NDUSTRIAL WORKERS TO
MAKE PROTEST TO COUNCIL
en Resent the Sidetracking Move and Demand That
the Council Keep Their Pre-Election Promises
���Will Send Deputation to Council
At a business meeting of the Prince
inert Industrial Association held after
general mass meeting on Sunday
��ht it was resolved that the Association
on record as in favor of the rejection
the idea of an appeal to a plebiscite
tin- part of the council. To this
olution was added a further reso-
lion Ihul the council be held to their
omises made prior to their election,
tee resolutions were carried unani-
-usly, and will be presented to the
y council tonight.
Representatives of the P. R. I. A.
Ittend the session of the council
night, and after the council adjourns
meeting ol the workers will assemble
iheir hull to discuss the council's
titude.   The feeling that . an effort
is being made to sidetrack the question
of the increase by the appeal to a
plebiscite is strong with the workers.
At last night's meeting there was also
expressed the question "Has the city
council the power to refer this matter
to a plebiscite when there has been no
publicly expressed opposition to it
though opportunity was given for contractors or others to say their say
against it?" This power the P. R. I. A.
feels the council has not.
Last night's general meeting was
thronged. The secretary was kept
busy the whole time enrolling new-
members, about fifty of whom joined.
There is a growing attendance of women
workers, and as the organisation of the
P. R. I. A. includes all wage-earners a
strong membership of women wage-
earners is confidently anticipated.

RUSSIAN TROOPS PREPARE

Are Concentrating on the Chinese Frontier���Britain
and Russia Are At the Parting of the Ways
in International Relations
(Special to the Optimist)
St. Petersburg, Feb. 20.���Orders for
the concentration of troops on the
Chinese frontier preparatory to the
seizure of the Chinese district of Kulfja
have been ordered. This step was
ordered as a result of the reply from
China to Russia's note. The reply
of the Chinese government falls far
short of the CW's demands An
ultimatum may be expected to issue
at any moment.
London, Feb. 20. -Any action which
Russia may take in the present Russo-
Chinese deadlock may be expected
to seriously affect the official relations
of England and Russia. For some
time  past   Englund  has stood  ut   the
looked upon as an abandonment by
the Czar of England's friendship. England has always been understood as
the friend of China. The breach is all
the more serious because of the obvious
fact ihat Russia is co-operating with
Japan.
While Russia has advanced the plague
as a reason for proclaiming martial law
at Harbin, ihe move is accepted in
British official circles us the first step
to bring about hostilities with China.

CHORUS OF PROTEST AGAINST RECIPROCITY
CONSERVATIVE PRESS OF BRITAIN FEELS CERTAIN THAT CANADA WILL
RENOUNCE IMPERIAL IDEA IF RECIPROCITY CARRIES
NINETEEN TORONTO MERCHANTS OPPOSE IT
They Look With Fear Lest Trade Channels Should Develop North and South Instead of East and West-Also Fear Lest the Ties of Empire Should
Be Loosed���Also Lest Unrestricted Reciprocity Should
Follow Successful Working of the Treaty
ex M. P., one of the original promoters A Grave Imperial Crl.i.

as follows in the London Times, "Can-1 rjerby urges the unionists here not lo

would   deeply   deplore   the   rejection
of the great Imperial policy, and of the
incalculable trading advantages which
must then pass into the hands of our
astute commercial rivals."
iSpecial to the Optimist)
Toronto,   Feb.   20.   -Protesting
thai
if the reciprocity proposals are carried
out the channels of Canada's trade
would be diverted North and South
instead of East and West, nineteen
prominent merchants and bankers of
Toronto, former supporters of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, placed themselves on
record today as opposed to the reeip-
procity treaty.
They also stated in their resolution
that they were of opinion that reciprocity would weaken the bonds of
Empire, because unrestricted reciprocity
would be sure to follow after the first
treaty had been working some time.

Sheffield, Feb. 20.���The Daily Telegraph says: "Thc programme of thc

discussed the position of affairs with
Mr. Jos. Chamberlain who thinks lhat
a grave crisis within the Empire has been
reached.
London. Feb. 20. Correspondents in

Letemps today to the following effect:
"This relaxation of bonds that connects
England and Canada looks bad. It
completes a new picture already sketched, with other trails of England appearing
more hestitating but less realistic."

