Array WAR !
The Greatest Cartoon the World Produces Is a Photo
Thc  title ol thc rem a-It able photograph above i'i "WAK."
It is a itudy juit male by a famous photogi  phei                                    urer, Lawrence Grant.    Thia study was made
in the war arena and typtfits Mr. ('<  int'a Unprci                   ays, oi the great wai d*   it  affected   Belgium.
"To  me,"  bc  ssya,   "flU of  lhe  horrors of war are nt* ������<>'���   i;ice.     She   shows   all   the   terror
'.feat the soldiers feel In the trenches when shells burst about them, jusl . as tha terror the wo.nen feel left
a.one to  meet the oncoming depri                    i   levastating
"If  HER face does not stop war,  not all the sights of Belgium would stop war,   for she is Belgium���SHE IS WAR!"
IN another column is printed a marvellous cartoon,
entitled "War." It is fitting that in this column
should be set forth an article in behalf of certain people
who are in distress, not because of the bloody horrors of
war, but because of one of the vilest atrocities of peace.
I.iieei. into the face oi the Figure in the adjoining column and you will read, misery,
poverty, despondency, degeneracy. Ponder for a moment, then consider the suicides,
the failures, the ruin which followed upon Vancouver's worst financial catastrophe, the
i lilure of the I )ominion Trust.
li was Bowser, our Vttornej General, the King's adviser, who promised the depositors ni the Dominion Trusi Company that upon April 1 he would turn over to them
lhe proceeds ol the quarter million dollar bond which the company had put up as evidence of pood faith.
"On April 1." said he, "the proceeds of the bond will be apportioned among you."
\ti'l two thousand working men and their wives breathed a sigh of relief. They
thought thai out of it all they would receive some pittance.
April 1 came. And the crudest of All Fool's Day jokes was played by Bowser, Arnold's afcomplice, upun those simple, trusting working men. "You must wait," said
Meantime Sir Richard McBride, seeking funds with which to extend the line fences of the Lain] of Assynt, Jack Stewart, the railroad king, travels abroad in luxury and
ease. Bowser sets his attentions upon the electors of British Columbia whom he hopes
to fool again into putting him in charge of our public wealth, lie is off at Prince Rupert, at Kamloops, Victoria, Xanainio, flitting hither and thither, making love to the
voters. And the members of his Government spend their summer holiday in the alcoholic atmosphere of the gilded palaces of Victoria.
One quarter of a million dollars was the sum of the bond upon which the Govern?
incut was supposed to have realized on April 1. the last vestige of hope left to the depositors in the Dominion Trusi Company.
Where is il ?
If the Government does not promptly make an explanation to the people upon this
question, we may assume that this money, this quarter of a million, in view of the lail-
u re of McBride and Stewart to work the financiers of Xew Vork and London, will be
used to bribe, corrupt and debauch electors and build up Bowser Associations���God
forbid that we should call thein Conservative Associations, across the length and
breadth of this most unhappy Province of British Columbia.

