ti I upper and lower Canada.
"Thai very year," said Mr. Patmore,
belt was born the man who was t��
ine these two disturbed elements,
' hi   patriot   and   statesman
Wilfrid Laurier."
���Dealing wiih Sir Wilfrid's early train-
! Mr, Patmore mentioned the amusing
Mini hy the Premier himself of his
wldays.   when   he   used   to   "light
lih ilif Scotch  Imys and make love

"H* Well did Mr. Patmore bring out
Instinctive   love   of   freedom   and

Wilfrid,    "His  appeal,"  Baid  the

(Special to tl.e Optimist)
Vancouver, March 16. That there
are diamonds in British Columbia is
'he startling announcement made in
the annual report of the geological
survey of ( anada, just published by the
Federal authorities.
The announcen ont is not expected
to make a rush for "the diamond fields
of British Columbia" for the survey
siaics that the stones are nil of very
small size, none being bigger than
pin heads. The discovery is said to be
more valuable as a scientific fact, than
for any possible commercial importance
that might accrue.
The location of the deposits is given
ar Olivine Mountain near the Tullamer
River. The discovery was made by-
Mr. Charles Cassells of the Dominion
Survey department.
This is the lirst feet riled discovery of
diamonds in Canada. The rock in which
they were found is a peridlite of a
variety known as danite, consisting of
olivine and chromitt 11 ocimens,
CENSUUED THE COUNCIL
Longshoremen    Express    Sympathy
With   Men  on  Strike
At a meeting of the Longshoremen's
Union on Tuesday  a  resolution  was
passed censuring tin city council for
a waste of puhlic nu ne> in hiring special
constables, and for having solicited the
aid ef naval and miliary forces.
Sue!; a ndud they say is calculated
to incite tie strikers and discredit
union labor. The Longshoremen also
cNpr.ssed their full sympathy wi.h thc
men on strike.
iSpecial to the Optimist)
Nelson, March 16. The Kootenay
Jam Company has sold its plant lo ihe
Doukobors and will move to the coast.
This waa done because the ranchers
are devoting more of their attention
to apples than to the small fruits. The
company hopes to obtain larger supplies
of small fruit at the ecust.

The council sat all yesterday afternoon, and again today in conference with
Mr. D'Arcy Tate discussing the proposed agreement. Neither Mr. Manson

any statement as to the progress made

rumors have binn current aa to the
proposals under way.
Mr. D'Arcy Tate, it is understood,
wished the period of exemption from
ordinary assessment to be fixed at
fifteen y.nrs, hut in this the council
stood solidly opposed to any settlement

COAL NOTICE
Three men went to work this morning
on Mclnnis & Kelly's First avenue
contract for wanes at the 37 1-2 cent
rale. The strikers soon heard of ii,
and something like a circus resulted.
The cut is admirably adapted for the
convenient view of a large gathering of
spectators, and the strikers saw lo it
that ihe large gathering was there.
A Natural Theatre
On the high portion of ihe reserve
overlooking the cut. about a hundred
men assembled. Hundreds more swarmed around ihe oilier sides of the work,
and away over on Fiisi avenue near the
Dominion Hotel from where a (rood view
of the cut could be obtained another
crowd of some hundreds of strikers
gathered. In fact, stalls, pit, circle,
balcony, and gallery were all lill.d. It
was a full house.
Crowd Jeered Them
On the stage in full view ef the large
audience stood Mr. Mclnnis and his
three workmen. Like Caesar before
he overcame the Nervii, Mr. Mclnnis
exhorted his men to go to it antl heed
not the mar of the mighty populace.
Obediently the men began to work.
But  they found it  hard to work on
under the fusilade of derision volleying
from   half   a   thousand  throals   above,
behind, and all around them.
One Man Quit
One  fellow  hesitated,  and   furtively
eyed   his  coat.     Wildly  the  audience!
eneouraKcd him.    He wavered, then in |
spite of the exhortations of the contractor, he Bung down his shovel, put|
on his coat and marched oil the job.
Instantly   from   the   whole   crowd   of
strikers a mighty cheer went up.
The other two men were affected by
the action of their comrade, and came
to a standstill. One of them sat down
on a car and begin to fill his pipe.
Declined to Work
"Sit quiet now, and have your photo
taken " cried a Wig in the crowd. "Sny
you're sick and go home," yelled anot her.
you're sick and go home," yelled another.   "Come up here and yell for me.1

