MOTHER'S NEGLIGENCE LED     jshippingjeports
Left Two Children of Six and Seven Years in House
Alone and Went to Picture Show���-Fire Occurs
and Children are Found Dead in
iSpt! iul lo thc Optimist)
Montreal, Feb. 4. The dangerous
pr.itiic ol leaving young children alone
in a hon i> has often bscn exemplified
but surely never with greater forte
than it was in tliis city yesterday, when
twoliulr children's lives.were destroyed
by Bre. The police are endeavoring to
hive ihi mother charged wi,n criminal
The mother o( the dead children is
1 Mrs. Gcorgt Marlow. She and her
liraily.ii-i-upi .1 it flat on Chatham street.
Y.st rday afternoon she dressed and
tent nut to enjoy the luxuries of the
moving pictun show, leaving the two
liu'i.' on s who wi re only six and seven
y.ars old rspi \ively, behind to watch
lhe house.
How th. Ure started no one can tell.
Sor-ip smiill boys playing in the yard
noticed --miliar wTcaths of smoke
enu*rging from the house and dreading
that something was wrong they raised
the alarm. The Bremen were on the
spot in a very few minut.s and a f.-w
splashes of water sufficed to extinguish
the flames. The rooms of ihe house
Were filled with nauseous sniok. howvvir.
Not finding the children in bed or in
the passages the firemen ran lo the
cupboard, and as he opened the door
the lifeless bodies of the kiddi.s fell
at his feel* Thiy had lakin refuge
from the flamiB in the cupboard, unmindful of the smoke.
The tragedy raised a storm of indignation among the public. Il is well
known that tht practice of leaving
helplcn children alone in thi house
is not a mw one. Then is too much
of it going on and the police are anxious
to institute criminal proceedings against
the mother in the hope that such action
will militate against the continuance
of the practice.

G. B. S. on Music
When Mr. G. B. Shaw was a young
man and a musical crit'c ha suffered
extremely by having to attend meetings
of thc Musical Association wher hs
listened to old gentleman who were put
up to tell interminable reminiscences
of old-time musicians He nourished a
d-vam of r.-vengt in his h-'art. It was
tha' if h,? ever became an elderly man
hi would indulge in r.-minisccnccs before the same society.
The time came a few days ago. Yet
after fall he was baulked of his r ?vengei
for the audience roared with laughtei
over what Dr. Cummings the chairman
call.'d "a com c h story ot music " and
enjoy ,*d th.ms.'lvis vastly.
His btflt story wiu about a man who
sat next to him at a i-hamb. r conceit
of classical music. After listening for
som. t'mc the man turned to h-m and
sa'd: "Are ..hose th; Chr'sty M'n-
strcls'.-" "No" sa;d Bernard Shaw.
"They're down s ar' h's 's he 9th
Bymphony." "Oh Heavtns!" sa'd the
man and w��nt down stairs.
G. B. S. gave some of his ,-arly recollections. "As a boy in Dubl'n " he
said "I b>long>d not to the nineteenth
century but 'o th- tsm of Samuel
Pepys and the eighteenth cintury. I
heard Btethov *n played on a piano
with a wooden fnun.- which is a very
different thing from Beethoven on an
iron-framed piano. . . . My father
was a musical g.-nius in his way. He
could play on a trombone interminably.
In (act he could play any kind of in-
siruin.'iit, and I rememb?r Ivm picking
up a fluU and play'ng 'Home Sweet
Home' a> well that * In* maid-servant
cam.' up, thinking it was a man in the
Mr. i-i. to order him away.'
of fury, sh<> broke a blood vessel, quietly
retired behind a screen, and, having
got rid of the blood, came out again and
finished her speech. She told me in an
interview that the woman's paper of
which she is editress, The Glucheit, has
a circulation of nearly one hundred
thousand a week. She, like Singer and
Vanderveldte is a member of the International Bureau -the executive which
controls the movement.
"The dainty 'ittle creature near hex
is Rosa Luxemburg, the famous revolutionist. She is exceedingly capable,
impassioned in her eloquence, and holds
a cunning little brain under those
masses of dark hair.
"That tall, handsome woman, dressed
in a tight-fitting blue serge costume,
slashed with scarlet, is Sorgue, the
most dramatic as she is perhaps thc most
dangerous woman in the Congress.!
She holds considerable power in France,
whtre she has ,he 'direct actionists' at
her back. Shs is a great advocate of
the 'general strike' and militant methods.
"Another woman of greet influence
in the Finnish movement is Hilja
Parssinen, the poetess, whose pale,
refined face, crowned with a mass of
straw-colortd hair, and steel blue eyes,
enmesh such an extraordinary lyrical
genuis. Her last poems, 'The Girl in
the Street,' and 'The Factory Worker'
have caused a sensation far beyond
the borders of Finland. She is a school
teacher, and said to me, 'I have a
family of 600 girls. I have no time for
my poetry.  The girla firat."

