DUTY OP THE HOUR.
While the tremendous conflict, on which the fate
not only of the British Empire but of the world depends, still hangs in the balance, though a favorable
termination may now be discerned or divined, it would
be small blame to any of us did every other consideration, interest, or duty shrink, in our estimation, into
relative insignificance. If it were conceivable, or possible without cutting away the very ground from beneath the feet of our fighters, to totally suspend every
other activity, interest, or manifestation of social,
civic, and national life, during the course of the conflict, except those which bore directly upon the prosecution of the war, that idea might be carried to its
logical conclusion���which, indeed, would be the position, as illustrated by Belgium and Serbia in this war,
of a nation absolutely in extremis and fighting on its
own soil, with its back to the wall, against a ruthless
foe who had it by the throat.
But, thank God, neither the British Empire���nor
any part thereof, inclusive of this Dominion���which
challenged the wrath of the German aggressor, not on
its own behalf, but on behalf of the smaller outraged
nations of Europe and to make goad its plighted word
to these and to our Allies, has been called upon to sustain any such terrible ordeal. In fact, it has been at
once the glory and the strength of Great Britain,
throughout this colossal struggle, that, while putting
forth an unprecedented and unparalleled military and
naval effort, she has been able to make good the motto
"business as usual" and, while building up a vast new
war industry, maintain and increase her ordinary trade
and sustain her position as the great financial buttress
and bulwark of the Allied cause; and, in so doing, contributed the first and the last essential factor of ultimate success in a great test of endurance, such as that
in which the nations are involved.
The lesson and the moral for ourselves, in this part
of the British Empire���in Canada, in the Canadian
Province of British Columbia���is obvious: That the
duty of the hour, while continuing to spare no effort,
as in the past has been nobly done, to assist in sustaining and maintaining the fighting forces of the Empire
at the front, is no less for those with equal devotion to
do their part who, in the inevitable division of labor ���
and duty, find it to be theirs to "stay by the stuff"
and maintain as "a going concern" the very organized
existence of the country for which our comrades have
answered the higher and more appealing call for service���to the end that, as in the Mother Land, our
fighting forces have at their back the constant support of a strong and solvent and productive commonwealth, guaranteeing ultimate victory, and guaranteeing the maintenance of institutions and moral and material possessions worth fighting for, worth returning
to when the fight has been won, worth preserving
to posterity���to the end that, in the new, reconstructive, almost revolutionary, era that the most far-sighted agree must succeed to this great upheaval among
the nations, our country may take its place worthily
in the van, and not be ridden down and overriden in
the rear of the great procession of progress. ^
Unless government is the farcical, mercenary, at>d
irresponsible thing we have been taught objectively in
this Province to believe it to be���a mere lever, to be
grasped and held on to by any means by unscrupulous
men, to pry loose from the public patrimony personal
and party profit and aggrandisement, to the impoverishment of the people and the country then we have
as electors an immediate patriotic duty to perform
that is only secondary, if not of equal'importance, to
the work of our soldiers in the trenches. Standing on
the threshold of a startingly new order of things,
where reform and progress are essential, unless we
are to invite anarchy and decay, we lind ourselves confronted with a spectre of the past, the shreds and
patches of a dead and done Administration, bound in
the grave-clothes of confirmed reaction and corruption,
and demanding a renewed lease of long abused power.
The duty of the hour for those upon whom the exercise of the franchise, on behalf of themselves and
others, at this time devolves is to sweep this mouldering spectre from our path, throw a little dirt on it, and
clear the way for an absolutely new Administration,
in harmony with the spirit and the needs of the new
era upon which we are entering.
A proposal is under consideration by the Minister
of Militia to mobilize and train in Canada two complete
infantry divisions which would be ready to leave for
the front practically at once. Hitherto the organizing
and training of divisions has been done in England.
To carry out the scheme six provincial or district brigades are contemplated. These would include a Nova
Scotia brigade, already raised as a Highland brigade
under Col. Borden; a brigade from New Brunswick
and Prince Edward Island, a brigade from Quebec, two
brigades fi om Ontario, and a brigade from the Western Provinces,
MINISTRY OP MUDDLING.
All the dangerous tampering of the Bowser Government with the Elections Act, which, in connection
with the muddling of the Attorney-General over the
legal date of expiration of the late Legislature, has involved the validity of the next Legislature also in doubt,
would appear to have been for next to nothing���the
mournful plaint of one of the chief organs, the News-
Advertiser, in a recent issue, signifying neither more
nor less than that Premier Bowser has been unmistakably told -what it was his business to have ascertained
before that the British military authorities, in the
prosecution of this life and death struggle in Europe,
will stand for no election nonsense in the trenches.
