What B.C. Gas Co. Franchise
Would Give South Vancouver
Exact Terms and Conditions Upon Which Well-known
Company Seeks to Enter Municipality���Company's
Official Explains Franchise
As great interesi is being shown
throughout South Vancouver con-
erning the provision of a gas supply
which would make the municipality
u-ii more desirable for residential
settlement, a representative of the
��� Chinook" yesterday visited iln- office of ilu- Vancouver Gas Company
and made special enquiry concerning
the proposals ol the British Columbia Gas Companj to the- South Van-
ceiuver authorities concerning a gas
franchise  for  the municipality.
"I am glad tn have tin- opportunity,"
said an official eii th,. company, "to
explain through your columns the
conditions een which it will be pos-
-ible fur iiiy Company tn arrange for
the service- of a gas supply tee South
Vancouver adequate t., the needs of
your rapidly growing district, Ami
!-��� tin needs 'ef tin- case I eh. imt
think there- is much question a- al
tin- presenl time tin- Company has
received re-epie--t- from about 1500
residents of tin municipality feir a
service covering ilu- field.
"Tin- British Columbia lea- Company is a concern with ample capital which plans in generate ihe- gas
supply fm- iln- entire district ..i Gn al
er Vancouver, iis territory covering
Vancouver, south Vancouver, Poinl
Crey and other points, It i- tin- intention al an early date t" -tart operations 'en   iln-  constructi f   a
large modern generating planl which
"ill lu- tin- in,i-1 up-to-date mi the
Pacific coast, gas being transmitted
from this plant t.. the- various distributing stations nf the- Company
The advisability 'ef such a central
generating plant ior a large- centre
was recently strikingly demonstrated
in New York city. Some year- ago
a company supplying gas fen- New
Yurk arranged for tin- construction
of a number nf -mall generating
stations at v.-ii.u- points. Careful
observation e.f the operations showed thai this plan ivas not economic
nr advisable and all these stations
have- now been closed and at a cosl
tu the company of millions the gas
supply system 'if the metropolis of
iln- continent has been rearranged
with one- great central generating
plant at the Astoria works. The
I!. C. C>as Company in planning for
the needs of Greater Vancouver desires tee do thim,'- right, anil fur lhat
reason, is planning feer one central
generating plant. Under such conditions ilu- manufacture and distribution ��� ���)' gas can In carried eeut under
the most modern working conditions
and provide a service which is better iu every way than is possible
with a small isolated generating plant.
"According t" our plans the- central distributing station for South
Vancouver would be located in the
Grandview elisirict. Vancouver. Iln-
hie-all.m i- well situated for South
Vancouver's needs a- it is nearer tn
the Municipal Hall than it is tn thc
Wesl   End  of  Vancouver,  a  district
throughout    �� hie 11   Iln i e-   i-   a    hi avy
demand for gas.
"It is possible thai n--iele-nts of
South Vancom ,-i n aj take exception
in ih.- plans uf iln it. C. Gas Company as I have ju-i noted them, believing that it would In- more tn the
advantage of ilu- el.-trict it the- company's original proposal of installing
a separate generating station in thc
municipality wa- carried out, I
weeulel point "tit. Innvi ver. that under
modern working conditions tin number uf employees needed for tin- actual making ol gas i- ieduced to a
minimum and tin i stablisbmenl nf a
generating plant sufficient for thc
needs uf South Vancouver is of comparatively Huh- importance from the
standpoint of tin- employment eif labor. As a matter oi fact, the construction and sales departments nt
the company will employ many more
persons than the generating plant.
And right here, 1 may say, that ill its
plans for Soulh Vancouver the company ]irni>e>M-s In establish a depot
for the distribution uf supplies and
direction ��� >f ils w irk, as well as
maintain an office and showroom,
Within the limits of the district.
"The delivery fi gas tu South Vancouver at an early date appears lu ;
be- tin desire fi residents 'if iln- municipality. And rn meet this condition
the plans ,.f the II. C. Gas Company
cover iln- case admirably. Our position is such that we are able- tu offer
a gas supply earlier than i^ possible
in any other way. According tee our
plan- tlie C.iinpany would generally
establish ils mains in South Vancouver within nine nieeiulis, but in many
sections gas could be supplied in an
even  much  shortt r period.
"The question of the price tee be-
charged fen- gas is one in which your
readers will In- greatly interested.
Th,- offer ui tin- It. i'. Gas Company
provides fur a uniform rate fi $1.50
per thousand cubic feet (with a < 1 is-
cotinl nf 111 cent- per thousand for
prompl payment) fm- tin- first five
years. Tin- men connected wiih tin-
company have had th ��� benefit nf the
experience gained by supplying gain Vancouver for many years ami
know jusl what can In- done wilh
safety in tin- fixing of tin- rale. Ami
I am talking fairly ami squarely when
I saj thai tin- rate the company offers South Vancouver is as low as
ii could pi ssibly be made- under prevailing conditions, lu tin- drafl fran
chisc presented I" the Council certain maximum rates are noted but
iln- provision i- inserted merely in

