Array AMONG the depositors in the Dominion Trust Company were two ladies well known in South Vancouver who have devoted their lives to hospital nursing. These
ladies had some $8,000, the savings of many years, on deposit with the compan y. Some time before the doors of the company closed they were called upon by the
then managing director and were advised to withdraw their savings from the company and reinvest them with him in a certain syndicate. These ladies were told that
the proposition this syndicate was going ahead with was perfectly gilt edged. As a matter of fact they were led to believe that it was because of the kindly feeling the manager had for them���because of the long personal relations between them and the officers of the company���that they were being allowed in on the ground floor. They
were told that the money would double itself in a very short time. So these ladies gave up their earnings. The money was withdrawn from the trust company coffers and
handed over to the managing director. Scores of South Vancouver residents had their little lifetime savings tied up in the Dominion Trust Company. Surely the Government will amend the laws of the Province so that there can never be a repetition of the Dominion Trust Company collapse.

Facts and Fancies Concerning
Forthcoming Municipal Elections
Writer Views with Grave Alarm the Activity of the League and
Decries Petty Politics
(By "OBSERVER")
Cedar Cottage Snapshots
The time e,f election is at hand and
councillors and would-be councillors
are preparing for tlie fray. The Iir-t
to take the platform is emr old friend
A. H. Lewis, of ilie Voters' League,
li i- whispered he Intends to have a
she,t at the council this time. Less
than a year ago Mr. Lewis was delightedly announcing that at last the
municipality had a council after his
own heart. The Voters' League had
been successful iii electing its candidates. But, alas and alack! All i-
ilot gold that glitter-! The secretary
of the Voters' League is once more
alter the scalps of councillors and is
again attempting to rouse the ratepayer- to assist in plucking the plums
of office.
*       ef        .
Talking of the plum- of office naturally .sends line's mind back to the
early part of the year, when the famous head-chopping teeok place'. What
a stir it made! And how delighted
were tlle small and jealous-minded to
see old and faithful'servants of the
municipality turned adrift! What a
sad spectacle il was at the lirst meeting of the new council to witness the
delight and to listen to the cheers
which greeted the actie.n of the council in stopping work on Main Street
paving contract! Thc very men who
now crowd around the municipal hall
-daily for work! How Ihey cheered
when, on the motion eif Councillor
Cold, a stop was put to their only
chance of n irk in the nnmicipaliry!
And with whai glee they greeted the
dismissal of men whose only offence
was that Ihey had a regular job in
the service of the municipality! Is
friend Lewis weirking t'i the same
end this  time?
I noli with regret that some of the
councillors seem to have best their
head- at the pre.sped of an empty
treasury, Instead of grappling with
the financial problem in a busim ���
like way they have, in a panic-stricken lit of timidity at the approaching
election, attempted to deal with the
crisis in a narrow, pettifogging spirit
unworthj "i public men. The reduction of laborers' wage- from $.1 a day
i" $2 is understandable, because it
may be argued that "half a loaf is
better than no bread" and that tlle
money will go further whei, it is
available. But, what sense i- there In
reducing the salaries of the permanent
staff from 5 to 10 per cent, for a per-
i.nl of two months? What is gained
bv it? An election cry on tin- saving
of a paltry $.*m! That i- all. lint
what el-e does it mean? A discontented Staff just al tlle busiest time of tlle
year, when -"in. of the- staff will be
expected to weerk overtime for weeks
"ii end. without extra pay, in getting
out the voters' lisl and tlie annual
statement. Hah! Such paltry meanness on the part of public men, for
the sake of an election cry. is pitiable
in the extreme and fully warrants the
ratepajers in rejecting them on election day. Because, men guilty of such
petty cheeseparing demonstrate their
inability to deal with public matters
in a broad-minded and statesman-like
manner. What have the two guilty
councillors to say about it?

To the looker on there was no sense!
or reason in the inaniier in which the
council set abeiut lhe reorganization i
of tlie municipal staff. What was the
net result of all the head-chopping?
A reduction in running expenses? Perhaps! Increased efficiency? Perhaps:
but in the opinion of many decidedly
not. The public was led 1" expect
some head-chopping; thev were not
disappointed. Hut the public did mei
expect that officials and clerks against
whom there were im complaints would
be turned adrift, only I" be replaced!
by others unfamiliar with Iheir new
duties and whose appnintments seemed to be made on the principle of
"You vote fnr my man and I will help
ye en to elect yours." Because it
must not bc overlooked that Councilleir Cold probably spoke the truth
when he and Councillor Winram cast
accusations at each other over the
council table as tn the manner in
which certain appointments were
made. And it is a fact that some of
the new appointments, all made in
private, resulted in relatives and
friends securing jobs vacated by men
against whom not a ceunplaint had
1" en lodged. That fact stands out
black and clear; and it must lie recorded against the Voters' League
council.    What  has  Friend   Lewis  to
sav about it?
*    *    *
After Councillor Gold's retirement
.members of the council seemed to
come to their senses somewhat; and
it must be said to their credit that
South Vancouver since -May has done
a good deal of work. In fact thc
council has done too much; with the
result that now they are faced with
a financial crisis. In some respects it
is difficult to blame councillors because they were actuated by a desire tei give as much employment as
possible to ratepayers in the municipality, and if money due had come in
all would have been well. But some
$7iKI.IXI0 due to the municipality has
not been paid into the treasury,- con-
scepiently it is empty, or nearly S".

