South Vancouver Will Receive Produce From Rich Farming Delta District
By New Ladner Ferry Service, Thus Helping Reduce High Cost of Living
Sheep-raising on the Grauer Farm, near Ladner
Over 2000 Sacks of Delta Grain Ready for the Market
���
Grain Growing in the Delta���Cutting the Crop
Grain Growing in the Delta���Threshing in the Open Field
The Delta Is probably the best and
most prolific agricultural section 01
liritish Columbia. Situated at the
mouth of the FTaser and composed of
*ilt deposited by that mighty river during past ages, its 40,000 acreB are uline I led for growing grain, vegetables
and roots, while cattle, sheep, horses
and swine have long been successfully
raised In various parts.
To South Vancouver, the establishment of the new ferry service from
Ladner to Woodward's Landing Is of
especial importance, as the improved
transportation of produce from the
Delta will considerably help in reducing the cost of living.
Ladner is due south of .Main street.
Across the north arm of the Fraser, at
the foot of Main street. Is bridge connection with No. 5 Road. This road
extends in a bee-line to Woodward's
landing. Between the landing and tht
north arm is auto-stage service, which
gives direct and prompt connection
with the four-times-a-day ferry service,
This new route makes it very easy for
farmers and others with vehicles or
automobiles to get In from Ladner
South to Vancouver In reasonable
time, whereas It is a long trip the other way. During the first week this
Bervice was in operation there were
carried sixty-five autos, thirty-five
teams and three hundred and seventy-
seven passengers. This direct route
will br(ng the Delta into closer touch
with Greater Vancouver and its markets when electric cars run between
Woodward's Landing and the north
arm, over the route now covered by
the auto-stage. Under present conditions the B. C. Electric Railway Company  might  not  construct   this  line,
which would be practically an extension of its Main street service, but it
is quite probable that it will be built
at some future date. Such a line would
bring Ladner quite close to Vancouver,
in fact under such conditions it would
be so much a suburb that it might
reasonably be Included in Greater Vancouver.
Main Street Paving Work
Will be Home Project
The Contractors State That South Vancouver Tradesmen  and
Laborers Will Receive Preferential Treatment in Goods
Required and Work on Construction
Preliminary arrangements are bo
far complete that it is confidently ex-
liected that work on Main street paving will have started before the present year has run its course. As this
important undertaking means not only
a great forward step in the Improvements of the municipality but will also
provide , additional employment and
Hade In South Vancouver, the beginning of the work means good news
for the new year.
In an interview with a representative of the "Chinook," Mr. V. L. McAdam, superintendent of works for the
contractors, the Dominion Creosoting
Co., Limited, laid emphasis on the
���determination of the contractors to
execute the wont as a "home product,"
in the sense that they will, whenever
practicable, give local labor and trade
absolute preference over everything.
"We have planned." said Mr. Mac-
Adam, "to give the Municipality a
model wood block pavement that South
Vancouver people will be proud of for
many years to come, and we purpose
that it will be a home project, done
by local labor and with the co-opera
tion of ratepayers and residents of
South Vancouver. We appreciate the
present financial conditions, and we
are preparing and Intend to give the
ratepayers of South Vancouver preferential treatment in all the work necessary. We propose to employ, with per
haps a few exceptions, local labor in
eonstruction, and will train a South
Vancouver crew with that object. Of
course, at the start, we must procure
and choose the be.Bt men available for
the work as we cannot bind ourselves
to employ incompetent labor. The con
tract bus been accepted from the Municipality at so low a price that the
company cannot afford to have any
waste, such as loss of time or poor
workmanship. But the contractors;
bind themselveB to give all laborers
a square deal. They believe that there
is sufficient competent labor in South
Vancouver to get a rattling good gang
both as to efficiency and speed of
work.
"In regard to the tradesmen of South
Vancouver it is the intention of the
contractors in the buying of supplies
to give the business to local men if the
prices of goods obtained are equal to
those obtainable elsewhere. As the
margin of profit on the contract is
so small they must make this stipulation.
"In general," continued Mr. Mae-
Adam, "the policy of the company will
be to meet the people of South Vancouver in a friendly and co-operative
spirit, to make, in fact, the job solely
and strictly a family affair as regards
the municipality.
"At the request of Reeve Kerr and
some of the Councillors of South Vancouver, the contractors are formulating this policy, as briefly outlined, into
an agreement that will be signed and
delivered at the municipal hall before
the work starts.
"A construction office has been opened at 4554 Main street, and the contractors will be pleased to receive applications from any South Vancouver
ratepayers or residents who have had
experience in paving work, or advice
from tradesmen as to any supplies for
stock that we may need.    While we

