'���The truth at all tlmt-a firmly ataniU
And Khali from airr to nx<- endure."
SINCE the prohibition people have shown that
they are in earnest, the anticipated defensive is
forthcoming from the liquor interests.
A campaign has been launched with the object in
view of securing, in the event of prohibition carrying, at least half a loaf for the liquor interests.
In our form of government, the people are all
powerful if they wish to exercise their privileges.
The people granted the licenses to the hotel men, to
the breweries, and the people can take the licenses
away again if they so choose.
When the jitney men broke into the transportation business in Vancouver, the B.C.E.R. Co. did
not ask for compensation, and had they done so, everyone would have laughed. It would be as reasonable for the B.C.E.R. to demand compensation for
their loss owing to the aggressiveness of the jitney
drivers as it is for the liquor men to ask for compensation in view of the people deciding to revoke their
Old-timers in British Columbia who formerly
lived in Manitoba will remember that when Sir
Rodmond Roblin was first wafted into power he
agreed to government control of the telephones.
"When Sir Rodmond was safe in office, he proceeded to buy out the Bell Telephone Company in Manitoba. Of course the Bell Telephone Company was
to receive compensation for the loss of its monopoly
in Manitoba, and Sir Rodmond gave them a million
or Iwo, which some people claim was very excessive
How much of that money passed into the hands
of Sir Rodmond and his friends the public were not
able to find out, but the opposition contended at that
time that the Telephone Company and the hangers
on of the government split about fifty-fifty on the
big purse.
If the present government were to continue in office in British Columbia���if prohibition with compensation were to carry���you may depend upon it
that the fifty-fifty policy so popular with Master
Roblin would enter into the Government's settlement locally with the hotel interests.
It is safe to say, judging from the benevolence of
the McBride government in the past towards the
liquor interests, that if compensation were to be the
rule, the keeper of every grog shop in British Columbia would find himself closed out with more money
in his pockets than he could hope to make legitimately if he were allowed to continue under license during the next five years.
The plea for compensation being put forward by
the liquor men is one which should not have thc consideration of respectable people.
THIS week there was held at Chilliwack a convention of the Union of Municipalities of
B. C. One of the daily papers in reporting
lhe meeting, stated that certain aldermen of Vancouver travelled to Chilliwack in a car owned by
the city, while certain other aldermen made the trip
in a car owned and driven by a paving promoter,
-whose name need not be mentioned again.
The public knows little of the activities of certain
kinds of paving promoters. Many a street has been
heavily paved with expensive material to the ruin of
Hat property holders on that street, not because the
street required paving, but because die paving company wanted the contract and certain public officials desired to participate in the profits of that contract.
If councillors and aldermen would develop a mild
case of smallpox when paving promoters draw nigh,
it would be so much the better for the municipalities,
ihe officials themselves, and legitimate concerns offering honest pavements for sale.
The paving lobbyist who holds forth about the
���city halls makes the way easy for railroad lobbyists
who hang about the corridors of provincial legislatures and the House of Commons. A councillor
who has taken a rake-off on a small paving contract
would easily fall a prey at a later date, if he were
to go to parliament, to the cup and cheque of a
Canadian Northern majority-seeker, for instance.
IN the fight for the overthrow of lhe Government
of Victoria the SATURDAY   CHINOOK
has taken an active part in the past, and will continue to fight bad government so long as paper and
ink are available.
But in the fight, the rules of civilized political
warfare will be observed so far as we are concerned.
Though the Vancouver SUN is usually right,
an editorial appeared Wednesday morning, which
does not assist the cause of the Liberal party, and
which can not do much injury to Sir Richard McBride.
The SUN says that Sir Richard has been "an
ideal real estate Premier. His glowing platitudes
helped make sales because his imagination gave birth
to infinite publicity material. He conjured up great
railroads and huge industries to verbal millions with
ease and abandon, but words do not pay rent or
If Sir Richard McBride was "an ideal real estate
Premier," then the SUN should not hurl bricks at
him. During the life of the SUN no subdivision
from Willow River to Port Mann was offered for
sale which did not find advertising space in the
columns of the SUN. The original directors of the
SUN were in the days of Sir Richard's glory, good
real estate men. Nor is this to the discredit of either
the SUN or its directors, for B. C. in those days was
real estate mad, and Sir Richard, the SUN and the
rest of us were all in the market. If Sir Richard
was therefore a real estate Premier, and his government a real estate government, in that government
we had a more or less true image of the people of
B. C. of that period. As to the real estate business,
we might observe that it is as old as the hills.
Most 'of the great fortunes of the world have their
foundation upon real estate. It was in the good days
and is still, a legitimate business.
The wonder is that many men in Vancouver who
a few years ago were living on the top shelf because
of their success in the real estate markets, today
sneer at the very mention of real estate, and are prepared to state that they never engaged in that awful |
line of business. The SUN'S editorial was likely
written to please that type of man, surely not for the
edification of more honest individuals.
Sir Richard McBride and Mr. Bowser have had
their day, and the people of B. C. will put them
aside together with many of their own vices and
follies. Let us fight in the meantime on the level.
Let us bring against the McBride government direct
and concrete charges of criminal negligence and inefficiency. "*
If the truth regarding the financing of the P. and
G. E. railroad, for instance, were brought forward,
the people would be enlightened and much benefited.
Surely the records of P. and G. E. and many
other transactions are to be had at Victoria. At all
events it should not be left to the TORONTO
GLOBE and other outside papers to carry any
part of the brunt of the battle for better government
in this province.

