SOUTH VANCOUVER, B.C.. CANADA.   SATURDAY, JANUARY
Price 5 cents
Mr. Weart Expresses Annoyance That
Mr. Gold Should Use His Name
Denies That he ever Promised to Furnish any Old Man's Home
Offered by Mr. Gold at Patriotic Concert Last Summer
Mr. J. VV. \W-art. the Vancou-
ver barrister, former Reeve 'ef llurnaby, and well known public man. denies
point blank that he ever promised to
furnish the old man's home Mr. Gold
is supposed t" have e.ffcrcel te, Se mill
Vancouver.
Thc faun.11- Gold ��� >tTir .if two thirty-
three feint hits tn he used as sites f'ir
an old man's In nnc and children's refuge was made at a War Fund Con-
cert held in Snuth Vancuuver last summer under the auspices e.f the Liberal
Association.     Mr.   Weart   was  on   the
platform al tlie concert and during the
evening a slip 'ef paper was passed to
the chairman, Reeve Kerr, whee did not
know the contents thereof, anil was
surprised possibly when the document,
read aloud, proclaimed that Mr. Cold
was ce lining forward to the rescue, not
of the soldiers at the fn int. but of the
old men and parcntless children at
home.
"1 thought," said Mr. J. W. Weart, tei
a CHINOOK reporter, "that the eiffcr
was being made purely out of the good-
ness of heart of one of the citizens.
1 did not know Mr. Cold at that time
and I do not know him now save a-
an oldtimer in this city. 1 did nol |
promise to furnish any old man's home I
or children's refuge al that time, nor
do I offer now te, do so. What I said |
at that time was that I would he glad,
if the municipality accepted this offer
and proceeded with the plan eif open-,
ing a home eer hospital to undertake I'i
pay for the furnishing of one ward. I
weiuld assist any hospital or charitable
project to the utmost eif my ability.
"T feel deeply grieved." continued
Mr. Weart. "that my offer should be
dragged into a municipal campaign. 1 ���
did not think at that time that Mr.
Cold was making a grandstand plav in
offering the two lots. I would hate t'e
think that today he would make any
political capital out of what wc all
sheiuld consider a more or less sacred
matter���the assistance of the aged and
the homeless. In all my experience
1 have been unable to think that any
public man we,uld make advei tisinR
capital out of such a subject. I cannot
Ihink that  Mr. Gold has done so."
Mr. Eugene Cleveland could not
be reached before going to press but
many who attended the concert will
remember that Mr. Cleveland did not
eiflfer to furnish either the proposed
he.use eef refuge or children's hospital.
A great advertisement was circulated throughout South Vancouver Friday
ity Mr. Gold. It was headed, "Twelve
Reasons Why VTou She.ulil Vote for
Edward Gold as Reeve 'ef Seeuth Vancouver.'
The- poster Is most peculiarly worded
and Reas.,n Six attributes to Mr. Gold
.'.nil his worthy tne.ther the ability, if
y.m please, t" erect "an oh! man and
woman" for the people of the district.
Reasons Sevm and Eight "i the marvelous  document  are1  here-  given :
"Mr.   Gold  and   his  mother   have
generously grained two lots valued
at $.Vi*M) free of all encumbrances, t..
South Vancouver municipality,   for
the purpose of erecting an old man
and woman and children's llonte fori
the people of the district.
S.    lie and his goenl mother have
pledged themselves to endow these
homes for III year- annual grant, an.l
although Mr. Wearl and Mr. Cleveland eif Ward  1. "I  llurnaby. prom
ised to furnish these homes, WHAT
HAS YOUR COUNCIL AND
REEVE KKRR done with this magnificent gift? Yeui have not heard
a word about it. The residents 'ef
South Vancouver, the poor children
and women are to suffer for the
want of these homes, because your
reeve is too small a man to accept
a gift from a great and magnificent
opponent."
Of course the council refused to accept tbe two small blocks of land.
Thirty-three feet would offer but little
reiom for an "Id people'- home and
even if it were built on so small a
tract, the presence of a children's home
next door wemld scarcely add to the
comfort of the declining days of the
aged mendicants of the community.
Much amusement was caused wdien
the offer was lirst made, hut Mr. J. W.
Weart does not think it funny and declares that hc is very annoyed at being dragged in as a sponsor for the
candidate for the reeveship.
 ��-^	
MR. JAMES CAMPBELL
RUNS IN WARD FIVE
For Two Years a Successful Member
of the School Board and was Prominently Mentioned for the Reeveship.
Mr. James Campbell, member of the
Seeuth Vancouver Hoard of School
Trustees, has announced his candidature for Ward Five. Ilis withdrawal
fr.em the reeveship contest will rob
that particular section of the light from
much interest, as it was considered
that Mr. Campbell had better chances,
in the early stages of the game, than
any of the men who are endeavoring
to overthrow Mr. Kerr.
Mr. Campbell is a highly esteemed
citizen of South Vancouver, who in the
two years spent upon the School Hoard
has undoubtedly made his mark upon
South Vancouver. Hc has resided in
the South Hill district for six years
and lives today in the very house occupied by him upon reaching South
Vancouver from the Old Land.
In the Did Country Mr. Campbell
was associated with some of tlle largest concerns in the City of London
and has travelled extensively. Ile has
the reputation of an expert iu the furniture and decorative line and had the
honor of supervising the decorative
equipment of Windsor Castle and His
Majesty's yacht al the accession of the
late lainanted  King  Edward Seventh.
Though a hit of an agitator. Mr.
