Dr. Brydone-Jack has allowed his
uathe to be placed in nomination as
Alderman for Ward V. The Doctor
only consented to run after much

Man. The Doctor is a long-time real-

To the Elector, of the City of Vancouver:
Ladles and Gentlemen,—As It Is my Intention to seek, your suffrages tor the
honorable position ot Mayor of this City
for the year 1904, I think It proper that
1 should place before you my views on
civic matters which I deem to be of Im
I. I believe In the policy of economy
In all departments, coupled with efficiency and a due regard to the require'
ments of all parts of the City.
>. I advocate the observance of all regulations tending to the maintenance of
order and the suppression of vice in the
City, having due regard to the long ex
perlence of older and larger cities In all
parts of the world.
3. I favor the appointment ot a Board
of Police Commissioners to regulate the
Police Department, reserving power to
the City Council to control expenditure.
at, 1 am of the opinion that Cottage
Hospitals of modern design should be
erected for the purpose of Isolating and
treating the various forms of epidemic
diseases to which all cities are liable In
this manner only can the spread of Infectious diseases be effectually stamped
6. I recognise that owing to tbe growing sea-gi.ng traffic of the Port of Vancouver, a Board of Harbor Commissioners Ib very desirable, more especially as
the City now owns the whole of Fals^
Creek and a comprehensive scheme for
utilising the same will have ere long to
be devised.
6. I am in favor of having all the
City's rights In respect to foreshore ami
street ends fully protected and enforced,
and that the public should be protected
at railway crossings.
7. I am In favor of the admission ot all
railways to the City under due safeguards
far the public Interest.
8. I believe the time has come when
a public market could be operated to advantage In some central position on the
water front, and that such a convenience
would attract considerable additional business to the City, and provide a cheaper
supply ot garden and farm produce for
the citizens.
». The rapid growth of outlying portions of the City demands that sewers
shall be constructed there as soon aa possible; also a practical scheme devised, In
co-operation with the Park Commissioners, for the purpose of enabling the cltl-
xens to derive more pleasure nnd benefit
from the several small parka and English Bay property recently acquired by
tha City.
10. I heartily support the efforts being
made to have the tramway lines extended
to the Cemetery, and a reasonable appropriation made for beautifying the
Cemetery, by planting trees, etc.
II. I believe the City should take Im
mediate steps to acquire the Kllaala In
dlan Reserve at the mouth of False Creek,
to be available tor exhibitions or any
other public purposes.
12. During my seven years on the
School Board I have worked In tho Interests of higher education, and the fad
that Vancouver College Is nnw afffllatsd
with McOlll University for the first
two years In Arts, shows that my efforts as a member of the Board, and ns
Secretary of the British Columbia McOlll
rjmiluates' Society, have not been with'
out decided benefit to Vancouver. Further I believe that thousands of dollars
are annually sent out of the City and
Province to an American Institution of
technical education. I would favor the
establishment of technical classes
In Vancouver to the extent of
reasonable appropriation by the City tn
aid In the establishment of such classes
for the benefit ot our mechanics,
draughtsmen and members of other
In conclusion I beg to remind the elect
ors that I have resided continuously In
this City since 1S86. and have watched Its
growth from a small village to Ha present position of the premier City In British
Columbia, and during all that tlmo to tho
beat of my ability have assisted nnd sup
ported  every   measure   put  forward  for
I am. yours faithfully,

