SOUTH VANCOUVER, B.C., CANADA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER \.V>].,
Price 5 cents
Hon. Dr. Young, Minister of Education, Snubs Members of
British Columbia School Trustees' Association at Victoria
Head of Educational Department Refuses to
Turn Up at Annual Convention in
Victoria���An Open Letter to the Honorable
Doctor from a South Vancouver Citizen
Who is Disappointed in Him
Sir,���1 am surry you did imt find it
convenient to honor with your presence a meeting of the School Trustee! uf liritish Columbia held in Vic-
teiria last week. You must be aware
that your absence bad the twofold
bail effect of���in the first place, detracting from the greatness of your
office, anil in the second place, belittling thc importance uf the franchise.
The office you hold, whether you
realize it or not is one in trust from
the people who look to you to keep
this province ever in the van of edu-
catlonal progress, and by your enthusiasm tu encourage mid crystalize
lhe highest ambitions uf the people
in all matters Coming within the
sphere  of  your  office.
Now, bow ceiuld you better understand the desires and expectations of
the people than through a convention of their direct representatives
elected to operate the machinery of
yuur department.
The trustees may be of humble
origin and their outlook on life may
be siimewhat narrow. 1 would assure you, however, thai they are in
earnest and while not expecting tei
turn the world upside down, they are
watchful of the future best interests
uf the rising generation.
There desires may be difficult to
satisfy and their objects not clearly
defined, but had you favored them
with your presence their deliberations
would; with the guidance of the
broader knowledge presumed to bc
associated with the Minister of Education, have been more beneficial to
the people they represent, to themselves, and would have enhanced in
the minds of all thinking men the
greatness of the office you at present  hold.
The inalienable rights of the people to voice their opinion by using
the franchise, you well know, is an
outstanding feature of our civilization, and the more importance the
people attach to this right, the great
er  and   mure   effective   is   our   social
progress,
Hy your failing to aekmiwleilge the
convention, yuu belittled the office uf
School trustee and treated with enn-
tumely  lhe  rights  e,f the people.
Trustees dei nol hold office by government patronage, neither is the
franchise a sup thrown to a restless
people.
My object in writing you, sir, is
not to unduly criticize your action
which may have sume justifiable explanation, out to draw your attention
to the bad effect such action has upon the mind uf the thinking public.
Yours respectfully,
"HUGO."
Smith Vancuuver, Oct. 25.

MR. DONALD BURGESS
HAS  NARROW  ESCAPE
Mostly About South  Vancouver
Bi, ������RAMBLER'
Many friends of Mr. Donald Burgess, manager of the South Vancouver builders' Supply Company, residing at the curlier of Sixty-first
Avenue and Prince Edward Street
are congratulating him upon his escape uninjured frum an automobile
accident   of  a   serious   character.
Striving to avoid automobile number 4256, Mr. Burgess ran his auto
into the window of the Fairview Grocery store at the corner of Sixth
Avenue and Granville Street, Tuesday night. It seems that Mr. Burgess was going up Granville Street
when the other auto, driven by unknown persons, turned out of Sixth
Avenue. In order to avoid a collision Mr. Burgess had to turn round
the other car and in his excitement
he put his foot on the accelerator in
place of lhe brake and plunged into
the store. The damage to the window is estimated at about $500 and
to the automobile about $200. The
persons who are supposed to be responsible for the accident drove off
befure the police arrived.

Reeve Kerr interviewed Hon. W.

nature of which has not been given

have some bearing upon the industrial  future  of  the  North   Arm.
For the purpose of assisting the

granting the North Fraser Harbor

MAIN STREET MEN
LOYALLY  SUPPORT
CIVIC  DEVELOPMENT
Main Street it is, and Main Street
it  will  be.
Such is the decision of the Main
Sireet Improvement Association,
Smith Vancouver, whu mel Monday
night to discuss matters relating tei
the develupnuiit of the une thoroughfare through Greater Vancuuver
which connects salt with fresh water.
South Vancouver councillors have
been interviewed un the niatier and
they have expressed their willingness
to stand up feir the name Main St.
as against the proposal to have the
street changed back to Westminster
Avenue.
They believe that "avenue" dues
um sound su much like business as
"slreel," and they have Other beliefs
in the matter which were advanced
by  many members.
That the IV C. K. R. should hasten
the building e.f the east and west ear-
line mi Wilson Reiad was the hupe of
lhe members of the association. This
will make an east and west thoroughfare from Kerrisdale right tei ihe
South  Vancouver  Municipal   Hall.
The association had been advised
that the Dominion Government had
purchased a site for a big post office
building at the ceimer of Wilson
road and Main street and this was
good news feer the members. It was
stated that work on this building
would be pushed ahead at the earliest
possible moment.
A large committee of more than
ten members was appointed to go into several important matters on behalf of the association.
This committee will secure an assessment of all property fronting on
Main street in South Vancouver. The
committee was also empowered to
take all the necessary steps to have
the name Main street retained. The
committee will also follow up the
proposal to move the False Creek
bridge from its present location on
Main street and have it span the
North Arm between South Vancouver and Richmond at the other ex-
tremitv of the  street.
With the opening of Westminster Road
and Kingsway to traffic cn September 30,
Vancouver aid New Westminster are now
connected with twelve miles of permanent
pavement of the best type. The re-grading
and widening made necessary many changes in the toll lead of the Telephone Company, which follows this route, and which
carries circuits to Collingwood, New Westminster, Seattle and points south and east.
Forty-two poles were moved in the South
Vancouver section, and at the corner of
Victoria Drive and Westminster Road four
higher poles had to be placed so that the
lead would clear the additional trolleys and
feeders for the double track of the B.C.
Electric Railway. The above shows the
work in progress at this point. <\TURDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1913.

