The climax to the light occurred
in the sixth round, when Lang wns

and Lang at once landed a punch on

onto his feet again.
The manner of ending the light did
not at all help Lang's popularity. Langford was immediately awarded the victory by the referee. His showing throughout the contest, has whetted the public
interest in thc forthcoming contest
between Langford and Jack Johnson
for the heavyweight championship of
the world.

RECIPROCITY IS MAKING HEADWAY IN BRITISH COLUMBIA
Federal Government Are Satisfied
With the Change of Feeling
Shown as People Understand the
Proposed Agreement Better.
(Special to the Optimist)
Ottawa, Feb. 22.--Great satisfaction
is being expressed by members of the
Federal Government at thc change of
public opinion in British Columbia in
regard to the proposed reciprocity
agreement.
It was realised that efforts would be
made by thc corporation interests to
arouse feeling in British Columbia, but
the steady decline of opposition since
the terms of the agreement were made
public, has been very marked.
This change of opinion is welcomed
by the Government as an evidence that
the agreement required only to be
understood to be appreciated by the
people at large.
Miss Vide Brown arrived by thc
Prince George today on a visit to Mr.
and Mrs. A. J. Morris of this city.

TWO YEARS FOR
YOUNG MURRAY
JUDGE YOUNG GIVES THOUGHT
TO SAD  CASE
Decides It Is Best in Lad's Own Interest to Send Him to New Westminster���Will be Taught a Trade
There.
Sentenced to two years in thc penitentiary at Westminster, the lad Murray evidenced no sign of emotion in
court today. Far more concerned
seemed Judge Young himself over this
disappointing case. Judge Young spoke
to the lad with the utmost kindness,
asking him if he had not realised that
an opportunity had been given him
to make a better start. Murray remained stolidly silent.
His Honor said he did not want to
send the boy to gaol because there
criminals are brought in contact too
much with one another, but he preferred to send him to the penitentiary
where he can be kept apart from the
worst types of criminals, and be taught
a trade.
Two years is the least term for which
anyone can be sent to the penitentiary,
but good behavior on Murray's part
will reduce this term by about six
months.
SENSATION AT VICTORIA
CITY COUNCIL ALL RESIGN
Judge Gregory Declares Municipal Elections Invalid
Owing to Voters List Being Improperly Compiled-���-Mayor Morley Unseated���Government Appoints Commission
Victoria, Feb. 22.���A sensation was!
caused in Victoria today by the judgment
of Judge Gregory, declaring the election
of Mayor Morley and the city council
invalid. As a result of the judgment,
Mayor Morley is unseated, and the
council have hastened to send in their
resignations.
Arrangements have been made with |
the Provincial Government to appoint
a  commission  to  carry  on  the  work
of  governing   the  city,   until   a   new
elect inn takes place.
The ground for the declaration that
the election is invalid is that the voters'
lists were compiled from thc assessment
returns,  instead  of  from  the  rolls  in
the Registarr's office. This being contrary to the provisions of the law, makes
the election void.
NO  FESTIVITIES  FOR  THEM
Irish Members to Avoid Coronation
Ceremonies
London, Feb. 22. After disi-UM-ing
the matter among themselves the Irish
parliamentary party tonight decided
to abstain from all participation in the
coronation ceremonies. They made a
promise, however, thai when the King
visited Inland the Irish people would
welcome him wilh every generosity and
hospitality.
Captain H. Babington arrived by the
Prince George from the south today.

Part  of Big Scheme.
i Special to the Optimist)
Toronto, Feb. 22 ��� News has been
received by a prominent financial hou��e
here, that a merger is being arranged
between thc Cunard Steamship Co.,
and the Canadian Northern fleet. The
combined fleet will run under the management of a joint board, making both

