New Faces in Municipal Contest
Which Promises to be Keen
Ex-Councillor Gold's following deserting him but his Chances are
still strong
Seeuth Vancouver, in facl all the
-niiinieipaliii''- of Greater Vancouver,
ire again in the throes of a municipal
election campaign, Locally the big
guns began to boom this week. Smile
ni them were levelled ai common evils,
fillers were levelled at men's reputations. All were directed to Ihe work
of clearing a way i'.r candidate! to
Teach the honorable pasitioni on tbe
cuncil board.
The Reeveship
In the star attraction 'ei the' -ea>een
���the reeveship campaign���there are
many starters. Reeve Kerr is back
again with the definite object, according to many supporters, "i keeping
the name of S<mtli Vancouver iree
ir in  reproach.
Councillor George V Stevens is In
the field for the reeveship. lie- has
heavy support in the Cedar Cottage
district and in the east end of the municipality. Mr. Stevens has not as yet
made a public announcement. Inn his
presence in the light is geiing tu add
a great deal tee the' uncertainty ol thc
o. .nte-t.
That valiant oldtimer, Donald Burgess, an ex-councillor, and a former
���member e,f the South Vancouver
School Board, has his hai in the ring
for the reeveship. With Wards Seven
ittnd Six solidly behind him. he claims,
there is a fair prospeel of hie- making
a  good strong run.
Ex-Councillor cdward Gold comet
Into the light this year under circumstances very different >���. those Bttend-
ing his entry in 1913, lie' has been
deserted by many of the "Id guard.
Those who fought liis battles mosl
heroically iu 1111��� past have' in several
oi the ward- abandoned Mr. Gold.
lhe militant one is. however, undaunted anel witli characteristic oratorical efforl he has i Ited liis mammoth siege guns againsl the Municipal Hall, ile has noi yel begun i'1
tire, but the halls of South Vancouver
���will doubtless echo before (ie'ld has
finished the campaign.
All Against Gold
li would appear that; each of the
candidates for ilu- ReeVeshlf), including J. Gardiner Campbell are firmly
against Mr. Gold. Thus Reeve Kerr's
thunder is being stolen and though
Mr. Kerr fought the indomitable one
single handed in May and at the last
general municipal election the pleasure of so doing at 111i ��� date is to be
divided up between the Reeve, Mr.
llurgess, Mr. Stevens and Mr. Campbell and those other aspirants wlm arc
likely tee break in before the nominations are made.
Will   Gold   Slip  In?
Thus, divided, the anti-Goldltes are
likely te. meet hard knocks. It i>
claimed by Mr. Cold's followers that
he has just sufficient of a personal following to clean up Oil a large field.
It is worthy of notice, however, that
thc Veiurs' League is nol ai aggressively in favor of Mr. Gold a> in former time,. There i- a decided difference ui opinion among many of thc
members as te. the endorsement of
Mr. Gold, Thomas Houston, well
known in the Fraser Streel district,
leads a strong faction who are lighting tooth and nail againsl Cold. Mr.
Houston will be re membered as one
��� ef the' strong supporters in years
gone by Mr. Houston, ii is laitf, had
sufficient of a following to eleel Mr,
Gold in Ward Five, His withdrawal
greatly weakens the chances of the
former councillor. Mr. Gold is noti
popular in Ceelar Cottage. In Col-
lingwood a strong organization has
been worked up t'e beal tlie Gold I
campaign ii possible. The city vote
went lianl against him at all the previous  election  and   may  nol  this  year
be found upon his side.   The illness
e.f   Mr. A,  Lewis  removes  freem  the
"eebl guard" a  strong    lighter.      On
platform end  through  the press   Mr.
Lewis  in  former  years    championed
Mr. Cold's cause and it is just a question even if Mr.   Lewis  were in  gi od
health  whether  he  would swing in  liis
forces for the energetic proprietor of
<',"lel Lots and one of the finest residences in ilie exclusive West  End,
Councillor Winram
ll   i-  still   saiel   iu   reliable   quarters
that Councillor Winram is going after
' tin- recveship.     I le'  has nol   madi   a
l.public denial of the story so ii is like-
i ly   that   lie   will   be   heard   from.     In
which event much zest will be added
j tn   the affray.
Richard Street in Ward Four
Mr. Richard Streel, a well-known
Main Streel business man is" in the
field feer Ward Four. Ile has had a
wide experience in Municipal affairs
em the prairie and has always taken
a keen interest in Seeiith Vancouver
peelities though never jet a candidate,
Mr. Streel will pul up a strong light
and is said,   if   Councillor   Winram
goes in for the reeveship tei have a
-e,lie| Main Street vote behind him. li
bad been rumored that Mr. Joseph
Mullett would run for the council iu
Ward Four. Nothing officially has
been heard of this, however.
Ward Three  and  Councillor Thomas
That good old War Morse, Councillor Thomas declares that will be
elected this year in Ward Three. The
councilleir will have against him Mr.
F. Mansell. the labor man mid Mr,
Welsh, also a well known labor man.
Councillor Thomas is the doyen of
local councillors. He has many old
friends and the younger men will
have tn light very hard to dash down
the wall of confidence which the people have erected about Councillor
Thomas,

of defeating Mr. Rutledge.
In Ward Two
In Ward Two Mr. Russell. Up to
the   time   of   going   to   press,   was   the
..nly candidate in the field, His
chances of getting elected .y acclamation are small, however, ill view of the
keen interest usually shown by Ward
Two ratepayers in Municipal affairs.
Ward Five, Millar, Hunter and Beaumont
In Warel hive Councillar Millar's
friends are verj numerous. His two
terms have been flawless and the new
men are up against one of the strongest of the 1914 council. Mr. W, S.
Hunter is again in the field. He was
defeated last year, but he is not downhearted. He has many personal
friends  throughout  tlie    ward.      Mr.
Beaumont, another strong man. is also
in the field. Mr, Beaumont also ran
last  year.
Councillor Rowling in Ward Six
Mr. A. J. Lawrence, a well-known
young luisiuess man, an eeldtimer to
tnany South Vancouver people, is
againsl Councillor Rowlings in Wanl
Six.
Mr. W. J. Allen in Ward Seven
Mr. W. J. Allen is running in Warel
Seven against Councillor Twiddy. In
Well informed Sections. Mr. Allen's
election is conceded, He is well
known to many South Vancouver people and is one of the nuest useful citizens in the municipality. Ile put up
a geiod clean tight last year and it is
likely that the ratepayers will take
advantage of the offer of Mr. Allen's
service- for 1915. Councillor Twiddy
has many friends who believe that his
record tiiis year has been very good.
However, neiw thai he has enjoyed
the honor of representing the ward
for a term it is thought that he should
make way  for a  new man.
More- than t��'e hundred and fifty,
most of whom were children, placed
their feel uneler the heavily laden
table-   at    Kalenberg    Hall   Christmas
aftern   and enjoyed  to the full a
feast the like' of which there never
wai before in South  Vancouver.
Snll shrouded in mystery i- the
identity of the man whe, mad. thi-
Christmas cheer possible anel thus the
rule thai good deeds lind one out
seem- t" have been temporarily suspended.
Kalenberg Hall was transformed in-
tee a fairy castle by the clever hands
of the committee in charge. A giant
Christmas tree. well illuminated,
dominated the room. Garlands of
evergreen, and colored lights wen
-Iriing from corner ami freun corner
to the centre where they terminated
in a great crown of roses and evergreens, On either wall, beneath the
rows of decorations were placed in
suitable positions  huge maple leaves.
For al least once' in histeery the
Prince of Peace held absolute sway in
Kalenberg  Hall.
Wiele    table-    had    been    fitted    Upon
trestles across lhe full length of the
hall. Though stoutly built the planks
bent perceptibly uneler the weight of
lhe turkeys, plum pudding and all
that go with an old fashioned Christina-  feast.
That no little mouth in all of South
Vancouver shemld water em Christinas day, the unknown benefactor had
arranged the slaughter of half an
army corp of turkeys. With
this was supplied a great amount of
tender liritish roast beef There was
plenty !��� r all and after the Liberal
orchestra which came freely te. play

