Plead They Are Fearful of Legal Difficulties���Urge

the Workers
To the Mayor and City Council*
Gentlemen, -The Committee of
thc whole recommend thnt on account of the possible legal difficulties
arising the committee do not deem
it advisable to pass any resolution
through the Council dealing with
the wage scale as presented by the
Industrial Association. Your committee, however, are strongly impressed with thr unusual conditions
obtaining here, and that many of
thc city employees are not receiving
aufficient pay for work to enable
them to procure the real necessities
of life and recommend that immediate steps bc taken by members
of the various committees to bctteJ
the condition of these men.

city council to the demand of the Industrial Workers, thai Ihey fulfil their

(Special to the Optimist)
Toronto, Feb. 28. Thomas Kalclille

Cuniidu's official hangman died here
in his home on Sunday. Ra'cliffe
often boasted thut he hud hangel

Otlawa. Feb. 28. 'Special*���Mr. Martin's bill requiring all railway companies
to puy their employees semi-monthly
passed today.
THE COUNCIL SHOULD RESIGN
The situation which now confronts thc citizens is one that calls for plain-Bpeaking. In the six
weeks thc present Council have been in power they have failed to give any indication of ability.
They practically bought their way to office by issuing promissory notes of wage increases to the
workingmen: they have succeeded only in arousing the hostility of the workingmen, and in confront-
ing the citizens with the possibilities of a labor war.
If this calamity falls on our citv it will hurt many an innocent person. Granted even that it
mav be conducted with due regard for law and order, it will entail suffering on the workers, financial hardship on our tradespeople, bring dis.epute to our community, and by hindering development,
nut a tax on every man's interest in the city.
Fortunately the Council have not attempted any of the serious work of the city. Our Mayor
haa been 'tb-sent since his election. Nothing as yet has been done in regard to the waterworks-the
���mtest engineering and financial project that confronts the city. No injury has yet been done that
may not be averted by the handing over of the reins of office to a Council of business men who may
hnvp no baited pledges to fulfil, and no party patronage list to tuke care of.
There will be no hard feelings if the present Council were to resign. On the contrary It would
bring a general feeling of relief, a feeling in which, perhaps, many of the present occupants of office
would join.
(Special to lhe Opiimist)
Kingston, Feb. 27. Sixty passengers
had a very narrow escape frum death
in a nasty railwuy accident ut noon
today at the overhead bridge. A Grand
Trunk surbuhaii train collided at the
crossing with the Kingston & Pembroke
Express. A loaded passenger coach
w.i turned over on its side, but the
passengers tnamangi'd to get out safely.
Most of them were scratched and
shaken but no serious injuries or death
was reported.

(Special to lhe Opiimist)
Spokane,   Feb.   2N.   The   report   of
bttbonio    plague    infesting    this    place
is quite unfounded.    Medical experts
brought   here   by   the   authorities to
investigate  the  epidemic   declare   it is
not   Ihi!  plague  but   a  combination of
grip and pneumonia.

