��"f^**r|."'> diem at a distance and they resent it; treat
J^ them familiarly and they do not respect you,"
writes Confucius of women, and in these words
sums up not only the chief characteristics but the chief
problems of the sex. Women reseat being kept at a distance from thc inner councils of men, yet if they arc ad-
/*> mitted to those councils they have no respect fur such
',' decisions as may be come to. They may be reasonable
but they are illogical. They are governed by sentiineni
and not by fact. It is the inevitable consequence of tlieir
sex; if it were otherwise they would not be women. Their
demand for the suffrage is really based on a sentiment
which ignores the faet of sex. Sentimentally- there is no
reason why women should not vote, shouldnot sit in legislatures, should not take their places on the bench. Logically there is no reason why they should do any of these
things, .not because they are not eapanle, but because they
have far more vital things to do. The world is not dependent on politicians, lawyers, or the franchise, but it is
dependent on women. ��� I f��they do not attend to thc vital
matters, but instead waste their time with the cumbrous
machinery of what isVknownas civilisation, civilisation will
<ease to advance-and the human race "will slowly die nf
sheer boredom. .For boredom is one'of the peculiar consequences of women assuming the privileges Of men. They'
become less: interesting, less attractive. They fling themselves into the maelstrom of prejudice and precedent,
, cajled politics..,.audi become immersed, in technicalities. ���

Their eloquence Wi explain the details ol a budget or solemnly dehatiugoili party caucus whether there are eilough
m tes on a 'petition to make il worthy of consideration?
It is no use attempting W argue- Whether' women should
have  votes or not.    Thai' is  a  fufilc  sport  indulged    in
iiiefly by those who lake an academic delight in discussing such questions as whether Mars is inhabited. There
are many sincere ..supporters among men of women's
rights. But those who argue must learnedly on the subject do not understand that it is a subject which does not
admit of argument, merely because neither side can prove
its case. Tliere may be two opinions just as there are two
opinions on tittt,suhkct of Mars. But opinions have no
real bearing oh ma^HkCiinccriiiiig w. men. \ huly is not
open to discussion. Moreover, refuse a woman anything
and you make her discontented. Grant her petition and
she begins to think what she asked for cannot have been
of much value. It is the same wilh woman's suffrage. Re-
iuse il and the women arc convinced it will lead them
straight to Paradise! gram it and they will tire of ii directly every oilier woman has ihc same thing. Anything
which is universal is common and woman instinctively
recoil from anything common, As long aa ihe suffrage
is out of reach they will continue to stretch for il.    Put.it
within   reach  of all  and   hardly  one   will  raise an  arm   to
mark a ballot.
Women complain that laws arc made I'm men and lhal
as long as men have thc sole powci nl miking laws ihe
law will deal unfairly with women.   Therefore they desire
the vole in order to compel men I" make laws for w eu.
But they forget in lhal case lhe women will have a certain
responsibility towards those laws ami iliai in consequence
no one woman will agree wilh the law- made hy another
woman. If women designed the laws every woman not
in tbe legislature would lurn up her nose al them. Whoever beard of a woman designing a new fashion? Bakst,
Worth. I'aquin are all men. and women vvill wear any
mortal thing they,design. Vet no law prevents a woman
becoming :t great dress designer. Who should know bow
to dress women but a womin? Vet women claim equality
heforc the law. Heaven help them. When did the law
not give them a privilege? Granted that the law of divorce
.is unfair to women, divorce is after all not the sole aim
and object of a woman's Ifie. Why this constant appeal
to tbe law? The law is man's only .protection against
woman. If it were not for the law she could spurn him,
casf him aside, make any use she chose of him, and finally
kill him just as the female spider docs wilh her beloved.
To oppose giving a vote to women is such waste of
time. Men know perfectly well that sooner or later women
will obtain a vote, so why not give them it al once. They
will treat jt exactly like a new baby. They are very proud
of babies until they begin to be a responsibility and divert
I them- from other matters of greater importance, such as
tbe latest fashions. Then they neglect them and finally.
like their creditors, almost forget them. For tbe first
year or so women would be very busy voting. They would
vote on every possible occasion and for every possible
thing. Then gradually they would lose tlieir enthusiasm.
A few sterner spirits might endeavor to rouse them to a
sense of their responsibilities but they would refuse to be
roused. The vast majority of them would be -quite satisfied to have the vote. They would like to put it in a nice
box and look at it every now and again���but use it? That
is the point. No woman will ever do any thing lor herself if she is certain she can get a man to do it for her.
Most women at some time or another in their lives can
accomplish this. Those who cannot are the ones who will
grimly carry the banners of woman's rights through the
embattled hosts of men's prejudices. They, alas! are the
tragic sufferers of their sex.    They are the martyrs of
HT HE Saturday Chinook, the weekly which has held the attention
of thousands of readers throughout British   Columbia   since
1911, with this issue gives way to an entirely  new publication,
which will be known as THE STANDARD.
THE STANDARD will be issued every week and will carry
many of the features which have made the Chinook one of the
brightest papers in Western Canada.
Politically THE STANDARD will be independent and its
policy will be one of co-operation with all forces working for the
advancement of the best interests of the Province.
THE STANDARD will lend its editorial columns to the furtherance of the best interests of the community, not of any particular personality or party. Our advertising columns win fee.lit the
service of all legitimate business.
THE STANDARD has taken over the advertising contracts
and .circulation of the Saturday Chinook and has also purchased
the circulation of The Globe.
While, new/capital'is being introduced into the business, THE
STANDARD will be under thesame management aS the old paper.
It will be published at the old stand, 426. Homer Street, and will be
printed in the most up-to-date printing establishment on the
Pacific Coast.    Job Printing..will.be carried on,by the owners.
The Standard Printing and Publishing Company.

