there was no strike here.

the general approval of the P. R.
,  In tin* event of its not carrying.
Ik.iviich will throw up his contract.
M. Gurvitch started his men up yesterday at the 45 cent rate, but weather
prevents them working much today.
In such weather as this, the strikers
say in support of their demands, that
only fifteen days' work can be counted
on per month.
There was no excitement when the
Prince Rupert arrived yesterday. Only
a few laborers landed, and no strl e-
breakers. The men were on the wharf
with banners flying, but were very
orderly.
A little dispute between the longshoremen and the captain of the Kupert
got exaggerated into news of a longshoremen's strike yesterday afternoon.
The matter was adjusted in about an
hour. The question was simply how-
many men should be employed in tbe
hold.   Wages did not enter into it at all.
By wire from Victoria today,
Mayor Manson announces that it
is his intention to return to Prince
Rupert on Wednesday, the 15th
inst. Acting Mayor Smith may
relinquish his duties before the
return of the Mayor, as he has
| been summoned to Vancouver,
1 and is likely to leave by the
*   Prince Rupert tonight.

ADVT. DANCE
WENT MERRILY
BRIGHT SCENE LAST NIGHT  IN
McINTYRE HALL
Ingenious and Pretty Costumes Win
Handsome Awards. A. Mills aa
"The Bell Boy," and Miss Mny
Morrison as ' Tcpsy" Prizewinners.
To combine the ideas of an "Advertisement" and a "Hard Times Dance"
was the notion of the popular management at lhe Mclntyre Hall Wednesday
night dance, last night. Messrs. Rudneick and B. U. Brin, with the ull
important essistance of Gray's Orchestra, arranged thc evening's amusement, and the boys and girls rose to
the occasion with a will. Fully forty
couples attended, and many of the
fancy costumes were exceedingly ingenious.
There were advertisements for every
known commodity on sale in Prince
Rupert from coul to cough-dro-*, and
(he cleverness of the girls in fashioning
charmingly becoming frocks out of flour
sacks was most marked. Ccmic musks
disguised the handsome profiles of
the boys, and the gills toi-uiled their
pretty frees in Moi rish fashion till
the hour for unmasking.
Prizes of a gentleman's umbrella und
a lady's jewel casket were i Hired for
the most ingenious boy's and most
effective girl's costune. The��e were
awarded (o Miss May Morrison whose
fetching appearance as "Topsy". in a
cunning flour-sack frock which charmingly became her well merited distinction;
a> d to Mr. A. Mill who was literally
"(here with bells." His costume was
a marvel on ingenious electric wiring
by Blakely. Bells and push buttons
studded his manly form from head to
foot. His scarf pin was an elciliir
"diamond," his head gear a cluster
shade. It WM a clear rime of "Rings
on his fingers and hells on his toes."

This is a little section of the paper, which from day to day will be devoted
to subjects of special interest to women. Any and all of the ladies of Prince Rupert
are invited to contribute to its columns, and to take part in its discussions. Suggestions and criticisms are invited by the editor. The hope is expressed that "The
Cosy Csrner" will fill a social need.
"Five Hundred" Lait Night
At the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. F.
Robinson a pleasant "Five Hundred"
party was held bust night. Among
those present were Mr. and Mrs. McNab, Mr. and Mrs. Hudson, Mr. and
Mrs. Bleaur ck, Miss Morrison, H. W
Birch and others. The prizes were
won by Mr. McNab and Mrs. Hudson.
A  Wonder Box
Mothers, did you ever try making a
wonder box for your own family or for
someone else's family? If you have, I
am sure you will make a few every year.
These boxes are to be used only on
"rainy days" the mother being the
judge of when to open the box.
Having decided on the sort of box
and the decorations for it, the next thing
is to find suitable fillings for it. We
will suppose that you have a small
wooden box, like yeast is shipped in to
the grocer. We will cover it on the outside with plain wall paper, and letter
across it, in colored ink if possible,
"WONDER BOX." Next we will
begin filling the small boxes, and, as
they are filled, each one is numbered,
and a list is kept for the mother's use,
containing explanatory notes, so she
will know just what to give each one.
In a small box put a dime and printed
directions for peanut candy; in another,
put a lot of the red and a lot of the
yellow candies and a square of tissue
paper, with a five-pointed star outlined in dots; put a candy on each dot;
another may have a paper of pins and
a design on tissue paper with directions
to lay over a pincushion and stick the
pins in, almost touching; when all are
in, tear the paper off and leave the
design traced in bright pin heads. Fill
some of the boxes with candies, some
with nut meats, some with figs and
some with dates; in others put puzzles,
conundrums and new games to play;
then you must put just a note in some,
telling them to go to the attic or the
shed or the cellar; then see to it that
there is corn to pop or apples to eat or
nuts to ci ack in those places. Some of
the larger boxes may contain little glasses
of jelly, which are especially nice for unselfishness. Some of the boxes must
contain composition subjects all out-
those will be for "hard times," for composition time is about the hardest kind
of a time for a boy or girl. Some of the
boxes contain pretty pieces with patterns
for the doll dresses, or for quilts or sofa
cushions; others must have beads with
needles and designs for making the many
pretty things out of beads. A real big
box can contain a box of water-colors
which may be used by all. Other boxes
can contain games cut out of paper,
either pictures to piece together or the
alphabet with which many new games
can be playee.

