"I DID MY VERY BEST AS A MAN
AND A SAILOR," SAYS CAPT. SEARS
Says He Would Not Wish to Alter Today Anything He Did Then---Gives Graphic Description of the Wreck and the Incidents Afterwards---Story of Feud Between
Captain and Purser is Revived���Witnesses State That Vessel Was
Overloaded and Top Heavy-���Diver Locates the Wreck
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria!   April   14.���Today  investigation   of   the   Iroquois  disaster is proceeding at Sidney, and
already  Captain Sears is making
his defence against the charge of
cowardice, and  abandonment  of
the passengers in his charge.    To
the Court of Enquiry, lie said:
I  emphatically deny
that  I did  not do all
that a man could possibly do to aid the passengers.   Looking back
upon the events of the
wreck    I   would   not
wish to alter today anything at all which I did
then.     I  did  my very
best  as a  man   and  a
sailor to save the lives
of all on board.
Captain Sears repeated his account  of the voyage of the  Iroquois up lo the time of the wreck.
The weather, he said, was squally,
the wind from Ilie south east.
"Hut." said Captain Sears, "I
have been out in the Iroquois
in far worse weather in perfect
safety."
The Captain's account of the
actual moment of the wreck, however, throws more light on the
cause   of   the   boat's   capsfarfng.
She had a mixed cargo including
hay, which for its hulk is light,
and rails which for their bulk
are heavy. The rails apparently
were on deck.
Rails Rolled to One Side
"At the entrance to Canoe
Channel," went on the Captain,
"the wind struck us on the beam,
and with the seas gave the vessel
a slight list. Then she gave a
lurch which sent some of the
cargo sliding lo the lee side. I
sent men below to shift it back,
and put her head to the wind.
She would not right herself, and
I headed her at once for Ruben's
Bay. We had not gone far,
however, when she began to settle
suddenly, and I ordered the boats
out.
First Boat Swamped
Into the first lifeboat 1 put
the three ladies who were aboard,
and six o the men passengers.
They could not manage the craft,
and she swamped. Most of those
who were aboard of her were able
to regain the boat. As the Iroquois settled her upper deck broke
away and many of the passengers
got on this as well as other pieces
of wreckage.
Called for Volunteers
"The   other   lifeboat   came   to
HAMAR GREENWOOD M. P.
IS COMING TO RUPERT
Brilliant Young Canadian is Now One of the Leading
Men in British House of Commons���Sketch
of His Career���Will Arrive Here
Some Time in May
he cries, "A horse, a horse, my
kingdom for a horse."    Hut when
Greenwood goes into battle he will
probably want a shire stallion.
He told a cheering House of
Commons lhat he did mil object
to fight for his country bin he
preferred to light from lhe back
of a horse.
In Ontario llaiuar Greenwood
is well remembered. He with
his brother \V. H.���now managing
editor of the Toronto World���
were educated at Western University London, Ontario, and the
annals of the college are replete
with tales of lhe doings of thc pair.
When Hamar Greenwood went
to Kngland, many people thought
they were saying goodbye to the
young barrister. An experience
as a literary hack round Fleet
street, a brief experience on the
stage playing as a double lo Mr.
George Alexander whom hc most
powerfully resembles or resembled���arc among his list of experiences. Very rapidly he won out,
and wilh his entrance into British
politics lhe young Canadian barrister rapidly established a place
for himself. Al lhe lime he
Contested York for the Liberals
it was looked upon: as a forlorn
hope. Hut the breezy style of
lhe young Canadian look the
fancy of the electors, and England
woke up wilh a start at the result,
and Greenwpod woke up to lind
himself famous.
Now he is looked upon as one
of the marked men on the Liberal
side of the Mouse of Commons.
I'rince    Ktiperl    is   lo   have a
visit from Mr. Hamar Greenwood
M. I\ for Sunderland in the
British House of Commons. It
i- not announced definitely yet
whether his visit is to be one
of business or pleasure, though
some rumors have whispered the
words    Honeymoon  trip" in  T"f
erenco to Mr. Hamar Greenwood s
journey.  This the popular M. P.
himself does nol yet either confirm
or deny, but his presence in I'rince
Rupert may be expected in Mayor June.
Hamar Greenwood is a man of
forceful charactcrislscs, {and a
bright and popular 'speaker in
the WestWinster House. He is
it Canadian, and there is much
of the freshness of the prairies
about him. He talks like a man
used io liv ng in the Open,
He is a bit of a soldier, a bit of
a barrister, a bit of a journalist
ii bit of a Freemason, a bit of a
