Ratepayers of South Vancouver and Point Grey and Vancouver
Will Meet Tuesday Night, June 30, to Discuss the Question of
Amalgamating The Three Corporations into a Greater Vancouver
Joked at, Slighted and Lied to by the
Provincial Government, Property Owners can
Stand it No Longer and Will Join Forces
And Demand whether this Country is Run
By the People or by One Little Man.    For
Years the 250,000 people in Vancouver,
South Vancouver and Point Grey have not
Had Any Say Whatsoever in the Handling
Of the Affairs of Vital Interest to them���
Is this 1214 or 1914, ask Many Property
Vou remember away back in iln
Thirteenth   Century   how   tin-   ii'eblcs
,.f England began t.> insurer, ami
how they approached King Jeelm and
.-aid tn him: "Jeihn, ye.u're a talis
alarm and a fakir. W'e are lln- people and we must be respected. Yuu
give us a say in the running nf the
affairs nf .lei- country 'ir we'll yank
that crowi i' : off your head and
beat  yuur brains  nut  with  it."
If you dn. yuu will alsn bear in
mind how John gut off his hjgh
heerse and said: "Buys, let us reasun
li��r, -U- yuu must have a say
in lliese things, well, 1 guess wc can
arrange it some way. I'll tell you
what I'll do. You let me stay king
;ind I'll sign any darned proposition
ynu want to put up to me."
See John  signed the  Great Charter.
A somewhat similar condition of
affairs may be found today in British Columbia. The king is one named
Bnwser. The nobles are the property owners of Vancouver and the
neighboring municipalities. Fur years
they have had many grievances
against the great king. The king will
not reason with thc nobles. The
people want legislation which will
permit of the forming, ot a Greater
Vancouver. The king^ doesn't want
1.. M/this  thing ct.rned out.
But Bowser will sign the Great
Charter, ju^t like King Jnhn did, nr
he will have his crown pulled off his
head and the political brains of himself and his party will be dashed out.
Tuesday. June 30, at 8 p.m., at
l'ender Hall, alt the property owner,. Of South Vancouver, Point Grey
ind Vancouver are invited to attend
a mass meeting, when Mr. Bowser's
objections to granting necessary
legislation for the forming of a
���Greater Vancouver will be discussed.
The  mceltng  will  bc  non-partisan.
Mr. Robert McBride, a Conservative of the old school, is among the
men who are calling the meeting,
and the principal speakers will be
irom  all  parties and all religions.
If it is found at this meeting that
there is  a  general feeling of uneasi-
ih--  regarding  the  treatment afforded the municipalities by the Bowser
Ceeiverument.  Ihen  hi j!<  nut  mr  trouble.
Lite grievances v. iiicl. tlie property
owners uf Greater Vancuuver arc at

big issue at the next provincial elec-
Sn far. lhe Liberal party in British
Columbia have nothing in their platform calling fur llle natural amalga-1
illation with Vancuuver nf Point
Grey and Snuth Vancouver. Nor
has  any  other party.
At the- meeting Tuesday night, an
absolutely independent expression of
opinion will be had on this most important matter, and the property
nwners will frame their course accordingly.
Mayor Baxter has been invited tn
attend. Ex-reeve Howe of Point
Grey has been asked to be presenl,
also Reeve Kerr of Snuth Vancouver, and with these men. invitations
have been extended tu all the public-
officials throughout the municipalities   interested.
This will be a meeting of insurgents. Trouble will follow it. The
meeting will be exciting. Be present. Demand your rights, for this
is the Twentieth Century, and the
belief is that British Columbia
s-hould bc governed by the people
for the people���not by King Bowier
fnr the Bowser satellites.

I-'eer twee years the Russian Labor
Press has been successful in holdlttg
the field in spite of Indescribable persecutions' The "responsible editor"
of a St. Petersburg labor party has
recently appeared in four fictions.
The court came tee the conclusion,
however, that thc actual editor was
not identical with the editor given in
the publication as responsible editor,
and ordered that the identity of the
actual editor bc ascertained upun
which he should be prosecuted
along with the responsible editor.
A press act is now being discussed
in the Duma, which may einly be described as an exceptive law against
the labeir press. A certain paragraph
of this law stipulates that a grammar
school education and certain certificates are necessary to those who
would become editors. Further a dc-
posit of 31)00 rubcls will he enforced
for thc guaranteeing of payment of
any fine which might he inflicted.

