TRAGEDY OF Ti
tm.      thtrnrn
A NORTH-WEST MOUNTED PATROL
PERISH AFTER HEROIC STRUGGLE
Lost in the Arctic Rockies They Wandered from December 22nd Till  January  18th���
After Great Torture the Little Band Died of Starvation���Relief Expedition
of Dawson Police Found Their Dead Bodies Near Fort MacPherson
Only a Day's March from Home---Inspector  Fitzgerald
Constables Carter, Kinney and Taylor Victims
(Special to Optimist)
Dawson, Apr. 18���Inspector F.
G, Fitzgerald and three men of
the Northwest Mounted Police
missing since .January Uth when
they shoultl have arrived at
Dawson, are all dead. They
died after one of the most heroic
st rubles ever recorde.l in the
history of Arctic expeditions by
tlwRN. W. M.P. Their hodies
have just been found on the
hanks of the Peel River not far
smith of Fort Macpherson where
they died of cold and starvation.
The names of the men ure:
F. G. Fitzgerald
Constable Carter
Constable Kinney
Constable Taylor.
Made Brave Struggle
On December 22nd the party
left Fort Macpherson for Dawson with three dog teams.   They
intended to make the Peel River
Pass through the Rocky Mountains, but the weather was severe
antl stormy, and the party failed
to lind the pass. Sticking doggedly to their task they struggled day after day tb make the
crossing of tlie mountains, and
fought with the snow-storms un-
availingly until January 18th
when they were still only at the
head of the Wind River.
Tiny Remnant of Food
Now they realised that they
wen- baffled, and taking stock of
their provisions found that they
hail liii only it'ii pounds ol' Hour,
eight pounds nl bacon, ami a few
tlrietl i\j>li. They were two hundred
and fifty miles from Kurt Me- j
pherson. They began the journey
back to their starting point.
StHin the meagre remainder of
the provisions nave out. One by
one the dogs were killed and
eaten.    There were fifteen ���>( lliein
in the three teams. They were
all eaten, but still the party was
far from refuge, and the men were
gr<>\\inj; weaker and making but
painful progress. There was nothing (<> eat at all now except buckskin thongs. They ate these, and
gnawed the very harness in the
lasi pitiful light for life.
Struggled to the End
Still struggling on the Btarving
men Buffering terribly from cold,
battled to the very lasl. Only
thirty-five miles from Fort Mac-
phcrson cold ami starvation conquered. All four tlietl together.
The stronger men hatl evidently
dragged the weaker with them
in the utterly forlorn hope of
saving lheir lives.
Relief Party Too Late
On January 1-1 lb when the parly
was expected in Dawson some
Peel Indians tame in wilh news
lhat    lhe    men    hatl    been    seen
heading for Dawson mi New Year's
Day. A relief parly was organised
by the Dawson police. It consisted of Corporal Dempster, as
leader, Constables Fyfe and Turner, antl an Indian named Charley
Stewart. The relief party It'll
on February 28th. On March
'J 1st the bodies were fount) thirty-
five miles from Fori Macpherson.
Ihey were taken to that station
antl buried.
Made Fast Travelling
That the relief parly made lhe
journey very quickly is shown
by their time for the round trip
io fori Macpherson antl back,
ll took them just forty days to
make the trip. They recovered
the Hcrschel and Macpherson mail
i which the lost parly hatl not
j abandoned. They also brought
the news ihai Sergeant Sclig who
had charge of ihe police at I lerechel
hatl died of throat trouble.
SKEENA RUN
IS ALTERED
River     Fleet     to     Berth     at
Kitselas
TRAIN SERVICE
Preparations Made for Heavy
Inland Traffic This Season.
Three Boats Will Continue to
Run as Formerly.
This season the headquarters
of Messrs. Foley, Welch & Stewarts fleet of river steamers will
In- Kitselas. There can be no
doubt thai the (irand Trunk Railway will be running a regular
service of trains between Prince
Kupert ami Kitselas by the time
navigation of the Skeena opens,
hut there will be plenty for the
steamers to do beyond this point.
There will  be  traffic  still  by
water between Rupert antl Hazelton, lor lhe Hudson Hay Co.'s
Bteamers, Haselton ami Port Simpson, and also the Inlander, will
continue to make the full trip as
before.
Indications point to a season
ia  lhe interior  that  will   tax  the
resources of both ihe 100-mile
Stretch of railway anil the si|tiad-
ron of vessels. It is confidently
expected by all residents of the
norlh that this year will be one
of the busiest ever experienced
by the Skeena River district.
The steamers, many of which
liave been lying at Prince Rupert
during lhe winter, are now being
overhauled ami placed info shape
for the approaching season.
Between Kitselas and Hazelton
heavy traffic is certain to originate,
ami between these points the river
boats will do the work that the
railway is not yet in a position
lo do. There will untloliietlly
he a heavy sleanibo.it travel between the present end of steel and
the interior towns.
At present it is difficult to
ascertain what dale lhe companies
will commence operation, but as
near as can be estimated from tlie
present indications along the river
the Foley, Welch & Stewart vessels will be running by the 1st
of May. The preparations for a
coming season were never commenced as early in the year or as
vigorously as ihey have been ibis
season,   which   signifies   lhat   the
companies  expect   an   enormous
amount of business.
LABOR FOR
CANNERIES
Steamer Senator Chartered to
Bring Recruits
A THOUSAND EXPECTED
Preparations Now in Full Swing
for Opening of Salmon Packing Season Which Promises
to Be a Busy One.
Salmon packers are seriously
considering the prospect of a labor
shortage thisseason, and the steamer Sena lor has been chartered to
make a trip to Honolulu to bring
back 1000 laborers for the northern
canneries,   along the Pacific Coasl.
Chinese and Japanese laborers
are    principally    looketl    for,    bill
laborers of oilier nationalities ate
engaged. Only lasi week the
Pacific Mail Steamer Korea calling
at Honolulu on her way io San
Francisco, brought about 300 Port-
Ugucse, Filipino, ami Russian laborers   who  were   seni   north   by
one of ihe packers' association
boats,
A busy salmon season is ex
pec ted, but no unusual develop
ment of this important industry
will take place this year. Large
shipments of tin are arriving now
continually, anil preparations are
in progress for lhe rush of work.
WE POLICE HELPED TO FIND "DADDY"
Her propellers kicked up the
foam as the S. S. Princess May
swung sideways into the ('.. T. I',
wharf yesterday afternoon. Captain MacLeod, with a complexion
like a ripe filbert caused by a
thousand north coast zephyrs gave
orilers to his men lo swing the
gangplank so that the passengers
lor I'rince Rupert could disembark.
A Pretty Picture
The purser, in a uniform covered
with much gold braid, saw that
his charges were safely landed.
He spoke a kindly word to the
children and gave a hand to help
them when occasion demanded.   A
hundred or so olive complexloned
foreigners with all sorts and conditions of baggage crossed the
plank, a half hundred or so well
dressed first class passengers were
landed.    Last of all came a neat
little woman with a healthy five
year old boy clinging to her
skirts tm one side and a dimpled,
curly haired, brown eyed, three
year old girl clinging to the other
side of mammy's skirls, ln her
arms she carried a liny piece of
pink and white innocence, a three
months oltl baby.
"Where s Daddy ?"
A mother and baby would soften
lhe   heart   of   a   Sphinx,   so   no
wonder that purser, stewards, hard
handed   .seamen    and    passengers
rushed to offer assistance to the
mother. They were permitted to
give an eye to the toddling boy
ami girl bill lhe liiolher would
nol trust the baby out of her
arms. She crossed thc gangplank
ami gazed wistfully along the
wharf evidently looking for somebody. He was nol there, 'lhe
iwo kiddies looketl ud intQ_iL
face lhat was near them. The
boy said, "Where's daddy, mama?"
and she answered quietly, "He'll
'ie here in a minute, son, cheer
up."
A Haven of Safety
A minute then several minutes
passed and daddy did not come.
The mother ami children were
still Standing on the wharf strangers, nol knowing where lo go
or what lo do. There was a
concerted rush to lhe mother's
sitle. A young slewartl won out

