MOBLEY'S MEETING
Audience  Showed   Strong   Feeling   in
Favor of William
Nanson.
Industrial   Workers Put up  Demand
for  40  Cents   an
•> Hour.
Tlhe rally in the Empress theatre
on Friday evening in the interests of
Aid. Mobley, was packed to the doors
by those anxious to hear the issues
of tlhe day discussed. There could b*
no denying that the sentiment
seemed to be strongly in favor of Mr.
Manson andl bis policy. The announcement was made that only Mr.
Manson, Mr. Douglas and the Independent labor candidate, Mr. Montgomery, would be given a place on
the programme ot'her than the candidates supporting Aid. Mobley.
Aid. Naden presided and outlined
the general character of the meeting.
A request from the Industrial
workers was read, asking that tho
canndidates declare themselves upon
the question of whether they favored
paying 45 conts an -hour for city
workmen.
Mayor Stork
Mayor Stork said that he would
not indulge in personalities.
Touching on the provincial government's bill against the city he said
as to the reservoir site the city was
charged with the work done there.
Referring to the G. T. P. question
he said it was being dragged in and
was being used in the canvass. He
did not believe it was any use keeping up the embargo upon this and
as far as ihe was concerned they
could all go to it. He believed it
was the most Important matter to be
considered. He bad bis own ideas
in the beginning. He did not believe
his own views should be taken as the
views of the city. When he first got
a letter from .Mr. Hay, he wrote a
letter. He showed the letter of Mr.
Hays and the answer to some citizens. These men said, "Stork, you
are all right. Stand by it." But a
change had taken place in the case
of some of these citizens. He was
not inclined to change. Had the
Board of Trade not, precipitated the
matter this would be much better
settled than it would.
Mr. Manson
Willam Manson was greeted with
tremendous applause.
Mr. Manson took up the question
of his absence from the city. The
short time he would be absent would
be more than made up by the extra
time wthich he would be able to give
the city in the remaining time.
As to the expenditures that were
made by the government and which
were to be charged to the city, he
had himself advised His Worship
not to be too ready to settle the various items until the government
should show that it was prepared to
give a title to the works. As to the
reservoir site, he had advised the
mayor on this point. That would be
bis policy. He would insist that the
government should be able to give
title to the site from the G. T. P.
Time for Action
As to the complaint that he had
not criticised enough, Mr. Manson
said that he was never classified as
a carping critic. He believed they
always had onougb hostility ahead
without giving too much time to
what was past.
Ho recalled the fact that, during
the days when the charter was under
discussion in tho city thero was a
great demand for the Initiative and
referendum, Most of the present
council were favorable to this. Yet
after election is was found that this
principle was altogether forgotten
and large expenditures were made
without referring them lo the people.
On the G. T. P. he was not going
to condemn or to approve of the
basis of settlement.
Aid. Pattullo had made charges
against him as being responsible for
the whole G. T. P. trouble. It was
quite usual for Aid. Pattullo to make
charges against any one who opposed him. He explained that Mr.
Cuthbert's assessment did not stand
for all time. It only stood "for last-
year. He (Mr. Manson) had had no
part in the matter of the assessment.
Police Affaire
Dealing with the charge that he
did not when government agent see
that the laws were strictly observed
Mr. Manson explained that as government" agent he had no'autbortty over
the police.   That department was un.
der the chief constable, who acted
under Superintendent Hussey of Ihe
provincial force. He had, as stipendiary magistrate, occupied a position
similar to that of Mr. Carss as police
magistrate. He had dealt out justice without fear or favor. He told
of fining one man for selling liquor
twice to the exitent of the law. To
show that, he was not In favor with
ibis class 'that man had organized
every blind pig in this city against
him. lie aided in no small measure
in the election of his opponents last.
year. He had done his duty in every
respect. He had reported upon complaints as to the police affairs.
Tho disclosures that were coining
to light in the police court at the
present time did not show that there
had been very active measures taken
to suppress trouble. It looked a
good deal to him like a wide-open
lown. .Mayor Stork and Aid. Mobley were alone responsible , for the
management of the police. It was
evident that these affairs had not
been carried out as could have been
wished.
On the question of the Industrial
workers, Mr. Manson stated that his
pfllatfiorm fixed the minimum wages
ait ?3 a day.    This did not preclude