The   "Chinook"
South Vancouver Industries
Represented
Industrial   Number
and Trades of Everji Kind
in Its Pages
VJu
The Industrial Number of the "Chinook," published last week as a special Christmas Issue, was quite noteworthy for the varied character of the
industries or trades represented. In
this respect, we venture to say that it
compared very favorably with any other special Christmas issue published
in the province.
Notwithstanding the hard times,
more or less prevalent throughout the
Dominion, the number of linns in
South Vancouver who published their
announcements in this industrial Number of the "Chinook" is a most gratifying indication ot their enterprise!
and their confidence in the continued
progress of the municipality.
Practically every industry, trade or
profession was represented tn the columns ot this special issue, and its
pages form remarkable evidence of
the extent of the business carried on
throughout South Vancouver. Some
idea of the variety of the industries or
trades represented may be realized
when It is mentioned that the following among others appeared In the advertisement columns: Iron and wire
works and foundries, nurseries, sewer
pipe manufacturer, builders' supplies,
sheet metal and other contractors,
bakerieB, electric appliances, show
case maker, lumber and fuel merchants, lumber mills, marble and granite
works, poultry and food, paving companies, smelting and refining, brewery, hay and grain, brokers, tailors,
transfer company, painters and decorators, jewellers, coal and wood merchants, telephone company, bungalow
builders, pure milk company, boot and
shoe stores, loan and guarantee firms,
real estate, insurance, hardware, furniture, plumbers, clothing, funeral directors, architects, grocers, accountants, drug stores, blacksmiths, butch
ers, pool rooms, tobacconists, piano
and music dealers, taxi-cab firm, business college, hank, dry goods, railway
companies, and general stores of every
description. These are taken at ran
dom from the columns of the "Chinook," and Is not supposed to include'
every trade or profession represented.
It may be added that this special
number of the "Chinook" bus been extensively sold and distributed not only
in  Greater  Vancouver,   but  has   also

Cedar Cottage business men have

a  number of the residents of the. district,   a   private   waterworks   system j

the agitation to secure annexation of

The record of Cedar Cottage has

When llle name South Vancouver
w:i- almost unknown, there was at
least mic district within ils borders
which was known to points on the
maialand. That place is Collingwood. Collingwood is eme eef the
oldest, if not the oldest, district in
the Municipality uf South Vancouver.
Shortly after the introduction of
the electrical car in Vancouver, the
line connecting Vancouver and New
Westminster was built and operated,
not mi tlie pretentious lines of the
present finely equipped interurban
line, but on proportions to serve a
somewhat limited population at the
terminal cities and a very sparsely
settled community along the line.
Thc inception of this line gave traus-
p.irtation to that part of the municipality and encouraged settlement.
When, therefore, there were no other
recognized settlements in South
Vancouver, with possibly thc exception of Cedar Cottage, which, too,
was served by the Vancouver-New
Westminster interurban line, I here
was a settlement  at Collingwood.
Just  how  Collingwood  derived  its
name is a matter on which old-timers
give   various   versions.       The    first
recognized road  in  South Vancouver
was the old Collingwood  road which
| intersected the B. C. E. R. tracks at
West Collingwood. Thc most plausible reason, no doubt, is that the district was called Collingwood in order
to  perpetuate  the  name  of  the   pioneer road, a  road which a  couple of
| years ago was deprived of its old af-
! filiations and was given the name of
Rupert Street.
Collingwood in the early days was
that portion of thc district now
known as West Collingwood. Joyce
Road was thc pioneer name given to
East Collingwood, which received its
present name to solve transportation problems with the B. C. E. R.
As Collingwood grew in the early
days so later it developed and is
now recognized to embrace all the
territory practically in South Vancouver from Victoria Road to the
boundary of the Municipality of
Burnaby as far south as No. 1 Road.
Collingwood's growth has been
steady and permanent. Covering a
large area, and with a high altitude,
it has been a popular place for the
man looking for a home site with a
little more land than goes with the
regulation lot. Prices of realty, too,
in this district have probably best
withstood the tendency to increase
at the same rate as in other parts of
South Vancouver, and this is a fact
which has encouraged a steady
growth, a growth which is even noticeable today.
Tlie claim is set forth that Collingwood possesses the finest transportation service in Greater Vancouver in
the form oi the Vancouver-Westminster interurban line. While removed a considerable distance from
tbe heart of the city of Vancouver
this fact offsets what otherwise
might bc a serious handicap to settlement. Besides this, only a few
months ago the paving of Kingsway
was completed, which gives Collingwood direct connection by the first
permanent roadway in South Vancouver with Vancouver and New
Westminster. On this road there is
now operated a tram service to East
Collingwood, an alternative route
into  Vancouver.
A town almost iu itself, Collingwood is noted throughout the Municipality for the public-spiritness of
its business man and the efforts of
its residents to assist all wholesome
movements. At Collingwood is situated the Collingwood Library over
which presides Mr. J. Francis Bursill. and this scat of learning has had
a healthy influence over thc residents of the district. It is not boasting to state that thc enactments of
the Collingwood Parliament, which
was thc suggestion of Mr. William
Morris, who is at present a candidate for the Council in Ward One,
is watched with almost as much interest at Victoria as in South Vancouver.
Beautifully located and with the
best of tram and road communication, Collingwood has everything to
look forward to in the future.
DRUIDS.
The custom of decorating strategic points in thc household with
sprigs of mistletoe at Christmas
dates far back to thc time of thc
Druids, who held the little plant in
great veneration. At the approach of
tlic'ir winter festival, I wigs 'of it were
placed above thc doors of their
houses to serve as talisnans and
signs to thc sylvan deities that shelter and comfort awaited them within.
Present-day customs relating to
mistletoe represent the evolution of
the Druidical legend.
Too many of us take mean things
on faith and demand proof of good
things.