I where outside the ballroom door, at
the.head or the foot of the stairway
or in the hall, having agreed with her
beforehand just where they are to
meet.
Before he fills his dance program
with other names he asks a dance or
two of the woman in his charge. He
also holds himself in readiness to accompany her to the supper room if he
sees that no one offers to serve as escort
in that capacity.

This ia a little section of the paper, which from day to day will be devoted
to subjects of special interest to women. Any and all of the ladies of Prince Rupert
are invited to contribute to its columns, and to take part in its discussions. Suggestions and criticisms are invited by the editor. The hope is expressed that "The
Cosy Corner" will fill a social need.
"Five Hundred" Lart Night
At the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. F.
Robinson a pleasant "Five Hundred"
party was held last night. Among
those present were Mr. and Mrs. McNab, Mr. and Mrs. Hudson, Mr. and
Mrs. Bleaur ck, Miss Morrison, H. W
Birch and others. The prizes were
won by Mr. McNab and Mrs. Hudson.
A  Wonder Box
Mothers, did you ever try making a
wonder box for your own family or for
someone else's family? If you have, I
am sure you will make a few every year.
These boxes are to be used only on
"rainy days" the mother being the
judge of when to open the box.
Having decided on the sort of box
and the decorations for it, the next thing
is to find suitable fillings for it. We
will suppose that you have a small
wooden box, like yeast is shipped in to
the grocer. We will cover it on the outside with plain wall paper, and letter
across it, in colored ink if possible,
"WONDER BOX." Next we will
begin filling the small boxes, and, as
they are filled, each one is numbered,
and a list is kept for the mother's use,
containing explanatory notes, so she
will know just what to give each one.
In a small box put a dime and printed
directions for peanut candy; in another,
put a lot of the red and a lot of the
yellow candies and a square of tissue
paper, with a five-pointed star outlined in dots; put a candy on each dot;
another may have a paper of pins and
a design on tissue paper with directions
to lay over a pincushion and stick the
pins in, almost touching; when all are
in, tear the paper off and leave the
design traced in bright pin heads. Fill
some of the boxes with candies, some
with nut meats, some with figs and
some with dates; in others put puzzles,
conundrums and new games to play;
then you must put just a note in some,
telling them to go to the attic or the
shed or the cellar; then see to it that
there is corn to pop or apples to eat or
nuts to ci ark in those places. Some of
the larger boxes may contain little glasses
of jelly, which are especially nice for unselfishness. Some of the boxes must
contain composition subjects all out-
those will be for "hard times," for composition time is about the hardest kind
of a time for a boy or girl. Some of the
boxes contain pretty pieces with patterns
for the doll dresses, or for quilts or sofa
cushions; others must have beads with
needles and designs for making the many
pretty things out of beads. A real big
box can contain a box of water-co'ors
which may be used by all. Other boxes
can contain games cut out of {paper,
either pictures to piece together or the
alphabet with which many new games
can be playee.

To Clean White Feathers
To clean white ostrich plumes move
them about in a lather of pure white
soap with a little ammonia in it, using
about a quart of water if the faethers
are large. Then press them from stem
to tip between the thumb and finger
and do the same in the same amount
of clear, hot water. Repeat in cold
water slightly blued. Hang them to
dry in a draft and shake them occasionally. Before they are entirely
dry shake them gently before the fire.
Comb carefully and curl any strands
that fall apart from the others with a
silver knife.

/. Good Thing to Know
Boiled rice dropped by tablespoonfuls
around fried chicken or meat ragout
makes a dainty border. But the rice
should not be pressed down into a
solid mass, as many cooks unthinkingly
do it. It is as important to lovers of
rice that it be light and fluffy as it is
that bread should be of such a quality.

