The Week's Happenings At The
South Vancouver Municipal Hall
Council by Majority Decide to Hold Tax Sale This Year���Also
Reinstate All Suspended Employees
rhe Municipal Council met on Monday afternoon, when the regular business which had been laid over front
last Friday night was taken up. A
communication wa! read from the
committee appointed to meet with the
School board senile time ago, re tlle
land allotment in South Vancouver.
The following is tlu- communication:
Gentlemen,���In accordance with the
object for which this committee ap-
ppinted feir the purpose- of interviewing the school board concerning
the utility of cultivating vacant school
sites in conjunction with the land offered hy Clements & Hayward, we
beg to  report  pnegri-ss  as  follows:
1. Altogether there arc 15 acres of
vacant school sites capable of being
cultivated with crops of various kinels
which, taken with the -6 acres nicn-
tioned above, makes a total of 41 acres.
2. Your conirfiittee would recommend that tin- land be divided up int"
1-+I acre holdings, which would measure say, 66x132 feet for each holder,
making 328 holdings. This would give
each holder practically all he or she
could efficiently take care of and cttl-
itvatc with any degree of success, as
the proposition is to encourage a side
industry fur thc working men of the

Agriculture to grant free seeds for
this venture and are in communication with the minister with that object in view.

municipality tn rough plow as a lirst
preparation and the holder could provide  their  own  tools,  etc.,  fnr  further
By  "Observer"
5. As the selection of the various
holders will be rather a difficult task,
we recommend that the different associations, together with the principals and teachers of our schools
should act as a committee eef selection. The council also, through each
ward  representative,  could    combine
individually to the- same end.���Signeel.

Considerable interest was aroused
over the next item of business. Coun
cillors Russell and Campbell moved
that Miss Dench be reinstated as
court stenographer at 6U dollars per
month. Reeve Gnld claimed that this
was nei postion for a woman and was
Strongly against the reinstatement.
Councillors Stanley. Campbell. Street
and Rowlings were in favor of letting
each committee of the- different departments act upon those matters but
strongly objected to the actinns of
the neve in making these suspensions
without ci insulting the council. Councilleir Allen suggested that a committee consisting eif Reeve Gold. Ceeiin-
e'ilhir Allen and the chairman of each
committee be appointed to investigate into all the departments and thus
get over llle deadlock which at present  exists.
Councillor Campbell pointed out
this was not necessary as there were
committees appointed fnr all nf these
departments ad it was their duty to
make rill these investigations anil repeirt tn council. It was finally moved
that Miss Dench be reinstated and
this motion was carried, the reeve dissenting.

The council, by a majority, recommended that a lax sale be held. The
solicitor anil tax collector were instructed   tei   prepare   documents   and
I make all necessary arrangements for
said tax sale, this to include taxes unpaid till the end of 1913, if found necessary.
Reeve Gold and Councillors Allen
and Welsh were against this, the latter stating he would only resort to
a tax sale as a last resource.
The next item was the reinstatement of Chief Lester. This caused
considerable argument and a deadlock almost resulted here. A motion
was put for reinstatement but the
reeve declared the motion out of order, and meantime declined to state
his reason for so doing. After considerable delay, during which the help
l,f the municipal solicitor was called
in. the matter was settled and the
Fire Chief again reinstated.
I see Reeve Gold has been at it
again, suspending reinstated officials
and employees. When will the man
elisplay thai common sense and business ability he was credited with before election? People are beginning
to think he is kicking in both coni-
me.ilitics and that his private secretary,
Mr. A. II. Seymour, is really the acting reeve of South Vancouver. This
impression is fostered by the fact that
even when llle reeve is conducting nn
ordinary meeting ������!' the council, Mr.
Seymour stands liy his side t" prompt
and advise him.

thing is that Reeve Gold has certainly no more, probably much less In do
than his predecessor, Reeve Kerr.
who managed tn get through all the
wnrk without the assistance of a private secretary, although Mr. Gold declared "il many occasions thai Mr.

