Mr. C. Harrison Urges South Vancouver to Secure
Factory Sites and Direct Connection With C. N. R.
The First Secretary of the South
Vancouver Board of Trade Gives Vivid
Impressions of Visit to Old Country--
Makes Interesting Comparisons
oj Conditions of Trade There With
Those Here
Mr, Charles Harrison, as the lirst
secretary of the South Vancouver
Board of Trade is particularly well
acquainted with thc conditions of the
municipality, social, civic and industrial. During his connection with the
boanl he was a keen student of municipal problems and took a very active
interest in the development of South
Vancouver along progressive lines.
On his recent prolonged visit to
the Old Country, after many years
sojourn in Canada, Mr. Harrison was
able to make some interesting com-
[lariMHis as to the general conditions
prevailing in his old home land with
these of his new adopted country.
In an interview with a representative
of the "Chinook" Mr. Harrison gave
his impressions as follows :
"It is a very enjoyable time when
one is able after years of anticipation
to visit the old home land and again
meet those near and dear to us amidst
tlu- familiar and picturesque surroundings we have remembered with so
much pride since we left them to
cume  to this land  of opportunities.
"It comes as a great surprise to
lind that during the years spent here
one has all unconsciously formed an
attachment for his adopted country
and the broad-minded, energetic
spirit of its people, which is equal
to or greater than for the old land.
One feature which I found most noticeable was the great increase in the
cost ui living in e.ngland in proportion to thc accompanying increase in
tbe wages earned, there being an Increase of quite 30 per cent, in the
cust of living over thc cost when I
eft tee come to Canada first.
"Canada is much more correctly nn-
derstood by the people generally
than was the case some few years
hack, and more especially is this the
case in reference lo liritish Columbia. I found in well-informed quarters ihat the utmost confidence was
1n.lt in thc future of Vancouver amt
District, more
llie opening o
which is expected to have quite as
lood an effect on business here as is
"Iticipated by the greatest optimist
Mlong us, though such business will
of r . essity be of a  gradual growth.
"1 here is in England, also, quite an
unusual shortage of money for investment, although business is good
and few unemployed. This is gener-
'II) ascribed tei the effect of the situation in the Balkans having scared
capital somewhat, and to the unusual
number of borrowers feir large
imountl being in tbe market al the
Mme lime. This, together with opportunities offering at larger rates of
interesi is. to my mind, thc reason
"" municipal bonds are not selling,
''though there is, to sonic extent, a
'"line;   that   Canadian   municipalities
mi'-    <-'���      �� iiiuviiin i     iknu
especially     follouriM
af   the   Panama   Canal,
are not quite so conservative in their
borrowings as is desirable. This one
can understand somewhat, Taking
Soulh Vancouver as an instance, here
is a municipality (and by municipality they understand us tee be practically a village in a farming community) borrowing large sums of
money annually, quite as large sums
as they would expect a large town or
city to be borrowing. This naturally has the appearance of frenzied finance to the small investor there, as

B.C.E.R. Defends Present South
Vancouver Street Lighting System
Gives Cost of Service in Municipality and Makes Comparisons with Other Cities. Total Cost of Lighting for
One Year was $22,074.
"I notice that much has been  said
recently in the press concerning the
cost fi streel lighting in South Vancouver," saiel  Mr. C. Rummel, manager of the  Light &  Power Dept. of
[ the li. C. Electric to a representative
of the "Chinook" yesterday.   "In view
of the  mention  which    has    already
I been made on the subject I think ii
I would possibly be  to the public advantage  ii  a  straight   statement   was
j made  concerning   the  exact   cost   of
I-treet lighting in the municipality.
"The   rale   charged   Soulh   Vancouver by ilu-  I!   C.  Electric for Btreel
j light- i- 12c per night feir the lirst 511
lights;  lie per night for the  second
'.ill lights  and   10c  per  night  for  all
j .ever  100 lamps, this rate being based
on the lamps being in operation until
1 a.m. For the f'eiir winter months
of the year, howi ver, it has been i us-
tomary in South Vancouver to keep
the .-treet liyhts in operation all night
and for this additional service a small
extra charge is made. In passing, I
might say that the rale for st
lighting in South Vancouver ia identically the same as the rate charged
by this Company for similar service
in Point Grey, Burnaby and North
"Going over the Company'.- books
jl find that the total cost of streel
J lighting in South Vancouver freun
I September 30, 1912, to September 30,
[1913, is $22,074,211, this total including
the extra cost of operating the street
lights for the four winter months
throughout thc entire night. Taking
the number of lamps in operation
during each month the cost of each
lamp lor the period is $3.49 per month.
Computing this monthly rental on
i yearly basis it means that South
Vancouver is paying $42.50 per lamp
per year. This is, of course, .-.lightly
higher than the rate which is charged
in Vancouver, this condition existing
because of the fact that the South
Vancouver street lighting system
covers many districts not yet fully
developed and our distribution line
must be more extensive per lamp in
South Vancouver than in the city to
give  the same  public  service.
"It   would  probably  be  interesting
for  tiny  of  your   readers   who   may
think   lhe   cost   of   street   lighting  in
S.etith Vancouver to be high, to com
par.    the   rate   charged   by   the   li.   C
Electric in that district with the rate
which   is   charged   by   the   Winnipeg
municipal  plant  for  Winnipeg  street
lighting, the lamps used in the com-
paris m bi ing the -ante-    l in  such a
comparison,   with   Souih   Vancouvei
paying  the  B   C.  Electric $42 50 per
iamp per year, it will be found that
this figure is $5.50 less per lamp pel
year than is charged  for thi   VVinni-