politician. Join the bits together,
and you get Hamar Carecnwood.
He is two yards long, bulky, and
is still adding to his weight, litis a bachelor, but he is going to
slop that in the merry month
of May. He sat for York City
for a time, and expects to sit for
Sunderland till he is made a peer.
He displayed a Rift contempt
for the way ihey do things in tin-
British Army and the young soldiers Ofl the Conservative side
of the House cheered him like
mad.
Mr. Greenwood is a horse soldier, and like Richard in the play,
the surface about twenty feet
from where I was on the upper
deck. We soon secured it, but
I discovered that it had been
stove in.
'I then called for volunteers
lo eave the upper deck of the
ship which was overladen with
people, and the chief engineer
and the three Indians came with
me in the badly smashed lifeboat.
I did not leave the wreckage
until twenty minutes alter the
vessel sank.
Anxious to Get Help
"When 1 left the boat then-
were a large number of passengers
on the upper deck, but most of
them had on lifebelts and I did
not think that they were in any
immediate danger. 1 told iheni
that they wou d be as safe on
the wreckage as we would be, and
that is the reason why 1 called
for volunteers to man the boat
to go ashore and seek assistance.
I did not know at that time
whether the news of our foundering had been received in Sidney
and was therefore very anxious
to get help. When I was on
thc shore, however, 1 noticed
that preparations had been made
anil thai they were dispatching
a vessel to our assistance."
Over-loaded and Top-heavy
Already a number of witnesses
at today's enquiry have slated
that the Iroquois was over-loaded
and top-heavy. Some passengers
it is asserted, actually refused
to taki. passage on her before
she left on her fatal trip. This
Captain Sears of course, discredits.
A witness, G. Neeves, of Sidney,
who actually saw the Iroquois
swamp said:
"I was standing at the railway
station, waiting to catch the train
to Victoria, 1 noticed the vessel
keel over on her port side. Those
with me cried out, 'She's going
to sink.' We watched her for
about  live minutes when she slid
denly disappeared,   The distance
was so great and the mist so heavy
lhal we could nol see what had
been taking place on board. In
about half an hour's lime one
of the Ixiats from lhe wrecked
vessel came ashore with Captain
Sears and  the two Indians in it,
bin I left then for Victoria."
Bad Blood Existed
A strange circumstance which
may have rather an important
bearing on the wreck, came to
light al the inquiry today. It
turns out that though ihey were
joint owners of the vessel, Captain
Sears and the Purser A. ('���. Munro
were on most unfriendly terms,
For years bad blond had existed
between them, and it is declared
that they never spoke a word
to one another all lhat time,
though neither would sell mil
lo  the  other  his interest   in   the
steamer.
As  a  clear  understanding  is
always supposed to exist between
captain and purser in regard to
mattes relating to the cargo,
stowage for convenience in dis-
clia ging at particluar ports, etc.,
the effect of the feud between
thc men may have indirectly
brought about the disaster. Purser Munro was drowned, so his
version of lhe matter can never
be obtained.
Diver Locates Wreck
News was brought in tulav
that a diver named J. Hardy has
located the wrecked vessel in
about fourteen fathoms of water.
No bodies have lieen brought to
the surface by him as yet, and
no more have come ashore or
been seen drilling. It will be
part of the purpose of the enquiry
now in progress to fix if possible
thc exact number of passengers
on board the Iroquois at the
time of the disaster.
Captain Defended Boat
At    the    lime   of    the   Sechelt
tlisaster the statement was made
lhal the Iroquois was a boat
of lhe same type This statement
was vigorously denied by Captain
Sears who declared lhal his was
a much heller and more seaworthy craft. In a litter to the
press ;il the lime he said:
"I have been master of the
Iroquois eight years, and have
been in all of the bad storms
during lhal lime, and I have
always found her a staunch little
boat, behaving splendidly in the
worst weather. The Iroquois has
made her trips aud landed her
passengers even when lhe Princess
Victoria had lo take shelter under
James Island. Also the night
that the Clallam was lost. I was
out in the straits off Smith Island,
with the seas coming over the
passenger decks so thai the lookout could nol stand on deck, but
had to take shelter in the pilot
house, and the Iroquois went
along perfectly safe and comfortable."
Ile now maintains thai it was
the shifting of the ca go that tank
her.

