disgraceful exhibitions that has ever
been witnessed in a legislative assembly
took place in '.he House yesterday after
noon when John Jardine, member for
Ksquimalt, regaled the House with an
account of the fracas which occurred
between himself and Hon. William
Templeman outside of the Parliament
Buildings at Victoria last fall. Boast-
ingly, and in the language of the prize-
ring, the member for Esquimalt told
of ths incident illustrating his remarks
by showing how he had doubled his
fist and dealt, sundry alleged "upper-
cuts."
Premier Left the Chamber
During the recital of this astonishing
speech, Premier McBride left the cham
ber.     The   incident   caused   a   great
sensation.    Incidentally it showed that. _

finally ordering him out of the office.

The incident is being freely discussed

out wnat had been done he was furious.
He denounced the circular as scurrilous
and  contemptible,  and  to justify his
by the members at Victoria. There
is a possibility that Mr. Mcintosh will
be cited to appear before the bar of
the House, for a breach of privilege
in distributing the circulars.

the company felt they could not do
better than have her replica operating
in the waters of Northern British Clo-
u in hi a for them.
Bi-Weekly Service
Of course it is possible that she may
replace the Beatrice on the run just
as the Adelaide has replaced thc Charmer
on the trip to Victoria, but it is regarded
in shipping circles both in Prince Rupert
1 and Vancouver that during the summer
j months at any rate when the trade of
the coast is booming with the influx
of settlers and thc consequent output
of material, that both the steamers will
be run and will form a bi-weekly service
in the same way as thc I'rince George
and Prince Rupart ol the G. T. P. arc
expected to do.
A Steamer Per Day
In this way the possibility of a daily
service wilh the south looms promisingly
upon the horizon. With the fleets of
the G. T. P. the Canadian Pacific, the
Canadian Northern, and the Union
steamship vessel, the Camosun, there
will be seven regular ships making this
port with passengers and freight every
week.
Conditions Improving
Of course by the time the promises
of  today   are   realized   many  changes
may have taken place in the personnel
I of the coasting boats of the norlh Pacific
bin it is not ai all likely that whatever
I alterations may be made they will be
i any   diminution   in   the  set-ice.     The
iforecast is based upon the present conditions,  and  although  the ships  may
, come and go it is not to be believed
that the circumstances ol trade and
commerce will  deteriorate, the  reverse
!order of things being much the more
: probable event uation.
Will Make Trade
The very fact that these great shipping organisations hnve seen fit to undertake the task ol developing  the  trade
'of the coast ol British Columbia by
putting on a service which will be more
i than adequate for the present demands,
is not only a huge advertisement for the
Province, it is a stimulant that will
inevitably bring about its own reward
by  facilitating the  trade relations  of
the north and the  soulh, and thereby
developing the great and inherent resources of the country.
BIG FIRE ON
THIRD AVENUE

covered thai it was neither in hia own
nor in the owner's language. The
owner modestly admitted his acquaintance with several tongues. To his
mind English was easy, and he spoke
it with considerable facility of expression
to prove it; French was also easy but
the Oriental languages he admitted were
hnrd. He was a worker who had lost
practically his all in the blaze, but
it seemed to disturb his "lettered heart"
less than the saving of tl.e book.
Fire Apparatus Arrives
The house belonged to Mr. Haudenschild who with his family took up residence there early in the summer of
last year. At the present time he is
out of town and knows nothing of his
loss. To the energy and thought fulness
ot his wife he owes what little there
may be left of the family possessions.
Thc lire brigade though early on the
scene was not able to do anything to
save the building.
Two Feet Pressure
In thc first place ihe men could not
get to the scat of operations on account
of the street being up in that particular
vicinity. By taking a roundabout
route they got within a hundred yards
of the fire. From there they unwound
their hose but when ihey turned it on
the fire the water only squirted about
two feet from the nozzle. The sight
was pitiable to behold. The attempt
was useless. In any case il is questionable whether any amount o( water
would have saved the house hy that
time. If there ever was a chance however that settled it. In a very short
time the wooden walls of Ihe house fell
inwards with a crash.
awoke with a start when the fire waa
at its highest, and in hia own words
did not breathe for quite a few minutes
with anxiety. He dived into his clothes
with a speed that put any protean artist
to shame, and rushed out to gauge the
chances of contagion. And it was with
a sense of personal, almost of bodily
relief, that he calculated upon the
safety of the station.
Building Insured
Miss Sophie Haudenschild stated that
the house and gear was insured. ' The
exact damage is impossible to estimate,
but it will cover several thousand
dollars.
Had a History
The house burned down this morning
was one of the oldest in ��� he Vickersville
district. It has known several tenants
and was the scene of the first fatal
blasting accident on the townsite when
thc little boy Nehring lost his life when
a rock came through the roof.