The following is thc full text of the
speech of Councillor Wilbers at the
Vancouver Progress Club on "South
Vancouver Day" :
Seeuth Vancouver has before it many
difficult problems, and there are many
opinions as to how those problems
���nould be met. These differences of
"I'mi'in are largely the result of the
Cl|5ni.ipolitan character of the population. Different men have brought
heiin their different home lands nat-
l��nal   ideas   and   national   prejudices.
' is difficult for them to grip���at
Once���the fact that they arc in new
'"rrenindings���where many of the
conditions of life are in their elemen-
'">   stages, and where  there  cannot
e an application of methods which
would be effective in an older and
m"rc settled community.
'"  South Vancouver we suffer   (as
new communities suffer), because
'he early pioneers lacked (and I do
'"' blame them for lacking) the prophetic vision to see that the muni-
r|Paliiv would grow with marvellous
rapidity. Only a weaver of fairy
* "rics could imagine that in a few
srmrt years South Vancouver would
each its present wonderful development.
"ad those who  had the  power in
tlle early days, had also that gift of
looking forward, franchises given
would have been more restricted, and
would have been for shorter periods,
and framed more in the interests of
the       community. Arrangements
would have been made whereby light,
heat, power and transit owned by thc
people could have been brought within the region of practical politics.
Even now there are many who regard such schemes as practical, but
admit they will be difficult and costly.
-My personal opinion is. that they are
practical and that the difficulties can
bc surmounted, and that the benefits
will   far outweigh   the  costs.
There is ��� throughout South Vancouver a Very solid opinion that the
municipality (or thc city that it may
become) should own not only its own
water supply (as it does) but also
the municipal gas plant, electric
power and light plant, a telephone
system, and at some date, near or
distant, its own means of locomotion and transit. From time to time,
we have had complaints (more or
less justifies) as io charges made by
existing corporations, faults in the
system and other grievances. A section of the people (and a very large
section), hear accounts of cheaper,
and better light,  heat, and power in
municipalities owning their own utilities, and thc result is a very natural
feeling of envy. "If others can enjoy these privileges, why not we?"
That is a very natural question, and
to that question comes the reply of
experts: "Vein can. yeeu should���
you must." These ambitions can
eenly be realized by very carefully
noting the experiences of other place-,
by hastening slowly on sure ground,
seeking the very best advice (thc
best will be the cheapest) and, acting in a spirit of civic ambition
which shall seek above everything
else thc good of Seiuth Vancouver as
a whole. X'ei good for any section,
no good for any interests, corporation or individuals at thc cost of the
welfare of the community. I am reluctant to endeavor to forecast whal
the organization will be which shall
ultimately give thc people of South
Vancouver their own municipally
owned, and municipally managed
public  utilities:
I will only say that in my opinion,
the arrangements must be firm as regards principle, but elastic as regards organization, for organization
must change with the changing conditions of industries. I will illustrate
my meaning by saying that weapons
of war are constantly altering, but
thc priciples of courage and patriotism remain the same. So, although,
changes may come even in thc form
nf municipal government, and in the
scope and duties of the governing
body, yet this must ever have courage   to   deal   with   thc   difficulty   and
the efvfe patriotism to work i. >v the
common good. Seeme people seem
to think that this plea for municipally levelled public utilities is new. but
as hetig agee as 1S7.S. a great English
writer had articles in the press of
that day. predicting that municipalities would own and control utilities
such   as  we arc discussing  today.
It is not here, the time or place
for me to go into details of civic
schemes. They must be considered
iii all their minute details. I only
desire here to claim for South Vancouver that wc are alive to the progressive spirit of the times. W'e are
not going to ignore the less ins
taught us by cities which have ac-
cpiired public utilities anil worked
them with profit and convenience. If
we acquire sites for industries on
terms which appear advantageous, it
is because wc are taking from the
past some direction for lhe future.
South Vancouver must encourage industries which will give a promise of
pcrmancy of employment and give
ps a settled instead of a nomadic
population. I for one, will assent to
po scheme hastily rushed. I advocate
the municipality being educated and
consulted, and I resent that wild, irresponsible criticism which appears
only eager io seize on faults and errors and gives no credit for cither
good done eir good attempted. I
claim that South Vancouver has both
attempted and accomplished much
good. W'e have earned. mit repose,
for  we  believe  'hat   the  municipality
(Continued  on  Page 10)
The fact that Hritish Columbia
must get people on to ihe land was
never meere forcibly brought home
than it was last Friday evening when
at a Special meeting of the South
Vancouver lie ard of Trade Mr. Ot-
way Wilkie. secretary of the Fraser
Valley Development League, and other speakers addressed that body on
the purposes of the organization. Tlle
meeting was called as a special one
to hear what thc league had accomplished and to arrive at a decision as
to whether or not South Vancouver
Would, with the other municipalities
in the district, continue to support
thc league. The matter was referred to tbe finance ceimmittee with instructions to repeirt at the next regular meeting of thc board.
In setting forth the objects of the
league. Mr. W'ilkic gave a very good
account of whal had been done in
thc last few- months and what the
league wanted to do in the future.
He stated that though there were
700 acres of land per capita in the
province, yet every year over $25,-
000,000 worth nf produce and products indirectly from thc farms, was
imported. He cited that in Scotland
and   Irelat.d,   where   there  was    less
than three acres per capita, thi people raised enough for iheir own use
and s mic if export He stated that
he had been a resilient of the district
for 35 years, and had the proper support been forthcoming from the gi v-
eminent, there would not be any
need of importing millions of dollars
worth   of  products  each  year.
It was the plan of thc league. Mr.
Wilkie stated, to have thc matter of
government aid in land clearing
brought hefore thc legislature at the
corainp session, and he felt that the
matter should have thc entire support of every board of trade and
municipality tributary to the Fraser
\ alley so as to make thc proper impression on the government. There
are millions of acres in the Fraser
valley, which if properly cultivated
and farmed would raise more than
enough   to   supply   tbe   province.
In the last six months, thc secretary stated, there had been many inquiries at thc league's headquarters,
and in the Progress Club's chambers
in the city, and they had actually been
successful in sending people into the
valley who had invested over $50,-
000. It was not the purpose of the
organization to secure people for this

