 THE WESTERN  Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province  VOLUME I  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, MARCH 25, 1910.  No. 46  In another place, in this issue we re-  [\ .print the*, contents' of a small "pamphlet  just issued'by the Tourist Association  .of  this  city,    We strongly, commend  the facts and 'the appeal included iii  it to, the attention ot* our: readers.  Nothing can exceed the importance  of the establishing manufactures in  our city, and in these days the city  that leaves this matter to "natural  'development" will' be distanced by  communities whose citizens recognize  the value of rustling for commercial as  well; as private interests. '  The building up of the business 'in-  terests of a ..city requires, intelligent'  and vigorous action on the part of the  city.-as a whole, in the same degree  (that such is necessary to ..the development of an individual /��������� enterprise.  |, There  are  many  things  that scan-be  Idone by a' community, to. encourage  manufactures, and where these ate at-  (tended to, the best results - are.  achieved; ���������    "...  For:example, a manufacturer looking  | for' a satisfactory location, .wlib wants  .information about Vancouver; will at  'the present time find'-"it fextrewiely dif-'  I ficult t,o obtain iC^-TUei^fc^  or other .organizatipjn^'ttta't:;i8. able? to  give such ihfol'mattbjj^fotr 7in:ho office  kin the^ city are theTfacis7tabulated.  ���������  On the oilier hand a dozen .Canadian  i cities could be named that maintain  [departments furnished with all "data  bearing- upon' 'the nia^terr anid whieh;  can, -as .a ���������.con������eqii6hce,:'���������6eh'd\;ahjr7eiir  ���������quirer..:'.a--..de'taile'd':*;tiB.port"';Coyering'-.-;'ail  the facts affecting'the situation '.as:,rek  llated  to. ills'/vccfatempiated; venture; f  ' ':���������.;.;;��������� .7;:- ''.:<.i:i'-SyS;Jtf*^:Jtfrtl^XiF:^.^  Tt7is'���������':"not7hard7tq-'see.: that  bth/er.  hliings- beingequal, a city.-"thus.equip-  ^peti.is much more likely to get the factory than is'.Vancouver.. It follows, too,  that the lack of such an Institution as  phist described, in Vancouver, counterbalances' a  very great  proportion of  \he vaiue of our favorable .natural con-  jlitions, andptits us at a disadvantage;  Jts compared with other cities far: tess.  richly endowed, but that make tulli,iise';  >f all they possess. ,;.  '���������'-���������.'''��������� .'   7-    ���������.���������  No  city  can   afford   to   neglect' its  Importunities, for nothing is more cer-  [bin 'that in  this  day,  if things  are  left to get  themselves  done: without  Vvstematic  and  intelligent" effort,  the  results will be 'unsatisfactory and unprofitable... Circumstances have done  ^lu'ch for-Vancouver; influences arising  int.   of   conditions   lying   outside   the  city and not created by effort of our  citizens   are   responsible   for  a   large  jdiare of the wonderful progress of the  Hy.   These factors, together with the  latural  advantages,  are  almost  sufli-  pent in themselves to account for the  paiicouver of to-day.  These facts at once increase our obligation to advertise and justify expectation of remarkable results tliere-  I'oni. "Vancouver" is a word to con-  lire wilh. Already it stands to many  r    s  liillions for all that is progressive,  fubstantial and beautiful in a city. To  liousands of these persons nothing  iould be more satisfactory than the  lformation '>>.:���������' they would find here  londitions favornl-.'.o to success in their  lines of business.  We aie quite satisfied that a vigor-  bus and sane campaign of publicity,  [irooted to the establishment of the  Inanufactures in this city, would bring  psults of a magnitude few persons  |ave any conception of.  But   such   a   campaign     must,     of  anrse,   be  directed   with   intelligence  [nd  marked  by  precision.    Sweeping  generalizations as tp openings for fac-  pries that cannot  be followed up by  btailed   information,     will   do   little  bod.   It would be worse than useless  invite investments in lines of indus-  ly that in the nature of things can-  let  be   made   profitable,   or  that   are  L-eady well represented at the pres-  lit time.    We think steps should be  |iken   to   establish   a   thoroughly   ef-  r-ient bureau of industries to handle  (lis matter.    This  should   be "put  in  harge of a man having experience in  Lis   particular   kind   of   work���������or   at  fast a competent  publicity man hav-  fjg business -experience.    It would be  lis dutv to become familiar with all  the facts bearing upon the industrial  situation here and thus competent to  judge as to the ndustries likely to be  successful. and to, fully inforhi prospective investors as to investing conditions. -���������.������������������-.������������������  The organization, of such. adepart-  ment by the Tourist- Association is  proposed in tlie folder .above referred  to and the personnel of the Executive  Committee of that association is sufficient guarantee that what, it undertakes will be thoroughly" well done.  .In former days premiers of Canada  made frequent pilgrimages to Waslf-  ington seeking favorable tariff arrangements from the . US. Government. Today, however, things are different. Sir'  Wilfrid Laurier wa"s too busy. to. accent President Taft's invitation to a  conference at Albany' last week ainl  Hoii. Com.:1 Fielding "went instead.  It is not at all likely that much lias  conje of the conference. Canada, has a  trade agreement' with .

