C. N. R. Tunnel Entrance
Wanted for South Vancouver
Deputation From  Municipality   Interviews   Attorney-General at
Victoria���Points Urged in Favor of Proposition
The municipal delegation which interviewed Attorney-General at Victoria to advocate the claims of Se.uth
Vancouver for the proposed Canadian Northern Railway tunnel returned on Saturday. The delegation
included Mr. K. C. Hodgson, president of the Board of Trade; Councillor Stuart Campbell, Mr. H. Ii. \'..-
gel, and Mr. F. E. Ellieitt of the Board
of Trade.
The members of the deputation
placed before the Attorney-General
the various arguments in favor eif the
tunnel having its entrance in the
municipality. The Attorney-General
paid the utmost attention to the different points urged in support of the
South Vancouver proposition, and
promised to give them careful consideration. At the earliest opportunity he said, he would communicate with Sir Richard McBride, and
the members of the deputation could
rely upon South Vancouver's claims
in the matter receiving due weight.
On their return from Victoria several
members of the delegation expressed
themselves as confident that their interview wilh the Attorney-General
would bear good fruit. The Government's decision is expected tej be
known  at  an   early  date.
Among the chief arguments urged
by the delegation were that Smith
Vancouver wanted lhe tunnel entrance at the foot of Victoria drive on
the Neerth Arm of the Fraser. This
point is about thc centre of the North
Arm, and half a mile east of the
municipal bunkers. It was pointed
out that as the C, N. K. line from
Westminster (ee False Creek woulc
have to pass through Burnaby in any
case   there   should   be   no   opposition
[from that district tei the proposals of
South Vancouver, that the entrance to
thc long tunnel to the Creek head be
i placed  in  the latter municipality.
One important point put before the :
j Attorney-General   was   that   at     the
| present  time business firms in  South
I Vancouver   iln   not     enjoy     terminal
rates,   but   must  pay    extra     freight
|charges On goods shipped to lhe muni- :
cipality, the additiemal charges cover-'
ing   shipments   from     the     terminal i
point  of  Vancouver.    If a  station  is |
established  al  thc  new tunnel  mouth I
it would be possible for  South Vancouver  merchants  reasonably  to  ask |
for terminal rates to the municipality
and thus reduce the cost of handling
goods.
It  has  been  stated in  some  quar-
| ters   that   the  municipality  would   be;
asked  to contribute various amounts,]
| from $70,000 to $100,000, towards pay-
ling fnr a tunnel right-of-way for thei
i C.  X.  R..  but no proposition  of that
kind  has  been  made  officially to thc
[railway,   nor  has  it  been  authorized
by the municipality.    It has not been
discussed by the Council, and in any
case it woulil require the mandate of
the   ratepayers  of  South  Vancouver.
Arrested for Manslaughter
Samuel Crowley was arrested on
Monday charged with the manslaughter eef his son, (he Attorney-
General having ordered a committal.
This is a sequel to the verdict of "accidental death," returned by the Cormier's jury after the charge against
Mr. Crowley at the police court had
| been dismissed. Crowley was charged with killing his son by a kick.
The case is expected to come up
for triiil al the assizes.
Why School Bylaw
Should be Carried
VOTE FOR THE BY-LAWS
Ratepayers are asked to vote on Saturday for bylaws involving
a total expenditure of $1,305,000. All these bylaws have been thoroughly, if not exhaustively, considered at Council committee meetings.
They have been sufficiently long before the public to ensure adequate
knowledge of their purport.
The passing of these bylaws is not merely advisable from a
progressive standpoint. It is a vital necessity if South Vancouver
is to maintain its high position as a municipality in efficient government. It is of paramount importance if the municipality is to receive
proper attention, as an industrial and residential centre, in competition with other municipalities. South Vancouver cannot afford
to lag behind other municipalities in public improvements and civic
development.
Each of these Bylaws has been framed to meet the pressing demands of South Vancouver for the provision of a well-equipped
hospital, school board requirements, necessary fire protection, a
sufficient water supply and the development work of roads, sidewalks, bridges and culverts.
Should these bylaws be turned down, their rejection, in whole
or part, will be more or less disastrous to the prestige of South Vancouver as a progressive municipality. It will arrest the development, retard the improvements and seriously impair the position
and reputation of South Vancouver as both a business and residential centre. To local tradesmen the rejection of these bylaws will
mean the loss of increased prospective business. For laboring men
resident in the district it will undoubtedly curtail the prospects of
work within the municipality. The rejection of these bylaws will,
moreover, gravely impede the efficient discharge of urgent civic
obligations.
It remains for the ratepayers of South Vancouver to appreciate
on Saturday the necessity of the passing of these bylaws. They are
the masters of the situation. It is for them to decide for or against
the good government of the municipality.
The following are the bylaws which the ratepayers are asked to
ratify on Saturday :
Roads Bylaw���$575,000. of which $25,000 is for bridges and culverts. About $70,000 will be spent in each ward except Ward I, where
the appropriation is $80,000.
Sidewalks Bylaw���$30,000.
Waterworks Bylaw���$130,000.
Hospital Bylaws���$35,00 for the purchase of a site for a hospital,
its erection and equipment.
Fire Bylaw���$85,000 for the purchase of fire '.iall sites and
the erection of buildings. This bylaw provides for the installation
of a combined fire and police alarm system  .
School Bylaw���$450,000. This amount is $75,000 less than the
school board's estimated expenditure this year. The usual government grant is expected to make up the difference

Permits for Quarter Ending March 31, Total $691,457���Plans
of the New B. C. E. R. Sub-station
A- building permits are one eif the
most significant indication 'if a city's

A M. Veiling, municipal building in-
spector, Jti-t issued, reveals a very
satisfactory condition 'if Seiuth Vancouver's development. They promise feir the present year quite considerable activity in construction.
Taken in conjunction with the extensive proposed road and eether improvements provided i"r by the
money bylaws, work throughout the
municipality is lflcely tO be abundant for some months tn come.
IJuring   thc   three   numths   ending
March  31, permits  tei'the  number  of
648  were  issued   feir  buildings   valued

Tii,-   school  board  trustees  having
decided tee haw their offices separate
from   the   Municipal   Hall,   the   erec-
I tion   of   another    important     public
building in  Seeuth  Vancouver will be

