SCOTT Aa LOST
NOT VANQUISHED
LOCAL OPTION LEAGUE   LOOKS
TO FIGHT AGAIN
Pats ��� Resolution Appreciating Services of Dr. Spencer and Mr. Faria
and Pledging Themaelves to Continue the Fight.
After thc poll waa declared last night
the (supporter* of the Local Option
Association held a meeting in their
rooms to discuss the situation As a
result of their deliberations they framed
and adopted unanimously the following
resolution.
"We.thc members of the Local Option
LcKitue ot I'rince Rupert, desire to put
on record our earnest appreciation of the
services rendered to us in the present
Local Option Campaign by the Rev.
\l)t. Sp��nr,T and Mr. W J Faris.
They have inspired us by their pres
Pence, they h:,ve guided us by their
jwi.sdom, they have furthered the Tern
| pxranee Cause by their ett'ect've addresses
Not only have our own !!ves been
I dee'-ened by aasoc'at-on with these
siron-; Christian men, but the life of
I the ordinary citizen has been committed
I more unreservedly to the fight for
| better moral conditions.
\Se follow them as they leave us to
I k�� forth to the battle, with our waimesi
I gratitude and most earnest prayers, and
1 pledge ourselves to continue the present
I campaign and  not rest satisfied  until
what seems tonight a defeat, will give
place to a moai glorious victory for the
cause of rghteousness and the Kingdom
of God."
Suspense waa not prolonged after the
polis closed last night for the vote on
the Local Option Question. Withm
a very few moments after the ballot
boxes had been brought in to the City
Hall the count was made and the
returning officer, J. Lome Mcl.aren,
made known the figures aa follows:
Total votes polled 441.
Against the petition 272
For the petition 169.
Majority 10.1.
Official announcement of the result
will be made formally on Friday.
There Wa* No "Mafficking''
Contrary to the expectation of a
number of citizens the decision that
Prince Rupert is to remain a wet town
for the next three years for certain,
waa not made the occasion of any
frantic jubilation. Satisfaction was expressed by a number of business men,
but the orgies predicted by some didn't
happen.
Proposals were made previous to
the election to have a dozen special
constables sworn in, but the chief of
police from previous experience of
similar occasions was certain that special
constables would be unnecessary, and
his opinion was well justified.
Would Not Rub It In
There was some talk of burning an
like rubbing it in, and the ceremony
fell through.
Prepared for Defeat
For several minutes before the announcement was made the leaders of
the Local Option Association sat at
headquarters quietly awaiting the result.
"I think we'll be beaten by a hundred
votes," said Mr. G. R. Naden.
His depressing prophecy was received
with protests.
"Last night I thought we'd win, but
I fear now we can't," said Rev. F. W.
Kerr.   Dr. Spencer was silent.
Gave Up All Hope
Then an Opt insist representative looked in with the tiows that the first ballot
box opened showed a majority against
them of 28.
"We'll never wipe that out," said
Mr. Naden.
A telephone call showed that the
Skating Rink had gone against them
aad all hope was resigned. "We'll
meet in the Baptist church tonight at
nine and talk over our plans for the
future over a cup of coffee," spoke up
Dr. Spencer without waiting for the
other polls to be announced* That they
had put up a good fight and that the
odds were against them was frankly
admitted by all.
Not a Single Drunk
Not a single case ol drunkenness or
of any other nature whether the outcome of liquor or not, appeared in the
police court today. Evidently the
celebration of the "wet vote" was a
pretty dry event.
D'ARCY TATE CONFIDENT
OF AMICABLE SETTLEMENT
Counsel for G. T. P. Makes Statement to Optimist���Is
Impressed With Firm But Businesslike Attitude
of Mayor Stork and the City Council
The annual meeting of the St. An
drew's Society has been postponed until
The sole purpose of Mr. D'Arcy
Tate's present visit to Prince Rupert
is, he says, to try to net the assessment
difficulty settled up before the end of
the year. At the elose of this morning's
conference with the council he was
optimistic.
"Progress towards a satisfactory solution of the problem is certainly being
made," he said to the Optimist. "That
is all 1 can say at present regarding the
negotiations in hand. I want *.o add,
however, that I am much impre.-sed
by the attitude of the Mayor and city-
council in the discussion. They are
firm for the interests of the city while
anxious to treat with the G. T. P. in a
f-iir and business like spirit. 1 (eel
confident that ar. amicable settlement
will be the outcome of the conferences."
Still in Conference
At the time of going to press a further
discussion of the matter !s in progress
in the Prince Rupert Club.
Up till midnight last night the city
council Bat !n private conference with
Mr. D'Arcy Tate. Asked for a statement this morning the Mayor was
willing only to state that a discussion

