Regular Annual Excitement On

i   of  the   incorporation   of   South

There are many members who are
in favor of South Vancouver setting
up shop for herself. There arc others, however, who for certain rea-

In the meantime all ratepayers and
business men stand by and see South
Vancouver, as a municipality, making
little headway. All these men realize that cither Incorporation or annexation must take place soon���that
i-   ii   it   still   remains   true   that   Belf-
preservatios is the lirst  law of nature.
When the incorporation subject
came Up al the Board eel Trade meeting, several members urged that, as
it was a matter in which the whole
municipality was vitally interested, it
should at least receive a good thorough discussion.
With the majority, however, incorporation was viewed as though il
were a skeleton, and was walked
back  into  its  closet.
Discussing the future of South Vancouver recently, a prominent ratepayer  made  this  statement :
"1 think that thc ratepayers of
South Vancouver should worry now
about the future of the corporation.
I believe that annexation is the move
lhat we should make���and that at the
earliest moment, Of course little will
bc said until another election comes
in sight. 'Then all of a sudden people will yell out their ideas and the
candidates for office will make their
usual solemn promises. Annexation
should bc pushed through this year.
If we are again balked on the annexation problem then we should proceed
to incorporate and develop a real city
on   the   North   Fraser   Harbor���or   a
Republic,    li South Vancouver were
a Republic, I believe lhat we would

While- llie foregoing statement may
be taken for what it is worth, a group
of disgruntled property owners met

Vancouver Property Owners' Association,   whose   object    it    will   hi'    [,,

Canadian Northern May Want
North Fraser Harbor
Now that it is certain that the Dominion Government has set aside for
this year $200,000 for N'orth Arm development, interest is beginning to
-wing to proposed Canadian Northern movements in this municipality
of  the  district of  South  Vancouver.
In view of the fact that the Dominion Government recently made a
loan of $15,000,000 to the Canadian
Northern Railway, there arc people'
who even suggest that the Federal
power's kindly treatment of the Xorth |
\rtu of the Fraser River ill turning
it into a national harbor, may have
some slight bearing on the possible
movements of that great financial institution presided eever by MacKcnzic
eV   Mann.
Recent   transfers   of   land   in   South
Vancouver   indicate    that    the    Canadian Northern is equipping itself with
an area which may bc available some
'lay   for   railway   yards.     Tbe   activi- !
lies  eif gangs  of  surveyors   have  led j
people   to  believe   that   the   entrance
i" iln- tunnel which will lead to False I
Creek  will be at  some point between [
Fraser street  and Victoria road, near
tin'  B.  C,  K.   R.  tram  line.
In the meantime, the Canadian
Northern is rushing work on Lulu
Maud and it became known this week
that at the New Westminster city
boundary on Lulu Island the Canadian Northern would connect with
'he B. C. E. R. It has always been
known that connection was to be
made with the 13. C. Electric at Steve-
si "ii. but the company, to assist in
securing needed property, kept secret
its intention to join at the other end
with the B, C. Elcctric's rails. A
camp is now established at the corner of No. 19 road and the C. N. R.
is rapidly doing the grading
needed to make the connection. Forty
men  arc employed at  this  camp.
Track-laying on the C. N. R.'s Lulu Island line is now proceeding
apace. Last week the first few rails
were laid by hand, and when an engine arrived from Vancouver the
work of getting the rails spiked lo
the tics commenced to proceed with
rapidity. Work on the trestle across
the muskeg stretch is making satisfactory  progress.
Mr. D. R. Ross, of Embro, Ontario,
feir many years a large mill owner in
the East, is visiting in Vancouver,
and recently called upon Mr. and Mrs.
Stewart, Twenty-second avenue, Mr.
Robert Beattie, of Main street, and
eetlier old Zorra residents now residing in South Vancouver. Mr. Ross
is accompanied by his daughters, Miss
Ross and Miss Olive.

Though Edinburgh is said to be a
greal educational centre, this is not
the truth. Edinburgh was a great
place a few years ago for the rogues
to gather after sweeping down on the
honest farmers to the south and stealing rattle and flocks. It is still rather
wild. Only a few of the inhabitants

.  .Now   is   the   time   when   1 ks   are
for a while laid aside. July is. or
should be, the time for picnics and
roses and wandering���sonielimes
hand in hand, by sea and stream and
through the leafy weieuls. I hope
that readers of the "Chinook" arc
having their full share of such pleasures. Still, even with the blue sky
overhead and the green grass beneath
your feet, you will find a book a
pleasant  companion.
"Oh!   for  a   book
And a shady nook "
Sang the poet and "them's my sentiments."
And the sky is not always blue.
"Nollekins" Smith, of London, once
wrote a volume of gossips and anecdote which he called "A book for a
Rainy Day." You will readily believe that it had a good sale in England. We have rainy days here���
sometimes���a fact I assure you��� and
a book of anecdote and gossip is
very welcome then. Magazines are
soon exhausted. Who will kindly
tell me of a British Columbia book
which will give me some such stories
of real life as Mr. Noel Robinson
is giving us in the Sunday "News-
Advertiser." I think it was Carlyle
who said that the story of every man's
life is worth telling. Mr. Robinson
is  proving  this  to  be  true.

