VICTORIA DAY DANCE
WAS LARGELY ATTENDED
PORT SIMPSON AND PRINCE RUPERT ARE
WELL REPRESENTED
All In Attendance Spend a Most Enjoyable Evening. Dancing Being Indulged
In Until Four in the Morning
On last Monday Victoria Day
was pretty generally observed by
Essington's people, and a happy
holiday was spent Ivy all. But by
far the most thoroughly enjoyable
portion of the programme was reserved for the closing of the day's
festivities. This was the dunce,
given by the ladies, at Cunningham
hall. The affair first scheduled
was a btisket social, in which each
lady was to prepare a basket of
lunch, these baskets to bo sold to
the highest bidder, the revenue derived from this stile to be turned
into the fire fund.
At the last moment, however,
the basket idea was abandoned,
and the function resolved itself into one of those purely social gatherings, with dancing and the mutual exchange of hearty good will
which have characterized the winter's entertainments given by Essington's ladies, and which bus
made them so deservedly popular.
And last Monthly night's guests
were in no wise disappointed. For
in addition to a full attendance of
Essingtonians, the occasion was
graced by the presence of a number
of guests from Prince Rupert and
Fort Simpson, who arrived on the
Chieftain and Native in the early
evening. All had a delightful time,
the dancing being kept up until-J
o'clock in the morning.
Geo. Frizzell, assisted by A. L,
McHugh, had charge of the floor.
and these two gentlemen were unremitting in their efforts to see that
everybody enjoyed themselves.
The ladies were, fit the very last
moment, made aware of the fuel
that one of the musicians, who had
promised them his services, would
not be present, but, while this inconvenienced them for the moment, when the matter was explained to the guests the difficulty
was soon bridged by a number of
the ladies nnd gentlemen coming
forward and generously offering
their services. This volunteer music was both given nnd accepted
with a hearty good will, and was
all the more appreciated by the
dancers, when it became known
that the ladies who arranged the
affair had bad their plans so unceremoniously interfered with.
Ninety dollars was the amount
realized from the sale of tickets,
and this neat sum was supplemented by donations received by
Mrs. Frizzell from the following
gentlemen: Capt. Saunders of the
Camosun, $15; Alex Yule of Prince
Rupert, $10; Geo. Buttimer of the
Carlysle cannery, $10. R. J. McDonell gave the use of the hall to
the ladies free of any chnrge, as he
has done on previous occasions
in which the ladies have been interested, and they desire to express
their high appreciation and thanks
to the above named gentlemen, as
well as to all who so generously
responded with their cash and the
timely tenders of assistance.
Mrs, Ernest Wilbur, Miss Arm-
Strong, Messrs. King, Rood and
Wilbur were among the volunteers
Who supplied the music for the
dancers, and   Mrs,   Frizzell,  who
took a leading part in arranging
the affair, desires to extend to the
above named, ladies and gentlemen
the hearty thanks of the committee for the timely assistance rendered , ud for the genuine spirit of
generosity which prompted it.

Sunday Trip Up the Skeena
Last Sunday afternoon, through
the courtesy of Capt, Whidden. a
party comprising Mrs. Robt. M.
Burns and son Clarence, with his
chum Fiji, Mr. and Mrs, James
McCorvie, Mrs. R. H. Jordan, Miss
Loudon, Arthur Leverett and the
Loyalist were given a delightful
outing on the river aboard the Sadie Hiltz. The route lay up the
river, touching at the different
camps on the* line of the construction work, extending as far as McLeod's camp, about 26 miles from
Essington, The day was all that
could be desired, and the Sadie
Hiltz tiew through the water like a
thing of life. She is certainly a
trim launch. Her cabin is roomy
and commodious, being fitted with
all conveniences, neatly furnished
and upholstered, and she has her
own dynamo for generating electric light for illuminating the craft.
Besides all these commendable feat-
ures,slie possesses the essential quality of speed, which is certainly to
be reckoned with if one desires "to
get there."
Interest in the trip was h< ight-
eued by the scenery along the river.
The bright and vari-colored hues
of green, purple and ycl'ow, backed
by the snow-capped peaks, with
the clear blue sky as a background
to all, the beauties of which being
eiilitinced by the brilliant rays of
sunshine playing upon tlr'ni as the
breeze gently swayed them, was
certainly a pretty sight, and The
Loyalist extends the thanks of the
entire party to Capt, Whidden for
the glorious ride.
Chinaman Gets Excited
The chimney in a Chinaman'*
shack down near the wharf caught
lire Tuesday, and the way that
chink threw language around was
enough to put out the fire in the
boilers of the .May. "Mucka-hi's"
flew about as thick as flies around
,i molasses barrel, and when the
fire had burned the soot out of the
chimney the Chinaman collapsed
with the remark: "Alicesame hell!
You saiie 'em hell, no?"
First Couple Married in Kitsumkslum
Mr. and Mrs. Listrum are here
from Kitsunikalum, where they
were married last week, and are
now enjoying their honeymoon.
This popular young couple enjoy
the distinction, the proud distinction, of being the first couple to be
married in Kitsunikalum. Rev. T.
J. Marsh tied the nuptial knot.
Card of Thanks
Gus Erickson, whose two brothers were drowned Last Saturday,
desires, through The Loyalist, to
express his thanks to all who so
kindly came to his aid and rendered such timely assistance in
his sorrowful task, and especially
is he grateful to the men of the
different camps, and to the Essington hotel management.

