South Vancouver Working Man Pays Canadian Home Investment Company
Over Two Hundred Dollars in Canadian Currency���Says He Is Still
Looking In Vain For Something In Return
Mr. F. G. Bramble, 5051 Windsor Street,
South Vancouver, Employee of B.C.E.R.,
One of Many-Local Workmen Paying Money
Into C.H.I.C. Maizes Protest���Says He Has
Paid in Two Hundred and Twenty-eight
Dollars and so far Has Received Only
Prettily Lithographed Contract-- Writes Letter
To Editor on Subject Condemning
Company Officials
IM its prospectus, the Canadian
Home Investment Company makes
a plea for the patronage of the working man on the grounds that thc company will save him from "Shylock"
money lenders. The company pays
2tl per cent., it claims, to working-
men investing in its home loan contract scheme.
The following letter will bc of interest:
To the Editor of the "Chinook" :
Sir,���Kindly allow me space in your
per to discuss a matter which I
ink should be given wide publicity,
am an tinglishman and have been
this country several years. I came
re with expectations that financial
eiicerns in Canada and British Col-
mbia were under the supervision of
ie government and wcre run along
���nest lines.
During  the  year   1912,   there  came
n unexpected blow of bard luck to
ivself and  wife���which  is an  cvery-
ay occurrence in a large city. Short-
after our marriage, 1 faced an out-
i-work   problem   through   no   fault
i  my  own, which  meant very little
��� come and go upon after meeting
ig monthly payments on a home.
An   agent,   representing  the   Cana-
:;in   Home     Investment     Company,
.iring of my plight, induced me to
ity   two  home   purchasing  contracts
i   the   Canadian   Home   investment
"inpany.   Hc represented in all good
ith  that  it  would  bc  a  great  boon
us.   I should pay but $6.00 a month
n  each  contract  for nine  or  twelve
lonths,  I   would  have  the  privilege
i borrowing $2,000 at S per cent, in-
rest  for  ten  and a  half years.    It
lunded good and I saw here an op-
���i tunity  to raise $2,000 and pay off
���' debt on my home and have nine
cars in which to settle with my fine
e ncfactors.
One year elapsed. I was still paying $6.00 a month on each of these
home loan contracts. I was also
paying $50.00 a month on my home.
I could get no loan from the C.H.I.C.
Eighteen months have now elapsed.
I still have to pay $12.00 monthly
to the C.H.I.C. Up to date I have
given over to the C.H.I.C. $228.00 of
my earnings as a motorman on the
B. C. E. R. Company. Am I to have
to pay these dues to thc C.H.I.C. for
thc rest of my life? I have already
paid so much that I cannot turn
back  now.
I went to their offices today and
was informed that I could withdraw
from the company if I would accept
$106.98 in full of account. I must
save up and give these people $228
and get back $106.98.
This is what the C.H.I.C. calls
straight business. How many other
working men, Mr. Editor, are there
in South Vancouver who have been
taken in as I have? Is the existence
of such a concern as this in the community good for Vancouver?
Their agent who coaxed me into
taking the contract in the first place
said that the company was a godsend
to the poor man. It offered a good
way to get out of paying high rent
and high interest to the "Shylock"
money lenders. He was a very smooth
tongued liar, that agent.
It simply amounts to this that the
Canadian Home Investment Company charges mc one hundred per
cent, for the privilege of giving them
money. There are many men employed in thc B. C. E. R. Company
who have been taken in on this
scheme, who have been influenced to
j a certain extent by thc fact that some
of the directors of the Canadian Home
Investment Company are reputable,
or supposedly so, citizens of Vancouver.
Is this Man Wright a Climber?
To thc Editor of the "Chinook" :
Sir,���Regarding the remarks made at a recent South Vancouver
Board of Trade meeting by Mr. J. C. Wright, relative to the "Chinook"
I have noted the remarks of "Felix Penne," whom I admire as a
public-spirited man and endorse him accordingly, so I would respectfully request that thc citizens of South Vancouver know who
Mr. J. C. Wright is. He is ex-secretary of the Cedar Cottage Conservative club, of which the Rev. J. C. Madill is vice-president. Mr.
J. C, Wright was Mr. J. C. Madill's right-hand man at the time of
the row in' Mr. Madill's church. Mr. J. C. Madill worked hard to
get Mr. J. C. Wright his J. P. appointment. Mr. Madill used influence at Ottawa, to get Mr. Wright appointed a commissioner on
the Fraser River Development Commission. Councillor Dickinson
says that the Rev. Madill wanted Mr. Wright appointed as a Licence
Inspector for South Vancouver. I am also informed that Mr. Madill
has already bespoken Mr. Wright for municipal honors for the coming election. Mr. Wright was Mr. Madill's right-hand supporter
during the recent fracas in the Cedar Cottage Conservative Club, and
now Mr. Wright is in a government job; so with all this before us,
I have wondered why the chairman of the Board of Trade's advertising committee did not make thc repeirt to the board. Is this man
Wright throwing the balls others make? Wcre Wright's remarks the
result of some sneaking politicians who want to muzzle the
"Chinook?"   Seems like it to me.
If South Vancouver is ever going to be the place we all want it
to be, it will not be brought about by either hirelings or political
benchers; so 1 hope the Board of Trade will continue the support of
the only good, clean paper we have in South Vancouver, and the one
that is a credit to us,���namely, the "Chinook."
Yours  truly,
Cedar Cottage South Vancouver, November 4, 1913.
It is regrettable that politics should be allowed to enter into
the work of the Board of Trade. This organization of business men
has done more to build up South Vancouver than any other agency.
If it be true that the Mr. Wright referred to has been the cat's paw
of any peanut politicians, it is very sad indeed. The Board of Trade
might guard against the occurrence of a similar incident, by looking more closely into thc credentials of applicants for membership.
We are assured of the fact that the reliable section of the Conservative party have no finger in the affair and we regret that this journal  should  be  brought  into  the  controversy.���Ed.