If it be true that Mr. E. O. S.
Scholefield, the Provincial librarian,
has discovered the diary of Simon
Fraser, I tender him and liritish
Columbia my hearty congratulations.
Diaries give you a better idea of the
times when they were written than
any other form of literature. The
diaries of Samuel Pepys and John
Evelyn are priceless. Simon Eraser's diary should give us a wondcr-
ully vivid picture of pioneer days
in Hritish Columbia. I wonder if
any Vahcouverite is sparing enough
time from counting dollars to keep
a diary of the feverishly progressive
days we are living now.

Captain Eddie the other day. We
were���metaphorically speaking���and

of the good ship Egeria; while talking 1 was listlessly turning over the
leaves of an old magazine (1828)
when my eye caught some lines,
written by a sailor, as a farewell to
11.M.S. Montagu when that ship was
"put out of commission" iu 1815.

I see that Mrs. Dcspard, the militant suffragette, has been pretty militant at a meeting of hcr colleagues.
How strange has been the change
wrought in this woman by the sense
nf injustice and wrong. When I
knew Mrs. Dcspard some years ago
she was a kindly soul with an open
hand and a sympathetic heart. At a
meeting of the .Lambeth Hoard of
Guardians 1 have seen here so moved
by the woes of some poor creature
that I have quoted to myself���
"The pearliest dew not brings
Such morning incense from the fields
of May,
As do theise brighter drops that twinkling stray
From those kind eyes���the very home
and haunt
Of sisterly affection."
There is "something rotten" in the
state when clever, kindly, sympathetic, cultured women arc driven to
bombs and lire to redress their grievances. I am quite sure that a woman
of Mrs. Despard's calibre would bc
amenable to "reason." What maddens
her is trickery, treachery and double

A little of that "luck" which Mr
Douglas, of the Carnegie Library has
enjoyed has fallen lo Mr. J. Francis
Bursill, of the Collingwood Library.
By a stroke eef good fortune he heard
that a gentleman, long kneewn as ail
ardent student of political economy
and sociology, was about to leave
liritish Columbia for the F.ast. and
wished tei dispose of his
selected, valuable and in
speets, unique library. Mr
as eager after books as Lipton after
the "cup" and he persuaded the Imeik
collector that it would be a sin to dispose a collection so valuable in its entirety by a public auction, or by any
other way which would disintegrate
the collection. "W'e have a local par*
liainent at Collingwood," said Mr.
Bursill; "these hooks are just what
our M. P.'s should study." There
could be no manner of doubt that
anything which would educate "the
legislature" should be encouraged and
the owner of the books generously
let the Collingwood librarian have
the collection at about one third, or
one fourth its actual market value.
'The Collingwood Library has no
appropriation. It is kept up mainly
by the generosiily of Mr. Bursill,
who devotes the major part of his
scant earnings as a journalist to the
institution. In the winter concerts
and entertainments help a little and

everything. Talent is serious. s,,bcr
grave and respectable; tact is all tbat
and more. too. It is not worth a seventh sense, but is the life of all the
five. Il is the open eye, the quick ear,
the judging taste, the keen smell, and
tbe lively touch; it is the interpreter
of all riddles, the surmounter of all
difficulties, the removal of all obstacles. *    ��    ��
Tact will manipulate one talent so
as to get more out of it in a lifetime than talents will accomplish
without tact. Talent lies abed till
noon, tact is up at six. Talent is
power, tact is skill, Talent knows
what to do, tact knows how tei do it.
Talent theorises, tact perforates. Philosophers   discuss,  practical   men   act.

It   requires   only    a    rudimentary
kneiw ledge of human nature to understand that people do not like to have
their enthusiasms dampened, their
aims or achievements belittled, their
heroes decried. The habit of dog-
matis assertion and correction is always  tactless.
*    *    *
Truly may it be said that "the tender mercies of the tactless are cruel."
Little do they dream what annoyances they give, what pain they daily
and hourly occasion. They are wholly
unconscious, for instance, of the
wound they inflict upon the man that
lias an impediment in his speech,
when they are beforehand with him
in the word he is struggling to bring
forth. Nor does the man who has the
misfortune of wanting a leg or arm
feel less indignant at the officious-
ness which keeps his infirmity con.
stantly in the minds of the company
by forcing assistance upon him which
be does not want.

