Kerr Addresses Enthusiastic
Meeting at Fraser Hall
Would Employ Five  Hundred   and   Fifty  Men at  Present  in
South Vancouver
An excellent reception was awarded Ex-Rene Kerr last night at Fras-
Cf Hall, where he maintained his policy as stated at a previous meeting
lhat retrenchment is not always the
���best method. When t<"j much emphasized in hard times it is a bad ad-
trtisement. People would leave the
*>i>trict when there was ne, work, and
thers certainly would not come into
���1 Ml Kerr declared iha: there was
IK) r.-ason why 550 men should not
"ne   V   work   in   the   iiiiui'cipality   at
present. 200 on Main Street, 200 me,re
tnrougii thc different ward1- and 150
OH the necessary work 'if opening up
the sewers. The est, he sard would
be   slight
Main Street was already looked
after, while the other w.rk could
se,e,n be taken care of. Mr Kerr
promised that if elect' j, it we,uld be
his policy to get the co-operation e,f
the members of the ojuncil f'.r the
bc-t   interest  of the  municipality.

"Xow is the high  tide of the year,
And whatever of life hath ebbed away
Comes   flooding   back   with   a   ripply

Into every bare  inlet  and  creek  and

Joy conies, grief goes, we know not

Everything is happy now,
Everything  is   upward   striving."

Sir Etienne Cartier Honored
The various branches of the Women's Canadian Club throughout the
Dominion have been asked to assist
in a fund for the purpose of erecting
a  Cartier monument iu  Montreal.
The  monument  is  for  Sir  Etienne
Cartier, who was the most prominent
French-Canadian from the union till
the time of his death in 1875. Next
to Sir Wilfrid Laurier he was the
most prominent French-Canadian in
public life. When a very young man
he joined with Papineau, in thc rebellion of 1837, and for a time was a fugitive from Canada. Later hc returned
to the country, and again entered
political life. Iu 1854 he became the
leader of the French-Canadian section
of the Conservative party, and united
with Sir John MacDonald in the Mac-
Uonald-Carticr government, lie led
the French Canadian party during
the  time  when   Hon.   George   Brown
fought for representation by population. When confederation was sug-
gested in 1864, be joined with the
i'ther illustrious Canadian politicians
in framing confederation. Hc was
responsible for the fact that Quebec
was a willing and anxii>us partner in
confederation. He was the French
Canadian government, acting as minister of militia and defence He was
born in  1814, and died in 1873.
H. A. BEAUMONT
Working Men's Candidate for Ward
Five
Mr. II. A. Beaumont, the working-
man's candidate for the councillor-
ship of Ward Five stands high in the
opinion of his friends. He has resided
in South Vancouver for four years
and has a record of 12 years of service for his country. Previous to coming to Canada Mr. Beaumont was a
photographer in Swinton, Welto,
whose work has been patronized by
nobility.
During the Boer War, Mr. Beaumont was present at the Relief of
I.adysmith and at Colenso saw the
death of Lieutenant Roberts, of the
Royal Field Artillery, while endeavoring  to  save  the  guns.
Regarding his departure for South
Africa the Lewkesburg "Record" says:
"Out of some forty or fifty men
still liable for service with the colors,
Sergt. Beaumont, of the Welsh * usi-
liers, and till this morning in the employment of the Postal authorities,
has been almost the only man called
away. Last night his fellow postmen
entertained him to a farewell supper
at the Berkeley Arms, and this morning a large number of townsmen saw
him off by the 9.55 train. The station
was decorated with flags and passengers from Malvern way were startled
to hear three ringing cheers and a
chorus of good-byes as the train
steamed away. Sergt. Beaumont is
universally liked and respected by all
classes in the town, and it is the wish
of every heart that if it should be his
lot to see the stern realities of war,
he may be kept safe and sound once
SIX   REASONS
WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF
CREOSOTED WOOD
BLOCK PAVEMENTS
ITS DURABILITY���Does not crumble or pulverize under the densest traffic; second only to granite
blocks
ITS EASE OF REPAIR���No difficulty being experienced in removing and replacing the blocks; no
expensive plant or skilled workmen required.
ITS SANITARY QUALITIES���Creosote being a
highly antiseptic and waterproofing material instantly destroys ail germs, prevents the absorption of
street filth and consequent decay.
ITS NOISELESSNESS���The rattle and bang of
vehicles passing over its smooth surface absorbed'
and muffled till the quiet of the dirt road is obtained.
ITS DUSTLESSNESS���Does not pulverize; the
heaviest traffic only pounding down the wood fibres
to offer the greater resistance.
ITS CLEANLINESS���Having a smooth surface and
being waterproof it does not differ in this respect
from asphalt.
We manufacture blocks of the highest possible
standard, the verv best materials only being used and
in the DOMINION WOOD BLOCKS we believe
we produce an article that has no equal.

