STEAMER SPOKANE LOST
NEAR SEYMOUR NARROWS
One Passenger a Woman Name is Unknown is Missing---Feared
She Was Drowned by Jumping Into the Water in a Panic
When the Vessel Was Beached---Were Two Hundred
on Board-���Vessel is Probably a Total Wreck
The passenger steamer Spokane
of the Pacific Coast excursion fleet,
is row lying on thc rocks near
the Seymour Narrows, a total
wreck, and one of the passengers,
a woman whose name is not yet
known, is missing from the roll.
By ihe prompt action of the
vessel's captain a dreadful dis-
aster was averted, for the S.S.
S|n:lv.iiu- is a large wooden steamer
nearly as big as thc State of
California, and she was crowded
tiiih over two hundred excursionists making the Alaska trip
from v.ittic and the South. .
In the Dreaded Narrows
Rinlit in the fierce tide-rip that
tears through Uie Seymour Nar-
rowj the most ticklish place all
along the coast here, the Spokane
tnik a sudden sheer at 11 p.m.
mi Thursday night. She touched
nek and ii tore along her bottom.
Water |ioured in, and realising
thai the vessel was in peril, her
captain ran her ashore promptly
in Plumpers Hay. Here she set-
tlnl quickly, and there was some
(..-nicer of a panic amongst the
piissengers. Lifeboats were swung
nil however, and very quickly
""li r was regained by the officers.
"in- or two passengers, thinking
the steamer was sinking   leapt
for their lives, and when thc boats
got ashore and the list was gone
over the report got out that a
number had lieen drowned. Several were missing but these turned
up one by one later.
One Believed Drowned
One woman, however, was not
found after the rest of the passengers had been accounted for.
A report says that she was the
mother of two girls and had two
sons on board also. She was seen
on deck with her daughters when
thc boatB were being launched,
and is thought to have either
jumped or fallen overboard in thc
momentary panic that occurred.
This news was brought in by one
of the crew of thc Prince George
which stood by the wreck for an
hour until the American boat
City of Seattle arrived, and the
Admiral Sampson.
Captain Saunders' Story
Shortly after thc beaching of
thc Spokane thc Prince George
entered the Narrows and was
warned by wireless lhat a wreck
had happened. Captain Saunders
stood by thc wreck for an hour,
and thc cpatain and officers of
thc Spokane boarded the.George
after their passengers had been
safely taken ashore.    Thc wreck
was caused by Uie strong tide
making the vessel sheer suddenly
in the Narrows. Captain Saunders
was not able to say whether the
Spokane can be salved or not.
Her skipper had not been able
to estimate the extent of the
damage done. F.fforis were being
made to find the missing pas
sengers then. There was not the
slightest need for them to have
jumped. A report announcing th.
wreck, and stating that two passengers were missing reached Rupert by wireless on Friday evening.
Is Badly Damaged
According to Mr. Duncan McRae of McRae Bros., who was a
passenger on the Prince George,
the Spokane appeared to have
had her back broken on the rocks,
as her decks were all wavy, and
her stern instead of preserving
thc contour of the vessel's lines,
was hanging down into the water.

LANDAND WATER SPORTS
Dominion Day Contests Were Keenly Enjoyed---Rover Won Contest for Power Boats and Longshoremen the Six Oared Race
---A. Nicholson Made Magnificent Run in Ten Mile Road
Race After Having Carried off the Three Mile-
List of Prize Winners
In spite of rather uncertain
weather conditions the celebration
of Dominion Day in Prince Rupert
was quite a success. Great deeds
were done by the city's favorite
athletes. The citizens proved
themselves keen followers of sport
They stayed with the long program of events to the splendid
finish of the ten mile by Nicholson
which was in itself "worth all the
money." Nicholson, the hero of
the day, finished his ten miles in
fine shape after maintaining an
even pace all through. His time
(unofficial) was just under sixty
minutes. Watson, the fire department favorite, came in an
excellent second. Both Nicholson
ind Watson were carried shoulder
high by the enthusiastic crowd
at the tape line, and the ovation
thc successful runners received
as they finished was worth hearing.
Sherman's Clean Up
With three firsts, a second, and
i team runner's prize to lift Sherman was, with Nicholson, tremendously popular. Nicholson
had two firsts and one second to
carry off, and the ovation accorded
to him was immense. Another
popular winner was Picket ts whose
two   firsts   and   a   KCOjtf\   prize
were borne off the stage by him
amid cheers, and "What's the
matter with Claxton?"
Rupert's Pastor Athlete
First prize winner in the Business Men's race, record holder in
his college days, and strenuously
energetic Starter throughout the
whole of the Land Sports, Rev. W.
H. Mcl.eotl in reading the roll of
honor on the Empress stage on
the evening of Dominion Day paid
very high tribute to the athletic
achievements of Prince Rupert's
citizens. He was enthusiastic regarding the stamina and speed
displayed by the men who finished
the ten mile, and declared that
these men would compare well
with the athletes of world reputation, when- you consider the
extremely trying nature of the
ten mile track. This, though
the best available, was over the
plank streets, far from level, and
heavy owing to the niositure that
gathered on it.
Cinder Track Soon
But lhe Rev. Mr. Mcl.cod
mentioned that a very live movement is on foot to obtain through
the city council a proper S|>orts
Park. A likely site is luiown of,
and has even  lieen measured off
roughly   by   enthusiasts  amongst
whom without mentioning names,
are certain  live ones of our city-
fat hers.     There   is   room   for   a
quarter mile track, which may be
a  cinder   track,  also  a   Itascball
diamond, a tennis courts, and perhaps   a   football   field.     "Don't
let the defects of today's course
discourage  you,"  siid   Rev.   Mr.
Mcl.cod  to the athletes and audience.    "Have just  a  little  patience,   and   very   soon   we   shall
have ground worthy of your energy and enthusiasm for sport."
Popular Events
The Ten Mile was the event of
the day of course, but keen ex-
cittniriil was aroused in the three
mile, the S80 yards, quarter mile,
and hundred yards.   The Walking
race was a capital event from the
spectacular point of view.   Some
of the contestants showed finished
style, but some of the most finished
stylists came to a premature finish
themselves.   Jack Beattie lost his
laurels in the Fat Man's race, but
then his opponent George Wall
who   came   in   first,   was   really
quite a wafer compared with the
genial   champion  of  the  Victoria
Day race.   The mile ran- in which

