Is Vancouver City Helpless?
Parasites and Pests a Plague on <��� ity Life
WO weeks ago, and in all sincerity, The Stand-
ard asked the question, "Who was getting tlie
graft in the City of Vancouver"? Certain plain statements of facts were also made, which have not heen
contradicted Up to this time of writing. Since these
assertions were made by us, and in the district wliich
was clearly specified, "Within a stone-throw of First
Presbyterian Church,���one of the most sordid tragedies that ever stained the records of any city has been
The jury empanneled by the Coroner fqjund that
a soldier's wife, Norah Elizabeth Cowan, met her
death while intoxicated with liquor, supplied by the
management of the Empress Hotel. They urge drastic action by thc license commission, as the evidence
showed a grossly loose system of hotel management.
This jury was also convinced that all the facts
of the case had not been disclosed, and urges that the
proper authorities further investigate the whole matter. Final judgment should therefore be withheld by
the general public until the result of that inquiry is
Nothing could prove the contention of The Standard that drastic action requires to be taken by the
citizens of Vancouver to clean up the cess-pool of
civic administration, more than this occurrence. Right
within full view of the City I tall and under the nose
of every department of our civic administration we
find the civil and criminal laws of Canada being
violated. And yet we are told, by a few sickly sentimental moralists, that Vancouver never was cleaner
than it is today. Wc have had indignation meetings
in the past that resulted in real good for the
city We have had others that aim united lo
farces and nothing more, but surely, in view of all
that has been stated, and what lias happened, and what
may happen at any moment in our midst, we arc
justified in asking the "Purity Squads" of our city.
"Do they intend to let these matters pass withoul
notice?" When some business men arc meeting in
conference to devise some scheme to save thc souls
of Vancouver's thousands, and incidentally help pay
the expenses of a tramp evangelist from the United
States, who has spent six weeks in our midst, defaming and damning the ministers ot our city, the very
forces of Hell arc let loose, and not one voice is raised
against them.
These husiness men of Vancouver may find singing
"Rescue the Perishing" under the baton of an American, a very interesting and amusing pastime, and
"footing the bill" for this kind of entertainment may,
in the minds of many, bc an act of love and devotion
to the cause of the Gospel, but there are people who
think differently. While they all slumbered and
slept in the Tabernacle listening to a rehash of antiquated theology from a peripatetic evangelist who
would look well in a United States uniform, the
morality of our fair city is being defamed and outraged.
A deep sense of shame and guilt should possess
every right minded citizen of Vancouver today as we
read the details of this sordid crime. We should all
wear sack-cloth and ashes, because, in our laxity and
indifference, we have allowed the name of our city
to be dragged in filth, crime and iniquity. And we
are doing nothing to remedy these conditions. Whose
daughter will be the next victim, for the vultures of
' the Pacific coast to prey upon? Are you perfectly
���  ���sure tliat those of vour own house
spare neither time nor money iu getting thi.. in-titu-
tion into ihe verv best condition ior the alleviation of
the sufferings which this scourge produces.
In the City of Vancouver, however, because of the
lack of proper sanitary accommodation and faulty and
slip-shod building construction, we are, according to
the authorities on the subject, manufacturing tubercular cases quicker than we can take care of them.
That such a lamentable -tate of affairs should exist
in a young city like ours, is simply deplorable, and
although this situation has been pointed out, time
after time, no attempt at remedy has been made. We
have conditions existing in the East-end and foreign
quarters of our city, that are not paralleled even in
the sqttallor-dom of Canton. A plague may break out
any moment in the down-town section that will carry
off thousands of our population. Just bow long we
are going totolerate a troup of incompetent officials
in our City Hall is for the citizens to say. While the
Mayor and councillors attend the roystering riots of
a Carnival that was a disgrace to any city, or paw the
air in pious platitudes at revival dinners, the health
of our city is being ruined.
The whole working of our City Hall system could
stand strict investigation. Many of the officials tliere
are known to be both incapable and lazy. A few of
the younger loafers might well be packed off to the
front. They might be of use there. They serve no
purpose at the City Hall, other than to act as ward
politicians, and heelers during election times.
That the health of the city should be so seriously
menaced because of gross mismanagement is a tragedy that the citizens do not seem to realize. But such
is thc case, and so long as the City Hall is allowed
to remain as a committee room for a bunch of petty
politicians, who seem to have more regard for vote.-
than they have for reform, so long will this disgraceful state of affairs exist.
Whal  Will the Men in the
Trenches Think of the Cowan Case?

are allowed to filter through. The present tense political situation in Canada and the lack of any reliable

sacrificed needlessly, because of thc unsanitary conditions of British Columbia generally, and Vancouver

'' Patients who have been there tell us that the B. C.
Sanatorium at Tranqttille, Kamloops. is wholly tin-
adapted for the treatment of tuberculosis. A term
of residence there, hastens rather than lessens, the
ravages of the disease. And this for many reasons.
The buildings, we are told are not suitable for the
proper handling of those afflicted with this fell sickness, Large sand-bars in front of the buildings,
together with the strong winds that prevail in the
Kamloops district, make residence in the institution
an agony. The affections are irritated by these
storms and few, if any patients ever recover from
tubercular trouble in the B. C. Sanatorium. A better
percentage of recoveries, would, it is asserted, be
affected, were the provincial buildings situated in the
Penticton district. The climate and the conditions
there are much more agreeable for sufferers with
tubercular affections, and altogether, it is urged, by
those best qualified to judge, something should
be done, and that right speedily, to remedy existing
conditions. The Provincial government will, doubtless, when the matter is brought before their notice,
One hundred and fifty or so, The Standard is informed, of this tribe of assasins passed through our
city the other day ou their way back home to Russia.
They preached their doctrines as they passed through.
"All the same Kaiser. President Wilson. King of
Britain, all cle same. I am of no country: I am free
man; I fight against every ting." They may have been
entertained to luncheon by those disciples of the beloved Emma who hibernate on the Pacific coast. We
do not know, nor are we interested to know. But the
question we raise at this time is one tliat affects three
of the countries now struggling to break the power
of Kaiserism. Canada. America and Russia are involved in this issue. Is it fair that this type of American citizen should be allowed, by the immigration
authorities of either of the countries involved, to
migrate from one land to another during such critical
times, and more especially when we know that his
express purpose in returning to his Fatherland, is not
to help the cause of liberty, but to strengthen tb^
forces of those whose avowed purpose and propaganda is, the complete overthrow of every ideal ind
institution that produces and perfects the happiness
of nations. The Canadian immigration authorise