estimated that at least $7,000 will be
expended on the proposed new school

impetus te, ilu- progress of the municipality.
Carline  Extension
A letter from the B. C. h. Railway
Company announcing its intention to
extend the single carline freem Earls
Road to Joyce Road was read at the
Council   meeting  on   Monday.
Among the conditions it is stipulated that the Council pave and maintain at their cost a certain width of
road adjoining the car line, and that
sufficient room be provided for a future  double   track.
The trustees of the School Board
have issued an urgent appeal for the
passing eef the School By-law which
tlu- ratepayers will vole upon mi Saturday. The by-law involves the sum
of $450,000, and that amount does nut
cover the estimated expenditure eif the
Board, as the difference of $75,000 is
expected to be made up by the government granl.
At lhe recent visit of the provincial inspector of schools of tin- <lis-
trict, he expressed himsslf a:, astonished at thc rapiel growth of the
schools ami commended ihe Board
on their proposal tee provide for the
inevitable increase e.f the school population eif the municipality.
That the constant growth eif the
population "f South Vancouver absolutely'necessitates the passing of the
School Ilylaw shouhl lie apparent to
the majority eef the ratepayers and
il is lo he hoped thai they will view
the matter in that light nn Saturday.
The sum of $55,000 is appropriated
iu lhe schedule of the by-law for new
school sites, while $47,000 is asked for,
for additions t" present sites. New
buildings to be erected are thc Sir
Alexander MacKcnzic school. $65,-
000; high school. $85,000: School
Board offices, $7,500; three two-
roomed   schools,    $7,5000;     manual
(raining school. $6,000. Aihlitieins
to the Richard McBride school, Walter   Mmierly   school  and   Sir   William
Van  Home Bchool will cost $50,000'
each,  while  additions   for    domestic
science classes, together with sundry
alteration  anil  repairs  are  estimated
at about $8,500.   Miscellaneous items
aggregate $48,000 and furniture and
equipment for new schools $20,500,
The total proposed expenditure is
exactly half-a-million deillars, including the government grant of $75,-
000. This makes an expenditure during the two years of 1912 and 1913
of $1,000,000,
In the appeal referred to. copies 'it
which are being advertised throughout thc district, it is stated that South
Vancouver is third in school population in B. C. "No bylaw passed���
no school buildings���therefore no
work,"  say  the  school  trustees.-
The following is a copy of the appeal to the ratepayers lo vote for the
School   bylaw  on   Saturday :
Come out on Saturday and use your
Franchise!
Vou can't afford to turn down the
School   Bylaw I
Why? Because your trustees have
thoroughly considered the question
and know���don't think���but know
that it is essential and imperative for
you  to vote the money.
Think! Your municipality is third
in school population in B. C. Victoria is only just ahead.
The Provincial Superintendent of
Education was astounded at the great
increase in South Vancouver school
requirements as he saw thenl last
week and complimented your board
on their foresight.
To spend money on education will
be the best investment you ever made,
you and your children will draw interest and compound interest on
your investment in years to come.
What better and nobler sacrifice
can you make than doing it for thc
future benefit of your children.

he would not allow them to come

he found that the difficulties, worries

troubles was to tear aside the veil
and enter the portals from which

GREATER VANCOUVER CHINOOK
SATURDAY, APRIL 12,  1913
Collingwood Parliament
The profcsedingi st the Collingwood  Parliament een 9aturday night
were very interesting. The llou-
was well Idled, many visitors being
present, including a number eif ladies
as it was anticipated that matters of
interest lo women would be discussed.
This anticipation was realised, f'er
three ladie- wh.i are associated with
the publication eif the new woman's
paper. "The Pioneer Woman." attended and urged the necessity of
legislation in thc interests of women.
Miss Lucy Dailey was the first
speaker, and she started by refuting
the statement which had been made
that women���with the exception of
a few "cranks" had shown no interest in (he movement for "Votes fir
Women." She pointed out that the
movement for Woman's Suffrage was
a very old movement indeed, and she
quoted a number of distinguished
men and women who had supported
it. Miss Dailey based her claim upon
legislation for women on the grounds
of justice, expediency and logic; she-
said that women wanted to make their
influence felt through proper legislative channels, and to guide development in the direction of proper town-
planning, the multiplication of playgrounds, a better food supply, and
other things which should tend to
the health and happiness of the people. On coming to Canada she had
been surprised and horrified to find
that the death rale among children
was higher than in the slums of the
Old Land, and she urged that had
women more power this evil with
many others we mid be mitigated.
Mrs. Fearn showed that the exclusion of women from political
power hail been the perpetuation of a
gross mistake���an idiotic decision
which had declared that a woman
was  not a  "person."
Mrs. Fearn proceeded to give a
long catalogue of women's grievances
under the laws eif British Columbia,
and several members of the House
afterwards admitted that they had no
idea that the laws eif British Columbia were apparently so unjust to women.
Miss Gutteridgc, who was the third
speaker, addressed herself chiefly lei
women's position���industrially. She
said that in a city like Vancouver
there were thousands of young women who were not living under a
parental roof, were not dependent
upon husbands or relatives, but had
to earn their own living. If they required decent menus they had to pay
as much as a man would pay. A
restaurant charges them no less for
meals because they were women. A
woman's clothes cost as much as did
those  for a  man, and she asks why,

under these conditions sheiuld ;i woman be paiel less for tin- work sin-
did when such work was equal to
that done by a man? In many departments "f industry il was said lhat
a man could not live on less than sixteen dollars a week, but women received wages as low as six eer eight
lollars a week, and low wages drove
many girls to a life of shame. She
pleaded for equality, comradeship between men and women, and claimed
for women a full recognition of their
humanity.
On the motion of the "Premier"
(Mr. Win. Morris) the ladies were
heartily thanked for their speeches
which won congratulations from
every   part   of   the   House.
Before the Parliament proceeded
to the "orders of the day" there was
a very pleasing little ceremony. The
Parliament was presented with a
handsome "mace." This had been
made by Mr. W. H. Kent, and silver
plated by Mr. Guy; it is a piece of
line art metal work and was seen to
be quite an ornament as it lay in
front of "Mr. Speaker." It will repose in a place of honor on the table
until perhaps some local Cromwell
will make history repeat itself and
cry "Take away that ..aiiblc!" The
House heartily thanked Messrs. Kent
and Guy for the gift.
Ministers had to answer a number
of questions, and at the close of the
session another shoal of questions
was poured upon the Ministry in such
profusion that the "Prime Minister"
declared it was evident that the
House thought that the present government was quite capable of giving
much   useful   information.
The debate on the "Speech from
the throne." was resumed, The
amendments moved were very slight
in character, it was agreed that a
special committee appointed to deal
with the question of pure food should
again go into that matter, but there
is little chance of that subject being adequately discussed this session.
The naval question occupied the
chief attention of the House. The
Minister for Militia and Defense
moved the following resolution :
Resolved���
That several of the most important foreign powers have adopted a
definite policy of rapidly increasing
their naval strength. ,
That this condition has compelled
lhe United Kingdom to concentrate
its naval forces in home waters, involving the withdrawal of ships from
(he outlying portions of the Empire.
That such withdrawal renders it
necessary that Canada should enter
actively upon a permanent policy of
naval defence,
That any measure of Canadian aid
to Imperial naval defence which this
House adopts should imply a permanent policy of participation by
ships owned, manned, and maintained by Canada, and comtemplating
construction as soon -as possible in
Canada to be ail adequate and satisfactory expression of the aspirations
of the Canadian people in regard to
naval defe,ice, and to be an assumption of her lair share in the maintenance of the naval strength of the Em-
j pire-
It is the opinion of this House that
measures should be taken at the present sessi- to give effect actively and
speedily to the permanent naval
policy embodied in the Naval Service Act passed in 1910, pursuant to
(he resolution unanimously approved
b'f this  House  in   March  1909.
Tills  House is further of the opinion   tha'   lo  increase  the  power  and
mobility   of   the   Imperial   Navy   by
the   addition   by   Canada,   under   the
above Act, of two fleet units  to be
stationed on the  Pacific and Atlantic-
Coasts of Canada respectively, is the
policy   best   calculated   to   afford   relief  to  the  United  Kingdom  in   respect to the burden of Imperial naval
defence, and to restore greater freedom   to  the  movements    of    British
squadrons  in  every sea, and  directly
promote  the  security  of the  Dominions,   and   that   the   Government    of
Canada  should  take  such    steps    as
shall  lead to  the accomplishment  of
this purpose as speedily as possible.
Mr.   Gerald     McGeer     introduced
this   resolution  in  a  speech  of  much
ability    and    which    was    frequently
punctuated by   "cheers."    He reviewed the history of the naval question
in   Canada  and  showed  that  at   one
time Parliament and the Country had
practically held the views which were
now advocated by Sir Wilfrid Laur-
ler and  his party.    The  Minister for
Militia  ridiculed  thc  idea  that   Great
Britain   was  face  to  face  with  such
an   "emergency"   as   made   immediate
monetary    assistance    from    Canada
necessary.    Hc said that Canada taking   upon   herself     the     burden     of
Strengthening the  Imperial Navy was
chiefly  valuable  for  its  moral  effect
upon the nations of the world, demonstrating lhat  the  env'irc was united anil linn.    Much more valuable as
a moral illustration of what the Empire   could   do,   even   in   outposts   dis-
| taut from lhe centre would lie the beginning of a truly Canadian navy protecting   Canada's   own     shores,     and
iever ready to render efficient service
j should need arise to the motherland.
lie   scornfully   repudiated     Ihe     idea
I that   men  wdio   took   this  view   were
| met truly and fervently patriotic with
the   true  kind  of  patriotism.     (Loud
cheers.)
The member for Delta moved, and
the member for Grand Forks seconded a rider to the resolution which
was virtually accepted by the Government. Thc Prime Minister, who
supported the original resolution declaring that his government had no
"jingo' proclivities,. but would welcome any efforts for the promotion
of the world's peace.
The rider to the resolution urged
lhat before a policy for increasing
armaments of war was put into operation the Imperial Government should
try and  arrange a  conference  of  the
gnat   powers   with  a   view   lee  a  general   curtailment   of   armament-.
Tin-  debate   from   lirst   He  last   was
very animated, it was adjourned ami
il is anticipated the proceeding on
Saturday   night   will   be   lively.
Members of ilu- House and visitors
an-  requested   to  be in  their  benches
at 8 o'clock, as it is rather anticipated (hat (wo or three distinguished
visitors  will  honor  the Collingwoeid
Parliament   by   their   presence.
Collingwood   and   District   Business
Men's Association
The Collingwood and District Business Men's Association will meet on
Thursday night a, the Collingwood
Institute, and it is to be hoped that
following up the very business-like
meeting last held that great progress
will he made in several matters tending to the development of the district.
Mr. VV. II. Kent has initiated what
promises te�� be almost a crusade for
postal delivery round Collingwood.
It is true that between Vancouver and
Collingwood and Central Park there
are patches of country not so thickly
populated as the district named, but,
as was pointed out at the last meeting of the association, it is rediculous
to talk, as some are talking about
Collingwood having to wail for a
postal delivery unlil (he whole of
South Vancouver is thickly populated enough to justify postal deliveries
being worked from the Vancouver
post office. It was suggested at the
last meeting of the association by Mr.
J. Francis Bursill that a postal delivery for Collingwood could be
worked from a sub-office at Collingwood East, and he declared' that the
population of Collingwood and district, thoroughly justified such a sub-
office being established.
In connection with this postal delivery scheme, it was urged that all
the houses in the district should be

