P.O. BOX 1545
PRINCE RUPERT. B.C.
"A Crusade for the Child"
Those who feel most deeply the importance of child-saving insist that
there are additional measures that
should be undertaken without loss of
time. It is urged for instance, as a
mutter of immediate necessity, that
state relief be provided for impoverished widowed mothers with families
of young children.
Miss Addams, in the North American
Review has sufficiently indicated the
horrors of the present situation and
pointed out the inadequacy of day
nurseries in solving so serious a problem. Generally speaking, a mother
cannot protect her children in even
the ciudest sense and at the same time
earn the money for their support. If
she is allowed to remain in her dreadful
dilemma, the children of such a family
are therefore practically wasted, lost
to the stale.
A measure that would cover this
and other difficulties and for which
much might be rationally be urged is
state endowment of motherhood.
In the meantime it is proposed that
a bureau be formed under the department of the interior and that it investigate and report upon all matters
pertaining to the welfare of children,
particularly upon the following points;
infant mortality, the birthrate,
degeneracy, orphanage, juvenile delinquency and juvenile courts, desertion
and illegitimacy, dangerous occupations,
accidents and diseases of children of the
working classes, employment, legislation affecting children, and so forth.
' strains the muscles and soon tires the
| worker.
, A reliable furniture polish is made
from equal parts of olive oil, vinegar,
and alcohol. This shouH'. be rubbed in
with one wollen cloth and polished
with another.
Always keep alum in the house. It
checks bleeding wounds, and for bleeding of the mouth or tongue a waah in
cold water in which alum has been
dissolved is very effective.
  s
V hen carpets are not taken up they
can be greatly freshened by washing
with water in which a tablespoonful of
ammonia has been added lo a pail of
water. This should be done after a
thorough sweeping.
IN  WOMAN'S WORLD
A new financial institution has been
added to the list of State banks in Illinois which is unique in the banking
history of that State by reason of Ihe
fact that all the incorporators are
women.
Baroness Alelta Korfl, an American
girl and a Uiyn Mawr graduate, who is
the wife of an official in Finland, is
reported as saying that one of the first
things the women of Norway did with
their ballots was to get the Government lo siart schools for the domestic
training of girls.
The New York teachers are happy at
bust because the committee appointed
by Mayor Gaynor has decided, among
other things, that pay should be for
position, which means that a teacher
of Latin in a boys' high school, for instance, will be paid a certain sal:..-y,
wbather man or woman. The minimum
salary will be $720, whereas it was fro-
merly $G00.
There are 10,0(10 lazy husbands sup-
porled by their wives in New York.
Next thing these wives will bc wanting
to vote.
OUR  DAILY  RECIPE
A Salt Pork Delicacy
This is really a delicious way to servo
salt pork. Slice fat pork and soak the
slices an hour in sweet milk; drain and
fry until the pork begins to turn brown,
then dip in a batter made of one egg
which is beaten and stirred into two
tablespoonfuls of Hour; then fry on
both sides.
HOUSEHOLD SUGGESTIONS
A woman who does machine sewing

Weather  Pleaaea  Colonel   Davia
One man at least in I'rince Rupert
was delighted with the rrin yestorday.
City Engineer Davis says this downpour
will nicely fill the reservoir on the
mountain by loosening the springs all
around the watershed. So the water
scarcity will be ended no doubt until
the summertime. Colonel Davis is
also of the opinion that this weather
will do a good deal towards winding
up the strike. Little outside work
could be done anyway under present
conditions.

