Property owners e.n the Ninth Arm

Vancouver council granting forthwith
to the North Fraser Harbor Board
the sum required by that body for the
purpose of preparing preliminary plans
feir  the development  of  the  harbor.
So far the Municipal council has
taken me action in the matter and
the rumor is about to the effect that
as Point Grey ami Richmond have
been the two municipalities who have
shown any aggressiveness in assisting the Commission, that the Commission will prepare plans only for
that portion of the river from the
Point Grey���South Vancouver boundary.
Mr. 11. 11. A. Vogel, secretary to
the Xorth . raser Harbor Commission.
stated Thursday that the council of
South Vancouver had telephoned him
tee appear before the body with all
the necessary plans In  hand.
Secretary Vogel stated that as he
had nee plans drawn up, it would be
impossible for him to meet with the
request of the South Vancouver officials. To secure these plans required a great expenditure ol money and
the Commission, having no revenue.
had applied to the various councils
interested tei advance sufficient money
to secure a full set of -Mans necessary
to submit tn the Department at Ottawa.
In discussing the matter with Ihe
"Chinook." Mr. Vogel stated that the
Commission was not inclined to "run
|alter" the council of South Vancouver. Tlle project, once undertaken,
'would mean the expenditure eventually of ten millions of dollars on the
I North Arm of the Fraser. The work
I was of prime importance tee Semth
Vancouver. Mr. Robert Abernethy.
j chairman of the commission, was at
! present in Ottawa and meeting with
! good results in the pour parlers with

It   is   stated   that   Chairman   Alier-
nethy's absence in  Ottawa has something   to   do  with   making  a   bid   on
!'--'   ������    ' the North Arm for the big
! Pacific grain elevator which the Government  will  build  shortly.
Mr. A'bernethy's absence during the

| minster people as  the  following despatch   will   indicate :
Xew   Westminster.     March     25.���

Liberals and Radicals to
Club Together at Victoria Road
Meeting Monday Night to Form Association to Fight Provincial
Government Policy���Meeting Place, Thirty-fifth Ave. and
Victoria Road
South Vancouver Liberals will hold
;i clan gathering on Monday night,
March 30. at the hall at the corner of
Thirty-fifth Avenue and Victoria
In the Victoria Road District, no
Liberal association has as yet been
formed, and the residents of the community inclined towards Radicalism
and Liberalism are intent upon establishing on Victoria Road a good,
strong Liberal unit.
Representatives will attend the
meeting from Collingwood, Cedar
Cottage, South Hill and Main Street
Liberal Associations.
Working   men,   it  is  stated,   have
been invited to attend, particularly
those working men in the Victoria
Road District, who are at present out
of work.
Speakers will be present at the
meeting from the various Liberal associations in South Vancouver who
will deal with the problem of the unemployed and will endeavor to show
that conditions as they are today in
South Vancouver find their origin in
the halls of government at Victoria
where legislation is invariably for the
protection of the big interests as
against the man on the thirty-three
foot lot, or the wage earners generally  throughout the province.
Events this week at the Municipal
Hall continue to create a great deal
of interest and have been marked by
a tendency on the part of the whole
council to conciliate on matters coming forward and co-operate for the
general good of the municipality.
Money Situation Improves
Encouraging reports frejm the
money markets of the world have
created an optimism among the councillors of a noteworthy character.
One table to the effect that on the
London market a premium of two
and seven eighths was offered on the
new South Vancouver loan, while
Winnipeg dropped two points, greatly pleased the members of the council, particularly the minister of finance.
Councillor Gold declared that on
the $1,060,000 worth of bonds to be
sold, "We'll get 90 net and we'll maybe sell next month. Then we'll be thc
masters of the situation, Sejuth Vance niccr's credit will be A 1. and the
municipality will be the dictator."
It is further stated that, the Lon-
lon agents have offered South Vancouver a renewal of treasury notes
at intir and a quarter with prospects
of lour per cent. Considering the
price now being paid is seven per
cent., il may be taken lor granted
tha conditions are on the mend anil
that the municipality is gathering
prestige  in   the  financial  centres.
Water Department Loses $40,000
That the South Vancouver Water
Works Department had been run at
a loss of $40,000 during 191.1 was the
astounding statement given the council by Clerk Springford. While the
returns from this department were
encouraging, yet, when the items of
sinking fund and interest were considered, Clerk Springford stated that
the loss was very great.
This information created a stir
among the councillors and ratepayers
in the chamber. The opportunity of
the moment was not hist sight of by
Councillor Gold, who immediately
asked if the late Superintendent, Mr.
Mullett, had not advertised the fact
that the department had been working at a profit for some time past. He
stated that in the past election Reeve
Kerr had proclaimed the South Vancouver water works as a marvel of
efficiency.    The councillor from Ward
Five declared  that  the  information
was sufficient grounds for a thorough
investigation of the department, made
a motion te, that effect, and doubtless
the investigation will materialize in
due time.
Councillor  Gold  Makes  Point
The note of compromise was sounded when the question of the big tank
at Central Park came before the council in committee Wednesday. The
majority of thc council had been in
favor oi allowing the B. C. Equipment Ceempany to proceed with the
work as per the contract made with
the council of 1913. Of course there
was opposition from Councillors
Thomas, Geild and Twiddy. The
minority clung fast to the stand taken
in the early part of the month that
the contractors were not proceeding
according to specifications. Councillors Winram, Stevens, Rowlings, Rutledge and Reeve Dickie were prepared to make any reasonable concessions  to avoid a law-suit.
Tlie result of repeated conferences
was that the minority will have its
way. The contracting company agreed
to put one-inch hy four-inch steel
bands in the concrete foundations; to
place around the present  foundation.

