London, Dec. 6.—Joseph Martin
has yvon in the triangular contest in
East St. Pancras, London. Mr. Jacobs
the suffragette candidate, received
only twenty-two  votes.
Mr. Joseph Martin, so well known
In British Columbia, where he was
formerly prime minister for a snort
term, had a much hotter fight in East
St. Pancras, London, in the present
British elections (ban he had in January last. He had two opponents,
Mr. Hopkins, Unionist, a wealthy
business man, who had been quietly
working in'the constituency for some
time past, and Mr. Isaac Jacobs, barrister, who is standing as a women's
suffrage advocate.
The constituency was invaded
by the militant suffragettes, whose
motto is "Turn out this miscreant]
ministry." They made great use of
Mr. Martin's own speech in the Com-j
mons, in which lie said he had lost
all confidence in Mr, Asquith. Mr.
Hopkins, in a local election leaflet,
called Mr. Martin "a dumped M.P.,"
as he comes from another country.
"Like all dumped goods," said Mr,
Hopkins, ".Mr. Martin is not a very
serviceable article. Since he was
elected he had only voted in fifty-
three divisions out of 155, about one-
third of the work he was elected to
do."

(Special lo The Journal)
London,     Dec.     ti. — Sir     George
Doughty has been elected in Grimsby
as Unionist supporter.    He was defeated last election.
It must be admitted that in point
I of real spectacular work in elections
the Old Land, leads the way. The appeal to the electorate there means a
battle royal and the present campaign is no exception to the rule.
An instance of the intense feeling
that it is creating is afforded in the
campaign in Grimsby, which resulted
in tiie return of Sir George Doughty,
who recently visited Prince Rupert
to investigate the fishing resources
here, and who will undoubtedly become financially interested in that industry here.
Sir George  is  a   Unionist.     While

Subject Comes Up for Discussion Again
at City Council
Meeting.
Owner of   Building  Is   Placed  In  n
Very Awkward Position in
Matter
How to deal witli stables in the
city is now becoming a grievous question Willi tiie city council. The flrst
serious trouble in this respect arose
some weeks ago in connection with
a stable being put up for the Pony
Express. Ever since that date there
is sure to be a letter from residents
concerned asking for action in the
matter on the ground that the siablo
is near dwellings.
Last evening to. J. Green wrcte
that the stable was occupii d. It was
proposed to refer il to the health
committee to investigate, hut Aid.
Hilditch thought such a course would
hardly afford much satisfaction.
The owner of the stable was present and asked to give an explanation.
He said the owner of the lot had got
permission to build and In consequence he (the speaker) had got the
lumber and started work. He had
been stopped by the sanitary officer
but again told he could go ahead and
had completed the stable only to be
told he could not use it.
Aid. Hilditch said there was little
to Investigate. He did not know
where the health officer got his authority for authorizing the work to
be gone on with. Tho building inspector had already explained bis position. The committee could do nothing except stand by the bylaw.
Aid. Mobley did not know that the
building inspector could refuse a
building permit. It might be that it
would not be permissabie to occupy
the building after it was built but the
inspector could hardly refuse it.
His worship said that it appeared
that the mistake was on the part of
the sanitary officer, that is, if any
mistake had been made.
It was explained by some members
of the council that if an officer of the
council made a mistake the council
would have to stand by it.
Sanitary Inspector McFarlane explained liis position. it had been
pointed out to him that he could not
prevent the stable being erected, lie
hud Informed the owner of the stable
acting on the Instructions of Aid.
Barrow thai while he could nol prevent the stable being erected, he
could wh ■!! it was erected take action.
It. was finally decided to have Hie
matter again Investigated by the
committee.

NEW AWARD
Change Made in Contractor Who Will
Construct Road on Eighth Ave.
Through an error of the streets
committee In tabulating the prices to
be paid for the work, the mistake
was made of awarding the cpntract
for the planking of Eighth avenue
to the wrong contractor in the flrst
instance. The error was rectified last
evening by the adoption of a report
from the streets committee recommending that the award be made to
A. Johnson & Co. Instead of J. A.
Gillis.
Aid. Mobley wished to know if Mr.
Glllls had been notified that he had
been awarded  the contract.
An answer In the negative having
been given It was decided to adopt
the committee's report and award
the contract to Mr. Johnson.

(Special to The Journal)
Victoria, Dec. 6.—The salvage
work on the steamer Northwestern,
ashore on San Juan Island near here,
is progressing well, but it will be
several days before the vessel Is refloated. Divers are patching the bot-
ton of the steamer and a temporary
bow is being built.
The Northwestern is operated by
tiie Alaska Steamship Company.
Although there is about thirteen
feet of water in the forward hold, it
is not thought that the cargo is damaged, as the 300 tons of freight were
stored aft. The twenty-six passengers
who were aboard the steamship at
the time of the accident, were taken
abroad the Canadian Pacific steamer
Tees, which answered the signals of
distress.
The Northwestern was northbound
from Seattle and heading for Nanaimo for cargo coal, when she was
caught in a strong tide rip and carried on the rocks.

Victoria, Dec. 6.—The steamer
Henriette, of the G.T.P., has been
chartered by the Canadian Pacific
Fishery company, controlled by Mackenzie & Mann, to make several trips
to Naden harbor, Virago Sound, witli
men and material for the construction of a whaling slation there which
is to be tiie largest of the company's
chain of stations.
The station at Naden harbor was
announced through the columns of
the Journal some weeks ago. The
situation is regarded as an ideal one
for the purposes intended, as whales
are plentiful In that vicinity.

