South Vancouver Honor Roll
Remember Men at the Front
Interesting Patriotic Service Held in Westminster Presbyte
Church
The following is an extract from i
sermon preached by Rev. Mr. Craig
at Westminster Presbyterian Church
last Sunday evening. The occasion
was the presentation of a roll e.,f honor of the men wh., have left this vicinity to fight for their King and Country, The church for this occasion
���nas decorated by Mr. Prowse ami
members of the Young People's Society with national flags and pennants
and presented a pleasing appearance.
The .sermon wal eene which will long
be remembered by theese who wcre
able to obtain admittance to the service, the church being packed tei the

Micah IV, 3-5. "And He shall judge
among many people and rebuke strong
nations afar off, and they shall heat
their swords into ploughshares and
spears into pruning honks. Nation
shall not lift up a sword against na-
tieen, neither shall they learn war any
more."
The first great lesson is. that the
appeal tei the heroic has ever the same
response. Britons stand where I!ri-
tons have always stood The Prussian had expected tn find ihe Empire
disintegrated. What a shock it was
1'. find it so uniquely consolidated. In
the hour of her need the Mother had
looked to her daughters fnr assistance, and���there was life in lhat look.
The most distant hamlet of the furth-
���est outpost hail responded, with a loyalty and devotion which the Huns
could not understand.
This war was teaching the world
that it was an organic whole. There
Was no such thing as neutrality. W'e
are all bound up 'in the bundle of life
together, and whether individual "r
nation, all had heen touched in some
���way by the war nf the nations, and
everywhere nun were seeing malcr-
iah'stic philosophy getting its death
blow, The war i- destroying the direct  menaces t" civilization and here
was the ureal moral value of war.
Might was nol right. There would
also he a levelling up eel" the races after this war. If some were good

Indian troops were the bravest of
the brave, and if wc took their help
in war times we must give them assistance and friend-hip in peace times
Then this is a teetotal war. Russia
had banished vodka wiih amazing results for good. The French hail proscribed absinthe, anil Ihe Uriiish parliament was at lhat moment in the
throes of a great decision regarding
the future of its drink problem, The
whole world was at last realizing
thai the habit ami traffic of intoxicating liquor a- a beverage was an a-

of the entire' world. If w< can fight
���witlnmt it. can we not work kithoul
it? It costs mora in money an.l lives
in one year than the greatest ni all
wars emild possibly tax us in ihe same
tune. It was no good. Never could
be, and yet there were some people
in this community who affirmed
"That we needed a license here." If
ever the people of South Vancouver
permitted a -aloon to come into any
part of the municipality, after the un-
controvertable arguments which this
war had given us against its use, then
the life of every one in our midst
who went astray under its influence
could without doubt he laid at their
door. The public is responsible, not
the publican. We want prohibition
in this Province because we need it.
and if the war has done no other good
than to help send British Columbia
dry, the thirty young lives inscribed
upon our roll of honor here will not
have been given up in vain.
Another lesson of the war was tilt
high value placed upon woman's work.
Wc have found out what women can
do. The Hannah Morc's and Florence
Nightingale's .-unl the Elizabeth Fry's
have not all past into the pages eif
history. They are still with us. "I
was sick and ye visited me." We arc
all proud of the active part our mothers and sisters have taken in pree-
viding comforts for our brothers and
sons in the trenches, and the record
of tiie Vancouver women will compare favorably with that of any ill
any part of Ihe Empire.
After dealing with other lessons of
tlie war anil paying a high tribute to
the plaee of the working men in the
struggle both at home and at ihe
fn mi, the' preacher went nn te) say
that, all things considered possibly
Ihe greatest lesson of the war for
humanity was "That man's chief end
is. afler all. t.��� glorify Oeed and enjoy
llini f.er ever." Willi all ..ur religieen
anil all mir theology wc had very little Chri-t-oliigy. We were trying to
graft tiie Christian religion on to a
rotten -tump. The first commandment has heen almost forgotten in
Western Canaela. A dollar hill, lo