SATURDAY. Jl/LY  5,  1913.
ABOUT lev months ago lhe oouth Vancouver Council proclaimed to the world that they would phi
South Vancouver on the map industrially, and that they
would Bel an example to the other cities ,,f the Pacific
Coast, American as well as Canadian, by buying up lands
along the North Ann of the Fraser to be leased at reasonable rentals to manufacturers.
When the project was announced the ratepayers were
most enthusiastic and it was thought that at last the
South Vancouver legislators were getting down to real
men's business. Bul that was two months ago. The days
haw been passing one by one, and as time goes by we
have been hearing les- ami le-s of the idea of purchasing
cheap  industrial sites.
With the appointment of a Government Commission to
administer the Xorth Fraser Harbor and the apportionment of huge sums by the Dominion Government for the
development eif the North Ann, it is only reasonable to
expect that the values of waterfrontage on the Xorth Arm
are daily jumping ahead. Waterfrontage feer industrial
sites might have been bought by the Municipality two
months ago for less money than it can be bought today.
Six months from now, wilh the opening of the Panama
Canal, only a short distance away, and thc development of
a national port on the Xorth Arm proceeding, values
will doubtless increase materially.
There are no cheap industrial sites available in Greater
Vancouver today. As for industries, wc have none save
those that have developed through the grace of providence. Surely South Vancouver will not persist in following lhe game of putting off until the morrow. Surely
South Vancouver's council arc not going to get the reputation eif being merely good starters.
IT i.s encouraging to note- that the South Vancouver
Hoard of Trade is forcing ahead the project to establish a public market on the Xorth Arm of the Fraser
at some convenient point in the municipality. Xo more
worthy undertaking could possibly be considered by this
organization���a body of business men, by the way, conspicuous in South Vancouver because of the fact that
since its inception it has accomplished from time to time
various   objects   eii   keen   interest   to   the   welfare   of   the
Reports t.e hand point to ihe fact that the Provincial
Government is going tu help out in ihe financing of the
proposed public market. The Hritish Columbia Electric
Railway al-" looks kin.lly upon lhe idea, and the Muni-
eip.il Council pledges to assist it. With the consummation
��� ���i ihe project, there is in. question bin that the whole
m' iln- Peninsula will be greatly benefitted, and the good
arising from the undertaking will be most felt right here
in the municipality.
Farmers from the rich Delta agricultural districts will
welcome the South Vancouver market. The place will
I" convenient from their poinl uf view. And of course
lln Lulu Island ranchers will eemsiilcr the market a boon,
Moreover, there i- i certain rich fanning territory that

which will watch with keen interesi its operation, W'e

Board of Trade to become affiliated with it in the ad-

editor e,f the Toronto "Globe." told the congregation of
St. Xmlrew's Church, Vancouver, 'in Sunday, that the
modern idea of a successful deal in business was one
where a man, alter advertising an honest article in an
hum-i newspaper, -eld at an honest profit. Such a trade,
saiel the doctor, was one where all parties lu it prolitt-.d.
Business nun of high standing today, said he, recognize
the paramount value of honesty and fair dealing. If f.ir
in thing else but selfish protection they are taking the
gospel ..f br.itherly love into their offices with them and
preaching it to the people through their advertising mediums.    Dr. MacDonabl's address was the same delivered
by him three week- before at the convention of iln- Federated Advertising Club- uf America which was held iii
Hr. MacDonald's subjeel was "Tin Law uf the Neighborhood."    He  pitted  the  "law  uf  the    neighbor! I'
against   the "law .if  the  jungle" as  the  ni"  apply    p

CURTAILING municipal expense is the bobby now being indulged in by the South Vancouver Council. In
the past few days il has been decided to make sweeping
reductions in the gangs of workmen engaged throughout
the district. In the face of this we find the Council employing, at $56.00 weekly, a new road superintendent, The
men who are being let out are. of course, local workmen
with families, who arc dependent to a certain extent upon
tlu public works of the municipality for their daily bread.
The $56.00 a week man is being secured freem outside the
district. There never was a time in South Vancouver's
history when the services of such an official were less
POSTAL CONDITIONS in Smith Vancouver will be improved by the effacement eif a name that has been the
cause of many troubles���"South Vancouver P. O." The
new name for this postal station at the corner of River
road and Fraser street will be Fraser Harbor. This name
was advanced by the residents of the district and the suggestion is being accepted by the department. Xo b.'tter
choice could have been made. ."Fraser Harbor" will not
conllict with the names of other post offices throughout
Hritish Columbia, and will fittingly commemorate the inauguration of lhe Xorth Fraser Harbor. It might be
mentioned that the change of name has been the result
uf the joint efforts of the South Vancouver Hoard of
Trade and the "Chinook."

Representation of Western communities in the Federal Parliament
is at present "tit uf all proportion.
Soulh Vancouver is one of tlu- firsl
districts bi prepare data upon which
parliamentary representation will be
granted the 411.000 people living within its boundarii -.
At present Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and Hritish Columbia
have on;' member of Parliament for
every 49,739 people. Thc Eastern
Provinces, Ontario, Quebec, Nova
Sceilia, Xew Brunswick, ami Prince
Edward Island have one member fur
an average of 29,376. In round numbers the ligures are one member for
every 50,000 people in Manitoba and
the West, and one member for every
30,000 in Ontario and the Bait,
As   the   Winnipeg   "Tribune"   says.
this   basis  of  representation   cannot
endure. It was unly the exceptional
circumstances of 1911 which excused
the holding of an election without
previously passing a Redistribution
bill. It vvas due, if not overdue, at
that time, and thc opinion was expressed in these columns at thai
time���before the election���that no
matter what thc result at the poll-
might be, another general election
would need to be held within a year
in order to give the West the representation it was entitled to in Parliament. At that time no naval issue'
was in sight, anywhere but ill Quebec.
The two parties had united on the
ni��lify���'.of 1909, and'the greal issue
between ihcm was on the question 'if
trade', Yet newspapers and platform
speakers on both sides of politics assented to tlu suggestion, that an
early election wouhl have to be held
in justice to the  West.
In face of tin- ligures quoted, the
Winnipeg "Tribune" is surely right
in saying that Mr. Borden cannot
hold another general election without
fust passing a Redistribution bill and
giving the West its rightful voice in
Parliament. The Eastern Provinces
have me wish to retain an advantage
ill this mailer.    The "Tribune" says :
"As is w .11 known, the ralio of
representation is fixed by the Province of Quebec with its stationary
sixty-live members! Under the census of 1911 this allows one member
for approximately every 30,800 people.
The redistribution would therefore
fix  lhe  representatives as  follows :
Ontari  82
Nova  Scotia   	
British Columbia    ...
Prince   Edward   Island
"Under fair redistribution Ontari
will le-s.- four members, Novo Scotia
three, New- Brunswick two, ami
Prince   Edward   Island  one,   British
Columbia will gain live. Alberta live,
Saskatchewan live, and Maintoba four.
The Province! east of the Great
Lakes will collectively lose ten members and lhe Western Provinces will
gain nineteen."
It is pretty generally understood
that the Government will not appeal
lo the country at present. But one
'if the most pressing obligations mi
the Ministry is to pass a Redistribution bill at as early a date as possible
and then bring on an election so that
Ihe whole country will be equitably

