nt tin-in now residents of Smith Vancouver, gathered Monday night to organize a sound and substantial Liberal organization for the biggest
municipality In the Dominion, which
ai present funis itself without representation in cither the Dominion <.r
Provincial  Parliaments.
Mr Donald Burgess, who was believed for many years lo be about the

Vancouver Island shietilel have grown
mit of the absolute negligence of the

simply perform its duty by putting
into effect law- they themselves have
placed '.ii ilu- statute books of the
Province to regulate ihe operations

'I'lu- Smith Vancouver Liberal Association distinguished themselves by being the lirst public body in lhe province,
outside of the coal regions, tei go on
tee.,rel as regretting the laxity 'if the
Provincial' Government in allowing
lhe present conditions to develop in
the coal fields.
Results from the organization work
among the Liberals which litis been
proceeding    for   sonic   weeks   iu    the
municipality have been highly encouraging le. lhe officers. Some 600
names have been turneil in of residents in  the extreme western  section
i South Vancouver who tire avowed
Liberals who desire to become affiliated with thc association. During
ihe next few months the organization, the meeting Monday night decided, would be pushed into Smith

Five years ago it was considered
that Smith Vancouver, from a Liberal pe.int eef view, was tilis.ilutely
hopeless. Statistics at tin- Municipal
Hall show lhat lhe elislrict. since that
time, has been increasing in population at the rate e.f 5,ihk) per year,
Ihese newcomers tire from tin-
Prairies ami tin- Eastern Provinces,
men who have pioneered it in other
places and have chosen the sunny
slopes .if iln- Eraser ��<> spe-ml the remainder "I their lives. The spirit of
the pioneer seems te. be- ilu- spirit of
oldtime Liberalism, and this po-si-
l.ly explains the remarkable enthusiasm with which the Liberal organi-
zation is being received.

Men Are Getting Government Support to Secure Canadian
Northern Tunnel Entrance    Mr. Bowser Will do
What is Possible
PRESIDENT  SOUTH VANCOUVER LIBERALS
Being an Irish-Canadian and learned in the law and having something
of a Parnell make-up, Gerald Grattan McGeer undoubtedly possesses a political future. He was born at Winnipeg in '83 and immediately his father,
James McGeer, well known oldtimer, moved the lad to British Columbia
where he apprenticed him, when the boy was big enough, to the trade of
iron moulder. After serving his time in the foundry, during which period
he was identified with the Trades and Labor Council of Vancouver, Mr. McGeer broke into the law business by the office boy's entrance. Shortly after,
he took a course at Dalhousie Law School, in New Brunswick. He is now
associated with the law firm of Harris. Bull and Hanningcon. He has the
reputation of being a brilliant debater. When it came around to appointing
a president for the South Vancouver Liberal Association this year he was
the unanimous choice of the organization. Mr. McGeer is the youngest
Liberal president in the Dominion.
Mr. R, C. Hodgson, presidenl fi the
Board e f Trade, Mr. F. C. Elliott,
Mr. II. I',. A. Vogel, tind ti representative from the council of the municipality, \i-iteel Vie-toria lte-t week a-
a delegation from tbe Board of
Trade tnul nrgeel upon tin- Provincial
Government the advisability of South
Vancouver securing the Canadian
Northern   Railway   tunnel  entrance.
Mr. Hodgson's report of the \i-it
to the Hoard of Trade tit the regular
meeting Monday night encouraged
the member- t.. believe that the Attorney-General would do till in his
power in behalf of the municipality
in thi- respect However. Mr. Bow-
Iser will communicate with the Board
at an early date in the matter when
tin Government's position in regard
to  the-  question  will be  stilted.
With the establishment of tin -1
trance to ihe- proposed tunnel which
will convey the line of the Canadian
Northern from ihe N'orth Arm to iln
False Creek terminals, in South Vancouver, ihe greatest asset to tin municipality  imaginable  would  result.
It i- considered that tin- companj
| would build freight terminals mi the
level lands tilling the river, tind tin
presence oi tit,- terminus of a transcontinental railway in South Vancou-
ver would immediately develop the
district ti- no other agency possibl)
could.
Mr. IIm.1-j-.iii outlined to the Provincial authorities tin- plan- for the
'Xorth Fraser Harbor ami explained
that the feeling ..f tin membi rs - I
tin- I'.eetinl was that if tin- terminals
could be secured in conjunction with
���!ii- development, it would scarcely
require  a  very  powerful  imagination
te.  compute   tin-   value  >��� r    such    to
South Vancouver.
It i- understood that the tunnel i-n-
trancc, ii placed in South Vancouver,
will l.e located near the- foot e.f Victoria Road, at ti pe.int. engineers be-
lieve, where the tunnel might inbuilt    aleeeiij     the     lilt.     of    llSt    p..S-i|)lc

Secretary William Kirkland
believes that tin remarkable
increase in school attendance
in the municipality is a splendid healthy sign from more
than  one  point -ef view.

