South Vancouver Rises to the Occasion
Seeuth Vancouver has given liberally of her men Of the
thousand who have volunteered for service with the British forces,
several  hundreds are already  either  in  Valcartier e.r e.n the tiring
line.
The  wives  and   families   wlio   have  heen   left   behind   must   be
pre.teeted and  the  Municipality of Seeiith  Vancouver is prepared
'tn do her duty towards these dependents of patriots,
The City of Vancouver has over-subscribed the $100,000 fund.
The task set before South Vane..uver is to raise but $10,000. There
is every prospeel that the local fund "ill be made up anil probabl)
over-subscribed.
< )ne difficulty being met with by the canvassers is that man)
cases are encountered where South Yaiiceiuve r citizens and merchants have already contributed tee the fund In lhe city. Be it
saiil tn the credit eif these that they are nofVheeJitating tei make
further contributions to the $10,(100 fund.
One of the large contributions which opened the fund was
that of $1,000 frum the Dominion Creosoting Ceempany. Another
gift was made by the Columbia Bitulithic Company of $21X1. While
these gifts Indicate a broad public spirltedness, the fund will have
t'i depend upon the smaller contributions. Scores e.f merchants
are placing contribution boxes in their simps and are giving liberally in kind. Mr. Broadhurst, of Ceelar Cottage has given stove
pipe elbeiws and patent cleaners to be auctioned eiff at a later date.
A man in Collingwood offers a ton of potatoes which may be
auctioned off. There are several pieces of real estate which will
be given with the understanding that they may be raffled eeff or
auctioned fur the benefit of the fund. The Main Street Liberal
Club has approximately $50.00, the proceeds of a recent concert
which will be turned uver tei the fund. The -taffs of the South
Vancouver schools are making up a general fund and are contributing percentages of their salaries. All the churches are organizing tn set aside generous contributions to the fund, The
municipal employees are considering the proposition of making up
a  fuml among themselves.    Alsee  the  councillors  promise  to give
liberally.   Every concert hall in South Vancouver, it is stated, will
be donated freely fur the holding of patriotic concerts.

There's a keen, rugged face looking out three' the night

There's a keen, rugged face peering out through the smoke,
At the foe wlm -tanels dogged���at bay���

As we "Victory" cheer, her poor heart tills with fear.

Correspondence
"FIGHTING   JOE"   AT    KALENBERG HALL
To the Editor of the '���Chinook" :
On Friday evening last 1 went tei
hear the Hon. Joseph Martin, K.C.,
M.I'., at Kalenberg Hall. The meeting was call (so the handbills stated)
for the purpose of formulating sonic
practical scheme to aid the working
man and the poorer class of people
in these admittedly hard times. At
the meeting, Mr. Lewis told us he
understood Mr. Martin would have
something practical to put before us
���and he surely had. From his broad
political, legal and business experience
Mr. Martin assured us that the cstah
lishment  of a  Moratarium  would  bi
and when she had got the property
back, she would find herself unable
to re-sell it or realise anything on
it; therefore the widow would bc
worse off and the purchaser wouhl
have lost his or her original investment in the property. Then again.
Mr. Martin's imaginary widow may
be a poor, hardworking woman, who j
received a thousand or fifteen hundred
dollars upon the death eif her husband, and invested it in property
which she hoped to keep for a permanent home for herself and the
children. In nine cases out of ten
the thousand or fifteen hundred wouhl
neit he sufficient to buy the property outright, and so she purchases it
subject to a mortgage payable in
small monthly installments, which
she endeavors to make by doing twee
>r three days' extra housework every
week.
If the Moratarium is not established  the   widow  is  at  tlie  mercy  of  a
King George, with the Prince of Wales at a cricket match.   A sportsman in time of peace, George Rex is a warrior in time of war
of no benefit to us. and he went <>n
tn prove his case by citing the case
of a widow who is living on the interest of money invested in mortgages, etc. lie claimed lhat tlle establishing eef a Moratorium would
take away the widow's means of living, and then, with a studied effeert al
iniprcs-siveness. Mr. Martin asks,
"Wouldn't that be a sad state of affairs?" Xow I claim that the payments of interest or principal, on
mortgages or agreements for sale
will cease whether tiie Moratorium is
established or neet. for the very K'eexl
and simple reason that the people
have no money to pay thein with and
are unable to get work anel earn
money. Xow. in the case of Mr.
Martin's imaginary widow, she would
hike off tee lur legal advisor (good
for business, isn't it, Jeee I and in all
probability woulil be told tee take
foreclosure proceedings. This would
mean   more   expense   for  thc   widow.
cold-blooded mortgage company who
wouhl not hesitate to take away her
home and compel her to lose her original investment, and as likely as not,
the mortgage company may be backed or financed by German capital;
Then, Mr. Martin, "Wouldn't that bc
a sad slate of affairs?" Again, there
are numerous cases where the fathers
and sons have been dismissed from
work and find it impossible to obtain
employment .if any kind, or the
breadwinners may have gone to tiie
front, in which case or cases, the
family's income stops and they arc
at tlle mercy of a mortgage ceimpany
or the vendor of the property they
are trying t.i purchase. Mr. Martin
bad a remedy, or rather 1 should call
it a grievance, against tlle banks. His
remarks on this were business-like
anil I believe, practical, but they only
applied to those in a position tei put
up security, which a working man
who has paid one-third or less on his

