Weel now, I'm- had mony questyins

tae feel comfortable wi' yersel, an'
that applies tae human bein! an' ani-

1 says, it's baith a bobby an' a moneymaker. Vac can hae that live dollars

And what was it all about? The
meeting primarily was called at the in-
tigalion of the Reeve and Council
to explain and show reasons why the
ratepayers'should vote on Saturday
for lhe raising of the rate of interest
on the Schoolj ilylaw to 5 per cent
and the Park Bylaw for $50,000 for'
tlie purchase, in conjunction witli
.Point Grey and the city, of-the Little
Mountain  Park.

igly   quiet  and  gave   no   signs

Wieli-a brief infroduction'Jitje chairman catted on Reeve Karr to address
the   meeting. At -Jta���outs��4, - - th��
Reeve intimated that this meeting
was vailed fo* the purposes previously
alluded to, and he promised that if,
after licaiid'his voltCagues had spoken, any of the audience wished to ask
questions or rtddressMlie'andienee they
would be at perfect liberty te, do so.
The Reeve spoke feir over half an
hour, during which time he endeavored to show the meeting that this
financial stringency which had been
the cause of the most of the trouble
was not confined to South Vancouver.

world's money market was of the very
highest, and thai after ihe Balkan
War   had   been   settled   things   would
sort eiut so that the municipality
would be able t" proceed with the
work she had undertaken to do." He
also went on to show that lhe float-
of the huge Chinese Loan of ��10,-
000,000 at 90 had made the various
municipalities' In ends a very undesirable investment ai the present time.
The water qUMtion was also touched
upon, and he said it was the aim and
object of the council at the earliest
possible moment to proceed to obtain a further grant of "miners'
inches" to ensure a permanent supply of that commodity for all time.
He hoped in the near future to make
a considerable reduction in the water
rate also. During the course of his
speech he was given the utmost attention and. on taking his seat was
greeted  witli. a  round  of cheers.
The next speaker was Councillor
Campbell, who went over practically
the same ground covered by the
Reeve, lie also advocated the abolishment of the vKjird system, which

