Contractors Made Demand
three contractors involved wrote

Iday.    Thc   advice   of   the   city
_or was obtained, and a meeting
Idly  called   in  the   afternoon  to
i it.   The finding of that meeting

in the city was pressed on. Pro-
n should lxi given the contractors,

It is hoped the work will be done.
liTiiiin Clayton put this in the
ui a motion, and added that as
pntractora had been badly handi
capped they were entitled to a reasonable
extension of their lime limits.
Clayton Heara Voicea
Just then it seemed to Alderman
Clayton that someone in the City
Hall murmured "Scab." Instantly the
alderman appealed to thc chair to keep
order, saying "I refuse to be called a
scab at the council board "
"I didn't hear the word," said alderman Hilditch, and a voice from
behind cried "It wasn't from this eorner,
doctor "

Washington, March 14.���Thc real
reason for the mobilization of the

Before the city council last night was I
laid a letter from the Prince Rupert I
Industrial Association asking if it were
true that in the wire asking for the
Rainbow to come here, the council
had stated that the strike was led by
three criminals.
A lenghty discussion of this communication involving the whole Rainbow business, resulted in instructions
being given the City Clerk to draw-
up with the assistance of Alderman
Hilditch, a letter stating thai so far
as the members of thc council knew
no such reference had been made in the
Several l of the aldermen explained
that of course they did not know what
actually was said as they left that
in Acting Mayor Smith's hands after
instrut ting him to take steps in the
Thinka Smith Might Know
At considerable length Alderman Newton spoke against  the  announcements
in the Optimist that the Rainbow had
been sent  for  after  a  secret  meeting
I of the council in thc offices of Mean's,
Foley,   Welch  & Stewart.    He talked
about   "flaunting   articles   in   print,"
said he knew nothing about the mention
of  criminals,  and  did  not  think  any
member of council knew more, unless
it   were   Acting   Mayor   Smith.    Thc
secret meeting referred to hc said hail

who had stated'that if stiike-breakers.
were to come in by the Camosun or
other steamers hc was up against It.
He had nol force enough to handle a
disturbance,  and asked  that  red-coats
be requisitioned.
Wanted Rainbow Handy
Believing that the Rainbow was in
Northern waters the council decided to
wire to Mayor Manson with the request that she be asked to keep in
touch with thc wireless at Digby so
that in the event of serious trouble the
bluejackets could bc summoned to
aid the civic authorities.   It was agreed
said Alderman Newton, that no armed
men should be invited to our shores
lest the mob should become inflamed.
As for the idea lhat the Rainbow should
steam into this harbor with the intention of landing bluejackets to shoot
down the working men of the city, that
WM absurd.
Thinka He Waa Given Away
Alderman Newton said thai it wits very
unfair to himaell that he should have
been quoted as the councillor who
asked who was to bear the expense
of bringing in the navy. He felt certain
that the whole information regarding
thc secret meeting had been given
lo the Optimist by thc ex-Chief of
Police who, he said, wits disgruntled
at the council, and bad a grudge against
Where Are Telegrama.'
While saying that he was glad the
Rainbow had not actually lieen summoned to Prinee Rupert to shoot men
down, Alderman Pattullo wanted to
know exactly what instructions were
given to the Acting Mayor, why the
meeting was secret, and why the tele-

Krams sent were still kept secret.   Could
not a copy of these telegrams be found'.'
Alderman Hilditch who occupied the
mayoral chair for the evening declared
that if such a copy existed hc did not
know where to find it.
For the Men's Sake
Absent  himself from  what  he called
"this caucus" Alderman Morrissey ruth- i
er inclined to the opinion thai ii might \
be in the Interests *." ihe Prince Rupert
Industrial    Association    tn    have    the1.

influence.   In "ending for the navy the;

Here Alderman Hilditch hastened to
say that it was not a meeting of council'
at all, but simply a consultation with'
the   ex-Chief   of   Police   the   outcome
of  the  announcement   that   McMordie
was to bring up 100 strikebreakers.
"It seems," remarked Alderman Pattullo, "that the members nf council are
trying to shunt the blame on to ex-
Chlei McCarvell to get out of the
difficulty themselves."
Brave Boy, Clayton
At this Alderman Clayton came ill
with his view of it. He had btvii at
Ithe secret meeting. The only instruc-
| tions given by the council to 'he Acting
Mayro were as slated. For his own part.
Alderman Clayton said that he believed
there were men in this town who were
willing to work for the :I7 \-2 cent rate-
beCaUM they had wives and children
lo support and needed the money.
"I will have these men protected,!1
he thundered, "1 do not care if it takes
all the militia in Canada to do it, I
will have the militia here." This
declaration of opinion was received
with boos from tbe strikers present.
"1 am ready to stand by this," added
Alderman Clayton concluding.

