ESSINGTON IS PREPARING HERSELF
Not to Be Caught Napping, Her Citizens
Are Energetically Pushing Their Cam.
palgn Against Dirt
Essington is .assuming a regular
"house-cleaning" aspect just now,
and the rapidity with which dirt
and rubbish is disappearing is certainly good to look upon. The
snow has practically petered out,
thuB greatly facilitating the work
of the men engaged in the cleaning department, and it will hot be
long ere the green grass and the
daisies will be popping out.
In the building line things arc-
taking an exceedingly busy turn.
Several parties are only awaiting
the arrival of lumber, when they
will commence the erection of residence buildings,
H. Dagnall, Essington's well
known carpenter, has had a force
of men at work for the past week
clearing the site of the old Western
house, which was dynamited during the fire last January in order
to nave adjoining buildings, and
will soon begin the work of erecting
a new building, 50x100 feet, for
Mrs. S. Kirby of the Queen's hotel.
The walk running from the Me-
Arthur corner to the poetoffice is
undergoing a thorough overhauling, as are all the cabins along its
line. New approaches will be built
to each'of the houses and the connecting walks strongly trussed up.
Mr. Dagnall, who is doing the latter work under direction of Mr.
George Cunningham, will also build
a box drain along Dufferin street.
i A force of men are at work blasting rock, preparatory to beginning
the erection of the Jackson building on Dufferin street. The structure is designed for a store building, and will be quite an improvement to that part of town.
Altogether this spring promises
to be a busy season in the building
line, and betokens the general prosperity of Essington's people. A
number of houses will be erected
for the accommodation of the large
number of new arrivals who will be
here by the time the fishing and
canning season opens, and Essington may well look forward to a
record-breaking season of business
activity in all branches of trade.
Child Killed in Prince Rupert
Last Saturday, while the men
employed on the street >Vork over
ttt Prince Rupert were blasting, a
large piece of rock was shot up into
the air, arid in its descent, crashed
through the roof of a shack nearby,
A little child playing in the house,
received the full force of the falling
rock upon the head, killing it instantly.
Flshermen, Take Notice
The attention of fishermen is directed toseVeral changes in the fishery regulations, which we print today on tile third page of the Loyalist. The provincial regulations,
it will be seeil, have been made in
the main to  Conform  to those in
force by the dominion government.
���i���   �� ��� .      1
Catholic Services Were Well Attended
Rev. tf. Kientz, D. L., rector in
Charge of the Roman Catholic' mis-
sionj stationed at Prince Rupert,
arrived in Es'sirigtori i&tlt Saturday
luotningi Th.e day Wits' pleasantly
��pettt itl Visiting His! parishioners,
flfld oti gtiiiday mofhing at 10:00
b'elodi (MirV'kei were1 held ih Cun
ningham hall, which were largely
attended. After paying the Loyalist an exceedingly pleasant call,
during which he added his name
to our large and growing list of
subscribers, Father Kientz left for
Prince Rupert Monday afternoon
on the Native.
An Old Settler Leaves Essington
Tonight Mr. and Mrs. John Cunningham will leave on the Camosun for Vancouver, which city they
will make their home. Mr.Cunning-
hiim, who is rated as the oldest
white resident of the town, came
to Essington over thirty*five years
ago, and has been identified with
its social and business life ever
since, He has witnessed it grow
from a spot barren of even a semblance of civilization to its present
prosperous condition, and it is with
a feeling of keen regret that the
old ties are severed and familiar
scenes left behind. The Loyalist
adds its best wishes, to those of the
people of Essington, for the continued prosperity and happiness of
this worthy couple.
Had a Lively Chase   ,
Although the season for hunting
deer is closed tight, with a Yale
lock on both ends, an exciting deer
hunt took place on the streets of
Essington Thursday night, which
caused a lively scattering among
pedestrians along Dufferin street.
The pet deer belonging to the
Cunningham store took advantage
of an open doorway, and, like a
shot out of a cannon, was away
and gone in a minute. The entire
force of the establishment was put
on a hop"skip*and-jump for about
an hour in the attempt to corrall
the wary little animal, which, when
it had had its run out, quietly relumed to its quarters.
Man Is Killed at Vickervllle
Word was received in Prince
Rupert Thursday night that a man
named Fred Neering, who had been
working on a dairy farm near Vickervllle, had been accidentally killed
during tho afternoon. Justice of
tho Peace Martson Was notified of
tho killing, and immediately dispatched a messenger to the scene,
but no particulars concerning the
cause of death are as yet obtainable.
Takes Patient to Asylum
Prov, Policeman Wynn left for
Now Westminster on Wednesday,
having in charge an insane man, a
Russian, whom he will tufn over
to the keepers of the insane asylum
for treatment,
During Officer Wynn's absence
Prov. Constable 0. ft, Cullins of
Prince Rupert will have charge of
this end of the business.
Buys Purs in Essington
M. Pliillipson of Edmonton Was
among the prominent arrivals from
a distance. Mr. Fhillipsoh is an
extensive dealer in fursi arid has
been here before In quest of merchandise in his particular iino.
DtiHrtg his trip on this occasion he
se'ettre'd a number" of high grade
skinsj and was well pleased with
the result of his Visit,