The People's Candidate for Mayor
Aa FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS INVITED
%\^mmW*
On his return to Prince Rupert after
his recent business trip to the south and
prairie districts 0. M. Helgerson remark*- on thc progress of the city jn
the way ol <treet grading and general
improvement.
During his stay down below Mr.
Helgerson was actively engaged in
connection with thr Port Mann interests of the firm of 0. M. Helgerson's
Securities, Ltd., in which he holds
the controlling interest. Property extending to 114 acres and reprinting
Sr-'5,000 has Is.-.-n taken up at Port
Mann by his company and will be placed
on the market next month.
Saskatoon has attracted (). M. Helgerson's attention. Since he was there
three years ago the population has
doubled as in many other prairie cities.
"When 1 sec- such rapid antl sub
substantial development on lhe prairies,"
said Mr. Helgerson. "I feel unbounded
confidence in I'rinre Rupert with its
land and water ��� resources and tians-
portation growing so fast."
In Saskatoon Mr. Helgerson secured a
fine business block at .<4o,000 and took a
sixty days' option on an adjoining
property. Since his arrivai to Prince
Rupert ho has received word from
Saskatoon that a similar property
about which he was enquiring has risen
in value 'rom $'160 per foot then, to
$800 per foot now.
It is^Mr. Helgerson's intention to
op<-n a brunch ottice in either Calgary
or Saskatoon this coming summer, and
thus to extend the field of his firm's
enterprise substantially into the promising prairie district. His interest in
Prince Rupert, the field of his recent
successes, continues and he had hoped
to be the owner of some more valuable
insitie business property here on his
arrival now, but the tram-action has not
been completed.
'Every time I come lo Prince Kupert
afler being away the city looks better
and better," says Mr. Helgerson, "and
I was kept busy everywhere I went
while away, answering ens|uiries about
the city's prospects. I did some 'missionary work' for I'rince Rupert every
day, and did it gladly too."
OnY*('hristmas day Mr. Helgerson
expects to leave I'rince Rupert again
for Vancouver to complete an important deal, and thence will proceed
again lo Saskatoon lo tuke up the
pro|ierty there upon which he holds an
option al present.

Dangers of Tea Drinking
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, chief of the
bureau of chemistry in the United
Sum* department of agriculture, a
very noted ac:entiat, haa written a letter warning his countrymen and women of the danger of the excessive
uae of tea and coffee. He thinks it
safer to forbid its uae to children. He
aaya in regard to children, at least,
therefore, the word prohibition is perhaps a better one to use than temperance.
Coffee and tea drinking are habits
to a certain extent, and aa such should
be carefully watched. Dr. Wiley believes that if giving up the uae of either
should produce a headache to call a
halt. That caffein, the moat active
if the substance* in bo-h tea and coflce.
is recognised as one of thc habit forming
drugs, is Dr. Wiley's opinion.
The consequence' of over indulgence
.ire nervousness, disordered digestion
and a tendency to headache and de-1
preasion in the absence of the accustomed
drug These are quite serious enough
to make moderation imperative.