$1.50 figure after the live year term
nub--- with ilu- consent uf tin Coun
e-il  or an  arbitration  award.
"Tin- company is asking tin- municipality fur a franchise extending
over 23 year- ami when one remembers what il means to raise money
fur carrying imt tin- undertakings of
,i gas company I think this term will
In- considered perfectly fair. At thei
end oi that time, on giving twenty-!
four months' notice, the municipality
may purchase tbe system at a valu-
t ii oi.
���The offer nf lhe II. C. Oas Com-!
pany contemplates the laying of eight ,
miles   of   mains   within   a   reasonable;
time.     Of   course,   we   are   nut   after:
the business and if requests fur connections are made demanding a mileage   above   this   stipulation   arrangements  tu  meet   the  conditions    will
probably   be   made,    'hn-    proposal
covering   thc   subject   of    extensions
provides   that   the  distribution   pipes
shall be  laid  in  any  block  within 300
feet nf our mains provided a  speci-'.
Red number of applications are made1
I for the extension and that an excessive annnml of pipe per consumer isi
not demanded. The provisions gov-!
erning the location and lhe laying ol

which proposes that the company

SEWERS   HOLDING  UP
PERMANENT PAVING
Thai tin- Greater Vancouver sew-
erage scheme was holding up the
wurk fi permanent paving in South
Vancouver wa- tin- statemcnl made
by Reeve Kerr at a meeting of the
board of Murk- last  Friday.
Reeve Kerr suggested that a double line uf sewers along i ach stn el
and 24ft. wide paving for all residential streets would be the best plan.
IK- believed thai by having a sewer
along each side uf the street, between the- curb ami the sidewalk, it
would, while- costing more in the
lirst place, prove a saving in the
long run by obviating tlie tearing up
��� if the streets every lime a new connection  had  lu be made.
Chairman Wilbers referred tn the
importance of maintaining the streets
iu good condition.
Reeve Kerr .-aid that in proposing
twenty-four font streets for residential centres in South Vancouver when
streets of Ihis width are possible bethought it woulil be belter than having to tear up pavements continually
fur the installation of sewers, to run
two sewers along each road, bordering the sidewalks.
Councillor Third proposed lhat all
sewers should be laid in thc lane-.
especially through all C. I1. R. property west of Bridge street.
.Municipal Engineer Clement pointed "lit that two sewer lines could imt
be laid "ii narrow streets. It cost
jusl as much to make excavations for
each of two sewer lines along the
streets as for one large sewer up the
middle. The value of the pipes was
proportionately small, while thai of
the  excavation  was  what  counted,
Councillor Dickinson moved thai
thc (.'hail-man of the Board of Works,
the Reeve and the City Engineer be
a committee to bring in a reporl mi
a plan uf action as tn iln- laving of
sewers and the laying "in  oi roads.

SATURDAY, MAY 10, 1913
CENTRAL PARLIAMENT
Large  Attendance  Greets  the  Delegates  from  the  Women's  Social
and Political Equality  League
I" Municipal Hall was crowded
te. its utmost capacity last Friday
night when delegates from ihe- \\ o
men's Social and Political Equality
League of Vancouver addressed the
members from the bar of the House.
Besides tin delegation there were
numerous other members of the fair
se\   pre lent  and  they  lent  a  dash  of
color to the usual sombre aspect of
the House.
The   Prime   -Minister   on   behalf   of
the llmi-e- extended a warm welcome
to the visiteers. The Speaker then
called upon Mrs. Fearn. This lady
made a guud impression and gave a
very good historical account eif the
women's light for the vole. She endeavored to sinew that only by a
clerical error in the Reform Hill had
the women been denied the vote and
that should a woman's name appear
by accident on the register she was
perfectly  entitled   tu   vote.
The nert speaker was Miss Dullcy,
and her witty little sallies were thoroughly enjoyed hy the House. She
took as her subject thc book entitled
"The Country of the Happy Parallel,"
and treated the subject nicely. In
the course of her address she showed
that this "Country" was quite unorthodox. The men performed all the
manual labor and did all the unskilled work. The higher positions were
held by the women, as were the state
positions, medicine, law. tlie line arts,
;tc. Men wcre debarred from vot-
ng and wcre uneducated. Unmarried
lien were given the right to vote and
ihe showed that this was the beguiling of the end. They act about
erecting schools for boys and in
cmirse of time there sprung up a de
mand   for   manhood   suffrage.    The
"militancy" went cn until a shipload
ut 1600 weemen one day arrived al the
"country." They wen- surprised at
the unusual conditions in this country, they having been expelled from
another country for demanding the
right   to   vole.
The speaker told lhe story in a
humorous way tind she went on to
show that Ibis was the means of
bringing about a reconciliation between the two sexes and they "lived  happy ever after."
The lasl speaker was Miss Gutter-
idge, who treated the subject in a
masterful way.    She showed the var-
| ions injustices women suffered under
Ihe system of man-made laws, and
endeavored to show that women were
equally as well equipped as men men-
i tally for the duties of law-making.
The  Prime  Minister  having thank-
I ed the ladies slated that it was not
within the province of the government at this time lo bring in a bill
giving women the vote, but hinted
that if they could get the general
body   of   the   public   converted   then
| would be the time. They had his
sympathy however.
A genera! discussion followed :
Councillor   Thomas,   School   Trustee
; Campbell. Messrs Lamond, Feast.
Hilton,   Rankin,   Hill,   the   Clerk   of
I the   House,   and   others   taking   part.
j The consensus of opinion  seemed  to
| bc in favor of the women and the
speaker wound up Ihe speechifying
by showing that iu Australia where
tin- women have the vote he had
never found them to bc anything bin
beneficial to public life.
'The  lady speakers  replied  and  the
j House  shortly afterwards  adjourned.

