DRAWS OUT LARGE ATTENDANCE
Fire Relief Fund Entertainment Given by
the Ladles, Wednesday Night, Was a
Record-Breaker for Solid Enjoyment
Last Wednesday night, the 17th
inst., will be long looked back to
with pleasure by every one of the
large number in attendance at the
Town hall on that date. The occasion which drew forth the liberal
attendance was the benefit entertainment given by the ladies of
Essington in aid of the fire relief
fund. This was the second one
given for this laudable purpose, the
preceding dance having occurred
on the night of the 2d inst. And
v while   the   latter occasion was all
A that   could   have   been   expected,
when the fact is considered that
but three days' time was bad in
which to prepare for it, the entertainment Wednesday night so far
eclipsed it that really the 2d of
March seems a thousand miles
away.
The 17th of March function was
���well, it was conceived, conducted.
managed and supervised by the ladies of Essington, and no man was
even permitted to make a suggestion as to the conduct of affairs,
and this of itself is sufficient to acquaint readers of The Loyalist with
the fact that it was a success. We
arc not throwing any stones at the
men folks, they are all right in
their place, and right handy to
have about the house; but they
never could have done it so well.
The stormy weather bad no terrors for Essington's people, especially when such a treat was promised them, and right nobly did they
respond.
Mrs. Dr. Wilson, Mrs. Geo. Friz-
zell, Mrs. Geo. Shade, Mrs. J. Sloan
and Mrs. Harry Berryman were the
ladies who bad  the affair in band.
The supper was an elegant affair, consisting of cake and sweetmeats of every possible kind, ice
cream, fruits, hot coffee and sandwiches.
The music was  in the bands  of
Messrs. Cameron, Wilbur and Lang
'and was a most prominent feature.
contributing in  a  great   degree to
the pleasure of the evening.

Miss McPherson Wins Her Case
The suit of Miss S. A. McPher-
* son against  the Union Steamship
Co. for damages, occasioned by the
loss of her trunk from the Cowieh-
an, one of the company's boats plying between Vancouver and Essington last summer, was tried in Vancouver last week, resulting in a
verdict of $475 and costs in favor
of the plaintiff.
Miss McPherson boarded the
Cowichan at Vancouver last July
to come to Essington, and gave her
trunk, at the starting point, into
the keeping oi the ship's officers.
When Essington was reached, however, the trunk bad mysteriously
disappeared, and no trace of it has
ever been found.
Install New Lighting Plant.
\ ���
R. G. Cunningham, of R. Cunningham & Hop., has installed a
new lighting plant for use in their
establishment, and they now manufacture their own illuminating
gas. Every department has been
connected, and here night is virtually turned into day.
The light produced by this system is of a bright incandescent nature and is obtained from gasoline;
Essington the Place to Outfit From
Severn] parties have arrived in
Essington recently, on their way to
tl\p Yukon or the Ingenika. country,
having outfitted for the expedition
at southern points. As a consequence they have arrived loaded
down with many surplus supplies
for which they will have about as
much use on a prospecting trip as
a kangaroo would have fpr a piano.
Essington Is the logical starting
point for parties from the south ���contemplating a trip into the Yukon
or the Ingenika, and if the matter
of outfitting is delayed until Essington is reached much expense
and inconvenience will be avoided.
Essington's merchants can supply
everything needed by a prospector,
at as reasonable figures as can be
obtained in the cities, besides such
an arrangement would make a saving in freight and excess baggage
on'a 600-mile run from "Vancouver
to this point, which is quite an item
in itself.
Craigflower Begins Her Run April I
The Craigflower, on which a force
of men has been engaged for some
time in overhauling and refitting
her preparatory to beginning her
run for the summer up the Skeena,
will be turned over to her captain
and crew about the first of the coming week. The Craigflower's machinery has been thoroughly overhauled and this trim river craft
will soon be ready for her. spring
campaign. She will have a regular
schedule for the Skeena river trade,
which will be announced later,'
Scalds His Hands
Billy Greer, night manager at
the Essington cafe, met with a serious mishap last Saturday morning, which caine near putting him
out of commission for a time. A
large urn of boiling coffee was accidentally upset, the contents spilling over both of Mr. Greer's bands,
scalding them in a painful manner. He is again on deck, bow-
ever, catering to the patrons of this
popular resort, but walks past the
���'java" end of the counter with one
eve on that urn.
Strikers Are Still Out
The lot) men who struck for an
advance in wages from $2.50 per
day to $3.00, over at Prince Rupert last week, are still out, and
declare they will not return to
work until their demands are acceded to.
All attempts on the part of the
contractors to secure other men
have so far failed, as "$2.50 per"
for ten hours' mucking doesn't appeal with much force to men in
this section, when offers of $3 in
Essington fail to attract help.

