Board of Trade for  1914
Clears Decks for Business
Snapshots of South  Vancouver
Live Committees have been Appointed and Prospects are good
for Records of another Year of Results
Ninth Vancouver  Board  of Trade
swung in  lini-'   f",r  the  yeiu'-   wnrk at
the- meeting Monday night when many
items uf interest to the municipality's
���welfare were taken up and the committees for tlie- year were struck.
Mr.   J;.   I..   Elliott's   warning :
"The Vancouver city council in barring South Vancouver workmen from
municipal undertakings is directly inviting the creation of slums ant] the
lowering of health conditions.    Over
the  week-end,  the  large  number  of
furniture' vans can) ing the household
goods of local workmen to Vancouver
Das   been   universally    noted,    while
eiwiu-rs of promise! for rent within the
city   have   remarked   at   the   demand
for them.   Our workmen must have!
we.rk. and if tliey have i., move to the J
city to get it,  they move.
"This is directly the reverse of what I
it   should   be.     Workmen   come   out |
into    South    Vancouver    and    build'
home! because they can live cheaper
here.    They  lead  healthy lives.    The
resolution of the city council will only
lead tu a must deplorable congestion
of population."
Thus ipoUe Mr. I'. E. Elliott at the
meeting, and at his instigatinn the
board appointed a committee, of which
AV. J. Allan. .1. C. Wright and R. C.
Hodgson are members, tu confer with
tin- South Vancouver council regarding the matter. The idea was that
tlu local council sheeiild con fer with
tjve city council in an effort to have
affairs changed.
The argument was advanced by Mr.
Elbe'it that it was unjust to draw a
distinction between South Vancouver
and Vancouver worknien, because the
"business of the whole Burrard peninsula was centred in Vancuuver, and
if goods consumed in South Vancuuver were nut purchased retail there,
as they were in large quantities, then
wholesale they were.
The meeting was nf an informal
���nature. The council brought In a
committee slate and recommentation!
dealing with other matters. Regarding the appointment of delegates to
w.-.rk with tbe Fraser Street Improvement Association in getting a permanent bridge across the North Arm,
Secretary Kenneth Lamond was instructed tn inform the association that
the board was in sympathy with the
movement, but was deferring the
matter of delegates to the next regular meeting.
The clearing of all vacant lots in
the municipality was a subject brought
up. but it was decided tn lay it over
���[lending receipt nf information regarding  recent   legislation.
An enquiry concerning tbe opening
for boat works on the Fraser North
Arm was referred to the industrial
committee. The finance and advertising committee was asked tn courier  the advisability  of    issuing    a
booklet letting forth the hi,tory and
growth rn" the board of trade, together with statistic- recording the
progress  of  the  municipality.

Mr. II. li. A. Vogel, well known resilient ni Snuth Vancuuver. Secretary
of the Xnrth Fraser Harbnr Commission,
Mr. Vogel, before coming to Vancouver, lived for many years in Honolulu, and while there it was bis great
privilege tei meet the Stevensmis for
the first time. Mr. Vogel was engaged in the mercantile business at
the lime, connected with a house rif
international mite, one of the large
branches of which was in Honolulu,
He relates ihat during Stevenson's
stay in Honolulu the great literary
man became interested in the ^ work-
being done in a leper colony in the
Islands by a Roman Catholic sisterhood. Su impressed was Stevenson
with the great lelf-sacrifice of the
sisters, that he resolved to do lome
little act of kindness in their behalf.
He therefore approached Mr. Vogel,
swore him to secrecy, and instructed
him  to send to a  celebrated German
piano  manufacturing  concern  fur  the
belt instrument the factory cnuld produce. Mr. Vogel took Stevenson's
order and cheque and the instrument
in due time was received iu Honolulu,
and wa- forwarded to the sisters at
the leper colony, liy the time of
the arrival of the piano, Stcvensun
had left Honolulu. The piano until
this day is in use at the leper colony.

of this paper falls into the hands of
tlle listers in the colony they will not

Here is an absulutely new idea.
When it is put inte. effect remember
that the "Chinook" is tlle mother of
it :
The   name.   Main   Street,   is   not   a
sufficiently dignified name for a thoroughfare so outstanding in the commercial geography of Greater Vancouver. They have a Main Sireet

During the week there was much
ehiiiig in Liberal circles in Snuth Vancouver. At Victoria Road a new
Liberal Association was organized:
at the Main Street Club. Tuesday
wal given over to a concert; at the
South Hill Club, a grand inaugural
concert was held, and a central organization for South Vancouver municipality was perfected at a convention held Monday evening at the corner of Thirty-fifth Avenue and Victoria   Road.
At the convention held at Victoria
Road there was a good turn-out of
Liberals from every quarter of thc
municipality. Collingwood was particularly well represented, a full representation of nine delegates being
A constitution for the central executive was drawn up and the following officer! were elected : Lfonorary
presidents. Sir Wilfrid Laurier and

Liberal leader; Honorary vice-president. Mr. John Oliver; President, Mr.

