OPINIONS VARY
ON RECIPROCITY

Has Made a Good Bargain Will
Stimulate British Capital.
(Special to the Optimisti
Seattle,   Feb.   21.-  The   trustees   of
the chamber of commerce today adopted
a  resolution  protesting  against   recip-
Irodty.   The resolution asserts that the
business   men   of   the   Northeast   are
opposed to the agreement.    They say
"if the bill   becomes   law   we  demand
provisions for the removal of duty on
! logs   and   for   discriminating   in   thc
I duties   for   transportation   by   foreign

COUNCIL HESITATES OVER WAGE QUESTION
THE WORKMEN CAME IN THEIR NUMBERS
Hilditch's   committee   betrayed   signs
of dissension at the council board.
Scrapped from Start to End
"When I got into that committee,"
said Alderman Hilditch, "it was a
light almost from the moment the
door was closed to the end. I did not
want to stay there for ever. 1 did not
want to have them fighting there for
five hours "
So he tried to get some sort of an
agreement out of them for a plebiscite.
Thc agreement crumbled at the council
table.
As mover of the plebiscite motion
in thai committee Alderman Clayton
last night stated that his attitude to
the question now *~was identical with
his attitude before election. He demanded citizenship as a return for the
increase of wages. He told the workers
that if they regardetl labor as a commodity they must bc prepared to see it obey
the law of supply and demand. He
moved the reference to n plebiscite to
avoid the evil of hasty legislation, but
said that he felt that the men are en-
tilled to the increase, antl need it.
NEXT TIME WILL BAR W0RKERSAND PRESS OUT
Decide to Hold Private Meeting of Whole Council Next Thursday Night and Make
Up Their Minds���They All Want to See the Men Get the Increase���
Workers' Spokesman Gives Council Some Straight Talk
At the city council meeting last
night the resolution of the P. R. I. A.
rejecting the idea that thc matter of
the wage increase to 46 cents should
be referred to a plebiscite, was present ed.
A big body of wage workers gathered to
Jiear thc result. The city hall was
packed to the doors, antl many crowded
around the windows outside. It was
like election night.
Till midnight thc council discussed
the question, but the only definite
result reached is that the council in
committee aa a whole, will wrestle
with thc problem again behind closed
doors on Thursday night with the press
and the members of the P. R. L '*������
excluded.
Thc plebiscite idea is meanwhile
abandoned. The workers have demanded that the council settle the
matter themsleves. F.ven after having
come to a "unanimous" agreement to
recommend the plebiscite method to
the council, the members of Alderman
Worker Puts It Plainly
J. Carroll speaking for the*wage-workers said that thc feeling with them
WM that if this matter were referred |1,cre
to a plebiscite it would mean the refusal of the incresae. The workers
wanted the council to decide the matter
themselves.
"If you give us 'No'," said Mr.
Carroll, "we will have a little respect
for you. If you give us 'Yes', wc will
have a great deal of respect for you.
If you put the question up to the people
we will have no respect for you at all,"
At this there was an outburst of cheering loud and prolonged. Alderman
Clayton asked Mr. Carroll where he
came from, and Mr. Carroll replied
that he was born in Ireland but  had
! such vessels over American ships."
Toronto, Eighteen Liberal centres
are reported to have forwarded to lhe
Government BO appeal against the
ratification of the reciprocity agreement, as being a loss and injury to
Canada as a whole.
Ottawa That Canada made a good
bargain in the reciprocity agreement
with the United States, one that will