TO move a carload of household goods from
Halifax to Vancouver will cost approximately $450. To move the same goods from
Vancouver to Prince George will cost approximately $450.
A man in Vancouver has the same opportunity
of reaching the rich hinterland of British Columbia
as the man in Halifax.
If a man in Winnipeg and another resident in
Vancouver wished to go to northern British Columbia, along the line of the G.T.P., the Winnipeg
man, if they started at the same time, would reach
his destination before the Vancouver man, and at a
less cost.
Of course, when the P. and G. E. is completed,
the tables will be changed somewhat. But if the
P. and G. E. is to be completed along the lines favorable to McBride, the Vancouver man would have
to mortgage twenty-five years of his future in order
to help pay interest on the millions of government
money in the road, while the Winnipeg man would
stay in Winnipeg rather than come into a Province
overburdened with taxation.

IT will interest peace-loving residents of the cities

the hands of night raiders. One man lost twenty
head a few weeks ago. His cattle were ready for
the market, and as a result of the visit of the thieves,
this particular farmer suffered a loss which badly
crippled him.
Complaints have been sent to Victoria, to the
Attorney-General's department, by the Cariboo
ranchers, but it seems that there is no police protection for the men of the Cariboo.
The Provincial Police Department is one of the
most expensive departments under the Legislature.
It is also the most inefficient branch of the public
service. Its upkeep is about as great as that of the
R.N.W.M.P. Representatives of the Provincial
Police in the rural districts range themselves, in j brethren,
many instances, upon the side of vice.
In the cities the Provincial Police overlap the local
police departments. The inefficiency of the force
is due entirely to the fact that it is part of a mean
political machine. Some splendid officers hold
places of large responsibility in the force, but the
dominating power is W. J. Bowser at Victoria.

In the words of T. Dewitt Talmage: "A monster such as never ranged in African thicket or a
Hindostani jungle has tracked this land, and with
bloody maw has strewn the continent with the mangled carcasses of whole generations, and there are
tens of thousands of fathers and mothers who can
hold up the garment of their slain boy truthfully exclaiming, 'It is my son's coat, an evil beast hath
devoured him.' "
Despite the greed and power of this monster,
Laurier should not be deceived, for Joseph still lives
and presently will likely "reveal his hand" unto his

short weeks, seems now to be dead beyond any
chance of resuscitation.
A few weeks ago, rumor had it that the EVENING JOURNAL was to be revived. Shortly after that a new face of type appeared on the front
page of the PROVINCE. It was the type through
which Joseph Martin used to express himself on the
front page of the EVENING JOURNAL. Mr.
Martin has laid aside his blue pencil and copy
schedule. Two of his linotype machines have joined the battery of the DAILY PROVINCE. The
rest of the equipment used in the printing of the
EVENING JOURNAL is being crated and
stored away, and the Imperial Tobacco Company-
have leased or purchased the EVENING JOURNAL building.

"The evidence ill tins ease," ���:iitl Judge Anderson, passing sentence upon
the 116 men who had debauched thc ballot-boxes of Vigo county, lnd., "showed
thai the laloona were the centres oi nearly all the corruption in the election at
Terre Haute.   My notion is that the saloon will have to go,"
Judge Anderson might have said that the saloon is going, and in many
states nnd hundreds of counties has already gone, and for the very reason so
bluntly given. Prohibition is winning its most notable victories in regions
where an antagonism to the saloon is even more pronounced than the sentiment in Favor of total abstinence.
The brewers who own most of the saloons are chiefly to blame for tbe
disasters that are overtaking them. They have not been content to sell beer.
They have undertaken to govern'parties, cities and states. Their power has
been prodigious, and naturally it has often been abused. The brewing combine is the cheekiest of all our trusts, for it is the only one that has yet ventured to operate at the polls.���Xew York World.

The persistent, vicious critic is rarely a man who amounts to much himself.
How kindly the criticisms made by the really big men of the country;
how vicious the criticisms from the unimportant gents who are hidden away
in back rooms!
The man who has attempted tu write a great play or book, and failed, is
.sour and mean, and takes it out on those who have succeeded in literature.
The lazy man who has.made a failure of life hates the successful men who
control big affairs by means of hard work; and bow vicious, unfair and mean
are his criticisms. What big tasks he gies others! How.spitefully he abuses
those who cannot perform the tasks he demands of them!
'.. The persistent critjc'is not often a good man himself; he is often a pervert
in one way or another. The biggest thing apout him is his sneer. He cannot
do, the things he says others; should do.     ,..*".

Wartime has apparently never failed in producing graft. St. George of
Cappadoria was an army suttler, presumably before he became a saint, if he
ever did. In these days of higher criticism English scholars have risen up to
deny that the St. George who bore the red cross on his white shield, and who
slew the dragon, had anything to do with the George of Cappadocia, who
after a career of very questionable money-making in some way became a bishop
and was finally murdered or martyred for his oppressions. The Duke of
Marlborough was a master gafter. He died out of favor, but very rich. The
German superman has. as we all know, raised the art almost to the sublime.
Before the war it was becoming known how concerns like the Krupps could
not only make unspeakable fortunes out of war, but could co-operate with similar concerns in other countries to get their respective countries into war; and
it is not certain that the greatest aggression of the ages was not in some measure the outcome of this heinous canker, or that it was not in some measure

Germany well, has exposed in the "Atlantic Monthly" how human the Germans tire, with all their perfection of organization, which he rightly admires.
Some jackets being wanted for tbe prisoners in a camp at Posen, the order

whom ii passed, cost Ihe government nine marks and a half each. This may

where alienation of public resources have been carried out on such a gigantic
scale, that thousands are feeling the bad effects of such maladministration today and generations yet unborn will feel it still more keenly. The Canadian

The attitude taken by the young people of the United States today toward
marriage, is one which is not calculated t" brink about the best results for
happiness or economic success.
The young man feels that unless he can offer the girl of his choice a home
and surroundings practically equal to those she is enjoying in her father's
house, he has no right to tell her bis love, and the girl feels that to descend
from the circumstances to which she ii accustomed to a humbler setting, would
not suit her at all       .. ���    - *
She has come to feel that her role as wife is beautifully and adequately
played if she presides over an attractive home, where the work is largely done
by hired help, wears fashionable clothing, entertains enough to keep in with
things, and becomes the'mother (though this is not essentia!) of one, or at
most, two children.
Of course she would expect to love her husband, but with a love not sufficiently durable to last through the trials and vicissitudes of a slender income.
The idea of partnership, of working together, building up a comfortable;
little income and a strong and capable family, docs not seem to be taken into
consideration by the young men and women nf today.
It is all a part of the artificial values which the young minds of this generation have created for themselves, partly through the fault of the over indulgent parent.
It can be seen in its clothes, its amusements and its restless search for
more stimulating excitement.

It affiliated with the Trade Unionists an' frae that body emerged the

the advanced principles advocated by
the I. L. P. were a wee bitty in front

also realized that unless this huge

Observe the Ionic bayonet on the French rifle, evidently designed for attack on

I can aye remember the first time
I saw Hardie. I wis a wee shaver at
thc time���I couldnie hae been ony
marc than eicht year auld���but fine I
can min' takin' my faithcr's h.iun' on
the road doon tae the "drcely grun'"
at Holyrood whereon the big proces-
shun wis convergin efter makin' a parade o' the main streets o' Auld Reekie.
If I min' richt, it wis in counecshun wi' thc miners' cicbt hoor day,
an' Hardie wis the main speaker at
the demonstration.
Hardie was M.P. at that time an'
the name maist often applied tae him
at that time was "firebrand." I'm
sorry tae say that 1 mysel, efter I
got up a wee bit an' "entered intae
polyticks" often used that expression
when speakin' o' him.
Hooever. the trouble wi' me like
a whole lot mare wis that wc didnie
unnerstaun the man, an' while we
were divertin' oor min's on Home
Rule or whether the natives o' some
faur off "possession" should be made
tae wear breeks afore they were allowed tae become members o' the
Empire, or sic ithcr like "superior"
questyin, Jim wis preachin' the doctrine o' charity begins at bame an' at-
temptin' tae mak the lordlin's at
Westminster think a wee bitty mare
o' thc "natives" at hame an' ciuleav-
orin' tae get for them a wee bitty
mare o' the benefits o' civilisashun.
For a long period o' years Hardie
wis the only labor member o' the
"Hoose," an' often has he been referred tae as the voice cryin' in the
wilderness. ,
Hooever, Hardie wis made o' the
richt stuff, an' withstood it a'. A very
trite expression, "The workin' man's
worst enemy is himsel" could be very
fittingly applied in counecshun wi' the
propaganda carried on through the
country by Hardie.
It wis nac uncommon thing tae
hear o' some o1 Hardie's meetin's bein'
invaded by a gang o' workin' men.
Liberals or Torys, who socht tae prevent the meetin' bein' held an' indulg-
hope   for ony advancement along  the
lines that spelt success.
The linkin' o' the I. L. P. wi' the
trade unionists wisnie at a' tae the
likin' o' some o' Kcir's followers in
the Soshylist movement and they were
inclined tae kick owre the traces at
times al what they considered a sacrifice o' their principles in bein' identified wi' ony body which hadnie as
its first an' foremost plank the spread-
in' o' the Soshylist doctrine.
I remember bein' at a meetin' which
Keir addressed, an' at which he replied very fittingly tae some o' his
"comrades" in the movement who
were afraid o' losin' their identity in
the  bigger  pairty.
"The I. L. P.." be said, "was like
a fishin' yawl makin' for the herbor
in Ihe teeth o' a vigorous laund squall.
If yae stood on the pier," be con-
teenyied. "yae wud notice the captain tackin' this wey. syne tackiu' the
ither wey. every time takin' advantage
o' the win's that were favorable tae
him. aye gettin' nearer the entrance,
until finally he reached the hame port.
That." said he, "wis the policy o' the
I. L. P. We're like the captain, we
know where we're makin for an' we're
gaun tae tak advantage o' ony favor-
in' element in the shape o' advanced
legislashun that'll help tae cairry us
tae oor proper goal."
While Robert Blatchford did tremendous work for the Soshylist cause
by his writin's. Hardie combined a-
long wi' that a tremendous capacity
for work, an' if the workin' men o'
the auld country hae onybody tae
thank for the "reforms" they ha'e got
placed on the statute books, the wan
they ha'e tae thank "aboon them a'"
is James Keir Hardie.
Jist at the present time when prohibition is sae muckle in the air in
these quarters, it should be meushun-
ed that Hardie wrote a book, the title
o' which was "Is poverty the result
o' drink." in which the author showed very clearly tae his temperance
freens���an' Hardie wis a strict teetotaller���that their oft-repeated asser-
ll there's wan thing in Hardie's
life we can admire mare than anither
that was his sterlin' honesty. There's
nae true doobts that had Hardie
wished he could ha'e been a cabinet
minister in ony government that has
sat durin' the last twenty years���but
principle kept Hardie "tae the strecht
an' narrow path," an' while another
noted British Soshylist. John Hums,
fell tae the cupidity o' the "yellow."
an' sync even turned against his erstwhile comrades in the movement,
Keir stood staunch an' true wi' his
colors nailed tae the mast.
EUbbie'l words very fittingly apply
tae Hardie in this connecsbun:
"A king can mak a belted knight.
A marquis, duke an' a   that.
But an honest man's aboon his might
Gude faith he niaunna fa' that!
For a' that an' a' that.
Their dignities an' a* that,
The pith o' sense an' pride o' worth
Are higher ranks than a' tha't."
Hardie has come in for a whole lot
o' vile abuse durin' the war. Jim's
uncompromisin' attitude on war was
well known. He was agin militarism
at a' times, an' the international brotherhood o' workin' men, united tae
stop war wis his aim an' objeck.
There are quite a lot o' folk say
that such a thing is impossible, but
they're thc same folk that a wheen
short years ago were gaun aboot
makin' fun at Marconi's attempt tae
telegraf withoot wires or lauchin' at
"the sully gowks" attemptin' tae flee.
No truer patriot ever breathed, an'
no son of Britain has ever done more
for his eourrtry than Keir Hardie. an'
when we hear o' vermin like North-
cliffe an' sic like screech aboot him
bein' an ally o' the Kaiser it wud mak
a fellie vomit.
I mysel believe that the auld country wis richt in gaun tae war wi' the
Huns, but that wunnie prevent mc
frae still admirin' an' reverein' the
memory o' James Keir Hardie. I ken
he was nae coward.

