Liberal party of South Vancouver
and Burnaby on Thursday night in
tie, coming election campaign, The
executive met al Philip's Hall. McKay Station, and entered ��� >i t��� ��� the
Campaign plans and business in a
nieeM enthusiastic manner. Mr.
Wearl, tin.- ne,inim-, of the' Liberal
party for this riding, was present ami
gave iiuK-h valuable advice in the weerk
ol lhe executive. Delegates were presenl from all of the local associations
and a large amounl eet business was
gone through Committee rooms
were fixi-rI upon and committees were
appointed, and their plan of campaign
discussed. Meeting nights were arranged and the whole of the campaign business vvas gone int'1 with a
heartiness and goodwill which bespeaks success for the party ai coming
election. After the business had been
disposed of, the committee meeting
adjourned, and the members proceeded tee the larger hall, where Mr.
Wearl opened his campaign and delivered hi-  firsl election speech.
The large hall was filled to the
doors when th,' chairman with Mr.
Dow, Air. Cropley, anel Mr. Wean
appeared  . ,n  I Ik  platform,
Mr. Dow was the first speaker of
the evening, and in a few well chosen
words he spoke "f the unanimous
choice that li.nl been made by the
Liberal party when adopting Mr.
Wearl as their standard bearer, and
he counselled the audience t" weirk
together and give Mr, Weart their,
undivided support, and hc prophesied
success for the Liberal cause at the
nexl electii m.
- Mr. Creipiey wa- llie -next speaker
aril he gave a shorl and telling ael-
drcss in favor of Mr. Wean's candidature, stating that he had been a
former nominee of the Labor party
leer this constituency, having been
nominated bv the Ironmoulders' As-
- iciation. I le had intended to run
f.er the Lalieer party, but afler hearing Mr Weart at a previous meeting
state his platform, hc fell he could
���not run against such an able man with
such a progressive platform.
Mr. Cropley likened Mr. Weart to
Britain's Llovd George and claimed
that he wemld yet prove tee liritish
Columbia that he was their Lloyd
George. He sincerely hoped thai every working man would put aside al
this time all thoughts of Laborism
ami Socialism and come oul straight
fnr the Liberal party.
Mr. Wear! was received with a
great demonstration of cheering, lie-
staled il gave him greal pleasure to
e'e'tne before them at this time seeking tlicir suffrage. He was proud to
have had the lieuinr of the nomination nf the party at their convention
when I.V) delegates unanimously chose
bill! as their standard hearer, with the
greatest enthusiasm he hail ever witnessed.
Mr. Weart said lhat he had senl a
letter nf invitation 1" each .ef the
letlier candidates fen- tin' constituency.
asking   them    t"   be   present   at    this
meeting,  bul   tliey had  nol  found  it
Convenient I'e he present, lie hoped
���ei he ahle I" arrange with them for
n jeiint campaign, holding their meetings   together   in   the   different    parts
of Hie riding,
111 his speech Mr. Weart -aiel "ll
seems tee me the purpose eef tin- state
ought tee lie:
1. Tee preserve   lln   existence ol   lhe
ni tion.
2. Tn give iree ami fairplay In the
citizens in their varinus activities without regard   tei class distinction,
.1. Tn extend the principle of the
root of the idea nf nationhood, ami
co-operation of labor ior mutual hene-
4. Tee cinitr.il ami   operate    public
utilities.
5. The enactment .if such laws as
will prevent the paralysis of trade
by lockouts nr strikes in the in.lus-
trial world, make it a criminal offence
lo employ child labor, shorten the
statuary day. make thc workers position Independent by superannuation
at a fixed age, and enlarge the principles of tlu- law of compensation for
injuries received, no matter what the
cause.
The candidate here claimed that the
government were the people and the
liC'iple should rule. Speaking .el the
running of public Utilities he said in
many countries lhe people co-operate
nnil run their public utilities. Great
Britain has ir. the last few weeks been
showing a striking example of this.
What a boon and a saving to the
people it would be if they of liritish
Columbia owned and couhl operate
the hyilrn-elcctric peiwer of the province. This was done in other places,
why'not attempt to do it here? The
.. .ministration eif the last twelve year-
