JEW ENGLAND TO OPPOSE
THE REC1PR0OTY TREATY
althoueh Agreement Is Framed to Help Trade With
'   Sew England States, Its Forces Will Line Up
to Prevent United States Senate from
Ratifying the Treaty
SHIPPING REPORTS
,Spec;ul to the Optimist)
Toronto. Jim 26. A special wire to
0�� Journal of Commerce, New York,
ta, Washington says in part: In-
���crouton which has lieen received by
the StMto with reference to thc con-
tntso! -ho reciprocity treaty concluded
by president Taft with Canada is
already leading to I strong combination
ol force again* (lie adoption of the
ipt-emcM.
The antagonism seems to be headed
from Ni* Kntlnnd by one of the men
iho hive been <loing a great deal of
talking in regard to reciprocity.   The
treaty it is stated has been framed
largely along New England lines with
the idea of placating New England
desires for hotter trade relations.
In spite of this fact New Englani1
men of both houses who have been
investigating tbe status of the agree-
ment have obtained what they consider
official information to warrant ihem
in making the statement that they
expect to be obliged ;o vote against 'he
agrtcment.
The investigation at ihe capital
shows the old tomUnation whiih in
the past hus always killed reciprocity,
drawing together for the sane purpose
now.

Prince Rupert will before long have
a steel industry to rank with thc most
thriving   on   the   American   continent.
Today it is announced by Mr. Jas. D.
Sword that with Mr. H. K. Owens, C. E.,
and other associates he has just taken
over a tract of iron ore deposits ion
Louise Island, Queen Charlotte group.
The  sum  of  $260,000   is  represented
by the transaction, and the property
is   being  turned  over  to  one  of  the
largest steel corporations on the American continent.
The ore is one of the finest iron
showings on the Pacific coast assaying
68 to 69 per cent of metallic iron, no
sulphur,   and  only   a   trace  of  phos
phorus.    It is equal in quality to the
Swedish ores now used for the finest
tool steel.
Development work is to commence
this spring. Many millions of tons
of the ore are on the ground, and by
the construction of 2 1-2 miles of railway and a dock, lhe ore can bc landed
at Cumshewa Inlet and delivered on
Puget Sound points or the Fraser River
for $2 a ton and at Prince Rupert for
$1.50 a ton.

It -was J. W. Austen of Prince Rupert,
who on a recent visit to the Queen
Charlotte Islanels realized the value
of theise deposits anel secured an option
on them. The deal was put through
by Mr. Sword who is well known as
having conclueled the deal with Mr.
Mann for the Portland Canal short

