Vol. I.
Number 18
Hon. W. J. Bowser, Premier, accompanied by Hon.
Wm. Manson, newly inducted Minister of Agriculture,
and H. B. Thompson, assistant Government whip in
the late Legislature, passed through Vancouver on
Saturday last, en route to Victoria, having completed
the preliminary Northern tour of about three weeks,
which has included such important points as Prince
Rupert, Hazelton, Prince George, and generally the
country along the Grand Trunk and in the Skeena,
Bulkley, and Nechaco Valleys, and also Cariboo and
Chilcotin points, returning by way of Ashcroft and the
C. P. R. Incidentally, Hon. W. R. Ross, whose transplanting from Fernie to Prince George was one of the
strictly non-political objects of the Ministerial tour,
was left in the North to make the acquaintance of
his new constituency and spend a sort of political
honeymoon while he may.
Premier Bowser, as every one expected him to do
(he has made a reputation for optomistic clinical bulletins of his Government's waning health), expressed
himself to the worshipful party press at Vancouver as
"exceedingly well satisfied with the results" of the
tour, which, by the way, he describes as ' 'a survey of
the Province." Entering into details, we are astonished to find, considering the professed entirely non-
political nature of the expedition, that the only "results" referred to are purely political. As a result of
his "survey," which would appear to have been foc-
ussed for only one sort of effect, Mr. Bowser, with the
ease and celerity of a practiced hand, arrives at one
jump, scorning any half-way, modest measures, at the
exceedingly gratifying conclusion to the would-be dictator in perpetuity of British Columbia, that: "The
local political conditions in the North country are such
as to make practically certain the return of a solid
Conservative representation.''
Apart altogether from what the facts may be, that,
as intimated, is just the sort of report that Premier
Bowser might have been expected to bring back from
his Northern tour, for consumption at the coast.
After he has "surveyed" the entire Province, non-
politically, of course, it will be possible, by piecing together the reports issued for the various precincts, to
arrive at the calamitous conclusion for British Columbia that there is nothing for it but that the next Legislature will be a replica of the last���only more so���one
dictator (there used to be two, which was better) and
about thirty-nine rubber-stamps. We believe that
would give a chance for one Liberal and one Socialist,
or perhaps two of a kind, to be trailed, as a sort of
foil, at the triumphant chariot wheels of the Government juggernaut! >
But, cheer up ! British Columbia, such a horrible
fate may not be in store for you. You may even dare
to hope, Bowser's prognostications to the contrary notwithstanding, that the Bowser Government juggernaut
may be derailed and completely wrecked in the avalanche of the general election, and be nothing more
than a hideous nightmare memory in the future life
of the Province, In fact, unless all the signs fail, that
is more likely than not to happen.
Concerning this same Northern tour and its alleged
"results," a very different report, and more worthy
of credence than Premier Bowser's, is given by the
Prince Rupert News, as follows: "Wherever Bowser
and company have gone, and in Bella Coola, which
they have been afraid to visit, they are looked upon
as political tricksters, whose conduct is ruled by expediency and not by provincial needs. * * * The old
Bowser game is played out, and the Ministers who are
now in the Interior are so well aware of the fact that
they are seriously considering wholesale changes in
their plans, one of them being to stall off the election
to the last possible moment in the hope that conditions
will improve a little and that they will get the credit
for it."
Russia, having had an experience of the benefits of
war prohibition, has lately determined to make it permanent, having decreed that no liquor containing more
than 2J% alcohol���which might come under the designation of a "temperance drink" shall be sold as a
The Alberta Prohibition Act came into effect on
Dominion Day, and the statement is made by the Attorney-General's Department that it will leave nothing
undone to enforce prohibition. There will be two
vendors for the present who will be permitted to supply a certain amount of liquor to druggists, veterin-
aries, clergymen, doctors and other persons permitted
under the Act to use it, one for Edmonton and one for
Calgary. The post of vendor in Calgary, it is stated,
has been offered to and accepted by the Rev. Dr. John
McDougall, the pioneer Alberta missionary. Dr. McDougall announces that he will enforce the law to the
After nearly two years of patient preparation, during which all they could do, broadly speaking, was to
doggedly hold their own against the tremendous odds
of a super-prepared antagonist, the Allies have at
last, apparently, reached the crest of preparedness,
both as regards men and munitions, from which they
will be able for the remainder of the war, be it long or
short, to dominate the situation on every front, seize
and maintain the initiative, and surely and resistlessly,
if slowly, encircle and crush the now practically beaten, but not yet vanquished, Central Powers, who, responsible for the most colossal and frightful war of
history, have so far managed to escape their inevitable
and now swiftly approaching Nemesis.
