No Dearth of Candidates for Forthcoming Political Fighti in
South Vancouver
Never in the history e.f South Vancouver have public affairs received the
attention being given them today.
The business quiet, the forced idleness of many working men, the financial situatieeii brought tee a bead by
the war and the unusual economic
situation generally, are combining to
develop in the back of the heael of the
average citizen a new system 'if brain
ceil*
In the municipality of South Vancouver many are already beginning tee
disc-lift candidates feir the reeveship
and for the municipal council. Also
in the municipality, tbe question eef
representation in the local house and
possible candidates are being mentioned. South Vancouver, with Point
Grey, will have separate representation in the Dominion Parliament, and
the likelih ! of an early election is
bringing the Dominion situation to
the attention of the peeeple.
Reeve Kerr will likely be a candidate for the 1915 reeveship. While
he has n,.t maele any announcement,
the possibility of the confidence shown
in him when the people elected him
at the last bye-election will likely have
a bearing upon his return tee the lists
for the endorsement of the people
once more. Againsl the Reeve, such
candidates arc being mentioned as
Councillor Robert Rutledge of Collingwood. Mr. Gold, also, will be
heard freun in, doubt, though his
friends say that lie- is nol anxious I"
compete for the chief magistracy.
Again, Councillor Millar is being mentioned as a possible candidate. Those

Lewis immediately tones il down by

efdate for nomination. Mr. G. G. McGeer is nne of tlie better known of the
off and in the meantime many friends
arc urging lii*n to make a campaign
for the reeveship. il is stated that a
dark heerse may be sprung at the right
moment by the large land companies
in Vancouver, who believe that their
especial interests in the municipality
sheiuld be well guarded and thai the
tax rate sh"tild be kept down to the
minimum in their behalf.

Though Mr. Burgess is being men-

Cedar Cottage Snapshots
An Interesting meeting of last week
was the Third Annual Convention of
the Vancouver East District of the
Women's Missionary Society, held on
November 12, in Robson Memorial
Church, when an all-day program was
enjoyed by a large and appreciative
audience. During the morning ses-
sinii, in addition to the reading of the

Knight, and reports from various auxiliaries, and the District Organizer,
Mrs. B. II. 11.dines, there were interesting addresses by Rev. J. 0. Brown.

Liberalism Active
Though there seems to be i strong
feeling that Snuth Vancouver should
be represented in the House of Commons by a Semth Vancouver man.
there is some likelihood of Point Grey
and Vancouver taking a hand in the
bringing t" the front of a candidate.
Mr. Eugene Cleveland, of Collingwood
East, is an active Liberal worker and
has been mentioned freely in connection with the Liberal nomination. Mr.
I ll. Ingram, of Shaughnessy Heigh'-.
an oldtimer from Brandon, has also
been mentioned, Mr. Ralph Smith.
ex-M.P., has many friends throughout  the  district,     lie  resides   in   I'nint
Grey. The Hon. Joseph Martin, always t" the front, has been spoken
nf as a possible candidate in Vancouver South. He- has a large following
in the municipality. Mr. George li.
McCrossan, who has been referred to
r,~ a man of democratic principles,
would accept a nomination it is stated.
He is a Shaughnessy man. Others
whose names have been mentioned al
this time In connection with a Lib -
al nomination are Messrs. George '������'..
Macdonald, F. K. McD Russell, I C

Take Lewis's latesl effm-t at misleading the public. He says "$587,-
000 have been spenl by our council
this  year  in  gin   work  to 350 men,
which is the average number of men
who have be ei ite dilj employed in
the various wards and by contractors.
350 men drawing $3 each a day would
have drawn in salaries up to the end
of October $226,800. Thus $360,200,
! claim, has been practically wasted,
excepting of course, whal has gone in
material and officials' salaries, say
$122,000. I claim thai the council by
ii- contracting methods have practically wasted nearly $140,000." Thi
suggestion is, of coun it thi   con
tractors  have- made $140,000 profit  "Ut
of  the  municipality.
*   *   *
Now, if friend Leui- ���-. ish d I publish the truth as t" the amounl paid
in wages, the number of men employed, and llu- amount spent for material,
the- correct figures eould easily have
been obtained al thc municipal hall,
at lea-t in regard to direct expenditure
by tin council But, no! The i xact
��� - would ii"i be striking enough
for friend l.e-ivis; so he publishes
sei of ficticious figures anel then exclaims: "Read this oul lottd���One
Hundred and Forty Tflousarfd Cellars!" ii Inch he claims has bei n wasted. And he' asks, "Is it nol time for
the people to be up and doing?" li
certainly i- time that people, who believe in Lewi-'- ficticious figures anel
misleading statements, ascertain the
truth for themselves. Then they will
give- even the Voters' League councillors a   fair deal.
When you mention Warel Seven.
you mention the name of Mr. W. J.
Allen, who has gained favor in the
ward since la-t election through energetic efforts for the betterment of
conditions in that portion of the'
Southern Slnpe-. Councillor Twiddj

That friend Lewis either does nut
knnw whal he is talking about or else
is deliberately irying to mislead the
publii- is proved by the quarterly
statement issued by the municipal
auditor two week- ago. The auditor
reported that up to September 30 the
wanl expenditure amounted to $135,-
610; waterworks extensions, $70,206;
and local impn cemenl work (paving
contracts) $381,686. From these official ligures it will be seen that of the