Tlu-rc wa- a splendid turnout at the
Club Rooms, Main Street, last Friday
night, Nov, 0. the occasion being a
"Free Smoker."
Every seal in the ball was filled
and the S. R. O. sign was up when
the president of the association, Mr.
G. M. Murray, took tin- chair.
There wen- three speakers billed for
tin- programme, but unfortunately Mr.
Joseph Martin anel Mr. Donald Downie were prevented from being present.
Tobacco and cigar- were passed
freely round ami after the- audience
had suiiike-ei itself iui" e'--"! humor
the chairman opened the meeting with
a iew remark- in which be declared
that at this time, though the Liberal
party would discountenance any action which wouhl tend to embarrass
i'h- Dominion authorities in their support ..I the Mother Country, that attitude would riot prevent them discussing and criticising questions
which were of public importance ami
that had no bearing on the war i|tics-
tion.
Councillor Winram scored the Dominion Government on its tariff policy
and went int" a few statistics sh"W-
ing where the high tariff wal! was
militating again-t the industrial progress e.f Canada. Ile also look occasion t" criticise the Provincial Government anil the P. G. E. Railroad
which he saiel wouhl eventually lie a
burden on the taxpayers.
Mr. G. G. McGeer gave a rousing
address in which lie t��� ������ ��k- the provincial government severely to task. The
present deplorable financial situation,
which we bad in Vancouver at present, said he. was directly attributable
to the loose financial method- the government had employed in handling
the' affairs of tlie province.
The   headliner  nf  the  evening  was
the   old   veteran,   Mr.   Ralph     Smith.
whose   splendid   address     woke     the
audience i" a high pitch of enthusiasm.
Mr.   Smith  spoke  in  a  general  way

of tlie peisition of Canada at the present juncture anel she.weel that while
he was one of the main advocates of
a political truce during the war, he
for one would not allow that to influence him in criticising the government feer its bad management of the
country's affairs since their entry into
office. Questions of vital importance
t" the future ami present wellbeing
of 'he province and dominion at large
could ii"'. be allowed lo drift along.
Mr. Smith concluded his remarks
with rousing words in which he paid
warm tribute t" the splendid manner
in which all citizen- of the Empire
hael co-operated with the Mother
Country in its aim to put a stop to
the sy-tem of militarism which tlireat-
ened tin- whole civilized world.
Mr. John Mackenzie-, a braw Scot
frae the laml o' the heather, and a
new arrival in thev pairts, roused the
audience with a speech which breathed
inspiration t" hi.- listeners. He rc-
ferred t" tin- early pioneers of Canaela. many of whom came from the
N'orth of Scotland, who had left their
little crofts in the Old C"iiniry because of the despotism practised by
tory landlords in preferring to raise
deer to allowing them t" cultivate the
soil and raise their families. The
South Vancouver Liberal- have got
an acquisition te, their ranks in this
young man and we will be keenly disappointed if be does ti"t make a repu-
tati'.n for himself among tbe Liberals

Other speakers .'hiring the evening
were : Mr D. W. Grimmett. who attacked the banks; Mr. Fred Ogle, who
maele a plea for clean peelities and
Capt. J !'��� Holden, who spoke on the
land  question.
All over it was an exceedingly pleasant evening anel reflected a great deal