to dye the heather with their blood, when occasion
demanded that they stand for principle, arc arousing
themselves and considering, in all seriousness the
present state of affairs. No parliament will foist onto
these men legislation that they do not want. Thev
are not traitors, even if they do not sec eye to eye
with the agents of the autocrats of Canada. They love
their country, and it may bc that, in the hour when
these bureauocrats think not. the spirit of their fathers
may take possession of them, and they will sweep
from office and from this fair land, those who have
nothing but a selfish interest in the affairs of the
country. Let those men who seek to stampede the
country remember that the spirit that was manifested
the other day in Russia is a world-spirit. It hates
Kaiserism in any form, and it would seem, to the
observer of history, as if its day and hour had come.
It is yet within the range of possibilities that a French-
Canadian or even a laborist may lead the gallant
armies of glorious, free born Canada, on to deal the
death blow to all that the Kaiserism and Hunnisli
terrorism of our day represents.

Bob  Edwards on Honeymoon
Calgary's Big Man Visits Vancouver
VANCOUVER has a distinguished visitor today
in the person of Mr. Robert Chambers Edwards, Editor of the Qilgary Eye-Opener. Mr.
Edwards is on a honey-moon trip to the Pacific coast,
and77i_* Standard extends to him and his bride the
heartiest congratulations and best wishes for their
prosperity and happiness.
"Bob" Edwards is one of the big men of Western
Canada. As a journalist he has few equals on the
continent of North America. He fought, almost
single handed the Fight for Prohibition in Alberta,
and the people of that Province owe him a debt o-'*-..
gratitude for what he did for them in the cause of
Temperance reform. .
"Bob" has reformed. He now stands for everything that is clean and honest and above-board. He
has the courage of a lion and, now that he has become a benedict, we have no doubt of his developing
the docility of the proverbial '���household" lamb. We
liave not heard whether he has taken in all the amusements in our fair city. The Tabernacle will be open
sfor a few days more, "Bob." If you want to get a
ine on the rascality of the preachers of the United
���States just drop in. You'll enjoy yourself all right.

ln Palm Beach the Smith flyer has

For a novelty stunt the manager
of the Royal Poinciana Hotel, had a
Smith Flyer driven right into the

From a cycling point of view the
best athletic meeting held in Vancouver during the past five years took
place at Mahon Park, North Vancouver, at the Dominion Day Celebration. The weather was ideal, and
quite 10,000 people witnessed the
sports. The four lap track is a good
one; it is not banked and in cufise-
qtience the times were not fast, but
still were good. The band of the
Irish Fusiliers occupied a place in
the grand stand and kept the huge
crowds in good humor all the time.
Two Indian teams, the Musquam and
Squamish. started the fun with Chief
Matthias facing the ball. Squamish
won with a score of 7 to S.
The athletic programme was a long
and varied one. principal interest being taken in the bicycle races in
which Lanie II ask ins had much to
do. McDonnell won both the 100
and 200 yards dash, H, J. Ridley securing first place in the one-mile flat.
In the one-mile bicycle race open, the
Vahderdassen brothers took first and
second prizes, the older winning in
the fast time of 2.37; the one-mile
local race, open to North Vancouver,
for prizes donated by Messrs. Haskins & .Elliott, was won by Sam Mc-
Climnijint, closely followed by Lawrence Stevens; time .1.23.

Another day we tracked a mysterious lake to its very source away
back in the folds of the hills. It was
gloriously beautiful, but when we sat
down to rest and admire the scenery
we found ourselves amidst a plague
of frogs ceaselessly hopping so we
could not  remain  there.
That evening, I recollect, we called
at the farm for milk on our way
home, and' the dear old lady there
begged us not to be nervous if we
heard shooting in the nighttime, as
it would only be her sons who had
gone out after two panthers (cougars, ur mountain lions) which had
been killing their sheep. When wc
got out into the road we tried to he
brave, but it was somewhat difficult.
It was growing dark and wc had
thick woods to go through to our
tent. Even if we won through these
safely wc might find the panthers
lining on the leg of lamb we had
left in our arbutus larder. We got
through the woods all right, but I
don't know which of us shook the
most. Fatima says T "simply shook
like an aspen leaf," whatever that is;
personally 1 think she shook like two
aspen leaves, only as I was carrying
the milk, it naturally showed more.
Dead Wood Useful
There was an enormous lot of dead
wood about the camp, and that night
I made a fire that could have been
seen for miles round. We sat by
it for ever so long, for neither of us
wanted to go to bed, and when at
last we did make a move I piled up
the big logs to last for hours, and
you may be sure it was not the smell

night, hut to see if the fire Wasn't
beginning to go out. Whether the
big bonfire scared them or not I cannot say,-of course, but neither of the
panthers were caught. They must
have got safely off to the woods
again, but we did not rest easy for
many a  night.

