Toronto, March 15.���Particulars of
tho proposed big steel plant  for Port
\:   i  arc coming to light.    The nc-
joth-.i.ms  aro  being   conducted   here,
between representatives of the C. N. R.
and the S eel Corporation.
The corporation is tc be capitalized

ecpted f��r locating at Port Mann, they
���  rn commence work on their
lphm  ai   onco,   and   within   eighteen
months huve their plant in running
order.
Water power is to be generated on
a large scale, and the smelting will be
carried on by electricity. Plans and
estimates prepared by the United Engineering and Foundry Co. of Pittsburg
have lieen adopted for the plant.
Last year, British Columbia and the
Pacific Coast States purchased 170,000
tons of steel. The difference in freight
on this of from \2 to 10 cents a ton is
equal to a very good subsidy on the
poutut of the proposed plant.

Why Not a Ladies Art Club.
Prince Rupert is well furnished with
men's clubs, but so far the women's
clubs arc limited to the cultivation of
bridge, five hundred, and athletics.
The latter is a distinct advance, but
the need exists for some club which
will make its appeal for membership
through the common bond of appreciation of the arts.
Nothing quite so ambitious as the
Vancouver Women's Club could be
attempted, but there is a good field for
an organization which would aim to
cultivate the literary and musical tastes,
entertain distinguished lady visitors,
and promote discussion and knowledge
of subjects in which women should
take intelligent interest.
The women's club in Vancouver took
shape owing to a number of ladies
representing the musical, artistic, literary and educational elements of Vancouver as well as the musical profession,
who met together and decided that their
clubless condition was from henceforth
to be a thing of the past.
The original idea was to restrict the
membership, like the Lyceum club in
London to women engaged -professionally in art, (including music and handicrafts,) literature and science. As this
would debar from membership many
women of cultured tastes and activities
along other lines of work who are not
engaged professionally in any form of
art or science, it was decided to make
an addition to the proposed privileges
of thc club. In the constitution adopt
ed the clause relating to membership
reads: "The members shall be women,
elected by the general committee, en
gaged professionally in art, literature,
science, or handicrafts, or whose qualifications for membership shall consist
in an a. live, personal interest in the
welfare, development and educational
progress of women.      "
This drawing together of women of
varied professions and common tastes
cannot but prove extremely beneficial,
particularly in the case of women of
artistic bent, who, in some respects
may be isolated. A glnnce over the list
of charter members shows that there
is already the nucleus of a most interesting club, for Vancouver numbers
among its citizens mnny names well
known in the world of literature and
art.
Thc club declares itself to be non-
political and undenimonational, and
with no intention of undertaking cr-
forms or riding hobbies. Its professed
purpose is to provide "rest, recreation,
and refreshments mental and bodily���
by ringing into existence, a meeting
place for women of congenial tastes.
Apart from the associations the club
will be a convenience to busy women;
a place where one may drop in to rest
in thc midst of a busy day in town;
or partake of luncheon or tea in a
quiet atmosphere, write letters, look
over magazines, etc." For the convenience of women who are busy during the day the club rooms will remain
open in the evening. The reading room
will contain periodicals and in time it
is hoped a good library. When properly
established thc premises will consist of
a reception room, dining room, reading
and writing room, members' room,
dressing rooms, etc. Luncheon and
tea will be served and up to a certain
hour in the evening tea, coffee and
light refreshments.

(Special to the Optimist)
Vierbo, Italy, March 14.���Bloodshed
was narrowly avoided on Saturday
evening session of the murder trial of
the ('amorists. A fierce fight broke
out among the prisoners confined in
the big jury box. Order was restored
by a big force of carbonniers stationed
around the Judge who prevented tragic
results. It is thought the fight was
started as a signal to attack by thc
Camorlst prisoners. At the first sign
of trouble they were shut off from the
siiectators in the front court rooms.

