Local Liberal Association Makes
Reply to Sir Richard McBride
" We are Proud of Our Fisheries," aays Richmond Executive
Government's Failure to Encourage Food Production in the
Province is Cause of Famous Resolution Which Has Brought
Forth Heated Letter from the Prime Minister
Throughout the Province interest
"has been aroused t11 a high pitch over
the resolution of the Richmond Liberal Association, which, fathered by
a South Vancouver delegate, criticised
the Government feir not endeavoring
t" encourage a food production policy
in  British  Columbia.
Sir Richard replied to the resolution to the extent of live columns in
tlle Government press of the Province.
The Liberal Association at a meeting
last week authorized tlle secretary. Mr.
T. S. Brown, tu write lhe Premier asking certain questions. When a reply
is received, thc Richmond people will
likely consider the desirability uf withdrawing tiie famous resolution.
Hun. Sir Richard McBride,
Premier,  British  Columbia,
Victoria,  1!.  C.
Dear Sir.���The executive of tlle
Liberal Association for the Electoral
District of Richmond beg to acknowledge receipt eef yeiur favor of the 2fith.
November last. I am instructed to advise you that your letter is now before that body fur consideration. I
am also instructed to advise you that
the Richmond Liberal Executive wish
-to make clear to you that the resolution was passed with a view to securing better agricultural conditions iu
this Province, and to bring to your
attention a condition of affairs which
in the interests of the people of this
province the executive were of the
opinion needed attention anil remedy.
Witb reference to your suggestion
"that the resolution was passed without
mature consideration or without a
knowledge and due consideration of
���the facts, I am instructed to advise
you that while the Executive of thc
Liberal Association for the Electoral
District of Richmond, having at heart
the interests of the people of British
Columbia, are willing to reconsider
any resolution passed by that body
mid if tbe resolution is proved to be
unsound and not justified in fact, to
withdraw the same. Before adopting
any such course I am requested to
secure from you more definite particulars than your letter conveys. To
that end I am instructed to present
the following questions to you with
the request that they be answered before the next monthly meeting of the
Association, January 2. when our resolution will again come up for consideration. The questions have been
formed with a view to securing detailed information of thc policy of the
Government and the results which have
been secured. In view of the fact that
there are nu Liberal members in thc
Legislative Assembly by whom these
questions could hc asked, we'trust that
yuu will imt consider it an abuse of
yuur recognized generosity tu request
you to give the Information required.
We regret that yuur error, doubtless unintentional, in reading the
words of our resolution as "being bad
1i-h from the Fraser River" instead uf
what was written, viz.. "being but lish
from the Fraser River" has put you
in the apparent position eef adroitly
distorting emr language and us into the
]ieesition of disparaging our II. C. fisheries of which we are justly proud,
i lur expression was one of regret that
the food production of thc Province
had not been further advanced. However this Association will be found
ready and even eager to give the Government any credit which may be due
it, and a satisfactory answering of the
following questions may clear up the
situation in thc matter of fisheries,
railways, and land settlement to such
an extent that successful efforts maybe put forth to rescue this Province
from tbe unhappy position in which
it finds itself.
"Re British Columbia  Fisheries
1. What is thc Provincial Government doing to recover for the white
fisherman and laborer his lost posi-
tiein in the fishing and canning industries of the  Province?
2. What steps were taken by the
Geivernment towards the investigation
of alleged sinister manipulations in
connection with the scheme promoted
fcy Sir George Doughty, known as the
British Columbia Fisheries Limited,
which resulted disastrously to a large
number of English investors and to
the commercial credit of British Columbia?
3. To what extent did assistance or
���encouragement given to this scheme
by your Government or by individual
members of it accentuate the damage
d.ine to the Province by tbe collapse
of thc project?
Re Your Land Policy
1. What is the total area of arable-
lands of the Province of British Columbia and what percentage thereof is
under cultivation?

