A General View-
On Monday, September 7th, the Vancouver labor and industrial world will suspend operations for the day to take part in the big parade which will be held in conjunction with the Labor Day features at the Vancouver Exhibition.
It is going to be a great parade. This year the management of the fair will give space to the various floats whichappear in the parade on the exhibition grounds during the fair and after that, if it is the desire of the float owners the
floats will be stored in some one of the big fair buildings for the winter. M,r. F. T. DeWolfe, who is organizing the parade, announces that entries are pouring in. So that everything will be done on time and the parade ready. Mr.
DeWolfe wants to have everything in shape as early as possible. There will be special prizes for the various divisions of the parade. Special features, such as cowboys, range days, attractions from the Patterson shows, calliopes,
bands, clowns and so on will accompany the parade and do much to make it the biggest industrial and labor parade ever assembled in British Columbia.

These horses must he owned by

SIX   REASONS
WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF
CREOSOTED WOOD
BLOCK PAVEMENTS
ITS DURABILITY���Does not crumble or pulverize under the densest traffic; second only to granite
blocks
ITS EASE OF REPAIR���No difficulty being experienced in removing and replacing the blocks; no
expensive plant or skilled workmen required.
ITS SANITARY QUALITIES���Creosote being a
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 smooin surface absorbed
and muffled till the quiet of the dii< load is obtained.
ITS DUSTLESSNESS���Does not pulverize; the
heaviest traffic only pounding down the wood fibres
to offer the greater resistance.
ITS CLEANLINESS���Having a smooth surface and
being waterprool tt 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.

maybe hae kne>ckit Seeme e,' the con-
sate oot O' him.
Hooever, tae ceime tae the pint,
tae the subject that we discuss in
street an' workshop, in car an' store
I ���we hae it for breakfast, denner an'
tea, an' even in yaer bed wi' the news
laddies sheiutin' their "Extries"���weel
it's a terrible thing this war.
As faur as ��� ,ny livin' hem's concerned, it'i beyond their ken tae remember onything that wis o' sic faur-
reaehin' importance, that is sae world
wide ill its character, as this terrible
war that's bein' waged on the continent.
1 met a fellie I kent the ither day
while daunderin' along Main Street.
W'e passed the time o' day wi' wan
anither an' then we fell tae discussin'
the merits o' the pavin' work gaun un
along that street at the present time.
I kent him as a Soshylist in the
auld country; I minded Ilis oppisishun
tac the Boer War, an' in fact tae a'
kin's o' war except what he ca's the
"Class War"���an' what that is I've
never yet got the length o' unner-
Itaunin'i for whenever he starts his
Soshylist gibberish on me I hess my
temper an' him an' I saiparate. He
wan  time had  the impidence tae tell
me that  1 wis too d  thiek-in-thc-
heid tae unnerstaund Soshylism.
1 had been showin' him the utter
impossibility o' tryin' tae divide up
a' the money in the world���hoo that
wan hauf o' the folk wud be as puir
as ever hauf an hoor efter. That's an
argyment yae can aye frichten a
Soshylist wi', an' nine times oot o'
ten he wtiiina answer yae. He affects
a bieek e,' disgust an' maks eeff.
Hooever, on this occasion he let
oot at me an' had it no' been we wcre
guid freens I'd bae gien him a clout
on the lug.
'That's richt, Sandy." be says; "hoo
could they divide up an' bc ony the
better ee't. I'll bet yae a bob you wud
tak yuur share oot in whuskey an'
yae'il only be a bigger nuisance than
yae are the noo."
Hooever, that by the wey. as J wis
sayin', we were discussin' the pavin',
in fact we wuel hae discussed onything except the questyin that wis
upperniaist in oor minds���the war.
I w;= ' ;ei o' frichtened tae introduce
tlie subject in case he wud come awa
wi' some mare e,' his Soshylism. We
were on the verge ee' pairtin' when he
asked me if "there wis onything new."
I wis kin' o taken aback an' I askit
him what he meant.
"Weel." he replies, "hae yae heard
ony news o' hoo thy tleet's gettin'
on in  Ibe  North  Sea."
"Aw, is that what yae mean. 1
answers; "naw, there's naethin' new
I but yae can tak it frae me thai llie