Times move so fast and history is
made so quickly that in tbe kaleidoscopic changes of municipal matters
at the present lime ii would require
an expert to keep tab on the many
tips and down that are taking place
within ihe municipality. Men are
springing into prominence as leaders
whose very presence in meetings before would have been resented. .A
wave of unrest and uneasiness is
passing over the municipality, its reverberations are being fell in every
corner and ils echoes .are being
thrown back and sound follows sound.
A elians is created, so that no one
can tell what the original sound was.
Nothing can belter describe the conditions of South Vancouver. The
pe.-itiein it finds itself in, bad though
thai position is. is no worse, but
even superior, t'i hundreds of other
municipalities throughout lhe length
and breadth of Canada. Unfortunately, the present juncture has been
seized by some tee air their personal
grouches or get a little prominence
which in normal times could'never
be obtained. The thoughtful and -staid
electors who at all times are the predominant factor in the municipality
an- ruthlessly pushed aside. Excited
aspirants for fame push forward and
hustle each other for who shall get
first place.
In   the  excitement  and  Hurry   that
is   going  on,   who   will   suffer   in   Ihe j i.s nn doubt had the C
end, and who is suffering most now?  *���
The working man who tuils from early morn till late at night; who is ever
lighting against circumstances to pay
his litlle home, who is even  fighting
the gaunt wolf that is standing knocking  at   his  door,  who  knows   that   a
continuance of the present conditions
will   see   his   years  of labor  and   toil
swept   away,   knows   that   none   will
suffer   as   he   will   suffer.     All   winter
long  he  has  hoped  on  against  hope
thiil  with  the coming of the summer
work   would   be   plentiful,   the   little
debts entered into would be cleared
off. back payments on his home would
be  made  up;  but  instead of that  he
finds   himself  up  against    conditions
worse than  those which existed during the winter.    The disappointment
is  such   that  it  makes  the    boldest
heart  quake.    Others may suffer and
many  will   suffer   financially    during
this crisis, but none will suffer as the
working man during this crisis. Why
then slinuld conditions bc aggravated.
Every meeting held gives the municipality a knock. From a sense of fair
play it is but right to give those who
are manning the ship an opportunity
to bring it to port. The Council were
elected hy the people and are there
for the peoples' choice at the time
ibey were elected. The citizens considered they were the best that could
bc obtained and banded over to them
the reins of government for a year
At the end of the year, if the ratepayers are not satisfied with the work
the Council have done, then the
remedy lies in the hands of the electors, who are responsible for the
agitation to turn down thc 'money
By-laws.
Analyse the composition of the
many of the leaders of the new organizations that have sprung up. Few
have a vote either one way or another.
Enquire into the past, the story of
others in regard lo municipal matters
and ascertain if they were always as
assiilinus in looking after tire municipality as Ihey Would like tlie electors tei believe ihey are at present.
Should Smith Vancouver get a setback in her money by-law? At presence set-back will be given (o it thai
il  Willi  lake years  to  recover.
Many eif lhe actions of the Council are open to criticism, but because
one i.s dissatisfied with their work,
is the municipality to be called upon
tee  suffer  a  pecuniary  loss?
The forfeiture of'lhe Little Meitin-
tain I'ark, on which an option at
$12511 per acre is held by the Council
will be only loo gladly welcomed by
the C.P.R., as lhe value of Ibe land
is now upwards of $50(10 per acre. As
for the raising of lhe interest on the
school money by-law, anyone wilh
.in ounce of common sen.se knows
that this is not adding one cent in ilu
taxation, but is a condiliou cr'effted
though the rate of "interest being
less than the other bylaws passed.
Let each elector think the niiitii-r
calmly over for himself, weigh well
llie consequence of his vote. It is the
33-footer who will decide the vote,
either one way or another. The large
holder may be able to hold out for
years during a crisis like the present,
without knowing whin it is to have
a desire unsatisfied, but a continuance means the workingman must
clear out eif the constituency. There
uncil been able
lo have f'.rseen lhe present conditions .ef Ibe money market, their ac-
lie.ns would have been shaped differently. At ihe beginning of the year
tin- people voted certain work to be
done, lly a number of untoward
events, the stringency in the money
market has been such that municipal
bonds are unsaleable in the market.
The dark clouds may soon pass away,
but as long as the present gloom
lasls lhe electors should see that they
mil  carried away with the vapor-
are
ings of those In whom it is no con-
cem whether the municipality progresses or not.
There is another matter that should
be borne in mind at the present time-.
How can we expect, honest, upright
men. who from a sense of duty tn lln
municipality will come forward and
sacrifice their own private business.
so that they may devote the whole of
their time to the good of the municipality fm- the magnificent sum of
$20(1 per year, a Salary less than the
boy gets who delivers your paper.
However, what they do not get in
salary can be given in abuse. Will
any self respecting man come for-
ward and offer to do the municipal
work and stand the jeers and instills
that the present Council have to do.
Meetings for the criticism of municipal work can be made a power of
good for the municipality when hon-
est criticism can be offered to any
policy of the council not satisfactory,
There is no councillor but
what welcomes such criticisms because it enables them tei guage public
opinion, but when invective and abuse
is hurled right and left, when charges
are trumped up and hurled broadcast,
honest criticism hangs its head in
shame and allows abuse and calumny
to reign triumphant To get the best
class of men to represent us in the
Council we should show that it is a
privilege for anyone to be on our
council.
A  Congregation  Being Kept  From
Their Church.
Editor of ilu- "Chinook."
Dear Sir,���Such is the present position of the English Church of Sl.
John's, Central I'ark. Owing chiefly
to the present occupier of the rectory's inability to supply the requirements 'if the position he nominally
fills, the church is practically empty,
the finances are iu a very bad condiliou, and altogether things are in a
deplorable state. We have no ib-sin-
to be harsh with the rector, but as
no dependence can be placed on his
promises, and he is totally incapable
of the position he is now attempting
to lill, his resignation would be gladly
accepted by the majority of lhe congregation, No Social work whatever
is being attempted ior the young
people, and our children are not being brought up iu a Inn- teaching of
the Church of England. Need one
ask why the Church loses her sons
who   come   new   from   a   live   church
full of u-aching and trained in his
work energetically, to find a service
Ihey know not; naturally such cannot join olher churches, and so drift
into indifference, and instead of helping tlie weaker brethren to hold fasl
I'i lhe faith are a help in the Opposite
direction.- under circumstances such
as I have enumerated. Wc are fenced
to ask, where i.s our bishop? especially when we are told, as wc were at
thc service on Sunday morning last,
that the bishop had ordered the service changed (which we hardly believe) from choral to one where
everything shall In- read, which
means that no choir is needed for
the  morning  service.
Will you please allow us this space
in your valuable paper to make known
how tilings actually stand at St.
John's, that a congregation should
have i" endure such incompetence or
neglect by being refused the administration of the Church, which is possible more lo them than any other
possession. Trusting this may draw-
further correspondence on the subject and that our fellow members
may come to our aid. as one weak
branch is but a hindrance to the
growth of the whole body.
Yours  fraternally,
A   PARISHIONER.
Brown���Shephard
A very pretty wedding was solemnized ;it Christ Church. Vancouver, on
Friday, July 11. at 5 o'clock, when

