South Vancouver and The Province  VOLUME I  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, JANUARY 28,1910.  3������  HERE AND THERE  The fact that Premier McBride delivered tbe longest speech on the address the other day that he has ever  made in the House, indicates that he  | is fully alive to the importance of the  [issues now before the country. Although there is practically no Opposition it is evident there will be no  lack of adequate discussion. The example set by the Premier is being followed by his supporters, and the  speeches   delivered     at    the   address  ALD. THOS. J. WHITESIDE  'on any previous occasion of the same  fJttnji,'jj]>V:,ShOi't it looks as if the session is suing to he what it ought to  be, uainely, a convention of publie-  iconsideration spirited citizens with  [whom party considerations will have  Uo weight in  dealing with  public in-  [teresis/ - ���������'  ������   *    *  The   newspapers   are   indulging   in  Lokes at the expense of .Mr. Brewster,  ���������vho since the defection of Air. .Iardine  fs the only representation of the Lib-  fi-al   Party   in   "the   House.     This   is  latural.   and   doubtless   Sir.   Brewster  lees the joke as well as the newspaper  Imen.   At the same time it would be-a  [mistake-to imagine that Sir. Brewster  lis   himself a proper object of ridicule.  }As a matter of fact there are few men  liu the House possessing better qualifi-  Ications for a. place in it than does he.  [Although  not an eloquent speaker-he  [is; a sentleniniiiOf excellent Judgment  land ��������� keen    'intellect.     That   be   v.-ill  jmake good in   his most difficult   position no one who knows him will dsmbt  for a moment.  ���������j    *    *  Elbert Hubbard, the celebrated editor of "The Philistine," pays eloquent  Lribuie to the glories of Stanley Park.  bf the beauty of Vancouver's situation  ind the spirit of progres that the city  ^presses. Speaking of Smiley Park.  w says: "There are parks and parks.  ftut t.hore is no park in Ihe world that  will exhaust your stock of adjectives  and subdue you into silence like Stanley  Park at Vancouver."  It cannot be too strongly im pressed  upon our citizens that in the existing  and possible beauty of our city we  have an asset of almost priceless  value.  i But we must not rest on our natural beauties. There is much that we  can do that will add enormously to the  Impression made upon our visitors  and to our own enjoyment. When we  do these things'we will prove our inability to appreciate our opportunities.  Speaking of Vancouver's progress it  is pleasing to notice-that interest in  Mount Pleasant is growing very rapidly. The wonder is that the value of  its position and its obvious future  should have attracted so little attention heretofore. A glance at the map  and a little, knowledge of conditions  and of the inevitable trend of events  affecting the growth of the city will  show that the locality in question is  bound to become one of the busiest  and most thickly populated section of  the city. ' ��������� ;  FALSE CREEK AS AN  1NDUSNR1AL CENTRE  It is evident from the report of the  market and industries committee that  efforts will be made to encourage man-  ufacturies to locate, here. And Ward  Five's representative, Aid. Stevens, is  by no meiins tl**4east active member  of that: committee. Efforts are to be  made to.induce industries to locate on  False Creek" along"-. the south shore.  This will be of inestimable value to the  development of Sit Pleasant.  With Westminster avenue running  through the centre of the district, it  is^,certain that at. no distant date this  section of the city will experience such  development as will surprise most of  the older residents. Us- superb location in Ihe very heart of the city, and  at that point where the industrial joins  the residential, it will undoubtedly be  ihe best retail section of Vancouver  within five years' time. With two  live aldermen looking after their interests, the citizens of Sit. Pleasant  should now enter on a campaign which  would secure for them the advantages  which nature hasso "bountifully placed  at.I heir disposal.  What's the matter with the ratepayers association? Get re-organized  at once and lake advantage of the unprecedented opportunities now knocking at your doors.  Citizens, get, identified with this organization ami make your influence  felt, through its organization.  Nothing bin the apathy of our people can reinrd the development of this  section of Vancouver.

