above motion went throunh at last
night's crowded meeting of the P, R. I. A.
in the Industrial Hall. Strong speakers
gave it iheir support, and the strikers
whose voting strength is said to number
over three humdred, heartily concurred.
Want Boycott Declared
Another motion affecting the business
men of the ciiy was in these terms:
Moved that every man in the Union
boycott every business man in town who
has helped the contractors by speaking
or acting against the P. R. I. A. This
also was carried, and with it a further
motion that every union man in town
boycott any and every business house
which feeds a scab. Notices are lo be
placed about the lown to this effect,
and the names and descriptions ot
scabs are to be ciiculated through intuitions over the United States.
A Publicity Campaign
Of interest also to those in business
in or concerned wilh the city's progress
is the motion to the effect lhat accounts
of wages, general conditions, cost of
living, climatic conditions, and the
particulars of the present strike shall be
sent to every local branch of lhe 1. W. W.
in all the United Suites und Europe.
Detailed accounts of affairs her are also
to be sent to the Industrial Workers
at Vancouver, and to the publication
"Solidarity" to ensure that workers
in the Coasl Cities may bc well informed
of the facts.
Instructions arc lo be sent by wire
to thc unions in Vancouver to have
more strike notices posted in lhat city,
and to publish them iu all Union iiapers.
The atrike sign is to be carried more
frequently in Vancouver wherever laborers who might be coming to Prince Rupert may sec it and take warning.
Will Picket Contract*
By a resolution passed last night the
strikers have arranged to be up betimes
and have the contracts strongly picketted
before eight o'clock every morning.
In geneial thc attitude of the strikers
towards the idea of conferences with
the contractor or arbitration is quite
complaisant and agreeable, but they
atand firmly by the demand for 45
centa per hour.
TO CONSIDER
ARBITRATION
STRIKE SITUATION STILL AT A
DEADLOCK
Mayor Proposed Arbitration and

Their Aaaociatea before Deciding.
It cannot be aaid that any difference
has been made as yet in the strike
situation by the bringing together of
thc contractors antl nieti through the
good offices of Mayor Manson. Ihe
following is the Mayor's account nl
last night's conference in his own
words: .  .
"A meeting of the contractors and the
men's committee was held last night.
There was a quiet discussion of matt.'rs
from both sides in an amicable and
friendly way, but no mutual arrangement was come to. .    .
"I proposed that they should submit
thc matter lo arbitration Tit.' contractors expressed themselves wUUng
to arbitrate the whole question without
any minimum or maximum wage rate
being set. The men were not in I
position to agree to ����*��* g"d
posals as they had only been MtTOCUal
to receive any proposals made by the
contractors and submit the. to a
meeting. They expressed some doubt
as to whether under itar**)
could agree to be bound by ��'��'""*��"���
"The proposal to arbitrate seems to
be the wisest course &P""��J"*5
hope that both sides wtll see their way
to consent to it."

