Municipal Owned Electric
Lighting and Power Proposed
Municipal Electrician Gives Cost
Vancouver and Several Cities
The question of an ample, efficient
and   economical, system     of    electric
lighting) and power for South Vancouver was introduced at a meeting eif
tlie Council em Monday when Mr. L
F. Rawden, municipal electrician,
made a repe.rt as to tlie cost of such
in the municipality compared with
several cities in tbe Dominion.
As lhe cost .if street lighting alone
is nol so efficient or see economical
is it might be in Semth Vancouver
lhe comparative figures given are of
sufficient   interest   lee     merit     serious
consideration, The matter of an adequate sireet lighting and power system is not only of particular interest
tei residents but aisee to manufacturers
lo whom cheap power is essential to
successful production. This latter
desideratum is of special importance
in municipalities desiring iee induce
industries to locate  in  their district.
In the course eif Mr. Kawtlen's report it  is stated :
"We paid lasl year $\3,4t*l tor street
lighting alone feer half-night service
e.f about SKI lamps. This year we
will have over til 10 lamps burning and
estimated cost is $25,(KX). If you ordered them burning all night as you
did last winter it will run over my
estimate and our presenl contract has
seven years to run.
< in  investigating either   municipal
lighting and freun my own personal
experience I claim that wc ceeitlel
operate a street lighting plant with all
night service without any cost whatever (afler installation) providing yem
give me a plant to supply incandescent lighting f'er householders and
power for manufacturers and can
guarantee a rale of about one-half
present charges which will eiiceitir-
age industries to locale here and the
surplus, as I said before, will offset
cost of our street  lighting.
I have not at present any ligures
of thc ceist e,f such a plant and weutld
suggest that you give me instructions
and exlra help to proceed in getting
ceest, plans and estimates. I would
dee my inmost to have your streets
lighted this fall with about 200 lamps
for a starl and this we must have
anyway whether you sec fit to install
a plain eir not.

K.W., which is now to be reduced
25   per   cent,   on   a   sliding   scale,   to
manufacturers.
The municipal electrician was re-
quested by the lire, water and light
committee to prepare a report on the
cost of providing an electric plant for
supplying incandescent lighting for
householders and power for manufacturers. This repeirt will take some
little time to prepare and when complete will be presented to a future
meeting oi the Council.

Councillor j. d. millar has notified the

Councillor .Millar takes exception to the following;
"It was upon property owned by Councillor Millar
that it was proposed t" build a stadium fur boxing
tournaments, The sporting grounds were tn be located near the corner nf Rosenberg Ruad ami Main
Street. The Council decided, however, that prize
lighting was not a desirable South Vancouver pastime,
ami the application of the promoters for a franchise
was thrown out."
The editor nf the "Chinook" regrets that there was
one inaccuracy in the paragraph published. The sporting grounds were to be located on six lots at the South
east corner of Bodwell Road and Main Street, not
"near the corner of Rosenberg Road anil Main
Street."
The "Chinook" published the
paragraph with the belief that
South Vancouver were entitled to such information.

Interesting Family Re-Unicn
There was a very pleasant and tin-
usually interesting picnic at Stanley
Park this week. Mrs. Isiah Mawhinncy of Victoria has been spending a
few days with her nephew, Mr. W. R.
Rutledge of Collingwood East. In
spite of her ninety odd years the old
lady got about the city and suburbs a
good deal. She much admired Stanley Park and the happy idea occurred
to Mr. Rutledge that it would be
pleasant to have a family Re-union in
honor of the old lady. Mrs. Mawhin-
ney was a Miss Rutledge before her
marriage. She has thirteen children
alive, and the Mawhinney's and Rut-
ledge's and their descendants are very
numerous,     Over   sixty   gathered   at

Mr. Staples sailed for England
from Me mt real and bad a very delightful voyage. As he had to arrange
feer the publicatie.n of Ilis bemk Mr.
Staples visited such great publishing
houses as Cassell & Co. and he spent
a good deal of time with the newspaper men eef Fleet Street, eir "Brain

inquiries about his health and his
work.
Mr. Staples found that London

than he hail been led to expect, and
he (hees met join in lhe outcry against
lhe English climate, lie saw no snow
all the winter and found Brighton, on
lhe soulh coast, bathed in glorious

