Mr. Stevens, M.P., Supports
North Arm Development
Any uncertainty which may have been earned by the circulation
throughout Snuth Vancouver of a rumor that Mr. II. II. Stevens,
Ml', recently declared from the public platform thai "it would be
years before any development of the N'orth Arm cnuld be expected
beyond the Eburne Bridge" "ill be removed by a statement irom Mr.
Stevens on the subject received by Harbor Commissioner EL C.
Mr. Stevens, in a wire tee Commissioner Hodgson from Ottawa,
absolutely denies ever having made such a statement and brands it
as ridiculous.   Further, he says i
"I have always held that the lirst step* -lienild be tee open OU)
iiieeutli ni the river, which would result in more rapid development
in upper teaches. Ihis is neiw being done and you deserve all possible support."
In lighting the policy e.f Snuth Vancouver granting the N'orth
Fraser Harheer Board fund- for preliminary work, several reports
have   been   circulated  and   statements   made,   founded   Upon,   in   many
cases, grounds even more absurd than those which gave rise t" the
deliberate  misrepresentation  of  Mr.  Steven's  attitude  towards  the

e.f the shortcoming 'if Burrard Intel

print the communication. The letter
addressed tee ihe editor of ihe "Sun"
follows, hut which tlu Sun" did not
see lit tn publish.
"Your esteemed paper nf April 4.
contained an article headed : 'Strong
Argument in Favor of Inlet,' giving
the Opinion of the Vancuuver Ship
masters concerning the grain elevator location, This rce|iiin-~ replying
to. not because these gentlemen have
not the right to their opinion, hut because nf tlie silly attempt while b<,,,~t-

without  knocking    their    neighbors,
tueire especial!)   when  they are in the
wrong. The people ot Vancouver
have been hypnotized by the beautiful lake which the Inlet forms ami by
the sublime scenery which IlirrOUnds
it���but Burrard Inlet is nol a good
harbnr. in spile of the fact that the
people "1 Vancouver have been telling each other that it is one. till they
really themselves believe it. One ol
the minor drawbacks is the too great
breadth across to North Vancouver.
Ymir article states 'It is much easier
and less risky entering nr navigating
intn an open harbor than to enter or
navigate a river, where you arc confined to a narrow channel, bei,.re- ymi
get tn your place of loading nr make
fast.' Queer, is it nut. that all the
harbors of thc world are up a river,
if there is a river? Queer, i- it not,
lhat the port of Glasgow i- not in or
at the Firth nf Clyde-, but eighteen
miles up the Clyde, which hail tn be
dug and dredged nut for ihe purpose?
Is it tint remarkable thai millions ol
pounds were spent fnr tbat purpose
when the Vancouver Shipmasters like
to navigate around in open water,
of course, it may be argued that
theise Scotsmen like to spend money
anyway, in fact, would rather spend
money than eat porridge, everybodj
knows that, sn that may be ilu reason why tlu- largest ship- in the v..riel
go up and down thc River Clyde, al
though niilv about 2-10 teel wide: I
wonder: Th- crazy mania Inr spend
ing money for costly dredging must
possess e.'ther people, as ports could
lie maele much easier at the c-tuar.v
.,f rivers and at less cost, than P.
dredge rivers for from 15 I" l��l mile-.
either that or the Vancouver Shipmasters arc wrong. Why nol move
l.iin.l.en down the river?

Proportional Representation Viewed
By Dr. W. A. McConkey
At South  Hill Monthly  Meeting  New  Plank  in Grit Platform
Is Explained
At the- monthly meeting of the
South Hill Liberal Association held
Tuesday night. Liberals were addressed bv Dr. VV. A. McConkey on the
subject of proportional representation.
Dr. McConkey went fully into the
history of the latest plank to the Liberal platform in liritish Columbia and
In his remarks showed a wide grasp
of his subject.
With the system of proportional
representation In operation, said Dr.
McConkey, it would be impossible tei
haw a parliament such as exists at
the present moment ill British Ceil-
unibia. Proportional representation,
he stated, would mean representation
in parliament of the minority as well
a- the majority. Il would mean the
banishing of corruption front election
contests and the smashing oi hidebound partyism.
Delegates to the Central executive
were elected at the meeting, the following being named Mr. D. G.
Campbell. Dr. McConkey, Mr   Carr.
Mr. Kenneth Creiss. in the absence
of the president, Mr. Burgess, occupied the chair. Mr. Cmss, by the way,

The glad Easter time was fittingly
observed in Cedar Cottage. Mother
Nature nobly did lier part, providing
sunny skies, song of birds, and bloom
cf beautiful dowers. Beginning with
the early sunrise praise service of thc
Salvation Army, the different churches celebrated the day with special services, furnishing appropriate music to
congregations which seemed to catch
the spiritual uplift of renewed and
beautiful life of which Easter is the
symbol. While Dame Nature established the precedent of new apparel,
many of her sons and daughters fol-
lnwed her example and helped to
make thc day cheerful and beautiful
by appearing in the charming attire
of spring.