The W. M. S. of Robson Memorial
Church held their annual meeting ami
election of officers in the church on
Tuesday afternoon of last week. Yearly reports were given and heard with
interest, showing that considerable
good work had been accomplished by
the society. That the slaff of officers
for the year just closed had fulfilled
their duties in an entirely satisfactory manner was proven by their
being unanimously re-elected for the
e.lining year. After the business of
the meeting hadibeen disposed of. excellent papers were given by Mrs.
Lowe and Mrs. Bolam on "Christian
Stewardship."
"ne eef the most excruciatingly funny things that have happened in South
Vancouver since the election of Eddie
Gold a- reeve occurred at a regular
meeting of the council, when Couii-
cilhir Russell unfeelingly "referred t'<
the put���Eddie's past. One of Reeve
G'dd's most ardent female support*s
?t eince arose to remind the naughty
councillor that ihere were "ladies"
present and that, therefore, he shodld
be careful what he said. Councillor
Russell promptly apologised and refrained from delving further into reminiscences of Eddie's past.
* * *
<>i curse the je,ke was not apparent
le. all present. It apparently missed the
attention of the press, for no reference was made to the "lady's" objection to bringing in Eddie's past. Bit
here is the "News-Advertiser's" report of the incident leading up to tjc
"lady's" protest:
"Councillor Russell: Look here. fitr.
Reeve, I'm not going to be dictated
lo by you or anybody else. I'm here
as a representative of the people. I
was elected by acclamation and that's
more than you were.
"Rceic Gold: A fine representative
you are.
"Councillor Russell: A better man
than you any day. J can point to a
better past than you can. Talk about
throwing slurs! You should he thc
last man to threiw a slur at anybody."
It was at this point that the "lady"
intervened, reminding Councillor Russell that it was not advisable to delve
further into the past in the presence
eef "ladies." * * *
Now, I wonder what incident in the
past it was that the "lady" in question
was afraid the outspoken Russell
might mention, in the presence of
"ladies!-" Was it tiie occasion whei
Eddie spent three months in retire
ment at Xew Westminster? Or the
occasion when he slammed the conn
house deior in Vancouver, when order
eel li. leave the court by the presiding judge? Or was it some other in
cidenl in Eddie's past that the "lady'
was afraid Russell was about d. re
call?    It would be interesting to know
* * * .        '
However, let the dead past bury its
dead. W'e have lo deal with the present. But it i.s just such incidents as
that referred to that are making
Smith Vancouver stink in the nostrils
of all decent-minded people. The

Councillor Russell: "Y.iu'rc looking for a sure thing; let the reeve

reeve that the people want to resign.
I'll give $31)0 to this charity If the

Reeve Gold: "I was elected to the
office by tht people and I stated my
policy which they elected me on, and
do you think I am coming up here
to bow the neck of servility to this

Councillor Russell: "Vou were elected by  the minority."
Reeve Gold: "Go on with the business."
A communication was next read
stating that he had again suspended several employees, including Fire
Chief Lester. The communication
was ordered to be filed.
A communication was read from
J. E. Parsons, re overdue interest on
loan. The municipal solicitor was instructed to go ahe.-.d with this matter

To the  Reeve and Council of South
Vancouver:
Your Worship and Gentlemen:
May we ask your thoughtful attention and careful consideration to the
following open letter which is addressed to you in all humility ami .in
all sincerity.
On the occasion of your election
last January to your honored public
office, you will not forget thai while
you were elected by the votes of -many
good and loyal citizens, there wcre
also many and good loyal citizens
who voted for other men. That is the
privilege and duty of electors during
an election. When an election is over
however, it is the duly of all loyal
and law-abiding citizens, whatever he
their personal views, to accept the
verdict and give loyal support to those
who have been duly elected. You,
therefore, as members of the Council, have the right to expect from all
the people that respect and loyalty
tbat is due you in your office. Also
the whole body of the people have
the right to expect that the work of
the  council be carried on in  such a
manner as to warrant their, loyalty
and support.
Again the reeve and council should
he loyal to themselves by being loyal
to each olher. The reeve was duly
elected by lhe people, and whether
-nine councillors and some people like
ii or not, he is entitled to the respect
due the' chair and the leadership due
his office. And just as truly were
the councillors elected by the'people.
and whether the reeve and some of
the people like it or ne.t. they are entitled to the respect due ihem as responsible councillors and accredited
representatives of the people. You
have therefore a great opportunity
this year tei confirm the confidence
that was reposed in you. to vindicate
your tnte value, and to do a work of
real service in the municipality in this
year of strain and stress.
It is surely not necessary to suggest that the present state of affairs
is causing widespread disappointment
and discontent to the general public.
Xor i.s it necessary to point out that