"Ahem! true for you," said Dnrgnu,
with a Sigh. 'I'm sure it would take halt
a day to tell all the trouble ami toil I've
hud'with the Vivian estate, to say n»:h-
ing of the valuable time it has taken up,
and not even twenty pounds for n mourning" ring to reward me. Yon know, old
Tilly and me, we are executors ns well
as guardians, and every blessed bit of
work lias fallen to my share. Of course,
I'd gladly do my best for the minor. Me
and my sister look upon her as our own
< hild, that we do." Here he took a
pOuch of snuff to hide the intensity of bis
feelings, and waited for a reply. Beaton, however, onCy bowed assent. "As
1 said," resumed Dargan, "I'd do anything for tbe doaT child, but I am a poor,
111-111; my time Is my money, and I have
spent hours, ay, months, upon her."
"I begin to*understand," said Beaton,
leaning forward, bis elbows on his knees
and ins chin on his hands.   "Pray go on."
"You arc not a busipess mam, Mr. Benton," continued' Dargan, with an in-
uluu.iting grill, "you nre above these sort
Of things; but I had a very sensible letter from a young man 1 once pulled
through nn awkward fix, nnd who has
trlnce shot ahead and made a lot of
money. He wrote on spec, and thinking
be might suit, I answered him much
about the time you wrote: then, whoa
M r. Tally thouybt you the likeliest party
of the two, r'ppt hirn off. Just look at
hla view of the matter."
Beaton took and read tie letter; it con-
tr.ined a distinct offer of four thousand
pounds on condition that u marriage be-
teen him and Dargan's ward should b_-
completed, ond settlements fully satisfactory to himself should be drawn up.
"Ah1, this is extremely distinct. You
witfh some remuneration for your valuable time and fatherly care? I really
don't see what: claim you bave on me,
my dear sir. If my future wife wishes
to bestow any trifling gift in the shape
of friendship's offering as a token of
Itrntittide for your disinterested care, I
bave no objection."
Mr. Dargan grinned more amiably than
"And suppose I withdraw my sanction,
my assistance, where are you?"
"And suppose I persuade tbe young
lady to dispense with your consent?" ask'
ed Beaton, with an Ineffable air. "What
shall you do?"
"Let heT money accumulate until I
crant It, and tie it up so tight that you
'an't touch a rap, save with her consent,
during her life or after her death."
"But you would not give her to th.li
this  bagman?"   asked   Beaton,  striking
the letter   with his    finger,    und    then
throwing it on the table.
"Why not?    He is u good sort of a
fellow, with reddish    hnir,    not unlike
yourself." ^^^^~
Benton looked at him, ond then burst
into a good-humored fit of laughing.
"I fancy Miss Vivian would see a difference," he said.
"Maybe>o, maybe so, but that ain't the
question, fevrc .you inclined to follow my
correspondent's example? I am foolish
enough when I'like a man, as I like yon,
especially when I am inclined to beliere
you would make my dear little ward
happy; to forget my own interest, only
I mustn't, I mustn't allow myself to be
wenk, for my poor sister's sake as well
as my own. Who'll look after me when
I nm paftv'work?''
"I cannot tell, I «m sure. But how
do you think it would sound if I were
to make your proposition public?"
'I  don't/know, and I don't care much;
besides, I am hot going to commit mysdf
• to anything in writing, and I'll ju« say
it's an invention—my word is as good as
yours."   ' .   , I
Benton-laughed., "Really your candor
is quite jjjjfreshing.'"Where do you think
I shall fnl four thousand pounds?"
"Ob, Siu'll find that pinch fast
enough. SJvow to show L kni" dispo e.l to
favor yosV instead of pitting my Birmingham fricyd against you, and raising my
terms, I'll only ,nsk i)m same, provided
you leave the management of the pro-
licrty in. my hands when it comes imto
yours. You wouldn't care to be bo'.heie-l
toiling and moiling after rents, and all
that." "..,.•
"You arc an admirable diplomate after
the knock-me-down Bismarckian scho-il,
Mr. DapgatljU-soid Benton, leaning back
iu his eh:iir and eying the little guardian
through half-closed lids, "I cannot admire yoyr cj-nicnl frankness sufficiently."

"It is an infernal nuisance being kept
here week after week." said Jack Malt
land to himself as he walked slowly up
Regent Street one bright afternoon, whe i
all the world seemed crowding to sh- p
and drive and disport themselves in the
great thoroughfare. Tlie shop windows
were resplendent with every luxury that
wealth could boy or human ingenuity
invent, and the pavement thronged with
busy, weil-dressed.and ill-dressed pedestrians. "There's no sight of its kind like

