fIVE OCEAN VESSELS COME IN
Wharf Presents a Busy Appearance Tuesday. When Essington Is Visited by Five
Liners and One River Steamer Same Day
On last Tuesday Essington people witnessed a scene which was
certainly calculated to make a person feel good, and one that, in the
recollection of the "oldest habitant," never before happened.
Five big ocean-going vessels and
one big river steamer discharging
passengers and freight at the wharfs
all at the same time, looks like
there was something doing up here,
and there is, too,
The Princess May, Amur, Princess Ena, Coquitlan and St, Denis,
and the Skeena formed the fleet
that arrived Tuesday, and things
were humming about the wharf
for quite awhile.
The May was here for over an
hour, en route to Skagway, and
while she was discharging freight
for this port many of her passengers passed the time pleasantly in
strolling about town, viewing the
pretty scenery hereabouts; for Essington's location is surely an attractive spot, nestled down among
the high hills, with which she is
surrounded, and which arc just
now taking on their bright green
hues, certainly no prettier site can
be found in the northwest,
Essington is also a place where
more actual business is transacted
than at any other point between
Vancouver and Sitka, and her mercantile interests arc on a firm and
solid basis. Her river trade during
the open season furnishes business
for the large fleet of steamers plying between this port and Hazelton. This is but the natural result of her location, and from which
she has earned the title of "Gateway to Skeena Trade," The large
number of settlers, all ofthe sturdy
farmer class, that is coming into
the Skeena valley will stilt further
enhance Essington's trade, which
will redound to the benefit and advantage of the farmers as well as
to local merchants and local business institutions. A readv market
for all the products of the farm or
truck garden can be found here in
Essington, and no more advantageous spot in British Columbia or
the northwest can be found than
Is encompassed by the Skeena river
Valley, the development of which
has only just begun.
Will Establish a Hotel In the North
A. R. McDonald of the Alberta
hotel, Victoria, Who, for the past
two weeks, has been Visiting old acquaintances here, left for upriver
points Friday. Mr. McDonald is
a veteran in the hotel business, and
no man possesses a more extended
acquaintance with the traveling
public, or is equipped with a more
thorough knowledge of all that
goes to make for the comfort of his
guests.
Recognizing the fact that British
Columbia is How filling up with a
fine class of settlers, and that the
dawn of what will be an unprcce-
. dented era of prosperity for this
country is awakening, Mr. McDonald will establish himself in the
hotel business in the borth. He
will go to Aldermereand from that
point Will determine his location.

Hatchery Has Good Season
T. Whittvell, in charge of the dominion hatchery at   LakclUe hike,
75 miles north of Essington, came
down the river, arriving here Saturday noon. Mr. Whitwell made
the trip in a canoe, and was accompanied by his son Stanley, J.
B. Johnson and G. Kelly, who have
been working with him at the
hatchery.
Mr. Whitwell states that they
began spawning August 6 last, collecting 4,848,000 sockeye eggs, and
finished this work August 30.
Between April 9 and 13, inclusive, he liberated 4,300,000 young
fry in splendid condition, and, taking the season all through, it has
been the most satisfactory of any
in the seven years of Mr. Whit-
well's connection witRthe hatchery.
Beautify the Main Street
Dufferin street residents and merchants should see to it that that
thoroughfare is made more attractive thissummer than it is at present.
The stranger coming up from the
wharf gets his first view of the
town on Dufferin street, and these
first views give birth to impressions that may warrant either favorable  or unfavorable comment.
Robt. M. Bums, who with his
family has recently taken up his
residence in the Cunningham house
on Dufferin, has taken the initiative in this direction, and has begun to prepare the grounds about
his residence for flower beds. The
canvas covered shed in the rear of
the premises has been removed,
and the old tennis court will be
revived.
For the glory of Essington, let
others along this street enter into
the spirit of adorning their premises with like enthusiasm.
Rankin Is Held for Trial
Constable Jack Monroe came up
on the May Tuesday, having in
custody P. Rankin, whom he arrested in Vancouver on the arrival
of the May there last Saturday.
Rankin is charged with forgery,
having signed another man's name
to a time check which was cashed
by a local merchant.
It seems that The Loyalist was
given a wrong version of the affair
last Wednesday when the act was
committed, but its information was
derived from what we considered
a reliable source.
The details as given The Loyalist were that a man named McDonald came to town with two
time checks, one of which he blew
in, and meeting Rankin, to whom
it was alleged he owed money, gave
him the other to get cashed. These
checks are not transferable, and in
order to get the money Rankin
signed McDonald's name and. cashed it at a local store,
At the trial of Rankin, however.
which Was held before Justice Bail-
lie Wednesday! McDonald denied
having given the check to Rankin,
and the hitter Was remanded for a
hearing before Judge Young at
Prince Rupert,

