Thi- is tlu first order "i the kind
ever placed from India with a Canadian factory, and it probably marks
tlu opening of what will develop into
an important trade connection with
the   Oriental empire.
The tie- will he shipped irenn either

Just as the. creosoted pil e- used in

proof against the Indian white ant,
a pesl which has caused the railways
of India many millions uf pounds.
Heretofore all the Indian roads received their supply of ties from  Aus
tralia and Xew Zealand, ihe bard
woods of those countries being most
satisfactory fur the making eel tie-.
As the year- ��., by, Australian ami
Xew Zealand hard wood forests are
being thinned out, with the usual result that their products have risen in
price. Hence the Indian engineers
have heen forced t" seel.' elsewhere

It is believed that when it is found
that tiie British Columbia creosoted

Wilson Heights Methodist Church
A reception was given the new pastor of this church, Rev. Mr. Ewing,
BI)., and Mrs. Ewing, on Wednesday evening, in the church, which
was tastefully decorated with ferns
for the occasion. Mr. and Mrs. Ewing
have just come from the church at
Mission. A delightful programme
was given during the evening, in
which the following took part: Mrs.
R. Green, Miss Jackson, Mr. R.
Green and Mr. G. Halltnan, duet, accompanied by Mrs. Davis; Mr. and
Mrs. Wickens, duet, and Mrs. Manuel, solo, accompanied by Miss Jackson; Mr. Hallman (senior), recitation, "Our New Pastor."
The following representatives of
the different departments gave a
three-minute speech: Mrs. Hallman
(senior), W. M. S.; Mrs. Cooksey,
Ladies' Aid; Mr. R. Green, choir;
Mr. R. Davis, Sunday School; Mr. W.
Savage, Bible class; Mr. Cull, officers of the church; Miss Clark, Epworth League, and Mr. Jackson gave
a very much appreciated address on
behalf of the congregation. The pastor made a suitably reply on behalf
of Mrs. Ewing and himself. Refreshments were served hy the Ladies'
Aid  in  the  league  room.
This was no merely formal reception. A spirit of warm friendship
was manifest. Every section of the
church has, so to speak, put its
shoulder to the wheel. It was considered by the gentlemen and ladies
of the church that the family of the
pastor, six in number, would require
more home accommodation, and after
conferring with Mrs. Ewing it was
decided   to   add     several    additional
rooms. A number of the gentlemen
are professional carpenters, and these
gave their services. Mr. Sparks. Mr.
F. Stout, Mr. Gazehy and Mr R.
Green wcre leaders in the cause,
many others rendering assistance as
desired. The Ladies' Aid gave the
Now the parsonage is increased in
value  some  hundreds  of dollars, and
the pastor  has a  commodious house.

The members of the Epworth
League are all alive and are active
for the church. They graded the lots
on which the church and parsonage
are situated, erected a fence and have
about completed a court for lawn
tennis. They also served meals not
only for their own workers on the
grounds, but for those working on
thc parsonage as well.
As   might   be   expected   from   such
a   body   of   workers,   the   church   finances  are  in  a  good  condition.

Owing to the fact that the people's
warden of the above church has left
the district, a vestry meeting was
held on Monday evening last, when
Mr. H Matthews was elected to the
eiffice, in the place of Mr. A. Keel
The meeting also decided to hold
their Sunday evening services in the
open air (weather permitting), on the
lawn at thc house of Mr. W. G.