Electric Plant Danger
It was a most fortunate thing that thc
morning broke calm and windless, Thc
new electric power plant was only thirty
feet away from the burning house and
a breeze might have meant its utter
ruin.   Thc man in charge of the plant
MEETING OF WAGE WORKER
Wage   Rate  and   Labor   Conditions
Were Discussed
At last night's meeting of thc Prince
Rupert Industrial Association a very
large gathering of the wage workers
assembled, and strong sympathy was
shown with the objects of thc association
as set forth by their various speakers.
In the discussion of the wage rate
and conditions of labor in this city
arguments were put forward in favor
of thc increase demanded. One leading
speaker referring to the city council's
question regarding the numerical strength
of thc association warned his hearers
that that question betrayed their desire
to ingore thc demand unless the workers
are banded in sufficient strength to
enforce it.
The call to wage workers one and all
to join in swelling the ranks of the
association met with appreciative response. A membership roll of a thousand
strong is looked for in the near future.
All speakers strongly impressedon
the assembled workers the great essential that only by uniting can they
gain the advantage of improved living
conditions they are seeking.

PROPOSAL MADE TO CREATE
A PORTFOLIO OF RAILWAYS
Bill to That Effect Passes House at Victoria���Williams
Jeeringly Suggests to Create Portfolios for All the
Conservatives���Finance Minister's Report
(.Special to the Optin.ist'
Victoria, Feb. 1- Railway legislation
occupied the House at Victoria all day
yesterday. The bill to create a department of railways passed successfully
nfier debate on the subject.
The Premier was absent from the
House nnd in his absence Dr. Young
moved the second tending. lie explained
that the bill was necessitated in a large
measure by the Canadian Northern
construction throughout the lsiand and
the Province as well as by the rapid
railway development of the whole country. The bill did not intend to make
a separate portfolio. The demands of
the caso woultl be met by doubling
ii up with some other office. The
railway minister would also have supervision over tiam lines.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite criticized the
.-realion of the new department as
superfluous on the ground that there
was nothing in the legislature to pre-
jvont any railways gutting the Dominion
' charter and coming under thi Dominion
super vision.
I    Mr. Willian s also critii ited he action
lot the government in relation to the
bill.   It suggested to h;s mind that the
ministry �� as becon ing top-In avy. They
already had six ministers with portfolios
and one feeling mighty lonely without.
| lie suggested that   the  process should
I go  on  to  the  eigh'h  and  fun her.     If
j iluy only continued it a little bit il.tre
woultl  soon  In- a  poi i (olio  for i very
] Cons, rvativo in the Louse.
j    Mr.   Ellison,   the   Finance   Minister,
|showed ihat $:i59���'i44 was expended by
I special warrant during the year.   Aside
'from thi public works which absorbed
[$75 000   the   principal   emergency   expenditure was caused through lighting
the  forest   tires.    Other expenses  were
the loans to Prince Rupert and Stewart
for tin purposes of installing water and
i-tlu ii in sewerage systems.