The reeve here read a report from
the "World" paper ni April I, stati
that the council would suggest that
the reeve reduce his salary to $1000.

Started in the municipality for the
destitute women and children, the
council to give up their $300 and the
reeve would give up a $1000 of his.
Councillor Russell claimed this was
most unfair, saying: "Let the reevi
if hc is so generous give $1500 of his
salary for this purpose and accept
$300  the  same  as  the   councillors."
Councillor Welsh suggested that
this kind of thing should stop, this
wrangling has been going on since
ever the council took office and no
business was being transacted for
the  municipality's  benefit.

claimed that Reeve Gold hae! been the

Councillor Rowlings stated he had
no right to pay this bill and the account  was   passed.
The item re thc payment of $125
as months's salary to Police Magistrate Johnson caused considerable discussion. Reeve Gnld objected and
wanted to know why the council had
recommended that the magistrate be
paid $75 per month and wen- now willing to pay $125. Councillor Allen
pointed out that Point Grey and Hurnaby wcre paying their police magistrate $100. and also that the Attorney-
General in Victoria considered that
$75 was not enough for a man occupying this important position.
Reeve Gold pointed out that this
sum had been suggested that they
might have a chance to quietly get rid
of Magistrate Johnson as hc was not

South Vancouver Honor Roll
Remember Men at the Front
Interesting Patriotic Service Held in Westminster Presbyterian
Church
rice 3 cents
The following is an  extract from a
Sermon   preached   by   Rev.   Mr.   Craig
at Westminster Presbyterian Church
la��t Sunday evening. The occasion
was the presentation of a roll of honor ,,f the men who have left this vicinity to fight for their King and Country. The church for this occasion
was decorated by Mr. Prowse and
members of the Young People's Society with national flags and pennants
and presented a pleasing appearance.
The sermon was one which will long
be remembered by those who were
able to obtain admittance to the service, the church being packed t'e the-
doors.,
Micah IV, .1-5. "And He shall judge
nnieing many peeeple and rebuke strong
nations afar eeff. and they shall beat
their sweirds into ploughshare- and
-pears into pruning hook-. Nation
shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any
njnrc."
Tlle first great lesson is. thai the
appeal to the heroic has ever the same
response. Britons stand where Uri-
fons have always stood. The Prussian had expected te, find the Empire
disintegrated. What a -heuk it was
to find it so uniquely consolidated. In
the hour of her need tin Mother had
looked t" her daughter- for assist-
ance, and���there was life in that look.
The most distant hamlel e.f the furthest outpost had responded, with a loyalty and devotion which lhe Huns
could not iiiidcrst'and.
This war was teaching the we,rid
that it was an organic whole. There
was no such thing as neutrality. We
are all bound up iu the bundle of life
together, ami whether individual or
nation, all hail been touched in some
way   hy   the   war   nf   the   nations,   .'ind
everywhere  men  were  seeing  materialistic   philosophy   getting   ils   death
blow.    The war is destroying the dir-j
eel  menaces  t> ��� civilization and here I
was the great moral value' of war.
Might was iie.i righl. There ive.nl,!
also be a levelling up of the races afler this war. if some were good
.nnugh io fighl with, surely they
were good enough tn live with. The
Indian troops were the bravest of
the brave, and if we took their help
in war times we must give them assistance and friendship in peace times
Then this is a teetotal war. Russia
hail banished vodka "iih amazing results for good. The French hail proscribed absinthe, anil the' Uriiish parliament was at thai moment ill '.he
throes of a great decision regarding
the Future of its drink problem. The
whole world was at last realizing
thai lhe habit and traffic of intoxicating liquor a- a beverage was an a-
leeeinination to society and c6'uld be'
dispensed wiih te the everlasting good
oi the entire world. If we ean fighl
���without it. can we ii"l work kithoul
il? It ceests m.ere in money and lives
in eme year than thc greatest o( all
wars could possibly tax us in the same
time' It wi, no g,,e,d. Never could
be, and yet there were -nine people
in    thi.    community   wlm   affirmed
"That we needed a license here," If
ever the people of South Vance.uver
permitted a saloon to conic into any
part of the municipality, after the uncontrovertible arguments which this