REMEMBERING THE SABBATH
IT is now charged that this Journal is an agency for the
corruption of the morals of the children, Became the
"Chinook" made rather pointed references to the bylaw
introduced by the South Vane..uver council forcing thc
little corner merchant who ha�� apples, ice cream, and
cigars for sale, to close his doors on Sunday, one man
denounces the paper as having an "immoral influence."
His letter appears in another column.
On the British Columbia law books there io an ancient
statute which says that "any person who hath been
found plying a boat on ye Sabbath Day in ye said Colony
of British Columbia, shall be taken into custody by ye
officer of ye law, and shalle be placed in the 'Stocks from
sunrise to sunset, or a period of time equal thereto."
At the time this old blue law was first put in force, any
man stealing a handkerchief was liable to bc hanged and it
wai a grave crime to publish a newspaper. In those days,
too, any man having glass windows in his house had to
pay a heavy tax on each pane.
We assume that it is even possible that our correspondent, in his zeal for keeping tl, Sabbath, avoid] street
cars on that day; does not burn electric lights on that day;
does not keep the furnace going on Sundays; but spends
the holy hours fasting and meditating. Verily, he shall
have his reward, if 'inch be the case. But if his neighbor
wishes to eat an ice cream cone purchased on the Sabbath, or wishes to give his children apples or candies,
purchased on the Sabbath, or wishes to quietly iltnoke a
cigar during the peaceful hours of a Sunday afternoon,
it is his British privilege to do so, and it is beyond the
right of any man to question  that privilege.
All sane men realize that the Sabbath Day should be
kept holy from more than a .spiritual point of view. In
His time, Jesus Christ made certain concessions as regards the keeping of the Sabbath, and His attitude on
the subject was not received kindly by the .scribes and
Pharisees, but was regarded as wildly radical.
If the South Vancouver council applied their minds to
matters of greater importance than that of forcing the Sabbath closing of a half dozen or mere penny sweet shops
throughout the district, more good would result. And the
original criticism appearing in these columns of the Sunday closing ordinance was based on this fact. We understand that great time was spent by the council and the
municipal solicitor mulling over the Sunday closing idea.
Men must eat on the Sabbath Day. Men must drink
on the Sabbath Day. Men require sanitary environments
nn Sabbath Days. Men must pay taxes for every day in
the year. Fires break out and people's homes are burned
down on the Sabbath just thc same as on other days.
Men die on the Sabbath and thieves break through and
steal. There should be ample scope for thc South Vancouver council to make Sabbath Day conditions, and incidentally week-day conditions, better in the district without wasting time and money prosecuting proprietors of dinky little candy shops.
ELEVENTH HOUR PROTESTANTS
IN a forceful letter, Mr. Thomas Dickie has written to
the press condemning the action of the South Vancouver council in proceeding with the paving of Main
and Fraser streets, Ile states that it is an extravagance
to spenel money on such an improvement and points out
that the man owning a certain vacant l"t will have to
suffer greatly because "f the added taxes. He attacks the
council's policy in a calm, straightforward manner, and
the very style of the letter commends it ie. ilu- consideration of the people.
Mr. Thomas Dickie is a large propertj owner iii Sieuth
Vancouver and a gentleman who lias eleeui- much towards
the development of the district. At one' ti-m-. he was
identified with municipal life in South Vancouver, li is
a nieisi surprising thing that Mr. Tin.mas Dickie comes
along with his protest against the paving of Fraser and
Main streets al a time when his protest cannol do very
much good. At die eleventh hour, Mr. Dickie makes
public utterance on the subject���at a time when the actual work of paving is aim. st  to begin,
Their are, in Smith Vancouver, a good number of men
like Mr. Dickie. Shn wd, able nun they may be as far
as their private businesses are concerned, but when it
conies to public matters, they are content to sit back
quietly and whin the horse is well away far beyond recovery, '.hey buy padlocks in wholesale lots for the stable
door.
THE LIBERAL AWAKENING
ENTHUSIASM displayed at several meetings recently
called throughout South Vancouver indicates that
Liberalism is awakening in this district of 40,000 population. A central organization is being perfected by the
Liberal workers, and they declare that the near future
will see South Vanceiuver, from Ontario street to Boundary road, thoroughly organized. Energetic local bu.sine.ss
men are working on the committees of the South Vancouver Liberal Association, and the promotion is receiving general support.
Times, just at the present, are not too prosperous in
South Vancouver, or indeed, throughout Canada. The
Liberal party in the Dominion, and particularly in British
Columbia, is pa.ssing through a period of doubly hard
conditions. There never was before an active Liberal organization in South Vancouver. At this moment, the
party locally, would seem to bc facing an impossible
situation.
It may be taken for granted that the awakening of
Liberalism in South Vancouver at this time is merely an
indication  of what the situation  is throughout the coun
try, with particular regard for British Columbia. In the
local legislature there is no opposition. This is an ab-
normal condition e>f affairs that may have a direct bearing on the welfare ol S'eiith Vancouver. There i^ then a
reason i".,r this activity among the Liberals of South Vancouver. No skilled, crafty party b'iss is behind llle move.
ment���no agitators. Men wine have bertofore never been
identified with politics are calmly working together, organizing and laying the foundations 'if a strong Liberal
unit in the municipality.
Some weeka ago at New Westminster there was celebrated   what   wal  termed  the  "Tenth  Anniversary  of  thc
Introduction  of  Party  Peelities  in    liriti-h    Columbia."
There never has been in this pre evince a system eef parly
peelities���lhat is, as we know parly politic! in Eastern
Canaela and Great Britain���until very recently.    The peeli-
tical liisteery of British Columbia ihowi thai for the moil
part,   political   guerilla   bands   have   dominated   lhe   field.
Today, order having been brought out of the tangle, we
find a stable government at Victoria. Party peelities in
the Province il developing, Party polities in British Columbia will reach maturity simultaneously with the reforms, growing in the conduct of business on the Pacific
Coast, the introduction of which is causing British Ce.l-
umbia individuals and municipalities temporary financial
embarassmeiit.

