The annual meetings of the Board of  i Trade and of the Tourist Association  held this week, reference was made to  the Importance of encouraging manufacturers to locate in this city. The  president of the former body suggested that a special department of the  Tourist association should he estab-  Halted to deal wjth this matter exclusively and the manager of-the Tourist  assoc-lttlon submitted a report recommending the organization of an "Industrial Bureau" to be operated by the association. -The members of the latter  endorsed very strongly the proposals  of their manager and instructed the incoming executive to take the matter  up.  i  In another column wc publish the  full list of the recommendations in  question and the resolution adopted by  the association respecting the funds re-  ���������quireil to carry them out.  ���������  ���������      i .  \.

The  'presence Of a large body of prosperous  i.attieanH. is esspntlal: to the <oiitlntied  (prosperity of any city.

This possibility should stimulate  ���������very - "person interested in Vancouver;  lb give the heartiest possible support  Bud encouragement to the proposed  Jiovement. It is a work that should be  lone   now.    There  are   tides   In   the  iffairs of Cities as well us of men that  bunuot. be neglected without loss, and  nothing could well bo more obvious  than the fact that the time has come  [vhen Vancouver should take up this  luestion in a systematic and thorough  MADE IN VANCOUVER.  The above legend ought to mean  more to our citizens than li does\ Few  seem to appreciate the obligation to  give a decided preference for ihe products of our own factories. The obligation exists, however, and it is good  business, as well as true patriotism, to  observe it. It is not an obligation ol  charity, but of enlightened self interest. No man having Investments in  Vancouver can afford to ignore the ad  vantage accruing to the city from tlu  operation here cf successful manufacturing establishments. The money paid  for labor is expended in the community  in which it is received. If the labor represented In goods consumed here h  performed in a distant city, the latter  gets the advantage and. Vancouver enjoys little profit from the transaction.  It is the duty, of every citizen to sec  to it that to the greatest extent possible, the labor cost of the goods he'consumes shall remain In this city. He  should, in .short, select where possible  Vancouver-made goods. He Will ge,  equal value in the original transaction  and at the same time contribute to the  prosperity of. this city and thus to  his own material interest.  OUR  BUSY STREETS.  It was with some astonishment wt  saw. while passing a grocery. store in  Mount Pleasant, a storekeeper throw  out Immediately In front of his store  a large \6nIon," whljqh- evidently -was  no gocd. An onion is a nice .thing  well cooked, or occasionally raw, but  served up on one of our: principal  streets, seems a liitle, out ;of taste. It  Is; a^'g'neat i'Hty^i^^  more respect for the public highwayt  than to do, such as this.  CAR   FENDERS.  ray.       .  Help along the campaign for  r*ay Rolls."  There is great negligence on the pari  of our Council in that they do not. insist oh the P.. C. 13. Ry. Co. providing  fenders' for their cars. The company  have apparently made up their mind  as to the fender they will instai, a^  we see an occasional one. W.e cannot find any excuse for our Council  not attending to this before now.  Before we are aware of the fact,  there will be other accidents and then  the Council will have as much responsibility as the company. Another point j  we would like to see rectified and  that is the bells (not) being rung  while , car's-! are .passing-one .another.  As it does not cost any more and may  More save a life occasionally, why do not  ' the officials Insist on it?  THE LAVMAN'S  NISSKMIY MOVEMENT  Perhaps the most telling reply to  the atheistic di I veilings of the Higher Criticism of the average theological schools of today, is the splendid  and enthusiastic work of the business  laymen' of all Christian denomination*-  throughout the British Empire.and the  United States.  In effect our "higher critics" of  many Christian, denominations and  theological "colleges, have been asserting to the world, that Christ is either  a figment or an ordinary man; that  Christianity is but a human invention, and. is on all fours-with the  other Asiatic, religions; that there was  no flood, no miracle at the Dead Seat  no crossing of the River .Jordan 7oh  dry land, no Daniel in the lion's den.  no intervention of angels, no Hebrew  children in.the fiejy furnace, no |ii$ proceed in canvassing our citizens.'  phetic announcements concerning the;MT|ie above resolutions were adbpted  coming of the Young  Man  of Neza^���������t the annual meeting of the Vancou-  TO BE ESTABLISHED BY  !