Editor "Chinook" :
Sir,���Our old friend, the Rev. John
Pye, and his henchmen, will surely be
laboring in Divine travail at the latest
rebuke delivered by the Judges of the
Court of Appeal in regard to the
famous Sunday trading case. Smarting under the verbal castigalion administered by Chief Justice Hunter,
they succeeded in inducing the late
council to take the case to a higher
court, which was done on the advice
of Iheir deadhead solicitor, the result
being ihe further humiliation of the
zealous sky-pilots.
If these humbugging theologians
ready have the betterment of the human race at heart, it is high time they
lubricated their cosmic cyclometers
and realized the fact that persuasion
and not coercion is the only legitimate method for them to employ to
induce a reluctant humanity to conic
and bc saved. Why can they not live
and let live? They have the consolation of knowing that the next world is
theirs but this one is ours. In the
last analysis,- after Charon has ferried
us all across the Styx, the Rev. Pye
will experience a Divine joy as he reclines on the edge of a specially reserved cloud tuning up his harp and
watching the wretched Sunday trader* down below in the Gehenna fire
of Tophet, simmering on red hot
plates, to the strains of the Hallelujah Chorus!
Cheer up, reverend sir. This will
be bliss indeed. Your reward is yet
to come. Fareweel brother Pax vn-

Kings  and   Emperors  Unfortunately
Have  Exclusive Authority
Il was a habit of Napoleon to comment son.etimes brutally on the publicly worn gowns of the women at
Ilis   court   functions.
"Your d ess is soiled; go home and
change it," was the personally uttered
mandate of Napoleon to a Field Marshal's  wife.
To a Duchess he once said, so that
II around could hear it :    "Can't you
afford a new gown now and then? I
lave seen you ill that one three times
The victims did not enjoy it, but
the other women did; and perhaps
the Emperor was not less popular
because  of  them.
Albert, King of the Belgians, is
Napoleonic only jn his purpose when
he rebukes the wearer of a "slit skirt."
It is reported that at a recent Royal drawing room he whispered to an
official of high degree, who thereupon
went to a lady wearing a conspicuous  costume,  and  said :
"His Majesty noticed that you had
torn your dress up one side, and requested nie to escort you to your
carriage so thai you might return
home and have the damage repaired."
Of course, the woman went, with
bitterness in her heart, and of course
the world laughs.
A shrewd office boy once evolved
this bit of philosophy : "The boss's
joke is always a good joke, and it's
up to you to laugh at it."
A King's jest is always a good one.
The Passing Jest
A forlorn, hungry-looking tramp
called at the kitchen door early one
Monday morning, and was promptly
interviewed by Hi Ting. To him the
tramp related a pitiful tale of woe,
ending with a humble petition for
something to eat.
"Likee fish?" asked Hi Ting, in insinuating  tone.

We grow these by the tens of thousands, and every plant we senu out is a model of
good cultivation ; all well set with flower buds and shall give a wealth of bloom in
a few weeks.
The following we recommend for immediate planting: Wallflowers in six choice
varieties, every plant covered with bloom buds, 50c per doz.; Arabia, single and double
and variegated; Primroses, Polyanthus, Cowslips, Auriculas, Old Double Daisies,

The Agricultural Commission Missed
This Idea
The Maoriland Worker. :>. Xew
Zealand labor journal, i- busy exposing the system of "indentured" labor
which is now being used in regard to
the Introduction of farm labor to that
country from Britain. We have
grown accustomed tee the term "indentured labor" as applied to African
natives. Chinese coolies, etc., but it
is a new one on the Briton. Agents
engage >eeung farm laborers in Britain
win, are taken out to New Zealand
tinder engagements binding them to
certain farmers. They find on arrival
that out of their wages of "s 6d per
week for the tirst year the farmer
is empowered to deduct a sum of
0s 6d per week in return of the money
expended "ii their "assisted" passage.
and that ihey have te. w.erk tor twelve
months for eme shilling per week in
a country where the purchasing power
of a shilling equals abemt 4d in the
one ihey have left. There would appear to be a similarity between these
scheme- and many with especially in
connection with the importation of
lomestic servants The Maoriland
Worker is to be commended for giving   publicity   tee   faCtS   which   eellgllt   tee
be understood in   Britain, but which
generally adroitly concealed.
Start the Paving!

