A Politic Move
Although there has not been a single
case  of   disorder   reported   during  the
doors and oul into the ttreet last night,
declared their intention of maintaining
to the end the splendid self-discipline
and law-abiding conduct that haa marked
the present strike.
Prnised Their Conduct
The pledge came at the close of a
short address by Mr. J. S. Cowper, in
which he paid tribute to them (or their
exemplary conduct during the dispute
with the council and the eoiitr;.ctors.
"1 do this," continued the speaker,
"because, for ycur own good name and
welfare I am anxious that you maintain
that standard of respect lor law and
order. Hy your conduit you have

of this strike."
Some Timely Advice
"1 mention this because it is probable
that you soon will learn thai our authorities, many of whom you helped
to elect under -.he belief that they wen-
friends nf yours, have sought to have
the naval and mili'.ary authorities' send

and that rims and disorders were likely

Prince Rupert, "but 1 pledge myself
I'll be back hy January 1st if I have

The "Three Criminals"
It was stated that the "throe criminals

the preservation of the peace in Prince Rupert. That our streets may not hc stained with the blood
of innocent men who have no quarrel with each other, and that the name and honor of Prince Rupert may not be humbled in the eyes of civilized people it is necessary that the public be put in possession of the fact that steps may be taken to prevent Irreparable damage being done.
The information is that the City Council have sent for H.M.C.S. Rainbow and a detachment
of Militia to quell the imaginery riote and disorders with which it ia repreaented thia city ia, or
about to be inflicted.
Fortunately the whole proceedings though arrived at at a aecret session of the Council have
come to light.   The inevitable bloodshed which such a course would prcciptate will not take place.
The men at their meeting last night pledged themselves to the maintenance of order after
being informed of the Council's action. They took the view that the Council's action might have
been prompted by a desire to irritate them to a point where they would cease from their present
admirable, peaceable, law-abiding and entirely praiseworthy conduct of the strike.
The men will continue to spend their time snagging herring at the wharf, digging for clams
at Lighthouse Point, sparring matches at their Hall and in the other innocent and peaceable ways in
which they have passed away the time for the last two weeks. They will continue to show the
citizens that they are as good citizens as any in this city.
At the time of writing it looks as if Canada's Navy is not to be sent to intimidate the workingmen of Prince Rupert in their dispute over the election pledges of the Council.    It is not so
certain that troops will not be sent. ... ,

