WHAT OF THE WAR BABIES?
IN these columns last week was published an article setting forth certain facts regarding the war
baby problem.
Since the soldiers went  away  every   day    has
brought this question more closely to the attention of
the people.
Certain prudes have criticised the CHINOOK for
enturing to display to the public gaze a problem
vhich, they claim, is clothed in shame!
We have received, however, the thanks of several
en and women who are devoting their lives to chari-
y and upon whose shoulders fall a great deal of ihe
esponsibility of caring for scores of Vancouver girls
,vho are mothers of babies whose fathers are today
ffering their lives as sacrifices upon the altar of liberty.
There is a case.in point where a daughter of very
Respectable parents is in distress. Her parents are so
fcspectable thai the daughter is housed in a certain
Barter of the home, curtained off from communica
tion with all her friends and relatives, stamped by
tjieni as a bad woman.
Somewhere in France her lover is doing his duty
y the flag. In her dark room she may find solace
this fact, but surely her mental agony and physical
gony is, greater than any that the young man may
iiffer even if the Germans get him and nail him to a
ree.
What welcome is being prepared for the little par-
y who is to be the finished producl of all this sorrow
nd agony? Surely his eyes will blin': and Ins little
ace will draw itself up into a horrid scowl when he
irst meets the murderous glares of his relatives.
Is he to have the brand of shame placed upon his
orehead? ._
Is his mother going to be bustled on down the hill
r is she going to have a little bit of help and a few
tind words?
If some of the members of the House of Commons
vere not so mealy mouthed and self-righteous, this
iroblem would have their attention before now. The
onservation of human life should at all times be the
first object of a Government.
A law should be enforced legitimatizing all soldier
abes and legislation should be enacted which would
jive the single mothers a status in society such as to
rotect them from the rulings of that part of society
���ho go so infernally strong on conventions.
In the meantime the Government should come to
he aid of some of the poor girls in this city already
urned into the streets by "respectable" parents who
ove to quote almost any other part of the Bible but
hat section which tells of Jesus Christ personally
aiding a poor woman from below the dead line.
"When one is free one thinks of iron in terms of
industry. When free one has to deal with iron
ploughs and iron rails and iron horse shoes and iron
typewriters and iron pen nibs and iron printing presses. One thinks of iron as a great commodity which
lends itself to the uses of man, the advancement of
all branches of civilization.
'Once inside of a jail and a mans opinion of iron,
for example, changes like a flash.
"The animal in a man seems at first to take possession of him and the touch of iron, the thought of
iron, in my case, raised within me all the rebellious
blood of a long line of 'rebels' who date back to
the days when the covenanters spilt their gore upon
the heather.
"Iron was no more a friend of man, but man's
enemy.
"The iron bars in the windows were there to
cage man from his fellows.
'An iron spoon upon the wall was a fine instrument which in the midnight hour���if they could not
get the bail���to make into a saw to file one's way
out.
"The iron pipe in the wash basin was something
that might be wrenched from its place and used to
smatter out the brains of some constable who in the
evening���if the bail was not granted���would bring
upon an iron plate a bit of prison food.
"The very casement of the door seemed to form a
fitting for the entrance to a cave of the devil's own
making.
"Iron, iron, iron!
"I thought of the iron heel of the Emperor Wil-
helm, the policy of blood and iron, the iron ring of
von Hindenburg, the iron age of Germany, the hot
iron which burned out Arthur's eyes, the iron which
cased the torpedoe which sunk  the Lusitania,  the
"While I waited the mind wandered afar off,
over the sea of business and of politics and war. One,
it recalled, had stolen a hundred thousand dollars
from a Government and had not been jailed, had
not been summoned, had not been even slapped upon the wrist. Another had wrenched from a starving province a hundred thousand acres of lands and
was holding it for increase in value. Another had
tried to kill and had got off. Another had sold bad
boots to soldiers and had escaped with a rich profit.
Yet another had grafted deeply upon the public
purse and had been knighted for it. The mines of
British Columbia had killed more men during the
past year than had been lost by any British Columbia regiment at the front. Nor had their been a
word of comment in the press.
'Yet I who, even were I guilty of the charge
MEN WANTED, MEN!
ODAY as never before the cry is ringing over
the length and breadth of this land for men
and yet more men. And the men are responding, the finest, the fairest, the best of our nation's
manhood are rallying to the call and willingly giv-
T
ng up all to serve King and Country in the cause of
peace and righteousness.   Well done!
But what about the other call that comes to the
men of this province in this present crisis? God
knows we need men. Never before in the history of
Canada has a province stood in the deplorable plight
and condition that B. C. stands in today.
The meeting held on Tuesday evening last in Vancouver dealing with the "Crisis in B. C." will long
be remembered by those who were privileged to be
present.   Never before has such an indictment been
iron of shrapnel, the iron of rifles, 'of cannon, of
bayonets, the hot iron with which Hell is undoubtedly paved.
'Such were my first impressions upon entering the
place. And from speculating upon the qualities of
iron, the mind passed to other things and people and
in the few momenls in which it all happened, strange
were the involuntary, uncontrollable movements of
the mind.
'That man there, a great husky policeman, who a
brief half hour ago was a decent, kindly, jolly officer of the law, one who had his duty to do and did
it in a businesslike and courteous manner, was suddenly transformed into a fiend of iniquity. His sunburnt cheeks immediately took on the ruddy hue
which fancy said indicated the third degree lust.
"The magistrate who had sent the case to a higher court passed down the corridor. Now, Magistrate Raney is a broad-minded, big-hearted official
who sees good in all men and who uses his office to
do good for men, to help them and not to down
them. Suddenly his grey hairs" were found to cover
a face in which the wrath of the law was written,'
the face of a maniac whose job was to jug people
and tie them up with chains and balls of iron. He

