South Vancouver Now
Possesses National
Harbor of World
Greater  in   importance    than    an;
.ether event  in  the  hisieery of S'.ui
Vancouver and  the municipalities i
tbe Lewi r '. raser was the Ihk Eburne
bam     '  Tuesday night, which marl
ed inauguration  of    thc    Norti
Fraser Harbor Commission. With
ihe Government of the Dominion nf
Canada developing the North Fraser
for national harbor purposes, the
fondest dreams of the pioneers and
the optimists e.f more recent arrival.
have been realized to the full. This
fact was abundantly borne out at the
festival vhen leading men from thi"
Southern Mainland of liritish Columbia delivered eloquent and inspiring
addresses tipem subjects surrounding
Fraser Kiver development.
Announcement of Government appointees tn the Xorth Fraser Harbor
Commission, which had been looked
forward to with keen interesi, was
one of the features of the banquet.
When Mr. J. I). Taylor, M.P., mentioned the name of Mr. R. C. Hodgson, president of the South Vancouver
Board of Trade, as the Government's
S"iilli Vancouver representative on
the board that will govern the development of the Xorth Fraser Harbor, the news was received with great
acclamation Mr. Taylor's announcement of thc other appointee, Mr.
Frank Trites. a Richmond oldtimer,
was also warmly accepted.
Some idea of the spirit of the
gathering may be gathered from a
stirring address made by Captain W.
11. Higgins, of Eburne. a Fraser River pioneer. Captain Higgins is eighty years of age. He declared that
when a few years age> he was free to
state that thc Xorth Arm of the Fraser weiuld ill his lifetime become a
national port his remarks wcre scoff-
eel at by a great number.
"I will live to sec the day," said
Captain Higgins in his address, "when
the Xorth Arm from Eburne to Xew
Westminster will hold up one solid
think of industries. I will see the day,
moreover, when the ships from the
seven seas will tie up at wharves
which will be built upon North Arm
shores that are at present overgrown
with ferns and willows. I will live
to see the day," thc veteran continued,
"when the Xorth Arm of the Fraser
will be as well known to the shippers
of the world as Burrard Inlet is today
���and both great harbors will combine
to make Greater Vancouver the vastest shipping city of modern times."
Mr. H. H. Stevens, M.P.. and Mr.
Taylor, the Ottawa representative
from Xew Westminster, gave a brief
account of the passing of the Xorth
Frater Harbor Bill through the House
nf Commons, and urged upon the gathering the fact that thc present government stands prepared to back the
Pacific Ceiast in the matter of harbor
improvements to any possible degree.
Mr. J. D. Taylor was really the father
"f   the   North   Fraser   Harbor   Bill,
Millions for North
Announcement has been made
that the Dominion Government
will place $200,000 to the credit of
the North Fraser Harbor vOmmis-
sicn when ail the members of that
body have been appointed. With
this sum the Government request
that the commissioners proceed to
prepare plans for the building of
the North Fraser Harbor, enlisting, if necessary, the services and
advice of the most eminent authorities.
This sum of $200,000 is being appropriated merely that a start may
be made upon the work of developing the North Arm. It is expected that such a sum, or even
larger, will be voted by the Government for North Arm development each year during the four
or five which will be required to
get  tne  channel in  shape.
Ri iris< m.
while Mr. Stevens presided over the
destinies eif the Burrard Inlet Harbor Bills passed through the House
at the last session. Mr. Taylor was
accorded a very warm welcome, but
no less happy than that given the
popular Vancouver member. Thc
two members  were guests of honor.
Mr. Stevens, in replying to the toasl
of the Dominion, departed from the
subject of harbor improvements and
said several striking tilings regarding
the necessity of Canadian men today
building lirmly and well the foundations of nationhood���planning for the
future rather than for today, and so
shaping their work that succeeding
generations may profit Mr. Stevens
toe.k up the question nf Oriental immigration and was loudly applauded
for thc firm stand he takes against
the policy of allowing the natives of
the  Far  East  Canadian citizenship.
Mr. R. C. Hodgson, a man who has
done as much for South Vancouver
and the North Arm of the Frase as
any other man, made a speech in proposing the toast te. the Dominion
which rang with Imperialistic utterances, pointing eetit the place in the
Empire whieh Greater Vancouver is
destined   In   play  commercially.
Among the men prominent iii Provincial and Doniinii.il affairs who attended were Mr. II. S. Clements,
M.P., Comox-Atlin, and Messrs. II. II
Wats,.n. C. E. Tisdall and A. II II.
McGowan,  M.L.A.  for  Vancouver
Hr Elliot S. Rowe. Commissioner
of thc i rogress Club, proposed the
Greater Vancouver toast, whieh was
ably responded to by Mayor T. S
Baxter. Acting-Reeve Charles Stuart
Campbell. South Vancouver; Reeve
Churchill, Poinl Grey: Reeve Bridge,