Were it not made of  Malleable iron and steel, it  would be impossible to do this.  Cast iron ranges are put together with bolts. The nuts  get loose and drop off. The  joints leak.

CIVIC  Various Committees., get down to Work  If the actions taken by the various  civic committees areJaB^e gauge of  the work, the -ne^-cqilD'eil will accomplish this yearj^'-ihfen Vancouver can  certainly congratulate Itself' on electing the present council.. Por-it is certain that never, in'the hisloryUof Vancouver has its affairs been so expeditiously handled as at present. Xo  problem seems too large or difficult  for this energetic ; council ~t������r tackle:  Let us hope "iKafethis spleiuiid coin-,  mencement will be maintained through  the year, and let the citizens give evei  support to the apparent honest effort'  of tlie council to. grapple with the  many difficult matters' which are waiting to be adjusted. ��������� ',.--.��������� ���������  The board ol works, in possibly the  longest session ever he.d in this eity.  lasting from 4 p.m. to midnight, goi  through a tremendous amount of work.  It was decided to open all streets in  the city and rough-grade same. The  most of this work will be done by con  tract and part by day work.  Extensive provisions for * cement  walks and. paring was also made, tc  be clone by contract, but it is expect  ed that this will meet with strong  opposition when the report is pre  sented to the council, as it is knowi  that a number of aldermen are oppos  ed .to contract: labor on cement work  Westminster avenue is to be pavo  from Ninth to Sixteenth, tenders to bt  called for in the near, future.  A matter  of great  interest   to  the  city is the provision made for bette  cleansing of the streets.   This subject  has-been"-.continually, brought  to  tin  notice of the councils of the past, bu  little effort has been made to meet llv  public demand.    Action has. however:  been taken to establish a new system-  including..a. .:\rater^yagpn,,,ltir flushing  purposes.,   ~"���������.-���������������������������'-"���������-"���������"   ��������� ;      ���������   -.-,,,..-..>.  It was decided to oppose the appV  cation of tne G. N. R. for triple track  across the east end of the city. Pe  mission was given the II. C. Fir i  Cedar Lumber Co. to 'construct a spu  to their property at the foot of Laure  Tlie widening of Pender street wa.  also under consideration and will bi  taken up later and decided.  Numerous minor matters and a lpnf  string of cdei.uitations occupied the re.?-:  of the time of the board.  The water committee awarded th������  contract for. pipe to Coleman, Evan-  & Co., their tender being only $12.5(  above a Montreal firm,. but- it wa*  thought   that   the   cost   of   telegrams  zance of these matters," and it w;as absurd to say that any one department  could. ignore any other which was  vitally connected with its operations.  Aid. Stevens\ motion was, "That the  water works superintendent be requested to confer with the city engineer and board of works department,  advising thetu of the work his department had in view, and that this committee; request the engineer to; provide  ue superintendent with the plans of  his department immediately they had  passed the board of works." This  move has been long needed, as the  evident inconsistency that has existed  ���������n this line for some years has been  a source of ridicule of the public generally.  The market and industries commit-  'ee met Thursday evening.    The market clerk being ill, it was impossible to  do much in connection with the market.   An alarming state of affairs was  eveaied. however, when it was discov-  ���������red   that   the   interest,  sinking   fund  ind    expenses,    amounted    jto'   about  17,350 annually and the revenue only  -bowed ������737 for the year, or a-clear  oss to the city of about $K.600 annual-!

Just watch It grow. Its just boom  has been delayed, but cannot.be stayed any great length of time. It has  got to move. now. and we can see the  start. Car, lines are coming and will  come to this part. They cannot dti  otherwise on account of the formation  of the city. South Vancouver is going  to grow and most of it has to touch  and affect the district immediate to it.  Mount Pleasant. Get wise to this:  The boom for Slount Pleasant is corning and it is going to be big and permanent.