WO HOURS IN JAIL
LET us observe the laws of the land by refrain
ing from discussing the merits of the criminal
"ibel suit instituted against the editor of this
oaper last week, a suit which brings with it much un-
easant notoriety.    It is permissible, however, to
tate that following the preliminary hearing of the
ase, the editor was taken in charge by an officer of
ie law and was confined to jail for a period, the
revity of which was due entirely to the good heart-
dness of two gentlemen who have been constant
eaders of this paper and were prepared to put up
ail bonds in any sum the court might name.
Mr. Murray was asked to make a statement in
>e CHINOOK descriptive of the thrills which he
xperienced during the two hours in which he was
clinically a prisoner. He stated that it would be
npossible for him to put into brief form a story of
ie fears and hopes which smote him at the entrance
the dungeon, but that he wouldn't mind telling
f the change one's outlook on life undergoes during
he first few minutes of even a temporary loss of
liberty.    His statement follows:
'Iron is the most useful metal which yields to
e hands of man.    Iron plays a mighty part in the
vorld for good, and a mightier part for evil.

people who, he alleges, were slandered in an anti-
German communication printed the dav before.
Rabbi  Rosengard wastes ink when he goes to |
the [rouble of publicly defending his flock.    Those
who know Vancouver well know that Israel's sons
on the whole are loyal and worthy citizens.
If we remember correctly, the writer who roused
the Rabbi's feelings stated that    several    German j
Jews in Vancouver were in the way of taking big
usury on small loans.
And why not?
Do not some of our own intensely Imperial, Anglo-Saxon members engage in the same practice.
Has it been publicly charged that Vancouver's citizens who occupy seats in the high places of the land
are in on the big rake-off?
Look over the names on thc boards of some of
the more insignificant Vancouver financial institutions.
It is true that usury is being practiced on the city
by good Anglo-Saxon gentlemen to an extent which
would put the Jew moneylenders to shame.
We sympathise with Rabbi Rosengard. Centuries of bad advertising have resulted in all Jews being placed under suspicion until it has been proven

public purposes, which they contend
is Ihe only fair and practical method,
but which involves the personal interests of Smart,

To achieve this object Smart decides lo gel rid of Smarter, whom he
suspects of advising the seven apprentice councillors as to ways and means.
To do this, Smart and his own confidential adviser, A. Secretary, concoct