The intention is to concentrate more

(Special lo the OptimiM |
Victoria, Feb. 22, A bill to regulate
automobiles is the latest thing to attract attention in the House. Introduced yesterday by Hon. Mr. Bowser, il kept the Legislature occupied
most of the day in discussing it. Mr.
McGuire led a sharp attack on it, declaring that the measure -Mimed to
assume that thc drivers of ordinary
vehicles possessed all the sense in the
world.
To this attack from his colleague,
Hon. Mr. Bowser replied that the
bill was intended to protect life, and
the auto as the latest comer among
vehicles must be expected to give
precedence to the others. Mc-srs.
Brewster, Shaw, Cawley and Watson
joined with McGuire in criticism of
the bill.
Williams in a sardonic speech .aid
hc could not understand why the Tories
took no such interest in mere important
measures, while on this bill thai effected
only their joy rides, ihey were split in
two fragments.
Several amendments propos��d by Mr.
McGuire were rejcctid whereupon Ihe
member for Vancouver snid lhat ar the
attorney-general would not listen to
reason in connection wilh lhe bill ho
would move no more amendments.

This is a little section ot the paper, which from day to day will be devoted
to subject* of special interest to women. Any and all of the ladies of Prince Rupert
are invited to contribute to its columns, and to take part in its discussions. Suggestions and criticisms are invited by the editor. The hope is expressed that "Tho
Cosy Corner" will fill a social need.
It Was Olive Schreiner
Several readers have sent in guesses
as to the identity of the woman author
whose book we outlined on this page
one day last week. Three ladies made
a correct guess. The author was Olive
Schreiner, and the book, "The Story of
a South African Farm."
The Desire for Beauty
The very first thing that is said of
women in the Bible is that she is fair
to look upon, and whatever the duties
of a woman may be in this world one
of her first is to make as much aa possible of thc good looks that the Lord
has given her. There used to be a time
when little girls were discouraged from
taking any interest in their good looks
to the extent of forbidding them to
look in the glass. But forbidden pleasures have ever proved the sweetest and
no doubt these same little girls found
opportunity to gaze upon themselves
and were all the better little maidens
for having done so.
Of course, no child should be encouraged to be vain, but it should be
taught to know its own good points
of face and figure and to consider it
a duty to keep them as perfect as possible. This will, of course, necessitate
plenty of fresh air nnd exercise, plenty
of cold water bathing and a wise restraint in the matter of eating. All
this iB good for thc soul as well as the
body, for the child who learns to control its appetite for the sake of ils
complexion learns a lesson in self-
denial that is worth much to it in the
way of character making.
This is the age of prevention, not of
cure, the medical authorities tell us,
and it is a mother's duty to look after
her children each day to see that they do
not outrage the laws of health und
have to suffer the consequences as
they grow older in bad complexions,
ruined digestions nnd the tempers Ihat
go with such u state of affairs. Every
child is beautiful in its own way, and
it helps a great deal to know that this
is true.
Many children are neglected and
snubbed and made continually sad by
the other members of the family, while
they might have had a happy childhood
with some one to point out and appreciate the good qualities, and insist
that the most be made of them. The
boy as well ns the girl sometimes needs
encourugement of this sort, and the
wise mother will sec thnt all her children
are healthy and happy and they will bc
beautiful.
Don't Coddle Yourself
The human body is a very obedient
servant, if we hold the control, or it
is a very disagreeable taskmaster if we
let it dominate us. Don't think too
much about it, and don't coddle yourself for fenr you'll catch cold or have
the fever or some other ill. Take good
enre of the body, however, and give it
an opportunity to be well. Don't overeat. Don't get over-heated in the warm
season. Sleep with windows open.
Bathe frequently. Take a few exercises
every morning. Get plenty of sleep.
Breathe deeply and fast once in a
while. These are easy rules to observe
if you make them a habit. The body
should be kept in as good condition as
the operator keeps machinery. Let
us take proper care of it, for that means
making it hardy and strong, not weak
and delicate by too much coddling.
Lingerie Ribbons
Every girl who wishes to keep her
lingerie ribbons fresh nnd dainty should
have a bottle to dry them on.    Any
bottle will do, but the larger the surface
the better. Cover the bottle with
cloth. Do not endeavor to make a case
to fit, for that is not the idea, but tuke
i\ strip of cloth about four inches wide
and wind it around und around the bottle
in overlapping folds until all the glass is
concealed by a soft, thich covering.
When you have rinsed out your ribbons
all you have to do is to wind them
around the bottle, pin them at each end
and leave them to dry, which will be
only a matter of a few minutes, for
the cloth quickly absorbs the moisture.
When you remove them they will be
as Hat us if ironed, and if you trim any
ends that may be frayed a bit you will
have ribbons which look like new.
This is a far nicer way than leaving
your ribbons in your lingerie to go
through the hands of the laundress, for
she does not take them out and they
get boiled and starched, which spoils
their delicacy, while the heat of the
iron when they are pressed fades the
colored ribbons and turns the white
ones yellow.
OUR DAILY  RECIPE
Orange Tea Cake
This recipe makes eighteen delicious,
inexpensive und quickly made little tea
cakes: Cream one tablespoonful of
butter and the same of lard with one
cupful of sugar. Add two well beaten
eggs, three-quarters of a cup of milk, a
pinch of salt, one teaspoonful of extract
of orange, three-quarters ot a cup of
washed currunts, one and three-quarters
cups of flour, and two teaspoons of
baking powder. Bake fifteen minutes
in muffin pans in hot oven.
Household Hinta
The oven in every kitchen does
not get the attention it requires, considering whut un important cooking
vessel it is Many who arc particular
as to every pot and pan being scalded
and scoured forget this small iron room,
which has the power of absorbing and
holding so many odors and grease.
Every part of the oven, not forgettihg
the roof, should be scrubbed out at
least once each week, a long brush and
plenty of soda water being used for the
purpose.
Life Romances
(From Public Opinion)
A lady living in London remembers
seeing thc mother of a recently dead
peeress selling pies at the pit-heud.
The Nation recalls lhat Barney Bar-
nato, when he became a millionaire,
and found his aunt still keeping a fried
fish shop in Whitechapel, offered her
two thousand pounds a year to come
and live "as a lady" in the West End;
but she stuck to her fried fish, thanking
him all the same.