This matter is to be taken up at a j  ���������pecial meeting of the committee as  oon as Clerk Kelly has recovered.  The master of industries was    dis-  nssed.    -0A. ;#tevens  advocated  the  ecuring of $5,000 for publicity    pur-  oses,  which  will  tritely go  into  the  stimates. d.'.

Crow stated that he would  ike the city  to get control  of some  6ta remaining on the south side.   Aid.  ileuburn thought the time premature  '���������'ff?t;aik"1iid������stries there.   Aid. Stevens  ere interjected this idea, that not one  ot   of  the  bed   of  False   Creek  re-  naining should be alienated, and that  n   his opinion   the  city   should   take  >ver the whole scheme of development  f the creek and lease sites for rail-  oad purposes and for industries.   Ex-  ressing the opinion that ample  rev-  iiie would be obtained to pay sinking  . fuel and interest as well  e city.  -Aid. Crow agreed that this  ���������a'emed feasible.   Aid.

At all  events it will show what kind of men  our councillors are.  Certain traits of character they must  have���������or fail. The mayor, and some  of the councillors are young men.  They are in the midst of their business career, and have. added to their  business responsibilities those.of civic  government. Will this make or mar  them? That depends on how large, or  small In calibre lhey are.  They will be called upon to continue  the care of private.business.   For the  ALD. H. H. STEVENS  K.

They have assumed civic responsibilities. For the honor, welfare, and  very existence, sake of the city we  wish and demand that they succeed.  We trust it will not be at the expense  of their private interests, but they  must make good. '.  , These young : business men must  know how to concentrate their ener;  gies on one thing at a time, but not-  on  one thing all the time. ,  They   must   think,    clear,   rapidly,  progressively   to   a   conclusion.     And  having done so. must set the conclu--���������  sion. .clean cut and finished aside  for  prompt use. and  pass  on  to the next  thing, or they must fail.   Private business must have its hours^.and prompt,  vigorous,    decisive    action     must    be  taken:   then  civic  inatfers  rnust- have--  its time, consideration and prompt nc-.-  tion. ami there it  must rest.  In civic matters each councilor must,  if he is to be a success, absolutely con- '  fine himself to his own departments.  If a committee be appointed to attend  to certain work, let reference of all  such matters' to that commit toe be  prompt. N'o use using energy and  time in nrgtiinft matters others are  appointed to decide. Let the commit-''  tee do its own  work.  The individual councillor does not  have io he assessor, city solicitor,'  board of works and all' the- departments imporsouified. Let each have  his work and slay  with it.  The publir will watch, as usual,  with inti-ri'st to .se' how th<' new men  come  out   in   this  regard.  The work of the council has a multitude.of details, but only a few broad  outlines.  It is easy for a man to get smothered in detail io such a degree that  the broad outlines of polio are lost  to him. S-.i'-li a 'man will inevitably  be "used" hy the man of broader vis.  ion.

