Questieins affecting  the  conduct  of
ehoul Hoard business during the past
, w   years   were   again   befure   Commissioner Crehan at sittings held this
,eek.    On  Wednesday, owing to the
eet that several of the witnesses were
lesent   at   Kamloops,   attending   the
School  Trustees'  Convention,  it  was
cided to adjourn the enquiry until
next Monday morning.    He will open
���  e-  investigation  into  the   Municipal
Council  on   Saturday  afternoon.
In   two   instances   during  the   past
week the Commissioner   made   surcharges.     In   explanation   eef a   difference of $114 in  the  contract  for the |
S -nth   Hill  school,  Mr.  J.  Bowman.
architect,   produced   a   memorandum,
written by Former Secretary Ferris, on I
School   Board   stationery,  and   signed
"\V. I'." as follows.:    "Ceicreift's con-1
tract, South Hill school, $1(1.4611," and
Mr. Bowman said, "1 must ask you to j
accept  that as evidence  that  my  fig-1
tires are right, according  to  the  information supplied to me by the secretary."    Mr.  Ferris denied    that    the
memorandum handed in by Mr. Bow-
.111.ni was written before the contract
was signed, and be asked the ComrnU.
sioner to show Mr. Bowman the copy
eel  his  letter  to  Messrs.  Cocroft and
Draper giving the correct amount.
The Commissioner added. "I will
set lie the matter by surcharging
Messrs. Cocroft and Draper, as they
ar. the unly parties who profited by
ilu error. The architect should have
been lined for making the mistake,
but I have no power to fine him. The
ani<>unt will be charged to Messrs.
Cocroft and Draper, and I will give
the-iu 30 days to pay."
As to the payment by the Board of
$150 for a special page advertisement
and editorial article published in the
"Preevince," advertising the educational facilities of South Vancouver,
the Commissioner contended that it
wn- not part of the duty of the
Sell. ..,1 Trustees to advertise South
Vancouver or the educational facilities of lhe district. That duty, he said,
if ii was a public duty, should be car-
ried out by the Council, and not by
the School Trustees, and he stated
thai he should surcharge the amount
against Me9srs. Barker and Greenslade, in whose motion the payment
was authorized. He gave them fifteen
day- in which to pay the amount."

To (he Editor of "The Chinook" :
Sir,���There are people in Suitth
Vancouver who have the reprehensive
habit of knocking South Vancouver
merely   for  the  pleasure    of    bearing
themselves talk.   Meist of them are
annexationists. If you press them for
their reasuns, fur actual fads which
warrant the knocking of South Vancouver, they have none.
1 have made it my business to confront about six of these gentlemen,
and their composite reason is their
impression that the Vancuuver assessment is lower than the assessment of
South Vancouver property. I believe. Mr. Editor, that the Seiuth Vancouver Assessor denies this. It has
been pointed out that in the City of
Vancouver the assessment is very
uneven and unequal; but suppose for
the sake of argument we grant that
Vancouver property is assessed al 45
per cent, of its value, and South Vancuuver property at 60 per cent, of its
value (which of course is not admitted), then it must be considered
that Vancouver pays 22;.j mills taxes
and South Vancouver \2'/2 mills. This
is certainly decidedly in favor of the
Seiuth Vancuuver system uf taxation,
But���and here ciimes a large but���
Vancouver must raise its taxation.
This has been admitted, and you will
sec that it will be done, or Vancouver
must annex adjacent territory and use
up the borrowing power of said territory within the present City of Vancouver.    He who will watch will see.
This coming year Vancouver will
be able to borrow on District Lot 301
and Hastings Townsite, and they will
borrow, as usual, to thc full extent of
their borrow-ing power, in order to
provide improvements which will be
considered absolutely necessary by
their aldermen. That is to say, the
borrowing power of the lately annexed districts will be used up in Vancouver. The same thing would happen with the South Vancouver borrowing power if the South Vancouver
citizens and ratepayers should be so
foolish as to vote for annexation. If,
however, South Vancouver does not
in the near future join with the City
of Vancouver, then it will bc imperative for the Assessor of the City
of Vancouver to raise the assessment;
and if thai happens the Vancouver
taxes will be much higher than the
South \ ancouver taxes. Because of
their higher millage their taxes will
be pretty nearly double as much as
South Vancouver.
All this, however, Mr, Rditur, would
scarcely matter if there was nut a
great danger that the progress
uf South Vancouver would be clinked
off. and that tbe improvements on the
North Arm of the Eraser w.iuld bc absolutely nullified. There is neet the
slightest doubt that South Vancuuver cannot hope that its harbor will
gel ils just dues if il sheeiild come under the influence uf thc "personally
conducted" Vancouver Board of
Trade. South Vancouver wants a
harbor, and in view of the fact that
it is now the third largest city in the
Province,   that  it     has    the    second
largest while population in the Province, and soon will be the second
largest city, it is entitled tu consideration from both the Provincial and
ihe Federal Governments. Little
cities like Nanaimo and New Westminster are duly considered. Smith
Vancouver! in spite of its large population, has difficulty in getting itself
listened to because of its municipal
government. If South Vancouver
were a city it would be entitled tn a
representative in both Ottawa and
Victoria. If South Vancuuver joins
the City, both Governments will consider that whal is given to the City
of Vancouver on the Burrard Inlet
side is given to all of the City, South
Vancouver being merely a district.
So, Mr, Kditeir, the only salvation for
South Vancouver is to incorporate
immediately, without fooling away any
more time, if possible before the
Federal, as well as the Provincial,
House meets.
The very same people who scur-
riluusly decry South Vancouver, although citizens uf South Vancouver,
are apt tei decry the efforts of the
Smith Vancouver patriots wilh regard
to harbor improvements, 1 would
like tu tell them that a harbor is not
created, as insurance parlance has it,
"by act of God"; a harbor is made
just like a business is made, such as,
fur instance, "Kelly-Douglas," "David
Spencer's," "Stark's," by men���and
men of big brains, men of energy and
enterprise. A harbor without such
men will never be a harbor, because
the physical aspects of the harbor arc
merely the expression nf thc enterprise of men. Thank Cud! South
Vancouver has men���leaders who are
determined to create a harbor in
South Vancouver, and as far as preliminaries are concerned they have already succeeded. In fact, they have
succeeded far beyond their best anticipations.
Thc people of South Vancouver
do not want a channel merely to Xew
Westminster in the Xorth Arm of the
Fraser River. They want harbor
facilities fur berthing deep-sea vessels,
and after they have created, through
their Board of Harbor Commissioners,
such a harbor, they will see to it that
they will get business fur their harbor.
It is a peculiar thing that the people uf Vancouver should be absolutely
dead tu (he fact that they will be unable to cope with the enming business,
and lhat they are in danger nf losing
that business, just as they were unable tn get Ihe Yukon business, which
they lust  through  pure  inertia.
If ihe people nf Vancouver would
take a pencil and start In figure un
the future requirements, they would
certainly "get a hustle on." Fur example. Major Gardner-Johnson is reported to have made a statement that
a conservative estimate of ihe crop
movements tn ihe West through Van
cuuver Would be nnc-lifth tti the
present crop���that is to say. one-fifth
of two hundred and fifty million bushels, which makes fifty million bushels
of  wheat.     Fifty   million   bushels  of
wheat, Mr. Editor, weigh three thous.
aiul million pounds, or one million
live hundred thousand tons. Te, figure
the   heading   capacity   nf   the   average
deep-sea boat ai four thousand tons
would be a high average���in fact, the
average is much lower. Three theeiis-
and tuns would be high; but let us s ly
four thousand tons to a ship. At that
rale three hundred and seventy-live
ships would be required t����� handle that
weight. I-.ach ship would require at
least five hundred feel berth room for
heading and berthing purposes, su at a
rough guess thirty miles uf wharfage
would In- necessary in handle tne
above amount uf wheat. If you further consider that in a very shnrt
time thc Lake mutes will be closed
on account of ice, you can assume
that with a tendency year after year
tu increase thc production ���>! cereals
ill the prairie district, the amount of
grain tu lie shipped ibis way will be
very much greater indeed, inasmuch
as the storage capacity in the districts where the grain is produced is
rather limited, and (he cry will be.
"Ship it eiui." and then, if the only
way tu shtp-butieim is via Vancouver
or   via   the   Cuast,   we   can   sse,     Mr
Editor, that if we hold out first-class
shipping facilities tei the grain handlers of the Prairies there will be absolutely no reason why we should not
have at least twice, perhaps at least
three times as much grain to handle.
But let us figure with these three
hundred and seventy-live ships calculated on above. These three hundred and seventy-five ships will come
towards Vancouver from all over the
world. They would either have to
buy ballast at their point of departure, pay for such ballast, pay for
putting it in, pay for taking it out
again, or they would have to get freight
Three hundred and seventy-live vessels all over the world will be bidding
for freight toward Vancouver, will be
ottering low charter rates rather than
handle unprofitable ballast. Remember, all these vessels will come here
practically at the same time���during
the wheat season. It would be too
expensive to store thc grain fur any
length of time: in fact, it would be
almost impossible to provide grain
elevators, and it would have to be shipped quickly to save interest, insurance and storage, and to realize on
it in hard coin.
What does it mean? This means
thai these three hundred and seventy-
live, or mure, vessels, will be crowding the wharves at Greater Vancuuver. and nut only crowding the
wharves with imported goods, bul
taxing the storage capacity of warehouses belonging to Vancouver merchants. It will mean low freight
rates on a lot of bulky things, such
as fence wire, crockery, all kinds of
machinery, steel, boilers, hoisting
machinery, etc., such as Scotland and
England pn educe; rice, sugar, bags,
bagging, twine, and a thousand and
one bulky or heavy articles which are
handled in the trade of the world, Il
will mean that Vancouver will become  the importing point    for    ihe
Middle West. Such cities as Edmon
ton and Winnipeg will import via
Vancouver, It will mean, inasmuch
as the cars bringing the grain unload
here, that there will be cheap freight
rates by rail back t.i Ihe I'rairie. It
will mean business, Mr. Editor���tre-
mendeeus  business,
We in South Vancouver have now,
paralleling the river, on the Canadian
Pacific   Railway,     four    and    a     half
miles uf trackage close to the water-
frontage, This trackage has been
electrified by lhe 11, (.'. Electric Railway Company, and "ii every feint 'ef
this trackage cheap power can be applied fur the purpose uf handling
merchandise. (In either side of this
trackage runs a street���Kent Street.
That will mean���if our Councilmen
are alert���nine miles nf warehouse
property where merchandise uf the
above description can lie cheaply
Stored, because it -can be easily hand
led. A frontage close in trackage, in
Conjunction with electric power fur
handling, certainly makes ideal ware-
In etise property. Anil all we havx lee
du is lu put the whole weight eif
South Vancouver behind ihe men
who an- Irving t,e bring this about,
and who, without a shadow uf doubt,
will SU* eeed.
But why. Mr. Editor, should there
be men in South Vancouver wine will,
through  merely  thoughtless  talk,  attempt to discourage men whei are trying  to  bring  work,    enterprise,    and
business   into   South   Vancuuver    for
the laborers, business men and manufacturers?    I  think ii is lime that this
class iif people shut up.   This morn
jing  a   Vancuuver     friend     eif     mine
"pointed with  pride" tu what  he  saw
i in the paper, that the Federal Govern.
I ment  was  going  to  build  a  Government dock.   Well, Mr. Editeir. I  have
j not  the   slightest  doubt  the   Federal
I Government will need it.    But what
[has that got to do with Vancouver
[dockage?    Vancouver   is   limited   for
i dock   space.     From   Hastings   Town-
site   east   it   would   be   impossible   tee
use  the   wuterfrontage  tn  advantage
! because   of   the   steep   hillsides   which
extend almost to Purt Moody.    That
is  tu  say,  from   Heaps'   Mill,  almost
' seven miles east, the watcrfruntage un
, Burrard  Inlet can bc used fur manufacturing  mily.     Vuu  cannot   make  a
Commercial   harbnr   anywhere   where
'you cannot do cheap teaming.   Cheap
teaming   means   cheap     handling     uf
freight,  and   you   cannot    do    cheap
teaming up a bill���you require level
ground.   That is the sine qua nun tti
the importing business.   Therefore the
N'nrlh   Arm   nf  lhe   River  is   essential
fur-tile development of the business
nf Greater Vancouver.    I'p    to    the
present   time   the-   Vancouver   people
I de, nut seem tu have realized this, and
until   they   realize   it   we   had   better
I paddle  our  own  canoe and  join   in
with   the   Municipalities   adjacent   to
the  \e,rih    Win   nf  iln-   Fraser,   who
seem tee understand whal    it    ia    all
about,���Yours, etc..