THE WORKER'S PAGE
All  Communication! should be Addressed to "Tne Labor Editor"
That the miners on Vancouver Island were justified in their original
demands for a more rigorous inspection of the mines is made only too
evident by the happenings of the past
two weeks.
The disasters in the Welsh and
Dawson mines, horrible in all sense
of the word, are only looked upon
as ordinary occurrences in the lives
of llieese who go down into the bowels
of the earth. The public have got so
used to these explosions, etc., that
they have got hardened into believing
that they cannot be avoided anil read
the accounts of the disaster almost
i without a shudder.
The average man who pays his $8
ia ton for coal and then gels told of
', the miserable pittance the miner re-
| ceives for the same wonders where
| the difference goes. But when he
! learns that coupled with that miser-
j able sum is the prospect of becoming maimed or killed in its production, he is apt to think there is some-
| thing wrong.
The average city worker being out
! of  touch  with  the  coal  miner,  some
[never even  seeing a mine, the ques-
' tion   is   never   brought   bottle   suffic-
iently strong to get his assistance in
legislation fe.r the betterment of conditions.
What legislation is on  the statute
: books has been put there entirely by
I the miners themselves, through their
unions and  their representatives.
Even in the Old Country where
i the miners have bad many prolonged
j struggles in the attempt to better
their conditions, the public have generally stood aloof and left the ques-
I tion severely alone as a subject tn be
Islnved by the miners themselves.
Thus only can wc understand the
1 apathy of the people in. Vancouver
i and on thc lower mainland with rc-
I garil to the miners' strike on Vancou-
j ver Island.
The subsidized press of ihe Province retail the alleged "horrors" that
I have taken place in the attempt of
! the miners to prevent men from losing their manhood. There being no
organs of sufficient strength outside
the labor press to give the true facts
of the case, the unthinking public are
easily blinded.
Apathetic as thc Old Country people are it is safe to say that the court
proceedings just finished would not bc
allowed to pass without a strong protest.
It is all very well to talk oi the liberty of the subject, but when that liberty is a menace lee the majority we
cannot understand how it should be
looked on as a crime to protect the
majority's  interests
When a dispute arises in the medical nr the legal profession, their
"unions," which arc perhaps the
strongest in the world, take steps to
effectually "kill off" the obnoxious
intruder, and it is generally sanctioned by the courts. But when an ordinary coal miner, untrained and unlearned in legalities anel ..ther formalities, uses a little persuasion in
his own way, lie is held Up as being
a criminal and one who is eenly safe
inside prison bars.
Meanwh.ie the Minister of Mines
(We do not know whether to take
this title as a jeike or not) is spouting
imperialism and hob-nobbing with
the powers that be in bis attempt to
divert attention freun the serious situation over on the Island.
It is time the people in Vancouver
were awakened to the true situation.
That their sympathy is with the miners is only too well known, but the
apathy tbat is shown in getting after
those responsible feir these conditions
is lamentable. A few straight, pointed questions to the various cabinet
ministers and the ''solid five" might
do a whole lot of good. Because a
man is a Conservative is no reason
for him losing his sense of humanity
and it might do the government a
lot of good to hear some opinion expressed from its supporters on this
momentous question.
Tom Mann, speaking in Vancouver
a fortnight ago made a very pert remark   on   industrial   conditions   here.
It are often told of the strenuous
conditions and long hours of labor in
the Old Land and his statement came
I., s.eme as an eye-eipener. He said
that "an/ man coming out to Canada, having enjoyed the benefit of the
Saturday afternoon half-holiday at
home, should be soundly kicked if
he reverts to the other way." While
not agreeing with the kicking method,
still it is evident tbat a deal of education and "agitation" is necessary
among the workers in these parts to
awaken them to the benefits to be derived from the half-day. We think
it is safe to say that not more than
5 per cent, of the workers in the < >ld
Land forego the Saturday afternoon.
The Home Rule question is again
In the front in British peelities. It has
often appeared as on the eve of settlement but never yel���even . in the
days of Gladstone���lias the subject
been so much in the limelight.
Various causes can be assigned Fe r
the taciics of Cars n. a privy councillor by the way, and the government's statement that they are going to pass the bill this time and make
it law. Apart irom this there is a
new light on the horizon which is
hoi welcomed by cither of the two
parties, who sec a danger to themselves. Who is to get the Irish \"U
has been the titbit both the orthodox
parties have been fighting for ami
now that a new party has sprung up
which threatens to swamp them they
are united in attempting to suppress
it. It is the best sign that has appeared in this question yet and a
united Irish-Labor vote would have
more far-reaching consequences than
Home Rule or any mh.er kin. 1 of
rule. A brief pen picture of Jim Larkin.   the   leader   in   the   labor   move
ment  in   Ireland  is  taken  from    the
"Daily Citizen" of London, England:
"Big in inches, but bigger in heart,
Irish of the Irish, and a devout Catholic, "Jim" Larkin, who has been arrested again in Dublin, is a born
leader of men. Agitator and firebrand he is called, and his speeches
set down in cold print, are full no
doubt of wild and whirling phrases
judged, that is tei say, by conventional standards of the circumspect.
Even in the trade union movement
Larkin has been regarded as often
impulsively reckless. His Celtic temperament chafes under the necessity
of restrain, especially when he is ?ut-
ting what is���and twenty years hence
will be so regarded���an irresistible
case. But it would be a mistake to
judge James Larkin simply as a man
of words. If his language is intense,
it reflects but thc spirit of the man
of act ie ,n, prepared tei spend and be
spent in the cause of his fellows. With
true Irish love of lighting, Larkin is
never at the rear when the enemy is
in light. But he is capable of harder
work even than that of rousing an
audience tn enthusiasm by a vivid recital of iheir wrongs, In half a dozen
years he has given casual workers of
Dublin, and much of the Green Isle
besides,  an   idea   which  has     touched
s^ithem even as the visi'jn of Home
Rule never has, and which will persist and demand translation int'< action after Home Rule has become a
seiber and possibly disappointing reality. Organized under the banner
eif the Irish Transport Workers'
Union sre 20,000 men of the type most
difficult to bring under any sense of
discipline or combined action. It is
the personal magnetism of the leader
that has accomplished the miracle,
and the question remains : "Can the
work endure?" In great conferences
of trade unionists Larkin is apt to
be a "difficult" delegate. The spirit
of revolt is in his blood, but, like
every real leader, he has in him also
more than a touch of the autocrat,
benevolent, of course, but impatient
of other opinions. It would seem to
be Larkin's mission tei set men's
minds aflame, to give them an ideal
and  an  inspiration."
Montreal Trades and Labor Council has made requests to the provincial and civic authorities for the abolition of all employment bureaus except those under the control of the
city and the  province.
After a strenuous contest extending over eight months, the strike of
the photo engravers of Toronto has
been finally settled on a basis satisfactory to the union. During the contest scores of mechanics were brought
from Great Britain by the employers
to act  as  strikebreakers.    Several  of
these were ilepejrted by the government, alter determined protest by the
local union, backed by all organized
labor. A very large per cent, of these
importations, however, upon being informed of the real situation deserted
their employers and became members
oi the union. The International
Union of Photo Engravers has rendered splendid assistenee to the
strikers, and during the greater portion of the time paid tn the strikers
$14 per  week each.

The Bonnie Purple Heather
Sandy has a guid word for a certain minister an' has a tilt at the
Labor Commisshun
Weel freens, Wance again sit I me
doein tae gie yae my weekly scribble.
I wis inteiidin' tae write an essay last
week on the "Sunday Closin' Act in
ils relashun tae the high cost o' livin,"
but it s.i happened that Thanksgivin'
cam iu the wey an weel 1 didna
feel owre guid efter the celebrasluins.
Tae gaun an' tak a big feed o' turkey
efter bein' accustomed mare or less
tae kale an' mince collops is no' owre
guid for a follies stamick, besides, as
yau ken, there's aye mare or less some
kin' n' etceteras in the shape o' bad
ceegars an' ither truck that's apt tae
pit a fellie off his usual.
Besides, when I cam tae consider
it, it's maybe jist as weel I didna
gie that essay last week for I see some
o' the sheipkeepers are threatenin' tae
appeal tae the coorts owre that bylaw
an 1 wudna for the life o' me let the
cooncil  think  I  wis influencin' them.
Hooever, I dinna intend tae gaun
intae that subject in the meantime,
it's mare or less o' a summer pastime
the Sunday Closin' Act, an' by thc
time anither warm spell comes roon
we micht hae anither bunch up at the
municeepal ball nei' sae "thick" wi' thc
kirk.
I wunner if nny o yae hae read a
speech delivered by a certain minister
o' the name o' Pringle.    I think it wis
I at Collinwud he spoke, hooever, that's
I naither here nor there.
I've nae brief for thc ministers or
their followers, but times they fellies
J come oot wi' some gey wholesome
truths. In fact 1 believe the ministers
are better  than  their  coiigregashuns.
e|e   *  *
As I wis sayin, for yince in a while
1 wis in complete agreement wi' the
ministry, an' I want lae gie the Rev.
Mr. Pringle every credit for haen the
same opeenyin as mysel.
His subject wis on hospitals an' the
learned gentleman cam oot very
strong on the necessity o' the state
takin' owre the chairge an' control
o' the general hospitals an' sanitariums, an' a richt guid address he gien
on the subject. He showed that he
had a deep interest in his study and
had jidged  it  frae  every standpint.
Noo, I dinna think there's a mare
pressin' questyin at thc present time
in this province than hospital management. I've nae Intenshun o' detractin'
frae the enormous guid the general
hospital in Vancoover an' ither cities
are daen, but it's patent tae everybody (except maybe the attorney-
general) that they by no means fill
the bill in attendin' tae the suffering
o' them that are disabled frae accident
or laid up on a bed o' seeckness.
The average workin1 man or woman
has enough tae dae the time they're
workin' providin' for everyday necessities an' when seeckness comes a-
long they're mare than likely found
tae be richt Up against it���an' through
nae faut o' their ain���tae provide the
wherewithal tae entitle their, or their
dependents trie a bed an' the necessary
medical attention in ony o' oor hospitals.
I wudna be faur wrang in sayin'
that the average workin' man's wages
dinna amount tae ony mare than $15
a week a' the year roon, an' it can bc
readily unncrstood that he disna stow
very muckle o' that magnificent sum
awa in a stockin' le��
Noo this government we hae owre

j shun durin' the illness o' some o' the
common   fnlk   that's   temporarily   in-
capacited, they think it is better left
tae public charity
Charity is a' richt at times but
there slinuld be nae need feir it in
"the banner province o' the Dominion," as oor ain worthy premier styles
it
If the government hinna got en-
eeiigh money lac institute an' provide
for the upkeep o' sic institushuns a
sma' yearly tax would easily defray
a' expenses. It wud be the means o'
savin' mony a precious human life
that's snuffed oot frae want o' proper
medical attenshun.
Here's tac vac. Mr. Pringle, keep at
it.    It's a subject o' the greatest importance here in the "golden west."
* it it
I wunner if ony o' yae noticed in
the papers last week a report o' a
sittin' o' the labor commishun. This
body has been galivantin' roon aboot
the province this last six or nine
months. They were ostensibly created tae investigate the labor problem
in the province tae see if it wis actually possible tae dae withoot Chinamen an' ither gentlemen o' that kidney, in developin' the "latent resources nf this province."
They keep a press correspondent
on their staff an' durin' the time they
hae been awa up in the heilants this
gentleman has regaled us wi' some
very eddyfyin' accoonts o' the wun-
nerfu province we hae the pleesure
tae live in I've often been tempted
tac ask what has that tae dae wi' the
labor questyin as we ken it doon here
in Vancoover
They've been nn the hike for weeks
at a stretch awa up in the wilderness
lookin' for laborers tae gie them ideas
is tae hoo tae remedy the labor problem Often they wud strike up a
fair sized toon where the populashun
wud amount tac aboot a dizen, in-
cludin' the mayor an' the keeper o'
the toon hall. They wuel investigate
thc condeeshuns o' labor in that pairt.
an' inquire if the garbage cnllector
wis gettin' the staundard rale o' wages. The press correspondent wud in-
corporate the result n' the investi-
gashun in his story tae the government   organ.     But   I'm   tempted   tae
ask again what has that tae dae wi'
the labor questyin as it affects Vancoover an' the lower mainland where
aboot ninety per cent, o' the labor
is dune.
Weel this commisshun has had a
sittin' in Vancoover an' they had wan
or twa n' the big lumbermen there
gien evidence. Wan fellie had the
gall tae tell them that lumber wis
bein' sold cheaper than it could be
produced an' that it wis cheaper than
it had been for years. He gave as
his reason the bad state o' the market
an' the HIGHER wages now bein'
peyed in the mills. In the same
brathe he admitted that Japs were
emphiyed in the mills at the rate o'
$175 a day. Nae wunner lumber's
sae dear. Fancy peyin' sic an extortionate wage as that.
Hooever, I've my ain opeenyin o'
lumber bein' cheap or no'. Jist tak
the noshun, or misfortune if yae like,
tae keep a wheen hens an' set tae bil-
din' a bit chicken hoose an' yaell sune
see whether it's cheap or no'. An'
aboot thc wages bein' higher than
they were���weel tell us anither.
Noo I think it's time this commisshun wis gettin' doon tae brass tacks.
What's the use o' interview-in' men o'
that kind wha wud mak them believe
they were actin' as philantrofists,
helpin' tae develop the glorious pos
sibilities of ��� what dae yae ca' it
again���"the last best west."

