Trustee Hudson Charged With
Favoring Outside Merchants
School Board Orders Have Been Switched, It is Charged, to
Uptown Firms, Though Local Men Could Save the Board
Money
Tin: South Vancouver School Board
appointed one eif its members to gn
with a committee of teachers and officials and buy three cooking ranges
fe.r the domestic science department.

Local   linns'  price      72.00
S'Hitli    Vancouver    ratepayers
lose     $15.00
There are three ranges. Therefore
$45.00 which might be devoted to the
purchase of meals for the children
during the winter months is thrown
away.
South Vancouver hardware merchants were met given an opportunity eef tendering on tbe particular
type of range required. The order
feir tbe three ranges was switched to
Martin, Finlayson and Mather, a Vancouver firm, who bad t'i buy freun
the Mime wholesale Ilemse which supplies the ten eir twelve South Vancouver  hardware  men.
Local hardware men who brought
this malter te. llie attention of the
CHINOOK point out that the Hoard
of School Trustees as a body have
been very fair tee tlle local merchants.
The official alleged to have been responsible for ibe shifting of business

Semlli Vancouver merchants, with eme
exception, were not given an opportunity to tender.
It is charged that Trustee Hudson,
since bis appointment, has weirked
zealously to secure for Messrs. Martin. Finlayson and Mather all the pat-
re, nage feer hardware supplies from
the Semth Vancouver Schools. N'at-
urally. local hardware merchants, whei
have in limes past been treated with
more or less fairness by the board
are indignant.
One of the local merchants concerned slated to tlie CHINOOK that
approximately $700 was spent upon
the stoves and other equipment. Not
one dollar of this sum stayed in Soulh
Vancouver, despite the fact that the
local merchants with the same article
were able to bid lower than Vancouver  linns.
It was further pointed out that at
this time, with the financial situation
sei seriieiis. that co-operation  should
be   encouraged   locally   and   thai     all
members of the School Board should
be leaders in such a movement. The

Militia Department's Orders
Cause Anxiety in Local Homes
Men are Neither In Nor Out of the Army and Demobilization
Order Has Caused Uneasiness and Want
Semth Vancouver has felt keenly
the remarkable demobilization   order
issued a fortnight ago.
In the Collingwood district alone,
Councillor Rutledge is authority for
the statement, three hundred and
lifly men who hael joined tlle orders
find themselves in a strange predicament.
These men may be called upon at
any moment to rejoin their regiments.
In the meantime, however, they are
out eif employment for the most part.
Their allowance freun tlle army has
been cut eeff. They had tee give up
their regular employment in order to
join the army. They are neiw, neither
in n.ir oul of the army. Any work
they may take up will be e.f a temporary character f'er tiny know not
the elay nor the hour in which one of
those telegram- may come through
from Col. Sam Hughes ordering re-
mobilization.
Men who were at Prince Rupert
with the Fusiliers have returned and
their plight is probably worse than
that of the men who were garrisoned
locally.
It is estimated that South Vancouver gave- more than 1.500 men to the
local regiments up and above those
��he>  went  to   Valcartier.
Many of the local men are trained
Soldiers and all are anxious to be given
an opportunity to serve their country. The fact that demobilization
orders came through had a bad influence in miiiu- quarters upon the
support being given the collectors for
the  War  Fund in  the various wards.

