Wa��hington���Snags began to loom
up in the pathway of the Canadian
reciprocity agreement before it had
been in the hands of Congress for twenty-
four hours. Some confidtntly predict
the failure of the bill to make a passeag
through the House. On the other hand
then- is a great sentiment behind the
agreement and while it^ supporters
are not making a noise they are none
the less confident.
Toronto - A special wire from Washington says lhat the Kvening Star of
thai city states editorially in regard
to the advantages to be derived by
both from the agreement that: "in
time the thoughts of the Canadians
may turn toward annexation. Thc
isolation and the humiliation of the
colonies of Great Britain will not be
for ever endurable. Mianwhilc we will
have full reciprocity in exchange of
citizens and products, and steady Americanization."
Murder at Hazelton
Sheriff Shirley is to-day in receipt of
a telegram from Deputy Sheriff Stephenson at Hazelton statin-? that an Indian has been committed for trial there
for murder. The sheriff has notified
Judge Young, and the prisoner will be
sent below to await thc New Westminster assizes.
The liberalism of the west will be
wonderfully strengthened by the effects
of the great rally held in the Mclntyre
Hall last night An effective working
organization was assured not only by
the appointing of an executive of repre- I
senlative character, but in the entltusi-
Utic character and the large dimensions '
of the meeting itself. The primary object of the meeting was the election of
Office bearers and an executive. Besides
tbe routine work there were a number
of interesting speeches delivered, and
taken all in all tbe meeting wus an excellent augury for the future of liberal
ism in I'rince Kupert.
l'r.ii.e for Government
As befitted the occasion, ex-mayor
Stork, the president, occupied the
chair. He claimed credit was due the
I'rince Kupert Liberal Association for
the building of the government telegraph between here and Stewart, tbe
securing of an appropriation for the
building of u government wharf at
Stewart, the securing of an appropriation for wharves at Mas-sett and Charlotte City, and a better steamship service between here and Stewart. He
complimented the Hon. Mr. Templeman
upon securing an up-to-date wireless
stution al Digby.
Other things of value to thc city
which their member had been able to
secure for them was the establishment
of a quarantine station and a marine
agency. He thought they had every
reason to be satisfied with the work
which the Association had done in the
past and also to be proud of their
Honored the Leaders
Mr. Stork then moved the following
resolution which was seconded by Mr.
A. J. Morris and carried  with  acclam-,
"That the I'rince Kupert Liberal
Association at its annual meeting held
January 2lith. 1911, tenders to Sir
Wilfrid Laurier an expression of the
confidence, esteem and loyalty which
we feel for the great leader of the
Liberal party, whose sterling worth
and statemanship is to-day regarded
as a national asset, und under whose
guiding hand Canada is prospering
und expanding in a manner before
never equalled in ber history,
"We also thank Sir Wilfrid for the
visit he and the members of his Government paid to I'rince Kupert last
August, enabling him to observe the
wealth, tbe growth and the possibilities of Northern British Columbia,
and the country for which I'rince Rupert is the natural distributing centre,
and also to express our extreme satisfaction for the attention which the
federal Government is giving to future requirements of this port.
"We extend to Sir Wilfrid our Bin-
cere congratulations on hiB continued
good health and trust that he may
I long be spared to grace the high office
which he fills with such credit to our
country and distinction to himself.
"We also desire to express our ut- our children of the formation of tbe
most confidence in our member Hon. Liberal Association of I'rince Hi,pert

One   Hundred Joined
After the  resolution had been adopt
r. Cow per gave a most interesting sketch of the Liberal movement from its beginnings deep rooted
in the history of thc human race. He
showed how since thu earliest beginnings of  social government there   has
ed, the meeting was devoted to the task   always been a party holding to existing