that I will write home to England

In the next two or three months
South Vancouver will go through
the throes of an exciting municipal
campaign. This time it appears the
election will be more hotly contested than at any previous time. From
the rumors that are already afloat,
there will be no dearth of candidates
either for the reeveship, councillor
positions, or that of schoo! trustee.
The issues will likely be several in
number and thoroughly discussed so
that Mr. "Common Peepul" will have
a full opportunity to judge the different aspirants and their issues from
every standpoint.
There are already several avowed
candidates for the recveship. Included in this list it is said are Mr. William Morris, at present school trustee and Councillor Dickinson. While
neither of the above mentioned have
made a statement up to this time as
regards their candidacy, it is quite
certain that at least Mr. Morris will
be found in the battle opposing Reeve
Kerr and any others who may aspire.
While "Fighting Jack" may not stand
for the reeveship it is certain that he
will again run for the councillorship
from Cedar Cottage. Mr. Gold, of
the Voters' League, will also run feir
reeve, it is said.
If Mr. Morris runs he will most
likely have the suppeert of the famous
"Committee of Fifty." who managed
his campaign for school trustee last
year as well as that of Councillor
Wilbers of Collingwood. It is said
he would continue, if possible, to hold
the position of school trustee, if
elected to the reeveship. as Mr. Morris is of lhe opinion that much good
could come from the co-operation of
the school board with the council.
He and Trustee Campbell were elected in 1912 for a term ai two years.
Incorporation will undoubtedly be
ilie platform upon which the present
administration will stand. Councillor
Campbell is the father of the incorporation bylaw which is to be voted
upon at the same time as the officers
in January. Should Incorporation
carry, it would become necessary I
hold another cleetieeii ior mayor and
aldermen, ihe successful candidates
in tin first election would likely have
little opposition as lhe issues would
lie   practically   the   same.
Rumor has it lhat Ceeiineille r John
Third   will   not   aspire   again.     He   i-
said to be grooming a younger man
for the position, but the councillor's
many friends are asking him to stand
again, and sei when the time approaches John Third will very likely
be  found among lhe nominees.
Weird comes from Collingwood that
Mr. Wilbers will neit run again from
that ward, but it is early yet and it
is possible that Mr. Wilbers will be
induced to stand for another year.
It is said that a new law has recently gone into effect iiti British
Columbia which makes it demanda-
tory upon a candidate to reside in the
municipality before he may file his
nomination papers. In this case
Councillor Thomas would bo disqualified. The same reasons would stop
Edward Gold from standing for the
council, as it is believed it is bis intention  oi doing.
In the matter of school trustees it
is very likely that the present board
will go to the people on the strength
of their management of the affairs
feer the last year. Morris and Camp-
hell were elected for the two-year
term, so that only Whelpton, McArthur and N'eelands of the present
board will have to run. No Opposition to this board have as yet been
Mr.  "Joe"   Christie   May   Run
Mr. Joe. Christie, formerly of the
Assessor's department at the Municipal Hall, may come out for councillor in Ward 4. In the event of the
retirement of Councillor Third, it is
stated that Mr. Christie will consent
t.i pressure being brought to bear
upon him by a large number of ratepayers who believe that his familiarity wilh the inside municipal workings
qualifies him for a seat on the council.

Phoenix-like, the Anglican Church
of St. Peter, South Vancouver, is
rising courageously from the ashes
of the lire which destroyed the
beautiful little building a fortnight
ago. Services are being held in a
store, wonderfully transformed from
tbe mundane aspect to the aspect spiritual. The place is within a couple of
blocks of the site of St. Peter's church
where a scorched lych-gate and a
brick chimney arc all that remain of
the church building.
Within the store in less than fifteen
days, loyal workers of thc membership of St. Peter's have wrought a
marvellous transformation. Not the
ordinarily to be expected rows of
chairs as for a political meeting greet
thc eye on entering, but plain wood
pews properly modelled out of fir. No
mere raised dais platform for the
preacher is here, but a simple alter,
lectern, and reading desk have been
fashioned of the same plain white
wood, and the alter steps have been
carpeted. Rev. G. C. F. Caffin, rector
of the church, mentioned to The Sun
that all this work has been done in
less than a fortnight as a labor of
love for the church in its time of distress by its loyal supporters. Even
the carpeting for the alter steps is
the gift of an old member of the
church. Next Sunday the plain wood
seats will be stained, and step by step
the brave little church will battle its

The strike situation over on the Island has taken on ��� meere hopeful out-
leieik the past week. Since the last
session of the Trades and Labor Congress oi Canada, President Watteri
has been Incessantly at work in an
endeavor ts bring matters tee ��� head.
The recent correspondence between
the President of the Congress and
Mr. Frank Partington, the chief o|r
liccr iu charge of the strike show that
the efforts are likely to bear fruit.
Mr. Walters has intimated that the
Minister of Labor is willing to create
a special arbitration board to go into the question at dispute.
Tlic miners, although empowered
to choose one of their own officer!
as their representative, are quite willing to forego this right and intimated
that they will choose a citizen of B.
C. to acl for them on the board.
The mine-owners, at the time of
writing have not yet intimated whether they intend falling in with the suggestion, but it seems hardly likely
they will turn  the overtures down.
Should they fail to appoint a representative the government has
special power to nominate one themselves. It is to be hoped this will not
bc necessary.
At this stage of the proceedings, it
is not our wish to deal further with
the question at stake, our only hope
being that successful issue be the result.

A meeting of unionists favorable to
the formation of.a Labor Party will
be held in thc Labor Temple, Tuesday, November 11. Invitations have
been sent to the various unions to
send two delegates and it is hoped
that all  will  be  represented.
At no time more than now is it
felt that organized labor should have
a voice on the civic councils and
other bodies, and in parliamentary
affairs,  provincial  and  dominion.
The average worker with strong
views on labor and other questions
has looked askance at the two orthodox parties. Their views were not his
views and often as not his vote would
not be exercised owing to the futility he felt in voting for either of the

