Will Come to Canada This Year, and j Tells What Con Be Done in Northwest
Essington Should Have Some of Them ���
Harry  Draper, who, with Burt
Stafford, came down the rivoT last
week, in a conversation wi<�� The
Loyalist, gave an interesting de-
scription of the country up where
his claim is situated, Mr. Draper's
holding is about 130 miles north of
Essington, on the Skeena river,
four miles from the settlement of
Kitwangak, and is directly on the
line of tho G. T. P. He says that
the land can not bo surpassed for
fertility, there being about five or
six feet of black soil on it, on which
jerries and wild fruit of all kinds,
potatoes and garden truck generally, are grown in abundance. Mr.
Draper has been in British Columbia for the past 24 years, and during that time has visited every section of the northwest, but he unhesitatingly asserts that the country where ho is located, for miles
around, is the best he has seen,
During last year there was almost
continual sunshine, there being but
four rainy days between March
and September, thus enabling outdoor work to be. prosecuted until
late into the latter month.
Certainly this bears out the claim
of Tho Loyalist that Northwest
British Columbia is the place for
the man of moderate means to attain to a position of independence,
if not affluence, in a comparatively
short time.
Late dispatches inform us that
the stream of immigration from the
states to Canada has already be*
gun, and it is estimated that between 75,000 and 100,000 farmers
and homegeekors from across the
border will forsake their holdings
in the older states and east their
lot with us. Immigrants from this
source have been coming in to different sections of Canada in groat
numbers for several years past, but.
land men assert that the influx of
homeseekers this year will surpass
that of any previous period in the
history of the country. Over 75,-
000 are the figures aeceptod as being a fair estimato of the increase
in the farming population of Canada for 1909, and this estimate is
generally held to be a conservative one.
The old states, such as Texas.
Arkansas, Indian Nation (now Oklahoma), Kansas and Missouri,
which have been successively the
scenes of rustling activity in the
iminigratiou line during former
years havo been abandoned by
many agriculturists, who are now
coming to Canada, Texas especially has lured more homeseekers
within her borders than any of her
sister states, but it has not made
good. Although an empire in itself, having an area of 270,000
square miles, a vast amount of its
land is utterly worthless.
Alberta and Saskatchewan are
getting the bulk of these land seekers, and so great has been the rush
that the officers of the dominion
department of immigration have
been unable to keep up with the
demands made upon them, and it
has been necessary to employ extra clerical forces.
Now the question presents itself,
Why should not Northwest British
Columbia get some of these people?
She could, and would, if a little of
the elixir of life were injected into
the proposition. Possessing as she
does all the requirements demanded
by the homeseeker that either Alberta or Saskatchewan can boast
of, she has the mineral wealth of
an empire within her boundaries,
and notwithstanding the immense
yield of her treasure house in gold,
silver, copper and coal, the development of these industries is but
in its infancy. In addition to all
this, are the fisheries and canneries
of this province which give employment to thousands of men and send
their products to every quarter of
the civilized world. Northwest
British- Columbia is one of the richest sections of country on the globe.
The scope of its possibilities as a
wealth producer is illimitable, and
all that is necessary to make it one
Was a Beautiful Display
That Essington's ladies can have
the advantages of city shopping
without the attendant delay and
expense of going to Vancouver, was
amply demonstrated the past week.
A look at Mrs. Frizzell's show window will bear The Loyalist out in
this assertion, for her millinery display, on the 6th and 7th, in its individual attractiveness and the artistic arrangement of the window,
would have reflected credit upon
any of the city establishments.
J. H. Murphy is the artisf who
dressed the window.
Station Mjen Quit Work
Three gangs of station men, who
have been employed at McHugh's
camp since last May, have abandoned their work and left the camp.
The men took the work on contract, and claim they have been
unable to realize anything for the
year's labor other than their board
on account oi the exorbitant prices
they were charged at the camp for
the necessities of life. Other workmen are getting ready to follow
suit.