DARING HOLDUP
IN SOUTH VANCOUVER i
Three Masked Robbers Hold up Conductor   and   Motorman   of   Main
Street Car
A daring holdup occurred Wednesday night at the Main Street terminus of the I!. C. E. R. About 9.50 p.m.
when the car reached the terminus
three masked men entered the car
and held up both lhe conductor and
the motorman at the point of guns.
At this time of night it i.s pretty dark,
there were no passengers in the car
and no people about so that the bandits had evidently chosen their time
well. The conductor, Joe Morrow,
happened to have about $21) of his j
own money in his pocket and of this
he was quickly relieved by the robbers, while a small amount found in
the possession of the motorman was
returned  to him.
Still covering the car men with
their guns the highwaymen cleared
off along the track towards Eburne
and  were quickly out of sight.
The South Vancouver police were
immediately notified by the conductor, and the patrol with Sergeant
Bramwell, P. C. Wales and Anthony
took up the trail without delay, but
up to Thursday morning no trace of
the robbers has been discovered.
The three highwaymen wcre apparently about 5ft. 7in. in height, of medium build, clean shaven, and judging
from their accent evidently foreigners. They both wore cloth caps and
were  partly  masked  .
"MY NEXT CAR WILL BE
ANOTHER ABBOTT-DETROIT"
That is the unanimous declaration of the owners of America's favorite
car. The majority of these motorists had previously owned cars
before purchasing an Abbott-Detroit. They were well versed in automobiles and knew what they were about when they decided that their
next car would be an Abbott-Detroit.

When Victoria Gamblers Lost Their
Money
Once upon a time a fearless judge
of the Supreme Court sitting in Victoria wa.- brave enough to manhandle
the Rev. J. V.. Starr, who was appearing as a witness in a case. The Rev.
J. E. was fearless himself. If there
was anything he was noted for in the
fair cejast cily it was f<jr the dauntless way in which be denounced
ihings oi which he disapproved. Busy-
young reporter! let the citizens in e,n

was keen a.- to the nature e,f the revenge the firebrand ye,ung Methodist  preacher  weiuld  take.
Victoria is the Monte Carlo 'ef Canada; from which it may be inferred
that gambling is a favorite pastime in
that place. Bets were made freely
in large numbers and for large sums
as i'i whether eir neit thc parsejn would
play the judge on Sunday night. Other
bets, and these were imire numerous,
were as to the nature of the scourging.
Mr. Starr's church was packed Sunday night. They turned most of the
people away. The reverend gentleman preached a noble sermon that
night, but his Lordship never figured
a line not even by inference. By-
and-bye the closing hymn was sung
and the people prepared to file out
after the benediction, disappointed
that  nothing  had   happened.
But the minister was not through.
The benediction was not quite finished.
" And may the Lord have mercy
on those who lost their money tonight. Amen," it concluded.���Toronto

Interesting Family Re-Union
There was a very pleasant and unusually interesting picnic al Stanley
Park this week. Mrs. Isiah Mawhin-
ney of Victoria has been spending a
few days with her nephew. Mr. VV. R.
Rutledge eif Collingwood East. In
spite of her ninety odd years the old
lady got about the city and suburbs a
good deal. She much admired Stanley Park and the happy idea occurred
to Mr. Rutledge that it would be
pleasant to have a family Re-union in
honor of the old lady. Mrs. Mawhinncy was a Miss Rutledge before her
marriage. She has thirteen children
alive, and the Mawhinney's and Rut-
beige's and their descendants are very
numerous,     Over   sixty   gathered   at

Trip to England

Mr. Alfred Francis Staples, waxes
very eloquent when you gel him to

Mr. Staples sailed for England
freun Montreal and hail a very delightful voyage. As he had to arrange
for the publication eef his beeok Mr.
Staples visited such great publishing
houses ;;s Cassell & Co. ami he spent
a geeod deal of time wilh the newspaper men of Fleet Street, or "Ilrain

Used t" call it. He found that in the
Menek and Newspaper world "Felix

of South Vancouver, was well remembered, and many were the kind
Inquiries ain ml his health ami his
work.
Mr. Staples found thai London
Irade was in a much better condition
than he had been led to expect, and
he eloes not join in the outcry against
llle English climate, lie saw no snow
all lhe winter anil found Brighton, on
ihe simih ce:ast. bathed iii glorious
i sunshine at Christmas time. Many
were ihe questions Mr. Staples answered aboul Canada, and many were
the   people   he   met   who   are   coming
..ui here" ami splendid Canadians
-I'll, of them will make." says Mr.
Staples, Coming home through the
States, Mr. Staples found business
very -lack at Taeoma and other
places, and he is emphatic in his declaration that travel, and the seeing
eif conditions elsewhere, will prove a
greal help to all who are dealing with
"the high cost of living" and other
problems of the day.