Mrs. Miles is very unwell; she h.is
been suffering dreadfully for some days
from neuralgia. So I walked down to
Oxford Street to buy a wonderful cure
we saw advertised in the newspaper;
then'I could not help looking into the
shops, they are so beautiful, and I have
come far out of my way, I am a f rail,
without knowing it."
"I shall certainly see you home or call

take very little money, and no one ever

"Very well, let us make for Camden
Town at once. I think you said you
lived in Camden Town. Cam you walk
ail that way?"
"Oh, it is not far; I used to walk miles
hi the country."
Little more was said till Maitland had
piloted her octoss Oxford Street, -unj
they had reached the comparative quiet
of Ln'nghnm Flnce. Maitland not'eed
the smooth, elastic step of his cc-nin.-inion,
tte else and g-race of her mnvcine-i-.iU;
they indicated, he thought! symmetry of
form; while her silence, which was not
from lack of intelligence, but from the
absence of any effort to speak unless she
had something to say, had a soothing'effect.
"I suppose you ride when yon are at
home?'' began Maitland, who was cn,I-
ous to learn something Of her past.
"Not now. When I had my father
with me we had a dear old white pcoy,
nnd I used often to ride on him, sometimes without a saddle; his back was
quite broad and comfortable. But one
day, afterward, you know" (he understood that she meant after her father's
death. "Mr. Dargan enme down nnd
saw poor old Bob feeding in the little
field near the cottage. Then he said he
was no use, and sold ham, and lit the
field to strangers, So we have only the

"I dare say you were sorry for th.

hall never like him: I have told him
so; Dut 1 am almost Inclined to forgive
him for sending niy good, kind Miley to
live with me. I do not know what would
become of me without Miley."
"I suppose that is a pet name for Mrs.
Miles!" Miss Vivian gave'a little nod of
assent. ''It is rather alarming to hear a
young lady confess that she hates any
"Is it? Well, I did hate Mr. Dargan,
and I hated the doctor at Littlemeie: I
cannot or could not help it. I believe I
had a bad temper."
"Has time tamed it or have you nobly
struggled to overcome your own evil n-v
ture?" asked Maitland, looking down
with a smile at the sweet, thoughtful
lace beside him.
Miss Vivian laughed a low,' pleasant,
happy laugh. "1 am afraid not; I grew
stronger and did not need the doctor, and
as I felt better and brighter and able
to enjoy I forgot Mr. Dargan. Now he
is going to let me lenrn drawing, end I
feel almost friendly toward hiin."
There was a pause. Maitland thought
with growing interest and sincere compassion that this was not a nature lo be
satisfied w-iiHi the shams of society and
the paste diamonds of a showy setting
to life. Still Beaton could be very fascinating, and she might believe him the
best of men, nor have her faith disturbed all the days of her life.
"If Mrs. Miles is well enough to sec
me, perhaps you will let me look nt some
•pf your drawings wheu we reach your
"Yes, I will gladly. I can draw very
little now, but I am to go to a studio
in. Kensington, at least I hope so. They
have promised to get Mr. Dnrgan's consent."
''Whohave promised?"
"Mr. Beaton and his sdster. Do yoa
know that he brought his sister to fee
me? Was it not good of him? And
she," a look of*infiunte pleasure and admiration beaming over her face—'oh, His
is lovely! she is like u beautiful gracious
queen, and so kind to nie, 11 mere Ignorant country girl. She has asked rue to
stay with her while I am .studying, and
says she will do ull that is necessary for
me.   Is it not wonderful'/''
"Ah!" ejaculated Maitland, "yon nieiii
Mrs. Winington. She is certainly ehirni-
Uig. When do yon go to stay with her?"
"I am not quite sure. I should have
gone on Monday, but Mrs. Miles was
ill, and'I could notjeave her; indeed that
is the only drawback. I do not like her
being alone by herself in the cottage—
she will fret; but she snys she does not
mind. I think Mr. Dargan has told her
she must not."
So Mrs. Winington was not letting the
grass grow under her feet in the psosocu-
licn of her brother's plan. How would
it all end for the guileless child, whj
was probably looked upon by both as a
mere incumbrance to her own wealth?
What would he the result of Mn. Wln-
ingtou's training? what of association
with Leslie Beaton? 'low much of her
fearless candor, her outspoken truthfulness, would be left after three or four
ycara of life under their guidance? Maitland was conscious of almost fatherly
compassion and tenderness toward his
young companion, nnd yet he could dj
nothing to help or save her! his in.ter-
ference:would be worse than useless If
he could induce Jean, Mrs. WiningtoM
to espouse her cause! But could he?
He thoroughly distrusted that chnrnr'ng
personage, although she still had fascination for him. At any rate, hi-■■would
call on her and endeavor to find her real
disposition toward the lonely little he'iess.
All this passed through his brai.-i
rapidly, and he said aloud, "M-r. Darg.-in
appears a ray potent person."
"He is." said. Miss Vivian, with a little sigh; "I cannot get. any moiu-y excepl
by bis consent. I do not know what he
will think of all Mi's. Winington talks of
buying for me."
"I have no doubt Mrs. Winington will
manage him if any one can."
Moie desultory but friendly sympathetic talk brought them to the door of
Miss Vivian's temporary abode.
"Will yo'.i come in?" she said; and