Fire Brigade Got Smartly to the Scene, but Owing to the Lack of Water Pressure
Was of No Service���Absence of Breeze Fortunately Prevented Flames
from Spreading to the Electric Light Plant.
IPri.m Monday. Dally.)
What is without doubt thc biggest
and most dangerous fire that has visited
Prince Rupert since incorporation broke
out this morning and completely destroyed a two storcyed house belonging
to Mr. Haudenschild on Third avenue
about two blocks oast of McBride street
and within about thirty feet of thc new-
electric light plant. The building which
was a wooden structure succumbed to
the flames like matchwood and the
residents had to make an expeditious
exit. One of the boarders roused from
his bed just in time, took a life and death
chance by leaping from the second
storey through the dense smoke on to
the slush and snow below. Fortunately
he was uninjured. Through the smart
work of Miss Haudenschild, one of the
daughters of thc house, a considerable
portion of the furniture located on the
basement floor was saved.
Began at the Top
The fire stared in the top floor, and
from all accounts it had ita beginning
in thc room occupied by a negro lodger.
Rising about seven o'clock he lit the
fire to cook himself a meal. After he
had eaten and gone to his work the fire
began to emit sparks, and it is believed
one of these first ignited some paper
in the room, and that in turn set the
woodwork in flame. Certain it iB at
any rate that the fire began in that
room. All unconscious of the danger
the other residents of the house slumbered on. The flames got a hold of thc
pannelling and ate their way to the roof.
A small blare very soon served to
indicate to outsiders that the house
was on fire.
The Alarm and Rescue
Young Kelly who chanced to be on
thc spot noticed tho flame and understood ils purport. He at once raised
the alarm and then phoned to thc fire
brigade. In a few minutes the house
waa in uproar. There were eight people
in the house at the time, Mrs. Haudenschild ber son and daughter, and five
boarders. The daughter Sophie rose
hurriedly, and arrayed in deshabile
began to carry out the valuables and
place them outside in safety. With the
assistance of her brother and one or
two of thc other men she managed to
save the piano and a large quantity of
the other furniture on thc basement
In the desperate hurry they had
not time to take them far, so thc piecea
were left at various distances decorating
the undulating snow field.
A  Leap  for  Life
One tall Frenchman who slept in the
house did not hear the first alarm
and one of his mates rushed up stairs
through the volumes of smoke and
spits of flame to rouse him. By that
time the tall one was awake, and in a
terrible state of exceitment. Through
the dense clouds of smoke it was impossible to see anything and he came to the
conclusion that the fire was working up
instead of down. His only escape seemed
to be by the window. He was a big
man, in every respect. He threw the
window open. Realizing that his only
hope lay in a leap in the dark he gathered
his courage about him, got on the
outside of the casement, and threw
himself trustingly to the earth. His
luck was in. He alighted in the snow
and sustained very little hurt.
Thought He Was Dead
Seen later by an Optimist reporter
about his daring escapade, he smiled,
and in his broken but pleasant way
explained that it waa his only chance
of escaping from lhe burning house.
He said he thought he waa surely dead
when he fell. In spite of that he is very
much alive, though the fire means a
loss to him of at least a hundred dollars
which he had in cloihes and cash.
A Chrriahed Trophy
Another of the men who succeeded
in saving his skin and little more, was
seen fondling a small book as if he
cherished it more than all the world,
which in a sense he probably did. He
submitted the book to the examination
of the inquisitive reporter who discovered that it was neither in his own
nor in the owner's language. The
owner modestly admitted his acquaintance with several tongues. To hia
mind English was easy, and he Bpoke
it wilh considerable facility of expression
to prove it; French was also easy but
the Oriental languages he admitted were
hard. He was a worker who had lost
practically his all in the blaze, but
it seemed to disturb his "lettered heart"
less than the saving of t he book.
Fire Apparatua Arrive.
The house belonged to Mr. Haudenschild who with his family took up residence there early in the summer of
last year. At the present time he is
out of town and knows nothing of his
loss. To the energy and thoughtfulneKs
of his wife he owes what little   there
may be left of the family possessions.
The fire brigade though early on the
scene was not able to do anything to
save the building.
Two Feet Pressure
In the first place the men could not
get to the seat of operations on account
of the 3treet being up in that particular
vicinity. By taking a roundabout
route they got within a hundred yards
of the fire. From there they unwound
their hose but when they turned it on
the fire the water only squirted about
two feet from the nozzle. The sight
was pitiable to behold. The attempt
was useless. In any caae it is questionable whether any amount of water
would have saved the house by that
time. If there ever was a chance however that settled it. In a very short
time the wooden walls of the house fell
inwards with a crash.
Electric Plant Danger
It was a most fortunate thing that the
moming broke calm and windless. The
new electric power plant was only thirty
feet away from the burning house and
a breeze might have meant its utter
ruin. The man in charge of the plant
awoke with a start when the fire was
at its highest, and in his own words
did not breathe for quite a few minutes
with anxiety. He dived into his clothes
with a speed that put any protean artist
to shame, and rushed out to gauge the
chances of contagion. And it was with
a sense of personal, almost of bodily
relief, that he calculated upon the
safety of the station.
Building Insured
Miss Sophie Haudenschild stated that
the house and gear was insured. The
exact damage is impossible to estimate,
but it will cover several thousand