home, could not do. Mr. Martin has
had lots of valuable experience of
various kinds in all parts e.f the world,
but evidently his experience has only
taught him there is no money in lighting for the rights of the working man
or poorer people���there is money of
-ourse in selling him lots in the
'Martin Subdivision," ami then, when
particularly hard times come along,
insisting on the payment of interest
or principal under threat of fore-
:losure  proceedings.
Aa an orator Mr. Martin is interesting. As a defender ejf the rights
eef that class e>f people who need no
defence, he is indeed a valuable asset
���but as an upholder of the rights of
the working man and the rxwrer people. Mr. Martin is���well, just what
you would expect any other lawyer
to be, a dismal failure.

AT THE FRONT
MANY great battles arc beini^ fought. On the
lirnatl acres of France and the fair fields of
Belgium hostile armies are facing each other in deadly combat. In beautiful little towns sn grey
with age that the whole atmosphere has heen religions,
fire and the sword have worked destruction, the streets
have heen strewn with dead, the sky has been aflame
with lire, the air has been thick with the groans of the
dying.
It does not need a highly dramatic imagination to
conjure up thc horrors of a battlefield, to see "in the
mind's eye" the carnage, the destruction, the horrors
���Such horrors as were summed up in the words of
General Sherman. "War is I lell!" And what of thc
woman'and children at home? 'Ihey are on the fighting line.
Do you remember the words of Enoch Arden, "Keep
a warm hearth for me for I'll be back my girl before
you know it."
With that bright, happy optimistic view all "Our
boys" have gone out to "the front"���they all hope to
come back again victorious and crowned with laurel-..
Victorious they will be. They will earn iheir laurels
���hut, how many will come hack?
The waste of war is 60 per cenl! Out of every
ten sent in to actual conflict with the enemy six art-
laid hors de combat by thc enemy���or by a worse
enemy���the actual foe���fell disease, thc result of privation and exposure. War is the game of Emperors
and Kings and a deadly game it is. As the Rev. Mr.
Unsworth so eloquently said on Sunday evening, "The
women viewing this game of war may repeat the words
of the old song���'Wives and mothers maist despairin!
Call it lives o' men.' " Yes! lives o' men hy the hundred thousand are being thrown away in this grim
game���this bloody game of war and the wives and
children are the sufferers.
The men who go to "do and die" do their duty. You
must do yours, I must do mine and our duty is to
make every necessary sacrifice for those who suffer
by the temporary���or alas! it may be the permanent
absence of the bread-winners. The anxious heart,
torn with emotion as the battle ebbs and flows must
not be worried by woes and wants. The children
who morn and night miss their absent���perhaps their
ilead father's kis> must not miss what his industrious
hand provided for their needs, their comforts. While
he is away W'e, You and I must be the husband of the
lonely wife, the father of the helpless child.
Give! Give!! Give!!!
Tlie greater sacrifice you make the more virtue.