NORTH FRASER HARBOR
THE engineers employed liy tlie North Fraser
Harbor Commission have been given thirty days'
notice that their services must be dispensed with
owing to lack of finances, is tlie announcement made
this week.
Does this mean that the plans of thc North Fraser
Harbor Commission are to fall to earth?
If it does, the municipalities abutting on the North
Arm of the Fraser are placing themselves on record
as being very short-sighted civic corporations.
Already the Dominion Government has gone on
record as being prepared to finance an ambitious harbor scheme for the North Arm. In fact, it is stated
that appropriations for thc work have already been
arranged. Before the Dominion Government places
the money in the hands of the commissioners it naturally expects to know just what the commissioners propose to do with the money. Before the commissioners
decide details of expenditure, they must have certain
plans drawn up by competent engineers whose salary
the commissioners must pay.
Now, if it is worth while for the Dominion Government to spend $25,000,0(30 on the North Arm, the
harbor project must be of some benefit to the municipalities interested. These municipalities will reap any
benefits accruing from the development of a great harbor at their doors. Consequently the Government provides tha'; the Municipalities must defray the cost of
preparing the preliminary harbor plans.
So far, South Yancouver, Point Grey and Richmond
have contributed $7,500 each towards securing the
necessary plans. Hurnaby, as is well known, has practically refused to contribute anything, though willing
to become a participant in any good which will result
from the expenditures made by sister municipalities.
It is the hope of all long-sighted men that the harbor commission may receive all the assistance from
the municipalities necessary to proceed with the preparing of plans. Burnaby's refusal should not deter
South Vancouver, Point Grey and Richmond from
going the length of voting another appropriation of
$7,500 each.
It is hoped that tlie South Vancouver council will
lead the way in assisting the harbor commission. The
Government is prepared to spend millions on the river
and we must not adopt a policy which calls for stooping over ten dollar bills to pick up pennies.
umbia are met with the argument that what New Zealand ha> done, surety I!riti-h Columbia can do. It is
shown that millions upon millions have been spent to
create 'a network of railways' in the Pacific province,
but without people producing something substantial
from the soil, these railways become a burden rather
than a benefit.
"Tlie system of land tenure i" New Zealand is easily
understood. There is the 'improved farm settlement'
scheme, which was first begun in order to find work
for the unemployed. To quote from tin- New Zealand
year book on thi- subject: 'Considerable areas of
forest-clad crown land-, were Mt aside, and small contrail-, for tlle clearing, burning and sowing of these
were let to tlie men to whom it was intended In allot
them. In most cases the farms are selected or balloted
for in their primitive stale, ami the settler is for a
time paid for tlie improvements hi' makes, eir. in other
words, tlie COSl eef converting forest lands into grass
lands is advanced from lime to time by the government. In other cases a piece of forest land is taken
in hand, and men are employed at fixed rales in felling,
burning and grassing. When so much grass is laid
down as will give a good start, the land is opened
for selection- in sections of 50 tn 200 acres anil balloted for among the applicants. The farms arc let on
lease with a purchasing clause or on renewable lease
(formerly lease in perpetuity) al a rental sufficient to
cover the cost of clearing, etc., together wilh a fair
rental of tlie land. The size of holdings .averages 120
acres.
"British Columbia bas a large number of unemployed on her hands. It is felt that the adoption of
the Xew Zealand land-settlement system would be a
means of relief, providing work for willing, needy
hands. It is needless to say that politicians of the McBride stamp have given little heed to the real problems and true development of the province. They
have been chiefly concerned in framing up huge railway deals, giving practically no thought to the people who may be called upon to pay monster interest
bills, and perhaps some of tbe millions of principal."
AN ERROR IN NAMES
IN the last issue of the "Chinook" appeared an article
calling upon the Provincial Government to make
some effort towards the protection of depositors in
1'rust companies. In this article it was stated that
the Government "had watched with folded arms" the
events leading up to the downfall of certain trust
companies in Vancouver and did not take any steps
to protect depositors in such companies. It was
through an error resulting from the confusion of
names that the Acadia Trust Company was associated in the article with certain corporations now in the
hands of liquidators. The subject was inspired by
the fact that many workmen in South Vancouver
were depositors in those companies Which have been
unable to weather thc storm. They suffered, of course,
accordingly. The Acadia Trust Company has no deposits subject to cheque and is therefore absolutely
out of the classification of companies referred to in
the article. We have reports and information before
us which lead tis to believe that the Acadia Trust
Company is a responsible and solvent concern doing
business and making commendable progress. Our
columns are open to make reparation for any possible damage thus inadvertently done to the Acadia
Company.
NOT THE ENGLISH STYLE
FIELD MARSHAL SIR EVELYN WOOD, V.C.,
commandant of the London division of the National reserve, speaking of the charges of brutality
against the Germans at London, the other day, said:
"We need not fear that the liritish soldier will ever
descend to making reprisals, Thirty-five years ago I
vvas commanding 1,800 men, wdio fought against 23,-
000 brave Zulus for five hours and a half, When the
fight was over 1 desired a few friendly Zulus wdio wcre
attached to the companies under my command to collect men of every Zulu regiment, promising for each
uninjured man a 'stick' of tobacco. Next morning
there was a group outside of my tent of magnificent
specimens of humanity. When I had got all the information I required I said: 'Two months ago after
a skirmish our doctors cared for your wounded, and
when a few days later you overwhelmed our camp,
killing 1,500 of our men, you did not spare those who
bad been attending to your own brothers. Will one
of you say why I should not kill you ?' Said a young
giant: 'May I speak, O Master? You ask why you
should not kill us, I answer, because it is not thc English custom.' "
ONWARD TO THE LAND
MANY people on the outside are watching closely
the peculiar economic situation which has developed in British Columbia. Under the caption "Back
to the Land," the Winnipeg "Tribune" says the following :
"The back to the land movement has struck British
Columbia with force. Here is a province where, it
might he supposed, the tillage of the soil question
would attract less attention than in some other sections of the Dominion, where general farming has the
reputation, at least, of being easier than in the Pacific
province.    The difficulties of farming in British Col
in last Sunday's "News-Advertiser" Mr. Donald
Downie paid a graceful tribute to the memory of Dr.
de Yerteuil���wdio was known in Vancouver���and wdio
was, it is feared, lost on the "Good Hope." One
line caught the fancy of our own poet���Felix Penne.
and inspired tlie following graceful lines:
To Donald Downie on Reading His  Tribute to thc
Memory of Dr. de Vcrteuil
' 'Tis infamy to die and not Ik missed 1"
I thank thee comrade Downie for that line!
Let me imagine lips that I have kissed,
Will still, in memory, press these lips of mine
When I shall journey to the unknown land,
Shall I some memories leave Death cannot kill?
Will men wdth manly grip still grasp my hand ?
Will children listen for a voice that's still?
Death bath no sting for me���if when I sleep���
Children���and dogs���remember where I lie������
If���missing me���some gentle women weep���
And men, recalling me���shall���heave a sigh.
If word I speak���or write���helps  fellow man
To  nobler,  braver  life���to low   ambitions  fly���
I shall not���cease���When I have filled life's span.
To be remembered thus is���not  to die.