The reeve is very fond "i explaining to the council, when dning thing)

Mr. Gold telling tin people lhat it' he
was elected reeve and ratepayers
wished tn consult him, "1 will always
give them an attentive hearing."
Since his election, however, Reeve
Gold, in nrder to evade the importunities "f ratepayers desiring to consult him in their need, has put the
municipality tn a gnod deal oi expense in structural alterations t" obtain privacy and has turned over I"
his private secretary lhe duly nf giving an attentive hearing tn ratepayers

Now as tn his promise of economy
and efficiency. Reeve Gold made a
great sprose in the newspapers shortly after his election of the thousands
a month Iie was going to save by closing down the C. P. R. springs anil
purchasing water from Vancouver. It
was shown at tiie time that such a
move on the part of the reeve and
council would be a dead 1"-- to the
municipality of about $20 a day. beside throwing seven men out uf employment anil addin�� to the unemployed problem in Smith Vanrouver.
Sinre that time. I understand, an experiment has been made by closing
down the C. P. R. springs temporarily and obtaining the water from Van-
souvcr. By the experiment it was
conclusively proved that to effect a
saving of $100 in wages and operating expenses an expenditure of $200
for water was necessary. Thus the
reeve's boast of being ahle to effect
ia saving of thousands a month by
closing down the C. P. R. springs
and purchasing water from Vancouver really meant a loss to South Van
couver workmen of the wages paid
fnr pumping ami the payment of
twice as much to Vancouver for water. Yet Reeve Gold claims tn be tlle
friend of Snuth Vancouver's working

Then lake the recent reduction in
Salaries. Certain employees would
ii"t stand for the reduction and resigned. What happened? Due employee whose wages were reduced
from S.S5 tee $65 a month was replaced
by a man at $90 a month whom Reeve
Gnld afterwards admitted was formerly employed by himself. Some saving effected there was there nnt? I Hi.
but! says the reeve, this man nf mine
is a mechanic who can do all the repairs oi the water works anil the lire-
department and every "ther department. Possibly. Hut, the man was
only t" he employed eight hours a
day. He was t" act as chaffeur tn the
engineer and the cnuncil. to look after the board of works auto and keep
it   clean   and   in   good   running   order,

wrks department and all repairs to
tin- tire-auto truck-, which are liable
tn be called out al any lieeiir uf the day
or night, and may meet with breakdowns on the way and have to be repaired on the spot; and all this vvrk
Reeve Gold's protege was tn do between the hours nf X a.m. antl 5 pill..
with an hour off fur lunch. Where
was tlu- economy and where was the
efficiency? In the nature of things
it was impossible for Reeve Gold's
protege t" cope with lhe work, which
thc reeve said he could dn. during an
eight hour day. Yel he proposed to
pay $90 a month tu an employee who
was t" replace one whose wages had
been reduced fmni $85 to $65. Again
I   say. where was lhe economy?
As te, efficiency, Reeve Gold, al
the infamous meeting which caused
every resident in the municipality
with any scum' ui decency t'i blush
with shame, read a statement announcing his intention m get rid of
certain employees, whu have been in
the service uf the municipality fnr
many years and are generally aihnit-
ted t-i be efficient servants, merely
because they happen to be friends or
relatives of some eene else in the employ ��� if the cnuncil ur nf councillors,

aware ai lhe lime that there was any
relationship between the two men.

The most important happenings at

had used language both foul and pru-
fane. Asked by counsel t" give thc
exact words alleged I" have been used
by Reeve Gold, Councillor Rowlings
gave two .sentences, which are unprintable. One nf these bore reference t" himself, the other referred '."

