OPENING RALLY HELD
IN EMPRESS THEATRE
William Manson Puts Forward a Sane Progressive Policy
Upon Which He Appealed to the Electorate
in Coming Contest.
The rally held in the Empress
theatre on Tuesday evening in the
interests of William Manson and
his supporters was a grand success. In spite of the fact that the
evening was stormy, the theatre was
filled, many ladies being among those
In attendance.
Thomas Dunn presided and in an
able way handled the meeting so that
good progress was made. In spite of
this, however, owing to the large
number of speakers it was well after
11 o'clock before the meeting closed.
Mr. Manson made a splendid impression and his popularity was
shown in an unmistakeable way. He
dealt at some length with financial
matters, which are always somewhat
difficult to handle in such a way as
to keep a mixed audience fully interested.
Many of the aldermanic candidates
had to cut their remarks short in
order not to trespass upon others'
time.
In opening the meeting, Mr. Dunn
invited any of the members of the
council who were running to come
on the platform. He asked that each
speaker should be given a careful
hearing. Aid. Mobley and Aid. Pattullo came forward.
William Mnusoit
Calling upon William Manson, as
the first speaker, the coming mayoi
was given a most hearty reception-
Making reference to the meeting
called by the mayor a few days ago
he said that lie was in hearty accord
with such meetings. Had there been
more of these meetings earlier In the
year when the members of the coumil
might have met with ratepayers more
frequently it would have been advantageous to the city. With regard to
the criticism that he was to be out of
the city for about six weeks, Mr.
Manson said that Mayor Stork had
been away about seven weeks during
a seven months' term of office. Sure;
ly It would not be out of place foi
him to be absent six weeks In tweh'6
months.
The situation was now different
from what it was seven months ago
The coming council would have to
start where the present council left
off and make the best of the situa-.
tlon. He was not going to indulge
in petty criticism of the council. Sev.
en years' experience had taught him
the difficulties that a council met.
But while the council had to begin
with everything new it had no handh
caps in the way of established condi'
tions
Financial Policy
He had differed from the old council on the financial policy. He had
favored the borrowing of money
upon the general revenue of the city
for street work. He had no objection to grading the whole of the citv
if the money was available. Had the
council Instead of undertaking ths
grading of the whole of section 1
only done what was necessary In thd
congested sections, the city would
would have more money to spend In
other parts.
Going Into the financial situation
Mr. Manson showed thai the borrow.
lug power of the city, based on tin
assessment, would be about $1,600,.-
000 Ta! In up the expenditure al
ready proi Ided for, he Bl e ■ d I a(

Credit of City
There was tints practically $1,290,.
000 of the borrowing power of tha
city provided for. Tills left onlj
about $310,000 additional that could |
be expended before the limit of the
borrowing power was- reai I
was evident, therefore, thai    !|
provement? to be undertaken next
year would nearly exhaust the borrowing powers of the city.
One of the arguments In favor of
the work being undertaken in the
city was to provide a pay roll so that
residents of the city might have work
to do and money might be circulated
during the few years they were waiting for the railway to be constructed.
But if the borrowing power of the
city was exhausted in this way there
was a time coming when work might
have to cease and the workingmen
leave the city.
The money, he felt, should be borrowed on a longer term.
Longer Life of Loan
What was required was as small a
weight of taxation as possible, so that
as the value of property advanced
the burden would not be so heavily
felt, He showed that on a $10,000
lot the taxes would, under the present system adopted, where the money
was to be repaid in 20 years, amount
to $59.23 a year; a $5,000 lot would
pay $26.25; a $2,000 lot would be
taxed $23.25, and a $1,000 lot,
$18.75. Had the money been borrowed on the longer term of, say 50
years, the taxation would have been
on a $10,000 lot, $26.40; on a
$5,000 lot, $13.20; on a $2,000 lot,
$5.28, and on a $1,000 lot, $2.64.
Reverting to his policy enumerated
last year, Mr. Manson pointed out
that had a sum of money been borrowed on the credit of the whole city
there would have been better results
to I lie city as a whole.
Had his policy been carried out
a- portion of the money would have
been expended upon the streets in
section 1 that would serve the congested portions. There would then
have been money spent in sections 5
and 6 and in 7 and 8.
Borrowing Money
Dealing with Aid. Pattullo's figures with respect to the borrowing
from tbe bank, Mr. Manson said that
the representation that borrowing
$500,000 at 6 per cent as against
$1,000,000 at 5 per cent, certainly
showed a gain in favor of the present system. But this was a very
misleading way of presenting the situation. It would not be necessary
to borrow $1,000,000 at once. Taking it on the same basis as was represented, that is, to borrow $500,000
from the bank at 6 per cent and to
borrow $500,000 and Issue debentures at 4% per cent. The $500,000
at 6 per cent would mean $30,000 In
interest. The $500,000 on the 4y2
per cent debentures represented $22,-
500, or a saving of $7,500. Borow-
ing from the bank as the money was
required effected a saving In Interest. By borrowing $500,000 by the
sale of debentures, delivery of the
bords can be made at a date when
a large proportion of the money Is
required and a saving can be made
by getting interest on the balance
deposited In the hank. By selling
the debentures  beforehand  there  Is