"One of the last things he had said
on leaving Ottawa was the expression of a hope that the government

be reserved for the generations to

to point out tbat we, at the present

had gone before, and that we in turn
should show the same foresight, if

WITH tlie shipment from a South Vancouver fac-
torv the works of tlie Dominion Creosoting
Company on the North Ann���of a consignment of
creosoted railroad ties to lie used in the construction
of some two hundred miles of an Indian railroad, a
faint indication may be gathered of the tremendous
possibilities   in   store   for  the  industries  of  British
The Dominion of Canada, especially the Province
of liritish Columbia, is rich in natural resources. We
are told that we have immense iron deposits near to
the Pacific Coast. We have enormous coal areas.
If it is good business for the Indian Government to
buy liritish Columbia fir for railroad ties, it would
be equally as good business for the Far East to buy
steel rails manufactured in British Columbia.
The day is dawning when an immense trade will
spring up between the Province of British Columbia
and the Orient���a trade in the products from the
top and the bowels of the earth.
In the fostering and promotion of this trade there
is a need for statesmanship on the part of Canadian
public men. The time demands men of foresight and
broad outlook, big men with big imaginations. If
our stock of public men of big calibre in British Columbia were in anywise proportionate to the immensity of our natural resources, the future would be
safe. We have, however, the raw material in both
lines, and all the forces of the worltl are going to be
brought to bear to develop them.
MR. H. H. STEVENS, Ml P., lias taken a new
stand on the Oriental question. He was an
ardent advocate of total exclusion of all Orientals
during the election of 1911. Since he was sent to
Parliament, he devoted all his spare moments, while
in the East, to addressing Canadian clubs and societies, presenting at all times an argument for a white
In British Columbia at the last election all the
Liberals were wiped out because they dared to approve of the treaty made with Japan covering Japanese immigration. Mr. Stevens, among others,
branded this treaty as a monstrous act on tlie part
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, whereby the Liberals sold out
white citizenship in this province.
Up to the last minute, Mr. Stevens pounded away
for a white British Columbia. But at the juncture,
when the man might have made the name of H, H.
Stevens stand out in Canadian history for all time,
the usual happened. Mr. Stevens, to put it in a vulgar way, flopped over.
Now hf wants to extend to China and the Indian
Empire the privileges afforded the Japanese in the
treaty made with them upon the sanction of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
Mr. Stevens gives as his reason that "it is the
price of Empire."
Well, it's a pretty big price to pay to be forced to
take to our bosoms tlie black fellows on hoard the
Komagata Mam, the Chinese hoards, and. in fact,
all comers from the Far East.
II a->v UR great purpose should not be mere winning.
\J but seeing to it that we have the best cause.
I am not indifferent to success, but still success is not
the main object. Our obligation is to fight for truth
and justice as God gives us to see truth and justice.
And truth and justice will prevail."
Such was Sir Wilfrid Laurier's characteristic and
meaningful message to Liberalism given in the Commons chamber on May 28th. The happy occasion
was the tangible recognition by his followers iu Parliament of his completion of forty years of continuous
membership in the Commons. It is just two score
years since Sir Wilfrid entered the Commons and
just fifty years since he graduated from the Law
Faculty of McGill and made his first public address,
His first speech in the House was made on March
30th, 1874, in seconding the AddreM in reply to the
Speech from the Throne at the opening of the new
Parliament. Today in point of length of service, and
in point of experience and ripeness of judgment and
statecraft, he stands alone, not only as the man who
was Canada's Premier for fifteen years, and is now
the Leader of Canada's loyal Opposition, but as
the Father of Canada's Parliament.
A half century ago, in delivering the Convocation
address of his class at McGill���Iiis first recorded public utterance���he gave expression to the essential
principles which have animated his whole public-
career. The work of the maker and of the student
of law, he said, is "to cause justice to reign." Seven
years afterwards, in 1871, as a rising young barrister
of Arthabaskaville, he was elected to the Quebec Legislature by a majority of one thousand. Three years
later, he entered the higher arena of Federal politics,
wenty-six years ago, or sixteen years after entering
Parliament, he was chosen leader of the Libera!
party, when Hon. Edward Blake laid down the mantle and recommended the brilliant young lieutenant
from Quebec as his successor.
it was fitting that in commemoration of such a
record, another mark of the esteem and affection of
Liberals should be given to the Nestor of Parliament,
to the greatest of Canadians, to the Grand Old Man.
still leading in the age-long fight "to cause justice
to reign." To Sir Wilfrid was presented a gold watch
and chain���"the best that science could devise or
money buy"���while to Lady Laurier, his helpmeet
through forty-six years of happy wedded life, was
presented a purse of gold.
The noble record of the forty years of Sir Wilfrid's
career in the Commons is, alike with tlie high-minded
message contained in his moving acknowledgment of
"this new act of kindness and mark of affection," an
inspiration and a pride to Liberalism. Here are forty
years of consistent and unwavering battle for the
rights of Democracy, for constitutional liberty, for
equal rights and for economic justice for all classes;
forty years of steady advocacy of all the rights of
autonomous government, of self-reliant Canadianism
and the upholding of British traditions, and forty
years of the precept and practice of the best ideals and
principles of Liberalism���and at the end, the same
high note of courage and optimism. "I have endeavored," he said, "to meet success without elation, and
reverse without discouragement."
Of Sir Wilfrid it may be truly said, that the grace
and vigor of his oratory, the integrity of his personal
character, his rare combination of tact and sagacity,
the kindliness and chivalry of his nature, the courage
and strength of his leadership have through all the
years commanded in steadily increasing measure the
esteem and the affection not only of his followers but
of all Canadians and the whole Britisli people.
"Whether it be twenty years, or ten, or five," he
said, in concluding his acknowledgment of the gifts of
his followers to himself and to Lady Laurier, "whatever may be the length of my time is in the hands of
God. But so long as God spare-i me, I shall continue
to give my best, however poor that may be, to the
service of these principles which we all hold so dear."
Liberalism has a leader to he proud of, anil to
follow gladly, with sure confidence and unwavering
loyalty���a leader to fight for and a leader to win for.

