CAPT. SEARS IS ARRESTED
ON MANSLAUGHTER CHARGE
Evidence of a Damaging Character Came  to  Light  During  the
Investigation Into the Wreck of the Iroquois---His Trial
Will Take Place on Thursday of this Week
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, April 17.���Thu arrest
for manslaughter of Captain Sears
nf the ill-fated Iroquois, is the
sensational result of the inquiry
into the circumstances of the
wreck held at Sidney during lhe
weekend. Evidence of Buch damaging character was brought to
light during the investigation that
the authorities hatl no other course
open to them.
Face Trial Thursady
Captain Sears will lace his trial
on Thursday. livery cfl'ori is
being made to have the case
decided speedily both for the
captain's sake, and for the sake
of the public using the coastwise
steamer service. Opinion and adverse criticism have lieen voiced
rather strongly of late against the
captain, and the effect of his
examination at Sidney has been
to increase doubt regarding his
actions when the Iroquois sank.
Maintains His Ground
While feeling his position keenly,
Captain Sears still maintains his
assertion that he did all he coultl.
lie considered it necessary for
him to leave in the lifeboat for
assistance. The charge of manslaughter will not alter his statements made at lhe inquiry. Hut
evidence given by survivors does
not support the captain's action
at the moment of danger.

of lhe Rainbow incident and of
lhe battle of Kelly's tut.
Strike Sidelights
A plot had caused lhe battle
of Kelly's cut, said Mr. Shaw.
The working class had been forced
into it to suit powers in thc
political game. Ile hail lieen
himself the victim of another plot,
and there was one brewing now
which he was getting after, but
had nol yet quite unearthed. Ile
thought that lhe ciiy council
hatl bungled badly a fair chance
to preserve peaceable labor conditions when the issue was set
clearly before them by lhe workers.
J. B. King Speaks
A great outburst of cheering
greeted J. li. King, one of the
strikers arrested but now on bail.
His speech was on lhe general
aims of organised labor. Ile was
strong on the abolition of child
labor, the shortening of hours, the
raising of wages and the Standard
of living. He very much regretted
the Kelly's cut affair, but it was
olny by education of the workers
that riots could be prevented, and
his aim was lo educate.

who has just arrived from the

(Special lo thc Optimist)
Seattle, April 17.���"It will be
easier for Alaska's trade to reach
I'rince Rupert than Seattle. Prince
Rupert is the terminus of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
through Canada, and what would
be ihe necessity to come lo Seattle
for railway facilities to the Pastern
markets''"
That is what J. L. Steele said
to the Seattle Commercial club
lhe other day when urging the
formation  of  a  Seattle  chapter
of lhe American Mining Congress
lo   give   intelligent   assistance   to
ihe mining interests of Alaska ami
assure the bulk of Alaska business
lo this cily.
"If reciprocity between the United States and Canada is made a
reality," saitl Mr. Steele, "Seattle
will need lo do more for the people
of Alaska  lo keep lhal  country's
business,
"Alaska's business means more
lo Seattle than thai of China,
lhe Orient or any oilier country.
'The territory's resources have really not been touched and il is up
lo this city lo give every aid to
develop and encourage mining and
other Interests up there."
Seattle is certainly gelling uneasy.

Willi a view to bringing about a
settlement of the strike in the

Mr. Frank Kelly of Mclnnes &
Kelly, talked to matter over with

is said, the Mayor called attention

which means that if the contracts
are not finished within the contract
time a penally of 825 a day will be
enforced.
Mr. Kelly will discuss the matter
with the other contractors and

Douglas, Ariz., April 17.���Watched by everybody in the city,
Ronaldo Diaz, nephew of President
Diaz, made an advance on the
rebel army at Agua Prieta yesterday. He hatl two machine guns
and a thousand men. After two
hours of hard lighting he failed
to gain any advantage ami retired. Several of the bullets during the light reached American
territory and one civilian was
Shot in the head, but not seriously
wounded.
A body of U. S. troops on thc
American sitle were practically
under lire.   Ii is as yet impossible
lo estimate lhe losses in thc
battle.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, April 17.-���The British
Budget, which this year shows a
surplus of twenty-five million pounds is made the occasion for severe
attacks by thc Tory press upon
Chancellor of the Exchequer Lloyd-
George. The accusation is made
that he deliberately made the
taxes far heavier than were necessary to meet the current expenditure. The criticism is being widely
commented upon, for previous British Chancellors have invariably
been praised in ratio of surplus
they have been able lo show.
Is It Revenge,?
In well informed circles the
new tactics are looked upon as
part of a scheme of the landetl
classes to hit back at the man
who hatl placed taxes on thc
unearned increment from land.
Mr. Lloyd-George merely smiles
ami in reply to his critics declares
that there will be plenty of use
for thc surplus in effecting many
social reforms and improvements
he has in view.
Increase in Drinking
Surprising figures are shown in
connection with  the consumption
of litjuor. From the inland revenue returns it is evident that the
consumption of liquor which had
declined after the heavy taxes
were imposed a year ago, has now
revived and shows a remarkably
great increase.