The "financial itringi iicy" has been
put forward by lome oi the "ec in i
misers" as an "luce: less in to be taken in heart l>y the various public
bodies Retrenchment i- their watchword and by that they mean that the
municipalities ihould "take a rest"
in the way of all improvement work
of whatever "attire at all. They alsee
advocate the sweating e.f various public departments in order that a few
dollars might be knocked off th
It is a Napoleonic policy and at one
stroke ihey propose to put the city
and municipalities een their feel again
and  wipe  ..ut  financial   stringency.
But will it? It seems lie ns as il
ii was putting the cart before the
lorse. If they pursue this ill-considered policy will it de. anything to
lighten the burden of the citizens at
large.
Tee some it may. Those men who
have got big chunks of acreage sub-
die, ided into lols will benefit in that
they will be able to keep the taxes
down to the same level. Their property and the interest e.n their other
investments is plenty big enough to
keep them from the need of applying for a job at $3 per.
But with the working man it is
quite a different proposition. The
large majority of them have been
brought here by the fictitious real estate advertisements of these speculators who realised that freem the land
and labor cometh all wealth.
While the government and their
hirelings in the Old Country were
expounding by means of cinematograph films and gloriously illustrated
pamphlets the bounteous store of
wealth that could be had in the golden west, they took precious good care
that the immigrant would met have
much chance ot* "getting next" tei it
The writer can well remember reading some of these government publications in which great stress was laid
on the fact that there were no poor-
houses in li. C. and that no necessity
existed for them so long as a man or
woman was able bodied and mentally
efficient.
Quite  a  few  Old  Country  people
left for here with the fond hope thai
some day they wi uld have their name
emblazoned In "letters of gold" on
the archway at the entrance to their
orchard.
It did not take them long to get
disillusioned. While tlle government
and the speculators were very anxious
to get them back to lhe land���the
terms on which they were to get their
"orchard" or "ranch" were so pne-
hibitive that they threw up their hands
in disgust.
Wheels work within wheels and
knowing that these people would be
forced into the city the speculators
took goexl care to get all the property
on the lower mainland within ten
miles of Vancouver "coralled" and cut
up into miserable 33-foot lots. They
had them both  ways.
The people came in and they had
to get hollies. Soon rents were >ei

the option of keeping roomers and
turning his wife into a chattel sl.ve
or getting eiut into the bush and living  like  a   Siwash.

worked up from the bottom and whose services will
be of value to the municipality.
A man not tied up with any clique or faction who is
willing to sacrifice his time and energy for the good
of South Vancouver where the results of his life's
work are located.
A man who has a mind of his own and who will fight
for the right and who will back up any reeve who endeavors to do right.