The crisis was doubtless hastened by the crippling
blow to German hopes and prestige and German power for mischief delivered in the North Sea by the
British navy a little over a month ago, which has been
followed by a tightening of the relentless British bulldog grip of the German throat by the never, relaxing
British naval blockade. Russia's smashing come-back
and still maintained advance on the eastern front, and
Italy's recent successes against the Austrians on the
south, are further links in the chain of co-ordinated
Allied offensive, which was lately also drawn tighter
at Salonica by effective pressure insuring the harm-
lessness at least of Greece, in the event of an early
advance from that quarter.
Meanwhile, on the western front, through Belgium
and northern France, the most formidable and heavily
defended (from the German point of view) front of
all, Germany has been battering herself to pieces
against the magnificent stone-wall defence of the
French at Verdun and the British, Canadian and Belgian held lines farther west to the coast. But the
hour has struck in the councils of the Allies when here,
too, on this all but impregnable front, the watchword
is "Advance!" and not simply hold, as before. The
brunt of this latest and most difficult offensive, which
may be said to have begun on Dominion Day, after
nearly a week of the most terrific and effective bombardment of the war, is being >��* ne hy the .new and
enormously strengthened, both with men and munitions, British armies, including doubtless the Canadian
divisions, and supported by the French on the right.
At the very outset, along a front of twenty-five
miles, the German first and second line labyrinths of
trenches were taken and a wedge driven at least five
miles into the enemy's positions. Since, the advantages gained have been held and augmented, against
a resistance that has been stubborn and desperate;
but, as the advance is unremittingly pushed and becomes general, as there is every prospect it will be, it
would seem not improbable that we are on the eve of
the most dramatic development of the whole titanic
struggle���a distinct and disastrous break, on the crucial western front, of the hitherto practically unbroken
German war machine, with all the swiftly following
consequences that such a break would imply.
Summarizing the results and the naval situation,
British and German comparatively, three weeks after
the great naval battle off the Jutland coast, on May
31st last, Archibald Hurd, the naval expert, declared
it was then possible, in the light of an immense mass
of information from British and neutral sources, "to
form what will prove a verdict of the historians on
one of the most splendid incidents of our naval annals." The results and comparative situation he
summarized in brief:
The German high seas fleet, weaker by five capital
ships, is so lame that it cannot move, if it dared to do
so.   That is a matter on which there can be no doubt.
When the war opened Germany possessed the following ships of the cruiser class .(built and building)
less than fifteen years old, those lost in the course of
the war being given:
Battle cruisers���Original number, eight; since lost,
six, comprising the Lutzow, Goeben, Sedlitz (a complete wreck), Bluecher, Hindenburg, and another of a
similar type, which, it is believed, is the Von Der
Large cruisers���Original number, seven; since lost,
five, comprising the Yorck, Schornhorst, Gneisenau,
Friedrich Karl and the Prinz Adelbert. The two remaining vessels are the Roon (launched in 1903, therefore thirteen years old), and the Prinz Heinrich (1900).
Light cruisers Original number, thirty; since lost,
twenty, comprising the Karlsruhe, Magdburg, Koln,
Mainz, Emden, Dresden, Nurnberg, Koenigsbnrg,
Leipzig, Bremen, Undine, Rostock, Wiesbaden, Bres-
lau, Frauenlob, Elbing, Ariadne and three others, the
names of which have not been revealed. N
Out of the forty-five effective cruisers of all classes
which Germany had built and was building when the

year of ��26,090,000. The imports for the same period
amounted to ��202,123,000, an increase of ��16,056,000.
The "sweet young thing" who was asked what
could be sadder than a man without a country, and
feelingly responded, "a country without a man," will
be able to appreciate the feelings of the Bowser party
in British Columbia, who are getting it both 'ways
these times���many constituencies being without their
wonted Conservative candidates, and at least one candidate, and.he a Minister of the Crown, being spued
out of his constituency and having to "pack his grip"
and hunt another one. There'll be a job lot of Bowser
candidates without constituencies after the election.
The Military Hospitals Commission, says a late Ottawa advice, has issued a notice calling attention to
the fact that the Government is providing artificial
limbs for all members of the expeditionary forces who
have suffered amputation, and that a few imposters
who are going about the country soliciting subscriptions for artificial limbs for soldiers should be reported
to the authorities. A special factory is being established by the Hospital Commission, in connection with
the new convalescent hospital in Toronto, for the manufacture and fitting of artificial limbs for all who require them.
