As was mentioned before the Allied Printing Trades Council of Vancouver purpose having a basket picnic
to Nanaimo on Labor Day. While ii
unfortunately clashes with the demonstration at New Westminster ii is
recognized that this is abeiut the only
day the members eif the trade are
free, the exigencies of their calling
preventing them from turning out cn
masse any other day.
They are certainly great in the
boosting line and they have issued
the firsl number of a weekly four-
j page sheet entitled "The Allied Ocean
Roll." The following is from the
lirst page and will serve to show their
intentions   em   that   day;
On Monday, September 1. Labor
Day. the Allied Printing Trades Council of Vancouver will Imlel their lirst
annual excursion and basket picnic.
This outing is tee be known as the
"Printers' Ocean Roll," meaning, ne>

stercotypcr iii Vancouver will by that
date have accummulated a "roll" upon
which he will draw and take his wife
and family, mother, sister or friend
for a roll across the Gulf of Georgia
to Nanaimo, where the day will be
spent in unrolling a varied programme
of sport, including baseball, foot races, tug-of-war, dancing and general
holiday   making.
The palatial steamer "Princess Royal" has been engaged for the occasion
and will leave the C.P.R. wharf at
H.30 a.m., and returning will leave
Nanaimo at 7.30 p.m, A first-class
orchestra has been secured and will
be in attendance during the day. beeth
on the trip across anel on the grounds.
Nothing that will tend towards the
comfort and pleasure of all who attend is being overlooked by the committee having arrangements in hand.
Particular attention is being given tee
every detail thai will ensure a pleasant  eiutiug  feir the children.
The members of Nanaimo Typographical Union arc preparing a royal
welcome quite in keeping with the
reputation of that city for the hospitable manner in which the citizens
entertain their visitors. This fact,
coupled with the popularity of thc
trip across the Gulf, which is too well
known to require comment here, is a
guarantee that large numbers will
take in this excursion on Labor Day.

Dramatic Scene at Municipal Hall
Officials About to Sign Contract
Edward Gold appears. Writ in Hand, and Calls "Hold"-
Millar and Dickinson Go to the Mat���Paving Contrac
Held up Temporarily���Injunction Will be Set Aside
However.
There was a gunpowder explosion
every half minute' at the meeting of
the municipal council at the Hall.
Monday. It was all about the block
paving contract for Mam and Fraser
Streel-. The contract was duly made
out, satisfactory, apparently to VI
parties, and the reeve and clerk were
about tee put their signatures tee ii
when, like a beilt from the heavens,
came a  writ.
It was a writ (feet mit by no Ir--
an one than Mr. Edward Gold, pree-
perty owner, ratepayer, citizen.
This writ wa.- given by Mis Honor
Judge Mclnnes and temporarily restrains the council e,f Semth Vancouver freem proceeding with the paving
operations,
In the getting out of the document,
much red tape had to be gone through
with, and it appears that Councillor .1.
D. Millar anil Councillnr Thomas
(and Councillor Thomas is the man
whii was recently branded by Mr.
C.ohl as an "aiitcdcluvian fossil")
hail sworn nut affidavits tu the effect
that the paving eif Main and Fraser
Streets was mil in lhe best interests
of?the community, and that the con.
tract was being given illegally and lo
on and so forth.
Anyway, the council is tied up for
'iftjtvw days in the matter and the cnii-
Tl5t'|eors, who were ready to go righl
ahead with the work, are being put
tei.; considerable annoyance and ex-
p��fisfc.
oi Thursday, the matter came up
re Judegi' Mclnnes in chambers
aiwb was threshed out, and freem what
can be gathered al going to press, the
Mftit i- aheent in be set aside by the
courts.
Mr. Gold, the man wlm succeeded
iu -laying operations, is a heavy pro-
pi rty owner "ii both Main and Fra-
si r Strets, has constantly opposed the
paving of these two thoroughfares
and has been one nf the strongest
critics eef the policy of the pres mt
council.
In the course of the meeting. Monday, there was one event that musl
in it be lost sight of. That was the
fracas between the sober and staid
Councillor Millar and the militant representative from Cedar Collage. It
seems that Councillor Dickinson had
the idea that Millar was endeavoring
to double cross his associates in
���the 'iriatter of the paving contract.
This Councillor .Millar resented with
much emphasis. Hoi words followed
ami' Councillor Dickinson expressed
hi- willingness to take Councillor
Millar outside and settle the matter
in good old fashioned style. Among
other things. Mr. Millar, who preferred a verbal duel, labelled Councillor Dickinson as a "swine." Councillor   Dickinson    went   right    hack    al
Councillor .Miliar In saying that any
thing iu the was of liquor he' eve
drank, he "paid for himself."
Reeve Kerr stopped the argumen
and had -"ine- diffii uliy in restorinc
order.
The   paving   e|lH'Mliell   was   discil-sei'
at a special meeting of the board o
works Tuesday morning and it was
agreed i" recommend that a new con
tract feer paving Main and Frasci
Streets be entered into at a reduction
��� ef $_'(>.4(X) mi the previous contract.
At a special meeting of the council
in the afternoon, Clerk Springford
announced thai a communication had
been received from the deputy regis
trar to the effect that Mr. Justice
Morrison had granted an order restraining the municipality from entering into a contract with the Dominion
Creosoting Company, the contractors
for Main and Fraser streets, and advising the council to guard the municipality accordingly. The communication was referred tee the Solicitor.
Councillor Thomas moved that all
the papers connected with the contract be laid em the table. It was
pointed out that at present no papers
were in existence as the old contract
hail been abandoned and a new contract had nol bun entered into; but
it was stated that whenever a contract was made all papers would be
laiel on the tabic in the ordinary way.
Letters   of   protest      from      several
property owners against the paving
proposition was read.
The council discussed the question
of establishing a precedent in regard
i to the cost nf grading mails for per-
man cm   paving,   whether   such   cost

large buildings have been erected,
three mile- of roads and paths have
been laid, flower gardens, broad green
swards and extensive clearings have
been made, and altogether the outlook
and views combined with the substantial effects of the buildings are hardly
equalled at any exhibition grounds on
the continent. Before the exhibition
starts on August 30, over $150,000 will
have been expended, and the judgment

The  Truck   Triumphant
The FEDERAL TRUCK has never been an experiment
The Federal Truck was not offered for sale until its power, its strengti,.. its
durability, its economy, its success had been scientifically demonstrated.
The (act that there are in operation today 1000 Federal Trucks of the original
Federal design demonstrates tlie scientific soundness of that original Federal design.
The Federal was the first successful truck designed, built and sold by a company
organized exclusively for the manufacture of trucks. We have never had to rebuild
s Federal.
We have never had to replace a Federal.
We have never had a serious interruption or complaint of Federal Service���with
1000 Federals in hourly operation.
That record is unique���also, we believe, conclusive evidence.
We experimented before we sold a single Federal and 1000 Federal owners are
satisfied because we sold them a scientific success.