He Blamea the Mothers
"Who keeps the infectious diseases
going?" asks H. W. Hill, of the Minnesota state board of health, in an article in the current number of Journal
of Home Economics. The answer follows quickly. It is not the germ-laden
air, not impure water, not even the
public drinking cup, but mother. It
will be hard on mother to tell her that
baby did not "catch" the whooping
cough from brother, but thai she herself gave it to the little one, and harder
still to accuse her of being the cause
of all children's ailments, especially
as she usually sufTers more during
a sickness than the patients themselves.
The author does admit, it is true,
that the spread of infectious disease
by mothers is a fault of the head, not
the heart, and that there is much
excuse for them in a state of society
which requires one woman to do for
her children "individually and alone
that which three women could hardly
do well working together"; for which
small favor the mother should be
properly grateful, though the larger
hurt still rankles.
The specific cause of all infection,
of course, is the transfer of bacteria
from a sick person to a well one, and
"however the germs leave the sick person, they, practically speaking, never
produce another case of the disease,
unless a well person gets these discharges
into his or her mouth. The mother
kisses her baby, or tries the nipple of
the nursing bottle to see if it draws
well or if the milk is warm enough by-
first sucking the nipple herself, and of
course her mouth discharges go into
the baby's mouth. She feeds the baby
with a spoon, and tries the temperature
of the spoon and its contents in her own
mouth first, or she laughs and talks
into the baby's face, cuddling and
playing with it. The fine spray from
her mouth, thrown out in explosive
outrush of air during speech, as it ia
not during quiet breathing, flies over
the baby's face, into its mouth, eyes
and nose, and the baby's into hers.
Not until women understand bacteriology will they stop the practices that
lead to the transfer of germs. Dr. Hill
argues. Only by such study can they
be made to realize that to kiss a baby
is as wicked, from the point of view
of hygiene, as to suck a 5-cent piece.
The hatred of visible din ���fairly common among women���which is, says the
doctor, probably part of the feminine
desire for adornment, must give place
to a tolerance of harmless mud and a
hatred of invisible germs.
smile at the ignorance of the people who
were shocked at the sight of the first
umbrella used in the London streets, and
at the women who, we are told, went
into convulsions the first time they
saw a man in a top hat.
HOMELY   RECIPES
Doughnuts
A reliable recipe calls for one egg
beaten with a half cupful of sugar, a
quarter of a teaspoonful of salt, a half
teaspoonful of gTated nutmeg and cinnamon mixed, a half cupful of milk, one
cupful of flour, one heaping teaspoonful
of baking powder and enough more
flour to just roll out. Cut and fry in
deep, smoking hot fat.
Rice Pudding
For each quart of milk used allow
one tablespoonful of washed rice, two
tablespoonfuls of sugar imore if liked
quite sweet) one teaspoonful of butter
and a third of a teaspoonful of salt.
When all ingredients are in the baking
dish add a little grated nutmeg or a
teaspoonful of vannilla and place in a
slow oven. When a brown skin forms
over the top turn it under a couple
of times and then stir carefully without disturbing the top. Allow two
hours or more for the baking until
the rice is well swollen or about half
of the liquid absorbed or evaporated.
Then set aside and serve very cold.

NOTICES IN THE
OPTIMIST
Toronto, March 11.���A sensation
was sprung at today's meeting of the
city council by the production of an
affidavit made by Frederick T. Pike,
an experienced sea diver, who was
engaged a year ago for work on thc
waterworks intake pipe. Pike alleged
lhat a contractor named Leslie, who had
a contract to pump away the sand which
was encroaching on the mouth of the
intake, not only neglected to carry out
this work, but pumped the sand from
places most convenient to himself and
deposited it near the intake in such a
manner that a quantity of the sand
entered and choked the intake.
Pike asserts that several times he
reported Leslie's methods to Assistant
City Engineer Fellowes, but was informed that Leslie was in full charge
of the work. Pike claims that Engineer
Fellowes was personally aware of what
Leslie was doing. Pike states that he
continued to work until December,
when he was taken ill.
City Engineer Rust informed the
eouno-il that Pike had been discharged
for incompetency as a diver.
A prolonged and acrimonious discussion followed, in which Engineer Fellowes was disc harped for incompetency and neglect of duty, while the
engineering d part ment as a whole
came in for much hostile criticism.
A commission consisting of four experts���Isham Randolph*, of Chicago,
and ,1. G. Sing, T. Aird Murry and Willis
Chipman, of Toronto ���was appointed
to report upon the whole waterworks
problem. The b ard of control will
dcai with Pike's charges

Smith, who is a stupid looking youth,
yesterday pleaded guilty to the charge
of assault with intent to rob, and today
Magistrate Shaw could find no mitigating circumstances. In passing sentence his worship remarked that the
man who would commit the offence
of whieh he was found guilty, would
not hesitate at committing murder.