By  "Observer"
It i- said that adversity makes
strange bed-fellows. And the.- sight en
Kddie Guid and Spencer Robinse .n in
almost daily conference causes one
furiously I" think, as the French have
it.     Twelve   months   ago   Kddie   Gold
was accused by his fellow councillors, ur at least In- senile of them,
uf persecuting Spencer Robinson, His
vindictive anil venomous remarks were I
very pungent when it was suggested]
that the municipality should drop all
action againsl the Robinson property
and alhiw tin- punishment inflicted by
the courts tei suffice. Would Eddie
agree? Nol hei Eddie insisted on
'.he municipality having its pound of
Flesh, like Shylock ot old. Neiw,
however, a change has come "'er the
scene and Eddie and Spencer may be
heen alnmst any day Conspiring together how i'i confound Councillor
Campbell and the school board. As
Councillor Allen remarked. Spencer
Keibinsini has become very popular
..11 at once at the Municipal Hall. And
the reason is not far tei seek Just
as any stiek is guud enough tei beat
a de>g s.e any person who can "net
after" Councillor Campbell ur the
school beiard is welcomed by Eddie
��� '���eild as a friend and ally.
��� * *
The interests uf the municipality I
weigh not one iota with Eddie Gold
SO long as he ean "put one over"
those whom he thinks are antagonistic tei him. He poses as an advocate ut economy and efficiency, but
h�� is the most wasteful reeve who has
tver graced, or disgraced, the chair
:n South Vancouver, and as tee effic-
iency, he has done more tee create a j
lissatisficd, discontented and disorganized staff than :my previous reive.
���Mid any person acquainted with business organizations knows that etfie-|
���ency and discontent do not go liatu!-
* +    *
Eddie's wastefulness was    demonstrated  both   last  year and  again   this]
year.    Ile persuaded  lhe  council  last (
year tee waste $300 een n lawyer's opinion,   whieh   occupied   reams   eef   paper
i announce that he was "not satis-
Fied" that the Main Street paving
- nilraet was valid. Every other lawyer tu whom tin- question was submitted stated emphatically that in their
pinion the contract was valid; but
Eddie  was  nol   satisfied and  lie  per
suaded the council tee spend $.100 t.i
get a lawyer to agree with him. Then
again Eddie was the direct cause 'if
another $31.:) being spent to ascertain
the depth of a well, which every .nie
associated with the water department
knew had been allowed tee slit up lie-
cause there was no water below the
200 fool level. Anil those two instances ot' wasteful expenditure were
by no means alone, Eddie was all for
spending the ratepayers' money in unprofitable ways eluring the whole of
tbe time he was een the Council, And
it has been the same this year
* * *
One ol his very first actions, afler
his election as reeve, cost the municipality  $30,000,   according   t..    W I,
Gundy & Company; ami instead .ef
having that $30,000 for road work to
find employment for South Vancouver
workmen it has gone Into the coffers
of Spitzer. Rorick & Company, of
Toledo, Ohio, It would be interesting to know the nationality of the
firm. Anyhow, that $.*UX,0 would
have been much better iu the pockets
of Seeuth Vancouver workmen than
in the- coffers of an American firm,
whether they be Jews, Greeks ,��r tier-
mans. But. te, spite Wood, Gundy &
Company, Kddie did not hesitate to
make a dicker with the American
firm, nee matter what it might cost
South Vancouver. And that is typical of Eddie Gold all the way through.
as South Vancouver will one day disci ever to its sorrow.
* * it
In regard to efficiency, take the
following resolution which Eddie instructed his private secretary to type
out and submit tee councillors to lie
moved and seconded: "That in onler
te, consistently earry mil the plans
oi efficiency and economy we notify
the following men tbat their positions
have been declared vacant and that
they are at liberty to apply again feir
same, viz.: G. W. Hubbard, building
inspector; VV, Pleming, health inspector; J. \V. McKay, water superintendent;  anil  A.   II.   Brereton,  chief  water
works clerk "

Business While He Airs His Grievances at Council Meeting
When the Municipal Council met in
regular session lasl Friday night, the
Municipal Hall vvas packed with an
expectant and interested audience. At
7.30, when the reeve and council had
taken their places Reeve Gold, before
calling '.he meeting to order for the
regular business, produced a COpj of
the "News-Aelvertiscr" eef April 14.

Deputations to address ceeiiucil
were first called feer and this brought
forth a deputation from the Social
Service Council who were present to
protest against an open eir unrestricted license being granted in the municipality for boxing exhibitions.
Mr. Lewis, a ratepayer of the municipality, requested liberty t'i present
a petition signed by 500 ratepayers,
requesting the council t" reconsider
their resolution refusing tee put the
proposed bylaw for the diversion of
park money, tee the fund for mael
improvements. The council by a
majority refused this pctitieeii for reconsideration.
Reeve Gold drew the attention of
the council to thc presenl condition
of Main Street, claiming that the roael
way was floating in tar and iu a bail
condition for autos and other vehicles.
Councillor Street moved that the

And .hall from .ge to age endure."
THAT railway development in Hritish Columbia
has heen hn mght to a stop is indicated quite
clearly in the presence of several thousand Austrian,
Russian, Italian and Scandinavian bread liners in the
city of Vancouver.
These men were brought into the country hy the
big railroad contractors, were worked at convict wages and when a bankrupt Province was unable to conic
through   with further sums of money, thc   railway\"~
construction camps on thc P. and 0. E. and Canadian ,.