Now, why shouldn't the Hon. Joe be given a chance

Politicians of the stamp of Mr. Martin are as

Nature has worked out the whole order of things
for us. We have the gulls who fly over the harbor
and pounce upon the flotsam and devour it, thus
rendering a service to humanity by making conditions more sanitary. We have in medicine certain
germs, which, when introduced into the system of a
man who is harrassed by disease, devour the disease

of nature's method of legislating. A dog has fleas
and they are good for him���so Mark Twain said���

HE Calgary papers continue to manifest soreness against the papers of Eastern Canada for
their attitude  as Doubting Thomases in  regard  to
"Calgary oil."
"Perhaps nothing in the history of Canada," says
the Calgary News, "if oil continues to flow in the
Calgary district in commercial quantities���which all
expert authorities vouch for���means quite as much
to this country as the strike which was made here."
And yet, the Calgary paper goes on to complain
leading papers in Toronto "think so little of its importance, or have been influenced in some way, that
the most auspicious announcement that has ever come
out of Western Canada is passed over as if it were
but an every-day occurrence."
To which the Toronto Star makes reply that "the
attitude of the press and people of Ontario towards
the Calgary oil boom may be described as one of hopeful expectancy. It is hoped that there will be plenty
of oil, because there is little doubt that there will be
plenty of boom."
The Toronto paper is quite right about that.
In this country no discovery i.s made, whether in
the West or the East, that is attended by bashful
understatement of the prospects.
IX the exercise of their undoubted rights tin- Social
Social Democratic part of Cobalt recently passed
an anti-militaristic resolution, advising the workers
not to join a volunteer regiment which is being formed
in that district. A copy of the resolution was forwarded to Col. Hughes, Dominion Minister of Militia.
Here is his reply, which ought to be read by all Canadians, as it affords an admirable insight into the
constitution of the head of our militia department:
"Sir���A copy of your manifesto attached to letter
from you, has reached here. There is nothing new
in the manifesto. It is full of the usual slop and the
silly vaporings of minds ifl-informed in the problem
tti human government.
"The idea of an institution, whose practises are
by men regarded as those of the thug, the assassin.
the midnight murderer, the hedge fence artist, the
dynamiter, die persecutor of innocent women and
children, the destroyer oi homes and business industries, talking of 'humanity,' and 'profess,' and deploring bloodshed,' would be laughable, were it not so
"The whole resolution stamps your society as dangerous to the best interests of humanity in general,
and detrimental to any advantage whatever to your
own organization.
"YOl'i talk of 'civil war.' What, pray, do you indulge in, in your attempt to thwart the even trend
of the business of the country if not in miniature
civil war? What knowledge have you of human government, or anything else, for that matter, that would
justify anyone in paying the slightest attention to
anything you might say in this regard ?
"However, 'while the lamp holds out to burn,' etc.,
so I have such faith in humanity, unless it lias fallen
too low, and I hope you have not reached that sphere,
is to justify the hope that if you were to honestly
study the principles underlying my militia and cadet
ideas you would turn from your past records and
adopt the only policy that ever yet produced, or will
produce, a proper system of human government,
government by the people, through the people and
for the people, and not a government by cliques, rings
and organizers such as yours and others equally dangerous to humanity.
"Indeed, I feel satisfied, unless you are too low
and case hardened, too depraved, that you could be
greatly benefited by joining the militia and subjecting yourself to the essential principles of learning to
obey and also of learning to command. You would
then be a better workman, but perhaps you are merely
a walking boss, living on the labor of other men.
"However,  without your endorsement,  there will
be a splendid regiment iu the old Temiskaiuing district, and law and order and human progress will continue when you have departed and are forgotten."
"Faithfully yours,
(Signed) "SAM HUGHES."

