SATURDAY,   OCTOBER   4.    1913
Reeve Kerr is a busy man. He has, we know, an inclination
towards historical study, but not the time to delve into history for
those examples which would so vividly illustrate his arguments on
the necessity of "Publicly Owned Utilities." Let us venture to supply
from history, some one very apt illustration.
We have in South Vancouver a publicly owned water supply-
Not perfect, but such as would have been regarded as a miracle by
the people of London 300 years ago. Reeve Kerr spoke on the 300th
anniversary of the inauguration of London's privately owned water
supply���a system which in time had to be purchased for the people.
What is the history of that supply. We will deal with the original
shares, which rose in value beyond the dreams of avarice but merely
state that 50O0 shares of ��100 each issued as recently as 1866 had
risen by 1903 to a value of ��2,000,000 and that the public had to pay
��5,534,000 to buy up the New River Company, which was established by the outlay of a few paltry thousands. The New River Company
demanded nearly twelve millions and the arbitrators gave them half
what they asked!
Reeve Kerr's lecture demands more time and space than we have,
at the moment at our disposal. The subject of "Public Utilities" we shall
deal with fully next week. Meanwhile we commend to the taxpayers
the study of the history of the subject. Learn how London had to
pay "through the nose" millions and millions to buy up monopolies
granted for ferries, tramways and other public necessities when it
became convinced that certain utilities must be owned by the public.
In these matters history teaches us what to do and what to avoid.
Reeve Kerr delivered a most enlightening address before the South
Vancouver Board e'f Trade Ihis week
on the subject of public ownership
of public utilities.
Outstanding in his remarks was
the reference made to the B. C. E. R.
This concern sought a monopoly of
the local market feer electric power
and  light  and  gas.
In quoting the rates charged by
this company at the presenl moment,
Reeve Kerr' slated that it would be
suicidal for tbe municipality to place
its neck in a franchise noose at the
present time, or at any future time.
Vancouver, he stated, was at present tied down by the 11. C. E. R. in
the matter of street railway, power
light and gas franchises. Vancouver
was paying excessive rates lee this
company, and thc Reeve hoped that
South Vancuuver would benefit from
the distressing experiences of the
Reeve Kerr stated lhat possibly it
vvas necessary for the company to
charge higher rates than similar cor-
poratlonfi in Seattle and elsewhere,
owing to the high cost of operating
expenses. He failed to see, however,
where the people of South Vancouver should give up their good money
to pay for the "wasteful extravagance
clue to poor management."
South Vancouver should own it-
own public utilities and tbe Reeve
gave facts and ligures to show where
it could do so profitably.
With regard to a municipally owned gas plant, the Reeve spoke exhaustively, but the members of the
Board nf Trade did not seem to regard this enterprise as the most important   em   tbe   programme.
Considerable enthusiasm was shown
in favor of the proposal to develop
a   municipal   electric   light  plant.
The Board vigorously applauded
the project the council has in hand
al lhe present moment to buy up industrial sites een lhe North Arm eef
the Fraser.
Reeve Kerr stated that he hoped
the' ratepayers would heartily support him in tbe carrying out of the
programme in band.   First, be hoped
that the ratepayers would lose no
lime in signing up the petitions at
present being circulated���it being
necessary t.. have a petition with the
nanus of one-tenth of the property
owners upon it before thc necessary
bylaws could be introduced. With
the in tie ductioii of the bylaws. Reeve
Kerr urged every public spirited citi-

leclared Mayor Baxter. It would, be
continued, prove a great assistance
:ommercially to Vancouver and New
Westminster, both e.f which had done
all in Iheir power to aid the building
of lhe highway.
Afler   Mr.  J.  J.   Miller  hael   spoken
Hon. Thomai Taylor was called upon

After congratulating lhe cities and
municipalities  e.n  the  completion  e.i
the paiing and referring tu lhe government'!  interest  in  the undertaking
the minister  outlined ibe possibility
nf a paved circular road freem Vancouver tei New Westminster via Kings-
way, returning by the River reiad.
An elaborate programme of road
construction, continued the Minister
of Works, had been carried out by
lhe government eluring llie past two
yean The public works of ibe province last year had cost $10,000,000
and of this large amount no less a
sum than $7,000,000 had been spent
on   roads,  trails  and  bridges.
Ile als.e referred to the government's share in connection with the
building of the transcontinental highway, declaring thai lhe heaviest and
most costly pari of the undertaking
had fallen on the shoulders of the
government i.f the province owing
to the mountainous slate of the country through which the road would
As the representative of the Works
Department and on behalf of the government Mr. Taylor then declared the
Kingsway open to public traffic, at
the same time expressing tbe hope
tbat all those present would live long
���ee enjoy travelling on the splendid
and magnificent  highway.
The procession then re-formed and
proceeded over the highway to thc
Royal City.