In the police court this evening
the charge against D. Zarelli of running a common gaming house on Co-
mox avenue, was proceeded with.
The accused was defended by L. W.
Patmore.
Three foreign witnesses were examined by the prosecution in support of the charge. All of them testified they played In a game of poker. They contended that Zarelli
and two others played; that chips
for 5 cents, 26 cents and 50 cents
were used and that. Zarelli took some
chips out as Hie banker. Drinks were
served by a bartender.
For the defense, Zarelli  was put
on the stand and under examinalIon
denied  that there  was any  unequal
chance so far us he was concerned.

know you are right, but plead guilty

He had given the money back on
the advice of Mr. Patmore, who told
him just to tell the truth.    Accused
said to Mr. Patmore, "I'm afraid I'm

The meeting held last evening in
the rkating sink in the interest of
Wiliam Manson and the candidates
supporting him in ward 2 was a
grand success. There was an excellent attendance of voters, which
inoluded a number of ladles.
At no stage of the proceedings was
there any doubt as to the popularity
of Mr. Manson and his supporters
were likewise given a hearty reception.
F. M. Lannie presides. In view
of the fact that there were so many
speakers, the chairman took up little
time himself, contenting himself
with an introduction of the' speakers. Mr. Manson was the first speaker to address the gathering.
.Mr. Manson
Mr. Manson expressed his pleasure
at meeting the electors of Ward 2.
He made reference to the seven
months that had passed in the city's
history. He set their minds at rest
as to upsetting anything that had
been done. He was prepared to take
up the work in such a manner as not
to affect too many changes. If possible, he would like to see a change
in the system of borrowing money.
For any large expenditure he felt
that the people should be given a
chance to vote upon it. He took
issue with the first council in borrow,
ing $400,000 without the people being asked to pass upon it. He felt
that with works such as grading the
streets in section 1, which was everlasting, the term should be longer
than 20 years.
The greatest care should be taken
in the early stages of the city's history not to burden the people any
heavier than  possible.
He was glad to see that • the
council had gone as far as it had
with respect to the securing of a
permanent water supply.
In connection wtih the sewerage
system he stated that an active policy would have to be pursued.
As to the electric lighting and the
telephone system he favored keeping the rates as low as possible. If
a large addition to the lighting
plant was needed he would favor the
floating of a loan.
Law Enforcement
He would stand for the enforcement of the law. For the past few
months the laws had not been enforced as they should have been.
The police commission was charged
with this. He would favor a strict
enforcement   (applause).
On the G. T. P. taxation question
Mr. Manson reiterated the former
announcements on that subject that
he would do his best to reach a settlement and then submit it to the!
people.
The labor question was dealt with
when the candidate read his stand
on that point. It was an Important
point, he said. If In building up a
city here, care should be taken to see
that, the money was expended in such
a way that, it would the bolter find
Its way inio lines that would b nei It
the city by circulating among the
merchants. Tbe class of labor now

