South Vancouver Will Organize Her Own Regiment
And Fund for Dependents of Men at the Front
It   was   Mr.   II.   B.   A.   Vogel   who
moved, at the Monday night meeting
of the Hoard of Trade, that Seeuth
Vancouver proceed to organize a regiment for the defence of the Empire,
Tlic reseelution was seconded by Mr.
Diffner. A nieeling is tej be held at
a place  and date  tee hc decided  upeen
by the committees of the  Board of
Trade   anel    Municipal   council   when
a definite start will be made on the
organization.
Mr. Vogel'a remarks wcre inspiring to a degree', lie is an ex-German militia man. His stand at this
time is possibly typical of that of
thousands eif his countrymen who
have found liberty and justice under
thc folds of the Union Jack.
"But de. mit." said Mr. Vogel,
"send your boys to the fneiit untrained. Such actum would be cold murder. 1 bejje've that every Canadian
should know something of home defence. We in Soulh Vancouver
sh.eiild begin training, so that wc may
be reaely and useful when called upem
to act.''
Reeve   Kerr   attended   the   meeting
to state thai the pe.licy of the municipal council'would be to sacrifice to
the last dollar tei maintain thc families of those- patriots wh.. have gi.njs
tei the front. The Reeve's remarks
were greeted with applause, He slated that South Vancouver should have
her own war fund and should endeavor tei herself maintain any of ihe
families wlvesc breadwinners arc now
under arms. Just what plan the
municipality would follow in this regard, the reeve was not prepared to
sav. lie believe.1 that the work of
relief should not take on thc appearance of charity. While he approved
of the holding of patriotic concerts
throughout the district and also of a
general campaign for war funds, he
declared that it was the duty nf thc
whole municipality to unite in the care
of ihe dependents, of the soldiers
from  South  Vancouver.
Mr. W. J. Prowse slated that it
would bc a blot on South Vancouver
if the people did not unite to do their
duty by the wives and families of
the men win. have gone away. There
were more than a hundred men freim
Seeuth Vancouver already under arms,
Mr.  Prowse stated.
President Hodgson was of Ihe opinion that a general cfTeert. regardless
of ways ami means, should be made
tei support the war fund.
Councillor Winram. in discussing
the situation, declared lhat in his
opinion the relief of the dependents
now in active service, could be financed by the municipality without
raising the taxes or making any extraordinary appropriations. 1 he
councillor'stated that the salary lists
et the municipality and of the South
Vancouver School Board should both
be subjected to the pruning h"ok and
that the savings might be devoted to
the war fund.
This brought forth a storm from
"Magistrate Johnston, who declared
that petty politics should not be considered at a time when the Empire
was in danger. He urged that every
ahle bodied man in the district endeavor to get tn the front. The war
fund and thc home guard were secondary propositions. So far as cutting down thc salaries of the school
teachers, he said that it would bc
striking at the very foundations of
the structure the men of the Empire
Were endeavouring to defend, it the
matter of education were sacrificed
for the relief of widows or depend
*nts.
Councillor Winram explained that
he was loyal in every regard but that
the greatness of the Empire had
been builded upon sound linance and
this he was endeavoring to advance
in suggesting economizing in the
conduct of the affairs of South Van
couver.
' Chairman Whelpton, of the South
Vancouver School Board, was opposed to the cutting down of salaries
He pointed to the .efficiency of the
present school teachers and employees, Their loyalty had been shown
In times of peace when they had sacrificed their salaries for the relief of
children in South Vancouver and the
teachers as a body were now willing  to  give   a   liberal   percentage   of
their salaries freely and without pressure in support of a South Vancouver war fund or any other cause thai
would bc In the general relief of
worthy  residents.
Mr. VV. J. Allen, in opposing taxing the teachers and municipal employees specially, declared that the
rich man who had "cleaned up" on
Ilis real estate Venturis when these
employees were struggling along "ii
small   salaries,  might  he  reached.
Mr. Charles Harrison believed ihat
a conference with the- council would
decide best the most effective way of
getting together a war  fund.
It was pointed out by Mr. Murray
that the advisability should further
be considered of joining with the
city in the getting together of a war
fund. Mr. Murray believed that there
were in the neighborhood eel" .1,000
men from Seeuth Vancuuver already
plisted in local regiments. Over
nnc hundred could he fitund in tlle
ranks of lhe Irish Fusiliers and of
these many had already left for the
front.
It was decided to send

Refusal   to

In a statement given to thc press on the day of the declaration of K ar between Great Britain antl Germany, but before -ear had been declared, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Liberal Leader, emphasized the necessity, in the presence of so grave a crisis, of calling "a truce to party
strife." In full sympathy with this attitude thc CHINOOK refrains, for Ihe present, from publishing any matter calculated to excite partisan
discussion, or to embarrass thc Government in any way at this hour of supreme moment to Canada, and to the world. It must not bc assumed
that, in adopting this course, Liberalism in Canada is abandoning, in any particular, any of the policies whether of trade, tarif. or defence li'/nV/i
it sought to enforce while in power, and for which it has strenuously contended in Opposition. On thc contrary, existing conditions have, it is
believed, shown as nothing else could possibly have done, the wisdom and patriotism of these policies, and may yet lead to their general acceptance. Neither is it to bc assumed that the Administration has so improved as to render its conduct above criticism in its present management of thc country's affairs. It is simply that it is thought fair-minded Canadians everywhere, recognize this is not the time for party divisions,
party debate and party struggle, and Will agree that comment which might otherwise very properly bc made with propriety and without loss,
bc withheld until a later time.

