B. C. Gas Company Make Important Announcement  Regarding
This Municipality and Point Grey
The question of a gas franchise
iur Seeuth Vancouver is -lill engaging the attention of tbe Council and
the ratepayers. While ihe Council ii
making an investigation into the possibilities of ii municipally-owned
plant and while twei companies are
offering inducements (eer a franchise
in this municipality, the ratepayers
arc convinced of one thing anel thai
i- that South Vancouver should be
able tei offer gas tei its residents at as
early a date aa possible. It is known
that in several cases the fact that
Seeuth Vancouver has ue,t gas, has
been a serious hindrance tee settlement. It is obvious that ii Seeuth
Vancouver is to attain to modern
conditions that a gas system will have
to be operated in this municipality,
in lhe near future. The- conditions
under which gas will be offered te>
the residents of the municipality will
lie determined entirely by the ratepayers, They will have to give the
final consent t.> any system which
may be operated in Semlli Vancouver.
Economy will, lie a large extent, gov-
ern the people iu the selection nf the
system which is I" he- operated in
South Vancuuver. In this respect it
is i,ulv natural thai the possibilities
��� if a municipally-owned plant should

"In seeking a gas franchise in
S'eiuh Vancouver we have in mind a

A letter from Mr. J. S. Gordon, inspector of Bchools, Vancouver, was
read at a South Vancouver school
board meeting on Monday in which
it was staled thai there were about
Sei Smith Vancouver suulciils attending King Edward High School, 25
being children of ratepayers in Vancouver city. The letter added that
a considerable sum might have in be
obtained freun South Vancouver if
the city were lo collect from the
municipality  next year.
Trustee Campbell suggested that
the trustees should write ami express
their thanks fe.r receiving Semth Van-
cemver pupils in lhe pasl, anil lhat in

Reeve Kerr rang lhe true SOUnd
when he called ihe Council's atten-
tieeii tee the desirability 'ef the municipality possessing industrial sites that
could   be   nffereil   either   free   "r  at   a
nominal renl tn manufacturers. li
has been almost a criminal neglect
in the past councils lhat no provisions
have been maele fnr any industry t"
locate here, Councils iu ilu- past
ought to have made seime provision;
opportunity ha- been allowed to step
pa-t and every day only adds to the
aggravation nf the- matter. Ai the
pn-ent lime' beeih Vancouver anel
South Vancouver could support many
industries were' conditions anomalous
in ih. se of Easl rn cities This i-
ne,t -..; every industry located in
Western Canada is handicapped, firsl
by ilu' difference of wages earned by
ihe worker nf the Wesl from thai "i"
| ihe East.   This might he p.inly over-
rcalizes   lhe   prices   at   which   industrial   sites   are   hehl.
The holding up of land at this
priii' ���- -imply throttling industry.
li i- ilu- curse nf tlie speculative times
in which wc live. It i- a mortgage
em ile- future prosperity of South
Vaneniiver by at least a ele ,xe-n years.
It is acting as a drag nn iln- development ami ihe industry of the' municipality. The demand for land does
neit warrant lhe- prices askeel. Hence
the reason why ilu- Municipal Coun-
e-il should seek tei secure as many
-ii. - a- possible. The more sites
held hy the' Council the easier will
ii le' t" keep -ile- from soaring inn
high. Every encouragemenl should
therefore be given to assisl the Council in their path  of progress.

This cut shows a tract of land which fronts upon the North Arm of the Fraser River.   Along the South Vancouver fresh waterfrontage are hundreds of acres of ideal industrial sites, with    splendid    rail    and    water
accommodation, still clothed in the primeval forest, and yet it is said Greater Vancouver, with a quarter million of people, has no ground to offer new industries.   The biggest and most   important   question
the South Vancouver Council has ever discussed or will ever try to solve is that of cheap sites for industries on the North Arm.   Without industries South Vancouver and Greater    Vancouver
must come to an untimely doom <N

a part, the new one will fit and lit correctly without alteration in the slightest degree.
The Cadillac Company is prepared to replace any part
cf any car it ever built. No Cadillac user was ever obliged
to discard his car because he was unable to obtain some
needed part. No Cadillac user was ever compelled to under

made to order because the maker had gone out of business,
had discontinued making parts for old models, or had to
depend upon some outside parts maker to supply them.