This is a little section of thc paper, which from day to day will be devoted
to subjects of special interest to women. Any and all of the ladies of Prince Rupert
are invited to contribute to its columns, and to take part in ita discussions. Suggestions and criticisms are invited by the editor. The hope is expressed that "The
Cosy Cerner" will fill a social need.
Miss Pankhurst Has No Doubts
Miss E. Sylvia Pankhurst, daughter
of the leader of the British militant
suffragettes, and who has been imprisoned because of her activities in
the cause in the streets of London, is
at New- York to instruct the American
women in the latest English methods
of bringing about woman suffrage.
"Will the English women get the ballot?"
she was asked. "They will," was the
prompt reply. "Wc will get the ballot
in a year's time. We have the assurance
from the Premier that that old bill will
reach its third reading during the
next parliament. That is all we want
���the third reading. Then our just
rights will come."
Teats of  Real Education
A professor in the university of Chi-
j cago told his pupils that he should consider them educated in the tyst sense
I of the word when they could say yes
! to every one of fourteen questions
! that he should put to them. It may
interest you to read the questions.
| Here they are: Has education given you
| sympathy with all good causes and
made you espouse them? Has it made
you public-spirited? Has it made you
a brother to the weak? Have you
learned how to make friends and keep
them? Do you know what it is to be
a friend yourself? Can you look an
honest man or a pure woman straight
in the eye? Do you see anything to
love in a little child? Will a lonely
dog follow you in the street? Can you
be high-minded and happy in the meaner drudgeries of life? Do you think
washing dishes and hoeing corn just
as compatible with high thinking as
piano-playing or golf? Are you good
for anything to yourself? Can you be
happy alone? Can you look out on
the world and see anything except
dollars and cents? Can you look into
a mud puddle by the wayside and see
the clear sky? Can you see anything
in the puddle but mud? Can you look
into thc sky at night and see beyond
the stars. Ctln your soul claim relation ship with the Creator?
|that will help solve the rainy-day prob-
'; lem and prove a valuable educator at
(the same time.   I got the idea from my
1 little  daughter,  who is in  the  fourth
grade and beginning to study geography.
She was studying about Japan and was
ransacking all the papers and magazines
in her effort to find pictures that would
help her to understand.   Then the idea
was born.
An old book may be used. Two-thirds
of the leaves must be cut out to make
the thickness right when the book is
completed. I have found that flour
paste is about as good as anything to
paste in the material.
Divide the book into as many departments as you wish countries, and at the
top of the first page of each division
paste a plain strip of paper with the name
of the country written upon it, as for
instance Japan, China, Russia, and so
on. In the back part it is well tohave
a department of miscellany, for often
some interesting item about some place
that we have not given a department
may be found.
Now comes the collecting of the material. Hunt up all of the old papers
and magazines and set the children to
work selecting pictures of cities and
people and places of interest in the
various countries. Pictures give thc
children better ideas of foreign life than
any amount of reading.
You will readily see what a lot of
material may be collected in this way
and how rapidly the book will grow.
Every paper will contribute something
of interest. You will find yourself
growing as interested as the children,
and really such a book when completed
makes a fine reference book.
A Working Girl Novelist
The prize awarded annually by the
Goncourt academy for the most original and meritorious book of the year
will probably go this year to the poor
Parisian seamstress, Marguerite Au-
doux, for a novel entitled "Marie-
Claire," which records thc bitter struggle of her early life and took her ten
years to write. Left an orphan at an
early age, educated at a convent til'
she was twelve, she became a farm
servant, and minded sheep and pigs in
return for her keep. The town called
her, and she went to Bourges, where
she earned a couple of francs a day by
mending old clothes. At the age of 18
she made up her mind to go to Paris,
and reached the capital with just 3c
in her pocket. Finally she got work
as a dressmaker. A year ago her sight
began to fail her, and she decided to
see if "Marie-Claire" had any value.
Madame de Noailles was shown the
book, but was horrified at the bad
spelling. Octave Mirbeau, the dramatist, was not deterred by this fault, and
was so impressed by the poignancy of
the work that he took the authoress
under his wing and helped her to get
her story published.
DAILY COOKING RECIPE
Pineapple Salad
Take one can of pineapple, drain off
all the juice, and one-half pound of
marshmallows cut up in small pieces.
Take your salad dish and put first a
layer of pineapple and then a layer of
marshmallows until thc di8h iB two-
thirds full. Cover with a good thick
layer of whipped cream. The sliced
pineapple cut up in small pieces is preferable to the grated. This makes a
good sized salad and is excellent.
Entertaining the Kiddies
Irma   B.   Matthews  writing  in  the
Mothers' Magazine makes an interesting
suggestion.   She says:
The traveler's scrapbook is one thing
PRACTICAL HOUSEHOLD HINTS
If a curtain or portiere pole is rubbed
with hard soap before being put up the
draperies will slip on easily.
In cooking beans or peas their flavor
will be much better if cooked in as little
water as possible.

Dates stuffed with peanut butter and
then rolled in sugar are a pleasing
change from dates stuffed with nuts.
Dates and figs cut in small pieces and
served with plenty of sugar make a
tasty accompaniment to a dish of rice
boiled in milk.
To use sour milk for griddle cakes,
never add baking powder, but instead
an even teaspoonful of baking soda to
each cup of milk.
Strange as it may seem, beef may be
'ttpt for months if immersed in sour
nlilk. The lactic acid destroys the
germs of putrefaction.

(Special Correspondence)
Massett, Jan. 25.���It is expected
that authentic information, regarding
the opening of coal lands to pre-emp-
tors, will be received shortly. Thousands of acres of the best farming land
in the province will then be available
forjthe settler.
The lack of telegraphic anel steamer
communication is a hardship to the
settlers on Massett Inlet. A fortnightly
steamship serviccin a growing portion
of the province, with no other means
of getting outside, is a drawback that
can only be realized by those within a
few hours' journey of Prince Rupert.
The need of another steamer on this
route, giving a weekly set vice, has been
brought before the people interested.
Three marriages are on the lapis in
Massett. These unions will mean a
record of five marriages during the
present   month.    In  one   instance the