Central   Parliament   Discuss   Women's    Suffrage���Hears    Brilliant
Address from Mrs. McConkey
Central Parliament again met in
Session, Tuesday, in the Municipal
Hall, for the third time.
The members of the government
were out in full strength, the inference being that the cabinet were unanimous on the question to be brought
up in debate: "The Franchise Act."
Among the early arrivals at the
legislative chambers was Mrs. McConkey, a lady who has taken a very
prominent part locally in the light
for women's rights.
The spectators' gallery had the-
largest attendance of the session. It
is quite evident that the suffrage
question is a live one and the interest
taken in the doing of the legislators
was very gratifying.
At the outset, Reeve J. A. Kerr
took the speaker's chair.
Mrs. McConkey was the first speaker for the women's cause. She asked
that the suffrage question should not
be looked upon as a party measure.
She claimed that thc Liberal and Socialist parties had done most for the
women's cause.
In a general review of the situation,
Mrs. McConkey brought out some
very telling points. Instancing that
women in British Columbia were
filling positions in the province on
the same equality as men, minus,
however the vote.
The speaker gave a fine historical
account of the rise of women during
last sixty years. Going over the various professions, she endeavored to
show that in almost all cases where
women have entered into competition
with man shc has shown a degree of
efficiency that has marked women
as  fully equal  to men.
In the field of science women's
names  were   indelibly  marked.
She claimed that Women entering
into the political field would give the
necessary stimulus in dealing with
legislation which was wanting at thc
present time.
Dealing with the "home question,"
Mrs. McConkey made a very decisive
hit. "It had often been said by the
antis'," said the speaker, "lhat the
granting of the vote would mean lhe
break up of the home." She went on
to show that women's natural place
was the home, and it was because oj
that that the vote was most urgently
required. In thc home training of
thc future citizen, the women with
their greater powers would be more
able to instil into the youthful minds
some logic which would benefit them
in  after life.
Mrs. McConkey said that the women would leave nothing unturned
in thc future legislation that would
deprive her of equal guardianship
rights with regard to Iheir children.
The speaker was given a splendid reception  on  resuming  hcr  seat.
Premier Pleming in congratulating
the previous speaker, said it was refreshing to hear the women's cause
put in such a clear, concise fashion.
He could hardly realize how our sister parliament across the seas could
logically deprive the women of thc
right to vote after the speaker had
shown so clearly the disabilities women were working under.
Mr. Kavanagh, Socialist member
for Ladysmith, made a strong attack
on the government. He failed to see
what Premier Pleming was congratulating himself upon, they had promised the women something but were
in reality giving them nothing.
Secretary of State Lamond supported the bill.
Mr. Hill intimated that for the first
time the cross benches had got a
strangle hold on the government and
unless the government allowed them
to amend thc bill they were prepared
to exercise it.
The premier said he would be prepared to hear what the cross-benches
had to propose.
Mr. Charleton, Nanaimo, then
read the amendment:
Preamble: ihis act shall supersede all other acts on the statute
books of the province that may in
any way conflict with this act.
Amendment to Clause 1���The
franchise shall be extended to all females on the same terms as men
Mr. Jacques, Conservative member,
made a speech against the adoption
of the measure, which was very much
interrupted   during  delivery.
Mr. Rankin supported the measure with the provision that the government incorporate the preamble
and amendment to Clause 1 as
brought forward by his hon. friend
on the cross-benches.
Councillor Thomas was against
giving the women the vote for var-
ieius reasons.
The Premier moyed the adoption
of the preamble as submitted by the
cross-benches.    Agreed to.
The Premier next moved the adoption of Clause 1 as amended by the
Secretary of State Lamond moved
the adoption of Clause 2 and Mr.
Mengel (Socialist) moved an amendment that the twelve months residence In the province be deleted and
that  six be  inserted.
The Clause 2 came in for a deal
of discussion, in which the militia
came in for some severe criticism.
Mr. Kavanagh on the cross-benches
moving an amendment that militiamen be debarred from exercising the
vote,    Mr.  Rankin seconded.
The government agreed to accept
6 months qualification instead of 12
and the Clause was carried by a
The Premier moved that the house
report progress.   Agreed to.
Mr. Lamond on behalf of the government gave notice that he would
introduce a bill dealing with incorporation.
Mr. Charleton gave notice of motion to the following effect:
Whereas from time to time great
distress has prevailed in this province of British Columbia from the
presence of vast numbers of unemployed people, in some cases leading
to violence and always causing many
people to be dependent on charity
while at the same time there exist in
Ibis province vast natural resources
still undeveloped and which if developed would undoubtedly sustain
many millions of people and whereas
such a condition now exists and is
from week tei week becoming more
apparent. Therefore bc it resolved
that the lieetise of assembly considers
it a matter of urgent need that the
Lieutenant-Governor in Council reserve from sale, lease, or pre-emption
an area of land equal to one half the
agricultural and timber lands now
i csted in tbe crown in Ihis province
and take immediate steps to provide
employment on these lands for such
as may apply in order that the aforesaid lands may hc made fit for settlement and where these lands arc
located at a distance from already
settled points that good roads be
constructed in order that settlers may
have easy access. Be it further resolved that this assembly urges upon thc government the advisability
of making such an appropriation of
public funds as shall enable thc department in whose hands the work
lays to adequately provide for all contingencies, resting assured that the
vast increase in value of the land and
thc revenue from the sale of the products of the labor applied will more
than repay the cost and will remove
the distress existing without resource

If such an exhibition as yesterday's
must be specialized, we might say
that three of the numbers encored
were succeeded by themselves. These
were Schumann's "Widmung," Debussy's "Mandoline" and "J'ai pleure
en reve," by G. Hue. When a song
has delighted to the point of arousing prolonged applause it is because
the bearers want a rehearing and not
something else, and Gogorza answers
this appeal almost without exception,
catering to the taste of the assemblage.
Henry Giles, a young Parisian pianist, who accepted the world tour with
Gogorza for its educational advantages, made a distinctly favorable impression and was heartily encored
after his solo selections.

