The Canadian who took the humble cheese, educated him. refined him
an.l gave him culture', placing him
among the leaders of the aristocrats
<ef thc dinner table, has come with
much money, much personality and
me.re brains inte. the  Fraser Valley.
Alexander I-'. MacLaren has located
permanently  in  British Columbia.
Macl.aren's ancestors came from
the Neirth eef Scotland. They were
experts at wielding the claymore.
They encouraged intensive fanning
mixrel farming and crop rotations���
atnong their Southern neighbors
Seiute' eif the MacLarcns, according t.e
history, reduced in the old elays "i
the chieftains, tlie number ������! the living.
"The" MacLaren who has struck
the Eraser Valley, believes in the
wielding of a full dinner knife. He
believes in anil participates in the
vulture ni tlie soil, lie has done
more for Ihe fanning industry in eastern Canada than any other une individual And all his life, all his
energies have heen bent upon assisting in reducing the high ceest eif living in the Dominion of Canada
In British Columbia. Mr. MacLaren
wiil engage in the commercial production eef milk, cream and butter.
Hi- large factory has heen opened
nt Clayburn, near Mission���and had
lh. South Vancouver people been
m re alert it might have been loca-
teel within the municipality "ii the
North Ann of tlle Eraser.
The factory is established in the
heart of the fertile Mitsqtti prairie,
.ine! has tributary t" it iu addition
the farm districts at the Sunias prairie
ande Langley, and promises to he a
very important element iu the fostering of the dairying interests of the
province, as the establishment eif this
factory will he feillowcd by others in
the different farming and valley settlements. As the process the milk
undergoes makes it of an imperishable nature, accessibility to market
bat not the vital importance that has
heretofore limited the held in which
successful dairying ceiuld he carried
��� iri in Hritish Columbia.
1000 Gallons a Day Capacity
The plant at Clayburn, the lirst unit
of which has heen completed, has a
capacity of 10.000 pounds of milk, or,
roughly speaking, a thousand gallons
-.i day. When the additional units are
installed the capacity will he live
limes as great. The perfection of the
process is assured by a selection of
the milk used. The souring of milk
is caused by the development of acids
in the liquid, and milk which contains more than a certain small percentage of acid to begin with is utilized for the manufacture of butler
The milk is clarified in a centrifugal
machine, whose speed is so regulated
"that only the foreign matter is removed, the milk and cream not being
separated. It then passes through a
pasteurizing process to prevent possible acid development, and in this
act is heated to the proper tempera-
lure for the next process, that of "ho-
Tiieigenizing," wherein the milk is
forced through capillary tubes and
under a pressure of 3500 pounds to
the inch passed between agate and
bronze surfaces held lightly together.
This treatment pulverizes the globules of cream or butter fat, and is regarded as the chief feature of the
treatment of the milk, making it easier of digestion.
Milk Will Keep Indefinitely
The milk is then cooled and either
Txittled or canned in air-tight recepta
cles and sterilized to destroy absolutely every atom of germ life. In
the bottles the milk can be delivered
lo private users, tind. unopened, will
keep for an indefinite period. For
railways, construction camps, ships
and places where the product cannot
be delivered with the assurance of a
return of the bottles, these containers being expensive, cans are used
similar to those holding the ordinary
food products. For household use.
where the bottles can he returned
day hy day, the glass container is preferred, as the milk is then being delivered under the ordinary dairy conditions, ami the- product is in plain
view t.i the eye of the consumer.
At the plant, recently, tlle treatment
of the milk was fully explained by
Prof. E. 1.. Miller and" Mr. G, J. Jenkins, B.S.A.. wli.e are in charge of thc
operation of the plant. The former
was for six years at the Ontario Government's Agricultural College al
Guelph, tint., where he specialized on
dairy work, and Mr. Jenkins graduated from that institution with the highest possible honors. The factory is
run ou the same principle as a hei--
pital in regard to cleanliness and
measures tei prevent contamination
eef the milk, and is regarded as the
last word in the utilization of modern machinery and methods used in
handling  milk.
Just Plain Milk
Mr. MacLaren, the head of llle
Ceimpany. has heen identified with
dairy products in Canada fnr over
forty years. In connection with his
cheese, he has made his name a
household word all eever the world,
ami Ile now pteiposcd to establish
himself just as firmly in the public
esteem through his milk, for which
he claims ihe unique distinction that
it is. tiiitliwiihstanding iis non-perishable qualities, just plain milk, wilh

President   South   Vancouver Central     Liberal     Executive
Mr.   Eugene     Wyman    Cleveland
comes of a good old line of Canadian
stock  and   was   born   in   1X57  in   the
Annapolis  Valley,   Nova  Scotia.     He
was   educated   in   Nova   Scotia,   becoming a Scientific engineer.    Coming
tei   Brandon  in   1880.    he    remained
there   until   1896.   when   he   returned
east to build an improved system  iff
ISteam  as  applieel   lo   locomotives,  he-
ling located in Xew Vork, Chicago and
Philadelphia  at   different  periods  up
! to ten years ago when  he moved  Ilis
family to Los Angeles.    Though the
I United  Slates   has  its  merits  in   Mr.
Cleveland's eyes, he    decided    some
eight   years  ago  that  the   ..Id   I'ni.en
Jack would  he good  enough  leer him
land so he came neerth to British Columbia, establishing a beautiful  home
in   South  Vancouver  on  the  heights
! overlooking . Collingw ... nl.
Mr. Cleveland was the unanimous
choice for the presidency of the South
Vancouver Central Libera! Executive.
In this office he will he a most valuable executive head. His experience
in politics has been will..' an.l varied,
i lie it was who organized Southern
��� Manitoba for the Liberal cause before
th.' memorable election of '96.
There i-n't a more aggressive Liberal In South Vancouver than Mr.
Cleveland, nor is there a more robust
specimen of manhood. He is six feet
two inches tall, anil weighs 225
pounds. He has at all times been an
exponent of the manly art of self defense. Though there is not a likeli-
hoeeel ..f bringing Mr. Cleveland's physical abilities to bear upon the winning of ibe next election, it may he
said that an impudent Tory in his
hands would have short shrift for the
Cleveland muscles are still like steel.
As an engineer, Mr. Cleveland stood
high iii his profession, tin one occasion the Association of American
Inventors, an organization uneler
which falls the cntreel of tlie' patent
systems of forty-seven countries, pre-
sented Mr. Cleveland with a certi-
ficate of honor and a handsome medul
fe>r having invented, iu competion with
lhe engineers of the world, a portable
locomotive brake- which was a marvel to the weirld of mechanics.
Mr Cleveland is deeply interested
in the company financing and erecting the new Weart lluilding. Hastings Street. Hr is a member of the
Provincial Parks Board, and a former member of the Seeuth Vancouver Sch.ml Hoard, lie has been a
prominent Oddfellow ami Forester.
The Cleveland home at Collingwood

From the Pen of Our Own
Local Correspondent
A reporter of the "Chinook"
called on the Manager of the Collingwood East branch of the Bank
of Vancouver with regard to certain rumors that it was the intention of the Bank to close that
branch and was assured that the
Bank had no intention of closing
the Collingwood Branch. The
Collingwood Branch was the lirst
suburban branch to be established
practically four years ago and thc
very fact of the large patronage
this branch enjoys fully hears out
the above statement. The healthy
aspect today of this thickly settled
district is not only an indication
of the assistance rendered through
this branch, but conclusive evidence of the appreciation of the
community in having a Chartered
bank in their midst.

a good shot. They still kept up the

At this stage Stephen who was playing a geioel game in trying to get in]

the second half. Well on in this period the Saints scored number twu,
which March should have saved and
to make matters worse, R. Suttie
twisted his ankle. After this All
Saints scored their third goal and won
as  above.
For the winners the goalkeeper,
although he got far more work to do
than March, acquitted himself with
credit; he was ably assisted by Gibson at back. The best of the backs
was Btichan and his brother in the
front rank was the best forward. For
the losers March played his worst
game this season; he is to be sympathised with; he seemed to be nervous,
not being accustomed to playing be

of the' halves, The forwards were
playing a goeed combined game until

South Vancouver Water Rates
At Thursday i ight's council n
ing, Councillor Gold accused tl e lati
council of "crooked work" in reducing the water rati- His accusation
wa- made because the estimated revenue from water rales thi- year
sinews a So-called deficit <m January
:.ml February's operating, including
interest . "el sinking fund, of #4r.s_' 1"
Councill ir Colli argued thai tlu- Ial
council ought t" h i'., Increased tin
water rate- t.> make good tha- deficit,
which it i- saiel he i- making the
ground feir an enquiry into past administration "t the water department.
If all Councillor Gold's numerous
accusations igainst the late council
.md officials are a- groundless as hi-
charge oi "crooked work" in reduc- ���
ing the water rates, it is imt surprising that some of his colleagues are
t (-ginning   t"   oppose   him.     Taking
the figures Submitted by the new engineer ���!��� correct, it seems thai the
est of operating Se .nth  Vancouver's
ivater department during January and
February this year was $8.25262, including work deme ial Main Streel in
putting down new mains prior t" paving operations. The estimateel revenue' from water rate- was $12,500,
giving $4247.38 surplus for interest
and -inking fund after paying the
whole cost of distribution. To c mi
filet.��� the inier.si. however, a furth. r
sum of $4732.1') is required. This
amount Councillor Gold argue- should
also he obtained from water consumer- and met from general revenue.
As the representative eef owners of
a considerable amount of unoccupied
property in Seeuth Vancouver, Councillor Gold's argument is excellent;
because if the whole eef the interest
and sinking fund must be paid by
water consumers, it relieves owners
of unoccupied property eif paying any
share eef the cost of establishing a
water works system. But is that fair
to the owners eif occupied property?
Was il "crooked work" for the late
council to ask owners of unoccupied
property to contribute in general revenue towards the cost of establishing a water works system in South
Vancouver? Councillor Gold' says it
was. But would it not be crooked
work  to  relieve  them?
Last year a considerable amount
of money was spent on water mains
and service connections on Kingsway
to avoid the necessity of tearing up
the pavement when the adjoining property is built upon. Is it fair or just
to existing water consumers to expect them to pay the whole of thc
interest and sinking fund for that
work? Councillor Gold says it is
"crooked work" to expect the owners
of unoccupied property to contribute a share of the cost. What have
the working men owners and residents in South Vancouver to say
about it? Do they agree with Councillor   Gold?

Large Shingle Industry Chooses
Site on North Arm of Fraser
Boundary Road Property Bought by Large American Company
Which Will Locate First of a Number of Shingle Mills
It is stated on excellent authority
that at the boundary line between
South Vancouver and Burnaby, fronting upon the North Arm of the Fraser, property has recently been acquired by American interests upon which
will be erected a shingle mill which
will be as large as any at present in
existence in British Columbia, equalling the plant of the Hastings Shingle
Manufacturing  Company.
It is asserted that during thc week
a start will be made upon the foundations of the mill structure and that
thc plant will be in operation before
the summer is over with a heavy payroll of white men, residents of South
Vancouver  and  Burnaby.
So many "immense industries" have
been located and all but started in
the past on the North Arm of the
Fraser and other quarters through
thc medium of the real estate advertisement, that news of the plans of
thc people behind the shingle mill
project was not accepted seriously in
some quarters. It is not unlikely,
heewever, that the recent quiet spell
in real estate operations has had the
effect of bringing a factory site on
the river within the grasp of the
prospective  manufacturers.
That the next few years is likely
le. see a great stir industrially on
[South Vancouver's waterfrontage, and
indeed all the waterfrontage on the
I N'orth Arm of the Fraser is indicated
| from the development along the
shores in the past few mouths.

concern have put in a large mill at
the foeit of Fraser Avenue, on the
Richmond side of the river; the Federal Cedar Mills Limited have bought
a valuable mill property at Campbell
Road Station, and are putting on a
large force of men at the first of
May. Other mill companies have
bought sites along the river.
Changes during the past year in
the American tariff has had a big
influence on the lumber situation of
the Pacific Coast.
Timber berths are becoming very
scarce in Washington and Oregon.
Many of them are being exhausted
from time to time and saw-mill equipment is playing out. This coupled
with the practically free entry of
British Columbia lumber into the
United States is having a depressing
effect upon the lumber interests over
there. The concern about to locate
at Boundary Road is stated to be
financed by lumbermen from Oregon
and Washington. The location of the
mill at that point will likely be the
first step in a genera! migration of
lumber manufacturers from the South.
For manufacturing sites, better
property and cheaper property cannot be procured in British Columbia
than that on the North Arm and
consequently the new interests coming will be quick to realize the manufacturing possibilities of the Fraser
(slope, particularly those lumber interests who will find in British Columbia an almost inexhaustible supply
of  raw  material.

liminary  plans.
At the last meeting of the Ward
One Ratepayers' Association, Point
Grey, it was resolved to request the
North Fraser Harbor Commissioners to appoint one of their number
to attend this meeting to inform the
members upon what was being done
in reference to harbor matters on the
N'orth Arm of the Fraser River, and
as to how D. I,. 472 would benefit
under the work. Mr. R. C. Hodgson,
one of the commissioners, there, attended Monday night, and in introducing the subject said that the questions they had to consider wcre what
benefit Point Grey, as a whole, expected to derive from the scheme,
and what was being done with the
contributions from the municipalities
that the commissioners had asked for.
He explained that the commissioners had appointed engineers to prepare the plans for the harbor but
they had not yet commenced work
owing to thc fact that all the municipalities concerned bad not yet come
forward with their contributions towards the preliminary expenses. Point
Grey, he stated, was the only one
that bad voted the $7,500 towards
carrying out the projects, but tlle
commissioners expected that Richmond, South Vancouver and Burnaby would soon fall into line in this
After going into the history of the
scheme, he said that he thought the
time was not far distant when thc
North Arm of the Fraser River would
be the industrial centre of Greater
Vancouver, and that Vancouver would
depend upon the waterfrontage of thc
North Arm for its industrial sites, cx-
tendin" as it did, from the month of
the river to New Westminster, a distance of about twelve miles. Some
people, hc said, considered that the
North Arm was too far away from
Vancouver, but he declared that was
not the case. All that was required,
he said, was to spend a little money
on dredging to have one of the finest
harbors in America. One great advantage, he declared, was that they
wcre not tied up there by any railway company, the same as Burrard
Inlet  was with  the  C.  P.  R.
Speaking with regard to the location of a grain elevator, he said when
they had their plans perfected, when
tl ey had drydocks there and a railway
controlled by the Harbor Commission, they would get tbe business and
if there was any need for an elevator they could build one, but that
would be at some future date. It was,
however, as well, he said, to bear this
in mind. Some people, he declared,
thought it was not necessary to have
two harbor commissions, one for Vancouver and one for the North Fraser,
because of annexation; but he contended that the municipalities ought
to bend all their energies to their development so that they could say to
Vancouver when the time came, "We
are as good as you."
Mr.   Hodgson   went   on   to  explain
that it was unreasonable to expect
the Dominion government to find the
money to carry out the scheme, before the municipality concerned showed that they were interested in this
development. Thc commissioners
were very anxious to see the work
proceed, he said, and they wished to
have the plans ready to present at the
next session of the House of Commons, otherwise it meant a further
delay of another year.

IT h;ts cost the people of British Columbia $100,000 to secure through tlie medium uf a

governmental problems, especially that of finance, thai we have not felt that it came
within tin- scope of our commission."
Thau the administering ol" the public 1 mds of the Province there is no more important question before the people of liritish Columbia today. It is remarkable therefore that this Royal Commission on Agriculture should so lightly skip over the salient
feature of its work.
Smiie thirty pages are taken up by the commissioners in submitting their recommendations to tbe government. There is nol in the entire report one jot or one tittle
of information on the subject of agriculture that could not he gleaned from the back
pages pf such agricultural journals as the "Farmers' Advocate."
Xo space whatsoever is given to the expensive trip to "Vourup" of Chairman 1 lax-
ward, and nothing is said of the pilgrimages of the other agricultural experts to the
four corners of the earth. True, there is a paragraph thanking all the gentlemen with
whom the commissioners met in the course of their journeyings for the hospitality
Who wouldn't show hospitality to a liritish Columbia Royal Commissioner with
both pockets full of Government expense money and credit notes?
It is not the cost of the commission alone which will be a hardship upon the people;
hut it is the fact that there is now indefinitely postponed any attempt at the solution of
the problem of the feeding of the hungry of British Columbia.
It is recommended in the report, for instance, that the Department of Agriculture
publish a monthly farm magazine and defray its cost by soliciting advertisements for
it from the agricultural implement manufacturers; it is recommended that co-operation
among the farmers be encouraged; that more intensive tilling of the soil be taken in
hand; that rotations of crops should be encouraged, and greater quantities of fertilizer
With the farming situation as it is today in the Province a farm magazine could
expect but a mighty skint]) circulation. And what will be profited from intensive tilling,
co-operation, rotation of crops and the generous use of fertiliser if all the good farm
lands in the country are held by Chicago real estate men, Winnipeg speculators, Dukes
from the Old Country, Mackenzie and Mann, and the hordes of camp-followers of the
"Conservative" party���held with the prospect that the empty stomachs of the people
will some day make these huge untenanted, uncultivated estates  enormously valuable.
Nowhere in this report i.s there a suggestion that the legitimate settler in British
Columbia be subsidized by the Government or that his bonds for the raising of nionev
to clear his lands be guaranteed by the Government as is the practice in dealing with
British Columbia railroad promoters; nowhere in the report is there a recommendation
that the Government grant some assistance to the dairyman, or to the    orchardist.
One hundred years ago the forebears of the best Scotch and English Canadians in
the Dominion were driven from the homes of their fathers by a greedy and cruel landlordism. They came across the Atlantic to Nova Scotia and Ontario and hewed for
themselves homes in the wilderness, suffering great hardships, but enjoying liberty. The
century has rolled by and the grandchildren of these heroic pioneers���great numbers
of them���have migrated to British Columbia to conquer a new wilderness. It is not
good boosting to say it, but these Canadians of the second and third generations face
here in British Columbia almost the same conditions that drove their forebears out of
Great Britain.
The Royal Commission on Agriculture investigates the land question, and finds no
great wrongs to correct and so report to their chief at the Provincial Capital.
The people of British Columbia are today suffering from a decade of rule by a body
of men styled the Provincial Government which has been playing fast and loose with
the money of the people and the heritage of the people. The greatest of the manv
wrongs which have been perpetrated is the spoliation of thc Crown Lands of British
Columbia. Then as a result of the falling down of the Agricultural Commission, the
people of British Columbia again have to pay dearly. The work of the commission was
one which might have been productive of great common good. Upon the findings of
Chairman Hayward and his colleagues splendid legislation which would have clinched
the prosperity of British Columbia for all time might have heen based.
THE working man, the fanner, the manufacturer,
the business man, the churches and benevolent
cicii-ties are all forced to pay taxes in liritish Coltun-
bia. Even the smallest business man. because lie has
the energy to go into business, must pay tribute to
tbe Provincial Treasury in tbe way of a special bttsi
ness tax,
Mackenzie and Mann pay no ta.v.-s. Thii concern
has a special preference shown it in this regard. There
is a case about to come before tbe courts, however,
tthen an effort will be made to break this tradition
governing   Messrs.   Mackenzie  and   Mann   in   llrilisb
Columbia.   This case arises in Burnaby.
Two years ago agents of Mackenzie and Mann
bought up large tracts of land in I). I.. 10.? and 167.
Since the land was purchased, no taxes have been
paid into the Municipal coffers at Edmonds.
Messrs. Mackenzie and Mann bold tbat as tbe property in question was purchased by them i" be used as
freight yards for tbe Canadian Northern Railway
tbat it is covered by tlle agreement between tbe Cana-
ian Northern Pacific Railway and the Provincial
Government which states that ab property of the company will be exempt from taxation.
This Burnaby land which fronts mi tbe Xorth
Arm of tbe Fraser Kiver is at present in its wild
state. Adjoining; it. in the City of Xew Westminster,
is also Mackenzie and Mann property in its primeval
condition, property to be used some day for railway
Burnaby's solicitors advise tbat Mackenzie and
Mann must pay taxes on their property, freight yards
or no freight yards. It is likely tbat tbe llurnaby
council will light the matter and will make an effort
to accomplish something that the Federal Parliament
has been unable to do���bring Mackenzie and Mann to

IF the health of the community i.s to be given due
consideration it is possible that when the Council can get around to the subject changes will be
made in tbe present system of collecting and disposing of garbage in the Municipality.
The dump heap is a relic of bygone days, yet this
system is tolerated in .South Vancouver. These dump
heaps make comfortable rat communities and afford
an ample opportunity for the spreading of germs.
Animals die and are thrown upon the civic dump heap.
The other day the remains of an infant were found
on one of these dumps, It had been partially destroyed bv dogs.
Xothwithstanding, the health of the community was
never     better    than     it     is    today. There     is
but one case of contagious disease at thc present moment according to ths Medical.Inspector, Dr. Murphy.
In other communities the incinerator system for the

IT is hard to believe that there are men in the City
of Vancouver and others in the Municipality of
South Vancouver so mighty narrow as to endeavor
to create bad feeling between the city and municipality.
First some statesman on the City Council wants
South Vancouver men kept off all city work.
Here's an item from a Vancouver paper:
"About 120 Hastings Townsite children, it is reported, are attending South Vancouver schools. Because of the decision of Vancouver City Council not
to employ South Vancouver residents it is stated that
the School Hoard bas intimated that they will no longer educate Vancouver children at South Vancouver's
expense. Hastings Townsite residents are, therefore,
asking \'ancouver School Board to provide school
accommodation in the southeast corner of the town-
site. A committee has lieen appointed to investigate."
In the words of thc psalmist of old time���
"heboid  how good a thing it is and how becoming
For men to be as brothers are, in unity to dwell."
THE CITY P.EAUTIFL'L germ has struck the
South Vancouver council. The spacious grounds adjoining the Municipal Hall are being plowed and bar-
rowed and it is the plan of the parks committee, presided over by the way by Councillor Twiddy. to plant
trees, shrubs, rose bushes and all manner of flowers.
'Ihis i.s a step in the right direction and when the work
has been completed it is to be hoped that the transformation will be an incentive to all householders in South
Vancouver to direct more attention to beautifying
their premises.

that the Municipality will not supply the unemployed

Dou You Want to Know
More About the
Undertaking Business?
The Mt. Pleasant Undertaking Co. are rendering a service that is unsurpassed by any Undertaker. Everyone that is connected with the
firm is a qualified Funeral Director and Em-
balmer, who has spent years to perfect himself
in this line of work. We are located at 8th Ave.
and Main St., Tel. Fair. 189, and our parlors
are open day and night.
We were the first and only firm to advertise
a complete funeral for $55.00, including burial
case, hearse, family carriage, use of chapel, removal charges, and all personal services and tell
you just what we furnish, naming every item.
In doing this, our object was not to offer offence,
but we think the public should have some idea
as to what a respectable funeral can be supplied
for. There is no mystery about our business, as
all of our goods are marked in plain figures and
are the same price to all.
We know that our competitors do not approve
of our business methods, but the public do, as
our business is increasing every month. Now,
we live up to our advertisement to the letter. We
always have the goods in stock that we advertise,
and not one of our patrons has ever heard us
say that we were out of the goods we advertise.
We carry as large a stock of high grade caskets
as will be found in the city, and our prices are
lower than can be obtained from any other Undertaker. Thc volume of business that we are
doing is responsible for our moderate charges.
We have a large and well furnished Chapel,
for which we make no charge, and private reception rooms; in fact, a strictly modern building that was built especially for this business.
Onr surroundings are quiet and dignified, and
we are in a position to supply the wants of anyone, regardless of their position in life. We have
told you of our business methods in a straightforward manner, and we conduct our business
in the same way. Yours for perfect funeral

Mr. Parker Williams Condemns
Financing of C.N.R. at South Hill
Refers   to   Acquisition   by   Mackenzie   &  Mann   of  Duntmu'r
Collieries and Says Government is One Horse Affair
"Only .ill explosion eer a strike al
the   Vancouver   Island   miners   could
rescue the Mackensie & Mann interests   from  disaster   on   the   London
money market���and the strike eame."
said Parker Williams. M.P.P. ie.r
Newcastle,   ill    Fraser   Hall   recently.
"The strike was welcomed. The!
mines had heen financed in such a '
manner thai they absolutely could nut
fulfil the expectations aroused hy the
prospectus, and if a satisfactory explanation, like an explosion or a strike,
had not heen furthcoming, failure
weiuld have greeted thc huge quantity of .Mackenzie & Mann paper which
was lieing offered. Sir Richard McBride. minister of mines, knew this.
lie was not anxious lo stop the strike
at  first.
"This was the kind of high finance
the Mackenzie & Mann crowd practiced with thc Vancouver coal mines.
They purchased thc Dunsmuir holdings of 200,000 acres for $11,000,000.
They proceeded to issue, against two
holes in the ground, at Cumberland
and Ladysmith, which could not possibly handle 1000 acres each. $10,-
000,000 in mortgage debentures, and
$5,000,000 in preferred stock. This
was characteristic of these financiers.
It was paralleled in their operations
in thc Portland Canal district, in
their lumbering activities, and in their
dealings with the C. N. R."
Payment of Accounts
Parker Williams, speaking before
the Social Democratic party, got a
large audience, and one which listened patiently, even eagerly through
more than two hours of rapid speech.
A larger portion of this was discussion upon the public accounts. Touching lightly with what he termed the
"bribery of the News-Advertiser,"
with a payment totalling last year
$37,000 to its proprietor, Matson, Mr.
Williams passed to certain other glaring instances of maladministration.
One of these was the construction of
a wagon road from Hope toward the
Coquitlam district. On enquiry he
discovered that this wagon road had
been   completed   for   six   miles   and
grubbed fur a  half-mile further.    Yel
on ii the stupendous sum ��jt $79,46.1
had   been   expended.
Turning lo an item uf $2,362, paid
tn one Calloway, of Vancouver, fur
examining certain coal bearing lands
in the Peace Kiver country, Mr. Williams declared that by reference to
the reporl Of the minister of lands
the location of these coal-bearing
lands were discovered, and that by
further  reference  lo  the  records  of
the land office, their owner appeared.
He was found to be Mr. Roberl
Green, now a representative at Ottawa and a friend of the local Conservative government There were
19.000 acres in tbe parcel. It appeared, he said, that the land had been
staked for Green in 1911, and that
later a payment of $100 a square mile-
had been made. Before Green made
the second payment of $100 a mile,
however, an expert had been sent up
to inspect the lands, not at Green's
expense, but at the expense of Ihe
Two-men Government
The government in British Columbia, the member for Newcastle said,
was a government of two men, McBride and Bowser, but it was more
and more becoming a one-man-Bowser government. Referring to the j
"Vancouver rubber stamps," he said
they deserved even worse names than
that. They had been in the legislature, some of them, for long periods,
yet he defied anyone to show, by the
records, what they were there for.
"If it wasn't for their photos in the
year book, and their signatures for
sessional allowances, historians would
not be able to determine whether they
were he, shc, or it," he asserted.
Dr. McGuire. he went on, had shown
a symptom of independence on thc
C. N. R. matter, but he quickly subsided. "Do you know why?" he queried. "McGuire had a desire to bc
superannuated as senator at Ottawa.
He had sort of been promised the
job. When he began to show independence, they held it over his head
that hc might not get this job if hc
did not fall into line."