MEET SEPARATELY
Opposing Factions in the Campaign Hold
Meetings by Themselves.
A Good Concert Is Given Public in
Empress Theatre by Alder-
manic Candidates
Commencing with this week the
system of holding meetings that are
not joint ones, was adopted by the
opposing sides in the municipal elec-
lion campaign.
In the Empress theatre last
night, a meeting somewhat out
of the usual line was held
in tlie interests of Aid. Smith, G.
W, Kerr and D, W. Morrissey. Instead of an ordinary programme of
speeches was provided with moving
pictures with several local hits.
These were greeted with laughter.
One showed Aid. Mobley's heavy auto
fire engine crashing through the
plank ways.
Each of the candidates under
whose patronage the meeting was
held delivered very brief speeches as
well as William Mansonm, the popular candidate for mayor.
D. Seguoin won loud applause for
his recitation of "Madeleine of Ver-
cheres," which was given in excellent style.
In Mclntyre hall a meeting was
held by the supporters of Aid.
Mobley. The attendance at the beginning of the meeting was not very
large but on the conclusion of the
opposition meeting In the theatre the
seats were soon filled.
Dr. Hall, one of the aldermanic
candidates presided.
A. J. Prudhomme, a new candidate, declared himself in favor of
Aid. Mobley's piatform. He contended that he had always been the
friend of the carpenters, and explained that in conect'on with the
school contract he had taken it for
$30,000, when a 10-hour day was the
rule.
Ho was contradicted from tho audience by carpenters who declared be
had never been the friend of the carpenters.
W. II. Morrison took exception to
the attitude of some of the opposing
candidates on the G. T. '.'. question,-
when Aid. Ilild tch asked him If he
could stale what Aid. Mobley's stand
on that subject was. No reply was
given.