MVnCAL
Empress Theatre
For Miss Nance O'Neil's opening
telll Messrs. Lawrence & Sandusky
have selected Sudermann's masterpiece, "Magda." Miss O'Neil's preeminence in the title role has been
conceded by critics and playgoers the
world over, and out of all her very
extensive repertoire perhaps no better selection could have been made.
Miss Nance O'Neil is not an entire
stranger in Vancouver as she has fav-
e.reil this cily with her presence before, her last visit hcing some three
years ago when shc played to packed
house!   for   every   performance.
Columns and columns have been
written in praise <if Miss O'Neill by
eminent critics in almost every quarter of the globe. She is the Bernhardt of the English speaking stage.
She is handsome, imposing, forcible
and physically and temperamentally
she is richly equipped for her work.
It is now nearly four years since Miss
O'Neil appeared in Vancouver. In
the interim she has played London.
Australia, and South Africa. She has
travelled far and widely and played
in many parts since that time, and
she has gathered that experience without which no artiste, however richly
endowed, may achieve enduring success.
In "Magda" she reaches heights of
emotional intensity reached by no
living actress excepting perhaps the
divine Sara. Her commanding presence, wonderfully rich and flexible
voice  dominate  every  scene.
As  to  the  play  itself,  it  is  Suder-
.niann's masterpiece.    Its original title
was "llemat" (home) but in England
and America, always played as "Magda" from ihe leading character.
Sudermann speaking through Magda, has set himself to whip a great
social question; he lias gone ahead
of his world to pour denunciation and
scorn eni tlle puritanical scruples for
the relation  of  the sexes.
"Before all else ! am a human being." The mental attitude of woman
in revolt forms the basis of Sudermann's play, and the working out of
Magda's agonized yet defiant cry "I
am myself, and through myself I have
become what I am" is tragic in the
extreme. Mr. Del Lawrence appears
in the supporting cast with Miss O'Neil in the prominent role of Colonel
Schwartze, with the leading members
of the Lawrence Company congenially placed
The piece will lie staged and directed by Mr. Alfred Hickman, Miss O'
Neil's stage director, air' himself an
English actor of established reputation.

Orpheum Theatre
Not content with giving Vancou-
verites one hcadliner on the bill at
the Orpheum Theatre next week, the
management has decided on two and
as each one of these is lirst class
there will doubtless bc much Satisfaction  shown.
Romeo the Great, an educated
Chimpanzee will lie hcadliner, No. 1,
while Tameei Kajiyama, the Japanese
ambidextrous writing marvel, will bc
the second  headliner.
A meist extraordinary young man
is Tameo Kajiyama, the young Japanese Student, who has an uncanny
faculty for using his brain and hands
in clever combination. He can write
different words with the two hands,
forming the letters either upside down
or backward, and this is only one of
the unique variations on the usual
process.
Animal training has been carried
to such lengths these days that it is
difficult to surprise the public with
anything of the sort, but Romeo the
Great, a chimpanzee, is the latest
word in such effort. He has been
taught to do everything���except speak
���that the average human being can
do. His trainer and exhibitor, Prof.
Albert Drowiskey, was likewise responsible   for   the   public   appearance

Vancouverites will remember with
pleasure the former visit of Percy
Bronson and Winnie Haldwin, two of
the most attractive and clever song
and dance artists on the vaudeville
���tage. They have more than usually
agreeable personalities, and their material is dainty and refined.
Not many people are qualified to
give real interpretations oi darky folk
songs and folk lore. Willettc Whitaker. a charming Southern woman, is
able to do it, partly because she has
made a life-long study of the lubjiCt,
and because she has a beautiful con-
iralin voice in which to sing these
; melodies. Assisting her in the act is
|F. Wilbur Hill, a violiniil oi marked
ability.
Anne Kent is known as "The Little Jester." because of her inimitable
way of putting funny songs and funny
patter over the footlights She has
been seen in Winnipeg before, but
comes this time with an entirely new
turn.
Something unusual of the "strong
man" type is offered by Barrows and
Milo. They arc remarkably developed, muscularly. and vary the usual
hand-balancing by making it actually
wrist-to-wrist work, which is naturally as difficult as it is uncommon.

laml. It makes him their lord, and
them his slaves. That is a relation
between human beings which is incompatible with human reason. Reason tells us that all men have equal
rights to (heir own lives���to the pursuit of happiness in accordance with
their own conceptions and ideals; and
therefore they must necessarily have
equal rights tei the land em which life
and the pursuit of happiness depend.
Hut our present laws say : "The land
belongs to the monopolist, and therefore the non-monopolists have no right
to use the land witlneut his ceinsent."
In either words, they have no right
to life except em the monopolist's
terms. And his terms are. of course,
that he should be allowed to take from
them, under the name of rent, as much
as he possibly can, of their means of
life and happiness. Thus the non-
inonooolists are forced to pursue
painful toil and undergo cruel deprivation, instead of freely pursuing their
own happiness, which is the true end
eif life. Hence land-monopoly law is
contrary to the law of life and the
law of reason; and insofar as men up-
liold and are governed by it, they are
not rational���not human beings, but
beasts. Instead of a community of
human beings subject to the law of
reason, there is a herd of beasts lorded over by a fellow beast���a chough