Namea of Prominent Official. Immortalized.
(From Wednesday's Dally.)
Fifteen of the new stations on the
main line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
have received their official baptism, and
their titles now fixed for all time, have
gained the approval of the G. T. P. dignitaries at Winnipeg and Montreal.
The process of naming is much the
same all over thc world, whether the
subject bc a man or a thing. In no
instance can they protest. In naming
the stations one or two of the more
prominent men connected with the G.
T. P. organization in various branches
have been immortalized. Among
those whose names stand out conspicuously from the list are those of
Phelan and Salvus. As most people
know. Phelan is the name of the genial
superintendent of the Dominion government telegraph department. Mr.
Salvus is a prominent G. T. P. contractor.
The names of the stations are as follows: Sockeye 16.61, Tyee 21.28, Essington 26.49, Skeena 32.36, Phelan

City Council la Considering Matter
Which Remaina Unsettled���Alderman Newton Wants to Conault
the People on the Subiect.
Coat Will Be Ab ut $8,000 for Streeta
Now Being Graded but Walla Will
Not  Have Very  Finished Appear-
(From Wednesday's Dally.)
Evidently none of the property owners
onstreete now being graded are going
to undertake the building of retaining
walla in front of their own lots. This
plan it was thought would be generally
adopted. Some property owners did
go to the length of having plans and
specifications prepared, but thoy went
no farther, adn it is up td the city now
to look after thi job aa a whole.   The
matter came up at the last ouncil.
Colonel Davis, the city engineer, in
a full report explained five methods
of constructing retaining walls. The
one he recommended most would cost
$229,000 and would be substantially
constructed masonry of good appearance.
The leas expensive intermediate methods
were deecribed, and the last method
which could be done without the employment of masons would cost $8,000.
This method would give a retaining
wall substantial enough, but lacking
in appearance compared with the first
On this question Aldeman Hilditch
was condemnatory. He could not
favor the motion to adopt thc report
because he thought there was not
money enough for the first rate scheme,
snd he didn't think the other methods
worth undertaking. He blamed the
situation on last council. Alderman
Pattullo was surprised that Alderman
Hilditch should take up this attitude
in regard to the old council. If the
responsibility for the present difficulty
was on the old council how much of
it rested on Alderman Hilditch himself? he asked. Alderman Hilditch was
a member of the streets, works and
property committee of last council
Alderman Pattullo went on to say lhal
while he favored the $229,000 scheme
for retaining walls he did not think
the city could stand it now, and he
also did not think it fair to the owners
west of the junction to make them pay
for improvements over the whole section.
The $8,000 scheme was not perfect but
it would give a fairly substantial wall,
and he did not think the city could
afford a better scheme.
In Alderman Morrisey's opinion the
whole matter could safely be 'eft with
the city engineer. The city had a good
engineer, and the question might well
be left in his hands.   This view was
(From Wednesday's Dally.)
About 130 men are at present cm-
ployed on works for tlic city by the
city engineering department. A considerable part of their operations consists in the building of culverts to deal
with the drainage from wide areas in
the central sections the natural outlet
for which is being crossed by thc new
street grades. At the last city
council the question of payment for
these works came up. Is it to be done
out of general fund or local improvement?
That it is chargeable to general fund
is the opinion of Alderman Pattullo,
but Alderman Hilditch favors local
improvement. He told the council he
believed that in paying more than
$15,000 on this work out of general fund
the city was breaking the municipal
clauses act.
Alderman Pattullo thought it hardly
fair that Section One owners should
pay for work which is rendered necessary
by the drainage water from higher

supported by Alderman Clayton.
The matter, to Alderman Newton
seemed rather big to tackle all at once.
He thought it would be better to leave
it over until next week.
It was moved that the report be
adopted and the fourth method recommended with retaining walls be the one
gone on with. The motion was carried,
Alderman Hilditch dissenting.