Campbell is a man eef integrity and
honesty "f purpose, lie is probably
the best campaign speaker in the district and when Mr. Campbell mounts
t.e the platform your typical Seeuth
Vancouver political audience quiets
down and gives him a most attentive
hearing. Ile is heart and soul for
Seeuth Vancouver ami is of a Celtic
strain which force- him to lie' a keen
imperialist.
Mr. Campbell is ably seconded by an
amiable wife win. takes no mean pan
in the social welfare ot South Vancouver. She comes of a good line of legal
stock from the South of Ireland, being
a daughter of that famous Barrister
Gardiner, who was the advisor of the
renowned Daniel O'Connel.
Mr. Campbell is of that democratic
stamp which should endear him to tlle
people '���! Wanl Five,
FACTS AND FANCIES
lly "Observer"
It had neit been my intention tei
mention Mr. Edward Cold again .hiring tiie present municipal election
campaign; but as Mr A H. Seymour
has taken up the cudgels em his behalf, and has offered one or two lug
gesli.eti- tei myself. I am ciuipelled
��� mt eif courtesy to reply.
* e��      ,
Mr. Seymour suggests that I should
sign my name to the "fact- ami
fancies" printed in the "Chinook" : Se,
that we may all know win, he. is
what are his true motives, and profit
hy his advice." I know 'if no good
reason why I should satisfy Mr. Scy-
meiur's curiosity. If my advice is
sound and my logic als... it matter-
mit what my name may be. Mr. Seymour says I have attacked Mr. Gold
rather than the policy Mr. Gold ad-
vocatei, 1 have attacked Mr. Gold's
methods, not his policy. Edward
Ceehl i- Mr, Cold's one and only policy,
as he has on more than one occasion
publicly stated. "If I were not personally interested in South Vancouver 1
.ould not accept $10.(100 t., be the reeve
..f such a defunct municipality" was
Mr. Cold's own statement at Marfew
Hall a few days ago,
ef       *       *
'Tis true Mr. Gold has an elaborate
platform, drawn up feer the purposes
"I thi.- election; se, has every other
candidate and by placing them side by
side it will be seen that, so far as platforms are concerned, there is not much
to choose between them, But there is
a great deal of difference in the men;
and ratepayers who desire a reputation
of the unseemly scenes witnessed iu
the council chamber and the Committee rooms during Mr. Cold's tenure of
office last year will doubtless vote for
Mr. Gobi ou Saturday. Because Mr.
Gold has shown time and time again
that "like boy, like man," and so far
as controlling his temper is concerned Mr. Cold is no mon able to control himself now than he was as a boy.
He must have his own way. Consequently Mr. Cold cannot wnrk harmoniously with any councillor who has
any respect for bis own opinions, if he'
happens to disagree with Mr. Cold's
views.
* *   n
Mr. Seymour asks why T say South
Vancouver needs a business man. who
will run the municipality as he would
his own business. Because the reeve
and the council in the pasl have paid
too much attention to the ..pinions of
ratepayers, instead of running the business, of the municipality according to
their judgment, as they would their
eewn business.
+    +    *
Mr. Gold prides himself on lieing a
strong man; yet he weakly yielded to
the clamour .if a noisy bunch e.f men at
Kalenberg Hall, who demanded that
Iii- opposition tee the Main Streel pa*i -
ing contract should cease. Whal tl'.e's
Iiis old friend and supporter, A II.
Lewis sav in regard to that matter.
Listen. Mr. Seymour ;
"I don't hide my disappointment
al l'M4's council, i don t blame any
..ne in particular, bill I blame the'
entire body. The whole council fell
from grace. Even Mr Gold, our
chief champion, fell miserably from
his January's stand. 'I'he beginning
of his downfall in mv estimation was
when  he  resigned  his     pe>-iti,.ll    as
chairman of finance t" run for recveship, Hi- -' cond drop, and ihis
time a big drop, was when he yielded t.e llu paving '.n Main Street, I
h.1,1 him after the Kalenberg meeting, where he yielded this principle'
and   -aid   that   he   would,  if  elected
Electors Must Support Mrs. McPhie
Candidate for the School Board
re-eve. favor going on with the contract, I te.ld him that he hail made
a mistake."
* *    +
That Mr. Ceehl is a weak man and i
does not kne.w his e.wn mind two elays!
teegether, or else -ay- what In- does ina j
mean, was proved on the night of bis |
defeat in May last. "To the vict.er the
spoils; I bow to the will of tlle people"
Mr. Gold; and he immediately set tee
we,rk tei upset the decision of the people. Who can place any faith in his
word after that? And what has been
the result of his attempt to upset tlle
decision of tlle people? Hundreds eef
names that had previously been on the
voters' list are this year left off. on
the advice of the municipal solicitor, in
consequence of Mr. Cold's objections
to Reeve Kerr's election. "Many hundreds of names were added to the said
voters' list without any proper declaration being made." urged Mr. Cold as
one reason for disqualifying Mr. Kerr,
��� *   *
It was true tbat no declaration bad
been made; but the men were ratepayers and had been em the assessment roll for years and, on account of
an agitation following a previous decision of the council to [nit only deed
holders on the voters' list, they were
given the oenelit of the doubt and placed e.n the list. Mr. Colt] objected and
asked the courts to disqualify Mr. Kerr,
because they were on tlle list without
having made the proper declaration;
now I suppose be will criticise the
municipal officials for protecting tlle

