SOUTH VANCOUVER, B.C., CANADA,   SATURDAY, JUNE 13, 1914.
Price 5 cents
South Vancouver Will Have Her Own Representative in
Dominion Parliament for First Time���South Vancouver and
Point Grey Will Now Form Riding of Vancouver South
Redistribution Splits Vancouver City into two
Ridings and Places Burnaby in New
Westminster Riding���South Vancouver Gets
Fair Deal and New Order Will Lend Zest to
The Political Life of the Community
Much interest has been aroused
throughout South Vancouver over
the Redistribution Bill, which is to
be brought down in the House of
Commons.
In the re-subdivision of British Columbia for Dominion electoral purposes, South Vancouver, with Point
Grey, has been designated as the
constituency of Vancouver, South.
This will mean that at the next
election f'T the House of Commons,
the people of South Vancouver will
have the privilege of electing a member of their own.
Vancouver will henceforth have
two seats���Vancouver and Burrard.
It is said that there was a great
fight between the Liberals and Conservatives on this point. Mr. H. H.
Stevens, M. P., wanted Vancouver to
have two members to be elected at
large, and it was only after very
strenuous fighting that the city was
finally cut in two.
British Columbia will henceforth
have thirteen members in the House
<ef Commons in place of seven of
days gone by. The representation
of the province will, doubtless, he
materially changed as a result of this
redistribution.
Though Point Grey is combined
in the new riding of Vancouver,
South, the population of Seiuth Vancouver being three or four times as
great as that of Point Grey, the new
order of things will mean that South
Vancouver will have the balance of
power, and in the next parliament
will have her own representative in
Ottawa to fight for a square deal for
the municipality from thc Dominion
treasury.
Just who this representative is
likely to be cannot very well be
guessed at from present conditions.
That the Conservatives have a strong
hold on South Vancouver is well
known, hut the fact that South Vancouver is largely a working man's
constituency will mean that ihe Liberals or the Radicals will be heard
from  in  no uncertain  tones.
When the next election comes
around there will be no scarcity of
candidates in any of the parties. At
the present moment, Mr. R. C. Hodgson looms large in the Conservative
Tanks. As for thc Liberals���a prominent Liberal said, upon hearing the
news of the redistribution, that there
were so many strong men in the
Liberal partv at this time that it
would bc difficult to say just who
w.euld likely turn up in the event of
an  election being brought on.
The fact that South Vancouver has
come into her own, so far as the Dominion Parliament is concerned, will
lend a zest to the political life of
the district. It will also mean that
the Provincial authorities will have
to bring on a redistribution before
the next provincial election, when
South Vancouver, on the basis of
population, should have two or three
representatives   at   Victoria.
At present South Vancouver makes
up a small part of the riding of
Richmond, which is larger in area,
it is said, than the whole of England,
some parts of the riding not yet having been explored.
Following are the divisions which
have been made on the Lower Mainland;
I.���The electoral district of Xew
Westminster, comprising the provincial electoral districts of New Westminster city and Delta and al! that
porti.m of the provincial district of
Richmond lying south of Burrard Inlet, excepting the municipalities of
Vancouver city, South Vancouver
and  Point Grey.

To Celebrate the Birth of Vancouver
South, Leading Liberals Will
Hold Mass Meeting
Kalenberg Hall Chosen for Event, Which will Take Place Friday
Evening, June 19   Leader Brewster Will Speak as well
As Honest John Oliver and Mr. M. A. Macdonald
To  celebrate the birth of the new
constituency,  Vancouver  South, Lib-
| erals   from  far  and  wide  will gather
I at   Kalenberg   Hall,   Friday  evening,
I June 19, when the Liberal leader, Mr.
|H.  C.  Brewster,  Honest  John Oliver
and  Mr.  Malcolm Archibald Macdonald will be the chief speakers.
South Hill Liberal Association,
Main Street Libera! Associations and
the various other organizations
throughout the municipality will join
j together to make the event a great
success.
While it is likely that the order
will bc slightly better, the expectations of the committee in charge believe that there will be a bigger
crowd on hand than ever attended
the most exciting Gold meeting of
the past few elections.
Reeve Kerr has been asked to take
the chair and .there will he a programme e,f music.
Mr. Brewster will deal generally
with the political situation in British
Columbia,   basing   his   remarks  on   a
thorough investigation of affairs in
all  quarters  of the province.
Mr. Oliver will confine himself to
the Land Question, with which he is
very familiar, and he will show how
ten years of McBride administration
has brought about a deplorable condition of affairs in this province, a
condition which has not its parallel
anywhere else on the North American   continent.
Mr. Macdonald will likely touch
upon  Federal  affairs.
The meeting promises to be one
which will warrant the attention of
all ratepayers in South Vancouver
and  Point  Grey.
It will bc of particular interest in
view of the recent formation of
South Vancouver and Point Grey
into a Federal electoral district. Mr.
Frank Henderson, prominent in the
Main Street Liberal Club, has arrangements ie.r the meeting well in
hand, and it is expected that the
event will close a very active season
of Liberal organization on the Fraser
sleipc.

commented upon, and the public-
spirited citizens who made the
event possible have the satisfaction of knowing that they have
'. jeeeeded in giving South Vancouver the best advertisement she
has ever had. Among the gentlemen who are responsible for the
part South Vancouver played in
the pageant are: President
Hodgson, of the Board of Trade;
Reeve Kerr, Councillors Rutledge,
George Stevens, Rowlings, Twiddy, Thomas, Winram and Millar;
Messrs. W. J. Prowse, J. C.

SIX   REASONS
WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF
CREOSOTED WOOD
BLOCK PAVEMENTS
ITS DURABILITY���Does not crumbfe or pulverize under the densest traffic; second only to granite
blocks
!*aV tsi'S   "^ i ��    "ef  a*C?       T f af af \ tf tPH' t Ft  i aO1 1
ITS EASE OF REPAIR- No difficulty being experienced in removing and replacing the blocks; no
expensive plane or skilled workmen required.
ITS SANITARY QUALITIES���Creosote being a
highly antiseptic and waterproofing material instantly 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 dirt road is obtained.
ITS DUSTLESSNESS���Does not pulverize; the
heaviest traffic only pounding down the wood fibres
to offer the greater resistance.
ITS CLEANLINESS���Having a smooth surface and
being waterproof 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 Dreadnought Business
Admiral Percy Scott has caused
quit a flutter with his outspoken de-
nunciation eif the building eef warships. The armament manufacturers
arc extremely angry and freem now mi
we will have a powerful campaign of
"education" launched forth al! ovet
the world by these worthies.
It seems to us lhat Admiral Scott's
utterance will do more to bring lo
an end this senseless waste of money
than anything else could do. The
"loyal" Britisher, German or any other nationality have previously gauged their country's might by the a-
niiiunt of dreadnoughts they pei--,---
sed. Once this senseless rivalry is
shattered there will be less bitterness
and more cordiality shown in their
dealings. Co-operation among the
workers of the world once begun will
go on and ne'er stop until the word
war will mean not building warships
but to eliminate tbe rotten conditions
under  which  they and  their  children
live.