LICENSE   QUESTION
Mayor's Action Endangers Standing of
Two Hotels in This
City.
Commission    Expunges    Minutes of
.Meeting Held ou Oct.  17
Last
********
*   *   *   *   *
The license commission has been
holding sittings for the past two days
disposing of licenses for next year.
There have been several little troubles to consider, some of which have
not yet been finally settled. The licenses of Corley fr Burgess and A. .1.
Prudhomiwe, which were grunted, it
has boon contended in an illegal
way, had to be considered. It will
be remembered that Mayor Stork at
lite adjourned sitting on Oct. 17, refused to consent to an adjournment
in the absence of Commissioner
Smith. Commissionei' Mer-ryfield
protested and refused to take part
in the proceedings, when Mayor
Stork voting alone granted the applications. Corley & Burgess 'apparently realized that their license was
in jeopardy, owing to the proceedings being irregular and took steps to
apply for a new license. On Monday,
when the commission sat it was decided to expunge the minutes of-the
meeting of Oot. 17, which nullified
the ousiness then done. This left
the two licenses granted on the authority of the mayor, illegally granted. The commission bad an application from Corley & Burgess to act
upon and granted them a new license. In the case of A. J. Prudhomme, a peculiar situation has
arisen, and nothing definite lias yet
been decided in the matter. The unfortunate situation has been created
by the determination of Mayor Stork
to proceed to act alone in the granting of licenses. Another question
that came up was a charge laid by
the chief of police against the New
Knox Hotel for selling liquor on Sunday. The commissioners renewed
tbe license and are to proceed at once
to investigate the charges. Upon the
result of the investigation It will be
decided whether the House was
guilty and what penally shall be inflicted, if it is true. A third complaint was laid against J. F. McDonald for selling by retail. This
eiharge will also be investigated.
When the board met yesterday
the minutes of the previous meetings
were read, those of Oct. 15, Oct. 17
and Dec. 14. The minutes of the
meetings with the exception of those
of Oot. 17 were confirmed.
Commissioner Merryfield wanted
to know if he had not given notice
that he was leaving the table before
the vote took place on Mr. Prud-
homme's application.
Mr. McMaster, who had taken the
minutes had no recollection.
Commisioner -Smith said that from
his standpoint the action of Mr. Merryfield would decide In Ms mind
whether Mr. Prudlhoinme's license
was granted legally or not. If Mr.
Merryfield had left the meeting he
felt the license had not been legally
granted.
Mr. Patmore said he recollected
that Commissioner Merryfield was on
bis feet when the ballot was case
Whether that would constitute having left his place or not would have
to be decided.
Commissioner Merryfield moved
that the minutes be expunged.
Commissioner Smith seconded the
motion, which  was carried.
Proceeding to the question of renewals, a communication was read
from 1-'. .1. Davidson, complaining
that the G. T. P, inn and the Premier bars bad obstructed the view
from  the outside.
Chief McCarvell put in a complaint against .1. 1-'. McDonald, He
complained that the Prince Rupert
Wholesale house had on Dec. 22 sold
liquor by retail.
Chief McCarvell also complained
that he believed the Knox hotel had
sold liquor to other than guests on
Dec. 18 and Jan. 8.
With respect to the windows being
obstructed, Commissioner Smith felt
thq chief should inform,, the- owners
that the law should be complied with
at once.
It was suggested that a week ought
to be given to do it.
Commissioner Merryfield did not
approve of a week's time being given. He thought they should be told
to clear them' at once.
His  Worship  suggested   that  the
new bylaw had only been passed a
few days.
Commisioner Merryfield asked a
reference to the old bylaw when it
was shown that, a clear view was necessary under it. The police should
see that this was done he felt. It
should not be necessary for a private person to bring a complaint.
The oliher complaints were allowed
to stand over.
Commissioner Smith moved to
take up the renewals in the order In
wthich they wen- granted.
The motion  carried.
Renewals were granted then to
the Premier hotel and to the Prince
Rupert Inn.
In the the case of the Knox hotel,
Cotninisiosner Smith was In favor of
renewing tho l'eense. When the
complaints were considered action
could be taken as the commissioners saw fit.
This was agreed 1o.
On tho application of Corley &
Blugess coming up, A. Carss representing the applicants, said that he
had put in a new application. He
asked that the board deal with this
and grant a new license. He (lid so
in view of the complications.
His Worship asked if Corley &
Burgess had now a license when it
was stated it was doubtful.
On the consideration of Mr. Prud-
homme's application, Commissioner
Smith pointed out that it was In a
similar position to the previous one.
They could not renew a license that
did not exist.
Mr. Prudhomme said be was not
represented by a legal man. Mr.
Carss had represented him in the
first instance and when the license
was granted be was assured it was
all right. He felt that if two houses
were selling liquor for months without legal licenses they should have
been taken up before this time. He
aotod in good faith. He did not
want to sell liquor contrary to law.
Commissioner Smith agreed that
as the situation now stood they
could not renew a license that had
not been legally in existence.
Mr. Prudhomme argued that if
they could grant a new license to a
house that had been selling for
months without a legal license and
then r l'u>'. to renew his license
it was taking advantage of a techni:
cality that should not be taken.
His Worship did not think that
Mr. Prudhomme should be made to
suffer.
On motion of Commissioner Smith
the application of Mr. Prudhomme
was allowed to stand over until the
others had been disposed of.
The motion carried.
J. Y. Rochester's license was renewed.
On the application for a renewal
of the Bondeaux license, Commissioner Smith said he understood
there was a verbal complaint agains.,
this being run by another man.
A. Carss said he represented Mr.
Bondeaux. A manager was in the
hotel, but Mr. Bondeaux understood
the situation and was responsible.
The remaining licenses were then all
renewed except Mr. Prudbomme's,
which stood over until today.
In connection with the wholesale
licenses it was pointed out that a
clerical error had crept Into the bylaw, and that there was no need ot
applying for a renewal.
Julius Levy asked consideration oi
his application  for a bottle  license.
A FATAL ACCIDENT
After some attention was given it,
it was decided to stand it over until
looked  into.
Sitting again this morning, the
question of Mr. I'rudhotnnie's licence
was taken up.
His Worship said that as the board
had yesterday expunged the minutes
of Oct. 17, would the situation not
now be that tho application made
by Mr. I'rudhoninie previous to that
was now alive and con hi come
up before the board now? His application was laid over rrom time to
time until Oct. 17, when ,t was acted upon. The commissioners having
expunged the minutes of this meeting left, the application still lo be disposed of.
Commissioner Merryfield was inclined to think that the application
not having been dealt with at the
regular sitting of the court, would
lapse and a new application would
have to be made.
The suggestion was made that Mr.
Patmore's opinion should be sought.
He was referred to and said that he
did not feel like giving an opinion
off-hand. He thought there was
sufficient in the contention of Mr.
Prudhomme to call for careful consideration. The point involved was
whether advertising should be done
immediately preceding the sitting or
could be done some time before.
Commissioner Smith did nol
want to take action until the point
was carefully gone into. If they
were to take for granted that the
application could be dealt with and
they were to refuse the application,
Mr. Prudhomme would be shut out
of any license for a whole year,
which might work a hardship.
W. E. Williams, city solicitor, was
sent for by the mayor and asked an