NINE MINERS KILLED
Mass of Looae Slate Fell on Them as
They Worked
(Special to the Optimist)
l'iitsburg, March 2:1. -Nine miners--
all foreigners but one - were killed at
the Hazel mine at East Cannonsburg
today when a mass of slate fell on them
as ihey were at work loading a car.
TRAIN LOAD OF NEGROES
TO SETTLE ON THE G.T.P.
Say   They Are the Advance Guard of an  Army of
Some Thousands Who Are Coming in���
Will Settle on Lands Near
Edmonton
(Special co the Optimist)
Emerson, Manitoba, March 32.���A
special train load of negro Immigrants is
being held up here, while a rigorous
medical Inspection is being made among
them. The negroes are lieing brought
in to settle on points of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, near Edmonton.
They were permitted to pass the
boundary without being challenged by
the immigration officers. As il is ihey
cannot be objected to save on medical
grounds, hence the rigorous examination
that is being made among them.
So far only two of them have proved
to be below the standard of health and
physical efficiency demanded by the
Dominion authorities.
The alarm occasioned by the appearance of the trainload of blacks had not
been allayed by the Information given
by members of the party that they
are only the advance guard of a larger
body that are to follow aft.-r they are
settled on their lands. They say that
there are thousands of iheir fellow
Africans to follow if they succeed well
on the land.
MORE PRIVATE
WARDS NEEDED
HOSPITAL STAFF SAY THEY ARE
OVERWORKED
Hoapital Board Will Approach the
City Council and Aak for a Further
Contribution Will Try and Raise
More Revenue.
"We have reached this stag', gentlemen, that we have now a hospital which
is a credit to the town. We are in debt
for it; and ye., right at its very inception, we are up against the proposition that we need more room in it.
That is the whole matter in a nutshell."
At the Hospital Board meeting yesterday P. I. Palmer in these words
dealt directly with the representation
by the Matron lhat there is a shortage
of private wards in the new hospital.
Miss MacTavish suggested that without
a great deal of expense thc large Maternity Ward might bc subdivided into
a seiies of small semi-private wards
which would in a measure meet thc need,
and the House Committee of the Board
have already taken steps to arrange
for this. Mr. Scott was inclined to
think that the large wartl should be
more permanently partitioned off than
is the Matron's plan, but the opinion
of the Board is that it would be a little
premature lo undertake this alteration
at present.
Further financial aid from the city
is counted upon by thc Beard, and
yeaterday afternoon a committee consisting of the President, O. H. Nelson,
and P. I. Palmer was appointed to wait
upon the city council on thc sibject.
President D. C>. Stewart was also
anxious that an effort should be made
to enlist further sulsicriptions from those
citizens and newcomers who have not
as yet been approached. He appointed
a committee consisting of himself, with
Messrs. Clark, Palmer, Thompson and
Kirkpatrick to attend to this.
Assistant Secretary William Wright
with Mr. P. 1. Palmer were deputed t ���
assist at the Choral Union Concert in
Helpful Talks to Business Men
Mr. Storekeeper
Do You Know?
That the best advertised store
in this or in any city wouldn't
change places with the second
best advertised store for any
consideration whatever I
part aid of the Hospital Fund tonight.
Mr. Palmer reported that the sale by
sale by dollar ticket of the Slot) Prince
Rupert club Debenture gifted to the
Fund, wits making surprising progress
and he had hardly any tickets left for
sale though extra ones had been printed.
In future the Assistant Sectctary
will bring in a fortnightly financial
report, and report of Hospital affairs,
This will be due on the first and fifteenth
of each month. Other dutits of the
Assistant Secretary will be detailed more
particularly at a subsequent meeting.
Staple drugs required at the Hospital
will as far as possible, be purchased from
local firms. A recommendation by the
House Committee lhat prescriptions
filled from Hospital slock, be charged
extra was agreed to.
It was again pointed out by members
of the Board that the Hospital Si all
is at present very hard-worked Indeed.
The Matron has for some time now-
been pulling in almost continuous
duty, nevei sure of any reasonable
spell off duly for sleep or recreation. All
the nurses are working at least fifteen
hours a day, and though another nurse
is expected by the Camosun on Friday,
another still be will requited. The
Matron is in communication with an
applicant who may bc here shortly.
Copies of the three local newspapers
arc being supplied to thc Hospital fiee
of charge, and the Secretary was Instructed to write to the proprietors of
the Journal, Empire and Opiimist
thanking them for tlie courtesy.
PERHAPS FRANCE
MAY ARBITRATE
PRESIDENT TAFT SUBMITS PROP-
OSITION TO AMBASSADOR
It is Likely That France Will Wait
and See What Briliah People Do
With the Propoaition to Arbitrate.
(Special to the Optimisti
Paris, March 28.    It is learned here
that   President   Taft   has   approached
M.  Jusserand,  the  French  ambassador
ut Washington, with a view to arranging
a comprehensive agreement between
ihe tinned states and France whereby
any  differences  between the  nations
will be submitted to a court of arbitration.
A similar proposition has already been
submitted by President Taft to the
British people, so it is unlikely that
the proposal will lake any definite
shape until it has lir<t been SCted Upon
by the British people. If the Anglo-
American proposal is adopted it Would
gu a long way to pave the way for an
agreement between the United Btatai
and France.