McQuarrie, of N'ew Westminster, who

make the North Arm nf the Fraser a

'THE HOME GUARD
THAT South Vancouver will not be behind hand
in anything which can be done at the present
time to help the motherland was evidenced Monday
night when the Council and the local Hoard of Trade
met in conference, the object being to institute a home
guard and the formation of a war fund to look after
the welfare of thc dependents of those who have joined
the colors at the call of their country.
Collingwood, tlie home of that patriot of patriots, J.
Francis Bursill, has also taken tip the project and it
would seem as if South Vancouver would go one better than the city in having two "regiments" quartered
within its borders.
The loyal spirit is not alone confined to the up-
growns either. One needs only take a walk through
some of the streets after school hours lo have \cry
visible evidence that the young South Vancouverites
have already started training in their own little way.
The business men of the district do not intend to
spare themselves either in anything they can do to
help the families of those who have gone to answer
the call of duty.
No special effort will be required to get the citizens
at large to do their share in providing a war fund
which will adequately fill the bill so that the anxiety
entailed by having a loved one abroad will not be accentuated by the spectre of want.
South Vancouver will do its duty���aye nobly.
LITTLE   MOUNTAIN   PARK AS    A    DRILL
GROUND
IN connection with the scheme for the establishment
of a Home Guard for Vancouver and district a
very sensible suggestion was promulgated by a citizen of Vancouver���Mr. Seymour by name.
Thinking to, as it were, kill two birds with one
stone, namely, provide a drill ground for the guard
and find work for the unemployed, Mr. Seymour suggests that the city and municipality should take up the
lease of Little Mountain Park offered them by the C.
P. R. and proceed forthwith to develop it.
In his letter to the papers he goes into detail whereby he thinks the scheme could be financed. His idea
is that the city and municipalities interested should issue bonds in small amounts for local sale and which
could be paid for in cash or in goods.
The clearing of the 100 odd acres could be then
gone on with, providing a host of men with work,
which though not being remunerated at the rate of
wages prevailing would still be sufficient to provide
the necessaries of life during the winter.
He points out that nowhere in the city or surrounding districts is there a tract of ground more suitable
for the purpose ">f training a large body of men. The
military authorities themselves realize thc want here
alluded to and perhaps they would be interested in
the scheme.
Apart from that a park is badly needed in this part
of the community) no recreation place of any size being nearer than Stanley Park.
It is to be hoped Mr. Seymour's idea will lie taken
up by the various councils and boards of trade. There
is itot'i'ng in hi-, idea which is not ihoroi'p'dv practical and if carried out would redound to the credit of
the city in the years to come when it could be said
that the people of Vancouver used intelligence in their
loyalty.
COULD   THE  WORKERS PUT AN END   TO
WAR?
IN discussing the various aspects of the war in progress on the continent, the most common used
phrase one hears in the street and in public places
where men congregate in numbers is "The war was
bov.nd to come."
As often as not thc sentence is used without very
much attention having been given to the reason
prompting its utterance.
Quite true the evidence to support the contention
was not hidden in thc background.
For a number of years back the governing forces
pf Germany have been adding to their army atid navy
in ever-increasing numbers. It had long been recognized that the German army had reached a state of
efficiency in which it would be able at any given moment to launch itself against any two European pow-
. ers. With the forming of the triple alliance it looked
very much like as if Germany had the mainland of
the continent practically at its mercy any time the
"mailed fist" deemed it wise to use its power.
With such a preponderance of weight on the military
side it Was only natural to suppose that a navy would
become essential to the coming of that long-dreamed
of time when Germany would be the supreme power
in the control of the continent of Europe.
The building of warships and naval armaments
went merrily on. Xo sooner would Germany lay
down the keel of one Dreadnought than Britain laid
down tun. \e> sooner was nne turned out than it was
declared obselete in favor of some newer style. Mil-
lie.n- upon millions of money was spent in an endeavor tee get the upper hand in scientific war armaments, iiie yearly estimate of both nations went up
by leaps and bounds and no matter how liberal the
first lord of the admiralty seemed to be in his estimates for the forthcoming year, there were always
plenty critics reaely t'i swear that Britain's lie mor
was at stake.
Conferences were held between the twu nations
wu'i tiie object of calling a halt but the only outcome
of these were bigger additions to thc two navies.
All thc time the workers looked stolidly on. True
when an additional tax on some commodity was necessitated in order to provide for the fighting machines there were little petty agitations started wilh a
view to putting a stop thereto, but after a while it
would be forgotten.
The workers in both countries were so much occupied in trying to better their social conditions that
they lost sight of the main enemy���the spectre ever
in the background which acted as a buffer when any
scheme of social reform was mooted.
Gradually, however, the workers were being educated on the waste entailed in this insane policy and
the German government were becoming aware of the
rise of the socialist and labor vote throughout the
fatherland. They did their best at all times to grapple with this "sedition," but despite all their hounding.
the "vote" grew larger every election.
The workers had nothing to gain from war and
in both countries the leaders were agitating for international peace.
Little attention was paid to such propaganda. The
seemingly impossible idea of a "general strike" by the
workers of the two countries should a state of war be
declared made the leaders at times look ridiculous.
But who among those who were so ready to denounce a policy which would bring about the alliance
��� workers of both nations ever dreamt of such a
cruel, devastating war as the one in which these two
countries are engaged in.
War is on and from all appearances it will be
fought to a bitter end.
The war lords have built their armies and battleships with the blood of the workers, their wives and
children.
Should the conclusion of the war find the workers
educated sufficiently in the horrors thereof to say
that from henceforth there will be no war���who will
say that it has come in vain ?
THE CITY'S PESTS
THE cruel murder of Detective Levis by a cowardly
ruffian last week harks us back again to little
more than a year ago when Constable Archibald, was
also foully murdered in the performance of his duty.
The average citizen does not fully comprehend the
danger that our police force in Greater Vancouver
are faced with every day in the year.
The outburst of indignation which occurred when
Constable Archibald was murdered was responsible
for some little bil of cleaning up being done in having
the brush cleared away. It was intended at that time
to clean up the water front and rid it of the desperadoes who found a haven in thc disreputable houses
located there.
Had that been done perhaps this tragedy would
never have occurred.
However, apart from that, it seems to us that a
stricter surveillance of these monsters should be undertaken and the police be given greater power so
people might be able to traverse the streets without
being in terror of assassination by any of these
weeds.
TliO carrying of a gun or the implement that might
be able to cause bodily harm should be sufficient reason for the proprietor thereof being sent to the penitentiary. No peaceful, law-abiding citizens go about
with cither of these weapons on theii1 person.
It is to be hoped that the police will be successful in
their quest for the murderer and that Ins capture will
be accomplished without any more bloodshed.
Meanwhile the sympathy of all will be extended to
Mrs. Levis and her young children in their sad bereavement.    "Tis a cruel world!"
,-d in Germany, the nation would not have spent the
uindreds of millions of dollars which wcre taken
'rom profitable industry to create the great war mach-
ne of the Empire. But thc diplomacy of the nation
vould have been directed towards assuring prolonged
:eace.
Surely thc time has come at last when thc power
vill  be taken out of the hands of any one man to
launch such an avalanche of misery and suffering, of
leath   and   disease,   as   seems   inevitable   throughout
Europe.     It  is  an  awful  thing,  however, that  such
laughter should be necessary to put an end to Ger-
nan autocracy.    But as the die has been cast there
eemi no other way.   And for the unparalleled crime
if   which   the  German   Kaiser   has  been  guilty,   he
hould meet the same fate as the man who a hundred
vears ago was filled with the same insane ambition
to rule the whole world.
It was ninety-nine years ago that the Battle of Waterloo was fought and Napoleon exiled to the Island
of St. Helena. We thrust that the same fate is in
store for Emperor William, who has shown himself
to be careless of the happiness and safety of his people,
and has allowed his insatiable ambition to control him,
though it cost the lives of a million people. Civiliza-
ton stands aghast today at the awfttlness of the conflict which he deliberately precipitated.
ONE MAX'S CRIME
IT is a terrible thing that one man should have it
in his power to plunge nearly the whole civilized
world in a war such as that which is now raging in
Europe.
If Emperor William had died a month ago the
peasants of Europe would now be reaping their harvest. There would bc hope and happiness in a million homes where fear prevails today and misery will
come tomorrow. For it is not only the hundreds of
thousands of men who will be killed, but the millions
depending upon them, and who love them, and whose
lives will be darkened by their death, that must be
taken into the awful account.
We venture to say that the German people do not
want war. The men who fill the ranks never want
war. If it had been possible to submit the question
to the German people, or if free institutions had exist-
GERMAN-CANADIANS' POSITION
THE Wainwright, Alberta, Star tells of natives of
Germany in that town who have shown unhesitatingly their desire for the success of the British
arms. Among the contributors to the Daughters of
the Empire fund arc Adolph Kampher and Jacob Goe-
hring. From all over the country come similar bits
of information. In Berlin, Ontario, fifty-seven young
Germans have volunteered for service with the first
Canadian contingent.
Among the teachers at Woodstock College, Ontario,
is Mr. F. V. Riethdorf, who served in the German
army. In the course of a letter to the Woodstock
Sentinel-Review hi says:
"We must deeply sympathize with the German people in the sufferings and dangers brought upon them
by their ruling classes, by their aligarchic, insane, military government. It is the Germany of the clenched
fist and drawn sword, of the shining armor and the
sabre rattling in the scabbml that calls for no sympathy on our part. It is the Germany that has precipitated the monstrous world struggle of the day that
fills us with horror and indignation. I am a native
German and former German soldier. My own position in this struggle is perfectly clear. My loyalty
to the British flag makes me stand against Germany,
though with a bleeding heart. Furthermore, I desire disaster to thc German army in this war for the
reason that it will mean restoration of fellowship
again in the western nations for one of the greatest
peoples of Europe. A liberated, free, democratic Germany will start on a new and lasting era of prosperity,
of peace, arm in arm with England and France."
This i.s an admirable statement of what we believe
is the position of the masses of German-Canadians,
comments the Edmonton Journal. That many of
them have been drawn two-ways i.s not hard to understand but, "with bleeding hearts" in most cases, they
have taken the same stand as Mr. Reithdorf and have
taken it unalterably. Wc are tinder so great an obligation to the Germans in a variety of ways, in literature, art, science and otherwise, that the consummation which the Woodstock teacher hopes for should
also be welcomed heartily by thc English-speaking
world.

A 'Town That Wants to Change its Name
Montreal Gazette
The citizens of Little Neck, N.Y., arc agitating for
i change of name, as they think the present one is too
suggestive of clams.    What ails thc  people of this
continent that they arc so sensitive as to names ?   Rat
Portage had to go, and now it is Little Neck.   By and
by somebody will be demanding that Medicine Hat
be abolished, and perhaps even Moose Jaw, two towns
whose names bring them international fame.    Then
wretched humorists will have a fine source of inspiration cut off.   It is a shame.

In Toronto thc Good
Toronto Star
Two Toronto policemen were walking along the
street on Sunday when they heard sounds of laughter
coming from a house. They immediately raided the
place and found a number of Chinamen playing fan-
tan. These foreigners will learn in time that Sunday
is no day in which to laugh in this city.

The Rod and the Child
Toronto News
We announced last week that a prize of one dollar
would be given to the first reader who could cite the-
chapter and verse of the Bible where this sentence occurs : "Spare the rod and spoil the child." A good
friend in Dresden shouts Proverbs xiii., 24, and
clamors for the dollar. Another in Grand Valley
gives two references, Proverbs xxiii., 13 and 14, and
Proverbs xxix., 15 and 17. She is also holding out
her apron hoping that a dollar will fall into it. We
appreciate the fact that the sentiment is the same, but
"Spare the rob and spoil the child" is from Butler's
Hudibras, Part ii., Canto 1, line 843. It is not in the
Bible at all.   (That is why wc offered the dollar.)

A Whisky-loving Senator
Montreal Mail
The valet of a deceased Canadian senator testified

preventing his master "swimming in whisky."   This

A man who was found by two railroad men in a
patch of woods near the Cornell boathouse at Pottgh-

himself, that he remembered nothing since buying a
cigar in a store in New York City.    His statement
sounds strange, but may be the truth just the same.
There are some awful cigars.

MONSIEUR LE MARQUIS
By   Isabella   Kaiser
zi>
She- was .hi actress, lie- was a
marquis.
They ili<l n.,1 love each either. They
were nol even acquainted. She shune
upon the siam, he shone nowhere.
She wai a si.ir at its zenith, hailed
with   acclamation    every   evening   al
the Theatre Lyrique; he wai merely
a tun thai had set    No one noticed
him as he' patted, feer his name.
though intcribed in the heraldic rc-
cordi e,i Prance, wai neet written e,n
hit face. He was pale freun want,
and if his coat-of-armi bore gules
with a bend 'er. bit doublet ihowed
threadbare, and his slmcs and shirt-
frill made spe.rt fe,r the wind through
innumerable queer little holes.
She we,re diamonds in the evening
een her hare shoulders; men ruined
themselves for her. He hail rui.ied
himself fnr others,     Hut  she after all
was only tin- Demoiselle Ninon
Duchene eef ihe Theatre Lyrique,
while he was always the Marquis
Axel de Saint-Fleury, and if he had
possessed a decent coal in which to
pretenl himself, the eh.eirs of the
salons in the Boulevard Saint-Ocr-
inain wemld have- Henvn wide before
him; doors through which the beauty
and the diamonds eef Demoiselle Duchene \votild   never,  never  pass.
She knew it hy sufficient experience.
She was tormented hy ambition, Her
name signified a tree, hut it proved
singularly cramping fur tlle bird-like
soul that dreamed 'ef building its
neit een a hefty bough.
The singing-woman lived in luxury, and the nobleman starved inch
by inch. She heard people talk of
the ruined marquil, and a fantastic
idea  t.eok possession of her.
She opened negotiations with him
by letter.
She was greatly courted, and she
wished to change her plchian name,
but not saddle herself with a husband.
Hi' was intensely wretched, and resigned herself to accepting gold
wherewith to prolong his life, but
not a bourgeois wife to share it with
him.
They came tei terms. The strange
bargain was struck, and Demoiselle
Duchene drew up the clauses of a
very  original   marriage  contract.
"Article 1.���The Marquis de Saint-
Fleury will be present on Wednesday tlle 28th of this month at the
church of St. Roch to enter with me
into the bonds of matrimony. Having neither the time nor the desire
to attend to the procuring of the necessary documents with their attendant expenses, I will send the marquis
two hundred francs if he will take
these   matters   into   his   own   hands."
The marquis returned answer as
follows :
"I accept fur Wednesday, the 28th
of this month. Two hundred francs
will cover the expenses indicated, and
I will make all lhe arrangements. I
beg, however, tu call the attention
of Demoiselle Duchene to the fact
lhat I shall need an additiemal hundred francs fur a new suit of chethes
anil1 a new wig."
"Article 2.���The marquil will bring
a friend with him. I will do the
tame. The marquis will give mc his
hand tee conduct me to the altar at
which we are to be married."
The  marquis  replied :
"I accept, although 1 feel humiliated at not receiving your authorization
to fetch you from your house. I am
obliged t'i decline your condition in
regard tee bringing a friend with me;
all my friends have left nie. If you
persist in your request I will bring
my shoemaker, the only person whe,
has  remained'  faithful   to  me."
"Article 3.���Immediately after the
nuptial benediction ihe marquis will
receive 300 livres. being llu- first quarter of the allowance of 1,200 livres
per annum, which will he paid to him
by   a   notary   until   my  death."
The marquis replied laconically
"I accept tlle ,1(XI livres."
"Article 4 and last.���After the ceremony ye en will leave me at once. Yem
will never cn.ss the threshold "i my
house, and if by chance we should
some day meet in the street ur elsewhere,   you   promise   te>   behave   as
though we were not acquainted,"
This was the condition eef lhe ce>n-
tract to which the marquis subscribed
with the must knightly readiness:
"Approved and accepted with all my
heart."
The   marriage   t,..>k   place.     All   the
stipulated condition! were scrupulously observed. The pair scarcely
looked al each other, even befure
lhe altar; each was despising llie
either, and both were ashamed of
their   act.
When they came out of the church
the Marquise de Saint-Fleury entered her carriage, wilh a rather more
stately bearing than Ninon Duchene
had assumed, and the Marquis walked home to his garret, somewhat
bent under the weight of thc action
which from the depths of his poverty
he had just perpetrated. And they
did not see each other again.
II
Some years after this marriage the
breath of Revolution swept SO fiercely eiver France that the social edifice
crumbled to pieces. All classes, all
destinies, were scattered like grain
beneath the onslaught of a blind and
insane winnower. From the ruins
arose the convulsive evolution of a
new world, a monstrous outburst of
ideas, of genius, crime and virtue,
madness  and   heroism.
People lived on the brink of death.
Death was now the supreme, the
most noble act of life. At the whim
of raving committees men and women were hurried in batches to the
scaffold. All were suspected, all
guiltless alike. The faith that had