With regard to the much-needed
improvements at the Collingwood
district car stations, Mr. Meichcr re-
Iported lhat he had been to the B C.
Kh-e'tric Railway and had asked when
Mr. Sperling and the management
could see a deputation e,n this subject. Mr. Fletcher said thai in the
absence e,f Mr. Sperling he had informed Mr. Armstrong that a petition
had been signed by nearly 2(X) people
at Collingwood Kast, and nearly 15(1
people in the neighborhood eif Earl's
Road asking for improvements at the
local railway stations. Mr. Armstrong had said that the company
was fully alive to the needs of the
district and that as it was unnecessary to send a delegation, a letter
would do.
It was agreed that the executive of
the association should draft a strong
letter to accompany the petitions,
and that if this letter did not meet
with a response within reasonable
time that it should certainly be followed up by a deputation to the company.
Mr. Hutton initiated a lively discussion as to how the association
could be made more useful to the
merchants and traders of the district. Mr. Kent pointed out that this
was in the merchants own hands,
that (hey should join the association,
attend the meetings and discuss the
mailers which affected their interests,
It is strongly urged that there
should be a good attendance next
Thursday night, when matters of importance will be discussed.
Gentlemen wishing to join the association should introduce themselves
to Mr. Fraser, Mr. Bailey, Mr. Kent
or other members of the association,
which it is hoped 'will soon embrace
all lhe business men of Collingwood
and district.

will likely be the cause of Si une l.air-
raising on the part of the cabinet

At the outset the Prime Minister
reported em the conference that had
taken place between representatives
-if the different parties. Aii arrangement had been arrived at whereby
the party in power would have
-eats; the opposition 20. and
cn ess-benches 14, making a total of
62 scat-. By the arrangement arrived
at the Prime Minister pointed <etit
that the party in power would be
provided with a good working majority, though il provided feer their
defeat in case the opposition ami
cross-benches should vote  solid.
After some discussion the report
was  adopted.
Tw.e new members (Liberal) wcre
introduced to the House anil were
given a warm welcome on taking
their seats. They both made their
maiden speeches during the course
uf   the   evening.
The Minister of Mines moved the
second reading of tin- Miners' Minimum Wage Hill. It was agreed to,
and tbe House resolved itself into
a Committee 'if the Whole to discuss
it- provisions. Thc Minister
Mines put up a strong defense of the
measure! and pointed eeut that though
the minimum wage was $3 it was
not to In- taken a- tlu  maximum.
Mi. McGeer win- was in the chair
ruled that discussion would proceed
on Clause 2 and thai Clause 1. tin-

Mr. H.'ll moved that tin- minimum

of the- clause   lie   -truck out   referring
to payment  by   hour,   Thi-  led  to a
hut   discussion,   the  Socialists   them-
selves not being united em  the question, and on a division it was defeated.
Mr.  Plemming moved  that   Clause

the question   of  whal  was  a     living

It was argued that if ihis amendment

the chairman   ruled it in  order.     Mr.
Plemming in the course of bis speech
made a strung attack on the Government fur the loose wa;  in which they
had drafted   the  bill, and pointed out
that by the appointment of a Board of
28 Wage Commissioners there was some

A NEW INDUSTRY PROGRESS   ON   JOINT
FOR SOUTH VANCOUVER SEWERAGE  SCHEME
South Vancouver to Pay Share of the
Expense
With lhe rcpe.rt of the joint sewerage committee read at the Council
meeting un Monday, was enclosed a
resolution passed by the Burrard
Peninsula Joint Ceimmittee. This
resolution recommended that a further advance of $5.01X1 be made for
boring and other work in connection
with the sewerage scheme, on the advice of Mr. Thomas, government engineer. It was also recommended
that Mr, Creer he instructed to proceed with the work. The expenditures were reported as follows: To
.March 6, $34,196.06; March 6 to 28.
$8,130.98; payroll to March 15. $162;
: A. D. Creer's salary for March. $250.
'the suggestion- embodied in the
report were adopted, and a resolution that the Council pay their share
of the expense  was passed.
Extensive  Industrial   Development  of
the  Municipality
An important new industry is to
be established in Semth Vancouver
at an early date, application having
been made tee register the concern
under tlu- name eef the- Coast Lumber and Cross Arm Company. The
company purpose manufacturing
chiefly telephone and light cms- arms,
besides wooden conduit pipes for
increasing the power of wires and
pipe cable, for which there is an extensive demand in the- municipality
and  the province  generally.
It is intended to erect a factory at
or near the corner of Thirtieth
Avenue and Fraser Street, and a
large number of men are likely to
be employed in view of the fact thai
the B. C. Telephone Company will
establish a telephone exchange and
that the B. C. E. R. have decided te;
erect a substation near the corner of
Bodwell anel Main. Besides these
undertakings, the opening of thc
Xeirth Arm and the cuting e.f a tunnel from False Creek tei the Fraser
will materially add to the activity of
the district.
Several other proposed developments throughout the municipality
will greatly contribute tee the increased business of ihis and other industries during the present year. The
council has in band the paving of
Westminster Road and Main Street
from Sixteenth to Twenty-fifth
avenues, the grading of Rupert
Street and the opening eif a new water
supply at the C. P. R. springs, and
there are other extensive improvements already planned or in contemplation.
Dog Taxes to be Raised
That there are too many stray
dogs, ownerless, homeless and license-
less in South Vancouver was the
'opinion expressed at the police com-
' mit tee  meeting;   last  Friday.
It was decided, therefore, to recommend to the council that a dogcatcher
be employed for three months to
gather in the derelicts which will then
be handed over to the tender mercies
of  a  pound-keeper.
The cost of licenses is also to be
raised at the end of the current year,
the tax on male dogs to be $2 instead
of $1.50, and the tax on female dogs
$3. instead of $2.