Municipal Affairs At Standstill
The   Reeve   Suspend*   Clerk   Spring ford   and   Brings   about
Financial Chaos
A special meeting of the municipal
council was called on Wednesday
morning at II o'clock for the purpose
of making arrangements for the signing of certain notes coming due from
this municipality, A peculiar situa-
lion had arisen in Ibis mailer through
the suspension nf Municipal Clerk
Springford, and il was to clear up this
that the meeting was called.
Reeve Gold stated that he wished
an acting clerk to be appointed so
that notes of $60,000, $207,200 and
$10,000 falling due could be signed
and delivered and thus facilitate the
business of the municipality.
Councillor Campbell asked why
such action was necessary and the
reeve slated thai it was due to the suspension of the municipal  clerk.
Asked if he intended to report the
suspension, the reeve stated he would
not do so till the next regular meeting of the council which lakes place
next Monday, June 7th.
Councillor Campbell: "Arc you going to adopt the same measures towards Springford that you have adopted towards the other employees you
have suspended?"
Reeve Gold: "It's not for me lo
tell the council whal  I  intend to do."
Councillor Campbell: "Why were
these notes not signed. It's your neglect; you ought to have seen that
this was done; it's your business to
have seen to this."
Reeve Gold: "It is not my business;'it was Sprlhgford's work to see
this was done."
Councillor Stanley: "Reeve Gold,
you have the mailer in your own
hands; you can soon settle Ibis. You
can have Ihe clerk reinstated and Ihe
trottble will be over."
Reeve Gold: "I called this meeting
to facilitate the business of the municipality. 1 can fill Springford's place
and can save the salary of thai official to the municipality."
Councillor Stanley: "Then what did
you  call  this  meeting for-"
Reeve Gold: "To make these notes
legal."
Councillor Campbell here asked the
reeve if it was a fact that A. H. Seymour had ihe combination of the safe
Reeve Gold slated that Seymour had
not Ihe combination, as he, the reeve,
had it in his own pocket.
Councillor Campbell lo Clerk Welton: "Mr. Welton. did you not say
that Seymour had ihe combination-"
Mr. Welton: "I said that I had seen
Mr, Seymour  with Ihe combination."
Councillor Campbell: "I claim that
Clerk Springford had no right lo give
up ihe safekeeping of the municipal
monies and bonds. Tie was under
heavy bonds for their safekeeping and
an audit should have been taken before
ibis was done."
Reeve Gold: "Perhaps he would not
like an audit. He was using Ihe money that was mortgaged lo the bank
for other purposes."
Councillor Allen: "For what oilier
purposes  was  he  using (his  money-"
Reeve Gold: "He had no right' to
use them for any other purpose."
Clerk Welton on request, explained that this money had been used on
one occasion lo pay an official who
had been suspended al a lime when
there was no money in the bank.
Councillor Allen: "Not a very serious mailer after all, the people should
know ihe whole irulh about these insinuations."
Councillor Stanley here arose and
was preparing lo leave but was requested lo be Seated until he had asked leave or until the meeting was adjourned.
Councillor Allen: "Reeve Gold,
you've oflen made these remarks that
we don't need clerks, we don't need
employees. If wc don't need them
then  why have this meeting?"
Reeve Gold: "Oh you're out qf order You're only making a display
of yourself."
Councillor Welch: "As far as I am
concerned, the suspension of Clerk
Springford don't interest me, but
what about the men who are waiting
to have their cheques changed. ' I
claim, Reeve Gold, this is partly your
fault. You must have known that
this note was required."
Reeve Gold: "It was your clerk's
fault, not mine."
Councillor Stanley: "It's up to the
reeve to recall the clerk and the difficulty will be over."
Reeve Gold: "This municipality
does nol require a clerk, and I'll keep
my office downstairs and save the
municipality this $1800. I've called
Ibis meeting to facilitate the business, and you can have your redress
on  Monday if you wish."
Councillor Campbell: "You have the
remedy in your own hands if you
wish to use il."
Reeve Gold: "What! you mean thai
1 should withdraw the suspension of
Olerk Springford? Surely you are
joshing me;kiiowing me as you do,
sur.ely you are joshing."
Councillor Allen: "Knowing you as
they do. they are surprised thai you
are in Ibis jackpot."
Reeve Gold: "Have we started gambling now?"
Councillor Allen: "I did not creale
...is situation in which you find yourself, so il dues not interest me."
Reeve Gold: "Perhaps if you could
not sleet) at nights for thinking about
the affairs of Ibis municipality il
would interest you."
Councillor Allen: "My holdings arc
all in the municipality."
Reeve Gold: "And that's not much."
Councillor Allen: "Il means as
much to me as the big holdings of
the rich man does to him."
Reeve Gold: "Ten cents Inoks a lot
to some people  sometimes." _
Councillor Russell here moved (o
adjourn, but Councillor Welsh slated
he was preparing a motion lo put lo
the  meeting.
The motion of Councillor Welsh,
which was for the purpose of authorizing ihe assistant clerk to sign the
notes, failed to find a seconder and
Councillor Russell again moved for
adjournment   and   Ibis   was   carried.

CORRESPONDENCE
Editor CHINOOK:  .
In your issue nf Ihe 20th, "Observer," in his "Facts ami Fancies,"
states thai Eddie Gold has Ihe support of the local Socialist party. \'ow,
sir, it seems to me that "Observer" is
more indebted to fancy than to facts.
The only Socialist organization in
South Vancouver is I be Social Democratic Party, nf which there arc several locals. As Ihe most regular attendant of Ihe South Hill local of the
S. D. P.. I want to say lhal we, as
an organization, did nol support Gold,
or indeed any one of the candidates
for reeve, they being all of the same
capitalist class, and also in the same
line of business, real estate. Each
man voted as he saw fit, and possibly
there were a few Socialists supporting Gold, others supported Kerr, and
I  daresay,  each  of  th
l her candl-
diates received a share of the Socialist vote. Also Gold received a share
of Liberal votes, yet the CHINOOK
would resent it, if the Liberal party
was credited with  supporting  Gold.
What difference does il make In
Ihe mouse which cat catches him. except perhaps a slight difference in Ihe
degree nf cruelly, Some may think the
black less cruel, others thc white, or
the  grey.
Regarding the two gentlemen particularly mentioned who may lie supporting Mr. Gold, I would say F.
Hisselt is a member of nur organization and a much respected one: bin
even the wisest man may ��� err, perhaps he could explain satisfactorily
whv he appears lo be a supporter of
Gold. I may add lhal be wai heard
to say on election dav that *nol one nf
the candidates were satisfactory from
a   Socialist   standpoint. ,
Mr. Mengel is nol one of our organization, but belongs to ihe Social
ist Party of Canada, which has no organization in South Vancouver. Mr.
Bissett may be against a tax sale because a great many of the working
class have been an idle class for so
long they are unable to pay their taxes, and may lose their little homes,
their all in many cases.
If the council would hold a tax sale
of lands which are held for speculation, then, 1 think, they would not
meet with so much opposition. All
unproductive land should be made to
produce and feed the starving people
and if the owners will neither use it
nor pav their taxes, then the government should do it in the interests of
the people.
Personally. I am one of (hose individuals who though born in Canada
of English parents have never been
permitted to have a share in the government of our country. I certainly
would not have supported Gold and
I know there are a great many other
Socialists who think as 1 do,, and who
do not uphold him. If "Observer" is
right, why has Gold suspended Socialists among others. We Socialists
are in this gape of life, and until such
time as we can succeed in changing
the rules of the game, we are compelled to do the best we can under
existing rules.