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?

It was noticed that the Frime Minister vvas absent from his usual place

freely rumored that the suffragettes
had something to dei with his absence
and the secret service ceirps were ordered to investigate; and  report.
Secretary of State Lamond introduced the Incorporation Hill for its
second reading.
Mr. llurgess, Minister eef War, seconded the reading of the bill. Hc
thought it would be a decided boon to
the various municipalities if they were
incorporated. Hc thought it would
he good advertising if nothing else.
(Loud cheers from the government
Mr. Rankin opposed the bill, saying there was no doubt in his mind
it was meant to force South Vancouver to incorporate. It was the only
municipality of sufficient population
to bring it within the scope of the
bill, The people of South Vancouver had never asked for the bill.

He said the elections as at presenl
conducted  were only a  farce.
Mr. Lewis said   the   government
were very illogical in asking that tlle
mayor he elected annually and the
councillors   for  three  years.
Clause   5   tlle   government   wished
to refer to a special commission, It
dealt with the basis of election of
councillors and was one in which tlle
government was prepared t" lake all
sides uf the house into consideration.
It was a smart move on thc government's part and was the best diplomacy yet shown by the liberal party.
It was received with mingled feelings.
Clause 6���"All voters may vote on
the election of major and council."

changed to "councillors" and the Minister of War in a very conciliatory
spirit agreed to accept the correction.

Mr. F. E. Elliott, the South Vancouver representative of the league,

marks by saying, that if the matter
was worth going into it was worth
doing well, and he hoped to sec it

The clause was passed.
Clause 3 was then under discussion:

Clause 8 came under discussion

animated debate of the evening. It
provided for the remuneration of the

members of thc cross-benches could

Mr. Woodworth's argument which
covered a considerable amount of law,
was briefly that thc 29th Act of

covered by the law, and was therefore  ultra  vires.     He  further  argued

homes are their stake in the country and their incentive to help along the prosperity of thc province wherein they have their abiding place.
THE City of Maisonneuve holds, in some respects,
a somewhat analagous position in its connection
with Montreal to that of South Vancouver with regard
to the City of Vancouver. Maisonneuve adjoins Montreal and has a population about the same as South
Vancouver, namely 36,606. Like South Vancouver,
the residents of Maisonneuve are largely of the industrial class.
During the past few years there has been a certain
section of people in Montreal advocating the annexation of Maisonneuve. Asked about a week ago, ''has
Maisonneuve any desire to unite with Montreal?"���
Mayor Michard, of Maisonneuve, replied, "None whatever. The public man who would advocate that policy
in our city would be committing municipal suicide.
Our city is progressing rapidly; we are content." In
quoting these remarks the "Chinook" is not prepared
to endorse the extreme statement of "municipal suicide" in any comparison of South Vancouver with
But these remarks of the Mayor of Maisonneuve
led up to the statement of two points hearing on thc
analogy mentioned. Referring to industries, Mayor
Michaud said: "Wc have great factories and others
are coming in steadily. Industries are the life of a
city, and wc are making their locati'm mir great aim."
In South Vancouver wc have some factories, if not yet
great nor many, and we have like Maisonneuve, the
opportunity of becoming a great industrial centre.
We have in South Vancouver the waterfrontage and
thc sites available for industries that are not now obtainable in the City of Vancouver. It remains for the
Council and the Board of Trade, before it becomes
too late or too expensive, to aim at getting these factories by purchasing sites and by other methods of
inducing industries to locate in South Vancouver.
Both .Maisonneuve and Xew Westminster arc not*
able examples of the success of persistent efforts in
this direction.
Thc other point in tlie analogy referred to was that
as Montreal had an enormous amount of work on its
hands now���"enough to keep it busy for a long time,"
it was not in a position at present to annex Maisonneuve. It would appear, according to Mayor Baxter, that the City of Vancouver is in a very similar
position as regards the annexation of South Vancouver, In any case, while the early incorporation of
South Vancouver as a city may be desirable, it need
not necessarily preclude its future annexation to the
City of Vancouver.
Will-',N a frenchman, the author of "John Bull
and his island," called England "a country of
homes" he touched a far truer chord <>f comprehension than did Napoleon when he summed her Up a-.
"a nation of shopkeepers." They wen both right,
but with the difference that the shops are only a means
towards an end���the home. For to the Anglo-Saxon
race, whether in the Hritish Isles. Canada or the Other
dominions across the seas, thc highest ideals of earthly happiness centre In home. It is homes which have
inspired the greatest thoughts and deeds, and it is
homes whieh are the refuge and harbor in life, and
yet the simplest words in English song suffice to give
child or sage the truest conception of home.
A man may reside in an apartment house, an hotel
or boarding house, but they are not homes in the sense
that a man's own castle, own house or own shack is
to the dwellers therein. There is not the same feeling of possession, of independence and liberty. The
man who rents a house, however comfortable and well
equipped, cannot by the nature of the contract, feel
it to be so completely home as when he owns it himself.
Canada is happily a country of homes. The people
who come to British Columbia arc mainly home seek
ers. There are many immigrants, like the Chinese
Japanese, Italians and others who stay only long
enough in the Dominion to make a competence with
which to return to their own country. They supply
their quotum of labor in building up the country but
the bulk of their earnings does not remain here. They
are birds of passage who build a temporary nest here
and then migrate to their own native land.
But the people who labor here with brain or brawn,
whether on farm, in store, office or factory, and wkto
out of their competence build or own their homes
are the people that this province requires.    Their
Till*.  South Vancouver  Board of Trade has rendered good service to the municipality in the
pasl and much will be expected of it in promoting its
future development,   Probably also, the members of
the board will he glad to receive all the help they can
from people interested in the welfare of the locality.
This word "locality" appears to have recently given
rise to some doubt or misunderstanding as t< > its pre
cise meaning.    It seems that a clause in the charter
of the Board of Trade slates that "all persons not
dwelling within the locality arc debarred  from join-;
ing," or words to that effect.    The point is that sev-!
eral gentlemen not living in the municipality, but who
are interested, or who arc property owners therein,
have expressed a tlesire to become members of the
Tlie secretary of the Main Street Improvement Association has therefore written to the Board of Trade-
secretary recently, enquiring whether the gentlemen
referred to are eligible for membership of the board.
In reply, thc secretary of the Board of Trade pointed
out that its charter was granted by an Act of the Dominion government, and that the board has no jurisdiction in altering any of its bylaws. It was further
stated that the indefinite use of the word "locality"
left it open to question.
It appears to us that if the word "locality" is not
expressly stated to imply "within the municipality,"
that any person living in the City of Vancouver may
be considered to come within the meaning of the word.
In any case it should surely be within thc province of
the Board of Trade to stretch the application of tbe
clause to that extent.
Considering, also, that a property owner in South
Vancouver, although living without thc confines of
the municipality, is eligible as a member of the Council, it does not appear to be necessary for tlie Board
of Trade to strain at so fine a point as the precise significance of this word "locality." It seems only a
matter of justice that such ownership of property in
the municipality by residents in Vancouver should
carry with it the option of Board of Trade membership. The more members with these qualifications the
board can get thc better probably for the municipality.
AN event that marked the awakened interest in the
political activities of the district was the formal opemng on Friday of tlie headquarters of the
South Vancouver Liberal Club. It was a great and
unqualified success. An excellent smoking concert
had been arranged, and a large gathering greeted
with enthusiasm the optimistic references by thc various speakers to the prospects of the Liberal Party.
The importance of thc establishment of a Liberal
Club in this rapidly growing municipality was evidenced by the presence of Mr. M. A. McDonald, president of the Provincial Liberals, Mr. S. S. Taylor antl
a. number of other Liberals well and prominently
known throughout Greater Vancouver and the province.
The new Liberal Club now fills a want that has heen
felt and expressed in no uncertain way for some considerable time by a large proportion of the ratepayers
nf South Vancouver. Strong and efficient organization, as well as the effective exposition of Liberal principles in this district has hitherto been lacking. These
deficiencies, it may be confidently expected] the new
Liberal club will do much iu remedying, anil it deserves the whole-hearted support of the South Vancouver residents who are in sympathy with its legitimate aims.
Will 1.1'". London, as the financial metropolis of the
world, will probably remain lor many years

mi satisfactory terms. Recently the City of Vancouver had no difficulty in selling a not inconsiderable
amount of bonds to residents in thc city.
Another instance concerns Burnaby, Reeve McGregor having announced early this week that a loan
of $1,2:0,000 was being negotiated in the States. It
was -tated last week tbat London financiers had an
option on this amount so that it appears as if better
terms were being offered in thc States.
It was further stated by Reeve McGregor that the
llurnaby Council had received no less than four offers from financial sources in the United States, a
healthy and encouraging sign of renewed confidence
in Canadian issues in general and in those of British
Columbia in particular.

I Fill Reapers Cost More?
New York Sun
The farmers must await with suspicion, not to say
alarm, the issue of the Government suit against thc
International Harvester "trust."    If a dissolution be
decreed, will the people benefit as notably as they did
by the dissolution of the Standard Oil "monopoly.'
Will the price of reapers and other tools of the farmer's trade be screwed up as the price of oil was? The
downtrodden farmer still remembers with bitterness
that gasoline went up from 11 to 19 cents a gallon
as the immediate result of thc oil dissolution. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1913

We had an  exceptional    week    oi
il ting iipeni  the  li iw 11 coast, the'
little hunchback, Jean le Bonu and I,
anel being eii n mind i" try "iir link
Mill further, we had run back tee
Ante l.e- Ven for food and ammunition. Now, after a buay li--itr in ihe
quaint Louisiana village, we had returned to mir boat, myself laden with
tmokelen shells, Le Boisu staggcr-
I ing   beneath   his   iiie.vil.ible   sack   of
���upptiei, Alio there peeped from his
pocket a small package carefully
wrapped in white paper, at which tbe
I little  man  glance-el   occasionally  with
j an air 'if quiet pride-.
"It is but a gilt���a little- gift, ni'-
sicii," -aiil he in reply tei my inquiring gaze.
"It geii-s up the Bayou Vermillion
in charge of my friend Calsan. Also
then- is in connection with ihis gift
a story. It deals with a search for
treasure, and, unlike thc uther ones
tbat I have told ymi, its ending is a
pleasant one. Perhaps you would
like to hear it while we wait for Val-
san   and   the   tide."
And this i:. Jean I.e Bossu's itory
j..f the gill.
It began several winters ago, with
11lie last illness e.f my friend, old Al-
eide. This Abide was a clever trapper, win. surprised his companions
each year with the number of his otter skins. Seeing that all was over
with him, he sent for inc.
"Bossu," said he, when I stood at
|his bedside, "1 have set my last trap.
' and it is my wish that you slinuld
succeed me. T.his season go up the
Bayou Vermillion until, upon the left
bank, you lind a stream guarded by
a blasted cypress. Hack of that cypress is a marsh, and in that marsh
arc the otter. Wmk in secret and
your success will be mine. If known,
the spot will be barren in a month."
Thus speeke old Alcide, and, once
he was in the ground, 1 lost little
time in carrying out his instructions.
Otter, as ynu know, bring many
times the price eif other skins, anel
in less than three days my traps and
boat were in readiness. Then, as
such a venture is ever better with
four hands than tu... I looked about
fnr a partner.
In  the  end   1   chi se   Paul  Renaud,
Then  I  thi ughl  m  thi   itnuke that

Bending   t"   my   paddle,   I   passed
for a time between low, thickly w I-

thinning of tin- tree-, there came into
sight my g'.al. li was a farm, a
broad, generous farm that hail been
snatched fre.ni the very heart of the
forest. Upon two sides iln unbroken
line eef trees frowned down upon the
level acres, and in the rear the fields
stretched away t'. a far elistant line
of prairie. In front was a little landing, ending in a grassy path that  led
back tu tlie low, grey farmhouse
amid its grove nf oaks.
This much I saw from the edge
of the forest, and then, as I came
closer, my eye was caught by a figure upon tlie landing.   It was that of
a girl, and at my approach she withdrew the line with which she had I
been fishing ami came forward tee

"What is tlle matter, m'sieur?" she

"Badly, mademoiselle," I replied.

"I will call my father," sai.l -he.

She was back in a moment, and

all was dune and there was naught
left save to wait for the physician,
he took me out upon his wide front
gallery, bearing glasses and a bottle

' "Come." said he. "W will drink

and visitors are always welcome.

I explained that, having come from
even a more lonesome spot, I had
no news, although, as I - ion found
e.iit, this mattered not at all. True.
M'sieur Antoine wished fe.r talk, but
only for talk of his own! i Ince starl

in In- (amilj since the original Sps i

com and cotton; of the positions

the parish, In another it wouhl have
savoured of boasting With him it
seemed rather thc outburst of a great
nth acn ss the' camp lire' than a
growling   elder,   however   expert.
We left nest elay. and making the
Bayou Vermillion, picked up the cypress at dusk. With the lirst light
the following morning we entered the
stream, and, having found the marsh
a mile back frmn the bank, prepared
for the business of the expedition.
I lur fir
ful. W'e caught some otter ami many
muskrats, and nf feathered game there
wa- more than an abundance. Also
we were ni t disturbed, since our
marsh, though but a shorl disl ine
frmn the- bayou, was mosl carefully
hidden. It lay in a little hollow. ..r
depression, where the stream spread
out inin a bog, and upon three ^licit was eh sed in by a dense growth
of forest.
It was a spot to delight tlie heart
of i trapper, yet there was about it
none of that feeling of desolation
which one experiences in ihe wild.
Always, but a mile away, there was
the busy life 'if the bayou, and often,
when looking upstream. I had caught
a grey drift of smoke above the line
eef the forest. That it was not the
wind-driven clouds of a camp fn.
was  evident.    Its    quiet    steadiness

As  im-  my  companion, he proved
all and even more than I had hoped
for. Quiet, industrious, quick I" take
advantage of each new lesson taiighi ; gener'.i
by the marsh, he was a very king ol
partners. Always there was the contented smile, the willing hand, the
cheery voice across the fire, Thus
we wenl on for many pleasant elays
until Nature sought her usual payment of disaster.
It was a trap that caused lhe mis-
ehief���a trap set the year before and
forgotten by old Alcide. Finding a
long-hidden and promising runway.
Renaud prepared his stake. and
reached into the grass to place it.
Then there came a click, a snap, and
the hand came back with the iron
jaws  bitten   deep   into  the  wrist.
Xow, the injury itself was but one
,ef the usual accidents nf our business.
The trap was light. I easily removed
it. and. after he had bathed his
wound with liniment. Renaud thought
in. more of the matter. Next morning, however, the wrist was badly inflamed, and by night the arm had
swollen to such a size that Renaud
was unable to sleep. By the following morning the trouble had declared itself, and be. raved and fought
in delirium of fever. That some pens-
on iif rust or long-decayed bait had
entered his blood was only too apparent. That T must act at once if
I  would save him was more apparent
still. .    , .
It was bard to tie him, yet it was
the only way, and so, having bound
him securely, 1 placed him in our
pirogue and pushed off from our
camp. At thc bayou I paused for a
moment that 1 might decide my
course. To go downstream and
around the bay to Ause Le Vert was
long, but there was the certainty of
a doctor at the end. Up-stream lay
the city of Abbeville, but that was
still farther. What lay in between

agreed.    "The   trouble   is   that  it   is

And thus he went nn. advancing
new theories, planning fresh searches,
until thc physician arrived.
With the physician's report 1

my acting quickly, 1 hail brought

Winter Pillows
Xo longer arc women in search
of cool designs in pillows for tlie
porch. It is the cozy, warni-appear-
mg pillows for the window seat and
inglcnook that now concern feminine heads and workbags, says the
Philadelphia North American. The
colors must bc warm, either in the
background or the embroidery.
There are, of course, thc conventional designs, which can be worked
in any color that one prefers and so
it is that women concern themselves
more with a choice of floral designs.
Shall the list be headed with red
roses? Surely nothing could be warmer, but they arc beautiful only when
used with discretion, like all Haunting decorations. Poppies are appropriately used on winter pillows. Poin-
settias arc easily worked and are effective. Then there are holly and
mountain ash. Fuschias, too, make
a graceful decoration. Instead of having the pillows covered with pale
tans and greens, as were the summer
pillows, select rich warm browns, with
only an occasional green one among
them. Yellow sunflowers on dark
brown are warm ami bright. Nasturtiums will give one a chalice to work
in  warm  yellow and  orange.
Cut work is effectively used in pillows. A dark brown pillow top ornamented with cut weirk is very beautiful when orange silk is placed under
the cut-out de'sign.