Recently the world was electrified
by the report of oil ftetind near Calgary. For months prior tn this,
new-papers in Calgary had heen telling of the excellent prospects of
striking oil in paying quantities and
altogether a great amount of publicity had been given to thc fields
long before any evidence of the existence of oil appeared. Fortunately
for Alberta's reputation, oil in at
least one well litis been encountered
in quantities which appear to be sufficient to Justify unlimited prospecting in that district for other wells
Contrary to this barn-storm method
of developing and exploiting oil,
British Columbia has been quietly
going on in the vicinity of Vancouver, in fact, within twenty-four miles
of the centre of the town, constantly
drilling for oil with every assurance
of success.
This oil drilling and prospecting
has been carried on by men prominent in the affairs of Western Canada, as evidenced by the directorate
of the Company They placed their
money into the proposition after a
thorough examination by experts and
after seeing for themselves the excellent surface indications, proving
in their own mind that oil existed at
Pitt Meadows in large quantities.
The public was not appraised of the
efforts of these operations, nor has
any appeal been made to the public
for financial aid, nor one share of
stock offered in order to raise funds
to carry on the work which has been
going on for nearly two years.
So quietly has this work been going
on that very few people in Vancouver really know of the existing conditions.
Early Explorations.
The fact of the matter is that more
than twenty-three years ago the C.
P. R.. in prospecting for coal at a
point near where the present oil
fields are being bored, struck a
heavy gas flow with a diamond drill.
At that time the gas was of no value
and oil had no commercial value. For
this reason the incident was soon forgotten.     While   seepages   and   other
indications nf gas hare been discovered ami prospecting done in a desultory   way   fe-r   several   years   at   l'itt
Meadows, not until the wells, known
I locally  as   the'   Paterson   Wells,  was
t there  any  systematic    or    intelligent
prospecting  accomplished.
The following is a copy of a letter,
��� from which may be drawn the remarkable features of the discovery of
!e,il at Pitt Meadows The C. P. R.
knew there was oil there a quarter of
a century ago. but so vast were more
accessible stores .ef natural wraith in
B. C. at that time, that .iii possibilities were not exploited���that was

Albion, B. C,
June 13th, 1914.
Mr.  VV.  Iunes  Paterson,
Vancouver, B. C.
Dear Sir:���Re information as to
the records of our operations when
boring f.ir the Canadian Pacific Railway Co., on Kanaka Creek, in the
Port Haney district, I beg to state
that during the years I was employed
as day foreman and assistant driller
while the operations were in progress, we drilled for six months and
put down a well to the depth of 1.365
feet. At a depth of 300 feet, gas was
encountered, and when a depth of
fitlO feet was reached, the gas volume
became much greater and was accompanied by a flow of oil and water,
which shot at least 80 feet into the
air. This mixture had a very strong
odor of oil. so much so that it was
difficult for the men to work, until
we were able to case it off. In the
operations we went through sand-
ste.ue and conglomerate and were in
the latter when we ceased operations.
At any time after a depth of 300
I feet was reached, all we had to do
to secure a gas light was to punch
I heiles in a small can, put it over the
top of the pipe and light it. when it
i would burn continuously. At that
i time we were prospecting for coal
and were disaopointed in not being
! -uccessful.    Oil  indications  were  not

highest of those submitted, the South
Vancouver Council has awarded the
work to tiie firm which made a splendid name for itself, so far as South
Vancouver is concerned, in the carrying out of the contract for the paving
of  Kingsway.
Possibly vhe largest factor which
influenced  the  council    in    selecting
bitulithic. was a petition submitted
by the ratepayers interested in the
Bodwell Road section favoring a
bituminous pavement. The ratepayers claimed of bitulithic that it
possessed the following qualities:
Cheapness, durability, ease of cleaning, light resistance to traffic, tion-
slipperiness. ease of maintenance,
fav.erableness to travel and sanitari-

Politicians of Both Parties Turn Deaf
Ear to People's Protests.
The greatest peril that menaces
Canada today is not the possibility
of invasion by an armed foe, but
the unrestricted and directly encouraged immigration of illiterate
hordes of cheap workers from European countries, where the standards
of morals and living fall far below
the past ideals of Canadian citizenship. That is the menace at our
doors, the menace, indeed, that
threatens to lower our standards of
living and our ideals of morality and
conceptions of right and wrong. It
is undeniable that crimes of violence
arc rapidly on the increase. From
one end of the Dominion to the
other comes the same story of thousands of unemployed in what should
bc a busy season of the year. Native
Canadian labor is being rapidly
displaced by the inrush of an undesirable class of uneducated and cheap
workers who arc lowering the standard of livelihood, and making it an
even more serious question as to how
the native or English-speaking
workers are to earn a livelihood in
the face of the slave labor that menaces them. The politicians at Ottawa of both the old political parties
have turned a deaf ear to the protests and importunities of the people.
At a time when existing conditions
should bc causing them the most serious concern, they resolutely close
their eyes and refuse to see the danger that confronts the nation and
would fain remain ignorant of the
fact that a situation is being created
that    may    eventually    mean    blood-

