Two Barrels of Gunpowder Were Smuggled into the Building and
Exploded at Dead of Night---Labor Troubles May be at
Bottom---Police are Investigating the Outrage
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, April 20.���What is
believed to be a deliberate attempt
in destroy a large building here

building in course of construction

Seymour streets was wrecked

gunpowder, li is believed that
the powder was BlTlUggled into the
building for the purpose, and that
the outrage has some connection
with thc labor disputes now in

explosion wrecked the walls and
threw them out of plumb, loosened
mortar and bricks all over the
building, and was so violent that
it shattered many windows in the
neighborhood. Fortunately no
one was passing at the time, or
the wreck woultl have beer, fatal.

Montreal, April 25.���Hon

nuriing here on reciprocity was
. sketl why the government ditl
not present the question to the
Fisher replied: "As soon as
you want it you shall have the
tli.nice, but we do not propose
i'i disenfranchise a great number
"l the people, who after the census
will have voles."
Write Em Now
I )n Saturday afternoon the S. S
City of Seattle will leave here for
Seattle and  will  carry   mail   for
it is understood they have good
grounds for keeping track of more
than one person in connection
with the outrage.
Labor Trouble Begun
Because the attempt at destruction was made upon it building
just being put up, the suspicions
of the citizens are directed against
the disaffected section of labor
engaged in the building trades
in the cily. For some little time
the carpenters have been demanding $1.50 per tlay, an increase of
25 cents beyond what the contractors ;ire willing lo pay. Today
sees the commencement of a general strike of all building trade
employees, inaugurated by the
building trades unionists in the
city in sympathy wilh the carpenters.
All union men engaged in the
building trades have quit work,
and every effort will be made by
the strikers to recruit the ranks
of the unions and prevent building
work by non-union men.

Golden exhalations of the dawn

after five o'clock this morning and
chased away  the   cold   of night.
Here and there hung shimmering
rain clouds stubbornly refusing to

Police are Investigating Matter
and Several Arrests of Suspects Were Made Today. Guilty Persons are Netted.
A r.isi- of theft involving thc
sum ol slot) is being investigated
by the poliee who have already
arrested several persons against
whom Btrong suspicions exist. The
money belonged to a lady who
arrived here with her husband
only a day or two ago, and took
;i house on Eighth avenue, It is
their intention to make their home
in Prince kuperi.
Evidently thc knowledge of the
fact that they had come here
prepared to invest, and had withdrawn sums of money from the
bank for immediate purchases became known to certain of the
dishonest fraternity. The house
was evidently watched, for the
theft took place on Sunday morning when husband and wife were
Up to the present, while thc
police have certain information
which hum not be divulged, the
actually guilty person has yet to

Sshool of the New York Infirmary,
conversationalist, lecturer, and tl c
head of the Imperial Pciyang
Women's Medical School and Hospital. Dr. Kin directs within that
hospital ii training school for nur-

fourl thering this work especially that

'Sanitation is greatly needed in
China's congested cities, and ii is
hoped that the work ol these nurses
will be largely educational, The
problem of infant mortality is far
more serious in China than wilh
us, the death-rate being about
fifty per cent which is not by any
means all accounted for by
Chinese custom ol drowning
babies. I>.\ Kin investigated
progress in civic hygiene, household sanitation, and the conservation of child life. She believes
that it will be the district nurse
who will reform and make siniluiv
ilu- homes of overcrowded China.

A Little Different Isn't It, from
the West you Know
In the Far West "Hamlet" was
one evening given by a strolling
company, and this is the criticism
that appeared next day in the
local paper, written by the local
dramatic editor:
"There is too much chinning in
this piece. The author i> behind
the times, and seems to forget thai
what we wain nowadays is hair-
raising situations and detectives.
"In the hands of a skillful
playwright a detective would have
lieen put on the track of Hamlet's
uncle, antl the old man woultl
have been hunted down in a manner that would have lifted Its
audience Out of their cowhides.
"The moral of the piece is not
bad.       The  scene  where   llanilel
sasses his mother is a very bad
example to the rising generation.
"Our advice to the author i.i
more action, mor'.- love-making
and plenty of specialties. Thc
crazy girl scene should be cm
��� mt altogether, and a rattling good
song and dance substituted."

