Canada is today in the hands of the

interests.
Mackenzie & Mann have as secure
a strangle heeld em the Dominion Government as they have upon the Provincial Government of liritish Columbia.
Premier Borden and his colleagues

Hard times in lhe West will continue so long as the Federal Government subsidises the classes te, the utter subjection  of the masses.

Mrs. Ralph Smith, "lie eif the most

subject eef political equality. She
made a nnest temperate address in
favor of women's rights. In the platform 'if the Liberal party in Hritish
Columbia was a promise to enfranchise tbe women e.f the Province. Mrs.
Smith hoped that the mothers, and.
in tact, all women in Hritish Columbia
would bear this in mind, and bend
their influence  accordingly.
In   part   Mrs.   Smith   said :
"If women have the vote they will
have an opportunity to say what has
been pent up during all bygone years,
and, take my word for it. they will
have  lots  tei say."
Thi- progress of the suffrage innvc-

through the quiet, persistent ami intelligent methods employed, ami she
emphasized as one tti th.' reasons for
their desire eef the franchise the fact
that women have mit al the present

At the meeting of the Board of
Trade of Smith Vancouver on Monday nighl nest, the question ol Asiatic immigration will be brought up
according t.i a statement by one of
the members. < Ither Hritish Columbia municipalities are going e>u record as being absolutely opposed to
the bringing into the country of
Japs and Chinese. Smith Vancouver
being the municipality to suffer to
the greatesl extent of any in Britisl
Columbia in this connection, the subject is considered to be quite in order. The recent landing of smuggled
Japs e.n \ ancouver Island adds interest to ibis subject, ami ii is probable that iln' South Vancou; er Board
of Trade will give Mr. II II Stevens

Rates are not Exorbitant
Superintendent Joseph Mullett has
prepared a table showing a comparison of rates charged for water in
various municipalities throughout
British  Columbia.

blanket on the operations of thc free
water agitators, shows that the rates
in South Vancouver are fairly low as
compared with those in the neighborhood.
Water rate per month���South Vancouver, 83c to $1.50; New Westminster, $1 to $1.62; llurnaby, $1 to $170;
Nanaimo, $1 to $1.50; City of Vancouver, 50c to $1; Richmond, $2.50.

follows : South Vancouver, $2.50;
New Westminster, $2; llurnaby, $2;
City of Vancouver, $2.50.
Charges for making a connection
with the water mains are made in
three of the districts named, as follows: Burnaby, $3; Nanaimo, $5;
Richmond, $2.50.
The usual water rate notices have
been mailed to ratepayers. Those

Citizens'  League  Meeting
There wa( a lively time at the meeting of the South Vancouver Citizens'
League, Tuesday night. There is
trouble in the camp of thc league, and
the insurgents have formed another
organization under the title of the
South Vancouver Citizens' Reform
League.
Mrs. Kalenberg, who owns the hall
I of that name on Main street, rose up
at the gathering and branded Col. C.
Rayner, who has been responsible
for the organizing of the original league, as a "great big baby."
Col. Rayner naturally resented this
attack.
There were many ladies present,
and they made it quite clear at the
meeting that they were the people
who  bad   held   the   league   together.
Mrs. Kalenberg1! attack on Col.
Rayner arose out of a discussion of
the  collection  of dues.
One of the presidents of the league, who was in the chair, was very
much opposed to Rayner, who declared that he was the "inception of
the league." The president claimed
"inceptionary" honors and denied
that he had treated Rayner with any
discourtesy. Rayner held tbat he was
being handled roughly and charged
that some of his colleagues were
"rough persons."
Rayner appealed to the audience
as to whether the Citizens' League
had not been constitutionally formed
in public meeting. It was agreed that
the Citizens' League had been properly established antl on a vote being
put it was unanimously resolved thai
Mr. Rayner should hand over the list
of member!, etc., to Mrs. Kalenberg,
vice-president of the league, and that
ti meeting be called to decide whether
to je.in Force! with the Citizens' Reform League, which is the one Mr.
Rayner  has  since  partially organized.
After Mr. Rayner had handed the
list of member! to Mrs. Kalenberg
be mounted the platform to read out
The FEDERAL TRUCK has never been an experiment
Thc Federal Truck was not offered for sale until its power, its itrength, its
durability, its economy, its success had been scientifically demonstrated.
The fact that there are in Opfa tion today moo Federal Trucks of the original
Federal design demonstrates the .scientific soundness of that original   Federal design.
The Federal was the first successful truck designed, built and sold by a company
organized exclusively for tlie manufacture of trucks. We have never had lo rebuild

