MANY INQUIRIES ARE COMING IN
Parties From a Distance Want Informa*
Hon Concerning the Possibilities of the
Country Roundabout Essington
The Loyalist is in receipt of requests from several distant points
in the states calling for information concerning the country contiguous to Essington, and these requests come from parties who are
looking for locations for homes and
business sites.
This certainly looks good to The
Loyalist. Northwest British Columbia, and particularly that portion lying about Port Essyigton
and in the Skeena district generally, is attracting more and more
the attention of prospective settlers
every year, and the glorious results
achieved by those who have already
cast their lot with us have had the
effect of exciting interest in this locality in the minds of parties contemplating a change.
This is all as it should be; for,
nowhere on the western hemisphere
are opportunities so ripe for men
with small capital to attain to a
position of independence, if not affluence, as they are right herein
this immediate section.
The country is rich in mineral
resources, with an abundance of
virgin and full growth timber, and
countless acres of fertile agriculti-
Ural and fruit land just waiting to
be tickled by the plow in order to
bring forth golden harvests. An
important item in this connection
is the fact that there is an abundance of good water the year round
with ample facilities for. transport-
tion of produce to the markets.
The Grand Trunk Pacific railway
will.soon have its line to the coast
completed, and when this is accomplished settlers it) this vicinity
will have the advantage of transportation over the longest direct
transcontinental line of railroad in
the world, in addition to the numerous steamships and other craft
plying between the Yukon and
Alaskan .ports and Vancouver.
There is no better time than right
now in which to grasp these opportunities and get in on the ground
floor.
In addition to being especially
favored in the peculiar nature of
the soil surrounding the town. Es-
sington's claim, with the figures J
back it up, to being.the grea .t
fishing and canning point on the
coast has never been successfully
disputed. During the fishing season, which will shortly begin, from
8000 to 4000 men are employed in
different capacities. All these people consume is purchased here in
Essington, and this creates a demand for a peculiar line of produce
which could be met by the farmer
or tl jck gardener, and this demand
Would not be for any j special sea-
Bon, but a ready sale at good prices
can be found here the year round
for all vegetables the truck farmer
can raise.
Within a radius of thirty miles
about Essington there are in $be
neighborhood of 5000 men employed in the railroad camps, This
Work will continue for two or three
years, and is being! prosecuted by
the Grand Trunk Pacific. In'the
Immediate Vicinity arc a number
of sawmills and lumber camps and
the men employed in this latter industry will reach Into the hundreds)
Not aii inconsiderable portion of
lh�� travel which falls to Essington
is that which emanates from the
Yukon country and from Alaskan
ports. Altogether, Essington can
lay claim to being one of the very
busies! towns in the Northwest,
and what is better still, she gets
busier e\ ery day.
The Loyalist claims, and its
claim is hacked by substantial results, that there can be no safer investment of idle capital than here
in this section of British Columbia,
and prospective investors will do
well to investigate conditions hereabouts before closing deals elsewhere.
R. G. Cunningham Returns
R. G. Cunningham, who has been
on an extended trip in the south,
returned to Essington on the steamship Vadso Wednesday night.
Mr. Cunningham's itinerary included California and Mexico, and
during his absence of six weeks,
all the principal cities and coast
resorts of the two countries were
visited. The trip was made purely
for pleasure, and Mr. Cunningham
expresses himself as highly delighted with the results.
Hamamoto Was Acquitted
In the last issue of The Loyalist
in error crept into the report of
the trial of the two Japs on the
deer meat charge. S. Hamamoto,
who, with K. Minwa, was arrested
lor having deer meat in his possession, was acquitted, but Minwa was
lined $50 and costs.