THcnlrs to the repeated refusals.of the  U.

' Our cousin's to the south of us had  their chance to capture the trade of  Canada, but they did not. think it  worth 'while going after, ��������� now they  have, changed their minds as to the  value, but in the meantime other  changes have occurred also, and  among them the development of Canada into a nation that all countries  are glad - to_..bargain..,, with ��������� on .even  terms.  A Victoria pastor proposes to introduce In his church the custom of  having young ladies take up the collection. This, he explains, has been  tried in several churches in the  United States with the extremely satisfactory result of greatly increased  collections. The explanation of this is  said to be found in the fact that men  are much less likely to "ignore a collodion plate in the hands of a pretty  girl than in the hands of one of their  own sex.  If this is the theory it will, of course.  be necessary to -select for the work  on'v no-'! lool'n'? voung ladies���������and  that in turn artcU to the many present  necessary qualifications for the ministry of the Gospel, the ability to be  a competent ujdge of female loveliness  ���������as to that particular class of it. too.  which is most likely to make a man  part with his money.  This is placing too heavy a burden  upon the aspirant to clerical honors  and cannot but add enormously to the  difficulty now experienced in getting  a sufficient supply, of candidates for  the ministry.  COUNCIL  In making the announcements at the  morning service, at:; Wesley church* oh  Sunday, last, the pastor, Rev.. R. IMil-  iiken/said that He felt it to^ be his tiiity  on behalf .of the congregation Aor express their appreciation of the action  of the city ^council in unanimously resolving to" request the'; police commissioner's . to try and bring: about a better observance-of'Sunday in the.crty  of Vancouver. .^ .";.....,'.;.  "I have ho desire," said '."Mr. Milliken.  "to' "be either fahatlcaT or^^extreme on  these questions- of moral and social  reform. That kind, of spirit always  provokes a reaction, and, the latter end  is worse thah'the first. We must respect other men's- ideals and opinions  anil not hammer them simply because  they 'happen to differ from us. But  we must rlso recognize1'that' there are  certain gieVt moi;ai principles on the  observance and'ti:corporation of which  are .based ...t lie permanence and pro-'  gress., of ,;U1 uutional .and, civic, life..  We must recognize also that these  principles aie seriously threatened at  the present time' both in this city and  in' this province; hot only 'from the  vicious and iaw;l<>s,- but also tiQin interests and corporations, that, are both  strong and .seliisli.

Francis, Perry, who spoke with enthusiastic approval ot the recent action  of the city council in asking the police  commissioners to. take measures to  stop the unnecesary construction work  on the power plant of the British Columbia Electric Railway company and  Great Northern railway. It is time  that Ilritish Columbia should fall in  line with its sister provinces in the1  full observance of the Domnicn Lord's  Day Act.  Dr.T Perry said he"wisheci the com7  missioners would next issue the very  modest request to Chief Chamberlain  to enforce the same act, viz., the crying of Sunday papers by newsboys.  The moral effect on the boys of giving  the whole day to money-making and  Sabbath-breaking is certainly bad.  What kind of citizens will these boys  make if they are permitted by Vancouver to go on in opposition to the  great Canadian institution of the rest  day and in contempt of Dominion  law?  DEGENERACY  : At all times since mankind formed  organizations for government and began the work of nation-building, there  have been -various elements of strength  and weak nes found contending for supremacy. And at no age, so far as  .history shows, was there a time when  any community, or nation was governed by Uiose elements that were conducive to steady and permanent success.        ..���������;  . Nations have come and gone in comparatively rapid succession, arid it is  plainto the careful observer that the  epming arid early growth in real prosperity, of past nations, were the result  >.pl predominating good, of the predominance of the elements that tended'  towards .righteousness. And on the  qlher hand the decadence1 of hi! na-  ti'phs which have gone,, from earth,  was tlie: direct result of the blighting, biasting influence, of moral impurity and national wrongdoing.  . -I-lqw abput to-day? How about Canada? How about Britain? How about  the United States? How about Europe  aijd other countries? The answer  Vould take niany pages to 'furnish details of the present nations of ihis  world.      7  71 shall give at little attention to .our  own home, to Canada.

LESSONS FROM  Principal Mackay, of Westminstei  Hall, lectured on Monday evening before a large number of the members  of the Wesley Kpworth League and  visitors, en "Guidance in matters of  Faith   from   Browning."  Principal Mackay' classed Robert  Browning among the great literary  leaders in matters of religious faith and  life. There is, he contended, no teacher who moie> fully meets the need of  the people of the present day along  these lines. t lian this poet. Speaking  of the things which have caused men  to turn from the faith the speaker said  that they were not only of an intellectual character but.of all and every kind.  In this connection "Bishop Bluegown's  Apology" was quoted, it being .characterized as. one of the finest pieces:  of Christain apologist, literature in existence.  Another phase of Browning'.;' t eacli-  ���������ing-ls that he always put the true emphasis. iiprn the value of the small  things in lite, which are the things  which usually determine the formation and the changes of .a mau's life.  This point was, illustrated -with select  tipns from the poem "Pippa Passes,"  the beautiful story ot 'TipptVs'.': one  day's 'holiday, and 'liow;.''.lt,.-ya*; spent  in a walK througn the country,,she  joyfully singing, the while^'God's iii  His heaven; all's well with the ,������rorld"  and the' remarkable results upon ,the  lives of the; various ��������� men-; and .women  who heard 'her song. 7:;'' 7 .:  ��������� In' speaidng' of-Bt-owning's belief, iii  the power qf7!

