Three-cornered Fight For South Vancouver Reeveship;
Candidates Lining up for the Municipal Elections
Mr. J. C. McArthur decides to Enter the
Field to Oppose Reeve Kerr and Mr. Dickie-
Councillor John Third Announces That He
Will he in the Running Again���
Spirited Fight is Promised in Other Wards
Early this week a rumor gained
considerable publicity that Mr.
Thomas Dickie had retired from the
fight for the reeveship. To a representative of the "Chinook" on Thursday of this week, Mr. Dickie said that
there was absolutely no truth in the
statement and that he would be in
the running until the last man fell.
Last week Mr. Dickie announced that
he would contest the Reeveship.
At least three candidates will be in
lhe field for the reeveship in South
Vancouver in the elections which will
be held the early part of next year.
Last week Mr. Thomas Dickie announced definitely that hc would bc
in the running while announcements
were made this week by Reeve Kerr
and Mr. J. C. McArthur that they
will bc in the field. Candidates for
council and school board are ce lining to the front and all indications
point to the most spirited election in
ihe history of South Vancouver.
Great interest will naturally centre
around the fight for the reeveship.
On his showing of the past two years
and on his policies for the future
Reeve Kerr will go to the electorate
while Mr. Dickie has already outlined
his platform in these columns. Mr.
McArthur, while announcing to his
friends whei have waited on him that
lie will be a candidate, is awaiting
the outcome of a meeting of thc ratepayers of Ward II. If he secures
the endorsement of this meeting he
will immediately start work on his
campaign. It is expected that that
meeting will bc held cither the latter
part of this week or thc first part of
next week.
At a meeting of Ratepayers of
Ward I in the Carleton Hall on Monday night of this week, the endorsement of Mr. McArthur as Reeve was
secured and following the meeting a
deputation waited on him requesting
him to allow himself to go before the
public. As stated before he is awaiting the meeting in Ward II befure
definitely  announcing  himself.
Candidates for council in the different wards are rapidly appearing on
lhe scene, and while few names have
1" date been mentioned in connection
with the school board, there will, no
"leiubt, be no dearth of aspirants for
lhe vacancies which will be created
by the end of this year on that board.
History Repeats Itself in Ward One
Ward One, South Vancouver, is
"lhe cynosure eef all eyes." They do
make history in Ward One when they
set about it. Mr. Wilbers has had
eit'eiigh municipal experience and he
finds it quite easy���not to be a Coun
cillor. So hc will not run again.
This many will regret, for though
he has not attempted to set the
Fraser, or even Vanness Avenue on
fire, Mr. Wilbers has been painstaking and conscientious and only wants
experience to make him a good useful  representative.
Mr. Win. Morris will run. that
seems pretty certain, and of his activity, zeal, and ability there is not a
shadow of a doubt. He will find it
hard work if elected to till the bill as
councillor and school trustee, bul it
is the busy man who does thc work,
the "man of leisure" generally takes
his leisure to the full.
At a meeting held at Carleton Hall
Mr. Rutledge received a good deal
uf support. Many will ask whu is Mr.
Rutledge He is nut much known
tu public life in South Vancouver, but
it is said he was councillor in a Manitoba town. But there, meetings will
soon be held, thc candidates will bc
heard and the voters will be able to
judge  who  is  the  best  man.
Ward One wants a live, active,
sensible, able man. fur Ward One is.
intellectually, "thc Athens of South
Vancouver." It is physically in need
of a good deal of "fixing up." Ward
One needs a councillor with the
strength of Hercules, thc wit of Sheridan, the brains of Gladstone and the
"check" of Bowser. Now Messrs.
Morris and Rutledge step nut and
show your form and may the best
man  win.
Tbe field in Ward Two is an open
one at the present writing. Councillor Dickenson has not yet announced himself though there are reasons to believe that he will go before
the electorate again. The names of
Mr. Stevens and Mr. Russell have been
put forth as possibilities but nu definite announcement has been forthcoming from either one of these men.
In Ward Three there will be merry
doings. Councillor Thomas, whu represents Ward Five in the council
has decided to take his chances in
this Ward and he will of course have
the present councillor for that ward,
Mr. Ralph Humphries, as an opponent. This will have the effect of retiring at least one eif the present
council. It is stated that there may
be a third candidate in the field in
this ward in the person of Mr. Mc-
N'cish. who was an opponent for Mr.
Humphries at the election of a year
ago.
Mr. John Third will go before the
electors in Ward Four again. The
councillor made a definite announcement tee this effect to the "Chinook"
this week, stating that in deference
to many requests made on him by his
friends he had decided to stand again.
Just who will oppose Mr. Third is
problematical. Mr. Winram, who
opposed Mr. Third at the last election.
Reeve Kerr Definitely in
the Field for Third Term
South Vancouver Reeve Will go to the Electorate Again at the
Elections Early Next Year -Why He Seeks Another Term
REEVE JAMES A. KERR
Mr. Kerr made a definite announcement this week that he would stand
for a third term for lhe Reeveship at the elections early next year
has been mentioned while the name
of Mr. J. W. Prowse has also been
to the fore among those whei might
possibly  be  in   the  running.
Mr. Edward Gold will be a candidate in Ward Five. Having withdrawn from the recvcship. Mr. Geeld
will concentrate his efforts on being
elected to the council in Ward Five.
Who will cume eeut against Mr. Gold
in this Ward has yet to be decided.
Councillor Millar will seek re-election in Ward Six. Opposition for the
present councillor has yet tu be announced. A year ago Mr. Robert
McBride was in the held, lie has
not yet stated one way or the other
whether hc will be in tin- running
again. There is also some talk that
Mr. James will be in the held against
Councillor Millar.
There will also bc a contest in
Ward Seven. Councillor C. S.
Campbell will go befure the people
again and bc will probabty have as
an  opponent.  Mr.  W. C. Twiddy.
MR. J. C. McARTHUR
Who announced this week that he will enter the fight for the Reeveship
of South Vancouver. Mr. McArthur is at present a member of the South
Vancouver School Board and until last summer was Police Magistrate of
South Vancouver
In the school board there will be
three retirements this year, Chairman Whelpton, Mr. J. C. McArthur
ami Mr. Harry Neelands. Mr.
Whelpton and Mr. Neelands will seek
another term, while with Mr. McArthur in the running for tbe reeveship
at least un additional candidate will
have to present himself for thc third
vacancy.
Lectures for Women
A series of lectures will bc given
during the next few months in Carlton Hall. Collingwood, which women
and mothers of thc Collingwoeid district  are cordially  invited  to  attend.
Tbe meetings will be of a purely
non-denominational character and
will be uf absorbing interest. Thc first
lecture will bc given on December 16.
Mr. A. Martin, principal uf Carleton
school, being tbe speaker. He will
chouse fur his topic "The Schools of
British Columbia."
Definite announcement was made
by Reeve J. A. Kerr this week that
hc weeuld be in the field feir a third
term in the Reeve's eer Mayor's chair
in the elections which will be held
the first part of next year. On January 7 the electorate of South Vancouver will express itself on the question eif incorporation. If incorporation carries. South Vancouver will
be raised to thc status of a city and
Reeve Kerr will be one of the contestants for the Mayoralty. Should
incorporation bc defeated he will be
a candidate for a third term in the
Reeve's chair.
In making his announcement. Reeve
Kerr stated that he felt that as Reeve
of South Vancouver he had been a
success and that hc had done something feer the municipality. He had
carried South Vancouver through its
most trenuuus experiences, notably
the financial difficulties of the present year and the agitations of the
summer months, and on these grounds
and un the fact that he had had two
years' experience as Reeve and accordingly was better fitted to fill the
position, he presented himself tu the
electors again.
"I believe," he stated to a representative of the "Chinook," "that
every encouragement should be given
to South Vancouver, whether as a
municipality of a city, to its upbuilding as an industrial centre. In this
connection I have outlined a policy
of municipal ownership of all public-
utilities which I have consistently advocated, By such a policy it is unbelief that South Vancouver can permanently and most quickly take its
place as an industrial centre.
"As to economy and retrenchment.
I believe in retrenchment at all times
and more particularly so in good
times. In my opinion it is when times
are best that the greatest care should
be exercised in the borrowing of
money and the placing of financial
obligations.
"I should just like to add at this
time, while not rehearsing what we
have accomplished since I took over
tbe eiffice of Reeve, that if elected
next year it will bc my endeavor
among other things to provide more
adequate fire protection feir South
Vancouver. This 1 think is one of
the vital questions which should be
taken up by the council. The question eif sewerage is another matter
ot  grave   importance  to   South   Van
couver and one which I should like
to see efficiently handled. Plans are
now under way in respect to the sewerage system of South Vancouver
and it is my sincere desire to see this
matter successfully coped with and
carried   out."
MR CLEMENT RESIGNS AS
ENGINEER  OF  S.  VANCOUVER
Head of Engineering Department
Will Sever Connection on December 3���Owing to Lack of Work
Wishes  to be relieved
Thc resignation of Municipal Engineer W. Clement was read at a
meeting uf the Board of Works on
Wednesday afternoon of this week.
Mr. Clement gave among his reasons
that the Kingsway paving being concluded, and the eether large works
being indefinitely delayed he did not
feel justified in continuing in office.
His resignation is to take effect on
December 31. The resignation will
ceime before thc meeting of the council which will be held on Friday of
this week.
Mr. Clement was for many years
engineer of the City of Vancouver