Five hundred and sixty-three auto-
nnibiles carried civic and municipal
representatives, members of Boards
"I  Trade  and  nther organizations.
A start was made shortly afler 10
o'clock from the corner of Howe and
Georgia streets and thc procession
wenl by way of Granville street to
Broadway and thence to Westminster
road, a brief slop being made on
Main street at Seventh avenue to allow Mayor Baxter to declare Westminster road a part of Kingsway. All
the motor cars were profusely decorated with flags, the long procession
presenting a most imposing sight.
It was 11 o'clock wdien the procession arrived at the stage where the
opening ceremonies were to take
place, the corner of Kingsway and
Boundary road, where a temporary
platform had been erected.
The chairman declared that the
value of tbe newly paved highway
could not be computed in dollars and
cents. As a connecting link between
Vancouver and New Westminster its
value could not be over estimated.
Reeve Macgregor of Burnaby congratulated tbe municipalities and cities
upon the completion of the road and
pointed out its importance as a highway, bringing the cities and municipalities into closer relationship with
each other, which would result in the
future in  a Greater Vancouver.
"This road is an illustration of
what  can  bc  done  by  co-operation."
S'.uib Vancouver was definitely
and permanently placed upon ibe
map on Tuesday last when lhe great
Kingsway   was   declared   open.
Thousands of people and half a
thousand motor cars drew up at
Boundary road. Central I'ark. when
leading municipal and government of-
licials representing the Lower Mainland made appropriate addresses.
The dominant note sounded
throughout lhe speeches by Reeve
Kerr and others was appreciation of
the assistance given in the financing
of the finest twelve miles of permanent road in the broad Dominion by
tbe  Provincial  Government.
Hon. Thomas Taylor, better known
as "Good Roads Taylor" formally declared  Kingsway open to traffic.
Reeve Kerr described the new road
as a belt which bound Greater Vancouver   together.
All South Vancouver's officials were
on band and in the magnilicent procession of motor cars, conspicuous
among them were the tastefully decorated machines of Fire Chief Lester and the Municipal Council.

