the new bridge is $8,885,000.
A Tragedy Recalled
Sis million dollars of loss was borne
by the Government when the first
bridge collapsed, and the structure
remained ruined, an unsightly failure,
marring the river just above Quebec.
Many of the bodies of the workmen
who lost their lives in the accident

the river as they were crushed under
inn- ol metal Overloading the structure
its partially constructed state with
material  for the
of the disaster.

A stronger und mote substantial
bridge In every way is planned by tin-
company now to undertake the work,
and the new structure will be put In
hands ut the earliest possible.

which might have In en expected from
a gentleman, namely, that he had no
.I. in io take any pun in a plot against
his federal leader, and that in any
if such an olfer were to he made
to him ii must coma from ihe parliamentary party and not from any self-
constituted committee in Montreal or
elsewhere.
"Then ihe story goes, tin- conspirators transferred their oirer to Sir James
Whitney, who retaliated by sending
their communication to Mr. Borden and
thus informing the federal lender of lhe
conspiracy against him."

A pretty wedding was solemnized at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. John A.
McLenaghen, Garland street, on Tuesday evening, March 28th, when their
second daughter, Jean M., became the
wife of Thomas McClymont, of Prince,
Rupert. Promptly at eight o'clock,
the bride enteted the drawing room,
loaning on the arm of her father, to the
strains cl Lohengrin's Wedding March
played by Miss Elsie McLenaghen.
The ceremony was performed by the
Rev. Thurlow Fraser. The bride was
gowned in ivory duchess satin with pearl
trimmings and carried a shower bouquet
of white roses. Miss Jessie McLenaghen,
in a becoming gown of silk crepe in
apricot shade, wi'h coral trimmings
and carrying pink roses, acted as bridesmaid. Dr. Duff supported the groom.
A dainty supper was then served by
Miss Franks, Misses Laura, Gertrude
and Myrtle McLenaghen. The guests
numbered about thirty, and included
only Ihe relatives and intimate fiineds
of the contracting parties. The bride's
mother wore a becoming gown of black
silk with sequin trimmings.
The drawing rooms were prettily
decorated with pink and white can-
nations and palms.
Mr. and Mrs. McClymont left on
the 12 o'clock C. P. R. for Prince Rupert via Vancouver. The travelling
suit of the bride was a plain tailor made
suit of navy blue serge, with blouse of
blue foulard, and hat of tuscan and
blue. She wore a handsome set of mink
furs the groom's gift.
Thc large number of beautiful gifts
received testify lo the esteem in which
the young couple are held.
The occasion was the more interesting
owing to the fact that it was also the
anniversary of the marriage of the
bride's mother and father.

COSTLY SPECK OF DUST
What Life Means to the Man With
the Golden Voice
Signor Caruso, the famous tenor, has
just lost flu,(mo through a little speck
of dust. This insignificant morsel
blew into his throat as he was walking
along the street, with the result that he
had to cancel four operatic performances for which he was to have been
paid $2600 each.
It is not so very many years ago since
Caruso was receiving only tenpence a
day for singing in a church choir. Now
Vugs his shoulders at $300,000 a
year.
Up till comparatively recently he
used to live tne luxurious life of a
wealthy man. but lately he had had to
follow an almost Spartan regime in
order to preserve his wonderful voice.
"It is thc simple life for me now," he
said to a friend recently. "No more
late suppers. Close attention to diet
and abundance of outdoor exercise and
sleep are the rules my physician has
prescribed for me."
Among his various accomplishments,
Caruso has lately turned fashion-maker,
for he created no little sensation on one
occasion by appearing in an evening
dress suit of a golden brown color.
Not to be outdone, a fellow singer in
the opera company immediately ordered
A  RECIPE  IN  RYHME

Take oranges of medium size.
The peel remove I pray;
From each a round cut from one end
And scoop the seeds away.
Fill up the little cups thus formed
With strawberry preserve���
That flavor mixed with orange juice
Is more than most deserve.
Then  top  each  orange  with  whipped
cream,
A cap all soft and white,
Made up of puffs, while for rosettes
The strawberries gleam bright.
On separate plates the fruit then serve
With laay-fingers slim,
And I've no doubt a king would say
The dish was fit for him

Bunch Forgotten
Virtue is the joy of the upward way.
You can easily  hide  the  dix ine by
definitions.
Twisted truth  usually doubles back
on the user.
The still, small voice is not the small
mind.
The putty man is apt to be proud of
his patience.
Making the  world  gloomy will  not
make it cleaner.
Misery  is  the  mental  chaos  of the
self-centered mind.

