FACTS AND FANCIES
By "Observer''
One of the best hated and most
t.iticised politicians of modern limes
i^s stated that he Owes hi.s career as
. staicsmrin to criticism. Some years
igd the name'of David Lloyd George
vs��:s anathema among the scion- of
British aristocracy and the members
i f ��� the Conservative party in Great
Britain. Venomous were the attacks
upon him; hut, Lloyd George was
something more than a politician, lie
had sense enough to recognise that
criticism was helpful; and instead of
resenting, lie welcomed i.t. He Icarn-
>.'! to sec himself as others saw him.
';'!ie criticism of opponents taught
him much more than the flattery of
friends. . He discovered and eradica-
��� le'l faults which would have been fatal
to his political career. Today the
r.alibrc of David Lloyd George as a
statesman ��� is recognized the wide
world over; and he owes his position
to the lessons taught by the criticism
i '��� his opponents.
* * *
1 mention that fact because 1 note
lliat criticism of Eddie Gold is evidently making him and his private
secretary and his supporter. Mr.
Thomas Rackner, just a little sore.
Which indicates that their armour has
been pierced, otherwise they would
ml squeal.
* * *
Eddie and his friends may take it
that "Observer's" criticism is friendly,
being intended to show them the error of their ways, rather than to ridicule them in the eyes of the public.
They arc old enough to know.that
more.good can be learned from criticism than from flattery���but I doubt
if they have sense enough to profit
by it. .

That he was a supporter of Eddie

hall without tenders being called for

taxes were paid by owners of the
Gold property and others there would
be no financial crisis such as now exists. That is a point which Eddie is
always very careful to keep in the
background. And it annoys him when

Editor CHINOOK:
Sir,���Why does not T. Rackner

isk
Reeve Gold, as a shareholder in tin
CIII.VOOK, to examine the payroll
and so set at rest any doubt as to the
identity of "Observer"? He might
also ask Councillor Campbell if He is
still of opinion that the .report to
which he once objected in regard to
espionage at the Municipal Hall was
inaccurate. In regard to libel actions,
T. Ityickner forgets that "the greater
the truth, the greater the libel," and
that justice, is not synonymous with
law. ��� " -
That portion of fiael-.ncr's letter Oil'
ast week referring to the, identity of
Observer" is scarcely worthy of reply.. Certainly the reporter lie refers
in is quite able to take care of-.him-
���s-..if. J would-like to point out. .however; that on Mr. Rackner's own showing, the reporter is evidently nol a
vindictive person, or lie would not
support Councillor.Campbell, as Rack-
ri.t?; say's ' he does, after the councillor's remarks concerning him; Thai
���s, apparently a trait of character
which vindictive persons, such as Eddie Gold ami iu's supporters * have
shown themselves to be. can not understand. They do not seem to realize that vindictivenc.-s does not pay

demonstrated that the Germans, even those of American or Canadian final consideration.   Reeve Gold, who;
naturally  has   strenuously  objected   to.
this bylaw,  was  voted  from  the  chair,
and  the moti
birth, have shown a devotion to the Kaiser which would stop at no
crime, no matter how appaling, in order that their policy of fright-
fulness be impressed upon the world. The fact that Vancouver is
well outside the sphere of actual fighting is no protection against the
brutes who have violated all the rules of civilized warfare, hence the
necessity for protective measures which, before the sinking of the
"Lusitania," with its consequent howl of delight from the German
press
coming imperative now that a crushing defeat for German arms is im-
was then unanimously  passed.
Reeve Gold signified his intention
of vetoing this measure and stalerl
that the councillors would be better
employed if they would attend to the
municipal business and leave the
reeve's alone.    He stated  he  had not
uneil lasted and pro-
.- would be there as
others had gone.
ndition of the -Main Street
paving was tin- cause of considerable
discussion, This matter has been before tli" council for the last two or
three meetings and at the last meeting
the engineer had been instructed lo
communicate with the Dominion Crco-
soting Company re having the street
fixed and put in good shape according io the contract. It was stated
that this had been done but the company had replied claiming .that the
municipality had broken their agreement.
It was finally decided that the engineer be instructed to give the Creo-
soting Company, 48 hours notice that
this work .had to be proceeded With,
and the engineer will then go ahead
and have the work done. A top
dressing of sand will be put over the
blocks to help to 'get the tar to settle.