Old friends and customers* of the Chinook are invited to cooperate in making THE STANDARD a worthy successor to a
,j'iejjy.spapftr. which, during .the many years of its publication; bore
itself wilh honor.    ' '
civilisation, ihc lonely women struggling againsl ihe disabilities of iheir sex. Disabilities, forsooth, imposed upon
lliciu by their own .sc\' and no oilier! Women are not
rebelling againsl man made laws. That is a subterfuge,
a mere pretence, Tl is tlie veil which clothes the cause.
They arc really rebelling againsl their own prejudices,
against what Ihey would willingly believe to he right, if
only for centuries they had not been lold il was wrong.
That is why women are s,, mysterious, so fascinating,
so utterly impossible t" understand. The essential basis
of the movement to obtain a vote for women is never
mentioned in polite society. Miss Sylvia Pankhurst has
no hesitation in writing about ii in thc public press bm no
mere man would dare follow her example. Besides Miss
Pankhurst is so brilliant, so clever and so sure of herself
that she has no need of polite society. But the average
woman who speak-" on lhe average platform about lhe
wrongs of women ami the*disabilities they suffer at tils
hands of men would never dare say lhat it was entirely due
to their own cowardice and prejudice, Who is it points
the finger of scorn al women who have unhappily committed a cardinal error!' Is il men; Some men, perhaps,
fanatics who continual!) mouth their moralit) and pocket
anything ihey can steal from iheir neighbors so long as
they arc not fi unci out, Some so-called m 011 reformers
whose conception of morality is dullness, bul whose conception of business is successful theft. Bul ihe greal majority of men never inquire into a woman's past, or future.
They are willing lo he satisfied with the present and they
realise thai any one may make a mistake, bul that .is no
reason why they should he eternally condemned therefor.
If it were not for their own sex few women would be
afraid to face men. 11 is women, not men, they fear. They
know their capabilities in the line of inhumanity.
Woman is undoubtedly woman's greatest enemy. Man
is not half such a tyrant as he is painted. His greatest
crime is his indifference to tbe matters which women consider of the greatest vital importance. But man is far
more of a primitive beast than Woman. Man has been tbe
hunter, woman the hunted; man has been tbe protector,
woman the protected from tbe first days when humanity
emerged from tbe slime of chads and began to prey on the
weaker animals around it. Man fought for his place in
tbe world, wonian claimed it. Man hunted for food, woman prepared it. Man tried to teach woman what was
good food and what was not fit to eat, but woman insisted
on making her own experiments. If-she liked something
she wheedled man until he eitherishared it with her or obtained it for her. Even in the Garden of Eden Adam believed what be waSv told and considered an apple poisonous until Eve wheedled him into eating one. Ko man
would deny today that the experiment was well worth
while, seeing all the exciting things which have happened
since. Man has experienced from the very earliest days
the results of womens' intuition. Therefore if women
have an intuition that they desire the vote, why should man
worry his head about it? The vote in the bands of a woman cannot be as potent an influence as that original apple
in the fair hands of Eve. It may lead to new discoveries,
it may lead to a new plane of civilisation. Having shared
the apple, why not share the vote? It is merely narrow-
minded prejudice which would deny women anything they
really desire.
But prejudice or no prejudice, there it is. and ii seems
quite likely that if our great and wise premier, xthe Hon.
William Jay Bowser, believes he can gain a few votes
at the next election bj proclaiming a referendum on whether a woman in British Columbia shall or shall not vote,
he vvill so proclaim, The man tllat votes Nay will only
condemn himself to a long and serious agitation, ll should
be earned 'unanimously For some time after the matter
is thus disposed of, no doubt our legislators will be overwhelmed with all kinds of proposal- which will -weep
