built for the present, merely a temporary span, carrying a single line of car-track. It is impossible for
the street railway to conform their double-track system to this single-track, unless money is spent on putting in the necessary switches, which will involve a
sum of $1,600.00.
The B. C. E. R. contend that as the city owns
these tracks, and charges the Company rental for
them, the city should put in the necessary facilities
to re-open traffic on the bridge. The city contends
on the other hand, that if the B. C. E. R. wants to
open traffic on the bridge, they will have to put the
tracks in shape themselves for-the benefit of the city,
who are the owners of the track.
While the city is haggling with the Company,
thousands of people are deprived of their car service, and the usefulness of the bridge is much reduced.
The city's treatment of this case is typical of the
manner in which this year's Council have handled
many of the affairs of the public,  -
SHALL THIS WOMAN HANG?
IN the season when the families in Kamloops are
buying their Christmas turkeys, bringing in the
yule logs, and setting up their Christmas trees���
on the day the Christmas, services in the churches
are being announced in the papers, Elizabeth Coward will be taken from the death cell in Kamloops
jail to a wooden scaffold some fourteen feet high, a
hay fork rope will be fastened about her neck with
the cunning death slip-knot, the other end of it will
be tied to a beam above, and this woman will drop
through the trap-door to what is to be hoped a quick
death.
Mrs. Coward was sentenced at the Clinton assizes to be hanged by the neck until she is dead for
murdering her husband. She is to be executed, if
the sentence of the court is carried out, at daylight
on the 23 rd of December.
Circumstantial evidence was brought forward
proving to the satisfaction of the jury, at least, that
the woman had put a bullet into her husband's brain,
killing him. The crime is supposed to have taken
place at a lonely pre-emption, near Fort St. James.
The Coward woman is a mother of several children, and is of middle age. We do not know the
facts governing the murder case. They were not
reported in the press, but whatever the facts were
surely some treatment could be resorted to which
would save the country from the spectacle of a woman hanging by her neck from a two-inch rope.
From the scant information available, James Coward and his wife had taken up a pre-emption away
back from the frontier. There must be some good
in a woman who would accompany her husband into the forest about Fort St. James, with the point
in view of helping hew out a home. They led a
lonely life back in there, they had hardships likely,
and trials. Women under such circumstances have
been known to suffer attacks of insanity. Loneliness sometimes brings on insanity. Drudgery and
ill-health work peculiar antics with women's minds.
Apart from the plea which might be put up in
explanation of the shooting; assuming that this woman killed her husband in cold blood; taking it for
granted that she deliberately and maliciously, in
full possession of her faculties planned the assassination of her husband, surely some treatment might
be meted out to her other than sentence to that barbarous trip of the air dance.
munication for the firemen, the people pay the salaries of firemen and put out money on expensive fire
halls. All the time the fire insurance people soak
them by increasing the rates.
A prominent insurance man in the city stated to
the SATURDAY CHINOOK that our stand
upon the question of fire insurance is well taken. He
states, however, that a remedy cannot be supplied
by the agents in the city. The remedy must come
from higher up.
Local fire insurance is controlled largely in the
east. Hence little consideration is given to the householder on the coast. It is up to the people to make
the municipal authorities take up the problem of
cheaper fire insurance, force the companies to come
down, or undertake a municipal system of insurance.
In these days the people are called upon to make
many sacrifices in the interests of the empire. Many
hundreds of thousands of dollars could be saved
to the people of Vancouver and the surrounding
municipalities yearly if the community were to receive a proper and equitable insurance adjustment.
Here is' an economy which loyal people should
strive to have brought about.
house.
Cunningham knows about as much about fishes
as he does about horses. One thing that he does
know is that working for the Government is profitable, but working the Government is more profitable.
It is probably owing to his connection with the
fishing industry that the horse buyers for the Dominion Government at New Westminster, headed by
Cunningham, started a hatchery for war steeds.