be shaken from his evidence.
Mr. Rubinowitz: "Is it nut so that

Mr. Rubinowitz put this witness

isfactkm of the people of Richmond. It will take more j
than the clever pen of Editor Scott of the "Xews-Ad- ]
vertiser" to fix the people on this interesting matter.
Ol'Tll VANCOUVER has been pretty well ger-
ymandered off the map. W'e still have a population of 30,000 or more, llowser has given us Baird
as a Conservative candidate. Baird is a stranger to
South Vancouver. His party is a stranger to the
people of South Vancouver. His policies will he poison in the stomach of South Vancouver.
East of Fraser Street the situation  will  fall to a
llurnaby man.
It is therefore up to the Liberals of South Vancouver to do all in their power to have a South Vancouver man nominated at the Eburne convention Friday
night. It should he borne in mind, however, that the
best'man, no matter from which quarter he may come,
should be made the standard bearer. There are many
South Vancouver Liberals who believe that the best
man at the present moment is Mr. Gerald G. McGeer.
It behoves them, therefore, to stand shoulder lo shoulder and give Mr. McGeer a good support.
Mr. McGeer is an able and vigorous young barrister. 1 Ic has not been above associating with us South
Vancouver people during the past ten years. Tie has
been a good worker for the cause of Liberalism. Ik-
is zealous, energetic antl honorable. He should be the
right kind of a man to sit on the Liberal benches at
Victoria and safeguard the interests of all the people
of this municipality and the other municipalities which
make up the constituency of Richmond.
WITH the discredited ex-Reeve Churchill on the
one hand and the notorious Edward Gold on the
other, Mr. llowser was rather handicapped at the Kalenberg Hall meeting.
Churchill is the man who handled the patronage on
the Greater Vancouver sewer work in the district. 1 Te
it was who stated that any poor devil seeking the privilege of throwing mud out of a    municeipal sewer
HEX will this municipality wake up to it-, full re-
ponsiliility. when will its citizens arouse themselves and realize that it is time to take action in their
own municipal affairs? We arc tinder a cloud which
even dav grows darker. Wit only are we as a municipality on the verge of bankruptcy, but we are discredited and made a laughing stock- eef by the outside
world today. Scenes unprecedented have taken
place in our niiel-t in the last few weeks and today we
stand humiliated before the eyes of men sverywhere.
The scenes of two weeks ago in onr council chamber were lamentable ami disgusting, hut to add to this,
we have jusl had another black blot mi the fair name
of the municipality's history. Last Saturday's proceedings in police court were surely enough to call
the ratepayers of this municipality to a halt, and claim
their attention. Action of a decisive nature is necessary anil action must he taken as quickly as possible.
This municipality's affairs are at a standstill, its credit is nil, and its manhood is being destroyed. \\ e
must look these facts in the face. The reeve charged
with breaking the law. the councillors held up and unable to do any business, when and where shall it end?
Words fail to describe last Saturday and Monday's
proceedings. Several councillors and some independent witnesses swore to hearing the reeve commit a
serious offence, while a large number of the citizens
of the municipality at the same time strove to prove it
untrue. Valuable time was spent and the municipality's affairs had to take care of themselves. Men. women and children are in need of help; men want work
and seek to earn a living but the arrogant, unbusinesslike tactics of the reeve and the time ta.<en up in unseemly squabbles in the council prohibits anything being done that could be done. There will have to he
a change: this state of affairs cannot be allowed to
go on. Thc reeve has stated he will stick to his policy
no matter what anyone else may do. The council so
far as the reeve is concerned, may as well never have
been elected. And he has some reason for taking up
this attitude. When men will constitute themselves
guards of the reeve and in open court will admit that
they are present in council meetings to protect the
reeve and sustain him in whatever he does, surely he
has some reason for thinking he is thc one and only.
Alas! what evil days we have fallen upon, 1 low difficult it is to understand men and women. Reeve Gobi
in his suspension of the court stenographer has distinctly stated his reason as being, that the court room

tiie reeve last Saturday forenoon, when language unprintable was being discussed anil repeated in court, a
lady stenographer took down all the evidence of the
witnesses fpr the prosecution and she was brought

IT IS MOST ENCOURAGING te. the one trying to

that district who were not able to go to the city a

The Important Matter of Choosing Your Dentist
Good  Teeth

the  most
What are
"The Last Word
in Dentistry."
CIIERE is nothing so important to your health and efficiency as the matter with
your teeth. Sound, useful, beautiful Icelh should be yours���teeth that enable
you to bite, chew and smile in comfort. Decayed teeth cause, not only continual
Inconvenience, but permanent ill-health. It is your duty to yourself to economize
:n other ways so that you may secure teeth that look natural, feel natural and per-
furni the functions which Nature allotted to those important members.
CKEREFORE you should choose your dentist with great care. It is poor
economy to buy "bargain teeth." Inferior dentistry���poor materials, little
knowledge and less care���costs hut litlle less than the right kind even at thc beginning, and certainly is much more expensive in thc long run.
X EMPLOY only the most modern methods, the greatest care and skill and the
best materials. Each individual case is carefully studied. When I fit you
with my "Nature teeth" they look, fit and feel like the ones Nature gave you. And
you will find my prices no higher than those of ordinary dentists.
GOME in and allow me to examine your mouth, advise you and give you my
estimate of the cost. This will involve no obligation whatever. Make up
your mind now to see to those teeth. Then call, plume or write to me now,
making appointment for examination.

