Pacific, with its rich land and forest minerals, will easily sustain a poulatlon
of four or five millions, and all the
way across the continent from British Columbia to Nova Scotia there
are the elements for an abiding industry. Of the three transcontinental
railways now completed or approaching completion from sea to sea the
Canadian Pacific Is the one with the
least non-productive areas to draw
upon for business traffic, yet there is
no other long stretch of railway line
in America with greater proportional
earning power or with a more hopeful outlook for the employment of
capital.

III IT G.T.P. TAXATION
A few days ago The .Journal took
occasion to announce that in the
coming municipal campaign a certain
element in the city would do all in
its power to make the G.'I'.P. taxation question the paramount one. As
time goes on it is made more clearly
evident that heroic methods are to
be employed by that element to divert attention from all other issues
in un effort to play the part of the
determined opponents of everything
that looks like the G.T.P.
The Optimist, which in spite or Its
denials that it represents the views
of any element in the city council,
but which is nevertheless by a
strange co-incidence, never far In the
expression of views from those held
by the coterie of the council which
holds something less than a quarter
of the stock in the paper, has now in
desperation charged a diabolical plot
hatched up in which Premier McBride and Mr. Manson are concerned,
to effect a settlement.
We know nothing of such a plot,
and we do not believe there is any
truth in it. Premier McBride during
his visit here intimated that he
would not interfere with the matter.
He offered advice to the council, but
only as advice. William Manson,
speaking at the smoker given the
other evening made a declaration on
the subject which does not indicate
that he has any preconcerned plan
of settlement which he is going to
try to carry through over the heads
of the people. He has pledged himself to refer any settlement he may
reach to the electors to be passed upon, which is certainly a safe proposition for the citizens. They have the
deciding. The words of Mr. Manson
at that smoker explain his position
very clearly.    They were:—
"The question of the dispute between the G.T.P. and the city is one
on which, perhaps, you will expect
me as a candidate for mayor to have
something to say. The question at
the present time is the subject of
negotiations between the city and the
company and it is to be hoped it will
be settled before the end of the present year.
"If, however, it should remain unsettled, and I should be elected to
the office of mayor and have to take
part in dealing with this question, 1
am prepared to negotiate with tha
company and endeavor to arrive at a
satisfactory settlement and when an
agreement has been reached that 1
consider a proper one from the
standpoint of the city, I will submit
the matter for the approval of the
electors before any settlement is
formally agreed upon. This is the
only course that could be pursued.
I desire to approach the whole subject with an open mind. The ap*
proval of the people is necessary before anything will be binding upon
the city.
"It had been suggested that an
order-in-council might be secured
from the Government. The Government has nothing more to do with
this than any one of you individual-
ly." • |
Now dealing with the inflamatory
language of the Optimist. It is only
a few days ago since it upbraided the
Journal for not throwing Itself
heartily into the evolving of a scheme
of settlement between the city and
the G.T.P. Now how is it assisting
a settlement?
The solicitor of the G.T.I'., D'Arcy
Tate, is on his way to Prince Rupert
on the invitation of the city council
in effeel a settlement. Surely under
such circumstances it could be expected that all parties to the negotiations to be conducted would refrain
from any attempl to inflame public
opinion, it would have been expected
that that quarter interest in ihe Optimist thai is charged with tiie administration of city affairs would
have used its best efforts to have
dissuaded such an outburst at this
particular lime. That Ihe turn should
be taken that has been followed
fores one to the belief that while
Mr Tite may have been invited here