CENTRAL  PARLIAMENT
Liberal  Government  Came  Near Receiving Defeat.    Coalition With
Their   Friends,   the   Conservatives,    Only   Way   of   "Saving
Their Bacon"
Central Parliament again met in
session Tuesday night at the Municipal  Hall.
The following is a list of the members and their constituencies:
Mr.   Lamond       Atlin
Mr.   Pleming       Alberni
Mr.  Lewis       Cariboo
Mr. Cornish       Ymir
Mr.   Rankin       Comox

Mr. Payne     Richmond No. 1
Mr. Hilton    Vancouver No. 2
Mr.   Kavanagh   .'    Ladysmith
Mr.   Hurry       Yale
The members were all there in full
force and the spectators side of the
house was also occupied, among them
being a few members of the fair sex.
At the outset Mr. Page, member
for Kaslo, was asked lo take the
Speaker's chair.  Agreed to.
The  premier  at   the   outset  asked
the privilege of the house to make a
statement of the government's
icy.    Hc asked if it was the wish
the  house   that   they   revert  back   to
the King's Speech for further discussion or pass on and discuss the Fran-1
chise Act which was now printed and j
in the hands of the members.
Mr. Hill. Revelstoke, was instantly
on his feet making an attack on the
government for what he considered
was their lack of backbone. They
had brought in the "Sptech" and had
had it passed in the house, and now
they were asking the house to rccem-
sider it. It seemed to him they were
playing a deep game and were wanting to postpone the first reading of
lhe Franchise Act. which he said had
been pilfered from the cross-benches
in order to get some of the ladies up
there to strengthen their position.
Secretary of State Lamond in replying stated that the governmenl
had no ulterior motive in asking the
house to take up the speech again.
They wcre quite prepared to go along
with the next measure but the government had thought that perhaps
some of the new members would have
liked to discuss it. (Loud cheers
from   the   government  benches.)
Mr. Jacques, Victoria, said he would
support the government. Having
been in office last session he had been
made quite aware of the difficulties
attendant on a government, and especially   a   Liberal   government.
Mr. Hilton, Vancouver (21, while
not in favor of the "speech," said it
was desirable it be passed in order
to get it out of the  road.
Premier Pleming asked that the
question be now put. The division
hell having been rung several members of the Opposition arrived just
in time to save the government from
defeat. The Conservatives and Liberals voted solidly together and thc
cross-benches were defeated by two
votes.
Before thc vote was taken Mr. Rankin (Comox) asked the speaker's permission to make his position clear
in thc eyes of his constituents. He
had said hc would vote for the government to keep them in office but
after seeing the tactics displayed by
the opposition, he would vote with
the cross-benches. (Loud cheers from
Cross-benches.)
The Premier then asked leave of
the house to introduce Measure No.
1 of the King's Speech, viz., An Act
to extend the Franchise.
The Clerk of the House then read
the bill which i.s as  follows :
residence in the Province shall be an
essential qualification to exercise this
Franchise.
Clause 3.���All adults of and beyond
the full age of 21 years of foreign or
mill-British birth may exercise this
franchise on being accepted as a naturalized British subject by the regularly  appointed  government  officers.
Clause 4.���All persons of non-
British birth domiciled in Canada for
3 years may obtain naturalization papers hy complying with the statutory
requirements.
Clause 5.���The adoption of this
Act shall, and does grant, to all qualified persons all the rights and privileges now enjoyed by those to whom
the Franchise is at present extended.

caught in his own net, and his inconsistency, one might almost say insincerity,   exposed.
AN
ACT    TO    EXTEND
FRANCHISE
GOD SAVE THE KING	
The lirst reading of the bill was
passed, the cross-benches declining
to vote.
The premier then moved that the
house go into Committee of thc
Whole to discuss the various clauses.
Agreed  to.
The house  having gone into committee,   Premier   Pleming  said    they
were  only  fulfilling  their  pledge    to
the country in making this, the first
measure   on   their   programme.     Hc
felt sure the bill would have the sup-
*e ,a   port of all parties and would go down
|P�� j! in  history  as  the  greatest  piece  of
1  "    legislation   ever   introduced.   (Uproar
on the cross-.benches.)
Mr. Hill stated that he would introduce amendments to the measure
later on, but wished to point out in
the meantime that the very first
clause of the bill was sufficient to
condemn it. The words "not otherwise disqualified" practically precluded the women ever getting the vote.
Mr. Kavanagh (Ladysmith) made
a telling speech against the government. He spoke as a Socialist member and said he wished to draw the
mask away (torn thc Liberal government. Personally, he rather liked the
Conservatives. They were al least
honest in opposing them hut the Liberals ran under so many different
names that they were not to bc trusted. (Loud cheers from the cross-
benches.)
Secretary of State Lainond spoke
strongly in faver of the bill and said
it was from a strong point of duty
thc bill had been introduced. He
showed at some length the disabilities the women had worked under
in the past, and even put in a plea for
the "militants," instancing how the
male population had adopted similar
tactics before the passing of the Reform Bill.
Mr. Rankin. Comox. asked when it
was that the Liberals had got so enthusiastic on Women Suffrage. It
seemed like irony in the Secretary of
State suggesting they get one or two
prominent women up to "educate"
them on the question. The cross-
benches had been "educated" now
quite a long time.
Mr. Hilton spoke adversely on the
measure.
Mr. Rankin moved the debate stand
adjourned.    Agreed to.
The committee rose and reported
progress.
The house then went into committee on Ways and Means and various
bills were  ordered to be paid.
Premier Pleming stated he intended getting one or two of the more
prominent women in the movement
up next Tuesday to address the
house.
Mr. Rankin meeved that three-quarters of an hour be given them in
which to state their case. Agreed
to.
The house then adjourned to meet
Tuesdav first, Municipal Hall, at 7.45
THE'p.m.
Inconsistency  Alleged  upon  part  of
Talkative   Mr.  Thomas
After advocating in season and out i
eef season that the will of the people!
should  rule  in  all  municipal affairs; j
after threat "iling to resign, not once,'
but  scores  of times  during  the  past:
two   years���but   never   carrying   out i
his  threats���"to give the people who :
elected  me," as  lie puts it, a chance j
to   settle   disputes   between     himself i
and   his   colleagues   on   the     council.
Councillor Thomas  found  himself  in i
a quandary on Tuesdav last when he i
had   an   opportunity   to  vote  for   the
second reading of a  Referendum by- j
lay   to  ascertain   whether  thc  people
whom he says should rule desire the
ward system to continue or not.
Apparently Councillor 'i homas does
not desire the people to decide this
most important question. On Tuesday last he spoke strongly against
the proposal to submit the matter to
a vote of the people. He said he did
not believe in the abolition of the
ward system and he did not approve
of the Referendum bylaw because,
he said, there was no demand from
the ratepayers for the abolition of the
ward system.
Reminded by Councillor Dickinson   that   "to   abolish   the   ward   sys-
THOMAS DOOKS MAY
RUN AGAINST
COUNCILLOR THOMAS
Councillor Thomas will have a
light this election, if signs go for any-
lliing, and his opponent will likely
lie Mr. Thomas Dook6, 36 Forty-
eighth Avenue West. Mr. Dooks has
been approached by many friends to
contest the Ward against the venerable councillor, and he will likely
consent, it is said.
Mr. Dooks has been for some years
a ratepayer and resident of South
Vancomcr and is popular among the
workingmen, one of whom he happens to be.
In an interview with the "Chinook"
Mr. Dooks strongly criticized the
policy of the present council, and declared that a whole lot of the trouble
rested with the people of Ward 5,
who hitherto had shown little interest in the conduct of municipal affairs.
COLLINGWOOD   PARLIAMENT
Liberal   Ministry   Defeated���Premier   Resigns���Conservatives   Take
Office.    Mr. Tom Todrick Prime   Minister���The   Immigration���
"Education Test"   Puts the  Conservatives in Power.   .   The
New Cabinet
This coming Saturday night will
find Mr. Tom 'l odrick and his Conservative colleagues occupying the
ministerial benches of the Collingwood Parliament. Mr. William Morris and the "Grits" have been relegated to "the cold shades of opposition."
The Immigration "Education Test"
amended did lhe business, the house
wouldn't have it, not only "the cross
benches" but several members joined the Conservatives "agin thc government." The amendment to the
Immigration Act was badly drawn.
It was technically faulty and the test
proposed would not have the effect
of keeping out of the Dominion those
who are "undesirable." Nevertheless,
the amendment gave rise to an excellent debate, giving some young members the chance for maiden speeches.
Mr. Lester, thc member for Grand
Forks, made an admirable speech in
which he pointed out the difficulties
of administration if the test were put
in force. Mr. Wilbers, the member
for Alberni, also made a capital speech
in which he said that Canada had a
right to demand that those who came
to live in such an ambitious dominion should have intellectual aspirations as well as physical fitness and
moral character It was amusing to
hear Mr. Morris and a few others
protest against the possibility of any
immigration official being "s ��� eel lo
undue influence" or guilt" of "graft."
Everybody knows that all Canadian
officials are angels of purity, the only
thing that puzzles us is, how do they
conceal their wings? In the debate
Mr. Tom Todrick took the leading
part, going for the faults of the government measure in a merciless manner in which he displayed much technical knowledge.
Mr. W. H. Kent was absent. Mr.
G. L. Robinson was in the chair of
"Mr. Speaker," and he did well.
The government being defeated Mr.
Morris gracefully tendered his resignation. There was an attempt to get
the   members   on   the   cross   benches
into eeffice, but as one member grace
fully said, they "were not bavin..
any." Mr Tom Todrick accepted th'
reins of office and associated will
him will be Messrs. H. M. Smith
Hilton, Chaffey, C. T. Bailey am
others. The full cabinet will be announced  on  Saturday  night.
This Collingwood Parliament is at