While visiting  VANCOUVER'S  ENTERPRISE  Few.cities of tbe age of Vancouver  can show the tithe of progres and enterprise of this Canadian western city.

Let us be assured that we, in common with other nations, have our  faults.    If so,  what are they?  A. few danger points are the following: We have practically trown  the Bible and God out of our school  system. > About one hundred years  ago France publicly threw out reji-  gion and set up"a"'fool goddess of reason. Fraternity, liberty, equality, and  a public prostitute, were put in the  place of relij.;ijn and the Saviour of  mankind. From then until this hour.  Fiance has been going down in the  scale of nations. We may praise hei  all we like, but the fact is she is not  more than a third  rate nation today.  Germany is growing by leaps and  bounds, while France is withering and  drying up. falling to decay. She is  rotten in her civil, domestic, naval  and  military  life.    And  why'.'  Simply  Itr.

The enormity of their past "crimes  then- became apparent, to them and'  they went before-the judges of' thp  court, and made confession of their  ill deeds and pleaded that they be permitted to expatiate them upon the  scaffold. This they eventually did,  going to death with a testimony of  their faith in their new found religion. "         ........  The problem of pain and suffering;  the old, old query of why these things  should be. finds answer in the writings  o f the poet Rrowning. He grapples  with the problem and his- answer is  that if is a necessary part of a loving  Father's discipline. God is the great  potter in whose hand a clay has to  be moulded. He teaches that in the  life of exery man and woman is something which the great Father of all  men   designs   to   hi ing   out.  After Principal McKay's address refreshments were served and some time  was spent in social intercourse . Tho  proceedings wore also enlivened with  a solo by Miss Elva Snider.  !  tern  sioners in support of the action of the  'ouncil. The following resolution  was unanimously passed: "The Sunday evening audience of the First  I'.aptist church, Vancouver, on March  20. 1910, desires to express its hearty  approval of the action of the city council in asking the police commissioners to instruct, the chief of police to  take measures to prevent unnecesary  construction work from being carried  on within the city limits on Sunday."

ADVERTISING!  ADVERTISE \  ITFORSALE  on  the Individual  conscience.  France murders her unborn babies,  while Germany honors those with  largo families. Germany and Great  Britain have been overhauling other  nations bv the rapid increase of children, always welcome in both nations  until lately.  In this matter Canada is following  the results of the increasing godless  teaching of the age. The Bible is discarded. Since the bible is not officially  and nationally respected and believed  in. the inevitable outcome is a daily  disregard for divine command. When  the nation dares to officially cast the  bible out from the guidance of the  young, then the individual soon (hires  to throw God out. of the Home.  Then comfort, luxury, ease wealth,  freedom ot" movement from place to  place, extravagance anil pure selfishness become the guides of husband  and wife. Then follow the murder of  unborn children, domestic impurity,  legal separaiion divorce, polygamy, unbridled libertinism and all the host of  evils common te those who have broken loose front their religous and moral standards.

And  the results, so tar as the men are  concerned, have proved the wisdom of  the plan adopted. The above two companies have been of Inestimable value  to the city and the people of Vancouver, from the view point of growth  and coiivenieiice."       -���������-������������������,;  Our minds readily run to the Vancouver Sugar Refinery which has succeeded from the first. And no wonder.  The causes are not far to seek. There  was room for this enterprise which  has no near competitor, and has therefore a wide territory to cater to and  draw upon. In addition, the management has been of the highest order  from the start. Some men attend  strictly to busines. year in and year  out. They are seldom hear, and not  often heard of; even though in their  special fields of enterprise they are  most wonderful specialists, and prove  themselves to be the right men hi the  right places. Such has been Ihe case  with our Sugar Refinery. Perhaps not  ten men. perhaps not two on the average would recognize hipi on tho street.  Hut the mills grind, the machines run,=  sugar of the best quality is turned  out for the public, and regularly the  dividends are paid to the shareholders. This fJien is another of the makers of  Vancouver.  The sawmills, shingle.niills, found-  eries, sash and door factories, candy  and biscuit factories, soap works and  other industrial concerns are doing  their share for tlie general welfare,  as truly as are the men known as  aldermen, mayors, park-commissioners, school trustees, teachers, preachers, pressmen and tax-collectors.  However. I started out to say a word  abo'ut' another sort of a man who is  finite numerous and 'enterprising in  Van couver. He is the company pro-  motor, and is of two kinds. One kind  is worthy of co-operation, but the other  is better left alone. Ami as this is  the case. 1 shall let him be. for th.e  present at least.  The promoter of merit is one of the  most valuable of our pushing citizens.