We understand the Council are
practically "keeping" a large number j
of families jn Semlli Vancouver. The
bulk of this money is te, our mind being wasted insofar that no return is
coming to the taxpayer who is finding  the  money.
NOW that the contract has been
signeel and passed by a majority of
the council would it not be more advisable to go right ahead and give
these men the work the;' wain and
need���would it not be saving money
in   the  long run?
Pay Up!
A contractor at Moose Jaw- engaged in building a terminal elevator has
been compelled by the Dominion government to pay up the difference between the 50c per hour fair wage
schedule and the wages he was paying, which varied from 25c up. Moose
Jaw trades council took the initiative
on behalf of the men. who were not
only thus underpaid but were having
2 per cent deducted from their wages
for workmen's compensation insurance. This also has had to be refunded.

A Scottish Funeral
Sir Archibald Geikie. who recently
received lhe coveted Order of Merit,
tells a very geieid Scottish anecdote
about a funeral in Glasgow, where a
stranger t,,,,k a seat in one of the
m,mining carriages. The other three
occupants of the carriage were rather
cur-,ni- to know whei he was, and at
lasl (ine1 eef them began t,e question
him. The dialogue went like ihis;
"Ye'll In a brither ,,' ihe corp?" "\,,.
I'm in,' a blither ,,' the Corp." "Weel.
ye'll be his cousin?" "Na, I'm ii"' a
cousin." "At onj rati ye'll be a frien'
o' tlie corp?" "Na, I'm im lhat either.
Ye see I've no been very wee! nia-el."
the stranger explained complacently,
"an' my doctor has ordered me carriage exercise, s.e 1 thocht this would
be the cheapest  way tei tak it"

In his rebuttal Seidel declared :
"Mr. Bede has adroitly avoided the

they touch everything and cover nothing."

WITH the ridiculous Sunday Closing Bylaw
enacted by the 1913 council declared to be a
positive joke by two of the highest courts in the land,
it is now up to the South Vancouver fathers to frame
a sane, practicable bylaw covering the observance of
the Sabbath Day in South Vancouver,
The new bylaw might be so worded as to cover tlie
���ninday activities of the Chinese gardeners resident
within the Municipality. These fellows find the Lord's
Day just as useful as any other for the cultivation of
the soil and they observe Sunday working in full force
in their gardens. On this day, plowing, seeding, hoeing, hauling and the various labors of the ranch are
pursued as strenuously as on week days. Some of
these Chinese even make so bold as to haul manure
on the public streets during those hours when decent
folk are on their way to church.
It might also be desirable to prohibit building operations on the Sabbath and the operation of Chinese
laundries  and  wood-working establishments.
If the South Vancouver councilWishes to have the
.-sabbath Day kept holy in the municipality, reasonable
men will agree that the larger trespassers should first
be punished. To sell a five cent loaf of bread on the
Sabbath to a hungry family might in many cases
prove to be an act of mercy.
Christ had no objections to a man hauling an ox out
of a mire hole on the Sabbath. There are, however,
extreme purists in South Vancouver, as in all other
localities, who would regard such an act as a gross
piece of Sabbath breaking.
WHEN Sir John A. Macdonald was a lad it was
considered a privilege to have the opportunity
of a public school education. It is stated that one
winter���hard Eastern Canadian winter, at that���
young Macdonald had to walk three miles to school,
barefooted. It is said that his way of doing the journey was to rtin like a deer until out of breath; then
he would sit down in a snow bank and while getting
new wind, warm his feet in his Scotch cap.    -
Many great Canadians and great Americans had to
fight like demons against poverty and misfortune for
the very privilege of being instructed in reading and
writing and counting.
South Vancouver leads Hritish Columbia in the
matter of school buildings, equipment and management.
It was sought to have the ratepayers endorse the
board of school trustees in tlie policy of borrowing
some $70,000 at this time to further perfect an excellent school system. A site for a Municipal high
school was needed, the trustees believed also new business quarters for the officers of the board, additions
to several of the schools and more land for school site
In these days of paved streets, two-minute car services and palatial public school buildings, the privilege
of a free education is more lightly regarded by the
rising generation and���if the verdict given by the
people of South Vancouver at the polls, Saturday, may
be taken as an indication���not too highly appraised by
some of the older heads.
SOUTH VANCOUVER men were the first to realize the possibilities of the North Arm of the
Fraser River and they were the initiators of the plan
to have the Dominion Government improve and develop the river. Years have been spent promoting the
interests of the North Arm in this work, the men
of South Vancouver have been foremost.
Today the Federal Government has taken up actively the development of the river. A Harbor Commission has been appointed and the Dominion Government is pledged to finance the dredging and widening
of the river and the transformation of it into a modern fresh-water harbor. All that the Government asks
is that the municipalities interested���if they really
want the river improved and millions of money spent
upon it���advance the harbor commission sufficient
funds to procure tentative plans upon whieh the Government will base its expenditure.
Point Grey, with an eye to business, hastened to
meet the Harbor Commission; the Municipality of
Richmond did not hesitate to make the necessary
grant to the commission of $7,500.