boxes   with   the   remains   of   the   feast
and despatched them to the honus of
Unfortunate  people  whe,  were  unable

Good old Santa Claus came in at
the right moment afler dinner and
with the help of a score of attendants
clipped fremi the tree hundreds of
pretty gifts which he distributed
among the youngsters. The old fellow explained upon coming into the
hall that be debated in bis mind for
senile time as to whether to visit Kalenberg or mit. From rumors he had
heard of Kalenberg Hall he had understood ii to be no place for Santa
Claus to visit. However, he had been
assured that politics municipal or otherwise wouhl play no part in the day's
fun  so had decided to Come.

A,  I. LAWRENCE  FOR
WARD SIX
New Candidate    Comes    Forward    in
the    Person    of    Well-known
Young Business Man
EX-MAYOR LOUIS D. TAYLOR, editor of the Vancouver "World"-Heis backed by the working men in the mayoral race
In Ward Six a new man has appeared een the municipal heirizon in the
person of Mr. A. J. Lawrence, wtfo
will contest the ward feir the council
this  year.
Mr. Lawrence is a well-known ..Id-
timer, and formerly had an office at
the corner of Ferris Reiad and Fraser
Street. For seime lime Mr. Lawrence
was a partner of Mr. Robert S. Lewington, the business being conducted
under the name eif the Lawrence
Realty Ceimpany. Mr. Lawrence is
now a partner in the firm of Carloth
& Lawrence.
It will be interesting tei know that
Mr. Lawrence is a young man. He
has seen thirty-three summers anil possesses the vig'ir. the business ability
and general good character to recommend him to the serious consideration
e>f the electors.
Discussing his platform with the
CHINOOK, Mr. Lawrence teiok pains
to point out that one of the main
planks in his platform was assistance
by the municipality in the development of the Xorth Arm of the Fraser
All his interests are upon the Fraser
Slope and he is firmly of the belief
that the day will come wdien the fresh
waters of the Fraser will be one of
Greater  Vancouver  first assets.
Discussing annexation, Mr. Lawrence stated that he was firmly of the
belief that many of the ills now being
suffered  ip   Semth  Vancouver    would
be remedied if Semth Vancouver wcre
annexed to thc city.
He believes that the welfare of all
thc people wemld be best served by
the amalgamation e.f the   municipali-
palities under a common head. This,
Mr. Lawrence states would mean that
better men would be got into the
councils and better work would be accomplished and petty interests would
bc submerged ill the general good of
Greater Vancouver.
Regarding the charges being made
by the B. C. Telephone Company for
all calls beyond Bodwell Road, Mr.
Lawrence said that if elected he would
direct his attentions immediately to
forcing the B. C. Telephone Company
to deal justly by the people beyond
Bodwell. who, be claims, are entitled
tei the same considerations as those
who are living on this side of that
line.
With reference to thc financial posi-
ti'in eii South Vancouver, Mr. Lawrence siateel that if elected hc would
bend every energy towards the conserving eif the district's resources. Iu
his own private business he bad been
able to so arrange things as to meet
the terrible depression which has visited not only South Vance.uver but
all the cities and municipalities of the
Dominion. If elected he would use
the same means in handling the public business as he directed towards his
own affairs.
Mr. Lawrence has been a succe-
business man and though not so
known aiming the newer arrivals,
be;   remembered   by  the   oldtimer-.
being eme of the first to put forth
possibilities of  the Fraser Slope
residential  district.    He    is    a

NOW is the season of the year when all the public

were built.

is held out to the view of lhe audience and new

candidate holds him up to the audience and says nice
words about him, presses Retrenchment on the belly
and Retrenchment squeals and sticks his tongue out.
TO THE CANDIDATES!
ETTERS from the pen of "Observer" have ap-
a peared weekly in the columns of this journal
during the past two months. At times the writer is
rather pointed in his criticism. lie it known that
"Observer's" views are not necessarily the views nf
the Editor of the CHINOOK, and the Editor does
not accept responsibility for them. The editor invites
his readers to send along their correspondence, Anyone finding fault with "Observer's comment or with
anything else appearing in these columns is invited
tn reply through the columns of the CHINOOK,
which are at all times open to receive letters from
readers so long as such letters do not contain slanders
or libels.
During the next two weeks, the CHINOOK will
set aside space on two pages which the various candidates and their friends may fill up with their letters
touching upon municipal affairs. No favor will be
shown. The letters do not need to be signed, though
the writers shall leave their names with the editor as
evidence of good faith. They must be confined, however, to the issues before the people and the candidates
before the people. One restriction only will be made and
that is that letters for the next issue of this paper
must bc in the hands of the printer by Tuesday noon,
January 5. The CHINOOK publishes an edition Wednesday, January 13, so as to be in the hands of the
people before election day. Letters for this issue
must lie in hand Tuesday morning, January 12.