To the Editor of "The Chinook;"
Sir���Re Councillor Thomas' decision to stand for Ward 3, it might be
interesting to recall a statement
made by Councillor Thomas to
Councillor Humphries. I may say
that this conversation took place on
Monday, December 1 last, and Councillor Humphries and Third, and the
writer wcre talking privately on the
landing at the Municipal Hall, when
Councillor Thomas said, speaking to
Mr. Thomas:
"I hear Mr. Thomas, that you are
going to give up Ward 5 in favor of
a man who insulted you not t one
year ago, and that you intend to oppose me in Ward 3?"
Councillor Thomas then placed his
hand on the shoulder of Ralph Humphries and  said:
"Ralph, my boy, if you run in Ward
3 I will not oppose you."
This conversation I would swear
upon oath as to being absolutely
true.
Yours, etc.,
CHARLES  HILL.
MR.  DICKIE  FOR   REEVE.
To the Editor of "The Chinook:"
Sir���I have made up what I am
pleasnd to consider "my mind" that I
will lake but little part in municipal
politics this year. There are. however,   one   or   two   features    of   the
candidature of Mr. Dickie, which interest me from the historical and literary standpoints, and provoke comment     History  repeats  itself.
When Queen Elizabeth visited
Brentford no royal salute was fired.
"Sirrah," said the queen to the
mayor, "how is it you do not give us
the customary salute���a salvo of
guns?"
"There arc thirty-nine reasons for
thc omission," said thc mayor, "thc
first is that Brentford docs not possess anything in the shape of a gun."
"D���m thc other thirty-eight reasons," said outspoken Queen liess,
"the first sufficeth." Mr. Dickie had
forty-four (or was it eighty-eight?)
reasons for not "running for reeve."
Had he stated at first, "I'm not
wanted," he could have spared details.    Literary  coincidences.
See how remarkably Mr. Dickie's
attitude recalls thc comedy, "She
Would, and She Would Not." See
how it reminds us of the story sung
by "Stead, the Perfect Cure." First
she would and then she wouldn't.
See how his conduct has been described by the English writer, "and
swearing shc would ne'er consent,
consented. Then again how interesting is his candidature from a
philological point of view. I am a
student of "slang." In London when
a man has not time to put on a clean
dress shirt, or has not a dress shirt
to put on, he dons a combined shirt
bosom and collar, called a "Dickie."
How appropriate that a certain
oarty, having (metaphorically speaking!, a candidate with the spaciousness and merits of an entire garment,
should put forward a  candidate, who
in my Opinion, only my opinion,
mark you, is only a substitute for
the real thing.

