Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant; South Vancouver and The Province

VANCOUVER, British Columbia,. FEBRUARY 18, 1910.
No. 41
HERE AND THERE
It is (o be hoped that the council
will vote the money: asked for by the
Markets and Industries Committee for
-advertising purposes. It is exceedingly important that we should let the
world know the opoprtunities for
manufactures presented by Vancouver.
That such openings exist is proved by
the success attending such industries
as are already established. It is doubtful if "any considerable percentage- of
our citizens realize the rapidity with
which the manufacturing interests of
the city are expanding. Unfortunately
our people do not display as much
interest in the matter as they should.
We are so busy making money in property that we do not take time to consider how tue property in question is
ultimately to earn the revenue necessary to justify tue investment. Certainly no great city can be sustained
without manufacturers, and the sooner Vancouver begins to take vigorous
action in recognition of this fact, the
better it will bs for all concerned.
' *    ��    ��
Our citizens are spending yearly
enormous sums for commodities made
elsewhere thnt could.be profitably pro-
educed in this city. Of this money so
spent only a very small portion remains here, tue balance goes to build
up distant communities. So long as
this condition persists we, as a community, are losing money. It is bad
business and we should make a change
at the first moment possible.
It is customary among us to say that
existing conditions make it impossible
for manufacturers to succeed here.
This idea was formed earlier in our
history and it has remained, althrough
the conditions now are vastly different
from those which in a large degree justified the view in question. It is to
be remembered, too, that it is to the
advantage of many and powerful.. in-,
: terests that this idea should- prevail.1
In the nature, of things it follows that
our lack, of manufactures provides,
openings for many business enter-
prizes that would not survive if industries were to be established here. It is
doubtful, too, whether the railways
have been anxious to see any extensive development of manufacture onj
the Coast. So that it is quite possible
that we have been led to attach more
importance to the impediments in the
way of attaining the status of a great
industrial centre than they deserve.
and as a result have under valued the
quality of our advantages.
One obvious duty thus presents it-
"self and that is to take up the matter
-in a thorough way and get at the facts.
There  is  little  doubt   that  the   tacts,
when  ascertained, would attract investors.    At least the situation  would be
understood and could be dealt with intelligently.    It might be necessary for
[the city to -offer at first inducements
that   would   counterbalance   disadvantages now existing, but which in time
would   disappear.    This   work   should
'be undertaken at once and we heartily
I "support the proposal of the Market and
Industries' Committee which, as we un-
(derstand it. contemplates anions other
things such work as we have referred
to.
The License Bill introduced by the
Attorney General will, we believe/
meet with the approval of a majority
of our people, it. of course, is not prohibition, and is not offered as such.
Some will thintt it better than prohibition but it is not necessary to go into
that question now. The point is that
the act increases the restrictions imposed upon the trade in liquor and provides additional safeguards fur the
public. It is undoubtedly a step in
the right direction and the Government is to be commended for it.
&    *    *
The commission to be appointed by
the Government to fix the location of
the Provincial University will shortly
be named and will likely begin its
work next summer. The city council
of Vancouver should appoint a committee to present the advantages of
this city to the commission. Other
communities are already busily engaged n preparing their cases and Vancouver should not. be behind.

The Legislature has extended.1? for!
eight months, the city's power to expropriate the shore, of False Creek.
Within the period named, the city
should be able to reach an agreement
witli the G. N. railway and thus settle
this most important matter. At the
jsame time this should depend upon
the attitude of the latter company. If
it shows_ itself ���willing'to" .accept, a fair
proposal based upon the assumption
that it does possess certain' riparian
rights it is perhaps better that the
.matter, should he closed. In our opinion, however, the deal should consist
hi absolutely only an exchange of
values. Nothing should -be allowed in
the terms, of settlement that will in-
any way narrow the scope ot the city
in dealing with such property as it wili
.retain: Its rignt to tbdoCas it wishes

not. be shut.-up to any scheme niention-
ing a turning basin or waterway: east of
Westminster avenue or. to. any other
one. or stated number of. 'plan's for
dealing with that section .This we
think, is sumpremely important. Industrial sites are now and will become
still more in demand and the city
should be in a position to provide these
upon favorable terms.
N'o better location for such could be
desired than those, that should be available on the property in question and
as much as possible of this should be
reserved for this purpose.
Furthermore" the council "must"'" see
to it that the public right of access to
to the property from all directions?
should be freely conserved, and that
no other railways seeking terminals in
that locality will not necessarily have
to make terms for such with the G. N.
Railway. The city must retain sole
ownership and control;'- of that portion of tlie section that remains to it.

