A
NEW BUSINESS FIRM FOR THE PORT
Two of Essington's Well Known Young
Men Will Open a Store- in the
Jackson Building
Messrs. Walter Nod and R. \V.
Ward, two of Essington's popular
young gentlemen,  both of whom
have been connected with the linn
of It. t;. Cunningham & Sou for
several years, have resigned their
positions and will embark in mercantile business for themselves.
On Wednesday Messrs. Noel ami
Ward left on the Rupert City for
Vancouver, where they go to select
their stock, which will consist in
part of clothing, gouts'furnishings,
���etc., with a general merchandise
line. The iiriii will occupy the
large store-room in the Jackson
building on Dufferin street, ami
be ready for business in a short
time.
These gentlemen have been identified, in different capacities, with
the business life of Esshigton for
so long a time that they need no
formal introduction to the public.
and no two men stand higher in!
the estimation of their fellow-citizens.
The Loyalist joins with their
many friends in wishing Ihc new
firm all the good luck imaginable
in their mercantile career.
Was a Delightful Outing
On last Saturday a merry "Ma\
Day" party of young ladies wen
given a delightful rule on the rivei
by Rev. Mv. Rushbrnok and Glydi
Hunter in tlie former's launch
The destination of tin: party \v:i
the hot spring, near Aberdeen,
about a iwo-holii's' ride from Es
eington. Arriving there, a ram bit
on shore was indulged in for awhilt
when they were again taken aboan.
and started for the return, while tin
hills echoed and re-echoed will:
tho merry peals of laughter and
happy song as the boat glided
homeward,
Tho following young ladies, with
their chaperon, Miss Tranter, composed the jolly party: Misses Ernn
Maahs, Frieda Maahs, Reta Dean
Maggie Noel, Mary Wilson, Violet
Rood, Lillic Davis, Helen Free
man, Violet Cunningham and Agnes Donaldson, all of whom desire
to express their appreciation of tlie
kindness of Rev. Mr. Rushbrpok,
which rendered their holiday one
of such genuine enjoyment.
Will Arrive About the 14th Inst.
Commissioner Coombs, bead oi
the Salvation Army in Canada, accompanied by Mrs. Coombs, Major
Morris and Mr* Adjt. Tborkild-
8011, will arrive in Essington about
the lith inst. This is the commissioner's first visit to Essington, and
the local Army is making arrangements to fender the distinguished
party a reception at the wharf.
It is the intention of Adjt. Black*
bum, local officer in charge, to
hold a meeting, with Commissioner
Coombs presiding, but this will depend on the hour of the boat's arrival. ....
It's a Good Argument
The Skeena 'started from Rupert
Saturday morning for Essington;
and, on account of the heavy sea.
Was forced to return to Rupert after
being out about sever) miles.
.Here is.as good au argument as
fcWJ be adduced for convincing pas
sengers from the south for Skeena
river points that it will save them
both time and trouble by purchasing their tickets to Essington.
Prince Rupert ia 36 miles northwest of Port Essington on the outside passage, and as all the big
liners front the south touch at Ke-
sington before going to Rupert, a
matter of 71) miles is cut off, for in
going to Rupert to ship up the
Skeena one is compelled to return
to Essington. where passage direct
can be secured. This is an item
worth considering.
L0CALETTES
May Meets With Accident
The bursting of a cylinder bend
on the May, off Point Atkins, on
her run north soil o' turned things
around a little. The May was returned to Victoria for repairs and
the Pent rice replaced her on the
Skagway run, while the Amur took
the schedule of the Beatrice. The
May, it is said, will be in commission again within the coming week.
The Beatrice will leave Vancouver Wednesday, May 12, for Skagway, and tin? May's run for Skagway will, if the latter is not in trim,
be made on the 18th and 28th by
the Princess Royal.
The Queen Charlotte Islands
schedule of the Beatrice is canceled
for the present, the Amur taking
nor place.
Buys New Outfitting^
# 	
We clip the following from the
Vancouver World of last Monday:
"Burned out, as the result of tin
big lire at Port Essington last
winter, Mrs. S. Kirby. who is stopping at the Commercial hotel in
Ibis city, has. rebuilt tint Caledonian hotel at the above port, and is
in Vancouver making final purchases preparatory to reopening
the hotel. The new building hat
10 rooms and will be heated by a
hot water system throughout. A
feature of the Caledonian will be
its large ami conveniently arranged
sample rooms."
Goes to Portland Canal Country
Road Supt. Ed Clarke accompanied by -L N. MePhee, left Rupert Thursday for the Portland canal, where, they will be engaged for
some time in making repairs to
bridges and in other government
worla
Mr. Clarke took with him fcpilo
driver, which will be utilized in replacing defective piles in Bear river
bridge, several of which having
become a menace to the safety of
the bridge. If conditions are favorable, it is possible that considerable trail work will be done.