found  the coffer   of the auxiliary
had been strengthened by $w>.
Everything on sale was home
made. There was no charge for

The first stall inside lhe door

NO ROYAL COMMISSION
Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King at
Request of Mass Meeting of
Miners is Now Appointing
Arbitration Board.
(Special to the Optimist)
Frank, Alia., April 14��� By a
decision of the miners at a great
meeting here today, ihey will
ask the Hon. W L. Mackenzie
K ng, Minister of Labor, to appoint  a  Board  o   Arbitration  to
look into the   circumstances of
the present difference between tinmen and the niine-owners.
This means that no Royal Coin-
mission need be appointed. Advices just received announce that
the Labor Minister is now appointing the Arbitration Board,
and no lime will hc lost in preliminaries, so lhal the difficulty
may be speedily settled.
Appointed under the provisions
of the Lemieux Act the work of
the Arbitration Board which must
consist of men thoroughly free
from the remotest suspicion of
hi.is or prejudice, gives its decision
fairly lo the best of its judgment,
but this division is not necessarily binding upon the parlies
iu dispute. Only its effect is
usually lo bring about the desired
agreement.

ALDERMAN PATTULLO'S RETIREMENT
Thi regrel expressed by Mayor Manson at the retirement from
the lity council of Alderman l'attullo, is being widel) echoed throughout the city. Now the election asperities have had the rough edges
smoothed from them by the hand of Tinn, the citizens generally
.in- iu the riyln frame of mind to give a generous reci gnition to meritorious services generously n'^''". And Alderman Pattullo w.is one
whilst- election proved that his personal merit outweighed any opposition to liim based on party affiliations.
tp , A member ol a well known newspaper fan ilj reared in an atmosphere of public lilies Alderman l'attullo brought to hear on his duties
in the city count il a mind steeped in prtx edure and alert to seize upon
the relevant issues of debate. The same qualities which have earned
for his distinguished brother a plan- among thc leading writers ol
North America were noticeable in his work. Hut in his case, several
years of close association with political events in the Yukon had
quickened his alertness, so that his ability showed more in the a{ res
siveness ol debate than in the careful phrases of the penman.
Because he had been usually a severe critia- of Mayor Manson,
the Mayor's expression of regret al losing the services of Alderman
Pattullo in the council, came with especially K""d gran-. In our conduct
of public matters we have not always modelled mir -tyle on the besi
examples. Verbal courtesies have um been worked to death bv .my
means, li i- to be Imped that ihe general expressions ol regret at
Alderman Pattullo's leaving may herald a hitter state of affairs.
"Lei us .-ink our differences and boost Prince Rupert," was thc
message which Alderman l'attullo sent to the citizens two weeks
ago, at .i time when he was expecting to return hen-. That message
was well received, and came to support a timely movement to brine,
about a better condition "t affairs. It was one of the best pieces of
advice thai the <it> has received. It crowned thc service which the
alderman has given the u'ty rince it- incorporation.
RECIPROCITY AND THE EMPIRE
Prom the Manchester Guardian
In two ways can Canada render greater service to England as
a Power negotiating separate treaties with the United States than
-In could as a member oi .t Uriii-h Empire Customs Union. She can
draw closer the bonds betw en England and America. Reciprocity
between Canada and thc United States has long been a plank of the
Liberal platform in Canada, and almost everyone who hus studied
the question i.iirly has nunc to the conclusion that in, the long run
England could offer Canada nothing at .ill commensurate with the
advantage ol an open market in thc United States. Wc could only
bid against that market by increasing the cost ol food in Engltmd,
thid would In- a rickety foundation on which to erect any edifice of
lni|>cri.il Union. Very wisely, therefore, Conservative as well as
Liberal opinion in England has name around to approval of reciprocity
between Canada and thc United states, li <l<m- not involve am
weakening of the tics between Canada and England.
Canada, in Hriiish world-policy, is a gage of friendship between
England and America. England gains a friend by every act that
brings Canada into closer relations with the United States. Then
is no rivalry between England and the United
States for tin- affections ol Canada. She will lust serve our |x>liiy
by broadening the basis nf Inr own prosperity .md by a cordial policy
of friendship with the United States.