Mr.   H.   Colin   Clarke.   oi   the   legal
department of the C. 1'. R. was ap-

Mr Clarke has bad a wide experience
in municipal work, and his choice to
iln position was a unanimous one.
He will commence bis new dutiei on
October 1.
The question of ihe enforcement of

deputation ire.in the Cedai i ottage
branch of tin- W (' T I' !n a communication to ilu- Council ilu- following points were- set forth :
"Our contention is that - ime st..re-
keepeis who would otherwise remain
closed on Sunday are compelled to
keep open from the fact thai their
competitors ihe s,,. and if they did not

The Council as a body felt that
something Bhould be done. In the
meantime it is the intention of lhe
Council i" secure a list of all traders
in the municipality who keep their
stores  open  on   Sundays.
Magistrate McArthur was granted
leave of absence to attend the School
Trustees' Convention at Kamloops,
which  is  taking place  this  week.
L'peni a request of the Cedar Cottage Disiriei Improvement Association il was decided to make several

Rtverviews Defeated in First Football
Fixture of Season
Thc football season was opened on
Saturday last at the Municipal Hall
by a match between these two clubs.
Councillor Thomas kicked off the ball,
and as he sent it rolling, he tripped
off the field as lively as any of the
players. South Hill won by a score
of 2 to 1. The result of the game was
an index of the merits of the cltlbs.
The Riverview team is a likely lot, and
the chances are that on hard ground
they would have made a drawn game.
So far as ability goes, there is not
much to choose between the two
clubs. The softness of the ground
was against bringing out the liner
points in passing, and it made the
going very hard.
Thc backs and half-backs on both
sides played a clean, nice game, while
the forwards showed some of the finer
points in passing. Many of the players were inclined to be selfish, and
instead of passing the ball were inclined to take a pot shot at goal.
Seldom has a game been played
where there were fewer corner kicks
or fouls. Throughout the whole of
the match, while each club strove to
gain the mastery, there was no dirty
or rough work. It is a pity that so
few spectators turned out to enjoy
what proved to be a most enjoyable
Around the Municipal Hall
SOUTH VANCOUVER
POLICE  COURT
Magistrate J. C. McArthur has become immortalized. A thousand
years after this his likeness will be
shown as one of the early type of Vancouver citizens. Kings, Queens, Princes and Princesses, Dukes, Lords,
Nobles and Knights, will gaze within the next few months upon the
picture of his face and wonder who
he is. As they study and look into
his face, who knows to what heights
or what position, in their mind's eye,
they may elevate the adminstrator of
justice in South Vancouver! Many
will think he is Premier of British
Columbia; others that he is a personal friend of the Connaqghts.
None will deign him the position of
Police Magistrate of South Vancouver and Point Grey.
How did this prominence come
about? On Saturday last thc Magistrate, in company with Dr. Hunter,
made a trip to Capilano, the Magistrate having waged a new hat with
Commissioner Crehan that he would
walk over the Suspension Bridge. He
made the journey safely, and on his
return, when just at the end of the
bridge he met Princess Patricia
and her maid. The Magistrate stepped aside and Princess Patricia turned
and smiled. The Duke and Duchess
were standing a few feet from them,
and the photographer took their picture. The Duchess will have these
pictures  sent  to  all   her   friends  in
every part of the known world. Copies
will lie on the reception rooms of all
the Nobles. The attention of Lords
ami Ladies will De arrested by that
scene of grandeur across the Canyon;
then they will study the faces on the
bridge, and as they look at the venerable picture of the Magistrate, their
natural exclamation will be, "Oh, that
is the Premier."
Magistrate McArthur says that he
had no idea that the Royal party was
coming to the bridge : he did not even
suspect who the Princess was when
he stepped aside. It was the delicious
smell of perfume, the lovely beauty
of the face, lit up with a radiant smile,
which made him glance up and see
that he was in the midst of the Royal
party, and that he was being photographed along with them.
Few have any conception of the
callers that visit Magistrate McArthur,
or of the hundreds of tales that are
unfolded within his office. Here
wives come to consult about erring
husbands, or vice versa; parents about
their children; neighbors to settle
differences over the ownership of
chickens or dogs. By these timely
visits the washing of a great deal of
dirty linen in the public court is saved.
One of the saddest tales that has
yet been told was listened to the
other night, and if the Magistrate is
able to keep his promise, then one
lady will  forever bless his name.
A line of $10(1 and Ce.sts was imposed on the Italian. Cnlengeln. found