evangelistic campaign in Denver, Colorado. Official
figures of his work there are as follows:

Collected for expenses $17,000
Collected  for charities    $3,000

taken in at the meeting held on Sunday to close the
campaign. A number of persons were bruised by thc

WE KNOW of many young men wdio have left South
Vancouver for the purpose of being "tied up" for life,
but Col. Bill Chaters, the Main Street man, has struck
south wdth the plan in mind of getting untied. The
Colonel was experimented upon by a surgeon in Denver, so he alleges. The surgeon probed into the department of the interior at that time and effected certain alterations therein. The health of Col. Chaters
did not improve upon his return to South Vancouver.
Recently he conducted certain examinations on his
own account and advised friends that the doctor who
made the original incisions had done him the unkind
trick of tying a knot in a certain delicate duct associated with the digestive plan.

SUCCESSFUL CONCERT
AT   FRASER   HALL
One of the best concerts that we
have had the pleasure of attending,
.was that which was hehl em Friday,
3(>th October, in the Fraser Hall. The
concert was in aid "I lhe war fund
and reflected great credit on Mr. W.
W. Robertson, --"lo violinist, who had
the entertainment in hand. The children fre,in MeKenzie' Selieeeil were' especially good and the rendering "t
their songs were much enjoye; by
all. especially lhe inarching song of
the Hritish army. "It's a long way I"
Tipperary." in the chorus of which
the  audience joined  in.
In ihe absence "i Reeve Kerr the
chair was ably filled by Councillor
Thomas.
Mr. James  Hall rendered two numbers  in   fine   voice.     Mrs.   L.   J.   Rain
sang   "Land  of   Hope    ami    Glory,'
which was well received ami as an encore   she   eibligeel   wilh   "Calm   as   the
Nighl."     Mr.   II.   H.   McKelvie  caught
the house with hi- recitation entitled
"A Chinese Laundry," anil the way bc
handled the Chinese dialect  was tine.
i Master Albert Robertson danced him-
I self into the hearts of his audience witb
ibis    Highland    Fling   and   the'   Sweiri;
I Dance.    This boy is only eight  years
I of age but despite his tender years he
| holds   medals   feir   that   class  eef  clite-v-
I tainment.    Mr. W. II. Kelly acquitted
himself in  a  splendid manner and  his
sung.   "My   Cirl   in   Fair   H.C.."   the
lirst time sung in public was encored
! to tbe ecliu.    Mrs. W. W. Robertson
sang  Madame  Losier's  song.  "On   i"
Victory,"  with orchestral  accompaniment,   which   stirred   the   audience   tei
great enthusiasm.    The finale was tbe
"Manic Leaf Forever" anel "God Save

Warfare and  Modern Inventions
Electricity and  Modern  Science  Play as Great a Part in the War as
Powder and Shot
By  WALDEMAR  KAEMPFFERT
Modem warfare has become a business. Success v ill to a large extent
dep<ml iipeiu efficiency and the application and the use ..f the- most up-
to-date scientific inventions. The wri
ter "i this article is the managing edi
per of the Scientific American, and his
comparison of thc modern engines of
war with those of past times will be
read with especial interest at tin- present time,
li is fought as much with electricity and gasoline as with powder and
sln.t. this nar of tlle nations, Rifles
and machine gun-, field pieces ami howitzers there are in plenty, every one
of which is as complicated as an automatic piano player. It is nut th, instruments of destruction, however,
that drive home the extent to which
mechanism is employed in warfare,
but the dynamos that feed currenl te,
searchlights whose long, rigid white
pencils of light alternately sweep the
t-'fy l'"i- air,rail ami lhe terrain oppose- for the advancing infantry; the
telegraph ami iln- telephone net that
spreads "lit from the lent of a ee.in-
manding general to the- bring line;
tiie mixing machines that supply cem-
ci-eie bei- anchoring heavy mortars,
which batter down fortresses; the
gasworks that travel on rails ami on
highways and generate hydrogen for
dirigible hallneen-.; tlu- traction engines
that haul heavy cannon ami caissons;
the automobiles and ihe aeroplanes
thai whirr eever roads ami through llle

sheips in which broken-down engines
can be repaired.