A "Swell1' Wedding
Fashionable New York had something to interest it during the week
when Miss Vivian Gould became the
wife of Baron Decies. Miss Gould is
18, and her English husband -14 years
old. For sumptuousness and lavish
display, the wedding is said to have
outdone anything of recent years.
Miss Gould is said to have looked
particularly   young   and   girlish   and
appeared perfectly unconscious of the
interest taken in her finery.   She was
attired in a magnificent gown of white
duchess   satin,   in   semi-empire   style
1 and   heavily   embroidered   with   silver
j roses.   The court train was eight yards
long and was edged with an embroidery
; in seed pearls and silver, following the
! designs of bunches of rose leaves tied
, together   with   a   lover's   knot.     The
i veil of Brussels net was fastened to the
, coiffure with a tiara of orange blossoms.
; Miss Gould carried a bouquet of orange
, blossoms and white bride roses.    She
| plans to wear her bridal gown at the
j coronation of King George and at her
I presentation  to  thc  English  court  in
June.
The bridesmaids' gowns were of
white chiffon over white satin, trimmed with festoons of sea green ribbon. The gowns were in the high
waisted empire style. The hats were
of white chiffon, trimmed with green.
The bride's dress was made in Paris,
as was the rest of her trousseau, on
which she spent, according lo a reliable
report, the sum of $40,000.
Those who like to follow the elaborate
weddings among New York's millionaires estimate the total cost of Miss
Vivien's transformation into Lady Decies
at close to $76,000, to say nothing of
the dowry of several millions that she
will take to her titled husband
The wedding presents were among
the most beautiful and costly ever
received by a New York bride, although they did  not equal  those re-
Horror, of Forced Feeding
Miss Sylvia Paukhurst, a noble member of a noble family, spoke on "Life
in a London Prison," in Winnipeg last
week.
This is how a lady describes the
impressions made on her by the lecture:
"She is a beautiful, refined young
woman of 22. Her voice is musical,
her manner free from self-consciousness,
and the chief charm of her speaking lies
in her earnestness.
"Very simply but powerfully she told
us of her prison experiences. She was
one of the first to suffer for the cause. She
and other suffragettes were forced to
strip; they were searched; they had to
scramble for prison suits which were
thrown in a heap on the floor. Miss
Pankhurst's description of their prison
garb was most amusing and pathetic;
but when she described the cells and
the food we felt the horror of it all,
the sacrifice and the suffering. After
submitting to this sort of thing for
some time, the suffragettes came to the
conclusion "We are political prisoners.
Why are we not treated as such?"
Now you know political prisoners are
allowed their own clothes; they are
allowed visitors; in fact, they can do
almost anything except leave the prison. So the suffragettes refused to strip
and submit to the indignities which
they considered degrading. Their clothes
were literally torn from them, they were
thrown into filthy cells.
"Later one of their number, a woman
who had influential friends, refused to
take food. She was tempted with delicacies, but remained firm, though day
by day she grew weaker. It was found
she had a weak heart. If she should
die, her friends would probably make
trouble, so she was released. Other
suffragettes tried the same plan, but
Asquith ordered them to be forcibly
fed. Forcible feeding sounds harmless to one who knows nothing about
it. It is so severe that it is seldom resorted to���except in the case of suffra*.
gettes. A tube is forced through either
the nose or mouth into the stomach.
There is serious danger of it going
astray and injuring the lungs or heart,
and it always causes serious digestive
troubles. When the tube is being
removed it feels as if the whole nose
and throat were being torn out. To
show the seriousness of the ordeal, Miss
Pankhurst cited two cases of common
criminals who were forcibly fed. In
one case a man died after the second
feeding. In the othor case a woman
committed suicide after the second
feeding. Yet hundreds of delicate,
refined women have suffered this for
the cause, and hundreds are prepared to
do it again."