South Vancouver wishes to participate in the benefits
of a national harbor it would be well to deal diplomatically with the Xorth Fraser Harbor Commission

attitude at this time seeing very favorable to South
IT is unfortunate that the gentlemen of the Vancouver Hoard of Trade, the Mayor of Vancouver
and others from the metropolis should take such a
narrow view of the question of the harbor possibilities of the Lower Mainland. There were several delegations at the Winnipeg conference when the question of the site for the new Government elevator for
the Pacific Coast was discussed. At this conference,
the Vancouver delegation is said to have taken the
aggressive in creating a more or less bitter contro-
versey as to the respective merits of Iturranl Inlet
and the Fraser River.
The report submitted by the Vancouver committee to the Board of Trade this week was as follows:
"Burrard Inlet is the only place in liritish Columbia where all steamships and railways can connect
with the least possible delay and expense. The grain
trade of the West has yet to be built up, and it is the
consensus of opinion of shippers and grain dealers
that this development will be first made through the
regular liners plying to and from the coast of British
Columbia. It is. considered that tramp steamers and
sailing vessels will not lie a factor in this direction.
"Vancouver today is the British Pacific headquarters for vessels plying to all the countries of the
world. The total tonnage entering the ports of the
mainland for the fiscal year ending March 31, 1913,
amounted to 927,956 tons. Of this amount 912,267
tons wcre unloaded at Vancouver wharves, or a total
of approximately 98 per cent., or all but 2 per cent, of
the total tonnage for the mainland.
"It is no doubt evident to you that the grain passing through the proposed Pacific Coast elevator will
be carried in part cargoes. If the elevator were situated anywhere excepting on Burrard Inlet it will
necessitate a heavy charge against the grain in paying
extra pilotage, extra coal, extra harbor dues, and on
some occasions sick mariners dues, besides a greal
loss uf time, which means a great ileal to the owners
of vessels in making this extra voyage of from 40 to
5.0 miles.
"In fact, your delegation has received assurance
from several of the large shipping companies whose
vessels ply into Vancouver, that the erection of the
elevator on the Fraser River would he suicidal to the
success of grain shipments via the Pacific Coast, owing
among other reasons to the extra cost involved.
"Letters which we will bc pleased to read to you,
having direct reference to such conditions as above
outlined, are herewith appended, coming from the
manager of the Blue Funnel Line, which has a 28-day
service into Vancouver from Liverpool; the Royal
Mail Packet S.S. Company, which owns the largest
fleet of freighters of any company in the world; the
Union Steamship Company of Liverpool and Vancouver ; the Gulf Transport Line of Liverpool, the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and Balfour, Guthrie
& Company Ltd."
The Mayor of Coquitlam has made the following
statement in his report to the Board of Trade of that
"Our claims in this respect brought down on our
heads the wrath of Mayor Baxter, who seemed to resent any suggestion that the C. P. R. had terminals
of any kind in any other place than Vancouver. He
evidently is not yet convinced that although the passenger terminals arc in Vancouver, the freight terminals are in Port Coquitlam. A regrettable feature
of the meeting was the appearance of an acute sectional feeling in the presentation of the case for Burrard
Inlet by the Vancouver delegation. Not content with
placing before the commission the advantages of their
location, the Vancouver men proceeded to magnify
every real or fancied defect possessed by the Fraser
River. An endeavor was also made to support such
statements by evidence gathered from every conceivable source, and often made by the most irresponsible
persons on thc merest hearsay.
"It is indeed discouraging after so many protestations of friendship and of a desire to work in unison
for the development of the Lower Mainland, made bv
boards of trade, progress clubs, development associations and kindred bodies, that on this, the first occasion when the interests of the City of Vancouver and
the Fraser Valley come into opposition, so much selfish bitterness should be shown by the representatives
of the public bodies of the big city."
It would appear that the idea of co-operation among
the cities and municipalities of the Lower Mainland
is being lost sight of absolutely. The Vancouver gentlemen seem to be leaders in a movement to create
dissension among the various municipalities and seem
to forget that our interests are inter-dependent.
THE clean-up movement is a device which is being
employed in many cities of the L'nited States
ei banish dirt, promote health, amuse civic pride and
���timulate many people who need such stimulation to
nake tbetn iee that civic neatness is a good thing for
persons and property.
Its aim is tint only to clean up cities, but to keep
them clean.
Two of the spring clean-up campaigns for which
great preparations are being made are those which
will be put into effect in Cincinnati and St. Louis.
In each of these cities the newspapers are furthering
the enterprise and encouraging the citizens to be
Clean-up and civic beauty campaigns are linked together.
On this subject tlle Cincinnati "Times Star" says:
"The city is to be cleaned up, but coincident with
cleaning up there should be fixing up. Now is a good
time for the construction of window and porch boxes,
which are effective aids in giving color and tone to
dwellings and front yards. The present is also an
opportune moment to locate flower beds and to arrange for their planting later on."
In tlle matter of the proposed clean-up campaign
in St. Louis, the "Times" of that city says:
"If half that the scientific folk have accepted as true
is to be relied upon, a real thorough 'policing' in the
sense in which it is used around military reservations
���is a more momentous affair than a pageant, or an
election, or a whole series of national holidays. The
most dreaded diseases which afflict mankind are infectious or contagious, and the worst of them spring
from uncleanliness."
It is pointed out by many newspapers and other
promoters of sanitation that the safety of the most
sanitary sections of a city and of the scrupulously careful citizens depends in large measure upon there being no part of the city that is not kept clean.
This is a gospel which needs persistent preaching in
Greater Vancouver.
SOME ONE HAS complained of the stale, unwholesome odor to be encountered at the Municipal Hall.