An account from an independent, unofficial source
of that little political bethrothal ceremony last week,
the rejected of Fernie (Hon. W. R. Ross) to Prince
George, does not show that Prince George was quite
so "unanimous" and opened-armed as the court reporter had it. This little side light is let in by the
Prince Rupert News' representative on the ground:
"Pre-emptors who had always voted Tory in the past
and who had walked twenty-four miles to attend' the
meeting asked what Prince George had done to Fernie
that Fernie 'should hand us a lemon like this. He is a
self confessed failure,' they shouted, pointing to
John P. Lennon, the treasurer of the American
Federation of Labor, says that seventy per cent, of the
drink bill of the United States is contributed by the
American laboring man. On which a contemporary
pertinently comments: "What does that'mean? It
means that liquor money is generally bread money,
meat money, shoe money, and money that ought to be
spent for clothing. It generally means that some
stomachs go hungry for bread, some feet go poorly
shod, some bodies go inadequately clothed, in order
that the liquor may gratify the unspeakable appetite
it creates for strong drink. It means that liquor
money is generally needed for the necessities and
comforts of life."
The ripples of the prohibition wave have spread up
north. The Yukon Territorial Legislature, last week,
passed a bill providing for a referendum election on
the question of prohibition in Yukon Territory, not
later than September 1. The action was taken
or! petition submitted by the prohibitionists. If
the bill is adopted by the voters, prohibition will become effective July 14, 1917. The bill prohibits the
manufacture and sale of intoxicants of all kinds and
makes no provision for importation for personal consumption, thus going the Bowser Bill very decidedly
one better. Only intoxicants for medicinal and mechanical purposes would be permitted to be brought
into the territory.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier continues untiringly the magnificently patriotic work that he has been doing, among
his Quebec compatriots particularly, since the outbreak
of the war. Speaking at Brome, Que., Dominion Day,
at a Red Cross rally, when he discussed the war situation from every angle, the Liberal chieftain of Canada
said: "We must have more soldiers and must count
on every man, irrespective of race or origin, to do his
share. I especially ask my French-Canadian friends
to do their part. There are men among them who
tell them they must not enlist because they claim we
have grievances in Ontario. Let me tell them that
the grievances will be settled by the law courts, arid
that there are duties and obligations as well as rights."
war opened, she, therefore, possesses to-day only fourteen, and of these a large proportion was so seriously
damaged in the battle off Jutland as to be at present
ineffective. Those fourteen cruisers have to suffice
for duty as scouts for battle squadrons, parent ships
for torpedo flotillas, and for patrol work in the Bailie. Page 2

bunch or not. Premier Bowser and Hon. "Doc" Mc-

nominations at least, but this calling for a new deal
itself, on the very eve of the elections, is significant

party��� and there are reasons!

Speaking lo a bumper house, Tuesday night, in the
chief city of the Province���the eonstituencv which appropriately led off and dealt the Bowser machine a
smashing blow in February last, thai was but the prelude to the knockout scheduled for September next���
H. C. Brewster, Liberal leader, and his first lieutenant, M. A. Macdonald, got away to a good start, scored
a most auspicious opening, in the Provincial general
election campaign, which it is now more evident than
ever is destined to triumphantly complete the good
work of the preliminary bout of the  by-elections.
Every one who keeps himself at all posied and
open minded in regard to Provincial political history is
perfectly aware that the indictment against the Bowser Government and its immediate predecessor is and
has been for some time complete and unanswerable,
and that the recent session, with the added facilities
for yarding out the facts furnished by the presence of
the Liberal leader and his lieutenant in the House as
the direct result of the by-elections, but confirmed and
clinched the damning arraignment. The only question
was, Were these facts going to be temporarily obscured, their vivid impression upon the public mind
dimmed for a time, by the great cloud of election irregularities asphyxiating gas, and other distortions
and misrepresentations loosed by the Government for
that purpose? And, as a corollary, Was there a possibility that the Government, by this ruse, was going to
escape being brought to judgment and execution at
this time?
No single constituency in the Province was more
competent and qualified to answer these questions
than the city of Vancouver���which can speak for so
large a proportion of the electorate���which spoke first
and so emphatically in February last���which was the
scene of the alleged election irregularities that the
Bowser Government has tried so desperately to exploit
for political purposes. And Vancouver gave her
answer in the splendid reception, Tuesday night, accorded the Liberal leader and his lieutenant, M. A.
