 Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province  VOLUME I  VANCOUVER. British Columbia, JANUARY 14, 1910.  36  MERE AND THERE  Th������( demand made upon the Provin-  ���������cl^jOpyernnieiit by the business men  of; the roasi cities, for the fixing of  the rates to' be charged by the C: N.  Ry'.iWM in the right direction, as it  is nut fair that the. commercial interests ;of; the province Hhould be adequately, protected in the matter in  ���������OueiitiiBji. At the same time they attempt;:tp limit rates to a figure that  would hamper the construction of I lie  road or mlWtate against the success as  a business undertaking would be distinctly;,injurious to the welfare of this  and;the other cities of the lower maln-  land and also of the city of Victoria.  The Brat considerations are that we  sl*'iOSi *i*ve   'he   road���������and   that    it  should be a profitable enterprise.    It  cannot very well succeed without bene-  j fifing the country, and it cannot succeed   unless   it ofTers  rates  that   wiil  secure business.    In the nature of the  [case it will be bound to adopt all possible means to build up its traffic, and  being a new road in a Held already in  a large measure occupied, it will not  be in a position to maUe unreasonable  demands upon those whose patronage  Jis necessary 'to its success.  *    *    ������   .  We think, therefore, the,matter of  rate regulation can be left to the oper-  ation of the laws of business and the  I1 exercise of the powers of the Railway  ���������'Commission.  For bur part we cannot understand  1 why such anxiety should be    shown.  R Vancouver ��������� has got   along  very   well  lender  existing  circumstances,   which  iuo one doubts the coming of the C. N.  By. will greatly improve.

Among the commodities, other than  food stuffs, most useful to man. and  therefore most eagerly sought for, is  petroleum, which has become a necessity to * numberless industrial operations, apart from its use either as an  illuminant or a lubricant.  This being true, it is gratifying to  know that there are excellent prospects of the obtaining of petroleum in  paying quantities in more, than one  part of British Columbia, and of that  section of Alberta which immediately  adjoins this province. ��������� For some years  operations have been in progress in  the. Plncher. Crejek district, which lies  just east of the British Columbia bouri-  . dary and along the line of the Crow's  Nest Pass division of the C. P. R.  The difficulties encountered have  not been either few or insignificant,  but it is how evident that those who  continued to believe in the existence of  oil there are destined to obtain rich  returns for their faith and their investments.  Among the several concerns operating in the section named, in which  Vancouver people are interested, is  the Canadian Northwest Oil Co., whose  property is a short distance from the  town of Plncher Creek, in Southern  Alberta. This company has been engaged in drilling for.some time, and  has encountered increasingly strong  indications of the presence of an extensive pool of oil. So confident of  this is the management that it has  been decided to put'on a diamond drill  in .order that the work may be more  speedily accomplished. '     .  Recently the company retaineaTTr.  John Hamilton, who has been successfully engaged for many years .superintending, drilling operations in this  province, to make a careful examination of the iVropeVty.' Mr. Hamilton  made two trips over the ground, and  iir- a report just rec.eiye# byvthe .'pirecr:  tors, says:; "ITpon- my former trip I  was convinced yoiif had aigood nrbi-  ijtjct; but as my'time was'limited; I did  not have* tbe same effahee. .to go. into  matters that I had upon my last sojourn at the property. , .: ; ���������  f  i1 In my former report I stated that  you had the best prospect I had eye-  seen, and from the examination made  within 'the time at my disposal .upon  rtiy second visit,S do not hesitate to  say that I believe oil is there "In inv  liiense "quantities."  -.'"'��������� After |Commentiiigi!?Ti:pon "t'ne"; pi-ogress of the work, lie continues: "With  >- . ���������.��������� --1���������   '��������� ��������� t  a diamond drill-the p"i;esent well can  be driven in a-very short time. The  distance' cannot' be great! as a idt~of  oil is now coming up in the balings.  Dr. Dawson says ni his report on this"!  district that oil will be obtained al  from. L'1()0 to ..2:100 feet. I have followed Dr. Dawson very closely in my  work in other districts and have invariably found his reports- correct."  We congratulate the men who have  brought Ibis enterprise so near" to" successful completion, and trust that  their brightest expectations will be  Fully realized.

The king was much interested when  told that British Columbia fruit bad  captured thirteen first and one second  awards at the Great Spokane (Washington) Apple Show, last year, and  was gratified to hear of the great success met with at exhibitions in Canada and Great Britain.