The Council and The Workers
The Optimist has little desire to intrude upon the differences between the
council and the workers, save in those aspects of the dispute in which the public
in general is affected. The question of broken promises is largely a private
one between the workers and the council. In return for their 111 votes the council
agreed to grant the men 15 cents an hour. If thc promise has not been kept it is
a matter to be settled between the parties.
But there are some aspects of the private troubles between the workers
and the council which call for comment. Alderman Clayton has already got himself into hot water by his attempt to say how- the wt.rUiiigmi-n should not spend
their e imings. A rift between the workingmen and the aristocrat they selected
to be their representative was, of course, only to be looked for. There is r.o cccutk n
to poi it out the interfering nature of the nldeiman's suggestion.
In regard to the council's |*olicy of not allowing alien laborers to work for tl e
city, the council it may be pointed out arc on somewhat dangerous ground also.
Spokane has just had an experience which may make the local council sit up and
take notiee. Their ordinance providing that no alien shall be ei.gaged on civic
work while an American is available has just been made the subject of a judgment
of Judge Hiukle in the Superior Court, on habeas corpus proceedings, arising out
of the putting into fo-.ee of the ordinance.
Judge Hinkle holds that the ordinance is in violation of the United Slates
constitution, of the treaties of the United States with foreign countries, and of
the constitution of the state of Washington.
Thc council had better he careful, lest in thtir deisre to discriminate against
the foreign workers they land the city into more trouble.

Big Lighthouse of the First Order ia
to Be Built at the Northweat Extremity of Graham Island.
The Dominion government steamer
Quadra is to establish an aid to navigation in United States waters on
her trip north. In Portland Canal,
which follows the boundary, the Quadra will place four buoys in place and
one of these is to be laid off Eagle
point, at the mouth of Salmon river,
just over the boundary. _\_**w'__mm_.T_i
Two large beacons of the type used
in the long chain of lights to assist
navigation in the north were taken for
Connis island, and .lorkins point. Con-
nis island lies in Chatham Sound, between Green island, scene of the wreck
of the steamer Bristol with loss of five
lives and of the wreck of the barge
Quatsino, and the Pointer rocks.
Several other aids to navigation are
contemplated in northern waters, a
scheme having been laid out some
time ago to erect lighthouses and install beacons in Dixon entrance and
Brown passage to light the way from
the Pacific towards Prince Rupert. A
big lighthouse of the first order, similar to that at Triangle island, will be
placed at North Island, at the northwestern extreme of Graham island, as
a leading light for liners from seaward
making Dixon entrance, and beacons
will be placed on the East and West
Devils, low-lying pinnacles, and at
Rose spit. Another pinnacle, located
last season hy the Lilloet, the position
of which was marked doubtful on the
charts prior to this. Sentinel rock will
also be lighted.

INDIANS HAVE
GOOD TEACHER
REV. MR.  PIERCE TELLS OF HIS
WORK ON UPPER SKEENA
Practical Christianity Plainly Put ia
Doctrine of This Efficient Missionary. Amusing Incidents of Work
Among  Indian Tribes.
In the Methodist Church lust night
Rev. Mr. Pierce, mlaabnary for years
in the Upper Skeena district, lectured
on his experiences. Horn among the
Indians at Fort Rupert, taken from
there to Fort Simpson, and in his boyhood brought up in heathen Indian
superstition as a "dog-eater" Mr. Pierce
after his conversion to Christianity and
education at Victoria, has exercised a
great inlluence for good over the Indians.
His conversion dates from an early-
day in the missionary work here of
the Rev. Mr. Duncan. A slave woman
brought from Alaska was cruelly killed
and devoured by cannibals on the beach
under the very eyes of the missionary.
Seeing the Rev. Mr. Duncan shed tears
at the sight, the boy Pierce resolved to
J try and help stop such deeds.
Mr. Pierce' work among the Indians
lis eminently practical. He believes
in education, in industry, and the train-
1 ing of the tribes to make full use of the
; resources of their land both to belter
\ themselves with the linancial proceeds
I and to advance Christianity. |���
Example! of this he gave in the stute-
i ment  ihat  by the establishment of u
j Co-Oi>crative   Store   at   Hazelton   the
| tribes there had saved half the price
i of sugar, Hour, and similar goods for-
i merly  bought  from  the  Hudson  Bay
I Co.    The saw  mill  established  under
j Mr. Pierce's direction has earned prolits
amounting to $:io,0U0 solely for Indians
{sharing in its initial cost.    Essentially
practical is Rev. Mr. Pierce's Christianity.    "What is the use of having this
great Gospel," he says, "if thc man who
teaches it   does  not  do some damage
with it?" .   2k   ��,-' Ss
Amusing little incidents contributed
largely to the interest of Mr. Pierce's
talk. His advice to a Christian Scientist
from Chicago who refused to have
| fr zen toes treated, was "That may be
all right in Chicago, but up here among
these big mountains you need a lot of
common sense to get along." _, _\ _, __,
Puzzling questions are put to the
missionary by his flock at times. The
hardest Mr. Pierce was ever called u|x>n
to answer was "Whose were thc dogs
that licked the wounds ot Lazarus'.'"
Mr. Pierce baffled at thc time by the
question, took it to Toronto with him
and asked Rev. Drs. Carman and
Sutherland for the answer. "When
they heard the question they turned
white," he added. To this day it
remains unanswered in the Upper Skiena,
but the Indians are convinced thai the
dogs were kinder than Dives, which is
the main thing. "V
Describing the conditions uml r which
thc Indians Used to live up there, Mr.
Pierce declared that about forty families,
and thirty tlogs used to herd in one
hoime. It was lo enable the Indians
to build proper houses that the saw-mill
was lirst started by him. J'
Pretty pointed is this final shot of
Ihe Indian missionary's. "There is
no use," he says, "of a convert who has
nice clothes for Sunday, who comes
twice to church, and can sing a very
nice hymn, but who is idle for the n-at
of thc week."
On thc motion of Rev. Chas. Sing
Mr. Pierce WU heartily thankid for his
interesting lecture.
Among the passengers on the Prince
Rupert yesterday was "Charley Burgess" of the Royal Hotel, one of Prince
Rupert's most popular old timers.
Charley is setting the youngsters a
good example for he had brought back
his bride with him.