MR. HORNE PAYNE CRAWLS
MR.   HORNE-PAVNE,  iiead   of   the   British   Empire
Trust Company, and London representative of the
Canadian   Northern,  whose  recent  attack  on  Canadian
municipal securities aroused intense indignation, has
crawled out from under the barn long enough to announce
that hc did not mean it, and that his statements were
only intended tei indicate that Canadian cities were in
the market too frequently. This sounds very much better
than his original statement, which was in part as follows :
"The British investor never favored municipal securities. The last experience is not likely to increase his liking, nor will any rate of interest, however high, tempt more
than a small section of the community to invest in city
bonds. Thc reasons alleged for this dislike arc that cities
raise a constantly increasing and practically unlimited
sum on the same assets; that the city valuation is not an
independent nor reliable valuation."
While it is to be admitted that our Canadian cities, and
especially our Western cities, are over-borrowing, we
should repudiate in the strongest possible terms thc assertion that "cities raise a constantly increasing and practically unlimited sum cn the same assets." That may be
true of Mr. Heerne-Payne's enterprises, but it is not true
eef Canadian  cities.
A very large part of the money raised in recent years
by Canadian cities has gone into reproductive enterprises
such as the Toronto Hydro-electric. Winnipeg's power
system. Calgary's street railway, and other examples of
what is known in England as municipal trading. The
tendency toward public ownership and operation of civic
services is greatly on the increase in Canada. Mr. Horne-
Payne's statement was directed against municipal trading as much as against the issue of civic bonds for thc
building of sewers, pavements, schools, and other necessities of commercial life. Why should money invested
by Sir William Mackenzie and bis associates in the Toronto, Montreal, or Winnipeg street railways be regarded
as "capital" and money invested by the people of these
cities in their corporate capacity be regarded as "debl':"
Many millions have been put into reproductive public
services in Canada during the past decade which go to
swell the total of civic indebtedness. To ignore this and
assert that there has been no corresponding increase of
assets is dishonest and unfair to the Canadian people,
who ought not tee be held up to the British investor as
doubtful risks by a man who has benefited so greatly as
Mr. Home-Payne has from the favors of the Government
of Canada. Sir William Mackenzie makes the Statement
that Mr. Home-Payne spoke only for himself. Next time,
before speaking, he should think of the harm such ill-considered observations arc likely to do to the country in the
prosperity of which Ilis own fortunes are so deeply involved.
Mr.    Douglas   Street   has   returned I
from   Mayiichl,  Manitoba,  where  he
has been teaching school, and reports ;
crops   iu   excellent   condition   anil

This idea of a great and glorious
city and the pride in it of its citizens!
I doubt if there is any worthier emotion. Thc language in which this
priele is expressed is quite childish���
unless we sympathize with it. A man
speaks of "my city" and may not have
ten dollars in the world. It is ours,
and yet no man can grasp it for his
very own, or sell it, eer give it away.
One likes to think of that great apostle
standing before the yelling Jewish
mob and proudly claiming the intangible possession of citizenship, "I
am a citizen of no mean city."
"Great"   Cities.
Vel unfortunately so many cities
that are called great are also mean,
and anywhere a novelist could find
material feer his "Tales of Mean
���Streets." Their greatness has come
by accident or by the irrepressible
genius of individuals���though even
here and there are stories enough of in-
ventors who have died of starvation,
ami poets who have "sold their
Shakespeare for a plate of beef."
London, Liverpool, Glasgow, Chicago,
Xew Vork���what do tluy suggest to
tin- Btudent? First of all ilu- greal
personalities whe. have (bene something lie make these places famous;
but second the lack of sune pervading and controlling architectonic
spirit, as theologians talk about the
immanence of God.   Whal has been
licking has been lhe dominating
spirit .if the community as maker.
To the Creeks "poetes"���poet���
meant maker. All down Hire,ugh his -
lory they have carried a multitude of
separate and often conflicting authorities. And so their cities grew up bil
by bit���yes; but the bits did nol iii
into any permanent and tolerable
scheme eef expansion, and so London.
Liverpool. Glasgow, Chicago ami
Xew York are busy now unmaking
their cities at the cost of millions
and millions of dollars, and worse
still, at the cost of hopeless and degraded human lives, cursed into lieing
from  their  birth,
Still  all  day  the  iron  wheels  go  onward,
Grinding life down from its  mark;
And the children's souls,  which  God
is calling sunward,
Spin on  blindly in  the dark.

Last week the youthful athletes in

new   club   wa-   opened   uneler   auspic-

programme. Ernie Barrieau, the local lightweight, is beexinis' instructor
of the new club, while Al Hatch and
Fred Smith will look after the interests of any aspiring grapplerS.   Kuss
Leighton has been appointed manager and with pneper handling the new
club promises to be a big success.
Close on a hundred members have
already been secured, and it is hoped
tee extend this list tee two hundred before the end of the month. The new
club intends to affiliate with the B.
C. A. A. U. at an early date, but the
management is waiting until things
are in working order before they join
the  ranks of the amateur union.
The boys intend to foster amateur
sport in every manner possible, and
will take an active part in boxing,
wrestling, football, baseball, basketball, cricket, lacrosse, indoor baseball
and other field sports.   A shower bath

rather significient ears, fi ihe unmistakable cauliflower type, hi- features arc very regular. Welsh avers,
and Freddie is a truthful chap, that
he has never had his righl nor his
left eye blackened iu a professional
glove contest.
This statement ot the Briton's recalls an incident associated with the
recent Welsh-Mehegan bout, staged
under the auspices eif the select National Sporting Club of London, England. Welsh had a few weeks previously regained the English lightweight title from Malt Wells and
the till between him and the Australian champion was eagerly antici-
pated. Interest was at such a pitch
that for many elays thc sporting
pages of the Metropolitan dailies con-
taineel generous accounts of the progress of training in both camps. One-
day, forty-eight liemrs from the date
of battle, an enterprising sport writer
discovered that Welsh had received
from one of liis sparring partners a
severe cut above his right eye. A gash
near the eye, particularly above, is
always regarded as extremely dangerous by trainers and boxers, for
experience has taught them that a
well directed blow will re-open the
wound and often decide the outcome
of a bout. No boxer can do himself
justice with blood trickling in his
eye. Moreover, such a condition of
affairs causes irritation and loss eif
mental poise, and. unless a glove man
can retain an even temper, he courts
swift  defeat.
Mehegan, of course, learned of
Welsh's predicament and outlined
a plat) of battle whereby he would
benefit by the accidental jab. No
mention had been made in the news-
Australian, is often quoted as being
a strict vegetarian, which, however.