THE MONEY BYLAWS
ON Saturday the ratepayers of Soulh Vancouver will
he asked to ratify money bylaws amounting to a
total e,f $1,305,000. This large expenditure has heen keenly and closely considered by Council eonunitteet, and has
also heen widely discussed at puhlic meetings. It is proposed to raise the amount named by means of five per
cent, debentures, and amendments t.e all e,f last year's
money by-laws to allow "f lhe raising e,f the rate of
the interest from 4�� per cent, to 5 per cent., will also be
submitted to the ratepayers.
These bylaws provide for quite necessary public improvements. They are necessary if South Vancouver is
to progress as a public-spirited municipality, and if it is to
maintain its desirable position feer residential purposes.
They include the sum of $575,000 for street improvements
and the construction e,f bulkheads, culverts and trestle
bridges, work that is of immediate urgency, Thc other
bylaws covering the waterworks, lire, sidewalks, hospital
and school departments are all matters of vital interest
to residents of South Vancouver, and it may be confidently expected'that the ratepayers will appreciate the necessity of the proposed expenditure.
CIVIC HALL REQUIREMENTS
THERE is probably mi other municipality of like size
throughout the province where the civic hall is so
miserably Inadequate as that of Se.uth Vancouver. It is
bald and dclapidatcd in appearance, while its chamber
and office accommodation is of lhe must meagre and unsatisfactory kind. From a hygienic point eef view lie.

conspicuously absent. The whole" arrangements of the
building in fact, arc not only utterly defective from a
civic standpoint but they also must unfai orably impress the
visitor tn tlu- hall a- i" ih.- standing of ihe municipality.
Thai these unsatisfactory conditions an- now generally
recognized is evidenced by ilu- recent decision of the
Council te, make proposed adelitieens lee the hall at a cost
of $12,000. Having regard t" the position of South Vancouver as a municipality tin- proposed extensions el" not
appear in indicate a far-sighted policy. Additions to
even the liuc.-i buildings seldom improve their exterior
appearance: in ilu- ca-.- nf ramshackle structures lhe effect is  generally incongruous and  sometimes grotesque.
It i.s of the firsl importance that a progressive municipality should have a civic hall of good architectural design. The inure imposing iln- structure is lhe better. The
Municipal Hall is expected to In- mn- of lhe finest buildings in the municipality. Thi- is generally recognized
in the principal cities .'md municipalities 'if lhe province
and even in iln -mall leiwus of the Fraser Valley com
mendable efforts are being made in ibis direction. Among
recently erected new civic halls, lite Burnaby Hall at Edmonds, ihe Surrey Hall tit Cloverdale, and the Iiclt.-i nail
at Ladner are praiseworthy example- uf well designed.
if not exactly pretentious, buildings. None of these niuiii-
ipalities endeavored in make additions in iheir old buildings, but put up new halls with due regard to both interior accommodation and exterior appearance.
All the conditions and prospects now seem io Indicate
that even if the proposed additions are made to the
present South Vancouver civic hall ii is extremely probable that a new building will be required in two or three
years' time, lu the meantime, should lhe $12,000 extension be carried out. no adequate value is likely to bc received for the money expended. These additions may
provide some temporary extra accommodation, but it
docs not appear that they will do adequate justice to the
requirements of the municipality. The erection of a
hilly-equipped and well-designed new hall later would
seem to be a wiser policy than temporary, make-shift extensions now.
MAKING LOVE TO THE C N. R.
FROM newspaper rcpnrts and from men who should
bc in a position to know, the Canadian Northern
Railway has almost definitely decided to enter Vancouver by tunnel from the oanks of lhe Xorth Arm of the
I'raser  River.
Engineers declare that the entrance to the proposed
tunnel, owing to the contour of land, must be at a point
in South Vancouver, near the foot of Victoria Drive.
So excited have a group of people in the municipality
become over the possibility of the road passing through
the district, that they urge that South Vancouver go to
any length lo tempt the Canadian Northern over the
Burnaby-South  Vancouver boundary line
Sonic enthusiasts declare that South Vancouver .hould,
in order to get the tunnel entrance, grant the Canadian
Northern Railway a free right-of-way, lands for stations
and other concessions worth hundreds of thousands of
dollars.
It is likely that when Sir William MeKenzie hears the
reports from South Vancouver hc will declare that this
municipality is the most generous of all thc good-hearted
municipal corporations of the West. Immediately he
will instruct that Reeve Kerr be communicated with with
the idea of getting South Vancouver, in view of the great
honor being bestowed upon it, to dig tlie blessed tunnel
for the company.
While the South Vancouver Board of Trade usually
works for the very best interests of the district, and
while it is a body which has done and is doing immeasure-
able good for the district, there is no question out the
members have been premature in hastening to court one
of the biggest railroad  corporations in  the world.

attitude has been the virtual cessation of the Oriental invasion "f both Australia and X-�� Zealand.
in Canada its ii quite another story, British Columbia in particular has the unenviable notoriety of receiving
thc great bulk of Oriental immigration, compared with
iln- other provinces, Notwithstanding the supposed im-
position of increased entry fees and other so-called restrictions, the Chinese, Japanese and Hindoos continue
to -warm intee ibis province iii ever swelling numbers.
The last i-ttcel bulletin of the census department showedIquestion    of    time    when    districts

uf 39,137 Asiatics In the Dominion, .10,447 are in British
Columbia These ligures. moreover, do not include the
probably large  proportion  "f Asiatics included in    the
large number of 1X5.0.12 given as "unspecified." 'I here is
something very mysterious in lhe huge increase under
this head; the previous census gave a teital of only 34.674.
It would be interesting tee kneew, considering the alleged
surreptious entry of thousands of Chinese and Japanese
into this province, how many Orientals are comprised iu
this large unspecified total.
That many Chinese arc smuggled into Canada without
paying the necessary fees, or by means of graft, and that
numbers of Japanese manage to evade certain restrictions
has been often asserted and appears too likely a supposition,
Not until Canada adopt! stringent exclusive measures
similar to those 'if Australia and New Zealand will the
menacing invasion of Orientals bc materially stayed. In
those countries Orientals arc required to pass an examination in reading nr writing a language of which they
are known or found to be ignorant, by which simple device
this undesirable immigration has been largely, if not
completely prevented. If Other British dominions are
able to successfully cope with Ihis yellow danger, it

extended or improved, or both. Ill

offices and mail routes as rapidly as

IN  lite  eyes  e.f  the  Dominion  Peestal  authorities.  Soulh
Vancuuver   is a  rural  municipality���a  township  where

as ii is from the post office at New Westminster.

taking the problem up. Investigation shows thai hundreds nf parcels fi mail fnr all points in the municipality

making complications less  annoying.
It is peiinted out, however, that the rapid growth and
development of South Vancouver has brought a problem
to the Postal authorities that has never before been met