MICKEY O'BRIEN AND HIS PARTNER REJECTED, UNDESIRABLE
Boxing Bout Arranged to Take Place
in Empress on Wednesday Cannot
Be Gone on With. Disappointment Expressed.
'g^WmiMMsM
At five o'clock Tuesday morning the
steamer Rimona called. Among her!
passengers were Mickey O'Brien with J
his partner Harry Krantz who had
come to Rupert in connection with the
boxing contest announced to take place
in the Empress theatre on Wednesday.
Mickey O'Brien had been expected by
various boats for over a week to don
the gloves in the bout with Oscar
Nelson arranged by Mr. Julius Levy.
Here, however, neither O'Brien nor
his partner was allowed to land. They
were informed by Dr. Reddie, immigration officer, for the port that from
information received from the immigration authorities they are rejected as
undesirable, and must not land on
Canadian soil. Both have gone on to
Skagway.
It is understood that O'Brien was not
allowed to embark fro Prince Rupert
from Seattle, by the emigration authorities there, but having made his
way to Vancouver embarked there.
Interviewed this afternnon, Mr. Julius
Levy had nothing to say officially on
the subject. Arrangements for a bona
fide boxing bout had been made fair
and square, and he could not understand the action of the authorities.

WANT   WORKING   FOREMEN
Two Members of Electric Plant Construction Staff Fired
Alderman Clayton has made the*
discovery that in connection with the
erection of the electric light plant on
one or two occasions it cost $11.50 per
day to superintend Ihe work of workmen
whose total wages amounted to only
$9 per day. As a result of this hc moved
last night that the services of Messrs.
Hamilton and Cooper be dispensed with.
Alderman Newton supplemented the
suggestion that working foremen be
employed instead of men to stand

IT WAS A TOUGH JOB
Burglar Works in Vain on an Unlocked  Safe
Seattle, Feb. 20.���After working for
several hours to crack the safe in the
office of Campbell Brothers, engineers
and machinists, 73 Stacy street, on
Monday night, the would-be burglar,
evidently a tyro, sat down to a typewriter and wrote the following note,
which hc left lying in front of ilie safe:
"Mr. Campbell -Dear Sir: I can't
do it."
A member ol the firm said the safe
was not locked, as it is the custom to
keep nothing but the books of the company in it. Thc crnckman would have
bad easy access lo the interior by merely
turning the knob, but as it was he drilled
a hole near the edge of the safe door
and attempted to open it wilh plugs and
wedges.
Nothing of value was taken and small
damage was done.