New York, Feb. 2H. Not the slight est

Mrs. Baldwin Drummond, formerly
Mrs.   Marshall   Field.   .Jr.,   of  Chicago,

tection in the English market 6,000 miles
away,.and it more than holds its own
there. It is surely not the same Mr.
Ellison, who, with tears in his eyes and
tears in his voice, tells a sympathetic-
legislature that the British Columbia
fruit industry is going to be ruined because it is to have no protection in a market at its very doors. Let me tell Mr.
Ellison that Canadian cheese and Canadian bacon have overcome all competition in the English market, and
Canadian fruit will do the same at
home or in England.  I Hear, hear).
"I have more confidence in the enterprise  of  the   British   Columbia   fruitgrowers than to suggest that they are
to be ruined if the   government of the
Dominion   of   Canada   in   its   wisdom
finds it necessary to make a reasonable
trade agreement with a view of securing a reduction of the high cost of living in this country.    Let me tell him
further, that the greatest competition
to British Columbia fruit in the north-
I west market  does not come from the
'United Statts, but from Ontario, and
| with a new market opened up in the
great border cities of the United States
! Ontaorio fruit will no longer be sold in
| Manitoba and  in the Northwest,  but
right at the very doors of this province,
across the border.
Is Responsible for Dear Food
"Mr. McBride, as leader of the government, is responsible more than any
other man, for the condition of affaire
in this province, a condition thai makes
I reciprocity so essential to this province
1 if thc outrageously high cost of living
| is  to  be  materially   reduced.     iHear,
; hear).
i
"I refuse to accept a suggestion of
disloyalty from n gentleman who has
never seriously applied himself lo prob-
i lems of government, who has permitted the lands in the province to be
held by speculators, who has thereby
retarded settlement, and thus prevented the production within the province of the natural products which are
so essential for human food, who is
thereby responsible for the outrageously
high cost of living. The man who can
reduce the cost of living to the laborer
, and the artisan, by twenty-live or fifty
, cents a day, is more the patriot than the
man who waves the old flag, suggests
disloyalty of his political opponents,
ana, while he is thus employed, allows
the public domain to fall into the hands
of the American land-grabbera. 'Applause).
"I have no patience with those who
are too lazy or too prejudiced to give
proper consideration to trade arrangements and who, in the absence of any
solid argument, are found waving the
old flag and impugning the loyalty of
those who are just as loyal as (hemselves.
A Hopeless Contradiction
He pointed out that when the old
reciprocity treaty was abrogated in
1.866, some foolish people believed that
the abrogation would force Canada into
annexation with the United States, and
one congressman went so far as to introduce a measure providing for the
annexation of Canada. When colonial
preference was abolished Canada was
to be forced into annexation. When
the reciprocity treaty was passed it
would lead to annexation, and when
the reciprocity treaty was abrogated it
would force annexation.   (Laughter).

Toronto, Feb. 27.���The challenge of

THE COUNCIL SHOULD RESIGN
The situation which now con fronts the citizens is one that calls for plain-speaking. In the six
weeks the present Council have been in power they have failed to give any indication of ability.
They practically bought their way to office by issuing promissory notes of wage increases to the
workingmen: they have succeeded only in arousing the hostility of the workingmen, and in confronting the citizens with the possibilities of a labor war.
If this calamity falls on our city it will hurt many an innocent person. Granted even that it
may be conducted with due regard for law and order, it will entail suffering on the workers, financial hardship on our tradespeople, bring disrepute to our community, and by hindering development,
put a tax on every man's interest in the city.
Fortunately the Council have not attempted any of the serious work of the city. Our Mayor
has been absent since his election. Nothing as yet has been done in regard to the waterworks-the
greatest engineering and financial project that confronts the city. No injury has yet been done that
may nol be averted by the handing over of the reins of office to a Council of business men who may
have no baited pledges to fulfil, and no party patronage list to take care of.
There will be no hard feelings if the present Council were to resign. On the contrary it woultl
bring a general feeling of relief, a feeling in which, perhaps, many of the present occupants of office
would join.