HAVE CONFIDENCE
ENCE, have confidence," said Sir Rich-
McBride  al   the  recent   conference  when
ways and means of tiding  over the  war depression
were discussed.   The oldtimer who worked the shell gathering would have a Conservative member in attendance tei give the henchmen pointers on how tlie
present time it is not our purpose to go into this. At
best until things get back to normal again we can only
hope to alleviate this evil and at this time we wemld
ask the government of B. C. what they intend to do in
the premises.
The cities and municipalities have almost come to
the end of their tether in the line of providing work
Inr this huge army and now tlle only way in which
they can deal with it is through seune form of charitable relief.
Thousands upon thousands of able bodied men are
here in this province���ill this city, the flower of an industrial army, men wlm are eager, anxious ami ever
so willing tn work so that bread might he found for
lheir wives and children, hut are denied that right
whieh is their only guarantee of life.
W'e have beard e.f the silent navy lying in the North
Sea. While we are eager to get any scrap of information whieh would let us know how they fare, yet
their silence gives no forebodings, for confidence rests
supreme in every liritish breast. This silence is practical policy in the war game and any child could readily 'understand that it is dictated by minds who have
a thorough grasp of the situation.
Kftt we have a silence in liritish Columbia whieh
threatens to net in a reverse way.
Before the war every  little backshop Conservative
fortunately such heroism in times of peace���in the
battle of man against the high cost of living; in the
conquest of the forest and the swamp; in the struggle
against sickness and poverty ; in the combat with the
forces of the Evil < Ind���is rarely published in the newspapers.
The- Higiilanilman of the llrid^e nf SoissotM has
gone t" hi- fathers and there i- snrrnw in some obscure Highland ceittage. lie is gone, though tlie
bridge has been saved���and gnne with him is a whole
race of heroic soils and daughters never Imrn. A
poor, sickly, sunken eyed, dissipated half-brother, physically unlit to ge tn tin- front, i- left te> perpetuate the
name���the name alnne hul imt tiie Mood and guts of
him who held the bridge.
BY THE WAY
"G
games at tlle Western Ontario fairs used the selfsame
words, And th* farm lads gave up their money like
lambs.
All ihat the unemployed in Snuth Vancouver require is confidence, Just gn tn a grocer. Tell him
you have confidence ami he'll give ynu anything you
want in the shop.
If you have paid twenty dullars a month for six
yetrs on a building lot, have the hundred dollars to
p:i\ and no money with which to pay it, go to the loan
company and tell the manager that you have confi-
fei.ee and you will be given an unlimited period of
time, with no interest, in which to meet the balance.
if you go to the front and leave a penniless wife
and three children behind you, just tell them to have
confidence and they will be provided for.
That's the way that the-great generals handle their
amies. They give the men guns, but pay no attention to commissary. They march 'em up against the
enemy and tell them to have confidence.
Serve the devil all your life, beat your wife, get
drunk, gamble, steal,' murder and smoke cigarettes.
On your death bed have confidence. It will come out
alright.
Have confidence lads, elect McBride and Bowser
again, and British Columbia's future will he assured.
THE POLITICAL TRUCE
A QUESTION that absorbs public attention in
Vancouver and the surrounding district at tbe
present time���secondary only in importance to the war
Mtu^tiQii���is the problem of what is going to be done
in tlie way of relieving tlie terrible distress which already exists among the working men residents, their
wives and children.
I At the start of the war Sir Wilfrid Laurier sounded the keynote, which was followed throughout the
length and breadth of Canada, that during this crisis
the country would know no division and that the opposition would for the time being sidetrack any policy
which would tend to embarrass the government of the
country in its laudable purpose of helping the motherland.
That feeling has been echoed in this province and
prominent liberal speakers have at times vouchsafed
their support to the government at this time when all
other issues became secondary to the welfare of the
Empire as a whole.
If we except the socialists and the I.W.W. organization we would find that the same feeling permeated
the rank and file of the electorate generally.
That being so it would necessarily follow that the
provincial government would leave no stone unturned to justify the confidence tints reposed in them.
The war. with ils inevitable upsetting of trade and
Commerce, accentuated in a marked degree the almost
chronic state of poverty a vast number of the citizens
of II. C. have been living in.
The horrible crime which precipitated practically
the whole nf Europe intn bloody warfare has alse
been the means of placing thousands of families in
British Columbia in a state nf poverty which should
have the earnest attention of the government at once.
While other provinces in Canada are facing the
situation bravely and instituting schemes whereby the
workers will he protected during this crisis, the government headed by Sir Richard McBride sits supinely by and���does nothing, yet it is safe to say that in
no other province in Canada is the situation so acute
as in this���to quote Sir Richard's own words���the
banner province of the Dominion.
Patriotic funds have been inaugurated and liberally
subscribed too. and it is safe to say that the dependents
of our brave soldier hoys will have at least the ordinary comforts extended to them the while their sons
and husbands are at the front.
But there is another phase of patriotism which calls
for equal attention and unless attended to at once will
bring the mark of reproach to the province, to Canada,
and to the whole British Empire.
The unemployed problem is no new situation in B.
C.���shame though it is to say it in such a young place.
The causes of it are not far to seek either, but at the
province was progressing.
If the company was sufficient!) inviting perhaps
even nne nf tin- twu autocrats wemld lend his presence.
While the oratory was never brilliant, yet it always
reminded us that we had some semblance tii government in B. C.
I'.ut now���all is silence. The old saw, "Silence is
golden," would appear In he the attitude taken up Indus oligarchy.
While mayors and reeves and councilnien are at
their wits end trying to alleviate in a small way this
terrible situation in the province the "heavenly twins"
go nn in their own silent way and tell us to have con-
fidencj.
The province has come to a stage of its existence
when this government will have to justify its retention
of powei or get out and let others more capable take