Calgary Should Worry
A lettergram from Calgary intimates that Oil stocks dropped 2 points
on receipt of Admiral Scott's speech
on dreadnoughts, but recovered a-
gain when a famous automobile manufacturer stated that the effect woubl
be that of putting the auto into closer
reach   of  tl."   working   man.     Who's

It would seem as if South Vancouver was to get rid of its financial
difficulties shortly. If the bonds are
sold it will enable the council to go

The Trades and  Labor  Council of

Wc hae nae permanent improvements is the cry that's heard at election time, but they folk that shout
the loodest aboot permanent work
wuel be the tirst yins tae shout if they
had lae go stravcegin' through the
bush tae get tae their domicile.
Noei, dinna think I'm oot tae whitewash the present cooncil or the past

be looked at in thc proper Hcht an'

under sometimes tryin' circumstances.
I had a bit turn doon by the North

mare than astonished, considerin' hoo
things are in the money wey the noo,
tae see the advance they're makin' in
the development o' that locality.
Xew hooses are built an' buildin'
where jist a couple o' year ago yae
couldna see a yaird or twa back frae
the dense bush. Streets an' lanes hae
been opened up an' though they might
not be laid wi' creosoted blocks yet
they serve the purpose o' providin'
temporary access tac them. That a'
means money. If yae tak intae account the size o' the municipality an'
the amounl o' streets cleared, wi' water mains laid in, yaell find that if
there's been money wasted, yet there's
been a wh.elc lot O* it spent very judiciously.

In asking for reductieeiis in the

queriously made that it wemld be well
to know- what minimum labor woulil
be content with. The Toronto Industrial Banner in discussing this
question says: "The man.who has
tei work one minute more than eight
hour per day is nol getting a square

Xoo is tbe time I consider when we
can logically' see oor wev tae start
on permanent work an' I wis mare
than pleased tae see the last cooncil
mak a beginnin' wi' the pavin' o' Main

It's a curious thing, though, that tbe
folk that made the biggest howl o'
want o permanent improvements were
tbe biggest knockers when it wis proposed  tae  mak  a  start.

The Dreadnought Business
Admiral Percy Scott has caused
quit a flutter with his outspoken denunciation of the building e.f warships. The armament manufacturers
are extremely angry and from now on
we will have a powerful campaign of
"education" launched forth all over
tin' world by these worthies.

They say the debt o' the municipality is roon aboot five million dollars an' that sixty per cent, o' its bor-
rowin' power has already been absorbed. Weel, efter alloin' for a' the
waste they say has gone on, some o'
which is quite evident tae mysel, I

wey in which the administraslnm
bad tae meet the big demands o' a
populashun that wis comin' in twa e.r
three year back at thc rate o' a thoo-
sand a month.

than anything else could d". The1
"loyal" Britisher, German or any other nationality have previously gauged their country's might by the a-
mount of dreadnoughts they possessed. Once this senseless rivalry is
shattered there will be less bitterness
and more cordiality shown in their
dealings. Co-operation among tbe
workers of the world once begun will
go on and ne'er stop until the word
war will mean not building warships
but to eliminate thc rotter, conditions
under which they and their children
live.

Calgary Should Worry
A lettergram from Calgary intimates that Oil stocks dropped 2 points
on receipt of Admiral Scott's speech
on dreadnoughts, but recovered a-
gain when a famous automobile manufacturer stated that the effect would
be that of putting the auto into closer
reach   of   the   working   man.     Who's

South Vancouver Bonds
It would seem as if South Vancouver was to get rid of its financial
difficulties shortly. If the bonds are
���old it will enable the council to go
ahead with the necessary improvements which are being held back only by the shortage of funds.
Unions Protect Womanhood
The Trades and Labor Council of I
Oklohoma City has made a sharp answer to the claim that organized labor
is fighting the employment of girls
in shoe shining establishments in that
city because the girls are not organized. In the statement the unionists say there is no union of bootblacks there nor has any effort been
maele to form one. "The resolution
was prompted and unanimouslv passed by this body on the basic principl
that   such   employment   is   unfit
We hae nae permanent improvements is the cry that's heard at elec-
ti->n time, but they folk that shout
the loodest aboot permanent work
wud be the first yins t.ic shout if they
had tae go stravecgin' through the
bush tae get tae their domicile.
Noo, dinna think I'm oot tae whitewash the present cooncil or the past
yins, but I think this question should
bc looked at in the proper licht an'
credit gien for the wey they bae dune
under sometimes tryin' circumstances.
I bad a bit turn doon by the North
Airm the end O* last week an' I wis
mare than astonished, considerin' hoo
ibings are in the money wey thc noo,
tae see the advance they're makin' in
tbe development o' that locality.
Xew booses are built an' buildin'
where jist a couple o' year ago yae
couldna see a yaird or twa back frae
the dense bush. Streets an' lanes hae
been opened up an' though they might
not be laid wi' creosoted blocks yet
they serve the purpose o' providin'
temporary access tae them That a'
means money. If yae tak intae ac-
coont the size o' thc municipality an'
tbe amount o' streets cleared, wi' water mains laid in, yaell find that if
there's been money wasted, yet there's
been a whole lot o' it spent very Judiciously.
As I wis savin'. Sooth Vancoover
i has jist been passin' through a stage
o' its career that wis necessary in the
; development o' a big municipality���
that's only second tae Vancoover in
pint  o'  populashon.
Then again if we look for pcrman-
!ent work we can sharely pint tae oor
excellent schules that arc the pride o'
I the province. Weel built, on excellent sites, an' wi' plenty spare room

buildlns on, wi' rail an' water facilities  right  there.
N'oo I bae nae interest in ony real
estate in that quarter (I wish I hadl
but a' the same a fellie disna need tae
be much o' an optimist tae realize
the opportunity Sooth Vancoover has.
Weel we're haen a Pageant this
week, an' Sooth Vancoover '11 be represented there. The troubles o' the
past year in the monetary an' elec-
shuneerin' line hae dune a power o'
guid in makin' the ratepayers show
mare loyalty, an' noo they intend tae
unite an' show that Sooth Vancoover
isna the sloth tbat some o' the Vancoover folk wud mak it oot tac bc.
If somebody wud only discover an
ile well up here oor cup wud be filled.
I'll gie yae a tip though, watch for
the Sooth Vancoover contingent on
the Pageant day Ohl an' anither yin
���watch for thc big, buig-leggit edytur on thc white horse. He intends
tae personate Sime>n Fraser on that

Get the Habit
In asking for reductions in the
working hours, the plaint is often
queriotisly made that it would be well
to know what minimum labor would
be content with. Tbe Toronto Industrial Banner in discussing this
question says; "The man . who has
to work one minute more than eight
hour per day is not getting a square
deal.     Indeed   the   eigbl   lieeiir   union
best that can be got���wha among us
'11 sav we hinna spent money wisely

���these were the first essentials an'
attention durin' the last three years
Ins been paid tae them afore onything else.
Noo is the time T consider when we
can logically see oor wev tae start
on permanent work an' T wis mare
than pleased tae see the last cooncil
mak a beginnin' wi' tbe pavin' o' Main
Street.
It's a curious thing, though, that the
folk tbat made the biggest howl o'
want o permanent improvements were
the biggest knoekers when it wis proposed  tac  mak  a   start.