Commissioners Hodgson, Abernelhy and Trites Get Down to Business
No Let Up To Activities of Edward Gold
Even Reeve Kerr is the Next Victim
After Temporarily Disabling Two Councillors, Humphries and Campbell,
Kerr Next on List
It was stated Thursday at the
Municipal Hall that the aggressive
Edward Gold had served notice on
Reeve James A Kerr that he vvas
disqualified from further serving on
the Municipal Council. Mr. Geeld's
statement i.s tbat thc Reeve has effected a breach of lhe Act by possessing himself of a permanent office at
the Municipal Hall and conducting
thcreform more eer less of a private
business.
Reeve Kerr was not available to
either confirm or deny the rumor. Mr.
'���"bl stated emphatically that such
was the case and that the Reeve was
consequently disqualified.
In just what situation Councillors
Humphries and Campbell tind themselves is hatd tei explain. Councillor
Campbell, if disqualified as alleged,
will immediately run again in his own
wtird and will undoubtedly be reelected. Possibly Mr. Humphries will
do  the  same.
Since the fact e.f Councillor Thomas's attempt to have a municipal account paid twice was mentioned in
these columns that gentleman has
been busy explaining the matter at
various meetings throughout the district and denies any dishonest intent.
That $20,000 Inquiry
After giving up $20,000 for a Government Audit, the people ol
South Vancouver hoped that the Municipality would be placed forthwith on a better business basis.
It was calculated that a complete house-cleaning would be the
means of giving South Vancouver a new lease of life.
Conditions in South Vancouver are worse today 'nan they have
been for some time. Undoubtedly, the administration of the district
has not improved.
And in the meantime the Government Auditor's report is being
strangled to death over at Victoria. Probably for the purpose of defending his own henchmen. Attorney-General Bowser refuses to pub
lish the full report of the lengthy enquiry.
During the past year or so, the Provincial Government has appointed many commissions to enquire into many different subjects.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been devoted to this policy.
Has anyone ever read the report of a single one of these expensive commissions? What happens to these reports when they are
rendered?
The people of South Vancouver should take strenuous methods
to secure the $20,000 report. Commissioner Crehan wes very searching in his efforts at the Municipal Hall. Doubtless there is much in
that report that would make most interesting reading.
The ratepayers paid their $20,000 for the investigation. Beyond
the fact that the Commissioner introduced a modern system of bookkeeping at the Municipal Hall. South Vancouver has received no
benefit so far for the big expenditure.

Deputy Hunter Will See North Arm
Mr. J. B. Hunter. Deputy Minister
.if Public Works, lirst lieutenant to
the Honourable Robert Rogers, i.- .en
the coast, and Mr. R. C. Hodgson,
with customary attention to the welfare of the district, will pilot Mr.
Hunter down the Fraser River and
show him what South Vancouver has
in  the  way  of  harbor  prospects.
Mr. Hunter, by the way, will likely meet an old friend in Mr. Robert
Abcrnethy,  recently appointed  to the
N'orth Arm lltirbeir Commission. The
deputy minister was born in Woodstock, (Inl., a few miles distant from
the farm upon which "Bob" Aber-
nethy lirst saw thc light. If Mr.
Abcrnethy possesses very much in
lhe way of education, he likely re-
eciveel it under the watchful eye .if
Mr. Hunter'- father, win. was Principal Hunter of the Woodstock Collegiate Institute, in his time .-in- of
the leading educationists in  Ontario.
Board of Control System for District
Receives Support of Many Ratepayers
Councillor Dickinson Thinks New System Will Solve Many of Municipality's
Present Ills
Tin- comptrollers would be- given
a salary in pr. portion to the nature
"t their duties tnul would have geneva! supervision uver tin- entire municipality subject to the council. They
would, in other words, he the experts who wmil.l advise and direct
the  cmnu-il  in  all  its  actions.
It seems that under the present
system of things little pettinesses
take up more of th. time of the council than matters of serious Import
There doesn't seem t,> be any harmony among the present members
"t the council, and not an excess of
business anil administrative ability.
A bylaw will be submitted within a
short time, no doubt, to inaugurate
the   Board   of   Control   system
Thc 1'...an! of Control system as
1 aelve.cate-d by the councillor for Cedar Cottage district is receiving general endorsement throughout tin- eli--
trict, the first organization tee ��-
pro- support .if it being thc Ratepayer-' Association eef Ward Three.
Present plans are that the new
board should he made up of three
men and the Reeve. These three persons would be known as comptrollers and Would he elected from the
municipality tn large, every ward having ti  voice  iii  their  election.
In this board would be reposed tin
responsibility of spending all tin-
money, subject, of course, to the
regulation of the Municipal council
which   w.iuld  remain   as   it   is. SATURDAY, AUGUST 30, \'M3