Wedding Ring Customs
Although llie ciisteun nf being married with a ring is an ancient one it
is by no means compulsory. The
Quakers ami Swiss Protestants never
use rings at their marriage ceremonies.
In Germany and some other countries it is customary for bride and
bridegroom   tn    exchange    wedding
rings, and tlie same practice is occasionally carried eeut by Anglo-Saxons.
In Greece the ceremony of betrothal
is as important as that of marriage
and is conducted by a priest. Two
rings are used nn the former occasion, one being eef silver and the
other of gold. Both are consecrated
on the altar, after which the gold
ring is placed upon the man's linger
and the silver one upon thc woman's.
But after the wedding service the
best man reverses them.
In St. Kilda wedding rings are
made  of worsted.
Most of the women of the Upper
Bayanzl, on the Congo, wear wedding rings of brass around their
necks. Tho wealthier the husband
the heavier is the wife's ring, and in
some cases it weighs as much as
twenty-live   or   thirty   pounds.
Hebrews in the past used some of
the most wonderful wedding rings
ever made, but plain rings are now
generally worn by the married women of that race. According to their
law it is necessary that the ring be
of a certain value, and therefore it
has to bc examined and valued by the
rabbi anil other officers of the synagogue. On no account may it hc a
gift  or obtained on credit.

About the Tango
The man who claims the distinction of having introduced the Turkey
Trot into America is in Toronto���
ien his way back to New York. Hc
is Mr. Fred Le Croix, famous dancing teacher and actor.
Mr. Le Croix says that Canadians
arc behind the times when it comes
to dancing, but seems to think there
is hope of their further education
along the line, since thc various forms
of the Tango, one-step and so forth
arc  gradually  becoming popular.
"The people of Canada have had
(he impression that these dances were
vulgar." ihi- authority continued, "but
allow   mc   to   say   that   nothing   could
be more beautiful than the Tango if
properly danced. Indeed, the <>l��l-
time waltz lee.ek- bid unless danced
"But,   as   taught   leeelay   by   leading
dancing teachers, the Tango is quite
too difficult and there is a reason
for this. I have never in my life'
seen a dancing floor Sufficiently large1
tee allow tWO COUpleS tei dance lhe
Tangii. in snnie ei( its forms. Another ihing iee take intei consideration is that there arc so many forms
nf Ihe Tango taught that when a
gentleman asks a lady to dance the
lirsl question is necessarily. "Whal
form nf TangO dn ynu dance?" and
the chances arc ninety-nine In a
hundred that the two do not dance
lh'- same form.
"The Tango as taught today may
be alrighl iu llie stage, but in a
crowded hall���excuse me!" Mr. I.e
Croix went mi. But I know of some
feirms of Tango not being taught
I which might well bc danced on a
I floor. In an article recently published in  a Toronto  paper  it  was  stated
j thai  dipping will  oc abandoned.    I
| cannot   say   that   1   agree   witli   the
writer,   feir   I   think  there  is  nothing
] more   beautiful   than     senile     dances
wiih dipping, if properly danced, and
from my stage experience 1 know
that people have enjoyed the dipping
feirm nf dance very much and 1 will
never  cut  it  nut.
"If thc Tangn is not properly
danced it is because the majority of
people prefer the other way, and not
because it cannol bc danced properly."

Reform of Marriage Laws
A new marriage bill, placing Women on an equality witn men, has
been prepared by tne United Parliamentary Committees of Sweden, .Norway, and Denmark, and will uc introduced in each oi the three Parliaments. Tlie consent ot buth parents

Lamp Bowls
When tempted to purchase an attractive and artistic pottery jar, in
which to set thc tout or tank of a
lamp, make thoroughly certain that
the inside, at least, is well glazed.
If this be impracticable, thc inside of
the bowl should be given several
coats of heavy varnish or other filler,
belore the lamp is set in it and used.
.No amount ot care will prevent the
head of a lighted lamp from drawing
up oil and letting it "creep" on the
outer surface of the font; and very
little seepage eif kerosene, througii
one's charming unglozed pottery jar,
will ruin it entirely, so far as beauty
is concerned.
Major Hart-McHarg Seeks Support
ot South Vancouver Boaro of
Trade in Saving Daylight for the
People of Britisn Columbia
_ Major Hart-McHarg in seeking the
South Vancouver Hoard of Trade's
cndorsalion of the Daylight Saving
Hill at last Friday's meeting, gave
se.inc interesting information as to
the countries which favor the proposal.
Major Mcllarg staled that the subject had been a live one feir many
years in England but had never crystallised into concrete form. Throughout the- British Umpire the question
had been discussed and considered
and in Seeuth Africa a law had bean
enacted putting ihe clucks back half
an hour. lie stated that there was
really 110 Correct time and our stand-
aid lime was unly correct at the 121)
meridian where it was established.
West ami Bast of that line it was
eiiher ahead or behind according tei
the distance from the meridian centre. There arc as many hours of daylight before as after 12 noon, but our
habits are such lhat we do not use it
all to advantage as under the present
system we sleep away three of thc
finest daylight hours in the summer
months with the result that after
noon our hours of daylight arc curtailed. Ile enumerated the various
influential bodies in Great Britain and
in either parts of thc Empire which
had supported thc proposed change.
The Canadian Federal Bill had been
favorably reported upon as also thc
proposed bills of Australia and New-
Zealand. He thought it best, however, to have a hill passed by British
Columbia specifically for the Province, eiwing to thc fact that our time
is changed at Field, thc eastern border of the Province, and that there
were no other changes as is necessary in some of thc other provinces.
The proposed change was not as
drastic as some thought and thc only
apparent effect would be that an extra hour of daylight per day would
bc secured which would mean in a
year the saving of 100 hours or 21
holidays  of 9  hours each.
Major Hart-McHarg said that the
British House of Commons had passed the measure by a majority of sixty-three, but on its being referred In
a committee it had been rejected hy
a majority of one. The measure was
beneficial  to  health  and  morals.
It was necessary, however, that the
adoption should he througii legislation, which would approve of thc
standard time being advanced one
hour from the first Sunday in April
to the third Sunday in October. What
was wanted was to get daylight for
use, instead of sleeping it away in
thc morning.