Keeping Out Undesirables
It may be assumed that the immigration authorities were acting on ample
advice when they refused to allow a pugilist to land at the wharf yesterday, and
thus put out of the question the boxing match which was scheduled to take place
at thc theatre tonight. It may be assumed that it was that, and not any objection
to bona-fide boxing exhibitions, that prompted the action.
In this connection the bouts put on earlier in the week at the Kaien Island
Athletic Club set a fine example of clean and manly sport. The bouts though
well contested, were entirely free from any brutality. It would bc a pity indeed,
if clean exhibitions of an art which is distinctly British, and which perhaps more
than any other, lies at the root of the instinct for "British fail- play," should be
allowed to fall into disrepute.
More than any other game, not excepting that to which the Duke of Wellington
attributed the victory at Waterloo, has boxing served to cultivate the manly qualities. All life is more or less of a fight. He is but poorly equipped for business or
political life who dealing blows, has not learned how to take them without squealing. A sport which teaches a man not merely how to hit straight, but that better
lesson Of how to take punishment without fear or resentment, is n sport we cannot
afford to do without.
On the other hand it is to be ho-icd that the authorities will continue to
watch the waterfront with great vigilance. Since the downfall of tho corrupt
Gill administration at Seattle, undesirables from that city have found it expedient
to leave in great numbers. The despatches tell of them even offering jewellery
for tickets in their haste to leave before the authorities take any steps against
them. Most of the undesirables are said lo bc going south, but many are making
their way north.
It is common knowledge that since the present authorities in Prince Rupert
inaugurated the poliry of affording protection to those keepers of bwady houses
who possess votes, that there hits been an increase in a certain class of undesirables.
It is not always easy for the shipping authorities to take action in excluding them,
even where they are anxious so to do. Within the past two weeks one boat from
Seattle is Mid to have landed a batch of five such undesirables here.
In this connection great praise is due the purser of another boat, thc Humboldt, who on discovering the character of one batch of passengers on his boat,
took tin. law into his own hands, and refused lo allow them to land here. Remembering thai the Humboldt dies an alien ling, the public spirited action of her purser
is deserving of honor. His conduct is worthy of emulation by all who have a desire
for a clean city.
A Piece of Enterprise
In regard lo the announcement of the Langford-Lang fight in London, the
result of which was announced exclusively in the Optimist yesterday afternoon,
it may be of interest to our readers to know that the announcement was on the
streets of Prince U-.ipi ri within twenty minutes of the result being made known
in London.
The bout was scheduled to take place in London al 10.30 last night. A llash
from the ringside at 11.1ft at the moment of the dccision.came by way of the Atlantic
cahle and was flashed across the continent in a score of different directions. It
was reniveil by Manager Dowling of the Government Telegraph service at Prince
Rupert at 8.18 or after allowance for the difference between Pacific and Greenwich
lime, a period of ten minutes after being filed in London. The Optimist press with
the forms made up was in waiting, uml len minutes later the news was on the
streets of Prinee Rupert.
The little incident shows how clearly we in thc Last Great West are linked
to (he heart of the old world, thri ugh lhe tchgtii- h and news agencies.

E. Love has been appointed Superintendent of the Electric Light Plant as
well as the Telephone Department,
at a salary of $200 per month. The
services of T. Burns who took care of
the erection of thc plant from the start,
have been dispensed with by the light
and 'phone committee. Statements
that Mr. Burns ever held the position
of light plant superintendent are incorrect. His work throughout has been
to take charge of the construction of
the plant. For his own satisfaction as
an engineer taking pride in his work,
Mr. Burns stayed with it until by
personal test he had proved the plant
capable of doing the work required
of it.
Last Friday night's test of the plant
carried out by Mr. Burns resulted in
perfect illumination of the system early
on Saturday morning when Mr. Burns
j had everything in order to his satisfaction. Since then the light while
he has been conducting coal consumption
and other technical tests of engineering
and practical interest, has run with
absolute efficiency. There has been no
stoppage due to any imperfection of
the plant or faulty construction whatever. In fact, the only stoppage at all
of the plant during the night time was
a ten minute one made for an experimental purpose by Mr. Burns himself.

