March   I.   The  interest   in
the reciprocity discussion is now all
centred at Wa hington. "What will
the Senate do with the bill?" is the one
great topic of conversation in official
circles.
The Conservatives make no secret
of their wish that the American Senate
will not only fail to pul the measure
through ut thc present session, but
that .resident Taft instead of calling
a special session will allow the matter
to lie until it is taken up at the next
regular session of the Senate.
The Liberals are equally frank in
their hope t at the Senate will force
the nutter through before ending their
deliberation-*, hailing that they are
l.ioking to President Taft to call a special

Melbourne, March II. The federal
government h;.s gone a step further in
its campaign again*-! the Asiatics in Australasia. Regulations have juy* been
issued which wilt hnve lhe eff��ct of
prncically expelling the Orientals who
nre engaged in lhe |warl fi.herics nu the
north conil of West Australia. Although
the trade is worth tn the t'ommnnwnilth
about one hundred thou��;inil pounds
sterling Ihe government has mnde no
scruple in carrying mil ils -ailicy. The
oslensihli reason of the ministry's action
is that the "While Australia" policy
permits of no infringements such aa are
caused by the |iiessnis ol the pearlers
nn lhe coasts hut the real reason is that
the authorities charged wilh th" duty
ol securing the defence ol the iland
continent are anxious lest the Japanese
"houlil have an opportunity of spying

Station Work Prohibited
One point which was made clear wu
that workmen will not be allowed lo
take station work from those contractors who huve refused to grunt the
im-reu.se. Another matter was the
charge for board made by S. P. McMordie on the wuges of six men whom
he had arranged should put up at the
Grand View Hotel. On the declaration
of the strike these men hud been turned
out of the hotel, und on their time
cl ecks their hourd wits charged up.
One worker to whom $58 wus coming
hud, it is suid, $53 deducted for board.
Another to whom $70 wus due had to
draw only $2 Ciah, his board charge
being $70.
Was It for Whiskey.
A member of the execulive committee
said that one of the wcrkfN had explained the high charge for board by
suying thut some of it wus for whisky.
How could a charge be made for whisky
in a board hill ut the Grand View Hotel?
The (irand View Hotel haa no licence.
He thought thut the workers should
demand lhe full amount of the wages
due them und puy their board bills
themselves, und suggested thut if the
contrucmr did nol like this plan, un
appeal to the Government Agent might
help.
Press Reports Criticized
A motion that the press be excluded
from the workers' meetings as the
mover considered that the published
accounts of thc meetings were gnrbled,
wus withdrawn. The chairman, Mr.
W. Prater, informed the mover that both
vitch on the mutter of wuges and his
contruct wus described with the reser-
vution of certain private matters which
the committee had agreed not to give
out. It seems thai Gurvitch's intention is to sec whether the city will muke
Up to him the difference between the
37 1-2 rute und the 45 cent rule, in which
case he is prepared to puy the 45 cents
und start up his contract aguin. If not,
he will consider whether to pay the
45 cent rate himself or throw up the
contract altogether. This contract it
will be remembered is the Third avenue
one whieh waa priced so low that the
bust city council had to consult with
the city engineer before it was thought
advisable to lei the work to Gurvitch.
Have Interpreting Committee
Amongst other business done ut lust
night's meeting was the appointing of
an Interpreting Committee consisting
of members of lhe vurious nutionalities
chosen by the men to act as official
interpreters of proceedings ut the meetings.
Will Meet the Camosun
This morning the Executive Committee
wils in attendance ut the Hull to look
after the detail matters arising, and to
advise the workers. The announcement that 26 laborers engaged by S. P.
McMordie, are expected by the Camosun
tonight, und thnt arrangements huve
been made for them to board at ihe
Westholme Lumber Co.'s premises, was
discussed by some of the men. The
Secretnry staled thut the steamer .will
be met by u strong detuihment of the
workmen in order that these 25 men
may nol be allowed lo land here under
any misupprehensi n whatever regarding
the situation. It is thought that the
men may be coining here in ignorance
f the fact that they are expected to
act as strike-breakers.
RESIGNATION   ASKED   FOR
Ottawa M. H. O. ia Being Accused for
Typhoid Outbreak
Ottawa, March 2.--The typhoid troubles of Ottawa have raised consideruble
criticism of the Board of Health and the
Medical Health officer. There is an
accusation of dereliction of duty regarding the entrance of pollution into the
water supply. Outspoken public opinion
wus replied to by a motion of the Board
of Health agreeing on its own efficiency,
und proposing to raise suluries ull round
This wus the last straw, and the city
council, after a warm debate, asked
the Board of Control to reorganize the
discredited department.
Tonight the Controllers huve asked
for the resignation of Dr. Luw, Med-
ir.il Health Officer, around whose head
the storm has waged. Meantime there
is a serious move in the city towards