iii coorse, ihe last wheen years
back in liritish Columby has been the
era ij' boom wi' a Iiiy ii. Everything
in the real estate line, an' even in-
cludin' the weemen's skirts, reached
the high water mark. Twa u' the
greatest boomsters were in control an'
they appinteil a whole lot o' subsidiary hoi air artistes tae gae awa abroad
an' expound the gospel o' boost.
These fellies were held yins in their
profession, an' got the auld country
financiers sae workit up about the
"glorious opportunities" that for a
guid wheen years the bawbees wis
comin' in by the cairtload.
Richt here, I dinna want yae tac
rin awa wi' the idea that I'm tryin'
tae iniiiereslimate the naitural resources o' this province���faur frae it. I
michl say that that's aboot tlle only
time I can agree wi' ior 11 imperial
premier, when he says tir1' it is tlle
richest province "' Canady.
lint, comma, the money thai came
in, while logically intended tae develop Ihey naitural resources, went
insteed intae buildin' up a great big
machine whose only object wis tae
contreel they naitural resources in iln
interests o' a  favored lew.
Latterly, the "wise men ee' the easl"
gut a wee bitty wiser, especially when
they commenced tae hear o' sae mony
"flinirishiu' institushons" gaun tae the
wa', an' the result wis that the supply
o' reaily cash wis suddenly cut off.
Frae thai time the government has
been in hei water. As long as they
could keep the machine weel greased
everything wenl like a hoose mi lire.
Dicky made frequent trips lae the auld
country an' frequented the drawin'

course, came back wi' a hauiulle tae
his name
Wee Wullie. hooever, wis the real
villain o' lhe piece. While Dicky acted as a lirst-cle.-s drummer, the wee
yin had the real control o' the whole
bally  sheiotin' match an'  in  ceeurse  o'

Hut nne. ihe grease has commenced
tae gei scarce an' the machine i- beginnin' tae mak tunny nuise-s. an' it
wild seem as if the whole wnrk- wis
inclined tae fa' tae pieces.
The' real cause o' lhe postponment,
as I said, is obvious tae onybody that
has watched they proceedin's. While
they could keep the machine rinnin'
smoothly an' noiseless as lung as they
laid on plenty grease, nun, wi' the
lack o' tlle bawbees, they're in a ser-