LONDON MARKET
FOR SALMON
SPRING SALMON WAS SOLD FOR
TWENTY CENTS A POUND
Trade Commissioner Urges Shippers
to Pay Particular Attention to the
Packing of it for the British
Market.
In the last Weekly Report issued
by the Department of Trade and Commerce at Ottawa, Mr. Hairison Wat-
s n, manager of the London City
trade branch of the High (Vnmiission-
er's oflice, touches in his regular budget
of commercial information, upon the
consignments, received there of British
Columbia srping salmon. The point
he makes is one in which those engaged
in the industry in this province will lie
interested and we therefore reproduce
his remark-*-.
"It may be recalled," he says, "that
considerable interest waa created in
the London fish trade last June by
the arrival of an experimental consignment of ten tons of British Columbia spring slamon. Owing to the
methods of pie king adopted, tie lish
was delivered on the market In exceptionally good condition, and was
disposed of at prices averaging about
twenty cents a pound.
"It was reported that in conse-
nuence of the success achieved B syndicate was to b ��� formed to establish
,i regular trad in t Ls class of lish.
Upon making enquiries wiih a view-
to ascertaining how matters have progressed since then, it is learned that
as fishing for this particular salmon
was practically finished by the time
the consignment was chared off in
London, it was decided to postpone
further operations until this season,
when it is understood that regular
shipments will be sent over.
"To show how much depends upon
the quality of the lish and the state
in which it is delivered, it might be
stated that a lot of ninety cases, which
was subsequently sent over from another sou ce in Biitish Columbia realized less satisfactory prices owing to
the salmon arriving in inferior condition. Although the flavor of tie
fish was good, the appearance was
dull, brown and unattractive, all of
which had a deteriorating effect upon
its sale."

Tacoma, Jarch 11.���Because of alleged rebating by the Nippon Yusen
Kaisha, which operates in connection
with thc Great Northern Railway,
the Blue Funnel line is ready to lake
action which may re-ult in a gigantic
rate war on the Pacific. News to this
effect was received here Satu day in
private advices from New York. According to the advices the rate war is
now in progress of organization and
will shake the affairs of the trans-
Pacific shipping bureau.
All the lines between the coast and
the Orient will be affected and the
rate on flour may bc depressed to $1
a ton. The rate is now $3. The Osaka Shosen Kaisha, which operates in
connection with the Milwaukee system, is unknown here, but it is believed
by the marine and shipping men that
it will meet any cut by thc Nippon
Yusen Kaisha.

Mr. D'Arcy Tate's Astounding Statements
Theamazini: iir.ervi v. which Mr. D'Arcj Tate hus given the Vancouver World,
and which i** reprinted in this issue of the Optimist, rather In.files words. No
more astounding itatemente have been recorded from the lipa of any man sent
on a responsible mission. It is to be hoped for his own reputation that a disclaimer
will be sent by Mr. Tate.
So far. no explanation or disclaimer has been forthcoming. The kindest
auppoeition under the circumstances is to trust that Mr. Tate was ill a-, the time
he gave the interview.
Steps are being -.aken to bring the matter to the notice of Sir \\ ilfrid Laurier.
Hon. George Graham, Minister of Railways, and Mr. Charles M. Hays. It would
not be I surprising thing if Mr. D'Arcy Tate were recalled from the negotiations.
The natural irritation which Mr. Tate's braggadoda and his insolent words
have arouaed a ill e heightened by the news thut he has gone to Victoria to consult
Premier afcBritk ab-ut the matter.
Premier McBride's espousal of that cor->oration's interests are *\e\\ known.
The citizens ma) well resent Mr. Tate's action in the matter.
Save the abaurd action of the city council In calling on the army and the navy
to come and occupy Prince Rupert, no greater injury has been done to Prince Rupert's dignity and welfare than this piece of bombast of Mr. Tate's before the
public of VancouNer. at the expense of Prince Rupert.

A man went into a local store to buy an axe, and being shown the article and
informed that the price was $1.25, he said, "Why I can get that from a mail order
house for ItOc." "Very well then," said the hardware man. "I will give it to you
for thc same price, provided that you will do the same with me as you would with
them." "All right." replied the customer, as he handed over a dollar bill and received back 10c in change. "Now." said the hardware man. "I want 35 cents more
to pay express chargts." which the purchaser gave him. "How much did your
axe cost you?" "One dollar and twenty-five cents," announced the purchaser.
"Very good, now give me rive cents for money order fees and postage." which the
purchaser had to hand over. ."One dollar and thirty cents. Not so.cheap after