We think rhis a serious mistake, and the result of"the short-sightedness of soiiih over-cant ions citizens.  In fact, one-gentleman has been talking'"blue ruin" and loo much debt.  with considerable effect, stampeding some timid voters into voting against  the bylaw.  It. is, possible, however, thai on a recount  this by-law may carry.  The incoming council will have (|uestions o!" the graves! responsibility  to deal with, and should have ihe hearty co-operation of the citizens  through semi-public bodies and individually.

These race  ineeta were held for but a fw days,  and all told throughout the Dominion,  the major racing events all combined  took up but a very short time. In  those days whatever betting took  place was largely among those who  bad special interest'hi the race itself.  Today all this is changed so far as  Canada is concerned. Racing has been  placed upon a commercial basis. The  man who says that it is conducted today for the love of the sport, generally winks the other eye. Racing today in Canada is a business. Charters  for race meets have a large commercial value, and the whole -thing has  connected with it a great deal of involved machinery. Today in Canada  it takes an immense amount of money  to run a large metropolitan race meet,  ami that money, to the last dollar, is  supplied by the dear public whose interests the racing folk are so anxious  to serve;  . The summer of 180!) has been an  eventful one in the matter of. racing  and race track gambling in Canada.  So far as Ontario is concerned, the season began at the Woodbine on or  about the 19th day of May. The facilities for race track gambling were of  the very highest order. Book-makers  were present every day. and the highest number present on any one day  was seventy-seven. As these men had  to pay a large sum for the privilege,  It is quite clear that the amount of  gambling at the Waodbine in the  year 1909 exceeded that of any other  year, so far as that track is concerned.  The close of the Woodbine meet,  early in June, found the Hamilton  meet ready for operation. Train loads  of people- went up every day   from  A Strong Letter by a Strong Man  Toronto to the Hamilton meet, and  found there every modern convenience  to aid them^in the'matter of gain-  blingr So far as Hamilton is concerned, "it was not noticeable'that very  many of the book-makers went into  liquidation at the June meet, and the  racing itself appeared to be more or  less incidental to the needs of the  gambling fraternity for something to  put their funds on. Fort Erie, situated within ten minutes of the suburbs  of Buffalo, supplied twenty-one days'  racing at the close of the Hamilton  meet. There are still some patriots  iii Canada who imagine thut the 2,000  population in and about Fort Erie are  those for whom the meet Is held, but  a day on the track shows clearly that  Fort Erie is the paradise of the gambling. fraternity of Buffalo and other  points in New York state, as well as  the fools of Toronto and Hamilton,  who feel that they have a sure thing  daily on that Fort Erie track.  Windsor, with a population of 15,000,  was served by the racing association  that commenced its operations when J;  Fort Erie closed. Of course, it is just  an accident that Windsor is ten minutes from Detroit, and that the race  track gamblers of all the American  territory adjacent to Windsor seize  upon that race meet and turn It into  a regular midsummer Monte Carlo.  This brings Ontario into September,  when preparation for tbe fall meet at  the Woodbine gees on. The fall meet  at Hamilton succeeds that; also at  Fort Erie and Windsor. And so the  merry-go-round of race track gambling  in Ontario starts in May and ends only  when the cold breezes of October tie  up the unfortunate animals that are  dally chasing around the half-milf  track that is the property of the Met  ropolitan Racing Association of Canada. 1908 closes with over one hundred and fifteen days' racing upon the  large tracks of Ontario. This, is surely  a mighty change from the few years  ago when racing in Ontario was centered upon the few days that surrounded the Queen's Plate.

The book-maker, the handbook man, the toot, with all the most  modern paraphernalia for seducing the  unwary to part with their riiauey;  these have been with us from May to  the middle of October. They have left  behind them, a trail of disappointed  men and women, and of youths led  aside from paths of industry and in  tegrity. Wnatever our theories may  be concerning the nobility of racing  as a sport, we are face to face, not  with a theory, but with a desperate  condition of wholesale race track  gambling that has swept like a great  tidal wave over our country, and  threatens to grow to ever, greater and  greater proportions.  Business men must face the question of the daily temptations presented to their employees by the allure  ments held out in the stories of large  iwinnings made on race tracks. The  parents of the land must seriously  consider the future with regard tp  their growing children, and the problem of keeping them away from these  places where all their ideas of hon  esty-will become fatally warped. The  churches of Canada have been dreaming of church union. Here is a large,  fine moral - question upon which ' it  ought not to be difficult for all our  churches to act as one.  In a word, what can be done in the  situation? First, it is essential that  racing as a sport should {Stand upon  its own feet. New York, New Jersey,  Missouri, i Texas, California, Louisiana.