Fix  the  date���������Wednesday,  at   4 p.m.  roth, no crucifixion followed by burlap  resurrection and ascension, and that  there is no ground for the doctrine of  future punishment and rewards.  The hard-headed laymen of Anglo-,  Saxondom, comitosed of laborers, busi-'  ness men. kings in finance. la-wyers,  doctors, teachers, and the ablest scientists, have answered the babbling  critics with a reply unique and moat  powerful. Their answer in effect says:  We believe in thes Divine Man of Gall-  lee. We -believe that "AH who come  to Him may have life"; abundant life.  We believe that in Christ all men may  be saved. We believe that spiritual  life may be had in this world, and that  men passing from death unto life have  knowledge Of the fact.       x *  -We believe that Jesus la the Saviour  of the world, that it la the glorious  privilege and bounden duty of the laymen to^aid in having the gospel of a  free salvation preached to all mankind'  during this generation, and are ready  to give of our time and money to bring  this to pass.  'And as never in the history of the  human family, these laymen of all denominations are making such answer  to the critics, who are in the clouds  of speculative philosophy, lifeless  theology, atheistic deduction, and  spiritual death, as ought to make them  sit in silence, or turn their time and  attention ,to the every-day religion of  giving comfort Instead of pouring out  foolish pratlngs. -  As against the Protestant, atheistic  and infidel teachings of some would-  be lights, both of colleges and certain  big pulpits, there is & remarkable, wf^se  and sensible- silenctr on-the partHol"-  ��������� he Roman Catholic clergy. We find  them.always loyal to the doctrine of  revelation, of the dignity of Christ,  and of salvation from sin. We as  Protestants very often blame the Flo-  man Catholfcs for many things, and  forget that some of onr own clerics  are frequently as far, or farther astray,  than those whom we take delight to  condemn. Christian laymen all over  the world are at present doing a work  such as has never been attempted1 in  the past.  And the impression on non-Catholic  business   men    is   profound  a-iuf  far  mer: Information and Tourist. Association on Wednesday evening last. They  followed upon the presentation of a re-  port by the manager sugesting several  new departments of work for the association. The report of the manager  follows:  ff^jiere are one or two matters I  would like to submit for your consideration when planning the future  work of the Association.  While the record of the association  fulljr. attests Its usefulness, there are  some lines of work requiring attention fwhich it should undertake.   '  Of-these the'moat important la that  of promoting the location of manufactures in Vancouver, in connection with  which a vigorous and intelligent eaoi-  pawn''shoultS' be ar-once Inaugurated.  The first step In this would be to  collect the facts affecting the industrial situation here. This is essential,  it would be woise than useles to  spend money advertising local manufacturing opportunities, until we are  in a position to furnish detailed information to those whom such may interest., Furthermore our advertising  should: be specific���������mentioning the industries  for  which  openings  exist.  There should be, therefore, a-bureau  fully furnished with the information  necessary to deal intelligently with  tlie enquiries called forth by its ad:  vertisements.  This requires the assembling of a I  large body of data concerning general  conditions and also those affecting  particular Industries. Facts as to the  availability and cost of raw materials,  freight charges, markets, cost of power, site; etc.. ---eta-.- should be carefully  tabulated.  The data thus obtained might reveal obstacles which would yield to  some sort ol" public action or which,  on ifm other hand might be found to  be immovable and fatal Impediments  to the development here of certain  classes of industry. It would he folly  to invite such industries to locate  fiPfP���������atid injurious to rhe city to have  the   invitation   accepted.  Among this data should he Included  the extent and results of existing  manufacturing enterprises, for 1 think  that in any effort of the kind proposed.  GXP. WILL IT  GIVE VANCOUVER  THE CO-lt ?  According to latest advices from Seattle, the Grand Trunk Pacific, Canada's national transcontinental railway,  nas already spent over $ 1.00.1,000 in  purchasing a site tor terminal facilities and dockage in the very heart of  Seattle. It. is also stated that the company will spend between six and seven millions in improving their property, in building large ocean docks,  terminal passenger depots and freight  yards.  The line of Coast' steamers to ply  on the coast up to Prince Rupert and  Alaska, will make these docks their  headquarters and only make Vancouver a side port of call. It is also stated that the trans-Pacific business will'  start from Seattle.  Another feature of this scheme is t.  make Seattle the  Pacific Headquarters.  Oflkp bulld'ngs and every terminal  facility will Le located at Seattle. Ail  supplies for the construction work in  the north will be shipped from Seattle, also all steel and rolling stock.  What lends a color of truth to these  extraordinary statements is that at  present the supplies are chiefly, being  shipped from Seattle. The steamers  now being constructed in England are  to be registered in Seattle also.  Mr. Hayes stated when here last  year that,the company purposed,building to Seattlte,' tout it' was not though  .that a road whi������ h was receiving such  magnificent gifts from the Canadian  'public would give it the. cohl-shoulder  in thfi way? tf7s1 cei fainly up \6 the  Dominion authorities to get busy and  counteract 'all such high-handed actions. It may be that this is the punishment that is to be meted out to  British Columbia lor refusing to allow  Oriental labor to flood the country; be  that as it may. one thing is certain���������  the situation is serious and calls for  drastic action.