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
THE NAVAL POLICY
R.
L. Borden Explains the Coarse He
Would Pursue on This
Question.
THE NEW MEMBER
Alexander Lucas Has Been in Politics
For a Long Time
He Would Take Expert Advice And
Then Appeal to Country to
Bear its Share
Frankly and clearly Mr. R. L. Bor-'
den in the debate on the address, set
forth in the House of Commons the
policy of the Conservative party on
the naval question. The speech of
the leader was listened to with close
attention and the enthusiasm which
Its delivery evoked was ample evidence that it expressed the attitude
of his followers upon the momentous
issue with which it dealt. There was
no uncertain sound In Mr. Borden's
declaration of his views. By no contortion of the text can his speech be
construed as an utterance fashioned
to mean one thing in one section of
the country and then convey a different impression in another.
It set forth a policy for Canada
as a whole as a component part of
the British empire, thus "It may fairly be asked what we would do if we
were in power today with regard to
a great question of this kind. So far
as I am concerned, it seems to me
that our plain course and duty would
be this—the government of this
country is able to understand and
know, if It takes the proper action
for that purpose, whether the conditions which face the empire at this
time in respect of naval defence are
grave or not. If we were in power we
would endeavor to find that out—to
get a plain unvarnished answer to
that question, and if that question
based upon a report of the government of the Mother Country and of
the naval experts of the admiralty
were such—and I think it would be
such—as to demand Instant and effective 'action by this country, then
I would appeal to parliament for immediate and effective aid. And if
parliament did not give immediate
and effective aid I would appeal to
the people of this country.
A Permanent Policy
"Then, as to a permanent policy, 1
think the people have a right to be
asked about that. I think the question of Canada's co-operation upon a
permanent basis in imperial defence
involves a very large and wide consideration. If Canada and the other
dominions of the empire are to take
their part as nations of this empire
in the defence of the empire as a
whole, shall It be that we contributing to that defence of the whole empire shall have absolutely as citizens
of this country no voice whatever in
tiie councils of the empire relating
to the choice of peace and wai
throughout the empire? I do not'
think that would be a tolerable condition. I do not think the people ot
Canada would for one moment sub-
mil to such a condition. Should the
members of this house representing
220 constituencies of this country
from the Atlantic to the Pacific no
one of them have the same voice with
regard to these enormous Imperial
issues that humble tax-payers in the
British Isles have at this moment?
It does not seem to me that a condition of the kind would stand for the
Integrity of the empire, for the closer
co-operation of the empire and I for
one think that these issues will have
to be taken into consideration and a
permanent policy would have to be
worked out. And when that permanent policy had been worked out and
explained to the people of Canada, to
every citizen in this country, then
I would say it would be right for any
government to go to the people of
Canada to get them to pronounce
their mandate and their disapproval
or approval of that policy."
Amendment to Address
In substitution for Air. Monk's
amendment, Mr. Borden moved the
following, which was defeated by the
Government party: —
"We beg to assure your excellency
of the unalterable attachment and
devotion of the people of Canada to
the British crown nnd of their desire
and intention to fulfill all just re-
sponsibiltles devolving upon this
country as one of the nations of the
empire. We desire, however, to express our regret that your excellency's gracious speech gives no indication whatever of any Intention on
the part of your excellency's advisers to consult the people of Canada."

Mr. Alexander Lucas, who was
elected by acclamation for the provincial constituency of Yale, flrst entered politics in 1831, at the age of
29, and in 1894 distinguished himself by defeating Hon. A. L. Sifton,
now premier of Alberta. The occasion was In a three-cornered contest
in Calgary West for a seat in the old
legislative assembly of the Northwest
territories. He himself was defeated
by one vote In the recount by Mr.
Oswald Critchley, the other conservative In the field.
Mr. Lucas was born near the village of Warwick, Ontario, on September 2, 1852, and his first political
fight was in opposing Hon. Peter Graham for the federal seat of East
Lambton, when he was beaten by a
small majority. In 1885 he came
west to Calgary, where he was once
president of the board of trade,
thrice alderman and twice mayor. In
1897 he moved on to Britisli Columbia.- He was provincial organizer for
the Conservative party, and later
provincial land assessor. He resigned from the latter office about a year
ago to assume the active management of his farm at Waleach, six
miles east of Agassiz. F. G. T. and E.
A. Lucas, comprising the legal firm
of Lucas & Lucas in Vancouver, are
sons of the new member.

UNICORN CARIBOU
Strange Herd of Animals Hake Queen
Charlotte Islands
Habitat.
Only One Horn Adorns the Heads of
Those Taken by Indians in Part
of District
That the wilds of Graham Island
in the vicinity of Virago Sound are,
or have been from time immemorial
the habitat of the nearest approach
to the fabled unicorn that is known
to naturalists, is the conclusion forced home by Inspection of the only
two specimens yet secured of the
much-discussed Queen Charlotte caribou, one of which has now been well
mounted by Curator Kermode of the
British Columbia Museum, which institution the rate specimens are to
adorn.
How the caribou reached the
Queen Charlottes is one of nature's
secrets, but it is presumed that they
have been there since the island
formed part of the mainland—now
30 miles away—and have steadily
deteriorated through in-breeding, until today the few survivors can scarce
be recognized as of the same species
as   tiie   mainland   caribou.
The three animals in all secured
for the museum were killed by Indians three years ago, and very badly preserved. Expert attention has
done wonders with them, however,
and the first mounted specimen
shows an animal of lightest fawn
about the size of an average mule
deer weighing perhaps in life 225
pounds. It has no plough, as have
all the heads of the other members
of the caribou family, and it is especially curious that two-thirds of the
heads secured have but a single horn
for each animal, growing on the right
side of the head, while on the left
side there is the merest lump at the
natural growing point. Each of the
museum specimens has been fully
matured, even aged, as evidenced by
the wellworn or lost teeth.

