Municipal Clerks and Officials
To Form an Association
Municipal Officials Throughout Lower Mainland Invited
by Burnaby to Join Proposed Organization
\ movement has been initiated al
lhe Burnaby Municipal Hall, Edmonds, of considerable interest to
,. her municipalities, This is the
pi posed formation of an association
of municipal clerks, treasurers, asses-ors and' accountants of the lower
mainland. It is believed that an or.
utilization of the kind would prove
i.iluablc in dealing with mailers reeling to municipal law, and that the
best methods of municipal accounting could be discussed and agreed
upon, to the mutual advantage of the
members  of  the  association.
With these objects in view a letter
has been drawn up and signed by
Messrs. W. Griffiths, comptroller; A.
J. Moore, clerk; W. II. Griffin, collector, G. II. Steffens, assessor and
R. Bolton, accountant, the Burnaby
officials with whom the proposed association originated. Copies of the
letter have been sent to thc officials
of the various municipalities of the
lower mainland, Including Vancouver, New Westminster, South Vancouver, Point Grev, Richmond,
North Vancouver. Surrey. Langley,
Coquitlam, Port Moody and the
Fraser Valley generally. The following  is   the   letter   referred   to:
Dear Sir:��� Thc formation of an
Association of Municipal Clerks,
Treasurers, Assessors and Accountants having recently been mooted,
and  the  suggestion appears  to  have
received favorable comment, a copy
of this letter is being forwarded to
all Mich municipal officers on the lower mainland. If Sufficient favorable  replies are received a meeting
will be called in the near future to
discuss the matter thoroughly and
we should therefore be pleased to
harn if you would be in favor e,f the
formation of such an association.
An organization of this nature
would prove valuable as all matters
pertaining to municipal law could be
thoroughly discussed and the best
methods of municipal accounting
could be mutually agreed upon and
wc have no doubt any recommendations from the associatinn would receive very favorable consideration by
thc   Attorney-General.
The association would eventually,
we believe, materially advance the in-
terests of its members in the same
manner as other organizations of a
similar   nature.
Real Printing vs. Botch Printing
Of all creatures on the face of earth, the botch is most aggravating,
troublesome, tiresome and wretched.
Of all botches on the face of earth, the botch printer probably
causes most profanity, irritation, fatigue, wretchedness, worry and
loss of money and of time.
Notices to the Electors of South Vancouver regarding money bylaws being submitted have been posted throughout the District.
Ratepayers who read these large posters will notice that some have
been produced by printers who botched the job. They will notice that
pen and ink were required to rectify most inexcusable errors.
Notice who printed these Bylaw posters. The botch jobs were
done outside the Municipality. Those posters from the presses of
South Vancouver's own printing company, The Greater Vancouver
Publishers Limited, were turned out with no greater care for detail
than is usually shown in the turning out of work by this particular
firm.

Board   of Trade  Favors
Canadian Northern Ry. Tunnel
It  wa-   decided at Monday's meet- jcific engineers will start in a few days
ing of the South Vancouver Hoard of
Trade tee ask the Canadian Northern
Railway to build its tunnel from lhe
north arm of the Fraser to False
Creeli through South Vancouver instead of Burnaby.
Accordingly Mr. R. C. Hodgson,
president of thc Hoard of Trade, was
appointed to represent the board on
a committee which will interview both
the Attorney-General and the railway
Officials with this object in view.
The suggestion was made in the
course of the discussion that the
municipality grant the C. N. R. a free
right-of-way.
Mr. II. B. A. Vngcl, who introduced the matter, said it was of the utmost importance ,to South Vancouver
tlint the railway should go through
the municipality and he said it would
pay to offer a free right-of-way for
the railway to Victoria Drive. Ile
pointed out that lhe road is in the
���entrc of the North Arm harborage
ind he predicted that in the very
near future there would be a good
leal of freight to be moved from the
��� eirth   Win.
\fter some discussion it was dene ed to appoint Mr. R. C. Ueidgsiin,
thr president, as a committee to work
ni conjunction with the council to try
I" influence the Canadian Northern
R ilway   to     favorably     consider     a
heme for entering False Creek from
ie municipality
With reference to the above dis-
ussion, it was stated on enquiring at
he C. N. R. offices on Wednesday,
hat nothing had been finally decided
is to the tunnel. It i.s stated, how-
ver, that the Canadian Northern Pa-
uiul.r (he direction of T. II. White,
the chief engineer of that company, to
survey the country between False
Creek and New Westminster with a
view to determining the location of
the four-mile tunnel, which will bring
the main line of that railway from
the Fraser Kiver into the terminals
at  False Creek.
This action has been ordered by
T. (',. Ileelt, the chief executive of the
Canadian    Northern    Pacific,    upon
telegraphic instructions from Sir
Donald Mann, who returned to Toronto from Ottawa for the week-end
and immediately fulfilled his promise
of promptly supplementing the action
of thc ratepayers of Vancouver if it
was favorable on the False Creek bylaw.
11 has been proposed that the Inn-
nel start from a point in Burnaby
township near the north arm of the
Fraser and will extend almost to
False Creek, so that little actual land
will have to be purchased It is the
intention tn put a large force of engineers at the work in order that the
plans may he prepared wilh all pnssi-
ble speed, ami it is Imped that work
on the tunnel will be able to be started early in the coming fall. In this
event it will be vigorously pressed all
winter and will bc of great value in
solving lhe labor problem during the
usually slack season next winter.
It is understood that the tunnel will |"
be electrified and that practically all
the traffic from Port Mann into Vancouver will bc drawn by qlc-ctric locomotives. Certainly this will bc the
case in the tunnel and at the Vancouver terminals.
Tuesday was the last day nf the
time officially allotted feer Commissioner Crehan's public enquire' into the
public affairs nf South Vance.uver.
inn ai ihere are still some 'few matters which have not been finally dealt
with, the commissioner has appointed
Tuesday. April 8, a- the last elay nf
the investigation. It is understood
that Commissioner Crehan's report of
the proceedings has tn be delivered tn
iln rovernment not later than May 15.
Sei far the enquiry has lasted about
ine months and there have been about
350   witnesses   examined.
Although the precise cost of thc
enquiry is not yet known, it will probably reach about $20,0(10. The commissioner staled abeeut the time of the
municipal elections, that the cost
would not be greater than $16,000.
Since that time several matters have
been investigated which were not expected, and the cost has been increased by probably another $4000, so that
in ail probability the total cost nf
lhe enquiry will be nol less than $20.-
ooo. This amount, however, de.es not
include the fees nf the official stenographer, which average about $25
a day.
The record nf lhe court's proceedings and a transcript of the stenographer's nntes comprises 1.200 feelieis
nf 225 words. These notes include
lhe evidence of 250 witnesses who
have been on the stand during the
past nine months.
It is stated that the principal work of
the commissioner, ha- met been transacted during the public part of his in.
vestigation, but in the accountancy
and clerical departments. This work
has necessitated the employment of
eight accountants each day and among
other duties devolving upeeii them has
been that of checking 160,000 entries
on the tax  roll.
When Commissioner Crehan opened his enquiry inte, tlie affairs of the
municipality there appeared no doubt
that the clerical work was in a state
of chaos owing te, the rapid growth
of the work, rendering efficiency and
accuracy almost impossible. The energies nf the commissioner's staff have
been largely devolved tei clearing up
and straigthening out various matters
connected with the tax roll and clerical work generally.
Councillor Thomas stated this week
that he doubted whether the enquiry
would ceest meere than the commissioner's estimate at the end of last
year, $16,000. -Bul." he said, "even
if it costs ihe municipality $20,000 it
is money well spent, because matters
are now put upon a proper basis and
the organization of the official staff
is far better than il was when the
commissioner took hold eef affairs."
It is estimated that ..ver 175.000
words have hen taken down and trans-
scribed by ihe official stenographer
eluring the enquiry.

HOARD OF TRADE
DISCUSS INCORPORATION
Matter   to
Lie   on   Table
Months.
for   Six
At the South Vancouver Board of
Trade meeting on Monday. Mr. H. B.
V Vogel brought forward the qucs-
lion of incorporation.
In the course of his remarks, Mr.
Vogel argued that a Greater Vancouver would be brought, about much
more expeditiously by the formation
of outside cities on the borough system. These cities, he said, could
subsequently amalgamate more readi-
lj than would be the case with municipalities. He suggested that the old
incorporation bill be resurrected.
Following the discussion, a vote
was taken as to whether the matter
of incorporation should be laid on lhe
table for six months or whether it
should be allowed to lie on the table
*? be taken up at some Opportune
���'tne. That the matter should lie
��1 the table was the result of the vote.
B. C. E. R. Work
A large gang of men is being employed by the B. C. E. R��� laying
Conduits around the substation at
''���arls Road. These conduits are being
a|d in all directions to avoid over-
lu"'l wiring which would assume conquerable proportions if the company
adopted this method of running out

B. C. E. R. TO ERECT
NEW SUBSTATION
Structure  Will be  Built on Bodwell
Road Near Main Street
Plans have been prepared by the B.
C. H. R. for the erection of a new substation on their property on Bodwell
Road near Main Street. The new
structure will cost in thc neighborhood of $90,000. The company is
merely awaiting an adjustment of a!
number eif property matters before
starting work on the structure.
Thc new sub-station will be of reinforced concrete, one storey high
with a gallery for switching apparatus.
The electrical equipment will consist
of three motor generator sets of 1000
KW capacity each and a transforming
equipment i\f 7000 KW capacity. The
purpose of the new sub-station will
be for regulating the light and power
requirements   of the  locality.
Power will be received from the
new receiving station which is being
erected .iy the B. C .E. R. in D. L.
118, Burnaby. The new sub-station
will be practically identical with the
new sub-station which is being erected by the B. C. E. R. on Maro Street

Mr. Wilbers stated that hc was trying to keep in touch with the Municipality as a whole, as he realized lhe

Mr. Sinclair wished to know if the

DISCUSS TRAM QUESTION
Mr.
The
iincil al il- meeting this week
gave serious consideration to the
question "I abolishing the ward system. This somewhat unexpected turn
of events took place upon the bringing iu eef a bylaw to thai effect which
wa- given twee readings. Thc matter nf redistribution was decided some
time ago. this was going further. A
long and minute discussion resulted
Upon Ihe matter, various councillors
giving iheir views at considerable

previously given notice uf his intention tn introduce such a measure. He
did not. however, wish to press for the
abolition of the present system if
some plan nf redistribution cnuld be
arrived at satisfactory t" the majority
of the council.
Councillor Fau-Vel declared that
until the matter of redistribution was
settled any further motion was out
of order, but upon a vote being taken
on this point the council decided by
a majority; it was carried with but two
dlssentent votes, those nf Councillor
Fau-Vel and Councillnr McDonald.