the charter which had been prepared for the Reform League, and a personal squabble with the president vvas
just brewing when someone in the
audience moved that the meeting adjourn. This was,carried unanimously
and the proceeding terminated.
This attempt to squeeze Rayner
out of thc league has resulted in that
gentleman securing from Victoria a
charter under the Benevolent Societies Act for tbe South Vancouver
Citizens' Reform League. The promoter of this league has a richly embossed charter in his pocket together with articles of association and all
the paraphernalia which usually accompanies tbe formation of joint
stock companies.

Wolves Again Victorious
On July 20th, the South Vancouver
Wolves journeyed to Nanaimo and
defeated the "Nanaimo Tar Flats,"
by the score of 9-7, in an exciting exhibition hall-game. Grimmett, who
pitched for the Wolves, again displayed excellent form, fanning fifteen opposing batsmen. P. James
furnished the batting feature, wben he
lined out a home run kith two men
ahead of him. Mr. Phil Piper umpired
thc game in an efficient manner. Thc
Batteries were : For the Wolves, W.
Grimmett and S. Ross, and for the
Tar Flats, F. Motley, R. Bell and A.
Watson.

Rose Day
Rose day, thanks to splendid
weather and the enthusiastic industry
of a number of ladies, was a brilliant
success. It is pleasant for us to know
that South Vancouver had a share in
the goeed work. There is little doubt
that many were stimulated to patronizing the ladies by the touching
versefl of our well-known correspondent "Felix Penne" whose lines we
print a.s a souvenir of a day remarkable in tbe history of the philanthropic  work  of  Vancouver.
"BUY A ROSEI"
U'ritten for "Rose Day." July 22. 191.1.
The Royal Victorian Order of Xurscs.
By Felix Penne.
In this fair City, with its wealth and
beauty,
Lurks   poverty   and   pain,   and   fell
disease.
If you  have sympathy���then do y.eui
duty
And  help  Christ's  poor and  needy
���"Such as these."
l'ndcr the shadow of the tall church
steeple
There   crowdeth   sin,   and   poverty,
and  death.
Will   you   met  do  your   part  to  help
God's  people.
Who  light   for  life  with  scant   ami
laboring  breath?
(Buy a  Rose���a  Pretty  Rose!)
Deft  fingers fashion'd  stem, and  leaf
and flower,
Art  copied   Nature,  with  a  loving
care.
Kind-hearted     women     worked     for
many  an   hour
To mould the blossoms they would
have  you  wear.
Each rose you see today in this great
city
Doth   bear  the  perfume  of  a   love
sincere;
Thc  buds   arc   fragrant  with  a   holy
pity,
The   leaves  are   dewed   with   sympathetic  tear.
(Buy  a   Rose���a  Pretty  Rose!)
When  sinks  tbe sun  in  all its western splendor,
Let's count our gains and cry, "We
have  well  done"
For the  good work  of  nurses���true
and  tender.
Let us all say: "We have your help
well won."
"The Nurse's Creed?"    It is Christ's
true   salvation;
T'will  some    day   rule    the   world
now war-mad blind.
"Let  LOVE  aid  weak  and  poor  of

