ot unsuccessful mayor or alderman,
reeve or councillor as the case mav be.
Tis peculiar, but sei it is.
* *   *
Take Seeuth Vancouver council a- a
case in point. After seven months agitation an entirely new council was
elected last year which wa- proclaimed by the agitators to be after their
.i hearts. There.- is no need to repeal thc history nf the year. I'.ut how
many of those "business" councillors
elected last January are being returned unopposed this January? N'ol n
single solitary one! Why- If they
satisfied  the'  agitators  last  year  why;
of the -'all     Consequent!)   e\ ery offi

S.> anxious, in  fact, that when experience teaches them that the new ci um -

should du i-  so-aiid-(< i and  - i  forth."
Naturally, being afraitl ..i losing their
jobs the- officials hesitate to inti rfi ;   .
hoping, perhaps, to have- an opportuni-1   ii
ly of speaking privately to one of the!
councillors and so pul him on guard. I

The fact is. that while' the Municipal \cl may be suitable for rural communities, where the business ol the
council can be transacted by any nnc
familiar with local conditions and

communities such as now exists in
Greater Vancouver. If the Act had

many of those "business" councillors
elected last January are being returned unopposed this January? Not a

another term?

Attention is directed to Wan', Seven,
that ward which embraces a great portion "f the sunny Southern slope, a
disirict the charms and potentialities
of which are ni.��re fully apreciated
outside of South Vancouver ihau within the Municipality.
In Ward Seven tlie candidate wh" is
being brought forward by individual
property owner- in every calk of life
is Mr. W. .1. Allen, a man win. through
tlle Sturm and stress of the past two
year- has held unshaken confidence in
the future of the Municipality���a man
who is a Souih Vancouver enthusiast
througii and through.
Mr. W, .1. Allen, though a young
man. has had a broad business experience and. may ii be said, that is distinguished a- a young man entering
polities insofar that he has been sue-
cessful in every line of business he has
engaged in.
When Mr. Allen first came te, British Columbia from Toronto ten years
ago he settled in the Kootenays. For
several years he carried on a livery am!
express business in Marysville, B.C..
and was interested extensively in other
enterprises in that town. When he

I grocery business in Vancouver he left
behind him many friends who will fol-

Before moving to South Vancouver,
Mr Allen conducted a successful grocery liusiiic-s al tlie corner of Twelfth
\velllle   and   Main   Sireet.
Mr. Allen has been lor many years
a member of tin South Vancouver
Board of Trade and has put before that
body inane good ideas which have been
worked out to ih,- benefit of South
Vancouver generally.
ll wa- nmieereel about the Municipality that Mr. Allen would go in f'er
the rce-v-hip tin- year. In conversation wiili tin- CHINOOK he stateel
that though pressed liy a large number
of fri.-ml- an.'; neighbors on tin.' Southern Slope I-, stand for r.-e-ve, he had
de-eided after mature consideration ihat
In could best serve tin' municipality
a- re. ve by first having one year's cx-
. ,-,- a councillor. With that
end in view Mr. Allen decided lo stand
in Wan; Seven where he is. so far, the
only candidate pul forward whee is rc-'
garded at all seriously by tlie better
clement of tin- people'. La-t year's
representative from Ward Seven is
withdrawing ihis year and is among
those who an- supporting ihe candida-
tun    of   Mr.   Allen.
Mr. Allen was a candidate la-t >ear
in Wanl Seven. He was urged tei
ce.nn forward al the last moment and
though lie had but four days in which
to place hi- case before the people, hc
came within thirty-eight votes of being elected.

council can be transacted by any ..ne
familiar with local conditions and
needs, the Act is utterly unsuitable for

shortly before we gave Mr. Bursill a complimentary tjarV! t|K. ��fair name 0f the Dominion will he lie-
dinner in recognition of his many years nf journalistic work, an attempt���cut short hy the war���was
made both here and in England to raise a fund as a
personal present in recognition of his services and as
some compensation for the fact that he only received
$100 of the $500 promised to him for his strenuous
work on behalf of a very successful Vancouver Pageant���which could not have heen carried through as
successfully as it was without his help. The whole
of that $100 and every cant of the testimonial fund
was at once paid by Mr. Bursill for overdue interest
on the Institute.
My chief object in writing this letter is lei quote
from two of the many letters from subscribers to the
testimonial fund. One is from Mayor Baxter and
the other is from Mr. T. I'. O'Connor, the distinguished English journalist, who knew .Mr. Bursill well in
the Old Country, lhe latter wrote "1 have much
pleasure in enclosing a guinea towards testimonial for
Mr. Bursill, who. from what 1 read, must indeed be
a valued citizen of Vancouver. He has my best wishes MR. liOWSER ADMITS bv hi ii
for his continued activities. I hope he vw
good health for years to come." Mayor Baxter
wrote, "The district of Collingwood is to be congratulated and complimented upon having such a public-
spirited, competent and energetic citizen as Mr. J.
Francis Bursill������better known to the reading public
as "Felix Penne." His able articles are enjoyed by
perusers of the daily I'ress and, often serve to keep
Collingwood in the public eye. I wish to tender Mr.
Bursill my personal thanks for his much appreciated
work in connection with the Vancouver Pageant."
I could quote many Sther appreciations by well-
known persons���one from the lion. \\ . J. llowser
and another from Sir Walter Vaughan Morgan, a
recent Lord Mayor of London���who were among the
subscribers, in order to show that South Vancouver
should do all in its power to keep the Library, the
Librarian and the Institute active.

ONE OF Till'. FACTORS which helped the promoters to rob the public was tbe name of tbe Dominion
Trust Company. The Parliament of Canada ought
to limit the use of the name of this young nation by
business concerns.