THE ELDORADO PROVINCE
A I \SK\ is again in the limelight and sensational gold
A discoveries on Shushanna Creek are heading the argonauts from the four corners of the earth to Vancouver
and Seattle to outfit for the gilded north. Newspapers
are devoting columns to the remarkable discoveries being
made in the Shushanna district. Distant fields look green,
and hundreds e.f men will risk their lives and their fortunes to reach this remote Alaskan camp, passing over
on the way territories within easy reach which will probably prove to be the richest in the production of gold
of any of the world.
It has not been widely advertised that British Columbia
produced in 1912 gold to the value of nearly $6,000,000, yet
such was the gold production of this province last year,
and this has been about the average record for more than
a decade.
The production of British Columbia placer gold for
1912 amounted to $555,500, the largest output in this class
of mining since 1908. Of this sum $180,000 is credited to
Cariboo���an output less thaJi thc average return from this
division, but an improvement over thc previous year.
Quesnel is credited with $50,000, the best return for some
years. The production of Omineca was $8000, just about
half the average return for that scotion. Atlin produced
$290,000, the largest return from that division since 1907.
Revelstoke produced $4500, the best return since 1908, due
to the striking of a new deposit on French Creek, in the
Big Bend of the Columbia. Lillooet is credited with $5000,
same amount as for previous year. Returns from other
sections were nominal. To the end of 1912, British Columbia had produced placer gold to a total recorded value
of $72,194,603.
Lode gold is rapidiy gaining on the placer production,
the total lode gold to the end of 1912 having amounted to
$70,859,(K)2, while thc annual production of lode gold is now
tbo' t ten times the placer production. The lode gold for
1912 amounted to $5,322,442, a value exceeded only by
1910, when it amounted to $5,533,380. Of the gold production Rossland is credited with $2,729,949. or rather
better than half of the total lode gold yield ed the province
for.the year, while Boundary conies next with $2,167,229.
The Rossland return is the best since 1908, when it a-
mottntcd to $2,941,630. The Boundary return is the best
with thc exception/.of 1910, when it amounted to $2,176,-
427. ,'.      '
The leading producer of free milling gold is the Nickel
Plate mine at Hedley, in the Similkameen, but the returns
are included in those of the Boundary, a method of tabulation against which the Similkameen has vigorously protested for some years, as the free milling production is
thus included with that eef the smelting ores of tbe Boundary. From the returns of the Hedley Gold Mines Ltd.,
we know that company produced last year gold to the
amount of $748,133.14; and the mine produced to the end
of 1912 gold to ihe total value of $4,177,947.
Nelson was the next best gold producing disttict for
the past year, with a return e.f $361,994, mainly derived
from the Queen and Mother hide mines on Sheep Creek.
The gold yield of the district shows a Serious falling off,
being Only about hall the production of 1910, when it
amounted to $761,359. Slocan has done better than usual
in  h.de  gnld,  having increased  In $4092. eir about  double
the 1910 record
The coasl district shows a lerioul falling off in lode
gnld production, the amount feir 1912 being only $51,613, as
against $120,190 inr 1911; $115,111 for 1910, and $131,461
fnr 1909.
It will surprise many people to learn that Vancouver
il the centre of a district producing thc greatest mineral
wealth in British Columbia. In 1912, $12,000,000 in mineral
wealth was taken oul of the coasl district contiguous to
Vancouver.
British Columbia may be described as a vast treasure
chest, tbe lid of which has yet to be thrown open. Fifty
years ago, ten millions in gold dust was taken from the
earth in Card , in the Barkcrvillc tlistrict. In this district there are yet millions to be taken out, and it may bc
reached in a motor car. Though there is no e.fiicial record available. Cariboo is said t.e have produced more
than $200,000,000 in placer gold.
during the past bad been illegal and that hundreds e,i
thousands of el, .liars of the public monies had been spent
in a -aturnalian orgy.
li ci st South Vancouver $20,000 in cash, did this investigate n This $20,000 was paid on the eve of the money
stringency.
What tin the people of S"iith Vancouver get fe.r
$30,000?
Commiisioner Crehan, no doubt, did his we.rk well
earned every cent of the fee paid him.
That is not the point, however. The situation is this���
that the people of South Vancouver gave up $20,000 ami
have ne.I  received anything fnr it.
It i- true thai a few paragraphs appeared in the Vancouver papers tei the effect that Commissioner Crehan
had made his report tee the Provincial Government and
that he recommended certain changes in the methods of
keeping municipal accounts, and had found certain irregularities in the records of the municipality. The report
made by the Commissioner to the Government has never
been made public, however. So the ratepayers of South
Vancouver arc as well off today as they wcre in respect
to an exact knowledge of what has been geiing on in tjie
administration of the tlistrict two years ago.
Possibly it is the intentions of the Government to make
the report of Commissioner Creban public at some later
date. Now is the time tbat thc people should have that
report, and not a iew years hence when the circumstances
will have been forgotten, and the boodlcrs���if there have

