Work on North Arm Harbor
H. H. Stevens, M.P., States That  the  North  Arm Harbor
Commission Will be Independent of the Vancouver
Harbor Commission
Speaking t'i a representative of the
"Chinook, Mr. II. II. Stevens, M.P.,
stated that the expenditure of $5,000,-
iiiiii referred to by him in an interview with a Vancouver contemporary
would I"- f'er ilie t'ny of Vancouver
Harbor alone.
"Semlli Vancouver, Poinl Grey,
Richmond ami Burnaby," said Mr.
Stevens, "will be given a first-class
harheer by the Betting aside e.i' $2lKI,-
iioil for preliminary work in connection with dredging ihe North Ann
of tin- Fraser Kiver and the building
��� ���f a jetty at ils meeiilh. Thi- work
will be commenced at once, the money
being already appropriated for the
"With regard t'e the- harbor commission," said Mr. Stevens, "authorized fen this part 'ef the Fraser, it
wouhl be absolutely independent of

ami would be vested with much tin
same powers.
"The- two government membi

|said Mr. Stevens, "would he- announc
eel probably within a lew elay*. Mr.
J. D. Taihir. M.I'., having iln- matter
in hand. In any case there will be ""
delay in pushing forward tin- work
.-mil Se mt li Vancouver may look forward to an era eef prosperity."
It is useless t" shut our eyes to
facts and conditions as we find them.
The outlook commercially is at present far from bright. Money seems to
have taken wings and departed, and
the most peculiar aspect of the situation is, that though you search the
columns of the press earnestly to
tind a record of where this money
bird has migrated tei, there is no
news; no one appears to know. Il
has gone, that is all.
For the present this means that
times are hard, or employment more
often casual than permanent. Who,
as a class, are likely to feel the stress
most; unskilled or skilled artisan?
The skilled mani^ran far more readily
accommodate himself to laboring
work than thc laborer can lill the
place of the skilled man. Therefore,
we are safe in concluding that the
.skilled artisan in our present state of
society, has a great advantage over
the man who has no trade in his
We consider that the rule of the
"survival of the fittest" is a hard, unrelenting maxim born e.f an ultra
commercialism and gross materialism.
We think the rule stands as a menace to the higher development of
mankind, stifles the liner instincts
that separates us from the brute ami
saps any aspirations of the mind of
the world towards that time as, Robbie Burns aptly puts it. "When maii
tn man the world o'er shall brothers
be an' a' that." Vet the rule of the
"survival of the fittest" i.s a truism,
and has many good arguments in its
favor. Thinking men say: "Well. I
must he counted among the lit. ami
particularly must I take care that my
children are alsee fitted, and in fact
more fitted than myself." Now the
thinking man. the man wlm reflects
is responsible pro rata fm- whatever
progress we are making. For him I"
try te. alter the state eel society see as
lee bring immediate benefit lo his
children is equivalent tei beating the
air, as compared with using his efforts towards training thein t" compete successfully, mentally and physically  with their  fellows.
The only reaseenable course for him,
then, and all either men is tee occupy
their  energy  and  ability  ill  assisting
to the Utmost eif their power in levelling up the avenues of education.
Can the parents in these day- I"
absolutely responsible fur the educating of their offspring!' No; ihe community must assist and the state must
assist. 1 use the word "assist" advisedly, since the work of the state
and community does not eliminate the
work of the parents; the one is a
complement of the other and the best
results are only obtained when all
parlies  dee  their  share.
What are the governing bodies,
but instruments for interpreting and
realising the public mind. What the
people desire is obtained by placing
men at the head of affairs tn regulate
the machinery for giving effect to
their   aspirations.
Here is where thc thinking men
can nieire effectively influence the
times in which he lives to particularly benefit his children, and more
successfully equip them to be considered  among  the  "fit."
The old apprenticeship system in
Uriiish Columbia has almost drifted
into disuse. What are we tei do in
the future for our tradesman? How
can wc obtain our carpenters, bricklayers, plumbers, etc? Immigration?
Yes, possibly. But what are our
children going tei do in common
terms; must they take "pot luck?"
Assuredly not.
We must, as citizens of a country
with the very best of future pe.ssi-
bilities, lend our influence to develop! the technical education of our
children and thereby counteract the
serious effect of the falling into dis-
use of the apprenticeship system.
I am pleased to note that the commission appointed by Ottawa has
brought in its report and recommends
lhe spending of a vast sum of money
in technical instruction. This money,
well invested, will earn untold interest to the Dominion.
The people must look well I" il
that whoever is entrusted with the
distribution of these special funds, iu
the event of the money being eventually granted, are men who know
iheir business ami are able to carry
..ut the highest ideals of the people.

