I Ottawa,   Fob,   88, -An   unexpected
solution declaring their political loyally to Great  Britain was made today
thr Houae of Commons.     It  was
tirunK on a surprised House, by the
embers of the French Nationalist
"flup, and received the endorsement
���! the whole House.
The reason for bringing the reso-
Hion, whieh surprised the government
tnd opposition  alike,   was   stated   by
li���r*. tlonk and Bourassa to be due
entirely to the declaration! made by
leading members of the opposition that
reciprocity with the United States
would result finally in annexation.
The French Nationalist group had
been freely charged wilh disloyalty to
Imperial sentiment of late, owing to
their stand on the navy i|Ue.stion, und
their well known support to nationalism.
Their sudden stand on the point raised
by the opponents of reeiproeity, quite
took the House by surprise.
Every member of the chamber voted
in favor of the declaration of loyally
to Great Hritain.

(Special to the Optimist!
Vancouver, Feb. 32. A sad tragedy
occurred late last night near the Ferry
wharf, whereby two brothers, Edward
and Thomas Pollock, both well known
and highly respected residents of North
Vancouver were horribly mangled by
B C. P. R. train, whieh instantly killed
them.
The   two   unfortunate   men,    were
hurrying to catch the ferry.   A C. P, R
train stood at a standstill on the crossing,
blocking up the way to the ferry.   Without  fear of  danger,  the men, stooped
under the buffers and were crawling
between the ears, when without warning
the train started up, sweeping them off
their feet, and hurling them under the
wheels.
Both bodies were terribly mangled,
the legs being cut off by the wheels
of the cars which passul over their
bodies. To add to the sorrow of the
event, both men leave wivea and families
There will be a full Inquiry into the
affair, as many complaint! are made
of the dangerous approach to the ferry
over the railway tracks, and the delays
caused by trains standing at the crossing.

Saya That the Action of His Col-

(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, Feb. '23. -A sensation was
caused here today in civic and liquor
citcleH by the announcement that Muyor
Taylor has sent in his resignation as
chuirman of the Board of License
Commissioners.
This action is the result of his fellow
commissioners accusing him yesterday
of using his influence to oppose a lest
case which the commission thought of
bringing to settle up some points in
alleged   infringements   of   the   Liquor
By-law.
As a justification for his action in
resigning, Mayor Taylor says that
the accusation of thj' commissioners is
an impeachment of his personal veracity,
for which he would not stand.

OLE STADHEIM WANTED
Hy lhe I'rince (ieorge yesterday there
arrived a girl about twenty years of
age in the company of a Comox avenue
landlady. (In the boat it became known
that the girl was going for the first
time to live in a house of ill-fame, and
Chief McCarvell who was travelling on
the Prince (ieorge, took steps as soon
ns he landed to prevent her from so
doing. He was assisted by others
interested in the work of moral reform
in the city.
Before she had been an hour in the
Comox avenue house the Chief had her
removed to one of the city hotels. The
girl teemed Indifferent to a great extent
at first, but later told her story. An
unhappy marriage is at the heart of
the trouble. After leaving her husband,
the girl worked for some time Bl cashier
at a Vancouver cafe. She has a brot her
and married sister residing in Vancouver
now, and is going to her sister's home.
Chief McCarvell has been in communication with her relatives to make the
arrangement. The girl's home is in
San Francisco, but she is a domiciled
Canadian.