The general conception of what constitutes a crime is, that all violations  of the laws of the land as set "forth in  the criminal code is a crime, which  code is simply a catalogue of offences  against property and person. But unfortunately our Criminal Code does  not completely cover the field and often we witness the perpetration of most  reprehensible crimes such as those of  tbe beef trust but besause of our perverted conceptions of justice we do  not recognise them as such and consequently they go unpunished or uncorrected.  f According to modern Law a crime  involves the elements of will and criminal intention. The law here infers  that every man l n t e nd s the necessity eonsea^aces of his own actrTBut  tire act'must be performed before the  law can Interfere. The mere intention  being no violation. For instance, a  mato makes up his mind to Hill another  man and confesses hi* intention to do  ���������P, yet tbe law Is powerless to deal  frith him until be does some act.        ���������'  At present we make no effort to eliminate the causes of crime but only to  prevent the final act, which may be  the culmination of a' long aeries of  primary causes; which it is possible to  remedy.  The anomaly of this position will be  recognized when we consider that the  law excuses a person committing a  crime, who Is not a free agent in thai  he is forced by threats or otherwise  to commit the crime, but fails to recog-  J  ROSS & THOMSON  146 BROADWAY, EAST      -      -      -      PHONE B4485  (Opposite Ko. 3 Fire Hall)   .

A person, who sleeps in a outbound  car, barn, waggon etc.  3. Or being able to work refuses to. do  4. Or   begs in public places.  5. Or is disorderly    or riotous "on uii  public street. ���������  6. Or is an inmate or keeper of bawdy  house etc. **  '.Or who supports'herself and himself by crime , and numerous otlun  offences.  These are subject to a fine of $50.00  or 6 months in common jail or both.  Think of the irony of the possibility  a man arrested because be is broke  and the penalty a due of $50.00 or six  months in jail.  Then again If he is guilty of being  without funds he is classed in exactly  the same category as the one who lives  off the life of shame of another. Here  are two examples of vr.grancy of our  own police - court:  James Grelghton, who, according to  his own tale, had been hungry, a very  long time, was charged with begging  in. his profession aa a vagrant. The  aged offender, who is a sort of' biweekly by -whiskey fixture of the police court, was sent to tbe meditation  house for thirty days.'  Wm. Blake was up on The charge of  vagrancy last October and promised  never to come back again as long as  he lived, and. be kept his word until a  week ago when he arrived with something like $100.00 in his pockets. He  was arrested last night bv Detective  Perry, when the amount of his capita!  was 18 cents. i  The crime these nier are charged  with is being without funds. They have  stolen nothing, they have injured no  one as far as the evidence shows. One  man came to lows - a week previous  with $100.00. He no doubt fell under  the paternal influence of one or more  duly licensed congenial hotelkeeners  on Water street, who systematically  roll hundreds of just such characters  se these. The victim Is by our present  aystem turned into a criminal, the  keeper of these dives If. -patted on the  back and familiarly called. ..Tpmy" or  "Petti" and lionized as one'of our meet  desirable citizen.  The other case Is simply the fully  {finished product. The police say: "O,  he won't work, he is no good." But  the history of the case would . show  this, that once convicted, for ever  barred from getting n position again  and what is there for it but to repeat  the offence or starve.  . Again, Burglary is classed as break;  ing into a bouse at night.  House - breaking is breaking in it.  the day time.  Larceny. is stealing without break-  lag *���������������    ..'-.'  Robbery Is stealing from a person.  Thus the law careiuiiy diagnoses the  various forms of stealing and of course  sets "a certain' term for each different  offence. The first three are entirely offences against property and undoubtedly of a serious nature, but no effort  is made to find out why the crime  was committed, but simply that it was  done, therefore the person Is dangerous and must suffer punishment.  Murder is the mos*. btrious. perhaps.  "������(' all crimes. But in tbe eyes of the  law provocation may reduce the crime  to that of manslaughter.  Thus  we  see.   thai  the law  admits  i.hat it is impossible to set   a    fixed  -.tandard.  but. that the judi;e,    if    he  hinks tbe * rty ir:e������ponsib!e or partly  o, muy reduce tbe punishment accordingly. This is not only an admission  1 the weai"ne=;s of .ri" viiole system,  'nit-also exhibits a tordency on  part  f  legislators  and   administrators    to  evade the .responsibility   of solving   n  very   complex   economic    and     social  problem,   the   solution  ot"   which   will  not be of material benefit to the one  who solves it. -   ,'  "Extenuating oi'^ir.-v* nr-es" is an  admission of the injustice of our code,  for a man is either guilty or not. he  is either resnonsil'.'e or ir>t. It.should  therefore be- the duty of the prosecution to study the criminal and his environments and the causes whi'-h led  up to his allegedly criminal ret and  r>r>t to merely diagnose his dime.