The home of Mr. and Mrs. Hatch
on Fifteenth Avenue, was the scene
of a pretty wedding on Wednesday
evening, the 10th, when their eldest
daughter, Gertrude, was united in
marriage to Mr. W. A. Prime of
North Vancouver, Rev. N. A. Harkness of the Grandview Baptist Church
performing the ceremony, in lhe presence of relations and immediate
friends. Throughout parlor, dining-
room and hall lhe decorative scheme
was carried out in maple leaves and
carnations and made a very pleasing
setting for the wedding festivities.
The hride, who was given away hy
her father, looked lovely, attired in
white mcssaline silk, with lace trimmings and pearl ornaments. A wreath
of natural orange blossoms crowned
the long bridal veil of tulle, and the
shower bouquet she carried was of
white rrses and carnations. Freda,
the little sister of the bride, took the
part of flower girl, and looked very
sweet, as shc daintily scattered, in
thc bridal path, blossoms from her
basket, while Mi��s Olive Aitchison
played thc wedding march. The
bride's sister, Miss Rhoda, was
bridesmaid, and wore a becoming
frock of white flowered crepe, and
Mr. M. H. Ilarlouk was best man.
After thv ceremony a delightful wedding supper was served, the large

Clark Park, or Buffalo Park, as it is,
perhaps, better known, which is a
most delightful play-ground for all in
search of recreation and amusement.
Here is found a most excellent tennis
court, where enthusiasts find the
best possible conditions for the game
they most enjoy. A splendid ball
park, suited to all classes of athletic
spe.rt, lacrosse, ball or cricket. An
artistic band stand, from which, on
special occasions, "music's golden
tiengue" speaks to "soothe the savage," as well as the civilized citizen.
There are winding gravel paths,
shaded by giant trees, "whose slender tops are close against the sky,"
where young lovers may walk and at
the psychological moment get a vision of the "light that never was on
land or sea;" a bubbling fountain
and a shallow pool of water where
young children may safely play.
Many comfortable seats on grassy
lawns that arc veritable carpets of
emerald velvet, embroidered with
beds and borders of beautiful many-

enjoy his book, and the tired mother
find rest and relaxation from household care.
The Passing of

From the pen of a member of the

The following interesting description of the illustrous actor and actress, culled from the Winnipeg
Town Topics, will be read with interest, especially by those who listened to Mr. and Mrs. Irving recently in Vancouver:
"Lovely and pleasant in their
lives, and in their death they were
not  divided."

it was difficult to think of them

one in spirit and aim, each absorbed
in striving for the good of the other.
As a member of the Women's
Press Club I had the very great
pleasure of meeting them both. The
little club room in the Industrial
Bureau, where members foregather
on Thursday afternoons, has received
a number of distinguished and delightful guests, but none will be remembered with greater warmth of
appreciation than the Irvings. They
came in as strangers to nearly
everyone present, and in ten minutes
seemed like old friends, in that they
had so quickly assimilated the tone
of the gathering. The camaraderie,
the gentle-fooling, did away with
every idea of formality, and, though
time was precious, and they had
many demands upon them, they lingered and seemed loath to go.

It is a recognized fact that Collingwood did herself proud on Friday

Among those who helped to make
it a success may be mentioned:
Messrs. J. Fraser, R. Smith, W. H.
Kent, Tom Prentice, Alex. Ford,
Baker, Pringle and others; also Mr.
J. F. Bursill, who gave some very
valuable advice. Credit must also be
given to the ladies who so kindly
donated flowers, and assisted with
the decorating. Mr. Chas. Battison
kindly supplied the teams and wagon.
But, while giving these people all
the credit that is due them, we must
not forget the band, which rendered
such excellent music, and which
went very largely towards the success.
The committee very sincerely thank
all those who helped to bring Collingwood  to tlle front  on  that day.