THE name ol Lord Mansfield is writ large in the
annals of British jurisprudence. But the
Cieai fudge had an outlook on life which was not
bounded by a legal horizon, lie uttered many words
of wisdom on civic life. Among the epigramatic sentences banded down to us we may appropriately quote
today "No community can progress rapidly, and along
right lines which has not good roads, as a means of
easy communication, and adequate facilities for banking." On banks we may have something to say at
some future time, but today���with thc memories of
Tuesday's important function in mind���we arc happy
to congratulate the citizens of South Vancouver, Burnaby and New Westminster on tbe fact tbat their
representatives have ideas which synchronize with
those of the great Lord Mansfield.' And South Vancouver has not allowed such an entcrprizc of "great
pith and moment" as the making of a great thoroughfare through the municipality, to remain as an idea,
suffered to "grow pale and lose thc name of action."
The idea has been nobly carried into effect and we
have a road, which if Sir Oliver Lodge's theories arc-
correct, may bc approved by thc spirit of Agricola,
the maker of thc tirst Roman highways, and by those
of Telford and Macadam���the last named, it will bc
remembered, was fitly dubbed by "Punch" "the Collos-
sus of Roads." The ceremony of the opening of Kings-
way was marked by such pomp and circumstance as
the times permit. Had all thc King's horses and all
the King's men taken part in thc parade it would not
have been out of harmony with the event for the opening of a great highway from Vancouver, a city which
is making history, lo such a historical city as New
Westminster through such interesting, ambitious and
enterprising municipalities as South Vancouver and
Burnaby is an event of national, indeed Imperial importance. When Dr. Johnson was at the sale of
Thrales' business hc said the purchaser would become
possessed of "the potentialities of growing rich beyond
thc dreams of avarice"���wc might paraphraze those
words with regard to the great Kingsway, but the
riches which will result will not only be those reckoned in circulating currency. As communities develop
they become possessed of riches which have not an
official or a "declared" value but arc riches nevertheless.
Thc King-way will remain through coming centuries a monument to the energy, the -ell" sacrifice, the
wisdom and courage of those pioneers who by "the
magic of industry" have turned a forest into an aggregation of cities, for South Vancouver though not
officially and technically designated such is "no mean
city." Kingsway will give an impetus to social life,
to business enterprlze, it will be a help to health and
physical and intellectual development and create and
foster ambitions which will result in the erections of
homes and place- of business worthy of the noble environments of this splendid province.
It wa- -aid of a celebrated beauty
"If In ber lot Mime human error- fall
l.iink in her face ami ymi forgive them all."
Our local authorities may have made some mistakes
���they arc but human, but when they arc al election
times "called over the coal-" and their record viewed
in  the  fierce   light  of  current  criticism   the   people
should not overlook thc good that has been achieved
and Kingsway will bc a testimony to public spirit and
laudable achivement.
AT  Nanaimo, the strike  situation  remain- unchanged with a small detachment of military
till on hand.    The companies, in many nf which the
'eaders of the Conservative party in British Columbia are deeply interested, still stoutly refuse tee recognize the miners' union,
111 many way-, lhe local situation seem- to resemble
lhe tie-up of labor in Ireland, commenting upon which
"Reynold's Newspaper" prints the following:
"It cannot be said lhat the demands of the men
who arc out on strike in Dublin arc unreasonable or
exorbitant. They should command thc support of
every Trade Unionist throughout tlie country, for they
involve the very right to form Trade Unions. The
employers are banded together ill an attempt to smash
the Unions. Like thc Orange fanatics of Ulster, they
are a century behind their time, and they seem to
imagine tbat they can put back thc hands of the clock
by an ultimatum ordering their men to leave the
Union. Cold reactionaries are more dangerous than
hotheads like Mr. Larkin."
THE cost of living still tends upward. Statistics
published by the Labour department this week
shows that during August there was another increase-
in the average cost of articles of general household
consumption. The increase as compared with August
of last year is about three per cent. Meanwhile the
high tariff friends of the government are appealing
for tariff revision upwards, especially in regard to
wool and iron and steel commodities that vitally effect
th( cost of living. Meanwhile there is no suggestion
from any government source of any decrease in tariff
taxation or of any fiscal relief to the general consumer.
Meanwhile federal expenditures which will haye to be
met for the most part out of customs taxation, continue to mount. Meanwhile there is no sign of following the example of the United States in regard to reducing the duties on food stuffs.
Premier Borden seems to think that the problem
of freer trade in food products has heen solved by the
action of the Democratic Congress in giving Canada
THE Collingwood Parliament is recognized as an
important institution. This was proved by the
fact that in spite of heavy rain more than half the
constituencies elected members on Saturday night
and a good start was made. It was pleasant to see a
side table covered with a well selected array of books
on Political Economy. It was pleasant to hear from
J. Francis Bursill that the King's Printer at Ottawa
and Victoria recognize the value of this local parliament as an educational force and have sent a number
of reports and blue books which will bc invaluable for
The "M.P.s" of Collingwood will make good use
if these books and thc debates will I <��� far more "illuminating" than many which are heard "in another
place." At Collingwood tbe Liberals are in power and
Premier Morris may be trusted to select for his "cabinet" men who arc really capable of leading public
opinion. A strong "Opposition" and a very lively
"Independent Party" will prevent the session ever
sinking into comn-tn place dulncss.
We cannot too strongly urge our young men to attend the parliament, either as members or occupants
of thc "Strangers Gallery." Ladies also should grace
the meetings of the House. An institution like the
Collingwood Parliament has a potentiality for good
which cannot be over estimated. Again and again
We have bad to deplore the fact that the public plat-
form is the scene of crude performances in which
would-be leaders of public opinion display neither
knowledge or grace. The orators in a local parliament are forced by the spirit of emulations and the
fear of riducule to learn something about the subjects
>n which they essay to speak and the firm ruling of
"Mr. Speaker" keeps them to the point, and will noi
let them do violence to parliamentary courtesy.
Such discipline is good for the individual, and the
:ommunity, and in the moulding of Greater Vancouver���on right lines, our local parliament will have no
insignificant part.