on the pretence of affecting a s it lenient, there is to be no sueli chance
taken as that a settlement snail be
effected. That would inn suit ;lie
purposes of the municipal campaign,
Fresh fuel is needed to instil ill will
to Hie G.T.I', and on Ihe strength nf
a false prejudice men are to be elected   who  would   otherwise   be   left   at
home. It looks as though farce
negotiations for campaign purposes
have been arranged.
The citizens of Prince Rupert are
not going to be hoodwinked by any
such clap-trap as is being attempted.
Tbe Optimist says that It is because Mr. Manson will take the first
opportunity to effect a settlement of
'be G.T.P. matter that he is running. We must agree that there is a
good deal of truth in that. Mr. Man-
son is running because citizens of
Prince Rupert representing every
sliade of politics and every walk of
life, practically insisted that he
should run. Among those who thus
forced him out were many men with
interests here who demand that some
one shall take hold of that G.T.P.
taxation question in a business-like
way and give them, tiie citizens of
Prince Rupert, a chance to say what
they will do.
They have confidence enough in
the integrity of Mr. Manson to know
that he will negotiate along sane
lines. They have confidence enough
in him to know that he will not make
inflamatory speeches or endorse inflamatory language used against the
G.T.P., and then take early opportunity to establish a reputation for
friendliness  to  the  G.T.P.
 o	
A PROTECTED PORT
The words of Sir Wilfrid Laurier
day when defending his naval policy
in the House of Commons the other
against the Nationalist wing in Quebec seems to indicate that he has in
view the making of this port as
strong in point of defensive equipment as is Esquimalt. in the south.
It Is difficult to understand how any
other policy could be expected from
any Canadian government. Prince
Rupert must have an ample dry dock
or floating.dock capable of han'dling
large battleships. It must have the
land fortifications to insure the protection of these repair works in time
of need.
On the line of the shortest All-
Red route, this port must occupy a
strategic position among the British
outposts and will have an Imperial
importance all its own.
Speaking in the House a few days
ago, Sir Wilfrid clearly evidenced
that this was his conception of affairs when he said:
"We are building a railway across
the continent to the northern waters
of the Pacific at Prince Rupert, 600
miles at least from the fortifications
at  Esquimalt.
"Will anyone say that we are to
leave these distant portions of our
country absolutely unprotected? No,
the common sense of the people will
come to the conclusion that these distant parts of our country where so
much wealth is being developed must
be protected either by fortifications
or ships."
Again in a letter to La Presse, the
Premier says: —
"In 1852 Canada had only the Gulf
to defend; today we have all the
.Maritime Provinces, Halifax, St.
John, Cape Breton, Prince Edward
Island and all the Pacific coast, the
Straits of San Juan, Vancouver, Victoria, Esquimalt, Prince Rupert, the
coasts of the Yukon, etc.
"Let us not forget that there are
constant dangers on the Pacific Coast
where the fisheries, the forests and
the mines represent billions, which
require defence. It is not when a
catastrophe has happened that you
should be prepared to remedy it. The
duty of statesmen is to be able to see
how to make catastrophes impossible.
What would become of our commence at the moment when Canada
is preparing to offer the shortest
route between Europe and Asia by
which precious merchandise can be
exchanged between the two continents by land and sea, if by a false
economy we should lose hundreds of
millions of business?"
The  supporters  of  the  Soott  Act
have opened permanent headquarters
on Third avenue between Fiftli street
and Fulton street.
J. Chalmers; formerly of the Toronto Globe staff, and more recently
ol' tiie Vancouver World, has arrived
in the city. He has taken a position
mi the reportorial staff of tiie Optimist.
H. F. McRae has slarted building
operations on what will be occupied
by him as an office and which will
have rooms to rent above it. The
building is to be located on Second
avenue, next door to the Rand block.