Go On; Sic 'em!
The question of whose house is on fire makes all thc difference in the world
to some people's sense of humor. Three weeks ago, in certain quarters, a terrific
howl was being made about the delay in thc electric lighting plant. Accusations
were made by one somewhat irresponsible parly that the delay was Intentional,
and for an improper purpose. The whole future of the city, and our hope of heaven
seemed to depend on having the electric light turned c:n immediately. Even Mr.
Manson referred to the matter in announcing his platform, and with a great show
of sincerity promised "If the plant is no', completed before January 12th, I will
undertake io huve the electric light plant in operation within ten days after my
election."
Well, the ten days were up last Sunday, but there is no light. Neither is
there any howl. Mr. Manson is Mayor. Alderman Smith is still Chainran of
the Light Committee, and the gentleman who had an attack of etlitorial hydrophobia because the light was not on last Christmas has been a member of the
Council for two weeks.
For ourselves, we quite understand lhat these delays are unavoidable. We
do not accuse anyone of grafi or incompetence. Our own idea is that the plant
haa progressed as will as could be expected. But Alderman Newton is different.
After those terrible tirades of his before his appointment to office, his silence now
is exceedingly funny.
II cannot be that he is careless of the public welfare since his elevation to
otlice, for he has announced his intention to fire all the city employees who can
be dispensed with by hook or by crook. Il cannot be that he is unaware that
the Mayor sailed away from his job without taking any stpps to redeem his promise
in regard to the electric light.
We would hate lo suspect Alderman Newton of etlitorial cowardice, but it
certainly looks as if he is scared to give Mr. Munson and Alderman Smith n jolt
over the delay in the electric light plant. We appeal to our contemporary to show-
its spunk and sit.gleness of purpose.
There is nothing to be afraid of.   Go on;  sic 'em!

by the action of Bishop Fallon of London who aroused much criticism by
condemning the bi-lingual schools in

BURNS' MEMORY
WAS HONORED
ST. ANDREWS SOCIETY BANQUET
A GREAT SUCCESS
Bagpipes, Haggis, the National Beverage, Eloquence, Music, Story,
and Good Fellowship Figured in
Celebrating the Scottish Bard's
Birthday.
With bagpipes, haggis, wee drapptea
of the national beverage, eloquence and
good fellowship, the 162nd anniversary
of the birth of Robert i'-rMs wi>s (,*l-
ebrated by the S;. Andrews ,v'" .>���
at their Burns banquet lasl night. The
event was an unqualified success. The
opinion was fr ely oxpreosod that in
the excellence of lhe repast, the flow
of soul, and the high order of the speeches, the banquet put >n the shade anything
previously attempted in the city. Mini*
host, Peter Black, of the Central Motel,
vice-president of the society, was the
su ject of very hearty con ratulations
at the close for his part in the evening's
success. The large dining room was
splendidly illuminated and decorated
for the occasion, and tIk* service excellent. It was well after three in the
morning before most of tht guests
attempted to depart. All agreed that
it was a celebration such as would have
pleased the heart of the poet  himself.
The toasts were proposed by the
chairman, Mr. Geo. \V. Kerr and rt-
sponded to by representative speakers.
"The immortal memory" was made lhe
occasion for a review of the poet's
life and work by Mr. Thomas Met'Iy
mont. Acting Mayor Smith and Alderman Pattullo sketched the possibilities
of Prince Rupert's future under wise
development in response to "Th,* city
we live in."
"Scotland" eloquently responded to
by Rev. K. VY. Kerr, M. A., brought
also some good stories. One was about
the Scotchman's landlady who cleaned
the inside out of the haggis before
serving and complained lhat ther,* was
very little left.
Rev. VY. II. McLeod and Mr. 11. p.
McRae spoke (or "Canada," praising
the part of the Scottish pioneers in
laying the foundations of prosperity
and national character.
A strikingly affective sketch of the
resources of British Columbia was
given by Mr. A. M. Manson in reply
to "Our Province." To the same
toast, Mr. F. H. Mobley contributed
incidents gleaned from his own experience while mining und prospect ing
in the farti orth. He spoke of the
vast mineral wealth awaiting the advent
of the railroads.
"Kindred Societies" were represented
in telling responses by Mr. K. .V. Woods
for the Sons of England, Mr. Morris
Soskin for the Hebrew Voting Mill's
Association, Mr. T. Trotier for the
French-Canadian Club, and Mr. W. P.
Lynch for the Irishmen. The hitter's
tribute to Burns as a poet was unexpectedly eloquent and telling, and
breathed a real intimacy with the poet's
spirit.
"Imperial Forces" was responded to
by Mr. J. F. Macdonald, and "The
Press" by Alderman S. M. Newton
and Mr. .1. S. Cowper, in effective
speeches. The latter created a good
deal of merriment by saying that the
greatest thing Burns accomplished hail
been quite overlooked. Burns was thc
only man who had succeeded in bringing
lhe editor of the Empire and the editor
of the Optimist to see eye to eye upon
any one question.
In true Scottish accent and fashion
Mr. David Thomson paid tribute to
the toasl of "The Ladies." acknowledgl d
for them by Mr. James Russell, whose
rendering of Scottish humorous songs
in splendid voice, was one of the greatest
helps to the evening's success. Songs
from the poet were given hy Mr. C. \Y
W. Gauld, Jas. Black, W. M. Brown
and Jus. Dick, and an excellent rendering
of Tarn (.'Shunter by Mr. W. ti. Dennis.