As showing what wholesalers

F. F. Quinn, representing McLennan, McFecly it Co., of Vancouver.
C. Mclntyre, representing W. H.

GRAND OLD MAN GONE TO REST
In the death of Canada's venerable statesman, Sir James Cowan,
the blind ex-senator, which occurred at his home in Toronto, on
March 18 last, the dominion has
lost one of its most conscientious
jurists and purest minded men.
Sir James Gowan was the author of
many important bills which were
enacted into laws, among the most
prominent being the law regulating divorce. While sitting in the
senate 30 years ago���to be exact.
in 1880���he foresaw the evils that
would ensue if stringent regulations were not provided whereby
the growing tendency to disregard
the sanctity of the marriage vows
might be curbed. During that year
he formulated and had enacted the
law which now governs the question of divorce in Canada. This
grand old statesman, in addressing
the senate in furtherance of his
bill, said:
"Thank God, the people of Canada know how to estimate and do
value and cherish the sacred character of the matrimonial tie, the
purity and sacrednees of the family; they know these sentiments���
attributes of the higher law���are
ihe source and life of Christian
civilization, and that without them
no nation can prosper. The hest
men in the United States have
looked upon their divorce system
as a malignant epidemic of evil,
but now it has overspread the
country from the Atlantic to the
Pacific. Let us not slumber under the conscious feeling that no
general loosening of moral restraint
is to be found in this community.
Eternal watchfulness is one of the
safeguards of national purity, as
well as of liberty. Surely, something may be done toward public
safety in respect to a Virus worse
than leprosy, regarding its effect
Upon the social condition, One is
almost tempted to ask, are the
Watchmen all ignorant, or are they
blind or sleeping, that loud, Warning Voices have not rung throughout this Christian land'?
"I believe that I have done my
diitvj and if I am right and acting
according to the will of Cod, it will
be carried sooner or later; If I am
Jiot, I hope it may be crushed at
once."
Sir James Gowati Was a grand
old Irlnhman, and it was nomewhat
of a coincidence) sitys the Toronto
Star, that he should pass away
on the morning after St, Patrick's day, as though the braVe old
spirit had held the fort to see the
beloved anniversary agaiiij and
then had gone contentedly to his
rest.    Irish  he  Was by birth, and
The Swiss railway authorities,
says a dispatch, have decreed that
"women's hats with a diameter exceeding 32 inches shall be classed
as bicycle or automobile wheels,"
and the wearers will not be permitted to ride in passenger coaches.
Well, what do you think of that?
"Bicycle or automobile wheels!"
Guess that'll hold you for awhile.
But wait; when the women of Switzerland get to voting, what they will
do to those railway officials will be
a-plenty.

The town council of South Orange, N. J.��� has, by an ordinance,
prohibited "the barking of dogs or

is opened a field for some bright
genius to benefit humanity by introducing a breed of "barkless"
dogs and "crowless" roosters. That
affix "less" is being worked to the

RACE HORSE JUMPS LIVELY
. ���     li  i 	
Leaps Three Times and Covers Over Fifty-
Four Feet Each Second While Making a
Mile in 1:37 1-5, the World's Record
"How many jumps will a horse
make when traveling a mile in
1:37 1-5?" was the question asked
of a group of horsemen the other
day.
The remark started the turf wiz-
/anls to thinking along little different lines from that they are accustomed to indulge in, and they
certainly became greatly interested
in figuring out the new dope.
A horse going a mile in the
World's record time of 1:37 1-5
makes '2(14 jumps in the 5,280 feet
oi the distance, nearly three jumps
or strides to the second and covers
over 54 ftct each second of the
journey. If you doubt it, or if you
want the fractions reduced to a
nicety, get a pencil and paper and
work the problem out yourself.
The suggestion is offered that the
sheet of paper be of ample proportions; it is not much trouble to
sharpen the pencil. The figures are
based on the assumption that the
racehorse in action makes 20 feet
in each1 jump or stride.
This problem rests entirely upon
the length of stride the horse makes.
Turfmen do not agree upon the exact length of the racehorse's stride;
one nian says that a 2*year-oldV
will range from 14 to 16 feet, while
Longfellow, when that mighty striding horse run the three-quarters
al Saratoga, covered 27 feet each
stride', Longfellow la conceded to
have been the longest striding race
horse in the world, and ttnU is con.
reding much when such horses as
Tom Bowling and others arc taken
Into consideration!
The mention of one long striding horse brought to mind another,
a,id so on, ,iinti|.a number of horses
of note had been recalled. It was
claimed that Miss Woodford, while
under full sail, covered but 1(> feet;
17 feet is the distance credited to
Dr. Rice at each Stride, and so it
went. With such figures to go by,
these turfmen claimed that 20 feet
per stride was a fair estimate, and
they reached their conclusions on
that basis.