Social Notes
Mrs. F. G. Dawson left last week for
New Westminster where she will spend
a short time.
The Ladies Athletic Committee of
thc Kaien lsiand Club, entertained at
a "Sheet and Pillow Slip Dance" last
evening in the club rooms. An energetic committee composed of Mrs.
G. A. Sweet, Mrs. Arnold and Mrs.
C. B. Wark, made the arrangements
for this most enjyable dance, while
Mrs. P. W. Anderson and Mrs. F.
Stork were in charge of the refreshments.
There was a large attendance of the
members of the club and their friends
and dancing was kept up rill a late
hour. The Ladies Committee are to be
congratulated upon the success of the
many entertainments which they have
provided this sajoon.
Mr. Davis, nephew of Colonel Davis,
ciiy engineer, has arrived in the city
from Berlin, to join the staff of the
Bank of Commerce.
Mrs. Murphy, the talented authoress
of "Janey Canuck," who did much to
get the recent law for thc protection of
women in Alberta passed, is now working
to have a law passed which will enable
any married woman to file a caveat
against her husband's property, to the
extent of one-third. The lawyers of
Alberta believe that such a law will
protect the wife during the life of her
husband, and will not interfere with
the Torrens title. In this way, a wife
will have all the protection of a dower law, wiih the objectionable feature
of interference with the title eliminated.
S3.
They Want Better Laws
Several of the . omen's societies of
Manitoba are agitating for belter dower
and inheritance laws for the women
of that province.
They want a law to give a wife some
right in the property of her husband
during his life, and a claim to some part
of it, should he die first
Some concrete examples of the injustice suffered because of the lack of
proper legal protection for married
women will be given. One of these is
the case of a young couple, who went
on a homestead in Manitoba. Both had
a little money, and they put it in the
home and worked hard, until they
hatl a valuable farm and considerable
stock. A number of children were
born, and cvcrytb'iig seemed to bc
going well, when the man developed a
passion for gambling and drink. Soon
the wife received word that the farm
had been sold, the stock had been sold,
the grain had been sold, and she and
her children were homeless and penniless.
The husband had taken the money and
in company wilh a woman who frequented thc pool-room, he had crossed
into the United States.
There is no law in Manitoba to
protect that wife antl those children.
Another case of injustice is thai suffered by a woman in Winni|>cg. Husband und wife worked to make a home.
They bought a house ami partly paid
for it. The man thought he would
like to go back lo the old lund. He
sugKcslcd to his wife that they go
"home" for a trip. She aaid they
could not do so without selling their
home and starting all over again when
they came back, and as ihey have
small children she ditl not think this
wise. The man ap|M>aretl to agree, but
one day he disappeared and the wife
waa informed later that their place
was soid. The man had his visit and
offered Ji an excuse for his conduct
that it was "cheaper" to go alone. No
doubt it was, but his wife's earnings
had to go to satisfy his desires.
In Winnipeg there is a woman who
is making a living for herself and her
young family by washing and scrubbing. Her husband hatl invested considerable money in real estate, but
died without "a will, and although that
woman will be weal hy when her children come of age, she cannot touch a
cent of the money, now when she
imA* it. When her youngest child
Vttsm of age she can clllffl a third of
her husband's property, but she may
be worked to death Mora that time.
Character in thc Mouth
Large, shapely mouths signify breadth
of mind und toleration of others' peculiarities.
Thin lips denote covetousness, gK-ed,
selfishness, and, unless strongly contradicted by some other feature, intense
love of power.
The more curved und flexible the
lips thc more yielding the nature; the
more straight and firm the lips the
more severe the nature. Lips that
look as if they had been pressed into
a straight line show self repression,
nervousness and obstinacy.
A mouth to be perfect should be
large and shaply, thc corners straight
or very slightly inclined to stoop; lips
neither thick nor thin and firmly but
easily closed.

NGLISH JUDGE REBUKED
BY PREMIER ASQUITH
insation In British Public Life���Sir Wm. Grantham
May Be Asked to Resign for Raking Up Political
Episode In Addressing a Jury In Trial
OTdon. Feb. 24.-The rare spectacle
an English Judge being publicly re-
[,,(i by tin* Prime Minister for political
Hsanahlp was witnessed last week,
[justice Grantham was the offender.
n addressing the Grand Jury at the
Lrpool Assi7.es he reverted to charges
partiality in an election pr 'ion
had been made ugainst 1. .. in
rHou<e of Commons us long ago us
thereby signally violating, in the
ds of Mr. Asquith, the obligation
thi* Bench to abstain from criticism
he proceeding"* ol Parliament.
t is over forty years since juris-
;ion in election petitions was trans-
ed to the Judges. Chief Justice
ikburn protested against the placing
judicial shoulders of work so closely
ed lo party polities; but. his pre-
iion that sooner or later distrust
judicial decisions would ensue has
proved   correct,   even   suspicions
ha; kind being extremely rare.
)n every han I it is admitted that
William Grantham made a mis-
e in reopening the question. The
amative London Times points out
t Justice Grantham fails to recog-
i ilu* traditions, according to which
go do nol contradict charges made
IsS them. This attitude of silent
lain, it says, is a protection to the
li-h, ami this protection is lost or
ikfiml it some Judges step down