NEW EXPLOSIVE
FACTORY HERE
Martin I. Stewart, John Pederson and
Associates   Buy   Canadian   Rights
from Prof. W. S. Pierce, the
Inventor.
Two successful demonstrations under severe and rigid tests were made
last week at Shaughnessy Heights,
with a new explosive invented by Prof.
W. S.  Pierce of Seattle.
Messrs. Stewart and Pederson. who
have purchased the Canadian rights tp
manufacture the new explosive, experienced rather an embarassing position on the day set for the demonstration. Sufficient powder had been shipped from the factory at Everett, but
when the party assembled to see; the
results claimed for the new explosive
no powder was in,sight, nor could any
trace of the shipment be found. Prof.
Pierce and Mr. Pederson solved the
serious problem, however. Securing
a dish pan. rolling pin and a few
other cooking utensils, the party adjourned to one of the,-little cabins
near by, and fell to mixing a batch
of the explosive on the spot. After
this operation had been performed,
everyone present was convinced that
there was no danger in mixing this explosive. r/
One pound of the powder, .just finished, was placed .loosely on a large
granite boulder weighing about one
and a half tons. After ordinary preparations to bulldoze..'.-were completed,
the i'use was fired, and all ran to a:
place of .safety. The jar of the explosion could be1 felt quite plainly at
a distance of :?00 yards. On examination the boulder was found to be
split in fragments. Several other
tests were made.' all being equally effective and satisfactory.
In the evening Prof. Pierce asisfed.
by Chemist Pederson. made about 50
pounds of powder, and on the following day gave another demonstration
in blowing stamps.. Twelve pounds of
the powder was placed under a solid
fir stump, about six and a half feet in
diameter. The execution was astounding. Tlie stump being blown out by
the roots and hurled about 20 feet
away. Eight pounds were placed under a similar slump, and it was shattered to splinters. Either of these
stumps���and old experienced powder
nian said���would have taken 22 pounds
of No. 1 dynamite to have split sufficiently to be pulled by a-donkey engine.