NOT IN THE PLAY
Rat in the Theatre Gives the Girls
Such  a  Fright
New York, April 6.���A big rat caused
a great big scare among the women in
the matinee audience at the Broadway
Theatre in Brooklyn. This is where
Victor Moore is playing in "The Happiest Night of His Life." The women
did impromptu dances on orchestra
chairs and there was a lavish exhibition
of ankles and lingerie. Actors forgot
their lines temporarily.
A lady in the stalls saw the rat first,
saw him creep from under a radiator
and peer about with his sharp, little
eyes. She screamed. The rat ducked
back to hiding.
About three minutes later there was
a general scream. The rat had reappeared. This time he felt he could
not retreat. He dashed up the left
aisle and then into the fifth row of thc
balcony seats. A great chorus of shrieks
and screams went up. Men tried to
kick the rat and hit him with overcoats.
But he was elusive. He darted up the
center aisle, between an usher's legs
and over the last row of benches, and
went none saw where. The women
sat on edge for the remaining part of
the performance. One of them said to
an usher as she was leaving:
"You should get a trap for thai rat."
"A trap? Why he's a regular professional rat," said the usher. "He's the
Btar in 'Cheese It or Trapped to His
Doom.'"

The Negro Problem in Edmonton
The news of the arrival at Edmonton of a trainload of negroes from Oklahoma
to till the soil cf All>erta along certain fringes of the G. T. P. was calculated to be
disturbing news without the further information that two of their number were
destined to be concerned in an assault upon a white girl in Edmonton.
Without assuming the guilt of the latter���assuming indeed that like the unfortunate Booker T. Washington they may be the victims of unfounded race suspicion and race hatred-it is to be hoped that the authorities will go slow in
the matter of introducing negro communities into Alberta. There is a point where
it is but a step across from Alberta to British Columbia.
True there are negro communities in Nova Scotia whose conduct under British
institutions is as exemplary as the conduct under British institutions of the negroes
in the West Indies. Bu'. we may be pardoned if we feel a reluctance to see negro
communities established on either side of the Rockies, save under most conservative
and safe-guarded conditions. Above all, Canada must be guarded*from"the possibility of having to face a race war inside her boundaries.
Coiwervative methods in dealing with this class of immigrationrare in the
interests of the negroes themselves. There is a difference in the climate of Oklahoma
and northern Alberta. Winter rigots that brace the nerves and give zest to the
British immigrants" joy of living, may freeze the thinner blood of the negro immigrant.   It will be kindness to him under in small trial quantities at first.
Canada needs immigrants, but of the right kind. The negro settlers may-
prove to be of the tight kind. For their and our interests it is to be hoped they
will prove lo be of the right kind.   But as ye*, they are an untried quantity. .JBS
What has become of those five thousand Scottish farm laborers ^that'Mr.
T. W. W. Stewart went over to Britain to procure. His mission was reported
successful, and they should be due before long. There is no doubt'of their proving
a success both U construction laborers, and later on as settlers by the right of way.

Brains and Their Uses
Thomas L. Masson thus wittily discourses upon a fruitful theme:
"Brains are common to all parts of the country, and traces of them have been
discovered in summer at Lenox, Bar Harbor, and Newport.
"They are originally used to obtain money, but when money is obtained by
them it usually takes their place.
"The quality of brains varies in different localities. Mixed with ginger, they
become very valuable.   With a spine, they are a necessity in every household.
"At one time they influenced literature, but the discovery was made that literature could do without them. Since then they have been almost exclusively
devoted to advertising.
"Brains are employed in various enterprises. They make bridges, railroads
and other systems of transportation. They also create capital, and are used extensively in evading the law. They mix with water and gasoline, but are'absorbed
by alcohol.
"Brains are bought and sold in the open market. They may be traded in on
the exchange in Washington and Albany or in other political centres. The best
quality, however, are not traded in. Indeed, oftentimes they are nol even heard
of until long after they have passed away."
A Chicago professor says that big feet are always an indication of great brain
power. If that is the case we should turn over the conduct of government to the
police, says the Vancouver World.