The development of the Graham
Island collieries by a company with
headquarters in Vancouver seems
now to have reached a stage where
shipping may soon be expected to
follow. The Zafiro, formerly a coal
carrier for the United States navy,
has been purchased by Messrs. Gibbs
<fc Goldberg, of Vancouver, for the
purpose,
The purchasers of the steamer
which aided in the capture of Manila
from the Spaniards, will utilize the
Zafiro for carrying passengers and
coal between the Queen Charlotte
Islands and the mainland. The new
owners are connected with a syndicate being incorporated with $1,000,-
000 capital to work the Graham Island collieries. Besides having a
large passenger accommodation, the
Zafiro is capable of handling some
2,000 tons of coal.
She is a British vessel and was
for many years operated between
Manila and Hongkong. The steamer
was owned by the, Chiua & Manila
Steamship Company at the outbreak
of the Spanish-American war, and
was lying at Hongkong in company
with the steamer Nangsham, with a
cargo of coal.
Being in dire need of coal, Admiral
Dewey purchased the two vessels
with their cargoes at a cost of $1,-
000,000. After the war the Zafiro
was sent to the navy yard at Bremerton, and there rusted until fifteen
months ago, when she was purchased by the Chicago Junk' Company for
$3,300, at public auction. It is reported that the steamship was sold to
her present owners for a figure between $15,000 and $20,000.
Although used in the American
navy, the Zafiro never changed her
British register. The owners of the
Zafiro state that the steamer will be
placed in drydock for repairs.
FISHERIES REPORT
Value of the Industry to Canada Represents Nearly $30,000,000
Prince Rupert Branch—
F. S. LONG,       Manager.
The annual report of the fisheries
department, as tabled in the Commons, shows that the total value of
all kinds of fish and fish products
taken by Canadian fishermen during
the last fiscal year was $20,629,169.
This sum constitutes a record, being
$4,178,084 ahead of 1908, and $149,-
607, better than the total of 1905,
which was the previous record.
The great increase in value is due
to increased catches in the western
provinces, Britisli Columbia alone
contributing nearly four millions of
the increase.
The total number of men directly
engaged in the work of the fisheries
throughout Canada last year was 90,-
357.
In commenting on the action of the
department taken two years ago to
assist fishermen on the Atlantic and
Pacific coasts in transporting fresh
fish to the inland provinces by means
of special fast freight services and
government assistance in the way OJ
meeting the express charges, the report says: "Before the question of
improved facilities was taken up by
the department the interior Canadian
markets were practically altogether
supplied from the United States. Of
course there are some kinds of fish
not caught off the Canadian coasts,
and for which, there is a certain demand at hotels, etc., which continue,
and no doubt will continue, to be
brought into Canada; but that the
trade In staple food fish, such as cod,
haddock, halibut, salmon, etc., which
were previously obtained from the
United States,.has been practically altogether replaced by Canadian fish, Is
quite obvious.
"In 1906" the imports of fresh fish
from the United States into Ontario
and Quebec was 1,968,572 pounds,
In 1908 such importation had fallen
off to 1,180,543 pounds, while during
the year which ended on March 31,
1910, such shipments, excluding oysters in the shell and lobsters, of
which there were 2,115 barrels of
the former and 2fi barrels of the latter, had fallen off to but 761,569
pounds.
"Not only had Importations of
fresh fish from Hi? United States
been practically suplsnted, but th •
consumption of such wholesome and
n li'tious food, drawn from Canadian sources is rapidly increasing."

ILL-ADVISED  COl USE
The action of the Chief of Police
of tliis city in refusing a newspaper
man admission to the police court is
an action on his part that is open to
the most severe condemnation. Aparf
altogether from the causes wliich
might have actuated his action, this
move on his pan was most ill-advised, it was little short of presumption
on the part of the chief to undertake
to shul the doors of an open court to
any member of the press purely on
his own whim.
In the lisht against crime newspapers have played an important part
in conjunction with the police authorities. Usually the best of feeling
exists between the representatives
of the police forces and the news-
gatherers. Confidences are always
respected by the best of newspapermen and seldom are these confidences
violated. Moreover newspapermen
have responsibilities to the public
and are not surely to ask police officers to think for them.
The chief is entitled to hold whatever opinion he may like with respect to individual newspapermen.
When he presumes to close the doors
of a court to any member of the press
he is taking a course that It is well
for him that police authorities of the
city are leniently inclined. We have
'no quarrel with Chief McCarvel on
personal grounds. We object very
seriously to his conduct in the instance referred to, although it does
not affect The Journal itself.