How The Treaty Will Help Prince Rupert
After the appals to ignorance by tht corporation politicians in the Legislature'who have pictured biue ruin or ui all if tht F.deral Governmen succeed*
In its llorts o rebate $7,000,000 taxes on .he people's food, some pertinent facts
about what t he tn aty will do to build up Prince Rupert are made n.ctssary. Th.st
funs ought lo have been expound-d by the mjimbtr for Skeenu lo his con.iti.ueiUs
and io the Houst.l.u' 'nf ���ud 'hat gen 'email has gone to V;ctor>a lo join the corpora'ion line-up to prevail ih, treaty being ratified. Th*. 'acts an. oi paramount
importance, because they concern the fishing industry, the most important of
all our coast indus rios. and the one which shows mos�� promise of development.
Last year tht British Columbia salmon pack wa*. 738.4S5 cases; 593 000
of the cases were of sockeys and the liner kinds of fish: the balance were of hump
back and dog salmon Our salmon pack looks very large until wc line it up with
the. Alaska pack which last year tolalled 2,391,000 cases. This indicates the possibilities of tl.e market.
Although the British Columbia salmon is of a higher grade than the Alaskan
salmon, the latter has been g.-tting higher prices. For the liner kinds il secured
$1 a can, and for the cheaper kinds 75 cents a case more than the B. C. salmon
on the average. This wus because the Alaskan salmon was "protecUd" by th
U. S. Government by a duty of a een. a pound. Thut cent a pound, usually with
a little more tucktd on, wus paid by the ignorunt und oft-times poor consumer.
Hal It only known it, it wus thc hutefullest kind of tux. Usually he thought it
patriotic, or believed that In some mysterious wuy the gowrnm nt paid it for him.
I'nder tht proposed reciprocity treuty. that cent a pound U to be taken oil
thu fish by th. United Slates government, with the rts\ilt thnt British Columbian
salmon may b-. sold in the United StaUs markets without being tax. d. If present
prices prevail, it will mean un added profit of 75c to $1 a cas, to t he B. ('. canners
!on all tl.e sulmon they sell across thc line. What is more likely, the canner and
the conaumi r will divide t he pric. between thtm, io thc advantage of both.
The ratifying of the treaty means that a new market for '2,391,000 cases of
salmon is to be op< iu d to thi B. C. canners. Already John Wallace of Work Island
near Swanson Buy is urranging t o instal a 50,000 case plant if t he trt aty goes through;
Mr. Goss of Knight's Inlet with a 20,000 pack last year, is urranging to instal
a 50.000 case plant, while Desbrisay, the Prince of Wales Island canner, who had
to close down his plant when tht Island was ceded to Canudu under the Alaskun
��� award, is awaiting in Ottawa the ratification of the treaty in order to go ahead
with a 35,000 cast* plant on the Island near Port Simpaon, All along thc coast,
the canners arc awaiting news that the tax on food is cast off in order to incrias.
thtir plums, whil. those Interests who profit most by keeping the people's food
supply 'down, an* movini: heaven nnd eurth and legislatures to prevent the treaty
from passing.
The good effects of tho treaty on our trade would not stop he."e. At present
the cheaper kinds of salmon ure not profitable to pack. Some canneries only pack
ther. because it is the- cheapest way of disposing of them. But there is a market