Macdonald, who vindicated himself completely and
convincingly from the slanderous aspersions put upon
him by the instigators of as foul a political conspiracy
as was ever conceived and carried out in Canada.
No one who was present at that meeting in the
Empress Theatre will doubt for a moment that M. A.
Macdonald, as well as his leader, H. C. Brewster,
stand higher in the confidence and esteem of the people of Vancouver than ever, and that the verdict of
the by-election will be repeated and emphasized in
thunderous tones- a veritable trump of doom for the
Bowser Government   in the general election.

Seven names were put in nomination at the Conservative convention in Chilliwack, Friday afternoon last,
called to choose a candidate in the place of the late
member, S. A. Cawley, who has taken a "safety first"
position on the staff of the Agricultural Credits Commission. All withdrew except W. L. Macken, P. H.
Wilson and J. P. Robertson, and on a vote Mr. Macken
received a majority, and will be the Bowser standard
bearer against Mr. E, I). Barrow, tin; Liberal candidate, who has been in the field for many months.
Besides kissing the babies, talking crops, bringing
in the family kindling, and generally making himself
useful and agreeable in his recent Northern tour, Premier Bowser was permitted to "pan out" some "pay
dirt" on a Cariboo creek. The press agents took a
snap-shot of the interesting little performance, which
was duly printed in the bureau press. It was amusingly apparent from the "picter" that the proprietor
of the "creek," while he kept one eye on his own pan,
maintained a very pronounced undershot squint on the
Premier's manipulations, as if to insure that no "colors" found their way into the Government campaign
The complete shattering of the Bowser Government
trenches in Vancouver by the high explosive shell of the

Lieut. Sir Ernest Shackleton has been unable to
rescue the men, numbering twenty-two, and comprising the main body of his Antarctic expedition, who
were left on Elephant Island. This information was
received in a despact from Shackleton from Port Stanley, Falkland Island. The explorer returned on the
steamer which had been placed at his disposal by the
Uruguayan Government for the purpose of effecting
the rescue of his men. According to his despatch, the
ice conditions had increased so in severity that he was
unable to get closer to the island than twenty miles.
He thinks there is still hope for the men, however, as
there is an excellent chance that they will be able to
survive on short rations, supplemented by penguins,
until another rescue party, provided with an ice-breaker, can push through to them.
The Liberal convention held in Nanaimo, last Friday, unanimously selected Wm. Sloan, former member
of the House of Commons for Comox-Atlin, as their
candidate for the Provincial Legislature. In accepting
the nomination, Mr. Sloan took occasion to correct the
Conservative story that, if* elected, he would resign to
run for the Dominion House when the next election
came. If elected to the Legislature for Nanaimo, he
would remain as long as the electors of Nanaimo saw
fit to send him. He had become interested in Federal
politics, but had come to the conclusion that he would
be of greater use to the people at this time by entering
Provincial politics. Mr. Sloan will make a very strong
candidate. In the last Legislature, the constituency
was represented by John T. W. Place, but it is said
that he will not get the Socialist nomination again, and
in fact that there is a good deal of doubt whether that
party will put up a candidate at all.
"Premier and Party Toboggan in Fraser," "His
Heart Badly Affected," "Is the First Plant of Its
Kind in B. C." are sensational contiguous headlines in
a late issue of the Vancouver Province. The first,
which might very well stand for an uncanny "second-
sight" forecast of the result of the forthcoming general election, is found, on closer examination, to refer
to a mildly exciting motor boat trip by Premier Bowser and his party, on their recent "surveying" expedition, in the Upper F#gser from Prince George to
Quesnelle. The second surmounts a patent medicine
ad., and the third, which sounds omniously like the
last obsequies of the reckless political tobogganers,
after they have been "welded into one harmonious
hole," is discovered to have reference lo a sulphuric
acid plant in Trail. The organs should be careful and
not spoil the last "joy ride" of the Bowser bunch by
such cruelly realistic visions of their near by latter
The distinguished novelist, Sir Rider Haggard, who
is on a tour of the Overseas Dominions on an Imperial
patriotic mission, reached British Columbia, last week,
and in interviews and speeches has been making known
the objects of his trip. In an interview at Victoria With
representatives of the papers, at the home of his
brother, Lieut.-Col. Andrew Haggard, a Soudan veteran, Sir Rider explained that his mission in behalf of
the Royal Colonial Institute was merely to induce the
Overseas Governments to accord ex-service men of the
Imperial army and navy the same privileges in the
matter of land settlement and employment as they are
givjng the soldiers from their own territories. After
every great war, experience had shown, there was a
tendency for a large efflux of men from the Old Country, and it was obviously desirable, from the patriotic
point of view, to keep these men of our own race within the Empire. Sir Rider's recent trip to the Australian Commonwealth was productive of the most gratifying results in bringing about a modification, in line
with his representations, of policies previously determined on, and there is no doubt that the objects
aimed at will meet with hearty approval and co-operation by all parties in this country.