PLAINT OF THE FAMILY MAN
No person with aii ugly looking gun
lifts ever pushed the same beneath my nose
And Impolitely robbed me of my "mon."
It's strange this pever happened, I suppose
Hut I've a wife and daughter to say nothing of
my sons,
And they often go right through me, tho' they
do not carry guns.
I am cleaned out more completely by their scientific plan
Than any wretched victim of the vulgar Holdup man.
I never woke in a back alley yet
As a result of somethini; in my drink;
This fact I do not mention with regret,
Hut there are worse calamities, I think.
I have had some awful knockouts In my bills
for coul and gas,
And the people who haye robbed me I cun't put
in Jail, aiafl!
II is awful to encounter the monopolistic clan,
They have beaten to a (prills any common
hold-up man.
I've never had a little bag of siltid
Descend with crushing forwupon my head.
The methods now employed oil 'me are bland;
My bandits are exceedingly well bred.
They will bring me eggs and butter, and occasionally beef,
Whltdi I fl nd ((Uite necessary, so there's no hope
of relief; '. .,.
There is no use of complaining, I must do the
best I can,
But some grocers can give pointers to the common hold-up man.
T��
LOGAIETTES
The Princess May is now fully
equipped with wireless telegraphic
apparatus.
Will McDonell was laid up a
couple of days this week with a
slight attack of la grippe.
Antony Segar arrived from Vancouver on the Princess May Tuesday night, and has taken his old
position as chef at APs Quick Lunch.
Prov. Constable Jones went to
Smith's Island last Saturday and
succeeded in effecting a release of
the lumber belonging to Contractor
Ross, which was. carried away by
high tide and captured byv some
Indians.
N. S, Clarke, of the Skeena Lumber Co., has received the new boat,
built at Vancouver, which will bo
used for transportation of supplies
to the mill up the river. The little
craft Was brought up by the Camosun Sunday.
The two youngest children of
Mr. and, Mrs. Geo. Frizzell have
been down sick the past week, both
being threatened with pneumonia.
They are improving, however, and
The Loyalist expresses the hope
that they will Soon fully recover.
Tuesday night the Princess May
was delayed at the wharf for three
hours, She was over two hours in
unloading freight consigned to this
port, and did not get away till 10
o'clock. She carried a large number of both cabin artd steerage passengers for points in Alaska and
the Yukon,
Geo. Hayes has been making a
few changes in the appearance of
his business place, among them being an enlargement of his show-
windoW. The inside has been tastefully decorated by the painters and
paper hangers, and the place now
has a decided spring-like look of
freshness about iti
The Craigflower was launched
from the ways Thursday afternoon
and took to the Water like a duck.
Captaih Doilgherty and Engineer
Dean have applied themselves studiously to an Inspection of the repairs and improvements made on
her machinery and both unite in
pronouncing hef a top-notcher.
The Craigflower will be in the Skee.
na river trade this summer, and
will easily hold her own.
-������ 1 ^ ,���1~ ���--
Had a Long Tramp
Harry Draper and Bert Stafford,
two Voting men well known ift Es-
sirigtott, arrived on the Strohgheatt
Monday*   Some time-ago the boys
went north and located a ranch in
the vicinity of Kitsumgallum, where
they have been engaged in improving their holding. Harry Draper
will resume his old position of net
boss at Wadham's cannery, and in
order to be here in time to begin
operations the boys "mushed" all
the way to Telegraph Point, taking
the Strongheart from that port.
They consumed eight days in the
trip and were accompanied by their
faithful dog, "Mickie," who is an
Irish setter and proud of it.
Smoke Up���Try
Somebody certainly has discovered a new brand of "hop." The
report that Essington is an expensive place in which to live, that
board costs $9 a week and that
wages are low, could emanate from
no other source than a dope-soaked
brain. Living in Essington costs
no more for a man than it does
any place else up in this country.
Of course, a man can do here just
as he can in any other city���he can
make his living cost him $50 a
week or he can confine it down to
$5 a week, as many men employed
here are doing every week. And
as to the question of wages, there
are no meh on strike in Essington
for an increase in their pay. Three
dollars a day is the minimum wage
paid here, and the men appear to
be satisfied with it.
Let's Have a Commercial Chib
The many inquiries received by
The Loyalist concerning Essington
and the country surrounding suggest the -idea of. the organization of
a commercial club by the business
element of the town, Such an organization would be of incalculable benefit to Essington in creating a central body for the dissemination of information throughout
the agricultural and farming districts of the border states, and in
getting in closer touch with prospective settlers,
It is estimated that within the
past year over 70,000 farmers from
the states have taken up homes in
Alberta and eastern Canada. British Columbia might just as well as
not have nart of this stream of humanity deflected to her, and would
if proper means were employed.
British Columbia is as safe a place
for investment as  can  be found.
Essington Stands High With Wholesalers
W. E, Herger, of Gait & Co.,
Vancouver, transacted business in
Essington this week arid sold a big
bill of t!,oods to local merchants.
He found EsslngtoH such a brisk
market that he remained four days,
during which time he was busy
from morning till night, The big
trade ��hjoyed by local merchants
necessitates restocking at such short
intervals that wholesalers have
come to look upon Essington as
one point where their representatives arc sure of doing business,
and as a natural sequence the best
grade of goods are sent here, for
they art sure of a sale for tbtfrm
Snagboit "Cygnet" Arrives
W.-fl. Noel, captain oi the snag-
boat, "Cygnet," arrived in port yesterday morning, and will begin his
war upon obstructions in (lie river
ahd sloughs within a fevV day s
The Cyghet has been undergoing
ah overhauling at Inverness slough.
,tnd is how thoroughly equipped for
the strenuous worV ahead of her
thin season/