There appears tn be cause fur complaint in Burnaby relative to the taking away uf stakes placed in the
ground for the purposes of the special
survey of the municipality which is
now going nn. The pnlice have been
instructed tn make enquiries and if
necessary tu prosecute. Seriuus penalties already attach to the breaking
of the law in this respect, yet in one
ward alone five stakes have been removed. It is intended by Messrs.
Cleveland and Cameron who are making the present survey that the wooden stakes now in use shall bc replaced
by some more permanent sign to
mark the district hits.
A   *   *
The council has also considered the
question nf raising ornamental metal
power and light poles along Kings-
way from Tenth Avenue to Edmonds,
but the expense would be too heavy.
As a substitute the light and fire
cuinmittee has decided lu erect wooden poles, painted, the B. C. E. being
willing���it was understood���to bear
part of the cost. Sixty-eight poles
are required, and in metal thc lowest
price would be $45 each, the cost of
fixing being additional, and they
would also require setting in a concrete bed. Therefore, for the present square wooden painted light standards will be erected wherever they
are considered to be necessary.

The 1909 B. C, E. R. Franchise Bill

will have the opportunity of casting
their vote on this much-discussed and
important matter. If the B. C. E. R.

turn will undertake tn construct two
miles nf car lines in Xorth Burnaby,
and also agree to a reduction of 20
per cent, in settler's rates on the Central Park line. Burnaby is by no
means unanimous in its opinion upon
the matter, a considerable part of the
municipality believes that much more
than two miles should be constructed,

days, be able to announce the sale nf
bunds amounting to something over
$1,100,000. Tenders fur thc purchase
of the bunds were opened a few days
ago by the council and negotiations
are now under way which it is thought
will tie brought to a successful issue.
Of the amount of bonds something
like $625,000 are nf the 1912 issue and
approximately $500,000 were passed in
bylaws at  the beginning of the year.

Vogel    of   South   Vancouver is
Oppcsed to the Franchise.
On   Tuesday
held  under the       ^^^^^^^^
Six Ratepayers Progressive Association, McKay. Burnaby, a committee
was formed tn take steps throughout
ihe municipality to oppose the sub-
niissiieii again uf the street railway
franchise tu the people and tu consider ihe possibility uf issuing an injunction against the council tn show
why the case should nut be appealed
to the  Privy Council. The committee
appointed by President VV T. Wilson,
was as follows: Messrs. Skinner and
Dekker, of Ward One. and Messrs.
Winch and J. Murray, of Ward Six.
Mr. H. B. A. Vogel, of South Vancouver, said he spoke as a property
owner in Hurnaby, and Imped in a
shurt time tei become a resident of the
municipality. Therefore, he said, lie
was naturally interested in the transportation question in Burnaby. He declared they must look at a matter of
this sort as a kind of bargain, and
consider what they wcre going to re,
ceive for what they were giving way.
He compared the Point Grey franchise with the proposed Burnaby
agreement, to the detriment 'of the
latter, and declared that Point Grey
received the terms it had because they
want to wurk in regard to it in a businesslike way. The Smith Vancouver franchise he characterized as a
pannicky one, and said in this respect
it was like that of Burnaby. All over
the world, he said, electric cars were
;e,iug nut nf date, and motor busses
could bc run cheaper than electric
ai's. he asked what sense there wai
n tieir.g the municipality up for 4(
.cars. Other municipalities, he de
.land found ways and means of hav
ing a municipal service, and if lh.
.Municipal Clauses Acl would nut al
mi' uf that the joint municipalities
ihould g'i to the governmenl and demand lhat the act be amended,
Mr   1'..  E.  Winch  suggested  that a
eeiiimiltee   be   funned   uf   represent;!-
ivis   freun   lhe   various   wards   tu  oppose the bylaw'.
Mr. J. D. Rnss said it seemed lo
him thai an injunction Could be taken
out against the council submitting the
bylaw. It was the duty nf the council,
hc declared, lo carry out the wish of
the people, and that was In carry the
appeal  to thc  Privy  Council.
Mr. Wright asked why the company
did nut build lines in Burnaby if it
considered the franchise was legal.
Ile thought they could question the
right of the council to submit the
franchise to the people in face of thc
referendum  that  had been  taken.
Mr. Skinner considered the bargain
was a very one-sided one fur the
municipality, and thought they could
get much better terms by remaining
free to negotiate with other companies
than by tying themselves up. Then,
he said, if they gave away the franchise they would not be able to take
advantage of the cheaper systems
that were coming In, the company
would have that advantage. He considered the franchise should provide
for the construction nf lines within
a certain time, with, at least, a five
cent fare and a fifteen minute service.

Classical   Concert  at   Collingwood
There was a musical treat at Collingwood when a concert was given
by the Ladies' Aid of the Collingwood East Methodist Church. The
artistes were : Miss Clara Winder,
A.R.C.M.; Mrs. Gilbert W. Hall, Miss
Heather, Mr. Magnus Irvin, Mr. Gilbert W. Hall, Miss A. M. Ramsden
and  Edward  E.  Harper, Mus.  Doc.
The programme included selections
from the following classical composer! : Pinsuti, Barniceitt, Raff,
Wallace, Braga, Tosti, Sullivan,
Maude Valerie White, Mascagni,
and Leslie Stuart. Every item was
splendidly rendered. The playing eif
Dr.   Harper   was  a   revelation.     Miss
Heather  recited  magnificently.    She
has added Kipling's "If" to her extensive repertoire. Encores were
numerous, and needless to say Mr.
and Mrs. Gilbert W. Hall (who were
chiefly  responsible  for  the  program)
There was a good attendance at the
Collingwood Parliament on Saturday
nighl. Some new members wcre
elected���tilling vacancies. The cross-
benches raised some rather copious
objections to the elections, but the
Prime Minister said, and the Leader
of the Opposition agreed, that every
necessary form had been observed.
During thc evening the "member for
Comox was very critical and persistent as to points of order. He reminded the "member for Nelson" of
clock which kept on striking���not
to convey information as to the time
but because there was something
wrong  with  the  works."
"Parliament" on Saturday opened
in proper form. The members made
a "declaration" pledging loyalty to
the "Constitution," and Mr. W. J.
Burgess, who has been appointed
"Chaplain" followed with a very
simple form of Prayer, The House
standing passed a vote of sympathy
with Dayton and the other flooded
districts of the U. S. A., moved in
feeling and eloquent terms by Prime
Minister. Mr. W. Morris. The House
unanimously agreed to receive (this
Saturday evening) a deputation of
ladies from the "Pioneer" office who
will urge that legislation is needed
to better protect the interests of
women.
The Governor-General (Councillor
Wilbers) attended and received' a
hearty welcome in an admirable manner. The Governor-General read the
following King's Speech :
Gentlemen of the House of Commons : It has been a source of the
deepest satisfaction to me to see the
almost Universal prosperity which
reigns throughout the Dominion, and
to witness the energy and enterprise
'hich are shown in the developing
f the rich resources of the country.
The revenues of the Dominion continue to expand, and in every branch
if business and industry there is a
remarkable activity which gives assurance   of   continued   progress   and
prosperity.
A copious and welcome stream of
immigration is pouring into our
country; I am pleased that with His
Imperial Majesty of Japan's Governmenl proper arrangements have been
made placing thc control of immigration from this source at the discretion of the Canadian Government.

Cups for Collingwood
In thc bright vocabulary of Collingwood there is no such word as
"fail."
When the Collingwood football
men made up their minds that they
wanted two cups then they got thein
���that's all! No! not quite; the cups
were presented on Wednesday night
at the Collingwood Institute at one
of those pleasant Socials for which
the Institute is famous. W G. Hcarn-
don, manager of the Collingwood
Football club was in the chair, and
he warmly thanked Mr. Lewington,
of South Hill, for the interest he had
shown iu South Vancouver's healthy
spo: Mr. Lewington in presenting
"Tlie Peoples' Trust" cup eulogised
g'eod e'ean sport as of benefit to the
C.immunity. Councillor Wilbers. in
tli- absence of Reeve Kerr, presented
the. chrb with the "Municipal Cup,"
wi, "'h he said had been well earned.
Mi.   Wilbers  also  eloquently    advo-
based mi thc most progressive
thought and commend your serious
attention legislation which shall provide pensions for the old citizens,
who have fought the battle of life in
the prime of their manhood, and arc
now unlit and unable to carry on
their  share  of  thc  country's  work.
You will realize the necessity of
legislation for the betterment of the
conditions of the laborer in your
midst and also the urgent need of
legislation which shall assist the
Provinces in facilitating and developing the education of the young that
the future people of my Dominion
may always be in the forefront in
achievement and general intelligence.
I anticipate the select committee
will furnish you with complete data
upon which to found wise and equitable measures governing the sale and
distribution of pure food.
In the short time at your disposal
I would more particularly direct your
attention to thc duty incumbent upon
you for providing naval defence for
the protection of your great inheritance. Regarding this a bill will be
presented  to  you  immediately.
1 invite your earnest consideration
of the subjects to which I have alluded and I invoke the Divine Providence upon your deliberations.
The member for Nelson (J. Francis
Bursill) inaugurated a very lively debate. He took the speech clause by
clause, contending that it gave promise of useful legislation. The speech
was cheered and was complimented
from the Minister of Militia and Defence (Mr. Gerald McGeer) who followed. It may here be mentioned
that the Cabinet is not yet complete,
a full list will be published next week.
The Minister of Militia and Defence
alluded to a naval program he will
initiate, by resolution.
Mr. Tom Todrick moved an amendment to the "speech from the throne,"
the effect of which was to pledge the
Government to encourage immigration from Great Britain. This amendment was cheerfully accepted by the
Government. The Opposition and
the Cross Benches criticised the
"speech from the throne" as "disappointing and inadequate". The debate was adjourned. A deluge uf
questions, to quote the Premier's
words, ails poured in on the Governmenl, and there was promise given
of a very lively session this Saturday night.