on the Hazelton, fell from the upper deck of the steamer Sunday, as
she was making her landing at

The men were standing close to the

TWO MEN ARE DROWNED
IN THE SKEENA SATURDAY
PLEASURE PARTY RUNS BOAT ON THE
ROCKS WHEN CRAFT CAPSIZES
Bodies of the Two Brothers Are Brought
to Essington, Where Funeral
Services Are Held
On last Saturday afternoon about
4 o'clock eight men���Vina Oak of
this place, Olaf Skillum, Mike Gil-
bertson, Thorkild, Oscar and Gus
Erickson, Charles Eck and Alfred
Anderson, all construction men,
except Oak, started from Essington for the hot spring in a sail boat.
None of the men knew the river,
neither were any of them experienced in handling a sail boat, especially difficult on the Skeena
even for one acquainted with its
treacherous eddies and currents.
They met with no difficulty for the
first two miles, when their sail became unmanageable, and they resorted to the oars. When about a
half mile from the spring the boat
was pulled ashore and Otis Erickson and Anderson got out to walk
to their destination. They had not
proceeded far when the party in the
boat struck upon a rock. One of
the men got up and began to rock
the boat in the endeavor to dislodge it, The boat gave a sudden
lurch under pressure of the force
exerted in rocking it, capsized and
the six men wore thrown into tho
water
Eck, who is a good swimmer,
succeeded in reaching the shore,
but the two Erickson boys went
down like a shot, and never were
seen again until their bodies wore
found Sunday morning locked in
each other's arms.
When the accident occurred, J.
L. Boyle and Hugh Doyle were
cutting wood a short distance from
the river, and, jumping in their
skiff went to the assistance of tho
three men clinging to the upturned
boat. After much difficulty they
succeeded in bringing them ashore,
but it was at the risk of their own
lives that this was accomplished,
for it was a fight from start to finish to prevent the men in the water from swamping their skiff, so
frantic were the efforts of each to
get in first. Messrs. Boyle and
Doyle certainly deserve all praise
for their heroic work, especially
when the difficulties they were
forced to combat are taken into
consideration,
The bodies of the two brothers
were brought to town and prepared
for burial Monday. Caskets were
procured ami the funeral was held
from Cunningham hall Wednesday
morning, Rev. Kushbrook delivering the sermon.
The remains were conveyed to
the burial ground followed by a
large concourse composed of construction men from the different
camps, among whom over $200
were raised with which to defray
the expenses of the burial.
When news of the accident was
brought to town the Sadie Hiltz
was laying at anchor here, and
Capt. Whidden immediately tendered the use of bis ouat and crew
to the  officers,   who   were  soon at
the scent,' ui the drowning.
Charles Barnes on Monday sent
up f.mr large balloons from different points in Essington, which
were objects of considerable' interest
to people on the street.-.. The Port Essington Loyalist I ;;|;er ad-ini��teri"g sundry and