"The truth at all times firmly  stands
And   shall   from  age to age  endure,
AT a recent meeting of the Vancouver City Council, the question of buying some eight thousand
dollars' worth of valves for the water works department came up. The Terminal City Iron Works, a local
concern employing Vancouver labor, paying Vancouver taxes and helping to build up a Greater Vancouver, were twelve hundred dollars higher in their price
than the Crane Company, a big trust, with headquarters at New York or Chicago.
Eight of the sturdy fathers of the city upheld tlie
American octupus, the Crane Company; eight stood
by the Vancouver infant industry. The Mayor had
the deciding vote and, be it said to his credit, he
gave the benefit of the doubt to the local industry.
What has the Crane Company done f r Vancouver?
Trtie. they have a splendid office building. They
employ many stenographers and clerks. If conditions
suddenly slumped in British Columbia, would the
Crane Company stay in the city very long? Not
much. The "to let" sign would likely soon be hung
over the front door. The stenographers would be dismissed and the clerks would have to find new pastures.
What has the Terminal City Iron Works done for
Vancouver ?
Some years ago the heads of the firm started into
business in a small way. They bought a site for
their industry, bought machinery and put up a building. Ever since the day the Terminal City Iron
Works opened its doors, it has been adding its weight
to rush the wheels of local progress. The company
hires machinists, foundry men, moulders and so
forth. These men are paid top notch wages. These
wages are spent right in Vancouver.
Every time the City of Vancouver gives the Terminal City Iron Works a contract, it takes the people's taxes and gives them right back to the people.
Every time the City of Vancouver gives an American trust a contract, it takes the people's taxes, binds
a big chain around them, shoots them over to Pittsburg, Podunk or Philadelphia to provide prosperity
for these distant cities.
These big outside fellows, according to complaints
made to the city council, are adepts at juggling prices.
In the case mentioned, it was charged that the last
time the Crane Company supplied the city with these
particular valves, the figure was much higher than
that of local competitors. You see, the idea is to kill
competition. The big fellows don't like to see the
little chaps get along. Development of local industry
means death to big outfits like the Crane Company.

members of the union, though but ten per cent, of
the total of the miners, have so terrorized the remainder and the public, that the troops have felt justified
in firing upon them with machine guns. That some
strikers' women and children are said to have been

or one section of the people seeking by lawlessness
and crime to dominate the rest.

AS to the cause of the great strike ou Vancouver
Island and the methods used by tlie minions of
Mackenzie and Mann in settling the trouble, British
Columbians are by this time well informed.
It is not surprising that the owners of the coal
areas on the island should endeavor to vindicate themselves. A campaign of publicity has been undertaken
in the East with a view of making the cause of the
working men on the island as ridiculous as possible,
Sir Edmund Walker, head of the Bank of Commerce, and Mr. '/.. A. I.ash, legal adviser to Mackenzie and Mann, control a weekly publication which has
a wide circulation in the rural districts of Canada���
"The Canadian Countrymen." In this manner docs
"The Canadian Countrymen" endeavor to make
friend-, for the big interests among the fanners:
"Canadians are interested iu Jhc present fight between Colorado miners and V. S. militia, llack of
this trouble stands the 'United Mine Workers of
America.' which, with the body of union labor and
the spirit of tlie 'I Won't Work' anarchist-, lias already sought to control Canadian mine- and miners
in the interests of their l'nited State- organitatito.
The leaders or promoters of this union'have demanded the right to dictate, and limit the number of hours
per week which may be put in by Canadian miners,
and the amount of coal which Canadian mines may
produce. To enforce their demands, backed by some
ten per cent, only of the miners of Vancouver Island,
they last year opened a campaign of violence, in
which the mildest act was the deliberate burning of
some twelve homes in one night.
"There is something seriously worth our consideration in the fact that these mine workers, in the name
of organized labor, have for years been stirring up
strife, engaging in wholesale dynamite outrages like
that at Los Angeles, and instituting such an actual
state of warfare against the rest of the people as has
prevailed recently in the copper mines of Michigan
and the mines of Colorado.   The people of Canada
IN the Province of Manitoba, Provincial election
contests seem to set the people mad. In British
Columbia in the past, Provincial elections seem to
have had a sleep-inducing influence over the people.
The Manitohaiis are at present on the eve of a contest, and the noise can almost be heard to the Coast.
The rich and the poor are taking a hand in the fight,
the churches, the lodges and the women. The great
Canadian author, the Rev. Charles \V. Gordon, whose
noin de plume is Ralph Connor, is particularly prominent in the contest as president of the Social Service
Dr. C. W. Gordon appeals to the electors of Manitoba to eliminate Premier Roblin and his government,
in the interests of Manitoba. Dr. Gordon gives evidence of having followed closely the "ways" of the
politicians, hence liis warning: "False issues will be
raised. Beware of them.'' Another warning as to the
duty of citizens: "We may be beaten" * * *
but this can only happen as a result of "the ignorance
and apathy of our people," therefore Dr. Gordon
adds: "It i.s our business to see that they get the
facts and that they are roused to duty, and this, may
I say, is your business and mine. If we get the facts
clearly into the minds of the people and arouse them
to the urgency of the issue, God will take care of their
conscience." The air is surcharged with a seriousness that has characterized very few campaigns in
the province.
Sir Rodmond Roblin, in an address in Winnipeg,
replies to Dr. Gordon in words such as these: "I
want to say here tonight that men like Rev. C. W.
Gordon, Professor Bland and Professor Osborne are
not only political degenerates, but moral degenerates
as well.   They are a disgrace to the cloth."
If Sir Richard McBride is good at reading signs,
he will recognize in the outcome of the Manitoba
contest and also in the result of the banish-the-bar
election in Ontario, the handwriting on the wall.

