New Fast Fishery Cruiser is Wanted,

Lighthouse Work.
Special to the Optimist)
Ottawa, April 7. Poaching is declared lo he regularly running riot all
along the B. C. const nowadays, and
quite possibly befoie long the Kestrel
will be supplanted by a new fast gun-
boal fit to cope wuh the wily Yankee
dcspoilers. Probably the Kestrel will
be turned over to lighthouse service,
as during a discussion of ine marine
estimates this week Mr. Barnard made
the Suggestion that instead of building
a new lighthouse lender, the Government should expand the money on B
fusi flsheiy cruiser, and use the Kestrel
to chase around the beacons and ligill-
hllUM'S.
"The Kestrel hi far loo slow  tO cope
with the American poacheis," said Mr.
Hainard. "The Yankee 1��� at* are prac-
tically unmolested. Not only is ihtre
almost unrestricted Rsnlng within the
three-mile limit, bui the poachers go
ashore, and kill deer and inner name
wholesale.
In reply to tha Minister if Marina
who said that ibe Federal Government had no call to protect the Provincial game laws. Mr. Barnard said
(hat if the o sst was better protected
ihe,,   would be far less nee,I io protect
Lhe gams for poachers with no respect
(,,r the game laws would no, be allowed
to land,    lie added lhat the miserable
administration <>i   thi  laws here was

not only amongst tha white people but
also amongst the Indian aborigines.

SOUL  SUNSHINE
Clad in scarlet clown the way
We others walk in black and grey.
Not yours, like some too early wise,
To" watch the world through dead men's
eyes,
And barter for a stale half-truth
The shining birthright of your youth;
You wear it like a flag unfurled
In challenge to the friendly world.
I Sorrow may touch you, yes, and care,
But not the slavish, dull despair
That bows men's backs to needless pain
Never to stand upright again.
II read in your smile and your brave young
pride���
Skies are blue and the world is wide,
; And ships come home wiih the morning
tide.
i So, walking onward, I behold
The dreary' houses topped with gold.
| Far from green field and dancing tree
Out of your eyes Spring laughed at me.

EVERY WOMAN KNOWS
But Every Husband  Doesn't Believe
Thia About Spring Hat*
As down the dreary street I went,
Walking alone with Discontent,
You met me, smiled, and hurried on���
And I looked up and saw the sun.
Your smile, your swift and happy tread,
The gallant carriage of your head,
The changing glint that I surprise
Of fairy green in clear brown eyes,
Proclaim the dauntless soul I know;
So vivid that it seems to go
It's hard sometimes to get hubby to
believe it but a spring hat is a necessity
With all the determination possible to
economize most strictly, the winter hat
not only looks badly but is uncomfortable
so that a change must be made when
once a higher record of the thermometer
is registered and tbe wearing of winter
clothes becomes impossible. The first
hats that are exhibited by those establishments that cater to the Southern
resort trade are always high priced���
quite too high priced fir the majority of
women. Then at the department stores
are exhibited the expensive models
also, but with the addition of a large
stock of inexpensive ones and quantities
of untrimmed shapeB.
Here is a dangerous quicksand. The
comparatively low cost of the "shape"
and also the low price of many cf the
trimmings appeal irresistably to the woman who has a taste for millinery and has
been credited by admiring friends with
great skill in making her own hats.
She invests in at least two 01 three of
these bargains with their accompanying
trimmings and docs not realize at the
moment that the sum total Bhe has paid
exceeds what the cost of an already made
and smarter hat will amount to.
It is a mistake to buy the spring hat
too early, when every penny has to be
counted. The fashions in hais change
so often that before there is a chance to
wear it another quite different sha|>e will
be far more fashionable. On the other
hand, if theie is a hat that is becoming
and smart at any reasonable prier to lie
found in advance of the season it is a
good investment, and there is nothing
more delightful than to be possessed of a
smart l.at when 'he weather suddenly
turns warm. But not to be led into
ISnseleae outlay is the wiser course lo
pursue, and the one smart black hat
bought now will solve the problem far
better than to be possessed of three or
four of different colcrs.

Quaint and Dainty Bit of Vanity for

of home fashions that I have seen for
a long while is a lingerie nightcap,
old fashioned, yet so dainty and pretty
that we cannot but admire it. It is
being sold in conjunction with one of
the new lingerie nightdresses, and matches it perfectly. It is formed of three
rows of narrow crochet insertion, and
has a full puffed back of fine nainsook,
the rows of insertion and the nainsook
being gathered together at the back,
and a large puffy bow of satin ribbon
covers the gathers, and gives it a girlish
and pretty appearance. Except for the
fact that it is white lingerie, one would
almost suspect it of being a coquettish
and saucy little auto bonnet.