Rich Mineral Resources of River
Impress Traveller
HAZELTON IS GOOD
Opening of Grand Trunk Railway so Far This Season Mean
Vast Increase in Present Development.
Evidence of the splendid impression made upon visitors by
lhe vast mountainous mining llislrict of British Columbia around
Hazelton ami northwards is continually coining lo light in the
London newspapers. Every tribute
paid to this great district is a
boost  for  Prince  Rupert,  lhe key
10 ihe interior.
Great Mining Activity
A writer to the London Times,
just returned from a visit lo the
IL ('. mining districts says of thr
Northern section:
'('.real mining activity was evident on all sitles, and some of lhe
men were making on the average
from 12s (o His a day panning.
Hul the goltl was purely alluvial,
and the creeks require to lie
followed to ascertain lhe existence
of the actual deposits of ore.
Rich Strikes at Hazelton
"At Hazelton numerous rich
strikes of ore were related, especially on Nine Mile mountain. The
minerals were gold, galena, silver,
and copper for the most part, both
high and low grade, in hard milling
rock. Ai present operations can
not he carried io a very definite
conclusion. Inasmuch as it costs
about twenty pounds per ton lo
bring machinery up from lhe
coast. Hy lhe entl of lhe summer,
however, the (irand Trunk Pacific
Railway will  be carried into the
difficulties  of   transport   will   be
appreciably lessened.
Over 600 Claims Allowed
"The mineral belt extends for
aboul 100 miles soulh of Hazellon.
Sixty miles south two towns have
sprung up ai Telkwa and Alder-
mere, and these, from their strategical positions, will doubtless
prove to be ihe focus of industry
A smelter is already projected at
ihe former town on a Hat fringing
the Hulkley River. The Hal lines
are twelve miles distant on the
easl, ami ihe Cascades about the
same distance on the wesl. The
whole country was overrun with
prospectors. The deputy mining
recorder reported thai up to ihe
lime of the writer's visit over 800
claims had been allowed by
government, and the extensive
collection of ores of all descriptions which he displayed siib-
stantiaietl the reports lhat were
advanced regarding the mineral
richness of the district.
Hudson Bay Mountain
"Eleven miles northwest of Telkwa ia s massive peak. Hudson's
Hay Mountain, which has been
staketl from fool to crest, though
onlv one prospect has been developed so far owing to the transport difficulties. This is a rich
galena ami silver deposit, lhe
gailery having been driven in and
the solitl vein of mineral tappetl.
The mine, it is hoped, will be
brought lo lhe producing stage
this. year. French ami German
engineers were in lhe country, and
iheir mission was obvious, bill tht
Hritish ambassador of commerce
was absent."