JINGLE POT AND JINGOISM
ELSEWHERE in this issue is a letter from Mr.
i (gie, no doubt a loyal citizen, urging the South
Vancouver School lioard to cancel certain coal contracts recently made with a firm handling the product
of the famous Jingle Pot mine. The reason given is
that the Jingle Pot mine is alleged to have heen financed with German capital.
Assuming that thc colliery in question is owned outright by German capitalists, if the coal is of good
quality, mined by Canadian workmen under fair conditions, dug from Canadian soil and is offered at the
right price. Jingle Pot coal should be as desirable for
the fire places of tlie most loyal homes as any other.
Because the owners of the Pacific lluilding in Vancouver tolerated as a tenant for several years a German baron whose loyalty to the Hritish flag is now
questioned, seems no good reason why all the other
tenants should now move out of the building and maybe dynamite a very excellent office block.
There was a talk some time ago of the Provincial
Government seizing all the property held in liritish
Columbia by the man Alvensleben and returning it to
thc Crown.
When Sir Richard McBride discovered that in
practically all the Alvensleben interests Sir Donald
-Mann and Sir William MacKenzie and the Canadian
Northern Railway had a finger, the idea of confiscation
was abruptly given up.
South Vancouver School Hoard demanded Jingle
Pot coal because it was good coal and had been mined
under decent conditions. Trustees gave it preference
because the owners of the mine were the first to sign
Up a fair wage, fair working condition agreement with
the striking Vancouver Island miners.
This publication endorsed and encouraged '.lie
School Hoard in the attitude taken at that time .md
is prepared to continue in that stand.
Evidence has been given that thc owners of thc
Jingle Pot mine are not German capitalists. Reputable coal merchants have come forward to orove that
the Kaiser's barons have little or no connection w ith
the mine. Finance knows no politics or international
boundary lines and it is well known that German gold,
Hritish gold, American gold and French gold are
pretty well intermingled in the industries of development of Canada. The gold which controls the DuP.s-
muir Collieries on Vancouver Island said that it w i.iid
he cold steel and starvation for the striking miners;
the gold which controlled the Jingle Pot mine chose
to he fair with the miners. The South \ ancouver
School Hoard, in an effort to encourage fair treatment to workingmen, sought to encourage the J.ivAe
people in their good work by giving them tlie pat
ronage of the schools of South Vancouver.
Mr. Ogle, it might he mentioned, has been engap*ed
in the selling of coal throughout Greater Vancouver
His firm does not handle Jingle Pot coal.