DANCE WAS LIBERALLY ATTENDED
Town Hall Was Brilliant Scene of Merry
Dancers Tuesday Night, Upon Occasion
of Tire Commiti ;e's Ball and Supper
The dance and supper arranged
by the fire committee for the purpose of raising the necessary funds
with which to purchase fire apparatus, came off Tuesday night at
the Town hall, and in point of attendance and solid enjoyment, it
was certainly a corker.
The gentlemen having the affair
in hand constituted a committee
appointed at a meeting of citizens
held about ten days ago to devise
ways and means of providing necessary funds to complete the purchase (>f a chemical engine.
The committee was composed of
the following named gentlemen:
Pros. Shade, Secretary Sloan, H.
Berryman, J. Adams, Frank Dowar,
George Frizzell, N. P. Moran and
J. M. MacCormick. And right well
did they perform their work.
From another source, however,
came invaluable assistance, and
upon which the success of the affair depended to a considerable extent. The Loyalist refers to the
ladies, who so generously prepared
and served the supper. The ladies
in charge of this end of the entertainment were: Mrs. Dr. Wilson,
Mrs. Geo. Shade. Mrs. Geo. Frizzell and Mrs. John Cunningham.
All the ladies of Essington liberally responded to the call of the
committee, and their ready participation in the event certainly con-1
tributed to the enjoyment of the
dance.
The music for the dance was furnished by Messrs. Lang, Wilbur
and Cecil, and was of a high order.
These gentlemen have demonstrated their ability as entertainers on
several previous occasions, and the
mere announcement that the instrumental portion of the program
would be in their hands was sufficient in itself to draw out a good
attendance.'
The dancers kept up the merriment until near 8:00 o'clock, when
the assemblage dispersed for their
homes,
Altogether this initial entertainment, which will be followed by
others, was a decided success, both
." n: ��� .- icialenjoyment and financial point ii view.
Mr. Geo, Frizzell, who was master of ceremonies, reports that the
tidy sum of $95.00 was realized.
The Loyalist that a sail, which has
been identified as having belonged
to Yentoff, one of three men who
left Porcher Island in a boat on
the .light of Jan. 24, since which
timo they have been missing,' has
been picked up at Port Simpson.
No trace of the boat or of the bodies of the men has been discovered,
and at this late, ditto no hope is entertained that tliere ever will be.   '

Fire Committee Will Meet On Call
A meeting of the fire committee,
subject to call of the chairman, will
be held the coming week, to make
an official report on the result of
the ball and supper given last Tuesday night. The time and place of
the meeting will be announced by
Chairman Shade, who states that
it is'the desire of the committee
that the citizens generally be present and hear the reports.
The gentlemen in charge of the
entertainment portion of the fire
apparatus fund will, at this meeting, appoint sub-committees, together with a committee of ladies,
who will have charge of arrangements for the second of the series
of functions to be given for fire relief purposes.

Building Will Be Brisk This Spring
From present indications there
is goiug to be an unusual amount
of building in and about Essington

are projected, and as every house
habitable is occupied, there will
have to be new buildings erected to
accommodate the spring trade, as
an unusually brisk season is anticipated by our business men.

WILL BE AN UNWISE MOVE
Rumor has been current that,
when the G. T. P. throws the town-
site lots on the market, it is the intention to list them at a top figure.
If this is true, and the company
carries out its intention, it will be
an exceedingly unwise move, to
say the leant concerning it.
There are a number of men of
moderate means who have been
waiting for an official announcement of the date of this sale���men
who can and will purchase lots on
which to erect homes, if the property is offered at a reasonable price,
but if exorbitant values are quoted
at the start this class will he debarred from purchasing. Such a
scheme would have the effect of inviting buyers for speculative purposes solely ��� the very condition
which should be guarded against if
Prince Rupert desires to build up
and grow,
It is impossible to have a town
or a city without people who will
build homes; and, as Prince Rupert
must look to the home-builder, the
man of moderate means, and not
to the land-shark, as the source
from which the bulk of its population must spring, it will b�� seen
that to start this sale at fancy prices
will prevent this most desirable
class of men from entering the
field.
The one condition that will retard the growth of a town is for
land speculators to gain a foothold
in it. They keep oUt the man of
small means who would improve
the property, and the result for
years to come is a number of vacant and unirhproved lots, whose
owners live probably 1000 miles
from the town.
This condition has been demonstrated so often that it seems incredible that any body of men, naturally supposed to possess at leaBt
ordinary business sagacity, should
put a prohibitive price on their
holdings, and thus freeze out the
very element that goes to build up
any town.

A short time ago an issue of bonds

the "anticipated indebtedness" consisted of a fli'm determination bn
the part of the city officials to increase their salaries Which they did
as soon as the money from the

