E. Strickland returns  from Vernon this week.  Miss Race will return  derby from England in  weeks.  Turn out, everybody, to the  Celebration Committee meeting,  in the city office tomorrow night.  A son was born to Mr. and  Mrs. W. Pilking'ton, of Enderby,  at the Vernon hospital on April  6th.  Walter' Robinson has added a  McCormick biscuit cabinet to his  store fixtures, and is building a  warehouse in the rear of his  store.  Mr. Peter Greyell has been ap-  . pointed City Poundkeeper.   As  announced in our last ..issue, the,  pound by-law will be strictly enforced.

This is a dissertation, a disqui  ������������������������������������������������������ appropriately placed.  Miss Edith Johnston was  thrown from her, horse last Friday and received injuries that  have confined her to her bed. It  will be good news to all to learn  that she is out of danger from  serious complications as a result  of the severe concussion.  A rush of work in the job de-  . partment of the Walker Press,  has prevented our adding the usual two pages to accommodate  the increase in the demand on  our advertising space. Next  week we will make up for shortcomings, both to advertisers and  readers.  At the special meeting of the  City Council last Wednesday evening, the street improvement bylaw passed its second reading;  100 shade trees were ordered  from M. J. Henry for planting  on the City Recreation Ground;  extensive improvements were  '��������������������������� _ecided .upon and ordered on the  Recreation Ground; Peter Greyell  was appointed poundkeeper, and  it was determined to rigidly enforce the pound by-law.  The City is doing splendid  work on the Recreation' Ground.  An avenue of shade trees is to be  planted down the sides and scattered as a grove in the western  end beyond the playing limits.  An elbow railing will be built  from the entrance gate to the  grand stand.   The diamond will  completing of arrangements for  the celebration was left to the  next meeting, which will be held  tomorrow, (Friday) evening at  the city office. The finance committee, wili . report at that time  the amount of funds available.  Mr. Worthington, on behalf of  the band, reported that the Armstrong band haa expressed its  readiness to. join with the Enderby band in providing music on  the 24th if the ..Enderby band  would, reciprocate on July 1st.  The proposition was heartily  endorsed, but final action was  left over until it could be dealt  with by the proper committee.  The second edition of the Mara |  booklet leaves the. Walker.' Press  this "week for, Mr; Chas. W; Little  of Mara. Returns from the first  edition have far exceeded Mr.  Little's expectations. " Writing  us under date of the 14th, Mr!  Little says:, "I am pleased to be  able to report progress the past  few days. Transfers of four  blocks have gone through. Mr.  J. N. -Hughes bought the fine  farm of Geo. E: Little, Mr. S. D.  Hine bought three acres with  house and orchard at the station,  from Mr. W. Witala, and is getting things ready to put up a  store ,and boarding house at once.  Mr. C. E. Davidson bought 65  acres of Mr. J. Moser's pretty  place at the head of the lake;  and Geo. E. Little bought 5 acres  from H. M. Law, and will'build  a home on the, river bank-.'.' _  E E K L  ,"In order, o be poor iii. the Okanagan, you have to waste an awful lot of -Time and Money."/  >>syM  ������������������  t , sition^inj^scantr^or^words-rto^that  ^-^ effect. Enderby cows furnish : the  wh(e)y. Enderby has a delightfully intelligent lot of cows.. Going or coming, they  are always ruminating, and of a garderiis-  tic tendency. Enderby has cows that can  open gates with the machinery of one end  while batting flies with the machinery of  the other end, and never lose a Fletcher-  ization in the process. We have cows that  can do everything the ordinary newspaperman can do, except chew tobacco, spit and  mind the baby. But they can't read the  newspapers. Would to gawd they could.  They can't read the local paper, and do not  know all the direful things the City Council is threatening them with. And so they  just ruminate around, delightfully ignorant  of all the bad things said about them.  The other day���������������������������it was Monday���������������������������blue  Monday at that���������������������������and early in the morning  ���������������������������one of these cows with a penchant for  breakfast, mosied into a flower garden a!nd.  did the cake-walk up- and down a bed of)  asters; two-stepped the cannas and daffodils and made a breakfast off of narcissus  buds, all of which a young lady had tenderly cared for from the going of the snow  ���������������������������a Spring's labor, and the result of weeks'  of patient, expectant watching blasted in a  few minutes���������������������������and for what? ,....'  To the cow and people with cow ideas  this means nothing. It is another flowerbed gone, that is all. To the lover of the  beautiful, it means another sacrifice upon  the altar of sordid, wretched meanness.  