PUBLIC MARKETS
ANDIDATES for the mayoralty of Vancouver
are singularly short of definite policies. It would
not require a very great statesman to see the need in
Vancouver at the present time of a system of public
markets.   Only one public market exists at present in
tlie whole of this leading city.   This market i.s one of
Passing on the candidate next presents the prettily j the greatest disgraces the city possesses and tolerates.
dressed little Miss Civic Purity, whose shy, white
pantaloons show beneath her skirts. Miss Civic Purity does her bow, the candidate shows that she has
movable arms and limbs and she is then propped up
on the table by the waler pitcher for the rest of the
night for the feminine section of the audience to admire. Next the Business-Like-Administration
Brothers, the automatic dancing dolls are produced.
Suspended upon strings the candidate allows the toes
of the gaunt brothers to barely touch the platform and
by clever twists the candidate has them do a bit of
clog dancing.
After all this the burly working man, without
whose strong back the candidate would be unable to
present his show at more than one hall a year, is led
to the platform. He is referred to as being the brains
and brawn of the community. He is the poor downtrodden chap, so the candidate says. Then with deft
fingers from the working man's ears, pockets, from
the hairs of his head, from the tops of his shoes, the
candidate plucks virtues the like of which no man
was ever known to possess.
To make a long story short the civic elections are
upon us again.
This market is not properly or honestly administered
and is practically of no service to the people. Its
management seems to be dominated by the big fruit
dealers' combination. No more care is shown in the
care of the market house than might be shown in the
care of a pig sty. Indeed a pig sty is kept at the rear
of the market premises.
It would be in the interests of the people of Vancouver to open a system of absolutely free public
markets where all the consumers might meet all the
producers for their mutual benefit. The financing of
such a system might be handled by a commission made
up of representatives from the city council and the
municipal councils of the district. The concern might
be financed by the joint municipalities.
If such a policy were put into effect and handled
on good business lines the Province of liritish Columbia would benefit in general and the householders of
Greater Vancouver and the growers for forty miles
about in particular. The cost of living would be lowered and some of the cream Would

FACTS AND FANCIES
By "Observer"
"It's all bluff; it's a lie," reiared ex-Councillor Gold, in
bis usual dogmatic maimer of displaying really a lack of
knowledge nf what he thinks he knows all about, when addressing Ward Three Ratepayers' Association mi Monday
night. Mr. Gold was referring to some statement which
he said Reeve Kerr had made when interviewing Hem. \Y.
J. llowser, attorney-general, with reference to a loan nf
$10,(XK) for relief work during January. Tlu- trouble wiih
Mr. Gold is that he apparently accepts as true every cock-
and-bull story that he wishes to believe and rejects the
truth when it does nol suit him.
It goes without saying that Reeve Kerr never made the
statement which Mr. Gold characterized as "a lie." I hold
no brief for Reeve Kerr nor for any other would-be reeve;
but I do like fair play. And 1 contend that Mr. Gold dues
not know the meaning of the term "fair-play." According to the "Province" report this is what took place when
Reeve Kerr and other councillors interviewed Mr. llowser
to ask for assistance in financing relief work :
"Mr. Bowser said that the government would advance
$10,000 in cash, taking the mile of the municipality for this
amount al five per cent, interest. The Reeve was satisfied
that this would be of great assistance in solving the condition among unemployed in the district. Very little work
is going on now, but in about u month the municipality expects to have some of its own bond money available. The
money today advanced by the Government is to tide over
the intervening time between now and February 1. Relief
wurk will be started next Monday, so that no time will be
lost in getting the fund into action."

trict houses occupied by South Vancouver ratepayers are
fairly plentiful? Why tlle barren unproductive area mentioned,  when  all  around  are  ratepayers   contributing  their
peirtion nf tiie administrative expenses?   Is it not because
of the hope lhat "When South Vanceeiiver is annexed I'i
tiie cily, land values will soar?" Perhaps Mr. Gold will
answer tlii-- question when next he m.units Ilis "platform,"
which I note has already lost one plank���the Little Momi-
tain Park Ilylaw money.
BY THE WAY
MORATORIUM FOR SPECULATORS ONLY
AT the next session of the Legislature the Government promise to bring down a moratorium
measure which will protect those individuals who
have been unable to continue regular payments on
lands owing to abnormal financial conditions brought
about by the war.
It develops that this measure is designed chiefly to
assist thc Government to deal with syndicates and individuals who have gone in heavily for the staking nl'
farm lands throughout the Province,
This class of speculator owed tlie Province of British Columbia last year uver $10,000,000, which sum
was long over due. It wa- stated last year that the
"money stringency" had prevented these gentlemen
front keeping up their payment-.
We all know thai the "money stringency" i- still
upon the Province. Many of those whi> had purchased these farm lands fm- speculative purposes fremi
the Governmenl ami in many cases securing titles
fraudulently, have been unable in -ce where thev can
get monev with which to meet overdue payments
They do nut wish to give up the land-; thev dn ne.t
wi-h to lose the small amounts of actual money pul
up for tlie lands.
During the past year many large laml holders who
were long overdue with their payment- beseeched the
Government lo allow them land fully paid up to the
value of the actual cash they had invested. They
asked that the Governmenl release them from their
liabilities on the great tracts.
Put the Government said that thi- could not be
done.
According to the Government's method of keeping
books this $13,000,000 had been figured as a negotiable asset.
Upon this "asset" the Government had borrowed
$10,000,000 in the London markets.
It is possible that the Government will invoke the
proposed moratorium measure to make it impossible
for the speculators to escape from their $13,000,000
Hty.   At any rate it will permit the Government
lark time as regards this particularly interesting
ct of the land question.

According to Mr. Gold the Reeve said tliey wanted the
$10,000 "lo tide over the period elapsing before lhe $130,000
for work in each of the wards was available." This alleged statement Mr. Gold characterised as "a lie." The fact
of the matter i.s that South Vancouver has about $200,000

money has been promised by the fiscal agents early in the

SOUTH VANCOUVER can have no worse enemy
than the man -who endeavors to work party politics
into municipal affairs. Ratepayers are urged to investigate closely the records and ambitions of all candidates. Any candidate using any party organization
to further his interests should be defeated at all cost.
Such a man is developing the germs of a curse which
will spread like wildfire from South Vancouver
throughout Hritish Columbia. It will be remembered that at the last election an endeavor was made to
"work the machine." That endeavor was hopelessly
unsuccessful and brought discredit to those responsible. Kill the Peanut Politician and register your vote
against the "petty party politics of the parlHh pump."
Further, if the speculators and others who own large
trails of property iii Semth Vancouver would pay their
taxes, amounting in the aggregate tee nearly $600,000,
there would be plenty of money available for carrying out
necessary Improvements and to pay off all bank loans. It
is the Speculators in lands, not the ordinary ratepayers who
are in arrears with their taxes and who are placing South
Vancouver in financial difficulties today,   Why is it that

^nK'HERE is nothing so important to your health and efficiency as the matter with
V��/ y"ur teeth. Sound, useful, beautiful teeth should be yours���teeth that enable
you to bite, chew and smile, in comfort. Decayed teeth cause, not only continual
inconvenience, but permanent ill-health. It is your duty to yourself to economize
in other ways so that you mjij' secure teeth that look natural, feel natural and perform the functions which.Nature allotted to those important members.
i^HEREFORE you should choose your dentist with great care.      It is poor
V^   economy  to buy "bargain  teeth."    Inferior dentistry���poor  materials,  little
knowledge and less care���costs but litlle less than the right kind even ,at the beginning, and certainly is much more expensive in the long run.
^    j .���*���
I EMPLOY only the most modern methods, the greatest care and skill and the
,J-^ best materials. Each' individual case is carefully studied. When I fit you
with my "Nature teeth" they look, fit and feel like the ones Nature gave you. And
you will find my prices no higher than those of ordinary dentists.
GOME in and allow me to examine your mouth, advise you and give you my
estimate of the cost. This will involve no obligation whatever. Make up
your mind now to see to those teeth. Then call, phone or write to me now,
making appointment for examination.