because it raises the question���How can a municipal

is a person in law, and when it comes to going on junkets, spending money, entering into contracts, it is
not difficult to find the person, or at least the fictitious

that they had no mandate to represent the corpoiation

TWO INTIMATE friends of Sir Richard McBride,

morning smiles to their faces. Whenever and wherever they saw that head of silver hair, those long
striking lucks which mark Sir Richard frmn all other
men in the huge province, they conceived a joy in their
hearts. This time they were frankly pleased to encounter the premier, Stepping across they came before the seated figure, but the record fails to state that
they noted no cordial smile of recognition. If they
had, it might all have lieen avoided, for even then it
was not too late. Extending their hands, they offered
some engaging remarks, addressing their new-found
companion as Sir Richard. The silver-haired one
shook hands with them, all right, but he said: "[
fear you have made a mistake. I am not Mr Richard,
at all. 1 am Alfred Brown, senior member of the
candy-manufacturing firm of Brown and Longhurst,
London, England, and I am in British Columbia to
look over the business field." In the ensuing embarrassment the two intruders apologized and departed,
carrying away with them the knowledge, now firmly
fixed in their consciousness, that, as for silver hair,
facial features, and general build, there was in existence an almost exact duplicate of Sir Richard.

bahner, who has spent years to perfect himself

case, hearse, family carriage, use of chapel, removal charges, and all personal services and tell
you just what we furnish, naming every item.
In doing this, ottr object was not to offer offence,
but we think the public should have some idea
as to what a respectable funeral can be supplied
for. There is no mystery about ottr business, as
all of our goods are marked in plain figures and
are the same price to all.
We know that our competitors do not approve

our business is increasing every month. Now,
we live up to our advertisement to the letter. We
always have the goods in stock that we advertise,
and not one of our patrons has ever heard us
say that we were out of the goods we advertise.
We carry as large a stock of high grade caskets
as will be found in the city, and our prices are
lower than can be obtained from any other Undertaker. The volume of business that we are
doing is responsible for our moderate charges.
We have a large and well furnished Chapel,
for which we make no charge, and private reception rooms; in fact, a strictly modern building that vvas built especially for this business.
Our surroundings are quiet and dignified, and
we are in a position to supply the wants of anyone, regardless of their position in life. We have-

"The days of old,
The.- days, of gold.
"The days of '49.'
There was commotion in Roaring
Camp. It could not have been a tight,
for in 1850 that was not novel enough
to' have called together the entire
settlement. The ditches and claims
were nut only deserted, but "Tttttle's
grocery" had contributed its gamblers, who, it will be remembered,
calmly contributed their game . the
day that French Pete and Kanaka
Joe shot each other to death over the
bar in thc front room. The whole
camp was collected before a rude
cabin on the outer edge of the clearing. Conversation was carried on in
a low tone, but the name of a woman
was frequently repeated. It was a
name familiar enough in the camp���
"Cherokee Sal."
Perhaps the less said of her the
better. She was a coarse, and, it is
to be feared, a very sinful woman.
But at that time she was the only
woman in Roaring Camp, and was
just then lying in sore extremity, when
she most needed thc ministration of
her own sex. Dissolute, abandoned.
and irreclaimable, she was yet suffering a martyrdom hard enough to
bear even when veiled by sympathizing womanhood, but now terrible in
her loneliness. The primal curse had
come to her in that original isolation
which must have made the punishment of the first transgression so
dreadful. It was, perhaps, part of the
expiation of her sin, that, at a moment when she most lacked her sex's
intuitive tenderness and care, she met
only the half-contemptuous faces of
her masculine associates. Yet a few
of the spectators were, I think, touched by her sufferings. Sandy Tipton
thought it was "rough on Sal." and.
in the contemplation of her conelition.
for   a   moment   rose  superior   to   the
fact  that he had an ace and two bow-