Another poinl which shows how
Lewis is hopelessly astraj in his slale-
ine-nis and is either ignorant of thc
facts trj ing ti   deceive,
is iiis allowance for mat'-ri.-ii anel ,,(finals' salaries. $122,000. eJov, if I.e .vis

About Machine Guns
Every daj in the newspapers there
crop up incidents dealing with the
effect 'if machine-gun lire, and an
enormous number of these weapons
arc  doing their deadly  work  today.
In the Hritish army the machine-
gun is the Maxim; the French use thc
Holchkiss, or Puteaux, Austrians employ the Schwarzlose, and Germans
the Maxim. In all cases machine-
guns are attached to the infantry forces, usually at thc proportion of two
guns per battalion, or 1,000 men.
These guns fire rifle cartridges at
immense speed by mechanical means,
and usually the kick, or recoil of the
gun is used for the purpose of reloading. It is interesting to note that
in a test of forty-two British first-
class shots engaged against a machine
gun. each firing at the same target for
one minute, the gun discharged 228
rounds and made sixty-nine hits; the
forty-two marksmen discharged 408
rounds and made  sixty-two hits.

Of
The Result of  Good Paving
One of the results of the Main
Street pavement is the daily appearance of a Ladner-Vancouver motor
wagon on Main Street. This lorry
comes in early in the day loaded with
hundreds of gallons of cream. The
���new pavement makes it possible to
ship the cream from the farms in the
Delta in this manner, to the convenience of buyer and producer and to
the economy, doubtless, of the ultimate consumer.

Upon harbor works and development
and, therefore, his opinion must carry
a great deal of weight in the consideration of any such scheme. His re-
peeri was in connection with the enor-
nieuis scheme of improvement planned by Seattle, and, although compiled in 1911, gives a complete answer
to every question that has been raised
during the discussion upon the North
Ann harbor scheme, and especially
to those raised at the two meetings of j ;���
tbe   Eburne   Ratepayers'   Association.
What a Harbor Will Do
lie' produces facts and figures to
show that up-to-date harbor facilities
are necessary if a community is to
prosper; that they stimulate and profile growth of the towns served;
and that communities even that did not
possess natural advantages, by building up harbor facilities have outstripped, and through their competition
have forced even cities possessing
natural advantages, but who had lagged behind in developing them, to expend enormous sums of money in
order to keep and to once more foster Iheir rapidly diminishing trade.
Antwerp occupies a position somewhat similar to that of Ihe North Arm
of the Fraser river, it.being on a
stream with a silt bottom. Since the
development of its harbor, Antwerp
has taken a wonderful leap forward
in importance, and has increased vastly both in population and in wealth.
We would draw special attention to
this part of the report, and would ask
:���Cannot the North Fraser communities take this as an example, and endeavor to rival Antwerp in its harbor
development?
The great lesson to be learned from
the report is that harbor facilities attract trade, population, and wealth;
that development follows the harbor;
that the business of a community demands such facilities, and if they are
not provided trade is lost, and that
backward community is left in the
background by its more progressive
neighbors.
In connection with the development
of the port of Seattle. Mr. Bogue lays
special emphasis upon the possibilities
of an enormous increase of trade
through the opening eef the Panama
Canal, and also eif the vast possibilities afforded by the opening up and
development of Alaska and the
Great North land, ihrough the construction of railway communicnti
through Hritish Columbia. All this
applies equally to this community, and
can lie taken as the very strongest
argument in supporl of the Xorth
Fraser scheme, added to which is the
business that will come as a resull
of the development of the rich hintcr-
l land of the Fraser valley, and the interior generally, including 'I'" Western Prairies.
We must look to the' future, and
the question is ivbetlnr ihis community will decide to go in for progress
and development, or to stand siill
while it allows its neighbors to snatch
from it lhe rich prize that has been
placed at ils doors by a hitielicient
Nature. The people themselves must
decide. Which is il lei he"

Progressive Spirit Needed
"Il is conceded by all that the development of Seattle into a greal metropolis, lies in a deliberate preparation to care for ber fair share of the
world's commerce, A study of the

city, having received municipal rights

habitants numbered over 400,000, or
seven per cent, of the entire population of Holland. From 1870 to 1898
Rotterdam expended $31,000,000 in
harbor construction and equipment
Its rapid growth is recognized as being directly due to the development
of its port.
"Hamburg, Antwerp and Rotterdam have all created opportunities.
They have thereby cut deeply into
the important trade, till then largely
monopolized or controlled by Lon-
de,n.
Great  British  Ports
"And London, grown sluggish with
the assurance bred by centuries of
monopoly in trade, has been forced
to arouse herself in order to contest
the competition, not only of continental ports, but of home ports as well.
Hritish ports, which lack the natural
opportunities of London, have expended large sums on harbor improvements
as follows : Liverpool, $200,000,000;
Manchester and Newcastle, $85,000,-
000 each;  Glasgow. $44,000,000.
"Manchester, determined to free
herself from all the tolls of Liverpool
and other ports, and from excessive
railway rates, proceeded under an act
of parliament, dated August 6th. 1885,
to organize a company to build the
Manchester canal. The people of the
entire city came to the support of the
ceempany and subscribed liberally.
Under the original law tbe funds provided amounted to.nearly $50,000,000,
but subsequently thc city furnished a
loan of $25,000,000. The canal was
not finished for traffic until November, 1899, and it was necessary for the
citv te, incur a new obligation of over
$5,000,000 to provide for interest. The
canal company is now paying interest on the issue of bonds and will
soon be paying off the city loan.