If Canada Were Invaded
By Harry W. Anderson
>t =
Canada's bruf and busy War Parliament Wli al an etui, l-'eir the lirsl
lime in  eever  a  century���since  Sir   I--
aac Brock called together the members e.f the Legiilative Assembly of
Upper Canada in the early days eel
1X12���Canadian legislators had mel te.
leal wilh the Krim i-sucs involved in
ictual warfare. They had ileeiic t:ieir
iv.erk unitedly and well. Sir Robert
Borden   and   Sir   Wilfred   Laurier   had
stood shoulder to shoulder.
Through the open doors came the
sound 'of distant martial music���in
turn the roll eif the National Anthem, a real prayer now; the threih e,f
'Rule   Britannia,"   an   inspiration   and
i determination; the strains of "()
Canada/' the testimony oi Dominion
participation. Even as Parliament
was finishing ils legislative lalie.r lhe
citizen soldiery was hastening to their
sterner  task.
Clad in his khaki uniform, the Minister of Militia rose to infeirm lhe
House of the spirit that dominated
Canada. Over 100,000 Canadians had
already volunteered for service. Only
22,000 were needed at lhe front at
llle present time, lull incoming trains
were bringing 27,1)00. "They are
climbing em the trains so persistently
that we can't keep them eeff," commented the Minister, laconically, Tlle
silence was broken hy hearty cheering.
Then, unexpectedly and spontaneously, the war came home. The personal dominated Parliament. Members talked in husky tones.
"While giving heed to the words
of the Divine Hook, 'Let not him that
girdeth on his harness boast himself
as he that putteth it oft"" declared
Dr. Michael Clark, at the close of a
thrilling sentence, "we have solemnly
determined that, come what may. in
this light there can bc no let-up. Wc
must light to its termination���victory
for what we believe to hc the right."
"lie speaks from his heart," exclaimed the Minister of Militia warmly. "I may tell the House something
it probably deies not know. Our colleague from Red Deer has given his
son to the service of the country."
Again the cheering of the members
broke forth afresh.
Sir George Poster was the lasl
speaker. He began in a voice that
was barely audible. "We are met in
Parliament as a band eif Canadians,"
said lie. "That generosity which
sometimes lies more or less concealed
in partisan or racial disputes, has
hurst all those ignoble bonds, and the
feeling of pure patriotism, love of
country, and devotion to what the
Hag symbolizes, has come in the front
disfigured by no mean or petty purpose.
"The one solemn thing for us tei remember," proceeded the veteran, "is
that there is more to war than the
lirst march out of the troops, lhe
lirst blare of the trumpet, the first
Haunting of tiie Hag. What there is
more to war has been demonstrated
by Belgium in these last thirteen or
fourteen days, when the homes of

bent on attacking the north coast eef
America, lhe teell which invaders
weiuld have lo pay those guns would
be staggering, while the narrow passages ol lhe northern entrances could

foreign pilot een that coast, with the
lights of lhe marine service extinguished, would he a momentous one.
And back of marine disaster land invasion would he confronted by the
Rocky Mountains, with their marvellous natural fortifications. N'eene liul
a madman would seek to invade and
conquer Canada from the  I'acilic.
Any attack must come from invasion on the Atlantic coast. Here the
enemy musl silence tlle garrisons at
llle forts of Halifax and Quebec
even make a successful landing. Then
a huge task lies before them. Tin-
size of the country, ihe huge tracts
of almost unsettled and rocky land,
the comparatively peior railway facilities present a gigantic military problem. What the Boers were able to
do to embarrass the Hritish in the
South African war Canadians would
do over again with infinitely greater
advantage and natural assistance than
was possessed hy the yeoman armies
of   Paul   Kmger.
Canada's voluntary militia is not
to be sneered at. General Sir John
French, neiw commander-in-chief of
the Hrilish forces in Europe, ill 1010,
"d General Sir Ian Hamilton, last
year, both al the conclusion of lluer-
oiigh inspections which covered the
��� '-e Dominion, testified lo efficiency
and strength of the Dominion's citizen  soldiery.
Under section  10 eel' the  Militia  Acl.
the whole manhood of the nation, between the ages of eighteen and sixty   years,   is   "available   for   service   in
''' '"*'���' "     Tlie   rapidly   expanding
liopulatii.n ol Canada stands already
at nearly eight millions, of whom it
was assumed by Sir Ian Hamilton
lhat about one million males were in
all respects lit f.er active service. This
number, less the active militia, forms
ihe reserve militia of the country, for
which no sort oi military organization al present exisls. The custom of
keeping up muster rolls of those liable feir service, which obtained until
comparatively recently, is now in a-
beyance.
Approximately, according to Sir
Ian Hamilton's report, 2".<X)0 riding
horses and 26.000 draught and pack
animals would be needed for the field
army aleme. In Canada there are in
all some 2,400,000 horses of all lortS,
of which about 20 per cent, or rather
less than half a million, are believed
to be suitable for military purposes.
Under the Militia Acl thc number can
hc taken under requisition. Owing
to the expense entailed, litlle has yet
been done towards inspecting and registering tlle horses eif the country.
Nor has any steps been taken towards
classifying motor cars and motor lorries.
Th�� relation between slocks of
arms, ammunition, clothing and stores
-d and stocks required em mobilization show some deficiency in howitzers for the field army and in equipment, but are generally up to standard.
Thc  strength  of  the  Canadian  militia in  actual training is as  follows:

For 1914 these numbers have been
considerably increased, while Sir Ian
Hamilton found the requirements of
the war organization to lie as follows.

SIX   REASONS
WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF
CREOSOTED WOOD
BLOCK PAVEMENTS
ITS DURABILITY���Does nol cruniljle or pulverize under the densest traffic; second only to granite
blocks
ITS EASE OF REPAIR���No difficulty being experienced in removing and replacing tbe blocks; no
expensive plant or skilled workmen required.
ITS SANITARY QUALITIES���Creosote being a
highly antiseptic and waterproofing material ins'.ant-
ly destroys all germs, prevents the absorption of
street filth and consequent decay.
ITS NOISELESSNESS���The rattle and bang of
vehicles passing over its smooth surface absorbed
and muffled till the quiet of the. dii< toad is obtained.
ITS DUSTLESSNESS���Does not pulverize; the
heaviest traffic only pounding down the wood fibres
to offer the greater resistance.
TTS CLEANLINESS���Having a smooth surface and
being waterprool it does not differ in this respect
from asphalt.
We manufacture blocks of the highest possible
standard, the verv best materials only being used and
in the DOMINION WOOD BLOCKS we believe
we produce an article that has no equal.