Editor CHINOOK:
Sam, the Waterworks Lad
Sir,���Out of the tumult and disorder caused by the suspension of employees  at  the  Municipal    Hall    by
Reeve Gold, there is Orte ease which
should be brought prominently in the
notice of the public.
Sam, the waterworks lad. is an un-
gainly youth of about IS years. He
��� is what we call in Ihe Northern part
of Greal Britain an "innocent" and
this word explains a lot. lie is the
snle support of his widowed mother
and four brothers and sisters, making:
|in all a total oi six in the family. He
earned $2.00'per day. and he has been
suspended by order nf his imperial
majesty, Reeve Gold.
The Reeve has done 'his glorious
deed under I he cover of "eo'inomy."
Now, you working men and women,
let me appeal to you to your hoiics-
ly, your sympathy and your good
judgment.
You wives who have still got your
husbands to sympathise and assist
you through these times of oppression, give a thought lo this poor widow and her son.
"Well, mother, I've got my money,"
said Sair. "Thank God for that."
And   his   mother  rejoiced   with   him.
Then, as si ruck by a blow from the
ungodly, she read the note Sam had
handed In him by orders of Reeve
Gold. Sinking to a chair, she covered   her   lace   with   her   hands   In   hide
her grief and uttered those uncontrollable word! nf the afflicted, "Oh,
God  help us."
Well may we offer up the prayer
in our Litany, "Have mercy upon all
Fatherless children," and well may we
plead with bated breath on bended
knee. "Wc  beseech Thee  lo hear us
good    l.nrd."
Thc scene has changed for a moment and the Reeve is thundering at
his Councillors. He is explaining
that he'has suspended these "suckers" and "parasites" in order to economise in order to find work for the
working man. Hah! You working
men, have you no manhood left? Do
you think he gives one thought to
you or to your condition? If so, why
not stay bis hasty hand in the dismissal of this innocent lad? You need
have no thought that he considers
you. If it was necessary to trample
you in the dust to satisfy his own vindictive and insatiable greed for power.'
he would brush you on one side as'
chaff before  the wind.
You hard headed men of South',
Vancouver wrangle this over in you,
minds. You have still your health
and strength, you and your wives
feel proud of vour sons and daughters
as they run from the house to meet1
you, they have your protection, they
receive every kindness and eonsidcra-
tioi. from your bands, and even if
you should go short yourselves, you
still ran sav with heartfelt thanks
that the children get their daily bread.
Will you then ever again give power to this Shvlock to grasp from thc
home of Sam the Waterworks lad, the
verv food which keeps his widowed
mother alive?
Read   over   again   and   again   these
few lines:
"You lake my house when vott do take
the prop that doth uphold my house.
You take my life when you do take
the means wherebv I live."
It is eventide again and Sam's mother is on the lookout for her lad's
return, but while he is vet afar off she
can discern from his dejected appearance that there is still no work, no
food, no hope.

" When You Can't Find A
Job, Make One"���
J. W. Weart Wasn't Afraid to Buck Wood at 60c a Cord
IN Eighteen I lundred and Sixty-one, a few years before the Fenian Raid, a boy was born at Brockville under an inclination of
the stars winch seers sometimes declare mark a child    as    hot-
blooded, aggressive, obstinate, unconquerable.
Whether the Whigs or Tories were in power in Upper Canada
at that time makes little difference. Possibly the country had not recovered from the activities of that early Canadian political ring known
as the Family Compact. At any rate times were hard and Dad,
who was a contractor, was not quartered on Easy Street in July of
that year.
Many a good man has never had the opportunity of invetiga-
ling the mysteries which are shrouded by the Fourth Reader. So it
was with this lad. Four years in the common school saw him into
the Fourth. Dad then introduced him to a kit of carpenter's tools,
and for three years his constructive talents were drawn out and his
blood was cooled down as he served as a sort of aide de camp to Dad
in the gentle art of butchering wood.
During these last three years times got very hard and the move |
the family had to make to Belleville had not helped the family fortunes, and it came to the point where the larder ran low and there
was no fuel in the house and the youngsters needed shoes for the hard
Canadian winter.   Dad didn't go to the municipality and protest that
ver, and ihe family fortune was Twenty-nine   Dollars  k-ss  than  nothing.
Twenty-five   years   agu   Vancouver
was  not   iln-  financial   centre  of   the
universe,  and   times   were   not   what
they have been since.    Bui tin  former