SEAMAN INJURED
FATALLY INJURED IN
A MOTOR CAR SMASH
Sad Accident to Henry Selfridge  the  Famous Anglo-
American Merchant���His Family Escaped
Injuries by a Miracle But He
Will Probably Die
(Special to the Opiimist)
London, Lug., April 17.   -Henry
Selfridge,  the Chicago merchant
who opened a large departmental
store in London on the American
business plan, is lying at death's
tloor as the result of serious injuries received in an automobile
accident in Westmoreland on Saturday. The machine, a big six
cylinder louring ear, was going
down hill al a gootl clip when the
brakes failed. 'Ihe big gasoline
juggernaut careered down the hill
wilh Mr. antl Mrs. Selfridge antl
their two children shrieking in
terror and the chauffeur doing
his best to deter the machine.
At   the  bottom  of  the  hill   the
tar ran into a stone house with
terrific force ami hurled the five
occupants into a neighboring field.
Mrs, Selfridge, ihe children anil
ihe chauffeur escaped without injury in some marvellous way.
Besides concussion of the brain
Mr. Selfridge has other injuries.
Henry Selfridge opened a tremendously large departmental
store in London in lhe latter part
of 1908. The store is a palatial
building on Oxford street and is
the only store of its kind in England. It has proven a success
in every way ami English people,
though they did not take kindly
to il at first, soon became converted to the new order of things.