The liabilitj of the Canadian military forces is strictly territorial. Not

���er non-permanent, can, in hi- capacity
as.a Canadian militiaman, volunteer
for service overseas, cither iii peace

the Militia Acl The primary duly of
Canada is held te- be to make all reasonable provision, up tee the limit e,f
its res.mice-, iur defence against in-
va-iien of its uwn territories
Are. then, Canada's military forces
adequate for home defence? The iir-t
factor, of course, is the lighting force
to be encountered; the next, the time
iu   which  that   force  can  gel  to  wurk.
A state entering into war   from   iis
iiuriiial ceenilitiiiii of peace is al a ter-
rible disadvantage when pitted against
iln- state which is reaely. and even engaged iii warfare-. For the ways of
war an- changing just as fast a-, nr
faster than, the way- of peace. The
railway ami the wireless are busy eating inlee space and time. Distance is
ceasing to servi as any material protection. Operations which formerly
leeeek nueiiili- are now carried out in
weeks, and will be carried mi in elays
���perhaps hours.
In 1910 Field Marshal Sir John
French reported as follows: "At pre*
���ent ii would not be possible to put
the militia in the field in a lit condition tee undertake active operations until after the lapse of a considerable
period." Last year General Sir Ian
Hamilton reported progress, "Since
1910," he said, "great progress has
been made in many directions, Or��
ganization is very markedly more
thorough; training has been leveled up
in senile respects ami. uneler the supervision of the general -talT the education of all ranks, and especially of
the higher ranks, has been improved.
Let Sir Jiihn French's 'considerable
period' be represented by 'a'; the militia sheeiild neiw be able to undertake
active operations in time. I honestly think thai as great an advance has
been made during the past three years
as it wemld he- reasonable i" expect,
seeing that the stimulus of danger
has been entirely wanting, But there
is in, scope for any resting on the
eiars. Let there be none; and if the
recommendations I have made are ill
the main carried ��� >nt. another four "r
five years should put Canada quite at
her ease as tee  raids. Kreat eir  small."
A summary of the recommendations
ie, which Sir Ian Hamilton alludes are
a- follows :
Increase in thc instructional staff 'if
the active militia.
Localization of instruction in divisional areas by means of provisional
schools.
Increase in the remuneration ol "i-
ficer instructors.
Direct engagement from outside
sources of some of the sergeant instructors.
Increase in the peace establishment
of  the  active  militia.
Amalgamation nf weak uniis.
Sixteen days' paid training for rural troops as well as i"r citj  t - irps.
Training of rural troops at "thee
times than during camp period.
Assimilation ol permanent force
units, if concentrated, to the regular
model,
Interchange of permanent force and
regular units,
Scientific treatment of horse registration in peace.
Institution of a national resen e
pr, paration of classified musti r-
rolls eii men liable and fit for bi rvi :i
Organization on paper of the re-
gervi   militia.
The recommendations,   in    ���
can be cl issed as change - in organization and improved  methods ol   training and organization.
In event of the Canadian militia I el--
ing tin- lielel at home to rep. 1 tin
in,.: invasion it- first eastern organisation would probably be made upon
the lines laid down by Field Marshal
Sir foltn French, That organization
would comprise one cavalry division
of four brigades, five army divisions,
anel iwe' field forces and Karris.ens.

property holder on the Southern slope
between Main Street and Victoria
Road.
Referring to the plans eef the Canadian Northern Railway which, will
call feir a tunnel from the Fraser
River to False Creek. Mr. Lawrence
said that he advanced the idea of
having the preipeised tunnel locateel between  Fraser and  Main    Street.      If
elected he wemld weerk hard tu have
the council take this matter up energetically   with   the   proper  officials.
Discussing the purchase of Municipal supplies, Mr. Lawrence stated
that all the supplies fur the Municipal
Hall, where possible, should be bought
in Semth Vancouver from local merchants for the general good of the district and all supplies, whether benight
locally or not, should where possible
be the product of B. C. industry, the
development   of   which   is   our     great
salvation.
This firsl force, or an organization
approximating ii- arrangement ami
strength, could bc placed in the field

upon the completion of mobilization,

call  feir volunteers  would  meet  with
��� tremendous response, ,<n<l practically the whole male- population, between
the ages of if .md (H years, would be
instantly  available  for   service.
The command and -laff ��� ���! tlie Canadian forces are. te. some extent, modelled un the lines -if ilie Imperial
army. The Militia Council, of which
the Minister "i Militia ia the heael. i-
��� body which, in times of peace, is
charged with thc functions -ei a commander-in-chief, In time of war .,
commander-in-chief i- specially Selected and appointed by the Government. The officer thus appointed
lakes supreme control of the entire
Canadian army and upun him rests
the  direction  e��f  the  entire   campaign
To tlie commander-in-chief would
be deputed the responsibility feer resisting any threatened invasion, anel
upeeii his efficient disposal of the
Ir..,.p- anel strategic ability would
largely depend the length and scope
i if thc enemy's incursion.
While the ready army undertook the
first check thousands of recruits
we.iilel be renuuling into shape anel
coming to the assistance "f their comrades. The horsemen frum the prairie provinces would be exceedingly effective in service. Of them Sir Ian
Hamilton was eulogistic. "The- Western cavalry," saiel lie- in his report,
"are fine. The physique of the men
i- jusl right.   They rille daring!)  and
well. Tliey are keen a- mustard, and
their Inerses. tin- bronchoes of the
prairie, Bhow blood and stamina."
These corps would be an extremely
formidable force, augmenting with
their ela-li the Steady cavalry of the
Eastern pr.evinces. The artillery, tei",
could he- depended upon tee give a
good account of themselves. "Certainly most eei the militia artillery I
have seen surprised me by the stand-
are!- they hael attained," declared Sir
Ian. "The men arc aide to riele anil
bring their guns iniee action with considerable dash. ! have seen them
move fast, keeping their interval-, for
quite a distance along a narrow, had
winding track thruiigli the forest."
Bul lhe- backbone of Canada's defence weiuld probably be her rural
troops and volunteers. "Their hearts
are in the righl place." was the Hritish Inspector-General of the Overseas Forces' comment, "and it i- necessary tu add in fairness that their
physical fitness also, as well a- the
habitudes of their daily life, wemld go
far ill practice to bridge over the want
ul elementary military training which
seems at lirst sight tei separate them,
tu iheir disadvantage, frum their comrades in the city corps. These latter
suffer freem the prevailing Canadian
habit oi preferring any other mode of
locomotion to making an appeal i<e
their legs, whose chief function seems
very uiten tei consist in standing at a
street corner waiting for a car. Tin-
rank and file eef the rural ceirps can.
fremi the lirst day. cover a lot of
ground. Again the rural men are
quite at home in bivouac. They settle down right away and know how
to accommodate themselves to heat
and cold, wet and dry, wind ir calm.
They can light tires, cook rations,
make bridges, big trenches, mend
carts and. in fact, are born campaigners ready-made in many of the essentials eef campaigning. Here we have a
true military virtue, covering many
defeiencies in quickness, knowledge
ami skill, and this virtue at least I
am convinced myself is possessed by
the rank and file, and indeed, by all of
the rural corps."
It would be againsl such a force, inspired by the spirit of defence of
i -inr and loved ones, that any invad-
ng enemy musl throw itself if il
succeed in reducing the coast defences
and fortifications with the heavy guns
if its fleet. The firsl objective of thi