quickly  accomplish   the  task  of  visiting the outlying  parts.
W,   H.   Mortimer
Mr. Mortimer made a very short
address.
Asked for his stand on the labor
question, Mr. Mortimer said that as
it had become the practice to have
an eight-hour day and $3 a day, he
would favor that being continued.
H.   Douglas
H. Douglas being called upon read
his platform.
He was sorry that so many men
were unable to get work during the
summer. If he was elected he would
see that these men got work (applause).
T>v. Clayton
Dr. Clayton regretted that there-
was not a chance to hold a meeting
ove  Hays  creek.
He did not blame Aid. Mobley for
all that took place in the council last
year. Had the council lived up to its
promise to close the blind pigs in 24
hours?     (Cries of no).
The council had not lived up to
its promise to let out the street work
by station work. It was let In large-
contracts. Yet. these contractors,
and he did not blame them for it,
were letting the work out by stations (applause). If it could be
done by them It could be done by
the council.
Aid. Mobley wanted to be judged
by his record. He had followed the
council proceedings and yet there
was   not   much   to   show.
He wanted lo know why the coun-
i id allowed the $5 1,000 loan from
the government to go by, which
might have been obtained at 4 per
cent instead of 0 per cent. It was
a small matter but it was worth
saving.
Dealing with the question of public ownership of utilities—he did.
not favor keeping up the rates so as
to give a revenue which would go to
reduce the taxation so that nonresidents derived the benefits. This
applied to telephones and electric
lights. He would favor bringing:
this forward and making the prices
of these as low as possible. The
men who were here were those who
should get any benefits going.
G. O.   Emmerson
G. 0. Emmerson said he was a supporter of Mr. Mobley. He was a pioneer In the city. He had engineering ability thai should be of service
on the council.
1). H. Morrison
D. H. Morrison said he would reserve his address until the next night
when he would appear at Aid. Mob-
ley's meeting in the theatre.
Asked as to his stand on the labor
question, Mr. Morrison said he would'
agree to the principle of eight-hours
a day to all labor classes.
"In   case   you   are   defeated   hnw
many   hours   will   you     work     y -
men?" he was asked.
Mr. Morrison replied he would
work them as many hours as thej
wanted to, fi, 7, 8, or 10 hours.
Mr, Keyser rose and asked Mr.
Morrison If he was agreeable lo an

YOUNGEST PREMIER
Hon.  Richard   McBride  Celebrates ":
Fortieth Anniversary of
His Birthday,
The Prime Minister of British Colum.
bia Has Been in Power
Seven Years.
The Hon. Richard McBride, K.C.,
L.L.B., M.L.A., Premier of British
Columbia—and incidentally the
youngest prime minister of any British dominion, state or colony—a few
days ago celebrated the fortieth anniversary of his birth, he having been
born within the high walls of the
penitentiary at New Westminster
(of which his father was governor)
on December 15, 1870. He has now
been prime minister of his native
province since June, 1903, being but
thirty-three when he achieved the
high honors and accepted the responsibilities of the premiership.
And every year makes more appreciable the quality of his statesmanship, and his importance as a national more than a merely provincial figure, says the Colonist.
In comparison with tbe Hon. Newton James Moore, C. M. G., Premier
and State Secretary of West Australia, whom the British Antipodean
pres.' have devoted much attention
to as "the youngest premier that any
British Dominion has even known,"
il may be noted that Hon. .Mr. Moore
was born at Bunbury, in the state
over which he now presides, in May,
1S70, and succeeded to his present
position of high lienor in 1000. Premier McBride, while his junior In
age by about six months, is, therefore, his senior in political distinction, by three years, achieving the
premiership of British Columbia at
thirty-three, whereas Hou. Mr. Moore
became Premier of "Westralia" at
thirty-six.
It is interesting to note that both
these "youngest premiers" of Greater
liiiiiiin are .Native rions of the. lands
they rule.
lion. Richard McBride occupies a
unique position in Western Canadian politics. He is not only the
youngest of provincial premiers, the
lender of the first British Columbia
government established on party
lines, but what is more important
to the welfare of the country, the
first government of British Columbia, in many years at least, which
has wholly won the confidence of the
people, has placed and maintained a
provincial business and provincial
credit on a sound basis, has anticipated and provided for the developing necessities of the country, and
has in general so discharged its obligation as custodian of the i public
business has not yet been touched by
the breath or suggestion of any scandal. Premier McBride is a big
man. In the eyes of visitors (who
sometimes obtain a truer perspective
than do those "familiar with the
view") he is as truly a type of the
best Western Canadianism as Col.
Roosevelt is or ever was the type of
aggressive American citizenship. He
does not play the "game of politics."
He makes it something more worthy
than the "game" into which, in other
hands, it had degenerated. Premier
McBride is a Conservative because he
finds better material available in
Conservative citizens and Conservative policy for bettering conditions in
this province and in this Dominion
than are available to his hand elsewhere. But he is not a partlzan politician, albeit there are already very
many, on the Atlantic as well as on
the Pacific slope and all tbe way between, who are wathclng his developing statesmanship with pride and
prophetic vision, counting upon the
altogether dominant personality of
Western Canadian public affairs as
a man lit fur Conservative und national leadership when the time shall
come, as come it must, for Sir Wilfrid Laurier to lay aside Che burden
of responsibility that ho has I'm- bo
long borne as First Citizen of the
fast-growing, Diiiiiin ion.
i .- pro\ inclal career Premier
McBride lias shown himself iudis-
putably a leader. He has shown
himself above the tricks and m
fuges of petty politics. He has shown
himself possessed of "the hand of
Iron within Hi" ■ -■!, et. glove." Ho
has shown himsell as scornful ui the
threats of self-seeking politicians of
his own party as of the >■
of his opponents, and disposed to in
emergencies Invariably adopt the
simplest and most honorable policy—
place bis position squarely before the
people and leave himself in their
hands. As a result he Is not only
Premier of British Columbia and unquestionably and undeniably the
country's strongest man, but he has
)
held the premlerhsip much longer
than did any of his predecessors in
office.
The local Premier's course in the
reception and welcome of the federal Prime Minister, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, on the occasion of the latter's
visit to British Columbia last August
was typical of the man and host. It
scorned the pettiness of party political strife and was alike marked by
completeness, dignity ande inflnit
tact and good taste. It afforded the
Eastern journalists who accompanied
Sir Wilfrid, an opportunity to study
the new star in the sky, who, as one
or their number expressed it, "had
hypnotized British Columbia." And,
having marked him, well, they came
to the conclusion that Premier McBride is not "a politician par excellence," as the machine men admiringly describe him, but just a
sound, strong-hearted, resourceful,
optimistic, through-and-through Canadian, who finds his mission in life
the employment of bis admitted genius in leadership toward the progressive development of his native
province and his native land. Such
men are rare. Yet every Anglo-
Saxon nation breeds them upon occasion. The perpetuation of them is
all essential to the redemption of national government from its occasional
lapses into torpor and degeneracy.