abroad for cheap salmon, and if the treaty pass.s, the millions of humpbacks which
now till our creeks and buys each spring to tit: fisherman's dilgwt, will become
the mean*, of producing orolits and revenue
With fre. trade in fish, the Seattle licet, will no longer huve to tuke a six day-H'
trip away from the bunks io land their catch in Seattle free of duty. It will be
more profitable for them to put into Prince Rupert, and tranship their cargos
t�� the fivers, and return to thi banks. The fishing and shipping industries ot the
i coast on which ~o much of Prince Rupert*! hope of prosperity is built will get a
big fillip if the tn'iity curries.
Tin* member for Skeena will huve a lot to answer for on his return if he casts
his vote along with the railway corporation interests at Victoria uguinst free food
and i lie upbuilding o( the fishing industry.
It Is a Cruel Slander
Now that it has bo-en admitted by the organ of thc City Council that it is
��� the deliberate intention of the authorities to perpetuate vice in the city by affording
protection to those immoial house*, whose proprietors have votes, tht Moral and
Social Reform Council of Princi Rupert would do well to take -om* action in the
way of txpreeaing their views nf 'hat policy. If they do not, iheir action iu passing
a vole of hearty apprecia iin lo lh" authorities will be taken as . vitl. nee to support
the claim ihul tiny an- pan it's io tli. prcsi'iii arrangement of retaining the parlor
Whih Wi have no communication from either of the reverend gentlemen
mentioned whow narau an* quoted in such a manner ai to-r*ad the unthinking
to believt ihat they coincided with the Instructions to the Chief of Police, knowing
thul those instructions were intended to protect the parlor hints ft, tht Optimist
pre'trs t believt that the Statement i- a deliberate slander. Certainly lo quote
the Incidental remarks of a local minister as justification for the polity of segregation is as cruel us it is unfair.
A Crest-Fallen Editor
For his action in insisting that tht City Council cut $40 off a bill for advertising
Bint in by u member of the Council al last meeting, Aldermun Puttullo is worthy
of public praise Had it not been (or his watchfulness nnd courage, the bill would
huve bein passed and would have formed a precedent for passing other overcharged
accounts for advertising
In this ens. the editor-alderman in addition to inserting the ordered advertising, prinu d over each u lurge and Imposing looking crest In some cas.s the crest
occupied more space than the advertisement. For the spue, so occupLd payment
at the rate of $1.20 un inch was chu.gcd. The alderman's excuse when calk d upon

Permitted for Her Sex
Paris, Feb. 1.���Madame Marie Cu ie,
who with her husband, thc late Porfessor
Pirrie Curie, discovered radium, waa
defeated today in her candidacy for
membership in the Academy of Sc:ences,
receiving but twenty-e-ight votes against
thirty for Kdouard Branly.
Tho candidature of Madame Curie
for the seat in the Academy of Sciences
once occupied by her husband, und
after his death by the late M Gerncz,
has attract.-d international attention
H the only obstacle to her election was
the fact that she was a women.
Her brilliant work in scientific research is everywhere recognized as
placing her in the front rank of scientis s.
In the d'scovery of radium she is genrally
admitted to have had a groater part
than l'rof. Curie.