"f an infantryman t" iln- dirigible silhouetted against (he sky. there is m.t
a single mechanism thai lias not been
scientifically studied in physical and
chemical laboratories ami "ti proving
grounds t" note its merits and it- limitations.
And yet despite this immense amounl of real scientific inquiry into tlle

rible number of men in the shortest

Longer Battle Lines in this War
Improvement iu mechanism has
been met by changes i��i tactics, The
armies in Europe are fighting along
fronts over one hundred miles lung.
hot eenly because 250,000 men oul eef

infantry rifle and the field piece arc S"
accurate and so deadly lhat men cannol be as thickly massed as they were
in Napoleon's elay, or as late as the
Franco-Prussian war.
Since every commanding officer in
Europe has learned the lessiin nf the
Manchurian campaign by heart, it is
certain lhat there are- not meere than
4.0IK) le, 5.IKKI men t,, the mile along

Improved Rifles and Bullets
It mtlSl be a marvellously deadly infantry rifle which lias so far reduced
iln- masses engaged for a single mile.
It- range is a mile ami a quarter, een
lln- average, anel its bullet whistles
through the air at the rate "t aboul
2.Si:'! feet a second when it have- the

projectile at the muzzle velocity oi
_'.<>'--' feel a second, and is in that respect superior to .any military rifle in
tlie world. Du ilie other hand the
French rifle has a longer range by
abeeui one-quarter en a mile.
Relatively Fewer Men are Killed
\\ Inn infantrymen are equipped
with sue-li weapons no unnecessary
chances are taken. Heroic as it may
be P. 'lie fur "lie's country, a suldier
im more relishes the idea of being
shut than he dens of being run over
by a railwa)  train.    Hi- commanding
officer   lakes   g I   care   lhat   lie   -hall
ii"i be needlessly placed in danger.
Every mound ami hillock Is used as
a shield. Ami when there is no natural protection, the infantryman eligs
ii, digs an artificial cover "i some
kin.I.
Dining iln- Russian-Japanese war it
leeeek    1,053   "lie'   ea r 11 i. iges    !���'   put   "lie
Japanese oul of the fight. Contrast
that with 1870, when one bullet oul
eef 375 feiiind it- mark, ami il becomes
immediately apparent that feu- all the
studied deadliness "1 modern infantry
tire, the soldier's l"t has improved
vastly and lhat fewer men are likely
ie, be hit in ibe present conflict than
the newspapers lead ns to suppose.
Millions of cartridges have already
been fired in Europe, but the killed
and wounded an numbered only by
thousands.
Although the armies of Europe are
equipped witli artillery nf a power and
range surpassing anything lhat was
used in tlie comparatively recent Russian-Japanese war. lhe great battles
that are now being waged will be won
by infantry. Vet the steadiest infantry Would be helpless without artillery. Nol until the enemies' batteries have been silenced arc infantry
advanced. Hence the old Napoleonic
artillery duel is still a dramatic feature of modern warfare. Hut How
changed! How puny and . utterly insignificant are the cannon that roared
at Austcrlitz compared even with the
smallest  ni.idem held gun!
How different, le.n. is the method
of firing! Nowadays the gunners,
crouching behind steel shields, never
see the object at which they are firing.    A  buttery Commander,  perched
e.n a  suppeert ten or fifteen  feel above
grieiinel. aiul screened by fi'liage. scientifically finds the range and then
corrects it by observing how the hrst
sheets fell. The accuracy of fire is
amazing. If there is any pleasure- in
tin   gam,, ihe battery commander has
it all; i"i' he alone kueews exactly what
is  happening   when  the  shrapin-l   u-
plodes,    Also he i- more likely to bei
killed   than   his  men   beecause   of   hii
elevated position.
Modern  Ammunition
Te, provide the immense amounl e.f
ammunition w hich ��III In- usee! up in
the presenl war will be no easy task
Still, there i- no likelihood thai the |
armies now in the field will run ihorl
e,f cartridges and shells Both small
ami large arms ammunition is made in
Governmenl factories, nn a scale commensurate with all tin- demands tliat
can be made upon them.
Gunpowder plays Imt a small pari
in the- presenl war. 'I'h,- explosives
used in gnus, large anil small, are
smokeless powders .ef various kimls.
Tluy are picric acid compounds, niii"-
e-e lluliise preparations made- from
gun-e"ii..u. ami forms of nltrn-gly-
ccrine   in   general.
These- cellulose powders can be
burned witli safely iu the ..pen air; for
in order t" explode they musl be con-
lined, Hence, iu loose form the are
safer than the black gunpowdci I
"h! Sue!' a -niekeles-. powder can ,
in- dampened, and. ii it docs nol mil- ;
elcw. i' is as guud af ever if properly
dried. It cannol be detonated by a
blow. Indeed, Hie stick forms "f
smokeless powder can be burned in
lhe hand  like   i match.
The discovery of smokeless powder
rendered it necessary tn modify i>r<l-
na'tee. Nitrocellulose would have-
been used sooner than it was had there
been adequate guns. Even as it is the
ordnance engineer has met quite succeeded in coping witli the high eree-
sivc effect if modern explosives.
Throwing a ton of metal  a mile to
disable one soldier
Powerful as modern batteries are.
whether Ihey are composed e.f three-
inch field pieces un lhe battleground
eei six-inch guns iu turrets, the actual
number of men killed is fewer than
mosl "i Us suspect. At Sl. J'rivat ill
1K70 ilie French fired eighty shuts,
weighing in all Ml pounds, to kill en-
maim a single German, Since that
was forty-four years age,, n might be
supposed lhat by i'KH th,- slaughter
wemld bc terrific. Yet eluring lhe
Manchurian campaign the Russian artillery in pitched battles fired about
15(1 sheets in eirder lee disable a single
Japanese. 'I'he ratio in the present
war will approximate lhat nf the Manchurian campaign. In either wordi,
modern battle-- will be won by infantry.
Communication
S" many batteries are iii action, see
many men an- distributed along the
lighting fremi that it is impossible for
a general t.i follow with his
own eyes the Course of events in which
more than 500,000 men are participating He me longer gallops up and