Lessons From
Other Lands
Anything appearing in this
column under the above head
is published by the Press
Committee of the opponents
of the Scott Act and is not intended as representing the
views of this paper.
In Mississippi
Some two years ago the legislature
of Mississippi passed prohibition laws
There was at the time evidence that
the people of the South and of some
sections of the West had come to the
conclusion that all that was necessary to curtail or destroy the liquor
traffic was to pass laws making the
sale of Intoxicants punishable by law.
True, man ythousands of people ln
both the Southern and Northern sections refused to be misled by such
folly and voted against legislators
who were committed to drastic legislation on the liquor question. Many
of these opponents of prohibition
were themselves total abstainers, but
in Mississippi all classes were willing
to give the new law a fair chance. As
the months went by, the sentiment
concerning prohibition changed in
many Southern and Western communities, but the light for prohibition does not seme to have been relaxed and Missouri Is to vote on the
question of prohibiting the sale of
liquors on Tuesday next. Prohibition
in Mississippi has not been a success and It is estimated htat the loss
to the state, municipalities, towns
and countries is about ?5,000,000 a
year, and the commerce and trade of
the state has shrunken about $f!0,-
000,000. Large quantities of intoxicants are shipped into the strte from
Cincinnati, Chicago, Louisville, New
Orleans and other places. Besides
this in most places in the state liquors can be procured without difficulty. In some places though such
as VIcksburg, the defiance of the law
is more open than ln other places.
Cities and towns in which liquor can
be more readily obtained seem to
be doing a greater general business
than their neighbors. This may not
be very pleasant to the prohibitionists, but there semes to be no way
\c dispute the facts. How long the
people of Mississippi will be satisfied
tu have this farce continue it is difficult to say, but that eventually they
will change from a prohibition stand
to one dealing with the liquor question In a wiser manner there can be
little doubt.
Experience of States
Twenty-one Stales of the American
Union have at various times adopted
prohibition. Thirteen have found it
so unsatisfactory that they have repealed the law and gone back to
other remedies. This leaves prohibition now in force in eight States.
Maine which has had it for "ill years,
is using the Initiative to gel rid of
it. In Oklahoma and Tennessee
there is a strong agitation to resubmit the question. This leaves only
two States, Kansas and low... in
which the measure has been enforced
to any considerable extent. The reason is that they are agricultural
States with very few large cities and
they approximate the condition of
rural communities under local option. Even in Kansas there has been
great complaint about the methods
of enforcing the law and the enormous expense It enta'ls nuca the
counties. And now Kansas has voted
for resubmission <n order t > reject
the prohibition law. The records of
the United States internal revenues
are absolutely reliable, and they
show that the licenses issued by the
Federal .government have Increased
in the States that have adopted prohibition. They increased 1364 in
Georgia the first year nnd from 763
to 072 in Memphis Ihe first two
years after prohibition was adopted.
How it Winks in  Kansas
Although Kansas is a prohibition |
state, in most localities there it is
the simplest of matters to Becure
what passes for liquor, and 796 of
the 852 prisoners received at the
slate penitentiary during the last two
(prohibition) years are there partially because of the use of liquor This
is shown by the biennial report of
the directors and warden of Ihe state
penitentiary filed with Governor
Stubbs. Only S21 of the convicts received in the last two years would
make any report on the use of liquor;
of this number 509 stated that liquor
had contributed to their downfall,
and 277 stated that, their downfall
could lie traced directly io liquor.
Women, liquor and (rambling were
listed more frequeni than anything
else. Both liquor and gambling are
now under law, but as yet no one of
the'reformers has proposed the pro
hibition of women'.
Alcoholic Statistics
The general superintendent of the
Anti-Saloon League (the chief prohibition organiaztion of the United
States, asserts in his recent annual
report that 41,000,000 of the people
in the United States are now living
in prohibition territory. With the
exception of Maine and Kansas,
which have a population of less than
two and a half millions, practically
all alleged "prohibition territory"
has been gained during the past ten
years. In this period the consumption of alcholic beverages has increased about twenty-five per cent
faster than the total poulation! In
the light of these facts, it is pertinent
to ask, who, what and where does
prohibition prohibit, and by what
practical results can prohibition be
justified? It is significant to note
that in 1900 there were 189,089 "retail liquor dealers" who paid the special tax of $25 to the federal government. In 1910 their number was
202,687, an increase of 13,598, or
7.2 per cent. Is this ln spite or because of "prohibition"?
 —o	
GOTCH'S RETURN
Frank Gotch Ib to re-enter the
wrestling arena. The champion
Iowan in a short interview admitted
that he would undoubtedly get into
the game again as Boon as the foreign
wrestlers had shown themselves dangerous competitors for the title
which lie now holds.
Gotch had hoped that some American wrestler would develop, who
would be capable of defending the
title successfully against Hackenschmidt, Zybysko, Mahmout and the
remainder of the! nvaders, but up to
this time no American has shown sufficient form to be considered in a
c'ass with these powerful foreigners.
The Russian Lion, apaprently better
than ever, is tramping up and down
the country and it seems certain at
this time, that it is up to Gotch to
beat him, if the Lion is to be denied
the world's title.
The Iowan is not anxious to wrestle
again, in fact, would prefer to stay
out of the ring, but he will not pass
up a match with the Lion If it comes
to a showdown. He has passed the
summer on his farm and has worked
hard, for apparently he is In very
good condition at the present time.
He doesn't look as if he had gone
back a bit and will enter the ring
in the spring just as good as he ever
was in his life.
Frank Gotch has just passed his
23rd birthday and probably weighs
212 pounds with his clother on. He
is big and strong, but not fat and
looks as good as he ever did in his
life. He has lived a moderate life,
has always kept himself in fair condition, and is ready at any time to
give the best that Is in him. It is certain that unless Yussif Mahmout, the
Turk, stops Hackenschmidt, Frank
Gotch, will take a try at him and that
the match will be wrestled In Chicago
some time next spring. Gotch wil;
have a few preliminary matches and
will not overlook any of the necessary training work.