from Twenty-fifth Avenue will not
have to take the long, roundabout

Installed at last in the Municipal
garage at the corner nf Fraser Street
and Wilson Road is thc new Municipal ambulance, probably the most
modern, most completely equipped
ami practical car on the Pacific Coast.
From the great cushioned tires upon
which the new ambulance rides, to
the most intricate detail of the interior arrangement of the spacious,
airy body, Dr. Murphy, head of the
medical health department, and the
members of the council have spared no
pains in  their  specifications.
Mr. II. J. Tucker. WW Pender Street
West, was entrusted wilh the building of the car and Mr. Tucker has
carried out his work in a manner
which gives him great credit. Mr.
Tucker is familiar with the requirements eef the municipality in this regard and has, in the past, supplied
the municipality with motor apparatus which has proved most satisfactory.
Thc special chassis of tl��e new ambulance is from the famous Abbott-
Detroit factory. Thc car is driven
by a sixty horsepower six cylinder
continental engine. It is equipped
with a self starter, Warner clutch and
transmission four speeds, autolite,
universal joints, the marvelous Abbott rear axle and is fitted with Timp-
kin   bearings   throughout.
Dr. G. II. Murphy personally superintended the building ol" the body
of llle car and Mr. Tucker was careful to see that the special design required was carried mil. The interior .if the car is broad and roomy
and is finished in a mahogany, It
is electrically lighted and well aired.
There is a rear door and alsee a side
door, the special couch upon which
patients will bc placed is equipped
with a new extension device which,
resting on ball bearings may be extended beyond the end of the car for
the reception eef patients. Upon this |
couch is a pneumatic mattress which
rests upon a stretcher. Thus a patient may be moved without jar or
irritation because of careless handling. There is space in tbe car for
the arranging of a second couch if
necessary. There is a medicine cabinet at the front and a basin and tapped to which lead pipes from a fresh
water receptacle placed above.
The car is painted a battleship
grey, with gold lines. On eilhcr side
is the sign of the Red Cross.
If the car were to run on tbe rims,
the construction of the chassis is
such that there would bc the minimum of vibration. However, the
tires selected for the car complete
the non-vibration scheme. These are
the well-known Goodyear tires, manufactured in Canada, best fitted to resist the attacks of the four chief tire
troubles, rim cuts, blow-outs, loose
treads and punctures. Thc tires on
thc ambulance are designed to avoid
skidding. Those who know tires
know that the Goodyear grips are
deep, sharp, resistless. Vet the tread
���fiat and regular���-runs as smoothly
a-   plain  treads.
Thc ambulance will be on call day
and night at thc Municipal Hall. For
lhe time being it will be used by the
police and health departments jointly and will lill a long felt want ill llle
organisation of the municipality, particularly bi applied to the health department.

CEDAR  COTTAGE  NOTES
NOT FOR HER
In the great war at the beginning
of the last century the public was
asked to subscribe, not merely for relief funds, but for the actual raising
of forces. And by no means everybody subscribed even for that. Dean
Ramsay reckons as the best of bis
stories of the old ladies of Montrose
the one concerning the maiden lady
who was canvassed for funds to organize a volunteer corps for the
King's service. "Indeed," she replied,
"I'll dae na sic thing; I ne'er could'
raise a man for mvself. and I'm no
gaen to raise men for King George."

"If the explosives contained in thc
German shells which wrecked the
beautiful Cathedral of Xotre Dame at
Rhiems were placed under British
Columbia stumps, how many acres of
land would they clear?" this was a
question asked at the Winnott Stores,

Messrs. Munro and Arnett believe
that next to the waste of life and the
destruction of beautiful buildings and
towns, one of the appalling features
of the war is the waste of dynamite
and  gun  powder.
There is n��i material more useful
in times of peace than high explosives; nn material more hellish in
times   of  war.

Mr. Pantages decided tei rebook them.
AKsky's act this year is another spectacularly sfarged production 'if a

ami melodious strains mi their guitars have never been heard in the h cal

host eif friends  than  ever before.
The added attraction for the week

war.   the   soldier   spirit   showed   itsel
in   the  answer,  "If  my   country   calls
I'm  there."
The General was in chairge o' the

which was uneler Lon' Methucn's

In menshunin' General Wauchope
I came across an amionymous poem
the ither nicht while I wis ruinmagin'
through sonic auld books, an' it's
weel worth printin' again.    Here it is:
Scotland, mother "f heroes, weep,
Weep fe.r thy fallen brave,
Another of Ihy sons lies low,
Laid in a soldier's grave.
There iu lhe front of battle.
'.Mid flying shot anil shell;
At the head of his Highland heroes,
"fwas there brave Wauchope fell.
There, where the fight was fiercest,
lie drew  his  latest breath;
There, for his Queen and country,
lie died a soldier's death.
A soldier lie lived, as a soldier died,
Died- as only a  soldier can.
At the head of his Highland heroes,
Leading them in the van.
What  more can  a soldier wish.
What more could his heart desire,
Than to fight his way to Heaven,
Up through the enemies' fire?
The berries are red on the holly