A DISGRACEFUL SCENE IN THE LEGISLATURE
JARDINE OF ESQUIMALT IN LANGUAGE OF THE PRIZE-RING ENTERTAINS
HOUSE WITH STORY OF HIS FISTIC EXPLOITS
PREMIER McBRIDE LEAVES THE CHAMBER
Astounding Incident Arose Out of a Circular from the Esquimalt Liberal Association Calling on Their Renegade Member to Resign from Constituency
 Copies Were Put on Members' Pesks Before House Opened
Mi
m day,.
�����d��y   and   runs   for
Speciul to the Op'.iinisll
Victoria. Jan. 81.   One of the nioat
disgraceful   exhibitions  that   has e\t*r
been witnessed in n legislative assembly
look place in the KOUM ycterday lifter
noon when John Jardine, mambor for
Est|uimalt, regaled the House with an
account of the frai-as whieh occurred
between himself and lion. William
Templeman outside of the rarliainent
Buildings at Victoria last fall. Boast -
Ingly, and in the language of the prize
ring, the member for Esquimau told
of th? incident illustrating his remarks
by showing how he had doubled his
fist and dealt sundry alleged "upper-
cuts."
Premier Left the Chamber
During the recital of this astonishing
speech, Premier McBride left the cham
ber. The incident caused a great
sensation. Incidentally it showed that
Mr. Jardine's object in foreswearing the
Liberal party was that he was disgruntled at being overlooked by Sir
Wilfrid Laurier on the Premier's recent
visit to British Columbia.
A Biting Circular
The Incident aroee on a question ol
privilege. Following Mr.lard no.i letenl
ilop-nvir iii ihe House to the Conservative side, atur bla election as a Liberal,
tbe members of tho Bsquimalt Liberal
Association iaaued a circular calling
on Jardine to resign his seat, as hi.*
count in the House in betraying the
electors  of   Eaqulmalt  hail  stultified
hims.'lf and caused his name to be
struck oft* the lists of the Liberal Association.
Surprise for Jardine
Copies  of  this  circular   were,  it  is
alleged,  obtained   by   Mr.   ('.  J'   Mcintosh a local  lawyer,  who  by some
means or  other  placed  these  on  the
members' desks before the House opened.    When Jardine arrived and found
out wnnt had been done he was furious.
He denounced the circular as scurrilous
and contemptible, and to justify  his
course went into thc whole history of
I his  recent  relations with  the  Liberal
'��� party.   Wilh great detail he described
i the fight between himself and Brewster
j ns to who should be thc leader of tho
liberal party 'n the House mil th'*n led
up lo the alleged fracas between himself and Hon. William Templeinim.
Ci*se of Wounded Vanity
He declared that there hail been a
conspiracy  to  ignore him;   that   whin
Sir Wilfrid Laurier visited ihr Province
he had been purposely slighted by not
being asked to take part on any of
the committees, receptions, or other
functions at whieh the Federal Premier
was to be present.
Dealing with the Templeman incidi nt
he said he was invited to the oflice of
Mr. McUraw of the Public Worka
department where he met Mr. Temple- j
man, who accused him of calling himself and Ralph Smith, "aiwashes."'
He said that Mr. Templeman was very
angry, putting his fist in his face, and
finally ordering him out of the oflice.
May Mean Nore Trouble
The incident is being freely discussed
by the members ai, Victoria. There
is a possibility that Mr. Mcintosh will
be cited to appear before the bar of
the House, for a bruach of privilege
in distributing the circulars.

Helped Produce Great Work
At the dinner recently given in celebration of the part taken by women
in producing the eleventh edition of
the Encyclopaedia Britannica Miss Janet
Hogarth, the head of thc women's stall,
in speaking of women's contribution
to the great work, said she believed
it was thc lirst occasion on which the
share of women in producing a great
work of learning had received public
recognition. It was therefore a very
greai occasion, an epoch-making occlusion, and a day to which women in
the future will be able io look back with
pride and pleasure.
Women whose fitness to do so would
receive instant and general acknowledgement, have contributed lo education, scholarship, literature, travel sociology, science, philosophy, medicine
and history in the great book.
This wide range of feminine activity proves that in the last four decades
women have compressed thc work of
four centuriis.
"y" in "yo" while he honors the person
he addresses with a capital "V." I
believe-although I am not. sufficiently
acquainted with foreign languages to
speak with certainty on the point-
that the English speaking person is
the only one in the world who applies
a capital letter to himself. That 'I
strikes the foreigner aa exceedingly-
egotistic. Its absence in other languages makes it very difficult for a
student of English. What is the secret
of its upe?"
The instructor could give his pupil no
satisfactory answer. He said he found
that not only foreigners have difficulty
in writing the capital "I" for the personal pronoun, but a little child's first
impulse is also to write "i" and it is
not easy to train him to use the capital.