We  don't know what gravity is; neither  do we know the nature of heat, light,  and electricity, though we handle  them a little. We are only animals.  We are coming out of the dog stage  and getting a glimpse of our environments. We don't know, we just, suspect a few things. It will take' an  enormous evolution of our brains to  bring us anywhere. Our practice of  shooting one another in war is proof  that we are still animals. The makeup of our society is hideous. Communication with other worlds has been  suggested. I think we had better  stick to this world and find something  about it before we call up our neighbors. They might make us ashamed  of ourselves.*'  Thomas A. Edison apparently has  ���������ot a great idea of the progress of  modern science and civilization so far  as arriving at the summit goes, for  the above is an extract from an interview he recently granted John R.  McAlahon on inventions of the future.  Hut though this paragraph is an arraignment of the present day development of the human brain, there is  much of interest in some of his prophecies for the future, a future in which  some, at least, of these objections will  be. In a measure, overcome.  One of the greatest problems which  he feels awaits the future for solution 1 would be a greater source of danger  is the'question of the utilization of the  full value of the energy stored in fuel.  For instance, it is a recognized-fact  that a pound of coal has enough  energy in it to.carry around the world  if it were fully- utilized. Rut present  day mechanics has only provided  means' for using a small percentage of  this energy. The best steam engines  of today uses but 15 per cent of the  energy of the coal they consume,  while in gas engines the percentage  runs somewhat, higher. Scientifically  successful means have been devised of  raising the proportion, though as yet  they have not been applied commercially. It may sound startling, but the  fact remains that there is not as much  energy, in a ton of 40 per cent, dynamite as'in a ton of ceal. The difference is that the energy of one is given  off more rapidly.  Radium is probably one of the ������������..,...  powerful agents known, but so far no  means have been devised to utilize it.  It gives off intra-atomic energy, aud a  carload of it is equal to all the coal  mined in the United States in a year.  Rut howf to control that energy is the  problem which awaits the inventor.  The velocity of the sparks given off  by radium is so tremendous as to be  beyond mental grasp. .Microscopic  bodies projected at high velocity are  equal te large bodies going at a slow  ait. It is fer this reason that a pellet  of wax fired from a gun may be made  to pierce a plank. So far the great  trouble in handling radium has been to  discover some means of preventing  these sparks from being a source of  danger to the person who comes in too  intimate contact with them. If an immense deposit of it were discovered it  I  X  .-*  t  i  than   a   fire   in   a   nitro-glycerine   factory.  But some of the easier problems  will probably be solved first. As de-.  vice for utilizing the energy of waves  and tides; storage batteries connected,  with windmills for utilizing *he forces;  of the air, heat motors driven by the  rays of the sun; are some of<the undertakings which are bothering the inventors of today. A little progress  has been made, but much remains.  Small plants served by all of these  agencies are now in operation and  progress is being made daily in their  improvement and commercial adaptability. The machinist is working to  eliminate friction, cne of the greatest  seurces of energy loss in machinery,  while the aeronaut is seeking te overcome, or rather to counteract specific  gravity. Cheaper clothing of an improved quality, artificial silk, automatic machinery and scientific agriculture are studies which are making  rapid progress among the problems of  today. Invention is making strides,  ibut it appears tnat there is still a long  road to travel.  H. J.

Artificial-rubber is a product which  has been eagerly sought by scientists  (for many years past, and some of the  substitutes have possessed many of  the desired qualities,, (hough falling  short on some of the essentials. John  Smith may have a rubber which will  stick to anything it touches, will  stretch indefinitely, but which is not  elastic. Dill Jones has a rubber which  seemingly has all the physical properties but will not stand the treatment  necessary in the arts. And so it goes.  A. G. Inrig has come forward with a  discovery which appears to fill many  of the desired requirements, the hardness and toughness of which may be  regulated by the manufacturer. It is  obtained by mixing certain chemicals  with animal refuse containing gelatine. A mixture of 100 parts of animal reruse, 50 of watar and 20 to 60 of  oil, are stirred together for an hour,  when potassium bichromate and sodium stannate are added in the proportion of one per cent, of each. The  liquid is then heated to 212 degrees  fahrenheit for Ave minutes, or until o'f  the right consistency, when it is j>our-  ed into moulds. When greater toughness or hardness is desired, oil 20 per  cent., bichromate and stannate one  per cent, each, and five to ten per cent  of sulphur are added and the mixture  heated to 257 degrees.  Worms Spin Colored Silk.  "Tell me what colored dress you  want and.I will have the Bilk worms;  spin it the desired shade." This is  the plan which has been tried recently  iu France and which has met with a  certain measure of success. The plan  consists in feeding the silk worms on  mulberry leaves which have been saturated with aniline dyes. It was found  that in a short time the. worms assumed the color of the dye which they  had eaten, and more remarkable still,  when later the silken cocoons were  spun they too were found to have  taken the same hues: Red. yellow and  purple leaves were supplied atiftf beautiful tints of soft red. golden yellow  and rich lilac were shown in the silk  when garnered.  Unfortunately these three dyes are  the only ones which the worms do not  refuse and mineral pigments have no  effect whatever.