Natural Brilliance
William Brattle Nesbitt B. A. M. D.
was born on a peaceful little farm up
in Oxford county some 45 year., ago.
At the iig ��� of 19 after completing a
preparatory education at Pickering College he came to Toronto and enrol cd
as an Arts student in thp University
of Toronto taking up his quart.ra n
the old University College residence.
The man's natural brilliancy indomi*-
able energy and trTa ic th-rst for sf'r
and excitement made him on. of the
features of the institution and his old
classmates tell som.- remarkabl. tales
of his own original ideas of >nter'sin-
ment. Even as a youth his strength
was enormous and many of the muscular
nf.'oinplishm.'iits attributed to his student days would !>.- littL- short of incredible were t not for a few more recent
Prodigioua Spirit*
He was proud of his great strength
and delighted in bowing it off. He
could lift a man or what is probably
something light.r a college undergraduate with each hand. He could do
the Indian club exercises with a pair of
heavy arm chairs. He liked tc break
things that others couldn't br-.ak. Th ire
was more tear .han wear on the lurnitur.
in th* old Residence; and "l.r akag."
was a h.'iivy item in the monthly bills.
In tips mattd of inevitable destruction
Billy Nesbitt's battle���that's the highly
appropriate college num.. for it���led
all th. rest. Chairs doors tables���
these wer.' only the small change of
his prowess
Strong Man Stunt*
Not long ago while up in the north
country he entered a slor. In which a
number of men were standing along a
counter.   In an excess of jovialty  th>
Jctor wont right along tho HrTpM

Once while staying in Ottawa he del

viewed the coal mining situation in the

large discoveries of coal areas in the
Peace River and other districts. The

the world over and he did not think
it unreasonable to think that many
other measures when fully developed
would not be less famous.
He claimed that the bill before the

Phone 178, Prince Rupert, B.C. THE   PRINCE   RUPERT   OPTIMIST
C. P. R. Orders a Duplicate of the Princess Adelaide
for the Northern Run���C. N. R. Will Also Put
Two Steamers on a Weekly  Service
I From Monday's Dally.)
There is every probability that during
next summer Prince Rupert, the seat
of the great last west will have a daily
steamship service with Vancouver and
the south. This almost startling development is mad.- possible by the announcement that the Canadian Pacific
company has duplicated its order for
another Princess Adelaide to ply between
Vancouver, Prince Rupert and Stewart.
The Adelaide
Thc Adelaide was built by the Fairfield Shipbuilding & Engineering company and on her trials she made an
average speed of 18.25 knots. She
sailed from the Clyde on October 4, and
arrived at Victoria on December 16
Captain Lindgren, formerly skipper of
the Mexican liner Loasdale, brought
her out. She is 290 feet long, 46 feet
boom and 17 feet deep. She is constructed of steel throughout, with cellular double bottom, two watertight
flats and is practically unsinkable*
Perfect Replica
The order for the duplication was
wired to the builders almost immediately
the Princess Adelaide was seen in Pacific
waters. Her style was so much above
reproach and her utility so obvious that
the company felt they could not do
better than have her replica operating
in thc waters of Northern British Clo-
umbia for them.
Bi-Weekly Service
Of course it is possible that she may
replace the Beatrice on the run just
as the Adelaide has replaced the Charmer
on the trip to Victoria, but it is regarded
in shipping circles both in Prince Rupert
and Vancouver that during the summer
months at any rate when thc trade of
thp coast is booming with the influx
of settlers and the consequent output
of material, that both the steamers w*ll
be run and will form a bi-weekly service
in the same way as the Prince George
and Prince Rupert ol the G. T. P. are
expected to do.
A Steamer Per Day
In this way the possibility of a daily
service with the south looms promisingly
upon the horizon. With the fleets of
the G. T. P. the Canadian Pacific, the
Canadian Northern, and the Union
steamship vessel, the Camosun, there
will be seven regular ships making this
port with passengers and freight every
Conditions Improving
Of course by the time the promises
of today are realized ma-y changes
may have taken place in the personnel
of thc coasting boats of the north Pacific
but it is not at all likely that whatever
alterations may be made they will be
any diminution in the sevice. The
forecast is based upon the present conditions, and although the ships may
come and go it is not to be believed
that the circumstances of trade and
commerce will deteriorate, the reverse
order of things being much the more
probable event nation.
Will Make Trade
Thc very fact that these great shipping organizations have seen fit to undertake the task of developing the trade
of the coast of British Columbia by
putting on a service which will be more
than adequate for the present demands,
is not only a huge advertisement for the
Province, it is a stimulant that will
inevitably bring about its own reward
by facilitating the trade relations of
the north and the south, and thereby
developing the great and inherent resources of the country.