Since tlle war broke out the Yankees who were before regarded by some crazy-loyal Canadians as horned devils, have shown that they are flesh of our flesh
and blood of our blood. For instance, their steel mills
at Bethlehem arc open to our purchasers of munitions
of war. When (Ild John Bull Stepped into the market
at New York some weeks ago he made a few purchases which started the stocks all over the United
States to soar. Woodrow Wilson's attitude toward
llerr I'lCrnstorff proves more or less that tlie Yanks
are our friends. Thc Slate of Washington shipped
more horses over to Kitchener than Hritish Columbia
has motor cars. Loyal old Dick McBride worshipped
at the feet of money-devils of Xew York and prayed
relief for bis loyal old P. and G. E��� which is slipping
slowly into the Fraser River. And Dick bought two
cross-eyed submarines from the Yanks who run the
hipyards .at Seattle,   Vancouver floated her last loan
from Prince George comes thc word:
"As far as Prince George is concerned, we would
advise the Government in a friendly way to either
send thc money to start the work of completing the
South Road (the P. and G. E.) or else to semi the
Meantime Sir Richard McBride, travelling with
Jack Stewart, tlie railroad construction king, is worrying financiers in Xew York and London for monies
to complete tlie P. and G. E. enterprise. We are informed that when Sir Richard endeavored to secure
an interview with the Chancellor of the Exchequer
for the purpose of talking over the British Columbia
financial position, the Chancellor refused to grant the
man an audience.
Thc Prince George "Post," supposedly an independent paper, in discussing the railroad,situation, makes
this astounding statement:
"This is no time to discuss the reasons why the
builders of thc Pacific Great Eastern Railway have
been forced to shut down the work of construction
for financial reasons, but rather a "time to force tlie
work to completion by such loans as are necessary so
that the development of the Province shall not he held
up. Let lhe road bc built and thc arguments heard
It has always been thc policy of the McBride government to rush into deals and discuss costs later.
This policy has bankrupted the Province and will
bankrupt any province, corporation or individual,
Discussing thc railway situation at further length,
the Prince George "Post" savs:
"Whilst the Provincial political issues hang in tin-
balance of uncertainty, the Port George country lies
in a condition of suspended animation,   Hundreds of
Unemployed are being fed in the Streets at the expense of the Government, and a half completed railway grade stretching between this point and Vancouver crumbles away and slides into the river."
Already the Province of British Columbia litis forked over to the builders of the P. and G. E. more than
enough money lo complete thc road. There has been
no accounting. The Province docs not know where it
stands. The railroaders have thc books, thc information, the wad, and the money. At this time they conic
to the Government and witli a pistol at its head demand further subventions. It has been suggested
that the forthcoming Provincial elections will see the
P. antl G. E. made thc big issue and an effort is being
made by the railroad people to line up both parties
behind thc project.
In the event of a Liberal Government going into
power, the P. and G. E. will be completed .and tbat
great north country will hc opened up. It will not be
completed upon a cry of "Send the money or the Militia." Nor will its completion be carried out and costs
discussed later. It will be completed, if Liberal principles are followed, iu such a manner as to give the
people a hundred cents value for every new dollar

the Empire calls we Canadians draw no party lines.
At Ottawa a few of the alleged sons of good old
loyalist families have been selling boots for Canadian
soldiers, which upon the feet of the men caused more
torture than the thumb screws of the inquisition.
These same loyalists have heen trafficking in old
skates of horses so burnt out that they could not do
battle with a bale of hay. Tory heelers robbed the
Government of hundreds of thousinds of dollars on
the horse purchases. Sam I [ughes went into the breast
plate manufacturing business. Sam may be expected
to ride into the next Federal affray mounted on one
of the old chargers, with one of his own breast plates
on his chest.
The money wasted by the Government on Major
McSpadden's drill hall in Grandview would have kept
a great number of the homeless wives and families of
some of our soldiers for a great many months. The
failure of the Government in British Columbia is typical of its failure in other Canadian centres.
Sir Robert Borden's followers have proved that they
arc great spenders. About the only good thing that
can be said of them so far as Vancouver is concerned
is that they have built or have promised to build many
docks, but they have done nothing to develop the country's resources, fo the end that those docks might Inconstantly loaded with outgoing freight.