The Perils of Modern Education
Once upon a time fond fathers urged their progeny when departing for college
halls to beware of eyestrain and overstudy. Mothers feared for the after effects
of damp socks or unaired sheets. The worst that might possibly happen from a
scholastic point of view was the fear that the unfortunate victim of education might
develop bumptiousness which is the token of a half fledged acquaintance with
"the meaning of things." j
Recent tokens show that a new college disease has broken out. For lack
of a better name it could be described as "hooliganitis" with a deep apology to
the original Hooligan. Toronto University has had several bad attacks of it of
late. More recently it spread to the shades of McGill University. Under its
influence a body of McGill students made an attack on the carriage of a guest,
overturned the vehicle and its occupants, and set fire to the wreckage on the university campus. It was a crime against the laws of hospitality of which a Hottentot or a Btlthman would be incapable. Under the madness of hooliganitis the
student* imagined they were upsetting some of Mr. Sifton's supeificial arguments
against reciprocity.
Some of the experts who h:ive been called in to diagnose the complaint have
confused the disease with the horseplay of student life, or the historic "town v.
gown" feuds which have marked the life of some of the elder universities. In
this ihey are hopelessly wrong. The significant symptom of hooliganitis is tha.
the vic.ims go round in packs like wolves or jackals, and fall upon unprepared
and unsuspecting persons. A year cr so ago a number of the Toronto students
walking down Yonge street, were suddenly smitten with hooliganitis. Without
���warning they ran into the middle of the road, pulled an inoffensive and surprised
conductor off a street car. and broke his back. Unfortunately the man did not
die, bui lingers on. his children practically fatherless, his wile worse than widowed.
None of the hooligans were banged or even sent to tbe penitentiary. With a fine
spirit of chivalry 'hey "squared" the matter by "chipping in," and giving their
victim some money.
The incident is revived by reading the accounts of the treatment meted out
to Mr. Edward Terry, the famous English actor in Toronto. In his inimitable
way he had been entertaining crowded audiences by his masterly delineation of
the title role in ihat most amusing of comedies "The Magistrate." On this occasion
the students bought up the whole of the cheaper seats in the galleries, and armed
with cow bells, pea shooters, darts, riiv, and a plentiful supply of ill manners and
coarse comment upset the evening's entertainment, in spite of the appeals for fair
play for the ladies of the company and the ladies of the house which Mr. Terry-
made, and in spite of .he appeal of President Falconer "for the sake of the
University" that tl.e play be allowed to go on.
To ihe Inhabitants of a frontier city like our own, it is hard to undeistand how
hooliganitis can flourish so in the seats of culture. The man who sweats to send
his son to the university ought to be warned of the dancers as well as the advantages
that attend a university course.
A Talk About The Optimist
An extra edition of the Optimist of three hundred copies last night is one
of the signs that the people of Prince Rupert have wakened up to the appreciation
of a live newspaper. Almost every week for the past four months has seen instructions to the printing department to enlarge the edition, but last night the edition
was bought up as fast as it came from the press.
There is a reason. The man who buys a paper buys news. The paper that
gives most news, drawn from reliable sources and brightly written, is the paper
for  the people.
Last Saturday in addition to its special articles portraying Prince Rupert's
' advantages as an outfitting point, the Optimist was the only paper that announced
the new schedule for the G. T. P. boats. It gave the exclusive announcement of
the impending visit of Mr. Leonard Palmer, the representative of the London
Financial News, and of the presence in town of Mr. J. N. Balcom representing^
body of Iowan capitalists.
On Monday last the Optimist gave the exclusive news of Mr. Prudhomme's
Intention to light the License Commissioners' judgment; the re-equipment of
the L/Spttal with new surgical beds; the particulars about the acceptance by Miss
Marion Johnstone of the new teachership at I'rince Rupert, and the Federal Government's action lo fight the shoe machine trust.
On Tuesday we gave the exclusive story of the gold strike on the Naas River.
On Wednesday we gave the exclusive stoiy of the resignation of Mr. J. A.
Kirkpatrick from the chairmanship of ihe local Conseivative Association, and
an exclusive interview on Prince Rupert, reciprocity and Saskatchewan's growth
wi.h Premier Scott On the same date an esteemed contemporary advertised its
inability to secure a statement from Premier Scott. On the same day we also
gave the exclusive story of the intention of Professor G. Lecarpentier, M. A., of
Paris, to contribute an article on Prince Rupert harbor to the European Review
of International Economics.
On Thursday we gave a full and exclusive account of the billiard match between
the Prince Rupai and Wand>- era' clubs- an item of n.uch interest to'.local club
men end the exclusive annou.icemor.t of th" visit and interview with Mr. A. J.
Walters of Seattle, v ;,c is here on behalf of Seattle investors.
Last nig! t we also did some things over the riot, but that is fresh in your
minds.   An extra edition of three hundred local purchasers tells a tale.
��� We do not refer to these matters in a spirit of boasting, but just toilet our
readers know that when they buy the Optimist they buy a paper that is alive
nd brim full of real news.

