SOUTH VANCOUVER, B.C., CANADA, SATURDAY, JANUARY 17,  1914
Price 5 cents
Dickie, Kerr or McArthur ?���That's the Question.   What Will the Women do?
How About the Silent City Vote ?   Will it Crush Proud Edward's Power?
Many Champions Enter the Civic
Lists���Every Man is Confident of
Success--There is Hard Fighting--Several
Knights are Already Unhorsed���The
Darkness at the Polling Booth
Settles Upon the Field
In spots the municipal insurrection
is taking on a tendency towards comic opera, but, nevertheless, the immense interest being taken in the
contest indicates that the ratepayers
-are beginning to awaken to their responsibilities.
Good men are in the running in all
the wards and the three candidates
for the recveship are each of a type
that the oldest and most conservative city would bc pleased to proclaim among her leading men.
"Honest Jim" Kerr, up to the time
<jf going to bat, declared himself as
beistg very hopeful as to the outcome.
There's a silent bunch of voters up
in the city which may play hob with
Jim's  calculations.
Mr. Thomas Dickie���and no one
-U'juld ever think of calling him
���"Te^m" or "Tommie," or leaving off
the "Mr."���declares that he is there
like the proverbial ton of brick. Others
who think so are W. C. McKim, Al.
Hamilton and a few hundred people
in Ward Four. There's a bunch of
incorporationists who w'ill do their
best to knock Mr. Dickie's chances
into a cocked hat. and there's a gang
over at Collingwood which fain would
see thc Dickie head on a pole with-
".;���  the castle wall.
"Old Mac"���anil a genial old campaigner like Mr. J. C. MeArlhur, J. P..
doesn't mind being called "Old Mac"
even to his face���is proving himself
I" be no nonentity in thc present running. Mac has the oldtimers lie-
hind him to a man. He has the whole
of Collingwoiid and a good part of
Cedar Cottage rooting for him. With
liim the personal equation counts for
much. He's a popular lighter is McArthur.    He will poll a heavy vote.
McArthur will come second in the
list. Vnu would be ill-advised to bet
your money that way, but Unit's how
the office sccr dopes it out. He will
come second if he doesn't top the list.
Kerr, Dickie and McArthur are
three worthy musketeers and the escutcheon of each has not a 9pot up-
'���oii it. That makes thc tight most
interesting. Dickie has a Manitoba
farmer combination behind him coupled with a big-property-owner element. He has Ward Four and a very
goo4   chance   to   monopolize   the   ex
treme westerly end of the municipality, Kerr is said to have thc church
people behind him. This is peculiar
because the other two candidates are
equally as much at home inside a
church. The three men are of equally abstemious habits.
Behind Kerr is Mr. W. A. Pound,
who, in the dim past, was reeve of
South Vancouver, and who is said to
have discovered South Vancouver.
Pound is a great organizer. He has
an organization which extends to
the far reaches of the district. Kerr
has the old council with him. He
has in addition certain achievements
with him which make meat for "Old
Mac" an<l  Mr. Dickie.
As regards the candidates for the
council, it would bc hard to pick a
more likely lot of men. Yes, and
even the volatile Gold is n.it any
worse than hc is painted. Edward
Gold has sinned, so they say. For
that matter all men, even he who sets
down these few comments, have sinned. Edward is too free in admitting the matter. That's all that's
wrmig with Edward. He carries his
sins right on his brow. If we all did
that, in Bobbie Burns or some other
poet has said, we'd have to wear hats
a mighty sight bigger even than the
chapeau which shelters tlle dome of
the  matchless  Bob  McBride.
Ail eyes arc centred on Ward Five,
where Geelel finds a formidable rival
in John Wesley Goostrey, who has
tlle backing "I every Wcslcyan in
that ward and the Moral Reform Lea-
gtte,  as   they   call   it.
It   will   be   interesting   to   see   just
how   they   accept   Mr.   Gold   in   Ward
Five,    One  thing is  sure and that  isi
that   Edward   Gold   will   get   British I
fair play.    He will be judged on pres-'
ent achievements.    It is unusual to
see a man of the wealth of Mr. Gold
jumping into a municipal affray.    No
one  can   doubt  but  that   his  motives
are  above   those  of  the  mere  office-
hunter.    But as  to  that, Ward  Five
will wisely judge.
In Cedar Cottage some of the spice
has been extracted from the situation
by thc withdrawal of John Dickinson.
"Fightin' Jack"���they've got into
the habit of calling him in the ward.

Last  Lap  in  Race  for
The  Municipal  Stakes
Candidates for Reeveship and Council Are Conducting Spirited
Campaign for Victory or Death at Saturday's Elections
Nomination Results Show Few Changes in the Field
Crowded and Lively Meeting
Endorses Mr. J. A. Kerr as Reeve