War Ak-ainst tha Fly
The Edinburgh Review is one of tho
latest authorities lo urge a war of
extern.inatiisn against the houaefly The
writer traces very ably the steps by
which bacilli have been foi-nd to be
the causes of sliseaac and the discovery
of means to destroy them or render
them harmless.
The fly carries microbes on its person and deposits them in milk or butter and meat and other articles of food
from which they are transferred to the
human body. It helps to disseminate
typhoid, cholera, tuberculosis, summer
d'arrhoca and other diseases. It should
b" destroyed and this is not a did cult
matter. Ita breeding placea are well
known. But for this destruction cooperation is necessary. With Ihe housefly It is believed many of those diseases
of northern countries which are most
destructive to human life will disappear.
The time to make preparations for
���he destruction or, better still, the extermination of "he housefly, is not in
the summer, when the rapidity with
which it breeds makes It almost impossible to remedy the evil, but In the
winter.   If all the lanes and yards were
perfectly clean in the spring the summer
plague ot (lies could be averted.
The best and simplest fly-killer is a
weak solution of formaldehyde in water
���two teaspoonfuls to the pint���placed
in plates or saucers throughout the
house. This is not offensive, and is
practically non-poisonous except to insects.
Tha Lonely Settler
Of the small acta of kindness which
women can do fcr others, few arc moro
important than that of sending reading
matter to lonely settlers. It ia quite
impossible for any one who has always
lived in a city to realize how much,
during the winter, people in the country
depend upon reading for entertainment.
The long dark nights and 'he short
stormy day* are indeed lonely and
dreary unleas the settler has something
to read. It ia pathetic to see how
eagerly men and women on islands or
in remote settlements await the arrival
of the mail which comes, perhaps, once
a month.
Then there are the lighthouses and
tbe deaerted canneries where one or
two people apend the winter season,
unable to leave their posts, even for a
few houra. How welcorre to some of
these people the late ma-guinea, which
are s-> seldom looked at by their owners
after the first week ia over would be.
Household Hints
To liani-h the odor of paint, place a
piln full of cold water in the room.
Toast wtfter is a southing and healing
drink for sufferers from bronchitis.
Cookbooks should be covered with
waxed paper to keep then- in good
condition.
Whiting mixed to a cream with tepid
water is excellent for dirty painted sur-
facea.
Sponging with hot vinegar will remove
an objectionable shine from woolen
garments.
Olive oil, slightly warmed, is excellent as a meana of softening the skin
around the nails.
When aand cannot be had, bath brick
can be used to scrub wooden articles,
tables, etc.
Pieces of rubber sponge in a mop
handle will be found excellent for taking
up dust, lint, etc., from hardwood floors
or from rugs. They may be used dry or
moistened.

THE MEANING OF THE VOTE
No ono, not even the most ardent temperance advocate can doubt after yesterday's vote that it is the wish of the majority of the eligible voters of Prince
Rupert that the licensed bar bc not abolished. Despite the light vote the substantial nature of tho "wet" majority, should make it easy for the temperance
men to reconcile themselves to defea' and join in to help those who are pledged
to see that tho license laws are properly enforced. A victory won by either side
by only n few votes would have caused heartburning and dissatisfaction. The
decisive ni.t ure of the result is one for which both parties may feel grattful.
Tho campaign on both sides win pushed with vigor. No one need have recriminations on thst score. The speakers were given respectful and attentive hearings.
Their arguments were well presented. Temptations to disorder were carefully
avoided. It was a fair Hold of the temperance party's own choosing, and they
cannot quarrel with the result.
Yesterday's decision gives a guarantee to the liquor men that hey can look
forward to being in possession fnr the next three years. Id all probability it will
mean a term' veiy much longer than that. If, during those three years the license-
holders conduct their houses in a manner that shows their desire to co-operate
with the ifli'-crs of tho law, it is unlikely that for a long time another effort will
be made to abolish licensed houses.
Nothing can bo gained by denying tho meaning of yesterday's victory to the
license-holders. It clearly showed that the majority of the voters who are
Interested in the issue prefer license lo no-license. It ia doubtful whether any
of the ititluencmbrought to bear in the conflict, save that of Mr. William Blakemore,
whose clever generalship accomplished even more than hia speeches, were of more
than negligible value. Their cry "A vote fur the Scott Act, is a vote against the
government," in the few cases where it was heeded probably did more harm than
good. There were many who voted against the Scott Act who would not vote
far tho government.
On the other hand, the campaign haa not been wasted to the temperance
party. It meant a rally of forces and a concentration of opinion that cannot ever
in the future be ignored. No future mayor of the city or future set of police commissioners can be blind to it. The contest has assured the citizens of a period of
law enforcement, even in the remote possibility of the mayoralty descending to
a weak and wire-pulled candidate.
Fnr one other thing the temperance party may be profoundly thankful. The
result of the vote haa absolved some of them from pledges of the most stupendous
character. Had the petition carried they were pledged to clean up the town. Tbe
ardors of the campaign would have proved trifling to that greater task that would
have fallen upon them. The adverse vote does nor release them from responsibility
as citizens *o sec that the law is enforced, but ;t cer-a'nly free* them from the
special responsibilities .,ome of their leaders assumed in the heat nf the conflict.
Yesterday as the punsters remarked was a sure enough wet day in Prince
Rupert. St. Swithin and John Barleycorn were in the ascendent. It was a fair
contest, well fought, fairly won and honorably lost. Now that it is over, let us
join hands again, and then to our several labors in building up Prince Rupert.