lie ground. Yet he krnnvs from 11��>11r

success this skirmishing line e,r lhat

down a fortification miles away. Ilis
army may cover northern France and
pan ni Belgium, but he knows more
about the movements nf each regiment ai any moment than Napoleon
eliel eif Ilis wlieele army at the Battle eef
Leipsic.
Aeroplanes and Zeppelins as Scouts
I'm the most valuable aiel of all is
the aeroplane or airship, Our newspapers have expressed disappointment
iii tin actual performances of aircraft
Romantically inclined writers hael
drawn such vivid pictures eef fierce
battles in ih, air that the less picturesque but much more important work
eef reeonnoitering, for which aircraft
of all types an- primarily intended,
has received seam attention. Like' the
torpedo-boat, an aeroplane fights only
when it must. 'I'" be sure, there has
heen semi, lighting iu Ibe air, but only
when it became necessary for one
aeroplane tei prevent another freem seeing tine much. There has been bomb-
dropping, li.ee. must e.f it just as disappointing as tin' more conservative
"Hirers i if Europe bail prophesied ii
weiuld be.
Thanks to the' aeroplane and tiie
airship, lhe commanding generals of
Europe know exactly the strength
ami pe.sitiiu, of lhe enemy against
whom tliey send their infantry .er pit
their artillery, which means that feeble forces will in. longer be ignorant-
ly ordered lu attack points that they
ceiuld never hope tie lake. In three
and one-half hours an airman can
covet a circular area eighty miles in
radius. Ile can note each opposing
regiment "f infantry, each squadron
of cavalry, each battery nf field artillery. How is ii possible, then, in
begin a flanking movement without
detection? How is it possible to concentrate un a centre and hope tu break
through? Marches screened by cavalry, feigned movements, ;rll the precious secrecy eef the "Id days is swept
away, sn king as there is daylight
ami  nn  fog.
A battle has become inure than a
series uf shrewd moves on a huge topographical chessboard extending over win ih pn evinces, each move made
..nly after the fullest information has
been obtained. Physical exhaustion
and inability tu draw upun large masses uf fresh troops seem tu bc the
chief causes fur the reverses sustained
by  generals  in   the  present   war.     All
SIX   REASONS
WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF
CREOSOTED WOOD
BLOCK PAVEMENTS
ITS DURABILITY���Does not crumble or pulverize under the densest traffic; second only to granite
blocks
ITS EASE OF REPAIR- No difficulty being experienced in removing and replacing the blocks; no
expensive plant or skilled workmen required.
ITS SANITARY QUALITIES���Creosote being a
high'y 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 smooifi surface absorbed
a.id muffled till the quiet of the dir< load is obtained.
ITS DUSTLESSNESS���Does not pulverize; the
heaviest traffic only pounding down the wood fibres
to offer the greater resistance.
TTS CLEANLINESS���Having a smooth surface and
being 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.

Advantages  of the  Airship
'I'he commander uf an airship is as
much al his ease a-- the captain eif an
ocean   liner   on   his   lirieltic     lie   can
move aboul in more or less comfort;
lie can hover over "lie >1><>t   lur  henirs
and study iln- operations below at bis
Icisurd if In- is nut disturbed by a
flock eef twei-scaied aeroplanes carrying rifles; hi: can stay aloft for a wile ele
day witlieeiit fatigue. Mure important still, hc has ai his disposal wireless
apparatus which enable- him both t"
send and receive messages leer 300
miles without tbe necessity, therefore,
uf immediately reporting each Important discovery in person,
If an aeroplane Hies at a height
grfeater than 4.5IK) feet it is reasonably safe from tiie fire nf rifles and artillery 'in the ground. Hut al lhat
height it is extremely difficult to re-
Connoiter successfully. Win ele batteries seem inure like minute crawling
insects than Runs and men, and it is
difficult  t" distinguish  cavalry  from
hnrse artillery. The temptation In
descend int" tbe danger zone in order
to see more clearly is strung. In the
llalkatis al least two aviators "ere
shut by rifles from tlle ejrr.iund because they ventured below the safe
height eef 4.IK10 feet, and in the present war. if tbe newspapers are tn be
credited, half a dozen scouts have
been killed by lire frum the ground.
Xei less than three types eif artillery
have been designed by Krupp tee be
used against airships and aeroplanes.
One of these is a nine-pounder piece.
much like all ordinary gun. hauled by
horses, bul which can be directed almost vertically upward; a sec mil i-
lo be used on shipboard, and a third
is a three-inch piece tiring a twelve-
pound shrapnel and is mounted on a
nioteer truck. These guns can rcacli
a height .if abeiut 20.0110 feet, which
ihcrcfe'rc marks the Itvwer limit "f
safety  for an airship eir an  aeroplane.
How serviceable aircraft have really
been in the presenl war appears from
Sir Jeihn French's pointed references
io them in his unadorned soldierly reports, "One e.f the features e.i the'
campaign "ii our -iib-." he writes, "lias
been lhe success of the Plying Corps.
In regard in tlie collection nf information, ii Is impossible either i" award
ine. much praise tee our aviateirs for
they way they have carried eutt their
duties, en- I., overestimate the value
eef tiie intelligence collected." I luring
a   periled   nf   twenty   days.   Sir     John
French assures us, a dally average eef
more than nine reciiiiiiaisancc llighls
nf over HHI miles each has been maintained.
The war is onlj two months nl'1
and it is rash to prophesy what lesson
il will leach. Hut already it seems
certain that the exploits performed
by tlie airman will be far more i"
structive than tlle part played by big
guns.