IN SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
South Vancouver Now Ranks Second
in Province of British Columbia
South   Vancouver's   school   population now stands second highest in the
| Province of  British  Columbia.    At  a
meeting   of   the   School     Board     on
Friday  night  of  last  week   this   fact
I was   pointed   to     with     considerable
j pride.   The salary list now totals $11,-
000 monthly,   The number of teachers
employed now reaches a total of 107
besides four manual  training instruc-
j tors, an increase in the teaching staff
of sixty-nine during the past eighteen
months.    Five years ago  there  were
I only nine teachers in the municipality,
which   included  at   that   time     Point
! Grey and D. L. 301.
The   secretary   was   instructed   to

I The business section extends from
the Municipal Hall to the comer of
Eerris Road, ami at night, after everything has been lit up, the street presents an animated appearance. That
the merchants arc getting alive to the
possibilities of this section as a business mart is evidenced by every progressive citizen of Smith Vancouver.
A large business block is at present
being built south of the school, while
a large number of bungalows of a
superior class are being erected all
around.
Spiritually the people are well
le inked after. New churches of every
denomination have recently been or
are just being completed.
Altogether ihis section has the appearance of being a city of its own.
Not only is it successfully competing
with the city for the trade of the
residents around the district, but quite
a number of people from outlying
districts arc being attracted to make
purchases there. At the present time
Fraser Avenue residents have an Opportunity e.f securing a major portion
of the business of the municipality.

UNIQUE PROJECT AT
SAVARY ISLAND
Picturesque Isle in Straits of Georgia
to be Developed
Over in the Straits of Georgia is
situated Savary Island. Vancouver
men and Vancouver capital are striving to make this little place Western
Canada'! leading summer anil winter
resort. Their plans arc extensive, and
when worked out will give Savary
���Island a much different aspect.
tine of the chief features which the
promoters arc to incorporate in their
plans is a programme of a summer
Chautauqua, to be held on the shores.
It is hoped that the religious organizations will be induced to co-operate
with the Savary Island company in
this feature of the development, and
a canvass is soon to be made of the
most prominent leaders of the different denominations in Vancouver
and the many surrounding municipalities.
At La Porte, 'lexas, a similar plan
lias been carried on with great success, and every season 20,000 people
visit this resort. The Baptist Young
People's Union has been the pioneer in this southern city, and for two
to four weeks each year, approximately, 5000 members of this organi-

Mr. F. Mi Smith, one of the best
Uhoe men in Vancouver, has taken
; over the management of Mr. M. A.
Beach's boot and shoe store at the
corner of 26th Avenue and Main
Street. Mr. Smith is regarded highly
I ill the boot and shoe trade of Vancouver, having held important positions

that city. He will have complete
charge of Mr. Beach's Semth Vancouver store. It is the Intention of Mr.
Smith to conduct a number of Saturday special sales during the fall and
winter. The stock carried in this
store compares with that of any in
thc large stores in Vancouver, and
South Vancouver residents anxious to
buy footwear would do well to pay
a visit to that store before making
their purchases.
Seiuth Vancouver merchants warmly resent the decision eif the whole

Traders are generally of lhe belief
that this tax is an unwarranted handicap.

BY MOONLIGHT
THE CLIMATIC CONDITIONS are the best ever. The
peculiar action of the Japanese current, which has often been
mentioned by mariners, gives Savary Island the first breath
of the warm atmospheres for which the British Columbia
coast line is famous. Thc currents strike the Pacific waters
at this point, as shown on government charts. The rainfall
is a great deal less on Savary Island than it is on the mainland. It enjoys the exceptionally fine weather for which
the more open country on the Pacific coast is famous, namely,
the open stretches in the agricultural districts of British
Columbia. It is a known fact by yachters that, while it may
bc drizzling rain in Vancouver, at Savary Island the sun is
shining very brightly. Yachting will be a favorite pastime
during the winter months at Savary.
TRANSPORTATION : Arrangements have been made
by the company with the Union Steamship Company for a
special rate to residents of Savary Island. The large steamers
of the ocean steamship companies make regular calls at
Savary Island. We would suggest that you join one of our
parties at your earliest convenience and visit Savary this
season.

Vocations for Women
The household tasks that wcre once
I regarded  as  mean  and  commonplace
i are  now  being   raised   to   the   dignity
[eef arts and sciences, and in an American   paper   we   read  of  mending  as  a
Iprofession and .if   the   professional
mender  who gains  her  livelihood  by
j expert work in this line.
Perhaps the idea of making mend-
: ing a public service, instead of only
J a family one, is derived from Japan.
There women sit on the street corners,
and have done lo from time immemorial, mending the peeor garments of
coolies and olher passers by while
they wait.
There arc many ways in which this
' occupation  may  be adapted  to  Occi-
[ dental customs  and to the conditions
imposed  by  one's  individual   life  and
home ties.   The work may be done at
one's   own   home,     customer!     being
gained   through   one's   acquaintances
j or by advertising.    Two women in a
western  city  had a  card  bearing  the
words ".Mending Done  Here" placed
in the window of their own home, and,
though  their  charges are  reasonable,
they support themselves comfortably
and plan to see the world by means
e,f their necdlecraft, putting up  their
little sign here and there as they go
along, and thus making the money to
carry   them   farther   and   farther   on
��� their travels.
For menders who work at home it
is a splendid thing if a foothold can
j be  obtained   in   an   hotel,  or   even  a
' large apartment house.
Other women engaged in  this    occupation make a regular round of thc
homes of their customers, charging a
certain  amount.for   keeping   in   constant  repair  the  clothing of an  individual eer 'if a family.    It is not even
'< necessary to search out the frayed and
' torn garments and have them in readi-
j ness, for the competent mender knows
the ways of the  household, and  has
i access to the wardrobe and the linen
j closet.    She will overlook neither the
I first thinning in   the  fine  table-cloth
j nor  the  seeiled   frill  in   the  collar  of
J one's   dress.     Even   the   worn   shoelace is discovered, and the patron of
the  professional  mender  has  no  fear
of  appointments  tardily   fulfilled    or
trains missed on account of the nerve-
racking discoveries which are always
cropping up at the worst possible moment and putting out of commission
the  only  possible  gown   or   wrap  or
hat   for  the  occasion.     On   the   contrary she has constantly  that  easeful
sense of confidence  in  her  wardrobe
with which one  starts off em  a  long
visit,   having  previously   spent   hours
and days and weeks sewing on hooks
and eyes, running in ribbons and replacing soiled accessories.
The services of the mender are par.
ticularly a boon to the business or
professional woman who feels her
time too valuable in her own vocation
to be spent on clumsy essays into another, especially when someone else
can practise that other with s., much
more speed, skill and profit than she
can.
Another scheme for the woman who
is dexterous with her needle is that
of going out to mend by the day, at
a fixed charge, as seamstresses do,
excepting that one Mould go to the
same family not for several days
twice a year, but for one day in each
week, or two weeks or a month, as
is desired.