sought   to  prevent   those  conditions,
the government stands  idly by���and
even assists the owners te. defeat tin-
tends   of justice.     It   is   ever  thus,
Newspapers which picture with all
seriousness  the  morbid  details  of  a
pit  disaster  where  at  eme  fell  Stroke
| hundreds  of wives  and  children  are
deprived   of   their   support,   cater   to
the same morbid feeling when they
seek to sluuv the hardships of tlu-
"strikebreakers" who willingly go in
to defeat the ends of the workers
who are striving to establish a more
humane system. The attitude the government press has taken up on the
question  is deplorable.
The "soldiers" have been landed
there ostensibly to establish law and
order and one of the latest moves of
those in command has been to pass
a cen-.oi-.hip over all news matter
rtaining to their movements. This
is a very dangerous move and one
which  has grave perils.
A mass meeting was held in the
Arena last Thursday under the auspices of the B, C. Federation of Labeir io protest against the government's attitude on the question. Tin-
various   speaker-  denounced   the   gov-

ihey had acted and called the attention of unionists to the use the milia-

despatch in a government organ two
officers left the Island the next morning to take legal advice as to the
prosecution of the speakers for "high
treason." Is this Russia? At least we
can hardly think it is British Columbia in the Dominion of Canada, in the
Hritish Empire. Verily this is autocracy in its worst form.
At the meeting last Thursday a
resolution ,was passed calling on the
various unions t'i discipline iheir
members who arc members of the
militia. '.his will surely be a vital
question at all union meetings in the
future and this act of the B, C. governmenl is likely t.e act in the nature