MORE FLAG-WAVING
FURTHER attempts to make Smith Vancouver a
laughing stock were perpetrated at Civic Headquarter some days ago, when a delegation of "Loyalists"
waited upon tbe Council with a memorandum front the
"Ratepayers' Association of Ward Three," asking that
only British bom be employed at the Municipal Hall and
urging the dismissal of Mr. R ,T. Morris, wiring inspector, on the grounds that he did with malice aforethought
Commit the tin forgivable crime of residing for a time in
the United States of America.
It is unfortunate that Mr. Morris' past thus flies up
and hits him in the face While he lias sworn off from
living in thc L'nited States, there are other severe charges
that may be laid against him. One is that he is a mighty
reliable young man who pays attention to his duties.
Hc is a skilled electrical man. In spite of the fact that
his duties bring him into constant association with wires,
he has refrained, wc arc reliably informed, from pulling
wires to secure his humble position with thc municipality
and is holding down his job een his fnerit rather than
upon  his wire-pulling capabilties of his  nationality.
This flag-waving outburst freim Ward 3 goes to show
that even in a new community where there is ample
scope for men to broaden out and engage themselves
with manly tasks, people fall into ruts, get lean and hungry mentally, and develop measly, narrow, childish ideas.
If thc Mr. Morris in question isn't attending to business, he should be summarily dismissed, bc he Yankee
or Canadian. Efficiency should count for something.

Dear Sir,���In your issue of last
week appears a letter from Mr.
Robert McBride asking the people
DO! lei vote for the money by-laws.
I would like to ask Mr. McBride:
If it had not been for these money
by-laws which were voted for before,
antl which on different occasions he
has asked lo vote down, what would
bis properly be Worth today?
Has Mr. McBride ever done any
good to South Vancouver? As a
chronic kicker he heads the list.
Mr McBride got his land in the
days when a man would give it away
to anyone who would take it. Ile
has his farm rented to Chinamen and
they till the land to pay the taxes
feer Mr. McBride. Has Mr. McBride
ever done anything to justify the increase of bis land to $6000 per acre?
If by bis ef/wn individual efforts he
has raised the value of his land to
this enhanced price, then he has a
right to vote-against the money bylaw- On 'Hie other hand, if the
value has been created through tlie
enterprise e,f the community and the
hard work of the Chinamen, Mr. McBride has no right to have any say
in  the  municipality.

NOTES OF INTEREST TO THE
LADY OF THE HOUSE
placed upeeii iln- wedding gifts of Miss
Amelia Tweed, dughter of the fam-
oui "H'iss" Tweed.
Tlu- importance of selecting a becoming veil is Heel always appreciated, especially as regards its harmonizing with the hat.
The   shops  have  endeavored  tee  aiel
women i" a wise selection oi veils by
placing mirrors at convenient intervals along tlu- veil counter, hut bow
many women take advantage ol
them? Tlie majority prefer to have
the ohligiug clerk hold the veil
against her face, never taking into
consideration that tile veil that may
he charming against the face of the
pretty clerk may tend lo hring into
importance some feature they (the
customers) should hide. If there is
a blemish oi any kind em the face, the
veil is sure to throw it into bold relief if care is not exercised in the
selection of it. On the other hand, a
weil chosen veil will often soften too
prominent features or blur sharp outlines.
The greys and browns, which this
season will share the interest with
black and white veils, offer another
sni.rc for the woman who buys her
veils carelessly. It takes a generous
supply of color in the cheeks to make
the greyish taupe veils becoming, and
if a woman is inclined to have a yellowish tinge in her skin, the shade
will accentuate it. Veils of this color will be very stylish this spring,
even  with  black  hats.
The vogue for brown has brought
with it the brown veil, and while it
is most becoming against the checks
with color, still it does not cast Ihe
yellowish hue the taupe veil has been
found to do. The brown veil is worn
quite as often with the black hat as
with a straw blending to a brown
tone.
The woman with a white skin will
find lhe complexion veils, as they are
called, very becoming. These have
a pinkish tone, and cast over the skin
this same rosy color. They can be
found in the fine meshes which are
so stylish this season, and arc combined with black, cither in the form
of a chenille dot, a shadow pattern or
a small floral design. The woman
who is apt to flush up under a brisk
walk or a little excitement would do
well to avoid them, and select instead one of the black and white veils,
for the combination of nature's coloring with the pink of the veil is apt
to be a rather exaggerated color.
There is cause for rejoicing in the
fact that the line meshes are favored
by fashion, for they are far 1110-2 becoming to the majority of women
titan the coarse inches. Th.! liner
and more inconspicuous these veils
are the better th'sy are frori th 1
fashion point of view, and otic mijrht
add, fr, 111 a commonsense one r.s well,
for the .'ne, simi.'o mesh is less trying on die eytn. When tlu small
chenille dot is adaecj, it is used sparingly, and is so widely space;j that
there is no dangc; of injuring the
eyesight.
The veil with the fine mesh is
a godsend to the woman who has forgotten her birthdays. It has a delightfully softening effect which succeeds in subtracting some of the
dreaded years by blurring the telltale  lines
Embroidery Work
When working floral designs, the
leaf or petal that laps under another
part of the design should be worked
first. A simple method of working
leaves or petals is tei begin at thc
apex, and after making a little line
of stitches down the centre, work to
the right until that half is tilled in;
then fill in the left half, geiing back
to  the  apex  again   to  begin.
When the work requires delicate
shading begin at the base and gradually work upward on the whole leaf
or petal, until it is completed. Some
people outline the veinings first, but
a better way is to put such veining as
may be necessary in last over the
completed work.
To mark the outline of leaves and
flowers, run a single row of outline
stitching around the edge. This
treatment raises thc work and devel-
, ops   il-   lights   and   shadows;   but   if
I high   lights   are   desired,   the   padding
musl   I'e  thick but  seeft,  worked  with
sir.ciiel���   eef   padding   or   darning   cot-

Delicate shading can be done in a
manner thai looks like painting; that
i-. ilu- colors can be cleverly*worked
iu such a way that they blend with
one another almost the way they do
in a picture. This is done by running
lhe Stitches of one color well up into tlie olher, so as to have no decided  line  where they  meet.
The Jewel  Casket
Most people possess, hidden away
in some drawer, a box full of out-of-
date jewelry, odd trinkets, loose
stones, broken bits of gold and silver,
of various descriptions. As a rule
these relics are regarded as quite
useless and only fit for melting down
or re-setting entirely, as the case may
be; but from seime feeling of reverence they are laid away just as they
are and forgotten. Now, however,
is just the time to look over any old
jewelry and see what can be done
with it, for practically everything is
worn at present, and fashion allows
such wide latitudes in all that pertains to personal adornment. The
greater part of our great-grandmothers' treasured trinkets generally comprises such things as mosaics,
cameo jade, tortoise shell, to say nothing of the heavy and sometimes Roman jewelry, silver filigree, Bohemian
garnets and huge corals set in a network of gold, all in the height of
fashion some seventy or eighty years
since.
In those days such articles as pendants, brooches and ear-rings were
large and cumbrous, far too heavy
and clumsy for present-day wear. Yet
with a little ingenuity, the old-fashioned amethyst parpure or a set of
cameos or mosaic can be made into
a handsome necklace, or a bandeau
for the coiffure; they should be arranged with the brooch or large
stone in the centre, an earring and
half the dress buttons on each side,
connecting the pieces with a thin
gold chain. Long chains, either of
gold or silver, such as were so fashionable more than half a century ago,
can be brought up to date here and
there with various stones, such as
seed pearls, corals, topaz, turquoise
or any odd unset stones you may
happen to possess. Then again, the
old filigree silver or gold necklets
can be used for the shoulder straps
of the evening corsage, or mounted
simply on a black velvet bandeau,
they make very charming ornaments
for  modern  coiffure
Costly Wedding Gifts
The almighty dollar is very much
in evidence when the daughters of
American money kings, marry, but it
will doubtless be some time before
the record gift of $4,00t),000 received
by Miss Schwab neet long ago from
her brother, the President of the
American Steel Trust, on ber marriage to a prosperous townsman of
Johnstowne, Pennsylvania, will be
beaten. Al the same time, there have
been equally remarkable gifts made
hy other millionaires tee their daughters. There was Miss Louisa Pierpont Morgan, who wedded that fortunate young lawyer, Mr. Sattcrlee,
and received from her father not
einly bonds to the value of $1.(100,000,
but also a mansion on the banks of
the Hudson River, and jewels which
would have made Marie Antoinette
green with envy.
And then there was Miss Helen
McLaughlin, who, when she married
Dr. Alexander Carroll, not only received a cheque for half a million
dollars from her father, but, to quote
the words of one reporter, jewelry
sufficient to stock half-a-dozen
shops." Her sister, too, Mary McLaughlin, who preceded her to the
altar, received gifts amounting to $1,-
000,000,   and   a   similar     value     was