several times has nearly been realized,

The church, controlled hy the
fortable and well-to-do, is a futile in.
strumenl in the solution of problems
created hy ihe relations eif capital and
labeer. It is ,. conservator of vested
inure-' s an,, ��, irships thi god
things as tl ey are', and until the
church re-establishes Christ's principles of social relations human and
industrial justice must remain a mere
figure  of speech.
In substance, this was the declaration of Dr. .1. A. McDonald, editor
of the Toronto (Ont.) "Globe," in
the principal address before the general assembly of the International
Christian Endeavor Convention at
Los   Angeles   last   week.
"From my point of view as a newspaper man. the churches of Ann rii.,.
alike in the Republic ami the Dominion, have in the past been in danger of losing the national outlook and
becoming mere denominations of the
intellectual and well-to-do," he de-
: clareil.
"All over America there has grown
up iin industrial absolutism more
baneful and much more arroganl than
thai of any Stuari king; bul when is
the church of John Knox that will
stand against tyranny ami oppression fnr lln- wil! fi God anel feer the
rights of man?
Declares   Church   Ignorant.
"What does the comfortable church
nf the well-to-do know about the
problem of wurk or of wages- Hnw
can it hear the passionate cry nf the
children nf America, a million ni them
caught iu the cruel wheels of emr
\;,st. heartless industrial machine?
How can it measure ihe agony nf
women whose only alternative is
starvation  or shame?
"Why? Because nf tlie church's
sencial apostasy. As in the past, so
In,lay the process eef assimilation
livings elements of power anel
efficiency, hut involves also compromise anel weakness. Once again the
church has become the conservator ol
vested interests ami worships 'The
god of things as they are.' "
Dr. McDonald said the problem of
capital and labeir began before Cain
slew Abel, anil reviewing the history
..f industrial oppression in Europe,
declared th;., the discovery nf America turneil casten .-yes westward and
thnt the solving of the workers'
problem was America's tirst promise
tn the w..rid.
"Has America, ether the '."iileil
S'at-.-s or Canada, t.tacle good'" he
asked. "Is our boasted equality ni
opportunity only a figure of speech
and legalized privilege an ugly and
elangereius   fact?
Nemesis   on   Our   Trail.
"Tbe nemesis that dogged the heels
eif industrial i'ljustice in Europe is
on  our own  trait.
"The cries that startled the autocracies  of  Europe arc  heard  now  from
Los A ngeles to New York, and unless
lie  madness  of our industrial  strife
is cued, our boasted institutions will.
in tlu end, .rot at th foundations
and democracy all over America, by
��� ��� irrepressibli and lawless powers
within itself, will work its inevitable
doom."
v�� a remedy Dr. McDonald urged
a return w the mode of living estab-
by Christ and practised by the
; rimitive Christians when "Jews and
Romans, Greeks and barbarians did
live togcthet happily and diel work
together helpfully thn ugh all the relations of industrial service in everyday life."
Chicago was chosen for the next biennial session.    The vote was unanimous   inter   several   ballots   had   been
taken.    Toronto al lirst was a strong
i impi titor.
i he ci etifessional i'i a modified form
for Protestant churches was recommended during the conference by
Rev. Charles M. Sheldon, lie said
that for years in his Congregational-
ist church at Topeka, Kan., for two
hours every Sunday afternoon he had
invited visits fmm members fi his
congreg ttii >n.
Typical   Confessions   Made.
"A man. for example, comes and
tells me of his troubles with his wife,
-I is iait of a job, oi se' i- sick. I
try to advise him. Frequently I can
tell him where to gi : a job or where
tn get money. Sometimes husbands
and wives are united.
"This is an old idea \h\i it is one
which young pastors ever forget The
confessional is one of thret things
which make strong the Roman Catholic Church. It is only human nature
tei tell eene's trembles.    Il may he done
in an informal way and bring good
results."
At last night's session Rev. Francis
K. Clark, president of the United So-
ciety, appealed for especial effort for
future activities beginning February
2, 1914, which date marks the thirty-
third birthday anniversary oi the
movement, He suggested thc setting
aside of a week nf revival tn mark
the beginning nf a new epoch in the
progress of the organization.

