Retuaning,thecorrespondent noted  a great line formed outside the Theatre Francais, awiting an opportunity  to buy reserved seats at tonight's  performance at $3 a seat. By a  strange coincidence, the play on the  boards was a hitherto unproduced  comedy by Victor Hugo entitled,  "Shall They Eat?"  I GRANBY MAY REMAIN  IDLE AT ANYOX  _.-..��������� Paris,   March   8.���������The    French  government's offensive against the  high cost of living started this morn  ing, when nine barracks for the sale  of fodtistuffs direct from the government to the consumer were opened.  The barracks   are situated on the  "most congested and populous quarters   of the city.    Outside of them  long lines  of women, hatless, with  disordered hair, and blue from cold,  awaited patiently, their turn to be  served.  The crowds werejsept cheerful by  the sight of great bills on the walls  of the barracks reading: V'Rtce 11  cents a pound, beans 13, lard 50,  ham 50, shoulders 50, fat backs 50,  shoulders, boneless, 60."  At the barracks in the 11th ward  1500 persons had been served up to  noon, and the inspector expected  that as many more would be served  in the afternoon.  The people everywhere were neglecting vegetables and. asking for  fats, of which they at once took the  full quota allowed���������two pounds.  Mrs.   Schmidt,   manager of  the  barracks, asked the Associated Press  correspondent to translate the marks  on   cases   from  the United States,  and she led the correspondent  to a  s oreroom where bags of beans, stenciled   "New  York," were piled beside   huge   sacks   of   lard   marked  "Chicago." She pointed to a case on  which  there  was' conspicuous red  lettering, and asked:  "What kind of goods are these?"  The stenciled words read:    "Stow  away from boilers."  Tbe correspondent translated, at  which the manager was greatly  amused. Then the correspondent  pointed to a small black lettering,  reading: "Hams, Wichita, Kan."  Waiking to another barracks, the  writer asked a butcher the price of  pork. This was a dollar a pound,  and bam was $1.80. It was suggested by the correspondent that tbe  same goods could be obtained at half  the price in the Vilgrain barracks.at  which the butcher disdainfully replied, "Yes, but it is dirty, yellow  American pork."  But the customers departed for  the barracks, and the corresponkent  was treated to a great verbal outburst of uncomplimentary remarks.  One of the barracks is totally  American, being formerly used by  the American army. Four of the  nine barracks opened belong to the  American army; the others were pul|  in by tbe French.  It is expected that when the  stores close this evening 25,000 people will have attended and that no  less than 5'),000 pounds of foodstuffs  will have been sold in Paris tbe first  day at reasonable drices.  A groceryman near one of the bar  racks, in reply to a question, said:  "I am in favor of low cost of liv  ing, but can not meet  these  prices,  DESERTERS WILL  BE DISFRANCHISED  ��������� AID BRIDGES  Our Member Says This  District Will Get $36,000  This. Year, With a Prospect of More  A Victoria dispatch says that all  deserters from the army   and   navy  will be disfranchised in British Coi-  lumbia   by  a billintioduced in the  legislature last h riday afternoon   by  Premier Oliver.    The  measure will  apply also to draft evaders with the  exception of those who subsequently  surrendered and   were  exonerated.  Conscientious objectors will also . be  made ineligible as voters, including  those who were entitled to claim exemption from  military service under the  Dominion order in council  of August 13, 1873.  The practical effect of this clause  is to keep Mennonites and Doukhobors off the voters' lists.  