Casting of an Old Shoe After the Newly
Married Couple Has Its Origin Away
Back In Right of Possession in the East
When one embarks on a now undertaking, such as departing to take
up a new post, or going upon a
journey of application for a place
of any kind, it is a common custom for relatives and friends to
throw an old shoe or slipper after the
traveler for hick, Bays the Chicago
Journal, It must not be a new
one, nor must the slipper or shoe
be unworn, or the token of good
fortune is nil.
Though common, this custom in
pot observed so much for the ordinary occasions of life as it is for
weddings. At nearly every wedding, when the newly married couple start on the honeymoon, some
relative or friend stands ready to
throw tlie old slipper or shoe after
the carriage.
Only those who have had all the
claim on the bride hitherto should
throw the slipper, if its right luck
token is to bo observed. Tho nearest friend of the bride���her father,
or tho one who gave her away,
should be the shoe thrower; and
the shoo is thrown not after or at
the bride, but directly at the bridegroom. It is for him in reality,
and is a token of the transference
of his wife from her friends to his
care and protection.
Just as the wedding ring is the
survival of a badge of Servitude,
the owner's mark for his slave, so
is the old shoe a survival of an old
usage that has como down to us
from ancient customs in Eastern
lands. When possession of land
or of anything else was yielded up
by an owner lo a buyer, the transference of tho former owner's shot-
to the new owner was a mark of
the exchange.
When the possession given up
was of old standing, this was implied by the giving over of a shoe
that had been worn; hence the reason for old shoes, not new ones,
thrown after bridal parties.
In Eastern lands if a man desired to give token that he claimed
land and meant to occupy it, he j
threw his shoe upon it. Not a new
shoe, but one taken from his foot.
This was the symbol of ownership.
If the first owner meant to dispute
possession he east the shoe back.
The latter reason is why it is unlucky for either the bride or bridegroom to pick up the shoe if it
should fall near them and throw it
back. Always has it been considered a bad token to do this, yet
some times in ignorance of this it
has been done, playfully, of course.
By throwing the shoe back, the
bridegroom is really refusing to
take up his new possession. The
shoe means occupancy, and he
should keep it.
If, in that old Eastern time, a
man delivered over his shoe as n
sign that he resigned possession,
and the new owner refused to take
it, then he was rejecting the land
or other purchase tacitly. The mat.
ter was perfectly understood, and
the shoe stood instead of lawsuits.
To this day Eastern people take off
their shoes as a mark of reverence
and as a token that they dare not
take occupancy where they stand.
The thrower of the old shoe ought
to stand barefoot to keep the luck
emblem intact, and the shoe should
certainly bo.one of his own.
The bride begins a new life. She
Bhould enter her husband's house
in new shoes, therefore. Invariably
she does so, not always knowing
any reason underlying this, save
that she has everything new for
her wedding. But she would be
unlucky if she were married in old
shoes.
Fit-Reform Styles Spring and Summer 1909, MILLINERY OPENING WAS GRAND AFFAIR
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
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 not shown just the style that appeals to you, We have some that will, he 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 Pit-Reform experts.
And wo will take it as a personal favor if you will bring to our attention any garment bearing this trademark which may not conio up to
the Fit-Reform standard. We not only make tho guarantee good but
thank yon for your trouble Every Pit-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
are ready to try on, every stage of the making is carefully watched.
When the completed garments leave the last tailors, skilled experts e,\-
amine evory detail of workmanship to make doubly sure that each garment is worthy of bearing the Fit-Reform trademark, Fit-Rofonu has
won tho 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 thoso garments than ho can got at a
tailor's. Aside from tho greater variety to choose from and the Fit-
Reform trademark to guarantee satisfaction, there ig 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 tho busy business man,

500 BUTTONS ON THIS NEW GOWN
Husbands Take One Look at It, Throw Up
Both Hands, Rush Out the Store and Disappear Behind a Green Baize Door
Obedient husbands who, at the
word of command, hasten to help
button their wives dresses, will find
new joy in life in the newest imported gown, shown at the opening
session of the convention of the
Dressmakers Protective association
held in New York City recently.
There arc only 500 buttons on this
new gown, and although it costs
���11250, no button-hook is thrown in.
A few men who visited the convention paused in front of the large
collection of buttons, which ran up
and down, over and across this new
creation. Having counted the instruments of torture, the men fled
across the street to a haven in
which polite attendants in white
coats stood behind a slab of polished wood, where they indulged in
the strong waters of forgetfulness.
Although the 400 dressmakers
who listened to the opening address
of President Eliza White applauded
many of her utterances, there were
no men who, having looked at the
gown with the 500 buttons, rose up
to call her blessed.
Miss White called attention to
some new gowns from Paris, which
are of a fulness and amplitude unseen in a long time. One of these
gowns was explained by the speaker
as follows:
"Over there you will notice a
new gown which comes to us from
the Middle Ages. Attached to it
is the arinonierc or sack; there is
no break at the waist. The skirt
portion is accordeon pleated; there
is a nice blond silk yoke and the
skirt is about six yards wide.
���'Women will again wear feminine clothes." said Miss White.
"They will find their models in the
picture galleries of Europe. Some
of the gowns are constructed of Salome silk, though goodness knows
it's hard to tell why Salome has
been honored by naming clothes
after her."
