ACQUIRES LARGE TRACT OF LAND
Mr. Ernest Wilbur of the North Coast Com-
mercial Go. Purchases Six Hundred and
Forty Acres of Skeena Valley Land
That Northwest British Columbia, and more particularly the
Skeena river valley, will be the
scene of unusual activity during
the coming summer may be accepted as an assured fact. The
many letters of inquiry received
by The Loyalist of late arc all that
is needed to establish the truth of
the assertion that interest in this
section is growing. The Loyalist
has all along contended that in no
other portion of Canada are there
any more or any better opportunities for a man to acquire a competency than in  British Columbia.
To illustrate what a thorough
practical fanner thinks of Skeena
river valley land, we have only to
call attention to a real estate deal
consummated here the past week,
in which Mr. Ernest Wilbur of the
North Coast Commercial Co. ac
quired title to (140 acres of land in
the Skeena. valley, a short distance
south of the canyon.
Mr. Wilbur, who came to British
Columbia about two mouths ago.
has been, for a number of years,
engaged in farming on an extensive scale in Colorado, and in
every branch of agricultural and
horticultural attainment is an acknowledged authority, No man
is equipped with a more thorough
knowledge of the requirements of
the fanner than is he, and it i�� bis
purpose to submit the land to careful tests to the end that accurate
knowledge may be obtained as to
the particular crops for which it
is best adaptod.
Within a few days Mr. Wilbur
will confer with the departments
of agriculture and horticulture at
Victoria, with a view to enlisting
the aid of the government in the
free distribution of seed to the settlers who are coming in, as is done
in the states, and he will then begin a tour of inspection of the entire valley.
This mode of procedure has never
before been put in operation in this
province, but it is the only way in
which an intelligent idea can be
secured of the possibilities of the
land for fanning, and will to a certainty result in much good to those
already located here as well as
serving as a guide to those who
arc yet to come.
Miss Pauline Johnson Coming
Word has been received here that
Miss Pauline Johnson, whose Indian name is "Tekohionmnkc," the
Mohawk poetess entertainer, with
Walter Rave, Impersonator, in
sketches from Dr. DrutuiuondV
Habitat Folklore Stories of French
Canada, will be here about May 1.
when they will give an entertainment in Cunningham hall.
This will be an excellent opportunity for the tire relief committee
to secure the services of these talented artists  for a benefit night in
aid of the fire engine fund.

Officer Wynn Returns
Prov. Policeman Wynn, who
went to New Westminster two
weeks ago, having in charge an insane man from Prince Rupert
whom he turned over to the officials of the asylum: returned to Essington Saturday On the Princess
May.   Officer Wynii states that the
weather down  below  is  fine and
that everybody is busy.
And that reminds us���he also
said that he would get busy himself in looking into the condition
of things bearing upon local sanitation. Citizens generally are notified that all premises must be
thoroughly cleared up and all rubbish removed Immediately. Officer
Wynn will begin a rigid inspection
of every yard, alley and byway,
so it behooves residents to get a
move on themselves.
LOCAIETTES
Can Buy on the Ground
It has been decided to grant the
people who are already residents of
Prince Rupert an opportunity to
purchase lots in that town without
being put to the expense of going
to Vancouver. While the lot sale
will take place in the southern metropolis, residents of Prince Rupert
may make their selection of locations, which will be noted, and
then may have the privilege of
purchasing them at a price to be
governed by the sale of lots on
either side of their choice; or, in
other words, at an average of the
amount paid for each of the two lots
adjoining the one selected by them.
The above plan was announced
by Manager Chaniberlin of the (I.
T. P. during his recent visit to
Prince Rupert.
Looks Good to Them
J. W. Shumate of Eugene, Ore.,
and Daniel J. Fry of Salem, Ore.,
two prosperous looking gentlemen
on the hunt for land, were registered at the Essington this week.
During their visit they took a short
trip up the river, and so favorably
were they impressed with conditions in the Skeena valley that,
before leaving on the Princess May
Wednesday, they declared it their
intention to shortly return for a
more extended tour of investigation. The report the gentlemen will
make in their home cities will be
of immense value to this country,
and both expressed themselves as
being confident that others could
be induced to accompany them on
their return.
Pneumonia Is Prevalent
There are three cases of pneumonia in town, the patients being Indians. One of the sick men was
a member of the party of Indian
runners who recently brought the
mail overland from the north. The
terrible exposure to which he was
subjected caused an attack of lung
trouble Which developed into pneumonia of a virulent type. Dr. MePhee, who is treating these eases,
reports his patients as on the road
to recovery, however, and the Indian mail runner, whom his companions were compelled to leave
behind when they returned north,
will soon be able   to return home.
The Camosun Takes a Lay-Off
The Camosun will not arrive in
Essington tonight for the reason
that she is taking a lay-off. This
is made necessary in order to blowout her boilers and inspect her machinery.