about that. Ladies attend to gatln
"pointers" for the lime when thej
may be M.Ps. The strangers gallen
is well tilled. The answers to qu��-
tions sometimes convey useful infeu
illation. For instance on Saturday,
night Mr. Wilbers informed the hoiis
that the average number of striki
(in B. C?) had been 108 per annul
and the men had lost, per annui
over two million working days a yeai
at an average of $3 per day per mai
Strikes must prove very expensiv
Mr. Wilbers also told the house, i
answer to a question that the la-
census showed British Columbia i
have a male population of 114,160 an
a female population of 64,497. So w
can do with a few more females n
the species yet." The new Prim
Minister also answered some ques
tions. He is not yet well up iu tii
topography of Vancouver. A well
informed guide could doubtless intn
dure him to a district of which li
has at present no knowledge. Th
new government will, from time I
time, be "hauled over the coals" h
the member for Comox, and the ne
governmenl will also at once n
doubt, send off that fifty millions fi
the British navy. Where the mom
will  come  from may puzzle some.

A lady with a line figure, having
taken a fancy to a ring which she saw
ticketed in a shop window, went inside to examine it. "It is exceedingly
lovely, I wish it were mine," she said
on satisfying herself. "What smaller
figure  will  tempt you?"
"No either figure than the figure before me," he said, giving her an admiring bulk at the same time; "it is
exceedingly lovely. 1 wish 1 could
tempt you  with the ring."
"1 think I'll take it," she said, laying down the money, amidst blushes.
Of course he accepted the money,
but, getting her address, he made
such good use of thc hint that the
next ring which she got was given
by him in church.

MORE NEIGHBORLINESS
SECRETARY BLAIR, of the Vancouver Board of
Trade told the South Vancouver Board Monday
night that there was not enough neighborliness between
the Vancouver Board of Trade and the Boards of the
municipalities round about. In view of the fact that
Mr. F. L. Carter-Cotton, M.P.P.. for Richmond, of
which electoral district South Vancouver forms the
major part, is president of the Vancouver Board of
Trade, it would seem strange if the South Vancouver
Board of Trade is not on the most frienc"y terms
with the Vancouver Board of Trade.
Laying all jokes aside, however, the impression
seems to have got abroad that the Vancouver Board
of Trade is a most select and exclusive body operated
for the particular benefit of a certain class of reliable,
old-fashioned Vancouver business men. Now, this
is not the fact. Secretary Blair told the business men
of South Vancouver, Monday night, that the Vancouver Board of Trade has a total membership of 650
men. It is an institution for the furtherance of the
commercial interests of Vancouver, and in this work,
the Vancouver Board of Trade asks for the co-operation and support of all the Boards of Trade on the
Peninsula.
Secretary Blair stated that it had been his pleasure
some few days ago to refer a certain manufacturer
looking for a factory site lo South Vancouver. In
forty-eight hours after landing here that gentleman
had completed negotiations for the necessary river
frontage upon which he will build his factory.
"We want reciprocity between the municipalities
and the city," stated the Vancouver secretary. "What
is your interests, ours are also. We recognize in Vancouver that the only remaining cheap industrial sites
on this peninsula are right down here on the North
Arm of the Fraser River. It has been my pleasure to
refer several concerns to South Vancouver. Daily,
we are in receipt of many letters from all over the
land from manufacturers looking for locations on this
coast. It will be possible for us to send a great many
industries to your municipality. The new United
States tariff measures are driving many factories out
of business below the line. A cotton concern, from
California, employing 400 hands, among others, wishes to locate near Vancouver. We of the Vancouver
Board of Trade wish to see South Vancouver and
every municipality round about prosper. For your
prosperity is our prosperity, and we heartily invite
you to attend our meetings and exchange ideas wilh
us."
In initiating this scheme, the South Vancouver
Board of Trade displayed good judgment, and if it is
carried out on the proper lines a great good will undoubtedly result to the people of British Columbia.
Since the idea of forming a public utilities board was
first outlined, conditions have arisen in South Vancouver, Vancouver and throughout the Lower Mainland which demand the bringing into existence of
some sort of machinery for the protection of the owners of great public utilities and the people who must
pay the corporations' dividends.
It might be well if all the municipalities of British
Columbia were to club together in this matter for the
purpose of appointing a permanent public utilities
board. Probably the best plan would be to have all
the dealings between municipalities and the street railway and other public utility concerns whose interests
are not tied Up in one particular district pass through
the hands of such a commission. The members of
such a board would specialize on the subject of public
utilities, and the powers of all the British Columbia
municipalities as regards public utilities operating
within their boundaries might to a reasonable extent
be concentrated in this board. The people might lay
their grievances before the commissioners who would
be in a position to give speedy action upon the same.
It would cut out a lot of wasted time and money.. Its
value to the Province would be proportionate to the
value of the Federal Railway Commission to the Dominion of Canada.
The South Vancouver Board of Trade very wisely
attaches much importance to the question of the proper handling of "public utilities." Messrs. Whelpton.
Bruce and Allan are on the committee of the Board
dealing with this matter���Gentlemen of acumen and
common sense, who will take a broad, sensible view
of the matter. The question is complex and difficult
and the average taxpayer needs enlightening as to
what the cities have done with their "public utilities."
It will be found that late in the day they have started
to remedy evils South Vancouver has the opportunity
of preventing from the start.
..!
MAIN STREET'S PROGRESS
WHEN an industry is brought lo South Vancouver, an endless chain of good is thc result, and
thc efforts of the Main Street Improvement Association and its very active member, Mr. R. M. Robson,
are worthy of special mention at this particular time,
Today, workmen are engaged at the foot of Main
Street, building a factory for a large tannery concern,
and soon a start will be made in the same locality upon
the construction of a building to house a large rubber
industry. This means that the nucleus of a factory-
centre has been started on the North Arm of the
Fraser at the foot of Main Street.
Through the efforts of the business men of Main
Street, the postal service in that particular quarter of
the municipality is to be improved. In Vancouver, at the
corner of Eighteenth Avenue, a great new post office
building is being erected. At the corner of Main and
Wilson Road another new Government building is to
be located. Then, near the foot of the street, there is
Grimmett Post Office. Mail delivery twice daily is
given throughout the length of the street practically.
What Main Street is doing, Fraser Street might
also, not only imitate, but improve upon. And so
might others of the more important thoroughfares
throughout this section of Greater Vancouver related
to the North Arm of the Fraser River.
SOUTH  VANCOUVER AND   THE  SCHOOLS
CONVENTION
AT the School Trustees' Convention at Victoria
South Vancouver played no inconsiderable
part. Mr. Whelpton, chairman of the South Vancouver Board attended with Trustee Morris and Trustee
McArthur. The last named gentleman has devoted
many years to educational and social work and this
fact was recognized by electing him first vice-president.
If Mr. J. C. McArthur regains his old-time strength
and vigor���and we sincerely hope he may do so���
when the convention next assembles at Nelson, the
genial official from South Vancouver will be found
to well sustain the role for which he has been cast.
To South Vancouver the credit is largely due for
the passing of the following resolution :
"In view of the vast agricultural possibilities afforded in this Province, and also having in mind the great
and continuous source of wealth which the development of such possibilities offer, this Convention is resolved that, while not disparaging the encouragement
given to immigration, every effort should be made to
induce the children of our schools to realize the splendid opportunities contained in the scientific cultivation
of the soil. To further this end and to elevate agricultural pursuits in the minds of the people, we, the
School Trustees, in Convention, urge the Government
to include in the school curriculum elementary instruc
tion on the lines of scientific farming."
It will be remembered that not only did the South
Vancouver School Trustees bring this matter forward and discuss it with zeal and ability, but Mr.
Morris took this resolution to the Collingwood llusi-
ness Men's Association���that body endorsed it and
recommended it to thc School Convention, thus gaining for South Vancouver credit for being well abreast
of modern methods of practical education. Tlie Victoria journals show ample evidence that "the island"
welcomes and respects the intellectual lights of South
Vancouver.