Protest Against Water Tax
Petition Being Numerously Signed Throughout  the Municipality
as a Protest Against a Tax on the Water Sprinkling
of  Gardens
Around the Municipal Hall
Two masked car bandits Wednesday evening held up and robbed the
passengers and crew of a N'ew Westminster B. C. Klcctric car on the
Eburne line, at McCrae Road, afterwards disappearing into the brush
with fifty dollars in cash belonging
t" iheir victims and numerous watches and other valuables. The holdup occurred about 9.30 o'clock and
besides the conductor and motorman
there were thirteen passengers. The
hold-up occurred In the vicinity and
nt about the same hour as a similar
robbery on Wednesday night of last
week���just a week ago to the night.
The hold-up took place soon after
the car, tr-evelling from Eburne, had
left McCrae Road station (four stations past Ebume). where the two
robbers, as ordinary passengers, waited for the car, which pulled up to
take them aboard A few minutes
afterwards the conductor, on his way
freim the front to ascertain the reason for the delay, as he thought, on
the part of the passengers to get
aboard, was met in thc middle of the
rear portion of the car by one of the
bandits, held up at the point of his
revolver, and told to line up with the
affrighted passengers, whom the
other robber was then covering with
another gun.
Losing not a second, the robber
then left the conductor with the passengers and immediately afterwards
the motorman heard the ring of the
emergency bell, signifying "Stop at
once." As he did so the front vestibule door was thrown open, and he
was faced by the bandit, who, holding
a revolver in his face, told him to join
the passenger crowd. The bandits
after holding up thc passengers disappeared in the close bush alongside.
The police of Vancouver city, of
South Vancouver and Point Grey,
were notified, but up to Thursday, no
trace of the bandits has been discovered.
South Vancouver Liberal Association
A meeting of the South Vancouver
Liberal Association will be held in
the office of the South Vancouver
Builders' Supply Company, 29th
Avenue and Main Street, on Monday
evening, June 16. when business of
importance   will   be   considered.
Mr. G. McGeer. of Messrs. Harris,
Bull, Hannington and Mason, Vancouver, who was a delegate to the
Kamloops convention, will address
thc meeting, in the course of which
he will tender a reporl eef the general
proceedings of the convention. Mr.
McGeer is well and favorably known
as a capable speaker, and an interesting address may be Confidently expected.
Among other business, Mr. Harry
Kay, secretary of the association,
will  give  his annual  report.
While a number of parties were discussing municipal matters the other
day one of the party passed the remark that nowhere in Semth Vancouver or its neighborhood will yeiu find
any man working for future generations the same as they do in old
countries. A healed discussion immediately followed as to whether certain parties were working ill the interests of the future or the present.
The present and the future arc so
closely linked and Interwoven that
it seems to be hardly possible to separate them. When a water scheme is
taken up, we are not only providing
for the present needs, but also feer
the future. Say that water is required for 100 persons, and provision is
made accordingly; when such hundred persons leave the district, or in
the natural course of events throw
..if the mortal coil, the supply of
water still goes on, so that the past'
generation has provided for the supply of 1IKI persons of the present gen-1
eration. Someone will say why not
have made provision for 11KM) at first,
instead of the hundred; it could have
been done then for half the cost. We
will grant this thai it could have been
ele.iic al half the cost, or even go further and say quarter of the cost; but
is this a justification for a man today paying taxes that are unnecessary. So thai a future generation |
may he relieved of iheir just contribution tee their maintenance? Others
maintain thai we are so much in-1
elehte-el iee past generations thai it isi
incumbent on lis to take up as much
eef the burden as we can bear for the
welfare of future generations. It is
a question thai offers a great many
debateable points from the different
pe.ints of view. My own opinion is
that it is up to every "lie- nol onlj
in work for the future, but that we
should so guide that work that while
so doing it we should met assess ourselves with i"" greal a burden to
lighten the labors ol future generations.
\i lasl the Royal Assent has been
given to the Xe.rth Ann Eraser Harbor Bill. It is now an incorporated
Acl of Parliament on the Statutes!
of Hritish Columbia, the first link in
the chain ol the great work of a
fresh-water harheer. Few realize what
the commencement of this great work
means to the interested municipalities. Today e.n looking over the
signatures t" the firsl petition to Ottawa 1 notice thai all have dropped
"in of the light with the exception of
R C Hodgson and Stewart Campbell.
Throughout the long, weary light
ihey never lost faith in ultimate victory.    .1.   Armstrong.   Vogel,   Harri
son and Lamond played their part in
assisting in the great work. Thc reward for all their labor will be in
seeing the great geiod they have done
for the ratepayers of South Vancouver.
A banquet will be given the mem-
ucrs of parliament in recognition of
their labors in piloting the bill
through the House of Commons. The
number of guests will be limited, >"
their will be an exceptional demand
for tickets. Members e.f the various
boards of trade will in all probability
take priority to all others, and no
tickets will be issued till their demands are satisfied.
Many and strange are the requests
received at the police office. Today.
Chief Jackson may receive inquiries
for an erring husband whose wife is
patiently awaiting information abemt
him in the Old Country; e>r it may
be frenn a mother whose careless son
has omitted to write. Not infrequently a letter i- received from se.me old
couple enquiring about a married
daughter who ha- cease.1 writing to
her home. Other U-iier- refer i" re-

