Gen. Von Hindenberg's third invasion of Poland is In sight. The Russian force has advanced against the
right wing of the Germans before
Warsaw. It attacked to the south of

WATERI'HOXTAGE  LEASES.
All persons interested In the acquiring of leases on Ihe waterfront,
owned by the Provincial Government
are requested to communicate In
writing with the special committee
of the Board Of Trade, Board of
Trade  Rooms,   2nd  Ave, giving  lull
particulars of whal they require, the
use they Intend making of the waterfront   obtained,   anil   the    aniounl
of Improvement proposed. All applications should be in by the 28th
Inst., In order in allow the committee
time to compile such Information received Iii time iii suiiinii to Col, R.
H, Thompson, representative of the
Provincial Government on his return
to Prince Rupert in the near future,
One result of the completion' of
the G.T.P. has been that Christmas
turkey is this year cheaper than In
the past and lower than Vancouver
prices. A carload of poultry and
other food stuff reached the city
Sunday night by fast freight with
the result that turkeys are on sale
at Erizzell's, P, Burns' and elsewhere, at 30 cents a pound, with
other poultry in proportion.. The
turkeys are not cold storage slock
but. are from tbe Edmonton district
and  are  fresh.
That the prices are lower than in
Vancouver is borne out by the following from the News-Advertlser;
"There are lots of turkeys now In
the stores of the retailers, both of
eastern and local production. Local
turkeys are being sold at 4(1 cents a
pound the eastern can be secured at
from 32 to 36 cents a pound. Ducks
and geese are also In good supply and
the ducks are fetching 27 cents :i
pound, while the geese retail at 30
cents. Poultry prici's are unchanged
and boiling [owls can still be obtained at 2 1 cents n pound. Si|ii,-ilis
are $1 a pair and pigeons ST, cents a
pair. Order.- are not being received
by the retailers to anything like the
extent they were at Ibis lime lusi
year, but It is believed the triule in
these delicacies will soon take a big
.ii nip."

THE  IRISH FUSILIERS.
Last  evening  the    Irish    Fusiliers
serving In garrison here gave an entertainment  to  which   local    citizens
were invited. The entertainment was
a  highly  creditable  one.  Apart altogether from -She character of the programme    given,    the    spirit    which
prompted the giving of it cannot   be
too highly commended. The Fusiliers
during  their stay  in   Prince  Rupert
have    acquitted     themselves     with
credit. There has been a conspicuous
absence of rowdyism on the part of
the men composing the regiment and
in   all    respects    they   have   shown
themselves worthy of the highest respect.   It should never   be  forgoten
that  the  members of that regiment
are  for thc most  part   the sons   of
citizens  of  this  province.    They are
young   men  just   like    the    ordinary
young  men  of Prince  Rupert.   They

drinking heavily here, left for the
norl hern town on Tuesday morning
on a freight rig, but left the latter
at Holt's corners, and after a time
continued on bis way to Fort George
on  foot.   He was met   when   about
At Monday evening's meeting of
the Council the assessment question was brought up "without warning by Aid. Morrissey and the point
as to whether the assessmenl should
be decreased or left about the same
considered.
Aid. Morrissey said that there wasl
a tendency in the city to demand a
reduction    in    the   assessment   roll.|eisht  milc!i nnrlh ^ G' Butterfleld,
the deputy game warden for the district,  who  strongly advised   him    to
not
heed, however. Butterfleld was apparently the last man to see him
alive.
Coroner Milburn, after some enquiries into the matter, was convinced that there was no foul play in
connection with his death, and therefore did not consider an Inquest
necessary. The remains were interred
in the local cemetery here yesterday afternoon.
Deceased was a man about iiO
years of age, and has been following
railroad contracting for some years,
having bad part in the construction
of the C.P.R., C.N.R., and G.T.P. He
was a native of Bruce County, Ont.
That   was    $17,1100,(100.     Successive
councils had  kept it   at  that.   That
valuation had gone abroad as a eo.-!tunl ":" !" i"lvi'" w!lir!l "" ,,i'1
rect one. Now with treasury certificates coming due it was a matter
to consider whether thc valuation
should not be kept where It was. He
did not approve of reducing the general assessment. The assessor should
equalize, but he would not like to see
a reduction from say $17,000,000 to
$14,000,000.
Aid. Montgomery thought this was
not a time to take this up. This was
a matter for next year's council. It
was* not up to the City Council to
dictate to the assessor.
Aid. Maitland felt the assessor
and the citizens should work together next year.
Aid. McClymont did not believe
that there had been an honest assessment. This was a good time to
reduce  the  assessment.
Aid. Bnsso-Rert felt that this was
a subject that   might   well   be   discussed very freely.