LOGALETTES
Uilly Kenned}', time-keeper at
Contractor Neil Keith's camp, was
over Wednesday. Mr. Kennedy
states that everything is moving
along smoothly in his bailiwick.
He brought over a gang of 20 men
for the Keith camp.
A party consisting of 30 men
with a number of dog teams went
up the river Tuesday on the Strong-
heart for the Ingenica. They outfitted at this point, and departed
well equipped for a long campaign.
1). R. Brewster, in charge of 1).
A. Rankin's work at the Cassiar
cannery, was here this week with a
gang of men, rerfJiiring a donkey
engine. The engine was taken to
the work Thursday morning.
H. Dagnall, who accompanied
R. G. Strange on a trip north,
departing Tuesday week, has returned to Essington. Mr. Dagnall
will remain in town for awhile to
recuperate.
The Camosun came in last Sunday morning with a big list of passengers and a heavy freight tonnage. Sixty-four passengers left
her at this point.
Then.' is an elegant line of new
spring shirts displayed in the window at the North Coast Commercial Co. Ltd., this week; any one

W. H. Backus, who recently purchased a scow from the Skeena
River Navigation Co., came over
with his tug and towed the scow to
Prince Rupert Thursday morning.
The North Coast Commercial Co.
Ltd. are showing some nice lines of
laces and embroideries at very attractive prices.
The Dominion theater  at Prince
Rupert was gutted  by  lire yester
day morning. The origin of the fire
is unknown.
Tom Scully is now in the government employ, being engaged on
bridge work near Essington.
The North Coast Commercial Co.

month ago, and for the present will
make his headquarters In Essington. Mr. Wilbur has purchased
an interest in the North Coast Commercial Co., and has thus identified himself with Essington's business life. Mrs. Wilbur, who is at
present in California, will shortly
join Mr. Wilbur and their son, K.
O. Wilbur, and remain here during the summer.
Fire Committee Has Done Good Work
That there was no mistake made
when, at the citizens'meeting three
weeks ago, Messrs. Shade, Sloan,
Prizzell, Dewar, Berryman. Adams
and MacCormick were selected to
devise ways and means for augmenting the fire relief fund, is
clearly established by the results
of tho two entertainments already
given by them in coperation with
the ladies.
Aside from the social enjoyment
of those who were in attendance on
both of the occasions referred to,
a neat sum of money has been realized, the net proceeds of the first
supper and ball amounting to $95,
while the sum cleared last Wednesday night was but a few dollars
less. All of the returns not having
been made yet, it is impossible to
give the exact amount, but it will
not fall short of $85,
At this rate it will certainly not
bo long ere Essington will be thoroughly equipped to guard against
danger from fire.
Number Increases Each Week
The number of commercial men
visiting Essington increases with
each week. There are no shelf-
worn goods in Essington stores for
the reason that our merchants are
kept busy supplying the steady demands made upon them, thus making it necessary for them to replenish their stocks more frequently.
Drummers have become aware of
this fact, and their visits to Essington are looked forward to with
pleasure and profit.
The Skeena Arrives
The "Skeena," of Foley, Welch
& Stewart's river fleet, which has
been anxiously looked for during
the past week, arrived at Essington yesterday morning.
This is the Skeena's maiden trip
for the season, and she certainly
made a flying start, coming loaded
to the guards with supplies for the
several camps up the river.
Are Getting in Shape
All the canneries hereabouts an
beginning to show signs of activity, being engaged in getting tilings
in shape for the spring catch which
will shortly begin. An unusually
brisk season is anticipated for this
industry at this point, due to tie
early opening of the season. A
number of men have already arrived ami more are vet to come.