Our criminal cede must be so amended that it will no longer be a refuge  tor the professional race track gam-l  bier who is today in Canacja hiding I  behind its technicalities. Section 227  of our code must be made to clearly  define what a gambling place is, so  that toe book-makers will be held to  be in a place even although they move  sboue from foot to foot The saving  clause in Section 235, whereby book-  making on the track of any racing association is declared legal, must be  eliminated, and the members of Parliament at Ottawa must be given to  understand that bur people are determined upon an amendment to the code  of such a nature that Canada will no  longer be what she has been for two  years, the last great refuge of the  smootb-faced professional race track  gambler, who has found in this land a  very garden ot ease for the practice  of bis allurements, his advertisements,  his lying stories, and all the fine arts  whereby be has tempted so many of  our young men and women into tbe  paths that lead at last to dishonesty  and sorrow.

Office of  2408 Westminster  V  ��������� '  Emetics.���������I have been asked to give  the best formulas for the administration of emetics, and as the information is of very great value I will give  the information in detail, as it was  used by the founder of the best system of herb medication ever used, the  Thompsonian method..  The usual use cf emetics is to empty the stomach of offending materials  in the quickest manner. The offending materials may be poisonous substances taken into the system as such  or substances rendered poisonous by  decomposition or fermentation after  entering the stomach; or the offending materials may be accumulations  of mucus interfering with digestion,  or foreign bodies swallowed by accident.  A more extended use of emetics will  be found beneficial in the general  treatment of disease, to start the secretions and to empty the gall bladder = and. the ducts of the liver . and  cleanse the 'various other glands.  Disease always implies interference  with free performance of functions on  account  of  obstructions   in  the   system,  and an emetic, if properly  administered, will so act upon the va-  jrious  structures, of the body   as   to  j favor  the  overcocing  of    these    obstructions.    In nearly all chronic, dis-  I eases great benefit will be experienced  i by "an occasional emetic; and in most  acute affections an emetic at the start  will  often  cut  short the severity  of  the attack.   It is an easy thing to overdo the employment of emetic;    and  in   persons   subject   to   hemorrhages  they should not beusade at all.    In  all  cases  where  they are given  the  subsequent   administration   of   drugs'  will be more effectual.  The philosophy of emesis or vomiting, is very simple, and consists of the.  sudden contraction of the muscles of  the stomach, chest and diaphragm in.  such a manner that the stomach is  forcibly squeezed and diminished in  size, resulting in the ejection of its  contents through the gullet or oesophagus. The manner in which this  may be accomplished varies according  do the condition of the stomach! When  that organ is extremely sensitive, the  least  relaxant  will  prove  nauseating  as a reaction, thus, a little warm  and cause a contraction of the muscles  water or bcneset infusion or simply  lobelia tea, or salt and water, will  provoke vomiting in irritated conditions of Ihe Btoraach.  On the other hand, depressed conditions of ihe stomach would not permit vomiting by such means; and  when depressed by narcotics or other  similar poisons the administration of  relaxants would not only fail to accomplish emesis, but would greatly  increase the danger from poisoning  by increasing tbe powers of absorption. Stimulants are needed in such  cases along with astringents.  In diseased and sluggish conditions  the aim must be to stimulate the  structures into activity, to consolidate  the mucus that it may be dislodged  and to relax the structures in order  to dislodge the mucus and render the  muscular fibres capable of suddenly  contracting by reaction, and thus  causing the act of vomiting.  Simple Emetic!���������Make a strong infusion of composition Thompsonian  formula of whatever kind you have  oii band, using a large tablespoonful  of the powder to a pint of boiling |  water; allow it to stand twenty minutes and then strain and sweeten.  Also prepare an infusion of lobelia  herb, a teaspoonful to a cup of boiling water, and allow it to settle. If  the patient is very sick he should lie  in bed, though otherwise he may sit  in' a chair, - while taking an emetic.  