For some weeks past men who have made a practice of dropping into the Strand from time to time have expressed their surprise that
the Union Jack was not displayed in the dining-room, and that the
I orchestra rarely if ever played patriotic music.
"The head-waiter at the Strand cafe," says a well-known busi-
I ness man, "has evidenced the most rabid pro-German tendencies.
I Of course he does not like to say much in the presence of guests, because he realizes that the soldiers who frequent the dining room in
their hours of leisure would be likely to rise in their wrath and give
him a few lessons in ettiquette, Nevertheless, he loses no opportunity of covertly sneering at the British and announcing his confidence
ai an ultimate victory for German arms."

Is it possible that if the military authorities of this city were aware of They must return home bnnrmin
these facts that they would allow this cafe to be made the rendezvous

there can be no question but that in the event of any matter of especial

'heard him giving orders t.i the head
foreman. "Bill," he said, "loyalty is
one thing ami three dollars and eighty-
five cents a pair is another. We'll
have to do the best we can for the
firm."
After that there was a lustily technical conversation, which, being no
anatomist, 1 did not understand, but
I heard Bill say, "We can make sixty
cents a pair if we use split leather instead of storm calf," and the superintendent replied, "Well let it go at
that." Then (bey both winked and i
had a feeling that 1 was being humbugged. As far as I could see, I was
a handsome shoe with a healthy outdoor tan, but somehow or other I
knew that the elements of strength
. were lacking.
I My twin brother and I passed t!l3
inspection with flying colors. There
j were three inspectors and they were
[paid by the Government not 10 hurt
I our feelings. One inspector. who
knew something about leather, took
me up and said "Humph!" lie passed
me on lo the second inspector who
knew as much about shoes as I do
about glass-blowing, and be said
"Good!" The third inspector who
knew still less, said "Very good!" and
the ordeal was over. My brother and
I had been taken from the middle of
a great stack of shoes as a fair sample and tile other thousand pairs were
passed, si. to speak, on our recommendation. At all events, none if those
shoes were examined ill my presence
and no shoes were pulled to pieces by i
the inspectors. They were nice, kind;
inspectors and they did'nt want to cut 1
which is a way some inspectors have when they are anxious 1 ii
get al the inside of a bad job. Our
inspectors were not thai sort. Any
cnlt:ng up there wis to d , they left I
to the field ,"' battle.
While we were "in stores" my bro-1
tber and I heard many startling tales.
They are obi stories now so 1 will not
repeat tluni. The worst one was that
a Halifax regiment had been obliged
Kirade with shingles tied to their
feet, the shoes they had been served
with having gone to pieces inside of
two weeks. I could hardly believe it
al the time and 1 have since heard
Major General Sam Hughes deny the
facts and call the officer who made
the statement a liar. Hut that does
not settle it in my mind. 1 know the
Major General's airy way of brushing
aside disagreeable truths and my own
experience teaches mc not to regard
his as the last word. I'll go on believing my own eyes���1 used to hav.
a dozen of 'em before they got ripped
out���before I'll believe the Major
General.
Luckily my brother and 1 were not
served out until the troops were leaving Valcartier Camp. As the Atlantic
Ocean is not hard on shoes we were
in fine condition on reaching Salisbury Plain, The feet we honored belonged to Private Jones of the Umpty
l.'mpth and he was proud of us for as
much as two parades. After that
came a route march and when Private Jones returned from a ten mile
tramp we had both turned black from
sheer mortification. The remainder
of our able-bodied existence was not
quite a month and we never got our
healthy color back, although Private
Jones polished and greased and rubbed
arid gave us plenty of complexion
food.
About the third week on Salisbury
Plain, the hardships began to tell.
You will notice that there are three
black bars on my instep. That was
when Private Jones tried to dry me
out at a stove. I have since heard the
lawyer   for   the   defence   argue   before
shoes  in  the  world  will  nol   take  th
place   "f   the   regulation   ;  my   shoe,
or  words  to  that   effect.     Bundle  1111
a  few  of  these  -hoes  and  send  them
along as  Exhibit  A."
And that's how I came to revisit
Ottawa and appear before the parliamentary committee. I never expected
to see my natne land and my high-
minded godfather again. 1 have seen
both and 1 can die happy now thai
1 have had a chance of telling what I
think of them. 1 can't say that I
have enjoyed myself for the last six
weeks tied up with hundreds of others
as   dilapidated   as  myself.     We're   an

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC
An All-British
Bakery
Having purchased the entire business and premises of the Dominion Bakery from the former
proprietors who were of Ger,man parentage and birth, we the undersigned wish to impress the
public with the fact that we are both British born and reared and have resided in Vancouver for
ten and eight years respectively.
In taking over the ownership and control of this bakery we earnestly solicit the confidence
and patronage of the Inlying public, and trust that by painstaking efforts on our part to maintain the high quality of our goods while employing absolutely none other than British labor, that
the stigma attached to this business on account of the nationality of the former proprietors will
be instantly removed.