Memoirs of a Noble Woman
What Mr. Carnegie called the "two
foulest blots" on our nineteenth cen-
lury civilization were the owning of
mun by man and the killing of man by
man���slavery and war. Slavery has
been abolished from the world, but
the scourge of war remains. It is
a significant fact that the two greatest
books that have been written against
slavery and war were the novels of
two women���"Uncle Tom's Cabin,"
by Harriet Beecher Stowe, and "Die
Watfen Nieder," or "Lay Down Your
Arms," by Bertha von Suttner. Mrs.
Stowe is dead, but her work is accomplished. Baroness von Suttner still
lives.
Bertha Kinsky was born at Prague
in 1842. She was a descendant of a
long and distinguished Austrian military
family. Her father, who died before
her birth, was a retired major general
in the Austrian army.
Though in no sense an infant prodigy,
she appears to have been an unusually
intelligent and fun-loving girl, with a
talent for music inherited from her
mother. As she came into her late teens
she was evidently brilliant, beautiful
and fascinating, for the inevitable romances and offers of nun ri age ensued.
"The right one," however, did not yet
appear.
Her musical education had been such
a drain on her mother's slender income that Bertha now resolved to support herself. She accordingly took a
situation as instructor and companion
to four grown up daughters in the baronial house of Suttner in Vienna. Living at home with his parents and sisters was Artur Gundaccar von Suttner,
then a youth of twenty-three. Though
Bertha was twenty-nine, a friendship
soon sprang up between them which
rapidly ripened into love. The four
sisters were in the secret, but "Papa"
and "Mamma" Suttner were not told,
as an alliance, from the Suttner point
of view, was absolutely cut of the
question. Finally the parents learned
of the affair and Bertha was requested
to leave. Having come across an advertisement whichread, "A very wealthy,
cultured, elderly gentleman living in
Paris desires to find a lady of mature
years, familiar with languages, aa secretary and manager of his nousehold,"
she applied for the position.
A favorable reply was received from
Alfred Nobel, then forty-one years old,
the famous inventor of dynamite. Bertha started for Paris after a tearful
farewell from her lover. She began
her new work bravely, but the "unendurable agony" of separation had the
same effect it had had ten thousand
times before. Bertha left the Nobel
establishment, returned to Vienna and
eloped with Artur. The parents would
not forgive, so the brave young couple
went to the far distant Caucasus,
where for nine long years they lived
in happy and blissful poverty.
Here began a marriage as beautiful
as that of ihe Browning", which ripens
ed with the years and was only broken
by the death of the beloved husband in
1902. During the period of exile the
happy pair supported themselves by
giving lessons in mu ic and languages
and by wri.ing. Thc products of thi ir
pens were soon in requisition in all
thc leading papers of liermany and
Austria. Finally the paren.s relented
ami they came back to spend the rest
of their days under the ancestral roof.
From now on the devoted couple's
chief object in life was to promote the
cause of universal peace. "Lay Down
Your Arms" had already made the baroness known ull over Europe. She and
her husband were accustomed to attend
every year the meetings of the international peace congresses and the
sessions of the interparliamentary union.
She became the editor, with Fried, of
the leading Austrian peace organ and
that brought her into correspondence
with many of the greatest writers,
philanthiopists and statesmen Of Europe and wiih a ll the peace advocate-?
of the world. During this period she
had kept in correspondence with Alfred
Nobel, and it was she who suggested
to him the founding of the great yearly
prizes in peace, Ikerature, phyi.ics,
chemistry and medicine which bear l.is
name. Later she was herself crowned
wilh the Nobel peace prize, the only
womun yet to receive it. Since the
death of her beloved hunband she is
still carrying on tie w..rk to which they
both consecrated their lives. Her fume
will rest on her two supreme qualities,
her beautiful love for her husband and
her unswerving devotion to the cause of
peace.

The careful housekeeper covers her

SECRET OF HOW GEO.   H.  MUNROE GOT RICH QUICK
Received $500,000 From Would-be
Puichaaera of Marconi Wireleaa
for Stock He Never Owned and
Never Delivered���On Trial at New
York.
New York, Mareh 21. Hundreds of
bookkeeping entries were inquired into
today at the trial of George II. Munroe,
alleged to have received something like
$500,000 from investors for wireless
telegraph stock, which it Is alleged was
never delivered.
Munroe, who is on trial fcr alleged
misase of the mails in selling stock represented his firm as American agents
for the Marconi Wireless Telephone
company of England, according to testimony. Walter M. Watson, Munroe's
former stock transfer clerk, today testi-
lied that at no time did the Munroes
have more than one thousand I hares of
English Marconi, though it is alleged by
government officials that the firm received money for upwards of fifty
thousand shares.
After Munroe had fled to Canada, on
December, 31 1907, the cash found on
hand, including bank accounts, amounts
ed to $8.52.