strength to wring more and more aid
from it as the years go on.
So fur as British Columbiu is concerned, the arguments aguinst recipro-
ciyt almost answer themselves. If this
province is to become a munufucturing
province, it must huve cheuper food.
Indeed, nothing strikes us us more
ridiculous thun thut a province which
notoriously has to import the greater
part of the food it consumes should be
deemed to be opposed to uny legislution
which will muke expenditure for food
fall more lightly upon the consumer.
As to our grout exporting industries,
the lumber trade seems quite satisfied
with the situution, while the American
market will be opened to our fisheries.
"Were it not that the Government at
Victoria sees some chance to muke u
little politicul cupitul, and that the word
hus gone forth to its royul press, we
should hear very little indeed, in this
province at all events, ol opposition to
the treaty."���Vancouver World.
THE MOTHERS
(By Harold Trowbridge I'ulsiferl
The Mother.
Daughter of mine, bride of my son,
Radiant-eyed from the love you have
won,
Little you dreamed nf the long sweet
years,
The fledging hopes and the half-thought
fears,
The spoken joy and the hidden tears;
Little you dreamed���and less you knew
How much of my life I gave to you.
The Bride.
Mother of mine, so long unknown,
You that have called my boy your own,
What can you know of thc love I bring,
The hope in my heart, thc lilt and swing
Of life new-touched with an angel's wing?
Mother of mine with the lonely eyes,
Has my love meant no sacrifice?
The Mother
Daughter of mine, bride of my son,
Flushed with the hope of your life begun,
What huve you known of vigils kept
In the desert land where Hugar wept
When God forgot and the angels slept?
Whence came thc light within your eyes
That makes your face so mother-wise?
The Bride.
Mother of mine, I saw your smiles,
The teur-wct (lowers of tender wiles,
Is the garden of life for you less fair?
Is the rose of love no longer there?
What is the hope I cannot shure?
Mother of mine, who huve loved so well,
Are mother-hcurts born with the marriage bell?
The Mothers.
Sister of mine in motherhood,
How can he dream of the half we know,
We-that have kept and understood
The lover's law of sun and snow?
How can our boy, so wistful-eyed,
Child that he is in mother-land.
Fathom the depths of love and pride
That guard his life on cither hand?
Love as old as thc ancient hills,
As new as the youngest flower���
This is the living spring that fills
His child-heart hour by hour.
We that are mothers of one have been
Mothers of all since time began,
Holding the cross of the whole world's
sin,
For the love we beur to the child in mun

Loyalty, Imperialism and Reciprocity
Conservatives both in this country and in Great Britain make a great parade
of their loyalty and their Imperialism. That, as the Victoria Times has pointed
out, "is part of their stock-in-trade with which to bamboozle the electorate,"
That kind of appeal to patriotism which Dr. Samuel Johnson described as, "the
last resort of the scoundrel," has been suddenly brought to the front by a sudden
turn in the reciprocity discussion.   It is a noteworthy and significant circumstance.
It wits the Hon. George E. Foster who raised the annexation cry in the House
of Commons while discussing the reciprocity treaty���Hon. Geo. E., an ex-professor
of political economy, an ex-linance minister, ex-manager of the Union Trust Co.,
a DUUI with B reputation u an astute financial critic who raised the cry to blind
and unreasoning passion. The incident is illuminative. Il looked like the last
resort, if not of a scoundrel, at least of an economist hard driven to find valid
reasons for opposing reciprocity. It is no wonder that some of the more responsible Conservative journals have refused to take up the cry, and flout the idea that
Canada's loyalty to the Empire is threatened by the prospect of better trade relations with the United States.
But in raising the cry that annexation will follow reciprocity, the Conservative
party are stone blind to the facts of history. They forget, if some of them ever
knew, lhat in 1891, a Conservative government under the late Sir John A. Macdonald, instituted negotaitions for the bringing about of a somewhat similar reciprocity treaty as that now before the people of Canada and yhe United States.
The correspondence connected with those negotiations was made public at
the time of the dissolution of the sixth Parliament in February 181)1. At that
time Lord Stanley was Governor-General of Canada, and he wrote to the Secretary
of State for the Colonies, a letter, summarising thc principal points upon which the
agreement was desired. These provided for (1) a renewal of the reciprocity treaty
of 1854, with certain modifications; (2j reconsideration of the treaty of 1888 with
respect to thc Atlantic fisheries, so as to allow fishermen of either country to purchase bait and ship cargoes on either side of the line, free of duty; (3; mutual
protection of Atlantic mackerel fisheries from spoliation; (A) relaxation of coasting
laws; (6) mutual salvage and saving of wrecked vessels; (6; relaxation of sea board
laws of both countries; antl 7. arrangements for settling Alaska boundary dispute.
The mast importitnt clause was t he first, providing for the renewal of the reciprocity
treaty of 1854 under which, grain, bread, Hour, all manner of meats, seeds, vegetables, fish and lish products, poultry, cgRS, hides, furs, butter, cheese, ores, coal,
pitch, timber an lumber, lire ood, dyestuffs, flax, hemp, tow, raw tobacco and
several other articles, were admitted free.
The treaty of 1854 which Sir John A. Macdonald sought to have revived, and
tht* present treaty now before the two countries are not identical. But they are
sultstantially alike. Of all men in the world to know the facts of the case, Hon.
Geo. E. Foster is the man, for exactly twenty years ago to the month, when the
measure was before the Cabinet, one reads in an old Ottawa Citizen, dated February 7th, 1891, "The campaign opened yesterday when Sir John A. Macdonald,
Hon. Geo. E. Foster, Hon. Mackenzie Bowell and others addressed a huge meeting
in the auditorium al Toronto." Reciprocity as advocated by Sir John Macdonald
an I his Cabinet was not unknown to llo.i. Geo. E. Foster in those days.
Apparently the members of the Conservative party did not consider reciprocity sure to lead to annexation in those days, even though Canada was a fledgling
among the nations antl annexation was openly advocated in some quarters. Neither
did the frainers of the National Policy, who ruled the country from 1878 to 1896
appear lo consider a renewal of thc reciprocity treaty of 1854 a violation of the
National Policy, nor a menace to our Imperial relations.
For Hon. Geo. E. Foster and his htnchrrtn to atwrrpt to ralta the cry of
annexation today, whin Canada has beet me a nation wilh a national spirit, is
absurd to the limits of fonlishi ess.   There is no disproving the cold facts of history