This Lady   hat  Many   Time* Proven  Her  Worth  and South
Vancouver Needs Her Service*
Se.uth Vancouver is very fortunate
in having among her candidate- for
School Trustee, a woman e,f such experience as Mrs. Annie McPhie, of
Cedar Cottage. Mrs. McPhie has
been a resident of Semth Vanceeiiver
for the pa-t fourteen years and has
always taken a keen interest in the
affairs of the community. At present
-he is devoting her time each school
day to the interest of the school children in connection with the lunches
that arc being given throughout the
municipality.     After   being   requested
by many friends and being nominateel
by the Women's Institute e,f South
Vancouver she decided to offer her
service- te, the- Municipality, believing that a mother on the sche,ol l>e,anl
would be appreciated as most of our
teachers in South Vancouver are women Mrs. McPhie has the time to
devote tee School Beeard we,rk and the
untiring interest she has taken in the
different organizations in South Vancouver shows thai, no time will be
spared to the best interest of education and tbe ratepayers.

the "proper declaration."
Mr. Seymour accused me of having
stated that "thc municipal borrowing
power has been exhausted." 1 never
made any such statement. 1 said it
would be extremely difficult to raise
money this year and that, therefore it
might be a good thing to let some of
the chronic kickers try their hand at
municipal administration tin- year. Mr.
Seymour says : "Observer" very nastily insinuates that those who dare
criticise the past or present administrations of South Vancouver are themselves not honest nor sincere." What
i I did say was "Crapes do not grow
'���in thorns nor ligs on thistles; neither
do charges of graft and corruption
come from the mouths of honest men."
Whal I. perhaps, ought to have said
wa.-: "unfounded charges ,,f graft and
corruption; such as have been made s..
frequently on the public platforms of
South Vancouver during thc past eighteen months." Because it must bc remembered that not one "f the charges
made have been proved.
*    *    +
I maintain that tie. man has any right
t.e make public statements which cast
reflections on public men or public officials unless he has pre,.if which he can
take inte. the law courts. Any person
can throw mud ai perfectly honest ami

In Ward Six the man who appears

This is the council which was heralded in as the "reform" council which we were told last year, would cure
all the ills South Vancouver suffers as a municipality. Reeve Kerr was elected at a by-electiem in May which followed the resignation of Reeve Dickie. Councillor Millar was also elected in May in the By-election in Ward Five
which followed the resignation of Councillor Gold. From left to right, standing : Councillors Tweedie, Stevens,
Rowlings, Winram, and J. B. Springford. C.M.C; sitting Councillor Rutledge, Reeve Kerr and Councillor Millar.
Councillors Winram, Twiddy and Millar are withdrawing this year. This council may be given the credit for having brought order out of chaos which followed the abdication of Mr. Gold.

"OH, HE'S A UFA'I I.I"
BRITISH COLUMBIANS surely dei not feel
flattered at the tune of the controversy which
the Iloti. Mr. llowser has opened with the Bench of
tiie Province,
It developed in Chief Justice Hunter's court that
the lion. Mr. llowser. as head of a law firm, was defending a certain man accused of crime, while the
lion. Mr. Bowser, as head of the Attorney General's
department, was prosecuting the alleged evil doer.
"Let not thy right hand know what thy left hand
doeth," is a principle whieh works out all right in |
giving to the poor. That he should apply this system
to heaping tip takings from the law business, proves
that the lion. Mr. llowser has in his system a grim
streak of humor as well as a mania to add to the
family  fortunes.
The "MAN" for South Vancouvei
For REEVE
Courage
IS TIIE REEVE ALL POWERFUL?
Os'E of the candidates for the reeveship has been
very free on the public platform in expressing
to the people his plans for running South Vancouver
if elected. "I will do this. I will do that. I will do
so forth and so on," says this candidate.
Xow the reeve can do certain things as head of the
Snuth Vancouver Council, hut the power of the
reeve is no greater than that of one of the councillors,
True, the reeve can veto certain resolutions which
ye- thropgh, but the Council can pass these vetoed
li'i'snl. lisflg over lbs hSftd of the reeve if the council
��?es fit to do sti.
The reeve is merely the diainnan of the Council.
His business is to put the question, U^ keep order and
to exercise a fatherly hand over affairs in' general.
He cannot railroad anything through on his owil 1']"
itialive. He has not a vote, as far as that goes, save
when there is a deadlock in the Council. The reeve
is, for all intents and purposes, a figure-head, s/,ive
when the Council wish him to bc otherwise.
' Truly the reeve signs cheques m(] m)m for t\K
municipality. He does i;wt ,j0 m mt^ {<c Council
advises him to do So, 'file reeve, while nominally,
head of tllO Council, is the humble servant of tlie
Cmilicil. Of course, outside of the council chamber
he can show as much dignity and prestige as possible
and can wear his insignia of office, attend all garden
parties, anil if the Duke conies through he is the first
man of the municipality to be presented to the Duke.
We would direct the attention of the people who
have been swallowing this guff as to the power of
the reeve and the imperial sway which he may hold
over the municipality to the fact that one hundred
years ago a decided kink was put in a certain man
named Napoleon, who thought he was the anointe I
of heaven and had absolute power to he used as lie
saw fit and when be saw lit. Some vears previous to
that time the King of England had to he walloped
across the jaw that he might understand that the
people shared with him a few of the responsibilities
of ruling tbe people. To-day a million men under
Lord   Kitchener  are  endeavoring���and   succeeding���

Washington coal is Lignite which contains up to 25 per cent, water.
When you buy coal in sacks be sure of
the full weight without the sacks. A
���sack weighs from 15 to 20 lbs. You pay
for these in nine cases out of ten.
Water and sacks will give you no heat.
DIETHER COAL
is sold with a city weigh ticket
guaranteeing net weight in l<*ads
of two tons and up.
The by-U\V calls for the raising of $1700 to pay
off a mortgage upon the Bursill Library property.
If iho citizens of South Vancouver do nol pass the
by-law. the Bursill library property will go under
the sheriff's hammer, ami South Vancouver will lose
e��nc of its choicest assets.
Between $1500 and $2000 was raised by popular
subscription from ratepayers throughout the .Mimi-
cipality and the sum was paid over to the library
some years ago. Later the Council made two appropriations of $500 each to the Bursill Library.
Altogether, therefore, the citizens of South Vancouver have an equity of approximately $3000 In the
Bursill Library property,
The title of the property and lhe contents of the
library, in themselves a priceless collection, are today vested in the citizens of South Vancouver, The
value of lhe property  is rated at  $8000.
Againsl ihe properly is a mortgage of $150(1.
which is now overdue and which cannot he renewed.
The only chance of saving this splendid institution
for tlie people of South Vancouver rests in the parsing of the by-law now before the people. If this
by-law is passed, all the debts of the Bursill Public
Library may be met and the institution may be savc%tl
for us, the citizens of South Vancouver whose duty
il i.s, if from none other than a purely business
motive, io protect our own property.
There are few citizens in South Vancouver who
arc not familiar wilh the library, the librarian, Mr.
Ijtirsill, and the contents of the building. W'e are all
familiar with the great work which has already been
accomplished through ihi- institution. It is our
responsibilit) as citizens to .support llie library bylaw.

The Important Matter of Choosing Your Dentist
"The Last Word
in Dentistry."

What are
"Nature
teeth"?
Advice
free
��HERE is nothing so important to your health and efficiency as the matter with
your teeth. Sound, useful, beautiful teeth should bc yours���teeth that enable
you to bite, chew and smile in comfort. Decayed teeth cause, not only continual
inconvenience, but permanent ill-health. It is your duty to yourself to economize
in other ways so that you may secure teeth tbat look natural, feel natural and perform the functions which Nature allotted to those important members.
i^dlEREFORE 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 tbe 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
,J-^ 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.

mm South   Vancouver   Reeveship.
Tn ihe Editor e.i The Chinook:
Sir;  May  I  supplement  Rev, I'��i n
Bulkley'i letter and reference to "Mr.
Gold, who during  the  brief  term  he j
wai   councillor,   caused   South    Vancouver  In bc  the  laughing  stock   ol ,
the province."    1 regret  the entrance
,,i  Councillor  Stevens  and  ex-Councillor   Burgess   into   the   contest,  because   ihe  real   light   for  the   reeveship  is  between   Reeve   Kerr  ami   Mr.
i;,,!,!, ,,,���!  Cvery  cote  for  thc   other|
candidates will assist   Mr. Gold, who
will almost  surely be elected.
Mr. Gold, ai Cedar Cottage, announced thai ii elected he intends to

couver, as thc result of Mr. Golds
policy, is now known in the municipal world and tlie law courts nf
It. C. as "a municipality without a
conscience." And Mr. Gold's use of
his famous "two-edgtd sword has
made it extremely difficult to persuade experienced municipal officials I" even consider taking a position in Seeuth Vancouver, except
umler a heng term guarantee. Ihat
is not a desirable State e.i things, nor
does it make for efficiency; but it
would be emphasized by the election
of Mr. Gold as reeve.
With the exception of Reeve Kerr
only two councillors are seeking reelection. Councillors Rutledge and
Rowlings. Last year the council
was handicapped by ignorance nt
what had been done by previous
councils. Mistakes -,vere made anel
resolutions passed which had to be
rescinded. That is one reason why
the return of Reeve Kerr is desirable. . . ....
Another reason is the impossibility of councillors, with any respect
for their opinions. wntVing amicably
with Mr. Gold. That was the cause
of the rumpus last year, which made
South Vancouver the laughing steick
of the province. Mr. Gold, speaking
at Fraser Hall, said: "I helped to
elect Reeve Dickie: but be had not
been in office a wook before he began
1" fight me." We know ilu result.
Reeve Dickie, a gentleman in .very
sense,  was driven  from  the  council
South Vancouver ratepayers, i- it
desirable to again hav,- the couni il
maele a "bear garden" for the- ani-
usement e.i the province? The only
lure way to prevent il is to vote

was the same Dr. Hunter 'ilu. was
mixed up in the notorious sale of tin-

very handsome profit was made (not
necessarily by Dr. Hunter), and was
answered in ihe affirmative. Now,
the doctor writes s.elcly. In -ay-, f'er

If ihe doctor agreed tn purchase

and, as he savs be agreed tn purchase
e.n March 25th. 1912. which is only
17 days before he nave tiie option t'e

well,   and   making     good     anil   easy

"OH, HE'S A DEVILl"
BRITISH COLUMBIANS surely do not feel
flattered at the tone of the controversy which
the Hon, -Mr. Bowser lias opened with the Bench of
the Province.
It developed in Chief Justice Hunter's court that
the Hon. Mr. llowser. as head of a law firm, was defending a certain man accused of crime, while the
Hon. Mr. llowser, as head of the Attorney General's
department, was prosecuting the allegi     'vil doer.
"Let not thy ri^iit hand know what thy left hand
doeth," is a principle which works out all right in
giving to the poor. That he should apply this system
to heaping up takings from the law business, proves
that the lion. Mr. llowser lias in his system .a grim
streak of humor as well as a mania to add to the
family  fortunes.