I'll pay you ten dollars an hour, here's
the money," shouted a third man
wildly waving a roll of bills.
Mr. Mclnnis stood by the man telling
them to get down to it and pay no
attention to the yells, but both men
were rather chary of starting again.
Noise, they admitted would do them
no harm but they expressed doubts
aboul lhe duration of the noise. From
jeers to threats, from threats to blows
are short steps they thought.
Police Were Sent For
Ry this time in response to messages
sent by Mr. Mclnnis Sergeant I'hilipson
wilh   three   constables   arrived.     The
sergeant  was not  inclined to interfere]
too  vigorously  with  thc  strikers.    So
far no violence has been used, and be
contented himself wit h w'timing t he crowd I
against violence.   Ky and by the st rikers I
dispersed its there was no attempt on
the part  of Mclnnis' two men to take
up their shovels again.
Mr. Mclnnis is disappointed thai men
cannot be get to work in spite of the
comments of the strikers, and looks
lo the police to keep the contract
clear. As long as the strikers do not
touch the workmen or their tools,
however, it is doubtful if the police can
do more than they are doing.
Only Three Stand Out
There ure only three contractors
standing out against the 46 cent rale,
as L. Vuckavitch has withdrawn from
his contract, and Dan Boscovitch has
taken up his share of the psrtnership
in it to carry on thc work at lhe '15
cent rate which Vuckavitch refused in
pay except to a small number of employees. Dan Boscovitch this morning
���tited that he was to start up wilh
from fifteen to twenty-five men tomorrow.
By tl.e Prince Rupert this morning
a number of laborers arrived anti were
met by members of the P. R. I. A.
with the usual mild demonstration.
The newcomers win- escorted up Centre
street, and given full particulars nf the
situation in regard to labor in town
Their presence is not likely to affect
the position one way or the other.

$100,000,000
From the most accurate figures obtainable, over One Hundred Million
Dollars was made by real estate owners in growing cities and towns of
Western Canada last year. This vast
wealth was exclusive of improvements
and roproientod actual increase in land
values alone.
Original records gathered by the
Winnipeg Free Press prove that in
eight western Canadian Cities thc value of land alone ���not counting improvements���increased 502 per cent, for the
last five years an annuil increase of
112 per cent, for each city  during  the
last five years.    These figures   indicate    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
that investments in live, growing cities  f 1 f*i ���      ���
in  Western  Canada are  as  safe  and  __.fLl\Q V^OmmiSSlOner
sure as an investment can be, and that
100 per cent, profit each year is almost
B certainty.
THIS YEAR
THEY WILL UNOOIHITEIILY   MAKE  $100,-
000,000   MORE

A friend, for who but a friend would
do it, told me yesterday that somebody
in town called me a faker. Well,there
is one thing worse than be called a
faker and that is to be one.
1 realize the im|Kissibility of telling
personally everyone of what 1 came
iii-re to do, or what I am doing. I take
therefore, this means of telling you if
you do not know yet.
1 came here to engage in the real estate business. That is, I buy and sell
real estate in Prince Rupert, 1 lease
business property, I sell leases on business property, I undertake to rent
houses, I buy and sell outside property,
I sell lots in a number of good towns on
the Grand Trunk Pacific; incidentally I
make money and my clients are milking
money.
Besides all these good deeds I am
boosting Prince Rupert. I am telling
millions of people in Canada and the
United States about Prince Rupert
Opportunities. I am using advertising
spare in some forty American newspapers and some twenty-live in Canada.
And 1 am paying for it myself, too. I
know that lots of people nre interested
in Prince Rupert from the inquiries I
get by every mail. They don't come
Straggling in, they pile in by hundreds.
Siime of these inquirers want tu buy
land, some want lots, others want to go
in business. If you have something,
or know of something, that they want
better tell mr about it. My business
is Retting people together', one with
the opportunity and the other looking
for it. I'll be glad to tell you how to
do it