H. H. Morton   -   3rd Ave.
Berlin, March 11.���Through tin- death
of l'uul Singer, who succumbed in his
67th year, to a long complication of illnesses, the German Socialists lose the
second member of the triumvirate that
made their party the wonderful creation it is. The elder Liebknecht passed
away some years ago, and now Herr
Bebel alone is left to tell the tale of
how three and a quarter million voters
were gradually gathered together in
thus country in the cause of universal
nationalization.
Her Singer's strength never lay in
oral..ry. He joined the party as a
prosperous business man, who, in conjunction with his brother had founded
and successfully developed a factory of
ladies' cloaks and mantles, which still
exists, though he was obliged to sever
his connection with it when he was expelled from l'russia in 1886. His commercial experience ripened hus natural
talent for management, and on the
Socialistic junta he proved him.self a
political organizer of thc lirst order.
Hy the exercise of stolid good humor
antl blunt irony he passed triumphant
through ordeals which would have
been too much for a less phlegmatic
temperament. His guiding hand was
sorely missed at the last Socialistic
Congress al Magdeburg.
For twenty-seven years with a break
Herr Singer had sat in the Reichstag
for the Fourth Division of Rerlin, and
at lhe bust elcctiqn he polled 82.0(H)
out of a total of 108,000 votes cast.
Latterly he spoke but little in the Chamber. Only when some ipiestion of
procedure cropped up tlitl he take part
in the debate, and, standing in his place
in the body of the hull, give the House
the benefit of a knowledge and experience of Parliamentary rules and traditions which were universally admitted
to lie unique.
Herr Singer was also a member of
the Berlin city council, and took a keen
Interest in the affairs of this, his birthplace. He was unmarried, and foi
many years his sister kept house, for
him. Since her death he lived with
his brother. Though his services to
Socialism had been inestimable, he hatl
latterly been one of the bulwarks of
Radicalism. Had it not been for the
great personal authority of the members
of the Old Guard, like Rebel, Singer, and
Kautzky, Revisionism would probably
today have thc upper hand in the counsels of German Socialism.

Why Not Call a Conference?
Now that the citizens have been spared the humiliation and expense of having
armed forces brought into the city to further aggravate the strike situation, the
lime has come when steps must be taken to end the strike. It is not in t he interest
either of the men, the    contractors,   nr   the citizens in general that the strike
should continue
Unfortunately the cily council, as being primarily responsible for the strike
are badly handicapped fnr the task nf making a settlement. They have showed
themselves tun weak to cope with the matter effectively at any stage of the proceedings.   Ii is hopeless to expect that they call master the .situation now.
The City Hall press have showed themselves worse than useless at the present
juncture. Though both pa|��-rs by their own confessions were aware of lhe council's
intern ion to bring II. M. C. S. Rainbow hen-, neither bad the good sense and spunk
to expt'se and Stop such a lunatic and costly proceeding. Today, bulb are mud-
slinging their superior,   instead of advising the council tn bring peace to the city.
The contractors and the men cannot very well end the matter, for they are at
present enguged in the hard task uf trying tu starve each Other out.
The whole trouble, from the commencement has been brought aliout by
a pitiful lack of frankness. Tbe council have not been frank with the men;
they have nut been frank wilh the contractors; they have nut been frank with
the ratepayers. Mure than that they have nut been frank with themselves. Nol
one uf the parties knows just exactly where they are.
To waste precious time now in the luxury of mud-slinging and recrimination
is madness, Nothing but a frank hesrt��tO-heart understanding between the various
pittles can bring a speedy peace.
The Optimist suggests that some responsible and disinterested party���the
Board of Trade for instance take immediate steps to end the deadlock by calling
a joint conference nf the council, the contractors and the workingmen. Three
representatives from each, under the chairmanship of the Board of Trade would
do mure in an hour to restore peace than "all the militia in Canada."
Tbe workingmen have evinced hy their admirable conduct during the strike
as well as by their pledge in last Sunday night's meeting the peaceable spirit with
which they are actuated.
It should not be difficult lo bring the parties together, and have the matter
submitted to a fiiirminded and sympathetic board of arbitration.
Notes and Comments
My, ain't it awful, to think that the Optimist has saved the city a bill of $50,-
000 nr so for naval and military expenses.   Has Alderman Newton forgotten the
, experience nf Fort \\ illiam with the military?   Or has he never heard of it?
Must of the squabbles in the world are caused through lack of frankness or
misrepresentation. Most of the squabbles in the world could be settled if the
parties wniil.l gel together and arrive at an understanding. Fur this reason three-
party disputes ate always the mure difficult.
Any conference on the strike is worthless unless representatives of all three
pan les are present. There must Ik- nn mental reservations, nn promises with strings
to them, no secret arrangements, no withholding of confidence. Let everything be
open an.l above board, and have done with pea-nut politics.