Ittaaa,  March 4.   The  interest  in
the reciprocity di-cussion is now all
centred at Wa hington. "What will
the Senate do with the bill?" is the one
great topic of conversation in official
circles.
The Conservatives make no secret
of their wish that the American Senate
will not only fail to put the measure
through at the present session, but
that President Taft instead of calling
a special session will allow the matter
to lie until it is taken up at the next
regular session of the Senate.
The Liberal-* are equally frank in
their hope t at the Senate will force
the mutter through before ending their
deliberations. Falling that they are
l.ioking to President Taft to call a special
meeting of the Senate

Japanese Peorl Fishers on North

Melbourne, March 8. The federal
government has gone a step further in
iis campaign against the Asiatics In Australasia. Regulations have ins' lieen
issued which will have the effect of
practically expelling the Orientals who
arc engaged in the pearl fisheries on the
north coast of West Australia. All hough
the trade Is worth to the Common-emith
about one hundred thousand pounds
sterling the government haa made no
scruple in carrying out its policy. The
Ostensible reason of the ministry's net ion
is that the "White Australia" policy
permits of no infringements such as are
caused by '.he presence of the pearlers
on the coasts but the real reason is that
the authorities charged with th" duty
of securing the defence of the Island
continent are anxious lest tbe Japanese
should have an opportunity of spying
out the lund.
Under the compulsory service luw
125,000 hoys have registered for army
training. These figures -how tt.ut the

Let me settle the matter now, once
and   for   all.     My   dictionary   defines
; hu:i or   as   "a   mental   quality   which
delights in ludicrous antl mirthful ideas."
N w consider, for example, the hobble
skirt. It is ludicrous ar.d mirthful.
Women delight in it. Therefore-Qu;te
so
Men t ndoubtedly possess more humor
than women, but women don't use
theirs up so quickly. A little humor
goes a long way with a woman: she
has an insight for economy.
A sense of humor, remember, does
not lie i.i an ability to laugh. I know-
men who laugh till their ears ache, und
yet they have no real sense of humor.
Many a woman owes her dazzling
smile to her dentist, and not to her
bump of h.mor. A t ing need not
necessarily be funn. because they feel
like it. and many women laugh because
they feel they ought to.
And remember, my son, that a woman
usually laughs her heartiest when she
wants to exasperate a man. And there's
nothing funny in that
There are two certain ways of amusing
a woman with a sense of humor. You
can either propose marriage to her, or
propose to some one else. A woman
always thinks it's fu ny you could
possibly expect her to marry you; und
she always thinks it's funny you could
ever think of marrying any one else.
Comic literature does not appeal to
women unless it is in manuscript, is
delivered by post, an . has a lol of little
crosses al the foot of the page.
The feminine idea ot smart repartee
is to get in the last v. ..ri.s. Any old
words will do, so long as they an the
last. I am such an admirer of wit that
I would give anything to hear the very
last words of some women.���F. Morton
Howard in London Opinion.
slip, then outline with embroidery
cotton to conceal stitches. Outline