It is sheer incapacity on the part of this autocracy
which is responsible for this terrible suffering in our
midst���stories of want and distress arc here which
would put to shame any old country slum.
Thousands of acres of good agricultural land lying-
idle and thousands nf good able-bodied men in a state
of poverty. A first primer child could answer the
question as to how to bring these two together.
A truce to politics. Ye Gods, if it is to be at the
expense of the red blood of our women and children
away with it!
THE WAR AND II. C. MINERALS
your mines ready." advised Col. I.owcry,
the Greenwood editor, a man who has an extensive knowledge of mining. "During tlie past ten
years the average cost ,,i producing the world's Cupper supply has been nine and a half cents a pound, and
the average selling price fourteen and a half cents a
pound. During the next ten years the average selling
I price of cupper will probably be about seventeen cents
a pound. The future for copper never looked better
since- llu- n-t\ metal appeared on earth.
Alter the war there should he a mining boom in
British Columbia. And there no doubt will he. The
railways have opened Up areas nf mineral lands hitherto almost inaccessible,
The Port George Herald says:
"It recent discoveries of gold in tiie Port George
district pmve well founded ami as valuable as mam-
believe, we may look for the rapid settling of this
northern interior of British Columbia with strong
and determined men. It will increase circulation of
gold and stimulate trade, industry and commerce. It
will bring to the attention of the world the valuable
timber and agricultural resources of this country.
Many of us have long believed that gold was here in
great abundance. It simply required the completion
and facilities offered by the Grand Trunk Pacific and
tbe Pacific Great Eastern railways to enable experts
to get into the country with machinery to prospect, develop and discover thc hidden places of this most valuable of all metals to the commerce of the world. We
seem to be on the eve of the prediction of Col. Wilkins. the president of the Bankers' Association of Canada, that British Columbia has more in the way of
natural resources than any of the other provinces, and
her future will outshine most of the others in spite of
their hiej- start."
THE GURKHAS
REGARDING the Gurkhas who are now on the
firing line with the Allies, a Hindu gave the
\vriter the following information the other day :
"Gurkhas not much good when firing at long range.
Not much good sailors. Not much good artillery
fighter or on horseback. Gurkhas alright in close
quarter. With knife in each hand cut him German's
jugular.    Goodnight."
The German soldiers will soon have an opportunity
of testing the fighting qualities of the Gurkhas. Writing some years ago on his trip to India and describing
his tiger hunt in the Ganges Delta the Crown Prince,
in alluding to the necessity of having enthusiastic
drivers said : "We thought it wise to bring several
Gurka policemen with us for this very purpose. The
Gurkhas hail from Nepal on the northeast frontier
of India, and iu type they resemble the inhabitants of!
Eastern Asia. They might almost he mistaken for
Japanese, and are the best soldiers the English possess
IB India. They are small, hut extraordinary wiry
and tough little people, who fear neither hell nor the
devil."

who are waging war against the devil, there are too
many people in the ranks e,f the "home guard."

ports a gallant feat performed by a Highlander
in the lighting at Soissons last week.
It appears that 125 Highlanders, who had been detailed to hold a bridge over the Aisne. were threaten-1
ed by an overwhelming force of Germans, who were
gradually approaching nearer the Highlanders. Their.
maxim gun had ceased lire all of its crew being killed,
when the Highlander got up from cover, lifted the
maxim em his back and amid a storm of German bullets, carried it, tripod and all, at a run across the bridge
to the far side.
There he put the gun down, and the maxim being
still charged, opened a hail of bullets upon the advancing Germans who wavered and then broke and fled to
cover, leaving scores of dead behind.
At this moment the Highlander himself was killed,
but he had checked the German advance, the liritish
reinforcements arriving, the Germans abandoned the
attempt to capture thc bridge. Afterward it was found
that the Highlander's body had 30 wounds.
Never was greater bravery shown on thc field of
battle. This Celtic Horatius died a glorious death.
What a real, big, Highland fighting man be was!
Such men do not need a battle as a setting for the
performance of deeds of bravery and endurance. Un-

