What! Is British Columbia Doped and Gagged by Land-Grabbing Gun-Men,
Timber-Stealing Trusts, Townsite Burglars and Railroad Corporations ?
Opposition Head Discussed the Issues of the
Day and Condemned Without Qualification
The Record of the Present Government at
Victoria, Alleging that Body to be Absolutely
Subservient to Vested Interests
Not feir llie particular benefit of our
readers who may be inclined towards
Liberalism, but for the information
of all who tire interested in the welfare of the Province of British Columbia, we print herewith the speech
of Mr. H. C, Brewster, leader of tbe
Opposition, delivered at a banquet
tendered him hy followers in Vancouver  Friday night, last week.
Mr. Brewster, who was received
with   loud   cheers,   said :
"I would be ungrateful indeed wcre
I insensible tonight of the high honor
you have paid the position to which
1 have been elected. I realize probably as few others can what it is to
have warm friends, both personal and
political, and 1 can tell you that tonight I do feel thai I would certainly
be a most ungrateful wretch wcre I
not deeply sensible of this high honor.
Those here tonight, who have gat In-red ill this, the greatest centre of population within the province of British
Columbia, are keenly anxious, not
particularly lo hear him who has
heen elected leader of llle Liberal
party and to hear his oratory���because that i.s not one of his strong
points���hut that they might hear what
has heen evolved ill the minds of the
Liberal party, which in the long run
is geiing to tend to thc benefit of the
province   of   British   Columbia,
"Among the ranks of the Conservative party we have had orators, especially when you take into consideration the head of that great party
within the province, who have pa--eL<l
up and down, and with flowery language have told you very many things,
have placed some of their important
questions before you, talketl on all
four sides, and then left the questions
unanswered, and it is possible that
yon are a little hit tired of oratory of
that nature, and that it would he- becoming in one who wishes really to
dee something to talk straight business,
1 believe what you like to hear are
plain statements from well-intentioned people who have as their object.
and only object, not simply thc advancement   of   the   Liberal   party   of
British Columbia, but the betterment
"f the whole people of lhe province,
"In the first place 1 want lo make
a little statement because I like to ln-
fair. Possibly I would not be iu the
position I am iu tonight if ymi did
not think 1 liked fair play. I want
to make ihis statement because I believe, and I give them credit, thai
ilure are tueinhei.- of iln Conservative party in the province of British
Columbia  who art  jusl as firmly con
vinced that they arc right as I am
that they arc not in matters of policy.
I want to treat them leniently and
in doing so I must in fairness to them
have an alternative, because I do not
believe that the administration in
charge of lhe affairs of this province
at the city of Victoria are true Conservatives. That is a pretty big stale
Mr. Brewster admitted that there
was truth ill the statement that the
Liberal party was a party of ideals,
but he joined issue with the statement lhat they wcre an impractical
party. They had been decisively beaten at the last election in the province
and the reason was not far to seek.
Referring to the birth of the Conservative parly in liritish Columbia he
could tell them that there never was
in the history of political parties in
the Dominion of Canada a more outrageous hit eef trickery than there was
at the birth of lhe provincial, so-called.   Conservative   party.    (Cheers.)
"There sits on my right hand,"
said Mr. Brewster, "a man who helped put oul of business the coalition
government from power and who was
promised a scat in the cabinet, but
who was turned down by that political trickery. This is a fact and should
not be allowed to pass."    (Cheers.)
Mr. Brewster proceeded to deal
with the methods that had heen employed by the Conservatives to obtain votes in the rural districts hy the
appointment   of  road    foremen    or
bosses and the Inlying eef thc veetcs of
the men who had geene out to settle
on the land, hut who were unable to
keep their families and had to accept
jobs from these road foremen and.
therefore, bee-:,me members of Conservative associations before they
were- employed. That, he said, was
the most atrocious manipulation that
had ever taken place in any province
in the Dominion.
"I do not come here- tonight," he
declared, "anil I hope 1 never will
come here for the purpose of criticizing the methods that have been
adopted hy the administration in Victoria to keep Libera! representatives
from the floor of thc house, hul I
Come here with a much higher eibject. I come lure advocating the
nieesl earnest effort on tin- nart eef the
great Liberal party to come in and
help us redeem litis province fie,in
the awful condition it is dropping
into.    (Cheers.)

