GOVT. HAS RIGHT
TO TAX LANDS
AND WILL COLLECT $300,000 ARREARS IN NELSON
Firat Legal Decision Appealed by
C. P. R. but la Upheld Taxes on
Railway Land Will Amount to
$75,000 a Year.
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, Jan. 20.-The Court of
Appeal has upheld the decision of
R. S. Lennie in the judicial court of
Revision, NclBon, to the effect that the
Provincial Government has the power
to tax lands of the B. C. Southern
Railway. The decision was opposed
in court by the C. P. R- but tho previous opinion was confirmed that the
government had the right to tax.
This judgment menns that the government has the right to collect taxes
for the last four years, ever since, in
fact, the land became taxable. It is
estimated that the taxes on the railway
will amount to J76.000 a year or $300,000
in all.
(Special to the Optimist)
Saulte Ste. Marie, Jan. 20.—It has
just been discovered here that Dr
Beattie Nesbitt, president of the Farmers' Bank of Toronto, who is badly
wanted in that city in connection with
a charge of misappropriation of funds
and making false returns to the government arrived in this city on Sunday.
From the evidence gathered here he
appears to have left for Chicago on
Monday. He was observed in the Park
Hotel under the name of W. Neshil.
He is reported to be well supplied with
money.
AMERICAN SHIP
IS IN DISTRESS
SEEN OFF VICTORIA WITH BOTH
MASTS GONE

(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, Jan. 20.—The American
schooner Star of San Francisco passed
the straits today with the fore and main
masts gone. When sighted a thirty-
eight mile wind was blowing. The
vessel seemed to be in a sore plight but
it waB quite impossible under the cir-
cumBtanccs to render her any assistance
from the shore.
UNITED STATES DECLARED
UTTERLY UNREADY FOR WAR
Representative W. E. Humphrey of Washington Causes
Great Scare—Says Japan Could Seize Pacific
Coast Towns Before States Could Get
75,000 Men to the Front
(Special to the Optimist)
New York, Jan. 19.—At a great
banquet here tonight Representative
\V. E. Humphrey of Washington, created
a sensation by declaring emphatically
that he knew his country to be utterly
unprepared for war. In tones that
cut like knife-stabs at hiB hearers, he
declared that Japan could seize Seattle,
Tacoma, Portland, the Bremerton government naval yard and five transcontinental railways before the United
States could get 76,000 ment o the front.
Representative Humphrey's assertion
caused a great sensation. Immediately
the banquet broke up the news was
spread throughout the great city and
the  wires  carried   the  dread   message
swiftly all over the continent. Coming
on the back of all ihe invidious rumors
regarding the secret operations of the
Japs in the Pacific waters it seemed to
carry a double significance. It was
no unsupported statement such as
might result from brain s.orm or hysteria. It was a cold and obvious calculation of a situation that is very
seldom considered by the dollar dazzled
leaders of the country.

VILLAGE GOES MAD
People Are Bitten by   Coyotes Suffering from Rabies
Baker City, Oregon, Jan. 20. -(Special)—A band of coyotes suffering from
rabies charged in upon a village in this
vicinity today and several of the villagers were bitten. The mad villagers
armed themselves and will wage war
on the coyotes.
Many perople have left the place
hurriedly in fear that the dread disease
will spread. A general panic prevails
and it is difficult to get any definite
information regarding the condition
of the village.
RAINBOW IS

place she is expected to obtain some
recruits.
HAS ASSURANCE THAT RAILWAY
EXTENSION WILL START SOON
Members of Legislature Invited to
See Premier Turn First Sod Will
Stimulate Business on Island—
Premier     Introduces   Bill.
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, Jan. 20. In the house
yesterday Mr. Jardine, the member
for Esquimalt, exploded I bomb when
at the afternoon session he rose to hiB
feet and delivered a speech in support
of the government's policy. On m-vi ral
occasions in the course of his speech
he attacked the arguments of Mr. Brew
ster, the member for Alberni.
He said that he had an assurance
that the Victoria Hareli.y sound ex-
U nsion of the Canadian Northern
Railway would be started within thirty
days and that the members of the
Legislature would be invited to s
the Premier turn the first sod. After
having voted for the bill last year it
had been his intention to resign if
the bill did not prove to be in the
Interest! of the people. None however
had disapproved of the scheme.
The advent of tile railway would
stimulate business all over the Island.
The Premier introduced a bill to
amend the Coal Mines Act. The
object of the bill is to ensure greater
safety for the lives of the mine employees.
SNOW  BLOCKADE

much, and a woman to be successfu'
must be able to meet the exacting requirements of the business. Women of
large incomes who take advantage of
the protection afforded by life insurance
frequently, if not always, prefer to contract for the life insurance they require
through keen women agents. Life insurance as a career for women is not to
be reckoned as a refuge for those who
have failed in everything else, but as a
profession in which every ability, every
energy and all skill may be used to the
highest possible afvantage.

A wedding of much interest to the
people of Prince Rupert was quietly
solemnized yesterday afternoon by the
Rev. F. W. Kerr at the residence of
Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Williams, when
Miss Eva Ray was united in marriage
to Dr. Neil M. McNeill of this city.
The bride who was attended by little
Doris Pattullo, wore a handsome dress
of white satin and the regulation veil
and orange blossoms and carried a
bouquet of white carnatiDns, was given
away by Mr. Williams. Mr. C. H.
Orme was best man. As the bride
entered the beautifully decorated drawing
room Mrs. Williams played the Wedding
March. The groom's gift to the bride
was a piano and a valuable lot. To
the flower girl he gave a gold pin.
After the ceremony a dejeuner was
served at several tables decorated with
white flowers and green leaves.    The
happy couple left by the Prince George
for a month's trip to  California, the
bride   looking   particularly   handsome
in a smart travelling suit of Alice blue
cloth and a large white hat.   On their
return to the city Dr. and Mrs. McNeill
will occupy a suite in the Clapp building
corner of Second avenue and McBride
street.    Among  the  guests were   Mr.
and Mrs. A. M. Manson, Mr. and Mrs.
T.  D.  Pattullo,   Miss  Doris Tattullo
Mr. and Mrs. Donald McLeod, Mr. and
Mrs. A. J. Morris, Mr. Peck, Mr. Orme.
Mr.   McClymont,   Mr.   McRae,   Mr.
Deacon and Mr. Denholme.
A Girl's Evening Coiffre
In the evening there is naturally a
desire to arrange the hair in a somewhat more elaborate manner than
is suitable with a school dress. As a
rule however, if a becoming means of
arranging it has been found it is best
to keep to it until the fashion has
been outgrown, and the bright colored
ribbons will dress it up nicely.
When the hair has been regularly put
up a simple twining of ribbon about
the knot is attractive in the evening
or a cluster of tiny rose buds may be
placed at a becoming angle against the
knot. It is the fashion of the moment,
hoewver, to wear no ornament or I
flowers in the coiffure save a costly I
jeweled band or really handsome or- j
nament, such as would be most inappropriate for a girl not yet "out," and '
at the smartest dances the majority of
girls present wear no ornnments, not
even the pretty flower wreaths, in their
hair.
Ribbon run through pieces, or,
rather, strands of hair, has gone out of
vogue, but narrow bands of silk or
satin twisted about the knot give an
undeniably pretty touch of color just
where it will show most becomingly.
White is not as a rule so becoming
against the hair as a brighter shade,
but any pale shade which matches the
gown will carry out the color effect of
the dress eattractivly.

Women in Insurance
Men and women are coming more and
more into active competition in all
branches of modern industry. Within a
comparatively short time many women
seeking new channels in which to provide for individual maintenance are becoming life insurance agents. One case
known to the writer was that of a woman who had achieved considerable success as a piano saleswoman, hut who
turned to life insurance hb offering larger opportunities. She was very successful in underwriting. Many other woman
who have made similar ventures have
found that it is easier for them to
reach women than it is for their masculine competitors. With women as with
men,  however,   equipment  counts  for

SECOND IN LUMBER
B. C. Takes Second Place Through
Quebec Falling Off
An increase of 22 per cent in the
lumber cut in British Columbia, accompanied by a decrease of 7.7 per cent in
the cut of Quebec has caused Quebec to
drop from second place among the provinces in point of lumber production,
which it has held for many years.
B. C. now occupies second place, b
position which, because of the rapid
exploitation of the fir and cedar forests,
it will probably maintain.

Mr. Newton's "Letter of Explanation"
Our hysterical contemporary seems to be quite up in the air at the suggestion
that it had apologized to Mr. Prank Mobley (or libelling him, and in its usual
muddle headed way, advances evidence upon evidence to show that its editor's
"letter of explanation" will not hold water.
lis amended attitude is that in charging Mr. Mobley with "wholesaling liquor
to non-license holders" it did not mean intoxicating liquor. Granted: then wher
is the offence. There is no point in the accusation unless the inference is that
the liquor referred to was "intoxicating liquor." It would be no more an offence
than wholesaling Kmpin ; tn nun-license holders.
That by the term "liquor" is meant "Every spirituous and every fermented
and every malt liquor and every wine, and every combination of liquors or drinks
or preparations or mixture! capable of human consumption which is intoxicating,"
is proved by the interpretation clause of the Act which our contemporary so
ineptly quotes.
Nothing can be gained by such efforts to cuttlefish the question. The fact
is that the Empire charged Mr. Mobley with what both legal interpretation and
popular usage understood as a breach of the Liquor Laws. It has been very
glad to sneak out of the responsibility for its words by explaining that by the
word "liquor" it meant temperance liquor. Very well. That is the measure
of its bombast.
There is an excuse for a layman if he neglects to make his meaning clear
on paper. There is none for an editor. An editor who requires to write a lengthy
"letter of explanation" to make the public understand a simple statement and
who finishes up by making it mean the exact opposite of what everybody else
thought it meant, is clearly until for his job. If in addition he sees fit to haggle
as to the degree of regret expressed in his "letter of explanation," the incident
becomes illuminative.
Most of us have bean brought up to consider it an honorable and manly
thing to give nn ample a|Milogy for any act of injustice inadvertently done. In
crediting the editor of the Empire with an apology we would appear to have
given him an honor he is not entitled to.

The cold weather has practically stopped the
supply of water on the mountain. Since the loth
inst. water has been supplied t» consumer, by
pumping, this supply li at present sufllcient for
all necessary purposes, hut on account of numerous tops beinir left «i.le open, the pump cannot
keep up the necessary piessure to supply the
hinlier points in the city.
The chairman of the Water Work* Committee
hopes the consumers will assist the Water Works
Department by curtailing the waste of water nnd
avoid the necessity for cutting oir ihe supply at

An Amazing Story from Real Life
A story which harrowed the hearts of many newspaper readers last April
has been revived and confirmed by an inquiry in the House of Commons. The
story al first learned unbelievable. It stated that two Indian children were burned
to death in a prairie lire near Kinistino on April 24lh. Their father had his hands
and feet burned oil, and their mother was so fatally burned that she afterwards
died. Sulfering great agony she managed to ride two miles to a halfbreed's house
for assistance, v,hn in turn rode to the government telegraph station to telegraph
for medical assistance. The halfbreed had no money, and the telegraph operator
was reported to have refused to send the message assigning the extraordinary
reason that he could not accept it unless it was prepaid.
An investigation into the affair substantiates the amazing and heart rending
story, with the added information that the father has since died of his injuries,
and I hat no inquest has been held on any of their deaths.
Fidelity to a trust is a virtue, but any person with the virtue so highly dc-
Veloped as has that telegraph operator should no longer be kept in the government
service. He is wasting his talent. He should be in the employ of some Eastern
loan-shark, where his gifts would he appreciated lo the full.
Hon. Mr. Oliver in announcing the result of the investigation to the House-
says "The department has instructed Indian Agent Macarthur to report the
operator in his superior officer, or if that could not be done to advise the depart
menl oi his name anil the station of which he is in charge in order that he might
be reported."
Is it a misprint for "deported'.'"

Prince Rupert Industrial Association
Has Secured Hall on Third Avenue
—Hospital Conditions Protested
Against    Sec'y-Treas. Elected.
A well attended meeting of the Prince
Rupert Industrial Association was held
in the Presbyterian Church Hall last
night. On the programme for the
evening the wages question was billed
for discussion, but it was decided that
a general rally of the workmen of Prince
Rupert would be held on Sunday at
7 p.m. in the Association's new hall
situated on Third avenue at Eighth
street. In arranging to hold the special
meeting there on Sunday night it was
decided to extend an invitation to all
workers, and all unions of workers
In Prince Rupert to be present and
join in the discussion of the wages
question.
Conditions at the hospital were
■evenly criticized hy some members
of the Association, and it was agreed
to prepare a petition and protest for
presentation to the city council.
A committee of workers will attend
the inquest on the victim of the Seal
Cove blasting accident tonight, and
the circumstances regarding yesterday
fatal accident will be enquired into by
the Industrial Association.
The idea that the wage-earners should
be represented by one of themselves
on the Hospital Board was heartily
approved.
Comrade Morse was by acclamation
elected secretary-treasurer of the Association, with Louis Vuckavitch to assist.
The committee in charge of the framing
of the constitution was honorably discharged.
Financial matters dealt with resulted
in the voting of $12 for payment for
the use of the Presbyterian church for
three months' meetings, and $2G for
printing. The finances of the Association
are voted healthy. At the Special
meeting on Sunday a big gathering
of workers and members ol workers'
unions is expected.

Since opening his new meat market
on Third Avenue, in the Mclntyre
Block, Mr. Frizzell hai made it a point
to have his meat arrive on certain
boats and to have only the best meat
cbtainable. Thus far he has been successful. Not only are his heavy meats
of tho best, but the poultry he carries
cannot be equaled. They are all Ontario raised fowl and in fine shape.
They have not been lying in cold storage for three or six months. If you
have not yet tried Frizzell's meat do so
now and you will be pleased with yourself. 16-17

Berlin, Jan. IX. Public opinion has
been somewhat diverted from perplexing speculations aboui the growth of
social democracy in the fatherland by
questions affecting the army, its strength
its administration and its service conditions in general.
The complaint is made that the army
is being starved in fe.ver n' the navy.
Able critics like Captain Otto Stegem-
ann, have severely criticized the attitude of the government, an
accused the war ollice of Incapacity.
Another compluint is that the men
are not paid well enough.
Controversy never sleeps in Berlin,
und the army question came more prominently than ever before the public
mind as a result of debate on the new
law fixing the peace strength of Germany's army during the coming live I
years. The increase proposed, will in j
due course bring the peace strength
of the army from 590,551 to 601,2001
non-commissioned officers and men.
Eighteen more batteries are to be added
to the field artillery, nine more bnt-
tnlions to the foot artillery and five
new battalions <o communication troops.
These and other reforms account for the
greater part of the new expenditure
proposed $20,000,000 in immediate outlay nnd $5,450,000 permunent and
annual expend mire.
ONCE A PASTOR
NOW UNDERTAKER
l.OS   ANGELES     DIVINE    FRETS
FOR FREEDOM AND RESIGNS
Does Not Want to Be Bound to a
Denominational Affiliation -Civic
Righteousness and Economy Before Theology.
Los Angeles, Jan. li). - The congregation of Memorial Baptist church
has not recovered from its surprise
over the announcement yesterday of its
pastor, Rev. C. C. l'ierce. that he intended to retire from the ministry to
become nn undertaker. Rev. Pierce has
been paslor of the church twelve years.
Chafing at "denominationalism and
d even I '""'-''"K for freedom," as he expressed
it, Rev. Pierce yesterday informed his
congregation that he would retire on
the last Sunday in February.
"I do not want to be bound to a denominational affiliation, and I want to
be able to preach whenever, where and
what I please," he told his flock. "I
don't care for theology, but everything
for civic righteousness and economy.
There are too many denominations in
the churches. Another thing, the constant financial strain for outside needs
makes a pastor's life hard."

Making Perfect Garments
The final operation of examining garments for any imperfection in tailoring is a most important one, and, in the 20th Century
Brand tailor shops, is done by a staff of eight competent and experienced examiners who are given plenty of time to do the work thoroughly. Their examination is a most critical one and the garment
must measure up in every particular to the 20th Century Brand
standard or back to the tailor shop it goes. When once the garment
has been passed by the final examiners it is boxed and made ready
for shipment. It is also ready to fit and ready to give entire satisfaction.