Two Barrels of Gunpowder Were Smuggled into the Building and
Exploded at Dead of Night���Labor Troubles May be at
Bottom---Police are Investigating the Outrage
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, April 20.���What is
believed to be a deliberate attempt
tn destroy ii large building here
took place last night when a new
building i�� course of construction
at thc corner of Smythe and
Seymour streets was wrecked
|.\ ilu- explosion of two casks of
gunpowder. It is believed that
ilu- powder was smuggled into the
building i<
thc murage has sonic connection
with ilu- lalmr disputes now in
progress in lhe city.
Powder Carefully Placed
l-A.iininaiion  of   the  wreckage
cveals  tlu1 fact   that   two  casks
0 powder h.id evidently been
carefully placed underneath the
floor joists. How the charge was
ignited is not appearent, but the
explosion wrecked the walls and
threw them out of plumb, loosened
mortar and bricks all over the
building, and was so violent that
it shattered many windows in the
neighborhood. Fortunately no
one was passing at the time, or
ir the purpose, and that {the wreck would have been fatal.
Police   after   Perpetrators
The residents of the neighborhood were thrown into a state
of wild alarm by the concussion
and the police arc actively engaged  in  searching  out  the per-

news   today   of   the   fate  of   the

potrators of the dasratdly act.
Not a word is said by lhe officers
in charge of the investigation, but
it is understood they have good
grounds for keeping track of more
than one person in connection
wilh lhe outrage.
Labor Trouble Begun
Because the attempt at destruction was made upon a building
just being put up, the suspicions
of lhe citizens are directed against
the disaffected section of labor
engaged in the building trades
in tbe city. I'or some little lime
the carpenters have been demanding S4.5Q per day, an increase of
25 cents beyond what the contractors are willing to pay. Today
sees the commencement of a general strike of all building trade
employees, inaugurated by thc
building trades unionists in the
city in sympathy with the car-
pen I ers.
All union men engaged in Unbuilding trades have quit work,
and every effort will be made by
the sirikers to recruit the ranks
of tbt- unions and prevent building
work by non-union men.

Fifteen persons perished when the

agreement  il  was considered lire-

of street railways for Prince Rupert.
Good Thin^ for City
Undoubtedly there exists a general   feeling among   the  members
of the Board of Trade that it will
be a good thing for the city at
its present stage to have some large
company in spending money to
develop and handle power propositions. But none of the members
fe Is like giving away city franchises for any long term of years.
Expressed by Ca. R. Naden the
idea is thai it may be about
twenty years before the city can
afford to municipalise any enterprise, and in any case it will be
more profitable for I'rince Rupert
to take over such enterprises as
going concerns.

Golden exhalations of the dawn
streamed along the tops of the
hills to the easl of lhe city soon
after live o'clock this morning and
chased away the cold  of night
Here antl there hung shimmering
rain clouds Stubbornly refusing to
be dismissed by lhe advancing sun.
The stream of gohl broadened,
the cloud of night was hurrying
out of sight, the rain clouds, after
shedding a few tears, joined die
Vapoury mists hanging like gauze
in the fir trees across thc harbor.
Along every street pasted little
groups of men for the most part
shod with shoe packs and carrying
on their backs big packs These
groups converged on Center street
near thc G. T. I'. Inn and headed
for Foley, Welch & Stewart's
wharf. Occasionally a Woman
joined the procession of men.
At the Wharf
Up at the wharf Steam hissed
impatiently Irom a couple of steamboats, the "Operator" and thc
"Conveyor" winches worked hard
taking aboard freight and baggage.
The men and women CTOSSOd

of men, fat and lean, men oltl and
young, men from the hill1- of
Montenegro, men from the Steppes
���of Russia, nun from lhe verdant
fields of  England, men from  lhe
(leathered moors of Scotland, men
from Kilkenny and Killarncy, men
from old Ontario and historic
yuebec, men from the north, the
south, the east, lhe west. And
lhe women too. whal siories might
circle round them.
First of the Season
Soon lhe deckhands of lhe Op-
cr.iior shouted to Captain Myers
"All clear!" The telegraph instruments of the boat chattered
from the bridge to the engine room
then lhe big paddle whirl at the
stem began to revolve antl churn
Up the foam. A few minutes later
lhe Operator was clear of lhc
wharf. She gave three loud whistles as a parting salute and headed
lor lhc Skeena River audila/.elion.
Captain Shannon of the Conveyor was soon on the heels of lhe
Operator. The paddle wheels left
pathl of furrowed water behind
A few men and one lady watched