Some  Appetising  Dishes
(Kidney-bean Relish)
Kidney-beans, which contain much
nourishment, may be appetizing as
well as wholesome. The difference
between a plain, uninteresting course
and eene that tempts the eye and the
palate is in seasoning and decoration.
Let a cupful of kidney-beans soak
over-night in plenty of cold water.
Set to cook in fresh water, and let
them simmer until nearly tender, letting the water evaporate. Chop a
green pepper line, and to il add the
pulp scraped fronv an onion and two
tabiespoonfuls of chopped parsley.
Cook in two tabiespoonfuls of butter
until yellow. Add salt and one cup
of tomato puree, and when boiling
stir in the beans. Conk until the to

(Ring Salad I
The salad is often the salvation nf
the meatless meal. It may be mnir-
ishing enough t" take the place of
meat, lish, or eggs. It is often, eef
course, largely ci impounded of cgy:,
or lish. either alone or combined with
vegetables, and in hut weather it i��
a delightful substitute for the tin.re
formal   hot dish.
Among egg salads one of the prettiest is the ring salad :
Hard boil six eggs; cut in slice- and
renifive the yolks. Place these in ihe
centre eef a serving-dish, breaking
them in fairly good-sized bits, and
outline with the white rings arranged
on crisp lettuce-leaves. Serve with
mayonnaise.
(Water Lily Salad)
A water-lily salad is on the same
principle, and differs only in appearance. The eggs are cut in strips
lengthwise, and these strips are arranged on nasturtium leaves like the
petals of a water-lily, with the broken
yolk in the center of the flower, mixed
with  mayonnaise  dressing.
Cream-walnut salad, made by pres
sing the two halves of an English walnut on the sides of a ball of cream
cheese, is delicious when served with
lettuce and cheese balls and French
dressing, all ice-cold.
Cheese sauce, made like a thin
white sauce with grated cheese stirred in liberally, adds much lo ihe
charms of rice croquettes and gives
them as well a dignity that entitles
them to the main place on a menu,
while this same sauce may be cooled
eiff anil have eggs beaten iu, as in the
case of the salmon souffle, making a
cheese souffle that is most satisfying.

NO LONGER A LITTLE VILLAGE
PORING over statistics is a laborious task to the average
man. yet but a brief study of the figures given out by
Bjlilding Inspect.,r Young, of South Vancouver, from
week t" week anil month by month reveals one of the
most remarkable events in the history of the rapidly-growing West. As it is true of the prairie towns that they grow
overnight, so is it true of South Vancouver.
Three or four years ago South Vancouver boasted a
few hundred homes, with about as many inhabitants.
There were few places of business, and what there were
resembled the old corner grocery store in the East, where,
sitting round on favorite seats, the village gossips, behind
wreaths of tobacco smoke, recited the scandals of thc day.
Today conditions are changed, for South Vancouver has
verily sprung up over-night. The population of South
Vancouver is now placed at 35.OQ0 souls. Some even go
s.i far as to say that it is nearer 40,000, though 35,000 is a
conservative estimate. With the rapid settlement of the
district the old corner grocery store has disappeared, and
in its stead are many places of business that would do
credit to thc best stores of a metropolitan city. Growth
in population has brought in its wake increased business
activities and a feeling of security that South Vancouver
has reached a stage where it is able to support itself.
But it is possibly from the view-point of the home-
liuileler that the ligures presented by Building Inspector
Voting are so striking. Up to the latter part of last October
no effort was made by the municipal authorities to take
count of the value of new buildings erected from time to
time within the borders eef South Vancouver. In October
last the system of issuing building permits was instituted,
and when that plan has been in operation for one year it
is the opinion of the Building Inspector that the value of
new buildings erected in South Vancouver will come close
to the $3,000,000 mark. In view of the fact that by far the
greater portion of that amount has been expended in
erecting homes, South Vancouver's building achievement
during thc year just closing is a matter which commands
attention. In number of permits South Vancouver now
ranks with the City of Vancouver. The City of Vancouver alone outstrips South Vancouver in the erection of
large blocks and buildings. Even that will be overcome
when South Vancouver takes its place among the leading
cities of the Coast.
WHAT OPENING OF PAXAMA CAXAL MEAXS
IT is a statement of fact that no place in the British
Empire will benefit tu a greater extent with the opening
of the Panama Canal than the Province of British Columbia.

Columbia ports will be shortened by K.415 miles; the distance from Liverpool to Vancouver, B. C, by 6,046 miles.
At the present time New York is neit much nearer the
seaboaril of liritish Columbia than is Liverpool. Ships
from British Columbia, whether bound for Liverpool ,,r
New York, have to sail around the Horn and then reitind
by Pernainbuco, which is almost equidistant from New
York and Liverpool. Colon, at the Atlantic end of the
canal, is 4,270 miles from Liverpool, and 1.961 miles from
New York, which gives the United States a commercial
advantage over England, so far as British Columbia is concerned, of 2,759 miles. But this province itself stands to
benefit enormously by this perforation of the western
coast of the American continent. The rapidly increasing
produce of the western half of the Dominion will find its
permanent outlet through the British Columbia ports,
then through the canal te) thc United States, the British
Isles, and Europe; and the vessels will return laden with
manufactured goods for distribution into the vast Canadian hinterland. Mines, timber, fisheries, fruit���every
industry of this wealthy province will feel the immense
Stimulus of the new means of communication.