Donald liurgess; Secretary. M. A.
Mr. G. G, McGeer presided at the
meeting and a constitution was drafted setting forth thc alms and objects
and limitations of thc new body. Representatives from all Liberal Associations ill thc municipality will make
up the executive board and the nr-
anization will be used to promote the
interests of Liberalism in the district to work harmoniously at all
times with the Liberal party in British Columbia.
At the Main Street Club Tuesday
night. Mine host, S. F. Henderson,
had an exceptionally good turn-out
if members. The hall was fairly
.rowded when Messrs. J. H. Scnkler
and   Charles   Macdonald,   two     well-
known   Liberals frum Vancouvei-. and
scarred   veterans  at  that,  arrived.
Mr. Scnkler. win, was the candidate
iu the last Dominion election, dealt
with the Liberal policy of freer trade.
He was of the opinion that the merits
nf reciprocity with the United States
had been absolutely lost sight of in
the last campaign. The election was
��� me of passion and prejudice, in declared. Mr. Scnkler was ready, he
staieel. for lhe tight again, if his services were ever demanded, because in
his belief fighting for the principles
of Liberalism was as noble wnrk as
la man could engage himself in.
Mr.   Macdonald   blended  humor  in
Iwith  his  attack  on    the    Provincial
authorities  for  the  method  in   which
Ithey  have  been  managing the affairs
of the people   if Briti!n Columbia. He

Comptroller of Burnaby Resigns���
Is He Slated for South Vancouver?
Persistent Rumors to the Effect that Local Council Want Services
of Civic Expert Griffith
Considerable interest has been
aroused over the resignation thc
other day of Mr. William Griffith.
Comptroller to the Municipality uf
It had been rumored that the services of Mr. Griffith were beiiv sought
by the council of South Vancuuver.
The Burnaby man is regarded as an
expert in the work of civic government and it is stated that it was
largely eiwing to the ability of Mr.
Griffith for organizing that the municipal hall staff at Edmonds has been
kept up to a high point of efficiency
at a comparatively low coit pf maintenance.
Thursday's "Sun" had the following
Item touching up->n Mr. Griffith's
"Mr.    William   Griffith.     municipal
comptroller of Burnaby, has handed
in his resignation to the council. Nee
deiinite date has been set for his
resignation to take effect, but it will
probably be in about two weeks Mr.
Griffith will open up a business in
New Westminster as a chartered secretary and auditor. He has been in
thc employ of the municipality for thc
last three years and has made many
friends in Burnaby."
Mr. Griffith left the service of the
municipality absolutely voluntarily,
it is asserted, and in the face of considerable protest from the council. It
is known that the South Vancouver
council have heen endeavoring to lt>-
c.ite a man of his abilities for a posi-
ti.en at the Municipal Hall, the creating of which may materially change
the  present organization.
Cedar Cottage Jottings
Miss Carrie Pollard, a former Cedar Ceittage girl, was married on
Wednesday last at the home of her
nn ither at Langley Prairie, to Mr.
George Mathison, also of Langley
Prairie. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Wilson in thc presence of
a large number of guests���many nf
them frnin Cedar Cottage. The bride.
who was attired in soft cream char-
meuse and shadow lace, was given
away by her brother, Mr. Fred Pollard, while Miss Edith Porter acted
as bridesmaid, the groom being supported by Mr. John Bertram After
a delightful wedding repast the happy-
couple departed for a tour of the Ceiast
cities, and upon their return will reside  at  Langley  Prairie.
In St. Columbia Presbyterian
Chinch, .ni the evening of March 25,
under the auspices of lhe Cedar Ceittage Political Equality League, a most
interesting public meeting was held,
the principal speakers being Mrs.
Ralph Smith and Mr. Cowper of the
"Province" editorial staff. Mr. Sam
Jackson acted as chairman, and there
were artists of merit on the well arranged musical program. Mr. Jackson maele a very able chairman, expressing himself as being iu entire
sympathy with the object of the league, and predicting inevitable success.
Mr, Jackson gave it as bis opinion
that the spirit which opposed the enfranchisement of women on the same
terms as men was the same spirit
which had in days gone by opposed
the locomotive and clung to the old
stage coach���the same spirit which
steadfastly opposed all progress.
Mr. Cowper. who is a brilliant and
forceful speaker, held the close attention of thc audience, while in a general wav hc dealt with the arguments
offered'bv the anti-suffragists as to
why women should not have the vote
���"flimsy arguments'' he termed them
���He spoke of tbe eternal quest for
some really sensible valid argument
against equal suffrage and thc inability to discover one impregnable unanswerable reason against this world-
Side movement. Even though women wcre the fools some would have
us believe, he quoted Mrs. Poyser as
autheiritv that "God made 'em to
match the men." Men did not always
use the ballot wisely and the fact that
women   might  not  do  so  was  not a
valid argument against the cause. Mr.
Cowper   read   and   criticised     in     an
amusing and satirical manner a lengthy   letter   containing   alleged   unanswerable arguments against equal suffrage, written by Lady Glasgow, wife
of a former GoverttOT-General of New-
Zealand,   and   printed   in   lhe  London
"Times."  anel   made  il   char   linn   the
gnod lady's arguments and assertions,
though doubtless sincere, were unsubstantial   and   self   contradictory���her
letter being full of glaring anomalies.
���Lady Glasgow asserted that the women did not want the vote and we mid
not  use  it  if they   had  it, yet   in   the
same  paragraph  she  goes  em   tei  say
that if Ihey were given the ballot so
many women Would vote they would
have the Government of the  day  at
their mercy and would probably have
the   whole  country  involved  in   war.
Mrs.   Ralph   Smith   was   her   usual
interesting  and  witty  self  and  made
an   excellent  address  on  the  laws  of
Pi. C. insofar as they concern women
and   children���laws   "quaint   and   peculiar" to quote Mr. Cowper.   If there
were   any  present   in   doubt     as     to
whether or  not   the women  of   B.   C.
needed the vote, they were doubtless
billy convinced of the importance and
urgency   of   the   equal   suffrage   question,   especially   in   British   Columbia.
The regular meeting of the Ladies'
Guild of St. Margaret's parish met on
Wednesday at the home of Mrs. Palmer on 21st Avenue, when considerable routine business was transacted,

Jetty on North Arm of Fraser
Will Soon Be Continued
Mr. R. Abernethy, Chairman of North Frater Harbor Board,
Announced that Work on Main Jetty of North Arm a*
Proposed in Original Outline Would Soon be Under Way---
Delay in Granting Appropriation.
Chairman Abernethy of the North
Fraser Harbnr Hoard reported to a
representative of this paper that tlie
work on the jetty al lhe mouth of
the North Arm of the Fraser River
would he started in the very near
future and be carried on by thc Public Works department with the Commissioners, through their engineers,
acting as an advisory board. The
tenders for this work were called
last fall but for some reason or another were not considered and the
forfeit checks returned to the tenderers. Fresh tenders for thc works
will bc advertised for and proving
satisfactory, the work will be continued   this  spring.
In referring to thc rumor circulated some time ago that the Harbor
Commissioners intended cutting
across the end of Sea Island to the
midille arm Mr. Abernethy said there
was nothing in the rumor at all. While
eene could never tell just what the
ultimate work of the commission
would embrace, yet the first wnrk
would be the North Arm of the
Point Grey, he stated had agreed
to pay their share of the money asked
feer by the Board I" carry een the preliminary   work   necessary   to   submit
iee the government.   The municipali-
lies of S'eiith Vancouver and Rich.
nueiid were yet to be heard from and
Hurnaby to be interviewed. The
ready support oi these municipalities
would do much to hurry the work
contemplated, as the delay made for
holding up ihe permanent work which
[he Commissioners intended applying feer and which ceiuld only be consented to by the government on it being put up tee them in a most complete
and  comprehensive manner.
The commissioners readily understood the position the municipalities
were in regarding the shortage of the
supply of money, but thc fact that big
development work was contemplated
on the North Arm would have a very
beneficial effect in inducing industries
to start. In this way the prospects
of an increased number of industries,
which would mean an increase in thc
pay roll distribution, should be a factor worthy of consideration and one
which should influence the municipalities to speedy action, regarding the
grant tee the North Fraser Harbor
Industries are Coming to
Banks of North Fraser Harbor
Equipment Now Installed in Capacious Premises Which Have
Largest Floor Space of a Similar Industry on Continent
���Patterns and Castings for Safes of Standard Size Are
Already Prepared���Plant Occupies Six Acres
That the North Arm of the Fraser
River is the logical point for the location of industries is being more and
more recognized every day. \\ ith
the improvement of the river at the
hands of the North Fraser Harbor
Commission, this fact will be more
forcibly driven into the minds of
manufacturers���both Eastern men
and those who already have factories
in  Greater Vancouver.
"The space our plant at present
occupies," said a large manufacurer
of sewer piping and other materials
of that character, to a representative
of the "Chinook" some days ago,
"fronts on False Creek. Its valuation
is $1,000 per foot at present* That
property is too expensive for our
Asked where, in his opinion, there
was a better and cheaper site for his
industry in British Columbia, this
manufacturer stated : "Over there
with you people in South Vancouver.
The North Arm of thc Fraser is the
logical   spot   for   our   factory."
Whether this concern already has
a site on the North Arm is difficult
to say. Possibly the manager is at
present looking for a location.
The Dominion Safe Works Limited,
have started actual work at their plant
at Bridgeport, Lulu Island, on the
North Arm afer a delay of over a
year. The building, which is the
largest under one roof on the American' continent, used for the manufacture of safes was started early in
January of last year.
Six acres of land was secured by
the company from R. D. Rorison and
Son, alongside the Lulu Island branch
of the B.C. Electric Railway and quite
close to the main road to Vancouver.
The building which are  of    frame
construction covered with metal
sheeting have a floor space of 41,700
square feet and are divided into a
number of departments.
Thc company have already installed the most of the machinery needed for tlle manufacture of their product and' are sufficiently advanced so
that they are carrying on their own
machine work necessary in installation of the balance of the machinery,
all of which is either in the plant or
on the way.
Patterns for a number of the standard sizes of safes were made last
year and' a stock of castings, made
in British Columbia, have already
been stocked and are at present being machined in the newly equipped
All machinery in the plant is operated by electricity. In the emery
room, the machines are already in
place. Drills, lathes and other equipment are also in place and hooked
up so that they can be operated at
will. A paint shop and carpenter
shop which includes its own saws and
planers is another department which
is  ready  for use.
Mr. R. D. Rorison, the president,
stated that the company had already
secured a number of contracts and
had others pending. In connection
with the manufacture of the ordinary
fire and burglar proof safes, the Dominion Safe Works will manufacture
vaults, vault doors and safety deposit
boxes as well as turned steel work.
Thc entire work to date has been
under- Ike-- direct supervision of Mr.
Gef. J. H. Goeghlcr, a pioneer in the
manufacture of safes and vaults. *
The company is owned by local

Research   Follow!   American   Name
Back to  Dutch Thaler!
The word dollar is thc English
form of thc German word thaler The
origin eif the thaler is as follow! :
In the year 1519 Count Schlick. eef
Bohemia, issued silver ceiins weighing one ounce each and worth 113
cents. They were coined at Joachi-
mistal, that is James valley ejr dale,
in Bohemia; hence, they became known
as Joachimstalers, soon shortened
into thalers. On each coin was the
figure of St. James. Through trade
with the Dutch these coins came into
England in the sixteenth century and
are referred to sometimes as "dealers." The word dtdlar is found in
Shakespeare's "Macbeth." Act 1,
scene 2.