In  February "f last year Mr. C. A.

lie attended the annual cement  show.
During this  visit   Mr.  While  made a
very careful and thorough inspection

decided on the best  specimens, as regards     material     and     workmanship.

They were well received and patiently
listened to. The surprise of the evening was when Mr. Bracewell came
out flat-footed against the gentle sex.
Mr. Bracewell being at the impressionable age and a bachelor, his sympathies ought to have been with the
young ladies. They were rather
pleasant speakers, witty, and quick
at repartee. Mr. Jacques in following Miss Guthrie soon found himself
floundering in unknown waters. The
lady's answers were a bit too quick
for him. Once he thought he had
her cornered for an answer but Mr.
Young, the building inspector, took
up  the  cudgels  on   thc  young  lady's
barrel of water and soon made South
Vancouver poorer by the death of

I Methods   to   ai a lerate   the    hurried

down  i'i "brass  tacks"  their

the pace is oft times slow,    Il is the
mills "i tin- gods over again.
tin the through transcontinental
line of the Grand Trunk- Pacific Railway in tlu Fraser Lake district of
liritish Columbia there is hut one
townsite at Fraser Lake which bears
the imprint of progressive activity
and earlj greatness, together with the
hall-mark of thc railway's unqualified
approval. That townsite i-. l-rasi-r
Lake townsite, named after the lake
itself, and it is at the hael of navigation for over eene thousand miles
of inland navigable waters. I!"ats
can run up from Soda Creek to Fori
George by the Fraser River, and
thence up the Nechaco River tei Fraser Lake townsite. Boats will also
be running through from Tete Jaune
Cache to Fraser Lake early the present year. After two months steady
wurk on the Xechaco River, I lessrs.
Foley, Welch and Stewart, whe, are
building the Grand Trunk Pacific
main line, have made the river absolutely clear and sale for navigation
from its mouth, where it empties into
the Fraser River, to Fraser Lake, a
distance of more than one hundred
miles. They arc now in a position to
load iheir fleet of transports at Tele
Jaime Cache and run them Straight
down the Fraser and up the Nechaco,
a clear waterway of 420 miles.
The situation of Fraser Lake town-
site is a rare combination of beauty
and utility. The lay of thc ground is
almost level, there being a gentle
slope upward toward its outer boundaries. From almost any poinl one
may obtain a superb view of the lake
ilself and of the surrounding country.
Here Nature would seem to have
tinted the landscape with her most
glorious colors. The panorama.spread
before the eye is a picture of exquisite
beauty, entrancing in its loveliness.
As a matter of fact the Opinions of
many world-wide travelers are that
the opportunities existing at Fraser
Lake for Ihe establishment of a tourist-haunted pleasure resort are unexcelled. No other spot along the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway in Rrit-
isb Columbia is al all comparable tee
Fraser Lake townsite in this respect.
The bathing facilities are excellent,
the waters of lhe lake and adjacent
streams abound with large gamey
trout, such as the Rainbow and Dolly
Varden, and there are salmon, carp
and whitefish in abundance. Tn the
surrounding district there are deer,
cariboo and bear, partridge, grouse
and prairie chicken. Along the shores
of the lakes and small streams arc
ducks, geese and other waterfowl innumerable.
The climate is considerably milder
than that of many other parts of the-
interior of Rritish Columbia. Springtime is earlier than in any olher district along the line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific between Hazelton and
Fori George. Just why this should
be it is difficult to say. The credit.
however, for litis pleasing favor is
usually given i" the lake. Winter
snowfalls come to slay about the
middle of November, and disappear
early In April. The ground is ready
for the seed at the beginning of May,
and oftentimes a week or more earlier. Summer days are warm, nights
are   Co.el.     Rainfall   there   is   aplenty,