"To fully appreciate the importance
of the plans herewith submitted, it is
advisable that all public-spirited citizens consider the example of the older
ports and the ways by which they
have progressed.
"Hamburg is today the greatest
shipping centre in Continental Europe,
Its evolution is typical and remarkable. Through endowed with a rich
hinterland, there was much to discourage its port development; in fact,
it had to make its opportunity.
Great World Ports
"For sixty-three miles below Hamburg the river Elb is a silting stream
that requires constant dredging to
maintain a depth of twenty-six feet
at low tide, and. vet in trans-shipping
and storage business this port enjoys
advantages over all other ports of the
world. Its factories and warehouses
are served with hoth water and rail
transportation facilities, and are provided with elaborate handling and
labor-saving devices. In addition to
the sum of $100,000,000 said to have
been already expended on harbor improvements, it recently voted $50,000.-
000 to be expended on extensions
which shemld keep pace with the demand of its groving commerce and
industries.
Harbor Facilities Attract Trade
"To return from Europe tee America, it will bc found that from Montreal to Rio Janeiro and Rucnos Aires
there is everywhere manifest the recognition that, in order to participate
ot any extent in modern commerce, the
best harbor facilities must be constructed in advance of. and as an invitation   to,  trade.
"Montreal, eene thousand miles from
the open ocean, has become the leading summer peert. not emly for the export of Canadian but American grain.
Fourteen   millieeii   dollars   have     been
spenl  upon  the  development  <>f    its
porl  facilities, the greater part of Ihis
eluring the list five years. The exportation! of Montreal have increased from $25.1X10.1X10 to $71,000,000, in
fifteen years, ll has today twenty-
five steamship lines and is looking for
new one-, including a line to New
Zealand and Australia, notwithstanding the fact that il is closed feer five
months in the vear by the Ice ill the
Sl.  Lawrence  river.
Trade  Lost  by   Inadequate   Facilities
"Huston, with her wonderful natural harbor, was formerly among the
leading ports of the world. Hut channels sufficient for the crafts of former
times have long proved inadequate for
more modern requirements. Failure
tei recognize this fact and grasp the
opportunities provided by nature,
brought abemt sure results. Industries fell more and more into the
habit of depending upon railways for
coastwise trade instead of water transportation until Boston's waterways bc-
i came atrophied in their functions. All
this being in sharp contrast with the
development of European ports, and
with tne lessons taught by Hamburg,
Antwerp and Rotterdam. Massachusetts has at last partially awakened to
its requirements and formulated plans
for the improvement of existing conditions, and in this way to meet the
demands of the present and future.
"Following the appropriation of
$3,000,000 last year, the legislature of
Massachusetts, at ils session just ended, appropriated $9,000,000 more to
secure to Boston the initiation ot such
harbor improvements as changed conditions  will   demand.
"New York, even with all its preeminent natural advantages, has left
nothing to chance, and today a large
proportion of the waterfrontage of
Manhattan   Island   is   owned   by    K
the fairway and entrances thereto from
the sea. The work to be performed
by the Dock Department of New York
City will ultimately cost a great sum,
running as high as $70,(XX1,000 in
senile estimates, but definite ligures
are  not  yet  obtainable.
Famous Bush Terminals
"Notable in the history of the development of port facilities is the great
Hush Terminal Dock and Warehouse Company, a private enterprise
located in Brooklyn, on New York
Bay. It comprises seven modern
piers fourteen hundred feet long, and
so successful has been thc undertaking lhat New York City is now considering the purchase of its waterfront   facilities.
"Think of seven piers twice as large
as the Coleman and the Grand Trunk
docks, with fireproof warehouses in
their rear, then a large car storage
yard, and further back still and to
one side, a series of great storage and
manufacturing lofts in direct connection by rail with the docks and warehouses, the railway operated electrically, and you have an idea of the
modern harbor improvements which
in the development of the famous
Hush Terminals, has attracted such
widespread interest in tiie commercial
and  industrial  world.
"The slips are wide enough to allow barges to lie alongside of the
slips. There are also ferry connections both for rail and street traffic,
so that a big ship once tied at one of
these piers is enabled, at the lowest
rates, to have its cargo either stored
or delivered to all parts of the port
without any shifting of the vessel;
likewise, cargoes are collected. There
is practically no loading or unloading
by trucks; there are no vexatious delays. The plant is also equipped with
an $800,000 sprinkler system for lire
protection, on account of which insurance rates on goods in storage are
from ten to twenty cents a hundred,
while the rate in New York City is
twee dollars.
Importers, manufacturers and jobbers employ the Hush Terminal facilities for the collection of their wares
from all parts of the world, and for
safe storage until marketed, or until
the goods may be shipped by either
rail or boat at the minimum of handling cost; or, as the case may be, raw
materials be manufactured or put
through refining processes under the
most  favorable  conditions.
The Lesson to be Learned
"The saving in cartage bills, cosl
of handling, lack e,f delay and insurance leaves to the merchant a larger
percentage of profits, besides enabling him to underbid less favored competitors.
"The lesson eel such a private enterprise, which has nearly revolutionized
terminal   business,   may   profitably   be

prosperity   feer   themselves   and     their

"Philadelphia, although one hundred miles inland, has by no means
neglected her opportunities. Chief
city of one of the richest of stales, a
centre of manufacturers, having many
canals traversing the tributary country, and. In addition, possessing thirty
miles of actual waterfront with a

the  equal  of  New  York.