"It is a pity," says the News-Advertiser, "thatthe
British Columbia men in France and Flanders are not
in a position to vote. Over ten thousand electors will.
probably.be on the Continent in August and September. * * * But we can easily understand the point
of view of the military authorities, who see difficulties
in the way of taking the vote of men in the trenches
or engaged on the firing line. Those in reserve might
be reached by the election officers, but this is a matter
for the military authorities to settle. They have control of the men, and, if an election at the front seems
too much for them to handle properly, they must be
relieved of the responsibility. , We suppose that there
will be no trouble in England or in the Canadian camps
in allowing the men of this Province to exercise their
right as citizens."
So, in the indirect, instead of straightforward,
words of this inspired Government apologist, the whole
elaborate scheme for' taking the soldiers' vote, involving dislocation, delay, and expense, and, with other
administrative muddling, the validity of the next
Legislature, would appear to have dwindled down to
the possibility, a sort of vaguely expressed hope, that
it may be permissible to take the vote of soldiers from
British Columbia who may, between nomination and
election, be in British or Canadian camps. A later
issue of the Province says these will really be permitted to vote.
The Ministry of Muddling would surely be an appropriate designation for the Attorney-General's Department in this Province, under its present head.
And who can wonder, when that head has shown himself to be constantly more engrossed with the
"smooth" workings of the political party machine,
and the conflicting retainers from private and corporate interests, than with the legitimate public interests
which he is sworn to further and protect.
PROSECUTION - PERSECUTION.
The prosecution persecution would, perhaps, be
the better word���of Mr. Moses B. Cotsworth, of this
city, through the Post Office Department, at Vancouver, on the charge of having made improper use of the
letters 0.H.M.S. on several hundred envelopes mailed
without postage to officials at Ottawa, suffered defeat
in the decision of Judge Mclnnes in the County Court,
Vancouver, Friday, dismissing the case.
The envelopes, it might be mentioned, contained
pamphlets explanatory of Mr. Cotsworth's new reform calendar, on which he has been working for over
twenty years, and which has received the endorsement
of high authorities the world over. The crux of the
case, as the learned judge showed, was not the use of
the letters O.H.M.S., but whether these had been used
for the purpose of having letters passed free of postage that in the case of 286 envelopes were to official
addresses not entitled under the postal regulations
to receive mail (vvu. Criminal intent, however, had to
be shown, and .Judge Mclnnes found that, while there
had been a technical infraction of the postal regulations in so far as the 286 envelopes were concerned,
there was no such intent, therefore he found the accused not guilty and dismissed the case.
That there was no criminal intent, was very plainly
shown by the evidence of Mr. James F. Murray, Assistant Postoflice Inspector, who produced a letter
written to the P. 0. Department by Mr. Cotsworth,
advising the Department that he had sent these letters and asking that the privilege be extended to
members of the outside service. All heads and deputy
and branch heads of departments at Ottawa, as well
as Senators and members*of the House of Commons
while Parliament is in session, it ought to be explained, are entitled by the regulations to receive mail free,
and to all these Mr. Cotsworth sent his pamphlets, and
interpreted the regulations to include other officials in
the departments besides, of which, as noted, he informed the P. 0. Department by letter, and asked for
an extension of the franking privilege to Dominion
Government officials throughout the country admittedly a pretty large order, but in no way rendering him
liable, in decency, to a criminal prosecution.
Mr. Cotsworth, in testifying on   his own   behalf,
HERE AND THERE.
The following message was sent by King Ceorge
to General Sir Gouglas Haig, commander of the British
troops on the French-Belgian front: "Please convey
to the army under your command my sincere congratulations on the result achieved in the recent fighting. I
am proud of my troops. None could have fought more
bravely." General Haig in replying said: "All ranks
will do their utmost to continue to deserve your Majesty's confidence and praise."
"There is a great shortage of heavy horses in Canada, the Canadian market having been drained as a
result of the great derpand for horses of the heavy
type for war service," said Mr. John Bright, Dominion
livestock commissioner, at Toronto, the other day.
"Over 60,000 horses have been taken out of the Dominion since the war started. It is now up to the Canadian breeders to get busy. They must, if a normal
standard is to be maintained after the war is over."