-�����"... .We seem to view all our Institutions
as fixed and immutable, a permanent
order of things, instead of simply being an expression of public opinion.
We class those who violate the tabulated standards of social behavior as
""Criminals",  who must be    punished
forthwith. This is possibly the result
... of an overestimation of the sacredness
of. property and we find it difficult to.
estimate the value of an    individual,
, apart from the material wealth which
7 he-may or may not possess. "'_.-.
The time is rapidly coming, though,
when we shall study the criminal,
when we will eek to ljnow "what are
the causes of crime". "And" remarked
Mr. Stevens, "when this course is taken up seriously it will result in a complete, transformation 1:: human justice
. and In social standards."
Then in place of crying' for ven-
ge'nce. justice will demand that adequate remecMes be applied to correct
the conditions wMrh led up to the
crime. These who are punished sel-
.' dom become better or reformed but al-
��� most always become more vicious be-
��� cause of the contempt in which they
are held by society and because of the
repeated  slights  of their  fellow-men.
Mr. Stevens, then turned his attention to some of the causes of crime.
Continuing he said. 'When a grave of-
.,.-fenc3 is committed the ordinary man
on the street asks 'Why did the fellow do such a thing.' But the official
asks what is the class to which this
��� crime belongs?' Is it 'Hinder or manslaughter?'   Is it embezzlement oi'lar-
:- eeny?' 'Is it robbery or simple stealing?' 'Is It burglary or house-breaking?'    Can  we give  him one, two or
;' a dozen years or can we hang him?' Is
he wealthy?' If so, then go slowly.
Is he poor, then a short shrift and a
merry one for him.' .And woe, to that
��� official  who fails to properly diagnos
/ the case on these theories.   No word is
asked  as  to  personality  or  cause of
the cat. of his environment, or of his
'    antecendents.
For instance in'this City as in all
great centers.''there are aver'y7lar.ge
number convicted 'annually of drunken-
ess, for which the penatly is ?2.50 or'30
' days. Yet hbwoften, asked the speaker, is there the slightest effort made
���'-' to find out the cause of all tliese of--
��� fences?   There must be a reason some--
where and why. should hot the autlioii-
"���'.- ties enquire into these causes and
then set to work to remedy them.
��� This  class  of offenders  alone  cost
. .   the city enormous sums each year, but
no effort is made to neutralize these
"The general classification of criuu
is Drunkenness, Vagrancy, Theft and
kindred crimes against property, and
crimes against person. The most ot
these are capable of being treated by
removing the causes. A very great
factor in crime is want. It has been
demonstrated that crimes against property increase in cold/weather, and
crimes against; person are more numer
diversions and tlie raising of a family
are out of the question. A woman has
either to forego the excitement of the
social round or else neglect the greatest privilege with which nature has
endowed her, that is the custody andj
rearing of a family. Many will object, to this, but it is an. iueontrovert-
able fact. '

dus in hot weather or warm, climates, j vidioua 'crimes of the age, and if prac-
"In England and other older .coiun- ticed !to any great extent will ineyit-
tries there are millions of men unable

"Then" asked the speaker with much  responsibility might well stop and pon-
warmth. "Is it not enough to make a
man steal if he cannot get the absolute necessities of life in any other
way? Is it not an injustice ^that a
man should be refused the opportunity
to earn his bread?
"It is the sense of this injustice
which drives many a man to commit
Ills first criminal act, and as already
pointed out, under our present system
it is practically imposible for a man
to get back to respectability once he

"r.et'a man make the first false step

many criminals, but that there is not
a great many more. Crimes against

rate than birth rate.   England comes
der. It is not only murder in individual cases but is also murder in the
'sense that those who are guilty are
actually murdering or extirpating the
race from which they spring.
"Another form of crime peculiar to
this class Is the divirting of wealth
to non-productive channels and wasting it In profligacy. Whether private
ownership of property is right or
wrong we will not presume to discuss
here but I do state most emphatically
that it is positively criminal to use
wealth for any other than a productive use. "
"In nearly every case a great deal
could be done toward the lessening of
crime by a careful and scientific study
of cause? and the application, fearlessly, of remedies.

The dangerous criminal is the product
of generations of criminals and of.environment and is perhaps tlie most
difficult of all classes to handle ..The
political criminal on the other hand is

"We must always utterly condemn
violence, but that does not hinder us
from seeking to know the - reasons for
its existence. Then again, wealth is
often the cause of crime,'and the type,
of crime which may be attributed to
this cause is perhaps the more ^dangerous because largely ,it goesVnm-

Nature will not tolerate indolence.
Leisure, lack of definite and productive employment are conditions under
which virtue vanishes and vice thrives.
tal weakness of our present system is
that we 'look . upon each offender as.

but is rather by the sufferance of the 1*
government than as a recognized sys- &
teni of dealing with the quesiion.
"In place of legislatures spending
so much time in divising schemes of
how to punish this criminal tendency
or. how to protect that interest, it
would do well to seek for causes and
cut the very root evil out. We have
1,000 sections in the Criminal Code,
which descrihes what is the names
and' classification of various crimes
and what their punishment shall be.
but not a word as to remedies.
"The authorities of India have come
to recognize that by simply muzzling
the press they cannot stamp out
anarchy and are about to appoint a
commission to find out its source nd
cause. Crime is the effect of some
underlying cause. This has been
aniply demonstrated by numerous examples which we have of crimes
which have disappeared because of
changed environment. Such as highway robbery largely disappeared as
soon as steam railroads erne into existence nd the more perfect the system the less danger from this source.
Steam navigation largely resulted ii.