DARING HOLDUP
IN SOUTH VANCOUVER
Three Masked Robbers Hold up Conductor   and   Motorman   of   Main
Street Car
A daring holdup occurred Wednesday night at the Main Street terminus of the I!. C. E. R. About 9.50 p.m.
when the car reached llle terminus
three masked men entered lhe car
and held up both the conductor and
the motorman at the point of guns.
Al this time eif night it i.s pretty dark,
there were no passengers in lhe car
and no people about so that the bandits had evidently chosen Iheir time
well. The conductor. Joe Morrow,
happened to have aboul $20 of his
own money ill Ilis pocket and of this
he was quickly relieved by llle robbers, while a small amount found in
the possession of the motorman was
returned tee him.
Still covering the car men with
their guns the highwaymen cleared
off along the track towards Eburne
and were quickly out  of sight.
The South Vancouver police were
immediately notified by the conductor, and the patrol with Sergeant
Bramwell, P. C. Wales and Anthony
took up the trail without delay, but
up to Thursday morning no trace of
the robbers has been discovered.
The three highwaymen were apparently about 5ft. 7in. in height, of medium build, clean shaven, and judging
from their accent evidently foreigners. They both wore cloth caps and
were  partly  masked  .

example of some of those men who are directing the
pres.'tii system of education in the province, we can expect
I.ut little of iln- nexl generatii i the Uriiish Columbia-
born.
From Xew Westminster we are being regaled day by
day with stories of the progress uf a teacher's row and
school board investigation; in the interior, one city has
had a teachers' strike and another has recently experienced
public school Squabbles, which have been widely advertised; members of Vancouver's School Board have been
placed in an embarassing position by graft revelations;
and right here in South Vancouver, we have just closed
a disgraceful chapter in the history of local school affairs.
And in addition we are treated every now and then with
a full page a'lverli-eiiieiil in the Vance.uver dailies, which
sets forth facts supporting the allegation that in British
Columbia even such little honours as school prizes and
school medals are distributed, nol to the school children
who ni.'iil Ihcm. bul to children whose parents or districts
are "right" politically.
It would appear that instruction in the "r's" is slill
featured in the administration of the educational departments of the province. But limes have changed and the
"r's" neiw seem tei stand for instruction in���'riting other
people's names to bank cheques; reading of local school
board, civic and other scandals in the daily press; and in
the 'ritbinetic fe.r selling commissions on sales of land and
supplies   for public school purposes.
BY THE WAY
MEXICO'S DARK OUTLOOK
(New Ye erk "Times".l
Lack of money is, of course, not
the cause but the result of the existing Governmental conditions in Mexico.   The- Treasury was solvent when
1'e.rlir.. Jliax retired anel Mexican securities were regarded with favor in
the financial market. The finances
were disordered during the so-called
constitutional administration of Mad-
ei.-. and the soldier who is now Provisional President seems to be unable
in borrow. London bankers hav e denied -i report thai they have anj
connection with a reported 5 per
cent, loan at SS'A. There is room i"t
doubt that any loan lias been Becured.
Th.- condition of the Provisi >nal
Governmenl is, indei d, pi rilous from
every poinl of view. The retirement
of li li . Diaz and De La Barra as
candidates for the Presidency and
Vice-presidency will naturally be regarded -i- an indication of tin-ir disaffection, Transportation of mails
from Mexico by the land routes has
practically ceased. Rebel bands have
interrupted lhe railway sett iee. and
Vera Cruz has been nearly cut off
from communication with the interior,
Yet among all thc opponents pf tin
temporary Governmenl there is not
one man of sufficient ability and integrity to restore order oul of chaos.
A Government by commission is likely to succeed Huerta, a return to 'eld
Mexican practice, and revolution is
likely te, continue as before. The emi-
liink  was never darker.