Admiral Jellicoe in his report to the Admiralty, last
week, on the battle of Jutland or Skagerrack, estimates the German losses at two battleships of the
Dreadnought type, one of the Deutschland type, which
was seen to sink; the battle cruiser Lutzow, admitted
by the Germans, one battle cruiser of the dreadnaught
type, one battle cruiser, seen to be so severely damaged that its return was extremely doubtful; five light
cruisers seen to sink-one of them possibly a battleship���six destroyers, seen to sink, three destroyers so
damaged that it was doubtful if they would be able to
reach port, and a submarine sunk���twenty-one vessels
in all. This list which was made up after a most
careful examination of evidence and personal interviews with a large number of officers, Admiral Jellicoe
says he is of opinion "gives the minimum members,
though it is possible it is not accurate as regards the
particular class of vessels, and especially those which
were sunk during the night attack." The report gives
the British losses absolutely as follows, fourteen in
all: His Majesty's ships Queen Mary, Indefatigable,
Invincible, Defence, Black Prince, Warrior, Tipperary,
Ardent, Fortune, Shark, Sparrohawk, Nestor, Nomad,
and Turbulent.
gave some very interesting information with regard to
his proposed calendar, which he said was the result of
twenty-one years of study and was a public reform intended to create a new calendar among all the leading
nations to supplant the different calendars now in use.
The new calendar would provide for thirteen months,
each of twenty-eight days, with two unnamed holidays in the year. All Mondays, etc., would, therefore,
fall on the same series of dates each month and all
months would be of equal length, instead of having
one month 11 per cent, longer than another, although
wages and rent were alike for both. Easter would always fall on the same day of each year. The "Dominion Government had printed and distribute^ at public
expense a lecture on the subject he had given before
the Royal Society in 1902, and an international conference had been called to take place at Ottawa, when the
outbreak of war upset the plans.
The Postoffice Inspector at Vancouver, Mr. John
Greenfield, in giving evidence stated that he had been
in the postoffice service for forty-two years, and that
this was the first time to his knowledge such an action
had been taken. It was certainly a most unfortunate
and inexcusable occasion on which to break the record,
especially when, in addition to all the other overwelm-
ing evidence of no wrong intent, Mr. Cotsworth offered, when the matter was brought to his attention,
to recoup to the Department the sum, about $10, due
for postage on account of the pamphlets that were
mistakenly posted free.
The explanation for such a base and baseless prosecution-persecution has to be sought beneath the surface -underground, so to speak. Mr. Cotsworth was
the compiler and author of the famous "Crisis in B.C."
pamphlet, under the sponsorship of the Ministerial
Association of B. O, which ripped the McBride-Bowser
Government up the back, metaphorically speaking.
Already the author and his sponsors had been made to
suffer in the courts through a carefully picked flaw in
a petty side issue of that scathing arraignment of the
Government. The postal prosecution-persecution was
just the Bowser vendetta breaking out in a new place.
Mr. M. A. Macdonald, who had the temerity to
wipe the floor with the Boswer Government Ministerial candidate in Vancouver, last February, and incidentally make the first great and fatal breach in the
Bowser Government entrenchments, has since been
the mark for all the studied malevolence and poisonous
shafts of the same desperate and vindictive vendetta,
but these are now returning, doubly-barbed, into the
hearts and hands of those who have been and, with a
blind and fatal fatuity, still are sending them forth. Page 2

SPRINGING SURPRISES.
You've got to hand it to the Germans, as Bud Fisher would say, for springing some little subterranean
(we mean, of course, submarine or super-submersible)
naval surprise, from time to time, just at the psychological moment when the "Vaterland" needs chirking
up to keep it still in the ring for a while longer. The
Fmtlen did pretty well very well as a sporadic commerce destroyer in the Indian Ocean and Southern
Seas generally, the first few months of the war until
put out of business by H.M.S. Sidney of the Australian navy. A couple of months ago, the Appam, a
British steamer, was brought into Norfolk, Va., an
American port, by a German prize crew that had
"come up from below" in mid-At Ian tic.
This last little episode, which was undoubtedly
clever and thrilling, but, like so much of the Teutonic
activity in the waters under the earth and the atmosphere above it, had no appreciable naval or military
value, lost nothing, we may be sure, in the telling in
Germany, and helped some for a time. The Allied
ring of steel and fire, especially on the Eastern front,
at Verdun, on the Meuse and on the Somme, was
pressing closer and cutting deep, however. A desperate attempt to do something really worth while in a
naval way, on May 31st last, proved a fearful failure,
despite brave protestations of success. To revive the
drooping spirits and restore the shaken morale, another little submarine diversion had to be staged.