like a useless parasitical animal, "at
the king's mess." by pilferage from

Mexican War Inspires New Fashions
If the Kast can create a -fashion,
why not the West? Balkan troubles
are over, and with them Bulgarian
trimming. But Mexico's are���well,
not just begun, and certainly not yet
finished. Every one i9 talking of
things Mexican. Soon everyone will
lie wearing them.
And what can  Mexico offer for a
prominent place in the world of
styles? color, certainly, as rich as the
Balkans girls ever flaunted, for the
olive-skinned Southerner loves contrasts, and the more startling the belter. Beautiful shawls, lavish ornaments are features of her picturesque
dress. But the men can contribute,
too, for the full fight of old Spain
still lives and with it the toreador's
costume.
ference would that make from a na
tienial standpoint When the monopolist spends his money, it goes to
support many industries, and through
the industries, tei support the workers
in those industries, and iheir families."
Yes; that is a half truth which is
more damnable than a whole lie. For
the monopolist not only extorts the
$50,000 which he dues not earn, from
the people who ti<> earn it. and thus
literally sucks their life-blood; hut Ileuses that $50,000 te, draw the best-
skilled labor from the trades that minister to the real and wholesome wants
of the majority, to minister to the
pampered luxury, extravagance,
wastrelism and criminality of thc
minority. What he extracts as a
parasite, he spends in the support of
parasitical "industries" and "idlenesses."
But, important as is this keeping
of tbe wealth in the hands of those
who cam it, and would make best use
of it. there is an even more important
thing that the land values tax could
accomplish���that is, that as thc communal value of land would have to
be paid for to the State, no one could
monopolise and hold it out of use for
the purpose of forcing other people
to pay thein for the communal value.
Instead of other people paying them
for their monopoly, they would have
to pay the State for it. Hence monopoly would bc starved out. There
would be no more  obstruction to the
s asses that tall, for thejnse of the land, and everyone could
have what laud they wanted on equal
conditions, viz., the payment of the
site value tn the State. Thus all land
would come into use. for one would
pay the State for it unless he could
use it for some purpose. And as the
.use of land means thc employment
I of labor, the utilizing of the land
which is now idle would necessarily
mean more work and better pay for
all classes of productive workers.
That is to sav, the land values tax
would give all citizens equal opportunities of usinp the land, either as
direct tenants or as a wage earners.
In fact, all who are shipwrecked and
tossed about in the chaos of our "civilization" could get their feet on to
firm ground, as Gonzaln longed to
do.
chough's advantage, what they suppose to be the chough's land.
That is how the "landed interests"
and the landledless lack of interests,
appeared to Hamlet. "What a piece
of work were man!" if he had not
given away his right to the land on
which his right to live depends. "How
noble in reason! How inliinile in
faculty! In form and moving how
express and admirable! In action
how like an angel! In appreciation
how like a god! And in subjugation
uneler tlle yoke of landlordism how
like a beast!
Truly, man who was created in the
image of God���with a free will���and
given a free garden ('wherein are the
trees of life and knowledge'), that hc
might continue forever as the image
of Divine Freedom, has made a most
egregious assenine beast of himself,
by giving away his right to the garden, which was the necessary condition of his freedom and all his possible excellence. So thought Hamlet, and so think the land value taxers
who are out to re-establish him in his
rights to the land which the Lord
God gave him.
Xo one who has well considered
the effect of land monopoly upon human society generally, and in its degradation of human character in particular, will think the radicalism of
Hamlet's opinion, or the manner of
his expressing it. is in the least exaggerated.
The wise old counsellor Gonzalo
also had something tei say touching
the land question. To him, however,
the question did not appeal in its general, political, ethical and economic
aspects, but in the personal pang
which tortures a man as soon as he
realizes that he is cut off from free
access to the land. All the propaganda
ism of the land value taxers. if they
hael existed in his day. would not have
convinced wise old Gonzalo, counsel-
leer to a king, eif the deep significance
of tlle phrase���"free access to the
land." Hut its shipwreck at sea drove
its full force of meaning straight home
to the very core ol him, and he exclaimed in an agony of conviction,
"Now would I give a thousand furlongs of sea for an acre of barren
ground; long heath, brown furze, anything." Why did Gonzalo become so
desirOUl to "grab" an acre of barren
ground? Was it that he wanted it
to sell or let? or to "hold it up" until I a city was built around it? By
no means. His interest in land, at
that critical point of his life, was not
the interest of a Would-be landlord or
speculator, but of one who fell Ihe
need of land for his own personal use.
Ile wanted it 'too put it to its best
use"���not for the purpose of levying
blackmail from some one else for
wanting to use it. He wanted it for
the purpose e,f saving and maintaining his own life, and not as a means
of lining other people for maintaining  themselves.
As Gonzalo's interest as a wnuld-
ln- user of a barren acre, was infinitely greater than his interest in il as a
would-be monopolist; so thc nation's
interest in the best use of the land is
infinitely greater than the combined
interests of its monopolists.
A monopolist has. sav. an income
of $50,000 ground rents. The benefit
that the one monopolist derives from
that -$50,000 is not to be compared
with the good it would have done the
thousands of families from whom it
was exorted. "But," the objector replies, "if the monopolist did not take
it, the Government would." Yes, that
is what the land value taxers want.
"So, wherein lies the benefit of the
land values tax to the people." retorts

In t, Esprit des Francail is an instance of the sharp, biting wit for
which Alexis Piron, the French epigrammatist, was famous ; A young
author whose ability was hy no means

at length upon the merits of his work
"I am tired of writing of that which
others write of," he said. "I want
to create an original work, something
that no one has ever written about
or ever will write about." Piron
turned quickly to the speaker, "Why

He was a very solemn little boy,

A MAY DAY TRAGEDY
True Greatness is Never Pompous 1
I [erbert Kaufman
A GREAT position is a magnifying glass upon a little nature.    When ynu were obscure the world at
large couldn't learn how small you were, but when you rose above the crowd we instantly perceived
your shortcomings.
Your self satisfaction stamps you as a parvenu.
If you   were  accustomed  lo recognition, you  wouldn't insist upon it.
Your constant reference to your status proclaims that few are aware of it and suggests that you have
but recently  "arrived."
Important people are so occupied with their responsibilities that they haven't time for paltry vanities.
The  famous do not personally advertise���their admirers perform that function for them.
If your ability were genuine it would lie ingenious. The first essential tn power and force is a contempt eif trifles.   Hunger for cheap adulation is the indubitable mark of a petty bouI.
Your evident delight with your rank proclaims tbat ymi have just attained it.
Sn long as you persist in explaining who you are you'll remind us of what you used to be.
Let your work talk.   Your tongue can't take its place.
You furnish the deeds and we'll supply the approbation.
If you're really competent you'll soon drop youi" pomposity and subside into a well-mannered, considerate gentleman.
Those who have the most can most afford to be unobtrusive. They know that their achievements
so outshine their personalities that there is no need to adopt identification marks.
The field marshal doesn't wear his dress uniform in action.
Kings do not take their private walks in crown a"d ermine.
The actor invariably accentuates his characterization.
The imitation great man over emphasizes his'ittvpersonation.
Popularity can't begin at home. The mirror is a" inaccurate judge of merit. Until you learn to forget self, humanity won't yearn to remember yon.
Fame immortalizes only those who think  tor others.    History pays no compliments to the selfish.
Wink you listen to the voice of vanity, you'll strain in vain for thc applause of'humanity.
It is our privilege to recognize genius���not your prerogative to assume it.
A beast of the fields once masqueraded in the robes of the king of the forest. At a "distance thc deception was effective.
But, not content with his superficial success, he insisted upon roaring for the respect due thc linn.
Whereupon his hearers broke into derisive laughter, remarking tn one another: "If he hadn't brayed we
wouldn't have known he was an ass."