Upheld past generations was disparaged and scoffed at, royalty was untie qmlar, great names wcre marked
out for destruction, the aristocracy
torn  up by  the  roots.
And Ninon Duchene, whose dickybird soul had dreamed of nesting at
the top of the tree, was among the
| first to be caughl in lhe Itorm. She
was Hung iniee a dungeon in the
Carmes  prison.    Citoyenne   Duchene
""iilel assure illy have been allowed
tee trill and warble in peace; the Marquise eh- Saint-Fleury must undergo
the doom reserved f'er all women oi
Inl    Social   e'las-
i iiie elay in Thermidor 1794, ihe
was bre.light e.ul int'e lhe courtyard
eef tlle Conciergerie. Her name wal
em llie list handed lhat me,ruing lee
Fouquier-Tinville.    It   was  her  pass-
peert   tee   tlle'   gllillulilU'.
Winn she came into ihe- renin thai
was tiie ante-chamber of death, opening straight by ils cl,,,,r <eii tee Samson's wagon, she tottered as she
walked and trembled in every limb;
twee guarils had lo drag her along.
She' had never learnt how le. live, and
death  could  not dignify  her.
She had denied lhe noble name
which had once been the object of
her ambition, and which she had
borne with so much ostentation. She
had proclaimed her plchian eerigin.
She was not believed. Her carriages,
her linen, her writing-paper divulged
the marchioness' coronet, anel the
people win, thronged the parapet, th*
sovereign, ferocious People, wine had
rushed hither tee h,ok on, lee applaud
acts of courage and to brand faint
hearts with disgrace, hooted contempt at the woman who had haggled with her judges for her life-.
She was yemng and beautiful, anel
she clung tee life. Hope, lhe angel
eif the doomed, had ne.t forsaken her
iu priseeii, and was with her still, here
in the- ill-omened yard. With painful
eagerness she scanned the crowd, and
lhe wilderness of the sea iif faces
slruck terreer to her heart. Not a
single friendly countenance. Not eme
freun among all those whu had acclaimed her un her stage-evenings 'if
triumph, and could bear witness un
her behalf. No relative; no protector; no one lu tell tlle judges not tu
behead a yuung weiman who knew
only how to laugh and sing, who was
neet ready tee die. Oi heroism she
knew nothing, never having soared
teewards such heights. No une had
ever taken tlle trouble to leach her
things uf that  kind.
There were about a hundred unfortunate persons penned up there fur
the slaughter; but when their names
fell from the lips of the public ar-
raigner, the condemned men and women rose and walked with tranquil
step teewards the cart, bidding one
another a simple farewell with a look,
a handclasp. Freedom was awaiting
them at the foot of thc blood-stained
guillotine, the freedom uf the Beyond.
Among all these Ninon alone was
nut ready. Suddenly she turneil
white. Frum thc lips uf the ruffian
in authority there fell a sonorous
name���her  uwn :
"Marquise  de  Saint-Fleury I"
She stood speechless, hcr tongue
paralyzed   with   horror.
Hut from the spectators crowded
together on the parapet a voice rang
out,   confidently,   haughtily   calm ;
"Present!"
The judges were thunderstruck;
they raised their heads in bewilderment.
"Hi, you up there." bellowed one
of the guards, "stop that trilling!"
Collecting  himself again   after  this
untimely   interruption,  the   arraigner
repeated the summons���
Marquise  de  Saint-Fleury!"
And for the second time, with now
a shade of impatience, from the parapet above fell the voice, compelling
attention; fur the ring uf truth was
in it as it answered proudly tu the
blood-thirsty   roll-call :
"Presenl.   I   tell  you!"
There was a moment of confusion
and uncertainty. The cr.iwel cursed
ami swore at the interruption.
"Bring  him    lure!"    ordered    the
jllelge'S.
Several hands hael already fallen mi
the man's shoulder. Courteously,
with tin' uinieest willingness, he accompanied his captors.
When he appeared below in the
courtyard, a buzzing clamor anise un
his path. Was ii self-sacrifice ur
sheer lunacy that had prompeted the
man tu pass ilie threshold of death
eef  his own  accord?
The judge interrogated him severe-
ly : ,. .
"Citizen, how dare' you interrupt
ih,'   roll-call?"
"Citizen, you pronounced mj name.
I am the Marquis ele Saint-Fleury "
"Veen? Vou are mail!"
"Pardon, citizen. 1 have all my
head on my shoulders, seeing that I
have just maele yeeu the eiffer e,t it,"
he repiled. bowing in ironical deference.    Several  peeeple  laughed.
The man who thus trilled with the
death-penalty was neither old nor
young. _ Hc had the shabby appearance uf e,ne whom life has worsted,
yet betrayed in his dignified bearing
that indefinable something which is
more potent tu reveal the gentleman
than titles eir insignia. From the
pocket uf his doublet he teeuk eiut his
papers of identification, ami handed
them  to the judge.
The men glanced down the papers,
seeing at once thai they constituted
a perfectly authentic patent of lability. Irritateel at being thrown eiut
of their stride hy an additional victim thrusting himself into their hands
in this gratuitous way with his high-
tuned   clumsiness,   thev    exclaimed:
"But, after all. we have nothing lei
do with yuu. Yuur name is neit em
the list; the name we have is that eef
the  Marquise de Saint-Fleury."
All eyes turned towards the pale
woman who had instinctively drawn
near on hearing her name. She
hung her head like a creature self-
convicted of the crime of cowardice.
Was he going to crush her. out of
revenge for the humiliation he had
endured through her? Or was he
going to sacrifice himself for her���
why should he    Feir at first sight she

"Famous Battles of Napoleon," a
four-reel Historic Picture with human
quality, will be offered to the patreeiis
of   this   up-to-date   picture   house.
Thc picture opens with the French
invading Germany and gives an animated scene as the army breaks across
the frontier. The next big scene
is Frederick of Prussia drawing up
an ultimatum. It is perfectly done;
the king acts royally, and there arc
line faces among his ministers. Later
Napoleon is shown rejecting the
terms. In appearance he is acceptable and the player's acting, as the
picture pre egresses, adds to his effectiveness and makes a gored portrayal. One scene in the first reel
will stir the sympathy of all. It is
the death in battle of the yeiung and
romantic looking Prince Louis, and
is finely acted and full of natural
grace. Following this is a wonderful vision scene in which Napoleon
dreams of his troops going to victory at Saalfelel. It is a masterpiece
nf photographic illusion and stage direction.
There is a group of scenes in reel
two dealing with Queen Louise and
her patriotic endeavors to help. There
is also a beautiful scene in a farmhouse where she has taken refuge
with her two sons. All these are acted to give an indication of motherly
tenderness which, because of its restraint and sincerity, will move thc
heart of the audience deeply. In thc
settings and general handling of these,
as well as other like scenes in this
offering, there is an art .sense
which makes them dignified and picturesque. The photography is fair all
through; but in many places it is perfect.
This picture will be shown only on
Saturday, September 5���Matinee and
Evening. The usual price of admission will he charged for the matinee,
but owing to the great expense of
showing this famous picture the evening admission will he 10c for all.

appeal. It was signed by l)r. Anna

Ire,111 headquarters here telling tlle
need of fundi to carry <en an effective campaign for suffrage in seven
itates.
These   states   are   Ohio,    Missouri,
Nebraska, the Dakota*, Montana and
Nevada. It is planned to spend $15.-
DOO in Ohio, $10,000 in Missouri, and
$5.<KH) iu each of the 'ether slates
named.
"Women in many ages have taken
this means nf promoting, great

"Queen Isabella nf Spain promised

MONSIEUR LE MARQUIS
(Continued frum page 3)
had recognized the man uf the church
uf St. Ruch. the man wbuse misery
she bad exploited, the real Marquis
de Saint-Fleury.
"Yuur  wife,  doubtless?"
The marquis scanned her face witli
a rapid glance, and, turning tu the
judges, said :
"Pardon, citizens, I have lived alone
all my life."
It was said sn simply that'no one
suspected his sincerity; one of the
guards, moreover, recognized liim,
and slapped him un the shoulder with:
"I'arbleu! Why, it is Citizen Saint-
Henry! More by token, he has been
my neighbor, on tlie same floor, for
years
and years! He lives by him-
lf. lie is a poor man, though lie
shares what lie has with the needy."
The judges interrupted the speaker.
All that mattered little. The question was: Why had lie so gratuitously offered his life to the judges in
this way? Tlie accused woman was
pretty���!
"Do you assert that you don't know
this woman, Citizen Fleury?"
The marquis turned to look her
straight in the face. He saw her
beauty, and lie saw the fright shc
was in. Faithful tu his plighted wurd,
he   bowed   gracefully,  and   said :
"Madame, 1 regret to say that I
du nut know yuu." Then he added:
"I have never had the pleasure of
being received at your house; you
have never done me the honor to
come to mine. You are too beautiful,  and   I   am  too poor."
Then he turned to the judges and
announced.
"Citizens, I believe 1 heard this
woman sing une evening; she is the
Citoyenne Ninon Duchene uf the
Theatre Lyrique. Su yeeu behead
song-birds, now, du yuu?"
She raised her eyes in hope; ber
head' grew erect. She looked at the
marquis. At this moment tbe face
of the man who was offering his life
for hers bore to her eyes tlle all-conquering beauty of a  savior's  face.
The judges grinned and leered.
"Oho! Is that the celebrated divette
Duchene?"
"Why nut make her sing?" suggested the marquis. "Her voice will furnish   ber  best  credentials."
"Let her sing! let her sing!" shouted the crowd.
Ninon Duchene did not wait to be
asked twice. Her courage returned
the moment she was allowed to fight
with hcr uwn weapons. Once un
her own ground she was sure of vic-
tory. Was she thc darling of
���hi' public?
She closed her eyes fur a moment,
thai she might fnrgel the grim setting uf her present stage. When she
opened them again she was smiling.
Never bad she sung fur applause as
she neiw sang fnr her life.