LET THE WOMEN VOTE
Man wields a mighty power,
He wields it linn and strong;
Hnl the lime is coming, 0 Mr. Mini
When you will not wield It long.
For Woman has just awakened
And Man from bis throne is hurled,
And the hand thai rocka tho cradle
Is the hand thai rules the world.
It's coming, and there's no use
trying to stem the tide���the woman
suffrage movement will not down.
Notwithstanding the rigid repressive measures resorted to in England to deal a death blow to the
agitation by the women of that land
for the right to vote, the movement has steadily gained strength
and now presents a most formidable front to the enemy���Man.
Women have been repeatedly arrested in London, and committed
to prison for terms ranging from
ten days to three months, but the
only effect of these drastic measures has,, been a renewal of their
demonstrations with re-doublcti
vigor immediately upon their release from prison.
And the question arises, Why
should the women of the country
l>e debarred from voting? Here
in North America, more particularly in the states, male foreigners
are admitted as citizens, and be
fore they arc able to distinguish
the difference between the constitution of the country and a hand
organ, they are registered as voters.
Many women are property holders and have vast interests at stake.
Should they not have a say in the
levying of taxes and tho expend
iture of public funds? What semblance of justice is there in permuting a man to vote who never had
enough money atone ami the same
time with which to wad a shotgun
and never owned a foot of real estate except that he carried around
on his person, and at the same time
debarring a woman whose interests run, probably, up into thousands of dollars?
Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, the
eminent expounder of the woman
suffrage doctrine, is now in Germany stirring up the women of
that country, but German suffragettes have not been idle. During
the past year a number of cities
have been organized,and, supported
by the socialist democrats in tin
reithstag, the advocates of equal
suffrage have made astonishing
headway. Mrs. Catt proposes to
inject new life into the movement
in "der kaiser's" realm, and the enthusiasm she has already aroused
has had a decided effect for good
in the cause.