PEACE RIVER LANDS
Province Throws Open Its Domain to
Settlers—A Dominion Reserve
Owing to numerous inquiries regarding the homesteadlng of lands in
I he Dominion Government's reserve
of 3,500,000 acres in the Peace river
district of British Columbia, the secretary of the Bureau of Provincial
Information communicated with Ottawa and has received the following reply—
"As no sub-division surveys have
yet been completed in this block, no
part of It is available at the present
time for homestead entry."
Adjoining the Dominion Government reserve, to the west, the Provincial Government has set apart a
block of four million, five hundred
thousand acres for the benefit of actual settlers. Land in this reserve
can only be secured by pre-emption.
It is not surveyed, but any bona fide
settler may stake and take possession
of 160 acres, on condition that he
lives upon and improves his land.
His interest is recognized from the
day he records his pre-emption and
after two years' residence he may secure a crown grant, on payment of
$1 per acre ($100) or be may pay
one quarter of that sum and the
balance in three installments.
A few e\en rgs ago a large meeting • f •<"'r»nch Canadians was held,
when Olier Besner was elected president jf he club. The election of
the other officers was postp njd until
a future date. Mr. Besner was the
evident i-i e'ce of the meeting and
ot. trs nominate retired from the
field, when he was elected by acclamation.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
WORTHY RECORD
OF WM. MANSON
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 the G. T. P.
in his endeavor to ascertain whether certain reductions should be
made by the company. This in ao
manner deterred him from standing
out against a reduction and bis
course should appeal strongly to all
labor men.
This was in the spring of 1909
after the Provincial Government bad
passed the G. T. P, act through the
Ii "; lature, under which the company was to pay the current rate of
wages,
The finding of Mr. Manson In the
dispute which followed the reduction In pay was against the reduc-
tloi . Following this action of. his,
.1. D, McNiven, the fair ■.•■age 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 the standpoint of the people of tills province, however, if our
workmen on work of this kind for
which tbe governments, both Dominion and Provincial, are so much responsible, cannot secure a living rate
of wages, then there is something
wrung and if the railways cannot be
built,and pay fair wages they should
nut be built al all; and with that in
view I have "ever fell it my duty
acting' on behalf of the government,
lo encourage the payment of wages
..t too low II rate."
Mr. Manson was then government
igent. It could not be said he had
any political ends to serve at the
. [me, l le stood out for a fair wage
being paid the nun and won out for
[hem.
His action is characteristic of the
man. Without ostentation, lie duos
what he believes is lo the Interests
'i1'  the public  without  appealing to
'    clap-trap.