We have;heard a great'deal about.theidifficulty ofenforcing a pound by-law".n. _m  open range.country, ail of which is argument from the selfish end. . We are told  that it works a hardship on the Indians,;.6  impound their stock. The Indians have  had 6,000 acres of the ^est land tied up, in  the Enderby reserve for half a century. If  in this'time.they-have not cleared enough  land to afford pasture for their stock, whose  fault is it? It is true, -in, an open range  country stockmen have a free" hand, but  :onlyJnsofar_a_sJtjippii^  communities. The citizen's rights in a  community like this demand that he compels the enforcement of the laws under  which the city is or should be governed.  When a man buys or rents, property in a  town where certain laws are on the books  which mean the protection of himself and  property, he expects those, laws,to be enforced. That is what he pays his taxes for.  It is not the privilege or the mayor and  council to say whether the laws shall be enforced or not. They are not doing their  duty unless they do enforce them. We are  well aware that this position is contrary to  the custom that has prevailed here, but  that does not mean that the practices of  the past have been right. They have led  to the habitual side-stepping of all of our  by-laws, until to-day the official body has  to give notice that it intends to enforce  this or that by-law in the future. And the  peoplejvho have been ��������������������������� in the habit of sidestepping this or|that by-law pay no more  attention to thefhdtice than the cows do.  However, the. City Council mean business this time, and public opinion is back  of them. The pound by-law is going to be  enforced. If you own one of the intelligent  critters keep her off the streets. There  must not be any half measure about it. If  the law is to be made effective it must be  rigidly enforced, not for one day or one  week, but all the time, and against all  people alike.  -At the Board of Trade meeting  last Friday evening, two appli-"  cations for membership were accepted, Mr. V.  C.  Brimacombe  and Mr.  F. V.  Moffet jr.   Mr.  W. Allan Dobson  introduced, a  resolution setting forth the need  of a  more equitable ��������������������������� system of ,  taxation in municipalities.     The  advertising committee' reported  the urgent need of a booklet to .  be used in the publicity work now  being carried on by the Board  and after debated H. W. Harvey  introduced  a resolution asking  the advertising committee and  the  executive   officers- of-the  Board to approach the City Coun-^  cil for. an appropriation of. $400^  to carry on the publicity1 work.

Y. Sun.)  There was joy among tho responsible officers of the Fire Department  ;t few days afro when word csinto from  Albntrv that hereafter bigger" men  must be found for appointment fo the  ui-ifonncd force. The State Civil Service Commission decreed that no mini  under 5 feci 8 inches or lighter than  J-10 pounds would bo eligible, thus  sickling an inch to the required stature and five i >ou rids to the weight.  Chief George Far roll, master of lhe  school o_ instruction and philosopher  in general of tho department, expressed tho common judgment of the service when sonic one asked him if'a  good little man wasn't sill right.'  "Yes," lie answered, _*' u good little  man is all right, but a good big man  is just so much better.'  Chic? Parrel 1 ought lo know. He  has trained more than half of the department, as it exists to-day and has  studied them man by man.  It is the judgment of smother chief  si-Mir twenty-eight years oi experience  in fire lighting that, other things being equal, efficiency increases with  height and wcicrht tip to about 5 feet  J0_.  "After that," so id he, 'There- is too  much of them above the waistline,  .and they are likely to break amicl-  shi [>:-."  The- action of the State Civil Service Commission is a tardy response  1o complaints which have been, growing more and more insistent for the  last five years. Time and sign in Chief  Crokcr has protested against the physical unfitness of many oi tlto men  who have rot by Lhe civil service c._-  ainintr.-r nnd  the  surgeons.  Lately the pension list lms begun  to .give emphasis to Chief Choker's  arguments, L-ouk over lite roll and  you will find mi increasing number  of comparatively young men retired  on about $-100 a year for disabilities  not'incurred in the line of duty. That  means usually .ml si narrow chested  man has collapsed under Ihe strain  of ordinary fire lighting and has been  laid on the shelf with one-third pay  instead of the half pay that i?_ the  lawful due of every fireman who retires after twenty- years or more, of  service.  Tlie wear and tear on a fireman is  terrific. Take the single item of lost  iind broken sleep. -A continuous  night.':, rest is a thins almost unknown.. The arrangement of 1 ho wire  circuits "is1 .liei. that" the gong will  ring many times wlie'1 some of the  companies which it-awakens.do not  respond to the alarm. Unless tho  new recruit can learn to take his sleep  in instalments he is doomed to failure.  Then iherc arc long days and nights  of battle when bedtime and mealtime  never come at all, times when the  water freezes' over rubber coats and  boots and helmets till their wearers  arc clad in garment? of ice, times  when, for hour? together men must  breathe smoke and gas till throat and  king;; "and stomach are inflamed and  their heads feel as if they wore clamped in jael .crews. iVo wonder then  that the man of frail timber weakens.  No wonder that Crokcr keeps calling  for stout ribs' and strong limbs as  "well af_ brave hearts.