had been located in the mine of the
Western Canada Colleries, at Bellevue,
Alberta, where an explosion occurred
Friday. The dead include thirty-five
employees and ten members of a rescue
party from Hosmer and Frank who
went into the mine and were entombed.
All the missing have been accounted
for. It is thought that several injured
men will die. Hundreds of men have
arrived here from adjoining camps in
tbe Crow's Neat district to assist in
recovering the bodies.

Told That Sister Had Left Estate
Valued at $8000- Discover* That
First Payment Will Re Made on
31st February.
Denver, Colo., Dec 13.- As the result of a mysterious ana apparently
purposeless hoax, Mrs. Minis' Amcry
J. Hall of Beloit, Wis., is in Denver,
searching for her sistc,-, Mrs. Harriet
G. Rowe, who left her Wisconsin home
over thirty yours ago und from whom
Mrs. Hall has benrd no'hing for more
than fourteen years.
According to Mrs. Hall, list spring
she received a letter from Mead &
Bradley, lawyers, who gave their address as the ninth lloor ol tho Fulton
building, Denver. Th ���)��� informed her
that Mrs. Rowe had died here leaving
her an estate valued at $8000. Under
the terms of thc will, they declared,
they were compelled to hold the estate
in trust for three years, paying the
income over to Mrs. Hall. The first
payment would be made February Hi,
1911.
Another letter relative to the estate
followed about two weeks after the first
letter had been received and the the
correspondence ceased.
Receiving an answer tn the letter,
which she sent the lawyers, Mrs. Hall
finally decided to come to Denver. Upon her arrival here, she discovered that
there was no Fulton building and consequently no ninth floor; that there
was no such firm of lawyers as Mead Si
Bradley;  and that there waa no record

in twenty two burglarie** In the last two
months ' At first fvl*M Mitchell professed her ignorance ot Wandlaaa' calling,
but when the pol'ce confronted her
w'th the record of herself and pal. she
confessed everything without the slightest show of emotion.
The girl snys she was born on a "frozen
farm" in New Brunswick and lived
her early life surrounded by "frozen
faces," whereas she wanted life.
"Would I prefer to lead another sort
ol life?" she says, repeating a question
put to her. "Not if 1 had to go back
among 'frozen faces.' I have had .a lew
years of real life and sixteen years of
ice' and 1 don't wnat any more of the
latter."
Miss Mitchell, whose slang is of a
son that would ba'Ne Joshua Flint, but
who looks the picture of refinement, says
that "Jim," the name by which she
called \\ andlass, was the "cleanest and
smootiie-st man 1 over met.
"He never concealed a thing frim me
from the first," she said. I never heard
him swear and he treated me as gentle
and pretty as any man ever (rented a
lady. I would walk through the front
dstors of Hell for him and never blink
an eye."

HAS A ROMANCE
WOUNDED   BY   BULLETS   WHILE
ROBBING A HOUSE
Is the Son of Wealthy Parents-
Girl Accomplice Who Loves Him
Says He Is the Cleanest Man She
Ever Met.
New York. Dec. 12.���Son of a wealthy
mother, stepson of a consolidated stock
exchange broker and a few years ago a
prize-winning Sunday School scholar,
Thomaa Windlass lies in St. Mary's
hospital of Passaic, N. J., with an
even chance for recovery from bullet
wound* he received Thursday evening
while trying to rob a house.
W'andlasa' mother, Mrs. Augustus F.
Berner of Brooklyn, lays his downfall
to cheap novel reading. She made heroic efforts to reform him. but the boy
early took to the game of burglary and
followed it with the finesse of an expert.
Despite his cleverness Wandlass has
���pent eight of his 30 years in four different institutions and should the bullets that Theodore Tapley fired into
him not prove fatal, he will probably
bc far past middle age when he again
emerges from prison doors.
Interesting as is the life of this "gen-
tl-mun burglar" it is no more so than
thnt of Jean Mitchell, his companion
of late years, who today calmly related