DRAMATIC   ELECTION
(Continued from Page One)
(laughter) by a combination of specials and motor cars is to arrive at
midnight. What I am afraid will add
to the inconvenience of his journey is
that he is to be supplied at intervals
with fragments of my speech (more
laughter) In order that he may be
happily prepared with an answer by
.the time the clock strikes polling day
(laughter) which will see the return
of my friend Sir George Doughty
(loud cheers). I presume that about
this moment (Mr. Balfour looked at
his watch) he is about to reach, Retford. (Laughter.) I now propose to
ask him (loud laughter) a particular
question. How does he think our
parliamentary system, at this moment, is working or is likely to work
under his plan with regard to home
rule?    (Cheers.)
"We thought a proper response to
our statement was that our opponents -would refer Home Rule to the
people. (Cheers.) I made that challenge at Albert Hall, I repeated It,
last night, at Reading. Today I have
got my answer. It is clear, explicit,
honorable, straightforward, but utterly unsatisfactory. (Loud cheers.)
Are we, alone among all the nations
of the world, we who are the authors
and fathers of constitutional freedom
and democratic liberty, to cut our
throats in the fact of the whole
world (cries of 'No!') and admit, the
bankruptcy of free institutions? You
talk of bedlam and dodges. You talk
of destroying parliamentary institutions. It. appears to me the wild men
who control, but I hope will not long
control (cheers), the affairs of this
country, are in a fair way to destroy
all that is valuable and essential,
both in our parliamentary system
and constitution."
Mr. Balfour passionately declared
thai Home Rule never figured in the
Radical election address. The Radicals never explained their speeches
or knew what wns meanl by Home
Rule. Yel if the government were
returned they would claim that it
was a mandate for Home Rule. "It Is
outrageous," ho declared.
FAVOK THE SCOTT ACT
Mass Meeting Held in the Bmpret
Theatre
On Sunday evening in the Empress
theatre, after the close of the services
in the churches, a mass meeting was
held in Hie interests of those who
favor the passage of the Scott Act.
D. McLeod presided, and in a short
address admonished all to take an
interest in the campaign on behalf of
their fellow men.
The speakers were Dr. Kergin,, H.
V. McRae, to. E. Williams. W. 11.
Montgomery, and Dr. .McLeod, the
pastor of the Baptist church. Very
different aspects of the case for tho
Scon Act were presented. The theatre was well tilled.
Personals
.Mr. Hagen, who is to take charge
of the Indian school at Port Simpson, is in the south. He will return
with Mrs. Hagen in a few days.

Mr. Andrew George has returned
to the city after a few weeks' visit
to his home in Victoria and to various other cities of the south.
* *    *
Mr. Spencer, a well known contractor in Vancouver, paid a visit to
Prince Rupert last week. He accompanied Major Morris of the Salvation Army on his trip here, and
took occasion to look over the new
city.
The Epworth League tomorrow
evening will be under the direction
of the Christion Endeavor department. Messrs. Rowe, Derry and
Hamlin will give short addresses in
discussion of the topic "The Curse
of the Bar." Young men and the
general public are invited.
The curfew bylaw was considered
in committee last evening at some
length. The council will again consider it in committee before passing
it. Under its provisions as now
amended in committee the hour when
children under 14 years of age without a parent or guardian must vacate the streets Is 8.30, from October
to March inclusive, and at 10 o'clock
for the remainder of the year.
Objecting to the publication of information which it was felt would
handicap the police in its efforts to
effect the arrest of a suspected holdup man, Chief McCarvel a few days
ago ordered a reporter of the Empire
from his office where police court is
held. Police Magistrate Carss has
since ordered his court open and the
chief has been forced to allow the
man he objected to to enter.
ARBITRATION ENDS
(Continued from Page One)
William Blakemore, of Victoria, is
in the city He will assist the local
opponents of the Scott Act In a vigorous campaign against the passage of
that measure on December 14. Mr.
Blakemore Is a very fluent speaker
and will likely bo heard on the platform during the campaign.

contended that the land was taken
hold of by speculators who had put
a lownsite on paper to sell it. The
townsite was put on after the right-
of-way went through, and it was on
the basis of the railway building that
the value was given to the lots. It
was a fake townsite proposition, and
Mr. Noble never intended it originally as a townsite property.
Dealing with the question of the
townsite, he showed the plans with
streets and lots laid out between the
railway right-of-way and the water
which ran out 687 feet into navigable
water.
On the question of a cannery, Mr.
Fisher argued that Mr. Noble had not
done anything at, the time he might,
have done it. The order forbidding
any more licenses made it impossible
to use the site, although Mr. Noble
slated he had a great pull with tho
government and was sure of obtaining it.
As far as the cannery site was concerned the building of the railway
did nol take away from Its value. The
cannery could still be bull! there and
would have the advantage of the railway,
Mr, Patmore for the Haysport syndicate, argued thai Haysport foreshore was a part of the harbor of
Port Essington and as sucli it came
within the right of the Dominion
government to control its foreshore.
He contended that the right which
was granted to the syndicate by the
Dominon government was good in
spite of the provincial government
not consenting to it. As far as the
cannery site has been concerned, the
railway had spoiled the chance to
erect it.
The result or the finding of the
Commisisoners will not be made public until one side or the other pays
the costs and takes the award out of
court.

