Buffalo, N.Y., Aug. 27.���Scientists and educators of world-wide
fame at the fourth International congress on school hygiene, ln
special aesslon today, agreed with practical unanimity that tbe time
had come when the attitude of the world's educational lu-st tutioni
toward sex hygiene should be revolutionized. They saw in the s kace
of the past on the subject a growing and real menace to the future
of the race, that must be combstted by a system of education without exsggeratlon or morbid suggestion.
Publlc opinion, they maintained, already has reached the point
where this revolution Is demanded Dr. Charles W. Eliot, president
of the congress; Kev. Richard J. Tlerney, S.J., ot Woodstock college, Maryland, and other prominent delegates discussed the subject at a symposium attended by the entire congress this sfternoon.
"A remsrksble change in public opinion haa taken place in regard to sex hygiene," Dr, Bitot said, using the term In tts broadest
sense. "The policy of silence was almost universal Medical discoveries hsve contributed to tbe shift In public opinion, which also

An editorial sausage machine on one of the eastern
papers, not more than a Sabbath day's journey from the
Canadian clearing house for religion, oozes over three-
quarters of a column in a terrifying manner concerning
the way in which certain American settlers in the Peace
river district are waving the Stars and Stripes and declaring their nationality to all and sundry in that new field
of agricultural endeavor.
The squib purveyor in question wants to know if the
Americans up there intend to annex that portion of Canada to the United States, calls their gall sublime, intimates
tbat Japan can lick Uncle Sam, suggests that the U. S.
never had a war of anv consequence except a family row
back in '61, puts in a few "Godforbids," 'Great Wests,"
"as of yores" and winds up panting.
Altogether it's really some effort, yes sir, some effort,
but the weather's too hot for that kind of guff and, moreover, it doesn't draw any water with anybody except a few
faded relics of humanity who haven't anything left to do
but sit around and imagine the worst possible things' that
could happen and never will.
Just that sort of stuff which this editorial writer
peddles is what isn't needed nowadays. There is no chance
of annexation of Canada to the U. S. and the Americans
know it. They know it so well and they prize Canada so
highly as she is that they're investing millions here annually, which is sufficient guarantee in itself that there'll
never be any serious trouble between the two countries,
because modern diplomacy is based on dollars.
Nowadays you can learn anything by correspondence
except how to make a living.

"Let Glasgow Flourish."
The above terse sentence Is tho
j motto of the great city over which
Mr. Stevenson is for throe years the
head. He was selected in November,
1911, and in explaining Ihe system ol
i civic government, he says:
"The lord provost is elected fnr
jthr. o years just as the members of
the council are. Hut one-third of th-.'in
retire annually, so that there are always two-thirds left to insure a continuity of policy. We have found this
system to work very well Indeed."
"Let Glasgow flourish' is a motta
which Mr. Stevenson hus dine his
manful best to make good. It is his
great and vital Interest in the city
which has prompted his visit to
Canada, The ostensible motive might
��� a-ily be termed i|iiixot-e. It Is this:
During the pasi few months Btories
In various Scottish and Kngiish newspapers have gained the car of the
people to the effect thai the Immigration Into Canada is becoming greaUy
overcrowded and that there is a llkell-
hood of great distress prevailing
among those who leave for the west
this year. So wide a credence have
those reports gained among the canny
I citizens of Glasgow that the lord pro-
veil has received hundreds of letters
asking him for advice on the subject
and In many oasi s imploring him lo
disB"adf olTi.o.i.ilv emigration from
: the Clyde.
On the ether hand many Canadians
whom he knew and respected wrote
I him to the effect that people who
came to Canada in the same spirit as
the Americans came���with the intention of turning their hands to anything thut came up. even it il were

"What conclusion have yen arrived

Victoria, Aug. ^7.    Whether or not
(drivers of vehicles plying for hire are
generally aware of the prohibition
against carrying anyone on the box of
hack or wagon other Ihan the hirer,
the fact was forcibly impressed upon
William Klrby this morning by the
imposition of a heavy  line.
Inspector James Palmer Btated to
the court that on Thursday he saw
Kirbny passing along Belleville on tlie
i box of his express wagi��, on which
there was also riding another registered driver named Hanson, which was
contrary to the provisions of lhe hired
i vehicles by-law. Ile had previously
cautioned him on this point several
times, and lie was :i driver who gave
Uie departmenl a good deal of trouble.
Klrby insisted thai be bad a rlghl
to carry a man to belp with iruuks
and  heavy  packages, and  be told   Un'
'court that Hanson was given bill
what  the wagon made     He admitted
ithal  in*  had  been  cautioned  by    In

bas occurred, not a speck being left,
while Ibe other two figures are as
plain as ever and then is not a scratch
on them. The prosecutor was also very
curious ahout a consignment of goods
which Kirhy took from rli����� C. I' 11
wharf on Friday and which was not
delivered to the consignee until twin,
ty-five hours  later
"'roil and one or two oth"- drivers
seem to take a delight in tailing to
lohrerve the by-law." Bald Magistrate
.lay. "There are other men who have
been driving hacks or express wa irons
in this city for years and who bave
never given the least trouble. You
have been frequently warned about
your conduct and you will bnve to understand that this and every ether hy-
law is made to be observed and that it

A Comparison.
Comparing lhe average yearly
amount .that can be earned at Hns
maximum by motormen and oonduo-
U.rs working reasonable bonis each
week, with what ean be earned by,
say-est-penteis employed In the building trade in Vancouver, ihe evidence
adduced before the board convinces
the undersigned that the first named
ainuiini would be very considi rably
greafor than the second, lt is true
that carpenters get a higher rate of
pay whilst acl ually at work, but theli
average yearly earnings are kept
down partly through lack of continuous employment and mainly because
climatic conditions stop almosl entirely building operations during several months ill the year. The majority have not overlooked the argument of the men lhat when carpenters arc not Wl rking lhey are not co-
opera'tfng with their employers in the'
production of wealth and that their
share of sueh wealth is fixed bv th"
rate per lutur paid them which Is
higher 'than 35 eenls, but in the opinion of the undersigned  under present
economical conditions in the fixing of
the hourly wage for carpenters the
fact that hmg periods of enforced idle
p"ss is an unavoidable incident or
tlle trade, is allowed Inr. 1.1k' wise,
it appears certain that a large numlier of employees ill the civil service
ot liritish Columbia receive per annum a I * ss wage ihan ean be so
earned by motormen and conductors;
and lhat this Is also true or a com-
ivirison between their earnings and
those cf a large number or store mul
office mal" employees at the coast.
It is true that the city of Vancouvi i* pays i Miliary laborers 87H cents
per hour for municipal work, but the
great hedy or such laborers are not
g.ven continuous work the year r uud
and furiher ii will hardly be denied
that factors other than economic and
business laws influenced the fixing of
such rate. Nor, the undersigned
think, will It he controverted thai a
city with ils power of raising funds
by taxation al will within certain
limits is in a far different position '
rrom a company which has no such
unfailing reservoir to draw upon,
when, w,tii to boiince accounts.
Thc company further point out that
as shown by their wage schedule
sheets, men in receipt of this 35
cents per hour rate s nil able to lak"
time orf to a very considerable ex
ten'. The arrangement of wcrk'ng
the British Columbia Elec'ric ra Iway
is such as to make it lo a large extent optional with a man whether he

force of 20 per cenl. of the total payroll is maintained by the company;

has no rely to arrange with some >\
tra man to take his run.

Everett, Seattle, Portland and Spokane, The hoard has no reliable data
, as to ihe presenl eost of living in
these cities. In Canada, the nearest
syst,m that can be compared with
the liritish Columbia Electric Rallwav
Company, Limited, Is thai of Winni-
pi ���,. The maximum thi re is 34 ci n -
per hour, which is the highest in
Canada except thai of the British C ���
lumbia Electric, so far as the tvi-
dence showed. It is argued thai lho
!cest of living in Winnipeg lai n i
Increased pn portl nately, and ii is
i not as high as it is in the cities of
Vancouver, Victoria and New We;t
minster. This contention is ma niy
based cn the calculations of Mr. Cot-i-
worth, which are* founded on the re
lal prices transmitted to lh" depart-
no ni of labor monthly, by representatives in lhe various cit.es in Canada.
To a certain extent, however, these
figures involve the personal equation;
inasmuch as the prices given are not
these of Identical standard articles,
;but are those of classes of articles,
*aiid obviously the judgment of different individuals will vary an ti
whether articles of a certain pric *
(ihould be included In a reri iin class,
tl not. An analysis or the Winnipeg