The exact difference Between the
Pittsburg club as a rank outsider and
a pennant contender is John Peter
Wagner, sometimes known as Hans.
That  difference is  now  on  the job.
The venerable John Peter is now-
close to his fortieth year and. saving
a few rheumatics and a spavin here
ar,d there, is the same marvel who has
batted for an average of .350 for sixteen years. The only weakness apparent to thc fan is a slight lack of
speed. Honus can't tear around the
bases and annoy pitchers as he did
of yore, but he can bust that ball in
the nose with the same deadly accuracy that splintered the whole league
for four campaigns.
Lest the younger fans forget it
might be a good idea to say something a little historical about this
wonderful Wagner. John Peter, or
IIonus, came to Pittsburg from Louisville in 1897 as an outfielder. That
season he had a batting average of
���363. Later he took up the job of
shortstopping and has been at it ever
since. His batting average for sixteen years has been in the neighborhood of .350. Honus was the champion hitter for seven seasons. Here
are the figures :

(that linked West with East, ami wale- prove a forerunner of yet other

Sir Richard McBride, premier of

iin two years the transportation facil-
Sumething in tin- way of seeing
British Columbia and in furthering

year ICO residents of Vancouver, men
ami women, spent a elay iu th,- beautiful Fraser Valley. They travelled by
chartered electric tram- from Vancouver through N'aw Westminster te
Chilliwack; they lunched in a large
public hall ill lhat beautiful city, anil
many nf the men and women of Chilliwack we-re their guests. During the
winter months, another excursion of
business men journeyed t" Vernon,
attending the convention of the fruit

co-operation was the theme nf thc
Vancouver message, and mi both occasions tin- plea f"i- a co-operation nf

Olga is five-and-a-half years e.f age.
and has a light complexion, large' him'
eyes, wavy hair, ami a dimple in cae-h
cheek. It is thought that she is hidden or abandoned in some institution
along the  Coasl.
She   was  seen   last   with   her  father
on board a train bound for Vancouver.
Mr. M. J. Shea, the night editor of
the Winnipeg free 1'rcse,. was on the
train and made the acquaintance of
the little girl and hcr father; later recognizing their pictures and names
in   the  story  which   was  published.
Mr. Bills gave Vance.uver as his

Prince Rupert and Fort George. The

Creosoted Blocks of Norway Pine
Prove Satisfactory in Many Large
Cities���Lasts for Fifteen Years
The paving of city streets with
wood is again coming into favor, new
methods uf laying the pavements
making this one of the most satisfactory of pavements. Vancouver s
pavements are largely ol the satin:
material. Eighty-two tfer cent, of
tin} ilt'w paving in Minneapolis is
woud block, and Saskatoon and other
Western towns are giving the woud
block paving the preference.
BeSI results arc obtained from rectangular-shaped blocks cut i'i mih
Southern or-.Norway pine, which arc
thoroughly seasoned and creosot?d,
This latter process not only lengthens lhe life of the wood, but reduces
its absorptive capacity f.er waler, thus
preventing the weakening uf tlie
Wood-fibres and reducing its tendency
to buckle. The most approved method e.f laying this pavement used in
London, New Vork ami olher large
cities, is lirst to make a concrete
foundation four to sjx inches thick
on which is laid a thin layer of sand,
or. better-still, of iioist Portland
cemenl, intei which the blocks arc
closely  set.
The   blocks   are   from   live   t.i   niin
Inches in depth ami must be free from
defects. Care must be taken to place
them ewith the grain perpendicular lee
the roadbed. If laid with the lung
edges ai right angles te. lhe curb lhe
juiiits arc apt to become worn by the
calks on the horses' shoes, so lo prevent this and l.e best provide for possible expansion, the paving is laid
at an angle of about sixty-si \, n degrees with the curb. Tin- joints .ire
usually filled with ground cemenl
ami ilu- surface of tin- paving is then
covered with a thin dressing ..I coarsi
sand, which heels into the pores of
the  blocks and roughens them.
Such a pavement has thc smoothness of asphalt ami will last almost
without repair for fifteen years under
ordinary conditions, It is sanitary.
noiseless, easily ke-pi clean and lias'a
certain springiness lacking in asphalt,
and so is much easier een horses' feet.
Expert labor is not required in its
laying, and the cost of maintenance
is practically nothing, so that from
the standpoint of cost as well, ii compares favorably with the asphalt,
macadam and brick now being used
in   Canadian   towns  and   cities.
The manufacture of wood-blocks
fur paving would furnish sawmill
owners with a means of utilizing the
many defective logs of Norway pine
unfit for saw material, and, could a
steady market bc developed, much of
the waste in connection with present
lumbering and milling operations
could bc avoided.