SPORT AND PUBLICITY
/"���liRTAIN people have been raising objections to
the
V^ location of boxing arenas in South Vancouver. Some
are for their prohibition altogether; others object mainly
to thc introduction of "professional" boxing. As to the
former class, they arc the kind of cranks who would prohibit every form of entertainment or sport that does not
conform to their own peculiar and narrow-minded notions
They are the people who think pool playing or billiards
demoralizing, lacrosse a dangerous game, football brutal,
theatrical shows immoral and dancing too gay. That they
should now object to boxing contests is only the natural
development of their intolerant and restricted processes
of mind.
There are some other people who arc reasonable and
broad-minded enough to see no harm in boxing by amateurs, but who view with alarm the same sport indulged
in by professionals. It is considered by these people that
professionalism degrades lhe noble art of self-defense
and that a rough and shady class of spectators will frequent the arena, The same objections can bc advanced as
regards almost any other kind of sport. Because there
are black sheep among ministers of the gospel or among
church attendants d"es not necessarily condemn religion
in toto n.a- the frequenting of places of divine worship.
Thc same spirit of toleration should be extended towards
professional boxers, lacrosse players or the people who
attend  these sports.
Professionalism cannot nowadays be eliminated from
the pursuit of sport. While ignoble elements may sometimes enter into professional lacrosse, boxing or any
other sport, a whole system cannot be justly condemned
because of superficial excrescences. The facl remains
that professionalism, on the whole, has tended to raise the
standard of proficiency in sport and kept alive a healthy
public interest in athletic games and training.
From an advertising point of view the location of the
proposed racing stadium and boxing arena will be a good
thing for South Vancouver. A municipality must take
advantage oi every legitimate means offered of people
visiting South Vancouver and seeing for themselves the
land and its surroundings. The proposed sport attractions will help in that direction. Other municipalities of Greater Vancouver are granting boxing permits,
probably with the same purpose of additional publicity.
yne hae! decisively in.'iucnccd many adventurers and home
leekcri of lhe old land to seek their fortune in Canada
)n lhe whole, the influence of the novels of these writer-
,cas a healthy anil inspiriting one.
Hut when deeds of crime and violence were commit tie
by  the  youth   of   America  or   Great   Britain   the   "dim
novel"  or  "penny  dreadful"  were  often   declared  to  be
not many years ago, the chief inspiring agent.    No doubt
even  now the red-light literature of the present day is
not without ils baneful influence.
Since the coming, however, of the dime and nickei
moving picture shows, it has often been asserted and
sometimes acknowledged that scenes of crime there de
picted have prompted Imitation among youth of volatile
susceptible or criminally-predisposed character. If tin
noble deeds of heroism and the portrayal of "virtue rewarded" iu these same picture shows incite to similai
action, perhaps  the balance is on  the side of virtue.
But another provocative agent of evil has been recently the subject of awakening public interest across the
line. This is (he "comic Sunday supplement." A few
days ago a rancher of Monroe, Washington, brought an
action against the parents of boys whose "Sunday comic
supplement" pranks had caused great damage to his
property and serious impairment of his health. Among
other desperate acts the boys had tied toy balloons to
his prize rooster, terrorizing thc rest of the chickens; put
gasolene in a brooder lamp, burning up a lot of chicks;
fed carrots sprinkled with coal oil to his horses with
dire resulls, and tied a hat on a calf, thereby causing its
mother to jump the fence and escape. At the time of
writing the result of this memorable action is not known.
In the meantime, it is devoutly to be hoped that an epidemic of this comic supplement kind of crime will not
reach the farming districts of this province.

SEE CANADA FIRST
TO young children 'if today the moving picture shows
arc of absorbing and perpetual interest, and children of a larger growth can derive from them considerable
amusement, if imt instruction. No doubt the chief aim
and end of (he "movies'- is amusement or pleasant entertainment, and that they generally "fill the bill" is evident
from their generous patronage.
There seems to be, however, in lhe great majority of the
moving picture theatres in Vancouver and vicinity a
somewhat tiresome predominance of American scenes.
Many of these pictures of California, Mexico, New York
and Arizona are well worth seeing; and are we not told
in gorgeously colored posters to "sec America first?"
That is reasonable enough, but when it comes lo being
"first, last and all the time," it begins lo get just a trifle
monotonous. The United Stales is not the only country in thc world with beautiful scenery���there are others.
In Canada there arc stretches of mountain, lake and river
scenery unsurpassed for beauty or grandeur by any across
the line, and which are even less known lo thousands e,f
residents of Vancouver than the wild and woolly west of
the States now so familiar lo lhe patron of the moving
picture show. There are even rolling prairies, reckless
cowboys and dashing cowgirls, in favored parts of this
great Dominion, Nor do all the passionate lovers, beauteous maidens in distress, desperate crooks, heroic firemen or infallible detectives belong to the United States;
there are some in Canada. Nor do all the huge dreadnoughts and swift cruisers in the world fly "old glory";
there are a few that still sport the "Union Jack." Nor
were all the famous battles in the world's history fought
in the country of our dear neighbor; there were some
not inglorious martial feats performed on Canadian or
British soil in the days that are gone.
A grown up and well read man will still find a sort of
subdued pleasure in seeing these one-sided cinematograph
pictures; like the man listening, perforce, to the preacher
whose dogma he cannot accept,- he can still retain his
own opinion. But to the young child, eager and impressionable,, or the uninformed foreign immigrant whom il
is desired to assimilate to Canadian ways, a quite erroneous and misleading impression of Canada and. the British Empire is derived from the majority of these moving
pictures.
But after all, who's to blame? Not lhe American film
manufacturer who wants lo sell his films, nor the moving
picture proprietor who apparently cannot obtain from
British or Canadian film dealers the kind of pictures tbat
would sometimes appeal, as a change, to frequenters of
moving picture theatres. Mere is a chance for an enterprising Canadian to manufacture films of scenes in both
Canada and the United States. He might profitably adopl
the molto of "seeing Canada first," but a few piclur,
these strange lands, Great Britain, France, Germany an,!
Italy might be thrown in by way of variety.
THE NEED OF INDUSTRIES
A T the present time one of the most pressing needs
**   of South Vancouver is the location of industries in
the municipality.    Recently there has been a waking up
to  thc  urgency  of  this  matter  in  Vancouver  city,  New
Westminster, Burnaby and other parts of Greater Vancouver.   In both the former named cities special arrangements  have been  made by the  councils  and  boards of
trade to secure reliable dala as to industrial requirements.
Publicity bureaus and industrial commissioners have been I
appointed to lake such measures as may conduce to the
greater  industrial  development  of the  districts  concern-'
ed. j ��� ���
It was staled some weeks ago by  Mr.  Blair, lhe sccrc- i
lary of the Vancouver Board of Trade that the work of the
new industrial committee of that body would not bc con-'
lined  lo  the city limits, but  that  the  interests of South I
Vancouver and other parts of Greater Vancouver would I
be also studied.    While such intentions arc sensible and
welcome enough, it is obvious  that South Vancouver  ��� >r-
any other municipality  must  rely,  iu  thc  last  resort, on
the publicity work of ils own local public bodies.
11 seems singular that when the industrial committee
of (lie Vancouver Progress Club was requested a couple
of weeks ago by the Great Northern Railway company
for data as to the industries of the city, no such information was then available. Since then it is understood that
steps have been taken to prepare a complete list of all
the industries and manufactories in Vancouver. The condition of laissez fairc that this incident reveals does not
suggest lhat any great efforts, if any, have been hitherto
made by the public bodies of Vancouver to induce the
location of industries in the district Tor years ihe woeful lack of an adequate industrial payroll in Vancouver
has been discussed at meetings, in houses, railway cars
and on the streets, but nothing apparently has been done
by the public bodies to help towards the increase of industries.
Both   Burnaby and  New Westminster arc now making;
special   efforls   lo   induce   manufacturers   to   locate   their I
factories  within  their  districts,  the  civic  and  board  of I
trade bodies co-operating towards that end.    Soulh Van-
couver could do worse than emulate the activity and enterprise of these two districts in this direction,
This week  South  Vancouver  Council  received a communication   from   the   barristers  acting  for  a    company
�� hich proposes to erect lumber mills of which the plant j
will cost $65,000, as well as planing mills and a box factory.    It was asked by the barristers whether, if the mills!
were located in South Vancouver, the municipality would'
grant exemption from taxation for a period of ten years, I
and a  maximum assessment  of $65,000 for  a  subsequent !
ten years.   As the whole proposition requires further con- ]
sideration, the promoters of the company were requested j
to attend another meeting of the Council.    It is to bc
hoped that, without prejudice lo any existing local interests, special efforts will bc made to induce the company
lo locale in South Vancouver.