The Sadie Hiltz made a trip up
the Skeena Wednesday.
Seven Scandinavians have signified their intention of becoming
British subjects the past week.
The strong wind that prevailed
Wednesday sent the white caps
bobbing around here in the harbor
in grent shape.
Another big consignment of machinery whs unloaded from the Ena
Tuesday, all of which goes to the
Skeena River sawmill.
Mr. and Mrs. Robert M. Burns
have taken the Cunningham house
on Dufferin street, having removed
there Monday of this week.
The Essington league season has
opened; Jack Halley says so, and
he knows. He now has Dune McMillan in training for the sockeye
juniors.
Foreman MePhee has about finished planking Dufferin street. It
will, when completed, have a solid,
well built walk from one end to
the other.
J. H. Hodder, who has been absent in the east since last fall, returned to Essington this week and
on Tuesday departed for Bulkley
valley, where he will locate.
Ed Sundberg left Tuesday morning for a canoe trip up the Skeena.
He will go as far as Copper river,
and look over the country for a
good spot in which to settle down,
The Chieftain, R. Cunningham
A Son's neat river craft, has arrived from Vancouver, where she
has been undergoing repairs. She
is now ready1 for the summer's
work.
Miss Loudon, housekeeper at the
Essington hotel, had the misfortune to lose a sunburst pin, Wednesday. It was lost between the
hotel and the residence of Robt. M.
Burns on Dufferin street. Finder
please return to the hotol office.
Wednesday morning A. J. Hig-
gins and A. J. Sweeney of Portland,
Ore., two young men who have
been stopping at the Essington for
the past week, started up the river
in a canoe with Hazelton as their
objective point, They will eventually locate in the north.
The Loyalist would like to call
attention to the fact that in some
branches of business money is an
indispensable factor, We say in
some branches, not all, for happily
the newspaper man is free ttnd exempt from any taint of a sordid
nature in conducting his business.
He just simply hasn't any use for
money, for his work is a labor of
love. The Lord will look out for
him, for all time to come.

Saturday Was Unlucky Day
Last Saturday waS certainly an
unlucky day in the railroad camps
near Essington. when three accidents occurred, one of tlicm reuniting in death, While one man had his
left foot badly crushed and another
had his eyes burnt with powder.
While preparing ft blast lip at
Smith's No. 2 camp, a premature
explosion burned the face of a Swedish workman so severely that his
eyesight is despaired ol.
Wm. Tteston, another employe
of No, 2, had a foot crushed by a
'block of stone fulling  on it.    He
j whs brought in Sunday and the in
jured member was dressed by Dr.
T. if. MePhee.
John Albi's camp, above Aberdeen, was the scene of the fatality.
While four men were on their way
to work, in descending a bluff on
the river the dirt began sliding,
causing them to Iofc their footing,
and three of them were precipitated into the river. Two of the
men managed, to reach shore in
safety, but Vomer Anderson, who
was thrown out into the swiftly
running current, was drowned.
Search was immediately made for
the body, giant powder and dynamite being employed to raise it,
but all to no avail. It is thought
that the swift undercurrent lias
carried the bodv  far out of reach.
Pioneer Prospector Here.
Chas. McKinnon, one of the oldest, if not the oldest, mining men
in the province, from the view of
continuous residence, came down
from the Omineca country last Saturday and is visiting old acquaintances and old scenes in and about
Essington.
Mr. McKinnon has been in the
Omineca country for many years,
where he has several good paying
placer claims. He tells The Loyalist that a number of men have
gone into that country of late, and
all are doing well.
The Kildare Mining Co. recently
took on 30 men, all of whom were
put to work in mines controlled by
the company.
Mr, McKinnon is located on
Manson's creek, about ltio miles
distant, and. expressed bis belief
that the country in his immediate
vicinity was as rich in mineral as
can be found anywhere. It is rapidly filling up, and this summer will
see much development work done.
Leg Is Broken
Joseph Messenger, watchman at
the Balmoral cannery, came over
to Essington Wednesday, and on
Thursday morning while engaged
in watching the workmen who are
repairing the Cunningham wharf,
stepped on a defective piece of timber which broke with his weight,
throwing him to the ground and
breaking the small bone of his right
leg. He was taken to Dr. T. J.
MePhee's office, Where the fracture
was reduced.
Capture Their Man
Prov. Policeman Wynn, on word
from Hazleton, has been on the
lookout for a man named Harmon,
who escaped frcyu the Hazelton jail
on the 12th. Yesterday morning
about 1 o'clock he rounded Up his
man and arrested him near the B.
& A. cannery.
When surprised by the officers
Harmon had a load of booze' which
he was carrying to ��>me Indians
who were awaiting him on the river
in a canoe, witli whom he met up
at Kitwangaw. He will be returned
to Haselton.