SIX   REASONS
WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF
CREOSOTED WOOD
BLOCK PAVEMENTS
ITS DURABILITY���Does not crumble or pulverize under tlie densest traffic; second only to granite
biocks
ITS EASE OF REPAIR���No difficulty being experienced in removing and replacing the blocks; no
expensive plane or skilled workmen required.
ITS SANITARY QUALITIES���Creosote being a
highly antiseptic and waterproofing material instantly 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 dirt road is obtained.
ITS DUSTLESSNESS���Does not pulverize; the
heaviest traffic only pounding down the wood fibres
to offer the greater resistance.
ITS CLEANLINESS���Having a smooth surface and
being waterproof 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.

Talent Money
A   ladies   experience:
I know for certain that I lost a lot
of sleep thinking how lo make my
"talent" bear interest. However after great thought and one or two
wakeful nights. I decided to make
children's clothes, which I found no
difficulty in selling. I made a baby's
detachable hat, which was to come to
pieces for washing. The baby soon
proved it was detachable for ill about
one heeiir he had it all to pieces. However I had belter success with other
garments ami in all I made my talent
bear four hundred fold.
The Talent
The church in which my lot I've cast
Is  sonic  financially embarrassed,
And if we would our coffers fill
We'll   have  to  work  some  miracle.
The ladies'  guild  have got  a  plan.
From a parable of the Smi of Man.
In  a Cbtptef Of St.  Matthew's book.
We each of us a talent   took
(Like the' good servant of whom we're
told)
I To multiply a hundred fold.
For  weeks   I   thought of  every  thing;
Thai   would   to  me  a  I>r��� .fit   bring.
I asked a friend what I  would do
iTo make' one dollar into two.
! \ coeeked chicken 1  sought to can.
And tried s.enie samples on my man
With nee results tei cause alarm.
Well, says 1. where is the harm.
rll  make  something that's fit to eat.
And la I made some potted meat.
Pieces  thai   cost  about a dime
I   sold  for   fifteen  cents  a  time.
So in this way I did Contrive
To  make  one  dollar  thirty-five.

THE BOARD OP TRADE HAS SPOKES!
SINCE the Vancouver Board of Trade has discovered that it is not safe to deal in Calgary Oil
shares, there's not the slightest doubt in the world but
that the Dingman well will promptly go on the blink
and the bottom will fall out of the Western Canadian
oil business.
Dear old Vancouver Bowd of Trade. How could
we get along without you? Of course the boys with
long pants will still be able to buy an odd share of oil
stock.
Some of the fathers of our city who make up the
Vancouver Board of Trade were particularly prominent here a few years back when tlie biggest wildcats
in the country were pulled off���but not prominent as
guardians of the interests of the investors.
Any fake that is precipitated inside of British Columbia brings forth no word of warning from the Vancouver Board of Trade, it seems. Let the Calgary
people start some excitement and watcli how conservative, and careful, and hypocritical will become the
utterances of some of thes semi-public organizations.
Did the Board of Trade of Vancouver open its
mouth when the working-men of this city and the territory surrounding were bled by the Canadian Home
Investment Company? How many of these high-
browed Hoard of Trade members were associated with
the Canadian 1 lome Investment Company ?

THE GREAT PAGEAST
'HIS is the week of the Pageant. Vancouver is
enjoying the biggest fete in hcr history. Too
much credit cannot be given the self-sacrificing men
and women who have spent weeks in arranging the
various departments of the celebration.
South Vancouver figures more prominently in thc
Pageant than any of the municipalities surrounding
the parent city.    This is an encouraging sign.
We have had hard times on the coast���at least hard
times as compared with conditions here during the
first twelve years of the century. Iu the Talmud it is
stated that sicknesses are really blessings, being sent
from above to warn and protect men and women. If
this is true as regards individuals, it is also true as
applied to communities. The business sickness from
which Greater Vancouver is recovering has not been
without salutary results. It has had the effect of developing a community spirit in Greater Vancouver
which cannot be better typified than in the proceedings of tiie great Pageant.
Mr. R, \V. Holland, vice chairman of the Pageant
committee, expressed the feelings of all public sonled
citizens when he wrote:
"If Vancouver is to take her rightful place among
the cities of the Pacific Coast as a great tourist centre
and as one of the Great Convention Cities of the Amer-
THE B. C. LAND QUESTION
IT is a commonplace for men in British Columbia
today to state that they are "land poor." If the land
of British Columbia could speak, there is little doubt
but that its first complaint would be, "I am poor."
All intelligent men will agree that the great obstacle which stands between British Columbia and
permanent prosperity is a matter of many millions of
acres of farm lands which are at present held by speculative interests.
.Mr. John Oliver states on the platform that thirty
miles from Fort George, in no man's land, areas which
might be suitable for fanning purposes are held at the
rate of forty dollars an acre. One would have to travel
several days' journey from Vancouver to find a piece
of property purchasable under one thousand to two
hundred dollars an acre.
It would seem that the policy of thc Provincial government has been to retard the development of farm
lands rather than assist the people towrds a point
where the people of British Columbia might grow
enough foodstuffs to feed the people of British Columbia.
If the government of British Columbia were interested in the formation of a land policy, the members
of that body of statesmen might look up Canadian history and turn the pages back to 1829.
Eighty-five years ago, thc government of Upper
Canada had a land policy and it was a more useful
and vigorous one than ever was heard promulgated
by the present government of British Columbia. It
must have worked successfully for, than the Province
of Ontario today, there is no more bountiful combination of communities in the British Empire.
In the Canadian "News." of London, England, a
curious old document has been reprinted in fac simile,
which was issued in 1829 from the office of His Majesty's resident agent for the superintendence of settlers
and emigrants in the "Canadas." at Quebec in 1829.
There, in the opening paragraph, is stated emphatically
that lands "will be granted on very easy terms to industrious families who are possessed of means of
bringing them under cultivation."
"His Excellency, the Governor-General," runs the
proclamation, "has been pleased to order to be reserved the township of Opps, in the District of Newcastle, Upper Canada, for the reception of industrious
emigrants who may arrive from the United Kingdom,
during the present season, and who may he disposed
to settle in the Province; the price fixed for these

should be in the hands of every citizen who has any
pride in thc community. It remained for a South
Vancouver man. Mr. J. Francis Bursill, to superintend
the compilation of the book and to prepare many of
the most interesting features, both prose and poetry,

by the Linguistic Press with an accuracy, balance and
artistic finish which reflects creditably upon that progressive firm.