INCENTIVES TO RASH DEEDS
TTHERE was a time when certain popular authors were
1     often accused of inspiring the high  spirited youtl
of Great Britain and this continent to rash deeds and mo
mentous actions.    Captain Marryat and Dana sent man'
a lad to sea;  Charles  Lever and James  Grant induce
thousands of youths to follow the drum; Mayne   Read
and Fenimore  Cooper  have enticed countless men ar.
boys to the tropical countries of South America and tl
lands where famous Leatherstocking trailed deer and Ri
Indian.   It has been often asserted that thc tales of Ball:
1 WEE THREE-YEAR-OLD boy named Roy Mitchell
got lost the other day in the streets of South Vancouver.
After wandering about for twelve hours the little fellow
was discovered still clasping safely a iin of cream put in
his charge. This babe lost in thc streets had thus early
commenced to live up to that famous motto���"What we
have we'll hold."

It's too bad, The only chance of South Vancouver "gelling back" at Burnaby seems to be by challenging the

is inevitable from South Vancouver'* point of view.

The Tailored Suit
Economy   ai   a   fine   art   is   inauy-
sided,  lays  a  writer  ill   Vogue.   It  is
achieved   at   one     lime     by      scciu-
inglj lavish expenditure and at another by pariiinonioui savings. The
beat instance' oi ihe former is ill lhe
tailor made suit, which i-, no matter
what either eoltutne is e.r is met ie-
quired, an essential in every wardrobe. Nol only is it worn by lhe
majority eef women more constantly
than any other costume, but it is the
une   in   which  she appeals  before  lhe
public at large, and consequently the
.nu by which she is judged for smartness eer the hick of il. The suit, beine,
the backbone eef the wardrobe, as it
wen, anel subject to hard wear, must
bc of good material, and the cut
musl be above suspicion. There can
be no question of the ecomony oi
ihis. A fairly good material soon
losi's its body or early becomes shiny
or threadbare, while a really good one
withstands  the  onslaught    of    haid
wear twice as long, and even when
old, retains much of thc original distinction.
As long as the line is right and the
material good, the simpler the style
the better. This very simplicity of
cut, however, at once proclaims itself
as good or had. Xo trimming may be
used lo hide defects; style must be
cut into the cloth and skill must bc
used in the sewing. Simplicity, cut,
and skilled workmanship are, therefore, the three essentials. A costly
trio these, and in consequence, the
tailoreel suit always requires a considerable outlay' of money. Just how
much is spent is, of course, comparative, bul, generally speaking, it is
wiser to invest more in a tailored
suit than in a gown.
A suit carefully chosen as to mode,
new but not too eccentric iu lines, and
made of good, plain-colored material,
should last two seasons. For this rea-
seni it is well to follow the more conservative of lhe new fashions���out on
no account should a suit on the extreme lines ot an over-prevalent mode
be ordered, for the style will surely
be passed before the suit shows signs
of   wear.
When there is but one suit the color
should bc inconspicuous. The dark
blues, browns, purples, and talipes
will neither be remembered by others
nor become tiresome to the wearer.
The severely plain tailored suit with
a manish finish and made in the prevailing lines of lhe mode is the least
expensive and most serviceable type
of suit to order.
The semi-tailored suit comes next
in point of general utility. Here cutaway lines may be employed; the
collar and rcvers may bc a trifle
deeper than ill the regulation cut, and
in many instances a vest of another
color is added. Serges are excellent
lor such  a  suit.
Thc Russian blouse suit also appears in many attractive forms, and
lends itself admirably to the finely-
ribbed wools or wool and silk materials. A very effective model opens
at one side over a tiny vest, and is
trimmed with ornamental buttons
and loops, which do not fasten, for
the coat is hooked to the vest, which
may be of the same or a contrasting
color. Only on the high stand-up
collar do the buttons really work, and
to fasten it at the side, under the