powers uf attorney as laid down in
the following cases: Clark vs. Swan, i
Vol. 5, W.W.R. 319 and Brownlee vs
Mcintosh, Veil. 6, W.W.R. 1137?
6. What sum is today due the
Government in respect of Crown
Lands alienated, other than coal, timber and mineral lands, and whv has
this sum not heen collected especially
from the speculators?
7. Is it true that large sums in the
form of taxes, land payments and
mining or timber licenses or royalties
are due and in arrears on holdings
owned or held wholly or largely by
alien enemies of the Crown? If so
"hat does the Government propeese to
do about it:
8. Section A. Is not the Minister
of Agriculture, the Hon. Mr. Price
Ellison, largely interested in a British
Columbia corporation which holds for
speculation vast areas of agricultural
lands upon which are arrears of payment now due the Government? Section B. Are there other ministers of
the Crown involved in similar relations?
9. Are not the best lands adjacent

or homesteads in the Province abandoned since 1903 and the reasons attributed   for   such   abandoning?

1. What interest has been defaulted by thc Canadian Northern Pacific
or the Pacific Great Eastern and to
what amount at any time since the
Government  guaranteed  their   bonds?
2. Did you know, at the time your
Government voted further financial
aid during the last session to the Canadian Northern, that it was at that
time on the verge of insolvency and
that without Federal assistance the
railway   company   would   have   failed?
Trusting that you will favor us with
a reply at your earliest convenience.
1 am, Sir, Yours etc.,

Secretary   Richmond   District   Liberal
Association
Facts and Fancies
By "Observer"
x>
As an observer only, with in. personal interest in annexation or incorporation or thc keeping up of
three administrations in Vancouver,
Point Grey and South Vancouver, it
seems to nie that some of the advocates of annexation are blinded by the
title "City of Vancouver" t.e the advantages of a Greater Vancouver with
a central administrative body for matters which affect the whole district
and separate local councils for local
affairs. It is asserted by Mr. Robert
McBride that "it is the city vote that
elects the officials in South Vancouver and Point Grey," and by officials
I take it hc means Reeve and Councillors.
* *     Sr
Assuming that Mr. McBride is correct there is this difference between
present conditions and in thc event of
annexation: At present the men elected by "the city vote" devote their
whole attention to the requirements
of South Vancouver and Point Grey
without any interference from the
aldermen elected for Vancouver. When
annexation is consummated the men
elected by "the city vote" will watch
over Vancouver's interest, as against
thc interests of the districts now
known as South Vancouver and Point
Grey. For instance, the interests of
Burrard Inlet district will always
have preference over the interests of
the Fraser river district. When "the
city vote" controls both districts.
* *        *
Mr. McBride will doubtless argue
that the men elected by "the city
vote" will favor the Fraser river just
as much as Burrard Inlet. The experience of the past does not warrant such an assumption, however;
but it docs warrant the fear that men
elected by "the city vote" will pull for
Vancouver   all   the   time;   and   South

The Ladies Guild of St. Margaret's

ladies : Fancy work, Mrs. Palmer and
Mrs. Bedford; groceries and home
cooking. Miss Goddard; plain needlework, Mrs. Goddard and Mrs. Hell:
rummage sale, Mrs. Jones and. Mrs.
Wright; while thc stall containing articles fm' infants and children was in
charge of live little girls who had
made and collected all the dainty contents and who cleared $8.00 from their
sale. Thc bazaar was opened by the
Arclieleace.n, whei made a brief address expressing appreciation of the
good work tlle ladies were doing, and
Iiis confidence in their success. There
was a good attendance, and each booth
presented ample temptation t" loosen