MAYOR   iGAYNOR    DOES    NOT
TAKE ALD. CLAYTON'S VIEW
Tells Police That Propagandista Are
to be Allowed to Carry Red, Yellow,
Blue or Any Color FUga��� Seya Intelligent People Do not Mind.
New York, March 6.���Political or
social propagandists of every stripe
are to have the right of free speech in
New York as long as Mayor Gaynor
holds sway. This declaration the Mayor
made today in a special message to the
aldermen. Explaining that he ordered
the methods of the police changed
radically, Gaynor said:
"I have particularly made the police
authorities understahd that those entertaining views on government or of
the social order which are different
from ours are not to be interfered with
or denied the right of free speech on that
ground. Propaganda by intellectual
persuasion or by any peaceable means
for a changed government or in economic
or social order is lawful and will not be
Interfered with, much less oppressed
by the police. That the flag of the
persons protesting may be red instead
of yellow, blue or green, does not annoy
or alarm intelligent people."     jj*      \%
CAS ON THE BRAINJ
Weird Effect of Kitselas Tunnel Explosion Alleged by Drunk __[_%
White haired and with features worn
by a life's varied expercinces, William
Myers in the police court this morning
admitted that he got��drunk yesterday.
His excuse was a strange one.
"I was in the small tunnel at Kitselas," he said, "when five men were
k Hed by the explosion there, and my
head is so full of gas now that the least
little drop of whisky affects it."
"Well," said Magistrate Carss, "that
should have been a warning to you
not to take whiskyjat all. You must
pay the usual fine, five dollars and costs.
Myers had no money. He was allowed a week's grace.
He is very deaf as^a result of the
disaster he came through and did not
want to go to prison in case he might
lose the chance of getting his claim for
compensation upon the contractors.
On the strong recommendation of Chief
McCarvell Myers consented to bc
interdicted from having liquor supplied
him for six months or a year.

for price lists and full information.
LAST YEAR
REAL ESTATE OWNERS IN
Western Canada
$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 Canada last year. This vast
wealth was exclusive of improvements
and represented actual increase in land
values alone.
Original records gathered by the
Winnipeg Free Press prove that in
eight western Canudian Cities the value of land alone ���not counting improve
ments���Increased 562 per cent, for the
last five years - an annual increase of
112 por cent, for each city during the
last five years. These figures indicate
that investments in live, growing cities
in Western Canada arc as safe and
euro 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 the 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
WATROl'.s, MELVILLE, WAIMVRIGHT,
RIGGAR
The Grand Trunk Pacific offers in
these splendidly located, fast growing
Division Points nnd in the townsite of
Tofiold an opportunity for the investor
to share in the large profits that are
sure In accrue as a result of tbe rapid
and substantial growth that characterizes Grand Trunk Pacific Division
Points antl well located cities antl
towiiB in Western Canada.
The Grand Trunk Pacific docs not offer townsitcs or additions so located as
to make investments in them of questionable value. The object in selling
these lots at the low prices at which
they are offered is to encourage the up-
buiiding of these cities from which the
Grand Trunk Pacific will derive vastly
more benefit thin 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 ami make your
selection while the prices are extremely low and the possibilities unlimited.