Where Women Propose
So far as proposals of marriage are
concerned in New Guinea it is always leap year, for there the men
consider it beneath Iheir dignity to
notice women, much less to make
overtures   of  marriage.
Consequently the proposing is left
lo the weemen lo do. Wlifii the elu ny
belle falls in love wilh a man she
sends a piece of siring to his sister,
e.r if he has no sisler, to his mother,
ejr another i'i his laely relatives. Then
the lady who received the siring tells
lhe dusky Adonis lhat the particular
damsel is in love wilh him. No courting follows, however, for it is con-
-iiii red had form to waste time in
such   a   pursuit.
If the man thinks he would like to
wiel the lady he meets her alone and
they decide straightaway whether to
marry or drop tin' idea. In the former ease ihe betrothal is announced.
'1 he man is then branded on the
baek with charcoal, while a mark is
cut into the woman's skin. No breach
eef promise actions are possible in
Xew Guinea, though if the lady is
jilted her friends may hunt the lover
up and go for him.

Window   Boxes
It is time lo make ready Ihe win-
deeiv boxes, and very lover of flowers
rejoices. In city or country, nothing
gives a more interesting character to
a house than well filled and cared
fur window boxes. In France this
fact is really understood. The humblest cottages arc often gay with
flowers blooming on the window sills.
Even the business houses there have
made  use  of  the  window  boxes.
One of the great dressmakers,
whose name is known all over the
world, appreciating the suggestion of
charm -and coolness which flowers
give, has the windows of his business establishment fitted out with
boxes filled with perfect, growing
flowers. In the summer time, when
many of his foreign patrons visit
Paris, his business house makes an
altogether beautiful spot in a neighborhood which is itself attractive
enough.
One thing lo remember in planning
window boxes is that it is better to
have a definite color scheme in mind
and to buy flowers which conform to
Ihis scheme. For instance, pink and
white can be carried out with pink
geraniums and marguerites; scarlet
and iireeu with rid geraniums and
ivy. Sweet alyssuin. ageratiim and
marguerite*, with white edged viina,
make a charming combination of blue
and while. Heliotrope, white geraniums anil ivy are interesting for a
lavender white box.
Potted plants sunk iu a boxful of
nn ess can he used, or else the Mowers
anel vines can be planted directly in
Iln soil. If the moss-tilled box is
Used the plants can be changed freem
time i'e time without much trouble,
bill possibly they do better when they
an   i.e..led ill the soil of the box.
A metal box is suitable for holding
the moss, but wood makes the belt
box iu which flower! are to be plant-
eel directly. Cypress, authorities say,
is the best wined, and although it
ceesls a little more te> begin with it
outlasts any  other kind.
The soil should be very rich���the
smaller the box lhe richer the soil
must be. The bottom of the box
should bc punctured with inch-wide
holes iu several places, and bits of
broken Bower pots should be so ar-
ranged over these holes as to make
good drainage sure. Rich soil can be
bought from a florist, or it can be
brought from the woods in bags or
boxes. Wood soil should generally
he mixed with sand for use iu winter
. boxes.
Nasturtiums are satisfactory grow-
I iis ill boxes. The dwarf variety
should be thinned out to stand six
inches apart. The flowers should be
picked regularly, if this method is
followed blossoms can bc had all
summer, until frost kills the plants
in the fall.
Climbing nasturtiums can bc combined with those of the dwarf habit,
twb climbing plants at each of the
iwo corners of the box nearest tbe
window can be trained over a cord
or a trellis made of wood which follows thc outline of the window frame.
It is not well to train any plant on
wire, as the wire heats quickly in hot
SUO, burns the stems twined about it
and ultimately causes thc death of th
plant.