The temperature of the room should  be comfortable, and at the same time  plenty of fresh air should be provided. Administer the composition In  fusion in half-cupful doses every fifteen minutes, until the whole system  feels thoroughly warm; four doses  usually being sufficient; then, in five  or ten minutes after the last dose of  composition has been taken, administer the whole cupful of lobelia infusion, previously prepared and strained. This may provoke vomiting at  once; but it is preferable that it  should not do . so, and the patient  should endeavor to hinder immediate  vomiting, for the longer it is delayed  the more thoroughly will the tissues  be relaxed and the more beneficial  will be the results. If vomiting does  not take place in ten minutes, then  give again the composition infusion  in one-fourth cupful doses every five  minutes until vomiting does occur;  and after each spell of vomiting give  composition freely, in order to give 4en minutes give the raspberry infu-  fluid to the stomach and thus avoid sJon, and ln another ten minutes giva  distressing retching.  Where there is sourness of the  stomach it will be necessary to add a  teaspoonful of cooking soda to the lobelia infusion. Or, if vomiting does  not occur promptly, add the soda to  the composition taken after the lobelia  Only one dose of lobelia need be taken, as another quantity Would simply  increase the relaxation and so much  longer delay vomiting.  Where there is apparently far too  much relaxation and vomiting cannot  be readily induced, it will be found advisable to give a drink of infusion of  capsicum. Vomiting may possibly be  delayed an hour or more and then  occur suddenly upon exertion, or taking anything into the stomach.  Stimulating Emetic.���������They are especially valuable in extremely sluggish conditions where the extremities  to be relaxed.  Add to the composition a small  amount of cayenne pepper, and administer this infusion in quarter of a cupful doses every half hour for several  hours, until the whole body Is warm,  even to the tips of the toes, and the  pulse is strong, and then give the  lobelia infusion and proceed as in a  simple emetic. Never give the lobelia  until the hands and feet are warm and  the pulse strong. Sucu an emetic will  leave a tonic. impression on the system, especially if golden seal should  be given with the composition after  administering the, lobelia.  Gruel Emetic.���������Some persons become somewhat weak during an emetic and need strengthening, especially  if the emetic is given before breakfast, as is advisable where there is  apparently a stomach well coated with  mucus, as will be denoted by a furred  and slimy tongue.   In such cases the  jbe  of  the composition >and. the gruel. Do  this for an hour and then give the lobelia infusion���������a teaspoonful to a cap  boiling water. Follow the lobelia  by the composition Infusion as- for a  simple emetic. It Is often surprising  to see the great amount of tenacious  mucus which will be thrown out of  the stomach by such an emetic. This  will give immediate reiief and will  aid in the action of remedies administered thereafter.  N'erviu Emetic���������Frequently there  will be nervous conditions requiring  an emetic on account of foul conditions of the stomach, and which require milder means of producing  vomiting than are afforded by ordinary emetics. For such cases instead  of composition, use an infusion of  equal parts of raspberry leaves, gin-  ger, and wild yarn (dioscorea), and  divide the lobelia into three doses to  be given ten minutes apart, the last  doses mixed with the raspberry infusion.  Retal Emetic.���������Some persons cannot take emetics by the stomach at  all when vomiting is needed. In such  cases use by injection to the bowels  every twenty minutes, the raspberry  infusion named for nervine emetics.  Continue four hours and then give the  lobelia by injection in very thin starch  water. There will be but slight vomiting. Such emetics ate not useful in  cases of poisoning.  This Chop  Suey  recipe came  long  ago from "our Chinese cook:���������  The  meat  from  eight  pork  chops,  , t ,     ,     cut. not chopped, into small lumpB and  use of gruel will not only sustain the  , ,   . .       _ .    .   .    ,,       ���������    _    ���������..  ..   - . ��������� , i fried brown in hot olive oil.

Children are especially benefited by this form of emetic.  Prepare the composition infusion as  for a simple emetic, and also prepare  an infusion of raspberry leaves, an  ounce to a pint of boiling water,  strained after steeping. Besides these,  make about a pint of thin gruel, salted: and sweetened.    Give half a cup-  cliopped. a cup of wheat sprouts, and  three small tablespoons of corn starch  and two of sugar blended in water,  and mixed with the rest. To this is  added three tablespoons of Chinese^  sauce, and all cooked over a very hot  fire for one hour, constantly stirring.  Tbe wheat may be sprouted at home,  and Worcestershire can be used in  place    of the Chinese sauce, though  ful  of  the  composition infusion  and-j these may be obtained at any Chinese  follow by halt a cupful of gruel.

