th,*  Prince   Rupert  tonight   the

delegates.    Their  mission  is  to
wi-li Mayor Taylor of Vancouver,
I is understood to have labor leanings,

{there wai no strike here.

■nvitch 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 thc
Prince Rupert arrived yesterday. Only
a few laborers landed, and no strle-
l.reukors. The men were on the wharf
with banners flying, but were very
orderly.
A little dispute between the longshoremen and the captain of the Rupert
got exaggerated into news of a longshoremen's strike yesterday afternoon.
The matter waa adjusted in about an
hour. The question was simply how
many men should Ik* employed in the
hold.   Wages did not enter into it at all.
AT LAST!   AT LAST!
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,
and is likely to leave by the
Prince Rupert tonight.

Ottawa, March 9.—By a vote of 112
against 70, the government voted down
Mr.   R.   L.   Borden's   motion   in   the
House of Commons today,  calling  for
the  postponement   of  the  vote on the
1 reciprocity  agreement  until  after  the
i general elections had  been held in the
| United  Stales.    The  vote  is  taken   a:*
a clear Indication of the intnticn ol the
House to (arry reciprocity.
Speukirij in support of his motim,
Mr. lioroen said it had evidently bun
decided at Washington to refer the
reciprocity pact to the new Congress*
Therefore, he argued, it was fitting
that Canada should refer the question
to a new Parliament. He suggest,d
that a census should he taken, the
Western provinces be given an increased    representation   on   the   basis
of their increased peculation, and Ut
the people of Canada pronounce < r. thc
question at the pells.
In reply Mr. Fielding told the Houte
that the honor of Canada was pledged
to the question, and Parliament must
ratify the arrangement made with the
United Sta.es government helire dissolution. Lloyd hi.nis of Brentford,
the third Liberal io oppose reciprocity,
spoke in support if Mr. Borden's
motion.

"Five Hundred" Lart Night
At the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. F.

party was held last night. Among

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 ctack 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.

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 nn hour. If the 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 workingmen should not spend
their eimings. 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 OCCBsic n
to poi it out the interfering nature of the aldeiman's suggestion.
ln regard to the council's policy of not allowing alien laborers to work for tie
city, the council it may be pointed out are on somewhat dangerous ground also.
Spokane has just had an experience which may make the local council sit up and
take notice. Their ordinance providing that no alien shall be el.gu&ed on civic
work while an American is available has just been made the subject of a judgment
of Judge Hinkle in the Superior Court, on habeas corpus proceedings, arising out
of the putting into fo^ce of the ordinance.
Judge Hinkle holds that the ordinance is in violation of the United States
constitution, of the treaties of the United States with foreign countries, and of
the constitution of the state of Washington.
The council hod better be careful, lest in thiir deisre to discriminate against
the foreign workers they land the city into more trouble.

The Bizzy-Izzy of English Politics
At last the people of England have wakened up to a knowledge of the great
man that Joe Martin is. Prom "John Bull" a |x>pul;.r and widely read British
paper, edited by Mr. Horatio Bottomley, M. P., we take the following verbal
bouquet which has been handed to our Joe:
"England is crying aloud for a Man. And yet we have him with us all
the time From a Vancouver paper just to hand, we learn that the re-election
of the 'Hon. J. Martin, for East Si. Pancras has given universal gratification,'
and that the peers will now 'take to tall timber' (i. e., take refuge up n tree)—
'.is they did last session, as soon as they discovered that Mr. Martin was
bent on their destruction.' It is added that prior to Mr. Muttin's (Itcon,
the peers assumed 'a defiant and supercilious attitude,' but lhat they are
now 'anxious and willing to reform.'   And nobody here knew why it was "
Notes and Comments
Every day Illustrate! the citizen's folly in choosing an absentee Mayor. Yesterday the Licensing Board had to adjourn because of Mayor Manson's absence.
From the "agony column" of the Vancouver World. "Dear Willie, come
home and all will he forgiven." Can it be by any chance be a message from Prince
Kupert?
is il a sign of the limes that Alderman Newton and Alderman Hilditch were
out at Seal Cove early in the week, looking for a graveyard site?

Orders to this effect were issued today,

concern among the Mexican ollicials.
Concurrent, with this an order has
gone out ordering the warships in lhe

"QUADRA" WILL
LAY MANY BUOYS
ONE WILL BE PLACED IN UNITED
STATES WATERS
Big Lighthouse of the First Order is
to Be Built at the Northweat Extremity of Graham Iaiand.
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. *** -^^Di
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 Jorkins 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 by the Lilloet, the position
of which was marked doubtful on the
charts prior to this. Sentinel rock will
also be lighted.

"There are a lot of girls who don't ever

"How do you know?"
"I've proposed to several."
"Do you find that it iB costing you
more to live than it used to?"
"No, not more to live; but more to
keep from being eclipsed by my foolish
neighbors."
"Gentlemen," said the lawyer for the
defence, in closing his eloquent and impassioned speech, "ujl I demand for my

The principal of the district school
was on the jury and the verdict was
Guilty—with a large G.
Minister—Johnny, do you know where

Johnny—Sure. Follow me an' I'll

Dear old Mrs. Toddles was indignant
when she read in an evening paper

IN NEW YORK
MAYOR   ICAYNOR    DOES    NOT
TAKE ALD. CLAYTON'S VIEW
Tells Police That Propagandi.t. Are
to be Allowed to Carry Red, Yellow,
Blue or Any Color Flaga—Saya 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 understand 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."     V*      ■
GAS ON THE  BRAINJ
Weird Effect of Kitselaa Tunnel Explosion Alleged by Drunk K J
White haired and with features worn
by a life's varied expereinces, 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 Kit -
selas," he said, "when five men were
k lied 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 be
interdicted from having liquor supplied
him for six months or a year.

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 Canada last year. This vast
wealth was exclusive of improvements
•nd represented actual increase in land
values alone.
Original records gathered by the
Winnipeg Free Press prove that in
eight western Canadian Cities thc value of land alone —not counting improvements—increased 562 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
THKY WILL UNtlOUIITEIlLY   MAKE   $100,-

these splendidly located, fast growing
Division Points and in the townsite of
Tofield an opportunity for the investor
to share in the large profits that are
sure to accrue as a result of the rapid
and substantial growth that characterizes Grand Trunk Pacific Division
Points and well located cities antl
towns in Western Canada.
The Grand Trunk Pacific does not offer townsites or additions so located as
to make investments in them of questionable value. The object in sidling
these lots at thc low prices at which
they arc offered is to encourage the upbuilding 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 io 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.