WHEN you make a purchase in a "five, ten and fifteen cent"
store���all of these are under the same management���did it
ever occur lo you that you were helping to juppcrt a con-
, cern which pays its employees as little as three and four dollars a
week.in order that the predatory capitalists in New York which own
and control them and hundreds of others all over the continent, may
add lo their swollen fortunes. Three dollars a week for standing behind a counter from eight or half-past eight in the morning until six'
at night���ten on Saturday nights!    Yet ihe girls are expected to be!
! vigilant, courteous, obliging, never-wearying. Taunt the employer j
with the fact that three dollars a week is n,ot a living wage and he will I
tell you that he can get all the girls he wants. What does it matter |
to him if they are broken on the wheel, provided his profits are not j
curtailed.   True, it is not skilled labor, but even the unskilled worker
| must eat and three dollars a week won't buy a very big meal ticket
nor pay for many steaks in these days when all kinds of nutritive foods
are sky high in price.
SHOP GIRLS GROUND TO THE BONE
About 500 or 600 girls aie employed in the shops of Vancou-1
ver, Spencers, The Hitdsons Bay Company and Woodwards being
the chief offenders in the matter of paying low wages.    In these vast
emporiums some girls, it is said, receive as little as $4.00 a week, the
average wage paid being $7.00 or $8.00 weekly.   It must be remem-!
bered, moreover, that the girls working in these establishments are expected lo keep themselves attractively dressed at all times.    Is it any
wonder after paying room rent, board, carfare, laundry, etc., out of a j
stipend of $7.00 a week, that when it comes to buying a spring hat
or a new dress there's a temptation to "let George do it?"   The wen- i
der is not that a few girls go wrong from time lo lime, drifting into j
the ranks of the street walker and public prostitute, but that any maintain their virtue, and continue to walk day after day, week in and j
week out, the straight and narrow path, rendered unspeakably dreary j
and cheerless in many cases through lack of the social amenities and!
simple little pleasures which a few additional dollars would readily
purchase.
Supposing that what the preachers tell us is true, and that there
is a stern but just God that watches with keen interest every affair of
life, will he not place the department store proprietor who underpays
his female employees with the murderer, the seducer, the bawd and;
the white slaver? Live and let live is the law of life, and no matter;
how often he may go to church, 'nor how loud he may sing in the choir,;
the soul of the man who transgresses this essential principle of morali-
ty is so small that if placed in a hollow mustard seed it would rattle;
like a buckshot in a tin wash boiler.
r
WOMEN IN DOMESTIC SERVICE
It is interesting to note that more women are employed in domestic work in B. C than in any other field of activity, the average wage
being now $12 a month. Stenographers are in a bad state just now,
says Miss Gutteridge, there being more out of employment than in
any other line of work, owing to the collapse of the real estate and
financial boom, and those who are working have had their salaries
reduced 25 per cent, to 35 per cent. About the only class of women
workers who receive fair wages for their labors arc those employed
in custom tailoring, and this is due to the fact that they have a strong
union. Unskilled labor in most of our local factories commands $7
to $8 a week, more or less depending upon the nature of the employment and other factors.
"While wages in British Columbia are apparently much the
same as in other cities of Canada and the United States." says Miss
Gutteridge, "it must be remembered that the cost of living is higher
in this province than elsewhere. Our dollars have not the same purchasing power, which means that a girl earning eight dollars weekly
here is no better off, and perhaps not so well off, as a girl in Toronto
earning six. Moreover, there are not the same opportunities for advancement here for the girl anxious to lift herself out of the overcrowded ranks of unskilled workers as in eastern cities. The position
of the woman worker in this province is not at the present time a pleasant one."
WHO PAYS THE PIPER?
When you take a pencil and piece of paper and figure it out you
find that after all it's the dear public���which means you���who foots
the bills. The grasping employer gets the cream and others are lucky
if there's any skim milk left. It's like this: Low wages for women
and girls mean hunger and loneliness, which drive the weaker to prostitution or sickness, and then it's only a step to the hospital, the reformatory, the maternity home, or some other institution for the support
of which the dear public���you again, reader���are heavily taxed.
Or else you put your hand in your pocket and pay out money for
charity���charity which would not be needed if adequate wages were
paid. And so it goes, round and round in a vicious circle with the
devil for ringmaster. Perhaps the only way is to insist that the people you trade with pay their employees a real "living" wage.