"The Emperor's ne,' sic a dough-

Sandy, an' he has chosen tae go tae
war in the thocht that it'll unite ihe
German workers, stiHe the Soshylist

"Weel. emywey, they're gaun tae
get a blamed guid wallopin'," I says;
"maybe that'll '11 dae him mare guid

"Noo Sandy," he continues; "baith

becomes impregnated wi' ihe Soshylist doctrine yae can bet yaer sweet

a passin' fancy; he has tae bear scorn
frae his freens, an' oftentimes in the
upholdin' o' his doctrine hc suffers
loss in bis comfort an' too often in

"Xejo Sandy. I think I hae explained mysel tac yae sufficiently tae

"Geiod for you. Donald." I says;
"I didna think a Soshylist could talk-

continues, "efter the war is owre I'll

O statement is published elsewhere in this issue
and should make interesting reading for all who are
desirous of keeping in touch with the exact financial
status of the Municipality. The statement has been
prepared by Municipal Auditor P. L. McNeill, who
has done his work with the object in view of making
plain to the humblest ratepayer the various items dealt
with.. The report is creditable to the Municipal Clerk
and his staff, who, according to Mr. McNeill, follow
a system in their departments with a zeal worthy of
a staff in the head office of a Canadian bank. The
publication by the council of the semi-annual report
is a new departure which will be welcomed and which
bears out the spoken wishes of the reeve and councillors to so conduct the affairs of South Vancouver that
the business of the corporation may lie open to the
scrutiny of any ratepayer at any time.

LABOR, SOCIALISM AND THE WAR
THE war that is under way at the present time and
which threatens to involve both the old and
new world has been responsible for the question that
is eagerly canvassed both in the street and in the
Press: What is the labor and socialist attitude thereanent.
Those who follow the sayings and doings of the
labor and socialist leaders know full well the position
they take up in their rigid denunciation of war and
the evils which follow in its train.
They have at all times stood for international peace
and their endeavor in forming international labor and
socialist conventions has been in furtherance of that
object.
The education of the workers in the political field
with a view to their complete emancipation has been
their guiding star. With the ballot box as their weapon they have endeavored to line up the workers���
nationally and internationally���in the united resolve
that the only war they will uphold will be one which
will exterminate the evils of the capitalistic system,
namely, unemployment, over-crowding, disease and
the terrible conditions of drunkenness, debauchery,
white slavery, etc., which have in these conditions
their seed.
They are still unalterably opposed to war���that is
war of the diplomats and the lusters after wealth who
care not for widows and fatherless children if they
should be able to acquire more wealth (?) that their
sons, aye, and their daughters, be it said to their
shame, may fritter away at Monte Carlo or some
other "fashionable" place.
The labor and socialist parties, despite thc feigned
contempt and the ignorant onslaughts made on them
by certain sections of the capitalistic press have been
making more rapid headway these last len years than
ever before in the history of the world.
The reason is not far to seek. The schoolmaster
is abroad and no longer is education confined to the
privileged few.
No one realizes this better than the German Emperor.
An autocrat of (he autocrats, he has persuaded himself to believe that this onward march of the workers
could he quelled in the same way as a native rising in
a German possession.
The German working-class vote at every election
has returned an ever-increasing socialist vote which
has. of course, been diametrically opposed to thc
Kaiser's plans of an autocracy.
Some of the best writers and thinkers in the socialist movement are Germans bred and born. Thc
greatest exponent of that doctrine, Karl Marx was
of German blood.
The German worker no more wants war than does
his British brother.
How comes it then that the mighty armies and
navies of the two greatest powers in the world are
pitted against each other���man to man with ball cartridges, told to shoot and shoot straight.
The answer is obvious to any one who tries to see
a little under the surface.
The Kaiser and his advisers realize the internal discontent which threaten his incumbency as "the divine
ruler."
Thinking that he would unite thc Fatherland once
more he builds himself a big army and navy, and
then���trusts to patriotism to do the rest.
The labor men and socialists should be at one in
the endeavor once ana for all to put an end to this
lhe   Bottom   Dog,"  and  other    treatises    on
reform,   stirred   up  a     hornet's     nest     for     himself huge battkfie
five or six years ago when he came boldly out and!
declared that Britain's greatest peril was the German
Emperor.
Much water has flown under the bridge since then,
but never once has he moved from his viewpoint as|
he saw it.
The "Clarion," which boasted a tremendous circulation among the labor and socialist parties, lost subscribers wholesale because of the attitude he took up
in his endeavor to "wake Britain up."
Only thc other day he came out with the dictum
that what Britain wanted at the present time was
neither "Votes for Women" nor "Home Rule." but���
A Man!
Has the Man arrived?   Time will tell.
Be it said to "Bob's" credit that despite all the
criticism which he suffered at the hands of some of
his closest friends and collaborators in the reform
movement he lias never faltered in his purpose.
Perhaps the military training "Bob" went under
while serving with the colors in his youthful days gave
him an insight into the "military business" which
tiie ordinary layman was not obvious of.