South Vancouver. He had been receiving a salary of $3,000. Mr. Clement has been a prominent factor in
the many improvements which have
been made in Vancouver and South
Vancouver from time to time. His
plans for a sewerage system of Greater Vancouver has to a large extent
been adopted by the Burrard Sewerage  Commission.
P. C. Anthony Promoted
P. C. Anthony has been promoted

peilice constable captured an alleged
burglar in thc store of Joseph's. Main
Street.
New Fire Alarm System

Fire Alarm System was authorized
at a meeting of the Board of Works
of South Vancouver on Wednesday.
The system will cost $10,375. It is
expected tbat the system can be purchased out of the money levied this
year.
MAIN STREET PAVING WILL
COMMENCE AT EARLY DATE
Reeve Kerr announced t" the
"Chinook" this week that it was expected   thc   work   on   the   paving   eif
Main  Street   weiuld  be   commenced
at an early date. About fifty men
were put at work this week laying
the water pipes along this street.
This work of course is necessary before the grading and drainage operations could be proceeded with. The
drainage work necessary before the
actual work of paving commences
will cost about $60,000.
Arrangements arc expected tee be
consummated soon whereby the
beinds covering this weirk will bc disposed of. Until such time as these
bonds are sold no start will bc made
on the work.
IMMUNITY   FROM   DISEASE
IN SOUTH VANCOUVER
South Vancouver as une of the
healthiest communities of Greater
Vancouver wa>. emphasized at a meeting of tlie Health Committee this
week when thc Medical Health Officer, Dr. Giles I!. Murphy, reported
that thc municipality was practically
free from infectious diseases. Only
a few cases were reported for the
uieinth of November ami these were
iif a mild type
South Vancouver's position in
Greater Vancuuver makes ils record
from the health standpoint one to bc
envied. Amongst school children thc
amount of sickness has been very
small.
"FIGHTING JOE"   at  Collingwood
"A  night  of rain���
The  eaves  were  dripping yet
And the moon  looked out
As though in pain
With a face all white and wet "
So wrote Owen Meredith, about a
certain wet night, but oh! Not such
a night as they had at Collingwood
when "Fighting Joe" paid a visit tee
the Collingwood Institute. The meeting was arranged hy the Collingwood
Parliament���and in spite of the rain���
and the wind, there was a splemliel
gathering. Councillor Wilbers was
in the chair, Premier Todrick was
there, also Mr. W. Morris, leader of
the opposition. Oratory, songs anil
smoke made the time pass all too
soon. Messrs. Bradley. Yeiung, Hinton, Tyson, Bursill and others contributed  to  the  programme  and   Mr.
J. W. Weart gave a splendid little
essay on Canadian History worth
remembering.
And Mr. Martin's speech���what of
that? Well it was fully reported and
you can all guess it was a candid,
fearless indictment of everybody's
policy but the policy of Joe Martin.
He lashed the naval policies of Borden and Laurier, and advocated development of the country as better
than building battleships and scarified
the self-seeking "imperialists," who
do a lot of flag-flapping and boost
"fake" industrial propositions. It
was a characteristic "Joe Martin"
ovation and the Collingwood Parliament is to be congratulated on having got Mr. Martin to talk to the
House. Joseph Martin never speaks
but he says something.
MR. H. B. A. VOGEL
Who has been appointed secretary of the North Fraser Harbor. Board.
Mr. Vogel has been an indefatigable worker for the development of the
North Arm. He was the first Honorary Vice-President of the South Vancouver Board of Trade and was a member of the Council and Fraser Development Committee, where his energies were always bent towards the development of this arm of the Fraser. A year ago he was a member of the
South Vancouver School Board, but resigned about the middle of the year SATURDAY,  DECEMBER 6,  1913.

What Book is More Used Than The
Telephone  Directory?
Advertising space is valuable, because the book is in use
by everybody, on duty constantly, every day in the year.
It is the only medium that cannot be read at one sitting
and then laid aside and forgotten.
The Telephone and the Directory never part company.
Side by side with the means of advertising, it is the means
of making the sale.
Do you not think it should have your careful consideration?

Trade unionists in Vancouver and
Xew Westminster unite in expressing
sympathy to Alderman Dodd, of New-
Westminster, on the death of his
wife. The iabor alderman of New-
Westminster has been an untiring
worker in the labor movement and
has been responsible for a whole lot
of wise municipal reform in the
Royal Cily.
There was an  enthusiastic meeting
held in  the  Labor Temple last week
at which delegates from 30 odd unions
were present.    The meeting was call-!
cd for the purpose of seeing if it were j
possible   tee   weld   the   workers   into j
one party to take action In the muni-!
cipal, provincial and federal elections. |
An animated discussion took place,
at all times in the best of good feel-i
ing and it was agreed to call a con-|
vention on Wednesday, December 17,!
at 8 p.m., in Room 401, Labor Temple,-.
All who are interested and can,
agree on thc following conditions arc |
cordially   invited   to  attend :
Persons entitled to participate in j
the  Convention   shall  bc :
1. Members of the various Locals of:
the Social Democratic Party in Vancouver district;
2. Members of trades or industrial
unions, disclaiming political affilia- j
tion with any other parties and recognizing thc necessity for an hide-!
pendent working class party; the object of which shall be to make possible a political and industrial democracy, in which the land, mines, factories, railroads, etc. (thc social tools
of wealth production) shall be owned by thc community and operated
for the common  good.
Admission to thc convention will be
granted to any person showing a
Union card or card of membership in
the Social Democratic Party.
It might bc pointed out here that
the Social Democratic Party is quite
distinct from the Socialist Party of
Canada. Te former party believe in
taking the line of least resistance and
going intei municipal and parliamentary politics with thc object of securing reforms whenever possible. By
--I doing, they contend they are accomplishing something in the betterment of conditions to the worker
which will enable him to progress
still further in the line of complete
emancipation,
The Socialist Party of Canada,
again, do not want reform. Their
doctrine as laid down practically
amounts to this. If you are dissatisfied with present conditions, become
a Socialist and wait.
We have great hopes for the new
organization. Tl has been long talked of and with thc old country people here who are familiar with the
workings and thc great amount of
/.���nod the Labor Party has done at
hone, it should hi.ee their ready support.
To the worker who has stood aloof
from the  two orthodox parties there
is  now  being  given  a  chance  to  use
his vote for the common i