NIETSCHE'S GOSPEL���LOOK OUT! __
HERE is what a supposedly good Canadian
said the other day to the writer: "Supposing
your neighbor falls down on the street in
front of your house, breaks a leg and writhes in
pain���supposing he is drunk���and people pass him
by and pay no attention to him. Then supposing
you go out, lift him up tenderly, carry him home,
put him to bed, set his leg and get a doctor. Supposing all these things, do you think you would be doing an act of brotherly rove, an act of human kindness, carrying out the idea of the story of the Samaritan?"
"Well," the writer replied, "I would let others
judge as to that, but if a man were to handle me in
such a manner and assist me when I was unable to
assist myself, I would say that he was indeed a good
Samaritan."
"Nonsense," said this man. "You would go out
and help that poor devil in merely because he was a
nuisance to you, lying out there on the sidewalk.
His groans would annoy you, the spectacle of the
man lying there would annoy you. It would irritate you. You would hoist him in to get him out of
the way, and incidentally with the idea of raising
yourself in the estimation of the neighbors. You
would do it from an absolutely selfish point of view.
So would I, so would anyone who is human. We
would please our vanity by saying that we did it
from a high and holy and charitable motive. Some
of us would do it to get the man's money, some of
us to get the good graces of his wife. All of us
would do it from a purely selfish motive."
Our friend may not know it but he is filled up with
the philosophy of Mr. Nietsche. Nietsche would
strike out the story of the good Samaritan, and in
striking it Out would strike at the base of all that is
beautiful and worth while in this world.
"$150,000 FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES"
ITIZENS of British Columbia will watch
with interest a certain case at present being
heard before the courts at Victoria. It is an
action by a coal company against one, John Ar-
buthnot et al. The SATURDAY CHINOOK
is not familiar with the facts of the case, but in the
records placed before the court by the coal company, it was shown that at a certain time, the coal
company granted $150,000 of its stock "for political purposes." The coal company had large concessions from the Provincial Government, and it is
therefore assumed that this $150,000 item was in
consideration of certain favors from the Government.
Now the name of Dr. H. E. Young, Minister of
Education and Provincial Treasurer, has entered
into the case. He received from some source or
other $100,000 worth of stock in the coal concern.
Mr. Arbuthnot, according to the PROVINCE
report, went into the box and swore that he had
made the Hon. Dr. Young a present of this stock.
He had known the doc ever since the days of 1884.
They were boys together and he liked  the doc.
"Doc," said Arbuthnot one day, "if I ever take
up anything in British Columbia, I'll let you in on
it,"   At least this came out in evidence.
Apparently the doctor got in good and strong.
It is to be hoped thauDr. Young secured his stock
in the company in the regular, legitimate manner. In
the meantime the case will be followed with interest.
PROHIBITION IN RICHMOND
RICHMOND Electoral District has been in
vaded by the People's Prohibition Part)
and organization work has been undertaker,
with a view of having the riding take its place 01
the proper side of the list. Richmond included thai
part of South Vancouver, from Fraser Street tt
Point Grey, the entire municipality of Point Gre\
and the municipality of Richmond.
In South Vancouver there is not one liquor license
in Point Grey the saloons have been closed, and in
Richmond there is no licensed premises saVe those
few grog shops at Steveston.
Here is an electoral division which is alread\
practically a prohibition area, and it is not unlikely
that the people, of all parties, will rise to drive oul
from the community forevermore all vestiges of the
liquor business.
The prohibition people have formed a strong executive, headed by Mr. J. F. Noble. Meetings
will be held, and the question of temperance brought
to the attention of all the people. Mr. Noble is
backed by a strong committee of twenty-two men,
drawn from all parts of the electoral division, among
them being: Messrs. C. Spencer, Kerrisdale; Thomas Kidd, Lulu Island; Mr. Eastabrook, Eburne.
Reeve A. G. Harvey, Mr. B. George Hansuld,
Shaughnessy Heights; Mr. Cecil Killam and William Winram- Shaughnessy Heights; Mr. John
Cuthbert, Mr. J. F. Grimmett and D. M. Grim-
mett, Dr. W. A. McConkey, Mr. R. H. Neelands.

THEY CAN'T VOTE BUT MAY HANG
RS. COWARD, the woman who is condemned to hang at Kamloops, is supposed
to have murdered a man. Detectives who
were men trailed her and put together the circumstantial evidence upon which she was condemned.
She came before a judge, who was a man, who gave
his judgment upon the law which was made by men.
The jury was made up of men. The Crown Prosecutor was a man and most of the witnesses were men.
If the sentence is carried out, a man will mount the
scaffold and place a rope about Mrs. Coward's
neck. A minister, who is a man, will read the service���or will start to read the Lord's Prayer. There
will be no necessity for concluding the prayer. A
sheriff will be present who is a man. The jailers
who will keep the death watch on Mrs. Coward's
cell will be men.
Under our laws women have few rights. She has
not the custody of her own children. Unless her
husband specially provides for her, upon his death
all his property may be taken away and given to his
blood relatives, the wife enjoying the same rights
here as an Indian aborigine's wife did in the old
days before the whites came. The wife cannot vote,
is not a citizen in the real sense of the word.
Mrs. Coward enjoyed none of the privileges of
citizenship in this Province, yet she suffers the extreme penalty of a man-made law.
WHY AMERICAN SYMPATHY IS NOT
WITH GERMANY
THERE can be little doubt of the fact that the
sympathies of the American people are witlr
the allies and against Germany, however we
may try to maintain neutrality in our official acts.
I have a letter from a German friends asking' me
why this is.
My friend alludes to "the pro-British press" ol
this country and hints that it is bought with English
gold. In the first place, the English are too conceited to care much what Americans think, and, in
the second place, they have other uses for their
money just now.
The trouble is fundamental. Germany and Austria stand for a kind of government which to Americans is intolerable. England, Italy, and France
stand for democracy. Russia, of course, is the exception. Individualism or liberty may be a very
dangerous thing, but Americans are crazy about it.
A world dominated by Prussian militarism or Austrian aristocracy would be to us impossible.
Secondly, Americans have been inexpressibly
shocked at certain German acts in this war. They
still refuse to believe these things are really German,
and call them Hohenz'ollern or Prussian.
I refer to th acts of "frightfulness," of plain wanton cruelty, and to the fact that German newspapers seem to glory in these, German intellectuals
seem to defend them, and the German people in
America seem to apologize for them. To us it is
incredible how civilized people can commit them,
still more unbelievable how they can support a ruling
class guilty of them.
There are deeds that no amount of "neutrality"
can look upon with complacence. Such are the violation of the solemn agreement to respect the integrity of Belgium, the unquestioned violence and horrors that characterized the German invasion of that
country and of northern France, the disregard of
that principle of war which dictates that attacks
should not be made upon non-combatants, the Zeppelin raids upon England where only women and
children were injured and no military advantage
gained, the whole submarine plan of warfare, where,,
instead of striking at the enemy's armed vessels,,
blows are directed at innocent fishing craft and passenger ships. I say nothing here of Germany's offenses toward the United States.
We have, known the German people and loved
them. We find it impossible to believe that they
are consenting to such monstrous barbarity. The
only way we can square the matter in our minds is to-

TALK OF THE magnificent resources of British
Columbia!    Seventy-five per cent of the people of
British Columbia know less about the  Province
than the average business man in Spokane.
* * *
SO LONG AS this condition obtains, British Columbia cannot expect to get the best out of herself.
Without co-operation and reciprocity among the
districts of the Province, the present order of things
must continue.
THIS SEGREGATION OF communities stops
the work of reform and the exploiters of the natural
resources of British Columbia take full advantage
of the condition.
BUT THE TIME is not far distant when the
mining camp spirit must give way to the community
spirit.
MR. S. S. TAYLOR'S speech on the submarine
AS AN INTRODUCTION to a series of debates which it is proposed will be held in the Liberal Rooms, Main Street, South Vancouver, during the winter months, an enjoyable evening was
spent Thursday night when the question of protection versus free trade was up for discussion. Messrs.
Winram and Lamond argued the point from the
high tariff side, and Messrs. McConkey and Kay
from the low tariff point. An animated debate
followed in which the audience also took part. Of
course the debate was purely academic, the parties
taking part in it all being pronounced free traders.
Make a note of this and be there at the Liberal
rooms���next time.