There are many Liberals in line for
nomination. Whether South Vancouver will be able te. produce a candidate
from within her own municipal boundaries is very questionable. S'e far the
name of no resilient eif the Municipality has been brought forward. This
seems peculiar in view of the fact that
the Municipality has a population of
nearly 35,000 people, mostly people tei
whom a Liberal or Radical platform
would appeal.
Prominent  Liberals who continue t"
be mentioned for the Dominion House
are   Messrs.   Ralph   Smith,   of     Point
Grey, the Hon. Joseph Martin, of Yancouver, G. G. McGeer. the well-known j
lawyer, who by the way is a self-made |
man. and Mr. George E. McCrossanJ
well   known  among  the  leading   Liberals of the  Province.
It is stated that the contest at a
convention would find Mr. Smith and
Mr. Martin in the finals. Both gentlemen have a large following in the
Municipality of South Vancouver,
though many well known Liberals arc-
in favor of having new blood injected
into  the  party.
Mr. Martin's speech at the South
Vancouver Liberal Cluh last week has
been widely discussed in the district,
i hat he should return to East St. Pan-
eras to contest that seat seems to local Martin adherents to be unfair to
those who would support him if he
were to contest South Vancouver for
the  Federal  House.
Provincial Politics
Provincial politics in South Vancouver are  swiftly supplanting  muni
Municipality, so desperate has feeling against them developed in those
quarters where working men, now unemployed, may be found in large num-
bers.
Notwithstanding this it is stated
that iln- Rev. George Morden. of
North Vancouver, may contest South
Vancouver for the Victoria House.
He will travel under the banner of
Sir Richard if he decides to run. There
are, however, several independent Conservative associations in South Vancouver. The force with which these
independents will attack the Bowser-
McBride machine will only be outdone  ./ that of the Liberals.
So far as the Liberals arc concerned in South Vancouver there will be
plenty of material for the Provincial
House. Among the names being mentioned are those of Mr. Donald Burgess. J. W. DeB. Farris. J. W. Weart,
Reeve Kerr and the Rev. George D.
Ireland. The name of Mr. Gregsby,
president of tlie Collingwood Liberal
Association has also been put forward.
Mr. Gregsby is a stone mason by-
trade. He understands the wants of
the working men of South Vancouver,
having a long familiarity with their
problems. Mr. Gregson is not a particularly over-zealous Liberal, but is
of that reliable make-up which marks
him as an outstanding figure at any
meeting. Other names have been
mentioned in connection with the
Liberal nomination for the Local
House. It is possible that two representatives will be returned from
South Vancouver. One of these, at
least, will have titi be a workingman,
a man who has eaten the bread of the
unemployed if possible���at least a man
who  is  in  absolute  touch    with    the
i cipal politics in the minds of the peo-; problems with which "the workingmen
I pie.    The condition of affairs now ob-   of  this   district   have   been   forced   to
tabling throughout the Province is be-j suffer.

HORRIBLE THREAT MADE TO
WARD THREE  RATEPAYERS
There was a lively meeting of the
ratepayers of Wanl Three some nights
ago, says an eye witness, when a candidate was being selected to contest
the ward for the council next year.
The man most anxious for the office
was of course defeated.
Drawing himself up to his full
height and taking a deep breath, the
defeated one thrust a hand into his
breast, then  said  he .
"You may turn me down and keep
me out of the council. But you cannot kill nuih. I will be heard from.
I will yet live to be elected to the
House at Victoria."
At this point he golded his voice
and concluded with the words :
"Yea, Oh generation of vipers! I
will yet live to bc elected to the
House  of   Commons."
After the speech several ratepayers
fainted and had to be carried out.
Christmas services of the Knox
Presbyterian Church will be held on
the Sunday following Christmas. Special Christmas music will bc rendered
at each of the services.

"They say ihat South Vancom er
is a hot-bed of Liberalism. If so Heaven help them at the next election,"
said Mr. R. C. Hodgson at the Ceelar
Cottage Conservative Association
meeting  this  week.
"Vou could met t'uiel a Liberal in
Cedar Cottage with a searchlight,"
continued Mr. Hodgson. "True they
have a club in Warel Four, but their
big noises are all imported from thc
city."
Within the brightly lighted Conservative headquarters all made merry.
Some uf the machine men from the
city had brought out fifteen cent
cigars fur the friends of the Conservative Club. Outside there passed
scores of the unemployed and many
a Cedar Cottage youngster whose
Christmas will not be very cheerful
listened in the neighborhood of the
Tory headquarters to the classic music
from within.
Mr. Stevens was welcomed as the
only man from Vancouver who had
ever done anything for Vancouver. It
was not mentioned that since Mr,
Stevens' election there was more poverty and want in South Vancouver
than at any other time. Mr. Stevens
said that he had received splendid
support in South Vancouver at the
last election. Though he told of the
great work done by the Borden Government in the way of Harbor Improvement, hc failed to suggest anything that the Government had done
towards Stocking the docks when
completed with the produce of the
lands and factories of the west. He
steered clear of the trade question.
Old Mr. McGowan, who for years
has toasted himself before the bright,
cheerful fire of Mr. Bowser at Victoria, was present, but his lengthy
speech was harmless.

which supported Mr. J. C. McArthur

Kingsway  Auxiliary
This month brings to a close a
short but successful year for the
Kingsway Auxiliary of the South  Hill
branch of the  Victorian    Order    of
Nurses. It will be remembered that
this auxiliary was organized in March,
1914, to cover the rather populace district bounded by Lakcview, Boundary
Road, Fifty-first Avenue and Hastings Townsite.
Those who have successfully officered the society during the period of its
existence are : Mrs. P. Oben, president; Mrs. Gilbert W. Hal! secretary;
and  Mrs.  Gregor,  treasurer.    A very
mpetent relief committee is convened by Mrs. Craig. It is expected
that the already large membership will
be much increased at the annual meeting next month.
The nurse, Miss Robinson, has been
kept busy during the year. The relief
committee arc contemplating an entertainment in the near future to add to
funds now depleted by numerous calls.
Those in charge arc working in touch
with a similar committee from the
Women's Institute to prevent overlapping. Calls for the nurse should
be made at 183 Fairmont Street,

dreamed of. There were men who knew that unless
a sane policy of development were taken up liritish
Columbia would sue mer or later reach the end of her
tether and among those men was Mr. Makovski.
Mr. Makovslci's articles have been, published in
pamphlet form under the title "The Remedy," and
every man interested in the future of British Columbia would do well to consider the constructive criticism contained in the wmk.
In the following words the author gives the keynote of liis pamphlet :
"Ju-t .is Cierinanv by instilling into llie minds of her
people the ideal of niilitary efficiency in every walk
of life, made in a quarter of a century tremendous
strides towards world domination; just as ill lur people became imbued with the ideal thai military strength
as applied to the art! of war would give tli.ni pros
perity and happiness; jusl as even the socialist party
in Germany became Convinced that fierce alone was
necessary For the conquest of economical and social
conditions; sei now liritish Columbia applying that
ideal to the arts of peace can hope to instil into her
people the ideal of organised efficiency in every walk
fficient methods,
GIVE THE RICH THE ROAD.'
RECENTLY the Automobile Club complained to
the local council that the practice of mothers
wheeling baby carriages em   Kingsway was a menace
to traffic.   The Club urged that the pavement be kept of life, so that by applying the most e
free of baby carriages,  that  there might  lie  a clear | the production of troods from the raw material with
right-of-way for my lord of the big automobile.
It was the ratepayers of Seiulh \ ancouver who paid
for the Kingsway pavement���and thc ratepayers of
South Vancouver are not very much interested in tlv
sport of .automobiling. It is impudence on the part
of the automobile man to dictate in any way to the
ratepayers of South Vancouver as to the rules which
will govern traffic on Kingsway.
On Kingsway in South Vancouver, the sidewalks
are not good. For block upon block, particularly in
thc Collingwood district, there are no sidewalks.
It is only natural that the timid mothers should
trespass upon the broad, smooth pavements with
their baby carriages. It would be much better that all
the motor traffic on Kingsway be stopped than tbat
the mothers Of the district have one single straw added to the burden they already have to bear. One of
their baby carriages i.s worth more to South Vancouver and the nation than ten automobiles.
Let us stretch a point if necessary for the benefit
of the mothers along Kingsway. Let those well fed
and well clothed members of the Automobile Club go
to the front if they desire to kill. In these days their
time is not so valuable that they cannot proceed so
slowly down Kingsway tbat mothers' and fcabies'
lives may have ample protection.
which the province is so richly endowed, may become
the guiding star of all her policies.
"Germain's error lay in her determination to conquer other nations and turn their people into Germans for the glorification of Germany.
"Hritish Columbia profiting by that experience
should determine to conquer sloth and selfishness and
turn them into efficiency and happiness, not for the
purpose of killing olher human beings but for enabling everybody in British Columbia to earn a living
according to their capabilities. Every encouragement
should be given to men and women to obtain for themselves the prizes of life but not througii making others
miserable. To build a nne humanity founded on character, not rules, is an ideal worth striving for.
"Ry applying co-operatively organised efficiency to
an army of labour every man can carry in his knapsack a field marshal's baton.
"The army of the future is to make war on those
forces of nature which militate against development.
British Columbia will be the first community in the
world to practice such a policy."