THERE IS much to be said in favor of Premier Morris' advocacy at the Collingwood Parliament the other
day of an educational test for immigrants landing in
Canada. In some, if not all, of the Australia states
or provinces a language test is applied of such a stringent character that it has effectually checked the
Oriental invasion. It might be suggested, as regards
this province, that the correct English pronunciation
of "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper"
would prove a fine test. It is remarkable that there
is not one in a thousand Chinese or Japs who can correctly pronounce this simple sentence.
* �� *
APPROPOS of this Oriental invasion it is announced that General William Bramwell Booth is on his
way to the States and Canada to procure Salvationists
as volunteers for China and Japan. As General Booth
is coming to Vancouver it would be a good thing if
Mr. H. H, Stevens, M.P., could arrange for these
missionaries to take a few thousand Orientals from
[i. C. back to their own countries. It was stated last
week by the president of a Chinese Association in Victoria that there were "thousands of Chinese in B. C.
"unemployed and starving." Here is a chance for Mr.
Stevens to "save" his reputation in this world if not his
soul in the next.

Hang the Expense!

A youth living at West Liverpool, N. J., sold the
family cow in order to get money enough to pay his

This is even worse than mortgaging the house to buy
an automobile.    The modern  seeker after pleasure

A man who survived the Titanic disaster has been

1-<jr, shortly before the party was
ready tn let OBt, Arnold had received a message frum his brother, who
seemed to be well informed as to
the intentions of the Cantons, asking

at   the   Burgundian
At the Gates of Bale
The days that elapsed between the
arrival of the I'hilipsons at Gierstein I
and the departure therefrom of the
Swiss delegation, while few, had been
enough to make Arthur realize that
hc had lost his heart to the mountain
maiden.
Anne and her attendants wcre
mounted upon asses whose slow steps
scarce kept pace with the baggage
mules. Arthur would have considered it no hardship to have occasionally assisted Anne in her journey and
would have enjoyed an opportunity
to converse with her, but was prevented from showing her any attentions by the customs of the country,
which customs even Rudolph did nut
venture to infringe.
At length the delegation came to
the city of Bale. The authorities of
that city had received orders from
Count Archibald, of Ilagenback. whei
commanded for the Duke in that region, that the Swiss should not be
received into the city, the sovereignty
of which was then in contention between the Federated Cantons and
Hurgundy.
Sentries at Graffslust
But at some distance from the city,
in the half-ruinous castle of Graffslust,
the burghers of Hale had prepared a
resting place and abundant entertainment for the  delegation.
The castle, though falling to ruin,

night the escort of young Switzers

In it was even a small altar, surmounted by an iron cross of curious
workmanship.

retired, upon the arrival e,f the travellers al Graffslust, pleading fatigue
from the journey.
The delegates, after freely partaking eef the femd and drink furnished
them by the burghers of Bale, retired
to rest also, and thc young men set
their sentries and formed their bands
of scouts, who wcre tn patrol the circumference of the castle beyond the
drawbridge.
Near the Hour of Midnight
It was near the hour of midnight
when Arthur, who had insisted upon
sharing the military duties of the escort and was stationed as sentry at
the castle end of the drawbridge, saw
a female form lit by him and pass on
into the wood beyond.
Even in the dim light he knew that
it was the form of Anne of Gierstein.
His orders had been to allow no one
to enter the ca6tle without giving the
password, but nothing had been said
concerning egress from the place.
Therefore he did not challenge the
apparition which, to say the truth,
flitted by him, aptiearing to his amazed senses more like a spirit of lhe
night than a thing of flesh and blood.
"No," hc reasoned as soon as he
was able to collect his wits, "it
could not be Anne���and if it were,
what tryst went she forth in the
woods?" A pang of jealous rage
shot through him.
"Nothing But a Bush"
Just at that time came the man who

It appeared that the Counts of Arn-

father to son, been addicted to secret
studies  and  dabblers  in  magic.
The last Count of Anhclni bad married thc daughter of a mysterious
Egyptian, or Arabian sorcerer, tn

The Arabian disappeared, and his
daughter, after giving birth to a female child, had been mysteriously resolved into a handful of dust on the
very day of the child's christening.

"A Convoy of Smugglers"
Rudolph affected to disbelieve these
weird legends, but admitted nevertheless, that there was something inexplicable in the ancestry of Anne of
Gierstein.
Arthur saw in the Counts of Arn-
hel 111 only men who had been, in
scholarship, in advance of their times,
and rejected the wild tales with
which in all times the ignorant surround those whom they cannot understand.
Still he was troubled and perplexed by that night's vision and was still
further mystified when, in the morning, Anne appeared and gretted him
as if nothing had disturbed her slumbers.
With the day friendly scouts brought
word to the castle that Archibald de
Hagenbach was preparing to arrest,
plunder and probably kill the envoys
when they arrived at his stronghold of
Brisach, under the plea that they were
convoying English merchants, who
were smuggling goods into Burgan-
dy against the edict of the Duke.
Prisoners of De Hagenbach
Unwilling lo be the cause of danger to the Swiss envoys, Philipson
and his son took leave of the delegates and pushing on ahead of them,
reached the city where the fierce and
bloody Dc Hagenbach    held sway.
Count Archibald had thc travellers
brought before him, and fiercely rating them, ordered their imprisonment.
PnnTpSon declared that he was on
a   mission   of  great     importance    tei
Charles of Burgundy, who knew of
his  being on   the  way  to  Dijou, and
I would take vengeance upon any one
��i" 1 troubled him,
"Search the thieves!" cried De lla-
I genhach, and having disarmed Arthur
and his father, they toeik from the
latter a leiilhern case containing a
diamond necklace of immense value
l)i Hagenbach seized il, and llie'
I'hilipsons were dragged away In their
separate   dungeons.
Dead Men Tell No Tales
"Ila, so this was on its way tee
Charles," said the Governor, gloating
eevetr the diamonds. "Perhaps tlie "hi
merchant tells the truth, and if we
let him continue on his way to Dijon
he might, did wc retain this necklace,
make things unpleasant for us with
our lord and master the Duke. Yet
such plunder as this is too good to
lose."
"Dead men tell no tales," replied
Killian, the trusted squire and confidant of Sir Archibald. "If these men
die in our dungeons, why, we have
never seen them���nor these diamonds
either, in spite of what rumors base
churls of Switzers may set on foot
against us.   We have the Duke's ear."
"Let them die in an hour," replied
De Hagenbach, placing the diamonds
in his breast.
Planning Treachery
A scaffold was erected in the market place and, gathering together all
his own men. Dc Hagenbach also
forced the burghers to take arms and
help  swell  the garrison of the city.
The fierce knight had determined
to plunder the Swiss envoys, to overpower their guard, to create a riot
and, under the pretext that the Switzers had attempted to seize the city
by force, to arrest and kill them.
He knew that lurking in the neighborhood was a considerable body of
fiery young Balese whom the elders
of Bale wcre unable to control and
who, if given opportunity, would attempt a rescue of thc envoys. But he
trusted to his strong walls and strong
garrison.
As the Governor was giving his orders for this reception of the envoys,
a   deep  voice   behind   him   said:    "I

Burgundy to the Rescue
"W'e are deputies," answered Arnold Biederman, "from the towns of
Berne and Soleure and the Cantons
of  Uri  Schwytz  and    Unterwalden,
bound on an embassy to the gracious
Duke  of   Burgundv  and  Lorraine."
"What teiwns. What cantons?"
cried De Hagenbach. in rage. "I know
of none such. You are rebels against
the authority of the Duke of Austria.
"Know ye lhat yc go not to Burgundy at all or go in fetters with
halters around your necks. So hoi

That had been the signal arranged
by the Governor for the emsct of his
men upon the Swiss. The delegates,
encompassed and overmatched by the
soldiers, who now showed een every
hand pressing teewaril them, stoeeil
back to back, while the young Swiss
of the guard drew their weapons and
prepared te> sell  their lives dearly.
But e,n a sudden there came the
cry of "Treason! Treason!" and De
Hagenbach and the soldiery hesitated.
On His Own Scaffold
The Balese who had been lurking
in the neighborhood hail been secretly admitted into the citv and bad made
common cause with thc citizens who
had revolted against the ruthless
Governor.
The whole thing had been arranged by the Black Priest of St. Paul's,
who now appeared upon the scene.
The soldiers of De Hagenbach were
overpowered and disarmed, and the
knight himself seized and bound. He
was carried to the scaffold, where
the common executioner struck off
his   head.
And in the market place also now
appeared Arthur Philipson and his
father, who ha.-l been liberated from
prison by this same Black Priest of
St. Paul's.
When the head eif Dc Hagenbach
rolled in the dust the chief burghers
',f the  city mounted the  scaffold and