Two Men You Know Them
Just as the Operator was streaming out of sight two men could
be seen standing afl. One was a
Iii tie slight man, with a rather
sad face, employer of 50,001) men,
builder of railroads that link the
commerce of thc north with the
south, of the east wilh the west,
known to some as John W. Stew-
at t, to others as "The Little White
Chief" m others as plain Jack
Stewart.   He is a man with more
grit and determination than can
bc found in a thousand ordinary
men.   A man who came out from
Scotland over twenty yens ago
without a sou and today his firm
pays out around a million dollars
a month in wages alone.
The Other man was heavy ot
build, wore a grey fedora hat, you
all know him as Duncan Ross.
The smoke from the boats drifted
in link- blotches across ihe harbor.
The sun hatl climbed over the snow
capped hills and patches of azuit
sky could be seen. A new day had
dawned. The rush into the interior had begun.

Wednesday, April 26
On Tuesday, March 2, the shopping district of Chicago had the
deserted appearance characteristic of a holiday. Business streets,
customarily thronged with buyers, were empty. Listless clerks idled
away the hours behind unfrequented counters. The street cars, that
ordinarily are crowded with women purchasers between the hours
of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., rattled on their way with a bare handful ol
passengers. Perturbed and astonished merchants, of lung years experience declared it the most disastrous day lor businesss that the
city had experienced in years���if not in its history.
And ii all came about because the daily newspapers of the Middle
Western metropolis failed to carry advertisements on the day ir
question. Kor twenty-four hours Chicago was without its daily business news. Many merchants spend liberally for street car, billboard
and circular publicity, but their campaigns were productive ol no
results. The business men of the United States again were confronted
with the undeniable fact that newspaper advertising is the very life-
blood of all modern trafficking and lhal all other agencies are insufficient
Thc demonstration in no sense was planned by the newspapers
of Chicago to create an impression upon the business public. It arose
through a disagreement between (lie printers and the management (.1
the Hearst papers. The Examiner and The American. The International Typographical Union promptly discpuntenanced the action of the
Chicago printers in striking, but in Uu- meantime all other publishers
of the city, both in tlie morning and afternoon field, had been roused
to such unfair indignation by the unfair attitude of the compositors j
that they elected to stand by the Hearst papers to the limit.
As a consequence, all Chicago daily publications on the nioniin^
and evening of March 2 appeared in a size of four pages���without I
advertisements. Il probably was the firsl instance iu modern times!
where a city of such importance has been devoid absolutely of newspaper business news. The result has been sketched, bin words are
inadequate properly to express the amazingly destructive effects of
the move.
, .Merchants who had been inclined to regard with cynicism con
elusions advanced by astute students of publicity gasped with amaze
mint as they ga/cd down empty aisles, that had been filled by interested shoppers with such regularity that they had come to reganl the!
crowds as an institution. Those who essayed to promote activity
by billboards, street car posters and circulars finally and conclusively
ascertained that ihe biggest feature in connection with such campaigns
is the bill. The strongest statement made by expert exponents of
newspaper advertising were sustained so absolutely that even the most
skeptical were convinced.
beyond any question of argument, the fact was demonstrated
that in the field of advertising, no less than in that of chronicling
the daily news of thc world, the newspaper is supreme.

Reciprocity in thc dictionary sense means equal rights or benefits
to In- mutually yielded or enjoyed.
Reciprocity in the political sense means a "free" breakfast table
for the people of Canada antl the United States.
There are some people who don't know what reciprocity is. They
think it is a method wherein' the national wealth is to he handed
over to Bomeone. In the United States these say it is thc United
States markcl that is to he handed over to Canada In Canada they
say it is the "national heritage" that is to he handed over to the
I'nited States.
Sir Charles Tupper is one who does nol understand what reciprocity is. lie told an audience ai Vancouver iwo weeks ago, that
it was a device whereby the United States could rob the forests of
British Columbia of their timber.