It is said that in Paris frocks and
fashions generally are becoming a
trifle more marked and noticeable
than they have been during the dark
days of the last two years, when the
brooding shadow of war has lain so
heavily over all. men and women 1
alike. The natural spirit of the
French people is one of gaiety and
hope, and the first instant things
begin to appear more hopeful for
them, it will break like sunshine
through dark clouds, and reveal itself at first in little things, of which
a gayer note in dress will undoubtedly be one. for to be elegantly gowned

with aii accompaniment of pleasant
words and smiles; not only that, hut
they serve all meals at strictly reasonable prices. A limited amount of
sleeping accommodation is also provided at the Inn, in rooms or tents,
as preferred, while all meals are
served at small tables on 'a wide
verandah, so that visitors practically
live in the open, though there is a
comfortable lounge with easy chairs,
fireplace and books for wet days. It
is run upon somewhat similar lines,
and reminded me very much of certain quaint Inns to be found in the
pine forest districts of France, where,
in days of peace, jaded Parisinnes
would go to recruit their systems by
a few weeks of life in the fresh air.
I can safely say that those in need
of complete rest, artists, or fishermen, could with equal advantage and
profit, spend a delightful holiday

thoughts had perforce to turn toward

with charming frocks. Dresses in
soft satin in shades of grey, and dark
blue, or black with embroideries of
gold or silver were very much in
evidence, as well as voiles and satin
blended in biege, black or while. One
striking costume was in ivory silk
jersey over which was worn a loose
coat of golden brown satin embroidered   in   silver   and   gold.
There were worn also a great number of soft black dresses over white,
cut on the straight chemise lines.
The newest and smartest hat al
the present moment being worn in
Paris, is of black soft felt, simply
trimmed with a ribbon, turned up on
one side and worn with a good deal
oi style. Very general also arc the
hats of a big sailor shape, or the
little toque, but they both have high
crowns of felt and straw brim,���the
favorite  color  in  these  being beige.
Ivory felts are also worn, as well
as turbans of satin or silk, embroidered  ami  veiled  with  tulle.

Italian Red Cross Concert
An -exceedingly interesting am!
characteristic event was tlic Grand
Concert held last week in aid of the
Italian Red Gross. Many of the
leading citizens oi Vancouver, of that
nationality, were lo be seen amongst
the audience, as well as tlu- Italian
consul of the city, and of Seattle, also
the United States consul, and others.
A most noticeable figure was a
white haired veteran. Signor Loiiigi
Blanchi, who proudly displayed upon
his breast medals worn when fighting
with the great Garibaldi, for thc liberty of Italy. The decorations were
all in the National colors of Italy, as
also were the ribbons upon the white
dresses of the bon-bon sellers, and
the flowers composing the bouquets
presented  to  the artists.
The bust of Dante by Signor Mar-
ega. and the National flag graced the
centre of the stage, while portraits of
thc King, the Italian sovereigns, Garibaldi and Mazziui were hung in prominent  places.
With permission of Major R. Tapper the hand of the 72nd Highlanders was present and gave selections,
as well as the British and Italian National Anthems, thc Garibaldi March,
and others of a patriotic character.
The soloists were Madame De
Ponti. Mrs. Herbert Wood, Mrs.
Bezean Phillips and Mr. Frederic
Taggart. while an excellent short
address   "Italia   Redenta,"   given    by
phrases and words have sprung into
popularity. Nay. more. Some of
them threaten to, if they have not
ain ady become au obsession to many
people. Greater, perhaps, then even
the tyranny of the Kaiser over the
bodies and minds of his subjects is
the tyranny oi certain words or phrases over many minds since the great
war  started.
Some of these arc most apt. pertinent, and within their limitations,
hardly to be bettered. But the trouble is that they are used in conversation writing in so literal ans dogmatic a fashion, without qualification
or reservation, that they lead to misconception  and   confusion,
Take the expression "muddling
through" as applied by both English
and American papers to Great Britain's conduct of the war. This
phrase vvas originaliy used by Lord
Rosebery during the progress of
tlu- Boer war. Rosebery was then
considered "the Empire's orator.''
The expressive words caught on.
They were joyfully seized by the
British people (who delight in this
curious species of national depreciation) aud widely advertised in book,
song and story as epitomising the
only way in which they conduct a
war. govern a people, change the
laws. or. in fact , "sec anything
through." The phrase became stereotyped, .''.ml il was gradually accepted |-jul,,
by other nations who cannot undc-
i stand this curious kind of self-depreciation, as truly expressing a British
characteristic. As if in starting anything, a business or a war. mistakes
and blunders are not inevitable with
every person or nation. But alas!
it is ,,uly Great Britain that admits
tlic soft impeachment. There is no
oilier country in the world whose
people, individually ami nationally,
arc SO prone to this habit of self-de-
preciation. It is a national vice, ii
il   is  often  a  lovable personal   trait.
As a matter of fact, iu this very
business   oi   the   war.   Germany    has
made   greater   blunders,   political   and  more slavishly they
military  (having regard to  her larger
preparedness)    than    Great    Britain.
Per chief objection,, the conquest of
France,   Russia  and  England   (to  sayi
iiotbing of ihc collapse of tlu- Baghdad scheme l) have utterly and finally!
failed.    But then, Germany never ad-
Imits defeats or blunders in other res-;
pects.     She   docs   ret   believe   in   the
|defeat of her world-wide, schemes or
any   such   stupid   Brilish   methods   of
Just   as   this   phrase   of   "middling
through"   has   been   extended   beyond
all sane limits  in  its  British  application,   SO   tbe   Teutonic   idea   of   "Ger-
.   ,|imau efficiency" has become tli opposite   stereotyped       tradition.      Eachi
phrase  is  really  a  revelation  of na-l
tional  character.    Thc  one  is   British:
self  depreciation;   the  other  German
self-complancency.      And    in     both
cases   other    countries     and    peoples
have accepted ihc separate valuations
as uue and conclusive.    As most pea-
pie arc  taken  at iheir own  valuations
and  as   it   is   too  much   menial  labor;
to think, define or weigh and consider,
it any wonder?   Why waste time
splitting     hairs,     quibbling     over j
words  and   derivations,   when   a   word;
or   a   thing   is   "generally    admited?".
That's  true  enough,  iu  things  immaterial.    But  when  they  involve  loose
thinking  and   utterly  wrong  generalizations   and   conclusions   in   so  vital
a matter as this war. the indiscriminate use of these phrases is somewhat
foolish.    Nor  vvill  it serve  any  good
purpose  to deny or depreciate    what
thc seeds of halt- and lust of conquest
While it is often asserted that th��
present Kaiser has modelled his life
or conduct on that of his ancestor,

