prietor of an alleged "blind pig."
It ih sai.l that Camozzi, Gregoria and
others, called at Mosca's cabin to get a

OIL AS FUEL IN
PRINCESS MAY
FIRST C. P. R. STEAMER AS OIL
BURNER TO CALL HERE
Since She Hit Reef Last August She
Has Been Changed ���New System
Means Saving of Much Money and
Time���Due Here Tomorrow.
Whin the ('. P. R. steamer Princess
May arrives from Vancouver on Thursday afternoon it will be the lirst C. P. R.
botit to anchor Bt this |>ort run as nn
oil burner. Since she met with an
accident, last August, by hitting a reef
near Skagway, she has Been completely
overhauled and fitted with the new
fuelling system.
The advantages of thc oil system
over coal are, economy, cleanliness, less
trouble, time saving, etc., etc.
Other C. P. R. steamers are being
fitted with oil burning boilers. The
company have erected some big Steel
storage tanks at Vancouver on the
wharf and as fast as supplies come
from the oil wells in California the tanks
are filled and then the boats are supplied
as required.
A boat can carry enough oil that will
last her on a trip from Vancouver to
Alaska anil back.
This is something B coal boat does
not do. She has to call at Nanaimo
to coal up which cannot be done in less
than five or six hours.

The power rights had been secured
previous to the Incorporation of th

Woodworth for domestic supply pur-

present city council. Its lire and water

that to secure the whole rights of the

advisable. Two ways existed to acquire
these. One wtus by expropriation, tin-
other by purchase outright. Purehass
outright Was decided on, asexpropriation
would mean that only the water f��i

As the City Engineer advises the
council lhat aliout 1800 horso-|H wi r

this may help oul the lighting problem;
pretty soon, it was thought that the

P.O. BOX 1545
PRINCE RUPERT. B.C.
There is no excuse for any woman
having her hair arranged unbecomingly
in these days,  for so  many different
t| styles of hair-dressing are in vogue that
I no matter what her features some one
' style may be found which will set them
off to the best  advantage.    Very  few
women   realize   the   important   place
that the arrangement of the hair plays
in one's whole appearance.    Hair unbecomingly  worn,  or  in  a disorderly,
untidy  condition  will   ruin   the  effect
of the most stylish costume.   Perhaps
the best way to do is to choose the
style of hair-dressing most suited to the
face and then adhere to it.    Even if
one's profile be naturally poor it can be
improved if the hair is arranged properly.
There  are  certain  general  rules  in
regard  to   the   arrangement  of   one's
hair that every woman should know.
A   round   full   face   invariably   looks
best if thc hair is worn loosly fluffed
about  it,  with  the  coils  tilaced  high,
or directly on top of the head.   Some
thin  faces look  well  in this,  but  thc
majority appear at their best with the
I hair worn rather flat on top, but puff-
i ed   loosely   at   the  sides.    This  lends
: breadth   to   the   face,   and   seems   to
I soften the sharp lines.    A parting in
I the  centre or  at  one side,  with  thc
' sides  softly   rolled,   and   the   coils  or
braids worn  low   at  t he  back of the
. head is  nearly  always becoming to a
, thin face.    For such  a one the hair
must never be worn high, hut always
at or below the crown of the head.
In  i-onibs,  barretles,  bandeaux  nnd
other accessories there is a wide range
from which to choose this season, but
it   should   be   remembered   that   the
i fewer   of   such   ornaments   used   the
; more reflned and becoming is usually
the effect.    Such  additions when too
ornate or too nu nerous are in extremely bad taste, and will spoil the beauty
of an otherwise attractive coiffure.   The
Grecian bands are still worn, though
they are not suited to every face.   The
once popular sidecomb is quite out of
date.   Jet is being very much used, but
is only IH an-1ful on certain shades of
I hair.    Puffs  and  curls  are  still  very'
, much in evidence, though less so than
some time ago.   The tendency seems toward simpler styles, which will reveal
the true outlines and shape of the bead.