Seattle Merchants are Growing Japanese in Jail   Here   From
Very Uneasy Naas Harbor
THEY WANT ALASKA
Fear That When the G. T. P. is
Linked up That the Trade of
Alaska Will All be Done
Through Prince Rupert.
Seattle merchants are very uneasy aboul the probable diversion
of the Alaskan trade through the
Prince Rupert channel via the
(irand Trunk Railway. Already
there has been even Suggested
that Alaska may make overtures
for linking herself with Canada
for the greater development of
her resources, and the idea is by
no means disapproved of by those
who most believe in the prospects
of the Northwest irrespective of
territorial considerations and tarill
barriers.
Realising this Seattle business
men anxious to preserve the trade
of their own cily, are more ready
lo cultivate Alaska than they
have been formerly.
Messrs. Maurice I). Leehy, J.
L. Steele and II. R. Harrison addressing the Seal tie Coiliin rit al
Club said lhat committees shoultl
form a bureau to supply information to the country at large
of Alaska, a particular needs at
present and to aid in snipping a
plague of wildcattiiig of Alaskan
mining stock that is spreading
through the Last.

THE COMEDIAN OF ANTI-RECIPROCITY
According to Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper, Canada is in greai
danger of becoming rich if she agrees in reciprocal trade with her
neighbors to the souih. According to Sir Charles this is a terrible
state of affairs.*j "Let ns not be led away bj the lure of gold. Lcl
us come oul fairly in the open and declare thai wc are ready to sink
or swim under the <>M flag and under the King ol the greatest Empire
the world has seen," he urged a large audience al Vancouver lusl
week.
tm___\Jp to date, however, there has been no marketl diminution in
the efforts of the Vancouver folk to make money, or anj greal rush
to Windsor to perform the feats of natation to which Sir Charles invited his audience, After cheering at the mention of thc grand old
tl.ig the audience went about its business, which is nol unconnected
with the quest for gold.
Previously in the evening, the anti-reciprocity orator had wh
his audience that he was not there to discuss the question from ilu
standpoint of dollars and cents, but from "the loftier standpoint t
Canadian nationalism." As though tlie reciprocity question can
he anything else but a question of dollars and cents, and as though
Canadian nationalism like the nationalism of everj other nation
does not depend on the successful economic organization of the people,
In shirking a discussion of the reciprocal trade question from the
standpoint of dollars and cents, and appealing instead to thc people
of Vancouver to stand by the grand old flag, Sir Charles confessed
his inability to deal with the question,
Any woman going to her butcher to inquire why mutton chops
have gone up five cents a pound would bc satisfied ii thc butcher saitl
wiih line dignity: "Madam, I will not discuss this question from thc
low standpoint of dollars and cents.   Let us nol be led away by the
lure of gold.   Let us tome out fairly in the open and declare that
we are ready to sink or swim under the old flag, and uniler the King
of the greatest Empire the world has seen."   And the reciprocity
question is just a question of whether or no a reduction shall be made
in the price of mutton chops and other articles of food, by the removal
of the tax on them.   In the case of cattle thc reduction is 28 per cent.
Twenty-live per cent off the butcher's hill is a mailer of dollars ami
cents, not a mutter of flag waving.   The removal of 20 tents a bushel
tax on the potatoes which go with the meal is likewise a mailer o|
dollars and cents.   Antl so with every one of the hundreds of articles
on which it is proposed to either reduce or abolish the taxes.
Between  the  two kinds of  patriotism    lhe kind  lhal   aims  to
make f I plentiful and cheap, and the kind lhat believes in yelling
to the common people lo keep both hands on the Union Jack, there
is a wide difference. There is no doubt which is thc more essential
to the building up of a great nation.