" SOUTHERN CHIVALRY "
For some years the editor of The
Loyalist lived and worked in the
Southern States, and in Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama. Kentucky
and Louisiana is he thoroughly acquainted with the characteristics
of the people, their peculiarities,
fads, etc., and in nothing docs a
Georgian or Kentuckian pride himself more, when lie can engage the
attention of an audience, than in
his boasted "chivalry." To hear
him enlarge upon the heroic spirit
with which he is imbued would
throw the "days when knighthood
was in flower" away back in the
tall timber. During our labors in
the south, however, we read much,
heard more, and saw less of this
"chivalrous spirit" than one can
witness among a gang of Zulus.
As a curtain-raiser on the true
conditions in Southern States generally, and Georgia in particular,
we ask Loyalist readers to digest
the following and reconcile, if they
can, the Georgian's claim to his
"chivalrous" heritage with the outrage perpetrated by a court of "justice"  upon  an   unfortunate  white
girl:
Athbns, (Ia., April 10.���Con vie ted of being an
"undesirable," Kate o'liwyer. a handsome
young white woman, has been sent lo I lie county chain gang and is now serving with negroes.
Bupt, Kelly admits be Iihs placed irons on the
girl, and that She is foreed to sleep in shackles,
lie also admits she Is Chained with negroes. II
was lielicved after I be exposure of convict horrors before the legislature last summer Unit ill
least, a little humanity would bo shown In
Georgia Damps, but the ease of Miss O'Dwyer
indicates that the .old system prevails.
Here is duplicity, brutality and
arrar.t cowardice unmasked. It is
difficult for one to believe that men
who could countenance such an
outrage upon a poor, helpless girl
were ever horn of woman, and until The Loyalist lias more convincing proof than it now possesses
that they are the legitimate offspring of woman, it will continue
to doubt it.
Here in the Twentieth Century,
an age with its flaunted intelligence, advancement, and enlightenment, we have the living evidence
of an existing order in Georgia's
social fabric that would, for very
shame, drive a Skeena river wharf
rat to hide its pestiferous presence
from the light of day forever.
In Kentucky, too, we have this
"chivalrous spirit" in large sized
bunches. A state where men lay
in ambush and shoot down defenseless women as they walk along the
road. The cowardly murder of
Gov. Goebel is still fresh in the
minds of the people, and it is safe
to say that no man was ever killed
in the state of Kentucky who ever
had the ghost of a show to defend
himself from his assassin.
The cowardly tactics of the so-
called "night-riders," who go about
masked and hi gangs after dark,
assaulting men and women against
whom they may have sonic fancied
grievance, is typical of the Kentucky brand of "chivalry."
In Arkansas, where peonage is
in force and tacitly endorsed by
the "flower of Southern knighthood"; where white men are sold on
the block to contractors, and condemned to long terms of servitude
for trivial offenses which, in an en
lightened community, would entail
a small fine or he passed up altogether, we have still another brand
of "chivalry."
Volumes could be written on the
flagrant, cowardly abuses in practice in the Southern States, and
upheld by a class who point with
pride to their illustrious ancestors,
and regard themselves as having
been made of a quality of clay superior to that of the ordinary run
of humanity. But a class of people who, to establish their own respectability and worth, must, per
force, dig deep into the graves of
their ancestors, have very little to
commend them to the consideration of people with a high concep-
liiin of the laws of humanity, and
Georgia must not expect to occupy
a very exalted position in the estimation (if the world until proof
that she has ceased chaining white
girls to negroes is produced.

the mark!

the proceedings were Admiral Lord
Charles Beresford, Prince Louis of
Batten berg, Lord Curzon, Sir Hiram Maxim and Admiral Sir Percy
Seott, all of whom heartily supported energetic action. Admiral
Scott advocated a new two-power
standard in airships as well as in
Dreadnoughts, and mentioned incidentally that the navy has designed a gun which, at a distance
of 6000 feet, would be exceedingly
destructive to airships.
GLASSES ARE BECOMING POPULAR
Head of London Firm Declares That Business Concerns Prefer Men in Their Off-
ices Who Wear Glasses
Spectacles, which used to be considered a drawback in business life,
have now actually become a valuable asset to those pursuing commercial careers.
Inquiry among a number of employes disclosed the fact that on
the whole the heads of firms were
in favor of the bespectacled man,
whom they considered cheerier,
more alert and more attentive to
business.
Serious, thoughtful eyes behind
a pair of thin spectacle glasses create confidence, as does the merry
twinkling of these same eyes when
the spectacled worker interviews
his employer or his caller.
At one time the business man who
had passed middle life looked upon
the adoption of spectacles as one of
those little tragic incidences that
marked the beginning of his decline and fall.
The young woman thought of
spectacles with a shudder. To her
it seemed the death knell of all
prospects of happiness.
But today the wearers of eyeglasses may be assured they are
highly valuable in commercial circles. They can work longer without fatigue, for they endure none
of the headaches that are the portion of many of their coworkers,
Who suffer without knowing it from
eye strain and consequent depres'
sion.
"Spectacles ure certainly more
of an advantage than the reverse
in human life." said an experienced
optician; "many very ordinary looking men present a much more distinguished appearance in pince-nez
Or spectacle's than they do without
them. Of course, an employe! may
be prejudiced against an applicant
for a position who presents a goggle-eyed appearance in the old
fashioned, lieavy-rinilneil specs of
Our grandfathers.
"Nowadays the smartest pince-
nez are quite rimless, and almost
invisible, so they do not at all detract from the yotithfulnesfl or the
beauty of a woman who liml& it
necessary to wear them,