The Lady in the  Mask
As llie Philips..ns. mounted upon
horseback, and their guide on foot,
were proceeding along the road which
ran by the right bank of the Rhine,
ihey were overtaken by what was.
apparently, the patty of a young lady
of rank out upon her palfrey in pursuit of the popular pastime of hawking.
Before the two parties are brought
together it should be said that, after
the excitement of the events at Bris-
ach. Arthur Philipson had sought in
vain for a sight of Anne of Gierstein.
In reply to his guarded inquiries,
Arnold had said that she had been
sent to a place where she would remain in safety until the times were
less troublous.
But now, as the hawking party
came up with the Phillpsons, Arthur
could have sworn that in the richly
dressed young lady, with her hawk
upon her gauntleted wrist, attended
by her falconer and a half-dozen
mounted men-at-arms (which the
state of thc country rendered necessary as a guard), he recognized Anne
of Gierstein.
Indifferent Sport
A black vizard concealed her features, as was thc custom in those days
when young ladies of quality rode
abroad. But the form and air were
that of the maiden of the mountains.
Yet both she and her attendants
were dressed in the German manner.
Arthur thought of the strange story
of Anne's ancestry and of his experience that night when he kept
guard on the drawbridge at ruined
Graffslust���and   was   bewildered.

night determined to consult my opinion  and  not  his as  to our  places  of
repose and the direction "f our journey."
Escaping Many Plots
Without explaining whom the
yuung lady had recently parted company seemed in his eyts to resemble.
Arthur told his father that she had
whispered to him that ihey ought to
take the road lo Strasburg by the
eastern side of the river, and for that
purpose cross over at a place called
jKirchoff.
After considering the matter, the
elder Philipson decided that Arthur
should take the road advised by the
unknown maiden while he himself
would continue on by the right bank
of the river. Thus one of them
would be sure to arrive at the court
of Charles and present to him the
business upon which ihey journeyed
to the Duke's capital.
After escaping many plots laid
against him by secret foes, the elder
Philipson at length arrived at Strasburg Several times upon the journey-he encountered in the most unexpected places the Black Priest of | kill
St. Paul's, and everywhere this
strange man seemed to exercise the
power and inspire the same terror
as at  Brisach.
And it was the Black Priest, apparently, who watched over Philipson
and rescued him from the many
perils he encountered on the journey.
Welcomed with Blushes
In the meantime Arthur, pursuing
his journey upon the left bank of the
river, came one day toward evening
Io a great castle situated near tlie village, and in front of the castle saw,
to Ilis amazement, Annette, the attendant of Anne of Gierstein.
His heart throbbed as he asked the
girl if Anne was in the neighborhood.
Annette answered that "The noble
and high-born lady, Anne. Countess
of Arnheim," was in residence at thej thus anel his
castle; conducted htm thither and. inlceeds of the
the countess, he recognized Anne
Gierstein.
Anne welcomed Arthur with diffidence and blushes, but finally assumed a more formal and -lately manner.
The village was occupied by a band
of mercenary soldiers in the pay oi
the empire, and it would not be safe
for Arthur to venture among them,
as they were mutinous, not having
of late received their pay.
Anne explained many things. Ii
had, indeed, been she whom Arthur
had seen go out of Graffslusl thai
nighl when he kepi watch at tlie draw-
dridge.
Seme Mysteries Explained
A  messenger from lur  father  had ���
got word to her that she should nn et i
him in tlie woods that night, and she I
had   obeyed   the   paternal   injunction.!
In   that  interview  it  had  been  arranged   that   Count   Albeit   should  re- \

Parting   Forever
When Arthur spoke eif Rudolph
Donnerhugel Anne told him frankly
tbat while Rudolph had been a suitor
for hcr hand, neither shc nor her uncle had given him any encouragement
and she could never be his wife.
While they talked the steward came
in excitedly to say that the soldiers
had broken out into open revolt and
would attack the castle early the nexl
morning.
To defend the huge edifice with so
small a number of retainers as could
be mustered by Anne was impossible.
,1  the
Peace  Impossible
seeming merchant found ready
to the great Duke, for Philip-
Men was, in fact, the Earl of Oxford
of the proud race of the de Veres and
Arthur his heir lee that great title.
The Earl had found defeat, poverty
and exile in the service of the House
..I Lancaster and had r.eew been sent
by the exiled and dethroned Queen,
.Margaret of Anjou, to endeavor tfl induce the Duke to furnish men and
means in aid of a Lancastrian descent
upon England.
The diamond necklace was sent by
Margaret as a token tei Charles and
wa' t.i be as bis pledge for the men
and   money  he  should   furnish.
Bin Charles declared that he would
do nothing until lie had chastised the
(Swiss. He declared he would hang
the Swiss delegates when they should
arrive at Dijon, and it was only the
influence of the Earl of Oxfeerd that
prevented him from carrying ��Ut his
threat.
Finding peace impossible the envoys made a formal declaration of
war and returned to their mountains,
ihen began that war against the Cantons in which the great Duke was
:1 and thc power of Burgundy

With the  Passing  Years
Amid llie forces of the y mug claimant of Tie Dukedom tti Lorraine, who
joined witli the Swiss, re.de a warrior
wh.. had vowed the death eef Charles,
and whe.se death the Duke had sworn.
He was Albert von Grierstein, once
the Black Priest of St. Paul's and
hea'd fi ihe Secret Tribunal, so bated
by the Duke. He was now released
from his priestly vows and took the
field  in  armeer.
Both he and Charles were killed in
the last battle between the Swiss and
the   Burgundians.
Margaret e.f Anj.ui died and bequeathed thc diamond necklace to Ar-
fathcr. With the pro-

A HINT  FOR  MOTHERS
FOR RAINY DAYS
Here ia an excellent way to amine
:i child e.n a rainy day eer to sot him
t.e amusing himself. Bring oul copiei
nf i.lil magazines, .1 pair of scissors,
a bottle of mucilage or a -.mall p<.t oi
flout paste, and 1 brush, The paste
ia preferable In some cays, being
easier t<> wash off the child's fingeri
and apron.   Produce lome piecel of
�� 1 e,f different ihapes and aizei of
heavy paste-board could be made 1�����
antwer. The Philadelphia "North
American" tells hosr in play tlie game.
Now to begin. Here on the cover of
the magazine ymi have selected is a
laily���a very beautiful lady���with re.sy
cheeks, black eyes ami a purple ueewn
Cut her eeut carefully anil paste her
up against a block that has a broad
enough   base  I'i keep  her  from  tttm-
bling over, ami ihat is long enough tn
support her rather weak spine. Mere
are two mure lailies���perhaps the pur-1
pie laily would like sisters. One can't
have iieei many ladies, anyhow, especially if eene wishes t" play department
st..re ami have a bargain rush.
Ah! lure is an advertisement uf a
carpet firm, and jusl the finest kind
of an Oriental run: is in it. Let's cut it
eeut! Ii will look splendid for tlie doll-
hquse hall. Delightful! This man in
llie ready-made suit advertisement is
just the husband fur one of thc purple
lady's sisters. He would loojc too in-
sigtlificienl married tu the purple lady
because he isn't ceeluied, poor man!
And un the next paye i.s a baby and
a litlle liny, who will do for the
children. There arc sume fine chairs
iu ihis furniture advertisement, anil
near the baek is a table, on which
there is a steaming dinner. Before
long the whole house will bc furnished.
Next, the garden is to be considered and a look out kept for fences and
tries and (lowers of every description.
The floral catalogues have heaps of
them. Don't forget the garage and
the automobile either, and there
might be sume chickens, cows and
pigs, if the purple lady's brotlier-in-
law is a gentleman  fanner.
But what we can invent fur the
child is nothing to lhe plays his own
fertile little brain will produce after
yuu have given liim one lesson in
this  simple art  of toymaking.  A box
of crayons to color the pictures is
an  added  pleasure.
The Paper Kingdom charges nothing for thc happiness to be found
within its gates, and the little tenement child may enter with the small
lady who has at her service an inexhaustible parental purse.

Butter and Cream as Medicine
One of the favorite remedies uf
physicians is cod-liver oil, and why
is it une of the mysteries eef the world
uf medicine, when all there is about
it is an oil or fatty substance is wanted that is easily digested and quite
an easily assimilated, lish oil being
appropriated with a small outlay nl
digestive power. Why cud-liver oil,
a product of the decomposition uf
lish refuse, should ever have been
chanced upon, when butter and cream
arc nature's supply, and at once the
most readily obtainable, is unexplain-
ablc. While any one can take cream
ur butter, the consuming of fish oil
requires the fortitude of a saint and
thc heroism of a martyr; and as we
know, lhe oil docs not agree with
many, and is hard of digestion in
others. Now, it has been demonstrated that fresh, unsalted butter, is rather mure digestible than oil, and is
pleasant to take ou thinly-cut slices
of bread and as high as 4 ounces a
day of this butter can be eaten with
impunity by even delicate persons,
and cream can be taken to the full
desire  uf  the  palicnl.     Where  1 ne  is
recovering frum prostrating sickness
and the body needs nourishment, thii
fresh butter, it is now asserted, has
no equal in building up Ihe wasted
tissues of the body, and as a stimulant, very hot, fresh milk is without
a rival, outside of the use of alcohol,
which last is better left allelic when
possible, Growing children may be
greatly benefitted by indulging in
generous amounts uf butter, though
it may seem expensive, hut it may
pi.e\c the' cheapest in the end. Either
uf these remedies can be taken without a dociur's prescription, and is outside of the "kill ur cure" warranl.