toleration of free  speech.
Macauley, in his essay on Frederick, states that during his reign all

subjects, without let or hindrance. It

Then there is that German word
"Kultur," once held in honor and
repute, now a word of loathing, horror and derision. Supposed to be
synonymous with thc English word
"Culture," it was originally held by
Germans (before the war) to be
somewhat different in its meaning.
Implying among other things, the
cultivation and glorification of thc

no. it is quite a different kind of

As N'apolcon was called "the man of

On this fiftieth anniversary of Confederation tfic great Canadian" people
have every reason to "Remember the
Days of Old" with gratitude and
pride. We have now a Dominion
united and loyal in the hour of extreme need. The way has not always
been pleasant in the development of lour own heroes, and proudly say that
the light of the world, and in reviewing the .last fifty years of our National life we cannot ignore its grcat
place in the development of national
character. Its influence must continue. Its work must not be curtailed, and it is the duty of cvery
right minded citizen to maintain and
support that which has contributed so
largely to the development of this
wonderful democratic state.

In looking backward across these
past fifty years we see that the early
fathers had a very pronounced idea
concerning the sovereignity of God.
He was to them a real God, In whom
they Jived, moved, and had tlieir being. He dominated the whole course
of their lives. They sought comfort

We might well follow their example in these times. During these
past three years the glory of Canada
has been written On the soil of
France, in the blood of gallant and
heroic sons, of the men of The Covenant. The principles for which our
forefathers died are those for which
they fight today. We celebrate Confederation in all our churches by
reading our Honor Rolls, and as wc
do, we remember the days of old.
We again visit in spirit the Grey-

told us, "Pregnant with the seed of

When Cecil Rhodes, the great African Empire Builder was sitting for

he attributed it. "Well," said Rhodes,
"I think to the village life, and if I
may say so, to the village church."
In this' day of celebration of Canadian Federation let us not forget that
we owe a great deal to the village
life, and the village church of the
old days. The destinies of Canada
are inseparably wrapped up in the
religious life of those little hack-
woods communities down east. There
the national character was moulded
and preserved, and it is the duty of
the sons and daughters of these Ontario homes to live up to the traditions and principles of their fathers.

Moral Strength
WEAKNESS is about as bad in its results as wickedness. Often it is wickedness. When
people could bc strong, and choose to bc weak, may Ihey not justly bc blamed for the
evil that follows? When an individual is looked to for strength, und fails, docs not thc
failure of others come from their example? Everyone of us is strength to somebody,
and should live up to thc position.
No one can fell when the test wjll come, and therefore moral strength should bc developed and kept up all the while. That is the only kind of strength that can bc relied
upon. Spasmodic effort is not strength. No one can lean on it. Only by patient days
and steady exercise can abiding power be obtained. People that are leaned on are usually
quiet people, and arc often obscure. But what would the 'world do without them? "He

is the Cross of Jesus Christ. It has

When, more than a century ago,
news reached England of the Battle
of Trafalgar and the death of Xelson
in the hour of victory, the bells of
Chester Cathedral flung peal after
peal of air-borne triumph; but after
every peal, deeply, solemnly, mournfully, t|v*ajreatest bell tolled once, a
single booming note of grief.
Bells for many centuries have been
intimately associated with the hour
of national triumph and disaster. In
Belgium, famous as a land of bells
and carillons, the ancient tocsin of
Antwerp, cast in 1316, and named the
"Horrida," has been long disused; it
did  not,  in  this  year  of  battle,  cry
French and English bells are as notable for perfection of tone, but a
grcat many are renowned through
tradilion and association. Many of
the most famous French bells, like
Jacqueline of Paris and George d'Am
In'is of Rouen, were 'melted down for
gun   metal   during  the   Revolution.'
Of   the   English   bells,   many   bear
inscriptions    connecting    them    with
famous persons or events.    A Royalist village bell, of the period of the
Civil  Wars,  thus proclaims  its association with the execution of Charles
I.,   for  which  it  tolled  to  its  injury,
and   the   restoration   of   Charles   IL,
which   it  was   prepared   to   celebrate:
When  tllat my  Kings  he  suffered
I  lost my tonge, as he hys Head,
When  that my  Kinge  returned  to
J  found my Voice to ringe againe.
The magnificent peal of bells in the
church of St. Helen's, Worcester was
installed to commemorate the victories of the great Duke of Marlborough. Six of the eight bear the
nmase of battles, the other two those
of the Duke and Queen; and each
carries a patriotic inscription.
First is my note and Blenheim is my
For Blenheim's story will be sung in

finest peals in England, whose hymn

fens of Lincolnshire that Napoleon
had met defeat at Waterloo. Another
English bell, re-cast after it had, on
the same occasion, cracked under the
joyful strain of its own insistent
thunder, is  proudly inscribed::
I  rang the downfall of Buonparte,
and broke,
with   the  date  of  Waterloo.���"Great

supporters of the government will
oppose the bill, while a number of
Liberals have declared their intention of supporting it. In two cases,
speakers have used words which are
not conducive to harmony or goodwill, A passage in the Prime Minister's speech contained an unplcas-
ing suggestion concerning what
might happen when the soldiers return from the war. A French member of thc Opposition used lauguage
which seemed to advise forcible resistance to the law. Perhaps neither

A Paradise for Capital
Canada   has  been  a   paradise     for

we appreciate it so highly that    wc
take  care  of  their  capital   for  them
and  relieve  them    of    responsibility, j
Enterprise  is almost  worshipped    in
Canada.    If anyone will only build a
railway, and if he has no capital, we j
give it to him and let him  keep  the I
railway.    We   are  still   sublimely   innocent in  this regard,  but are  learning from  necessity if not from  logic. <

