Be it further resolved that the
members of Prince Rupert Industrial
Association refuse to accept any concessions from any employer with a discrimination against any workingman or
woman who toils for their daily bread,
simply because they may happen to be
born on a difTerent part of the globe to
our city fathers."
The resolution was carried unanimously.
I'mi.e for Pattullo
The action of Alderman Pattullo in
moving for a select committee to investigate the workers' claim was praised

promise, yet he was the only one who
showed himself willing to help us when
the moment came," said one represen-

Travelling Without Signal. Wai
Cause of Accident.
Melfort, Sask., Jan. 26.��� Seven men
were seriously injured as a n-sult of a
railway collision on thc line about
eleven miles east ol here yesterday.
An east bound passenger train ran into
thc caboose of a freight train. The
engine of the passenger tore its way
through the car of the freighter in which
the men were sleeping. The wreckage
caught fire but not before thc men
had been rescued from the death trap.
Travelling without signals was the
cause of the accident that might very
easily have ended in a terrible disaster
with a heavy loss of life. The matter
is being investigated, and the men on
the freighter are being held as witnesses.
Canada provided nothing contain- value to $21.1)81,000.
SIR "BILL" MACKENZIE
VICTIM OF A ROBBERY
Porter of His Private Car Stripped Two Bills From a
$6,000 Wad From Under Railway Magnate's
Pillow���Confessed His Crime���
Was Allowed to Go.
(Special to The Optimist)
Vancouver, Jan. 27-An interesting story of a robbery of which
Sir William Mackenzie, the railroad knight was the victim, has
just come to lijjcht. The porter
of his own private car waa lhe
person who filched him. The
story reminds one of the old saying of Carlyle that no man is a
hero to his own valet. Sir William had an appointment with
the minister of railways, but
slept late in the morning and rose
finally in a great hurry. Under
his pillow was a nice little wad
containing $0,000 in bills. In his
haste he did not put the bills
away but simply wrapped them
in his night shirt and trusted tacitly to his employees to guard it
for him till he returned. When
the porter came to make up the
room he found the roll. It looked good to him naturally, thinking lhat wh.it was gootl for the
master must he gootl for the man,
so he peeled off the two o iler
bills anil piit the rest away. When
Sir William returned he Quickly
learned that his wad had diminished in size antl value. He did
not make a noise, however. He
employed one of his own men to
investigate the matter and had
the satisfaction of running tlown
the thief at Windsor with the
bills still in his possession. On
being taxed with the robbery the
porter confessed his guilt. No
police action was instituted. He
was dismissed from Ihe service.

A Cause For Satisfaction
The news announced exclusively in the Optimist yesterday that arrange-
menu have been completed for the operation of a steel and iron industry in
Prince Rupert is the beat pleet of news thai has been given out In this city
since ever a printing press arrived. It is the best indication of I'rince Rupert's
industrial future that could be given. While none doubted that with tremendous ore and eoal deposits around us such an industry was inevitable, the news
that arrangements had been completed,  probably came to many with great
surprise.
The opening of the Iron and steel industry has a moro than ordinary bearing on the development of a district. Far beyond the ordinary value of manu-
facturintr Industries, it haa a value to the community at largo. It is not merely
an industry in itself, it is the parent industry of a thousand other industries,
which for economic reasons are forced to locate within easy access of the iron
and steel output In thi-', the age of machine production, this factor is of great
importance. Many large manufacturing cities in the east, such as Toronto
and Hamilton, already realise their handicap through an excess of light manufacturing industries, and the difficulty through distance from ore and coal supplies of installing heavy industries, To overcome this handicap, Toronto has
recently given great concessions to a smelting concern which proposes to bring
ore from the Moose Mountain district on tin- new James Bay line, using imported coal on which it needs must pay a duty .Vith ores showing 68 percent.
of metallic Iron and equal In qualityvto the finest Swedish ores, with coking
coals and limestone for fluxes in abundance, all capable of easy water shipment,
and the assurance that iron and stee' can be produced at Prince Rupert at a
price to compete with tin* products *>f the Cape Breton smelters, the coming of
such an industry must be a cause for great satisfaction. With such a patent
industry here, the coming of other manufacturing concerns is made inevitable.

HERRING FLEET

SEA CULLS HAVE A ROYAL TIME
GORMANDIZING
Fish so Densely Packed That They
Are Helpless -- Some Fishermen
Land Good Haul, for Trouble of
Picking Them UP.
Prince Rupert harbor has for several
days past been the scene of a terrible
bBttle between the birds of the air
and the fish of the sea. The herring
have come in to spawn and they are
so thick as almost to Impede the progress
of thc steamers entering or leaving the
port. Their density renders them a
comparatively easy prey for their natural
enemies, the seagulls, who flirt ahout the
air and dart upon their helpltss victims
with a callous precision that removes
all element of chance.
This morning at the expense of a
very little trouble, the trouble of hauling
them in as fast as they were able, one
or two fishermen landed boat loads
of them and at once set ahout having
them shipped south.

H. S. Wallace Co. f-
On Wednesday niuhl the lively debate at the Methodist church, on the
subject of "Government Ownership of
Publie Utilities," the question was
decided by a close ballot in favor of
the affirmative. Mr. Walter Shaw
set forth reasons for Government Ownership. He held that government as |
now constituted was class government
and government ownership under it
cannot he carried out in its more perfect
or ideal sense, imperfect government
must carry imperfection in its operation.
Private gfti'i on public utilities \iti-
aleil ihe principle that the value of a
thing lay in its adaptation to use and
to the greatest possible number.
Public ownership, or ownership by the
whole of what was useful to the whole
encouraged the best in men and reduced
the temptations of selfishness and
greed to a minimum.
Mr. Hamblin admitted that govern-
7? ment ownership might be right but
' I practically in many cases which he
~j rited where it had been tried, it was
/ j tound necesMry to go back to the method
���'���"��������� of operation ol public utilities by private
corporations.
Mr. Button read Mr. McKay's lirief
for the affirmative as the latter was
not  able to be present.    Mr.   McKay
~ held to the principle of government
jj  ownership,   though   he   acknowledged
'-��.'.  that it had its ,'elects citing the instance
locally of the electric light plant which
was bt Ing so slowly constructed.
Mr. Nelson closed the argument for
��� lie negative holding that the probable
effectiveness in the practical working
ii,' the Utility for the puhlic good ��ullld
In* In favor of the private company as
tlgains' the public Control.    Hi  favored
private corporations bound under the!
��� most careful restrict ions.

Made by Expert Specialists
In the 20th Century Brand eoat shops each garment passes through, liti
distinct operations, with expert specialists doing the work in each of these
2(i stages. Any of them ean do what he does much better than an all-
round coat maker who may be a fairly pood tailor hut who is not a specialist in uny particular branch of the art and science of coat making. The degree of perfection that these specialists arrive at through years of practice
and study in one small department of coat making is nothing short of amazing. Custom tailors who visit the 20th Century Bran 1 tailor shops (and
they are always welcome) never fail to express their astonishment at the
perfection of workmanship whieh this system of specialization produces. It
is the old story of "Jack-of-all-trades" being master of none and giving way
to the specialist in this and every other department of human endeavor.