A Talk About Play
The good that organised games for |
girls in the schools may do in bring-j
ing students into the fresh air and In
I'urnishin     wholesome   excitement   and j
variety  into  their  lives,  many  teach-j
ers    know    by    experience.     Outdoor
sports,  properly managed, furnish one
of the  best  correctives for the  fault.-*
peculiar to girls.
There can be too much, however, of
this as of other good things. Thought-
lul observers have disci vered that it
is a fallacy to believe that physical
exercise is a cure for mental weariness The man or woman whose brain
is tired needs rest just as much as
the person whose muscles are overstrained. It is true that before the
stage of weariness is reached, exercise is a help to study, just the case
rise is a help to study, but the case
is very well put by a woman physician who writes for the London Express. She says that "Girls as well as
boys, require moderate, regular exercise in the fresh air if they are to keep
in health. School game are excellent
so long as they are played judiciously,
and do not entail mental and physical
exhaustion. The great danger is that
school girls' athletics���by causing further fatigue when the girls are overtired with study, worn out with the
strain of concentrating their attention
on one lesson after another, from breakfast time until afternoon���do considerable damage.
"It is a medical fact that excessive
mental and physical strain means loss
of vitality. The hi. her the type of
girl the more she will try to accomplish mentully and physically what is
expected of her. When the brilliant
student suddenly breaks down for no
apparent reason, in nine cases out of
ten the real cause is over-athleticism
und over-pressure at school combined.
Any exercise that is to be beneficial
must be obtained regularly, without
excessive strain or fatigue.
"Like most good things, physical
culture can be overdone. Let girls
play games and enjoy physical exercise in the gymnasiums by all means,
but guard against anything in the
shape of excess."
pion of pork and beans. Hs says this
dish contains more of the ingredients
of nutritive food than any other, and
Ito meet the objection that pork is indigestible, he says it should be minced
fine,  until  il  disappears  in  the cook-
I ing, ir. which condition it is as easily
| digested as a piece of steak and of
much more value as a food.    In view
| of the high price of everything, if pork
and  beans  could  become  popularized,
! a good many housekeeping bills would
j be materially reduced.
The little childer in the street���
It's shipwrecked sure they are with cold,
There's some of them not eight years
And ne'er a boot upon their feet.
To beg a copper they go far
In rain and frost, in snow and sleet.
The little childer in the street���
You'd pity them the way they are.
There's other childher warmly clad
That live in houses in the Square,
They all have coppers and to spare,
The sight  of them  would  make  you
A nurse, be sure, is never far
To shield them from the rain and cold;
They're guarded like a bag of gold���
You'd envy them the way they are.
Now them that look so rich and grand
And them that shiver in the street���
I wonder will they ever meet
And walk together hand in hand.
I do be thinking when they're small
It's like they are as peas in pod;
Maybe they're like as that to God���
It's sure enough he made them all.

When  Buying  Fur
To those who wish to avail themselves
of the opportunity thus offered, an
expert recently gave good advice. First
of all, he said, do not choose white fur
unless you are a ravishing beauty and
a moneyed woman. The white is very-
trying to the skin, bringing out all
hard lines and showing by contrast
any little defects in the complexion or
features. For youth the soft white fur
is appropriate, if you have money to
keep it in a state of snowy cleanliness,
and if you are the possessor of another
tet fo.- morning wear or for stormy-
Of course you must not wear ermine
or fox with business suits or with storm
coats. And, above all you will not
wear white furs if there is any doubt
as to the whiteness of them.
Chinchilla is another expensive fur
from which th" women of limited
means should resolutely turn. It is
beautiful, and, being grey, combines
so well with any shade, that it is apt
to tempt the unthinking. But it is
perishable, and does not "make over"
with much success.
Cranberry Fritters
Cranberry muffins are a delicious and
novel variation for the daily menu; sift
together two cupfuls of flour, three
heaping tablespoonfuls of baking powder,
one-half cupful of sugar and one teaspoonful of salt. Beat two eggs and 1 1-2
cupfuls or sweet milk and stir into the
dry ingredients, then add two tablespoonfuls of melted butter and one cupful of halved berries. Bake twenty
minutes in a hot oven. They may also
be served with a sauce.