quality concrete; and to jack up the
standpipc. scrape the bottom and apply two coats of bilumastic paint, the
council to inspect the work before
thc  pipe  was lowered.
In the early discussion of the Central Park tank question, Councillors
Winram and Gold went to the mat
several limes. Councillor Gold would
have lhe contractors stay absolutely to the line and carry the work 'iut
as per specifications. Councillor Winram had an eminent firm of engineers
inspect the tank and pronounce it absolutely safe, so hc claimed. Reeve
Dickie reminded the councillors that
to.i much use of the personal pronoun was not good. Councillor Gold
declared that if the work was allowed lo continue that the tank would
be a menace to life and property in
the district. He did not favor the
council accepting any rebate freun
the company. He wanted to sec thc
work done properly.
Gas Franchise Up
On Wednesday thc subject of a gas
service freim the city came before the
councillors, Councillor Winram and
Gold here found themselves in agreement. The residents on Main Street

Why Not Women Magistrates
For Greater Vancouver
Calgary is Progressive, also Denver and Chicago, and they Have
Broad-minded Women Jurists to Deal with Sinning and
Sinned-against Girls
"The 'Chinook' is the first paper in
Greater Vancouver to voluntarily
take up tbe cudgels for Woman Suffrage," said a well known lady the
other night, "and we women who are
working for tne great cause appreciate your brpadmindedness in this
Very little gratitude is usually forthcoming to the newspaper which
strikes out boldly for the right. But
when the ladies get the ballot, it will
undoubtedly be different.
Canada has one woman jurist and
the ladies of Greater Vancouver who
are fighting feir the rights of women
would like to see representatives of
their sex presiding over some of the
Vancouver  courts
Calgary is the first city in Canada
to have a woman judge to try cases
in the juvenile court. Only when thc
offender is a girl between the' age
of fourteen and eighteen years does
Calgary's lady judge take the bench.
Mrs. Jamieson, who has been appointed, has been a devoted worker in the
interests of women and children for
many years, and during her long experience she was impressed with the
advantage of having a woman to give
justice to sinning and sinned against
girls. The opening of the appointment was  due to the efforts of Mr.
R. B, Chadwick, Superintendent of
Dependent Children  for Alberta.
If this departure proves successful
in Calgary, it is to be supposed that
other  cities  will  follow  suit.
Why wait for results? To any fair-
minded person it would seem only
natural that, a woman, perhaps a
mother, could deal more satisfactorily
with unfortunate girls than the average man.
The State of Colorada was the first
to appoint women justices in the juvenile court, the policy going into
force some six years ago. Chicago
recently appointed a woman to the
bench in the South Side Juvenile
Courth and in both cases the best results have been obtained.
Mrs. Jamieson will more than fill
her nosition of trust as she is familiar
with tbe work before her.
She has been a resident of Calgary
for many years, her husband having
been mayor of the city for several
It is the ambition of the women of
Vancouver to stir the public to a pitch
where the necessity will be brought
home to the law-makers of appointing
to the bench locally, women magistrates to deal wisely with those many
cases to which they assuredly are best
South Vancouver Men Shut Out
of City Work
If a great high wall were built between the City of Vancouver
and the Municipalities of South Vancouver and Burnaby. within a
week fifty per cent, of the retail businesses in the City of Vancouver
would be severely crippled and within a month half of the big departmental stores would have to close their doors.
On the other hand, within a week, there would be a great many
families in South Vancouver and Burnaby who would find themselves
in want.
The interests of the City of Vancouver and the Municipalities adjoining are absolutely identical. The Municipalities depend upon the
City and the City depends upon the Municipalities to a very great
A merging of the Municipalities with the City, all fair minded
men agree, will be the solution of a great many of the problems now
being faced throughout Greater Vancouver.
There are public men in Vancouver, however, small enough and
narrow enough to try to break down even the friendly relations which
now exist between the various civic units by discriminating against
workmen in the employ of the City who live in suburban districts
outside the exact municipal boundaries of the City.
Pleas were made to the Vancouver board of works on Tuesday
afternoon by Mr. John Sully, that opportunities of employment under
the city should be given to residents of South Vancouver, but the best
that could be promised him was that if the engineering staff was in
need of more men, the men living in the municipality should be remembered.
Mr. Sully's argument was that many of these men had been residents of Vancouver for many years, but, wishing to buy their own
homes, found they could not handle anything in the city, so they had
to go to South Vancouver. All the money they made was spent in
the city just as before for groceries and other commodities, the only
difference being that they went to the municipality to sleep. Many
of them had been laid off, and they were anxious to have a chance to
work again.
Alderman Rogers made the astonishing statement that South
Vancouver had laid down the dictum that no outsiders should be
given work in that municipality, and that Vancouver should retaliate.
"Return good for evil," was Alderman Crowe's comment.
Mr Sully pointed out that most of these men were experienced,
and it had been stated that the department was in need of such workers.
In view of the resolution passed by the council on Monday night,
Alderman Cottr-11 held that the board could not do anything in the
Thus the South Vancouver men will have to content themselves
with hoping for the best.
It might be pointed out that with a few exceptions all the employees of the South Vancouver School Board���live within the City
of Vancouver and come to the Municipality every morning.
A great number of the employees at the Municipal Hall, South
Vancouver, live in the City of Vancouver.
City firms supply the South Vancouver School Board with practically everything that body purchases during the year, the exceptions
being a certain amount of job printing and equipment which can be
made right in South Vancouver.
At the Municipal Hall all the departments purchase supplies from
City firms. This business amounts to hundreds of thousands every
The same applies to Burnaby and Point Grey.
In opening up a breach between the City and the Municipalities
round about, the members of the City Council are not following a
very statesmanlike policy. It may be a good vote-building plan, but
it's, awfully small, provincial, narrow. It is to be trusted that the
municipalities even at the sacrifice of a few local business houses and
a few of the workmen's jobs will not in turn do anything so picayune
as to retaliate.
South Hill Liberals Establish
Club Rooms on Fraser Street
Aggressive Organization Gathering Membership and Will
Inaugurate Club with a Big Concert
In the South Hill District, the Liberal movement is proving popular,
the South Hill Liberal Association
has taken club rooms at 682 Fraser
Street, and with the numbers and
the enthusiasm, thc executive believe
that the organization will do good
work between now and the next election.
It was boasted at one time that
"there was not a Grit on Fraser
Street." Developments are proving
that while the great majority of the
people on Fraser Street and in the
South Hill district may not have
strong Grit leanings, the great majority of them are very sure in their
own  minds  as regards  the policy  of
the Provincial Government, and the
common desire seems to be to have
the heel set firmly on tbe neck of the
notorious outfit in the saddle at present in the City of Victoria.
On Friday, April 3, a grand opening of thc association rooms will be
held. The event will take the form
of a concert and social and members
of the executive declare that the very
best talent in Greater Vancouver-
Grit, Tory and Socialist���will be engaged  for   the   evening.
During the evening the subject of
politics will he lost sight of to a great
extent and the concert will be thrown
open to a'l creeds, all classes, factions
and parties.