them into spasms of virtuous legislation. I'.ui having obtained the vote, women vvill see lo it that they obtain the
right i" sii in the legislature. That would no di ubl cause
considerable embarrassment to some of sn' legislators
whosi minds would nol be as nimble witted as a woman's.
Bui the admission of women would undoubtedly email
more honest administration, il the women were at all attractive. Our chivalrous legislators would hati i��> "put
over" a woman the sort of things the) put ovi r" iln som
nolcni public. Still legislation wouli be spasmodically
virtuous ami therefore controlled cntirelj lv temporary
sciitiinciii. which, if cmotionall* aroused, i- akin t i hys
teria. line .ear the public would hi barred n'om coffee
becau-e ii was had for the nerves, the next from eating
grape unit because ii was a needless extravagance.
Imagine a really preiiv woman up for election.' She
would gel ill by all enormous majority. Every man with
red blood in his veins would insist oil voting for her whatever her views. Many women might vote against her
simply because she was attractive. Most women hale
an attractive woman. When she first took her seat in
the house tbe premier would probably move tbe adjournment so that he might take her oul to dinner, and try and
coax her into supporting him. There would he ho more
Conservative or Liberal parties; There would be males
and females. The sex war which Eugene Brieux forsees
would be started. The men's party would consist of all
tbe attractive women and of all the men. except some curmudgeons who disapprove of all women on principle,
chiefly because they have been disappointed in them. The
woman's party would consist of the aforesaid Curmudgeons
acting in conjunction, but strictly on pre-arranged terms,
with al! tbe women who had a grudge against men or their
own sex. It is of course obvious that when women are
v.llowed to sit in the halls of legislation they will prove
a disruptive element. There is a woman senator in some
southern American state. She appears from her photographs to be a nice, capable woman to have about the
house. "Nice capable" explains everything. She may be
a widow without encumbrances, or a spinster, or she may
be a married woman with responsibilities of all kinds. For
the moment memory doth not serve. Whatever she may
he she is above all a senatoress. Not a wife, nor a mother,
but a senatoress. Think of it. You have got to think of
it���in fact you have got to get used to it. Whether this
particular woman is a disruptive element or not. history
doth not relate. But multiply her several times and you
will introduce an element of discord into your legislatures
compared to which Messrs. Brewster and Macdonald in
the British Columbian parliament are the purest harmony.
It obviously must be so. One woman or even two women would not make a very material difference although
they would alter tbe lace of the house. But half a dozen
women acting together or separately would soon have
the whole house in a state of nervous prostration. They
would vol,- entirely according to the dictates of their
sentiments. They might hold the balance of power if they
stuck together. Fortunately this is an extremely unlikely
contingency. The cut of a new legislative blouse, lhe style
of a legislative hal, would settle matters if nothing else
would. The premier would have to be continually buying
new hats i��� ,���-,|,.r ,,, obtain the support he needed. The
minister of the Fashion Department would be more powerful and dispense more patronage than tbe Minister of Public Works does today. A woman cannot resist a new hat.
lhe premier at a particular crisis would not be facing his
opponents on the floor of the house, but facing the shop ,-
windows on Government Street. If a woman were given
a seat in the cabinet every other woman would be jealous
"i her. lu these days a minister can become a knight. In
those a woman might become a lady. "Lex talionis" would
be changed to "Sex talionis." N'o married man or woman
would be eligible for parliament lest there should be col- "
lusion between man and wife jf both sat in the same bouse.
A man would not dire to vole against bis wittiest be.im-
peril his whole life. There would he no such thing as
official secrets. A woman could not keep a secret from
her husband or her worst enemy���another woman.