REEF AT BL1CH ISLAND
Wireless. Massage Saves Crew and
Passengers���Operetor Hayes Retains Nerve Under Trying Circumstances���Flashes News of Disaster.
Seattle, Dec. 13.���A wireless message
received here at noon from Valde/. said
that the government launch Fort Liscurr
had landed there with a nurrber of
passengers from the Olympia which was
pounded to pieces on a reef near Bligh
Island this morning. The rest of the
paasengers, according to the wireless,
are safely housed at Kilcmar. Not a
single life was loat in thc wreck, the
message said.
The Olympia salied 'rom Cordova at
six o'clock Saturday ni<ht, having ar-
rved from Seattle earlier in the day.
She carried a number of passengers
who previously had Bailed on the steamship Northwestern, which went aground
at False Bay, San Juan Island, December
2.
The niglu was clear, but a 56-mile
gale was blowing when the ship started
for Valdez.
It ia believed that she struck the
reel at midnight, as .. wirelesss call for
aid was pickesl up at1 the naval wireless
opertting station shortly afterward.
The call was answered immediately
and Operator Hayts. aboard the wrecked
vessel, flashed the news that the Olympia
had struck the reef and that high .-cas
were breaking over her.
In the last measage received here
from the Olympia, Hayes said that the
lifeboats were ready for launching but
thut they would only be taken to as a
last resort. At the time the passengers
were calm in the face of peril und had
decided to remain on board ship and
await aid, unless the craft began to
go to pieces.

Marvelous Dividend Achievements
The Mutual Life Insurance Company
of New York paid in dividends in 1909
the sum of $11,005,914.96, an amount
without precedent in this country or in
any other. The Company has also
apportioned for payment ol dividends
in 1910 the enormous sum of $12,401,-
752.11, an amount greater by nearly two
millions than any other company has
ever paid in a single year. Indeed, of
157 companies doing business in the
United States, only 12, including industrial, had, up to January 1st, 1909,
paid during their entire existence as
large a total in dividends as the sum
apportioned by The Mutual Life for

R��5AD THE OPTIMIST
In order to commemorate the reign of
his late Majesty King Edward VII., the
Vancouver Daughters of the Empire
desire to erect a drink-'ng fountain. A
communication waa received at the special meeting of Vancouver city council
Monday from Mrs. Henshuw, the secre
tary of the organization, to this etTect.
The Daughters of the Empire suggested that the fountain should be erected
in front of the C. P. R. depot, or at the
corner of ('limbic and Hastings, or
t'arrall and Hastings, and asked the
council to decide how much ground
could be allotted for the purpose. The
council agreed that the mayor should
communicate with the C. P. R. and ask
them if there.was a satisfactory place
for the fountain.

It is told of King George that when he
was Prince of Wales, he was once
traveling incognito on an omnibus, when
the driver, having some trouble with one
of his horses, shouted to it:
"Come up, yer Royal 'Ighness! Come
up, will yer?"
1 The Prince asked the 'bus man why
he called his horse "Your Royal Highness."
"Well, sir," said the man, "that
horse is so 'orty and lazy, I call 'im
Yer Royal 'Ighness."
The Prinr e asked no more questions.

The utter depravity and ines-K>nsi-
bility of the "Weakly Wail" of South
Kort George is displayed in its last issue
when It stated that thc petition to the
government for thc improvement of the
Nechaco channel was not generally supported. 'In explanation be it noted
that the Wail is in charge of an "importation" in the absence of its youthful
dad.)
In the presence of said "importation"
the editor of the Wail signed the petition
and heartily endorsed ita object. His
signature was accompanied by over
twenty citizens and business men of
South Fort George.
To make good on the Wail staff
app'icanU must be full fledged disciples
of Ananias, utterly devoid of reason, and
able to throw a fit and frolh at thc
mouth at thc mere mention of Kort
George. Thc "importation" is making
good, though his initial work is perhaps
a little raw. The new disciple has overlooked one necessary lualification���a
good memory. But his three subscribers have stil' a glimmering hope that
he may yet attain thc heights of perfection that will put the old original
Ananias on the list of has-beens. The
sheet in question has no standing
whatever in thc province or community
and is an outcast in its own village.
Were its perpetrators responsible parties
il would long since have been brought to
account.���Fort George Tribune.