boiling point and is therefore quite
understandable. Similar outbursts are
reported from many cities in the Old
Country. As usual, when people see
red, discriniinatii'ii went by the board
and the innocent suffered loss. Ii is
hoped the people of Vancouver will
not follow the example of Victoria,
but show true British self-control and
dignity. The right spirit for us all
just now is to stiffen ourselves, set
our teeth, and determine that by every legitimate means the "mad dog
of Europe" will have to drink to the
very uttermost dregs Ihe bitter cup of
humiliation and reparation. There is
indeed no other way to eradicate the
poison virus from the blood of the
German people than to make them
feel in their homes and country all
the horrors of the war they have precipitated. They must be made t<i

of madmen with respect to themselves
and their relationship to the other
pies of the earth. They are ob-

of the earth arc their special prey,
themselves are the elect of the earth
and God is their peculiar possession.
They have been taught on these lines
for several generations. The Kaiser
Wilheltii II. from the moment of accession took the education of his people in hand and turned it lo his own
purposes. He only tolerated teachers
and professors who would make it
their business to provide him with
physically well trained soldiers and
stamp out the ideals of social democracy from the minds of the young.
They had to teach in school gymnasium and university that all nations
other than the German nation were
decadent and contemptible. This has
gone on since 1890 until it is hardly
possible for a German to have any
sense of the value to the world of
any other nation. The charges made
against France and Great Britain, for
example, have been accepted by a
generation that has never had any
other view; put before them. The
great bulk of the German people seriously imagined before August 4. 1914,
that the French nation was so enfeebled as to be unable to offer any
armed resistance to the legions of
VVilhelm 11; the British so sunk in
sloth, decadence and tile love of comfort as to be incapable of armed resistance or commercial organization
in war time; and the Russian nalion
a horde of neglible and impoverished
barbarians. Hence a modern German
spirit of arrogance, conceit and inflated importance. lleiice their rage
and murderous hatred when confronted with  facts and disillusionment.

I DON'T KNOW, friend, exactly what you mean
by the First Church of Christ in Vancouver. St.
James' was built first. I can't tell you if it is still
first.' Owen probably can. There is a place of
that name on Georgia Street where they treat you
for toothache as well as for heartache, also there is
the Salvation Army.    Be more explicit, brother.
BERNSTORFF SKIPPED to the seaboard the
morning after. There can be no question but that
the German ambassador to the U.S.A. is partice
princeps to a foul murder. He, in fact, so advertised. Had he arranged that the passengers were
not to be killed they would have been saved. But
he did precisely the opposite. And herein the knave
is also a fool. The ship was a British bottom carrying, it is known, specific munitions of war, and
therefor subject to seizure and destroyal. As an
unarmed merchantman and passenger carrier on a recognized trade route, she should not have been so
employed. But the very fact that she was an unarmed passenger liner is alone sufficient to convict
of malice and express malice at that. We need go
no further. The brand of Cain is seared deep on
the forehead of this outlaw for all time. He ought
of course to be executed.
A CERTAIN MOVING PICTURE concern
on Granville Street sent out to Hastings Park admission tickets to be distributed gratitiously amongst
the men of the 1 Ith C.M.R. When the men put
in an appearance they were told by the proprietor
that they must be marched to the show or they would
not be admitted. One is tempted to. name this gentleman as a strongly undesirable citizen. His Majesty's uniform is not a medium for advertising cinematograph theatres.

cowardly crime which will be a sur-'

the "Lusitania" was built She was
the pride of the west of Scotland.
The Looker-t)n saw her launched
ami remembers the immense interest
displayed in this triumph of naval architecture when she took the water.
From far and near crowds thronged to
celebrate her advent until the banks
of the Clyde were piled with 150,000
people eager to participate'in the
launch of the leviathan. A year later
when fitted out she passed down the
river, similar enthusiasm prevailed.
How do you think the shipyard workers who created her and the people of
the west of Scotland whose pet she
was would receive the news of her
dastardly undoing? Well! the Looker-
On knows. A storm of rage would
sweep them and then a grim determination would possess them to make
every sacrifice to punish to the utmost the people responsible for the
outrage. Some reflections, whether
rightly or wrongly, have lately been
levelled at the Clyde shipyard workers
for idling and slacking. This incident will end all that. Their answer
to the Germans will'be redoubled energy and increased output of warships
and munitions. That p'art of "Auld
Scotia" has^alrcady done nobly. Glasgow alone has already raised 70.000
men and contributed $3,250,000 to the
war. Acts such as the sinking of the
"Lusitania" will he good for a considerable increase both in men and
money. That is the British way of
replying to German brutalities.
