CIVIC ELECTIONS.
For the past week or so there
bas been considerable* talk aboui
the approaching civic elections,
thu consensus ol opinion being
that the mayor and aldermen
should be elected by accumulation.
'I his we hold would be the best
course lor the ratepayers to pursue,
seeing that tlie present board have
only sat lur the hull year. The
members of the council have
worked hard ami faithfully to
transact the business of the city in
lhe best interests ol the rate
payers. Tbe further fact that
there is a lot of unfinished matters,
such as by-laws, etc., that cannot
possibly be completed before the
elections, should also be a reason
to return the present city lathers
to power for the year lyoB.

ratepayers and explained to their

be.

FERRY PURCHASE.
The North Vancouver board ol
Trade, in meeting assembled, in
the city hall on Monday night,
without a dissenting voice, passed
a resolution favoring tbc purchasing hy the city (or f 175,000,
thc business of the lerry company,
ai well as tbe Lonsdale gardens.
We do not know whether these
properties are worth that amount
ol money or not. Tbe only information to band is that from the
speakers who were at the meeting,
ami street gossip. Therefore, we
think that in the best interest* a,I
the city, it would not be amiss to
have a valuation made by competent valuators.

Two stories of hunters lost in the

away,
(Hy Clarence Rook,)
Some women "wear, as you may
have noticed ; and  I  bave heard
women  disguised  in  liquor  and
Untidy bodices saying things on a
Saturday night to a religious policeman that 1 wouldn't say to a dog
il 1 thought be could understand
them,    1 am writing of nice women
—the women whoare your mothers
wives,   sisters.    And   you   must
have noticed that they seldom or
never swear after the manner ol
men.   The other day two people
got into a hansom cab, one ol them
cracked his head against the roof,
and—well, 1 admit he swore ; the
other found her feathers brushed
the wrong way ; she did nol swear,
she   passetl   her   hand   over   tie
damage ami said,   " What   joll)
weather for tbe autumn 1 "
It is a question ol training. In
the matter ol dress we men ban
made nur muscles soli aud mu
language hard, I In the "lh'I
hand, women have kept in training
all the time. The explanation nl
this hardihood of women dashed
across me when I looked over lhe
ladies' papers which set forth the
glories ol the autumn fashions
Ami tbe pictures convinced me
that women will still have to
endure the misery of being wilhoul
a pocket.
Now, if I bad not pockets 1
should tlie swearing 1 Lookill iutog
my own soul—or, rather, my own
clothes —there are twelve invisible
pockets in which can be stowed
watch, keys, letters, pencils, eyeglasses, handherchiefs, gloves,
cigars, cigarettes, a pipe, tobacco,
season ticket—good gracious, the
list seems endless—and if tin
matches and the penknife art:
omitted—then 1 swear. For all
these things are necessary to a
man. And when tbe cold weather
comes my overcoat, devised with
much thought, contains pockets
that will double the capacity of
tbe summer clothes.
Yet tbe autumn fashions deny
the possibility of a pocket lo the
greater half of our English humanity. 1 hav** seen a woman
plunging at some obscure corner
nf lur skirt in order to find her
cab fare ; but she didn't swear as
I should have done. She had heen
brought up properly to renounce
all the conveniences of life when
away from home. She has always
had to face tbe problem ol fighting the battles of life in tbe open
without a proper commissariat
service, and with the handicap of
skirts.
Lira's I.II ll.l. WORRIES
Take the woman's day -the day
o( the average woman of middle
class, who goes shopping. Con-
siucr her from the hair ol her head
in lhe heel ol her shoe, ami you
win imd discomfort everywhere.
. r hair her 1 rown ol glory - is
a crown of thorns, No man who
isn't a musician worries about liis
hair. My head is cropped once a
fortnight, and there's an end nf it.
But the woman must begin with
irushlngs and hairpins and the
i.iilul contention with tho elements. With the first gust of
wiiul that dislocated a hairpin I
should swear,
My bat is removable. The
woman's bat is not. ln lhe (minibus slie must sit straight up, for if
iln hair is sale thc hai is in danger,
nul the Spartan training is at
work. She simps. But ber
itirso, her handkerchief- if I lose
mv handkerchief 1 swear abomin*
iMy her powder pull, her visiting
'arils, her pencil, her cigarette,
case, if she wants one all are in a
reticule that she slings over her
wrisl. And she ought lo know
lhat the chances are that she will
leave ber reticule on  the floor of
