ruffled House with watchful mien,
standing ready to move the closure
after each amendment had been spoken
to. One by one the debates on amendments were closured and voted down,
while more amendments were forthcoming.
In the heat and excitement angry
voices were raised, and personalities
freely hurled back and forth across the
House. Then followed challenges and
Upraised fists. The House became a
bear-garden, with the Speaker struggling with gavel and rules of order to
maintain the dignity of the House.
At length after nineteen hours of
debate, the revenue bill was forced
through. The opposition tactics had
failed. A sleepy-eyed House will meet
again today and proceed with the debate on the Lords' Veto bill.

Shall Cake be Abolished, |
In the New York Sun is an article!
supposed to be the outpouring of a|
man's heart on the subject of cuke.
This supposiitous man professes to
be passionately fond of cake- net, as
the reader sees, f the more economical variety such as gingerbread, plain,
"ria cake," and the like, but the expensive and more tempting kinds which
are lovingly named, as almond, angel's,
citron, chocolate, cup. caramel, coffee,
cocoanut, election, fruit, sponge cake
and the like, not to go through the
whole list. TMs supposed man complains thut women no longer make cake,
that they profess not to care for it
themselvc-s; never eat it, and therefore
will not make it. This may be so in
some places, but the love of cake still
lingers in the land, und the notable
housewife still cherishes the recipes
handed down to her hy her mother-
perhaps, her grandmother���and glories
in the an. For it is an art to make good
cake.
It used to be said thai so and so had
"a good han at cake," and it was always considered a compliment. Many
women still remain proud of their
skill, und love to exhibit it. Cuke plays
its part in romance even at this late
day. What is Christmas and New-
Year without their appropriate cakes?
What, for that matter, is any feast day?
And if cuke is no longer popular, why are
there cake sales to further the financial condition of the parish? Why do
pious and hard-working ladies spend
precious hours making cakes of thc
kind that melt in tho mouth, if then-
is no demand for these confections?
Let no one believe that the appreciation
of cake will ever perish as long as good
cake-makers exist. And pray why
are there so many pages devoted to
recipes for cakes in all the ao-cidled
women's magazines und household companions? Simply to provide new recipes for those that long for them. It
is slander to say that wc have ceased
to be a cake-eating people.

Caring for a Bureau
Thc girl who has a handsome mahogany bureau has often much trouble
to keep ita top from being injured by-
water ur scratched by some of the
innumerable little thinga that are laid
on a bureau.
The dillicully is the same whetl er
the bureau is one of the charming old
ones that belonged to her grandmother
or great-grandmother or a modern
one with a line piece of mahogany for
the lop. In either case it soon loses its
smooth and perfect finish hy use.
This may be prev ntcd by covering it
wilh a piece of clear glass and still the
beautiful grain of the wood is plainly
seen. Th" glass should be cut the
exact lhapt of the bureau, and il may
have a tiny frame of mahogany fastened on it which fiU over the edge of
the bureau. Or, instead of the wooden
frame, a girl can finish the edge lur-
self by gluing on a binding of heavy
narrow ribbon, just as passe partout
framing is done. One edge of the ribbon is glued on one side of the glass
and then it is turned over the edge
of the glass and glued down on thc
other side. Great care must be taken
to have the edge of the glass come
exactly in the middle of lhe ribbon
and nt. the corners the ribbon must be
carefully mitred.

SCOLDS    THAT    COMIC    OPERA
CONGRESSMAN IN SPEECH
Says that the Annexation Resolution
Was Introduced in a Mean Spirit
with the Object of Causing International Estrangement.
Bangor, Maine, March 9. President
Roosevelt who is on a lecture tour
here fervently denounced the action
of CongTeaaman Bennett in introducing
the annexation resolution. He madi
three speeches before large audiences
and in the last of them warmly nd-
vocated the proposed reciprocity trade
agreement with Canada and scored
congressmen who he said were responsible for hindering the confirmation of
the agreement, by means of "annexation
scare."
"I am sure you share with mc," hc
said, "the feeling of profound disapprobation for those members of Congress who have indirectly soight to
bur lhe path, not only to the proposed
reciprocity agreement, but to bar the
path to good feelinu between us and
Canada, by introducing in Congress
resolutions pretending to look toward
the annexation ot Canada.
"I say pretending because those resolutions obviously were introduced in bad
faith.
"And they were introduced in what
I must call a very mean spirit, the
desire to do petty mischief to people in
one's own obuntry with whom they disagree politically ai the moment hy caus-
in a possible serious estrangement and
mi .understanding in the foreign relations of this country with a friendly
power.*'

Mining    Boom    for    Hazelton    Will
Bring Good Business
Passengers returned on the Prince
Rupert this week report that Vancouver
und Victoria seem to be pretty much
alive to the importance of the great
Hazelton mining district now thai the
Grand Trunk Pacific has announced
its intention of building a len mile
span from Hazelton to Nine Mile
Mountain.
The good showing made by the Lead
King and Silver Cup on their shipments
to the Trail smeller have stimulated
mining interest.
Local brokers say then1 have been
i-uito a few inquiries in the past week
and with thc prospect of an early
stampede up the Skeena, Prince Rupert
business men look for a busy spring.
Martin O'Reilly will send a representative up to Hazelton to look over the
business chances soon.
The Sloan Clothing Company started
their representative up the river a
month ago.
H. H. Morton also has a man out for
him.
The Brin Furniture Company established a branch in Huztltnn last fall.
Many other local business men have
signified their intention of taking the
first boat up to prepare for the up-river
business.