1
IS THE REEVE ALL POWERFUL?
Os'E of the candidates for the reeveship has been
very free on the public platform in expressing
to the people iiis plans for running South Vancouver
if elected. "I will do this. I will do that. 1 will do
so forth and so on," says this candidate.
Xow the reeve can do certain things .as head of the
South Vancouver Council, hut the power of the
reeve is no greater than that of one of the councillors.
True, the reeve can veto certain resolutions which
pass throiigh, hut tlie Council can pass these vetoed
M$66tUti0BS evil1 the head, of the reeve if the council
tsees fit (o do so.
'   Tlie reeve is merely the chairman of the Council.
His business is to put thc question, t.'' keeP or(ler ancl
to exercise a fatherly hand over  affairs in' general.
He cannot railroad anything through on his owii I']"
itiative.   He has not a vote, as far as that goes, save
when there is a deadlock in tlie Council.    The reeve
is, for all  intents and purposes, a figure-head,   ^yt,
when the Council wish him to be otherwise.
"   Truly the reeve signs cheques fl���tl ]ul])c,rs for th(,
municipality.    He does rg{ t|Q so Untjj t],e Council
advises him t�� ('Q so.    The reeve, while nominally
; head af the Council, is the humble servant   of   the
Council.    Of course, outside of the council chamber
he can show .as much dignity and prestige as possible
and can wear his insignia of office, attend all garden
parties, and if the Duke comes through he is tlie first
man of the municipality to be presented to the Duke.
W'e would direct the attention of tlie people who
have been swallowing this guff as   to tbe   power of
the reeve and the imperial sway which he may hold
over  the municipality  to the  fact  that one hundred
years ago a decided kink was put in a certain man
named  Xapoleon, who thought he vvas the anointed
of heaven and had absolute power to be used as he
j saw fit and when he saw fit.   Some years previous to
that time the King of England had to be walloped
j across  tlie  jaw  that  he  might  understand  that   the
; people shared with him a  few of the responsibilities
I of rilling the people.    To-day a million  men under

Nut, $5.00    Lump, $6.50
(Full weight without sacks)
Is Bituminous coal, mined on Vancouver
Island, British Columbia, and the most
economical coal on the market. It is
all heat and no waste.
Washington coal is Lignite which contains up to 25 per cent, water.
When you buy coal in sacks be sure of
the full weight without the sacks. A
���sack weighs from 15 to 20 lbs. You pay
for these in nine cases out of ten.
Water and sacks will give you no heat.
DIETHER COAL
is sold with a city weigh ticket
guaranteeing net weight in leads
of two tons and up.
The by-la\V calls for thc raising of $1700 to pay
off a mortgage upon the Bursill  Library property.
If ilio citizens of South Vancouver do not pass the
by-laW, the liursill library property will go under
the sheriff's hammer, and South Vancouver will lose
eine of its choicest assets.
Between $1500 and $2000 was raised by popular
subscription from ratepayers throughout lhe Municipality and the sum was paid over to the library
some years ago. Later the Council made two appropriations of $500 each to the liursill Library.
Altogether, therefore, the citizens of South Vancouver have an equity of approximately $3000 in the
Bursill Library property.
The title of the property and the contents nf the
library, in themselves a priceless collection, are today vested in the citizens of South Vancouver, The
value of ilie property is rated at $8000.
Against the property is a mortgage eif $1500,
which is now overdue and which cannot be renewed.
The only chance of saving this splendid institution
for the people of South Vancouver re^ts in the losing of the by-law now before the people. If this
by-law is passed, all tbe debts of the Bursill Public
Library may be met and the institution may bc saved
for ns, the citizens of Smith Vancouver whose dirt)
it is, if from none other than a purely business
motive, tt) protect our own property,
There are few citizens in Smith Vancouver who
are not familiar with tlle library, the librarian, Mr.
Bursill, and the contents of the building. Wc are all
familiar with the great work which has already been
accomplished througii this institution. It is our
responsibility as citizens to support the library bvlaw.

"The Last Word
in Dentistry."

What are
"Nature
teeth"?
Advice
free
��HERE is nothing so important to your health anil efficiency as thc matter with
your teeth. Sound, useful, beautiful teeth should hc yours���teeth that enable
you to bite, chew and smile in comfort. Decayed teeth cause, not only continual
inconvenience, but permanent ill-health. It is your duty to yourself to economize
in other ways so that you may secure teeth that look natural, feel natural and perform the functions which Nature allotted to those important members.
i^\HEREFORE 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.
~~"|"' EMPLOY only the most modern methods, the greatest care and skill and the
,JL^ best materials. Each individual case is carefully studied. When I1 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.

will  almost   siiniv   lie   elected.
Mr. Gold, at Ceelar Cottage, announced that ii elected he intends t.i

policy, is now known in ihe municipal world ami ihe law courts "i

does it make feir efficiency; but it
would be emphasized by the elect mil
of Mr. Gnld as reeve.
With the exception of Reeve Kerr
only two councillors are seeking reelection. Councillors Rutledge and
Rowlings. Last year the council
was handicapped by ignorance of
what had been done by previous
councils. Mistakes were made and
reseilutions passed which had to be
rescinded. That is one reason why
the return of Reeve Kerr is desirable.
Another reason is the impossibility of councillors, with any respect
for their opinions. Wotktng amicably
with Mr. Gold. That was the cause
of the rumpus last year, which made
South Vancouver the laughing stock
of the province. Mr. Gold, speaking
at Fraser Hall, said: "I helped to
elect Reeve Dickie: but lie had not
been in office a wook before he began
to light nn " We know the result.
Reeve Dickie, a gentleman in ever)

Re   Dr.   Hunter's   Repudiation.
To ihe  Editor  Chinook:
Sir: l)r T. V. Hunter has thought
' ' to repudiate certain statements'
that he aver- were made by Mr. Ed-|
warel Gold re the telling by him (the
Doctor) "f a lot e.n victoria Drive
tn the Municipality e.f South Vancouver.
As   the   writer   was   the   chairman

In lhe lir-i place I would like t..

was mentioned at the meeting, arose

property, bin in answer t.. a question by a ratepayer addressed t.. "in-

very handsome pmiit was made (not
necessarily by Dr. Hunter), ami was
answered in the affirmative. Now,

siders it undignified for him i.e dis-
cuss matters with Mr. Gold), is prepared tn produce agreement nf sale,

Heath, then even' he was doing very
well, and making good and easy

extract from the minutes nf a
special meeting oi the council held
the day after Dr. Hunter gave the
option tn Heath, viz., on April 12th,
1912: "Moved by Councillor Elliott,
seconded by Councillor Third, that
Int 7 in centre pnrtinn of D. [.. 719

Woods, wlm possesses the happy faculty of inspiring confidence and admiration in all with whom she comes
in contact. Mrs. Wen ids has no axe
to grind for herself and consents to
run for office solely because of a conviction that, ii successful, she may in
sume measure be able to serve the
cause of the people. Tin- ladies also
discussed ihe matter of holding a public meeting, such as was held by them
last year, to which the different candidates for election were invited tn
come anil stale Iheir platforms anil
outline their policies, and ii was unanimously veiled thai a similar opportunity  be  given   this  year.