of course, the uncertainty of things seems to compel ,

more obstinate they become. Proof of this statement
is constantly lieing shown in the doings at municipal council meetings in Souih Vancouver, That the
municipality is suffering through the obstinacy of

nothing but the severest condemnation, Obstinacy

! ITI SI I Columbia possesses the greatest abundance of mineral deposits of any like area in the
world. Had the Dominion and Provincial Governments devoted some attention in the past to the development of the mineral resources of British Columbia
thev would have rendered the greatest service possible
to the liritish Empire.
This war has created a vast demand for metals.
Today England scours the world for steel, nickel, copper and the many other metals used in the manufacture of munitions of war. Had England a sufficient
store of these metals on hand, shc could whip Germany single-handed within the next sixty days. England has all the men she needs and the ships and she
has the great cause. Hut she must go slow on food
and shells though her position in this regard is much
better than that of the people who sing the "Chant
of Hate."
In liritish Columbia some of our richest mineral

Clll-'.RI-'. is nothing so important to your health and efficiency as the matter with
your teeth. Sound, useful, beautiful teeth should hc yours���teeth that enable
you to bile, chew and smile in comfort. Decayed teeth cause, not only continual
inconvenience, hut permanent ill-health, It is your duty to yourself to economize
:n other ways so that you may secure teeth that look natural, feel natural and perform the (unctions which Nature allotted to those  important members.
CHEREFORE yotl should choose your dentist with great care. It is poor
economy to buy "bargain teetlt." 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 .un.
I EM PLOY 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.
COME in and allow me to examine your month, 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.

country's call to pul thc plexus-punch

in gun-power could blanket the Germans, he made a mathematical certainty -.i" victory And the mathematics wen- the mathematics ��>i the War

"And why have the German submarines Iiii-n so much more successful
than the British?" you ask. For one
reason, and it is a simple ,.11 f. The
German Heel stay- in port, and save
for raids the Germans have evaluated
the North Sea; while the liritish ships
have been on the seas, fair targets for
the keen officers of the Kaiser's
"sub.-" But considering thc seven-
teen-hour nights on the North Sea,
ami the great number of liritish transports crossing the Channel, the Germans should have done still better.
England's losses through submarines
have lire nighl out very clearly the facl
���that the only defence againsl these
'bills nf the deep is speed plus zigzag courses. No ship steaming above

The English submarines, if they get
the chance, will give as good an account of themselves as have tin- Germans. They are in the hands of the

all kinds will develop under, such e'.en-
eliiiniis. s,i here again is another fundamental principle towards success:
viz.. propei accommodation. 1 was
asked hy a friend the other day te   cull
(nr reduce the number through selection) His birds as he thought his
house was overcrowded.    Instead of
having emly  six  birds  hc  had  twenty.
Conditions nf this nature will always
court failure. The following is a safe
rule  to  apply.    Allow   for   Leghorns
4 square feet, and Plymouth Re.cks 5
square feet: hence a house 8 feet by 8
feet will accomodate its l��ghorns
and only 12 Plymouth Rocks, yel the
smaller birds need practically as much
r.iom as the larger ones ott account
of their greater activity.
The slanting or the span roof Ilemse
is the easiest tee build and thc otic I
wemld recommend for a small flock.
One e,f the advantages of this kind of
a house is, that rain water will flow
tn the rear, and therefore thc fmni
will always be dry. Tlle average height
of such a house is 7 feet in front ami
5 feel in rear; two by two inch uprights with twee by lout inch sills will
answer well for light construction;
pr..vided it will stand the weight nf
tin roof when a heavy fall of smew is
mt. Framing of two hy four inch
uprights and fottr by six inch sills
would, lieewever. be far meirc substantial. With nur severe winters it is
essential that the house' be substantially buiil. Double walls especially
mi the mnth and west sides, stuffed
with straw or sawdust would make an
ideal  protection from outside temper
ature. Lumber from large dry goods
eer piano boxes which can lie purchased at a nominal sum will answer
well for siding and roof, provided it
will give an even surface. Cracks
ami crevices must be avoided, as t ley
make   ideal   abodes   feir  insect   vermin.
I suggest iln- floor ui be nf boards
(teengui' anil groove), with a 3 ply tar
fell beneath. It should In- raised a
been! six inches from the ground, thus
preventing expansion ami contraction