has never tried tee de. any of these
tVeiiiRS.
The- speech of the Hon. Mr. Ross
re the land policy of tlie governmenl
wa- strongly criticised by Mr. Wean.
He charged the minister with making
misstatements re iln- land p.,li.-%- and
claimed that millions of acres claim-
eel hy Mr. Ross p. be arable land
ami open for settlers, was ..nly mountain tops barren ami without value
-i far as settlers were concerned.
The candidate stated that on the
5,250,000 acre- of land -aiel to have
been s.elel  by  the government 9,000,-
IHKI eh,liars vva- ,.vv inn to the govern-
meiii e.n ii. ami this land was held by
speculate.rs.    men    wlm    had   come    in
and had been handed 'in the laml.
ami wh.. had even t>f.-;i protected by
the governmenl to ti;.' exte'in thai the
first cheques issued by ihem in payment fi these land-, were -till lying
in Victoria and had never been cashed, ami in faee of this we have the
premier ..f ilu- province running all
over tiie globe today seeking for
money t" finance their railways, railways whieh had been already bun-
useel away  over  their  cost.
"I'. G. K.." staieel the speaker iu
ihi- instance means "Pat (bi- Everything."
Price Elison's budget was next taken up by Mr. Wearl ami ably deall
wiih Ile showed thai ilu- figures
printed by the governmenl as being
the amount of taxes paiel in th,' p:.--
.iuee slieiweel conclusively thai the
taxes in those lands -..hi to speculators and friends 'ef the government
had  never  been   paid.
Dealing wiih the timber licenses,
Mr. Wearl stated thai in l'XM when
tiie governmenl went into pb'wer, the
licenses whieh had been yearly li-
censes, were extended to five years,
and iu 1906 again extended te, _'l
years, and what a vast aim .unl of
timber hael been sold. No matter,
said the speakre, what revenue the
government had received, ihe fact remains lhat it Is a mere bagatelle to
what should have been paid iu. if the
licenses and -axes had been properly
attended Pi.
If I am elected, said the speaker.
I shall move tee have these lands returned  tei  the  people.
Dealing with the laml settlement
question, Mr. Wean claimed the government had made no effort to do
anything feir a land settlement. He
criticised Mr. Lucas's statements em
this, and his reporl on the New /calami   system.
Is it folly, asked the candidate, t"
ge, into lhe world today and borrow
money on B. C. lands li may be so
and the lands nf li. C, may stink in
the   no-trils   of   financiers   at   present,
Inn if s... wine is ui blame?
The government have never done
their duty, said Mr. Weart, in tlie
financing of this province. The miii-
isters "I' the crown, what are they?
Practically rubber stamp-, the deputies are  the  men  who  ihi anv   work.
Dealing next with workmen's compensation, Mr. Wearl claimed that
the government hav, never attempted 1" pass legislation whereby a
workman can secure compensation
without litigation, He stated in Ontario legislation has been enacted
whereby a man being hurl i- compensated wiihe.ut litigation, In Britain
Lloyd Ceorge has brought in lhe most
drastic legislation ever attempted by
a legislator, lie had been hooted and
abused in London ami even ill Iiis
own home town for this, bin he hail
carried it through and now lhe peeeple
eef Creat Britain are seeing lhe benefits of this daily. Men who have been
hurt arc being compensated and without litigation. If this can be done
elsewhere, why mel in British Columbia?
Dealing next with the Dominion
Trust. Mr, Weart -aid this vva- a
painful and serious matter tie I! C.
The damage that this affair has eh nulla- met yet been known. If properly
handled, he believed this affair could
vet be made to pay all its liquidations, and he stated. "I shall be tin-
first tei take up this matter in the
house and try to do something in this
matter to redeem this province in the
eye- of  the   weirld."
Speaking of the unemployed, lhe
candidate -aid. "The government has
made no effort tee have an employment bureau. ll has failed to put
any legislation on the statute bee.'ks
to encourage men tei go on tee the
laml, of B. C Many either sins of
omission the government are
guilty .if. The land .night t'i be in
the hands of the people at first cost,
not at an enhanced price in the hands
nf friends and speculators who have
secured   these   lands.

There is a great deal in the Liberal Party in liritish
Columbia distasteful ii, ihe CHINOOK. There .are men
iu the Liberal Party in British Columbia who have, in our
opinion, not the faintest tinge of Liberalism in their makeup.
lie that as it may, The greal principles of Liberalism
as laic] down by George Brown are still alright. The doctrines of the  Hon. Alexander .Mackenzie are -lill alright.
Laurier is still alright. Tlu teachings of the greal Liberal
statesmen of England will stand the test of the ages.
It is our hope that througii ihe agency of Mr. Weart
and Mr. McGeer ami ihe other Liberal candidates, the good
old-fashioned principles of Liberalism may he brought forward in liritish Columbia. Some of mir Liberal candidates,
il elected, are hound lo fall by the wayside. W'e expect
this. But we mu.si he constructive. Let us establish for
once the basis 0f a party which ai leas, promises to espouse
the principles of Liberalism. Once established, ihen we

The Council met een Tuesday morning. Councillor Welsh being absent,
Reeve Gold called the nieeling to order and askeel fe.r a report from the
delegation appointed to meet the city
council r,- ih,- Little Mountain I'ark

thai tin- City and Point Grey were
reaely t. go ahead with tin- matter
Reeve Gold vvas against having any
���m,re- negotiations wiih iln- City or
Point Grey, saying: "Tin- is a matter f',r Souih Vancouver t" . 1��>-i��1 <-
f..r itself."
Councillor Stanley was iu Favor of
lhe matter being again brought befure- ihe people, sayin: "Tin- City ami
Poinl Grey are- prepareel to close the
deal, and I agree we an- nol legally
bound, bin we have a moral and verbal agreement with them, ami f'er
thai reaseeii I think we should sub-
mil a bylaw to lln people asking if
they are prepared t'e carry eeiii the
former agreement re the purchase of
Little Mountain I'ark. We are get-
iiii-j in iln- money soon for iln- sewerage aork an'! expect to gel a bean
from ihe government su I do met see
where the special hurry feer lhe mo-
ney exists."
Councillor Street: "I ei., not see
whal you want 1" g-e 1" llu- people- ..-
gam for in the matter. Tin- people
have already pre ine,um eel upon this
matter ami the llieeiiey lias been pr.>-
cureil   feer .,   specific   purpose."
Reeve Gold: "The Act give- you
power - u-e t-e ilu- people and ask
them i" decide what shall be eh em-
with the money, no malter feer whal
purpose  ihe  bonds  hav-  b.-e-n   sold."
Councillor Rowlings followed, saying. "1 have e-em,- ie, tin- conclusion
thai after uur conversation with Re.ve
Harvey of Point Crey and Mayor
Taylor -ef the City, these parties are-
willing I" come thrieiigll and -villi-
this deal for the park, and therefore
this is a matter in which four panics
are concerned, and therefore we
ought 1" work in conjunction with
these   peeeple."
Councillor Allen was in favor of
diverting this money and letting Little Mountain Park gee. lie -aiel: "I
claim thai .vhen- people want a park
they will go where there i- water
and where there are great natural advantages, I claim that the people
want breathing -paces throughout the
municipality, but they don't want this
l.itile Mountain I'ark. I am ir. favor eif breathing spaces throughout
the  municipality  on  a  smaller  scale.
Councillor Campbell followed ami
he was not sure thai there vvas need
f.er diverting the forty-four thousand
dollars. He- said: "If we can ge. a-
hcad with the sewerage vveerk. ami
lhe money feer that vve,rk is assured.
then there i- me need for diverting
ihis in,.ney. bu; I am still doubtful
about  tin- money  coming  in   toot
The engineer wa- called into the
meeting at thi- poinl ami wa- asked
regarding the sewerage plans when
they woulil be completed. Hc explained thai certain drainage anas
hail been submitted to the sewerage
board and had been approved by them
ami therefore the work could be -lar-
led as soon a- llu money was available. Inn. a- f.er iln- completed plans,
be couhl iieei say jusl when these
would be   ready.
Councillor Russell then suggested
tbat another delegation be appointed
le, again nice! wiih Poinl Crey c .mi-
cil ami thrash ihis matter out. but
this did met find favor with the council.
Re.ve Gold: "I el"u'! wanl anv
in..re deputations eer meetings with
Point Crey or the City. I've made
up my mind in thi- matter and don't
wish be have any more meetings a-
b.'iil   lln-  al   all."
Councilor Street nexl te���<.k up the
matter and said to the Reeve. "Did
ye.u or eliel ye.u 11. .1 say lo the people
when "ii your election campaign that
Ibis money would remain where it
was.  for  its  own   specific  purpose."
Reeve Gold: "I did not: 1 askeel
the clerk where the money was and
stated thai 1 would see that it was
put into a specific fund for a specific
purpi .se."
Councillor Campbell here remarked
lhat he failed tee sec where any more
delegations or meetings would i\o any
good. The people should be the bosses in this matter and decide what
sheiuld be done with  tlle money.
Reeve Cold: "The people have not
always been thc bosses in  the past."
Councillor Stanley: "1 take objection I', the reeve's remarks about the
ne.eple not being always the bosses.
T am willing to serve the people and
I am willing to go lo the people on
this matter. 1 don't want to sit here
if the people don't want inc. You,
Reeve Gold, are afratd and not willing t" go to thc people. If the people  wanted me to resign  I'd sour,  do
Reeve Gold: "I think -..m, of ye.u

t.e   the   pee.ple."
Council), r Campbell: "I claim you
have ii" right to make these remark-.
Ye.u have no right t" be a ju.Ige of
ihis."
Councillor   Stanley,   addressing   the
reeve:   "Will   you   go   lo   lhe   people
along with lhe council if we all agree
te, do   SO?'
Councillor Campbell: "Certain peo-
pK asked nn- to resign but when f
attended their meeting they had met

a resolution calling e.n nu- in resign.
Reeve Gold, would you resign:-"
Reeve Gold: "I'm g-eing to stay

Gentlemen:���
Sanitary work In this department
has greatly increased during the past
month. The advent of warmer weather ha- brought numerous complaints
of unsanitary conditions. Nearly all
f these have been attended t" as
promptly as possible, and instructions
advice given to remedy the nuisances.
Many premises have been inspected
in lhe usual course of duties, including the principal Chinese colonies in
ur midst, where conditions called for
very sharp .erders be clean up. These
have made an attempt t" comply, Inn
there- is much \et to bc desired.
There i- a general tendency i" carelessness "f surroundings, and lack of
mention i" many ..f tlu common acts
ef cleanliness becomes apparent,
which is ii" longer excusable as the
men   have   time-   for  these   things
Garbage collections have- fallen eeff
slightly during ilu- past month, principally owing t" ilu- letting out of
fires.'
Tin- fe-iir additional drivers have
assumed their duties Tlu- revenue
fe.r the month from ihis source is
$165.95, and iln- drivers' wages amount
to $274.S<>. This work overs the removal eef sweepings from all paved
streets, other ditch cleanings of offensive nature, contents of waste paper boxes, and also ashes and refuse
from the Municipal Hall, the Fire-
halls, and  the  People's  Kitchen.
The delivery of wood in relief cases,
the covering of the garbage dumps
wilh earth, the rocking of the P,oard
e.f Works yard and other similar work
is performed by the Garbage Department, in addition Pi regular routine
work,  and   without   charge   or   record.
Quarantine and placarding has increased somewhat, owing to the prevalence of infantile diseases, and fumigation has been carried out as re-
tpiircd.
Employment has been dealt with in
conjunction with the ward foremen
whee. whilst endeavoring to give each
man a share, have generally been willing to give any really destitute a
quick  turn.
There are recorded for wnrk. as
follows: Ward 1. 180; Ward 2. 122;
Ward 3. 295: Ward 4. 85; Ward 5.
148: Ward 6. 116; Ward 7. 154; Total,

Robert 1'latchfonl withstood tlu- ridicule of hosts
of his Socialist coincides when he told them that the
greatest menace they liad to face was not tbe 11< ,u-e-
of Peers bul the Prussian military spirit. The same
spirit rules today in liritish Columbia in the form of a
machine which lias sapped the Province of its natural
resources and brought the people to a state of desti-

C11KKI*. is nothing sn important to your health and efficiency as the matter with
your teeth. Sound, useful, beautiful teeth should be yours���teeth that enable
you to bite, chew and smile in comfort. Decayed teeth cause, not only continual
inconvenience, but permanent ill-health, it is your duty to yourself to economize
;n other ways so lhat you may secure teeth that look natural, feel natural and perform the functions which Nature allotted to those important members.
/TsHEREFORE you should choeise your dentist with great care. It is poor
V^ economy to buy "bargain teeth." Inferior dentistry���poor materials, little
knowledge and less care���costs but little less than the right kind even al the beginning, and certainly is much more expensive in thc long run.
X EM PLOY only the most modern methods, the greatest care and skill and the
best materials. Each individual case is carefully studied. When I fit you
with my "Nature teeth" they look, fit and feel like the ones Nature gave you. And
you will find my prices no higher than those of ordinary dentists.
GOME in and allow me to examine your mouth, advise you and give you my
estimate of the cost. This will involve no obligation whatever. Make Up
yuur mind now to see to those teeth. Then call, phone or write to me now,
making appointment for examination.

No; the reason why the wonderful
and daring work e,i the German cn-
gineer ai Kiel was iieei made known t"
all and sundry was because this vast
scheme was carried oul mainly for
strategical considerations.
1 he undertaking was put in band
and teverishly hastened to completion
in order that the latesl German
Dreadnoughts mighl safely and expeditiously Ue transferred from the
N'orth Sea lo ihe Baltic, or vuv versa, thcreuy making the whole "i the
German fleet operativi at .1 lew hours
notice in either waters, In a word,
the new locks al Kiel and ihr widened
and deepened wain-way there were
a bold bid on the part of Germany to
make herself mistr - of the seas "i
Northern  Europe.
Tee appreciate the engineering difficulties and wonders of the waterway, however, it i- necessary t" tl<-
scribe firsl the building of the original
canal, and then to note thc improvement recently completed. Thr canal
wa- begun in 1887, and completed in
1895. 11 is a little over sixty-one
inilrs iii length, se, ran claim t" be the
second longest canal in the world. It
is only exceeded in length by the Suez
and is seeinr twenty miles longer than
ihe- urw ranal across the isthmus of
Panama.
As an aid to commerce, it saves
two and a half elays' journey around
the coast ot Denmark. It reduces the
distance irenn London tee Petrograd by
some 2.W miles, while Hamburg is
brought nearer to th, Russian capital
by some 424 miles.
Tlu- canal is nol lockless, although
it is inarly so. Whereas the object
nf the locks at Panama is to transfer

ihis number  via-    considerably    augmented; indeed at  one time a- many
as fourteen thousand men were engaged, the  whole sixty  miles nf thc waterway being virtually tine continuous I
workshop.
.Naturally, the- mosl difficult and
ostl) pan of the whole scheme was
I the rebuilding of ihe locks. Tluy are
thc largest structures of their kind in
existence. Each measure - 1,150 feel
m length, 148 feel in width, and 4o
feet in depth. The dimensions of the
famous Panama locks are l.inw feet,
110 feet, and 39 feel respectii ely.
By pumping the wain- out of them,
the Kiel Canal locks can be used, it
need I"'. as gigantic dry docks. Thus,
with a closed canal, or even a partially closed channel, the German Fleet
has at its disposal four massive dr)
docks, two at each end of the waterway.
Another advantage following 011 the
improvement of thc canal 1- that, as
lhe surface level is n. ,v\ .1.14 feci wide,
ships are enabled to pass such other

As already stated, ihis wonderful
waterway vvas designed mainly for
strategical reasons, to enable tin German Fleet t.e operate effectively and
quickly in either the Xorth Sea or the
Bailie. When, therefore, thc Kicks at
tbe entrance became toe, small for the
newer types of battleships antl cruisers
the canal lost much of iis importance.
Hence it vvas decided in widen it. and
in the Naval Budget of 1��08. the Ger-
man Government voted a sum of no
less than ��11,150,000 f.er this purpose.
Curiously enough, this weerk was
hastened as a result of an accident

eranirs. of I..tllli teens, while making

rounding "iir of the sharp curves the

softly, then the three-quarters; chimed   at    lasl    llu-      seven     little      silver
chimes.
The doctor sal by lhe deep divan
with gentle fingers on the limp wrist,
keen eyes mi lhe mask-like faee. The
three men huddled together in a little
group by ihe mullioned window, talk-
inn in low tones of the friend they
all loved and were I" lose, And Frank
Hamilton -at in silence, a few feel
away from lhe doelor, with a look of
discomfort in his Bteady eyes and a
vague uneasiness rising over and a-
hnve his grief in ihe recesses of his
heart.
As the eloek slruek 7 there was an
undecided kuoek at llu- door. Hamilton rose swiftly in reply, and returned iu a iiioiuenl with a small envelope
in  his  hand.
"For him." I le glanced al the doe-

"From his wi],,."
"From my wife" A faint color,
born "i excitement, tinged ihe marble
laee.    "Ue ad il to tne.  , rank."
The other man open, d the envelope
with  fingers  thai  -hook a little.
For a moment Hamilton read in
silence, while lhe eye- of lhe doctor
watched  his  faee.
\t last Dr. Forrest rose wiih an exclamation. "Hamilton, what i- it? Is
' anything wrong?"
"Wrong? Xo." Ilis voice rang
through lhe room and belied his
ghastb' fa.-- "Dick, old man. Betty

"My Bettyl" Ilis eyes closed and
an ashen shade crept 'ieer his faee.
Tlie doctor rose to minister to his
pntientl but as he moved forward
Frank advanced quickly and look the
other man's arm iu a grip e.f steel
in  lhe dusk.
'For God's sake- lei him die!" Ile
hissed ilie words into ilie doctor's
ears, and the latter, puzzled, fell a
sudden spasm of indignation whieh
passed swiftly as he looked into Hamilton's anguished eye-.
"ll i> nol for ine lo slay or lo keep

"Hut���ah���-ah '
Ilis long-drawn    exclamation    .Ii<-< 1
away a- hi- gaze fell mi lhe artist's

Thorpe.
"Gentlemen, Mrs. Thorpe will come

"Cad. Hamilton, you acted like a

"Well." he .aid wearily. "I waul

We all loved him. Forrest, and tliey

.ie doctor hesitated Then he
moved to the curtained doorway leading to the room where Ihe young men
were congregated, hanging about in a
dejected group, each face bearing the
impress of the terrible scene they had
just experienced. As the doctor entered there was a movement of relief,
and one of the three switched on the
electric light with an apologetic murmur.
The (loctor spoke reluctantly.
"I have come to (ell you something,"
he said. looking round al lhe trio.
"To explain to ymi lhe absence of

When hc had finished, the' men
went out silently, one by one. Comment  was impossible  with  that  quiet
form lying in the studio beyond. With
the morrow would come curiosity, all

was emly lhe silence nf a vast ami intimate  sympathy.
W hen they were gone Dr. Forrest

Stood by the siele' eef his <lc.nl friend.

"Come." The doctor took him by

'There's your answer. Frank," said
the doctor softly, pointing tn the
while faee mi which the smile slill
lingered. "Ymi need met doubt a-

Anil looking at the peaceful face
Hamilton knew the words were true.
And the knowledge broughl a sense

weight of his sorrow.

it has somewhat disappointed ami
surprised me to find that yem are' not

Tlu m' past weeks has been of live
interest caused by your suspensions
and the council reinstating, and one
of your remarks sn often used was
that ymi were determined to clean

that ymir had judgment is nol allowing this tu lu' brought into effect,
why? Simply because you cannot or

What I wish to point out to you

Great Liberal Rally Last
Wednesday at McKay, Burnaby!
(Continued irom pagre   1)
Touching on annexation, Mr. Weart
said that in spite of the voice of
South Vancouver and the voice of
the city in this matter, the government had deliberately turned them
down and refused to Consider them
on this vital question.
The governmenl lias not safeguarded the people's interests sufficiently
in acts and agreements with corporations, powers to cross lines, control
of freight and passenger rates. It
has made no effort to create a labor
bureau, as a clearing house for labor demand and Supply.
It has made no effort to institute
pablic works to care for the unemployed, occasioned by the land boom
of which it  was the chief   offender.
The government should at all times
be in touch with its labor and witli
its manufacturers, and, said Mr
Weart, "I am in favor of a govern
nieiit  employment bureau."
"If we are going tei bonus and pay
for railways then we should operate
thein."   saiil   the  speaker.
Closing a stirring address, Mr.
Weart said, "If in your opinion the
government has failed in its duty to
you in ye.nir affairs. Ihen I ask your
support. I believe I am a working
man, and I have never got above believing that 1 am such, and I am
and always have been willing to meet
and shake hands with my fellow workman.
At the close of his address, Mr.
Weart was awarded a great ovation,
and after a few questions had been
asked and satisfactorily answered by
the candidate, the meeting closed by
singing  the  National  Anthem.

We are poorer by three families
who have moved their homes out of
Se.uth Vancouver last week. We can
hardily realize that we have homesteaders within twenty miles from the
metropolis of Hritish Columbia, and
that these homesteaders can come to
work in the city every morning. Mr.
Gales Johnson and family, Mr. VV.
Fredrickson and Mr. and Mrs. Stoger
moved on Priday of last week, and
Mr. Lancaster and family are going
some day next week. There are some
twenty-five more who intend to move
out to this same locality.