Mrs. A. Crossland
4520 MAIN  STREET
MR. DONALD DOWNIE
a mediocrity. I iln nut pretend to
distribute these qualifications. Tliey
have bntli done some valuable weerk
(for the railroads.) But without malice now���arc tliey not in tiie lightweight class���metaphorically and
charitably speaking. Hut, is it prudent to oppose them merely by seeme
thin-skinned  respectability.
Tlle question is���have we on this
bargain counter of second hand
Mayors, a Burgomaster, par excellence.' One su naturally indicated; su
indispensible; see desirable; so esteemed and trusted of every man, woman
and child in the constituency, that
should the Germans sail in, as at Mat"
ines or Lille or Teremonde, and carry
him off, we should all open our hearts
and pockets to pay a King's ransom
for his release. Is that the kind of
Mayor we are going tei nominate���
one who has a love of his city like
Burgomaster Max of Brussels? Or
on the contrary, as this is a year of
danger, do we wish to expose only
our cheaper articles, whose loss we
may not so much deplore. And are
all good men timid, and all the large
taxpayers afraid of the paper pellets
of election mud?
Really distinguished men shrink
irom the Presidency eef a city council in our country. I know. Why is
it? Why'do they abandon the place
of honor so often tei the needy and
the self-seeking? 1 asked a certain
Eminence une day wdiy he would neit
accept a certain nfTice and give us the
benefit of his character and standing.
With an expressive glance at tiie actual incumbent, be said, "Well, 1 sin mid
rather be asked. Why are you not
there? than be asked, How the devil
did you get there?' "
Xow. every business man I meet
exclaims���in his exprcsive vernacular���"What's the mailer with Vancuuver?" And une disgruntled elector
cries���Any administrative change
would certainly be better���simply because it could not, by any species of
stupidity, natural, ur acquired, possibly be  worse.
Now. a mayor, as the ���derivation of
the term implies���Majores-palatii���
is presumed to be not the worst; nor
the average; nor a mere ordinary citizen���like the rest of us���not yet one
of "the men in the street." He is
selected because he is "Mayor," the
biggest���le nicilleur���the best. He
should be our "creme de la crcme."
And if this be so In peaceful and prosperous moments, how much more is
it true of troublous times! For under
the incoming regime anything may
happen. Some important civic history
is certain to be made; as some national history certainly shall be written.
Would it not he well to engage a
manager with high incentives rather
than one who has a great future (behind  him).
Xow, have we such an outstanding
candidate in tlle ranks? Or else where?
Let us not bc rude or disagreeable
about it. For this is the season of
Good Will to Men. But, without making invidious distinctions what I have
indicated here is the opinion held by
"the man in the street." It may be
wrong. Not that any one of these
tried and true veteran mayors can
be said to be lacking in intelligence.
Nor in ability. In a dangerous and
gymnastic kind of pushfulness. Let
us also fondly hope that they are not
devoid of some high and disinterested
public spirit; and of altruistic and unselfish aims. But are they men of the
measure  and   material   out   of  which
herd mayor! arc maele? Men tu
whom tin- vulgar emolument weiuhl be
an insult, eer a negligible quantity; a
mere   servant's   tip.   which   should   be
passed up at once t" the pueir, ur to
tin-    hospital*,      Til   wile,111    hnlleir      nr
public usefulness is ilu- Inducement���
pure ami simple,
For this is a moment in the history
oi   cities���and     e>f     provinces���when
���.cri'eiis communities everywhere are
putting forward only iheir purest and
their neelilesl anel their besl. As Presidents; as commanders; as prime minister-; and as burgomasters. In uld
England; iu  Prance; iu the   United
Slates; ill Canada; in great countries
and great cities, At tlle battle front ���
and in lhe rear; men are acting nn the
inspiring cry���"The country is in danger." The career is eenly open to
talent. Thai is tlle spirit Ot democracies. Let us imitate them here.
The King cried senleiitieuesly,���"Wake
up. England." Lei us follow his lead,
anel Wake up Vancouver. Or. in other
terms���"l.apalrie en danger." Such
might be the watchword fur the January elections. (Such wai once e,r
twice the rallying cry nf Prance and
��� ef England. And ihey are regenerated eir rejuvenated by it. And uld
abuses���and uld enemies���have been
swept away together.)
"The Country was in danger." 11
drew people teegether. 11 amused a
nation in arms like a train nf gun
powder. It obliterated parochial distinctions. Personalities were forgotten, And all lhe petty party pulities
eif the parish pump. Adversity may
have that usefulness feer us.
"That like the toad, ugly and venomous
"Bears yet a precious jewel in its
head."
Birth and rank and station resign
their claims then, ill a city-or nation.
The country needs a man. Thc career is open tn talent. It is neit a ques-
tion then, nf who slinuld seek tn lead.
There is a crisis. And at such times,
Unknown   burn-leaders   eef     men     are
recognized as by   a    second   sight;
which the sense nf self-preservatinii
gives. Merit and competence stand
forth, as Minerva sprang, full-armed,
cap-a-pie, fmni the brain eif Jove.
Selfishness and mediocrity retire tn
their accustomed obscurity. And wc
salute the chief we sought. And we
willingly lake up lhe step behind him.
The critics and the theorists are silenced, h'nr il is imt then a question
of the form nf constitution by which
at such a moment a city or a country
shall be governed. But whether we
shall have a country eer a city at all,
fur which tn make any feirni a constitution,
"For forms nf government let   fools
contest.
"Whatever's      best    administered    is
best."
We have seen tlle conduct nf some
great peoples, lately in great national
crisises. Thc lesson is Illuminating.
Let us study it. Histeery is philosophy  teaching by  experience.
For so we should act as the leading democracies eif the world. The
United States���which is neither the
tirst���nor yet the last in the order of
greatness���found that nothing but its
strong man and strung methods cnuld
purify its stables. The river has been
turned on. The man of Herculean
character is doing his work. Party
pulities smell sweeter than they did
there. They have often corrupted us
by their methods. This time we may
profit by their example.
Tiie French people knew feir some
time past that they were silting on
the edge of a volcano, The democracy was in danger. See how they
acted and let us apply the lesson to
our case.
Those political mediocrites they had
been satisfied with in peaceful years;
at the war office; and foreign office;
at the bead of the army; and a chief
of state, in the Elysecs palace���
would not dei feir thc day of danger.
Intuitively, anil with a prescience of
coming events, lhe people selected
their strongest men. They went outside the office-seekers altogether.
(Let us do tlie same.) There was a
strung man and a safe man; in the
state; as there always is somewhere;
a man nf character; a great patriot
and a great lawyer. They temk him
from his books and bis briefs. The
aspiring politicians bowed themselves
out of the race. They made a ministry of all the talents. Let us do this
alsee and we shall be saved.
Britain for years refused lee sec hcr
crisis ceiming. She put her head in
the sand. But when it came, there
was by chance alsei, "the scholar in
politics." And he called the best to
liis side, in council and in camp. The
others had the grace to retire.
So that is why Britons sleep securely now, on land and sea. And in Vancouver and in  Penang.
And from Calais to Basle, And fremi
the Gulf of Georgia to the Falkland
Islands.
This is the result of the policy of
the appointment of thc fittest in England and France. Let us follow it out.
They have saved themselves by their
energy, and they shall save the rest
of us by their example.
Let us apply this large principle tei
our little civic affairs. Let us look
for our strong man and true. Let us
select such a First Magistrate as a
British or a French city would select,
such a First Magistrate as a British
or a French city would select. Let
Us eliminate petty personalities 'and
party politics which have nothing to
do with matters municipal, and wpich
have been the bane of civic government, and thc cause of its low tone,
in all this rude, blundering but interesting frontier civilization of our New-
World.
These ex-mayors are very brave to
appeal upon their records for justification. But let us forget unpleasant reproaches if we can, at this festive season. And by high-class nominations
we shall purify and elevate the campaign. We shall eliminate the mud of
False Creek; and avoid the ill-smelling city market; and the blundering
Incompetence and extravagance of
Progress   Club   donations;   and    civic