Candidate* Address the Audience
make similar arrangements. Hc did
not think that, considering the condition of the money markets, South
Vancouver had done so badly compared with other municipalities. He
mentioned that while South Vancouver had paid only 7 per cent on their
bonds, Burnaby had paid 9 per cent
and Point Grey even as high as 10
per cent. In issuing these bonds or
treasury certificates the council, said
Mr. Kerr, had only acted after consultation with their fiscal agents and
either financial authorities. He was
also, proud of the recent sale of one
million of South Vancouver bonds
at 91, as it tended to strengthen the
financial   credit   of   thc   municipality.
As to the Main Street paving contract, it was singular, said Mr. Kerr,
that it was only since the contract
was given to the Dominion Creosoting Company that thc system of paving had been knocked. "We need the
paving," said thc reeve, "in Main
Street and 95 per cent, of the people
on Main Street believe it requires
paving   without  unnecessary  delay."
/vfter dealing with other points in
the record of the 1913 council, Reeve
Kerr stated that he was in favor of
public utilities, particularly as regards an electric plant. If re-elected
he would seek to encourage local industries so as to provide employment
for men in South Vancouver independent of civic work which was
limited and never permanent. While
in favor of careful development, he
would advise the placing of a small
bylaw for sewerage work at the earliest convenient time.
With only standing room reserved,
:a large gathering at Kalenberg Hall,
S.iuth Vancouver, heard Reeve Kerr's
account of his stewardship and his
reply to his critics on the financial
conditions of the municipality. Sev-
��� ral candidates for the council, in-
luding Councillors Thomas and Miller, Messrs. E. Gold, W. Winram, E.
L. Armstrong, J. W. Goostree and
School Trustees Whelpton and Neelands were present and addressed the
gathering which was at all times good
humored if occasionally pretty lively
and animated.
Peeve Kerr, who was well received
by a large majority of the audience
gave a lengthy but clear exposition
<ef the financial administration of the
���municipality during 1913. In the
course of his reply to his critics, he
viuotcd largely from the annual report of thc municipality published recently.
Referring to retrenchment, Reeve
Kerr said he was in favor of such
economy as long as it was consistent
with thc necessary development of
South Vancouver. When the ratepayers, he said, had passed the money
bylaws they desired to see the money
spent in local improvements, and thc
Main Street paving was one of the
most necessary and urgent of these.
In regard to the issue of South
Vancouver bonds and treasury certificates, Mr. Kerr explained that the
financial conditions prevailing necessitated thc arrangements they had
made with the Bank of Montreal.
Vancouver, Point Grey and other
municipalities   had   been   obliged    to
Others even have other appellations
for him. Maybe he has seen the
hand-writing on thc wall. Who
knows? John Third is said to have
seen it. John Third is something
like King Mcnelik, of Abyssinia.
John Third has been reported dead
politically every year for the past de-
cade. lint hc refuses lo believe such
reports. However, this year sees
liim out of the fight. He will doubtless make a second coming. In the
meantime eene Winram is said to have
John's  goat,
That valiant old war-horse, Councillor Thomas, wlm was chief burgher
elf Boston at the time the British
withdrew from the Xew England
States, appears in the limelight this
week to ureal advantage, lie claims
that he lives on good hot political
mix-ups���that the smell of blood
makes him young. Rob Roy Macgregor Mackintosh is camping on his
trail, and the old champion will have
to toss his mane and do a whole lot
of tcarin' and suortin' and rearin' to
get by.
Councillor Millar is a very busy
man. "Who will come and fight with
me?" he challenges from his stronghold on Sixty-second Avenue. Rowlings will be his opponent and Rowlings will have to figure ou overcoming a tough line-up of ex-Manitoba farmer coupled with a quantity
of  Donald  Burgess.
Graham and Barclay and Rutledge
are candidates three who stand around
the political cauldron. "When shall
wc three meet again, in thunder,
lightin', or in rain?" they chant. They
will never meet again on the bonnie,
bonnic banks of the N'orth Arm.
There will he at least one terrible
political death iu Collingwood after
Saturday. And we ain't mentionin'
n* names.
Winram, these days, is just too
chic for anything. Hc knows he's
going to win over Armstrong. The
sheet metal workers, however, promise to build a tin roof over the tall
one, starting Saturday morning.
Correspondence
I To  the  Editor  of  the  "Chinook":
Sir,���Believing   that   I   have   been
misunderstood in regard to my stand
in   iho   liquor   question   I   wish   to
'make   the  lollowing  statements:
Inasmuch   as   the   licence   of     the
Gladstone   Inn   cannot   be   cancelled
i according to law without a specific
charge,  or   failing  this  the  purchase
I of  the  property,  if  elected  as  reeve,
jand if said charge is brought before
me. I will immediately take steps to
have the licence cancelled without
compensation, or iu the event of no
such charge before the present time
limit on said licence expires, I will
submit a plebiscite to the ratepayers
asking for an expression of opinion
on the question of eliminating this
licence from the municipality. If the
plebiscite carries, I will proceed to
negotiate for the purchase of said
property, thus compensating the owner for his vested interests, and convert the property to puhlic use as a
hospital or nurses' home.
J. C. McARTHUR,
Candidate for Reeve.
The  Government Audit
Though the Hon. Dr. Young, pre>-
vincial secretary, stated in a letter under date of January 5, that a copy
of the Crehan report of the $20,000
civic invelligation was being sent to
the municipality, no such document
