Vancouver's Social Problems.
A Stirring Communication From
The Pen of Mrs. J. O. Perry
The Standard this week has the honor of publishing the first of a series of articles by Mrs. J. O.
Perry, whose quiet work in Ihe city, though not
widely known, has been of grcat lasting benefit to the
community. .Mrs. Perry has given freely of her time
and her resources in the great work of investigation
of those sad cases "which from time to time occur and
in aiding in the uplifting of friendless young women.
Mrs. Perry's records of her work form an astonishing story af one side of the life of the city. Of
course it will not be possible for her to make public
the various entries in her ledger; but her articles
based upon these cases should be of real value.
Readers will notice that Mrs. Perry spacks highly
of the work of the present mayor.   Wc are glad  to
publish this reference to his worship.   Though  The
Standard has criticised that official rather severely at j
limes, we.are sufficiently fair to allow friends of thc\
mayor to put forivard their side in these columns.
If as Carlyle says the strength of a man's character |
can be judged by the number of his enemies, then
Mayor Mc Heath is to be congratulated, not only as to
his strength computed by tliis standard, but also, by
contrast to the class distinction of his enemies���the
"Whiskey Ring."
The outspoken fearless castigation which the
"Standard" meted out to the principals in the terrible
Cowan tragedy proves tliat the "Standard" at least
does not cringe to the liquor interest. All the more
astonishing then, the adverse criticism of the Mayor,
under such dime novel headings as "Leads to murder
���and incendiarism," etc.
The various woman's organization-, in which the
writer holds office, have committee- for the study of
i*ivic problems and they, as regards the Mayor,' have
yet to record a single "black" on their ledger. I qualify
llie above statement by admitting that there was one
action we regretted, but we found, in looking up lhe
minutes, that the Mayor wits not especially responsible,
as the matter in question wa-- not decided by his casting vote.
The problems which have faced our city fur the
two years past, would have taxed the wisdom uf a
Solomon; yet what support has our Mayor received
from'the daily papers? Xot only has he heen refused
support, but it actually looks like concerted action in
a display of venomous ridicule. Arguments can be
met by convincing facts, but ridicule is the coward's
weapon with which our dailies are past master in fencing the truth.
Whenever the Mayor has accomplished some
amelioration of adverse social conditions it is merely
recorded as an item of news; but let the same take
place thousands of miles removed from Vancouver,
triple headlines are in order. Take a late incident. The
conditions in the cafes and hotels were past believing.
The citizens singly and in committee urged the Mayor
for the past year to take action, but relying on authorities that "all was well" deferred action until to insistent
���demands took the only course open to him, to prove
as to whether the public demand was based on an overdraw of imagination, . . . And now comes the
sequel, equally scandalous with the proven facts.
The press in reporting results forgot to commend
the Mayor any way adequately for the discovery of the
open defiance of law and the dastardly coralling of
young girls in these dens where the "preliminary steps"
are taken through the innocent tea pots to make up
the ninety per cent, of ruined girlhood, which a magistrate declared were the victims of this system. The
press, with only one exception, saw only the staged
farce of the disguised detectives. The daliies were
more concerned for the reputation of our city arising
from the "undignified" proceedings of the Mayor and
Hoard, than the horrible traffic of these dens in drag-
ing our young womanhood down into the undertow 1
of city life. Many of these comments are pasted inl
our ledger awaiting a day of reckoning. __
Since everything reflecting on the liquor traffic is;
taboo, and were it not for the early enforcement of;
prohibition, when the minimum will be reached in ad-!
verse social conditions, a prospect to launch a paper j
through which the public would be correctly informed
on the true and appaling state of affairs, would e'er!
this have materialized.
Thc Mayor has had the courage to take tlie in-!
itiative' in remedying abuses that have for years disgraced our city and which the press has studiously
avoided commending, but diligently* fought for a crevice through which to shoot its darts of ridicule.
The fact of criminals escaping through technicalities and defective laws, had become a public scandal,
the_Mayor and Police- Commissioners requested the
Crown Prosecutor to take stated cases up, personally,
with the Minister of Justice. The conditions arising
due to unsatisfactory licensing laws regarding clubs,
needs no comment. The amendment to the Pharmaceutical Act, lately enacted in order to restrict the
drug traffic, was due to the Mayor's activity.
The people of this city have more to thank Mayor
McBeath for titan they are permitted to know. The
citizens were not deceived by the hypocritical inconsistencies and "no surrender" howl raised by the "ring
critics" over the action of the Mayor, re the firemen's
demand. It was indeed, with "bated breath" the taxpayers waited for the word that proved the Mayor was
true to his trust and preferred to protect thc homes of
the citizens in preference to considering his "Amour
propre." Had he hesitated, the scribes would have
exhausted all the adjectives in Webster, in denouncing
his treachery in prefering self-respect to public interest. Had the decision depended upon the ratepayers' votes, the nays would have marked a dozen.
A Poet From The Railway
Mr. C. J. Dennis and
TIIE dangers ot the Mediterranean
route between Australia and
England have tndueed a large
number of Australians to pass
through Canada, who otherwise
might never have known this country, and have brought Australia into
closer sympathy with the Dominion
than ever before. Canadians also
have learned to appreciate-the An
zacs, and the Increasing trade between these two junior partners, of
the British Empire, as shown in tbe
record traffic of the Canadian Australasian service, is one of the bright
sides of this war. There are many
points of common touch���both are
vast countries anxious for greater
population and both are on the whole
still mainly agricultural. The comparative absence of cabled news from
Australia in Canadian papers Is, however, a handicap against tbe knowledge of each other's social problems
and progress, and Australian authors
are as little known in Canada as
Canadian writers are ln the Antipodes.
One poet of Australia Is. however,
waking headway  here and deserves

to be even better known���so vivid ai tion of the Canadian Pacific Railway

tbough "The Moods of Ginger Mick,"
wliich has made a tremendous hit In
Australia, has not yet been published
in this country, stray copies pass

treasured. Ginger Mick is a peddler
of rabbits who volunteers for the
front and dies like a hero at Galll-
poll. Dennis' "Baekblock Ballads,"
descriptive of the people of the Australian bush and tha settled country
districts are classics.
Dennis wrote "Doreen" In the bush
at Toolangl, Victoria, in a log cabin
wliich he built himself after he had
grown tired of being a Government
official and a newspaper editor.
Just as the early days of construe-
ation of poetry. At one of the rockiest periods of his career the poet
wired the publican "Send ten pounds,
going Broken Hill," to which his
father replied "Sending nothing, go
to Hell." In spite of this lack of
sympathy, Dennis became editor of
the "Adelaide Critic," which he left
to establish the "Gadfly," a saucy
paper on the lines of New York
"Life." This paper was once accused
by a correspondent of sectarian bias.
Dennis replied that the paper was
controlled by an Anglican, a Roman
Catholic, a Weslyan Methodist and an
Atheist, and gave It as his opinion
that the Atheist was "the most re.
llglous man of the lot."
As it is the Mayor's action has possibly deprived a few
"bond holders" of a Neronian pleasure.
Featuring one subject at a time, a series of short
write-ups on conditions and methods adopted to fight
same will be forthcoming. Our ledger can be depended upon to give only facts corroborated by reliable
witnesses and police records, lt is time that the forces
organized for decent citizenship should probe this
"Down the Mayor conspiracy."