Though there are Many Negative Arguments,
Mr. Brewster, the Leader of the Provincial
Opposition, Declares This to be the Case,
And Is Cheered by Three Hundred
Mr. H. C. Brewster, the Liberal leader in British Columbia, is
a bald-headed gentleman who wears spectacles, sustained in their
place cn a good, big ncse by gold wires that pass over the ears.
He hrs not the stoop of a Laurier, nor the height. Being inclined
to be squarely set in body as well as in mind, he wears a low collar
and a tie that any quiet-minded business man might wear. His
hair was red and his eyes are blue.
One would associate the name Brewster with millions, but the
leader cf the Liberal party is not one of the rich plutocrats. He
is one of the people and is rich only in sincerity of purpose, honesty
and integrity, good health and fighting capacity.
That Mr. H. C. Brewster should go forward and pit himself
against the great McBride, is regarded by some of the big interests,
possibly, ?.s the worst kind of impudence. Brewster goes armed
wilh a sling-shot���and he will meet the giant and fight with him.
He will go up against a man armed with a mighty shield in the way
of a harnessed press and with the heaviest and most deadly instruments of political warfare known to modern times.
Brewster's fight will be feir the people as against the men in
this province who wax fat yet work not���as against the thieves
who are holding fr-m the people of British Columbia tbe forests,
the fisheries  lh; mines, the farm lands, the gilts of the Living God.
erals wlm -urn mild inc. What is the

latieni as will give lo the masses the

(Cheers I. That is the position the
Liberal party in the province 'ef British Columbia is taking and I claim
that every man wine is honest ami i-
a gooel citizen can well subscribe to
that creed.
Dealing with the methods that the
Conservatives had adopted t'e wipe
emt iln- opposition at Victoria, he re-
ferred t" the policy that was followed in regard tee thc timber, and stated
that although they were told some
eight eer nine years ago that there
woulil he shortage 'if limber, the Mc-
I'.ride government permitted an indiscriminate -taking eef the forest
wealth which belonged tei the people
and neet tei him with the resull that
today from 9,000,000 t" 12,000,000
acres of the best timber wa- nm being used, hut was being hehl ley holding companies while iis value was increasing day by day. so that they
might reap the benefit, nut manufacturing it. nut making lumber cheaper
for the construction of their homes,
nut giving employmenl hut for a mere
pittance compared with the value of
the timber, they had allowed this
timber to he held l"r an advance
which rightly should have gone t"
the   treasury   of  the  province.

Present Campaign of Abuse
Not Likely to Help the District
They Tear Down; Yet Build  Not   They Condemn  Everything
Municipal; Yet Suggest Nothing to Improve Conditions
I By a Journalist With Many Years Experience in Municipal Affairs)
The campaign conducted by the
South Vancouver Voters' League for
municipal government by a "business
council" would be laughable were it
not so pitable. At a recent meeting
held at Cedar Cottage twenty-two
persons attended. Two only are said
to have been residents of the disirict,
twenty being members of the Voters'
League from the western section of
lhe   municipality.
This little band of enthusiasts arc
"stumping" the municipality, passing
resolutions, and endeavoring to make
believe that there is general dissatisfaction  with  the  present council.
The curious thing is that although
the various speakers denounce tbe
councillors as incompetent and cry
almid for a "business council" they
arc extremely careful to avoid mentioning the men whom they propose
shall form their "business council."
True, Councillors Thomas and Mil-
Jar have received the blessing of the
league; but with those exceptions
Messrs. Gold and company persistently refrain from mentioning the
"business" men whom they propose
s'iall take tbe places of the present
Surely the ratepayers arc entitled
to know who these business men are
that the Voters' League have in mind!
Judging by the samples of talent produced so far hy the league at its var
ious meetings public experience is
woefully lacking among its speakers
and their remarks bristle with ignorance of municipal  affairs.
Take for example the cry for a permanent water supply and sewerage.
and the attacks made hy various
speakers upon Water Superintendent
Mullett. One speaker recently boasted that it had taken him only a few
minutes to realize what it had taken
Mr. Mullett four years to find out.
There egotism and ignorance combined to brand the speaker as one
who rashly spoke of things he did
not understand.
Hc failed tei take cognizance of the
fact that for years the water superintendent has urged upon thc council the absolute necessity of securing
a Permanent water supply from Seymour Creek. He failed to mention,
because he probably did not take the
trouble to find out, that the water
superintendent in laying mains has
done so upon a systematic plan whereby when Seymour Creek water is
available it may be turned into the
existing mains with a minimum of
labor and expens* That, in fact, the
whole waterworks system has been
planned and laid out with a view .ef
eventually securing a permanent supply of water from Seymour Creek.
The speaker failed te> recognize the
fact  that  the  council  has been  ncgo-
iating for Seymour Creed water for
the pasl two or more year-; thai in
the meantime water was urgently
needed, and thai the water superin
tcudcni wa- compelled t" l""k elsewhere f'er a temporary supply.
The speaker failed t" give Mr. Mul
letl credit  leer the fact lhat In- has se
cured   a   temporary   supply   "I    g 1
water iu sufficient quantity tee provide
every householder with an abundance
feer domestic purpi sis. lie failed also
lo give Mr. Mullett credit for lhe facl
that in consequence of the temporary supply tlu- payments t" the City
of Vancouver fm water have been
reduced from thousands of dollars
each month to a few hundreds in
spite of the great increase in population.
These omissions on the part of thc
speaker in question brand him in the
minds of all honest thinkers as being
either a seeker after Mr. Mullett's
po-ition or a boastful person speaking of matters be knows nothing
about, And what applies to one
speaker for the Voters' League applies to all. The very .men wine are
agitating for a business council demonstrate their own ignorance of municipal matters every time they appear
on a public platform.
In their agitation for a sewerage
system they ignore the fact that the
Provincial Government has appointed a Greater Vancouver Sewerage
Commission to control the sewerage
system of the entire peninsula, and
that for South Vancouver to go ahead
with a sewerage scheme before thc
Commission has adopted a system
weiuld be sheer madness.
Such matters as these arc apparently too trivial, too unimportant for
consideration by the so-called 'business men" of the South Vancouver
Voters' League. The pity of it is
that ratepayers can listen to and applaud   their  futile   vaporings.