It is intended t.. call a public meeting in the course of a few days when
a deputation will be formed to wait
upon the council. In the meantime
Mr, C. Rayner has addressed the following letter to the '���Chinook" :
To the  Editor :
Sir.��� I received a notice this morning from the municipality of Seiuth
Vancouver Waterworks department
to Ihe effect that unless I paid a certain tax for water for sprinkling my
lawn "I am liable to have my water
shut eiff without further notice." To
say that I feel indignant would hardly express my feelings at this time.
In all fairness, may I ask, is this the
way to encourage your citizens tei
have beautiful gardens? We all know
that gardens cannot exist without
water, and to discourage llvese that
are willing to give both the time and
money that a garden requires, is a
grave injustice. Surely a beautiful
garden  is an acquisition tn the city
vhirh  is  equally  shared by all.     The

Why should the water rale nor
work out similarly? I do not ask that
an excess be placed upon the man
with no garden, out I do think that
he should pay just as much as the
man who is making an effort to
beautify his place and thus enhance
the value eef it and the surrounding
property. Surely our officials would
rather see a goeed garden and lawn
than a hunch nf weeds; if such is the
case let them get busy and so amend
the bylaws to encourage, rather than
intimidate and discourage tlie hmise-
heihlers by issuing such official
notices  as   I   recently   received.

This is certainly to be deplored.
For every dollar collected there is far
too much spent in collecting. But this
waste becomes trivial when contrast-
eel with ihe waste of the dollars that
are neit collected. The consumer pays
the duty, a part 'ef which is wasted in
collecting, lb- also pays the jobber's
profit, ii"i ..nly on ilu- piice, but on
tbe duty, lie pays, too, the wholesale profit on tbe duty as well as on
tbe price. Tbe retailer, too, must
charge bis profit 'en the duty. That is
why a duly eif quarter the price often
increases tile ceest to the consumer
by one-third or one-half. We have
examples in the current cost of living.

send men on to the directorate. Those
who opposed the idea, were of the
opinion that the club only wanted
to have representation from the council in order to be able to say that
the general policy of the Progress
Club had the sanction and approval
of the council. Those who took the
opposite view held that whilst many
eif the activities of the club might not
meet with the endorsation of the
council, yet it would be a good thing
lo have members of organized labor

of the workers when the various plans
eef the club were under discussion.
Finally, after a spirited debate which

wa- very fortunate ior South Vancouver inasmuch a- S.mth Vancouver's interesi would have been, uueb-r
those terms, sul servient i" iln- interests "i Vancouver; and inasmuch as
Seeuth Vancouver is actually trowing faster than Vancouver, particular
care should be taken thai South Vancouver's future aspirations ami ambitions should mit be jeopardized by
any agreement which could not be
broken again whenever South Vancouver  WOUld  like'.
Seeuth Vancouver i- now at a critical stage eif iis development. As |
--ml before, ii i- growing faster than
Vancouver. The governmenl at t>t-
tawa has granted a harbor commission over the North Fraser Harbor,
ami appropriated money to commence
ihe construction of such a harbor.
Whai Semth Vancouver needs i- parliamentary representation, both al
Victoria ami at Ottawa, li seems to
me that South Vancouver is entitled
lee at least three representatives in
the former cily. ami eme. possibly
twee, representatives in the Dominion parliament. However, unfortunately, we an- being altogether overlooked. Our increase iu population
is credited to Vancouver, our increase
in voting strength credited t" Richmond, and wc are falling between two
stools. 1 cannol for iln- life of me
see a way out of this unless we are
incorporated as- a city until such a
time as a plan can be- devised ber the
formation  of a   Greater    Vancouver
ged em the guested properties all
over. Thi- may eir may met be based
em ilie densit) -ei population or extent of territory, eer whatever i- found
i" be suitable. On iln- othei hand,
all -iieei- or other affairs pertaining
iei municipal governmenl will be
handled by the aldermen of each city.
W'e will say, f"i example, thai South
Vancouver requires i" put forward
a itreel bylaw; thi- bylaw i- discussed iii iheir council, presided over by
iheir mayor, who is also a member
fi iln- board of control eei Greater
Vancouver, and consequently in touch
with affairs of Greater Sane-..,net
The bylaw passes, and i- after passage
submitted t'e the be.aril of o,mtnil
which is a -ent oi upper house. There
it will be revised precisely in ihe'
-aim- manner as legislative aiTair- are
revised in the upper house when they
ceitne from parliament. After approval by lhe lieearil of control, of
which the mayor eif South Vancouver, ii will be remembered, i- a member, lhe bylaw i- submitted t" all the
people of Greater Vancouver, veiled
upon ami. if carried, is charged a- a
liability against the as-eis e.f South

disirict has the righl t'e make- il- .ewu
assessment, lis ii- own mlllage, and
has power over it- own improvements