CITADEL IS  OPENED
Salvation    Army   Throw   Their
Bnilding Open to
Worship.
New
Interesting Ceremony Held on Sunday in Connection With the
Event
James of the Anglican church and
the benediction by Rev. Mr. Kerr of
the Presbyterian church.
Major Morris is to remain in the
city until Thursday evening and will
take charge of the services in the
citadel.
FLOURISHING BROTHERHOOD
Baptist  Young People  Have  Strong
Organization
On Sunday afternoon the Salvation
Army opened its new citadel here
which marks the real beginning of its
effective work in the city. The organization has very comfortable
quarters now on Fraser street at the
head of Sixth avenue. The front
part, which is devoted to the general
purposes of the army as a meeting
place, Is capable of seating about 300
persons comfortably. The ceilings
are high, making It airy and cheerful, while abundance of light is afforded.
A very commodious platform has
been placed> at the extreme end of
the hall, while the remainder Is well
provided with chairs, making a most
comfortable place for worship.
In the rear of the building has
been fitted up the living quarters for
the officers in charge of the work
The workmanship throughout is
highly gratifying to the officers of
the army Who speak ln the highest
terms of the contractor, Mr. Morrison.
Yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock
the opening ceremony took place,
Major Morris, of Vancouver, who is
in charge of the work of the Army
In British Columbia and the Yukon,
being present to take charge. William Manson, M.P.P., presided, while
Mayor Stork and Aid. Mobley and
the city clergy all had prominent
places on the platform during the
ceremony.
With the singing of "All Hail the
Power of Jesus' Name" outside the
citadel, the proceedings were opened.
Major Morris followed with prayer,
after which Mrs. Ensign Johnstone
and Lieut. Wright sang a duet.
The honor of hoisting the Salvation Army flag for the first time over
the building fell to Mrs. MorriB.
Mr. Manson was then presented
with a silver key inscribed simply
"William Manson, M.P.P., S.A., Dec.
4, 1910." The presentation was
made by the little daughter or Major
Morris. Mr. Manson followed with
a short address In which he congratulated the Army upon the building
that they had now provided. The
opening of the citadel really marked
the initiation of the Army's work
here, although for some time it had
been carrying on its operations under the able leadership of Ensign
Johnstone. He traced the history of
the Army from the year 1865 when
William Booth organized the Christian mission which 13 years later developed into the Salvation Army.
During its history it had followed the
original aims of Ooneral Booth very
closely and had a very important
place in lifting those who were down
to a better life.
Opening the door with the silver
key he led the way to the interior,
where the programme was continued.
The place was filled to the doors
in a short time, and many found it
impossible to gain admission. Mrs.
Morris sang a solo very acceptably,
and Mrs. Ensign Johnstone and Lieut
Wright also contributed to the musical programme. The Presbyterian
choir attended in a body and rendered a selection to the delight of all.
The address of Major Morris on
the Evolution of the Salvation Army
was listened to with a great deal of
interest. He traced the organization's
history from the earliest limes up to
the present, giving a clear idea of
the work carried out by it under
some of the different departments.
With respect to the local situation,
he explained that the citadel and the
lots on which il stood reprerented an
expenditure of over $13,000. Of this
sum not q'lite $900 bad  been raised
ilANDAKMOR QUALITY
At a regular meeting of the
Brotherhood of the First Baptist
church held last evening the following officers were elected for the first
six months of the new year: Hon.
president, Rev. W. H. McLeod; president, Harrison W. Rogers; vice president, Clarence Swindell; recording
secretary, Wm. N. Reilly; corresponding secretary, Clyde H. A. Rogers; treasurer, R. M. Mcintosh. The
appointment of various committees
such as membership, social, literary
and devotional was left over for the
new executive.
In addition to the election of officers, a great deal of other business
was brought up, chief of which was
the discussion of the debate which Is
to be held between the Presbyterian
and Baptist Young Men's organizations. At a recent meeting of committees from the two clubs it was decided that this should be held Dec. 8,
bate should be held on December 8,
and arrangements were made for j
that date. Since that meeting it has
been decided to postpone the debate
until after Christmas, owing to certain meetings which are to be held
in the near future in the cause of the
Scott Act. The subject "Resolved,
That a Bachelor Tax be Imposed,"
however, will be threshed out by several members of the Baptist Brotherhood at the next meeting on Monday
night.
The matter of joining the worldwide Baraca Union was brought up
and it was decided that the secretary
should forward the necessary amount
and have the name of the Brotherhood enrolled on the list as belonging to  the  Baraca.
Reports were also given by the
conveners of the various committees.
It was found that everything had
been running perfectly and many
new members had been added since
organization. The Sunday Baraca
Bible class has largely Increased, and
quite a number of men are now receiving good Instruction under the
teaching of Rev. W. H. McLeod at
this class on Sunday afternono.
A cordial invitation is extended to
all men of the city to attend both of
these meetings, on Sunday afternoon
at 2.30, and on Monday evening at
8.00.