They certainly  do not accommodate the people by  waiting for Fairview cars if only half  a bjock. away.

Alderman Stovers  said:  7 "Mr. Cliairnian and Gentlemen,���������In  rising to speak to >oti this evening  on the subject of 'Canada's Duty in  Imperial. Defence.' I confess to "being  conscious of the fact'that I am altogether unqualified to do Justice to  such an important subject.^ To me,  sir, this subject is fraught with "such  far-reaching possibilities, that at  times I tremble to think of . what  might be the consequences of the action which may be taken hy Canada  at this.tlme7     "^     "   ..   :c.   -> r*"  Ir is not so much. "Shall we give  twenty-one millions of money," or  "Shall , we construct a navy?" but  "What aie ihe "causes which have led"  up to the present crisis in Imperial  history?"������. What underl>ing principles are at stake? If we fail to measure up to the demands and expectations of Ihe enthusiast, what will be  the result? These aud kindred questions are the problems which 1 feel  called upon to solve, when I consider  this, great question of Imperial defence. "w7  I am a lover of my country, because it is my home, and because her  associations are dear to me. I am an  imperialist lecause 1 am a child of  the Empire, because her history  stands for all that is noblest and purest in the race. Wherever the Union  Jack waves, there is liberty and protection to the'weak.  Hut above all. I believe that the  Empire, under God. has within Itself  those elements which will ultimately  work out the-=8olntion of -economic���������  and social equity, the emancipation  of the race, and tbe practical demon-,  stration of the polity of the Man of  Nazareth. I believe that this great  federation of autonomous commonwealths, which we call Empire, is the  nucleus around which may be formed a system of international government, which will know no pauper or  criminal, no oppressor or oppressed,  no war or strife, but under which  men may dwell together in unity and  concord. In this picture too optimistic? Is it sentimental? Is it impracticable?  As I look back through the long  vista of history and view from this  vantage point the rise and fall of .  those natious and empires that have  gone. I think I see the same forces,  under a different guise, contending  for control In our own Ujloved Empire, as happened in days gone by.  "What are these fortes?" it seems  to me is a pertinent question at this  time. History repeats Itself. Rome  was. we are told, founded by outcasts and exiles, who very early formed a system of government by senate,  and Roman law became the model  after "which, largely, the-laws'of. nations who have followed are pattern-  ed.* And just as long as Rome protected the weak, and meted out justice and equity, in her rough and  rigid way, did she develop and expand. Hut when the time csme that  she oppressed the poor in order to  sustain the "opulence and wealth  of her rulers and patricians, then  commenced the disintegration of  perhaps the most wonderful empire  that the world has ever seen.