GEORGE M. MURRAY.
He Learned Life's Lesson at the Potter's Wheel
he was a ratepayer and must have rebel work or a fist in the charity
box. Dad didn't start an agitation for a change of Government or
didn't join'the I.W.W.
Dad unlimbcred the artillery of his trade, took young Johnnie
by the ear, led him to a near-by wood and for three long winter
months Dad and the boy cut stove wood���sixty-five cords of it���at
sixty cents a cord
11 has been said that Work is noble,
even sacred. Il so, J. W. Weart has
all his life followed thai which i-- noble and sacred. Il is ihe boast of Ins
fifty-five years as a pioneer in Eastern anil Western Canada that he has
never been one day out of work.
When there wasn't a job al hand lie
created one. And that's the kind of
stuff out of which was made the
young man who crossed the cross-cut
saw through ihe log to his father in
Belleville forty-five years ago ��� at
sixty cents a cord.
After thc wood cutting was done,
there was no job in sight and young
Weart then promoted a job for himself, there was a particular kind of
clay to bo had in the vicinity ol" the
town and the lad thought it would be
a good scheme to gather in a bunch
of this clay and start up a pottery
works. He would make beautiful
vases and cups and saucers and crockery jars. So a partnership was entered into with another lad and a
plant was opened up and' for a time
a  thriving  business   was  developed.
Possibly-it was the rude clay, revolving upon the potter's table, that gave
J. W. Weart the inspiration to go
forward and do big things. "Hast
thou  looked  on   the   Potter's  wheel?"
asked Carlyle; " one of the vene-
rablest objects, old as the Prophet
Ezekiel, and far older?"
In those boyhood days, J. W. Weart
had an opportunity of learning the
Great Lesson from the Potter's
Wheel, lie learned that all things
must revolve if progress is to be
made. The rude lumps of clay upon
his revolving wheel "spun themselves
up ny mere quick whirling into beautiful dishes." Given the same clay,
but without the wheel and the most
assiduous workmen could not hope,
' uy mere knecding and baking, to accomplish anything but a botch.
J. W. Weart probably learned from
his crude old potter's wheel what the
great Carlyli wrott 'Ol an idle, unrevoking man the kindi bi di stin>.
like the most assiduous Potter without
wheel, can baki and knead nothing
other than a botch; le; hei spend on
him that expensive coloring, gilding,
and enamelling she will, he ts but .1
botch. Nol a dish: in . a bulging.
kneaded, crooked, shambling, squint-
cornered, amorphous botch���a mere
enamelled vessel of dishonorl Let
ihe idle think  of this."

It was in September of Seventy-
nine that young Weart threw aside
thc rnnls of thc pottery trade, liquidated his tiny business and put in
two winters at otic of those little cross
roads schools ill Maddock Township
���one of those three-windows-and-a-
door academies which have turned out
so many good.men and women.
lie would nol he an idle, inircMliving man, and in a remarkably shori
space of time he fitted himself for
the Third Class Certificate examinations, passed successfully and wielded
the birch for one year. He invested
his net savings in a course at a business college, put in a winter studying
commercial law and book-keeping and
carried off thc honors of the business
college that term with ninety-two and
one-eleventh per cent.
The story of J. W. Weart's experiences on the Prairies of Manitoba
after he landed in Winnipeg in Eighty-
Two is the story of many an other
Western Canadian on friendly terms
with Work. It is not surprising that
within one year of his arrival ill the
West that Mr. Weart firmly decided
that it was not well for man to live
alone. It was in Crystal City therefore, that he found a bride in Miss
Minnie Reid, a farmer's daughter, and
the wedding took place April 17 in
Eighty Three.
It was in Eighteen Ninety that J.
W. Weart, Mrs. Weart and the three
busy little Wearts landed in Vancou-

THE people of Vancouver are a long-suffering "bunch." They tolerate without aparenl resentment conditions which no self-respecting community ought to allowi Their principal health-resort anil
bathing-beach at English Hay is made hideous by the fire-blackened
ruin corner of Beach Avenue and Denman, with its heaps of charrec
debris. This eyesore belongs to the North West Trust Company, who
stated nine months ago thai they had under consideration a comprehensive scheme which would make this prominent corner worthy of its
surroundings. Nothing lias been (lone. Are the people content to have
ii so, and careless of the effect such exhibitions of want of taste will
have on the strangers now passing through from far and near? Js there
no such thing as public opinion among us? If the owners of the property have no sense of decency let us make our council take action and
remove this blot.
* *. *
Perhaps, however, their worships' consciences prevent them moving
in this matter while they have on hand an equally offensive property of
their own ;it the other entrance to .Stanley Pa'rk. The city dump at the
bridge there which the medical officer of health sometime ago condemn-
er as a menace to public health still shows its festering ugliness to the
summer sun as we pass into our health resort.
Our murky minds, too, accept with equanimity the pollution of the
city atmosphere by black smoke. The other day the Looker-On in passing down Granville was sickened to see dense volumes of black smoke
pouring forth from the chimney stalk of the Hotel Vancouver. Apart
irom the pollution of the air, the blot on the landscape in a picturesque
city like Vancouver is a consideration. The vista looking' down Granville with the 'mountains of the North Shore in the background is one
we may well be proud of. Why should the C. P. R. mar this fair scene
by belching forth black smoke from their hotel as they often do? Smoke
prevention is now a simple science and ought to be enforced in this city
without fear or favor.
* * *
While the things that count in the life of the ordinary citizen go
drifting on the city council are muddling away at the finance, making
frantic efforts lo extricate themselves from the quagmire into which
they have tumbled. On the one hand they are creating unemployment
by discharging civic employees and cutting down their wages, on the
other they are issuing money bylaws to heap up further debt on an already overburdened city. How long are the people going to stand for
this? The Looker-On sees a day of reckoning near at hand when we
will all suffer. The sins of the fathers are about to be visited upon the
children. Sooner or later an expert in municipal finance will have to
be called in to set the finances of this city on a sound basis. ..Meanwhile
thc council lias $1,800,000 outstanding accounts in the shape of overdue
taxes. If efforts are not made to collect these by the ordinary legal
methods; others will he encouraged to default. Should these arrears
of taxes continue to grow, as they assuredly will if the present policy
of drift is maintained, are the large ratepayers going to continue their
payments and shoulder the burden? Not likely! The Looker-On already hears of some of them determined to go "on strike." Truly an
amazing muddle I
* * *
Dr. Sarolea, formerly lecturer in Edinburgh (Scot.) University,
and Belgian Consul in that city, has been addressing crowded meetings
here recently. Jlc has been accredited by his government to tour the
Lulled States and Canada on behalf of his stricken and starving country. Those who listened lo his terrible story of the martyrdom of Belgium in Wesley Church on Friday could not fail to be deeply moved by
its pathos and horror. The success of his appeal for monetary aid for
his stricken countrymen amply proved that he had won the sympathy
of his audience. Judge, then, the profound disgust and indignation felt
by the Looker-! >n when the chairman announced that he had been asked
by a man | lei us rather say, a cad I in the meeting, the question ; "What
does Dr. Sarolea gel out of this?" One would have expected a chairman with an\' sense of decency to have promptly squashed this cad himself, bttl no, lie insults Dr. Sarolea by inviting him to answer it! How
everyone could sec that Dr. Sarolea is a gentleman in the true, pure
Saxon meaning oi [he Word, Mis dignified rep!) proved that, hut it
sounded to ihe L,ooker-On as a scathing rebuke to the utterly vulgar
questioners, "I gel a great deal out of tin-. I get the satisfaction ol
doing something to alleviate thc unspeakable miseries of my tortured
country, and help Ihe cause for which I am precluded from bearing
arms." 11" ihe skin of the questioners was.not abnormally thick, this calm
rejoinder \u an insult should have made them properly humble and
.-named.
* * *
Are these questioners a type of the average Canadian in their attitude towards public service? Is it true, as is asserted, that no man
can serve here, his country, his city, or his fellows in a public capacity
without thc question being immediately asked, "What is he after? How
much does he get out of this ?" If it is, "God save Canada." It's a rotten civilization under which no progress is possible. No country, no
city, no community, can live, far less flourish, if dominated by pure
selfishness. But it is not true and wc should "cut it out" from our
thpitghts and vocabulary. At the'present time Canada is pouring out
her treasure on the altar of patriotism. Her men and women are giving ungrudging service, morning, noon and night for the boys, for the
cause, for martyred Belgium. In Vancouver itself many are serving
without fee or reward to bring about better conditions in the city. The
war has taught us to put patriotism before pocket. Let us carry the
same ideals into our public and business life.
* * *
After all our recent boot enquiry at Ottawa did not pillory our
manufacturers of Tommy's footwear before the world as grafters and
public plunderers. They emerged very well from the searchlight. How
docs this story told by Dr. Sarolea compare. Belgium's brave little
army was worn out in boots. None were obtainable in Britain, Kitchener having "scooped the pool" for his army. A large order was placed
in the United Stales. When delivered 35,000 pairs were condemned!
Poor Belgium! Immaculate, conscientious United States! How beau-
uiully neutral!

The most Instruments! act which
lias ever toured the Pantages circuit
will be the toplinc offering which
Manager Graham will offer his patrons nt the popular Hastings Street
theatre fur the coming week and mi-
less all signs fail this will prove one
of the haimer attraction! in Ihe history   nf  the   house.    This   notable   act
is presented by the Six Klrksmlth Sisters. An air of refinement pervades
(he turn which in itself would distinguish il from the ordinary musical
feature. It stands in a class by itself. To begin with it is beautifully
Staked, the scenery representing an
ancient Greek temple, and their costuming is in harmony. The girls are
all exceptionally attractive 'and individually they are star- soloists. One
of the sisters possesses a remarkably
fine voice which she uses to great advantage in a number of popular and
standard song selections. She is also a violinist of great artistry. Other
instruments which are played are piano, cornet, trombone, saxophone and
French horn. ��
A singing, talking and patter act
which will linger in your memory as
among the good things of the season
will be presented by Halley and Noble, ���a clever male comedian and a
beautiful and talented girl. The former introduces an eccentric dance
which never fails to register a big hit.
Their songs and fun arc all fresh and
catchy. They have been tremendously successful all along the line
and cannot fail to make a hit with
Vancouver audiences.
The Three Webber Sisters are
mighty pretty damsels who have one
of the most startling and unique acrobatic turns you can imagine. Their
costumes are daringly beautiful and
the whole act is unusual in every sense
of the word. .
Other features which you will like
will be Fisher, Schaffer and Rocka-
wav. The Flying Fishers, and a dandy
showing of motion pictures.

these weeks. Not content with having the Master Key and other great
features, they have now promised
to go one better still and from now
on, they will have the Chaplin features just as soon as they can procure the films.
Anyone who has witnessed one of
the Chaplin comedies does not require tc> be told anything about them.
He is in a class by himself as a mirth