The High Priestess of the Militant
Suffragists���Mrs. Emmeline Pankluirst is in America! Will she come
to Vancouver? I hope so. I shall
bc glad to renew my acquaintance
with a clever, remarkable woman,
whose good work .along social lines,
I well know and whose character I
much respect. It is right to add,
however, that I knew Mrs. Pank-
hurst before she became so prominent as a "militant" suffragette. I
also knew her husband "Tom" Pankluirst. He was at one time a candidate for a south London constituency
and I heard him with fiery, almost
anarchistic haranguers in a thin
treble voice that almost squeaked
like a penny trumpet. A remarkable
man was Tom Pankluirst, well worthy
of a wife with so much unique individuality  as   Emmeline possesses.
Emmeline Goulden was born in
England, on the anniversary of the
storming of the Bastile. Radicalism
may bc said to run in her blood. Hcr
father was a prominent Radical politician, and her grandfather narrowly escaped with his life at thc great
Franchise Riots at Peterloo, in 1819.
I have litle doubt that thc memories of "thc Peterloo Massacre" tinged
has whole life. F.inmcline was educated at Paris, and there met the
daughter of Henri Rochefort and became an ardent Republican. Miss
Goulden had been unusually gifted
by nature, not only with intelligence
and courage, but also with personal
attractions. In her youth shc had
the reputation of being one of the
most beautiful women in England.
In 1879 shc met Dr. Pankhurst, a
distinguished barrister, who had been
a member of the first Woman Suffrage Society, founded by John
Stuart Mill, and she married him in
the same year.
A little later she was placed on the
Executive Committee of the only
Woman Suffrage Society then existing, and was also on the Women's
Committee for pushing the Married
Women's Property Bill, drawn by
Dr. Pankhurst, which is now law.
The women of England owe much
to her for thc rights they already
possess under the law.
In 1883 Mrs. Pankhurst assisted
her husband as Independent Radical
candidate for Manchester, and two
years later as Radical candidate for
Rotherhithe. In 1886 she went to
London and joined the Fabian Society and the Holborn Women's Liberal
Association. She remained a Liberal
until 1892, when she joined the Independent Labor Party, and returned
to  Manchester.
It was during the Rotherhithe contest and her subsequent stay in London that I knew Mrs. Pankhurst. I
wrote a biography of her husband
from notes she dictated to me and I
was impressed by her womanly affection and respect for her "Tom."
Mrs. Pankhurst has repeatedly
been chosen by her fellow townsmen to hold positions of trust and
responsibility. In 1892 she stood as
the Independent Labor candidate for
the  Manchester School  Board.   The
following year she was elected on
thc Board of Poor Law Guardians
for Manchester, receiving the highest vote of any of the successful candidates. She served in that capacity
for five  years.
In 1899, on her husband's death,
she was appointed Registrar of Births
and Deaths, and the following year
was elected as Trades Council Nominee of the School Board. She twice
served on the National Demonstration Council of the Independent Labor   Party.
She held her appointment as Registrar until shc was deprived of it, hcr
friends say, because of her activity
in the suffrage movement. Her four
children, a son and three daughters,
wcre all young. She went into business and contrived to give them all
a university education.
Each of her three daughters lias
developed a separate gift, and uses
it for the cause. Christabel has studied law, and is a good speaker, and
very bright at answering questions.
She is a great favorite because of
her prettiness and hcr wit. At balls,
she is besieged by the young men
with requests to dance. Sylvia is an
artist, and designs banners for the
suffrage processions, and decorations
for the meetings. Adela writes. But
the three girls can all change parts
on occasion, writing or speaking or
going to prison. Mrs. Pankhurst is
often called by her friends "the
Mother of the Gracchi."
I do not know the exact date when
Emcline Pankhurst became a militant. I have nothing but admiration
and respect for the woman���as I
knew her���oh! it seems so long ago.

The  Collingwood  "House  of  Parliament"   had   a   very   unfamiliar   appearance  on   Saturday  night.     Councillor Wilbers (Deputy Speaker! presided,  Mr. W. H. Kent being absent.
Mr. Tom Todrick occupied the place

here I can let out a secret���The University   Club   will   hold  a   parliament
in a week or two.    It will be a session  iu 2013���and the debate will  be
on   the   question   "Arc   men   worthy
of the  franchise?" debated of course
by a parliament of women.    Premier
Todrick   outlined   government   measures to be introduced during the session.     Naval   defence   will   bc   again
considered,  also  amendments   to   the
Immigration  Acts.    An  attempt   will
be  made  to  abolish  trial  by  jury  in
criminal   cases!    Thc  house   gave   a
gasp of surprise when this announcement  was  made.    "Juries  frequently
acquit guilty men and pronounce innocent  men  guilty.    That  could  not
happen   if  a   judge   tried   the   case���
without   a   jury,"   said   Premier  Todrick,   which   statement   provoked   an
other gasp of surprise. Mr. Todrick
is a lawyer. Docs he never appeal i

Cutting Down the Meat Bill
The high price of meat baa been
one oi the must difficult problems for
housewives to solve. But it a woman
understands the cheaper cuts and instead of buying expensive roasts,
steaks or chops, she will buy peel
roasts, shoulders oi lamb or pork,
rnund ur llauk steaks, she will at
least find her problem much less difficult.
These cuts call bc prepared in many
ways thai make them so tender and
appetizing, it will be difficult for anyone tee believe ihey were not the expensive cuts. The first consideration
is In buy meat ill which there is no
waste. When buying a shoulder of
lamb have the bone removed and use
it for se.up. When buying the cheaper cuts nf chops, cut nff the ends ami
put these through the food grinder.
In that way there will he chops inr
nnc meal and croquettes fnr another.
Breast of lamb is very reasonable

I ways.     When   roasted   it   becomes   a
i rich briewn it is one ��� >t  the most  de-
' licioui cuts nf meat obtainable.   Fri-
leasee chickens, considering whai ean
, be done with them, are imt si, very
I expensive,    A   three   or   four   pound
fowl   cm   inte'  pieces,    stewed    anil

is made by chopping thc bacon intee

Toronto "Saturday Night" advised the public to
steer clear of the Canadian Home Investment Company, and, according to the statement of claim made
in a libel action later brought against the "Saturday

Working men, many of them South Vancouver
residents, have been the principle purchasers of the