Established about four years ago,
the business of the Royal Nurseries
lias increased manyfold and large additions are being constantly made to
the already immense slock of plants
and shrubs. A new building to be
used for a flower house, packing
room, seed warehouse, and office purposes is nearing completion, while
various olher improvements are being introduced.
Planting, see ding and all that pertains to ihe delightful and profitable
tending of gardi ns being now an engrossing occupation with many, a re-

and decoration purposes,
Outside the greenhouses are grown
hardy herbaceous perennial, alpine
and rock plants of innumerable varieties. The alpine plant department of
the Royal Nurseries is a comparatively new feature, their cultivation having only been introduced a year ago.
These alpine plants, especially of the
secdum, saxifrage, and sempervirens
classes of which there are thousands
..I varieties, are especially suitable
feir the soil and climate of British
Columbia. Several acres are set apart
for the cultivation of these alpine
anel  herbaceous    plains    under    cold
ames. Special attention is also
given to the growth of pansies and
���ie.las, ih-.se lovely hued and velvet-
textured flowers, familiar in song and
pular in home.
Bedding plants, such as geraniums,
l.tbelias,    calceolarias,    asters,     and
ansies   are   here   stocked     in     their
liousands.    This year, for example,
ihere have been propagated over 60,-

Q!?f^$^^
With a clear lead in tbe North-
western League race the Vancouver
team returned t" Athletic i'ark this
week where they arc entertaining Joe
(.'e.hn's Indians. Next week the
Beavers will meet Beattie, and  then
j they  will   have   met all the   teams  in
ih,' league once.
Tee   dale   the   Beavers  have   sbeiwn
superiority over the teams they have
met    There   is  n.e doubt but   thai   lhe
Vancouver pitching staff lias been
going along at a last clip and this
fact has played an important |>nrt in
the Hctorles oi the Vancouver club.
Bob Brown is str.,it^ in twirlers this
year, in fact much stronger than in
many years past though hc had a
great trio of youngsters last season.
However, where the hulk of the work
fell on their shoulders last summer,
Ihis year the club is equipped wilh al
least six pitchers w|]e, are callable eif
taking iheir places in the box twice
each week. This gives tlie chib a tremendous advantage over a year ago
and will have a greater effect on their
standing than a casual glance would
indicate. Strong pitching staffs are
to a great extent the difference between top and cellar championships.
The fact must not be lost track of
cither that tbe Heavers have been
hitting lhe horsehide at a fiendish
rate. They had a bad slip in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago when
Ilynes, a former Canadian League
slahsler, let   them  down without  the
semblance of  a  hit.   But  it   would
probably be a good thing if the Heavers would occasionally receive such
treatment, for going to Victoria thc
week following, they belted tbe Capital City pitchers at such a rate that
the bombardment could he beard in
Vancouver.
From the showing of lhe teams in
lhe League up to the present time
the race this year will simmer down
to one between Seattle, Spokane and
Vancouver. These clubs look to have
the edge on Portland, Taeoma and
Victoria, and it will bc surprising if
one of the first three mentioned
teams does not finish at the head of
the race, Of course it is a long distance to the end of the season, and
many things may happen, but one
thing the Vancouver fans is assured
of is that thc Beavers will bc right
there when it comes down to championship possibilities.
* *    ��
Both Vancouver and N'ew Westminster have started practising for
the near approaching opening of the
lacrosse season, the first game being
in the Royal'City on May 24. There
appears to bc some doubt after all
whether Victoria will be able to put
a team cn the field this season.
* *   >
The New Westminster pro. lacrosse team has been drilling bard for
the past two or three weeks. "Dad"
'xurnbull takes an occasional trip to
Queen's Park and is coaching both
amateurs and professionals. Thc
Royals will be in full strength for
their tirst game on May 24.
�����   *   *
It is rumored that Joe Lally intends bringing an N. L. U. team west
to play for the Mann Cup this year.
His Cornwall bunch of last year
would be able to provide good opposition for the senior amateurs out
this way.
* *      �����
Bobby Pringle, of the Irish-Cana-
diens is the first lacrosse player sold
under the recent agreement entered
into between Con Jones and the Eastern lacrosse  magnates.
Con Jones has been sweet, on
Pringle's work for a long time and
being in need of a good man in the
field entered into negotiations wilh
George Kennedy for his release by
purchase. Con made an offer which
met with Kennedy's approval and
Pringle will bc out here in the Vancouver  uniform   this  spring.
Pringle had a confab with the Vancouver magnate when Jones was in
the East, during which terms were
practically arranged. Pringle will
get leave of absence, and return to
Ottawa in tbe fall. Hc is one of the
greatest defence players in the game,
and though be has been playing for
eight  or  nine   years he was   at   his
very best last itason.   Jones eodeav-l
oriel   t"   land    Pringle   several   times

That a big entry is assured for the

Fred Chinn, one of the greatest
cyclists who ever faced a starter, and
whose name was on the lips of every
English sportsman of a decade or
more ago, arrived in Vancouver recently, and expects to make bis future home on the Coast.
Chinn was born in Birmingham,
and much of bis success came to him
on old country cinder paths, but his
effeirts were not confined entirely to
the land of his nativity. Racers in
nearly every European country fell
victims tei his speed and stamina, and
there is scarcely a track in Europe
upon which he has not achieved some
international record. Numerous British championships fell to Chinn during lhe course of his career, but his
greatest achievement was the winning nf the world's championship at
the mile at the Velodrome, Long-
champs, Brussels, in 1896, his second
year on the professional path. He
was the first man to ride the half
mile  within  the  minute.