CAVALRY AND GATLING GUNS
Till-, employees on the Paris underground railnead had
a strike and have settled their strike.
The terms of the settlement amaze the outside world,
The terms are especially amazing to lhe British Columbians���and well they may be.
Thc employees of thc underground railroad in Paris
are Government employees.
Their strike inconvenienced tbe public, and even the
radical French people were annoyed with the strikers.
In other European countries and in this country, as the
news reports very truly say, the strike of those Government employees would have been dealt with very summarily. Three engines of civilization would have been brought
into play effectively.
"First the police, second the cavalry, third Catling
guns."
But the police, the cavalry and guns were tried on the
French people long ago, and the little matter was fought
out and settled. The men who govern France know that
at a certain stage in the proceedings a courageous people
will not stand Catling guns, cavalry or police. They have
found out in France that the way to deal with striking
workmen is just the way the Government official would
like I., be dealt with himself if lie were a striking workman Instead of a well-paid public officer.
The striking men complained that their day's work was
t.... long ami their pay too small. The pay was increased
and the day shortened���which was perfectly right.
The young men employed on llle road arc compelled
t.. el., twenty days' work in the army each year. Their
wages are paid while they are doing this compulsory military weerk���which is perfectly right,
If a man is ill through nn fault or vice of his own lie
gets his pay as long as lie is ill up to three hundred and
sixty-live .lays, and thc company in whose service he lias
become ill pays his doctor's bill, his drug store bill and any
extra expenses involved���which is perfectly just and fair.
No striker is tei be dismissed because of having taken
part in llie strike. A benefit fund is provided for the employees of this Government enterprise���and the company
pays the membership sitb.scriptie.il to the benefit fund
wilh no deduction from the workmen's pay.
The above seems a horrible narrative to the energetic
British Columbian exploiter of labor.
It would have seemed very stupid, i,, fact quite incomprehensible, to the French Government at any time before
the Revolution,
But the Revolution taught France and some 'ether people that a natieen. like any either structure, is insecure when
its foundation is agitated. The foundation of a nation
is the enormous mass of working people, and that foundation the French have learned to respect and treat well,
We shall learn a> much here some day. Let us hope
we shall learn it more peaceably than the French did.
and few are belter fitted to act upon such a board as thc
N'e.nh Fras.r Harbor Commission.
Mr Abernethy has always possessed great faith in the
possibilities of the North Arm. anel lie i- particularly well
qualified i" assist in the direction of transforming 11 >i ���
fresh water stream int.. a harbor of world importance.
Mi. Robert Abernethy is not more than forty y< in ol
age and is reputed I., bc very wealthy. Ile was bom i"
Wesl /..na Township, near Embro, Ontario, and is one
of tlu   scores of >��� ��� 1111j_; men  from that neighborh 1 i"
achieve fain.- and success throughout ibe world
Wuli ihe appointment of Mr. Abernethy, ilu N'orth
Fraser Harbor Commission is now completed, the other
commissioners being Mr R C. Hodgson ami Mr. F. \
Tuie- According t" a statement bj the Hon, Robert
Rogers, Minister of Public Works, the sum of $200,000
will immediately be turned over lee lhe DJorth fraser Harbor Commission 1.. begin work will.. Plans are alrcv.h
being made for constructing piers, jetties and beginning
dredging operations, and all the machinery seems to have
been set in motion te. successfully carry out the work
e.f developing a national fresh water port fronting feer live
and a half miles upon the Municipality of South Vancouver.
INEFFICIENCY
IT is unfortunate that from the great army of lawyers
ihiing business in British Columbia that the South
Vancouver council should select a man for the position
of municipal solicitor whose deportment in court should
be described by Mr. Justice Morrison as both childish and
insulting.
Last week's incident when the council endeavored to
have set aside an injunction got out be prevent a start
being made on paving operations on Main and Fraser
streets is only one more blow to the municipality. It
seems incredible that a body of supposed business men
should go into court trusting a very important case to
the hands of a barrister of bo questionable ability.
It is the same old story. Inefficiency, A municipality
of 40,000 people is held up to ridicule of thc world because a cheaply paid employee blunders.
AN OMINOUS OUTLOOK
NEVER since lhe days of Lord Elgin have there been
conditions in Canada to equal the se existing in
Briti-h Columbia al the presenl moment. Newspaper
reports censored by military officers say that the Hon.
W. J. Bowser, Attorney-General of Hritish Columbia, is
constantly surrounded by detectives, who are shielding
him from irresponsible union men who have designs upon
his life. Mr. Bowser is blamed by the working men of
the Island foi allowing llie germs of anarchy to mature
in the coal regions.
It has been stated thai Sir Richard McBride and Hon.
W. J. Bowser arc among the men interested in certain
companies .,veiling coal mines near Nanaimo, and it i- now
claimed in many e|iiarHrs that on thi- account the Provincial Government refused to interfere in the- strike at
that peri.eel when a little attention to duty on the pari of
the premier and attorney-general might have adjusted
matters peacefully and satisfactory to all parties.
In llie meantime, more soldiers are being rushed int..
the trouble tone. There is as big an army in thc field as
that which, one hundred years ago, defended Canada from
the Invasion of the military of the United  States.
Now that order has been brought about in the coal
belt, fair minded people in Vancouver are asking why it
is necessary to draft further soldiery fe.r strike duly.
Of the men who have been called away during this week,
the majority arc employees of business houses in the
city, Their absence means a distinct loss to themselves
and a severe inconvenience to their employers. Any firm
refusing to allow employees who arc members of the
militia to go on duty are liable to be taken up on a charge
of treason.
Things arc coming to a pretty pass in British Columbia.
Only the fact that wc have a northern climate and that our
citizens are largely of a northern temperament saves
British Columbia at the present time from Mexican anarchy and revolution.
FINE CHIVALRY, THIS
AT thc South V..nc.viver police court the other day.
a Mrs. Cassidy was charged by thc British Columbia
Medical Association with violating thc statutes protecting the medical men of ibis province by assisting certain
mothers in hcr neighborhood at more or less delicate
moments in their lives. The doeers of the court room
wcre open and the usual number of back benchers were
on hand to loaf away the hours. Appearing for the Medical Association was a stripling lawyer, and thc chief witness for the prosecution was a thick-necked detective
employed by lhe association.
Eight weemen. with babes in arms, were een hand te.
give evidence and tell the whole details of the circumstances thai led lo their employment e.f Mrs. Cassidy,
anil to relate certain facts regarding a function usually
in civilized communities considered most sacred. In bis
examinations e.f the witnesses, the yuung lawyer chap
mad. a poor job eef endeavoring to remove brutality from
his task, and from time t'e lime, he was prompted in rough
whispers by the big detective.
During these vulgar proceedings, a young lady employed at the municipal hall, performed the embarrassing
task of court stenographer. The curious spectators
snickered from lime t" time as lhe women gave their
testimony, A professional Investigation in a livery stable
would have been handled with less coarseness.
A GREAT JOURNALIST'S COMMENT
BKlT'l SI I Columbia's Oriental problems have come to
the attention of the ed'.teer of that ureal journal, "The
Saturday livening Post," wheisc comment upon the question is as. follows:
"It is meist unfortunate that the fertile fruit anel truck-
farms of interior British Columbia have begun to develop
the racial troubles that have so long been acute in the
cities of the Coast," observes the Toronto Globe.
"Orientals have been taking up those fruit farms and���
as usual���doing uncommonly well with them. As is generally lhe case, fruit growers can prosper only by marketing their products through cooperative associations. White
farmers apparently are not seeking to prevent Orientals
from owning land, but are merely excluding them frmn
the associations through which alone the fruit can be
profitably marketed. I am a naturalized liritish subject
ami 1 wish to farm,' complains Mr. Wo Sing; 'but if I
cannot sell what I raise, then what is the use of my work?'
"Thc Globe thinks 'the real trouble with the Chinese
is that, though they earn as much as the whites, they are
p..eer spenders. Instead of living on lhe same scale as
tin Occidentals, they hoard Iheir profits.' But this view,
we are sure, is quite mistaken, If Ihe Asiatics spent lavishly the whites would exclude them on the ground of
ih.-ir demoralizing extravagance. If conditions were re-
nerst '1 llie Chinese would exclude lhe whiles on llle ground i
that  they were low, improvident, immoral persons."