war had given us against its use, then
the life of every one in our midst
who went astray under its influence
ceiuld without doubt be laid at their
door, The puhlic is responsible, not
the publican. We want prohibition
in this Province because we need it.
and if the war has done no ..ther good
than to help send Hritish Columbia
dry, the thirty young lives inscribed
upon our roll of li.,n,,r here will not
have been given up in vain.
Another lesven nf lhe war was the
high value placed upon woman's work.
We have founel e.ut what women can
do. The Hannah More'- and Florence
Nightingale's anil the' Elizabeth Fry's
have not all past into tlle pages of
history. They are still with us. "I
wa- sick and ye visited me." W'e are
all proud of the active part our mothers and sisters have taken in providing comforts for our brothers and
son- in the trenches, and the record
nl the Vane.mver women will compare favorably with that of any in
any pari of lhe Empire.
Afnr dealing with either lessons nf
Ihe war anil paying a high tribute to
Ihi' place of the working men in the
struggle both al home and at the
front, lln- preacher went ou to say
iheit, all things considered possibly
the greatest lesson of the war for
humanity was "That man's chief .nd
is, afler all, I" glorify Cul and enjoy
Him for ever." With all our religion
and all mir theology wc hail very little Christ-ology. We were trying tn
graft the Christian religion mi in a
rotten stump. The first commandment has been almost forgotten in
Western Canaela. .\ dollar bill, t"

that our yeiung men should have their

FACTS AND FANCIES
By "Obsc
into  rc-
One e,i the mosl excruciatingly fun-
ny things that have happened in South
Vancouver since ihe election of Eddie
Gold a-  reeve occurred at a regular
meeting of the council, when Councillor Russell unfeelingly referred t.i
the past���Eddie's past. One of Reeve
G'eld's most ardent female support*};
ft eince are.se to remind the naughty
councillor that ihere were "ladies''
present and that, therefore, he should
he careful what he said. Councillor
Russell promptly apologised and refrained  from   delving  furtlu
miniscences of Eddie's past.
*    *    ee
Of course the joke was not apparent
lo all present. It apparently missed the
attention of the press, for no reference was made to the "lady's" objection p. bringing in Eddie's past But
here is the "News-Advertiser's" report of the incident leading up to the
"lady's"  protest:
"Councillor Russell: Look here. Mr.
Reeve, I'm not going to be dictated
:o by you or anybody else. I'm hefc
as a representative of the people. I
was elected by acclamation and that's
more than you were.
"Reeve Gold: A fine representative
you are.
"Councillor Russell: A hetter man
Ih.'in you any day. I can point to a
hetter least than ymi can. Talk about
throwing slur-! Yon should he the
last man to throw a slur at anybody."
It was at this point lhat lhe' "lady"
intervened, reminding Councillor Russell that it was not advisable to delve
further into the past in the presence
of "ladies " * �� *
Now, I wonder what incident in the
past it was that the "laely" in question
was afraid the outspoken Russell
might mention, in the presence of
"ladies?" Was il the occasion when
kddie spenl three months in retirement al New Westminster.- Or the
occasion when he slammed the court
house door in Vancouver, when nrder-
eel !'��� leave the curl by the presid-
ing judge? Or was it some other incident in Eddie's past that ihe ���'lulv"
was afraid Russell was ah'ml to recall?   It would he interesting t i know,
Eddie ice
cm- le, think that the reeve
is a coachman, holding the rem, with
Which to drive a team of seven councillors attached te, the municipal
coach, and that a big whip a���d strong
"'iirbs an- part of the necessary equipment. W ell. any reeve who fosters
such notions is bound to suffer disillusionment sooner or later. Councillor., are neither going t,, be whipped
not curbed and the mall who tries to
drive a municipal team, instead of
winding it, will find himself some day
on Ins back m the ditch and the team
bolting with the "bit between their
teeth.
* * *
Eddie ha<! a fine opportunity both
last year and again this year of "pulling South Vancouver out of the
hole," as he so graphically puts it
Hut starting out with a willing team
on both occasions, by the alternate
use ni whip and curb, Eddie spoiled
the temper of the team until they
ktcke.l e.ver tlle truces; and instead of
hauling the municipal coach mit of
the hole" it is in danger of falling
over into  the ditch  of  financial
rum.