Manson's Supporters   are Given Grand
Reception in Public
Meeting.
Mil.   Smith   Proves   His   Popularity
Before  Prince  Rupert
Audience
Saturday evening's meeting in Ihe
Empress theatre, held in the Interests of William Manson, proved the
Immense popularity of that candidate. Another outstanding feature
of the gathering was the favor whictn
Aid. Smith was shown to stand in
Prince Rupert. He was given a reception which left no doubt as to
bis election at the head of the polls.
L. M. Patmore presided and asked
all candidates to the platform.
William Manson said he would not
take any time as he wanted some
of the others who bad not bad a
chance to speak, to be given an opportunity.
Mayoralty Candidates
Aid. Mobley explained more fully
his stand in the fishing question, advocating the providing of facilities
for small craft on the harbor.
II. Douglas was in favor of the
wage scale demanded by the Industrial workers.
I).  Seguoin
D. Seguoin stood before them as a
wage earner and as a supporter of
Mr. Manson. He had at the last
election opposed Mr. Manson. He
was now trying to repair the injury
he had done. In this country, under
British institutions, a man had a
right to change his opinion.
He was trying to defeat the Mob-
loy-Pattullo combination. These
men stood before them last year as
the supporters of a white Prince Rupert, After drifting along for a time
Aid. Pattullo had by high finance
secured money to begin work. It
was then hoped that the workmen
would get a chance. But by letting
large contracts the work went to
aliens and not to the men that had
come, here to make  their homes.    }
One of the criticisms used in th'e
canvass against Mr. Manson was on
the ground that as member for the
district he would be absent from the
city. Yet he had seen Mr. Garden
for two years mayor of the city and
silting it in the legislature. In Montreal he had known Mr. Prefontaine,
all hough a member of parliament,
served for two years in the mayor's
chair and was the beat mayor the
city ever saw.
He did not always agree with Mr.
Manson   politically,   but   he   felt   he
was the best man for mayor.
Aid. Pattullo
Aid. Pattullo contended that Mr.
Seguoin -was like a lot of others in
the city who had not got from tbe
city council what they wanted
(groans from tbe audience).
Aid. Pattullo said he would not be
silenced by these booh hoohs. Last
evening they came from Aid. Smith,
George Kerr and Joe Merryfield, who
were the loudest in it.
Aid. Smith came forward and described this as a lie.
After some considerable uproar,
Aid. Pattullo said he was so informed by Mr. Williams, the city solicitor and others who were present
denied that Aid. Smith acted In that
way.
Aid. Pattullo then proceeded to attack   Mr.  Seguoin.
lie said Mr. Seguoin appeared with
a   compatriot   in   his   office  and   put
up a  proposition   '"   him  thai   they