Jeremiah H. Kugler
That    Christianity    and   the   gnat
Socialist movement are the two great
altrui tic forces on which thp redemption
of  the   world   from   poverty   antl   injustice depends, antl that neither could
succeed without the aid of the other,
was  the  conclusion  reached  by  Rev.
W. H. McLeod last night in B vigorous
dermon before the Baptist Church, on
"Christianity antl the Social Problem."
Briefly sketching some of the awful
tragedies of want  caused through unemployment,  as  he  hud  witnessed   it
In the large labor centres of the United
States, he showed how while thc church
had   been   engaged   in   counteracting
'the  effects,  many  of  the  sociologists
hatl been at work trying to cope with
the causes of poverty.
Hc disagreed with those socialists
who looked for it great revolutionary
change. The social body was like the
human body. When a man became ill'
he could not step into a new ready made
body; he had to find out the cause
of his malady, stimulate his vital energies, and uct|Uire a new body by
slowly recreating the old one. So
with society, it was to be recreated by
slow evolution rather than by a sudden
revolution.
The Christian Church he said needed
the co-operation of the Socialist movement to make its efforts practical; the
Socialist movement needed the Church
to keep its ideals lofty. With a cooper tion of the two great forces, which
at present he confessed viewed one
another with a great deal of distrust,
the coming of a more heavcnlike kingdom
upon earth would be made possible.
The sermon was listened to by a
large congregation, who followed the
preacher with deep interest.

"I told a friend of mine to sing instead
of brooding over his troubles."
"Good advice "
"I don't think so. Every time hc
gets a little bit worried now everybody
in the building ha to suffer "
"What is thc difference between firmness and obstinacy?"asked a young lady
of her fiance.
"Firmness," was his gallant reply, "is
a noble characteristic of women; obstinacy is a lamentable defect in men."
"So you wish," asked the father of the
beautiful heire s, "to assume the bonds
of matrimony?"
"Yes," replied the titled foreigner, "if
you will guarantee thut they will pay
regular dividends."
"Then wealth doesn't bring happiness?"
"No. Since we inherited money my
people don't want me to loaf in the
grocery. And I can't get no comfort
out of loafing in a bank. Thc hours
are too short."