We publish in this issue a letter from a reliable
South Vancouver workingman setting forth his opinion of the Canadian Home Investment Company and
its tactics. While not assuming any responsibility for
the statements of that gentleman, we publish the letter for the fair consideration, not only of those who

this concern, but as well as those who may be at present entertaining propositions from glib-tongued salesmen from the offices of the Canadian Home Investment Company.
nexation of South Vancouver to the City of Vancouver.
Chances are that the delegation's trip will prove
fruitless. Already. Sir Richard has turned South
Vancouver's plea for annexation down three times.
It is not likely that he will yield today. There are
too many considerations at stake. It matters not
whether South Vancouver and the City are both anxious for annexation, the people's wishes in this matter must he lost sight of.
W'e repeat that the annexation uf this municipality
to Vancouver would mean the adding of a great area
io the city and a population of forty thousand people.
It would mean that the City of Vancouver would
then have within its boundaries more than half of
the total population of the Province.
It would mean that the Mayor of Vancouver would
have greater power, possibly, than the Premier of the
In short, such a move would knock the strangle
hold that McBride and llowser have over the Lower
Mainland largely into a cocked hat.
The chances are that the delegation will get turned
down cold, and tlie only good result from the visit
will be that a few dyed-in-the-wool Tories who are in
favor of annexation will have their eyes opened to a
certain extent as to the real character of the despots
at Victoria.
THE Municipal Electrician���Mr. L. F. Rawden���
paid a visit to the Collingwood and District
Business Men's Association at their ordinary meeting
last week. The object was to explain the proposition
for a municipal electric light and power plant���a question on which the ratepayers will be called upon to
vote. Mr. Rawdcn's report and suggestions were
deemed so important that steps were taken to arrange
for a public meeting to discuss the question. The
Reeve and Councillors will be asked to attend this
meeting, which will be held at the Collingwood Institute and will be fully announced in our columns. By
that time, all being well, a fine arc light, of the description which can be called "Rawden's Improved"
will bc installed outside the institute and will give an
idea of the illumination the municipal electrician proposes to give South Vancouver.
The elaborate report which Mr. Rawden has presented to the council on "municipal electricity" has
already been dealt with in our columns. We venture
to hope that all those who attend the meeting and all
those who will be called upon to vote, will give the
subject very serious consideration. Of course only
those with technical knowledge of the subject could
deal adequately with Mr. Rawden's very elaborate report, and before it is acted upon the proposals made
should bc subjected to expert criticism of the most
severe character. The area covered���the population

Speaking in the abstract the municipal ownership
of utilities is a thing devoutly to be wished, that is
when the municipality is run by "business men, with
business methods"���when the officials are zealous and
efficient, and the citizens are alive to the necessity of
that "eternal vigilance" which is only the price of
liberty and of good government.
If South Vancouver does not intend to wake up to
its responsibilities, if the people do not intend to watch
the progress of events, through the public press, the
various associations and otherwise, then the municipality had better let enterprizes of great pith and moment grow pale and lose the name of action. Such
an undertaking as Mr. Rawden proposes needs the
hearty co-operation and the live interest of every citizen. Are the citizens prepared to give that? If not!

In every ward throughout the municipality, the
council, upon the recommendation of Mr. J. B. Springford, the municipal clerk, will, for several weeks previous to the holding of the Court of Revision, have
booths open from seven o'clock in the evening.until
ten, and for other periods during the day, where bona
fide voters may enroll their names.
There will be no grounds then for any duly qualified citizen to make complaint after the elections are
over. The responsibility will rest distinctly with the
citizen and not with any official or member of the
Probably the council, in deciding upon this new departure, have been influenced by the attitude of a certain section of the ratepayers during the past year,
towards the administration. This year's council have
received a great deal of abuse, which, if the theory of
popular municipal government works out in South
Vancouver, has not been warranted.
It is the people who elect the reeve and council. It
is assumed that the man who votes is a sane, intelligent, party. And if this be the case, then the reeve
and councillors should be representative of the people. Probably the trouble in South Vancouver has
heen that the people have not been paying sufficient
attention to their civic duties in the past. This year's
council have been handicapped by receiving little or no
co-operation from the ratepayers.
This plan of seeking the enrollment of ratepayers
on the voters' list will be accepted as a worthy move.
It indicates the fairness of the present reeve and councillors, and it is to be trusted that it will have its effect upon awakening more interest and co-operation
in the administration of the municipality.

A READER OF THE "ChinSok" says de does not
approve of the "Lancet's" attack on the Englishman's
breakfast of bacon and eggs, and its advocacy of "coffee and rolls" instead. In order to meet his real estate
and other calls he has for some months been trying t> i
live on coffee and doughnuts, but hc says his chief
ambition in life now is to raise swine and poultry.

BOTH SWINE AND Poultry raising are more profitable than realised by people in Greater Vancouver.
In Ladner and the Delta swine raising especially has
been a considerable source of wealth. With the new
ferry from the Delta in operation, we may reasonably
expect, for one thing, to find that bacon and eggs with
coffee will become more popular in South Vancouver

M. SENDA, ONE OF the principal Japanese speakers
at the official dinner given a few days ago in Vancou
ver in honor of thc Mikado's birthday, announced that
it was Japan's ambition to be mistress of the Pacific
Ocean. Although Mayor Baxter and a number of
Canadian and British subjects were present, the Japanese orator calmly invited them all to "assist Japan
in this ambition of hers, so that the Pacific Ocean would
no longer divide the great nation of the earth." As
no protest of any kind appears to have been made
by Mayor Baxter or any other British speaker with
regard to this startling declaration of policy no doubt
the Japanese present consider that Vancouver is resigned to its fate. If such is thc ambition now openly
avowed by the Jap, what can bc the secret aim of the
silent Chink?   But why should we worry?