The charge against F. Smith of
having sold liquor Iwithout a license
was concluded this morning when
Magistrate Carss dismissed the case.
Two witnesses for the defense
were put in by W. E. Fisher for the
accused, this morning. They both
testified that lite man came in very
much intoxicated but they saw no
Liquor served him, although they
were in the room all the time.
Mr. Fisher felt that in view of the
fact that the man was not In a condition to say positively where lie got
file liquor there should be a dismissal.
The magistrate agreed with this
view.
Alex Manson, for the prosecution,
held that there was t lie positive evidence of tlie man that lie got the
liquor there, Lo dismiss the case "was
going some."
The magistrate dismissed the case
urn' took Mi. Manson to task f r
using such language as he did, especially In say it. "was going some."
Mr. Manscn held that It was an expression used very frequently in the
present day.
"Not   in   court,"   said   the   magis-
stand by that arrangement. If it
were not to be kept out, however,
then there should be the fullest discussion and be was prepared for that.
He had already stated his position on
that point. He would be prepared
if a settlement was not reached before the end of the present term to
proposed just what the present council endorsed.
To have inaugurated a sewer policy would have meant the cutting off
of the street work. This, he felt
should not be done, but the council
would next year do it.
As  to  the  matter  of  taxation  he
continue negotiations and when a fa- i asked how, if G. T. P. assessment had

would submit it to the people for
approval.

He had been represented as saying
that lie would go after the G. T. P.

would have been impossible. He advanced the argument that the Bank

two conimisioncrs, Mayor Stork and
Aid. Mobley, met in the city hall
where adjournment! was taken until
Saturday.
Mayor Stork asked if the minutes
of the last meeting should be read,
but was informed by Aid. .Mobley
that tills could nol be done as Mr.

had, however, after seeing the sergeant, without knowing nf the may-

Sergeant Regan said there was absolutely no truth in the charges. He
had seen Mr, Stephens who said hi
expected word from his partner, Mr.
Halsey on the Camosun. He would
know then when .\li>. Halsey was
coming hack. Sergeanl Regan said
he felt that it would be better to
postpone tlie investigation until there
was a chance to know whether Mr.
Halsey, the third commissioner,
would be hack.

a lawyer should be engaged.    He did
>t. wish to have one unless the other
side  had  one.

He doubted very much that Mr.
Manson could float his bonds so that
they would materialize at difficult
nines, in the matter of 20 year
bonds as compared with 40 you
bonds, he felt that the short time was
the better as there was less interest
to pay. The city would' be rich
enough in twenty years to never feel

said Aid. Mobley, referring to the
police administration and the criticisms on that score. He admitted

but If elected he would see that tbe

it was, because he would have the

ends if it would not have been better
for the provincial government to
have looKed to his.
Mr. Morrissey said that they must
remember that in James H. Bacon
the G. T. P. had had an able diplomat. He had pulled that through
for the G. T. P.
Two questions were banded to the
chairman for Aid. Pattullo to answer. One had to do with the eight-
hour day. Aid. Pattullo argued that
he was in favor of the eight-hour day
but on further heckling said that if it
was understood that this should
mean that a man could not work
longer than eight hours if he wanted
tu, he was opposed to it.
The other question read, "Have
you a Chinese in your employ in your
household?"
Aid. Pattullo said that, he was
ready to answer that, but he wanted
the man who asked it to come on the
platform,
The challenge was accepted with
alacrity and the questioner took his
place alongside of the alderman.
Aid. Pattullo replied—
"I certainly have."
"You ought to be ashamed of it,"
came the cry from the audience.
".Seven months ago 1 told you
why," said  AM.  Pattullo.
"It's cheaper," was the greeting
from the audience, lo which Aid.
Pattullo replied—