A   Real  War  Song
The entrance of the United Slates
into the European conflict is heralded by the publication of a real war
song, written by a Marylander, too,
Daniel M. Henderson, whose poem
has been awarded the National Arts
Club prize. The title "The Road to
France'! is incorporated in the theme
with a ringing vigor that sets thc
pulses leaping. The first verse of
the new song reads:
Thank God our liberating lance

didn't mind undoing the flap and
peering out. Of curse, there was
nothing to be seen of our visitors,
so I hurriedly tied up the flap again,
assisted Fatima to rise, and we
started to put things to rights. We
did not sleep much during the rest
of llie night, and the next morning
we went to the farm for milk together to tell our tale of woe. Of
course, it may have got swollen
somewhat by that time, and I must
say it was met solely with hilarity
instead of the seriousness it merited.
Even the old farmer, when 1 told
him Ihc moving tale, winding up vvith

chuckled as he winked at his "missus" and replied, "Well, judging from
your description miss they must 'a

That tent of ours was very comfortable in its way, but it was the
scene of many a thrill: Take Charles
for instance. lie was a very large
black spider which had apparently
conceived a hopeless affection for
Fatima, I think���for mc, SHE thinks.
He had been allowed to live because
wc both naturally hate to kill things,
and as Fatima truly observed, he
would have made a nasty "squash"
if you trod upon him. Anyway, he
adopted our tent with enthusiasm as
his home, and nothing we could do
would make him changg his views
We used to push our two big twigs or
a piece of paper dozens of times a
day between the two of us, yet whenever we went into that tent Charles
was always there. His favorite spot
was hanging from the roof crossing
on a long thread about a foot above
my face when 1 was in bed���just
where you dare not move an eyelash
or let out a whisper for help, for
fear it should precipitate the crisis
and make him drop. Once Fatima
swears she found him at the bottom
of a paper bag containing sandwiches
when we were miles from home, because he was there in the tent when
we got horn, swinging happily on
his thread just above my "bed. It is
awful to have been the cause, however innocent and unwilling of such
affection as this; the poor thing must
have simply wasted his days and
nights planning his best to keep near
us. drat him! I found him in the
sleeve of my bathing gown on one
occasion, and let out such a yell and
flung the garment such a distance in
the horrid surprise of the moment
that Charles had escaped and disappeared from mortal ken by thc time
I retrieved the garment. We congratulated   ourselves     that    we    had
running along  the  crossbar  with  his
little  legs   as   fast  as  he   could    go
await the stage, ejected the too faithful Charles from the luncheon basket
at the last moment, and took our luggage aboard the wailing launch. Our
holiday was over; but all the way
across the sea to town we were registering solemn vows that, Charles
or no Charles, we would do something similar next year or die in the
a tempt.���Miss II. W. Paul, in Wide

Xew York girls have organized for
military service���leastwise the New
York motorcycle misses have. Under
the captaincy of Mrs. Florence A,
Young and the guidance of the National League for Women's Service
which has its headquarters at New
York, a small but enthusiastic company of motorcycle girls has been
formed, which it is hoped in time
will develop into a large and thriving organization of the beneficial sort
Not Training for the Front
The girls do not expect to get to
the front; they do ti"l calculate on
making spectacular runs wiih highly
important messages behind the
trenches with the shells falling thick
and fast all round them. They are
far too practical for that. But they
do expect to gather from a course
of serious training, both as to military tactics and things mechanical, a
sufficient insight into Ihe things that
have heretofore been considered as
masculine attributes pure and simple
to enable them to replace men folks
who are called to the colors���and replace   them   effectively.
Getting Intense Training
To this end the squad is now being
given intensive training in motor vehicle mechanics with especial emphasis on the two-wheeler at one of New
York's largest and best equipped automobile schools in conjunction with
a class of women automobile drivers
which had been organized by the
league with  thc  same aim  ill  view.
Mrs. Young, who was captain of a
motorcycle branch of the Emergency
Service Corps in England, received
her preliminary training for the captainship working as an appentice in
a garage. Although a Xew York
woman, she went to England to do
volunteer war service at the beginning of the war. and she was among
the first women who hired out in
various capacities to take the jobs
of the men sent to the front. She donned overalls and worked in a garage,
changing tires, replacing tubes and
greasing   machinery.
"The work was good fun for me."
said Mrs. Young. "I didn't mind the
dirt and grease at all. The Emergency Service Corps sent mc around
to the garage owner wdio applied to
them for women helpers. He was
quite a woman-hater and looked me
over, very much displeased with the
idea of taking a woman on. "Well.