lieewever. that too much glass is unsatisfactory. The door and window

why declare their in esitie ms vacant?
If they lire' not efficient, why ask thein
to apply again? As to economy, it
must be remembered that their wagea
had previously been reduced considerably; and if in the opinion of the
reeve the reduction had not been sufficient, why declare the positions vacant in order to induce them tee accept
a still further reduction? The more
you look at the proposed reseilutieen
the more it convinces that neither
efficiency nor economy had any influence with the reeve when he instructed Mr. Seymour tei type it out.
Then what did influence hint? Either
a personal spite against the men concerned or a desire tei make vacancies
for bis supporters. There is no other
-caseenable  explanation.
That Eddie does allow personal
spile te, actuate him in his actions was
forcibly demonstrated in his treatment of Mr. Burgess of the engineering department. And that he docs
not care who suffers so long as he
"gets a bit e,f his own back" is evi-
elent. Mr. Hurgess was among the
municipal cmphiyees laid off eighteen
month age). Shortly afterwards his
laughter was taken seriously ill and
was ordered to Tranquille Sanatorium. Later she was brought home
incurable and after a lingering illness
died. .Neiw, anyone whei has expcri-|
ence 'it sickness, death and unemployment at the same time know* how
iem's resources arc depleted. And it
was so with Mr. Hurgess. Consequently he was unable tee pay the account of the sanitorium, which was
in due course forwarded tei the municipality, and the council, knowing the
circumstances, ordered tlie account
Later still, Mr. Burgess vvas, again
taken em in the engineering department. Hut, as is always the ease
after a spell of unemployment and
sickness fol.leiwcd by death, it takes
a long time to pull round and tee get
once more free of debt. So it has
been with Mr. Hurgess. Unfurtun-
ately eir fortunately Mr. Hurgess happens to be a brother-in-law by marriage of Police Commissioner Lewington. And Eddie Gold has his
knife in Lewington for opposing him
on the police commission. Sei. being
informed pf the relatieenship between
Mr. Hurgess and the police ceimmia-
sienier, Eddie, as reeve, held up
Mr. Burgess's pay cheque and refused to sign it until the sanitorium
account was paid. In vain did Mr.
Burgess promise to pay the account
off at so much per month. Eddie

Eddie admit in open council that Kudland was an eild acquaintance and supporter? And what about Hobson and
a number of others one might mention? Did not T. Rackncr, the man
who stood near the reeve on the
night of the notorious council meeting "tei protect the reeve," did not he
secure a plumbing job at the Hall,

It has been asked what necessity
there is for Reeve Gold to employ a
private secretary? And it may be
answered with truth���to write letters

Gold bias; to 'draw up resolutions

NLY     THE     BEST     OF
Telephone Expansion
An   encouraging  note  is   struck  in
this  issue  of  "Telephone  Talk."    the
.magazine published hy the B. C. Telephone  Company.    It  points  out   that
net increases in the number of subscribers took place in March, as compared with February, in Vancouver
antl Victoria, as well as in several ot
the smaller exchanges of the company. A net gain is also noted for
the province as a whole. This weiuld
indicate that the province has resumed
its forward march.
That steady expansion is expected
is further shown by the announcement that the telephone company has
in hand estimates of $32,796 in Vancouver; $1,790 in North Vancouver;
$22,145 in Victoria, and $5,750 in Nanaimo, as well as improvements in hand
at Courtenay and Ladysmith. During  the  past  few  months  the  B.   C.
elepbone Company has been perfecting   its    equipment     wherever    tests
showed that improvement! could be
made and also has been doing work
e>n many of its exchange buildings so
that everything will he maintained .tl

company   strives.