CHE new sociology is somewhat of a misnomer as
it's principles in many of the Suites and in our
eastern provinces have already passed the experimental
stage. It is new, however, as regards its adoption in
British Columbia. Owing to space limitation I cannot, in this paper treat all the problems which the new
sociology covers, but'will confine my remarks to the
methods of penalization as in vogue in our province.
After seven years of study and in close personal
touch with conditions 1 feel justified in claiming your
confidence and credence for the matters herein
The underlying principles of the new sociology
are���prevention, scientific examination, and treatment
of the physical defects of the criminal with a view to
obtaining a knowledge of his responsibility and chances
for rehabilitation; and thirdly, vocational training, so
that on leaving prison, he or she may become a self-
supporting, self-respecting citizen.
Finding that the old methods of penalizing���of
simply incarcerating in penitentiaries, subject to the
same uniform, same diet, same discipline, no gradation :
the only difference between the simple offences and
the serious being the duration of serving time���had
utterly failed so far as redemptive corrective results
were concerned; statistics prove that the majority of
criminals upon release entered again upon their criminal career with an added incentive to take revenge
upon society.
The New York State Commission, International in
scope, after a series of investigations, stated that two-
thirds of the inmates of prisons should have been sent
to hospitals.
Dr. Wendell Holmes declares that we should consider all sinners as patients. Whilst qualifying' such a
sweeping statement, the new sociology demands that
not alone evidence of guilt be forthcoming, but an investigation of the culprit's responsibility for liis acl-.
in many cases it was found mental deficiency or some
physical defect which a surgeon's knife might have
removed, weakened the man or woman's will power
and thus the power of resistance. The difference between the old methods and the new sociology : the form
er incarcerates without redemptive measures with a
-result-r-increase of criminal classes. The new sociology adopts the more humane policy in treating scientifically physical defects wilh a view to produc .i
sound mind through a sound body, thus restoring
normal mentality and will power.
Let us see in how far we have adopted or neglected
the principles of the new sociology in our penalizing
methods. W'e would naturally suppose in our comparatively young province, our legislators would have
considered it good business to have investigated and
incorporated into our system the advanced methods
pertaining to the older sister provinces in the east
of us.
We have three courts with jurisdiction over the
criminal code;���the Juvenile court is the nearest attempt made in British Columbia to introduce and further the new sociology, that of prevention. 1 say attempt advisedly, for this court whilst doing good work
is not fulfilling its full mission, lt is restricted and
hampered because of its limited jurisdiction extending
only over children under 16 years of age.
This is the age fathers and mothers note with alarm
tliat Willie and Mary begin to show a certain restlessness when the boy or girl is considered independent
and is impatient or parental authority when the reason lies not in the perversity of the child but in the
causes physical and psychological not understood by
the parent.
It was the number of girls in grave danger that
decided my resignation on thc Juvenile Court Committee, in order to try to stem the steady stream of
young girls being drawn into the undertow of city
life. The 144 girls on my ledger could have passed
into the court lessening the danger to their young womanhood and eliminating lhe element of danger to our
young men found in the lure of thc streets. Therefore
if you are looking for constructive work get busy on
this and demand that the age of jurisdiction be raised
to at least 18 vears. In some states it has been raised
to 21.
Thc magistrates or lower court. A noted historian
has said "that when a people begin to doubt or lose
faith in their judiciary, the rumblings of a revolution
l- let far off." I would not insinuate that we are approaching stu-h a cn-i- m British Columbia, but late
experience proves one of two things���either the bandage has fallen from the eyes ���{ justice or that our laws
have been so formed so as to defeat instead oi further*
ing same.
The legal mind may have a certain contempt for
the ordinary lay intelligence in its failure to appreciate
the fine intricacies of the law, resulting in the following instances of the most flagrant miscarriage of justice:
A Chinaman in the lower court was condemned to
two years imprisonment for debauching three young
white girls. The evidence was of a particularly deplorable nature. He received a sentence of two years,
and our women's organizations were disappointed considering that twenty years and the lash would more
equably have met the case. However, the defending
lawyer appealed the case to the Higher Court. Again
our women took heart, considering that the calibre of
the High Court to be superior to that of the Lower
We confidently expected a revision of judgment,
that justice would at last prevail and twentv vears sentence would be forthcoming.
fmagine our dismay when this human vulture was
not even fined, but went forth a free man. The legal
genius being able to prove to the judge's satisfaction
that because the code did not especially specify procuring young- girls for his own use. but had he procured them for someone else, then only could he have
been held liable.
Another case���a woman confessed her guilt fi r
the stealing of a diamond ring. Notwithstanding her
confession the conn found her not guilty, on the
ground that -he got i��� through the window and did
not break open the door. etc.. therefore it was not
house-breaking, (another defect in the law).
Still another���a man on trial for selling liquor to
an Indian confessed his guilt. Tlie Indian also giving
corroborative evidence. The judge Was about to pronounce sentence when the defending lawyer drew his
attention to the indictment paper, pointing out lhat the
word Indian had been omitted therefrom. "Well." the
judge replied, "he says he i- an Indian, mv -en^es tell
me he is an Indian, my eyes confirm the fact, but officially I do not know lie is an Indian, therefore 1 dismiss the case."
Surely in the above instances could have been found
sufficient matter to have justified the exercising of discretionary powers, and in view of the confession of
guilt, could have considered faulty wording of acts and
onimission in indictment paper- as "scraps of paper."
That to a too close adherence to the letter of the law,
rather than to its spirit is due such an outrageous
anamoly persistetiilj declaring to the King or Crown
'1 am guilty" and the bench finding not guilty. Surely
"Bumbles" is right when he says, "ihe law is ban bass."
A very grave .situation faces us and not ihe least
of our problems: if the efforts of our police in maintaining law and order are thus frustrated bv the very
tribunals which should prove to be their main support.
So scandalous did the situation become tliat tlie prosecuting attorney was sent h*. the Mayor and commissioners to Ottawa to interview the Minister of Justice.
I succeeded through the efforts of the Chief and
Mayor, that the case of the Chinaman already mentioned was added to the list, and as a result confidently
look tor an amendment. J personally questioned
judges, one in the Magistrates' and in the High
Court as to whose duty ii was, when such travesties of
justice occur to seek the amendment of defective laws.
They both repudiated any responsibility. Thev "were
there to administer the law a- thej  found it."
Will onr citizens longer permil such an intolerable
suite of affairs.   Let lis persist in demanding thai the
responsibility be placed, so thai  in  future no sn.-'
farcical caricature of justice will disgrace our courts

Cyclist Joe Mclvor Tells Interesting
Story of Long Cycle Trip in
the Interior
Leaving the city limits at eleven
o'clock on the first day of June 1 was
soon skimming along that splendidly
paved Kingsway, towards Westminster. As the autos passed me I felt
very much tempted, like in the hey
day of my youth, to clip in behind
some of them, and take a pace. The
knowledge that I had some four hundred miles of road before me deterred
me from running myself out on the
first day. Westminster was reached
in good time, and passing through,
crossed the Fraser River and so on
towards Langley Prairie. The goml
roads was certainly a very agreeable
surprise to me. Half way to Chilliwack I dismounted at a country store
and had a, light lunch. Mounting
again I passed through Abbotsford
and reached Chilliwack at seven
o'clock. This was not so had considering that I had done no cycling for
over six years. The roads between
Vancouverfand Chilliwack arc
good, and  that  more  cyclists  do   mi
thing. The cabin evidently belonged
to the blacksmith on one of the road
gangs, and he had not long left as
there was a bed with blankets, also
a bannock and tea and sugar. 1 feel
sure he was a married man as the bannock was like, and tasted like the work
of an amateur. 1 took the liberty of
making tea and eating sonie of the
bannock, then slipping into my sleeping suit slept the sleep of the weary.
Next morning I was up early, lixed
the wheel, had tea and some more
bannock, left a note of thanks for the
use of the cabin, also some coin for
the tea, etc. I reached Lillooett between ten and eleven. My route did
not lie through the latter place, but I
went live miles out to satisfy the inner
man. Leaving Lillooett I made Clinton, on the Cariboo road. There were
some awful hills On this' road and
some fine views of the Fraser River.
About four o'clock that afternoon it
rained, and I came across two men in
a freight car belonging to the P. G. E.
I was invited in out of the wet, and
as 1 felt played out by the heavy road
reallylwas ��"^ *���� s'at' t0 c��mply. One nf
the men put down a pot of coffee and

surprised me.
Whilst strolling around thc town
after supper an auto driver advised
me to take the C. N. R, train out
that evening as the road to Hope was
awful. T did not like the idea of
trains when I had started out to cycle,
so I discarded his advice and stayed
overnight at Chilliwack. About eight
o'clock the next morning T set out
for Hope. It was plain sailing to
Rosedale, but after that I thought I
must have lost my- way, as the road
narrowed, was full of ruts, and, in the
hollows formed by the hills great
pools of water lay. Coming down the
first hill I tried to ride through a pool,
but it was deeper than I imagined so
I got stuck in the middle and like
Mahommed's coffin hung twixt heaven
and earth. As T fell 1 tried to clear
the water, but all in vain. There was
a lot of bracken about so 1 used it to
wipe some of the water and mud from

'The men were section hands on th
line and hailed from Sweden. Feeling
greatly refreshed by the rest and refreshments, a hint (if paying for same
was indignantly rejected. 1 thanked
the men for their kindness and started
off again. I did not go far before I
encountered a hill which 1 took over
two hours to climb, pushing my wheel
all the time. At the top there was a
large ranch, and as it now .commenced
to rain again decided I had travelled
far enough that day as I felt really
tired. This, my fourth day out was
when I felt the most used up, after
that I seemed to improve all the time.
I reached the ranch in time for supper,
which was all that one could desire.
After supper my hosts went into the
parloj: and the farmer's wife and another ktdy entertained us to niusig on
a player piano. That evening it rained, and snowed at the ranch, which
must be quite a bit above two thous-
my clothes. The roads were bad until |and fee-' above sea *eve1' Tne roa*ls
I came to a little place St. Elmo. At
this place the mountains tower right
up, and it is a sight worth seeing to
follow the course of a mountain torrent which emerges from a bank of
,snow away up the mountain top. There
is a little store where one can get a
light lunch at a reasonable cost. After
St. Elmo the roads improved and Hope
was reached about two thirty, or six
and a half hours for 35 miles. Of this
distance I walked quite a lot, but later
on in the year the roads may be better. I also found that my gear was
too  high,   over  80.    I   found   out

