Her First Capture
(Special to Optimist)
Victoria, Feb. 24-The Canadian cruiser "Rainbow" steamed
into Victoria harbor last night
with the American fishing schooner "Edrie" in tow. The cruiser
captured the schooner nfter a
chase, and her captain is charged
with fish-poaching in the Hecate
Straits. The vessel will bc held
here, pending the result of her
captain's trial.
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, Feb. 24.���Thc deadlock
caused by the judgment of Judge
Gregory declaring the recent municipal
elections in Victoria invalid, because
the voters' list was made up from the
assessment roll instead of from the
registrar's returns, was broken today
by the Legislature appointing ex-Mayor
Morley and the members of the ex-
Board of Aldermen, as a special commission to carry on the routine work of
government, pending the reult of a new-
election.
The commission is limited in its
jurisdiction to matt rs of routine and
to those matters of business which were
before the council at the time of dissolution. The commission is precluded
from initiating any new work or from
submitting money by-laws to the people.
A discussion of the various amendments to the Coal Mines Bill led the
House into almost an all night sitting.
It was turned two o'clock this morning
when a motion to adjourn was put.
Most of the time was taken up with
discussing the amendments moved by
Messrs. Hawthornthwaite and Williams.
With one exception they were all rejected. Williams moved f< r a second
reading of his hardy annual to compel
large companies to pay wages not less
often that once every two weeks, but
this was laid over on a motion by Hay-
ward.
One important bill brought in by
Williiims passed -its second reading.
It provides under certain circumstnnces
for the support and maintenance of
wives who have been deserted by their
husbands.

Wounds the Second Highwayman,
and Effects His Capture -A Sensational AITair.
(Special to the Optimist)
Seattle, Feb. 24. A sensational duel
with revolvers between two policemen
and two highwaymen whom they surprised has excited the people of Seattle
As a result of the affair, Patrolman John
T. Davis is lying dead along with one
of the highwaymen, while the other
highwayman, John Forger, is lying at
the hospital under guard suffering with
serious wounds.
The two robbers *ho arc believed to
have been responsible f��r several holdups of late were surprised by the patrolmen. Opening tire one of the men shot
down Officer Davis, who revenged himself after being hit by a well directed
shot which brought down his assailant.
The other officer promptly fired at his
man, wounding hum severely. Precautions are being taken to prevent
Forger from doing himself injury at the
hospital.
"Thc report of the Committee of
the whole on the wages question will
be presented to the city council on
Monday night." That is the official
knnouncement this morning regarding
the proceedings at last night's important
meeting of acting mayor and aldermen
in committees as a whole to discuss
the 46 cent rate.
The committee as a whole will report
to the council on Monday night, but
not as a result of last night's deliberations only. The truth about last
night's meeting is that after a protracted
sitting with endless discussion, motion,
and counter-motion the result was
simply "As you were."
Some time on Saturday, probably at
eight p.m., the committee of thc whole
will sit again, for the report has got
to be before the council on Monday
night. It had been fondly hoped that
after last night's meeting the matter
would have been settled at least so far
as a decided definite report one way
or the other was concerned. Rut
midnight saw a still undecided group of
weary aldermen still arguing, still gesticulating, still in disagreement. A'�� the
hour wore on towards 1 a. m. they did
manage to agree, but only to call a
truce and go home to bed.
Whenever   thc   question   got   nicely
smoothed out one way it got all balled
up in another direction. The existing
contracts seem to be at the root of the
difficulty. On that point the advice
of the city solicitor has been that the
city is on very dangerous ground in
the event of thc 45 cent rate being
granted. The effect of this advice has
been to keep the issue in the melting
pot so much the longer. In the melting
pot it still remains.
Rumors current in the city today that
a straight 40 cent rate had been decided on for recommendation to the
council, or that the demand had been
turned down fiat by unanimous decision,
are without foundation.
WALTER STEVES IS DEAD
Well Known Prospector Died at the

Walter T. Steves, a well known
prospector, died at the hospital early
this morning of Hrights disease. He
was only 37 years of age. but had been
prospecting for many years, -' Steves-
town on the Fraser River was named
after his family. It is probable he
body will be sent south for burial.