E. A. Hawley is now stationed
as operator at Aberdeen for a few
weeks.
Additional local matter will be
found on the fourth page of The
Loyalist.
Druggist Mills has been on the
sick list for several days, suffering
with a severe cold.
Another slight fall of the beautiful Thursday. Not enough, however, for sleighing.
A good dentist, one who would
either locate here or make regular
visits to the town, could easily do
some business in Essington.
A number of Indians have arrived in town, having come here
to work in the canneries, all of
which will begin work within a few
weeks.
Many of Essington's citizens
grasped the opportunity afforded
them by the tine weather which
prevailed last Sunday and visited
the springs.
The Sadie Hiltz, the gasoline
launch plying between Essington
and Rupert,is as trim a little craft
as floats, and skims over the water
like a bird.
Will McDonell has grown about
a foot since last Sunday, for he has
at last reached man's estate. He
was 21 years of age on that day.
R. G. Strange, who left Essington March 16 for the Ingenika, has,
according to the Omineca Herald,
at last reached Hazelton, arriving
there April 3.
A blast set off at Bostrom's camp
Thursday afternoon was ahout the
heaviest Essington people have experienced. The concussion was felt
in about every house in town.
The Loyalist learns from the
Omineca Herald, that H. E. Bo-
dine, who left here in February
last, has located and is working
several good mining propositions
up near Hazelton.
Dock Wilbur of the North Coast
Commercial Co., representing the
Fit-Reform of Canada, came over
from Rupert Thursday for a short
visit with his father, Ernest Wilbur, of Essington.

when the  Craigflower will receive

Much Ado About Nothing
Wednesday afternoon Dufferin
street was livelier than usual for
awhile. Men were flying around
in all directions, the Princess May
was held at the wharf for 10 or 15
minutes, and spectators were kept
guessing. Tho cause of all this turmoil was���nothing. A man named
McDonald came in from Dan Stewart's camp with two time checks,
one of which he blew in, the other
he gave to a friend whom he owed
a small sum. As these checks are
not transferable, the man to whom
this one was given signed McDonald's name and a local merchant
cashed it. This was discovered
soon afterward, and the aid of the
police was invoked. The officers
soon straightened out the tangle,
and all was again serene.
Issues 170 Fishing Licenses
Fishery Overseer Helgerson has
issued up to date 170 licenses to
fish in the waters, of the province.
These licenses go to the Claxton,
Cassiar, Cunningham and Balmoral canneries.
Inspector of Fisheries Williams
has telegraphed Mr. Helgerson as
follows:
"Allow spring salmon fishing to
old boundary in Skeena river. No
further instructions relative to fishing regulations."
Previous to receiving this telegram, however, Mr. Helgerson was
instructed to enforce the new regulations governing the fisheries of
the province, which were recently
made to conform to the dominion
regulations in force, the text of
which was published in The Loyalist two weeks ago.