FARM LABOR
(Toronto "Globe")
The farm labor problem is di all
With in a practical and comprehensive
way in The University Magazine- for
Vpril, by Major Walter J. Brown of
Aylmer. formerly editor of the agricultural departments nf the "Weekly
Globe." Thai the scarcity and incompetence ol such labeir are keenly felt
in Ontario i- attested by general experience, and eene of the cause- - i
forth by the writer is an impracticable system of education. It neglects
lhe technical training lhat would
imparl exquisite skill ami experience,
while it in-tills views tending to make
manual wmk distasteful. Striving for
industrial development is another
cause for the scarcity, and is a part
of the modern cityward migration.
A potent influence cited as affecting
Ontario is the Inn- of the W st. To
restore the balance of the farm labor
market Major Ilrown proposes sev-
tral lines oi practical action, which
include the establishing of immigration labor colonies and labor schools.
The need of co-operation among
farmers in securing help from Britain
is also urged. There are ior the eui-
iloying farmer many practical sug-
: slions as to dealing with farm help
ind making ns permanent employment  profitable.

THE   SMOKE   PROBLEM
( Buffalo "Keening  News")
The smoke nuisance appears
have something like a nation-wide
inter.si. The Chicago commission bas
reported, alter thorough study, thai
the annual h ss from smoke in that
city is at least $1S,CCO,COO, ami more
than half of it caused by railroads.
The Cleveland commission reported four years ago that the damage
in property in that city from smoke
was $6)000,000 a year, and that SO per
cenl. of it was caused by the railroads.
The Elmira "Advertiser" reports a
citizen of that place .who lived in the
city forty-five years, as declaring that
property in the very centre eif the
town i.s not worth today over half
what it was thirty years ago, because
people ele. im! like to live in the
smoke and are forced to do that if
they  live  in  the  business  pari   of  the
city.
It is entirely natural that claim
should be made lhat ihe reduction of
eases of tuberculosis in Xew Yeerk
city is due lo the absence of smoke
nuisance, and ii is declared thai the
decrease has amounted i" more than
40 per cent, since the roads within
the city were operated electrically.
One can readily see. ihen, thai the
Buffalo movemenl i" electrify the
roads is the best way to abate the
nuisance.

countries, an increase uf thirty-seven
per   cent.    For   every   twenty   eef   the
population of Canada, one newcomer

questions may be satisfactory.
1. The dull blacks, even silk, is

sure you could, with all respect, wear
a white collar. Many continue to
wear full mourning at least a year,
hut tee me wearing mourning is only
a fashion, and can do the dead neither
good or harm. 1 think thc way the
heart feels will mould the actions and
they are what determine the real
mourners, so, if you feel like putting
un while I really think you arc justified in doing so.
2. There is talk among the Parisians that the hair is going to soar
higher on the head, but as yet, among
those who follow, the hair is still
worn low at the back, generally parted and loosely waved over each ear.
and coiled in some way at the nape
of the  neck.
3. Yes, they are still worn, though
personally I do not fancy them, they
get so gray ami rusty looking after a

too, they make the feet look shapeless.

arc worn, hut it is not necessary lo
use  them  with  long sleeves.

any little act of courtesy. It is not
hard to say "thank you." and it helps
the one who offered the kindness to
feel his efforts to be polite were not
in  vain.

A turn iu the road brought him in
sighl of a solitary figure trudging in
the same direction as himself. A
Petravsky drew closer he- perceived
ii ie, be ih ��� figure of an ill-clad man
a tramp, he thought, w hose pondi 11 iu
physique, through the deceptive snow,
assumed herculean proportions. In
his festive moi el Petrai sky longed
for companionship, and, quickening
his pace, soon overtook his fellow
wanderer. L" i>��� ��� n hearing footsteps
behind him the man turned and revealed a face thai instantly made
Petravsky regrel his eagerness for
companionship. The man, unques
tionably, was a tramp, of powerful
build with a face sn brutal, so bloated by years of dissipation, se. repellent iu iis hard and vicious lineaments, thai Petravsfcy, almosl unconsciously, came t'i a halt, trembling.
"Hello!" saiel the man. "Where ye'
goin'?"
"I go peddlin'," replied Petravsky.
"Goodbye!"
"Heyl N'ol see fast I" as Petravsky
started to move on. The- tramp looked around���there was not another