THE BOARD OF SCHOOL TRUSTEES
THAN during the year 1913 it is apparent that never
have the public schools of South Vancouver been more
wisely administered, and never have the pupils from these
���chooll made better showings. In the record set by thc
gentlemen of the Board of School Trustees during the
present regime, the dark spots in the past history of the
board are being atoned for.
There was a time in the earlier days of South Vancouver's Board of School Trustees when the purchase of supplies and building sites and the awarding of contracts were
controlled by certain sinister influences. In those days
printing and stationery firms departed from their usual
course to go temporarily into the wholesale drug business
for the benefit of the South /ancouver schools department, and representatives of thos. firms occasionally constituted themselves as clearing houses for the taking care
of certain big school cheques, the ink upon which must
be kept from the light of day. And to find all this out
cost the public many thousands of dollars.
Ratepayers of South Vancouver might well compliment
themselves upon their selection of the present administrators of school affairs in the municipality. The members
have shown a tendency to get away irom former influences, anil to apply their efforts to the conservation oi
monies entrusted to their keeping, and to set a worthy
example to thc four thousand young citizens who attend
the public schools of the municipality.
SCATTERING OF WASTE PAPER
ILLS, dodgers and leaflets bearing the statements of
insane agitators have been widely circulated throughout the municipality during the past few weeks, and it is
a remarkable fact the proper municipal authorities do not
invoke the law governing such nuisances.
In many instances the statements printed are of a trashy
character. One man makes an attack on the reeve, another goes after the superintendent of the water supply,
and it seems that every individual who has a hobby or
imagined grievance in South Vancouver may print bis
ideas upon handbills and circulate them by the thousands.
Religious organizations in some cases also resort to the
same methods, flooding the district with their literature.
Recently some of the Mormon brethren circulated Cedar
Cottage in this manner, and from time to time other radical
denominations resort to the same practice.
No effort is ever made by the South Vancouver police
to control the circulation of printed matter throughout
thc municipality. The British Columbia F.lectric Railway
Company allow their property to be used as bill boards
upon which pamphlets, circulars and dodgers may be
pasted for the "edification" of the public, A certain type
of business man allows the agitators to post their literature
in his shop windows.
It is possible that no other incorporated district in
Canada is as lax as South Vancouver in respect to this
matter. The community is defaced by this promiscous
sc.-.ttering of waste paper and harmed by the wild statements circulated in this way. If for no other purpose
than to try to make the municipality more sightly, thc
council would protect the interests of the people by
awakening to the harmfulncss of the practice.

THE WAGGING TONGUE OF THOMAS
MEN  Councillor Thomas  rushed to the newspapers
divulge the nature of certain delicate financial
arrangements the council of the municipality were endeavoring to negotiate with tbe Bank of Montreal, he
committed an unpardonable breach of etiquette. The
deal that was being put through with the hank was perfectly regular in every respect, and the council wcre acting upon the best advice in thc matter. Councillor Thomas
had nothing to gain in rushing into print with the matter
save a little bit of notoriety. Afterwards, when brought
to task for his indiscretion, the old gentleman stated that
he must at all times take the ratepayers intei his confidence
on these matters. This was a sensible explanation, Apparently Councillor Thomas believes that a committee of
ratepayers should accompany the council on all municipal business to guide and direct them.
One of the qualifications a man should have before being
allowed into any administrative body is a basic knowledge eif business, [t doesn't seem right that a man should
be given a hand in spending hundreds of thousands of
dollars of the peoples' money if be hasn't brains enough
to put threengh a deal fnr a dozen of eggs.

WHERE'S THE AUDITOR'S REPORT ?
I T will be remembered that over a year ago, Mr., M. J.
Crehan, one of the leading expert accountants and
municipal auditors in Western Canada, was appointed by
the Provincial Government to conduct a thorough and
searching investigation into municipal affairs in the municipality of the District of South Vancouver.
Mr. Crehan was given all the powers of a Supreme Court
Judge, was made a Royal Commissioner, and in the prosecution of his enquiry every assistance was given him,
and the work took up the greater part of a year.
All the records of the municipality since South Vancouver was first incorporated as such were gone into
with care and the Commissioner conducted for
weeks a daily, public court of enquiry.
At the time Commissioner Crehan was appointed, charges and counter charges were in the air, and the reputations of a great number of men previously identified
with public life in South Vancouver were freely attacked.
"Graft" was the word on the lips of every ratepayer, and
it was confidently expected that the alleged swindlers
would be found out by the Government Auditor.
Open  charges were made that transactions of councils
Trade- Congress to the British Trades Congress, meeting in Manchester in September, has much more than a
personal significance, and. as a mater of fact, is directly
significant of a new era iu the history 'if Canadian labor.
It is the first time thai Canadian labor has been thus represented, and therefore marks a fuller recognition ol tlu
trade-union  movement  In  Canada  by  Hritish  unionists
The  typ..graphical union, by the selection of  Mr.  Draper.
is highly honored.   He has long been active in Canadian
labor affairs, and at the present time is president of Ottawa
Typographical I'liimi N'o. 102.    The Citizen also says:
Already Canada is bound by strong labor union ties
to the L'nited States. As the Citizen stated a few weeks
ago, the majority of trade unionists in Canada arc allied
tei the American Federation nf Labor. Thc bond of labor
on this continent is international, and finds small hindrance at the boundary line. National differences are forgotten in the common struggle oi the workers to achieve
larger rights. It is therefore most fitting tbat the bond
between Canadian and British labor be developed to the
Utmosti and it is expected that much good may come of
Mr. Draper's fraternal visit to the British unions. There
is much to learn from them which will help the Canadian
movement. The working men of Great Britain have made
strong strides in the past few years, waking to a consciousness of their larger power and responsibility. If
something meere of their sturdy spirit can be infused into
Canadian working men. it will add much to the cause of
labor here.

AUSTRALIA AND LAURIER AGREE
AT a dinner at the National Institute at Sidney, Australia, on May 23rd last, Premier Fisher declared that
���"The Australian division of the Imperial Navy, owned,
manned and controlled by tbe Australians, would be available to fight on behalf of the Empire not only in Australian but in other seas."
Following out this idea, Australia has now almost completed a fleet unit of powerful war vessels, owned, partly
manned, and altogether controlled by Australians, ready-
to fight for the Empire wherever it may be menaced.
That is the plan formulated for Canada by Sir Wilfrid
Laurier in 1910. Had Laurier been left to complete his
work, by this time Canada would have a number of war
vessels  on  both  the  Atlantic  and   Pacific  coasts,  which
Wild and Woolly Toronto
Toronto "Globe"
Toronto's Assistant Deputy Chief, ejecting from the box
a witness whose testimony he did not like, is too wild and
woolly for any city with a claim to being civilized or with

dignified they can at least make an effort toward common
decency.

Down with the Tariff
Toronto "Globe"
Industrial Canada advises moderation em the part of
tariff beneficiaries If the Liberals can prevent the tariff
from being made materially worse during the present
regime they will do all they can reasonably hope for.
They went out of office trying to make it better. If the
manufacturers help the Liberals in averting excesses they
will be promoting their own best interests.