H. J. Nichans. W, J. Carr, Mr.
Harvey, H. A. Baird and W. Ellis.
Alfred K. Vernon, a young surveyor from Victoria, was a member of the party when it left below

The party is in charge of Provincial Land Surveyor Harvey,
and all went north on the Simpson Wednesday.
More Surveyors Arrive
Another party of surveyors arrived Thursday, with Engineer C.
W. Betts of the Grand Trunk in
charge. There are fourteen men
in the party, all registering at the
Essington.
Mr. Betts will take tho men up
the river to Kitselas Canyon: where
they will be employed for sonic
time to come. The Hazelton carried the party on her up trip Friday afternoon.
Tht; coming summer will certainly be a busy one with the engineers and surveyors, and at this
early date it is estimated that there
are more men in the field in northwest British Columbia than were
ever similarly employed in any one
year in the history of the province.
Bound for the Omineca
Jack Wonder and H. Peters have
gone up the river on a prospecting
tour. They Were well supplied

LOOKS BAD FOR CUSTOM-HOUSES
In another column we reprint a
view of the future of aerial navigation and its tendency to ami its
possibilities for revolutionizing the
seience of eeonoinies as applied to
governments, given in an article by
Maj. F. D. Baden-Powell and published in London in the National
Review.
The distinguished gentleman refers to the difficulties which this
new mode of transportation will
bring to life in guarding the frontier against smuggling, and predicts that, within four or five years,
custom-houses will be dispensed
with on the borders.
This naturally suggests the ne
cessity of. providing for a new
gource of revenue with which to
make up the deficit occasioned by
aholisbing the custom-houses. Tobacco, spirits, and light merchandise, which are now a source of
considerable revenue to the government can be transported in airships across the borders and the
customs officials will be powerless
to prevent it, Within five years,
Instead of the ships themselves being regarded as a novelty, the man
Who does not possess one will be
looked upon by his fellow-men
Very milch as is the man today
who does not advertise, as lacking
in enterprisCi
And herein lies the remedy for
supplying the deficit in the revenue. Impose a tax upon these
airships. Upon their passenger traffic per capita, their freight, their
manufacture, ft special tax upon
tho material which enters into
their construction, and a large
sized license fee ior navigators.
The vast number of these ships
\vhich will bd in use within the
approaching lustrum will return an
amount sufficient to pay the combined salaries of every country editor in Canadiij and that ought to
be enough to run any old government;

years time we may reasonably expect to be able to say that flying
is common. "It may perhaps be
looked upon as a somewhat venturesome practice, and among the
general community may not lie exactly an every day experience, but
most well-to-do people will have
made a trip and many will own
machines and make almost daily
runs.
"Then, of course, smuggling will
be the easiest thing in the world.
Even suppose it were not practicable to convey large cargoes of goods
���and there is no reason why this
Should not be done gome day���still
it would undoubtedly be possible to
carry parcels of 100 pounds or so.
If such an amount can be taken
through the air free of duty it will
certainly open up a new field for
the smuggler. Considering, too,
the rapidity and ease with which
machines are likely to travel, they
could be employed continually going to and fro over the frontier,
and so transporting large quantities of dutiable goods.
"The very idea of frontier guards
peems impracticable; they would
have to be posted at every few hundred yards along the frontier. It
has to be remembered, too, that the
crossing of a frontier does not necessarily imply that the vessel is
going to descend in the country it
approaches. For instance, a British machine in going to Germany
might want to cross over parts of
Belgium and Holland.
"Altogether, it seems an If it
would be impossible to enforce any
law as to machines being compelled
to descend at a frontier, and this
implies that customs in the main
will have to be abolished.
"By this simple statement that
customs must in future be dispensed with involves a matter of
supreme importance. As regards
Great Britain, our revenue from
imports amounts to something like
��3;i,000,000 per annum, and if we
Wipe out this sum with one stroke
of the pen, what arc we to (substitute in its place'/
"Here is a point having an important bearing on that great topic
of the day^-tariff reform. As a
matter of fact, however, the main
arguments of that refer chiefly to
Wheat, timber and other imports.
Whicli arc not likely at first to be
affected by aerial navigation. Indeed, it would almost seem that a
tiix on such commodities would be
the solution of the difficulty of being unable to continue the duties
on tobacco, spirits, etc."
Origin of Game of Poker
A writer iii the Paris Figaro has
discovered that poker is not an
American game, but an old French
gafue revived, The news gets a
conspicuous place oh Figaro's first
page, for the game of draw, under
its Gallicized title of "pokaiie" is
highly popular in fashionable circles. Indeed, at the clubpj When
baccarat if* not the game", ctird-
pluyers are never so happy as when
talking of "ae Woof" and "����� fool-
houze.''
The Writer say's he made the discovery in a little Normandy village, where, after a day in the fields
with an ilgcd worthy of the locality, he was invited to a game? o!
tarde for repose,
'���What Shall we play?" he asked,
hnd wiitf somewhat surprised to
taar tlie old man ask:
''Po yoij know the game of poke?"
But astonishment grew when his
���friend began to explain the principles of "poke," and it was found
that they were almost identical
with the fashionable game of "po-
kaire" imported, as had been supposed, from America.
"It's a very old game in Normandy," said the old man, who
was noted for his knowledge of the
lore of that region. To prove it he
produced two ancient volumes, one
entitled "L'Academie Unjverselle
des Jeux," and printed in 1718 by
Theodore LeGras. On page 225
was found a description of the
game of "poke." One can play the
game of "poke," it says, with from
three to six person's. Each one is
dealt six cards; after looking at the
hand to see if one has a poke, two
or three or four aces, or cards of
lower denomination, ace being the
highest, the first player says, "I
poke a chip" (jeton), or more if he
so desires. Any of the others can
also place a jeton on the table, or
can advance or raise the play, or
he can throw down his hand, in
which case the player who has won
need not show his hand, but takes
all the jetons. Any player has a
right to say, "I poke all I have,"
and if no other player will poke all
he has the one first poking his pile
wins without being compelled to
show what cards he has.

THESE are but a part of the Fit-Reform fashions for 15109, but they
give a good idea of the taste and originality of the Fit-Reform
designers. It may be that we 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 this trademark which 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 reputation depended on those individual garments. From the time the cloth goes to the cutters until the garments
arc ready to try on, every stage of the making is carefully watched.
When the completed garments leave the last 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 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 tlie 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 alight convenience to the busy business man.