Fresh from Fashion Land
i    Chicago, March 30. ���Farewell, a fond
i farewell to thc feminine binding corset,
and that mysterious feminine perquisite
called "lingerie," and greetings to the
harem skirt and "tights."
This was the dictum of the dressmakers' convention assembled here after
a full discussion of the new fashion
problem. A dainty silken girdle, wilh
a few short stays, is to replace the
cumbersome corset. It is made possible, the dressmakers declure, by thc
extremely  high   waisted  empire  effect
To keep linoleum bright, use sweet
milk and water to wash it.
To brighten oil lamp burners, boil
for fifteen minutes in buttermilk.
Cut flowers will last well if a piece
of salt petre be added to the water in
which they stand.
A piece of mosquito wire is an excellent thing to rub a flat iron over lo
take off the rust.
Outside leaves of lettuce, if boiled,
chopped, drained and served on toast
like spinach leaves are delicious.
To save grease when frying doughnuts, put half a teaspoonful of ginger
into the grease when hot.
One way to remove tea, coffee and
fruit stains from linen is to rub butter
into them and then soak in hot water
and soap.
To remove snots from light dresses,
apply a little fuller's earth made into
a paste with spirit, and brush off when
dry.
Unbleached calico shrinks very much
when washing. When making it up an
extra inch a yard should be allowed
for this.
Thu Euiopean method of cooking
green peas is to boil them before shelling, and then to season and reheat them
after shelling.
When the finger nail is bruised, soak
in ice water, then hold the finger upright for half an hour. It will then
prevent an ugly black spot.
REAL FRIENDSHIP
Who cares for the burden, the night and
the rain,
And the steep, long, lonesome road,
When at last through the darkness a
light shines plain,
When a voice calls hail, and a friend
draws rein,
With an arm for thc stubborn road?
Tho' his way lie over the prairies green,
And mine up the sunrise hill,
Tho' no more in my path may his light
be seen,
And I never may travel the leagues between,
His succor aids nn- still.
For life is the chance of a friend or two
This side of the journey's goal.
Tho' the world be a deserts the long
night thro',
Yet the gay flowers bloom and the sky
grows blue,
When a soul salutes a soul.

LILLOOET BEGINS SEASON'S SEA
SURVEY WORK
Making for Hecate Straits to do Six
Months' Cruiee for the Locating of
Beacons and Buoys Marking Rocks.
Early this month the Dominion
government survey .steumer Lillooet,
which hus been lying at Esquimalt for
some Unit1, will leuve on her annual
surveying cruise in British Coounibiu
wmers. The cruck little vessel will
head for Hecate Straits, und will spend
ubout six months making soundings and
locating rocks upon which lo have
beacons or buoys established,
This year ull the survey work will full
to the lot of the Lillooet, us li. M. S.
Bgeria luus been luid up. The steamer
will, therefore, huve u very busy season
and is not expected to finish her work
before the beginning "f November.
Although a great ileal of the survey work
in British Columbia waters luus been
done, still there are many uncharted
rocks yet to be located. The Egeria
hus been employed in the service for
many years und hud done u greut deal
towards mproving navigation in Canadian waters. She was, however, laid
up last winter by the British Government, antl it is understood that the
staunch old vessel may be secured by
the Dominion Government for a training
ship.
British Columbia Waters ure now
looked upon by steamship companies
plying along the coast as the liest
lighted and marketl unywliere. American
steamboat men have continually praised
the work of the Dominion Government,
antl have tried to induce their government lo follow out the same plan in
lighting Alaska waters.