By GOUVERNEUR MORRIS        In  Two   Parts���PART   ONE
In most affairs, except tboM which
related t <�� bit matrimonial ventures,
Marcui Antonius Saterlec *u I pat-
I lent man. On three occasion! "an
ardent temperament and the heart of
a dove," as he himself had expressed
it, hid corralled a wife within his
house. The lirst had been llie love
fi Ins childhood; the wooing of the
second had lasted but six weeks; tbat
of the thin! lint three lie- rejoiced
ill   thc  fact that  lie  bad heen  I  good
husband tee three good women, lie
lamented tbat all were dead. Now
and then he squirmed his hull head
around on his bull body, and glanced
acrosi the isle at the showy woman
who was daintily picking a chicken
wing, Each time hc looked he mut-
I. red :
"Flighty. Too slight. Stuck on
herself,   I'inhcad," etc.
With hii food Saterlee wai not patient. Ik- dispensed with mastication.
Neither was he patient eef other people's matrimonial ventures. And, in
particular, that contemplated and
threatened by his son and heir was
moving across three hundred miles
of inundated country as fast as a
train cnuld carry him. His son had
written :
"Dearest Dad���I've found Dorothy
again. She's at Carcassone. They
thought her lungs were had, but they
aren't. We're geiing to be married
a week from today���next Friday���at
9 a.m. This marriage is going tee take
place. Daddy dear. You can't prevent it. I write this so's tee be on the
square. I'm inviting you to the wedding. I'll be hurt if you don't show
up. What if Dorothy's mother is an
actress and has been divorced twice?
You've been a marrying man yourself. Dad. Dorothy is all darling
from head to feeot. But 1 love you,
too, Daddy, and if yeiu can't see it
my way, why, God bless and keep
vou  just  the  same.
T can't deny that Marcus Antonius
Saterlee was touched by his son's
epistle. But he was not moved out
of reason.
"The girl's mother," he said to himself, "is a painted, divorced jade."
And he thought with pleasure of thc
faith, patience and rectitude of the
three gentle companions whom he
had successively married and buried.
"There was never any divorce in the
Saterlec blood," he had prided himself. "Man or woman, we stick by
our choice till he or shc turns up his
or her toes. Not till then do we
think of anybody else. But then wc
do, because it is not good to live
alone, especially in a small community in Southern California."
He glanced once more at the showy
lady across thc isle. Shc was finishing her chicken wing, and was dipping hcr fingers in a finger-bowl, thus
displaying to sparkling advantage a
number of handsome rings.
"My boy's girl's mother a painted
actress." he muttered as he looked.
"Not if I know it." And then he muttered: "You'd look like an actress
if you was painted."
Though the words cannot have been
distinguished, the sounds were audible.
"Sir?" said the lady, stiffly but
"Nothing, Ma'am," muttered Mark
Anthony, much abashed. "I'm surprised to see so much water in this
arid corner of tbe world, where I
have often suffered for want of it. 1
must have been talking to myself to
thnt effect."
The lady looked out of the window
���not her's,  but  Satcrlee's.
"It does look." she said, "as if the
waters had divorced themselves from
the bed of ocean. I suppose," she
continued, "wc may attribute tli..-��-
constant and tedious delays tei which
we have been subjected all day to the
premature nulling e,f snow   in   the
laitnesses of the Sierras?"
This   phrase   did   lie.I   sh'eck   Sa'.et-

dote paraphrase of it in a copy of
th.   Tomb  Ciiy   Picayune  which  he
bad he.light at that city.
The train ran  slower and slower.
"II., you think we shall ever get
anywhere?"   queried   the   lady.
''Not when we expect tee, Ma'am,"
saiel   Saterlee.
The train gave a jolt. And then.
very quietly, the dining-car redleel
over e.n iu side down the embankment. There- wa, a subdued smashing of china and glass. A clergyman
at eme' e,( ilie rear tables quietly remarked. "Washout," and Saterlee,
whe. hael neit forgotten thc days when
lie had learned to fall from a bucking bronco, relaxed his great muscles
ami swore roundly and at greal
length. The car came to rest at thc
bottom fi the embankment, less on
ii- side than on its top. For a moment-���or se, it seemed���all was perfectly quiet. Then Satterlee saw the
ihowy lady across the aisle descending upon  him through the air.
"Thank ynu." she murmured, as her
impact drove must of thc breath "in
of Satterlee's bull body. "How strong
yen  arc!"
"When yem are rested, Ma'am."
said hc. with extreme punctiliousness.
"1 think wc may leave the car by

The lady advanced to his side,

Saterlee." I can promise nothing.
It's all up to the horse."
"Of course," said the lady, "it

spoke a little bitterly, "several times

Preceding  the reception given by
the Women s Canadian Club in honor
ol Miss Margaret Aiiglm, at Gk-ncue
Lodge recently, a business nieeling of
the club was held in llie Sunday
school room of Wesley Church. Two
important matters, one ol them likely lo have a lar-reaching etlecl, were
taken up. The presidenl, Mrs. J. J.
Uaulield, presented tu the club lhe
proposition ol buying more shares in
ihe Women's iiuililing, -Ltd. The
club already holds about $3U0 worth
ol shares, and by the unanimous vote
of lhe meeting a motion to the etlecl
that the club purchase the value of
$400 in shares was passed. The second matter of business was llie proposed memorial to the late Miss 1'aul-
nie Johnson, This occasioned some
discussion. The club was unanimous
in wishing tu have some memorial,'
but was divided as to what form it
should take. While the club will not
be entirely responsible lor the memorial, they telt that it was their duty
to inaugurate the movement by starling a fund. Mrs. Banfield slated.that
alter careiul consideration the committee had decided that a fountain
erected near the poetess' grave would
be a lilting memorial; the ever flowing stream symbolizing the constant
pleasure to be found in lhe poems
left by this gifted woman. The fountain would meet with the approval
of the Park Board, she said, and
would also be within reason as to
cost. Mrs. Patterson moved that the
club endorse this plan, while Mrs.
Alorris moved an amendment to the
effect that the memorial take the form
of a hall in the Woman's Building,
to be named for Miss Johnson. After
some discussion Mrs. R. J. Wilson,
in an amendment to thc amendment,
moved that the club use its influence
in having the hall named for Miss
Johnson, but adhere to the original
plan to erect a memorial in the park.
After further consideration the club
voted in favor of tlie memorial in
Stanley Park by a large majority. Before closing Mrs. Banfield stated that
the club had sent a message ol" welcome to' H. R. Hi the Duchess of
Connaught  on  her return  tu Canada.
The Children's Christmas Money
It is drawing around the time of
year when evenings grow long and
chill and after the home study there
is yet a little time that could profitably be spent in making gills for
dear friends ere it is time to sleep,
but the grave problem of how tp secure the necessary articles; or the
wherewithal to purchase the material is what usually confronts the growing boy or girl who is not yet earning for themselves, but 1 have just
heard of one family who solved the
problem in a most satisfactory manner, and 1 shall tell my readers of
it, and if too late fur this year, it
will stand for another, eer offer suggestions for something else. They
live ou a farm a few miles from the
city, and consequently, their wares
must be Something that can lind a
ready  sale among city  people,
There are two children in the family, a buy and girl, the girl being the
youngest. The work of the boy during the summer was collecting mushrooms iu  the fields and pastures.
There are several varieties which
he collected separately and obtained
a good price for them,
At first he sold thein to hotels, but
when it became known that he had
them, their market was made, and
private families ordered them ahead,
often more than he could obtain. He
intends raising thein in a barn-cellar
next year, as well as gathering those
in the fields.
The girl goes to the woods and
digs ferns, bring each root in a ball of
its own favorite leaf-mold. These
lovely ferns are in demand in thc
city, and good prices can bc obtained from them. Several dozen are
often dug before being ordered and
she places them in wooden boxes.
She carries them to her customers
in thc boxes, and also sets thc ferns
out for her customers without extra
charge, and by doing so, often makes
a success of the planting when otherwise might lie a failure. The
eliilil being among them so much,
kne.HS better the way they should
be planted, the proper soil and location.
These young people iln not have
much Ireiuble in working'np a trade,
as one person tells another and so
i en.
It is harder for city children to
earn money, but one little twelve-
year-old girl has succeeded in earning several dollars by making doll
hats and elothes. The hats are made
from felt pressed into the proper
shape, trimmed with odds ami ends
of ribbon, tiny flowers and feathers
for winter use, or from straw sewed,
pressed, and trimmed with flowers,
lace or ribbon for summer use. I
must explain hcr way of pressing the
felt into the desired shape, as seeme
other  little   girls   may   like   to   make
seiine. She lakes a piece "ef left