Additional experiments  are being carried on.  Aeroplane Torpedoes.  An aerial torpedo is the latest horror  which hi>s been added to modern-war;  fare. There have been submarine  mines and torpedoes, smokeless- and  inoise'.ess guns and airships, but this,  latest plan is to drop 150 potinds of.  gut cotton on the. head, of an in offensive citizen at a range of from ten to  twenty miles. Surely it is going a  trifle too far. '���������  |    The torpedo is simply a monoplane  which carries a weight of deadly explosive   instead     of  an   aviato'1,  and  when equipped with an automa. Ic balance   and   steering    device,   m..y   be  guided as readily as a submarit* torpedo.    The   first  troublesome    tfrtail  was in securing a motor svitable for  the machine.    One of the Adams-Far-  we'l type was finally adopted.  j    This marvellous piece of mechanism  'weighs less than 50 pounds and deve?-  |ops   12  horse   power.

When I ravelin? did you ever i'esl  the need of a small alcohol lamp, and  were you ever dissauded from taking  one with you rn a trip because of the  dancer of siilMng the spirit over the  contents of your grip? A recent discovery has mr-'-e it possible to carry  such a lamp without any qf tne attendant dangers. It is the alcohol  briquette, a small tin box filled with a  semi-solid combustible substance,  which may be carried about handily.  These briquettes are easily prepared  and the flame is readily extinguished  by merely putting the cover on the  box. Denatured alcohol is heated to  a temperature of 140 degrees Fohren-  heit. over a water bath, and then  graced and dried Venetian soap 30  parts and powdered gum shellac two  parts are added and stirred until dissolved. The fluid solution is poured;  into tin boxes and when cool is solid.  ^! Care must be taken'that flame does  not come in contact with the alcohol  while it is being heated and the boxes  must be kept tightly covered.  Office of  - -:-v &.  2408 WestminsterlRd  John D.

"'Martha.' said old Silas one fall  day, 'I think I'll go and get a few apples from the orchard.'  "He looked at her timidly. She said:;;  "'Well, be careful now. Si, only to  pick the bad ones.' '  '"Suppose there ain't no bad ones.  Martha?'  '"Then ye'll have to wait till some  goes bad. of course,' the old lady  snapped.