employ him until he could get a wo-

loudest  of  applause.     He   felt   that
aa a football. Then they found a
better ' eentlment arising. Mayor
Stork found that this would damn
them rather than help them and it
was decided to leave It alone.
Politics Introduced
As to the charge of this campaign
being political, Mr. Newton asked of
tbe other side had if It had not introduced it. Did not Aid. Pattullo
and others try a few weeks ago to
buy the Empire and make it a Grit
organ. They did bamboozle the Empire but they could not buy it. Then
they went and bought the Optimist
(laughter).
When Aid. Pattullo said that Aid.
Smith was the guilty party with re-
tre best man for the position. If
elected he would pursue an even
tenor as he did last year. He would
continue to support the cause of
labor as In the past. Aid. Pattnllo
had criticised him for delaying the
electric lighting. If he was to
blame for it, so were Aid. Mobley
and Aid. Lynch, who were also on
the committee. They had worked in
harmony. Aid. Pattullo said that he
and Aid. Mobley were the only two
men in Prince Rupert to handle its
business. He said so in a public
meeting. It was an insult to the
people of Prince Rupert and he believed the people would so take it.
It was a case of audacity for him to
spect to the electric light delay, he j make such a statement.
fell   that  he  was  stating  what   he
knew was untrue.
Aid. Pattullo came forward and
demanded to be heard, but amidst
cries of sit down from the audience
and the expostulation of.the chairman that the meeting should be con-
dui led in an orderly way, Aid. Pattullo took his neat again.
When the electric light question
was before the council he inferred
from the reports of tbe papers that
Aid, Pattullo did not lake kindly to
the decision that the city was to Install a plant Of its own.
Swelled Heads
The council was returned last
May In such a hearty manner that
their heads began to swell. They
complained that they were being criticised. The mayor then disgraced
the city at a banquet given to the
Pre -• of the Dominion, by statin," that the criticism came from tbe
riff-raff of tho city and the public
- .hi 111 be damned.
Aid. Pattullo had called them
skunks.
\! x Manson, the city solicitor, described the license comniissionsers as
jack   asses.
, after their abuse they posed
s martyrs.
He criticised Aid.  Lynch, because

Dr.  Clayton
Dr. Clayton remarked upon the
tact that Mayor Stork was not running again. He was retiring in favor
of a man also who bad not been recognized as the strongest supporter
of the polic of the last council. He
had only time to touch upon some
of the points owing to the late hour.
Aid. Lynch had told of burning the
midnight, oil at the city hall. He
had gone out past Aid. Lynch's and
lie was forced to the conclusion after
seeing the work in progress there
that he did not do it for nothing.
As to the enforcement of the liquor
bylaw he wanted to know if it took
Aid. Mobley six months to evolve no
legislation, how much would he
evolve in twelve months.

M.   M.   Stephens   denied   being  a
party to Introducing partyism.    He
appreciated  being a member of the
Conservative  association,    however,
rather than be a stockholder in the

Aid.   Pattullo  said   that  the  men

Stork and Aid. Lynch had shown
themselves as going about with chips
on their shoulders.
He had no apologies to offer for
supporting Mayor Stork last year.
He would not have been opposed to
to him now had he lived up to his
promises. Mayor Stork would not
be retiring neither, bad that been tbe
condition.
Aid. Naden should have been the
last to criticise Mr. Manson on the
ground that he was going to be absent from the city for a few weeks
during the year. That apostle of
purity, Aid. Naden, should remember the reward offered while he was
the member for for Greenwood if he
(Aid. Naden) could be found in I In-
riding.
.Aid. Hllditch
Aid. Hllditch said, if elected, he
would try to carr out what he attempted In cany out during the last
term. Mayor stork had not attempted
to cany out the pledge lo have Ihu
work done by the cheapest labor,
Chinese, Montenegrin or anything
else. The system of (lay labor when
tried here had saved the city money.
Aid. Hllditch referred to the fact
that, there was little to criticise Aid.
Mobley on. His work had been represented by the license bylaw
brought in a few days ago, but even
that hie suspected was the work of
the boy lawyer.
He was going to support Mr, Manson for mayor. He has the varied
experience on the coast to qualify
him for the t ffh e.