OH,   WHAT   A  SURPRISE'
Prisoner  Detained  on  Vag.   Charge
Performs Fancy Stunt
In passable attire, Malcolm Campbell
submitted last night to arrest on a vag.
charge. He was shown to his upurt-
m.iit by an attentive usher, and the
dour was most carefully closed to keep
out the draughts. Inside it was nice
and cosy. Judging by events, Malcolm
seems to have found it even warm.
Murmurings in English, Scotch, Italian,
Spanish, Gaelic, and American were
heard from his quarters during thc
night, for Malcolm has thc reputation
of being *x linguist. Morning dawned.
"Malcolm, come forth " winningly remarked the assiduous usher at the door
of thc accomplished one's apartment.
And Malcolm came forth. His appearance dazzled the observer. Like
some irradiant insect hc had shed the
dull hued chrysalis of his garments
rending them into n thousand pieces.
And there, robed in innocence, he stood
like Adam before thc fall. Superb in
his contempt for clothes, he wore but
a frown when the mere minions of the
Law sought to lead him before thc court.
A frown on n frosty morning is too
transparent a substitute for raiment,
so Malcolm did not make his bow
before thc magistrate. He will probably
appear tomorrow.
A man named Nelson, who has figured
in varuios roles in Rupert during the
past few months will appear in tomorrow's police court on a theft charge.

(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Feb. 22. -While GcorRe
McFarland was on his way to the
police station last ninth in charge of
P. C. Moore, who held a warrant for
his arrest, he broke and ran. Moore
called on the passersby to assist him
in rccapturiiiR the man, but no notice
was taken by the citizens.
Determined to get his man, Moore
fired two shots in the air as a warning
to McFarland to stop, but without
any effect. Moore then fired at the
prisoner, the ball hitting him on the
fleshy part of thc left leg, and bringing
him down.
The exciting incident occurred at the
comer of Hastings and Cambie, while
crowds were about.

YOUTH WHO IS A PROBLEM
Display* Dishonest Tendencies, and
Seems Deficient Morally
Judge Young has decided to reserve
sentence upon the lad William Murray
found guilty of numerous petty pil-
ferings. Watches, revolvers, and other
small articles have been appropriated
by the boy on several occasions lately,
in spite of the fact that on thc occasion
of his first conviction Murray was
sternly warned by Judge Young. Asked
if he remembered the warning the
lad replied "Yes," and also said that
he knew he might be punished for taking
thc articles. Doctors Eggert and Red-
dic have examined Murray carefully
suspecting that thc tendencies hc exhibits arc the result of some mental
dcficinecy, hut nevertheless his condition physically, seems normal. Judge
Young remarked that it was a pity there
is no provision made for taking care
of cases like this except in gaol. He
is reluctant to commit Murray to a
term of imprisonemnt, yet the Ind can
certainly not be allowed to go again at
large.