(ni Saturday, June 2X. thc Vancouver and Westminster Lacrosse
teams engaged in one of the closest
games played ihi> season at Victoria
The final score was 5���4, in Westminster's favor. Sir Richard McBride
was asked to face off the bald and
he eliel this atiiiel an uproar of cheers.
During the first three quarters the
best of lacrosse was witnessed, the
score at the end of the third quarter
being four all. The final period, how-
em. was marred by somewhat of a
riot, which called for the services of
the peilice.
*    *    *
Out-generalled   and   out-played   in
one "i" the fastest and cleanest matches eef the year despite the muddy
field, Westminster went down to a
decisive defeat  before  Vancouver at
Hastings I'ark Dominion Day. The
score, which is a fair representation
of the play, was 8 goals lo 3, and Vancouver never earned a cleaner-cut victory. The Greenshirts played a masterly game from the inception of the
contest, using not only their sticks
and legs well, but also their heads.
The defence played a close, hard
checking game, and the forwards,
with Lalonde leading in the scoring,
figured in constant attacks in which
all the stragegy of (across was concentrated. It was a crucial game for
Vancouver, as, had they hist it, it
would have been hard to see how Ihey
could have been in the running for
the Minto Cup, Added to the encouragement which a win gives, will
be the thought, delightful to linger
.ever, of the tremendous preponderance of the score in Vancouver's favor- Westminster failed to engineer
their brilliant dashing attacks as
aforetime. Some will say it was the
field. Perhaps, but in coming to a
decision on this point, it might he
opportune to consider the splendid
game contributed bv Griffith and
Godfrey. These players were thc cement that glued the defence together
into a wall that vvas broken but seldom, and Ihen with the greatest of
difficulty. Griffith has rarely checked
better, while Godfrey's work in intercepting passes and clearing out advantageously to the home, has rarely
been equalled.
Lalonde was in fine fettle, opening
the tally sheets feir his team in the
lirst quarter and taking all the goals
in the third and fourth periods. However, to Lalonde is not all the glory.
Carter and Hyland featured some
work lhat places them easily among
the stars of the brightest constellations. In fact it was mostly on passes from Hyland and Carter that Lalonde worked in the tallies. Allen,
Nichols and Murray wcre also on
the right spot when the ball came,
and  fitted  excellently into thc chain.
Len Turnbull. W. Turnbull. the
Springs and McCarty played a wholehearted game to the end of the chapter. It must be admitted that Westminster are about as game a team as
has ever played lacrosse. In spite of
thc dispiriting setbacks given by Griffith and his merry men, and with the
score steadily piling up against them,
the Salinonhcllies never let un a jot,
hut went at it as if every goal was a
matter of life and death.

It was one of the many surprises
thai crop up in Ihe world of sports,
Vaise ranked as a strong four-rounder, bul imt regarded by many as a
championship possibility, entered the
ring against a more experienced boy,
hut Iiis pluck and endurance returned
liim a top-notcher so far ;h boxing
in the Dominion g"c>. Bayley, heavily backed, tried hi> utmost to stave
off defeat, but badly damaged hands
and a disfigured countenance made iti
impossible for him t< > meet the onslaughts of the new  champion after
the   sixth   reeiind.   although   when   the |
gemg signalled the finish he was trying hard and carrying lhe milling to
his opponent. Bayley lacked the |
stamina possessed by the new title-
holder. He made Vaise look like a
novice feu- the lirst five rounds and
then a well-directed right cross to
the ex-champion's nose turn el the
battle in Vaise's favor. From then
until the finish Vaise was more in
lhe' limelight, and gaining meere confidence in each succeeding round, lie
carried the milling lo the Victoria
hoy and rocked and shot his head
hack with telling right crosses and occasional straight lefts that, while lacking the steam that eme looks for in
a champion, punished the Canadian
boy and made him hack up against
the ropes,
Bayley  entered  the  ring  weighing
13154  pounds, while Vaise lipped thei
beam at  132 pounds.    Vaise's superior reach st 1 him in good stead at
long range, and he was able tee block
a lot of Bayley's swings. Bayley's
besl work was in the Clinches, while
Vaise  led at  long range.
Vaise is practically a newcomer to
the professional game. He started
boxing as an amateur three yens ago,
when he competed ill the P, N. A.
championships here. Since then he
turned professional, and always fig-
ured in the main events at the fenir-
roiinil tournaments in Seattle. Ile

Ernie Barrieau, and on one occasion
held Bayley to a four-round elraw.