You often hear t
the   alarm,   hut
ring for
ie aspiration of every enlightened person for himself, for his children
and for his fellows. Now the question is: does the liquor traffic help
or retard this aspiration? If the latter, then every human instinct
cries aloud for its total prohibition. Common sense demands it. To
aid in forming an opinion we have at present before us object leisons
on a scale never before available to the world and sufficiently convincing to leave no doubt in the mind. This is due to the \var. In
Russia the moral, economic and physical deteroriation of the people
by the prevalent inordinate use of thieir intoxicating spirit, vodka, had
i become a serious menace. When the war broke out it was seen lhal
I it had to be dealt wilh. The government did so ir. a masterful fashion by abolishing the traffic at a cost to its revenue of $300 ( 00 01 I
per annum!    It thus swept away one of the greatesL barrier   I
, evitable spiritual decay. Right here is the scientific explanation of
j lhe association of crime and insanity with drink. The continual absorption of a poisonous drug into the human system inevitably affects
! the brain, weakening the will, sapping the moral sense and rendering
i the individual unfit to cope with the problems and temptations mci-
l.dental to human existence. This insidious deteroriation, moreover,
does not stop with the individual infringer of physical law, but by the
j law ol heredity, passes to the children and becomes in them a serious
j handicap in the race of life. Heredity is the transmission of the qual-
I ities of parents to children. If conditions are right, the process of
' evolution is always towards the betterment of the species. It is an
I undisputed fact that the mental and physical condition of the mother
j before the birth of the child exerts a lasting influence on the child.
Many instances prove the father equally responsible with the mother.
The latest teachings on these subjects indicate that men and women
may influence the quality of children they will produce. The eminent surgeon. Sir Victor Horsley, says:
"Evidence indicates that for a child to be well born, at least
Iwo generations of healthy men and women must have played their
part honestly and well."
Can parents who innoculate themselves with the virus of alcohol, however moderately, conscientiously say they are fulfilling this
sacred obligation? Statistics prove incontrovertably that alcoholic
indulgence affects the physical, mental and moral condition of the
unborn child. Let us banish the saloon and thus take one big step
towards conditions which will help produce a "nobler race than e er
(he world has seen." Searching investigation into the effect of drinking upon human life eluridates the fact that abstainers show marked
superiority to non-abstainers throughout lhe entire working years of
life for both sexes, however tested. This is the studied verdict of the
Insurance Companies, institutions more alive to the causes that shorten
I'fe than any others. They state that death carries off in the prime of
life from two to three times as many drinkers as other insured persons.
Hence they have now different rates of premiums ior the two classes.
I In sickness the drinker continues ill about two and a half times as long
'��� m the average man. Time lost from work by sickness means money
lost from the pay envelope with the added cost of longer medical Ireal-
*.t.    Whatever disease may attack a man, statistics prove that the

li Hector Macdonald ��� "Fighting
Mac." thc greatest Scottish soldier
since  the  days  of   Hrtlcc���still   living?
li It,- playing a hero's part in the
present  war?
These ai'e strange and staggering
questions. I'm hundreds are asking
them. Thousands and tens of thousands will be asking BOOtl.
All lite world knows that in lite
gusty mirk uf a March morning
twelve years ago a coffin believed to
contain the remains nf the departed1
General was lowered into a grave in
the Dean Cemetery, Edinburgh.
Tiritain was heavy of heart that day.
Westminster Abbey was the only
resting-place fit for mi grand a warrior. Hut his amazing career had ended, not in a blaze of glory, but in
blackness and  horror.
"Fighting Mac," the soldier's idol,
the man who hail climbed by sheer
brain-power and courage from the
ranks to a Knighthood and a great
command, had died by his own  hand.
Thus, at least, all believed.
And now a story comes from the
front and is gaining currency all over
solve; ihe ragged moustache, and the
firm, generous mouth.
Compare a present-day photograph
of Kitchener with a portrait taken of
him at the time of tile Itoer War, and
yon will see thai tbe jaw-line has altered in precisely lhe same tlegree as
the difference between the jaw-line of
Hector Macdonald ami of General De-
In fact, one might truthfully say
that the Kitchener of today differs no
more from the Kitchener of 1903 than
does the present day face of Deme-
trieff from the face of "Fighting
Mac," as we knew and loved it.
Demetrieff is said to resemble Macdonald as much in military characteristics as in feature, lie is a leader of
extraordinary dash and daring, and
from the time of the first Russian invasion of Galieia last autumn he has
been a continual thorn in the side of
the Prussians.
His strategic powers are declared to
rank with those of the Grand Duke
Nicholas, while no Cossack horseman
excels hiin in courage and nerve. His
soldiers worship him.
assistant, must at lasf have thoroughly disgusted a man of MacdonaWs
temperament, anil one call quite imagine fierce disdain prompting him at
this final insult to act in lhe way that
the old Highland soldiers hint at and
dramatically sever himself from a society in which the system of caste
ruled  with so much arrogance.
In the days when Maeilotiald left
the Inverness drapery store to become
a Gordon Highlander lhe army was
genet ally regarded as the proper
sphere for ne'er-do-weels and winua-
works. The dividing line between the
soldier and the officer was much more
drastically defined than ii. happily, is
today. To rise without influence to
commissioned rank was a task more
difficult than lo climb the Mattcrhorn
without rope or guides.
A beggar from the streets might
as well have hoped for a welcome
into the drawing-rooms of Mayfair as
a private for acceptance into the exclusive society of the officers' mess.
How "Bobs" was Saved
lint Macdonald was determined to
achieve tbe impossible. He meant to
be a General some day.
His first great chance came when
the Kabul Field Force, with "Hobs"
in command, advanced into Afghanistan with the 92nd Gordon Highlanders, constituting part of the First
Infantry Brigade.
"Bobs" and his staff was pushing
forward through a dark and frowning
Afghan   defile,   when   the   little   party

Collingwood is living up to its reputation of being the Athens of South
Vancouver. Artists, musical, theatrical and pictorial, seem to gravitate
to that centre and it is no less than
truth to say that the library and institute in Collingwood has something
of the power of a magnet in that direction.
Within a few yards of the library,
two artists of repute���indeed, eminence���have set up studios. Mr. Duncan, a portrait painter and landscape
artist, who has been teaching art for
many years, has put up a studio In
Joyce Street, and the first job he has
undertaken is a picture in oils of Mr.
W. H. Kent, as an act of friendship.
It will be remembered that Mr. Duncan's pictures of B. C. animals attracted much attention at the Vancouver
Mr. Smith has set up an elaborate
studio in Collingwood East which,
with Oriental rugs and skins on the
floor, with a fine display of pictures
takes on a very Bohemian appearance.
Mr. Smith's work in black and white
which has appeared in leading American papers have won him a high reputation. He has already received several commissions from South Vancouver.
Mr. J. Francis Bursill is making a
strong effort to utilize this local talent
of such a high order in adding to tlie
decorations at the library.

and that placed Macdonald fur all
time among the great military heroes
of the world.
General Demetrieff, the mysterious
and brilliant leader of Russian troops,
whose exploits during the past few
months have been of incalculable service to our great ally in the F.ast, is
said to be none other than Major General  Sir  Hector  Macdonald. K.C.B.!
Demetrieff bears an amazing facial
resemblance to the great Scottish soldier, whose grave lies in Edinburgh.
This fact was commented on again
and again by Scotsmen travelling in
Russia before the war.
When, therefore, Demetrieff drew
sword against the Germans, and began to display military abilities of the
highest order, small wonder the rumor arose that here indeed was Macdonald himself.
No one who compares in detail the
portraits of Demetrieff and Hector
Macdonald can fail to be convinced
of the striking likeness that the two
faces bear to each other. "They're
photographs of the same man taken
at different ages!" is the thought that
immediately springs tn the mind.