THE DOMINION TRUST COMPANY
FOR the past two weeks this journal has made
little comment upon the Dominion Trust Company smash-up, lest in so doing the interests of the
depositors might be injured.
On Friday night there was a meeting of the depositors when they recommended that the General Administration Society, headquarters Montreal, be appointed permanent liquidator.
During the past fortnight, the committee of depositors met with Mr. llowser, the Attorney-General. The
report of that interview has not yet been given to the
press.
Next week the situation will have developed to an
extent where it will be possible to go into the situation with some thoroughness.
It is possible that failure on the part of tlie Provincial Government to stand by the depositors will
have far-reaching results.

few Liberals in South Vancouver and that it was necessary for that parly to import from the city anil
elsewhere members for Liberal Associations. This
statement was doubtless made without a true knowledge of the fads. However, it leads up to an important question for all political parties in South
Vancouver���that of selecting candidates. If we can
not get men who are used to suffering our local hardships, breathing our South Vancouver air, eating our
Sou<li Vancouver food, and facing our local problems
generally, we cannot expect to profit to tlie full from
recent and proposed redistributions. The people
should cut an enormous figure in the election of South
Vancouver representatives.
FIRST IN THE platform of the Conservative Party
when they come before the people at the next Provincial Election will be the annexation of South Yancouver. Mr. Bowser will also promise to grant the
city the old court house site on Hastings Street.
���   ��   ���
OF COURSE THESE two planks will be merely
promises, llowser had a great many years in which
to carry through these two propositions. He will now
endeavor to make one last effort to secure votes by
coming forward with this sop.

MK. FREDERICK MANSEL will be a candidate
for councillor in Ward Three. He bears the endorsement of the Parliamentary Committee of the Trades
and Labor Council. Mr. Mansel is a strong union
man, the son of a strong union man. As a delegate
to the Trades and Labor council from the Bookbinders' Union, Mr. Mansel has always made himself felt.

NORTH FRASER HARBOR
BURNABY is still holding out against making its
payment towards defraying the cost of tbe preliminary plans for the North Fraser Harbor work.
One councillor claims that $5,000 a year is a great
deal of money to pay a chief engineer. Another says
that the commissioners have been extravagant in allowing a representative who visited Ottawa on business in connection with the harbor the sum of $400.
Whatever the original objections of the Burnaby council were, these recent criticisms show that Burnaby
is only quibbling.

"Play billiards," says Lord Lonsdale, "if vein would enjoy gemd health,
anel there is no such thing as indigestion for liim whe, follows mi a hearty
dinner with half an hour with tbe cue
and ivories."
And all this is met bard to understand. The digestive processes of the
body are al their best during a period
ni comparative relaxation and light
exercise. No other diversion is sn
conducive to such a state as a game
ul billiard.-. This is why the billiarel
room in the Inline of the Englishman
always adjoins the dining room, liil-
liards as a recreation therefore becomes a part of the meal
li would appear that Americans
have awakened 1" ibis fact, for never
before in the history of that country
has there been an interest ill this game
as has been shown at tlie present time.
The lu une today of the American
of fair means has a beautiful equipped
billiard room in which society gather
to attend the hilliard receptions that
have become wry popular owing to
the must prominent physicians advising   their   patients   to   play   billiards.
The game exercises the brain as
well as every muscle of the body,
thereby offering a pleasant pastime
with the proper amount of exercise
for those who insist on eating meats
three times a day, at the same time
an eever indulgence of rich foods that
require light exercise fur their proper
digestion. The spirit of the times in
all things is for health and a proper
care of the body is one's lir^t consideration.
Strange as it may seem, the public
billiard parlor ������!' the twentieth century is eliminating the bar, and all
wagers "ii the result ui the game' i��
frowned upon by ibe room keeper.
Twenty years ago a billiard table
in a Y M. C. A. building would have
been a jacrilige. Today im V. M. C.
V is complete without ils billiard
room. The green cloth table is now
a welcome addition to the best regulated home, and even the church clubs
are incomplete when tlle pocket billiard   apparatus   is   wauling.
Tlie  strenuous  life uf the  American
especially demands relaxation, 'I'he
less  strenuous  forms oi exercii!   are
preferable. There is nu cause to seek
a further reason iur the large increase
iu the interest shown in Ibis country
in   lhe  me   game.
Aside  from  thc    physical    benefits
there is a menial training iu a billiard
which  is  remarkabl