THE encouragement of home industries is, without any
doubt, the most vital matter affecting iln- future
prosperity of South Vancouver. There ha.- been, im- some
considerable time, "consequential talk" about money stringency in Vancouver as in other pans of ilu- Ltli.be-. Various causes may be assigned fnr ihis prevailing scarcity of
reaely money. Um there cannot be any doubt, as far as
Greater Vancouver is concerned, thai one outstanding
cause for Ihis lack ed' money, is lhe want nf a steady, industrial payroll.
This matter ���>! the encouragement 'ef industries can-
lint be toei much harped upon, nor kept too closely befure the attention nf people in South Vancouver. Ii ia
only by agitation lhat any public object can be achieved.
At the risk of reiteration, ami all thai the persistent advocacy of any course entails, it is only by such insistent
endeavor thai urgent matters of this kind can bc focussed
in the public eye. Asked by a young enquirer as tee what
constituted the essentials nf good oratory, Demosthenes,
the great Greek orator, replied-. First, action; second.
action; third, action. Paraphrasing this "obiter dictum,"
Gladstone once declared that to achieve any great public
object it was necessary first to agitate, second tn agitate,
and thirdly to agitate.
There is absolutely nothing that South Vancouver
needs more urgently than industries. The waterfront,
limited as it may be in extent, is unequalled throughout
the province for the purposes of manufacturing sites. The
Xorth Arm of the Fraser River is, in that respect, incomparable. Now that the Harbor Commission Bill has received royal assent it may be hoped that a great impetus
will bc given to industrial development in South Vancouver.
In this connection too much praise cannot be given to
any local concern which helps towards the industrial development of the municipality. One of the chief means
towards this end is good roads. There is one local company that has set a notable example of confidence in this
direction, and the Dominion Creosoting Company of
South Vancouver especially deserves recognition. This
company has sufficient confidence in the future of the
municipality as to undertake the paving oi Main street
and Fraser street on the conditions of accepting municipal bonds in payment for the work. As this means an
expenditure ol probably $800,000 the extent of the undertaking may be realized. It is not expected, of course,
that this company is doing the work without some tangible prospect of pecuniary return, but the whole transact i e >n shows that tlu Dominion Creosoting Company has
at least sufficient confidence in South Vancouver to accept the contract under such conditions.