Canadians who put in a certain period under German

It is more than a popular impression that German-educated musicians of previous English training succeeded in
cultivating a certain foreign manner that has proved very
fetching in lhe box office. "My friend from India" illustrates thc weakness of human nature in chasing after
strange fads. Other professions have suffered from contamination with the teachings of the new Germanism. The
arrogance of German philosophy, "bordering on stupidity,"
as a noted professor recently said, has fooled some excellent men in thc college life of Britain, the United States
and Canada.
Hut there will be no doctors of philosophy made in Germany fur Britain for many years to come, and wc shall
hear of fewer advocates and much less of Germany's modern doctored philosophy for many years to come.
The war has knocked to pieces the foolish notion that
Germany was superior to other lands, or that her particular brand of culture was for the good of the world.
Mentally, physically, morally, or from any other standpoint, the evidence is conclusive that British training is
on a higher level than anything to bc found in Germany.

MR.  MARTIN  NOMINATED
The re-entry of Mr. Joseph Martin, at present a British
member of parliament, into the arena of Dominion politics,
is an event of inure than usual interest. lie has east in his
lot with the Liberals of British Columbia; more properly,
we should say, with one of thc factions, because from all
accounts, there are two distinct schools of Liberalism in
the Pacific Province, one to which Mr. Martin belongs,
and the other thc new Liberals.
Mr. Martin is a power on the platform, and, if elected,
will be a greater power in the Commons, It is inconceivable that, if elected, he will attempt to defend the misrule of Laurier, or countenance the continued abandonment of the old Liberal platform of 1894. He fell in the
political battle uf 1896 and the interests tllat overwhelmed
Sir Wilfrid shortly after were strong enough to sec that
Mr. Martin was kept out of the House, probably fearing
that he would demand performances in fulfilment of the
sacred pledges oi the party leaders and the party platform.
If Mr. Martin intends tu become a disturbing clement in
Canadian politics, his re-entry should be welcomed from
one end of Canada tu the other. From the standpoint of
ability he is probably without a superior as a debater on
the merits of a public question, and as a legislator, it is
only fair lu say that while he was virtually premier of
Manitoba he gave to this province the best reform government in its whole history. That was the verdict while he
ruled, and time has not changed thc opinion of those in a
position m judge of his administration, At Ottawa, whither he went prior tn 18%. as a result -if a bye-election,
he joined hands with the late Dalton McCarthy in upholding the provincial rights of this province, and was
admittedly one nf the dictators of the platform that swept
Canada for the Liberal party.���Winnipeg Evening Tribune.

LIFE WITHOUT  HONOR  UNKNOWN   IN
BELGIUM
A copy ha. been received uf the new grey book published a feu week- ago by tlu- Belgian Government, containing supplementary despatches dealing with the diplomatic crisis preceding the war.
A most interesting document is a despatch dated August
4, 1914, from Baron Beyens, the Belgian minister at Berlin, giving a summary of a dramatic conversation he had
on that day with 11,-rr von Jagow, the German foreign
secretary, relating to the German demand for leave of passage through  Belgium.    Ilerr von Jagow said:
"We have been compelled by absolute necessity to make
upon your government this demand. It is for Germany a
question of life and death. In order that she may not be
crushed, she must herself first crush France and then turn
against Russia.
"We have been informed that a French army is preparing to pass through Belgium in order to attack us on our
flank. We are bound to prevent such an attack. If the
Belgian army does not blow up bridges and allow us to
occupy Liege and itself retires to Antwerp, we promise not
only to respect Belgian independence and the life and property of the inhabitants, but also to pay you indemnity.
"It is with a feeling of extreme mortification (la mort
dans lame���the -eath in the soul) that the Kaiser and his
government have been obliged to lake this decision. To
myself it is the most painful step that I have ever taken in
all my career."
Baron Bayens' reply was "What would you say if wc
were to yield to a similar menace on the part of France?
Vou would say that we were cowards, incapable of defending our neutrality and of leading an independent life.
Hy way of acknowledgement of our loyalty you arc about
to turn Belgium into a battlefield between you and France.
Europe will condemn you and you will have Britain against
you, as she is one of the guarantors of our neutrality.
"One being pressed." Baron Bayens continues, "Herr
von Jagow admitted that wc could not reply to the German demand otherwise than in the way we did reply, and
that he understood our reply. He several times repeated
the expression of sorrow that things had come to such a
pass, but I replied that nations no more than individuals
could live without honor."���London Dailv News.

ensures thc freedom of the seas; it means supplies of food

uf all that our armies require. To our enemies it has
brought the utter destruction of their commerce destroyers, th annihilation of their foreign trade, and ihe slow but
resistless tightening of our grip upon their manufacture,
their industries and their entire economic life. It is under

OF COURSE
War Lord that Canada may be confidently expected to break int,, open
mutiny the first time it sets eyes ur
feet on the trenches. But you would
be wiser thereafter to keep quite a
number of miles away from those
same trenches���what time young Canada gets busy.
Perhaps I am inexact, as the official
bulletins have it. to insist inn much
up..n the youth nf Canada. Quite a
large percentage of the population
wears the Smith African war ribbon
���and you cannot be over and above
young if you wear that. Also. Canada has the shoulders and the step and
the eye of the man who has seen service���quite a large proportion nf her
���and you cannot improvise that in
six months' training. The Bosches
have learnt something already of the
business end of the Canadian bayonet;
they arc likely to learn more when
the present inhabitants take thc. trail.
Quite the must remarkable thing I
learned during my visit to Canada was
that such a thing as the Canadian ac
cent hardly exists. Very occasionally
you hear something of the Xew England twang; it is spoken, you will find
by- a young man who hails from Massachusetts  or   Maine.    Sometimes,  a-

There was a splendid attendance. tli>

Then   he   lay   still   till   I   roused   him.
then "Play thc game," 's what he
said;
He spoke no more, nor moved again.
and   I  knew  that  my  master was
dead.
And  1   watched ail  night  in  the starlight   that   played   on   the   agony
there.
But  burses and men   that  were  dying
writhed  in  pain   and   shrieked  in
despair.
Then the enemy caught me and held

And I had t,, fight in the ranks of the

I was struck by a friend of my master, 'twas his sword that laid mc

At the far end of the room is -.hown the Automatic   Divider,   and   overhead  the   Automatic
Travelling   "Provcr."
With the Automatic Divider., the doueh ts
ACCURATELY divided in loaves of FULL
and EQUAL Weight. The mechanical accuracy of this device assures YOU loaves of
UNIFORM SIZE and FULL WEIGHT.
The "rounder" shapes these loaves, without
the use of the human hand, ready for the
"proving" process. From the "rounder." the
loaves are automatically conveyed to the tr^v-
ellins  "PROVER."
This travelling "PROVER" is completely enclosed in glass. 2nd so regulated that the
bread remcins therein the full time necessary
and NOT ONE SECOND LONGER!
No other method of "proving" can possibly
give such UNIFORMLY perfect results.
From thi travelling "PROVER" the loaves
are conveyed into the AUTOMATIC
"MOULDER."
This device makes the grain and texture perfect to a degree impossible by hand labor, and
is a most important operation in the production of a perfect bread like "SMAX" and
SUNLIGHT"!
This is the ONLY "REAL" Automatic
Moulder in use in the Province of British

Modern Hygienic Dairy
Turner's Dairy is a Poem of Purity���The Product is not Touched

Treatment Make Turner's Milk the Premier
Food for Particular People
  ���
Clean, fresh, well-ordered; concrete
floors, tiled walls, running" water; free
from odor save the white clover suggestion from the cold, new milk in
thc bottling room of the premises���
to properly describe Turner's Dairy,
a poem of purity might be penned.
If Mr. Turner has been in the dairy
business for fifty year.-,, lie has surely
taken advantage of all the influences
making for the improvement of the
illdustryr and tit Seventeenth Avenue
may be found a dairy concern with
few peers possibly in the Dominion
'of Canada, Mr. Turner was born in
Prince F.dwaril Island, upon a farm.
All his life he has been associated with
dairying, and  he  has brought the lie-
em idea of dairy farming. The animals who browse in these months on
thc natural clover pastures, in winter
arc supplied with a diet of fodder and
uraiii and hay produced right on the
farm. The stables would do credit
to the average stables of an agricultural college. The milking is carried
on in absolutely sanitary surroundings
and the greatest care is taken to a-
void in anywise contaminating any
part of the large consignment which is
daily sent into the city.
due of the latest appliances to be
installed in lhe Turner plant, is the
bottling machine. Ihe only one of its
kind in this Province, brought in at
the  cost  of  several  thousand  dollars

nefit   of   hij   life   experience   and   the
experiences  of others  to  making  the
I industry  al   Seventeenth   Avenue   one
of lhe leading in  British  Columbia.
Eight hundred gallons of rich milk
from the Fraser Valley is taken into
the premises of Turner and Sons ev-
' cry morning. It is brought in in the
' usual sanitary cans, and from the time
that it is unloaded from the motors,
until it is delivered to the dnors of
the hundreds of patrons of the concern, this milk is not touched by human hands. The most modern machinery available is installed ill the factory, and the fresh milk, clarified and
pasteurized, is bottled under scientific conditions.A
The Turner people secure their milk
supplv from tlu- farms nf G. II. Evans
and E, A. Wells and others tit Sar-
dis. On this page may bc found an
illustration, showing the herds whn