The Coquet Waa Caught in Fierce
Blizzard Which Froze Her Steering
Gear up Captain Then Headed
Her for New York.
New York, March 22.���A fishing
boat like those which the Russian
warships tired upon olT the Dogger
bank is at anchor in New York harbor today, a surprising fight to the
old salts along the waterfront. She
is the steam trawler Coquet of Abet-
deen, Scotland, brought across the
Atlantic as the result of a scries of
accidents.
While in her regular station she wan
caught in a northeast storm with a
temperature 20 degrees below zero,
which froze up her wet gear. Hy the
time she had been thawed out and
gotten under control, she (was so far
out of her course that Captain Craig
decitled to head for New York. She tf
the first of her kind evei seen here,
and her high bow, strange gear, lofty
pilot house amidships and long engines
house drew a continual crowd of longshoremen and seamen to her dock. She
has u big catch on board.

Why Not Help the Poor Parent?
The suggestion made in this column a couple of days ago that it was a wise
policy for the Hospital Board to decline to raise their rates for maternity cases
was not lightly taken. The issue is one related to the more important considerations
of govemment. Even reciprocity is of less consequence to the upbuilding of a
country than the birthrate.
In its local considerations the increase of the rate might result in the hospital
treatment being rendered impossible for some who most need it. In its national
aspect not only the patients but the nation at large would be the loser by the
result. The state's interest in the health of the individual is a very real one. The
individual is a part of the state.
The natural affection between parent and child has blinded the eyes of the
mass to the fact that the stale's interest in the child is greater than that of the
natural parent. The state's interest is economic. The children are a part of the
state. Without a continuous supply of children the state dies. They are more
important to any nation than transcontinental railways, or steamships or mineral
wealth.
One of the amazing things���one which will bring merriment to the readers
of history a couple of thousand years hence���is the peculiar way in which the
nations have hitherto ignored their function as the Over-Parent. They have
given bounties for steel and iron and sugar industries, guaranteed bonds for railways,
subsidised steamships���and penalised parenthood. And upon the best of parents���
thc hardy, disciplined men and women of the working class, the penalties fall the
heaviest.
The rewards of industry have been so apportioned that the worker frequently
has little assurance of a competency during his working life. While most men
are well able to support a wife, the coming of every child constitutes a tax upon
the worker's resources, for which he gets an affectional, but no economic return.
Society seems to have organised itself into a conspiracy to make life hard for
the average man with a large family. Even the landlords refuse his money when
he wants to rent a shelter for his brood of youngsters. The state, whieh is waiting
to impose a tax on the earning power of his boys and girls the moment they go
to work, stands idly by, and watches him struggle to rear children for the state to
absorb. Small wonder that the modern family tends to the light housekeeping
type.
In some enlightened age the state will come to the aid of the parent, and from
selfish motives help to carry the costly burden of his family, just as it now offers
to his children a more or less free school education, on the theory lhat it pays the
nation to educate the children.
The principle has already been recognised by the state, and grants are made
to various cattle and poultry associations to encourage their industries. Later
on it will In- recognised that the idea may more profitably be applied to the human
species.
In the meantime the Hospital Board did well to refuse to increase the cost
of hospital treatment. The pity of it is that the hospitals should ever be short
of funds, or be obliged to seek support like some sort of poor relation, on charity,
A self-respecting state would scorn to have its sick members in any way dependent
on charity for medical attention.

There is a rumor round town that an effort is to be made to have the Govern,

this unreasoning ha��te.