Real    Happiness    Found   in    Doing
Others Good
The person who has the flight of faculty of making people satisfied with
themselves and what they possess is
thc greatest distributor of happiness.
Some people possess that faculty unconsciously, they have such a keen
appreciation of everything in this
world that tliey see only the best.
It may be just a little newsboy
one meets but such a remark as, "Little man, you will be a great business
man some day," will send that "little
man'' away with just enough, satisfaction in his heart to make him ambitious and  happy.
And to sonic young girl who is absolutely unconscious nf herself, the
remark that "if she keeps herself always as pure and natural as she is today she will grow lovelier year by
year," will fill her with the appreciation of thc value of the naturalness
and loveliness which she is told that
she possesses. She will find happiness in that sensation of satisfaction.
Then there is the real happiness
which is more divine than all else in
the world, the happiness to be found
in dning guud f'er others, relieving
Buffering. No thanks are necessary.
not even a word.
If these women and men who live
for themselves alone, who have no
time to learn the sorrows of the less
fortunate ones, who will not be annoyed with other people's troubles,
would get out into the world and be
an uplift to some one of something,
they would not have these desperate
battles  with themselves  when alone
with    their   own    conscience.        They
WOUld   not    ueellelel    as   tlll'V   do,   "wlllll
In,   is  all  for."
It  is within the power eif each and
every soul 'en this earth t.. give bap*
piness to some ol Cod's people. And
there  is  more real happiness  t" be
found in making Others happy than
ill all the gifts uf Solomon.

Hallowe'en  Parties
h'ur  lhe benefit  uf  those  who  wish
u, do a little entertaining   em    this
festive eve which is drawing so near,
1 send the following suggestions and
trust they may be in litlle lee help
��� 1 iim-uiie.
Hallowe'en frolic is always popular with yening folks, whose festival
il really is. Nor does it require any
ureal expenditure of labor ur money
tu arrange fur such a parly; for the
decorations may be had fur the Liking from natures uwn conservatories,
and the refreshni :nts, if custom and
tradition are regarded, should comprise only a feu sinple viands, notably nuts, apples, popcorn, ginger
cakes and fresh sueel cider���all wilb-
iu lhe possibility of the musl modest
purse, and requiring next, tn nothing
in tbe way uf preparation,
The entertainment feature, too, is
easily arranged, fur certain sports
from time out uf mind have been inseparably connected with the festival.
Modern games would be entirely out
of keeping  wilh  lhe  occasion.
For a Hallowe'en, decorate the
house profusely with autumn foliage,
lhe rich crimsons, yellows and russets of which form such a harmonious color scheme, bliaile the lights
with paper Jack-o'-lanterns and hang
.lack-o'-lanlcrns here and there wherever an available place is found.
These lanterns can be bought ready
for use of any dealer in paper novel-
tics, arc inexpensive, yet add greatly
to the decorative effect.
Such games as ducking fur apples,
trying fortunes with apple parings
and apple seeds, testing fate by means
of "the three biggies," popping
chestnuts and others equally familiar
lu everyone should be played If
there i.s someone at hand who can
act the part cleverly a fortune teller
will contribute- immensely to the
evening's fun
For refreshments serve hickory
nuts and walnuts, good eating apples, ginger cakes, popcorn balls and
sweet cider Serve these in the simplest manner possible, dispensing nn
this occasion with all modem furbelows. The refreshments might be
placed upOn a table and the guests
allowed to help themselves or they
might be "passed" in the old-fashioned way.
She   Broke   the   Record
Mrs. Thomas R. Marshall, wife of
the vice-president of the United
States, is opposed to equal suffrage,
'she believes that a woman's place is
at home. Yet the press despatches tell
���is that since March 4 Mrs. Marshall
has made between fifteen and sixteen hundred calls, and has broken
all the records ever established by the
wife of any former vice-president ur
uf any cabinet minister. Nur was Mrs.
Marshall Obliged tu do it. Official
etiquette only requires the vice-president s wife lo make a "first call" on
the wife of lhe President, and hcr obligation to return calls limited to the
wives if members of the cabinet, justices of the Supreme Court and ambassadors. Mrs. Marshall apparently
I'lijeiys making calls, "l.t has been a
great pleasure lo me," she is reported
as saying, "I actually feel grateful for
the institution which makes calling
in Washington the chief feature of
social."
Mis. Marshall is mil charged with
slighting her doiiusiice duties because
uf lur fondness fur society. Rut if she
can make nearly sixteen hundred calls
iu seven months, Without ncgkvtin <
her family, is it nut possible thr-t
other women could find time to vote
once  a  year?
A  Comfortable  Feeling
There's   a   comfortable;   feeling
When an aching tooth is yanked,
And  it's  nut  a  bad  sensation
When a ten-spot yuu have banked.
Hul  fur  cuiuforlable  feeling
There is none lhat starts the grin
Like lhe one you get in autumn
When  the coal's all in.
Vou  may  sigh  with  satisfaction
When  a  long-due  debt  is  paid,
And may think you know contentment
When a cleaver deal you've made,
Hut   the   comfortable   feeling
That most satisfies your soul
Is   to  know  that winter's  coming
Hut your  cellar's full of coal.

When the Dominion department of
agriculture twenty-three years ago
established its experimental farm at
Agassiz, the question of the hour
with the newly-arriving farmer in
British Columbia was fruit. At any
rate, for many years special attention
was paid to the horticultural end of
lhe farm, fe.r this was its chief feature. There were several orchards
and a great number eif experiments
iu growing various kinds of trees were
carried out by the superintendent, Mr.
Thomas  Sharpe.
Nearly a score of years, however,
showed that there were better places
in British Columbia to grow fruit
than Agassiz. Some varieties of
course, did very well in the orchards,
but the results appeared to justify a
radical change in the policy of the
farm. Mr. Sharpe moved to Salmon
Arm to contiuc his fruiting experiments in a more favored locality. A
.new superintendent, who was essen-
' tially a livestock man, took charge.
Now, the big farm is engaged particularly in the solving of livestock
problems, just as years ago its work
was particularly with the orchards.
Really it is now a ceimmon or garden
variety of mixed farm, with a strong
leaning to livestock���and with only
enough trees left to conduct the simplest experiments with.
Farmers Appreciate It
Under the new regime the farm is
doing a big work among the dairy
and poultry and hog-producing community of the lower mainland. Spread
under the shadow of Mount Clieam,
with seiil and weather conditions almost the same as the average Chilliwack or Langley farm, the experimental station is in a particularly fine
and   effective   locality.     An   average
Two silus will contain upwards of
MK) tons when the corn is all in. The
standard ground feed for cattle and
hops on the farm is a mixture of
about four parts of oats to one of
peas and one and a quarter of barley���all grown together on the same
held with a sowing of clover also
put in at the same time for later feed.
Practically one-fourth of the entire
farm was sowed to this grain crop
this year.
Holsteins Do Well There
Mr. Moore is well satisfied with
his Holstein herd. He started nearly two years ago with 28 head, sent
out from Ontario, and they arc doing
exceedingly well. With a more difficult grazing country, Ayrshires or
Jerseys might perhaps be better, but
with plenty of rich grass available and
lots of coarse feed the Holsteins are
very satisfactory. They are great
milk producer* and fine, large easily-
handled animals. Last year the milk
tests showed an average of 3.76 in
butter fat. A prize milker is being
tested just now. Shc gave 84 lbs. of
milk one day recently and yielded
545 lbs. during the week, and this
one month after freshening. Most of
lhe milk is turned into butter in the
farm dairy, but a little cream is sent
to Vancouver.
In the pig section, where 100 or
more animals are kept, the most interesting experiments now going on
is one to determine the value of the
waste meal from Vancouver's rice
mills as a pork producer. Two score
young pigs, taken after weaning, are
now being tested ou all kinds of food.
Four iu a pen, they are being fed on
a dozen different combinations of
food. Some get rice meal, shorts and
milk;   some  get  rice  meal  and  milk
severe than usual���vre had to feed
them in the barn, the rest of the year
they cost nothing, for they got along
quite well on grass not good enough
for cattle. The lamb product was
worth from $5 to $15 each, so you
can see that the percentage of profit
was  high.
"Next year," Mr. Moore continued
"we expect to commence a series of
tests as exact as possible on the besl
rotation of crops. A field of ten
acres will bc carefully surveyed and
divided into scores of plots where
during the next four or five years rotations will be tested. Then again
wc arc carrying on experiments
as to liming of soils, fertilizing and
the stages of decay at which best results can bc obtained from barnyard
manure. These questions we have
noi settled yet. But what wc have
already demonstrated io the efficiency
of our own corn crop. We have silo
feed for our milk cattle practically
all the year round."
A   DICKENS   LECTURE
'Felix Penne" Interests Large Audience at Victoria With Illustrated
Talk on Great Novelist and His
Work
Thc Victoria "Colonist" gives the
following account of Mr. Bursill's visit to Victoria. Thc trip was a financial benefit to the Collingwood Library and the Victoria "Room for
rest for shop girls."
A crowed room showed the greal
interest taken in the public lectures
of the Dickens' Club, when the Very
Rev. the Dean of Columbia took the
chair at the King's Daughters' Rest
Room. The Dean recalled bis experiences in the East End of London,
and pointed out that Dickens' characters still pass us on the street, and
still play out their parts on life's
stage. Wc needed today the spirit
and inspiration that all the great
novelist's works breathe, to defend
the suffering and oppressed, to carry
out in our daily lives the principles
of charity and mercy he ever taught.
Mr. J. Francis Bursill, who writes
under the nom de plume of Felix