THE HIGH-GRADER'S CORNER
NORTH  FRASER  HARBOR
IN selecting Mr. Robert Abernethy as the third member
for the North Fraser Harbor Commission, the Dominion authorities have made a decidedly happy choice. Mr.
Abernethy has lived on the coast for twenty years and
during thc whole of the time has been identified with
lumbering and manufacturing in Greater Vancouver. Until
recently, with the Mayor of Port Moody, Mr. P. D. Roe,
Mr. Abernethy owned a lumber mill at the head of Burrard Inlet, one of the largest in the world. He still owns
a controlling interest in the large holdings of the Ebume
Lumber Company at Eburne Station, on the North Arm
of the Fraser.
Few   laymen   are   better   acquainted   with   the   harbor
needs of Greater Vancouver than Mr. Robert Abernethy.

could act as well as sing. It went
all right till he went to turn the music
back lo begin the second verse, when
he tore the leaves, became excited,
and said in a hurried undertone to
the teacher: "Play something, for
heaven's sake, until I get these leaves
straight." The teacher played bravely away, "Diddle dc dump, de diddle
de dump," till at last Fred found the
place, lamely finished the song, and
got away to his seat to be roasted by
his family. A long, lanky, slow-moving Swede and his brisk, perky little
wile were called upon to sing. Slowly producing a diminutive bymnbook
from his pocket, Olaf found the place,
and gave the book to the organist.
But a difficulty arose, and a babel of
Scandinavian dialect ended ill the
little woman being summarily sent
to her scat by her lord and master.
The Chairman intervened, and Olaf
explained : "She haf neet got her

Thc litlle woman smilingly took her
place once again, and they warbled
twenty verses or so, Olaf leaning
over the organ and Mrs. Olaf peeking over his shoulder whenever she
could get a chance tei do so, and
singing lustily. Later on an bTd
Dutch gentleman, small of statute

about twenty-seven verses, telling of

At a large social function, where'

wait feer a formal   presentation   ��<i
eetber.s. It is taken feir granted that a
hostess would met invite any person
te, her hemic who weiuld he undesirable, The presence under a reietf is
sufficient greeund feer a polite exchange-
of courtesy. This custom is especially observed in England, In some
eef emr Canadian cities, however, a
more strict formality is the rule.

In the case eif persons possessing
nu seecial e,r preifessiiinal title, the affix of Esquire follows the name; for

Mr. Smith, in the latter, Captain
Smith, Major Smith, Colonel Smith,
though a Lieutenant in the Army is
addressed John Smith. Esquire. In
the Navy, the form e,f address is
slightly different; a cadet at the

Cadet John Jones, R.N'., and later on
Lieutenant J. Jones, R.X., Commander J. Jones, R.X., and so on, until
he reaches Admiral Sir John Jones,

A doctor of medicine is often addressed as Dr. John Brown, but preferably his name sheiuld be written
J. Brown, Esq., M.D. A doctor of
theology can be addressed the Rev.
Dr. Brown, while in the case of doctors of law, the titles are omitted altogether.
Law titles are never used socially;
when writing tn a judge, unless professionally, he is addressed hy his

his Honor or Mr. Justice So-and-So,
but merely Esq., or Sir John  Black.
Mayors and Lord Mayors are addressed the Mayeir of Montreal, the
Lord Mayor of London, the Right

Rise in Cost of Women's Attire
With the advance cost of high living the price of women's attire has
constantly soared, and this seasnn
it undoubtedly outruns that of any
other season feir many years. This
statement refers chiefly to the fashionable woman's wardrobe. The
negligees worn today by women of
fashion cost more than the Empress
Eugenie's best gown when she was
on the throne of France.
"Why, when I was upon the throne
of France, 1 never paid nmre than
$120 for a gown, and I was called extravagant," remarked tbe Empress
when she heard how much the fashionable gowns cost, during her visit
to Paris. Napoleon directed Eugenic