RECIPROCITY WOULD END
ALL THOUGHT OF WAR
Baltimore American In Striking Article Says Canada
Could Dispense With Navy If Reciprocity
Goes Into Effect���A Novel View
of Trade Question
pji & tj*5 Site rftj $> *i tii & t��i Hi
tfijinOj   '
Baltimore,   Feb.  20.���The  American
makes  some striking  remarks  on  the
[reciprocity agreement with Canada.   It
says:
"While tho English Unionists harp
upon the string of American cupidity
and domination, and while some English newspapers warn Canada that it
is yielding what it has in its entire
history fought against- thc overshadowing of its destiny by its big neighbor���
the clear-headed Briton and the clearheaded Canadian both see that the
general social and political advantages
gained would be immense. There could
virtually be no war between the United
States and England with such an agreement in force and with the resulting
catholicity of capital in enterprise on
either side of the line. Canada might
even dispense with the building of its
| proposed warships against possible assault from the East, as the United
j States would have an intimacy of
interest in the destiny of Canada that
would act as powerfully as does the
Monroe Doctrine elsewhere upon the
Continent.
"England has all to gain by drawing
tighter the cords between its principal
dependancy and the United States.
The tie of sympathy with the mother
country of both peoples would be
greatly strengthened, and the United
States  would  be  regarded   by  Europe
as having pledges with Great Britain
firmer than those of treaties. It is not
drawing the bow too strong to add that
in the event of England becoming involved in war it might be of vast service
to her to have free trade across the
border of Canada for the foodstuffs
she would need for the provisioning of
her armies and of her people at home.
It is inconceivable that any rational
Englishman or Canadian should <=mell
territorial ambition in the reciprocity
proposal. It is also inconceivable that
any rational American should not perceive that community of commercial
interest that would be established and
would act as a fresh expansion of the
United States- an expansion that would
not violate the rights or offend the
sensibilities of its neighbor, but, upon
the other hand, would bring to Canada
trade advantages and general material
promotion. The subject will not be
downed; the purpose of Mr. Taft will
not admit of defeat.

Trouble is browing for someone over
the   spectacular   blast   that   went   off
on First avenue ul six p.m. Tuesday.' "bf schedule will be much appreciated.
Those who saw it at the moment were
appalled at the reckless rocketting of
earth, planks, and huge masses of
stone. Right over First, Second and
Third avenue soared some of the stones.
One fragment as big as a boy's head hit
the ground half way up the bluff between
Third and Fourth avenues.
Worse still, a mighty chunk of rock
hurled by the explosion about five
hundred feet in the air, came down
squarely on the Edge Huilding's roof.
Rending and crashing its way earthwards, it shattered shingles, rafters,
ceilings, flooring and everything in its
way. Only the last timber between
the building and the ground stopped it.
On the upper floor of the building
within a foot or two of the missile's
track, Mr. Edge himself was seated
at supper when the stone fell. By a
sheer chance lie escaped instant death.
Below in the. front store his assistant
stood by the stove not three feet from
the spot where the rock crashed onto
a pile of mouldings which it completely
pulverised. Both men take the matter
remarkably coolly, though merely to
look at the track of the rock is enoui
to make a man feel queer al the thought
of being anywhere near it when il fell.
On the upper floor of the building a
pile a fool thick of stout millboard
which a rifle bullet could ��carcely
penetrate effectively, was pierced like
tissue paper.
It is all a man can do merely to lift
the rock which did the damage. No one
is bothering about the lesser fragments
which broke windows, nnd split shingles
without coming through. But one
twenty pound stone pierced the roof of
an adjoining shack, and a second 250
pound mass just missed the Edge store
by six inches, and buried itself harmlessly in the earth.
Today Alderman Clayton enquired
into the matter, and looked at the
damage done. It is said thc shot was
fired on L. Vuckwitch's section of
First avenue grading.