But thc dollar came to the American continent not through the Dutch
or English, but through the Spanish.
This was due to the extent of the
seventeenth centuries and also to the
great quantities of silver which Spain
drew from her mines in Mexico and
South America.
Tlle Spanish coin was strictly speaking, a peso, better known as a piece
of eight, because it was equal to eight
reals (royals). As it was of the same
value, thc name dollar was given to
the piece of eight about the year 1690.
The most famous Spanish dollar
was known as the pillar dollar, because it had on one side two pillars,
representing the  pillars  of  Hercules,
the.' classical name for flic Straits of
Gibraltar. It had also the motto "plus
ultra." The old form of this was "ne
plus ultra," but owing tei Columbus'
disiovery of America, this had to bc
changed. This dollar was known as
the cannon dollar by the Moors, who
mistook the pillars for cannon.
It is thought by some that the two
pillars in this dollar are the origin of
the upright lines in Ihe dollar mark.
Other suggestions are that the mark
represents F. S.���that is the Spanish
peso, or possibly U. S. combined.
Must probably, however, it represents the sign of the Roman unit of
money, tlie sestertius The sign was
"H. S." and meant two and a half,
because a sestertius was equal to 2'/2
asses; the "as" being another Roman
The Spanish dollar was current for
a time even in Australia; it was common in America at the time of the
war  of  independence.
Champion Eaters
The other day J. T. Harris, of
Boulder. Col., trieil to win a $10
wagon by devouring a dinner that
had been prepared for a family of 12.
He is reported to have attacked at
table a 15-pound turkey with oyster
dressing, three loaves of bread, six
sweet potatoes, two bunches of celery, four dishes of cranberry sauce,
one glass of mint jelly, six bananas
with cream, one pound of butter, one
order of squash, two mince pies, and
two dishes of plum pudding with
brandy sauce and six cups of coffee.
Hc had reached the mince pie stage
when he fell to the floor unconscious.

The  Main Street Paving Question
It is now over a fortnight since the
niajority of the council decided that
it was best in tlie- interests of the
municipality that they should go
ahead  with  the contract.
Since the council took up this stand
quite a lot of people have changed
their mind een the advisability of proceeding  with  the  work.
Their main objection, of course,
was thc fact that the contract had
neit been open to tender. That fact
allowed tlie- opposition who were
against the paving no end of rope in
their arguments against tlie paving
and of course innuendo! alleging

commencing tei think that after all
perhaps this is not such an "iniquitous" contract as they were lead to believe.

Our position is that the work is
necessary, if feir no other reason than
that it will provide work for a battalion of men who otherwise would have
to go  without.

read. As there were organizations
enough with sufficient voting strength
that signified a readiness to affiliate
and g., ahead with tlle work, it was
decided to call another meeting for
Monday night. April 6th, in Labor
Temple. At this session a fixed com-
mittee will be duly organized : (1)
composed ot representatives of national, international or local trades
Unions, of any other wejrking class
party e,r association, who may be
deemed worthy of affiliation. (2) The
electoral committee will be constituted, composed of two members from
each union for each 100 members or
less, anel nnc for each additional 100
members eer niajejr fraction thereof,
up t'i live members. (3) The executive committee will ce>mprise not
more than seven members chosen
from   the   electoral   committee.
A lengthy statement of the aims
anil objects of thc league was given
by J. Wilton at the last meeting of
Local No. 226 of the Typographical
Union. The Union decided to give
their supp'irt both morally and financially.
For the benefit ol those in doubt

propose to confine its activities to

The Co-operative Store
Among the many old country men

big  property  owners   making  a   kick
���but   why   sheeiilil   the   worker   concern  himself about that.    These men
benight   their   real   estate   at   bottom
price and since then, through the medium   of   the  worker   coining  in   and I
settling,  its  value  has     increased     to ���
three and four hundred per cent, more I
than they paid feir it.
They do not want any more taxa- [
tieeii during this time when their j
property is not producing any revenue eer when they cannot sell it at their |
own extortionate price. Therefore
they are against anything which will :
mean  an  addition  on  their tax bill.
They are the men that howl and i
the pity is that thc workers too often i
Kit  led by the nose by that gang.

SATURDAY,  APRIL 4.   1914
AFTER having spent many hundreds of dollars and many months of roughing it in
the bush, three Vancouver ladies, sisters, located on adjoining claims in the Lillooet \ alley. They performed all the duties laid down by the Lands Department at
Victoria and enthused with the belief that each was a landed proprietor, these girls, with
the stout hearts of pioneers, set to work to have their properties cleared, for the land laid
well, was well watered and in every respect good fanning land.
The work of clearing proceeded and in the staking, purchase.price and development of the property, the young women spent together with all their saving, moneys
loaned them by their widowed mother. But was it not worth while? Were they not to
have each a farm of H>0 acres?.
To this property they could move from the stuffy cily flat and from the high cost
of living. Here thev could keep cows and horses and sheep and pigs and with careful
management in a few years would be independent.
In the midst of all the planning and day-dreaming came a thunderbolt in the way
of a letter from Hon. Mr. Bowser, stating that the land in block so and so, range so and
so, which had been taken up by the three ladies, had been previously staked. The
ladies would therefore vacate forthwith and save further trouble on the part of the
Government of the Province of British Columbia.
Investigation revealed the fact that the property in question was on the right-of-
wav of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway. It was level land, naturally drained, high
and dry. It was needed by the Pacific and Great Eastern Railway for townsite purposes. The Pacific and Great Eastern Railway wanted that land and didn't want to
pay for it. So the McBride Government drove the young women who would have cleared and cultivated the property back to their positions in the Vancouver business district.
The property in question will be turned into a townsite. Lots in this townsite���

The ladies in question have pleaded with the Government for their rights in thc
matter, but with no good results. They have spent all their money and have not the
funds necessary to employ counsel to take their case into the courts. It is likely that
they have broken-hearts as well as broken bank accounts.
Facts touching upon this case were obtained from two members of the council of
South Vancouver who have requested that the names of the young ladies be withheld
for the present. It is probable that in the wildest days of the land stampede to Oklahoma there was no instance of claim-jumping which would quite parallel the one referred to. ���,,,,���
Scores of complaints have been made throughout the province of land-stealing
on the part of the Government in behalf of party friends. The Lillooet case may be
taken as a fair example of what the present administration will do when put to it.