Active Realty Market
One of the best known realty firms
in South Vancouver is Fletcher and
Brett with offices at Collingwood
East. During the past couple of
weeks this firm has put on the market a new subdivision on the car
track one block west of the Collingwood East station. Eight of these
lots have already been sold by this
firm, which is probably thc best kind
of evidence that the realty market of
South Vancouver is active to a considerable degree. These lots lie in a
choice subdivision, and with prices
that are very attractive the chances
are that the remaining eight lots will
be snapped up within the next few
days.
Considerable activity is reported by
this firm, not only in the sale of lots,
but also in the turnover of houses.
They report the incoming of many
newcomers to the Collingwood district which is recognized as one of
the best districts in South Vancouver.
The firm of Fletcher and Brett
have been in business since January
1. 1912. Mr. Brett having purchased

Correspondence
To the Editor of "The Chinook" :
Sir,���Will you allow me to ask all
ratepayers in South Vancouver, in
favor of clean Municipal government
and annexation, to come out and vote
against the proposed Loan Bylaws,
because so long as you let these fellows keep what an ex-School Trustee
called "an open barrel of money wiih
power to help themselves," we will
not get annexation, and our property
will continue to depreciate in value.
It is South Vancouver officials and
them only who are to blame for annexation not being an accomplished
fact, and as one who knows, I challenge the Reeve and Council to meet
mc before the ratepayers and dispute
that fact.
If you let them waste any more
funds, the city may refuse to accept
the municipality.

Evangelistic Meetings
A special series of meetings, conducted by Mr. John Smith, of Aberdeen, Scotland, and Mr. W. P. Douglas, of Peterborough, Out., two well
known evangelists, will be held in the
Gospel Hall, corner of Westminster
Road and Welwyn Street, commencing Sunday evening at 7.30, and continuing each following night at 8.00.
Among thc subjects treated will be
"Man's Need" and "God's Remedy."
Scats are free and there will be no
collection.
As the day lengthens the call of {
mountain and stream will come with
lrrcsistablc force to many. Somt
are already beginning lo bush their
flies and see that their reels and lines
are in order, rods being tested, wading stockings inspected. Thoughts
of holidays are coming to one and
all, already the anticipation is a
source of pleasure. Many a dream
is formed, many a castle in the air
is built though they may never materialize. Yet to the dreamer they
bring their pleasure and it's a question whether in the anticipation or
the realization brings the greatest
pleasure. *    *    *
With the coming* of the good
weather there is a quickening of
business life within the municipality.
At first it comes as the small waves
of a rivulet upon a placid sheet of
water. The larger waves will follow the smaller till the greatest flows
on with full force. So will it be
during the end of the summer and
next winter with business in the
municipality. Already indications
point that thc lethargetic sleep is
passing away and a period of animation is at hand. Those who know
best predict a fair time of industrial
activity.
*      *      A
Our civic fathers must be on the
alert to welcome every industry and
see that what business they have is
given to South Vancouver firms. We
have confidence that the council
themselves make every effort to retain as much of the business as they
can within the municipality.
*    ��    ��
The Board of Trade have plenty
of work on hand at present. All
thc various committees arc busy with
problems that affect the vitality of
the municipality. Their work is
carried on silently but irresistably.
The public never dream eif the
amount of work this body get
through,     Various committees    are
trying to locate railways, another is
looking into the franchise so that
the council's hands niay be forced to
bring pressure on thc B. C. E. Railway company. Another committee
is looking into the best merits of
those who are applying for a gas
franchise, whilsc the pres I'cnt is in
Victoria trying to enlist the sympathies of the Attorney-General in
an industrial proposition. Another
committee is gathering data for a
civic electric plant, while still another committee is dealing with postal and telephone service. It is entirely due to the Board of Trade that
the postal service was secured for
South Vancouver and at present they
are busy agitating to have the deliveries extended to Collingwood and
Central  Park.

Collingwood Liberals assumed the
reins of government last Saturday,
Councillor Wilbers, Lieutenant-Gen-
eral, was received by the House with
all due decorum. After reading the
King's speech he retained his seat
in the stranger's gallery till the close
of the meeting. The more one
visits this parliament the better it is
appreciated. A feeling of good comradeship seems to flow throughout
the whole membership. There are
some really good speakers and many
promising youngsters. However
there is an over enthusiasm in some
of the young members to be on the
floor. Those of the older school
wefio like to see the younger hands
trying their nratorial powers must
sometimes feel annoyed at the
"points  of  order"  raised.
A needless waste of time is lost,
both bv the party who is wandering
from the point of debate and the
party challenging. Often ten minutes
is lost in getting at what is really
meant. This valuable time is taken
perhaps  from  some  young but  diffi
dent speaker who waits on a lull in
the flow of oration to get an eepee-
ing in. We have confidence 'ii
Speaker Kent that he will now firmly rule these points of order and interjections, Premier Morris who
carried wilh him thc confidence of I -
party and also the cross benches will
bring in such legislation that will
down in the annals of history as i
great   Collingwood   Legislation.

A feeling of satisfaction prcv led
the Municipal Hall last Friday e en-
ing at the meeting of the Ce ntral
Parliament. Good progress was in.nee
and a better understanding was arrived at among the members. \l in
business was accomplished withoul
any friction than had been a. mi
pushed the whole of the pre ms
sittings. Undoubtedly the Central
Parliament have some really ( od
speakers, and that many will make
their debut as orators is plainly si. n.
There are, however, some of the
members who are forever on tl "ir
feet to instruct the meeting as tu iti
mode of procedure. Whilst ' e
members appreciate such knowl ge
being given to thein yet the tin n
bers like the child think it should
be taught to run till it is able 10

Rose-Leaf Beads.
lhe art of making beads from rose
leaves was for a long time lost, but
within recent years it has been revived
and there are ne>�� in this country persons possessing the secret fi turning
..in   these beads.
Tlu tradition is thai when the Crusaders returned from thc East num-
bers of them were possessed of the
secrel of making attar of roses. A
factory for the manufacture of this
perfume was set up near an Italian
convent The perfume was made and
the rose pulp remaining was discarded
as worthless. The nuns gathered up
this odorous mass and by experiment
developed the art of making from it
beads for iheir rosai i,-.

These juices are poured back upon thc

black color which is eventually seen
in the beads.

harden for another day. A wire or a
hat-pin may be used to pierce tin-
beads through the center and tin
beads may be left upon the wire or tin
pin to harden.
For twcnty-fo;:- hours the mass remains on the pan, being occasionally
turned and stirred with a knife in order that every portion of the mass may
be brought in contact with  the iron.