The municipal council meeting of
last Thursday nigh- wa- again marked by scenes nf strife, anil actions of
a most disgusting character. These
scenes are now looked upon as a part
of the regular business at these meetings and are being allowed to take up
the time of the council to a far greater extent than the business of the
municipality.
The council met at the regular hour
and deputations from several associations were present and addressed the
council. The deputation from the Social Service Council consisting of
Rev. Mr. Davidson, Rev. J. R. Robertson, Rev. J. Wilkinson. Mr. Thomson and Mrs. Wood, were first listened to. The letter will be found in
full elsewhere on this "-egc.
A deputation was present from the
pool mom proprietors and requested
that the hour of closing the pool
rooms be extended from 11 o'clock to
12 o'clock, claiming that Ihe city pool
roms being open till 12 had an advantage over them in South Vancouver. The request was laid over for
further consideration and ��ill come
up again at next meeting of council.
Mr-. Kalenberg was present anil
requested that her claim re Kalenberg
Hall be taken up, but was informed
ihat the matter was now entirely in
the hands of the solicitors tn he dealt
wiih.

election of officers in the church on
Tuesday afternoon of last week. Yearly reports were given and heard with
interest, -bowing that considerable

the society. That thc staff of officers
feir the year just closed had fulfilled
their duties in an entirely satisfactory manner was proven by their
being unanimously re-elected for the

Vour Worship and Gentlemen:
May we ask ymir thoughtful attention and careful consideration to the
following open letter which is addressed to you in all humility and.in
all sincerity.
On the occasion of ymir election
lasl January to your honored public
office, you will nut forget thai while'
you wcre elected by the votes of many
good anel loyal citizens, there were
also many and good loyal citizens
who voted for other men. That is the
privilege and duty of electors eluring
.in election, When an election is over
however, it is the duty of all loyal
am! law-abiding citizens, whatever bc
their personal views, tei accept the
verdict and give loyal support to those
who have been duly elected. You,
therefore, as members of the Council, have the right to expect from all
the people that respect and loyalty
that is due you in your office. Also
the whole body of the people have
the right to expect that the work of
the  council  be  carried  on  in   such  a

to each other. Tbe reeve was dill;
elected by the peeeple, and whe thi r
some councillors and some people like
ii or not, he is entitled to the respect
elne the' chair and the' leadership due
his office. And just as truly were
the councillors elected by the people,
and whether the reeve and some of
the people like it or not, they are entitled in the respect due ihem as responsible councillors and accredited
representatives of the people. You
hai. therefore a great opportunity
ihi- year to confirm the confidence
that wa.- reposed in you, to vindicate
your true value, and to do a work of
real service in the municipality in this
year of strain and stress.
It is surely not necessary to suggest that the present state of affairs
is causing widespread disappointment
and discontent to the general public.
Nor is il necessary to point out that
the recent scenes in the Council