WHEN    YULE    LOG    BURNED.
That  Feature of Christmas.
The    Yule    log    on    thc    fireplace
roared,
The whole hall was aglow,
Thc   great   hounds    lay   before    the
blaze,
Dreaming of stag and  boar.
One of the prettiest sights of the
old-time Christinas must have been
that of the Yule log being drawn
homeward, surrounded with joyous,
laughing children, shouting merry
greeting to each wayfarer as he
doffed his hat in reverence to the log
so full of good promises whose
flames had the power to burn out
old wrongs and heartburnings. On
the arrival of the log at thc "baronial
hall' it was customary to greet it in
fitting manner either in verse or
song.
In some parts of France there was
also the custom of the Christmas log,
although there has been a different
significance. There the log had suspended from each end the toys, cakes
and fruits for thc children of the
house. These were the gifts Petit
Maulet or Christmas child was said
to  have  brought.
In thc mountain districts of Germany the Christinas log was supposed to have the power of warding
off dangers from lightning and was
kept beneath the bed of the master
of the house from one Christmas till
the next, when it was used to light
lhe new log. On Christmas Eve all
lights and fires were extinguished in

INDUSTRIAL NEEDS
BEFORE the present campaign (or civic honors is
over, every candidate should (five a public undertaking that he will press for active steps being!
taken to induce industries to locate in 8. Vancouver,
In the heal of, and absorption in, other local controversial matters, this vital necessity is too apt to be
overlooked. It cannol be too persistently urged,
in season and, it' necessary, out or season, that the
need of Industries in South Vancouver is absolutely
imperative and demands insistent attention. .What
is wiiiitt'il is a strenuous and organized campaign
to make better known the industrial Bites of the
municipality.
What, ns a matter of fact, is one ni the chief
causes of the lack in the circulation of money right
hen1 ill South Vancouver.' It is to a great extent
tlie dearth of men with the dinner pails. Had there
been mure factories or mills in the municipality the
tightness nl' money would not have been experienced
to anything like the same extent as during the past
twelve months. Some stringently there would have
been, more or less as prevails in all other parts of
the Dominion. Rut the point is that those cities or
districts with the most industries have weathered
Ihe financial storm the easiest.
The industries already located in South Vancouver have all made progress despite hard times. But
it is not merely that the concerns themselves may
have made money; they have employed many residents of South Vancouver, maintained many families, and circulated -the resulting money largely
throughout the locality. That is the inestimable
service these industries have rendered South Vancouver.
South Vancouver should not depend for help in
this matter upon the Vancouver Board of Trade or
any Chamber of Commerce that may eventually be
formed, whether annexation or incorporation mater-
alizes. It is the bounden duty of every public body
of the municipality as well as of the tradesmen and
residents to agitate for industries. This may be
termed "mere talk," but it is such talk and such
agitation, if persisted in, that leads to action.
Especially should the South Vancouver Board of
Trade be loyally supported in seeking recognition of
tbe advantages of the industrial siteH in the municipality. These advantages are not too widely known;
a knowledge of them should be trumpeted abroad.
As suggested by Mr. Robert Abernethy, the chairman of the North Arm Harbor Commission, there
should also be active co-operation between the various municipalities in helping develop the harbor,
and he has recommended that each municipality
should purchase large areas of sites at nominal
rates for industrial purposes. Hurnaby has already
taken steps in this direction, and it remains for
South Vancouver to sec lhat no valuable time is lost
in taking similar measures.
r.  ~*~	
���' NOTHING DOING.
I T is becoming every day more evident that the pre-
* sent provincial government is getting deeper into the mire of debt. At the same time, while sacrificing or shelving public works of urgent utility, it
cheerfully undertakes government works of no immediate necessity. To this autocratic ministry it
seems more important to build, enlarge or embellish
official structures in Victoria, all of which could
easily wait, than to assist in a public undertaking
of pressing need to Greater Vancouver.
Such, at any rate, is the only conclusion that can
be drawn from the result of the recent interview of
a Greaiter Vancouver delegation with Sir R. McBride. The delegation, which included representatives from the municipalities on Burrard Inlet,
asked that the government should take over the
$1,500,000 already raised or donated hy the municipalities and the Dominion and provincial governments, and add a million dollars 30 that the proposed
Second Narrows bridge should be built forthwith.
The total amount was the estimate for a bridge suitable and durable enough as a means of communication between two of the most populous parts of
Greater Vancouver.
The purport of the premier's reply was that owing
to financial difficulties .the government ministers
could not commit themselves to aiding the project
in the way suggested. Instead, as a sort of sop for
the deputation, a plan was submitted by the government for a much cheaper and inferior bridge than
the one which the company was incorporated by
the municipalities to construct, and the members
were asked to "think over the plans."   It required
no great thinking over the matter for the memberi
to express their unanimous disapproval of the gov
eminent'l refusal to assist this necessary piiblie
work.
In the meantime, the government has lightheurtei',

PUBLIC MARKETS.
As a partial solution of the problem of tlie high
cost of living, or some help towards the lowering of tlie price of provisions, the establishment of
weekly markets in Greater Vancouver appears to be
growing in public favor. The Vancouver city market on Main street is neither large enough, nor convenient enough as regards location, for adequately
serving the needs of Greater Vancouver.
Following the example of South Vancouver the
Point Qrey and Richmond Board of Trade proposed,
last week the establishment of a public market to
be held weekly at Eburne. It is planned to hold.