There are ine greater danger- in the Arctic ice lines i.i

stated several facts to the newspapermen and others wlm

"TMIURE is evidently something radically wrong about
* the immigration methods of the present government
of Canada. The other day a number en' Hritish immigrants
were held up in lhe middle eif tin- prairies, being unable
to proceed to Nanaimo, to which place they were engaged
to go as miners. Those people had been induced to
travel .-emu- four ih.eusanel miles wilh the prnspecl
e.f good work ami good pay. and after, perhaps,
spending their last dollar to get to Canada find themselves
stranded without a job, strangers in a strange land.
tt is surely time that theese responsible in government
circles shouhl be broughl t.e book for this and similar
cases of people bremght to Canada under false pretenses.
There is already sufficient unemployment, and even privation, in various parts nf the Dominion, and the swelling
eel the ranks e,f such is nothing less than criminal on the
part   nf  the  Dominion   Governmenl.
It is,, of course, a matter of graft. Those immigration
agents receive money from the Government for every
man, woman and child brought from Europe t.. Canada,
and the-y ih, nol .-are- a "linker's curse" what becomes of
them once they are shipped to these shores. Nor apparently does ihe- Governmenl care. Tn swell the population appears i., be ih,- chief end of government officials'
ambition, anel like Pontius Pilate ihey wash iheir hands
of thc consequences.
""THERE has already been one meeting eel residents in
South Vancouver protesting againsl the Sabbatarian
bylaw passed by lhe Council. As the confectioners' shops
were also in full swing lasl Sun,lay il elm-, nol appear
thai the bylaw is likely tn be much respected. Nor can
these shop owners be altogether blamed for their attitude. The bylaw works a distinct hardship on the small
tradesman of the municipality. He has often a hard
struggle to make ends meet, and he relies on selling refreshments on a Sunday to help him out. What greater
barm, fr.ein a moral point of view, is there in selling
ice cream or soda biscuits than a glass nf milk?
There are seime people who require reminding that the
Sabbath was made fe.r man and nol man for the Sabbath. More than once in biblical story the great teacher
had to call attention to this simple truth. But there are
always a number of people who arc continually itching to
prohibit something or other. They do not appear to care
whether the prohibition is injurious to a certain class of
people or not; in the name of religion they endeavor to
thrust their own peculiar and narrow-minded view down
other people's throats.
It is most desirable, of course, that the Sabbath should
be observed in a quiet and sober spirit, according to all
the best teachings of Christianity. But Christianity drfes
not mean intolerance and a spirit of restriction, but rather
the charity and broad-mindedness which thc Great Teacher put before all things.
ORKMEN residing in the municipality will view
with satisfaction the- pre.pi,sal tn start work im-
mediately upon the paving nf Main and Fraser streets.
Grading, sewering, curbing ami the like are jobs which
require sturdy and willing hands, and il is satisfactory
tn iini.- that unly citizens of South Vancouver will be
given   work  on  these  two  large  contracts.
Then there are supplies and equipment to be purchased
fe.r the work. There is an undertaking "il the part of the
contractors that these supplies will be benight as far as
possible in South Vancouver. And so, Mr. Business Man
will profit.
With ihe completion e>f the road improvements, we will
have in South Vancouver two splendid highways, bulb
wide and broad and level, highways made almost entirely from South Vancouver materials, with South Vancouver capital and South Vancouver labor.
These thoroughfares which will be improvements even
on the good old Roman reeads will be the joy o.f merchants whose places of business front upon them; the delight of the motorists and transfer people and teamsters;
the pride of all the citizens; and will mean very much tee
all hands, even the poor, persecuted, down-trodden real
estate men.
BURNABY ELECTORS last week were even more indifferent to public affairs than those of South Vancouver.

made to serve as line fences to protect   privileges.
The people of Canada have spent
enormous sums on harbors, docks,

the United States have deine the same.
Now an international greiup eif capitalists proposes to buy out all the

Colonel Roosevelt did well to defend himself by an action in court
againsl the old lie about his being a

foolish enough to believe it during
its time of wide circulation under
forced habits as well as lo his own
personal reputation to dissociate himself from that legend of hard drinking in the While House, in Africa and
The heavy drinker does not per-
feirm phenomenal quantities of hard

The girl arranged her hair, produced a handkerchief, ami began searching fur her features in the dust and

a  look  "f anguish.
"Oh, how could you?" she cried.
"When  we needed it so badly."
"Did yotl?" said Carpenter. "I'm

like a godfather.    "Maybe  the  Cough

and.  smiling a  fatuous smile,  hasten-1

"Whal is it?" 1  askeel Carpenter.
"Top speed clutch busted," saiel
Carpenter inelegantly.
The red gravel man touched me on

"I'll   have   to ask  ynu  tee  give  us  a:

is really your  fault,  anil  it's devilish]

A  Practical  Ice-box
The fact that .scores of babies and
children in our cities and towns are
made seriously ill each summer by
drinking milk 'which has stood for
hours m a warm place and is teeming wiili bacteria, has caused the
medical health department of Toronto t" exhibit a cheap yet practical
ice-box. The h.e.x is a home-made af-

Another shape that stands forth
prominently is a cross between the

In colors Xell rose, hunter's green
and telegram, Saxony, king's and Copenhagen blues are among lhe leaders.
Mustard is one of the best liked
novelty shades.
Blacks and whites are fairly successful.
Tulle very Popular
Quantities of tulle are being used
this year. The latest idea is to have
as trimming for the hat a ruche of
tulle of exactly the same shade. One
particularly stunning hat in purple
was a small model, fitting the head
closely. It had a high peaked ruche
of tulle encircling the crown and
Standing erect, very much as the
headdress of the Indian is arranged.
A bow of moire ribbon in a peculiar
blue, a queer old Chinese blue with
a purplish tinge, trimmed the hat in
the back and a cluster of liny pink
rosebuds was balanced on lhe brim
a litlle  lo  eme  side of the front.
The neck ruche, matching this hat,
was a closely fitting affair, very similar to the fur collarettes of the win-