Aid. Pattullo then directed 111 i attacks upon Mr. Cnthbert, who had

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
WORTHY RECORD
OF WM. MANS
NEEDS OF PROVINCE
! Premier   McBritie's  New Year Message
Relative to British
Columbia.
There Is nothing perhaps that
shows William Manson in his truest
light better than the way in which
a few years ago, he dealt with a
labor question that came up here.
This was with respect to the men
employed in construction work on
the G. T. P. It is true that Mr. Man-
son at the time incurred the displeasure of officials of tbe G. T. P.
in his endeavor to ascertain whether certain reductions should be
made by the company. This in no
manner deterred him from standing
out against a reduction and his
course should appeal strongly to all
labor men.
This was in the spring of 1909
after the Provincial Government had
passed the G. T. P. act through the
legislature, under which the company was to pay the current rate of
wages.
Tbe finding of Mr. Manson in the
dispute which followed the reduction in pay was against the reduction. Following this action of bis,
J. D. McNiven, the fair wage officer
of the Dominion Government, made
use of Mr. Manson's report in arriving at a schedule of rates for work
in the north.
In that report, Mr. Manson gave
expression to the following—
"From tlie standpoint of the people of tliis province, however, if our
workmen on work of this kind for
which the governments, both Dominion and Provincial, are so much responsible, cannot secure a living rate
of wages, then there is something
wrong and if the railways cannot be
built mid pay fair wages they should
not be built ut nil; and with that in
view I have never felt it my duty
net ing on behalf of the government,
to encourage the payment of wages
at too low it rate."
Mr. Manson was then government
agent. It could uot be said he had
any political ends to serve at the
time. He stood out for a fair wage
being paid the men and won out for
them.
His action is characteristic of the
man. Without ostentation, he does
what he believes is in the Interests
of the public without appealing to
any clap-trap.
He   Refers   to  the  Prospects  on  the
Pacific Const, for the
Coming Year.
LORD'S VETO POWER
Tay   Pay   Holds  Opinion   That   There
Will be Giving
Way.
He  Relieves That tlie Question Will
lie Speedily Disposed of.
"Although for Ihe moment sub
merged, politics still haunts the gen
eral imagination," writes T. P. O'
Connor. "Like in a t.eck-and-neck
race on a horse race track, Interest
in the general election was maintained to the last possible moment,
as the supreme question was whether
the Liberal ministry would come
bin;; as strong as at the beginning of
tin- election. As each day brought
an almost mathematical equality of
gains and losses to the Liberals and
Tories, the parties each day watched
with the same feverish eagerness.
The last day of the election involved
the whole problem as tho one seat in
Scotland held by tbe Liberals was
expected to go back to the Tories.
"Now that the result is finally
over, the Liberals and Irish are profoundly satisfied. Some disappointment was felt at. the loss of a few
seats which better management
might have saved or were lost by
some accident or an infinitesimal
majority as in Mile End, where a
Tory was returned by a majority of
two. But the great fact remains that
contrary to all election precedents
the same Liberal ministry was returned three times in succession and
the second time on the same issue.
That issue was the abolition of the
veto power of the House of Lords.
"Premier Asquith gave indication
of the urgent importance and close
approach of the struggle on this
question by his hurried visit to the
king.
"Beyond all question, Asquith and
the other Liberal ministers mean
business and will withdraw from office unless they are allowed to carry
out their full programme. There
will be no real opposition, itself,
from the House of Lords. I regard
the abolition of the veto already as
good as carried.
"The Tories already are weakening in some of their sanest journals
and everybody now knows that Asquith, if driven to it, will have the
will and the power to create 500 Liberal peers. Even the backwoodsmen
peers perceive that his submergence
of tho present peers by these Liberal
peers would bring down Ihe whole
House of Lords In shouts of universal
laughter, and after much spluttering
and much talk the peers will yield
and probably yield before the coronation.
"Tho coronation, then, once more
comes lo the front as a powerful factor in the present situation.
"No party came out of this election
with such added prestige and power,
according to the universal acknowledgment, aa the Irish. Redmond has
added power to his following by the
higher gain than by any other political party, but, still more important,
Redmond has crushed the faction issue into one small corner of Ireland.
He has beaten Healey, his most pow.
erful opponent.
"More important than even all this
are the political conditions which
evolve from the elections. The immediate and vigorous campaign
against the House of Lords, and the
clear, decisive utterances on Home
Rule by Asquith and the other Lib
eral leaders during the election have
shown the Irish people that at last
their liberation is in sight.
"This fact, submerging all the
minor issues and closing up all of the
small dissensions, gives Redmond a
freer hand than be ever had in his
career, and makes thus the relations
between him and Asquith easier,
closer and safer."
 o	
Whatever light may be thrown
upon Chinese immigration by the
commission now taking evidence,
some interesting facts have been
brought out about the methods of
the executive of the Liberal association, and of the patronage committee
operating in this field. We find advices to the Government at Ottawa,
and discover that, a message sent to
tho chairman goes without his
knowledge, and the chairman is unable lo learn who sent it. The evidence given by the members of tha
party executive, and by the patronage
committee has greatly interested and
surprised the rank and file of the
Liberal party in this city.
The next masquerade carnival to
be given by the management of the
skating rink will be on the evbening
of Jan. 12, election night. The arrangements will be perfect and an
event second to none previously held,
will be put on.

EBERTS & TAYLOR,

In a New Year message to the
Colonist, made by request, setting
forth the pressing needs of the province of British Columbia for 1911,
Premier McBride said—
"What does British Columbia want
In 1911? That is a very large subject, for British Columbia is growing like a young giant, and the only
way of providing for good, healthy
expansion is to minister adequately
to its needs.
First and foremost, what is wanted is a continuous and solid growth;
and to keep up with unabated vigor
the splendid western push and energy that has already done so much
to advance the province. We must
all work together with the one end
in view—the general good.
The immense area of British Columbia and its vast stores of still
undeveloped wealth at once suggest
the necessity for more population.
We need to secure more settlers,
people who will be of real benefit to
the country, and who are willing to
do their share in development and
general progress.
To induce settlement, there is another want—means of communication, roads and railways. The success that has attended the advent of
railways already in existence has
done so niucih for the southern part
of the province, that it takes no
prophet to predict the wonderful results that must come from the completion of the Canadian Pacific extensions, as well as from the Grand
Trunk Pacific, the Canadian Northern and the Kettle River Valley roads
now in process of construction. In
addition, by surveys, and the building of roads, the government, is trying to give as large measure of communication as possible in the various
districts of the province.
Another want, is an increase in
agriculture and fruit-growing (wthich
has already in a few yaers become a
most, important industry), poultry-
raising and dairying.
We want more industries, more
capital to develop our resources, and
all those things which make for general progress.
And along with the material needs,
the people of the province must keep
in mind the higher ideals of life, and
by their example prove to the newcomers from other lands that here
we possess true citizenship and patriotism, that we are proud of the
part we play as Canadians and partners in the empire, a law-abiding,
good-living community, striving to
play our part honestly and temperately, with the end in view to build
up a great, a strong, a happy and
a contented country."