Woman's Love ol Dress
The real defense of women in their
growing love of dress seems to us to be
this, that dress is a recreation, one of
those natural recreaiions which grow-
out of necessity and out of everlasting
emotions.
It is nothing against a recreation
that the frivolous rich suffer from overindulgence in it, or thc frivolouB poor
from that craving for it which has ils
roots in privation.
The love of dress among women���especially, we think, in its modern manifestation,  which  emphasizes  variety
makes, we believe, for social balance.
The disappearance of all remnant of
class costume is a great reform. The
open worship of tradition is a deadening thing. At the same time, by cultivating their inBtinct for the pretty and
the useless, women build unconsciously
a great rampart of admiration against
the devastating spirits of envy and
utilitarianism.
Dress is a recreation, shared by a
whole sex���a strong bond of sympathy,
and at the same time one of the forces
which render the little ebullition of unnatural feeling which we have dignified
by the name of sex-hatred wholly
ridiculous.
For if we go to the root of thc matter the reas-n women love to wear a
variety of line clothes is liecause men
love to ace them wearing them, and the
reason men tentl more and more to a
uniform ia because women in their
heart of hearts care less than men do
for their appearance, are less influenced
by them antl have a quicker appreciation of those chii'tns over which fashion
and finery have no effect.
An Arrogant Pronoun
A French opera singer, while singing in New York devoted much of her
time to thc study of English. Her instructor was pleased with her progress,
but he had great difficulty in getting
her to use the capital "I" for the personal pronoun. Whenever she wrote
the word she invariably used a small
"1." One day she asked him a difficult
question.
"Why is it," she said, "that an English speaking person when he writes of
himself invariably uses the capital letter? That tall "I" strikes me as being
very arrogant. A Frenchman, refer
ring to himself wrijes "je" with a small
"j"; a German, although he may gratify
all his substantives, with capital letters, employs s small "i" in writing
"ich"; a Spaniard, when he uses thc
personal pronoun at all, uses a small

main line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
have received their official baptism, and
their titles now fixed for all time, have
gained the approval of the G. T. P. dignitaries at Winnipeg and Montreal.
The process of naming is much the
same all over the world, whether the
subject be a man or a thing. In no
instance can they protest. In naming
(he stations one or two of the more
prominent men connected with thc G.
T. P. organization in various branches
have been immortalized. Among
those whose names stand out conspicuously from the list are those of
Phclan and Salvus. As most people
know, Phelan is the name of the genial
superintendent of the Dominion government telegraph department. Mr.
Salvus is a prominent G. T. P. contractor.
The names of the stations are as follows: Sockeye 16.61. Tyee 21.28, Essington 26.49, Skeena 32.36, Phelan

A LITTLE CRESTFALLEN
Editor Alderman Explains His Advertising  Ratea
In a report from the finance com-
mittt-e to the lat.t city council certain
accounts were recommended for -uiy-
ment. The name of the Empire Publishing company was prominent among
them with an account of $271 for city
advertising at 10 cents per line.
Regarding this Alderman Pattullo
asked whether it were not the case
that nearly half the space in some of
these ads. had been occupied by the
crest for which the 10 cents a line rate
had still been charged.
Alderman Newton said the crest had
been put in because he thought it
was usual in city advertising, and not
with the idea of running up a big bill.
He said that if there were any objection
to the item he gave the city clerk pi r-
mission to deduct 10 cents a line for
the space occupied by the crest, and
the matter was left there. The financial
report was adopted