*��    the
IX EFFECT OF THE ROYAL VISIT
T effect will the Royal visit to Vancouver have on
e people of the Old Country and on their views as
regards this outpost of thc empire where the lions guard
the Pacific? When the Governor-General's message
reaches the ears of his august nephew, it is certain to bc
read with the greatest gratification and published broadcast in the United Kingdom. But will the impression
conveyed by the Duke of Connaught bc instrumental in
awakening the people of Great Britain to a realization of
the good things this country holds in store for them?
That is the essential feature of the whole affair.
"Wc all like to see royalty, and we try to do thc best
we can by them, but in the end we are after the dollars,
or rather the English sovereigns, and mean to get them,
of course, by every legitimate means. Now, will this
flying visit have that result? It is bound to be a big
advertisement for this City in the Motherland, and no
doubt will give the financiers reason to pause and think
of thc possibilities of this vast country���possibilities that
they have as yet not the slightest conception of. Canada
wants English money, and wants it badly, and English
people want Canadian industries, and want them worse
than we want the cash. So it is up to both countries to
get together and see if they cannot arrange something
definite  that will be  of mutual advantage.
MR. VOGEL'S LETTER
\Y/'* would draw the attention of every reader of this
" paper to Mr. Vogel's letter, which appears on the
front page of this issue. His references to thc part thc
North Arm of the Fraser is to play in the commercial upbuilding of South Vancouver are stated in plain and unvarnished form, and it will be a difficult matter to refute
his array of facts.
Great harbor improvements will be staged on the North
Arm of the Fraser River. With Burrard Inlet taxed for
space under present shipping conditions, there is no hope
that that harbor will be able to handle, to any extent, the
grain whieh will flow to the Pacific Coast with the opening
of the Panama Canal, let alone take care of the stupendous
quantities which men of standing assert will come. Necessarily a harbor will bc sought elsewhere, and that harbor
will be along tbe banks of the North Arm of the Fraser.
Just what that will mean to the commercial and business
life of South Vancouver is almost too great to contemplate. Preparations for that business must be made, and
those preparations might best be left in the hands of
South Vancouver men rather than in the hands of tin-
City of Vancouver, which always chills with the mentioning of the North Arm of the fraser.
Mr. Vogel also touches an important point���gaining
Federal and Provincial representation by incorporation of
South Vancouver, Through such representation the possibilities of tin- North Arm would met be obscure, while as a
part .if Vancouver City we might well sit back and take
our chances, knowing the attitude of Vancouver on the
question of harbor improvement.
South Vancouver has a principal part to play in the cotn-
me.re.ial development of this peninsula. Its most valuable
asset is the North Arm of the Fraser River. Any annexation schemes with Vancouver City weutld reduce the North
Arm to a secondary place, and rob South Vancouver of
the fruits which are due her with the development of that
waterway.
A SUBJECT FOR NICK CARTER
HPHE exploits of Lieutenant Burns to capture the New
~ Westminster Bank of Montreal safe-crackers in
Chicago the other day reads like a chapter from a dime
novel. Had there been possibly a little more Western
atmosphere to the event its staging would doubtless have
been perfect for all fiends of lurid literature.
Thc romantic has played quite a part in this celebrated
bank robbery since the lirst news was flashed across the
continent a little over a year ago. Detectives from all
parts of Canada and the United States have been attracted
by the size of the reward offered for thc capture of the
robbers, and the hunt has taken many startling turns. The
most recent episode in Chicago is worthy the pen of a
Nick Carter, and many a paper-backed edition will come
off the presses with the Bank of Montreal robbery in New
Westminster as the foundation for thc story.
No matter how the robbers got away, the fact remains
that they made their breakaway in comparative ease, and
tei all purposes are now securely swallowed up in the towns
of the underworld. Perhaps there may soon bc another
chapter to what looks like the most yellow fiction.
Financiers, financiers, financiers, onward! This would
appear to be the slogan of the moneyed men of the United
Kingdom today in respect to British Columbia. They
toil not neither do they spin, but yet they accumulate the
dollars. Having conquered most of Ihe financial
worlds in thc Eastern hemisphere they are turning Iheir
attention te. the West in the hope that there will be fresh
fields and pastures new. Just now there is a shipload of
them em iheir way to partake of the shower of gold that
is falling.
In all truth the West seems to have attractions for
these people that no other part of the world has. It's a
ease of lhe magnet and the steel. The money is the magnet. If lhe Immigrants are not coining mil here as they
sheeiild, the kings of finance are, seeking what Ihey may
devour. After all it is an indication that thc people of
England anil Ihe other countries that go to make up thc
L'nited Kingdom have still unshaken faith in thc resources
of this province���a matter for which we should bc thankful in these days of keen competition, when each country
is vicing with the other as to which shall offer the most
attractive investments.
(Toronto Globe I
Canada, lhe Land of Promise, re-
ceivei no greater advertisement in
this greatest of Exhibitions than in
tlie composite display of the liritish
Columbia Government. The varied
climatic conditions which prevail in
the Pacific Province lend themselves
to the cultivation e,f almeest every orchard   and   agricultural   product,   and
as a result the exhibit is a revelation
to the denizen of the effete East who
has nol visited this fertile garden on
the western coast.
The fruits deserve especial mention.
Apples of every variety, ranging from
a beautiful rosy crab to a great cooking apple almost six inches in diameter are exhibited, paying tribute to
the fertility of one or other of the
many prosperous valleys of this won-
elerful province. Peaches from the
Kootenay and Okanagan Valleys testify in their blushing beauty that
while fruit growing is one of the infant industries of British Columbia, it
is quite certain to rival mining, lumbering or fishing ere many years have
passed. The rapid increase in the industry is best shown by figures from
the Government booklet ancnt the
possibilities of the Province. In
1902, the total fruit shipments by rail
wcre 1,956 tons; in 1907 4,743 tons; in
1908 6.498; and in 1910, 8,745 tons.
The figures for 1911. however, more
than doubled those of 1910, being 18,-
902. This represents merely a small
percentage of thc whole crop, the
bulk being consumed locally, while
much is shipped by water.
The quality of the peaches and
grapes grown in southern British
Columbia can scarcely be excelled,
the crisp, dry air and bright sunshine combining to impart a Ittscious-
ness and flavor lacking in the fruit of
hot countries, and thc exhibit in the
Government Building pays high
tribute to the progress of fruit-growing  in  the   Pacific  Province.
The action of the Department of
Agriculture in inaugurating throughout the province a system of packing-
schools to give tuition on the proper
grading ami packing of fruit has done
much to lend an impetus to thc industry, and as a result fruit-packing
has been brought to a line art in
British Columbia. Careless or dishonest packing is not tolerated, offenders being severely punished.
But possibly a still more interesting feature of the display is that of
the school children of Vancouver and
Victoria. British Columbians claim
that they have thc best system of
education in America, and the results
of the technical training of the children would go far to prove their
claim. Manual training has here
reached its highest perfection, and
the exhibit showed such worth that
when Mr. Thomas Benyough, Dominion Commissioner of Technical Education, visited the Exhibition last
week, he requested if it would be possible to secure the entire display for
a permanent exhibit by the Commission at Ottawa.
Nor has Domestic Science been
neglected. Millinery, dresses, embroidery, lace work, all of excellent
quality and more than creditable to
the girls who had learned to make
not only useful, but ornamental necessities, arc on display, and bear proof
that British Columbia in its system
of education is building up a womanhood well equipped to bear their part
in the work of nation-building.
From the great forests with which
the northern part of the Province is
covered are samples of the enormous
trees which make the lumbering industry in British Columbia the greatest in the world. To see a cross section of a Douglas fir seventy-two
inches in diameter seems almost incredible, but that cedar should measure fifty-five is almost more wonderful.
The mineral case, containing sixty
specimens of ore, forms a fitting climax
to this exhibit in that it gives a slight
impression of thc wonderful richness
of the mining industry in British
Columbia. The exhibit, which is in
charge of Mr. W. J. Brandrith, Exhibition Commissioner for British
Columbia, and Mr. 11. McClure Johnston, reflects great credit on the Hon.
Price Ellison, Minister of Agriculture,
and his efficient deputy, Mr. W. E.
Scott.
A WARXIXG TO HOLD-UP MF.X
1 OOKING into the barrel of a shooting-iron held in
*������ thc hands of a desperate man is not conducive to the
rapid settlement of any law-abiding community. Police
records show that the operations of the highwayman and
the hold-up thug have been staged to some extent in this
municipality, not to the same degree, perhaps, as their
operations in other centres, but enough to warrant more effective measures for their suppression.
Large areas, sparsely settled, with but a limited police
force, no matter how efficient the officers may be, offer
themselves as likely fields for the lawless element. While
South Vancouver has escaped to a large measure from
their visits, it does not remove the responsibility devolving upon the Municipal Council of affording ample protection for all who sojourn and pass within the boundaries
of this municipality.
That the Council is alive to the condition of affairs was
shown at a meeting of the Police Committee last week.
Ways and means of increasing the efficiency of the police
force to best cope with any emergency were discussed, and
it will be with considerable relief that some definite plan
is learned.
South Vancouver in its present stage of development
can afford to send out but one invitation to the knights
of the underworld���a display of strong-arm tactics will
Talking of delegations���their name is legion nowadays���the Mother-country is particularly well represented in the West by a few British parliamentarians.
First we have a Scotsman, who says that Home Rule
shall pass. Then comes Right Hon. Walter Long, a sturdy
Unionist, who declares with equal emphasis that it shall
not. Following him we have another Caledonian who
gives him the lie direct; and last is an English member,
who is a Laborite, and who, without dropping his
"aitches," throws down the gauntlet, and asks anyone to
tread on the tail of bis coat when he asserts that Ireland
shall have self-government. All of which is very interesting to Canadians, but more so to those people from
the Old Land who have made British Columbia their future home.
* *    *
Hon. F. D. Monk, Minister of Public Works of the Dominion Government, should not be blinded as to tbe possibilities of the North Arm of the Fraser River by the activities on Burrard Inlet. Burrard Inlet has a part, and
is playing a part. Thc North Arm has also an important
role to fill.
* *      e*
South Vancouver must reap advantage from any railway development that takes place in Vancouver. To grasp
how much greater those benefits would be with South
Vancouver a city rather than a suburb of Vancouver requires but thc most rudimentary knowledge of conditions.
Popular Games���Croquet
Next to football, croquet is probably
the most dangerous game on the list.
11 is played with an unlevel piece of
greensward, round wooden balls wearing belts of variegated hues, and
wooden sledgehammers, whose larger
portions, situated on the lower end,
are movable and have a way of following lhe ball on its course as a
general thing. The first move in croquet is to place tbe ball which you
have chosen a few inches in front of
a wire called an arch or wicket, according to your birthplace. The ball
is then hit forcibly with the mallet,
and you at once ejaculate "Oh, fudge!"
when you discover that you have
made a fuzzlc and simply bent the
first wicket. Your partner now does
the same thing, and little by little you
drive the balls about the grounds,
sometimes through wickets and sometimes over them, until, in about the
middle of the game, you decide that
you have played long enough and
carefully place the bails and mallets
in the box on tbe veranda, where baby
soon finds them and has great glee
in rolling the balls.to the ground below, where they crack open in the
rain during the night, thereby saving
you the trouble of making vour life
and that of your week-end guest a
burden.���C. G. Garretson.