That     potent     attraction     "Oliver '

where the company are giving a splen-

famous   story.     The   entire  company'
ehe   well  and   the  whole  presentation
is   equal   to   the  best  efforts   of  this I
company.     The   houses   are   packed
nightly.
Xext week will be presented one'
of the best racing dramas ever pro- ���
' duced. For the first time in Vancouver the big London Adclphi Theatre
drama "Ruled Off the Turf" will bei
, the offering. The atmosphere is of
field and paddock. The plot revolves
. .'ire.iniil the fortunes of Stephen Her-
r itk. an English gentleman whose
mare Daisy is entered for the Grand
National Stakes at Aintree, and is
the favorite in the betting. Derrick
is in financial difficulties, and is depending on the mare winning to extricate him from ruin. Hc has mortgaged all he possesses to a wily
ney lender, Sim sylvestre. This
man demands his mortgage money
from Herrick in the fiist act, and
ilu' latter cannol pay him. The u mey
lender then enters into a secret agreement with Richard Fielding, an unscrupulous racing sport, to lay heavy
odds against the mare, obtain an at-
iiiiiit for debt, ami seize the
heerse on the eve of the race, thus
"scratching" her. How they are foil-
eel furnish some of the most novel
ami unexpected climaxes ever written into drama. A love interest is interspersed and there is an exception-
la 1 amount of comedy which will be
furnished by Tilly Armstrong and
Allyn Lewis. The former will sing
of lur best songs, The scenery will

life and all the company will have

1 going along at a last clip and this
fact has played an Important pan in
iihe' victories of tin' Vancouver club.
Hub Brown ii strong in twirlers this
year, in  faei much stronger than in
many years pasl though he had a
greal trio oi ye.iingste-rs la-t season.
However, where the bulk of lhe work
fell em their shoulders last summer,
this year lhe club is equipped with at
least six pitchers who are capable 'el
taking their places ill lhe box twice
each week. This gives the club a tremendous advantage' over a year ago
and will have a greater effect on their
standing than a casual glance would
Indicate. Strong pitching staffs arc
to a great extent the difference between top and cellar championships.
The fact must not be hist track of
either that lhe Beavers have been
hilling (lie liorsebiilc at a fiendish
rate. They had a bad slip in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago when
Hynes, a former Canadian League
slabsler, let them down without the
semblance of a hit. Hut it would
probably be a good thing if the Heavers would occasionally receive such
treatment, for going to Victoria the
week following, they belted the Capital City pitchers at such a rate that
lhe bombardment could be heard in
Vancouver.
From thc showing of the teams in
the League up to the present time
thc race this year will simmer down
to one betw.een Seattle, Spokane and
Vancouver. These clubs look to have
the edge on Portland, Taeoma and
Victoria, and it will be surprising if
one of the first three mentioned
teams does not finish at the head of
the race Of course it is a long distance to the end of the season, and
many things may happen, but one
thing the Vancouver fans is assured
of is that the Heavers will bc right
there when it comes down to championship possibilities.

That a big entry is assured for the

"HOME, THE SPOT ON EARTH SUPREMELY BLEST, A DEARER, SWEETER SPOT THAN ALL THE REST."
Ontario Heights Homes and Home-
sites are the Cheapest and Best
Ontario Heights
The View
The view obtained from Ontario
Heights is unique even in British
Columbia. From any point on the
properly one can sec the mountains
of North Vancouver lo the North, thc
Gulf of Georgia and Vancouver Island to the West and mountains and
valleys to thc East. But the grandest
view of all is South���both arms of
the mighty Fraser River, Lulu Island
and the famous Olympic -Mountain
Range in the state of Washington,
including majestic Mount Baker, in
tlie distance. Thc islands and mountains anel the River and Gulf with
their varied marine panorama, combine lo make this view one to bc remembered ��� magnificent, inspiring.
undoubtedly one of the finest on the
Pacific Coast.
The Drainage
Being high and dry, close to Little
Mountain I'ark, which is the highest
point in Greater Vancouver, and
higher than surrounding property,
Ontario Heights has a naturally perfect drainage system. This is in itself an inestimable advantage.
South Vancouver in the Direct Line
of Fastest Growth
That part eef Greater Vancouver
where the greatest growth of all is
taking place is South Vancouver, immediately south of lhe city proper,
and between it and the Fraser River.
Not many years ago Ninth Avenue
(Broadway) marked the southern
boundary of the active portion of the
city. Farmers held sway on the land
where the cemetery is now located
as late as 1904, and a few pioneers
had gone beyond the city boundary
(Sixteenth Avenue) because taxes
were low and land was cheap. Today
there is at the corner of Broadway
and Main Street a skyscraper as tall
as any on Granville Street, one of
Vancouver's two foremost business
streets, with the exception of the Vancouver Bleick and Rogers Building,
both completed this year. From I'nr-
rard Inlet, the northern boundary of
the city, to the North Arm of the
Fraser, the southern boundary of
Se.uth Vancouver, is only five e,r six
miles, exceptionally small limits for
a metropolitan city like Greater Vancouver. It is only a matter eel time,
moreover, till South Vancouver and
Vancouver will join, the ratepayers
of the former having already voted
ten to one in favor of annexation.
Four years ago thc population of
Soulh Vancouver was estimated at
about 4,000, while today it is at least
3S,000,'*and growing fast. South Vancouver may truly bc regarded as by
far the fastest growing part of the
fastest growing great city in the
world.