which would gain for our people the privilege of free

an absolute necessity.
"The Pageant idea is a splendid one, mainly because of its antiquity and because of the fact that it is
a British institution, ft fits in with tlie true Englishman's dislike of doing anything that is undignified or
likely to make him feel he is making himself ridiculous.
We Canadians are peculiarly English in this characteristic ; therefore, the Pageant suit us.
"We often envy our cousins to the south who can
lose all consciousness of self antl lake their pleasures
with the abandon and happiness of children. Some
day wc also acquire this gift, but until we do, the
Pageant will suit us much better than "The Mar-De-
Gras," "The Potlatch" or "The Rose Carnival." With
a spectacular and distinctive Summer Festival at the
beginning of the Summer season and a great Fair and
Exposition at the end, carried on from year to year
as special attractions to thousands of visitors, we will
build up a permanent and lasting advertisement of
our city that will repay our citizens a thousand fold
for all the effort and money they may invest in them.
"This 'Pageant of Vancouver' is our first effort. Be
charitable in your judgment; we will gain experience
and enthusiasm as we proceed. It has been a very
great pleasure to me to give any assistance that I could
towards the inception and carrying out of this our First
Summer Festival."
Furthermore, the proclamation states that tickets
would be supplied from Quebec to the land bein
thrown open and concludes. "These lands are distant
from Quebec about thirty-six to forty miles on the
south side of the St. Lawrence, with a good road
nearly all the way. New roads are being opened into
the land which will afford employment to settlers.
The climate is exceedingly healthy. Many Scotch,
English and Irish arc already located in this part of
the country."
Eighty-five years ago, the government of Upper
Canada was wise, as we say, to the land speculator.
They wanted only bona fide settlers in those times.
In the reign of George IV, nearly half a century
before Sir Richard McBride was born, it was possible
for the Canadian Provinces to outline a land settlement policy which was identical in many ways to the
splendid colonization system at present being conducted by the Canadian Pacific Railway.
British Columbia doesn't need a land policy. We
can afford to send $30,000,000 out of the country every
year for food stuffs.

A WINNIPEG REP P.REN CE
BRITISH COLUMBIA, the Pacific province of
Canada, is relatively to her area, as well endowed
as any province in the Dominion. Blessed with a fertile soil, which in many parts of the south is peculiarly
suited for the raising of valuable crops as fruit, her
mineral wealth is also alone sufficient to ensure her a
great economic future. To crown all, British Columbia possesses the finest stand of virgin timber now existing, within the same area, on the North American
continent. The potential value of this asset, as soon as
the Panama Canal is opened, it wouhl be difficult to
estimate. It i.s a significant fact that fully one-half���
some authorities think more than one-half���of British
Columbia's commercial timber is held by American
speculators, who must have locked up a very large
amount of capital in the standing forests of the province. Like other parts of Western Canada, British
Columbia has suffered during the past eighteen
months from the financial stringency, which has to
some extent checked building and other work that
might have been undertaken with advantage. The
position in this respect, however, has sensibly improved during the past three months, and already
applications for building permits in Vancouver and
other important centres in this province are showing
a remarkable increase,���Winnipeg Post.

miles of sunny, sandy beaches, It
was Slimmer, in those days, all the

One day, em the white, clean sands

The woman on the sea shore was his
wife and they called her the South
Wind. The child was their daughter,
whom the Sun loved dearly, and for
whom he always took home from his
regular marches out over the Pacific
gifts fr nn strange and far away lands.
Sometimes the South Wind made
great journeys with  her mighty hus

day the Sun would go alone and the

S'
his people loved him anil lo strung
and powerful was he that the North
Wind) his great enemy, feared him
and kept away fremi the land of the
Sun. The Xnrtli wind ruled by force
over his country; the Sim by kindness. The N'orth Wind was loved by
none and he was jealous of the Sun
and his gentle, kind -.ife and loving
daughter.
From a great hill lhe N'orth Wind
uftimes spied upon the family of the
Sun. Hi's envy finally knew no
bounds, He ceuild not fight against
the Sun, as man to man, but in bis
evil mind a plot was formed and he
swore that he wemld humble thc Sun.
He would take tei his great, cold castle a wife���and that wife would be the
Sun's own daughter!
Pof many days the North Wind
watched. Finally he made up his
mind that when the Sun would start
out alone on his long journey over
the Pacific, he would wait until his
neighbor was well out of sight, then he
would thunder down upon the happy
home and carry out his evil plot.
* * ���
Evening was falling upon the Pacific and the South Wind took her
daughter by the hand and together
they turned from their play ground
by the sea. Suddenly a terrific sound
smote upon their ears. The earth
seemed to quake tinder foot and behind them thc sea was lashed into
a fury. Thc Semth Wind caught up
her daughter. Fear took hold of
them. In a moment the cruel, ugly
North  Wind  was  upon  them.
Madly the North Wind tried to
strike down the mother. The daughter cried out as the South Wind tried
in vain to fight off the wicked one.
But this battle was short. Leaving
the mother wounded on the sands,
the North Wind grabbed into his
arms the helpless girl and made off
with her towards the wild, wicked
north.
* * *
Bound homeward from a sea-faring
trip who should meet the Sun that
afternoon, just as he had passed
beyond the sight oi his dear ones,
but the West Wind���thc happy, smiling, strong West Wind who would
rather fight than eat and who would
rather fight for fair women than for
any other cause. The Sun had always been a friend of the West Wind
and plans were made on that ocean
meeting that the West Wind should
make a visit lo the home of the Sun.
The cries of the daughter had
reached the sharp cars of the good
West Wind far out on the Pacific. He
felt there was danger and full speed,
he rushed to the coast. He spictl the
South Wind fallen as in a faint; he
saw the North Wind with his crying
captive. Like a shot from a cannon
hc sped after the North Wind, overtook him. and bade him combat.
The murderous North Wind struck
at the youth and tried to escape with
his victim. The West Wind had
courage. He blocked the way of the
Northern robber and jumped upon
him.
There took place then a great battle, a battle of giants.    Up and down
Ihe shore il raged and so fierce was it
that the earth trembled and shoeik
and breike into pieces along thc cuast.
(In thc land and in the sea the
bailie continued. The smooth, even
coast line was broken by the heels of
the combatant! and from the huge
deeds eif earth which were dallied
about the islands of thc present Uriiish
Columbia coast were formed and from
thc wrestling and rolling over and
over of these giants in their awful
light, thc earth was dug up and fur-
re, wed and the mountain ranges of
today arc thc result and the white
peaks tire links of the coat e.f mail
lost by the N'orth Wind in that light.
On the morning of the first day the
Sun came home and when he saw the
bleeding form of Ihe South Wind as
she sat iv the raging sea, and found
the land broken and scattered, he
was much angered; when hc found
that his daughter had been stolen
away, his heart was sad. And he took
thc South Wind by the hand and led
hcr away  to another land.
Ever since that time the South
Wind has pined for her lost baby
and she mourns for her every year.
And so she comes to the land which
is now British Columbia, where once
upon a time she was so happy, and
shc weeps for her little, lost lassie.
And her tears form the winter rains
of this hind which was once the
home of the  Sun.
��� �� *
After many days the battle of the
North Wind and the West Wind was
decided. It was a cruel light; but a
fight where the good defeated evil.
Battered and bleeding, the North
Wind was finally overcome and he
slunk off to his barren wilds, and as
he limped over the broken earth his
wounds gushed forth blood, And for
this blood men and women fight today, my children, for it has been
transformed through thc ages into
gold and so the streams and hills of
the Yukon and Alaska and Hritish
Columbia, in the land where that
great fight was fought, lure gold
seekers from all parts of the earth.
He   e(.    *
Blinded and torn, thc West Wind
found the maiden whose mother was
the South Wind and whose father
was the Sun, and he raised hcr up
gently and nursed her. And the
West Wind builded her a great castle
and gave hcr food and clothing and
servants.
Travellers may sec the place on
their way through the Canadian Rockies and they call it Castle Mountain.
There the West Wind 'aced her and
there, thc Indians say, she has her
home today.
Out from her rugged castle walls
thc blind maiden walks in the evening time. Where hcr foot falls flowers spring up, and where shc waves
her slender hand gardens and orchards flourish, and she causes thc
birds to sing wherever she goes and
the grasses to grow rich and green
for the cattle. And when she steps
out on the prairies in thc cold winter,
the snows disappear and the wheat
grows strong and rugged and heavy
headed.
She is the western princess of
peace, good harvests and happiness.
Her name is Chinook.

