mil in. The cargo was stowed
in lhe usual manner, all right in
line weather, but certainly not
in 1 nil weather. No one was
mi the promenade deck. She
seemed lo be tender when she left
the wharf. 1 said to the mate:

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 Ibister, the mate, said he
found the cargo shifting ten minutes after the Iroquois started,
when a heavy beam sea struck her.
He told tlie 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 nol a word. A
few second's later the Iroquois
was foundering. Describing the
scene the mate said: "She was
going down. 1 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 thc
passengers. While we were doing
this the hull had gone down
altogether and the housedeck lifted
clear of lhe 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 I could get
in. The passengers were in it.
There were, I think, aboul ten
in the boat which swamped 300
yards from the wreck. We cleared
tlie 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
1 think one passenger were in the
boat, three passengers antl myself
on the wreckage and one passenger and the steward in the
water.
Thought Wreck Safest
"I didn't go in the boat because
1 considered I would stay on the
wreck. 1 thought I was safer
there."
"You were not actuated by
motives of duty?"
Witness: "No, sir. Just before
the boat left the captain shouted
to the steward in the water and
asked if the passengers were safe.
1 didn't hear the answer owing to
the wind. The captain said to
us: 'Stay by the house and you
will be 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 thc Admiralty Court
has been appointed to conduct the
investigation.

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 11 1-2 cents per
hour from the contractors when
they waited on the Mayor the
other day.
No idea of compromise has

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 thc committee demanded of
Mayor Manson lhe Other day was
that he enforce lhe penalty clauses
in the present contracts.
This denial comes direct from the
P. R. 1. A. and is emphatically
made.

Mayor   Manson   and   Council
Present with Members of the
Hospital  Board   Over Two
Hundred Dancers Took Part
"A most successful dance." This
was the opinion of all who circled
it light footed and light-hearted
in the merry mazes of last night's
Hospital Dance in the Mclntyre
Hall. Though the wide hall was
crowded, there was ample floor
space, and the enjoyment of the
whole assembly was more than
assured.
Thanks to the untiring exertions
of the Ladies' Auxiliary of the
Hospital Board the arrangements
for the function were carried
through to perfection. Everyone
takes an interest in the welfare
of the Hospital. Everyone who
dances tries not to miss a dance
organised by the Ladies' Auxiliary.
Every dance hitherto arranged by
the Ladies' Auxiliary has been a
success, and last night's is the
latest.
Gracing the ballroom were Mayor Manson, and nearly all the
members of the city council. Alderman Kirkpatrick, who is also
of course a valued member of the
Hospital Board, did his share
of work ticket taking at the door
willingly and genial as ever.
Mr. D. G. Stewart as President
of the Hospital Board was prominent in his efforts to make the
dance a success. The musii- was
by the popular dray's orchestra.
Among those present were: Mrs.
W. Manson, handsome black net

white chiffon over pink; Mrs. J.

WINNIPEG AND EDMONTON
DO NOT WANT NEGROES
Boards of Trade Send Protests to Ottawa Asking Them
to Take Steps to Prevent any More Black Immigration into Canada���Say  it  is
Best for the Negroes
(Special to the Optimist)
Winnipeg, April 10.���Winnipeg
and Edmonton Boards of Trade
ire determined to deter the immigration ol negroes into the
Dominion if possible. They have
both passed strong resolutions against the policy of admitting this
class of immigrant, and these were
last night forwarded to the Dominion Government authorities at
Ottawa.
Conditions Unsuitable
In the resolutions are set forth
the principal arguments against
negro labor, and lhe negroes as a
class as set tiers. It is emphatically
stated lhal conditions in the Central and Northwest of Canada
especially, are nol such as are
adapted to negro labor, and that
the negrix's themselves will be
unable   to   adapt    thenisleves   to
the climatic and other conditions
as do the immigrants irom 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
strongest possible kind runs high
against the negroes in the city,
and the idea that this class of
immigrant is to be allowed to take
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
tin ( anadiar.s born and naturalised