In   the   course   of   his   sermon   last
night on the personality of the prophets
of the Old Testament, Rev. F. W. Kerr
spoke of the rarity in 'hese days of tlu-
virile type of man who is worthy of the
name   of   prophet.     Here   and   there,
however,   you   might   lind   one.     Inspector Archibald of the Toronto Police
Force had been referred to as a "Ne-
I hernial)."    Suppose Prince Rupert had
;i  man like  Micah  for  Police  Chief,"
said  Mr. Kerr.    "Suppose we had as
Chief of Police a man who would take
j orders  only   from  God?    Suppose  we
] had   a  prophet   on  the   Police   Force
I what  a tremendous reformation there

��� final responsibility rests with the people.
Supposing we had a man on the Police

earned a merited reputation for taste, individuality and promptness. During the last few weeks
several large shipments of high-grade papers have
been received by the Optimist Job to supply its
many customers. Several lines are included in the
lot that are new and quite the best on the market.
Our man will be along in a day or two, so you may
be able to judge of the excellence of the finish of
these papers. Herewith we reproduce some of our

&THE HOUSE OF THE  YEARS
(Priscilla  Leonard,  in  the  New  York
Outlook)
Life's room, in childhood, seems a boundless place,
Full of strange corners and adventurous
space;
Youth finds it wider yet, a home of
dreams
With shining casementa lit by rainbow-
gleams;
While ri|>er years bring firelight on the
hearth,
Content and welcome, love and work
and minh,
Until the walls draw nearer and more
near
And age beholds them, suddenly and
clear.
How small the room and how each
thing recalls
Some memory that breathes within the
walls���
Here joy stood smiling, garlanded with
flowers,
Here sorrow sate through long and
intimate hours;
The mirror's depths glimpse with a
shadowy host
That waver, melt, and in the dust arc
lost;
The fire burns low and quivers on the
floor���
Yet, as an unseen hand sets wide the
door,
Lo through its arch, as thc child, appears
The beckoning vision of immortal years.

(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, March 11.���There has
been open dissatisfaction expressed over
thc result of the interview whieh the
"Friends of the Indians" had with
Premier McBride over the Indians'
claim to lands.
Today in an interview appearing in
a local paper, Bishop Perrin of Victoria
is credited with saying he intends to
take thc cause of thc Indians to Downing
street officials. He says the Indians
in the north are starving and that the
claims of the natives are fair.