Since the Vancouver and Westminster clubs have- heen hauling for the
Minlei Cup eluring the iia>i two or
three years there has been little to
choose between the two teams. Naturally the matches have been close
wilh the winning club taking the big
end of each contest hy merely slighl
margins History is repealing itself
this summer. Westminster up to the
present time has won ii> two home
games against Vancouver, while c'e.n
Jones' club has brought  home    ihe
bacon in lhe one fixture played al the
Vancouver exhibition grounds. The
record up tee elate does not  indicate
'that the teams will divide lhe schedule
hy   each   club   winning     their     home
garnet.    Rather deees it indicate that
iln- team which first falls down mi a
home fixture will be at a disadvantage in the cup race.
It is hard at times to convince the
public  that because teams like    the
I Vancouver  ami  Westminster    clubs
win their home fixtures that there is
! not some taint of "fixing" aboul the
I matches. Usually tins charge cmnes
from some arm-chair critic who ceui-
fincs his knowledge of the game lo
the sporting pages of the daily papers.
A trip to one of the parks on any
Saturday afternoon would do a great
deal to disillusionize these critics.
The result of games between two such
evenly matched clubs must always he
a matter of question, in which the
advantage of playing before a home
crowd is a very important feature.
The most natural thing in the world
is that the clubs should be successful
in  their  home  fixtures.
While the clubs are battling at top
speed for the championship the public
must not lose sight of the fact thai
not as good lacrosse is played in the
entire world. What the fans see
every week is the very height of Canada's national game. Il is needless In
go into any argument over this statement. What has happened lo tin-
various  clubs  coming  from  the  East

a three team league is the only solu-
lieeii e.f coast lacrosse difficulties.

Twe. "fluke" ge.als hy the Cup
Holders eluring llle first few minutes
of play on Saturday, simply demoralized the Vancouver defense completely and the champions walked away
with the easiest kind of a victory, the
���core lieing 11 to 2. The struggle was
staged al Queens park, and with the
Red Shins playing down lhe slope in
lhe opening quarter, llle Vancouver
citadel was constantly in danger. Two
shuts had already beaten Hess, when
a shot from the side struck Griffith
and hounded neatly into the net.
The feeiirth goal was the result of a
high lightning pass to Bill Turnbull.
Turnbull was "checked" at the line,
hut the ball struck one of the sticks
and glanced into the nets, Hess being given no opportunity to save.
These two goals paved the way for
many more, and with a dash and
speed which lias characterized their
play in former years, the Royal City
home simply rained shots in on the
Vancouver net.

According lo reports from Toronto,
two amendments to lhe penally rules
of the Dominion Lacrosse Association of Canada have been adopted, and will be enforced in all succeeding games this year. The amendment! are :
Class A fouls���Any player penalized for a class A foul shall be banished from the game for a period of not
less than ten minutes or more than
twenty minutes, and shall he replaced by a substitute. The banished
player shall carry an automatic fine
of not less than $5 or more than
$20, and he shall he reported to the
president to be dealt with accordingly.
Class B fouls���Any player penalized for class B foul shall be fined not less than $2 or more than $5
for each offence.
Such stipulations, penalizing and
fining a player for an infringement
of the rules, may make lacrosse
a cleaner game although it is pointedly asked how a player can pay a
fine of $20 on a salary of $25 a
week. The management of a club
could not justly make the players
pay their own fines and would therefore offer to pay them itself. In
this way the good effect on the rule
would be offset to a large extent.

divide the series with them. The
Tigers sprung several surprises during iheir stay in the city and Joe Mc-
Ginnity and his hired help will have
a great deal to say before the race
is finished this year. The Tigers
are a dangerous club at any juncture
and more than the Vancouver club
will find  this out this summer,
The Portland club is with us this
week, and there is a merry battle on
the cards before this series is complete. The Portland club is right behind the Vancouver club in the chase
and the Beavers will have no easy
task in disposing of this combination.
Next week the Victoria club will
make its lirst appearance before the
Vancouver public. The Bees will not
play their first game in Vancouver
j until Thursday, the first three days
of the week being taken up with a
circus attraction. Bob Brown will
meet the Bees on their home lot for
these three games, transferring three
games to Vancouver later on in the
season. This will be another big
series as the Victoria club has been
going well during the past few weeks.