SIX   REASONS
WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF
CREOSOTED WOOD
BLOCK PAVEMENTS
ITS DURABILITY���Does not crumble or pulverize under the densest traffic; second only to granite
blocks
ITS EASE OF REPAIR���No difficulty being experienced in removing and replacing the blocks; no
expensive plant or skilled workmen required.
ITS SANITARY QUALITIES���Creosote being a
highly antiseptic and Waterproofing material instantly destroys all germs, prevents the absorption of
street filth and consequent decay.
ITS NOISELESSNESS���The rattle and bang of
vehicles passing over its smooth surface absorbed
and muffled till the quiet of the din load is obtained.
ITS DUSTLESSNESS���Does not pulverize; the
heaviest traffic only pounding down the wood fibres
to offer the greater resistance.
TTS CLEANLINESS���Having a smooth surface and
being waterprooi it does not differ in this respect
from asphalt.
We manufacture blocks of the highest possible
standard, the verv best materials only being used and
in the DOMINION WOOD BLOCKS we believe
we produce an article that has no equal.

Consider some oi the things her
type ejf dirigiule can do���lias done.
Fhe modern Zeppelin is able to
cruise for twenty hours ;it an altitude
ot from 6,500 to 9,000 feet. This is
hcr "safety zone"; bul still not the
limit of her ascent : For four hentrs
she can stay at a height of 9.S00 feet.
Thii is the reason for Germany's faith
that her inferior naval debt, directed
by lu-r dirigibles, could misli any
superior   Heel   on   the   water.
Recent over-sea maneuvers bIiow
how this might weirk.
A marine Zeppelin, acting as the
flagship tti ii German naval squadron,
took the sea-admiral up into the air,
where it hovered in the safety zone
while the admiral counted and classified the sea Heel of the distant "enemy," and located submarines in the
I ocean which lay, transii.iri.-iit. below
: him,
By wireless, he ordered every movement fi his own ships, which lay below the horizon, where they escaped
the eye en the enemy. He directed
them where to attack the enemy sn
that ship after ship of the foe mighl
be annihilated before others could
| come i" its aid.
At night he cinilel turn em a powerful searchlight, of 40,000 candle-power,
and from a height of 5000 feet " spot"
anything em the surface.
And he was perfectly safe, nol only
because nothing could hit him���as
we shall se.- presently���bul because
he was invisible, at 9000 feet, even in
broad daylight, The -hips are covered with alumininum paint���a very
recent device for protection againsl
sun-expansion and rain, whose dazzling brightness makes them difficult
to see in clear sunshin and quite invisible against a gray sky. And
noiseless motors now add another element  fi protection.
Such -hips neiw fly -ixty miles an
hqur. Recently, one e.i them flew all
the ��av across Germany at sixty-five
miles an hour. And in sight ol an
enemy, when a Zeppelin flies before
the wind, its speed is seventy t.e
eighty miles. .
ll.. yem see what tins means? What
are the chances of a dreadnought,
making less than half thai time, with
a Zeppelin in pursuit? What eei its
chances at night���with the terrible
searchlight flashing its beam for an
instanl tee pick out the target, and
the attacking airship vanishing al
sixty  miles  an   hour  into darkness,
Weather make- little difference to
a Zeppelin. It 'ears neither strong
nor gusty winds if they blow horizontally; it is affected only by vertical drafts, against which ii now protects itself by its speed and its powerful rudders. Late in 1912. a marine

seen from the ground till shortly before her arrival. Nor could the ship's
commands* see the ground; but he
steadily maintained by scientific reckoning a course due northeast tei the
sea. and never failed to know his position   exactly,      By   wireless   he   ceeni-
municated with all the military and
weather stations through eastern Germany during the entire cruise.