This is the first in  the history of Vancouver, to step in  and drive out the horses. Doubtless  it will not Le the last. It. is another  step in the direction cf lessening manual and horse labor by mechanical appliances.  . N'o personal blame can be attached  to anybody. Contractors and builders  have a right to do their work to the  best advantage in the course of business. If by increasing machinery and  lessening manual and animal labor  they can make ' more headway and  erct a building at a less cost for the  owner, it is but right that they should  do so.  There are two results, one good and  one bad. These we may look Into  somewhat. It is generally admitted  that the immense increase of mechanical appliances during the last fifty  years has made it more difficult for  as large a proportion of workers to  find employment as was formerly the  case. If this be true, then the steady  increase of machinery will steadily  lessen the proportion of the employed.  And all observers know full well that  there are too many unemployed already.  Horses are going from their manifold employments. Of course this need  trouble no person very materially. And  yet the teamsters, harneasmakers.  horse raisers and horse traders will  feel the pinch during the transition.  However, so far as the horse himself  is concerned, we need not trouble, or  fret. If he should lessen until he become a natural curiosity.  The matter is quite different when  applied to the human units. Every  man thrown out of work, by machinery  entering the various fields of competition, means on-the average a family  of five persons driven to great straits  and a certain portion forced to the  wall.. This is a war far more cruel  and grinding, yes and degrading, too,  than the wars of modern days.  Of course, the more machines  brought'into use, the more machine  makers are needed. But this increase  does not keep up with; the decrease  of labor by increased mechanical ap  pliances. We may suppose a case for  illustration. Steam shovels used for  excavating cellars may displace ten  per cent, of human labor, but only replace in the extra manufacture of the  shovels and the handling of the same,  say only five per cent. This means  en>.tsplutcj .displacement;-of the difference between ten-ahd Ave per cent,  viz., five per cent. A very sericus  loss, indeed! Even if It were only two  or three per cent., this loss to the laborer and his family Is indeed a calamitous  matter.  Now let us take into account the  hundreds and thousands of invented  contrivances to lessen human labor  and to make more money for those  who have meney and money credit.  The result is a very great loss or lessening of the opportunities of finding  steady, profitable and remunerative  labor! And the case grows worse.  Perhaps forty or fifty per cent, of those  fairly steadily employed are so situated in relation to labor and employment that they are always on tenter  hooks lest they drop out of the working list. And as a matter of fact from  this very class there is a constant  dropping down to the ranks of those  only seldom employed.  This. then. Is the state of affairs  today, and this state is growing no  better fast. It Is growing worse, and  in my opinion is the heaviest problem the human family Is faced with  at the present time. It reaches to all  nations, and reaches too many families.  There >'t* two w������ys -of ajioroach-  iiig this question, in looking for a solution in the interest of the laboring  man and womnn. And by the way. I  would interject a note of protest at  this point. I protest against the conditions that are'swamping the natural  labor oppoiunitles of men by the abnormal influx of women into fields of  industry, never intended by nature,  good sense, strong womanhood, high  morality, womanly modesty and refinement. But the conditions are such  that many of the female population  find themselves driven to shojis. fac-  | tor'es. counting houses and other  methods of waking a living, thus drlv>  ing a large percentage of men to hunt  "elsewhere-'for a living,-and to take a  lower wage,in so doing..   ,  In many cases husband and wife are'  forced  to unite In hiring out    their  labor, so as tc make both ends meet.  The result Is that the two get a wage  obtain single-handed,  only as much as tbe husband should  To return to the two ways of improving conditions. That one, the  more quickly reached, is by lessening  tlie hours of ihe day's labor. I le-  meniber when I regularly worked fourteen to sixteen hours a day on the  farm. In this I was one of many.  All the farmers in our neighborhood  did likewise. In summer time - we  worked from six a. m. to nine p. ni.,  and chores while th'e horses were feqd-'  ing at-dinner time. And I have every  reason to believe that our neighborhood was no worse than others  throughout Canada and the United  States.  ." In course of time I went to work at  a trade which I followed for years.  For over four years ,our hours were  from six to eight o'clock. This made  fourteen hours. We had about half  an hour for dinner. Frequently we  worked a couple of extra hours, and  never received a penny extra therefor.  I And our shop was Just like those  around us, for tlmeB and money conditions. As years passed, agitations  were carried on to secure shorter  hours. And lo, after considerable  fighting, friction and insistence, both  the. farmer, and the shopman wore  forced to lessen the work hours.  At first they imagined they could  not get along. If an hour were cut oft'  in the interest of the workman. Well,  it has come to pass that the fourteen  and sixteen hours have been cut down  to ten and eight. This is a mighty  change inside of fifty years.  This much as a prelude to what I  wish to say In the direction of a simple scheme in the interests of the ten  or twenty per cent, of willing workers, almost constantly out of remunerative employment. And a scheme in  the interests of all labor men and  women!  At the present time there is a supply of almost all manufactured goods  beyond tbe demand. There Is further, a larger supply of labor In almost all other kinds or activity, than  can how he utilised. - What is required is steady employment of hired help  ("ontinned on P*������������ ������)  : j.-'I  1; Because it is situate on the very finest bathing beach in British Columbia.  2.