Provide for Three New Teachers, and Equipment of a Gymnasium at the School
tFrom Wednesday's Dally.)
The School Board of Prince Rupert
is not letting the grass grow under its
feet. They are looking ahead and
endeavouring to make provision for the
conditions that will be here within a
very short time. At thc last meeting
of the Board estimates for $15,000 were
submitted and passed upon.
The estimates provide for three more
teachers, two in the public and one in
the high school which it is proposed lo
inaugurate after the summer holidays.
One of the other teachers will have
to be engaged al Easier and the other
in September.
In regard to the high school it is
estimated that by September there
will be from twelve to twenty pupils
qualified for the work of the high school.
For the first year it will be necessary
to carry on the work of the high school
in the new school, and with this idea
in view the Board has provided in the
estimates for three more rooms being
As an earnest of their intention to
look after the physical as well as the
educational side of their charges they
have set aside $1,500 for the installation
of a gymnasium and the proper fixing
up of a playground at the new school.
The secretary of lhe School Board
has been asked to write to Mr. Wm.
Manson as M. P. P. for Skeena, to have
one or two government lots at the
back of Lynch's store placed on reserve
for school purposes, as it is contemplated
in the near future to erect a new school
on that property if possible to accommodate the needs of the children of the
west end.

Vancouver, Feb. 2.���The new C. P.
R. steamer Princess Adelaide which
arrived on this coast only recently, ran
ashore at Apple Tree Point last night
in a blinding snow strom. She grounded
at ton minutes past ten. Immediately
she struck all Was confusion on board.
The weather had been so fierce that
excitement. A few minutes of anxiety
was all they had to suffer, however,
for it very soon became evident that the
vessel had sustained little damage. She
was stuck high and dry on the Point.
Apple Tree Point is about half way
between Seattle and Port Townsend.
A wireless report received later says
that the Adelaide is not damaged but
is resting firmly on the sticky bottom.
The officials are hoping to be able to
float her at high tide.
and supplies. Tin plate, solder and
lead for the salmon cans, boxes, nets
and gear are all included in this amount
which is about the largest ever put
out by the canners of the province for
their business in an "off" season. Thc
tin plate for the greater part is coming
from the old country on the steamers
of the Holt and Weir lines, and will
arrive early in March.
Although some of the canners had
more equipment remaining at the close
of the season last year than was anticipated, on the whole the year's
results were regarded as very satisfactory. This year in the north a heavy
catch is anticipated, although it will
be one of the light seasons for the Fraser
River canneries are now undergoing
overhauling. By the advent of the
fishing season in June they will all be
in readiness for operations. Cannery
hands will be sent north early in April
to prepare the boats, nets and bo forth.
Although a good catch is expected,
none of the companies are preparing
to make additions as they had more
equipment and room last year than they
actually needed.
It was stated yeeterday that the
British Columbia Packers' Association
had purchased about 35 per cent of
the entire amount of supplies and
equipment secured by the entire industry for the coming year.