The Why of Orange Blossoms
Like all familiar customs, whose
origin is lost in antiquity the wearing of
orange blossoms at a wedding is accounted for in various ways. It has
been said by some that it was on account
of the introduction of the orange branches at the wedding of Jupiter and Juno.
By others that the custom originated
among the Saracens, the orange in that
country signifying abundance, and that
it was introduced into Europe by the
Crusaders.
Still   another  tradition   comes  from
Spain, where it is said that one of the
Spanish   kings  was  presented  with  a
beautiful  orange  tree   by   an  African
prince.    The tree was planted in the
royal gardens where it was the admiration  of every one who saw it.    One
of the foreign ambassadors was desirous
of introducing so great a curiosity into
his own land, but as the court gardner
I had been forbidden under pain of death
I to allow even a single seed to escape
' his care, it seemed well nigh impossible.
One day, in passing the tree, the gar-
| dener broke of! a spray of the blossoms
I and thoughtlessly handed it to his
daughter, who placed it in her hair.
Thc girl was beloved by a young artisan,
but her portion was not as large as her
family considered necessary. The ambassador, seeing the coveted prize in
her hair, and knowing the story of her
love affair, offered her a sum sufficient
for her dowry if she would give him the
spray and say nothing about it. The
marriage soon took place, and as a token
that she remembered the source of
her happiness, she secretly obtained
another spray of the orange flowers
with which to adorn her hair for her
wedding.
Whether her father lost his head or
not the story does not tell, but from that
time orange blossoms were considered
the proper adornment for a bride, and as
in Spain orange trees became very
plentiful and the fragrant blossoms
could be obtained at any time of the
year, it seemed very appropriate for a
bridal llower. Its adoption in England
and France was no doubt due to the
subject of bridal decoration being made
a special study by modistes. The
traditions connect-.d with it, as well
as its significance in the floral language,
makes the orange blossom a very suitable adornment for a bride.
In Crete thc bride antl bridegroom
after the ceremony, were sprinkled with
orange flower water, as now they are
showered with rice, and in Sardinia it
was the custom to fasten oranges to the
horns of the oxen drawing thc nuptial
carriage.
It is a cruel thing thus to warp the
commencement of a child's life, to
turn its natural spontaneous gaiety
and hopefulness into gloomy forebodings
and childish melancholy.
Many people do this with the best
intentions in the world. They think
a child ought to be warned of the trials
and tribulations which will beset its
path when it grows up. There is no
need, however, to meet trouble halfway. It is better that a child should
be taught to look for the bright side
of things; to expect happiness rather
than misery.
The best safeguard against disaster
that a child can get is a training which
will help it to stand "unmoved amidst
thc jostling of opinion." Montaigne
spoke truly when he said: "We are
taught to live when our lives are well-
nigh spent." That ia the pity of it.
So many years spent in stumbling
blindly along in thc darkness, our ignorance preventing us from beholding
the light; our own limitations and
prejudices keeping us back from happiness. Wrong methods of education
are the root of all wrong thinking. Give
a child right methods of thinking and
you give him a charm which will enable him to go through life with a
maximum of happiness and a minimum
of misery.

MY HOBBLE
I love my new hobble,
It clings to my form;
And if I am careful
'Twill do me no harm.
I brush it and press it,
And tend it with love;
And if I grow stouter
'Twill fit like a glove.
I love my new hobble,
Its cling is so warm;-
And if I don't wear it,
'Twill do me no harm.

How Pessimists Are Made
The great majority of pessimists are
the direct result of wrong training. A
(lark and gloomy view of life was Bet
before them at the outset, and this
dark and gloomy view has intensified
with the years.
EATING LESS
Believing Americans suffer from overeating, Mr. Da Cunha of New Jersey-
would limit by statute the amount of
food a person may swallow ut a meal.
I ordered up a sirloin rare,
With mushrooms on thc side���
It was the finest form of fare
That ever I had tried���
When lo a man in brass and blue
Said, "You must cut thc steak in two,
And just one-half of it must do
Or into jail you'll slide."
When on a sultry summer night
The youth and maiden fair
Would cat all the ice cream in Bight
Upon the bill-of-fare,
The watcher says, with iron will,
"Nol one more spoonful of vanil',
Because, according to the bill,
You've had your legal share."
O diners at the annual feed
Of Gotham's Old Guard troop,
What tortures of stomachic need
You'd Buffer in a group
If as you gulped the oysters raw
The toast man rose, held up a paw.
And groaned, "H'b specified by law
We finish with the soup "
It seems a blow at pleasure, t his,
Within the banquet hall,
And yet one economic bliss
We sec in dinners small;
The Beef Trust's downfall will be viewed
If we offset the price of food
By making of ourselves a brood
Who do not eat at all.