done for the working men of this
province the tenth part that J. II.
Hawthornthwaite, M. P. P., the Socialist leader in the legislature, he
may be qualified to do some criticising. Mr. Hawthornthwaite Is
ready to criticise the government in
somewhat similar terms to those used
by Mr. Montgomery, but it is quite
evident that his language is intended
to be general in its application, for
he is willing to admit that the McBride government assisted him in
passing the legislation in the interests of workingmen that has been
put through by him during the past
few years. On the contrary from the
Liberal party in the province, Mr.
Hawthornthwaite always contends
he found no assistance. It was the
Conservative party he had to appeal
to in getting the legislation put
through the 'house, which clearly
indicates that tho McBride government Is not antagonistic to the labor
men.

PRINCE RDPERT JOURNAL
ROUSING RALLY
(Continued from Page One)
to go on the platform showed that
he was a politician.
Dealing with Mr. Morrison's criticism of the letting of the contract for
the general hospital, Aid. Hilditch
told of his having interviewed some
of the directors looking to the eiglnt-
hour clause being inserted. He was
told it was too late to do that as
tenders had been called for. The
man who received the contract refused to go on with the contract.
New tenders were called as the deposits had all been returned. He then
renewed his demand's for an eight-
hour clause being inserted in the
contract. The builders' exchange
then, like a lot of children withdrew
its donation.
Referring to Mr. Montgomery as
the labor candidate, there came cries
of "No, no." Aid. Hilditch took tbe
ground that be was not consistent In
advocating Aid. Mobley's stand on
the demands of the Industrial workers of the city.
Aid.  Smith
Aid. Smith was given a very hearty
reception. He was against mud-
slinging. He never wished lo introduce that as there were more important things.
Aid. Pattullo bad criticised him
(lAd. Smith) in connection with the
G. T. P. question. Aid. Pattullo represented him as not a fit person to
be entrusted with that. He was not
a man to pass judgment on his own
case. Only an ignorant man would
do this.
When he knew Mr. Tate was coming to go into this subject, he had
discussed the matter with many of
the citizens and went into the meet>
ing with Mr. Tate after having very
fully discussed this question. They
all went into the conference, he believed, honest in the opinions they
held. He (Aid. Smith) introduced
the proposition that finally stood as a
basis.
Five voted for it; two for it with
strings on their votes. They were Aid.
Pattullo and Aid. Lynch. Aid. Smith
asked Aid. Pattullo if he had consulted any of the citizens on the subject.
Aid. Pattulo said he had not. He
was not egotistical enough to believe
that he knew more than all the citizens. He was willing to consult
with them always (applause).
Dealing with the financial subject,
Mr. Smith said that Aid. Pattullo was
authorized to make financial ar-
i angements.
The Bank of Montreal gave the
money. The bank did not. give that
money on the personality of Aid.
Pattullo. It was because it was
Prince Rupert. Aid. Pattullo was the
messenger between the city and the
bank. The contracts were prepared
and taken to sign. The city had not
been doing its financing yet. That
would come when the city went on
the markets of tbe world to raise
the money to pay back tbe bank. If
they sent suoh an egotistical man as
Aid. Pattulo the results could not be
expected to be asperfeot as otherwise.
Aid. Pattullo, In explanation said
that Mayor Stork also voted against
the agreement.
In conection with the report of
his leaving the city, Aid. Smith said
arrangements had now been carried
out by wlhiah he would remain perhaps a year and a half or two years.
He expected to stay here long
enough to see Aid. Pattullo die the
natural political death that was coming to him.
He explained his position on the
liquor license by-law. In placing a
clause in the bylaw which stated that
no license should be cancelled except
for misdemeanor, the council was
doing something which it had not
power to do.
Jt was misleading. It was put in
there for political purposes. It was
intended to mislead license holders
to believe that this rested with the
council, when il did not. lie argued
that the principle was all right, but
there was no use misleading Ihe public.
"1 do not need to parade myself,"
said Aid. Smith, in closing.
S. M. Newton
S. M. Newton was in favor of the
inc. eased rale of pay for city workmen, as he fell it would bring into
the city more permanent residents
among that class. Under the conditions prevailing here it was impossible for a man with a family to live
as he ought to on the $3 rate.
He went very fully into several
questions of why Aid. Mobley should
not be returned. He prefaced this
by asking Aid. Mobley to come forward and state what he had done
that warranted his return.
Aid. Mobley, coming forward, stated that he would not take up the;
time of the meeting to do so, at
which Mr. Newton stated that the
a'derman had not disappointed him