North Arm of Fraser River
The Big Petition and the  Delegation the Awakening of Interest in
the North Arm of the Fraser River���Work of Years of Smaller
Association is  the  Means  of Stimulating the Bigger Interest
The formation of the boards of
trade of South Vancouver, Hurnaby
Richmond and Point Grey were all
completed about the same time early
in the year 1910. Almost the first
business to come before these newly-
formed boards of trade was the development of the North Arm.
Just at first there was considerable
delay in action as tbe details of organization took quite some time, and
then followed the getting acquainted
period, which is so necessary to a
movement such as this was, between
the various boards of trade.
From time to time durini" the summer, however, quite a lot of missionary work, towards dredging the North
Arm of the Fraser, was done in priming the ratepayers and thc councils of
the different municipalities, and when
fall came and with it more interest in
public affairs, the su"-estion of the
boards to their respective councils
wcre received with almost unanimous
The appointment of a committee of
thc Eburne ratepayers with a view
to raising a sum of money with which
to have a survey made and which was
supplemented by the visit of tlie Minister of Public Works had its effect,
for shortly afterwards a committee of
the Richmond antl Point Grey board
of trade was appointed to circulate a
petition among those actively interested in the industries, principally milling at that time, for presentation to
the Dominion government. s pet
ition was received with the uanani-
mous support, not only of those who
were interested  from a money stand-
met cabinet at 11 a.m. Dr. Pugsley
agreed to deepen the N'orth Arm to
depth of 15 feet, and expected thc
dredge would be in operation by the
time  the  delegates   returned  home."
Following the return from Ottawa
of the delegates, re dredging, a joint
committee composed of the various
waterways committeees of the boards
of trade and representatives from
the councils was formed. Besides
this, at the instigation of Reeve
Churchill, who was president of thc
local board eef trade that year, the
members of the Dominion House
were taken over the river by the
Richmond and Point Grey board, as
well as being interviewed together
by the joint committee. Reeve Churchill claims that the formation of thc
present Harbor Beiard was the direct
result of the latter meeting.
As a result of actively interesting
Messrs. J. D. Taylor, M.P., and H. H.
Stevens, M.P., and securing their personal assurance lhat they would do
everything they could to advance the
dredging of the North Arm of tbe
Fraser River, an Act of Parliament
was passed in May, 1913, defining the
section as a harbor and arranging for
tlle appointment of harbor commissioners.
Almost every person is familiar with
the appointment, as the members,

point but, from all the public bodies in
the vicinity. The public also took
the question of dredging to heart and
for the first time since the question
had first been mooted it was received in a serious manner.
The period of the netition might
be called the awakening. A petition
signed by the industries along the
North Arm of the Fraser River from
the mouth to the City of New Westminster, and by the incorporated
bodies along the territory with a total
interested capital of $19,000,000, that
is for industries, was finally secured
and presented to the Richmond and
Point Grey Board of Trade at their
meeting on  November   15th,  1910.
Thc petition was practically started through thc suggestions of the
Hon. Dr. Pugsley. who had made the
statement that, "if the people eef the
Fraser Valley and Vancouver knew
thc possibilities of the North Arm of
the Fraaer river Ottawa would be besieged with petitions and delegations
until the work would have to be done.''
Mmost every person will remember the monster delegation that went
to Ottawa that fall. It composed representatives from every municipality along the North Arm, and also lhe
City of New Westminster. At the
same time, stimulated no doubt by
the actions of those interested in. the
North Arm, those interested in the
main river at New Westminster duplicated the efforts of the North Arm
people and prepared for presentation
a similar petition dealing with that

members were Messrs. W. H. Higgins, J. G. Hutchinson and Capt. W.