Vel of Burnaby. Mr. W. A. Blair.
Secretary of thc Vancouver Board of
Trade, proposed the toast to our
sister city, Xew Westminster, and this
wa> responded to by Mayor Gray.

assisted it through the committee
stage, was another speaker. Mr. li.
(',. Walker, chairman of the Joint Era-
-er Harbor Committee, a e.oard made
up fi representatives freun Seiuth Vancouver, Poinl Grey, Richmond and
Burnaby. ably discharged the duties
of toasl master.
Due sad feature eef the banquet was
the silent toast drunk to the memory
of the late .1 A. l.ee. former Mayor
of Xew1 Westminster, a man who never   in   his   life   missed  an   opportunity
; to  advance   the   possibilities   of     the

Mr.   K.   C.   HodgSOtl     hai     been
identified with the development eif
South Vancouver since June 1.1.
18K6, when lire' wiped e.ut the
struggling frontier village, now
the City of Vancuuver. On that
day, Mr. Hodgson's father, having
been burned "in of house and
home, took his family in a waggon
to whai is now Fraser street ami
River road, and there sought ref-
ugc in thc home of a settler, Mr.
Hodgson was In.rn at Chilliwack.
Ilis life story parallels that of the
growth of Greater Vancouver. Ile
is one of our nn.st successful business men. served for three years
as president uf the South Vancouver Board of Trade, and was chairman of the lirst board of School
Trustees elected in South Vancouver. Twenty years ago, Mr. Hodgson predicted the future of the
North Arm of the Fraser River,
and has never ceased to work to
bring thc possibilities of the freshwater  channel  before the  people.
The appointment of Mr. Hodgson to the Xorth Fraser Harbor
Commission has been most popu-
lar among all parties and sections.
Residents of Main street are pleased to note that a faint start in the
anti-dust campaign has been made
by thc municipality. Starting at
River road, one side of the streel has
been oiled to some distance north of
Rosenberg. That portion of Main
street is not densely built upon. How
ever, the dust has been nicely layed.
In the fullness of time the oiling process will be applied in the business
disirict between Twenty-fifth avenue
and Bodwell road.
Eraser street, the residents uf which
have been plagued with dust for many
year, is also due to get an oiling.

June 21 to July 21, were being advertised, bul in. person had, as yel,
received personal noiiees, and, as the
association had been unable to get
data, there was litlle chance to have
the matter discusseel intelligently, and
lile the necessary 51 per cent against
it, if the arrangements made by the
Council  were   not   satisfactory.
A Committee consisting of W. J.
Prowse, Chas. N. James, II. W. llal-
berg and J. It. Holden, was appointed to secure more definite information from the Council regarding paving, and to consult the engineer on
the matter Mr. Roht. McBride was
present to express his views, thinking it was a public meeting. Hc deprecated the work done by thc association which was very much resented by a number uf the members, who
took advantage of the criticism to
point out thc useful work that had
been accomplished, and its past history was rehearsed for the benefit of
the new comers. Mr. McBride was
very anxious to see the municipality
secure Industrial sites. If something
was not done soon, he said, people
who bad boughl b'ts. would have to
gei to Coquitlam, Port Mann, or some
oilier   place,   to   secure   employment.
The Fraser River, be said, was admirably   adapted   for   ship-building.
The secretary was instructed to
have the books in shape for auditing
at thc next meeting.
Appeal for Pleasure Grounds
Tin- residents uf llurnaby and
South Vancouver are about l" send
in a petition to the Central Park Agricultural Association, requesting the
granting of that portion of ground
een which the ass.iciation holds a
lease, jusl north uf the 11. C. E. R.
tramline, t" the park commissioners,
on condition that they clear, grade.
and subdivide it for the athletic spurt.
Such premises are said tu be needed
very much, especially among the
children, who have no place suitable
for their game--. It woulil also serve