lii inns. In llie lirsl place, il did nol

was burned there ami pletiful    grog
was nuzzled.    Tlic only inleir  was the
rather pleasant one ot a mild antiseptic f.er a small boy lay in the bed beside the south window and lhe big
mound beneath ila- snowy counterpane was caused by llie plaster cast
and pine b'ex that confined one of his
lens. Ik- was a delicate little fellow,
with slender, white hands, and lie liked besl to sit propped up in bed with
a drawing beeard across his thighs and
a pad of paper anil his pencil box within easy reach, for llie days were
long in which he bad to remain there,
waiting to see if the leg that he had
���upposed would always be lame might
emerge from the cast and the box
lame no more.
Near tiie west window was a small
table, with a few vials, a tumbler in
which a thermometer reposed, and another tumbler full of clear, cold water,
and near the table was a chair in
which one could almost always see
llie trained nurse, her crispy blue anil
while stripes; but on tlle either side of
the bed was another chair, with rockers and a soft cushion and a cushioned back, and a sewing bag hung over
one arm anil often, during the day,
the little boy's grandmother sat there,
a gentle, sweet-faced old lady wilh a
silent litlle curl hanging before each
ear and gold-rimmed spectacles resting on her nose, and lier hands���as
thin but nut as smooth as the boy's
hands���busy with some bit of old-
lady's  work.
There were many other things in
the room. There were pictures such
as a boy likes on the walls, and a case
of books, and a mantlepiece with an
accumulation of toys, and two crutches in a comer, and a hot water bottle
on the shelf under the nurse's table,
and an electric light fixture near the
head of the bed, and a rug on the
floor, and a pretty wall paper on thc
wall, and a small dresser in one corner, and two more chairs; but of all
thc things in the room the grand-
���mother was the most important. It
was shc who read the books when the
boy was not too tired to be read to,
and they were bully books���real boy's
books, anil not  wishy-washy at all.
See, if you knew no better, you
would have said the room was a sickroom anil that the little boy in thc
bed was the sick boy, and that everything was spotlessly clean and sweet
and comfortable, and that no rough
old sea-dogs ever entered it. But appearances are never to be trusted, for
Cap'n Bill Duff, and Cap'n Tom
Briggs were there much of the time,
and good, hearty, cursing old sea
swaggers they were, too.
The little boy put his pencil carefully in his pencil box, closed the box
and pushed it away from him on the
counterpane. He had been drawing
lines and rough pictures on a sheet of
paper for half an hour. Now hc folded the paper carefully only to unfold
it again. He frowned as he looked
at it.
"Hill, old tar," hc said in his thin,
childish voice, "what's this here 1
"Let me sec it, dearie," said the
grandmother, adjusting her spectacles
and dropping her sewing on her lap.
'You don't say that, Grandma," said
the boy. "Don't you remember? You
ray, "Why, bless my eyes, old feller!
Let me cock an eye at it, Tom
Briggs.' "
"Why, bless my eyes, old feller!
Let me cock an eye at il, Tom
Briggs I" repeated the grandmother.
She took the sheet of paper and held
il before her eyes, moving it back and
forth to find thc proper distance.
"Now you say, 'Tar my topsails,
Tom Briggs, if this ain't the map wc
been loeikin' for these twenty years
aback,' Grandma."
"Yes. Tar my topsails if it ain't,
Tom Briggs," said the grandmother.
"It's the selfsame map old Peg-Leg
Bleieiilyboncs made, showing where he
hid   the   treasure   he   took   from .
What  did  he  take  it  freim  this  time,
"You must read it," said the boy.
"In the corner of the map.'
"Map of where 1 hid lhe treasure
leeeek from the gallceii 'Golden liul.'���
Peg-Leg Bloodybones, Pirate of thc
Spanish Main,'" read the grandmother.
"That's right," said the boy. "And
blow my buttons, Cap'n Bill, if we
ain't lucky to discover this here map.
Wc been searching the Spanish Main
for that treasure a-many years, and
never found trace of it, and here we
run across the very map a-laying a-
cross the table in this bar-room. It
do beat all! Bartender, another glass
of grog!"
The nurse handed tin. boy thc tumbler of water from her table and he
sipped it daintily.
"An old feller like mt has to warm
his innards a bit when he has big
work on hand," said the boy. "Nothin' like a glass of grog to set up old
Tom Briggs. When I get a swig of
grog in me I'm ready for anything
that comes. Thank you, nurse, that
is all I want to know. And, now,
Cap'n Bill, let's t.i work."
"My poor old eyes are getting so
bad 1 can hardly make out what you
draw any more, dearie," saiid Cap'n
Bill Duff, wiping her spectacles on
her  lace-edged  handkerchief.
"I'll tell you what you can't see,"
said Tom Briggs. "I can remember,
Grandma. And, lirst off, Bill, old feller, we got to get a ship, and here me
and you are, stranded in this inn, with
harlly a farthing between us, and our
sea chests held for board. Neiw you
tell about Red-Headed Simon."
"Don'l   let   that   worry   you,     Teim
Briggs," said the grandmother. "With
that   map  in   haml  we  need  have     mi
fear.    You recollect old Red-Headed
Simon, that sailed with us iu the
'Roaring Bess?' lie's in purl and lie's

crew- of cut-throats .is a man would

is what  1 say, Tom Briggs."
"All righl.    You did that very nicely,  Grandma,"  said  ihe  boy.    "And
we'll skip most of tlle rest, because
you'll never, never lind the hidden
treasure this time. We're all on
board lhe 'Roaring Bess,' now, and
there's plenty of sea biscuit and grog

Let me see! Red-Head, you rascally

far lo windward. Look at the map,
"Map your grandmother!" said the
boy. "Don't the map say 'Coral Island?' Ain't i sailed to and by Coral
Island more times than you've got

up lo it with my eyes shut in any gale

"A map is a map," said Rill Duff.