American  Pacific  Ports
"The world-wide awakening to an
appreciation of the latent possibilities
of harbor improvement is inducing
vigorous action at other ports along
the Atlantic Coast and the Gulf, as
well as at river and lake harbors and
Pacific Coast cities, Los Angeles, San
Diego, San Francisco, Oakland and
Portland are each planning extensive
betterments  along their  waterfronts.
"Los Angeles, as far as natural opportunities went, had no chance what-
e>er to become a seaport, but by consolidating with Wilmington and San

"In Portland, the Peninsular Industrial Syndicate is preparing to expend $3.(XX),(XX) on an industrial harbor, which, by reclaiming thirty-one
hundred acre of the Columbian
slough, will make available two hundred cheap facte,ry sites of ten acres,
all with fine rail and shipping facilities.
"While it  is, in a sense, a private
enterprise,   ils     magnitude     and     the
spirit  In  which  it is  undertaken,  give
it also a semi-public character.
Must Prepare for Future
"Commercially speaking, when a
city ceases preparation for the future
it ceases to grow. To provide for thc
increase of commerce, means fe.r
handling such increased expenditure
must   be    provided.       Deicks,     wa"e-
liouses,   turning   basins,     railroads,
travelling cranes, telegraph systems
and other modern devices must be installed; and account must be taken
that all these facilities will ,?ive even
a city possessing but few natural advantages a  lighting chance.

been completed, the harbor will offer
the most generous haven in the world
where ships may lie in either salt or

winds exceeding thirty-six miles an
hour, Seattle is two days nearer to
Oriental peert- than is San Francisco,
and four hundred and seventy miles
nearer to the Great Lakes at Duluth.
Even freun Seattle to Chicago the distance is one hundred and sixty-three
miles less than San Francisco,
Panama Canal Possibilities

efforts, will secure and hold over-sea

availability.
Two Special Functions

carriers. In     particular,     however,
there are two special functions, commercial and industrial.

AN ANCIENT PROBLEM
AT tbe present time there is in the criminal courts
in Vancouver the case of a man charged with
stealing money irom the company which employed
him as a car conductor. The extent of his alleged defalcations are not given. But bad be consistently
stolen all tbe fares paid him during the past twelve
months a very feu hundred dollars would reimburse
his employers for their loss.
He .that as it may. if the man bas stolen then he
should suffer the full penalty of the law. Ile should
be doubly punished. First for taking the money and
secondly for breaking a trust. If he has been a thief
he alone does not suffer. His crime casts suspicion
upon many of his brother conductors who are honest
and capable men.
There is in liritish Columbia a fear that the enforcement of tbe law is not always carried out in an
Unbiased manner. Readers of this journal will remember that about one year ago about twenty 11. C. E.
R.-Company employees���motormen and conductors���
enraged at the fact that they bad been swindled by
tiie Canadian Home Investment Company, assaulted
tbe elaborate offices of that concern witb such force
that within a few days after their visit, the company
went into liquidation.
These men had each paid into this investment company from two tn live hundred dollars. Of course
they have received nothing s,, far mil of the wreckage.
The promoters were allowed to go set free. Xo
charge was brought against them. Similarly, other
large concerns of a trust character have been taking

WELCOMING TIIE BELGIANS
IE movement in favor of the settlement
giall farmers on Saskatchewan lands in lhe vicinity uf Regina has now taken definite form. At a rc-
cenl nieeling of Ihe Regina City council, the following
motion was adopted: "That wdiereas it would appear
probable that steps will he taken in the near future
by the Dominion immigration authorities lo provide
for the location of Belgian refugees within the Dominion.
"And whereas it would appear that the neighborhood of Regina and Ihe soil of the surrounding country is peculiarly suitable for the intensive farming
methods pursued by the Belgians, and that a market
exists for garden truck produce.
"Therefore be it resolved that the city commissioners he and are hereby instructed to represent to the