HOME INDUSTRIES
I T may be assumed that it is the desire of every resident
i of South Vancouver to see the municipality progress.
It is not always realized, however, that one of the most
essential factors in such prosperity is the patronage of
home industries. Other things being equal, it seems
only reasonable to expect residents to buy their goods
in South Vancouver in preference to elsewhere. There
are some people, however, who through indifference to
local requirements, or perhaps, through mere thoughtlessness, purchase outside various articles which can be
obtained equally well as regards price and quality in
South Vancouver.
The cultivation of a reasonable "local patriotism" is
not to bc despised. It is really a matter of mutual consideration between the resident purchaser and the
tradesman. The interests of both are bound up in the
welfare of the municipality. It is, therefore, obvious
that any trade diverted from the stores of South Vancouver is prejudicial to the wealth of thc whole community,
"Vhether it be groceries, clothes or any other kind of
ommodity, it is only fair lhat local tradesmen should
e supported by residents in South Vancouver. There
re now in the municipality a number of well equipped
.tores, but these are obliged to compete with possibly
larger business organizations elsewhere. Like other residents of the municipality these store-keepers have a
stake in South Vancouver, and as it is in their own interests, they undoubtedly give their bet services in
meeting local requirements.
This encouragement, and where possible, preferential
treatment of local stores, suggests also the question of
the consideration of tenders. Where work has to be
done within the municipality it is surely not too much to
expect that, even where the tender is not the lowest, it
would be sound policy to give local tenders, when the
condition of good work is guaranteed, favorable if not
preferential consideration. This policy has been followed
in more than one municipality in- the province. It is
based on the principle that everything that encourages local enterprise tends to the benefit of the whole municipality.
FIRE PROTECTION
.""HE trite dictum that prevention is better than cure is
perhaps more applicable to fires than any other
public or private calamity. Any action, therefore, that
tends to ensure immunity from fire deserves public support. At present there is a special bylaw for the prevention of fires under the consideration of the council.
This bylaw will give the fire department authority to
inspect buildings within the municipality with a view
to recommending, when  necessary, certain  precautions.
Chief Lester takes the very sensible view that much can
be done in preventing tires by periodical inspections of
buildings. Many fires take place through stores being
placed too near wooden walls or furniture, or in such a
position as to render the sudden ignition of surrounding
objects a matter of danger. Stove pipes are sometimes
fixed up in a loose and defective manncc and in such a
position as to invite displacement. Another frequent
cause of fires is the accumulation of inflammable rubbish in
basements near furnaces. Sometimes cans or barrels
of oil are placed in close proximity to furnaces and
stoves. A case occurred recently in an Ontario town
building in which several kegs or jars of deadly explosives
were stored in the furnace room, with disastrous results.
It, therefore, often requires men experienced in fighting fires to foresee the inevitable or likely consequences
of the inadequate protection ol buildings from fire. By
the periodical inspection of buildings as proposed in the
bylaw referred to. such defects as are dangerous can
be remedied and other precautions taken to obviate
disaster. It is possible that some people may object to
such inspection under the impression that alterations
in lhe building will be demanded costing much expense.
Any fear of that kind is groundless, or at least exaggerated: and in any case the recommendations made by the
fire officers are entirely in the interests of the owners or
occupiers of the building.
A GREAT FINANCIER
ROBABLY the greatest financier the United States
has ever produced, the late J. Pierpont Morgan was
,.ot one of the ruthless and unscrupluous market wreckers
of the Jay Gould and Gates type. He was pre-eminently
of sound and conservative financial views. Although
not altogether divorced from what are commonly called
American methods of finance, Mr. Morgan was nearer
the British ideal of a capitalist than thc average American
money king. He was the Rothschild of America. He
was the one man in whom the United States had entire
confidence when a financial crisis arose. More than once
he has averted grave financial disasters in which the
prosperity of the whole of the United States seemed to
be involved. Not the least of these public services to
his native country was his successful intervention during
the panic of 1907, his arrangements with the United
States treasury having prevented thc collapse of many
financial institutions.
Mr. Pierpont Morgan did not confine his activities to
���the financial world. He was a very liberal and broad
minded man. He was a great traveler and keenly inter
-ested in the conditions of the countries he periodically
visited. He was a great admirer of British institutions
and made the Old Country his second home. In London
he owned a palatial house which was a favorite residence
during his later years. He was persona grata with
European Royalty and a friend of all the best known
social and intellectual leaders of London, Paris and
Berlin.
The late financier had, also, very active artistic and literary sympathies. It is even averred that like Frederick
'.he Great and Warren Hastings, both active men of
iffairs, he was fond of writing poetry. At any rate, he
was a great patron of literature and art, being an  en
thusiastic collector of e,ld books, rare editions, manuscripts, ami all the old art masterpieces he could buy for
hive and money. He ransacked all lhe galleries, private
collections and art shops of Europe, and probably spent
more money in art treasurer! than any other individual
during the past couple of decades. lie was at the same
lime a liberal donor lee varieetis public museums and art
galleries in both the United States and Europe, while
hospitals and other charitable institution! received many
benefaction! from the late financier.
MUNICIPAL SYSTEMS
DURING the sessions oi the Municipal Commission in
Vancouver,  Victoria,  New  Westminster  and  other
cities, last  summer,  various  suggestions  were  offered  as
to the improvement e.f municipal government     One of
the systems strongly advocated was government by commission, and another was the devolution of various
branches of work to executive committees. The latter
system has been extensively adopted in the Old Country
and is understood to work with considerable success.
Mr. Thomas Prentict of Messrs. J. B. Todrick & Co.,
Central Park, who has recently returned from a visit to
Scotland appears to be favorably impressed with thc civic
or local government of the large industrial centres of the
Old Country. In Glasgow, for instance, he found that
the different branches of city corporation work was
turned over to special executive committees. These
committees gathered data and perpared estimates of work
contemplated, which information was typewritten, a copy
being banded to each member of the council. Time was
thus given for all the members to become thoroughly
familiar with the proposed work. The council having
passed the estimates it devolved upon the executive committee to superintend the execution of the work.
Indications of great business activity and general prosperity throughout the Old Country were observed by
Mr. Prentice during his visit, and on his return to the
Dominion  he  was  much impressed  with  the  nourishing
nditions evident in the west.
GRAIN ELEVATORS
THE recent visit of the Board of Grain Commissioners
to tlie Pacific Coast lias stirred up considerable
rivalry among various municipalities for thc location of
the proposed elevators. This is a healthy competition,
for whichever district is ultimately chosen the increased
handling of grain on the Pacific Coast must contribute,
directly or indirectly, to the advantage of the whole
province. At present, Victoria, Vancouver, North Vancouver, New Westminster, Port Moody, Port Mann and
some other sites arc under consideration. These cities
and districts have been visited by the commissioners,
and their various points of vantage will be duly weighed.
While both Victoria and New Westminster possess their
own peculiar facilities for the establishment of elevators,
there can be no reasonable doubt that Vancouver and
its near vicinity have claims that cannot easily be set
aside. Such site need not necessarily lie within the
city's limits as there are others available in Greater Vancouver. The advantages, however, of proximity to the
City of Vancouver and the ocean are obvious.
It is satisfactory, therefore, to learn that on Saturday
at a meeting of the civic and Board of Trade improvement
committee in Vancouver it was decided that proposed
sites on Burrard Inlet or English Bay be passed upon
by a joint committee of these two public bodies for submission to the Dominion government. The significant
point is that the choice of locations will not be confined
to the City of Vancouver limits. Steps will bc taken
to ascertain what sites Burnaby, Point Grey, North Vancouver, Port Moody or any other district have to offer,
with the stipulation that the land must be adjacent to
Burrard Inlet or English Bay. No doubt the particular
municipalities concerned will also take their own measures in submitting data respecting their sites for the government's consideration. But it is at least refreshing,
from a Greater Vancouver standpoint, to know that Vancouver does not intend to deal with the matter of these
elevators in a parochial or "Little Vancouver" spirit.
It transpired at the meeting referred to that at least
six sites had already been offered for the consideration
of the Board of Grain Commissioners. These include
a site west of the Second Narrows bridge with a waterfrontage of 1,800 feet, one at the Spanish Banks,
Point Grey and another at Port Moody with an area of
600 feet by 2000 feet. With regard to the latter site the
opinion was expressed by Mr. Blair, secretary of the
Vancouver Board of Trade, that he did not think Vancouver would object to Port Moody obtaining the cleva
tors, failing a more desirable location nearer the city.
One site suggested, that on the flats on the north shore
eif the inlet between Lynn Creek and Seymour Creek was
mentioned as likely lo be promoted by the Pacific Eastern
Railway company. The Port Moody site would be desirable for the C. P. R., while Port Mann would just
suit the ambitions of the Canadian Northern. Regarding
False Creek tide flats location there appears to be considerable scepticism as to the government deciding in its
favor.
While a suitable site for the proposed elevators is an
important matter, what is more essential is that the grain
should reach them in abundant measure. One of the
grain commissioners emphasized this point in the course
of some recent public remarks in Victoria and Vancouver.
If grain is to be attracted to the Pacific Coast, alert, experienced grain men, capital and organization are in-
dispensible. Given these factors and the milling industries will follow. Some more flour mills in Greater Vancouver would help materially in filling the dinner pails.
In view of the activity of the various municipalities in
the matter of those elevators, it behooves South Vancouver and Burnaby to see that their interests are not
overlooked in the future location of the industries connected with the development of the grain business.
"THAT there is a special opportunity for the establish-
��� ment of electro-chemical industries in British Columbia, is the opinion expressed by Mr. A. Vilstrup of Lake
Buntzen. He states that in a few years, the already
cultivated prairie soil will no longer be capable of yielding a wheat crop, as at present, without the application
of a fertilizer. When that day comes, mixed farming
will probably be generally resorted to throughout the
Western provinces. But even with the adoption > f more
permanent methods of farming, if Canada is to retain
her present proud position among the wheat-growing
countries of the world, she will surely before very long
need a supply of artificial manure. As this will be required in vast quantities, the production and distribution
of it will naturally be matters of great economic importance.
Thus by extracting nitrogen from the atmosphere,
by means of electro-power, various nitrate manures, such
as nitrate of lime, for instance, as well as other very important nitrogen compounds, are manufactured artificially.
THE VALUE  OF SCHOOL
BOOKS
("St.   Paul   Despatch.";
A   St.   Paul   man   went  into  a  book
���tore one  day  not  long  ago and  bis
eye   lighted     upon     an     old     book.
"Wilkes,   Sheridan     and     I-'ox;     the
leaders   of   the    Opposition."      He
seized il and paid for it, remarking
to the bookman that he was lucky to
have seen it before someone else gobbled it.
"Little fear of that," replied the
bookman. "That book has been
right in that place feir eight years and
no one has ever peeked into it. People do not read such bookl any more,
it seems. I doubt if a dozen men in
town can tell anything about Wilkes
or Fox today. Even in secondhand books the demand is for fiction.
History and biography are out of
date. It's the fault of the schools, I
believe. Hoys and girls graduate
without ever coming into conscious
companionship with the great characters of history."
Perhaps it is the schools. More
than one critic of the public school
system has observed that history, as
taught today, means merely a memorizing of dates, and that thc pupils
too seldom have any intimate sense of
men and things. The past is merely
the past and events are thought of as
existing by themselves without any
distinctive and divine connection
with  each  other.
And how such a thing narrows the
world and its meaning. Really, can
American independence mean anything vital and continuing to those
who have not the influence of Pitt
and Burke and Fox? Is Garrison
understandable to those who know
nothing of Wilberforce? Is there not
something circumscribed to the mind
that never connects O'Connell and
Wendell Phillips or Mirabcau and
Chatham?
Man, who was made to inherit the
earth, should certainly feel at home
among the master minds of the race,
and a school that leaves a great name
merely as a name on the mind of the
student is failing in its duty of inspiration. "No splendid future,"
says Stopford Brooke, "can bc won
by a nation which has forgotten veneration for its magnanimous past."
 A-^SSS���A	
DR. FRIEDMANN'S VISIT.
("The Toronto Star Weekly")
The journey of Dr. Friedmann
across Ontario will not have been in
vain, even should it prove that his
serum fails to accomplish what he
claims for it as a cure for tuberculosis. If his serum proves to be a
success, he must be considered the
greatest visitor this country has seen
since time began. If his remedy does
its work, to what other man was ever
given the satisfaction that was his as
as he progressed across the country
conferring life upon hundreds marked for death, and attended at each
stopping place by a large gathering of
our own leading physicians who clustered about him to observe and learn?
In it there must have been for him
the double pleasure of the professional man who has become the teacher in his profession, and of a healer
who, almost by miracle, cures the
supposedly incurable and restores to
life those resigned to die. It seems
to me that if this German doctor effects cures, these travels of his must
yield to him a greater joy and satisfaction than almost any man ever got
out of the fulfillment of his ambitions.
Even should he fail and his serum
be rejected, it is pretty well agreed
that the man is an enthusiast and a
believer in himself.
But, apart from that, real good will
have been done in the fact that consumption, its treatment and cure, has
for a month made the chief thought,
almost the whole thought, of the phy-
scians of Ontario, of the authorities,
and of the people. Those pathetic
processions of tbe afflicted in our
chief cities, seeking the healer, will
not soon be forgotten by the people.
The magnitude of the evil being done
by this disease was never before so
indelibly impressed on public consciousness. People who will not read
statistics, or who if they do are not
able to grasp them, can sec with their
eyes as the ill pass by, and can understand as they see the scenes photographed  in  the  newspapers.