George E. McBride & Co. Will
Concentrate Efforts on Business
Corner Main Street and Sixteenth
Mr. George E. McBride, well known
hardware merchant, slates that business is good, neitwithstanding recent
acute spasms suffered by the money
market. McBride's are closing out
their Fraser street store and in this
connection, Mr. McBride had the following  tei  say  to  the  "Chinook" :
"We have decided to close our
branch store on Fraser street and 49th
avenue to enable us to cater entirely
to the household trade of South Vancouver  and  Mount   Pleasant.
"During the past few months we
have spent considerable amounts of
money on fixtures to help us handle
our rapidly increasing trade in this
"We realize that the people of
South Vancouver arc asking for
quality more and more. Our quality
is the essence of cheapness and we
in all modesty believe that this is
why such a large portion of thc house
hold trade bas conic our way in th I
past  few years.
"The time has conic when we must
handle a larger stock of househohl
necessities, and for this reason we
find it necessary to close our branch
store. We are therefore selling out.
Everything must go.
"We take this opportunity of thanking our numerous friends for then
esteemed patronage during the four
years we have been in business anil
ask for a continuance of your favors
"Many people think this is the da>
of Departmental Stores; it may be,
but thc time is coming when tbe big
bargain day will not lure the unwary
into paying exorbitant prices for j
other lines not specified in the advertisement. And we are sure that many
people are realizing this fact. This
aug.-rs well for the belief that in the 1
near future the storekeeper will he
ahle to get a fair share of the business of the locality which he serves.
"In   closing  our   ste,rc  at  49th  and j
Fraser, we realize that it will necessi-
tae  a   little     inconvenience    to     our I
friends in that locality, but our phone |
number  is   Fairmeint   899.    We   have
speedy   and   careful   delivery     which
will  still  bc at  your  service, and wc
can assure you of our-best attention j
to your smallest requirements."

By John  P.  Kyan, in  "King  Horse"
Having in regard tlie recent
"Derby." the following article may
he' of interest :
\\ hen grateful England commissioned a famous sculptor to design a
monument in memory ol Cecil
Kin ides, that sculptor moulded a
blooded horse, upon whole hack sat
a   strong   man.     England     applauded
tla- creation, because the statue was
emblematic eef the tremendous energy
of the gnat Empire builder.
Even in this wide-awake age. when
science il se earing as high as the
boundless thought of man can go;
alien ihe orhii of outer Neptune lias
heen figured "in to an inch; when men
can talk with one another across the
oceans, with ether waves a- a medium; when man, by his great development ni brain, has so added to the
gifts ..I nature, that he can travel in
the bowels of ihe earth, or the upper
regions of the atmosphere; while all
these things, and countless other
things have been done, the greal
problem of energy i- only in process
of discovery.
The nuest intense form of energy
made from earthly material, is radium. The most intense form of energy produced by mechanical power
is the X-Kay. Both nf these wonders .if science came to us only yesterday. No one knows what the future will bring forth.
W'e may guage how far man will
go by how far he has ascended from
primeval time to the present. That
man, and particularly the brain of
man, is improving, is shown by everything on this earth, except those
things, such as forests, earth and
ocean, and animals, which wcre here
before be arrived.    Every other thing,
is not sei important to men engaged
in National bureau work, as the fact
that be has this energy and is lavish
in the transmission of it to all breeds.
We know that the ancestors of the
thoroughbred horse have always been
well cared for, well fed. and well attended. 1 have thought that perhaps
the lirst horse ever domesticated was
probably  a  very young colt  whose
mother had been killed feir food.   The
offspring remaining as a pet of the
'children of primeval man. Since
that early time horses have been
-lain in battle and worked t'i death.
but the ancestors of the thoroughbred, although  developed by severe
I test, have been nurtured and their energy conserved by careful feeding,
careful attention and scientific breeding
I'h yeeeeil e|iialities of the sire have
been transmitted for hundreds of
years. The fnals have been carefully
reared, and the wants of even the nullum colt have been Btudied and sup-
plieel lee the mother. As far hack as
the sixteenth centurv we have records to show how a mare in foal
was fed with sifted grain, and with
sweetened, well cured hay. The
thoroughbred has been saved from
the most tremendous battle of life���
the  struggle   for  fond.
Nurture has combined with nature
to make him the embodiment of energy, and how it may be well to discuss briefly how this quality of the
thoroughbred is transmitted. We
know thai Germany, for example, by
mating thoroughbred sires with all
sorts of mares finally produced a
magnificent national type of horse.
This national type shows energy for
all sorts of work, which gives expres-
these thoroughbreds. Give earnest
thought to lhe blood lines and the
ancestry of those kings in the horse
weirld. Breed to beauty of form if you
may. but remember that the germ
plasma is the chief thing. The body of
a horse is just like the body of a man,
it is simply the protective covering of
the potentially immortal germ cell.
This is a truth which requires boldness to assert, but it is the truth nevertheless, as applied to physical man.
The wrath of nations fell upon the
bowed shoulders of a German  biolo-
gist, who frankly stated that the human mouth was merely the opening
of the alimentary canal.
If   I   were  a   German   professor   I
would  go  on   record   as  saying  that j
thc beautifully formed  female of the I
race,   clothed   in   expensive   silks   a
furs,   bedecked   with   the   feathers   of
rare   birds,  and   scented  by  the  perfumes of choicest flowers, in the cold
eyes eef science, looks merely like Hushed!   around   a   hickory   nut,   or   the
pulp  surrounding   the   seeds    of    a
Northern Spy.