has as yet been received, as far as
������an be learned. Certain candidates
claim they have thus been cheated
out of hot election matter.
In conclusion Reeve Kerr declared that it had always been his ambition, while in the council, to lower
the cost of living in South Vancouver. But he would exhort the electors to join in loyally supporting the
council, whomever tlie council for
1914 may bc.
Mr. Edward Gold, candidate for
Ward Five, during the course of thc
evening, gave a short but animated
speech in criticising the reeve's financial management of the municipality. He particularly condemned, in no
unstinted terms, thc granting of the
Main Street paving contract without
calling for tenders.
Referring to certain personal rumors circulating in South Vancouver
concerning him, Mr. Gold gave an
emphatic denial to every one of them
and offered $5,000 to anyone who
could prove certain statements made
concerning him. .
Subjects of Debate
Some of the subjects of the contests arranged under the auspices of
the Vancouver Debating League for
the 1914 season are as follows : On
January 22 at M.junt Pleasant Presbyterian Church, the resolution will be
"that Vancouver should adopt the
commission form of government," tlle
Mount Pleasant taking thc affirmative and Chalmers Presbyterian
Church the negative; on January 24
at the First Congregational Church
thc resolution will be "that government ownership of railways is preferable to private ownership." Collingwood Parliament taking thc affirmative and tlle First Church the
negative.
This week the candidates for tlle
reeveship and council of South Vancouver began the last lap in the race
for the municipal stakes. As the election day draws nearer the fight has
become more strenuous, meetings
have been thronged and the supporters of the different candidates have
been moving heaven and earth to
capture recruits for their voting battalions on Saturday.
Monday last being nomination day,
the candidates appeared early on the
scene surrounded by their enthusiastic supporters. All day the municipal hall was crowded with interested
ratepayers or residents from all parts
of the municipality, and diverse opinions were freely expressed as to the
ultimate fate of the contestants for
civic honors.
Reeve Kerr, Mr. Thomas Dickie,
and Mr. J. C. McArthur. candidates
for the reeveship of the municipality
disolved all possible doubts as to remaining in the field by duly signing
their nomination papers. In the case
nf Mr. McArthur's nomination, an
oversight was put right at the eleventh
hour. It appears that the candidate's
nomination paper was presented without his address being properly given
and on being informed by Reeve
Kerr, Mr. McArthur rectified the
omission and thus prevented his disqualification.
There were few changes in the list
of  candidates  published  as  probable
��� runners  in  last week's  "Chinook."
In Ward Seven. Mr. William John
Allen, of 394 Ferris Road, is a new
candidate, while Mr. J. C. Gibson
has dropped out of the contest. Mr
Allen, wlio is a well-known broker,
will therefore be Mr. C. W. Twiddy's
only opponent in this ward.
In Ward Five, Mr. I". Way lias retired from the field, leaving Mr. Edward Gold to fight Mr. John Wesley
Goostrey for premier place. The
contest here promises to be a keen
and close one, the supporters of both
candidates being equally confident of
a successful issiu.
Until the last moment there was
considerable uncertainty as to whether
Mr. John Dickinson would run or
i not for Ward Two. but nomination
'day passed without his name appearing aS a candidate. In this ward,
therefore, Messrs. William Brown
and George A Stevens remain the
only   competitors.
Five former members of the old
council,  Councillors  Stuart  Campbell.
Wilbers, Humphries, Third and Dickinson are not seeking re-election,
leaving Reeve Kerr and Councillors
G. W. Thomas and J. D. Miller the
only representatives of thc 1913
council.
For thc school board handicap there
are now four candidates, Messrs.
Whelpton, Xeclands, F. Way and J.
C. Hudson. The last named gentleman entered the arena as a school
trustee late in the day. Mr. Hudson, who resides at 155 Eighteenth
Avenue West, South Vancouver, is a
builder and contractor.
At the close of the business of
nomination, a meeting was held in
the council chamber when the three
candidates for the reeveship, Messrs.
Kerr, Dickie and McArthur, as well
as the candidates for the different
wards addressed lhe gathering. The
speeches were confined to ten minutes
duration and embodied chiefly assurances on the part of the candidates
as to the zealous service they purposed rendering the municipality if
elected.
Reeve Keir has been holding a
number of meetings throughout South
Vancouver which have been well attended and at which he has given a
closely reasoned account of his stewardship, as well as his platform for
tlle   current  year  if  re-elected.
Mr.  J.  C.  McArthur  has  held several   meetings   during   the   past   week
and   has   received  generous     support
from  a  large  number  of  electors   in
various parts of the municipality.   He
has announced meetings to take place
in his support as Reeve of South Vancouver at Kalenberg Hall  on Thursday   night,   at   McBride   School   and
at Tecumseh School on Friday night
Mr. McArthur's city committee rooms
are at 434 Richards Street, Vancouver.
Mr. Thomas Dickie, the other candidate for the  reeveship,    has    been
1 particularly  active   during    the    last
week  in  his  campaign.    On   Monday
! he addressed a large gathering in the
! Carleton    Hall,    East    Collingwood,
! severely   criticising   thc   Main   Street
paving contract.    The meeting which
was   somewhat   lively,   was   also   addressed  by  Messrs.   W.   B.     Russell,
Rutledge, W.  Barcb- and    R.    Mc-
\ Bride.     Mr.   Dickie   has     announced
| meetings  in  his  support  as  reeve  to
be held Thursday evening in McBride
I School,  and  on   Friday    evening    in
Marfew   Hall,   Cedar   Cottage.