pilot house the windows are of plate
glass, and in the aft cabin 12-lnch
brass polished ports have been placed
thus furnishing an abundance of
light.

CANADIAN   IDEALS
J. Norton Griffiths Speaks of Conditions
as He Found Them in This
Country.
He  Warns the Old Land  With  Respect to the Attitude Towards
the  New World
The following remarks concerning
Canada were made by Mr. J. Norton
Griffiths, M.P., in a speech at Wednesbury,  England,  last  month.    Mr.
Norton Griffiths is head of the Norton  Griffiths  &  Company,   Ltd.,   of
Canada, who are opening offices in
Vancouver   as  engineers  and   public
works contractors, and has acquired
lands in northern British  Columbia.
"You   will   find   in   Canada     that
every  man  who is willing  to   work
will get work, and get wages which
enable  him  to  live up  to  a   higher
standard of comfort than is the case
with the workers at home.     One of
the main reasons for this is that the
government protect their labor    by
protecting    their    industries.    Their
principle is anadians first, the mother country next, and then the others
whihc we have to deal with with advantage  to  ourselves.    If we  as  a
people allow things to drift, as they
have been drifting—if we allow the
government to continue with a policy
which  is ruinous to imperial  sentiment and unity, we shall be left the
sentiment  only  and  without  any  01
the advantages which by right should
accrue to us.    We have but a short
time to make up our minds. Canada
is getting tired of waiting, and waiting in vain, and she cannot be expected to throttle her progress any
longer.       During  tills  month   fresh
negotiations  will  be afoot  between
the U.S.A. and Canada, while in tho
near future the same step is contemplated   with   Germany  and   Belgum.
At present Canada has a population
of seven millions. It is estimated that
in  twenty years it will have  twenty
millions—now where are they coming from? If the maority come from
foreign  countries and America, how
can we expect such an influx of alien
blood  to carry a sentiment  for  the
British flag unless there is some good
practical reason for that sentiment.
Where is the natural place for the
emigrat to come in from?    The seriousness, also, of the position to us la
that each new bargain which Canada
makes with other countries must be
to our detriment, must cut Into us,
and  must  minimise  our  chances   of
obtaining work  in  this  country  for
goods which  we want  to  make and
export to Canada. And who is forcing
Canada to do this?    Why, the people
in this country who allow a government  to remain  In  power  who  are
wrecking the very future of our empire and our imperial interests."
During his trip to Canada Mr. Norton Griffiths said he had the pleasure
of conferring with many of the leading men of Canada. He had travelled
with Hie Hon. Premier Richard McBride, as liis guest, and had attended
political meetings and spoken at
them, and the great satisfaction to
him was the fact that both sides of
politics In that country had but one
aim—and that was the consolidation
of the empire, development of trade
with the empire, and a preferential
right to those residing within the
empire for the varrying on of that
trade. All were imperialists, all desired imperial unity, and all those he
met had expressed their deep concern that the people of England were
taking such a long time in realizing
their position.

CRIPPEN'S CAPTOR
of several clover captures which he
had made.
It was in connection with the series of "Jack the Ripper" murders
that Mr. Dew first gained important
promotion. The intricate investigations connected with the Druce case
two or three years ago wore also
largely carried out by the inspector,
who was responsible for the arrest
for perjury of Miss kobinson after
that ingenious lady had offered $500
reward for a diary which she said
had been stolen, and which was supposed to be of great value in establishing the claimant's case The woman subsequently was convicted. To
execute his difficult task Mr. Dew
had adopted many disguises including those of a butcher, a matchseller,
a pedlar and a pilot—the uniform of
which he wore when he went on
board the Montrose in the St. Lawrence to arrest Crippen. The awkward corners in which he has found
himself have been many.
Although Mr. Dew will be entitled
to a handsome pension, he states
that he will act as a private detective, as he considers himself much
too young to cease active work. There
are indications that his name will be
much mentioned when parliament
meets, as several M.P.'s intend to ask
questions regarding the escape of
Crippen to Canada.