At this point in Irs meditations Miss
Vivian reentered. She had'removed her

well poised, aid hrr hair, though pale in

Edith Vivian had led a singularly- secluded, monotonous life. She hnd been
the sole conliMinion of her widowed
father, a silent, unconsciously selfi-h
man, who had been reduced from easy
eireumtsauces to eoftpartitive poverty by
Ihe failure of a bank, and who.found'
absorbing occupation in botany and natural history. When he died, Ittf left his

A   Chronic   Case  of   Unusual   Severity   and    Long
Standing   Cured   by
Plies, or homrrhoids, are small
tumors, which form in and about the
orifice of tho rectum. They are
caused by an enlarged and Inflamed
condition of tho veins, which nro
vory numerous in this portion of tlie
body. Piles frequently attack women during tho expectant period or
alter chlldbiHh.
Any form of piles causes dreadful
suffering on account of the itching
and burning which accompany them.
One can scarcely walk at times, and
during the night, when the body
gets  warm,  suffering is intense.
Mr. Alex. McLaughlin, for 30 years
a resident of Bownianville, Ont.,
writes :
"For twenty long years I suffered
from itching piles, and only persons who havo been troubled with
that annoying disease can imagine
what I endured during that time.
About 7 years ago I asked a druggist if ho hud anything to cure inc.

box I was' on a fair way to recov-^
cry. I continued the treatment until thoroughly cured, and I havo hotf
suffered any since. I am firmly con-*
vinccd that the ointment made ■ a|
perfect cure.
"I consider Dr. Chase's Ointment
an invaluable treatment for piles. In'
my case 1 think the cure was remarkable when you consider that I

When   the   Judge
AtcuoKe From Sleep
There was no mistake about it, the
Judge was asleep. The embarrassed
young lawyer, who hnd reached the
telling point of his argument, spoke In.
a higher key, and then raised his voice
until (he walls of the room reverberated.   But the judge slept on.
The court officers were blind to tho
young lawyer's hints. At last, in desperation, ho turned to his opponent.
"Now, Mr. Grubber, you see tlie delicate situation I am In, and there's only
one way out. Unfortunately I haven't
any books with mc, but if you don't
mind I nm going to knock over that
pile of yours."
With a well directed gesture the
young lawyer struck tbo books, nnd
they, ns well ns the chair ou which
they had been standing, went down
with a terrific crash just as his astonished opponent leaped to his feet and
"But I do most emphatically object!"
And the judge, without raising his
head from the position it hnd been occupying for the last fifteen minutes, replied with nil his wonted dignity:

Though there is every appearance In

elaborate and carefully organized system of espionage prevails to circumvent the designs of (he peripatetic

The invisible detective, whose office
is some unsuspected gallery In the

peepholes in the molding lie can survey the whole establishment, is the
most successful foil lo the shoplifter.

At all periods a careful watch Is kept
on those dress establishments that are
pervaded by women, hut more especially nt sale time, for It is then that
covetousness overwhelms morality most
easily, and the crowded state of the
shops .favors the picker up of unconsidered trifles. A manager of one of
the largest establishments In lire metropolis says It is in those departments
that are not spacious that pilfering
principally goes on nnd that in them

Every shopwalker and couutcr attendant Is In effect n detective, but
there are Borne professionals who assume the guise to hide their real posl-

when he is suspicious of a customer to
call the attention of the detective to
her, not blatantly, but by prearranged
sign. The detective then keeps the suspect under her Immediate eye. In the

When an attendant misses or thinks
he misses'something or notices disturbing signs of thievery he speaks to the
detective, who, ns an elegnntly gnrbed
customer, seats herself In a position
commanding a good view of the suspect and makes her purchases like any
other woman, nil the while gathering
dntn upon which to proceed. The disguise assumed by the shop detective
differs day by day.