as a  delegate  from  this  board.

must be remembered that a great deal
of the credit for having reached the
present stage in the accomplishing
of what has seemed to bc a dream of
the highest magnitude, is due to thc
old-timers at Eburne, who in spite of
the scoffing at what was termed a
visionary harbor, they, by their persistence, carried the project to such
a point that the people and interests
of thc entire Burrard peninsula,
which will some day be Greater Vancouver, wcre forced to take the question up as a body.
The actual results obtained were,
as we have previously stated, the results of the uananimous action of this
body of interests and is a lesson in
what can be done by concerted and
well-directed  action.
There was indeed some pretty plain
speaking at the Ratepayers' meeting
in Ward One. The worm has turned, and those who were regarded as
"little tin gods on wheels" are now
spoken of as "very small pertators."
Councillor Rutledge is universally
spoken of "as a man who improves
upon acquaintance"���hc certainly, has
the courage of his convictions and
this is bow he speaks of his vivacious
colleague : "That man," Councillor
Rutledge remarked, "has absolutely
no regard for the workingman. If
he resigns, as I am given to understand he is going to do, the councillors ought to gel out and work with
all their might lo defeat him. I will
do it."
Councillor Rutlcdge's remarks wcre
greeted with great enthusiasm and
expletives were numerous. A resolution was passed unanimously endorsing the stand Councillors Rutledge, Winram, Rowlings and Stevens had taken in regard to Main Street
paving contract.
School Trustee Morris spoke in
favor of the proposed school bylaws,
which are being vigorously opposed
in  thc ward.
Thc opposition chiefly centres
around the proposed purchase of a
High School -,ite on Kinross Street
at a cost of $J3,500. But explanation!
will   remove  this  opposition.
Some excitement was caused when
Trustee Morris stated that the trustees had been offered another site
and that he, personally, had been offered a rake-off if he would help to
get it through.
Asked if that particular site was not
to cost $1500 less Trustee Morris said
it was offered at $12,000; but the site
was much smaller than the proposed

Engineering a War Scare in Canada
Dr. Ryerson says that Canada will
certainly be in a war within thc next
generation���perhaps a war with the
United States, perhaps a "recurrence
of the trouble such as we had in the
Colonel Ryerson's idea is that we
should have a military organization
capable of dealing with such an emergency. We do not undertake to discuss the requirements of defence with
a military expert. What we all ought
to do is to make the conditions such
that there will bc no war with the
United States and no rebellion in the
Canadian  West.
War between Canada and the United States would be not merely inhuman, not merely inexpedient. It
would be idiotic. It could not occur
without moral and intellectual idiocy
in Canada or in the United States, or
in both countries. It would injure
both countries. It would check scientific progress, moral and social scientific progress, moral and social reform. It would be the one thing
which the enemies of the British Empire would desire. It would be the
one thing for which the enemies of
freedom and democracy would pray
to  their  heathen  gods.
So, if Colonel Ryerson is right, and
there is danger of war with the United States, every good citizen of Canada  and  of thc  British   Empire,  every
friend eif freedom and democracy,
every friend of humanity and civilization, should now consecrate his life
tee averting tlit- awful calamity which
Colonel Ryerson predicts. And when
we say calamity, we do not mean the
strife and danger which may come
te, Canada. Strife and danger we must
be prepared to face. The awful calamity will be the conflict, not between
good and evil, but between two powers which, if united, can achieve so-
much for good, can so advance the
banners of civilization and freedom,
democracy and humanity.
Dr. Ryerson's speech was delivered at the Academy of Medicine. It
is quite right and creditable that our
physicians and surgeons should hold:
themselves ready to bind up thc
wounds of those who may need care.
But there is also such a thing as preventive medicine. We are surprised!
that no member of the academy arose
after Dr. Ryerson and said : "If
these dangers are real���if Canada is
drifting into a civil war, and into a
war with the United States, which
will be almost a civil war���we, as-
students eif preventive medicine and
hygiene, ought to try to prevent these
calamities from coming to pass���

New Company Employs Sixty
South Vancouver Men in Factory
Well-known  Lumber   Firm  Takes Over Large Mill at Foot of Ontario Street on North Fraser Harbor
South   Vancouver   is  awakening 1
On the banks of North Fraser Harbor, at the foot of Ontario Street, a
new industry, financed with new
money, conducted by new men, has
thrown  open  its doors.
Sixty men were employed this week
at the Canadian Cedar Lumber Company���sixty  South Vancouver men.
"We have selected the North Arm
for a location," stated Mr. P. M.
Hamilton, manager of the new ceempany, "only after ?. careful survey of
thc Lower Mainland. We believe
that for industrial sites, frontage on
(he Niertb Arm of the Fraser cannot
bc beaten any place on the coast."
The mill premises was formerly occupied by Mr. Harry Day, the South
Vancouver pioneer lumberman. Mr.
Day upon retiring from business,
sold to the Sunsei Lumber Company,
and the plant, after lying idle for
sietne months has now passed into
the hands of thc Canadian Cedar
Lumber Company, a concern in
which arc interested young progressive business men who promise to
make the property very valuable.
In the active conduct of the mill,
Mr. Hamilton has with him Mr. F.
Willis, an experienced mill manager
who was formerly with the Hastings
Shingle Manufacturing Company
Mr. Hamilton, was formerly identified with the Canadian Cedar Lumber
Company mills at Cedar Cove���the
Cedar   Cove   premises   having     been
vacated to make way for the building
of the big Government Dock which
will occupy the land upon which the
mill was located.
The new concern declare that the
North Arm offers an immensely better location for a lumber Industry
than  defes   Burrard  Inlet.
The Canadian Cedar Lumber Company, Semth Vancouver, will manufacture bevel siding, boat lumber,
high grade cedar lumber and lath.
The managers of the company declared that if the people of Soutli
Vancouver are as loyal to local industries as they are progressive in other
regards, there should bc no question
as to the success of any such manufactory project launched in the district.
It is understood that the Municipal
Council will make it a firm rule to
patronize, in the purchasing of supplies feir the Municipal Hall, locaf
factories as far as it is at all possible.
Thc local man is to be given preference in all contracts, and this, it i^
affirmed will go a great way towards-
putting South Vancouver in the fore
among  western   municipalities.
The Canadian Cedar Lumber Company starts off with a payroll of
$4.0(J0 a month, which in itself is an
item which should bring optimism to-
the hearts of those who are really
interested in the progress of SoutI��

BEFORE the Municipal Council come delegations of big, deep-chested men in rags,
workmen out of employment. Some of them have earned $9.00 in live weeks with
pick and shovel on the road's. Others have been Jess successful, and all who .come to
plead for a pittance are feeling the pinch of poverty.
This in British Columbia!
Yes, right here on the coast. Here, where the Lord has given us all that the heart
or the body should desire, we have poverty. Big, strong Canadian men beg for a day's
work to earn money to buy food for the home. They cannot get this work at the usual
sources, so they urge the municipalities to tax all the people to raise money to make an
artificial demand for labor. And the municipalities have to do it to stave the wolf from
many a cottage door.
"Why don't these fellows get out?" some one asks. "Why don't they go to work
on the railroads or in the lumber camps?"
In the first place the most of them own interests in little patches of property being
paid for on the instalment plan. Until recently they have been keeping their payments
Up. Let them default and they will lose their little properties���the speculator has seen
to that. They have their homes established on these 33-foot lots. The children attend
the public schools and the local churches and Sunday Schools.
It is not easy to pull up stakes, sacrifice all, and get out. It is not easy to foresee
whether in British Columbia today.these men can better their conditions.
To the railroads? Yes, and to conditions which, and we have it from those who
gave evidence before the Provincial. Labor Commission, are worse than ever existed
in the ante-bellum days among the negroes of the South. There,.the workingmen, the
pick and shovel men, will have to compete with the European bohunk. He will have to
take his chances, working on contract, for sub-contractors of the mighty railroad
contractors who see to it that the railways under construction in B. C. today are being
"built on the commissary." Every man doing rough work on the grade is forced to live
in the contractors' camps, under, usually, wretched conditions, and is forced to buy his
grub, tobacco, clothes, and supplies from the contractors' commissary���and that at extortionate prices. A big percentage of the waps on the railways at present being built
througii the B. C. mountains leave the work after two years of service owing money to
the contractors.
To the lumber camps? Yes, to compete with Mongolian labor and to take a chance
with the lumbering industry in B. C. today in bad shape.
Then drive them to land, you say���to the great open spaces to grow their food.
There are millions of acres of these open spaces in B. C.���rich in soil. These broad
ranges of undeveloped farming lands rest, however, in the same hands lhat have the
strangle hold on the 33-foot lot, the hands of the land speculator.
Economic conditions in B. C. today have come to a pass where the situation cannot
longer be handled with kid gloves. It is a decade of unwise government in this country
which has landed the workmen of Greater Vancouver in the position in which we find
them today.
The problem.is not a local one, nor yet purely provincial. Its ramifications are
national in shape. To British Columbia and to South Vancouver the first demand for
a solution is being made.
It is a problem which is not likely to be solved by the Conservatives, who, in the
Province of B. C, did so much towards bringing these conditions about, nor by the Liberals, who in other quarters passively encouraged efforts which have lead up to this
crisis. The solution of the thing lies in the latent brains of those big, husky workmen who even this week pleaded with the Reeve of South Vancouver to give, for God's
sake, one day's work per week, that they might buy nourishment for their babes.

With this legislation British Columbia takes the

a Forest Service promises a final forest management

ENCEFORTH the Reeve of South Vancouver
will draw down a salary of $2,000 a year and
eacli councillor will receive for liis services $300 each
Reeve Dickie stated during liis election campaign
'that he believed the Reeve and Council should be paid
for their services. He made it clear that if he was
elected one of the first things he wotdd do would be
to have an indemnity bylaw introduced which would
make it possible for the members of the council to have
at least a nominal remuneration for their services.
At the council meeting, Monday, strange to say,
Reeve Dickie declared for a $1,000 salary. The councillors believed that the figure should be $2,000 and
voted accordingly. Reeve Dickie declared that he
would only take $1,000 of the sum.    He was rather
TRUSTEE WILLIAM MORRIS made the statement at a recent public meeting that in this year
of grace he had been offered a rake-off if he would
use his influence to have the South Vancouver School
Hoard purchase a certain piece of property to be used I ^7^ ^with'tS j^^^f*
for school site purposes. l<
Apparently there are still grafters in South Vancouver���grafters or would-be grafters. Trustee Morris should have gone further and named the men who
are alleged to have made an attempt to corrupt him.
There should be some law which would encourage a
man in the position occupied by Mr. Morris to show
up men who endeavor to corrupt public bodies.
PROFESSOR E. B. FERNOW, the prominent
authority on forestry, writing in the last issue
of the "Forestry Quarterly" on the Timber Royalty
Bill says that with its enactment the Province of British Columbia takes the lead in modern and efficient
timber land administration.
Professor Fernow said: "A very important and
very sane readjustment of royalties for timber licences
has been embodied in the Bill by the British Columbia
Minister of Lands. The Hon. William R. Ross, the
Minister of Lands, who was responsible for the establishment two years ago of an efficient Forest Service, has boldly taken hold of the situation and so.vcd
the problem of equitable dealing in a most it-teUil
It gives stability to the lumber business for forty
years without fear of disturbances, and, while we miss
provisions for improved forestry practice, at least the
���financial  side  of the  Government  interest  is better
Reeve Dickie, if he is as wise a man as his actions
since coming into office would lead one to believe,
would be well advised to accept the $2,000 salary. If
he succeeds this year in placing South Vancouver on
the right sort of a basis among the municipalities of
Canada, his services will be worth to the ratepayers
of South Vancouver twenty times $2,000.
In order to do his work well Reeve Dickie will require thc whole-hearted support of his council. The
peculiar feature is that the councillors should agree
to an indemnity of $300 a year. This is a sum which
will scarcely cover donations and those other little
expenses' which any mjm in public life is expected to
meet. In view of the Ifact that new indemnities were
being fixed, the average follower of municipal events
will wonder why the sums were not made more substantial.
So far this year the Reeve and Councillors have
been at the Municipal Hall daily and have been forced
to devote practically all their time to affairs of the
municipality. Until this year practically all the pay
a man in municipal life in South Vancouver received
was either in the way of applause or abuse, more often
If we are to evolve any manner of scientific civic
government it will be necessary to pay the men at the
head of affairs���and pay them handsomely. When
municipal officials are not paid in the regular way by
the people, other interests sometimes step in. When
private corporations begin to develop payrolls about
administrative buildings, look out!
LITTLE too much used is the word "slogan"���
but it is a useful word, and; a-good "slogan" is
a good thing. "Made in B: C." is a good "slogan"���
because'it gives expression to a good i'dea, alas! there
is more of the ideal than the real about it!
The writer remembers that some years ago when
Ihe English Conservative "Primrose League" was
at its zenith a "Primrose dame" was "holding forth"
at a big meeting in the City of London. "Support home
industries." she said. "Why pay money for foreign
goods when British workmen are starving?" Ah,
why ? And the "dame" who was speaking had on
American boots, Brussell's lace, Russian fur, a French
hat and a dress unniistakeably a creation by Worth of
Paris! A further analysis would no doubt have revealed attire which had put as little into the pockets
of those engaged in "home industries."
"Made in B. C.I" It is a good label, but go into
a big department store and see to how few of the goods
can such a label be properly affixed!
But the time will come when "made in South Vancouver" will properly describe many articles of daily
use and consumption. Yes! unless the people of this
great municipality are fools, fools with a big F���
South Vancouver���"Greater Vancouver" will turn out
in profusion, pretty nearly all that a man or woman
needs from the cradle to the grave���that is in the way
of industrial products.
Why do we hold this optimistic view? you ask.
Well! It is optimistic, we admit. We cannot���parodying an old song say, We've got the works, we've
got the men and got the money too. Xo! but we have
the space, we are getting the men���captains of industry and men of the rank and file are coming in daily.
"Financial stringency" (hateful phraze) will not last
for ever, we shall get the money���and remember, we
have got the power.   Yes! power!
Do you grasp what that means? The great characteristic of the age in which we live is the change
wrought by the application of scientific knowledge to
meeting the material needs of mankind.
The ancients were great in philosophy, in art. The
Orientals were clever in many ways, but they spun,
made pottery, ground wheat, sawed hoards, by hand
labor, and used water power for turning a praying
Watt and Stephenson taught us the value of power
���Franklin, Edison and other devotees of the goddess "electricity"���have gone further���have made
man almost omnipotent, have made this 20th Century
an era of industrial miracles.
Just think of it! Power unlimited (from waler or
steam), so easily withing our grasp, yet men are broken
by excessive labors and are poor because there are no
industries. Our municipality should be vocal with
the hum of wheels, and gladsome with the joy that
comes from fat payrolls, "But if you produce, where's
your market ?" The usual question! Solomon answered it. "The eyes of the fool are in the ends of
the earth." We are ever shedding blood to get distant "markets." There is no need to look for them
until everybody is clothed, everybody is fed antl every
mind educated at home.
But power. Just think! It seems only the other
day that tlie world was startled by electric power being carried from the falls of Neekar to Frankfort, a
distance" of 112 miles. That meant a new era for German industries. Germans use that power liberally.
i he housewife cooks with electricity, drives her sewing machine with it and the farmer as well as the ar-
tizan utilizes the potent agency which will some day
do the work of the'world. British Columbia is using
electric [tower. It is to our shame that we are not
using it enough. We are not distracted by wars and
rumors of wars. We have been���are at peace antl
could devote our energies to industrial enterprise, but
ave failed to do so.
Think what il will mean to the community if we
once realize that electricity has no longer made it necessary for industries to crowd together in one centre.
ook at London. Since "the age of electricity" came
in huge factories have moved out of crowded London
to Rugby, Bedford. Chelmsford; Aylesbury, to Letch-
worth and other "garden cities." Yes! smokeless
electric power allows manufacturers to be carried on
iii an arcadia!
In South Vancouver we have ample scope and verge
enough for many industries and they can be carried
on amid pleasant, sanitary, congenial surroundings
where the workmen can say "The labor we delight ih
physics pain." Electric power has robbed labor of
many of its stings.
Every industry needs power. It is needed for the
jewellers' drill, for the sewing machine of the tailor
or the bootmaker, it is needed by the printer as it is
by the forger of huge steel girders for "sky-scrapers."
When the time comes for South Yanfcouver to fully grasp the value of electric power, do not think that
only the manufacturer will benefit. Unless South
Vancouver is "duller than the fat weed,that rots on
Lethe's wharf" benefit will accrue to the humblest
worker���the smallest householder.
Look into the question! See how cheap electricity
can be made "in bulk"���how easily it can be transmitted, and how when it is the rule and not the exception for it to be used for heating, lighting, cooking
antl working, the comfort and health of the people will
. Apd what stands in the way of the use of this power
to increase. The health, wealth, comfort and happiness of the people ? What? Why many things! Inflated land values.   Greed of financiers and other cor
porations.   Lack of enterprise, lack of initiative, "lad.
of good government���but chiefly the ignorance ain
deadly apathy of the people themselves.
Wake up! Look with us into the possibilities e .
what eleectric power (one factor among many) can do
for South \ 'ancouver.
You will not denounce our forecast as "visionary.'
It may take time���it will mean patient work in tlu
face of difficulties, but the principles on which our
hopes are based are incontrovertible. Greater Van
couver will be a big place.and its magnitude will demand that its public services must be the best. Tin
size of Greater Vancouver, the population it will haw
will insure success, and it is only a question of time for
the possibilities of power as a factor in our well-being
lo be fullv demonstrated.