Label the Jokes

The Gait Reporter sadly complains that some re-

vith quite serious results. Moved by the spirit of
omedy, it ventured to suggest the advisability of try-
ng certain experiments in roadmaking for the bene-
it of the automobile drivers, fully expecting that the
/em of sarcasm would be easily detected. But the
lope was vain, and now the Reporter is solemnly
barged with advising the construction of had- roads
'or the purpose of killing and maiming the autoists.
t is a serious thing to indulge in a joke these days

Barbers und Sunday
Montreal Herald
A magistrate in the police court at Paterson, N.J.,
has ruled that it is not an illegal act for a barber to
diave a man on Sunday, providing that the man   is
going to church.    The  decision  opens llie way   for
much  shaving on the  Sabbath.     For a bewhiskcred
fellow wdio would stoop tu have bis face scraped  itn
lhe holy day would in all probability be equal to telling the barber a lib.    There is a way "lit of the diffi-

customer goes to church.    The  shavers in thai   case

London Chronicle
A correspondent'of the Daily Citizen suggests that
the unnecessary and unplcasing prefix "Mr." should
be eliminated from the superscription of letters. The
deprivation of this prefix was one of the penalties enforced in our American colonies during the seventeenth century.    The records of Massachusetts show  that
n P.SO Josias Plaistowe was condemned "for Mealing four baskets of.corn from the Indians, to return
them eight baskets again, to be fined ��5, and hereafter
ii lie called Josias, not Mr., as he used to be." The
Massachusetts Penal Code also provided for docking
women of the prefix Mrs., but there is no record of

(Htawa Citizen
The presbytery of Xew Westminster, B.C., has

./  Moving  Picture Wreck at Sea
Xew  York Evening   Post
Just at first blush, it would seem that there were
several physical impossibilities for even producers  of
notion picture films.    A realistic factory fire would
e one; a soul-satisfying railroad wreck another: the
���inking of a steamship a third.    But that this last is
io more beyond the producer's power than volcanic
���ruptions and river Hoods is shown by the recent Yer-
ilmung of Hauptmann's "Atlantis" in the North Sea.
The novel, it will be remembered, was one unexpectedly advertised by the parallel wdiich the sinking  of
the Titanic offered to its central incident.   Five hundred actors were haled aboard the ocean liner G.   F.
Tietgen, which steamed far out between Cattegat and
Skagerrak.    In the  stupendous night scene of shipwreck,  rockets flared, officers  shot down crowding
men,  and droves of frightened  passengers buckled
on life-belts and leaped into the churning sea���to be
picked up by boats antl carried around to the other
side of the ship.   It is said that the consternation with
which the actors were forced to the plunge was quite
as real as simulated.    The chief role was taken  by
Frau Orlow, of the Vienna Municipal theatre; but the
hero's part was played hy the very man who gave
Hauptmann the idea of tiie novel���the armless artist,
G.  H.  Unthatt.    Shipwreck,  stage heroism, ruined

Why Baby Cries
A   Sirangv   Physiological
Warning to Housewives
DON'T start your fire with parafine or kerosene.
DON'T treasure up old rags, paper or rubbish of any sort under stairways, in attics or basements, or anywhere in your home.
DON'T put ashes in a wooden box or barrel, or close to walls or
DON'T neglect to overhaul your stove pipes oncfe a month; see that
your chimneys are swept at least twice a year.
DON'T use gasoline for cleaning purposes, in the house. It is more
dangerous than powder; powder will remain where you leave it,
gasoline vapor is shifted by air currents to all parts of the house,
and being heavier than air, lodges in out of the way corners
making trouble when you least expect it.
DON'T place your stoves or pipes within twelve (12) inches of any
wood or partition.
DON'T forget that ninety-five per cent, of our fire losses are caused
by poor and dirty stove pipes, and the placing of stoves, pipes
and furnaces too close to wood work.
DON'T have matches where they can be gotten at by children; keep
them in a covered tin.
REMEMBER, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.