snatched the pipe from Petravsky's
nn.uih. Petravsky was thankful to
be lei eel'i s i easily.
"()h. keep the pipe," he' said e iod
naturedly. "I smoke too much. Goe A
by!" And he- walked rapidly ahead
He had nol co\ ered twenty paci -

force of a club upon his shoulder.
"Wait a minute," said the tramp.
"I goi a hael O'lel. See3 I'm a sick
man an' you're jes' as he-allhly as
you c'n he'. So let's swap coats.
Thai'- a  good  fellow."
Petravsky's heart sank. To walk
in that hitter cold without his coal
meant suffering���possibly death. Yet,
even as he hesitated a swift blow
upon   his   mouth   felled   him   tee     the
I side   he'   placed   a   candle   which   he
lit,   proclaiming,   the  mi an'

A loud, continuous snoring woki
Petravsky early in the morning and,
peering over the edge uf a hale of
haj beside whieh he had slept, he beheld the tramp ��horr he- had 1 n-
countered the previous day stretched
at full length tiieieii the floor, sound
asleep, Hc lay with his face toward
the pedler, and Petravsky hael opportunity to study every line of his face
'i was an occupation thai made him
shudder. There' was something sodden aboul the man's countenance as
he slept, something of a coarse, bestial quality thai cried aloud of many
generations fi ignorance and de a\
ity. Anel with ii all some expression
of childish simplicity, of utter intellectual ami moral helplessness, thai
actually stirred Petravsky to pity.

sayin' when ye was jabberin' away.'"
Hied, and answered
one question after another. The phylacteries seemed to inures; the
tramp most.
"l.e t's see 'em I" he saiel.

the wish that hi- captors wouhl at-

torture. In an endeavor lo relieve the
monotony e.f hi- life he bought a
hen! eef goats and amused himself by
shooting them down one by one with
a rifle until, according to Maintain,
the grounds about Longwood were

INSURANCE  DISCUSSED
BY SCHOOL TRUSTEES
Sinking   Fund   Suggested  by  Trustee
McArthur
The question of the insurance on
seh... 1 buildings led I" an animated
discussion al the regular meeting of
the South Vancouver School Board
this week. There were representatives "i several insurance companies
present.
Trustee McArthur stated that if the
board paid into a -inking rand a certain proportion of the value of the
buildings, the trustees could cover
iheir own insurance at half the present  cost.
ral policies submitted by various companies were investigated and
eventually a number of representatives ot insurance companies were
- lected for further enquiry. It transpired that a proportion of the insurance will be given to companies for
whieh the Cedar Cottage Realty Company an- agents, in accordance with
a  former contract.
The Council having offered to advance money to the board, the following  resolution   was  passed :
"The chairman ami secretary be
wi red '. sign a checfue for $2000,
making a total option of $3000 on a

Vancouver evened up the race for
the   Minto   Cup   by   heating   tlie   Sal-
monbellies on Saturday by the big
margin of eight goals lo tour at Hastings  I'ark Oval.    N'ew Westminster
were thoroughly outclassed and the
changes made iii dm Jones' star aggregation   have   been   juslilieel   in   the
Brit game on Vancouver grounds.
It is doubtful it there exists a liner
held feir the playing of Canada's national game than the ground played
on, Saturday, ami which will be the
home of the Vancouveri for five years
Iee come. I'll Saturday the ground
was a trille slow and eaus.-d the
players considerable trouble, particularly in regard to bouncing balls.
With the advantage eif two weeks to
allow the grass t.e grow, the oval
will undoubtedly be one of the finest
in  America.
Fully eight thousand fans witnessed
the opening struggle. The accommodation supplied by the I!. C. E. R..
both to and from the park, was all
that could hc desired.
After being held to a mie-geial lead
I for two periods, the  V.  A.  C.  Mann
Cupholdefi finished with a determined effort against the New Westminster intermediates at Athletic I'ark on
Saturday and  won by a score of 9
goads t" 3.
While  llle  see.re  would  Indicate  an
easy  victory,  such  was  met  the  case.
The   Royal   City   players   nieire   Ihan
held their own. for  forty  minutes of
j the match, but in the Champions' de-
I feme   they   encountered   a   stonewall
j which kept  them  from  running  up a
i score.    On   the  either   hand, and  particularly in the last half, the V. A. C.
homefield   played     brilliant     lacrosse
I and scored at will.
"Dad" Turnbull is rapidly showing what can bc done with a young
club and on Saturday the hoys from
the Eraser river town showed lhe
best form they have ever shown here.
On Saturday the Hustlers played
Smith Vancouver Wolves, the final
s.-ore being 16-10. Marehe and Smith
were the batteries for the Hustlers
while Silver, Mullett ami Matlix were
the pitchers. Rayner and Reiss were
lhe catchers feer the W'e.Ives. The
main features eif the game were the
3-base hit by Silver ami th.- base running of II. Grant. This was the first
game lest by the Wolves.