farce, that ran a year in New York
on its lirst production and was prone eunceil the most meritous achievement in years in the way of a laughter-provoking play. "Excuse Me" is

It is encouraging to note that in
the building of a permanent pavement
on Main Street practically all the
materials used will be "made in British Columbia" products. Coupled with
this the fact that the contractors
promise to employ all South Vancouver labor on the project and we have
the very best argument which could

Women and Clothes
My sympathies are with thc member of tlle Dominion House of Commons who said the other day, with
reference to the anti-cigarette bill,
that women had better reform their
own dress before they came to parliament seeking sumptuary laws for
the guidance of men. Of course, thc
women who were seeking the law
about cigarettes are not the women
who are running to extremes in dress,
and they have a right to seek legislation which will protect their boys,
but ihe fact remains that for several
years the fashions in women's clothing have been neither healthful nor
modest, to put it mildly, and yet there
has been no very determined effort
on the part of the saner women to
stem this tide. They have not gone
to extremes themselves but there has
been no attempt to legislate against
the manufacture, sale of wearing of
these silly and immodest clothes.
Missionaries have labored long to unbind the feet of Chinese women, but
no missionary appears to have arisen
to unhamper the limbs of Canadians,
Americans, English and French women from the hobble and slit skirt,
ur to protect their chests and their
modesty from the exposure of the
low-cut waist on the street. Sumptuary laws are always resented and
are the most difficult of all laws to
enforce. The point where individual
right ends and public right begins is,
and forever will be, a moot question.
However, consistency is a jewel, even
if it has been dubbed "The vice of
small minds," and until women exercise some sanity and control in thc
matter of their own dress, they cannot reasonably hope to be very successful in controlling men in the matter of cigarette smoking or any other
matter of self indulgence.���The Woman.���Winnipeg  "Town   Topics."

"There was no poltics in my ap-

tell you the politics of one of the men

"Naturally, not being acquainted in

the commission gave me lists of men

with the men. and made my selections

I named the Rev. D. Frank Garland,

made a number of visits to American

sort of work which our Director of

"As Director eif Law, otic of the
drafters of the Dayton Charter was

who sacrificed his business interests
in  order to accept  the place.
"As Director of Finance, I named
a young man who had been connected with several business institutions
in Dayton, and who was a member
cf a firm of public accountants.
"When it came to choosing a Director of Service, the commission threw
up its hands, and had no suggestion
t'i make. So I chose a man from
Cincinnati, who had been my assistant in the Engineering Department
"No Director of Safety has been appointed, and, as provided by the charter, in the absence of a director, the
work of lhat department is being looked after by the city manager.
'So we have trained men in each

that we have put business principles

The three requisites for tenure of office in Dayton today are efficiency,
economy  and   loyalty.

asking that the Contagious Siseases
of Animals Act be amended so that
the Dominion veterinary inspectors
could inspect all live and dead poultry entering thc Province. Considerable live poultry are being imported,
ostensibly for thc purpose of killing
for the markets, but are, however, being sold to settlers at reduced prices.
In some consignments the majority
of the fowls have been found to be
suffering from one or the other of
thc contagious diseases attacking
poultry. These fowls have been sold
broadcast throughout the Province,
the result being that in sonic districts
which have hcrtofore been healthy,
poultry breeders have had these diseases  attack   their  flocks.
Word has just been received by the
secretary of the Provincial Poultry
Association, stating that Mr. Jl 11.