have to be Curtailed, but you can save the money if
you want to."���Mr. Hugh Guthrie, Liberal member
for South Wellington, Ontario, in the House of Commons ou June 1st, 1914.
"So long as I am Minister of Militia, the private
car is going lei remain: as far as I am concerned, I
am going io travel in a private car up and down this
country. . . . Whether it is militia business orl
the grand lodge, I propose to travel in a private car.]
There is no gold lace going to be cut off���not a particle of it. ... I purpose extending these drill
halls throughout the length and breadth of the country. If I had my proper allowance (of the country's
revenue) for expenditure on the militia, I would have
si;.IXX).000." This is Colonel Hughes' reply and the
Borden Government applauded him for it.
Already Colonel Hughes has practically doubled
the expenditure for military purposes since he took
Office, He has surrounded himself with gold lace,
fuss and feathers. He has spent millions on unnecessary drill halls. He has cost the country thousands
on thou-amis more of dollars by travelling through
Europe with an automobile brigade of officers on a
junketting trip and by private car trips in Canada
almost without number. Now he declares emphatically that none of the gold lace is to be cut off, that the
expenditure on unnecessary military buildings is to
be continued ; that hc should spend annually not $7,-
000,000, as was spent by the Liberals in their last
year of power, ami not the $14,000,000 or $15,000,000
which he proposes to use this year for military purposes, but no less in a single year than $17,000,000,
or almost double the amount which the Government
proposes to spend for agriculture in the next ten
years!   More than this, he has the audacity to declare
THIRTY years before he saw the White House,
Abraham Lincoln stood one day, an unknown
youth, in the slave market of New Orleans. It was
his first experience with the legalized slave traffic
in concrete form and at close range. He saw it as
it was, ugly, merciless, degrading. The humanity
in him revolted. His inborn respect for human personality rebelled. Brushing aside all the sophistries
with which the question of slavery had been defended
in Congress and apologized for in the church, and
going to the core of the problem as a social menace
and a national crime, he uncovered his head, and
there, alone and seemingly helpless, swore this solemn
oath: "If ever I get a chance to hit that thing, by the
Eternal God I'll hit it hard."
The death knell of slavery was rung when Lincoln
made that vow. Millions of money, the prestige of
long social custom, and all the ramifications of entrenched and legalized commercial privilege could
not save it. It was doomed. When Lincoln came to
tiie presidency he got his chance. He hit it hard. It
collapsed beyond repair.
The liquor traffic in Canada has stood for generations, entrenched in social habit, interlocked with
big businesses, defended in parliament. But a new
day has dawned. The bar-room is now seen to be
an economic parasite subsisting on the remunerative
toil of other industries. The drink habit is recognized as a menace to commercial and industrial efficiency. The reaction of drunkenness is desolation
<-nd despair.
And the victims of the bar-room arc not ignorant
and half-civilized blacks. They are the boys from
the best homes, scholars from the best schools, graduates of college and university, who are entangled by
the drink habit, their working capacity inevitably diminished, their moral sense numbed, their whole life
put in peril, The "old soaks" of today will be replaced hy the new recruits of tomorrow. Among
those recruits will  he���who?
Every elector in Manitoba will be in the place of
peiiver, where Lincoln was, when he stands alone in
the ballot booth on election day. Every citizen is
even now given the chance to organize opinion and
arouse conscience and direct a blow. Never before
did such a chance come. The states of the American
Republic are scorning the old liquor traffic pretensions, and even Kentucky itself is rising to strike it.
Will Canada again take the lead? Will Manitoba
stand in the forefront? Now that he has his chance
to hit the traffic a fatal blow, will the average elector
measure up to the Lincoln standard?���"I'll hit it
hard!"���"Brandon News."