WARD TWO ENDORSES
WILLIAM MANSON
(Continued From  Page One.)
Why could not the city do
abolishing of the
business
this?
He  favored  th
ward  systems.
lie favored an insurance system
for the workmen. He wanted to
amend the provincial statutes so as
to lake away the power of the provincial government, to appoint members of the commissioners. He favored the Initiative and referendum
and the recall.
The cry of a white Prince Rupert
made him laugh. He referred to
members of a club in the city crying
for this and yet employing Orientals
in the club. The Chinamen were all
right as long as they competed In
the labor market, according to those
men. But when these competed in
business, they wanted the labor men
to help to get them out.
He was in favor of giving the
working men who were residents
here a chance to get what was going.
After that let others come along.
He took objection to Aid. Hil-
ditch as to the wages he was reported to have paid. He also heard
that he had broken the rules of the
union by working over hours.
Aid. Pattullo
Aid. Pattullo felt that Mr. Manson
had been complimented by Mr. Man-
son in referring to the fact that everything possible wash started. As
to the cutting down of tbe rate for
telephones he felt that this would
be done. In the sewer matter he
would not favor any scheme which
would not include sewers in sections
5, tl and  7.
On the day labor question, Aid.
Pattullo said he had never posed as
the champion of the working man.
He believed this year that there
were works coming which would allow of carrying out work by the day
labor system.
In closing, be objected to the
editor of the Empire stating as he
did the other .evening that he (Aid.
Pattullo) stated what was not true
and that he knew it to be untrue.
"He would say that if the council
had banded out $10 or $15 a day advertising to the Empire he would
have been boosting for the council
today."
S. M. Newton
S.   M.   Newton   was   greeted   with I
loud applause,    lie referred to Aid. I
Pattulo as the one who was known
as "the great I am and the only one
fit  to  govern   Prince   Rupert."     He
was the greatest wind bag, the greatest bundle of pomposity.    Objections
being  raised  from  the  audience as
to the personalities, the speaker said
that when he was attacked as he had
been by Aid. Pattullo he wished to
defend himself.
As to the labor question he had
heard complaints made by citizens
that laborers came in on the boats
and got tbe work while residents did
not get it.
Aid. Pattullo had been a practical
dictator in the council. If the mayor
went away he had all the easier
jobs in  his dictatorship.
He was not a knocker of the City
of Prince Rupert. As to Ihe charges
that he wanted to get. a large amount
of printing he would describe it as
an infamous lie. lie bad never asked
for any printing.
The great bulk of the citizens'
who paid into the local telephone
company were sincere in holding tbe
telephone for the City of Prince Rupert, but be did not believe Aid. Pattullo was one of them.
Mr. Newton then proceeded to
deal With the whole history of the
telephone matter from his standpoint. Interruptions were very frequent and a rather free discussion
resulted, The denial was made from I
the firm of Mi Caffey & Gibbons that
tin- petition in I'm in- ni tie- telephone

which asked for peace, and harmony
among the newspapers and a general
move for the advancing of Prince
Rupert.
An Explanation
Later, at the close of the meeting,
Mr. Cowper, editor of the Optimist,
was given an opportunity to explain
when he stated that he had not been
interfered with in the editorial utterances of the paper. He was given an
absolutely free hand and he alone
was  responsible  for   what   was said.
Mr. Newton contended that permanent improvements were wanted
In the outlying sections as well as in
section 1. Now, Aid. Pattullo and
Aid. Lynch proposed to spend nearly
$200,000 on sewers outside. They
wanted votes now. Up to this time
Ihe money was being expended on
Second avenue. Mr. Manson offered
you this, but not as a bribe. He advised them to take Mr. Manson to
do the work. Mr. Manson favored
allowing the people to vote upon this
expenditure.
Aid. Hllditch
Aid. Hllditch referred to the fact
that he had been endorsed by the
labor ticket last May. He had favored day labor. He was not strong
enough on the council to enforce that
method of work. The contract system was adopted. Later day labor
had been tried to some extent and
had worked well.    He explained the

W. S, BENSON RETIRES
W. S. Benson, who was expected to have been a candidate
In the coming municipal elec-
toin, has decided to retire from
the field. He does so owing to
business matters which he finds
now would interfere with him in
the position of alderman. It
was with reluctance that he consented to run in the first instance, owing to the fact that
there was danger of a turn in
his business affairs that might
necessitate his absence for considerable time. He has received
information that confirms his
fears along this line and has retired.
In retiring Mr. Benson wishes
it to be understood that he still
endorses the stand taken by
Wiliam Manson and is prepared
to support him and his platform.