Hon. Vice-President Hon. W. Tern,
President-A. J. Morris.
First Vice-President���Dr. Kergin.
Second Vice-President-G. It. Naden.
Secretary-Treasurer���P. W. Anderson.
The list of officers shows one more
than last year, that of second vice-president. This was done on the motion
of Mr. Morris seconded by Alderman
Pattullo. The motion also provided for
the extension of the executive from
five to fifteen.
The executive bad to be balloted for.
As there were a large number of nominations the process wus a long one, It
resulted in the formation of the following strong executive body to carry out
the work of the organization: Messrs.
Fred Stork, W. 1'. Lynch, Puttullo,
Stewart, Dawson. Munson, O'Reilly,
Sloan, Trotier,   Stalker, Bennett, Fri/.-
sell, Phlllipson, Emmerson and Keeley.
"Young Liberal."  Club
While the ballot was being counted
Mr. Morris moved that u Young Liber*
uls Association be formed in I'rince Kupert. There was a large body of young
men in the hall who hud already subscribed to the parent body and it wub
evident that the suggestion of a young
Liberal Association fell upon good
ground. It was received
heartiest enthusiasm and thc
tion was carried unanimously,
Four of the young men were appointed a committee to organize the first
meeting of the Young Libcrul Association of I'rince Rupert.
While the ballots were being counted
Mr. J. S. Cowper was called upon to
speak, and was greeted with enthusiastic applause.
"This occasion," he said, "marks an
epoch in the hiBtory of Prince Rupert to
which many will look back in thc years
to come.   Years  hence  we  shall  tell
1 fluence at the root of  the  great   wave
��� carrying Canada forward today, Mr.
Cowper said, "The West attracts the
liberal type���the man who wants to get
away from the old order of tl.ings,
where   hereditary   right   holds   sway.
1 The spirit of the West is liberal and I
am sure that most of the men in I'rince
Kupert are, if they only knew it, liberals."
Concluding after a reference to the
satisfaction lie felt thut the Dominion
Government wus in harmony with the
idea of reciprocal relation! with our
neighbors over the border, Mr. Cowper
stirred his hearers with thc cnll, "if
we nre going to make I'rince Kupert a
great town, if we are going to see that
British Columbia is governed not by
corporations, but by the people for the
people, we have got to do it by education, und to this end let us make Prince
Rupert's Liberal Association the one
great educational institution in tbe last
great West." (Loud nnd repeated ap-
pluuse greeted Mr. Cowper's concluding sentences.)
Wanted a Fair Paper
Mr. A. M. Munson complimented Mr.
Cowper   upon  his  address,   saying he
seemed to have  imbibed  the  spirit of
his lute   chief,   Dr.   Macdonald.   while
working on the   Globe.    He  explained
the action and thc line of thought   that
prompted the purchase of the Optimist.

in practice. He appealed to liberals to
look beyond the narrow end of self-interest and parochialism to the broad end
of the greatest good for greatest number, and not only of the city, but of
the province and the whole Dominion.
(Loud applause).
President Morris intimated that when

clothes with distinction and always
appear chic and to the best advantage.
3. Because they make excellent wives

A Lesson to The Workers
The workers of Prince Rupert have nol had long to wait for evidence as to
the real nature of the promises made to thtm by certain aldermanie candidates,
Under the circumstances the strong language used by them in their resolution
of disgust at the council's treatment is quite pardonable.
It would have been an annoying enough thing if the members of the council
had turned to them after securing their votes and said "Go to. All we wanted was
your votes. Now we have got them, you and your demand can go to blazes.1
But il would not have been nearly so annoying as the elTorts which were made to
wriggle out of their promises by raising points nbout the nationality of the workers.
That is more than annoying, it is insulting.
Thut is the unpardonable as|>ect of the question, and one that the workers
would do well to remember. As if forty-five cents worth of work done by an It alinn
or a Slav is not worth as much as forty-five cems worth of work done by any other
man.   It is rather a woeful comedown for those aldermen who were present at the
winter bv m��n

Expose of Some of the Means by Which
Unscrupulous Mediums Prey Upon
the Superstitious and Gullible
Podmore, the noled Englishman who
spent the best part of his life in exposing spiritualistic frauds, has recently passed away, and as far as the cult
of Spiritualism is concerned he might
as well never huve lived* For every
faker that Podmore unmasked, another
sprang up. Even the fradulcnt mediums whom he had specifically shown
up refused to remain premanently disgraced. They changed their names, or
moved to a new country or town or remaining at home waited a couple of
months until the lirst shock of the exposure had vanished. They then resumed business again at the old stand
; often with the same victims. The be-
j lievers in Spiritualism will say that