Dear Doctor,���"Banish the Bar." re

dull, but if banish the bar only means
the doing away of bar and consuming
it on the premises, same. I suppose

matter is again going tei be so mi*cd
Mj   Dear R.,���Thanks For your lu-
I ter. When a man like y>ii tails to
understand a letter such as I wrote
to the "Tribune," I certainly must be
somewhat misty In my ststemenjts.
"Banish the Pear," let nn- say. stands
for the willing out of all sale of liqitor
except such as i- sold in shops under
whai is called in the Liqubr Act
"wholesale lic.ense." In ..ther words,
the -a'n- of liquor that is to bi drunk
immediately, whether -iiting or standing, or lying down, on the premises
Where ii is -"i'i is absolutely forbidden. Shop licenses only remain Untouched.
I have sent yum- letter to the "Tribune." because it is more than likely
that a great many people as well as
yourself misunderstood my reply to
Mr.  Coulthart.
1 notice what yuu say in regard to
the attitude of the government in Saskatchewan. This is only an additional
proof thai one party is as likely to
fall under the influence of the liquor
people as another. With you apparently it is the Liberal party that is
in alliance with the traffic; with us
it is the Conservative, This clearly
demonstrates tin- wisdom of the policy pursued by the Social Service
Council "f Manitoba in demanding
from any party whieh. receives its
support a break with liquor interests
so clean, so absolute, that any future
lliance will become impossible. It
is in.t a question of the good faith of
the individual leaders. It is a qucs-
tion uf the resisting power of a government ur a parti against the subtle, unscrupulous and. well night oni-
nipotent influence eif the liquor interests.���Yours,

Editor   "Chinook" :
Re your leader in last week's issue
under the heading. "Vaulting Ambition," in which the Rev. J. C. Madill is
shown in thc limelight as regards the
expression of an idea having been
given at Cedar Cottage that the Reverend Gentleman has "been sent for"
to be made a Senator.
You will recall that last fall a challenge was given in one of the meetings of the Cedar Cottage Conservative Association to investigate as to
whether the Rev. Madill made a statement at Ottawa knowing it to be
false in ou'er to get the then postmaster ': Cedar Cottage postoffice
The very fact that Madill's friends
came to his rescue and were successful in preventing an investigation
spoke for itself. If Madill was innocent should he not have made short
work of proving it, as he is known
to have been very active circulating
"some"  things.
Is the Conservative Party getting
so absolutely rotten as to even think
of giving any man who tried to let
any member of it in wrong (in order

were unalterably opposed to giving
the Vancouver Gas Company any
concessions whatsoever in South Vancouver at this time. Councillor Gold
believed that the time was not far
distant when annexation would be
brought about. With annexation, the
Vancouver Gas Company would enjoy an extension of their system with
the extension of the boundaries of thc
City of Vancouver, and consequently
with annexation, the company would
get the South Vancouver privilege

talked over the question, and will likely decide thc matter at next meeting.

Main Street Pavin*
Thc week passes without any start
having been made on the Main Street
paving. The majority of tlle council
having declared for the speedy carrying out of the contract with lhe Dominion Creosoting Company, all that
is left is to get the money with which
to finance the work. There is where
the  rub seems  to be.
Reports by both the majority and
the minority in the council on interview with the Bank of Commerce officials regarding the special loan, were
made Thursday. Reeve Dickie stated
the bank had been asked for approximately $17.1,000. At the request of the
bank manager, all documents and reports in the case, including the Wood-
worth legal opinion, were furnished
him. Hc agreed to put the matter up
to the superintendent, and if the superintendent did not act on it, it would
go to the head office. A reply in thc
last event would require some ten
or twelve days.
Councillor Gold reported for the
minorit- that he had visited certain
of the bank officials, and had received a reply that the matter would be
referred to the bank's solicitors for
Councillor Gold's "last little joker,"
and one which, he intimates, will give
him victory over the "solid four" in
his light against the Main Street paving contract, was revealed by Mr.
Gold to the finance committee in special session. In brief, the councillor
means to take advantage of that provision in the provincial statutes which
requires hypothecation loans, such as
thc "solid four" are endeavoring to
negotiate in order to make operative
the resolution of last Thursday night,
to be signed -y the reeve, chairman
of the finance committee, and every
member of the council. It the matter reaches that point. Councillors
Gold and Thomas, and, it is understood, Councillor Twiddy, will refuse
to sign the hypothecation loan bylaw.
Councillor Gold states that he believes that he will win out in the determined stand he is taking on the
question. He declares that his ambition is to put the whole question of
the paving of Main Street to the people as a whole. If they turn the matter  down,  then  he  would  favor  the