Editor "Chinook."
Sir,���They say there is a suckc
be em every minute of the day. I be
lieve that, also that a large numbei
of them have come to reside in South
Vancouver and  that  1  tun one of the
number. Only think, sir, that 1 wa
foed cneeugh tee hand over four bits
to become a member of an association, promoted by a gentleman ,,
here. The saiil gentleman led us to
believe that our subscription was to
remove certain grievances, but almost
immediately afterwards be wanted t'.
I... appointed, at a .salary, to a nice
soft job on the association. This is
really a new way of providing a sine
cure. The gentleman wliei was president of the association was getting
a fair share of the funds f.er the
printing he was doing, whilst tbe vice
president rented the hall. A few
liters came in tee assist at the pickings, whilst many of us had to sacrifice a meal to our family to pay the'
four bits. I heard a charge made
against the president and would like
to know if it is true that he had previous trouble with the water depart-
ment. If this is the case, then il is
easily unilcr.-.t..e.d why he figured so
prominently, Il is also said there was
another of tlie leaders, who had
trouble with the licensing authorities.
A nice hunch to influence the election
of any bylaw. Can anyone imagine
such a bunch bringing charges of
malt against any others. I really be-
lieved what was said was true or
they would never have got my four-
bits. Now anyone can see what was
at the bottom of it all, and Messrs.
Rayner, Lewis & Company were only
making suckers out of us all.
ONE   OF   THE   SUCKERS.
Editor  "Chinook":
Dear Sir,���Where, Oh where is thc
sentiments of Mr. Charles Rayner,
Who charged the council with robbing
the widows and orphans. Alas, alas,
for our ideas, what ideals can hungry
el"gs have, who unexpectedly find a
goeed   carcase.
Keep to your lofty ideal, Mr. Rayner; show the people you are the
champion of the widows and the
orphan; that you are not actuated
with the thoughts of filthy lucre.
Whilst Lewis and Hill fight in the
arena for who shall Ket possession
of the funds, stand you by with firm
mien, disdain to take any part in the
unseemly fight���.she,w thc ratepayers
that you are not after the paid job
that Hill imputes you are. Show that
your motives are pure, and retire like
a gentleman. If mercenary motives
prompted others to take a forward
part in thc movement let the electors
understand once and for all that it
was eenly from the high stand of seeing that the widow and orphan were
not robbed that made you ask for the
the joining up of the one
association to the former. Let your
enemies say you wanted( to get an
easy jeib, you can deny this; let them
say you are excitable and lose control of yourself and made your arm
swing r.iund like a windmill, but you
can easily ask to be excused on this
point as you was so deeply stirred
with thoughts of the dishonesty and
graft that was going on. Show once
for all that you neither are after the
funds nor the easy job. Then you
will be able to say who can doubt the
motives of Charles Rayner.

PASSING A CRISIS
A I'TKR all the uproar occasioned by the presenting eif
A the iwe. money bylaws, we find that the people have
endorsed both measures, ami thereby, p. s.eine extent, have
assisted the present council eetti of a very bad hole
Glancing e.wr the returns ,,f Saturday last, it is easy i"
tee where ilie real cause of the unsatisfactory conduct ..i
municipal affairs lie -
Some 600 votes were cast last Saturday ami there arc
more than 10,000 people in Seutih Vancouver entitled to
vote on Mich measures. Aboul every twentieth man.
therefore, took any interesi whatsoever in tin- Saturday
bylaws. When the bylaws were voted upon lasl spring -
bylaws which authorized the council t" raise millions of
dollars -.nn- 800 men cast their ballots���800 men ..ut .ef
t,������-e than  10,1     ���
li i- likely thai lhe men who have v..ted will be satisfied
wiih the re-suit fi-.ein th.- polls. The remaining 9,000 or so
will likely -pe-ml the rest of the year kicking, knocking,
yelling, clamoring, snarling, back-biting.
While we do ii"l propose to he.hi a brief Im' th.-se
wild agitators who have been s.. active during the past
month, there is no man who can -ay that iheir activities
are not resulting in some good feer the district. It's t��� ���<��
bad that the burden of raising Ned has had lo fall upon
so irresponsible a set eef men. Hut men of a better type
wouhl hesitate before placing themselves before the public
M these hot-heads have done,
These men have drawn the attention of the people in
������������I I., a certain condition of affairs existing in thc
municipality that might he improved upon. They are
awakening the people to the necessity of paying more
attention to the ways and means employed by the council
iu spending public monies. Some of these fellows are
aspirants for municipal office, and some nf them are
equal ill weight of intellect to more than one man already
seated upon the Soulh Vancouver council board.
li is to be trusted that now the municipality is proceeding to overcome a critical period in her history that the
men who have heen elected lo direct the affairs of the
disiricl will get down to business ami put off play-acting
for some future time.
"Maele P. "heat it.'���I hie of these 'elders' was found the
.tint evening iii ilie he.me of a well-known Collingwood
man. win., suddenly returning fr.ein we.rk, ami finding the
ehler' preaching Salt Lake doctrines lee his wife, made the
missionary 'beat it' in a very undignified style.
"'Millenium' Men.���.Much more active than the Mormons are some Bible sluileiils who are preaching, in a
more fervid and emotional manner, 'ihe coming e.i the
millenium.'
"Il is impossible feer any thinking man to view the effect
Ihe preaching of fliese doctrines has had on the people "f
Central I'ark ami Collingwood, witbeeut much regret ami
even alarm."
Then follows lhe cheerful message to the "Sun's"
readers. "Men Going Mad.���South Vancouver has ne.l a
large adult population and yet for se.nie time past���as the
police authorities slated the other day. 'people have- been
going I.' Ihe lunatic asylum al lhe rate eef one a week.