military carriage made him a conspicuous figure in
South Vancouver public life, has returned to the East
to take an important position with the Bricklayers'"
and  Stone Masons'  Union  in the city of Toronto.
lhe former fire chief was well known and very highly
regarded both in South Vancouver and the city of
Cranbrook, where lie had charge of the fire brigades.
Though a martinet while on duty, the chief always
left a trail of friends behind him. When it came to>
fighting a fire, no chief was ever cooler when in
action, and no chief was ever more valorous. While
in South Vancouver the chief introduced the jumping net in fire fighting, and though a rigid and stern
disciplinarian, promoted an esprit de corps among'
the men which is today, in a large measure, evident.
His motto was "Do it now." The chief will be missed
in the West, but what is our loss is Toronto's gain.

I don. in an address before the Medical
Society e.f London, He maintained
I that the flat fibre.ns tonsil with each
crypt a bag of pus, ilie- typical tonsil
that causes -ore throat, was met common  in  children.
When   a   child   has   a   cold,   snores

teeth   were   enough   to   keep     up     a
chronic  pharyngitis,  which  "leads  to
hypertrophy of tin   lymphoid tissues
of  the   neck,"  to   enlarged   tonsils,  ill
other  words.
An operation i- advisable, according to Dr. I.avion, only when there
is a positive indication thai lhe lym-
pheeiel tissue is doing harm: when it
is certain that the disease is local
and not part of a general enlargement of the lymphoid tissues all over
tlie body; when it is certain that decayed teeth are nol the cause, and
that it is not due to a recent infection.
Speaking of the danger, Dr. Lay-
ton said that "no operation equally
small carries with it so many risks."
Among these he mentioned severe
hemorrhage, death under anaetheaia,
infections  hailing lie acute  di-.-a-e of

Mr. Latta dealt with the conditions in Saskatchewan, in comparison
with the conditions as they exist in

Mr. John Oliver dealt with the
provincial matters, stating thai
thousands of acres of land hail been
secured from the Provincial Government by fraud, connived at by the
government in evasion of the land
acts of the province. Ile also stated
that at the last session of the H'euse, .
an act was past whereby the lumber !
magnates had secured control of the
timber licences for the next forty
years, and instead of the government
owning thc timber, they were now a
silent partner to the lumbermen,
and instead eef thc government controlling the lumber industries, the
lumber industries were controlling
the government. In speaking of lhe