Conditions in the building trades
are somewhat improved according te,
the reports of delegates to the council. Most unions report initiations at
every meeting, but the issuance of
clearance cards keeps the membership  at  about  thc  same  number.
St     *     Sr
At present writing there arc a large
number  of builders' laborers  out  of:
employment.    Business  Agent    John
Sully stated that affairs regarding organization   matters   wcre,     however,
satisfactory.    Heretofore the unskill- j
ed   workmen   have   been   supporting
two unions, because thc great amount '
of work going on in the city demanded   separate   organizations,     namely, J
Civic Employees' Union, No. 65, with |
its jurisdiction as defined by the  A. \
F.  of   L.,   and   the   general   Builders' 1
Laborers Union, No. 230, as connect- j
ed with  the  building trades  general-1
ly.    It has now been decided to sus-1
pend  thc  latter charter, its  members ;
being enrolled in the former body to |
the   mutual   satisfaction   of  all     concerned.     By   so   doing,   the   laborers
cut  down   their  expenses  without  in
any  way  weakening  their  system  of
organization, but in reality they will
maintain   their   old-time   strength   as
an active organized body.
It is expected that in the near future two large public works will
again be started. Thc sewer commissioners having in hand the building
of a proposed joint sewerage system
for Point Grey and Burnaby municipalities and the city of Vancouver,
are now calling for tenders for same.
Besides thc contemplated partnership water main for these districts
will be laid across False Creek as
soon as the plans have been approved by the Ottawa government. This
huge undertaking will require the services of 400 or 500 men when thc
work commences.
Both these contracts will include
the civic wage clause, which provides
the payment of 37^ cents an hour
for "top men," and 40 cents for men
! who work below thc seven-foot level,
|and a 44-hour week, with half-holiday on Saturday.
*    *    *
The   Canadian   and   United   States
| districts of tbe Amalgamated Society
of   Carpenters  and Joiners  have  decided as a whole, with the consent of
the general society, after a plebiscite
vote of its members had been taken,
! to agree to lhe "plan of solidification
| of the Amalgamated Societies of Car-
1 penters  and  Joiners  and  the   United
I Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America."    The plan was submitted by the joint committee of both
organizations early in  the year.   The
local societies after  careful consideration at a general meeting the other
night decided to accept the proposed
plan, which provides that each  party
retain   its   constitution  and  rules    as
heretofore  prevailed.    An  agent  will
bc  selected by the new joint disirict
council  when it is in working order.
The new agreement will go into effect  em  January  1, next.    It  may be
added that the two bodies in Vancouver have always pulled well together,
and this is but a further demonstra-
tieni  of  its  geiod  feeling that  has  al-
ways existed.

sarc pint wi' abody this past year or pire at llame. We never fund oot
twa an' I wis noticiu' that among the   tbere  wis  sic a  thing  until  we  read
various businesses that had been feelin1 thc pinch wis thc theatres an' picture shows.
As faur as 1 can see, these places
o' amusement are gaun tae hae a bad
time in thc next month or twa ta;
come.
Thc folk oot in Sooth Vancoover
arc no' blessed wi' ony millyuiiaire
tac gie them ony thing free in the
shape o' entertainment but at this
time .e' the year there's aye wan or
twa volunteers come forrit willin' tae
dae thc honors. I can tell yae, if the

wan o' Dicky McBride's speeches.
Noo, I dinna intend tae criticise
the various performers. When a man
gets free admisshun intae a show ee'
-neb a nature it's bad taste for him
lae tin' fault wi' the actors.
Hooever, a few random refleck-
shuns wudna be oot o' place. 1 wudna
hae missed that meetin' for a whole
lot.
1 jisl got there in time tae hear
the "star" turn. At least so they had
it on the programme but as I aye prefer a comic song tae a sentymental, so
elid 1 like thc turn that followed immediately efter.
The new candidate for thc reeveship wis on his feet cxpoundin' on thc
varieetis planks -.' his pletform. He
made a very lucid speech an' at the
close wis gien enough applause tac
warrant an encore in ony ordinary
place o' amusement���but there wis a
lot o' guid talent yet tae come an' the
audience didna insist.
I wis wonderin' if this wis the
same man that had gien the forty odd
reasons why hc wudna run for the
recveship. Twa o' his reasons���tae
quote frae his letter in the papers-
were: "I have iui ambition to be in
public life. I have no aptitude for.
anil take no pleasure in handling public business."
It could hardly be the same man.
though, yet it's hard in say.
Yae ken this is a wunnerfu place,
B.C. The air oot here is sic a pecul-
yar brand that a man is no' twa days
alike hr his thinkin'.
1 min' o' a chum o' mine layin'
off tae me wan nicht when wc were
comin' hame frae oor work a long
story aboot the real estate sharks, as
he ca'd them. He couldna get words
strong enough���an' hc wis cursin' an'
swearin' at that���tae condemn their
methods. I met this fellie a week
efter an' yae wud be surprised at the
chenge that had come eiwrc him in
the interval. He seemed tac hae
grown an inch or twa taller an' iu a
general convcrsashnn we had he began layin' off a' aboot the "tremendous possibilities" here.
I wisna long in jalousin' he had
beicht a lot. "It's fine stuff, Sandy;
it'll double in vailue in a year. High
an' dry an' no flies about it." I dinna
wonder at his optimism, especially if
the latter pairt o' what he said wis
true.
Hooever, tae get back tae the meet-
in', as I wis sayin', the rale titbit wis
tae come.
We hae a representative, at least
we think  we  hae,  in  the  provincial
parliament. When we think o' this
fellie it's generally because o' an office
bildin' doon in the city that's ca'd
efter him. In the same wey when
wc think o' Mr. Gold we think o' the
Gold hits. Yet wan thing tae his cre-
dit, he comes among us a wee bet
oftener. I min' when I first came up
Main Street I wis attractit tac the
sign painted on the schaake, "The
Gold Lots."
I naturally thocht there wis some
gold mines roon aboot an' takin' a
stroll across them I met a fellie car-
ryin' a pick owre his shouther. Thinks
I this maun be wan o' the miners
an' 1 goes up tae him an' asks if I
had ony chance o'  stakin' a  claim.
"Naethin' daen," he says; "this
land witna be Belt until we're annexed
tae the city; then it'll double in value."
Weel, this is aye what wc think o'
when wc speak o' Mr. Gold.
Tae come tae the pint, though, he
made a rattlin' guid speech. There's
wan thing I aye gie a mar. credit for,
that is, for speakin' his mind, an'' he
certainly didna hide onything frae his
opponents. He's quite a relief frae
the ordinary style o' cooncillor.
Hc has a takin' style, nae questyin
aboot that. I'm jist thinkin' if he
could by ony means get intae a kilt
an' learn the Scottish doric he wud
knock Harry Lauder intae a cockit
hat as an entertainer.
Shakespeare says "Now is the winter of our discontent," but wc, up in
Sooth Vancoover, hinna got much tae
be discontented aboot. A wheen mare
o' they kin' o' mcctins an' we'll sune
forget  a'  aboot  that  "   cooncil
up there" an' the government owre in
Victoria.

Bonds to the extent of $200,000
were sold by the Municipality of
Semth Vancouver during the latter
part of last week. While no announcement of the price was given out it
is understood that something in the
neighborhood of 90 was secured. On
an exceptionally dull market this
price will no doubt be considered to
be a good one. Thc issue was taken
un by New Vork men.
The etiect ei this sale will be to
relieve financial conditions in the
government of thc municipality. Considerable of the money will he used
in covering advances made by the
bank to South Vancouver, but there
will be still something left with which
to do a certain amount of work. It
will have the effect of putting about
sixty or seventy men to work and
this number at least will no doubt be
employed by South Vancouver during the wirier. Nearly thirty men
have   been   constantly   employed   by
thc municipality at road work and
other purposes even during the
stringency  of the  summer  months.
It is slated that it is llie intention
of the fiscal agents to place the consolidated bonds ed tbe municipality,
amounting lo something over $2,-
000,000 on (he market in London very
soon, when it is hoped that they will
receive favorable treatment from the
financiers eef the Old Country. Should
these bonds be taken up there wouhl
still be something like $295,000 in unsold btends which it is thought will
bc disposed of on the New York market within the next few weeks.
"It is my opinion that wc will have
succeeded in disposing of all the unsold bonds of the municipality before
February 1, next," said Reeve Kerr
to a representative of the "Chinook"
this week. "By that time I hope that
the financial affairs of South Vancouver wilt be in excellent shape."