Thai is why men arc so foolish when they try and argue
seriously whether women should have the vote or not.
They treat it as a serious problem lo he gravely debated.
Il is not; it is just tbe opposite. It is the finest entertainment yet devised for proving to the sexes how dependent
they are on each other. But thc serious question which
all women and all men must face is summed up in life itself.
Is woman to be denied the right to live and give life just
because she is unable to find a man who desires to marry
her? Is woman, who may bc economically independent
of man. to be atrophied in this fashion? Is she to droop
and wither and finally perish knowing that she bas never
had any opportunity to really live. Some women like
some men, may not deem tbis the kernel of the problem.
But for tbe great majority of men ami women that is the
problem and no other. Let the mind pause and attempt
to pierce the veil which bides the mystery of life. That,
veil must be approached reverently and in no spirit of
levity. It bides the Holy of Holies and those who realise
its sacrcdness and its seriousness also realise that only
women can raise it. Men are almost helpless until women
themselves throw down the barriers of sex. And when they
do that what will  they  substitute for  the  barriers?
But there is *io need to despair. It would bc absurd to
imagine that the world is going to pieces just because
the people in it are very foolish at times. If they were
not foolish they would not be so pleasant.   Thc foolish-

ness for which there should be no torglvencss is that which
makes life such a mournful business. Tliere are some
people who harp on the truism that life is the road to the
grave and that therefore everyone must live as if they
were at a funeral. Such people are really professional
undertakers to the joyousness of life. They lead a horrible
existence. You can distinguish them by their furniture.
It is as unbeauiiful -and heavy as their souls. Life is
really a bright and joyous thing. The problem is to bring
that brightness and joy into everyone's existence. Women
are the essence of life. They make it possible and possibly
mar it���at times. The fatal error is to attempt to judge
women by any standard. There is no standard for women
and Heaven forbid that man in his mania for efficiency
should attempt to standardise them. "Keep them at a
distance and they resent it, treat them familiarly and they
do not respect you." Confucius knew what he was talking
about and what he wrote 2500 years ago remains true today. Woman is a paradox and a paradox may bc absurd
in appearance but beautiful in fact.
IT is interesting to peruse the daily reports from the
city hall. This week some of the city fathers developed
a strong desire to save the city money and immediately
began to pare down the payroll at the city hall.
In one case a clerk getting sixty dollars a month was
removed from office. A committee was appointed to
investigate thc janitors at the ancient building. Stenographers are being considered as possible material to
throw overboard from the civic ship.
How bold the city fathers are when it comes to dealing
severely with the little fellows. But how meek and mild
some of them are when Jim Hill or Mann and Mackenzie
begin to poke around tbe hall!
As pointed out by the NEHS-ADVERTISER some
days ago, the city fathers are showing signs of giving way
to the Great Northern Railway in accepting a $250,000
station building at False Creek when the agreement called
for a $500,000 building.
We have a majority in the council prepared to let Hill
have his own way in regard to the building of the terminal. These arc the same men who would cut down thc
stenographers' salaries and fire all the janitors in the name
of economy.

New Bowser Land Policy the Frenzied Folly of a Dying Administration
Of all the rotten legislation passed by the Howser-^'c-
liriile administration this new land policy of Hon. W. R.
Ross is probably the crudest attempt of all to dress crime
up in the garb of virtue. It is the desperate deed of men
trying to escape tbe vengeance of an outraged electorate.
THE plan to force upon the merchants of British Columbia a Saturday afternoon half holiday is scarcely
one that is fair to the majority of the retail merchants
of the Province.
The system they have in England entitles every clerk
to half day off during tbe week. But the day may be
named by the employer. It would seem that such a system might well be copied by British Columbia. While
employees of the retail stores are entitled to every consideration and protection, little good would result from
the shutting off of all trade on Saturday afternoon.
Saturday has a place in the affections of the Canadian
buying public. Especially is it the choice of all days in the
week for the many families from out of town. It is particularly lhe day for lhe men and the big day of ihc week
for the firms who cater to men's trade. It is ihe day for
ihc provision merchant, necessarily so. Saturday should
he bargain day.    ll is the day for lhe working families.
Bowser says he is going to give all the soldiers a vote
and Ross says he is going to take 2.700,000 acres of agricultural lands away from the speculators and give it to
the soldiers, The party press in making the announcement callously linked the two statements in the same paragraph and the public are expected to accept it as the
pooled wisdom of a business administration, it is in
reality the most brazen attempt to corrupt the young men
of this country that appears on the pages of Canadian history. The Bowser administration takes a contemptible
advantage of thc patriotic fervor of the public by assuming tbe public and the press will hesitate to criticise a
gift to the soldiers. In fact the Matson papers suggest
that the Act will strongly appeal to cvery patriotic citi
zen. But Bowser and his following are as ignorant of
the temperment of the people of this north country as
they are ignorant of the land conditions in the G. T. P.
railway belt.
The land issue is the very essence of the life and future
of this north country and the people of the north will be
justified in taking just as desperate means of protesting
as Bowser is taking in selling them out.
Giving land to soldiers has already proven to be a fool
policy in all parts of Canada, and particularly in British
Columbia. Last week the Herald told of 42,000 acres of
the best land in the Bulkley valley being tied up in soldiers' script. There is not one S. A. veteran to whom the
land was given, on any one of the 260 quarter sections in
thc Hulkeley Valley. It is all in the hands of teh land
grabbers, and the lancl is idle. This script land was largely
taken up in blocks which isolate the few settlers now in
the district, preventing community settlement, making
schools and churches impossible and forcing unnecessary
hardships upon the pioneer. Tbe script lands, the crown
granted blocks, and tbe lands held under agreements of
sale, arc the curse of British Columbia. There is no
room for the settler. Those now in the country hope, by-
compelling tbe speculators to give up the lands they have
not paid for, to open some of this tied-up land to new settlers and begin tbe real development of the district.
Ross' new policy is to take these lands and give therm
to soldiers who will eventually sell them to speculators,,
and the land will be tied up tighter than ever. In the
event of Ross perpetrating this crime there can bc no
other result. There will be nothing left for the settler
now here but to fold his tent on a pack-board and hit the
trail to another country. The Grand Trunk will have to-
make its western terminus at Jasper Park.
Soldiers arc not farmers and never will be. The life
they lead in the army unfits them for thc job of going
alone into the bush to cut out a home. Thc soldier grows-
accustomed to organization and companionship, and a.
bush farm is the last job on earth he wants when he
comes from the trenches. To present a soldier with a
quarter section of jackpine will be a cheap recognition of
his services. He will not thank the government and he
will promptly sell thc land to the highest bidder.
In thc meantime northern B. C. will be hog-tied for
another generation by the men who have already brought
the country to the brink of ruin.
If Bowser is determined to buy the votes of the soldiers,
as the crowning act in his career of corrupting the public,,
let hiin pay cash and give this north country a chance.
For public men to attempt to purchase thc favor of our
volunteers by promising them gifts is in itself a heinous-