Burns' banquet on Wednesday and who applauded every reference to "A man's j of^. ^ , ,
it read, "with the exception of members of the Prince
ation who arc not liritish-born."
On the day before the election, the Optimist warned the electors -working
men and otherwise   in these words:
"The election promises of candidates are notoriously unsafe things to
go by.   The less scrupulous a man is, the more he is willing to promise.   The
man who never intends to fill a promise can afford to be prodigal in his promises."
In this connection it is pleasing to note the appreciation of Aldermun Pnt-
tullo's etlorts to give the men juatice. "He was the only alderman who refused
to make us any promise: yet he was the only one who showed himself willing to
help us when the moment came" was the tribute paid him by one of the workers'
No matter what thc result of the pressure of public opinion on the council
to force them to live up lo their promises, the lesson of the incident should not
bc forgotten by the working men���and others.
The Reciprocity Agreement
It is always unwise lo hallo until one is out of the woods, and it must lie borne
in mind by all Canadians, that while any proposals assented to by the Canadian
representatives in the reciprocity negotiations ntWashington are binding on the
Government, that the United Slates representatives were not clothed with plenipotentiary powers. Their conclusions are subject to ratification by ths United
States senate.
In these duys of high cost of living, it is satisfactory to note that the proposals
if carried into effect will place over $00,000,000 of food products on the free list,
and remit over $7,000,000 in duties. This $7,000,000 is at present paid by thc
consumer in dribs and drabs at t he (orner grocery and t he meat store. Some future
generation will become hilarious over the story of their ancestors who wanted food
so badly that they imposed taxes on it to muke it more difficult for nnyone to obtain.
Thc same principle applies to ihe whole of the $112,000,000 of voluntary taxation which will be rebated to the people of Canada and the United States if thc
tariil treaty is ratified. The treaty is a triumph for the Liberal Government which
will affect the well-being of every family in thc Dominion, and for which the Government deserves well.

The Optimist
sional mediums has been brought to
light by the discovery of the "Medi-
| urn's Dope Book." This important and
indeed unique book is not to be found
on Dr. Eliot's five foot slu If, nor does
its title appear in the libraries of the
lund cither under the M's or the D's.
Nevertheless, it is in the possession of
every faking medium in the country.
Not a cheap book by any means is the
dope book, yet few mediums can afford to do business without it. The
dope book is a sort of Who's Who of
the spiritualists of Canada and thc
United States. It contains their names
and addresses and as much information about them as can be obtained.
Here is a specimen pussuge printed in
j the Brooklyn Eagle:
"I'oughkee|)sie, N. Y. Jones, John, a
. Spiritualist. His mother Helen Willi ms Jones, died in 1903. She was u
member of the First Buplist church.
His brother Henry Jones, died the next
year. Henry was for years a cripple.
John is in the real estate business;
makes investments in New York City.
Gain his confidence by telling him how
his mother saved his life ut ihe time
his brother was crippled, when both
were children. Henry's spirit advises
John always in real estate traductions.'
Working the Vi.itor
It is very easy to understand how
' a travelling medium makes use of this
information. John Jones being a Spir
itualist, hearing that the newcomer is
in town, will probably call upon him.
i He is admitted by a servant who is
really a confederate of the medium.   It

Expected That Prince Rupert Will
Relieve Sinter Ship for Spell but in
Spring Will Join With Her in
Doubling Service.
Now that the Princo Rupert hus been
ilt'linitcly culled olf from the Honluulu
trip the chances are that she will lie
hack on the Prince Kupert run again
very shortly. In the opinion ot Mr.
McMaster, the G. T. P. steamship
agent, she will replace the I'rince George
for a short time, and later on will join
with her in giving the cily the same
twice ti week service that was enjoyed
last year. It is expected that with the
advent of the spring when the trade
conditions justify the scheme lhe twin
boats will each run to Uuiwrt once a
While no one Imagines that the company are instituting this excellent service
from philanthropic motive*, the maintenance of such ships ns the Primes
(ieorge and Rupert is a heavy item antl
not to be discharged with the shipment
of a cargo now and then. The service
is another example of the pioneer work
of Lhe west, which requires a heavy
outlay for a delayed but ultimately
generous return.