The Fireless Cooker
The question of air pollution and
the extent to which our domestic fires
contribute thereto is occupying considerable attention just now, nnd most
housewives will welcome tlie day when
cheap gas and electricity will enable
them to make cleanly substitutes for
coal lires. The fireless cooker is another hygienic and labor-saving device
which is being widely adopted.
The principle of fireless cooking is
simplicity itself. The food to be cooked
is placed on the range or the gas stove
in a cooking vessel and brought to the
boiling point; the vessel is then immediately placed in an air tight receptacle,
surrounded with a close packing of insulating material, and the food is left
to cook itself. The process is necessarily slow, but thorough; food cooked
in this way, whether meat, fish fruit, or
vegetables, is rendered more digestible,
more appetizing, and far more nutritious, as all its elements are preserved
in their full integrity. On every ground
the promotion of thc system of fireless
cooking is to be encouraged; apart
from the superior wholesomencss of
food, it effects an enormous economy in
kitchen labor and in the consumption
of gas or fuel; an article that would
take un hour to cook on the gas stove
need be boiled for only a quarter of
that time before being placed in the
fireless cooker. The latter costs nothing
in maintenance, and demands no attention from the cook or housewife,
who is free to devote herself to other
pursuits while the tireless is doing its
gradual work.
The continued use of the darkened
room to present thc pictures is obnoxious."
A NEW RECIPE
Mock Angel Food
One cupful of sugar, one and one-half
tablespoonfuls of shortening, one-half
cupful of milk, one heaping cupful
of (lour, two tablespoonfuls of baking powder. Stir all together, then
put the whites of two eggs into a bowl
and beat until stiff. Then gently
fold the whites into the batter; do not
stir them in. Add a teaspoonful of
vanilla. This is an original recipe, and
if correctly made it will be hard to
distinguish it from the real angel food
cake. But be careful not to stir the
whites of tht eggs into the cake, but
fold them in carefully.

Against High Heel.
Chicago, March 13.���High heel shoes
today are blamed for tho illness and
misery of a large number of working
girls by Dr. Caroline Hedgcr, a specialist
who has started a campaign here to
fully warn women of their danger.
In an address before 300 working
girls she declared that those who wear
high heels are laying up for themselves
a heritage of misery and destroying their
chances of ever becoming mothers.
She asserted that steps should be
taken to prevent girls who walk much
from wearing other than a "sensible
broad, low heel."
Protecting Children'. Moral.
Special  investigators  and   agents  of
the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to   Children   huve   just   completed   a
"survey" of all the moving picture show
! houses  and  similar  amusement   places
I in New York Ciiy.   As a result of their
I finding the society  will  ask  that  the
licenses of forty-live of these places be
I withdrawn and will recommend a swecp-
| ing reconstruction of the city ordinances
governing all picture shows.
According to a preliminary statement
! published here today, thc society will
I ask  that  the   present  system  of   pre-
j smiting moving pictures in a darkened
place  he changed  and  a  glass  screen
used in a well lighted hall.    This is a
question for the board of aldermen to
regulate,  and  action  by that  body is
expected shortly.
"We do not question the claim that
thc moving picture playhcusc may be
an educational institution," says Albert
Et, Hoeckley, one of the society's managers, "but we are more interested in
ihe respectability of the attaches employed in certain of these places. We
have before us nearly a hundred instances in which employees of the playhouses resorted to questionable methods in their treatment of young girls.
HOUSEHOLD HINTS
A back rest for an invalid, which
will be found comfortable for one confined to bed, is made of a wide board,
well padded, and slipped into a cretonne
pillow case.
An asbestos mat under the bread
pan will help the bread to rise on a
cold night, as it will prevent the bottom being chilled. The ordinary stove
mat may be used.
Never put the chafing-dish or any o
its parts in water, but clean the pans
by partly filling them with water and
scrubbing, and the outer parts by
rubbing with chamois.
A safe paint cleaner is as follows:
Two quarts of hot water, two table-
sponnfuls of turpentine, and one pint
of skimmed milk, with soap enough to
make a weak suds.
HOW WARSHIPS
WERE CHOSEN
CANADA'S VESSELS WERE SELECTED FOR NAVAL REASONS
They Are Designed for Scouting,
Protection of Trade and for Destruction of Commerce De.troyer..
Are the Be.t for the Purpo.e.
Discussing the vessels which am to
be built for the Canadian navy, the
British News of Canada says:
The vessels of the Bristol class arc
protected cruisers of medium size high
s|ieed and powerful armament. They
are designed for scouting, for the protection of trading vessels, and for the
destruction of such vessels as may
be let loose by an enemy to prey on
British commerce.
The selection of this type for the
Canadian fltot was made by the Admiralty after the most careful delivera-
tion, and for reasons that are already
becoming more clearly obvious. Naval
experts are all agreed that Great Britain needs a very strong fleet, even
if there is no danger at all of invasion. The real danger is that an enemy's
swift but powerful cruisers may be
employed in destroying helpless merchant
ships, and thus crippling Britain's finances, to say nothing of endangering her
food supply. The specific motive for
the British cruisers is to use them for
the protection of British trading Bhips,
and this is why the Admiralty prefers
Bristols to Dreadnoughts.

