HERE AND THERE  l(  U  b*i  ft  Several matters of very groat moment to the city and its future have received the attention ol* tho City Council /luring the past week. The subject which takes .precedence of all  others in importance, is, of course.  "False Creek  Improvement."  The Harbor Improvement committee have deci-.led to deal with the  Great Northen railway along the lines  laid down in their proposition"to the  City Council last year. It is, however, '.worthy of not, that thi.s was not.  clone without a difference of opinion  of at least one of the Committee; Aid.  Stevens introduced a resolution stating that, it was to the best interests of  the City that all tlie .remaining portion of the bed of False Creek should  be retained by the city, and not one  foot permanently alienated. Also that  the City-'.undertake a comprehensive  plan of improvement with a view to  giving accommodation to all incoming  railways and making provision as well  for industries. This motion was  lost in. committee.' but in our opinion  this course should have been adopted.  The CI i eat Northern now have ample  land for yards, holding something like  sixty acres on False Creek, which includes the south and easterly shores,  and to give them the northerly lore-  she re is simply to place within their  power adsoiule control of the most valuable asset that the City at present  possesses.  Once this arrangement is completed  >\ith the railway company .all hope ol  Public control will be lost forever. Ii  may be that the company could de-  velope this in a better manner and  more expeditiously than the City, but  that is also an open question, in any  case-if the Council'were large- enough  in'*,'isioii. Ii is" possible to do this development work as a Public undertaking.  It should be remembered that the  Great Northern employ only Japs.  They bring all supplies from Seattle.  Their monopoly of the situation will  be absolute and permanent.  We also wish to protest against  meetings held in camera. This matter  has had sufficient publicity now. to  warrant that all negotiations should be  in public. The alleged meeting held  Wednesday, evening was not a meeting of the Committee as we have it  ) on good authority that at least one  member of the Committee was excluded, even although the said member  made personal enquiries at the City  Hall regarding the meeting. It is  perhaps Only a coincident that this  member hias" differed from the "chairman in some of the matters discussed.  We have a right, at least, to demand  that matters of such importance a'S1  this should be discussed by the whole  >������ committee.���������  j j *    *   *  A resolution was introduced into  Council, Monday, approving of the  Mayor's efforts to raise the standard  of Hotels in this City. Alderman Stevens and "Maepherson, brought in this  resolution, which shou'd receive the  heartiest endorsation of the Public.  Where any person undertakes to muzzle the expressions of those in public  | oflice, such as the Mayor. Commis-  ''! sioners and Aldermen, it is about time  the Public gave these persons to understand that such things would not  be tolerated. We hail with highest  I approval and commendation these ef-  Ik forts to deal with moral as well as  1> material  interests of our City .  An effort is being made to limit the  \5ighest of buildings in the City to  Il20 feet, and not more than 10 stories.  I*An amendment to the Building by-law  'was introduced to Council last. It met  [ considerable opposition and was referred to the building committee to  f report to next meeting  This matter should receive the most  careful consideration of the Public and  fbhoiild not be allowed to go down to  ule fet because a few citizens who are  Idefect because a few citizens who are  {wish   it  and  influence  the  council in  sts  decision.    We   ask  the   public  to  consider this important question from  levery -standpoint and give the Alder-  f.nen   introducing   this   measure   their  |?������pport.    In  the first place  buildings  lover   10 stories  will* exclude sunlight  frin ur streets.    Sunlight is the best  Igerm  exleminator  known  to science.  h  If will also mean that a large majority of those working in offices, etc., will  do so in a twilight or by artificial light.  You know it* that is.healthy or not. We  have no street. In this city which can  accommodate'the- trafllce If both sides  of it had unlimited skyscrapers.  Hence profit from the experiences of  ot'hT'r cities, which are to-day struggling with this great problem of trans  portaiion. It will also militate against values generally. Concentrating  t.he.> values in a comparatively small  centre. We have room, let our business spread out and not. keep it iu a  state of congestion. Think this over  and act. The Building Committee  meets at 3 p.m. Monday. April 4th, and  is open to the Public.  ��������� Some of the residents n Eleventh  avenue, between Westminster road and  Westminster avenue are wondering  what state their block will be in when  tjie^grading on the avenue is finished.  At"'present Eleventh from Sophia to  Westminster..'road*--takes a drop of  about ten fee or moie, and now it  looks as though the othei; end of the  block will take a slope at the avenue-. With street cars now on Westminster road as well as the avenue  it is believed that it won't be long  before the 200 block on Tenth aid  Eleventh will becme business streets.  and that while the present grading  is going on Eleventh avenue should  be. fixed up as a business street and  not as a knoll.  A petition has been drawn .up and  circulated by property owners along  Broadway asking the < ity council to  block pave the .street t'ropi -Ontario  yo7-S������mX.