the peripatetic missionaries geeing about the district will
at ..me. see that tin- fear eef 'nol being ready' when the elay

has quite obsessed them."
Tins lasi paragraph robs the article of ii- seriousness
p. senile extent.
"An Altered Man.��� Ii is common talk that a well-known
lui-imss man wh... until a few weeks ag.e. wa- quite a
happy Bohemian, has now become a rabid millieniurnist.

PUBLIC NOTICE
HARMFUL RIDICULE
SOUTH VANCOUVER citizens, particularly the business element, are annoyed at lhe consistent efforts
which the Vancouver "Meirning Sun" seems lo he making
to injure tin municipality in lln- eyes of ilie outside
we.rid. While- there is a great field in South Vancouver
for the securing e.f teal, live, wholesome news that will
together interest thc average newspaper reader and pro-
nii.le g.ieal feeling and optimism on all hands, it would
appear thai llie "Morning Sun" lias no use for such
"stories," Inn prefers t.. print South Vancouver matter
of either a sordid, melancholy character e.r a highly sen-
satienia! color. The journal fails n. consider that a knock
p. South Vancouver i- a knock pe ih.' parent city ami
seems to lose sight of its seri.ui> responsibility ami ii��
power feir either g<��eid or evil.
l-'roni an article recently published in the "Morning
Sun." relating t.. South Vancouver, the average- reader,
unaware of conditions on ihe Fraser slope, would take
ii fe.r granted that the imiuicipalit.. contained nothing
more or less than a colony of lunatics ami religious
fanatics.
"Tillies are batl in South Vancouver, Men are out eif
work ami even those who have been working for the
municipality and a few in some industries have mil been
able to obtain their wages." This is ilu- way the article
opens under a great, black-face head which says, "Many
Queer Creeds in tin Municipality���South Vancouver

Then iln- writer goes on in an attempt in slander the
district in a "story" a column long���and  the length  of it
either indicates a lack of efficiency em the part of the
"Sun'-"  news  -tali' or   that   space in  that  paper  possesses

THE SCRIPTURES IM BUSINESS
INTELLIGENT farmers no longer pray (or rain; they
pay for it," ihe slogan of ilie Western Irrigation Congress, came in for severe condemnation al the hands eif
the delegates to the Anglican  Synod at  Calgary.
Canon McMillan, in moving the resolution of condemnation, remarked that Calgary firms especially were
offending in this respect, and cited the slogans of two
local bakeries, one of whom used "the same today, and
forever," and another, "Give us this day our daily bread."
Condemnations so sweeping will scarcely bc regarded
as worthy of the dignity of an Anglican Synod. Many
commercial slogans taken from the Scriptures are being
used these days. Than those from the Book of liieoks,
business men can find no better mottoes under which
tei operate their enterprises.
"Intelligent farmers no longer pray for rain; they pay
for il." was the slogan of the Irrigation Congress. There
is nothing wrong with such a motto. Would prayers
turn the aritl deserts of Southern Alberta into prolific
agricultural areas! Did the prayers eif ihe Mormons
cause the roses to bloom in   thc   alkali    of   Utah! Do
prayers cause the bleached valleys of the Okanagan to
yield  forth their tons of apples anil peaches and grapes!
Prayers without weirks availetli nothing. And in these
days, the agriculturists of Western America realize that
while God lias blessed them with much, yet they 11111-1