It will be seen, alsee that the situa-
tieeti was novel. Deaths were by no
means uncommon in K.earing Camp,
hut a birth was a new thing. People
hael been dismissed lhe camp effectively, finally, and, with me possibility
eef return; hut this was the first time
than anyboely had been introduced ab
initio.     Hence.the   excitement.
"Vou-go in .there, Stumpy." said a
prominent citizen known as "Ken-
tuek." addressing one of the loungers.,
"('... in there, and sije what you kin

had been the. putative . head of two
families: in fact, il was owning.to
some legal informality in these proceedings that Roaring Camp���a city
eif refuge���was indebted to his company. Tlle crowd approved the choice,
antl Stumpy was wise enough to bow
to the majority. The dejor closed on
the extempore surgeon and midwife,
and Roaring Camp sat down outside,
Smoked its pipe, and awaited the issue.
The assemblage numbered about a
hundred men. One or two of these
were actual fugitives from justice,
some were criminal, and all were
reckless. Physically, they exhibited
Ho indication of their past lives antl
character. The greatest scamp had
a Raphael face, with a profusion of
blond hair; Oakhurst. a gambler, had
the melancholy air and intellectual
abstraction of a Hamlet; thc coolest
and most cottrageeius man was scarcely over live feet in height, with a so't
voice and an embarrassed, timid manner. The term "roughs" applied to
them was a distinction rather than a
definition, Perhaps in thc minor details of lingers, toes, ears, etc., the
camp may have been deficient, bul
these slight omissions did not detract
from their aggregation force. The
strongest man had but three lingers
on his right hand;' the best shot had
but  one eye.
Such was the physical aspect of the
men that were disposed around thc
cabin. The camp lay in a triangular
valley, between twee bills and a river.
The only outlet was a steep trail over
the summit of a hill lhat faced the
cabin, now illuminated by the rising
moon. The suffering woman might
have seen it freem the rude bunk
whereon she lay���seen it winding like
a silver thread until it was lost in the
stars  above.
A lire of withered pine-boughs added sociability to the gathering. By
degrees the natural levity of Roaring
Camp returned. Pets were freely
offered and taken regarding the result. Three to live that "Sal would
get througii with it"; even, that the
child would survive; side bets as to
thc sex and complexion of the coming stranger. In the midst of an excited discussion an exclamation came
from those nearest the door, and the
camp stopped to listen. Above the
swaying and moaning of the pines, thc
swift rush of the river, and the crackling of the fire, rose a sharp, querulous cry���a cry unlike anything heard
before in the camp. The pines stopped moaning, the river ceased to rush,
and the fire to crackle. It seemed as
if  Nature  had stopped to  listen too.
The camp rose to its feet as one
man!    Tt was  proposed to explode a
barrel of gunpowder, but, iu cemsid-1 male attention could be procured! Put

were, that rugged reiad that led to

I do mil think that the announcement
disturbed them much, except i'i speculation as to the fate of the child. "Can

The answer was doubtful._ The only

conjecture as to fitness, but the experiment was tried. It was less problematical than the ancient treatment
eif Romulus and Remus, and apparently as successful.
When these details were completed, which exhausted another hour,
the door was opened, and. an anxious
crowd of men who had already formed themselves into a queue, entered
in single file. Reside the low bunk
or shelf on which the figure of the
mother was starkly out lined below
the blankets stood a pine table. On
this'a candle-box was placed, ayd
witlrin it, swathed in staring red flannel, lay the last arrival- at Roaring
Camp, licside the ..candle-box was

harsh as it may seem, was the first
spasm of propriety���the lirst symptom of the camp's regeneration.
Stumpy advanced nothing. Perhaps
he felt a certain delicacy in interfering
with the selection of a possible successor* in office. But when questioned, he averred stoutly that he and

apostrophizing the helpless bundle

became apparent. He had generally

Only one incident occurred to break
the monotony of the curious procession. As Kentuck bent over thc candle-box curiously, the child turned,
and, in a spasm of pain, caught at
his groping finger and held it fast for
a moment, Kentuck looked foolish
and embarrassed. Something like a
blush to assert itself in his weather-
beaten cheek. "The d���d little cuss!"
he said, as he extricated his finger,
with, perhaps, more tenderness and
care than he might have been deemed
capable of showing. He held that finger a little apart from its fellows as
he went out, antl examined it curiously. The examination provoked the
same original remark in regard to the
child. In fact, he seemed to enjoy
repeating it. "He rastled with my
linger." he remarked to Tipton, holding up the I'.icmber, "the tl���d little