Besides the usual attractions, the
management of Cedar Cottage Theatre have arranged to give the South
Vancouver Municipal election returns
on the screen as soon as they arrive
on  Saturday  night.
In the three-cornered fight for thc
recveship of South Vancouver, which
will come to an end Friday night,
none "f the supporters of the three
candidates are more enthusiastic than
those of Reeve J. A. Kerr and none
are working harder for the success
of their man next Saturday. Under
the direction of Campaign Manager
F. E. Elliott, a large central committee and a smaller executive committee have in hand the reeve's campaign, and if enthusiasm and work
count for anything, the present, chief
magistrate will be returned with a
larger  majority  than  ever before.
Down town headquarters have been
opened at 411 Pender Street West
and through the various wards the
sub committees have rooms where
the supporters of the Reeve gather
and exchange notes. Four of the
candidates   for  the  council  and  two
for school trustee, have signified
their intention of supporting Reeve
Kerr, and are found on his ticket as
shown  above.

In Ward Five, the members of the
Moral Reform Association, held an
enthusiastic, meeting for organization
Monday, in support of Mr. J. W.
Goostrey. They promise a hard fight
against Mr. Gold. Mr. W. J. Allen
seems to have pretty clear sailing
in Ward Seven, but there arc close
fights in Wards Three and One,
where Messrs. Mcintosh and Graham, are opposing Conncillor Thomas
and   Mr.   Rutledge,  respectively. SATURDAY,   JANUARY   17,  1914

The civic elections are now a thing
Iof the past in Vancouver and it is
witli extreme regret we note the ab-
���enee of any able, men representing
the labor interests. Why tliis ihould
in- ii haul t.e explain.
The great bulk .if tbe working

they  are  tiercel]  tn  lest
While the trades uni'eiis arc Strong

nn- of the finest labor leaders, men
who have been through the mill, yel
there   is   a   want   nf   cohesion   when
ii comei t'e united action in the municipal or political  field.
One needs eenly attend a meeting
of  the  Trades  Council  tei  ascertain
fnr himself  that   the  material  is   here
right now for giving the workers direct representation on   the   governing bodies.
But  the  necessary "-park"  t'i put
I life  into  a   cement    along    these |
lines ii still awaiting.
While not wishing tej criticise the
new laln-.r Representation Committee
jiiat formed, still we feci that the organization of that body could have
been hurried along in order to enable the necessary candidates being
brought oul at the past elections.
New Westminster has shown whal
it can dn in the waj of organization
and why shouhl Vancouver be a drag
on the wheel?
The Royal City workers not con-
| tent with having one alderman on the
| city council, have put forward other
I two nominees, anil it seems altogether likely they will both be elected,
Then there is the school hoard to
consider. What more desirable body
cnuld the workers wish to have representatives    on?    Their    children

Bitulithic approaches more closely than any other the

Its notable durability makes it more economical than any

Tlie thoroughfares paved with bitulithic are an impressive

Bitulithic has been adopted in over two hundred cities in
the United States and fifteen cities in Canada.

Blew hansel in on  Robin."
Weel freens, if Kabbie had had thc
misfortune tae hae been born roon
aboot say Vancuuver or Burnaby or
maybe the incorporated city o' Port
Moody, I'm ji-i thinkin' that insteed
o' rcferrin' tae the blast o' Janwar
wind he wml hae struck off a naughty-
cal stave insteed.
Hooever it's an ill wind that blawi
naebody guid an' choosin' atween the
win' that blew on Scotia's bard an'
the weather we're haen here rich!
in ie e, 1 maun say I caither prefer the
water���the high cost.o' livin' or the
money stringency hasna had ony ill
effecks on it.
I wunner hoo mony o' my readers
hae crossed the North Brig in Edinburgh on a windy da I wis in the
habit mysel o' crossin' aboot fower
times daily���an' lime we used tae enjoy oorsels on a windy day. I'm ce.ni-
plainin' o' a sare airm thc noo, an' the
wife says it's jist a touch o' roomatics,
but 1 pit it doon mysel tae the stren-
yis time 1 aye had when crossin' thc
Brig tae  prevent  my kep blawin' alf.
It's a long time noo sin I saw a man
chasin' his hat mi the street. Of
course it wudna gaun very faur iu
they pains, it wud sune get stuck in
the muck. Still 1 think if there's onything taks a man doon a peg or twa
it's tae hae his hat blawn aff an' tae
hae tac scamper efter it wi' a' the
weirld lookin' on.
Noo this pits us in mind that it's
cnniin' near the time again when a'
thc big bugs gether roe en a tabic tae
dae honor tac Rabble Burns.
While I dinna want tae appear in
thc role o' a cynic, still I've often
theicht that an awfu lot o' the folk
takin' pairt in they celebrashuns wcre
marc bent on boostin' their ain par-
teecular surname than thc homered
an' revered name o' Ranoic  Burns.
For the time bein'. that nicht, the
britherhood O1 man is in the air���or
maybe in the beitllc���but as sune as
I the spree's owre they begkl argyin'
the pint owre dreadnoughts, twa-
power or sixty per cent,  standards.
II often appears tae nn- as mare o'
a mockery than onything else.    Poll-
iteeshuns an parsons, millyinaire soap
hilers or makers ee' war Implements
gether roon a table tac dae honor tae
a man that wud hae been the lirst tae
condemn  them an'  their  methods.
We're nae nearer the poet's ideal
o' the britherhood o' man than we
were a hunner years ago.
Andry Carnegy in his wisdom established what he termed a peace
pailacc at the Hague. Jist tae show
they were sincere in their profes-
shuns, the "powers" doubled their
war estimates thc followin' year an'
they've went up by leaps an' bounds
ever since.
N'oo, it wudna hae been hauf bad if
they  had  kept  their  warlike ambee
shun! tae their ain side o' thc wattcr.
But rt wis an ill-staurred day for B.C.
when nor ain beloved Dicky McBride made his maiden trip across
thc herrin' pond efter hc had got the
haundle tae his name.
Yae wud hae thocht that a man
that wis puttin' the britherhood o'
man intae actual practice by haen a
blend ee' Chineymen an' whites in his
kitchen an' his backyaird wud hae
been the last tac fa' in wi' their tactics ��� >' attemptin1 tae annihilate wan
anither.
"The deities that  I  adore,
"Are   seecial peace an' plenty;
I'm   better   pleased   to   make   one
more,
Than he tin   death o' twenty."
I wunner if Dick ever read they
lines. I'm quite share if he had he
wudna hae felt sac ashamed o' himsel as he said he did when hc returned   frae  his  last   trip.
We're haen social peace an' plenty owre mi Vancoover Island the
noo. arc we no'? I wunner if he telt
the folks in the auld country aboot
the ideal life 60 per cent, o' tin pop-
ulashon are haen the noo?
But that's jidgin' the prime minister too harshly. Dicky's mind's
moulded fen- bigger an' broader
thing- than botherin' aboot sic or-
dinary, common, work-a-day mortals
as coal miners. A miner wud be a
gey funny loon in a kitchen washiu'
greasy dishes or attemptin' tae raise
sweet  peas in  the gairden.
But the maist curious thing about
it is. what dis Dicky want they dreadnoughts  for?
Maybe he had an idea he wud be
able tac use wan as a private yacht
tae tak in the openin' o' thc Panama
Canaul or inspect the Japanese canneries up  the  coast.
Hooever. whatever wey he likes
tae tak it. I'm thinkin' the premier
an' iiis rear-admiral, the Hon. W.J.B..
hae anither guess comin' when they
think thc ordinary common workin'
folk o' B.C. are gaun tae enthuse
owre the dreadnought bizness.
There's wan condecshun���an' wan
only���on which the workers o' B.C.
wud willingly gie Dicky his three
battleships, in fact I believe they
wud gie him a dizen if necessary.
If he wud line them up along the
bores   o'   B C.   an'   prevent   another
;olitary   Chink.   Jap   or   Hindu   frae
enteriii'   the   province,     the     workin'
folk wud he wi' him as wan man.
Hooever,  there's  nae  fear but  that
Rabble's memory '11 be duly honored
by   every   man   who   has   sniffed   the
caller air o' auld Scotland.
"Let kings an'  courtiers  rise  an'  fa',
This world  has  mony  turns.
But brighter beams aboon them a',
The star o' Rabbie Burns."