A Vancouver Opinion.
(Vancouver Sunset)
That an overwhelming majority for a government does not tend to the furtherance of the institution of responsible government has been abundantly demonstrated in the sitting of the legislature just closed.
The attitude of the Premier and bis colleagues has limply been that of a body
of men who think tbey know belter what is good for the publie than the --eople
who elect them. The government, in face of the clearly expressed wishes of Vancouver, and South Vancouver, has flatly refused to pass the required enabling
legislation for annexation. The reaaoni given are entirely Inadequate and disingenuous. Nobody puts much stock in the reasons put forward by the Premier.
His excuse that he did not think public opinion in i hose municipalities was in favi r
of annexation would be hooted if made from a platform In either Vancouver or
Soull. Vancouver, even if made by the Premier bims.lf, just ils H. EL Watson's
statement that BO per cent of the peO| le Of these cities support the government's
action was hissf-d frum the gallery of the Houm'. If Premier McBride is so cocksure ol his position let him and Mr. Bowser and Mr. Watson meet the publie of
this city on the platform und defend their action. If they have the courage to face
an audience either in South Vancouver or Vancouver city they will probably get
such a reception as will convince them they are wrong for once.
That political considerations have played a prominent, in fact a predominant,
part In the decision arrived at by the government is now a certainty. Ry annexation Vancouver, as pointed out by tlie Premier, would occupy nearly double its
present territory Mid it would be presided over by Mayer Taylor. Premier Mo-
Bride no doubt bit his ti ague when be let that admission slip out, but it is out.
Hy annexation Vancouver would be entitled to two nu.re Dominion members in
parliament and a redistribution will be made afler the census which will be taken
this summer before the legislature meets again. There is no doubt that Dominion
politics lias played a part in this purely local question.
Premier McBride suggested that the Provincial Health Department would
be at the service of Seu:!-. Vancouver in the solution of the sanitation problem
ol that city. What right has Premier McBride to force his government upon
a municipality'.' Is the municipality of South Vancouver such a ninny it cannot
attend to its own affaire without tl e intervention of some provincial officer. The
provincial government sent its officer lo meddle in tin isolation hospital question
of this city and a nice men he made of it. But this is only a piece with the government's policy and the attitude of both McBride and Bowser toward tbe public.
Bowser's policy ami piaciice is to centralise all powers in the government at Victoria and lo make them vote traps, lie manipulates tl.e hotel licences. His companies act is a vote catcher as well as a trude discrimination. He robs the municipalities of their lire insurance tuxes. Even tbe provii.cii.l police W a vote-nu.king

The Contractors Want to Know
Some of the workmen on strike declare that they have been promised by
the Chairman Of the Property Committee that if the contractors do not give
way, their contracts will be taken from them and finished by day work.
Tlie contractors to whom this is told do not know wbetber to believe the
statement or not. It contrasts so with the assurances of moral support that the
Council gave them. In fighting the demand they believe they arc obeying the
will of the Council, But they would welcome an expression of the Council's
opinion on this point.

Letters to the Editor
He Visited the Council
Sir,���We all hear serious complaints
from various taxpayers that the present
city council has not tackled any of the
important business of the city since
coming into office. Anyone that will
take the trouble to attend a council
meeting will see that the greater part
of the time of the council is taken by
a couple or three aldermen who in
turn deliver long speeches on issues
that a half dozen schoolboys could
settle intelligently in five minutes.
Some men have the gift of saying a
few words with a whole lot of meaning,
but I must say, unfortunately for the
city one of the aldermen is gifted the
ot her way. He says a whole lot of words
without any meaning at all. The only-
point that he is any authority on is
the wickedness of the old council.
There is a character in the School
for Scandal, a busy old woman, very
fond of poking her nose in everybody's
business. When I hear this false alarm
statesman 1 think of her.
Without seeing for yourself.no amount
of imagination could give one an idea
how helpless some of the aldermen
really are on Monday night. One
member made a long speech on tbe
hardships one clause of the Liquor
By-law might work on the hotel men,
namely, "men coming in drunk to the
hotel." After hearing him patiently
the Acting Mayor remarked that if
the alderman would read the clause
he would see that the hotel man was
only responsible for men that he supplied with drink.
Then the 45 cent farce came up for
final consideration.    On this issue the
council  are very  much like the story
of the mun and the ass.    He tried to
please  everybody  and   finally  pleased
nobody and lost the ass into the bargain.
My own opinion is that no work of
iany   importance   will   be   carried   out
I during the tenure of oflice of the present
council.    The   city   wants   a  council
of practical business men without any
:strings on them who will act honestly
and  fearlessly  in  the  interests of the
city and not of individuals.
Yours truly,
"TAXPAYER"

THE   PRINCE   KUPERT   OPTIMIST
Letters to the Editor
In Fairneaa to Alderman Clayton
Alderman Clayton having denied that
he used the words attributed to him
in yesterday's Optimist, during the
debute on the liquor by-law, lhe question
was agreed to be settled by the judgment of a disinterested party. The
following letter is the result of that
decision, from which it would appear
that we read into the alderman's remarks, a meaning not intended by
him.-Ed.
Sir,���Aldermun Clayton and yourself
having referred the controversy over
an editorial in last night's Optimist
to myself for decision. It was in regard
to Alderman Clayton's reputed utterances during the discussion of thc liquor
licence by-law.
Alderman Newton had explained that
he opposed Alderman Clayton's motion
to submit thc 45 cents an hour question
to a plebiscite, on the ground that the
recent campaign was a virtual plebiscite
on lhat question, for their attitude was
well known by the electors and endorsed.
In reply, Alderman CLyton drew
attention to the fact that he and Aldermun Newton had stood shoulder to
shoulder in repudiating Aldermun Mobley's Liquor Licence By-law. He continued. "If our attitude on the 45
cents an hour question was understood
in the campaign, then our altitude
on this question was indeed a very live
issue."
The question under debate at the
time being the change of hours from
11 to 12 o'clock which question Aldermun Newton moved be referred lo
a plebiscite--there might be a natural
inference that on t hat issue Alderman
Clayton declared them to have taken
a stand.
This he quite disavows and explains
that he had in mind only certain other
features in the old by-law which he
had declared that he considered ultra
vires.
Yours truly,
F. W. KERR

This advertisement clipped from the
Boston Post n-ives the story of the
wonderful development now going on
in Canada. Look out for British Columbia. The profits to investors in
Town lots in all Grand Trunk Divisional
and Terminal Points will astound the
world. Buy now. Ask Uncle Jerry
for price lists and full information.
LAST YEAR
HEAL ESTATE OWNERS IN
Western Canada
$100,000,000
From the most accurate figures obtainable, over One Hundred Million
Dollars was made by real estate owners in growing cities and towns of
Western Canada lust 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 Canadinn Cities the value of land alone- not counting improvements��� increased 562 per cent, for the
last five years- an anniril 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 thnt
100 per cent, profit each year is almost
a certainty.
THIS YEAR
THIY WILL IINDOtinTEDLY   MAKE   $100,-
000,000   MORE
You have an opportunity now to
participate in these immense profits by
being.one of the original purchasers of
town lots in the Grand Trunk Pacific
addition to the fast growing Western
Canadian cities, otherwise known as
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Division Points
WATROUS, MELVILLE, WAINWRICHT,
BIGGAR
The Grand Trunk Pacific offers in
these splendidly located, fast growing
Division Points and in the townsite of
Tolield an opportunity for the investor
to share in trie large profits that are
sure to accrue as a result of the rapid
and substantial growth that characterizes Grand Trunk Pacific Division
Points and well located cities and
towns in Western Canada.
The Grand Trunk Pacific does not offer townsites or additions so located as
to make investments in them of questionable value. The object in selling
these lots at the low prices at which
they are offered is to encourage the upbuilding of these cities from which thc
Grand Trunk Pacific will derive vastly
more benefit thin from the sale of lots.
Now is the time to buy. Choice lots
range from $100 upwards on easy payments of 10 per cent, cash and 10 per
cent, a month. You make your purchase direct and secure title from the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
Write for literature and make your
selection while the prices are extremely low and the possibilities unlimited.

Truth must, indeed, be precious when
we use it so sparingly. But an advertisement cannot use truth sparingly.
It is not worth its price or any price
unless it tells the truth. Effective advertising is truthful advertising.
And so unless I was telling you
anything but the truth in these
messages I would do better by going
over to the Optimist, handing them the
money nnd tell them to keep it without
running my ads. The results would be
the same.
To live properly we must be progressive. We must ever go ahead, expand.
We cannot stand still, for when we do
we go back.
Rut human envy is a strong factor.
If one man proves himself more progressive than the rest, the rest is
liable to knock the one just on general
principles.
Strike out and be progressive. Help

We advise everyone to get in the
market this spring and summer. Sell
when you have a profit; buy again.
That's the way to make money. You
can make many times as much money
if you will buy and sell and not hold on
so long to property. All of you put
your shoulder to the wheel and boost-
keep on boosting���that's the way wc
will make a big city.