IS A MENACE TO THE HOME
Some years ago the good people
of   the   United   States,   including
even members of congress, were so
shocked at the open and flagrant
practice of polygamy by the Mormons of Utah that the ministerial
associations,  the  societies  for the
suppression of vice, and other combinations having the morals of the
pniyerse in their keeping, "resolved
and resojuted" until the supply of
"cap" R's  wag exhausted in every
newspaper office in the country, in
their endeavor  to prase  this blot
from off the face of their fair land.
These efforts  to suppress polygamy  were  in hearty  accord with
the opinions and desire of every
man and woman who held dear the
sanctity of the home,    In the end
Jaws were passed which, in a measure, remedied the evil; but in their
anxiety to remove the mote from
their brothers' eye, did they  not
overlook the bearii in their own organ  of vision?    Brighain   Young,
Joseph Smith and  a host of other
Mormon   "prophets and soothsayers" have been caricatured for their
immoral practices, but the system
introduced by the Goulds, the Van-
derbilts,  the Belmonts, and other
"patrician" families of that country, has been  regarded in  a spirit
of indifference which can be interpreted to mean  nothing short of
endorsement-
Young Alfred Vandorbilt, who
sailed for Europe last summer on
the day proceedings were begun
for separation from his wife, was
greeted, as he stepped into his stateroom by the picture of his cousin,
the duchess of Marlborough, a divorcee, while his mother, who not
only secured a divorce from Cornelius Vanderbilt,but married August Belmont six months later���
Mrs. Belmont marrying Mr. Vanderbilt���strolled down to the ship
to bid her promising offspring godspeed.
Then wo have the Anna Gould -
"Count" Boni Castellaine-"Prince"
de Sagan mix-up, and later Howard Gould's cowardly attack on his
wife's honor in an attempt to secure a separation from her.
Polygamy was one of the fundamental principles of the Mormon
religion. If anything could be
said in its defense, it is that it
loomed up as the primal tenet of
their religious belief, and was accepted with reverence by the Mormon laity. But can anyone in
sympathy with the utter disregard
for the sanctity of marital ties
plead as much in palliation of the
criminal practices which have obtained among some of the millionaire families of the east?
The Loyalist opines that relief from this evil will only come
to the states when the national
congress enacts a universal divorce
law, minimizing the statutory
pleas that may be filed, and giving
to the federal courts jurisdiction
in all petitions for divorce.
Bi'pnms.M has taken root ill the
United States, and already San
Franci.SCO, Los Angeles and Seattle
have been inoculated with the Buddhist germ. A temple, over which a
Japanese priest will preside, is to
be erected in Seattle. This is a
new brand of religion for tins country, lint it is guaranteed to be the
genuine article, in fact the only
safe and direct line leading up to
tho pearly gates. So, if you want
to be up-to-date, jump aboard the
Buddhist chariot of fire and sail
away to glory.

An association has been formed
in the East, having for its object
the taking care of "fashionable

one must pay stipulated fees, ranging from $1 to $5 per month, based
on the number of times the member is liable to get "soused" during the month, A membership

ALASKA COMING INTO ITS OWN
looked Upon as Outcast Territory for Years
lis Wealth of Mineral Deposits Is Worth
Millions of Dollars
Alaska the Golden, says the
Washington Post, in becoming a
land of rare emprises, Neglected
and abandoned tor years as an almost outcast territory, it is now
rapidly coming into its rich and
glorious heritage. If tho present
rate of progress is kept up for a decade, and there appears to be no
reason why it should not continue,
Alaska will be found knocking for
admission to the Union as one oi
its richest states,
There is enough quartz and placer mining in Alaska to keep half
a million miners busy for a century; there is sufficient coal, copper
and other minerals to keep busy
another half million for the same
period, and strangest of all to the
uninitiated, investigation shows
that the fertile valleys of the far
northern country will support <r>0lh-
000 prosperous farms ami boon's.
The goverment agricultural station
at Copper Center has proved that
wheat, oats, barley, and practically
all of the garden vegetables can be
grown to perfection in the rich virgin soil of Alaska.
Railroad development is all that
is needed to bring about a wonderful transformation, and already
lines of steel are penetrating into
the new empire. Frederick VV.
Chase, in a current review says:
'���Alaska has more gold than ever
had California, Australia or South
Africa; it has more copper than 20
Buttes; it has more hard coal than
Pennsylvania, and more tin than
Wales. The hay that rots on its
tundras and plains would fatten
all the cattle that roam on the
plains of Kansas, Oklahoma ami
Texas."
Three railroads are now being
constructed from points on the Pacific coast to the interior; other.-;
now building are the Alaska Central, from Seward City; the Valdez
Yukon at the head of Port Valdez.
and the Copper River & Northwestern at Cordova, on Cordova
hay. The completion of any one
of these roads to the Yukon means
the opening to settlement of an agricultural and mining territory
larger than Texas. But the primary object of the railroads is the
development of copper and coal
fields, said to be among the richest
in the world. One of the bridges
on the Cordova road, it is stated
by the engineers, will cost $2,000.-
000, good evidence that some on<
believes in a rich and prosperous
future for the territory.
A new era is dawning for Alaska,
and it may not be long before the
vote from beyond the Arctic circle
will be more or less a decisive factor in the election of a president of
the United States.
What They Say
Some men are too lazy to kick
when they get  the short end of it.
You can never tell what a woman thinks by what she don't say.
Did you ever see any man who
wasn't willing to make money without earning it?
All men are born free and equal
������and remain that way until they
get married;
Money makes  the  mare go, but
it doesn't always  bring her under
the wire first.���'Ex,

ever run arrived in Chicago last
Saturday night, after a 24-hour run
from Buffalo, N, Y-, completing a
successful schedule by aid of the
Marconi system.
About 100 miles from Chicago
the aerial station showed signs of
an approaching electrical affinity,
but no coherent message could be
transmitted. At 80 miles the instrument on the train caught occasional words from tho Chicago station, This was continued until the
point of established communication
was reached, A few moments later
a truck of the baggage car broke,
ami the train narrowly escaped a
wreck, The ear bumped along for
200 yards before the train could be
stopped. Instantly the train operator sent to the Chicago station
a brief description of the accident.
The experiment demonstrated the
practicability of the use of the system on moving trains.