The   brilliant   coloring   and  clean appearance cf the fruit greatly  attracted  the hundreds of visitors  to  the ...show, and at the same astonished  many, as British  Columbia  then  Was  very little known to the British  public.   At that time there was ^eu'MaUy  a hazy notion that it  was a country j  somewhere  far up  on  the  northwest |  of the  American  continent,  madV  up.  principally  of great  ranges  of locky  mountains, or covered'with-dense impenetrable forests, with an inclement,  climate, great snow drifts prevailing  or on the other hand, that it was deluged with rain.    As to its being  an  rtgrlcultural   or   still   less   fruit-growing country, such an idea would have  been  generally considered  highly.absurd. ��������� However, to educate the people  of England on this point was exactly  why the fruit was sent over.

Would never have been written had  the Brownings lived in Vancouver. He  then might have written some lilting  verses to silvery voices or rosy cheeks,  but feet, never, for the Vancouver women have the worst dressed feet this  side of the border where our mounted  police chase the Doukhbours. The reason is not far lost. We started out  merrily the other day to buy a pair  of stout boots, black, medium weight  soles, sensible ones, you know, any  size and width that fitted. Note the  word "fitted." The first clerk vaf  looking his prettiest, discussing coming events with the moments heart  desire, stylishly pompadoured, so the  shoes handed out were net fits. Twenty  minutes went by before that clerk  woke up enough to examine the old  shoe. Then with an air of impatience  he candidly said I "should 'have told  him my foot was of an unusual size."  1 should i have to go elsewhere. This  litling business was repeated from the  end of one Ionge to almost the end  of the oither; with variations. One  tried to sell me yellow kids���������fancy an  elderly woman in yellow boots on a  rainy day. Another wanted to know if  I had lived in Chicago and how he  brightened up when I admitted passing  that way. Another insisted on Madame observing "zee beauty, zee  grace," of the dearest pair of buttoned  patent leather, regular dreams, but  alas, we are not a widow, if we were  those shoes would now be ours. The  most intelligent trout can be caught  with proper bait.  Ever notice the warm plump foot of  a baby? How soon all the -beauty of  the foot is gone. The foot is weakened or strained and turns inward or outward, the ankle bone becomes prominent an all the natural mcticity and  grace of the foot and gait is lost because of improperly fitted shoes. The  shoe should be fitted as near like the  the sole made thicker, corns, Callouses  and many foot deformities are due to  badly fitted boots, and too often we  pity a woman with a sad expression,  thinking she must have much sorrow  in her home dife, then more likely than  not its only pinching shoes. For home  wear, slippers are most comfortable to  slip on, but if one has to stand or walk  a great deal about the house it is less  tiresome to wear a laced Oxford or  even a high boot to supp������rt the ankle.  One's hose should be carefully chosen  and should be a trifle larger than the  foot. The licse supporters should fasten from the waist and must be of  elastic. A beautiful foot, does not  mean a small one. but it must be well-  fitted and must feel easy. There must  be no wrinkles on the toes and the  heels are kept straight on the ground.  I:, walking, the fcot is placed straight  on the ground in front of you, this is  better than toeing out or, as the Japanese do, toeing in, the latter is not  graceful. When you buy your next  pair of boots you see to it that your  foot is well-fitted. If the particular  clerk waiting on you does not know  how to please you, go some place else.  They will soon learn to take pains instead of giving them and your comfort and good looks are all in all.  NELL.  CANADIAN  AND GENERAL  the wrecked caboose had a miraculous  escape. Several lines of the Canadian  Northern are badly tied up on account  of the storms.  Paul Cleih, a former Winnipegger,  was convicted of murder in a state  court at Spokane, Wash., but the verdict was set aside by the judge on the  ground that the alleged crime was  committted on a military reserve and  was therefore outside the jurisdiction  of the state.   A new trial was ordered.  Four people perished in a fire at  Fort William, Out, which destroyed a  boarding house run by F. I-L Babcock,  on MeKeller street. Five hoarder  were badly injured by jumping from  the windows, and several escaped in  scant clothing, suffering severely fron>  exposure.