GOOD   SAMARITAN   FIRE   CHIEF
Young    Man    Taken     111    is   Very
Efficiently Helped
Yesterday morning Fire Chief Mclnnis
was able lo render very timely aid to
a young man named Green who was
sent to the Ceueral Hospital suffering
from acute internal pains.- He had been
in great pain all night, but did not know
where the hospital was, and had no
friend to tell him. He was alone in his
cabin unable to call anyone's attention,
and at last in distress crawled up and
wandered outside to try and lind help.
He managed to reach the lire hall, and
attracted the attantinn of the Fire
Chief.
The boys saw that the young fellow
was in great pain, and did their best
w il h hot foment at ions and warm blankets
to relieve him. Chief Mclnnis sent
fur Harry's auto car, but as the ear was
not available on the instant, and the
case seemed urgent, he got a rig from
Messrs. Moore Bros., and had the patient hurried out to the hospital where
he was attended by Dr. Eggert.

Pleaded Cue on Merit
A man travelling westward on u
through express, one day bust week,
left his scat in the crowded dining car
just after he had ordered luncheon. He
went to get something he hud forgotten
in the Pullman.
When he returned, in spite of the fuel
that he had left a magazine on the
chair in the diner, hc found a handsomely-
dressed woman in his place. He protested with all thc politeness he could
muster, but the woman turned on him
wilh (lashing eyes.
"Sir," she remarked, haughtily, "do
you know that I am one of thc director's
wives?"
"My dear madam," he responded,
"if you were the director's only wife, 1
should still usk fur my chair."
Too Well Known
"Is the guv-nor in?" asked the visitor.
The office boy, with his chair tilted
back und his legs stretched out upon
the desk, made no reply.
"I asked if the guv'nor was in," snid
the visitor.
The office boy threw him u disdainful
glunce, blew- a cloud of cigarct smoke
down his nostrils, and resumed his
reading.
"Didn't you hear me?" snup|>ed the
visitor.
"O* course, I 'ear you," answered the
office boy, scornfully.
"Then why the dickens don't you
tell mc if thc guv.nor's in?"
"Now, I ask yer," retorted thc office
boy, as he rccrottscd his legs upon the
desk and prepared to resume his rcuding,
"does it look like it?"