The minister of labor, Hon. W. T. |
Crothcrs, after a spectacular nip to'
the Pacific coast, in company with his |
law partner, Samuel Price, ol St.
Thomas, to investigate "and settle"
the strike of coal miifcrs em Vancouver Island, is evidently non-plusscd at
the complete failure of his efforts at
mediation. Not knowing what to do
next he is now just resting and leaving any further action to the provincial authorities. Sei far as his department is concerned, the only announce
ment made in connection with the
strikers' riots at Xanainio is that no
definite further action . is contemplated. Although Mr. Crothers maele
a personal visit to the scene of trouble last month, he is getting his law
partner to prepare an eifficial report.

is much i" be done.
I am confident you will enter into your wmk with increased fervour and
renewed strength in consequence of ymir vacation.
The volume of trade over the whole Dominion maintains a good average Imt
in certain imrtr- there is a trade depression which brings with it it> usual quota oi
hardships, 1 am pleased, however, that the particular districts which arc feeling
such depression arc facing their difficulties with the- true Canadian spirit ami
enquiring intn the economic causes, with a result which will he tn the ultimate
good in the community and the consolidating of the commerce generally throughout the Dominion.
You were not ahle. in your last session, to deal effectively with Xaval Defence.
To prove to the world generally that Canada has an united front in regard tei
thc general principle of Naval Defence, and only differs as to ways and means, a
Royal Commission will be appointed to arrive at an equitable compromise satisfactory to all and maintaining the high traditions of the Empire.
The Revenues continue to expand ami the bountiful harvest gives promise
that the expansion will be sufficient to compensate any temporary trade depression.
You will have brought before you Legislation governing Immigration.
While not discriminating unfairly against any peoples, you will only encourage
those best adapted to the conditions peculiar to this Dominion, and such as will
develop into citizens worthy of your highest social aspirations.
I have again to remind you of the necessity of making adequate provision
for the agetl in your midst.   This I trust will receive your immediate attention.
A measure will be placed before you for your earnest consideration, having
as its object the prevention of strikes and the regulation of labor disputes, obviating the possibility of such regrettable disturbances as have occured in the
western parts of this Dominion. Such a measure to be acceptable and effective
must deal equitably with the employer as well as employee.
I have pleasure in congratulating the Provinces on their continued activity
in facilitating and developing educational matters. The recent inauguration .of
the B. C. University is a proof of the Western tendency towards the highest
forms of Education.
A measure will be put before you having for its object the encouragement
of a technical education, which shall include agriculture, and enable the children
of our Public Schools to bc more effectually equipped for tlie useful vocations for
which they show aptitude.
I recommend to your attention legislation which shall circumscribe the over
speculation in farm lands, to prevent the unwarranted inflation of prices beyond an economic limit. Legislation is needed dealing with many phases of the
Land question with the incidence of taxation, the Bankruptcy Laws, the disabilities of women, the grievances of women under B. C. Laws, and other important questions,
I invoke the Divine blessing upon your deliberations.

