EYEWITNESSES SAY THAT HE LEH
LEAVING PASSENGERS TO PERISH
Told Them He Was Going Ashore for Assistance, But There Was Room in His Lifeboat
For All Who Were Left Behind���Public Opinion Aroused That the Officers
Escaped While the Women Drowned���Death Roll is Now Twenty-
Vancouver Board of Trade Demands Searching Inquiry
iSHIPPING REPORTS
From the Dominion Government  Wire
leee Stationo
Victoria, April 12.���Startling
suggestions of cowardice against
Captain Sears of the S. S. Iroqouis
were made at the inquest on the
bodies of the victims held in
Sydney last night. According to
the testimony of the witnesses
Captain Sears did not make his
escape to shore on a piece of
wreckage as at first reported.
He left the doomed vessel in
a lifeboat, leaving behind him
a number of persons three of
whom were later rescued by Indians, It was stated by witnesses
that the lifeboat could easily have
accommodated all those remaining
on the wreck. Severest criticism
is directed against Sears and the
most searching investigation of the
facts is being made by the authorities.
Hurried Ashore "For Help"
It was in the second lifeboat
to leave the vessel and first to
reach land that the Captain es-
Caped. Witnesses stated that he
shouted that he was going ashore
to get assistance, but there was
no need t.f more assistance than
he had already at hand for the
men who were left to their fate.
Hail the Indians not arrived three
more names would have been
added to the list of drowned.  The
statement that the lifeboat could
have stood by and saved other
lives, too, is made with confidence,
for it is almost certain that more
passengers have still to be accounted for.
Women Left to Perish
The fact  that the Captain was
the first to reach shore after the
disaster is commented on, and
people are asking indignantly how
it came about that so, many
women perished while the Captain
and officers of the Iroqouis managed to save themselves. No
statement on his own behalf in
this respect has been made so
far by Captain Sears. His evidence at the inquest was to the
effect that the shifting of the
cargo caused the vessel to founder,
This statement was borne out by
Engineer Thompson anil others.
Death   Roll   Now   Twenty
Already the known drowned
number twenty, and it is believed
that several others have still to
be accounted fur. Although close
watch   has   been   kept   for   them
search has failetl to reveal more
than the nine luxlies found yesterday. To the list of dead must
be added tin- following names:
William Aitken, Vanvouver.
George Webber, Pittsburg, Pa
Mr. and Mrs. Green, England
P. Green   England.
The last named passengers had
only recently arrived from the
oltl country.
Demand  Govt.   Enquiry
Lasl night the Vancouver Board
of Tratle, in view of the recent
distressing marine disasiers on the

into the system of marine regulations on this coast.

Record-Maker and Winner last
Year with Fast Siberian Wolf

24 Miles from Nome.
(Special to the Optimist )
Nome, Alaska, April 12���A. A.
Allan has scooped up the $6000
all Alaska Sweepstakes on the
Nome to Candle and return race
by dog team. He made the distance in 81 hours, 40 minutes,
driving the team entered by Mrs.
Darling Berkeley of California,
whose keen interest in thc event
is well known.
Ill-luck attended Johnson, the
winner for last year, and holder
of the record for the distance, 71
hours, 14 minutes. Driving Sir
James Ramsay's magnificent team
of Siberian wolf hounds he was
making a splendid bid for success
and a new record when suddenly
struck by a sharp attack of snow-
blindness, he was forced to abandon
the contest only twenty-four miles
from Nome. Shortly after he
gave up, the victor Allan, swept
past him at full cry.
Why She Was Late
Having to call at Nanaimo for
coal was thc cause of the S. S.

hours behind the usual time of
the C.. T. P. boat today. She is
taking the place of the Prince
Rupert this week. Thc Prince
(ieorge arrived at two o clock