A Type of House in Collingwood
There are many fine dwellings now
'/being erected in the Collingwood district. Here is the picture of a nice,
ccomfortable house built for Mr.
��� Greenhalgh at Collingwood West.
The builder was Mr. C. Rickard, of
<Collingwood   East,   who   has   put  up
several fine dwellings in South Vancouver. This modern house of seven
rooms is finished inside in old mahogany color. It is hand-finished, attractive, with open fireplace and altogether a type of house which is
making Collingwood such an attractive residential place.

Men's  Association
Why do met more of the business
men of Collingwood and district join
ihis association, Unless a good many
new members roll up to the meeting
al ih- Collingwood Institute nexl
I luir-day week, Ilu- answer musl be
that il i-, because there is a plentiful
lack of public spirit. The Collingwood and District Business Men's
Association deserves more interest
and supp.ert fnr it is doing good
wrk, a.- a review eif ilie proceedings
of  the lasl   few  meetings  will  show.
Mr. VV. II. Kent brought up the
subject eif the necessity of a postal
delivery for the district. The result
was that the association, acting with
the Hoard of Trade, appears to have
convinced the postal authorities that
ColJingwood has sume claims to consideration. It wemhl be premature to
make any announcement, but it seems
safe te, prophecy that a postal (delivery will at no distant date be extended to Central  Park.
The association has been "hammering away" at the need of better
accommodation for passengers and
freight at Collingwood and Earl's
Road. There arc signs that num
crous letters and delegations have
made an impression on the B. C. E.
R. Company. Surely it cannot bc
long before the importance of Collingwood as a traffic centre and revenue producing district is fitly recognized.
It can be placed to the credit of
the   association   that   the   ambulance

Very early'in the meeting .1 curious
situation arose. The secretary and

delegate! from the Amalgamated Carpenters, had in tin- interim trail
reel iheir membership to the L'nited
Brothe rhood ol Carpi nti 1 - and Join

delegates McVety and Trotter acting

secretary, J VV. Wilkinson was electee ley 57 votes to 24, the only competitor teer the office being J. Kavanagh, who resigned his office as
Sergeant at Arms in e.relcr to accept
nomination, W. Poxcroft, the old
statistician was re-elected by acclamation. When the new Sergeant-at-
Arins had ie- be elected there were
three nominees: Messrs Kavanagh,
Pipes .-iinl McBeth. The hrst ballot

Ueth 9. None of the nominees having a clear majority of votes, McBeth
was dropped out and Pipes elected

The council received a letter from
ex-Mayor Taylor re the possibility
of arranging for a lecture to be delivered by a Mr. J. 7. White, of Chi-
cago, who is to visit Vancouver
shortly. The Henry George Association of Chicago had written Mr.
Taylor asking his good! offices in assisting Mr. White to form a Single
Tax Society in Vancouver. The
council diel 11 it see ils way clear lo
take any action towards calling a
meeting  feer  llie  purpose.
At ihe previous meeting the council instructed the secretary i" write

nie- ting the press fe edi rs 1 if lhe city
had been goi together for the purpose
of forming a union of the nun en
gaged in that work. The preliminary meeting had resulted in betwe n
twenty and thirty members joining,
and it was expected thai -in,nly the
council would be augmented by the
affiliation of this new body.
The council appoint id a committee a short time ago t" inquire into
the allegation thai the local branch
of the V. M. C. A. was supplying
men i" take the place of the painters

the council and produced an application form from the Y. M C A.
she.wing thai the men hael been
charged !?2 for iheir jobs, but thai
the application was framed in such
a way that il was made l" appear as
though it was aii application for membership. The council decided thai
the matter was worth following up
and the committee was continued for
ilu purpose fi gathering information
tn stop such a thing from recurring.
The council displayed a close interest in the application of the Vancouver Board of Trade t" ihe government i" siispcnel ilu- duty on coal
ceiiinng from ilu- United Stales whilsl