COMMISSION APPOINTED
TO GOVERN VICTORIA
Ex-Mayor Morley and the Ex-Aldermen Nominated by
L- o-islature���House Sat Till Two This Morning
Discussing Coal Mines Act���Bill to Protect Deserted Wives
(Special to the Optimisti
Victoria, Feb. 24.���The deadlock
caused by the judgment of Judge
Gregory declaring the recent municipal
elections in Victoria invalid, because
the voters' list wns made up from the
assessment roll instead of from the
registrar's returns, was broken today
by the Legislature appointing ex-Mayor
Morley and the members of the ex-
Bonrd of Aldermen, tts a special commission to carry on the routine work of
governmtnt, pending the reult of a new
election.
The commission is limited in its
jurisdiction to mutt rs of routine und
to those matters of business which were
before the council at the time of dissolution. The commission is precludetl
from initiating any new work or from
submitting money by-laws to the people.
A discussion of the various amendments to the I mil Mines Bill led the
House into almost un all night sitting.
It was turned two o'clock this morning
when  a  motion  to adjourn  was  put.
Most of the time was taken up with
discussing the amendments moved by
Messrs. Hawthornthwaite and Williiirr.s.
With one exception they were all rejected.    Williams moved  ft r a second
1 reading of his hardy annual to compel
' large compunies to puy wages not less
I often thut once every two weeks, but
I this was laid over on a motion by Hay-
ward.
One important bill brought in by

"Thc report of the Committee of
the whole on the wages question will
be presented to the city council on
Monday night." That is the official
announcement this morning regarding
the proceedings at last night's important
meeting of acting mayor and aldermen
in committees as a whole to discuss
the 46 cent rate.
The committee as a whole will report
to the council on Monday night, but
not as a result of last night's deliberations only. The truth ubout last
night's meeting is that after a protracted
sitting with endless discussion, motion,
and counter-motion the result was
simply "As you were."
Some time on Saturday, probably at
eight p.m., the committee of the whole
will sit again, for the report has got
to be before the council on Monday
night. It had been fondly hoped that
after last night's meeting thc matter
would have been settled at least so far
as a decided definite report one way
or the other was concerned. But
midnight saw a still undecided group of
weary aldermen still arguing, still gesticulating, still in disagreement. As the
hour wore on towards 1 a. m. they did
manage to agree, bul only to cull a
truce and go home to bed.
Whenever   the   question   got   nicely
smoothed out one way it got all balled
up in another direction. The existing
contracts seem to be at the root of the
difficulty. On that point the advice
of the city solicitor has been that the
city is on very dangerous ground in
the event of the 45 cent rate being
granted. The effect of this advice has
been to keep thc issue in thc melting
pot so much the longer. In thc melting
pot it still remains.
Rumors current in the city today that
a straight 40 cent rate had been decided on for recommendation to the
council, or thut thc demand hud been
turned down (hit by unanimous decision,
are without foundation.