the first shop she enters.
THE SKIRTS OF MISCHANCE
Then she wears skirts. Skirts
alone would drive an ordinary
man to blasphemy, A man is
furious enough on a rainy day
when his two trousered legs and
an umbrella contend against the
elements. But think of the
woman who has to pick up a skirt
in one hand, hold up an umbrella
with another, carry her commissariat with a third, convey a couple
nl libraty books with a fourth, signal to an omnibus with a fifth, and
devote the rest of her energies to
keeping her hair on. She does it
1 very day. She does il—1 am not
going into the more intimate details—on a pair of boots thai
would send an average man red
ing,
The boot-sellers are wiSe in
separating the sexes in llie matter
ol boots Look iu their windows,
There is uol a man in the country
who could go about his business
ami do it properly in the boots
that women wear habitually. The
man's window is tilled with boots
that announce comfort, The
other appeal is elegance, which
means that the woman descendii:
rom the lop of an omnibus, if she
lues not lose lii'i iiiiiIiii Ila, or her
reticule, or her library books, or
catch her skirt in the process will
probably trip over the heel in the
middle ol her loot. And she does
not swear.
LIVING WITHOUT POCKETS
For my own part, I could not
spend a day in a woman's dress
and doing a woman's work without
saying things that would ensure
arrest by the religious policeman,
think the skirt on horseback,
on bicycle, on a rainy day would
mark the breaking poinl.
But the woman doesn't care.
She is insured to discomfort. She
belongs to the sex that does not
swear, because her whole lile is
pent in contending with worries
Irom head to heel, and she seldom
knows what relief from them means
unless she is in a titrkisb hath.
The whole thing lias been carefully
evised by man, my dear woman.
He has invented your fashions, depicted theni, printed them, imposed them upon you, and you
have graciously accepted the burden laid on your shoulders.
What we want—said men—is
women who will keep their temper.
Therefore, we will bring them up
ia thc habit ol discomfort. We
will give them hats and hair and
faces and blouses and skirts and
high-heeled shoes that require pins
and powder and care and caution,
and we will not give them a pocket,
So women went forth into the
world to learn discomfort, but not
to learn the infernal foresight of
the men who put it upon them.
And the summing up ol the
matter is lliis: That tbe woman
who does not swear is the woman
who has been so accustomed to
daily and hourly discomfort that
she does not notice it. There are,
one knows, other women who have
begun to swear revolt against the
settled order ol things, which
enacts that a man must rule the
bouse and the nation ami the
world. What will happen when
the time comes (or the daughters
to escape the careful training in
discomfort 1 cannot say.
A woman fettered and educated
in temper by her ordinary dress ia
a wonder ol delight and a marvel
ol sell contentment, But a woman
in cropped hair and trousers-I'm
alraid she would drop her self-control and sweat like a man.
" Did your dear husband die intestate ?" "No," sobbed the
grieving widow, "it was liver
trouble."
" Variety," quoted the man with
the bungling brow, "is the spice
of lile." " Yes,'' responded the
man with the bullions nose; " but
that isn't the name of it now. It's
vaudeville,"

=THE:
BANK OF VANCOUVER
(To be Incorporated by Act ol Parliament of Canada.)
CHARTER APPLIED FOR
CAPITAL, 2,000,000.00
This proposed Hank is king organized and will have its head
office in Vancouver, with its Directors chosen by the subscribers to its
stock at* the organization meeting,
GENERAL
The Western Provinces, and British Columbia
in Particular, have for some considerable time felt the urgent
need of an institution such as the proposed Bank of Vancouver.
The formation of new industries, and tho development of those already
established, hns been very seriously retarded for want of ordinary financial accommodation, and the primary object of this new Hank will be
to alleviate the situation by largely confining its operations to the
splendid field awaiting it in the Pacific Coast provinces and more
especially in British Columbia.
The Bank proposes to do business on the Safe and well laid
down lines of the old established Banks, and will cam their respect
and good will by a continuation of this policy.
The Hank of Montreal has its Head Office in Montreal.
The Bank of Toronto has its Head Ollice in Toronto.
The Bank of Ottawa has its Head Office in Ottawa.
The Bank of Hamilton has its Head Ollice in Hamilton.
The standing of these Hanks is beyond tjuestion.