1! am atheist in belief and philosophy, and in a more particular way 1
'claim to be a Rible-theist, if such a
term be admissible. Hence, as I read
this: statement in Genesis, I believe
it to be true and absolutely natural,
as well as reasonable and scientific
withal.
"And God said. Let there be lights
in the firmament of the reaven. to
divide the day from the night. AND
LET THEM RE FOR SIGNS. AND
FOR SEASON'S, AND FOR DAYS
AND YEARS:"
.This is simple, plain and emphatic.
Men in all ages, even the savages,
know that the sun and moon; in relation to the earth, give us days, nights,
mouths and years, as well as seasons.
In addition they are for signs. As
most observers, and thoughtful men
and women can readily fill in the
cause of years, seasons, months, and
days, I need not stop to discuss the
matter but pass along to another topic.
We have men of the "higher critic"
school, who at the same time pretend
to take the Bible tor their guide; who
tell us they know a thing or two
worth retailing as first-class matter.
T;h3��y- inform us that the ancients,;
Adam. Methusaleh and other very aged
mem saw the new.moon, followed by
the full moon, and then the hew moon
following the full moon, which in regular order and at definite times came
to make the face of nature bright.
New moon, full;moon; new,moon, full
moon,-   \"--~ '    ;������-.':-Vj\
And' so these regular rounds became
the measurements of the length of the
antediluvian lives. When they had
1000 full moons this was  1000 years.
This is an attempt at originality,
but the thought is as old as-the hills.
it is an attempt at cleverness, but
is too silly for more than a passing
consideration- Any thoughtful man
can readily see that after a period of
thirteen lunar months, tlie seasons
would duplicate themselves. After a
period of another thirteen lunar
months the seasons would triplicate
Themselves, and thus in regular order'
Miiukly establish the fact that there
was a larger period than that of
rwenty-eight days." For this larger
period they would find a name. And
:his name would stand for a year-fact,
for a thirteen month-fact, for a :jG-r��
day-fact:
The ,olden  times   patriarchs- had   as i
good eyes, as good sense, as good; powers of observation,  as good' language j
adaptability,   and   as   true   an   insight
into nature, especially the starry heav-]
ens, iis our speculative Millie-believing- -
disbelieving  college  professors  of  the
higher  critic  class.
These  ancients  saw  tlie  light   from:
morning   to   night,   and   called   it.  day.
"Yom."   They witnessed the period between  sunset;  and  sunrise, and  nailed
it   night.   "I.ylali."    They   experienced
the perir.d- between mil moon and full
moon again and-called thnti time-measure  month,  "Choilesh."    These  ances-'.
tors went throi^h tlie pendulum swing ���
of  thirteen   lunations  or   months,  and:
sought out a name for- that  wonderful ;
astronomical   fact.     This     was     their :
year, their  "Shanah."    So for  all   the
natural divisions of time, they were as j
well equipped as are our college, spec;
illative theologians, for finding suitable j
terms  or  names.    And   they   went   by
fact, not by silly speculation."   In   < his
they   were   natural,   not   artificial   and :.
atheistic.
Comets come and go. but on their,
journey tliey may do a work similar;
to the eccentric in an engine, .or as ;
the governor on ihe engine. Hut this-
is not tlie phase-of thought 1 would:
here  lay  emphasis  on. i
The   marvelous   regularity   seen   in ;
the heavens is truly awe-inspiring, as-;
t< ending.   The moon waxes and wanes ;
regularly down  through  the ages.     In
its  wake the tides come and go with
the  regularity  of clock  work.    I"arn>-
Said to be Seriously Violating its Agreement
With toe City
During- the time of Mayor Buscomhe's term of office the Vancouver
Power Company entered into an agreement with the City of Vancouver
in connection with the transmission of power from Lake Buntzen and the
pressure permitted to be carried as specified in that agreement we believe
isTwENrx.TH0U3.AND Volts. Noalteration or amendment has to our
knowledge been made to thfs agreement, yet we are informed that the
Company, without permission and without the knowledge (presumably)
of the city authorities has practically doubled up the pressure and, we are
given to understand on what seems good authority, is now transmitting
power from the Lake Buntzan plant through the city streets at Forty
Thousand Volts.
The Company has apparently found the loss on the lines at the old
voltage of Twenty Thousand, excessive owing to the increased demands
for power, and by doubling- up the voltage they can carry a much greater
quantity of power, but at the expense of safety of ��he citizens using the
streets through   or  over   which   this  dangerous   current  is  carried.
Increased pressure means that an already dangerous system is rendered
more dangerous, and the fact that the changing of the insulators for ones
more suitable for higher voltage which we are informed has been going
on for some time should have been enough surely to put the civic authorities on their guard.
Seeing that apparently the Company has broken faith with the City
an opportunity has arisen which the City should take full advantage of to
reconsider the whole situation covered by the agreement and nothing
short of placing the dangerous wires underground should suffice to reinstate the Company in the enjoyment of the privileges they would hare
been entitled to had they fulfilled the obligations under the agreement.
What right has. this Compaliy to carry double the pressure the
'.ag}^men't,,calU,^pr.. without getting; the necessary permission?
Further ���It seems that the Company is running Two Sets of Three
Wires each of these high tension dangerous wires through or over
the crowded streets of Vancouver For Supplying North Vancouvbe
With Power. We:cannot learn that permission was ever asked by the
Company or gran ted. by the City for the carrying these extra and'danger
otts wires through the City streets, yet we are informed that they are
there, and have been for some tjme.
���3".
'fSfr*
Qf course from ah operating standpoint it would be cheaper perhaps for theCompatiy to have these wires run to the substation on Westminster Avenue, rather than to have the proper appliances and attendants
at a substation where these wires should branch off on the outskirts of the
city, but from the standpoint of Vancouver City, surely our streets are
sufficiently obstructed and rendered all too unsightly and dangerous wi^h
the wiring necessary for this city's use, without adding to all this by the
absolutely unnecessary introduction of the wiring of a neighboring city.
If a thorough investigation of the increase of voltage is made, and
and if the facts appear to be as stated, may this not have something to do
with the fatal accident at the Barnet Tower the other day, although nothing in the coroners investigation shows that the voltage had been recently
doubled up.
We therefore think that the public are entitled to have the fullest
information regarding the matter;      ""      "" ~~
The following questions would seem to be in order:
(1) Is the company, without the city's sanction, and contrary to the
agreement with the city, transmitting power at forty thousand volts instead of twenty thousand volts ?���
(2) W:hy is the company permitted'to run the North Vancouver
transmission lines (six lines in all) through the streets of Vancouver lo the
substation on Westminster Avenue ?
(3) Why does not the city electrican see to these important matters,
instead of nagging at the owners of electrical signs. Surely these matters
are a part, and a most important part of his business.
(4) How-vvas it that the question of voltage carried by the transmission wires did not come out in the evidence at the late coroners inquest.
(51 Is our city council absolutely at the mercy of the Company that
the Company should think it unnecessary to ask permission to make these
most important and dangerous changes, or to use our city streets as thoroughfares for the highpower atul dangerous lines of another city?

BRITISH COLUMBIA.  PEMAL PEACE  BY PROFESSOR ODLUM  ( Coutiuued from page 1 )  ers, fislieis, gardeners, meteorologists,  and many others long since have learned to respect, and depend upon the  moon and his phases for their success and safety. They may lean upon  melifluous, logoniathic, college professors'for theology worthy of the name  and sadly fall into darkness; but the  moon's seasons, phases and influences  come and go in a manner quite reliable, and worthy of trust.  The sun shines, revolves on his axis,  swings through his orbit, and returns  to hjs luitial point of starting, and  never makes a mis-step. However,  our higher critics plunge wildly Into  the chance-cause of all this regularity,  this fixity of law, order and motion.  They pretend to explain everything  on the basis or materialistic evolution,  of chance, of undesigning design.  In my judgment the worst form of  material infidelity, of gross atheism.  of mad materialistic insanity, is developed in our colleges aud universi-  aies; not in what may be called the  purely secular departments, but iu the  theological  class  rooms.  The heavenly bodies, .all nature in  all her aspects, move along the lines  of strict law. And yet we are told  that law needs not a law-giver. Force,  operating on matter, cannot leap over  the traces of absolute and well defined  law, and yet the very men who point  out these laws are simpletons enough  to say with long faces that law has  not, needs not, a cause to hold matter  in the relentless embrace of law.  Every attempt to make fresh discoveries in mechanical appliances, in  chemistry, in .astronomy, in . photo  graphy, in telephony.'in teiegraphy. in  any and all possible avenues of re  search, is based on one permanent assumption, on one constant postulate,  viz., upon the sure ground that nature  is not a mass of chances, but is governed by- law, guiding toward a sure  and unalterable goal. Proceeding on  this basis, the human mind is encouraged to continue in its pursuit of higher and deeper realms of'nature's secrets than heretofore discovered. No  man is fool enough to undertake the  prosecution of any research, unless he  is convinced that he has the opportunity of dealing with a constant, a con  stant both in force and matter, lie  iheerfully gets out ia bis quest, because he is assured that no natural  phenomenon is manifested to the  human senses excepting so far as definite force governed by definite laws of  action produces that phenomenon. The  scientist and explorer of- nature's secrets feels quite at home when he  finds himself alone in the bosom ot  nature. Here he revels in the great  known through which he enters the  hidden mysteries, stored fway with  the long rolls of discoverable arcana.  It is this fact that leads the devoted  student to consecrate his whole life  and energies to accomplish something  unrevealed to the human family up tc  the present time. He starts out on  the basis of the constancy, on the  fidelity, yea on. the acknowledged design of nature.

The young  student never questions the design ol  the bookmakers, the reasoning of the  geometers and the object of masters  in chemical discovery.  In like manner these'young students,  in the most natural and logical manner, without a word from any man.  come to the conclusion ..that as in the  above and other sciences, law rules,  everywhere, so that; law or rathei  these laws are but the dis-coveied aud  discoverable expressions of the final  -.nd permanent cause of all law. *  This is the normal state of a healthy  .-ultured mind. But~in the theological  gymnasia of almost all the denominational colleges, and ia the acrobatic  camps of the higher critics of religion  and theology, there is a growing tendency to sacrifice all that is wisest and  soundest in tbe training of tbe young  men and women of roday. The preachers, teachers, and exegetical expounders of nature and grace have materialized, scientiftcised, criticized and theorized until they have become two  things, two very contemptible things.  One is this: They shave robbed the  people of their best guides and given  nothing in their place. The oiher is  a most natural result: They have  robbed themselves of all steadiness ot  belief, and the real power to help those  who look to them for guidance. In the  end they drift into infidelity, atheism,  spiritual shiftlessness, intellectual unstable equilibrium and pitiable helplessness.  The starry heavens, moving and governed by.magnificent and constant law.  have lost all their charms for the  men, who, in order to be liberal, in  irder to make themselves appear  broad-minded, have thrown aside the  plainly written word of the men who  had great spiritual insight given then,  by the Cause and Master of all intelligible law.  These men drift from the pulpits  and theological chairs into other  spheres of activity, of less influence,  of lees use, and mostly drop out in  deep sorrow and failure.  If there be one constant element in  all the realm of nature, it is the! presence, the active presence, the conscious presence of the Great Cause,  the Designer and Revealer of the  glories of this wonderful universe.

Hill, sage,  financier and master railroad builder,  would have employed as the rallying  cry for all persons interested in the  solution or the- problem of the high  cost of living. "The problem is not  local, neither is it nattional," said Mr,  Hill. "It is international. ' Air Christendom is wrestling with it: Obviously  the world has reached an economic  crisis. We are not producing food  stuffs enough, We must enlarge the  fanning area of the earth; we must  apply scientific principles to farming: we must adapt ourselves to conditions as best we can while, we are  going through tlie slow tedious process  of making the soil yield more abundantly." ���������-;\  ':';���������  "The Maltiiusitin theory of the too  rapid increase of population for subsistence on normal productiveness  would seem to have some bearing on  the present world-wide situation," was  \ suggested to; M r. Hill.  $675 Cash and the  Bat over 4 YEARS  This is the easiest contracts in  we know of      Do it now  Ignorance on Agriculture.  "Nonsense." he exclaimed. "Agriculturally speaking,, the earth is riot over-  populated anywhere. There is congestion ia the cities. . The problem is  to relieve this congestion"and scatter  the unproductive population to the  farms. 'Then, when "we get them there  we must.teach them how to farm better than nine-tenth of our farmers now  know.

But  they have done.precious little good, if ������  any. Within the last ten years the  cost of everything we have had to buy  has increased about 60 per cent. Population has not increased in such ratio.  So what's the matter? For ohe thing,  we.live too high. When some ladies  down at Washington th9 other day  asked me' to tell them how to' stop  the high cost of living, I told thew if  iliey would tell me how to stop the  cost of high living 1 might be able to  answer their question. The one is as  grave as the other." Mr. Hill paced  the floor ^or a moment in deep _ meditation, suddenly to his interviewer,  he inquired:  "Does your wife do her own marketing? Does she go herself to the butcher, the baker and the candlestick  maker and select what she wants after  one or the other of these methods in  pricing the articles? Or does she  send the cook or the butler? Maybe  she gives her. orders . by telephone.  Most housewives In the cities employ  keeping the larder replenished. Both  are expensive and wasteful.; But this  is the telephone age. the automobile  age. I observe President Taft characterized it some time ago. Each is a  symbol of the times. Each denotes  that we are living high."

tween countries such as Germany
Canada,  has  been   clearly shown
THE GERMAN CONVENTION.
As to Germs ny: An object lesson
as; to the futility of a tariff war as be-
and
as
far as Germany is concerned.
The fight was an unequal one which
could,only have one solution, namely,
the calling off of the dogs .of war by
Germany. ���   '
With her limited area, and vast population, Germany can only sustain her
Industrial army by working for foreign consumers. Her land cultivation and the demands of her millions
or more of congested population. There
fore for Germany to refuse to deal on
a fair standard with <a good customer
because she could not deal on a better, was therefore cutting off a portion
of needed trade which meant cutting
off a portion of needed supplies.
As to Canada: "With Canada the
case was wholly different and wholly
to her advantage. She has a vast
area, and a limited population.- All,
and ten "times more than her present
population' could be maintained directly on tbe soil. She has no .need whatever to look for a foreign consumei
' for her manufactured goods, in order
to, sustain her hungering millions, her
own rich grain fields, teeming fisheries, abounding herds, untold mineral
riches, mighty forests are all sufficient
many times ovsr to do all this. Therefore she could afford to wait the end
of-a contest in tariff conflict with
such a foe. And she might with profit
have waited longer and reached a better bargain still.
As to -Britain: - -The-convent!on seems
to have come with a certain shock to
tbe British manufacturer. Grown used
to the Canadian Preference, he seemed
to take it as a matter of course, in
fact as in some degree, his right, and
perhaps in a measure this is so. For
is Britain not our Mother. Has she
not spent of her blood and treasure
to seurce us in quiet possession of our
heritage since our beginning. Has she
not patrolled our waters on either
coast, iought our battles, diplomatic
and otherwise on every hand, protected
pur commerce on every sea. made uk
freely citizens of her far flunx battle
line in every clime���Yes. well then,
perhaps a slight preference in dealing Is no.charity on our part, but simply a slight acknowledgment of our
debt to her. So some men have reasoned over there.
But Germany, who has never spent
a Rix dollar or expended a life on our
behalf thought we should not be left
freehanded to thus acknowledge our
debt, aud so she raised her tariff walls
against us, higher than she did against
her neighbors. Of course Canada
countered, and so the surtax against
thhings German was raised, thus doubling the benefit of the Preference to
nglind.
Now the surtax is removed, and half
Britain's advantage is gone. The Result will be come more idle hands for
England.
The Sequel: That is far to seek..perhaps yet, but if one may judge aright,
this step -adverse to Britain, will hasten on Tariff Reform in Kngland. if
Tariff Reform is to come at all. It
surely seems the natural order for
the various parts of the Empire to arrange for mutual benefit, a mutual Tariff Preference, and such staggering
facts as this should hasten it on.