EXECUTIVE ABILITY IS ESSENTIAL
San Francisco is about to invoke
the law o{ "recall" against her
mayor, who, barring that look oi
rascality which is the natural heritage of all of us, is honest enough
for all practical purposes, but who
has been found lacking in that
most essential attribute vulgarly
termed "backbone." Mayor Taylor was wafted into the executive
chair upon a wave of personal popularity which had its origin in the
graft prosecutions begun four years
ago and still ir. progress in that
crime-ridden coast city, and much
was oxpeoted of him. He has, it
will be conceded, done many things
for which he should receive all
praise, but he has left undone
many things which should have
been given official care and attention, and the almost universal
opinion is that his early retirement
from office will be for the best interests of the city.
This is a case which forcibly reminds us of a parallel in the states
during President Harrison's administration, "Corporal" Tanner,
a rough, uncouth ex-soldier, was
appointed U. S. pension commissioner by the president. Tanner
went to Washington, where he reported to Secretary Noble. On entering the secretary's office he found
that gentleman in conversation
with Senator Dan Voorhees, the
"Tall Sycamore of the Wabash."
Tanner rushed up to them and, in
in a loud tone of voice exclaimed:
"Well, here I am ��� come to be
sworn in and qualified."
Senator Voorhees gave him one
look and said:
"The secretary here can swear
you in, but the department of education and all hell couldn't qualify yon." And the senator's estimate of this official misfit, was correct, for Tanner was removed within the year.
Personal popularity is too often
the predominating factor in both
elections and appointments to office
but the fact that executive ability
is quite as essential to the satisfactory administration of official
duties should not be overlooked.
purely. You see the G, T, P., hav-
f ng bought early in the season, finds
itself overstocked, and, in order to
"make room for summer goods,"
are forced to offer as an inducement to bargain hunters, in connection with their clearing sale of
lots, Jagnaippe in the form of continuous sunshine of as fine a brand
as over was put on the market.

In his estimate of the water power
of the dominion, Mr- R. E, Young,
superintendent of dominion railway lands, gives British Columbia
third place, The province of Quebec leads with 17,075,939 horse-
powor, Ontario next with 3,129,11J6,
and British Columbia third, with
2,000,000, while Alberta, Northwest Territories, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick and Nova
Scotia follow in the order given.
Mr. Young estimates the dominion's forest acreage at 100,000.000.
Why struggle for a niche in the
hall of fame? The news dispatches
now speak of ex-President Roosevelt as plain "Col, Roosevelt," very
much as is the custom in Kentucky
of annexing the title "oolonel" to
any and every man who owns a
horse or possegsos an abnormal capacity for booze,

LAND LEASE NOTICE
Mrs. Posey of St. Louis, Mo., is
certainly a far-seeing woman. She
began, on her wedding night, keeping a diary, recording every act of
her husband from the date of her
marriage to O. \V. Posey, son of a
California millionaire, up to two
weeks ago when she began divorce
proceedings against him, and then
sprung it on him at the trial. Any
woman who would tear a poor,
confiding young man away from
the protecting influences of his
home circle, and make him the innocent victim of such a lew down
trick, she���well, she's no gentleman.

E. W. RICHARDS, Prop., (formerly with Ss; Camosun) AMERICAN JURY LAW IS A FARCE
To Qualify as a Juror a Man Must Virtu*
allly Acknowledge to Being an Individual
of a Low Order of Intelligence
The Kansas City (Mo.) Star has
this to say anent the jury law as
it now obtains in the states, and
the criticism i8 most timely, in
view of the recent travesties on
justice which have been witnessed
recently in San Francisco courts.
The Star says:
"Another vivid example of the
law's delays and the absurdities
that attend the criminal law in this
country has just been given in the
Cooper - Sharpe murder trial at
Nashville, Tenn. It has taken 25
days to get a jury, and this apparently simple task was accomplished
only after six special venires with
a total of 3019 men had been summoned, The law made those incompetent who had talked with a
witness to the murder, or talked
with some one who had conversed
with a witness. As if this ridiculous proceeding were not enough,
every one who had read an account
of the case was adjudged incompetent. On the hearing on application for bail of the defendants the
local papers printed stenographic
reports of the testimony. The supreme court decided that a newspaper which printed a verbatim* report of the testimony became, ipso
facto, a witness who had talked to
a witness. Thus everybody in the
county who had road the testimony
became incompetent to serve as a
juror. According to a hair-splitting
supreme court, such a person had
talked to a witness in reading a
newspaper which had printed an
alleged verbatim report of the testimony. This sublime awsiiiinity in
legal procedure eliminated at once
the most intelligent citizens and
put the sheriff on the hunt for Ignorant men who never read newspapers, As a consequence four of
the jurors can neither read nor
write, and two otherB can understand only the simplest English
Words. All but one of the twelve
jurors swore they had not read a
newspaper since the killing of Senator Carmack, and some of them
had not read one ill ten years. The
lone juror who reads newspapers
had been out of the state from the
Week before the killing Until the
day he Was summoned.