dauntless expression." The nose,

It was in the year 1853 that he first
saw the light, in the little village of
Root field, near Dingwall, Ross-shire,
his birthday being on the 13th of
April. It was or) the 25th March just
50 years later that the world received
the dumbfounding news that he had
blown out his brains at a Paris hotel.
But suicide was thc very last fate
one could have imagined for Hector.
He was far too virile and healthy a
man for that. And there are scores of
people, including many old soldiers
of the Highland Brigade, who fought
under his leadership, who for years
have resolutely maintained "Mac's no'
"He was just fed up wi' the treatment he was gettin'," these old soldiers will tell you, "so he took himself off quietly to some place abroad,
where he knew he'd be better appreciated.    Sma' blame to him either!"
Victim of Malice
Certainly an insult of the grossest
character was offered to Macdonald,
when shortly after his appointment
to command of the troops in Ceylon
he was summoned to appear before
a Court-Martial of his brother officers and answer charges alleging mis
conduct of the foulest description.
The threatened Court-Martial would
never have been allowed to cast its
shadow upon Macdonald had he been
a man of high social influence instead
of a soldier who had risen from the
That the charges were without
foundation was amply proved some
few weeks after Hector's death had
been announced, so that the hero, conscious all along of his innocence,
could have no compelling motive for
an exit from the world. But the ingratitude, snobbery, and insidious malice, which numbers of his superiors
in birth had long served out to the

guard, discovered an ambush of 2000

Immortal Deeds
Immortal is the story of Macdon-
ald's deeds on the grim day of Maju
ba, when with a force of 18 men he
held for seven hours thc position allocated to him and declined to surrender when even the last of his. heroic Highlanders had fallen.
Taken prisoner, he fought with his
clenched fists the Boers who attempted to deprive him of his sword, and
he would have been shot down in
cold blond but for thc interference
of a Commandant, who cried, "Don't
kill a brave man!"

What happiness! Earlier the hoop
,hat' not been; but how briskly he
could run now.
And nothing of this had been before; everything was new to the boy

merry sun. and the distant din of the
city. Everything was new to thc boy.
and joyous and pule,
A shabbily dressed old man. with
coarse hands, stood al the street Crossing. He pressed close to the wall
to let the woman and the boy pass
The old man looked al the boy with
dull eyes and smiled stupidly. Unclear, sluggish thought's struggled
within  his head, bereft of hair.
"A little gentleman!" said he to
himself. "Quite a small fellow. And
simply bursting with joy. Just look
at him cutting a pace!"
He could not quite understand it.
Somehow it seemed strange to him.
Here is a child���a thing to be pulled
about by the hair! Play is mischief.
Children, it is well known, are mischief-makers.
And there's the in other���she' utters

she does not scold: She is Smart and

they are used to warmth and comfort.
On tbe other hand, when he, the
old man, was" a hoy lie lived a dog's
life! Even now there-was nothing
particularly rosy in his existence,
though, to be sure, he was no longer
thrashed and he had plenty to eat.
He recalled his younger days���their
hunger, their cold, their drubbings.
He had never indulged in such mischief as the hoop and other playthings
of well-to-do folk. Thus passed all
his life���in poverty, in care, in misery. And be' could --recall nothing���
not a single joy.
Smiling with his* toothless mouth
at the boy. he envied him. He re-
"What a silly sport!"
But  envy  tormented  him.
He went to work���10 the factory,

where *hc had grown old. > And tlie entire- day he thought of tbe hoy.
It was a feed, deep-rooted thought-.
tin- little slick, lie wears a while costume, his little legs arc plump, bare
at  the knee.
Day passes alter day. the work goes
on. the fancy persists.
Returning from work one evening,
the old man saw a hoop of an old barrel lying in tin street. Il was a rough,
dirty implement. The old man trembled from happiness, and tears ap-j
pearcd in his dull eyes A sudden almost irrepressible desire took |i"S-i-.
siou nf him.
Cautiously  he glanced round,  then
bent down, picked up the hoop with
trembling hands, ami. smiling shamefacedly, carried it  home with  him.
Xo one had noticed, no one had
questioned him. Whose concern was
it? A ragged old man, carrying an
old, dilapidated, useless hoop ��� who
He carried it stealthily, afraid of
ridicule. Why be picked it up anil
why he carried it bc himself could
not tell. Still, it resembled the boy's
hoop, and this was sufficient. There
was no harm in its lying about.
He could look at it; be could touch
it. It would quicken the reveries;
duller would grow the factory whistle
and turmoil, denser than escaping vapors. :-. .
For several days the hoop lay under the bed in the old man's poor,
ramped quarters. Sometimes he
would take out the hoop, look at it.
Tbe dirty gray hoop soothed tbe old
man. and this would quicken the persistent reverie about the happy little

the birds were chirping away in the
consumptive city trees somewhat
more cheerfully than was their habit,
the old man rose earlier, took his
hoop, and went a little farther out of

There is no more canny or careful Scot in Canada than Kenneth
1 amond.
At home in Leith he was a power in the land and in Canada lie
1 ontinues to be an aggressive and active and highly respected member of society.
Maister Lamond, hat pulled over his eyes, occupied a seat all
by himself in a late car the other night. Though a man of abstemious
habits, we were surprised to find him asleep.
"No, no, Garge, ye ken I dinnie drink," quoth he, laughing at
our question; "I'm a wee bit tired after a hard, long day at it, and
I'm awa hame."
We sympathized.
"And what business are you in now, Mr. Lamond?"
"Have yae nae heard aboot it?" said he, much surprised.
"Weel, weel," said Lamond, "I thocht everyone knew. Mysel
and Chairlie Harrison!"
"Not running a jitney?"
"Nae, nae; but the same as McCool and Campbell, the same
as Pound and Third."
"Where, where is your place?"
"Awa by Howe Street, by the Metropolitan Building on
Hastings.   Gasoline, ile and accessorial."
Mr. Lamond was asked for more specific details as to the location of the place.
"Ma conscience maun,' said he, "yon wee bit buildin' wi' the
big pump.   Whaur the jitneys turn aboot."
Now we knew the place and complimented Mr. Lamond on
the choice of location.
"And every time you pump a gallon out of the pump you make
a penny?" we observed. With just the leastbit of jollying.
"Ay, maun," s.a,id Kenneth; "gin we'd mak a penny, ma conscience, it wud be grauh'." . Here, his voice broke. "But mysel and