NANAIMO FISHERS
IN BAD LUCK
RUN   OF   HERRING   WAS   POOR
FOR THEM THIS YEAR
Batch ia Only 7,000 Tons aa Against
28,000Tons Laat Year. Time Some
of Them Moved to Prince Rupert
Harbor.
Nanaimo, March 8. So poor have
the cutches of those enguged in the
herring fishing industry been this seu-
son that many fishers will end the
year in debt while others burely made
expense!*. No ycur in the history of
the herring industry hus been so disss' runs us the scuson '��� bat closei toduy.
Approximately 7000 tons of herring
were caught anil cured hen this season against 28,000 tons last year und
the season was almost six weeks behind thut of last ycur. Although appearing in the big schools in the Gulf of
Georgia near Departure Hay more
thun u month ugo, the fish did not en-,
tor the harbor until two weeks Inter,'
und then only smull catches were re-
ported,
Fishermen attribute their bud luck
to the greut depth ut which the herring schooled. When the fish finally
entered   Departure   Hay   nnd    Pender
Harbor from the Quit of Georgia, and
swum beneath the nets,   one flsha**-
maii. who wus enguged in lhe herring
industry for more thun ten yeurs, attributes the poor run und the depth
ut which the fish were found to the in-
crcu-mig number of gasoline launches
continuously cruising on Departure Buy
and Pendtr Harbor. These noisy little
boats, it is said, frighten the fish into;
deeper water beyond the reach of the1
seines. Others attribute the small!
CBtch to the decrease in the number Of I
whalta. Whales feed upon herring'
and during the fishing season, it is
said, drive large schools of the little!
Bah   Into   the   shallow   hnrbors.   where
the big leviathans will nol venture.

"Little Eva" is Skeer't
Nothing yiore noble i-* recorded in history than the heroic manner in whicli
Alderman Newitm last night lied from the praise we sought to bestow upon him.
Thai heroic soul who could face the shocks of adverse fortune wilh unflinching'
mien, broke and lied when showered with kindness.
"We loath to accept last night's llattery." "A diabolical and hypocritical
attempt to blind the people." These were the terms of outraged innocence with
which Alderman Newton received our meed of praise.
There were some unkind folk who laughed and said that the alderman used
the occasion as a boast to his readers just as some ladies are said to boast of their
conquests by inference.
Hut in this they do the alderman a great injustice. His accents have the
ring i; outraged virtue. Like some innocent maiden in a melodrama pursued by
the b Id bad villain, so Little Eva of the council is firmly convinced that we are
pursuing her with kindness from the wickedest of motives.
Naughty! natlghtyl little Eva. Cannot we praise your virtues without having
our motives quest toned.
B-it in face of all her indignant pt.utings we are still of the opinion that little
Eva showed herself to be the only man on the council last Monday night.
Will Alderman Clayton Explain ?
During ihe alleged debate on the license by-law on Monday night, Aldermnn
Clayton twitted Alderman Newton for demanding a plebiscite, by reminding
Al erman Newton that he refused to submit the wage question to a plebiscite.
"Thc 45 cent rate was an issue in lhe campaign. We all promised it, and the
people elected us knowing we had promised it. That is why I held there was no
need to go to the people," replied Aldermun Newton.
"Well ao waa the extra hour to the hotel keepers an iasue in the campaign.   We all promised that, too," retorted Aldermun Clayton.
The public never heard of the promise to the hotel men during the campaign.
Apparently, neither did Alderman Newton. There area number of the supporters
of Alderman Clayton who never knew that the extra hour to the hotel keepers
was an issue iu the campaign.
Will Alderman Clayton explain more fully what he meant by the reference?���
or is this one mere matter thai it was decided to conceal.
What Everv Woman is Learning
Every woman is coming to know thut udvertising hus u reul vulue to her. In
olden days, under olden conditions, store-advertising was u very negligible thing.
It consisted of either the dull, formal announcements of the conservative stores,
or of the hysterical, misleading anil "stampeding" style of advertisements resorted
to by llie irresponsible stores. In neither case wus advertising importunt to the
housewife, nor of the nature of "service" to her in planning her purchases.
Within lhe three decadal just past advertising hus evolved from these olden
Conditions into its present status nf store-service. No worth-while store would
now think of omitting il, or of limiting it tm) much in the scope of its usefulness.
It would be as wine to try to tlo business in quarters wholly inadequate, or with
no delivery system, nor elerks. For the advertising is ns much a part of store
service ���.   .my ni her phase of store-keeping.
Women have learned, and are learning, lhat only stores lhal are adequately
advertised ure able to give reul values are able lo compete in vulue-giving with
other stores that udvertise. The store thut does not advertise is nol consitlered
ut ull except as a mere neighborhood shop, lo which we aa- driven by necessity
sometimes   always to our loss,
WoiDM are learning that the advertised store, selling great quantities of
good '��� is able in m-II them at a much smuller pcr-salc profit than the unadvirtised
store, which it.it i make its prolits from a small number of sales. This truth makes
storo-ttdvertlslng of real Importance to every woman   to every buyer.
A Clever Cartoon
One <>f the humors of lhe present strike is u very clever eurtuon druwn by
one nl the Workingmen who has considerable ability ns nn nrtist. it represents
a fierce looking bull wilh head lowered and heels in the air, charging into u mob
of quiet looking working men who are currying u retl bunner, on which is inscribed
the w.irds "Don't be a SCAB    be a Man.   P. It. I. A."
The bull, which wears an eyeglass, and bears a striking facial resemblance to
one of the aldermen, is Saying, "I Won't sin d for that."