BRITISH   LABOR   PARTY   MAKE
AN ANNOUNCEMENT
After Long Fight They Will Cease to
Provide for Support of Labor
M.P.'s���Courts Have Declared It
Illegal.
London, Feb. 20.���The Labor Conference at Leisecter has decided by
a large majority to abandon its pledge
to contribute to the support of its
members of Parliament, which a majority of the Judges who gave the
famous Osborne judgment declared to
be illegal and contrary to public policy.
The extremists in the conference,
including Keir Hardie, put up a fierce
opposition, declaring that the abandonment of the pledge was a surrender to
the House of Lords and submission to
the dictation of the Government, but
the represcnlatives of 1,054,000 workmen swamped the opposition, representing 306,000 workmen.
The above decision has apparently
been arrived at in anticipation of
Government action and thc famous
Osborne judgment, by which it was
declared illegal lo divert labor union
assessments to the support ,of Parliamentary candidates. The case was
carried on appeal to the House of
Lords, where the 'decision of the lower
court was upheld. A vigorous agitation has since been carried on by
the Labor leaders for legalization of
compulsory levies for Parliamentary
purposes. Opposed to this is the Liberal
policy of the State payment of all
members of Parliament, and which, it
is held, would remove all legitimate
grounds for complaint which the Labor
party may have in regard to the Osborne
decision.
FARMERS WOULD
BUILD RAILWAY
ARE ANXIOUS FOR LINE TO HUDSON'S BAY
Are Forming Joint Stock Company
to Build Line in thc Event of thc
Government Declining to Construct the Road.
Kil im mt i .ii. Feb. 20. -The farmers
of the west are to undertake the construction of the Hudson Bay railway,
aa a joint stock company, should the
Dominion government fail to carry out
the demands of the farmers that this
railway be built and operated by the
government.
An effort to form such a joint stock
company of farmer" throughout the
west as will undertake the construction of the road, is being made by T.
W. Knowles, and others interested, of
Saskatchewan, according to notification which was received by the secretary of the Edmonton board of trade
this morning.
Mr. Knowles has opened an ollice
in Winnipeg, and is sending out circulars asking for subscriptions to tile
project. The proposition he submits
is that farmers should subscribe $10
and agree to sign an agreement to
purchase $100 of stock so soon as 500
subscriptions have been secured.
Mr. Knowles in his letter makes an
appeal for the farmer-* of the west to
take the matter up in the concrete form
of a farmers' joint stock company, under
thc name of the People's Hudson Bay
Railway.