The Greatness of
Britain Today
In Si. David's Presbyterian Church
Ihe minister, Kev. J. K. Kobertson,
recently preached ��� sermon <m tne
above siiiije-i-i, taking tor text, Proverbs  14.14,   -|<inlii( sin--, is.iit,th a
nalieeii ' Hi- laid in part-
Tins text ii a proverb, and a pro-
vi-rli lias value unly in io lai as il
expresses ilu- conviction ami the cone-
science 'ei a people. 'I Iiis proverb
was believed by tbe people en larael.
li was believed by their patriarch!
and prophets, judges and kiun-.
psalmists ami lainta, li was believed
ill  tiinc-s  ul  war  as   will   as  in   times
ui peace, in times eef adversity, ih--
u-at and disaster, as well a-, in times
ni prosperity, conquest and triumph.
11 was believed in the dark age ,,i
exile as well as in tin- golden age of
power.
Ami we also believe ihis proverb
teulay. We believe it whether in
peace or in war; whether emr enemies
an- advancing ur retiring on the haith-
line. We believe thai in righteousness Britain is mure highly exalted
tutlay than ever before���not because
sin- has won any great battle, not
merely because she has swept the
universal seas free ii"in danger, lint
rather because she has staked the
life "i the empire "ii a queition ��� ��� t
righteousness.
She has ne.ne tu war nut fur the
sake of conquest Inn fur conscience
sake; in.I fur the .sake uf inure laml
for herself, but lur llu- sake uf more
liberty feir others; not fur the take
eef proving tin- might e.f the strung
hut uf vindicating lhe right uf the
weak; nol in lln- spirit ul lelfishness
hut uf sacrifice. 'I'he righteousness
nf mir cause at present exalts our
empire to a greatness that is grand.
In what then docs this righteousness consist? First, we see it in a
splendid patriotism. Patriotism is one
ul the highest virtues. Sturrs says.
"I,uve of country is one uf the luiti-
e��t virtues." Shakespeare says; "I
do love my country with a respect
mure tender, mure Imly anil profound
than mine uwn life," De Tliun says:
"After what I owe to God, nothing
shemlil be mure dear ur inure sacred
than the luve anil respect 1 owe tu my
country." And Tennyson says: "Luve
thou thy land with hive far brought
from out the storied past." If we
look feer a religious sanction of this
virtue, we have but to refer to Israel's luve of their holy land anil to
the pasionate hive of Christ as Ile
wept over Jerusalem. We Admire
patriotism wherever it is genuine,
whether in France, Belgium or in
Germany. We admire it in friend
and foe.
Yet Hritish patriotism is more
righteous than that of most other
nations. Jt is one thing to develop
a strong loyalty among members of a
household who are akin in blood, but
it is quite another thing to develop
loyalty among the adopted children
who are of an alien race or blood.
Germany In spite of her strung patriotism in her own family has failed
to develop loyalty among her adopted)
children of Alsace and Lorraine.
Austria Hungary has not developed
patriotism aiming the adopted people
of Bosnia and Herzegovina, while
thousands of slavs within her borders
are filled with revolt. But the patriotism manifested today throughout
the British Empire is the finest yet
seen in the hustory of the wurlil. Nol
only all her own children of her uwn
blood, but all her adopted children���
the French people in Camilla, tlie
Dutch people in South Africa, the
Indian people of British India, all
came with one heart and voice full
of expressions of loyally and luve,
offering lltier lives for the sake of
the Empire.
Why is this? Because Britain is
such a good mother. She does not
make her children slaves, but free.
She does nut rule with mailed fist
bill with the gloved hand. She does
mil crush, but exalts���nor despise
but honors all the children of nations
adopted into her royal family. Britain was never so great as she i-
today  in loyalty and  patriotism,
Secondly, W'e sec it ill her freedom. Tlle real secret uf liritish patriotism is tu be found iii ihe freedom
of hcr subjects, Britons never shall
be slaves is not a mere vaiml "I
pride, bill  a  real  vuice eif conscience.
It is a matter eif a religious life: "Yc
shall know the truth anil llie truth
shall make you free." Cooper says:
"Ile is tlle freeman whom tlle truth
makes free and all are slaves beside." Spring says; "Where llu- bible
forms public opinion a nation must
be free." Jefferson has said: "Freedom of religion, freedom of the press,
freedom of tlle person, these are the
principles that have guided our steps."
Kings-ley says: "There are two freedoms, the false, where a man is free
to do what he likes; the true, where
a man is free to do as he ought."
And Parker says of freedom: "A-
government of all the people, by all
the people, for all the people���nf
course a government of the principles
of eternal justice, the unchanging
law of God." Such British freedom
long ago won the loyalty of the
French in Canada, more recently the
love of British India, and but yesterday that of the Boers in- Africa. The
new freedom of self government for
Ireland brings the enthusiasm of loyalty from the Irish and freedom from
compulsory military service is the inspiration of loyalty for the socialist
and labor classes of Britain. And the
freedom of the nations within, the
empire is the secret of that passionate patriotism which so greatly exalts
Britain today.
Thirdly. Britain is highly exalted
today hy reason- of her high honor.
Sir Edward Grey's words of lumen
are the true expressions of the empire's sense of honor. Speaking of
tlu bonnr of friendship with France,
we recall his memorable words, "Wc
have had fur many years a long
Standing   friendship   with   France.   I