FEAR AN UPRISING
Turkish   Authorities  Fear  the
Albanian Soldiers
Saturday the greatest event   in
the annual spoiling calendar
took place-- the lirst game of tht
major league baseball season. To
the uninitiated reader, this ah-
iiotinceineiil is of no special significance, but to the "dyed-in-the-
wool" fan it rivals in importance
the proclamation of war.
It means the democratic hob-
nobering of bootblacks and bankers
bartenders and brokers; the visual
appearance of small boys' idols;
and a liberal interchange of the
currency of the realm.
But the opening of the baseball
season has slill another deeper,
darker side���a side which brings
sorrow lo the thousands of happy
homes, makes prevaricators of
hitherto perfectly honest men, and
causes a dearth ol office boys
which threatens to bring business
to a standstill to wit, the death
of grandmothers,   This summers'
loss of the dear oltl ladies has long
been   viewed   as  a  season   which,
rivals
^^^^^^^^^^^^^ superannuated females that it is estimated upon competent authority,
that something like 40,000,000
succumb annually.
Then there is lhe "bug" whose
hedgehog is the home team. This
man starts his spring wilh the
exodus of the clubs for the South
and gradually sheds garment after
garment as they work north, till
ai last lie will appear on his
way io the opening game without
an   overcoat,   possibly   wilh   his
coat   unbuttoned,  anil  will  swear
by all ihat he holds sacred thai
summer is here.
Still   another   victim   of   lhat
puzzling disease,  'lanilis,'
usually remembers ihe day thc
game was invented, anil familiarly
calls by name lhe man who firsl
improved horse-hide by surrounding    ball with ii.
Then, too, there is the family
man- the office-bound, hard-working married person whose only
acquaintance wiih the game is
through ihe newspaper reports;
man who will look wistfully
out of lhe office window, bands in
puckcts, ami pen behind ear, and
wonder how "(he game's goin"';
man who will go home to his
fanily, bail in his quota of fodder,
and lose himself in the sporting
page until brought i��, |jft. |)y |lis
ll'ctter half, who demands lo know
"What he str, i��� ,|ut _\_ |,a!H.[)a||
anyway," ami who will then retire
f'��r the nighi and dream of the
happy days when fifty cents wasn't
such a greai amount and be could
occasionally kill a relative and see
a game.
But aside from all these queer
kmks ami lunis -,f human nature
.,hi" the season will disclose there
is lhe vast army of fans, who, at

An important detail for dress
for the spring arid slimmer is the
bag which cti.nai.is vanity box,
handkerchief, purse, visiting cards
and many oilier irilles dear to the
feminine heart. It is quite evident
that old pictures and fashion hooks
have been searched to evolve
many of these hags, made as lhe)
are of pieces of old brocade, of
embroidered silks, satins and velvets hound with gold or silk cord.
They all have long loops of cord
by which they are carried slung
over the arm or fastened to the
belt at the side.
They can be of these bits of old
material or can he fashioned of

To wear with linen frocks there
ire most attractive ones with

It does not require a large piece

remnants brings lo light many
treasures of brocade and exquisite
embroidery worked many, many
years since which are new of great

Temple to be erected this spring
Ofl Fraser avenue. The building
will be of tWO stories, :i(ix4(), and
occupy the centre of two lots.
The plans call for an exceptionally
well-finished building which can
be enlarged as occasion requires.
The home of the first Masonic
lodge in lhe Cariboo will relied
unusual credit on that great fraternal organisation, the influence of
which is world-wide.
For the Presbyterian Church a
site has been secured on Cassiar
avenue, near Hammond street, in
the same block as the Manse, and
for these lots clear deeds are held,
so that all money raised will go
directly to the building and equipment.
One feature of the building will
be provision of rooms for men's
work, a free reading room, to be
open at all hours, a writing room
and a recreation room.
While it is being undertaken
>y the Presbyterian Church, it
is understood that the buildings
will be available, so far as possible,
for all denominations who may
wish to use it, until the growth of
the town makes other church
buildings necessary.