Editor Western Call,���������I have been  informed that the press of the mainland is stating that the Metropolitan  church contemplates having lady ushers to take up the collection. Such an  idea has never been mooted either by  pastor or officials of this church and is  a pure fabrication.  If you have reference to this report  in your remarks in last week's issue  of The Call will you please give an  emphatic denial to the report, and  oblige.  Yours truly.  T. E. IIOI-UNG.  VANCOUVEK, British Columbia, APRIL 1, 1910.  No. 477  IMOCALCONSERVATIVE  " ORGAN ""  Hon.  Carter-Cotton   May  Get  Finance  Minister Portfolio.  According to reliable information  ��������� i-oni Victoria, the old .and tried official  Conservative organ of this citv is to  pass into the control of S. H. Matson  of the Colonist, Victoria. The'Hon'  Carter-Cotton has been the chief proprietor of this paper for something  over twenty years, ami is recognized^  as the lest editorial writer iii' the  Province. .-.".  Rut.the most significant feature of  tlus change is ihe statement that Hon  Carter-Cotton is to receive the- portfolio of Financial Minister left vacant  by the resignation of Hon. Capt Tat-  low last fall. The Hon. W. J. Bowser  has been holding down the Finance  Ministership, as well as that of Attorney Genera) It has been the most  difficult problem that the Premier ha.  had, to deal wilh, because of the nu.  l,iei,0i,!,������*?I,|ica������;s fpr the office. . In  fact the Government was enabled to  keep their cumbersome majority well  in line7ali last session by simply, in-  forming the tliirty-tour individual'applicants that if they did not behave  they- would belieft.-* out, and it worked  i^"11:1^- 5^h>"|������l1>!ic;7hoWever;-wfi-'l  ^! T^1'71h<t������l't>est approval the rumored appointment of the Hon. Carter-  Cotton.' There is no more able and  conscientious mem hereof the Govern  ment in this ��������� Province." and lie is also  recognized as an authority on financial matters.  Acording to the testimony given before the executive committee at Victoria last week by .las. Brown and  William Ash, old-time residents of.D  1-. 301, the Ii. C. Electric Railway,  through their representative, Mr.  Glover, agreed that if the residents of  301 would not oppose their application  to the Government for running rights  in this district, they (the B. C. Electric) would guarantee to have the  franchise expire simultaneously with  that of the City of Vancouver, viz.,  1918. This generous. arrangement induced the residents of that district to  agree and hence, when in 1908 the application was made, there:'was no opposition and the franchise was granted-  This is not all. The Railway Act  demands that all franchises be limited.  When the B. C. Electric made their application, there being no opposition,  the Government immediately granted  the request and; allowed the company's  legal representative to draw the agreement. This agreement was signed as  a matter of form by the Minister of  Lands at that time, the Hon. Mr. Fulton; but Imagine the chagrin and surprise of the Government when over a  year afterward they find they had  sgined an agreement which had not  inserted in it the time-limit clause. Of  course it cannot be said that this was  deliberately done by the company's  legal representative, who drew the  document, but it is certainly a remarkable coincident that that same lawyer  should claim that that particular document gave the company a perpetual  franchise.  The public interest should iw. paramount in all matters of this kind, and  it is the purpose of this periodical  to persistently point out the various  outrages perpetrated against the interest of the public by great companies  holding these  valuable  franchises.  We demand a "square deal" in this  flatter, free from subterfuge and quibble. The executive at Victoria have  promised to give us one: we will,  herefore, patiently await developments.  PROF.