WORKERS AT ANYOX  RE JECT WAGE OFFER  Granby  mine   and   smelter  employees at Anyox,   numbering   approximately 1200, after deliberating  for six days over  the   proposed  reduction in wages and the return  to  the sliding scale which prevailed for  many prior to 1917, have decided to  reject the offer of the company. The j  vote   of   tbe  miners showed a bare  majority  of  nineteen    against   the  company'8 proposals.  The entire plant has been shut  down since Sunday, March 2, when  the smelter was damaged by fire,  and will remain closed until repairs  can be made. In the meantime the  hope is expressed that the labor  problem will be solved.  Everything at the mine and smelter is quiet, and the compauv is anticipating no trouble with the men.  Many of tbe employees are men of  families residiug in Anyox. ^Tbe  daily loss in wages is placed'at  87500.  St. Louis Fur Exchange .  Buys Direct From Trapper  Due to certain complaints being  brought to the notice of the St.  Louis Fur Exzhange,7th and Chestnut streets, St. Louie, Missouri, U.S.  A., of unsatisfactory grading of furs  as made by some of tbe advertising  fur houses of that market, when in  January over ten million dollars'  worth of furs were sold, they are  now    also   receiving     furs     from  A letter was read at the. meeting  of the ciry council on Monday evening from J.   E.  Thompson,   M.P.P.  for  Grand    Forks,   in   which: Mr.  Thompson stated that   $20,000 for  roads and $16,000 for bridges in the  district  had   been   placed   in   this  year's estimates.    There was also  a  chance,   he   wrote,   of  obtaining a  further grant   of  from   $15,000  to  $30,000 out of  the emergency  vote  for new roads. Mr. Thompson stated  that he had had  a conference  with  Dr. King, minister of  public works,  in reference to government assist^  ance for the reconstruction of: 4-be  Yale bridge across the North-'FLik'  The  minister had  appeared   to   be  favorable to   the  project, and   Mr.  Thompson ad viced  the   council  to  forward plans of the proposed  work  to the   department* A   resolution  was adopted instructing the clerk  to  take  up   the   matter   of  the  Yale  bridge with  the public   works   de  partment.  Mayor Harkness and   all   the  al  der'men with the exception   of  Aid.  McCabe  were  present at   the meet-  [ing.  Communications were also read  from Provincial Secretary MacLean,  acknowledging receipt of the council's resolution respecting the meat  inspection bill, aud from Water  Commissioner Armstrong in refer  ence to the city's license for taking  water out of the Kettle river.  A ietter from Rev. Gordon Tanner protested against the payment  of a $5 fee for thawing out a frozen  pipe, as he claimed the pipe had  been frozen in the street and not on  his premises. Tbe council ordered  the fee refunded to Mr. Tanner.  A tender for city team   work was  Vancouver, March   12.���������Placiug  before the Granby   company's  men  at Anyox a proposal to revert to tbe  sliding scale of wages which prevailed prior to 1917, or  the alternative  of being compelled, under the  preB  ent demoralized condition of the cop  per market, to close down, the  men  at Anyox voted by a margin of   19  out of several hundred votes cast, to  reject the proyoHal. Upon receipt of  the vote as   indicated/official  word  was sent from the Vancouver offices  to close all branches   of   the   work  pend   the   settlement   of  the labor  situation.    The   works   there   had  been   shut   down   since    Sunday,  March 2, dwiug to a disastrous  fire,  and   the order   to suspend entirely  followed the men's'vote.  Orders for payments of the men's  time were immediately given and  many of them were passengers on  the boats down from the north on  the week-end. The closing of the  copper works is not regarded in  official company circles as a strike.