The result is even prettier than when
lirst embroidered.
How   About   the   Harem   Sk'rt;
In pen ing the above t elicious bit
of satirical humor about tne hobble
skirt Mr. Morton Howard discre-. ly
forgot to drag in the trousers skirt.
Nothing more clearly proves the interfering naiure of the average man's
humor thun the reports of its reception.
In New York, Madrid and Paris the
wearers were obligetl to seek police
protection. In the latter ab-t.e of
chivalry a cro. d of men threw eggs at
the costume of a woman who was
brave enough to become a pioneer of
the new fashion.
Granted even that women arc taking
a backward step in rationalising their
coBtume to make il more like that of
min, it se. ms an amiis-ii.g impertinence
of any man to say how any woman's
costume should be cut.
USEFUL   HINTS
Children's hair should never be strained tightly olT the forehead if you wish
it to grow thick. Receding hair in later
life is often caused in this way.
Eggs are most easily disgestetl when
eaten raw. If this is impossible, place
them in a pan of nearly boiling water,
and stand at the side of the stove for
seven to eight minutes.
Hot water is a simple drink that
ought to be more popular, for it pro-
moles secretion better than cold, and
is at ull times a Stimulant of no mean
nature. Taken the last tiling at night
and in the early morning this beverage
is a boon to gouty people.

The Council's Plea For Mercy
In the "official advertising medium for the City of Prince Rupert" there
i ppeared last night an article in its editorial column pleading for mercy for the
cily council.   It had all the earmarks of an inspired article.
The plea was based on the ground of consistency; that because the Optimiat
at the close of last year protested against the campaign of abuse and falsehood
against the old council thai therefore it ought to be silent against the shortcomings
and incompetence of the present council.
Consistency has been called "the vice of small minds." In the present case
the appeal to consistency is foolishness and disloyalty. There is no parallel between
the honest, legitimate and courteous criticism which the present council has received
from the Optimist, and the charges of trying to steal the telephone franchise, and
thc flood of "The Mayor is a Liar" editorials which m.iligned the old council.
And not even the Journal would have the audacity to deny thai, the old council
were a race of giants, compared with the preset.t council. ���
The Optimist has no desire to hurt the feelings of any of the members of the
council. As private citizens they are all estimable gentlemen. But as a body
of civic administrators it is hard to grow enthusiastic over them.
Wiih no desite to press criticism on them, let their record stand without comment. They inherited oflice, found the departments organised and the work of
civic development in progress. Tbe electric light plant was well on its way; the
one great question was to secure a new water supply for the city.
Bui what has the council done? They commenced by abolishing the office
of permanent city solicitor, and placed ihe legal patronage on the patronage list.
They 'ook away from the city engineer his privilege of appointing his own staff,
and placed the engineering appointments on the patronage list. In order to fulfil
their election pledges to the Industrial Workers on whose votes the present
council with the exception of Alderman Pattullo were elected to office, the council
brought the ratepayer.**, the contractors and the workingme into conflict, with
the result that the workingmen are no.v i n strike, the contrac ore are at a standstill, and the latepayers are dissatisfied.
If the Journal can find anything to enthuse over in that, it is welcome to its
joy. For our part we decline to liep .-il nee, much less to join in the chorus of
praise led by the Journal.
There is real work to be done by the council, and it would bc the wors-. kind
of disl.-y. Ity to stifle criticism of a council that shows no serious attempt to tackle
the larger pr blems which confront the city. We will remind thc Journal of its
plea later on if a water famine vMta the city, and finds the council still peddling
palronage instead of building waterworks. A water famine will "knock Prince
Rupert"; honest criticism of its council will not.
In the meantime we would remind the council of our pledge on the day
following   heii el ction:
"The Optimist will stand loyally by the new council in its enterprises
launched in good faith, and carried out with regard to public economy.   But
any ui tempt to sacrifice the public weal to satiate the machine, will meet
with a iigor..us and unflinching criticism."
Thai promise still stand .
Hold Down These Stocks
(Toronto Globe)
The Montreal Star has been making an appeal to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, "the
one man who can save Canada." A month ago, according to The Star, certain
very foolish, if not, indeed, treasonable, members of his Government went down
lo Washington and were given a present of "a Trojan Horse." The Star feels
certain that reciprocity horse will bring ruin upon us. Listen:���"If we turn thc
swollen stream of our food exports away from the west-east lines that carry it to
the British market and send it along north-south lines to the American market���
or rather, the American 'middleman' we will utterly shatter the costly steel
hwnework of this nation Ud debase the Dominion lo a string of subject Province
serving the convenience of the nearest American centres. The 'bridge' over the
wildi-rnes*. norlh of Lake Superior will be broken. Confederate n will be cut at
a half-doi-en vital points.     "
That is a very lamentable prospecl. For a few days after The Star's prophecy
business men held their breath awaiting the first tremendous crash of "the costly
steel framework of this nation." But a curious thing happened. The C. P. R.
is, of course, thc most important part of the "costly framework." On the day
upon which thc "Trojan Horse" was turned over to C nada���that is to say, when
the reciprocity agreement was signed���C. P. R. stock sold at 209 1-2. Yesterday
after all thc talk of ruin to our railways as a result of the "breaking of the bridge"
over the wilderness and the cutting out of the cast and west haul, C. P. R. sold
t over 212. If there are any patriots among the operators in C. P. R. let them
keep both hands on the stock. Should it go up any higher its flight will indicate
all too plainly thst there is not a bit of real a preh nsion of injury to Canadian
railways as a result of freer trade with our neighbors.
', ake the canners' case also. Thc canners arc still protesting that ruin stares
them in the face. Yet the price of Canadian Canners common, which was 48
when the agreement was made, has already advanced to 57. The holders of the
stock are thinking of memorializing Mr. Fielding to send on some more canned
ruin and lay in a stahleful of Trojan Horses.

