GIVE GUN AND KNIFE MEN THE LIMIT
Men Who Carry Deadly Weapons Should
Be Most Severely Dealt With by
Those in Authority
The practice of carrying deadly
weapons, which has obtained among
the foreign element constituting a
large majority of the railroad construction gangs in this neighborhood, is a matter which should receive the serious attention of those
having authority to handle such
cases, and every man caught with
,|c a gun, knife or other deadly weapon upon his person should be made
to feel the strong arm of the law
descend upon him in no gentle
manner.
There is no possible excuse for a
man to make of himself a walking
arsenal Hfcre in British Columbia;
and any man who, in a civilized
community and pursuing the ordinary callings of life, buckles on a
gun or knife and mingles with his
fellow men, is both a moral and a
physical coward. He goes forth
with murder in his heart tlie minute he conceals a deadly weapon
about his person, and he will both
do and say things with his gun on
him which he would not dare do
or say were he without it.
This may be regarded as a broad
assertion, but it is, nevertheless,
true. The editor of The Loyalist
well remembers a case in point,
and it is not, in any manner, an
isolated one, which fully backs up
his claim. In Tombstone, Arizona, during the gold excitement of
188&-4, Jack Bien, one of the. worst
"guh-players" in the country, and
a man with a record of 16 victims
ae a result of his ability to ''pull
first," while drunk made Charlie
Fairchild, a gambler, but a good-
natured, peaceable man, take water at the muzzle of a gun. A few
days later Fairchild caught Bien
in a shack barber-shop without his
guns. The gambler jumped in and
beat the "bad man's face to a pulp,
using only nature's weapons, and
when he was permitted to get up
he sneaked away like the whipped
cur that he was, and never resented
it afterward. He went up against
a Man, and he realized it.
This pistol carrying is becoming
alarmingly prevalent, and immediate action and stringent measures should be adopted to put an
end to these foreigners, or any
other class of foreigners, placing
the lives of law-abiding citizens in
jeopardy. It will not do to wait
until some one is murdered before
punishment is meted out to the
gun-carrier; tlie mere fact of his
having it on him is sufficient to
warrant the severest penalty the
law imposes.
To permit these fellowB to go
armed and wait till some, man or
woman is shot down, and then arrest and punish him, is much like
placing a loaf of bread on the coffin of a man who has starved to
death���the remedy will have been
applied too late to be effective,
Capital Is Coming This Way
By press dispatches we are informed that a wealthy English syndicate has been formed to develop
a new halibut fishing industry between Queen Charlotte Islands and
Prince Rupert, Where the finest
halibut fishing grounds in the world
are situated. They will erect and
. put in operation extensive curing
establishments at the mouth of the
Skeena river;   Such is the state
ment made to a press representative by Mr. Sylvester Swettenham
who is connected with the English
banking house of Glyn, Mills &
Co., and who is now in British Columbia looking after the interests
of the syndicate. The amount of
capital to be invested is $2,000,000.
Mr. Swettenham, who is a member of the Carlton club, said that a
great many London clubmen came
to Canada for pleasure ostensibly,
but have other and more serious
purposes in view. He added: "The
majority are looking for a favorable opening for investment; not the
kind of things that are likely to be
unloaded upon them by ordinary
promoters, but enterprises that are
likely to give immediate returns,
and will prove a permanent source
of profit."