(Xeir did Kentuck. He drank quite
freely, and related with great gustei
his experience, invariably ending with
hi- characteristic condemnation of lhe
newcomer. It seemed to relieve him
of any unjust implication of sentiment,
and Kentuck had the weaknesses of
the nobler sex. When everybody else
had gone to bed, he walked down to
the river and whistled reflectively.
Then he walked up the gulch, past the
cabin, still whistling with demonstrative unconcern. At a large redwood
tree he paused and retraced his steps,
and again passed the cabin. Halfway down tee tbe river's bank he again
paused, and then returned and knocked at the door. It was opened by
Stumpy. "How goes it?" said Kentuck, looking past Stumpy toward the
candle-box. "All serene," replied
Stumpy. "Anything up?" "Nothing."
There was a pause���an embarrassing
one���Stumpy still holding the door.
Then Kentuck had recourse to his
finger, which lie held up to Stumpy.
"Rastled with it���the d���d little cuss,"
he  said, and retired.
The next day Cherokee Sal had
such rude sepulture as Roaring Camp
afforded. After her body had been
comtnitteed to the hillside there waa
a formal meeting of the camp to discuss what should be done with her
infant. A resolution to adopt it was
unanimous and enthusiastic. But an
animated discussion in regard to the
manner and feasibility of providing
for its wants at once sprung up. It
was remarkable that the argument
partook of none of those fierce personalities with which discussions
were usually conducted at Roaring
Camp. Tipton proposed that they
Should send the child to Red Dog���

been successful. "Luck" was the
name agreed upon, with the prefix of
Tommy for greater convenience. No
allusion was made to the mother, and
the father was unknown. "It's better." said the philosophical Oakhurst,
"to take a fresh deal all 'round. Call
him Luck, and start him fair." A day
was accordingly set apart for the
christening. What was meant by
this ceremony thc reader may imagine, who has already gathered some
idea of the reckless irreverence of
Roaring Camp. The master of ceremonies was one "Boston," a noted
wag, and the occasion seemed to promise thc greatest facctiousness, This
ingenious satirist had spent two days
in preparing a burlesque of the
church service, with pointed local allusions. The cl-.oir was properly
trained, and Sandy Tipton was to
stand godfather. But after the procession had marched to the grove
with music and banners, and the child
had been deposited before a mock altar, Stumpy stepped before the expectant crowd. "It ain't my style to
spoil fun, boys," said the little man,
stoutly, eyeing the faces around liim,
"but it strikes me that this thing ain't
exactly on the square. It's playing
it pretty low down on this yer baby
to ring in fun on him that he ain't g'
ing to understand. And cf there's going to bc any godfathers 'round, I'd
like to see who's got any better rights
than me." A silence followed
Stumpy's speech. To the credit of
all humorists be it said, that the first
man to acknowledge its justice was
the satirist, thus stopped of his fun.
"Bul," said Stumpy, quickly, follow
ing up Ilis advantage, "we're here for
a christening, and we'll have it. T
proclaim you Thomas Luck, according to thc laws of the United States
and the State of California, so help
mc God." It was the first lime that
the name of the Diety had been uttered otherwise than profanely in the
camp. The form of christening was
perhaps even more ludicrous than the
satirist had conceived; but strangely
enough, nobody saw it and nobody
laughed. "Tommy" was chistencd as
seriously as he would have been under a Christian roof, and cried and
was comforted in as orthodox fashion.
And so the work of regeneration
began in Roaring Camp. Almost imperceptibly a change came over the
settlement. The cabin assigned to
"Tommy Luck"���or "The Luck," as
he was more frequently called���first
showed signs of improvement. It
was kept scrupulously clean and
whitewashed. Then it was boarded,
clothed, and papered. The rosewood
cradle���packed eighty miles by mule
���had, in Stumpy's way of putting it,
"sorter killed the rest of the furniture." So the rehabilitation of the
cabin became a necessity. The men
who were in the habit of lounging in
at Stumpy's to see "how The Luck
got   on"  seemed  to   appreciate    the