Dehneeshun o'
Schule  Trustees  wi'  their latest
Patriotism
Weel frecns>, the auld sayin' "It's
an1 ill win' that blaws naebody guid,"
has been very muciVle iu evidence the
past week. Anither auld saw, "All's
fair in love an' war" wud seem tae be
very applicable tae a certain public
body in the city o' Vancoover,
It's a peculiar situashon that the
average Vancoover business man
canna tak advantage o' in semie wey
nr (he ither, but the incident I'm
gaun tae tak nienshun ee'. it wud seem
tae me, is jist gaun a wee bitty owre
the score.
Them ee' yae that keep nn readin'
thc paper efter yae hae digested the
war news, wud maybe notice a paragraph wherein it was stated that at
a 'meetin' o' thc Schule Trustees in
Vancoover they decided tae award
the coal contract fur the schules tae
a firm whose tender was met the
lowest, on the grun' that tac give the
lowest the contract wud be helpin'
nor enemy, whose friends it was stated, were heavily interested in the
mine in  questyin���the "Jingle Pot."
We're a very patriotic people oot
here in Hritish Columby���sometimes.
When it comet lae singin' "God save
the King" and the "Maple Leaf Forever" there's naebody could baud a
cautl'le tae us in oor display o' enthusiasm for Britain an' a' things
Hritish. It disna muckle maitter that
we hae a Cbineyman doon in the kitchen, anither yin in the gairden, the
while a white man an' woman.���British at that���are maybe wunnerin'
where they're gaun tae get the next
bite. We're the maist patriotic people in tbe whole Hritish Hempire���
when  it  comes tae shoutin'.
There's naethin' tae be gained by
hcin' patriotic when a wheen common workin' men are fechtin' for the
richt tae weirk under eondeeshuns
that'll ensure their lives bein' taken
care o\ There's nae glory in that
an' it's no' very likely yaell get honorable nienshun in the newspapers.
I dinna want tae forget either o'
that magnificent sum the citizens o'
Vancoover piled up for thc dependents o' the seedgers that hae went
awa tae fecht oor battles across the
sea���at the same time it wis oor duty,
whither yae ca' it patriotism or no'.
Hooever I'm gettin' a wee bitty
awa frae my subject���although I'm
sare: tempted tae gee on an' gie some
o' tiie vancoover citizens, parteecu-
larly them that forget a' aboot their
patriotism at ither times when they
see a chance o' skiunin' a dollar eer