The S. S. Princess May was

A number of passengers arrived
by the Princess May, which went

'Those in peril on the sea felt
considerable concern for the inhabitants of Prince Rupert on
Saturday afternoon when that tremendous gust of wind whirled
lown out of the mountain passes,
and careered through the avenues
if thc city, and not without
reason.
That breeze tlid things. It was
guilty of violence. It had no
proper respect of persons, antl
made unwarrantable assualts on
property. Look at the Optimist

$75,000 Damage Done to Washington Town
(Special to the Optimist)
Seattle, April 17.��� By dynamiting the home of William Johnson
the town of Bethlehem at the head
of Lake Washington was saved
from being wiped out by lire
yesterday.    The fire raged for over
six hours through lines of Wooden
buildings and was not put ou
until 175,000 was done. Seven

didn't    wail    to   have   the   tloor

came through the front plate-

the business department the blustering old buffer went off pell-mell
with all the loose papers he coultl
get hold of, inducting a valuable
bank draft. In his hurry to
escape with it, he knocked over
the bulletin board which he dropped into a chasm near the oflice
door.
Devil Was Alarmed
Not content with this outrage
he tore at the lady's toque, a
pretty little fascinator contrived
in wool. The lady was swift-
handed and .adroitly caught the
flyaway fascinator by the tail and
held on like grim death. Fortunately the tail held, too, and the!
tunalely the tail held, too, and the
toque was saved to fascinate again.
But in lhe scrap tame down the

THE COUNCIL AND THE EXPERT
The proposal of the eit> council to bring the City Enginerr ol
Seattle here at a cosl of $L.\oUU to confer with Engineer Davis upon
the waterworks scheme is being severely criticised by main people,
They take the view thai with an engineer of the high standing of
Colonel Davis it is unnecessary to call in an "insider. The fee
representing more than at year's earnings in many a citizen- looks
excessive to them lor the service to be rendered,
This attitude i.- rather a penny wise ami pound foolish one. Indeed
had it noi been that the matter was all arranged at a secrei meeting
it is unlikely that any criticism woultl have been offered. Remembering
the Rainbow incident the citizens are suspii ious of ihe council's secrei
meetings, tearing lhat as in the case of the Rainbow the council arc
contemplating enormous expenditures without cause.
Taken as a fee for an expert engineer of high standing the amount
S2,,r)U()i.-, nol large. Fees len times greater have been paid under similar
circumstances in ihe large cities. Against a contemplated expenditure
of nearly 1500,000 the lee is not large. He woultl be a poor consulting
engineer who could not suggest methods which woultl save thc cily
the amount of ihe fee many times over.
Even should the expert be unable lu BUgge8l .1 -ingle improvement
on the plans of lhe tin engineer.-, it will be worth the amount of the
fee to have the assurance of the expert ihai everything in the proposed
plan is feasible, practical ami economical. The city owes it to Coloni I
Davis not 10 leave him to shoulder ihe entire responsibility lor ihe
success of the waterworks scheme.
While the expert is here, it is the council's duty to obtain in his
report a statement on the relative merits 1,night by experience of having
such works carried oul by contract or by day labor, ll is also time
that Mayor Manson responded to ihe invitation to enlighten the
citizens un the means whereby he proposes to finance the waterworks
scheme now ihai the city's borrowing power will be reduced by the
proposed reduction in the G. T. I', assessment.
HOW TO HELP PRINCE RUPERT
Ditl it ever occur to you ihat when you semi away from Prince
Rupert for your goods you are helping to keep lhe lown back' What
is it that makes a town prosperous or otherwise? The answer is
business!
What makes a cily grow; what makes real estate valuable!''
Business! Many stores mean business, increased value for every
business lol and every residential lol as well.
Sending away fur yuur good* builds up gome oilier locality and
leaves your home town dead. Toronto and Montreal are growing
rapidly because uf the growth uf thc West ami the business ihey gel
from the Wesl. When you sent! away for goods you pay r money to
the express companies antl to the Eastern thaler ami none of it ever
comes back to you. When you spend your money at home lhe local
business houses prosper, the whole community prospers antl you gel
some of your money bat k   -indirectly bill surely.
Don't think ihat in yuur case it does not matter because you
are only sending away a few dollars. It does mailer; every dollar
matters! And if many uf you semi away yuur dollars, in ihe aggregate
they amount lo a whole lot���and it mailers a whole lot.