. In regard to the demands made by
various ratepayers in South Vancouver for retrenchment in municipal
management, Municipal Clerk Springford has made the following statement respecting economics effected
during 1913 at the hall: "On June 30
there were 105 persons on thc municipal staff, including police and lire
departments, girl clerks, stenographer! and office boy. The payroll was
$4979.80 for the two weeks ended
June 30. During July the staff was
reduced to 91 persons, and in October
to 77 with a payroll of $3729.30. At
thc present time the staff numbers
76. Eighteen eif these arc connected
with thc police and 11 with the fire
departments, leaving a staff eif 45 in
the varieetis offices and associated with
the wiring, building, engineering.

A delegation composed of Messrs.
Robt. E. McBride, Kenneth Murray
and J. H. Baird waited upon Mayor
Baxter last Thursday and asked that
the city charter be amended to give
the city power to annex the municipality of South Vancouver. The realms given were mainly economic, including the estimated decreased cost
of administration. In reply, Mayor
Baxter held out no encouragement
that the request would bc considered at the present time, stating that it
was too late for the city to apply for
charter amendments this year without incurring considerable additional
expense. He pointed out that the
city's charter only provided for tin
taking in of five miles of territory
and that no provision was made for
assuming the bonded indebtedness of
any district annexed.

TELEPHONE DEVELOPMENT
IN SOUTH VANCOUVER
Steady   Growth   in   Telephone   Use
During  Past Year
Fraser Exchange is now located in
a building of its own un Fifty-first
Avenue, just east of Fraser Avenue,
thc cttl-over to thc new structure having taken place on October 18. The
I!. C. Telephone Company opened a
separate exchange in South Vancouver in February, 1912. this being
known as Fraser. This action was
necessary because of the growth of
that district, for it was only by that
means lhat adequate telephone service Could be supplied. There were
J92 subscribers at that time, while today there are 150, indicating that expansion has been steatly. From thc
opening of tlu- exchange until December 31, 1912, the growth was 33
per cent., while from Janauary 1, 1913,
lo the present thc growth has been
17.8 per cent.
The new exchange on F'ifty-first
Avenue has switchboard facilities for
500 subscribers, with an ultimate capacity of 2,400. This will enable the
company to provide for future growth
for some time.
South Vancouver is served by two
exchanges, the other being at Collingwood T'^ast. and is known as Collingwood. When plans were made to
take care of the extensive territory
seiuth anel cast of Vancouver proper
and reaching to thc Fraser River, it
was seen that one central exchange
would hardly serve the purpose when
the population of the district got
much larger. Homebuilding has proceeded on a large scale in South
Vancouver during thc past five years,
and with excellent tram service the
population will keep on increasing.
It is with an eye to the future that tlie
B. C. Telephone Company established two exchanges and now has completed a larger building to hems-.- the
exchange, whieh has for the past year
anil a halt been located in rented
quarters  on  Fraser Avenue.
Outside construction included the
placing of a 200-pair telephone cable
for a distance of ten blocks and a 400-
pair cable from the main line to tbe
new office, as well as additional toll
circuits.
There is an operating staff of four
at tbe new Fraier Exchange, Miss
McCreight being chief operator.���

Mr. Morris for Ward I
There is a possibility that Mr. Wm.
Morris will not run for the reeveship

Instead there is a possibility that he

retiring from lhe recvcship contest
and entering thc ce nt.-st for Ward
I, friends of his are hopeful that he
nay secure the election by acclamation.

"Our wives" has been drawing
splendid houses all the week and this
play by a practically unknown author has proved a revelation to the
majority of our playgoers. Its absolutely clean fun, brilliant dialogue
and laughable situations, ami all so
unforced and natural, commend it ;i<
one of the brightest and mosl origi-
Jeiniiseen Forbes Robertson's great
role of the Stranger. Mr. Nelson is
splendidly adapted t'e the part both
in temperament and technique, and he
will play it with that repression and
polien which is necessary to mak.
the r.ele effective. As tbe cockney
slavey, Anastasia, Isabelle Fletcher
will nave an entirely different se,rt ol
part   than   she   is   usually     identified
with,    it will afford full opportunity
fe.r her taUiiis as a comedienne and
will emphasize her remarkable versatility. Mi-s Marie Steven- as the
landlady, and Mis- Marsky as the
"Painted Laely" have line assignments,
while- Charles Ayres, as the musician,
Frank McQuarrie as the racetrack
bookmaker .Torn Loftus a- Major
Tompkins, Will Lloyd as Larkini the
musician, and Frank Wallace as
Samuel-, the mine promoter, will supply a vast amount of pathos and Intnl.,r. The air of mystery which
shrouds "The- Passing fi jlu- Third
Floor Back" gives it a particular fascination that i.s alnieest uncanny. As
an argument leer better living no play
can equal it anil the followers of
Christian Science claim it as one of
theii   nn-t   convincing mediums.
Thc  customary  Thursday .and  Sat-
urday matinees will be given.

The distinguished British artist is

so beneficial an influence as has this

of the giants eif the stage. There is
no lack of comedy and sentimental interest in the play, however, for the
other characters are as mixed a lot

EASIER MOXEY
WITH the sale of bonds of the municipality of
South Vancouver to the extent of $200,000
within the past week, the financial outlook of this
municipality is taking on a much more ruddy hue.
Not that South Vancouver ever approached thc condition of receiver-hip which many have stated, and
who even yet go out of their way to maim the credit
of South Vancouver by belittling its financial position.
South Vancouver is in no worse position than the
olher municipalities which touch her borders. In
fact it is well known to those who shouhl know that
South Vancouver lias been a great deal better off
than the other municipalities during the present days
of money stringency.
The recent sale of bonds will restore a great deal
of confidence both among the men who make a business of buying bonds and in South Vancouver. It is
also an indication that there are prospects of an improvement in the money market, in which event it
should be possible for this municipality to dispose of
the balance of its unsold bonds and place its financial
matters in better shape than they have been for some
time past.
SECRETARY H. B. A. VOGEL
THE appointment of Mr. If. P.. A. Vogel to the
secretaryship of the Xorth Harbor Commission
is a tribute to South Vancouver for the part this municipality has played in the development plans for the
North Arm of the Fraser River. Also is it a happy
appointment in that of all the advocates who have
persistently and insistently demanded harbor improvements on this arm there has been no more energetic
worker than the new secretary of the board. Mr.
Vogel should therefore find the surroundings in his
new appointment entirely congenial in every respect
and the commission on the other hand will have se-
1 cured the services of a thoroughly competent and experienced official.
The operations of the commission are being watched
with great interest hy all the municipalities, anil from
now on announcements of a more definite nature may
be expected. South Vancouver will particularly watch
the trend of harbor development along this arm of
the Fraser, for with the creation of an industrial section along the banks of this water it is quite
evident that of all the municipalities probably South
Vancouver is the one which will be most benefitted by
the harbor improvements planned by the commission.
Industries demand rail and water transportation. Rail
facilities are already at their door, and with the dredging of the channel and building of wharves along the
waterfront the question of water facilities will have
been solved also.
With the opening of the Panama Canal less than
two years distant, with the improvement of the channel of the North Arm of the Fraser and with .activities of many industrial concerns to get located at the
Coast to the very best advantage. South Vancouver
should be able to emerge with a fair start towards
what ultimately will become the industrial centre of
Greater Vancouver.
will be a particularly unwelcome guest. A law should
be passed disqualifying any candidate who took the
opportunity to knock the municipality to further his
own election ends.
THE APPROACHING ELECTIONS
VERY soon the municipality of South Vancouver
will be in the throes of a civic election. At election times many things are said by the different candidates in the heat of the battle which under ordinary
circumstances would remain unsaid. Very often
things derogatory to thc best interests of the municipality are shouted from the platforms which cannot
help any of the parties concerned and which might
do the municipality a great deal of harm. It should
he the aim of every candidate to stick closely to facts
in the coming election and not do South Vancouver
an injury which might have been avoided by a little
more research.
Everything points to the fact that the coming election will uncover one of the most brisk campaigns
which has to date been fought in the municipal arena
of South Vancoover, On all sides there seems to be
greater interest than heretofore on matters of public
welfare, and this is probably one of the most satisfactory features to the prospects of the approaching
election. Good, healthy interest must be shown by the
electorate before there is any assurance that the most
capable body of men can be named to take care of the
business of the municipality.
It is to be hoped, however, that the knocker will not
make his appearance during the next few months. He
THE STRAIN OF CITY LIFE
<<rT,HERE is a melancholy page in the latest report
1 made public by the census bureau," says the
Chicago "Tribune."
"In cold figures is verified the oft-repeated charge
that the present day industry with its terrific pressure
is slicing off years from the life of the average worker.
It is the strain of the city's life and industry that
breaks man tlown."
Commenting on the report of the l'nited States
Census Bureau the Chicago paper says further:
"The striking manner in which industrial cities cut
dowii men's lives is shown by a study of the comparative number of deaths at various ages in industrial
cities and in rural communities. In Chicago, for instance, the number of those who die between the ages
of thirty-five and fifty-four is sixty-one per thousand
persons. It is higher in New Vork antl Boston. In
the state of Indiana, on tht other hand, the number of
deaths per thousand people of the same age is but
thirty-nine. The figures are approximately the same
for all cities and for all rural communities."
City life, therefore, is in the Stales a "short life and
a merry one."
Without the constant influx of new antl healthy
blood from the country, the cities would all but extinguish themselves in a few generations.
OVERCROWDED PROFESSIOXS
A SURVEY of the professions shows that most
of them are overcrowded. The- trend of education should be to prevent every youth from getting
the impression that if he fails to select one of the
so-called "learned professions" hc falls short of that
high aim in life which is supposed to bring credit upon
a proud family line.
Modern educational methods are adding to the
efficiency of the man who combines energy of intellect with technical skill in the doing of things which
millions are asking to have accomplished.
While hundreds of young doctors and lawyers are
barely ekeing out a living, the demand for thoroughly
equipped men to plan and supervise the constructive
work of the workatlay world is in excess of the supply.
Perhaps if is useless to tell the youth that there is
more chance of success in becoming an efficient farmer than any of the professions, but nevertheless it is
true.

