Since aviation evolutions commenced in L9Q8 there have been
J33 lives lost in attempts to fly.,
One is filled with horror at the
thought of one loosing his life, 1ml
little if any sympathy can be offered. Man's place is not in the air.
If it was he would have been provided with wings.
The Vancouver board of trade
and the citizens generally are
very much disgusted with the
manner in which horseracing at
Minoru Park and the fighting at
Brighouse arena are being conducted, and are preparing an appeal to
the Federal and Provincial governments to have them curtailed, if
not eliminated.
Ex-President Taft has been
spending the .summer at Murray
Bay, Quebec, Tlie ocean breezes
have blown away from him all the
haze of error in which his term of
office left him, He now sees without the aid of "interested" advisors, and being freed of the offiicia!
gajr, he has spoken that which he
sees. In an interview on Wednesday lie is reported as paying that
lie believes political union between
Canada and tlie United States is
something we will never see. He
should have spent a week at Murray Bay before making his cele-
b'ated manifesto ou the Reciprcci y
Bill, or, better still, before he committed his partv to the deal: the
wreck of two governments might
thus have been averted.
Mr. Wilson of the telephone Co.
takes exception to our remarks
about the manner in which the
poles are being placed in the orchard. He says that the poles were
placed with the approval of Mr.
Wilmshurst, and that they were to
be six feet from the line. We are
glad to learn that some oue exercises some control over our streets,
but at the same time we do not
think the road superintendent's intention was that the Telephone Co.
should block the existing roadway
without providing another, as is
bang done. Furthermore, if the
surveyor's stakes are in their proper
places sonic of the poles are uot six
Let from the line. Despite all Mr
Wilson's arguments to the contrary
wc still maintain that the poles are
not an ornament to the landscape
or anything else.

The funeral of the late Alvin
Piercy took place on Sunday afternoon to the Sandwick Presbyterian
Church burying ground. A large

Meuzies conducted the services.
The family have the sinccrest
sympathy of the whole countryside
iu their affliction, The pallbearers
were Angus Beaton, Gtis Cowie,
\V. McKelvie, Lucius Harmston,
Alfred Carwithen and Jack Car-
withen. Among those from a distance were Mrs. Piercy and two
sous from Denman Island.
Mr. Chas. Shannon and two
children are spending a few months
at Toronto and other Ontario cities.