Two Suits of Clothes, Cigarettes and
Stamps are Bandit's Haul
Some of the stores in Main Street,
South Vancouver were broken into
early Tuesday morning by a bold,
had bandit of the name of John Carter. The burglar was small of stature but dark complexioned and took
desperate chances to secure a couple
of packets of cigarettes from fsaac
Joseph's grocery store on Main St.
In this daring act he was captured
l>y a constable at the point of a re-
v. ilver.
It is supposed that two other bur
glaries discovered about the same
time were committed by thc same
man. From one shop, the British
Dry Goods Store, Main Street, two
suits of clothes had been abstracted,
both of which, the weather being cold,
the alleged burglar appears to have
been wearing when arrested. In the
other case, the Liberal Club headquarters had been entered and 121
cent stamps purloined from the secretary's desk. The stamps were also
feuind on Carter's person, along with
a dangerous looking steel jimmy.

before Magistrate Johnson ou Tuesday morning and remanded until

board  and  acquire    industrial    sites
some  years   back  before  they  began
to  rise   in   value.     Our  neighbors   in
New  Westminster  have shown  what
illis   kind   of   foresight   means   to   the
wage   earner,   they  having    by    this
means acquired a large number of industries   whose   payrolls   now   are   a
great help.    These advantages which
every   district   is   anxious   to   obtain
can  only bc  secured  by  the  exercise
of foresight  and  combined  action  of
ratepayers and representatives. There
is now  to my mind one of thc most
important   questions     before     South
Vancouver that has ever arisen, and
I   am   surprised   to  find  little  or   no
action being taken in the matter, and
that is the question of securing direct
connection and passenger facilities ou
thc   proposed   C.   N.   R..  which   it  is
understood is coming to Burnaby on

to   False   Creek.     South    Vancouver
has  population  sufficient  to  warrant
thc   Provincial   Government  insisting
mi  the  C.  N.  R. coming a little further and  taking in South Vancouver,
more especially as the government is
giving certain assistence tn this railway,   for   which   we   arc   responsible
to   the   extent   of  our   proportion1  of
same.     Wake   up.   South   Vancouver,

Hill will tackle the H. C. Electric
team on their grejumls near Fraser

out and give the home boys a little

Your truly,
November 17, 1913, South Vancouver
To the Editor of the "Chinook" :
Sir,���I am informed that I have
been named in your columns as a
probable candidate for the reeveship
in South Vancouver. In justice to
friends who have thought of supporting me and in fairness also to other
gentlemen who may think of coming
forward 1 wish to say that I am not,
and will not, be a candidate for the
reeveship or any other office in South
Vancouver at this time.
My reasons for declining are so
many and so strong that they will,"]
ur ills and discontents are time, pa-
Ltience, and economy.
\ 1 know that time, patience and
economy are not popular remedies.
i I know, therefore, that the only administration that 1 could stand feer
would not bc  popular.
These are some of my reasons; are
they  not  enough?
Here are others of a personal nature :
1 have no ambition to he in public
I have no aptitude for. and lake nee
pleasure  in  handling  public  business.
I have troubles enough of my own.
I have no time tor endless talking
and jawing.
I have no money to spend in getting elected to a position 1 do not
want. ���
I cannot afford to work for twenty-
live dollars a month and board at
home.     (I   might   have   waived   this
 (Comlnned  from  1'age  1)
is entering on a period of unparalcl-
leel activity, but we have earned immunity from the unwarrantable condemnation with which some irre-
iponsible pee>ple assail us.
It is our aim to secure those public utilities that will prove of immediate and lasting benefit to the community. It is our desire to leave to
posterity an inheritance of assets that
will enable] them justly to recall our
memory with some degree of pride
and respect. In conclusion, I would
say that the people themselves must
be wise in a civic sense. As William
Johnson Fox said, "A wise, a just, a
truthful, a vigorous management will
only exist where there is an honest,
generous, intelligent, faithful and
beneficicnt  population."