THE DOMINION TRUST COMPANY
EPOSITORS in the ill-fated Dominion Trust
Company are holding meetings witli a view of
having a thorough investigation of the affairs of the
company, It is their hope to realize if possible one
hundred cents on the dollar. There appears to he no
law giving llle claims of the depositors preference.
Apparently the Mcliride-liowser Government believes
that if a working man deposits money wilh a trust
company in this province, he becomes to some extent
a partner in that trust company and is consequently
responsible with the directors in the event of failure
the earnings of conductors, motormen and  working | of the concern.    In other words, the Provincial Gov-
men generally and have defaulted.    The men have no
recourse at law���at least past experience has proved
it so.
There is much joy in heaven over the humble contributions of the widows' mite: on earth it would seem
that there is gnashing of teeth, sorrow, misery and
imprisonment for the widow's son who takes a mite
which does not belong to him. In tbe world to come
we are told that a certain type of rich man having
duly reached the place of torment is glad to receive a
drop of water placed to his lips by a Lazarus. But
that scarcely justifies a condition which permits that
eminent would make the depositor a partner in thc
company in the event of failure, but ill the event of
success, merely a mannikin getting one per cent, more
for his money than if he had it in a chartered hank.
If the Dominion Trust depositors organize thoroughly and secure the services of an expert solicitor
and one and all agree to stand together to the end.
not only will they stand a better chance of getting all
their money hack but they will do much towards fastening the blame on the right parties and making the
trust company business in liritish Columbia a mighty
sight more respectable in the future.
DOMINION TRUST COMPANY AFFAIRS
TARIFFS PLAY strange tricks as tlie following
from a Fraser Valley paper proves: "That Mr.
Charles Sasseville, a C. P. R. conductor, who operates
on the stub train which runs between Mission City and
Huntingdon, has moved his residence from Huntingdon lo Siimas, across the line���a distance of a few
hundred years���and that .Mr. Sasseville crossed the
border into lhe Slates to save paying $435 duty on a
new automobile recently won by his daughter in the
Siimas Xews contest."

THERE WAS A MAX in South Vancouver who had
a family of fourteen. It was in the pioneer days and
the children all attended church. Following the christening of tlie youngest of the lot, the parson asked the
father if he would not like to make some little subscription to the new- church fund. "What," exclaimed the father, "do you want us to supply the congregation and build the church into the bargain?"
Wednesday night the depositors in
the Dominion Trust Company, many
from South Vancouver, gathered tei
discuss ways and means of protecting
their interests. Following a lengthy
discussion, during which many special
interests, legal .-ind otherwise, tried
valiantly to sidetrack llie main issue,
an apparently satisfactory conclusion
was reached when a committee of live
depeisitors was appointed lo interview
persons relative to the appointment of
a permanent liquidator hy the depositors.
Vancouver financial men came in leer
considerable criticism at the hands of
the depositors, this in view of attempts
made hy several concerns anxious t',
serve   tlie   depositors.
When the meeting opened, Mr. J,,1m
Ranki f the stnfl fi the "Chinook,"
who is one '>f the depositors with a
considerable sum al stake, occupied
the chair. Mr. Rankin, in rep,,ning
the results of a previous nieeling, said
in part as follows :
"On Friday evening a very informal
nieeling of depositors was held in the
lohhy of the Dominion Trust Build-
ing. There appeared to lie a general
feeling among those present at that
meeting that some action should he
taken hy the depositors with the view
of securing their rights as one class
of the creditors of tlie Dominion
Trust Company, and with the view of
finding out whether that feeling was
shared by the depositors generally it
was decided to call this nieeling.
"As you are aware the present position of matters is ihis. A provisional
liquidator, a Mr. Drayton, has been
appointed hy the Court and he will remain in office for about one month
until a permanent liquidator is ap- with
pointed. From paragraphs appearing
in the newspapers il appears to have
been arranged by these parties who
have hitherto heen represented in the
Court proceedings lhat Mr. Drayton
is to be made permanent liquidator.
and what we have to consider here
principally is���will our interests as
depositors be sufficiently protected by
the appointment of Mr. Drayton as
permanent liquidator of the company?
"I was not present at the Court pre>-
cecdings myself, but a lawyer friend
who was present has mentioned a number of points that then arose that have
given rise in my mind at least, to
some doubt as to whether our interests are really to bc the lirst care of
Mr. Drayton. It appears that when
the matter was before the Court,
counsel for the Dominion Ceempany
spent seeme hours in trying to convince the Court that the Dominion
Company was not insolvent but that
it only appeared to he so. We know
that it is sufficiently insolvent for emr
purpose at present and likely le. he
for some lime lo come, but the real
reason fe,r Counsel for the Dominion Company taking up this position
was in order to defeat the petition
thai was presented by i Mr. Maxton,
hi English creditor residing in France,
ami when once it appeared that that
petition was to be disregarded, the
Dominion Ceempany directors, through
their  Counsel,  al   once agreed   le,   Mr.
Drayton's petition for a continuation
eef Ins appointment as Provisional
Liquidator, and this is more remarkable when we take Into account that
Mr I Ma, i.,n's Counsel, Mr .bee' Martin,   hail   hinted   al   the   possibility   "I*
ii,ii only  civil  hut criminal proceedings being taken against the Direct.ers
"What   sume   of   us   are   wondering
at is why   should the Directors be so
willing to  accept  a  liquidator   who  isi
thirsting to institute civil and criminal
proceedings  against  them;  hut  things
appear te, be  mure strange when  we
lake   into   account   that   Sir     Charles
Tupper, who presented the petition at
tlle  instance  of  the     English    creditor, has been appointed by the Court
as Joint-Counsel  for    Mr.    Drayton,
whose appointment Sir Charles Tupper   had   strongly   opposed.
"To outsiders who are not  familiar
the   twists  of  procedure  in   the
Courts,  the   whole  proceedings,  both
before  and   since  the  trial,   have  the
appearance   of   suggesting   some   deal
between   lhe   directors   on     tlle     one
hand, the provisional liquidator on the
oilier and thc hostile petition that was
lodged   by   Sir   Charles   Tupper,   and
what   we   depositors,   who   were     not
specially represented in Court want to
know,  is���if  a  deal   took   place,  what
provision  has been made for the protection  of our interests?    Our  claims
as   individuals   may   be   small   but   to
many of us these claims mean  much
more than the larger claims that were