\X/lTH threo candidates iu the field
for the honor ot being Vaucou-
Tor's Chief Magistrate during the present year, the matter of choice might in
roany [eyes appear a difficulty which
eoold not easily bo surmounted. Bnt
«rerjr' elector most, should make a
"choice. And with n campaign being
carried on with every spirit of
aggressiveness on all hands, there is
danger of some electors being influenced
unduly by advocates of one or other of
tbo candidates who in onr view have
not tbe best qualifications for or claim
upon tho office.
In aeity of the proportions of Vancouver, and one which holds snehn prominent place in the Dominion, far beyond
what her population aloue would entitle
her, it is necessary to keep in mind not
only what wonld impress the citizens of
Vancouver, bnt what will carry weight
with the rest of the public in the rest of
the Dominion. Without disparaging the
•titinmonU of either of the other candidate, for the position, it may be said at
once that Alderman W. J. McOnigan,
If. D., an honor graduate of one of the
leading universities of Canada—McG ill-
and a gentleman, who in his profes
stonal connection and in other ways has
always been identified with the upbuilding of the Canadian Spirit, wonld do
credit to the rising Metropolis of the
West. In short it would impress the
test of the Dominion to tell them that
our Mayor was a Graduate of a leading
educational institution of Canada.
Worn a local standpoint it is not too
much to say that Dr. McGuigan has at
heart the bcBt interests of the city, and
no class tn particular to the exclusion
of others.   At nil times for a number of
years he has been identified with every
public movement,   and with several
public institutions.   Ho has even been
somewhat "jollied" for being connected
with so many organizations for   the
public  service or  improvement.    Far
from being a detriment, this attribute
will bo taken by  every right-thinking
jdwlor as a strong recommendation, ns
.it Ji- sin tho broad-minded  lore of the
J'1 oj.Ie and desire to   bo of  service  to
lb' 111, which has always been strongly
characteristic  of  Alderman   Dr.   Mc-
Omgun.   He hus never been self-seeking, hut seeking to be of service to the
citiscus ns a whole-
As 11 member of the School Board, on
which   he    has    long   served,     Dr.
McGuigan has at nil  times been ready
to astist every move tor the upbuilding
ot the extremely creditable school system     which   is justly    a pride of
Vancouver.   As secretary of the MoGill
College Graduates Association of B. C,
Dr. McGuigan has been largely instru-
'mental in making operative   and 01
practical use, the affiintion which was a
't*w vi-ars Ago secured with that nuivei-'
slty.   Aided largely by hi* efforts, was

I. a great deal harder than lumping
down. And yet people who have
been for years rannlng down in health
expect to jump hack at once. It takes
years'generally to make a man a con-
. firmed dyspeptic, and he
cannot expect to be cured
in a few days.
There  is  no  quicker
meaus of cure for dyspep-
or other forms of stomach
trouble than by the use of Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical  Discovery,   It cures
diseases   of   the
stomach   and   other
organs of digestion
and nutrition ana builds
up the body with sound
flesh and solid muscle.
* t was token sick two yean
ago," writes He», W. H. Patter-
•on.of WhUeCloud, Aln..«wlth
what the doctors thought waa
gastric trouble, lndigettlon or
nervous dyspepsia, also con-
stiiMilion ana inactive liver,
1 wa. In a dreadful condition.
Tried Several different doctor,
with but little result.    I had
gotten so feeble that I was almost nasftrarellng about; had
got down to ru pounds.    X
went and bought six bottles of
'Golden  Medical  Biscovery,
and got the ' Pellets' and
began     following    dlrec-
lion..   When I had f ken
about   five   bottles 1   felt
very much better and was
greatly Improved, and
weighed one hundred aad
thliiv-clght pounds.   I will
say that  Dr.   Pierce's
medicines are . Godsend to poor suffering
hmnanitv. and I advise
any  ana   all   chronic
sufferers lo give them
a fah trial and they
will be satisfied."
Accept no substitute for "Golden Medical Discovery,
There is nothing "just as good" for
dMesaes of tbe stomach.