"In place of imprisonment for crimes
against, property. I would substitute
that of compulsory compensation. This
principle is very old, but not practiced now. The greatest of all lawgivers, Moses, laid down this principle in
Leviticus. .'If 'a man^fails to return
anything committed to him in trust, or
if he lihdeth aything and hideth it. or
if he taketh it violently or by deceit,
he shall restore same in principal, plus
one-fifth more.'
"These old statutes of Moses' are
tritely wonderful. Let me quote a few.
Lev. 19, v. 13. 'The wages of thine hire
ling shall not abide with thee all
nUht.' Thus protecting the worker.
Lev. 19. v. 35.'Ye shall do no unrighteousness in weight or measures. Just
balances, .Just weigth, jut measures,
shalt thou have. .Making hbnesty imperative. "  ���-
Lev. 24, v. 17. 'He that killeth a man

'He that killeth a beast shall surely make it good to. the owner.' ,���.:..    .,
.   'Ye .shall  have  same  law   for  the
stranger as for your own country.'
'No man can be corrected but by the
mouth of ..two pi: more witnesses.'

ABOUT HALLEY'S COMET.  Profesor B. C. Pickering, director of  the Harvard observatory, says: "Halley's comet is at present Id tbe twilight region. It is in the line of "the  sun and its brightnes is dimmed by  the lustre of the great centre of tbe  solar system. Besdes it has not yet  attained is maximum brilliancy. That  will be May 18. It will be visible all  through April,- but at its brightest in  May.  "At about that time, if clouds do not  obscure it, it will be a dazzling sight.  About a third of the heavens will be  colored with a fiery gold, its great  flashes of light will play from one part  of the heavens to another, and the  sight will he remembered for generations. Halley's comet'has teen noted  for its brilliant displays."'  Professor Tu-ner's Review.  Professor Hebert Turner of Oxford  writes:    "Halley's comet anneals to us  on historical and sentimental grounds  rather  than  because of i's  grandeur.  In   predicting   its   reMirn   in   175S   or  thereabouts.  Ha'lev pave a sensational illustration of the consequences fo1-  lowine from ihe newly discovered law  j of gravnation.   Which  lie  had  elicited  [from  Newton.    'When  rracious Anne  | became our <pte'?n" Hal'e'-' was appoint-  l ed  savillan  professor of geometry  at  j Oxford, and it was then that he made  his   famous   discovery   about   <he   return, of comets.    George I. made Hal-  j ley astronomer-royal, and he died on  January   14,   1742.   in    the    reign   of  'George II. at the ripe o'.d age of'84.  I When   hen predicted   that   the   comet  'would again return in another 75 or 7(1  'years, say in  175S or thereabouts, he  : hoped  to see it himself, but died  17  ��������� years before it came, trusting posterity  i would credit an Englishman with the  (prediction.      His     calculations     fore-  ! shadowed   a   greater  delay   than   had  | been   anticipated,  and  the comet did  inot return until  1759.    But the delay,  I the causes of which Hal'ley bad so ex-  1 pressly recognized, really added fresh  I laurels  to   his   success  in   prediction.  j The lecturer remarked upon the fact  ithat. as the time drew  near for the  ! prophesied return,  there  was intense  i excitement, and the fulfilment of the  predictiou was bailed as a great triumph.    Moreover,   it   was  suggested  that the history of tbe comet might be  carried backwards, and this had been  done successfully as far as 240 B. C.  Vitiblt to Naktd Eye.  "After its apeparance in 1759 tbe  comet went round once again, and re-  apepared in 1835. It had come back to  us once more. It had been photographed and seen In telescopes of moderate power. In May it was hoped it  will be easily seen with the naked  eye. Until ''recently the calculations  pf the circumstances of return had  been chiefly made by foreign astronomers, but for the present return  Messrs. Cowell and Crommelin. of the  Royal Observatory at Greenwich, had  outdistanced all competitors and been  awarded the prize of the Astrono-  mische Gesellschaft for their m"������t  successful prediction. The problem  of discovering the comet Involved herculean computation, but Messrs. Cromwell and Crommelin obtained such accurate results that Dr. Marx Wolf, of  Heidelberg, was enabled to pick up the  tiny comet on oiie of his photographs  on ' September . 13, 1903, close to the  place predicted."'

Athabasca, is to the effect that the  Indians of the far north are suffering  privations on account of the scarcity  of. caribou and other animals upon  which they depend for food.

' WILI.HM  ."AMES  A.WAND.  Dated this lSth day of r'ebruary. 1310.  Some very reriiarkable testimony  has been elicited by the Joint Committee of the Legislature of the United  States which is investigating the  question of extending the jurisdiction of the Public Service Commission to and over .telephone and  telegraph companies. It is remarkable  as seeming to indicate that in spite  of the large amount of thought, ingenuity, and mechanical skill which has  been directed with marked success  during the past few years to the improvement of the speed and lowering  of the cost of telegraphy, practically  the whole of the business of the big  telegraph companies is to-day sent by  J 'he hand-operated Morse key. in much  .he same way, and at no greater speed  I than when Morse first made telegraphy  a practical commercial art. Thus according to the testimony of Col.-Clow-  jry, president of the Western Union,  the maxium speed of transmission is  obtained in their service by two systems, the Wheats!one and the Barclay,  the former having a capacity of 12",  words per minute, and the latter* of 90,  with an average of about 50 in practical use, and these two, forms of apparatus, it would seem, represent the only  departure made by the Western U,nion  Company from their almost universal  practice of operating by hand by the  Morse key.  Side by side with this evidence,  testimony was given that rapid telegraphy systems have been developed  here, and in Europe with capacities of  from 500 to 1000 words a minute and  over, one system, established in several centers in the United States, beinj.  now in daily use which is sending messages at a rate of 1,000 words per min  ute. The public will naturally ask.  if such high speed be possible, why  do not the telegraph companies make  use of tbe system, and so increase  their capacity and make the corresponding decrease in rates. In his testimony Col. dowry explained that the  Western Union's is a one-message business and that the company cannot  hold messages until they get a sufficient number to send at a 1,000 word-  a-minute rate. This is true as regard?  the single short sentence message; but  in the case of the longer messages approaching the manuscript letter length  ���������the type of business which would be  certain of enormous development if it  were offered to the public, throughout  the whole twenty-four hours of tbe  day, at the low rates which would then  be possible���������It would be practicable  to set half a ���������d6zen,operaterrat wort'  simultaneously in punching, the send  ing tapes, and the message could be  sent through in less than one-tentt  the time that it would take by the  present methods. The transmission of  Peary's 8,000-wortl message from Indian Harbor to the New York Times  was quoted as a great feat in telegraphy. It took a force of twenty operators three days to get the message  through. By the rapid telegraphy sys  ten the same message, after being pre  pared on the tape could have beer  sent over a single line in about ter  minutes' time.  The high speed methods, as worked  .out by Hughes.  Murray. Pollak-Virag.  j ^nd De'any. clfim to ?e"d at the rates  I ..ppr'Pctive'y of 4.500. 1-8.000. 36.000. and  fiO.000   words   per   hour.    The.-..siznifi.-.  r-ar-'e of the������e methods to the public  is that by their    use    the    telegraph  oou'd be extended, cheapened and popularized until it was as available to the  ordinary citizen as the far more highly  developed   telephone   of   the   present  day.

Rochester, B.A., western  secretary of the Lord's Day Alliance,  gave a very able address at the men's  meeting in Mt. Pleasant Methodist  church on Sumlay7 afternoon. The  speaker shoved how necessary morally and physically the day of rest was,  and how lacking in foresight we would  be to not help the upholding of same.  He stated the act had been the means  of securing Sunday rest for about  300,000 to date. The law was in force,  and it was up to the local authorities  to see that it was observed. The fact  that one prosecution had taken place  under the law in British Columbia had  brought it into force. The speaker  was asked if it would stop street cars  and the Sunday trips of steamers, and  the reply was that it would not if the  people so wished. An excursion specially arranged for that day for gain  would be stopped. In the discussion  which followed, the opinions expressed were many and varied.  The act was shown to have been a  dead failure in Saskatchewan, and a  great success at Cobalt. Next Sunday the speaker will be announced,  but for April 3rd, the Rev. Principal  Mackay of Westminster Hall, will address the meeting; April 10th the Rev.  P. Clifton Parker, and on April 24th,  Professor Pidgeon will address the  meeting. The meetings are always  largely attended, and these afternoon  sessions are believed to be one of the  best movements in the interest of men  in the city.  In the Emmet t-.Mc.T.ean shooting  case being heard at the Winnipeg assizes, George Emmett testified that  Bertha McLean had confessed to him  passages in her past life.