Police to the Rescue
It was learned that the lady,
Mrs. Findlayson, had come from
Vancouver to join her husband
here, a stationary engineer. She
did not know where he was. He
was to meet her, she said.
Then some one rang up the
police and Chief Vickcrs lost no
time in hustling Constables Mansell and McArthur to go anil
find that family a good place to
stay at. The two officers went
to Little's place. They told the
mother the object of their
and she was grateful for
help.
Now both these young officers
are single men. Hut you would
never have thought so had you seen
how ihey acted. Mansell took
the baby from the mother in hi-
strong arms and the tot didn't
register any objection. She toned
softly, pushed her soft liny feet
into his khaki coal and Mansell
unloaded all kind- of "tlidunis"
then, just like an experienced parent.
McArthur took the little fellow
and his sister in low, one in each
hand. Mother, officers and kiddies started up the slreet. It
was a fine sight, that procession,
and the little travellers were in
high glee. Finally the officers
found them room in the Talbot
House and Mrs. Findlayson and
her family were told not to worry.
Father Had Left Town
Then the officers started out
to find the father and husband.
Ile had left thc ciiy they learned
bill not before making provision
for his little family. He had gone BB
as engineer to a tannery up tht
Skeena, a good position, anil had ]
written to his wife before he
went telling her what lo do when
she arrived here. She left before
the letter reached her. Mr. Findlayson as ii further precaution had
left word with a friend that his
wife was coming and this friend
was to nil lur a furnished cottage
was ready for her on Fraser street
and also to give her an envelope
with Mime money in it. She went
to the collage, h wa- comfortable and homelike. Anothei
letter from her husband told her
he wotlld send for her as soon as
possible.

u a- the first witness examined, He
said:
"I watched the Iroquois from
I he wharf on Monday morning.
Tbe weather was very bad, and I
anticipated danger, It was unusually bail for that ship to go
mil in. The cargo was stowed
in the usual manner, all right in
fine weather, but certainly not
in bad weather. No one was
on the promenade deck. She
seemed to be tentler when she left
the wharf. 1 said to the mate:
'the evil day will come some day,
Johnny.1 He said: 'Yes 1 dread
going from Pulton Harbor to Port
Washington today.'
"What did you mean by evil-
day?" asketl Captain Eddie.

when she sailed and 1 would not
have taken lhe vessel out under
the conditions, When we threw
her ropes off she rolled over considerably, bm after a time she
recovered."
"As a seaman to what do you
attribute the accident?"
Witness: "Top-heavy."
The Captain's Conduct
John Ibister, the mate, said he
found the cargo shifting ten minutes after the Iroquois started,
when a heavy beam sea struck her.
He told lhe captain. Captain
Sears asked how much had shifted
but issued no orders then. A
second wave struck her. The
rest of the cargo slid lo leeward,
and the vessel listed still more.
Again the mate told lhe captain,
but Sears said not a word. A
few second's later the Iroquois
was foundering. Describing the
scene the male said: "She was
going down. I saw the captain
coming from the wheelhoiise. 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 housedeck 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 I could get
in. The passengers were in it.
There were, 1 think, about ten
in the boat which swamped 300
yards from the wreck. We cleared
tlie 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 and myself
on the wreckage and one pasr
senger and the steward in the
water.
Thought Wreck Safest
"I didn't go in the boat because
I considered I would slay on the
wreck. 1 thought I was safer
there."
"You were not actuated by
motives of duty.''"
Witness: "No. sir. Just before
the boat left thc captain shouted
to the steward in the water and
asked if the passengers were safe.
1 didn't hear the answer owing to
the wind. The captain said to
us: 'Stay by th'-' house and you
will l>e all right and drift ashore.' "
Government Enquiry
While tlie trial of Cpalain 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 lhe safety of the people
travelling these coasts. Justice
Martin of the Admiralty Court
has been appointed to conduct the
investigation.

WINNIPEG AND EDMONTON
DO NOT WANT NEGROES
Boards of Trade Send Protests to Ottawa Asking Them
to Take Steps to Prevent any More Black Immigration into Canada���Say   it  is
Best for  the Negroes
(Special io the Optimisti
Winnipeg, April 19.- Winnipeg
and Edmonton Boards ol Trade
are determined to deter tlie immigration of negroes into the
Dominion if possible. Thev have
both passed strong resolutions against the poiicv of admitting this
class of immigrant, and these were
last night forwarded to the Dominion Government authorities ,ii
Ottawa,
Conditions Unsuitable
In the resolutions are set tortli
the principal arguments against
negro labor, and the negroes as a
class as settlers, li is emphatically
stated that conditions in the Central and Northwest of Canada
especially, are not such as are
adapted to negro labor, and lhat
the negroes themselves will be
unable   to   adapt    thcinslcws   to
the climatic and othei conditions
as tlo the immigrants from Europe
and America.
Edmonton Remembers
Edmonton Board of Trade is
particularly emphatic against tl.e
importation of negroes as settlers.
The recent serious outrage committed there by newly imported
negroes who maltreated a \ tiling
while girl one nighl in a lonely
pari   of  lhe  city,  is  fresh  in   the
public mind.    Sentiment  ol  the
strongest possible kind runs high
against the negroes in the city,
and lhe idea that this class of
immigrant is to be allowed to take
possession of amy 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
i he Canadians born ami naturalised