aiding them tae resume work at the
colliery. The terms o'. settlement
were sae satisfactory that the miners'
agent at that time took occasion tae
compliment the mine management for
the generous way in which they had
been met.
Onybody that has followed the
late strike owre in the Island wud
remark tae themsers that we were
certainly a very patriotic community
���especially if they happened tae see
the Chinese miners that were imported tae tak up  the  Britishers jobs.
Durin' the coorse o1 the strike the
government press o' the city took up
a very strong attitude in denouncin'
the miners' organization, an' were
parteecularly anxious tae show it as
bein' a foreign body that wis usin'
the miners feir their ain ends.
Xoo I dinna want lae gae intae
the why's an' wherefores o' the
strike���the fact that the miners were
workin' under eondeeshuns opposed
tae the government's ain coal minin'
laws wild be sufficient vindicashun
as tae its necessity.
In the coorse o' the upbuildin' o'
the province ��� raither should 1 say
the city o' Vancoover���there iiae been
times when "the enemy" has come
in very haundy, especially when he
brocht the necessary kudos along tae
mak rich men where there were poor
afore. I wunner hoo mony transactions were uncompleted because the
buyer happened tae nienshun he wis
frae the  fatherland.
Noo I honestly believe the schule
trustees o' Vancoover thocht they
were actin' in a patriotic mainncr.
It's a sma' maitter that the collieries that got the contract hae been
busy fechtin' the finest body o' men
that ever came intae the province���
English, Scotch and Welsh miners
who, while they maybe hinna distinguished themsels on a battlefield, yet
hae ca'd forth peals o' admirashun for
their heroism at times when oor
brathe has been a'most taken awa wi'
some terrible minin' disaster.
The owners o! the mines dinna mak
ony bones abeeeit their patriotism.
They were oot tae bale thc men an'
ony wey they could dae it seemed
fair enough tae  them.
The same men are very heavily
interested in various speculations in
"foreign" countries themsels. These
same gentlemen hae jist about mortgagee! lhe Whole ei' Canady tae help
them build a railway. These same
gentlemen practically compelled the
city o' Vancoover, at the pint o' the

wis a sma' feat tae them, an' cspe'i-i-

Xoo Ihe wey I reason il ool is this.

���Worker will his boss naturally nsc.
Xever for JJ meenit wud he be tempted tae ast the boss where he got

nae  consequence.
The "Jingle Pot" acted in a humanitarian speerit in grantin1' the men's
demands, an' arc tae lie commended
by every workin' man���even if they
are subsidised by German capital.
As Burns says, "tiie Scotch bluid
biups in a' my veins," but I'm hanged
if 1 wud tolerate ony form o' patriotism that wud let ony countryman o'
mine use it as an excuse for pttttin'
wan <rver on rat.
N'aw. naw gentlemen o' the Vancouver schule board, yae hae anither
guess comin' on the patriotic cry.
It's no' when we're at war wi'
eichty per cent, o' the warriors work-
in' men that yem should mak sic a
display & patriotism. We could dae
wi' a wee bitty mare o' it when we're
no' at war. Remember, tbe workin-
man's the best patriot yae hae. The

at onyrate���is the richt tae live, an'
he's gie often denied that even. In
his strivin' efter bread an' butter he's
nt)' very parteecti'lar wha peys him his

big a war tae tackle efter this yins

In the words o' the so-ca'd patriots���
remember the wives an' bairns o' the
British���miners.
Before fecnishin' I wud like tae
compliment the Sooth Vancoover
trustees for their display o' common
sense. They awarded tlle contract
for their supplies tae the Jingle Pot.
Tiie fact o' a member o' that body
bein' a workin' man himsel, he maybe
"blew the gaff" tae his fellie trustees.
The workin' men in the city should
tak a lesson an' see that at the forth-
coniin' eleckshuns they elect men
that'll bc able tae study the science
o' patriotism frae their pint o' view.

The Greatness of Britain Today
(Continued from page 3)
remember well when the late government made their agreement with
France, the warm and cordial feelings
resulting from the fact that these
two nations, who had had perpetual
differences in the past, had cleared
those differences away and became
friends. I remember saying at that
time that it seemed to Hie 'that some
divine influence had been at work to
produce the cordial atmosphere which
had made that result possible. But
how far that friendship entails obligations, let every man look Into his
own heart and his own feeling."
France believed iu that friendship so
implicitly that she. withdrew her battleships and left the whole north and
wesl coasls undefended. We in Canada realize the true meaning of such
a friendship, because by a similar
friendship  over three  thousand  miles
of international boundary line stands
unprotected yet absolutely safe in the
security of such friendship, And as
every Britisher leeoked ineto his own
heart and feeling, the response spontaneous ��� came that for Ihe sake of
friendship the empire would stand
true.
So alsei iu honor of her word.
Kations are as much uneler obliga-
tieni tee keep their word of honor as
individuals are. All nations have not
reached this standard. Britain has
mil always thus been highly exalted,
but in the Victuriau era, through
Queen and great Christian Statesmen,
we have reached it. A treaty with
Belgium in 1839, and renewed and ratified by the nations iu 1X70, was word
"f heeiinr surely no less honorable
because it is a small nation, That
was a word "f shame uttered by the
chancellor eif a greal Christian nation  when, een  lh,- 4th  of  August, he
said  in  thc   Reichstag:  "Gentlemen,
we are' now in a stae eef necessity anil
necessity knnwi 11*> law.    Our troops
have occupied Luxembourg ami perhaps are already em Belgian ioik
Gentlemen, thai is contrary tei the
dictates   "f  Internationa]  law.      W'e
were   compelled   tee  override   the  jusl
protest e,f ihe Luxembourg and Bel-
gian governments. The wrong���I
speak eupcnly���that we are committing we will endeavor to make good
as our military goal has been
reached." When Britain demanded
that thc word of heenor bc observed
with reference to those two little
states, we were answered that this
word of honor was a "mere scrap of
naiier," a mere weerd. "neutrality."
And when Britain replied that she
.would stand by her word of honor
at whatever cost, her enemies were
exasperated, but she stood highly exalted in righteousness before the
world.
Britain in her greatness today is
thus paying the cost of her friendship and her word of honor. With
her heart of suffering she is saying