J CHIPS FROM THE j
1 HUMORISTS
 1
The hour was 1 a.m.
Inside the dimly lighted hallway
stood Mrs. Dorkins wilh a grim smile
on her face.
The front door was bolted.
"John," she said in cutting acecnts,
"you have been dissipating at the club
again "
"Maria," spoke a voice outside, rapidly, clearly and distinctly, "he blew
lugubriously on the blooming bugle "
Instantly she unfastened and opened
the door.
Mr. Dorkins had not been dissipating.
"She's not like other girls."
"Temperamentally, or do you mean
that she has gotten hold of something
sensible in the way of a hat?"
"Fine old inn, sir," commented the
host. "Everything in this house has its
story."
"I don't doubt it," remarked the
grouchy tourist. "And is there any
legend connected with this old piece of
cheese?"
"What is the hardest work you do?"
"My hardest work," replied Senator
Sorgum,   "is  trying  to  look  like  my
photograph and talk like my speeches
when I get back to my home town."
"I hear you are married, Chloe."
"Yes'm; I'se married."
"Are you happily married, Chloe?"
"Oh,  yes'm;    I's  happily  married;
Sam gets me lots of washin' "
Citiman��� You've been living in thc
suburbs so long. I suppose you've had
considerable experience with servant
girls?
Subbubs���Well, it's got so that when
my wife is interviewing an applicant
now she always begins by asking: "Were
you ever employed by me before? If
so, when, and how long?"
FOR SOCIAL RECIPROCITY
Oh, mother, buy me diamonds and a
rope of gentle pearls,
Ten  trunks of  new  creations from
Dracut in dear Paris,
Buy three waving ostrich feathers to
adorn my flaxen curls
And get a dancing master to perfect
my courtesy.
Tell pa to buy knee breeches and call
out our private car,
For we're due at thc vice-regal court up
north at Ottawa.
For there's no animosity
To real reciprocity,
Let's show our generosity
And love for Cabot Lodge.
For the codfish and the cowhides and the
wood pulp and the cyanides
Are nothing but a soplet tossed out
to the vulgar sort,
And we'll have for the Dominion an
awfully good opinion,
When we make our genuflection to his
Highness of Connaught.
Oh, mother, sell the villa that you built
on Ocean Drive.
And get pa to buy a chalet on the
shore of Ha-Ha Bay.
Pinehurst,   Newport,   Lakewood,   and
Palm Beach won't seem alive,
After George's dear old uncle comes to
Canada to stay.
And New York will seem as primitive as
untamed Omaha
When they open the vice-regal court up
north in Ottawa.
There'll be much pomposity
And some impetuoaity
For real reciprocity
For our aristocrats
From Pittsburg to Chicago and from
Boston west to Fargo,
Who think the stamp of royalty will
make a loud report,
When placed upon their millions at the
largest of cotillions
Where they'll make their genuflections
to his Higncss of Connaught.

The hour was 1 a.m.
Inside the dimly lighted hallway
stood Mrs. Dorkins with a grim smile
on her face.
The front door was bolted.
"John," she said in cutting accents,
"you have been dissipating at the club
again "
"Maria," spoke a voice outside, rapidly, clearly and distinctly, "he blew
lugubriously on the blooming bugle "
Instantly she unfastened and opened
the door.
Mr. Dorkins had not been dissipating.
COAI. NOTICE
"She's not like other girls."
"Temperamentally, or do you mean
that she has gotten hold of something
sensible in thc way of a hat?"
"Fine old inn, sir," commented the
host. "Everything in this house has its
story."
"I don't doubt it," remarked the
grouchy tourist. "And is there any
legend connected with this old piece of
cheese?"
"What is thc hardest work you do?"
"My hardest work," replied Senator
Sorgum,   "is  trying  to  look  like  my
photograph and talk like my speeches
when I get back to my home town."
"I hear you are married, Chloe."
"Yes'm; I'se married."
"Are you happily married, Chloe?"
"Oh,   yes'm;    I's  happily  married;
Sam gets me lots of washin' "
Citiman���You've been living in the
suburbs so long. I suppose you've had
considerable experience with servant
girls?
Subbubs���Well, it's got so that when
my wife is interviewing an applicant
now she always begins by asking: "Were
you ever employed by me before? If
so, when, and how long?"
FOR SOCIAL RECIPROCITY
Oh, mother, buy me diamonds and a
rope of gentle pearls,
Ten  trunks  of  new  creations  from
Dracut in dear Paris,
Buy three waving ostrich feathers to
adorn my flaxen curls
And get a dancing master to perfect
my courtesy.
Tell pa to buy knee breeches and call
out our private car,
For we're due at thc vice-regal court up
north at Ottawa.
For there's no animosity
To real reciprocity,
Let's show our generosity
And love for Cabot Lodge.
For the codfish and the cowhides and the
wood pulp and the cyanides
Are nothing but a soplct tossed out
to thc vulgar sort,
And we'll have for thc Dominion an
awfully good opinion,
When we make our genuflection to his
Highness of Connaught.
Oh, mother, sell the villa that you built
on Ocean Drive.
And get pa to buy a chalet on the
shore of Ha-Ha Bay.
Pinehurst,   Newport,   I.akewood,   and
Palm Beach won't seem alive,
After George's dear old uncle comes to
Canada to stay.
And New York will seem as primitive as
untamed Omaha
When they open the vice-regal court up
north in Ottawa.
There'll be much pomposity
And some impetuosity
For real reciprocity
For our aristocrats
From Pittsburg to Chicago and from
Boston west to Fargo,
Who think the stamp of royalty will
make a l&ud report,
When placed upon their millions at the
largest of cotillions
Where they'll make their genuflections
to his Higness of Connaught.