H. H. Rogers, the multimillionaire member of the Rockefeller
group of financiers, died, at his
home in New York city, on Tuesday of last week. The career of
Mr. Rogers, his business career,
began behind the counters of his
father's country store in New Bedford, Mass. Later on, when the oil
excitement broke out in Pennsylvania, young Rogers became interested in oil lands.
Rockefeller, recognizing that capital without brains to back it was
useless, was, about the time of the
appearance of Rogers on the horizon, endeavoring to surround himself by men with business ideas
that would dovetail in with his
own preconceived plans for effecting a consolidation of all the oil
interests. His eye alighted on II.
H. Rogers and his opinion was that
Rogers was the man he wanted.
That Rockefeller's judgment was
good has been borne out by the unparalleled career of the man of his
choice, for Rogers became not only
a wurking member of the Standard
Oil company, but the director-general, the brain force in all the immense deals of the concern,
Rockefeller, who Is over 70, is
said to be failing In health, and as
he has but one son, who has devoted his life to singing psalms and
indulging in empty stock phrases,
which are pronounced "gems of
thought" by the army of parasites
that kow-tow to the heir to millions, and as a probable successor
to his father is hot to be considered. Rogers sons have each lei
a  butterfly
said: "Mr. Warner, I've decided to
enlist in the arm}'. Mr. Warner
replied that he was glad to see that
the man felt the call to duty. "Oh,
it isn't that, but I'd rather be shot
than try to set tiny more of your
copy."���Winnipeg Post.
When you think  of boots, think
of McArthur's Emporium.
 �� ��� .	
"Deduction is an interesting process," declared the youth to his
father. "For example, there is a
heap of ashes in the yard; that is
evidence that the family has lately
had fire." "Well, son," said his
father, "suppose you pursue your
studies a little farther, and go out
and sift the evidence."
0. A. Ragstad, the jeweler, is at
present located in the building adjoining McArthur's Emporium,
where he will carry on business until a more suitable building is
erected near bis old stand.
"Did that clairvoyant tell you
anything about yourself?" "She
certainly did. Before I had been
there ton minutes she told me
some one was trying to get my
money." "And wps there?" "Yes,
she was."

RAINBOW TROUT IS GRATEFUL
After Three Years Fish Proves Its Gratitude for Timely Assistance
Rendered
That a rainbow tront has a memory and that a fish will seek medicinal waters when sick, was amply demonstrated at Hot .Springs.
Arkansas, the other day by an occurrence that would have provoked
doubt were it not for tlie extraordinary proof attached to the incident.
Three years ago Barney McGee,
one of the best known railroad
men in the west, was visiting.tln"
springs, Buffering from rheumatism, Several days after reaching
here he was walking along the
bank of the river sonic distance he-
low the springs, when he noticed a
large rainbow tront near the bank.
McCce watched the tront for sonic
time, then cautiously went nearer
the water. The trout looked ;it
McGee, and he stooped down anil
picked it up, the fish giving but ;i
feeble resistance, More in humor
than in seriousness, McGee declared when he reached the hotel
that the fish was suffering from tin
same complaint as himself and he
would put it in a bath tub am!
have its rheumatism driven from
its tail and fins He put it in warm
sulphur water and for three days
fed it on worms which he dug nonr
by. The trout seemed to recognize
its benefactor, and much to the
surprise of every one was able on
the third day to /lash around the
tub with itll the speed of a shy
trout.
Having formed an nttachmenl
for the fish, McGee decided to jml
it in the river again, but before
doing so secured a line piece of silver wire which he carefully wrapped around its tail.
A few weeks ago McGee returned
to the springs, and taking a daily
Walk along the river bank, be was
astonished to see a big fish within
ten feet of where he stood, Mr;
McGee reached down and pulled it
out. ft was not until lie was Hearing the hotel to again do the good
Samaritan act, believing the fish
had rheumatism, when he was
dumbfounded to see a wire on its
tail, discolored by the long immersion in Water. McGee recalled the
incident again, and several men
Who were here three years ago remembered the occurrence. The
fish was put in a warm bath, and
is again able to Use its fl/i and tail
and was liberated after a cure had
been pronounced.

It Wasn't a Square Deal
It seems that there was a misinterpretation of tlie telegram received here Friday, of last week,
concerning tho movements of the
steamer Port Simpson. The Loyalist announced that "the Hazelton would arrive at Essington on
the afternoon of Friday, and the
Simpson will follow in three or
four days." The Simpson came in
the same evening, shortly after the
Hazelton.
This was dead wrong. When
The Loyalist said that "the Simpson would follow the Hazelton in
three or four days" the responsibility for the arrival of the Simpson was shifted to the shoulders of
Capt. Jackman, and he should have
waited three or four days before
coming in. Capt. Jackman ignored The Loyalist entirely in the
matter. Acting on the friendly advice of Geo.  Frizzell, however, we
kept out of sight of the' captain.

SEE OUR LINE OF LADIES' FURNISHINGS
That the Ladies of Essington fully appreciate the importance of a well-equipped Millinery Establishment right
here at home, is evidenced by the liberal patronage which
"The Iiest-a- While Store" has received. We have endeavored to merit it, and we think we have.
In addition to our superbly outfitted Millinery Department the ladies
of Essington and vicinity will find a newly selected stock of Women'B
Furnishings embodying all the latest patterns and designs in Silk and
Net Waists, Costumes, Cravenettes and Raincoats, etc., and to which
we call special attention.