"The truth at aU timet firmly stands
And  alu.ll  Item  age to act endure."
IN British Columbia today there are hundreds of
stout hearted men, who, if they were able to reach
thc scat of trouble in Ireland, would readily take up
arms under the leadership of the "King of Ulster,"
Sir Kdward Carson,
These men have fought many a political battle for
Sir Richard McBride. It might be said that Sir Richard went into power on the crest of a wave of opportunity, lie has been kept in power largely through j
the splendid assistance at all times given him by the
"Ulstermen" of British Columbia, of whom many
of the leaders may be found right here in South Vancouver.
Xow, T. P, O'Connor passed through Vancouver
a little time ago. collecting money for the big fight for
Home Rule. Tay Pay was entertained, during his
visit in Victoria, by Sir Richard McBride. Sir Richard made contributions to the Home Rule fund which
T. P. O'Connor got together in Canada. At a public
meeting of Vancouver Irishmen the names of contributors were read out. Sir Richard's name was on
the list and opposite it���$50.00.
Some time ago. Mr. William Redmond, M.P., another hot blooded Nationalist, visited the coast. Sir
Richard McBride made a special effort to see Mr.
Redmond. He sought an interview with him on the
boat and spent some time conferring with the British
M. P. in private.
Yet the Orangemen have fought the battles of Sir
Richard with might and main every time he has come
before the electorate.
It is conjectured that Sir Richard's unusual courtesy
to the Nationalist parliamentarians during their visits
to the Province and his contributions to the Home Rule
funds develop from a desire to "get in right" with the
Liberal Party in England. With the endorsement of
the Liberal Government over there, his candidature
for the position made vacant by the death of Lord
Strathcona is placed in a most favorable light.
FORTY South Vancouver families are arranging
to leave shortly for Northern Alberta, where
they will take up homesteads. This may seem alarming; but it's a fact and the families who are leaving
are among the most progressive and intelligent citizens in the municipality. ' ' ^
One of the men recently gave up business in South
Vancouver. The heads of the other families are
largely business men who have resolved that back on
the land is the proper place for themselves and their
It is regrettable that these forty families should be
forced to go outside the boundaries of the Province
for land. It is explained, however that farming land
in British Columbia, if iu anywise attractive to settlers,
is held at such an exorbitant price that it would take
a fortune to handle one quarter section of it.
The Alberta Government is giving the South Vancouver people a better deal than they can hope to get
in British Columbia���this in spite of the fact that
these people have been residents of this province for
many years and have large investments here.
It is a pity that these families must leave. British
Columbia will be the poorer for their going. They
will be back; but it will be some years from now and
when they come it will be to spend thc winters.
By running the same matter once in local publications, the cost would be approximately $200 and the
'etter of the law, it is asserted, would be fully carried
Assuming this to bc the fact. $1,800 might be
>aved to the people of South Vancouver���$1,800
which could be devoted to the solving of the many
real problems before the council at the present moment.
Reeve Dickie and the members of the council were
not (low to see that lhe promiscuous advertising of the
Municipality's money bylaws iu all city newspapers
was an absolute waste of money. Thev decided to
cut down the number of city newspapers to one, and
to use as well two local publications.
Thus, mure than S 1.000 is being saved the district on this one item, and possibly the entire cost
might have been further reduced.
In older communities situated as South Vancouver
is. adjacent to a large city, the local weekly newspaper
invariably proves itself a valuable factor in the community, furnishing a low-priced and effective medium
for all local advertisers, including indeed the corporation council, and serving the community well along
much broader lines.
THAT the Municipality of South Vancouver has
squandered many tens of thousands of dollars
in the past in the advertising of the various money
bylaws came to light Monday when the question of
arranging the statutory advertising of the school bylaws shortly to be put before the people came up for
The Municipal Act clearly states that the municipal
money bylaws shall be advertised in at least one recognized newspaper, circulating in the district, for ten
days previous to the day of voting.
In Municipalities where no daily paper circulates,
the letter of the law is carried out by inserting copy of
the bylaw in a weekly or semi-weekly publication with-
n the district concerned.
In South Vancouver, it has been the policy in the
past to jam these statutory advertisements into any
or all the Vancouver city dailies, ignoring those weekly newspapers published within the district and circulating in the district.
Considering that the daily newspaper charge on
these legal advertisements is $1.40 per inch per insertion, the cost of advertising South Vancouver's bylaws in the past has run into enormous figures.
It was recommended to the council that the bylaws
to lie voted upon April 11 be published for len clear
days in two Vancouver dailies���and not once in the
papers published locally. The approximate cost of
publication in either the dailies or weeklies would be
$100.00 per insertion.
It was recommended, therefore that South Vancouver pay for ten insertions in two city dailies���over

EX-COUNCILLOR F. E. Elliott's alarm that Vancouver's discrimination against the workmen of South

of life in South Vancouver will doubtless continue to

ADDRESSING THE Winnipeg Advertising Club,
Mr. W. R. Ingram, of the Swift Canadian Packing
Company, said the price of beef in Western Canada
would be up to a dollar a pound in a few years if
ronditions were not changed. Mr. Ingram defended
the packers against the charge of responsibility for the
high cost of living. Western Canada stood at the
top of the list as a meat-eating country and against
this stood the fact that Western Canada daily faced
an increasing population without an increasing supply
of livestock.