completed, as the crown will take

She uses line wire for the edge of

much taste in her work. The prices
range from three t.i fifteen cents, according lo size and quality of the
hats, and her reputation as a milliner is now made sej lhat the children

This may give ideas tei senile clever

Washington Irving's immortal
classic of the Catskills, perhaps the
greatest and most familiar of all
American short stories will be presented in its dramatic form by the
Isabelle Fletcher Players for the week
commencing Monday night. Fur two
or three generations this play has
been a favorite with English spea'.ing
audiences and has even been presented iu half a dozen foreign lands and
tongues. The eerie story of the
early Dutch settlements along the
Hudson in which Rip. thc village
drunkard and vagabond, driven away
from home by a shrewish wife meets
the ghosts of Henry Hudson's crew
in a lonely glen in the Cans' ill
mountains is plied with a mysterious
liquor and falls asleep not tei awaken
for twenty years is familiar to almost
everyone who professes any knowledge of literature. The return of
Rip to his native village, a broken
old man after his phenominal nap,
unrecognized by his old friends and
unknown to the younger generation
and his pathetic efforts to prove his
identity all for.n part of the warp and
woof of this remarkable play. The
humor of the simple ne'er do well
and the numerous ludricrous situations in which he finds himself never

Edna Aug. who i- appearing at the
Orpheum Ihis week with such marked
success tells an amusing story of her
tirst hunting trip in Arizona. They
had ridden feer mile's eever the blistering sands in search of game, when
she became fatigued and sought rest
among some large boulders, where
she dismounted and sat down to rest.
Suddenly she noticed her horse shy,
almost dragging her off her feet.
Scenting danger she immediately
mounted and away shot tbe pony.
When she gained control of him, she
returned to the spot, and there
perched on the same boulder upon
which she sat but a moment before,
was a gila monster, one of the most
hideous and lothesome of American
reptiles. I raised the 30-30 and bingo. A more gila monster. I was
frightened out of my wits. A short
while after my friends came back and
one of the gentlemen in the party had
something done up in a horse blanket which he hugged close to his
breast, saying: "Here Edna. I've
brought you a souvenir" and be laid
down a live gila monster, larger than
tbe one I had shot. Miss Aug is

was too ashamed to call attention to
the fact that she had killed one because it had scared her. particularly

and Burnaby were well represented.
Mr I \\ Weart, Mr. Eugene Cleveland, Mr W H Kent and Mr J.
Francis Bursill were present, and as
may be easily guessed, "Fella Penne"
stimulated to a large extent interest!
in ihe- proceedings, pleading, aa he always is eleiniK. for more color, poetry,
art   and    imagination    lee   leaven    the
commercial hf> oi e.nr busy city. The
"Vancouver Pageant" will d" ihi-
leavening, and will thus help, not
hinder, industry ami commerce'. As
Mr. Hursill eloquently pointed e.ut,
ancient as well as modern history
proves that the poet, the painter, the
actor and the musician are all factors j
in the development ot a city. When
Phidias was carving works of art
which the world has never excelled,
when Desmosthencs was stirring the I
heart with his oratory, and Plato was j
talking philosophy in academic groves
the men of Athens were not dallying with Phrync's in the shade, but
exercising mind and body in industries, tbe fame of which have come
down to us, and a commerce which
tilled ports with laden argosies���ever
coming and going in building up a
city the admiration of the world that
was,  is and  will  be.
Such festivals as ancient Athens
had. such pageants as now t?.kc place
and such as Vancouver has determined upon will set heads and hands at
work along right line-:., will stimulate
trade and encourage local patriotism
and pride.
A Vancouver poet���one of our leading   commercial   men   has   sung���
Vancouver, Gate of Empire Wide,
A future vast we prom'se you.
You  lie   in  smiling  grace  beside
The Western Sea of Blue;
Behind you  stretch  the ageless hills
With  untold wealth  to  gleam,
Their   mighty   grandeur   jewelled   oft
With  valley, lake  and   stream.
And as Mr. Weart so heartily insisted,
Vancouver,  means  and  always  mean
"Greater   Vancouver"���the   ambitious
and   enterprising  area  which  counts
the Fraser River as well as the e.cean
kissed   slmre   as   territory.
In the bright vocabulary of "The
Sunset City" there is no such word
as "fail," because thc energy, the experience, the wisdom, the wit, the
diplomacy, 'he self sacrifice and public spirit of "Greater Vancouver" can
be re-lied upon to co-operate in any
movement which shall redound to the
credit and help the progress of thc
eity and the province we love. To
ourselves, we saj to tluese who mean
iei have a pageant worthy of Vancouver, go aheadl Good luck to you.