It was wonderful how many treasures

inet of fairyland had before, it is to
be hoped that Tommy was content.
IU appeared to bc Serenely happy,
albeit there was an infantine gravity
abemt him, a contemplative light in
his round gray eyes, that sometimes
worried Stumpy. He was always
tractable and quia, and it is recorded that once, having crept beyond
his  "corral"���a  hedge e.f tessellated
pine boughs which surrounded bis
bed���he dropped ovet the bank i m
his head in the soft earth, and remained in that position for at least
live minutes with unflinching gravity.
He was extricated without a murmur.
I hesitate tee record the many other
instances of his sagacity, which rest.
unfortunately, upon the statements of
prejudiced friends. Some eif them
were not without a tinge of superstition. "I crep' up the bank just now,"
said Kentuck one day. in a breathless
slate of excitement, "and dem my
skin if he wasn't talking to a jay bird

pine boughs or lying on his back
blinking at the leaves above him, tee
him the birds sang, the squirrels chattered, and the flowers bloomed. Nature was his nurse and playfellow.
For him she would let slip between
the leaves golden shafts of sunlight
that fell just within his grasp: she
would send wandering breezes to
visit him with the halm of bay and
reisinous gums: tei him the tall redwoods nodded familiarly and sleepily.
the humble-bees buzzed, and the rooks
cawed   a   slumbrous   accompaniment.
Such was the golden summer eif
Roaring Camp. They were "flush
times"���and the Luck was with them.
The claims yielded enormously. The
camp was zealous of its privileges
and looked suspiciously on strangers.
No encouragement was given to im-
birgration, and, to make their seclusion more perfect, the land on either
side of the mountain wall that sur-
re.unded the camp they.duly pre-empted. This, and a reputation for singular proficiency with the revolver,

Mr. Lewington's Progressive Solution
for Municipal Problems
A proposal whereby the municipality could establish its uwn paving
plant at a minimum cost was outlined
t'i the "Chj.iook" this morning by
Mr. R. S. Lvwington, e,f South Hill
��� Briefly. Mr. Lewington proposes that
the municipality instead'ot purchasing lumber should establish a saw
mill on the municipal pmperty situated em the North Arm of the Fraser, near Campbell Avenue. Mr. Lewington considers it would not be necessary at first to erect permanent
buildings, which could be built from
time to time out of the profits saved
on the purchase price of lumber. The
municipality already owns a rock
crushers and bunkers. Sand and
gravel. Mr. Lewington states, could
readily be obtained at a low cost, and
all that would bc required for paving
operations in the way of machinery
would be a few cement mixers, which
Mr. Lewington considers could also
be purchased with the profits from
the municipal saw mill.
The labor required for grading, paving, etc., Mr. Lewington argues could
be obtained by a system of co-operation among the workmen of the municipality, whereby they would jointly
take Up contracts for certain sections
of roadways to be gradcel and paved.
Tools required and teams would be supplied by the municipality if necessary
on certain conditions allowing for
wear and tear. etc. I'nder this system, Mr. Lewington contends, the
municipality could grade and pave its
roadways at a minimum est and a
large number of municipal workmen
would be trained to give full value
for every dollar erpended.

The unusual circumstances of a
church being charged with fraud occurred this week in Supreme Court
Chambers before Mr. Justice Morrison, when lhe Royal Bank of Canada
asked the court to order an issue to
be tried against the South Hill Baptist Church of South Vancouver, under the Fraudulent Preference Act.
The allegation is that the church becoming insolvent, executed twee mortgages tee Mr. Gregory F. Goostrey,
one of its members, t.i avoid the bank
selling the property under a judgment.
The mortgages, which are feer $12.1)1)0.
are em the two lots un which the
church edifice stands.

this judgment was entered on April
1. Later we discovered that two
mortgage's, dated March 14, two days
before we got our judgment, had
been evecuted by the church in favor
eif Mr. George F. Goostrey, securing
a sum of $12,000. Frum vyhat we
have learned frum Mr. Woodworth,
solicitor for the church, we believe
that these mortgages were not given
for the purpose of obtaining advances,
but to secure indebtedness which had
but tei secure indebtedness. "We allege
that at the time of their execution
the church was insolvent and unable
to pay its debts, and that the mortgage thus given were a fraudulent
preference to Goostrey." stated Mr.
"I think it is a very reprehensible
practice for counsel to make statements based on letters written without prejudice. I never had any correspondence at all with Mr. Crosbie,"
said Mr. Woeidworth, who attacked
Mr. O'Neill's material as being inadequate to support his motion.
"I rlatly contradict the assertion
that I have made use of information
contained in letters marked 'without
prejudice' That ii a breach of professional etiquette I have never been
guilty of. The information was obtained by Mr. Crosbie by sonic other
means," replied counsel feer the bank.
The application was laid over for
further material to be seen by the respective counsel.