Though 40,000 people live in Seeulb
Vancouver, the district is practically
wiibuui any direct representation in
either the Dominion or Provincial
House uf Parliament. This fact is
beginning to impress itself upon the
minds of the members uf the Municipal Council, who, the other day, decided to have a census taken eef the
municipality, looking forward tei a
redistribution   of   electoral   seats.
Mr. 1\ Carter-Cotton represents
thc district of Richmond in the Provincial House. In so doing. Ihe responsibilities of looking after the interests of Point Grey, South Vancouver, North Vancouver, anil an assort-
e-d collection of other municipalities
fall upon his shoulders.
According to Eastern Canadian
precedents. South Vancouver alone
sheiuld have at least two representatives in Victoria.
As regards the Ottawa House. Mr.
II. II. Stevens represents the Vancouver Electoral District, and Mr. J. D.
Taylor looks after the interests of
N'ew Westminster. These are the
only two men representing at least
250.IXX) people. The situation is ri-
iliculieiis. And probably no one knows
it better than either Mr. Stevens or
Mr. Taylor.
Whether this preparation for redistribution has any connection with the
unusual activity among party organizations in South Vancouver is a question. Of late the various Conservative clubs have been very active. It
is also to be noted that there has
Sprung to life in the community a
very strong, healthy, Liberal organization. The Conservatives have always been rather strong in South
Vancouver, and up to this year there
was no really active Liberal organization.
Among the newcomers who have
been entering South Vancouver at the
ral; of 5.0(H) a year for the past five
.er -ix years (here have been hundreds
eef   families   of   rich     farmers     from
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. These, new citizens all pu-scss
Strong Liberal leanings It is this
fact that lias contributed t'i tlu- formation of tin Liberal associations
which bait -prting up ill each ward.
Many rumors are current that a
general election may In called al any
lime. These- re-pulls have enlivened
the parly organizations in South Vancouver and il. doubt have bail a
sl re eng bearing on  the Council taking
up the subject uf redistribution.
Slinuld South Vancouver bc granted twu members in each house as will
likely be the ease, there is said Iu be
many local men who would quickly
grab tbe opportunity lu light for the
chance of distinguishing themselves
in  the larger political  furuins.

Ten thousand coal miners on Vancoaver Island are on strike at Nanaimo. Our cut shows a recent mass meeting cf the striking workmen at that
city. The strike seems io be an outgrowth of the fact that the coal operators have been taking advantage of the generosity of the Provincial
Government in favoring them. The operators refused to permit inspection of the mines as stipulated in the law. and the men have many
other grievances real ?nd imag nary, but mostly real, it would appear. The tie-up works a severe hardship cn the wives and families of the
miners, to say nothing of the severe effects upon all lines of trade on the Pacific Coast. The Provincial Government has been much criticized
for not stepping in E.nd endeavoring to bring about peace.