An Object Lesson from the Printers
Ten days ago in urging the street laborers to seek arbitration in their dispute
as the proper and progressive method of arriving at a prompt and workable fettle-
mem we mentioned the fact that the International Typographical Union maintained a permanent arbitration board, and refused to countenance any strike
unless the supposed grievances had first been investigated and arbitration tried.
An object lesson has just been furnished by the very body of which we wrote,
the last mail bringing particulars of a sinking illustration of the value of the International Union's method-in this case all thejmore,strikingibecauseithe tlnter-
national Union went over the heads of the local otficers and ordered back to work
the men whom the local ollicers had ordered out.
The trouble arose over typesetting rates in the offices of the Chicago Examiner
and Chicago American. The offer of the papers to arbitrate was refused, and the
president of the local union ordered his men out on strike. That was on a Tuesday.
By next afternoon President James Lynch of the International Union wired to
Chicago from Washington disavowing the atrike and ordering the men back to
work. His order was promptly obeyed, and the matter is to be adjusted by arbitration, according to an agreement between the International {Union and the
American Newspaper Association. It MB
The prompt and decisive action of President Lynch has been widelyJcom-
mented on by the labor press, who realise the importance of living up to all con.
tracts they enter into, and tho folly of rushing into a strike until all peaceable
methods have been exhausted.
Tlie Rochester Labor Journal says: "James M. Lynch, president of the International Typographical Union, can't be bluffed on upholding a strike when it ia
uncalled for, as was the Chicago strike."
The United Mine Workers Journal in commenting on the matter adds: "Strike
first and reason after sometimes makes reasoning impossible. Belter keep on
reasoning first, then if reason fails the kicking propensities are in order. Thrice
is he armetl who hath his quarrel just, and reasoning will establish the justness more
fully before the strike than after it is entered into."
Notes and Comments
Alderman Pattullo's letter in yesterday's Optimist has already borne fruita.
Several |ieople called up the editor today to express their hearty support to the
proposal to declare a truce to all internecine disputes and lo make a solid stand
for the progress of Prince Ru|K-rt and the development of the surrounding district.
The spirit of optimism ia in thc air.

TIPS OFF THE GUTTED STICK
Calgary, April 4.���Calgury has the
lacrosse fever, and since baseball ended
in such a fiasco last season the brightest
prosjiects for the establishing of Canada's
national game on a sound basis is in
evidence.
Lacrosse had a slight foothold here
some years ago, but the baseball fever
gave it u setback. Now the followers
of sport aie discarding baseball and
returning to their old love.
Montreal Exchange���"Nationals now
have all their last year's regulars signed
up with the exception of Gauthier and
Lalonde, on whose services Con Jones,
of Vancouver, has an option, which
holds good until April 15."
A New Westminster report says that
the Spring brothers were offered, and
refused, $2500 each to play lacrosse
this season with Vancouver. "But we
just couldn't sign up to play against
the boys," was the reason given for
the refusal of the brothers to accept
$5000 for live months' work.
BASEBALL HITS
Spokane, April 4.���Phil Cooney, shortstop of the champion Spokane team last
year, and who wus sent up to the big
leagues, will play with Spokane again
this season. He was given a trial by
Chicago but could not oust Joe Tinker
out of his job with the Cubs. Joe Cohn,
president of the Si>okanc Club, made
Murphy an offer for Cooney's services
and the Cub magnate accepted.

Do you realize that everv train of the
G. T. P. R. R. will be a living advertisement for our city ? The letters
stand for "Go To Prince Rupert Road"
���that's plain. The Grand Trunk chose
its name well and we are duly grateful. Just now the Grand Trunk is
making Prince Rupert but it will not bc
long before Prince Rupert will make
the Grand Trunk Pacific.
A modern railroad is a wonderful institution. Railroad building today is
not a gamble, it is a science. A railroad that would just make a town its
termlntlt just for the sake of making a
town would be committing suicide. It
would be llirting with the undertaker,
as my friend Shcrilf Small used to say
bnck in Missouri. A railroad chooses
its terminus for the trade it can get
there, for the freight it can bring there
uml take away from there. So you see
the railroad knew exactly what it was
doing when it chose Prince Rupert.
We know that many excellent engineers, many of the ablest business men,
many large capitalists compose the
railroad, and we know that their collective judgment must be good or they
would not be able engimiers, able business men or able capitalists. They
selected I'rince Rupert. You or I cannot have better judgment in the matter
than they did. That's our cue to prolit
by their judgment. Stick with Princo
Rupert and tell your friends nbout it.
If you don't know what to tell them
about Prince Rupert ask me nnd I'll
tell you whnt to sny. Also I shall give
you my book of Questions and Answers
on Prince Rupert. You can either send
that or copy it. It is easier to send it
or I'll send it for you. If you and I
keep on getting busy with telling the
outsiders about Prince Rupert, it will
not be long before we will nave twenty-