Simple Life and Healthy Food
Maurice Hcwlitt, by his novels, has
done much to popularize the itlea of
the simple life, though the practice
of it lags some distance in the rear
Much more practical is thc interest
in healthy food. A Simple Life and
Healthy Food conference will be held
shortly in London. It will be quite an
unusual affair. The platform of thc
hall in which it is to be held will represent a meadow carpeted with grass
and flowers. Tents will be fixed here,
and wax ligures will recline inside on
thc latest hygienic bed. From this
unconventional platform addresses will
be given by well known doctors, and
also by the "Derbyshire wolf"���the
resourceful enthusiust and disciple of
Thoreau, who lived in caves on the
Derbyshire hills for seven months
All the accomplishments of the simple
life will be exhibited, including meals
of uncooked food which ure guaranteed
to support a family for a dollar and a
half a week. The spreading of taste
for this uncooked food is one of the
chief objects of thc conference, and
several people will be there who will
tell the visitor that they live quite
successfully on nothing but fruit, nuts,
brown bread, cereals and olive oil.
The organizing secretary, Mrs. Ernest
Schofield, has strong views on this
point. "There is far too much ccoking
nowadays," she says. "Time and
money are wasted in quite an unnecessary way, and illness and bad
temper arc caused. Tuke the case of
a young married couple. In nine cases
out of ten the wife knows very little
about cooking, but the husband feels
obliged to say that she cooks better
than anyone else in the world, nnd the
result is that his health and temper
suffer considerably. Every young husband shoultl tuke a lirm stand at the
beginning and insist either on having
his food prepared properly, or on having
only uncooked food, which is much
cheaper and often a great deal more
healthy."
Luxury is condemned, because it
does not spring from uny desire for
greater comfort, but from a desire to
excel one's neighbors. Thc wearing
of expensive jewelry, furs, rare feathers
and extravagant clothes is traced to
the passion for ostentation and display,
and is condemned as a common cause
of financial embarrassment and con-
sequent ill-health.
An exhibition will be given of how a
house should be furnished from the
health  point   of view.    "There should
Aids to Health and Beauty
Yawning, expect in polite society,
should bc indulged in rather than repressed. The reason why? A good,
free, unrestricted yawn counteracts the
effect of laughing. Just stop and think
how often we laugh und how seldom���
j comparatively���we yawn. The muscles
are stretched in one direction while
laughing, and by constant repetition
little lines are formed around the comers
of the mouth. Yawning stretches these
same muscles in exactly the opposite
direction and therefore tends to undo
the mischief caused by our good humor.
Yawn, but don't stop laughing, or
you will be like the woman who, at an
advanced age, had not a line or wrinkle in her face, but whose countenance
was entirely expressionless. Dreading
these same lines and wrinkles, she had
all her life schooled her features to
express nothing of joy or sorrow.
SOME BAKED DISHES
Baked Beans in Furnace
Prepare beans just as you would for
baking in the oven. Then place pan
just inside furnace door. Cook all day.
Place in oven half hour before serving
to brown them. Can be cooked in a
granite pan or jar. Turn pan around
two or three times during the day.
Baked Macaroni and Oysters
Take 5 cents' worth of macaroni,
boil until tender; butter the bottom of
the bake dish; put in layer of macaroni,
then layer of oysters, sprinkle wilh salt,
pepper, and small bits of butter; then
add another layer of macaroni, then
more oysters, and continue alternating
until bake dish is nearly full. Cover the
top layer wilh cracker crumbs, dotted
with bits or butter. Pour over enough
milk or thin cream to come to top.
Bake from one-half to three-quarters
of an hour.
Think* it Will be Good for Canada
(From the N. Y. Evening Post)
Are the progressive men of Iowa
alseep at the switch? asks frantically
Senator and Editor Lafayette Young
of the Des Moines Capital. Do they
not realize, he agonizes, that if this
"so-called trade agreement" with Canada is to bc voted by Congress, the farmers of the United States will be "made
to compete with all the pauper labor and
cheap lands of the world?" As for
Canada, Senator Young's opinion of
whut the agreement will mean to the
Dominion ought to end any possible
opposition to it there. If the agreement passes, Mr. Young says, there
will be a "tremendous rush" for Canada on the part of the farmers, "one
hundred millions of dollars of Iowa
money will be invested in Canada
lands this year���1911," and "ten or
twenty dollars" will be added to.the
value of every producing acre in Canada -in which case the Iowa farmer
who wants to mike money had better
go to Canada by the first train.