Otherwise  everything   went  welt.

trip of about 120 miles, and is a trip
well worth taking. The next day I
got a train about one o'clock, and
went as advised to Lytton, reaching
there at three fifteen. This ride took
me over fifty miles. Starting from
Lytton I at once made tracks for
LUlcoett, 47 miles distant. The country was hilly, but the road surface
good, with the exception of a few hills
which were so cut up I had to walk
down. About 35 miles out, going
down a hill where the road was cut
right from the face of a cliff I ran
across some sharp stones and experienced the first puncture, of the
trip. Tllis vvas about eight in the evening, and the contour of the country
made it look unlikely that there would
he any ranches for miles. 1 thought
it would be a night under the stars
for me���but walking on a little espied
a little pipe with flowing water, and
looking further discovered a little
cabin. There was a smith's fire outside, also a cook stove, but, alas, the
cabin was empty and padlocked. For
a moment 1 was beaten, but managed
to   get   inside   without   breaking   any-
tttres, and a blow-out, which was tbe
record. This was six and a half days
for a distance of 400 miles, fifty of
which were done by train, but my
actual travelling and riding time each
day was as follows:
First day���70 miles; 8 hours; Vancouver to Chilliwack.
Second day���48 miles; 8 1-2 hours;
Chilliwack to Yale.
Third day���35 miles; 4 3-4 hours:
Yale to 35 miles on Lillooett  Road.
Fourth day���43 miles; 10 hours; 13
miles from Lillooet to 30 beyond Car-
Fifth day���61 miles; 10 hours; Car-
sons  to 70  Mile  House.
Sixth day���64 miles; 10 hours; 70
Mile House to 134 Mile House.
Seventh day���45 miles; 6 hours; 134
Mile House to Soda Creek.
If I had to make the journey over
again I would have a gear around 64.
which would make the hill climbing
easier. The journey was quite a
scenic route in its way, and it is quite
possible I may ride back this fall. One
of my pedals gave me quite a lot of
trouble, and one of my toe clips wore
out  on  accoutn  of  the  ha��d  work  I
Several thousand officers and* employees of the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company enlisted for active military duty with the Canadian
Expeditionary Forces, and the majority of them are now in Europe
bravely buttling for Canada and the Empire.

Milady's Gossip
Beautiful English Hay is once more
at the zenith of ils popularity as a
resort for the citizens of and visitor,
to Vancouver, as well as all the happ)
children fried from school for thei
holidays; and each afternoon sees it
almost     approaching     the     crowded
movement and merriment of a fair.
Indeed, it is a sight to cheer any
heart, tbe brilliant sparkle of stin-
fblne on land and water. Tbe moving
kalideoscopic mass of humanity, in
brightly colored bathing garments,
and bobbing beads in scarlet, green,
blue  or  yellow  caps.
Where tbe world over could be
found more lovely settings than those
which uiir most popular beach can
���how? with its wealth of greenery,!
and stately snow capped mountains.*
If���how that paltry little word "if"
will crop up everywhere, and what a
change of meaning its two letters can
hold���if only the sand was real sand,
and it only the water was nice clear,
clean, water,���it would surely be one
of the most perfect bathing beaches
of which any city could boast.
1, however, have recollections of
sands pure gold in color, soft, dry.
warm, aud oh! so clean, washed twice
daily by the rolling waves of an ebbing and flowing tide, aud these recollections will not let me regard Knglish
Bay with the loving eye of the bather;
but, even so, as a lover of scenery
and a student of human nature, 1 can
while away many an hour most profitably at the  Bay.
From the point of view of a bather,
too, I feel that I must be one of those
wretched exceptions whose only use
is that they go to prove a rule, for
, all ages, all sorts, and all sizes of
people arc to bc found desportiiu
themselves  in  the  water  or  sunning
themselves on the beach.
* * *
During the last week I have haunted
tlic Ray in the vain effort of finding
some excuse for that good lady visitor
of highly respectable family from the
East, who wrote in such scathing
terms to one of our leading newspapers regarding tbe immodest) and
indecency of costumes displace !
there, but so far I have failed in discover it.
I have watched tbe mothers with
families, often women of ample pr i-
portlons, arrayed in their sensibl ���
close-fitting wool jersey costumes,
with legs���or, perhaps, propriety le-
mands that I should say "nether
limbs"���encased in stockings, esc r-
ing their little brood into the water. A
little later 1 see the mother out or,
the sands, drying the face and shoulders of her youngest wee mite, wrap
ping a cloak about it for warmth, ami
settling it comfortably in the sun, regardless of the fact that the wet gown
clinging  closely   reveals  tbe   line-   oi
her figure, or that between stocking
top and bathing dress a wide gap has
made its appearance, blissfully unconscious of everything but the welfare of her child.
Surely then, in this picture of maternal care, and companionship in a
health giving recreation, given with
absolute un-selfconsciousness. i- no
place to look for immodesty.
So f turned my attention to the
younger generation for signs of that
blatant immodesty so shocking to a
visitor, but once more I was forced to
the conclusion tllat, either somewhere
in myself must be a big streak of depravity, or else the good lady was
possessed of that uncomfortable sort
of vision, that sees evil where none is
For to me the girls arc delightful,
the grace of well formed limb, the
bright eyes, sun kissed faces, necks
and arms, straying curls beneath
brightly colored caps, or flowing locks
drying in the sun.
Surely then, I find nothing here but
a sensation of youth, with all the spontaneous joyousness and lightness of
heart that youth brings, particularly
when freed for the nonce from the
shackles of conventional garb.
Everywhere I find something that
makes its appeal to my artistic
(sense,���the grace of a pose, the dimple
of an elbow, the soft curve of a throat,
the dazzling purity of a complexion.���
all are there, and I delight in them all,
and,���I am not a man.
* * *
One thing there is at the Hay, that
I truly say, in conjunction with many
another woman, does cause me distress, and that is the forcible immersion in thc water of young children
by their parents. It is, of course, intended beneficially, but mothers and
fathers little know what harm they
(are doing to the nervous systems of
their children by these enforced ducklings.
It is natural to many children to
love the water and feel no fear of it.
i or others, differently constituted temperamentally, it undoubtedly holds
many terrors.
ll is not only the case with children.
there are many grown-ups who have
never been able to tj'uite overcome a
fear of lhe sea. Older people can. of
course, reason for themselves and so
di-sipate much of the terror, hut
young children can only feel without
knowing  the   reason  why,  aud   it's  a
most cruel and reprehensible thing t ���
play upon tbofe fear-.
The harm done t" a child- nervous
system in one afternoon .vill counteract a month's good which m i> I...
rind   from   the  bathing.
I have frequently seen iiu!, [oti
of anything from two to six years
old taken in screaming, trembling, almost paralysed with fear, to the injury of themselves ami the distress ol
the onlooker's. I have watched the
wee things sit for an hour afterwards
on the sand white and shivering, the
little bodies run with intermittent
sobs, quite unable to recover from
the shock, ami I know how later thej
will wake in the nighl terrified and
crying, the horror of it -till working
in the little brain.
So many parents are cruel llmpl)
because they will not grasp the fact
that children are bom with temperaments. A little careful thought and
study can trace most of their strongly
rooted likes, dislikes and fears back
to their origin���generally heredity���
often no further back than ourselves.
With understanding, sympathy and
gentleness the fears will often die a
natural death in time, but the results
upon the mind of a highly strung
nervous child may be very disastrous
when force is used.
When a child has a natural fear of
the sea, leave it to use its own initiative. Children are naturally curious and like to find out for themselves,
so eventually one toe goes in. then
up to the ankles and so on. as the little
one realizes that the monster it so
feared does it no harm, hut is rather
fun than otherwise.
In due course it will want to do the
same as its playmates, aud eventually
all fear of the water will be forgotten,
and the feelings of other mothers at
the Bay will not bc harassed by a proceeding in which they are unable to
also insists that his pupils, t., the
youngest, memorise.all their work,
even the longest and most difficult
pieces, thill adding greatly to the ef-
fi   '
The two vocal pupils were Mr-. J.
Austin-Elliott, contralto, -and Mr-.
Je ie l.oi.gfield. mezzo-soprano. Both
ladie- sang wilh much charm and
ta-ie   and   were   well   n   eil e ���.
Mr. Paccy gave two tongs, one of
Frances Vllittsen's dramatic pieces,

It ha- frequently happened that valuable trade secrets have been lost beyond recovery. For instance, the best
watch oil, it appears, cannot be obtained today, because the secret process
of mixing it perished wilh the inventor. 11 is said that the last ipiart
ol this famous fluid was sold for $200,
and that wa- 35 year.- ago. Since then
every effort bas been made to analyze
the product in an attempt to reproduce
the oil. but without success. The man
who made it and win. alone knew its
composition died, and. it further appears, not even his name or the place
"i his burial is known, lie never revealed to anyone the details o| his
process, aud it was not until after his
death that lhe real value of the oil
was appreciated.