Spokane defeated Vancouver in a
slugging game Sunday afternoon, 18
tei 8. The Indians assumed a long
lead  and   Cadrcau   was   taken  out   tee
at the bottom. He had taken it in
exchange feir some goods a week before, but had forgotten all about it.
Hc slipped it into his pocket. The
neighborhood was overrun with viscous tramps, and Petravsky did not
intend  to be robbed again.
When the early twilight set in, Petravsky lost lhe reiad. He had noticed,
for some time, that walking had become more difficult .ind thai Ihe snow-
was softer and deeper, but it was not
until he came to a row of trees
through which no mad could run that
he fully realized his predicament. It
was too dark to retrace his steps;
the wind, while not very strong, was
sufficient to dim his footsteps in that
loose snow. He could only grope on
in   the   most   promising   direction   in

B 'hall players arc public characters and photographers may make
photographs of them in action without their consent, according to a ruling of a Xew York magistrate. The
case decided was brought by the National Baseball Commission against a
moving picture concern which had
taken ph.it..graphs of games without
a permit from the management. The
plaintiffs contended that the civil
rights had been violated. The pic-
lures wcre taken during the world's
series.
The weather was ideal and from
the face-off until the end of the third
period, both teams maintained a killing pace with the championship aspirants having the shade throughout
Only toward the close of the third
quarter did the Royals seem to have
a chance. With the see ere standing
five tee two against them, I-'eeney and
"Bill" Turnbull bulged the net behind "Cory" Hess and the quarter
ended with the champions one goal
down.
It was in the fourth quarter that
the Vancouver! plainly showed their
superiority. A week ago it was in
this same period that the Royals
smothered the locals at Queen's park,
but lhe hard training of the past week
found the challengers lit and ready
for  the  full distance.

now on. Ceorge Matheson played in
splendid form anel was of great assistance to both the home and defense. Lalonde, Adamson and Allen
worked like ireijans and with Gorman had the hitherto stonewall defense of the champions worked overtime throughout lhe matinee.
Hess in goal played stellar lacrosse. His clearing was easily one
of the features of the afternoon.
It was quite a relief to see a lacrosse match between these two
rivals handled in a proper and efficient manner. Lester Patrick and
Hob Dewar, of Victoria, had charge
of the game and they acquitted them-
s.lves nobly, It was one of the
cleanest exhibitions witnessed for
many a season between these two
clubs.