"Dismissed Hell With Costs"
Manchester Guardian
It is the fashion of the present century to deride-
the Victorian age as dull and self-complacent. But
the truth is that, intellectually, the Victorian age was
much more intensely alive than the present. And
there was plenty of excitement. The theories of Lyell
and Darwin revolutionized religious thinking, and the
revolution was one that mattered; it was seriously regarded by men oil both sides, and something seemed
to be at stake. Still there was some wit expended
Upon the situation. One of the best examples of this
was the epitaph composed for Lord Westbury, wheir
thc Judicial Committee of the Privy Council refused
to sustain the judgment of suspension against two of
the authors of thc famous "Essays and Reviews." They
were clergymen of the Church of England, and Lord
Westbury's judgment was that the Thirty-nine Articles
do not require belief in eternal punishment. The
words of the epitaph were these: "Toward the end
of his earthly career he dismissed Hell with costs, and
took away from orthodox members of the Church of
vigland their last hope of everlasting damnation."

W'e carry as large a stock of high grade caskets
as will be found in the city, and our prices arc
lower than can be obtained from any other Undertaker. The volume of business that we are

the end of ropes and leave them there
until nothing remains but the bones,
which they then gather and hang from
the routs of iheir huts.
It is a common custom for a relative to sit by thc hour and watch the
bones of some relative. This is the
way they have of showing their love
and   respect
The bodies are treated in this fashion so that the evil spirits cannot
tease and pinch them. All that is
left arc the dried bones, and these are
.placed high so that if the evil spirits
'wander into llie huts tliey will have
a hard time U> tind them. If a bone
is carried away it means some kad
spirit bas seized it. and this means
that sonic terrible calamity will befall
thc  family.

laid to rest with dancing and rejoicing because tliey are going to rule
over a higher sphere their relatives
and friends do not depart until they
leave one or more chairs and a supply
of clothes. This is done because the
souls are expected to come out and
wander   about  Iheir   graves.

A   minister   is   defending   his   estimates, the  liiin-e  is in committee on
supply.    The  minister dues not need I
any lirillia-t or stragetic defence, the
attack   is   desultory.     Besides,   when
the minister is nt all hard pressed hc
llwayi falls hack nn his deputy,    lie
tis   the   gentleman   who  sits   in   front
I of  his  chief,  with  the  wad  of  paper

i department,  he  doesn't  say  anything
above  his  breath,  hut  the    minister
weiuld look like a man in deep water
| without a Iif'.' preserver if thc deputy
were   not   there.
Somebody 'en the opposition side
j asks how many stamps were sold at
Skeesick's Cornjrs P. O. last year,
and what is the salary of the plutocrat
who occupies tlle position of postmaster and why.
The minister blushes for his ignor |
ance, whispers to his deputy and that
encyclopaedic individual gives the
count Ot the stamps and says thc postmaster gets $50 per annum. Op-
peesitiiin curiosity is satisfied. Gallery birds lean hack in their seats
with a sigh of relief.
Those Awful Spoils
Sometimes Mr. Opposition Member
asks why the postmaster of Spodnuk
was dismissed. This time the minister boldly answers himself. "Partis
sanship" is the strange and startling
wor<l he utters. The opposition member gasps. What devilishness will thc
government charge opposition supporters with next. They cast strange
look** at one another that brood no
good to the government. "Let it beware. Let it beware," they seem to
say.   ���
Sir Wilfrid Enters
Things arc going on at this tremendous rate when Sir Wilfrid Laurier enters. Hc has done this before.
He, take! his seat. He has done this
before;    Hut the Liberals always seem
see it in a different way to the government.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier sneezes. He
sneezes into his handkerchief. He
does it again. He looks at his handkerchief.     It   is   still  there.
The Honorable the Premier, R. L-
Borden, sneezes. He does it again,
teeei. But then he never does it like
Sir  Wilfrid.
For three days or more this duel
of sneezin'g has gone ori. Nobody
knows what it means but it has occurred. The leaders sneeze in the
presence of each other.
Disturbs Sleepers
But their sneezing only serves to
make the snoozing members stir uneasily in their sleep. There are always-snoozing members in the evening and very often in  the day.
These men sleep alone with a desert of vacant chairs about them. You
see they came into the house with
somebody and that person has basely deserted them while they slept.
Such villainies are practised even in
Of Blue Books
But the sneezing and the sleeping
will not stop the house from considering these estimates.
They have arrived at a discussion
of the cost of printing reports of the
department. the member for Edmonton, Mr. Oliver, is always fairly
busy as a critic. He'asks many questions in many wor^s. He wants to
know what he is expected to do with
so many reports. He says an official
comes every morning with a cart
load .of books through the corridors
and insists on dumping the contents
into his, the member for Edmonton's
room. It does not occur to the member for Edmonton that thc official
may bc engaged in the kindly task of
helping the member for Edmonton to
improve his mind. Mr. Oliver overlooks that and wants to know if he
should not he permitted to choose his
own reading.
Here rises a champion of higher
education via the Blue Book school,
David Henderson, M.P., for Halton.
He explains that he sends all hit
blue books to his constituents. Por
instance the Fisheries report can he
sent to the constable, the Criminal
and Statistic! to the preacher. Public
Works to tlie caretaker of the town
hall. Railways and Canals to the fence
viewer. These were only a few examples of the way hc keeps his constituents informed. The people always welcomed these joyous messages of his good will. They furnished elevating subjects of debate and
convert&tiotl eluring the winter evenings.
Burnham on Guard
Burnham of Peterboro, is the most
faithful member in the house. Through
the excitement of such a day and
evening he sits in a philosophic attitude in his seat on the left hand
eef the Speaker. Hc is one of the government supporters who sit on thc
Liberal side. But his faithfulness is
admirable. You could see that he
was watching the discussion. Let one
word of disloyalty fall from the lips
of a member on either side and Burnham is metophorically at his throat.
The.' member for Peterboro is al-,
ways performing a flank movement]
een the opposition. Tt's the advantage
e-.f his position. It's extremely disconcerting to a gentleman of the
fourth row back calibre of Liberal
oratory who is training his deadly
eloquence on the enemy in front to
have a missile hurled past his ear
from behind by Burnham of Peterboro.
Those Tar Sands
Frank Oliver of Edmonton is among
the heavy artillery of the Liberal attack, but he doesn't seem to be choke-
bored. You expect a sudden flash
from such a slow-moving piece. Instead he often goes off with the suddenness of a piece of punk.    He hits
thc mark of course, but Slowly.
Sometimes he seems to shoot like one
eif those popguns with a string to the
bullet. It is drawn back again, pushed into the gun, and a second discharge  made  with  deliberation.
He was calling the attention eif the
minister of mines te> certain tar sands
in Alberta which he thought would
he useful in road building "I am
not suggesting that the government
should go into the building <>f roads
with these tar sands," he said, "but
there may be some value in these
tar sands as a medium for mad making. These tar sands are there, and
I think the government should find
out if these tar sands lend themselves
tei the purposes of road making. The
government need not lay roads with
these tar sands, but the government
should feel that it is under an obligation to the people to do something
to find out whether these tar sands
have a road making value." The
minister accepts.
Graham Again
Now George P. Graham, of Renfrew South is not like that. He is
brilliance, all wit. On the tar
sand question he delivers himself
"The government should put footprints on the tar sands of time."
Thereupon he gets quite red in the
face, coughs, chokes, puts his head
down on his arms and works off the
fit with his face hidden for a moment, then signals to a boy for water.
When he has sufficiently recovered
he looks airly at the gallery. Naughty,
irrepressible George, to disturb the
dignity of parliament in  this  way.
Besides, everybody is so sorry when
adjournment comes, because George
may have another bon mot still unexpressed.