Ir adversaries.

���"������������oe 178, Prince Rupert, B.C.
It" is suggested that Justice Grantham
is still too youthful, after twenty-
five years of service, for thc humdrum
work of the Bench,- and, us Mr. Asquith
intimated, he was taking time to consider how best to deal with what was,
happily, a unique position���a stute-
ment which the whole House ol Commons received with cheers.
It is not impossible thut Sir Willium
Grantham's retirement from the Bench
may be requested. On the other hand,
the irremovability of Judges is one
of the most chirished safeguards of
British freedom. The Judge holds
his post "quam diu sc bene gess^rit."
(during good behavior), and it is one
of the few written enactments of the
British constitution that he can be removed only by the Crown on a petition from both Houses of Parliament.

something of the kind of men ihey have selected to represent then in that body.
The writer of the letter was present on a recent evening and he says the experience
was certainly an unpleasant surprise. There was a failure of the aldermen to
observe any known rules of debate or of parliamentary precedurc. . . . There
was u decided lack of official courtesy and dignity, ln comparison with the council
of last year, this council, hc thinks, is inlinitely the wor**e. . . . One alderman
made nine speeches on the same ilem of business, and each time he seemed to
be attempting to exceed his previous ellort in seeing how sour, sarcastic, and bitterly offensive he could clothe Ml thoughts.
No, gentle reader, this is not a photograph of the city council of Prince Rupert
It is a picture of the city council of Victoria, as portrayed by a letter writer in
the Victoria Times.
How glad it makes us nil led, to know that our council is not like the Victoria
council.

Notes and Comments
The WOrklllgmen of I'rince Rupert, and the citizen-* of Stewart are in a position
to sympathize with one another. Both of them pinned their faith to politicians'
promises.
The ipedal feature of tonight's evening Empire will NOT be a scathing denunciation of the Star Chamber system of civic government.   There's a reason.
It is to bc hoped that Alderman Clayton and Alderman Hilditch will continue
to attack one another's departments. The public learned more last night about
the cleciric light plant than il ever learned before.

was no discussion of the recommendation
whatever. It was adopted by the
council unanimously (that is, in the
absence of Mayor Manson and Alderman
Pattullo.)
The letter of advice from City Solicitor C. V. Bennett, was also read by
the city clerk.   It run's as follows:
Council's Legal Advice
E. A. Woods, Esq.,
City Clerk,
Dear Sir,���In reply to your request
(or advice regarding the wages to be
paid the laborers, and the fixing of
the same by the city council, it would
not appear from the power grunted
the municipal council by the municipal
Clauses Act that they have any right
to fix, by resolution or by-law the standard rate of wages for workers. This'
would not prevent them from paying
any sum thought reasonable to any
officer or workman in their employment.
In entering into contracts for work
on the city streets, the council has
agreed with the contractors that the
minimum wage shall be 37 1-2 cents
per hour, and should they now riise
the rate of wages to 45 cents per hour
it would be likely to materially interfere
with the rights of the contractors to
whom they have let the contracts.
It is a clear principle of law that if any
act of one of the parties, the performance
of a contract is rendered impossible,
then the other side may, if they choose
rescind the contract. Where the raising
of price in wages would not muke the
performance of a contract impossible,
still, reasoning by analogy to this
principle of law, it would have a damaging effect in that it might not only reduce the possible prolits of the contractors, but delay the work to an
unreasonable extent, and thus entitle
j contractors to un action of damages
against the city. 1 am of opinion
thai il would be unwise, at least until
the completion of the present contracts,
to so interfere with the wage scale as
to incur the possibility of the city becoming involved in a series of actions
for damages
Your obedient servant.