Nor does such a performance as

second shell was flung skyward far to
the right, anel for an uour as I watched shell- roie continually around that
airship, trying to tear it down from
its high elevation, but never striking
it.
One liemr of immunity for a stationary nalloon! Under The fire of the
remarkably      effective       Frcnch-niaelc
Creusot guns!
But,   even   though   llie   airship   may
be secure from land or sea attack, how
about the aeroplane, een whose "superior speed" other nations have relied tee offset  the Zeppelin's guns?
Germany, herself holding all the
aeroplane records for really practical
performances, has proved that her
dirigibles have little to fear frum the
"hornet" of the air een which  Prance
has been depending. lis sling has
been drawn by the necessity of being
armed. For the heavier the aeroplane,
the li-ss its speed ami the shorter its
stay in the air. And aeroplanes able
to cany guns firing shells thai explode mi contact���the emly missile
dangerous to a Zeppelin���are im faster
than the dirigible.
Take England's big sea-planes, built
for attacking the Zeppelins. U'hcn
war-loaded, these sea-planes are at a
grave disadvantage because they require half an hour te, climb half a
mile, while a Zeppelin ean vise tei fiSlX)
feet in eight minutes. It was this tremendous ascensional power that enabled Count -.eppelin. in command of
the Z. 1., to run away frum a swift
nursuing aeroplane during the last
Kaiser manettvres. when he flew over
an invading Ued army and "destroyed" its aeroplane baggage train by
dropping a big bomb.
Yes, but a sea-plane or a small destroyer, some one objects, might easily get above the Zeppelin by starting
nn its long climb in advance of tbe
airship. Once above, it could fly
about as long as its fuel lasted, and
drop destructive bombs on the dirigible.
Germany's actual tests, however,
clearly show that Ihis plausible idea
���i dropping bombs on moving air-
hips is a fallacy. For even if a
bomb could be dropped straigh, it
takes too long to fall, lit Tripoli the
Arabs discovered that in a clear sky
they could see the bomb hanging bc-
low the plane and thc movements of
ils operator in releasing il. as well as
the falling bomb itself. Invariably,
therefore, they simply got out of its
way.
Now, an aeroplane has to fly at
least 2000 to 2500 feet above a rigd
airship to bc safe from the two guns
mounted on top of its hull. And at
that distance, the gunner on top of
the dirigible would see the bomb long
enough before it began ils fall, so that
the airship wouldn't be there when
the bomb arrived. It would have
traveled 1100 to 1200 feet forward
and a number of degrees to one side.
Methods of dropping bombs on
moving airships have proved no more
reliable than "systems" feer playing
roulette.
So tbe fast destroyer and its bombs
are a delusion. Light machine-guns
of short range have been invented for
service against the airship. Hut these
guns can nol reach over much distance, while tbe Zeppelin's point-
blank fire will alwavs outreach their.
Moreover, a shell palling clear
througii one of a Zeppelin's twenty
gas-cells will not sink tlie ship. It is
still able tee retain its shape, hold its
remaining gas. and continue its jeitir-
ney. This is mil theory, bul lhe showing of repeated practise. Several
earlier Zeppelins have burled their
own propeller through a e.e'11 ami emptied it of gas. without Interfering ser-
iouslv with its journey, If tbe gas
supply is already low when a cell is
damaged, ihe loss can be compensated by driving thc hull forward at a
slight inclination, which gives thc engines ami planes great extra lift anel
makes up for the hiss of a whole cell.
Resides, ruptures are now readily repaired on board.
Xo,  an  aeroplane  bas  little  chance
to barm an airship. Its bomb-throwing is useless, its guns can not reach.
Abe >ut the only effective attack fnr an
aeroplane is the eene reported in the
paper- as I write���the story of an
aviatnr who hurled his aeroplane al
a dirigible and sacrificed himself to
elestreey thf enemy. Hut this can neet
be a frequent resource. How othen,
at  sea, dues a  destroyer  succeed  in
wrecking a battleship by hurling it-
eleaelly teerpeele, at dole range? The
air incident is a parallel. It is a desperate resort, antl likely In be vain.
The dirigible sheents too well.
Realization eef Germany's true- vis-
ieen of air-empire came Pe the nations
nf Europe with the Turko-ltalian war.
It wa- appallingly clear from the
damage done by small Italian airihipi
what havoc the big Zeppelin- mighl
wnrk.    There could be no clinging  t"
faith in the dreadnought it the aeroplane as a match fnr the dirigible.
Europe   began    tee   ge-t    tlle   ielea    nil
which Germany bail beea working fnr
ten years. The eether nations bail been
regarding BVition as a sort of auxiliary tn armies anil navies. Germany
hail been putting her army inte) lhe
peesitinn eef auxiliary tei air-fleets, Her
theory has been tbat the first great
work shall be done by the air cruisers,
which, in sufficient numbers, can destroy bridges, railways, food supplies,
and ammunition trains���can disrupt
mobilization, Then, when ihe enemy
becomei limply an army of occupa-l
linn, reaely tn move when the air;
fleet's  wireless  gives  notice.
Millions are needed, nf course, feer;
the army���te, speeel up her great hosts!
���to form motor machine-gun companies   In  attack   the'   crippled   enemy.
Hut   the'   airfleet   is   first.     Anil   that
ia why when military Germany want-:
ed   $1)00,000,000   for   increased     armament,   she   wanted���and   got   $.17,00(1,- |
I'M) nf it   feer her air navy.
The either nations see now, and
mit incompetency.    The  French General Staff confesses that it made a big
error   in   regarding   airships   i,   useful
only in scouting, and French opinion
neiw proclaims that eenly lhe molt
powerful airships can accomplish tiie
real work of war. England's I'irst
Lord of the Admiralty recently said:
"The time has come when we must
develop long-range airships of the
largest type. W'e propose tn ei
the service of some great English
manufacturer in the construction of
rigid  airships."
Both nations have begun recently
to built big units���perhaps too late.
Germany, meantime, dues neet intend
to leese ber enormous lead. Tbe Zeppelin works now possess two great
factories, one at F'ricdrichshafeii, the
other at Berlin, employing two thousand trained workmen. Together they
can turn out fifty to sixty Zeppelins
a year, which is beyond the power of
any other nation. There is a German
air fund of $12,500,000 for ten marine
airships of the largest type���that is.
seven times larger than the original
Zeppelin���separate from the estimate
of $25,000,000 for army airships. The
Zeppelin works are now building six
ships at a time, two for the navy and
four  for  thc  army.
Besides Germany has developed the
practical possibilities imt only of the
dirigible, but of all Other types of airships and aeroplanes as well, assigning each to its proper role in her great
air-service. ' She has been working
steadily on the air problem for ten
years, taking forward steps till the
time.
One of the most dramatic steps was
making the airship alio a cruiser.
Armies had found the Zeppelins too
big to haul. Smaller airships were
needed, which could be folded and
carried. But such craft could never
be anything but auxiliaries to creeping forces. Von Tirpitz���a lailor���
saw the solution: made the airship a
sea-cruiser. It grew larger tn accommodate itself to the immensity of
ocean distances.    It became    a  real
lighting ship, able to carry armor-
piercing guns, tind tei reach directly
vital points impossible to attain in war
time except througii the air.
Germany is not giving away such
secrets as these. Visitors may go all
over a Zeppelin for a few cents; other
nations may learn enough from lb'
study nf Zeppelins to imitate them:
but the real secrets may be obtained
only rfom drawings and formulas or
by taking a ship and her motors
apart, So far French and British engineers have failed In imitate the German  airships   successfully.
Matched againsl the powerful German air-fleet, the very much smaller
and slower dirigibles of Prance, Kus-
sia and England may be considered
unimportant. Only six nf the French
fleet tire armed even with light weapons, and these can only bc fired from
cars under the overhang of iheir gasbag. They are powerless to protest
themselves against an attack from
overhead by German aeroplanes; 10
that it is extremely doubtful if they
ever get very far on their sole mission of attempting to drop bombs on