Fraser Harbor Commissioners on the water front

that this market would serve to greatly reduce the

would he held on some other day than Friday, the
New WoMminster market day, am! the purpose is
to attract producers from all pints of the Fraser
Valley.
Huriinby. or at least the eastei 11 portion of the
municipality, has hitherto been served by the New
Westminster market. To that markel has gone
much of the produce of the Delta, or by thai round
about route to the Vancuuver market. As a consequence of the delay in transportation anel for other
reasons, the New Westminster mai kel deics not meet,
any more than does the cily of Vancouver market,
the requirements of Greater Vancouver.
South Vancouver, however, is ideally situated for
a public market in the most rapidly growing pari
of the peninsula. Now that thc new Ladner ferry
to Woodward's landing is in operation and motor
buses running thence through Fraser street, South
Vancouver's opportunity should not be allowed to
pass into thc limbo of forgotten things. The Board
of Trade proposal is supposed to lie in abeyance,
but it may be confidently hoped that the enterprising tradesmen and residents of the Fraser street
district will work for thc early establishment of
the market.
securing an increased measure of support. But at
the same time, it is only fair that residents of the
district should give these tradesmen first chance of
idling their gootls. It iN such co-operation that will
help on the "buy in .South Vancouver first" move
 nt as well as promote, concurrently, the prosperity of the loealitv.
TIIF TURNING OP TIIK LANE
AS another welcome sign that the clouds in the lin-
uneial horizon are gradually breaking, it is satin-lory to learn lhat, at the time of writing, 170,000
.vorth of South Vancouver bonds have been so'd
througii Messrs. Wnnd, Gundy & Co., the municipality's fiscal agents, These bonds which comprised
ihe school loan of $50,000 and tlle parks loan of
jt'20.000, bore interest at "> per cent, and brought 88.
This amount i.s not a large one, but Recording In

the municipality now as compared with six months
ago.

BUY IN SOUTH VANCOUVER FIRST
O "sec B. C. first" is advice which is eminently
sound and sensible. It might bc considered almost unnecessary were it not that there arc so many
residents of the province who do not realize the
unsurpassed and most varied character of the
scenery and other attractions of British Columbia.
There are many people who live in Vancouver who
hardly ever leave it except to spend a vacation in
Seattle, San Francisco or Honolulu, not in the winter only but in thc summer months. That, of course,
is the visitors' own business and privilege.
But it may be suggested that th-re is another
maxim contained in the words of "Buy in South
Vancouver first" that might very we 1 be borne in
mind by residents of the municipality. While no
doubt the majority of residents already do so, there
arc others who, perhaps from mere habit, thoughtlessness or for other reasons, buy their goods, or a
large portion of them, elsewhere than in South Vancouver. It may bc that it is not sufficiently recognized that the greater thc business done by local
tradesmen the greater the prosperity of the residents of the whole district. Every little helps;
and we can all, by supporting, whenever possible,
tradesmen and industries in South Vancouver, contribute our share towards the progress of the municipality.
It is possible, of course, that there arc certain articles that cannot be readily obtained in South Vancouver. It may be known that they can be obtained
elsewhere. Many of the tradesmen are comparatively new comers in the district, and the capacity
and variety of their stock may not be adequately
known. But by making enquiries, and by giving
South Vancouver tradesmen opportunities first of
doing business, residents can do much towards encouraging home industries, besides benefiting themselves.
Recently several public announcements have been
made on this matter of giving local tradesmen or
firms preferential itreatment. The municipal council
has placed this policy on record. Iu this week's
"Chinook" thc Dominion Creosoting Company, the
contractors for the Main street paving, definitely
state that it is their earnest desire to give business
men in South Vancouver the preference wherever
possible. They seek the co-opevatiou of both trales-
men and residents of the municipality in keeping
thc work and business at home.
There are now in South Vancouver a large number of well-equipped stores with goods of a quality
quite equal to those obtainable in Vancouver or any-
other part of. thc province) and there seems no reason why they should not successfully  compete  in
A HE AW VOTERS' HIST
I ' HAT the voters' list this year is more than dou-
* hie lhat nf last year may be considered a healthy indication of increased interest taken by South
Vancouver ratepayeis in the forthcoming municipal
elections. It no doubt also points lo improved methods
of organization at the municipal bull, where, indeed,
lhe work has been exceptionally heavy in preparing tlie list. As last year the number nf the list was
only about 10,000, as compared with approximately
2:i,lHI0 names this year, it may be anticipated tbat
the polling in January will show a very considerable
increase over that of the last elections.
In Hurnaby, also, there is reported a substantial
increase in the present year's voters' list. Hast year
the number of names on the list amounted to aboul
8,000, while the number recorded this year is over
11,000. This is not quite so remarkable an increase
as in South Vancouver, but it also points to an
awakened interest by the ratepayers in municipal
government.
It will be remembered that in both South Vancouver and Hurnaby considerable surprise and disappointment was expressed at the small ratio of
electors who recorded their votes at recent bye-elections. This seeming apathy was due to various
causes, which it is not necessary now to recall. But
it appears evident from tlle exceptionally active interest taken in tlle present municipal campaigns in
South Vancouver and Burnaby by the ratepayers,
as well as the immense increase in the voters' lists,
that, the coining elections will show record returns
on polling day.