And Mr.-Lamond heaved a great sigh;'likely speculating within at the fact that though John D. Rockefeller arid himself had many
traits, in common and had got their start in life in the same manner,

South Vancouver Citizen's Club
Citizens discusr. the approaching election ��� Pungent criticism of
Reeve .and Councillors���More Playing to the Gallery for
Election   Purposes.
"Well, what do you think of the
latest trouble at the Municipal Hall?"
was the question put by I'resilient
Jones as he look the chair at the
meeting of the club on Wednesday.
"Vutt will begin to think btere is nothing else to discuss, except the doings of Reeve Cold and his council;
but it seems to me the more we discuss their doings just now the belter
prepared we shall be to deal with the
situation in January next. That is
the only reason for asking you lo
again express your opinions of the
doings at the Municipal Hall."
Citizen Mackenzie: Thc "doings,"
as you call the actions of the reeve
and councillors, at the special meeting of Tuesday merely confirm the
opinicfci I had previously formed���
that with Reeve Gold in the chair a
council meeting becomes a "bear-garden";  with the reeve absent,  couhclt-
ialways discreet, are innocent of graft
in any shape or form. In proving
this, Reeve Gold has earned the thanks
of the ratepayers. Hut, having proved  the innocence of past councillors
and officials, his work is done and
the sooner Edward Gold retires from
the public life of South Vancouver the
better for the municipality.
Citizen Robinson; Looking at the
matter from that point of view there
may have been some good in Mr.
Gold's election to office. Rut, apart
from having proved the innocence of
officials and past councillors, what
good has he done?
Citizen Browne: Well, he has proved the necessity for care in the election of future reeves and councillors.
Citizen Mackenzie: Tllat is so, and
while I blame members of the present
council for allowing Reeve Gold to
"carry  on" as he  has done,  I   should
the gallery play which wastes such an
enormous amount of time at council
meetings It is absolutely futile, as
it defeats its own object���that of securing the approval "I the populace
j ami \otis it election. It is so pitifully plain that though a little gallery
play may produce temporary applause,
al times, in the long run thoughtful
persons see through il and they form
tin' opinion that tile men who resort
to thai sort of thing ate not sincere
and. therefore, are nol til for public
of (tee.
t'iti/en Smythe: That is exactly my
opinion. I have seen a good many election campaigns and occasionally a
man wi i can adroitly play on the
emotions of an audience succeeds; but
gallery play is a poor substitute for
honesty of purpose, and lh general
public soon tires of a man who continually plays to lhe gallery. The
average man prefers an opponent who
is honestly sincere than a political
friend who seeks popularity by gallery play
President Jones: Whom do you
consider most guilty of gallery play-
on  the  present council?
Citizen Robinson: Reeve Gold by
a long chalk. He plays to the gallery
so consistently that he makes himself   look   foolish.       You   remember,
to work���all sewer men and ratepayers!"
Citizen Robinson: Thai is exactly
what I have contended all along���
that Reeve Gold is s-> inconsistent am'
so palpably plays to lhe gallery tha'
if councillors would only combine t'
run a straight fight t'"f the recveshi]
at the next election, they could beat
him hands down, by showing up his
Inconsistency and making him appeal
���0 foolish that he would be ashamed
to appear  on any  public  platform.
Citizen Mackenzie: You are wrong
there, Robinson. It is one of the impossible tilings to make Eddie Gold
ashamed of himself���it can not be
done. You can show up his inconsistency all right and you can prevent
his re-election to the council, but you
will never make him ashamed of him-