If tin- rain ileus not fall on certain portions of Iheir lands,
they do not drop down upon their knees in supplication t
their Maker. Rather, they Use their God-given ability to
bring water to Iheir lands from those portions of the
Cartll that arc liUs-eil with copious rainfalls. The agi'i- j
ctllturist is given certain talents from Heaven. Ile is given
broad acres, sunlight, health, intelligence, in fact, all the
implements necessary.   After that, ii is up to liim to make,

been considered tin1 besl remedy for poor crops; Imt  in
I these times, wiih prayer, it's a matter of irrigating, fertilizing, working.
"Give us This day our Daily Bread," is ilu- slogan nt
a Calgary hake-she.|i. If tin- lueail ibis particular shop
inn,- out is good, wholesome bread, full weight to each
loaf, then there' sheeiild lie no objection lee lhe us.- of the
motto. The line, however, is not particularly appro,

NOTICE  TO   CONSUMERS
Water Works Department
"Those who go a little eleeper than the surface and who
study the psychological aspects, nol only e.f individuals
bul of communities, are thinking that there is some connection between lhe present depression and a strange
wave of emotional religion which is sweeping over South
Vancouver like an epidemic���puzzling and somewhat
alarming those who study the peculiarities of human
nature," continues thc writer. And here is a fine tribute
to the intelligence of the people in Central Park and the
Collingwoods:
"Sects at Central Park.���Take the Central Park and Collingwood districts as typical of other portions of South
Vancouver. Within a small area there are not only churches
belonging to orthodox or well-recognized religious
bodies, but there are meeting places for Seventh Day
Adventists and almost every possible form of religion is
represented, including not only Oriental but white���foi
lowers of Buddha and Confucius, Christian Scientists and
Holy  Rollers.
"It will be remembered that not very long ago the people
in one portion of thc Fraser valley drove out from their
midst some Mormon elders who were doing missionary
work in  their neighborhood.
"Many Emissaries.���The people of South Vancouver���
and especially the Inhabitants of Central Park and Collingwood���remarkable for an indication towards 'strange
religions,' have not resented the intrusions of Mormon
'elders' among them. On the contrary, they appear to
be welcoming the missionaries from Salt Lake City with
open arms.
"For months past two men who. though called 'elders'
are youthful, sauve, and somewhat attractive young men.
have been going from house to house throughout the
district, leaving Mormon literature, and where possible,
talking  Mormon  doctrines  in the Collingwood homes.

HUMOURS OF THE

I.In    Monday :
v;
Granville   Street   South,   Before   Paving
This lias the following attributes :
fl Durability; sure footing for horses; resiliency; noiselessness; easy drainage; dustless-
ness; economy.
<l Bitulithic approaches more closely than any
other the ideal of a perfect pavement.
���I Its notable durability makes it more economical than any other paving.
fl The Vancouver thoroughfares paved with
bitulithic are an impressive object-lesson in
fine paving.
Q Bitulithic has been adopted in over 200 cities
in the United States, and 15 cities in Canada.
Canadians have had an unjust  sen-1 all of you out, if he wished,

riddled with holes and a nest of -.hip's

wile's shoes had been gnawed Into
ribbons   and   some   of   the   children's
new clothes were unrecognizable.    I
write this to give ymi 8 few tips when
sending orders to such distant places
again."
Praiseworthy indeed was the busy
mother who sent an order feer shoes
for the entire family and took such
pains to be exact :
"Dear Sirs.���i hope you can get
along alright in selecting the footwear without numbers. I made my
eight children stand up in their steeck-
ing-fi'ct on blank paper, and I drew
with a lead pencil the size of each
eeiie's foot, going all around, which I
then cut out with the scissors. Then
my husband took off his boots and I
mea-sured for him. Lastly. 1 did the
same myself. Am sending the ten
patterns and give plenty eif room, especially for my husband, as he has a
bunion on his left foot. I hope you

the  following :

li appear- that the paving, both en
the   northern   and   southern   side   of
the track will not be carried on right
up tee the level crossing, but will stop
shorl em each side of thc track where
Joyce   road   is   crossed  by   Vanness

death of Qi "rue' Wyndham onlj a

charming Conservative M P I had

Burns, one of themselves, is the
right man ie. represent them " Aristocratic George Wyndham ��� who
married the Countess Grosvenor���
had been in the Guards. He was
doubtless the handsomest and best
dressed man in the House of Gem-
iniiiis. Anither handsome man 1 remember there wa* Montague Guest,
but that was a long time ago. George
Wyndham seemed much happier
among a gathering of Battersea
working men than he sometimes did
in a West End drawing-room. At a
little dinner eer a "smoker." at the
Shaftesbury Club on Lavender Hill,
where politics were, for the moment,
taboo, I have seen him boisterously
merry with a sweet charming buoyant Bohemianism that was positively
fascinating. More about such gatherings anon.

The work and anxiety he endured
as Irish Secretary from 1900 to 1905.
if I remember rightly, whitened hair
which had been brilliantly black, but
his white hair only accentuated the
beauty of his splendidly chiselled
features, the brilliance of his wonderful eyes, and his fresh complexion.
His fine black soldierly moustache
and his trim alert figure showed him
still youthful and every inch a soldier.
* *   ���
George Wyndham entered the
Guards when only 20. He served at
Suakim: won the gold medal and the
Khedive's star, and retired as lieutenant  in  1885.

with George Wyndham, but no knight
of the age of chivalry could ever be
a more staunch friend and supporter
than he was in any cause that won
his esympathy. We had a terribly
hard fight to get a public librarv for
Battersea. George Wyndham stool

the foundation stone of the Battersea

SIR WILFRID  AT  VANCOUVER
Sir Wilfrid last visited Vancouver in
1910. With him in the car may be

Mayor of Vancouver and Mr. Ewing
Buchan, well known banker. Sir
Wilfred was given a marvellous
greeting by the people of British
Columbia. In the near future the
aged leader will make another tour
to the Pacific Coast.

a gold medalist of the Cobden Club,
land one of the most brilliant exponents of free trade, lie was supreme
in Canada for fifteen years and in all
| that time did nothing to redeem the
pledges of his party on free trade.
A Man of Contradiction
"Hi- opposed confederation and became iis chief Btrength, In opposition he was the advocate of unrestricted reciprocity with the States;
, when In- came into power he dropped
that policy, at the end of fifteen years
| of office In- revived ii and fell fight-
ling in its behalf IK assailed the cor-
I rupi railway policy ol the Macdonald
ministry and saw his own govern-
iin-ni become the instrument of new
railway interests, A man of the highest probity himself, he allowed his
great reputation to be used as a shield
for politicians whose standards were,
to say the last, less delicate than his
own. A French-Canadian, with unquestioned devotion I" that race and
its trflditions, he has done more than
any olher politician to shift the centre
of gravity of Canadian politics from
French Quebec te> the English-speaking West. The indictment might be
lengthened with other equivocal
counts.
"And, to cut a long story short, il
would be idle to deny that Sir Wilfrid is an opportunist. In that he is
mn- to ihe genius of Canadian politics, which have never turned on principles, but on material problems���
railway,  tariffs  and  commercial  trea
ties. If In- i.- condemned it will be
because,    with    great    endowments,
greal power, and true vision, he did
not risk all in order to give Canada a
higher ideal of statesmanship, and i��� >
lurn Ihe currents of ils public life
into better channel-.
What He Achieved
"While there would be a certain
justice in such a verdict, it we mid ignore lhe governing motive of Sir Wilfrid's career, and the magnitude of his
actual achievement. What is that
achievement? It is that he has finally
established the understanding between
the two rail- of the Dominion, which
is the keynote of the arch of Canadian confederacy. Perhaps no one bul
a French-Canadian could have done
this; certainly no one could have done
ii who had nol Sir Wilfrid's laci ami
astuteness, lie- lias had in placate his
compatriots while they have seen the
power of the wesl rising and overshadowing them. He has kept them
loyal in llie British connection, while
seeming to yield a little unwillingly
to courses which that connection Imposed on bis country, He showed no
enthusiasm, for example, for the Boer
war, and seemed to yield to pressure
in sending Canadian contingents to
South Africa, but the result justified
his caution, and later lie defended the
despatch of Canadian troops to the
war againsl  .Mr. B.iurassa, linn leader