The concert given by the pupils of  Simon Fraser school Tuesday night  was a splendid success. The hearty  applause accorded each item in the  program testified 'to the appreciation  of the crowded audience. Every class  in the schol contributed its "quota'to  the long series of choruses and drills,  the success of which promises much  for the future of so young a school.  The selections given by the school's  orchestra, under |ihe 'leadership of  Mr. Hicl:s. were a revelation to the  people on the Mount Pleasant side of  the city, whilst Drill Instructor Bundy,  whose work contributed in no small  measure, to the success of many drills.  must f?el gratified. The individual  items were good, perhaps Marjorie  Mills' Rule Britannia," and Josie An-  'derson's character recitation, deserve  special notice. The members of the  school board showed a lively interest in the proceedings and suitable  short speeches were given by the  chairman. Mr. FlumerfeU. and by Trustees   Dougan   and   Dyke.  Financially the concert wss a huge  success, the piano fund being richer  by $150, and Principal Caspell and his  staff are certainly to be congratulated  on their first school  concert.

Four Directors retire  this year, and a nominating .commit tei'  was appointed to recommend officer*-  to till their places.  An Australian  One of Australia's great'problems is  what to do with the vast, uninhabited,  sub-tropic*!, northern territory which  fronts Asia and the populous islauds  of the Asian seas. This territory is a  vast region of iUSS.OOO.OOG acres of land,  much of which is highly fertile and  capable of supporting, a big rural  population.. To-day it is held by about  a thousand whites and two or three  thousand Chinese, who are engaged in  mining and pastoral pursuits and some  thirty of forty thousand aborigines;  who live by hunting and fishing. It  lies across the Continent from populated Australia, and is by sea closer  to the East than to Melbourne.  South Australia, to which it is at  ���������>resent attached, has ninrie a gallant-  effort to colonize it, but after spending  ���������:������ few millions in pioneering railways  which were not. completed, has had to  .-all a halt. The Urgent necessity of  peopling a land so fertile and empty,  and close to teeming lands of colored  labor, is apparent to every Australian,  z'nd recently the Federal Government  assumed the task of dealing with the  matter. A bill providing for the acquisition of the teritory was passed  by the House of Representatives, but  Ahe^Senate.shelvedJ_he measure.  South Australia aimed to reach the  territory by a line of railway through  Use Continent from north io south.  Building from Port Augusta - in the  south, the State laid down 478 miles  of line at a cost of .C 7,490 a mile, and  at an animal loss since of t90.000.  From Port Darwin in the north 140  miles of rail"were built, leaving a gap  of 1.0(1:! miles to be covered. The  total <lel:t on the. teritory is about  c:-!.000.000, and tlie annual jjfcrden to  South Australia, including tire loss on  it* railways, about   C2:50.000.  In the proposed transfer ���������agri,i,m������it/!  the .Commonwealth was to take over  this debt, and also undertake to complete the railway scheme. The Senate object to the railway, and thus  voiced the opinion of many Australians  who contend that tlie Territory and the  Common wealth would be better served  by a line of railway running north  through New South Wales and Queensland. The dispute is. therefore, between the advocates of rival railway  routes. "  The Australians are very nervous  over this'long,-open, defenceless shore  line. They fear that they will "waken  up sonic fine; morning to find it colonized by yellow men from the north  to the injury of the conception of '.'a  white-Australia"'which is dear to all  Australians. - -   -  THE BEST  IN  19-20-of 192 in 526  Corner 100x120 Cleared and Fenced  $2,400 Terms  Corner on Third  Cleared and Graded  *5,200 Terms  :���������-.*���������������  r'3l  Corner 75x75 on ThN  Cleared  $5,250 Terms  M  6 room House, modern, 35ft.,  3rd Ave. on Hill;  fine view; price $3800; terms  spreadover4 years.