Again an American port, this time Baltimore, Md.,
was the chosen scene publicity and neutral opinion
not to be sneezed at. And up bobs the German undersea freighter, Deutschland, Sunday last, sixteeen
days from Heligoland, with a valuable cargo, about
750 tons, of chemicals and dyestuffs aboard, and
boastfully heralded as the first of a regular line of
super-submarine merchantmen, which will laugh to
scorn the British blockade and enable Germany to participate in the American munitions trade, which she
has so virulently denounced.
When the bouquets have been thrown and the headgear doffed to German ingenuity and theatric daring,
it still remains to lie observed that one swallow does
not make a summer," and that one even super-submarine, that has managed on the way out -it has not
yet got back to its home port to escape the fate that
has befallen some hundreds probably of its tribe, does
not constitute a regular Bremen to Baltimore merchant
line; and, finally, that Britannia still rules the wave
for all practical purposes more surely and effectively
than she has at any time either before or since the
war, and is getting a pretty good grip on the land, and
that this little episode, interesting and imagination-
stirring though it is, will probably have no more real
effect upon the course, continuation, or outepme of the
war than others of a like nature that have preceded it.
HERE AND THERE.
Chas. T. Russell, self-styled "pastor" and known
throughout the continent as "Pastor" Russell, was,
last week, refused entrance to Canada by the immigration authorities at Gretna, Man. This action was
taken on account of the "pastor's" anti-recruiting
speeches at Toronto, Peterboro, and other Canadian
cities which he recentlv visited.
The exploit of the German submarine merchantman
Deutschland, in evading the Allied blockade by lying
at Heligoland nine days after clearing from Bremen,
and docking at Baltimore sixteen days out, while evoking the admiration of the liritish people, is appraised
in London as of value childly as an '"advertisement of
German enterprise." "The navy can be relied upon
to speedily cripple submarine merchantman activities." a high naval authority is quoted as saying, and
to members of the British Government is credited the
quiet asseition that this new move of Germany will be
met "in a swift and effective manner." British sub
marines, it is incidentally recalled, have frequently
made transatlantic trips, under their own'power.
The proverbial "cat that stole the cream" was no
more concerned to preserve a studiously unconcerned
and innocent facial expression, while furtively licking
its chops, than is the twin Matson-Bowser organ that
yowls early in the morning on the back fences of Vancouver feverishly anxious to acquit its masters and
paymasters at James Bay, Victoria, of the charge of
dishonestly masquerading before the country on a
platform cribbed bodily, as to practically all the sound
planks entering into it, from the Liberals. The ingenious defence- a pure invention, of course���of this
journalistic feline whose masters confiscated the Liberal butter-fat is that the good platform planks in
question were lost or covered up by their owners, and
Nearly a half-million Austrians and Geamans have
been put out of commission since Gen. Brusiloff, the
Russian commander, began his great advapce a little
over a month ago. The grand total of prisoners to
date is in round numbers 235,000, of which 4.500 are
officers. Without the actual figures regarding the
dead and wounded, careful estimates by military experts, based on the best information, places the latter
at 200,000 to 220,000. The Austrians predominate
overwhelmingly among the prisoners, but among the
dead and wounded it is said that a fairly large percentage are Germans: The German losses in stopping
the Russian advance on Kevel anj} in counter-attacks
made in solid ranks were enormous. The booty captured reaches incalculable figures. It is figured that
250 guns of various sizes and upward of 700 machine
guns is a conservative estimate. In addition, vast
quantities of munitions, supplies and transports have
fallen into the hands of the'Russians.
With the fixing of the date���September 14���for the
general election, the issue has been joined and the
fight is now on, in a special and definite sense, to a
clear-cut, conclusive finish, a little more than two
months hence. Paraphrasing Nelson's immortal message: Not British Columbia only, but Canada, the
Empire, expects every man to do his duty. Not in the
trenches alone is there a sacred, patriotic duty to perform these testing days. The best minds throughout
the Empire are at one in manifesting the greatest concern to anticipate and provide in advance as far as
possible for after-the-war problems, and in emphasizing the fact that there is a great house-cleaning and
reconstructive work, political, social, and industrial, to
be done���a veritable national rebirth to be achieved���
if the tremendous sacrifices of the war are not to have
been made largely in vain. In no part of the Empire
is there so great a need, so urgent a necessity, as in
British Columbia, for wiping the slate clean and making a fresh start.
The question whether Great Britain will be able to
maintain an adequate supply of ammunition at the
present rate of wastage, received an answer in part,
the other day, from Frederick G. Kellaway, M. P.,
secretary to Dr. Christopher Addison, who, next to
David Lloyd-George, is the most important official in
the ministry of munitions. Mr. Kellaway says ' 'We
are not yet at the full flood of our output of guns and
shells. If the Germans cannot be driven home otherwise, our army shall have such a supply of guns that
the timbers shall touch each other in a continuous line
from the Somme to the sea." He added that ninety
new arsenals had been provided, and that 4,000 controlled firms were producing munitions. The greatest
number of munition workers in 1914, he said, was under two millions, and there now were three and a half
millions. The labor problem, Mr. Kellaway asserted,
had been to a large extent solved by the women. Before the war, 18,000 women were engaged in war industries.   There were now 660,000 so engaged.
If the Saturday half holiday Act curtailed the hours
for selling intoxicating liquors by hotel bars and liquor
stores on that day, so much the wovse for the Saturday half holiday Act, says Premier Bowser, in effect
- it was obviously not intended, he says, that the half
holiday enactment should affect the 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
hours allowed for liquor selling, for six days in the
week, by the amended Liquor Act of last session,
Clerks in Vancouver liquor stores have informed the
Government, further says Mr. Bowser, that they don't
want the Saturday half holiday anyway, as they are
otherwise provided with plenty off-time. The police
authorities in Victoria and New Westminster were deferring prosecutions for liquor selling Saturday afternoon. So Mr. Bowser obligingly (perhaps sub-consciously remembering that a general election is "dangerously near") relieves the terrible tension by declaring,
in effect, by a special minute of Council, that the purveyors of "Dutch courage" have holidays enough
without having an unwanted Saturday half-holiday
thrust upon them.
The announcement that the German submarine
freighter Deutschland is to take back a cargo of nickel,
"of which the enemy is sorely in need," raises a
question of considerable interest and importance. Canada (notably the Sudbury region) is the repository of
all the great nickel deposits of the continent the
American nickel resources being negligible. Under a
guarantee that no Canadian nickel would reach the
enemy, what is known as the# International Nickel
Company or Trust, operating on both sides of the
line, has been permitted to export nickel to the United
States for refining. The bona fides of this international nickel trust, it is said, has never been doubted
by either the British or Canadian Governments; but,
rather than that the smallest amount of nickel, much
needed (and supplied by Canada to the Allies) for war
munitions, should be diverted into Germany, it would
be better not to be too confiding and to cancel altogether the permission for export to the United States,

has given us in this matter.
The Bowser Government party are getting it   "go-
��
ing and coming," these days," in the drily humorous
figure of Mr. Brewster, at the recent Vancouver meeting. Every political ill that a dissolute and moribund
body political is heir to has overtaken it in its dying
throes: Constituencies without candidates, candidates
without constituencies, and, perhaps more excruciating than all, two quarrelling Bowser faction candidates
for one constituency ! Such is the case at Cranbrook,
one of the Kootenay districts, where a nominating
convention held last week to put up a candidate to contest the riding against Dr. J. H. King, the Liberal
candidate, split in two, the Young Conservatives capturing the hall and forcing the parent organization to
convene elsewhere. Both organizations, breathing
threatening and slaughter each at the other, nominated
a candidate- the Friskies sticking to Caven, one of
Bowser's anti-prohibition lambs in the last Legislature,
while the Old Boys denounced Caven as "a disgrace to
the party" and his supporters as patronage hunters,
andnominated Watts of Wattsburg as their champion.
Both sides claim the victory, and have sent for Umpire
Bowser to say which is which. Poor Bowser! But
it's coming to him! 15

Following another defeat from the li.
C. Electric Railway nine, Tuesday night,
ami the general poor run of success, the
Fraser Mills team has dropped out of the
City League, and as the game between

not be played.

in the City Hall, Wednesday night, of
returned soldiers, and temporary officers were elected, with Sergt. Major

life imprisonment by the Minister of Justice, Chong Li, tlie Chinese who was
sentenced to be hanged on July 13, has
been removed from the Provincial jail

which killed his compatriot at Sumas
Landing last autumn, may have been
struck in self defence.