of thirty-five farmers come personally every week seeking- information
or advice from Superintendent P. H.
Moore, while more than twice that
number write every week for reasons
similar to those which bring the per-
sejnal calls. So that there is a good
deal of work for the farm office to
do.
Corn is a Winner
The farm has not been running
long enough on the livestock schedule
to obtain very complete results in
any direction; but another two years
should make a great showing in displaying what actually can be done
ahiiig certain lines of experiment.
There arc 160 acres under cultivation.
Crop scientists, especially in late
years, have been paying more and
more attention to crop rotation���'
and the new superintendent has inaugurated a four-year cycle that encompasses nearly everything in the
way of field crops and for thc first
two years at any rate, has done well.
The most notable achievement so far
is the success of the corn crop. One
field eif ten acres harvested a few
elays ago was as fine a forage crop
as could be grown anywhere. It
turned out approximately fifteen tons
to the acre, which is far more than
could bc obtained off the same
ground from any other crop, and as
a feed for cattle can not be. surpassed. It is hauled in and fed into a
gasoline-driven cutter, then blown into a silo. It is chopped tine, ami it
keeps   iu   splendid   shape   all   winter.
emly; some rice meal, blood meal
and alfalfa; others get shorts, alfalfa meal and milk and so on. Their
initial weight and condition is taken,
and on a diagram like a clinical chart
their gains iu weight each week and
much information arc put down. Vancouver consumers like their pork
small���the pigs of live or six months,
that can bc made to weigh 150 lbs.,
are the most desired on the city market and. they arc in turn the most
profitable for the grower. Pure-bred
Yorkshires arc the pigs kept on the
farm.
A Fine Poultry Yard
The poultry division is not very
elaborate nor expensively housed,
but the appearance of things would
be a delight to any poultryman. Five
or six hundred hens arc kept. Open-
front houses, fitted with muslin curtains, which are never used except in
the very windy weather of winter are
provided. The houses arc 20 feet
long and 16 wide, shed-roof style,
seven and a half feet high in front,
sloping to four feet at the. rear. The
roosts run along the rear wall and
the hens can not possibly bc in a
draft. White leghorns seem to be in
I a majority of thc hens kept. The
[houses arc located so that chicken
runs may bc had. alternately to the
north and south and by putting in
crops of clover or sun-flowers in the
different yards in different seasons
the ground is kept sweet and green
stuff is provided feir the fowls. Here,
again, skim-milk is used very extensively in the last rush of fattening
for market.

What Go With Cattle
"Vcs, you can readily guess that I
am a great believer ill mixed farming," Mr. Moore said to a reporter the
either day. "The ideal farm for the
lower mainland, to my way of thinking, is one where you could have
from 50 to 100 cattle, all the hogs
that their milk would float along, together with some sheep and poultry.
The sheep is not getting his due in
this country. Last year our small
bunch cost only $1.80 per head for
the year's feed. For 54 days in the
winter���and, you know, it was more
chairman, and gave a talk on London of Dickens' time and the London of today. From first to last he
held his hearers spellbound by the
quaint personal memories of his lorty
years in "Brain Street," as lie dubbed the hub of journalistic London,
by his excursions into bygone customs and ways, by his humor and
pathos blended into a pleasant pilgrimage through the great metropolis. The splendid collection of slides,
many colored and some quite unique,
made thc lecture memorable to all
Dickens' lovers.
As an editor, Dickens won the
hearts of his colleagues, and Mr. Bursill told a story that is not generally
known as to the genuine kindness of
Boz. When acting as editor of
"House Words," an American
lady who was suffering in great loni-
ness in London, far from friends, with
a sick husband, and wilh narrow means
wrote to him, asking advice as to proposed literary work. In reply Dickens wrote a series of letters that simply bubbled with kindness and concern. This correspondence was rescued from oblivion by Mr. Bursill,
and the brilliant collection of letters were eventually published in the
"English   Illustrated   Magazine."
Other topics touched upon were
Dickens and the stage, the improvement of the criminal's lot, education,
and a score of interesting subjects to
which the lecturer had devoted years
of careful study and research. Mr.
Bursill is a fellow of the Royal Historical Society, and it is hoped that
he will favor the club with another
talk during the winter season.
At the close of Mr. Bursill's lecture,
the Dean moved a cordial vote of
thanks, and expressed his sincere
wishes for the success of the club.

True the foremen have just a handful of workers in each ward but "what
are they among so many" as one of
the listeners remarked to the Great
Master in a desert when he wanted
to feed the multitude. How are we
going to feed our multitude of children on so little as he have been earning of late.
With hundreds of thousands of
dollars paid into the different departments during the past months and
the ever expected sale of bonds coming on, cannot something be done
for us this winter. It is work we
want,  not  promises  and  not  charity.
Why not try to sell the bonds at
home as they are doing in the city.
Our great monied men would have
a great chance to put into practice the
doctrines they are preaching, and
that would enable us to put our faith
in them.
We realize that January is coming
very rapidly and that our representatives are anxious to put up a "good
case" but sir, a week's work would
work marvels with our faith, and the
hopes that from time lo time have
been raised would put fresh vigor into our limbs could we but have the
joy of facing our homes and telling
we were going to work once more.
Faith we certain have in the future
of South Vancouver, and when the
foreign elements are removed and the
real true Britisher allowed to work
side by side with the Canadian born,
on our own work and in our own Dominion, then will things prosper and
grow.

Caffin���Tugwell Marriage of Interest
to    Many    South    Vancouver
People
All the people in South Vancouver,
regardless of religious stripe, will extend their heartiest congratulations
to Rev. Mr. G. F. C. Caffin, M.A.,
Rector  of  St.  Peter's,  and  his  bride.
Rev. Mr. Caffin is widely known
throughout the municipality and his
sterling qualities have won fur him
many friends, even beyond lhe boundaries of bis parish. Mrs. Caffin, who
was Miss Mary Tugwell, will be welcomed  to  the  district.
Had it not been for the recent misfortune to the parish in the burning
of St. Peter's Church, the wedding
would have likely been solemnized
within its doors. The following report has been given of the event in
the daily press :
"The bishop of Xew Westminster
was thc celebrant, on the festival of
St. Simon and St. Jutle, of the marriage between Rev. George Fordyce
Crawford Caffin, M.A., and Miss Mary
Tugwell, youngest daughter of the
late Rev. Canon R. Tugwell, of Oxford, Eng., and Mrs. Tugwell, of
Vancouver. A large company of j
friends gathered at St. James' church
for the service, the organist of St.
Peter's accompanying the hymns and
playing the wedding marches. Rev.
William Barton, priest-vicar of
Christ church, Victoria, acted as bishop's chaplain, and also read the preface, while the nuptial eucharist was
celebrated by Rev. Father Hume-
Smith, assisted by Rev. Father Ed-
wardes, rector of St. James'. Mrs.
Tugwell gave away her daughter,
who looked charming in a simply
fashioned white frock and lovely veil
used by her mother at her own wedding, and the Douquet she carried was
composed of white roses and lily of
the valley. Miss Tugwell was bridesmaid to her sister, while Rev. Fane-
Edge accompanied the groom. Following the ceremony, the company
of guests were entertained at St.
Luke's at a delightful dejeuner prepared in her own inimitable way by
Sister Francis, the bishop of New
Westminster paying a tribute to the
bridge and groom in a felicitous
speech, and proposing thc health of
Mrs. Tugwell. The beautiful flowers
used in the decoration of thc church
and St. Luke's were the gift of a member of the congregation, while con-
spicious among the numerous and
valuable wedding presents received
was a particularly handsome dining-
room clock, presented bv the choir
of St. Peter's and a few friends. Mrs
Oliver Harvey kindly lent her moleer-
car for the' occasion and the bride
and groom drove away amidst a
shower of confetti accompanied by
the good wishes of their friends.
An interesting lecture was given
by A. E. Kiichaly, McMaster's University. Toronto, on his native country, Persia, at the F.dmonds Baptisl
Church. Mr. Kochaly is returning
to Persia soon.
Mr. D. C. Patterson has returned
from Victoria after attending the
School   Board  Convention.