However, I am not tied down to any  exact, legal, official report and verdict,  based upo, and confined to the testimony produced at the inquest. I  have known William Ashworth eve',  since be came to Vancouver, and with  much pleasure watched him make  financial headway for himself, his  wife and young family, until he wan  within sight of comfortable circumstances.  But he was overtaken by the tempt  er, and the .tempter was legion. In thi  olden days a legion of devils attacked  one poor man; and as we read the  account we are apt to conclude that  was a case rather unique and somewhat solitary in the history of mankind.  But this is not so, for men are attacked to-day by legions of devils as  truly as in the olden days. And  among the many devils that besieged |  the young life and family of William  Ash worth were the hearties devils of i|  drink purveyors. And the meanest of  are the inhuman wretches who give  !  the people making it possible to mur  der their feliowmeh on payment of an  annual price?  History tells the .world that at one  time the Christian church in Europe  sunk so low, that indulgences were officially sold; and on a money basis  crimes were graded, permitted and for-  aiven. I would like to ask our people if they think they have a similar  uthority granted them by the Almighty, so that they may grant an  mnual license for money to men. to  ���������ell drink.    Does the annual fee free  he men who make the laws by which  Tien are drugged to death for money?  Does the annual revenue to city or  province, free from the guilt of murders, suicides and ruined homes? Can  \ license save the saloon man from  terrible responsibility and an awful  tribulation coming to those who drug,  rob, debauch, kill and live upon stolen  money?

Many timet  William Ashworth came to me. and on  many occasions I tried to help him.  One -might as well try to confine an  >arthquake within a thimble, as to  save a man from his own appetite for  strong drink, so long as our Legislature at Victoria make it a special pojn-  'o legalize and authorize a lot of  heartless whisky vendors to prey upon  hat poor drunkard so long as he may  Hve.  We say we are civilized, and yet  keep a lot of men on hand with poisonous drugs to rob, stuplfy and debase our fellow citizens*. Wives may  plead; children may'weep, families  may starve, murders and suicides multiply; and still our legislators and  commissioners make it legal to c'on-  fciniie in this awful work.

'ertain poor, though respectable Britons from the old land; and yet, yes.  and yet, these very people sit still and  permit hordes of a more hurtful anc*  destructive class to dwell in our midst.  But this is not enough: Our citizens  that would keep from Canada good respectable people of our own Empire,  because they are poor", allow a iot of  heartless parasites to make men, women and children poor by the thousands. Better have Orientals come in  by the thousands than keep the? drunk-  <vd makers here by tens" and scores,  the most debasing trade to men. fam  'lies and communities, in-the history  of the world, is the trade of inakinp  drunkards while these drunkards and  'heir families are being robbed in the  process.  ,   The Christians of British Cohimbit?

Somebody in Vnncmvo" ard In Victoria, too, is responsible for the drink-  caused death of William Ashworth,  and scores of others who have been  murdered by drink in Vancouver since  the first license was permitted official  recognition. And in the hereafter,  more than one of our people, licensed,  unlicensed, in the pulpit and pew, and  others who sell against the law, in  spite of the law, will be faced with  fust such a question as begins this my  letter. What will we do In this public matter?  If it were smallpox, bubonic plague  or some other disease, there would be  an awful uproar, a loud wall of terror.  If a wild animal were to come from the  forest only orice a year, and carry off  a little child,, then we would be up Ir  arms and watch for its coming most  faithfully. How great a hero he would  be who might be tbe lucky slayer of  that wi'.d animal!  And yet, worse than smallpox,, worse  than bubonic plague, worse than a  wild animal, is in our mi4st, carrying  I away dozens every year. And we sit  still.