The New Baby's Outfit
Many New and Dainty Novelties
and Necessary Articles Quite
Indispensable to Every Mother
and Nurse
Besides llle dainty wardrobe made
ready feer llie new baby, bis outfit is
really incomplete in these days unless it includes alsee some eet the
things   tbat  make   il   easier   feer  nurse
eer mother in care for bis comfort,
Since nothing can ever be Inn
dainty or too beautiful or tun expensive tn prepare Inr tbe advent of the
wonderful personage, one may bc for-
given for expatiating at length upem
ilu- many fairy-like items which gee
in the- furnishing '���! tbe present-day
layette. Tin- loftesl of silks, the
finest 'et lawns ami muslins, iln inn -i
of lace ami embroidery must he requisitioned in fashion the liny gai
iiicuis, in conjunction with infinitesimal   links   anel   llie   uin-t   delicate   'el
stitchery. Every layette- should include a bassinet nr col anel a baby
basket, in addition i" iln- various articles necessary i" baby's wardrobe,
anil lhe- former, whether it he col e.r
cradle, should be supplied wilh a hair
mattress, a down pillow, ibe whitesl
nf liny blankets beiiind with ribbon
tn   match   the   general   color   scheme-,
ami a tiny eiderdown quill i" harmonize. Sheets and pillow e-ascs may
be eilhcr frilled 'er lace-edged, hut in,
embroidery should be employed, lest
it chafe lhe delicate, soft cheek of Mutiny sleeper.
The trimmings of these cosy little
nests may he either eef soft satin, silk
nr muslin. An all white cut is always
ill  favor, but just at  present there  is
a distinct inclination tn depart from
the orthodox blue of pale green and
delicate yellow, while in senile cases.
where mauve and purple is llle color
scheme 'ef the bedroom, a dainty j
mauve would be employed; another
new departure being the French combination <<i pale blue and pink.
For  Ordinary Wear
For ordinary wear, little slips have
alineest entirely superseded the more
elaborate robes, and these may In-
very simple nr bc adorned with lace-
and insertion. The finest nf nainsook and tbe must delicate of Valenciennes lace arc employed for the
fashioning eif these little garments,
all the models being built with square
ynkes and long sleeves. Silk goes to
the fashioning eif the christening robe
anil the robes which arc tn grace
oilier important occasions, and these
may he made as beautiful as possible
with hand embroidery, lace insertion
and line hand-made tucks. The little night robes are gathered intn a
band at the waist, and slinuld be made
of line cambric and may be trimmed
with lace or line embroidery in such
a way that the litlle wearer is not
hampered   thereby.
Baby Baskets are Legion
Baby baskets are shewn in a variety of pretty styles. They range
from the simple though convenient
folding basket, to the elaborately he-
ribboned and lace trimmed hamper.
The contents of the hamper or basket must, of course, include a powder box, puff, brush and comb, soap
case, and the necessary cases feu-
safety pins, needles, cotton, etc. In
thc choice of these accessories thc
mother may he guided hy her pocket-
book, for there are charming little
things to be had at all prices.
Dryers and stretchers for the tiny
shirts and stockings make it easier
to slip these little things over tbe
tender skin nf King Baby, and the
new hibs, wilh a belt to hold thein
flat, preclude the danger of baby's
pulling loose the pin fastener.
The little stand with wheels makes
it possible lo move the bassinet about
comfortably. Other things inumer-
able have been contrived, in the way
of brittle racks and little wash stands
and water heaters that would need
Columns feer adequate description.
Folding Tubs Convenient
The new portable folding rubber
bath-tub is an immense improvement
uver the little till nr porcelain tubs nf
bygone days that rested on ihe Boor
eer chairs, and made il necessary for
lhe nurse nr mother tn bend in a
most uncomfortable position while
bathing lln- baby. With a tub at the
level of the new portable affairs one
i.s infinitely more comfortable, and her
hold upon ilu- squirming little body
is much more secure. Young mothers, giving baby his balh Inr ilu- lirsl
time, also find this kind nf mli less
terrifying. The litlle towel rack,
fastened al the siele. is an added convenience. Ami the tub may be folded Hal and packed into a trunk.
Il is ..ne ..I the nuist difficult things

\ i-it    to      lln       Maritime      Proi ine e -.
where ihe movement has been most
cordially received. In New Brunswick, nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island -ireeiiK' Provincial Committees are being formed, and there
is every indication of ;i large and
growing interest.
I am leaving at the end of this
week for Manitoba, Saskatchewan,
Alberta and Uriiish Columbia, with
a view ie. considerably enlarging the
membership of the Association, and
securing the active co-operation of
the Provincial Governments, and the
leading professional and business men
in the I'enir Western Provinces, As
this celebration will be more than a
mere gathering and demonstration,
we desire to secure the assistance of
the Educational Authorities, Churches, National Societies, Women's Organizations, and l.alner Unions, and
I hope in confer with the leaders in
many of these directions.
Iii aileliiiein in the Canadian Association there are two others al weirk.
one in the United Slates and e,ne in
Greal Britain, both of which have cx-
tensive programmes, Sir Edmund
Walker is president of the Canadian
Association, Mr. Andrew Carnegie
chairman of the American, and the
Rt. Hon. Karl Grey, late Governor-
General e.f Canada, chairman "i the
British Committee.