Sergeant Phlllipson said a great
thing in the polite court the other
day when he was being cross
examined by Mr, Williams over
that "tumultous and disorderly
mob" business. While admitting
like im honest man that he
learned the phrase in
on certain occasions when it was
peeu iarly apt, he stoutly refused
rn admit thai Buch scenes were
frequent in the Emerald I>le-
"I would not disgrace my native
l.uul by saying such a thing,'
he declared sturdily in denial
of the insinuation.
Right you were, Sergeant. True
to vour native land, and true
to vour own instinct ol personal
responsibility for the upholding
of its good name, you are the stuil
to make Canada proud of you,
too. I doubt very much it a
really sjoixl Canadian by adoption,
was ever made out of an immi-
grant who couldn't stand up for
his own country first.

C. B. Lockhart, Assignee
Spring is certainly coming. I
met ;i friend of mine lhe oilier
day with a patch of blue ptdnl
on his forehead, a eoat of many
colors like Joseph's, on his back,
and an aroma about him like
lhe innermost recesses nl a ship-
candlery. He was steering his
homeward course from one ol
the boat houses, and wore what
seemed to me most a unusually
toil-worn expression a- if he had
been doing a hard day's work.
Knowing him for a real estate
man 1 made a few anxious enquiries. The answer was the one
word, "Launch." My toil-worn
friend turned out to be the first
harbinger of spring iu Prince Rupert and I hailed him accordingly.
He said the weather had already-
been doing enough of that for the
month of April, and plunged into
,i graphic description of a day
slient in the bilge of a gasoline
launch, scraping and painting, and
preparing tin- boat generally for
the season. I sympathised with
him, remarked that he was looking
thinner and watched him like
the ploughman, homeward plod
his weary way.
This morning I met him again.
He was wearing his business suit,
bill the shadowy tinge of the
blue paint still adorned his manly
brow. He also wore a vexed
expression. Again I ventured an
enquiry.
"Confound it " he said, "I can't
think  why  women  want   to start
(spring cleaning. When I got
home   last   night   the   place   was
; topsy tttrvy, and I had the dickens
of a job to get my clothes changed
and escape lo the club. Just
when I was about all in with
cleaning tip ihe launch, too. I
tell you, these women don't know
! much. They are the most illogical,
unreasonable creatures that ever
happened.''
Being masculine myself, of course
I sympathised, but all the same
I sort of fancy a girl might have
had  views of her own   to express
i about it. There's not such an
awful lot of difference between
house cleaning and launch cleaning,
,  s there?

SEEKS   BURIED   TREASURE
Captain   Hackett   Now   Ready
for  Trip  to   Cocos  Island
Seattle, April 14.���Equipped
with a complete hydraulic plant,
one of sufficient size to wash
away the entire island, the bark
Hesper is outfitting on Puget
Sound for a treasure-seeking voyage to Cocos Island, where close
lo    Sl.r).()()0.(IO()     is      believed     Io
have been buried by pir.ites.
The expedition is in charge
of Captain Hackett. who says
he has the original plan of the
location of the treasure, having
inherited il through several generations, and he will soon make
his third attempt to locate the
hidden wealth.
He said that a landslide prevented him from reaching the
money on his former trip, but
now that he is supplied with
hydraulicing machinery, he will
beal ^^
His equipment is sufficient to
level the island) and he intends lo
use il until he gets the money.