���Steadily under the watchful care
of the pastor and the faithful work
of thc eifficers and friends the church
has grown, and today is in a prosperous condition. Shortly afterward
an Epworth League was organized
with Mr, Frank Harford as first president. Thc league is still alive and is
in for active service, Miss M. Manuel
is the president.
In 1911 a contract for building a
parsonage was let to Mr. George L.
Grcenlay, and was finished in August
of the same year. Thc building is a
7-room structure not over large, but
fairly so, and very comfortable and
cost nearly $2300. The property is
in good shape, 3 lots, church and parse,nagc, and a debt upon it of $2700.
The membership at present is 100,
the enrolment of thc Sunday school
over 250, Mr. J. T. Reid is the superintendent.
There is a very live Junior Epworth
League, with an average attendance
of 48, under the presidency of Mr.
Leonard Ward, and Miss Ida Howard, secretary, and Mrs. Jacques, superintendent.
The choir is under the charge of
Mr. I). Gavet, and is loyally and faithfully helping to make the church services interesting and profitable. The
late leader of the choir, Mr. T. Coltart, did splendidly and his work was
much  appreciated.
The Ladies' Aid is well officered,
having Mr. I). Gavet president, Mrs.
M. F. Finlay, secretary, and Mrs. J.
D. Millar, treasurer. Meetings are
hehl regularly on thc first Wednesday
in the month.
The officers of the church are all
true men who work loyally with the
minister. Mr. W. A. Ward is the
financial secretary; Mr. Caleb Manuel,
recording steward; Mr. H. J. Philp
and Mr. I. C. Freen, efficient local
preachers.
There arc two adult bible classes,
a senior and a junior, under the presidency of Mr. John Cuthbert, and Mr.
Harry Penn.
The finances for the past year were
very satisfactory considering the many members of the church out of employment. The total amount raised
was approximately $2000.00.

Road Methodist Church, was born in
England in 1860. At the age of 6 the
father died and left three boys to the
care of a widowed mother, who in the
fear of God sought to bring up her
children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
In those days the school master was
not abroad, educational advantages
were few, but the few that were available were made the best of. In the
year 1883 he became a local preacher
in the Wath-on-Dcarne circuit. He
lived in the village of Wombwell and
had charge of the Netherwood Hall
flour mill, run by Messrs. Shaife
Bros., kindly men, whose memory is
precious. Early in 1886 he received
the appointment as hired local preachin the Pontypridd circuit, South
Wales. The Rev. John Havelock
Thompson, had charge of the little
Rhonda Valley, and in his home he
resided. For eighteen months he was
under the care of this excellent minister, who directed his studies and
gave valuable assistance. In August
1887 he set sail for Newfoundland
and was accepted as a candidate for
tlie ministry in thc Newfoundland
conference. Was ordained in 1891
and married Miss Halfyard, who has
been, and is. a most valuable helpmeet. There is living one daughter,
Annctta. For 13 years he labored in
Newfoundland, making many friends.
In 1900 he was transferred to British
Columbia and was Stationed in Trail,
another year spent in Sandon, then
four years in the Nicola Valley, four
yens in Salmon Arm and four years
in Ferris Road.
Some   measure   of   success  has   attended  his labors as is evidenced by
ciation. He is of retiring disposition,
docs not seek publicity, is content to
do thc work of a pastor, and finds
great joy in the noble work to which
he has devoted time and strength.

The
Ferris Road Methodist Church
In South Hill services wcre first
held in thc home of Mrs. M. A. Green
on 47th Ave. East by the Rev. Mr.
Whittaker, who was at that time stationed at Mountain View. In 1909
the late Rev. J. F. Betts and the sites
committee of the Vancouver Extension Society secured three lots at the
corner of ��� Ferris Road (51st Ave.)
and George Street. In 1910 plans
were made for a church and the contract to build the same was awarded
to Mr. J. T. Reid. The cost of the
building alone was nearly 2000 dollars
not including the furnishings; the
building is 28x50 with a large basement which is at present used as a
Sunday school room.
The church was dedicated on thc
first Sunday in May 1910 by the President of the Conference, Rev. James
Colvert, B.D. At that time this neighborhood was mostly bush with a few
houses, but men had faith in the district, which since then has grown very
rapidly.
The first Sunday in June 1910 thc
Rev. John Pye came from Salmon
Arm and took charge of the church.
Immediately a Sunday School was
organized, with Mr. W. H. Ebume,
superintendent, and Mr. Chester
Green, secretary, and a quarterly
Official Board was organized with
Mr. Chester Green as recording steward, W. H. Eburne. treasurer and Mrs