MOTOR STEAMER
FOR ATLANTIC
11.000 TON   VESSEL   NOW BUIL-
ING  IN   SCOTLAND
Will Accommodate Sixteen Hundred
Passengers and Carry Eight Thousand Tons Cargo���Belongs to Russian-American Line.
An 11,000-ton transatlantic "motor
boat," with accommodations for four
hundred cabin passengers, will enter
New York harbor next September
in the service of the Russian-American
line, which maintains a service between
New York, Rotterdam and Libau,
Russia. The vessel is now being built
on the Clyde.
While another steamship line has
announced that two freight ships are
to be built, of about 8,000 tons each,
to be equipped with internal combustion engines, it has remained for the
Russian-East Asiatic Steamship company, one of the last companies to
establish a service to America, to build
B larger passenger with this latest type
of power.
Although practically only a huge
motor boat, the new ship will accommodate 400 cabin passengers and 1,200
in the steerage, and will have room
for 8,000 tons dead weight of cargo.
There will be every appliance on board
for the comfort and safety of passengers, and there will be little on the
outside to tell of thc change except
the absence of the usual smokestacks,
which in n companion driven steam
vessel are two and a larger number of
ventilators to insure pure air at all
times in the motor rooms.
Approximately 7,000 I" *c power
will be developed by tha . motors,
and the new ship will be driven at a
���peed of seventeen knots.
BRIGHT OUTLOOK
FOR CANNERIES
A  MILLION AND A HALF SPENT
ON EQUIPMENT
The Tin Plate, Solder, Etc., for Cans,
Will Arrive from the Old Country
in March -Greatest Preparations
Ever.
British Columbin salmon canners
in preparation for thc canning sen-
son this year, which is expected to
qua! in results that of 1910, have
spent over $1,500,000 for equipment
and supplies. Tin plate, solder and
end for the salmon cans, boxes, nets
and gear art! all included in this amount
which is about the largest ever ptt
out by the canners of the province for
their business in an "off" season. The
tin plate for the greater part is coming
from the old country on the steamers
of the Holt antl Weir lines, and will
arrive early in March. I f
Although some of the canners had
more equipment remaining at the close
of the season laat year than waa anticipated, on the whole thc year's
results were regarded aa very satisfactory. This year in the north a heavy
catch is anticipated, although it will
be one of the light seasons for the Fraser
River canneries are now undergoing
overhauling. By the advent of the
lishing senson in June they will all be
in readiness for operations. Cannery
bands will bc sent north early in April
to prepare the boats, nets and so forth.
Although a good catch is expected,
none of the companies are preparing
to make additions as they had more
equipment and room Inst year than they
actually needed.
It was stated yesterday that the
British Columbia Packers' Association
hatl purchased about 35 per cent of
In* entire amount of supplies and
equipment secured by tho entire industry for the coming year.