represented in court, for many of us
had practically our all in the Dominion Trust. Our interest therefore is
to us a very large one and we would
be failing in our duty, not onlj lo
ourselves but to those dependent upon
us, if wc neglected lo take every precaution to ensure that we depositors
gel at least a fair deal in this matter.
"So far as the Dominion Trust
Company   itself   is   concerned,   we   eh,
not appear to have had even the appearance eif a fair deal. I have- always   understood   'hat   since   tlie   new
Trust Company Act came into force,
Trust   Companies   were   expected   t'e
keep  25   per   cenl.   ot   the   amount   "f I
theft  elepeesils  mi   hand  or  in   bank   in
a   special   account.     11   thai   had   been

I  have also underst I that  there were
Government officials appointed te, inspect the books of Trust Companies
if -ee ihat .these companies were doing what the km directed them to 'I".
but apparently the Dominion Trust j
Company was considered so strong '
thai it was above suspicion.
"The directors were paid by thc
Company not emly for looking after
their Qwn interests as shareholders but
f,,r the interests of the depositors and
creditors as well. That they have
failed ill their duty is obvious to
every,'lie of us and they must now be
prepared to face the consequences of
their own neglect. Tliey had lhe information or at least they were en-
tilled to call for the information te,
show how the Company sleiod. We.
as depositors, were not entitled to it
and we were therefore at the directors' mercy, and what we depositors
wish to be satisfied of beyond doubt
is���is the Provisieinal Liquidator
whom the Government organs tell us
is to be appointed permanent liquidator, is he to have our interests as his
lirst care or is he to endeavor le, protect depositors and directors at the
same  time?
"Those of us who were present at
Friday's meeting thought that if you
agreed with us, it would bc desirable
to take some steps at least tei satisfy

A Word to our Readers
As i'la i' uslj stati il, we have carefully iiiv, - ��� standing ami
qualifications of the Success Business
College, a'n! we do nol hesitati to
recommend this institution tu our
readers as   first-class  in   every  respect.
If ymi cahoot, because of circumstance-, secure a classical education,
yuu can surely become thc possessor
uf a commercial education. There is
Boarccly a boy or girl wlm cannot pro-
curc a gmid business training. In
youth the desperate need nf seim special equipment fnr life's battle is cut
always realized. Later in life, when
thc opportunity may have geenc by,
the one whee has carelessly allowed
his opportunity tei pass unheeded will
look hack with bitter regret.
The day in which we live is demanding more and more, a good business
ami mental equipment, if we are tn
rise abeive the deael level of things.
Do not let opportunity slip by you,
grasp it while there is yet time.
How earnestly the parents of our
boys and girls should covet for them
a better chance in life, if possible, than
they themselv -s had. A trained mind
is a better endowment than uncounted
dollars without |>\ SIX