LAND  PURCHASE NOTICE
COAL NOTICE
Nelson, Feb. 23.���Particulars of ai
deal involving the sale of SHOO acres of
coal land on (iraham Island, one of the
Queen Charlotte Group, have been \*i\-
en out by Mr. M. R. McQuarrie, who
was one of the Kootenay owners of the
property which has been trasnferred
for a large cash consideration to the
British Pacific Coal & Coke Company,
Limited. The other vendors were \Y.
McMorris, now of Vancouver, and
Thomas Morrow of Rossland.
The property is located a few milea
from Skidegate harbor and is a portion
of a large coal area worked as far back
as 1868 by a Scotch company, which
shipped coal lo Esquimalt and to San
Francisco.
The story of the hardships undergone by the officials and the men employed by the old Scotch company back
in the late sixties and of the company's final failure, is told in a number of reports made by the long dead
engineer of the former company, and
which are now in the possession of Mr.
McQuarrie. In one report it is related
how the Indians harassed the miners
by creeping into their stockades and
stealing their provisions, obtained at
great expense from Victoria.
The last report explains how, through
the loss of a sailing sh'p loaded with
coal, sold to a firm in San Francisco,
the company finally became involved
in financial difficulties, which resulted
in the closing down of the property.
This load of coal was expected to supply
the company with sufficient money lo
pay for a shipload of machinery which
was coming from Fr.gland, via Cape
Horn, and also to pay the overdue wages
of the men.
HOME RULE WILL
END TROUBLES
JOHN    REDMOND    HAS    GREAT
HOPES FOR IRELAND
Premier Asquith Has the Confidence
of the Irish Party in His Efforts to
Solve the Problem of Ireland's
Troubles.
London, Feb. 22.-Speaking upon the
Home Rule question in the House of
Commons yesterday, Mr. John Redmond, on behalf of the Nationalists,
stated that he honestly believed Home
Rule, as defined by Mr. Asquith, would
be the final settlement of this question.
Mr. Churchill, the home secretary,
said if they could reconcile the Irish
and English people and rally the Irish
Nationalists around the monarchy, an
advantage equal to many divisions of
fleet and army would be gained. Moreover, he added, the relations of every
one of the self-governing colonies with
the Mother Country would be rendered
more intimate and more.cordial.
Mr. William O'Brien did not doubt
that Home Rule ultimately would
come. He doubted the possibility of
carrying the measure in the present
Parliament, however, but promised the
Premier the hearty co-operation of his
party.
Mr. Augustine Birrell, chief secretary
for Ireland, in summing up the debate,
said that Ireland alone could deal adequately with her own affairs. He
promised the government's Home Rule
scheme would be placed before the
House as soon as thc Parliament Bill
passed.

Fire Drill in the School
The article on another page from the pen of Mr. Norman Mackintosh of
the Optimist stalT, describing yesterday afternoon's lire drill at the school, will
be read with interest by all who have children at the school, and by all others
who lake an interest in thejihysical welfare of "young Rupert."
It is appalling enough to know that on this North American continent we
offer up a burning sacrifice to the red monster of nearly a million dollars a day;
that the per capita property loss by lire in Canada and the United States is $3.00
as computed wirh |0*83 in lhe European countries. This is part of the price we
must pay for our rapid commercial development which demands I he use of wood
for structural purposes in young communities, instead of the less combustible
brick and steel and sione of the older countries.
This loss, however appalling, can be borne bravely enough. Even under such
a crushing succession of fire-swept hopes, as lhat of the late Mr. E. B. Eddy of
Hull, most men, like him can pomvoa onward. But the case is different when
the lire-demon demands human sacrifices. And no records of firelosses are more
heart rending than thos*' which tell of lire and panic in the schools.
Some four years ago a disastrous lire broke out in one of the Toronto schools
where four hundred children, trained lo march out in orderly array at the sound
of the lire gong, walked laughingly out to safely, in the belief that it was just another lire drill. In their case the smoke did not alarm them, for some dampened
smouldering paper in a bucket in the basement had been always formed a necessary
prelude to the ordinary drill. Within thirty-five minutes of the ringing of the
gong, nothing but four brick walls remained to show that ever a school had stood
upon the site.
Shortly afterwards occurred the disatrous school lire at Hochelaga, where
a large number of children, and one heroic teacher who had entered the building
once loo often in quest of the panic stricken children, met horrible deaths.
Children fortunately are more susceptible to order than are their seniors ut
a time of crisis. Perhaps because their imaginations are less dcvelo|>ed, their
actions are governed more by mechanical than by emotional processes. They
nre less likely to get out of hand, if previously instructed how to act, than are
adults. Indeed the mat ler-of-fact ness of one little boy at yesterday's drill supplied
the glint of humor which is necessary to complete uny picture. The little chap
uncertain in his mind whether it was a real lire or not, stepped back from his line
to get a pencil box, containing hix schoolboy treasures, in order to make sure that
his estate would suffer no loss in the Dairies if the worst happened.
In inaugurating the weekly fire drill ut the school, Principal Hunter and his
staff, have instituted a work which is a pleasure und safeguard from disaster to
thc little ones under their care, and a source of relief to those interested in the
welfare of the scholars.
Tonight's Big Meeting
The Liberal executive in deciding to muke tonight's big meeting in Mclntyre
Hull open to the general public, to the ladies as well as lo the men, und to keep
the meeting free from party politics have acted in a public spirited manner. The
question of reciprocal trade relations between Canada and the United States is
too important lo be turned into a party football, und the record of history���the
fuct thut every Government of Cunadu before und since Confederation, both
Conservative and Liberal, have sought to bring about reciprocul relations���is
against any such attempt.
So too, the decision to open the meeting lo the ladies, while prompted ut
first hy the interest in thc question shown by the ludies is an evidence thnt thc
world is moving on in the right direetion. No question of recent .time so much
concerns our women us docs reciprocity, for they nre the purchasing agents for
most of the race. Any measure which affects the price of commodities directly
affects their interests.
It was necessary that someone should call a meeting to discuss this important
question, but in undertaking that work, thf. Liberal executive have acted properly
in deciding lo keep the question out nf parly politics.