Canadian municipalities is going to make it easier fo:
those municipalities to develop municipal ownershij
of public utilities, it is only natural that the British
investor will draw his purse strings tighter, lie ha
the reputation of being a very good business man.
SIR RICHARt) McBRIDE, when a committee from
the Vancouver Board of Trade urged upon him
the necessity of changing his land policy so that the
man who works would have a chance, hedged, and
stated that it would he an outrage to endeavor to secure the development of farm life in this province
without first building railroads, that the prospective
settler might reach the land in comfort.
The garden of this great Dominion lies probably
in Western Ontario. There we find farm life at its
highest point of development. Had there been on
that committee from the Hoard of Trade men who
were retired in Western Ontario, they might have asked Sir Richard if his plan is based upon the early
history of the development of the farming communities of Eastern Canada.
When Sir John A. Macdonald was horn, there were
no railways in the Province of Ontario. When the
great Sir John's father sought the land in the vicinity
of Kingston, he did not ride to it in a Pullman car.
Old man Macdonald walked from Quebec right up to
the farm upon which he settled.
In good old Glengarry we find a Highland .community founded a hundred years ago by men of brawn
and muscle, and who made the trip from the wharf
where the immigrant ship landed them on the Atlantic cuast, by foot and by boat, packing upon their
shoulders the few personal belongings left over after
tbe grasping English landlords in the Xorth of Scotland had done with these worthiest of pioneers.
That country between Niagara and the Detroit river
was settled more than a century ago by English and
Scotch immigrants who needed not railways to reach
thc land���settled by men and women who were forced
to undergo the most rigid hardships any people ever
One hundred years ago, the railroad corporation
had not heen born, anil organized capital was a quantity that did not count for much. One hundred years
ago. the grandfathers of some of the capitalists who
are grabbing today the farm lands and natural resources of llritPh Columbia were engaged with the
axe in far away Ontario, clearing up a few acres of
ground to make rude homes for their families. In
those days, the luxury of railroad accommodation was
not known, hi those days, the townsite graft bad not
been invented.
WHILE it is possible thai for the present, financial con, lit ions will effectually block any efforts the South Vancouver council may make in de-
veloping a scheme of public owned public utilities, tin-
fact i> being universally recognized ihat in lhe municipal ownership of all public Utilities���and in thP
policy alone���will the taxpayer lind relief from the
oppression of big business.
London isn't loaning much money these days in
Canadian municipalities. The big gUllS over there
have been making lengthy and serious statements lo
the effect that the west has been over-borrowing and
tha,! there must be a retrenchment made.
One of these big fellows in particular, Mr. Home-
Payne, who is a conspicuous figure among the men
who control the B. C. E. R., was most pronounced
in his statements along the line of Canadian municipal extravagance in past years.
The London interests who control Canadian public
utilities also control the sources from which Canadian
municipalities must borrow money. A successful
street railway system in a growing Canadian city affords a greaj deal more profit to the investor propro-
tionately than loaning freely large sums of money to
the particular city wherein such street railway system is operating.
Probably there is some truth in the declaration of
Reeve Kerr that the money interests of London are
shutting down on  Canadian municipal  loans  for a
more serious reason than that of alleged reckless ex
penditure of monies borrowed in the past.
In Calgary, Edmonton and Regina they have taken
up the policy of public ownership of public utilities
with a vim. In each of these cities has public ownership proved a boon and blessing. So successful has
it proved, that the extension of the plan in Western
Canada is likely to make inroads on the private preserves of certain British capitalists. The British
investor has never lost a dollar on Canadian munici
pal investments.    If continued loaning of money tt
Sol TII VANCOUVER'S council for I'M.? will a
least go down in history for having initiated tin
most progressive legislation ever attempted imt onl;
in South Vancouver, but in any city in the Province
of liritish Columbia.
Following the launching of the policy of public own
ershlp of public utilities and the purchase by the municipality of harbor frontage, the council now has he-
fore it the plan to do away absolutely with the ward
system, the initiating of a Board of Control system.
ind incorporation.
.Municipal ownership, purchase of harbor frontage for industrial purposes, abolition of the ward
system and the election of a Board of Control, are
items that should receive the full and enthusiastic endorsement of every right-minded man paying taxes
into tbe coffers of the municipality.
As regards incorporation, this much can hc said.
South Vancouver is being bedevilled by the conditions under which the district is governed at the
present moment. The B. C. .Municipal Clauses Act
is probably lhe most archaic piece of law that was
ever invented to irritate the mind of a man trying,
as a public official, to do tbe best he knows how for
the people who have elected him.
There must he a change.
Councillor Charles Stuart Campbell is to l.e congratulated upon having come forward with the incorporation hill. He is to he admired for at least showing more bravery in thc matter than any municipal
official since the time Reeve W. A. Pound brought
lown an incorporation bill in 1910.
Whether incorporation is the only solution for the
problem that South Vancouver faces, is a question
that cannot fairly be answered at the present moment.
If we have to choose between present conditions
ind incorporation any right-minded individual would
he very likely to support incorporation. If we have
to choose between present conditions, incorporation
antl annexation then we have a different problem he-
fore us. If we have to choose between present conditions, incorporation, annexation or improvement of
present conditions through amendments to the .Municipal Clauses Act, the case becomes more complicated.
One thing is sure. South Vancouver'cannot healthily proceed under the present conditions of things.
W'e have a district of 40,000 people operated under
the same scheme as an ordinary township in the hack-
woods of Quebec.
South Vancouver at present has no status. South
Vancouver at present has no representation in either
the Provincial or Dominion Houses of Parliament.
South Vancouver has at present to bow the knee
to one Bowser to a very large extent. This is not
well for South Vancouver.
Better  incorporation  than  present  conditions.
Councillor Campbell's introduction of an incorporation hill will have a'good influence, if it performs no
other service than to bring out a good healthy discussion of the subject.
ft'T'HERE are more things in heaven and earth,
1 Horatitts, than arc dreamed of in your philosophy," said the poet. Even so. although it often takes
time to lind them out. The old water witch or hazel
gad, by which some old hayseed farmer located a well
when till other attempts to lind water had failed, was
long the contempt  of wiseacre scientists .-11111 others,
who laughed at it as superstitious.    But it did the
work in the right man's h md-
A litlle while ago. al a congress of German scientists held in Berlin, the water witch came into its own.
Says the repnri: "In the presence of geologists and
mineralogists, Mine Inspector Scharf with a hazel
stick located a spot where water would be found in a
large orchard, where repeated boring batl failed to
strike water. Borings were made Saturday at the
spot indicated by Scharf with his divining rod, and
a plentiful supply of water was found."
We wish to bring this fact to the attention of the
people who so hastily criticised the South Vancouver
council for employing the local water wizard. Mr.
Zimmerman, iu locating wells in the municipality.
MANY AND VARIED are the problems placed by
subscribers before the editor of the "Chinook" for