DAVID LIVINGSTONE
Born March 19, 1813
Bi) FELIX PENNE
I im hundred years ago David Living-lone,   lhe   great   A.frican   traveler,
explorer and missionary) was born at
Blantyre, Scotland, then a little village
now grown into a small town and
there the people, proud of the fame
their townsman achieved, have just
erected   a   statue   to  his   memory.
David Livingstone was the son of
Neil Livingstone, a steady, hard-working man, who had all the Highland
pluck and hardihood and more than
the average working man's intelligence
and thirst feir knowledge. The mother
of David Livingstone had been Agnes
Hunter. She came off an old Covenanter family and had the Covenanter's hne of truth, honor and justice
and a singularly loveablc and kindly
disposition. Prom his mother David
inherited his love of order and neatness���characteristics which made the
records of his travels so exact and
valuable.
David Livingstone was born to poverty. Much againsl their will his parents had to take him away from his
lessons at ten years ot age and set
him to work in a cotton mill, where
he toiled from six in the morning
until eight at night. There were no
factory acts in those days, and the
way in which boys and girls of tender
years were compelled to work���even
many years later than the childhood
of David Livingstone moved Elizabeth
Barrett Browning to write her pathetic "Cry of the Children." Although
he toiled see many hours a day little
David found time���or made it, for
reading, he fixed a book on the "spinning jenny" at which he worked and
read a few sentences when he could
turn his eyes from his task, he read
too in the book of nature, and his
early studies of animals, birds and
plants, proved wonderfully useful to
him in after years when he was in
the forest jungles of "Darkest Africa."
David Livingstone read much of
mission work among the Chinese and
other "heathens." He resolved to go
to China as a missionary and with
great self-sacrifice trained for that
work, but war with China made his
project impossible, and so he qualified
himself as a medical missionary for
Africa, and in December 1840, he set
sail for that then unknown continent
which was to he for many years the
scene of his remarkable labors in the
service of humanity, On the long
voyage to Africa���-it was a long voyage in those days. Livingstone made
himself acquainted with the use of
nautical instruments and when he set
foot in Africa he was well equipped���
mentally, for the work of exploration.
And how great was that work? In
thirty years David Livingstone traveled some 30,000 miles through the wild
and unknown parts of Africa, he explored   rivers,   plains,  dense    forests,
and almost inaccessible mountain re-
gieeii-. Prom the very first be was
more an explorer than a missionary
and he considered lhat he was doing
lhe best service to Ilis follow men by
opening up regions where white settler- could live in health ;pid safety
cultivate coffee, sugar, and grain, barter ivory and skins, and so, by contact
with the natives wean them from their
evil customs and help to put, down the
cause of slavery.
It is as an enemy to the slave trade
that Livingstone will be best remembered. Ilis war against this abominable trade was a war of peaceful, tactful, methods.
Xo charge of "bucbery of the natives" was ever brought against Livingstone as it was brought against
Stanley. He lived with the blacks,
he doctored their sick, he taught them
agriculture, arts and crafts and so won
their confidence and love, that
throughout Africa his name is blessed
to  this  day.
Very early in his missionary career
Livingstone nearly fell a victim to an
African lion, he was seized by the king
of the forest and "shaken as a dog
shakes a rat," lie was saved by a faith-
fu follower but tire arm which was
mauled was weak, to the day of his
death. Years after the incident, when
he was in London, he pulled off his
cardigan jacket to show a boy of some
light years of age the scar made by
the lion's teeth and he told that boy
that the wound broke out afresh nearly every year. That boy is now a
resident of South Vancouver and lie
cherishes a memory of Livingstone's
strong kindly face and his wonderfully
vivid description of lhat lion hunt.
David Livinslone married Mary
Moffatt, the daughter of another
great missionary and traveler, and for
years his devoted wife shared his
wanderings, his sufferings and his discoveries.
The missionary society which had
been responsible for sending Livingstone as a preacher and teacher to
Africa grew dissatisfied with his methods, he did not do enough preaching
for them and probably Livingstone's
career as an explorer would have been
abandoned had he not received generous support from the Royal Geographical Society and above all from a
fellow traveller���a wealthy Englishman, William Cotton Oswell, who
found the means lor Livingstone to
continue his remarkable labors.
South African history has not done
sufficient justice to Oswell's share in
African exploration.
"Livingstone's Travels" fill the
pages of several large volumes so it
is impossible to give any adequate
idea of his work in a brief article, suffice it to say that by 1856 he had
made  a  reputation  which  won   warm I
recognition from Queen Victoria, the
Prince Consort and Lord Palmcrston,
and the Royal Geographical Society
found him a man whom they might
well delight be honor. The London
Missonary Society had but little use
for such a man as Livingstone and
with surprising short sightedness declined to "Aid plans only remotely
connected with the spread of the gospel" Fortunately Livingstone,
thanks to his friends Oswell, thanks
to the Royal Geographical Society
and several open-eyed generous men
was able to continue his work and
bring blessings to the black millions
of Africa, and to many thousands of
liritish who are now settled in a
wonderful country.
The story ot Livingstone's discovery
of Lake Xyassa, of his travels on the
Zambesi, of the wonderful "Victoria
Palls," of his adventures among warlike tribes who often threatened Ilis
life, but never harmed, the brave gentle man who they found to be their
true friend is a wonderful chapter in
the romance of travels.
Being prostrated by fever, Livingstone was carried many miles by his
faithful black comrades who shared
with him the great sorrow that fell
upon him when in 1862 he lost his
sweet, brave and devoted wife. More
than once Livingstone was lost in the
heart of Africa. There arc extant
many pathetic records, especially of
the year I860, when he recorded the
fact that for three years he had not
heard of his children or seen a white
man's face. Livingstone had been out
of touch with civilization for many
years. It was thought about 1871
that he must have fallen a victim to
the cruelty of the Arab slavers, whose
terrible traffic he had constantly and
unflinchingly opposed.
Not only England and Europe but
America was anxious to know the fate
of Livingstone and the great Americar
newspaperman, J. Gordon Bennett,
generously fitted out an expedition tc
go in search of the lost traveler. The
hero of this expedition vvas Henry M.
Stanley, who had himself been a poor
boy and had brought his way into notice by his .courage, ambition ant
force of character. The story of how
Stanley found Livingstone has oftei
been told. Livingstone declined, according to Stanley, to come back to
the great hustling world to which he
had long been a stranger. He was 60
years old, his toils, sufferings and sorrows had broken him down, his heart
was w-itli his black friends, and among
them he determined to end his days.
In the grey dawn of May 1, 1873,
Livingstone's black comrades gathered round the camp fire to consider
what they should do with the dead
body of their beloved friend who had
passed away, tired out, while on his
knees in prayer. He had often talked to them of the great "White Queen"
and of the great country which had
once been his home, they determined
that his body should be sent home
to be buried among his own people.
The body was roughly embalmed, his
heart was buried under a moiila tree
and then all that was left of the great
traveller was honored by a flight of
arrows and a volley from the few rifles
(the party carried.
With body wrapped in bark and sailcloth and lashed io a pule, Livingstone's faithful men carried the Mortal remains of their master and friend
to the cast.
The journey took nine months of
weary travel, of evil and peril, for
j more than once the faithful bearers
j had to light their way. At Bazanioyo
!in Feb. 1874 all tbat was left of the
[body of Livingstone W��S banded eever
to th��' liritish Consul and bis property
had been kept intact "to the last button."
David    Livingstone    was   buried   in
Westminster Abbey on April 18th,
[18/4. Henry M. Stanley w.as at bis
grave with Oswell Kirk and other
friends.
Livingstone the traveller was dead,
but his voice could still be heard in
his books, his records and that voice
.sounded like a trumpet call bidding
'the white man go to South Africa as
an enemy of lhe slave trade, and the
I pioneer of millions of prosperous settlers. Livingstone's heart is where
|it always was, in Africa, his tired body
rests amotjg the ashes of other good
and great men in the beautiful ab-
| bey which enshrines seven centuries
I of wonderful history. His name still
brings a look of joy to the faces of
the poor blacks'who have been taught
to love the memory of a saviour and
a friend.
In this outpost of the Empire we
do well to honor the centennial of a
great pioneer, whose name was never
associated with the lust of power or
gold���a name which wc can proudly
utter as associated with all that is
courageous, self-sacrificing and noble
in British character.

One or two young subalterns were
dining together at a restaurant, one
night, and the conversation became
a discussion on lies and lying gen-

debate as to who was the biggest
] liar known to them. An old gentleman sitting at a table near was
unable to avoid overhearing the discussion, and after a few minutes he
rose and came over to their table.
"I have just heard you decide, gentlemen," he said, gravely, "that Lieutenant Arthur Blank is the biggest
liar you have ever met. I am his
father."
After a few seconds' embarrassed
silence, one of the young officers began to stammer apologies, but the
old  gentleman   waved   them  aside.
"Xo, no," he said, "don't apologize.

NOTES OF INTEREST TO THE
LADY OF THE HOUSE
The Japanese are eminently clever
with the use oi their needle, and strips
and squares and oblongs oi their ex-
quisite embroideries are- eagerly coveted hy all havers "I beauty and admirer* eef Oriental products. The
colors are io exquisitely blended that
even the smallest bits may be utilized
with good effect, and there are endless ways eef using the larger pieces.
Gowni and evening wraps immediately assume a distinctive air when
they have a touch nf this charming
trimming, feer ilu- rich colors har-
iii'inize with almost any Fabric. Hits
of it may be inlaid upon collars and
cuffs,   e.r   a   girdle   may     enrich     an
otherwise sombre garment. Often,
buttons c.evcrcel freem it. will give
lhe necessary touch nf color, nr strips
may be made into large Collars nn
w raps.
There are also many objects which
can be created which will add a very
decorative note to a room, Picture
frames look very attractive when
made uf thi* material covered with
glass, wheesi edges are beeune! in
tarnished gold braid. A book-rack,
t"". is unusual, when treated in this
manner, and sufa cushions, table
covers or piano scarfs, all present a
very artistic effect.
Hag* eef every S'irt and descriptions
are all the rage, and what material is
mure appropriate than this for their
creation? Opera bags arc charming
when caught at the tup wilh heavy
cords ornamented wiih jade beads, or
the larger wurk bags with large jade
rings tor handles, Trays, tun, are
much in vogue, both for utilitarian
purposes a- well a* fnr their decorative qualities, and squares nr oblongs

smart when framed in ��� >f< 1 mahogany

satin wood, with tarnished silver
handles   te.   match.     Card   cases   and
pocketbooks with silver dragons,
needle In neks, book and magazine
covers are all successful when treated with the needle. Work nf thc
East, and an entirely new idea, is tn
combine these compelling te.ni's with
dull, neutral suede. Small bits nf the
embroidery is set into the leather,
either in plain ur conventional designs.
Ordinarily. Japanese embroidery is
something "f a luxury, hut often um.
is fortunate in being able tu pick
them up at sales or old shops when
they have a few on hand. Hut one
must cultivate the eye tn recognise
the guud things nn matter where
they   may   bc   hidden   away,   and   tn
know how tn utilize them to the best
advantage,
Playrooi-.. Gardens
During the next few weeks when
the grown-ups arc busy planning the
spring gardens the children will find
much fun mi rainy, cold or damp
days in culling up discarded seed
catalogues. A shallow cardboard
box such as suits come in makes a
good miniature garden. Give the
kiddies a pair of dull pointed scissors,
r a pot uf glue and let them cut tlie
; pictures nf lb .wets, plants and shrubs
from the catalogue. If a half-inch
strip is left below the picture it may
be turned back at right angles and
pasted in the box so that each nnc
stands upright in ihe "garden." If
the m.ether or seune older person cm
have work near the children while
they are playing, many stories and cx-
planations of nature can he given
that will mean much to the children
when they cm go tei the garden, park
Or woods a  few weeks hence.

Mesh Bags and Purses
Among articles of exceeding usefulness, shown in the jewelry shops
tin- wonderful mesh bags and purses
e.f lhe season stand out conspiciously
as prime favorites. As long as women remain pncketless a bag of some
seert is imperative. Hence lhe mesh
bag nf gold eir silver is likely to stay
in vogue, as it is decorative, sanitary,
and convenient, Ot course, the most
bags nf green gold���the favored novelty    at       present���with      cabnchoii
Istones at the clasp, beautiful mesh
as line and soft as a piece of silk, and
pierced and engraved bars studded
with gems, run up the thousands in
i price.
A new one nf this class has a flap
uf mesh that folds uver the bar. But
there are similar bags of silver that
are quite as acceptable and have the
same beautiful wrought bars and
well made mesh. The preferred size
i* about six inches in width, thc bars
clinging tn lhe slender proportions
entirely.
A novelty in this   department   <>f
jewelry is "the "change purse" nf silver mesh with an octagonal top of
solid metal, either plain, engraved
nr engine turned in stripes. Within
this lid is a compartment for powder
puff opening on the outside and having in tbe inside surface nf its cover
a tiny mirror, A linger ring complete*   lhe   trinket.