i Irganizing Secretary.
Editor "Chinook" :
Sir.���We were discussing ihis matter at supper the other evening (whal
we hael tn eat ihe,, not matter much)
ami I was rather fed up with it all
and felt a little drowsy when who
should suddenly come in but Ilis
Le irdship, the Bishop, himself. I was
ni i -ei very surprised myself, but my
friends very soon di,erectly vanished, enabling the Bishop al once to
come te. ilu' poinl of his visit.
"Your application t". >r the posi of
archdeacon," he said, "came too late���
but," and his Lordship laid hi* hand
��� 'ii my arm to emphas;ze the look ��� if
estness in his -'ace-���"1 want ye >u

���veil."
"You have hael. Mr. Williams, I
know, the priceless privilege of "it
more than one occasion taking pari
in what my great colleagues, the 1. ird
Bishop "i Londi n, has di scribed as
those marvellous missions of Father
Couran, S.S.T.I-'... in parts of London, and I cam you to undertake a
similar thing here," said the  Bishop.
I was astounded naturally enough.
"My Lord," I said, "I am nol a priesl
at all, only a humble working man.
a mere tailor. Yem know that his
success is due t" the- knowledge and
insight of man which he in common
with the Catholic priest���who act up
i.e their calling gain in the practice
and use' of the confessional."
" Phat," replied the bishop," is just
what 1 am comming to. Ye.n have'
had some years experience' as a tailor,
confined exclusively to parsons (and
a few Bishops, 1 timidly ventured t"
add). Yes, exactly so���exactly so, and
it is for thai reason I have conn to
you. I want in this diocese before
anything else, a mission to the clergj
anil  Thein  are  lhe  man."
1   replied  brlefly���H  ii    was    his
Lordship', wish���it wa, my duty, anil
"whatever   a    priest    knows   through
the confessional ����� t human nature  is,"
I  -aid. "nothing compared t" what a
tailor knows of the priest" hut  1" ��el
to details,
"The mission," said his Lordship,
"hael better lu preceded ley a 'quiet
day." Bul I hastened to assure him
it    were   impossible   when   once   the
clergy of this diocese  realized   whai
was  going  to  happen    thej     would
never have a quiet day or night either
! till it was all over,
Choice of hymns    was    discussed.
"There   were   ninety   and   nine"     was
tirst  suggested,  but,  as   1   remarked,
there  are  only  fifty-four  in   the  ��11��� ������
cese. we decided t<��� dispense with it
"We've   no   time   to   lose."   saiel   the
Bishop. "Get a hustle on." And seizing  me by  the  collar  hc  threw  me
lover his  head and   I   found  myself in
1 the pulpit of Christ  Church.     Feeling
perhaps a little nervous as to how  to
begin,    however,    strange    t"   say.   a
bible lay eipcn in  front  of me, and  1
j geet busy at once.
I   shall   not   weary   yeeu.   of   course.
with   any   verbatim   account     of     my
sermons; they wcre based "ii the mes-
j sages to  the  seven  churches.
"Angel here," I said, "means Bis-
| hop"���but a voice interrupted me.
Bishop doesn't always mean angel."
This however didn't disconcert me in
tbe least and 1 continued my discttrse.
"Ephesus, Smyrna, etc., we can pass

was  path' tic   tie  watch   iheir    \ ���   rt
broken   grief   when   in   reply   te.   ihe
question,   il   thej    used     "all     faith-
nil  diligi ncc' drive    av, ay    all
-���iange  doctrini %," etc.    Thi j   sadly
admitted   "They   had   been   driving   it
unto them."   I ��� onsoled them a- best
I  could an.l  l  implored them :������ re
turn   t"  their   colleges   ami   "T'i   min-;
ister   ihe   doctrines   ami   sacraments
ami  ihe  discipline  of  Christ  as   the
, Leerel  had  commanded" e.r  turn  it  up I
altogether.
The niissieeii resolutions were pathetic in their simplicity. The Bishop
resolved  to  have'  a  solemn  requiem
leach month for ihe faithful departed;
i other clergy resolved t" "bey ihe explicit   orelers   and   directions     of     thej
Book  of  Common   Prayer.    Candles
will now be feeiind on every altar and i
the   proper   vestments   used     in     the

I solved to follow the proper table of

The collection was devoted to procuring a cope and mitre for the bishop .anel a processional crucifix for
Chrisl Church. A very line statue
eef Our Laely already adorned the side
chapel, I  noticed.