DISTINCTIVE SUITS
We are showing a very new type of suit, called the
"Sports Rugby." It is made with single-breasted
front, patch pockets, close fitting pleated back, with
stitched down half strap from seam to seam, and deep
vent. The bloomers are the full-cut kind so much in
vogue.
No other make of suit sets off the well made boys'
figure to the same advantage. We have it in a beautiful range of tweeds, at very moderate prices. When
looking over our range, do not fail to ask for the

A Princess' Umbrella
Princess Mary is never seen wit lint aii umbrella. The habit is perhaps inherited. The Duke eef Cambridge- always carried eme. and so did
Queen Victoria, who used to boast
that    she-    was    never   caught   uiipre.-
vidcii in ��� shower.
The young princess has a passion
for umbrellas and sunshades, and has
a remarkable collection of these, with
interesting handles, given to her by
members of her family. In the handle of ait umbrella which the Prince
of Wales brought Ilis sister from
Paris is a liny jewelled watch,
which the Prince picked up in a
curiosity sheep in the Rue de Rivoli.

the trinket belonged to Mary Antoinette.

Riding Astride
The majority of the smartest English women are not riding astride
even in the hunting field this year
and in several instances smart mother! have ceased to allow their little
girls to continue the mode.
The latest fiat that has gone forth
is that, especially where growing
girls are concerned, this practice
spoils the shape of thc limbs and
consequently the walk. Not a few
of the children who have always ridden astride have now developed bow
legs after the manner of the jockey, and in at least one case that has
come under the personal notice of
the writer a young girl had to undergo an operation to correct the
trouole. Again, instead of bring such
a safe attitude several recent accidents have been directly attributed
to it. When a horse plunges, for
instance, its hind quarters in the air,
or rears, a woman, having less
strength than a man, is unable to
grip with force and is in danger of
being thrown off; whereas the pummel of the side-saddle gives her a
very fair hold.

"Melba" the Magpie
Madame Meloa has just received
what might be considered by some
a dubious honor from her native
Australia. The Commonwealth possesses a "League of Bird Lovers."
One of the oojects of this league
is the rcchristening of tho-e Australian birds that in (he early days were
given absurd or inappropriate names.
In pursuance of this purpose the league has decided that in future the
magpie is to be known as tbe "Melba."
The magpie may become the Melba
in the language of the league,
but Melba will always be thc Australian nightingale, and to associate her
with a mere chatterer is scarcely
kind.

SOME USEFUL RECIPES
Fritter Batter
The general rule for fritter batter
is as follows ; Put one quarter teaspoonful of salt into one cup of flour,
beat the yolks of two eggs and add
to them gradually half a cup of milk.
Slir this slowly into the flour, beating until smooth. Add a tablespoonful eif melted butter and stand aside
for an  hour or two.
If the weather is very cold the batter can be made over nighl. In fact
it will be improved by long standing.
* *    *
A Lamb Entree
Breast of lamb is cut into inch
squares and covered with cold water.
One onion, one carrot, a few sprigs
of parsley, and a bay leaf are added,
and the wheile placed over the fire.
Bring to a boil slowly and cook' for
half an Hour, then strain, saving the
liquid, Put two tabiespoonfuls of
butter into a saucepan with a tablespoonful of curry powder. Let this
simmer, then stir in one tablcspoonful of flour, two tabiespoonfuls of
grated cocoanut, and a dash of some
piquant  sauce like  Worcester.
Pour on the strained liquid and
mix thoroughly. Next add the pieces
of lamb, sweet potatoes, and salt tu
taste.
Cook for fifteen minutes and serve
on a dish surrounded by a wall of
rice.
* *   ��
White Sauce
A plain white sauce of drawn butter
to be served with vegetables : One
cup milk, a few grains of pepper, two
tablespoons flour, quarter teaspoon
salt, and two tablespoons butter.
Put butter and flour mixed with
seasonings in the saucepan, as butter
melts stir in flour and seasonings;
c6ok until smooth and bubbling, add
milk gradually, one-third at a time,
stirring vigorously.
Vegetables need great care. Summer vegetables should be cooked as
soon after gathering as possible. In
case they must be kept, spread on
bottom of cool, dry, well-ventilated
cellar, or place in ice hox. Lettuce
may be kept by sprinkling with cold
water and placing in a tin pail closely covered, or wrapped in a towel
and laid on ice. Winter vegetables
should be kept in a cool, dry place.
Beets, carrots, turnips, and potatoes
should be put in barrels or piled in
bins to exclude as much air as possible.
* *      A
Camphor Soap
This soap can be made at home by
placing in a double boiler one pound
of any good, hard, white soap with
eight ounces of boiling water. Boil
until the soap is almost solid . Then
add six ounces of olive oil mixed with
one  dram  of  prepared  camphor.
Take the mixture from thc stove
and use an egg beaten vigorously until lhe mixture begins to harden.
Then put away in jars.
* *   *
Rust on Irons
Probably the reason why the irons
rust is because they are placed in a
damp place when out of use.
First clean off all the rust, using
sand paper, salt, or any similar agent,
and finally  polish  with  wood ashes.
Then to prevent the rust forming
again, rub with something greasy.
Lard, oil, vaseline, or anything handy
will answer.
Lastly, see the irons are kept in a
dry place.
Practical  Seedmen
One of the most attractive, well
printed and illustrated Seed Cata-
h.gins issued in the province is that
ol Messrs. Ritchie Brand & Co., of
723 Robson Street, Vancouver. It is
clearly and compactly compiled and
easy of reference, while the illustrations are excellent reproductions
from photographs.
This well-known seed establishment makes a point of supplying
only seeds of the highest germination. Messrs. Ritchie Brand & Co.
are practical seedmen and their vegetable and flower seeds are specially
greiwn from their personally selected pedigree stocks, being carefully
tested as to the purity and germination on their premises. For the
highest standard of quality, the
prices   of   this   Seed   Hous;   will   be
found  most  moderate.
Small   Fire   Outbreak
Fire broke out last Friday at the
blacksmith shop owned by Mr.
Thomas Gulliford on Forty-ninth
Avenue and Fraser Street. The fire,
which was caused by a defective
stove pipe, was quickly overcome by
the men of Xo. 3 Fire Hall, South
Hill. Thc damage was inconsiderable.
A Huge Herring Harvest
Yarmouth waters have yielded a
rich harvest during the past fishing
season. Herring have appeared in
draughts unequalled in a thousand
years' experience of the industry. The
total take from September to the end
of Xovemhcr will, it is estimated, be
at least 700,000,000 fish. This is an
increase of about 350,000,000 on the
record of two years ago and 150,000,-
000 on last year's yield. To take one
instance iu thc general success attending fishermen, a single "drifter," or
herring-boat, went into Lowestoft
with a catch of 150,000 herring. These
netted over $20 a "cran," which is
about  1,000 fish.
This coast does a big export trade.
There is a growing demand from
Russia and Siberia. Some 480,000
tubs have already been exported from
Yarmouth, and a further quantity is
still in course of shipment. Herring
refus; is used for fertilizer. Of the
thousand and more boats owned by
fishermen, which, inclusive of their
tackle, represent a capital of $50,000,-
000,  a   large  percentage  are  Scotch.
A mystery attaches to the movements of lhe herring. It is not known
exactly where the big shoals come
from. Another curious fact is that
as drift nets increase in number and
tackle improves the lish appear to
multiply accordingly. A single herring is capable of producing three-
quarters of a million eggs. Hence
limitation of destructive apparatus
would cause a big increase in the
quantities   of   fish.
The drift net in use is a surface
net. and does not imprison the fish.
Only those are caught which swim
in and for centuries it has been made
of a mesh large enough to let undersized lish slip through. Bigger fish
are caught by the gill net. The "drifter," however, is threatened by thc
trawler, whose net is so weighted
with chains that it drags through the
sand, and it is braided so close that
not the smallest fish escapes. As
herring spawn is viscous, clinging to
the bottom of the sea, it is destroyed
by the trawl net and not touched by
the drift.
"Oh, Miss J , I suppose you are
familiar with  Crabbe's  tales?"
Young lady (scornfully): "I was
not aware that crabs had tails, sir!"
Young man (confusedly); "I beg
pardon. I should have said 'read'
Crabbe's  tales."
Young lady (still more scornfully):
"And I was not aware that red crabs
had  tails, either!"
A Xew York physician was giving
an informal talk on physiology upon
the windy, sea-fronting porch of an
Atlantic City hotel.
"Also," he said, "it has lately been
found that the human body contains
sulphur."
"Sulphur!" exclaimed a girl in a
blue and white blazer. "How much
sulphur is there, then, in a girl's
body?"
"Oh," said the physician, smiling,
"thc amount varies."
"And is that," asked the girl, "why
some of us make so much better
matches  that  others?"
'What do you call your composition?" asked the man who had listened patiently.
"What would you suggest?" asked
the  popular composer.
"Oh, Carmen or Faust or Trova-
tore."
"But those have all been done before."
"So has the rest of the composition."
"Excuse me," said the caller, "but
do you practise medicine?"
"Yes," said the doctor.
"Then I must apologize for having
intruded. I want somebody who
knows his business. I can't let anybody practise on me," said the visitor.
A good way for a man to discover
that he doesn't know a woman is to
marry her.
Short Lesson in Household