No Aid for the West
Moose Jaw "Times"
Financial stringencies occurred even during the prospering Liberal times, bul the Government acted so
promptly that they never became acute. Even at this late
stage any Federal Government if composed of far-sighted
men could materially help us. The Borden governmenl
does n.'thing. It gives away city lands worth $350,000 to
heelers for a $1(1 bill. It hands over milMons of the peoples'
cash to Mackenzie & Mann, it lends more millions to the
(',. T. P., but it docs nothing for the people of the west.

Municipal Rights
Ottawa "Citizen"
The enlargement of municipality rights under the new
consolidated railway act of Canada is decidedly in the
right direction. It is very easy to overdo the matter of
Federal or Provincial control over municipalities, While
it is proper and necessary to exercise general supervision
over the whole, the rights of the part should be fully guaranteed. By the act referred to greater authority is given
to the municipality and greater power to cope with the
private companies that only too often profess to serve
when they really are masters.

An Impossible Feat

No New Proposal
Victoria "Times"
The Canadian people, if they can prevent it, will not permit their Government to adopt a permanent contribution
policy, no matter how urgently Mr. Churchill or the Admiralty may press for it. This is no new propresition.
Joseph Chamberlain and his predecessors in the Colonial
Office repeatedly urged Canadian statesmen to adopt the
principle of cash contributions fnr military purposes, and
at one time Sir Charles Tupper on behalf of Canada, was.
the only overseas statesman who resisted the pressure.
In 1902 Mr. Chamberlain urged the same thing upon Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, who declined lei entertain it. Control
eever our expenditure must always remain the exclusive
prerogative of the Canadian Parliament.

FRASER  RIVER  FISHING  FLEET  AT  ANCHOR
Ami it docs seem wonderful that four

water) in which it was born antl that
'lining the four years absolutely no

hem  found,    At the end of the  fuiir-
year term, however, now full grown,
unerringly guided by instinct, the lish
returns to liis native waters, there to
spawn and then t.i die. They hear
nf the salmon cycles according tu
which   1913  is  the  year  ill  which  the
salmon "run" is exceptionally large,
the "run" growing annually less and
less during the next three years until
lhe cycle is complete, and iu 1917
there will be another "big Salmon
run."
Where the Salmon is Shipped
Fresh salmon in the mother country ranges in price from cightcenpencc
t" two shillings and sixpence a pound.
This prohibitive price puts it Without
the range e.f lhe bulk of the working
people, and were it not for the "tin,"
which sells for sixpence or seven-
pence the pound, the privilege of
making  a   meal   of   this   delicious  fish
would be almost impossible.

REAPING SCENE ON  LULU  ISLAND
"Familiarity breeds contempt"
The old saying "familiarity breeds
contempt" is perhaps truer in this
instance than in any other. How
many residents of this province have
partaken of the unexcelled opportunity lying at their own door to see
with their own eyes the process by
which the fish is caught or trapped
and by various clever devices is packed ready for shipment by sea or rail
to the uttermost corners of the earth.
The "Sockeye" Trip
With an appetite whetted during
the week with the enormous catches
the fishermen were making, I resolved to make a trip down to Steveston and see and learn at close hand
the story of the sockeye and the
fishing and cannery men.
How to get there was a problem
easy of 'olution for the B.C. Electric
Railway, always eager to give the rcsi-
eif expectancy to see and take in everything that was to be seen. The
lirst object of interest was when we
put into the cannery at Deas Island
to laud sonic freight. Here were
to be seen two barge loads of salmon,
the fishermen with long, steel-pointed poles busy throwing them onto
the floor of the cannery. Leaving
there we resumed our course down
the river and the waterway all the
road down bore a very visible trace
of the plcntifulness of the fish.
Thousands of dead sockeyes were to
be observed, floating on the t^p of
the water. The canners will only take
2(10 from each boat and the fishermen,
having no other means of disposal of
the surplus, have perforce to dump
them overboard. Even the oil factory
will not take them, they having more
on their hands than they know what
to do with. This seems to be a case
where the government could step in
and provide some means of disposing
long building could be seen with big
smokestacks, The run in was ihe
signal for handkerchiefs being held to
the nose tier the smell wasn't lavender. It turned imt tei he a factory feer
making oil. The stench was caused
by a couple of oargelnails eel heads,
tails   and   entrails   ,.f   tlie   ..nee   proud

with the necessity uf continuous
dredging   at   the   Satldheads.
A Trip through a Cannery
We got uff the steamer and rallied
round our guide, who took up his
Stand em an empty lishhnx and enlightened us as tn how to get to the
tram terminus after he had conducted
us through one of the canneries.
Wc made quite a crowd as wc
wended our way along one of thc
streets. Siwashes and their klootch-
men, Japs and Chinks were all "taken
up," am! betokened their curiosity at
seeing so many visitors all at once.
The guide led us into one of the main
canneries and for the next half-hour
was busy explaining all the operations through which the sockeye passes   from   the   minute   he   leaves   his
double-car train was soon comfortably tilled with some of the horse-
racing people who had been having
an afternoon's spurt.
On we went, thc scenery on the
road keeping our noses glued up
against the window all thc time���
through Eburne. past Shaughnessy
Heights, and finally landing in Vancouver at 7.30.
Thus ended one of the finest afternoons I have spent. Combined with
the recreation, the knowledge and education gained on his trip will be
a lasting memory whenever the "tin"
is produced on the table and the
opener inserted.
Exigencies of space will not permit of fuller details, but I would advise all readers of this article to lose