The  Mantle  of   Red   Evans
By lll'OII  PENDEXTER
After    swinging   off   the   stage   at
Sandville, he- paused in ir,��111 ol thc
express office, anel i<,r a moment
gazed up and down the Street. The
only oilier passenger hael briskly
crossed to McCartyi Hotel, and was
now entering. Brushing the red hair
back freun hn forehead, anel squaring
his dusty shoulders, he followed her,
only In- selected the door opening into
the bar.
The transient population eef the
town wai fairly large-, owing te, the
mines, and nee particular attention was
paid lee the newcomer, except as the
driver pointed after him and confided
te, the express agent ;
"Thai chap is hungry. Watch him!
litit the little piece- ol calico can take
care eef herself."
Thie observation in regard tee the
male pa.-escnger was home eeut as
loon BS he entered the bar. After eyeing the big man in the soiled apron
speculatively,  be  advanced    i<e    the
sawduit  border  in  front  e.f  the   fool
rest,  and   staled :
"I'm broke, 1 want a glass of milk
anil a e-e.uph- i,t" sandwiches. I'm expecting money through the mail to
night,  and   1   v. ill  square  up as  vieen
as I get it."
As if ihis statement eliminated all
possible objections tei his receiving
credit, he rested his hack and elbows
against the bar, hooked on4 heel over
the   fe,nt rail,   and     stared     curiously
ihrough ihe open doorway Into the
general living room or office.
l-'eer several moments there was a
silence, while lhe half-ihizeu loungers
seeftly set down Iheir glasses anil
stiffened to enjoy the expected drama.
It reejtiircd a certain period e.f lime
for the insolence of the stranger's eiflf
hand request to penetrate the slow
intellect eef thc man behind lhe apron.
Thc bartender was an autocrat, wine
cnuld give carelessly on ail impulse, or
suspiciously bestow drinks when the
supplicant was adequately abject. Hut
this was different; and as his cits
tomers interpreted the passion cm
purpling his broad face, they frowned
and scowled at the stranger's tin
heard-of temerity. The newcomer,
meanwhile, seemed to be absorbed in
his study of the inner room.
The bartender reached his apogee
of resentment. He slowly removed
his apron, to the applause of a general,
expectant grin. lie hived this homage
i if the always thirsty, all hough at
limes he pretended to brush it aside.
Now he accepted it with a promise
in his eyes; and, stepping behind the
stranger, and thrusting forward his
sullen jaw, he clapped a hand mi the
dusty shoulder and in a low- voice demanded :
"VVho'n thunder bc you?"
The stranger's blue eyes never
ceased staring at the open deior, nor
did he seem to sense the menacing
hand gripping his shoulder and twitching nervously, preliminary tee .spinning
him about.
"Who'n thunder he you lee come
around here giving off orders as if
you was a Vandcrbilt?" rumbled the
bartender, bracing his lefl hand
against thc bar.
"I'm Red Evans, from down Cul-
hoes way," quietly replied the
stranger, without shifting his position
ur diverting bis gaze.

As this was his first vi-it tee Sand

"I'll bet it's One Eyed Brown, down

"No one can tell nothing abeiut it,"
replied the bartender, openly admiring
the hand that had roughly se-ize-.l Mr,

"Wonder where he carries his gun?"
muttered the express clerk.
"Yc'rc welcome tn find eeut. I ain't

The bartender condescended tei explain.
"Some say lie carries it in his side-

Mebbe he carries two. All's I know is
that mi man can pull an' fire quicker'n

The Permanent Paving Material���
CONCRETE
A pavement which will provide for all conditions
of traffic and climate must be constructed on a common-sense basis.
Concrete is recognized as thc only material suitable
for permanent work, and is used as the foundation for
all modern pavements.
The discovery of a satisfactory concrete wearing
surface has been made in Granitoid after years of experimenting and study. In our Patented Granitoid
Pavement we have a concrete base,and a concrete
wearing surface that will meet all the requirements
of automobile and vehicular traffic, and a pavement
that will become more durable with age. An investment in Granitoid pays the highest returns in durability
and satisfactory service.

A worldly young man, prone to

of collar for men. The dome of the
Capitol was represented encircled by
one of thc collars, and on thc Senate

placards giving prices and sizes. The
placard on the Senate end of the Capitol read. "Quarter size," and that on
thc other end said, "Two for a quarter."

themselves in their blankets, how to

Mrs. Blanc was giving a tea party
on her yacht. The affair for some

would come long, deathly silences.
Suddenly Mrs. Blanc, losing her
balance, fell heavily against her
mother-in-law, who sat beside the low
rail, and with a moaning cry the dear
old lady went headforemost overboard.
Of course she was rescued; but
afterward Mr. Blanc took Mrs. Blanc

The Best Advice
on Lumber Costs
the Least Money
and when we say to prospective
homebuilders that "mew's lhe lime
to build," we are offering you
really sound advice. No matter
what you have heard about cheaper
lumber, take it from us that you're
on the safe side if you build rigln
now. In the face of all this talk-
about

We believe you'll agree that lumber has a fixed value, and that by
delaying lhe building of your new
home you will gain nothing bul in
convenience.
We believe we can convince you
that the above is good advice���

Bishop Rowe, now of South Dakota* was upon a certain occasion
obliged to start out afoot to reach a
church in an Eastern State. The
August day was close and hot, and
lhe road was dusty, so that after half
an hour's pedestrianism the reverend
gentleman was well pleased when a
man drew along in a spring wagon
and offered a lift. His reverence
wore no clerical garb and the state of
his apparel after thc tramping gave
small indication of his calling.
Thc team jogged into a deep wood.
The churchman deemed thc time and
the place lit for the broaching of
spiritual things. Accordingly he
opened the subject���rather abruptly,
he confesses.
"Young man," he demanded solemnly, "are you prepared to die?"
"Do you know," the bishop innocent
ly explained afterward, "the fellow
gave a whoop, dropped the reins,
jumped off the seat, and, before I
could say a word, he had gone crashing through the woods! Now, why do
you suppose he did that?" SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1912

Very Mysterious
An old colored woman had occasion
to call thc doctor for her husband,
who was very ill. The doctor made
a diagnosis and pronounced it a
severe case of gastritis.
"Oh, Lor', doctor," ejaculated the
old woman, "how did he eber get dat
gastritis? I ain't burnt a ting but
coal tie in dis yere house, an' powerful little ob dat."
"Wealth has its penalties," said the
ready-made  philosopher.
"Yes," replied Mr. Cumrox. "I'd
rather be back at the dear old factory than learning to pronounce the
names of the old masters in my picture-gallery."