There is now no need for the South

All About the Roblin-Rogers
Real Estate Government
By H. F. GADSBY
Ottawa, June 4.���The wise buys are
I guessing  thai   there  mast  have  been
warm language between Sir Rodmond
[Roblin and  the   Hon.  Robert  Rogers
when  they   me!   "ii  neutral   ground  in
.Toronto a few days ago.
Sir Rodm ind has been the Honorable Bob's benefactor from thc begin-
fining of his political lifu and naturally
a. the Honorable Bob doesn't see why
he couldn't have gone on being a benefactor by hanging on a little longer
in Manitoba. Once a benefactor, always a benefactor���that is Hob's motto, and he believes that benefactors
should live up to it even a! tome slight
disadvantage to themselves. At all
events it was a particularly bad time
for Sir Rodmond to spill the beans.
Sir Rodmond had been under good
advice from the Honorable Bob and
others for months past but none of
his advisers expecled him to do what
he did. Their advice to Sir Rodmond
was that he should resign and let his
colleagues form a new cabinet with
a new premier and thus avoid handing
the Government over to the Liberals.
Sir Rodmond's colleagues thought
very well of that plan, and the Hon.
orable Bob, hot foot from Ottawa,
pressed it on him from time to time,
but Sir Rodmond figured that il would
make him the goat and raised objections,
Finally he became real peeved and
said "Jusl for that you'll get off."
He resigned, as it were, in a body,
taking his colleagues with him. It
I was the neatest thing in the way of
la double cross since Sam-oii sacri-
] fii ed himself to destroy the Philis-
| tint -., Ever since this signal act of
revenge Sir Rodmond has been able
to lake a philosophical view of Manitoba politics. His interviews with Liberal newspaper reporters are mil nf
human kindness toward Premier N'oi
ris whom he wishes long life and
prosperous statesmanship. In fact
ii almost appears as if he would rather have Premier Norris on the job
than his own friends who might ma
lign him if Ihey remained in offici
and he didn't. Absence, as the poel
aptly puis it, makes the hammers
stronger.
Everything Sir Rodmond has said
since lie resigned sounds like a benediction to public life but it would not
surprise anybody ii he swung into
the bigger game at Ottawa, instead
of enjoying the comfortable sunset
to which he is entitled. His being a
Manitoba discard would be no real
argument against him because the
presenl administration al Ottawa Ii -
a lenient feeling ; iward discard-. [|
wasn't so long ago, for example, that
Sir Richard McBride was being
broached for a cabinet position at
Ottawa, and doubtless Sir Richard
would have landed ii it hadn't been
for his adventures with Attorney-
General Bowser, and the two submarines. Sir Richard's work with thc
iw>, submarines was careless, if ii
wasn't coarse, and spoiled his chances. Finesse is wha! the situation demands���.finesse thai will defy the
best efforts of Ihe Public Account-
Committee. Anybody, as short on
finesse as Sir Richard McBride, could
never get along at Ottawa,
Sir Rodmond Roblin.'on the contrary, has shown great deftness 'ti
getting 'ill .oi his trouble- IL has
nol only got out himscll but he ha- lefl
Ifis friends holding the bag and has'
displayed qualities which prove that
he ha- nothing to learn even from Ihe
Honorable Robert Rogers. Indeed
tin re are thosi who say that thc Hon
orable Hob learned his tradi from Sir
Rodmond, and that thc master can
still leach the public a nick nr two.
Be that a- it may. the Honorable Lob
hasn't the same reputation as a Frankenstein with Sir Rodmond, as In li -
with other people who don't know him
so well, if be is a Frankenstein then
Sir Rodmond created him and familiarity breeds contempt II is being
recalled that, when the lion, .table
Hob, in tin reciprocity election of
1911, was. made responsible and delivered Ihe goods from Winnipeg to
ihe Rockies. Sir' Rodmond was jealous and bad to be made a knight as
an offset to Bob's getting the big job
at Ottawa.
The feeling which actuates both
Sir Rodmond and the Honorable Bob
is that ingratitude is sharper than a
serpent's tooth and consequently each

i- very much ashamed of the other
Sir Rodmond naturally remembers
lhal he made Hob the right hand man
of his real estate government and that
Bob rose with Ihe real estate while
he. Sir Rodmond, remained to decline
ami fall with il. Hob was a very lucky
man lo be a member of a real estate
government when real estate was
booming. He shared in the era of
i xpansion, helped to keep it expanded,   in   fact,  by   his  personal   and  of-
j fieial influence went on soaring even
alter the town lots had fallen behind.
Hob soared sky high and came out of
the clouds  with  a  silver  lining  which
Lis going to be a great  comfort  to his
old age.
Sir   Rodmond   remembers     all   that
and   naturally   puts   it   down   to   him-1
si If,   forgetting   the   element   of   luck   U
and  Hob's own merits as a foresight-1 _
ed,  forehanded  man,  who  knew  what
was   going   to   happen   next   and   was
generally  on  the spot when  a  shower
of   ble.-sing   was   scheduled    to   burst
in Winnipeg or any of the other town
lot centres of activity.    Sir Rodmond,
knowing  how   the  game  was   played,
naturally   feels   that   one   real   estate
operator   males   as   good   a   minister!
of   Public   Works  as  another.     What I

Do You Want Bigger  Poultry Profits?
LET OUR EXPERTS SHOW YOU HOW
A few years ago poultry raising was a comparatively easy matter.
But today it is different. With the cost of feed going up���with competition growing keener and keener���with the rapidly increasing number
of truly scientific poultry raisers���the man who now raises poultry at
a profit simply MUST learn the business from thc bottom up.
He must know how to feed and breed for eggs���how to get the
most rapid growth for market���how to most successfully breed for
show purposes. lie must know the short cuts to success. He must
study the experience of others.
The poultry raising course of the International Correspondence
Schools comprises 24 practical lessons for home study. It represents
the experience of thc most successful poultry raisers in the world as
well as our own wide experience on the Rancocas Farm at Brown's
Mills, N. J.���the world's largest poultry farm.