The-orgauiz-dtion   is   to  be  known   as   the   British   Columbia  Traffic and Credit  association, the  headquarters  of   which   will   be in  J Vernon. The purposes of  tbe association are to deal with shipping and  other problems and to safeguard the  fruit and vegetable   wholesale  business in every way possible.

Vast sums  have   been  used for sheer destruction  and  vast  public   debts have been incurred for  which   there   is   no  corresponding  properly. Throughout two-thirds of  the   world   the work of useful production has been suspended   during  four  years  and its  place has been  taken by tbe  slaughter   of   human  lives   and   the   annihilation of accumulated wealth.   ���������  U.

Their advertisement  appears on page 4.  A New York report says that all  surplus government copper will be  marketed by the Copper Producers'  association for a period not to exceed fifteen months by agreement  with the directors of sales of tbe warj  department. The agreement, it is  said, was tentat ve, and the copper  would be sold by the producers at  market  price for the period  stated  appointed to fill the vacancy caused  by the lack of nominations at the  late election. Mr. McKie accepted  the appointment and took his place  oc the board. This completes the  board.  Committees struck for 1919 are as  follows:  Finance���������John McKie, Mrs. Henniger.  School  Management���������Mrs.  Henniger, Mrs. Cooper.  School Buildings���������C. C. Heaven,  John McKie.  J.. A. Eedmond wrote asking for  the use of a spare room in the school  building for the purpose of conducting a class in elementary manual  training. As Mr. Redmond is giving  his time voluntarily to this work  and as a number of the younger  lads are williug' to. take-jit up in  their spare time, it was felt that the  work be encouraged aud the required permission was granted. Mr.  | Redmond was a former instructor  under the Victoria school board.  While no definite instructions had  been received from Dr. Kingston,  provincial health officer, it was fully  expected that the schools would resume ou Monday, March 17.  In  conjunction   with  a   circular  receutly received from  the  superin  tendent  of  education,  granting authority to school boards to continue  teaching during the Easter holidays,  in view of the time lost through the  influenza epidemic,the board passed  a   resolution   that   tbe  public and  high   schools   continue   in   session  during the Easter vacation, with tbe  exception of one day, Good  Friday.  The board will hold a special session   on   Thursday,   March   20,   to  consider the estimates for 1919, and  also   the   question  of   adopting   a  salary schedule for teachers.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, MARCH 14, 19.1.9  The Standbys, of Success  TA7HENCE; the  capitalist?    This is a ques-  ** tion, the answer of which is worth the  consideration of any man who works. The  man of toda}' with money is in many instances,  yes the majority, he worked hard; in the yesterdays. He is not hereditary, he isnotacrea-  tore of circumstance���������he is his own   creation.  A few weeks ago reference was made to  the lowly beginning of the four men most  prominent in world affairs today, and a reader-  says: "It sounds all right to cite examples,  but if the men who hold the premierships of  Britain, France and Italy, and the man who is  president of the United States have risen from  humble life, it is because tlriy were favored by  circumstances."  That's right. But you will find that to the  man who strives, many opportunities offer and  ways open up that he can not see when he  first staits out. No one can tell what is going  t )��������� happen this month or next, for the hap-  1 enings of the immediate future and the re  suits thereof are dependent on   daily  actions.  Here is another case, that of a man whom,  if we do not know personally, is at least known  by reputation to many���������Robert Pollar, head  of the firm who owns a big mill.'on Burrard  Inlet and whose ships carry its product to the  Orient where he is developing his own market. Here is a man right at home, close by,  whom  we can  observe ourselves, and seeing  ���������someone else's.'i.product���������how far ahead in  tlie world would he have got? ���������'  Kead his own observation: "Let no man  seek a soft .snap. Avoid the easy, lazy job.  Don't run away from difficulties, from hard  work, from hard knows, if need be. Hammering hardens and strengthens a young man, ���������it  teaches him self-reliance, self-confidence, gives  him grit. It drums out cowardice or timid-  nessand makes him unafraid to stand up and  fight until he learns how to win out."  That's what makes the so-called capitalist,  as some people call employers.  That's how Robert Dollar got a reputation  for.ability and integrity so that the United  States government commissioned him to arrange a thirty million dollar shipbuilding contract with the Chinese government and made  him the depository of those millions without  either nation even asking him to put up a  bond.  That's how any man can become a capitalist. The way is open to everyone. The-essen-  tial principles are ever the same: Keep on the  job and put by your money.

While the child's eyesight may appear normal, often there  exists a strain or weakness that seriously affects the health.  This condition is aggravated by study and school work- and  in time will likely result in serious trouble.