WHALING FLEET

ARE OUT AFTER BIG WHALES IN
NORTH PACIFIC
Five New Whalers from Norway have
Joined the Fleet iof the Northern
Pacific Fisheries Co.���Two More
Will Join This Week.
Victoria, April 7.���The whole of the
fleet of the Canadian Norlhei n Fisheries
Company have left Victoria and are
now prowling around in the vicinity
of the three stations at Sedhart, Kyu-
quot and Rose Harbor after big whales
which swarm the waters encircling thr
shore of the mainland and Vancouver
Island.
The two new whalers Blue and
Brown, which only arrived frcm Norway last week, have both been overhauled and are now en route to the
West Coast to join the fleet.
On Tuesday the Brown signed he-
crew and got away for Scharl on Wed
nesday, while the Blue signed her
crew on Thursday and sailed late that
afternoon for Kyuquot.
Reports received from the various
stations slate that the staffs are working lull time now in order to keep
pace with the work thrown upon them
by the whalers. This is especially true
of the situation off the west coast,
where six vessels are pursuing the
mammals.
When the new station now being
rapidly lushed to completion at Naden
Harbor is finished, several of the whalers
will be withdrawn irom the west coast
and sent north.
With four stations going full blast
the output of gill-bone fertilizer and
whale oil will be tremendcus and a
great advance is expected over last
year.
In addition to the regular fleet of
steam whalers, the C. N. P. F. Company have the five ncw whalers in
operation recently brought out frcm
Norway.

--T-���a --���- ���A small hnnk with [era um
a pule blue paper cover haa startled all|laiiv
Paris.   It is called "lie Is Risen Again
and is by M. Charles Morlce a wiiu.
who is well known for his admirable
work on literature and art.
M. Morlce has written honks on Paul
Verlaine, on Rodin, and "How u Visit
thc Museums," and on the religious
sense in poetry. This last hook, "He is
Risen Agiiin," is B social satire if such
tremendous force, and is sn different
from any of his former works, thai
Paris is agape at it. For the book, in
the form of a story - describes nothing
less startling than the sudden return
of Jesus Christ to Paris on December
14 lust.
It is a dillicult book to write about.
We have had, "When It Was Dark," and
Mr. Stead's "If Christ Came to Chicago," but fcr power, us for seniation,
these books are mere trilles compared
to thc bombshell which M. Charles
Morice hits dropped on the boulevards,
This is the way the hook begins;
"When the Paris newspapers appeared
on the morninu of December 11 the hack
page of each puper- on which, as a rule,
the advertisements were printed was
white. Everybody was puzzled, for the
same phenomenon was visible on every
paper. People got excited, and the
newspaper office! were beselged with
questions. No unswer wus tarencoming.
"That evening the lust page of tin-
evening papers hud no primed matter,
and there weie other blanks in other
portions of the pajiers. The most puzzled of ull were the journalists themselves.."
The printers are as puzzled us the
journalists, for the papers huve pone
into the presses as usual. Then a journalist makes a discovery. Nothing hut
real fact appears in the paper. Everything which is paid for, everything
that is untrue has disappeared. And
on the morning of the 14th. while all
Paris is wondering at the utter lack
of business on the Bourse the day lie-
fore, u little note appears on the hack
page of every Paris paper in a sea nf
white. "The Son of God needs no advertisement; he is slaying ut the Hotel
of the Three Kings on the Place de
1'Etoile"���literally   the   Place   of   tin
Star.   "He will receive idl visi	
twelve   o'clock   till   twelve  o'clock  ull
day   the   Uth  of   December  mid  to-]
morrow."
Such i9 thc beginning of this remurk-
ablc book. It sounds bluspheinous, but
is certainlv not intended to be blaspbe>
mous. The author's reputation is of itself sufficient to muke such a thought
impossible, and the personality if I
may use the word���of Him of Whom
the book is Written is trented with lb*
solute reverence

sample shipment of these units
arrived for us last week and they
are selling very fast. We ordered more by telegraph and
they should be here by the 15th
instant.
ln the meantime, we have the
Northway Style-book, and shall
be glad to show it to you and
take your order for any suit you
may select and have it made to
your measurements. Ask to see
this book [and examine the cut

on hand. Northway has the
reputation of turning out the
best garments made  in Canada.