won the title at liassano, Alta, from

Opening Day at Minoru
The summer race meet of the British Columbia Thoroughbred Association was ushered in last Saturday afternoon at Minoru Park hy first-class
racing in the seven different events
on the programme.
While the weather no doubt interfered wilh the attendance the turnout
was large, many ladies lending their
presence and adding to the beauty of
clubhouse, lawn and stand. Nothing
of a serious nature happened during
the afternoon to mar thc day's sport.
Vexatious delays between races were
entirely eliminated and the chafing
thoroughbreds when they faced the
harrier in each event were sent off
without any waste of time. The officials had every detail carried out in
perfect order, which greatly delighted the patrons of the sport. The pari-
iiiutuel machines were kept busy, and
while no long shots got home in front
lo upset the talent, fairly good nehls
were paid in a ceeuple of events. As
to the racing itself, it was a day for
"mud-larks," the track early in the
afternoon being quite sloppy, hut stiffening later in face of the wind that
prevail eel.
The feature event of the day was
the fifth race on lhe programme, ..f-
ficially kniewn as the "Opening Handicap" for a purse of $1000 for three-
year-olds and upwards, the distance
being one mile. A classy field of six
horses faced the --larler, four having
been scratched eluring the morning,
including Truly, thc Alan Derby winner^ alsei Lowecn, Seneca and John
Louis.      Manasseh,   a   chestnut   marc
belonging  to  the  stables  of  C.   F.
Rogers, llie millionaire owner, proved her class, anil with Jockey Kenl
riding a clever race carried ieff the
big purse in a handy fashion from
Vested Rights, the Ford enlrv, .'ind
who had held lhe lead until entering
the home stretch, when the Rogers'
entry came on with a rush from third
position, being first under the wire a
good length to the good. Thc horses
got off to a good start in this event,
and raced in a bunch, with Vested
Rights showing the way, her short
lead being challenged hy Imprint until the five-eights was reached, when
Manasseh, who had been going strong
in third place two lengths back, began
to make an effort for supremacy
Gradually creeping up and overtak
ing the leaders, the chestnut marc was
in the lead when the stretch was rea
clicd. Vested Rights fought gamely
to regain his lost lead, hut could not
make it and finished a length in the
rear of Manasseh, with Imprint coming strong two lengths back. The remainder of the field after the run up
the back stretch were never dangerous, but finished well up. The winner
was carrying top weight and rounded
off the mile in 1.45.
No sooner had thc field, in the
first race, a selling purse for three-
year-olds and upwards at five furlongs, reached the barrier than thc
cry arose "They're off" and the racing season in B.C. had been inaugurated. Six sprightly looking ponies
faced the starter, O'Kinite having
heen scratched. The race was a
pretty good one and was fought out

Assessment in  South  Vancouver
T.e the Editor "f the "Chinook"
Sir,��� I saw a news item, in your
last issue, to the effect that Assessor
West is congratulated at thc Municipal Hall, because Judge Grant did
not set aside his assessment eif my
property, although the municipality
had to pay their own costs and that
of their so-called  expert  witnesses.
As it is of general interest to property owners in South Vancouver 1
will give a statement of the facts in
the case :
My appeal against thc assessment
on a piece of property north eef the
River reiad was because, although
broken by a ravine, it i.s assessed $850
per acre more than adjoining property to the south, with similar facilities and no ravine. It is assessed
$1000 per acre more than adjoining
property to the west.
J. Z. Hall's lots with 66 feet frontage on Bridge street are assessed at
$650 each, which means that level
Bridge street lots are assessed at the
rate of about $500 per acre less than
my ttnsubdivided  property adjoining.
On agricultural land below the
River road I am assessed $250 per
acre more than adjoining property to
the wesl. and $3110 per acre more than
adjelining property to the east, cut
intei acre blocks and road allowances
On so-called waterfrontage, on thc
foot basis, I am assessed at thc rate
of $8100 per acre, as against similar
land between Main street and Fraser
avenue (owing to greater depth)
$251*1 per acre.
The Court of Revision cut $100 per
acre off West's assessment off a farm
in the adjoining section, and also
gave the same party a substantial reduction on his frontage tax at the
river.     They   also   refused,   although
properly notified to rectify J. Z Hall's
sixty-eight acre subdivision on Bridge
slreel, although tl was sheiwn that
these hits were only assessed feir a
fraction <>f what they are worth, and
although no improvement! were made
on them, they are charged "wild land
tax." On this subdivision there has
been a serious loss to the municipality through improper assessment for
years  past.
In conclusion, if Auditor Crehan
and  the  Council   had  confidence  in
West as a capable and heinest assessed, why did the Council appoint two
members of Mr. Crehan's staff, at a
cost to the ratepayers of ten dollars
per day each, to check over the assessment, their work to he finished
in   forty-live  days.
I have Auditor Crehan's certificate
showing that there wcre thirteen men
under pay in the Assessor's office at
the time of the investigation, at a cost
to the ratepayers of seven hundred
and forty dollars per month. While
Richmond, which is live times as big
as South Vancouver, has only one
man for a part of the year, and Point
Grey, which is more than twice as
big. uses their Assessor to collect Untaxes.

The Final Wooing of Anstice
A  Short Story by Arthur H. Henderson
It  was   the  last  day  e.f  the  yacht's]
homeward voyage from Nice to
Southampton   i'he Hon. Antice Bur-
11,11.1   had   pul   "il  a   new   Kiver-inadc
costume, which was proving very
tatisfactory. She dabbed a touch ot
powder on her nose distinctly pink,
anil entered the Sylph's gorgeous
little   Saloon.      Thc  duchess   arrived,
from  tin-  afternoon  slumber  in  her
cahin, at  the same  moment.
"I never knew any one, Anstice,"
the duchess declared, lurching indignantly BS the yacht rolled, "who ceiuld j
be mure provoking. You were flirting outrageously with the captain this
morning before lunch."
The culprit was graceless. Not being able tu disprove the accusation,
she contradicted it.
"Besides, flirting is no evidence of j
affection," she added, inconsciptcntly.
'And   I   thought  you  wanted   mc  to
This did not bring the duchess thc
consolation her niece seemed to expect.
"Xo one," remarked the duchess,
"has ever accused me of undue interference in other people's affairs. 1