London, April 3.- King George today
created tlie Right Non. R. B. Haldane
Secretary for War. a Viscount. The
elevation of Mr. Haldane to the Peerage
has been anticipated for some time,
and is intended to strengthen the Government in the House of Lords.
Colonel J. E. B. Seely, Parliamentary
Secretary of the Colonial Office, Mils
been appointed Under-Secretary for
War, and Lord Lucas, Parliamentary
Secretary of the War Office, has been
made Under-Secretary of the Colonies.
The exchange of offices is consequent
on the elevation of the Secretary for
War, Mr. Haldane, which would place
both representatives of the War Office
in the House of Lords, it being customary
to have a representative of the chief
Government department in each House.
The report that Mr. Lloyd-George
as Chancellor of the Exchequer is now
about to reMgn is officially denied.
Mr. Haldane's promotion is merely
intended to relieve Lord Morley of
the heavy cask of leadership in the
House of Lords during Earl Crewe's
absence through illness.
The elevation to the upper House
of Mr. Haldane leaves a vacancy in
Haddington di\ision, Scotalnd, which
at the last election showed a Liberal
majority of 543.

Report on State of Mine
Prospects for the Blue Point Mines,
Portland Canal district, are bright
according to the report of T. J. Vaughan-
Rhys, mining engineer, presented to
the president and directors at their
meeting last week.
New Directors were appointed at
that meeting as follows; President, Dr.
Kergin, Prince Ru|x>rt; Vice-President
George Rudge, Port Simpson; Secretary-
Treasurer, G. R. Naden, Prince Ru|M>rt.
Boaid: J. E. Stark, Naius Harbor, H. T.
Ceperley, Vancouver; L. Bullock-Webster, Prince Rupert; and H. B. Rochester, Prince Rupert.
In his report, Mr. Vaughan-Rhys
states that the condition of the development work on the mine, which is
well advanced. There are two tunnels,
an upper and a lower one, driven into
the veins on the face of the mountain.
Ore showings langing in assay value
from 120.28 to SUS.'JS have been sampled.
A winter camp has been established,
and besides the main tunnels a number
of open cuts have been made. Concluding his report Mr. Vaughan-Khys
says:
"You are to be congratulated upon
the present appearance of the Blue
Poin; Mine. The upper tunnel was
disappointing iu its results inasmuch
as it apparently entered the ore shoot
at a point only 12 feet from the eastern
limit of the shoot. The lower tunnel
has entered into good ore containing
much less zinc sulphide and carrying
reasonably good values in silver and
lead. It is possible that this ore is the
western limit of the shoot in the upper
tunnel in which case the total length
of the ore shout will Ik- 15 feet |3us
160 feet plus 12 feet, a total rf 18" feet
with an average width of not less than
b2 inches antl containing an ore which
can be very easily concentrated. You
are fully justified in continuing expenditures for the further development
of the prn|H'rty."