WILL ASK BUSINESS MEN
TO STATE THEIR VIEWS
Industrial Workers Will Circulate Petition for Wage
Increase Among theTradesmen---Issue Strike
Warnings In Coast Cities���Compliment Aid. Newton and Kerr
2U
i7 H. S. Wallace Co. ^
Last night the members of the Prince
Rupert Industrial Association held a
special meeting to consdier what action
shall be taken by the P. R. I. A. pending
the announcement of the city council's
decision in regard to the 45 cent wage
rate. Members only, were admitted
to the hall which was packed to the doors.
It was at first thought that proceedings
should be private as far as the press
was concerned, but this idea was abandoned. The reporters were asked to
give an impartial account of proceedings.
English speaking members opened
the meeting which was presided over
by Mr. Fraser, and ample opportunity
was given to the non-English speaking
members to give their views. The
principal motion before the meeting
was to the effect that the Association
take no action pending thc decision
of the council. This was amended later
to thc effect that the Association take
no action either for or against a strike
until after Monday night. This motion
as amended was unanimously carried.
Meanwhile in order that the workers
may ascertain who are, and who are
not with them in their demand, a
petition is to be circulated at once
amongst the business men of the city
for the furtherance of the wage-increase.
The names of those who express themselves against the increase or who
refrain   from    committing   themselves
one way or the other will be noted by
the P. R. I. A. for future reference. In
charge of the petition is a committee
consisting of Messrs. - Fisher, Fraser,
Shaw, and Lubridgc.
Instructions have been issued to the
Secretary, by vote of the members,
that warnings be sent to the labor
organisations of Vancouver, Seattle,
and all the coast cities that workers
should keep out of Prince Rupert as
a strike is in prospect.
While that attitude of thc council
towards the question was sharply criticised, a motion commending the action
of Aldermen Newton and Kerr was
carried. There was one dissentient
voice. Thc owner, one of the "other
nationalities," did not hold with the
idea, or even the suspicion, of kowtowing to councillors. But the general
feeling was that these aldermen who
had stood out for a square deal should
be shown the appreciation of the workers.
Throughout the meeting an air of determined, but not hasty handling of
the strike idea prevailed.

West Union, 0��� Feb. 20.���Two new
features developed in the afternoon
session of the special grand jury investigating wholesale buying of votes
in Adams county. One was that of a
woman selling her son's vote and the
other concerned a voter who was bought
in three different ways.
Sells Son's Vote
The woman lives in Pebbles. She is
accused of having accepted $5 for her
son's franchise. Both mother and son
were indicted, but neither has been
arrested.
A farmer in Jacksonville precinct,
who came in today, surprised the jury
by his confession that he was bought
three times last election day. For his
promise to vote the straight Republican ticket, he said, he received $12.50;
on a contract to vote the straight
Democratic ticket he was paid $10, and
the price for agreeing to vote for a
certain Democratic candidate was $3.
Farmer Punished
He pleaded guilty when arraigned
and was disfranchised for five years
and fined $5 and costs and given six
months in the workhouse, with the
prison sentence suspended.
One hundred and six indictments
were returned today, which brings the
total up to 998. There are indications
that the number will reach 1,500, as
predicted by Special Prosecutor William
B. Stephenson.

Ladies Are Invited
The executive of tho Liberal Association in inviting ladies to attend the
great meeting in the Mclntyre Hall on
Friday night to discuss the reciprocity
issue, have showed their good sense.
The invitation is not intended in any
sense to be "a graceful compliment."
It is the outcome of a conviction that
all who arc subject to the country's
laws, have a perfect right to show an
interest in them. In this case the subject of reciprocal trade relations is so
bound up with matters of household
economy that it is of special interest
to women.

would result finally in annexation.
The French Nationalist group had
been freely charged with disloyalty to
Imperial sentiment of late, owing to
their stand on the navy question, and
their well known support to nationalism.
Their sudden stand on the point raised
by the opponents of reciprocity, quite
took the House by surprise.
Every member of the chamber voted
in favor of the declaration of loyalty
to Great Britain.

Vancouver, Feb. 32. A sad tragedy
occurred late last night near the Ferry
wharf, whereby two brothers, Edward
and Thomas Pollock, both well known
and highly respected residents of North
Vancouver were horribly mangled by
a C. P. R. train, which instantly killed
them.
The   two   unfortunate    men,    were
hurrying to catch the ferry.   A C. P. R
train stood at a standstill on the crossing,
blocking Up the way lo the ferry.   Without fear of danger, the men, stooped
under the buffers and were crawling
between the cars, when without warning
the train stalled up, sweeping them off
their feel, and hurling them under the
wheels.
Both bodies were terribly mangled,
the legs being cut off by th<�� wheels
of the cars which passed over their
bodies. To add to the sorrow of the
event, both men leave wiv< s and families
There will be a full inquiry into the
affair, as many complaints are made
of the dangerous approach to the ferry
over the railway tracks, and the delays
caused by trains standing at the crossing.