TO CORRESPONDENTS : We will not print anonymoua Jettera

EVER since the dawn of civilization re.aels have been
the first factor in tin development of B country. The
old Romans, hundreds of years ago, built great substantial
roads through Briton and Gaul before these wildernesses
were colonized. Today, the Dominion Government is
building a $230,000,000 highway across the Dominion oi
Canada through a wilderness which is not yet developed.
Good roads have always preceded colonization and settlement. In South Vancouver, where wc have a population
second in size only to the city of Vancouver among the
cities of British Columbia, we have backwood trails i.r
business streets. It would almost seem that in South
Vancouver many of the conditions which usually govern
communities are absolutely reversed.
Permanent paving of Main and Fraser streets will be a
public improvement the value of which to South Vancouver as a whole in the years to ceemc no man can estimate.
Anything worth while is worth paying for. Thc cost to.
day for the paving of these two streets will be great; but
the business development that will follow in the wake of
such splendid work will ultimately cause the present expense to fade into insignificance.
Under present conditions property on cither Main or
Fraser street is almost untenable for business purposes.
In wet weather these thoroughfares develop into veritable
mud beds; and in dry weather, the mud beds crystallize
and the dust, mixed with a winter's refuse, is blown by the
winds over the community.
And we have a population of 40,000���a population which

A DESPATCH from Sydney, Australia, deplores thc
failure of Hon. George E. I'osler's rcciprocily nego-
tiatiuiis wilh the Commonwealth Government, and states
that large quantities of meat arc being exported from
New Zealand I., Vancouver. The Victoria "Times" wants
to know what becomes of this New Zealand meal, in face
uf tile extortionate prices paid feir meal throughout Brit-
Mi Columbia. AH this N���� Zealand meat, on arrival at
Vancouver, says lhe Vicleeria "Times," is shipped to
Seattle, where, notwithstanding American duties, it is
placed em the market at prices ranging from three cents
per pound below the rates charged for American meat.
The Seattle prices feer leecal meat are staled to be at lea-t
three cents below the current prices ill Victoria, B. C.
How docs this affect the Canadian consumer?
In Victoria there is practically no competition in the
meat industry. The prices are apparently fixed by some
mysterious meat combine, and arc not Influenced by tin'
laws of supply and demand. While the people eif Seattle,
U. S., have Ihe advantage of the competition between New
Zealand meat and local meal, the Canadian consumer has
to pay six cents more than hc would pay for N'ew Zealand
meat were he living in Seattle. And this advantage of
competitive prices in a United States city is gained through
the subsidizing by Canada of steamers between N'ew
Zealand and Vancouver! The Canadian Governmenl subsidizes steamers to bring cheaper meat tn the door of the
United Slates consumer, while closing the cheaper markets against the Canadian consumer. "No truck with the
Yankee!" was the cry of the big interests in 1911. Today
the Yankee gets the "truck" iu thc form of subsidized
meat transportation, while the Canadian pays the subsidy
and buys his meat in a dearer market. The fight for freer
markets must be carried on.���Toronto "Globe."

Erwin F. Smith, world famous for
what he knows about plant diseases,
we.rks for Uncle Sam at $4,(K)() a year.
The Rockefeller institute offered him
$10,000. Ile wouldn't take it. Say-
he likes bis job, finds it full of interesi
and usefulness, has all he needs to
live on and doesn't see why he should
bother   tu   change.
And,   indeed,  why   should  be?
Above tin- line of urgent needs, tbe
durable satisfactions of life are really
quite independenl of money,
Dr. Smith finds his pleasure ill tilling interesting, useful work���work feer
work's sake. That saves him a lot of
bother to which lots of us arc prone,
fur be doesn't have iu worry about
llie Saturday night pay envelope���he
knows Uncle Sam's good for it: and
he isn't at all tempted to watch the
clock so as to be tile first to cut and
run  when  lhe legal  workday  is  over.
Moreover, he has friends���folk lie
likes to chum with, soul mates whose
fellowship makes up life's chiefest
charm. Why cut away from them to
go in pursuit of unnceded dollars?
Honest, now don't you think he is
wise? Wouldn't all of us be truly
happier if we dug deeper for the pleasures in the jobs we have and gave
less heed to the cash receipts?
Don't misunderstand. He'd have to
change if lie didn't get a living wage
���an income that bridged his modest
needs without imposing a burden of
continual fretting lest the ends
shouldn't meet. That much is a fundamental of happiness everywhere;
and somehow society will have to arrange it for ALL if it is ever to get
the pangs of poverty out of its system.