lu say  I  will nut listen because I am

will nut sing because wc do not like

formation of the abandoned Citizens'
Reform League, which is to bc resuscitated.
What I want to know is by what
authority does Mr. Rayner take it
upon himself lo over-ride the decisions arrived at by duly called public
meetings each time such decision
does not fully accord with his own
schemes? Also by what authority
does he pay accounts with money
publicly subscribed, and simply present a statement of accounts afterwards? Is it not the usual practice
for public bodies first to authorize
payment  of accounts?
Apparently Mr. Rayner is a law
unto himself in such matters. Money
is tirst of all paid into the funds of
the South Vancouver Citizens' League. Because Mr. Rayner was not
appointed at a salary to solicit further subscriptions he severed his con-
nectie.n with the league, refused to
hand over the money and list of
members, and set about to form another league. This time Mr. Rayner.
presumably to make sure of a paid
position being available, persuades a
number of ratepayers to sign a document authorizing the registration of
a chartered body under the title
South Vancouver Citizens' Reform
League, with, it is said, a clause in
the charter providing for a paid secretary at about $15 a week. Then a
public meeting is called for the purpose of amalgamating the two leagues. Mr. Rayner is requested to
hand over the money belonging to
the first formed league and all he
hands in is a statement of account
showing that all the money ban been
expended with the exception of about
one dollar. Who authorized the expenditure, seeing nn properly constituted meeting of the league had
been held? However, the statement
was accepted and the meeting decided
lhat the two leagues be amalgamated.
Mr. Rayner was appointed secretary
pre. tern  nf thc new league.
Sn far all all has gone as Mr. Ray-
un wished; but when Ihe litle nf
the new league was decided, practically unanimously, as the South Vancuuver Vnlcrs' League the fat was in
thc lire and Mr. Rayner began to
scream, but was firmly suppressed,
Only for the moment, however, and
he now announces in the press that
thc V'nicrs' League is tn bc squashed and the Reform League resuscitated with its paid secretary charter,
of ceiursc. What have the ratepayers
tei   say  about   Mr.   Rayner's   actions?
Tn the Editor nf the "Chinook" :
Sir,'���Can ynu explain the following announcement made in the daily
papers by Mr. Charles Rayner? :
"Thc South Vancouver Citizens' Reform League announces that the pro-
pi ised meeting of the South Vancouver Voters' League will not take
place im Wednesday, August 6, but
thai a meeting of the Smith Vancouver Citizens' Reform League will be
announced  later."
The reason I ask for an explanation
is because at a meeting held a week
ag'), when .15 members of the Reform
League were present, a majority of
the members agreed to abandon the
title Reform League and to join with
the Citizens' League under the new
name nf the South Vancuuver Voters'
League. It is true Mr. Rayner tried
tee pn et est against the new name, but
was I'del very plainly that if he could
nut fall in with the wishes nf the majority he had better clear out and
make way fur thnse who would work
disinterestedly for the common good.
.Apparently Mr. Rayner has no intention tn clear out, but has decided
thai the Voters' League must go to
the   wall   and   make   way   fur   llle   re-
Is the man who persistently refuses
to accept the decisions of the majority as final a suitable man to run any
organization of ratepayers? Will not
splits and strife among thc members
he likely to constitute the chief "business" of any organization with which
Mr. Rayner is associated, if the wishes of the majority do not accord with
his ideas? Did not Mrs. Kalenberg
and Mrs. Cook size thc man up correctly when they described him as
"a great big baby" and his actions
as "childish?" What self-respecting
man can support any league with
which Mr. Rayner is associated?
What is he after anyway? The good
of the ratepayers or a paid position
as  secretary?

Lawyers at Bat
Major league scouts missed the opportunity uf iheir young lives thi-
vveek to rirab tome talent that would
undoubtedly make Honus Wagner
and Tyrus Cobb hack numbers in the
big tent. Heiier looking, faster ball
teessers were never seen than the
"legal liKhis" uf Vancouver and Seattle, who paraded for inspection at
the Fifth Avenue enclosure this week
on the occasion uf the annual inler-
national argument. For seven long
innings, innings thai were mure like
heiiirs   tn   sume   of   the   veteran   legal
ball tossers, the argument continued,
and then someone suggested that the
case be continued over until the 1914 j
term. Eighteen legal ball toisers concurred along with the bat boy and
the overworked scorer, and the festivities came to an abrupt conclusion
with the Seattle folks on the tup-
heavy end of a 7-1 score. With the
case already appealed, argument will
take place in Dug's enclosure. Seattle,