Are you using carbon lamps for lighting ?
Do you know that Tungsten lamps give three times the amount
of light obtained from the carbon lamp wiih the same consumption
of current?
Would it not be advisable for you to secure this improved form of
lighting ?
After you have considered the above queries visit our salesrooms
and ask the lamp counter clerk to demonstrate the difference between the Tungsten lamp and the ordinary carbon lamp.
For convenience of our customers we carry a full line of Tungsten
lamps, of an improved type, in stock.

hadna saw him feir a long time, an'
he wi, sae intent on readin' lhe contents i ' the bill thai he wis gaun bye
me withoot ipeakin'. 1 gets a baud
o' him by the airm an' sleeps him. I
askit him what wcre the prices an' he
says a dollar a-piece an that he batl
three tickets. 1 wis wunnerin' what
he wi, slaverin about, but jist then I
got a glint at the heedin', an' I
noticed il wis a sweepstake. "That
wis hard luck." be says, "I wis only
twa frae ihe wiinnin number���$18,000
thc first prize-. What dae yae think
o' that. Sandy, is it no provokin'."
"Is that a fact," I says, "I wud gaun
back ii 1 wis you an' see if they
hevna made a mistake; it's an easy
thing lae slip in wan feegur instead
o' anither." "Och, naethin' daen,"
hc say,. "I made share o' that; I've
been argyin the pint this lasl hoeir
back an' ils nae use." "What wud
yae dae ony wey. if yae had wun it
Jimmy,"  I   ,aj���:  "Yae  wud    likely
gaun an' make a darned fule 'e' yersel."
"Son-of-a-gun," he says, "what wud
I dae wi il; I'd show yae. I wud hae
a trip neon the world for wan thing,
an hae an unco guid lime at thai.
Efter I came hame I wud endow an

Business generally along Main
Street continues to show gratifying
Ugni e,f increasing activity. A number of new stores are ill preicess of
construction, while others arc undergoing finishing touches.
The leading topic of discussion this
week among Main Street tradesmen
and other residents has been the bylaws which the ratepayers will vote
upon on Saturday. A large expenditure is involved, but the general
opinion appears to bc that the bylaws call feir well-considered plans
of improvement as well as necessary
public business, althemgh exception
is taken by some ratepayers to specific items. In view of the road Improvements proposed. Main Street is.
eif course, especially interested in the
result of Saturday's vote. The general polling booth for all wards is on
Main   Street,   near  25th   Avenue.
The Half-holiday
There docs not appear to be, as
yet, perfect unanimity among storekeepers as to the proposed Wednesday half holiday. The majority of
grocers, butchers and barbers have
agreed to the proposition, but several
still remain undecided. A few of ihe
butcher* have suggested waiting until May before adopting the early
closing proposed.

STABBING  AFFRAY
ON  VICTORIA  ROAD
If all epitaphs had to be truthful it

Italian  Charged With Knifing Three
Men   Near   Tram   Terminus
Joe Triano. an Italian, who gave
bis address as 771 l'ender Street Kast,
Vance,uver, was charged at the police I
court on Monday before Magistrate
McArthur with stabbing three men
een Saturday night. The alleged as-:
sault occurred near the tram terminus on Victoria Road. Thc accused
was arrested by  P. C.  Wales.
According to the evidence the three
nun alleged to have been stabbed,'
none of them very seriously, arc
Newt Larscn, a barber eel" Victoria
Koad. J. P, Gaynor of Berkeley
Street and Fifty-first Avenue, and G.
Mason, a B. C. Electric Railway car
inspector of Prince Albert Street!

It is stated that Triano and an- j
other Italian who got away, were
drunk on Victoria Reiad, and aboul
S o'clock on Saturday nighl went to
Larscn's barber shop. Gaynor tried
tei persuade them to leave the shop,
and during a Struggle which took
place Gaynor is alleged to have been
stabbed slightly in the Stomach/ and
Larscn received a wound on tbe arm
two   inches   long.
Il would appear that the Italians
then tried to enter a tramcar which
stood at the terminus, and it is alleged that Mason was stabbed in the
groin while tr 'ng to release the
hand of one of t, e men who had hold
of the handrail of the car.
Later a telphone message was sent
to the police office and P. C. Wales
with the police patrol wagon, was
soon on the scene and arrested lia-
ano, who is alleged to have done the
stabbing. The other man had disappeared. The magistrate adjourned
the case until  Wednesday.

