PRINCE RUPERT. B.C.
A Hindu Woman'* Opinion
She has spoken at last, has the Hindu
woman. For years the object of pity
on .the part of her western sisters; pictured as the mere slave of a sensual
husband, the woman of tht Orient has
"come back" at the owman of the
Occident.
The critics are two Indian Indite, of
whom one is a queen, the Maharani of
Baroda, wife of the Gaekwar of that
state, and the other the Princess Pra-
tiva, a daughter of the Maharaja of
Kooch Keshub Chunder Sen.
The Mahurina of Baroda has twice
visited the United Suites. On the bust
visit, being pressed by the newspaper
men, she did say something. Her
highness's remarks are reported as
follows:
"The women of your big, vast, young
country, I confess, disappointed me. I
had heard so much of them; that they
equalled the French women in their
two most striking qualities of chic and
vivacity, that they dressed far better
than the English women; were as
coquettish its the Spanish: that they
were, in short, tts fascinating as the most
fascinating women in thc world���the
Russian.
"Well, they are not. They are less
chic than the French women, because
their clothes are more exaggerated, less
becoming, and not always appropriate
to the occasion.   .   .   .
"They dress better than the English
women but their clothing is not so
durable, suggests mothing of the solid
qualities of modesty and station, as do
the tweeds and broadcloths worn by the
English. Their coquetry is not attractive, for it possesses no sublety.
"I understand that some American
women make the proposals of marriage.
That I do not doubt after watching
them make themselves 'agreeable' to
a man at dinner. As for the fascinations
of the Russian women. No No No
The Russian women arc soft and feminine. The American women are masculine. The only softness about them
is tht stuffs with which they drape
themselves���not their souls."
The Princess Prativa, who was interviewed in l.i inl��>n. had this to say
concerning her western sisters:
"The women of the rest of the world
are so unhappy. We of India alone
know the art of happiness. We judge
a nation by the status of irs women,
and the status of the American women is eternal unrest. One woman
said lo mc: 'I have nothing but money,
and I'm iir�� d of that' They lack that
calm centre of philosophy wi.hout which
life is a whirlpool and the world is
in a vast turmoil. They talk loudly,
they try to be sprightly, and only succeed in making ugly faces. They are
not enough alone. They do not read
enough. They chatter too much' and
think too little."
And makes them yawn before he's gone
for little trundle beds.
Listen to the Sand Man knocking at the
door;
Listen to the Sand Man, he's been here
before.
The Sand Man is coming, dears, coming
from the skjes;
Sleepy tunes he's humming, dears, to
help you shut your eyes.

THE SAND MAN
A Rhyme for Very Little Folk*
The Sand Man is coming, dears, coming
from thc skies;
He has a little box of sand to throw in
little eyes,
From east and west he brings you rest,
and just before the night
He scatters sand about the land and
shuts your eyelids tight.
When little folks arc tired of noise, and
put   their   heads in laps,
He gnyly dances over hills with pockets
full of naps;
And up ho climbs at sleepy times to
sleepy little heads,
The King's Gloved Hand
It is not generally known that King
George's custom of appearing with his
right hand gloved and the other bare I
has its origin in something more than a \
mere  whim of  fashion.    The  wearing!
of a glove on the right hand by a mon-'
arch is a distinct survival of the days
when the sovereign's touch  was  held
to be a ctrtain cure for all kinds of
diseases, especially scrofula.   In thc days
when at certain dates it was eust ornery

POOR SEASON
FOR HALIBUT
BAD   LUCK
DURING
MONTHS
LAST   FEW
Extremely Cold Weather, Lack of
Good Bait and Costly Accidents
Are the Contributing Factors in
Poorest Catch Ever Known.
This season's halibut is proving the
poorest ever known. Bad luck seems
to have followod the boats the last few
months. Extremely bad weather, lack
of good bait, and many costly accidents
have had the tendency to depress the
men in the fishing business.
Practically no halibut are coming in
and this condition will prevail through
February. Fishermen do not look for
any catch until the middle of March.