boy. "And I say��� Of course a map

Your map i.s all right, Bill Duff, for
to show us where the treasure is hid
on the island, but I don't take no map
that Peg-Leg Bloodybones ever
scrawled, drunk or sober, to show me
the way to Coral Island"
"It is time to have your temperature taken now," said the nurse.
"All right,' 'said the boy. "Sambo,
gimme my pipe!"
lie allowed lhe nurse to place the
thermometer under his tongue. As
it lay there he puffed at it, and when
the minute was up lhe nurse took the
thermometer again, glanced at it and
placed it in the glass of water.
"Nothin' like a good whiff of tobacco to cool a man down when he's
getting riled up," said the boy. "The
blessed weed calms the nerves, hey,
Bill Duff? Gimme a chaw or a smoke
when  limes is irritating, I  say."
For days and weeks the two had
played this game���the little boy and
the grandmother���sailing out of Falmouth Harbor in search of hidden
treasure, two tough old tars, one propped up against his pillow and the other sitting in her rocking chair, swigging their grog and rapping out blood
curdling oaths. Sometimes they were
chased by revengeful British men-o'-
war that belched chain shot from the
portholes of three decks; sometimes
they doused all lights to scutter close
under lhe overhanging cliffs and escape the sharp eyes of a Salem privateer; sometimes they fought hand to
hand with the bloodthirsty pirates of
the Barbary Coast. Seldom were they
able to reach Coral Island without
wading in blood lo iheir knees, and
mi some voyages���when the Title boy
felt better than im other day:-���they
fought and defeated Spanish galleons.
Bedford whalers, Salem privateers,
British nnu-o'-war, Barbary pirates,
junks of China, and slavers of Havana
in quick succession.
Since old Tom Brigg and old Bill
Duff first met in lhe bar-room of the
Black Hoar Inn with the glasses of
grog between ihcm and the map ou
the coarse deal tabic, they had scuttled enough ships ta lill the ocean and
permit them to walk drysl oil lo Coral
Island, anil ihey had cut enough
throats to turn the ocean to a permanent crimson hue. Scarce a voyage they did not see a mutiny of lhe
crew, put down ly the iron hand of
the little boy. or a wild rush i f savages over the gunu'ls in which the
"Reearing Bess" was saved from capture eenly by the heroic efforts of the
grandmother who, cutlass in mouth,
pistol in either hand and a rag bound
around her bleeding head, destroyed
the brown men as relentlessly as a
mower fells the grain. Hut, frightful
as the voyages were, heaping on the
heads of old Tom Briggs and old Bill
Duff all the adventures in all the books
iu thc little boy's bookcase, and tremendous as the odds against the two
tough old mariners were, thc "Roaring Bess" always crossed the bar at
last and dropped her anchor in the
calm water inside the atoll of Coral
Then the real work began, far al!
else was mere preliminary, then old
Bill Duff spread the faded map upon
hcr knees���if it was her turn to hunt
the treasure; or old Tom Briggs
spread it out on thc counterpane���if
���it was his turn��� and the search for
the hidden treasure began in earnest.
Then the room, which had been the
bar-room of the Black Boar, thc deck
of the "Roaring Bess," cr some island
where the famishing crew had stopped to lill the water casks and battle
with the savage natives, became Coral
Island itself. The nurse, sitting in her
chair by the window, vanished, and
floor and wall became plain and hill;
anil furniture, pictures, medicine vials,
toys and all else became mounts and
ridges, caves, hidden grottos and all
the features of the favorite hiding

and with the faded map in hand. A
map is a map, as old Bill Duff had
said; hut when drawn by the rough
hand eif Peg-Leg Bloodybones, and
that hand stiffened in ileath, it is hard
to make head or tail of the signs and
symbols the old pirate jotted down,
for he was a sly old deeg, was Peg-
Leg, and given to cryptograms so involved that beside them thc map of
thc hidden treasure teeld of in Mr.
I'oe's "Gold Bug" story would bc as
plain as the grog-reddened nose ou
old  Bill  Duff's face.
A sigh of pleasant anticipatiem passed old Tom Hrigg's lips and he
straightened himself a little on bis pillows as old Hill Duff took up the map
and adjusted her spectacles again to
study it. Sometimes the hidden treasure was found almost witbeeut a
search. "It is behind the picture of
your father when he was a little boy."
old Bill Duff would say. "Yes," old
Tom Briggs would answer from thc
bed, regretfully. "You guessed it the
very first time. Hut you mustn't call
it a picture. Grandma. Don't you remember it is the crystal cave- ten paces from tbe cocoanut palm?"
Hut the hidden treasure was seldom
found so easily. That was very rare
indeed, with a map as cranky and
hard to understand as thc map made
by old Peg-Leg Bloodyboiu s.
"You'll never guess this time!" said
thc little beiy joyfully. "Yeni'll have
to sail back tei Falmouth Harbor without it, this time, Grandma. See if
you don't!"
"Perhaps I will, Tom Briggs," said
the grandmother; "but it will he cruel
hard on me, mate, tn dee without tbe
treasure. Let mc see. dearie! It is
hidden in the crystal cave."
"Nol" shouted the little boy joyously, clapping liis hands. "You can't
even enter tbe crystal cave, for I am a
big black bear tbat drives you away."
"So you are!" said she. "And here
is the picture of you on tbe map."
The little hoy leaned over.
"No, that's not the bear," be said.
"That's a wild boar. Tbat is tlle bear
in  the other  corner."
"Why, so it is!" said the grandmother. "And a very good likeness
of a bear for a little boy to draw."
"I put 'li' on it, fnr 'bear,' so you
wemld know," said the little by; "but
I put 'H' em tbe boar for 'boar,' too.
Se, lhat was my mistake, and you
must not mind that you didn't know
which was which. Guess again,
Grandma���old  Hill Duff.  1   mean."
"It is��� What is tbe clock this
time,"Tom  Briggs?"
"The clock is the hollow tree beside
the burning river." said the boy. "The
mantelpiece is the burning river, you
."So it is," said the grandmother,
"and I get across by swinging from
limb to limb, like a monkey, because
I've seen tbe memkeys cross it so. I
guess  the  treasure  is  in  tbe  clock."
"Xn!" crieil the boy gleefully.
"That's twu guesses, and it isn't in
the clock, because lm a horde of savages, right in the middle of the map,