This play was written for Maude

Il i- n il a one part play, the role of
the Sheriff, Hill Ruggles,. which will

ti'cally every member of the

motive   is   a   charming   one,   and   the
comedy is ever present, brightly ori-
I ginal and most amusing. It is a
sweet, clean wholesome play. iis
characters are real people, and the
plot   is   unusually   coherent   and   in-
! terestlng. The Avenue has been somewhat shy of late on plays of this
type, and many of its patrons will
welcome the return of the chaps and
Stetsons and Iln.- scent of the sage-
bush and alkali. Packed In'Uses will
doubtless rule at the Avenue next

CHARGE OF ASSAULT
AGAINST H. M. SNEPPER
Superintendent of B. C.  Hospital Association committed for trial
As a sequel to the recent investigation by the B. C. Medical Association of charges of alleged unprofessional conduct against four Vancouver doctors, H. M. SncppeY of the
British Columbia Hospital Association was arrested last Saturday on a
charge  of assault.
Snepper was arrested on information laid by Mr. George Burrows,
who charges the accused with having
assaulted Mrs. Lee mora Brown of
3790 Quebec street. On Saturday
Snepper was committed for trial by
Magistrate McArthur.
In the course of his evidence,
Frank Ford Brown, husband of Mrs.
Brown, stated that as his wife was
il, he went to thc British Columbia
hospital and asked for a doctor. He
was told by a nurse that there was no
doctor there at the time, but one
would be sent later in the evening.
Some time afterward Snepper arrived,
and, Brown testified, described himself as "the doctor." Brown was
sent out of thc room on the excuse
that some wood was needed with
which to raise the foot of the bed.
Later the alleged doctor said that Mrs.
Ilrown would have to go to the hospital for a slight operation.
Mrs. Leonora Brown swore that
when her husband went out of thc
room Snepper made an examination.
Had she known that he was not a
qualified physician, she would most
certainly have objected to his presence in her bedroom.
After hearing the evidence Snepper was committed for trial.
Snepper was admitted to bail
.mounting to $50(K), which included
$2,500 personal surety and two securities of $1250 each. He was released Irom custody on  Monday.

The question of an incinerator is
being pretty freely discussed just
now, This is a matter that will require te, be very closely and carefully considered. In the lirst place
there is the question whether there is
enough refuse in thc municipality to
keep it in constant work. Before
anything is done statistics of the
amount of rubbish collected should
be prepared, as well as the cost of
the erection of the plant, the cost for
operating, and where such a plant is
to be erected, so that the system will
be able to bc used for generating heat
feer an electric plant to supply both
heat and light for the municipal
buildings. This is a case where thc
advice of an expert in such matters
is necessary. If thc Council think
the time has arrived when an incinerator ought to be erected, then data
should bc gathered from every city
from Winnipeg to Quebec.

The dog tax has been a little lax in
coming in this year. Chief Jackson
is now about to apply the screw. The
policemen know all the owners of
dogs on their beats; these are being
carefully checked up with the licences, and those who have no tag
will get a ride on the dog cart.
Afterwards, if their owners do not
claim their pet within a certain number of days, and pay 50c for every
day they occupy the new hotel that
has been prepared for them, then
the carcass of many happy dogs will
be cremated, and the cost of cremation, along with the preservation of
the ashes will be charged against the
owner.

the young men and youths over' sixteen years of age, that they can find
no better means of employing some
of their spare time than by joining thc
local militia. The Drill Hall is on
Cambie Street, Vancouver, and to
those who were volunteers in the
Old Country this gives a nice opportunity of following up their
hobby.

The Money Bylaws are now before
the people. It is to the advantage of
every ratepayer to see that these are
carried. Don't stay away from the
peelling booth and say there is no use
for your vote. Every vote is wanted. Some of the ratepayers arc a
little sore because annexation was
not granted by the Government. This
was no fault of the Council. Thc
present Council have worked hard
anil conscientiously in the carrying
eiut of their work. The money bylaws arc the sinews whereby the man-
dales of the people may bc put into
effect. F.very vote cast is a vote of
confidence, and a sustaining of the
vote given al the elections. If any
ol lhe bylaws arc turned down, who
will bc ihe sufferer? Not the Council, It would only tend to hinder
in.egress for another year. Il wouhl
slop employment in the municipality.
To the city worker it means so many
more "aspirants for the situations you
fill. To the real estate man it means
sabs will be dead. To the grocer less
trade will be done. Thos; who will
suffer most from a money bylaw being turned down arc the working-
men. However, I have every confidence that there will be few, if any,
votes cast against the present money
bylaws.

The swallows, the heralds of summer, have arrived all day.. I have
watched numbers of them flitting
about. This means that last year's
straw hat will soon require to be
hunted out and preparation made for
the coming warm weather.
I   t'   i
I have received a copy of a circular from the School Roard urging
lhe ratepayers to vote for the School
Bylaws. Sure this is unnecessary. No
one wilh a spark eef manhood or matron affection in their nature would
vote against these  bylaws.
The one who would east a negative
vote, would be addinir insult to injury. The School Trustees have shown
by their past work, that they are men
of integrity. Men who are ungrudgingly giving the time which . they
should give to their business and their
homes, for the benefit of the education of the young. Yet these men
who arc sacrificing as they are doing
for thc good of the community as a
whole, are as it were requiring to
come with cap in hand soliciting for
the bylaws to be passed. It would
be an everlasting disgrace to South
Vancouver  if  the   bylaw  is  rejected.
I never desire to see evil come to
anyone, but I do hope that those who
register a mark against thc hospital
will be the first to require the use of
one.
To those who have Iain upon a sick
bed and how few have not, the blessing of a well regulated hospital is
a boon beyond price.
Let South Vancouver have an hospital of its own. On Saturday when
you go to vote think of those who
are lying sick at home waiting their
turn to get a bed in the Vancouver
hospital. Tomorrow it may be your
turn, if notMhen so much the better,
but some day you are bound to require the aid of a doctor. Think what
a difference it will make if you are
accommodated in South Vancouver
without having to be driven off to
Vancouver.

We are glad to note that our old
friend Dr. Giles B. Murphy, popular
doctor to the municipality, is not the
Dr. Murphy mentioned in the famous
Snepper case. Dr. Giles B. Murphy
has never been identified in any way
with the tonsorial chiropodist Snepper or the British Columbia Hospital
Association.
BOXING  CONTESTS
FOR SOUTH VANCOUVER
Boxing Promoter is Granted License
by the Council
An application by Mr. J. McMahon I
of   Vancouver   for   a   license   to   hold
skilled  boxing contests in  a building
to be erected ill thc municipality was
granted  by   the  Council  on   Monday.
In the course of discussion, Councilleir Dickinson proposed that the
Council grant a licence for each bout,
instead of for a stated period. Hc
hail me objection to boxing; in fact,
he thought  such contests, if properly
conducted, were commendable, But
as there was always the danger of
trouble or misunderstanding during
a certain period it would bc better if
the promoter bad to apply for a license for every bout, which condition would probably ensure the good
condition of thc exhibitions.
Reeve Kerr was of the opinion
that the promoter should have some
security for his expenditure. He
suggested that the license be granted
in such a form that the Council could
cancel it if thc bouts wcre not conducted  in  a  proper  manner.
The council decided to grant the
license, and tbe solicitor was instructed to draw up conditions governing the management of the proposed   entertainments.

In your i-sm- ol last week Robert

down the money bylaws. This is an
old dodge eef this gentleman. Hail
th.- School Board purchased the
ground feer the site he offered at a

assessed, of bad the Council listened
to his road making scheme and let
Mr. McBride make it at his own

have been broader and wider. Canting  hypocrisy is  worse  than  snuff.