Will Establish a Weekly Paper
A. Hope Herd, a bright young
newspaper man from Victoria, came
up on the Beatrice Sunday night,
and while the boat was waiting for
the tide Mr. Herd called on The
Loyalist. He was enroute to Queen
Charlotte Townsite, where he will
establish The News, a weekly publication, and had aboard the Beatrice a complete modern plant for
newspaper and job work.
Mr. Herd, although comparatively a young man, has had ample
experience in the business to fortify him in his new venture, and
this, coupled with a natural adaptability, will certainly ensure him
success. The Loyalist wishes him
all kinds of good luck, and will
look for The News among our exchanges at an early date.
Draw Fifteen Days Each
Two Montenegrins, whose names
would exhaust the English alphabet, and then some, were tried before Justice Baillie Tuesday afternoon, on a charge of threatening to
kill Tony McHugh. The trial resulted in their conviction, each being assessed a fine of $10 or 15 days.
Fifteen days looked better to
them than for each to separate
himself from a ten-spot, so they
were locked up. They will have
ample time to let the fact percolate
through their cupolas that "a good
citizen beats a flush."
Vina Oaks officiated as interpreter and he hasn't got the kinks
out of his vocalizer yet.
Will Build New Landing
The point of rocks on the beach
at the head of Dufferin street will
soon be transformed into a convenient landing for boats plying on
the river. Robt. G. Cunningham
has a force of men employed, under H. Dagnall, who is superintending the flxtonsive improvements
the firm is making, and a substantial wharf will soon mark this site.
Piles will be driven far out in the
river, and a landing with ample
accommodations for both freight
and passenger traffic will be constructed.
 .���i �� i	
Work of Planking Is Finished
J. N. MePhee, foreman on the
government work at this port, has
completed planking of the streets
and walks, and left for Rupert on
the Native Wednesday, That Mr.
MePhee thoroughly understands
his business, the work done in Es-
LOGALETTES
[SEE PAQK 4 KOR ADDITIONAL LOCAL.]
The snagboat Cygnet went up
the river Monday.
Constable Jack Munro wont south
on the May Saturday, having in
charge Rankin, who was sentenced
to 18 months for forgery,
Geo. Frizzell has received the
appointment as sole agent at this
port for the passenger traffic of tho
West Coast Towing Co. ���
R. G, Cunningham has started
a force to cleaning up the grounds
about the cabin row, and no more
trash will thrown on these premises.
There is now quite a fleet plying
between Essington and Rupert���
the Native, Sadie Hiltz, Chieftain
and Topaz, and all are doing good
business.
The Loyalist acknowledges a
pleasant call on laBt Sunday night
from Messrs. Harlock and Ws>ller,
second engineer and quartermaster, respectively, of the Hazelton.
A. J. Matheson, agent at this
port for the C. P. R. Steamship Co.,
has moved into his new office on
the north side of Dufferin street,
opposite the JackBon building.
Walter Scrivenger, who has held
the position of steward at the Essington for some time, has resigned
his position and will enjoy a vacation of a month or two. He will
leave on the Camosun for Vancouver and points south.
The Princess May and Princess
Royal will be the C. P. R. boats for
the summer Skagway schedule, the
Royal going into the trade about
the latter part of June or the first
of July. The Beatrice will continue on her run as at present.
Prov. Constable Cullins went to
Rupert Saturday evening, having
in custody the man Harmon, who
broke jail at Hazelton and was
captured here last week. As Rupert and Hazelton arc in the same
police district, Harmon will have
his trial in Rupert.
Billy Greer informs The Loyalist that he intends to live the simple life for some months. He will
eschew all alluring pastimes with
a tendency toward strenuosity, especially horseracing; he once put
down his long green on a "good I
thing" at 10 to 1, and the skate
didn't get in till half-past 6.
Will Inspect Valley Land
Mr. Ernest Wilbur of the North
Coast, who recently purchased 640
acres of Skeena valley land, just
this side of the canyon, and C. W. 1
Brown of Eugene, Ore., were pas-
sengers on the Hazelton today for |
Up the river.
It is the purpose of these gentle-
men to make a careful and pains-,
taking inspection of the soil in the ,
valley, with a view to ascertaining'
its adaptability to the various crops.
Mr. Wilbur is  a thorough prac-;
tical farmer, with  a  keen  insight
into the details of the business, and j
the fact that he has emphasized his
confidence in  the country  to the i
extent of taking over 640 acres in
the valley is evidence that there is
something in it. ^

a large freight tonnage.
The Port Simpson, Capt. T. C.

along with tho Hazelton, is now
laying up at Port Simpson. Capt.
Jackman will await reports from
Capt. Bucey before starting up with

Murder at Prince Rupert
Monday night a Prince Rupert
lodging house was the scene of a
shooting Scrape between two brothers, Montenegrins, which resulted
in murder. The two men had been
employed on the construction work
near Rupert, and were occupants
of cots in the bunkhouse where the
shooting occurred. They were seen
together on the second floor of the
house but a short time before the
killing, but when the shot was fired
there were no witnesses to the affair. The murderer, Lova Drogo-
vitch, after firing the shot which
endod the life of his brother, rushed
down the stairway in an attempt
to escape, but was captured as he
landed on the first floor and turned
over to Chief of Police Vickers, who
seized his gun and then locked the
prisoner in jail.
An inquest over the remains of
the doad man were held Tuesday,
but nothing was   developed that
would explain   the   cause of the
quarrel.

Leaves Essington Tonight
Billy Greer, the affable night
manager of the Essington cafe, after
a residence in Essington for the
past ten months, will sever his connection with the above popular establishment and leave for Vancouver tonight on the Camosun.
During his stay here Mr. Greer
has made many friends, both among
residents and the traveling patronage of the cafe, who will, with regret, learn of his departure.
Here's to you,  Billy,  wherever
you may pitch your tepee; may
the rice crop never prove a failure.