FREE LAND WILL
|       S00N_BE GONE
IMMIGRATION IS RAPIDLY FILLING THE PRAIRIE PROVINCES
Twenty Million Acrea Were Taken up
by Homesteaders in the Paat Two
Yeara���Interview With Mr. F. T.
Griffin of the C. P. R.
Vancouver, March 22.���If the movement of immigration to the prairie
provinces comes up to expectations
this year, the last of the free lands will
be gone. Such is the prophecy of Mr.
F. T. Griffin, C. P. R. land commissioner,
who is in the city at present on a visit
Mr. Griffin says that over 200,000 people
went on the land last year, and the
influx for the coining season is now in
full swing. The present indications are
that Great Britain and the United
States will contiibute about equal
numbers of immigrants, though a considerable number will come from Germany, Austria and Scandinavia, and of
course the eastern provinces of Canada
will contribute a good percentage.
.To show how rapidly the prairie provinces are being settled, Mr. Griffin
points out that during the past two
years 20,000,000 acres of government
lands have been taken up by homesteaders, apart from sales by che C. P. R.
and the land companies. In the year
ending June last the C. P. R. land department sold 1,000,000 acres at an
average of $15 an acre. This included
irrigated lands which were sold at twice
the figure named. Of the original C. P.
R. land grant of 28,000,000 acres, but
7,600,000 are left.
The growing scarcity of land has
prompted a big movement into the Peace
River ountry, and other districts north
of Edmon.on, and the railways find
great difficulty in keeping pace with
the advance of settlement.

Mrs. Philip Snowdon, the English
Buffragette, said of marriage at a tea at
the Colony Club in New York:
"Marriage which makes two one, is a
lifelong struggle to discover which is that
one."
"Oh, that my son should wish to marry
an actress " shrieked the proud, patrician
mother.
"Now, ma, don't take on so," besought
the undutiful heir. "She isn't really an
actress; she only thinks she is."
The member of the Legislature, of
whom some graft stories had been
circulated, was about to build a house.
"You will want a southern exposure, I
suppose," said the architect.
"No, sir," said the man. "If you
can't build this house without exposure,
I'll get another architect."

Rev. Mr. James Tells of the Hudson
Bay Company's Vast Extent
111 the Presbyterian Church Hall
last night Rev. Sir. James of the Anglican Church read a most interesting
paper on the Hudson Bay Company.
He showed how tremendous has been
the effect of this great company's
Influence in the development of Canada.
The very word "Canada" as he pointed
out, being symbolic of that development. Originally the word meant a
little village of the Huron? on the river
Si. Lawrence. Now it stands for the
mighty range of the whole grand Dominion. And the Hudson Bay Company-
have done much to pioneer the progress
of that development from Canada the
village to Canada the continent-embracing Dominion. G. R. Naden presided
over a will attended gathering, and the
cordial thanks of the Presbyterian Church
Club were extended to Rev. Mr. James
for his address.
CHAMPIONS    HAREM    SKIRT
| Says He Was Looking for Name
Plates in a Flat for His Secretary
When White Man Came out and
Beat Him.
New York, March 20���Booker T.
i Washington wits not able to appear in
i ccurt again today because of the injuries
| he received the other night at the hands
I of Albert I'lrich, a carpenter who is
1 held in $1500 bail.
I'lrich, a white man, maintains today ihat he was acting within his rights
when he pursued the negro educator
for several blocks before a policeman
appeared. Ignorant of the negro's
Identity, he declared that his wife had
complained to him of a negro she had
! met in the hallway of their flat house
in Wesl Sixty-third street.
Mr. Washington, who was sent to
Elewer hospital where sixteen stitches
were taken in his scalp, asserted that
his mission to that neighborhood was
perfectly legitimate, and that he had
been made the innocent victim of an
atrocious assault.
Mr. Washington, who went to his
apartment at the Hotel Manhattan
after his wounds were dressed, told
the police that he had received a letter from his secretary saying that D.
C. Smith, thc auditor of Tuskagee college of which he is the head, was in
New York and desired to see him.
"This  letter  said   that   Mr.   Smith
was slopping with a cousin, giving the
name and address," said Mr. Washington.    "On Sunday I attended church
services  twice   and   after  speaking  at
one church in the evening, I recalled
the  letter concerning  Smith,  and  decided to look him up.   But I discovered  that  I  had  left the letter at  the
I hotel, but I thought I could recall the
I name as something like Moore and the
| address  as  being  in  West  Sixty-third
street.    I went  there and commenced
to look at the name plates on the letter boxes in the halls of the different
houses, seeking the name of Mr. Smith's
cousin.   It was while thus engaged that
1 was attacked."
Ulrich, in an interview said, "My wife
said she had seen a negro in the hall
and that# he spoke to her. I went out
and saw a man in the hall of the vestibule
door ahead of me."
Ulrich said he saw the negro re-enter
the hallway and later saw him bending
down and peering through the keyhole
Harry Furniss Prefers It to Present
Microbe-Gatherer
London, March 20.���Harry Furniss,
the artist, champions the cause of the
harem skirt, in a statement in The
Times. He suggests that it should be
made a permanent fashion, as, from
the point of view of commomsense,
comfort and hygiene, the garment is
far preferable to the present microbe-
gathering costumes.
Instead of the "harem," however, he
would call it the "ankle" skirt.