Now That the Sensational Boom is
Over, the Serious Work of Mining
Has Begun���Outlook is ��� Promising One.
Stewart, March 11.���The Portland
Canal Miner in its current issue says
in regard to the mining outlook at
"At the present moment there are
nine working mines in the Portland
Canal district, of which two resumed
work just recently, but before the summer season starts this number will be
increased to fully two dozen. Last
year the camp was the sensation of
the mining west and thousands passed
through Stewart, the gateway to the
mines, expecting to pick up a fortune
in a week. Scores of companies were
Hunted, and many went out of existence before the ink was hardly dry on
the stock certificates, ln brief, Stewart
experienced a touch of an old-time,
typical boom. Since then it has sobered
down to a straight, legitimate mining
proposition where only those properties
that can 'stand up' under investigation
receive consideration from thc mining
operator. When it is seen that out of
some two hundred prospects at least
two dozen will be represented this season in the development class, that the
Portland Canal mine is now practically
on a shipping basis, that the Red Cliff
mine found ils copper ore in the long
1400-foot tunnel, proving the continuity of the mineralization down lo 500
feet, and that three smaller properties
will ship ore this winter, the outlook is
promising indeed. With spring the
thoughts of the average investor in
British Columbia turn to the possibility
of mining stocks, and it looks as if the
various issues of Portland Canal companies, that have for weeks past been
stagnant, will once again come to the
front. This, too, is the period when
thc prospector and the mining operator
are out for the necessary money to resume development or to seek new fields
to conquer, and those who have stood
by Stewart, as well as the Stewartite
himself, will show their loyalty lo the
camp. With thc completion of a
railway as far as the Red t'lilf and Unbuilding of ii spur to the Portland Canal
mine concentrator plant, costs of mining wilt be inateriallly retluced and
transportation facilities afforded, and
as the government expenditure in road
and trail extensions will be a .substantial one the district should again be
thc mecca of the operator. Though
the ore bodies are nol as high-grade as
one was led to expect, yet thc camp
appears to have not only substantial
commercial values, but a diversity of
mineral contents that few others pos-
leai in this province. Based on whai
mi accomplished last year, the season
of lilll should prove a substantially
profitable one for investors in that

Fort George, March 11.--Survey parties will be despatched north soon to
locate the line of the British Columbia
and Alaska Railway between Fort
George and a point in Southeastern
Alaska. This was the announcement
made by Mr. L. M, Rice, C. E., of
Seattle, principal of the Vancouver and
Seattle, the engineering firm which
bust summer located the southern portion
of the route extending from Lytton to
Fort George. Mr. Rice stated that the
work will be considerably advanced
as his instructions are that the surveys
must bc completed as quickly its possible.
The railway compuny was incorporated by the Provincial legislature last year
and a Dominion charter is now being
s'.ugh at Ottawa owing to the international character of the project. The
men behind the enterprise are well-
known New York capitalists who havt
large interests in Alaska. Mr. Rice
explained that under the powers grin.ted
by the British Columbia legislature
the company also Secured authority to
build a branch line lo Vancouver from
some point on the Eraser above Lytton,
Thus far he had not received any in-
itructions to proceed with the survey
of that portion of the route. Mr. Rice
j is enthusiastic about the possibilities
of an all-rail route from Alaska to
Vancouver, owing to ihe vast region ll
will open up for settlement and development. The northern terminus
has not yet been selected.
Famous Scotch Soldier Who Wai Reported Dead by His Own Hand, in
Declared to be in Service of the
Chinese Army.
Snn Francisco, March IU.- According to news brouiilu lure by the Oriental
liner Asia, General Sir Hector Macdonald, formerly of the British army,
who was suppo^'d to have Committed
suicide in Paris in a lodging house in
lDO.'t, is engaged in drilling the troops
of the Chinese army.
Officer! of the Asia learned the
story, Ihey said, from officers of the
British cruiser Kent, now in Honolulu,
who got word of Sir Hector's whereabouts while on the China station
Sir Hector Macdonald WIS a famous
soldier who had seen service under
the British flag in many lands. At
the height of his career, he wa rr
called from India tO answer grave charges
He got as far as Paris, and then the
world was startled with the report
that he had committed suicide.
The charges, however, were Investigated, and the board a few months
after announced that they had not
been substantiated, and that a brave
man had been assassinated by scandal.
At various other times Sir Hector
has been reported seen in Australia,
Tibet, and Russia. These reports,
however, have never been verified.