To Make a Sewing Bag
A sewing bag is always appropriate leer the woman who travels, and
a pretty one is made in this manner:
I'n.in cardboard, cut an oval five
inches lung and neatly cover with
figured silk or ribbon, whipping the
edges together. Take a strip of silk
seven inches wide and long enough
l.e encircle the oval twice. Stretch
a narrow piece of ribbon, allowing a
heading three-quarters of an^ inch
wide join the ends, making a French
seam, and gather thc lower edge.
Stitch it In the nval and run a nar-
reew ribbon draw-string through the
top. Stock the bag with a small
needlebook containing mixed needles
and a bodkin, an emery strawberry,
a small pair of scissors, a glove mender, a small bug containing hooks
and eyes, buttons and safety pins, a
spool each of white and black thread,
and a thimble. Around the edge of
the oval stick white and blick pins.
A bag of this description will prove
a   "friend   in   need"   upon   many   oc-
C.'isieell*.
Odd lengths nf ribbon can be purchased at the remnant counter for
the proverbial sung, and the bag
will cost but a small sum. These
hags find a ready sale at bazaars, so
if your church intends giving one,
supply Ihe needle-work counter with
plenty of mending bags.

favorites at Craig-y-Xus Castle include a couple of pretty little Chi-
hua-hua dugs frum Mexico, called
BonitO and Fillette. She has a host
of birds, large and small, among them
many perky parrots and cockatoos,
canaries and piping bulfinchcs, a golden weaver, a pair of saucy-looking
Australian robins, and a particularly
vociferous mocking-bird from San
Francisco, Most nf these pets are

Coloring Flowers
Wilh a very simply made mixture
a wonderful change may be made in
the cnliir uf flowers. Take a small
glass, but une large enough tn dip
flowers in with which you expect to
experiment. Pour into the glass a
small quantity of ether and to it add
niie-tenth nf that amount uf strung
ammonia water, Yeuir mixture will
now be ready fur use, and with it you
can change any flower that is either
violet ur red in color to a bright
green. The magical effect is almost
instantaneous, as you will see if for
instance yuu will dip a violet into
the fluid.. Tn your surprise ynu will
behold the violet turn green. The
same effect will follow with a red
ruse, a geranium, the periwinkle, lilac,
helitrope en- red carnation. All of
these flowers you will find respond
to this simple treatment, and a specimen nl each exhibited tee your friends
will excite their wonder at your flori-
cullural  knowledge,
The violet colored sweet pea when
dipped into the mixture will come
nut with its upper petals a deep blue
and the lower ones green. White
flowers treated in this way generally
become yellow or deep orange, bul
yellow flowers stem not to bc affected by the solution, The streaked
carnation will turn brown and green.
If some flowers arc sprinkled with
the fluid instead nf being dipped they
will present a mottled appearance instead uf the whole flower becoming
changed.
11 is the ether that cause the effect
to bc speedy, as a somewhat similar
effect is produced by the use uf the
ammonia alone, only the process is
a  much  longer  one.
Another little experiment with ammonia and the aster, that fall flower
and herald nf the bigger chrysanthemum, is to give this odorless
flower a pleasantly aromatic odor.
Pour some ammonia into deep dish
(a soup plate will serve), place the
asters in a glass finger bowl and invert it so that the bowl containing
the asters covers the dish with the
ammonia in it. The fumes from the
ammonia effect a change so that wdien
ynu take the asters out they will have
a distinct odor!

A Use for Willow Plumes
The woman who paid from $10 to
$20 feer a willow feather season befure last, and now bemoans her ill-
luck, and her inability to pay an equal
price fnr desirable French plumes,
may take heart ol grace, for something may be done with the depressed-looking willow, after all, In bring
it up to the class of the gayly curling French feather. Many a willow
plume   this   season   has   been   made
over into an nstrich wreath, and two
plumes will make a very attractive
wreath, lung ennugh tei go all around
a velvet hat. The euiels are clipped
frmn the willnw plume, just above
the knnt, and the shortened plumes
are curled up evenly. This makes a
rather narrow, but Huffy, wreath nf
feathers, and these narrow wreaths
are laid Hat within the curl nf the
wide hat brim, bill imt polled against
the crown, which is usually a sofl
j draped nr lam affair. One nr twee
small and nut tun expensive French
tips, curling over the brim at nnc
side, near the back, complete a perfectly up-to-date hat; and the number nf these nstrich wreaths seen mi
mid-winter millinery models seem tn
demonstrate that something has been
dune with hopelessly passe willuws

SOME USEFUL RECIPES
Coffee Sauce
Beat the yolks of two eggs with
one-fourth cup of sugar. Add half
a cup of freshly made, clear, strong,
black coffee. Cook over hot water,
stirring constantly until it commences
to thicken. When cold, add a cup of
whipped  cream.
Tn serve place the ice cream in
glasses and heap the sauce over tlie
top.

Fish for Broiling
Halibut, end, salmon steaks, blue-
fish, mackerel, and shad are all good
lish for broiling. When the slices
are very thick, sume cuoks find it
better tn tinsb the cooking in the
oven. Tn thoroughly cne,k- through
(and lish must always be well cnok-
ed) nn the broiler often means a
blackened surface. Now, if the steak I
is well scared and brnwn the juices j
are confined, and a finish in the oven
will be much more satisfactory than
a longer lime over thc broiler.
Though broiling seems In be a must
simple process, it really requires a
good deal nf care and attention. A I
slice of fish one inch thick will broil
in twelve to fifteen minutes. If you
arc fortunate enough tn have a coal
fire, place the fish in a double wire
brniler, well greased. Lay lhe flesh
side down tn the lire and broil it
till it is a golden brown, lifting occasionally as necessary. Cook in this
way from eight to twelve minutes,
then turn to thc skin side and finish
broiling. Place nn a lint dish and
rub the fish wilh hot butter. Garnish
with parsley and bits  of lemon.

Clam Salad
This makes quite a nice supper
dish and is easily and quickly prepared. Cook clams sufficiently to fill
a cup twice and allow them to get
cold. Thoroughly wash and shred a
head of lettuce and place in the ice

remove the skins. Marinate for ten
minutes with a French dressing and
then serve on a nest of the shredded

That charming nld lady Dorothy
Nevill is dead. At hcr house the
Conservative Primrose League was
started. Yet she was a broad-minded woman, and John Burns, the Radical, was nne of her favorites. I treasure a photograph of Lady Dorothy
Nevill  hanging on   thc  arm of John.

Such "links with the past" as Lady
Dorothy Nevill arc disappearing. 1
confess that it has given me a thrill
when I have touched a hand that
had touched the hand of Sir Walter
Scott, or some other celebrity of a
by-gone age, and that has been my
experience several times. A few
years ago I had a perfect mania for
hunting up and chatting with centenarians. Fancy! Lady Dorothy Nevill
has only just died, and her father
was  born  nearly   140 years  ago!

I much regret that I could not bc
present at the "Progress Club" lunch
on Wednesday to hear Mr, Schole-
lieid, the Provincial Librarian, speak
on the Civic Value of the Public
Library.     That   subject   has   been   a
favorite theme fur my pen and I am
a  little proud  nf  the  tact   that   I   had
much tn ihe with ihe spread of the
library movement  in   London.    1  was
present when Mr. Gladstone opened
the public library al Si. Marlin's-in-

lhe value of local history. I was
chairman when Sir John Lubbnck
opened the Battersea Library ami I
heard him speak on how books added
tee "the pleasures of life." 1 heard
Leslie Stephen speak on the value of
Public Libraries at Lavender Hill
(my name is on the curiicr-stone of
lhat library), and 1 heard Augustine
I'.irrcll speak on the value of nooks
as factors in thc growth of a city at
the opening of St. Gcnrgc's Library,
Sniithwark. Here arc testimonies indeed to the value of public libraries.
Let mc add another. Ask the people
of Collingwood if the little library
there has stimulated and brightened
local life, and I warrant you will get
a satisfactory reply.

years ago my father employed one

While  tilt   schedule  feir  the  season
was not drafted, it wai agreed that
Vancouver would have eight home
games and, providing that Vicleiria
was unable to secure a team, Westminster would be given five home
games, while the three additional
games would be played in Victoria.
For this Mr. Jones guaranteed the
Xew Westminster Lacrosse club
$501X1.
Should Victoria secure a franchise
In the B. C. L. A., Westminster will
still be allowed eight home games
while three games will be played, one
in each city, Mr. Jones again guaranteeing the Royal City club $6,000,
and assuming their share of the receipts.
At the adjourned annual meeting
held at New Westminster last week
the following officers were elected:
Honorary president, Sir Richard Mc-
Bride; past president, Harry Cowan;
president, Alderman Kellington, New
Westminster; first vice-president,
John Virtue, Victoria; second vice-
president, A. P. Garvey, Vancouver;
secretary-treasurer, F. j. Lynch, New
Westminster.
In accordance with previous rumors
a deadlock occurred barely a minute
after the president called the meeting
to order. The New Westminster
delegates abandoned their attempt to
force the gate divishjn, but .Manager
Tommy Gifford submitted two alternatives, one of which eventually prov-
ed to be the solution of the difficulty.
The trouble which New Westminster has encountered in the past in
regard to financing the Minto Cup
holders was gone into thoroughly
and it was the concensus of opinion
that the argument advanced was a
reasonable one. It was shown conclusively that New Westminster could
not attempt to compete with Vancouver and Victoria, if the latter should
be admitted, and after considerable
argument, "Con" Jones came forward
with the offer as stated above. Westminster consented and oil had been
poured upon  the  troubled  waters.
Messrs. "Con" Jones, Lionel Vorke
and F, J. Lynch will probably form
the party which will leave for the East
in an effort lo secure players for the
Victoria Lacrosse club. The schedule
meeting will be called upon their arrival back on  the  Coast.
According to a report coming
from Ottawa it is expected within
the next few days that an amicable
settlement of the lacrosse war between the Dominion and National
Lacrosse Associatiems will be made.
Hither Cornwall or Ottawa will be
dropped, according to the report, and
a six-team club organized, to include
Toronto, Tecumseh, National. Montreal, Shamrock and the Capitals of
Cornwall.
Although the National Lacrosse
Union at a meeting. recently held,
decided to go on as the N. L. U.,
while several of the members of the
Big Four have stated that there will
be no change in the two unions this
season, the "Big Six" idea has not
been abandoned by President A. L.
Caron of the National Amateur Athletic Association. He stated, when
i.sked if there was anything new in
the lacrosse situation : "That if the
gentlemen who have give me their
word do not back down there will
surely be a six-club league this season." He would not make public
the names of those pledged, but has
every confidence of carrying out this
idea.
On Saturday hockey triumphed
over the Eastern brand in both closing engagements of two oi the greatest series ever yet attempted, While
the Western All-Stars were nusy
trimming "Art" Ross' combination
by a score of 9 goals tee 1, the Ceeast
champions at Victoria were administering a decisive victory over Quebec by 6 to 1 score. In both games
the Western players showed their
superiority, and the issues never were
in doubt from the start of each struggle. Both the Western All-Stars
and the Victorians played in their
best form and that tells the tale.
Brilliant and sensatieinal hockey,
fast skating and the cleverest stick
handling of the season were the order of the night.
"Eddie" Oatman was the best man
on the ice. He uncovered a world of
speed that made the Easteners look
slow a score of times, while his
back checking greatly assisted the
defense in breaking up the majority
of the All-Star rushes. Griffis, Jo|
son  and  Lehman   proved  a  veritable
lampions.

Judging ire.iii il..' remarks of Manager Lester Patrick, of the Victoria
professional heickiy club, iu the
Coast League, it would appear that
the' lix.rnan game will be adopted
next winter, It is i'e In- hoped, however, that such will nejt turn out to
be lhe case.
Six-man hockey practically kills
combination and team work. Mr.
Patrick contends that the bob-tailed
game produces more sensational plays
as the players have not the same
opportunity f.jr bodying, there being
more ice per man, with a consequent
opening up of play. Possibly there
is something in his contention, but
players with the speed and stick-
handling abilities of Ernie Johnston,
"Cyclone" Taylor, Frank Patrick,
Tommy Dunderdale, etc., do not require a half-acre sheet of ice in order
to evade a body check.
All e.ver Western Canada the
seven-man game is unquestionably
the favorite, and the O. H. A. with
their large number of contesting
teams, have not seen fit to adopt the
new game. Winnipeg hockey fans
are solid for the retention of the old
game, and we have lhe boys who can
provide the thrills just as often with
fourteen men on the ice, as any six-
man team can pull off. In addition,
wc can play the prettiest kind of
combination. It is undoubtedly exciting to see one man dodge his way
freun one end of the rink to the other,
and score. W'e have seen that done
dozens of limes this winter. What
is more, we have witnessed three or
four men go down the ice abreast and
passing in faultless style, sag the net,
and to our minds we incline to favor
the style of hockey that landed us

it would not defend except with a

The practical assurance of another
Oxford and Cambridge vs. Y'ale and
Harvard contest this year has given
great satisfaction in 'varsity athletic
circles. Oxford and Cambridge committees will almost immediately
consider the American's challenge, and
an acceptance is taken as certain. It
is understood that Alec Nelson, the
Cambridge Athletic Club trainer,
will be selected to accompany the
combined team. English athletes believe, that while the Americans are
able to put exceptionally strong men
in the field, Oxford and Cambridge
rarely, if ever, had the chance of
sending such good representatives
for all ten events on the programme,
and the fifth meeting of the four universities is consequently specially interesting. Among the probable English representatives will bc W. O.
Zeigler, an American, who hails from
Grinnell College, Iowa, and is now
at Oxford. After enumeration of the
likely members of the English team
the athletic correspondent of the
Pall Mall Gazette says a historic
tussle is clearly foreshadowed, and
it is hoped that no hitch may arise
to prevent it.

According to James Rodgers of the
Yale crew coaching staff, the failure
of Oxford to produce greater speed
in the late Varsity boat race was due
in part, to lack of instruction in the
final touches of rowing.      He says:
"The general campaign of the Oxford coaching is novel in its conceptions, and is not at all understood in
America. The policy is based upon
the idea that different coaches arc desired  to  develop  a  crew  to  its  best

Ronan  was  the  only  member of the
visitors who could bulge the net behind Lehman, and he turned the trick
on three occasions. Kendall played
his usual brilliant game, and Ran
McDonald did fairly well Until he
retired with a sore shoulder toward
the close of the  match.
Ronan and "Odie" Cleghoru were
the pick of the Easteners, although
Ross worked like a demon in an effort  to stop  the  Western  onslaught.
The game at Victoria was played
for the first part with six-men-a-sidc
hockey, and the showing of the
Coast champions during the time the
abbreviated game was in progress,
was surprising. They 'outplayed the
N. H. A. at their own game and
never for an instant did the result
look doubtful. Fairly did they win
the world's hockey championship,
and when it is considered that they
scored four goals to nil, playing under rules which they were not familiar with, they are entitled to all
honor.
The Victoria line uncorked speed
galore,   while   Lindsay,   Patrick   and
'accustomed to seeing the faults of his
oarsmen, and that another coach
should take charge of the crew after
a short time and correct the inaccuracies that look more glaring to him
than to the coach who is used to seeing them. This policy has given Oxford three different coaches for several seasons. Professor Bourne, for
the early work, then Holland, and
finally Gold, who will come to Yale
in a few weeks to give our crew the
finishing touches just as he gave them
to Oxford. This combination has
.worked out a record crew for Oxford,
and has given her repeated victories.
"This season, however. Professor
Bourne was unable to give his time
regularly to thc coaching, because of
business affairs, and Holland did not
coach the crew in mid-season, Kirby
replacing him. Gold, however, gave
the finishing touches. Kirby, who
captained the Leander crew which was
defeated last year by thc Australians,
but which defeated them last summer
at the Olympics, will come to this
country with Gold. Professor
Bourne's son has been stroke for several winning Oxford crews, including
The Mystery of the Eel.
i ine of the great mysteries of natural history has been the reproduction of the eel. Ne> fish is nieire common in the rivers oi both continents,
yet of the millions of eels examined in
Europe and America not one was ever
found containing spawn or giving
evidence of its place or method of propagation. It was known that each
autumn all the eels that could get
away migrated down and out of the
rivers and bays and made for the open
sea. Every spring hosts of small
eels, or "elvers," so known in England as "glass eels," invade the
estuaries and wriggle up the rivers by
night, growing in size and color as
they penetrate inland. Many years
ago naturalists discovered in the sea
small transparent swimming creatures
of unknown affinity which they called
leptocephali. Years later it was disclosed that these increased in size and
turned into eels���that is, they were a
younger stage of "elvers." Subsequent
observers obtained these still younger,
capturing them far out in the ocean,
sometimes close to the surface, sometimes below it down to a depth of
one hundred and fifty fathoms or so.
Like most other small organisms in
the surface layers of the sea, they
were almost invisible, so perfectly so
chat it was hard to find them when
brought up in the nets. Professor
Gran, who completed the solving of
the mystery during the oceanic survey work of the Michael Sars expedition, says that eel larvae are "so
transparent that when sorting them
out of the living material captured one
can only see their small black eyes;
even their blood is transparent and
perfectly devoid  of haemaglobin."
Thus it became established that
these leptocephali, shaped like willow

leaves, were eel larvae born in the
spring in the open ocean. But where?
The Micheal Sars men discovered that
when the eels go down to the sea
in the fall they swim away to the
warm south, and there in the northern
edge of the tropic zone they develop
and emit clouds of spawn which floats
up and hatches at the surface. The
larvae drift north with thc Gulf
Stream, growing and changing as they
go. How long it takes for any one
individual to reach the latitude of
Europe is unknown, and perhaps
varies much. Doubtless the vast majority are eaten on the way; but, at any
rate, each spring enough have arrived
in northern water and are sufficiently
mature to repopulate the rivers.
Where the American eels spawn is not
net yet known; but doubtless it will be
found to be in the ocean off the Bahamas and southward.

In an article on the future of Vancouver realty, Mr. D. Von Cramer,
of the Vancouver Trust Company
makes the following interesting comparisons of Vancouver peninsula with
London and  Xew  Veerk :
In making a comparison of Real
Estate values within the limits of
different cities there is one very important condition that should be
given lirst and most important consideration, viz., the geographical configuration of each.
Where, for instance, a city is
growing up in the midst of a level
country and expansion for miles in i
almost any direction is easy . the
primary conditions are very different
from the case of one which is built
upon an island or peninsula, where
the area conveniently available for
improvement is circumscribed, and
its borders more or less definitely
fixed. Take, as examples, the two
greatest cities in tbe world, London
and New York. The natural tendency
of London's growth is to gradually
extend its limits into the surrounding country, while that of Xew York
is tee concentrate een its limited area
by increasing the size and height of
its buildings, so as to utilize to the
greatest earning power every foot of
space. The result, of course, is enormously in favor of the owner of real
estate  on   Manhattan  Island.
These conditions were apparently
figured out by such people as the ancestors of the Astors and Vandcrbills.
who proceeded to buy large areas of
unimproved land away ill advance of
the immediate requirements, of . a
growing population. They had satis-
lied themselves as to two points���
first; that New York was going to be
a big city, so far as population was
ceiucerned,*and, second, that it could
met help being a comparatively small
city as far as area was concerned.
In other words, that the land available would inevitably become overcrowded in the course of time which
would mean an enormous and increasing rise in values.
The great point which was over-
le ee eked by their contemporaries was
that there was really no speculation
whatever ill such purchases as the
value was already there. The Van-
derbilts and Astors simply studied
the map a bit closer than (ethers. The
conditions were such that they knew
they had a sure thing.
In lhe case of London, progress
has been entirely different. That city
has been most erratic in the direction
of its growth. While, of course,
values have gone up more or less, in
every direction, the increase has
often been very disappointing in districts which seemed promising. The
trouble has been that instead of being safely coralled, as the population
of New York is, the people of London could stampede in any direction
they  listed.
With the experience of these two
cities as a basis, we are fairly sale in
concluding that in other cities, whose
natural configuration approaches
those of cither London e,r New York,
the same results will inevitably ensue under similar conditions eif population.
Following out the above ideas with
regard  to  the  classification    of    the
present and future of the City of Vancouver.,  it  at  once  becomes  strikingly  apparent  that  in  many  important
j respects   it     resembles     Xew     York
I rather   than   London.    The   shape  of
j the peninsula, which either does now,
[or  will  shortly,  form its site, is not,
of  course,  exactly  the  same  as  that
e.i' Manhattan Island, but almost iden-
' lical conditions exist.