THE   PATH   TO   YESTERDAY
There's B path that leads to Yesterday
you know it;
A rambling path of Uloasoms and perfume,
You remember how the wold grapes overcrow it.
To the house upon the hilltop deep in
bloom.
There's a path that leads to Yesterday
through .lowers,
Where the wood thrush is a voire of
magic song;
Where the cricket snaps his magic whip
for hours,
And the barefoot boy goes whistling
all day long.
There's a path thai leads to Yesterday
that's haunted
With tin* shadows of old memories of
blisH,
And the ghost of loves thai roamed there
once, who counted
Kvery moment by a heartbeat or a kiss.
Oh, the path that leud.s to Yesterday
It's catling
Don't  you   hear  it?     How  it   culls
through many things
Through  its  roses,  like  the  memories
now fulling,
And the dreamlike nest ward fluttering
of wings.
On the path thut leads to Yesterday
we're started;
Hear it calling with its many whip-
poorwills,
Like the voices of old happiness departed.
Through the darkness, where the moon
rests on the hills.

VANCOUVER DEMANDS THAT
ITS FIVE MEMBERS RESIGN
Indignation of the Government's Treatment Arouses
Hostility���Mayor Taylor Offers to Resign and
Run Against Mr. Bowser if Latter
Will Accept the Challenge
Vancouver, Murch 7. "II Mr. Bowser will red'**] from the Route 1 will
resign from the Mayoralty, if Lhe
people want me to, and run against
him."
This was the challenge which Mayor
Taylor of Vuncouver hurled against
thc Attorney General, who is a member
for Vancouver, at a large protest meeting
in the Vancouver Opera House last
night.
Not content with this deli to the
Attorney General, the meet inn went
on to pass the following resolution:
Angry al  Refusal
"Whereas, in the interests if Vancouver and Af the district of Scu.h Vancouver it is imperative that the said
District of South Vancouver should
forthwith be annexed to and become a
part of Vancouver; and
Whereas, a large maji rity of tl.e residents uml electors of said city and
District are desirous nf having such
legislation enacted and said District so
annexed and have expressed themselves
by plebiscites, by resolutions passed at
public meetings and by ran y representative liodies and have urgently requested
the government of British Columbia
to enact such necessary legislation and
the government has, wh hout logical
reason, refused to grant such requests,
thereby injuring said ciiy and District,
retarding the growth ami development
of the same, preventing the Installatk n
of proper sewerage and subjecting lhe
residents to the danger if epidemic and
Should All Resign
"Whereas, the live members elected to
represent the City of Vancouver in the
Legislature are supporting the government in its refusal of the requests nf
the electors and disregard the best
interests of the city and in thut respect
utterly tailed in their duty as representatives of Vancouver, and no
longer have the support of a majority of
the electors of said cily;  Therefore lie it
"Resolved, That in the opinion of
the citizens of Vancouver in mass
meeting now assembled,  Messrs.  \V. ,1.
Bowser. H. H. Watson, <'. E. Tisdall,
A.   H.  B.  MacGowan and   Dr.  G,  A.
McGuire, now membl rs b r Vancouver
of the Legislative Assembly, should
forthwith rcsipn and are requested to do
so; und that u copy of this n solution be
sent to each of said meml cr*-, und to the
Premier, Hon. Richard McBride."

KADI
$100,000,000
From the most ai-curate figures obtainable, over One Hundred Million
Dollars whs niinle by real estate owners in growing cities and towns of
Western Canada lust 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 562 per cent, for the
last five years���an annual increase of
112 per cent, for i-aeh city during the
last five years. These figures indicate
that investments in live, growing cities
in Western Ciuiadn are as safe and
sure as an investment can be. and that
100 per cent profit each year is almost
a certainty.