The system heats a thirty-gallon tank of water to boiling temperature in one hour after the fire has bees starled; it in no way Interferes with the oven for hairing purposes. Iu addition to this the
wall radiator which you placed In dining room nnd connected wkli
the range boiler has given us splendid satisfaction, supplying ns
with ample beating throiighou the winter, saving us the cost of a
stove and fuel. I most heartily testify to the satisfaction aud efficiency of your system and gladly recommend It.

The Rexall Stores of Canada
CONTRIBUTE TO
The Canadian Patriotic Fund
THE Rexall Stores of Canada, 100 of the leading Drug Stores
in Canada have unanimously agreed to contribute to the
Canadian Patriotic Fund, FIVE PER CENT, of (heir total purchases of al) Rexall Toilet Goods, Rexall Remedies and other merchandise manufactured or sold by he United Ding Compnny, Limited,
Toronto, from October   15rli   o December 81st, 11)14.
This net ion of the Rexall Drug Stores of Canada has been
undertaken co-operatively, because ns a co-operative organization, they realize o\v much more can lie done nnil-
edly than Individually, and it has been taken for two
reasons—to fulfill a humane duty In raisiHg a fund for the
relief work of Hie Canadian Patriotic Organization, and a
patriotic duty in an endeavor to keep a large staff of
Canadian employees busy.
The 100 Rexall Stores of Canada make an appeal to your
sympathy and support In their doubly worthy cause for
increasing the funds of th Canadian Patriotic Organization and for the support o Canadian workmen because: —
The fund llial would lie raised on the basis of last year's-
business can be tremendously increased if every man and
woman in Canada will help a little hy the simple process
of purchasing Rexall Goods at the Rexall Stores.
No need to give space in this announcement to emphasize
the high quality of Rexall Toilet and Medicinal goods.
Sufficient to say that 7,00 of the leading Drug Stores In
Canada. Great Britain, and tbe United States place their
personal and collective reputations behind them; that the
public In these countries endorse theiu to the extent of
several  million dollars wor'li of purchases a year.
Ret ter goods are not made, and you lake no risk in buying, for every Rexall Stor< will return you your money if
any Rexall Product is not entirely satisfactory and do it,
too, without the slightest objection.
There's a full lis! of Rexall products waiting for you at
the Rexall Store in your town,
Ask for it kindly puss he word along to your friends.
II le the collective purchases of all that will make this
Rexall store fund tor the Canadian Patriotic Organization work a big one
The !'nii<1 will be collects   from each Rexall Store In Can
ada by the United Drug Company,  Limited,  Toronto, and
will be paid l" them direct to the officers of   the   Canadian   Patriotic   Organl ulion, and the amount so collected
will be published  in  this paper  when  paid over.
REXALL (loons ARE MADE IN CANADA  and   you   can   procure
them  In your town only from

PROVIDING OP POWER
TO  HAVSPORT  EXPENSIVE
If tile Skeena  River   Syndicate  Will
Put in Pole Line II .May  lie
Considered.
The city solicitor Monday night reported to the Council with respect to
the request of the Skeena River
Syndicate at Haysport for the providing of power by the city to that
place. Mr. Peters pointed out that
the city did not have the power under the act to carry out such a work.
The pole line would cost about $R0,-
000.
Some discussion followed, most of
the aldermen feeling that while this
was not possible, there might be a
desire on the part of the company
to get the power in quantity here
and put in the pole line themselves.
It was so decided to give the company an opportunity to deal with the
substantive proposition.