"Robbing our forests" is Sir Charles's way of saying: "Huy our
lumber." It is a form of poetic license which anti-reciprocity advocates
find convenient where-with to cloak the shivering nakedness of their
arguments, It is to \n- hoped thai under reciprocity the people of the
United States will rob US of a large quantity ol fish every year, giving
u> in ext hange for lhc stohn property a sum of mono) to he arranged.
If they roll us enough we will grow quite wealthy That was why
Sir Charles warned his hearers to beware ol the "lure of gold."
"Lure of gold" j*. a terrible menace lo loyalty, Some of the opponents of reciprocity fear thai if wc become rid' we wil, grow lo
hate our country. Therefore they would have us taxed 26 per cent
on our breakfasts, to keep us loyal. In the next revised version of
the Scriptures they will move an amendment to a well-known texi
to make it read "Whom the law lovcth, it chasteiiclli."
T.ilking of foreign gold and loyalty il is calculated that nearly
1300,000,000 of Amercan capital  is invested  in  Canada.    Much of
I is in institutions controlled by some of the spokesmen of anti- imp.
proclty.   Va t none o  them ever thought of the danger to their loyalty
on this i,i i ount.
I here i, no need or Sir Charles and his friends to worry about
our loyalty. I the worst comes to the worst, wc could always pass

Just Why the Princess May Is

Yes; Some Good Priding Costs Too Much, Too
with other good things
or higl" class
Saving in Time, Labor, Heat,
Steam and Horse Power   Oil
Fuel   Means   Faster  Trips
Across Atlantic in Four Days.
Since the Princess May was
lilted with oil burning furnaces
a good tleal of interest has been
aroused in Prinee Rupert regarding her performance, and all tlu
indications have been in favor ol
the oil fuel system. There cm
be no doubt that she has made
belter time than ever, ami that
her   trips  have   been  also   made
much more economically than they
were with coal fuel.
The Reason Why
Why does die fuel make such
a difference you may ask. The
reasons for thc greater efficiency
of oil fuel over coal are Stated
by a Scottish engineering paper,
"lhe Steamship" as follows: Steady steam pressure; au absence of
"dirty" fires, and no necessity for
cleaning fires (which last because
of thc opening of lire doors and
cooling off of furnaces, is estimated
to cause a loss of 12 1-2 per cent
of steam on a seven-day voyage,
with a corresponding lossol speed);
reduction of bunker space to live-
eights of that required for coal,
and a great reduction of the force
of stokers.
Oil Always Makes Good
The uniformly good results obtained whenever oil fuel has been
given a properly-arranged test on
an ocean-going steamship, have
made il certain thai someday, and
not so far in the future oil will
take the place of eoal as the fuel
of thc great trails-.Atlantic steamships which may then make the
crossing in a neat four days. One
remarkable fact in favor of oil
fuel is that, in spite of the unusual
number of advantages to be derived from thc change, there is
practically no serious disadvantage.
Furthermore, thc larger thc ship,
die more marketl are the conveniences and economics attending the
change from oil, says the Scientific
Saving in Space
It is pointed out that portions
of the ship which are now useless
as coal bunkers, because of iheir
narrowness or inaccessible position,
are always available for the storage of oil fuel. The double bottom may bc used, antl lhe trim
of the ship may be preserved by
admitting sea water to thcempticd
oil tanks. The objectionable list
to lhe port or starboard, due to
using more coal from one side ol
the ship than from the other, is
avoided; a steam pump serving to
transfer oil fuel from side to tide
at a moment's call.
"Coal Age" Steamers
Now, in view of ihe many above
advantages, it may be asked whs
the   leading   Atlantic  steamship
lines have not adopted oil fuel.
The delay is due to the fact that
these ships were built in the "coal
age," and thai, coupled with the
prejudice, due largely to ignorance,
of ship owners against fuel oil,
there has been financial objection
to the cost of making the necessary
changes in the bunkers. As a
matter of fact, the advantages of
oil firing, if applied to the fast
trans-Atlantic liners would be so
great and so quickly realized, that
we may look for its early introduction.

