The Strike is Over Now
The strike is over. It ended yesterday afternoon at ten minutes to four, with
the first shot that was fired by a striker upon the defenceless men in the First avenue
cut. Now the strikers haven't three contractors to deal with, nor an apathetic council. They have to deal with the awakened indignation of the white citizens of Prince
Rupert.   And this is a British town.
This is a British town, and any man in it has a right to go on strike if he is
dissatisfied with his wages. That is his light, and British law will preserve for
him that righi, no matter what his race, or the amount of his wages. But the same
law which preserves for him that right, insists that he must not trample on the
rights of others. Above all he mast not trample on those institutionsjef law and
order which have protected him, and given him equal rights with British-born
subjects.
By their outrage yesterday, the strikers have put themselves outside the
pale of sympathy. They outlawed their cause in thc public estimation. There
was a strike on in Prince Rupert yesterday.   There is no strike today.
There is one good thing which will come out of the riot. It will do more than
thc promises and arguments of every politician and theorist in^British Columbia
to guarantee for us a white man's town. Cradled in the midst of tyranny, many
of the foreign laborers who come to our shores seem not to understand and appreciate the meaning of liberty. To them it means license. They make a great
mistake if they imagine the quiet policy of non-interference is a token of weakness,
or an evidence that they can carry things with a free hand. The answer to that
was the spontaneous rallying ���without request���of the entire British population
of Prince Rupert to the side of law and order, on the first outbreak of violence.
In appealing to violence the strikers made a great mistake. They appealed
to an arbitrament which puts them in a hopeless minority. They have ended'the
strike. By their action they made it necessary to vindicate the law. Chief Vickers
and his men backed up by the citizens have showed themselves'capable of handling
thc situation.
Henceforth any man can go to work on the streets of PrinceJRupert J without
feai of molestation. Law and order ha�� been asserted, and will be rigidlyjasserted.
Thc strike is over now.

(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, April 7.���An innocent-
looking tree stump near the Municipal
Hall al Point Grey was being burned
in the afternoon by some workmen
engaged in clearing the land aliout the
hall.     Suddenly   a   terrific   explosion
occurred. Men were flung down by
the concussion within a raduis of several
blocks. Windows of every house and
store in thc neighborhood were shattered.
The whole staff of clerks in the Municipal
Hall was toppled head over heels amids.
the chaos of their desks and papers.
By a sheer miracle on one was hurt,
not even one of the workmen. Totally
unsuspecting danger in the fire they
had lit, the men were standing around
it when the crash came, but after the
smoke cleared they gathered themselves
up deafened but not injured. For
smashed glass there will be a bill of $700
at least. It is thought that the tree
stump contained dynamite left there by
workmen who had been on the ground
some time before.

revolver shots figured. Several of lhe

are declaring the sirike ended. In support of ,the assertion is the fact that
about a hundred strikers made a huiried

London, April 7.���Shipowners are
I axed to the utmost to provide accommodation for emigrants bound for
Canada. Advices from Antwerp report
that thousands of intending passengers
from the continent are held up theie
waiting for steamers to take tnem to
the Dominion. Every steamship lin?
is busy now, and will be busy for the
summer. While the tide of emigration
formerly ran in the direction of the
United Stater it now flows to Canada,
and there is even a probability of
Atlantic lines altering their ports to
meet the Canadian traffic. Among the
European emigrants are numbets of
wealthy people who will be of value
to the Dominion both personally and
potentially.

STRIKERS AND POLICE
FIGHT PITCHED BATTLE

had said they would in the morning.
But returning by Sixth street so as to
lie invisible to the police and contractors thev made a detour, and advanced
by way of the G. T. I1, reserve to the
highest part of the cut. Though
warned by a rush of citizens from
Second avenue, Chief of Police Vickers,
did not wish to assume any attitude of
violence whatever, and only a couple Of
constables met the vanguard of the
strikers. It was when the stone throw-
throwing began, and the constables
were swept down the slope that Chief
Vickers was compelled to resort
sterner methods..

of the striker.--.   Their cries  were  un- I
intelligible, but they gave ground suddenly under  the  persuasive  eloquence
of the six-shooters.    They were driven
right back to their ball on  Third  Ave. I
where about twenty arrest* were made
Police Held Their Own
Oncn the police gained the advantage
they kept it on the high ground.    Foot j
by foot the mob,   still   spitting  stones !
and curses, was forced back.     One of !
the strikers lay on the  ground  a  huddled mass,   motionless,   but  breathing
heavily.    A few non-combatants filter-
ed buck from the now   scattered  mob,
and gathered about him.    He was  the
man who bad tired at Sergt. I'liillipsmi.
Some one in the lighting  line   had  put
him out of business with B prompt  revolver shot through the body.    He was
dragged   away   half    unconscious,    a
ghastly sample.
Cowardly Behaviour of Stiikers
Long before thia the little bund of
workmen in the cut below had beaten a
hurried retreat under a si.over of murderous rocks. The conduct of the strikers ia starting to hurl such missiles
upon defenceless men taken at an absolute disadvantage in a stone wall pen ;
as it were, deep below them deserve* j
censure of the severest kind. _____

citizens are proud of bis conduct.
Bill Lynch's Warning Heeded
The strikers were rushing Hill Lynch.
"Come another step further and 1 will
lire," said Mr. Lynch. No attention
was paid to Ihe warning and one man
at least keeled over with a bullet in bis
make-up.
Citizens as Special Constables!
So  aroused  were  the right   thinking
I citizens over the riot that most of them
volunteered   to   do   duty   as   Special

, ( hief Vickers wished them to act.
Chief Vickers Didn't Forget His Wife
After   the   battle   waa   over   Chief
i Vickers hurried down to the wharf to
, meet his wife who came In from Van*
couver on the steamer Princess May
with as much enthusiasm as a youthful
lover.    "An awful tin.,   to arrive, isn't
it?*" be said with a smile as he hurried
i to the wharf.