Delaines ar.d bareges with white or
pale ecru or gray grounds, with a small
flowered Pompadour figure, make the
prettiest house and Informal dinner
gowns imaginable, particularly when
trimmed with black velvet ribbons and
large fichu collars of mousseline de sole
or silk mull. The collars are made
with double or triple capes falling In
points over the sleeves and are round
In the back and front. They are finish
ed with hems an Inch and a half In
depth, and above the hems are rows of
velvet ribbon matching the arrangement of the ribbon bands on the skirt,
These velvet-trimmed mull fichus may,
ot course, be made detachable so that
they may be worn with various gowns.
They are even pretty when word over
sheer white muslin blouses which are
made with elbow-sleeves, finished with
a deep frill. These frills to the elbow
sleeves are made as the fichu collars
are, and they, too, may be made detachable. High velvet -girdles trimmed with rhlnestone buttons or buckles
are also worn with these gowns, or if
more becoming to the figure the girdle
fastern In the back with stiff, upstand
Ing bows and long, looped ends.
For house or evening gowns the sheer
qualities of the all-over embroidered
bastlse are now used. This pretty material comes In a pale ecru tint, which
Is especially pretty for evening wear,
It Is a material which Is adapted not
only for trimmings of gowns of other
materials, such as delaines and voiles,
and even in taffeta, but It Is equally
pretty for a separate blouse to wear
with a silk shirt, or for a skirt to wear
with one of the new Pompadour figured
silk waists made with" a large collar
and ruffled sleeves ot the batiste,
The pendulum has swung back—no
more "show girls" in coBtly gowns with
long trains; just plain "chorus." No
more 12,000 costumes to be worn with
th. grace of a duchess, no more au omo.
biles and fat tips on the stock market
—only the old pink tights, hall bedrooms
and beer! It is truly dreadful. Such
walls of woe haven't been heard along
the rlalto in many moons.
"It Is all the managers' fault," the
gentle victims declare. But the managers say the fickle public has had en
ough of the show girl, her expensive
gowns, her haughty airs, her automobiles, and her press notices. Yet every
one recalls the advent—the show girl's
—with a thrill of pleased remembrance.
It was she who distinguished "Flora
dora." Wise flr3t nlghters shook their
heads and said, "Too bad," for there
wasn't a familiar natural curve back
of the footlights—only the graceful
lines of concealing draperies.
But before the week was out there
was another story. "What, no chorus?
Just ladles: and gentlemen all Irreproachably attired?" First tho novelty,
and then the charm of tall, stately,
beautiful creatures who would have
graced the Patriarchs' ball with flowing
trains and feet with Just a hint of
wickedness In them half hidden In
swlils of lingerie, packed the theatre
to the doors.
The "show girl" was the new open
sesame to managerial prosperity. The
"chorus" was dooomed. The dressmak
era flourished amazingly. The price of
automobiles went up and hall bedrooms
were a drug on the market. Even the
prima donna was almost eclipsed. Former "members of the chorus" who
could wear costly, fashionable raiment
gracefully now had names—names to
be printed on the programme, names
to be quarrelled over by rival managers, names to be changed by rich

The Convenient Light is the
Electric Light
You have simply to touch the button and yonr office and room is brilliantly'
lighted,   falling over ohoirs; no matches; no unoleanliness; no danger.' ;
Electrio lights can be made portable, so that you can hang them over your
dresser or shaving mirror, at the head of your bed, etc., and any desired
candle-power may be obtained.
It is a Beautifying; Light
Under its clear rays, faces and objects do not have that pallid, dull appearance that is caused by other lights; on the contrary, it show, off, every. 1 1
thing to tbe best a dvantage.   As music adds to the beauty Of a voice, so (I

IT HAS NO FLAME—it emits no unhealthy fumes—it consumes on
oxygen and does not vitiate tbe air—therefore it does not cause 01 aggravate asthma or other pulmonary diseases.   It does not leak, ignite or
explode,   it will not kill plants or ruin wallpaper or f nrnishings.   It is ( '