Dr, Eric Pritchard, senior assistant

babies often cry because, by sn dee-
inn they benelil themselves���attracting attention, expanding thc limn*
and obtaining oxygen, but more often
from suggestion thnn from actual
pain, The first tiling to do when a
baby cries and you arc sure ii is from
pain is to try i" eliminate the most
common causes outside af the abdo
men. Redness e.i" the checks or
patches ni redness, running of the
neise and wateriness of thc eyes, are
indications of trouble with thc teeth.
Rolling nr banging the head on thc
pillow en- clutching the eats suggests
earache. Ihesc excluded, the seal of
pain is probably the abdomen.
The intestines oi a new-born baby
have te. learn i" work. That rhythmic contraction passing downward,
which i-, called peristalsis, and which
alter a litlle' practice works automatically, unless disturbed, begins only
awkwardly; ii has to be educated.
While tearing, the Intestines are peculiarly liable to trip up, causing irregular contractions and spasms that
hurt. These can nit en lie seen upon
Ihe abdomen nf a baby. Waves passing across from left In right are u
sure sign of interrupted peristalic
action. Massage with the hand, placing the baby un its stomach, nr the
application of heat, will generally relieve all trouble.
Physicians are undecided as tu why
we have stomach-ache. They say
the intestines du not pee*sis> pain
nerves, because they can be cul. lacerated nr pulled without the patient
being aware af il. On the other hand,
wc all know whai pain colic or any
eef ihe other forms nr irregular contraction of the intestines can give.
I'rnf. C. S. Sherrington suggests that
the sensory nerve endings in the intestines he regarded as highly specialised receptors, tuned nr sensitised in
receive one class oi impressions only,
namely, those which are nf an essentially useful nr pmtestive nature.
Hence ihey turn a deaf ear In all
stimuli except those which are directly concerned with lhe motor function.
Ur. Pritchard says "it is through
the instrumentality nf these highly
sensitised receptors that the Infant
acquires the power of conducting its
intestinal motor functions wiih physiological efficiency. The moment
any ill-coordinated contraction interferes with the sun mill working of the
motor mechanicism lhe infant's central nervous system is al mice informed hy the reception of painful
impressions, anil hy a series of :ilite.-
rrratic and unconscious adjustments
peace is restored. Thus slowly and
with much pain ain! tribulation the
infant arrives at physiological perfection, sn far as the peristaltic fttnc-
lieetis eef the bowels are concerned,
"Though infantile pains are merely
i stage in the education of the baby's
body it is highly desirable that they
lie as short-lived as possible, as constant abdominal pain will surely disturb the development of the central
nervous system. Remember that
when a baby takes it- firsl fond into
its stomach the movements eel this
organ start a Stbmi ����� f waves which
mil in disorder and confusion from

she was kind to him, and till that: but

and trying all the time to be exactly

Vet, strangely enough, ii was when
daddy talked nf duty that Bobby felt
the greatness most vividly. "Duty.
Babby I Thai's lite great thing in
ihis world! Always ihe ymir duty,
hoy!���no matter how  hard it is."
Already, at eleven. Bobby hail made
a strong start iu Ihis direction. Daddy knew it. tne.; feir he often called
him "Steadyboy," in a tone Bobby
loved, and spoke of liim te. others as
"a   pretty   reliable   little  CUSS."
Why, it was only two weeks ago,
when daddy brought homt that wonderful revolver, that he' proved hnw
much hc trusted Hobby. The nighl
Ihe nun came home, daddy had called   Bobby  t'e  him,  and  saiil:
"Hobby, yeiu anil mother are so

"Nancy,  I   saw  Jem   Da

Bobby plainly detected mother's
gasp uf fright, Then, there was a
- iri '.I' a rustle, and he knew lhat
she had involuntarily thrown lur arms
around  daddy's  neck,
"Oh,  Hab!"  was all   she   said.
Presently, daddy's voice sounded
again; ihis time ceehl a- i.-c���worse,
even, than when hi' talked ain ait duty.
Hubby could plainly picture, in the
darkness, tin- steely glinl 'ef those
fearli --. gray  eyes.
"Nancy, I let him uff last time,
though I couldn'l forigve him. When

comes within sight of In eme. ii there
isn't the very man himself, standing
behind a big tree, anil staring at

busily sweeps the porchl
Hubby'- arm tightened un the borax snap as he walked right past the
man. ami stared straight up in his
face t" make sure there was tm mis

Ami m. wonder daddy had felt that :
way, ieer never had Bobby seen such
cunning, cruel, beastli e ej i > i i a human countenance���such a horribly evil