The Electric Light Appointments
In a lengthy and somewhat Impious letter Alderman Smith hus replied to
the questions concerning the electric light appointments. Hc has stated that
the man Allison whom he put forward for an appointment at thc electric light
plant is not a relation of his.   That is a sufficient answer to that question.
The other questions the Acting Mayor is not-explicit about. He has drifted
oil into an opinion about the interior decorations of our skull and the wisdom of
the Almighty,neither of which are in any way connected with the electric light
appointments. We are quite satisfied to know that Alderman Smith was not
Chairman of the Patronage Committee when intelligence was given out.
To bring Alderman Smith to the question, we would point out, that at the time
he wrote the letter saying "His (Allison's) appointment will not result in the discharge of any permanent employee of the electric light plant," that the axe had
already fallen. A few hours before, the foreman of thc electric light plant was
notified that his services were no longer required. Juggle with phrases as he will,
Alderman Smith cannot be blind to the fact that the dismissal of Foreman McKenzie was rendered necessary owing to the appointment of the man Allison.
Alderman Smith need not get angry and utter impious reflections on God
because public attention is aroused. Alderman Smith is a public man, and must
expect Io be addressed publicly and return courteous and business-like answers.
Neither Alderman Smith nor Engineer Allison, nor Foreman McKenzie are most
vitally interested. It is the public who have most at stake. The electric light
plant is the property of the city, its cost and its upkeep comes from the pocket
of the citizens. The public have a right to insist that appointments to it are
made from merit and in thc public interest, and not for patronage reasons.
Engineer McKenzie proved his worth by erecting the plant. He knows it
from the ground up. It would seem to be in the public interest to keep htm there.
In addition to being a qualified engineer of good character, he is a citizen since
before incorporation and has a home and family here.
To discharge such a man the minute the plant is in operation, and give his
position lo a man who comes into town last November, urging that the latter
be given the appointment "because he has $20,000 to invest." is of interest to
those workingmen electors who voted for Alderman Smith in the belief that he
was "a friend of labor."
When in addition the pu lie learn -and as Engineer Allison has since admitted that he knew so little of pumping machinery lhat he ran the city pump
all night on thc night of February 18th without closing the release valve, the question becomes one of interest to every tax payer who is interested in the careful
upkeep of the electric light plant.
Alderman Smith would be well advised to try his hand on another letter,
leaving the question of the Almighty Wisdom to the theologians and confiningj
himself to electric light matters. Perhaps while he is about it he will deal with
one mnre question: i(il How does it happen that the salary as superintendent of
the expert electrician, who installed the plant, (Mr. Burns) was fixed by the committee at the same rate as that of the fireman who shovels coal into the boilers,
unless it was meant to secure the --iiperintendent's resignation and place one more
job on the patronage list?

PHotn ut>
Last night the local sporting enthusiasts assembled in good numbers in
the large hall of the Kaien Island Club,
in the centre of which a ring had been
erected.
Mr. Frank Keeley, all smiles, announced the events and introduced
the contestants. Mr. Frank Bowness
was the referee and Mr. Julius Levy-
held the watch.
The intervals between the more serious
bouts were lightened by several good
topical songs from "Splotas from Dawson," a dusky gentleman who accompanied himself on the banjo, these
select ions being highly popular.
'Nic Donaldson Kids, gave four rounds
and these youngsters delighted the
house with the whole hearted manner in
which they entered into the sport, and
a collection was made for their benefit.
The contests were: Gunboat Jack
vs. Knockout Murphy. Good four
rounds in which Murphy held the advantage, iind was awarded the verdict.
Billy Kentzel vs. Battling Swede.
This was another four rounds full of
incident, the referee declaring a draw.
Billy Collins vs. Scotty Buchanan.
This was a good fast four rounds both
men stunding well up to it, and Buchanan
was declared the winner.
Jack Dempsey vs. I'erry Queenan.
This was the last bout und appeared
to have the most interest attached to it.
For the whole of the four rounds the
advantage seemed to lay with Dempsey,
he was certainly in thc better condition.
The referee gave the veruct a draw.
This brought to conclusion an evening
of excellent sport admirably conducted,
and which reflected credit on the management.

Well Known B. C. Liberal on the
Stand in the Chinese Immigration
Inquiry, Gives Some Straight from
the Shoulder Denials.
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Feb. 21.���Standing in
the witness box as a witness in the
Chinese immigration commission inquiry, Robert Kelly, whose name has
been frequently bandied about during
the inquiry, today gave a straight denial to all charges of graft in connection
with Chinese immigration.
He denied that either he or any
member of thc Liberal party in British
Columbia either directly or indirectly
made a dollar out of the admission
to the country of goods or laborers from
China.    "
Throughout the whole of his examination, he gave straight from the
shoulder answers, and repeated challenged his accusers to come out into
the open and confront him with the
charges they were circulating in private.
His evidence made a good impression.   .