New York, March 20���Sir ThomasG.l
Shaughnessy, president of the C. P. R.,
and Giflord Pinchot were fellow passengers on the last trip of the steamship

in England he expected to place oidere
for the building of the new two ships
for the Pacific trade, running between
Vancouver and the Orient. These
steamers will be about 10,000 tons each.
Sir Thomas said he thought the general
feeling in Canada was not favorable to
reciprocity.

This advertisement clipped from the
Hosti'ii Post gives the story of the
wonderful development now going on
in Canada. Look out for British Columbia. The profits to investors in
Town lots in all Grand Trunk Divisional
and Terminal Points will astound the
world. Buy now. Ask Uncle Jerry
for price lists and full information.
LAST YEAR
REAL ESTATE OWNERS IN
Western Canada
MADE
$100,000,000
From thc moBt accurate figures obtainable, over One Hundred Million
Dollars was made by real estate owners in growing cities and towns of
Western Canada last 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 each city during the
last five years. These figures indicate
that investments in !ive, growing cities
in Western Canada are as safe and
sure as an investment can be, and that
100 per cent, profit each year is almost
a certaintv.
THIS YEAR
THEY WILL UNDOUBTEDLY  MAKE   $100,-
000,000   MORE
You have an opportunity now to
participate in these immense profits by
being one of the original purchasers of
town lots in the Grand Trunk Pacific
addition to the fast growing Western
Canadian cities, otherwise known as
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Division Points
WATROUS, MELVILLE, WAINWRIGHT,
BIGGAR
The Grand Trunk Pacific offers in
these splendidly located, fast growing
Division Points and in the townsite of
Tofield an opportunity for the investor
to share in the large profits that are
sure to accrue as a result of the rapid
and substantial growth that characterizes Grand Trunk Pacific Division
Points and well located cities and
towns in Western Canada.
The Grand Trunk Pacific does not offer townsites or additions so located as
to make investments in them of questionable value. The object in selling
these lots at the low prices at which
they are offered is to encourage the upbuilding of these cities from which the
Grand Trunk Pacific will derive vastly
more benefit th in from the sale of lots.
Now is the time to buy. Choice lots
range from $100 upwards on easy payments of 10 per cent, cash and 10 per
cent, a month. You make your purchase direct and secure title from the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
Write for literature and make your
selection while the prices are extremely low and the possibilities unlimited.

Jerry, P.O. Box 906, Prince Rupert.
I told you that Barnum is supposed
to have said that the American people
love to be humbugged. I also said it
was a lie. Even if Barnum did say it
he knew he told a lie, for HE never
humbugged the American or any other
people. He was the Father of the
modern circus and he gave a better
show every year; he gave the people
more than they ever expected--HE
GAVE THE PEOPLE THEIR MONEY S WORTH. And Barnum succeeded well. He died a very rich man and
in his life he mnde people laugh, a great
accomplishment. His success was due
entirely to the fact that he gave the
people their money's worth. And that
is the key to the success of any business. 1 made it my motto when I struck
my first job many years ago way back
in Missouri. That is my motto yet.and
that is the motto of the Co-Operative
Realty Company.
Don't imagine my business is too big
for you and that you would rather do
business with a smaller firm. The
smaller firm may do as much for you,
but there is no "may" about me. I will.
I am never to busy'to talk to anyone.
I am on the constant look-out for an
opportunity for someone. I may have
one for you or you may have one for
someone else. I havo several hundreds
of these "Bomeones else" wanting to
find there opportunity here. Yours
may be one of those that is wanted, so
better see me and tell mc about it.