There will be general sympathy with
the purpose of Mr. Andrew Broder,
M.P., and those who are co-operating
with Iii iii in his war on the cigarettes
as used by" the foolish boy. We do
not need the abundance of medical
testmony as to the mischief which
this silly practice'works on the health
f the victims���it is quite obvious.
Every parent in Canada i^ strongly
opposed to permitting his son to
smoke tobacco in any form until lie
reaches an age when it can,,be done
without ias:ing harm to his still itn
mature body. .��,���,>
The especial evil of the cigarette,
says an eastern contempsrary, is that
it has put smoking within the easy
reach of boys. They would not have
tried a pipe; and they could not afford cigars. But the suspicious cheapness of the cigarette has made it possible for every errand-boy in the city
to keep himself supplied .with
"smokes"; and he takes to the practice quite naturally in his eagerness
to look like a grown-up young man
as soon ac possible. All healthy boys
have this desire; and the cigarette has
become for them the outward or visible sign of their maturity.
The law against the sale of cigarettes to boys under sixteen, should
be enforced; and the penalties might
well be made so heavy that no merchants would dare risk their application. That is the cure for most crimes
of this sort���crimes difficult of detection; punish them, when proven,
with the greatest severity. Make the
risk the punishment so enormous that
no sane man will take it. In Japan,
they punish the parents, too. That
might well be tried in Canada; for the
parents are very largely to blame.
The proper parental authority would
relieve the state of thc necessity for
a lot of this vexatious and often ineffective legislation.���Winnipeg "Tribune."

"But just the same while they hael

the hero, was the lover that all the

was the kind of girl that every farmer's boy in thc country had picked
out for his. People read it anil lived
it. Mothers used to say to their children : 'Xow Harold (Genevieve, as
case might me) wouldn't dee anything like that,' and the kids were
patterned after the couple. Jesse's

C. P. R.  Ramifications
The C. 1'. K. owns or controls  18,-
000 miles of railway. Its own system is comprised of 13,280 miles, and
the Minneapolis and Duluth roads account feer some 4,000 miles eef track.
It has still aboul 700 miles of spur
lines and extensions tei build in the
west; but the double tracking will
mean a job, totaling over 4.IXKI miles
of railway. This as it geet^ on will
deplete tlle treasury more eer less;.but
freim this great undertaking large
things   are   expected.      The     double
1 racking of the system will give such
reliefs as Heme but a railway man
could fully understand. The difference in the mere physical operation of
thc trains will be enormous; but the
chief consideration is let be in readiness for the vast increase in business
which will disclose itself almost immediately.
A C. P. R. official being asked what
became of all the thousands of immigrants passing over the lines to
the west every year, replied : "Lost
in the bigness."
"But that is not right," he added.
"They are far from lost; they are all
right; but while we do neit see them
they are busy extending the wheat
acreage: they are busy feeding Europe; they arc busv making money;
they are busy making more business
for us with every additional acre they
place  under  cultivation.
"And that is something the people
do not understand. Because they do
not make a bulk, we think that they
are of small account in the worlel.
"Every year sees thc wheat acreage extending and every extension,
though it be only a few thousand
acres, makes more business for the
"In five years from now Canada
will he literally the granary of the
world according to the prediction of
the late Lord Strathcona. It is this
that justifies, that demands in fact,
the double-tracking of the system, so
that it will bc able to handle the enormous increase of business which will
develop during the next autumn."