Nor hearts of oak in daring, fearless, brave,
Bestrew thy decks the onslaught to repel;

Involuntary praise while tempests rave:

Beneath the waters thou didst love so well.

When wind and sail still laughed and mocked at steam

At roll-call may not grace more fitting tomb.
���T.M.1I.
THE SPIRIT OF LARKIN ISM
A SYMPTOM of world-wide interest is the manner in which James Larkin is holding public
attention in Great Britain by his preaching of labor's
ideals.  The same revolutionary ideas which are working with such intensity in Great Britain in regard to
capital and labor are evident to the same degree in
France, Germany and the United States, ami in lesser
tlegree have already been manifested in tlle form of
Liberal legislation, while they are said to be responsible
for the promised land reform of the Asquith government.  Larkin, probably tiring of the rate of progress,
is eager to bring things to a crisis, by the methods of a
general   strike.  This,  hc  apparently  believes,  would
result in bringing capital on its knees to the feet of
labor, whereas the more probable effect wouhl be to
-et back the cause of labor for many years. A general
trike would  inevitably collapse  in  short order;  the
universal  suffering and starvation  which would  remit precludes the whole body of the people from abstaining from labor for any length of time. Larkin's
fiery excesses, nevertheless, draws  attention to real
���grievances, and emphasizes the need of drastic remedies
:or social evils. Bernard Shaw says there is nothing
evrong with  the poor but poverty.    Larkin's whole
philosophy could probably be  summarised  into that
pigram.   At any rate, his whole aim appears to be to
arouse the workers to the demand for a greater share
'ri the world's wealth.
Precisely the same gospel i.s being preached in the
'nited States by among others the Secretary of Lab-
>r, W.  11. Wilson.    Mr. Wilson has put forward a
ormula  for the confiscation  of property that  is  as
-'volutionary as anything preached by Larkin.    Hav-
'g inquired, for instance, into the conditions in the
lichigan copper mines, he declares that he will make
ublic not only the wages paid to the miners, the hour-
f labor, and other conditions, "but the enormous pro-
its of the mine owners." The making of these "enor-
notis profits" appears to be. in his judgment, a misuse of the property.
Students of social economy will not admit that it is
���ossible under present conditions for either an indivi-
lual or a corporation to tlo as it pleases with property
it owns. The employer cannot do as he pleases with
labor he employs, either in the matter of wages or con-
litions. Property has to be administered with a due
regard to local antl national welfare, for regulations in
the interests of humanity antl fair dealing have already
gone pretty far. and will go further yet. The point
which Mr. Wilson takes, and which is preached by
Larkin and the Syndicalists, is that the profits of a
private calling may themselves become a justification
for the confiscation of property by the State. If toil
doctrine is to be accepted, where are we to stop?
THE HIGH COST OF LH 'ING
PROTESTS are being made in many of the cities
of Canada against the high cost of living antl
appeals have been made to Premier Borden to take
the question under his consideration. Montreal orti-
cially registered a protest and now Winnipeg is following suit.
In Germany, another protectionist country, the cost
of living has mounted to such a height in recent times
that the only solution has been found in the action of
carious municipalities in model at ing the prices of staple food articles. Two years ago almost prohibitory
market prices of potatoes, attributed to a shortage of
crop, moved the authorities of Xuremburg to buy these
vegetables in quantity and retail them to the people
practically at cost Later the soaring prices of meats
similarly engaged official attention, antl the American
consul at Xuremburg. Geo. Xicolas Ifft, has reported
ii tcrestinglv on the manner of dealing with the situation.
Meat prices were so high in 1912 that the city council sought to encourage the use of fish as a substitute.
From October of that year to May 1, 1913, the city
bought in round number 182,000 pounds of fish antl
retailed it at actual cost. The city also established
free weekly courses in fish cooking, to which the wives
of workingmen were especially invited, and thousands
of copies of a little fish cookbook were distributed
free. Discontinued during the summer, the municipal fish markets and cooking schools were reopened
last month.
Meat having gone up from thirty-two to forty-four
cents a pound for gootl beef, with other meats in proportion. Xuremburg also decided to buy meats and
sell them at cost. At first an attempt was made to
operate through the butchers' guild, but this failed of
working satisfactorily, and city markets were opened.
Prices took a big drop. Beef has been retailetl at
seventeen to eighteen and a half cents a pound. The
retail butchers have maintained considerably higher
rates, but the people of Xuremburg are not obliged to
pay them. The city meat and fish markets are to he
continued indefinitely.
Canada has not only the meat question to face but
wearing apparel question, and many other questions
closely associated with the high cost of living.    Little
or no attention is paid to the common people by tin
authorities at Ottawa and the high cost of living continues at the expense of the common people.
BY THE WAY
m.
IX THE QUESTION of the high cost of living ther.
are several causes which contribute to this state of
affairs. One is the fluty which the government imposes on things that we wear and eat. Until such
time as this duty is removed there will be little hop,
of reducing the cost of living.

THE HIGH-GRADER'S CORNER
The Greatest Issue in Canada
Toronto Globe
Thc question of tariff taxation is the greatest issue
in Canadian public life, and the Liberal party must
face it. There seems to be practical unanimity in favor
of continuing the fight for the abolition of food taxes.
There is a disposition to add measures to relieve the
farmer and the manufacturer of prepared food of
duties upon implements antl machinery used in the
production of foodstuffs.

Tlu Races of Mankind
Ottawa Journal
A Western Canadian newspaper criticises Russia
for its popular hatred of the Jews as a race and then
goes on to say that this country is no place for race
hatred, as equality is the foundation stone upon which
we are endeavoring to build our nation. The remarks,
it is presumed, are not meant to include within their
meaning Hindoos antl other Orientals whom Canada
puts up bars against. There is race hatred here as
well as in the Czar's empire.

-active to the boys.   The mistake of .those who give
<K-ice   in   this  matter   is  their  suggestion   that  the
farmer's boy works hard all day anil reads agricultural
literature at night, gaining his entertainment from
sombre bulletins and reports.

Vcgrcvillc Feeling Enlarged
Calgary Albertan
Vegreville has recently been extending its boundaries, and the local paper, by a little calculation, is
able to reveal the fact that the town now has an area
of 2100 acres. Following out its arduous mental labors in the interest of public knowledge, further figuring enables the journal to state that, allowing only
ten to the acre, Vegreville can now accommodate a
population of 21,000. The mere contemplation of these
figures is said to be making the townspeople feel quite
crowded.