Expert  Tells  How  City May  Bring
Down  Living Cost
One of the big problems interesting
the whole country today is how to
reduce the high cost of living. Here
is a suggestion as to the solution of
this problem, presented by J. W. Sullivan in his recently published book
on "Markets for the People, The
Consumer's Part."
Mr. Sullivan has devoted at least
seven years to thc study of the market question. As labor investigator
for the Commission on Public Utilities of the National Civic Federation,
he travelled in America and Great
Britain and later spent over a year
on the continent. In 1909, with President Samuel Gompers of the American Federation of Labor, Mr. Sullivan toured many European countries,
and In 1912 went to Europe again,
centring his inquiries on market systems. Hc claims that Paris, London
and Berlin are thc only cities of Eu-
nipe in the class with New York for
scale and conditions of supply, transportation, wholesaling and retailing.
The consumer should recognise his
responsibility in the attempt to reduce the high cost of living, efficient
household management and the return to the market basket. Since anywhere from 45 to 60 per cent, of the
family's income goes for food, the
question of markets and marketing of
produce should be the primary interest.
Therefore, Mr. Sullivan advocates
two things; "Ambulant street vend-
iiiil, free to all coiners, limited in
range only by necessary health laws
and any higher social exigencies of
other traffic; and open air markets,
to be held for a few hours semi-weekly
or tri-wcekly. in street or park eir
other public space, in any quarter of
Greater New York where bodies of
consumers may demand them; free
to all vendors either of foodstuffs or
manufactured articles of household or
personal use."
He also urges that the present public markets be improved by modern
methods]   by   auctioning  produce,   li
censing commission men, selling by
samples and direct delivery from producer to consumer. The retailer and
middleman under existing conditions
are forced to keep prices above what
is necessary, and a glutted market
cannot be relieved through present
channels, 'lhe push-cart man can take
advantage of an occasional over-supply, because of the ease of this method
of distribution, and let the public benefit by the lowered prices caused by
large crops.
Experiments in open-air markets
have proved successful in London,
Paris and Greater Berlin and have
had a tendency to regulate indoor selling by establishing a sound basis of
trade, unhampered by possible agreement and manipulation of prices, Mr.
Sullivan holds that under such a system the department store and the syndicate stores would also become more
efficient   distributing   agencies.
Co-operative markets based on the
English method have failed in this
country because of an insufficient
study of national character and condition  peculiar to America.
Housed municipal markets with
rows of stalls open the full week have
proved failures in this country partly because of the distance from the
commission house to retailer, and
cost of transporting produce about
thc  city.
These suggestions for a public metropolitan market can be effected without municipal or private outlay.
Certain ideas discussed sound somewhat socialistic, as for instance the
chapter "A Rightful Use of Common
Property."  but   arc  only  in   harmony
with the trend of today.
The book is full ol meaty subject
matter which makes it a direct contribution to existing thought and writings on a very present topic,
Correspondence
Appeal  to  Women Voters  of  South
Vancouver
Editor "Chinook" :
Sir,���In choosing a candidate for
Reeve to represent South Vancouver,
what should be the vital qualities most
desired in the character of the man?
Judging from discussions both from
the platform and through the press,
one would think that business ability
was of tbe greatest importance, and
it seems to take lirst place invariably.
While no doubt every one admits
that good business is very essential.
yet there is another and more vital
quality which should be of vast importance to every woman voter, and
that is clean, moral principles, apart
from which clean-cut, honest business
can  never bc  transacted.
"Water always finds its own level,"
and the man with low moral principles will be governed by them when
discharging his authorities as Reeve
of the municipality.
Women, "let us show our colors
and  vote  for  Ex-Reeve  Kerr."