the hope of finding the road again.
Soon, however, he felt beneath his
feet the uneven surface of a cultivated field, and then he knew be was
walking in the wrong direction. The
night fell quickly, Ere Petravsky
could find the slightest trace of a
beaten road the darkness was upon
him. He was in the centre of a snow
covered plain, with a fringe oi blackness ahead that lie knew to be woods
and the cold, bright stars shining over all. There was nothing to do but
to spend the night in the open���
which Petravsky had done before���
and he set his faee toward the woods.
A faint cry fell upon Ilis ears, and he
stood still. It was soon repeated; it
seemed to come from thc woods���
and it seemed to Petravsky to be the
cry nf a man calling for help. He
gave an answering cry, and then the
call  came  more  distinctly.
"Help!   Help!"
Petravsky advanced cautiously���i
the furrowed ground was difficult and
dangerous to walk upon���and in a
few minutes he discerned a dark figure  lying uiii.ii  lhe white ground.
"Hey!" came a familiar voice.
"Help a  feller!    1  broke me leg!"
It was the tramp who had stolen
his ulster. Petravsky hesitated a
moment,    lie had read ill the tramp's
eye that morning a deliberate intention to ransack his pack. Then he
remembered his revolver, and his
lingers lightened around the handle,
Hi' now advanced nieere boldly.
"What is it?" he asked.
"I lost me way an' fell in a hole
here. 1 can't move. Hello! It's you,
is it? Well ye got me dead to
rights! But Pr God's sake, help me
out of this or I'll die! Me leg's
broke at the ankle, an' the pain is kill-
in' me."
Petravsky hastily dropped his pack
and with his hands scooped away the
snow until the man's leg was clear. He
had fallen into a hole, and his ankle
had been twisted hy a stone that lay
at the bottom. Petravsky, with his
hands under the tramp's arms and by
dint of the severest physical exertion
he had ever put forth in his life, succeeded in pulling him out of the hole
to a more comfortable position.
"Wait now," he said, "f look once
at your leg and maybe I fix it. Once
my father broke his leg, and I seen
how thc doctor do it."
The ankle was blue from congested
blood and considerably swollen, but
Petravsky could find no sign of a
fracture.
"Anyway," said he, "you can't walk.
But in the woods it ain't so much
snow. You wait here."
As he walked off in the direction of
the woods the tramp called after him:
"Hey! Yc ain't goin't t' leave me.
are ye?"
Petravsky hesitated a moment, then
returned. "No. I have my pack here
But  don't  touch  it."
He placed the pack upon the
ground, but at a considerable distance
from the tramp, and went off to tlie
woods. Presently he returned with a
hoard  that  he   had   found.
"Here. You sit here, f got ropes
in my pack and I make it fast ami

twinge of severe pain seized his ankle.
Alter an hour of this laborious progress they came to a sheltered clump
��� ���I' trees that formed a comparatively
protected glad*. In lhe summer it
must have been a delightful spot;
this night it broke the force of the
wind and the interlacing branches
overhead formed a roof that promised shelter in case it snowed during
thc night. Petravsky pulled the tramp
tei a speit where the snow lay thinnest
upon the ground and propped him up
against a tree, ile then gathered an
arnifull of twigs and branches and
built a fire. Ile bathed the tramp's
ankle in sneiw and rubbed it until the
blood began to circulate more freely,
and then bandaged it with a piece of
woolen cloth freem his pack.
"Have yem got  hunger?" he asked.
"Hunger!" cried the tramp huskily.
"I'm  nearly   starved."
The Jew produced senile sine iked
meal and bread and an apple and set
them befeere the tramp. Then he took
out his candle-holder. The tramp had
taken a greedy mouthful eef the food,
hut now he suddenly stopped eaiing
and after a moment's hesitation, in a
softened, halting voice, saiel ;
"Say. I ain't goin't t' take all yer
grub. C'linc on an' eal'"
The Jew shoeik bis head. "After.
Not now. Yem eat all you like, and
I  eat was is uver."
He set the candle-holder iipem the
greeund and. it being the second day
of Hannukah. he placed two candles
in it, beginning freim the right, and,
afler lighting them, he recited the
Hebrew psalm,
"This is the day which the Lord
hath made; we will rejoice and bc
glad in ill"
As his voice rose in the sonorous
chant, the tramp ceased eating to
watch him. The Jew- was standing
upright, his figure sharply silhouetted
againsl the field of whiteness that lay
beyond the trees. Ile had entirely
forgotten the presence of the tramp;
had entirely forgotten that he had
hist his way and was destined tei a
night of hardship in the open wintry
air. Ilis mind anil his heart and his
soul were all singing the psalm, the
old   psalm   that   was   sung   when   the
world was young,���
"I hive the Lord, because Ile hath
heard my voice and my supplications.    .    .    .
"The Lord is on my side; I will
not fear; what call man do iintei mc?"
Out of lhe darkness, with a clamorous roar, thundered a railroad
train���the track ran close by���and in
a twinkling a stream of brightness
and of warmth flashed by and vanished, and its noise faded away into
a faint, distant rumble, above which
the tramp could hear the rise and fall
of the Jew's prayer. Thc fire had
burned low. The glade was all in
darkness save where the starlight,
sifting through the branches overhead, fell upon the Jew's head, crowning  with  silvery  radiances.
His prayer ended, Petravsky laid
himself upon his pack and fell sound
asleep. In half an hour he should have
awakened and extinguished the lights,
for such is the law. But he was too
tired; the day's work had exhausted
him. far, far away, as in a dream,
he thought lie heard a voice say :
"That's right. Take a sleep. I'll look
after the lights." But he was too
fatigued tee heed. During the night a
-light sound, jarring upon his dreams,
woke him. and he sat up with a start.
The tramp had dragged himself from
tin- place where Petravsky had left
him and sat upon the ground before
lhe lighted candles, holding out the
(olds "f the ulster he had steilen to
shelter lhe flickering flames from the
breeze
The nexl morning Petravsky
shouldered  his pack.
V u stay here." he said, "I go to
the first lieeusi- and send somebody.
But the overcoat is mine."
The tramp nodded, in a friendly
Fashion Petravsky had little difficulty
in finding help for the tramp, and in
less than an hour a wagon was on the
the way to the spot thai had been described. The pedler would have liked
tei accompany the wagon, but he
could not afford the time. There was
his family in Southern Poland. So he
trudged on. TEN