BIG BOXING SCHEME
New York,. April 5.���Boxing promoters have begun negotiations for the
holding of an international amateur
boxing tournament here which will
practically demonstrate the world's cham ,
pionship.
The   principal   class   in   these   com-
petition* will be the heavyweight with
entries from England and  France bid- (
ding   for  the title  against   such  well-
known exponents of the game as Warren :
Barbour,   Tony   Biddle   and   the   pick I
of the division of the west.   Applications |
will lie made to thp Amateur Athletic
Union for a sanction for the event as
well    as   permission   to    increase   the
valuation of medals as awards to the i
respective  winners.    The scheme calls
for a ten days' series at all weights.
It  is known thut Joe Choynski has
a   pupil   in   Chicago   whom   he  thinks
superior   to   Barbour   or  Middle.    He,
was   one   of   the   contestants   on   the!
elimination  trials  to  decide  upon  the
American title defender.
LANGFORD GETS DRAW
Paris, April 5.���After several post-'

the American heavyweight pugilists,
was pulled off Saturday night in the
Cirque, Paris. The fight ended in a
draw, although the Boston negro, who
holds the heavyweight championship
of England, completely outclassed his
opponent from San Francisco.

Do vou realize that every train of the
G. T. P. R. R. will be a Hying adver-
' tisement for our city ? The letters
; stand for "Go To Prince Rupert Road"
I ���that's plain. The Grand Trunk chose
j its name well and we are duly grate-
j ful. Just now the Grand Trunk is
I making Prince Rupert but it will not be
I long before Prince Rupert will make
I the Grand Trunk Pacific.
A modern railroad is a wonderful  in-
1 stitution.    Railroad  building  today   is
| not a  gamble, it ia a science.   A rail-
| road that would just make  a town its
I terminus just for the sake of making a
' town would be committing suicide.     It
. would be flirting with the  undertaker,
: as my friend Sheriff Small used to say
back in Missouri.    A  railroad chooses
\ its terminus for the  trade  it can get
' there, for the freight it can bring there |
: and take away from there.    So you see
i the railroad knew exactly what it was
! doing  when  it  chose   Prince   Rupert.
\ We   know   that  many excellent engin-
| eers, many of the ablest business men,
I many   large   capitalists   compose   the
\ railroad, and we know that their collective judgment must be  good  or they
would not be able enginoers, able  business  men or able  capitalists.    They
selected Prince Rupert.    You or I cannot have better judgment in the matter
than they did.    That's our cue to profit
by their judgment.   Stick with  Prince
Rupert and tell your friends about it.
If you don't know  what  to  tell  them
about Prince Rupert  ask   me  and  I'll
tell you what to say.    Also I shall give
you my book of Questions and Answers
on Prince Rupert.   You can either send
that or copy it.    It is easier to send  it
or  I'll  send  it for you.    If you and I
keep on getting busy with  telling the
outsiders about Prince Rupert,  it will
not be long before we will nave twenty-
five  thousand  inhabitants,   then   fifty
and then my prophecy, "The San Francisco of Canada.

MR. A. J. WALTERS OF SEATTLE
IS  IN TOWN TODAY
la Acting aa Agent for American
Clienta Who Wiah to Settle in the
Bulkley and Lakelae Valley Hc
Likea Prince Rupert.
Like Joseph's brethren ol old Mr.
A. J. Walters, for eighteen years a
���imminent real estate man of Seattle,
has come to spy out the land around
Prince Kupert for the purpose of in-
vestemnt.
Mr. Walters arrived here veaterday.
Ne will leave for the Hulkley Valley
district and other parts of the interior
us soon ils the Skeena Uiver fleet sails
and if he can locate good tanning laud
he will buy large plots for himself and
a Dumber "f clients in Seattle and
Spokane who wish to settle in Bruish
Columbia.
"There is a good deal of interest
manifested in the American west by
moneyed people who wish to come
to Prince Rupert and the outlying
country," said the visitor to the Optimist
this morning,
"There is not one real estate auent
in Seattle or Spokane selling Canadian
lands in this part of the country that
has ever seen them, consequently the
people desirous of buying cannot eel
authentic information. I found Americans ure anxious to come here. 1 have
several judges who wish to purehass
160 acre plots of land near Prince
Rupert.
"I intend to locate in the Bulkley
Valley district if 1 can lind a suitable
spot."
Mr. Walters is also interested in
mining matters. He is well pleased