Xcxt week at this popular theatre
promises semi,, splendid entertainment
in high-class vaudeville.
The headliner in the bill is a sketch
by Maurice Samuel and his players
entitled "A Day at Ellis Island." The
title itself would be sufficient t" give
it a good start, 't is a story of life
itself. A tragedy and promise of the
Xew World.
Willie Dunlay ami Bessie Merrill

"Without kli\me "i Reason." These
two artists arc already well known
t" hivers of musical comedy and need
im further introduction.
The added feature is the Oxford
Tri" with their basketball on bicycles.
Reed and his bulldogs, a wonderful
canine novelty: N'adell and King with
their song and patter; Agnes Von-
bracht, vocalist: and of course the
latesl and nieest up-to-date pictures on
lhe Pantagescope go tee make up a
programme which will take a hu of

A very enjoyable social evening was
spent   in   Xei.   2   Fireball,   Kingsway
and Victoria Road. South Vancouvei,
on Friday last, t" celebrate the opening eef an addition in the form uf a
recreation room to the Fireball.
The addition, which was constructed with the material from the old
fireball on Commercial Street. Cedar
Cottage, by the firemen and friends,
proves the capabilities of the staff.
Hot and cold circulation has been
installed, while a shower bath adds
greatly to the comfort of the men on
their return from fire-fighting.
Fire Chief Lester presided over an
audience of 70 o 80 and paid a few
complimentary remarks to lhe men
on  their  workmanship.
Among those present were Councillors Thomas. Rutledge and Stevens,
who also spoke fittingly, as also did
Mr. Fox, Main Street.
A letter was read by Fire Chief Lester from Captain Gray, late of No. 2
Hall, who is now in England en route
for the front.
Every hall was represented by at
least one fireman, while a number of

The Life of a British Tar
Something  About  the  Routine   on  the  Great  Ships of the  Navy
How does the jolly tar live? What
nre the rubs of service on board the
"bulwarks oi Britannia?" These questions   are   answered   in   the   following
article, which will be rea.l with particular interest at tin- time, "hen the
safety of the Empire, perhaps, depends u]i"ti the efficiency of the floating bulwarks of steel.
"Battleships ar.- heavy-weights of
naval warfare. It is an axiom thai
the  sea-fight   of  today   goes   p,   the
ship which can hit lirst. hit hardest
and keep "ii hilling Victory i- gained  by   the   sheer   weight   of  thc   metal
a licet can plug int" ii- adversary,,
and consequently battleships are the
deciding factor, because they carry
the heaviest  guns.
For example, the Irnti Duke, our
latest battleship, carries ten 1.1.5-inch
guns, and the weight eif her broadside  is   14,300 lb.
A battleship ia a great floating f,,r-
tress from 51)0 to 575 feci long, with
a speed of about 21 knots, and nesting from ieven-and-a-half te, ten million dullars. She carries from 700 to
900 officers  and   men.
She is protected frum the shells
of the enemy by a plate of armor
made of the' hardest, toughest steel
it is possible- to manufacture, and the
men working her big guns arc shielded by steel of similar thickness.
Inside she is a perfect maze of intricate machinery. This does not refer to the 30.000 horse-power turbines
which drive her through the water,
but the various maid-of-all-work power plants fe.r hoisting ammunition, distilling fresh waler, electric lighting.
gun-firillg, and so forth. Where there
is a little space left over from all this,
the officers and crew live.
The feeding of a battleship's crew
is no small task, and the est in the
case of a Dreadnought amounts to
something like $150 a day.
The Admiralty allows the officers
exactly the same rations as the men,
and they give them to their steward,
who also gets about fifty cents a day
from each officer. The steward disposes of the regulation food allowance as he sees fit. and caters for the
officers out of the aggregate. Captains and admirals cater for themselves,  independent  of  the  wardroom