There will be no change in the weekly
market day in this city, for the present
at least. As a result of Mayor Gray's interviews with a number of the patrons of
the market, both buyers and sellers, he
has come to the conclusion that nochange
should be made until it is definitely established as to ihe effect the weekly Saturday half-holiday will have on trade.
The   suggestion was   that   market   duy
should   be   changed    from    Friday   to
Thursday.

For carrying a gun in his motor car
without a license, Saturday last, Purnell
Keary was, on Monday, fined $5 and
costs in Police Court, He explained that
he was merely returning from a shoot of
the Gun Club, but it was pointed out
that the law requires a license to be taken out even for this. A line of $50 was
also imposed for, at the same
time, obstructing the highway with
his car near the B.C.U.K. Miltsidc-
New Westminster track, just this

Citv   Market.
To-day's market generally was up to
form, attendance being particularly
large; but meats of all kinds, including
veal, were conspicuous by their absence,
except in negligible supply. Prices consequently showed an upward tendency
from last week's figures. Poultry was
in good supply and demand, with a
slightly downward tendency. N'ew potatoes fell to $1,75 per sack. Strawberries
were practically uot to be had, the season being oyer. Raspberries made their
appearance, at 3 boxes, for 25c, and
black currants at $1.75 per crate of is
lbs. Prices in other lines ruled about
the same as last week.
"Grease" and  Soap-GreaHe.
Since the lid  is  off   ths  Vancouver
School Hoard caldron now the obstructors having climbed down as a result of
Mr. Justice Morrison's decision, last
week, ami allowed the investigation under Mr. [ustice Murphy, opening Monday last, lo proceed one or two things
stand out a good deal clearer than before,
One does not wonder at the strenuous
efforts that were made to hold down the
lid, and the evident anxiety of Premier
Bowser to junk the old ticket and draw
for a new running team iu Vancouver is
is also now fully explained.
Why, since the caldron was opened,
ami just sampled, vou can hardly see F.
W. Welsh, of the' old ticket, for soap
"grease" and such like, and the caldron
has also sprung and slopped over a Leek
thai makes a noise like another pf the
"solid six."
Speaking of "grease," Premier Bowser
told the Songhees reserve scandal committee, last spring, that he was an expert as to its uses, not only among Indians, but others- he didn't say anything
about "soap grease" but the Vancouver
School Hoard could give Mr. Bowser
pointers about that- provided, of course,
they didn't gel their pointers from him !
It is Impossible to go into particulars
here, but llu- investigation so far bus
shown generally, and brought out lots of
specific instances, that a regular system
of lirst inflating and then "milking"

carried out; that bu-iiiess concerns that

THE CITY COUNCIL.
Long Looked for Road Connection with
Woodward NOw Assured ��� $25 Reward for Conviction of Park and
Garden Vandals.
The Council met at the usual hour
Monday evening, present Aid. Bryson,
Jardine, Goulet, McAdam, Eastman, and
Dodd. His Worship Mayor Gray being
absent on a delegation to Ladner, Aid.
Bryson was voted to the chair, and, after
the formal passing of the minutes, the
business of the session was opened with
an unusually long list of
Communications.
The Secretary and Manager ol the
Vancouver Exhibition Association wrote,
asking permission to hang a banner
across one of the city streets advertising
the Vancouver Fair, which opens August
14th next. The communication was, ou
motion, received and referred to the Police Committee to report.
The City Clerk of Nanalmo enclosed a
copy of a lengthy resolution passed by
the Nanaimo City Council, re inspection
of dairy cattle and premises, calling upon
the Provincial Government to put in
force an improved and more drastic
system of inspection of dairies, milking stock, etc., making it compulsory in all cases, and providing reasonable compensation when animals infected
with tuberculosis had to be destroyed.
The endorsement of this Council was
asked.
Aid. Goulel, moved, seconded by Aid.
Eastman, that the communication and
resolution be referred to the Health
Committee to report. There was no
doubt, said Aid. Goulet, that much of
' the resolution could be endorsed, but
there was a good deal that required looking into.
Aid. Eastman agreed that a large part
of the resolution could be endorsed, but
there was great doubt with regard to
some clauses, particularly that calling for
inspection of animals coming into the
country, which apparently would mean a
duplicate inspection, as the Dominion
authorities carried out such an inspection
now.
Aid. McAdam suggested that the Dominion and Provincial Governments between them had for the past live years
been pretty thoroughly covering the
ground traversed by the resolution, but
he was in favor of the motion referring
the matter for report, which was duly
put and carried.