A Study in Misrepresentation.
The front page of last night's Empire is an object lesson in the art of misrepresentation. It has two prominent articles.one on the strike situution.and the
other on Mr. D'Arcy Tale's interview at Vancouver. Both of then are flagrantly,
and wilfully misrepresent alive. The wilfullness of the misrepresentation is so
apparent, as to suggest '.lie purpose in each.
The article dealing with the strike has a headline referring to the strikers'
meeting, ll reads "Mr. J. S. Cowper Delivers a Speech of Inflammatory Nature."
Not a word of the speech is quoted. The Empire had no representative at the
meeting. The real purpose and nature of the speech is seen by the following resolution moved at the end of Mr. Cowper's speech "Resolved, That this meeting
of the Prince Rupert Industrial Association pledges itself, win or lose, to
continue to conduct the strike in an orderly and law-abiding manner."
The other piece of misrepresentation is of more importance because it is less
crude, and has more bearing on the future of the city. The article purports to
be a reprint from the Vancouver World of Mr. D'Arcy Tale's bombastic Interview.
This article is artfully cut in such a manner as to mislead the publie, while the
headline reads "His Remarks Guarded."
In thc lirst paragraph, where the original reference to Prince Rupert should
read, "a trail little cily dependent on the Grand Trunk," etc., it has been altered
to read "a city dependent," etc. The difference is obvious. The editor of the
Empire would have reason to resent lieing called "a frail little man," instead of
"a man."
The worst misrepresentation, however, is where the following insolent reference is entirely deleted from the Empire's report:
"If the matter cannot be adjusted, is there a possibility of the G. T. P.
���erminus being changed?" he (Mr. Tatet wus asked.
"Construction will be delayed until it is adjusted," was the reply.
This was the whole pith and kernel of the interview. To suppress this, und
then headline the article "His Remarks Guarded," is a wilful inversion of the
The citizens may well question what is the motive behind all this.
The Demand for H.M.C.S. Rainbow
The best commentary on the action of ihe city council in sending for H. M. C. S.
Rainbow to quell the riot in the excited brains of certain members of thc city
council, is that a dozen people at least have inquired of thc Optimist whether the
disclosures in yesterday's paper were true, or were they a gigantic houx at the
expense of the council. The suggestion was perhaps quite pardonable to those
who have no occasion to consider the serious consequences to a journal which
would ensue if the fucts on so serious a matter were not true as reported.
Fortunately the council has���though with great reluctance and with much
obvious shuffling and evasion���last night admitted the truth of thc accusation.
Indeed their shuffling and evasion was very eloquent on those pointa where they
did not make an open confession.
This was particularly noticeable about Chairman Hilditch, who at the outset
told ihe workingmen that he knew absolutely nothing about the mutter, and twenty-
minutes later to help out his collengues.mude u speech in which he admitted being
present at the secret meeting and taking part in the discussion about procuring
the services of Ihe war vessel for Prince Ru|iert.
On top of this, came the offer of the men���heaping coals of fire on the heads
of the men who met in stcrct and planned to have the Rainbow brought here to
overawe them to give a hundred men or more lo thi. city f ee of charge to act
ns special constables, und guarantee protection to any men who were willing to
go to work as strikebieakers.
It was the most effective reply that could have been made lo the men who
would have brought armed force onto the scene.
By exposing the attempts to bring in armed force, and thus by lhe pressure
of public opinion making such inflammatory measures impossible, the Optimist
hw gull'- a lung way to undo tho effect! of the council's burlesque treatment of
the strike, ind pave the way to un honest und peaceable settlement of the issue.

That the Alderman was Troubled
With Imaginations.
The new*, ol the council's request for the Rainbow has stirred the desire of
some of the local poets, to immortalize the event in verse. The following lines
were received by thc Optimist this morning.