Ten parties Witness Drilling
���Hard     Time     Keeping
Crowds   From   Getting
About noon on Saturday, reports
became current on thc streets to the
effect that oil had been struck at the
Paterson wells at Pitt Meadows, and
several large parlies started immediately for the scene of operations.
Mr. W. 1. Paterson headed one party
going to Westminster in autos and
from Westminster to thc oil wells on
the Kort Langley boat which was
chartered for the occasion. Another
party of friends boarded the B. C.
Electric cars for Westminster and at
this point the Fraser Valley Ferry
No. 1 was pressed into service and
made away to the scene of oil drilling as fast as possible.
On the way up the river, several
small parties were passed coming
back who had already been out to the
well, and on arriving, about a dozen
small launches were lied lip, all having carried a capacity crowd to the
fields wini were eager to get infor-
matiiui al lirst hand regarding the
truth of the operations. At the well,
everyone vvas so excited at the outlook for oil lhat it was with considerable' difficulty lhat the men in
charge  kept  the  crowd   from  getting
hurt by some of the heavy machinery
used in the Paterson well for drilling.
There is no doubt of the existence
of oil at Pitt Meadows. There was
in the crowd not one single doubting Thomas���everyone could see the
gas coming up from the bottom of
the well. Everyone could smell oil
and gas and see a thin film of oil on
the surface of the drillings as it was
dumped from the baler each time it
was raised.
One of the party, a lady, got so excited that she became almost hysterical over the drillings and as a matter of fact, every one was more or
less excited. Even the many hard-
headed business men who had followed the crowd to the new oil field
were excited. That Vancouver will
soon be.blessed with a big oil field
was the consension of opinion of all
who took part in the trip last Saturday.
Samples of oil bearing sands have
been brought to town and a bucket
full can be seen at the office of the
Dominion Stock and Bond Corporation, Ltd., selling'agents, in the Winch
All to Alter 'Alta.' Say Postal
In a supplement ill tiie official
postal guide received just recently
from Ottawa by Postmaster Macpherson, is the following: "Representations having been made to the
Postmaster-general that the contraction 'Alta.' is repugnant to the people of Alberta, who consider that the
word 'Alberta' is not too long to be
used in full, thai it is significant and
euphonious and may become a trade
mark of great value in marketing the
products of the province, it has been
decided to discontinue the use of tlie
contraction 'Alta.' in the postal service and to recommend that letters
and other mail matter for the Province ol Alberta slinuld. wherever
pe ssible. bear the name of that province in full." There is no suggestion
that B. C. will not be accepted as the
official   mark   for   this   province.

things in   the  garden, old man?"
"Oh, all right," replied Tom; "but
thc beastly bugs, you know, are playing  thc  dickens  with  my  radishes!"
"Is that so?" remarked Hill, who
rather fancied himself as a gardener.
"Why don't you try salt? You put
some salt down, and you can take it

Tom didn't think much of the remedy, but abstained from passing comment until, some weeks later, the

J5fepr Best yte ^Preservet^
oty J. HaynesL
Two lads were talking at the back door of a big warehouse on South Street. Though they were quite unlike
in character, friendly relations had sprung up between
The older boy, aboul twelve years, stood leaning: on
his broom. He was a store sweeper. The other little
fellow, two years younger, was crouching on the doorsill,
"You mean to say you don't know how to pick a
pocket?" he said, darting a keen glance from his handsome but rather crafty black eyes. "I'll teach ye. I'm
just learning."
With that the small, quick-witted raacal proceeded
tei demonstrate how he coulel abstract thc "ther boy's
jackknife, Then, handing hack the knife, he continued:
"Ve wcre Rood to me lhat time ye let me hide in here
And I look nothin', hut I want to give ye Somethin1 f'>r
bein1 kind. I'll show ye how to get dogs that them rich
folks take out in the parks." He went on to enlarge upon
the great rewards offered In short, his generous. Impulsive heart had quite got away with his discretion, lo
anxious was hc to teach his new friend his accomplishments.    Hut  thc  larger boy  took  no notice.
"1 don't want to know how 1 would hate you if you
told me how to be bad." And he fell to work, sweeping
vigorously, Very shortly his dirt pile was ready to be
pushed out at thc duor, near which the other lad still
kept his place on the lower step, his face saddened, his
attitude that eif fatigue.
"Say, you feller," suddenly spoke the sweeper, "did
ever anybody teach you how to be good? I know something in that line that my sister is trying to teach nie.
1 ha'nt got no mother myself. I suppose you ha'nt got
none, either."
Tlie sequel of this narrative may. perhaps,^ie written
ten years from now. The storekeeper, a benevolent old
man, had been listening to the conversation, and hc set
himself to the rescue of at least one soul.
But the mighty truth here spoken is evident in every
boy's life, every day, somewhere. Ignorant in that which
is evil, wise in that which is good���that is the best life
preserver that was ever clasped about a little fellow.
The sweeper said he did not want to know how to
become a successful thief. And any boy who steadfastly
closes his ears to the lesson of how to go wrong safely
is well nigh safe himself as long as hc lives.
Then again, were ever more pathetic words spoken
than those that fell from the lips of the sweeper: How
quickly came the thought to him that possibly nobody-
had ever 1 ��� >1 tl this child of the street the right way. but
that he himself knew and could hand over a lot of this
golden knowledge He could not pick a pocket. His
friend  could  met  sweep and  earn  honest  bread