The Passing of a Great Engineer
A great man passed away a couple of weeks ago in England in the person of
Sir John Aird, and thc Empire he enriched so much by his work, is the poorer for
his passing. It was typical of his unassuming character that ������ thousand people
know the man's work who know not him. Outside of engineering circles in Canada his name was lit neard in the Dominion. Yet this man thc son of a humble
Scottish stonemason nad carried out many of the greatest engineering enterprises
in the world including thc first waterworks at Amsterdam. Copenhagen and Berlin,
the gasworks at Copenhagen and Moscow, and various other works in France,
Italy, and Brazil; the great waterworks at Calcutta: the Millwall Docks; public
works in Sardinia, lhe Royal Albert Docks, the docks at Tilbury, the East and
West India Dock extensions, and several provincial railway lines. For the British
Government his firm undertook the building of the Suakim to Berber Railway
in the Soudan.
But far outreachin-- in importance any of these undertakings WM Ml greatest
work, thc building of the colossal Nile dam at Assouan, an enterprise which has
given new life to the whole Egyptian nation and adtlcd $75,000,000 to the
national wealth. As is universally known, Egypt and Nubia are rainless lands,
which depend for their fertility wholly on irrigalion by the waters of thc Nile, and
whon thri waters are insufficient crops fail, and dire distress results. By a Htroke
of genius. Sir John Aird came forward with a daring proposal to build a dam at
his own risk for* five million pounds, asking no payment until the work was finished.
The Egyptian Government closed with the offer, and the colossal dam, which ranks
among the most wonderful sights of Egypt, was opened by thc Duke of Connaught
in December, 1902. The lake formed by the dam has a capacity of 234,000,000,000
gallons. This extensive reservoir can maintain a supply of water in the canals
in Lower and Middle Egypt so that upwards of 500,000 acres can be added to
the area of land cultivable in summer.
The dam is constructed from granite blocks brought from the old quarries
at Assouan, and runs across stream for some 2,160 yards. It rises 130 feet above
the foundation, and its thickness varies from 23 feet at the top to 98 feet at the
bottom. Penetrating thc masonry are 180 sluice gates for regulating the flow of
water. In the construction of the work no fewer than 15.000 workmen, mostly
Egyptians were employed.
Of Sir John it can truly be said that he left the world a better place to live
in because of his work. Full of years and honors his life was a worthy one. He
and his like have done much lo build the Empire.
In Reply tO Rev. F. W. Ken-
It iB no surprising thing that Rev. F. W. Kerr should have lectured the Optimist
in his Sunday sermon. A newspaper has been defined as "something that everybody thinks he could run better than the man who is running it." But his criticism
was not well taken. It is a newspaper's function to report facts without fear or
favor. The justification for reporting Mr. Gosden's defence is that it was delivered
at a public meeting in answer to a public attack. Thc justification for saying that
his defence made a favorable impression is that it did do so. as the applause of the
crowded theatre showed. To do as Rev. Mr. Kerr would have us do and ignore
the man's defence of his character would be an immoral and cowardly act for a
newspaper which professes to give every man fair play.
Rev. Mr. Kerr's denial that thc Bocial evil is part of the social system is a question to be decided between Rev. Mr. Kerr and Mr. Gosden, the latter of whom
is probably well able lo take care of his end of the argument without outside
assistance.
But in pointing out that Mr. Kerr's statement that thc social evil Is not a
part of our social system is the opposite to that of Prof. Alvin S. Johnson, Philip
Rappaport, the New York Committee of Fifteen and other investigators of the
causes of prostitution, we would also point out that Rev. Mr. Kerr's conclusion
is contradicted by Rev. Mr. Kerr himBelf.
At the end of his discourse he is reported as ssying: "For the women themselves, he believed scarce two per cent were there willingly.   The great majority
were victims of circumstances."
Precisely.

A   Word   of Explanation
The human satisfaction at being missed was the only satisfaction which
came to the Optimist yesterday to relieve the disappointment of being unable
to iHsue a paper. On two occasions recently the paper had to be largely set up
by hand, Imt the frost-broken water pipe which caused our troubles of yesterday did not oventuate till it was too late in the day to save the situation.
To our numerous inquirers they seemed to be in the hundreds -we make
this word of explanation. With the prospect of removal to our permanent
building, these dilliculties will, we hope, become a thing of the past.

SIR WILFRID LAURIER KNOCKS
BOTTOM OUT OF CHARCES
Explains in House That Only Once in
Fifteen Years Had He Received
Any Communications from Robert
Kelly���Ottawa Satisfied.
(Special to the Optimisti
Ottawa, Jan. 31.���In the House
yesterday Mr. Taylor, member for
Leeds, elicited the reply from Sir Wilfred Laurier that a member of the
government had read thc evidence at
the Chinese investigation given by
Mr. Joe Martin in which, as reported
in the despatches the witness had
declared that nobody could get an order
or a contract from the government
except through Robert Kelly.
"All I have to say personally," added
Sir Wilfrid, "is that during the fifteen
yeare that the present government
has been in office I have only received
one communication from Mr. Kelly.
In reply to the question as to whether
the government would order an investigation into the charges made by
Mr. Martin Sir Wilfrid said that the
inquiry was now in progress in Vancouver.
FISHING EXTRAORDINARY
Herring and Salmon Abound in the
Bay
Everybody whose office Is located
anywhere near thc waterfront is excusing
himself on that account for striking
work and sojourning to the WBtor's
edge and from there casting a line
into the bay in the hope of catching
herring. The herring are there in shoals
and 11 the lines have enough hooks
spread over them thay cannot very well
fail to land the fish. The herring are
not biting but that does not preserve
them from tho ravages of the fisherman.
In their almost comatoso condition they
lie stationery in the water and If the
hook comes in their direction they
cannot very well ��scape.
Tho catch Is not confined to herring.
Yesterday forenoon a citixen went
out in a boat and with a trolling line
landed 180 lbs. of beauthiful spring
salmon. Today Balmon is thc dainty
dish at home and in the resutaranU.
Nothing Doing
Alderman Newton inquired at last
night's city council if anything further
had been done towards a settlement
of the G. T. P. assessment. Acting
Mayor Smith said that the matter was
still in the same stage.