Petrie's Store  PKone 64  Every sensible American rejoiced when  the United States government picked out  fifty-eight anarchists to be deported, but it is  not so pleasant for the people of that country  to learn that England has two hundred and  twenty American anarchists ready to send back  to the States. The balance of trade seems to be  against Uncle Sam.  Suggestion from a man in touch with national affairs:'- "If the country is to be saved  from a period of serious industrial depression,  it is of the utmost importance that our people  should not relax their efforts to save, so that  they may be enabled to give generous financial support to .the government whenever  needed." .   *  Delicate Hint  "Shalll I sing Tosti's Good-bye?",  inquired-the y.oung man who tries so  hard to be entertainining.

Eobert Dollar has become of sufficient  prominence to warrant his life-struggle being  reviewed in the American Magazine by B. C.  Forbes, and, while we have not secured his  permission to cite him as an example of the  man who has worked, he will doubtless realize  that this further publicity is one of the penalties of success.  When he first started working at the age of  twelve he got sixty cents a week���������not sixty  cents a day. The argument can not be advanced that sixty cents in those days was  worth as much as ten dollars is today, for no  boy would think of starting for less wages  than ten dollars a week. At fourteen he came  out from Scotland to Quebec, and was chore  boy in lumber camps. The outlook was not  promising and the work was hard, very hard.  At nineteen, he thought if he could improve  himself he might get on in the world, and he  started to figure and wr'te on pieces of birch  bark. And right there he was favored by cir  cumstances, the good fortune, if you will call  it so, that attends effort. The superintendent  caught him "wasting" the time he was paid  for, and wanted to know why. The boss found  the chores were well done, and in a short time  industry got its reward in promotion.  If you can find a more untoward set of circumstances in the beginning of any young man*  let's have them.  Supposing on the other hand he got into his  head that it was not worth while to struggle  against Capital���������and the capital C must have  looked very, very big to a young man at nineteen without education choring in a lumber  camp���������and instead of improving  himself he  . Twenty-six:tous of insurance documents arrived at the treasury department'in Washington recently after crossing the Atlantic on  rhe Mauretania. They were lauded by five  officers and twenty-one enlisted men, and  guarded by a detachment of marines. They  represent $1,600,000,000 of insurance taken  by members of the American expeditionary  force in France. In all, the government has  wtitten more than $38,000,000,000 of insurance.  Time it!

The provincial estimates for public work  are sufficiently liberal to warrant the expectation of reasonably prosperous times in  British .Columbia.during the coming summer.  If everybody would put aside their pessimistic  views and pull off their coatsand go work,  British Columbiawould soon blossom as the  rose.  o  With' Hon. Sam Hughes in the federal  house and Mrs. Ralph Smith in the Victoria  house, both legislative halls are kept reasonably free of dull moments.  When one of the ministers at Victoria  stated on the floor of the house that it required elbow grease as well in British Columbia as in Ontario to make a success of farm-!  ing, he stated a truism that more classes than  the farmers in this province should consider  seriously. There are too many poor people in  the west who want to make an easy living by  bossing the job. In the majority of cases  they fail, and then they blame the country for  their failure, when they themselves are the  cause.  Even war has been unable to change thej  spots on theleopard.

Partnership pre-emptions abolished,  but parties of not more than four may  arrange for adjacent pre-emptions, with  Joint residence, but each making necessary improvements on respective claims.  Pre-emptors must occupy claims for  five years and make .improvements to  value of ?10 per acre, including clearing  and cultivation of at least 5 acres, before receiving Crown Grant.  Where pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years, and has made proportionate improvements, he may, because.  of ill-health or other cause, be granted  intermediate certificate of improvement  and transfer his claim. ���������  Records without permanent residence  may be issued provided applicant makes  improvements to extent of $300 per annum and records same each year. Failure to make improvements or- record  same will operate as forfeiture. Title  cannot be obtained on these claims in  less than 5 years, with improvements of  $10 per acre, including 5 acres cleared  and cultivated, and residence of at  least 2 years.