The officers of a battleship (or any
other, fe>r that matter) are divided
into twu sections���executive and civil The executive branch, from midshipman in admiral, is distinguished
by the much-prized "executive curl"
��� en tlie last baud of gold braid routiil
the cuff denoting rank.
The civil branch���engineers, ileee-
tors, chaplains paymasters, etc.���
do not wear this curl on their cuffs.
This is whal happens when a battleship Is cleared fur action:
The captain semis fnr the officers
in charge of special various branches
���the gunnery and torpedo lieutenants,
the senior engineer officer, the paymaster, lhe dncteer, ami lhe commander���and has a pow-vvow with them
regarding their respective arrangc-
niemctits. Among other things, he
would sec lhat fond was prepared to
last for a fairly long period, so that
no cooking need he done during action, yet, at the same time, the men
would be properly  fed.
Then the commander gives the
word: "Clear lower deck; a clear ship
for action!"
There follows a period of terrific
energy. Everything in the way nf
gunfire, such as boat-davits, and chains
and stanchions round the edge of the
deck, must be cleared away or laid
Hat. Arrangements are made to steer
the ship from the conning-tower, a
heavily-armored refuge whence the
captain will control the ship as soon
as she is in action. The torpedo men
overhaul their torpedoes, and the gun
crews test the electric circuits for firing the guns, look after the ammunition supply, and so forth.
Other men inspect the steeling
gear, both steam and hand,- and the
engine-room crew overhaul thc engines, raise steam lo a good pressure, and get everything ship-shape.
Water is placed handy for drinking,
and hoses arc rigged conveniently for
fire-extinguishing   purposes.
One of the greatest dangers- being
from fire caused by the enemy's
shells, necessitating the withdrawal
of men from their proper stations in
order that it may be extinguished, as
much combustible matter as possible
is thrown overboard. Wooden fittings
of any kind, furniture, wooden ladders (replaced by wire ones), arc all
Hung inin the sea. Everything possible, such as yards, boat derricks,
etc., is secured additionally, and the
decks arc cleared completely and
Hooded wilh water.
The guns' crew take their places,
men are stationed by the closed water-tight doors, in thc magazine and
shell-rooms. The doctor and his as-
si;.tatits are rcadv to tackle the wounded.
Then "general quarters" is sounded, the guns are loaded, and officers
in charge of various departments report all ready to the captain in the
conning-tower.
When the enemy is sighted, the
captain orders the 13.5-inch guns to
open lire. Perhaps the lirst shot falls
slnirt; the range is corrected, and
ihen all the main armament blazes
away Nowadays the fire nf the whole
ship is controlled by the gunnery officer from a fire-control station.
Greal   secrecy   is   maintained   in   the

Hritish service as tn lire control mc-
thiids. but we may take it lhat they
are highly efficient.
So the action proceeds. The battleship rocks and quivers from the recoil nf her own broadsides. Dense
fumes from lhe guns enshroud her.
The enemy's shells shriek about her,
and carry away her funnels, legs of
her tripod masts, .and any deck fittings that remain. Xot a fragment of
crockery  on  board  is  left  unbroken.
Down in lhe engine-ronm the stokers sweat and slave. They may all
be blown to perdition the next moment, bul until then steam must be kept
up. The guns' crews grow numbed
and dizzy with the strain. They continue   their  work   mechanically.
At last the fire nf the enemy slackens. Such of his ships as arc not
sunk surrender. The admiral makes
a general signal: "Well done our side!"
The battle is won.
Kaiser on Himself
Mr. J. M. Kennedy has published in
England a little bun!; containing quotations from the Kaiser's published
speeches,   Here are a few samples:
I am the possessor of an inflexible
determination to proceed fearlessly in
the path that has once been recognized as the right one, and this in
spite  nf all   opposition.
* * *
As 1 look upon myself as an instrument nf the Lord I am indifferent to
tlie point of view of the present day.
* * *
The soldier must not have a will of
his own���ihey must all have one will,
ami that will is mine.
* * ��
A ruler may be very disagreeable,
and I will be disagreeable if I think it
necessary.
* * *
There is only one law���my law; the
law which I myself lay down.
�� * *
The King holds his power by the
grace of God. to whom alone he is
responsible. Me chooses Iiis own
oath, and only decides his actions from
this point of view.
* * *
There is onlv one master in this
country. 1 am he. and I will not tolerate another.
* * *
II is the soldier and the army, not
narliamentary majorities and votes,
that have welded ihe German Empire
together. My confidence rests upon
the army.
* * *
The best word is a blow.
Mr. Andrew Carnegie, a very good
authority on iron goods and profits,
said a few days ago that the Kaiser
had been forced into war by the Herman war lords against his will. Mr.
Carnegie mav have quite a strong im-
nression lo that effect, but, of course,
he ha< no evidence to support his belief. That is the unfortunate thing in
connection with his statement.

Feer in  my heart's a  "triple  entente,"
That beats for one and beats for all,
Til! my poor.bead's a whirl.
Over the Fatherland and Motherland,
And the love of my best girl.
Bv day and by night
All the allies rage and fight.
'Gainst my hpart Iheir forces sending,
General Love its feert defending:
On one side waves red. white and blue,
On one. red, white and black.
And yet another side displays
The proud old Union Jack.