GROWING UP
I'm growing very big and tall,
Almost lo mother's shoulder;
Ami though there's lots of things 1
like
In gelling lo bo older.
My legs ami arms have grown so
long
That father laughs, and Hobby
Just   grins   antl   says,   "Oh,   ("tee,
Pauline,
Your knees are awful knobby!"
Antl uncle calls me Spindle-shanks
And Polly-Dootlle-Dandy,
And says, "My child, be thankful
that
Your lovely legs aren't bandy."
It's nice to reach high hooks and
things,
If anybody pleases,
Hut I tlo wish my family
Weren't all such horrid teases.
1 don't know where to put myself
When mother tries lo hold me;
I wish she knew some comfy way
To lake me up and fold mc.
Of course she's always letting down
My skirts anil sleeves,  to hide
me���
Hut, then, 1 wish my bones would
wait
'Till I grow up inside me.

MODES IN BRIEF
Flashes from Fashion's Centres
to be generall) becoming. The
Tyrolean models are nobby, and
generally becoming. A pretty one
in this shape is made a white
chip, with a large double bow,
perched on top of lhe erov.n and
falling over ilu -ides and back.
'The Alpine Bhapes are also pretty
and stylish.
For the more dressy occasions,
there are the dress, antl picture
hats, larger, ii seems, than ever,
beautiful wiih their sweeping willow pinnies, .md small Bowers,
for (lowers thi- year are preferably
small and applied in wreaths, or
made up in buckle shapes.
Naturally, being the coronation
year, there are many bright colors
worn, and trimmings, red cherries,
especially. Black and white is
also a favored combination, and
the all black hat is as much in
vogue as ever. I.ace is being
used a great ileal tm the dress
hats, and for afternoon wear it is
filmy and pretty.
One dominant feature about
most of the hats is the decidedly
upward turn of the brim, main
roll very slightly, while in the
Napoleon shapes it is turned up
flatly against the crown, both
front and back.   'The little brimless
hat is as much in evidence as it
was in the winter, and it does not
appear so ridiculous, though perhaps   that    is   because   we   have
become accustomed to it.
Then there are the over-popular
flower hats, and they will doubtless
be much worn, for his is a season
of (lowers and colors. 'The lingerie
and lace hats have not been
forgotten.
The helmet hat is perhaps the
most favored at the present moment.

es that Make for Good Looks
Wise girls want to feel well, antl
to feel well means to look pretty
as a matter of indisputable fact,
as every woman knows. A correct carriage tloes more than you
may imagine to keep you feeling
well antl looking pretty. Simple
exercise regularly taken dtx's much
to develop the chest and improve
the carriage.
For this, practice the following:
Standing as erect as possible, with
shoulders thrown back and chest
forward, thi' arms hanging close
to the body, lhe head up, wilh lips
firmly closed, inhalation is to be
taken as slowly as possible. At lhe
same time the arms are to be
gradually raised, the backs of
the hands upwards, until they
closely  approach  each  other over
the head at the moment the lungs
are completely filled.
'This position should be maintained for about five seconds before
the reverse process is begun.   As
the arms are gradually lowered, the
breath is exhaled slowly, so lhal
the lungs shall be as nearly as
possible freetl from the breath
at the lime the arms again reach
lhe firsl position al the side.
'These deep respirations should
be repeated live or six times, antl
the exercise gone through several
times a tlay if time will permit.
To Save Trouble
Every housekeeper knows the
tedious task of soiling stockings
in pain when they come from the
laundry. 'This is very easily remedied by sewing a small tape al