Read  The   Optimist
With the intention of ringing the
fertile fields of the Peace river district
to the notice of settlers and capital, Mr.
Lewis J, Rahy, a rancher at the Landing, is on his way to Seattle. He is sure
that with the advent of railways the
country is bound to expand wonderfully.
The Canadian Northern has graded to
Athabasca Landing, a hundred miles
north of Edmonton, and have surveyed
its right of way to Peace river and
Grand Prairie.
Mr. Ruby has travelled extensively
through the north, and few men know
the "Last Wtat" better than he. Last
summer he paddled tlown to the mouth
of the Mackenzie, the 20(10 mile return
trip taking four montlis.
He describes the climate as almost
equal to that of the southern valleys
of the province, and well adapted to
tin- growing of fruit, and the raising of
other farm products hardly thought
���iin-1-tent with its northern latitude.
Mr. Raby predicts a marvellous
future for the whole Peace river country, and is assured that just as soon
as its advantages of a rich soil, and a
climate surpassing that of almost every
part of thc prairies of the west, are
known, there will be a great exodus
to the cheap farming lands there.

FRIENDLY MESSAGES NO. 6
Wonderful how many have caught
the spirit of my messages and come
and talk things over. Why not you?
I have some choice property for sale
and for lease. I have no end of inclines for lots in the business section
ind for residences. Space prevents
elling all that I want and that my
-lients can use. If you have anything
better see me. Even if no business
results I'll bc glad to meet you. You
may be glad to meet me, too. Do you
want to sell that lot? Do you want to
lease that business property? Do you
want to raise some money on your
property? Right in my line. Let's
talk it over.

Victoria, Feb. 28.���In the House this
morning Hon. Mr. Bowser severely
scored the Vancouver World for what
he called its misrt presentations of the
facU in connection with the False
Creek agreement between the Government and the G. N. R. He declared
the editor of the orld was trying to
deceive the people and cover up an
improvident bargain.
Parker Williams said the Attorney-
General was evidently frightened by
the growing power of Mayor Taylor.
The railway compuny must come in
future lor privileges, in a position to
drive u better bargain than the municipality, so he saw nothing to boat
about. The bill passed its second
reading.
Hon. Mr. Dowser defended the companies' act in a moving bill containing
minor amendments. The Attorney-
General introduced an amendment to
the Municipal Clauses Act to allow
municipal council to pass by-laws to
put in sewerage or water-works, which
must afterwards be voted on like money
by-laws. The amendment also does
away with saloon licences in municipalities, though the change does not
take effect till January 15, 1II16.

In the G. T, P. Inn ut noon today,
Arclideucon Collison addri'Sft'd over a
hundrud members of the Prince Rupert
C.initdiun Club. His subject was the
e.irly days of his mit-sionury work in
this district, und the Queen Charlotte
I.-lantls. During nearly forty yean'
experience of work among the coast
Indians Arclideucon Collison has laid
in a store of deeply interesting impressions. He spoke of the progress
inadi' by the Indian tribes from their
piimitive condition towards civilization,
und made u strong appeal for the still
greater encouragement ol lhe natives.
Judge Young presided over the luncheon which wus u grcut success. Aldermun Smith proposed a vote of thanks
lo Archdeacon Collison und ex-Alder-
mun Nuden seconded. In replying,
Arclideucon Collison referred to old
days he spent in this very spot, lie
i. Id how of un evening he hud paddled
by the shore where the present Prince
Rupert wuterfront extends, on thc
lookout for deer long, long before a
cily here wus even dreamt of. It seimed
to him ils if a fairy city had sprung
by magic on the spot that once wus only
wild rough brush.