PROSPECTOR IS
LOST IN STORM
SAD   DEATH   OF   YOUNG   JAMES
McELVOY
Waa Lost in Blinding Snow Storm in
the Mountaina on Vancouver Island- -Died of Exposure and Starvation While Alone.
Victoria, March 8.���Lost in a blinding
sno.'. storm in the mountains back of
Rock Bay on Vancouver Mand, with
his food supply entirely exhausted, a
young prospector named James McElvoy
died of exposure and starvation last
Tuesday. Word to this effect was received at the provincial police offi.e
this morning.
McElvoy, accompanied by Gus Miller
and Alfred Hegg, left Rock Bay about
a week ago on a prospecting expedition
through the mountains. After traveling
for a couple of days they lost their wi.y
in the storm. As their food supply was
very scanty and starvation stared them
in the face unless relief could be obtained, Miller and Hegg volunteered
to go back to a cabin some eight miles
away and obtain assistance. McElvoy,
tired from his already strenuous tramp,
decided to remain.
The two prospectors obtained assistance and hurried back to the spot which
had been arranged us a meeting pake.
McElvoy was not wailing and a search
failed to disclose his whereabouts.
Later on the body of McElvoy was
found face downwards about three
hundred yards from the spot where
the trio had originally separated. His
food supply had been entirely exhausted
and only a few charred embers remained
to mutely tell the story of the last struggle which the unfortunate prospector
had made for his life.
With no trail down the mountain side
and with a storm raging, it was impos-
aibel to curry the body down to Rock
McElvoy came from HillBdale, Ont.,
and since coming west had made Vancouver his headquarters. His relatives
in the east have been notified.