A cordial invitation to the Fire Chief
and Fire Committee to attend the convention of Fire Chiefs at Windsor, Out.,
Aug. 8-11, was received from the Chief
and Fire Department of Windsor, and
refeired to the Fire Committee.
A circular letter was received from the
Lieut.-Governor of the Province, al the
suggestion of the Governor-General, that
a public meeting be held on August 4th
next, the second anniversary of the participation of Great Britain in the world
war, to re-affirm the resolution passeil a
year ago declaring the inflexible determination of the citizens to continue their
support of the war to a victorious end.
Ou motion of Aid. Goulet and Eastman,
the communication was received aud referred to a committee of the whole Council in special meeting Thursday afternoon. ���
Two communications were received
from the General Supt. B.C.E.R., the
first stating he had arranged to have the
water service from the fire main at car
barns disconnected, and the second asking for copy of agreement as to fire main
installation dated Sept. 14, 1914. Received and filed, and copy of agreement
asked reported forwarded.
A communication was received from
Engineer of Way B.C.E.R., re water
supply for new freight shed on Front
street; also asking that the industrial
tracks at that location be planked. Referred to Water Committee to report.
The secretary of the Returned Soldiers'
Committee wrote, asking for the use of
the Board of Trade room in the City
Hall, for Wednesday evening, for a
meeting.    Request granted.
An invitation was received from the
Hon. Secretary-Treasurer of the Union
of Canadian Municipalities, asking delegates from this Council lo attend the
annual convention of the Union, to be
held at Montreal, Aug 21-23; also enclosing list of papers and topics to be
presented, This was significantly referred lo the Finance Committee to report, evidently to see il the Aldermen
had the price.
The Vancouver-Prince Rupert Meat
Co., enclosing the amount of their account for water for the past month,
$128.07, wrote, stating they paid under
protest, ami calling attention to anomalies in the scale of water rates wherein-
they had to pav, al 8 cents nett, >1J.S.H7
for 161,.Ui) cubic led, whereas, had they
wasted sufficient water to bring their total up to 250,000 cubic feet, the cost, at
the reduced rate ol I cents for that
amount, would have been just $100;
therefore, by wasting 98,560 cubic feet ol
water, they would have saved $28.07. A
fiat rate was asked, for tlie 'future, not
exceeding $300 a year.
On motion of Aid. Dodd and Jardine,
the communication was received and referred to the Water Committee to report.
The next communication in order was
one from R. J. Jordan, asking to be recompensed for injury to his fool, receiv
ed while unloading rock al the Market
wharf, on the 1st inst. This was referred
lo the Harbor Committee to report,
Chief Watson of the Fire Department
wrote, informing the Council that I,.
Pearson, recently appointed to a vacii' ey,
had jumped the job, and thai F, House!
bad been installed in bis place, mi probation; also recommending that 500 feet
of lire hose be purchased. On motion of
Aid. Jardine and Goulet, communication
received and recommendation adopted.
Reports.
Aid. Jardine, for the Finance Committee, recommended the payment of an
account of $50 to T. R. Pearson, for services re insurance schedule.    Adopted.
Aid. Dodd repo ted verbablv   for   tile
Water Committee, that they had met, on
Thursday, the manager of the B.C.E.R.
Co., in relation to the illicit use of water
from fire service main; that he had acknowledged full responsibility for the
connection, but claimed it had been done
in error; and that the committee had
decided not to disconnect the service until the Council had had opportunity to
reconsider. On motion, report received
and further time granted committee.
Aid. McAdam, chairman of the Health
Committee, reported, in connection with
the further report asked for from tbe
M.H.O. and the building Inspector as to
changes required iu certain city dairies
to comply with the by-law, that, owing
to the absence of Dr.'Wilson, M.H.O.,
on his holidays, further time was required, which,   on motion, was granted.
Aid. Eastman made a verbal report to
the effect that he had, at the request of
the Mayor, attended a meeting at Vancouver and had listened to an able and
instructive address by Mr. Thomas
Adams, who was practically a representative of the Dominion Government, on
Town Planning, IK- had invited Mr.
Adams to come over to New Westminster
and address a meeting and he had agreed
to be over at 2:30 Tuesday afternoon and
address a meeting in the Hoard of Trade
Room, City Hall.      Report adopted.
Aid Jardine reported that In-had, with
the Mayor, nu-t a deputation of tlie Richmond Council on l.ulu Island, that they
had gone over the No. 5 road leading to
Woodward, ami thai an agreement had
been reached whereby tbe Richmond
Council would go half-and-half with this
Council in putting that road into shape
the share of each would be .$5(111 or ��600
���aud, with the$5,0000 Provincial grant,
the long desired connection between this
city and Woodward Landing and the
Ladner-Wood ward ferry was in a way to
be shortly realized.
Aid. Goulet, in a few remarks, emphasized the importance to the city of
the arrangement that had been reached,
aud, on motion of Aid. Goulet and Eastman, the board of Works was authoriized
to proceed at once with the city's share
of the work.
Aid. McAdam reported that in Moody
Park trees were being mischievously
barked or girdled, apparently by young
lads, and there should be some means
found of stopping it.
Aid. Eastman, who spoke very strongly and feelingly on the subject, said he
had noticed the same thing, and referred
to other instances of vandalism in various parts of the citv, not all by voung
lads.
On motion of Aid. Eastman, seconded
bv Aid. McAdam, it was determined to
offers reward of $25 for information
leading to the arrest and conviction of
such offenders.
The Shops Regulation By-law, 1916,
again came up for reconsideration, and a
further extension of time was, on motion, granted.
A resolution was passed authorizing
the City Solicitor to consolidate the Fire
Prevention Hy-law and amendments.
any plans or problems that might by
that time be formulated.
Questions or criticisms from the audience were invited, and Mr. James Cunningham, who thought the town didn't
need much fixing, and Mr. J. W. Cunningham, who was more appreciative of
the town planning idea, responded.
After some remarks by Mayor Gray
and a brief reply to the different speakers: by Mr. Adams, that gentleman was
made the recipient of a hearty vote of
thanks, moved, in appreciative terms, by
Mr. T. J. Trapp and Aid. Eastman, and
left with Mayor Gray, in an auto, for a
look over the city and a run to the Colony Farm.
MUNICIPAL     PROBLEMS.
Citizens Hear Thought  Provoking Address on Town Planning by Mr.
Thomas Adams.
Pursuant to his acceptance of the invitation extended by 'Aid. Eastman, at
Vancouver, Monday, Mr. Thos. Adams,
of Otlawa, town planning advisor to the
Dominion Commission of Conservation,
visited the city Tuesday afternoon, and
addressed an informally convened meeting of citizens in the Council Chamber,
City Hall, about three o'clock, His Worship Mayor Gray presiding and introducing the speaker.
In explaining and elucidating his subject of town planning and applying it to
local conditions, Mr. Adams sketched
some of the municipal problems that had
been created in this and other Western
cities as a result of the late great real
estate movement. The multiplying of
sub-divisions and the greatly disproportionate area of our cities as compared
with population had immensely increased
the cost of municipal administration, in
the matter of construction and maintenance of streets, sidewalks, sewers, water
works, lighting, etc, The right or wrong-
laving out of towns, too, had a great
deal lo do with their economical administration or the reverse.
As to the planning of New Westminster,
which he understood had been the work
of the Royal Engineers, it had evidently
been done, Mr. Adams said, largely witli
ti view lo military considerations. The
streets had bein run at right angles to
the river right up-the bill, so that guns
could be conveniently trained on an
enemy coming from the south, This had
made heavy grades, a constant tax upon
civic administration and upon industry,
The true science ol town planning
adapted the plan to the particulai topography ol tin- site, Incidentally, Mr.
Adams   spoke    very appreciatively about
the planning unci Improvements of   the
Central ami High School grounds in this
city.
Continuing, Mr. Adams said his duty
was not so much to criticize as to render
help, to suggest means of  improvement
lor the future. It was not possible to
'make great Changes in what had already
beet) established, The best way to do
was to take slock of tbe present situation and lay down a plan to be worked
ti. in future, so thai future growth and
o w iopinenl ol the city, which was
bound lo come, might be intelligently
directed along lines leading lo symmetry,
Utility, and greater economy of administration. We should plan lor twenty or
thirty years ahead, ou a reasonable basis.
.\ preliminary requisite lor the cities of
tliis Province was to gel a Town Planning Act put upon the statute books, so
that any definite and approved plan for
the general advantage could be carried
out without being blocked or penalized
for speculative purposes,
Mr. Adams mentioned, in conclusion,
that he expected to be out at the coast
early iu the fall again, when he would be
glad to meet the citizens once more and
advise with them more   definitely as   to