From the horse stables to the front
offices, every inch of the concrete establishment at Seventeenth Avenue is
daily scrubbed out with clean water.
The stable equipment is in keeping
with the other appointments of the
place, even thc yard iu which the
wagons are parked is paved with

things considered, the proceedings
were conducive to making the convention a memorable one. and the outcome was viewed with mixed feelings
by a number of the delegates."
The KAMLOOPS SENTINEL
makes the following kindly reference
to Mr. Martin's nomination:
"It would be idle to affect satisfaction over the result of the nomination at Ashcroft on Saturday, and as
far as can bc judged it is equivalent
to dashing the Liberal hopes of victory in the Cariboo division. Even if
the convention had been conducted
on open genuine lines, and swayed by
men of the best type, and had then
in an honest and spontaneous manner
selected Mr. Joseph Martin as candidate, the fact would still remain that
the decision would be out of harmony
with a large volume of public feeling.
"It was not so. however, for the
methods followed, of wh'eh there was
a foretaste as the previous abortive
gathering, savor too much of what
would have been acceptable a few
years ago.
"There was a well engincefd movement to have Mr. Martin nominated,
and the costly and laborious effort has
succeeded.
"We do not express any opinion as
to Mr. Martin's knowledge of the procedure, but one side of it he was bound
to be familiar with, and so presumably

The Telephone Will
Save You Money
Figure it out. If you have no telephone, what
does it cost you, in actual coin, to go to the store
when you want something? If you go down town,
several hours are taken up. Apart from the monetary consideration, by using your telephone you
would have more time for other household purposes.
If you want to get your friends over for an evening, you have either to travel or send letters. Postage, envelopes and paper count up.
If you jot down little items of expense during a
month, you will probably find that they total to more
than the cost of a telephone.
The telephone actually pays for itself.
You will find it is not a luxury. On the contrary,
it is a necessity. The more you use it, the more you
will find it so.

round contest between Reeve Gold
and Councillor Russell coining off?"
;isked President Junes as the members
of the club gathered around the stove
for their weekly chat about municipal
and oilier matters. "It seems to me,"
lie remarked, "that the reeve will miss
a n;reat opportunity oi augmenting
the patriotic funds if he does not accept  Russell's challenge."
"You may bet your bottom dollar
Reeve Gold will nut accept Russell's
challenge," chimed in Citizen O'Urian.
"I shall never forget how he bolted
through lhe back door at Kalenberg
Hall during the by-election for the
reeveship in 1914. when ex-Reeve
Kerr and ex-Councillor Winram
mounted lhe platform and a scrap occurred as Gold's supporters tried to
eject them. Reeve Gold certainly
cut .1 poor figure that night; so you
may be pretty sure he will not accept
Russell's challenge."
"I Hi, but," said Citizen Mackenzie,
"the reeve explained his disappearance
from the platform on that occasion
by throwing the blame on the women,
who, he said, surrounded him and
kept him out of the fray."
"Perhaps!" remarked O'Brian. "The
fact remains that he disappeared when
the scrapping began; and while it is
true that he who runs away lives to
fight another day. I doubt if Reeve
Gold will be man enough lo take Russell at his word. The reeve's explanation about the women protecting him
seems weak to me���though it would
not he unlike Reeve Gold to hide behind the skirts of a woman when trouble threatened."
"There can be no, doubt that if
Reeve Gold accepted the challenge to
meet Councillor Russell in a twenty-
���round contest it would be almost as
big a drawing card as the Johnson-
Willard bout," said Citizen Robinson,
"and there would be no building big
enough in Vancouver to house .*>".
who want to see the contest. I warrant there would scarcely be a man in
Kritish Columbia who would not be
willing to pay from $1 to $10 to witness the contest. So, if the reeve wishes to assist any of the patriotic funds,
he has only to accept Russell's challenge to net any fund he cares to
mention anything from $2,000 to
$5,000."
"But would it not be undignified
for the reeve of a municipality like
South Vancouver to figure as oiie of
the principals iu a boxing contest?"
asked Citizen Browne.
"Undignified he Mowed," said O'Brian. "It would bc no more undignified than the spectacle Reevc Gold
dishes up at every, meeting of the
council. Is it dignified for a reeve
to sneer znd poke fun at a councillor
who happens to pronounce a word
different than Reevc Gold thinks it
should be pronounced? Is it dignified for a reeve to lie hack in his chair
at an open council meeting to grin
and guffaw like an inmate of one of
the establishments at Xew Westminster? Is it dignified for a reeve to
sneer al and insult councillors every
time he thinks be spies a chance?
You may cut out the dignified stuff.
There iN llo'tllillg dignified aboul
Reeve Gold or any of his proceedings."
"That is all very well in its way,"
replied Browne. "As you suggest it
is neither dignified nor courteous for
any reeve In act in lhe manner described; but you must admit that only
those who attend council meetings are
aware of the undignified and discourteous manner in which Reeve Gold
conducts the business  of South Van-