Optimist Information Bureau
P.O. BOX 1545
PRINCE RUPERT. B.C.
A Woman Editor in 1702
A woman published the first daily
newspaper in the world. It was called
the Courant, and made its lirst appearance in London on March 11,
1702. Before thut time the news had
been dlapenied weekly, or in a few-
cases of very progressive seditor, semi-
weekly.
It is said that it was issued by "E.
Mallet, against the Ditch at Fleet
Bridge." Behind that noncomittal "E"
was "Elizabeth." It was the imagination of a woman that first conceived the idea that man would want
to have the news every morning with
his breakfast, and put thc idea into
operation.
The Courant contained only two
columns, but they were devoted entirely to news. For centuries a single
copy of a bulletin had been posted on
the wnlls of the Royal Palace in China,
says Advertising and Selling, but thut
cannot be called a newspaper; and
there was once a sort of daily market report in Germany, but it lasted
only a few days.
The Courant's two columns were
printed only on one side of the sheet,
and contained such items as thc following:
"Here ia talk as if 900,000 pistols
were transmitted hither from France
for bribing some persons to favor the
designs of that crown."
There were no pictures or advertisements. The Courant lived several
years, nd since its appearance the
world has never been without a daily
newspaper. A copy���thc very first
issue, in fact���is preserved in the
British Museum. Elizabeth Mallet had
a style and a mind of her own, as is
apparent from the following paragraph
from that first issue:
"Thc Courant, as the title shows,
will be published daily, being designed
to give al! the material news as soon
as every post arrives, and is confined
to half the compass to save the public
at least half thc impertinences of ordinary newspnpers."
She also promises that the editor
will not "take upon himself to give
any documents or conjectures of his
own, but will relate only matter of
facts, supposing the other people to
\ have sense enough to make reflections
1 for themselves."
The Partition Playroom
In these days of half-houses, apartments and small quarters generally, thc
1 most indulgent mother cannot always
spare her little ones a room in which to
keep their toys and set up their dolly-
households. To all such the following
scheme -invented and operated by a
young German mother of three-is cordially recommended for imitation.
She allows her two small girls and
��� baby boy to keep their   belongings   in
j one corner of the big  general   sitting-
room,   secluding   this   nook   from   the
: vulgar gaze by means of a large, strong
, double screen.    One leaf of the screen
I is provided with a small, practical door,
I swinging on hinges and supplied with
knocker,   knob   and   bell;    the   other
leaf has set in it a small window which,
though   innocent   of   glass,   boasts   of
curtains   and   nn   easily   manipulated
shade.   The outside edges of each screen
leaf are furnished with two stout iron
hooks which, when the screen stands in
position,  fit  into corresponding screw-
eyes neatly, and carefully run into the
wainscoting.     These   hooks   and   eyes
keep the screen firmly upright so it may
safely withstand the going! in and out
of that delightful door, to say nothing
of  the  animated  gazing  through  the
fascinating window, and much knocking
and bell-pulling.
Inside this particular partitioned corner the doll's bedsteads, perambulators,
cook stove, bureau and tea-table find
ample accommodation; here on cold
and stormy days and on the long winter
evenings the little girls play contentedly
alone or with small visiting cronies.
Any amount of passing in and out of
this improvised cottage is allowed and
encouraged; the toys, however���always
excepting the dolls and their equipages
while being taken on walks abroad���
are strictly confined to thc interior;
also, the little girls are expected to keep
their small dwelling in apple-pie order.
When not in actual use the screen can
be stored in hall or closet where it folds
flat and takes up hardly any room.
OUR  DAILY  RECIPE
Nut Loaf
Four cups of sifted flour, four level
teaspoonfuls of baking powder, one
teaspoonful salt, one-half cup of sugar,
one cup nut meats chopped fine, two
cups sweet milk, and two eggs. Stir the
dry ingredients together, then add
beaten eggs and milk. Bake in moderate oven about forty-five minutes. This
makes two loaves. I find that this
bread is fine for the lunch box just
buttered, or lettuce with salad dressing
may be placed between two thin slices
for a change.
HOUSEHOLD  HINTS
When buttons are taken from an old
dress they should bc loosely strung on
a thread before being put into a button
box. This is a time saver and keeps
the buttons from getting lost or several
of the set from being used.
A delicious salad for cold fish is made
of ordinary white sauce to which a
couple of tablespoonfuls of cream have
been used with the milk and a herring,
boned and meshed fine added with o
little lemon sauce. This is. especiull
tasty with a rather coarse, white-meated
fish.
Mr. J. Beatty wishes to correct the
report current in town yesterday, that
Mrs. Beatty had returned to Prince
Rupert. It was Miss Mabel A. Beatty
of Toronto who arrived in town on a
visit to her brother. Mrs. Beatty is
still in Calgary.
Amateur Theatricals at Porcher
On February 17 n social and dance
was held at the home of Mr. H. S.
Gilbert, thirty-six being present. A
Farcical Comedy entitled "The Wrong
Flat" was presented and created much
amusement. The characters being extremely well enacted by thc following
ladies and gentlemen: Mr. G. V.
Johnson, Miss J. Tallander, Mr. D.
Fraser-Murray, Mrs. W. Warner, Mr.
W. Farthing, Miss Tallander, Mr. F.
Peterson.
Valentines had been prepared for
each one of the party and these when
handed round and read caused considerable fun. Dancing and games
were kept going till dawn, when the
happy settlers departed, carrying with
them pleasant memories of a happy
time. Thanks arc due for the hospitality
of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert.
We have boon appointed agents for