the meaning of Schiller's words:

"Mine honor is my life, both grow-

life is done." She realizes tlle stern
reality eef what is at stake in this
world war. As Dr. Kelnian expresses,
"If we are broken, European civilization will fall back a thousand' years
and freedom and honor be only memories. We stand for these in future
as our fathers stood for them in the

"Tei be, ier not to be, that is the
question." Whether tbe work of
Completing the preliminary plans of
the Neirth Frater Mariner can be carried out in time for their submission
to the next session of tbe Federal
Legislature, and thereby demonstrate
that lhe municipalities interested are
in real downright earnest in obtaining
the assurance eef the Dominion government that tbe business e>f COD*
structineg one of the largest fresh
water harbors in the world will be
entered on next year, appears tei be
acutely exercising the minds of the
Harbor Cennmissioners.
The position at the present time is
a peculiar one. and has almost reached
the deadlock stage owing tei shortness
of funds caused by Burnaby's deflection fremi the scheme. It will be remembered that upon their appointment, the Harbor Commissioners
asked fe.r a guarantee of $30.(XX), to
enable thein te> carry eiut the preliminary surveys and obtain sufficient
data tn prepare plans of the scheme,
freim the four municipalities concern-
cd���Richmond, Point Grey. South
Vancouver and Burnaby���each paying a quarter of the amount requited I
eer $7,5000. Upon the matter bcirag ex-'
plained to them, the three first-named'
gave the necessary guarantee, and the
finance committee of the Burnaby
council made a recommendation to
that council that a bylaw should be
prepared for this purpeise. but after
a great deal of discussion the council
shelved tlle bylaw. Burnaby, therefore, dropped out of the scheme, so
far as contributing towards the preliminary cvxpenses was concerned,
which left the cennmissioners short of
their estimated expenditure by $7,500.
According tei the Xorth Fraser
Harbor Commissioners Act, however.
although neit bearing any share of the
expenses, Burnaby will reap its proportion of the profits accruing from
the work of the harbor, which is manifestly unfair. Section 16 of the act
reads:
"After providing for tlle ceist of
management nf all the properly which
the corporation owns, controls, or
manages under the preceding scctinns
and after providing for tbe cost of
weirks nr improvements authorized by
the corporation and' for the performance of the other duties imposed upon
the corporation, and feir capital
charges and' interest upnn money
borrowed1 by the corporation for improvements, and feir all other liabilities of the corporation, and for a
sinking fund tn pay off any indebtedness   Incurred   by   the   corporatieen.