STRIKE BREAKERS JOIN THE MEN
CROWD OF A THOUSAND PEOPLE MET THE CAMOSUN  LAST NIGHT���MEN
DID NOT KNOW THAT STRIKE WAS ON
STRIKERS PARADED WITH RED BANNERS
After Meeting the Men from Vancouver the Strikers Formed  a Procession  and
Paraded Up Town to Their Hall���Lots of Enthusiasm But No Disorder
���Banners Had Striking Inscriptions in Many Languages

The blast of the Camosun's whistle
laat night was answered by the trampling
of hundreds of Uet do n Centre street.
About u thousand people, striken and
other people Interested, urrted to the
wharf to meet the suamer. Rumors
that a number of laborers were to arrive
from Vancouver to work for McMordie
had been pretty well confirmed, anil lhe
members of the I'. R. I. A were ready
wiih u welcome for the party.
Had Red Banners
Penetrating the darkness, the searchlight on the Camosun's bridge lit up
a serried mass of men crowding closely
at her landin berth. Red banners
bearing in white letters the legend
"Strike On. Don't be a scab. Be a
MAN." were held aloft by the men
in front. The banners were worded
in different language , an I strong ��� e.ik-
ers of v rious nationalities stO' d ready-
to shout out the stal* oi affairs to the
newcomers as soon as the steamer got
within hearing distance.
Men Were Surprised
On the Camosun's foreijeck could
be seen clustered a group of some fifty
nii'ii gazing in surprise at the crowd on
the wharf above. Seamen's voices
first hailed at the wharf, and the news
"Strike On" was shouted to the officers
by the shore officials. Before the heaving lines came ashore a babel of voices
broke out forward and on the wharf.
Si-me of the whirlwind orators ol foreign
races represented amongst the strikers
got in a rush of explanation for their
comrades on thc steamer, and a fusillade
pf question and answer was kept up as
the Camosun tied up.
Joined the Striken ,
Before thc gangway was run ashore
it was all over. Arrived here in absolute
ignorance that a strike had been declared the little band of laborers on the

steamer had declared themselves with
their comrades on the wharf. They
would join the ranks of the strikers.
They would not scab. "We would
rather cut our throats than scab" some
of them are said to have cried.
Had Triumphal Pr cesaion
Once ashore the laborers numbering
about thirty, lined up in thc sheH and
as soon as they emerged they were
greeted by the strikers. In a body
the men then marched oil lo their hall
shouting and cheering as they passed
throgh the city. At the hall a meeting
was held for t a benefit of the newcomers, and the situation was explained
to them more fully than had been
possible at the landing. They confirmed
their intention not to "scab." There
was neither violence nor the threat of
violence. The newcomers simply fell
in with their countrymen as it had
bien predicted they would do.

TELKWA   IS  PLEASED
Look for Mining Boom to Follow the
Railway
Telkwa, March 1.- Thc news that
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway has
consented lo construct a branch line
from the main line to tap the Silver
Cup, Lead King and other mines in
Nine Mile mountain is most encouraging
to the people of this place. It is looked
u|ion merely as the first of such r ilway
facilities for the development of the
mines of the district.
James Cromin will no doubt get one
to his mine in Babble mountain a few
miles east of Telkwa, which branch can
be "under ronstructio next fall: then
there will be extensive development
in the Hudson Bay mountains to the
west of Telkwa from ivhieh urn can be
shipped as soon as a branch is completed, and the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway will havu to build a branch
to their own coal mines up the Telkwa
river and  almost  within sight  of this
town, as soon as they begin running
traina between Telkwa and Prince
Rupert.
The incoming stage this week brought
in a big load of passengers for Fort
Qeorge. Every week brings news of
others who are preparing to come in
soon. That we may expect a big rush
of settlers and others into Fort George
and district in the early spring is becoming more and more certain. It is
lo be hoped that the government will
take early action in regard to the opening
of a Government Office here, and the
building ol roads and the installing
of ferries which have been petitioned
lor and whirl-, are an absolute necessity
to the community.    !ort George Herald.