The reeve lure read a report freim
the "World" paper of April 1, stating
that the council would suggest that
the reeve reduce his salary to $1000.
lie claimed that in his election campaign he Stated that he needed the
$2,000, and he would not stand for
less. He suggested thai a fund be
started in the municipality feer the
destitute women and children, the
council to give up their $300 and thc
reeve would give up a $1000 of his.
Councillor Russell claimed this was
must unfair, saying: "Let the reeve
if hc is so generous give $1500 of his
-alary for this purpose and accept
$.100  the  same  as  the  councillors."
Councillor Welsh suggested that
th'1 kinel of thing should stop, this
wrangling has been going on since
ever the council took office and no
business was being transacted for
the municipality's benefit.
Councillor Street was also against
this kind of foolish arguing and de-
���wnded  that  this stuff be cut out-
Reeve Gold was not to be st..pped
ami said :"l have another suggestion
to make. If the council will go be-
fe,re the- people and if five of them
are returned, the reeve will reign
next day."
Councillor Russell: "You're looking for a sure thing; let the reeve
come out with the cejuncillors; it's the
reeve that the people want to resign.
I'll give $300 to this charity if the
reeve   will   give   his   whole   salary."
Reeve Gold: "I was elected to the
office by tiie people and I stated my
policy which they elected me on, and
do ye.u think I am coming up here
to bow the neck of servility- to this
council."
Councillor Russell: "Y.,11 were elected by the minority."
Reeve Gold: "Go on with the business."

li i- some months now since this journal drew the
attention ni the public t" the facl that Vancouver
wholesale -unl retail grocers were making a practice
of infusing cold water into the butter offered tor sale
in ilie city. Some days ago in the police court several
merchants were havily fined fur this cunning work.
It was found that one panic of real New Zealand hut-
tor, properly treated with water could he expanded into six "i- seven patties ni butter-and-water which look-
i'il exactly like butter ami tasted like butter ami weig-
ed like butter.
British Columbia's splendid water supply is being
exploited along wiih the other   natural    resources.
They shout the water inti) tlie butter, inte. tlle milk.

which are nursed by a kind governmeent,
I tieler proper treatment a gallon of pure milk may
he expanded into three gallons; one pound of butter
may he transformed into six pounds; a gallon of whiskey, with water ami several different kinds of poisons has ,-i thousand per cent, added to its longeivity
ami killing powers: a .good industry like some of our
Iiunber ami mining concerns falls into the hands of
the promoters .-unl is expanded from a five million
dollar corporation to a fifty-million dollar corporation.
The promoters always shake down the watered prei-
position lor iis real value ami this monev thev salt
.away. Then the public is deluded into buying the
water.
Te... much water is the curse of Uriiish Columbia,
MORE ABOOT WATER
DR. McIXTOSH, one of the younger members ni
the Vancouver City Council put himself defin-
itelj em record the either day a- having a large bump
nee when he advanced the idea oi the city
!;i\,'\ e>i  i ' e    , i ih.' Lower Main
land �� || ng ui nu war- to come
,i cheap hydro-electric power system For Vancouver.
Vci'ording in the newspaper reports, some of ihe
older head objected to this move, li had been tried
i,mi m an,! ,r:ir ..nt lini whined. Committees li.-nl
.,, ii appointed ami re appointed to look into ihi- matter and on each occasion had failed t" turn in a report.
Dr. Mcintosh apparently pressed the matter, with
ihe resull thai tin- cit) council of Vancouver turrfed
thi- all important matter over to ilu- polite committee
to investigate!
li i- likely thai the police committee will detail a
couple "i ihe detectives to handle the work. These
officers may he expected to suitably disguise themselves anel take the trail in search e.f running water.
They will have their magnifying glasses along with
them .unl all tin apparatus necessary to analyse ami
ie-i all lii|niil substances in the neighborhood. They
mav he expected to take into consultation our own
water wizard ami Mr. Zimmerman with twig iu hand,
will guide tlu sleuths from point to point ami possibly
towards the end of the ye.at a report may he filed with
the council proclaiming that within a certain number
of meters from ihe city hall traces wwe found of running water ami that progress is being made in the
direction of reaching the source of tin's rivulet.
Xexl year's council may follow this suhjeet up when
along aboul May l'Md the detectives will reporl thai
though running water was found mature investigation
disclosed the facl that it issued from a break in a
water main running towards South Vancouver ami
thai a new start will have to he made upon this work
of investigation.
It is with no desire to injure any privately owned
institution selling power to Vancouver that we supporl
the suggestion of Dr, Mcintosh that something should
he done hy the city ami by the Province of Hritish
Columbia to develt p for the people the immense water powers available within a stone's throw of Vancouver.
Ii is surprising thai in the platforms of the greal
political parties of Hritish Columbia no reference can
be found to a hydro-electric scheme. Sufficienl water
power is going to waste iii Hritish Columbia to drive
all the factories on the American continent west to
Chicago.
Some son of intelligent hydro-electric system similar to that put into effect by tiie Tory Government of
Ontario would mean tlie making of British Columbia.
The carrying forward of such a policy in this Province
would work hand in hand with a lamis settlement
policy ami is absolutely essential to any successful
scheme for the building up of British Columbia's industries.