What Ails This Continent. Anyivay?
Montreal Herald
An English naval officer who has just toured Canada and the l'nited States has been telling a New York
newspaper that he cannot understand why the men
of America do not wear evening dress more generally. He noticed that even in the "swagger" restaurants and theatres of the metropolis few men were to
be seen in dress suits. The same fault has led other
visitors from Europe to make similar comment. What
ails this continent, anyway? Is it that they haven't
time to change between the blowing of the six o'clock
whistle and the hour for theatre opening, or is it that
they are too lazy.

Sunday Overeating in Toronto the Good
Toronto Telegram
The man who exacts a big Sunday dinner is asking
more from his wife than he should be given.   Simpler
meals for Sunday are being advocated, and are so
much in accord with common sense that they ought to
become popular.    Two reasons are advanced, either
being sufficient  foundation  for a reform.    The first
reason  is  that   with  simpler  Sunday dinners  mother
will share Sunday as a day of rest.   The second rea-
e.n is that plainer Sunday dinners remove a temptation to overeating and save the diner from the couse-
quences of overindulgence. SATURDAY,  DECEMBER 6,  1913.

Capt. Lawrence- Holbrook, late of
the Philippine ceenstaliulary, was on
his way tu the office of Jttdion Flagg.
Ile had two appointment! that evening. One was with Robert Dempster,
chief of the United Stales Secret Service, wlm had ingenuously requested
him le, throw sonic light em Ihe filibustering activities of a mysterious
adventurer named Adam, which mysterious adventure happened to be
none other than Holbrook. The other
I was with  Flagg.
Holbrook contemplated both inter-
; views with pleasure.   There would be
j exhilaration in fooling Dempster, and
delight in  whipping  Flagg.    He had
never   seen   Flagg,   had   never   even
given him a passing thought until that
dav   but  he  felt  sure   that  whipping
j him  would be  a  peculiarly charming
experience.   Twice within lhe course
j ot   twenty-four   hours   this   unknown
I man   had   intruded   upon   his   private
I affairs. In the first place, the morning
papera  had announced  that lie,  Hol-
j brook was engaged to Aline Graham.
Nov   there   was   nothing   Holbrook
! would have liked so much as to have
been able to confirm that statement,
but since he could not, ils publication
annoyed him exceedingly.   Also it did
not help his chances.
"Win. authorized it?" he had asked
in confidence from a newspaper friend
Land, in confidence,    the    newspaper
| friend had replied that he thought the
source to be Judson  Flagg.
The name had recalled something,
Wasn't this Judsem Flagg some kind
of a crook, a blackmailer or something? The newspaper friend had re-
plied that In- was correct. Judson
Flagg was one eif the most notorious
ami smoothest blackmailers in tin.
United Stales. Ostensibly, he was
an attorney, but the only cases he
! ever handled were the kind that could
be  settled  quietly  out  of court.
"Well," Holbrook had observe.!,
"if he thinks he's going to rig up
some kind of a deal on me, he's made
a   mistake."
Still, he couldn't make it out.    The
thing puzzled him all day.    Hc had a
spectacular past, but  there was nothing dishonorable  in it.    Hc had been
a revolutionist, a filibuster, and sevcr-
I al  other kinds  eif adventurer, but  he
had   never   been   a   crook.    He  was
still  worrying  about  it  that  evening
when   he   called   at   Aline   Graham's
| home to see if the embarassment resulting  fre,m   tlie    unwarranted    announcement   could    be    straightened
: out.    It  could  be���with  Aline.     Her
father, Gordon Graham was a United
I States District Attorney, and as a defender  of  law  and  order  he  had  always   been   inclined   to   regard   Holbrook  askance.    Holbrook, so far as
he  had  been  able  to  ascertain,  had
| no respect whatever  for law and or-
j der.    The  two  men   had  come  close
to a quarrel, but, in the long run, Hol-
brook's   candor   and   engaging   gooel-
nature   had   saved   the   day.
Things had seemed nicely smoothed out. Then there had come a telephone rail. Aline had answered it.
Thi ensuing conversation and its immediate results had set a new flame
I to Ilolhrook's anger.
"l-'lagg?" Aline had said, "Judson
I Flagg? VVI.v I dont know vou.
j What's that? Oh, no, no, no! I
can't talk to you men-! I'll call you
later!" Then. half-hystericaUy, She
hail hung up the receiver and begged
HolbroOR to ye. away. He- had gone
���what else could he dp? But hc had
gone- straight to Flagg's office.
A palid boy eef seventeen or eighteen   answered   his   knock.
"Ne.." lu- said, "Mr. Flagg Is nol
in. I Ic-'l! In Back iii an hour." 1 f< I-
brOOk eyed him doubtedly. and looked at his watch.
"I don't believe you." he saiel. "Ini
I have- another engagement, and can'l
wait t.e find ont whether yotir're a
liar. Ye.u can toll Mr. Flagg thai
I'll call later." Then he went e.n t..
his appointment with Dempster, the
Sen iee- chief.
When Ik- had gone. Judson F'lagg,

he was expecting another visitor, and
he did not wanl ll.elbreiok and lhat
other visitor te. meet.
"Tommy," he called lo his pallid
assistant.    "Fix  lhe  flashlight."
The beey busied himself with an apparatus near the door.    It was a cam-1
era,   carefully   arranged   in     such     a I
manner,   that   by   pressing   a   button,!
Flagg  could   secure  a  photograph  of i
everyone   who   entered     his     office. \
When   Flagg  brought a blackmailing
letter freim se,mo butler or housemaid,,
he teeok a picture of his visitor. Then
the   butler   or   housemaid   Could   neit
deny the transaction had taken  place.]
"You can  go to bed  now,"   Flagg i
said,   when   llle   adjustment     of     the!
camera was completed,   The boy was
his  nephew  and  slept   in   a   near  by
roeein.    "Yieu'rc a good boy, Tommy.".
Thc boy nodded.    Flagg sat down al
his  desk.     "A   very   good  boy.     An.l
thc best thing about you is that you
keep y.iur nieiuth shut.    Geiod night."
Tin   doeir  closed.   Flagg  was  alone.
He stretched his long legs beneath
the desk, and ran swiftly thrnugii
some  papers.
"Graham,"   he   muttered.     His   fingers   turned   the   panes   of   an   index. '���
"Aline, Daughter of Gordon Graham.1
United  States  District-Attorney.    Se-.
Cret   marriage,   probably   false.     One
letter."    lie arose and started toward'
his safe.   As he did see the de.eir open-,
ed   and   Aline   Graham   entered   thc
room.
Flagg   start.-el.     lie   had     a     weak
heart,   and   surprises   affected     him i
badly.
"One moment," he apologised.    II.
wavered uneasily for a moment, then i
sank  into  his desk chair.    Slowly  he
recoiered   his   strength.    "Miss   Graham?"
"Yes.     I  have  come "
"Never mind that. X. >t just now."
Ile surveyed her appraisingly. "By
jove. Miss Graham, you're a damned'
pretty woman!" The subtle contempt of one who holds the reins was
mingled with appreciation in his lone.
"Have a chair?"
"I didn't come feir that," replied his
visitor, breathlessly. She remained
standing. "You said you had a letter.
Where is it?"
"Not So fast," drawled Flagg.
"Xow "
"You haven't it!" challenged his
visitori    "You can'l show it to me."
F'lagg eyed her sardonically, Ihen
moved slowly to his safe, lie drew
from it an envelope.
"Sit   il'iwn,"   he   urged   again.     Unwillingly Miss Graham complied. The

"Don't touch  me!"
"Then give me- tl'    letti r!"
"I we.n't. It is mine. You have
,,,    right   to  it "    The  woman   Started
toward the door. Flagg grasped her.
At thc physical touch he seemed to
lose control of himself. He forced
her  lips to his.
"I'll get the letter and I'll get you
too!" His grasp tightened. Struggling, Ihey reeled toward the desk.
The woman's hand suddenly closed

"Xo you elou't!" He reached f'er

letter-file  cam.   .|..wn,  striking  him

was the boom ami puff of a flashlight.
The deior doted, F'lagg. clutching
the emerald brooch in ..ne hand anel
tlle letter-file in the other, sank int..
a   chair,   dead.
It was thus that his nephew, awakened by the noise, found him. Theii..lice were summoned. Holbrook,
talking with Dempster at tin- secrel
service man's home, was one of the
!ir=t  to hear the news.
"Too bad," he- regretled. "Some-
body's beat me to it." Dempster did
not  hear  him.
"Come up there with me." he invited. "We'll see how the Philippine
constabulary mate-lies up against the
secret service."
Tii.    peelicc   were   in   charge   when
tluy   reached   th.-   room,     Holbrook,
whose   life   had   trained   his   eyes   to
emergency   service,   saw   the   i.r
clutched  in  the dead man's  hand.
"Aline'sl" he exclaimed. While
Dempster investigated the windows

"Whal do you make of it?" inquired    Dempster,   returning,      lloll.