Do you always use your telephone?
Travelling, even a short distance, takes time.
Your telephone saves minutes and saves energy. It matters not whether the party you
want is one mile or a hundred miles away,
the telephone takes you in a moment.
Don't travel miles to do business, speak
for a few minutes by telephone. Use the
telephone instead of writing; written communications lack the directness of conversation.
The lirst and largest stores
of the big American cities are showing several novel ideas these days. All
.-oris of fanciful ideas iu bead necklaces are being worn, in fact they say
there that a woman is known by her
heads, the more curiously wrought,
the more barbaric in design the better,���at the same both coloring am!
design reach the acme of artistic
workmanship, and are often very
beautiful. They certainly form 'a very
pretty finish to a summer gown, when
blending in  tone  with hat or belt.
Another craze, now that America
has entered upon her share of the war.
is the knitting bag. which varies in
size from the small and dainty to a
regular miniature grip. Tlie materials used in making are very varied.
brocades, silks, satins, chintz. Inn the
latest is basket or red work w;th a
painted design of birds, butterflies or
Mowers to match in color the silk and
ribbons used for drawing up.
Vet again there is a new idea for
the bride of earlier months, and lhat
is to use a piece of the bridal train,
chiffon and orange blossoms, as a
j setting for a photograph of the happy
and new made man and wife. 'I'he
wide mount for a large photograph
. covered with the brocade, or what-
ver the material of the train might
be, and a narrow frame of gilt or enamel and gold as fancy directs. A
twisted rope of chiffon from the marriage gown and some of the orange
blossoms���imitation ones of course���
are used at the top of the frame
times for the purpose of hangiii
sometimes merely  for ornament.
Last but not least as regards the
quality of attractiveness is a novelty
gift for the little ones, in the form of
a handbag, hair ribbon and sash all
to match, and made of soft satin with
hemstitched edges. The bag is the
fluffiest little drawn up affair, with
perhaps just a wee bunch of baby
satin roses for ornamentation. What
more dainty or novel present could
arrive for the sniall lady of fashion
from godmother, grandma, or auntie,
and so useful, too.
Varied program of Best  Composers
Rendered by Students
The pupils of Mr. J. D. A. Tripp
gave a recital on Tuesday evening
last at the First Congregational
Church, and were assisted by Mr. J.
E. Paccy, baritone, and Mr. Douglas
Fetherston, violinist. The church was
filled to its utmost capacity and the
audience was keenly appreciative to
the very last item on the programme
in spite of the lateness of the hour ere
it drew to a close.
ln connection with Mr. Tripp's students one always expects quality, and
this week's recital gave ample evidence of it. for each pupil without exception, was a soloist of high order.
There were, of course, individual differences in quality of touch, power
and interpretation���but with regard
to sound technique, rythmical phrasing, and facile clear execution, each
one gave ample evidence of a sound
method  of    instruction.     Mr.    Tripp

Text. "After this manner, pray ye:
HEAVEN'." Matthew VI. 9.
These words of Jesus contain our
highest conception of God. As the
fact of God, revealed as Creator, is the
Genesis, even so, that of God's Fatherhood is the Revelation of our Christian Faith, lt is the full and final
word of God as He would be known
of men. To assent to the iirst fact
is to understand the evolution of the
world from chaos to order and harmony. But to accept the second is
to apprehend "the NEW JERUSALEM, coming down from God out of
heaven, prepared as a bride adorned
for her husband." The UTOPIA, we
are longing and laboring fur, cannot
be realized until we master the lesson
. .f Christ and make it the mission of
our life's proclamation and practice.
The Fatherhood of God furnishes the
sure cure for all ills, social, national,
and world-wide. Christians have faith
in it; the workingman's hope rests
upon it; and the capitalists should
give consideration to it.
* * *
Arising from the idea of God's
Fatherhood are several suggestions.
First, it suggests A COMMON NATURE between THE FATHER and
HIS CHILDREN. "Like father, like
son." Scripture states this fact, spiritually related, when it records that
"we are made in God's image and
after His likeness." That is to say,
as God is a spirit, we are essentially
spiritual in our make-up, with a mind
to think, a heart to feel, and a will
to act. As with God's, so with us in
a finite way; we are capable of great
thoughts, generous feelings, add good
deeds. As God delights in good, we
in our sanest and spiritual moods admire and approve of that which is
good; and as God is Good in Himself,
there is good also in us, His children.
* * *
Many challenge this statement and
claim that there is no good in man.
the Father's love, worthy of consideration.    First,  His love toward us is
unreserved.   Earthly    parents   sometime show reservation in their affection for tlieir children. But, with God,
all  alike  have an  equal  place.  "N'ot
father, nor mother loved you, as God
has loved you," said Longfellow. God
loves thc good and thc bad,���the good
for their goodness,  the bad  in  spite
of their badness.    What we are does
not alter His affection for us, unless
that our goodness gladdens His heart
and  our  badness  grieves  His  spirit.
* * *
Again,   God's   love   is   unchanging.
Human love is different.    It may be
likened to a shadow, quickly changed
by the slightest turn of our thought.
But with the "Father of Lights, tliere
is no variableness, neither is there a
shadow of turning." God's love is not
limited   to  time,   space,  and   circumstances; it is from everlasting to everlasting ,
Sunday School Lesson
"Earthly friends may  fail  or leave
One   day  soothe,   the   next   day
grieve  us;
But this Friend will ne'er deceive
O, how He loves!"
* * *
The third characteristic of God's
love is His untiring activity. The
Father's love manifests itself in His
restlessness on our behalf. This
Divine restlessness is seen in His
never-failing care for us, His children. His providence purveys all our
needs. In answer to our prayer for
"daily bread' He supplies our temporal
wants. For, out of the fulness of His
heart, He bestows upon us the blessings of life,���light, air, food, warmth,
raiment, exercise, and rest,���all these
streams of mercy find there source in
the Father's heart. Man need never
want, if he would but trust in God
and do the right.
* * *
God meets our spiritual needs as
well. We all know the needs of the
body; but, not al! realize the requirements of the soul. Herein is the seat
of all spiritual troubles. It explains
WHY there are so few conversions
to God in the world, and so many
stunted souls in the Christian Church
today. As with the physical, so for
the spiritual; the soul's needs are the
light of the Holy Spirit, the atmosphere of Prayer, the 'Bread of Life,'
the warmth of God's Love, the raiment of Christ's righteousness, the
exercise of Christian worship, and the
rest of Divine care., All these, God
can supply and does to those, who
know how to ask and act.
* * *
The Fatherhood of God suggests
HIM. These obligations are threefold; and they are stated in the first
July 29, '17
(Lesson   Passage:  Isaiah  55,  1-13).
Golden   Text���Seek   ye   the   Lord
while He may be found, call ye upon
Him while He is near. Isaiah 55, 6.
Lesson   Plan.     I.  Thc   Divine   Invitation.     11.     Thc   Divine   Imperative.
111. The Divine Inference.
The objects of God's invitation are the
Jews in Babylonian exile.   Thc probable date of the message is about 5.18
B.C.,���the  year  in  which  Cyrus,  thc
Great,    king    of    Persia,    conquered
Babylon; and, following his customary
policy,   he   proclaimed   his   royal   decree,   permitting   the   return   of   the
Hebrew   exiles     to   their   own    land,
Judah.  Isaiah,  the prophet considers
Cyrus's proclamation as prompted of
God and counsels the people of Jehovah to return to their native clime and
country.   The nature of God's invitation is a call to spiritual life and service.    Babylon was a great centre of
heathenism and commercialism,    Religiously, it was very active in the in-
trest of its heathen gods; and, commercially,  it   was  the   centre  of  the
world's trade.   So that the Jewish people were in grave danger of catching
the   contagion   of   Babylonian   inllti-
ence.    Indeed,  there  was  a  tendency
with many of them to forget the Temple of their God; while some were already led to  adopt those  methods of
commercialism, which have been such
a  marked  characteristic  of  the  race
ever   since.     To    meet- the   danger
Isaiah speaks in thc name of God, and
delivers   his' two-fold   call,   viz.,   that,
Jehovah's  people  should  depart  from
the home of heathenism for the House
of true worship; also that they should
discard their acquired  habits of commercialism for the higher and spiritual
traffic.    Not  to   be  princes  of  merchants, but to be prophets and priests
of God were they born.    Prosperous,
they may become in the land of their
exile; but they must not forget  that
tliere is that which money can never
purchase, viz., the 'waters' of God's
salvation, the 'wine' of Divine joy, and
the 'milk' of God's Word. To hunger
for  God's  Word   were  they  created;
and to satisfy that hunger is to grow
spiritually.    God's invitation is, therefore,  imperative.
God. Because the blessedness of the
obedient are. manifold, viz., "Thy soul
shall live,''���that is, they shall enjoy
a richer and  fuller life; also, "Thou
shalt call a nation that thou knowest
not; and a nation that knew not thee,
shall run   unto   thee,"���that   is,   thc
obedient   shall   bc   influential.    It   is
ever thus.   The man, who enters into
God's fellowship, enjoys a deeper and
fuller life.    Therc is the well, which
the  world  knows  not   of,   but   from
wliich he draws his strength and solace when he is weak and weary and
lonesome.    Yea, he, himself, is a living well  unto  others  who are  weary
and heavy-laden. Second, look to God
while He   may be   found.    The emphasis is two-fold,���(1). Therc is life
for a look.   It is the same lesson that
Israel learned in the wilderness, when
they were stricken and smitten of God
for their disobedience and found salvation  in  their  look of faith  and penitence;    (2).    "While    He    may    be
found." God will not always be found,
not that He  will  weary of  showing
His  favor  and  forbearance;   but  because, through continued disobedience,
the people's conscience will warp and
become seared.   Third, leave Babylon
and its ways behind.    The people of
God must go back, even at great sacrifices, to the land of their fathers; and
they  have  the  divine assurance  that
tlieir  highest  hopes  will  be   fulfilled.
If they doubt His word, let them note
God's inferences.

kingdom come," "Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven." As children of God, we are morally held to
honor the name of our Father, by
deed of life as by word of mouth, in
our homes as in the Church, at our
workshops and anywhere. Again, as
children, the prayer of our lips, "Thy
kingdom come, Thy will be done,"
should be the purpose of our life. Our
duty is clearly to seek first the
kingdom of God and His righteousness within our hearts as in the hearts
of our fellows.
But the doctrine of TOTAL DEPRAVITY is now out-of-date. It
does not tally with evolution and experience. Everywhere there are evidences that goodness is not above
man's capacity. Finer thoughts and
nobler sentiments cannot be found
than what are contained in the pages
of the World's Classics. Records of
heroism1, extraordinary and ordinary,
fill the annals of the world's history.
Everywhere experience tells forth that
humanity is not so bad as to be without an atom of good. It was a sinful
woman, who spent her all on spikenard that she might do honor to
Christ. It was an unscrupulous tax
gatherer, Zaccheus, who said in effect,
All that I have robbed and wrung out
of the innocent, I will restore four
fold. Thus in the deepest depth of
sin-stained souls, there is the vein of
gold, if we but know how to mine it
for God.

by the tempter,
Feelings lie buried that grace can

(vv.3-7). The Divine imperative is
three-fold. LISTEN, LOOK, LEAVE
First, listen diligently to God's call.
God's people may have a number of
plausible reasons why they should devote themselves to worldly and material interests; but to these there is
no answer save the call of God's own
voice to obedience and surrender.
Worldly success and comfort can
never take the place of obedience to

TURF'S GOD. (1). The expanse between the heavens and the earth measure in a finite way the infinite difference between God's reckonings and
His people's. Earth's measure is sordid and barren; that of Heaven is
spiritual and full. (2). The fertilizing
influence of the gentle fall of rain and
snow is a symbol of God's Word. The
clock-like precision of Nature's unfolding tells us that, in the fulness of
His time, God will fulfill His promises. (3). The gladsome praise of
towering hills and shady dales is Nature's utterance that her God shall
lead His people forth with joy and
peace. Nature's song is their surety

Lesson Applied. 1. To the Nation.
Spirituality, not material resources or
military strength, constitutes national
greatness. A country's BOOM is not
always that country's BOON. 2. To
individuals. Expenditure of all energies in attaining the mere material
comforts and possessions will never
satisfy the  soul-cravings.
Accompanied by many leading citizens of thc Lower Mainland, Dr. Adams and Dr. MacCallum, members of
the Scientific and Technical Advisory
Council of Canada, visited the British Columbia Distillery tllis week and
explored the great half million dollar
plant there. Among the visitors were
Dr. Wesbrook, of the University;
Mayor Gray, of New Westminster:
Mr. Dawson aud Mr. Forrester, of

invited to sample the product of the

Of particular educational value was
the visit to the Distillery. The object of the Advisory Council is, of
course, to investigate all industries in
the country, with the paramount object in view of reducing waste and
utilizing to the full waste products.
Conditions at the Distillery were
found to be such that waste by-products were being utilized to the fullest
extent possible and the fullest efficiency was being secured from the
It was pointed out that the Gooder-
ham and Worts distillery is now engaged turning out for the Imperial
Government vast quantities of acetone, a property only recently brought
forward, used in the manufacture of
cordite. It was only the other day
that it was found that acetone could
be extracted from com maize, and
sonic idea of the alertness of the Imperial Government may be found from
the fact that today Canadian distilleries are turning out great quantities
of tllis very valuable munition of
war. The scientific men who visited
the distillery told of the great extension during recent years of the use
of alcohol industrially .and predicted
that after the war the consumption of
alcohol throughout the world for
strictly industrial purposes would be
increased nianyfold.
Members of the council stated, upon
leaving the distillery that it was the
most modern plant of its kind so far
visited in Canada.

Again, the Fatherhood of God suggests GOD'S AFFECTION toward
His children. Who can tire of, or
drain, the blessed thought that the
Heavenly Father loves us? It is the
ever-flowing fountain, that beautifies
the garden of the soul and satisfies the
thirst of the never-dying spirit.

finding of the Heavenly Father, who
is Love. It was to this effect an

said the old French general to his

such in need and in danger." To possess this character is a dignity of itself, commanding the instinctive
hmage of every generous mind, and
those who will not bow to titular
rank, will yet do homage to thc Gentleman. ' His qualities depend not

The day before his fateful journey, as
he was walking into his office, he
saw one of his chaffeurs standing by.

Go down to thc North Vancouver
ferry wharf some morning at live
o'clock and you will find among the
men at work there at that hour a tal,
broad, blue eyed and red haired mail
of fifty years. That man is Captain
Brewster, owner and captain of the
good little ship "The New Delta." He
is the most modest man on the waterfront, is said to be the most honest
man and is surely beloved by most
people who come in contact with him.
If there is any freight to go aboard
of "The New Delta," the captain is
not afraid to take his end of it. He
can rustic a hand truck with the hest
of his employees. He doesn't object
to hard work.
When thc elections loomed in sight,
people said, "if Brewster is put into
power the 'Cap' will get s.inie soft
snap at Victoria." Brewster was elected and became Prime Minister of British Columbia. His big brother,'the
'Cap," is still making regular runs
on "The New Delta" and personally
handling freight when the need arises.
The "Cap" is not the kind of man
who looks for soft jobs. N'o family
triumphs disturb him or inflate him.
Captain Brewster was responsible
lor encouraging his younger brother
llarley to come to British 'Columbia
from the east. Probably the captain
grubstaked the young fellow in those
early days. Anyway the captain vvas
getting on fairly well and the chances
are that the now premier was not verr
well off when he lauded upon these
tranquile shores. Captain Brewster
had sailed on the broad Atlantic, had
been to sea with sonic rough crews.
When he was a mere boy he sailed
out of Halifax with a British captain
who. when his wrath was aroused,
would lay about with a beloying pin
and oftimes the scuppers went red
with the blood of deckhands who
didn't move fast enough when the old
dog gave an order. That particular
chap believed that Englishmen were
the only sailors and he fought a man
once who held out that Blue Noses
were better men before the mast than
the  English.
Though in those early days Captain
Brewster saw some exciting times, tor
day he is quite content to" ply within
the waters of Burrard Inlet exclusively. His boats offer a splendid daily
service from Vancouver to loco antl
way points. If anyone really wishes
to see Vancouver, they should take a
trip with Captain Brewster up the Inlet. From the deck of "The New
Delta" you can get a splendid view of
the waterfront of the city and a good
idea of our industrial development.
There is no more beautiful journey
to bc had than the run up the Inlet.
And it can be done in two hours at
a very small cost, with the Captain
himself at the wheel.
On a moonlight night this journey
is particularly attractive. And, by the
way, it might bc pointed out that on
the evening of July 31 thc Captain
will run a moonlight excursion up
the Inlet, including a run to Indian
River, stopping at loco and Port
Moody. Thc "Number Five" leaves
the ferry wharf at 6:30 and anyone
who wishes to test the veracity of
our statements regarding the beauties of thc trip should go along. There
will be lmisic and dancing. When
Captain Brewster leaves the wheel-
house, he turns things over to Captain
MacLean, a man who first saw the
sea some hours after his birth in a
Nova Scotia home. Captain MacLean
is an equally popular gentleman
among the scores of patrons of the
Brewster line and has many friends
along the waterfront.

and increased the cost of canned vegetables; so much so, in fact, as to
make some lines almost prohibitive
to the average family.
There is little reason, however, for
any Canadian family not providing
a sufficient supply for next winter.
Home canning of vegetables is a simple matter; when put up in ordinary
glass jars, securely sealed, they are
equal if not superior to the factory
brand, aud the cost is much lower.
Peas, string beans, sweet corn,
pumpkins, beets, tomatoes and all
vegetables which will not keep without  cooking,   may  bc  canned.
After cleaning and preparing the
vegetables to be preserved, they are
enclosed in a cheesecloth bag and
parboiled for five minutes. They are
then dipped in cold water, packed in
glass jars, boiling water poured over
them to fill up all crevices, and the
lids loosely adjusted. The jars are
then laced in an ordinary boiler filled
with water, with plates or dish covers to prevent the jars touching the
bottom of thc boiler, and are allowed
to boil steadily for 3 1-2 hours. When
lifted from thc boiler, the lids must
be screwed down tihg, taudtr udtrau
be screwed down tight, and the jars
allowed to gradually cool, care being
laken that they are not exposed to
drafts, as a sudden cooling may have
a tendency to crack the glass.
Vegetables thus canned will keep
and be a welcome addition to the-
table in lieu of the high-priced canned
goods, an dthe surplus ,supply of vegetables, which otherwise might be
wasted, will be conserved.

It   has   been   clearly   demonstrated
that  the  good   dairy  cow  is  a   more
it has been proven that cows of proper type having a store of flesh before calving will not only milk more
heavily but also more persistently during the succeeding milking period, ll
is clear, therefore, that this supply of
fat and flesh stored on the dry cow
of dairy type will be drawn upon
when most needed and he either given
off as milk or so take the place of
feeds consumed in supplying bodily
needs that a larger proportion of these
feeds may be utilized for milk production.
The dry cow receives little attention
from the majority of dairy farmers.
The thin oow at calving is in poor
condition to make milk profitably and
cannot produce the rugged healthy
calf fitted to withstand the many calf
ailments. Allow the cow four to ten
weeks before freshening. A pound
of meal a day during this dry period
is worth as much aa two or three
pounds of. meal fed after the cow has
freshened. On poor pastiire.xlccd the

* * *
The foundation principles of the
successful selection of feeds and the
feeding of dairy cattle depend upon
the palatability, variety, nutrition and
ease of digestion, and succulence of
the ration given. All these essentials
of a well balanced ration ior economic
production must be considered when
raising  or  purchasing  foodstuffs.
The most economical ration must
have as a basis cheap but rich nutritious farm grown roughages such as
clover or alfalfa hay, ensilage and
roots. The liberal feeding of meals
is advisable to balance the roughage
ration and in addition to provide thc
heavy milking cow with an extra supply of nutrients in a less bulky form.
A pound o grain when the cow is
fresh is equivalent to several pounds
of grain after the cow has decreased
materially in her milk flow. Feed one
pound of meal for every 3 1-2 pound,
milk produced; as her lactation period
progresses decrease the meal gradually to 1 pound for ever five pounds
of milk produced. A fair average is
1 to 4. Following are a number of

is. they must be healthy, of good temperament, of the dairy type, good
size, of great capacity for consuming
feed, regularly heavy feeders and also
heavy producers.

Lack of Home Attractions Makes the
Boy Dislike the Farm
There are two equipments necessary for every farm home���an equipment tor work and an equipment for
living. Too often the equipment for
work receives much more attention
than the equipment for living. We
are influenced by onr surroundings
more than we know or are willing to
admit. Children especially are sensitive to these things. Many boys have
been driven from the country to the
city by the unattractiveness of their
home surroundings and the lack of
common comforts have made many a
farmer's boy dislike the farm. Every
farmer owes to his family and to himself the best that he can do in the
way of equipping the farm home and
making lhe home grounds beautiful
in order that the fullest and richest
life   possible  may  he  enjoyed.
The cost of improvement and planting will be one of the first considerations. The first item of improvement, neatness, need cost nothing
more than the effort necessary to put
things in their right places. Then, if
plantiiiig is to  he done,  there  should
lie a plan.    Tin's will
st   oul
amount of  feed  but she  does  this  at
the least  cost and greatest  profit.
Notwithstanding these facts the
production of milk and fat from the
average cow is exceedingly low, being
approximately 3,800 pounds milk and
130 pounds fat per annum which in
value is less than the total cost of
production. Nevertheless it has been
clearly demonstrated that by better
feeding and management this average
may he easily increased from 30 to
80 per cent, with an increased cost in
feed and labor of only 10 to 20 per
cent.; the margin would be largely
profit. Such an increase is not only
a financial necessity but the patriotic
duty of every dairy farmer.
* * *
The milk produced by a dairy cow
of proper type is in proportion ti
feeds consumed plus the reserve o'
feed stored in the body as fat and
flesh. As an example of the latter
it has been shown that fresh cows
may be fed on a maintenance ration
or even starved for several days yet
produce milk in failrly large quantities with, however, a proportional
decrease of weight and flesh.    Again

frequently brings on milk fever. On

the grain mixture to a full grain ration on or about the sixteenth day

Cost of Living Continues to Rise
Drastic fund regulations have been passed by the
United States House. Canada lias appointed a Food
Control Commission. Great llritain lias long been
subject to food regulations, Altogether ten nations
are on rations and six are in distressing lack of food.
The Allied nations are co-operating in the interests of
their fighting forces. Canada lias a great duty to perform iii helping to feed the other nations of the Entente
as well as herself. She has further an imperative financial duty. Tlie savings of the nation are necessary
to the support of the men at tlie front. By the practice of economy, national wealth can be saved for investment in War Savings Certificates. The .National
Service Board is appealing for such investment. Jt is
asking every man and woman in the country to save
their dollars and buy war bonds. Tlie opportunity for
war service is given to everybody. Have you taken
advantage of that opportunity?
To Advertise Canadian Goods in France
The Senate has adopted a resolution of Senator
Beaubie urging the government to advertise Canadian products in France by means of an exhibition train
of sample goods. Senator Beatibien said he had suggested to the French government that there should be
two trains organized, one carrying French goods to be
shown in Canada and othe other Canadian goods to be
shown iir France. A French steamship line had offered free transportation for tlie trains across the ocean,
and the plan had been favorably commented upon by
the French press.
Sir James Lougheed said that tliere were limits to
what any country could do in tlie way of giving effective aid for the development of foreign trade, which
must be developed more or less through natural channels. Tn Canada there had been a disposition to rely
on government assistance for everything. Xot a railway could bc built without government aid : there was
not a transportation project that the government was
not called upon to finance. This had the tendency to
rob the people of initiative and confidence. Tlie present and past governments had, to as large an extent as
they were warranted, given assistance and aid to both
domestic and foreign trades. He bad observed
frequently that enterprises without government assistance did better than those that relied upon the government. Sir James promised, however, to direct the attention of the government to the matter.
Another increase in the cost of living during the
latter half of May and the first half of June is recorded
in the official Labor Gazette, Ottawa, just published.
In retail prices the average cost of a weekly family
budget of 29 articles of food averaged $11.89 in sixty
cities at the middle of June, as compared with $11.82
at the middle of May, and $8.15 in June, 1916.
Milk, butter and flour were lower in price in June,
but eggs, meats, rice and other commodities showed
increases in price.   Coal and wood were also dearer.
In wholesale prices the labor department's index
number for 272 commodities stood at 242.7 for June,
as compared with 240 for May. 183.6 for June, 1916,
and 135.3 for June, 1914. The chief increases in
wholesale prices during the month were in fruits, vegetables, textiles, metals, coke, and miscellaneous building materials. Decreases occurred in grains, dairy
products, fresh fish, and some other foods.
There were 24 strikes, involving 97 establishments
and 10,657 employees, in existence during June, of
which eight, involving 49 firms and 3,291 employees,
commenced during the month. Thirteen strikes were
settled during the month, leaving 11 still unsettled at
the end of June.
Our Next War Loan
The results of Sir Thomas White's conferences this
week with Mr. McAdoo, secretary of the United States
treasury, are being awaited here with considerable interest. There is a strong feeling that so far as war
loans are concerned, the Canadian market well deserves
a rest. We have oversubscribed such loans aggregating $350,000,000. A short six months' period separated the second and third loans. By the time the fourth
loan is due, another six months will have elapsed. This
is a comparatively brief period, considering that the
third loan is only just about properly distributed. We
have not large accumulated funds for investment as
in older and wealthier countries.
That the third war loan should be issued simultaneously in Canada and the United States was suggested to the finance minister in March. After various
conferences, it was decided tliat a domestic issue should
be made. That was done and with great success. It
can be clone again, if absolutely necessary. But with
the heavy trade balance against us. so far as the l'nited
States is concerned, and the prevailing conditions in
the Canadian investment market, a well-deserved respite would bc given, could arrangements bc made to
finance our next war loan in the United States.
We are one of the best customers of the neighboring republic. Our purchases there during the ten
months ended April 30th were valued at $602,209,543,
while their sales to this country during the same period
were valued at $236,829,775, leaving a balance of
trade against us of $365,377,768. This unfavorable
trade balance has been redressed to a considerable extent by Canadian borrowings in Xew York by the sale
of Canadian securities, as well as by our favorable
trade balance with European countries. We can continue to purchase iu such large measure from the
United States only if a reasonable degree of borrowing
there is allowed our governments and municipalities.
Sentiment in both countries is in favor of this financial
assistance. The business situation makes it desirable.
Money market conditions here, in Xew York and iu
London, appear vto make it the proper thing at the
present time.
thai':1���'"Trie key to the situ&lioif. S3 far a- we can unlock it, lies in individual thrift and individual sacrifice.
Every njan, today, who consumes any article or employs any service wot absolutely necessary, aims a blow
at his country. Save every .cent. Live plainly. Do
without everything. Rise early, work hard, and con-.;
tent yourself with a bare living. The man,Who does
this���if he uses the saved money properly^-ris doing
war work for his country. But he must use his savings
properly. That is the whole essence of the matter."
As it is with men. so it is wilh women. The motto of
all should he to serve by saving and to invest in War
Savings Certificates.
An announcement that is virtually official comes
from Ottawa, that "il is probable holders of the last
two issues of Dominion war securities, namely, those
maturing iu 1931 and 1937, will he allowed to convert
their holdings'at the original issue price and accrued
interest into any issue which may in the future be made
with a maturity of twenty years or more, lt is the
known desire of the minister of finance," the announcement continues, "that those who have been patriotic
enough to subscribe to these issues, which had no right
of conversion, shall be placed in as good a position as
others who may subscribe to war loan issues in the
It is evident that the minister of finance has in
mind the necessity that must soon arise for the issue of
a new loan, and that therefore he is anxious to keep
the market prices of the existing loans at satisfactory
figures. In this, if in anything, is to be found the,
reason for the announcement we have quoted. Neither,
the policy adopted nor the method announcing it, however, is above criticism. The immediate effect of the
statement was to enhance the price of the loans referred to. Whether the finance department should thus
lend itself to the operations of the stock market is questionable.
The terms on which a government loan is issued |
form a contract that should be unalterable between the
government and the investor. If the minister proposed
to alter such a contract by taking away from the investor any privilege which had been bought and paid
for he would instantly bc assailed for breach of faith.
It is not clear that he has any more right to alter the
contract to the advantage of the investor. The right
of converting one issue of bonds into another of later
date is a thing of some advantage and value. The government get that value in the price tliey fix for the issue, and the investor pays for it when he pays the price
so fixed. When a loan is issued without a conversion
privilege, of course no such value is given by the government or received by thc buyer. To announce
months afterward that such a privilege is to bc given
to the buyer���or rather to the present holder, who may
not he the original buyer���is to give him something
that he is not entitled to, since he has not paid for it,
and to put him gratuitously on even tertns with others
who have had to buy and pay for the same privilege.
It is the alteration of a contract which should be as unalterable on one side as on the other.
The minister's desire to have the outstanding loans
rank well in the market, so that he may hope to obtain
a good price for his next issue, can be understood. But
there is much room to doubt tbe wisdom of such an attempt to influence the market. If a tight money market makes it necessary for the minister to issue his next
loan on terms less favorable to the government than
the earlier loans, that is a disadvantage that the public
must be content to bear. Will it not, in the end, be better to face this if necessary, than to alter, as he is doing, the terms of the contract on which the outstanding
loans were issued? A bargain is a bargain, and in
matters of such importance the bargain should he regarded on both sides as sacred.���Journal of Commerce.
Hon. W .J. Hanna, food controller, issued the following statement on Wednesday. July 11:
The consumption of wheat, beef and hacon in lhe
Dominion must be reduced by at least one-third to
meet the needs of the Allied armies aud people. Every
man, woman and child in Canada is tinder a direct
war obligation to assist in that reduction. The consumption of flour in England and France is being reduced to between three and four pounds per person per'
week. Canada and the L'nited States must reduce
their normal consumption of wheat by 160 million
bushels this year to meet the added requirements for
export. Russia lias been enduring four meatless days
a week. Households in England are under voluntary
obligation to limit their consumption of meat to two
and a half pounds per person per week.
The Allies look to Canada to relieve their food
shortage. Both the producer and the consumer must
assist to give that relief, the producer by producing
and conserving to the utmost of his capacity, and the
consumer by substituting perishable, and conserving
storable foods for export. By such joint action the
soldiers of Canada, the Empire and the Allies will
be strengthened in the struggle for victory.
Economy in the use of foodstuffs, particularly of
heat, bacon and beef, is imperative.    Waste in the
hotels, restaurants, clubs and homes of the Dominion
a crime.
The committee on the control of food consumption, consisting of Mr. Justice Rose, chairman: Miss
Mary U. Watson, Mr. George Wright and Mr. W. A.
Cooper, has been in session for two days. Within a
very short time it will have proposals to submit for
the consideration of various classes of consumer:..
Meetings will then be held at various centres to discuss the proposals with the various elements and interested affected.
(Signed) W. J. HANNA, t
Food Controller.

In the L'nited States of late years tliere has been
a rapid decline in the number of foreign language

our greatest immigration of foreign-speaking peoples,
but they diminished in number when the second and

The American was no slacker when it came to doing

the food should he so desire. As soon as seated at

London's Financial System
That there are thing in which the rest of the
world may learn useful lessons from Germany may
readily be admitted. In some lines of industrial education, German methods have proved effective, and
doubtless there are some other directions in which the
German genius for efficient organization may be admired. It has been claimed that in facilities for the
encouragement of foreign commerce Germany has heen
ahead of Great Britain, and the British people are
sometimes called on to follow German examples. .There
is now a movement on foot to establish a new concern
to be called the British Trade Corporation, to supply
the alleged want. Traders, we are told, have repeatedly gone to tbe llritish Hoard of Trade asking that some
organization be established to serve business interests
as the Deutsche Hank has served the trade interests of
Germany. Statements of this kind have moved a writer
in the London Economist to protest against the idea
that what the Deutsche liank lias been doing to facilitate trade is unusual and without au equivalent in the
llritish system. The most that can bc said for the German bank's method is that it comprises within one
corporation several lines of financial operations which
London, from its experience, finds can be best carried
on separately. "The Deutsche Banks." says this
writer, "does not indulge in conjuring tricks, nor has
it evolved any method of finance that is not already
practised in London. It appeals, however, to the
imagination on account of its imposing size and manifold activities, for it is a clearing bank, an accepting
house, an issuing house, a discount company and promoting syndicate rolled into one." In London each of
these functions is performed by a separate institution,
each one specializing in its particular line, and, the
Londoner thinks, doing the work better than all can be
done by any one concern. The only point in which it
is admitted the German system excels is the promoting
business, which Germany has been able to do better
than London because of the German superiority in
technical education. This, it is confessed, has given
the German banks the benefit of the services of highly
trained technical advisers. In this respect we may he
sure that, in the arrangement of after-the-war trade
plans. John Bull will make a vigorous effort to overtake his rival, and that there will be no ground of
complaint as to London's ability to hold its own in
competition with Berlin.

Thrift  and  Economy  Must  Be  Practised
Throughout the Dominion
Ten nations of the world are on rations. Food conditions in Canada are becoming serious. The neces
sity for careful examination of every expenditure is
imperative upon every man and woman in the country.
Thrift must lie exercised by all. The need of the hour
is well expressed by Stephen  Leacock, who writes
Red Tape is synonymous with technicalities which

Washington hummed and hawed because papers had
to be revised by this man or that department, each

the matter on hand.
That a thing can be done without preliminaries is
proved by an incident in the Civil War. An old engineer was told one day a bridge must be built over a certain stream. "The major will furnish you plans in
the morning," said his superior.
The ne,xt day he was called before thc commandant, who asked: "Have you received the plans for
that bridge ?"
"The bridge is done, sor; I don't know if the pic-
ter is finished or not," was the reply.���The Wall Street
Jn peace times, Lloyd's Association, with its agents
and signal stations in every part of the world, is the
chief distributor of news of ship movements, but various exchanges and private concerns collect their own
news. When tliere is no military purpose to .serve,
port authorities freely impart news of arrivals and
departures of vessels. d I
To ship chandlers and some merchants this news '
is vital, but with the United States' declaration of-war,
ship news was practically suppressed. To supply the
necessary information, huts and bungalows along the
coast have been turned into private observatories, and
as soon as a ship is sighted, it is reported to the head
offices and it can be met on arrival.���The Wall Street
The closer organization of the British Empire has
removed for all time, so far as we can see, even from
academic discussion, thc question of annexation. Canada is and will be not a colony but a free nation. Antl,
moreover, she is our ally. Frictional feeling is gone;
mutual confidence is engendered. We must seize the
opportunity to unite our feelings more closely. In all
Pan-American Congresses we must see that Canada is
recognized. Our educational institutions must study
Canada as they study Latin America. We must cultivate personal international friendship with her. For
Canada and we are facing common problems, of immigration, of water ways and railroad transportation, of
labor and capital,/of suffrge. We shall solve them
with far greater ease if we approach them in a spirit
of trust and, co-operation.���Chicago Record-Herald. SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1917

Thereafter neither spoke for a moment. From the stables a horse whinnied softly and a gust of laughter and
the sound of a falling ale-pot came
from the crowded parlor.
Then they moved forward and stood
by the open window,

Anne.    "There by tbe door."
Thc old nobleman whom her smiling eyes sought out, sat quietly apart,
his sword across his knees, with his
body-servant standing behind him. His
near-sighted glances, sent squinting,
carched the assembly vvith a lurking
distrust. They were king's men, truly,
but not gentle like those of bis own
time. He turned bis face toward Foy,
as the latter, pounding the table with
his sword, suddenly spoke up loudly:

Anne flinched as if she had been
stung, and seized Henry's wrist.
"Oh!" she said under ber breath.
"Come  away!"  'Tis  shameful!"
"Xo, let us bear it." he answered.
"Think you I am not used to such as

of infinite  scorn. "Look!"

The Greatest Good to the
Greatest Number
Eight times as many people use the street
cars daily as use the jitney.
If the jitney were allowed to stay at the
cost of driving away the street car, 80,000
to 90,000 people would be inconvenienced
Is that the greatest good to the greatest
number���the principle on which all progress
must depend?
The street car service is adequate to meet
every need and is the only mode of transportation that accommodates all classes of travel.
To sacrifice the transportation systenTthat
every city of this size on the continent has
found necessary for the temporary whims
of a few who are not concerned with the
rights of the majority, would be poor business.
If you wish to retain the service of the
street railway, see that conditions make it
possible for it to operate and give your active
support to obtaining fair play for your
transportation system.

al Prosecutions Collapse.'' As far as
Manitoba's case is concerned it was
by no means a complete collapse.
Thos. Kelly, the contractor involved,
is serving a two years' penitentiary
sentence and the arbitration commission finds he nuist pay to the state
improperly appropriated funds totalling some $l,2UO,(XX). This is no mean
victory for the people considering that
K elly was entrenched behind powerful political friends of both parties
and with opulent resources at his disposal. The punishment may not seem
adequate,  but  it is  considerable.
But on the whole, your contention
is well grounded. At the very time
your July 14 issue was being circulated thc Wctmorc Royal Commission
of Saskatchewan, after a year's investigation of alleged frauds in public
works of that province reported. The
exposures recorded that one McPherson, chairman of the highly honorable and lucrative Highways oBard,
acting in that confidential capacity,
had awarded a quarter of a million in
contracts, without competition to a
company in which he was a silent partner, the chief shareholder. Of course
he resigned and now the commission
merely "censures Mr. McPherson for
acting in the dual capacity of chairman of the highways board ami stockholder in a contracting company." If
tbis   is  the   only  penalty   involved   in

To the Editor of the Standard:
Alter reading the Rev, A. E.
Cooke's splendid sermon in last
week's Standard. 1 feel as though a
Thomas and avoidadu rad rtdar dart
young lady could not help seeing The
Thorns and avoiding them. But is it
the young lady's fault. We are all
children of fortune and did it ever
dawn on this reverend gentleman
that half the girls from the age of
12 to 18 years are children of mothers that used criminal methods to attempt to destroy them before they
were born. Can you reap wheat from
thistle seeds that you have sown. The
pre-natal influence has often been to
destroy, to weaken instead of to fill
with beauty and joy. A great majority of women and mothers today
and for the past decade have been
contriving every manner of methods
to frefrain from thc maternal duties
and often tliey are not successful and
the child is born to what, a disgruntled mother and father not welcome,
weak in will power. For'the mother
has been weak in performing the
greatest gift that God has given, the
reproduction of His own image.
How can we expect a strong willed
and brave generation from such parents.    It seenis to me that the mothers and fathers need a sermon more
the  gross  betrayal  of a  public  trust  than  thc  girls.    If thc  farmer  has a

how can we expect the stream of public employment to remain tin-polluted? Are the times not ripe for the
fear of God to be placed in the men
who use public positions for improper
private gains?
.   Now come the revelations  that the
cold storage manipulators have reaped
millions   out   of'necessaries   of   life,
which   they  cornered  in  defiance   of
cvety   principle   of   decency   and   the
criminal  statutes.  Is  there to be  no
prosecutions?    Can  the  criminal   law
not be invoked to discourage such sinister  profiteering?    lt  is   no  secret
that a small body of grain and Hour
manipulators   formed   a   plunderbitnd
which  put the  price of bread stocks
two hundred per cent, higher than the
normal  business  condition  demanded,
here in Manitoba, and when caught on
the "short side" of the market wliich
they had industriously rigged up  for
the consumer this spring, powerful interests came to their relief and saved
them from the consequences of being
caught   (by  thc  merest  accident)   in
the trap which they had set for the
helpless public. Whither are we drifting  as  a   Commonwealth   when  acts
of  this   character  go  unrebuked  and
the men who pull the strings go un-
whipped by justice?   These same men
prate of their patriotism and loyalty,
but   no   considerations   of  patriotism
prevent them making the cost of living prohibitary to the families of our
fighting men.    And do not make the
mistake of imaging that there is no
direct relations between these revelation and the sudden falling off in recruiting.     Military   district    Xo.    10
(Manitoba)   which   stands  second   iu
the honor roll of recruiting, has the
poor satisfaction of recording but 228
enlistments for the first fifteen days
of July! Can this bc anything but the
practical  interpretation   of  public   resentment against the food hogs?   The
milling   trust   boasts   of   ten   millions
profit in  1915-16.    Does this account
for bread being more expensive here
on  these  prairies  where  we  produce
the grain to feed the Empire, than in
war-worried London? And then some
eastern  plutocrats  dare  suggest  that
perhaps the "west is not loyal."   We
of the west know thc truth. We know
that   the   voluntary   system   has  been
a success west of the Lakes, and wc
know that conscription will be  sup
ported here in spite of the men who
hoard eggs, chickens and other necessaries for abnormal prices when these
articles are so scarce that our soldiers'
hospitals   can   with   diwculty   secure
supplies  of  same.    But will  we  not
reap the whirlwind for tolerating these
scandalous conditions? When our food
controlleracts instead of uttering academic    bromides    about    conserving
food,   then   the   great,  loyal  masess,
will be energetically interested.    The
People   are   sound.   The   canker   is
among those who have been delegated authority to lead.   Ottawa officials
can't travel over the country in private
cars and expect advice on  food and
man power conservation to be accepted seriously.   It would be ridiculous if
it did not concern the very existence
of our common country.   It does not
seem to occur to some of these men
whose   daily  existence   seems   to  be
guided wholly by a  dollar mark  that
they may provoke such a  cataclysm
by their    grasping,  pelfish    methods
poor crop of apples he flames the
tree and unreadily prunes or nourishes it. Don't blame the poor girls. In
a great many cases they are either
the victims of a careless mother and
father or loose early training, and
sometimes too much rigid training
Then too'there are men who are the
cause of this. Hundreds of cases are
from employers, pillars of society
and leading men. The girls appear
at Police Court and may confess who
the man was, but you never see any
men mentioned cither in the papers
or pulpits. Thc poor Cowan woman
is forgotten about now and Dr. 'Per-
civat King goes to his office everyday. If you would tar and feather
just one man, such as the dear Doctor, it would put the fear into the
rest of them. Everyone preaches to
the girl, papers, judges, preachers and
parents; but what is done for the
real cause of the trouble. The men
go free and the parents are pitied for
the shame that is brought on the family name. Thc Rev. Dr. Cooke might
preach a like sermon to parents and
mention a ew prominent, respectable
men of the city who help the downfall of girls along and then clean up
on the girls.