arm, anil yen have to suck out the
poison. Guess agaain, Grandma!"

"Rah and his Friends," crawling
through the long black tunnel under

dog could have lived through SO many cruel adventures, but he was a
tnuglt one. was old Bill Duff. Serpents and leopards and cougars bit
him; wild boars tore him with their
tusks; savages dismembered him ruthlessly; he fell down precipices and in-
iee boiling springs and into molten
lava that poured from the furnace register, and the proteafl Tom Briggs,

Dominion Trust Depositors Enter
Into The Provincial Campaign
Popular Secretary, Mr. J. S. Cowper, Requested To Take Up
Cudgels In Forthcoming Campaign
The  Dominion Trust depositors do
��� mean to allot* the opportunity to
slip at the forthcoming election ol

t ncial li use to look after tln-ir Inti : ests
This vva- del ided at a well
meeting of depositor! in the Dominion
Trust building last Tuesday, and Mr.
.1 S. Cowper, secretary "i the special
depositors' committee, and journalist,
was the unanimous choice of the ga-
The matter was broached after the
secretary had reported at considerable
length as iee the legal opinions re-
ceived since the last meeting as tee
the feasibility of entering civil and
criminal proceedings against the directors for alleged malfeasance of duty.
It was een the whole a discouraging
statement. The meeting also passed
a resolution to ask the Premier what
the governmenl intended to eh. with
the sum of $250,000 which had been
voted nt the recent session for the
benefit of the creditors and depositors.
The matter of nominating a Dom-
ininn Trusi depositors' candidate was
broughl forward by Mr. John Kan-
kin, wlm occupied the chair, lie said
there were 27IK) depositors of the
company in tbe city and lie believed
they could elect a candidate who weiuhl
hulk after their interests in the legis-
lature, Tlu- liquidation would cover a
number nf years ami such a member
in the House was necessary, lie said
thai " "���'.ir Williams had done

had t.e take nieest of his information
from the newspapers. lie 111, ,n 14 li t
the entire connection between the legislature and tlie Dominion Trust
Company should be dun up and exposed, lie blamed Mr. Bowler for
the whole of their trouble.
After   Saying   that    llie   e|tit'.li,,ii   of
selecting such  a  candidate  might  be
new I" many of the,se present, he
moved a resolution to the effect that
ihe meeting should invile Mr. J. S.
Cowper,   their   worthy   secretary,   to
j run lor the legislature I'i fight their
cause there anil that all present should
pledge themselves  to supporl him.

that he had been retained by two e.i

Mr. J. A. Russell's written opinion

reael al the next nieeling. continued
Mr. Cowper. but from conversation!
with him it coulel be gathered thai his
eipinieui was to the effect that mch

on certain grounds. Mr. Wilson
thought thai lhe question of bringing -lull suits depended very largely
on the status of the depositor!

Mr. (',. 11. llealey thought the Premier should be asked as to the intention eef the government in regard to

that the sum of $250.(101) had been voted by tiie legislature and this sum

distribution might be delayed if counsel for thc liquidator tried lo make
this sum an asset in the general liquidation, He hoped no dispute
would arise in regard tei it and he
would be sorry if the money was left
to the liquidator tei distribute because the dpepositors woud get a
larger share if distribution was made
direct from Victoria. The government, naturally, wanted to see thc
depositors   get   as   much   as   possible.
Mr. Rankin thought Mr. Bowser
should be asked for a definite statement in regard to the government policy ill this regard.