Supposing this 45,000 acres were
all subdivided into thirty-three foot
lots, averaging, say 5 lots to the acre,
which would be about the number,
after making proper allowances for
streets and lanes, it would give a
total of 225,000 lots in all, Allowing
feir an average of three persons to
each lot, which is thc usual allowance
made in calculating the population
of cities, it would allow room for
just 675,000 people.
The estimated population at the
end of October, 1912, upon this area
was about 200,000. If the phenomenal growth of the city during the last
few years continues, as there is every
indication that it will, it js not unreasonable   to   expect   that   the   total

These two factors, of restricted

give a present value to lots anel

not appear to the superficial observer. It is the faculty of sizing up a

Kerr:
Reeve Kerr: You have heard this
communication, In view of the fact
that Mr. McArthur wants a public
investigation lie' did not know what
good ii would (hi hearing him before
the council as suggested ill the letter.
Personally he was quite willing that
Mr. MeArlhur should have a hearing, but lie thought it quite unnecessary and uncalled for.
>Councillor J. J. Wilbers said that
Mr. McArthur would have had a hearing before if he had not expressed
himself publicly as lie had a few days
age
The Reeve referring to the ame.unt
of $60,252 to be expended on reeads,
stated that it would be at least six
weeks before they could get any more
money, and they would have to make
j,, ,,,,    , i the that amount last for two months, The
previous to Council should put on enough men
fact that I '" keep the work geeing two months,
and he suggested that the engineer
should change the men around lee
give employment to as many weirk-
men as possible. Councillor Millar
did not think that employing men for
short period! of two or three days
an economical one. It resulted in a
waste of time, and the city did not
receive full value for the money. The i
Reeve pointed out that the idea of j
einpleeying the men on short shifts
was to relieve the distress of unemployment in lhe district. It should
be remembered that the municipality
Hist year employed about 1400 men
on the roads, and a large number of
those were ill lhe district and still |
Unemployed, lie agreed that only
good men should be put on so that
full value be obtained for the municipality's expenditure. He believed in
a dollar's worth eef work being done
for a ehillar. and the Engineer should
be instructed that the men employ-
ed, whether for a short or long peri.eel.

Metals that Kill Microbes
Experiment  seems  to    show
there   are   certain   metals   which
capable   of  destroying  microbes
come in  contact with  them.
The microbes experimented with
were cultivated for the purpose in
jelly spread on a plate, and pieces of
metal were dropped upon the jelly
while it was still moist.
Any metal that had the property of
arresting the development of the mi-
crones destroyed them, not only just
under the place where it lay, but for
a narrow space around it. The width
of this space varied both with the kind
of metal and the kind of microbe.
Pure gold, when freshly cleaned and
burnished, had no effect upon the microbes. Pure nickel and platinum
and a few other metals also failed to
affect the organisms. But cadmium,
copper, brass, zinc, and silver destroyed them, the first-named metal especially acting quickly and effectively.
It has been observed that the metals
that affected the microbes wcre those
that arc really attacked by chemical
reagents, while those that resist such
reagents, like gold, had no effect.
From this fact it -lias been concluded
that the action upon the organisms is
due to a solution of the "metals taking
place in the jelly.

Joseph Brookl will present Mr.
Crane here for the first time on thc
local stage in his current hit which
was written by Martin Morton, The

made a pronounced hit there during
its run for over four months. It tells
an interesting story of domestic life
in the national capital and emcc more
Mr. Crane is seen in thc congenial
role of United States senator. His
portrait of Senator Larkin is said to
be one of the happiest characterizations he has yet given the American
stage. The comedy is appealing and
more than interesting for itself, and
with Mr. Crane in its central character has proven one of thc delights of
this era. It will be given here exactly as seen in New York City and Mr.
Crane will have the support of his
original company including Mablc

"The Concert"
"The Concert," the play which
David Belasco presented at the Imperial e,n Friday and Saturday is a
comedy dramatizing the "artistic temperament." Other managers have
tried to stage that intangible something which, for want of a better
name, is called "artistic temperament," but few have succeeded like
Mr. Belasco. In order to do this
Mr. Belasco had to have a good play
and he found what he wanted in "The
Concert," which was originally produced in Vienna. It had to be Americanized for our stage and that means
that it had to be rewritten and practically a new play made of it. The
main idea eif the original play was the
"artistic temperament," and this is
about all that remains of the original.
Mr. Belasco set Leo Ditrichstein
to work at the adaptation and when
the task was finished he asked Mr.
Ditrichstein to play th? leading role
of  Gabor  Arany,   the  musician.       In
Quilliam,    whether   In     the   tenderer
scenes with his write and the baby
or in the stormy denunciation of the
villagers or his last scene with the
Deemster his work was always up tee
the highest mark, it is enough in it-
Self iee firmly establish his position
as a leading man. Maude Leone was
an admirable second in the part of
Kale Cregeen, charming always to
lenik at. her acting was on a very high
plane, and the appeal to thc sympathies eef her auditors bieiught in-
sl.iHt and enthusiastic results. Alf.
Layne gave a splendid character
sketch in the part (if old Caescr Cregeen and Howard Russell a strong
delineation of that complex character
the "Deemster." The general support was admirable and the piece
Beautifully   staged   and  mounted.
For next week starting Monday,
April 7th, an elaborate production of
"The Greyhound" is announced. This
the most noted work of those famous
collaborators Paul Armstrong and
Wilson Mizner, has been the sensation
of the past two seasons, both here and
abroad. The Avenue has already
shown to Vancouver play-goers two
famous plays by these noted authors
in "Alias Jimmy Valentine" and "The
Deep Purple," but "The Greyhound"
will be found to surpass even these
noted plays in sustained interest, rapid
action and lifelike characterizations
from  the  underworld.
A. larger part of the action of thc
play, takes place upon the great Cu-
nard liner "The Mauretania" and
nearly every part of the great boat
is shown.
"The Greyhound" will be thc season's sensation at the Avenue, and
seats will undoubtedly be at a premium, su to get in line for your reservations at as early a date as possible woulil  seem  desirable.

Clara Butt Concert
Royal Albert Hall. London, with ils
seating capacity of 6000 and with 2000
persons standing in addition to that
number, seldom has presented a more
remarkable scene than on the occasion
of the recent recital of Mme. Clara
Butt and Kennerley Rumford. The
famous English contralto and her
husband, who are to give a grand concert in the Vancouver Horse Show
building under the direction of Mr.
Henshaw, on April 10, have had many
noteworthy ovations but few more
impressive  than  this.
The concert was an afternoon affair,
and the boxes and stalls wcre filled
with the aristocracy of thc United
Kingdom.
Clara Butt looked taller and handsomer than ever'as she stood atthe
front of the immense platform, smiling and bowing again and again to
the thousands of differing men and
women, whose tumultuous applause
kept her from beginning. For several minutes "She remained so, bowing,
bp-wing, wondering when they would
stop, or if they were goin to stop at
all.   .
It was in the centre of a silence,
which had quite an uncanny effect
after the terrific uproar, that Clara
Butt's voice soared up through the
stillness on the first bars of Beethoven's soul-stiring "In'quests tom-
ba "
And what a voice it was! Years
ago the whole world enthused about
Clara Butt, and declared anything
more entrancing was not possible. Yet
since then her voice has actually increased in volume', just as her singing has become more extraordinarily
artistic. The section plan is now at
Mason & Rich's piano store.
Avenue Theatre
This week the Lawrence Plavers
are adding new laurels to their crown
by their masterly presentation of Hall
Caine's famous dramatized novel "The
Manxman." An absolute failure at
the Avenue is unknown and successes
have crowded one upon the other at
that popular play house, but for
superb all-round work bv every member of the company in the long cast,
we are much inclined to give the palm
to the famous play.
That fine actor Del Lawrence fairly
outdid   himself  in   the  role  of   Peter
auditor from start to finish. Its mythical story laid in the future, gives
scope for dramatic treatment of the
best sort. "Pope Leo Xlf," "David
Rossi" the patriot, "Bruno Rocco,"
the Socialist, "Roma Valonna," the
sculptress, "Baron Bonelli," the Prime
Minister of Italy, all enchain the interest and are welded into a plot that
is intense. Walter Sanford with his
clear and musical diction, is an ideal
"Pope Leo XIV," Charles Ayres is
full of ardor as "David Rossi," while
Isabelle Fletcher as "Roma Valonna"
looked very beautiful. Mcta Marsky,
V. T. Henderson, Harold Nelson ami
the balance of the company excel.
The scenery is manificent especially
the Garden of the Vatican.
Next week will be given a most
elaborate production of that famous
English play "Harbor Lights" as done
at the Adetphi Theatre, London, s his
will be the first, time that our theatre
goers have had the opportunity to see
this famous drama that is one of the
Steriattr'd touring plays of England. It
is thought to be the best play ever
written by that master playwright,
George R. Simms and William Terriss
the stage idol of London for many

The "Enchanted Princess" Pantomine
Much credit is due to the ladies of
St. Ijuke's Guild for the splendid
entertainments given in the North
Arm School, South Vancouver oil
the nights of March 27 and 28, as
well as to Mrs. Morris for thc abb-
way in which she trained the performers. The schoolroom wa-s tastefully decorated with evergreens,
flowers and ferns.
A piano solo by Mrs. Schaw, the
first item on the programme, was very
skilfully rendered. Mrs. H. Harris,
as a fish-girl was a!*> very much appreciated. A sash drill, deserves
special mention, being ably given by
five young ladies, whose names are:
Misses Florence Chandler, Annie
Dodson, Isabel Holmes, Mabel Taylor, Eva Robinson and Hilary Morris. Mr. Palmer and Miss Cardeti
were both welcomed, the former on
Thursday night with his comic song,
and the latter on Friday night with
her love songs. An Easter Lily
Dance by the Misses Morris was very
appropriate and charming. A musical trio by Miss Gregory and Messrs.
H. Chandler and M. Scott was much
appreciated. The lirst part of the
programme was brought to a close by
a very graceful skirt dance by Miss
A.  Meirris.
The second part of the programme
was opened by Mrs. H. Harris with
the good old song "Coming thro' the
Rye." This was followed by the
pantomime entitled "The Enchanted
Princess." In Act I the white rabbit
(L. Morris) hides the Easter Eggs
and the Witch (F. Chandler) seeing
him, places a golden egg with them.
Later. Princess Syringia (Miss K.
Morris) finds thc eggs, takes up the
golden one and falls into a trance.
Lady Alice (Miss Morris) finding
the Princess, and unable to arouse
her realizes that she is under the
Will-he's spell.
i The costumes, songs and dances
iin the pantomime were very pretty.
' and were admired by an appreciative
i audience. The proceeds, which goes
to the Aid of St. Luke's Church,
amounted to about  seventy dollars.