WHILE  it  is satisfactory  that  the  South  Vancouver
Council has at least aw.eke to thc urgent necessity
i,t   securing   industrial   sites   on   the   North   Arm   OI   the
Frasei kiver. it is to be hoped that the matter will nol
he merely pigeon-holed. Successive councils have too
Often discussed, resolved, e.r postponed the taking of such
or similar steps t.e encourage the location of industries
in the municipality. In the meantime the price of land
available continues to increase, making every delay e,f
serious financial consequence.
It is to the credit of the S.mih Vancouver Board of
Trade  that  iis  members  initiated  the  proposal  to  buy
industrial sites in the municipality.   This puhlic body has
been  fighting for  the adoption  eef this measure  for  the
past three or four years, but the Council has been slow
to realize the insistency e,f the need.    Here is an instance
-.here llle mutual consultation of these two public bodies
light have heen reasonably expected to result in speedier
ciieen.    This  question  of nu.re  active  co-operation  he-
veen   civic  hoelies  ami  boards   of  tr.nK-   uas   .me  nf  the
latters most strongly urged hei'..re the Municipal Commission   held  hist  year  ill   the  three  leading  cities  'if  the
province.   The ultimate responsibility leer the civic expenditure must, of course, rest  wilh  lhe Council, hut  lhat
more sympathetic ami serious consideration of board of
tradv proposals is advisable  cannol  he well gainsaid.
The culpable negligence of South Vancouver councils
in making provision for inducing manufacturers tee locate
in the municipality in the past makes il only more imperative that no time .should mew he tost in lhe active mcas
arcs necessary, In securing the establishment of factories
it now comes t.. a matter nf competition between the dif
ferent municipalities. A case in point was the recent application a. the Semth Vancouver Council eif a lumber
ceempany proposing lee locate in Greater Vancouver. The
same ceempany applied tee the Burnaby council and possibly to other civic bodies, and it will he instructive to kneiw
which district is ultimately chosen.
The urgency of this industrial sites matter cannot be
ii  persistently  kept   in   view.     11   is  now  acknowledged
i the best informed puhlic ami business men  that the
lure prosperity of Vancouver ami South Vancouver will
rgely depend upon  the establishment of more factories
and  mills.    South  Vancouver  is  being rapidly  populated
by  residents   of  an   industrial   class.     Construction   work
cannot he indefinitely relied up. .11 to till the dinner pails,
nor will capital tied up in real eslate increase the circulation of money in the municipality.    A steadily increasing payroll is what is badly wanted iu South Vancouver,
and until industrial sites at reasonable prices or other inducements are offered many intending manufacturers will
hesitate about locating here.

It will thus he seen that there is a surprising similarity
in lhe lasies or Interests of these two statesmen although
there liny he some difference in the application. Iii some
things Roosevelt is quite unique. Ile is for instance a
mighty hunter of big game; a ruthless destroyer, some
say, of liee-is. hears, am!1 ligers. Hut he is at the same
lime an ardent naturalist and animal lover, spending heiurs
wiih Sir Edward Grey in observing the habits of birds
in England. Thai Roosevelt, afler spending a few days
with the Uriiish Foreign Secretary in studying natural
history sheiuld afterwards proceed to the London Guildhall and lecture Creat Britain on her Egyptian policy is
only another striking example of lhe diversity of his in-
lercsis. Il shows that while observing the habits of animal life on lhe hanks of lhe Nile he yel found.' lime lo
sludy ihe Egyptian question on the spot.
THE decision e,f the Smith Vancouver Ceeinicil  lei pave
with   w 1   blocks   both   Main   Sireet     anil     h'raser
Street from lhe cily boundary to River Roail is an ini-
peertant step in the direction of local improvements. These
two reeaels are llie principal  thoroughfares in South  Van-
couver and their development freem a business standpoint
is bound to he greatly accelerated by ihe proposed paving.
Credil is especially due I" ihe Dominion Creosoting

in payment of the work. The exact .total cost eif the
work cannol now he given but ii is understood t" lie ill

The Dominion Creosoting Company, of which Mr. \Y.
II    Harvey is president, has by accepting the contract on
-,he conditions named, set a praiseworthy example of
practical confidence iu the bright future eef South Vancouver. As the mills and plant of the company are situated in the municipality there is additional reasem for
congratulating the firm on their noteworthy enterprise.
SPEAKING at Victoria Heights thc other day, Mr. R.
C. Hodgson, president of South Vancouver Board
of Trade made a timely appeal to ratepayers tei vote on
matters according to the interests eif the whole, and not
of merely a part, of the municipality. He asked that ratepayers should1 sink, when necessary, their own particular
pet local schemes in veiling for eether proposals which
have the general interests of the whole municipality at
There are times, of course, when the needs of a particular district e,r ward are see imperative as to require immediate attention. Probably also lhe carrying out of such
particular proposals will contribute to the general advantage "f the municipality.   But there are unfortunately
some ratepayers  who cannol   see beyond the interests of
-"-���lir ow.   little sictieni.   They will vote for bylaws which
lude  expenditures  in  their  own  ward  and  will  vote
ainst. or abstain from voting iu favor of, other bylaws
tich concern ihe whole' of ihe municipality.   There are
sessions when  il  is more'  Important and urgent  to pass
a gas or school bylaw than otic for the rocking eef a certain street, although possibly the latter proposal may als.i
deserve iin   electors' approval.
One '���!  lhe mosl  discouraging features in  lhe efforls to
secure municipal improvements is the apathy eif a considerable proportion of electors S.>m.- ratepayers while
they may 'a.I he opposed l" certain proposals submitted
for their decision abstain from voting because such ibi
not appear to directly affect their particular Interests or
their particular district. They feirgel, e>r do not sufficiently consider, that probably indirectly the measures in question may vitally affect the- interests 'if their own ward as
part of the whole municipality.
No doubt the warel system is partly responsible for this
spirit of sectionalism. Hut even with the ward system of
municipal governmenl in force it is not necessary for
electors to restrict Iheir interest in the municipality to
Iheir own district. N'eer need the councillors confine their
activities to lhe wards ihey represent. For it must he