WEEL FREENS. I din-
nie ken what it is, whether it's the chenge in the
weather or no', but I'm no' feelin'
owre brawly the noo, an' it comes
as a sort o' a task tae sit doon an'
write, especially when the nichts
are sae long licht an' the flooers
o' the gairden are temptin' wan
ootdoors efter supper time.
I had intended, in fact, tae tak
a rest for a week, for a fellie gets
tired aye harpin' on the same tune
a' the time, for I cannie sit doon
wi' a pencil in my haun' withoot
I see Bowser an' his cronie, McBride appearin' as a vision afore
me, challengin' me tae say ony-
thing mare vile agin them than
what I hae said.
Then again, a fellie could
write reams aboot the daens up
in Sooth Vancoover, vvhaur a kin
o' comic opera is bein' staged the
noo���but, what's the use? Evidently the folk are sae muckle
absorbed in the war, or else they
hae got sae scunnered that they
try an' forget it���at least that's
the only reason I can see for al-
looin' the farce tae go the length
il has. I often wunner mysel
whether it's a' a dream or the
reality.
Hooever, awa frae it. It's
seeckinin' tae read o't an' I clinnie
want tae sin my sovvl thinkin' a-
boot it. Some folk say it's a great
joke, but I'm mare inclined tae
think o' it as a tragedy.

I wunner if ony o' yae read
that address by Dr. Sarolea, the
delegate sent frae Belgium tae
Canady an' the United States tae
plead for that stricken country.
Readin' his speech in the papers, wan couldnie but he thrilled
wi' the wey in which he described
the dastardly deeds perpetrated
in Belgium by the band o' cutthroats that stooped tae naethin'
in crime an' violence durin' their
march across his native country.
I wis parteecularly sorry I wis-
nie there, an' mare sae because
the worthy doctor happens tae be
a citizen o' Auld Reekie, an' a
teacher in its famous university.
Talkin' tae a freen who happened tae be there, he was very
indignant at a questyin askit by
wan o' the audience o' the speaker. I wis mare indignant when I
heard it, an' I got on tae my freen
micht an' main an' askit him
where his haun's were that he did-
nie get the wretch by the cuff o'
the neck an' throw him oot on the
street.
The questyin, he telt me, wis
haunded tae the chairman, an'
even he hadnie the sense tae gie
the answer that it deserved, but
askit Dr. Sarolea tae answer it for
himsel'.
"Hoo much does Dr. Sarolea
get oot o' this?" was the impudent an' cowardly questyin propounded tae the speaker. The
doctor, takin' the questyiner at
his richt vailue, answered in a
wey that utterly shamed the fellie an' at the same time added tae
the honor an' dignity o' himsel'.
The doctor said he got ever
sae much oot o' it in the fact that
he wis doin' the only thing he
could   (bein' unable tae   fecht)
Sandy Gets Efter the "Hoo Much Is
In It" Gang
tae help tae retrieve the fortunes
o' his brave countrymen, an' in
attemptin' tae alleviate the horrors an' hardships the population
were sufferin' frae. I wud hae
liked fine tae hae shook the doctor's haund at that period wi' my
richt fist, an' I wud hae liked tae
hae punched the questyiner's nose
wi' my left at the same time.
* * *
I dinnie think this fellie wis representative o' Canady an' Canadians, but there's nae true doots
aboot it but the speerit o' "Hoo
much is in it" is a thegither too
prevalent in the public life o'
Canady.
The "Hoo much is in it" speerit is responsible for the disastrous
condition the populashon o' British Columbia fin' themsels in at
the present time. Public life in
British Columby is stinkin' rotten
wi' graft, simply because the men
who are in office are actuated by
the wan compellin' thocht, "Hoo
much is in it?"
Never in the history o' ony
ceevilized country, state or province hae I come across sic a depraver] public life as that we hae
in British Columby ��� aye, I
micht say Canady an' no he very
faur owre the mark.
Did Rabbie Burns ever stop
his pen for a meenit owre a sonnet tae ask himsel "Hoo much
wis in it?
Did they brave fellies that
went doon the pit at Nanaimo a
week or so ago in an endeavor
tae rescue their comrades stop tae
ask "Hoo much is in it?" Did
oor brave lads at Neuve Chapelle
an' Langemarcke falter a foot in
their glorious chairge mid shot'an
shell tae ask "Hoo much wis in
it?" Not them, but when we
come tae the politeeshians an' politics o' British Columby���Ugh!
This "Hoo much is in it"
speerit has got tae be killed off
afore ony betterment o' condi-
deeshuns can be brocht aboot.
Wan parteecularly hopeful
tign is the entry o' the Ministerial
Union intae the field o' politics.
I hae jist been readin' the "Crisis
in B. C," an' though I thocht I
kent aboot maist o' the graft that
had been cairried on, yet I maun
confess I got a shock when read-
in' that pamflet. What are we
gaun tae dae aboot it?
The only answer is Get rid o'
the "Hoo much is in it" brigade
an' get men tae come forrit who
put honor afore wealth, an' who
can see "somethin' in it" in the
shape o' bein' honored an' respected as honest men whose am-
beeshun is tae serve their country's interests, so that she should
hae this black blot removed frae
her.
Yours through the heather,
SANDY MACPHERSON.