Through German Spectacles
A Civil Prisoner of War Gives Us Germany's    View    of    the    Great
.   Conflict
During the- lirsl weeks oi the war.
tlu* fceluig againsl Kussi.t was uppermost in the minds ol the Germans.
She- was generally regsrded as the
main instigator of thc war. Panslav-
ism under hcr rulership was the motive of it. The Ccrnians regard hcr
as being in such a state eef barbarism
that they ceeuhl not comprehend England's understanding with her, nor
nor could they comprehend her understanding wilh a Latin race when she
might anil ought i'e have had an alliance with Germany. Por the German
any race which is neet Teutonic is quite
a lower order eef humanity. This has
been se> far many decades, and has
been eme eif the fruitful causes eef disunion  in  Austria.
Then   there   was   genuine   regret   at
the English declaration eif war. which
was regarded as a kind of racial perfidy. Even the most intelligent German will ii*jt see ihat Germany's peel-
icy   feer   years   past   necessarily   was   a
constant menace lo a country iii England's position. He will say lhat Germany had nee intention oi at any lime
seeking tee injure England, and lhat i.s
his eenly answer to the objection that
she was steadily seeking to put herself intee a position in which she would
be able to do so.
The Japanese ultimatum had a violent effect upon the general feeling.
The mere facl that the Japanese, >
yellow race, should have come into a
war between Europeans was regarded as an outrage upon Western civi
lization, which was laid at thc door
of England. .Many who teeeek this view
quite forgol that in the very lirst days
they had expressed pious beliefs, if
not holies, that Japan would take advantage of the war and of the facl
that Russia's debt to her had not yet
been paid off to open fresh hostilities
against   Russia.
The gradual result of these events
has  been   that   during   the   last   weeks
the object of popular sentiment has
changed. Hatred againsl ..ngland has
gone up by leaps and bounds. Pof
England, they say, the  war i.s a base
commercial speculation in the interests of her trade; this has always heen
the scllish policy of the "Kramervolk"
(shopkeepers) which word is now one
eef thc most favored designations of
the English,
The immaculate attitude as regards
tiie outbreak of the war which Germany assumes, and has set forth in a
pamphlet, punlislied also, for the Dene-
lit of America, in the English language, antl very ably compiled, has
not, in fact, quite the basis claimed
for it. Hut the nation, including the
Social Democrats, are tirnilv persuaded that  the  Kaiser did  not  want war.
The Germans never seriously believed that their breach of Belgian
neutrality was the cause of England's
declaration of war. They affect not
to place tlle smallest belief in France's
assurance ihat she would neet disturb
the neutrality, anil ihey say Ileal
1'ieiich troops had in laet urleaely
cnesscd the frontier, and lhat rrenin
officers   were   found   in   Liege.     1 li<-
CompSCl between lhe allies BOl lee conclude any separate peace afforded ih-
disguised disappointment! ami It is regarded as another instance ���>��� ung-
land's cunning selfish policy. inl
then people had confidently spoken ol
a conclusion ����� f the war, resulting Irom
the utter defeat of Prance, in lour eer
live weeks' time. People slill lain
confidently eef a complete ultimate victory for Germany, They speak eef
our prospects almost with pity, saying what a mistaken policy we have
followed, and how greatly wc might
have profited by neutrality; forgetting
ihat thereby we should have laid ourselves vastly more open tee the charge
nl   pursuing  a  mere  selfish   policy  uf
gain,
As the war proceeded ihe Germans
seemed   t'i   awake   In   a   certain   new
conviction that the downfall eef Eug-
laild was at hand. The writer has a
particularly vivid recollection of one
Sunday afternoon, when he overheard
ihe conversation eif iwo young men
standing on lhe steps of the postof-
lice. one eef whom was reading ilu
latest war news. Though being stared al anil pointed out, and noticing
whispering as one approached, ceui-
Stituded some of the innocent unpleasantnesses of the position, in this case
lhe writer hail ne.t been noticed,
"England is going smash!" saiel the
yening man, with his eyes slill mi lhe
newspaper, iu a tune as of sudden
wondering realization. "Must gee
smash," answered  the olher.
Germany is now making great efforts tee win  tiie  enthusiasm  of ihe
Poles, hut she cannot win their o>n-
lidcnce. The oppression by Prussia
of the Polish nationality, not only in
I'lisen bill in Silesia, has been too
great. Tlle Poles, knowing lhe Prussian character, feed they cannot trust
neiw ihe Prussian overtures of freedom. The writer has it freun eene of
their nationality that the Prussian
Poles regard the filling up, since tlle
outbreak e,f the war, ol ihe Archbishopric eef Pieseii. see many years wrongfully kept vacant by Prussia, merely
as a feeble bait.
Declaration of war followed declaration of war till the official placard
ill the postoffices of countries wilh
which communication was broken had
litlle space left. There was a grave
misgiving as lo Italy, which still continues, The Germans are concealing
a resentment against her for her faithlessness of the Triple Alliance. They
do not like to say much as yet, lest
Italy might adopt hostile activity, but
there is little doubt that they hope at
the end of lhe war tei make her feel
that such conduct does not pay.���

SIX   REASONS
WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF
CREOSOTED WOOD
BLOCK PAVEMENTS
ITS DURABILITY���Does not. crumble or pulverize under tlie densest traffic; second only to granite
blocks
ITS EASE OF REPAIR���Xo 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 all germs, prevents the absorption of
street filth and consequent decay.
ITS NOISELESSNESS���The rattle and bang of
vehicles passing over its smooih surface absorbed
and muffled till the quiet of the diu load is obtained.
ITS DUSTLESSNESS���Does not pulverize; the
heaviest traffic only pounding down the wood fibres
to offer the greater resistance.
*TS CLEANLINESS���Having a smooth surface and
being waterprool 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.

Vancouver and Point Grey may whistle for the improvements needed to
develop the districts outside what is
now known as Vancouver.
*    *    *
Another point. Mr. McBride argues that "hy amalgamation of the
three corporations we will save at
least $200,(XX) in administration alone."
I may be dense, but I fail to see where
the saving will be any more than
would he the case hy the formation
of a Greater Vancouver, with one
central body and local councils for
local affairs. Suppose for the sake
of argument that annexation becomes
an accomplished fact. It is certain
that the present city staff would have
to he augmented considerably; and in
all probability most of the present
municipal officials would bc taken op
by "the city." Because it is a reflection on the administrative abilities of
the Vancouver city council to argue
that the staff at the city hall has so
little work to do that it can take over
thc administration of Semth Vancouver and Point Grey in addition to its
present duties.
ef       *       ef
Granting for the sake of argument
that In the event of annexation some
of the present municipal officials
might be dispensed with, thc clerical
staff of the city would have to bc increased, the engineering staff would
require further assistance, the health
department would have te) he augmented, as many police would hc required
in South Vancouver and Point Grey
as there now are, the lire department
would probably be augmented, and
the school staffs would he practically
the  same  as  now,  thus  taking  it  all

round I fail te> see where Mr. McBride is g'eing to effect a saving of
$200,<XI0 in administration alone. In
fact, 1 do not see any saving that
would not be counterbalanced to a
large extent hy the higher pay schedules 'prevailing in Vancouver. Because it is folly to expect that the
present city hall staff is going to undertake the we>rk of administrating
South Vancouver and Point Grey
without   further   assistance.
ele       *       *
In   regard   to   the     "control     over
franchises," which Mr. McBride men
tions iu his letter to thc press, the
franchises could just as easily be controlled by a Greater Vancouver council as hy a Vancouver City Council.
In short, there is no advantage to be
gained by annexation which would
not be gained by the formation of a
Greater Vancouver with local councils for local affairs; but there are
many disadvantages in the centralization of all the affairs of a big rapidly
growing district like Greater Vancouver under the control of one body
elected, as Mr. McBride says, by "the
city vote."