if painful duty did not compel mc. I
have repeatedly advised yuu"���thc
duchess never hesitated to advise���"to
prepare earnestly to assume the responsibilities of your position. By
tactful inquiry I have ascertained that
several estimable proposals have already been made for your marriage."
"The difficulty is to choose," protested the Hon. Anstice Ilurnard,
plaintively. "And postponement of
worrying decisions is so eminently
comfortable. Also better for thc complexion." The duchess sat up suddenly, with a movement of exceeding exasperation.
"I presume that you are not aware,
Anstice, why the duke has accepted
the loan of this yacht from Lord
"No; but I'm curious," tbe girl admitted.
"The duke was talking to Lord
Erleton about you some weeks ago.
He mentioned what an anxiety your
conduct often caused us. Lord Erie-
ton suggested a yachting trip, and
was so kind as to offer his yacht for
the   purpose."
"To keep you out of mischief," said
the duchess, with sad plainness of
speech. Her niece flushed with annoyance.
"That was very impertinent of Lord
Erleton. Do you know him yourself,
aunt?" she demanded, incensed.
"I have not met him," replied the
duchess coldly. "He is a young man,
and has been much abroad. But your
uncle has the highest opinion of his
"Il   is   more  than   his   own   captain
evidently has, then," announced Miss
Burnard,' scornfully,    "I  askeel    him
and he got reel with confusion at the
qU< sHeell  "
The. duchess reflected with rueful.i

Anstice in her care. Hut the (lake had!
been   must  insistent,   he  was  returning   Inline  overland  himself.
Their    niece    departed    deckwards j
with   an   angry   whisk   uf  skirt.   She i
collided violently with the captain ;u
iln- head of tin companion-way. Both
recoiled in hurt astonishment,
"There's a thick fog ahead; we shall
be intee it before lung." laid the captain, recovering frum the shuck first, j
His manner, despite the impetus of
Miss Burnard into his chest���was
mild. Miss Burnard's manner, as she
replied tu him, was anything but
"You have bumped my chin, and
knocked my hat askew, and disarranged my hair. And if there's a fog
ahead, there's a sturm below!"
"What has happened now?" asked
tbe captain, soothinglv, He led the
way  tu llle bridge.
"My aunt "  said  the  lady, with
comprehensive resentment.
"Oh!" consoled the captain with significance.
"Am 1 to understand that she lias
settled your future at last?" he
This was not what she wished him
tei understand by any means. Her
eyes rested for a moment on the tall
yuung man beside her. Hc was very
handsome, An evil impulse here moved him tu remark that she wasn't
married yet.
"If yuu arc guing to be disagreeable I shan't come on the bridge," she
declared, aggrieved. However, notwithstanding the assertion, he assisted her adroitly up the exceedingly easy bridge ladder. She allowed
him to assist���still ruffled.
The breeze had died away, and the
glory of the sunset had faded in an
ominous   haze.
The captain glanced at the shifting
compass card. Then he stared around
the horizon rather anxiously. There
was   silence.
"So you think I am unsympathetic," he reproached presently.
"I wasn't thinking anything at all
about you," she said unmollificd.
This discouraged the captain, even
though he secretly doubted its truth.
"I wish some one would take the
trouble to worry over me," he mused
in a voice of unsuccessfully restrained ' longing.
"It might happen yet," Miss Burnard   opined  nonchalantly.
"Hut as regards marriage the sea
broadens a man's mind and makes
him Iueik at the question frum both
side-."  the captain  philosophized.
She nut his gaze with thoughtful
"1 sailed with a fellow once who always maintained that we.men were
nature's greatest mistake," he pursued.
She laughed amusedly. "Was that
Lurel Erelton?"
The captain was suddenly taken
aback. He protested fervently that it
was  not.
"Go e,n with thc history of your
friend," she commanded, with cordial
lielgi Heel   g'le'd   nature.
The captain���astray in evil paths,
The fellow changed his mind," he
told her after seune deliberation,
"How like a man!" she murmured.
She paused te. let this sink into his
soul. Pot .'i seceeiul her lung lashes
lifted   euchantingly.
The captain gloomed���dispirited.
With another furtive glance she
measured his lithe, active figure approvingly. Mischievous fun lit in ber
"I   want   yuu   tu     sinew     me     yeetir
photograph uf Lord Erelton. There
must be one on board."
The captain looked quite scared.
"Please get it at once," she begged.
A wheedling face was enticingly close
tu   his.
The captain was the image of miserable indecision. His tanned face
was flushing darkly wilh the inward
struggle. The girl bit her lip at bis
"I can't leave thc bridge now to
fetch it," said the captain suddenly,
with obvious relief at lhe discovery
of this excuse. "I'll give it to you
when wc get to Southampton," he
offered, with unexpected resolution.
She turned her fact away from him
to an angle which left him nothing
to look at, but one of thc prettiest
close-set ears. He gazed at il earnestly for quite a time till he remembered the duty of a navigator. Then
he pulled the steam siren lanyard, and
a wailing, spluttering blast booted
jarringly into the oncoming smother.
Miss Burnard jumped.
"Oh!  what is it?" she cried alarmed.
"The fog," grunted thc captain im-
"You should give me notice when
you are going to make that horrible
noise," she told liim with asperity.
"Well, I'm going to do it again."
he warned her. And he did; it was
long-drawn  and  piercing.
Straight into the wall of fog the
Sylph had steamed, and now it shut
down over her woolly folds of
denseness. The captain rang down his
engines to "half speed," and the yacht
stole ahead with nervous caution. So
thick it was���deepening in the pall of
darkness deadening sight and sound���
that from the bridge to the fo'c'sle
seemed a vague obscurity; while the
dull throb of the engines going slow,
was  scarcely  audible.
"Turn up your collar and button
your jacket around your throat," said
the captain  with  brusqueness.
"Really!" she began, mutinously, defiant  with  surprise.
"Dei as 1 tell you," he said, still
more bluntly
After a moment's rebellious c<nisi<i-
eraliem of the deck, she e.heyed. Such
meekness   was   unusual.
She w.-s perturbing!}/ attractive
with hcr ce.llar tight against hcr slender neck. The brutal captain lit a pipe,
satisfied and serene.
She nn.ved tu lhe bridge rail, straining cars and eyes against the blinding
"Il was unwise tu peer too intently
into   a   sea-fug."   said     the     captain
quietly.   "Yuu   arc   apt   tu   see   things]
thai are nul really there."
It  is never well to generalize. The |
wurds had scarcely left his lips when
a   raucous     fog-horn     shrieked     out ;
hoarsely,    Over their starboard bow
a cruel, gaunt shape loomed huge
with towering menace. The captain
shouted frantically tei the man at thc
helm. |
The wheel spun around madly and
the yachl twisted in a violent curve
from out athwart the pathway of thc
great, oncoming ship. A blurred
figure sprang to thc stranger's side
abaft uf the fore bridge, and yelled
with incoherence. Then the mighty
German liner crawled away, passing
phantom-like amid the shadows; only
lln seething wake, win re her propellers churned the leaden waves
tee  foam,  remained.
In   tliuse  fleeting  seconds of utter-
niusi suspense, grim Death had
threatened and had spared.
Anstice Burnard was pale as whitest marble. A stranger silence had
succeeded the startled, slsouting
voices. She turned to the stalwart
yuung captain, instinctive with pure
feminine surrender and appeal.
"1 ��� I'm very frightened," she con-
fessed,  quite low.
In an instant his eager arm was
around her passionately, and its al-1
must savage pressure brought delicious pain.
"All my life I'll care for you and
guard yem. For I love you, and you're
mine  at  last!"  he  cried.
Triumphing and uncontrolled he
clasped her tei him. Disregardful of
the Sylph's slow progress, careless
of the gaze of wondering sailors he
kissed���and���kissed���the small, dumbfounded face so very near his own.
And she whose first quick impulse
was to wrench herself away, to tell
him how his conduct was beyond all
pardon, even as his storm of breathless wooing was of no avail���she
yielded, never even stirred nor
strove against such madness, merely
nestling closer, unrestrainedly content.
A capricious puff of wind rent the
fog aside just as a veil is torn. Ahead
beyde tbe chalk cliffs of the Wight,
rose up the Needles Lighthouse,
rigid and severe, its lamp flashing
stern across the tumbled greyness of
the waters. In its beam the captain
sobered  humbly.
But the mischief was happily done.
"It's a mercy that the duchess hates
a iog and stayed below," said Anstice
Burnard most demurely. And the cap-