been practically brought up in Oali
fomia. Alderman Clayton gave some
instances to show that in San Diego
and other cities over the line, also
Victoria, the workers themselves were
discouraging transient labor from coming in as they needed the work themselves. Mr. Carroll said that in the
Vancouver employment offices there
were notices offering laborers $3 per
day in Prince Rupert. "Who authorized
these?" asked Alderman Clayton. "Not
the city council," said Acting Mayor
Smith. "They were authorised by
the city contractors," said Mr. Carroll.
Votes Given for Promise
In answer to Alderman Pattullo Mr.
Carroll went on to say that the present council had received 111 votes
from the wage-workers there represented on the strength of their pledges
in favor of the 45 cent increase. Those
votes had put the council in office.
The workers held lhat the question
had already been before the people at
the election time. There was no need
for a plebiscite now.
Workers May Fight Issue
"What is a fair wage?" asked Mr.
Casey for the workers. He did not
expect an answer, but went on to say
frankly to the council that if they
thought the city could not stand for
the increase and that the workers were
by their demand trying to encroach
on the share of others, then let them
decide the matter by their votes. "If
you turn us down we shall at least respect you," said Mr. Casey. He went
on to say that if turned down the workers would have to consider other means
of securing a living wage, and that
though labor was a perishable commodity, while the herring and the spring
salmon were running in the harbor
the workers would find themselves
able to press their demands for a considerable time.   (Cheers):
Would Give the Rate
Alderman Newton declared himself
out and out in favor of the 45 cent
rate. He said he did not think it possible to get reliable employees at starvation rates, and so had himself decided to pay the extra money for his
own help. (Cheers). He moved that
the 45 cent rate be granted to city
employees to take effect March 1st.
Alderman Kerr seconded the motion
after assuring himself that by "city
employees" Alderman Newto had not
by any chance meant "citizen employees." He did not think the city
bound legally by the 37 1-2 cent rate
in existing contracts.
Acting Mayor Smith favored Alderman Newton's motion only as far as it
affected "citizen workmen" meaning
"our own people: men who have
come here with their families, bought
real estate, and settled down." He
feared that the contractors affected
by the increase could sue the city for
the wage difference, and wanted to
take legal advice before voting on the
question.
Mr. Carroll pointed out that the wage
clause in the contracts provided for
"a minimum wage of 37 1-2 cents per
hour," and did not think the contractors had any come back on the
city this being so. It was agreed that
the acting mayor shall take legal advice
on the point.
What Hilditch Was Going to Do
Accounting for his recommendation
of the plebiscite idea as chairman of
the wage question committee, Alderman Hilditch said that hc would rather
have waited for information from thc
Mayor of Vancouver. That had sinoe
been wired for, and had come by wire.
It stated that for common labor, $2.50
per day was now paid in Vancouver,
and that an increase to $3 was about
to be recommended. Living in Prince
Rupert, he held was fully 10 per cent
dearere than in Vancouver. He certainly thought that this was a question
to be decided by the council themselves
and not by a plebiscite.
Comical Committee Wo, k
Having been quietly listening for
some time, Alderman Pattullo now
got up remarking that lhe question
though serious, had its amusing side.
After agreeing to bring in a unanimious
report, the committee now boasted of
two members who declared that they
did not think that report right. Alderman Pattullo added that he did not
think 45 cents any too much for the
laborers, but thc effect of the increase
upon the city in relation to other struggling cities on the coast. The workers
themselves might suffer eventually, suppose the news went round that Rupert j
was paying 45 cents an hour and owing
to an influx of labor from other centres
paying less competition may rcducewages
other than city wages to perhaps as
little as 25 cents an hour. The whole
question, he thought, requires thorough
investigation. \\ hy not wail until
Mr. Manson gels back. He is paid a;
salary which should enable him to
devote his whole time to it. Because |
the matter needed more thorough in-1
vestigation, Alderman Pattullo said he
woultl vote against the motion grating
the increase at once. He declared
himself still in favor of thej-lebiscite.
Will Meet in Secret
For a long lime after the counci
wrestled wilh motions, and amendments and amendments to amendments
and withdrawals. Alderman Hilditch
fought hard against the question being .
sent back to his committee to settle,
and it was finally decided to set next
Thursday night for the whole council
to discuss the question in committee of
the whole.
Asked by the Opiimist at the close (
if the next meeting woultl he open for
the men, Acting Mayor Smith said!
No, that they could get along better
if they were not bothered with the
men's presence.
"And how will that affect thc Press?"
"The  Press  will  be  excluded  too,"
replied Acting Mayor Smith.