of thc Allies.
Crawling slowly under her own motive power the
Sesostris steamed into San Diego Harbor a few days
ago on her northward trip. There she was welcomed
back from her long sleep in the Guatemalan sands by j
the salutes of all craft in the harbor. It required nine j
months of continuous labor and the expenditure of j
nine human lives to enable Captain F. C. Stafford, of j
the British Columbian Salvage Company, to accom-
plish one of the greatest feats ever attempted in mari-l
time engineering by floating the vessel.
In the summer of 1907 the Sesostris~of the Kosmos;
Line, commanded by Captain H. Tenne, left her home |
port, Hamburg, bound for the ports of Central and j
South America. Bad luck followed the ship - almost j
from the day of her departure. She encountered very'
severe storms, and Iiad a difficult passage round Cape
Horn, but her solid steel frame and sound construction kept her in good condition. However, while the
crew was unloading coffee off the coast of Guatemala
near the small town of Ocqs, a slight equinoctial gale
broke the anchor chains, and drove the freighter side-
wise on the beach. At first Captain Tenne thought
the accident could easily be remedied at high tide.
But when high watej* came the treacherous sands had
shifted, and the captain found thc vessel firmly imbedded in thc beach. The sands continued to shift,
throwing the freighter higher and higher on the
beach, and increasing the distance to the free water
at the rate of a foot an hour. When thc rescue tugs
arrived they found the Sesostris stranded in an inland lake, 150 feet from the high water mark.
Leaving an assistant engineer in charge, Captain
Tenne and his crew retunied'to Germany. In October,
1907, he reported the loss of the vessel to the officials
of the Kosmos Line in Hamburg. Then, as the story
is told, he committed suicide.
The assistant engineer left in charge of the stranded vessel, rigged up an electric dynamo to the engines
of the freighter, and became sole owner of th Ocos,
Electric Light and Power Corporation. There followed three unsuccessful attempts to float and salvage
the great freighter. A wealthy Guatemalan was the
first to lose a fortune in thc attempt. Finally, he sold
his rights to an American, who also failed to put the
vessel into commission. The third attempt was made
by a large salvage company, but the SeSostris could
not'be moved. At last, in the spring of 1915, the
llritish Columbia Salvage Company purchased the
$1,000,000 freighter for $55,000.
Led by Captain Stafford, a squad of fifteen men
left Victoria on the 4th of July, 1916, on board the
tug Pilot, and since that time tliey have been working
on the stranded vessel. The most untoward adventure which happened to this party was an equinoctial
storm last February off the Guatemalan coast, in
which the Pilot foundered and nine men were drowned, among them the First Officer, J. Birss, and Engineer W. C. Patterson of the salvage expedition.
Because the engines of the Sesostris had been
kept in excellent condition, Captain Stafford was able
to rig up winches run by-power derived from them.
A number of centrifugal pumps sucked more than
100,000 cubic feet of sand from about thc partially
buried ship. Then a small canal was dug from the
inland lake in which the Sesostris rested to the high
water line. Through this the ship was finally brought
to deep water. The original cargo had beeii removed
years ago by means of an especially built railroad
spur connecting with the Guatemalan Railroad lines.
so that when the Sesostris finally glide.l into deep
water she floated high and easily. It was even necessary to use some of the sand that had held her captive
as ballast.
The northward journey was begun with the llritish tug Nitiriat helping to tow the vessel. But owing
to the scarcity of fuel it became necessary for the tug
to cut loose when theyfhad gone only a few hundred
miles, and the Sesostris continued her journey slowly
alone. As soon as the Francis L. Skinner reaches
V ictoria it is planned to use her to carry supplies to

Further, Mr. Appleby says tliat since the Xew
York money market has received the attention and so
much of the business of foreign countries for the put-
pose of securing credits, the increase in the number
of foreign banks, and the growth of the business of
those foreign banks already established, have been
very great; and as in the final analysis practically all
of the exports from this continent to Europe are financed here, iinprecedently large opportunities are
offered for employment of funds in foreign exchange,
which yields a satisfactory return, and at the same
time enables the banks to keep their funds liquid.���

Canadian Canned Goods in Great Britain
Mr. Harrison Watson, Canadian Trade Commissioner.  London, in his latest report, savs:���
"It seems a favorable opportunity for again directing attention to the excellent prospects which
should await the coming season's pack up-Canadian
canned fruits and vegetables in this market.
"While it is true that ordinary commercial transactions are substantially reduced by existing import
restrictions, upon the other hand the virtual prohibition of sources of supply outside of ilk- British Empire for at least a considerable proportion of the year, '
obviously gives an enormous advantage to Canadian
goods, while the avowed policy of the government
departments and that important body, tlie Army Canteen Committee (which now purchase on behalf of
some 2000 canteens), to give all possible preference
to the products of tiie Empire, offer- opportunities
of which it is hoped Canadian packers will take that
full advantage of which they were so unforunately
deprived last summer owing to the indifferent yield
of so many vegetables and fruits.
"As upon previous occasions, and only last year
whe.i import restrictions were first introduced, reports dealing with the various aspects of the canned
goods trade in this country have been published in
the Weekly Bulletin, upon the last occasion including
the views of thc principal London dealers, it is unnecessary to cover thc ground again.
"It might be repeated, however, that a demand
for Canadian tomatoes, peas and pears has resulted
from the dislocation of ordinary sources oi- supply
effected by the war. while owing largely to the presence of the Canadian Expeditionary Force and their
families, a demand has been created for goods previously very little used in this country, such as baked
beans and sugar corn.
, "Many of the principal canned goods importers in
London and elsewhere have already been in touch
with some of the Canadian packers of canned fruits
and vegetables, but thc frequent additional inquiries
that come in betoken the increased interest which is
being evinced in Canada as a source of supply, and
while ordinary business transactions are temporarily
limited by the difficulties of transportation in addition
to import restrictions, Canadian packers, with proper
foresight and organization, should be able to secure,
and in certain lines permanently retain, trade which
was previously done with other countries.