EMPIRE UNITY
HE great Dominions of the British Empire have,
without a moment's hesitation or delay, shown
to the Motherland and the world, that they may be
relied upon to do their duty in any emergency. Far
off New Zealand has cabled an offer of an expeditionary force. Australia says "Britain has the united,
whole-hearted and patriotic support of all her available resources in men, money and ships." South Africa has signified hcr intention of aiding the Motherland. Canada, thc largest of the overseas Dominions,
is ready at a moment's notice. Official information
is already in the hands of Britain's war council to the
effect that Canada is prepared to place 20.000 men in
the field at the earliest possible date and 100.000 men

Truly we are living under one flag and a common
sovereign, and when a blow i.s aimed at llritain. it is
surely aimed at British Dominions throughout the
world. Britishers love peace. Britain's foreign minister, Sir Edward Grey, is exerting every possible
effori to prevent a European war. If all noble efforts fail, however, and the inevitable must be faced,
the enemies of Britain and of Britain's allies, must
reckon not only with Britain, but all the British Dominions. The calm confidence pervading Britain in
the right of hcr cause and the might of her power
permeates Canada. The jingoistic spirit is fortunately absent. No sacrifice on the part of this Dominion
is too great to uphold the cause of right and to defend, to the last, tjie Mother of Nations that has given
lo the world its priceless liberties and whose strong
arm has always affectionately embraced not only
Canada, but people of the Anglo-.Saxon race throughout the world.
W'e commend the activity of the Ottawa government. As in Britain, IO in Canada, there is no division
among the patriotic men eef our laml of whatever party
'I'o cavil at this time and endeavor to make party capital out of the war situation is trcasem politics and degraded journalism. W'e need make no special reference to Ihe source from whence the public might expect party capital making at this period. ��� Winnipeg

"But then a great reformer arises. He will clear
the world of the relics of monotheism and lay the

WHAT HO!
HON. Joseph Martin's reply to the question if hc
intended re-entering Canadian politics, leaves
room to believe that he will not be long out of Canadian public life. The impression at present is that he
will weld together the scattered provincial forces and
endeavor to dislodge Premier McBride, who as a railway gift politician, is almost in a class by himself.
Mr. Martin, should he re-enter the Canadian political
arena, will have the best wishes of hosts of admirers

WHEN THE CALL to the colors came, South Vancouver was not slow to respond. Several hundred
men from the district may bc found in the ranks of
the regiments at present garrisoned along the waterfront. Superintendent Graham, of the South Vancouver School Hoard, an officer in the Duke of Con-
naught's Own Rifles, was one of the first to don his
uniform and report for duty. Many workmen on
the Main Street paving contract threw down their
shovels and rallied to the flag. Many from the departments at the Municipal Hall left excellent positions to offer their services to the nation.