Mr. Gold, who was the unsuccessful candidate in the recent election

Shi le.eiked at the lanky journalist
again   cuttingly.
"Ye a'\e been very clever, no
doubt." she laid. "Have you ever
heard of such a thing :.s a wager?"
Gordon crimsoned; he wished that
thc earth would open up and iwallow
him up; the check in his pocket was
like a knife sticking in his breasl
What would -he say if���When she
knew about that?
She went on speaking in that calm,
culling voice.
"I had a bei with my brother ihat
I ceiuld earn my living for a fortnight
by hard work. I have been here nearly six weeks, and so far there have
been no complaints. I have cleaned
your boots, and the steps, and the
knives, and Mrs. Gribb is entirely satisfied with mc."
Sir William burst into angry oaths;
he would have Mrs. Gribb prosecuted;
he would expose the whole disgraceful scheme; hc raved and waved his
arms frantically.
One of the leading figures in musical circles in
Western Canada, whose
splendid work in connection with the great pageant, contributed in a
large measure to the
success of the celebration.
.\s early as decency would permit
he went round to Sir William Master-
man's and  senl  in  his  card.
The servant was polite but not very
confident that his master would see
��� Mr. Gordon,
After having been left for ten min-
' utes to cool his heels in the hall. Gor-
: don was admitted.
Sir William sat by a huge fire, a
gouty foot stuck out stiffly before
him. He was an irate looking man,
with a red face and a thin mouth that
spoke  of bad temper.
"1 don't know you, Mr.���Mr. Gordon," hc said testily. "Hut I see you
come from the "Moon." and if you
want any copy about my daughter's
"On the contrary." said the lanky
journalist smoothly, "I have come to
bring you news of her "
Sir William stared.
"If this is some confounded press
catch lo gel further information���"
he  growled  at  last.
The lanky journalist eyed him contemptuously.
"If that is the way you choose to
receive me," he said cooly, "1 can
take my information elsewhere aneMie
better paiel feu- it."
Thc old man thumped an angry fist
on the arm oi his chair���it brought a
twinge of pain to his swathed foot anil
a string of oaths from himself.
Gordon wailed till he was subdued
"I can take you lo your daughter
this moment," he said in his even
voice. "On condition you will pay
me one hundred pounds for the information."
Sir Wiliam grew scarlet in the face;
he  spluttered incohorently.
"Rouocry���downright   robbery,"   he
managed to articulate at last.
Gordon rose to his feet.
"Very   well���then   I   shall   sell   the
information   to   the  "Moon."   he   saiel
placidly.   "I wish you good morning."
But he was not allowed to get further than the door, as he had known,
and an hour later he was driving away
from the  house in  Sir William's car,
wilh Sir William by his side, and Sir
William's check in his pocket.
They pulled up outside Mrs. Grihb's
with a fine flourish, and as hc jumped
out of the car the lanky journalist saw-
to his horror that "Jane" was cleaning the steps.
It was the first time she had ever
done such a thing at that late hour of
the morning���it was eleven o'clock!
The lanky journalist stood spellbound���not knowing what to do���and
suddenly she turned her head and
came face to face with Sir William.
There was a tragic silence; Gordon
felt a strong desire to burst into uncontrollable laughter���then Jane moved forward quietly.
"Will you please to step inside?"
she  said.
The  two men  followed  her up the |
clean   steps   to   the   front   door.     Sir
William was speechless with indignation; he had been horribly conscious
of his chaffeur's astounded  face.
Thc girl led them into Mrs. Gribb's
r    "You need not make such a scene,
��� father,"   said   Lady   Evelyn   St.   Clair.
| rather contemptuously, "If you like
to wait a lew moments I will come
with you. I only have a few clothes
ta pack, and to as'; Mrs. Gribb feer a
reference," she ended with a note of
defiance; she picked up her apron
from the Hoor and turned to the door.
The  lanky  journalist  took  an   agi-
itated   step   forward.     "Please  wait   a
'moment.     1���"  but    she    apparently
neither saw or heard him.
Half an hour later Sir William and
his daughter drove away, and Gordon
I went back  to  face  the  tearful  bewil-
, dcrment of Mrs. Gribb.
To escape from it he shut and locked himself into  his room; anger and
j shame   were   lighting  for  mastery   in
his heart.
The girl's parting words to him had
been that she h iped hc would give a
true and graphic account of the whole
story to the "Moon," not omitting to
I mention the excellent way in which
she had cleaned his boots.
Her sneers had infuriated him, and
yet there was something appalling in
the knowledge  lhat  he would     never
see her again;  that  he  tried  to  ihink
I e.f something else, tricel to forget; it
j was not easy.
That evening he had a curl letter
I'r.nii llu- "chief" In say thai as he
had failed I" deliver the article inr
thai e!;i_\'s issue, the office could for
the iiiiuri- dispense with his services
The lanky journalist sat down and
[hid Iiis  face in his hands.
Outside in the- cold niclit some boys
wen singing a Christmas song in
lusty if not very musical vnices,
"I wish yuu a merry Christmas; I
jwlsh   you  a   merry   Christina-'"
It  sounded like a mocking voice to
the  lanky journalist,  and  all  at  once
lhe   knew   what   was   lhe  matter  with
him. why he felt so wretched and de-
I pressed.
It was not because of his dismissal
'from  the "Moon."   It  was because  he
had heen  fool enough to fall in  love'
with Jane, inly  daughter of Sir William Masterman.
There was a thick fog on Christmas
Day; such a thick fog that even thc
joy-bells rung from the church in the
next street to that in which thc lanky-
journalist lived sounded as if they
were being rung miles up in the sky
by  wraith  hands.
There were very few people in the
streets, and those that were obliged to
go out thought longingly of cheerful
fires and comfortable chairs.
But the lanky journalist thought of
neither: in fact, it did not trouble him
at all whether it was Christmas time
or not, as for a week he had been lying in bed, fever-tossed and pain-
racked, ministered to only by Mrs.
A night job of free lancing had
given him a chill, and after a vain
struggle he had been forced to give in
and take to his bed. Thc doctor shook
his head unsympatbetically and told
him it was going to be a long illness.
Mrs.   Gribb   rustled   up   and   down
stairs when she was obliged to, and
got wind of his dismissal from the
"Moon" and was getting anxious a-
bout  her weekly payments.
At eleven o'clock she went out. leaving Gordon to the care of the - il-
Ijery  maid,  wh.,  had  no  home  t���>  go
It was a dreary day for them both;