Writes that though a  Comparative   Tee-totaller,   He  is
Quite a  Bit of a Tea-toper.

will give a lecture on "coffee" at the
Collingwood   Institute,  and   he   will
make some coffee���as it should be
made���and let yeeu taste it! There
that made me almost forget tea. To
resume!
Tea is called pretty near the same
thing in all languages. Hut some tea
���don't deserve to be called by any
word in any civilized language.
I was at a rooming-house once. I
was not well and my landlady kindly
gave me a cup of tea in my bed. I
had that indulgence for many years.
If there were more wives who so indulged their husbands women's suffrage would have "happened" long
ago���and the divorce court would
have lost half of its business.
"It looks like rain," said my landlady as she gazed out of the window.
"It does," I said, as 1 looked in my
cup, "but I can detect a faint aroma
of some herb or other."
Some of you old fogies from "the
big smoke" may have Heard' Corvcy
Grain sing���
"Fust you take and warm the teapot
Let the water boiling be���
That's a most important feature���
But mind you don't forget the tea."
Yes! the many duchesses, countesses
and ladies I have taken tea with geet
to   know   my   weakness.     "Oh,   here
comes Felix!" was the cry; "put twe>
extra spoonfuls of tea in the pot."
God bless them!
The Chinese call it Telia, Tha and
Te; the Dutch, Te; the Russians, Te-
Te; The French, The; the Italians,
Thai. Just as "a ros^ by any other
name will smell as sweet"���sn 1 don't
care what you call it���but remember
tbe Chinese used it long before we
did. It vvas praised by one Soliman
(he should have been Solotnan), who
tasted it in China and wrote about it
A.D. 850.
Let us hear what the Chinese say
about it.
"A pious hermit, in his watching!
and prayers, had often been overtaken
by sleep. His eyelids closed. In holy
wrath against the weakness of the
flesh he cut his eyelids off and threw
them on the ground. Rut a god
caused a tea shrub to spring out of
them, the leaves of which exhibit the
form of an eyelid bordered with lashes, and possess the gift of hindering
sleep."
Do I believe that story? Every
blessed word of it! Just as surely as
I believe in Santa Claus, Cinderella
and Alladin. 1 am, thank God! a
"Peter Pan" in somethings. I won't
never grow up. Vent don't believe the
tea-story? Well! I am surprised.
Yeiu swallow all lhat is said about
the results of "intensive farming" on
the Grouse Mountain farms, ymi accept what II. II. Stevens says abottt
False Creek and other ihings���and
yet ynu throw ihettht on my innocent
little tea-storyl
Al,! my friend, if you hail ever
taken a pen iii veeur hand mi a Sunday night, and Worked with il, will,
out sleep, as I have done, until thc
following Saturday night, you would
belieie i-i 'he' wondrous property thai
old story claims fnr tea.
Tea was m.t used in Kumpc until
about the seventeenth century. The
Dutch used it before the English.
Before tea was common, the English "female nf Ihe species" drank
infusion nf sage Leaves ami many
other infusions, th,- use of which
might he revived with very beneficent
results.
Dr.   Lettseui   vvre.te   abeeiit   tea,   but
whether tee praise, it  or  met   I   forget.
I   cannot   forget   this   old   Londoner,
however, because of ihe verse���
"When  folks arc sick and come to
me
I physicks. bleeds ami sweats 'em,
If ainr that they choose in 'lie
Well1 what care  I r
1 let- 'em."
i H lerve the pun!  I  like a pun.
Lord Macaulay wrote as follows���
"At the time when Monk brought the
army nf Scotland in London, tea hail
been handed round t" he (tared at
and jusl touched with tlle_ lips, a- a
great rarity from China. Bight years
after, it was a regular article nf import and was soeen consumed in such
e|uaniilii's that financiers began to
consider it a lit subject fnr taxation.!
You may bet your bottom dollar
they did! They taxed light, they taxi
ed knowledge, they taxed the swaddling COthes of lhe babe ami thc
shroud of the dead man. Then there
came, one (lay, some men who
thought that newspapers should be
free of taxes, that the people might
reael. that glass should be free nf
taxes, that people might enjoy good
sunshine. We had a "free breakfast
table," and geeod tea could be got for
less than a dollar and a half a pound.
That's what mother paid feir it when
1  was a boy.
Poets have been inspired by tea as
well as by John Barleycorn. Cowper wrote about tea, and he also incidentally advocated free trade in a
stanza  worth  quoting.
"The bond of commerce was designed
T' associate all the branches of mankind;
And if a bounteous plenty be the robe,
Trade   is   the   golden   girdle   of   the
globe.
Wise to  promote  whatever  end  Hc
means
God  opens   fruitful   nature's  various
scenes;
Each climate needs what other climes
produce
And  after  something  to  the  general
use;
Xo  land  but  listens  to  the  common
call
And  in  return   receives  supply  from
all."