"jealous" ;ee rson in thi ��orld; for al
that grand talk aboul him, ii - i nti d
' ough a Immli e .1 elcvil-, leaped into thi e leering eyes, Impetuously, the
man reached suddenly forward and
d nii'ibi r's extended hand V. -,
he dared actually to touch her with
hii   wicked   fingers!
Thai evil touch broke thi spell
which transfixed Babby; and the next
moment hi- flying feel were speeding
noiselessly up thc stairs, in-r paused
uuiil he' had reached the bureau, flung

And  yet:
"Always do yuur duty, buy'���no
matter how hard it is."
It was ban! to dis ibey daddy; but,
wasn't it his duty to protect mother:
Hadn't daddy himself said so?
li was just a single, soblike, stifled
scream, as though a heavy hand had
suddenly  closed over the mouth.
Instantly, the gleaming death-
messenger leaped from it- case, and
Hubby was dashing down the -tair-
two at a time, panting,
"I had to do it!���I had to! I've got
to -care him! He'll run all right
when  he  set--   it!"
The leering eyes glanced up jtisi
in time for the hundred elevils to peer
down the barrel of the sinister thing

For ii was very heavy, and his fingers seemed unable to find the' right
place-. He knew there was a "trigger" for one finger to go on; and
another thing called a hammer, which
had to be pulled back to "cock" it
before the gun could be discharged.
lie remembered, top, that, in cocking the hammer, ii clicked; and it
flashed through his mind that click
might do more than anything else to
scare the intruder.
With both hands, he wn stled desperately with the mechanism, But
he only grew more and mure confused. Somehow, the forefinger of his
lefi hand got caught in the luck uf
the hammer; and. as he tugged and
pulled tn gel ii free���lor lie had a
sickening fear that their terrible antagonist would spring forward and
take the weapon himself���there came

The hundred devils vanished li'.;e

man let go of mother; threw his arms
crazily in the air; staggered back a

painted on it. "RICHARD ASHLEY
X IP.SOX.   Alt.irncy-at-law."
A youngish sort of man, with the
kind of a face lhat makes you wish
its owner was one of your friends,
was sitting at a desk littered with
papers as daddy, the sweat
in great drops all over his bronzed
forehead, dashed open the door and
rushed in. dragging by the hand the
grimy, disheveled, ;md well night exhausted Babby.

said softly:

After   Bobby   hul   finished,  daddy
told what hail happened when ihey
reached   home-.
"Wh-ewl" whistled the lawyer,

up anil down the office with his

and the strongest kind "f circumstantial evidence, indicating, apparently
beyond a doubt, thai she tired it;
while we have positively nothing lo
show   lhat   Bobby  did  it."
Suddenly, Mr. Xelson rushed to his
telephone, snatched up the receiver,
anil called excitedly for Dr. Barry.
While the lawyer was arranging that
the doctor "hurry over without the
h'-- of a second," daddy whispered
comfortingly into  Hobby's ear,
"Nelson's a goeed lawyer���a mighty
good one; ami he'll dC all that man
ean   for us."
Somehow or other, they all lived
! through that frightful day. Then, later, came a trial, in the town court-
lueiise. The big room was packed
with people. And besides Mr. Xelson. the "good" lawyer, there was a
bad lawyer, whee talked and talked,
always saying nasty things, that were
nol true, about daddy and mother,
and nice things, that didn't sound
true,  aboul   the   dead  man.
Twelve men, sitting ill half dozens,
on two benches, listened to it all,
while a solemn-faced, white-haired
man, in a black gown who seemed I'e
he Ilu* buss of everything, was perched high  up on  a  raised platform.
Even Mr. Reed, the general manager of the big railroad, was there.
Hobby felt sure the great man had
come just to show everybody how
much the company thought of daddy.
Anil the manager seemed more ex-
cileel than any one else; hc would