STRIKE AGAINST
ORDER TO LOAF
QUEEREST STRIKE ON  RECORD
IS NOW IN FORCE
Chicago Sheet Metal Workers and
the Carpenters Quarrel Over Who
Should Hang a Tin Door -Contractors Offer Results in Strike.
Chicago, Feb. _.l. The queerest slrike
on lecor'd is on here today. Thousands
have walked out because they wanted
more pay and shorter hours, but the
Sheet Metal Workers at the New
Columbia theatre struck rather than
obey an order to loaf at full pay.
The hanging of a door is responsible
for the trouble. Heretofore carpenters
have hung the theatre doors and they
started to hang this particular one.
This door, however, was no ordinary
one, but was covered with sheet metal
and the metal workers declared that it
was their job. The carpenters claimed
that ihey should do il. To settle lhe
difficulty the contractors offered to pay
the metal workers their full sixty cenis
an hour to loaf while the carpenters
finished the job. Nothing doing When
the same offer was made to the carpenters they, too, refused to loaf. When
thc contractors ordered both unions
to leave the door unhung, the metal
workers struck.
TERRIBLE FIRE
AT T0N0PAH
TWELVE MEN AT LEAST PERISH
IN THE FLAMES
Flames  Break  Out  in  the  Timber
Yards   of   the   Belmont   Mine
Smoke Entered the Shaft Killing
Numbers by Suffocation.
(Special to the Optimist)
Toponah, Nevada, Pel). 24.- -At least
twelve men, and probably many more
are lying dead in the shafts of the
Belmont mine here as the result of a
fire which broke out in the timber yards
early this morning.
The flames and smoke were driven
by thc wind into the mine mouth completely cutting off the way of escape
of the unfortunate men at work below.
Some of those who managed to escape
tell of seeing the bodies of twelve men
in a heap at the 1166-ft. level, while
others are known to be lying dead at
the foot of thc shaft who were brushed
from the cage in thc first ascent after
the alarm was given. Those who fell
were badly mangled and perished of
suffocation as the Btnoke cntertd the
mine.
Large volumes of smoke are issuing
from the mine now, all hough the flames
in thc timber yard are put out.
PETITION BEING
SIGNED UP
ONLY THREE NAMES BLACK LISTED  SO  FAR
Petition Committee Pleased With
Response to Their Request for Signatures���Constitution Amended.
P. R. I. A. Must Have Larger Hall.
Again last night a big gathering of
P. R. I. A. members assembled in the
hall on Third avenue. The principal
business before the meeting was the
report of the committee appointed to
circulate the petition in favor of the
45 cent rate for signature by the business
men of the city. So f. r only three names
were reported by the committee as
having refused to sign.
An important matter was also discussed lust night, viz., the amendment
of the constitu ion. It is now necessary
to have this and thcby-laws framed in
at least three languages for the benefit
of the non-Eng ish speaking members.
Arrangements will be curled out without
delay to have the transla ion and
reprinting done. ��� It was also decided
last night to forward to Aldermun
Morrissey copies of the constitution
und by-laws thu he muy understand
that the P. R. I. A. is not the irresponsible assemblage he supposed.