There   is   some   human   reciprocity
about that!   Yes! the poets have written about  tea,  Waller thus eulogises
it :
"The   muse's   friend,   tea,   does   our
fancy aid
Repress those vapors which the head
invade
And   keeps   that   palace   of   the   soul
serene
Fit  on  her  birthday   to    salute    the
Queen."
Leitch Ritchie was a very sensible
man. and he wrote some very sensible
words about tea. "Tea is a rival of
alcohol. The desire for an agreeable
and exhilarating drink is natural to
man; it exists in all states of society. The new beverage (it was new
then)���gratifying the taste as it does
without injuring the health or maddening the brain, must be considered
a blessing to the human race!"
Hear!   hear1
I have written so much about tea
���1 really must have some; "Poor
fellow���got to make his own tea."
Yes. alas! I'm a poor "grass widower"��� I really must send to England
for my wife���She don't talk "suffragette"���She wears a bonnet���and
she makes good  tea.
TO READERS AND
THINKING MEN
Important   Additions   to   the   Collingwood Library.
A gentleman well known as a student, lecturer, ami writer on political
economy and sociology, has Juist left
Vancouver for the East.
Ab he is going travelling he has had
to part with his books and his splen-
did little library (some 250 choice
volumes) has been added to the Collingwood Institute,
Now will you kindly come and look
ut these books?
By  prompt action  I  secured  a  col-
I lection  of books,  variously  estimated
I by experts as worth fi-ain JL'tW to $4(H��.
; for less than $ 1 (mi, which sum will In-
[ elude  special  bookcases  for  the  safe
! and   convenient   housing   of   the   volumes.    I  am sure  the people of Collingwood will join  with me in  thanking the late owner for taking a. low
price lor a lot  Of books whieh wouhl
easily    have   realized    two   or   three
time! the sum 1 paid for them.
1 hope the people of South Vancouver will remember thet these hooli
are tor their use���and they are wor-
| thy their attention.    Will they  please
: also remember that a good friend enabled  me to secure the books  by  a
1 prompt  loan.
Mr. Win. Morris, school trustee, has
kindly promised t'i, another member
of the CollinKwood parliament has
promised a similar sum. Mr. Hinton
$2.    Other help is needed.
The following letter just received
from Mr. Mildmay, M.A., a well-known
literary expert, assures me I did the
right thing in securing the library and
that 1 may reasonably expect the people of South Vancouver to help me
pay for it.
Here Is Mr. Mlldmay's letter:
"To J. Francis Bursill, Vancouver,
June 28, 1913.
"Dear Mer. Bursill���I thank you tor
affording me the pleasure c. an inspection of the little library which
you have just purchased for the Institute at Collingwood. I congratulate
Collingwood���Indeed, the Province���
on the fact that this collection of
books was secured In Its entirety; to
have broken It up would have been a
sin. I can easily understand that
such a library���so well selected���will
make Collingwood the ineeca of students of political economy, sociology
and metaphyslce.
"It seems to me���speaking entirely
off hand���that such a collection Bhould
have been worth some $200 or $250,
and if you have secured It for $100
you deserve the thanks ,of the community. A sense of gratitude will
very readily prompt the payment ot
that amount.
"If there are those who believe that
'books are passing away' this exhaustive object lesson of the world's
thoughts on sociological topics���during the present generation ��� should
correct that gospel of despair.
"Yours faithfully,
"AUBREY ST. JOHN MILDMAY."
Representatives of the News-Advertiser and other papers have seen these
bookB and the Vancouver papers
warmly congratulate Collingwood on
acquiring a library of which a university might be proud.
Let me add that a letter addressed
to the library, Collingwood East, will
be welcome���especially If it contains
a little cheque���or even a "shin-plaster."
Come and See the Books
Every Tuesday and Friday evenings
the library is open from 6 to 10 and
books are given out for home reading.
Books may also be had whenever
there is anybody at the library.
Preparations are being made for
painting the building during August,
and a splendid programme of lectures,
concerts and social entertainments
are being arranged for the autumn
and  winter months.
Please let this note elicit some response.

WHAT IS IT?
So far we have been unable to find
from Chinook subscribers the proper
title to this picture. It is a mystery.
One man says it's the roots of a
horse radish plant, another, that it is
"an elephant." Others declare that it
is a map eif Mexico. Some say it's a
picture  of  a   gigantic   toad,
Send in the right caption for the
picture.    The  lirst eme  to  (hi so will
re ceive  a  year's   subscription   to   the

MISS E.  BLACKMAX.

To the Editor of tbe "Chinook" :
Sir,���Your "Mystery" picture in the