Rev. J, ft Robertson, minister of
St. David's Church, has been giving a
weekly series of sermons on "the origin and message of the first six books
of the Bible." and brought the series
to a close on Sunday, Dec. 21, by a
sermon on "The Book of Joshua." The
whole series have attracted large and
appreciative congregations.
According to the estimates of the
South Vancouver School Board Trustees, an increase of 900 pupils is anticipated next year, bringing the number to be provided for up to 4500. It
is estimated that from $90,000 to $100,-
000 will be required for salaries of
teachers, janitors and officials, as compared with $76,000 this year.
Speaking at one of his meetings in
Vancouver last week. Mr. L. D. Taylor,
editor of the "World." who is again a
candidate as Mayor, stated that he
was in favor of the annexation of
South Vancouver to the city, but that
"as there was a difference of opinion
with the residents, a side vote would
be taken next year to decide whether
the people were In favor of the
schem<\ that is if he was elected."
Conditional upon runiis being available, the South Vancouver Council has
ordered laid 3500 lineal feet of sidewalk anil about 3200 lineal feet of
street cleared and rough graded. It
was also ordered to have an eight-foot
plank roadway constructed on Thirty-
fourth avenue from Ross street to Kl-

It i> lingular that in tlie history of
tlie weirld lince the Christmas era
few important events have hap-
pened on Christmas day. yet, the
festival has heen preceded and followed by decisive battles, hy transactions eif mighty import, and by
movements eef nations that have affected the future of millions of people. From thc earliest day it seems
to have been understood that wars
were to be temporarily suspended
and that a truce of the birth of
Christ commenced.
Going back to the first observance
of Christmas day it is found that
December 25 was not looked upon
as thc birthday of Christ. Unlil 337
A. D., various days were celebrated
by various people, hut Pope Julius I.
caused an investigation of all the
authorities to be made, with the re-
iult that December 25 was decided
upon.       The   first   observances   were
ery simple, but as the years passed
and Christian people increased in
numbers thc day became one of
more importance. In 83 while devout Romans were celebrating
Christmas their emperor, Marcus
Aureliuc Carus, was killed hy lightning beyond the Tigris. December
24, 496. Clnvis. the first Christian
king of France, was crowned at
Rheims. On the same day in the
year 800 Charles, king of France,
was crowned by Pope Leo at Rome
as emperor of thc west, and the people combined the festivities of
Christmas with those incident to thc
imperial occasion. December 25,
820, Leo, emperor of Constantinople,
..���as assassinated. lie was an Armenian by birth, but by his valor became
general of the Roman armies. He
prevailed   upon   the   troops   to    pro-
that the theatre was nearly ton
(hewn and thc players prevented fneii
act ing.
Christmas night, 1776, Washingteei
crossed the Deleware and the nexl
day occurred the battle of Trenton.
They toeik it feer granted that the
revolutionary army would rest upon
its arms and allow them to spend
their Christmas in peace, but Washington concluded that the deed
would be bettered by the day and he
loaded his small army into boats
and crossed the icy waters of the
muddy river. Hc reckoned correctly,
and the result of his daring manoeuvre was that he attacked Colonel
Rahille at sunrise. The commanding officer and 20 of thc enemy were
killed and 1000 were taken prisoners.
Two Americans wcre killed and two
were frozen to death. Washington's
valor, however, saved thc American
cause. Hc had found it dificult to
secure recruits, but this coup brought
him thousands of volunteers. The
spirit of the colonists had been
drooping for some time, and the
Christmas day preceding the battle
of Trenton was one of the gloomiest
in  thc  history  of thc  United  States.
December 25. 1800, Frenchmen in
Paris were talking of an attempt
that had been made to assassinate
Reenapart bv an infernal machine.
December 25, 1804, Spain and England were at war. The following
Christmas. 1805. France and Russia
had decided upon  peace.
On December 24, 1844, the Morse
telegraph was experimented with between Baltimore and Washington,
and on Christmas day messages were
successfully  dispatched.