Pageants, and contributions tu Admen's banquets���who return tei a foreign country tei advertise us adversely;
and thc rotten pipes of Pittsburg; and
the mure rotten system e>f legalized
vice; and the spending of revenues
where it dues the greatest good to the
smallest number; while women and
children cannot lind from Stanley Park
tee Hastings Townsite one of the most
primitive and elementary requisites of
civilization.
Yet we believe in Vancouver. Picturesque seat of world commerce!
Outpost of Empire! Favored of the
guds���not of man! Gateway to Asia!
With an Undoubted future (and not
behind  her  either).
Yer eene likes tee close the eyes and
recall her. in her unspoiled virgin
possibilities, and her fe.rest setting, as
twenty odd years ago, on our way
around the world, she first burst upun
the vision, Man had not disfigured
her. The plague eef leieusts, with their
twenty-five foot man-traps, had nut
yet alighted on her verdant slupes
from beyond the American lines. They
were still occupied in disfiguring
their own country. They had not yet
drawn premier, mayeers and councillors into their vacant hits. The verdant fir Iree, which we 9eem to detest su much, had not yet given place
tu the weeds and thistles on tlle undulating slupes uf a city which might
house the population of I.uiid'in in
Comfort and give every resident light
and elbow room,
Yet we believe in her; and in any
Community that can emerge with 30
much of its beauty and its credit and
its resources after so much misgov-
ernment. It gives ground feir optimism.
Webster remarked to Lord Brougham thai hc was shocked to learn that
there were 100,000 professional thieves
in London. The English statesman
replied that he considered it a matter
for pride. And on being asked to explain he answered: "Well, where can
you show mc another city that can
support a hundred thousand thieves?"
So let us keep our faith in Vancouvei ;
And let tis elect a man as our mayor
(and in each other officer of honor)
towards whom we may look up���and
not look down. One who knows. One
who has seen the world. One who
could say to his fellow-citizens, with
old Themistoclcs���"I cannot teach you
to play thc lute, but I can tell you
how, out eif a small village, to make
a great city."

Gentlemen,���The moment is critical. Things are not well in the burg.
(Nor in the country.) Ynu will admit that. And when the ceiuntry���e,r