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?

this association is that good government depends upon the active interest of the greatest number of the

COUNCILLOR    J.    D.    MILLAR
STANDS   FOR   BUSINESS
GOVERNMENT  AND
MORAL REFORM
Is Well Known and Highly Respected Resident cf South Vancouver
Councillor J. D. Millar is one of
those men who, when he takes a
stand, i.s as strong as the Rock of
Gibraltar.
Maybe this is the reason why the
people of Ward Six wish to see
Councillor Millar returned to the
Municipal Hall for a second term.
Councillor Millar is one of thc men
who owned property in South Vancouver at a time when the district
was largely bush. He has at all
times worked hard for the development of the municipality and has
had thc satisfaction of seeing South
Vancouver come forward to a first
place among the municipalities of
Western Canada. He has been here
seven years.
Councilleir Millar stands for a business government. He has been in
business for more than a score of
years, realizes the value of a dollar,
and consequently wants to see the
people's money spent to the best possible advantage.
Councillor Millar is a thoroughbred Canadian, coming to the coast
a great number of years ago from
Montreal. He stands for moral reform, and is tlie type of man who can
gracefully suppeirt such a policy. His
private life has been free from any
besmirchment and a vote for Councillor Millar is a vote for raising the
status   of   municipal   politics.       Adv.

SIX   REASONS
WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF
CREOSOTED WOOD
BLOCK PAVEMENTS
ITS DURABILITY���Does nol crumble or pulverize under the densest traffic; second only to granite
blocks.
ITS EASE OF REPAIR���NU difficulty being experienced in removing and replacing the blocks; no
expensive plant or skilled workmen required,
ITS SANITARY QUALITIES���Creosote being a
highly antiseptic and waterproofing material instantly destroys all germs, prevents the absorption of
street filth and consequent decay.
ITS NOISELESSNESS���'I'lie rat lie and bang of
vehicles passing over it< smooth surface absorbed
and muffled till lhe quiet of the dirt road is obtained.
ITS DUSTLESSNESS���Does not pulverize; the
heaviest traffic only pounding down the wood fibres
to offer the greater resistance.
ITS CLEANLINESS���Having a smooth surface and
being waterproof it does not differ in this respect
from asphalt.
We manufacture blocks of the highest possible
standard, the very best materials only being used and
in the  DOMINION  WOOD  BLOCKS we believe
we produce an article that has no equal.