crime, but when the finest asset of the province, the agricultural lands, arc squandered in the act, it becomes a.
crime of colossal magnitude���one which will damn the-
most promising part of the country for at least a generation to come.
Surely the fear of defeat has driven these men in Victoria mad.���Omineca Herald.
��� t  burden   will   be,  according  to  J'r.  J.   (
a mere trifle of a hundred million dollars.
In other words the people of this young nation will have
a lax placed upon them that will burden them for generations to come. The railway burden the Dominion will be
forced to carry will be much heavier than any of our
Canadian war burdens. We will pay more dearly for helping the private fortunes of a bunch of sharp promoters
than we vvill pay for the aid we have given to the Empire
in connection with the great war.
But what is tbe use of repining? Tliere is no possible
way of backing out of the difficult situation in which the
country finds itself with regard to Government assisted
railways. There is nothing for parliament to do but to
face the music and pay for the sins of the past.
While the Federal Government is busy mortgaging the
future of the Dominion to meet the demands of tbe railway
blood-suckers, let the people of British Columbia profit
from tbe example.
We in tbis Province have been stung individually by
Mackenzie and Mann and their Canadian Northern Pacific and their terminal promotions and industrial promotions. But that bas all been the fruits of a period of boom
which these same people promoted. As regards Grand
Trunk Pacific we have only the one liability as part of
the Dominion. But on tbe Canadian Northern we pay as
ratepayers in the great Dominion and having paid as such
wc pay over again as ratepayers in this Province. Then
we pay over again as ratepayers in the municipalities which
have been ravaged by Mackenzie and Mann. So far as the
Grand Trunk is concerned, we pay only as ratepayers i'u
the Dominion and as citizens of a country which has been
badly advertised by the fraudulent claims made by railway
' townsite agents operating under the name of the Grand
lint Sill these, liabilities arc -of the past���of the days
when, no nar was in Sight and when Canada under gootl
IE Statement is made that owing to a ruling of tin
I'ost Office Department papers ior soldiers iii France
and   Belgium   come   under   ihe   foreign   newspaper
rales. This necessitates a change in subscription price
and so from now mi daily papers which have been sent
out lo ihc sildiers cannol now he seiil unless an extra tax
of fifty cents a month is paid. This will mean that lo
send a paper from British Columbia to any point outside
the llritish Isles will cost seventy-five cents a month.
It is well known that many people here in Vancouver
having sons, husbands and friends "somewhere in France"
or other places, have taxed themselves with the price of a
daily paper and postage in onje r that the loved one
fighting for his country may have some reminder of home.
Can anything be conceived more likely to keep awake
the patriotic spirit I It was John Richard Green who said
that the cheap postcard, the cheap photograph, tbe message from home, did more to knit the sons of the Empire
to their mother countries than any enactments of parliament. And now the government has shown that it has
not the wisdom to devise some means by which tbe soldier
can be kept in touch with the land be is fighting for by
means of the newspaper except at a cost which to the
pinched  household  purse  is  almost  prohibitive.
When slavery was put down by British Act of Parliament it was declared that no matter in what part of the
world a British ship might be the deck of the ship was by-
legal fiction British soil. Surely tbe government ought
to be able to devise in a similar manner that wherever a
Hritish soldier may be fighting for bis country be carries
with him bis nationality sufficiently to entitle him to the
privileges of cheap postage and surely it can be avoided
that be should be cut off from communication by a tax
which, will come hard indeed upon bis family when tbe
breadwinner is removed.
This reading of the postal act, whatever it may bc. may
be technically correct. But such a reading is a blow to
national sentiment. Wc can conceive nothing more likely
to keep up the spirits of our soldiers fighting on foreign
soil than to read in our home papers how their gallant
deeds are appreciated. The order for an increase in postage has come as a Surprise and a blow and we cannot
imagine that it can bc anything else than temporary. Xot
once or twice has tbe government strained a legal point
to oblige friends. Surely it will adopt some quick method
of removing technicalities which deprive the heroes of the
battlefield of news from home.

ikhu'IKI of the Anglo-French bonds
and only $75,000,000 of this issue if
Canadian bonds, there is still left a
wide margin between the yieid ol
these two issues.
In comparing the terms ol the two
issues, some of the .American liuan-
cial men are quoting the Monroe Doctrine, and one newspaper makes the
following comment:
"So far no American statesman has
suggested that Wc would be too proud
to fight for that doctrine. That is
one reason, quite possibly lhe chief
reason why Canadian government obligations are enjoying a much higher
market in the United States than the
bonds of Great llritain and France.
So long as we are too proud or too
prudent or too wise to stand squarely
in the way of a flagrant violator of
our primary rights under international
law, we presumably would ,not stand
in the way of Germany over-running
al lFrance and all Britain, making
second and third Belgiums out of
them if she could, but one thing of
which our investors are sure inrcs-
pect to our foreign policy is that we
would fight to keep Germany or any
other European power from seizing
territory on the continent."

Is It British ?
That the British flag stands for the
principles of "Fair Play" is a fact
which is well known throughout the
entire civilized world.
It was on this principle of fair play tha! lhe Licensing
Act of Great llritain provides thai llu renewal of existing licenses may nol be arbitrarily refused without
providing for compensation. See Licensing Act. Great
Britain,  Chap. 2.1, 4  bid. 7.
It was on this principle tllat the London County Council
paid compensation to an average amount of $11,410 to
each of 773 licensees in respect of premises which wen-
closed in accordance with government regulations. See
London  Weekly Times of  Feb.  IS.   1916,
Is it consistent with the principle of
British fair play for British Columbia
to legislate out of existence by prohibition laws great capital invest
ments���largely made because of the
express demands of the licensing
authorities ��� without providing proper compensation for those making
the outlay?

February 1913, the contract for the
present building was let to Messrs.
Rourke, Macdonald and Moticreif, and
excavating immediately began. The
building was designed by the firm of
Burke, Horwood and White, of Toronto, and is of reinforced concrete
with front of cream terra cotta and
Corinthian columns. The foundation
has been made sufficiently strong to
carry the additional four stories which
thc original design calls for.
The mechanical plant was undertaken by the well-known local firm.
Messrs. Barr and Anderson. The store

exception of water and fuel oil and
thc mechanical plant is a revelation.
Light and power arc generated in the

marvels of the work.
The first store contained two departments and the present building
contains forty-four. The fittings of

II boys, if you will sit very
quiet I'll tell you about the biggest
bear   I   ever did  see," said  Grandma.
"When I was a little girl we used to
live on a farm right in the middle of
a big forest. Great big trees grew
around us not so very far from
our house. .Sometimes at night we
could hear the wolves bowl. My, how
we would shiver and shake, for it is
not a pleasant sound. Often tbe men
would say they had seen a bear, but
the bad animals would always run
away into the forest and never bothered the cattle at all. But one spring
afetr the bears had wakened after
their long winter's sleep, one old fellow took a notion to steal our little
pigs. I remember how excited we
children were when father came in to
say one of the pigs were gone. My
big brother, George, took down his
shotgun and said, 'I am going to get
that old fellow tonight. I know bears
just love pigs but we can't afford to
feed any bears these hard times!'
"That night father and George got
out tbe gun and watched for Mr. Bear.
By and bye they saw him coming but
he bad already visited, thc pigs pen
and do you know he was carrying a
pretty good-sized pig in his front legs
and was walking on his hind legs like
a man. George fired and the bear
dropped the  pig and  started  to run,

but George fired again and killed him.   likely receive
Next    morning    father  brought   the I done, scout,
hide of the bear to mother fur a hearth I
rug.   Always on cold nights the bear'
skin   was  the   favorite   [dace   for   the
children anil how we loved to roll and
play on it in  front of the open  fireplace.     Sometimes   now   when   I   go
over to the park and see the bears  I
think of that  big black  bear."

Ai the last convention held by the
llritish Columbia Poultry Association
in Chilliwack, it was decided by the
delegates   to   combine   the   different
poultry shows for the forthcoming
year. The North Vancouver, Kerrisdale, Central Park and Vancouver As-
���ociations to hold one show instead
nl" separate shows. There is no
doubt that the show will be a large
one and a win will be worth having.
Many of ihe smaller shows throughout the province practically have no
competition, and with the new fancier he is no wiser after the show than
before. A good idea would be to
have Amateur classes which would
give some of our Chccchako poultry-
men a chance to climb the ladder.

fowls that you do not like, because
no man makes a success at a business
he does not like. The same thing applies to choosing the varieties of
fowls. If you decide on one particular variety and like it, no doubt
you will take more pains and care
with tbein than you would otherwise.
Another question' tn bear in mind.
Pick a popular variety. Take for instance' the Rhode Island Reds, not
very long ago they were unheard of
and today they are one of the most
popular varieties in existence. ll
shows good judgment to take up a
Variety which everybody likes and
raises, you benefit considerably by the
opportunity of getting birds of real
merit, stronger and better quality
than some of the varieties that are
nearly extinct. Many fanciers arc always swaying from one variety to another and the consequence are they
do not make a success of any. If a beginner will choose his breed and stay
with them and use every endeavor
to bring them up to real merit, he
will make a success and reap benefits
which would be .a credit to him. Also
you have the opportunity to dispose
of surplus stock at remunerative prices, and also of establishing a strain
of birds that would be known 'throughout  poultrydoin.