" Please Lift me Out, the Thorns Hurt"
'I'llis story of the queen of Holland is going the rounds of Europe:
When her majesty was a little
girl she was not often seen in the
company of her father, owing to
his resentment of the fact that a
son had not been born to him. Little Wilhelniina's mother was much
distressed at this, and thought of a
novel plan to win the king's favor
for his little girl. One morning at
breakfast as he leaned over to smell
a large bank of roses that covered
ihe center of the table, a baby face
peeped out and a baby voice said:
"Ob, papa,please lift me out of the
(lowers, the thorns hurt me!" It
was little Wilhelmina, and from
that moment the king's heart softened and tin1 young princess became a great pet with her father.
Lieut, Shackelford has planted
be British flag within 111 miles
if the south pole.

[Communicated]
A Remonstrance
To the Bdltol of The Loyalist;
An attempt has heon made to
throw cold water on Essington by
creating the impression that passengers for upriver points could
best consult their convenience by
shipping from Prince Rupert and
ignoring this port.
Why, sir. E'ssington is the natural
gateway trf all points up tho Skeena river, and is the safest and most I pleasure
Fit-Reform Styles Spring and Summer 1909 SEE OUR LINE OF LADIES' FURNISHINGS
Have you seen the window display of Canada's most popular styles in
Men's Suits at the Fit-Reform Wardrobe that wiil be
worn by good dressers this Spring
direct route. In coming to this
port  both  passengers  ami freight
are shipped direct, where, if they
go to Rupert (o ship up the river
from southern points they must
travel 35 miles for nothing, as all
vessels from the south touch here
before going to Rupert, which is 85
miles from the Skeena route,
Hut the scheme is easily seen
through. It is an attempt of lirit-
ish Columbia's marine octopus to
drive the old-time river men out of
the trade; hut Port Essington's
ability to give Skeena river traffic
all conveniences for quick and safe
passage is too firmly established to
be seriously interfered with by a
line which plies boats about two
months in the year.    EtlVERMAN.
When you think of boots, think
of McArthur's Emporium.
Will Confer on Fishery Matters
Prof. Prince of the marine ami
fisheries department at Ottawa, has.
gone to San Francisco, where he
will confer with the American fishery commissioner, Starr .Ionian.
concerning international questions
bearing on fishing on the Pacific
coast. He will return in about
two weeks, when the result of the
conference will   be Hindi  public.
Have your shoes repaired neatly
at Shade's shoe shop, opp. postoffice,
The large number of arrivals ol
late indicate that EsBillgton is still
in the public eye.
Fit-Reform
A visit to the Pit-Reform Wardrobe will convince one of the superiority of these genuine hand-tailored garments over the ordinary
ready-made clothes.
Fit.Reforni leads, others try to
imitate. Spring 1909 styles just
in. North ('oast Commercial Co.,
Limited.
The Bateman came in Wednesday morning from Swanson's bay
and discharged a number of passengers for upriver ports.
THESE are but a part 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 be that we have nut. shown just the style that appeals t" you. We have some that will, be sme of that, and will gladly
show then) when you call. It is always a pleasure" to demonstrate the
superiority of Fit-Reform garments. We trust you will give us this
soon. The Fit-Reform trademark carries with it the strongest
uaranteu ever given with a suit or overcoat, it not only says "money
back if satisfaction be not given,''but (be 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 this trademark which may not come up to
Ihe 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 Kit-Reform reputation depended on those individual garments. From the time the cloth goes to the cultci's until the garments
are ready to try on, every stage of the making is carefully watched. |
When the completed garments leave the hist tailors, skilled experts examine every detail of workmanship to make doubly sure that each garment is worthy of bearing 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 a man
gets better value for the money in these garments than lie can get at a
tailor's. Aside from the greater variety to choose from ami the Fit-
Ueforin trademark to guarantee satisfaction, there is the 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. ���
