SOUTH VANCOUVER, B.C., CANADA, SATURDAY, JANUARY 3,  1914
Incorporation
vs. Annexation
Mr. E. Gold Makes Statement
Criticising Arguments for
Incorporation
]  i the Editor of the "Chinook" :
Will you be kind enough to give
publicity to this answer to Mr. Morris' letter, w','c'1 appeared in one of
your  local  contemporaries:
1. Mr. Morris says that incorporation stands for manhood, a strong,
healthy growth, a concentration of
energy, self-reliance and earnest determination of a community to control, as far as possible, its own destiny."
This is simply jumbling words together, without meaning. It is as-
-erting conclusions before laying
down premises and before defining
hi* grounds.
Mr. Morris has not shown, proved
or defined what relation there is between incorporation and manhood,
growth, etc. How is South Vancouver going to develop manhood as a
city any more than at present as a
municipality, or as a part of Vancouver? Taking Mr. Morris' argument
and assuming South Vancouver to be
i babe requiring development,
growth, energy, etc., is it not a fact
that this South Vancouver babe
would develop more rapidly by placing it to the nourishing bosom of
-Mother Vancouver than if fed on its
..\vn "diluted" milk? What have we
in South Vancouver to feed the babe
1. Mr. Morris praises the government at Victoria for looking at this
i-sue from a broad standpoint and
not from a narrow, parochial point of
i iiiv, Is Mr. Morris sincere? Does
he not belong t'o a party which howls
"Down with Bowser!" "Dethrone
McBride!" Is it not true that Mr.
Morris and his party believe that if j
incorporation carries the Liberals '
would be able to elect a member for
I >'.iawa and two for Victoria? Is it
ii"t whispered In Gath and shouted
alcud in Gideon? Does not Mr. Morris claim that the Liberals arc in a
majority in Souti ,rancouver, and
that all they want is incorporation
in order to turn the balance of power
-.11 Vancouver? Mulct South Vancouver tor some millions purchasing
industrial sites, under the guise of
building a city on the banks of the
Eraser, for the benefit of a clique of
property owners there.
3. Mr. Morris asks: "What will
you get by annexation? Will you get
more improvements?" And he answers:    "Certainly not!"
Now Mr. Morris knows that there
i- no comparison whatever between
the improvements in outlying parts
of the city and South Vancouver, i
Compare D. L. 301 with South Van-i
corner. Again, compare Hastings
Townsite with South Vancouver.
These are recent additions to the city
"f Vancouver. They get water,
sewers, more light, better telephone
and cheaper service. They have better
-treets, sidewalks and more conveni-
I nccs.
4.    Mr. Morris asks, "Will you get
cheaper rates  or  lower assessment?"
Me 5ays. "Both would be increased,"
Niw, Mr. Morris knows that he deliberately   misrepresents.      The  facts
are  the  other   way  about.    Here  arc
some interesting figures for you.   On
Sixteenth avenue, city boundary, Lot
27,  D. L. 501.   size   50x125,   on   the
South Vancouver side, taxes for 1913
amount  to  $55  net.     Right   opposite,
"ii the city side of the street, Lot 13
D. L. "E," size 50x125. tas.es for 1913,
$33���twenty-two   dollars   in   favor   of
the city.    On Eraser street, Lots  10
old  25.  size   30x125,   subdivision   391
and 392, South Vancouver, taxes this
year  were $47.88.    One block  nearer
the  city,  and  within  the  city  limits.
Lot 9, Block 5, D. L. 391, size of lot
51x125,   taxes   were   $40    net,    being
$7.80 in favor of the city on a lot almost twice  as large.
The fact of the matter, therefore, is
that if we annex to the city our assessment would come down at least
one-third, and our taxes would be reduced correspondingly, and Mr. Morris cannot deny this. Annexation,
therefore, means many dollars in the
pocket of the property owner and enhanced value of all lands; and now
that Point Grey and Burnaby is in
favor of also joining with us and
strengthening our position for annexation and a Great Vancouver, it
behooves us to stand firm together
and attain the  much-desired object.
Every other argument Mr. Morris
makes is equally erroneous and false,
He says that our financial standing is no worse than Point Grey or
Burnaby. No Worse! Why should
our finances be as bad as Point Grey
or Burnaby? What comparison can
there be between a municipality
with a thousand population and
Sou.th Vancouver with forty thousand inhabitants?
Mr. Morris wants us to think of
the prestige we would gain by incorporation. Prestige seems to be a big
thing with the corporationists. By
calling ourselves a city these gentlemen think we are going to fool the
financial world as to our standing
and   assets.     When   financiers   lend

MAYOR T. S. BAXTER
CANDIDATE FOR RE-ELECTION
ALL the parliamentarians of any note in British Columbia, and all the civic officials of Greater Vancouver and the Municipalities of the Lower Mainland attended at a great banquet held recently to celebrate the inauguration of a natiunal harbor project.
Of orators there was a formidable array.    The subjects allotted the first few speakers   of the evening gave then, great   scope, commensurate
with which was the lineal measurements of their deliverances.
In time, the toast to "Greater Vancouver" was announced, coupled with the name of His Worship Mayor Truman Smith Baxter. His address at
that function was typical of the man.   It took about eight minutes to deliver it and the ground was fully covered.
"We have," said he, "on this western rim of empire the makings of one of the greatest, if nut the greatest city in the world.
"We have a site that could scarcely be improved upon.    We have, and are getting, the great transcontinental railways.   We have great harbors
���both fresh and salt water.    Behind us we have in an undeveloped state greater riches than any man ever dreamed of.   We have the men.
"It is for us to make the best of the blessings that have, been bestowed upon us.  And we can do it, if we have co-operation.
"The interests of Burrard Inlet and the North Eraser Harbor arc identical.   The interests of South Vancouver, Point Grey, Burnaby, New Westminster, the City of Vancouver, and the municipalities adjoining us arc identical.
"We must be big enough, broad enough, brotherly enough, t > bury our petty jealousies  in constructing the Greater Vancouver oi tomorrow.
."We must give and take in the settlement of our 'line fence' difficulties.   W'e must take off our coats and with the common end in view, work on
the building of a solid foundation for the structure of this great city, the completion of which shall be our legacy to those who come after us."
Mayor Baxter is a man of action rather than of words. During the past year we have beard less of him in the daily press than of any chief
magistrate under whose careful administration the city has yet progressed. Vet with the means at bis disposal. Mayor Baxter has accomplished more during his term of office than probably any other win. has occupied that honored position.
There is a reason for this, for Mayor Baxter has been accomplishing the smaller things in city building, which taken in the aggregate, are of
vaster importance than those achievement! in civic life accomplished with the assistance of a brass band.
In the building of the Kingsway, Mayor Baxter was the moving spirit, and this splendid permanently paved highway down the backbone of the
Peninsula will be a lasting monument to his administration and those oi the municipalities the thoroughfare traverses
This work comes under the head of "little things."    It  is on<  which redounds I" the general good of Greater Vancouver.    In it- consummation.
we find the spirit of co-operation.
If we are to lower the high cost of living in Greater Vancouver, wi must tap the farming country about us���must lap and develop these rich
areas. In the rich areas of the Delta sufficient food might be produced to keep the peopli of Greater Vancouver. Mayor Baxter recognizes this, and in
the building of a through road to Ladner, is an object accomplished largelj through the assistance of the Mayor, not of a theatrical character, the benefit
of which should appeal particularly to the consumer who is a wage earner.
"My record for the year is what I intend to make my platform.'  said  Mayor Baxter this week.   "I think that the record of the   council   will
commend itself to all the electors on January 8."
To substantiate this, the mayor took from his pocket the pamphlet containing the platform he had intended to use at the last election in January last   year, but which, owing to bis being elected by acclamation, was never published.
"These," he said, "are the things I promised to do if I should be elected last year.   1 will tell you how many of the promise- 1 have fulfilled."
Taking those planks at the beginning of the list, the mayor said as to Ealse Creek agreement, the public knew that had been completed and ratified by a large majority of the electors.
In the interests of good roads, for which he stood at the last election. Mayor Baxter said that it was not known that he had more to do with
the through road to Ladner across Lulu Island than most people supposed The government had built a wide plank roadway to Woodward's Landing,
giving benefit to the farmers of that district. The road had also been completed practically through to Port Moody in his term of office, and he had
been instrumental in bringing it about as well as the paving of Kingsway.
As to the continuing of a movement to stop the running of interurhan freight and passenger cars on city streets, he said that not much had been
accomplished in that line because of financial reasons, but it had been intended to bring the cars into the city by a back way. and as soon as the financial
market became strong this would be attended to.
The Second Narrows bridge scheme, he said, had been helped along by the city's efforts, and the equitable and impartial  enforcement of the
laws had been adhered to by the City Council.
Mayor Baxter is the man for Greater Vancouver.   If he errs, it will likely be on the side of those good neighbor ^^
Dally not part of the City of Vancouver of 1914.
Election Fight
Growing Keener
Incorporation and the Abolition
of Wards Are Now the Great
Questions
There was a lull in the municipal
campaign activity during the Christmas and New Year holidays, but between times a number of meetings
have been held throughout South
Vancouver, and the contest is becoming keener as the polling day approaches.
Next Wednesday, January 7, the
electors of the municipality will vote
on two important problems, one
whether South Vancouver be incorporated as a city or retain its present
system of municipal government; the
other whether the ward system shall
be abolished or not. In the event of
incorporation being defeated, the
elections for reeve and councillors
takes place on January 17; if incorporation is carried the elections for
mayor and aldermen will be held on
February 2. If both incorporation
and the abolition of wards bylaws are
carried, electors will vote on February 2 for mayor and aldermen irrespective of wards.
The voting is expected to be
heavier than usual, owing to the
great increase in the year's voters'
list. A court of revision for the
voters' list sits on Mondav, January
5.
With regard to the ward system,
its abolition means that electors will
vote for candidates to comprise the
whole council instead of voting for
one ward only.
Since Christmas several meetings
have been held in the municipality in
support of incorporation and the
abolition of wards, at which Reeve
Kerr, Councillor Dickinson, Mr. H.
B, A. Vogel, ex-Councillor Elliott,
School Trustee Morris and others
were the principal speakers. These
meetings were held at Tecumsch
School, Marfcw Hall, Cedar Cottage.
Collingiwood Library, Kalenberg Hall
and Carlct >n Hall. On January 5 a
meeting will Be held at Secord
I School, and ou Januarv 6 one at
i N'rJrth Arm School.
There appears to be as yet t\\v
definite changes to announce .as to
new candidates or retirements, !?ccvc
Kerr. Mr. J. C, McArthur and Mr.
Thomas Dickie still remain in the
field as candidates for the reeveship
mayorship, as the case may be.
In Ward 7 Mr. J. C. Gibson has
been asked to become a candidate but
has not yet given a definite decision.
Mr. J. C. McArthur at the incorporation meeting last week at Tecumsch Hall announced his intention to
follow all the meetings up in the interests of annexation as against incorporation.
A new phase has been introduced
in the South Vancouver elections by
the formation of a Women Voters'
Association, with ladies appointed to
represent each ward as announced in
last week's "Chinook." In addition
to the board of directors whose names
have already been given, the following executive officials have been appointed : President, Mrs. F. Patterson: first vice-president. Mrs. Woods;
second vice-president. Mrs W. A.
McConkey; secretary. Mrs Knight,
and  treasurer,  Mrs.  Young.
On Monday night, Mr. J. C. McArthur held a meeting at Tccuntseh
School in opposition to incorporation,
in which he and other speakers traversed the statements made in its

with civic g 1 government were dis-

to interest themselves in the municipal elections and exercise their fran-

In Ward 5 Mr. E, Gold has as yet
the field to himself. Mr. Gold, who is
a strong advocate of annexation and
opposes incorporation, is not likely,
from present appearances, to be opposed if incorporation is defeated on
January 7. There Is reported, however, to be a dark horse in training
as an opponent to Mr. Gold. In the
meantime. Mr. Gold is following up
the meetings being held in support
of incorporation and is severely
criticising the proposal, as well as the
present reeve and council, in the columns   of  the  press.

Neelands, school trustee for South
Vancouver, will run for ro-election.
During the term just expiring, the
hoard has accomplished some good
work. In 1!U2 four mutual training
centres were established which are
now in full operation. A doctor and
nurse have been engaged to look after
the health of the pupils. A fair-wage
clause has been inserted in all contracts let by the trustees. All applications for appointments must be advertised for. When enabling legislation was passed by the provincial
government, the board appointed two
attendance officers. Four schools,
costing approximately $160,000, have
been erected, and various other things
done that go to establish a high state
of efficiency of the schools of South
Vancouver. Mr. Neelands' record is
a good one and The Federatlonlst bespeaks for him In recognition for his
valuable services his re-election for
1914. He Is well known to a large
number of worklngmen, being the secretary of Typographical Union No.

Advertising space is valuable, because the book is in use

their minds awakened. There arc

with one great hand Mr. Edison held
his powerful arm helpless against his
side. "Just as if you tied up your arm
and carried it round that way for a
while," he said. "When you take the

desire for the progress and development of South
Vancouver.
NEW   YEAR  PROSPECTS
WITH renewed confidence in the brightening
prospects for greater prosperity than has gone
before, the residents of South Vancouver can enter
the year 1914.
The year that has just run its course has been one
of financial depression here as in other parts of the
Dominion. In South Vancouver the prolonged stringency in the money markets of the world has entailed
lack of employment ami consequent hardships. Notwithstanding the ultra pessimists who, like the poor,
are always with us, South Vancouver has stood the
strain of hard times as well, if not better, than any
other part of Greater Vancouver.
Nor did the year 1913 end without substantial and
welcome signs of better financial conditions. A considerable portion of municipal bonds were sold, and
negotiations for the sale of the remainder practically
completed on favorable terms. It may, therefore, be
confidently stated, that the municipality begins the
new yeai in a much stronger financial position than
six months ago.
Several important public works, such as road paving, trunk sewers and other improvements are now
in progress or will proceed early in the year. The
paving of Main street, for instance, by the Dominion
Creosoting Company commenced this week. That
work alone will be of incalculable benefit to the whole
municipality.
Another public undertaking which will be actively
prosecuted during the early part of the year is the
North Arm of the Fraser improvement scheme. A
few days ago it was announced that the Dominion
Government is only waiting the appointment of an engineer when work on the jetty and the dredging of
the mouth of the North Arm to a distance of five
miles inland will be immediately commenced. The
ultimate result of a great North Fraser harbor at the
"very door" of South Vancouver, cannot fail to immeasurably enhance the industrial prospects of the
municipality. It may be safely predicted, indeed, that
South Vancouver, with its splendid industrial sites,
is destined to become the manufacturing centre of
Greater Vancouver.
Considering these and other plans of development
now in progress or to be begun this year, the people of
South Vancouver have reason to expect during 1914
a prosperous new year for the municipality. May it
also be a happy year for each of our readers.
RISKS -IXI> OBLIGATIONS
IT is pretty widely known that the average loss of
lives on American railroads is very much higher
than in Great Britain, taking into account mileage of
lines and number of passengers carried. This applies, of course, both to passengers and railway employees. Various causes for the disparity have been
mentioned, but an American journal narrowed them
down to the two main reasons that in Great Britain
the roadbeds were better made, and that the officials
exercised greater care m the performance ol their
duties.
But whatever the reasons may be. the one essential result is that in the Old Country greater regard
is paid to the safety of the public than appears to prevail in the United States or probably any other country. That is so, not only as regards railways, but in
practically every other public convenience as well as
in industries of various kinds:
As regards industries, for example, the interior department of the United States has just issued a re-
| port showing the ten-year average of men killed in
American collieries as compared with those of Great
Britain, Germany and France. In that report it is
e of men killed in American mine
was 2279; in Great Britain 1210; in Germany 1017.
and in France 309. These figures, of course, are pro
rata to the number of men employed, for it is shown
that while the United States employs 607,438 men in
their mines, Great Britain employs 840,434. Comparing these two countries alone, the deaths per thousand employed averaged 3.47 in the United States and
1.36 in Great Britain.
These facts will, perhaps, not appeal so much to
those who only burn wood in their stoves or who have
their steam, hot air or gas heating apparatus. But although the mortality statistics as regards Canada are
not available, much of the coal used in the province
comes from across the lines. In considering, therefore, the grievances of the miners and of those who
risk their lives for the convenience of the public in
other directions, it is well that we should bear in mind
our obligations to those who delve in the earth that
we may keep warm in the winter, as well as those
who man our ships or run our "iron horses."

THE  QUESTION OP IXCORPORATION
NEXT Wednesday, January 7, the electors of
South Vancouver will be called upon to vote
for or against incorporation. H is not a matter of incorporation versus annexation, as some people seem
to imagine, but whether the municipality is to be
forthwith incorporated as a city, or remain under its
present system of civic government. Incorporation
and annexation are not necessarily antagonistic methods. As a matter of fact, many electors who favor
annexation to. the city of Vancouver will vote for incorporation as a step in that direction.
It cannot be too clearly understood that if the
electors of South Vancouver decide on incorporation,
the fact of the municipality becoming a city does not
preclude its ultimate annexation to, or amalgamation
with, the city of Vancouver. One of the reasons, indeed, why those who still favor annexation will also
vote for incorporation, is that they believe that the
latter course will hasten the amalgamation of South
Vancouver with the city of Vancouver. If the statements made by the premier of the province and by the
Vancouver mayor and aldermen, are to be relied upon,
neither the government nor the city are prepared, apparently for a few years, to accede to the annexation
of South Vancouver or the other municipalities which
constitute Greater Vancouver. Until, therefore, all
these civic bodies are ready for amalgamation with
Vancouver, the annexation of South Vancouver
seems to lie indefinitely in abeyance.
Another reason why those wdio are desirous of annexation will likewise vote for present incorporation
is that as a city South Vancouver will require no special government legislation to obtain annexation to
Vancouver. People in the municipality have already
seen, on various occasions, how indifferent or even
antagonistic the present government is to the interests of South Vancouver.
Whether, however, incorporation carries or not, or
whether the present reeve and council is re-elected or
replaced by other members, it surely   behooves   all
AN ELEVATING  INFLUENCE
THE formation of a Women's Voters' Association
in South Vancouver is of particular significance
at the present time. It indicates that not only are the
women ratepayers of the municipality taking a greater
interest in civic affairs now than in the past, but that
they desire their point of view and convictions on such
matters to bear some weight in the election of members for the council and school board.
Such influence has always been exercised directly
or indirectly, by women in past municipal elections, to
an appreciable degree and generally to the advantage
of the community. Then, is good reason to believe,
however, that there is a large proportion of women
ratepayers who do not take advantage of their right
to vote in municipal elections, and the Women Voters'
Association has been organized with the purpose of
arousing more active interest in civic good government.
It has been found in Canada and other countries
where women possess the municipal franchise that th<
general tendency has been to exercise it toward purer
and more disinterested government. Above all, from
the nature of their environment and interests, women
add the home or domestic element to the consideration
of civic problems, That view-point in the discussion of municipal and school board matters is of especial value and helps to refine the too sordid aspect of
public life.

A   HUMANE   UTTERANCE
THE rebuke administered from the bench by Justice
Morrison to the Rev. Dr. Fraser for his outspoken strictures on the government and the mine
owners of Xanaimo has met with little approval from
anyone except the officials indicted. Although it
was mainly due to the supincness or bungling of the
Tory government, unprejudiced Conservatives and
Liberals alike, throughout the province arc on the
side of the miners. As men with humane instincts,
stronger than their political affiliations, they admire
Dr. Eraser's championship of the miners' cause. They
endorse his sentiment that it is the mine owners rather
than the mine workers who ought to be in prison.
But having a bad cause, the leaders of the Conservative party must needs defend it with bad arguments.
Mr. H. H. Stevens, M. P., for instance, recently tried
to bolster up the government's case with scriptural allusions to the maintenance of law and order. He
asked, in effect, whether, if Christ came to Vancouver,
or Nanaimo He would not preach and advise the strict
observance of the law. Mr. Stevens and those who
employ such arguments have forgotten that Jesps
Christ insisted upon not the "letter but the spirit" of
the law. They have forgotten that Christ was a man
of the people, whose sympathies were always wi
Al.l. THE VANCOUVER papers rendered splendid
service in collecting Christmas funds. The Province
particularly made a record for Canada   in newspaper
funds of the kind by compiling the magnificent sum
of $8000 from its readers.
A LITTLE OTTAWA girl, believing'that Santa
Clans was on his way last week from the North Pole
to Canada, wrote to Stefansson, the explorer, now in
the Arctic regions, asking him to deliver a letter she
had written to Santa Claus, in which she mentioned
the particular kind of presents she and her brothers
and sisters would like. A wee boy in South Vancouver does not believe that St. Nicholas comes from the
North Pole; he say.- he belongs to Toronto.
"NOW IS THE WINTER of our discontent" with
the present municipal government, is the burden of
the chorus sung by Messrs. T. Dickie, E. Gold and
some other candidates in South Vancouver.
*    ��    ��
MIL J( MIX OEIV'ER has been elected mayor of l'ort
\rthur by acclamation. This is not "honest John" of
the Delta though.
A REAL ESTATE firm in Hastings street, Vancouver, announces in his office window that "We sell the
earth."    In Main street, a few days ago, there was a
REEVE McGREGOR OK BURNABY, having had
useful experience in collecting money for that nut
nicipality, successfully essayed the pleasant task of
collecting for a Santa Claus fund when a passenger
on the new B. C. E. R. line. The other passenger
simply couldn't resist the genial reeve; besides, In-
had them in a corner.

THE HINDU WHO dropped on his knees and tried
to worship a Vancouver constable the other day received so little encouragement that he did not offer
to worship his worship when brought before him next
morning.

"ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL" will be tin
favorite paean of praise of Messrs. Kerr, Councillot
Dickinson and some other candidates if they are reelected; but it will be "love's labor lost" if incorpora
tion fails to carry.
V    *   V
A G< X )D MAXY people seem to have resented the
action of dragging the Xanaimo prisoners shackle i
through the public streets, referred to recently in these
columns. The other day Rev. Dr. Fraser said: "I
know of no cruder or more barbaric spectacle than
that of a body of fine men being manacled and sent t<>
jail, which scene I beheld recently."

SOUTH VANCOUVER RESIDENTS are not tin
only people who want an adequate public market, Mr.
L. D. Taylor, candidate for the mayorship of Van
couver, also advocates a bigger market for the cit\
and a string of markets throughout Greater Vancouver.
THE HIGH-GRADER'S CORNER
Flag Lunatics in China, Too.
Montreal Herald.
A Chinese society hoisted the flag of their country over the building they occupied in Chicago, and
a corporal in the United States army immediately
climbed the pole, with the assistance of a policeman,
and tore the bunting down, while a crowd cheered
wildly. Xot even the emblem of the nevrest republic
is sacred to the flag fiends.
*   *   *
"Wild West" Doings.
Toronto Star.
At Quebec an Indian has been shooting at a bridge
foreman and in Montreal one boy is charged with
shooting another in approved hold-up style. The
enthusiastic youth who occasionally comes to Canada
from the other side of the ocean in the belief that
this is a country where "wild west" doings are the
order bus sonic excuse for his delusion.
*    *    *
What a Wise City Does.
Calgary Albertan.
Now Vancouver is endeavoring to buy  out  the
street railway service, which it may do at an enormous price.    The wise city is the one that gets the
grip on its railway service at the beginning.
A Great Factor.
Farmers' Tribune.
Thomas A. Edison improves with age.   He says he
has come to the conclusion that "the greatest factor
in progress has been the newspaper press."
* *    *
Saving the Empire.
Toronto Star.
Those who regarded both tariff reduction and
wiijsM^uiaikcts as mi evil may nt leasl congratulate
theffi^Wk upon saving one-half of the barrier.
Wider markets may draw us toward annexation,
but taxed food may save us. "Though much be
taken, much abides." Though our cattle trot across
the American border, the Empire and the nation may
be saved by our own duties on pork and potatoes.

Lady Cheylesmore's Joke.
New York Herald.
Shooting barnyard fowl!    This is what English
,'oeiety of a sporting turn is doing, if Lady Cheyles-
more and the New York Custom House are right on
the plumage question. Lady Cheylesinore arrived
here last Friday wearing pheasant feathers in her
hat, and no scissors were applied when she argued
that in England pheasants are on a par with tame
ducks and other barnyard fowl.
A Native Born Navy.
New York Herald.
Out. of a total force of forty-eight thousand more
than forty-four thousand are native born and less
than five thousand are of foreign birth, and of tin
latter seventeen hundred only are non-residents ol
the country. This Americanizing of the service has
been a sturdy plant of healthy growth.
*    ��    ��
The Food Taxes.
Victoria Times.
There is said to be only one Canadian newspaper
left that has the courage to defend taxes on food.
We are almost sure the solitary one is not published
in British Columbia, There is no one left here now
with sufficient assurance to rise up and tell the work-
ingman that high prices mean constant employment
at high wages.
��   ��   ���
FREE FOOD
Brantford Expositor.
The important deliverance made by Sir Wilfrid
Laurier at Hamilton, in favor of the entire removal
of the import duties on food products, is certain t"
appeal strongly to the urban population of the country, who see a slackening of employment accompanied by a continued advance in the cost of living.
��   ��   ��
The Twin Towns and Their Brotherly Love.
Port Arthur "News.
A Fort William street car was burning in the
Port Arthur barns.   This may be expected to act as
another boost to the healthy rivalry which exists.

i with the main theme oi money wor-

overbearing and arrogant specimen
of the capitalist llayliss is after
Gresham's Bwcetheart a- well as his

some wonderfully effective settings,

deck of Bayliss' ocean yacht, and the
| fourth in the office of a New York

When Samuel Wexford departed this

Young   Rain   Wexford,   sitting  In  a
shabby little office, waiting for clients
which somehow teemed prone to overlook his legal ability, nearly fell over

Margaret  lived   in   the  suburbs,  so
Margaret read it and gasped, "Good-
I ness, you're a rich man. Bammy," said
{she.
"I ibould worry now.' tald he. "Put
on   your bonnet  and  shawl and  we'll
go back iii the taxi and he married."
"We'll do nothing of the sort," said
she.
"Huh!"  said  Sammy,  Quite   floored
j by her tone.    "Well, why not?"
I    She did not answer at once.    Before
I she  finally   spoke   she   took    a    deep
breath.    It came forth as a sigh.
"This may change your whole life,
Sammy," said she. "This fortune may
change your whole outlook on life, ft
has happened before. I want to be
sure you know your mind and are not
doing anything from impulse. Therefore, we'll let you try for a year being
a rich man before we marry."
"Huh!" said Sammy again. "Oh, I
say, Margaret "
But Margaret was obdurate. Long

In- walked sedately up tin. porch.
"What a long time since you'vi  I a
here," said she.
Sammy said lie had been wt>   bi i-.

"Quite so," said Sammy with heav\
portent.
"I���er���say, Margaret," laid he ai
length. "I want to thank you for what
you did for me when I was here last
time. That little matter of not lettine
me lose my head, you know."
Margaret looked a little frightened
"Er���hang it! I don't just know
ihow to put it," said he, "but it wai
mighty fine of you to���to make me
realize what riches really meant, you
' know, I���er "
"Oh, yes. I knew you didn't know
I your own mind then," she said lightly.
"I thought it would make a difference.
Are you trying to tell me about Miss
Carruthers and yourself?'
"Kr- y<s.    Quite  ��� .'  said  Bammy
rouily.      "We gaged,    you

Tin car whizzed away. But at the
Drat corner it stopped and Sammy got
out. He dodged through a yard, shot
across an open field, and came by a
flank movement to the porch. He tiptoed up to It. Behind the vines he
heard unrestrained sobbing. It seemed
to be a sound he desired, for he
grinned broadly, and then bounded up
the steps. In a minute he had her,
struggling, in his arms.
"Cut it out, dear, cut it out," he was
pleading. "I'm not engaged to Mis?
Carruthers. I never was and never
will be I wanted to throw a scare
into you."
"You have," she. sobbed.
"So you've got sense at last, have
you? Well, will you marry me right
away?" he urged.
"Any time, Sammy," she wept contritely on his shoulder.

Sam fished in his pockets, found he
had just about enough to take a taxi
out, hailed one, climbed in, and all the
way out to Rosemount he made the
chauffeur's life miEetable by sticking
his head out the window and begging
for more speed.
It was a warm May ariernoon. Margaret sat on the porch of the house
embroidering, or maybe she was darning her father's stocks.
"Why, Sammy Wexford!" she ciied,
dropping the embroidery���or the socks
���and gazing at him with marked dis-
! approval. "What on earth do you
mean, coming out here at this time of
!day, and in a taxi?"
Sam lumbered up the, steps, and,
j despite the fact that the taxi chauf-
I feur as well as several of the neigh-
\ bors on their front porches could see
quite plainly, he caught Margaret in
his arms.
"Hang the clients, hang the law,
hang everything!" bawled Sam. "We
don't have to wait any longer. We
get married today. My Uncle Sam has
Just died out in Colorado and left me
laquillloni and squilllons of dollars!"
Margaret managed to wriggle from
hiB too ardent embrace. Severelj
she smoothed down her hair, and severely she hade the exuberant Sammy
sit down in a chair.
"Read this!" He hauled out the
telegram which was the cause of his
seeming Insanity.
and fluently did Sammy Wexford argue
lor immediate marriage.
"You try out your llc.ies for a year
first," she held out firmly. "You may
have all these dollars, but 1 have
sense.   You wait and see."
At eight that evening Sammy bit
her, angry, hurt, amazid at her attitude. He walked glumly b:ck to town,
muttering to himself all the way as he
went.
"She says with all this money 1 may
imeet some other girl.    She says she
j doesn't intend for  me to  make  any
I mistakes  I'm  going to  he sorry  for,'
I he complained bitterly to himself as he
went along.   "And I wanted to he mar
I ried and go abroad at once.    Ham it,
I who  ever  heard  of such  foolishness?
; Another girl, hey?"
!    Sammy    stopped    and    caught    his
i breath.    Then he fell to slapping  hia
iknee and laughing Immoderately,
I    "I should worry!" observed Sammy
Sammy   did   not   go  to  the   Norths
again for some time,    Indeed, it was :i
month   before   he   appeared.     In   the
! meantime Rumor was linking Sammy
Wexford's name with the beautiful and
wealthy  Miss Carruthers, daughter ol
I the street railway magnate,   Strangely
I enough, Sammy himself seemed to en-
Joy the rumors: nor did he deny them;
'nor did  he hesitate lo be seen  much
in Miss Carruthers' society.
On  this  second  afternoon  Bammv
went out  to the   Norths' again  he did

Home Dressmaking.
"Home dressmaking Is a matter of
careful basting," said a woman who,
without any Instruction whatever,
made the prettiest dresses Imaginable.
This, too, was before the days of the
modern high class pattern. So with
careful basting, and one of the new
patterns, there is no reason why certain gowns in the 'wardrobe should
not be successfully made by the veriest tyro.
Every one has some kind of a dress
form at home now. A standing figure
may be bought for a few dollars in
I some of the shops. The difficulty of
the inexpensive forms is that the pro-
' portions are not always rieht. If,
however, the hip size Is right (for it
is likely to be too large for the rest of
the figure), the matter is easily remedied. Nearly every one has at home
an old waist lining or waist that fitted
beautifully. If the surplus trimming
and material are ripped or cut oft it
the affair Is simple. This is tried over
I a dress form till one is found that it
fits nearest. Then all that 1b necessary is to stuff out the spaces between
the form and the lining where it does
not fit, with excelsior, cotton wadding,
old newspaper, and there you have the
form on which to hang, trim or fit
your waists.
The skirt is done in the same manner. An old petticoat that fits over the
hips is stuffed out in the same way,
and it is a good idea in these days of
narrow skirts to weight the hem of it.
If one of the dress formB that will tit
every member of the family can be
invested in, of course this simplifies
matters. If not, the time taken to
make the other will amply repay the
woman who makes at least Bome of
her frocks at home.
*   *   *
Modes In Ribbons.
The latitude afforded in the present
modes for ribbon trimming and decoration and the extreme vogue for
sashes and the new waistcoats give
opportunity for unusual and effective
use of ribbons.
Manufacturers, alert to the occasion,
have been working overtime, and the
result of their efforts to produce something out of the ordinary )s best evidenced by a strol' through the big
shops.
Audacious color schemes mark the
new riobons, and these vivid toneB
and combinations spell the secret of
success when the ribbons are put on
with the correct touch.
Velvet ribbons, In narrow, medium
and wide widths, naturally in this pronounced velvet season, have come in
for a wide share of popular favor. As
to patterns it is impossible to give
adequate description in type. There
are entrancing Egyptian and Persian
designs in more colors than the rainbow ever possessed. Floral effects,
brilliant and bold, on light and dark
grounds. French faille, satin, moire,
plaid, stripe and plain color ribbons
are  all   employed   for  the  embellish
ment   of   millinery,   blouseB,   frocks
coats, etc.
Ribbon trimmed hats are shown b]
all   the  important  milliners  of  Paris
From  one  comes a cute  little clnchi
shape   with   red   rose   and   leaves   ol
green  in  satin  ribbon,  stiffly placed
Another perches a saucy bow of white
groB  grain  ribbon  pointing  over the
left eye from one of the four corners
of a velvet shape.    A  third  wraps a
black and white stripe ribbon around
a  close  shape  of  black   velvet,  one
wired   end   standing   directly   in   the
middle  of the  front  like  a sail.    A
fourth shows a blue velvet shape with
a Nattier blue velvet ribbon twisted
around the crown on one side, crossed
over the brim in the back and brought
around against the hair to knot in two
tall loops In front.
The ribbon girdle Imparts the disjunctive note to many of the new
tailor-made and afternoon gowns. For
example, on a tailored suit of dark
jblue cloth a handsome ribbon in Oriental colorings is folded twice around
the waist and fastened at the back,
[toward the left, with a Bhlrred motif
lot the ribbon! Moire ribbon is much
favored for girdles.
* *   *
Heat Holders.
Although the iron of your gas and
oil stoves is a good conductor of heat,
it is not a good radiator. To increase
the radiating power of your stoves,
firebricks or tile may be laid on top
of the heaters. These bricks or tile
are the best of radiators, holding the
heat for hours, and will help materially in keeping your rooms at an even
temperature.
Where the heat of the kitchen range
is utilized to warm adjoining rooms
place a number of firebricks In the
oven. When the oven is not in use
open the door and you will have a constant wave of heat even after the fire
is out. On very cold nights these
bricks may be wrapped In newspapers
and flannel and used as bed warmers.
The stone radiators that are used in
the tireless cookers are also useful for
thiB purpose. *
* *   *
Black Velvet Bracelets.
It has now become fashionable in
Paris to wear a broad bracelet of black
velvet on the left arm. It fits the
wrist snugly. By the way, black ornaments are becoming more fashionable
each day. The evening gowns, the
black oilcloth rose for afternoon
gowns and morning hats, the black
velvet bracelet at dinners and theatre,
and now Callot is using large pieces
of black onyx jewellery Bet with seed
pearls to fasten the front of a tulle
bodice.
One can buy these ornaments in
Paris and attach them to the gown as
one would a rose. The effect is immensely good when the gown is of
white tulle or white satin, with a
drapery of silver lace.
* ��   *
Mirror Feature.
A triple mirror which possesses one
or two new features is larger than the
average size used and is made of
nickel with bevel glass. Just under
the centre mirror is a small drawer
which has a mirror fitted in the top.
The arrangement gives a woman a
view of her face, neck and chin from
every point. And the drawer is useful
for holding small toilet articles.

Voters of South Vancouver
SOME REASONS
WHY we should on January 7th next
KILL
Both Reeve Kerr's  Bylaws for  Incorporation and to
Abolish the Ward System
1.���INCORPORATION MEANS much lower land values than if we were
ANNEXED to the City of Vancouver.
2.���We would have to pay the Mayor $4,000 per annum then instead of $300 as
at present.
3.���It means INCREASED and only one REAL source of TAXATION for
internal development in upkeep of a full City Hall staff, police, jails, hospitals, fire-halls, and so on.
4.���Incorporation will give more powers for EXPLOITING Electric Light and
Gas Plant and PAVING Contrac s and the MANIPULATION of Industrial Site Purchases from the CLIQUE on the Banks of the Fraser.
5.���It would mean the loss to us of about $150,000 per annum in Government
Grants for our schools and trunk road pavements.
6.���Incorporation means DOUBLE postage, car fare and telephone, higher water rates, higher interest and mortgages harder to secure from loan companies, higher insurance.
7.���Incorporation means the loss of at least $100,000 and higher interest on
every million dollar sale of bonds as we have no assets like the City of
Vancouver to BOLSTER us up and our property is now ASSESSED and
TAXED more than property adjoining the City of Vancouver. This Council has PAWNED and given an option to the Bank of Montreal to buy or
sell $2,116,425 of our bonds at 85 cents on the $1.00, payable in London.
8.���'Tis true if we abolish the Wards we could then vote for all the Councillors,
but they may run from a POPULATED CENTRE and be UNKNOWN
to the voters at large. Montreal and other cities tried abolishing the wards
but had to return to the ward system.
VOTERS! This is Reeve Kerr and his Council's TRUMP CARD played
at the last and eleventh hour, THE LAST STRAW and their only hope to get
back in power.
VOTERS this is VITAL to us. DO YOUR DUTY JANUARY 7 and
BURY these TWO BYLAWS. SOUTH VANCOUVER has had ENOUGH

Leading Planks in My Platform
Below will be found several of the planks of my platform
which 1 am pleased to put before the electors of South Vancouver.
It is not ray intention to make a personal canvass but I will appear
in the various wards to fully discuss the issues before the ratepayers, after which I will leave my election in the hands of the
people.
1. Retrenchment and   economy in all departments.
2. To demand efficiency from the heads of all departments
and other employees.
3. Owing to the financial stringency. I am in favor of increasing the indemnity of the Reeve and Council.
4. I am opposed to the letting of any contract or contracts
without tenders having first been called for.
I am in favor of Municipal Ownership of all public util
ities.
6. If elected, I will demand of the late commissioner,
through the Government, that all charges against members of
previous Councils and School Boards, and evidence in support
thereof, which have not appeared in the Public Enquiry, be
placed before the Council.
7. That I will at all times endeavor to keep in close touch
with the wants of the people, and have all matters of Municipal
importance discussed in public before incurring further expense
on the ratepayers.
8. I will urge on the joint sewerage committee the necessity
for the early installation of the sewerage system for the Municipality, and will aid them in every way possible in the carrying out
of the work.
9. Encouragement of industries.
10. No increase in liquor licenses.
11. Owing to the present conditions I am in favor of annexation.
INCORPORATION
VS. ANNEXATION
(Continued from Page 1)
tn.iney to anyone their question is
what are the aiietf. the income, tin
revenue? Not is it a city, or a town
or a mountain, or a river, or a val
ley?
Yon can   incorporate    South   Van
euiiver a dozen limes, but thai ivmi'l
bring you any greater Source of revenue, more  utilities nor any more industries.
Wc have proved Mr. Morris' arguments false, his assertions baseless,
and we challenge him to show us one
single benefit South Vancouver will
receive by incorporating, while we,
on the other hand, will how him
numerous benefits wc will receive by
annexing to Vancouver; and immediately if incorporated as the City of
South Vancouver we lose the government grants to our schools
and trunk roads amounting to about
$150,000.
Now a word about Mr. Morris.
The ratepayers of South Vancouver
should remember that he is the person who advocated the school funds
should be absolutely under the school
trustees' control, and who has this
year been the chief instigator of the
movement to pay 65 cents per hundred more for fire insurance on
school property than was paid last
year.
This Mr. Morris is also the "embryo" Liberal premier of Canada in
the "embryo" mock parliament at
Collingwood, and who asserts on
every occasion that the Conservative
majority at Victoria is too top-
heavy.
I mention these things to prove
that Mr. Morris' remarks arc insincere, and this very man is seeking
election both as school trustee and
councillor   for Ward' I.
Mr. Stuart Campbell, councillor
for Ward VII. on the banks of the
Fraser, who calls himself the father
of incorporation, has as a last resort
put through a bylaw to abolish the
different wards throughout the municipality, which bylaw will he voted
upon at the same time as the incorporation bylaw on Jan. 7. Ratepayers, beware, do not be gulled!
You all know the present financial
condition of South Vancouver���
brought about by Reeve Kerr and his
councillors. Imagine, then this
reeve and council running riot by
being given greater powers through
incorporation and abolishing the
ward system.
Every ratepayer, therefore, who
has the interest of South Vancouver
at heart, will cast his vote on Jan.
7 next against these unasked for and
iniquitous bylaws, as we had better
remain as we are until we unite with
the City of Vancouver���which is
South Vancouver's only salvation.

sufflcient merit to go before the ratepayers as a whole we are much better
without them.
If you vote the proposition down It
cannot come up again for twelve
months, and probably not then, as it
was a big fight on the part of Councillors Campbell and Dickinson to get
it before the ratepayers even at this
late hour.
It is admitted by all parties that
there has been great waste of municipal funds In the past under the ward
system, and now we want by some
means to get honest and capable men
into the council no matter who they
are, or where they live, otherwise
there will soon be nothing left, even
for the ward grafters.
I would ask all ratepayers to come
out and vote in favor of abolishing
the ward Bystem, and if successful, you
will��iiave eight votes instead of two,
and further, you will have the right
to approach any member of the council to get justice, without being told
he is sorry, but you are not in his
ward.

SPORT FOR  CHILDREN.
To the Editor of the Chinook.
Sir,���Looking over the llBt of probable candidates for. municipal honors
I find it strange that only one out of
the many candidates mentions "sport."
This Is a most Important thing to our
children, as indirectly It leads to good
health through life.    We have now a
Reeve J. A. Kerr Outlines His Policy
for South Vancouver
1 have served the Municipality as Reeve fur the past two years,
and I am sure that all will agree they have been the most strenuous
years, possibly, in the history of our Municipality. My policy has
always been a progressive one. 1 believe that .South Vancouver should
advance. We must not stand still nor rest, as this would mean goin��
backward; but progress must be tempered with care and economy.
Early in 1913 the Council along with the Council of Vancouver
city, went to the Government petitioning them to pass a bill for tin
annexation of South Vancouver to the city.    You know the outcome
I am in favor of doing everything possible to strengthen our lire
department.
Wc must continue our endeavors along the lines of securing a
permanent water supply. Very much has been accomplished during
the past two years regarding this most vital necessity.
I  favor the encouragement of industries in our Municipality.
I would also favor the erecting at the earliest possible date of an
electric plant fur the supplying of cheaper light in our Municipality,
as well as cheaper power.
I favor Municipal ownership of our public utilities.
In closing 1 wish to say that if returned for the year 1914, I will, as
in the past, endeavor to serve the best interests of all, always endeavoring to uphold the credit and dignity  of  our   Municipality.