St.  Peter's church by fire :
"My dear brethren,��� As y.eii have
1 -iiiitless heard, the parish church of
St. Peter's, South Vancouver, was
totally destroyed by fire, the act of
an incendiary, on Saturday morning,
October 18, 1913.
"Thc insurance on the building was
just sufficient to pay off the mortgage indebtedness. The congregation
of St. Peter's are not able, unassisted,
to replace the building and pay for
the site, the estimated ceist of which
is $10,000.00.
"The church was built just five
years ago, and never received any
help from diocesan funds either in its
erection or for the support of its incumbent, the Rev. G. F. C. Caffin,
who is receiving but a small stipend.
There is no rectory.
"There ".ere 125 communicants lasl

over 150 children on the roll, with a
regular  attendance.
"The diocesan authorities have always recognized the labor of this congregation and its loyalty to all diocesan undertakings.
"We request that in the churches of
the diocese, offerings be received for
the rebuilding of this church. For
this purpose we desire that a separate collection be taken at the door of
the church on the Sunday after this

plucked from the tree tops out this
way. He has consented to come West
and play hockey for Vancouver for
the sum of $1600 cold cash for the
season and a job that will not pay-
less than $100 per month. Quite reasonable from Roman's viewpoint. But
the Ottawa player should remember
that the commission was organized
to bring about a more sensible understanding between players and the
owners. In the past players received more than they were worth in
many cases and now it is intended
that the salaries shall be adjusted
and thc game placed on a sane basis.
We are sure to find a few players
dissatisfied with the new arrangement, but their demands should not
be taken seriously. Just so long as
they are treated fairly there is nn
room for argument and they should
let well enough alone. Ronan's demands will not be met nor will Lalonde get away from the Coast League unless a good man conies this
way in exchange for the boss advertiser in Canadian  sport.

South Vancouver and Civic Reform
Two recent addresses at the Vancouver Progress Club should make
Vancouver citizens think! More than
that it should lead to action in the
development of the home life of the
people in promoting the building up
of Greater Vancouver as a city of
homes, and getting the people out of
the crowded city rooming houses
where the conditions are not good
for mind, body or soul.
The address which Dr. Proctor gave
on tuberculosis and the equally illuminating address which Mr. \V. R.
Owen gave on "Parks and open
spaces" should make all South Van-
couveritcs glad and thankful that
there are still broad acres of land
and a glorious, open flowing, breeze-
kissed river to act as a corrective to
the foeted atmosphere���foeted physically and morally���of congested
city environments. Already has the
address of Dr. Proctor been commented upon by one who heard it
and  saw  its importance.
"Dr. Proctor made the amazing
statement that we are actually manufacturing this terrible disease of
"tuberculosis" at a greater rate than
we have facilities to handle it. He
further stated that during the three
months ending June of the present
year forty-two cases of tuberculosis
were reported from rooming houses;
places where���owing to the constant
contact in lifts, corridors and through
areas into which windows open for
both ventilation and light (I say light
advisedly, for the sun is unknown
there)���such diseases are most likely to spread.
Surely it should not require much
thought to grasp the seriousness of
such a condition, and surely when
grasped, thc average citizen can realize that he is neglecting his duty to
himself and the public, by allowing
it to continue for a single day."
This is sensible comment, and those
who agree with it should use every
possible effort to bring South Vancouver in line with those garden cities
where space, air and sunshine have
reduced the death rate and made
health and beauty the rule instead of
the   exception.
"We are all so enthusiastic about
out Greater Vancouver, but what
makes a city, or even a nation for that
matter really great? Is it not the
character of its citizens every time,
and where is character chiefly built?
Is it not in the homes of the people,
healthy, happy homes, where both
body and mind can expand freely on
right  lines."
Hear! hear! This is good talk, Mr.
liland, and every South Vancouverite
will agree with you that we have unquestionably, the making of a beautiful and prosperous city, with beautiful natural surroundings, and it is
the duty of every citizen, individually to see to it that it is filled with
heathy bodies and healthy minds.
Now is the time to tackle the weaknesses in our social system and eliminate them and the work must be
undertaken in thc spirit of William
Blake, who declared fight against the
evils of his city and said his sword
should not be sheathed until he had
made his spot of earth "a new Jerusalem."
Arrangements Under Way to Match
Local Boy With Former  Lightweight Champion
The rapid rise of Frank Barrieau,
the local boxer, to a place of prominence among the mat-wielders of thc
day, has given admirers of thc Vancouver hoy hopes of greater things
for this Canadian product of tin-
squared  circle.
Barrieu's meteoric flight into prominence is one of thc outstanding incidents of Coast ring history for
191.1. Practically known only to the
amateur   boxers  and   their   followers,
Barrieau's remarkable ihowin�� in his
bout with Leach Cross at the Minoru
Arena on Labor Day gave him an instant standing among thc little boyi
of the ring. All the more noteworthy
was Barrieau's introduction into the
select circle in view of thc fact that he
was one of thc principals in the ring
before the holiday crowd chiefly
through accident. It will be remembered that Labor Day was the original date set for the Ritchie-Welsh
bout for the lightweight championship of the world. A couple of weeks
preceding this bout, Welsh sprained
an ankle, necessitating a postponement of the big show. Not to disappoint the holiday crowd, Barrieau,
who was acting as one of the sparring partners of Willie Ritchie was
selected to go into thc squared circle as an opnonent of Leach Cross,
who then and who today is one of
the aspiring candidates for the lightweight crowd. What Barrieau did
to Cross on that occasion is of too
recent date to require any detailed
statement. Suffice it to say that after Barrieau had floored Cross for the
third time in the third round of the
bout, Cross went to his corner and
in reply to thc entreaties of his seconds to start something excitedly-
explained that he had not picked a
"boob" in Barrieau.
Since   this  memorable  bout,    Barrieau has passed into the managcreal
care of Bert Halstead, thc well-known
sporting figure of Vancouver and
Eburne, who has shown marked
ability in bringing the Vancouver
boy along. A couple of weeks ago
Barrieau took on Bums, who has
proved a hard nut to crack for many
of the top-notchcrs, and won easily.
In that bout Barrieau attempted to
get within the lightweight limit but
his weakened condition in that affair
will hardly lead his friends In believe
that he can train down to this point
and be at his best.
Arrangements are now being made
tn match Barrieau with one of the
leading lightweights now before the
public, the bout tn be pulled off some
time about the end nf thc mnnth at
the Municipal Hall, at Edmonds. Ad
Wolgast is one of the prospective
opponents and if the former champion can be secured it slinuld prove
a mighty lively engagement when
these two bozers clash. Wolgast, although deprived of the lightweight
course, continues to bc a great drawing card and local followers of the
sport will have a double interest in
the bnut in not only witnessing one
of the greatest lightweights of recent
ring history, but in having an opportunity of witnessing a further test
for  the  Vancouver  boy.
on conditions in this part of Greater
Vancouver. It is a splendid opportunity which they will no doubt
grasp to thc  full.