MOKOVITCH IS COMMITTED
FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER
He is the Man Who is Said to Have Shot Sergt. Phillip-
son in the Forehead���Juykavitch Goes With
Him on a Similar Charge
Milo   Mokovitch,   the   striker lipson getting roughly handled in
charged with shooting at Police
Sergeant Phlllipson during the riot
on First avenue last Thursday
afternoon, appeared before the
Magistrate yesterday. The Sergeant, who was the first witness,
told of the coming of the procession of the strikers to Mclnnes
& Kelly's cut where hc was on
duty, then of a number of the
strikers breaking down thc barrier
around the cut and of the commencement of the trouble.
Witness said he was struck on
the back with a rock and turned
round and grabbed the man who
threw it. No sooner had he got
hold of the man than another rock
hit him on the arm and put thc
arm out of commission, consequently he was obliged lo let
go of his man. Then witness
said he heard a revolver shot
fired and felt something hit his
forehead. Turning round hc saw
Mokovitch with a revolver pointed
at him.   Defendant then ran away.
Special Constable George Leek
the melee and saw Mokovich
point a revolver at the sergeant,
fire it then run away.
Special Constable Morrison saw
Mokovich fire the revolver at the
sergeant. The officer saw defendant run away and the officer
gave chase and arrested him .ind
took him to the police station.
When searched Mokovich had no
gun on him.
W. E. Williams, of Messrs.
Williams & Manson, for the defence cross examined each of the
three witnesses to ascertain whether they were sure of thc identity
of the defendant. They all were.
Mokovich was committed for trial.
Bail was refuse^.
During the hearing W. H. Montgomery of the Longshoremen's
Union was an Interested spectator.
Soon after the court resumed

WILL BUILD NEW IMMIGRATION OFFICES
Medical Officer J. 0. Reddie Has Plans for a Large Immigration
Building to be Erected Near the Wharf���Will Have
Suitable Accommodation in Preparation for
Influx of Newcomers
Owing to the increasing number
of settlers from the United States
coming to Prince Rupert antl the
rich country around the city, the
Dominion Government have decided to build a temporary building this year near the waterfront.
The plans for this new building
were sent to Dr. J. O. Reddie,
Immigration Officer, this week
for his approval. After looking
them over Dr. Reddie has sent
them back to Ottawa with a few
suggestions for improvements.
Near the Wharf
The  plans  call   for  a  building
measuring m6 X 35 feet  to cost
about $3,.r)00 with offices antl rooms
for the temporary accommodation
of those arriving from the country
to the south.
There will bc commodious office
accommodation for Dr. Reddie
and the staff which will shortly
be needed to assist him .as immigration f-gures leap up, and a
properly equipped detention building near the wharf with apartments for male and female immigrants whom it may be necessary to detain.
Larger Building Later
Dr. Reddie advised the government that thc tide of settlers
coming here was increasing every
week and consequently a building
was at once necessary. [It is
learned that within two or three
years the Department of Interior
will erect a new permanent substantial building for the handling
of new arrivals here.
Others to Follow
There is considerable talk that
the Dominion Government will
erect a fine Large Post Office
and customs building in the near
future in Prince Rupert, so that
when the O. T. P. transcontinental
line is completed ample accommodation antl facilities will be provided for the handling of the big
business that will be inevitable.

London, April 12.���Armstrong
Whitworth & Company, Ltd., of
London, have been awarded the
contract for the vessels of the new
Turkish navy, consisting of three
battleships of H.,.r>00 tons each
and several smaller craft. The
original tender of this firm was
���425 per ton and they received the
contract only on reducing their
price to af400, the figures submitted by the Palmers Shipbuilding & Iron Company, Ltd., of
London, in conjunction with the
Bethlehen Steel Company.
Under the latter tender the warships woultl have been built in