writing to the Romans, gave cxpres-
siim tej a desire "that Israel might bc
saved." This is the seal of any activity that is for thc good of the race.
A man sees conditions that arc intolerable, unjust, etc., immediately the
thought or desires born to attend to
those things that need attention. This
is the starting point and its importance is apparent upon reflection. Ministers of the gospel, christian people,
and Christian parents do well to get
upon their heart the great need of thc
spiritual good of the people. A desire that they might show diligence
in that which is for their higher good.
Men generally do not need exhorting
to show diligence in advancing their
temporal interests, but thc higher concerns .if mind and spirit are too often
neglected and the constant need of
exhortation to attend to these things
is very  real.
The true vocation of a minister of
the gospel is to save souls and feed
the flock of God, No work is of such
magnitude and Importance as this,
and happy is the man whu is not
turned aside from this object hy any
other  consideration.
Having said that, it does not follow
that that is the only object of thc
minister's calling. Surely the physical needs, and thc mental needs of
the people call for attention, but the
supreme purpose of the minister's
work is to persuade men to he reconciled to God. Here I wish tn say
that if I know anything nf my own
heart it is that steadily 1 have during
thc past four years ��� f my pas'
here kept this object in view. I have
Bought   you   and   not   yours.     What
success has attended my efforts only
eternity will reveal. My prayers and
study in preparing feir the Sabbath
services, and in visitation have all
tended in this defection. Many expressions of appreciation have been
heard, for which I am grateful. What
is success? That's the question. I
know what is generally regarded as
success, but what I regard as success
is the real and permanent spiritual
goeed that comes to the lives of men,
the power of the Holv Spirit ennobling them to live godly lives, making
them better citizens, directing the
thoughts and lives of the little children ever toward those higher attainments which are within the reach
of all.
The desire of the writer was that
these Hebrew people might show the
same diligence. The same as that
manifested in the earlier period of
their christian life. A subtle and very
dangerous temptation besets every
christian man, in fact every man, the
getting used to a thing. Men get used
to danger and risks and loose the
sense of danger and risks. It is so in
the christian life. It is always perilous to let out too much slack.   The
I tension needs to be kept tight. It is
possible to be too narrow, too particular,  but  generally  the  greater  evil
'is in the other direction. Show diligence. Let it be in evidence that religion is a matter of business, and go
about that business as though it
meant something���as a matter of life
or death. It was said of the early
preacher that "these men turned the
world upside down." Ministers and
members do well to keep at il and
always at it.    May you so continue.
A change of pastors should not bc
an occasion for any one identified
with this church te, be less diligent
in the work for which thc church
stands. A minister of the gospel'cBn-
not accomplish much single hanged,
bul when he knows that he basilic
sympathetic co-operation of his, jjjjio-
ple it is much easier for him. Paltiprs
come and go but the churc hemiins.
God has called each one and,.wid
"Pein, go work today in My vineyarSd."
Shall we not heed the call and/etihe
command? So long as we are iu,>'the
flesh we must be about our Master's
business. "What I say unto ope I
say unto all, Watch." These ar^ the
words of our Lord and Master. ;,<'j
At a time like this there are many
things one would like to say but-we
must forbear. These links of love and
fellowship that bind us together will
not be broken. Our bodies will separate but we are one in heart. Our
prayers will ever ascend to God for
his blessing to be upon you and yours,
and upon the new pastor. Here I
would like to express my gratitude
to the e.ffirials of the church for their
loyal and ready support in the different projects which we have had in
view. Among us here there has been
perfect harmony and while our viewpoint may have been different, our
nne aim has ever been "the good of
the cause." To the members and adherents our wish and prayer is expressed in the words of the text. And
now we go our way, our task here is
done: we have sown the seed. May
God give the increase. SATURDAY, JUNE 13, 1914

She stopped ill lier work to ceiii^li

tie stopped een the bottom step.
"Aren't yen well" he asked abruptly, lor lie missed her cheerful
laconically) and the lanky journalist
singing.
"It's only the cough," she said
neeticcd feir the first time that she had
really beautiful eyes. He looked at
the thin blue dress shc wore.
"Why don't you wear warmer
clothes?" he asked.
She Hushed and laughed a little.
"Servants always have tee wear
print frocks," shc said.
There was something mocking in
her voice, and the lanky journalist
went on Ins way into the lueiise with
a  feeling oi annoyance.
Tlle morning following this comment about her cough he looked at
hcr interestedly.
She was certainly a very good class
girl for a servant; he noticed that she
had small, well-kept hand and neat
feet���hands that did not look as if
they were used to hard or rough
work���and yet he knew that she
cleaned his boots as well as the steps,
and that his hoots were often coated
with mud.
Things were quiet at the office that
evening, and he came home lo thc
dinner which he called "supper" because he ate it alone and generally in
his  shirt-sleeves.
He kicked off his wet boots while
the- girl was arranging the table and
left them at right angles on the rug;
the girl stooped and picked them up.
The   lanky  journalist   watched   her.
"What  is yeiur name?" he asked.
The girl hesitated, she looked somehow surprised.
"The call me Jane here," she said
at  length.
The girl looked at him and then
down at thc foot-gear which she held
still.
"It's time you had some new boots,"
she  sod celeelly.
The lanky journalist stared; then
he le'.-t his temper and told her lo
mind  her own business.
Hut he benight a pair of new heeots
���a nice pair, with glace tops and patent leather toe-caps, and he paid a
guinea  for them.
The lirst time lie wore them he
watched Jane from behind his newspaper when she brought his supper,
fe.r the beiots wcre standing side by
sieie in all their new smartness, like
children in their party frocks, waiting
to be admired; hut she whisked them
up and carried them away without
comment
The lanky journalist felt absurdly
disappointed; it seemed somehow like
a guinea wasted.
At the end of the week, when he
paid his bill, lie fancied that the landlady eyed him rather anxiously; shc
walked' t'i the door, hesitated, and then
came  back.
"I hope, Mr. Gordon," she said hesitatingly, "that there arc no com-
, plaints. .    !
"Complaints!" the lanky journalist
was genuinely surprised; he had lived
at No. 1   for twei years, and Could n'.'t
j remember that he had ever onci found
fault with the menage.
Mrs   Crihb looked apologetic.
������Mr. Smlthson has been complaining,"  she  explained  unctously.    "In
fact,   lie's   given   in   It i ���   notice;   sei   I
llieiuglil    perhaps���"   she     broke     ott
plaintively.
Mr. C.ribb ch sed the door anel came:
nearer.
"It's owing i e Jane," she saiel oon-t
fidentlally.
"Jane!" the lanky journalist was'
inten sted now.
"Yes.   Mr.  Gordon.    Mr.  Smithson
complained thai  she was impertinent
to him.    1  spoke lee Jane about it. and j
she -aiel that she would leave ii he 'Inl
not,   and   she's   such   a   good   girl.     Ii
may   she's   an   absolute  treasure;   so |
i I  told  Mr. Smithson  I  would accept j
his   notice.     1   can   always   get   guests
in  mv  house.  1   am  glad  to  sav. but
nowadays  servants are  not  so  plentiful." I
"Ah!" said the lanky journalist absently. !
"So I thought I'd better mention it I
to you. Mr. Gordon," Mrs  Gribh con-|
tinned   impressively.       "The   girl     is
yeiung.   and   if   she's   ever   been   impertinent   to  you���"
"Good Leird. no! Shc never speaks
to me."
Mrs.   Crihb beamed.
"That takes a great worry off my
mind." she said, mollified "I should
bc very sorry if there was to bc any
unpleasantness with you after all these
years. Mr. Cordon."
She rctireel with a great creaking of
resoled   shoes.
The lanky journalist looked at Jane
curiously the next time shc came into
bis   room.
She carried her head a trifle higher
than  usual,  he    thought,    hut    when