HON.   JAS.   DUFF   OF   ONTARIO
SEES DIRE ������������rSULTS
Is Quite Sure Th .. If Reciprocity
Carries thc "Las:.'.',. , ice of British
Rule in North /.-���erica Will B.*
Swept Away."
As an example of the kind of up-
peal that has been offered in certain
quarters by opponents of reciprocity,
we print the followii.g report from the
Toronto Globe of a speech delivered
to the Burlington Agricultural Society
by Hon. Jas. Duff, Minister of Agriculture for the Province.
Referring lo reciprocity. Hon. Mr.
Duff said: "When Canada's representatives went to Washington they should
have told the represent at ives of the
United States thnt their tariff against
Canada was, on an average, 48 per cent,
compared with Canada's tariff against
the United States of 27 per cent, und
that when they reduced their tariff
to that, the matter of reciprocity could
be discussed. The United Stutes
abrogated the former reciprocity treaty
as soon as another Government from
that which made it, came into power.
"Would they give a guarantee that
this agreement would not be abrogated? They would not. When th"
Dcmocratc came into power they would
stampede and break through the barrier
to their prosperity, and build up the
trade they enjoyed under B protective
tariff. Canada had always been treated
indecently by the United States. They
had harbored Fenians and some of
Canada's blood had been shed to quell
the border disturbances.
"Now, for B paltry cent or so on
cream, cheese and other products,
Canada would let the United States
creep in, until finally the barriers would
be broken down, and the Inst vestige
of British rule in America would be
swept away. Canada could not lower
the bars of nationalism without letting
the continental spirit creep in. and
thia should not bc allowed." ���

The Appeal to Patriotism
The report of a speech in condemnation of reciprocity by Hon. Jas. Duff,
Minister of Agriculture for Ontario a brief report of which we print on our news
columns today- is un example of the kind of argument which some of the cupboard-
love patriots are vainly urged in their efforts to arouse a hostile sentiment against
reciprocity. It has not even the excuse of being "just politics." It is nonsense
through and through.
A man must be sadly lacking in humor who in the name of patriotismwarns
his hearers that "if reciprocity carries, the last vestige of British rule on the North
American continent will be swept away." In the Hon. Mr. Duff's estimation
the patriotic feeling of the people of Canada will fall before a bombardment of
cheap food products. The very suggestion that Canada's loyalty to the Empire
is in any way related with financial considerations is an offensive and unpatriotic
one.
The attempt to make party capital out of the socalled "appeal to patriotism"
is an unworthy one, for a reciprocity treaty has been sought by both Conservative
and Liberal parties continuously since ever the Slates withdrew from thc reciprocity treaty of 1854. Sir John A. Macdonald had a standing offer of reciprocity
to the United States, and fought hard to secure reciprocity at Washington in 1871.
In a resolution moved in Parliament in 1878 he expressed the belief that the National Policy would eventually bring about reciprocity. Parliament was dissolved by Sir John in 1891 in order that his Government might secure from the
people a mandate to negotiate a reciprocity treaty with the United States.
In supporting the efforts for reciprocity Conservative electors are following
out the desires of thc great leaders of that party in Canada. Their belief In the.
patriotism of Canada was evidentally of a different kind to that of Hon. Mr. Duff.
As It Looks Over the Border
The comments of the newspapers of the United States on the reciprocity
agreement are instructive. There is very little effort to compare the advantages
obtained by each country, and no effort whatever to prove that the United States
have won a great diplomatic triumph, ln fact, one paper, the Detroit Journal,
says frankly:
"The opponents of the Administration already declare that Canada gets thc
better of the bragain, but what of it ? There never was a tariff Act or an international treaty that pleased everybody. Some interests and some individuals must
always suffer for the general good. If we are more liberal in striking off duties
it has been with a view to benefiting the large number of people in this country
rather than the few. or our neighbors across the border. It would have been to
our interest to act as we huve done if Canada had made no concession at all."
The Journal also dwells upon the importance of friendly relations with Canada,
and this line is taken by the Providence Journal. In other papers, thc New York
Evening Sun, the Springfield Republican, thc Detroit Free Press, the Cleveland
Plain Dealer, the Rochester Union and Advertiser, the subject is dealt with in
a broad and statesmanlike way. If there is a desire to overreach Canada, it is
singularly well concealed by the ncwspii|-ers as well as thc negotiators.

Without in anyway calling into <|Uestion Alderman Smith's statement that
he and Engineer Allison are not related, we would like to draw attention to the similarity of their epistolary styles.
On Monday Alderman Smith wrote a public letter saying that his action
in securing Allison's appointment would nol result in thc dismissal of any of the
permanent staff at the electric light plant. But before he wrote the lines Foreman
MoKensle had already been dismissed.
On Tuesday, Engineer Allison following his patron's example penned a
letter in which he denied that he had admitted "leaving the valve open all night"
at the city pump.   We made no such charge.   We said "without closing the release
valve."   In this case it is a distinction with a difference.

AMENDS THE NEW
INSURANCE BILL
WILL NOT TAKE EFFECT UNTIL
FIRST OF NEXT YEAR
Increased Tax on Fire Insurance
Would Upset the Fiscal Affairs of
These Municipalities Which Derive Revenue from Licenses.
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, Feb. 28.- Hon. Mr. Bowser
this afternoon moved an amendment
to his Fire Insurance Bill, providing
that it would not eome into force until
the first of January 1912. He gave as
his reason for the amendment that
there were a number of municipalities
which derive revenue from licensing
for Fire Insurance companies. These
had made their estimates for the present
year, and if the new Act resulted in
some of the companies leavini* the
province it would interfere with the
tiscul arrangements of these municipalities. He did not wish to dislocate
their finances.