In regard to the high school it is
estimated that by September there

qualified for tho work of tho high school.
For the first year it will be necessary
to carry on the work of the high school
in the new school, and with this idea

look after the physical as well as the
educational side of their charges they

of a gymnasium and the proper fixing
up of a playground at thc new school.
The secretary of the School Board
has been asked to write to Mr. Wm.
Manson as M. P. P. for Skeena, to have
one or two government lots at the
back of Lynch's store placed on reserve
for school purposes, as it is contemplated
in the near future to erect a new school
on that property if possible to accommodate the needs of the children of the
west end.
THE PASSING OF

TO ENTER LAST COURT
la Lying Very III and Not Expected to

Woman With an Ax*.
(Special to thc Optimist)
Eureka, Arkansas, Jan. 31.���The many
friends of Carrie Nation, the saloon
smasher, are in receipt of the sad newB
that she is sinking saft and may not
live out the day.
Carrie was a most wonderful woman
She saw one way and one way only.
The line of her vision wa straight and
clear. Prejudice and conviction blocked
up all the other channela. Her tour
round the world distributing miniature
axes will be remembered a long time
after she haa piutsed away. Her -head
waa often flighty and her reasoning
askew but her heart was always in the
right place. Saloon-keeping will b9
a tame job without Carrie Nation.

Stnrts Business
London. Feb. 1. (Special) The second parliament of King George assembled
today wilh little ceri niony, the real
special ulin fi,nol ion being reM-rved until
mxi Monday wlun the Ring and Queen
will oi in i ho proceedings Inr Ut mslon

Hundreds of enquiries from all parts
of Canada, the United States and
Europe come in to M. M* Stephens,
tie secretary of lhe IWrd of Trade
et Prince Kupert. People contemplating
settling here write asking about proapecta
People thinking about goirg into the
rich interior territory write asking if
they can purchase supplies, etc., in
Prince Rupert reasonably. The whole
correspondence suggests prosperity for
thc city and ita merchants,
Since the tusk of replying to ihisi
Ift.ers is getting beyond the power
of the secretary of the hoard of trade, a
meeting ot the board was held last
night in his offices to discuss plans for
issuini; the facts so often sought regarding Rupert in pamphlet form.
A campaign of advertising for Prince
Rupart -A ill be opened to extend even
farther the range of enquiries, und a
pamphlet covering the field of enquiry
fully, will be prepared. The claims of
the interior territory will be advantageously set forth, and the city itself
will ho fully dealt with. Facts, tacts,
facts is the cry. Not pictures or fairytales just the things people want to
know- the many things we have to
be proud of about our city.
An advertising committee composed
of tho following members was appointed
'last night:   W. F. Lynch, W. M. Law,
J. G. Scott,  It.  A. White and G. W.
1 Nickerson.
Other business dealt with last  night
J involved   some   criticism   of   th    post
I office.    The  need for  premises nearer
'the  business  section  was emphasized.
It was thought thut a temporary post
1 office should  bc put up soon,  as the
prospect   of   a   permanent   one   seems
remote.    It  wus agreed that the post-
mauler  is  laboring  under  considerable
I difficulty   and   no   criticism   whatever
1 was  directed   against   him.     But   the
delay in delivering nail to cull, rs ut the
wickets, the difficulty of getting stamps
or  money  orders  while  mail  is  being
sortid, the charges for box nut, und
ihe need for uptown mailing places were
all mentioned as requlrii g attention.
It was SUggi sled thut the dl parlnient
al  Ottawa be notified of the need for
expansion in tl.e present post office to
li.ea the needs of the growing city, and
meantime a committa was appointed
to Interview the postmaster nnd go