When at last night's council meeting
a recommendation was brought in by
thc finance committee that Mr. E.
Bratt be appointed accountant to the
engineering department Alderman Clayton moved that the matter be laid on
thc table until after the enquiry into
the City Hall staff generally by the
committee appointed for this purpose.
The committee is only waiting for thc
return of Mayor Manson to go ahead.
As an amendment to Alderman Clayton's motion it was moved that the
report be adopted. This motion was
put to the council and Alderman Clayton said "No." He fancied he heard
an echo or something, and started to
his feet demanding that order be kept.
Alderman Hilditch looked about him
and pricked up his ears but heard
J. Carroll of thc P. R. I. A. ventured
the opinion that Alderman Clayton
was troubled with imaginations. This
was thc second time Alderman Clayton
had heard voices when there were none.
In this opinion Alderman Pattullo
was inclined to agree. He remarked
that Alderman Clayton had rather
touchily imputed quite wrong motives

thy is Acting Mayor in Vancouver
|Whcn Assessment in Under Dii-
���Hiaeion;    Who   Grades   the   Men
|tmploycd by the City.
On  what  business  did  the  Acting
yor proceed to  Vancouver leaving
riiy   without   an   official   head?"
������'I Alderman Pattullo at the council
��t night.
It sri>ms a very wrong thing to do
leave the city without a head, es-
dally ;it a time when the city council
inks the outlook is so serious that it
Hd i for the Kuinbow," he continued.
\ MCond nuestion asked by Alderman
tuillo wits;   "Hy what authority did
��� chairman of the streets committee
ve instructions that certain workmen
ployed in one class of labor should
paid ;ii the rate for a different classi-
Itlon?   Why should certain workmen
clataad   itn   sewermen   though   not
B 'ruriing sewers?   I understand that
' building ins|M'ctor and Chairman of
��� *iri*i*ts committee together fix the
m** '���( any man, and have arranged
'i all lhe men laboring for the city
nil in, claaaad as sewer men."
Iii reply to the first question Alder-
in lliltlitch stated that he understood
ting  Mayor  Smith's  business  down
���� was private.
" Ktinny thing," remarked Alderman
ttttlllo "that the G. T. P. assessment
���>uld be under discussion down there
"' now, too."
Aa fur the second question Alderman
Mitch when told by Alderman Pit-
Mo that the engineering department
Jj"'   furnished   certain   information   to
I1"!   remarked   that   the   engineering
ppartment like Alderman Pattullo had
���holelot yet to find out.
'^'s."   replied   Alderman   Pattullo,
I hW is so, nnd so has the public a whole
o lind out which it can't easily find
Pm tiwinu to secret meetings and so on."
Alderman Morrissey was in favor
of the extension of the time limits but
Alderman Newton said, "No, not if
the contractors are going to bring
law suits against the city."
Want Conditions Improved
Said Alderman Pattullo: "The carrying out of this motion means that the
boys are noing to lose the strike. Therefore 1 ask that we take steps at once
to see that the men working here get
some sort of improvement of their
Alderman Hilditi-li pointed out that
one contractor (Watson) should have
had his contract finished by the Tth inst.
"Then," said Alderman Newton, "if
he had had his work done he would
have been clear of this trouble now,
and not need to ask (or police protection."
The motion was then put to the council and carried.
Men Make Novel Offer
On this, J. Carroll, one of t he P. R. I. A.
men presort, asked leave lo s|>eak, and
made thc offer that the P. R. 1. A.
would undertake tie picket I ine of thc
jobs and would see that no violence
was offered the men who might want
to go to work at the old rate. He
remarked that this would save the
city from $60 to $70 per day besides
the cost of lumber for tending the jobs.
Alderman Newton highly commended
the plan. He said that it the P. R. I. A.
would picket the works as stated, they
would rise !I5 per cent in his estimation,
and thought that their suggestion should
be acted upon.
Offer Waa Turned Down
Alderman Clayton, however, did not
approve of its being acted upon at all.
The city was quite able to conduct its
own affairs without assistance from the
P. R. I. A.
To Alderman Kerr it did not seem
as if thc city needed to employ police
protection for the contracts, and Alderman Pattullo was of the same opinion.
Would Not Accept Pay
A brilliant idea conceived by Alderman Morrissey that the city should
engage as s|>ecial constables at wages,
only members of the P. R. I. A. was
quashed by P. Fisher of the P. R. I. A.
who in a word by permission, stated
that the rules of thc P. R. I. A. precluded
iU members from acting as policemen
for wages.
Liquor  By-law  to  Come  up  Again
Next Monday Night
Though opposed by Alderman Hilditch, the city council last night on the
motion of Alderman Newton decided
to defer the final ratification ot the new
liquor by-law until next Monday night
when Mayor Manson will ba home.