liCENTLV Edison referred to motion pictures as like
ly to prove one eef the most important aids to cdu
cation ever devised hy human wit. He referred also to
the marvellous power of rapid photography and the
moving picture in revealing to the observer the development of things otherwise unseeable to the naked eye.
Some wonderfully interesting examples of this effect have
been recently shown in Vancouver moving picture shows.
As regards the educational aspect of the moving picture there can be no doubt of its future usefulness in teaching children such subjects as geography, history, natural
history audi the elements of natural science. It is a generally accepted axiom that a child can grasp and retain
in his memory what he sees more easily than what he
hears. Physical geography for instance could be taught
in schools by tbe aid of moving pictures with greater
success than by oral teaching alone. The moving picture arouses the absorbed interest of the children and
they are the more likely to retain tbe knowledge thus
derived than by the often half-hearted lessons they con
by ear or learn from text books. The moving picture
by arousing interest in a country or a subject in a child's
receptive mind would probably also lend interest to the
books in which the subjects are described. Scenes in different countries shown by the moving picture would help
enliven the otherwise dull pages of physical and political
geography. Famous historical events depicted on Ihe
screen would awaken the child's eager desire to learn
more from his school books.    In other subjects such as
natural  history,  botany, geology  anil different  phai
Science, the moving picture is very likely to prove a valuable aid to educational equipment.
It has been suggested by a South Vancouver man that
were   the   moving   picture  idea   adopted   in   schools   sonic
arrangement might be madie between the different schools
eef the Dominion by which films could be inter-cbangeil.
Thus pictures eif Uriiish Columbia could he changed for
liaise eif Manitoba e,r Ontario and vice versa. The suggestion appears lo us quite practicable; and in the meantime it weiuld be interesting 1 <��� know what school trustees and teachers think lib.mt the matter,

typical of Argentina, em whose mania; s ami customs are impressed the
individuality of the highly civiliz.-d

Argentina meere than 850,000 Italians,

French. The Irish also form a large
and prosperous colony, The most
remarkable   feature   of., the     change
wrought by immigration to Latin
America is lhe further infusion of
Latin blood. Brazil is experiencing
the same inflow of the Latin races
as her neighbor. The re-Latinizing
rn' Semth America is practically con-
lined io the eastern c.iast. In Chile
and Peru it is a negligible factor. In
Cuba, however, there has been a
strong accession of Spanish blood
since lhe em!1 of the war. Many
Spaniards are Hying from the old
Bag of the monarchy tei the Hag of
independent Cuba. Lasl year twenty
thousand Spaniards arrived in Cuba
seeking new homes. The- potentialities of this re-Latinizing of the Latin
republics in Soulh America are great,
and have scarcely received the attention   llle  subject  deserves.

China is now a republic, but Ihey
still ihe some things in the old way.
For example, an edict has been issued by the Cabinet of the republic]
that will change the style of dress
from Oriental to Occidental, Women
are to give up their trousers for a
loose-lilting garment on the lines of
a kimona for housewear, and shin-
waist and pleated skirl for street use.
Men are to wear thc business suit and
conventional evening clothes of the
Bast. Women will be permitted to
wear nothing but high shoes, while
men will be allowed to use high calfskin or low tan shoes. It may be
that the Government will find difficulty in enforcing an edict so revolutionary, especially when many Chinese women look upon their present
costume and not without Grounds,
too, as being more modest and convenient.