PROTECT your interests by Voting for him on  S
What Ex-Reeve KERR
has done:
Ex-Reeve Kerr advocated Incorporation and
the abolishment of the Ward System which
you defeated last year.
Ex-Reeve Kerr wanted thousands of dollars
in legal expenses, and left a LEGACY OF
LAW SUITS to their successors to clean up,
owing to ihe method of their arrangement
with the late Municipal Solicitor Clarke. Last
year the Solicitor's department cost in legal
expenses $12,300.00.
The contract for the big iron tank, 75 feet
high, at Collingwood, manufactured in AMERICA, LOCAL LABOR BEING SHUT OUT,
was let by Ex-Reeve Kerr at a cost to the
ratepayers of $31,000.00���a MONUMENT to
Kerr's waste of our money. The City 6f Vancouver's present intake at Seymour Creek is
not sufficiently high enough to give water
pressure to fill this tank without pumps being
used, which is very c.ystly. Superintendent.'
Mullett kept pumps going when there was no
water to pump.
Ex-Reeve Kerr let a contract for two Seagrave Chemical Fire Autos and paid $1800
more than was tendered to the City of Vancouver on these same machines, and which
are unreliable, having broke four crank shafts
within two months of delivery. Who had the
change?
Ex-Reeve Kerr loaned $108,000.00 at five and
six per cent, out of OUR SINKING FUND
to his friends, among whom were W. A. Pound,
F. R. Elliott (Manager of Kerr's last campaign), Peach, R. M. Robson, and others of
the Main Street and Board of Trade gang,
while we RATEPAYERS were paying over
seven per cent, to the Bank of Montreal.
Ex-Reeve Kerr let a large, contract for the
Gaincwetl Fire Alarm System without calling
for tenders, at an exorbitant figure, which will
cost the municipality over $25,000.00, on the
recommendation of the municipal electrician,
Rawden, and Kerr and Rawden were about to
change the 615 arc lamps throughout the municipality into flaming arc lamps at a cost of
about $75,000.00.
What do you ratepayers think of
a man whom you elected in 1912 as
an ANNEXATIONIST then flopped to Incorporation (which you
heavily defeated), then had the gall
to run for Reeve and was defeated
by an overwhelming majority on
January 17th of this year. And now
v.ithin four months since his defeat
has the AUDACITY and IMPERTINENCE to again attempt to
foist and push himself upon us.
Is this not a direct insult to the
intelligence of the Voters of South
Vancouver.
UOUS fight against the
icipality.
DAY,  MAY 16,  1914.
What Ex-Councillor
GOLD has done:
fold has always been a strong ANNEXATIONIST and was instrumental in calling together the other municipalities with a view to
joint action to further the interest of ANNEXATION, which will soon be accomplished.
Gold has had capable and reputable solicitors
appointed at a fixed salary of $3000.00 per annum, who are to do ALL THE LEGAL
WORK of the municipality, including fighting
cases through the Appeal Courts of British
Columbia without extra charge to the ratepayers.
Ex-Reeve Kerr showed in his balance sheet
of last year, that the waterworks system under
Superintendent Mullett made a profit of about
$25,000.00. THIS IS INCORRECT. Whereas
there is a real loss for last year alone of about
$40,000.00.
Park Bylaw money of $42,500.00 was in
General Fund, and Gold had it ordered to be
put in a separate account in the bank, to be
applied in October next for the purchase of
the Little Mountain Park of the C.P.R., so
that this money would not be mis-spent.
Gold's action in starting suit against the
Wood Block Paving Contract on Fraser St.
saved South Vancouver about $150,000.00 on
the difference between wood blocks and other
and better waterproof pavement. And also
$100,000.00 which is expected the Government
will grant towards Fraser Street as they did
on Kingsway, but would not make any grant
if wood blocks were used.
Gold has been working to accomplish a fair
deal with the City of Vancouver for water,
without any expenditure, allowing the City
of Vancouver to use our record of 550 miner's
inches on Seymour Creek and paying cost of
maintenance.
THERE WAS an expenditure of $360.00 to
open a street adjoining Kenneth Lamond's
property, of "Western Call" fame, which property ia abutting the Gold property, a distance
of 125 feet each. Thia being the only street
leading from 38th Avenue to Lamond s property as shown in plan.

GOLD HAS cut down Municipal Hall Staff and
saved $15,000.00 per annum to the ratepayers.
GOLD FAVORS reduction of taxes by wise and
careful administration, and preventing unnecessary
expenditure of ratepayers' money.
GOLD FOUGHT the Main St. and Fraser St. contracts amounting to $790,000.00 on account of the
manner it was let by Kerr's administration, viz.,
"Without calling for public tenders," which protect
the ratepayers.
GOLD IS in favor of paving all streets of the property owners on any street they desire it.
GOLD IS in favor of giving the property owners
the right to say what class of pavement they prefer, since they pay 40 PER CENT, of the Bond Issue as well as 60 PER CENT, of the general rate.
DON'T FORGET every ratepayer throughout the
municipality has to bear the burden of 60 PER
CENT, of the Bond Issue for local improvement
and paving work.