Vancouver
Once upe'ii a time a Lad with Cinnamon Hair and wide blue Eyei lived
in a half-portion Town.
He had received more thn 20tXJ
j tickets teer answering "IKre" at the
M. E. Sunday Scli.ee,1.
Hit kinie.lk hoped that some day lie
would be President of the Town
Board.
Shortly niter he had learned tei roll
;i safe game 'if Pool, liis Governor
demised.
Robert, such being the polite Hon-
nicker   of   the   s.ele   heir,   found   that
I he cuuld nut spread liis Pini'eiis in tlie
narrow Streets eef the lichen-covered
Hamlet.
Se, he blew. He went tee find an
Avenue thai would acComdate seven
I Zeppelin Air-Ships moving abreast
at  one time.
He closed out the Dry Goods Em-
I porium with the Shirt-WaUtt and
; the shameless Hosiery in the Windows^
An Apartment Building, with Tack-
ages delivered at the rear, soon began to flaunt itself on the site of the
old Manse.
With all the currency corralled by
the late Store-Keeper padded into his
Norfolk Jacket, the gallus Offspring
hurried to the Metrop to pick the
Primroses.
In a short time he was out at the
Track every day, barking at the Goats
as they hove into thc Stretch.
The pencil4>orrowing Touts and
the Wine-Pushers began to call him
Bob, which proved that he was a
Man about Town.
When the final Kiflukes was put on
the Ponies, he assembled the residue
of his Bundle and began to work
steady as a Guesser in a Broker's
Office.
His job was to show at 10 G.M.
with a big Rcina Victoria at one extreme corner of his Face and pretend to know what was coming off
when thc Boy put the funny marks
on the Blackboard.
Ever and anon he would buy 100(1
Shares of something, as if Negotiating for a Bread Ticket.
As a rule, the tall-grass Plunger
with a wad of new Kale has about the
same percentage in his favor as that
enjoyed by a Shoat out at the well-
known Establishment of Armour &
Co.
The Cleaners go forth to meet him,
bearing as Gifts a Dream-Book and
a new kind of Cocktail with a Kick
like a Coast-Defence Gun.
A few weeks later they arc casting
lots  for his Union   Suit.
Bob came from Simpville, but he
had acuired a couple of Wrinkles associating with the Wing Shots in thc
Paddock.
He could shift to either Foot and
he kept his Maxillary covered.
Sometimes lie picked up the wrong
Walnut. It would begin te, look like
a quick change from Caviar to Crackers.
More than once his Heels were
beating a tattoo on the grassy brink
of a Precipice.
Then he would smell around until
he discovered Something Doing. A
couple of lucky Shots and he would
be on the Plush again and whanging
away like a Demon.
At last, with a Bull Market and a
system of Pyramids, he began to
sweep it in with his Fore-Arm.
Head Waiters paid him the most
groveling Attentions and bright eyes
grew brighter yet when he suggested
nulling a little Supper, with a $400
Souvenir at each  Plate.
He was admitted to full membership in the Tango Tribe of the Ten-
derlion  Night-Riders.
This select Coterie was organized
for the purpose of closing all Cabarets by 6 a. ni.
An early hour was named because
many of them were not made up for
the  cold Daylight.
About the time he began to discover Vintages he discovered Elphye.
also.
She was an Actress who was too
busy to perform  on  tbe  Stage.
Elphye had a good Social Position
back at her Home, but for some
reason, she never sent on for it.
Her Parents had arrangeel feer her
to bc a Brunette, but when Be,b met
her. between the Guinea Hen and the
Cafe Parfait, she was a Lemon Meringue.
Elphye wore Clothes that made a
noise  like  a   Piccolo.
She was there with the jeweled
Heels  and  the  band-painted  Ankles.
In trying to make her gowns anywhere from six to nine months ahead j
of  Paris,  she  sprung  several  Effects
that caused the Chandelier to tremble
and  the  Ice  to  melt  in  the  Buckets.
She had abolished hcr Shape entirely and abandoned the Perpendicular, preferring a Droop which indicated that possibly she had been fashioned  over a Barrel.
She tried to model herself on the
lines of a string Bean, slightly warped
by the Sun.
The Ascending Star of the Financial World was stunned by the Apparition.
No one had tinned it off to him that
the Queen of Sheba was to be reincarnated.
He found Elphye ever and ever so
accomplished.
She knew all the Songl that now
blister the Varnish off the Pianos in
so many well-ordered Homes.
She was enough of a Contortionist
to get away with several Dances
named for the innocent Poultry.
Being a close student of the Bill-
Boards, she was in touch with Current Happenings.
Her Eye-Work was perfect but she
found it bad pumping to Blush at the
right time.
When she tackled Polite Conversation she put a few Tooth-Marks in
it. Still she made a very creditable
Stab for a Girl brought up in Michigan and never east of Sheepshead
Bay.
She looked very creamy  tei  Bob, if
the Music was loud enough.
lie  liked  to  tow   something   that
would cause the Oyster Feirks tee
pause in mid-air and thc Catty ' >nes
to reach  feer  their  Hardware.
When Elphye eliel a little Barnum
and Bailey down the main Chute eef
a Terrapin Bazaar, rest assured that
every Eye in the Resort was aimed
at her gleaming Vertebra'.
Bob showed her his monthly Statements and she confessed t" being
very fond of him, So it was planned
that they would Marry some afternoon, if she could get away from 11n-
Masseuse   early   enough.
The Troth was pledged in a few
high-priced Trinkets which she had
decided upon before he spoke to her.
Jusl when it seemed a mortal Pipe
that   the   Bull   Tactics   would   enable
him to cop a Million, se, that he could
live at a lleetel and finance the Little
Queen, the Unseen Superintendent
in the Teiwer began to throw the
Switches  of  Destiny.
If Bob had not speeded so far into
the Country in the new Smell-Wagon,
there would have been no  Blow-Out.
If there had been no Blow-Out. he
would have been back in time for the
usual roundup of the Irrigation Ciem-
mittee and never would have been a
Great  Financier.
Marooned among the Hay-Fields,
he stopped at a Farm House and took
a long chance on some Well-Water,
dipped in a Gourd from the Moss-
Covered  Bucket.
Scotch Whiskey is never contaminated by Surface Drains, but each
sparkling Drop of the Fluid that Bob
quaffed, there beneath the Willows,
contained more than 2,000,000 of the
Germs made notorious by Dr. Woods
Hutchinson.
A few days later a swarm of Bees
settled in each ear. Every Sky-Scraper gave an imitation of the Leaning
Tower of Pisa.
He knew hc was out of Kelter, but
he had to watch the Board, for he
had put every Bean in the World on
an acrobatic Industrial know as Tin
Bucket   Preferred.
Already the Paper Profits were
enormous. Bob figured confidently
on another string of Pearls for
Elphye.
But when the poor Loon had a
Temperature of 5 above Par and had
to cling to the Brass Rail tei keep
from taking the Count, he lost his
heart.
He couldn't see anything on the
Horizon except Tariff Revision, Hard
Times, Weeping Women, Starving
Kiddies, Clused Factories, Soup
Kitchens and  Bread Lines.
While in this dotty Stale and quite
irresponsible, he directed the Manager to close out the whole Smear
and sell  short.
Furthermore, he was so daffy and
curdled in the Filbert that he sold
three times as much as he had.
Then he did a couple of Spins and
a Flop, and the White Ambulance
bore him away to the big Hospital.
If Mr. Horning Jackson of Round
Grove, Maryland, bad not entered
upon his Second Childhood at the age
of 55, his Family would have remained on   Easy  Street.
Mr. Jackson thought he could sit
in his Front Room and read the burglarious Meditations of the High-Binders  in   Wall   Street.
Consequently, when the Tin Box
was searched, the Day after the Masons had marched out to the Cemetery,
it contained a little of everything except  Assets.
Annie was the name of the Daughter.
On the Clean-up she received
enough to put her through the School.
When Bob arrived at the Hospital,
in a State of Conflagration, Annie was
waiting in the starched Uniform to
tackle  her  first  real  Case.
For days and nights he rambled
through the ghostly labyrinths of
Delirium. Annie bedding him by the
Hand and lifting the cool Draughts
to his parched Lips.
He mumbled and raved about the
decisions eif the Umpire in Ihe game
between the Academy and thc Knitting Works.
He gave Annie his entire performance of Ralph Raekstraw in "Pinafore" fore the benefit of the Library
Fund, including Cues.
He scolded his Aunt Mary fur deling hcr Housework and told the
Colored Men how to lay the Cement
Walk down through the Grape Arbor.
He promised his Father not to play
Poker any more and vowed to his
Mother that she was a better Chef
than the one up at Del's.
But his sub-conscious Self was su
considerate of Elphye that he never
brought ber Name at all, at all.
Sometimes he would get baek t.e
the Ticker, but he was ready to leave
it any time to go fishing in the Crick
with tbe Rats from the other side
of the Tracks.
Through the final Crisis he played
tag with the Grim Reaper and just
escaped being It.
The Sun was slanting into the little
white Room when he crawled feebly
back to Earth and tried to get his
Bearings.
Annie was looking right at him,
relieved and smiling and happy. She
had won the first game in the Big
League.
He noticed that she was not slashed up the side or down the back, had
no metallic Insteps, carried her own
Hair, and was in no way concealed
behind .the usual pallid Veneering.
He remembered dimly that she had
been  with him on  the Underground.
Then he recalled a previous Existence in which the Dripped Absinthe was a Breakfast and the Cigarette, Luncheon and Elphye was Trotting in her Glads and he had a Swell
Bet down in Tin Bucket Preferred.
The whole Lay-Out seemed unreal
onl remote anel entirely disconnected
.villi   Frit-iiel   Kline.
I le inquired lhe- Day of the- Week.
un! v h. n he' learned it was Next

