About First of Year, *
A special wife from Ottawa lo the Express conveys the satisfactory assurance that the dredge
Mastodon will he tlt«j lor the work for which the wat constructed, namely dredging the Fint Narrows, and for that work only until it it completed. Hon. F. D. Monk, Minister of Public Works, has
issued explicit orders to that effect.
It it learned that several attempts have been made from different quarter! to secure the use of the
Ma'Modon by private parlies, but these were not favored by Mr. H. II. Stevens, MP., member for
thit riding, and the order was accordingly issued as above. It it expected by the Department that
the minor repairs, at present in progress at the Wallace Shipyards, will be completed by the end of
this month and as the dredge will proceed at once to ils berth at the Parlhia Shoal, it is practically
certain that operations will be under way early in January. The Express is further advised that Mr.
Stevens it endeavoring to induce the Department to issue instructions lhat a double shift be used ;i
order to hasten this important work as much as possible.

grtutid permission to open tbe lanes
through that property. It was resolved to allow the street and lanes to be
opened pn condition that tho recom-
iiii'iidiiiimi for tbe city be it tbe rtto

violated the judgment uf Mr. .lustieo

Mr. Hancs explained Iimt the court's
ruling provided tint ull back fills wore

iln.-s decision tho contractor* hid per
listed in doing tbo opposite und uutil
tbe work wis done properly Mr. Hane*
rel'meil to give hii certificate fur the
Bull ptymeuls.
Aid. Kittion objected to Uking tbe
matter out of the city engineer's hand*
tnd puttiug Ihe responsibility ou the
shoulder* of tbo council. Mr. limes
wu there to look after thoir inter
eats.