Kditoc ("Chinook" :
Sir,���I was greatly interested in the
article of last week headed "The Cry
for Food." It was evidently from
the pen of some one who has in his
heart some love for and some care
of his fellow man. It is a most astonishing fact that few persons will
listen to the pitiful pleading of those
who daily are compelled to see their
wives in rags and their children unfed. In a great many cases these men,
��� rdinarly good citizens, and prosper-
eeus, have been lured to this province,
and, once here, have been inveigled
into buying a little piece of land���
justi a few feet��� in order that they
may save paying rental for shelter.
Nothing, I believe, will make a man
more desperate, more determined,
than tee see his family in need of the
i'oniine.n necessities of life. There
comes to him a feeling of dumb helplessness that is unexplain.ible. He
wants to weerk; is anxious to work;
if only a pittance is received as remuneration���anything, to that he can
go to his humble abode at the close
if the day. bearing something for
those whom lie loves. Hut to be
forced to return day after day, meeting the mute appeal of his children
and the silent, inquiring gaze of his
wife, after a time becomes unbearable,
and his manhood becoming aroused,
he soon decides in his heart to take
by force that which he has asked for
in meekness and fear.
This is a subject that all have talked about, many have written about,
and. as your editorial states, "the
problem is not a local one, nor purely provincial." It encircles thc globe.
Men wonder why this is so. And
well they may, for there is every evidence that it will get worse before
it will get better. Man cannot give
i satisfactory explanation. Hc can
only give an opinion, and even that
must  be  revised  frequently.
I believe in this connection there
is a depth of meaning in thc words
of the sacred Rook which tells us that
at a certain time in the world's history the wealth of thc world will be
hoarded by a few. that it will be cankered and rusted; that the hire of thc
laborers has been kept back by fraud,
and their cries of woe and distress
has come to the Lord (James 5V
As conditions arc extraordinary,
we must look for extraordinary causes.
I believe these things are clearly
brought to view in God's word. In
spite of the fact that man's eternal
<lestiny is at stake, very few have a
<lesirc to know what the Lord has
told us in His message to the world
for this time. The great apostle,
Peter, in his second book, third chap-
"Every Man His Own Lawyer"
Thi- sign in a shop window aelver-
tlting tome compendium of law caught
my eye in a Portage Avenue shop
the other elay and reminded me of
a story, told mc many years ago. of
the late Sir John Macdonald's office
in King-ton and tlie mi-chief which
came of one man trying to be a law-j
yer without the necessary training!
tee deal with the intricacies of that
learned profession. There was a highly respected man in one of the country districts round aboul Kingston,
a leading farmer, a mall of substance
and sound judgment, clerk of his
township and serving his friends and
neighbors in many ways. H
frequently called on to draw up simple' contract! and had made the wills
of many of his neighbors. Some of
these wills in the passing of the years
had come lo probate and had been
all   right.
Sir John Macdonald was at that
time just in political life and beginning to make his mark as a member
of parliament, and. the farmer citizen admiring him greatly, went to
visit him in hit law office at Kingston, and as the two men had many
mutual tastes they became friends.
Sir John, iu his hearty, genial way.
teeld the farmer to make use of his
office when hc came to Kingston, and
lhe farmer dropped in from time to
lime. and. attracted by the array of
law books, began to read them, and
many of the legal phrases caught and
held his fancy. As he was so often
asked to make wills, the law of wills
appealed to him especially, and he
not only read, but noted down, some
of the phrases he thought would be
useful and began employing I hem in
the wills he afterwards made. He
never thought to ask his legal friend
what some of these sonorous sentences might really mean. Time went
on, and apparently while a number
of people in his district called upon
the farmer to make their wills, none
of them died. They were a hardy
lot in those days and did not pass out
for anything much but old age. Some,
of course, died, and the will was read
and the family abided by what father
said and never troubled their heads
to probate it; others probated the
wills, but not wanting to sell or divide the landed property, nothing
happened. One day, however, a man
who had inherited a farm under one
of the wills drawn by the farmer wanted to sell it and found to his horror
that the land was entailed. The case
made a great stir, and the matter was
looked into and it was found that in
all the wills made by the farmer,
after his visits to the law office, he
had by tlie use of some phrase entailed the property^. There were a large
number of farms tied up in this way.
Of course, where makers of the wills
were still living, the documents were
destroyed and no harm was done, but
in possibly a score of instances the
makers of the wills were dead, and
their sons found themselves with
land which tney could not sell until
their oldest son might be of age and
combine with them to break the entail.
This tale is not without ils moral.
It is not always necessary or possible
to employ a qualified lawyer to make
out a contract of a will, though, wherever it is possible, it is usually money
saved in the end to do so, but everyone should beware of using phrases
which, while they sound fine, may
have a meaning quite different from
what  the user of them intended.
In these days almost any document
in the handwriting of the testator,
whieh appears to clearly express hit
wishes iu regard tee bis property, will
answer feer a will. If it is not in thc
handwriting of the maker, then it
rnutl be duly witnessed by two entirely disinterested parties. Contracts
of any kind simply stated in plain,
everyday English arc. generally speaking, geioel in law. but the great trouble
today is with contracts printed in fine
type, hard to read, and with, too
often, a joker in them. More than
half of the tremble over farm machinery contracts comes from this very
s.mrce. The different provinces are
seeking a remedy in providing a uniform form of contract and in other
ways, but about the most expensive
patthr.c any man or woman can en-
gag; in is trying to save money by
"being  their  own   lawyer."

Westminster   Church   Football   Club
Westminster Presbyterians suffered
their first defeat for five weeks from
I'airview nn Saturday at their ground
by 2 goals to 1. Xot that the latter
team were superior, but they were
more aceustomed to the short narrow ground. They started right away
and scored their two goals in the first
ten minutes of the game. Westminster then warmed lo their work and
Stephen scored. In the second half
there was only one team in it and
that was not Fairview. Westminster
played their hardest to draw level and
had thc hardest ot luck un several
occasions. They also had a penalty
hut Stephen who took tlie kick struck
the. upright. They retired defeated
as above. Westminster who were
without three of their regular team
never settled down on the short pitch
which is only adapted for school boys.
Westminster meet All Saints, Saturday in their last league game on
neutral ground. As this game will
have some hearing on the Church
League championship, both teams are
pretty equally matched, each having
a win to their credit. Both play a
good game and both are confident of
victory. Should the Presbyterians
play up to their usual form and wilh
the following team the points should
come to South Vancouver: March, D.
Suttie. Dickson. McColm. Dakers,
Gascoyne, Harper (Capt.). J*. Suttie,
Stephen, Smylie, Wilkie. Reserves���
