Hon. George B, Poster on behalf of'

to Dd Own Work���Wait for Contractors.
Victoria, l*'e*b. 5.���What action the
city council win take relative t.i paving ie* '��� question now exercising tii..
. ngineerlng branch of the city service.
Pending the receipt of a reply from
ihe Canadian Mineral Rubber company, which has been given until the
end ol the present month to state
what it proposes to do. nothing definite can be dime towards advancing
the proposition for a civic-owned plant.
The engineer Is now securing Information 'is to the cost or a plant and
this Will be ready by the time the re
].., . f the company is at hand.
The council as yet 1ms reached no
definite decision as to the extent to

Institute  a  paving  plain of  Its own.   what is termed No
portant one.   if the paving company
la willing to go ahead and complete
lis contracts it is hardly probable that'
any  additional   paving  work   will  bo
done this year by the city, as the work ;
already  let by contract is about as
much as can be financed this year, i
As for the question  of repairs,  the
work  already  done  as  well  as  that!
let but not* completed is subject to the
company's   guarantee   for  five   years,
and   must  be  kept   in   shape  by   the
company. |

of the cnntraotors and proceeded with
Its own work. At first difficulty was
experienced in securing a full supnly
of material because of the so-culled
asphalt trust, and the material secur-
.*il had to be obtained where pi sslble,
Put the City held to the idea of a municipal owned plant and today can lay
nil n* 3000 square yards of pavement
per day. In 1910 the city secured its
'������:��� portable plant, with which is laid
pavement   This
firm financed hy the city. The pavement Is inspected su it would be were
a contracting concern laying it. While
the initial cost is somewhat higher
the results have proved excellent, especially when the question of repairs
is concerned, this work being done
more rapidly and the disputes relative
to guarantee being eliminated.
Average Cost.
The average cost to the city per
yard, on business streets has been
about ?il.tir> but on the business streets!
a pavement consists first or three j
Ine-hes of gravel ballast, then six
inche.'s of concrete base and inch and
a half cf binder course and three
inches of asphalt wearing surface.
Broken stone drains every 50 feet are
also Included in the cost. The city j
advertises every Job us open to com-
petition, tho engineer putting in a bid
and so fur the city has always under- j
bid the contractors. The strictness of i
the specifications are such that the'
contractors claim they cannot com-'
pete   with  tho city.

Jie Case oi
AB. SMITH has a dry ��oods store in a certain Canadian City. He docs a good business, but wants
* to do more. He believes that Advertising in his local newspaper is the
way to get more business. So he advertises-every now and then.
This is where our friend Smith is wrong���in advertising every now and
then. He should advertise regularly���as frequently as his local newspaper
is published.
Smith says he wants to advertise regularly, but he can't always find the time
to prepare advertisements, which is true, for he is his own buyer, sales-
manager, director of slore service, credit man and half-a-dozen other things.
What Smith should do is this: If he is located in one of the smaller cities, in
which there arc no advertising agencies giving a local copy service, and he
has no one among his own staff qualified by instinct or experience to
write the daily announcements, he should go to the publisher of the newspaper in which he means to advertise, requesting his help. In nine cases
out of ten, the publisher, through his advertising manager, will be only too
glad to give Smith the assistance desired.
If Smith is located in one of the larger cities he should secure the services
of a recognized advertising agency which will take over the work of preparing his advertisements.
In this way Smith can be sure of having his advertisements prepared regularly and intelligently, with no more trouble to him than the supplying of
the information required by the writer of the advertisements.
So Smith can do more business, and more business means a larger income
for himself, to soy nothing of other gains ihat go hand in hand with the
doing of bigger business.

Dopestera Got Busy Yesterday Afternoon���New Amateur League
Although the opening of the baseball
season is several weeks away, the
bug got working overtime yesterday
with the result that a prediction to
the effect that baseball wlll be much
stronger tiian ever In the Hoyal City
this earning summer, Ib not far off
the  mark.
The American game made its way
to the front rank last summer due no
doUbt tn a deflection In the ranks of
lacrosse magnates and this headway

Two new teams are likely in the
, Ity league, these being Fraser Mills
,iikI the Knights of Columbus. The
Circle F crowd are intent and eager
to pluce a team In the league providing; their application for a franchise
is granted anil there should be little
difficulty In this line. The French
lUnudiiin colony at the big ihIIIb stick
together with the clannish spirit and
v. Ith ie baseball team invading New
Westminster every week the attendance  will   be   materially   Increased.

work for Manager Graham of the
Moowe who has won the championship
two successive years solely through
the assistance of players from the
New League.
Together with the talk of reorganizing the city league cotneB the story
that a slmon pure amateur league will
be formed. This organization will
likely come under the wing of the local
amateur union, very few of the play*

to take out an amateur card as thla

playing with teams other than In Van

does not necessarily imply that the old
league will be of the Beml-pro order,
with the kale dished out here and

does away with the Idle rumors that
nearly every player on the teams Is

Manager Crawford's "Cyclones," representing Cunningham's hardware*

last night, the final score being 5-2.
The victors came back with great
speed, following their defeat at the
hands of T. J. Trapp and company,

Hangs in the Balance
some ten years ago. Baron Honde, a
lineal descendant of tho old Scandinavian kings, and a man of great
wealth and prestige abroad, was at
the head of a conspiracy that threatened to remove King Oscar from the
I throne. Though a member of the an-
\ icent aristocracy, Uaron Bonde was
la radical In politics, and thus might
I have counted upon tho support of
two parties In the house. However,
ihe movement or tronsplracy that aimed at placing him upon the throne of
Sweden was Ill-timed. Tho trouble
with Norway and the subsequent division of the dual monarchy drew attention in other directions, and the
plot failed. Whether Bonde waa the
originator of the conspiracy or whether his name was used without his
authority Is a matter upon which
Swedes differ.

uv Is no more popular lit Sweden than
is Haakon, and especially his English wife, in Norway, and that the
national legislature is not unlikely ut
any time In the near future to pronounce in favor of a republic. The
reasons for this are personal rather
than political. Sweden is a democratic country, its kind has few prerogatives that might be exercised to
the disadvantage of the nation, and
practically any laws that the people
desire they can make. The fact that
more than one-quarter of the members in the lower house are Socialists is un Indication that the people

Victoria, Feb, G��� Suppcrtlng the
bill to amend the dentistry aot i/it.ro
duced several days ago in the legislature by F. J. MacKenzie, of Daltu.
'a delegation of the dental profession
,from Vancouver and Victoria waited
ion Sir Richard  McBride Tuesday.
Among those who were present at
the conference were the following
members of the dental council of
British Columbia: Dr. Mlnogue, Dr.
Brighouse, Dr. McSween (New Weat-
|minster), and the following practising
,dentists from Vancouver: Dr. Spencer, Dr. Currie, Dr. Black and Dr.
Thompson. The delegates from Vancouver island Included Dr. Griffiths.
Dr. Burgess, Dr. Henderson, Dr.
Procter, Dr. Harper, Dr. Lewis Hall
and Dr. Tanner.
| C. F. Davie, who introduced the
delegates, stated that the objects *cf
the bill "were to prohibit tho employment of unqualified men or Use
operating of men under contract by
| qualified dentists." He said that the
existing act did not preclude men
; trom practising dentistry who had
passed the necessary examinations
and had not appeared before the government hoard.
1 Dr. Minogue explained that a man
employing unregistered men under
I tiie present act was exempt from
prosecution unless he had made a
| written contract with his assistant,
according to the decision recently
handed down by the judges of the
court. He said it was difficult to
prove the existence of such a written
contract; and he urged that the present act should bo enforced in order
to prevent such an anomaly.
It waa urged that the penalty for
practicing without a license should bs
increased until the maximum fine was
| $400, or three months' imprisonment.
Delegates also pointed out the present difficulty of getting evidence.
They were forced to employ people*
to visit the unqualified dentists in
order to secure a case against them.
The delegates urged that all premises should be open to access by government inspectors at all times, and
that if tliiu -was done It would 01081?