Kor these reasons, the undersigned
feel compelled io refuse to Incresse
the  maximum
With the alteration made by them
in the minimum rate, they believe that the average wage paid to
motormen nnd conductors on city and
suburban lines will be higher than
the average rale on most, if nol all
other electric tramway systems, w,th
the six exceptions already enumerated. It will certainly be very considerably higher than the average
schedule of.Everett, Seattle. I'ortlunil
ami WlifhlpegS and. in consequently,
lln undersigned find themselves unable to alter the gradation, except as
above staled.
Interurban Men.
Wiih regard to Interurban conductors und motormen, it Is to be noted
that three or four such systems in
Uu- United States do pay a flat rat",
which, .ihen compared with the average ral, paid by the British Columbia
(Electric Railway Company Limited. It
higher These systems, however.
operate under conditions with which
tin- undersigned are not entirely conversant. A comparison of the aver-
age wage under the iintish Columbia
Electric Railway company Limited
schedule With the average paid on the
inlerurhan'systems generally In Canada and the United States shows thai
the runner    Is    considerably    higher, j
Under   the  old  wage schedule,  inter- ,
urban  service    was    valued    at    l'i j
cents tin hour higher  than city    and
suburban   service.   The   undersigned
can si e no just reason for interfering
wiih this percentage    Tliey hnve cou  !
sequently   raised     up     the    minimum
wage, which was again    too    low    in
their opinion, to that  basis, and propose to allow    the    balance   of   the
schedule to stand as it  was.
As lo the car barn and shop depart- \
ment, a comparison between what Is |
paid by the ISrilish Columbia Electric |
ttailway Company   Limited   and   the
Canadian  Pacific    Railway    company
which    operates    somewhat     similar I
shops and barns In Vancouver, shows
thai  the former    rate    is    materially
higher   than   the  latter;   and   in   tli is
connection   It is   to be remembered
that  the Canadian    Pacific    Railway
oompany is on a 7 per cent, common
stock dividend basis, excluding dlvld
ends obtained from  its land department
It was further shown by tha evidence iii lhe opinion ot the majority. I

vato Individuals and companies,
in some Instances the underslgm l
have   raised   tlle   present   schedule   of
ihe liritish Columbia Electric R.i.I
way Company Limited, because it
seemed to them thai such schedule
WBB not a living wage. These remarks also apply io the malntenanc
of way  men.
On the Chilliwack line, tlie ware.
had been fixed by a board of arbltri
tion whieh sat iu December, 1911, and
the undersigned can see no valid rea
son for Interfering with Hie award
ihen made, if the principles herein
outlined are to ha acted upon. It v.as
contended cn 1. half of the men that
this v.as a railway Hue, and that the
schedule of wages should be the Bam ��� ,
as tbat which obtains on steam rail-
ways; but the majority cf the hard
are convinced that under presenl c i
ditlons. at any rale, this Lne is much
more akin to Interurban ira flic than ,
to steam railway traffic. The difference in degree was recognized ill the
arbitration aforesaid by ti' ��� granting
rf a somewhat higher wags Bcale; and
this, as Btated, il.c maji nty proposed
to continue Intact.
It may be noted, in cdnclusli n, th*,*
the evidence shows thai the British
Columbia Electric Ra'lway Company
Limited are Inundated wi h applica
tions to enter their service, even un
d'r the old wage schedule; and there
tore the operation of the law of supply and demand appears to be ent r. It
in tlieir favor. It is further to b-
noted that men can be, and actually
are. trained to perform the Bervlce
required In the operation of a Btreet

thero are some very rich pockets, the
great bulk or the ore is low grade,
and should thcrerore only be mined In
very large Quantities, and with trom
500 to 1,000 stamps. In almost every
case where nn attempt has been made
to mine Ihls quarts the outfits have
been romparalilvely small, and the
relative expenditrue has been too
great for the possible returns.