Neither the Governor-General designate, the Duke
of Devonshire, nor his wife, are strangers to Canada.
The Duke visited Ottawa about twelve or thirteen
years ago, when the Earl of Minto was Governor-General, and was accompanied by the Duchess. They
stayed at Rideau Hall, and, while ir. the city, the
Duchess renewed acquaintance with a number of Ottawa people whom she had known as a girl, in the
period between 1883 and 1888, when her father, the
Marquis of Landsdowne, was Governor-General of
Canada. She was thirteen years of age when her parents came to Ottawa and had become a handsome
young lady when they left. The Duke of Devonshire
also spent several months in Canada during those
years. The Duchess as well as the Duke are said to be
enthusiastically anticipating their approaching sojourn
in Canada, while their family of two sons and five
daughters see illimitable and most pleasurable prospects in their Canadian residence. It is also suggested

soon after the war of the King and Queen's long-felt
desire to revisit Canada. The Duchess is not only Mistress of the Robes, but the Queen's most intimate
It is not a matter of very much importance what
particular category the recent tour of the Premier and
his party through a portion of the Province comes under, but it is amusing, at the least, to note the anxious
efforts of the Ministers to have it understood that it is
"in no sense political." This funny little fiction was
put forward when the jaunt was begun on the Island,
some three weeks ago, and it would appear that they
have not been deterred by the obvious ridiculousness
of the pretense from repeating it all along the line.
"Bowser and his Ministers," says the Daily News of
Prince Rupert, "are very careful to point out at every
stopping place in their northern tour that they are not
electioneering, but are simply trying to find out the
needs os the different districts," on which the News
pertinently comments: "The Bowser outfit is out electioneering, and nothing else, and it is electioneering
at the expense of the public." If any one had any
lingering doubt of that, he would only need to peruse
the outline of a "Bowser standard speech" so obligingly furnished by the paid press bureau that travelled
with the political troupe, and was reproduced in this
paper last week? Premier Bowser apparent'y takes
the people of British Columbia for fools, but his silly
and shallow posing fools nobody, and the joke is really
on him. n\

A report has has been made bv Chief
of Police Bradshaw to the License Commissioners that retail liquor stores in the
city remained open Saturday afternoon
last, and the question of whether they
will be prosecuted under the new half-
holiday law will be left to the Commissioners for decision. In view of a projected test case of a similar nature to be
taken before the Vancouver courts, local
action will probably   be   deferred.
A suggestion that the C.N.R. use the

Johnson Forgery Case.
On twenty-eight charges of forgery, in
connection with the issuance of the same
number of checks, and on the charge of
false pretences, Peter Johnson, of this
city, formerly bookkeeper of the Shull
Lumber Co., situated on the Boundary
road in Burnaby, was committed for trial,
at the preliminary hearing before Magistrate Clute, in the Burnaby l'olice Court,
Wednesday morning. The twenty-eight
checks, which the accused is alleged to
have forged under various names, involved a sum of some 51,733. According
to evidence, accused, after arrest, voluntarily admitted the forgery to the police.
Mr. W. G. McCmarrie acted as crown
prosecutor and Mr. D. Whiteside for the
Royal City Well Represented.
Flight Sub-Lieut. Charles P. Creighton, of the Imperial Naval Air Service,
son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Creighton, of
this city, has already had a taste of the
adventurous and daring work of the war
aviator. He writes from "somewhere in
Prance" as follows: "I have now been
over the lines into the German's territory several times and have been 'strafed' by 'Aichie.' However, he is a very
bad shot, so that there is not much danger. I am very keen to meet a Fokker,
as I have a good pilot, and think that,
being rather a good shot with a machine
gun, we should with any luck bring him
down. I have been on a special job instructing a brigade in 'contact patrol.'

Holding Down the Lid.
The Vancouver School Hoard is not going to be "investigated" if it can help
it. At all costs, the lid must lie clamped
down till after the elections, if possible,
as the Bowser Government has enough
to carry now without being further discredited by the "revelations" that are
seething and bubbling in this witches'
caldron of the devious doings of Vancouver's Hoard of School Trustees for
the past half a do/.en vears.
Authorized by the Vancouver City
Council to carefully examine the contents of the caldron and report his findings, Mr. Justice Murphy opened his
Commission, but not the caldron, on the
date appointed, Monday, July 3rd, only
to announce that he had been served with
a writ of injunction, and to adjourn the
inquiry until Monday next al 11 o'clock,
"unless," added the learned but
eminentlv cautious judge, with a delicious Hibernianism by which he comes
honestly, "we are stopped, when, of
course, we will not go on."
People do sometimes go on after they
have been stoppeil���for instance, our
boys in the trenches���but than they are
not so punctillious as the courts. Meanwhile, the first round in the injunction
hearing was won by the Citv Council,
Wednesday morning, when Mr. Justice
Morrison, after a lengthy hearing and
argument by counsel, took the ground
that investigation was within tlie powers
of the City Council, under section 214 of
the Incorporation Act, which provides
that the City Council can order an investigation before a Supreme Court judge
"ou anything affecting the gooil government of the citv."
It is considered likely that, when the
enquiry opens again, before Mr Justice
Murphy, on Monday, the School Board
members will ignore their subpoenas and
try to get the legal question threshed out
once more, on appeals from the contempt proceedings which would naturally
follow a flouting <>f the subpoenas,

Chief Matters of Interest M. H. O.'s Report on City Milk Supply and Effect
of Saturday Half Holiday on City
The regular weekly meeting of the
City Fathers got down to business Monday night at 8:30 o'clock, with Mayor
Gray in the chair and Aldermen Bryson,
Jardine, Goulet, Dodd, Eastman, and
McAdam in their places, the only absentee being Aid. Johnston.
The programme of business was a very
light one, but two or three subjects that
came up under the "reports" aiid "new
business'' headings were of more than
usual public interest, suggestively at
least���particularly the report of the
htaith Committee in regard to the milk
supply of the city, and the question (if
the new Saturday half holiday, as it incidentally affects the City Market,
brought up by Aid. Goulet.
The following communications were
received aud dealt with:
From the City Solicitors, re Dolphin
damages claim, stating their opinion
that the citv is not liable for any injuries
Mrs. Dolphin may have received on
Hamilton street.    Received and Bled.
From A. W. McI<eod, re reduction of
insurance on city properties. Received
aud filed.
From the City Engineer, with plan of
proposed vault for D. Mercer at Fraser
cemetery, and recommending conditions
and regulations to be imposed if application were approved.
On motion of Aid. Jardine and Goulet,
the communication, with the plan, was
received, and referred to the Parks Committee to report, Aid. Eastman, in some
remarks on the subject, commending the
recommendations of the City Engineer
as to the conditions/ under which the
erection of a vault in a cemetery should
be* allowed.
Aid. Goulet, chairman of the Harbor
Committee, reported that a scow load of
rock, as recommended, had been placed
at the head of the lirst dock unit; also
that the high water iu the river was receding and no further measures were
necessary.    Report adopted.
Aid. McAdam, chairman of the Health
Committee, presented the report of the
Medical Health Officer, dealing chiefly
with his examination of the milk furnished by the various dairies supplying
the city, as follows:
"To the Chairman of the Health Committee:
"Herewith I beg to submit report of
milk examinations for month of June,
1916, and also a report on the small
"Report of 'milk examinations for
month of June, 1916: Our Dairy (certified), butter fat 3.75 per cent., bacteria
10,000; Our Dairy i uncertified), butter
fat5p.c, bacteria 35,000; Booth, butter
fat 4.8 p.c, bacteria 40,000; Brehaut,
butter fat, 4.6 p.c, bacteria 15,000;
Thoinasson, butter fat 3.5 p.c, bacteria
50,000; Mainland Dairy, butter fat4p.c,
bacteria, 45,000; Butters, butter fat 4
p.c, bacteria 35,000; Oxford Dairy, butter fat, 3.2 p.c, .bacteria 40,000; Duncan, butter fat 3.2 p.c, bacteria 40,0110;
Palling, butter fat 4.2 p.c, bacteria 25,-
000; Erickson, butter fat 4 p.c, bacteria
25,000; Bourke, butter fat 4.8 p.c, bacteria 60,000; Schang, butter fat 3.6, bacteria 80,000; Minthorne, butter fat 4.5
p.c, bacteria 85,000; Crescent Dairy;
butter fat 4.8 p.c, bacteria 25.000."
The report of the Medical Health Officer further stated that applications for a
license to sell milk had been submitted
by several small dairies, consisting of
from one to three cows, but that in every
case an inspection of the premises showed that tliey could not comply with the
Milk By-law, which was also the case
with regard to two small dairies already
The M. II. O. also enclosed with his
report a copy of the petition from the
large dairies, complaining that the licensing of the smaller dairies, which did
not have to provide proper buildings,
facilities, etc., was not fair or just to the
large dairies, which did have, at great
expense, to provide these things.
"This opens up," concludes the report
of the M. H. 0., "a big and serious
question which I feel is bevond the scope
of my department to deal with, ami 1
should be glad if the Council would decide what actioii is to be taken."
An examination of the city water, according to the report, showed .^S bacteria in one cubic centimetre ��� quite a
negligible quantity, as was laughingly
suggested in some Aldermanic discussion that followed.
In discussing the report of tin- milk
examination, Aid. Goulet pointed out
that some bacteria were perfectly harmless, and.he suggested that Dr. Wilson
might go into the question ol harmless
bacteria and those which might carry
Ou motion, the report was referred lo
the M. II. o ami the Building Inspector
to report as to what changes would
be necessary in the smaller dairies to
comply with the Milk By-law.
Aid. Dodd, who, witli Aid. Johnston,
had been appointed as a special commit-
teee on the Shops Regulation By-law to
report with regard to barber shops,
asked for further time, which was
Aid. Dodd, chairman ol the Water
Committee, reported again on the alleged illicit use of water by the B.C. E. K.,
that the committee had gone into the
matter fully and had advised the B.CE.
R. that the Council could not comply
with the company's request to place a
meter on the connection that had been
illegally made with the city's lire service. The letter had been sent on Friday, and no reply received since.
After some discussion, the Water Committee was finally, on motion, authorized
to cut off the free lire service water, as
per notice given some time ago, if no
reply were received on Tuesday.
Now  Business.
Aid. Jardine moved, seconded by Aid.
Dodd, that the iron work of Dulu Island
bridge be painted; that tlie City Engineer prepare specifications and that
tenders be asked for the work.    Carried
Aid. Dodd brought up the question of
the necessity of a guide light for the
small boat landing at the foot of Eighth
Aid. Goulet pointed out that such a
light could not be installed without an
arrangement with the Marine Department. It was a good idea, however, and
the Council should authorize the Electric
Eight Committee to act in the matter,
which, on motion, was done.
While on harbor matters, Aid. Goulet
referred to the obstruction of a portion
of the water front by a tow of logs tied
up to a dolphin on the city wharf.
Aid. Br) son said he had ascertained
that the logs belonged to the B. C. Box
Factory, and he was satisfied that, if the
management knew the boom was causing
trouble, it would be removed.
On motion of Aid. Jardine and Goulet,
the matter was referred to the Harbor
Committee, to act.
Aid. Bryson. chairman of the Finance
Committee, said the Treasurer had requested assistance���a smart boy for a
month or two���in connection with the
tax sale, and he suggested that the
Treasurer be authorized to obtain the
necessary help, whicli was granted, on
Aid. Goulet called attention to an incidental effect upon the City Market of the
new Saturday half holiday which went
into force this month. It had been demonstrated that it was going to interfere
prejudicially with the fresh meat and
poultry wholesale trade on the market,
if the present Friday market day was
maintained, as it was found that, with
the stores closiig at Saturday noon, there
was not time to dispose by retail of meat
and poultry bought the previous day on
the market. On the other hand, if we
changed the market day to Thursday, he
was afraid it might not suit the general
Mayor Gray suggested that it ought to
be ascertained from the Market Clerk
how the proposed change would suit the
On motion of Aid. Goulet and McAdam,
the question was referred to a committee
of the whole Council to report.
Scammell, while referring to vocational
training even for the blind, was in correction of a grossly exaggerated story
that had been widespread in this country,
he said, to the effect that there were no
less than 5,000 blinded Canadian soldiers. The exact number was just
eleven, of whom four were back in Canada, and one of these, suffering from
shell shock, would recover. The remaining seven were in St. Dunstan's Institute, London, Eng., undergoing training. In this same Institute were most
of the blinded soldiers of the Empire in
this war, who numbered between two
aud three hundred all told.
How Canada is Providing for Her Returned Soldiers of All Conditions-
No One Will be Overlooked.
It had been expected that Sir Rider
Haggard, who was in Vancouver this
week in connection with his Empire-wide
mission for having all British soldiers
who may wish to emigrate after the war
retained within the Empire, would meet
the Mayor, Aldermen, officials of the
Board of Trade, and other leading citizens, at the City Hall, at 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. Owing to other engagements, the distinguished novelist and
publicist found it impossible to get over,
but the assembled civic and other representative citizens had a visit instead
from Mr. E. H. Scammell, Ottawa, secretary of the Canadian Military Hospitals
Commission, who, with Mr. J.,S. Dennis, representative of the C. P. R. in its
scheme for the settlement of returned
soldiers after' the war, recently arrived
from the East, and are discussing with
Sir Rider Haggard the whole question of
the returned soldier problem.
In a quiet address or talk, Mr. Scammell outlined in a lucid and interesting
way the various projects and activities
having in view the solution of this great
problem, which included, not only the
settlement of returned soldiers, Canadian
or British, on land, under proper conditions, but obtaining suitable employment of all kinds, looking after the disabled and partially disabled, furnishing
artificial limbs where required, and providing vocational training to fit otherwise unqualified or partly disabled men
to become self supporting and productive members of the community.
The C. 1'. R , it was mentioned by
the way, had an admirable scheme for
settlement of from 2,000 to 3,000 families
ou its lands. As to the Dominion Government land settlement plans, these are
tentative as yet, and would be elaborated
doubtless in connection with the different provinces. One thing was certain,
Mr. Scammell remarked significantly, no
suggestion would be entertained for putting a returned soldier on 160 acres of
Unimproved land and leaving him to
sink or swim. The Australian Commonwealth, Mr. Scammell mentioned, while
on this phase of the question, had appropriated 5100,000,000 for a laud settlement scheme, and lie intimated Canada could and probably would under
take a similiar patriotic and reproductive
work on an even larger scale. The recent
ly revised war pensions for death or disability provided by the Canadian Government, and which would Ik retroactive,
wire the most generous iu the world.
Regarding the work of the Military
Hospitals Commission, said Mr. Scammell, they had recently arranged to organize a casualty command, which would
lake over all returned invalided soldiers
immediately tbey set foot in Canada
aud also invalids left behind by battalions proceeding overseas Tliis command would In- divided into units and
would lake care of the entire administration, including the medical and pay
end, as well as matters of discipline.
They bad at present about 700 in convalescent hospitals and homes and about
1,00(1 as patients, with 250 in sanitariums, so that at present there were about
2,000 men to deal with, and tliey were
coming iu at the rate of about 150 to 200
a week. So far, there had been no difficult) in placing al! returned men who
were capable of going to work. The
policy of the Commission, added Mr.
Scammell, was to have the accommodation and facilities well ahead of the requirements, so that no one would be
overlooked, and, no matter how many
men there were to be taken care of, or
what their condition, they would all be
looked after.
In answer to questions, Mr. Scammell
said the Dominion Government was fur-"
uishing the money for all this work, it
was not asking public subscriptions, but
some $130,000 had so far been voluntarily subscribed, whicli wus retained as
a special fund for future use.

Produce More and Save More
The Empire needs food. If you are not in the fighting line you may be in the producing line. Labour
is limited���all the more reason to do more than ever
before. Grow food for the men who are fighting for you. The Allies need all the food that
you can produce. Every little helps. You are responsible for your own work. If you
cannot produce at much as you would like, produce all you can. Work with the right
spirit. Put fighting energy into your effort and produce now when it counts. The more
you produce the more you can save.   Producing and saving are war-service.
Make Your Labour Efficient
In war-time do not waste .time and energy on unimportant and unprofitable work. Economize labour.
Put off unproductive work till after the war, and, if
possible, help in producing something needed now. Let us not waste labour. Canada
needs it all. If possible help to feed the Allies. Make your backyard a productive garden.
Cultivate it with a will.    Make your labour count for as much as possible.
Do Not Waste Materials
There should be no waste in war-time. Canada could
pay the annual interest on her war expenditure out
of what we waste on our farms, in our factories, in
our homes. Every pound of food saved from waste is as good as a pound of increased
production. The way for a nation to save is for every individual to save. France is strong
to-day because of thrift in time of peace. The men and women of Great Britain are not
only " doing " but are learning to " do without."
Spend Your Money Wisely
finance the war,
better investment.
Practise economy in the home by eliminating luxuries.    Wasting our dollars here weakens our strength
at the Front.     Your savings   will help Canada to
Save your money for the next Dominion War issue.   There can be no