WILLIAM MANSON FOR MAYOR
The Aldermanic Candidates     who are supporting him
will also be present and address the meeting.
in the least and bad given no reasons
why he should be elected.
V. I. Palmer
P. I. Palmer explained bis position,
lie had had no desire lo come out
as a candidate. He had, however,
after considerable solicitation done
so as an independent candidate. As
to his stand on labor questions, be
argued that, in his factory he employed a large force of men. The
work was going on under conditions
that were agreeable to himself and
the men employed.
If elected be would do his best to
advance the city of    Prince    Rupert
and he asked their suffrage.
D,  W.  Morrissey
D. W. Morrissey, on request of the
Industrial workers, made his position
clear. He said Mr. Newton on his
stand came very near duplicating his
position. In putting 45 cents an
hour on common labor it was a rate
most unusual. The conditions in
Prince Rupert were suoh, however,
that he felt that his was warranted
where married men were involved.
Single men might be assigned lees.
He would pledge a free  employment agency to be opened in the city
where laborers could be given an opportunity to find places.
Dr. Clayton
Dr. Clayton referred to the fact
that Aid. Pattullo had been virtual
mayor last year. If Aid. Mobley and
Aid. Pattullo were again elected, Aid.
Pattullo would be again virtually
mayor. Did tbe citizens want to
have for mayor a man who was not
elected by them?
With respect to Mayor Stork on
hling pigs, Dr. Clayton referred to
the advertisement that appeared after Mayor Stork was elected giving
the hling pigs 24 hours lo cinlose. It |
was the first lime he bad ever beard
of a premium  being put on  crime. |
Aid. Lynch was like Tennyson's
"Light Brigade" owing to the street
work going on about him. There
were blasts to right of him, blasts
to left of liiin and blasts behind him.
Constructing a railway was different to building streets in a city. It
was transitory and rush work. What
was wanted here was citizens. There
had been too much railroading hero
and he would rather favor getting
railroad gangs off the streets.
Many of the same men that stood
with Mayor Stork last May were behind William Manson today.
Other Speakers
W. H. Montgomery was subjected
to a good deal of hecvkling with respect to bis labor attitude.
M. M. Stephens made but a short
address, followed by O. H. Nelson,
who announced his Intention of running for school trustee.
W. E. Williams, the city solicitor,'
made  some  explanations  as to  the
solicitor's work.
The meeting closed with cheers for
.Mr. Manson.