lors get down lo business iu i sensible, businesslike way. 1 have noticed
this lime after time. The conclusion
naturally is that the permanent retirement of Reeve Gold form public life
is essential if South Vancouver is to
remove the stigma and ridicule now
associated with council meetings,
Citizen Robinson: That has been
my opinion for a long time. If you
go back to the early part of 1914,
when Mr. Gold was elected as councillor for Ward 5, you will recall tllat
ail council meetings were scenes of
uproar and disgraceful proceedings.
Councillor Gold resigned, was defeated at tbe bye-election for the reeve-
ship, and a peaceful calm fell upon
the council. In January, 1915, Reeve
Gold took up the reins of office and
there has been nothing but turmoil
and strife all through the year. It is
significant to note that both in 1914
and 1915 Mr. Gold was elected with a
council unanimously in accord with
his election platform and administrative policy. Then, why all the turmoil and strife? If any good was accomplished there might be some excuse for stirring up mud and blackening the municipality; but, I put it
to you as observant men, what good
has Reeve Gold accomplished either
when he was councillor or since his
election as reeve? ,   ,
Citizen Browne: This. Mr. Edward
Gold both as councillor and reeve has
���ot hesitated to denounce graft, past
and present. He has accused officials and councillors publicly; and for
a time, ratepayers were inclined to
think there was something in his accusations. But, in spite of numerous
investigations and all his opportunities to ferret out instances of graft
and maladministration, Reeve Gold
has failed to prove anyone of his charges, but has satisfied all reasonable,
thoughtful ratepayers that his charges were false and that thc officials
and councillors  though,  perhaps,  not
like to see some of them in the council next year; because I think with
a normal reeve they will be able to
render much better service than they
have done this year. It seems to mc
that councillors who wish to serve in
1916 should combine and decide on a
policy. Bach should agree to submerge self in the public interest. Il
is said, with how much truth I do not
know, that several of the councillors
are prospective candidates for the
reeveship. It is also said that one or
more of last year's candidates will
again be in the field. If that is so,
it is a sure thing that Edward Gold
will be reeve of South Vancouver
next year.
Citizen Johnson: I agree with Mackenzie. Those councillors who intend to seek re-election should come
to an agreement among themselves
on the policy to be adopted. As Mackenzie says, if there are three or four
candidates for the reeveship, Mr. Gold
will be re-elected as sure as fate. It
is very desirable that there should be
a straight fight between two candidates, and a strong petition should be
presented to the Provincial Government asking for an amendment of the
Municipal Act to allow of a second,
or a third ballot being taken, so as
to ensure tli election of reeve or councillor by a majority vote.
'Citizen O'Brian: The second ballot
is all right if it can be secured, which
is scarcely likely at present. I think
Mackenzie and Johnson are right in
suggesting that all prospective candidates for the reeveship should get
together and agree on a straight fight
at the next election. All the present
councillors would be the better for
another term as councillors before
seekin the reeveship, and there is no
reason why they should not be reelected if they go about the matter in
the right way. But, there is one thing
they should.learn to cut out, if they
wish to serve next year, and that is
Johnson, bow indignant Reeve Gold
was when you and I attended a recent
Council meeting and it was slated that
foreman Mclntyre was responsible
for a ditch being cut too deep? You
remember how lhe reeve told Councillor Allen tliat if he, as chairman of
the sewerage committee, did not fire
Mclntyre right away he would?
Citizen Johnson: I remember the
circumstances quite well.
Citizen Robinson: But did you notice on Tuesday, when Foreman Mclntyre appeared to complain about
his dismissal, how Reeve Gold had
switched round, simply because Mclntyre seemed to have the sympathy
of the audience?
Citizen Johnson: I was not at the
meeting on Tuesday, but from what I
saw in the papers and from what I
have heard, the reeve seemed to sympathise with Mclntyre and to be all
for dismissing Foreman Clarke.
Citizen Robinson: That is Reeve
Gold every time. So long as he thinks
any line of policy is popular he advocates it, but when it is unpopular he
becomes "neutral," or switches "rightabout-face."
Citizen Mackenzie: I was glad to
see Councillor Allen take the reeve Up
on Tuesday and show up his inconsistency. "Did I not advise you, and
was it not understood, that the men
engaged on sewer construction were
to be all sewer men, as this was a business proposition?" asked Reeve
Gold when the enginetr explained that
the foremen were handicapped by
having to accept all sorts and conditions of laborers. Councillor Allen,
very rightly, reminded the reeve of
his famous letter to the council in
which he advocated putting two shifts
of 400 men each to work, two weeks
on and two weeks off. "Just imagine
the inconsistency of the reeve I" said
Councillor Allen. "We must employ
none but sewer men one day, and the
next he suggests that 800 men be put

Columbia Theatre
Largely increased patronage with
consequently greater popularity has
followed the action of the Columbia
theatre management in the new policy
of an augmented programme and higher class acts, which was instituted at
the Columbia just a fortnight ago.
Instead of operating on a split-week
schedule as in the past. Manager Al.
W. Gillis is now offering his patrons
a programme of five vaudeville acts
instead of three and several 'reels of
motion pictures to round out the bill.
The programme also runs the full
week now, enabling a much smoother
show to be presented. Practically
two hours of solid entertainment is
now offered. Columbia patrons for
only a dime at the matinees and 15
cents at the evening performances,
with children admitted for the humble
nickel. For the price, the Columbia
is conceded to offer entertainment
that cannot be surpassed in lhe city.
For next week Manager Gillis has
hooked  a  particularly attractive bill,
headed by that prime of banjoists, Joe
Roberts.     lie   is   a   banjoist   with   all
the attributes of genius, and although
only 24. lias for over six years now
been playing iu lite east and middle
west as a hcadliner on several of the
big circuits. To use a lime-worn
phrase, be can simply make a banjo
talk, and this much abused instrument is shown to possess new tonal
qualities that few performers indeed
can extract from it. Chief among the
supporting acts will be Harry Rowland and the I.azwell Sislers in a comedy singing and dancing act. introducing some notable spectacular features.
Charley Bailey, noted impersonator of
great men. past and present, will offer his unique act, "all the world's a
stage." Ingalls and Duffield, a man
and woman, will be seen and beard
in a comedy singing and-talking act
that comes very highly commended.
And last bul not least, Sam Evans,
a colored ventriloquist, will give a
turn in which comedy predominates,
while at the same time he will demonstrate his marvellous voice control.
New motion pictures, including some
of the very latest releases of the big
film makers, will help to round out
this attractive array of entertainment.