The second woman to be executed in New York was electrocuted
last Monday at Sing Sing. She
was Mrs. Mary Farmer, who murdered Mrs. Sarah Brennan, near
Watertown, cut her body into small
bits and hid it in a trunk. She
then moved into her victim's house,
to which she had forged a deed,
where, with her husband who is
awaiting execution, she was arrested.
, . �� ��
In the U. S. house of representatives Miss Mary Median was presented   with   a   silver   life-saving
medal. In 1904 Miss MeCann,
then but 14 years old, rescued nine
children from the ill-fated steamer
Slocum, "Uncle" Joe Cannon presented the modal in behalf of congress, and after the ceremony kissed the young lady. If Mary recovers from thin she will be entitled
to a diamond-studded gold medal,
for Old Joe's face would stampede
a herd of cattle any time,

The girls of Yakima (Wash,)
high school have organized a track
team and have boon training studiously. They are worried, however, concerning the sort of costume to adopt, Well, girls, we
would suggest-���and It is merely a
suggestion���that a bathing suit or
any other costume cut low in the
neck and high in tho heels would
be about the right thing in a Marathon struggle.
There is an elegant line of new
spring shirts displayed in the window at the North Coast Commercial Co. Ltd., this week; any one

DOMINION FISHERY RULES PREVAIL
Provincial Government Makes Changes In
Regulations to Conform to Provisions of
General Laws In Force
[Vancouver World]
The provincial fishery regulations tor the coming season have
been made to- conform to those of
the dominion government- There
is a change in the amount of the
provincial license, and there are no
conditions attached to the granting of the license pending the appeal to the privy counoil on questions in dispute between the provincial and dominion governments
on fishery matters, which will be
submitted to the full court at the
coming season, and thence taken
to the privy council for final determination.
Instead of a feo of $2.50 payable
by each man in the boat, a license
of $5 will be required for each boat
and net, the licensee being always
a British subject, Thus there will
be no restrictions upon boat-pullers. It is understood that last year
the law was evaded in many instances, and that the new rule will
have a better effect from a treasury point of view.
Again, there will bo no license
demanded from employees in fish
traps, but instead each trap will
pay a license of $25.
The text of the new regulations
follows; it is dated March 10, 1909:
1. In the following regulations
"take salmon" shall mean the taking or catching of salmon by means
of a boat and net, or by fish trap,
and a person shall be deemed to
take salmon and required to obtain
a license under these regulations
who takes salmon by means of a
boat and net, or by means of a fish
trap.
2. No person shall take salmon
of any kind in any of the waters
of this province!unless authorized
bo to do by a license issued under
the provisions of these regulations.
3. No fishery license shall be
granted to any person, unless he
be a British subject and a resident
of the province.
4. A license to take salmon by
means of a fish trap for one year,
from the first day of January until
the 31st day of December may be
obtained from the commissioner of
fisheries, upon payment of a fee
of $25.00.
5. A license to take salmon by
means of a boat and net for one
year, from the first day of January
until the 31st day of December,
may be obtained from the commissioner of fisheries upon payment of
a fee of $5.00.
6. Such a license shall authorize
the licensee to take salmon of the
kind, at the time and in the manner prescribed by the dominion
fishery regulations.
7. A license issued under these
regulations shall be in the form
prescribed from time to time by
the commissioner of fisheries.
8. Any person who shall take
salmon without a license under
these regulations shall be guilty of

Currents Are Traced by Floating Bottles
Ocean currents can be traced by
throwing into the sea at various
points sealed bottles, containing a
record of the date and place at
which they were abandoned, When
these bottles are found or picked
up by ships they furnish data for
the calculation of their probable
course and the time occupied in
making the journey, The United
States hydrographic bureau, for the
purpose of obtaining a number of
such indications from which a general scheme of ocean currents may
be deduced, supplies ship captains
With bottles containing  blanks on
which the date, latitude and longitude of the place are recorded when
thrown overboard.
Tho captain of the Emma Lau-
rans h&B published in the Yacht a
note on the wanderjngs of one of
these bottles thrown overboard by
him March 24, 1906, at 51 �� south
latitude and 48 9 40 min. west longitude, and picked up more than
30 months aftorward on Sept, 2,
1908, near Robe in southern Australia, in about 37 �� south latitude
and 140 * east longitude, It would
bo very interesting to know the
precise route followed by the bottle, but the precise route is never
given by these experiments, If all
captains who find these floating
bottles would set them adrift again
after recording the place and date,
more could be learned of their wanderings and consequently more of
ocean currents,