CANADIAN MINERAL RUBBER
AGENT IS ARRESTED
All   the   Paving   Companies   Had   a
Strong Lobby at Saanich
When the question of permanent
paving was first discussed in South
Vancouver, the "Chinook" published
an article relating tei the tactics usually employed by the Canadian. Mineral Rubber Company, a Canadian
off-shoot of a big American paving
corporation, and warning South Vancouver councillors to stear clear of
the agents employed by this concern.
Xo ihiubt considering to some extent the "Chinook's" warning, the
municipality has not purchased one
foot of the company's pavement,
though over $2,IXH1.()(>0 is being spent
on other classes of permanent pavement.
In this connection the following
news despatch from Victoria will be
of interest to the ratepayers :
H. P. Winsby was arrested this
afternoon on complaint of Chief Constable Hugh Little, he being charged
with attempting to bribe Councillor
Quick, of Saanich, by offering him
$5,000 to vote at the next meeting
of the Council in favor of a motion
to change the paving specifications
from bitulithic  to asphaltic  concrete.
A warrant was issued for the arrest of I-'red A. Rand, representing
the Canadian Mineral Rubber Company, on a charge of aiding and abetting Winsby.
Wirisby was released on bail of
$2,500. Rand has not yet been arrested. Winsby gets a hearing at the
police court Thursday. He will be
defended by Mr. H. A. MacLean, K.C.
These developments are the sensational aftermath of a strong lobby at
the Saanich Council meetings maintained by rival  paving companies.

that the front foot basis at which

A rider was attached stating that
the accident would never have occurred if there had been gates on the
car.
Changes in Licences
The police committee, Wednesday,
decided upon three important alterations to the trades licence and traffic
bylaws, upon the suggestion of Chief
Jackson.
Previously the trades licence bylaw
has called for a fee of $100 per year
for a licence for any music hall,
dance hall, or any other place of entertainment. On the suggestion of
Chief Jackson it was decided
that the clause be altered to read :
"$100 for one year, or $50 for every
six months; $37.50 for three months;
$20 per month, or $5 per day."
It was also resolved that the
licence fee for soliciting orders in
the municipality, by persons who
have no place of business in Vancouver be reduced from $50 for each six
months, to $25  for  each  six months.
An amendment was also made to
the traffic bylaw to compel all vehicles travelling in the municipality to
be lighted between dusk and dawn.

"Seeing" a baseball game by sound

cannol understand, but there in Pittsburg as enthusiastic a rooter as exists,
who since 1901 has attended games,
and never seen a play. He is Charles
Knighl. whose blindness cannot dim
the charm eif the national game. "My
acute hearing enables me to follow
every detail of the piny." he said,
recently, in describing his method of
enjoying the game. "You see, my
sense of hearing i.s far better than
that of persons who have to use their
eyes, and I can hear the ball strike
the players' gloves antl tell exactly
what part of lhe field the ball is in.
By the yells or groans of the crowd
which follow good plays, hits, errors,
etc., I am able to keep track of the
events, and by quietly listening to
the conversation of fans about me 1
am kept posted on  the score."