Dempster  eyed  his  amazedly
"Why"���he   began;   then   hi-
fell een the  flashlight apparatus.
"What'-   that:-"
The palid boy, who was being q
tioned,   t.jld   him.    Dempster   ripped
the camera from lhe wall and handed
it 1o a patrolman.
"Don't let anybody touch ihat," he
commanded. The patrolman put the
camera on the desk and put in- hand
on   it.
"Yes, sir." Again Dempster's investigations called him out of the
room.     Ilollir..ok   had   guessed   what
was e.n ilu- camera-plate. He hael te.
have it. He engaged the patrolman
in conversation. Had the patrolman
ever had a brother in the Philippine
constabulary? No? Well, well. And
there hail been one of the finest fellows thai looked just like thc patrolman? Would tin- patrolman have a
cigar? Yes? Ah, how unfortunate!
The cigar had missed thc patrolman's
lingers and fallen to the floor, on tlle
side opposite from the ham! which

bent to pick it up. As be did so Holbrook swiftly slipped the plateholdcr

and, when tiie patrolmaj l"oked up,

In   a   moment   Dempster   re-tu:

The teams in the Pacific Coasl
Hockey Association will get down te>
lhe real thing on Friday night of this
week when the Vancouver anel New
Westminster clubs clash in the opening engagement of the season at the
Arena rink in Vancouver. For three
months hence the Coast should see
a bitter light for the supremacy in the
Patrick  organization.
The  three  clubs  will  line  up  very
much in the same manner as they did
a year ago.    There will be new  faces
, but more or less the combinations of
'a year ago will  be kept intact.    Ex-
| perts  tit  the  present  time figure  that
j thc Vancouver and Westminster clubs
have possibly been strengthened most
, by these changes, but time can alone
develop the truth.    At any rate Lester   Patrick  is   saying  nothing  about
his  Victoria  champions.
Hockey of today is quite a different thing to hockey of a few years
ago. Speed has been the thing aimed at in every change. In the East
the clubs decided to drop thc seventh
man because they thought it would
make the game faster. Only a few
weeks ago the Coast League decided
on a drastic change to the offside
rule in the hope that more action
would bc secured and that there would
be an elimination of many of the
tedious waits and interruptions to the
game.
All of this craze for speed, which
in turn is planned to attract and hold
the spectator, demands greater physical exertion on the part of the play
ers. The hockey player of today musl
be physically tit or there- i- it" room
ni- him on any of the lirst class
teams. To be in such a condition he
must deveete his entire time te' the
game and tee do s.ich and live he must
receive recompense in proportion tee
liis value tee the club. Professional
hockey there-lore will always command the greater attention in Canada's national winter game.

Beauty in Intelligence
Beauty  lies   in  intelligence,  in  the
estimation  oi a  well-known  portrait
painter.
In commenting 'en women he has
painted, he said :
"The plain woman, so-called, is to
ilie artist frequently a 'palntable' woman. She hai for iln.se who watch
her with the seeing glance a host of
surprises.   Sometimes ihe is radiant,
lu-r eyes sparkle, her face is Illuminated from within by the loul'i candle.
You get to the point e.f hesitation
when some '.ne lays. 'Isn't Miss So
and Se> plain?1 Veen know she is
in it. hul how ean you make the other
see  what  yin  see"'
"To me the face of George Eliol
has always been wonderfully Inter*
esting. 1 do met see how the term
'Ugly can be applied to it, so full is
iit of Intelligence. It is so alert and
| stimulating, though the outline is irregular.
"There Is nothing to me as a man
more dreadful than a woman who has
matured physically without developing mentally; there is nothing to me
as an artist less worthy of commemoration than the face of such a woman. But think of the horror of seeing that face by your side day by day
���that is worse than merely having
to paint it.
"I may go so far as to say that if
a woman wauls to be beautiful she
must cultivate her intellectual as well
as the physical attributes. Then and
then only will she achieve the desired
result. Today we have a distinct
type of beauty, indefinable as the
elements of which it is composed, for
who can describe the Soul, who can
put tlie Mind into words? That is
what you would have to do."

Lace is no more difficult to clean
than any other fabric if you know
how to do it. But, of course, to bc
successful as a lace cleaner you must
take the trouble to learn something
about the various methods of cleaning and drying.

blouses and frocks, can be washed
and dried and ironed just like any
other cotton fabric. It should be
carefully ironed, of course, so that
it will not be pulled out of shape.
There is little likelihood of stretching it; in fact, it shrinks a little. But
as it must be ironed when fairly
damp in order to come out fresh and
new looking, it is easily pulled out
uf shape in the ironing.
The plailings of net that abound
on all parts of woman's dress can
he put into shape in one of the little
plaiters which are simply manipulated.
The secret of washing lace successfully is to get most of the dirt and
dust and grime out of it with as little
rubbing ns possible.    First shake the
lace in the Open air and give il a bai
in  the  sunshine.    Sunshine,  I y  tl
way. and fresh air are fritllc'l of hue
just as dust and darkness are its troll
enemies.    Then,   after   sinning  ant
airing   it.   soak   il   in   lukewarm   I iap-
Mnl>.    For  this  suds dissolve  ��ha*
ing>  of Castile  or  other  white  loap
in  boiling waler, and  lu every gallon
of  water  add   two   tabiespoonfuls   ol
borax.

New Dancing Frocks
There are two sorts of frocks dan-
sante; afternoon models, and models
intended for evening wear. Sometimes the only difference between the
two seems to be in the length of
sleeve and in the foolwear and headgear worn with the costume; for a
hat usually accompanies the afternoon dancing frock; whereas, in the
evening, the hair is ornamented with
se.me sort of coiffure ornament. In
the afternoon, also, smart litlle buttoned hoots that may make brief appearance in the street accompany the
dainty frock, and in thc evening slippers arc the proper footwear for the
ballroom, Dancing boots for afternoon wear with frocks dansante are
the prettiest things Imaginable, High,
curved heels, trim lines and the thinnest of turned soles make them most
becoming to the foot, and the buttoned tops have a smart correctness,
giving the proper afternoon effect, yet
lieing made of such exquisitely soft
kid that the movement of the ankle
is not constricted in  the least.

Scarf and Muff Sets
An inexpensive set of muff and
stole can he fashioned at home by
any girl who can sew with a fair
degree of skill. One of the fur fabrics can be used, which imitate fur
closely but are very much cheaper, or
velvet can be used instead. Black
velvet or a dark seal brown is always
correct, but some other inconspicuous color can bc chosen if the set is
for wear with a special costume. One
bride had in her trousseau a set of
taupe-colored chiffon velvet lined with
a harmonizing shade of blue brocaded satin.
To make such a set is quite easy.
Make the scarf eighteen inches wide
and two and a half or three yards
long. Sew the lining to the velvet
neatly whipstitching it in position.
Gather the end together and finish
them with large silk tassels. Purchase a foundation for the muff���
these are to be found in any large
department store���and over this fit
the velvet smoothly. Line the muff
with the brocaded silk . The beauty
of the scarf and muff is enhanced if
they arc trimmed with bands of moleskin, skunk or fox, but this, of course,
doubles the expense, unless as often
happens one has good bits of old furs
than  can be utilized.