The Prince George made her debut
lor winter sen-ice in Prince Rupert
yesterday afternoon and the reception
accorded her waa in perfect keeping
with the excellent impression which
she created. As a bister ship to the
Piince Rupert which paid her last
adieu just a week ago today, she has
the same graceful lines and elegant
equipment as the "Rupert." Captain
J. E. L. Robertaon, who is one of the
bes_t acquainted men with the waters
of the north Pacific, and one of the
most popular men wearing an officer's
uniform, brought his craft to the wharf.
As his vessel steamed up the harbor
her beautiful proportions wore shown
to advantage. There waa en unusually
large crowd at the wharf waiting the
arrival of the boat, and in order to
avoid congestion it waa found expedient
to bring out the barrier.
Mr. D'Arcy Tata Arrives
The arrival of the Prince George had
a special interest for the people of
Prince Rupert. It was not the first
time the vessel had come within their
domain, but this time it brought with
it one who will have much to do with
negotiating the moat important iasue
that baa yet divided the opinions of
the people of the city. With the exception of the few people who were
down meeting friends, Mr. D'Arcy
Tate was "the observed of all observers."
Haa Bean  Refitted
Since she was laat here the accommodation arrangements of the Princ
George have been altered so that greater
facility is afforded for people who desire
suites of rooms; and these suites are
so arranged that the maximum of
privacy is attained along with the
maximum of con for . As regards the
comfort of passnegers everything possible is done to achieve it, and with so
much success that all the passengers
I who made the first trip up in her are
delighted. The catering is of a high
claaa order and squares with the other
qualifications of the ship. In replacing
the Prince Rupert by the Prince George
the G. T. P. are not at al) likely to be
censured on the ground of paying leas
attention to the needs of the travelling
public. Id every respect the Prince
George is equal to her sister ship and
in a 'ew respects she has got something
on her.
Brought Many Voter*
While Mr. D'Arcy TaU was perhaps
the most important personage which
the vessel brought to the city there
were others whose presence could scarcely
be ignored. There were Mr. and Mrs.
Fred Henning, the young couple who
were recently married in the city,
returning home from their honeymoon
trip. Mr. 0. M. Helgerson was also on
board, returning from Vancouver where
he had been in connection with his
extensive business. Many of the pas
sengera hurried away to the polling
booths to record their votes. "1 wish
she had kept away another hour," one
temperance worker was heard to remark
to another when he saw the haste with
which some of the passengers sought the
polling booth.
JACK COLLINS IS DEAD
Succumbs    to    Typhoid    Fevar    at
Kitselas
By telegram form Kitselas yesterday
word was received in the city that Jack
Collins died there yeaterday at 11 a.m.
{from typhoid (ever. Collins waa an
engineer, and waa employed in eng'neer-
jing work at Kitselas. In the same
capacity   he   had   worked   in   Prince
! Rupert some time ago, and was known
to  a number  of  friends in  the  city.
1 Deceased had also been aasoriated with
! the Provincial Police Force a number
of year*, ago.
STEAMER SINKS      $
IN QUICKSANDS
FATE OF THE PORTLAND WHICH
STRUCK A SUNKEN ROCK
Captain Moore Teatifiea That Ship
Waa in Usual Course When She
Struck���The Rock Had Not Been
Charted.
Seattle, Dec. 1.1.���That the steamship Portland, wh'rh struck a sunken
rock between Martin and Kyad ialands
as she was entering Katalla harbor is
now slowly sinking to destruction in
quicksand, developed in the testimony
of Capt. Franz S. Moore before the
local board of steamship inspectors.
The Portland was beached at the mouth
of the Katalla river when the tide waa in.
When the tide went out the steamer
began sinking in the mud and when
Capt. Moore left the scene had settled
twelve feet. From his testimony it is
believed that the vessel is doomed to
disappear completely.
Captain Moore testified that when
the boat struck she was following her
usual course. He had taken her over
that course many times before, he
stated, and was wrecked on a sunken
rock that bad not been charted.

While plying her way from Chemainus j
to  Prince  Rupert  the  Vancouver tug I
i Edith   met   with   a  peculiar  accident |
which battered  her considerably.    On
the 24th November she left the port of
Chemainus for this city towing a scow '
All went well for three days but on the !
fourth the tow line parted.    Captain
Jorgensen of the Edith endeavoured to
pick up the line again but only succeeded
in fouling her propeller.   A strong tide
waa running at the time with the result
that ahe finally collided with the scow-
sustaining considerable damage.