Mr. Donnelly's company, the Canadian Financiers, is a stmng and reliable trust company, and was one of
the concerns which demanded the

Mr. Bowser so reluctantly placed upon the law books of the country.

Collingwood  Institute  Concert
The concert which was given at the
Collingwood   Institute,   by   the   kindness of the Vancouver Women's Musical Club, will bc long remembered by
those  who  were  fortunate  enough  to
accept   the   invitation   to   be   present.
The  hall  was  quite  filled  and among
the   audience   were   recognized   many
well-known   lovers   of   music.     Quite
a  number  of  people   came   out   from
Vancouver  to   Collingwood  and,  seeing   the   Institute   for   the   first   time,
expressed   themselves   surprised     and
pleased lhat  Collingwood  had such a
useful  and  pleasant  little  library  and
Institute.     Among   the   visitors   wcre
Mrs.   Leckie   (president   of   the   Women's   Chib),   Mrs.   and   Miss   Scott,
Several   members   of   the   University
Club, Mrs. Bennett, Mr. and Mrs. McFarland,   Mr.   and   Miss   Williamson,
Mr. W. II. Kent, Mrs. Akhttrst, Mrs.
Aubrey   Goodall,     and     other     well-
known people.    Thc party  from Vancouver   wcre   a   little   late,   as     they
came out by motor, and  Mr.  Goodall
and  Mr.  W.   H.  Moore  filled  up  the
few   minutes'   wait   with   capital   recitals,  and  Miss  James    and       Mrs.
Stewart  kindly  gave  pianoforte  solos
and   then   began   the   real   concert  of
the   evening.     Mrs.   Reid   opened   the
programme   with   a   charming   ballad
which was warmly encored, and,    indeed,  encores   were  the  order  of  the
evening;   every  artist   kindly   complying with  the request  conveyed by insistent  applause.    There   is  no  need
to   dwell   upon   the   beautiful     violin
playing  of  Miss   Margaret   McCraney
���the  artist   has   established   for   herself a reputation far and wide.    Xever
did  artists  play  to  a   more  appreciative   audience.     Tlle   pee,pie   of   Collingwood  were   quite   spellbound   and
among  those   who    applauded    most
vigorously was the veteran Mr. Thomson-Mitchell,   himself   a   violinist     of
some  repute.     Professor  James  Tait,
another well-known  musician, was also  most   enthusiastic,     Miss   Suzanne
Sickletnore   danced   Weber's   "Invitation to the Dance," and entranced the
audience,   everyone   being   almost   as
much on tiptoe as the dancer.    Later
em   the  charming   little   Terpsichorean
gave her well-known emotional dance
"The Dying Swan," which almost beguiled   the   audience   eef   their     tears.
Miss Ellen  Badgeley gave several recitations, ranging  from  grave to gay,
and concluded with that splendid gem
from  recent  Canadian  lyric  literature
"Our   Bit   of   the   Thin   Red   Line."
Splendid   songs   by    Mr.     Goodstonc
and   some   humorous   and   altogether
unique bits of fun by Mr. I, D. Car
son were also notable  items in a re
markable programme.    Mr. J. Francis
Bursill   and   others   warmly     thanked
the  Women's  Musical  Club  for  their
delightful    entertainment    and    Mrs.
Leckie   acknowledged   the     vote     of
thanks which was carried by loud acclamation.    At  the  conclusion  of  the
concert many visitors stayed for light
refreshments,   that   department   being
kindly  looked   after   by   Mrs.   Platten
and other kindly neighbors and friends
of the Institute.

The Liberal convention for Vancouver South will bc held in the Collingwood Institute on Tuesday evening, March 23rd, for thc purpose of
selecting a candidate for this constituency to contest the coming election.
A debate between thc boys of Brit-
tania High School and South Vancouver High School is to take place
on Friday. March 19th. Subject: "Be
it resolved that the senate be abolished."
The name of Dr. T. Glendou Moody
we arc assured by many of his supporters, will be put forward for nomination on thc straight Liberal ticket
at the Liberal convention tonight,
Friday. Interviewed on the question.
Dr. Moody stated that he will gladly
accept nomination should it bc offered.
Dr. Moody is one of the younger
element of the Liberal party. A native son, well and favorably known in
Vancouver business circles, his nomination is likely to receive hearty support from the electors. In political
life he won his spurs during the January municipal elections in contesting a seat for thc license board. He
made a most successful run in an
election when a conservative machine was known to be in action and
although defeated his vote of 4375 at
that time is a fair indication of his
standing and popularity.