THE COMING LIBERAL CONTENTION
-piIF. Liberal convention to be held at Victoria on
February 25th promises to be of the first im-
j. ltance to the future political fortunes of British
Columbia. It will be thoroughly representative of the
various districts of the province. There will be probably twenty-five delegates from Richmond constituency, including seven from South Vancouver. These
comprise men closely identified with the principles
and aspirations of the Liberal party in British Columbia, and intimate with the conditions prevailing
in their particular section of the province.
Thorough criticism and exposure of the present
government's mismanagement of provincial affairs
will rightly engross a considerable part of the proceedings. Organization and other matters of business
will also receive their legitimate attention. But it
may be hoped that the conference will not close without adopting a platform that will command the united
support of Liberals while arresting the sympathetic
consideration of those whose party allegiance is not
yet clearly defined.
A constructive Liberal policy is what the province
needs at the present time. Not only has criticism been
so searching, but the evidences of the government's
sins of commission and omission have been so palpable that the people of this province are pretty well
conversant with the decadent record of the present
regime at Victoria. What they want to know now
are the measures the Liberal party purpose to adopt
if placed in power.
Various policies have been tentatively advanced as
a platform for tlie Liberal party in British Columbia.
Some of these, such as, lands for settlers and not
speculators; a white British Columbia; workmen's
compensation without litigation expenses; timber for
actual users only, and public protection in respect to
coal, are all worthy of a place in a definite programme
or platform.
There are two measures, however, which appear to
us to be of very pressing importance to South Vancouver in particular and to Greater Vancouver in general. One is fair and adequate representation according to the population of a district. This should include personal registration and a regular periodical
system of redistribution. With a population of about
35,000 South Vancouver is now practically unrepresented, as the present member for Richmond constituency has too large and scattered a district to give
adequate attention to the requirements of South Vancouver. The lack of such representation bas long
been, a source of complaint in this municipality.
The other measure suggested is an amendment of
the provincial act by which neighboring municipalitie-
or civic bodies may amalgamate without governmental
consent. If Vancouver and South Vancouver mutually agree to such amalgamation, why should a political government at Victoria prevent or hinder thi
purely local ambition? It really seems as if the government at Victoria were fearful and jealous of the
growing power of Greater Vancouver. With South
Vancouver, llurnaby, Point Grey and Vancouver
forming a still Greater Vancouver, its population,
wealth and power would perhaps overshadow the
political prestige of the government at Victoria. Probably the government is afraid that in provincial influence the centre of'gravity would bc shifted from
Victoria to Vancouver.
It is understood that a similar policy is to be followed with regard to municipal work in South Vancouver, local men receiving the preference. That
course is now more necessary than ever, and as the
needs are greater and the opportunities of work fewer in South Vancouver than in the city, it should be
strictly enforced.
It is stated that a number of unemployed men from
the city have sought work in South Vancouver, but
whether any have been engaged is not at present
known. While it may appear a hard and somewhat
harsh measure to turn down men living in tbe city
but otherwise competent and deserving of work, it is
only just to residents and ratepayers of the municipality that they should he given the preference.
Whether the city's example of visiting the homes
or addresses given by employees in South Vancouver
should be followed is open to question. It seems.
anyhow, a very inquisitoral procedure. Possibly such
precautions are not as necessary in Smith Vancouver
a- in the city. At any rate, there are sufficient unemployed ratepayers of South Vancouver seeking work
whose names and addresses can easily be verified
without resort to the homes of the applicants.
T
CREDIT AND PRESTIGE
HAT the issue of $1,000,000 South Vancouver
five per cent bonds which were underwritten
at 91 last week was received on the London market
on favorable terms is good news for the municipality.
Whether the present reeve and those councillors seeking re-election are returned or nol, cannot affect the
result of the municipality's renewed prestige in financial circles.   That alone is of supreme moment.
It may be pointed out, moreover, to the pessimists
wdio endeavor to depreciate the sale of this million's
worth of bonds because the Bank of Montreal holds
an option on them that the outcome will, nevertheless,
be of the most beneficial kind to South Vancouver.
In the first place, whether the Bank of Montreal had
an option on the amount or not, the satisfactory sale
of the bonds will maintain or increase the municipality's credit with the bank. Without that credit this
year's council would be in a bad way. In the second
place, the favorable reception of the bonds on the
London market will appreciably tend to enhance the
financial credit and prestige of South Vancouver both
on this continent and abroad.
It is to be hoped that the new council will not contain any croakers or pessimists of the kind so prejudicial to civic prestige as well as development. They
are on a par with the false economists. Retrenchment in certain directions is undoubtedly a present
necessity; but the holding up of necessary work and
development, such as the paving of Main Street would
prove a disastrous setback to South Vancouver's progress.
The credit of a municipality is not always to be
measured, any more than that of an individual, by
the balance at the bank. J. Pierpont Morgan once
stated that he had often refused credit to men with
large balances at banks, and given credit to persom
with no such bank balance because of the greater confidence he had in the personal characters of the latter
applicants. What character is to a man, prestige is to a
municipality.
ment or civic office would seek out more diligently
members of the farming, medical, mercantile and
other trades or professions which are not so well
represented as they should be.
THE SCHOOL BOARD
i  OUTH  VANCOUVER has the finest system of
' schools of any city or municipality in liritish
Columbia. This i> a broad statement; it's true nevertheless.
Seeuth Vancouver should take a keener interest in
the administering of these schools. It might be well
if interest in the affairs relating particularly to the
municipal council were shaded down a trifle and a
little more ginger injected into the question of school
board affairs.
It would not be desirable to elect a man to South
Vancouver's school board who could not be held up
as a fair example in character for the two or three
thousand boys attending local schools.
W'e require progressive, broad-minded, reliable men
to conduct our school affairs. We have no room on
the board for trouble-makers, crabs and pessimists.
South Vancouver should not have upon her school
board a man whose disposition sours with the success
of his neighbors.
< li thc men who arc in the running, the ratepayers
wili likely think most kindly of Messrs. Whelpton.
Neelands and Hudson, three first class citizens.
MR. 11'. J. ALLEN TO TUP. FORE
IT has been the policy of the "Chinook" to remain
neutral in all civic contests. Thc appearance,
however, 'of a new personality in the present campaign,
demands that we depart from the usual custom to a
certain degree.
Mr. W. J. Allen is the youngest candidate in the
field for the Municipal Council. He is a gentleman
who has already distinguished himself in the business
arena. He has the training, the personality, the ambition and the character to make for South Vancouver
a worthy servant on the council board.
Mr. Allen is a candidate in Ward Seven, a district
the development of which has at all times received
his valuable aid. Mr. Allen has not sought municipal
honors; they have been thrust upon him.
Ward Seven has been represented by Mr. C. Stuart
Campbell, who retires this year. Mr. Campbell has
left a lasting impression upon the municipality during
his years of service. Mr. Allen will be a worthy successor to Mr. Campbell and will doubtless receive the
undivided support of the best people on that sunny
slope which overlooks the Fraser.