"What was it that caused the prodigal
son to go back home?" inquired the boy
who was studying his lesson.
"I duiino, exactly," replied Farmer
Corntossel; "but I have my suspicions
that he went up against a political
landslide somewhere."
Owing to a fog a steamer stopped in
the mouth of a river. An old lady
Inquired of the captain the cause of the
��� delay.
"Can't see up the river," replied the
officer.
"But, captain, I can see the stars
overhead," she argued.
"Yes," said the captain, gruflly, "but
until the boilers burst we ain't a-sgoin
that way."
He cleared Ihe sill at a bound antl
vanished in the darkness " related Romance, breathlessly.
"But," scoffed Realism, "only a
moment ago he was riveted to the spot.
Did he file lhe rivets?"
"Oh, no " rejoined Romance, nothing
daunted. "Fortunately, it was only a
small spot, so that by a superhuman
effort he wrenched it loo^e and carried
it along with him."
"My husband is like a rooster in one
respect."
"Indeed?"
"Yes. When he gets up early he
crows over it."

PROLONGED  CASE  ENDED
Charge of Misappropriation Against

Magistrate Carss has dismissed the
misappropriation charge laid al the
instance of Messrs. Lynch Brothers
against F. Nelson who was their delivery
man. The sum involved was a small
one, $5.75, but the hearing of thc case
occupied several days. Evidence was
given by the Messrs. Lynch, and two
of their clerks, Mr. Eckcrman and Mr.
McMeekin. Accused was defended by
W. E. Fisher, W. E. Williar.s prosecuted.
Besides arguing that the evidence wan
altogether insufficient to convict the
accused, Mr. Fisher pointed out that
It had not been proved throughout the
whole case that the offence churgt d
had taken place in Prince Rupert. This
technicality, however, was not taken
advantuge of. Magistrate Carss dismissing the case on its merits.

Stewart, Feb. ''8.��� The eilizens of
Stewart ure still after the Premier in
an attempt to get some satisfaction
for the incorporation throw down. The
Portland Canal Miner still persists in
coming out with the full page caption.
"STEWART CITIZENS DEMAND
RIGHT OF SELF GOVERNMENT."
This week, it also prints a letter from
Mr. T. J. Vaughiin-Rhys, one of the
delegation who interviewed Premier;
McBride on his visit to Prince Rupert.
Mr. VouRhan-Rhys says:
"When the question of incorporation
v\as broached, the honorable the prem-j
ier  distinctly   expressed   his   approval,
and gave us an unqualified promise of
I his support.    It  was  put   forward  to
I him that the new townsite might  not
j care to come into incorporation, and in
I the  face  of  that   the   premier  stated
'that there wus no reason why the old
' townsite should not be incorporate by
itself.    My memory  is perfectly clear
on this point and I have no doubt that
;the other  members  of  the  delegation
i are equally positive.
"In view of the above mentioned
promise the honorable the premier
must unquestionably have strong reasons for his present position, and 1
venture to say that these reasons
should have been given us As it is we
are quile in the dark us to why we
should have been allowed to incur some
expense and considerable amount of
hard work in the preparation nf the
proposed bill, which after all has been
so summarily dismissed.
"At the public meeting held at Hartley's hall on November 25th Mr. Manson
was given a unanimous mandate in
favor of incorporation. A linuiiriul
statement had lieen prepared showing
that the old townsite alone could easily
carry the burden of a ciiy government.
Yet in the face of all this, the question
of corporation for Stewart is dismissed
in the most cavalier manner, und until
proper reasons are given for the government's action we must naturally
feel some resentment against everyone
concerned."

Two large oil painitings showing

the paintings will be hung on the wall
of the Industrial Hall. One at present

of which the cily of Prince Rupert