she walked >mt of llie room.
"I always thought the- man was a

u doubtful whether she heard him.
A few nights later the lanky journalist had a couple of tickets feer a
theater given to him He brought
them home when he came in for his
tea  and   stuck   Ihcm  up  em   the   shelf.
The  lanky  journalist  was    fed-up
with theaters, he had been to so many;
vi when Jane brought in his tea he
asked if shc would care tee have them.
He asked hesitatingly, because he
was really rather afraid of Jane; but
she took thc offer very well.
"Thank you." she said, "but I have
no one to go with, and I dee not care
to go myself."
The lanky journalist loeekcd at her.
and then���metBphosically���he looked
over the work waiting inr him to dee;
he took a deep breath and decided that
the  work  could  wati.
"If vou will allow me to go with
you." he said; "I should be only too
pleased."
She stared; for quite ten seconds
she looked at him in such absolute
silence that he began to get reel; then
she gave him a little laugh.
"You would not be pleased if I wcre
to take you at your word." she said.
He rose to his feet; he looked angry
now and more lanky than usual as he
stood there in the cheery firelit room,
glowering down at  her.
"That :s an undeserved sn.-er.' 'he
said hotly. "My offer was nuie genuine.    I am not a cad���like Smithson."
"I have never compared you with
Mr. Smithson���not even in my mind���
and I am quite sure that if 1 went
enjoys ourselves very much. It would
be tomorrow when you will probably
see mc cleaning the steps pgain that
you would wonder why een earth yeeu

"Oh, it isn't emly you!" she broke
out as he weeuld have spoken; 'Hut

"1 have no mother or sister to meet.

"If you had you would be the same
,as   every  other  man   and   hope   they
wouldn't see you." she retorted with
hightetied   color.
The lanky journalist trice! to he dignified.
"It's useless p. argue with a  woman;   they   are   a*   obstinate   as   mules.
|I might as well save myself the trouble."
"Yes." she said; "vou  might."
She walked out of thc  en. and the
lanky   journalist   swore   so'tly   as   li ���
threw the theatre tickets into the lire.
Half an hour later she   brought him
a  telegram

When she came back she volunteered thc information that Jane was out
"Her evening's when she likes," she
'grumbled. "Mrs. Cribb daren't say

"Humph!"     He  eyed   her  thoughtfully.   "Why do yem think she is stuck

Building Inspector's Report.
In his report to the council, Building Inspector  Hubbard said in refer-!
ring tn the issuing of a building permit  lee a   Hindu   for  a  milk dairy at
5193   Thirty-seventh   avenue   without j
'the consent of the council, that the
application complied with the requirements 'if the Provincial Act and
the local bylaws then in his possession,    "I had no knowledge whatever!
I at that time, April 28," stated the in-j
spector, "that any amended bylaws I
dealing with such cases were in ex-1
istence.    Moreover it was over two
I weeks  afterwards  when   1  accident-J
.ally learned  of such."    Mr,  Hubbard
I contended that  copies of any amend-;
ments   to   bylaws   should   have   been1
given  to  him  on  his  appointment  ill
March, when he would have acted in
I accordance    with    thc    amended    by-
! laws.
In regard to the building of a danc-,
ing  platform  at   Cedar  Cottage,   In-I
spector  Hubbard  stated that tlle roller coaster company was working en-!
tirely on  a  permit  issued  on July 7,!
1913,   valued   at   $10,000,     of     which
$6000 had been spent, and he pointed
out   that   according   to     the    bylaws
building   permits    expire    "if   active
work   is   not   commenced   within   a
period  of  six  months  from  the  date
of   its   issue."       Mr.   Hubbard   also
stated that the previous day he was
informed by  the  owner  that a dancing  license   had   been    granted    for
three   months'   service,   to   be   used
on  completion of the platform.    The
report of  the  building  inspector  was
laid  over  for  further  consideration.
South Vancouver council have just
received plans from Ottawa and the
right-of-way over the Eburne and
New Westminster railway line at the
foot of Main Street. Application for
this was made some months ago.

A committee has been appointed
by the council for the purpose of interviewing the Greater Vancouver
Sewerage Commission with reference

cemetery grounds on Thirty-eighth
Avenue, at a cee^t ,,t' about $200. This
is in accordance will' their agreement with the City Council some
linn- ago.

It is evident that Councillor Stevens would have South Vancouver
forge ahead. Hc suggested, afler the

Calgary, June 10.���Writing a descriptive story of the Black Diamond
well, J. M. D. Ritchie, a well-known
newspaperman, has a lot to say of
this properly which has been the subject of many remarkable rumors. Mr.
Ritchie writes as follows :
Tlle sight sent a chill through the
small group of beholders, and when
due consideration is given to the fact
that the latter were newspapermen
men���accustomed to coming into
close contact daily with the tragedies
that sadden human existence���then
it will be admitted without question
that the vision was one of dreadful
portent.
And So, for the moment, it seemed.
Deep down in the bowels of the earth
there glared a baleful light of a malignity so intense as lo conjure up within the imagination a fancy that the
evil one himself was gazing upwards
in wrath at the mortals who had
dared to peer into the domain where
the powers of darkness arc said to
hold  eternal sway.
But the situation In reality lacked
those essentials which go towards the
formation of a piece of news calculated to staagger humanity. Though
the setting was dramatic, it contained no blood-curdling mystery, and
therefore comes under the category
of tilings prosaic and easy of understanding.
For the baleful eye, apparently suffused with deadly venom of a capacity infinite, was nothing but a common piece of waste that for a few
brief moments had been engulfed in
a brilliant bluish llame, and had now
become shorn of its splendor and
was rapidly sinking into invisibility
in the saturnine depths of the Black
Diamond   well.
richest oil fields ill the known history
of the world.
I did not expect to bc held up by a
man with a gun or dogs endowed with
the lust for human Mesh, because I
was aware of the fact that the property had been thrown open to the
public by thc directorate. However,
it may not be amiss to note among
the things I first observed on entering upon the property were thc sleeping forms of four dogs that had evidently enjoyed a hearty dinner���a
discovery which I must confess created a considerable feeling of assurance. Then on stepping inside the
wooden structure at the base of the
derrick I beheld suspended by a hook
on the wall near the door a gun of
patriarchal design. Later in the day
eeiir of the visitors soberly informed
me that the gun referred to was the
one from which had been fired a bullet that had narrowly missed sending
the great Napoleon to his death on
j tlie fatal  field of Waterloo.
As to whether or not this story
|is worthy of a place on the white
|summit of the mountain of veracity,
I cannot state, and the only comment
that seems advisable is that it possesses thc flavor characteristic of the
vast majority of the stories that have
passed from mouth tei mouth respecting the  Black   Diamond well.
The bald truth regarding this well
can be summed up briefly. Up to
date no strike of oil has been made
at the well, which has now reached
a depth of 1,625 feet. However, I
was shown by Mr. George E. Buck,
managing director of the company, a
large can containing black oil which
had heen skimmed from off the top
of the contents of the baler on various occasions since the Dakota sands