of the executive, and that the professional men affected would be given
a full opportunity of airing their
views before the bill passed to It*
third reading.
In a very real sense every business is a
public service enterprise. A man who supplies commodities to a community, whether
that community is a neighborhood, a city, or
the whole country, prospers only in so far
as he subserves the interests of his patrons.
This sounds elementary, but an amazing
number of men are ignoring this doctrine
in actual practice.
In the past few years the public has
been swinging to this view of not only
large enterprises, like railroads and public
utility corporations, but of smaller institutions! The merchant, large or small, who
does not sense the full meaning of this
changed viewpoint is doing himself serious
injustice and is "in" for many a harassing
That the more progressive business
men everywhere are becoming more fully
aware of their public service functions is
shown by such phrases as these which are
occurring in greater and greater numbers
in advertisements: "Our store is your
store." "We pay the. clerks for your service." It is only by fully satisfying you that
they can satisfy us."
Many a business that is selling excellent
goods and observing all the conventional
rules of good merchandising is falling short
of its greatest success just because the directing intelligence fails to comprehend this
profoundly significant fact of business as a
public service. Regarding the public as a
body that exists for his convenience, the
manager keys his whole enterprise accordingly. Some day he wakes up to the sorrowful fact that for some reason or other he is
"out of tune."
A vivid understanding of his true position as a director of a Public Service Enterprise will enable anyone who is now groping
for the mysterious reason which will explain
his lack of complete success to clarify his
problem, will energize the business anew
and will raise unsatisfatcory service���and
perhaps goods��� that lose buyers into satisfactory service that keeps buyers and adds
to them still others.
Advertising that is reinforced by a
dynamic policy of public service is unassailable. It is practically competition proof,
given a measure of experience and judgment in direction.

"The Wreck," a story told In a
thrilling manner by pictures, is the
chief attraction at the* Edison for today, it is a railroad story and in
brief is as follows:
Carlyle,    the    railroad    president,
visits his old friend, Hamiltcn, and U
so    impressed    with    Richard,    the
friend's  son,  that  ho offers  him    an
opening in the railroad business. Carlyle  notes the  marked  difference between  him,  a  fine,  manly  young  fellow, and  Herbert,  his    cssTn    son,    a
lui'er-do-wtll   at   college.    Herbert   is
in delrt and writes home for money.
The railroad president refuses his request.    In desperation the boy writes
to  Genevieve,    his attractive    young I
stepmother.    She confides in Richard.
Herbert calls  home secretly  and  his j
stepmother promises to help him. Car* I
lyle, comes lu  and   sternly  demands I
to known lo whom she was talking.
She cannot tell him,
A(.note arrives for Genevieve.    She |
tells Carlyle It is from a girl.    It  is |
from   Herbert,   who   wishes  to   meet j
Richard   that   evening   to   get   the
money.    Genevieve gees  to acquaint
Richard   of   the   appointment   and   is '
followed  by  her    husband.    He    witnesses  the meeting  and  hears  Gene
Vieve say, "On   the  bridge tonight  at
eight."    Carlyle meets Richard at the
bridge, seizes him by the throat, and
pushes him    into    the    water.    John
Squires, a surly, cowardly bully, who
has  been discharged from    the    railroad, sees the deed. As Carlyle sneaks
back Squires insolently steps out and '
points   meaningly toward    the    lake.
Carlyle   is   forced   to   re-employ   him ���
on   the  railrtad.     Herbert   coming to,
ni' et  Richard, sees his father. When
questioned   lie  tells  the  truth  about
the appointment.    Carlyle can hardly ,
bear the weight of his sorrow.
Carlyle goes west, away from the
scene of his crime. Hi3 son Herbnrt
accompanies blm, Engineer SquireB,
driving ths westbound express, standi
intoxicated, swaying from side to side'
in the eab. Squires attacks the fire
man and tries to throw him from the
window. While this is happening, tho
train tears on toward a runaway en
gine several miles down ths track. In
the head-on collision which follows,
the cars are thrown from the track
and splintered Into pieces; clinched
locomotives earc demolished, belching
fire and steam, passengers are hurled
from seats and crushed in debris.
Carlyle searches for his son. He
(mils him among the dead. liaising
his eyes heavenward, his epression
tells he realizes tbat liis punishment
is the retributive justice', "A life for
a life."