She  cipation  and  oppression   most surely  caused her ruin.  To Rome as she was in her times  of prosperity and development, we  owe largely the fundamental . principles of modern law. She accomplished much for civilization, but in the  crucial moment she failed to recognize her destiny and allowed the sensual, the selfish and the arrogant in  her nature to dictate her actions.  What is true of Rome is true of other  nations. Shall it he so with Britain?  For/ centuries the . Anglo-Saxon  race has examplified a sturdy sense  of justice and liberty, and a sense of  moral rectitude shown by no other  nation. The name "British" has .been  synonymous with a "fair deal." It is  at once a guarantee of good quality in  commercial life and of honesty in financial matters. Her history is a record of the evolution of a little island  nation to that of a World-wide Empire, the greatest ever known, built  upon a national conduct at once magnanimous and Just. The pages of her  history have not 7 all been spotless.  There are many ��������� dark and critical  periods, but;onewy occasion��������� the  race '- has prdvW ��������� that .-.-HE<;>!h������ttl-''-the Inherent power to rise again when it  had fallen  clent   aw,  the" Anglo-8axOn,7 ���������"Righteousness ex  aUetb a nation." and this same element has preserved our Empire up  to the present. 8he has developed, It  Is true, to a great naval and -military power, but this ppm-er has ever  leeo' used 7rather%i a preventative  than as an aggressive force.  The.; great colonising power" of, *ne  Angh>SaxoQ has resulted in the  planting of the race to every quarter  of the globe, and generally speaking,  the individual has been true to the  characteristics of the race, namely,  honesty, Justice/ magnanimity. This  has led to the predominance of the  race wherever the}' have settled; and  to-day we have several self-governing nations, offshoots of the parent  tree, yet essentially the same. And  even our rivals admit that in air cases  we have- the greatest of liberty and  the most equitable of governments  ^���������wherever British Instltui ions prevail.  ' But there has entered into the political, social and economic life of our  race, during the last century, a factor  which has produced such radical  changes in the national character as  to threaten the very existence of tbe  Empire. I refer to tbe remarkable  development of the industrial e!e  ment. Whereas in England a few  years ago. there was a large portion  of the nation dwelling in rural districts, to-day only a small portion do,  and that chiefly the wealthy. 1-arge i  and congested industrial centres have  sprung up, reeking in toil and disease,  which are rapidly undermining both  the physical and moral constitution of  tbe nation. In place of the sturdy,  moral Briton of the past, we are producing a race who are Incapable of appreciating the value of any high Im  perlalistic Ideals. This result of changed environment is natural and must  obtain in the very nature ot things.  In addition to this great change In  the character and condition of the  race, we must add the fact that Britain is taxed for tbe maintenance of a  navy to police and defend not only the  Empire, but semi-dependent nations as  well. This stupendous burden is becoming unbearable to the English taxpayer, and must ultimately result disastrously for the nation, unless some  speedy and permanent relief is given.  Another factor, external in character,  has arisen to menace our very existence as a nation. 1 refer to the "German menace." I do not do so simply  to raise a hue and cry, but because it,  too. is a natural sequence. For years  England has been the very hub of the  world's Industry. But for many decades Germany has been sending tens  of thousands of her ablest young men  to England to learn the various'arts of  manufacture, until to-day she has risen  from a position of absolute inferiority  to that of "a dangerous rival, even, in  deed, if she does not take a place equal  to old England in the industrial realm.  Then, again, the present German Emperor hbted that annually thousands  of her best and ablest- citizens emigrated to British colonies, to be absorbed and assimilated by them, and  in a remarkably short time becoming  the loyal, prosperous and contented  subjects of her  most feared rival.  These multitudes of. her best are  eternally lost to Germany The Fatherland is now overcrowded, and the  development so assiduously striven for  has even now reached its limits, unless some outlet is given which will be  under German dominance. The  Monroe Doctrine of Uncle Sam, together with his blood relationship to  John Bull, has effectually held in  check the Teuton of America. But  when In 1900 the preent Emperor  announced his great Imperialistic  campaign, there was one object and  one aim. To produce a race of patriots and to provide the means to  break British power and dominance.  With this in view, the Emperor remodeled the educational sy tern of  I Germany, largely abolishing the dead  languages from their curriculum, and  substituting, therefor technical and  patriotic subjects in order to generate in the very being of the. young a I  love for their country ajnd a pride  in her development. And then we  have his great naval policy. Where-,  as ten years ago Germany was scarcely  considered a naval power, to-day she  Is perhaps second only to. Great'Brit-  tain and has now laid down 32 new  ships of war, to be completed in the  shortest possible time. Her expenditures have doubled that announced in 1900  and the prdgramme has been far exceeded.  While the idealistic view may appeal to us, and we may long for competition, and that is indeed harsh  enough, still it behoves us as practical  men to take into consideration conditions as they are now, not as we  would wish them to be, but as they  actually exist.  We have then oiir Empire, the  greatest of all empires, containing  and powers of becoming the nucleus  inherent within itself the possibilities  from wbich may be evolved a' still  greater federation of nations, and  *ac*s, which will ensure* peaei; prosperity and security to ail.''*"' Yet' -ttthf  nation now exhibits signs of   decay  will  disibtegliatlon. She  Is also threatened from without by  an arrogant ambitious power, whose  sole object Is to And room for the  expansion of its own national life:  t  ���������%%^%-%^it^%'Vtv\.'Viu^'%^*v%,  WALLPAPER  "I  ROSS & THOMSON  PHONE R4485  146 BROADWAY, EAST      -      -  (Opposite No. 3 Fire Hall)  PAPERHANGING, KALSOMING, PAINTING and  ������ GLAZING DECORATING  r     Our Spring stock just arrived and selling at Winter Prices  R^ILL TIP TEA  Special  FRIDAY and SATURDAY (Wkek)  MACFARLANE'S  2313 WESTMINSTER AVE.