Licensed liars Retard :• City's Progress—"Dry Tonus" Are the Most
Prosperous — Britisli Columbia
Brail.storm — A Striking Object
Lesson—A Crime Again Humanity
Referring again to an article which
appeared In last Tuesday's issue of a
local paper under the caption "Just
Two Weeks .More," we wish to add
wiili much emphasis that the "Can-
ade Temperance Act" (the Scott Act)
will be passed by the thinking, intelligent voters of Prince Rupert "by
all means" in order that "Prince Rupert shall remain the size it is now,"
and  also   in   order  that  the  city  of
I'rine Rupert may offer to a waiting
world a good, clean, wholesome business city, and may increase in popj-
.ition 100,0 10 in tiie next ten years
j st as .Minneapolis has done in th«
past ten years, because she offers
them a "good place in which to live,"
and in this way Prince Rupert will
assure her business men great and
wonderful "growth in business,
building and manufacturing enterprises just as Minneapolis and Los
Angeles have done.
The business man will say on December 14th in "Just Two Weeks
More," that the Licensed Bar must
go from Prince Rupert, must go utterly, must go never tp return. Why
not? The bar or saloon is the liquor
traffic's method of distribution. For
tin's reason the life of the traffic depends on the bar. The bar has always been without merit and always
will be. It is not necesasry as is
the bakery or meat market, but is a
constant source of misery, disorder
and crime. A bar cheapens property
in its neighborhood and is a menace
to morals and good government. It
harbors criminals, promotes vice and
takes money from men without giving them any thing of value in return. It robs families of happiness,
health and comfort and the society
which it offers is the kind which
drags down but does not uplife. Imagine a father urging his son to
spend his leisure time in a bar because of the benefits it offers in a
social way. The most eminent medical men declare alcohol to be the
most dangerous of al drugs, as it affects those parts of the human organism which when diseased most
completely incapacitate the user for
the daily duties of life. To illustrate
this last point by a concrete example: In trying to indue? the president
of a large manufacturing establishment to withdra whis name from the
petition to the state legislature asking for a temperance measure, lie replied: "I am liable in damages for
the acts of my employees. If one
goes out at noon and eats a free luch
at the corner saloon spending tile
money intended for lunch for beer
and whiskey, the chances are that
he will not be as alert or keen as he
would have been without it. The possibility of accident grows in proportion to the amount of liquor in his
system. If an accident occurs we
must pay; consequently I am going
to protect myself, as a matter of good
business policy, by trying to close
saloons around our factory." (Would
this "intelligent white man, a man of
broad-minded views," consider for
a minute the location of a manufacturing establishment in Prince Rupert under conditions as they exist
today?) No logical argument could
be produced to refute this statement.
The fact that under present employer's liability laws and workmen's
compensation acts employers are held
liable in damages for the acts of their
employees—without regard to the
employees' carelessness or disobedience of express orders^-made It
necessary to reduce all possible risk
of accident, Will the licensed bar
encourage large manufacturers to
locate manufacturing establishments'
In Prince Rupert? The abolition of |
the bar or saloon is the mosl stupen-j
dous economic issue of the hour and
the age. The bar cannot be defended as a moral institution, and it is
likewise without defense In the plan
of economics. The argument of brewers and liquor men that to vote out
bars means confiscation of property
and the turning away from work of
thousands of laborers does not appeal with much force to thlnging
men. There Is not a city or town in
the country which has abolished the
saloon in which the demand for labor
lias been reduced. If the great breweries, distilleries and liquor manufacturers would close their doors tomorrow   there   would   not   be   a   de
crease in the demand for labor. There
would be readjustments in some instances but that would be all.
No  Effect  Here
This cry was raised in Springfield,
Ohio's largest "dry" city, during the
campaign which ended with the closing of saloons. But "dry" Springfield
is furnishing a greater army of men
with work today than ever before in
its history and even now the demand
is not satisfied, while houses are not
being built fast enough to care for
the families of working men who are
flocking  to  that  city.
The brewers and newspapers they
control preach one tiling but the
great business world practices another, apital and labor agree on the
proposition that the liquor traffic is
an enemy of both and they are moving forward with relentless and irresistible force for its overthrow. The
liquor trust may shed hypocritical
tears over the closed breweries, distilleries, saloons and bars, but the
public well knows that in the very
economy of things there is no place
for the bar and It is a waste of men
and  money.
Iliitish Columbia Brainstorm
The campaign in this province for
the "Canada Temperance Act" has
caused the big brewers of Vancouver
and Seattle and the people they control to act like crazy men. Think of
them appealing to the business men
for help. The writer in Tuesday's
paper says: "The only thing that will
give the Scott Act any chance of
passing in this city is indifference tin
the part of the business men." * *
"The people who will eventually have
to foot the bills will be the business
men of the town." * * "it is the
fight of the business men as a whole
and it is up to them to get in and
help things along." This extract gives'
one some idea of the brainstorm
which afflicts this writer. If such
were true then we naturally would
expect the business world to want its
employees to patronize saloons. But
the contrary is true. In both Canadian and American cities where the
people are asked.by the liquor men to
"save the city" business firms and
manufacturers are making it hard
for drinking men to hold their jobs.
Striking Object Lesson
One of the most striking object lessons on the business side of sobriety
comes from St. Louis, Missouri. The
street railway company of that city
employes 4,000 conductors and
motormen. Each of these employees
has received a letter from the company which reads as follows:
"If employees of this company
choose to frequent saloons, either on
or off duty, or attend the races or
other gambling places, rooms or resorts, they are exercising a right
which cannot be denied them, but
they cannot remain in the employ ot
the company. Robert MeCullough,
general manager."
What a farce for the brewers and
their Prince Rupert dupes and tools
to cry to the business world, the
business men of Prince Rupert to
save their business from elimination
ind that same business world threatening the discharge of its employees
if they patronize the bars and the
brewers. Many corporations insist upon total abstinence on the part of
their workmen and in many instances this applies to artenders, who are
refused work In saloons if they drink.
In practically every shop and facory
preference In promotion is given to
total abstainers and everywhere on
the part of railroads, manufactures
and corporations of all kinds a man
who drinks has not an even chance
for work wltn the man who does not
drink. ,
It is n False Cry
If the world of Industry has thus
put the seal of its disapproval on
the liquor traffic, how false the cry
that the liquor business should be
maintained because of the money
invested and the number of men
employed. The laboring men is no
longer hood-winked y the requests of
the brewers to help save the brewery
business. Leaders of organized
labor are making il clear to worklngmen everywhere that il is to their
interest to join the forces which an"
moving for the extinction of the licensed bar. Those labor leaders
truthfully declare thai the bar is
the workingmen's worst enemy and
that it is opposed to those reforms
which organized labor is pledged to
carry out.
Equally as false Is the statement
that "the drinking of loquor is not.
considered a crime by the world at
large."
Crime Against Humanity
From every standpoint the liquor
biisin°ss is met with arguments
which cannot be refuted and which
'■■rand it, not as a business institution
' 'it as a monstrous crime against hu-
anlly.
The liquor business and the llcens.
ed bar are wholly and absolutely indefensible.
Serious Questions for Prince Rupert
Voters
Do we want saloons in Prince Rupert?    If so, why?
Who of us want them, and foi
what?
Is time spent in them which could
be better spent elsewhere?
Is money spent in them which
would do more good spent otherwise?
Is there likely to be gambling in
them?
Is any money worse than wasted
in them?
Do fathers set bad examples there
for their boys?
Do our boys get good habits there
that will make them good men, or
habits that may make them good-for-
nothing men?
Are our wives, mothers and sisters
made happier by having loafing and
drinking places to tempt their husbands, sons and brothers to waste
their time and spend their money in
drinking and loafing instead of being
at home with their families?
Is the saloon a good place to educate the young men who are to be
the husbands of our daughters?
If no money were spent In saloons,
would there not be more good trade
and less bad debts in business, and
more comfort in homes?
Would anybody be hurt or injured
by having these places shut up? If
so, who? And how would they be
hurt?
Would some men be better off today if they had never been in a saloon?
Would some women and children
in Prince Rupert be better fed and
better clothed if their husbands and
fathers had never been in a saloon?
Would some homes in Prince Rupert be happier?
Would anybody who is dead be
alive today?
Would saloon-keepers themselves
and their families be better, happier,
and more useful to some other business?
Do saloon-keepers want to do us
good or to get our money?
Do you like the dictation of the
saloon in politics?
Let us think of these questions
and vote as we think RIGHT, not as
those who only want our money wish
us to vote.