into the well. There followed instantly a huge flame that was accompanied by a startling explosive sound
far down in the hole, and it was after
one of these that the assembled company risked falling off the wejoden
platform which stands 12 feet abeve
the orifice in order that they might
look down into the well, and catch a
glimpse of the flaming waste as it
descended  to the bottom.
Indeed there is so much gas in the
well that Driller Hayes expressed the
opinion that he thought considerable
risk of serious damage to the derrick
was involved hy the dropping of waste
into it. The idea was strengthened
when a few minutes later about 30
persons who had made the trip down
to the property surrounded the well,
and the waste demonstration was
again given. On this occasion the
explosion was of such a character as
the well, it is not difficult to under-
lo greatly alarm the spectators, and
two men rushed backwards so hurriedly   from   the   opening   that   they
|Stumbled and fell over a piece of pip-
[ing.
Driller Interviewed
I   had  a  very  interesting conversation with Driller Hayes.    He impressed  me  as  lieing a  man  both  modest
and sincere.    Mr. Hayes has had over
thirty  years'  experience  in    the    oil
I fields  oi  the  United   States,  and   has
been  engaged iu  connection with  thc
drilling   of  many   hundreds  of   wells.
[He  stated  that  from  present  indication-  he was satisfied  that a body of
���crude   oil   wemld   be   struck  at   Black
Diamond,  and  that   tiie  strike  would
|be made before the drill had penetrated  a   depth   of  2.000   feet.     He   had
never seen in all his experience black
eeil  e,f  tlic  character  which  hail  been
[obtained   from   the   well,   but   he   felt
lhat when the main body was reach*
I eii the oil would be lighter.
The same spirit of optimism prevailed among the other five employees
ion the property, and as thay are all
| personally interested in the success of
stand that they will put forth every
effort t.. read the "fluid which they
firmly believe lies somewhere beneath
the point of the drill.
The Black Diamond property is picturesquely situated on the banks of
Sheep Creek. The derrick stands on
an eminence, while down below in a
miniature valley sheltered from every
'wind that blows is the camp, which
is easily the most inviting in appearance on thc oil fields at the present
moment, and in this respect at any
rate Black Diamond leads all its competitors.
I cannot conclude this article on
Black Diamond without reiterating in
a sentence the tenor of all that has
gone before. The Black Diamond
company is deeing everything humanly possible to reach the oil, and their
prospects of doing so are as fair and
hopeful as looked the camp yesterday, when it lay bathed in the light
of the summer sun, bounded on one
side by thc river, with its several
little homes sheltered and shaded hy
the SUtrQIUlding hills and the green
foliage  oi  lhe trees.

A congregational meeting took
place in Westminster Church on
Wednesday evening^ when Mr. J. T.
Johnstone of Nineteenth Avenue
East and Mr. A. C. Hunter of
Twenty-second Avenue and Main
Street were elected to the board of
management of the church in the

Thc Ladies" Aid of Westminster
Church will meet on Wednesday,
June 17, at 2.30 o'clock, at the home
of Mrs. Crawford, 631 Twenty-third
Avenue East. Please notice the
changed date.
The incident occurred in the bright
sunshine and served to prove beyond
question lhe assertion that has been
made for some time by the directors
| of the company that there was a huge
volume of gas emanating from the
well.
And in writing this little story of
my trip to the Black Diamond property yesterday it is scarcely necessary for me to mention what is well
known to the citizens of Calgary, that
assertions regarding this well have
been about as numerous as the sands
of the seashore. Stories���some of
them of colossal absurdity���have been
circulated about the Black Diamond
well. Personally, within the bast
month, I have been informed by men
whom society never expects to send
to Ponoka, that the Black Diamond
company was not drilling a well; that
it never intended to drill a well; that
when the first load of lumber arrived
on tlle property there was a woman
there with a gun at thc persuasive
point of which shc forced the intruders to remove to another part of the
universe because the mineral rights
actually belonged to her; and to
crown all. that the said woman had
been paid by the Black Diamond
company to play this dramatic role
because the board of management
wanted an excuse for not drilling.
Relic of Waterloo
These and other tales of a similar
character recalled themselves to mind
as the car in which I journeyed rapidly covered the distance separating
the city of Calgary from what all confidently expect will develop  into the
were reached, 1,380 feet below the
surface. Neither the drill nor the
baler were in operation yesterday, but
1, personally, have no dubiety as to
the honesty.ol the statement made
by ,\1r. Buck, which was corroborated
by Mr. J W. Hayes, chief driller, and
several other employes. Moreover,
an inspection of the dumping ground
where the dark-hucd sands lay piled
revealed evidence of the presence of
oil.
Many members of the public will
doubtless have wondered why it is
that since striking the Dakota sands
the drill of thc Black Diamond has
not gone down at a greater rate of
speed, and probably the majority are
in blissful ignorance of the fact that
the Dakota sands form the hardest
strata through which the drill has to
pass. Indeed the tirst 200 feet of
these sands proved about as hard as
granite. Some idea of the texture of
this strata may be gathered from the
statement that frequently it has occurred that the well has been deepened by only two feet after twelve hours
of continuous pounding by the drill.
However, the sands are beginning to
display less resistance to the progress of the drill. Night and day
shifts commenced to run on Saturday, and it is believed that ftom now
on the well will he deepened bv at
least  10 feet daily.
Volume of Gas
As for the manifestations of the
presence of oil in the well, I witnessed along with several other newspaper men what happened when two
pices  of lighted  waste were  thrown
Calgary, June 10.���The fair members of the Calgary Women's Press
Club firmly believe that a great future awaits the oil fields and as proof
of their optimism, it is of interest to
note that at a meeting of the club
held it was decided to invest $50 in
oil stock. Just what companies this
money will be invested in is a matter
that may require thc holding of several extraordinary meetings of the
club, hut it may be taken for granted that the prospectuses of the various companies will undergo a most
scrupu.ous examination before the
funds of thc press club are entrusted
to their keeping.
A committee has been appointed to
handle this matter and the fact that
the convencrship of this committee is
held by Miss Ilutton, who is herself
a broker, warrants the opinion that
if there is any money to be made from
the oil fields the members of thc Calgary Women's Press Club will get
their full share.
Another organization composed of
members of the gentler sex has seen
fit to take a flutter in oil, is the
Mothers' Club of Connaught School.
This club is in the happy position of
having funds in excess, and the mothers have shown themselves to he possessed of sufficient enterprise to invest $50 in United Oils. The profits
that may accrue from this source are
to be devoted to the purchase of a
Victor-Victrola  for  the  school.