R.L.
Borden's Stand on British Columbia's Better Terms
Demands.
He is Agreeable to a Course in Line
With Premier McBride's
Request
Very early ln the proceedings at
Ottawa this session the question of
"Better Terms" for British Columbia
has come up. R. L. Borden In his
earliest speech in the House of Commons declared with emphasis that
he stood by his declaration to the
people of British Columbia that their
claim for better terms should be
passed upon by a board of arbitration. Sir Wilfrid from start to finish
of his'Western tour had made lavish
promises of public works, all to Influence the electors. The minister ot
railways had promised a transcontinental canal to control freight
rates on tbe national transcontinental railway. Probably his next bid
would be an airship line to control
rates on the canal, but If it was
bribery to tell the people of British
Columbia that they should have thir
claims referred to arbitration, what
was it to promise public works
wholesale to influence the whole
province?

While it is admitted at Ottawa
that a Canadian expedition to shoot
the remainder of a herd of buffalo
in Montana has been planned, the official version of the story differs from
what was sent out from United
States sources.
It had been stated that the attorney-general of Montana had stepped in, aud that trouble would be en-
countered if any shooting were attempted. There won't be any shooting, at least, not by an organized
party.
The facts, as stated by the officers
of the interior department, are that
the herd of buffalo were purchased
by the Canadian government from a
Mexican named Pablo, in Montana.
A total of 636 of them have been
sent over to Buffalo Park—in Canada. About seventy remain and a
good deal of difficulty has been encountered in corralling them.
Pablo, it is said, represented to
the department that the trouble was
due to about a dozen old bulls in
the herd, which have a decided aversion to crossing the border, and are
the leaders in the breakaway that
attends any effort to get them moved
to a point of shipment.
He suggested that these be shot
and the Idea appealed to the officials.
Some old-time buffalo hunters in the
West conceived the idea that it would
be excellent sport for them to undertake to despatch the recalcitrant element in the herd, and they made
preparations to go on the hunt.
The idea, however, did not appeal
to Montana people, who thought the
whole herd, or what remains of it,
was to be wiped out.
The attorney-general gave an opin.
ion that the wild buffalo are subject
to the protection of the state, and the
idea of shooting any of them by an
organized expedition was abandoned.
Pablo, the erstwhile owner, will
probably himself dispatch the ringleaders causing the difficulty, so that
the others can be got together and
shipped to join the rest of the herd
in Buffalo Park.

Chief Inspector Dew of Scotland
Yard, the detective whose name is
well known in Canada through his
connection with Ihe celebrated Crippen case, lias tendered his resignation to the Chief Commission of Police in London. He will, therefore,
sever liis lung connection with Scotland Yard on December 4. His resignation has not come as a surprise to
the deparlment, as it. was known before he took up the Crippen case
thai lie intended shortly to resign,
having completed his 29 years service. When only 19 years old, Mr.
Dew came up to London from the
Midlands to become a constable, and
wns enrolled in the Metropolitan Police force. Though now he is only 47
years of age, he has seen practically
more service than any other mem-j

elapsed after he entered the force j
when ue was entrusted with plain
chillies duty, and within four years
lie had become a detective, his superiors having considered him a very
promising Investigator as the result
The Montreal Gazette publishes
the following from its Ottawa correspondent:—
"There is a persistent report current that the government has determined to appeal to the country next
autumn, and that with this in view
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has abandoned
his proposed visit to London for the
coronal ion. As soon as parliament
rises next May, it is said, he will devote himself to a tour of Quebec, the
maritime provinces and western Ontario, where he will seek to educate
the people on the naval question.
"The reason given for this choice
of front is said to be the demand of
the Ontario Liberals to seek the en-
dorsation of Hie government's naval
policy at the hands of the electorate,
as although they intended to vote
against Mr. Borden's amendment for
an immediate general election to test
public opinion on the naval proposals
they feel that an election next autumn  will be possible."

102nd regiment R. M. R., six companies and the Independent companies at Ashcroft and Grand Forks.
There will be about 800 men, rank
and file, In the various units. The
officers of these units have been for
some time pressing upon headquarters the necessity for a general camp
In order to give an opportunity for
the handling of men in large numbers and the advantage to the men
which wil accrue for the earne reason.
The site of the camp has not been
decided upon. Major Harper Is to
be congratulated on the success of
his efforts In this direction, as we understand It is largely due to him that
the success Is due.
CUANBROOK'S CITY HALL
Cranbrook.—The voting on the bylaw to raise $15,000 for the erection
of a brick city hall resulted in a verdict In favor of the bylaw, although
the total vote polled was disappointingly small. The result being 49
for, and 23 against. At a special
meeting of the city council the city
hall bylaw was finally passed and
adopted.
The tenders for the new building,
two in number, were opened and by
unanimous vote of the council the
contract was awarded to Geo. Leask
& Co., whose tender was somewhat
higher than that of to. R. Beattie,
the only other tenderer. George
Leask's figures were $15,320, and W.
R.  Beatty's  $14,000.     Consideration
was shows the Leask tender in
view of the original contract awarded him, which was canceled whea the
board of trade requested that the
new city hall he built of briek.