that very interesting subject, "Babies."
"I would like to know when and how to shorten

would kindly give me advice on the subject, I shouhl
be very much obliged. He gets so dirty, you know,
and it's such a job to keep him clean."
"Madam," we said, "we fear that any information
as to that might be given you elsewhere in a more
comprehensive manner than we are capable of." We
were, to say the least, just a trifle embarrassed.

"Bring them settin'-poles," said the
sheriff soberly.
They gave Skeene little peace for
two months. Week after week a
string of canoes passed the swift
water under the lirst and second wing-
dams, disembarking a tile of riflemen.
Week after week the distant flash of
a paddle startled the deer at sunrise
among the lily-pads.
Once they saw Skeene for a moment standing in the stern eif his
canoe. The canoe lay at the mouth
nf the Little Misery, that dead stretch
of water and dead-fall, winding
through the bog to the southward.
They gave chase, trailing Skeene's
canoe by the wake bubbles until they
ran  plump into quick  water.
But the Little Misery is a Strange
stream draining a strange land, and
there, in that maze of cuts and channels, of "logans" and quick water, eef

Warning to Housewives
DON'T start your fire with parafine or kerosene.
DON'T treasure up old rage, paper or rubbish of any sort under stairways, in attics or basements, or anywhere in your home.
DON'T put ashes in a wooden box or barrel, or close to walls or
DON'T neglect to overhaul your stove pipes once a month; see that
your chimneys are swept at least twice a year.
DON'T use gasoline for cleaning purposes in the house. It is more
dangerous than powder; powder will remain where you leave it,
gasoline vapor is shifted by air currents to all parts of the house,
and being heavier than air, lodges in out of the way corners
making trouble when you least expect it.
DON'T place your stoves or pipes within twelve (12) inches of any
wood or partition.
DON'T forget that ninety-five per cent, of our fire losses are caused
by poor and dirty stove pipes, and the placing of stoves, pipes
and furnaces too close to wood work.
DON'T have matches where they can be gotten at by children; keep
them in a covered tin.
REMEMBER, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.