Again  In five years Vancouver should become the greatest manufacturing centre in Western Canada and in tlie lii'e-  | time of many, now living, one bt* the  i foremost on this continent.  But this will not come to pass without effort. Despite our unrivaled natural advantages, if the people oi this  generation want to see here "a forest of tall chimneys," in their time,  they will have to get busy.  Other cities are not sleeping on their  oportunities or making a .secret of  their advantages. The biggest and  most prosperous, as well us'the younger, among them aie reaching out for  the things that will do them good���������  and are get;ing them.  Vancouver should do the same���������and  <lo it now.    Delay in this, as in most  oilier   maters,    is  dangerous.    Cities  could   be   named   whose   phenomenal  iearly  progress  obscured  th'-   need  of  jsuch   action.     But   tbe   need' "existed,  'none the less, and U7- cities in question   reaped  tlie  harvest  of their neglect  of it  in  an  abrupt  cesation  of  i' ;owih and shrinkage of realty Values  i and revenues that had nothing to justify them in what weie practically, non-  producing  communities.  Whatever may be thought as to the  probability of such an experence in  the case of Vancouver, it is within the  power of our citizens to now provide  the best'possible guarantee against it  by vigorous and intelligent action.  The circumstances are peculiarly favorable to success. No other city on  the continent enjoys a better reputation than does Vancouver. Its natural  advantages, beautiful situation and  surroundings and its remarkable progress are widely known and appreciated. Confidence in its future greatness is practically universal���������and  there are literally thousands of people  on tliis continent and in the Old Country who have money to invent-in manufacturing.'.who would locate in Vancouver iu preference to any other  place offering equal opportunities in  their particular lines of business. They  want -to-live-here if- they can lit in  and particpate n the advancement that  all are assured \wll mark Vancouver's  future, history.      . : -  Such men. however, are eagerly  sought after by all progressive cities,  and whether we get as many of them  as we ought to, depends entirely upon  the amount of wisely directed energy  we devote to- that end.  THE  a  Every year thousands of people oil  this continent assemble in conventions  jot various religions, fraternal and industrial bodies, most of whch aie iri-  i ternatioiial  in  their scope.  . The cities in which these eonven-  tons are held derive great benefit from;  their presence and the latter ave; as a.  consequence, eagerly sought after- by'  the most progressive cities, of the com  tlnent, many of which send official rep-i  resentatives to them to secure the next  gathering of the body for their city.  Toronto, for instance, covers these  gatherings with printed matter especially prepared for each occasion and  frequently sends "an official, wliile Los  Angeles is always represented by an  official and Seattle nas just recently  provided for the organization of a ConV.  mentions Bureau to carry" on this" work';;  publicity that, we should utilize: Thete  are few cities which are of greater  interest to outsiders than is Vancouver.    The story of its attractions and  This provides-, a means of valuable  its prospects lias been widely published and'it is doubtful,-if'in any gathering of people on this continent, there  would not be a very considerable portion anxious to; visit .this city. If its  charm and attractions were effectively  presented-'-'to', the -convention many  ���������would be added to this number.' In  many cases ,the invitation would be  iiccepted^-and in'all .cases Vancouver  would be brought to the attention of  thousands of persons, under circumstances and in a- manner likely to  produce a most, favorable impression.  This is work well worth doing, especially as our visitors invariably become  boosters for the ei-tv���������and the best  possible advertisement for a city is the  story of a ���������visitor', who has been favorably iiijpressed.: .Moreover it. accords  wilfi''pfdigressive* character aiiS Tepu-  Tation of. the-city, and if well done,  would, to���������-people not previously' acquainted with the city 7 present it in  that light. ....-��������� .  .

The work necessary cannot, be done by boards of aldermen for  the reason that these gentlemen ate  necessarily occupied with what are regarded as the utilitarian features of  civic affairs. This is true in an especal  degree in a city of such phenomenal  growth as Vancouver is experiencing.  It lias been, however, the unversal ex-  ���������erience that in matters of city.-beautifying, the best results follow upon the  'nitiative of pubic spirted ctizens.

The Tourist Association lias coverei'  these  matters  as  part of its   regular  work. and. as  its  records  prove,  not  without   good   results.

To this end the Executive Committee has formulated plans which in-  rlrnl" among other things:  The extension of the scope of its  general advertising through the publication of larger quantities of literature, a greatly increased use of advertising space in newspapers and  periodicals and the sending out of -a  .veekly news letter to the newspapers  *:i the Wast.  The establishment  of an  industrial  Buieau   which,  as  the   name  implies,  j will be engaged exclusively in promot-  iing the development of manufacturing  in the City.    Its work will include the  gathering and dissemination of information   re  industrial   oportunties  and  the encouragement   of existing enterprises by stimulating the local use of  Vancouver-made   goods  through   pamphlets, displays of local products, etc.  The operation of a Convention Bureau along the lines and for the pur-  jpose described in another part of this  ! folder.  i ��������� -���������  j    The  formation  of a league  to  pro-  i  jmote measures for beautifying the City  or active co-joperation with any committee ofcitizens formed for that purpose.

Granville  street south of Ninth to the city  limits. This is a good move if it does  net delay work or use up appropriations that should be used elsewhere.  If the petition is from residents, and  we suppose these are the only persons  wno should figure in a petition of this  nature, not merely property owners  and non-residents, it would be easy  for the resident out. there to get up  and sign such petition, there- is' no  doubt it would be unanimous. IT this  petition conies from property owners  and non-residents, it is entirely premature and ill-advised. .

We refer to the novel and very unusual method of glass fixing to be  noticed in the shop front, the plate  glass of which is absolutely devoid  of metal or wooden supports of any  kind whatever, and yet it stands quite  firm and secure, and appears to be  quite weather-proof. This store will  certainly be an acquisition to the  neighborhood���������the exceptional terms  on which Mr. West secured this vain-1 <������������  able stock, enabling hini to offer  in staples which certainly apvear to  be appreciated by the ladies living in  the vicinity of the LONDON  STORES.

This is the latest townsite to be  placed on the market, and. judging  from reports from the office of the  Birmingham Townsite Co., it .must be  a very important one. The public of  the west have had a very good education and dp' not readily give their  nichey'out unless'tney have some' siib  stantial reason Io lielive that the place  they are putting it will return it with  a veryihandsome interest. This.town-  site hasTbeenjoni the'market only one  week, but 'we understand .something  like, nearly'half-the'lots that are to be  sold in Vancouver are already taken.  Birmingham is situate at the junction  of the Nechacco and Fraser rivers,  having immediate access to over 1000  mi'es of navigable waterways, which  pass through sortie of the finest tinv  ber arease in tlie province, and it is  situate on the G.

'Statements  : coming from the interior prove that  the Inrush of people this year will  surpass all expectations, .and basing  our conclusions on these facts we cannot help believeing that the men who  have secured lots at $50 each have  made a good investment.