The Butterfly Queen
In a  little mountain-town in California there lives a young woman of
eighteen,   who   makes   a   fortune   out
nf moths and butterflies.
The young lady's name is Ximcna
McGlashan, and she has in her possession some of the most valuable
butterflies in the world, and almost
all the natural history museums have
dealings with hcr. The country where
Mi>s McGlashan's home is situated
iilieiuuils wiih wonderful ninths and
butterflies of every size and color,
and se, it is no wonder that she grew
up with a passion for this branch of
nature  study.
Her father, who is a lawyer, intended hcr in go in for school teaching,
but Xiincna���whose name, hy the
way, is Spanish for Queen���had made
up her mind lee devote her life to
entomology, and could nut be per-
Buaded to alter it.
Besides being an expert catcher of
mollis and butterflies. Miss Mc-Glas-
hiin breeds thein as well, and ber
home is a veritable butterfly museum.
Room after room is filled with
hundreds of dollars' worth of specimens, and in special compartments
arc cabinets containing breeding-
moths. Miss McGlashan has to make
careful preparations in order to catch
hcr  specimens  successfully.
She uses a mixture consisting of
stale beer, rum and br iwn sugar.
These ingredients make a thick mixture, and with ;i painl brush she deposits some of tbe stuff on the leaves
of the trees. The moths are able to
scent this, mixture from a distance
eef half a mile, and very shortly after
it bas been put on the trees dozens
nf the insects assemble around. The
effect of the mixture on thc creature's is lo make them insensible, and
they are then easily captured and

agreement with a well-known entomologist apiece for every specimen

thc soup remains unassailed, and, as
is usually found in such a case, with
good reason.
Nn matter how our food may be
pasteurized and sterilized it must
pn-- through the mouth, which is
said tn harbor more than forty different kinds of germs, and which it
is practically impossible to render
sterile. Should these bacteria pass
into the intestines and continue active decomposition and the formation of poisons would result. Such
poisons are the principal cause of the
death of babies in the summer; they
assist much in Ihe production of old
age, and the factors in all illness. Hut
if the gastric juice flows freely one
nf its ingredients, hydrochloric acid
will act as a germ destroyer and prevent such a condition. It will act as
ihe disinfectant nf the quarantine at
the pni't eef entry. Shock, grief, worry, anger, and the various small excitements of daily life can, lo a certain extent, slop thc How of gastric
juie'e, and allow typhoid and other
disease germs lo pass Ihe quarantine.

Early Vegetables
Among thc lirst spring vegetables
and green wc find onions, cress and
asparagus, each of which is rich in
medicinal properties necessary to
eine's system at the end of the winter
season. The onion, owing lo thc
large amount of sulphur it contains,
is an excellent complexion neauti-
ficr, It also soothes the nerves, gives
tone to the stomach, loosens a cold',
cures tut earache and stimulates the
kidneys to remove waste products.
As an appetizer, Spanish, Bermuda
or ynting home-grown onions sliced
very thin, slightly sailed and placed
between slices of fresh buttered
bread are unequalled. To prevent a
bturning sensation after eating onions
they should bc covered witli cold
waler for an hour before using, and
then have as much of the juice pressed  out.
Onion Salads���Slice young onions
and crisp cucumbers together on
lettuce leaves and cover with mayonnaise or vinegar dressing. Onions
and radishes may be served the same
way with the latter dressing. Southern Californians make a delicious

Always-ready Lemonade
There is nothing more refreshing
on a hot day than a long drink of
cool lemonade, but however anxious
the hostess may be to serve this beverage, it is sometimes impossible to
do so owing to the lack of necessary
ingredients. In fact, it is for just
this reason that the syrup that may
be prepared by thc following recipe
is one of the greatest of household
conveniences. It i.s delicious, but
what is still more important, it enables nne lo procure a supply of
lemonade literally at a moment's no-
lice. Extract the juice from a dozen
large lemons; grate the rind of -ix
of thc lemons, and add to lhe Juice.
Let the mixture stand for twelve
hours over night. In the morning
make a thick syrup of granulated
sugar, and just as little water as nos-
sible, as the syrup must be both
thick and smooth. When it has CO01-

Things are stirring in swimming
circles over the introduction of a new
water sport, water snecer, which
made its debut into local circles last
week, when the Olympic Club and
the Surf Beach teams lined up for
thc initial tryout of the new game
at Surf Beach  Park in  Alameda.
Eastern enthusiasts claim that
water soccer is a most interesting
game, completely eliminates the many
disagreeable features of water polo,
and makes a clean and exhilarating
pastime. There are seven men on
each side of the teams in the new
game���a centre forward, two side
centres and twu goalkeepers.
Instead oi the small ball used in
polo a regulation soccer leather-covered ball is used in the new game.
Thc goals arc not painted spaces on
the walls as in polo, but are composed of uprights ten feet apart, and a
crossbar four feet high. A score is
made by throwing the ball through
the   goal   instead   of    touching     the