surprised and gladdened by those subscriptions,   the   Women's   Auxiliaiy   oi
the Hospital wro-.e stating that the John :
Houston Ward had been supplied with j
all the necessary bedding and sundry
other articles at a.figure below cost.
Many of the things were made by the
ladies of the Auxiliary. The bill sent
in was for M64 and the Finance Committee will deal with it. The Auxiliary
are going to do a lot more good work
for the hospital.
May Open Hoapital Laundry
It is probable that a laundry will be
established at the hospital. The necessity of this institution was shown when
the Board was asked to pay some
laundry bills for the nurses for last
month which were considered rather
high. These bills amounted to from
$10 to $14. Mr. P. I. Palmer wanted
e ch nurse to be granted a fixed sum
every momh for laundry expenses and
Mr. O. H. Nelson advocated opening a
laundry. The Finance Committee will
report back.
Last year's accounts have not been
auaited yet and some members of the
Br-ard were very sore over this. "Get
an accountant," put in Mr. Palmer.
To an accountant the books will be
loaned and he will report back next
Wednesday when the Boa-d meets again.
It's up to the House Committee to
decide whether John Smith shall connect the sewer of his house with the
sewer of the hospital.
Those present at the Board meeting
were D. G. Stewart, chairman.iO. H.
Nelson. M. M. Stephens. J. G. Scott,
J. H. Thompson. Alderman Kirkpatrick.
H. H. Clarke ar.d P. I. Palmer.
STRIKE IS NEARLY OVER
WORK IS STARTED AGAIN
Strikers Gathered at First Ave. Cut But Were Warned
by the Police Not to Interfere���Work is
Going on Again as Usual
at $3 a Day
It looks as if the labor dispute with
the grading laborers is very near an end
now.
W ith ten men and two horses Messrs.
Mclnnis & KlIIv made a stait today
on their First avenue contract. Chief
Vickers was in attendance with half
a dozen constables, but for the first
hour between seven a.m. and eight
there mas no trouble at all, and the
gang got out a good deal of dirt and
dumped it.
Prominent Men Present
A number of the most prominent
business men of the city were present
at the barriers, their purpose being to
let the workers know that the sympathies of the citizens are with those
who want to work. S. P. McMordie,
the contractor, was present on the cut
with Messrs. Mclnnis & Kelly.
Chief Warned the Strikera
Between seven and eight a.m. a
number of the strikers passed along
the barriers, but they did not show
by word or action anv disposition to
cause trouble. A. O. Morse, secretary
of the P. R. I. A., came up and was
warned by the Chief of Police that
any man crossing the barriers would
be instantly arrested. Chief Vickers
added that Morse himself would be
arrested  if  he  were seen  taking   part
'in or influencing"trouble, and pointed
the secretary out to the force.
Men   Held   Meeting
Morse merely commented upon the
array of constables, and suggested
that" the ending of the strike would
cost something. He then retired with
a few of the strikers to the P. R. I. A.
hall where a gathering of some two
hundred assembled and engaged in
, discussion of the situation.
Will Not Interfere
Seen shortly afterwards by the Optimist, the secretary stated that it was
' not the intention of the P. R. I. A
members to interfere directly with the
men who cared to work.
"It is their own affair." said Mr.
Morse. "If they choose to work for
less money it is their loss. Thp P. R. I. A.
is not going to interfere with them, but
if they work this afternoon it may mean
a general strike."
The Earl Grey's Rifles will hold a
church parade next Sunday. They will
meet at the drill hall in time to attend
the service in the English Church in the
morning.
The steamer Prince Rupert leaves
for the south at eight o'clock tomorrow
morning.

C. D. SHELDON
IS COMING BACK
SAYS HE MEANS TO GET EVEN
WITH CANADIANS IF HE CAN
Blamea Montreal Men for Blackmailing Him and Preventing Him
From Paying 100 Centa to the
Dollar Every Time.
Pittsburg, April 6.���C. D. Sheldon is
anxious to re.urn to Canada, so it
is said, to "expose" some people who.
he alleges, bled him of his money while
he was dealing in stocks. He charges
that two men of Montreal blackmailed
him out of $70,000 and practirally drove
him out of business after he had paid
bark to his patrons over $30,000. If
he had not been molested, he says, he
could have paid back every cent. Sheldon professes to be of the opinion that
if hc gains the Canadian courts his
accusers will be glad to let him go, as
he believes he has enough evidence to
send a large numbei of Canadian citizens
to prison.