IS
Bad Judgment in Drilling Caused a
Back-fire Which Wrecked a Store
Two Blocks Away and Endangered
Human Life.
Important to contractors and all
concerned in blasting work in connection with the city street grading or
other rock work within city limits, is
thc decision of the magistrate this
morning in the case of Louis Lackavitch
found guilty of having carelessly covered
a blast fired on First avenue grading
near Stiles Place on Tuesday evening.
The explosion threw rock lar and wide
and damaged one building badly, be
sides endangering life. Lackavitch was
fined $10 and costs, and warned sharply
by the magistrate.

FRIENDLY MESSAGES NO. 3
I had a letter from a man in Maine.
He says he has $5,000 to invest, and
wants to come here. He wants to buy
a farm. Have you got the farm this
man wants? If you have, better tell
me about it and I may bring you two
together.
Another man, from Minnesota, wants
to buy business property. How about
it? Have you any business property
you want to sell.
But what's the use of telling you
all about thc various propositions that
come to me from outside. One mail
brought me over 200 inquiries; at least
ten of the writers want to come out
right away.
If it's anything in tha real estate

Jthepupils were busy with their lessons.
I Suddenly  live sharp  strokes of  the

(t> pupils rose quietly in their seats,
J without u second's hesitation filed

lichid ilu latety gone in a very few
���onds.  Siiiinr boys quickly examined
the tleserted classrooms und cloakrooms to muke sure that every single
scholar had got out.   Last of all the
teachers left the building. As quickly
and thoroughly wus the drill curried
out on the ground floor. The tiny
tots streamed out to safety In splendid
order. Watchfully their teachers re-
siruined the tendency to excitement,
There wus hardly u sound but the swift
steady movement of hundreds of
small feet, no chatter, no screaming,
but un orderly exit exactly according to
lire-drill directions.
There are three lines of hose all
ready for Instant action on the Boon
of the new school, and two or three of
the older boys ure trained to go immediately to the assistance of the
janitor in handling the lire appliances.
This work was done wit h great precision
pn Thursday afternoon.
Within one minute the whole two
hundred odd scholars present during
the drill were outside the building, and
in absolute safety from harm had the
fire been a real one. All pupils are
instructed in the event of fire to go
straight home und report themselves
safe. For drill purposes they remain
lined up outside the basement doors
of the school until the signal to return
to their classroom is given.
Fire Chief Mclnnis expressed himself thoroughly  well  pleased  wiih  the
manner In which the scholurs responded
to the fire ulurm on Thursday, He
hnd visited the school entirely unexpectedly, and was surprised to find
the scholurs so proficient in this important drill after so few practices.
Thursday's wus only the second full
fire-drill.
While at the school, the Fire Chief
took lhe opportunity of going over the
fire appliances with the janitor, and
found them in perfect working order.
Present pupils of the school will be
kept thoroughly well versetl in the lire-
drill, so that us the roll increases new-
pupils will follow the example of their
seniors in the classes naturally, nnd B
continuous system of efficiency in this
respect will bc established.