If the average woman were ;i-ki-el
what quality she une-.! desired in the
man ihe li to marry -lu- would probably answer without hesitation, "Consideration." In this ilngle word lies
the whole secret of marital happiness. Built upon the firm foundation
of consideration and kindness in the
little, as well as the liin things of daily living, happiness ia sure tee come
into the home t" find a permanent
resting place.
When a man and woman marry
they intend, eef course, tee build fur
themselves a home where love and
happinessi reign. Now, a home implies at least two perse ens, both working fen- the other's happiness. One
alone can do nothing, each has a
part tee play.
And the man's lies chiefly in being
kind and considerate to the woman
who has (jiven herself to him especially during these lirsl few months nf
marriage when they are adjusting
themselves to each other.
A man has many interests, a wife
but few. His life is made up of business, pleasure and sport, hers is cini-
lined tee a small circle surrounding the
home. And because her life is not as
l;i(? as his the man sheeiild make up to
the woman in love and consideration

Stenciling with Dye
Window curtains and door draperies decorated with colored borders to
harmonize with the room furnishings
are a new and practical use for dyes.
A  pattern  made  of glazed  cardboard
is used.   These come in conventional
or lleeral designs and can be made by
the ingenious home-maker. A border
of wild roses for the draperies in a
girl's rose room is charming. Grapes
for the dining-room curtains and side-
hoard cover is pretty and appropriate.
This work is done simply by going
over the openings In the pattern with
a soft brush dipped in dissolved dye.

The street railway system was first
put in operation at the time the
Dominion Fair was held in Regina.
July, 1911. Al the time there were but
seven or eight miles e.f track. By the
end of lhat year W/t miles of track
had been constructed. During last year
but very little track was laid, only
about fifteen miles all told being in
operation at the end of the year. During the present year about fourteen
miles of lines will he laid, making almost thirty miles of track ill service
by the end of the year. The rolling
stock, too, has been increased considerably during the past year, over 30
cars now being in operation in addition to flat cars required in construction work.
Another way in which the industrial
interests of Regina are likely to benefit as a result of the street railway
system being owned by the city is by
shunting and inter-switching of cars
of freight by street cars. The city has
not definitely decided to shunt all cars
.if freight within the city, but there is
every likelihood that such action will
be laken within the near future. Considerable discussion has already re-
siiltc'l with regard to the matter.
The street railway, though but a
big baby utility, as it were, is already
paying a good dividend, and it is expected during the present year the surplus of receipts over expenditures, including debenture payments and interests, will am,mill to about $30,000.
As was t" be expected, the cars were
operated at a hess for about a year
The loss in 1911 was considerable. For
about five months in 1912 the city
continued to lose money on the operation of the cars, but at the end of
"lie year's operation the city was able
in announce that the cars were morel
than paying their way. The deficit
|was gradually wiped out. and at thej
present time then- is a considerable
margin  e,i earnings over expenditure.!
Tin- street  railway is the- baby util- i
ity of lhe three utilities owned by thej

Back to Incorporation Again; " South
Vancouver Must Control Own
Destinies," is Slogan of Council
(Continued from  Page 1)
had an incorporation bill framed
which was satisfactory to the powers
This bill may still bc enforced.
It is this bill that Councillor Campbell and his associates will seek to
have made law this year.
In 1910, when it was sought to in-
corpeerale South Vancouver as a city,
interest was very keen in a contest
whieh was lost by the incorporationists. and during that contest a great
d;al of literature was circulated setting forth arguments in favor of incorporation along the following lines:
Why You Should Vote to Incorporate
South Vancouver as a City
We wish to control our own destiny.
We wish to develop our own business naterfront on the  Fraser River.
As a city we shall get a city postal
We wish South Vancouver motley
to  be  spent  in  South  Vancouver.
We want South Vancouver to be
governed  by   South  Vancouver  men.
Because lhe taxation in the city is
22}^ mills on a high valuation, and
in South Vancouver it is but 10 mills
on a veiy low valuation.
Because the present municipal law
is too cumbersome for  progress
Because all the benefits which will
accrue to South Vancouver by incorporation will not mean increased
Following is the full text of the
bill at that time placed before the
legislature  at    Victoria     and    under
which it is now proposed to erect the
municipality  into  a  city :