couvcr municipality. But, if he accepted Councillor Russell's challenge
il would be known all over 'the civilized world that South Vancouver has
a  reeve���"
"Who in spile of his discourtesy
was a  MAX." chimed in  O'Brian.
"I was going to say, but you inter-
rtipied, that South Vancouver has a
reeve who has so little respect for his
office as to make a public exhibition
of himself."
"Wellj goodness knows he is doing
that all the time," retorted O'Brian.
"Look at tllat advertisement he has
been publishing in the papers tbis
week, warning the public against accepting orders from councillors, which
have nut been sanctioned by the council and signed by himself. What is
thai bul *iu undignified and disrespectful proceeding?"
"0 Brian is quite right about that
advertisement," quietly remarked Mackenzie. "In publishing that advertisement Reeve Gold simply . illustrates
the Wry thing he aparently wished to
warn thc public against. He demonstrates his own guilt by incurring expense without the sanction of the
council."   ���
"Exactly," said Robinson. "And if
I Iwas a member of the council I
should certainly object to payment
out of public funds those advertisement accounts. If Reeve Gold intends to pay for them out of his own
pocket, all right, he is perfectly at liberty to do so; but, if he expected
me as a councillor to sanction any advertisement account of that kind���
advertisements published without the
authority of the council���he would
have another guess coming."
"Oh, I think you will find that
Reevc Gold will not mind paying for
the advertisements out of his own
pocket, if he thinks he has 'shown
up' the councillors," remarked Mackenzie. "That is one of Reeve Gold's
peculiar characteristics. He is a living
illustration of the old saying about
'cutting off one's'nose to spite one's
face.' Reeve. Gold is so peculiarly
constituted that he does not seem to
care how ridiculous he makes himself appear, or to what expense he
goes, so long as he thinks he tan
'show, 'em,' as he would say."
"The unfortunate thing is that
Reeve.Gold runs the business of South
Vancouver, on the same peculiar principle," said Robinson. "He apparently docs not mind what expense is. incurred by the municipality if by legal
or. other proceedings he can 'show
'em' what a stickler he is for formalities, legalities, etc. Take his action
in. connection with the municipal fiscal agents as a case in point. Before
that business is finished it is likely
to cost South Vancouver anything up
to $50,000 in one way or another. And
unfortunately it is. not an. isolated
ease. As was remarked a week or
so ago, I think it will he proved before the end of thc year that Reeve
Gold's administration this year has
cost South Vancouver.from $50,000 to
$100,000 more than there was any necessity for."
Tbe members then adjourned.

number of acres of crop that would
be donated were 1,000 acres. This estimate has been greatly exceeded, already farmers having agreed to devote the proceeds of the crop of 1.635
acres. The plan is for each farmer to
give the proceeds of one acre to the
fund, which will be used for national
purposes. Some fanners have, however, agreed to give the proceeds of
more than oen acre, which goes to
show the popularity of the movement.