ONE OLD WARRIOR REFUSES
TO HEED THE MEN'S JEERS
With a Constable to Guard Him He is Shovelling Away
at Watson's Cut���Hasty Words Almost Led
to Blows���Gang Stopped at Mclnnes
and Kelly's Contract
For the iir.it time since the declaration
of the strike there haa been some friction
between the contractors and the strikers
on the cuts. Messrs. Mclnnis & Kelly
got a gang of eight men together, and
at eight a.m., an attempt waa made
to su.rt work in the em opposite thc
Central Hotel. One dumping cur was
filled with dirt, and the gang were
aliout to run it over to the dump when
a crowd of about sixty strikers who had
hurried to tie scene interfered and
prevented lie car from lieing n oved.
There was n verbal altercation for
a few momenta and the strikers Dually
settled the mutter by dumping .If car
on the grade. Mr. Mclnnis bin self
was on the job, but there was no violence
shown bini or any of his worktrs.
lhe strikers state that the men who
started work did not Understand that a
strike was on. They did not wish to
scab on their fellow-countrymen, and
stippcd work on the situation being
explained to them. Two of them joined
the P. R. I. A.
Messrs. Mclnnis & Ke'.ly appealed
for police protection for their workers,
but when Sergeant Phillipson arrived
thc (rouble was over, und the men had
stopped work. All three contractors
McMordie, Watson, and Mclnnis &
Kelly, have apprtachid the Police
Commissioners on the matter of Police
protection. Sergeant l'hillipson in his
capacity us Acting Chief Comtable
states that while he is ready to take
Instant action in the event of any
violente being shown, he does not think
thut anything is to be gained by the
dflunstratlon of force meantime.
On Messrs. S. H. Watson's cut beyond
the junction this morning another Kl ne
occurred more humorous than serious.
Mr. Watson hud expressed hiir.M-li
ready to stun up with uny men who
are willing to work at the ,'!7 \-2 cent
rate. Two or three men came forward
today, but under the criticism of the
strikers which wus expressed in unmistakable terms they all quit except
one stubborn old chap who stuck to
his spade unllinchingl.V under a strom
of comical comments and derision.   To
be called u scab didn't seim to worry
the grluled veteran in the slightest.
He shovelled uwuy as if he needed the
money, und wheeled his barrow loads
of dirt off to the dump unperturbed
by the remarks of the strikers thronging
around.
Standing guard over the solitary
worker was a stalwart member of the
city police force, armed with a gentle
persuader less innocent looking than
the toiler's shovel, and on the alert for
any sign of interference with the work.
One thing was strongly emphasised
U| o;-, the strikers, viz., thu they n.usi
not touch any tool in the hands of a man
working. The penalty for so doing is
a long term ol imprisonment.
At one moment this morning on
Watson's cut it looked like trouble.
The strikers gathered around the one
worker and the two contractors, und
the word "scab" passed. It roused the
ire of Harry Watson. A blow might
have been stiuck, but Constable Mansell
warned both the contractor und the
striker against violence, and A. Morse,
secretary of the P. R. I. A., advised
'the strikers lo come away dfrom the
cut. They tlid so quietly. Mr. Morse
continually emphasises the fact that
there is no desire whatever on the part
of the strikers to resort to violence,
though they will certainly tell any men
working at the old rale of wages what
they think of them.

This advertisement clipped from the
Boston Post gives tbe story of the
wonderful development now going on
in Canada. I.....,, out for British Columbia. The prolits to investors in
Town lots in all Grand Trunk Divisional
and Terminal Points will astound thc
world. Buy now. Ask Uncle Jerry
for price lists and full information.
LAST YEAR
RKAI. KSTATF. OWNERS IN
Western Canada
MADE
$100,000,000
From the most accurate figures obtainable, over One Hundred Million
Dollars was made by real estate owners in growing cities and towns of
Western Caiindn last year. This vast
wealth was exclusive of improvements
and represented actual increase in land
values alone.
Original records gathered bv the
Winnipeg Free Press prove that in
eight western Canadian Cities the value of land alone ���not counting improvements���increased 662 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 live, 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 certainty.
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 tbe 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
WATROUt, MELVILLE, WAINWHIGHT,
-   mtii,aii
The Grand Trunk Pacific offers in
these splendidly located, fast growing
Division Points and in the townsite of
Tolield an opportunity for the investor
to share in the large profits that are
bun- 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 docs not offer townsites or additions so located as
to make investments in them of oiles-
tii.iiiil.il* value. The object in selling
these lots nt the low prices at which
thev are offered is to encourage the upbuilding of these cities from which thc
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.

Are you doing your share towards telling your friends, the people back
home, aliout Prince Rupert and its
opportunities? Every one of us can
help build Prince Rupert up. Some of
us may put up buildings, others by advertising or publicity, others by bringing people here. You know one, two,
three or ten people back from where
you came who are looking for an opportunity. Prince Rupert offers that
opportunity. Tell them, write them
about our thriving city, the future
metropolis of Canada's Pacific shore ;
or if you are too busy and haven't time
to write them give me their names and
I shall send them some instructive
literature about Prince Rupert. My
book of Questions and Answers on
Prince Rupert tells the story and tells
the truth.   Think this over.
I know of some snaps in the residence districts of Prince Rupert. I can
bIbo put you wise to a good bargain in
business property. Or maybe you have
a snap or know of one yourself. In
any case see me and let's talk it over.