G. T. P. SERVICE
TO BE CHANGED
PROPOSED ALTERATION IN THE
STEAMER SCHEDULES
Captain Nicholion Hai Left Vancou
ver for Winnipeg to Confer With
Head Officer*���Important Development* Are Said to Be Pending.
Vancouver, Feb. 3.���Captain C. H.
Nicholson, manager of the Grand Trunk
Pacific steamships, left for Winnipeg
yesterday, where he will confer with
the head officers of the G. T. P. regarding
a number of important matters concerning thc company's affairs in Vancouver. When Captain Nicholson returns in about three weeks' time it is
expected he will have at least two
important announcements to niBke.
One of these will bc in connection
with the reported purchase of the Albion Iron Woiks site and wharf at
the north and of main street. This
property has been under option to the
Grand Trunk Pacific for some time,
and thc only thing that is understood
to have prevented the deal going through
wits the probable cost of making wharfage extensions to thc present dockage
facilities. Soundings and .i.is in front
of thc. Albion Iron Works wharf have
been going on for some time, with a
view to determining whether the construction of a new pier there would be
as costly as in the case of the new
C. P. R. piers, which, owing to the
rocky nature of the bottom, had to
have sufficient earth brought there
by a dredge and dump scows to make
a foundation to drive the piles in.
Enough data is said to have been secured now to enable Captain Nicholson
to lay the matter before the head officials of the company with a fairly close
estimate of the cost. It is expected they
will sanction the deal.
The other matters upon which Captain Nicholson will confer with the
management of the G. T. P. is the question of changes in tht running schedule
for the company's steamers between this
port  and   I'rince  Rupert.    It  is  pro-

WORKERS DEMAND
INCREASE IN PAY
Continued from page 1,
luck i'ix WuekB).   Witness explained that
rock work wore out  boots faster, and I
lhat they sometin.es got snugged.
Alderman Pattullo:  How many days'
work a month will a man average?"
Mr. Fisher:   "From my experience I
should say about 'iO days."
Mr. Caseyi "My oxporience is about
22 days."
Continuing, Mr. Casey Balds "I am a
married man, and have my hands full
as such, trying to struggle out an existence." His wages had averaged
$!i.G0 per day. He had averaged 22
days' work per month which came
out a deficit, of $<i.80. One month's
wages $79.20. Cost of living for th.
mom h $86 for self, wife and four childn n.
More    Comparisons
Mr. Carroll, the next witness, said,
"ihe avi rage COBt woultl be about $12.50
permonth."   He Wont on to say ihat hi
tended taking out their pap.rs in due' tfc
time, if they could see a chance of living '
respectably.    "Bui,"  he added,  "they |
can't."
Alderman Hilditch said hp did not
think the council intended at, any
time to discriminate between British
and American subjects. The only
preference th'jy ever contemplated was
for married men and permanent citizens.
Decision Deferred
After some loose discussion Alderman
Hilditch closed the conference. He said:
"I consider this the most important
question Prince Rupert has ever had to
decide. I consider (.hat I cannot attempt to give this question decision
right off hand. Tht statements made
will be weighetl and taken for what ihey I TV
are worth. 1 think the unswtr will be si
ready inside of two weeks." -��-

to Rupert, antl have not laid ofT any day
for sickness or other reasons?"
Witness: "The only day I have laid
off is today." In answer to Alderman
Hilditch Mr. Carroll said that on his
lirst pay day in Rupert he drew $2*1.001
and on the second $1!��5. In January
for 22 days' work he drew $66. There
was a holiday on New Year's Day but
witness had worketl on the Monday.
Mr. Carroll said that in San Francisco
you could gi. a comfortable room und
board for $20 per month.
Ashamed of Existence
Mr. Morst then gave his stutcment.
He suid that I hi men working on the
streets in Prince Ru|>ert were simply
ashamed lo tell their friends the way
ihey were existing. He took Rossland,
B. C. und said that there machine
men get $3.50 for 8 hours, and muckers
$;'. A shack in Rossland which in
Rupert would cost $17 per month he
hud rented for $6. Bourd there would
come to $1 a day straight.
No Concessions Just Dues
Alderman Hilditch in reply to Mr.
Fra-ser took exception to the use of thc
word "concuision". There were to be
no concc��ions made to the workers.
The workers would get their just dues
If lhe 45-ctnt increase were granletl it
would be granted as a ri:.l't not hj a
concession. He asked Mr. Fraser If
he approved of t lie action of the Spokane
municipality in taking away contracts
from contractors and putting it on a
day's labor basis.
Mr. Fraser said he did not approve
of this, but he tlid not approve of municipal work being given only to citizens
of property owners or with preference
to uny class whatever.
Alderman Hilditch: "I wunt you to
\ take into consideration the small
amount of justice thut is coming to the
taxpayer on this question, Would your
organism ion think it fair for u man who
went up to Stewart fyr the summer for
better wages uml cume buck lo Ruperi
in the winter to huve lhe same treatment as the permanent resident here?"
Mr. Fraser: "The taxpayer knows
perfectly well thai it would not be fair
to discriminate against a man who is
not a taxpayer."
Lowest Wages Ever
Mr. Maitland who was asked to give
evidence said that he thought the council
should prefer the work r who is a citizen.
He said he hatl worked in Rossland and
in other ci.ies on the coast and Prince
Rupert gave the lowest wages he had
ever werked for.
Anothti worker, a trades' union man,
said that no murriid man could do
justice to his wife and children on $.')
a day in this city,by the time everything
had been taken into consideration it
could not be done. He did not think
preference should Im' given only to
British subjects as there wore many
good  American  citizens  here who  in-