Annie quietly spread him back on

time anel crazy as a Cubist.
Annie saiil it was wrung tu Gamble
anel be was met In read the Papers or
fu-- with Visitors until Due gave the
wi ird.
Suddenly he remembered that he
was engaged tn Elphye and he wem-
dercd if she had forgotten.
Sn many things can happen in a
Great  City  within   two  weeks.
Il,' told the Nurse  about  Elphye.
Annie dill neet seem madly interested,
but she wreete a Note to the Sazer-
ack Apartment Building and notified
lhe Seraphine that her prospective
Producer was still extant and would
bc willing te'e renew acquaintance if
she cnuld spare an hour or two from
her   Dancing.
Elphye came e>ut two days later
made up as a Princess in the Christmas Pantomime and diffusing pleasant  Odors  in  all  directions.
She sat down along side nf Annie
and immediately she was shown up
and went back to tbe Minors.
Her Second-Reader Conversation,
complicated with the phoney Boston
sound of "A" as in "Squash," did not
improve ber average General Average.
Bob suddenly realized in getting
rid of the Bronxes and the Nicotine
and various other Toxins, he also had
lost his appetite for Elphye.
But he was Game and willing to
go  through  on  his  own   Proposition.
lie sent Nurse for a glass of Water
and then begged his Fiancee tn smuggle in a Newspaper so he could find
eiut tbe name of his next gctting-off
Station.
Next day she brought a Market
Page in her wonderful jewel-crusted
Bag.
Bub took eme Look and crawled
under the  Covers.
The Market had gone Blooey.
Bucket Preferred was down in the
Subway, bleeding from a dozen
Wounds.
The Whole List was on the Blink-
ety Fritz.
"Courage, Dearie." said Bob, taking
Elphye by the Rings. "Your little
Playmate   is   erased   from   the   map."
Elphye upset two Rolling Chairs
and one  Interne to the Open Air.
Annie found the poor Bankrupt
much improved as to Pulse and Temperature.

lie closed out the Dry Goods I-.m-
I porittm with the Shirt-Waists ami
I the shameless Hosiery in the Win-
! dows.
An Apartment Building, with Packages delivered at the rear, soon began to flaunt itself on tbe site of the
eeld   Manse.
With all the currency corralled by
the late Store-Keeper padded into his
Xorfedk Jacket, the gallus Offspring
hurried to the Metrop to pick the
Primroses.
In a short time he was out at the
Track every day, barking at the Goats
as they hove into the Stretch.
The penciMiorrowing Touts and
the Wine-Pusher? began to call him
Bob, which proved that he was a
Man about Town.
When the final Kiflukes was put on
the Ponies, he assembled the residue
of his Bundle and began to weirk
steady as a Guesser in a Broker's
Office.
His job was to show at 10 CM.
with a big Reina Victoria at one extreme comer of his Face and pretend to know what was coming off
when the Boy put the funny marks
on the  Blackboard.
Ever and anon he would buy 1000
Shares of something, as if Negotiating for a Bread Ticket.
As a rule, the tall-grass Plunger
with a wad of new Kale has about the
same percentage in his favor as that
enjoyed by a Shoat out at the well-
known Establishment of Armour &
Co.
The Cleaners go forth to meet him,
hearing as Gifts a Dream-Book and
a new kind of Cocktail with a Kick-
like a Coast-Defence Gun.
A few weeks later they are casting
lots  for  his  Union  Suit.
Bob came from Simpville, but he
had acuired a couple of Wrinkles associating with the Wing Shots in the
Paddock.
He could shift to either Foot and
he kept his Maxillary covered.
Sometimes he picked up the wrong
Walnut. It would begin to look like
a quick change from Caviar to Crackers.
More than once his Heels were
heating a tattoo on the grassy brink
of a Precipice.
Then he would smell around until
he discovered Something Doing. A
couple of lucky Sheets and he would
be on the Plush again and whanging
away like a Demon.
At last, with a Bull Market and a
system of Pyramids, he began to
sweep it in with his Fore-Arm.
Head Waiters paid him the most
groveling Attentions and bright eyes
grew brighter yet when he suggested
'Hilling a little Supper, with a $400
Souvenir at each  Plate.
He  was  admitted  to  full  member-1
ship in the Tango Tribe of the Ten-
derlion  Night-Riders.
This select Coterie was organized
for the purpose of closing all Cabarets by 6 a. m.
An early hour was named because
many of them were not made up for
the cold Daylight.
About the time hc began to discover Vintages he discovered Elphye.
also.
She was an Actress who was too
busy to perform on  thc Stage.
Elphye had a good Social Position
back at her Home, hut for some
reason, she never sent on for it.
Her Parents had arranged feir her
to hc a Brunette, but when Bob met
her. between the Guinea Hen and the
Cafe Parfait. she was a Lemon Meringue.
Elphye wore Clothes that made a
noise like a  Piccolo.
She was there with the jeweled
Heels   and   the   hand-painted   Ankles.
In trying to make ber gowns anywhere from six to nine months ahead
of Paris, she sprung several Effects
that caused the Chandelier to tremble
and  the  lec  to melt  in  the  Buckets.
She had abolished her Shape entirely and abandoned the Perpendicular, preferring a Droop which indicated that possibly she had been fashioned  over  a  Barrel.
She tried to model herself on tbe
lines of a string Bean, slightly warped
by the Sun.
The Ascending Star of the Financial World was stunned by the Apparition.
No one had tinned it off to him that
the Queen of Sheba was to be reincarnated.
He found Elphye ever and ever so
accomplished.
She knew all the Songf that now
blister the Varnish off the Pianos in
so many well-ordered Homes.
She was enough of a Contortionist
to get away with several Dances
named for the innocent Poultry.
Being a close student of the Bill-
Boards, she was in touch with Current Happenings.
Her Eye-Work was perfect but she
found it bad pumping to Blush at the
right time.
When she tackled Polite Conversation she put a few Tooth-Marks in
it. Still she made a very creditable
Stab for a Girl brought up in Michigan and never east of Sheepshead
Bay.
She luieked very creamy  ne  Ite.1,, if
tin- Music was loud enough
He  liked  tu  tow   something  that
Would cause the (lysler Forks tee

to  reach   fur   their   Hardware.
When Elphye iliel a little Barnum
and Bailey down the main Chute eef
a Terrapin Bazaar, rest assured that
every Eye in tin- Resort was aimed
at lur gleaming Vertebra,
Bob sinewed her his monthly Statements ami sin- confessed i" being
very fond 'ef him. See it was planned
that they would Marry lome after*
noon, if she could get away from the
Masseuse   early   em .ugh.
The Troth was pledged in a few
high-priced Trinkets which she had
elecieleel upon before he speike In her.
Just when it seemed a mortal Pipe
that the Bull Tactics would enable
him to ceep a Million, see that he could
live at a Hotel and finance the Little
Queen, the Unseen Superintendent
in the Tower began to throw the
Switches  of  Destiny.
If Bob had neit speeded so far into
the Country in the new Smell-Wagon,
there would have been no Blow-Out.
If there had been no Blow-Out. he
would have been back in time for the
usual roundup of the Irrigation Ceimmittee and never would have been a
Great Financier,
Marooned among the Hay-Fields,
he stopped at a Farm House and took
a long chance on some Well-Water,
dipped in a Gourd from the Muss-
Covered  Bucket.
Scotch Whiskey is never contaminated by Surface Drains, but each
sparkling Drop of thc Fluid that Bob
quaffed, there beneath the Willows,
contained more than 2,000,000 of the
Germs made notorious by Dr. Woods
Hutchinson.
A few days later a swarm of Bees
settled in each ear. Every Sky-Scraper gave an imitation of the Leaning
Tower of Pisa.
He knew hc was out of Keltcr, but
he had to watch the Board, for he
had put every Bean in the World on
an acrobatic Industrial know as Tin
Bucket   Preferred.
Already the Paper Profits were
enormous. Bob figured confidently
on another string nf Pearls fur
Elphye.
But when the poor Luun had a
Temperature of 5 above Par and had
to cling to thc Brass Rail to keep
from taking the Count, he lost his
heart.
He couldn't see anything on the
Horizon except Tariff Revision, Hard
Times, Weeping Women, Starving
Kiddies, Closed Factories, Soup
Kitchens and Bread Lines.
While in this dotty State and quite
irresponsible, he directed the Manager to close out the whole Smear
and sell short.
Furthermore, he was so daffy and
curdled in the Filbert that he sold
three times as much as he had.
Then he did a couple of Spins and
a Flop, and the White Ambulance
bore him away to the big Hospital.
If Mr. Meirning Jackson of Round
Grove, Maryland, had not entered
upon his Second Childhood at the age
of 55, his Family would have remained on  Easy  Street.
Mr. Jackson thought be could sit
in his Front Room and read the burglarious Meditations of the High-Binders  in   Wall   Street.
Consequently, when the Tin Box
was searched, the Day after the Masons had marched out tei the Cemetery,
it contained a little of everything except  Assets.
Annie was the name of the Daughter.
On the Clean-up she received
enough to put her through the School.
When Bob arrived at the Hospital,
in a State of Conflagration, Annie was
waiting in the starched Uniform te.
tackle  her  first  real  Case.
For days and nights hc rambled
through the ghostly labyrinths of
Delirium. Annie holding him by the
Hand and lifting the cool Draughts
to his parched Lips.
He mumbled and raved about the
decisions of the Umpire in the game
between the Academy and thc Knit-
ting Works,
lie gave Annie his entire perf.ir-
mance of Ralph Rackstraw In "Pinafore" fore thc benefit of the Library
Fund, including Cues.
Hc scolded his Aunt Mary for (being her Housework and told the
Colored Men how to lay thc Cement
Walk down through the Grape Arbor.
Hc promised his Father not to play
Poker any more and vowed to his
Mother that she was a better Chef
than the one up at Del's.
But his sub-conscious Self was so
considerate of Elphye that he never
brought her Name at all, at all.
Sometimes he would get back to
the Ticker, but he was ready to leave
it any time to go fishing in the Crick
with the Rats from thc other side
of the Tracks.
Through the final Crisis hc played
tag with the Grim Reaper and just
escaped being It.
The Sun was slanting into thc little
white Room when he crawled feebly
back to Earth and tried to get his
Bearings.
Annie was looking right at him,
relieved and smiling and happy. She
had won the first game in the Big
League.
He noticed that she was not slashed up the side or down the back, had
no metallic Insteps, carried her own
Hair, and was in no way concealed
behind.the usual pallid Veneering.
He remembered dimly that she had
been  with him on the Underground.
Then he recalled a previous Existence in which the Dripped Absinthe was a Breakfast and the Cigarette, Luncheon and Elphye was Trotting in her Glads and he had a Swell
Bet down in Tin Bucket Preferred.
The whole Lay-Out seemed unreal

but   she   wrote  a   Note   lo   the   Sazer-
ack Apartment Building and notified
the   Seraphine  that  her  prospective
Producer was still extant and would
be willing to renew acquaintance if
she ceiuld spare an hour or two from
her   Dancing.
Elphye came out two days later
made up as a Princess in thc Christmas Pantomime and diffusing pleasant  Odors  in  all  directions.
She sat down along side of Annie
and immediately she was shown up
and went back to the Minors.
Her Second-Reader Convcrsatiejn,
complicated with the phoney Boston
sound of "A" as in "Squash." did not
improve hcr average General Average.
Bob suddenly realized in getting
rid of the Bronxes and the Nicotine
and various other Toxins, he also had
lost his appetite for Elphye.
But he was Game and willing to
go  through on his  own  Proposition.
lie sent Nurse for a glass of Water
and then begged his Fiancee to smuggle in a Newspaper so hc could find
out tbe name of his next gctting-off
Station.
Next day she brought a Market
Page in her wonderful jewel-crusted
Bag.
Bob took one Look and crawled
under  the  Covers.
Thc Market had gone Blooey.
Bucket Preferred was down in the
Subway, bleeding from a dozen
Wounds.
The Whole List was on thc Blink-
cty Fritz.
"Courage. Dearie." said Bob, taking
Elphye by the Rings. "Your little
Playmate  is  erased  from   the   map."
Elphye upset two Rolling Chairs
and one Interne to the Open Air.
Annie found the poor Bankrupt