IN the production of the better class of Office
Stationery of every kind this department has
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
recent work, believing it will stand on  its merit.

Warns  His  Son   Against   Acquiring
Reputation as Humorist
There is a certain dignity of manners absolutely necessary to make even
the most valuable character either
respected or respect able.
Horse play, romping, frequent and
loud fits of laughter, jokes, waggery
and indiscriminate familiarity will sink
both merit and knowledge into a degree of contempt. They compose, ut
most, a merry fellow; and a merry fellow was never yet a respectable man
indiscriminate familiarity either offends your superiors, or else dubs you
their dependent and led captain. It
gives your inferiors just, but troublesome and improper claims of equality.
A joker is ntar to a buffoon, and either
of them is the least related to wit
Whoever is admitted, or sought for, in
company, upon any other account than
that of his merit and manners is never
respected there, but only made use of.
We will have such a one for he sings
prettily; we will invite such a one to a
ball, for he dances well; we will have
such a one to supper, for he is always
laughing and joking; we will have another, because he plays deep at all
games, or because he can drink a great
deal. These are vilifying distinctions,
mortifying preferences, and exclude all
ideas of esteem and regard. Whosoever is bad, as it is called, in company,
for the sake of any one thing singly, is
singly that thing, and will never be
considered in any other light, consequently never respected, let his merits
be what they may.���Chesterfield's Letters.