UNSANITARY BAKERIES
Vancouver. — Allegations of a
startling character were made at a
meeting of the Trades and Labor
council in this city, whea It was
stated that the conditions prevailing
in some of the bakers' premises ln
the city were a disgrace to aay community. Several charges were preferred, the information being disclosed by delegates, who, la attempting to get members for the Bakers'
union, got In touch with some of
what they called "the filthy dens."
It was declared that ln the trip of
inspection men of many nationalities,
speaking different tongues, had been
encountered and It was further reported that some of them were working all hours and making a bed on
top of the troughs beneath which
dough was kneaded. One delegate
astounded the assembly by remark
Ing that he had known of a man
handling bread who was suffering
from eczema on one of his arms. Another referred to general Insanitary
conditions in evidence, and It was
resolved that the city authorities and
police be approached with a view
to seeing that the shops' regulation
act was enforced.
IMMENSE ESTATES
Money That Awaits Claimants in the
Exchequer Courts
Two mammoth estates have been
re-sworn for probate, with the result
that the exchequer has made a
tremendous haul, £3,050,000 being
payable in succession and other
duties.
The late Mr. Charles Morrison died
ln May, 1909, and a month later the
value of his estate was returned at
the record figure of £6,660,666, "as
far as at present can be ascertained."
Yesterday, however, it was resworn at £10,936,666, an increase of
£10,936,666, an increase of £4,270,-
000, and possibly the full extent of
the fortune is not definitely ascertained even yet.
On the figures of the re-sworn
valuation, the estate duty alone
amounts to £1,040,500, and the total
levy of the exchequer In the form of
estate duty, legacy duty, succession
duty and settlement estate duty will
probably amount to two millon
pounds.
It is probably the largest estate in
this country of which anyone haB had
absolute disposal. The late Mr. Chas.
Morrison Inherited from his father
In 1857, £1,000,000, and the £11,
000,000 which he left represents a
little lees than the sum to which his
original inheritance would have accumulated with sompound Interest at
five per eeat.
Mr. Morrison, who died la May,
1909, in his 98nd year, was the son
of a pooi Hampshire mas, who n»ae
to London and ssade a fertuae as
a draper. He believed in "sssall profits and quick returns." Inheriting- a
large sum of money, the late Mr
Morrison engaged as a city financier,
promoting all kinds of enterprises,
and  ready  to buy anything  or Bell
anything. Dressing shabily, he often
lunched on an apple or bun eaten
as he walked along the street. At
the age of 85 he published a book
entitled "Doubts About Darwinism,
by a Semi-Darwinian." Although one
of the wealthiest men in a wealthy
city, he was unknown except to a
few friends and the extent of his vast
fortune was never realized.
The second estate re-sworn was
tbat of the late Alfred Beit, who died
in 1906, leaving about £2,000,000 for
public uses, of which £1,200,000 was
left to trustees for the development
of communication ln Africa—Including the Cape to Cairo railway, and
the Cape to Cairo telegraph system.
His estate was sworn not long ago
after his death, at £3,000,000, "as
far as at present can be ascertained"
but it has been re-sworn at £8,049,-
616  0s 5d.
The death duties payable out of
Mr. Beit's estate were those fixed by
Sir William Harcourt's act of 1894.
The estate duty amounts to £643,-
909; on about £2,500,000 legacy
duty of ten per cent is chargeable,
and on the balance three per cent
would be payable, making the total
exchequer levy on the property about
£1,050,000.
Had Mr. Belt died subsequent to
April, 1909, his estate would have
had to pay about £1,208,000 estate
duty, and the total duties would have
amounted to about £1,800,000, or an
increase under Mr. Lloyd-George's
scheme of nearly three-qnartere ef a
million, as compared with the Sir
William Bareonrt rate.