MacDONALD, HAY & WEART
BARRISTERS,   SOLICITORS,   ETC.
1012 Standard Bank Bldg. Vancouver, B.C.
Take for instance the holding up
of the pay cheques of the municipal
staff last week, until he knew it
would be difficult for the employees
to cash them. Was there ever an-
eether reeve wlm would descend te.
such a paltry ami contemptible means
of showing spite? 1 very much demlil
it. Hut that incident is typical ofl
Eddie ('-"hl's whole conducl as reeve.'
and as I stated in the preceding paragraph, Eddie appears te, lie incapable
eif realizing how small and petty and
babyish such actions make him appear
in the eyes eef even his own followers,
wh,. are rapidly forsaking him he-
cause of his pettifogging, spiteful
vindictiveness.
* * it
Eddie seems lei think that by his
pill pricks and paltry actions he is
demonstrating his firmness and "the
iron hand" he used to talk about on
the platform, when boasting of how
he weiuhl drive the councilors and the
municipal staff when he got hold of
the reins of office. As a matter of
fact, he is simply demonstrating the
truth of what his opponents have always said concerning him���that Kddie Gold had neither the tact, diplomacy e.r discretion requisite ie. govern a municipality or to control a
council of self-respecting men.
* * *
The trouble with Eddie is that he
will not be taught, met even by experience, He is always righl and everybody else is always wrong, il they
differ from him. lie seems to regard pigheaded obstinacy as firmness,
suspicion 'ef all municipal transactions by past councils or employees
as business smart ness. and lhe holding up .et cheques for services rendered or goods supplied as looking
after the interests of the ratepayers.
As a matter of fact such trumpery,
childish actions as the neve seems
to delight iii merely stamp him for
what he is���a grown up mother's .killing, a  man  spoiled in  the  making.
* el.    *
However. I am glad Eddie Gold is
reeve of Seeuth Vancouver, There is
an old saying about giving a man rope
enough. Thai is why I am glad lid-
die is reeve this year. Ile has already
used up sufficient rope to kill all
chance of his re-eleetiien and tee destroy thc people's faith in him. For
after all, the bulk of Souih Vancouver
ratepayers are of Hritish origin, with
traditions of honor, fair play and justice bred into them, and such petty actions as holding Up employees' pay
cheques, after they were two weeks or
a month overdue, just to "show
Ihem" whal a vindictive reeve may do,
savors too much of "Kaiser Hill" to
he palatable tee a Britisher.
* * *
Eddie's followers have now dwindled down to a few sycophants looking for municipal jobs, one or two
Americans and Italians doing likewise, and a number of admiring women who seem to spend more time at
the municipal hall than they do al
I home. There was a time when Eddie
was looked upon hy a large number of
good business men as a sort of Daniel
come to judgment. That time is past.
Kddie has wasted his opportunity. Pie
has been so busy head-chopping to
make way for his supporters. and
wrangling with councillors when they
elid not see eye to eye with him. that
he has hail n.e lime lo attend to the
really serious needs of the municipality���which was what the business
men expected him  to do.

However, I am glad Eddie ('.eel
reeve of Semlli Vancouver. Ther
an old -aving about giving a man rope
enough, Thai is why I am glad h.il-
die is reeve ilii-, year, lie- has already
used up sufficient rope to kill all
chance of his re-election and to destroy the people's faith in him. For
after all, the hulk of Soulh Vancouver
ratepayers are of liritish origin, with
traditions eef honor, fair play and justice bred into them, and such petty actions as holding up employees' pay
cheque8, after they were two week- e.r
a nneinh overdue, just to "show
them" what a vindictive reeve may the,
savors ie��e> much of "Kaiser Bill" tee
he palatable to a Britisher.
Eddie's followers have now dwindled down to a few sycophants leee.k-
ing for municipal jobs, one or two
Americans and Italians doing likewise, and a number of admiring wmn-
eii who seem to spend more time at
the municipal hall than they do al
home. There was a time when Eddie
was looked upon by a large number of
good business men as a snrl of Daniel
come l" judgment. Thai time is past.
Eddie has wasted his opportunity. He
has been set busy head-chopping t"
make way for his supporters, and
wrangling with councillors when they
1 did not see eye !.. eye with him, that
he has had no time to attend to the
really serious needs of the municipality���whieh was whal the business
men expected him lo iln.
+ * *
Moreover, Eddie has gone hack mi
his pre-election pledge-. All municipal work was t" lie done by day labor. Eddie has hinted on several occasions lhat some of hi- pel contractors would be glad tn pave Fraser
Street and Kiver Road ami tn take
municipal bonds in payment. The
up-keeping of ihe standard rate "i
wages was promised, yet Eddie favors
a government loan to he used for relief work at $2.25 a elay. Te. put the
finances in such shape that there
would be sufficient income tn give
the men employment all the year
rnund. "instead of wasting it nn useless contracts tn favorites, extravagant purchases and pleasure trips"
was another promise. Yet Eddie has
been trying hard for several weeks
to waste hundreds of dollars over an