Firemen regard this recent action of  the State. Civil Service Commission as  ;i ona. riskm to professional opinion, but  it i-. only a partial concession. 1 _ot_a-  sh .'.al opinion lias demanded a great den I  more, and so far li:i.-> demanded in vain.  The 1'i.ieors of the department are quite  eortaitt that tbe whole system of exam-  inim.' men both for admission to the  rank- and for promotion fo the higher  irvades could be improved along practical  lines.  Chief Crok-.r bad said so in all his  annual reports n.iid in many oilier appropriate ways. Hugh 'Homier, chief and  eomitT.inner, the line of the department, was of the same opinion. This is  ("hi"!' Crokor's latest communication on  tlie subject:  "I   would 'recommend   a    conference  between the fire eoninii s.ioiici\ chief of  ' department  and  officials  of  the mnni-  eipal Civil Service Commission  with si  view to changing the method of examination for-appointment iu the uniformed force and,promotion to higher grades,  ns under the present system of promo-'  tion  men who by  reason  of experience  in  the department-.'ire particularly -well  fitted by udvanwiiieirt ������������������. otttclas 8������������������i by  the younger men. with whom they are  unable siireessfully in compete -n examinations !l5 ll1- present conducted, and  us a result of which condition the department is prevented from promoting  members who would make first class  officers."  The present system works loo much in  favor of the men who an: merely handy  wilh pen and ink���������������������������t hat's what Crokcr  thinks, and his officers are mostly in  accord with him.       ������������������  "before the Civil Service Commission  took entire charge of examinations the  candidate for promotion bud io pass  inusler before a board of chief officers,  ft, was an oral examination, and was  Flrictly. practical. What would he do in  this or that emergency? What in his  judgment was the best, means of working out some difficult, problem? Suppose a fire under certain conditions', "how  would he dispose of his forces in fighting  il. and would he send iu a������������������second or a  third alarm? This was tho kind of  test the man had to-inset; and it was  more than a matter of good common  school education. It was technical and  expert, and the standard set was-professionally severe.  It is something like that the firemen  are asking now���������������������������uob an absolute return  to the old system, but a combination of  the good features of both old and new.  They think too that the uniformed  force should have something to say  about its own discipline. They ' want  trial boards similar to the courtsmartial  of the army and navy; that is, the men  of gocd behavior do, while the black  sheep would rather go on being tried  by the Commissioner or his deputy.  The Fire Department -has kept itself  fairly free from the blight of politics,  iis compared, for instance, with the Police Department., but politics does creep  into the trial room, and by the same  token discipline creeps out. The chiefs  and captains think that this will be true  sis long as politicians sit iu judgment.  ���������������������������A man is under charges, lot us say, of  drunkenness or tardiness or disrespect  to an officer. ITis first move if hc is  guilty is to lay. the case before his district leader.  ^ The district leader is perfectly willing  to intercede with Ike Commissioner,  who.very likely is a district leader himself and likelv to be asking considera-  tion of the same kiud iu some other department. So they lay their heads together and the little arrangriicut" is  easily effected, and. the drunkard or the  insubordinate, gets off with-a reprimand  or a small fine wWere he deserves, to be  dismissed. Why, these arc the easiest  favors a politician can grant. They confer obligations and they cost nothing���������������������������  except the efficiency of the department.  That, briefly, is the argument, of  Chief Crokcr and his associates, who  for years have pleaded for trial boards.  Let us be judge and jury, they say, and  it will be :i pretty clever rascal who will  get away from us, wlio know all the  tricks of tlie trade. They contend too  that firemen are better judges of the  facts at i&Hiic than even the most unprejudiced and unselfish laymen, faeis  which only men of actual experience  can appreciate.  The scheme does not contemplate " a  trial board composed for long periods of  the same officers. Politics might weave  its web abouL such a court too. The  members would change so frequently  that a culprit would never know who  his-judges���������������������������were-to��������������������������� hc.  A  WHITE  HOUSE  LAD.

Laborers  for  tho  Sugar  and     Rubber  Plantations   Seek   Quick   Wealth.  News comes from Tokio that the restless workers of the Emperor's domain  have discovered a" ncw'oiitlet fronf overcrowded Japan, this time in Peru. The  Meiji .lioki.min CJoshi Kaisha, which is  nothing but an emigration company,  despite iti. name, has sent 800 laborers  to Peru within the last .six months and  i.s now canvassing for 500 more.  A Japanese in Peru must be a new  spectacle. The Chinese have been there  for years, but the eastward tide of Jap-  anc-ic to .America had not found anything to attract numbers to the South  American republics. Labor hi so cheap  there that "it hardly appears possible  that any number of Japanese oould be  found to compete with the half'breed  peon of the Andean country.  The news from Japanese sources has it  that the laborers bound for Peru are going lo work on sugar plantations and iu  the rubber forests. Those on the plantations are promised GO cents a day; the  laborer::, among the rubber trees will received ������������������1.25. The emigration company  holds out the hire that living expenses  in Peru will amount to only ������������������<!��������������������������� a month.  ]f the Japanese work diligently and live  economically they will be able to save  about ������������������10.* a month against the time  when they resire to return to the home  land and be little millionaires among  their former associates.  Just one stumbling block has the  Tokio emigration company found in its  path. The Japanese of the coolie class  1 _lieve that all North Americans arc  barbarians who will stone them and  bully them on slight provocation;' they  want to know if the South Americans  are not ainu, or savages. The company  has had to include some reassuring statements regarding the peaceful habits and  general lovablcncss of the Peruvians in  its prospectus to offset the cc.lic distrust,  BABY'S OWN TABLETS  Will CURE YOUR BABY  li your liltl.i ones are subject to colic,  indige-.tion. constipation, wort us. .simple  fevers, or the other minor ailments of  ehildboood. give, them I'.aby .

The domestic exports of the United  Kingdoms in 1005 were slightly over  thirty-eight dollars per head, while  the expenditure and inve _mcnt for  sport is'about ten dollars per head,  or a little, more than one-fourth as  much. Excluding troops and expenditure on ti .ops serving outside the United Kingdom, England only spent the  paltry sum of .75.000,000 on her army  in 1907, and the cost 01 her naval armament in the same year was only  $107,500,000, both together considerably  less than was spent for sport. The capital value of the sporting rents advertised by a single firm of land agents  one season not long ago, reckoning the  letting value at four nor cent., amounted lo S'15,750,000. The licenses to kill  game bring in a revenue to the State  of something over $925,000 per -annum.

Public Improvement By-Law  LOAN By-law No. 5, which  is now before the property owners to be voted upon, is the first money by-law  to be submitted looking to  the borrowing of money for  the purpose of adding something to the good name and  good appearance of Enderby  that does not promise to be  a direct revenue producer.  However, it is conceded by  all having the unselfish interest of the town at heart,  that we must improve our  streets and sidewalks, open  roadways and do away with  the decidedly unsatisfactory  system  of   gravelling   the  street  crossings,   and   get  down to something permanent, if Enderby is to become  the important point it is destined to be.   The only objection we have heard raised  against the by-law is that it  does  not ask  for  enough.  Perhaps this objection is justified.   When Aid. Peel first  proposed the public improvement scheme in the Council,  he was disappointed at the  manner in which it was received and, remembering the  old saw about a half loaf,  asked for it.  But we believe  we voice  the sentiment of  nine-tenths of our property  owners and citizens when we  say the by-law should ask for  $5000.       Nevertheless   the  work is in the right direction  and the by-law will no doubt  carry.   In some places $2,500  would not be a drop in the  bucket of  the  cost of the  work it is proposed  to do,  but here where grading is so  easily done,  the sum asked  for should accomplish much.  "Music Hath1 Charms'  ������������������  THE proposition submitted  by Mrf Worthington on  Behalf (Sfllie^Cit^BIMrat  the public meeting Monday  night, by which the band of  Armstrong and the band of  Enderby will join in lending  their aid in making the 24th  of May and the 1st of July  celebrations a combined success, will receive the hearty  support of the citizens of  Enderby. It may mean that  our 24th of May music will  cost us a little more than  usual���������������������������probably $150, as Mr.  Evans suggested-���������������������������but it is  worth ten times that amount  to either town to increase the  strength of the ties of friendship that bind these towns  so closely together. The Enderby band is putting up  splendid music. The same  is said of the Armstrong  band. " Let us boost the combination. The bands deserve the strongest encouragement.  The Progressive Spirit  THE Enderby correspondent of the Vernon News  pays this well-deserved com-  uli ment:  j.  Andrew Fulton has purchased  a horse this week to better handle his increasing business. The  young men that are running business in town are showing the  older ones how business should  be done. The older ones have  got to copy or they will soon be  out of the race..  Just where this correspondent would draw the line  we do not know and would  not stop to enquire, as ALL  of our merchants seem to be  pretty much up to the mark  if we are to judge from the  advertising columns of The  Enderby Press. But the  point the .correspondent is  endeavoring to make is a  good one. Our business people have climbed out of the  sump of doubt and taken on  an aggressiveness that makes  business.

"T want to remind the public of _\Io .-  I real of certain weighty words uttered  by Mr. .iu .ice Tnschcreau on the subject of tolerated immorality, nt the  conclusion of an investigation into  charges made agaiust certain members  of tlie police force in February, 1005,"  fnicl Mr. Recorder Weir, jeslcrday, during the trial of the keeper of a disorderly house on St. Lawrence street.  Montreal is a great city and still  with in tho limits of control. If  we want to make it a city that Ave can  be proud of ve, must be more strict as  to the deportment of the rising generation. -We do not want our streets to  be dangerous to walk in, where our sons  will be tempted aud our daughters insulted. Some people claim that all this  is in the nature of things. The Chief  Justice did not think so, and neither do  J think so, The men who really know  what vice involves are the priest, the  minister and the recorder. We receive  .ad revelations from these sufferers  that make it impossible for ns to accept the sophistries propounded by  regnlationists. I am not surprised that  there is such a long list of burglaries to  the credit of Montreal criminals. It is  impossible to choose just what evils wc  will suppress and what we will tolerate.  Crimes of all kinds jire so linked together that, if we have drunkenness and  gambling and ' prostitution, we must  have robberies aud murders and wrecked  homes and ruined lives.-  "It will be usoles for us to increase  the police force unless we try to stop  up the source of the evils that are  rampant," continued the judge. Theye  arc other pests in Montreal more  serious than tuberculosis ,and they must  be suppressed. I do not admit that they  are necessary evils. They are a scandalous shame to the community: But  wc have put our hands to the plough bixd  will not stop till our work is done. Wc  will call in all the moral agencies of the  city to assist us. Let the' women join  the .crusade; they can do much to stem  (he tide. A prostitute is the most  mournful spectacle the world has ever  seen."  These remarks, which followed the  evidence of the Rev. Arthur French in  the case before the court, led up . o the  leading of .extracts from the deliverance of Chief Justice Sir Henri T. Tnschcreau, whose words of wisdom,' lie declared, were worth more than gold.  INTEMPERANCE AND  THE SOCIAL EVIL.  .,  Mr._ Justice Taschcrcau opened his  general remarks with the following  words: "Tho human body is-a sacred  trust committed l^ the soul -by the  Creator; gifted with an-., admirable organism, it has the most astonishing physical powers as well as a delicate construction, such as can hardly be con  ceived; and its functions, which, after  all, arc those of the soul that gives it  life and movement, should be nothing  but the result of the will and aspirations of tha>" soul, made in the image  of the Almighty. But the soul, given  its freedom comes under different influences; evil suggestions due to heredity or temperament", or to the vices of  corrupt environment, or bad education,  and the body obeying and being polluted iu its turn, loses the beauty,  purity and vigor given it by its divine  Maker.  ���������������������������'Among the pbgucs of humanity th-.l  have polluted the body after soiling the  ������������������_B\il7thfriria_i^=tw_^:io_tr=teri,iblefwhosc^  unet-: .ing assaults commenced at the  very beginning of the world, and whose  rnv*ag.8 have dishonored and decimated  Tlie.se  two  are  drunken-  bec Legislature could not entrust the  corporation of Montreal with any other  niis-sion than that oi doing towards those  house-., the oniy thing possible under 'che  iaws of this country, that is, lo suppress  them.  "Docs that mean that if the City Council has not thought proper to pass a special by-law, providing a specilic method  of securing 'their suppression, it will  thereby be justified in ignoring the law  and tolerating whux is intolerable under  the Criminal  Code?  "Who would dare hold such a. view?  '"Such a by-law could iiavc been passed.  It would, no doubt, have settled, to advantage, certain details of procedure. It  has not been passed, but 'die city remains none the less obliged to suppress  the evil, for suppression is mentioned in  the general law, and tolerance is thorn  forbidd .1.  "Yet, if such a by-law could have been  passed it was not necessary, for the city  already had, and still has, all possible  power, and is provided with all the ma-,_  chinery required to suppress such houses,  it doe's suppress 'them when it wishes. It  chooses its lime;'it indicates to its officials the special house to be raided; arrests follow, and the Recorder condemns.  ''What is possible, even easy, in special cases will be no more difficult to accomplish iii the case of'a general raid ,  and n complete cleansing. All the con-'  stables admitted this in the course of  the recent investigation. Only there is  some hesitation in the face of the duty  of total suppression in the apprehension  of clandestine prostitution. Such secret  prostitution mo shall never be able to  cause to cease. But you will increase it  by allowing ihe scandal of public prostitution which perverts youth, leads to all  kinds.of excesses, defiles the soul and  corrupts the body, when jt docs not destroy it prematurely. Secret prostitution  will do its work anyhow, but the evil  will always be in exact proportion to tii-j  immorality of the people.  HIS LORDSHIP  SUGGESTS REFORMS.  The learned judge, procceeding to suggest certain reforms, .said: Tiio system  lollowcd, so far, in"Montreal in the proceedings taken against; the keepers of  houses' of ill-iepute; the girls living in  tiieir' dens and the unfortunate clients  found therein, strikes-me as deplorable.  In the first place', tho police officers prepare their cases only on the complaint  of neighbors, or-when, there arises such  flagrant; scandal that;the action of the  authorities, becomes'Unavoidable. This  is'an entirely too linii.ed circle of operations. There are- neighbors in certain streets who will never complain.  This was shown, during the recent investigation that the police are well  aware of a hundred and filly or two  hundred houses of disorder, or prostitution, or similar- rendezvous, .existing in  Montreal." As soon a.'lsuch knowledge  is acquired and the necessary proof is  v"ilhin the vcach of the'city the obligation to act is created,-and they fail to  do their duty of the action is not taken.  "Certain well-known fiouses have never been troubled. A list shown to me  during the investigation is proof of this.  Why have these houses^ not been raided? Since it Is admitted that they are  well known, since they were placed on a  list that was shown to the"court, it  was the city's duty, to'bring them before  tiie Recorder. ' -''  ".It will be slated, perhaps, that those  homes have been better .kept than others against which proceedings have been.  .taken���������������������������that _there__wei__.no _coinpIaints_  the   nations.  iiC'.-������������������-s  and  prostitution:   almost  inseparable  companions;  a  hideous pair,  challenging divinity, defying civilization, re  belling against  all law   and  oftentimes  controlling the destiny of nation*.  ���������������������������'Christianity was "well calculated to  -cnis'li the. ��������������������������� monsters, but lhe purity of  il.s dictrine. while attract ing and winning the mass:.. und the higher classes,  and* tbe beauty of its teachings, while  inspiring -government's with the wisest  and wont vigorous measures, could ncwr  in the midilU", nor yet in modern, time.,  prevent int. inperan.'. and especially  prostitution, from invading the large  i-entivs. spreading and expanding therein, too often under the eyes of power-  h'������������������-. iMilhoritie .''  The report deserib.s������������������ various method?  flv.ii have been adopted for dealing with  lhe 'social evil, mentioning especially the  regulation and tolerance of vice. The.  learned judge, after giving a summary of  both systems as adopted in different  countries, comes to the. conclusion ihat  both have failed to reach the end aimed  at.  His Lordship, after quoting the various Canadian laws governing the matter,  remarks: "It is, then, quite certain that  in Canada .(he theories of official regulation nnd administrative iolernnae which  may be discussed, and even admitted in  Cither countries, are positively discountenanced by our legislation; are, so to  &pc������������������fc, placed under the ban by our" law  and can be admitted only by the enemies of the law itself in theiT efforts to  have, it amended. So l'.ng as 'that law  remains what, it is, the provincial, civic  and. municipal authorities have only to  submit lo it and apply it J:i all respects.  CITY OBLIGED TO *  SUPPRESS VICE.  "The cty of Montreal is not exempt  from that obligation. Tt-.c Quebec Legislature in the last charter given.this great  city accorded the council the power, and,  so fc. speak, laid upon It the obligation  to suppress houses of ill-fame and disorder-within its' liinite���������������������������yes, to "suppress."  and nothing less.   The fact is, the Que-  amino scandal; that is to say, no noise  "Hut. is not the house of prostitution,  or rendezvous, well-known as such, a  scandal in itself? . Is it less dangerous  becau-. obliging neighbors consent to  tolerate, '-it, or because the keeper is  smart enough or prudent enough to prevent noise or boisterous scandal?  ''There i*. then, no such distinction to  be made. Suppression in order to be  efficient must be general and without  evjeptions in every"ca������������������c where this can  be carried out. Naturally, in cases of  doubt, and in the absence of positive  proof proceedings must be avoided.  A   .Ol'.CE.  OK  REVKXL. .  "Another abt .e is the loo frequent  condemnation of the keepers of filch  houses, for (he most part habitual offenders, to a, .ine instead of imprisonment.  "An ex-chief of police, candidly admitted that such a, system had the advantage   of Fiipplying   the  city  with   sure,  periodical revenue.    Remember. 1" .-.peak  of what T know, nnci I" rela-te facts proven and admitted in open court.  .''It.   strikes me. thai such'a state  of  ' thing" needs no comment.  j     "Did the authorities ever consider the  infamy of such ji system?  "Can the city of Montreal lend itself  to such a calculation and rely on such  .. source of revenue?  "Can this city authorize toleration,  for a money consideration, payable periodically, after regular arrests for public  prostitution?  "Can Montreal thus license vice 'and  infamy (for that is what it docs) upon  the payment of a fee?  "I denounce that abuse with all mv  powers. I would be less severe on the  girls and I would make a distinction  between incorrigible habitues and those  who are only on the threshold of shame  and may be redeemed.  "Discretionary punishment for the ordinary prostitute and tlie efficient closing of the houses in which they lived  would complete the work of cleaning  them out. Thus policy of war without  mercy, of energetic repression, and complete suppression, once adopted, it would  become the duly of the police and spc-  ������������������sag5'  3B__>i3M~S  saw  .***.  I Common Sense On The Ceiling Question  ??mw$&&  People used  to think  metal ceilings were a  sort of'mining camp  makeshift���������������������������  something  that would  do after a  fashion  when y o u  couldn't get a real ceiling. And  they were not far wrong, then.  But that was long years 'ago���������������������������  before even I got  into the metal ceiling business. Metal  ceilings liave  changed since then  ���������������������������and opinions.  People      know-  nowadays, that the  right sort of metal  ceilings    are    fine  enough    for     any  building that can't use marble  ceilings.   I know a few buildings even, that could have marble  and  do  have  Pedlar Ait  j. Steel Ceilings. Like to send you  pictures of such buildings.  And Pedlar ceilings are not  only fine enough, in point of  looks, for any building���������������������������they  are good enough in all that  makes a ceiling good.

You will even then have a sufficient  number of applicants to take ail the  licen.scs and the city will lose none ol"  ii������������������ revenue."  In his concluding remarks the learned  Judge referred as follows to the evidence given during the investigation by  two local clergymen: "I thank the religious authorities of the city, represented at the investigation by tlie He v.