"vitch" matter which he said had

He bad found that on the pay roll
there were out of the sixty names,
probably only about three or four
whose names did not end in "vitch."
This got into the council. A change
was made and now hardly any man's
name ended in "vitch." When tbe
men were needed they were found.
He did not desire to draw lines of
distinction, but he stood for a wliite
Prince Rupert which meant that any
man who was prepared to bring bis
wife and family in should be given
the opportunity of earning a living.
Local Improvement
The local improvement-system was
not adapted to such a work as $360,-
000 in one scheme. The majority of
the council favored that system on
the score of expediency. They said
that the citizens wanted a pay roll
and wanted the work done. While
he opposed the system, preferring
the doing of it out of general revenue. When he failed to have it done
this way, he felt that he must fall in
line and as a minority assist the majority In carrying it out well.
When the Bank of Montreal cut
off the money, he tried to get the
area curtailed. The bank came
through with the money and he had

Personal Matti t -
'I'n Mr. Montgomery .- quest Ion
Mr,   Hllditch  said  that  lie    did     not
think that Mr. Montgomery was
rightly informed. He was glad it
came up so that he could meet it.
He said that be never made out a
pay cheque to the best of his knowledge for 37 V2 cents a day when 40
cents was the current rate.
As to not paying overtime, the
charge was true, but there was an ex.
planation. This dated back to the
time when there was trouble on between the carpenters and the Builders' Exchange. He (Aid. Hildiich)
had never intended to become a contractor. He bad been forced into it
when the best carpenters were leaving th city. He had in the open market got a contract to put up a three-
story building. The roof had to be
on in three weeks. He went to the
carpenters and union and asked them
if they would work without charging
overtime until the roof was on and
only until then. They at once agreed
to do it and added Uhey would work
for nothing if necessary (applause,
and cries of "that's right").
On a question being asked as to
his treatment of a man who got hurt,
Aid. Hllditch stated that he had got
insurance placed with the Werck
Realty company bo cover his men.
It was not until the man got better,
after four weeks' time that he learned that nothing was paid by that
company for tlbe first two weeks.
He had opposed the city dealing with
that company as a result and the
doctor wlho waited upon the man,
Dr. McNeil, regarded the treatment
as so shabby by the company that he
offered to cut his fee for his services
in half.
His greatest objection to the present council was the attempt of them
to work machine politics. When any
matter came up involving expenditure, Aid. Pattullo was in the habit
of moving to refer it to the finance
committee. If it suited Aid. Pattullo, tbe monew was found; if not, it
was reported the money is not available. He gave an instance with respect to the printing of the building
bylaw.
Aid. Hilditch then took up the
subject of the license regulations and
bis stand on this. He said that after
searching the record of tbe mayor,
Aid. Smith and Aid. Merryfield, as
license commissioners, he felt convinced that there was no risk in
leaving the affairs to them.
Their administration of the license
gran ting  nad   been   above  reproach.
Seeing the mess that the police
commissioners (Mr. Halsey had been
away most of the time) had made of
the administration of their department and comparing it with the license commissioner's work, he" was
well satisfied with the present system, regarding the license administration.
Eight-Hour Day
To the eight-hour day, Aid. Hilditch gave some attention. He stated
that the street committee thought
they had a clause in the original contracts to prevent men being obliged
to work longer than 8 hours a day.
It was found that it was not binding
and the city solicitors who were supposed to have prepared a binding
clause told them that the contractors
were within their rights. Aid. Hilditch said the mayor stated he had
fixed it all right. Aid. Hilditch said
he then asked the mayor if he had
arranged that the men who were dismissed should be taken back. The
mayor said no he had not thought
of that.'
The streets committee then saw
that a clause that was binding was
put in. Aid. Pattullo had taken the
credit for this himself at a meeting.
He had done nothing more than vote
for it.
An explanation by Alex Manson,
city solicitor, was made when he
gave credit lo Aid. Illldltrh for stating the fads fairly, Aid. Hilditdh
sustaining his point that the amending clans,, was given the solicitors to
insert.
As to Aid.  Pattullo's alleed financial policy, Aid  Hllditch said that the
course was outlined by the represen-
es ui' the hank     lie    aid    not