are derived from the interest charged

Take thc case of a person borrowing fifty iledlars. He gives his note
(with two backers I for fifty dollars.
He receives forty-seven dollars in
cash. He then pays a dollar a week
for fitfy weeks, thus cancelling the
debt. This matter of paying by thc
week is a very important one. for it
is by refusing such payments on ac-
ceiunt ol principal and insisting upon
the full repayment eef a loan in one
sum that the loan sharks are enabled to keep their grip on their victims.
It is clear from what has gone
befeire that the corporation's financial
operations will consist of lending out
its capita! stock at 6 per cent., of
lending out each week the 2 per
cent, of its teital original loans as
these are repaid weekly, and Of lending out the amount of interest deducted  in  advance upon  each loan.

The Morris Plan bank can be installed at a very small cost, and it
can be operated economically, e.n tht
e-ne hand because it is without variqi
departments and confines its operations to one line of business, a ofl
pn the other hand because'the nature
of the w.erk does not call for the services of large salaried executives anj
other   highly   paid   officials.
With, no necessity for carrying
large rt serves of cash and with tht
right to redeem its investment certificates at thirty days' notice, tht
lorpenation can adjust perfectly to
thr conditions of the day the amounl
ol money it wishes to have on hani

may hc noticed a return of optimism
and confidence in the future eif the
hist residential community on tlle

Sireet is being followed by tlle laying of a bitulithic pavement on Hod-

future. The Tyne Sireet property
owners arc al; > progressives, in the
best   sense of the word.
Despite j drenching downpour, a
large number if Tyne Street property owners met in Nicholson's
store mi Wednesday evening to discuss the paving project. Reeve Kerr
was present and Councillor Rutledge
presided. Mr. W. J. Allan submitted
a list of the property owners, procured from the assessor's office, together with information regarding
the cost of various paving materials.
If the street was paved twenty-four
feet wide, as proposed, he stated, the
cost against each lot with an average
pavement, would be $77.44, which,
with the interest and sinking fund
charges, would bc spread over fifteen  years.
Tyne     Street     runs     south     from
Kingsway lo River Road, and is
about a mile and a half long. Roughly, it was figured, the ceist would be
$7(M��X). Asked whether the council
could finance the work this year,

advised the property owners to get

In view of the fact that Tyne

runs about $1.35 a square yard. "My
policy is one of througii paved
streets," stated the reeve, "and in
the course of a few years I hope to
see the municipality checkerboarded."

There was great grief among the
younger generation em Main Street
thi- week, when the news was given
out eif the departure from this earth
of Hilliken, the Shetland pony owned
hy Master George Pound, sou of the
ex-reeve. Billiken was a highly-bred
little fellow, and though possessed of
much Speed, was as gentle as a kitten. At an early age he went into
the newspaper business, and was for
a time identified with the circulation
department of the News-Advertiser.
He could pull circulation for a newspaper as well as bigger horses could
pull heavily loaded wagons. His la-t
connection with the newspaper business was during the first Vancouver
pageant, when Hilliken and his master escorted Princess Chinook. While
the details of Hilliken's death are nol
fully known, it is stated that the little
horse attended a lacrosse game last
Saturday, when he was suddenly
stricken with pains, and though
skilled physicians worked over him.
litlle could be done for him. Billiken
was a great believer in the future of
Soulh Vancouver, particularly Main
Sireet. He was enthusiastic over the
paving of Main Street and had high
hopes of one day galloping over the
smooth blocks. In politics, though
identified for a long time with Conservatives, he was a staunch Liberal,
believing lhat the products of the
earth should be shared as equally as
possible between all  who  worked.