Miss Piano -Are you fond of music?
Mr.   Forte   Yes,   very,   but   please
don'l slop playing on my account.
Wandering over a field one day a
man came across tt large stone inscribed:
"Turn me over."
After much difficulty he succeeded
in turning it over, and found on the
other side of (lie stone the words;
"Now turn me buck again so
that 1 can catch some other dum fool."
"Oh, John," exclaimed Mrs. Short-
cash, who was reading a letter, "our
son has been expelled from college.
Isn't it awful?"
"Oh, I don't hnow," answered  Mr.
Shortcash.  "Perhaps 1 can pull through
without making an assignment now."
"How is your daughter getting along
with her vocal lessons?"
"Splendidly, splendidly She's got so
now that she can say 'I can't sing
without my music' just beautifully.
A "new missing" word contest has
just appeared. It is as follows: A
good church deacon sat down on the
pointed end of a tack. He .at once
sprang up und said only two words.
The last was "it." Any one guessing
the lirst word and sending live dollars
in cash will be entitled to The Op.imint
for one year.

Vancouver, Feb. 22.���Acting upon instructions from the locul Provincial
police office, the officer at Steveston and
Constable Davidson of Nanaimo, left
this afternoon for the scene of the
wreck of the Cottage City, which was
lost about three weeks ago off Cape
Mudge, in the Seymour Narrows. During a .heavy snow storm the vessel
grounded hard and after being battertd
about for several days by the heavy
seas, finally broke in two.
The night the Cottage City struck
the Indians at Cape Mudge broke into
the bar and for several duys there were
"doings" among the tribe. When ull
the liquor wus disposed of the Indians
made frequent raids upon the wreck,
carrying away anything that might
prove valuable. The salving steamer
Salvor, owned by the B. C. Marine
Railwuys Company, worked for some
time on the wreck, and although Cape
Jansen of the ill-fated steumer, nnd
two of the crew remained there until a
couple of days ugo. thc Indians still
kept up raiding the vessel.
The provincial police were notified
and several arrests are expected.

BRIGHT EVENING
IN S. A. HALL
LARGE    AUDIENCE   ENJOY    EXCELLENT PROGRAM
Entertainment Presided Over by Ex-
Mayor Stork. Musical Selections
by Gray's Orchestra. Humorous
Songs, Recitations.
In the brightly lighted S. A. Citadel
last night, a big gathering enjoyed a
very successful entertainemnt. Ex-
Mayor Fred Stork presided, and opened
the evening's pleasure wilh a few remarks
in strong support of the Army's work
and influence for good in the community.
Ensign Johnstone was not able to be
present, as he left by the Prince George
last night on the way to Vancouver
on important Army business. Mrs.
Johnstone was present, however, and
contributed to the long an varied
program, while Captain Kerr and Lieutenant Wright also shared largely in
making the entertainment a success.
The presence of Gray's Orchestra
ensured the excellence of the msuical
items; Mr. and Miss Gray giving several greatly appreciated musical selections. Miss Ethel Gray whose clever
dancing is well known to Prince Rupert
audiences proved herself also a clever
reciter. Amusing songs by Mr. J.
Russell made a great hit, and songs
in Scandinavian by Mrs. Davidson to
guitar accompaniment were very pretty.
Little Georgie Johnstone, "The Drummer Boy" took part in a dramatic
recitation by Johnny Law, which pleased
exceedingly. Mr. Miller's cornet solos
were epjoyed, and Captain Kerr's and
Mrs. Hoy's recitations came in well.
A very pretty exhibition of bar-bell
exercises and Indian club swinging
was given by Lieutenant Wright to
music, and the perfect precision and
time kept throughout a series of graceful movements with the brightly be-
ribboned bar-bells and silver clubs
proved the Lieutenant an expert. Lieutenant Wright instructs the children
attending the S. A. Band of Love in
similar exercises and the youngsters
greatly enjoy their lessons.
Some time after ten o'clock the
entertainment terminated with a service
of excellent coffee and cakes. Mrs.
Johnstone and her able aide-de-camp
Lieutenant Wright, provide all the
good things for the Army's entertainments themselves, and no flaw has ever
been found in the fare liberality provided.
The local officers wish to thank all
who contributed to the evening's sue-
cess.   In about three week, a chtt^