Child Is Carefully and Tenderly Nurtured
Until Aoe of Young Manhood, When
Sacrificial Feast Is Spread
Human sacrifice U still practiced
in West Africa, as well as in the
Philippines, according to Mrs, Norr
thesk Wilson, who last year made
A 1000.mile trip down the Ivory
And Gold coasts to study the fetish
religion, and who, on her recent
return to London, h��s delivered
several lectures detailing her experience,
"The Gold coast native," says
Mrs. Wilson, "is a fatalist who has
no conception of the value of life.
Having a vague belief in reincarnation, he is willing to sacrifice
himself for his religion, Children
Are raised for the express purpose
of being sacrificed.
"When the child comes to manhood ho is shaved and anointed
And everything he desires Is given
him, Wild revels are held in the
heart of the forest, the victim is
bathed and scented, and then worshiped for two days. On the third
day there Is an indescribable scene
of debauchery, when the doomed
man is put into a split tree and
killed.
"These sacrificial rites are performed not through a lust for blood,
but rather because of a desire to
make atonement and placate the
gods.
"Even the president of Liberie,
whom I met, believes in fetishism,
and possesses a 'ju-ju,' although he
is an exceptionally intelligent man
and a Harvard graduate." ....
CRYSTAL PALACE MAY BE SOLD
Historic Old Building Has Ceased to Be
an Object of Interest to London Folk,
and Is Now In Receiver's Hands
Thousands of people all over the
world, says a letter from London,
will regret to hear that the Crystal
Palace has fallen on evil days, and
is now in the hands of a receiver.
For years the big glass house at
Sydenham has been a sort of national'institution, with an international reputation, like the Abbey,
the TqSver and the Monument.
Unhappy the child who has never
seen the Crystal Palace in its glory,
with its broad, blooming grounds,
water temples, rising balloons, and
at night its myriad of lights and
world-famous fireworks.
Last summer there were no fireworks. That was a sign of what
was happening. The public had
lost interest in the place in which
another generation had found its
most joyful entertainment.
It' is generally hoped that the
necessary.funds will be forthcoming to relieve the Pr.lace from its
difficulties, but its fate today is uncertain.
Women of Turkey Assert Their Rights
Turkish women are getting their
emancipation rapidly. They have
hardly emerged from the seclusion
of the harem, but will make a move
toward demanding political privileges. ' >-"    .1
They have begun by requesting
permission to attend the opening
of the new parliament, and to have
a box reserved for them so they can
listen to the debates.
The demand was accompanied
by a threat that if this privilege
was denied them and given to the
Christian women, they would follow the example of the suffragettes
of London, and demonstrate outside
the parliament building.

Dtl WITNESS TRAVELS MANY MILES
Alaska Man, Living in the Arctic Circle, Is
on His Way to Juneau. Where He Will Be
a Witness Before the Federal Court
Mushing over the frozen trails of
Alaska, from Coldfoot to Fort Gibbon, a distance of 7oO miles, thence
to Fairbanks, to Valdez and then
to Juneau, where he will appear as
a witness in the trial of Edward
Hasey. charged with assault with
a deadly weapon with intent to kill.
M. B. Morrissey will be entitled to
approximately $3000 in mileage
fees alone, in addition to his fees
as a witness.
Morrissey, who last year was a
witness for the government, lives
at Coldfoot, 68 miles within the
Arctic circle, and he experienced
severe hardships in his long journey over the frozen trails to get to
Juneau to testify in the trial.
Morrissey is a young man, probably not more than 23 years old.
He started out of Coldfoot with a
team of seven dogs and an Indian
guide. Three of the dogs died on
the trail and the other four had
their feet badly frozen when they
reached Fairbanks.
The case against Hasey grew out
of the rioting in the Keystone canyon in Alaska, where the Copper
River & Northwestern railway was
fighting with the Home railway of
Valdez for the right of way thro'
the canyon. The canyon . is very
narrow, and when the construction
gangs of the two roads met in the
canyon several fierce battles were
fought. In one of the encounters
two men were killed. Mike Sullivan, one of the best known characters in the North, was tried and
acquitted of the charge of having
fired the shots that resulted in the
death of the two men. Hasey is
now on trial for the same crime.

HAS CANADA "GOT IT "AGAIN?
House of Commons Document Shows That
the New Treaty Boundary Arrangement
Gives Important Islands to the States
In the house of commons Monday Major Currie stated that the
boundary treaty gives part of the
islands in boundary waters, decided
by the Ashbu.rton treaty to be in
Canada, away to our neighbors,
says an Ottawa dispatch to the
World, and, according to the major, it looks like a trick perpetrated
by Uncle Sam's negotiators. He
said that in previous negotiations
Canada had lost the states of Ohio,
Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin Missouri and Michigan, and when tho
recent boundary treaty was negotiated he bad made up his mind
that we wollld be "gold-bricked."
As a matter of fact we have been.
He finds that in the recent boundary treaty we had suffered a loss of
more territory to the state of Minnesota through the diversion of the
line to intersect lands on the boundary. This territory was Hunter
Island in Pigeon river. The Ash-
burton treaty gave Hunter Island
to Canada.
The two drafts of the new treaty
declared that the boundary line
"should not intersect islands lying
along its course." In the treaty a6
signed and published as a sessional
paper, the word "not" is omitted,
so that Hunter and other islands
in boundary waters would be divided and half given to the United
States. It turns out, how'ever, that
the treaty itself contains the word
"not," so that the sessional paper
may have been merely a misprint.
The treaty also stipulates that
the boundary shall follow the line
laid down by the Ashburton treaty
and also that it shall be a water
line. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, in replying, promised to refresh his
memory and give an answer on another occasion.