tain, with conviction, heartily agreed.
Through thc twilight of the evening
a point of light swayed, flickering
across thc waves. As the Sylph
steamed into the Solent, a fussy
launch came snorting through the
water, and puffed alongside the yacht.
A merry voice rang out in greeting to
the captain on the bridge.
"Hello, Erelton, old fellow! Had a
pleasant   cruise?"
The captain gasped. Then hc turned
helplessly frum the obnoxious presence of bis best pal in that confounded steam launch to the girl beside
him.   The   maiden   spoke   judiciously.
"I think that photograph���yuu said
you'd give me at Southampton���will
be quite superfluous now."
Imploringly he faced her; alluringly
her eyes  shone.
"The original shall do instead!" said
Anstice Burnard. "1 guessed you

Applying hot bitumen, which seals the concrete, producing a durable and noiseless wearing
Council  and   officials  inspecting  another portion of the Dolarway pavement
Last week the Dolarway Pavement Company
completed the first contract of permanent paving in South Vancouver. The Dolarway pavement is on Victoria Road, between 43rd and
56th Avenues, and it is the first of an extensive
programme of permanent paving which is to
be done in South Vancouver. The Dolarway
Company is now engaged in paving Joyce
Street from Wellington Avenue to Westminster Road, and other contracts are pending.
The accompanying photographs will be doubtless of historic value to South Vancouver.
The popularity of Dolarway Pavement is
being demonstrated by the free use of the new
pavement on Victoria koail. This stretch is
sufficient proof of the possibilities of this permanent form of paving, and following its
rigid inspection by members of the Council
and officials, an opportunity has been given
to pass an opinion on it from first-hand knowledge. It is significant that it is the intention
of the Council to pave quite a number of
streets with this form of pavement when conditions in the financial world improve.