MONSTER petitions are being circulated throughout
South Vancouver urging upon the Municipal Council amendments to the water regulations which will give
thc ratepayers free water for their lawns and gardens.
Those circulating thc petition are said to bc using with
great force the "city beautiful" argument.
Recently there was a public meeting in a certain section of South Vancouver where orators condemned every
public man and every public official and every public enterprise in the district. There was one man at the meeting who came in late and sat patiently listening to the
various speeches. He was an unkempt individual, contact
with whom would have, in a startling way, impressed upon
one the golden qualities of the bath tub, and the value of
ventilation in rooms where public meetings arc held.
When about everything else under the sun had been discussed and torn to pieces, this man jumped to his feet
and declared:
"Gentlemen, what wc want in South Vancouver is a
city beautiful. We want public playgrounds, public flower
gardens, public boulevards, and  "
"Public bathing houses," finished a gentleman sitting
near the representative from the  great  unwashed.
The city beautiful idea is worthy of all praise and assistance. No* is the time for the Municipality of South
Vancouver to lay the foundations for a beautiful cily in
the years which are to come. But to have- up a city beautiful plan in detail at the present moment would be more
or less fully un the part of lhe councillors. First we
must have a sewage system beautiful, a few paved streets
beautiful, a water works system beautiful, a gas plant
beautiful, and a competent and reliable business administration beautiful
Hating  gul   a   few   of  these   necessities   beautiful,   then
we may proceed to wurk out the decorations beautiful.

lVyiilST valuable of all the subdivisions lhat have been
I'-*- placed upon the market in Western Canada in recent
year-, will be that certain parcel of land lying between
Hastings and Pender, and Cambie and Hamilton Streets,
in the City of Vancouver���the site of the Old Court
House. This land is owned by tbe Provincial Government,
and is located right in the commercial heart of the great
city. On every side of it great business blocks have
been reared into the air and all the streets surrounding
it thunder with heavy traffic. Here is thc only little
plot in Vancouver's business district that might have been
turned into a beautiful breathing space as long as the
city lasts. But. these be times of commerce and the
Provincial Government says that these few feet of soil
must lend themselves to the support of great steel and
concrete buildings. On thc land at present stands the
mossy building which for years housed Vancouver's
law courts. And on the tower of this ancient structure,
blindfolded, with a sword in one hand and the balances
in thc other, stands thc figure of the Goddess of Justice.

A round the moving picture shows
in any town discovers many variations in the quality of that universal
entertainment. So much is written
about the moving picture as a popular
educator that it becomes necessary
to exercise some discrimination in
selecting the picture.
There are as many kinds of moving
pictures as there are books in a large
library. Some of them correspond
to the latest sensational fiction,
some to blood and thunder story,
some to the problem novel, and
occasionally one stands in the same
relation to the others that a classic
in literature does to the latest best
seller. The movie that exploits the
cowboy, the Indian, the burning cabin
and the rescued heroine in as many
combinations as are to be had out
of a pack of cards is the dime novel
of the business. There is also the
sentimental story with realistic touches
and as much thrill as a girl can extract from "The Deserted Bride," with
no effort expended In the reading.
Not so satisfying to the emotions,
perhaps, but still full of interest and
certainly of more "educational" value,
come up-to-date reproductions of
current events. These have actual,
practical worth. What wc might call
the classics arc lhe presentations of
the big events of the world, like the
Durbar in India, work on the Panama
Canal and the funeral of King
Edward. In this class, too, may bc
admitted the pictures of unusual
scenes in remote places. like caravans in the Sahara, animals in the
Arctic and the Africian wild life
shown in this city last year.
The moving picture is a power for
good and tremendous educational
value if you select the right picture.