Suggests in Letter That Work on Contracts be Completed at Old Rates, and a Proper Inquiry be
Conducted in Meantime----No Action
March 1.1, 1911
To The Muyor nnd Council,
Prince Kupert, B. C.
Dear Sirs,���On my return trom a
trip south, I exceedingly regretted to
find the state of affairs that now confronts thc city in connection with the
lahor situation.
Frankly I believe that the situation
was aggravated by the action of the
council. Equally frankly I believe
that the action of the workers in going
on strike was ill-advised. However, the
situation is here and must be faced.
It is my opinion that the strikers
cannot hope to win the present strike,
in which event their status certainly
will not be improved by reason of the
action which they have deemed advisable to take. This would be extremel;
regrettable. I wish to suggest, therefore, as follows:
The city shall pay the same wage
as has heretofore existed, with a minimum wage of 37 1-2 cents an hour until
all contracts, already let by the city,
are completed; meantime a committee
of investigation should be appointed
who will thoroughly look into the
whole situation in an expert way, to
try and arrive at what is a fair remuneration for thc workers of Prince
Rupert, in relation to the workers of
other coast cities. When the contracts
are completed the new scale of wages
to be decided upon will go into effect.
The council should meet the Industrial Workers an.l advise them of this
course and urge upon them the desirability of acceding to it. At the same
time, if the Industrial Workers do not
see lit to accept the situation, they
should be (irmly informed that they
will not be permitted to interfere with
work carried on by contractors.
This course will protect the contractors; will show the good faith
of the city; and will be fair to the
workmen, as they may be assured of
a higher scale at the end of a few months,
assuming that the present rute is, as
claimed, Inadequate.
The workers, by accepting this course,
will not only do a great service to the
city, but they themselves will be money
It was my opinion that the select
committee, appointed to consider the
wage scale, did not conduct an exhaustive or expert investigation, and, in
urging the appointment of a new committee, I need hardly say that 1 do so
with the most absolute and bona Ode
intention of a thorough and ox|>crt investigation, with a view to providing
adequate and proper remuneration for
the workers of Prince Rupert, in order
that ihey may live here in comfort and
happiness. It might be well that the
new committee should consist partly
of men outside of the council.
I have the honor to be,
Your obedient servant,
Why Put in Writing
When the above letter from Alderman
Pattullo was brought before the city
council last night in the regular order
of business there was some doubt about
what should be done ubout it. Why
not simply receive and file it? suggested
Alderman Morrisey. Alderman Hilditch
thought that Alderman Pattullo could
have done as well by stating the substance of his leiter in council.
"Perhapi so," said Alderman Pattullo,
"but this is a very important matter,
and therefore 1 preferred to reduce it
to writing so that there may not be any
misapprehension about it."
Clayton'a Opinion
"To me it looks like a bit of cheap
advertisement.'' suggested Alderman Clayton. "If the mailer is so very important, why did Alderman Pattullo
go away down to Vancouver when it
was being settled before?" To Alderman
Kerr it seemed that there were valuable
suggestions in (he letter, und hc moved
that it be held over for consideration
at next council meeting.
Council'a Handling a Burlesque
Remarking that the whole question
had now got beyond the |)eii-nut politics
stage, Alderman Pattullo said that the
labor   situation   was   one   whieh   the
people of Prime Rupeit must handle
properly. Up to the present time it
seemed to him that the handling of it
had been a bi of burlesque.
Burlesque was a word which did not
please Alderman Morrissey. He thought
Alderman Pattullo had used it unwisely.
The handling of the labor situation
in a cautious manner by the city council
he thought a wise policy. Already there
were women and children in the city
who might get nervous if there were any
suggestion of rioting on accoi nt of
the strike. The quiet way of handling
the mailer adopted by the council,
was, he thought, the best, and it ill
became any alderman to style it a
Someone Doesn't
Alderman Hilditch fancied that Alderman Pattullo did not quite understand the situation.
"I understand it quite well," retorted
Alderman Pattullo. "The trouble is
that others don't understand it."
Eventually on the motion of Alderman
Morrissey seconded by Alderman Newton Alderman Pattullo's letter was
recei ed and tiled.
Line Will Run From Fort George���
Work Will not Start Until the
Main Line of the Road is Completed.
Engineer Gunn, of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, last week completed his portion
of the survey of the railway line from
Fort George to Vancouver. The portion
of the line under his charge joined that
of the engineer working from Lytton
a short distance below Soda Creek. This
completes the survey for the complete
distance to Vancouver. According to a
statement of Vice-president Chamberlain work on ihe Vancouver branch will
not be commenced until the main line
of the railway is completed. It is believed by many, however, that trade
interests of the Pacific Coast have
brought lo the attention of the railway
directorate the loss of trade coast cities
will sulfa in being shut out from the
markets of the northern interior for
such a iieriod, and that the Vancouver
branch will be commenced early in the
I Pattullo that his letter on the strike
| question  might  be  referred  to  again.
| It was a mistake he thought, to have
had it filed.   Clearly the men had been
deceived   by  the   promises made them
that they would get 45 cents an hour.
This evoked from Alderman Clayton
the remark that the thought Alderman
Pattullo had a lot to learn yet, to which
Alderman Pattullo retorted that there
were others.
Could'nt Trust the Clerk
Alderman Hilditch thought it time
now  to  refer to the original subkect
of discussion,  the  letter  from  the  P.
R. I. A. about the reference to three
"criminal" strike leaders.    He declared
that  the term had  never to the best
| of his knowledge, been used at all, and
1 Alderman   Newton   agreed   with   him,
i moving that the City Clerk be instructed
! to write to the P. R. I. A. to this effect.
! On the suggestion  of Alderman   Mor-
i rissey   it   was   agreed   that   Alderman
Hilditch  should  help the  City  Clerk
concoct the letter.   Carried.
Wharfinger is Wanted, and Question
of Sewage Plans
Stewart, March 13.���At a meeting of
the Citizens' Association Executive Committee, held in the Chamber of Mines
building on Thursday evening, called
to discuss the advisability of having a
wharfinger at the dock, it was decided
that the committee meet the different
transfe compa ics in town and after
consultation with them to draw up some
from of agreement by which thc transfer
companies should pay thc wages of a
wharfinger, this agreement to bc submitted to a general meeting of the
Citizens' Association to bc held on the
24th of March. It was also decided
to write to thc Steamship companies
regularly entering this port and ascertain whether they would help defraying
the cost of keeping a wharfinger.
The next general meeting to be held
will be a most important one as several questions of vital importance to
every citizen will be brought up, including that of the city's sewerage
system, the plans of which have now
been received from the government,
and it is hoped that all who possibly
can will be present.

wonderful development now going on
in Canada. Look out for British Columbia. The profits to investors in
Town lots in all Grand Trunk Divisional

Western Canada
From thc 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 Canadian Cities the 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 live 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.

Don't buy real estate anywhere just

cheap. Buy real estate that is good,
that is, property which is in the path