of the Hudson Ray property,
pending the completion of the

Well km'un men with interests
in Prince Rupert and several
of the southern coast cities are
cxpecdng the arrival within a
few days ol the agents of British
and Pittsburg capitalists who arc
looking for n siie on the l'acilic
Coast for the establishment ol
a great steel plant. It is the
announced intention of these agents
to investigate the advantages of
the various likely points on the
mast from the north to the south.
They will visit I'rince Rupert.
While American business men
are anxious ih.u the plan! or
plants be established on United
Mates territory, the interests of
Prince Rupert iu the matter nre
considerable. The absolute certainty that Prince Rupert i- the
most advantageously situated port
on the whole l'acilic Coast is
certainly not overlooked by the
business world, ami the advance
agents of Eastern and European
capital dare nol miss lhe (',. T. 1'.
terminus on iheir visits to the
l'acilic Coast,
It is known that the decision
io build an iron antl steel foundry
<ui this coasl is the result of Judge
C. H. Ilaiifonl, of ihe United
States disirici court of Seattle,
who ruled that the coal claims
located in the Kyak district ol
Alaska are legal. The fuel question
i) is said, was all thai was holding
ihe capitalists back and after
ihe Hanford decision ihey instructed iheir agents to begin
active work at once ill the selec-1
lion   of  a  siie.     The  coal   fieldsi
which will be opened consists
.'.Ion acres, staked under the
Alaska mining laws of 1904.
Already Alaska is looking towards Prince Rupert as the most
convenient distributing point for
her tratle of all kinds, and the fact
lhal Seattle is also watching I'rince
Rupert from a different point of
view is significant.
No one can doubt that with
coal easily and cheaply shipped
into lhe port, and iron ores as
easily conveyed, while the commercial finished product of the
steel plant can lie sent worldwide by the shortest sea route to
ilu- Orient, and the easiest rail
grade to the East ami Europe,
Prince Rupert stands with her
advantages right in the limelight
when capital goes a-seekillg a site
lor industry in this line as well as
in a thousand Others.

Pc!ic2 to the Rescue
It was learned that the lady,
Mrs. Findlayson, had come from
Vancouver to join her husband
here, a stationary engineer. She
iii I nol know where he was. lie
was to meet her, she said.
Then some one rang up the
polite and Chief Vickers lost no
time in hustling Constables Man-
sell and McArthur to go ami
find that family a good place to
May at. The two officers went
to Little's place. They told the
mother the object of their visit
and   she  was  grateful   for   their
help.
Now both these young officers
are single men. Hut you would
never have thought so had you seen
how they acted. Mansell took
the baby from the mother in his
strong arms and the tot didn't
register any objection. She COOed
softly, pushed her soft tiny feet
into bis khaki coat and Mansell
unloaded all kinds of "didums"
then, just like an experienced parent.
McArthur took the little fellow
and his sister in low, one in each
hand. Mother, officers and kiddies starletl Up the .-treet. It
was a line sight, that procession
and the little travellers were in
high glee. Finally the officers
found them room in the Talbot
House and Mr.-. Findlayson and
her family were told not to worry.
Father Had Left Town
Then the officers started out
to find the father and husband.
He had left the city they learned
but not before making provision
for his little family. Ile had gone
as engineer to a tannery up lhe
Skeena, a gootl position, antl had
written to his wife before he
went telling her what lo do when
she arrived here. She left before
the letter reached her. Mr. Findlayson as a further precaution bad
left word with a friend that his
wife was coming and ibis friend
was in un her a furnished cottage
was ready for her on Fraser street
and also to give her an envelope
with some money in it. She went
to the collage. It was comfortable and homelike. Another
letter from her husband told her
he wotilil send (or her as soon .impossible.
All Ends Happily
Constables Mansell antl McArthur, Chief Vickers, Arthur Little Ramsay, and a few others
are richer today by a mother's
blessing, a priceless thing, anil