Fault has been found with the
Ottawa city water supply, so that
prudent people have been drinking
from springs whose purity is guaranteed.
The Ottawa Journal relates this
Incident i
"An old man with eme eye and ii"
necktie, closely followed by a red
Irish setter, limped up to ihe bottle
of spring water near lhe doof of the
City   Halt   about   nuoii.
"'Ain't there no tap water?' he
growled i" a reporter who was imbibing some of the guaranteed, purified, sterilized, and utterly Innocuous fluid.
"'X.e, but this is alright,' said the
Ial ter. '
"'I    never   elrink   nothing   but    lap
water.' was ihe surly rejoinder.
'There's me worms In tap water, and
it don't do no harm. That mebce
harmless, bul   I  dunno.'"
The old man was not altogether
wrong. On the whole, taking tin-
whole supply of water, tap water is
better than well water, freer from
germs and worms. When tap water
goes wrong, there is a tremendous
public outcry, and this outcry is right
and wise. It means that the wrong
will be righted. Of late the sanitary
officials have taken to chlorinating
the water, which not only makes it
safer to drink, but i.s a danger signal,
telling you that there is something
wrong with the source of supply.
But for the purity of well water,
vou must make your own investigations. It may taste good and yet be
polluted by a cesspool or other re-
c.-placle of sewerage. I have a well in
which I take great pride and pleasure.

Action Against B. C. E. R. and Municipality   Non-suited
In the action of Siiipman against
the B. C. E. R. company, tlie muni- i
cipality nf Smith Vancouver and '
Messrs. Eranklin and Shepherd heard'
in the Supreme Court, Vancouver, |
lasl Thursday. Mr. Justice Clement j
granted a  non-suit.
It appears, from the evidence, that j
Shipman was driving a hearse along |
Eraser Avenue .ene day during the
period that excavation wurk was pro.
ceeding for the ear line, when the
horses ran away and plunged ini"
a ditch, S feet wide by 14 feet deep.
No damage was directly done, but as
a result of the accident it is stated
that when the horses and vehicle had
regained the street level the hearse
toppled over, and as a result the-
driver was thrown out sustaining a
fractured leg. Hence thc action for
iie.th the It. C. E. R. Company and
Smith Vancouver Municipality denied
negligence, claiming that if there had
been any carelessness, it was on the
part of the contractors.
With the granting of thc non-suit
the 15. C. E. R. Company became
liable for costs of the action to
Messrs.   Franklin   and  Shepherd,   thc

There collies a time in llle life of
the individual when he seems t'i stauel
at the great divide, where future
character and destiny arc determined.
Manhood is upon him. Life sheeiild
have made liim think; given him ideas
as  lo what  Ile  would  like  tee be. anel
motives tee supply the necessary impetus. Vancouver il twenty-seven
years obi; it has hail a somewhat
giddy youth; paternal warnings have
been losnded, lhat unless it sobered
down a little, remittances wouhl be
withdrawn and so the yeiung city is
steadying itself, facing the future with
a new look e,f seriousness, and groping for ideas.
A none too friendly critic from the
South, has just been telling American
readers that although we have many
faults and failings iu liritish Columbia, our intelligence is above the average. This may account for the fact
that the search for ideas has not
been barren. The idea was born sometime ago (hat if a voluntary organization could bc formed whose members were interested in the welfare
of the city, an organization untrain-
incled   by   traditions     or     officialism
ing mure and more a clearing linusc
for the overflowing work of the city;
for dealing with nobody's work
which often touches human life and
civic welfare more closely, than the
definite and official work, that can
be handled by the professional staff
eef the city, or by an individual corporation.
Here, feir instance, is a man in a
central state of America, who wishes
io starl a soap factory in Vancouver.
Ile writes to the freight department
of the C. P. R.. and the letter finds
its way to the Progress Club, lie is
met a very geeod ortnographer, but lie1
may be a very good soap maker; and
there is this to be said that if good
spelling were one of the keys of
heaven, some of us would have poeir
chance  of  salvation.
Other letters concern other industries and the Industries Committee
is busy circularising the tradesmen and
manufacturers of the town; collecting data as to the kind of manufactures represented in Vancouver; the
amount of capital invested, the extent of the  payroll���voluntary  labor
expectations of the future. Any plans
and schemes they may have are discussed; they are shown around the
city and the atmosphere eif welcome
and cordiality surround them during
the period of their visit SO far as the
Progress Club is concerned
There an' frequenl e.ill- concerning business chances in either teiwns.
as well as in the city, and here much
useful information has bein collected, and is placed at lhe service of
inquirers. A journeyman plumber, for
example, wishes to start business for
himself, but may think that Vancouver is over-crowded. Is there any
chance in Revelstoke? The business
statistics of Revelstoke are consulted and information is given as to the
number, e,f plumbers in Revelstoke.
Interior towns are encouraged to send
reports as to the industries that arc
wanted and valuable information is
thus stored up fnr the benefit of the
N'ew coiners are ill doubt again
about house accommodation, apartments and the like, or Vancouver
residents, who wish to change their
quarters.   Their  inquiries  and   many
publicity work is done by furnishing
special illustrated articles upon re-
quest, Scarcely a day passes that
does not bring some request for information showing, in tlie shape of
an illustrated story, iln- present and
comparative condition of Vancouver.
A news letter is sent mit twice a