J. J. Sloan applied for membership
and was admitted.
The Secretary is to take up the
mutter of a waiting room on the wharf
and to try to get somethin-- done towards
meeting this need. He will also look
into thc matter of locul express rates
which are thought by the Hoard of
Trade to be exorbitant, and representations will be made to the various
cxpriss companies.
A BUggestion by A. F.. McMaster tha
a show case of grains, etc., the product
of thc inlerior lands, should he displayed on the whaif met with approval,

CULVERTS MUST
BE CONSTRUCTED
IS EXPENSE TO BE BORNE BY
GENERAL FUND
City Council Is Considering Matter
Which Remains Unsettled Alderman Newton Wants to Consult
the People on the Sub.���it
About 130 men are at present employed on works for the city hy the
city engineering department. A considerable pari of their operations consists in the building of culverts to deal
with the drainage from wide areas in
the central sections the natural outlet
for which is being crossi d by the new
Street grades. At the last city
council the question of payment for
these works came up. Is it to be done
out of general fund or local improvement?
That it is chargeable to general fund
is the opinion of Alderman Fattullo,
but Alderman Hilditch favors locul
improvement. He told the council he
believed thnt in paying more than
$15,000 on this work out of general.fund
thc city was brenking the municipal
clauses act.
Alderman Puttullo thought it hardly
fair thut Section One owners should
puy for work which is rendered necessary
by the drainage wuter from higher
mens.
Aldermun Newton advoentod thut the
people should be consulted before money
wus spent on uny improvements of this
sort.
The mutter is still unsettled Acting
Muyor Smith having suggested thnt
the aldermen contfiu r it further between
now and next council meeting.
CITY MUST BUILD
RETAINING WALLS
METHOD ADOPTED WILL NOT BE
VERY COSTLY
Cost Will Be Ab ut $8,000 for Streets
Now Being Graded but Walla Will
Not   Have Very   Finiahed   Appear-
Kill<<!  by   Fall
Toronto,   Feb.    1.   (Special)    A.   ('.
Gibson, barrister, died to-day an ihe
result  of fulling (rom u's.reit  ear nnd
alighting on his head lust night.    He
was *l!l yean of age.
Evidently none of the proix-rty owners
onstreeta now being graded are going
to undertake tie building of retaining
walls in front of their own lots. This
plan it wus thought would be generally
adopted. Some property owners did
go to the length of having plans and
specifications prepared, but they went
no farther, adn it is up to the eity now
to look after the job us a whole. The
matter came up ut the last ouneil.
Colonel liuvis, the iiiy engineer, in
a full report explained five methods
of constructing retaining walls. The
one he recommended most would cost
(229,000 und would be i-ubstantially
constructed masonry of good appearance.
The less expensive intermediate methods
were descrilied, and the last method
which could be done without thc employment of masons would cost $8,000.
This method would give a retaining
wall substuntinl enough, but lucking
in appearance lompared wiih the first
method.
On this question Aldeman Hilditch
i was condemnatory. He could not
fuvor the motion to adopt the re-iort
because he thought there waa not
money enough for the lirst rate scheme,
and ho didn't think the other methods
worth under.aking. He blumed the
situation on last council. Alderman
Pattullo was surprised that Alderman
Hilditch should take up this attitude
in regard to the old council. If the
res|K>nsibility for thc present difficulty
wus on the old council how much of
it rosed on Aldermun Hilditch himself? he asked. Aldermun Hilditch wus
a member of the streets, works and
property committee of lust council.
Aldermun Pattullo went on to say that
while he fuvored the $229,000 scheme
for retaining walls lie did not think
the city could stand it now, and he
also did not think it (air to the owners
west of the junction to make them pay
for improvements over lhe whole section.
The $8 000 scheme was not perfect but
it would give a fairly substantial wall,
and he did not think the cily could
afford ll belter scheme.
In Alderman Morrisey*! opinion the
whole mutter could safely be 'eft with
the cily engineer. The city had I good
engineer, and lie quesiion might well
be left in his hunds. This view wus
supported by Alderman Clayton.
The matter to  Alderman  Newton
���earned rather big tO tackle all nt once
He thOUght it would be better lo leave
il over until next week.
It  was  moved  thai  ,|���. .,..,���.

gone on wilh.   The motion was _JS
Alderman Hilditch dissenting.