THAT   GARDEN   OF   YOUKS
Choosing  Varieties  for  Next  Year
By  Min "Chinook"
Thi- season i- thc time to n leel
the e.n i. ii- - you will wanl t'e grow
next year, whether in the flower or
the vegetable garden Description!
an- of some value and photographs
,1 more, bul you really cannot decide
whether you lil.c any particular special flower, finii "I vegetable unless
yen se it. Of late.- years there has been
;i wonderful development of varieties, so that now among such pi.mis
a- peonies, dahlias, gladioli and
phlox there are hundreds e.f different
sons.
At a recent peony exhibit a single
grower had between two anel three
hundred varieties on the table. Man)
e.i the newer sorts are remarkably
beautiful and most desirable. Yel a
catalogue gives me adequate impression e.f what they are like. The- way
ie. select the varieties which you
would like in grow in your garden
is lo see thein ill bloom.,
11 the garden maker will provide
a notebook dedicated to the garden
and carry it along to every show eir
private display visited, it will be- a
simple matter to list the varieties
of garden products, whether designed
lo please the eye eer the palate-, which
makes the .strongest appeal to him.
Ill this way it is possible to make up
charming color combinations and to
avoid mistakes which might result
from an experiment with flowers not
well known,
Suburban and city dwellers often
have the privilege of attending public
horticultural exhibits, at which the
finest products of hundreds of gardens are sluewn. People in meere remote sections can visit other trardens.
In fact, to lln- garden lover there arc
few  pleasanter   ways   of   Spending  an
occasional day off or even a Sunday
afternoon than in making an excursion to some- well-kept garden een a
large estate where new sorts of llow-
crs and vegetables are tried. Most
garden makers are hospitably in-
clineil and extend a cordial welcome
even to strangers who come with an
honest purpose Often only a request
is needed to gain admittance to private grounds,, where llle gardener
will gladly give the names of plants
and varieties which are not known
to the visitor.
The only way in which to find full
satisfaction in the flowers that one
grows is tre know them by name,
ihen one ceeines to have a friendly
feeling for lhat which was unknown
before; an intimacy is created which
eleiuliles the pleasure of garden making. A rose garden is always a delight, but more so than ever when
you can indicate one flower as Caro-
tne Testout, or another as the beautiful Killarney, or stop to pluck a lovely while Prau Karl Druschki, or discuss intelligently ihe   splendid   new
climbing American Beauty. It is
better to have a lew plants with
which you are on speaking terms, as
it were, than a miscellaneous culle-e--
tinii oi what lo you are just tlowers.
(If late years interest in the iris
lias been greatly stimulated and a
visit to an iris garden will be- a revelation i" those who only know the
common iris eer Hag eef the old-fashioned garden. One grower has twelve pages in bis catalogue devoted i"

Says the other: "How fast you

"1  don't work  fast."
"You do,  too."
"Well, maybe I do. Bul it seems

doesn't like to hurry. I lake my time.
Ye.ii can do a great ileal of embroidery iu a day, you know."
"I   love  I'i  embroider, don't you?"
"It helps lo pass tlu- lime; I embroider all summer long"
"I   do,  too.     I   am  making a  lot  eif

A Disgrace to the Province
Scathing condemnation e.f the pro-
iiiui.il governmenl jail at Xew Westminster was handed down hy the
grand jury, last week, when they ended their labors tor this session of the
assizes. Their opinion of the provincial courthouse iu the Royal City
is also condemnatory. Only for the
insane asylum and the labeir colony
feir prisoners had lhe grand jury any
good at all.
Briefly their verdict on the provincial jail i.s that the place is beyond