any surplus profits shall be the prn-
perly 01 the municipalities of Rich-
ineuid. South Vancouver, Burnaby
and Point Grey, equally between
them, and shall be paid over by the
Corporation to the treasurers of these
municipalities."
It will thus be seen, that although
Burnaby has refused to pay anything
teiwards the preliminary expenses,
when the lime arrives for a distribution of prnfits, it will be quite within
its rights iu demanding its fourth
share, which must be paid over under
the provisions of the act. Another
thing is that, taking it for granted that
Burnaby was in line, the commis-
sieiners commenced the wnrk, and
have already completed nearly all the
observation*���including boring to ascertain the nature of the material
that would have to be dredged, and
the depth of water���along the Burnaby foreshore, the work there being
undertaken first, the parties working
down  stream.
Funds are now running short, and
with nothing coming from Burnaby,
the serious position presents itself
as to whether the plans can be completed. Outside work is practically
at a standstill, just when it was- going on so well, but the drawing of
the plans is still proceeding from the
data already obtained. But there is
much yet to be ascertained, such as
observations of tides, volume of water, and so on.
This is a matter that very seriously
affects Richmond; Point Grey and
South Vancouver, for with the harbor constructed on the N'orth Arm
of the Prater river, a wonderful impetus will bc given to those municipalities, and to the whole of the surrounding district generally, by the
establishment of industries along thc
banks of tbe river, where they can be
served with tbe facilities of eicean
transportation. Perhaps with a little
gentle pressure, the Burnaby Council
might be brought into line; or, perhaps, if thc council prove obdurate
proper representations to the people
of that municipality might bc the
means of Compelling them to come
up  to time.
It is a question that should be taken up in earnest by all the public
boilics iii the three municipalities, and
alsee by those of Burnaby. Much
might be accomplished if the various
councils, the boards of trade, and the
ratepayers' associations took the
question in hand, and we understand
that a movement It on foot towards
this end. Otherwise, it would seem
these three municipalities will have
tei also provide the remainder of the
money required, nr the scheme will
fall through���at any rate for the present.
The latter contingency must not be
thought of fnr a moment, fnr it
might be many years before the Dominion Government would' again take
the matter of the construction of a
harbor on the Xorth Arm in band.
It would be one of the greatest setbacks that ceiuld befall the district,
for the argument of those opposed
tn the scheme, as well as of the Federal Government would be that tbe
people here bad so little confidence or
interest in the development of a harbor on the North Arm that it was
not worth  considering.
One way eeut eef the difficulty would
be for the three municipalities���Richmond. Point Grey and South Vancouver���to finance the whole of the preliminary   work   which  weiuld  be  only
adding another $2.5000 each at   tbe
most to what tliey have already provided, and then to apply feer an amendment tee the act so as tei make
the contribution thai ihould have
been paid by llurnaby. with full interest, a tirst charge een the profit! that
would accrue to the municipality, feer,
from the nature of the scheme, Burnaby cannot be lefl enit eif it altogether, especially now that thc data
there  has  been   prepared.     The  either
municipalities  would, thus, obtain a
refund,   with  interest,  of  their  CXCCM
contribution.
Burnaby's objection appears tei have
.���iHm'H from the fact tbat the com-
mlitioneri could nol give- them a
guarantee thai the- depth of the channel pail thai territory wouhl be forty feet. That, however, was Impossible, as thc dredging is expected to
be ilone by the Dominion Government, as is the case witb all the other
large harbors In Canada. The excavation of many of these' channels
has only been accomplished by vast
expenditure of money, as they have
had tn bc made by blasting solid rock
whereas lhe whole of the North Arm
can be deepened by simple suction
dredging, which will bc a very small
cost in  comparison  with  the others.
Another scheme in connection with
thc North .Arm, which is being urged
by some eif the industries along the
banks, is to endeavor to induce the
Dominion Government to dredge a
thirty-foot deep channel from Eburne
to the New Westminster   boundary,
to give access to these districts by
ocean shipping, by way of the South
Arm. they contending that this Would
give them sea transportation until
the mouth of the North Arm is
opened.
SIX   REASONS
WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF
CREOSOTED WOOD
BLOCK PAVEMENTS
ITS DURABILITY���Does not crumble or pulverize under the densest traffic; second only to granite
blocks
ITS EASE OP REPAIR���No difficulty being experienced in removing and replacing the blocks; no
expensive plant or skilled workmen required.
ITS SANITARY QUALITIES���Creosote being a
highly antiseptic and waterproofing material instantly destroys all germs, prevents the absorption of
street filth and consequent decay.
ITS NOISELESSNESS���The rattle and bang of
vehicles passing over its smooth surface absorbed
and muffled till the quiet of the dii< load is obtained.
ITS DUSTLESSNESS���Does not pulverize; the
heaviest traffic only pounding down the wood fibres
to offer the greater resistance.
TTS CLEANLINESS���Having a smooth surface and
being waterprooi it does not differ in this respect
from asphalt.
We manufacture blocks of the highest possible
standard, the verv best materials only being used and
in the DOMINION WOOD BLOCKS we believe
we produce an article that 5ias no equal.