MINING NEWS
FROM OMINECA
WILL START WORK ON THE PLACERS AGAIN
Huderle-Otterson Co. of Seattle, Will
Work One and Half Milea of Hydraulic Ground on Manson Creek.
Other Work Started.
Hazelton,  March* 1B.--After a long
period of comparative inactivity, it  is
I now certain that thi   Omineca placers,
j which   in  years  gone  by   produced  a
large   amount   of   i;old   annually,   and
! first   drew   attention   to   the   mineral
' resources of this district, will soon resume a position among the large pro-
, ducing camps.
A number of companies and syndicates composed of coast capilalbits
I have been recently formed 10 acquire
,und work hydraulic ground in the
Omineca, and the representatives of at
least three of these concerns are on
their way to Hazelton to stun work.
Tin first outfit to begin work will
be the Huderle-Otterson Co., of Seattle.
A  party consisting of the manager,
George \V. Otterson, M. I. M. E., a
cook, and live miners, for Manson creek,
when- the company has acquired one
and a half miles of hydraulic graound
which is expected to yield big profits.
The party, augmented by Indian miners
who will lie picked up en route, will at
once begin preliminary work, and Mr.
Otterson expects to have everything in
readiness for the opening of the mining
season about June 1, so that the entire
season will be productive.
The company has purchased the
hydraulic plant formerly used by the
St. Anthony Exploration company and
E. J. Newberry, to which will be added
an hydraulic elevator, which is being
taken in by toboggan. Supplies for the
taken in by toboggan.
John Huderlt is expected to arrive
iu Haziluin ubout May 30, to take pan
in ihe management of the company,
which will expend about $15,000 on the
season's work.
Mr. Otterson, who is au experienced
hydraulic miner, and prominent as a
mining engineer, operated in the Omineca from 1K1I9 to 1901, and is familiar
wilh the distriet and its possibilities.
He slates that the ground acquired by
the company, as long as it could be
worked by Individual miners', paid $lti
a day to the shovel.
Among other properties which will
be worked this season is the Silvtr
Creek dredging proposition, preliminary
work on which is well under way, and the
Tom Creak property formerly operated
by Gondii Brothers and James May,
which has been acquired by G. V.
Knowhon, of Vancouver, who will
probably take a dredge In by the Talla
lake route.
Thc Boulder Creek syndicate has
prospected its ground, six miles Ixlou
Huderle & Otterson, and will take in a
plant this year. Pending its installation
a ditch two and a half miles long will
bu run.
These outfits und others will spend
considerable money during the Coming
season.

Mayor Manson's Opportunity
Fortune is prodigal "f opportunities to Mayer Manson. The hard feeling
aroused by his absence from I lie city for the past two months while the strike was
brewing, will stand a fair chance of being forgotton. if during his regime lhe citizens make a satisfactory settlement of tin- (irand Trunk Pacific assessment dispute.
An announcement will shortly be made of the actual terms under consideration.
Until such lime il is not fair to tlie council for citizens to discuss the question on
the basis of street rumors, however well authenticated they may profess to be.
Any proposition which may be submitted to the people, will have the virtual
endorsement of at least a majority of the council. Its terms must be clearly defined,
and opportunities given lo lhe publie for Ihe closest analysis and widest discussion.
Otherwise it might prove to bo a boomerang. A bad settlement would keep the
issue open for years to come.
The assessment question is one which is purely economic, and local. Outside
Influences must be rigidly barred out of lhe discussion. Political preferences and
persona] prejudices should have no part in it. For this occasion all should strive
to rival that happy condition of the eld days of Home "When none were for the
party, but all were for the Mate."
To a right understanding of the real nature of any proposed settlement, the
best efforts of every thinking man in the city ought to bo invited, irrespectiv, of
all Other differences. Blind appeals or denunciations of the "This will knock the
city" or "this will boost the city" type, should not be allowed. The public needs
adequate explanations, ample facts, and clear and dispassionate reasoning.
The Optimist suggests that after the proposals are formally announced that
Mayor Manson should set the lead in this matter by issuinggin explanatory statement to the dtisens, setting forth in dispassionate terms a fair statement of the
matter at issue, together with an explanatory statement of the company's proposals and the reasonable economic effects they may be expected to produce.
Particularly should ihe public be given every opportunity to understand the
precise effect that the proposals would have on the assessment of the city: how
this in turn would affect the borrowing power of the city; to what extent if any
they will necessitate the raising of the general assessment of the city in order to
raise sufficient funds to carry on the work of the municipality; the varying effect
on the real estate market of a bond issue based on a high or a low assessment; a
calculation of the estimated borrowings of the city possible if the proposed agreement comes into effect; and a financial budget showing what public works it would
Ih- possible to tinance, and what it would not be possible to tinance. ut>on the possible borrowings of the city under the readjustment of assessment. which the
proposals will cause.
These arc all aspects of the settli ment which il is necessary that the ratepayers
should understand before passing judgment for or against it. They are aspects
which we all would do well to discuss ill a spirit of mutual helpfulness. The future
economic welfare of the city; the possibilities for usefulness both for the present
and for many futun councils arc hound up in the settlement.

METHODISTS HOLD SOCIAL
Pleaaant Evening Spent by Member,
nnd   Friend,
In the Methodist Church last night
a pleasant Iii ile social was held. A number of members of the congregation
and their friends assembled and greatly
enjoyed games, conversation, Impromptu
spsech making, and tKs refreshments
provided by the ladies of the church.
One of the games WM a clever geographical   guessing   contest,   in   which
clues to numerous islands of the world
were pinned here and there upon the
walls. The contestants went forth
upon a tour of exploration discovering
the islands. Afterwards Miss Hester
Kergin revealed the real list of islands
intended. Wonderful skill in the placing
of islands was displayed by the audience.
Rev. Charles Sing was present, and
took enthusiastic pan in the amusement.
Within the Methodist church at their
services and socials a very cordial
welcome i** always extended to visitors
io the city, and an atmosphere of pleasant
sociability is ever present at the church
gatherings.

& Seattle railroad have offered a reward
of $1,000 for information that will lead

ot Engineer Anthony Lowe, who was

the hobo class, came up on the train
and insisted on riding on the cowcatcher.
Lowe ordered him off the engine, but
the man refused to leave. When Lowe
insisted that tht man must get off the
cowcatcher, the fellow pulled out a
gun and shot the engineer dead.

Ottawa, March 15.���Hon. George
P. Graham, in delivering the annual
railway budget in the House of Commons this afternoon, said the government did not propose to give any
more aid to railways in the way of
land grants. He had no (ear, he said,
of the future of Canadian railways
because Canada would always lie able
to hold her own in competition for the
carrying trade.
Mr. Graham gavt the total mileage
of Canadian railways at 124,731, an increase of (i:(7 miles over last year, including the Grand Trunk Pacific, 45M)
miles under construct inn.
Mr.   Graham   announced   that   the
government has decided  to build the
Hudson  Hay  Railway itself and  Inter
I will  present   to  the   House a  proposal
for Its operation.   Arrangements will
kllO   be   made   for   elevators,   wharves
I and steamships,
Tin*  minister  announced  that   the
surplus on lhe Intercolonial last year
was 1688,164, Wer* freight and passenger rales :ls high as I hose on Other
railways in Canada lhe surplus would
have been much lurg'T.
Dealing with the (I. T. P., he said
thc total expenditure on the mountain section so far has lieen eighteen
and three-quarter millions and on the