WAY SHE ANSWERED   YES"
Wrote Story of Her Love on
His Shirt Front. Now They
Have the Linen to Wash.
Edward V. Gambler, bank cashier, who is being sued for separation
by his wife of a year, told blush-
ingly how the former Edith Russell
accepted him when he proposed
to her in her Atlanta home by-
writing a love letter on his shirt
front as she sat on his knee. He
could not crook his neck to read
the effusion and she read the letter
which began: "I love you," to
him.
Gambier said that on leaving
the church after the marriage
she became excited and told him
to go away. Their honeymoon
was unpleasant. On one occasion
he testified: "She demonstrated
thc wish to withdraw from my
arms. I asked her what the
matter was and she replied, 'I
feel like hades.' "
Earlier in the day Mrs. Gim-
bier had testified that her husband
treated her "like a piece of stone,"
seldom embraced or kissed her
and wrote her that as she had
entered the marriage relation without any idea of its solemnity he
considered that no marriage had
taken place.

Mary Hccht, 15 years old, who
had been practically dumb for
two years, strangely recovered her
power of speech at the bedside of
her dying sister. She is the
daughter of a farmer who lives
at St. Thomas station, lietween
Wcllston and St. Charles, and
was devoted to her sister, who had
been ill of scarlet fever for three
weeks.
Since Mary lost her voice in a
spell of coughing she could pronounce a few words in a whisper.
By giving close attention other
members of the family could tell
what she was saying. The little
sister understood her best of all
and Mary' w��s in almost constant
attendance at the stricken child's
bedside.
She was there when lhe disease
reached its crisis last night. Bending over the child's pillow, she
whispered to her with all the
strength that was left in her
voice. It was apparent to the
family Ui.it lhe little girl was
dying. Shortly liefore midnight
the child attempted to sit up in
bed. She said "Good-bye Mary."
To thc surprise of all Mary replied in full tones "Good-bye,
sister." The little girl died a few
minutes later and Mary's voice
has been ns strong as it ever was.
Physicians believe th.it the nervous shock of witnessing her sister's
death did what the skill of surgeons could not do and restored
to Mary her power of speech.

Canada is the country of the

Even though deficient in ability,

the capacity for seeing and seizing
opportunities. This she ascribes
to wrong methods of education.
The world asks for accurate know-
edge, practical ability, and skilled
abor, and the English gentlewoman, cast upon her own resources, has nothing to offer but
those intangible assets called "accomplishments."
"Our girls in British Columbia,"
she said, "arc taught identically
what our boys are taught; the
career open to the boy is open to
the girl with no sex limitations.

THE LAND POLICY OF NEW ZEALAND
In an interesting interview with the editor ol the Toronto Globe,
the Hon. Dr. Finlay, Minister of Justice of the Government of New-
Zealand, who with the Prime Minister, Sir Jos. Ward, was then on his
way to the Conference of the Colonial Premiers in London, gave
some interesting information regarding the solving of the vexed land
question in New Zealand.
With only a limited area, and with private estates of 200.000
acres devoted to sheep raising und supporting only a few shepherd-,
the situation grew up akin to that in Britain.
The Government "reclaimed" much of the land, leased it to
small farmers, loaned capital upon it, provided needed facilities, ind
conveniences, and in the end disproved every argument of the obstructionist by showing wide spread prosperity and trebled land values,
One-sixth of all New Zealand is now held by the Crown and will not
be sold, but only leased in small holdings at reasonable rentals and
revalued after sixty-six years.
Absolutely and in every particular our land policy has been justified, su'd Ur. Finlay, and he did not refuse the retrain of the cani|��igii
song of tin British radicals, "God made ihe land for the people."
The polic) of the Government of New Zealand, as Dr. Finlay
describes it, is very different from that of British Columbia. "The
policy of our Government," says Dr. Finlay, "is not to delay Legislation until unrest here, or clamor there, or the pressure of half instructed public opinion yonder, crowds us into action. Our plan i*
to lead. There came a time when it was plain lhat New Zealand
was face to face with a crisis. Things could not go on as they had bet n
going, without revolt and re-action. The ideal was received of what
kind of place New Zealand ought to Ire and it has been the aim of our
policy lo work steadily and determinedly towards that ideal. . . We
have sixty million acres and one million people, and our purpoi-e is
to make each of those acres yield the Utmost good for lhe people, and
to secure to each of those people access to all the opportunities which
life in New Zealand affords."
Access io opportunity, as Dr. Finlay understood it, meant access
lo the land us source of wealth, access to education free and efficient
as essential to the right use of opportunity; access to wholesome
conditions of labor and just reward; access to justice, SUCh as gives
the poorest seamstress as fair a chance before the court as tin- wealthiest
corporation; access to capital at moderate rate- of interest and easy
terms of payment; access to all the conveniences provided by railways, telegraphs, telephones, and other public services at the minimum
cost to the slate, and access to insurance against accidents and .1
pension for old age.