The accomplishment of7 the object  aimed at is of paramount interest to  the city, and It ought to be possible to  secure the necessary funds. -  jn my opinion the asoclatlon should  also take active measures to promote  tbe beautifying of the city. The success attending former efforts of the  association in this direction, resulting  among other.. things lna���������the_ preservation of English Bay, and the establishing there of a bathing beach, would  justify It in taking up again this kind  of work. The experience of all cities  is to tbe effect that the best results  in tbe matter of beautifying are obtained through the. co-operation of  committees of citizens with the civic  authorities.  I would, therefore, suggest that a  committee be formed for the purpose  named.  I would suggest too that a committee to be known' as the conventions  committee should 4be formed for the  purpose   of  bringing  conventions   to  this   city.    Well   directed   efforts   in  this direction  would secure for  tbi;  city   a   considerable   number   of   the  conventions of business,    social  and  fraternal   organizations.    This   would  bring thousands of people here each  year, who would not otherwise visit  tbe  city,  making  business  not  only  for the railroads and hotels, but contributing in every way to the prestige  and  popularity  of Vancouver.

I   will deal with this    question    to  establish a  Canadian navy    first.      1  would ask you to disabuse your minds  ol' all political prejudice al  this time.

It. would mearo that many millions of money would be placed <in  circulation. It would mean the stimulation of a very desirable industiy,  that is shipbuilding The establishment ot huge docks would undoubtedly give an impetus to that  bianch of tiade It would, again, to a  'ertain extent give Canada a place  among: nations, similar to thai which  the United States held a centuiv ago  In case at some tutuie time Canada  should become independent, it would  ptove the nucleus ol a nav> toi om  own defence  But aie these the most impoitant  ihings to be consideied' I think not  Oui duty as alie-idy stated is to view  the exigencies of the case and to meet  them Would- this scheme ot a Can  adian navy do this*7" It would take  many years to build a havy' We  would have to get tacilities. which w*>  do not af present possess We would  have to get the men to build and the  men to man them 'Both of which aie  almost impossible except by years of  training The��������� expense would be prodigious compared with what It. could  be done in the 01dvLand Then aie .ve  anxtous to be a independent nation >  1 think tun, SOrae may, but not those  ��������� ��������������� '  ��������� -  who have oliee giasped the full sig-  nificance of the impeiiallstic vision  What then can we say but that if  should be dnect u>ntlibation9 Not  .{hen ah an act of chaiity, but corc-  11United, as oui .Just poition ot the  4ieat biuden of the Bntish ta\paye.