"Tell her that I'm going away���that
I'll never bother her again," lhe visitor pleaded. "Lay it em strong,
Xurah."
"Arrah, it's a shame she won't see
yez," said Norah, highly indignant
"She's that tiny I'll pick her up under
me arm and bring her here, even if
1 lose me job fur it. Mr. Evans."
As he moodily waited, and became
convinced that Xurah was unsuccessful in her emest, his face became
naggard in despair. In the agony of
his meditations he failed tu note the
rapidly increasing crowd e,i men in
front of the hotel. Ile had eyes only
fur the door through which he was
praying she would enter. Consequently, he was astounded to feel
a rough hand mi his shoulder, tu behold a bloated, hairy face close Iu his,
and to gaze into a pair uf bloodshot
eyes, thatched with dirty reddish
��� brows.
"Stand up on yer pins, ye dude!"
growled the intruder, puking the niuz-
zel of a forty-four against the young
man's throat.
Evans mechanically obeyed, his gaze
unflinching, but his thoughts still with
the girl.
"When I heard tell ye was passing
yeself off as Red Evans," continued
the newcomer, "1 hustle over here to
show yc up. I'm Red Evans! I wanted
to see the pup that had the nerve to
make believe he was me. And tu find
a slim cuss like yuu. no bigger'n a
tinker's dam! I'm ashamed to do it.
I wish ye was a man growedl"
"You are Red Evans?" whispered
the young man, resting his hands behind him on the table.
"1 bc." roared the other, flourishing
thc revolver. "And I'm here to make
yc answer for yer nerve. To t'ink of
ye making believe ye was the real
Simon pure R. E.l A man of your
size pretending to be a gen'lman! I've
told the gang outside 1 was going to
drag ye out by the heels! D'ye understand?"
Before the young man could frame
a reply, there came a swish and a
swirl uf skirts, and the small manager
stood between them, her hands
clinched on her hips, her eyes flashing and flaring into the astounded
ruffian's  face.
"You cur!" she gritted between her
teeth.  "So you  are  Red  Evans,  eh?"
"Gawd! I didn't know ye was here!"
he cried in a whining tone.
"If you speak another word you
will leave Sandville a dead man," she
cautioned, advancing upon him as he
have had him a dozen times. And as

"Then love me anil marry me, anil

She slowly removed her hands, and,
unashamed of her tears, studied him
anxiously.
"I ��� I can���trust yem'-" she timidly
whispered. "I���liked you at sight
I surt of cried after yuu wouldn'l hi

"Then you'll love me'" he exulted,
half stretching out  hi-  anus.
"I reckon I du now���a little," -lie'
whimpered.
"rent how elid yuu know I wa-n't
Red Evans?" he remembered tu ask-
as they sat side hy side mi the hair-
clutli  sofa.
"Red  Evans  was my father," she
explained. "His real name was
Holt. Ile died two months ago at
Ciilhues. His friends kept his ileath
a secret, as he left many enemies who
might annoy nie if they knew I was
alone in the world. McCarty was his
friend. My father gut a reputation
as a bad man hy accident���in defending my mother frum insult. He had
to live up to his reputation or be
killed. He always warned me against
men who carry guns. He was my
father, and I'm proud of him and his
fearless life, anil he left me enough

"You'll make me the best little wife
in the world!" he ecstatically cried.
"I'll make you a good husband"
she stoutly assured him.
"And you'll forgive me for trying
to play the diplomat?"
"I have forgiven you already," she
replied. Then she mused : "Only

older, forbade him to mention the subject again.

When Sir Thomas Lipton was a
small boy in Scotland he dropped into a church one Sunday morning and
was put by himself in a pew directly
in front of thc minister, who preached
a sermon on the text, "Am I my
brother's keeper?"
The parson, who was unusually eloquent, talked on this theme for about
forty minutes, and finally worked up
to the climax of his remarks. He
kept his gaze fixed directly on the
little Lipton, who began to fidget and
look very self-conscious. At last,
after an overwhelming outpouring of
long words, the minister, his eyes
blazing, made a quick gesture and
shouted at the boy :
"Am I my brother's keeper?"
Lipton could stand the strain no
longer, and replied in a meek voice :
"No, sir."

SPORTING COMMENT
The world's lacrosse championship
for 1912 will be decided at the Provincial Exhibition in New Westminster on October 1 and 5, when the
New Westminster team, champions of
the 11. C. Lacrosse Association, and
the Cornwall club, champions of the
N. L. U., battle feir possession of the
MintO Cup, which carries with it the
title of world champions. The cup
was held by New Westminster for
three years, going to Vancouver in
1911. Thc Salmonbellics regained
possession of the trophy this summer,
and the Cornwall), by virtue of their
victories in the East have come to
the Coast in an effort to carry off the
silverware.
It was first arranged to play the
Minto Cup games in New Westminster during the week preceding the
big fair. The exhibition management,
however, scented a big attraction, and
an offer to the clubs of $7,000 for thc
two games was accepted. Joe I.ally,
the big lacrosse stick manufacturer
represented the Cornwall club in the
transactions. The games will be
played on the opening    and    closing
ROSELLE KNOTT
In    "The    Awakening    of    Helena
Ritchie," at the English Bay Theatre
October 3 and 4
Cup is being decided in New Westminster, there is a possibility that
simultaneously another attempt will
be made on the Mann Cup by the St.
Catharine's club, champion! of thc C.
L A. Early this week a challenge
was received from the Eastern champions, and at the time of writing the
wires were being kept hot in an effort
to arrange the series. The dates suggested were October 2 and 5, and the
Vancouver Athletic Club team is
straining every point to make the
matches possible.
��� ���   ���
The showing of thc Winnipeg C. N.
R. team in the recent cup series was
a keen disappointment, and it is probable that of all the disappointed ones
the challengers were thc hardest hit.
After failing in Vancouver, however,
they had the satisfaction of downing
the Victoria Club, which has always
been a serious contender with the
V. A. C. team in the capital city.
Even now the Victoria club would
like to arrange a special series of
games with thc Mann Cup-holders, as
they do not admit that thc V. A. C.
dozen can master them.
A visit of the St. Catharine's club
would add spice to the amateur game,
and give the fans a chance to sec how
thc Eastern amateurs performed. It
would be the first visit of an Eastern
amateur team to the Coast in quest
of the Mann Cup, and would probably
occasion even greater interest among
the followers of the game than the recent trip of the Winnipeg challengers.
* *    *
Vancouver's chances for another
pennant in the Northwestern League
were shattered during the past two
or three weeks by loss of games to
Taeoma and Victoria. While they
were dropping occasional matches to
those clubs, Spokane and Seattle managed to keep on winning, and the
breach between the Beavers and thc
leadership was widened rather than
lessened, while the tail-cnders in the
league wcre receiving their attention.
This week the Spokane club is playing the final series of the season at
Recreation Park, and with Seattle
taking pickings from Taeoma, the
eyes of the fans in the Northwestern
League are focused on the race for
second place, which is now being
staged in Vancouver. Spokane had
the advantage at the time of writing,
hut should thc Vancouver club take
five of the seven games to be played
they would emerge a few points ahead
of the Indians. To win anything less
than live games out of thc scries will
relegate them hack to third place.
A good deal of interest is centred
in this series, and as it will mark the
closing of Recreation Park as a baseball rendezvous, peculiar interest is
being evinced in this series.
The race in the Northwestern
Leaenie has been a splendid one, in
fact it would bc difficult to point to a
more   interesting   one.     I-or   a   long
time it looked as if thc Beavers might
repeat; but if they didn't. Bob Brown
certainly kept them in the hunt until
the finish, and only a few points
separate them from the flag.