PREFERENCE FOR LOCAL WORKERS
URING the past week a number of South Vancouver residents who have been employed in
different departments of work by the City 0f Vancouver have been either discharged or laid off. Prior
to their discharge the homes of the employees in South
Vancouver have been visited and enquiries made as
to length of time employed in the city and information
sought as to other domestic matters. In most, if not
all of the cases referred to, the men were married and
some of them had been employed for several months
on city work. When the men were laid off they were
told that such action was in pursuance of the policy
of giving men living in the city preference over those
residing over the boundary line.
As matters stand, residents of South Vancouver
cannot very well complain of the city's action in this
respect. Such discrimination, it is said by city officials,
would not have been made under ordinary circumstances, the unusual number of unemployed men in
Vancouver rendering the step necessary.
MORE DIVERSITY OF OUTLOOK
HE preponderance of lawyers in the Dominion
and provincial houses of parliament is not altogether an unmixed blessing. Some of the ablest antl
most disinterested leaders of both parties are lawyers.
By their legal training and forensic gifts they are peculiarly qualified for taking part in the drafting of
bills and the consideration of many of the public
problems that parliaments have to face. But even
lawyers have their limitations, and they sometimes
suffer from the defects of their qualities. Some of
them are too prone to consider public matters from
their strictly legal and narrow standpoint alone. That
is not to say that the judicial discussion of public
matters is not a proper one, but that there are many
puhlic questions which could be more competently
settled by farmers, doctors, merchants and other members of profession's or trades which are not so adequately represented in parliaments as are lawyers.
Canada being so essentially an agricultural country it is regrettable that there are not more practical
farmers in both the Provincial and Dominion assemblies. While the minister of agriculture may be a
fully qualified man in dealing with the administration
of his office, he is more or less restricted in his outlook on farming matters hy considerations of party and
expediency. It is not enough that hc should issue
agricultural reports and advise farmers from time to
time to time to grow beets or rear poultry. There
should be sufficient members of parliament with adequate farming experience to exert their proper weight
in agricultural legislation.
Other professions or tradesmen could be named
which are not too well represented in parliament.
There are, for instance, measures affecting the public
health which doctors are probably better qualified
than any other class of men to discuss with the knowledge of science and personal experience which should
be brought to bear upon them. On such matters as
the adulteration of food and drink, sanitation, the
regulation of the sale of drugs and kindred matters,
the physician who is a member of parliament is able
to speak with more intimate knowledge and force than
the farmer or even the lawyer.
It might be well, therefore, if the people who take i
upon themselves to nominate candidates for parlia
TIIF. DEFEATED candidates on Saturday night
will probably console themselves with the reflection
that they have each gained a "moral victory."

THERE IS A MAX IX Vancouver who believe- iu
the dictum of the lawyer in "L'ncle Tom's Cabin" that
if you want justice you must be your own judge and
executioner. Asked, when charged with attempting
to shoot a civic clerk in the city hall, "What if you
don't get justice?" he replied "Then I'll do what I
think is right." He would not say what that would
be. but evidently he believes in the famous saying,
"The law is an ass."

WHEN THE MEMBERS of a certain municipal
council in the Old Country were in a dileiuna as to
how to pave their streets with wooden blocks, the late

wouldn't do at all; they would rather that Main Street
was paved with good intentions.

MUCH WAS SAID AT the gathering of the clans
in the council chamber on nomination day about muni
cipal experience. Reeve Kerr said he had the experience ; candidate for reeve Dickie said he did ne '
approve of such experience, while reeve-may-be McArthur announced that he had still better experience.
They will all doubtless find by Saturday night that experience tells one way or the other.

NOTES OF INTEREST TO THE
LADY OF THE HOUSE
A Swedish Woman's Ideas
Ellen Key's biography, written in
Swedish ley Louise Nystrom-Mamil-
i m. In- been translated into English
by Anna I''. II. Pries, anel published,
with an introduction liy II. Ellis, by
Putnam's  Sons,      rhe    author    lias
kneewn    Ellen   Key   since   Iter   youth,
anil l- herself the wilt oi the founder <ef  tin-    hospital    in    Stockholm
where  tin-   Swedish   novelist  tauglu |
anil   lectured   fe>r   nieire   than   twenty
years.
This biography wai written eight
year- ago, and a supplemental chapter  has  been  added   reviewing  briefly
the    novelist-reformers    mbiequenl
literary activities and personal car-
eer. The book is a record of events,
without attempts to estimate Ellen
Key'.s work or t'i promote her cher-
Ished  doctrines  and  opinions.
Intelligent and advanced sociologists in Europe are looking to this
woman of 64 t'i reconcile the conflicting currents of sentiment and
phrases of emotion evolved in the
large feminist movement, variously
expressed in different European
countries.
Her teaching is. in effect, a compromise between the insistent feminist demand for rights and privileges
hitherto regarded as masculine, and
the home-and-mother retort that in
competing with men, woman degrades herself and injures the race.
Woman is the mother, says Ellen
Key; the future of the race is in her
hands; she is also a human being,
with personal rights that must be regarded.
Therefore, it is urged, woman needs
complete freedom for development
and power to exercise all human
rights���not in order to imitate man
or to do any work which he may be
better fitted to do, but to enable her
to dee her own work, to follow her
natural impulses and tei exercise
broadly the function of motherhood,
than which no human attribute is
more important.
Throughout   this   biographical   volume   this   principle   of   independence
through   mutual   agreement     is     reflected  and   enforced   strongly.