I    "Mr.  Gordon," she said gently, as
if she did iK.t believe hc could hear.
Gordon smiled weakly.
"Hello," he said feebly.
Sudden tears dimmed the blue eyes
bending over him. but she smiled, and
then all at once the lanky journalist
knew  who it was.
He  tried to raise himself.
"Why���why, it's Jane," he said in
a husky whisper; then memory came
back to him. his white face crimsoned,
"I beg your pardon," he stammered.
"I've been so ill; I've forgotten���I've-
"I Ii' e being called Jane," she answered swiftly. She had taken off her
fur coat; she was betiding above the
smoky lire, trying to coax it to blaze.
Presently she lit the gas and drew
the blinds against  the dreary fog.
"I only heard this morning lhat you
were ill," she said. "The editor of
the "Moon" dined with us last night.

Sin  came back to his bed.
"What have you had to eat to-

He sheee.k his head.
"They sent mc lome beef tea; but
it was greasy and cold."
She frowned a little as she walked
out of the room; presently he heard
hcr call tu the little maid in the basement.
When she came back some minutes
later she carried a steaming cup of
She put a strong young arm beneath his head and fed him with it
From a spoon, like a baby.
His mind was in a whirl of wonderment, and yet. of all the questions he
longed '.u .'!-'; lu-r. not one would take
definite shape in his brain.
When he had drained the last drop
she laid him hack un  lhe pillow.
She itood fur a moment looking
down at him am! there was something
jthat was pily. and yet something
greater than pity, in her eyes.