is getting a date line in these papers.

Have a house feir lhe bens and

natures will prompt them tei go to

ivasmis why hens slinuld nut roust in

Iloiisecleaiiing, a genuine old-fashioned housecleaning that leaves the
men almost bereft uf expletives and
lhe women weary in body if not in
mind, generally penetrates tu every
Hunk and comer nf the house; even
the old things accumulated in the attic are tumbled out and looked over,
and cither given away or laid reverently by tei collect another year's
dust. But how virtuous wc feel
when it is all done and wc sit down,
clad iu fresh raiment, knowing that
our house is set in order.
As we come tei the end of thc old
year let us summon the handmaiden's
resolution and industry and get
through our mental and mural house-
cleaning. Why should our house be
lumbered with the worn-out furniture of tradition because forsooth it
is  exactly like  Mrs.  So-and-So's.
Let us sweep the rooms with goodwill, and opening wide the windows,
allow the sweet winds from the sea
of like to blow through them. Let
the crust of idleness, the mould of
custom, thc moth of envy be thoroughly evicted. Take down the torn
curtains of prejudice and hang fresh
ones, woven of love, at the shining
Then remove the images of mourning and hang the walls with pictures
of joy; and forget not the attic,
where the dust of time falls thickest, because it is so seldom disturbed; fur why should thc accumulated
rubbish of bygone years, the uld broken toys and idols be left to clutter
up lhe fair new year? If they are
nf nn further use tn us, let us give
In those in need of them; if they are
useless, for heaven's sake let ns put
them in the garbage bin and start
the new year fresh and free.

George Rennie, Tom Rennie and
Hughie Gifford are much in evidence

ihey add considerably to the game as
a spectacle.
The Vancouver defence played a
good solid game, and taking the rearranged team all through, ihey gave
a better display than in their previous
visits t" the grassy gradient here,
with the defence was the soundest part
I of the team. There was very little
scoring in the lirst half, the cup
holders snatching a goal in each quarter, but there were any number of
good plays spoiled sometimes by the
very slippery state of the grass. The
players kept their feet better as the
game proceeded, and in the last quarter the turf was not  at all had.
As in their custom, Westminster
became holy terrors in the third quarter, needing only the stimulus of a
goal by Sibby Nicholl to uncover
their entire battery of offense. Nevertheless, it was lung sheets that mostly found the mark in this encounter,
the  greenshirted   defence   el,.ing   well

A Mild Smoke
Taeoma fans after having seen thc
champs in action in this city against
lhe Tigers, do not think the Seattle
team shows the same class as the
Vancouver Heavers. True, they have
defeated the Tigers two games, but
riot by heller ball playing. It was
the erratic twirling nf the local pitchers that caused the defeat.
The old-lime vim and hustle of the
champs dues not show as it did last
season. The champs hit in streaks,
and but fnr some good baserunning
would imt win half their games. This
applies inversely to the' Heavers, who
win by hard hilling, but lose by bad
Il is the weakness of their opponents and not their own strength that
has placed the champs mi top. The
four other clubs are far below par.