STUDY TUBERCULOSIS
KILTED REGIMENT
Vancouver.—The tartan plaid and
the busbies wil shortly become fashionable In Vancouver, for authorization has bene received for the introduction of the Highland apparel into
local military circles. A communication haa been received from Ottawa
stating that the authorities approve
of the establishment of a Highland
regiment in the terminal city. This
new corps Is to bear the name of
the Seventy-Second Seaforths.
Major A. G. Edward Leckle, who
has seen service on the South African veldt and whose name 1b honored
throughout the military world, will
command the regiment which it Is
proposed shall be made up of eight
companies, thereby emulating the example of the Fifth Royal Highlanders of Montreal. It is expected that
the corps will consist of 350 men exclusive of bandsmen and pipers.
A great deal of Interest is being
evinced ln the promotion of Vancouver's kilted regiment. Lord Strathcona is taking a deep Interest in the
movement, and he has stated his wlsk
that the regiment be formed as
quickly as possible, and that It be
represented at the coronation by a
smel detachment. Recruiting will be
commenced within the next few
weeks.
LIBERAL OFFICERS
Vancouver.—The annual meeting
of the Vancouver Liberal Association
when last year's officers were all reelected, paid a tribute to the late Mr.

Is due Dr. Cross and his staff for the
good results obtained.
Mr. Kitson & Son are pushing the
building for the cold storage plant,
while Mr. Barge is rushing the new

The Indians have taken a large
number of bear, and have a fine
showing of excellent pelts.
The telephone line will soon be
in operation between the wireless
station and Queen Charlotte Cit.
The Skidegate Indians have, during the last tew days, taken three
scow loads of lumber from the local
mill for a new church.
Two young Indians of the Skldegate band own and operate a fine
gasoline launch.
Several more launches are about
to be built by native boat builders for
the people of the village.
The steamer Bruno keeps close to
schedule time, even In bad weather,
and her regular arrivals have come
to be looked upon as one of the features of the place.

commander of the high school cadets
and the Rev. A. H. Sovereign, the

brought by Mr. N. Clark, president
of the South Fort George Townsite
company, Mr. S. S. Taylor, K.C., appeared on Mr. McConnell's behalf. He
pointed out that the magistrate already decided that he did not pass
judgments on the facts in such a
case, and he asked, with the consent
of the prosecution, that the case
might go up to the higher court without further preliminaries. When it
came to trial they would be prepared

W. J. Gage has offered to provide
five scholarships ot $100 each, to be
awarded to the students who make
a special study of tuberculosis at the
Muskota College Sanitarium, Graven-
hurst, Ont.
The object of these scholarships is
for the purpose of extending the interest taken in the study of tuberculosis and of encouraging research
work in this subject.
These scholarships have been offered to the students of the University
of Toronto, and whilst it is not possible to take advantage of this
scheme during the present session,
it is hoped that next year arrangements will be made so that students
may avail themselves of the provisions made and that they will take
an active interest In competing for
the prizes offered. The intention is
that students should go to Graven-
hurst and reside there for a specified
time, in order that they may avail
themselves of the clinical study of
tuberculosis, but owing to the large
number of final students In attendance at the university this year, and
because ot difficulties In the time
table, it was found impossible to
make provision for the arrangement
until next session.

Why the Scott Act Should be Defeated
Anything appearing in this
column under the above head
is published by tbe Press
Committee of the opponents
of the Scott Act and is not intended as representing the
views of this paper.
miii.itinn in Chilliwack
Advides from Chilliwack are to tin
efl ci thai the Scott Act vote at that
point mi the 14th Instant will result
adversely tc those extremists who are
advocating the substitution of tliis
Impractical and discredited theoretical system for the very drastic and
thoroughly workable high license and
strlci regulation law thai Is operating
mosl beneficially throughoul British
Columbia todaj The Prohibitionii ts
of Chilliwack are evidently well financed, for ii is announced on good
authority that they recently offered
"any figure he might like to name"
to the editor of one of the local newspapers for all the space which he
would give to their cause containing
favorable argument. In Chilliwack
the people appear to lie well advised
of the fact that a favorable vote on
the .Scot i Acl proposal is in reality
an unwarranted and surreptitiously
engineered vote of condemnation upon the McBride government and
policy,
Yon cannot make men good by
legislation, nor can you make them
"temperate." Paradoxically, the most
intemperate men of the day are the
extremist temperance advocates.
In Kansas
"The prohibitory law of Kansas is
the worst law ever passed in any
state of the American Union," declares County Attorney Taggert, of Kansas City, Kan., in an Interview published in the St. Louis Times, of the
17th ultimo. "It has made thieves
and perjurers of men who were honest, and it lias resulted in corrupted
officials. It cannot be enforced anywhere, and under the present system
ii drives the man who would lie eon-
tented wiih a single drink at the bar
to drink half a pint of whiskey instead. It is costing Wyandotte
County at least $30,000 a year to
maintain a semblance of enforcing
the law. There were 250 convictions
last year, but the revenue from them
went, for the most part, to the Attorney General's office, not to the county. This town is also in a worse
condition in the matter of rentals and
taxation than it was before. The tax
rate is increased 2% per cent on the
$1,000, and the business streets are
full of 'for rent' signs. Tho business
thai was formerly transacted in saloons here now goes to Kansas City,
Mo. There isn't any less drinking
nor any less drunkenness."
Alcholic Consumption
The general superintendent of ihe
Anti-Saloon League (the chief prohibition organization of the United
States) asserts in liis recent annual
reporl thai 41,000,000 of the people
of the United .Stales are now living
in prohibition territory. Willi the exception of Maine and Kansas, which
have a population of less than two
anil :i half millions, practically all alleged "prohibition territory" has
been gained during the past ten
years. In this period, tho consumption or alcoholic beverages has Increased about twenty-fice per cent
faster than (lie total population. In
the light of these facts, it Is pertinent to ask, who, what and where
does prohibition prohibit? It is significant to note that In 1900 there were
189,OSS "retail liquor dealers," who
paid the special lax of $25 to the
federal government; 1910 their number was 202,GS7, in increase of 13,-
598, or 7.2 per cent. Is this In spite
or because of "prohibition"?
Protests Against Prohibition
Fayette County and Central Kentucky paid a splendid tribute to
Henry Watterson, Kentucky's distinguished statesman, journalist and
orator, al the opening of the Blue
Grass fair al Lexington,
At the dose of liis masterful ad-
drei    .Mi   Watterson Bald;—
"' protesl agalnsl that religion
which sands the sugar and waters
the milk I,, fore ii goes to its prayers.'
I protest against that morality which
Poses as a saint in public lo do as it
Pleases in private. As the old woman said of the old man's swearing:
'If there's anything I do hybomlnate,
ii Is hypocrisy,' In my opinion, that
which threatens Kentucky are not
the gentlemanly vices bul perfidy and
phariseeism in  public and in private
life.
"Tiie men who made the Blue
Crass famous, who put the brand of
glory upon its women, its horses and
its vintage, were not ashamed to take
a drink nor to lay a wager; though
they paid their losses and understood where to draw tin. line.    They
marked the distinction between moderation and intemperance. They
did not need to be told what honor
it. They believed, as I believe that
there is such a thing as pretending to
more virtue than honest mortals can
hope to attain.
"I know very well how I shall be
rated for saying this; how my words
will be misrepresented and misquoted and misconstrued; I told you not
to ask me to come here, but being
here, I am bound to speak as I am
;,'iven the mind to think and the light
to see and lo warn our people against
tiie intrusion of certain 'isms,' whifh
describe themselve as 'progress' and
muster under (lie standards of what
they call 'God and -Morality,' but
which fifty years ago went by a very
dlfferenl name; 'isms' which take
their splrll from Cotton Mather; not,
from .lesus Christ; 'isms' which
where they cannot rule, would burn
at the stake; 'isms' which embrace
tiie sum of all fanaticism and intolerance, proposing that instead of tho
rich, red blood of Virginia, ice water
shall flow through tiie veins of the
people; 'isms' which, in one word,
would blot Kentucky out of the
galaxy of stars and recreate her In
the dread image of Maine and Kansas.
"I refuse to yield to these. Holding the ministry in reverence as
spiritual advisors, rejecting them as
emissaries of temporal power, I do
not intend, if I can help it, to be
compelled to accept a rule of modern
clericalism, which, if it could have its
bent and sway, would revive for us
the priest-ridden systems of the middle ages. I do not care to live in a
world that is too good to be genial;
loo ascetic to be honest; too prescriptive to be hippy. I do not believe
that men can be legislated into angels—even red-nosed angels. The
'blue laws' of New England—dead
letters for the most part, did  more
harm to the people, whilst they last
ed, than all other agencies united.
I would leave them in the cold storage, to which the execration of some
and the neglect of all, consigned
them long ago, not emblam them and
import them to Kentucky to poison
the meat and drink and character of
the people. 1 shall leave my home
life, my professional career and my
familiar associates to say whether I
do not place, and have not always
placed, the integrity of man, the
purity of waman and the. sanctity of
religion above all earthly things; but
I hope never to grow too old to make
merry with my friends and forget
for a little that I am no longer one
and twenty! When the time arrives for me to go to my account, I
mean to go shouting; to go with my
flag flying, and, as 1 have never lied
to the people of Kentucky, pleace
God I never shall. 1 have told them
a great many unpalatable things. I
have met their disapproval full in
the face. 1 have lived to see most
of my admonitions against this, that
and the other vain hope vindicated by
events. I want to live yei a little
longer still to tell Ihe truth and
shame the devil; but if obscurity and
adversity and neglect shall overtake
me it will be a comfort even in the
valley of the shadow of. death that
from first to last I fought, not for
the speckled gospels of the short-
haired men of Babylon, but for the
simple manhood and lovely womanhood of old Kentucky—never New
Kentucky, but always and forever
Old Kentucky-—your birthright and
mine."
What the Bishops Say
.   Bishop Satterlee said:—
"Prohibition has been tried in
other places and it has been found
wanting. In Maine, which is pointed
out as the first place where prohibitory laws were enacted, prohibition is
a farce."
Archbishop Messmer says: —
"I do not believe that we can reform men by law.    Prohibition, according to many observers, actually

Both Bishop Webb of Milwaukee
and Bishop Grafton of Fond du Lac,
have declared themselves as opposed
to prohibition.
Bishop Grafton declared that pro-
hibtion by causing continuous violation of law, was more dangerous to
the people than occasional cases of
drunkenness.
Cardinal Gibbon says:—
"I am persuaded that It is practically impossible to put prohibition into effect in any large community.
"Laws like prohibition that are
certain to be violated had best not be
made, for incessant violation draws
down upon them disrespect."
Aid. Hilditch, at last evening's