The Turnin' Kind
In Kildonan and St. Andrews it is
related that at the last election, one
of the voters required a good deal
nf "practical" persuasion. He threw
out a hint that he might support a
candidate who was opposed to his
(the voter's) well-known "politics."
The voter called on one of the chief
men and confessed that his change
or "turnin'," as he called it was almost complete.
"Well, boy," said the chief man,
"what will make your 'turnin" final?"
with the accent on the "al."
Arrangements were completed for
the turnin.' but imagine the consternation of the chief man when the voter reappeared lhe day before election
and said : "Roy, Jim, I'm afraid I'm
turnin' again."

A Shock
In a small country church, nol long
since, a little child was brought forward for baptism. The young minister, taking the little one in his arms,
spoke as follows :
"Beloved hearers, no one can foretell the future of this little child. He
may grow up to be a great astronomer, like Sir Isaac Newton, or a great
labor leader like John Rums; and it
is possible lie might become the Prime
Minister of England."
Turning to the mother, he inquired,
"What is the name of the child?
"Mary Ann," was the reply.

Good  Enough for Dad
"Madame, wc had to amputate.
Your husband will now require an
artificial limb. A good one will cost
several hundred dollars."
"It's simply a case of a wooden
leg, isn't it, doc?"
"Dad ain't used to much. I'll just
saw a leg from an old table we have
in  the  garret."

Tommy Wanted to Know
Tommy   was   having   a   quiet   talk
with his mother.   He wanted to know
why  Mr.   Jinks   married  Mrs.   Jinks.
His  mother  wasn't  able to  tell very
clearly.     Tommy   thought   a   while,
and  then  asked :
"Mother, why did you marry dad?"
"Tommy, I married your father because he  saved me from drowning,"
replied  his  mother.
"Is that why dad's always telling
me not to learn how to swim?" said
Johnny.

Young, Inexpert Fish
Tommy, new to the country, went
fishing in the creek with Lukr the
hired man. Tommy returned in the
late hours in true fisherman's styl.-,
empty-handed,  but  with  an   ey.ee
"It wasn't our fault," he said   '     r
had   some   bites,   and  got   .      ��  ii��h
right up into the  air, but they were
little  ones  and  didn't know  how  to
| hold on."
Solving the Marriage Problem
"The stenographer's leaving us to
get married, sir."
"That makes five we lost in the last
two years by the matrimony route,
doesn't it?"
"Yes, sir."
"Then hire a male stenographer this
time. When he gets married he'll be
darn glad to hang onto his job."

One Crpmide Canned
"They are always talkin' about the
wonders  of  electricity,"  said  Farmer
Corntossel,   "but   there's   one   of   its
greatest     achievements     they     don't
mention."
"To what do you refer?"
"The way it has killed off the fellers   who   made  jokes  about   people
who went to town an' blew out the

Preferred the Baby
It was a summer hotel and thc
baby,  being  warm  and  fretful,  cried.
"TutI Tut! We can't disturb our
neighbors this way," the fond father
said, taking the child in his arms.
"Let  me  sing him tei sleep."
He sang and straighway came a
knock at the door and these words.
"There's a sick lady next door, and,
if it's all the same to you, would you
mind letting the baby cry instead of
singing to it."

Not Proper for Ladies
A nervous matron was upbraiding
her negro maid and the servant remained silent. This exasperated the
mistress,  who   shouted :
"Mandy, why don't you say something.    Why do you keep quiet?"
" 'Cause, missy," replied Mandy,
meekly, "it takes two to make a fight,
an' it ain't propah fob ladies to fight."

Natural���Historically Correct
"No   adults   admitted,"   interposed
the stage-doog keeper as the frenzied
mother tried to break in on the children's   fancy  dress  ball."
"But I must go in. My little girl's
in there and she's forgotten part of
her costume. She has gone on as a
butterfly without her wings. I want
to put the wings on her."
"Can't help it, mum; my orders is
to let no adult pass. You'll have to
let your little girl go as a caterpillar."

In the Empire State
"Who is Governor of New York?"
Justice Emerson, of that State, asked a candidate for naturalization at
Watertown.
"Charles F. Murphy," was the unhesitating answer.

asked the justice.
"He is the one they put in after
Suiza- was laid off."
The aoplicant was admitted to citizenship. The Syracuse "Post-Standard"  informs  us.

COLLINGWOOD   PARLIAMENT
Industrial Disputes Bill Passes Third
Reading
Another very wet and windy night
made the attendance small. Two
new members were elected. Mr. J.
VV. Weart now sits for Nanaimo and
be added very materially to the
strength of the Liberal party. The
"Industrial  Disputes"  bill,  a  private
members bill, introduced by the member for Comox, passed its third reading after a lively discussion. The
member for the Islands seemed to
object to the bill in toto. Mr. J. W.
Weart gave the bill some eulogy and
some criticism, and afler some amendments, due to some extent to Mr.
Weart's lucid criticism the bill passed. The debate was altogether most
instructive and illuminating although
the  attendance  was  small.

wenl out.
"Well." lu- observed, when lit
reached his apartments, "I've an idea
there'll be a litlle fun when Dempster
liml- e>m Imw he's been pul upon."
Saying which, he let about the development of the plate freun Flagg's
camera.    It told its own story.
"P.ior girl," said Hi.Ibri.uk. as lu-
���malhed it "1 always knew there

I'm  I  wonder what it is?"
IU- had not long to wait. In a few
minutes, Aline, accompanied by Father Shannon, Holbrook's friend anil
confessor, arrived tn warn him thai,
sitting in her home, she had heard
her father and Dempster, after talking over the death of Flagg, decide
thai even if he had not committed
murder, bis approbation of the plate-
holders made him an accessory before the fact. They were coming to
arrest him, It was imperative ihat
she confess  her own guilt.
"Oh! 1 know all about that," said
Holbrook, impcrturbably. "I had a
line photograph of the scene, but I
had to smash it."
But Aline desired to tell more.
There was her marriage; shc must
confess that. Shc had thought it
genuine, but tbe man had written her
later to say it was false.
"Nothing remarkable," said Holbrook. "Nothing remarkable about
it at all. it might have happened to
any one." Aline was still talking,
still trying to convince him of thc
magnitude of her guilt, when her
father and Dempster arrived. Holbrook  was  arrested.
"So far," said Dempster, "I can't
charge you with anything except being an accessory before the fact, but it
isn't going to be many hours before
I  have  the  guilty  party  in jail."
There was more in his remark than

appeared. Aline had been seen on
her way into Flagg's office. From her
maid Dempster had learned that the
young woman had returned shortly
after the hour of Flagg's death, with
her skirt bedraggled. He had also
learned that there had been a telephone call from the Graham residence to Flagg's office. Inside of
twenty-four hours, in fact, he had
enough evidence to warrant him in
putting Aline through the "third degree."
Under the "third degree" Aline
melted. She contradicted herself.
Holbrook's attempts to aid her wcre
in vain.
"Miss Graham, I am of lhe opinion
that (here is sufficient evidence to
arrest you for the murder of Judson
Flagg," said Dempster, when the examination  was  concluded.
"Don't worry," said Holbrook,
winking at Gordon Graham; "they
can't make a case."
Once more, though, thc telephone
was to come to Aline's rescue. This
time it was a message from the Coroner's office. Elagg had not been \
murdered after all. He had died from
heart  disease.
"Now, what do you think of that?"
exclaimed Holbrook. He looked slyly at Dempster. "And I can't be an
accessory after the fact after all!"
But matters between him and Aline
were not straightened out yet. It
had developed that her former husband had fooled her about the false
marriage���that it had been perfectly
genuine���but that he had wanted to
get out of it and taken a lie as the
easiest way.
"The dirty dog!" said Holbrook.
"And  what  was  his  name?"
"Woolworth." said Father Shannon, as Aline gave him leave to speak.
James Woolworth."
"A newspaper man?" exclaimed
Holbrook.
"I believe so." Holbrook gave a
shout of delight.
"He's dead���dead as a salt mackeral.
I buried him myself, out by Manila!"