The summer season of the British C olumbia Thoroughbred Association commences this afternoon, and the best year in the history of the sport in
this province is assured. There are more horses and better ones than ever here before including that grand mare Meadow, the queen of the
Western turf world, truly the greatest three-year-old in the West, and Shadrack, the champion of the two-year-old division. The list of owners
shows a great many prominent b reeders who have never before raced in Canada, headed by Dr. C. E. Rogers, the millionaire Texas breeder.
Among the jockeys are all the leading riders in the West, including Groth, who topped the list of winning riders at Alan. Pete Hill the
champion race rider of America last year and J. Murphy, the colored boy who is proclaimed the best rider of his race since the days of Isaac

Mr. J. Mullett's Report to the Municipal Council
There has heen considerable discussion, if neet agitation, among some
of the residents of South Vancouver,
anent the water question, The
"Chinook" h:is given publicity to the
views of Mr. Chai Rayner, of Quebec
streel. whieh gentleman has alio ventilated his ideas in the columns e,f
several Vancouver papers. The wile>le
matter is se. open t" question that
the  "Chinook"  does  not  intend,  al
the present moment, tie take any de
cided stand, one way nr thc other, nn
the matter. The fact remains, however, that Seeuth Vancouver has in
Mr. J. Mullett. waterworks superintendent, one eef the ablest men in that
official   capacity  em   the  Ceeast.     It   il
therefore, unly right that his views
em thi- water question ihould receive
careful attention.

guilds under contract with Carter,

days behind time in delivery, in consequence holding up the progress of
the work. The 100,000 gallon tank
under contract hy Langley Co. is progressing very favorably, and the li.
C. Equipment have started work on
the 750,000 gallon stand pipe at Central Park. Boring operations tor
water on the C P, R. property are
giving very good results.
Everything in general is in very
good working order. Sonic complaints have been made abeiut charges
for garden sprinkling, but will leave
that for the committee to decide, I
would esteem it a great favor if any
councillor intends to tin paving on
any street, to let me know, so I may
get in estimates and supplies for said
work where it affects water works
construction. Notice from J. F, Armstrong, chairman of the board of investigations of the supply of water
from Seymour Creek, has been referred to the solicitor for report.
I wish to call your attention to the
Revised Statutes of Hritish Columbia,
Section 3, Chapter 239.
"Whereas all monies due for the
supply or' use of water, herein called  a  water  rate, and  all   costs    and
charges in connection therewith, shall
be a charge e.n tlu land, building anil
premises, where the water is supplied,
and may if due t" a municipality, be
levied and collected in the same man-
mer as municipal rates and taxes, are
by law recoverable, and if due to a
company, may in addition tee all either
remedies given by this Act be recovered by action in any court eef cemi-
petent jurisdiction, and the municipality eer ceempany may further shut
off the water from the premises."
1. It has been suggested that wdiere
water is turned eiff on account of nonpayment of water rate, that a charge
of $1.00 be made for turning water
on again,
2. Any person who vacates any
premises, that have been supplied
with water, from the water works, and
who is desirous of discontinuing the
use of same, shall give notice at the
Smith Vancouver Water Rates Office, and in default thereof, the rates
will be charged until such neetice is
given en- water turned off by any official of tlu Water Works.
3. Where water has been turned on
after the lirst of each current half
half year, the rate to be charged from
the date of turning on to the end of
the current half year, and twenty-one
days be allowed from such date of
turning on to obtain the 20 per cent,

the advisability of making an alteration in the scale of wages paid to laborers in the employ of the municipality. The present uniform rate of

the municipality and the men. The I
