a sensation by declaring emphatically
that he knew his country to be utterly

cut like knife-stabs at his hearers, he
declared lhat Japan could seize Seattle,

He said that he had an assurance
that the Victoria Barclay pound ex-
t. nsion of the Canadian Northern
Railway would be started within thirty
days and that the members of the
Legislature would be invited to see
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
Interettl of the people. None however
had disapproval of the scheme.
The advent of the railway would
timulate business all ovtr 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 liveB of the mine employees.

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

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 earnatians, was given
away by Mr. Williams. Mr. C. IL
Orme was best man. As thc bride
entered the beautifully decorated drawing
room Mrs. Williams played the Wedding
March. Tht groom's gift to the bride
was a piano and a valuable lot. To
thc 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 thc 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 ut a becoming angle against the
knot. It is the fashion of the moment,
hoewver, to wear no ornament or I
flowers in the coiHurc save a costly I
jeweled band or really handsome or- j
tinmen!, such as would be most inappropriate for a girl not yet "out," and '
at the smartest dances the majority of
girls present wear no ornaments, not
even the pretty flower wreuths, in their
hair.
Ribbon run through pieces, or,
rather, strands of hair, haa 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, but who
turned to life insurance ub offering larger opportunity s. 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
thc 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.

A wedding of much interest to the
people of Prince Rupert was quietly-
solemnized yesterday afternoon by the
Rev. F. Wa kerr at the residence of
Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Williams, when
Miss Eva Ray was united in murriage
to Dr. Neil M. McNeill of this city.
The bride who was attended by little
Doris Pattullo, wore a handsome dress
of white satin antl the regulation veil
and orange blossoms and carried a
bouquet of while carnati.ins, waa given
away by Mr. Williams. Mr. C. IL
Orme was best man. As thc bride
entered the beautifully decorated drawing
room Mrs. Williams played the Wedding
March. Tht groom's gift to thc bride
was a piaro and a valuable lot. To
the flower girl he gave a goltl pin.
After the ceremony a dejeuner was
served at several tables decorated with
desire to urrunge 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
flowers in the coiflure save a costly
jeweled band or really handsome ornament, such as would In- most inappropriate for a girl not yet "out," and
at the smartest dances the majority of
girls present wear no ornaments, 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

Women in Insurance
Men and women arc 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 tn the WTiter was that of a woman who had achieved considerable success as a piano saleswoman, but who
turned to life insurance as offering larger opportunity s. She WM very successful in underwriting. Many other woman
who have made similar v. nturcs have
found that it is easier for them to
reach worm n than it is fnr their masculine competitors. With women as with
men,   however,  equipment  counts  for
lard.   Drain on brown pa|ier.

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 Queliec has caused Quebec to
drop from Becontl place among the provinces in point of lumber production,
v.hich it has held for many years.
B. C. now occupies second place, a
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. Frank Mobley for libelling him, and in its usual
muddle beaded 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
tl tl..' offence. There is no point iii the accusation unless the inference is that
the liquor referred to was "Intoxicating liquor." It would be no more an offence
than wholeaaling Bmplrt ��� to nun-license holdera.
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 effort a to cuttlefish the question. Thc 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" k 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 dearly unfit for his job. If in addition he sees fit to haggle
aa to the degree of regret expressed in his "leiter 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 apology 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.

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 thc House of Commons. The
story at lirst teemed unbelievable. It stated that two Indian children were burned
to death in a prairie lire near Kinistino on April 24th. 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 lhat he could not accept il unless it was prepaid.
An investigation into the affair substantiates the amazing and heart rending
atory, with thc added information that the father has since died of his injuries,
and t 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 ihould be in thc employ of some Eastern
loan-shark, where his gifts would be appreciated lo the full.
Hon. Mr. Oliver in announcing the result of the investigation to thc Houae-
aays "The department has instructed Indian Agent Macarthur to report the
operator to his superior officer, or if that could not he done to advise the depart
tneiil .if his name anil the station of which he is in charge in order that he might
be reported."
Is it a misprint for "deported'.'"

Haa Secured Hall on Third Avenue
���Hospital Conditiona Proteated
Against    Sec'y-Treaa. Elected.
A well attended meeting of the Prince
Rupert Industrial Association was held
in the Presbyterian Church Hall laat
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
Kupert 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 waa
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
severely 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
bc represented by one of themselves
on the Hospital Board was heartily
approved.
Comrade Morse was by acclamation
elected secretary-treasunr of the Association, with Louis Vuckavitch to assist.
The committee in charge of the framing
of thc 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 of workers'
unions is expected.

They have not been lying in cold storage for three or six months. If you

IS STARVED
SO SAYS IMPORTANT CRITIC TO
WAR OFFICE DEPARTMENT
Claimed That It la Being Neglected
in Order to Favor the Navy More
Pay Wonted for the Soldiers.
Berlin, Jan. IS. Public opinion has
been somewhat divined from perplexing speculations about the growth of
social democracy in the fatherland by
questions affecting the army, its strength
its administration and its service conditions in genera),
The complaint is made that tho army
is being starved in favor nt the navy.
Able critics like Captain Otto Btegem-
ann, have severely criticized the attitude of the government, and even
accused the war office of incapacity.
Another complaint is that the nun
are not paid well enough.
Controversy never sleeps in Berlin,
and the army question came more prominently than ever before the public
mind its a result of debate on thc new
law fixing the peace strength of Germany's army during the coming five
years. The increase proposed, will in
due course bring the peace strength
of the army from 590,551 to 601,200
non-commissioned officers and men.
Eighteen more batteries are to be added
to the field artillery, nine more battalions to the foot artillery and five
new battalions to communication troops.
These and other reforms account for the
greater part of the new expenditure
proposed $20,000,000 in immediate outlay and $5,450,000 permanent and

NOW UNDERTAKER
l.OS    ANGELES     DIVINE   FRETS
FOR FREEDOM AND RESIGNS
Doea Not Want to Be Bound to a
Denominational Affiliation -Civic
Righteousness and Economy Before Theology.
Los    Angeles,   Jan.    19.    The   congregation of Memorial Baptist church
not   recovered   from   its   surprise
has
over the announcement yesterday of its
pastor, Rev. C. C. Pierce, that he intended to retire from the ministry to
become an undertaker.   Rev. Pierce has
been pastor of the church twelve years.
Chafing   at     "denominationalism   and
I longing for freedom," as he expressed
lit, 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
j for civic  righteousness   and economy.
!There are too many denominations in
| the churches.   Another thing, the con-
| slant financial strain for outside   needs
makes a pastor's life hard."

there was made the occasion of a special
waltz competition. The judges were:
S. A. Corley, S. Stickney, and Will
Lessip.g. Three couples were selected
for the semi-final decision. They were
Mrs. Embleton and Mr. Brown, Miss
Alexander and Mr. Mills, Miss Cliff

judicious changing of partners Mrs.
Embleton and Mr. Mills were awarded

Making Perfect Garments
The final operation of examining garments for any imperfection in tailoring is a most important one, and, in thc 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 ia boxed and made ready
for shipment. It is also ready to fit and ready to give entire satisfaction.