Last night the members of the Prince
Rupert Industrial Association held a
special meeting to consdier what action
shall be taken by the P. R. I. A. pending
the announcement of the city council's
decision in regard to the 45 cent wage
rate. Members only, were admitted
to the Iiall which was packed to the doors.
It was at first thought that proceedings
should be private as far as the press
was concerned, but this idea was abandoned. Thc reporters were asked to
give an impartial account of proceedings.
English speaking members opened
the meeting which was presided over
by Mr. Eraser, and ample opportunity
was given to the non-English speaking
members to give their views. The
principal motion before the meeting
was to the effect that the Association
take no action pending the decision
of the council. This was amended later
to thc effect that the Association take
no action either for or against a strike
until after Monday night. This motion
as amended was unanimously carried.
Meanwhile in order that the workers
may ascertain who are, and who are
not with them in their demand, a
ixptition is to be circulated at once
amongst the business men of the city
for the furtherance of the wage-increase.
The names of those who express themselves against the increase or who
refrain   from    committing   themselves
one way or the other will be noted by
the P. R. I. A. for future reference. In
charge of the petition is u committee
consisting of Messrs. - Fisher, Fraser,
Shaw, and Lubridge.
Instructions have been issued to the
Secretary, by vote of the members,
that warnings be sent to the labor
organisations of Vancouver, Seattle,
and all the coast cities that workers
should keep out of Prince Rupert as
a strike is in prospect.
While that attitude of the council
towards the question was sharply criticised, a motion commending the action
of Aldermen Newton and Kerr was
carried. There was one dissentient
voice. The owner, one of the "other
nationalities," did not hold with the
idea, or even the suspicion, of kowtowing to councillors. But the general
feeling was that these aldermen who
had stood out for a square deal should
be shown the appreciation of the workers.
Throughout the meeting an air of determined, but not hasty handling of
the strike idea prevailed.

West Union, O., Feb. 20.���Two new
features developed in the afternoon
session of the special grand jury investigating wholesale buying of votes
in Adams county. One was that of a
woman selling her son's vote and the
other concerned a voter who was bought
in three different ways.
Sells Son's Vote
The woman lives in Pebbles. She is
accused of having accepted $5 for her
son's franchise. Both mother and son
were indicted, but neither has been
arrested,
A farmer in Jacksonville precinct,
who came in today, surprised the jury
by his confession that he was bought
three times last election day. For his
promise to vote the straight Republican ticket, he said, he received $12.50;
on a contract to vote the straight
Democratic ticket he was paid $10, and
the price for agreeing to vote for a
certain Democratic candidate was $3.
Farmer Punished
He pleaded guilty when arraigned
and was disfranchised for five years
and fined $5 and costs and given six
months in the workhouse, with the
prison sentence suspended.
One hundred and six indictments
were returned today, which brings the
total up to 998. There are indications
that the number will reach 1,500, as
predicted by Special Prosecutor William
B. Stephenson.

Ladies Are Invited
Thc executive of the Liberal Association in inviting ladies to attend the
great meeting in the Mclntyre Hall on
Friday night to discuss the reciprocity
issue, have showed their good sense.
The invitation is not intended in any
sense to be "a graceful compliment."
It is the outcome of a conviction that
all who are subject to the country's
laws, have a perfect right to show an
interest in them. In this case the subject of reciprocal trade relations is so
bound up with matters of household
economy that it is of special interest
to women.

The new hospital is to be opened to
patients  on   Monday   next,   and   will