Sends Us a Fiery Protest Over Our
Treatment of the "Voters' League"
Yes! You had "an intelligent anticipation" when you thought I should
call your account of the "Voters'
I.eigne"  meeting "Sacrilege!"
First, you refer to Scotland's national poet as "Bobbie" Burns. You
deserve to never be permitted to taste
a dram of Old Scotia's national beverage. "Robbie" if you please���no true
Scot refers to "Bobbie" Burns.
I am not Surprised at you getting
mixed up over the pictures. After
such a meeting everybody felt as
crooked as- a bed spring���but you
really should know the difference between William Ewart Gladstone and
Ralph Waldo Emerson! It was Emerson who left the hall with a shriek
and his hands on his cars���no wonder! The author of "Representative
Men" received a shock he will never
get  over.
The portrait you label "Sir Walter
Raleigh" is really Elias Ashmole���
who founded a museum. Ever since
the meeting he has been lamenting
that he was never able to secure such
"curiosities" as he saw on the platform.
I have other faults to find with your
far too serious account of a very
lively meeting���but 1 will leave further protests to my lawyer. I am
seriously thinking of sending you a
Writ over the way in which you associate my name with that of "Robbie" Burns." You really ought to
know hy this time that a lawyer can
ingeniously twist, tangle, distort, your
words into a reflection on my efficiency. I don't sec why I should
not have a "go" at you as well as
other people. In a general way, the
man who hastily runs to a lawyer is
an ass, yet I think the way you lightly refer to "grog" (which ought to be
spoken of with reverence) is ample
reason for a lawyer's letter���lawyers'
letters have been sent upon much less
provocation.���J.  F. B.

meeting said he started in Canada
with $140 and a gun���Which did he
have first?

An Intelligent Little Carleton School
Girl Writes of the Resources of
British Columbia and Wins a Well
Deserved Prize
By J.   Francis  Bursill
A few weeks ago a dark eyed, intelligent  looking  litlle  girl  came  into
lhe  Cllingw I   Library.    "Can  you
lend me a Inei.k mi British Columbia?"
she asked "Whal aspect of Briti-h
Columbia?" "I want Something about
it- national -cilery, it- forests, ti-h-
eries and mine-." and then the girl
got asking questions just iu the style
Kipling   indicates���

Ami   Where  and   Which  and   I [i.e.,
I   lent   the   litlle   maid   a   boe.k   ami
I  answered lu-r intelligent questions
and the other elay she tripped in t..
tell me she had won lhe tirst priz
fur an essay al llle Central I'ark Exhibition, Well dene Lillian! You
went the right way about getting
ye.ur "data" ami some of your es I
is worth printing. Here are a few
extracts :
"In talking of the resources of
British Columbia one has to think
more of future than of the past, for
although lor years past millions fi
feet of leiinber have been exported to
many parti1 of the world, yet there arc
vast tracts of timber still standing.
"Geologists agree that the mineral
wealth .if liritish Columbia is iii comparison untouched, and that- explot
ers will find enormi us coal fields, oil-
livls, probably deposits of peat
which will be very valuable to future
"The Progress Club and olher i r-
g.ini/.alions arc sensibly pointing out
thai the great need of Uriiish Colum
liia is to increase its agriculture. In
a province having such a beautiful
climate and being so well watered
and not being subject lo extremes of
either Ileal or cold there is everything t'e encourage the cultivation "i
the soil, especially when in the near
future there will he good mean- of
conveying to geiod markets the product! of the soil. Then, for instance,
the Fraser Valley will become farmed ami will produce great quantities
of agricultural products, and it is
plain that other countries That are
now deriving great wealth freem British Columbia, such as N'ew Zealand
for her butter, will have our trade no
more, her home Industry will take it-
"Quite recently at a meeting of
electrical engineers one of them saiel
that British Columbia was just beginning to find out what wealth there
was in its great water powers, and
be pointed out how easy and at little
cost, our mountain streams and rapidly flowing rivers could be used for
the making of electricity. This would
of course make the running of machinery much cheaper. This could
ea lly bc used for turning much of
our now wasted material into valuable products. Electric power
could also be used for irrigation in
those parts of British Columbia where
this  is  necessary.
"The greatness of our resources is
attracting large numbers of people to
come and settle in our province, both
settlers and capitalists. So with the
capital to-develop industry, the natural products of British Columbia
will bc turned into the finished article. . Instead of sending the raw material abroad as is at present, such
articles as silk, paper, bricks, pottery,
etc., will be manufactured here in
large quantities to till the wants of
British Columbia, for this province
has all the natural products ready lee
be  developed by  capital  and  labor."
There, you see the spirit of this
clever essay, 1 wish other girls (and
hoys, too) would remember that the
library, and J. F. Bursill, are hen-
ready tu help them in their Studies.