A Chinaman'a Oath
A Chinese oath was recently administered in British Columbia with
all thc ceremonial accompaniments
that are observed in China when an
oath is taken in court. Seven Chinamen were charged with rioting, and
one, Moh Quong, a witness, was to
The Oath (says "The Youth's Companion";, was taken on the lawn at
the rear of the courthouse, in the
presence of the full court and many
interested spectators. It was written in the Chinese language, tei which
thc witness affixed his signature. The
charge against the seven men was
read to the witness by the interpreter, whereupon the witness took the
following oath :
"Being a true witness, I-shall enjoy happiness, and my sons and
grandsons will prosper for ever. If
I falsly accuse, I shall die on the
street, heaven will punish me, earth
will destroy me. I shall suffer adversity, and all my offspring' will be exterminated. In burning Ihis oath, I
humbly .submit tu the will of heaven,
which  has  brilliant  eyes  tu  see."
After the witness had signed liis
name to the oath, a young white
euck with red comb and yellow legs
was brought forth. Three junk
sticks and a pair of Chinese candles
were stuck in the ground and lighted
mar a block nf wood. "Next the oath
was read by the interpreter to the
witness, after which the latter wrapped the piece of paper on which the
oath was written round thc joss paper. The witness then laid the cock
on the block and chopped its head
at a single blow. After that he set
lire to the oath with a candle and
held it until it was wholly consumed.

"Selling two loaves of brown bread;
what a ground fur bringing proceedings! In my opinion this was a prosecution that ought never to have been
brought. Bread is a necessity. In
the greatest of all prayers Ihe Master has taught us to say, 'Give us this
day our daily bread.' It is an enjoined daily request, and I am convinced that the Legislature when it
conferred powers upon municipalities
to pass bylaws, never intended that
it should be used by them to make
it impossible to obtain bread on Sundays. Daily bread means more than
lhe bread we eat; it means the source
of recreation for Ihe body and' for

sports and pastimes on this one day

Thus spoke Mr. Justice McPhillips
in thc Appeal Court this week before a large gathering of counsel, in
giving his decision in the appeal ui
James Walden vs South Vancouver.

brother judges, all uf whom agreed
that the bylaw passed by the municipality prohibiting Sunday trading was

at 15 cents to a boy on Sunday, October 5.
In his judgment , which exhaustively discussed Ihe laws passed by Charles II, fur Sunday observance and the
practice of thc early church councils
which had passed into the common
law of England, Mr. Justice McPhillips saiel that a Pharasaical observance of the Sunday was never re-
miireil by law. Ile <|u-<te<l from English judges to the effect that a baker
baking dinners for his customers on
a Sunday Has performing a work of
necessity, and that "the Sabbath
would be much better observed by a
baker baking dinners for customers
bn Sundays, in order that his customers might go to church."
Chief Justice Macdonald in his
written judgment, said that the Provincial Legislature had no authority
to confer upon municipalities power
to make bylaws which had the effect
of criminal statutes, of which power
Parliament   was   the   sole  custodian.
"I   do  not   say   that  the  province

lading, but they can not made criminal  laws to enforce Sunday obscrv-
ince," said the chief justice.

It is not of his ardent younger days,
nor of his long reign as Premier, or

to-day gives one that I wish to depict. For both his friends and enemies are a little more critical today