SUPT. MEHAN SEES PROMISE
OF BIG THINGS THIS YEAR
Settlers Are Getting Ready to Move in as Soon as First
Kitselas Trains Are Running���Looks for Big
Developments With First Operations
���Line Linked Up By 1914
From his office down there by the
waterfront where the engine bells are
beginnning now to clang over thc level
crossing with the inspiring prophecy
of coming traffic, General Superintendent
Mehan has been taking a long look.
What he saw is interesting. To begin
with he noticed the rapid progress
PrinceRupert ismaking in her upbuilding
New and substantial dwellings and
business premises everywhere have met
his eye. He has looked further. Prince
Rupert's expansion with the coming
Spring he could not well miss. Not
focussing his gaze merely locally, however, Mr. Mehan has glanced across
the continent. To follow that glance
means something to the citizen of
Prince Rupert.
Right up almost to Kitselas the thread
of steel now extends. Beyond is Hazel-
' ton rich with the promise and part
performance of big mining prosperity.
And there are fat farm lands between,
fertile valleys well sunned, well watered.
With the coming of spring to Mr.
Mehan's farseeing eye has come the
picture of busy trains, one, two, it might
be even three or four a day running
this very spring crowded with passengers
and laden with goods and material for
the extension of the line and the development of thc interior.
"There can be no doubt," says Gen.
Supt. Mehan, "that this spring is to see
a tremendous rush for the development
of the mining and agricultural interests
of the interior country about Hazelton.
Trains we shall certainly run, as many
as may be needed to expedite the advance
of settlers into these districts. I expect
a great deal from the mining development of the Hazelton neighborhood,
and the farming development of the
Lakelse and other agricultural valleys
which the line now completed has
already reached."
"It has been our experience in the
progress of the Grand Trunk line form
the eastwards,'-continues Mr. Mehan,
"to find that as fast as the steel is laid
we have to get trains running over the
line to accommodate the in-pouring
tide of settlers with their goods and gear
for home-building, their machinery and
agricultural implements. This experience I have no doubt will be repeated
at this end of the rails, and it keeps
on steadily with the advance of the
steel westwards.
"By the time the steel is linked up
there will be many and many a fully
developed and productive farm earning
well with its wheat and produce output
along the line of the Grand Trunk
Pacific. Development does not wait
for the line to link up. It follows hard
on the heels of the steel. The settler
does not wait for a hundred miles of
rails to be laid before he goes out to
locate his farm. He does not wait for
fifty, thirty, or even only twenty miles
of steel to go down. He is there with
his goods wanting transportation facilities with every five or ten miles of
completed railroad. The driving of
the last spike on the G. T. P. will find
a belt of well advanced development
in all branches of productive labor
across the Dominion."
"And when, Mr. Mehan, do you
expect that last spike to be driven?"
asked the Optimist artist.
"For that," replied the Gen. Sudt.
"I am inclined to go by what Mr.
Chamberlin has said after having been
over the route several times and seeing
the actual progress of the work in all
its stages. He has said with confidence
that the end of the year 1918 will see
the line linked up, and I, knowing him,
am as certain as he is that the Spring
of 1914 will see a well established train
service along the completed Grand
Trunk Transcontinental."
WATERFRONT JOTTINGS
The Cetriana, returned from her trip
to Whale Island, is discharging coal at
the new portion of the G. T. P. wharf;
and from Foley, Welch & Stewart's
wharf the Henriette took the old North
Bend in tow for the south where the
North Bend will be overhauled for
another term of service here as a coal
hulk. Progress with the re-piling and
repairing of the G. T. P. wharf goes on
rapidly.