"The Last Word
in Dentistry."
CHKRF. is nothing so important to your health ami efficiency as the matter with
your teeth. Sound, useful, Beautiful teeth should be yours���teeth that enable
you to bite, chew and smile in comfort. Decayed teeth cause, not only continual
inconvenience, but permanent ill-health. . . is your duty to yourself to economize
:n other ways so that you may secure teeth that look natural, feel natural and perform the functions which Nature allotted to those important members.
CHEREFORE you should choose your dentist with great care. It is poor
economy to buy 'bargain teeth." Inferior dentistry���poor materials, little
knowledge and less care���costs but little less than the right kind even at the beginning, and certainly is much more expensive in the long run.
I EMPLOY only the most modern methods, the greatest care and skill and the
best materials. Each individual case is carefully studied. When I fit you
with my "Nature teeth'' they look, fit and feel like the ones Nature gave you. And
you will find my prices no higher than those of ordinary dentists.
GOME in and allow me to examine your mouth, advise you and give you my
estimate of the cost. This will involve no obligation whatever. Make up
your mind now to see to those teeth. Then call, phone or write to me now,
making appointment for examination.

Tin. council mel on Monday m. ruing in take up the unfinished business
from Friday night. Before taking up
the regular business, Council! er Welsh
drew attention to a report "i a meeting held in Carleton Hall, and criticized remarks alleged tee have been
made by Councillor Stanley Councillor Stanley was able to explain this
matter satisfactorily and the matter
was dropped.
The Rev. Mr. Davidson of Mountain View Church was present and
asked permission to address the council. This having been granted Mr.
Davids n, on let-half nf the Social
Service Council of South Vancouver
asked the council to carefully consider the' application bj the pool room
proprietors for extension ol open
hours, anel asked them not to extend
the hour to twelve o'clock, believing
this w<,11 !���! neet be in the interests of
the young men of South Vancouver.
Also he brought attention t'e the
license being askeel i.er tee allow athletic exhibitions t'i be held in Marfew
Hall, and asked the council to demand from ilie1 applicants an assurance that all exhibitions would be held
under the rules of the Amateur Athletic Union of Canada. Mr, Davidson
was assured that these matters would
be carefully dealt with and a meeting
will be called on Thursday and all
parties concerned will ileal with these
mat lets.
The matter nf the Parks Bylaw ;
and the I'ark Money Bylaw was then
taken up anil after considerable discussion a motion was carried by four
ve.tes te. three deciding nol t.e submit
at this time these bylaws to the people.
The reeve' tried hard to have this
nniiiein reconsidered but the majority
of the council were of the opinion
that with the sew erage money coming
in soon and with the tax sale coming
on, there would be money enough t.e
keen the we.rk moving so that the

From these FIRMS
lie intiTi-st, tnul the councillors sh��>n 1<1
iil.se> be supported i" having these
matters dealt with on their merits.
Surely an easy solution would bc to
have a careful investigation into all
the departments by an independent
anil Impartial committee, or commission, or the whole council, anil then
dismiss or adjust on tbe merits of the
case. This is also British, and is only fair.
In   conclusion,   we   as   members   of
thc  Social   Service  Council  of  Seiuth
Vancouver, and as loyal and Impartial
citizens, submit these suggestions for
yeiur serious consideration. We believe
that, by putting away all personal
feelings and avoiding all selfish me>t-
ives, you can resume the weirk of the
municipality and carry on the work of
the council with dignity and honor to
all concerned.
All of which is respectfully submitted in behalf of the Social Service  Council.