Surel) it tlii- nun wai a toymaker,

we thought It wai io imall that it

which carried upeeii its slieuihlcrs as
will   a   house,   ���   barn,   a   slied   and   a
garden which, judging from the butti
nf cabbages and tne general remnant!
nf a harvest, must have been intensively  cultivated.
"Ves."   said   tin   owner   "I   lllis   tiny
induitry; "here i- our factory, Neet
very large, indeed, Imt bin enough fur
the preient. A man who owna a sture
uver there lias promised t" let ui move
int.. it. Hut this wai tiie emly pm-
perty we had and we couldn't afford
I,, pay rent."
It seemed strange that this ambitious
chap sin mid be forced i" confine his
industry in a ihop which wemld scarcely make a decent kennel fnr a das-
cliund. Yet it was see. Ami leer miles
around were many pieces "t" vacant
property���there are many hundreds
'if acres nf wild land in Snuth Vance mver.
Within the place a man and a woman were at wnrk at the tiniest carpenter's bench imaginable. The woman was the proprietor's wife. The
i,nly tm ils in evidence were
draw-knives, saws, a hammer
and an axe. On the floor in one corner were heaped pieces of timber of
odd sizes anel shapes which, we were
informed, had been gathered from the
wild land nearby, and in lhe opposite
corner were samples of llie finished
product���a steeut. high-headed hobby
horse, a toy Belgian cart, a train nf
cars.
"Iii these times, ynu know, wc must
make a crust." said the toymaker,
"And it entiles pretty hard at times.
Seventeen hours a day ��� that's all.
But we're makin' a living and makin'
ii honest."
Seizing the steuit limbed hobby by
the nfif hind leg, he field it up to us.
The barrel of the animal last summer
supported the thick top of a fir tree.
Tlie neck and head was yesterday but
a bit of kindling wood, The prnud
arched tail had one lime been part of
milady's muff as had also been the
inane. There were leather trappings
on the steed which had seen active
service on the feet nf the tnymaker's
sun chasing a football at Carleton
School.
".'���'���'fty cents for thii fellow," said
the toymaker. "And it takes a good
bit of time to make.liint. Fifty cents
and there isn't much I,refit in Mr.
He bby Horse. But ne's a stout fel-
l,w and he'll make a fine toy for
si ine lad this Christmas and he ain't
madf in Germany."
A powerful locomotive was ditched
in the corner and attached to it was
a tender and a train of three cars.
The toymaker picked the mogul up
by the smoke stack and proudly explained tfie construction of a toy
which sold at something like a dollar
a dozen sets.
Then the toymaker took us into his
house where, on the floor of the parlor were displayed many samples of
the output of tfie factory. Some toys,
fie said, had been sold to Hudson's
Bay Company, others had gone in a
semi-finished state tee llie Local Council of Women who find them suitably
painted and sold them wholesale about
tfie city.
In mentioning this lhe toymaker
paid a high compliment to Mrs. J. K.
Unsworth, wlm had been of great assistance to him in his struggle for a
market for his product,
Altogether il was a very "emark-
ablc little industrial concern we visited i,n thai by-street back of Ceillingwood. Tfie small house was well
furnished and the housewife had not
neglected her domestic duties by bc-
,1 lining for lhe time being a toy manufacturer. There was food in lhe larder and in the .parlor "warehouse" was
a neat little organ ou the mantle of
which were noticed hymn boeeks and
bibles,  well   worn.
"Yeni see," said the toymaker; "we
used to work at tfie building trade. I
am a first-class cabinet maker ��� or
was���in England. Here I was a carpenter and when wc first came, I
got lols eif work and bought Ihis little
property. Hut during the past two
years there was nothing for me to
do. I got work on the municipality
for a time. But this winter we faced
starvation. For six solid weeks I
had geit only two days work on the
streets. And when they started this
rock breakin'. And ynu know that
a Britisher don't like breakin' of
stones and he don't like charity and
so we turned into the toy trade. True
we work seventeen hours a day and
sometimes it's hard to get orders, but
we're makin' a do of it and our business will grow."
"Hold on 'ere till I show you one
of my own invention," said the toy-
maker, as we turned to leave the
house. From a box he pulled out a
great sheaf of flags. He threw them
carelessly upon the table. They fell
in all shapes and angles, but in a
moment they came, as a result of a
peculiar little attachment where
weight and balance were considered,
right side up. Again, hc gathered
them in his hands and threw them
back on the table. Like magic the
flags righted themselves.
"My own invention and if I had the
money I'd patent it." said the toy-
maker. "It's the bloomin' old Union
Jack  and  you  can't  keep  him  down.
I   sold   Hudson's   Bay dozen   of
them. I thought the idear out in bed
one night."
He gave us two or three of these
little flags. Before me as I write,
there is one upon the table. I take
my pencil and tilt the tiny flag
over.    But it rights itself.    I toss the
flag to tlie fleeeir and it lands with i'.-
colori in the air. rigln side up I
place tfie Bag upon tin- palm of my
hand and there it standi-, preeuel as yi i

COLLINGWOOD  CHILDREN
APPRECIATE THE
APPLE SHOW
When Mr. J. Francis Bursill took
tin- Collingwood children to tfie Ap-
pl'e Show, he asked them to write
essays on tin- visit. Five complied
with tfie request, I'rizes have been
given for tlie' essays, from which we
give some extracts.
Essay on "A Visit lo the Apple
Show, by James Rae, Carleton
School:
"Through the kindness nf Mr. Bursill a number nf pupils, from the senior classes of Carleton School, met at
Collingwood   East  Station,  Saturday,
November 7, 1914, tn visit the Vancuuver Apple Shnw.
"W'e arrived at Carrall Street Station and walked to the building. The
place was beautifully decorated for
the occasion. We walked round the
hall and observed the various specimens of apples which came from all
parts of British Columbia. There
were also many kinds of canned and
preserved  fruits.
"Besides the different varieties of
apples there were various kinds of
lish, some of which were very large;
all were found in and around British
Columbia.
"J. Leckie & Co., of Vancouver, B.C.
had a fine display of boots and shoes.
which were made at their factory in
Vancouver. I noticed some minerals
which wcre also exhibited, We next
proceeded upstairs where we recived
some apples from Mr. James Findlay.
"We were then taken lo the Colonial Theatre, on Granville Street,
where we witnessed some pictures
connected with the war. We arrived
at Collingwood East Station about 6
p.m., after having spent a very pleasant afternoon."
James Rac's essay is really very
good and it shows he keep his eyes
open. The spelling is excellent and
tlie writing clear. F.llen Massey
writes a very good essay, but surely
she should have made a better guess
at the number of apples. My dear
Ellen, there were more than six hundred���there were many thousands.
Little Kathleen Hussey writes a
pretty essay for a little girl of nine.
She has bright eyes and seems to sec
everything,
Bravo! children. You well deserve

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 tbe blocks; no
expensive plant or skilled workmen required.
ITS SANITARY QUALITIES���Creosote being a
highly 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 smooth surface absorbed
and muffled till the quiet of the dii< load is obtam-cd.
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 waterprooi 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.

Old established Main Street Merchant
Does Not Complain
Mr. J. E. Anderson, the Main Street
butcher, is selling more meat across
his counters (his week than for many
a day. He declares that business is
not half so bad as it might be and
that complaints from him must be
few.
Mr. Anderson, of course, handles
only thc choicest meats and is a likeable gentleman. These two facts
combine to counteract a possible falling off in trade.