We were standing in lhe doorway,
My little wife and I;
The golden snn upon her hair
Fell down so silently;
A small white hand upon my arm���
What coultl I ask for mure
Than the kindly glance of loving
As she kissed ine al lhe door?
I know she loves wilh all her heart
The one who stands beside,
And the years have lieen so joyous
Since lirst I called her liride;
We've had so much of happiness
Since we met in years In-fore,
But lhe happiest of all was when
She kissed me at the door.
Who cares for wealth of land or
For fame or matchless power?
II does nol j(ive the happiness
Of just one little hour
Willi one who loves me as her life���
She says she loves nu- more���
And I thought she did this morning
When she kissed tne al the door.
Al limes it seems that till the world,
With all its wealth of gold,
Is very small antl poor indeed,
Compared wilh what I hold:
Antl when  the clouds hand grim
and dark,
1 only think the more
Of one who waits the coming step
To kiss me at the door.
If she lives till age shall scalier
Its frost upon her head,
I know she'll low tne just the same
As the morning we were wed;
But if the angels call her,
And she goes lo heaven before,
I shall know her when I meet her���
For she'll ki-**s ine al the door.

| the belt  to a little lacc-triinnicil

the  two  skirts will    always    lie

Fair Lady Gave the McLean's a
Good   Time
The fair hostess al a dinner
at her London club certainly gave
a surprise to ger lluests, who were
all of the clan Maclean. There
was a big muster of the clan, and
the badge figured in ihe decora-

was served in the form of a Teddy
bear, a tartan ribbon around Ins
throat, and a spoon in his paw-
bearing the ice.
A special corps of girls is being
orgai izetl in Paris to carry radium
to and fro between ihe laboratories
where it is manufactured and stored, and the hospitals and consulting rooms of the physicians who
use it.
They receive good wages, 140
anil $50 a month, and the ri*-ks
attendant upon handling the mysterious mineral, aud carrying il
constantly about with them, are
considerable. They have lo In-
very careful, and lake elaborate
precautions, otherwise they are
liable to be burned by the radium
emanations, and such burns develop very quickly into nasty,
spreading ulcers, which are exceedingly difficult to heal.
Each tiny speck of radium���
worth many hundreds of dollars-
is inclosed in a sealed glass tube,
from which the air has previously
been extracted, and this again is
placed in a small leaden box before
being handed to i messenger for
conveyance anywhere.
The girls wear gloves lined inside with leatl sheeting, and iheir
waist-belt, inside which is fastened
lhe thin, flat box containing the
lube of radium, is also lead-lined.
The reason for this is that it
has been found that the liny
particles which are constantly being given off by the mineral���its
emanations���will not easily penetrate lead, although they readily
pass through glass anil most other
Still, even after taking every
precaution, lhe fact remains
an errand girl, while actually
conveying radium, is constantly
being bombarded by iis emana*
lions, the particles travelling at a
rate of several thousand miles a
second. So, perhaps, after all,
she is not over-paid.
A very simple way to remove

A. Manson remarked emphatically lhat in any case, before any
of the city's franchises weie|hand-
wl over for any period whatever,
it will lie most advis&blc for the
council tO have the Services "I
an expert counsel, who is a apCC-
iiilisi iu Municipal Agreements.
Several matters of detail were
mentioned, Imt these are io In-
fully investigated by thc Committee.
Electric Power Plant
On the subject of electric power
*t slightly different feeling pervaded the Board. This matter is
considered of even more importance than ihe gas proposition, li
is pretty well admitted by the
titi/etis that Prince Ku|H-ri has
only   1600 II. P. power of Woi d-
worth Witter secured, while il
is    known    that    the    Tsimpsean
Company owns a very large share
of the water powers within reasonable reath of the city.
/Vgain Mt. Naden was of opinion
that the city cannot handle a
power plant so economical I y as a
company can  handle il.     Ile  re-
frcred to the annual changing ol

tin- dtj council, and asked how
such a system could work with a
commercial company.
Industries Look for Power
A wise reminder came Irom
M. M. Stephens who showed
thai industries seeking a profitable
location always look for plenty
of power itt moderate prices.  The
sooner I'rince Kupert can advertise
that power is available cheaply
here, the better for the city.    This
was .nost heartily agreed by all
the members. William Lynch jusl
hinted that il the *���?:{<��� per II. P.
mentioned In the Tsimpsean Company's proposals is really cheap
there can be no harm in I'rince
Rupert's keeping  herself open  to
the coming of other companies.
Competition ii was felt, would
improve thc service, and for tlu*
same eason the idea was strongly
supported by the Board that the
gas and electric franchises should