Kisses  Which   Led  to   Fatal   Results
Students fi the art of kissing are
familiar wiih the steiry tis to how
thc beautiful Duchess fi Gordon
founded and raised the t*���.,i<]��� en llinh-
l.itiili'i- by rew irding each recruit
with .' guinea in gold and a ki-- from
lu'r lips. The Gordons pai'l dearly
for ihe' kiss they thus received, feer
they wire- -"..n senl te> fighl the
French, and in their firsl engagement
300 of them fell, killed and wounded.
In tlu year 1703 a st"U'ti ki<s was
the means of bringing abemt a bloody
anel expensive war. Ferdinand oi
Bavaria was journeying inti. a neighboring State. One day during his
journey he visited the Royal household of a neighbor, and while wan-
dering around in the spacious park
that surrounded the palace he espied
ti beautiful maiden under a wide-
spreading tree close at hand. He
was sei bewitched with her beauty and (
charming personality that he impulsively implanted a kiss on her fair
and lovely cheek.
She was a princess of the Royal
Family, but the Bavarian prince did
neit kneew it: neither did he know that
she was an affianced bride and that
the bridegroom-elect was near by and
saw thc whole affair. There were hot
words and blows. A duel was fought,
and both principals were almost fatally wounded. Diplomatic relations
between the two petty kingdoms were
suspended, and a King and bloody war
ensued. The stolen kiss was paid for
most dearly in blood and treasure.
A few years ago a negro kissed a
white waitress in a restaurant in a
little town near Salt Lake City, Utah.
The lookers-on were indignant, and
very soon there was a mob, and a
race war ensued. Thirty-six white
men were killed and wounded, and
over eighty negroes met the same
fate.

Aii interesting addition to the international contests of the year
sheiuld develop in the coming American lenir nf the famous Incognitl
Cricket Club of London. This organization of amateur cricketers holds
a unique position in the cricket circle* nf England, Composed exclusively nf gentlemen players, the club
was founded in 1X61 with a membership originally fixed at Kill, raised tn
ISO in 1869. increased to 175 in 1871.
and now limited tn 300 members.
There is a large waiting list eif applicants for membership, for the ln-
ceigniti Club is a social as well as
cricket club. The members do nol
play for gate money, and are paying
their own expense., during the I'eur
of   the   United   Stales   anil   Canada.
The schedule as arranged at present calls for five matches, four to be
played in the Easl and one in Canada.
Tbe dates are as follows : September a-6-8, Gentlemen 'if Philadelphia

N'eev v.irk Veterans at Livingston,

all Ihe troops from the city KniiiK out
in turn to enjoy lhe experience "I two
weeks spent ill the open. A record of

Id reveals , many interesting incidents. The' pitching of the tents upon their arrival at the island, when
assistance was lent by the Hoys Brigade, whei were camped near, the lirst
I meal spread on Ihe grass before they
I hail erected tables, the unreliable experiment! in carpentering, which resulted, mi the part of the table seats,
in a tendency to lip over when nicely
filled with rows of hungry girls, and
lhe invasion of lhe camp with inquisitive cows in the absence of tbe Guides
from camp and the havoc which they
wrought, all make interesting reading. The record reveals thc spirit of
tbe camp t" be one of sturdy enjoyment, mixed wilh practical helpfulness In lhe girls in teaching them

Colors for Red-haired Women
If weemen wilh red hair would only
study how to use it becomingly, they
would be proud of the distinction ol"
having it, instead of dissatisfied with
their late.
There seems to be a general impression among women wilh red hair that
almost any shade of blue ean be worn
by them, because, as a usual thing,
they have fair and delicate complexions. But, as a matter of fact, it is
tiie one culiir above all others that
they ought lo avoid. Thc contrast
is too violent, and the combination
i- nol harmonious. The shades most
suitable to he worn with red hair are
bright sunny browns, and all autumn-
leaf tinti, After these may bc selected pale or very dark green���but never
a  bright  green���pale    yellow,    and
black Unmixed with any either color.
Solid colors are always more becoming  te> red-haired    people    than
mixed, the mixed colors nearly always give' a nu ne' or less ,|, eii dy appearance. In facl. reel hair is usually
so brilliant and decided thai it musl
bc met mi its own ground, and no
vague undecided sort of things should
be worn with it.
The best gifts we get arc from
tin.se- who have nothing but themselves to give us.

Often death comes after a protracted illness with
its many unavoidable expenses and when economy
should commence, extravagance begins���the result
is that helpless wives and children are deprived of
the necessities of life because of these follies.
UNFORTUNATELY THOSE WHO ENCOURAGE AND PROFIT BY THIS UNNATURAL
CUSTOM ARE NOT THE ONES WHO SUFFER
FROM   IT.
A funeral is essentially a family matter and because of this simplicity and privacy should prevail.
Sincere grief is retiring and not comforted by extravagance and show. Flattery cannot soothe the
ear of Death and a funeral conducted with all the
vanity one ean devise adds nothing to the memory
of the dead.   One kindly act in life outlasts them all.
Death is solemn and impressive, but its impres-
siveness is not added to by extravagance���the most
sincere tribute to those whose eyes are closed and
voices silent, is love and fidelity to their memory. T^��J