Remove It Before H's Too Late
There is a veritable fire-trap on
the north side of Dufferin street,
opposite the Dominion Fishery
building, in which enough inflammable material is scattered about
to make a good sized conflagration
in itself. There should be no
chances taken with this pile of refuse lumber, and it should be removed before some thoughtless person throws a lighted match or burning cigar stub over the railing. It
should be gathered up and deposited in some secluded spot where,
if it does burn up, it won't take
the town with it.

WILL NOT BE DEIFIED
" Roosevelt closed the saloons on
Sunday when he was police commissioner���that's a dream."
So spoke District Attorney Jerome of New York city last week,
when addressing a committee of
the senate, favoring the opening of
saloons in first-class cities on Sundays between certain hours. And
as time unfolds, many great achievements which have been attributed
to Roosevelt will be found to be
fiction pure and simple. There is
no immediate danger of his being
deified; rather he will be remembered as a fepecies of "buttinski" in
a class which, happily for his
country, is wholly his own. No
public man of modem times has
sought the limelight so incessantly,
or has accomplished so little of
good for his country. ���He posed as
the supreme regulator of all things
of the earth earthy, and was about
to start in on a revision of the plan
of salvation when a kind Providence stepped in and brought his
official career to a close.
Roosevelt's erratic methods, his
total ignorance of the science of
finance, plunged the states into n
money panic, in 1907-8, from which
many of them are but just now recovering, and which forced a number of reputable and old-established houses to the wall.
J. Pierpont Morgan, the great
American financier, in a recent interview, expressed the hope that the
ex-president, who is now on a world
tour, would not hurry back to the
states, and added:
" Roosevelt's name will pass into
history as that of a man who caused
incalculable commercial and financial damage to America."
The following advertisement appeared in thy Butte (Mont.) Inter
Mountain, which is the only paper
in the above city capable of endorsing such sentiments:
Highest salary will be paid thoroughly competent French, Swede or German girl; no Irish
need apply,   -iti:t*-a Broadway, Butte.
And Mrs. C, L. Miller, who inserted it, is the center of a storm
of censure from all classes of Butte's
citizens. It is to be expected that
she would be censured, but pitied
would be the more charitable term.
For a person so narrow-minded,
whose intellect is so perverted that
Bhe regards the fact of a woman
having been born in the "Little
Green Isle" as sufficient cause for
refusing to employ her, is an object for pity, and to censure her
Would be according her a dignity
which her lack of common horse
sense does not warrant.
Andy Carnegie has just evolved
a puzzler. He wants to know what
England and Germany mean by
preparing for war. Why, Andy,
that's the very thing that England
and Germany are trying to figure out.

Herring Fishing in British Columbia
Waters for Season of 1909

Have you seen the window display of Canada's most popular styles in
Men's Suits at the Fit-Reform Wardrobe that will be
worn by good dressers this Spring
THESE arc but apart of the Fit-Reform fashions for 1909, but they
give a good idea of the taste and originality of the Fit-Reform
designers. It may he that we have not shown just the style that appeals to you. We have some that will, be sure of that, and will gladly
show them when you call. It is always a pleasure to demonstrate the
superiority of Fit-Reform garments. We trust you will give us this
pleasure soon. The Fit-Reform trademark carries with it the strongest
guarantee ever given with a suit or overcoat. It not only says "money
back if satisfaction be not given," but the company behind the trademark insures you getting your money back. It is placed only in garments that have passed the rigid inspection of the Fit-Reform experts.
And we will take it as a personal favor if you will Wring to our attention any garment hearing this trademark which may not come up to
the Fit-Reform standard. We not only make the guarantee good but
thank you for your trouble Every Fit-Reform suit and overcoat is made
:is though the Fit-Reform reputation depended on those individual garments. From the time the cloth goes to the cutters until tlie garments
lire ready to try on, every stage of the making is carefully watched.
When the completed garments leave the last tailors, skilled experts examine every detail of workmanship to make doubly sure that each garment is worthy of hearing the Fit-Reform trademark. Fit-Reform has
won the bulk of its customers from men who formerly patronized the
best custom tailors. Fit-Reform has clearly demonstrated that innan
gets better value for the money in these garments than he can get at a
tailor's. Aside from the greater variety to choose from and the Fit-
Reform trademark to guarantee satisfaction, there is the added pleasure of having garments ready to try on, alterations made if necessary
aod the perfect fitting suit or overcoat delivered the same day it is ordered.    This no slight convenience to the busy business man.