ALD. MOBLEY'S MEETING
(Continued From Page One.)
an increased rate if It were found
necessary. If 33 a day was not found
sufficient, he would be ready to meet
the workmen at any time and go
fully into the question of wages and
settle with them ae to wihat was
proper.
Dr. Ball
Dr. Hall said his policy would be
the policy of the old council. He
was not able at present to say what
be would do on the labor question
which had been put forward.
<>. Oi Emmerson
G. C. Emmerson said he was heartily in accord with the policy of the
last council, lie did not expect any
personal gain, but he felt it his duty
to help tho city ah/tig.
On the labor question he said he
would not endorse any policy that be
felt would be a detriment to the city.
He bad bad 125 men working for him
and he did not believe any man
would said be did not act fairly.
Aid. Mobley
Aid. Mobley contended that Mr.
Manson was just as responsible for
the enforcement of the law as tbe
police commissioners. There was as
much blame upon the citizens w'ho
stated they knew about these things
and did not acquaint the police commissioners with it.
He favored municipal ownership of
all utilities and the doing without
them until they could be got In that
way.
The work of the coming year he
felt would be practloally all done by
day labor.
He believed the hospital should be
supported by the city and the control
of it.
He advocated some method of handling the fishing industry so ae to
encourage It here.
If that scale of wages asked for
was to the laborers on the street, he
would not endorse it, the city was
paying as high a rate as possible,
said Aid. Mobley in reply to the demands of the Industrial  Workers.
When you bring any European to
this country and lake him to your
bosom as a cltzen, he had the same
rights as any one else and he would
so act, sai Aid. Mobley.
II.  Douglas
II. Douglas read his platform as
usual.
Aid. Barrow
Aid. Barrow stated that be was in
support,  of  Aid.   Mobley.     He  liked
cheap labor because it was usually
efficient labor. He was not in favor
of  municipal  ownership.
W. H. Montgomery
W. H. Montgomery wanted to introduce the day labor system altogether.
He was opposed to licensing bartenders. If this prevailed the bartender would be made a scapegoat
for the proprietor.
He favored the demands of the Industrial Workers. It was impossible
for a working man to maintain a
famiily on S3 a day.
On the G. T. P. proposition he be-
lived all should state what they were
going to stand by. A one corporation
town was the most heartless that
could be found.
He was voting for Frank Mobley
beeause he had opposed him (Mr.
.Montgomery) more than any one else
at the council. He looked back at
things from a different view to what
be did.
In reply to a question he said he
was not supporting the policy of Mr.
Mobley. He did not agree with it.
He did it on the principle that of all
evils choose the least.
Asked why, as a working man, he
would vote for a man who would
come out and say he would not vote
to increase the wages of the slaves of
the city, he replied
"Because he had the courage of
his convictions and came out and said
he would do it."
Aid. lynch
Aid. Lynch defended the method
of doing work on the street during
the year.
The G. T. P. will give driveways
to their wharves without asking for
it, he believed, so that Mr. Morrls-
sey's demands were not necessary.
On the G. T. P. proposition Aid.
Lynch said he had cronojnce.l vtewH.
The council submitted to Mr. Tate
the agreement they had.
E. H. Mortimer        -.
E. II. Mortimer if elected would
try to look to the interests of the taxpayers. He was prepared to stand by
the terms put up by the outgoing
council to the G. T. P.
1). H.  Morrison
D. H. Morrison was sorry more
ladles had not votes for then he
would feel sure that Aid. Mobley and
he would be elected. He had sat for
seven years in the council in his old
home.
Mr, Morrison was asked why be
favored the donation of the Builders' Exchange being taken from tbe
hospital?
"Because I believed that contract
was let unfair,"  said  Mr.  Morrison.
Asked to explain, he said, tenders
were called; these were then thrown
out and clauses were put in for polit-
cal purposes.
Aid. Hilditch said that he would
the next evening tell why tlhoee were
withdrawn.
Asked if he posed as a champion
of the eight-hour day, Mr. Morrison
said in reply that he did not so pose.
He found he could get more work
out of a man working eight hours
than longer hours. He did not stand
for saying that a man should be
compelled to work only eight hours
if he did not want to.
John Cuiric
John Currie could not say that he
could grant 45 cents an hour. He
advised the workers to get all they
could.
Aid. PattnllO
Aid. Pattullo on [he question of
the Industrial workers, took exception to the stand of Mr. Manson as
to the subjects. He said that he
felt that he demands were premature. He was the middle man between capital and labor. He did not
propose to be held up by the petitions just before election day. He
would discuss this with these men
after election if they saw fit to go
into it.
"Is that not exactly the position
I took?" asked Mr. Manson, without
receiving a reply.
W. E. Williams, the city csolicitor,
asked to be heard and explained some
matters that had come up at the previous meeting.
 o	
Out of 5,214,693 votes cast at the
recent British election 129,618 were
for Nationalis candidates. The Unionist vote was somewhat larger than
the straight Liberal vote, but more
than a quarter of a million smaller
than the combined vote of the Unionists and Nationalists. The combined Liberal, Labor and Nationalist
vote is 405,000, in round numbers,
mu'i: than the Unionist vote. In
other words, tbe coalition majority is
slightly under 8 per cent of thewhole
popular vote, but the coalition has
about 60 per cent of the members
elected. Certainly representation in
the United Kingdom does not bear
any closer relation to the popular
vote than it does in Canada.

be would say that if the application
had never been allowed nor turned
down it was still before the court u>

they might adjourn.
Mr. Prudhomme wanted to have
this disposed of as soon as possible.
Hi- did not wish to have his license

As to complaints against the Knox

It was finally agreed to adjourn