A crimp was put into the professional boxing game on the Pacific Coast
when the Oak Bay Council declined
to grant a permit for the scrap between Ernie Barrieau and Joe Bay-
ley or Al Jeffs, of Victoria, on the
night of October 31. Prize-fighting
comes to the end of its tether sooner
or later, and the promoters of bouts
in the squared arena are driven back
further and further on the edges of
civilization.
The Barrieau-Bayley bout will not
bc pulled eiff in Victoria, where thc
promoters would dearly have loved
to have staged it. Thc decision of
thc Oak Bay Council rings a warning to fight promoters that they will
have another fight on with the authorities of Vancouver Island. That
part of the province is rapidly assuming the decorotisness and sobriety of
older settled sections of the Dominion.
Otter and Salmon Fight
Undoubtedly it will interest your
sporting readers to hear of a rare, and
1 may say rather a unique, occurrence
witnessed by a party of anglers fishing the Blackwater, Ross-shire, on the
9th inst., at 8.40 p.m. The party in
question wcre fishing up the east side
of the river, and crossed over Bogie
Bridge and began fishing deiwn the
west side of the river, when they were
rather startled by a strange commotion going on in thc next pool, about
80 yards distant. They stood in
amazement looking on at something
rushing and splashing in circles at al
most lightning speed, and could not
very well say what it was, although
a fish-tail would be seen at times, hut
eventually a salmon was seen struggling and kicking up the opposite
hank. But the salmon had another
fight for liberty, and got back into
thc water again, when practically the
same evolutions were gone through,
hut towards the end getting feeble,
anil once more the salmon was taken
ashore, when one of thc party shouted, and the otter quietly slipped away.
The fish was retrieved and examined
very carefully, which disclosed only
a few scratches and one eye pierced.
It turned thc scales at only 5 pounds.
One would have thought he would he
20 pounds at least to put up such a
game fight. I may say that tlie otter's color assimilated so well with
thc surrounding, and the fish was so
very dark that we could not sec him
distinctly.���"The Scotsman."
"We have some experts figuring on
a system of good roads for your country." "Yes," replied Earmer Merry,
"that has been coin' on for some time.
The principal trouble about thc food
roads movements in this neighborhood has been too much brain work
and not enough manual labor."

additional attraction for thc exhibition, as besides all of the many other
acts, exhibits and concessions, the
visitors to the fair will now have an

of the East and West play thc national game of the Dominion for the historic Minto Cup, possession of which

*       ��       ele
Sportsmen of the entire mainland
are looking forward with keen expectancy to thc Sixth Annual Gold
Seal Road Race, which will be held on
Thanksgiving Day. Thc date of
Thanksgiving Day has not yet been
fixed, but it will probably be Monday,
October 21. That gives something
less than a month before the actual
running of thc race, and local mara-
thoners are working hard to get into
the best of condition for thc race,
which is now recognized as the premier long-distance event of the Pacific C.iast.
The race will be run over the same
course as during the last three years���
twice around tlie Fairvlew Belt Line.
Starting from the Cor..er of Granville
and Pender, and coming down Pender Street from Main to Granville on
both circuits of the course, makes the
distance lo be covered exactly 11 1-5
miles. Last year Cameron L. Smith,
'he young Bowen Island rancher, eov-
v I this course on the near world's
record time of 1.03.38, and established
a new record for the course.
Mr. Wm. J. Tulk is again organizing
the race, which is an assurance that
it will continue to bc the blue-ribbon
event of the Coast  Marathon events.
As in the past he will donate the lirst
prize, and it is expected that the prize |
list of last year of $400 will be con-1
siderably exceeded this year.
��    ��    *
By the way, the Minto Cup challengers are now in New Westminster.
where they are working out preparatory to the big games. While there is
no perceptible feeling of anxiety on
the part of the followers of the game
as to the ability of the Salmonbellies
to hold thc mug. there is the usual
amount of interest, which follows all
cup fixtures.
Especially is this noticeable in view
of the fact that the Cornwall club
will display new faces to the Coast
fans, while their true capabilities on
the lacrosse field are somewhat of a
hidden quantity. Joe Lally, however,
knows the strength of the Coast clubs,
and Joe must have some confidence
in his Cornwall club, or he would not
bring them to the slaughter at the
Coast.
��    ���    %
The matches, coming at the time of
the New Westminster Exhibition,
will no doubt bc attended by bumper
crowds. The Westminster team, as
the past season showed, is as great
as ever, and these will bc few who
will care to wager on the chances of
the challengers.

Wood Block Pavements in Chicago
A simple record of the steady increase in the
use of Wood Block Pavements in Chicago ir.
a strong and typical testimony to the merits
of this type of paving.
The following table shows the area of wood
blocks laid in the years mentioned :
1903  188 square yards
1904          7,288     "
1906        13,250     "
1908        85,870     "
1910      103,177     "
1911     271,000     "
1912     400,000     "
The total wood paved area in Chicago today is 589,806 square yards. By the end of
1912 the total yardage will be approximately
a million, equal to 62 miles of 30-foot street.
Wood Block Pavement puts an end to the
barbaric uproar of city streets. It brings our
cities to the standards of the European capi
tals, where Wood Block Pavements are almost
universal wherever there is heavy traffic.
In addition, Wood Block Pavement is the
only pavement which outlasts granite block.
It is, in fact, the only pavement which is both
durable and quiet. It is slippery on fewer
days of the year than any other smooth and
quiet pavement, and truck drivers go out of
their way to use wood block streets for the
sake of the easy traction. The laying of wood
block always brings to a street an increased
traffic.
The oldest Wood Block Pavement in the
United States is on Tremont Street, Boston,
Mass. Asphalt laid alongside of it has been
worn out and replaced. The Wood Block is
as good as ever, and although the guarantee
period has expired, it will not need repairs or
attention for many years to come, the wear
up to date being practically negligible.

20 cents, which ultimately ran up to
$1.75. Thereafter the fun became fast
and furious. Large numbers of the
baskets brought in prices from $3 to
$5. After everything had been disposed of it was found that the sale had
realized the sum of $54.50. Mrs.e
Baird was declared the winner of the
lirst prize for the best designed and
most neatly dressed basket, while
Miss Olive Batchelor ran the winner
close with a good second. So tastefully and neat were all the baskets
that the judges must have found it
difficult to make the selection.

of gratitude to the ladies for the manner in which they entered into the
getting up of the social and the contributions they made. Mrs. Hoskisson
had the honor of getting first prize
as being the biggest bidder, while Mr.

was then cleared, and to the music
supplied under the leadership of Mr.
Spencer the young people and some

thankful to those who so generously
contributed to its success.

"The School of Certainties"
The
Success
Just a Word  About
Our Staff
A school is no stronger than its staff.
The teachers in all our schools arc experienced. They know their subjects and they
know how to teach them. They are the
best paid Business College teachers in the
West. If the time should ever come that
we have to employ cheap, inexperienced
teachers in place of our high-salaried heads
of departments, wc will go out of business.
The Principal is a graduate in Arts from
Acadia University, a graduate of the Business Educators' Association of Canada and
holds an Intermediate Chartered Accountant's Certificate. In addition to his actual
office experience, gained as chief accountant
for a large Joint Stock Company, he has
had eight years' experience as a Business
School  teacher and  manager.
Miss H. Howson, Vice-Principal and
Director of the Shorthand Department, is an
Ontario Normal trained teacher, holding a
professional certificate, and is also a graduate of the Business Educators' Association
of Canada. After four years' experience as
a public school teacher she became Principal of the Shorthand Department of the
Peterboro' Business College, which position
she filled for five years with entire satisfaction, resigning to become Vice-Principal of the Garbutt Business College, our
Calgary School. The fact that Miss How-
son has joined our Vancouver staff is an
assurance to the public that we are maintaining the same high standard for which
our otlTer schools have become so noted.
The other four members of our staff are
all qualified teachers, who have had experience in the teaching of Commercial
work.