December 25 William of Normandy ��'as crowned . at London.
There was great tumult. It is not
definitely knowji whether the people were engaged because their
ehurcH festivities had been interrupted or whether Ihey were dissatisfied with their new ruler, but William was a shrewd politician, and to

Harjh.as it may seem in this enlightened age, there waS wild re;
joicing ^upori the 2jjth of December,
1476, when an assa'ssinjs knife, ended
the life of Guilo Maria Forza,; duke
of Milan. He had rendered himself
unpopular by his ferocity and debauchery.
On. ^December 25, 1658, Oliver
Crorpiyell. was angry. Several congregations met in London to celebrate the. birth of the Saviour, and
he dispersed (hem in no gentle manner. That was not a very happy
Christmas for the good people of
England, but their disappointment
and anger engendered determination,
and they observed the day in their
homes, hidden from the view of the
soldiers.
James, called the pretender, designated December 25, 1715, as the day
to land at Peterhead, where he forthwith established his court. On
Christmas day, 1762, there was a big
riot at the Drury Lane theatre in
London. The people began to make
the occasion one of general rejoicing
and amusement, and they wanted to
be admitted to the performance at
half price; but thc managers were
selfish and knew there would be a
rush, and insisted upon maintaining
the scheduled rates.    The result was
NEW YEAR BALL A NOVELTY
Will Prove Something New and Entertaining  for   Children.
This is a novel receptacle holding
twenty or more small gifts for the
entertainment of children on New
Year morning. When thc children
arc scaled on the floor, this ball is
set in motion by a grown-up; the
child to whom it is rolled takes out
a gift, and sends the ball spinningito
another, and so on until the-gifts
are exhausted. The framework is
made as follows: lvuy two pairs of
ten-inch wooden ��� embroidery hoops,
and put them inside each other until
you have the skeleton of a globe
with eight curved ribs.	
Where the hoops intersect, top and
bottom, fasten securely ,wjth raffia,
i be circles are now vertical, aiffl a
cross circle is needed to st&y tll^m;.
this is to be made of coatsc. ratan (or
reed), and must be fastened to the
bulging part of each rib; do not join
the rattan ends together, _as an
opening must be (eft bctweefi two of
the ribs to allow flic- children to
reach in for thc gifts. If you should
cut the rind of an orange into eight
sections, from biid <;nd to stem end,'
you would have the shape of the sections for the inner covering of the
framework; cut from stbut cotton
eight of these pieces, allowing amply
for seams. Sew four pieces together,
and fit to half the framework, let-
tin- seams come between ribs, not
on them; how sew thc fifth piece to
thc joined four, sew the sixth piece
to the joined five, and so on until
the framework is covered. Do not
entirely close the last scam, sewing
it only one-third way up from the
bottom and one-half way down from
the top, leaving an open third. Make
the outer covering the same way,
using white Christmas cloth having
stamped on it figures of Santa Claus,
holly, bells or just plain red cloth:���

South Vancouver Water Records
From Seymour Creek Increased
Reeve Kerr Makes Statement
Supplies in Other Greater
In regard to Um Increased water reci
ords obtained by South Vancouver, af- J
ter a conference of Suuth and North
Vancouver   representatives   with   the
premier at  Victoria,  the outcome  is
thai the Conner municipality will now
obtain 550 inches, which Includes the
160   inches   previously   obtained   Irom J
Seymour   Creek,     lu   explanation    of j
Sieiitli Vancouver's leosition on the mat-1
ter,  Reeve  Kerr makes  the'  following
statement:
"In 11)12. when I took office," said
the  reeve,  "South  Vancouver's  water
sill lily was  iar from satisfactory and
We set to work at once to try to ob-,
tain a better supply.    We found  that
in   lHOti   records   on  Seymour Creek
were issued as follows:    City of Van-!
couver,  1400   miner's  inches;   Munici-'
pality of Xorth Vancouver, 800; South
Vancouver,  800;   Richmond,  250;   and
Burnaby,   250.     In   ISO?,   Point   Grey
separated from South Vancouver and
150  inches of our record  were  given'
to the new corporation, thus reducing
South Vancouver's record to 150 miner's inches.
"The council realized that before we
could hope to install a permanent water supply for South Vancouver we
must first secure a larger record on
Seymour Creek than 150 miner's
inches, and we commenced negotiations with both North Vancouver and
Richmond in order to come to some
arrangement whereby South Vancouver would share in their records.
These negotiations were in progress
during practically the whole of 1912,
but without any satisfactory result.
When I was re-elected to office in
1913, the council again took up the
matter; but this time we determined
to go direct to the Provincial Government, to place our case before the
water commissioner and to aBk for a
redistribution of the records. This redistribution has now been granted eand
South Vancouver will in future have
550 miner's inches and North Vancouver 400.
"In the meantime, while negotiations with North Vancouver and
Richmond and with the Provincial
Government were in progress, residents in the municipality were crying
out for a more abundant supply of
water. Early in 1912, we discovered
that it was hopeless to look to Vancouver for a greater supply than we
were already getting, as the city was
giving us as much as could be spared.
We were compelled, therefore, to ascertain the best means of securing a
temporary supply. After going carefully into the matter, we came to the