He groped fur her hand and raised

said reiughly. "1 was a cad the way

tried to drag himself up in bed, but

Judge Shaw Testifies  to  the Advantages of a
Juvenile Court for South Vancouver
Judge Shaw, speaking to a representative nf The Chinook, said he
wished to particularly emphasize the
great value of the juvenile court to
the Community, a value which the
general public do nut seem to fully
realize. The great work is carried
e ni in a manner altogether different
from the peilice court. It is not punishment that is aimed at, but it is
an effeirt to turn boyi and girls, not
constitutionally criminal, but with
wayward tendencies. Into ri��ht paths,
and tie make out of them good and
useful citizens.
The boys and girls who are brought
before it are fur the most part not
criminals; are not bad, but are
simply very human boys and girls
who need help, guidance .ind control;
who have gune astray largely Ihrough
the supine indifference and negligence
of parents or guardians ur fur want
uf   pruper   home   influences.
From an economic standpoint the
Icourt pays. If we unly succeed in
I saving one buy from hccuniing a
I criminal,   people   may     readily     esti
mate the saving to the country oi
the outlay involved in dealing with
this criminal. On the either hand,
every such boy is a valuable asset
to thc city���une more prevented from
becoming worthiest and a burden���

and girls will be the men and women

Brief Sketch
of Central Park P
Services  Will  Be  Held on
Anniversary services will, be held
ill Central Park Presbyterian Church
(corner of Kingsway and Houndary),
next Sunday, June 21st, when the
preachers will be, in the morning (11
a.m.), Rev. Professor W. R. Taylor,
Ph.D., Westminster Hall, Vancouver, and in the evening (7.30 p.m.),
Rev. Professor A. E. Wicher, D.D.,
San  Anselmo,  California
Since opening last year,' this
church has made good progress. All
the organizations are live and doing
splendid work. The pulpit is at present supplied by Mr. J. Richmond
Craig, from Westminster Hall, and
the congregation, especially in the
evening, grow larger and larger.
Owing to its central and unique location, Central Park naturally attracts
many   strangers   and   visitors.
The Ladies' Aid. under the presidency of Mrs, W. Kirkland, and with
the secretarial work in the hands of
Mrs. Thomas Todrick, boasts of
having raised more money by means
nf their efforts than any other auxiliary in Greater Vancouver.
The efficient choir, under the capable leadership of Mr. T. M. Howat,
has done much to the attractiveness
of the services, and has contributed
greatly to the phenomenal success
which the record of the year's work
An effort is being made, during thc
ensuing week, to wipe out entirely
the small balance of the church debt,
and'to this end the special services
are expected'to contribute not a little.
Both the preachers are men eminent
in Western church life. Professor
Taylor has just been appointed to the
chair of Oriental languages in Toronto University, and is probably the
youngest man to hold such a high
position in the world's largest university, while Dr. Wicher, an expatriated Canadian, is one of the strongest men the American Presbyterian
Church has. As a preacher and
writer he stands in the very front
rank of the younger men of the time.
"-. Wicher has also written some
very beautiful verse, and bids fair to
take a place amongst the preacher
poets of  our  times.

Oil Experts Secured.
The services of no less than eight
experts have been secured by the
original owners of the wells to examine Into the merits of the surface ill���
dications and local conditions andi
every one of these, without an exception, have expressed their opinion iu writing to the effect that there
is at Pitt Meadows a large body of
commercial oil, which can be had
with a limited amount of prospecting. Again the fact that these wells
are located near tide water, a pipe
line can easily be built from thc wells
delivering eiil direct to the oil tankers, which will make this product
more profitable than oil found in
mure remote parts of the country,
where heavy freight rates must be
met with.
Paterson Well  Started.
About two years ago, after a
thorough examination ol Pitt Meadows oil district, and vicinity, by oil
experts, men who had examined into
the possibilities of oil in different
fields throughout the world, Well
No. 1 was started. Drilling was
commenced at a point near the centre uf the oil area, which comprises
an area of about 4 1-2 miles wide and
28 miles lung. Well No. 1 was sunk
to a depth of 1,284 feet or thereabouts, this well being put down
through an unknown strata, encountered a heavy flow of water. The
bailers, however, just before the well
was abandoned on account of water.
all carried some oil and this fact,
takeji intn consideration, together
with the fact that there were 1,284
feet of water in the well, is remarkable, as il is a fact that in thc older
arid pronounced oil wells in different parts of the world, borings in
many instances would not show any
oil with such a tremendous water
pressure. Well No. 1 had encountered the oil sands and prnved to lhe

\"o. 2 well is a model of construction. It is drilled perfectly straight
feir a depth of 1.170 feet and is cased
all the way to the bottom with heavy,

this depth, in the early morning of