Seattle, April 12.���Flung like
a thunderbolt from a building
sixty feet high, his tissues torn
antl blackened by the awful force
of thirty thousand volts of electricity which flashed through
him, the shattered corpse of Harry
Caillis was hastily gathered up
from the pavement near the Municipal Power Plant today.
With ten bricklayers (iillis hail
been engaged on the rtx.f of the
high building. He was standing
on a wet iron cornice when by
chance his head came in contact
with a high tension wire from the
Power House beside him, and in
a Hash all Hell seemed lo break
loose on the roof there. Caillis
through his rent body conducted
the  current   to  the  iron  cornice
working. Every one of them was
stunned by the shock, and the
hapless Caillis was hurled over the
edge to the street. Death must
have been instantaneous.
HAS NO USE FOR STRIKES
Labor Leader Resigns Presidency of Union in Disgust
Roasting his enemies roundly,
T. L. Lewis on Thursday retired
from the presidency of the United
Mine Workers of America, for
which office he was recently defeated by John P. White, of Iowa.
Lewis's valedictory was bitter.
He stated that it was unfortunate
that the miners' organization was
gradually drifting into the control
of men with no sense of justice,
with no regard lo wage contracts,
and wilh no scruples as to how-
to retain power. As a lasl word
Lewis reiteratetl his opposition
to strikes.
It is said that the local members
of the Longshoremen's Union have
retained S, S. Taylor, K. ('., of
Vancouver, one of the cleverest
lawyers in the province lo defend
the strikers at their trial. It is
also said that the longshoremen
have agreed to pay Mr. Taylor
��2,000 for his services.
When asked about this today
Mr. W. 11. Montgomery said
he was not in a position at present
to give out anything definite.
"We are well satisfied with Mr.
Williams' services here," he said.
He said Mr. Taylor was expected
to arrive in the city this afternoon
on the S. S. Prince George to get
some facts of the situation. Mr.
Montgomery said the longshoremen are well able to pay such a
sum to Mr. Taylor or any able
lawyer. They have a large fund
on hand to lie devoted towards
defending the strikers, a good
deal of which was subscribed by
business men of the city, some of
whom   gave   hundreds  of dollars.
It is not likely that the men
Committed for trial by Magistrate
Carss will bc tried here, even if
the Attorney General Bowser decs
consent to appoint a judge to
come here, because thc defence
will strenuously object to a jury
made up of local men, who it is
alleged, would be prejudiced either
in favor or against the men on
trial. Mr. Taylor, will, it is
Understood not act in the preliminary hearings.
Mr. Fisher of the Longshoremen
went to Vancouver last week with
an aide anil the securing of Mr.
Taylor is said to be the result of
the visit to that city.
S. S. Taylor, K. C, has acted
for the defence in a number of
prominent labor cases in lhe courts
of British Columbia. Hc also
acted for the defence in the
recent inquiry in Vancouver of
the Royal Commission into the
alleged smuggling of Chinese into
Canada.

THE COUNCIL  AND  THE   RATS
no joke that discussion of the rat problem in the council
night, despite the quaint propositions put forward by
aldermen. And it will be still less ol .1 joke if the summer
is allowed to come and yo and see nothing practical done to riti the
wharf and reserve of the nuisance. Tho Pied Piper of Hamelin would
bo worth his guilders if ho would honor our city wharves with the siren
like notes of his magic flute and lure all the rals of Rupert into the
harbor.
Should the situation be allowed to get out of hand, we might have
to face such a possibility as that which nou ci nfn nts the inhabitants
of a large portion of the English country of Suffolk, where there is
a large district of some hundreds of square miles, with Ipswich as its
centre, which is now known to be infested with rat? among whom
there is an epidemic vi plague. Last year four persons died in this
area of plague. In India and other places where plague is frequent,
an epidemic of plague among rats is always fi llowed by an epidemic
of plague among human beings.
It is not argued that the rats of Prince RuixTt are plague smitten.
but outside of their destructive properties, they aro known to have
the power to be plague carriers. With the prospect that ship- fi m
the Orient may soon be tieing up at our wharves, it is of thc utmost
importance that the rats be exterminated,
S closely related are the tables of infection among rats and
humans that a Plague Commissi r appointed by ilu Ir.di.in Government, in discussing the subject with Mr. E. S. Grew whose articli
on rats in the London Magazim for March is well worth reading, says
"In considering the onset ol ; lague, it is plague among rats that you
must keep in view." It is plague among rats that causes plague among
men.
Genoa, Venice, Constantinople, Amsterdam, have all had visitations of plague. I.oik:> : ..- 1 eon free since tlie gri.tt visitation in
1666. Seven millions : peopli as much as the whole population
of Canada���have died in India of; lague sime 1896. It is still ravaging
India and tht great Cnam province in China.
While the rat lives it is a menact to the health of human beings
The council will do a good work���they maj never know hon goo
the work will be���if they exterminati the rat-, and take step- witl