Overcoming Timidity
It is probably inevitable that children
should know more or less of fear. Perhaps it ia part of the training of nature
that by dread of certain things they
should learn to avoid perils. But it is
the parents' serious duty to foresee and
to overcome all needless sources of fright
in the little ones. Otherwise they may
be so constantly oppressed by apprehensions as to impair their whole future
happiness and permanently injure their
nervous systems.
They should be constantly protected
from every needless cause of terror. It
has been a great wrong against childhood
to permit nurses to retail to the little ones
stories of ghosts and robbers and murders, and to send them to bed shaking
and cowering. This sort of thing ought
to be absolutely and forever forbidden
and guarded against in every home, aa it
is laying the foundations of timidity
and nervous dread that may last throughout life.
It is best to begin to reason with
children very earnestly in regard to the
general perils of life; to explain natural
phenomena such as lightning, or darkness, or unusual sounds. If found
necessary, in the case of a very timid
child, let it have a light in the room all
night. A frightened child should never
bc punished by being left alone, nor
should it be scolded for its weakness,
but it should be reasoned with, shown
the folly of its fears, and kept from
influences that terrify it.

Victoria, Jan. 28 -It is not expected
that   the  Cottage   City   which  went
ashore on Thursday at Cape Mudge can
I be  salved.    Her  hull  is  broken apart
i amidships.   She tug Snohomish left the
j scene of the wreck yesterday afternoon
I with a number of the crew and passen-
I gers.     The   steamer   Salvor   arrived
| about 3.1!) p.m.
The experts do not think there is any
hope or use of trying to save the vessel, j
2 p.m.    (Hy  Dominion  Government
Wireless)-Cape Lasto reports that the I
City was sunk near Wrangcll, Alaska,
but she is wood-built, and was raised
and floated again successfully.
Twice during thu past two years she
was disabled by the loss of her propellor,
and curiously enough this happened
each time almost at the same spot in
Filzhugh Sound.
When the mishap occuj/ed last fall
the Cottage City was towed into Bella
Bella by the Humboldt. This good
Samaritan stunt on the part of one
American steamer toward) another in
British waters resulted in both steamers
being fined $400 each. Only under tot-
Ceptionally urgent necessity is an American boat allowed to help another Hying

A Popular Boat
Mr. J. H. Rogers, agent for tho
Pacific Coast Steamship company, to
which the Cottage City belongs is sorry
to hear of the wreck.

the passengers and crew were taken to
Seattle yesterday by the steamer Snohomish.
The 111 Fated Veaael
Built in New York in 1882, the steamer Cottage City was one of the most
popular old  timer steamboat-s on  the
North Pacific coast.    She came round
here  in   1892,  and  waa  a  busy  boat

by Captain Janaen since she cume to

��� best  known  antl experienced captains
sailing these waters.
Punier R. C. Jones is also an olrl timer
and well known on thc coast.   He has

H. F. McRae a Convert
Mr. H. F. McRae had always considered himself an ultra-radical. He saw,
however, that it was necessary to cooperate with one party or another. He
decided to throw in his lot with the
Liberals because they were going his
way onlv he was going further.
The popularity of Aid. Pattullo was
evidenced by the great reception accorded him. Speaking of Liberalism
he saitl he had always liked the word.
He noticed also that the Conservatives
liked it so much that they had prefixed
it to the name of their own political
creed and called themselves Liberal
Conservatives.    (Laughter).
Ex-Aid. Harrow regarded the {political parties as the "ins" and "outs".
However he thought that if he submitted himself to a course of lectures by
Mr. Cowper they might manage to convert him easily. (Laughter and applause).
Mr. Montgomery, Mr. Naden, Mr.
Lynch nnd Dr. Kergin all briefly addressed the meeting.
The meeting broke up near midnight