Breton ballad
She sang thc simpl
with   deep   emotion.
A momentary calm fell athwart
thc tempest of Revolution. It was
like hearing a bird sing. All those
condemned victims, storm-tossed on
the ocean of wild human passion���
had not they, too, like little Yvon,
a mother or sister somewhere asking
for news of them, news they would
hear nevermore? None uf them
would ever return from this sea far
away.
The straii of tender sweetness up-
lifted thus in the midst of blood and
horror, the mother's lament at an
hour like this when they wcre
slaughtering thc sons, thc breath of
the open sea sweeping strong with
its scent pf brine across tbe fetid
Courtyard, the woman who smiled
and wept as she sang, touched some
better chord in the herd of men; for
a moment they laid aside their cynicism and ceased from their hideous
work.
One of the judges applauded, and
all present followed suit in a sudden
burst 'if French enthusiasm. The
mob on the wall clapped and shouted:
"Vive   Ninon!"
Alone the Marquis de Saint-Fleury
stood lueiking at her wilh an enigmatic smile. She noticed that he was
giving no sign of admiration. Doubtless he despised her fur singing for
her life. A flush of shame mantled
hcr  pale  face.
"Citoyenne Duchene, we were misinformed. It was yuur name that
gave rise to suspicion,"
A jeering voice was heard saying:
"These actresses dearly love tu wrap
themselvec up in a high-sounding
title!"
"Let her go," ordered the judges.
Ninon   Duchene  was  saved.
An official sauntered up to hcr with
jaunty familiarity, and addressed ber
under Iiis breath. The pscudo-niar-
chioness no longer imposed upun him
any slmw uf respect; she was an
equal, a woman uf easy virtue, no
doUbt
"Come on. Ninon, come with mc!"
She recoiled instinctively, with a
shudder /rum head tu foot. After
halting un the threshold uf death
wdiere all was raised to a higher level,
after a flash of sincere feeling in
which her womanhood had awakened into life, this brutal lapse into
vulgarity stunned her. She burned
with  indignation.
The marquis turned to the officials
and said in a tone of dignity : "Come,
citizens, let there be an end tu this.
lie content with the Marquis de
Saint-Fleury, I am the last of my
name. We have wasted time enough
trilling. I am anxious to read in tne
footsteps  of my   King."
That speech condemned him to
death.
Ile looked happy and relieved. After bis dreary lile and his undigni-
lield mesailliaiice, he felt that a voluntary death would rehabilitate him
a little. He had shaken off his chains;
he was a free man. As for that woman���pah! so beautiful and su cowardly.
She seemed to divine his thought.
Her  face crimsoned.
"Come, Ninon, come on, my dear!"
The guard wound his arm uncouthly
round her waist and tried to lead her
away���away  to  a  life  of shame.
What was taking place in the woman's  soul?
Moved by a feeling hitherto unknown, she yielded to a sudden impulse. Her true nature, so long stilled by a luxurous, indolent life, stood
revealed-! stung into being by the
weirds  of  a  generous  man.
With a spontaneous movement of
sincerity she brushed the guard aside
and sprang forward tu the man whu
had saved her. Ile had given her a
lesson in nobility worthy of his name
by  sacrificing himself in  hcr stead.
"Marquis! I release you from your
promise."
lie looked her uver frum head to
foot, intentionally refusing to understand her. "Citoyenne, you are free;
what further du yuu desire? Peace I"
She reddened under the quiet scum
with which he crushed her. Deeply
eliel she crave lhe respect eef this man.
His conduct inspired her with a sudden pure and voluntary luve, and her
face glowed.
"I do neet wish in owe my life to
a fraud. I am the Marquise de Salnt-
Fleury,   ymir   wife."
He loeekcd at her again. There was
a touch nf admiration in his eyes.
Gravely he said, in a low voice :
"My wife? If you are not afraid
to die, you may be my wife, madame."
"I no longer fear anything," she
confessed, "save having to go with
these men, back to the life that is
over for me. I have never known
how to live, but you have now taught
me  how  to  die.    May  I  come?"
The executioners wcre sneering.
They were furious at having been
duped. "Ha! It is for us to choose.
Enough uf this rubbish. Samson
waits for nobody. Make up your
mind,  one  way  or  the  other!"
"We are both quite ready," replied
the young woman bravely. And before ber husband could protest, as the
judges hesitated, she cried fearlessly,
with all tlie recklessness of her newborn heroism :
"Vive le  Roil"
"To death! to death!" Hut already
she was on the way thither, hand in
hand  with  her  husband.
At the gate she wished1 to stand
aside to let him pass, to concede to
him the precedence due to his rank.
Hut the marquis, bowing with the
lender dcotion which he would have
shown to bis queen, and yielding
precedence to her even in death, said,
in a clear voice, which was audible
to all:
"After you, Madame la Marquise.
SIX   REASONS
WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF
CREOSOTED WOOD
BLOCK PAVEMENTS
ITS DURABILITY���Does not crumble or pulverize under the densest traffic; second only to granite
blocks
ITS EASE OF REPAIR���No 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���The rattle and bang of
vehicles passing over its smooth surface absorbed
and muffled till the quiet of the dirt load 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 waterproot it does not differ in this respect
from asphalt.
We manufacture blocks of the highest possible
standard, the verv best materials onlv being used and
in thc DOMINION WOOD BLOCKS we believe
we produce an article that has no equal.