Complete Command of Deadly Engine of
Destruction Is Now Secured by Use of
Wonderful Marconi System
If all that is claimed for the new
radio-automatic torpedo, built at
the Creusot Works is true, it promises to be the most terrible engine
of destruction that the genius of
man has ever invented, says a cable dispatch from Paris, This
weapon of naval warfare can be
worked from shore or from a ship
and can be used against a ship of
the enemy in motion; there is no
escaping it.
The radio-8>utomatic torpedo is
controlled and directed by the employment of Hertzian waves, and
by aitl of an apparatus resembling
that now used in wireless telegraphy. When loaded it would eon-
tain about two and a half pounds,
of guncotton and about ten times
the quantity of explosive oharge of
the ordinary torpedo. Its apparatus is synchronized so as to receive the Hertzian waves from the
"parenl" ship or shore station, ami
to refuse those emanating from tin.'
enemy. It will be capable of maintaining a maximum speed of 15
knots for five hours.
One of its most important features is the wide radius of its action.
From its starting' point tho operator, be he on ship or ashore, can j
control its every movement���stop
it, send it dead slow ahead or
astern, and alter its course with as
much ease as if he were on board
the deadly craft.
The inventor  is Gustave Gavel.
who  has   long devoted   himself to
the study  of  the problem and  of
naval warfare.

Revive the Beauty Patch
Beauty patches, which were rare
during the recent pompadour period, are reappearing in Paris as
the result of the anticipated revival
of Louis XV fashions. They are
received with great favor, because
the French women never entirely
abandoned the cunning little devices the ladies of Louis' court
found so useful.
Beauty patches are made of tiny
pieces of black velvet in the shape
of stars, mpons and crescents, and
the patch is placed at the side of
tho eye to make the eye appeal
larger. It gives vivacity to the expression. On the corner of the lin-
derlip it attenuates the face; if, on
the contrary, tin; woman desires to
obtain a shortening effect, she puts
one niouche on the right cheek ami
another in the  side of the left eye.
In the tune  oi Marie Antoinette
Merry Widow Hat Takes Back Seat
The "Apache" hat is the latest
sty 1�� of millinery in London, says
a recent Cable. It shares the popularity of the fashionable busby
shape, which at tho beginning of
the winter completely vanquished
tho enormous Merry Widow.
The new "Apache" stylo is small
and closely resembles the busby.
It has the same bulging crown, but
the great difference is in the bVim.
In the busby the brim is entirely
downward) iu the "Apache" it has
this effect only on tho back. In
the front the brim runs diagonally
up from the right side just below
tho ear   to   the   left,   much   in  the
manner of Gainsbovougbs or Panamas.
This change, slight though it is.
makes all the difference both in the
appearance of the hat and of the
wearer. This new style completely
alters the appearance of the wearer's face, giving to it a rakish, devil-may-care look, while tile eyes
seem to be hardened ami the jaws
more firmly set,
Telepathy Is Next New Wrinkle
"Telepathy is coming just as
sure as wireless telegraphy is here,"
declared Rev. John Wesley Hill in
his New York church recently.
"Not long ago I met a friend,"
lie continued, "and he asked me to
think of one name. I did, repeating in my mind my mother's maiden name, Like a Hash he wrote it
upon a card. That is real telepathy, and it is coming. But it won't
come in any devil's sideshow, thro'
some medium. It will come under
the guidance of divine Providence.
Every such discovery will hasten
the enthronement of man. In the
exercise of his sovereignty he shall
rule over the forces of nature and
indicate his divine commission."
SOME DAINTY DISHES
Device Tells Sex of Eggs
An instrument for which remarkable qualities are claimed has just
made its appearance in London.
The inventor calls it the sexophone
ami declares it is an infallible discoverer of sex.
It is simply a pith ball suspended
at the end of a magnetized steel
and copper wire, with a wooden
handle. At the opposite end when
held above a male creature the ball
rotates steadily; if placed above a
female the bull swings backward
and forward like a pendulum,
It has been tested on rabbits,
mice and other animals, The inventor, who is interested in poultry
farming, states the instrument tells
the sex of eggs.