^��
conclusion the) the only way by which
wc could se cure a ti'inporary supply
was by holing wills and by malting
use of the springs on the C, P. It.
property.
"The results of our efforts is now
well known. Wo sank wells at various points and though some of them
were failures, others yielded an abundant supply of water of good quality
and the consequence was thai this
year we had no complaints of shortage. We felt, however, that a greater
pressure was required for lire-lighting
on the higher levels, und negotiations
were entered Into with Burnaby council for an additional supply of water,
In this we were successful, and an
agreement has been entered into with
Burnaby for twelve months' supply
at a cost of $ln,000. As Burnaby develops, however, that municipality
will require all the water it can get
and it is extremely doubtful, therefore, whether Burnaby will be prepared to renew the agreement at the end
of twelve months,
"But, with the increased record on
Seymour Creek, we are now in a position either to enter into an agreement
with Vancouver City Council, to bring
down the water jointly with the city,
or we can lay our own pipe line to
Seymour Creek. The water supply
question is of so much importance to
South Vancouver that having carried
the matter so far, I am anxious to
carry it through to completion.
"I would hue here to express my
appreciation of the excellent work
done by our water superintendent, Air.
Mullett. He has been the subject of
a good deal of criticism, but I want to
say that if his critics fully understood
the system of mains which he has
laid down, with an eye to the future,
and the difficulties he has had to overcome in order to provide residents
with an ample supply of water, their
crPiclsm would cease.
"In making his report to the Lieutenant-Governor in council, Water
Commissioner Young pointed out that
the record of 800 miner's inches issued to the municipality ot North Vancouver had not been used, and he added: 'Nor does It appear that the full
amount granted will ever be required
by the district of North Vancouver or
by the city of North Vancouver, they
having developed other sources of
supply.' Water Commissioner Young
recommended, therefore, that North
Vancouver's 800 inches be reduced to
350 Inches and that a permit be issued
to South Vancouver for the reduction
of 450 inches. The final agreement between the representatives of North
and South Vancouver and the government was, however, that North
Vancouver have 400 inches and South
Vancouver .550, making a total with
South Vancouver's previous record of
950 miner's inches.
"South Vancouver now has a record
of water sufficient to supply a population of at least 100,000, allowing for
each resident over sixty gallons a day,
which should be sufficient for many
years to come."

keep tnem employed unless satisfaction Is given. No favors are given and
no favors are aBked."
All lhe plans are prepared and the
tools are on the ground, ready for be-
j ginning operations which are awaiting
llnal   instructions   frcm   the   f'ouncil.
I Two  South  Vancouver  foremen  have
' already been engaged. It is hoped
tbat the (^ouncil will supply sufficient
funds to make a start on the drainage
and curbing this winter, when there
will be employed about 00 men. When
| the work is in full swing, early In the
spring, it Is expected about 200 workmen will be engaged on the construction.
The plcns adopted by the contractors
are the last words in paving construction. There Is the special feature of
embedding the wood blocks in the
rails of the car tracks in cement mortar which is forced up between and
around each block, holding each individual set in a concrete chamber that
will last throughout the life of the
cement. While the contractors have
given a 15 years' guarantee on the
pavement, the life of the pavement
will really be hetween 20 and 25 years.
It may be added that the wood
blocks are of Douglas fir, than which
there is none better in the world for
durable qualities. As the wood blocks
are placed on end, the grain being vertical, heavy traffic tends to improve
the wearing advantages of the paving.
It is the opinion of tbe highest authorities that these wood blocks have
greater wearing qualities than any
other system of pavement as is proved
by their adoption in som? of the principal cities in the world.