Colonel Matthias, a man weel kent
in Edinburgh, wis in command, an'
within fower months hc had met his
death nn the road tae Magersfontein.
Richt here will I menshun tbe
name o' a man tbat has endeared himsel tae every Scotsman���a soldier,
first, last an' a' the time���aye an' a
brave yin���General Wauchope.
My first acquaintance wi' the General wis when be wis enntestin' a
bye-election in Sooth Edinburgh
agin Arthur Dewar (a brither o' the
whuskey Dewar).
It wis durin' the negoshiashuns
leadin' up tae thc war an' wis jist
aboot the time when "Joey" had intimated at Hatfield ' that the "sands

Shall abide with us for ever.
Then tae get awa tae the ither end
o' the toon we wud min' o' the Scots'

Cherfy Pickers), tbe Carrlbanneers���
an' numerous ither cavalry regiments
wendin' their wey up frae Jock's
Lodge tae the ilrillin' grun' in tbe
Queen's Park. Wha canna mill' o'
the famous Greys as they came chair-
gin' across the "dreelly grun'."
Mounted mi splendid grey horses,
they were a sicbt worth seein'. I ean
are min' us laddies had a great fancy
for the drummer's heerse. It wis tbe
only In -se ill the regiment that wisna o' the historic grey. A beautiful
piebald,  its iirriage  when  marcbin'

So faur the war has a'nieest entirely been a lodger's affair, but that's
nae reason whv wc should forget tac

ITS DURABILITY���Does not crumble or pulverize under the densest traffic; second only to granite

ITS EASE OF REPAIR���No difficulty being experienced in removing and replacing the blocks; no
expensive plant or skilled workmen required.
ITS SANITARY QUALITIES���Creosote being a
high'y antiseptic and waterproofing material instantly destroys all germs, prevents the absorption of
street filth and consequent decay.   .
ITS NOISELESSNESS���The rattle and bang of
vehicles passing over its smooth surface absorbed
and muffled till the quiet ot the dix load is oUam-d.
ITS DUSTLESSNESS���Does not pulverize; the
heaviest traffic only pounding down the wood fibres
to offer the greater resistance.
TTS CLEANLINESS���Having a smooth surface and
being waterprool it does not differ in this respect
from asphalt.

THE HUNS
Mascot,  104th Westminster  Fusiliers
Many limes, when stories nf wanton destruction by lhe Germans have
j been teeld. have we heard Ihe remark.
"They   are   worse   than   the   Huns!"
Who were the Huns that have such
an unenviable reputation leer cruelty
and   wanton   vandalism?
Ai least i'i ur peoples have been
called Huns, but when lhe term is
used in the sense indicated above the
allusion i- J.> the Huns whu invaded
llie East Roman empire from about
A.D. 372 1" 45.1 ami were must formidable under the leadership of At-
tila.
The Huns fremi their haunts in the
Steppes lying to the mirth nf lhe
Caspians made a westerly movement.
They crushed several small nations,
unknown to fame, compelled other
small nations to join them and they
then proceeded to attack the powerful  empire   of  the  Ostrogoths.
Much history was made by tbe
Huns during successive years and at
last we come to the time they wcre
led by Attila. He made the whole
Schthia his own, bc laid the Unman
Empire under tribute, lie and his followers ravaged Media. The sack of
Aqueilis, tbe destruction' of the cities
of Venetia were marked by fearful
scenes of pillage and cruelty and finally when Attila died, in 45.V be left
a name, which has lasted for centuries as synonymous with wanton destruction, rapine and pillage. The
actions of the Prussians in Louvain
and other places may give the Huns
and Attila rest in favor of their successors.