WITH JEERS AND CHEERS
THE STRIKERS FIGHT ON
Five Hundred of Them Make a Demonstration
Mclnnes & Kelly's Contract This Morning
���One Man Quit But Two Stayed
at
Three men wont to work this m> rning
on Mi'lmiis & Kelly's Kirst avenue
contract fur wagee Rt the ;IT 1-2 cent
rate. Tho strikers soon heard of It,
ami something like a circus resulted.
The cut is admirably adapted for the
convenient view ��t a large gathering of
spectators, and .he strikers saw to it
that the large gathering was there.
A Natural Thentre
On the high portion Of the reserve
overlooking the cut aliout a hundred
men assembled, Hundreds more swarmed around the other sides of the work,
and away over on First avenue near the
Dominion Hotel from where a good view
of the cut could be obtained another
crowd of some hundreds of strikers
gathered. In fact, stalls, pit, circle,
balcony, and gallery were all filled. It
was a full house.
Crowd Jeered Them
On the stage in full view of the large
audience stood Mr. Mclnnis and his
throe workmen. Like Caesar before
he overcame the Ncrvii, Mr. Mclnnis
exhorted his men to go to it and heed
not the mar of tho mighty populace.
Obediently ihe men began to work.
But they found it hard to work on
under tin* I'usiladc of derision volleying
from half a thousand throats above,
behind, and all iiroinui them.
One Man Qui'.
One fellow hesitated, and furtively
eyed his coat. Wildly the audience
encouraged him. He wavered, then in i
spite of the exhortations of the contractor, he thing down his shovel, put
on his coat and marched oil the job.!
Instantly from the whole crowd of
strikers a mighty cheer went up.
The other two men were affected by
the acion of their comrade, and came
to u standstill. One of them sat down
on a car and began to lid his pipe.
Declined  to Work
"Sit quiet now, and have your photo
taken " cried a wag in the crowd. "Say
you're sick and go home." yelled anot her.
you're sick and go home," yelled another.   "Come up here and yell for me.
I'll pay you ten dollars an hour, here's
the money," shouted a third man
wildly waving a roll of hills.
Mr. Mclnnis stood hy thc man telling
them to get down to it and pay no
attention to the yells, but both men
were rather chary of starting again.
Noise, they admitted would tlo them
no harm but they expressed doubts
about thc duration of the noise. From
jeers to threats, from threats to blows
are short steps they thought.
Police Were Sent For
By this time in response to messages
sent by Mr. Mclnnis Sergeant Philipson
wiih three constables arrived. The
sergeant was not inclined to interfere
too vigorously with the strikers. So
far no violence has been used, anil he
contented himself wii h ��� arning i he crowd
against violence. Ky and by the strikers
dispersed as there was no attempt on
the pan of Mclnnis' iwo men to take
up their shovels again.
Mr. Mclnnis is disappointed thai men
cannot lie g. t to work in spile of the
comments of the strikers, and looks
to the police to keep the contract
clear. As long as the strikers do not
touch the workmen or their tools,
however, it is doubtful if tie police can
do more than they are doing.
Only Three Stand Out
There are only three contractors
standing out against the 45 cent rale,
as L. Vuckavitch has withdrawn from
his contract, and Pan Boscovitch has
taken up his share of the partnership
in it lo carry on the work at the 45
cent rate which Vuckavitch refused to
pay except to a small number of employees. Dan Boscovitch this morning
staled that he was to start up with
from fifteen to twenty-five men tomorrow.
By tl.e Prince Rupert this morning
a number of laborers arrived and were
mei by members of the P. R. I. A.
with the usual mild demonstration.
The newcomers were escorted up Centre
street, and given full particulars of the
situation in regard to labor in town
Their presence is not likely to affect
the position one way or the other.

LAST YEAR
UAL ESTATE OWNERS IN
Western Canada
$100,000,000
From the most accurate figures ob-
tainalile. over One Hundred Million
Dollars was made hy 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 lnnd
values alone.
Original records gathered by the
Winnipeg l-'ree Press prove that in
eight western Canadian Cities the value of land alone ���not counting improvements- Increased BOB per cent, for the
last live years an annual increase of
112 per cent, for each city during the
Inst five years. These figures indicnte
that investments in live, growing cities
in Western Canada nre as safe and
sure as an investment can be, and that
100 per cent, profit each year is almost
a certainty.
THIS YEAR
THKV WILL tNliotHTEl>LY   MAKF.  $100,-
000,0(KI   MORE

Points nnd well located cities and

The Grand Trunk Pacific does not offer townsitos or ndditions so located as

Daily Messages From
"UNCLE JERRY"
No. 14
A friend, for who but a friend would
do it, told me yesterday that somebody
in town called me a faker. Well,there
is one thing worse than be called a
faker and thnt is to be one.
I realize the impossibility of telling
personally everyone of what 1 came
here to do, or what I am doing. I take
therefore, this means of telling you if
you do not know yet.
1 came here to engage in the real estate business. That is, 1 buy and sell
real estate in Prince Rupert, 1 leaBe
business property, 1 sell leases on business property, I undertake to rent
houses, I buy and sell outside property,
1 sell lots in a number of good towns on
the Grand Trunk Pacific; incidentally I
make money nml my clients are maki'ng
money.
Besides all these good deeds I am
boosting Prince Rupert. I am telling
millions of people in Canada und the
United States about Prince Rupert
Opportunities. I am using advertising
space in some forty American newspapers and some twentv-Iivo in Canada.
And I am paying for it myself, too. I
know that lots of people are interested
in Prince Rupert from the inquiries I
get by every mail. Thev don't come
straggling in, they pile iii by hundreds.
Some of these inquirers w:nnt to buy
land, some want lots, others want to go
m business. If you have something,
or know of something, that thev want
better tell me about it. Mv business
is getting people together, one with
the opportunity antl the other looking
for it. I'll be glad to tell you how to
do it.