What about the nuisance and menace of overhead networks of wires  and forests of unsightly poles. .If-the  city has not the right to control the  erection of these things, it must seek  legislation until it gets it, for this  nuisance must be abated sooner or  later.    , '.���������'.-  THE SECOND NARROWS BRIDGE.  As to the second narrows bridge.  Ave believe thity bridge scheme should  be changed for a clam, with locks. The  rush of tide water into and out of the  in'et   should   be  control'ed.  The main harbor, and first narrows,  with all Capilano beach and all No.-tl  Vancouver -water frorCnge is spoiled  to a largo decree by the tide current.  Now a dam at the second narrows  would eliminate the greater part of  this current. Instead- of a basin sixteen miles long to fill' each tide, and  to empty each ebb. only the outer  harbor would be filled and emptied, a  small matter. Then above the dam a  great still water harbor would be secured, while the small tide in the  outer harbor would be of no moment.  North Vancouver water front.would be  as quiet as Vancouver water front now  is. The first narrows would be safe,  and the Capalino beach freed from  the tide rip which now destroys its  safety and value.  By all means let it be;a dam, not a  bridge. '  HYDRO-ELECTRIC   POWERS.

We think also they will not satisfy  the Irish National party, and if they  fail to do so; their majority instantly  goes by the board.

It is proper to  add that In the above statements of  distribution of exports by articles the  figures, while credited to Canada, include small amounts of merchandise  exported to Newfoundland and Labrador; though the grand totals of both  imports and exports relate exclusively to Canada.  Big Export is Coal.  Over 98 per cent, of the entire exports of anthracite coal from thc  United States in the calendar yearf  1909 went to British North America  (almost exclusively Canada); about  65 per cent, of the exports of bitumin-  ouscoal; 45 per cent; of the books,  maps and engravings; 40 per cent, of  the structural iron and steel; 30 per  cent of the automobiles; 30 per cent.  of the fruits and nuts; 25 per cent, of  the telegraph, telephone and other  electrical aparatus; 20 per cent, of  the builders'- hardware, and from 10  to 15 per cent, of the entire exports  from the United States of agricultural implements, corn, cars and carriages, and steel rails.  Of the imports into the "United  States, about 70 per cent, are cieditec  to Quebec. Ontario, Manitoba and the  northwest provinces, and about 15 pet  '���������ent. each to British Columbia and  the eastern provinces'of Nova Scotia.  New Brunswick and Prince Edward  Island. Of the exports to Canad.  from the United States, about &0 per  cent, are credited to Quebec and Ontario and about 5 per cent, each to the  maritime  provinces.  Gifford Plnchot, the "discharged  United States forester, will doubtless  be a figure in United States politic;  during the next few years. He has f  continental reputation; lie is rich:  his convictions are radical; and  his attitude towards capitalistic  organizations is' one of relentless histility. ' His recent speech to  the University Club in New York was  surprising!j; Tedical. One of his obser  vations on 'fhatr Occasion was this:  "We have allowed the groat corpora  tions to occupy with their own men  the strategic points -in business, in  social and in political life. . .