Man Wants but Little
What a man wants in a woman is
somewhat as follows:
She must be a dream of beauty.
She must be an angel with the smile
of a seraph and a great mass of mag-1
nificent hair���all her own.
She must possess a perfect temper
and never raise her voice save in a song. |
She must be a splendid housekeeper!
and not require any servants.
She must love children and be able
to tend to them.
She must be a fine musician and
have a mind stored with all the intellect and wealth of ages, but must never
get the idea that hubby hasn't the
superior intellect and doesn't know
everything.
She must dress in the latest fashion
but must spend no money in doing so.
She must be interesting, elusive,
gay, of a deep religious nature, lively,
modest, retiring, self-sacrificing, brilliant, fascinating, but a lover of home
and fireside preferring the society of
her husband to anything else on earth,
but not worrying when she doesn't get
any of it.
That iB all that most n.-n require.

COAL NOTICK
WHOSE WAGON IS IT;
Complicated Question of Ownership
Before Judge Young
Before Judge Young Saturday the
dispute between Jim PetrotT and Pete
Glomitch over the ownership of a wagon,
came up remitted from the police court
where the charge of unlawfully ap-
proj Hating the wagon had been preferred
against Glomitch. Judge Young after
hearing evidence decided to dismiss
the criminal charge. The ownership
question is complicated, there having
been evidently a partnership between
the men though no documents, exist
relating to it. But both men seem to
have laid out money over the wagon,
and the question of whoso it really is,
remains to be decided by thc court.

Eric Jahnsen who was found intoxicated the other day and waa kept

The indignation felt by the citizens
of Stewart at the Government, for
refusing them incorporation, in face
of the promises of aid given by Hon.
Richard McBride to the Stewart deputation, continues unabated. The Portland Canal Miner comes out again this
week with the headline over its front
page, saying "Stewart Citizens Demand
Right of Self Government."
As if this is not enough to make their
indignation clear, the Miner has also
the following to say editorially:
"In a letter addressed to T. J. Vaughan
Rhys, chairman of the citizens' committee, Mr. Munson, M. P. P., says
that the government will not grant
Stewurt incorporation during the present |
session and quotes a letter received by
him from the Premier us follows: 'I
beg to acknowledge your favor of
January 26th with reference to the
request for the incorporation of Stewart.
On a survey of the situation the government considers that it would be better
to defer for the present the incorporation
of Stewart aa a city. Under the terms
of the general act, incorporation can
take place during the recess of the
legislature if it be found advisable to
do so.' Bearing in mind the Premier's
well known integrity and directness of
purpose The Miner finds it somewhat
hard to reconcile this letter with the
assurance that he guve the delegution
which went lo Prince Rupert und
interviewed  him  on  this subject  last
November. Either the members of
this commission were deceived themselves or else they deceived the people
of Stewart, for they reported at a
public meeting held on November 17th
that if the people of the old townsite
wanted incorporation they had the
assurance of Mr. McBride thut the
same would be grunted whether or
not thc Mann interests were included.

Realising that it was only brought
forward to arouse British opposition to
the reciprocity treaty, they prorhptly
put it to the vote in committee and
reported, ut once. It was killed by
nine voles to one. Bennett himself
was the only one who voted for it.

Niaraga Fruit Growers Support Reciprocity  Proposal
After all the reports of the alleged
hostility of fruit growers all over Canada
to reciprocity, it is interesting to read
the report of the Stamford Fruit
Growers' Association at Niagara Falls.
Reciprocity came up for discussion
and one mun, Egerton Morden, the
veteran nurseryman und fruit-grower,
who wus Fruit Commissioner for On-
turio ut the Pan-American Exhibition,
combatted the statements of the protectionists. He completely knocked
out the loss of the western market bogey
by showing the advuntnge to be obtained
through free access to the markets of
40,000,000 Americans living within live
hours' ralway radius of Niagara Falls.
Secretary Thomas R. Stokes said
that reciprocity was the best thing he
had ever heard of. It was like a 50
per cent raise in wages. He declared
it was thc only salvation for thc grape
und berry growing industries of Ontario. He asserted that Uje whole opposition came from the "ten million
dollar canners' combine," und the wine
manufacturers, and the buyers who
catered to the Canadian markets.
Nobody dared put a resolution opposing the treuty. The whole sentiment was overwhelmingly in favor of
recoprocity. Many declared they would
help arrange a counter-deputation to
Ottawa to support the passage of the bill