"William, dear," called the invalid wife, who was supposed to be
nearing the end of her earthly career.
"Yes, darling," answered the sorrowing husband, "what is it?"
"When I am gone I feel that, for
the sake of the motherless little
ones, you should marry again."
"Do you really think it would be
best, darling?" he tearfully asked.
"Yes, William, I really do," she
replied. After a reasonable time
you should seek the companionship of some good woman."
"Do you know, my dear," said
William, "that you have lifted a
great burden from my mind? Now,
there is that charming little Widow
Jones across the way; she has been
rather friendly with me since you
were taken ill. Of course, dear,
she could never fill your place,
but she is young, plump and pretty
and would do her best to lessen the
pangs of grief���"
"Will-yum Henry Brown!" exclaimed the female whose days were
supposed to be numbered, "If you
ever dare think to install that redheaded, pie-faced, knock-kneed hussy in my shoes, I'll���I'll���Wow!"
and then she fainted. Next day
Mrs. Brown was bossing the household as usual.

Of Interest to Snippers
Messrs, Morrow & Frizzoll are
in receipt of the following letter
from the Hudson's Bay Co,, together with tariff for 1909, which
will be of interest to shippers;
"Dear Sirs:���In view of develop-
ments at Prince Rupert it will be
necessary to go to that point, but
calls will be mado at Essington
regularly by both boats, both ways,
so that freight from your port will
receive  proper  and   prompt care.
It is of course uncertain when
navigation will open, but it is intended Ibat the Hazleton will make
a trij) as far as Copper River or
Kitselas Canyon before proceeding
to Hazelton, and that for her first
trip to Hazelton she will load at
Port Essington. Shippers will be
required to furnish bills of lading
upon the company's forms for shipments originating at Port Essington. A book of forms is mailed to
you. For shipments from Victoria
or Vancouver shippers are asked to
send copies of ocean steamer's bills
of lading showing the gross weights
of each line, this bill of lading being forwarded by the vessel carrying the goods. If these arrangements arc carried out, it will be
more satisfactory to you and to the
company. I shall be glad if you
will let me know by return mail it'
there is any freight now at Port
Essington for upriver points; if so.

"Citizen" Has a Say
To tho Editor of The Loyalist;
I am glad to see the improvement in things about town, and in
a few days it will be a pleasure to
walk around Essington, as by that
time the sidewalks will lie finished,
and this assures safety to our limbs,
but what about health conditions?
Is it not possible to have the garbage removed from the streets and
alleys and after this is done to enforce the health act to the letter?
If I mistake not it is unlawful to
deposit such material as can be
seen laying around the town. We
have a health oilicer, and every
constable is by virtue of his office
an inspector; then why not get to
work and clean up. It is hoped
that when the new cabins have
been built proper sanitary arrangements will be made.       Citizen.

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
T
HESE are but a part of the Fit-Reform fashions for 1909, but they
give a good idea of tho taste and originality of the Fit-Reform
designers. It may be that wo 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 bring to our attention any garment bearing thin trademark wbich 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
as though the Fit-Reform remitation dependcj on those individual garments. From the time the cloth goes to the cutters until the garments
are ready to try on, every stage of the making is carefully watched.
When the completed garments leave the last tnilors, skilled experts examine every detail of workmanship to make doubly sine that each garment is worthy of bearing tho 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 a man
gets bettor 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 tho added pleasure of having garments ready to try on, alterations made if necessary
and the perfect fitting suit or overcoat delivered the same day it is ordered.    This no slight convenience to the busy business man.