Read This M Again  I  ft  (Gontinued.from Page 3)  | in all departments. And at present  there is only one method within easy  reach of remedying this unhappy state  of affairs. It is very simple. Here it  is. Lessen the time of service daily.  Make the standard seven hours long  instead of eight, and where the day  is nine hours long, cut it down to  eight hours/?  By this means we cut off say one-  eighth, say ^welve per cent, for convenience.   Suppose there is a business  now   running with one thousand employees.    Cut off twelve per cent, of  the   daily   output   by   reducing   their  time to seven hours.    It is very clear  ! that   provision   must   be    made     tor  ! twelve per cent, more laborers. Twelve  I per cent, of one thousand is one hundred aud twenty extra laborers.  Would the public stand for such a  change? Yes. they would. In my time  they have stood for a change from  fourteen hours to ten, nine and eight.  This is a much larger per cent. And  the public is after all pretty nearly  altogether wage earners or those dependent upon them. It is for them to  say the word and the change will he  made.  :    Would the employers Maud such a  jchange?    Again   1   Mister  yes.   they  : would, for in my time they have stood  >.  | for a much greater change. And as  j bove mentioned, it is for the labor  j ..eople and those depending upou them  to move in the matter. As quickly as  they so decide, the thing will be accomplished, flow would it affect the  employees? It would make way to  give one hundred and twenty persons  work beyond every one thousand uow  employed. Surely, this would be- a  great gain, an immense advantage!  This meuns a steady  living to six  hundred  people  now  out  of  employ.  Iment. for since on each man-worker  there aie four more depending for a  living, it follows that work given to  jne hundred and twenty means acom-  .'ortable living for six hundred people, old and young.  Mow would it affect the consuming  _ public? Of course, it would increase  the prices somewhat. But the increases are going on at a rapid rate  all the time. I remember well when  the price of eggs varied between eight  and twelve cents a dozen. And butter made a record price when it reach-'  ed the twenty-cent mark at times of  scarcity. Today, eggs vary between:  thirty and sixty cents a dozen, and  one does well to get three pounds of  butter for the dollar.  The small increase in prices, that  Ihe whole community would have to  pay as the result of the plan proposed",  would be a little matter compared with  the highly improved results coming  not only to the twelve per cent above  mentioned, but to the whole working  class and their families.  One of the .curses- of the age is the  large proportion of unmarried, men  .and. women compared with former  days. Not only is this against the  olc.;:us of the highest \and best demands of nature, but against the best! j  interests of the commonwealth. Less  crime, less degradation," better homes,  purer personal life, and a more elevated community- and nation would  come as the result of an. increase of  happy marriages. But this cannot, be,  and will not be until men and women  have a greater guarantee of a fairly  comfortable home life, than can be  .had Jironi the. present straining ..and.  life-crushing circumstances.  How would it affect the whole nation? It would give more opportunity  to all classes, including the wealthy,  to betLer their home life and physical  condition. Perhaps, after all, the hard-.  est worked men in any nation are  those .who are managing great factories, industrial concerns and financial institutions. These and the professional classes work as intensely  and under a more trying nervous  strain than the average laborer.  The writer of this article h'ns !:t>d  experience in both phases of active  "life. As a farmer, a mechanic, a hired  laborer working with pick ami shovel,  as a professional man and as a business man. the writer has uiade test,  and is of opinion that all classes, without-- exception, find this an age of extreme tension. By the above plan  there would be a shortening of hours  which would give a larger opportunity  for all to give" more attention to reading, study and the moie elevating  kinds of pleasure.  Of course, there would be those who  would still play the fool. They would  use the extra time to besot themselves and others. There always will  be such mortals. They are the waste  material of communal and national  manufacture. Doubtless they have  their n^es even though these uses be  hard to discover.  E. ODl.U.M.

It. was with a great deal of pleasure  we attended the lecture and views of  Professor Hetherington. in Kitselano  Methodist    Church,   Tuesday   evening.  The house was packed and a number  turned away, and standing room was  at  a   premium.  Tlie lecturer was in his usual happy  mood and lie ably and interestingly  told of his trip into Northern British  Columbia.  v The views were niest interest ing  and instructive and conveyed some  very concise ideas of the Northern  interior to the audience.  The historical facts presented by the  lecturer weie such and presented in  such a manner that appealed to all  and covered ground not often touched. Tliis lecture; and views has such  value that our school trustees should  endeavor to place it at the convenience oT all the school children in the  city.  We are of the opinion that the evening's entertainment could be put on  with good returns financially and educationally in some of Vancouver's  larger entertainment hal's.  .7.