Reckoning of Time by Julian System Is
Cause of Confusion fn Intercourse \Vitfi
the Outside World
Russia, as all the vyorld knows,
still reckons time by the Julian
Calendar, which is 13 days behind
the Gregorian system, which is
used by all progressive nations.
Thjs difference is ever found an increasing source of trouble in international intercourse, and nine
years ago the Russian public education department appointod a commission to study calendar reform.
The reason why a solution has
not been arrived at is that the
members are divided into three
hostile camps, one scornfully rejecting any idea of alteration, one
in favor of the Gregorian calendar
and the third introducing an entirely new system, Prof. Solodiloff
explains the new system by saying
that the year should begin at the
spring equinox, and the quarters
should be reckoned from the equinoxes and tho solstices, The first
two months of each quarter should
have 30 days and the third 31 day,*.
Thus each quarter would have 91
days, making 364 days in the year,
as the solar year has 365 days 5
hours 48 minutes 49.7 seconds, one
day in the year should simply In-
called New Year's Day, without a
week-day name.
This disposes of the extra day,
leaving the difference at five hours
and the minutes and seconds. This
in four years' time would, less 45
minutes, make an extra day, which
Prof, Solodiloff proposes to call the
"Day-After-New-Year's." The 45
minutes would amount to a day in
128 years, and so the "Day-Aftcr-
New-Year's" should fall out once
in 128 years.
There is still a difference of a
few seconds, but as this docs not
amount to a day once in 5000 years
it may well bo disregarded, Under
this system, the professor explains,
every first day of a quarter would
be a Monday, the first day of the
second month always a Wednesday, and the first day of the third
month always a Friday. It is also
proposed to make Easter, from
which all church festivities arc
reckoned, occur at a fixed date,
which the ecclesiastics are invited
to name.
Shoe Soles Indicate Gharacter
Palmistry, phrenology, graphology and all other methods of judging character seem destined henceforth to take second placo to corth-
urnology ��� the science of worn
boots. ���
According to Dr. Garre of Basle,
France, worn shoes give far more
reliable indications than the lines
of the hand, the features of the face
or the style of the handwriting.
If heel and sole of the shoe are
equally worn after two months' use
the wearer is an energetic business
person, a trusty employee, or an
excellent wife or mother.
If the sole is worn on the outer
edge the wearer has a marked tendency for adventures, or a bold, obstinate spirit.
If the wearing is on the inside
edge it is a sign of irresolution and
weakness in a man and modesty in
a woman.
Dr. Garre has put his view6 to a
practical test, and on one occasion,
having closely watched a stranger
who visited his house, noticed that
his shoes were worn on the outer
edge, the tip of the sole being
roughened while the rest was still
new.
He was convinced that the man
before him was a scoundrel, and
on the very same day the man was
arrested for theft.

Man With Golden Nose Is Dead
Patrick J. Lamphere, known as
"the man with the golden nose,"
because of his acute sense of smell,
whereby he was able to distinguish
the brand and age of any whisky
made in Kentucky, died at' his
home in Lexington of what his
physician terms a broken heart.
Lamphere has been a whisky
salesman for years, and the fact
that practically the solid south and
some northern states as well, have
been struck by the prohibition
wave, and with a good chance that
old Kentucky, the mother of whisky states, will shortly follow suit,
was the direct cause of the heart
wound.
The attending physician says no
particular malady affected him.
On the smell of the remarkable
nose of Lamphere was hinged some
of the biggest whisky deals on record, and because of this wonderful
gift Lamphere amassed a fortune.
His ability to determine the age
and brand of Kentucky whisky resulted in his being sent to the Paris exposition as a representative of
the Bourbon whisky industry.

She nodded and chocked a point

She checked point two,
"I have passed the frivolous age,"
he went on, "and I have the steadfastness and the wisdom to guard

He paused for answer,