Now comes the turn of thc Naas
Hiver for a gold rush. There are substantial indications that placer milling
can be profitably engaged in at the
headwaters of this river. Last fall
a considerable amount nf coarse placer
gold was brought oul frt.m that districl,
also some exceedingly rich samples of
free milling quartz.
Credit fur having made the lirst
discovery of gold here is given to Jack
Nelson who after wintering in Vancouver,
is now relumed to the scene to follow
up his discovery by further prospecting.
The lead from which the visible gold
was taken is eight feel in width at the
point where the samples were secured.
Mr. Nelson had no tools with him excepting a small prospecting pick, but
wiih this he was able in knock off
pieces of the quartz. These he brought
to Vancouver. The samples which did
not show the visible gold he hatl assayed, and the lowest return receiv.'d
amounted to ?!tl per ton. The other
samples be did not send to the assayer
as their value was apparent from the
quanti;.v of the yellow metal which was
visible to the naked eye.
He kept the results to himself until
yesterday as he was not desirous of
working up too much excitement which
would result in undesirable activity
on the part of others who might wish
to forestall him in further prospecting
nail properly locating his lind in Stewart,
however, the samples were shown to a
few Intimate friends, and it is from that
point that the rush to thc new Country
will centre.
Two weeks ago Mr. Nelson's partner,
Mr. A. (i. Willoughby, went to Stewart
and is by this lime on the ground,
with the necessary supplies antl tools
fur several months  work.
The discovery WSS made on White
Kiver, which is a branch of Ihe Naas
cmiing in from the south, antl to ihe
easl uf Naas lake. The placer gold he
found ill the bed uf this river, ami be
believes that with proper appliances be
will lie able lo take mil a large aninuiil
of gold from these diggings in a very
short lime. It was from Mr. Thus.

Province, that the information as to

Curtain on Gambling
"Y.u ure .teing .hat license hdders
are Queening .he- law," queried thc
Mayer. "And the board wish to have
gambling Stamped out. Rest assured
that the board is behind you in whatever
action you take in this respect." Commissioner Kirkpalrick was doubtful if
a conviction against gambling could be
secured if there was no rake off. The
matter was juggled for a time and then
dropped out.
The chief was empowered to buy
the supplies for his department with
the exception of ;he uniforms which
will be tendered for.
City Merchanta Kick
Prince Rupert merchants trading under
a  license  find  their  business is being
affected   by   itinerant   traders   selling
goods here from door to door not carrying
a   local  license.     A   number   of  local
'storekeepers   appealed   to   the   commissioners   for   protection.     There   is
a  city   by-law  governing  this  matter
and hereafter the Chief of Police will
' rigidly enforce it.
Complaint Againat Strikcra
A letter from Williams & Manson,
solicitors for S. H. Watson and Co.,
| city contractors, bearing the date of
March 16th complained about the
interference of strikers with men in the
employ of the contractors and called
the attention of the responsibility of
the council and police commissioners
in the matter.
Chief Vickers was authorized to do
all he could to keep the white dove
from being scared away.
Apparently there is some laxity in the
registration of births, dcr.ths and marriages that occur here, for the City
1 Health Committee asked that Chief
' Vickers see that lhe Provincial Act
��� governing this be carried out.
"This is a provincial matter," said
the Mayor, "but the Chief could assist
in the matter if he will."
The Chief volunteered. "I will."
The application for the  position of
Chief of Police from J. Pengilby, of
Vancouver, was filed.
Some other Insignificant matters were
duly approved.
The commissioners will meet again
on Monday, May 1st.

MAYOR BUSY ON
BY-LAW CHANGES
PROMISED ALTERATIONS IN PROCEDURE BY-LAW ANNOUNCED
Mayor Would Vote With Aldermen-
Enquiry Syatem to be Abolithed���
Quicker Plan With Notices of
Motion Propoaed.
Mayor Manson Monday night introduced his amended Procedure By-law.
Early in his municipal term he had
indicated that he would alter this by-law.
Briefly the amendments proposed are:
First; to later the hour fixed for the
first meeting of the new council from
12 noon en the day following their
election to 8 p.m. Second; to provide
for the Mayor's voting along with the
other members of council. The Mayor
of course has a casting vote. Third;
to provide that notice of motion may
be given by posting the notice written,
on a board placed at the City Hall for
the purpose, so that it need not be
necessary for the mover to wait a whole
week before making his motion. Fourth;
questions and answers to them under
Mayor Manson's by-law are to be put
in writing, and no discussion of them is
allowed. Fifth; committees are reduced from five to three as was done
by Mayor Manson on his election.
In introducing these amendments
Mayor Manson remarked that the
amended by-law was modelled after
the Victoriu Procedure By-law which
went in accordance with the Municipal
Clauses Act. Copies of the by-law as
amended were distributed among the
aldermen who are to consider them at
home.