NOT A FEW of the poorer and more ignorant people who placed all their savings in tl* hands of the
keepers of the gilded den undoubtedly did so wilh
the full belief that as the Company bore thc same
name as Canada tbat it was really connected in some
way with the Government. Alas! Tbe Dominion
Trust was connected with both Governments insofar
that its officers apparently had both the heads of the
Provincial and Dominion Governments blackmailed
into tolerating the most flagrant violations of the law
ever known in any civilized community.

that be owned only the one lot in the district, having

wouldn't bother about improving the streets in front
of his property, if elected, as he had been able to get
this through with last year's council, lie wound up
a thrilling speech by declaring that he was of a certain political stripe, "Ah. then," saiel a wag in the

��HERE is nothing io Important t' your health tun! efficiency as the matter with

ynu in bile, chew and smile in comfort, Decayed teeth cause, imt only continual
Inconvenience, but permanent ill-health. It is ymir duty to yourself to economize
in other ways so that you may secure teeth that look natural, feel natural and perform tlie functions which Nature allotted to those important members.
CHEREFORE you should choose your dentist with great care. It is poor
economy to buy "bargain teeth." Inferior dentistry���poor materials, little
knowledge and less care���costs hut little less than the right kind even at the beginning, and certainly is much more expensive in the long run.
X EMPLOY only the most modern methods, the greatest care and skill and the
best materials. Each individual case is carefully studied. When 1 fit you

says : "One hears ami reads appeals
fur senile highly responsible, thoroughly capable, utterly public-spirited, eminently successful man of destiny, in
wheiin all the- citizens would have confidence." This public man. the writer
points OUt, exists in lln. minds of many;
but the moment a person whom someone thinks answers to the description
is mentioned "his real anel elleged defects ami faults are revealed"; and the
erilie- begins tee pull him to pieces at

Take Smith Vancouver council as a
ease in peeint. After seven months agi-
tatiiui an entirely new council was
elected last year which was proclaimed by the agitators to be after their
<iwn hearts. There is no need tu repeat the history of the year. Hut how
many of those "business" councillors
elected last January arc being returned unopposed this January? Not a
single   solitary   one!     Why?   If   ihey
ab- mure suitable tu tin   needs    of
tbeater Vancout er,
*    *    *
Let nu- illustrate what I mean,   Say
that as the resull uf hmg continued agi-
tation an entirely new council is elect-
ted, as is possible umler tin- Municipal
| Act.   After the old council has retired
I tin- new council takes office anxious
] anil   eager  tu   get   down   tu    business.
! Perhaps during the election campaign
there has been talk eel a reorganization
uf llie staff.   Consequently every uffi-
eial is nervous anil aimuu^  lu please.
Su anxious, in  fact, that  when  experience teaches them that the new council is about lei make a disastrous mistake  they  are  afraid  tu   speak  out :
"Mr.   Reeve   anil   Gentlemen   yuu   are
ab'ml   tu  make  a  mistake  which  ymi
will  afterwards  regret.      What    you
should il" is so-and-so ami su forth."
Naturally, living afraid of losing their i
jobs tlle officials hesitate t'i interfere;
hoping, perhaps, tu have an opportunity uf speaking privately 1" ..ne uf thei
councillors anil  su put him un  guard.
lint the opportunity dues imt come and
the mischief is dune; a mistake is made
which in the end costs the municipality much money.

Wlm ean blame tiie officials? Not

foolishly took advantage uf a Haw in
the   Municipal   Aet   tu  elect   a   council
tu deal with public money, probably
minimis, with no mure experience uf
public administration than a dug has
uf a hip-pocket. Can you wonder that
there is maladministration, and incompetency? Nut intentional, perhaps, mi
tbe part uf tlle newly elected reeve and

new councillors blindly fell intn the
trap, knowing m> better.

Mr. Mathers is not unfamiliar with
municipal affairs. In support of his
stand in favor of annexation he is reminded of the part he took in Edmonton, some years ago, wdien the fight
for the annexation of Strathcona was
in progress. Also when in Edmonton,
Mr. Mathers had dealings with the
Provincial .mel Dominion Governments
in connection with the building of the
hiyh-level bridfe across the Saskatchewan River, lie was also in Edmonton when the public-owned telephone
System   was  installed.
"In thu-e days," said Mr. Mathers.
"I saw things which impressed me With
the serious problem of dealing With
contractors. I am in favor of day
labur un municipal work anil believe
in keeping public works contractors in
their place."
Mr. Mathers is likely to be the only
candidate in opposition to Mr. Richard

and wishes to make a denial that Councillor Winram is bringing him out or
that anv individual or organization has
anything whatever to do with his appearance in the present contest.

your iee th. Sound, useful, beautiful teeth sin.uld be yuurs���teeth that enable
you in I'ite, chew ami imile in comfort, Decayed teeth cause, not only continual
inconvenience, but permanent ill-health, It is ye.ur duty to yourself to economize
in other ways so that you may secure teeth that look natural, feel natural and pcr-
f < ir in the functions whieh Nature allotted to those important members.
CHEREFORE yen sin uld choose your dentist with great care. It is poor
economy in buy "bargain teeth." Inferior dentistry���poor materials, little
knowledge and less care���costs but little less than the right kind even at the beginning, and certainly is much more expensive in the long run.
X EMPLOY only the most modern methods, the greatest care and skill and the
best materials. Each Individual case is carefully studied. When I fit you
with my "Nature teeth" thev look, lit and feci like the ones Nature gave you. And
you will find my prices no higher than those of ordinary dentists.