Sandy is Disappinted wi' the Result o' the Conference held owre at
Victoria last week
Weel freens, anither week has gone
bye in the war an' though the fechtin'
has  continued,  doubtless,  wi'  unaba-
| ted   vigor,   yet   there   disna   seem   tac
be   eeiiy   appreciable   chenge   in    the
situation worth makin' ony fuss owre.
Noo that  we hae passed  the initial
stages,  wV a'  the  frantic  excitement
I incidental   thereto   rapidly   vanishing,
I we gel mare time tae think owre the
1 Bubjeck   as   a   whole   anil   ponder   tlle
! thocht as tae  the ultimate ootcome
and the duraahon o' this terrible war.
Tiie  lirst questyin as tae the ultimate   ootcome���I    dinna   think   ony-
b'eely   needs  tae  loss  a  nieht's  sleep
j eewre.    But as tae thc duration, that's
1 quite anither questyin.    I  wis kin' ee'
1 inclined   tae   think   at   the   start   that
| the   whole   bizness   wud' be   short  an'
sudden���thinkin'   of   course   that   the
German   Navy wud  conic    out    like
nun   an'   fecht���but   wan   canna   belt
see noo that it's gaun tac tak quite ;;
time.     Hooever,  that'll  mak  it  a' the
mare decisive an' though it means the
1 ��� i-s ei' mony guid  men an' true���we
hae nae ither alternative.
I   hae  been   cimjitrin'    my    brains
Oris  week   back   as   tae  what   wud  be
the   maist    suitable   punishment    lor
lhat  sun  'if a gun, the  Kaiser  Hoch
W'ilhelni.     Efter   turnin'   aside   a   lot
o'   ideas   sic   as   makin'   him   rin   for
the  cooncil   in   Sooth   Vancouver,   or
tyin'  him   tae  a  pule  at  the  heid  o'
False Creek, 1  thocht  the maist suitable wey o' daen wud be tae turn liim
owre   tae   the   I'ark   Hoard   for  cxlii-
beeshun  purposes.    They  could  mak
room  in  the  bear's  den  for  him, an'
it wud be graun fun tae gae doon on
j a  Sunday an'  tak  practice  firm' pea-
| nuts  at   his  whiskers.     Yae  can  jist
! imagine hoo we wud enjoy it an' hoo
j happy Wullyum wud feel.
Hooever that can be left owre tac
I a   future   time,  an'   in   thc  meantime
we can turn oor thochts tae subjecks
nearer  hame  an'  ask    oorsels    what
! the  Province  an'  its  government  in-
' tend daen at this critical time.
I've nae doobt yae wud notice
there wis a conference held at Victoria last week, converted1 by McBride,
an' composed o1 the cooncils an'
boards o' trade, wan e.r twa "representative citizens," an' a delegate frae
the Trades' Council
It had been announced a week be-
fore in the papers an' maist a'body
yae talked tae wis discussin' the pro-
liabilities as tae what the premier an'
"his" government intended daen at
this   time.
It wis patent tac a'body that something had tae bc dune if the province's credit wis tae bc saved an' if
it wis tae tak its place among the rest
in bein' able tae pass this time o'
crisis.
W'e were a' prepared lae hear that
the premier had some weel thocht
e.ot scheme tae lay afore thc conference wherein it wud guarantee tae
merchant an' worker alike a certain
security o' tenure durin' the time oor
financial resources in the auld country were cut off. Liberals an' torys
alike wiul line welcomed ony scheme
that wud hae tided uver the distress
that is bound tae come unless no
i'emid by some means finance oorsels.
Thc delegates went owre there wi'
an open mind an' they came back the
same wey.
Frae what lias appeared in thc censored  accoont  n'  the  proceeding,  it
had
o'   a
the
^^^  dele-
Great  Eastern
their  railway
seems   that   the   prime   minister
uaething   tac  offer   in   the   wey
solution  u'  the  problem,  but  it
coorse o' his speech assured the
gates  that the  Pacific
intended  tae  gu  un   w
gradin' somewhere  in  tiie backwoods
atween here an' Feirt George.
Nary a word aboot that job doon at

started twa year age), an' which in it-

Nut a cheep as tac hoo the workers
that are employed by tlle cities an' in
the municeepajitlea wud be provided!
wi'  wmk  efter  thc jobs  they  are  on

These are too small questyins for
a big man like Maister McBride tae
hut lur his napper about.
At the close u' a speech which was
as usual, fu' u' meaningless nothings,
he told them that what they really
required was a little confidence an'
he hoped everything wud come oot
a'richt.
I likit tile wey Mayor Baxter u'
Vancoover went efter him on that
confidence bizness. He askit him if
confidence wud feed a hungry man.
He instanced where he had hundreds
u' applications every day in his uffice
frae nun eager an' willin' tae work,
but that hc had tae (urn them awa
for the city bad went the length o'
ils tether in the money line.
I wunner if McBride acquired his
wcicht wi' feedin' un confidence,
Insteed u' Inspirln' tlie delegates
wi' "liy ideas that wud lead tae some
wey out u' the difficulty, he only depressed them a' thc mare an' I've
nae doobt they wud need wan or twa
nips o' Scotch tae pu' them back tae
their sei again.
Tac be plump an' plain the government are as bankrupt in brains as
they  are  in   finances.
Noo I dinna want it tae be thocht
lhat I'm in ony sense wantin' tae
play e.ff McBride fur political pur-
puses. I hae jist as muckle use for
the liberals as I hae for tbe torys.
They're baith taured wi' thc yae stick.
Hut nu' tac mince ony words, I consider that a man in the poseeshun
that McBride is in, elected by the
rotes o' thc people tae manage thc
affairs o' the province���fur him at this
stage tae fold his arms an' say lie has
naethin' lae propose in tbe wey o'
helpin' the cities an' municipalities in
the crisis they are in���I consider liim
a bigger danger than a fleet o' German warships in Vancoover herbur
wiul be.
Thousands   o'   our   best
Neee, I formed an apeenyin o' Mc-
liride sin I cam tac the province���it
wis formed efter hcarin' him speak
at a meetin' in Westminster���I thocht
tae mysel lie wis a bit o' a blether, wi'
absolutely nae ideas whatever o1
staesmansllip���I thocht that then but
I'm convinced o' it noo.
The true cause o' the present criti-
al time In the affairs o' Vancoover an
the surroondin' municipalities has
been the rotten land policy pursued
by the government. If we leave oot
the Okanagan district an' maybe a
portion u' the Delta, which had been
settled afore the government came
intae office���the rest e>' the province
consists o' a few miserable chicken
ranches wi' the proprietors o' them
ele pe-nilin* on government work un
the ruads tae enable them tac mak a
livin'.
I min' o' hcarin' wan o' the tory
members for Vancoover yae time tellin' an audience that lie had seen bigger an better displays o' agricultural
produce at the Westminster Kxhilii-
shuns u' twenty years ago that what
was bein' shown now. Yae could
unly tak wan meanin' oot o' that.
Wi' the execpshun o' a few miserable ranches on thc outskirts an' a
number o' Chinese gairdens. the only think the province has tae show
fur thc millyins that hae been spent
un it is the cily o' Vancoover, an' that
wis practically gifted tae them by
nature.
It's lae be hoped tbat some man
���or men���'11 be big enough tae tackle tlie situation an' save the province frae becomin' a reproach in that
at a time o' crisis such as we hae at
presenl there wisna enough brains
left among us lac be able tae paddle
oor ain canoe.
Confidence   is a'   richt   if  yae   hae
onything  tae  bc confident  owre,  but
it  wunna  feed  a hungry man an'  his
weans.
Yours through the heather,
SANDY   MACPHERSON.