"This is a revelation of events of a universal character which must shortly come to pass. Their spiritual outlines are now before my eyes. I see floating

Il'lien the Men With Cans Get to thc Woods
Montreal Gazette
Frank Newman, an expert moving-picture operator,
is securing some unique photographs of wild birds
and their habits by concealing himself and his camera inside of a dummy cow. Mr. Newman had better finish his work before the autumn comes with its
open hunting season. If hunters occasionally mistake
men for bears and even rabbits, they are almost certain to empty a repeating rifle at a dummy cow in
the wilds in the firm belief that it is a bull moose or
a partridge or some other game animal or bird. The
operator is engaged at a dangerous job.

Reform From Within
Ottawa Free Press
The late Hon. Mr. Monk wrote that be had got
out of public life in Canada because it was rotten,
and a contemporary is surprised that his example
has not been followed by any of his colleagues in the
Dominion Government. Perhaps Mr. Monk showed
courage in getting out. but some people will think
that he would have shown greater courage had he remained in and endeavored to remedy a deplorable
situation. If all upright, honest and conscientious
men refuse to participate in public affairs because
they are "gangrened," what chance will there ever be
of an improvement?,

Thc Raincoat Ousting the Umbrella
New York Sun
Babylon, L.I., is advertised by Joseph Rankin, who
has not carried an umbrella for half a century, because the rainsheds "make thieves of otherwise honest people, and are a nuisance and a peril in the hands
of those who carry them." Mr. Rankin is not alone
in his aversion to umbrellas. The rising generation
that is amply equipped with raincoats has mighty
little use for them, and they are going out of fashion.

"()u every committee of thirteen there are twelve
men who go to meetings having given no thought to
the subject, and prepared to accept someone else's
lead. One goes having made up his mind what he
means shall be done. I always make it my business
to be that one." This is what Joseph Chamberlain
said of himself. He instanced a truth which is evident in every organization. Usually one man leads,
and the others because they are unprepared and iinint-
formed, follow in the rear.

Thc Parson at thc Prize-fight
Prize-fighting must be coming up again when the
Indianapolis Star is ready to defend the recent off iciation of a clergymiii at an English fight as master of
ceremonies. "Well, why not ? If the science of boxing, 'the manly art of self-defence,' has in these latter
days fallen into some disrepute, i.s it not very largely
because it has been left in the hands of men who were
not of the best repute, professional sportsmen���that
is, sportshien for gain���saloonkeepers and the like?"
An eminent American man of letters once observed
that an English prize fight was such a solemn and
dignified business that one almost expected to see it
opened with prayer. Are those palmy days returning?

Last year the Exhibition used a

squeezing and concentrating other
exhibits the management was able to
give as much as one-quarter of the

magnificent pictures, sketches, photographs, etchings, water color drawings and oil paintings which will be
shown at  that  Exhibition.
One collection of pictures tei be
exhibited is alone worth $75,000 and

MUNICIPALITY OF SOUTH VANCOUVER.
Gentlemen:
I have much pleasure in submitting herewith tha Half-yearly statement of the
affairs of this Municipality as at June 3(Hh, 1914.
In my Opinion, this Statement shows a true condition of the affairs of the Municipality.
I  wish particularly  to draw  your attention to the  following I
TAXATION.���We have only received roughly $15110.1)1) on account of 1914 Levy,
due to the fact that the rebate period has not yel been reached. We li3ve financed the
first half-yearly Expenditures with monies received on account of arrears of taxes and
Temporary Loan to the extent of $265,000.00.
ESTIMATES.���Ymi will observe that Expenditures on account of Current Rati'
mates have not  materially exceeded the pro rata appropriation for the first half year, and
it is anticipated thai  In several instances the Expendlturea for the next half will not
reach the amount  remaining to thc credit of the Appropriation.
CAPITAL ACCOUNT.���In regard to the advances made to Kingsway Account,
1914, the bonds coveting this Expenditure has been sold since date of June 30th. This
advance, therefore,  will  be liquidated .
i It is encouraging to know that  all outstanding  Bonds  and Treasury  Bills have been
liquidated since date of June 30th.
i I LIABILITIES. There are practically no liabilities outstanding against the Corporation other thiSn Local Improvement advances an authorized bond issue and Temporary Loan against  Current Taxes.
Yours faithfully,