Plenty of  room  for  the  running

Rev. J. 1). Morrow, the athletic
pastor of the partially constructed
Dale Presbyterian Church, Toronto, better known as the "Athletes'
Church," is an advocate of boxing.
He says: "People say boxing
doesn't develop the best side of a
man's nature, but it does. It
helps him to control his temper,
to think of the other man's feelings
to build up his character, and to
get rid of his surplus energy.
And remember, if a young fellow
doesn't work off that extra bit of
energy in a sane, honest way, hc
will do it by undesirable means
to the detriment of his moral it y
and his manhood. It is so: I
know it."
"Reverend Jay Dee," as the
athletes call him, can "go some,"
himself. He bumps into some
pretty rough customers in his
work, and he won't stand any
nonsense. If he thinks that a
whaling is what a man desreves
and that it is coming to him, he
hasn't the slightest bit of hesitation in handing it to him. As he
says: "If a man goes to jail he
is where I can't reach him, if
he goes to th'1 hospital I can talk
sense into him.
Rev. Mr. Morrow's methtxls
and ideas sometimes shock thc
more staid ministers and leaders
of his church, but he is the idol
of the boys around town, and is a
wonderful factor in the uplifting
of a class thai ordinary churches
and pastors do not, or cannot
reach.

For weeks the telephone department of ., nty nol many
miles from tlie Skeena River, has
I been mystified by the fact that
la eertain party line has been tied
up every Friday afternoon for an
hour or two. Complaints reaching
Central weri' .mended to by the
prompt sending of a man to investigate, but though he called
and examined all the instruments,
and went painstakingly over every
possible source of trouble, the
mystery remained. Every other
day the line worked all right On
Friday afternoons alone it failed.
At lasl the manager himself,
(whom wa' may call Cupid) proved
himself wry different from the
adjective that rhymes with the
name we have given him, and
solved the mystery. A dear old
idy found that for darning blockings a telephone receiver .m.-wered
quite as well as a five-cent darning
ball; furthermore, she had dedicated Friday to ihe gentle service
of darning lhe family hose. That
was all there was about il. That
she cut oil' the entire party service
perhaps did not occur lo her.
One can see the good old soul
settling herself comfortably beside
the telephone, spectacled, shawled
and    pruiialla-booted,   beside   her
a basket whose contents guarantee
uninterrupted occupation for hours.
As she removes the receiver from
its   lawful   place   and   plunges   it
into the length of a stocking, one
i   see her mild satisfaction, and
read her complacent reflection that
nobody would  waul a more convenient darning ball, nor a cheaper.
One can see her rocking to and
fro,   running   her   needle  in   and
out,   over   and   across   lhe   little
black tulic, as she hums snatches
of    old-fashioned    tunes,    finding
pleasure, good soul, in the homely
task  and   the   consciousness  that
she  is well   employed.     Kor  the
old lady it was darning day.    For
the  enraged   party  subscribers it
was more than thai.
The fact thai she always arose
when ilic telephone man called,
hung up lhc receiver, and let him
examine the instrument accounts
for his having been baffled for
several weeks. She used lo tell
him the simple truth that she
herself had no use for the 'phone
as she didn't like "they newfangled kickamaleeries" so lie never
imagined that the receiver had
been right oil the hook before he
called and found things apparently
all right with the instrument.