Canada Benefitted By High Prices
Forest L. Appleby, manager of the foreign exchange department of thc Union Bank of Canada at
Aew York, says that one of the effects of the war, so
tar as Canadian finances are concerned, has been that
m spite of the enormous expense of upkeep of the
Canadian Expeditionary forces, the prices received
tor Canadian produce have been so uniformly high
that financially the country is in belter-shape than for
many years past.
He explains that the banks are in a particularly
liquid position, owing to the falling of what was the
normal trade before the war, and'the vast increases
m what might be termed "war trades," since the outbreak of Hostilities. The cause of this is that the
governments of Europe are largely cash customers
and even when not paying cash, deposit high-grade
securities, for which a ready market is to be found.
Just now Canadian banks have unusually ample funds
available for short term investments. This is owing
in part to the fact that the Royal Wheat Commission
New Industries From Vegetable Fats
C. P. R. Working Out A Solution
THE seriousness of the food situation throughout the
world has been frequently emphasized by the press
and no one disputes the fact that the world seems
steadily marching toward a period of starvation. Efforts
are being made in all civilized countries along different
lines to avert such a disaster and to devise means of
overcoming a situation created by the war.
There have been food crisis in nearly every great
war, and these have frequently given rise to new processes of sufficient merit to be continued in peace times,
as for exampje, the manufacture of sugar from sugar
beets, and the substitution of vegetable for animal fats
as in oleomargarine.
Oleomargarine has heen under discussion in Canada
for some time and needs no further comment, except
perhaps to point out that under the present regulations
prohibiting the manufacture of this material there are
undoubtedly many in the Dominion who are not getting
the fats requisite for the proper maintenance of the
body, because they are unable to purchase this fat. at the
present price of butter. In many countries where oleomargarine has oeen used for years a larger and ever
larger percentage of vegetable fat Is being substituted
for the animal fat, and the day seems not far distant
when hydrogenated vegetable oils may entirely replace
animal fats for certain food purposes.
Arthur 1). Little, Limited, the organization of analytical chemists which on the Instigation of Lord Shaughnessy has been making an exhaustive study of Canadian
natural resources have been Investigating the utilization
of vegetable fut in materials which have proven satisfactory substitutes for cream for all purposes excepting
butter making nnd where whipped cream is required.
The material is especially adapted to the manufacture of
Ice cream and can be produced much cheaper than cow's
cream, a quantity of which through the use of such, a
substitute may be made available for other food purposes.
Dry milk, while a very Important article of commerce, is known chiefly to bakers, hotels and ice cream
manufacturers. A good product is now being manufactured in Ontario, but recognizing the advisability of
establishing drying plants in smaller units and ot a size
that could be supported by the local community, work
is being carried on with this requirement In mind. The
Installation of such plants would make it possible for
dairymen to find a constant market, although tbey might
be located at a distance so great from large centres of
population as to make it impossible to sell liquid milk.
For example1, in Alberta the dairy Industry is growing
and would undoubtedly develop to a wonderful extent if]
drying plants requiring small amounts of capital could
bc established.
The same is true of vegetables, and mixed farming
would be encouraged in the west if the farmer had a
home market for his produce. Milk is 85% water, and
many vegetables run as high or even higher in thein
moisture content. They are perishable, require special
handling, and a large portion of the crop Is composed of
sizes too small to market. There are objections to the
dryingj processes now employed and it is important, to
perfect a method of drying vegetables and yet leave
them fresh. Such material when placed in warm water
soon absorbs the * olsture which hu heen removed, and
the vegetables when cooked in the water In which they
have been pluced give the same results as do fresh vegetables. The drying process must leave the vegetable
with its natmt-1 color and with all the flavor with which
lt comes from the garden. The dried product mutt not
be cooked or discolored, and should provide the house-
iwife with a cleaned, peeled, ready-prepared material,
tohich will keep without refrigeration or special storage,
and enable her to avoid all the losses which accompany
tbe use of most fresh material.
The utilization of that portion of fruits which is considered below standard, and, therefore, unprofitable to
ship, in another problem which Is receiving the consideration of Arthur D. Little, Limited. For example, a considerable part of every apple crop falls into sueh
classifications as windfalls, seconds and thirds, poorly
formed or poorly colored fruit, and as this proportion of
the crop increases the selling price of the standard
apple also Increases. Methods for preparing a high
grade sweet cider are under consideration, as well as the
production of other apple products to utilize the portion
ti the crop considered unsaleable or inferior by fruit

The desirability of increasing the food content of
farm produce is obvious. It may be pointed out that th*
starch content of potatoes grown tn Oermany is much
higher than that of potatoes on this continent, twioe as
high ln fact. The cultivation of certain hybrids producing larger and better varieties of berries, etc., should
also be encouraged, and while this phase of the problem,
scarcely comes within the province ot the chemist, It is
under consideration as a part of the general study.

You Can Always
Depend on  the
Street Car Service
In fair weather or foul, in busy hours or
slack, the street cars run for you because the
street railway is an organized system���a
business, run intentionally to serve you.
In rush hours, on holidays, at large gatherings, it is the street railway which assumes
the responsibility for carrying the people.
For cheap rides, between distant points in
the city for a nickel, the people must go to
the street railway.
Your children ride free or for half fare only
on the street car.
In many parts of the city���the non-paying
parts���the street railway must give service
at less than cost.
This company desires to go on giving these
features of service realizing the dependence
of the public upon them but must have the
support of the public in the paying parts of
the transportation system.

to a yood address and to have procured me thc honor of your amiable
private and  Interesting reply.
You do not turn the other cheek
to the smiter. That is well; his intention, you admit, was not to bc disagreeable. And your gentle letter of
reproach received today is irreproachable. Pity it is private, for I
am not averse to hearing or publishing reflections at my own expense;
or that are meant to take me down
a peg However, you command my
fairness of tone, and you believe that
when you show me I am misinformed and have misjudged, that I will do
the right thing. Thanks. Of that
you may be sure. And you ask me
to supplement, and correct, and explain. In honor, I cannot refuse.
Though ynu may then wish me to
explain my explanation. The apology, I trust, may not be an aggravation  of thc offence.
It appears then that, by my little
lay sermon I have "misunderstood or
misconstrued" your own. If so. I am
very sorry. And at the same time I
am glad. And I accept here with
alacrity the more charitable view of
your discourse, which you insist
upon, and make, without reserve, the
correction which that imposes. Author's corrections cannot be f|ues-
tioiieil. And the speaker is the supreme judge of his own intentions
But the version in the "World,"
which I have before me, (wliich is a
narrative and not verbatim) with its
flaming headlines; and the scathing
leading editorial based thereon; and
the first impressions of your own
Startled parishioners���for first impressions are not always wrong���
must confirm the general view, and
constitute  my  apology.
Tn other words, as happens to all
of us at times, you have been misunderstood.
What you meant to concede then
was,���that to err is human. And that
those who can make mistakes should
also be able to make allowances.
That, I gather from your amiable
letter, was the real spirit and intent
of your sermon. The lesson you
wished Ur convey, you say, was that
of the gentle founder of our religion.
Rut the other spirit, and the erroneous impression carried away ("and
brought to me by good people I had
not previously knownl, was the denunciatory, the unrelting, the "holier
than thou" attitude; that old New
England, Puritan spirit, which prevailed before the birth of your esteemed sect; an intolerance which
still survives and emerges now and
then, with its extreme reactionary
and nefast influence on our art, our
society, our prosaic civilization and
mr  Anglo-Saxon  race.
Hut that was not your attitude;
and as usual, some one has blundered. And how can we marvel then,
that the action aud motive of a poor
politician and cabinet minister is severely judged, when thc very words
of a preacher is misconstrued by his
parishioners, then and therc within
I sound of his own voice.
Tbe pastor's lot, I know, is not a
happy one. No one, in these trying
days, should ever make it harder.
For no other agency has been found
to fill his ill-paid role or take his
public place.
Certainly his work cannot be done
nor his pews filled by untimely shows
like the Old Court House Tabernacle; nor by Billy Sunday; any more
than by Barnum's circus, nor the vulgar War Dance Mardi Gras; (held
on a Saturday'); nor the Vancouver
Exhibition. Here is something for
you to denounce. Surely better use
than these could be found, for public
and private funds���while pastors
preach, and���

A imoking concert was held last
night in ihc rooms of llie Caledonian
Society in honor of iiu- president.
Dr. J. R. Atkinson, who is leaving
for the front as one of lhe officers
..I lhe Medical Corps. There was a
large attendance, the rooms being
packed lo overflowing, Mr. R. (_.
McPherson, one of the former presidents, presented Dr. Atkinson, on
behalf of the members, with a handsome travelling bag as a token of
the esteem and. affection in which
Dr. Atkinson is held by them, In
making the presentation Mr. McPherson paid an eloquent tribute to
the sterling qualities of Dr. Atkin
son. No one had worked harder or
more ungrudgingly for the interests
of the society than the Doctor and
it was due to his untiring efforts and
zeal that the society occupied the
proud position it was in today. In
concluding Mr. McPherson made a
feeling reference to Dr. Atkinson as
a man and as a physician and stated
that no doctor could be better loved
by his patients and none would be
more missed than he. In handing
over thc bag Mr. McPherson counselled the Doctor to "pack up your
troubles in your old kit bag and
smile,  smile,  smile."
The high admiration and warm regard in which Dr. Atkinson is held
by the members of thc society was
also testified to by Mr. A. S. Matthew. He referred to the doctor's
unselfishness, his geniality and his
unfailing courtesy at all times. It was
largely due to his efforts that the
world-famous Caledonian games had
been such an unqualified success, and
whilst tlic doctor was going to thc
front to help iu a great cause and
to alleviate the sufferings of those
splendid soldiers on the battlefield,
it was, nevertheless, to be regretted
that he could not bc present to see
the results of his labors in August
by presiding at the Caledonian games
to be held tllis year in the Athleti
Park. Mr. Matthew concluded by
saying that they all looked forward
with eager expectancy to the time
when Dr. Atkinson would return covered with glory and they would give
him a welcome in the old Scottish
fashion which he would remember
the rest of his life.
Mr. Donald Downie also spoke and
referred briefly to the fact tllat this
was the first time tllat a society had
sent its president to the front to assist the British Empire. He also
gave an interesting description of the
places where the fighting was taking
place and which Dr. Atkinson would
no doubt, see in the near future.
A grcat ovation greeted Dr. Atkinson when he rose to reply. In a
speech of unaffected but charming
eloquence and simplicity he thanked
the members of the Caledonian Society from the bottom of his heart for
their tribute to him that night. To
a man of his nature it was hard to
adequately express his feelings but
he wanted them to know how much
he appreciated their gift and the sen
timents which had been expressed,
was with a feeling of pride that he
bail seen the society grow until il
had attained its present position and
he hoped that when he uas gone the
good work would be carried on and
lhal   when   lie   came   back   he   would

Origin and Meaning of "Tariff."
A well-known free-trade newspaper in the United Kingdom recently
came dangerously near breaking the
"political truce," wlleu it launched
out into a consideration of the origin
of the word "tariff.'' Tariff and Tar-
ik, it declared, discursively, were two
Eighth Century Moorish Chieftains,
who landed on the coast of Spain,
near Gibraltar, and, having settled
themselves, proceeded to commit piratical depredations on shipping pass
ing through the straits. After a time
Tarif found it more convenient to
exact blackmail on a fixed scale of
payment���thence called a tariff. The
paper, however, saves the situation,
as far as the tariff reformer is concerned, by adding that, according to'
others,  tariff comes from  an  Arabic!
Life Time

word  meaning a declaration, not
mere rankers, must touch elbows, en
camaraderie; eyes front; to the common foe; all soldiers of the king.
And no sniping in the wrong direction. Even though a young officer
may have been unhorsed, and lost
his epaulettes. What of it? He shall
take bis place in the ranks and earn
them again.
For in that public service men die
hard. Political assasination unfortunately is not a punishable offence.
And though long planned it is not
easily consumatcd. The hunter's
dart, alas! may be helped a little by
a sermon. But there is vital force
and recuperative elements in human
sympathy. And most of us still retain it, I am sure.
Men are not all wolves to their
fellowmen. There are two schools
and methods of conduct among them
���as among the lower animals���so-
Let me illustrate. I leave you to
draw the conclusion. In some herds,
we are told, when a comrade is
wounded he is not abandoned to the
wolves. He may rise and recover.
The others make a circle around him.
They put him, meantime, in the centre and turn their antlers outward,
'ike a living rampart against all comers.
But the naturalist tells us of another species that in such cases stop
and turn their horns inward against
the wounded stag and gore him to
There is no moral to this. One
must leave something to the imagination.
Preaching at Bournemouth, on the
need for national sacrifice, Dr. J. D. 1
Jones said: "We must all of us sacrifice if we are to tide over the next
two or three critical months. The
man who plants two rows of potatoes
where he only planted one last year
is truly helping England. And we
should eat less. Probably in peace
time wc were all of us eating far
more than was necessary, certainly
far more than was good for us. The
man who in this hour lives lavishly
and luxuriously, is a sinner against
bis laud. The man or woman -who
refuses to be rationed, or who goes
on exactly as in the days of peace
is guilty of a particularly mean and
contemptible   piece  of selfishness."