German  soil,    'lhe  remaining  sixteen
oi  the   French  licet are insignificant.
France would have been better prepared if hcr factories had neit been
largely engaged in turning out the
same type of inadequate airships for
her allies,  Russia and  England.
Of these Russia musters ten and
Great   Britain   four.
Today Germany has eighteen Zeppelins���fifteen in lhe army anil three |
iu the navy���equipped with formidable fighting power; six of the number ceiuld, if required, reach Paris iu
four hours or London in eight. Cruising at great altitudes, or flying by
night, they call pass invulnerable
above all dangers, and fly for thirty-
six hours above French or English
territory. And the wind from Fug-
land to Germany almost always favors a swift return.
Aside from the Zeppelin fleet, there
arc the two powerful Schuettc-Lanz
rigid airships, the larger one mounting guns on lo]) and in sponsors on
tbe sides of its hull, callable of firing
in all directions. Nor are tbe latest
Parsevals���nine of them, each with a
machine-gun in the bow and a bomb
projector in the floor of its car���at all
negligible.
Well disposed ill thirty great revolving sheds, which these airships now
enter or leave without risk of being
damaged by a sudden wind blowing
! athwart the entrance; scattered all
along the Russian and French frontiers and up on the North Sea and
e.ul   'in   the   island   of   Heligoland,   the
German air-fleet is ready.
Al Konilberg and Breslau. near the
Russian side, are stationed fmir Zeppelin-. The '/.. 5 ���with lhe great
she ee iling rcceird���belongs at Posen,
right een the border, Two are stat-
ioned at Cologne, twei at Me-tz, two
tit Strasburg, and two at Friedrichs-
hafcii, wailing to swoop over F'rance.
Al Berlin i- another, There arc three
at Cuxhaven mi the N'nrtli Sea and
thiii al Ihe island of Heligoland,
munitioned tn operate with the German   naval   Heel.
The chief rivals for air supremacy
arc eight Zeppelins and a swarm of
French aeroplanes���possibly a thousand, of which only about fifty are
armored with real offensive power.
Must of I hem, however, carry light
arms for defense against hostile aeroplanes.
Five  great   French    dying    camps
dominate tlle German frontier���at
Tnul. Verdun, Chalons-stir-Marne,
Bar-le-DuC, and Epinal, where at
least forty of the largest aeroplanes
are ready to cross into Germany, to
begin dropping bombs on great railway junctions antl bridges, and to
strike a blow at the hated Zeppelins.
But Germany, loo. bas her aeroplanes
���alinut eight hundred nf them���and
each Zeppelin is escorted by from
twenty tei thirty of the largest size,
which act as her scouts and destroyers.
And here is another evidence of tin
thoroughness of German preparedness
in the air: For four years every Zeppelin bas weirked wilh its aeroplane
squadron to perfect tactics for engaging an enemy. Wireless signaling between the mother ship and her "planes"
was perfected three years ago. The
cloud of "destroyers" assists greatly
in minimizing tbe dirigible's vulnerability in the presence of an enemy on
land or in the air.
Spread out, like a huge fan, feir a
hundred miles in front of the airship,
these scouts���some of them fast planes
carrying two men and no equipment
but a wireless with a nine-ty-mile sending range���seek out thc wind and the
enmy, and relay the news by wireless
to intermediate planes and thus to the
master airship. Thus protected, the
dirigible, superbly ready, goes out for
conquest in the clouds.
They can paint other pictures than
grim scenes of destruction, the experts
who know the powers of the dirigible.
They can show us niagnilicant airships
plying back and forth across Europe
in the service of travel and trade; and
huge, beautiful boats crossing thc
ocean in a few days, on regular routes.
They can show us these great ships,
anchored iu their own element like our
great sea-going monsters; floating in
the air at the top of Eiffel-like teewers,
by sluert frontal cables, and by a st- "r ,
cable reaching lo the ground, allow- ��
ing the boat to swing witb the wind.
Gangways, reached by elevators, give
access to the ship from the top of the
tower, and a flexible gas-main inflates
the ship as she ritles at anchor. . . .
It is a pleasanter picture.

REEVE J. A. KERR,
Candidate for Reeveship in South Vancouver for 1915
Reeve Kerr's record demonstrates him an officer
of unusual merit. Ability, originality and progres-

the financial emergency that is upon Greater Vancouver in common with the whole country and the
world generally.
In brief, Reeve Kerr stands for progress along
lines of needed improvement so as to give the greatest
possible good to the greatest possible number.
His policy is one of wise economy in the distribution of emergency relief at once protecting the ratepayers against loss and saving the pride of the beneficiaries from being wounded. As a means to tHis
end and to future permanent prosperity the Reeve
has secured a definite promise from the Government
to finance, if necessary, the big sewerage project t<>