Open Letter from Social Service
Council
i Continui d from page   11
i hallengi - md counter challenges, re
suiting in an open breach in tlu
chamber and a deadlock in the coun��|
cil���have- nol onlj no sufficient cause,
lent have Ipwered tiie- dignity of the
council and seriously hampered the
work of the municipality, And while
some i>cii|ilc may regard these scenes
as a sort of public entertainment and
others view thein as a vaudeville
show, you, as responsible members of
the council, cannot help but sec the
seriousness ��� of the situation. Vent
will bear in miml that the people who
gather in the council chamber are but
a small proportion of the public in
the municipality who natch the doings of the council and who are pained and grieved over thc things that
have happened. The Council chamber is a place of honor and dignity,
and it i�� a great humiliation te> know
that it has become a rough house for
thc display of hot temper and coarse
language, and where sacred songs arc
sung as ribald songs. Against all
this, a word of protest is surely in
order.
Nor docs the present situation seem
too difficult for reasonable men to
solve. Harmonious actintj along thc
following litics arc herewith suggested with the hope that you will receive
them in the kindly spirit in which they
arc given, and give them that serious
consideration worthy of the council.
l-"ir>f.     The   reei'e   should'    receive
the fullest sympathy and support in
working oui  his avowed policy of re.
trenchment,   ec uny  and   efficiency.
In  the he ri  ol   battle the councillors
may forget that there arc g I points
in the reeve's policy���matters which
they themselves may have Formerly
fa,sred, and �� hich arc worthy of the
ni".-! serious consideration.
Second. The councillors should receive from the reeve the same sympathy and help in lining the wbrk of
the council. By virtue of their office
they arc worthy and responsible men,
representatives of the people, and
councillors to the chief magistrate.
Our municipal system is not government by the reeve, bit) governmenl
by the council, and each and every
member nf the council must exercise
and exert his best judgment for thc
best interests of the people. If the
reeve will respect (he judgment of
the council, and the council respect
the judgment of the reeve, reasonable
counsels should prevail,
Third. Thc reeve and council should
work together constitutionally. Our
liritish system from highest to lowest, is democratic. The King rules
through bis advisers, the Governor
works through his government, the
Prime Minister leads hy his cabinet,
and the Mayor ministers through his
council and committees. At the coronation of the late King Edward VII
his first words to the Empire were a
pledge that he would rule by the
constitution. The reeve is not above
the King and can only govern after
the manner of the  King.    The  King

though the reeve were always right
and the councillors always wrong,!
nevertheless the- wnrk can only be
done througii boards and committees,
and the majority vote e.f the council.
This is liritish and we belong to British institutions.
Fourth. The use of the veto should
hc used with extreme caution. Our
Kings and Governors seldom if ever
use it. Its great value lies in the fact
that its power is latent and seldom
called into action. It is a protection
against hasty legislation. In very extreme cases it is useful as a means for
reconsideration, It surely never was
meant as a substitute fur democracy
or to set aside the judgment of responsible councillors. Instead of repeating thc veto wc submit that
the reeve will have stronger leadership if after giving his best judgment
he places the responsibility on his
council. And then both reeve and
council have their appeal to tbe people to whom they are accountable.
This method may be slow, but is surely faster than the present method.
It is also British and we have nothing
better to hand.
Fifth. The "spoils system" should
not bc tolerated by cither reeve or
council in the dismissal of employees.
If the staff is too large, and salaries
too high, and inefficiency anywhere,
tbe reeve should be supported in having such matters adjusted in the ptib-
