Sea Captain's Evidence
Captain George Johnston, who
holds master's certificate No. 8205,
was the lirst witness examined.   He
said:
"I watched the Iroquois from
the wharf on Monday morning.
The weather was very bad, and I
anticipated danger. It was unusually had for that ship to go
out iii. The cargo was stowed
in the usual manner, all right in
fine weather, Imt certainly not
in bad weather. No one was
on the promenade deck. She
seemed to lie tender when she left
the wharf. I said lo the mate:
'lhe evil day will come some day,
Johnny.' He said: 'Yes I dread
going from Fulton Harbor to Port
Washington today.'
"What  tlid you mean by evil-
day?" asked Captain Kddie.
Witness: "Capsize, that is what
I meant. I am a deep water man,

NEW FIRE ENGINE WILL
ARRIVE HERE TONIGHT
Its a Beauty According to the Account of Mr. Wm. E.
Lee Who is Here to Explain Its Workings
to Fire Chief Mclnnes
Nanaimo. There was a heavy sea
when she sailed and I would not
have taken the vessel out under
the conditions, When we threw
her ropes olT she rolled over considerably, but after a time she
recovered."
"As a seaman to what do you
attribute the accident?"
Witness: "Top-heavy."
The Captain's Conduct
John I bister, the mate, said he
found the cargo shifting ten minutes after the Iroquois started,
when a heavy beam sea struck her.
He told the captain. Captain
Sears asked how much had shifted
but issued no orders then. A
second wave struck her. The
rest of the cargo slid to leeward,
and the vessel listed still more.
Again the mate told the captain,
but Sears said not a word. A
few second's later the Iroquois
was foundering. Describing the
scene the mate said: "She was
going down. I saw the captain
coming from the wheelhouse. He
walked along to me, close to the
companionway, as if to go down
to the freight deck. The captain
went to get the crew together
to see what we could do for the
passengers. While we were doing
this the hull had gone down
altogether and the liousedeck lifted
clear of the hull and we were all
on this—the captain, myself, four
deckhands, the chief engineer and
some passengers.
Orders   at   Last
"Then the captain gave us orders
what to do, and after we cleared
one Ixiat and the captain put the
passengers in this he asked me to
go in charge of the boat. She was
washed away before 1 could get
in. The passengers were in it.
There were, I think, about ten
in the boat which swamped 300
yards from the wreck. We cleared
the other boat and the captain
gave orders to come in and try
to make shore. The captain wasn't
in the boat then; he was on the
deck. The captain, the chief
engineer and three deckhands, and
I think one passenger were in the
boat, three passengers ami myself
on the wreckage and one passenger and the steward in the
water.
Thought Wreck Safest
"I didn't go in the boat because
I considered I would stay on the
wreck. I thought I was safer
there."
"You were not actuated by
motives of duly?"
Witness: "No, sir. Just before
the boat left the captain shouted
to the stewartl in the water and
asketl if the passengers were safe.
I didn't hear the answer owing to
the wind. The captain said to
us: 'Stay by the house and you
will l>e all right and drift ashore.' "
Government Enquiry
While the trial of Cpatain Sears
is being conducted, an exhaustive
enquiry into the circumstance of
the wreck is to be instituted by
the Dominion Government with
a view to the safety of the people
travelling these coasts. Justice
Martin of the Admiralty Court
has been appointed to conduct the
investigation.
With the Kilning of the S. S.
Henrietta tonoght from Vancouver
will   come   Prince   Rupert's   new

OFFERED NO
COMPROMISE
by P. R. I. A.   Executive Deny
Idea of Compromise
45-CENT RATE ONLY
Suggestion that Committee Agreed to Compromise for 41 1-2
Cent Rate is Indignantly Refuted by the Association.
The P. R. I. A. deny that their
committee ever proposed to compromise or agreetl to any proposed
compromise for 41 1-2 cents per
hour from the contractors when
they waited on the Mayor the
other day.
No itlea of compromise has
ever been entertained by the P.
R. I. A. With them it has been
all the time, and still is, a case
of 45 cents an hour or nothing
doing.
All the committee demanded of
Mayor Manson the other day was
that he enforce the penalty clauses
in the present contracts.
This denial comes direct from the
P. R. I. A. and is emphatically
made.

WINNIPEG AND EDMONTON
DO NOT WANT NEGROES

to Take Steps to Prevent any More Black Immigration into Canada—Say  it  is
Best for the Negroes
(Special tu the Optimist;
Winnipeg, April 19.—Winnipeg
antl Edmonton Boards of 'Trade
are determined to deter the immigration ol negroes into the
Dominion if possible.   'They have
both passed sirt.ng resolutions against lhe polity of admitting this
class of immigrant, antl these were
last night forwarded to the Dominion Government authorities .it
Ottawa.
Conditions Unsuitable
In the resolutions are set forth
lhe principal arguments against
negro labor, anil the negroes as a
class as settlers. Ii is emphatically
statetl thai conditions in the Central and Northwest of Canada
especially, are not such as are
atlapted lo negro labor, and lhat
the negroes themselves will be
unable   to   adapt   themslcvcs   lo
the climatic antl other conditions
as do the immigrants from Europe
antl America.
Edmonton Remembers
Edmonton Board of 'Trade is
particularly emphatic against tl.e
importation of negroes as settlers.
Ihe recent serious outrage committed there by newly imported
negroes who maltreated a young
white girl one night in a lonely
part of the city, is fresh in the
public mind. Sentiment of the
strongcM possible kind runs high
against the negroes in the city,
and the itlea that this class of
immigrant is to be allowed to lake
possession of any district of the
Dominion is most repugnant to
the white people of all the white
races who have themselves newly
immigrated, and most of all to
the Canadians born antl naturalised

the Alaska, Pacific Coast and
Gerand I 'rank Stamsliip Com- They
panics were notified by Albert
Leet, general manager of the White
Pass ,\ Yukon railway, that effective immediately, all tariffs naming through freight and passenger
rates between Seattle, Tacoma,
Vancouver, Victoria and points
on the White Pass iV Yukon and
connecting lines via Skagway have
been withdrawn. Discrimintaion
in rates made by the steamship
companies to points on the rail-
mail is given as the cause.
It is explained that a variety of
rates on the vessels of tht Alaska.
Pacific t'o.isi and Grand Trunk
Pacific Steamship Companies made
charges against shippers to points
on the railroad unfair u, some
shippers, and the White Pass &
Yukon dedded not to be a party
to .my through rates, announdng
thai    the   local    tariff   would   lie
made today.
The Western Railroad Company
retails the long-fought ease of
the llimilioltlt Steamship Company
which asked the Interstate Commerce Commission to compel the
White I'.iss & Yukon to gi\o ii
the same rau- a> its competitors.
The charge of discrimination of
tickets waa heard by the Interstate Commerce Commission in
Seattle during October, 1000. The
comission refused to take anion
on the ground that it hatl no
jurisdiction over the common carriers of Alaska.
Unable to take an appeal Irom
thi- ruling the Humboldt Steamship Company sought a mandamus in the Supreme Court of the
Districi of Columbia, lo compel
the commission to assume jurisdiction. The argument was heard
in these proceedings about ten
'l.i>- ago and thc officials of the
lluniliohlt Steamship Company are
waiting for the dedsion, <initials
of thc steamship company said
yesterday that if thc ruling was
unfavorable they would carry the
i .i-e tn the Supreme Court of the
United States. They arc determined to light to ihe bitter end
.tti>! asserted yesterday that they
would Beck the protection of a
law fruiti Congress, extending the
jurisdiction of thc Interstate Commerce Commission over the territory ol Alaska.