And if you take a trip up to Ottawa you will find loss of power has
not robbed Laurier of one whit of
his own personal "grand" air. Rather
it has invested him with an additional
charm that will appeal to the sentimental who care very little about parly politics. Sometime it gives an almost fatherly tone to his attack on
the Conservative bantlings. It is thc
kind of altitude which is expressed
more in the ring of his voice than tlu
words actually said. It can he summed up best in sume such wav as follows :
"1 who have- been there for so long
where you now sit, at least have
learnt   Illing-,   that   ynu   have   yet   to
encounter." But in such expression
there is none of the loathsome personal egotism of a small man any
more than there is in his "grand"
manner, bur Laurier (even if you
dislike him politically) ynu must admit, has lhe real ring uf greatness.
In Action
When Laurier is going In get un
his feet old timers in the House can
lltnost sense it. He rises slowly! but
not like liorden, ponderously. He i.s
somewhat stooped in his peislure for
the unrelenting years of time arc
creeping on liim and when hot gesturing he leans on the knuckles of both
hands. Ilis gestures arc not wasteful. In fact hc gives you the impression that he is not going tn throw
any unnecessary vitality. He points,
perhaps, with the extended index finger of his oul stretched right hand.
Sometimes this finger is rigidly
straight and at other times it is
crooked a little. And somehow by
this slight change Sir Wilfrid conveys a wholly different significance
to his gesture. He goes on with the
wonderful ease of a human machine
lhat has been running for years. But
when thc moment comes for an effect, for a gesture. Sir Wilfrid rises
lo it and pulls it off with a stateliness
that no one else in the House ever
dreams of attaining. Hc can (to borrow an expression from slangy tbea-
atrical criticism), get "his punch over
the footlights." To make a gesture
that shall arrest attention, that shall
drive home a point on the hustings
of an electioneering campaign is an
easy thing compared to achieving a
similar effect in Parliament itself
where every one bas seen and heard
and knows all tbe resources of gesture and oratorical subterfuge. Here
personality alone can plough a way fur
for itself. And this Sir Wilfrid has.
He can send an electric thrill eef
speech even over the bored Hansard
reporters, tired with the mere sounds
of millions of words. For when Sir
Wilfrid has come to a climax hc docs
not roar, ur bawl, or flame, or smoke,
or act like a five cent human volcano.
He squares his thin shoulders, throws
his head gloriously back and upwards
and looks out over the listening
benches as from a conning tower, lie
will   even   perhaps   cease   his  vibrant
utterance  fur an  instant  to gain  an
added emphasis tu his wurels. And
back of all he speaks there is something far above mere party politics,
something rich and precious, because
it is the harvest of a long statesman's
life, commanding respectful attention
At these times, the House feels "Laurier has spoken." Some invisible, unheard bell in all of the members'
minds registers it���"Laurier has spoken."
When annoyed little fine wrinkles
corrugate his forehead. Otherwise
the whole of his personality is absolutely under control. His voice,
though slurring is penetrating and
cats ils way into your attention by
reason of its peculiarly blurred timbre. It is marked by an even consistency. But do not think by this that
il mean it_ is monotonous. On thc
i contrary his speeches arc always animated and winning, but the speed at
which he travels never changes much,
nor does he go to extremes of inflection. Sometimes be i.s quietly humorous, Xot in the mordant, cynical
way e.f a Parisian wit, but in the broad
���kindly way of ,-, pood grand-papa.
Where lu- shines is in repartee, fur
he is always mentally alert and keen
I The bow of his mind, so to speak,
never relaxes. Consequently, his style
of oratory is (ambient, never ponderous or dull.
His speeches arc those of a man
I widely and deeply read in bilks let-
jtres, besides the history of the Constitution. Metaphors and historical
allusions that arc both apt ami appropriate, cume easily frum his tongue.
One  of the  most  noted of these  was
his  statement  thai   he  was  "in   the
lines uf Torres Vedras" when speaking years ago on the famous Manitoba  School  Question.
Then, too, he sometimes resorts to
an air of condescension as if reproach
ing of apt phrases that stick in your
popular   imagination.      For   example,
he once called Ottawa the "Washington of the North." Ever since
then the label has stuck. And sej In
a hundred either cases Sir Wilfrid has
given journalists and those that cume
after him the necessary turn of
thought, the needful word. He has
enriched our English Canadian idiom
by dozens of phrases that have become stamped in the popular memory
for  their vital  truth.
Today his speech and tone are typically paternal, Indeed Sir Wilfrid
would make a model grandfather. He
has all the earmarks of one. Even
to the peculiar kind of bunts a grandfather wears���the kind with elastic
sides. But his grandfatherly air has
nothing of the low-grade grandfather

English representatives have an English vncabularly half as large as his.
The labor and toil that must have
been entailed on him to attain this
spacious and easy movement is forgotten by English-Canadians. Laurier. as a Frenchman, indeed, has never
existed seriously for them, although
hc is essentially French. While to
Ihe French-Canadian Laurier has he-
come the symbol of French Canada
at last fully united with English Canada. Sometimes, indeed, listening to
him speaking in French one almost
imagines from thc tone it is a cultured Englishman with a perfect accent declaiming. His early education
at mixed schools in his native parish,
St Lin and at l'Assomption College,
and his subsequent law studies at McGill begot no ordinary orator, for
Laurier is absolutely bilingual. And
when we compare him with purely
English speakers wc must neit forget
this  fact.
But in whatever language he
chooses to speak, it is the same Laurier, the orator of the "grand style."
And like all speakers of this type. Sir

A Pen Picture
Sir Wilfrid Laurier always heoks
his part. He is une of the.se few public individuals whose actual appearance does not disappoint you. Rather
you find the well-known photos of
the man have tailed t��� > do him complete justice. The striking faee with
its broad lofty forehead, its turfed i
crown of white hair, its long prominent nose indicative of dominance and
power, its alignment of chin and
mouth sends your mind irresistibly
back tu memories of other great
statesmen. It is the face of an aris-
tocrat, while thc mind belongs to the
arist'icracy of democracy. His eyes
are set wide apart and they gaze
steadily out at you. As a rule his
face is immobile; but, when his eyes
half clflse. it is quick to break into
a smile, the wrinkles running, upward on his face like little waves succeeding one another on a beach. When
listening or following a debate, Laurier leans forward with elbows rested
on his desk and one hand up to his
car to convey the sound better.
A favorite journalistic legend about
Laurier is that he is the best dressed
man in the House. But, as a matter of

IJ Concrete is recognized as the
only material suitable for hard
wear and permanent work and is
extensively used for the foundation of all modern pavements.
IJ Concrete pavements are becoming more and more popular
every year both in Canada and
in tlie L'nited States.
ni The discovery of a satisfactory concrete wearing surface
suited for all heavy traffic has
only been made after years of
study and experiment.
IJ In our Granitoid Pavement
we have a concrete base���a concrete wearing surface that will
meet the requirements of vehicular and automobile alike, becoming more durable with age.