Mr.   Bailey   is   Surprised   at   Recent
Letter   Attacking   Central   Park
Churchman
To  the  Editor  of  thc  "Chinook" :
Sir,���1 am not surprised that "Parishioner" omitted to attach his name
to the rambling effusion that appeared in thc form of a letter in your issue of the 19th itiistant, and which is
headed "A Congregation being kept
from their Church," but I am surprised that the "Chinook" should publish
under a Norn de Plume such an uncalled for attack on a gentleman who
is much respected by those who
know him.
It may be admitted that the congregation at St. John's is small (aes is
usual during the summer months)
and that the finances are not as flourishing as could be desired, but that is
the fault of the absent and delinquent
members of the congregation and
certainly not of the Rector, and in
any event does not justify such
sweeping and rash statements that
appear in  the letter referred  to.
The remarks concerning the form
of service and the choir are matters
which can be dealt with at any public
meeting of the congregation or church
committee, and it is quite unnecessary
that we should attract the public attention to our little differences by
airing them in the public press.���
Yours, etc., H. S. BAILEY.

there is a reservoir nf intelligent experience that is seldom tapped for the
benelil nf the community. Two serious results nf this economic waste
are: First, definite loss tn iln- community in knowledge ni the wishes of

opinion and the danger of passional.-
moved  the  Industrial  Committee "f
the Progress Club In send out 243
schedules of questions to representative business men nf Vancouver on
the industrial conditions nf this province. It lias been recognized for
some lime that our industrial salvation depends upon two possibilities:
An adequate treatment of the agricultural problem and the founding of
a great payroll so that the manufacturing eef .mr daily necessities shall
be stimulated and employment be
found feer our own people and the
ever increasing stream of immigrants.
It  was natural and  sensible to ask:

to Improve conditions?
9. Could you suggest any steps that
this club could take, which ynu  think
would stimulate local consumption
of Vancouver-made goods, or in any
other way promote industrial development?
II). Kindly mention any other
points bearing upon the questions
stated tee which yeeu think attention
ought   to  be directed.
Fifty Replies
It  will  be  noticed  that  the aim  of
these  questions  is  three  fold :     First
tee accumulate trustworthy statistics
of local manufacture; second, to ascertain the number and kinds of allied trades that exist or might he
founded tei supply the manufacturers
needs, and third, that most important, to tind out what the manufacturer is thinking about industrial Vancouver.
In response to 243 inquiries 50 answers have been received. One of the
difficulties of a public information
bureau is Illustrated by this fact, Out
of 243 manufacturers 193 have nol

that have been received contain much

opinion, are the chief obstacles in the
industrial development of Vancouver?" i.s the need for cheap industrial
sites. No fewer than 75 per cent of
the answers to this question put the
high cist of land as the chief obstacle to industrial development in Vancouver, anil many nf them are in accord with the suggestion that definite
industrial centres should he created
on the initiative of the city council.
It is evident that the time is due for
some definite step to he taken on
these lines. The difficulty of doing
this on individualistic lines and in
piece-meal fashion is so manifest that
there is not a single objection to organized municipal action. The trend
of thought is all in the direction of
an industrial district.
Cheaper Power
Xext in importance of emphasis is
the necessity for cheaper power. It
is pointed out again and again that
rapid and profitable development in
manufacture is impossible until the
charges for power are reduced and
brought into line with those of other
cities. If we could say, it is argued,
that we had the cheapest power in
Canada���as we should be able to say
against loyalty te. home manufacture.

ple of foreign birth are accustomed

Country e.f their birth and iln nol usually change tn local products, Much
education, ii is suggested, is necessary to generate ill our people loyally
to their own products such as is cus-
ii'inary in the eastern provinces.
"They do not realize," it is said, "or
appreciate that little or no goods
manufactured here can be sold in
foreign markets or eastern Canada at
the present time and that a manufacturer in this province (mice he has
a good article at the right price)
must have thc loyal support of his
'iwn people. They talk about payrolls
bul do nothing to support them."
Cost of Labor
Fourteen out of fifty of the replies
mention,the high cost of labor as one
of the chief obstacles to industrial
development, but in some cases it
is recognized that this itself is due to
the high ce.st of living and that this
again is due to the large consumption
of foreign goods, many of which
might be produced here. Somebody
has to pay the duty and the freight.