THB   PROBLEMS   OF   B.   0.   AND
THBIB SOLUTION
The Victoria Daily Colonist makes
a very apt comment upon one feature
of present day tendencies when it de
dares editorially "Thero is a disposition abroad in certain quarters just
now, to givo prominonco to overy half-
baked' opinion to which some transient visitor to this province seos tit
to givo utterance."
British Columbia is attracting tbe
attention of ami is being favored from
limo lo time by-a personal visit from
many men of prominence and ot wide
Influence from the older portions of
tlie world, and this practice, which is
now well established, will doubtless be
adopted in the near future by very
many other personages nf like emi
nonce who have not as yet seen tbis
province. The impressions of these
outstanding men from the old country
uml ul*ewhero are always a matter of
interest to those who ure resident
within the province and notin-
frequently thoy are able—because of
their ripo eiporicneo thoir marked
faculty of penetration and their exceptional ability to arrive speedily at
an intelligent grasp of a siluatiou in
a general way—to east a helpful side
light upon local problems or to indiieo
us to view some familiar question from
u now angle, which is at once interesting and inatruetive. British Columbians will not be slow to appreciate
all ilml is valuable under sueh cir-
eumstanres, neither will I lied allow
any false pride to prevent them from
accepting and making tho best use of
all ilml can bu learned from such
sources.
Tho men, however, whoso early impressions resolve themselves rapidly
into opinions uf real merit will be
found reticent iu giving public expression thereto, lest they allow them
selves to be betrayed into some theory
or position, which larger Information
uml more juaturu judgment may constrain 1 lioiu to abandon.
On Ilie other liuinl, there is always
ut Inin,I, a plentiful supply of com-
paralively obscure ami shallow minded individuals who harbor an overweening loudness/or publicity and who
are ready ul the slightest opportunity
lo unburden themselves of a lot of
ilieap verbiage witb regard to any local
mailers which may present themselves
ut Ilie lime. The confident manner iu
which men of this type are able to deliver themaelves of pronounced opin-
ions ut sight wilh reference to question*
which others Hud to besot wilb perplexities, afler years of eloso study
uud serious thought, would be considered remarkable were I hose opinions not
so palpably superficial. The promptness witb which thoy would introduce
innovation* of the ininit radical type,
may gajn tbem a reputation in tbe
minds of a very few who naturally
sympathise wilh tbat sort of thing, as
advanced thinkers, but in tbe estimation of the saner and safer thinking
of the peoplo, they will rank as authors
of "confusion wor»e confounded."'
After the most liberal allowance has
been made for all tbat is of value iu
suggestioua tbat conie from outside
sources, the unassailable fart remains
that British Columbians must themselves fare aud solve tbo problems of
British Columbia. Under normal conditions tbe men who aro fully versed iu
tbe real inwardness of conditions iu
this province, the men who have tbe
most intimate and comprehensive knowledge of our resources aud advantages,
tjke pnp who bave beep ia position to
grow Into these problems aa tbey bave
davaliopeoI oni wbo have given mature
eonsideriition thereto, the men who
have folly entered Into tbe spirit of
tho weet, tin mm who are "saturated" with wtatera sentiment witb
its exalted optimism and Irrepressible
enthusiasm—these are tbe men wbo are
best liiii',I to lead British Columbia by
the safest-path to the most expeditious
minium.-nl of the bibbest ami best
that is rendered possible by the inhcr
out riches which aro found within and
tho attendant opportunities which
await ilu province. In tbo face of
this unavoidable responsibility there
need be no hesitation in asserting that
the citizens of this province aro made
of the stuff whicii is fully capable of
rising to the occasion, of meeting the
issues which are ins4purablu from the
enviable uslvantages and opportunities
which Ihey enjoy and of evolving the
host moans of meeting and overcoming
all those inii. uln, or obstacles which
may present themselves beeauso of in
tcrnal conditions or external relation
ships.
THE McNAMABA TRIAL
The general public will upprovc ami
applaud the statement of Detective
Hums that "As for tho unions, nine
tenths of the laboring men du hot sym
palhi/e with tho anarchistic olomont
who advocate dynamiting, murder ami
tho destruction of property." It is
not necessary in order to protoet the
prestige uf trade unionism ut the pres
unt juncture that lubor leaders should
ask .Iho public to accept the theory—
improbable to tho last degree—that the
M 'Niiiniirn brothers were bought, to
make a bogus confession. While ac
canting thai confession as bona ri.I.-.
and believing that the men wbo mude
it aro guilty of Ibe crime confessed,
tbe powor* of discriminatioi wilh
which overy human being of average in-
Iciligoneo is endowed, will convince
bim at onco tbat not only had organ-
i.s'il labor as such no connection whatever witb those unlawful acts, but
further, that recourse to such deeds
of violence is altogthcr foreign In'Uie
principles of trades unionism ami repug-
uunl to the real spirit which actuates
that great organization. That the
M'Namuraa were the chosen agent* ot
a coterie of kindred spirits, Ihere is
evory reusou to believe, but Ibat this
was but a collection' of individuals
of whose existeueo .and purposes organized labor us such, had no know
ledge wiil bo universally accepted.
The faet that members of trades
unions and sympathizers wilb trades
unionists, contributed freely in money
to defray the expenses of the most
able defence of the accused that coubl
be procured is a manifestation of loyalty to their comrade* when in dilllcul
lies which society at largo must admire. Those contributions were made,
however iu implicit reliance upun Ihe
strong protestations of innocence which
had been made by the accused and by
others upon their behalf. Now that
their guilt is proven, those who assist
ed most willingly in supplying money
for tho defence will doubtless most
.imu-,hi', support Ihe administration
of strict justice.
This *cn«atioual event in the Industrial world again forcibly emphasizes
the fact that despite the most strenuous and sincere efforts, it is practically
impossible for any great orgoni/ation
of human beings to oxurciae a censor
ship over it* membership such as will
prevent individual members from 'level
oping thoories which are out of bar
ninny witb the principles of the organ!
/ation or from occasionally pcrpelral
ing deeds whose tendency is lo bring
tbe organization under reproach. Tbe
maxim "A fellow feeling makes u»
wondrous kind" ought to work out in
a collective aa well as an individual
sense, and it is witbin tho range of
possibilities tbat oue of the effects of
tbis regrettable occurrence may be tbe
establishing of uew sympathies between organized labor and othor groat
organizations which have experienced
similar difficulty with erring member*.

asking at a booh sts|l for th* Pfqw
bar or the Mlisl|ig Link, or thp ,jpf
Heel, or tho Buss Saw, or tho Arkansas   Thulium   Oft.     These are actually
tbo titles of newspapers in the Sfofoi-
Yet ovqn these are hardly tbp worst,
for among tbo list of papers In Ala-
liiilna hro thq Hot Want, Spot Cash,
and Wire dress Sittings. The people
of California are mure or less proud
of the i'u Tmpii', the Buzz apd the

contains tbo Jjmplicuto anil tbe ilus

Living ip a tous, as wo understand
it, is groat If you don't havq to.

Have You Figured the Low
From "Busy" Signals?
Suppose a customer is about lo order something or
other over your telephone. The operator Ms your
line or lines engaged. The customer must wait—or
order somewhere else. Maybe he chooses to wait—
calls again—again finds your line or lines busy.
That means a possible loss of a {customer.
The business man needs adequate telephone service for the accommodation of his '
business and his customers. When you low
customers through "busy" signals, it haa
been proved that your telephone facilities
are inadequate.
People who get businew make it easy for ihei; customers to get them and have the number of telephone
lines iheir business requires. The number should be
determined by die amount of use at the BUSfjEST
time of the day.