a mediocrity. 1 dn nut pretend to
distribute these qualifications. They
have both dune some valuable wnrk
(for the railroads.) But without malice now���are they not in the lightweight class���metaphorically ' and
charitably speaking. But, is it prudent tu oppose them merely by sume
thin-skinned respectability.
The question is���have we on this
bargain counter of second hand
Mayors, a Burgomaster, par excellence' One -sn naturally indicated; sn
indispensible; su desirable; su esteemed and trusted of every man, woman
and child in thc constituency, that
slinuld the Germans sail in, as at Malines or Lille or Teremonde, and carry
him off, we should all open our hearts
and pockets to pay a King's ransom
for his release. Is that the kind of
Mayor we are going tu nominate���
one who has a love of his city like
Burgomaster Max of Brussels? Or
on the contrary, as this is a year of
danger, do we wish tn expose only
our cheaper articles, whose loss we
may not so much deplore. And arc
all good men timid, and all the large
taxpayers afraid of the paper pellets
nf election mud?
Really distinguished men shrink
from the Presidency nf a city council in our country. I know. Why is
it? Why do they abandon the place
of honor so often tn the needy and
thc self-seeking? 1 asked a certain
Eminence une day why he weiuld neit
accept a certain office and give us the
benefit of his character and standing.
With an expressive glance at the actual incumbent, he said, "Well, I slinuld
rather be asked. Why are you not
there? than be asked, Hnw the devil
did ynu get there?' "
Now, every business man I meet
exclaims���in his expresivc vernacular���"What's the matter with Vancouver?" And one disgruntled elector
cries���Any administrative change
would certainly be better���simply because it could not, by any species of
stupidity, natural, or acquired, possibly be  worse.
Now, a mayor, as the derivation of
the term implies���Majjores-palatii���
is presumed to be not the worst; nor
the average; nor a mere ordinary citizen���like the rest of us���not yet one
of "the men in the street." He is
selected because he is "Mayor," the
biggest���le meilleur���the best. He
9hould be our "cremc de la creme."
And if this bc so in peaceful and prosperous moments, how much more is
it true of troublous times! For under
the incoming regime anything may
happen. Some important civic history
is certain to be made; as some national history certainly shall be written.
Would it not be well tu engage a
manager with high incentives rather
than one who has a great future (behind  him).
Now, have we such an outstanding
candidate in the ranks? Or else where?
Let us not bc rude or disagreeable
about it. For this is the season of
Good Will to Men. But. without making invidious distinctions what I have
indicated here is thc opinion held by
"the man in the street." It may be
wrong. Not that any one of these
tried and true veteran mayors can
bc said to be lacking in intelligence.
Nor in ability. In a dangerous and
gymnastic kind of pushfulncss. Let
us also fondly hope that they are not
devoid of some high and disinterested
puhlic spirit; and of altruistic and unselfish aims. But are they men of thc
measure   and   material   out  of  which
lord mayors are maele? Men to
whom the vulgar emolument would he
an insult, nr a negligible quantity; ;���
mere servant's tip, which should be
passed up al mice tee the pneir, ur tu
tin-   hospitals.     Tu   whum   luuinr     ur
public usefulness is thc Inducement���
pure and  simple.
Por this is a moment in the history
of cities���and of provinces���when
scrieius cuiiimunitifs everywhere are
putting forward unly their purest and
their neiblest and their best. As Presidents; as commanders; as prime minister-;   and   as   burgomasters.     In   old
England; in Prance; in the United
States; iu Canada; in great countries
and great cities. Al the battle front���
and in the rear; men arc acting un the
inspiring cry���"The country is in danger." The career is emly open to
talent. That is the spirit of democracies. Let us imitate them here.
Tlu- King cried scntentiously,���"Wake
up. England." Let us follow his lead,
and Wake up Vancuuver. Or, in other
terms���"Lapatrie en danger." Such
might bc the watchword for the January elections. (Such was once or
twice the rallying cry nf France i'ni!
of England. And they are regenerated nr rejuvenated by it. And old
abuses���rand old enemies���have been
swept away together.)
'The country was in danger." It
drew people together. It aroused a
nation in arms like a train nf gun
powder. It obliterated parochial distinctions. Personalities were forgotten. And all the petty party politics
of the parish pump. Adversity may
have that usefulness for us.
"That like the toad, ugly and venomous
"Bears yet a precious jewel in its
head."
Birth and rank and station resign
their claims then, in a city .or nation.
The cniintry needs a man. The career is open to talent. It is not a question then, of whu should seek to lead.
There is a crisis. And at such times,
unknown burn-leaders uf men are
recognized as by a second sight;
which the sense of self-preservation
gives. Merit and competence stand
forth, as Minerva sprang, full-armed,
cap-a-pie, from the brain of Jove.
Selfishness and mediocrity retire tu
their accustomed obscurity. And we
salute the chief we sought. And we
willingly take up the step behind him.
The critics and the theorists are silenced. Feir ii is not then a question
j of the form nf constitution by which
at such a moment a city or a country
shall be governed. But whether we
shall have a country or a city at all,
fur which to make any form a constitution,
"Fur  forms of government let    fools
contest.
"Whatever's      best    administered    is
best."
We have seen the conduct of some
great peoples, lately in great national
crisises. The lesson is illuminating.
Let us study it. History is philosophy teaching by experience.
For so wc should act as the leading democracies of the world. The
United States���which is neither the
tirst���nor yet the last in the order of
greatness���found that nothing but its
strung man and strung methods could
purify its stables. The river has been
turned on. The man of Herculean
character is doing his work. Party
politics smell sweeter than they did
there. They have nftcn corrupted us
by their methods. This time wc may
profit by their example.
The French people knew for some
time past that they were sitting on
the edge of a volcano. The democracy was in danger. Sec how they
acted and let us apply tlle lesson to
our case.
Those political mediocrites they had
been satisfied with in peaceful years;
at the war office; and foreign office;
at the head of the army; and a chief
of state, in the Elysees palace���
would not do for the day of danger.
Intuitively, and with a prescience of
coming events, the people selected
their strongest men. They went nut-
side the office-seekers altogether.
(Let us do the same.) There was a
strung man and a safe man; in the
state; :>9 there always is somewhere;
a man eif character; a great patrint
and a great lawyer. They took him
from his books and his briefs. The
aspiring politicians bowed themselves
nut of the race. They made a ministry of all the talents. Let us do this
also and we shalt be saved.
Britain fur years refused to see her
crisis mining. She put her In d in
the sand. But when it came, here
was by chance alsn, "the scholar in
politics." And he called the best to
his side. In council and in camp. The
others had the grace to retire.
So that is why Britons sleep securely now, on land and sea. And in Vancouver and in  Penaug.
And from Calais to Basle, And from
thc Gulf nf Georgia to the Falkland
Islands.
This is the result of the policy of
the appointment of the fittest in England and France. Let us follow it out.
They have saved themselves by their
energy, and they shall save the rest
of us by their example.
Let us apply this large principle to
our little civic affairs. Let us look
for our strong man and true. Let. us
select such a First Magistrate as a
British or a French city would select,
such a First Magistrate as a British
or a French city would select. Let
us eliminate petty personalities '.and
party politics which have nothing to
do with matters municipal, and which
have been the bane of civic government, and thc cause of its low tone,
in all this rude, blundering but interesting frontier civilization of our New
World.
These cx-mayors are very brave to
appeal upon their records for justification. But let us forget unpleasant reproaches if we can, at this festive season, And by high-class nominations
we shall purify and elevate thc campaign. We shall eliminate the mud of
False Creek; and avoid the ill-smelling city market; and the blundering
incompetence and extravagance of
Progress   Club   donations;   and    civic

ALL ARE WELCOME
Pageants, and contributions to Admen's batiquetB���who return to a foreign country to advertise us adversely,
and the rotten pipes of Pittsburg; and
the more rotten system nf legalized
vice; and the spending of revenues
where it does the greatest good to the
smallest number; while women and
children cannot find from Stanley Park
to Hastings Townsite one of the most
primitive and elementary requisites of
civilization.
Yet we believe in Vancouver. Picturesque seat of world commerce I
Outpost of Empire I Favored of the
gods���not of man! Gateway to Asia!
With an undoubted future (and not
behind hcr either!.
Yet one likes to close thc eyes and
recall her, in her unspoiled virgin
possibilities, and hcr forest setting, as
twenty odd years agn, nn our way
around the world, she first burst upem
thc vision. Man had not disfigured
her. The plague e.f locusts, with their
twenty-live feint man-traps, had not
yet alighted on hcr verdant slopes
from beyond the American lines. They
were still occupied it: disfiguring
their own country. They had not yet
drawn premier, mayors and councillors into their vacant lots. The verdant fir tree, which we seem to detest so much, had not yet given place
to the weeds antl thistles on thc undulating sleipcs of a city which might
house Ihe population of London in
comfort and give every resident light
and elbow room.
Yet we believe in her; and in any
community that can emerge with so
much of its beauty and its credit and
its resources after so much misgov-
ernment. It gives ground for optimism.
Webster remarked to Lord Brougham that he was shocked to learn that
there were 100,000 professional thieves
in London. The English statesman
replied that hc considered it a matter
for pride. And on being asked to explain hc answered: "Well, where can
you show mc another city that can
support a hundred thousand thieves?"
So let us keep our faith in Vancouvei:
And let us elect a man as our mayor
(and in each other officer of honor)
towards whom we may look up���and
not look down. One who knows. One
who has seen the world. One who
could say to his fellow-citizens, with
old Themistocles���"I cannot teach you
to' play the lute, but I can tell you
how, out of a small village, to make
a great city."