The transfer books at the office of
the company have been closed to facilitate the tracing Of the spurious shares.
Shareholders of the company are already commencing to write to the directorate to know the true facts of the

MINING    MEN    OFF    UP    RIVER
Group    of    Claims    on    Nine-Mile
Mountain   Changes  Owners
After a short business trip to Vancouver  arranging  with  the   purchaser j
two  well-known  mining  men,   Messn,
Martin   and   Thompson,   are   now   on|
their way  to  Hazelton  in  connection1
with the marketing of a group of claims!
in that promising ndgfaborhood*.    TM
property  is situated on the  Nine-mile
Mountain.    Mr.   Martin,   a  miner  of
wide   experience,   has   spent   over   14
years in  the mining disiriets to    the
north, and four years in the Huzelton
district which  looks particularly good
to him.
Musical Treat Promised
On Thursday night at the dance in
the K. Of P. hall, Mr. Paulsen, a pupil
of Professor Kauffmann will give what
is described aa "the first real violin
solo in Prince Rupert."
The committee have now kept the
dances up for three months, and they
have grown in favor and interest all the
time. They had the first X'mas tree
dance, the first prize waltz, and the
first "hardtimes dance." More new
features are to be added. The eommitlec
deserves their success.

Baltimore, Feb. 20.���The American
makes  some  striking  remarks  on  the
| reciprocity agreement with Canada.   It
says:
"While  the  English   Unionists  harp
upon tho string of American cupidity
and domination, and while some English  newspapers warn  ('anada that  it
is  yielding  what   it   has  in  its entire
history fought against- the overshadowing of its destiny by its big neighbor���
the clear-headed Briton and the clearheaded   Canadian   both   see   that   the
general social and political advantages
gained would be immense.   There could
'��� virtually bc no war between the United
; States and England with such an agreement in force and  with  the resulting
; catholicity of capital in enterprise on
I either side of the line.    Canada might
1 even dispense with the building of its
I proposed warships against possible assault from  the  East,  as the United
States   would   have   an   intimacy   of
I interest in the destiny of Canada that
would  act  as powerfully  as does the
Monroe   Doctrine elsewhere  upon   the
Continent.
"England has all to gain by drawing
lighter the cords between ils principal
dependancy and the United Stales.
'The tie of sympathy wilh the mother
country of both peoples would be
greatly strengthened, and the United
States would  be regarded  by  Europe
1 as having pledges with Great Britain
| firmer than those of treaties. It is not
drawing the how too strong to add that
in the event of England becoming involved in war it might bc of vast service
to her to have free trade across the
border of Canada for the foodstuffs
she would need for the provisioning of
her armies nnd of her people at home.
It is inconceivable that any rational
! Englishman or Canadian should =mcll
I territorial  ambition  in  the reciprocity
! proposal.    It is also inconceivable that
j any rational American should not per-
! ceive  that   community   of  commercial
interest that would be established and
would act as a fresh expansion of the
United Stales   an expansion that would
not   violate  the  rights  or  offend  thc
j sensibilities of its neighbor, but, upon
I the other hand, would bring to Canada
j trade advantages and general material
I promotion.    The subject   will  not  be
downed;   the purpose of Mr. Taft will
not admit of defeat.

Worse still, a mighty chunk of rock
hurled by the explosion about five
hundred feet in thc air, came down
squarely on the Edge Building's roof.
Rending and crashing its way earthwards, it shattered shingles, rafters,
ceilings, flooring nnd everything in its
way. Only the last timber between
the building and the ground stopped it.
On thc upper floor of the building
within a foot or two of the missile's
track, Mr. Edge himself was seated
at supper when thc stone fell. By a
sheer chance hc esca|>cd instant death.
Below in lhe. front store his assistant
stood by th* stove not three feet from
the spot where the rock crashed onto
a pile of mouldings which it completely
pulverised. Both men take the matter
remarkably coolly, though merely to
look al the track of the rock is enough
to make a man feel queer at the thought
of being anywhere near it when it fell.
On thc upper Moor of the building a
pile a foot thick of stout millboard
which a rifle bullet could --carcely
penetrate effectively, was pierced like
tissue paper.
It is all a man can do merely to lift
the rock which did the damage. No one
is bothering about the lesser fragments
which broke windows, and split shingles
without coming through. But one
twenty pound stone pierced the roof of
an adjoining shack, and a second 250
pound mass just missed thc Edge store
by six inches, and buried itself harmlessly in the earth.
Today Alderman Clayton enquired
into the matter, and looked at lhe
damage done. It is said the shot was
fired on L*. Vuckwitch's section of
First avenue grading.