Birth Mcnth Stones
For January the proper gem is
garnet. One of its attributes was
supposed to be that it brought sleep
to those subject tei insomnia; riches,
honor, great wisdom, constancy and
fidelity in every engagement���surely
a  very  "lucky"  stone.
For February is the amethyst.
Some of the light, -le varieties come
from Brazil, while others that are
livid with purple light come from
Ceylon and India. The ancient Romans believed that he or she who
drank wine from a cup made from
this gem could not become intoxicated.
For March, the blorfdstone is the'
symbol of wisdom and courage, and
it produces firmness in affection. It
is a dark gcen quartz with small red
spots of jasper diffused through it,
is opaque, and usually cut with a
rounded top and with a Hat back. It is
mined  in  India.
April's birth stone is the diamond,
supposed to keep its wearer .from
wrong-doing and  unavailing remorse.
For May. the accepted gem is the
emerald. The best speciments arc
mined at Muso, Columbia, South America. It is believed to be a strength-
ener of the eye.
For June is the pear, the queen eel
all gems. The olden Chinese us <
them as medicine for diseases of lh
blood. Cleopatra, in order tee shovt
her contempt for money, anil to oul
shine orders in her lavish wasteful
nes- in those days of oriental ipleiT-
dor, dissolved and swallowed a magnificent   large   pearl.
For July is the glowir ruby or
reel sapphire. It denotes love, or a
loving disposition. An old belief was
that this gem caused one to discover
the presence of poisons, warned tbe
wearer of impending danger by darkening in color, and when the evil
presence had passed resumed its
bright  red  color.
For August is the sardonyx. The
person wearing this gem will, it is
said, overcome all contentions, It
insures freedom from evil passions.
ity, conjugal felicity, is a cure for
epilepsy and causes strife and melancholy to depart.
For September is tlle ever-popular
sapphire. It was supposed to have
many virtues. It extinguishes tires,
corrects bad manners of thc wearers,
insures freedom from evid passions,
and sadness of the mind.
For October is the wondrous opal.
This beautiful gem, when extracted
from thc damp earth, is quite soft
and destitute of life, but the air and
sun gives it various degrees of color
anil beauty.    Emblem of hope.
For November the stone is topaz,
found in the Ural Mountains, Brazil,
Mexico, and other countries. It is
emblematic of friends and true love.
For December is thc heavenly blue
turquoise, It is a cheerer of a depressed soul, and insures prosperity
in  love affairs.
Hat Positions
Hats have threatened to balance
atop the head for many seasons. That
is all that has come of it till now.
A new shape with a brim dashingly
turned up at one side is having popularity with ultra smart folk. This
shape perches on top of the modish
coiffure and ofter cocked jauntily on
one side. The higher side of the
brim turns back at an audacious angle that is continued by the high
aigrette or paradise ornaments. The
distance from the chin to the top of
one of these ornaments is unbelievable even in head gear. None of
these ultra and rather bizarre fashions
has yet been popularized. That is
always simply a matter of time. An
attactive fashion always become popular when it takes on conservative
lines and colors. In the process, unfortunately, it also becomes vulgarized until every line, proportion, and
color out of harmony makes of it a
sorry  caricature.
te       *       *
Fancy Baskets
A departure from the simple willow, or wooden basket, with one or
more partitions, so that knives, spoons
and forks may be kept in an orderly
fashion, if the basket painted white
and enameled, its beauty being further enhanced by touches of gilt and
by the handles of wonderfully polished brass. Others are painted in the
soft French gray, which is today so
popular, with, perhaps, a touch of
Prussian blue and white make an-
decoration in emerald green or white,
other combination. Still others have
color  schemes  in  oriental  effects.

with the wants of the people, and have all matters of Municipal

MEN OF THE MOMENT IN SOUTH VANCOUVER
Reeve J. A. Kerr Outlines His Policy
for South Vancouver
I have served the Municipality aa Reeve- f.er the past two years,
and I am sure that all will agree they have beetl the most strenuous
years, possibly, in the history of eetir Municipality. My peelicy has
always been a progressive one. 1 believe that South Vancouver should
advance. Wc must neit stand still nor rest, as this would mean going
backward; but progress mirt be tempered wilh care and economy.
Early in 1913 thc Council along with the Council of Vancouver
city, went to thc Government petitioning them to pass a bill for the
annexation of South Vancouver io the city.   You know the outcome.
I am in favor of doing everything possible to strengthen our fire
department.
We must continue our endeavors along the liner, of securing a
permanent water supply. Very much has been accomplished during
thc past two years regarding this most vital necessity.
I favor the encouragement of industries in our Municipality.
I would also favor the erecting at the earliest possible date of an
electric plant for the supplying of cheaper light in our Municipality,
as well as cheaper power.
I favor Municipal ownership of our public utilities.
In closing I wish to say that if returned for the year 1914, I will, as
in the past, endeavor to serve the best interests of all, always endeavoring to uphold the credit and dignity  of  our   Municipality.

In asking your suffrage foe" Ceuincilleir feer Ward 111 I am
anxious to complete the weirk I undertook. While in tlu Council we
have been able to accomplish much useful work, yd some of the
principal work, the fulfillment eef which 1 am anxious tee see brought
to a successful issue, is yet unfinished.
During my term of eefTicc the staff at thc Municipal Hall has
been partially reorganized. It is now em a better basis, and run on
business lines.
You will see freun the Engineer's report that much useful weirk
has been done. We have now commenced tee put iti permanent reeads,
and I hope at nee distant date to sec Victoria Reeail, Fraser Avenue,
and Main Street paved.
Unfortunately, in spite of my protest. Main Street was let without tenders being called leer ami I am in favor of all streets where
large expenditure of money arc at stake, that tenders sheeiild be called
for. I am alsei in favor of deeing all work possible by day labor,
giving a fair day's pay feer a fair day's weirk.
If elected I shall continue tei devote my time tei promoting the
best interests of the Municipality as a whole and the Ward 1 represent. I am also in favor of all council meetings being held at night.
Last year ,I-succeeded in getting a resolution through to that effect
but I was-overruled.
During the past year 1 have devoted the whole e.f my time to
the interests of the Municipality, ever striving to give the best that
was in me. If I have fallen short in any of my supporters' expectations, it has been througii no lack of effort in striving to dee my duty
towards the Municipality. Honesty and Economy has been my motto
in looking after Municipal matters,