Performing the Rite in Church, so Native Marriage Custom Prevailed
LAND PURCHASE NOTICE
(Special Correspondence)
Port Essington, March 16. An in-
teresting social evening and dance attended by most of the residents of I'ort
Essington was held here last night in I
celebration of the marriage of Min
Annie Kisbimoto. tho daughter of Mr. |
Kishimoto, the well known storekeeper
and contractor of this place. The
wedding is the tirst Japanese wedding
to take place in these parts and widespread interest was taken in it.
The bridegroom who is a young
Japanese, according to Japanese custom
takes the name of the bride's family,
and is now known as Mr. K. T. Kishimoto, Jr.
The wedding which took place on
Sunday according to the Japanese fashion
was originally intended to be solemnized I
in the English Church, and all arrangements had been made. Rev. T. C.
des Karros was to come .over from j
Prince Rupert to perform the ceremony.
On  Sunday,  however,   although   the
church was ready, Mr. des Banes v.OS I
unable to come owing to the high storm |
which raged, making it quite impossible!
for the clergyman to reach the port.
Rather than disappoint the guests.
many of whom had come a distance to|
witness the ceremony, il was finally
arranged to have the ceremony performed '
by the Japanese custom, where the bride
an.l groom, and guests drink fiom a
loving cup. and make and witness the
formal premises of marriage.
The ground floors of the Queen's
Hotel were hired for the occasion and
beautifully decorated. A large number
of the English residents who had intended to visit the church were disappointed at the turn of events, so with
true Japanese politeness, the friends of
the bridal pair, arranged the social
evening and dance at the Queen's
Hotel Uu*t night ar.d invited all their
English friends.
Rev. Mr. DesBarres, who arrived
at Port Essington on Monday after
the Itorm had abated, told the parties
that the wedding had been legally
performed, being in accordance with
their  national  custom  and  that   there
was no occiusion to  have any further
rites to legalise the marriage.
On Friday evening there will be
more festivities, when another dance
will be held to cleberatethe "seventeenth
of Ireland."

Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Ford are Fond of
an Adventurous Life.
Tacoma, March 15.���With no sign
of fear for the perils of the trip, J.
C. Ford, of the Narrows, accompanied
by his wife and little daughter, left
Tacoma this morning for Alaska in
a twenty-foot gasoline launch. The
party will go at least as far north as
Skagway and may continue the voyage
to Cook tnlet. A fourth occupant of
the little boa*, is a magnificent deer
bound which has accompanied Ford
on a number of other cruises.
Both Ford and his wife love the
wandering life, he says, and have
planned to lead it on the Alaska coast.
The launch, which is named "The
Dub." will take the inside passage,
tying up at night except at several
places en route where it will be necessary to run continuously. If the weather
is bad on Queen Charlotte Sound,
Ford will wait until it moderates before
venturing across the open body of water.
While a number of people in the city-

GREATNESS OF
SIR WILFRID
CONTINUED FKOM PAGE 1
magnetism of the Premier Mr. Patmore
mentioned an occasion when he himself
had heard Sir Wilfrid answer a heckler
wilh the simple assertion backed by
the words "Upon my word of honor
as a man.'* That was all thin was necessary to sway thc whole audience in Sir
Wilfrid's favor. He inspired complete
confidence in his honor.
The incident of Sir Wilfrid's going
out of his way to greet a little girl with
her bunch of wild Mowers for him brought
out Sir Wilfrid's chivalry, and in mentioning ihe National Transcontinental
Railway Mr. Patmore styled this one
of the monumental achievements cf
Sir Wilfrid's career, reminding his hearers that but for that, they would not
be in Prince Rupert that night.
"Sir Wilfrid," said Mr. Palmore, "is
a Liberal of thc English type. His
ideal for Canada as he himself has
expressed it, is to let the sturdy Scotchman remain the Scotchman, the brainy
Englishman, the Englishman, and the
warm-hearted Irishman Irish. All nationalities united us good    Canadians.''

LAST YEAR
RIAL ESTATE OWNHI IN
Western Canada
KADI
$100,000,000
From the most accurate figures obtainable, over One Hundred Million
Dollars was made by real estate owners In growing cities and towns of
Western Canada last year. This vast
wealth was exclusive of improvements
and represented actual increase in land
values alone.
Original records gathered by the
Winnipeg Free Press prove that in
eight western Canadian Cities the value of land alone- not counting improvements���increased MS per cent, for the
last five years-an annual increase of
IIS per cent, for each city during the
last five years. These figures indicate
that investments in live, growing cities
in Western Canada are as safe and
sure as an investment can be, and that
100 per cent, profit each year is almost
a certainty,
THIS YEAR
THEY WILL UNDOUBTIDLY   MAKK  $100,-
000.000   MOKE