TO HOLD LUMBBS
Cranbrook District Lnmbsiacsa TO
Hot fott
A well attended meetiag of the
Cranbrook district lumbermen was
held recently at the Hotel Cranbrook
committee rooms on the call ef W. A.
Anstle, secretary of the Mountain
Lumbermen's association. Various
matters of special Import to tha district lumbermen were discussed. One
matter of great importance was the
question of present selling priees. After lengthy discussion It was the
unanimous expression of opinion that
mill men should hold their present
stocks for the next six months and
not attempt to force sales at present,
as the prices obtainable ln view of
Increased cost of production, were
quite  unprofitable.    The part year
ku mm ene ef th* heaviest ea record in the matter of sales, but at the
present moment the millmea have
about as heavy stocks ea haad as
they bad at this time lea* yaer. The
season was, generally sneaking, a
very satisfactory one, and whilst baring is light now there Is eremr pre*-,
pect of a strong demand tn 1911.
Prairie retailers stocks are new below normal and manufacturers have
every reason to anticipate aa excellent trade next year. An j ther matter
up for discussion wai the enforcement of the B. C. lousing scale in
the interior. Up to the present the
Doyle scale has been In force and It
is noted locally that If Ihe B. C. seal*
be enforced it will mean a grave Injustice to interior mill men, who
handle tar ibi'.t Inge thsn their
coast compeUtirs. It wsnlil. In fact,

Why the Scott Act Should be Defeated
Anything appearing in this
column under the above head
is published by the Press
Committee of the opponents
of the Scott Act and is not intended as representing the
views of this paper.
Easily Explained
A writer in the Optimist asks why
the "blind piggers" are coming back
to the town six months too soon. This
is easy to answer. Dr, Spencer is the
man to blame for it. lie has been
telling the people in Vancouver that
alter (lie iltli Prince Ruperl will be
a dry town. These people have be-
lleved him and wish to get in on
tiie ground floor. To quote from a
book once well known to some of the
Scoti Act champions: "Wheresoever
tiie carcass is there will the eagles !
be gathered together."
The Deadly Parallel
The following   appeared    in   last
night's Optimist.    We do not know!
whether or not it is true. Experience J
has taught us to doubt the truth of
anything appearing under the heading of the Scott Act champions, but i
we hope that the following is cor j
rect:—
"All over Englaifd the saloonkeeper? are asking for a decrease in license and in rent because of an ever
fai'ing business. One brewery firm
ln asking for decreased assessments
declared thatd tiring the past two
years the trade in beer in England
had fallen ten per cent, and added
thai "there seemed to be no stop In
the fall  of consumption of beer.' "
England is about the only part of
the English speaking world, if we
ex.cpt soutii Africa, which has never
flirted with prohibitory laws, but lias
contended itself witli a strict license
and regulation system. The result,
according to our Scott Act friends
has been a great falling off in the
consumption of intoxicating liquors.
Compare tin's with the following,
clipped from the commercial column
of the Seattle "P.-I.," showing the
result of our American cousins' attempts to attain the same result
through the medium of prohibitory
exaetments: —
"Washington, Nov. 27. — The
United States has just passed
through a banner year for drinks
Here is the nation's record for the
twelve months ended on June 30, as
it shows in the figures of the internal revenue bureau:
* Distilled spirits—163,000,000 gallons; 30,000,000 gallons more than
the year before.
Fermented liquors — 5 0,4 S 5,111
barrels; an increase of 3,000,000
barrels.
Moonsliinlng in  Dry States
illicit distilling and manufacturing of moonshine whisky is on the in.
crease 'especially,1 the bureau says,
'where there are state-wide prohibition laws.'
Many Stills ih South
Commissioner Cabell's report,
speaking of illicit distilling, says
Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina
and Soutii Carolina lead in offenses
of that character.
Within the year officers closed
1,911 plants, 200 more than last
year."
Xot the Same Thing nt AH
How is this for an argument? It
appeared in last night's Optimist:—
"The Lord Mayor of London, Sir
Thomas Strong, who was elected to
preside over the greatest city in the
world without opposition, is a total
abstainer from the use of alcohol."
This is probably correct, though
the fact that it is published by our
Scott Act friends would lead one to
doubt it. We do not know anything
about the gentleman in question, but
we are willing to bet money that he
is not a prohibitionist. Right here
In Prince Rupert, we can show you
a dozen men who are total abstainers and every one of them working
against this attempt to enforce the
Scott Act. In fact, in this city the
best test you can apply to a man's
standing is his position on this question.