A meeting of residents of Seiuth
Vancouver convened to protest
against the enforcement of the Sunday bylaw was held last Friday evening in the old Baptist church, Fraser
After some discussion thc following resolution was adopted and a
copy to he sent to thc attorney-general. "That this meeting, whilst approving of a day of rest, believe it
would be unwise and detrimental to
the better interests of South Vancouver and visitors to the district, to
prohibit the sale of refreshments,
candies, ice cream and tobacco on
Sunday, and therefore, request thc
council not to enforce the bylaw, except where merchants abuse the priv-
ilige and conduct their business in a
way objectionable to law-abiding citizens."

Union Services at  Collingwood
Sunday last saw the presbyterians
and methndists assembled together
for united services. In the morning
the service was held in the Methodist
Church, and in the evening at the
Carlton Hall where at present the
members and adherents of Knox
Presbyterian Church are holding their
Sunday services. At both services
the Rev. E. W. Morgan, B.A., B.D.,
was the preacher, and he expressed
the very great pleasure hc felt in this
practical demonstration of the real
unity of the churches, his only regret being that the pastor of the
Presbyterian Church, the Rev. G.
Pringle, was not present to take part
also, Mr. Pringle being at Toronto
attending the great Conference there.
Special music was rendered at both
services by the respective choirs, a
very especial feature at the Methodist
Church being a solo, "There is a
Green Hill," beautifully rendered by
Mrs. H. Aylott Martyn.
from a shoe string to an ocean steamship is the product of man's brain.
And what causes the brain of man
to produce such wonders? The answer must he, energy.
This is proven by the law that all
matter is energy in process, and that
any form of energy is convertible in
tn any other form of energy.    ,
Mailer, light, heat, motion, electrical and chemical change, arc all
forms of encre"'. To show heew ont
can he changed into the other, take,
for example, light and electricity. It
is now known beyond doubt that the
electrons from the sun, bombarding
the rarefied gases above the magnetic
pole, produce the Aurora Horealis. In
fact, an imitation of this phenomena
can bc produced in an ordinary test
tube by sending electricity through a
partial vacuum. To quote a plainer
example, the sunlight causes trees to
grow, the trees are buried beneath
the earth and changed into coal. Coal
is changed into motion in the form
eif a dynamo, which supplies an electric light. This is an example that
anyone can prove to his own satisfaction. To show that heat can he
resolved into motion, all one has to
do is to look at a locomotive. To
prove that motion can be transformed into heat, you have only to strike
a match. For a more penetrating
proof of this law, rub your knuckle
briskly along a board. The electric
tenet warmer shows very clearly how
electricity can be changed into heat,
and almost every cooking utensil
now-a-days can be run by electricity.
W'e have the electric toaster, which
singes bread, and we have the electric
furnace, which melts steel and carbon.
Admitting these easily proven laws,
we must also admit that energy is
everything. Perhaps its source can
be found in the glowing carbon of the
sun, but we have here only to deal
with its presence in earthly aflfairs,
and to make use of it when and
wherever  it can  be  harnessed.
The thoroughbred horse, from
time immemorial, has been noted for
his energy. It is the one quality in
this breed of horses which transcends
any other quality. Where the thoroughbred got this tremendous energy
sion in the ability to use weight and
power to the utmost, whether in pulling a plough, or drawing a gun carriage.
These qualities are first introduced by the germ cell of the thoroughbred. The germ cell in any living animal conies nearer to being immortal
than any other thing which can be
seen under the microscope. It is a
self-propagatinu eeli, which multiplies by dividing itself, and so far as
wc' know, it goes -on^ forever. Some
germ cells surpass other. Nature is
always trying to improve. Life always demands expansion, and expression. Hy careful -selection, animals
become more and more perfect, and I
llje perfection of any animal is,' tn a
large extent, ty visible proof of the
perfection of the germ cell in that
animal. To use the common expressions : "Blood will tell," and "like
begets like."
Environment counts for much, but
the sire's environment is not the colts
heredity. '
A thoroughbred horse is the most
perfect living thing on earth today,
next to man. In the wisdom of nature, he is able to pass his gifts along.
In every country on earth he has demonstrated this characteristic, and
Canada, I think, is lucky in being afforded the chance to make use of the
Thc highest evolved cells of thc human brain arc placed there in order
to enable men to think and create.
Any right thinking man must see the
value of breeding to energy. By doing so and using the thoroughbred
sire a new type of horse can be
created in Canada. It will not be all
plain sailing. There will be those who
disagree with plain truths and proven
facts. The North American Indian
looked upon the locomotive, not with
wonder but wdth disgust.
Any man or group of men, who digress from the beaten paths of any
pursuit, must know beforehand that
they are leaving the line of least resistance to take the line of most resistance, and if this results in nothing
else, it will deprive them of their own
energy.     And   energy   means  power.