Local   Merchant   Secures   Tract   at
Port Moody
Mr. Lancaster, Twenty-fifth Ave.,
of the firm of Lancaster & Fox, is
one of those young men in the community who have been fortunate in
securing a tract of government land
at Port Moody in a certain block
which was recently auctioned off.
Mr. Lancaster paid the sum of five
dollars an acre or thereabouts and
will have to do homestead duties upon
this farm. These duties he will be
able to handle together with his large
business at Twenty-fifth Avenue.
His example is one which might
well be followed by many other young
men in the community more in need
of the producing value of thirty acres
of land within gunshot of Vancouver
than   possibly   Mr.   Lancaster.

"(_>i The Industrial Facilities :
These need not be I.,rated in proximity tee the business or commercial
centre of the city, In fact, tluy
should be some, distance therefrom,
where the surrounding land values are
such as i" Invite manufacturing and
storage facilities. The function of
such facilities is to provide fur the
handling ,'f commodities required for
manufacturing and industrial processes, and feer the economical transfer
of bulk eargeees .ir heavy products.
"The industrial functions eif the
great world-ports are of ever-increasing importance. Manufacturing
and industrial interests are being concentrated in such centres as provide
best terminal accommodation. The
successful cities are those which have
become depots wdicre the weerld's
crude materials are assembled, manufactured and sent broadcast as lm-
ished products.
Attraction of  Industries
"When we reflect that the cost of
transporting five tons by wagon will
cover transportation of fifty tons by
rail, or five hundred tons by water.
we obtain sonic understanding why
industrial firms are looking for locations with both rail and water transportation, and we begin to appreciate
thc fact that Seattle's harbor is Seattle's opportunity; that with cheap
power in abundance, an inexhaustible
supply of coal at her very gates, and
the vast resources of its hinterland,
all that remains to be done by Seattle,
the gateway to Alaska and the Orient,
"Nothing is more certain than a
vast immigration freun Europe will
be brought t', the Pacific Ceeast
through the Panama Canal, and that
it will cause a rapid increase in population all through the regiein west of
the Reicky Mountains. Immigration
will come mostly in large steamers,
carrying not only immigrants, but alse,
freight. Seattle now recognizes that
il may become the metropolitan centre of this great westward movement,
and thc magnetic, as well as lhe strategic point in tlu- inevitable struggle
for we,rhl commerce.
"Of all the recommendations :., be
made by the Municipal Plans Com*
mission, tlmse concerning tin improvement and development of Seville's Harbor are of ranking importance. The increase in taxable wealth
alone, aside freun the ine,,nie t" be
derived freun the operation of the
port, will nie,re than pay interest
charges ,,u ihe iv.iuU anel retire she
principle  when due.
"Every judicious investment in harbor improvements should tend ;���, decrease, rather than increase, tlu- tax
rate.
Progress and Development
"It is not 'ii cessary at onci i i provide all recommended facilities, li i-
essential, however, that a beginning
be made. Effective steps for ilu- development    eel     Smith's    l'f\e.     II,lill,'V |

"Tin' earnest attention of the careful reader of the above division "i
this report is particularly called i"
the imperative need 'ef Seattle's improvement "i lur waterfront, and t"
the easily comprehended h'sse.ns of
past and present harbor attainments
elsewhere. In no other department
of public interest does precedent stand

been justified by satisfactory returns,

DOMINION TRUST AFFAIRS
Toronto  Paper    Seems    Anxious    to
Probe  it to the  Bottom
The following is an excerpt from
the Toronto "Saturday Night, whose
financial editor is devoting some attention tn tiie Dominion Trusi Com-
pany collapse :
"This is closely followed liy tlie action nf ilie Dominion Trust Company
in  seeking  voluntary  liquidation.    It
is said that the laic W. R, Arnold carried life Insurance to the extent    nf
$420,000, and thai a large pail eef thi.-,
was made out  in  favor of llie  Doiiiin-
iein Trust Company. If the directors
of Dominion Trust Company nave
Mr. Arnold a free hand, they were
als.e   fully  aware   of   the   fact   that   Ile
carried ihis extraordinary amounl  "f
life insurance, and ihey were fully informed as lo jusl what the reasons
were for lhe heavy risk. Whal the
true  situation   may  lie-  as   regards   the
i^scis of Ueiuiiiiie.il Trust  Company,
can only lie Conjectured, liul it wemld
seem lhat there is no use in trying i<>
gloss matters over at this time. What
the shareholders  of  Dominion  Trusi
Compatly, and lhe public generally, is
HOW entitled 1". is a full statement as
to llie position the company is in.
Why ilie Dominion Trusi Company
should embrace liquidation when its
profits made for tlle year 1913 amounted t.i $621,000 needs a lot of explaining. This is gross profit, as set out
in the annual reporl nf the late managing director. What the net profit
was is conjectural, lint if it was earned at all, it must have either been disbursed in such a way thai can be dis-
closed, eir it was only a paper prolit.
It appears to be significant that the
Vancouver courts recently took the
loan reserve fund of the C.H.I.C. .ent
of the bauds of the Dominion Trust
Company, and put it inlo possession
of another corporation. There arc debenture holders, mortgage heilders and
shareholders interested in the fate of
the Dominion Trust Company, and
they might as well have a frank statement as to bow affairs are, as the facts
will emerge sooner or later.