In brief, the history of an  accident (?) whicii occurred in Iroquois Hotel this week. It is simply  another victim to the accursed liquoi  and the avarice of man. Amel Skib  ben's aged mother expected him to at  rive home this week, but instead will  receive the sad intelligence that hei  son was cut off in the prime of lite tin-  honored, unmourned, a dispised victim of modern civilization's legalized  curse. Our law demands that no man  who is intoxicated shall be served with  liquor, yet according to the alleged  .statement of the proprietor of the  hotel where Skibbens got the drink  which murdered him. he <Skibbons>  had been drinking freely and was intoxicated when he arrived at tbe Iroquois hotel. Here he waB served  wilh more liquor, in spite of his helpless condition and in bold defiance of'  the law. He fell asleep leaning on the  bar. The barkeeper, we are told, Icind-  y shook him to awaken him. but he  fell to the floor.  It is remarkable how men get the  habit of falling to the floor in bar,  rooms when a bar-keeper happens to  look at them or gently touches them.  It is also remarkable and highly commendable how kind and solicitous  these riame bar-keeps are to these unfortunate creatures (according to their  statements, at least). In any case  Skibbens is dead, and a coroner's jury  will have to decide what caused his  death. Whatever their verdict may  be. one thing is certain, the primary  cause is the legalized drink curse,  next is the habitual defiance of the  laws by licensed hotel proprietors ot  their employees. The license board  has suspended the license of the Iroquois Hotel pending a thorough investigation. Who. though, will carry  any solace to the aged mother off at  Oreen Bay. Wisconsin, whosp mother  ! heart is yearning for her boy.  An order-in-conncil has been passed  it Ottawa declaring that all immigrants entering Canada must have at  east $25 in cash if arriving in sum  uer and double that amount if arriving in winter.

R. here regarding  .Villiam Macken'/ie having joined the  'maid of the Hudson's Bay company,  lis secretary thinks there is nothing  in  it.  It is reported that Messrs. J. I...  Loupheed and (Sooderich, who are the  well-known brokerage tl r m of  Lougheed & Co., have dissolved part-'  netship. Mr. Gooderich carrying on  the business. Mr. I.oughoed may take  over the position as manager for the  Imperial  Investment Co.  IF YOUR  BUSINESS IS  NOT WORTH  ADVERTISING !  ADVERTISE  IT FOR SALE  The City Temple may be crowded, out of curiosity to hear of this god,  or of some other god (for Campbell has~ many with which he juggles.); or  just to hear a man talk strange words. In any case he gives them husks, and  from his later ravings, evidently is feeding on this very unwholesome provender  himself. .  On page 12 he says: "Religion is man's response to the call of the  iniverse." Ah! So! What is that? A truly simple religion; simple enough  for any simpleton! Surely a "New Theology" is heeded, and Campbell is'  iust the man to produce one of a suitable character.  "The call of the universe" is good.    Yea, serily!    So far I have'never  heard it.    Lightning flashed!    I stare at it!    Religion!    Thunder crashes!    J  rape at it!    Religion!    Earthquake smashes!    J shudder at it!    Religion:'  Cyclones destroy!    Humanity   is afraid!     Religion!      Pctilence ravages!  Mankind groans!    Religion.    Trees wave, winds roar, torrents rush, birds0  sing, planets shine, moons wax and wane,  and the whole universe moves  through its never eliding changes.    Man wonders, fears, sees, hears, feels, is7  sad. glad, hopeful and fearful.    Religion.    The dog bites.    Man is wounded.  Religion!    The horse kicks, boy dies!    Religion!  No man but a blank idiot pantheist could seriously make the statement  that^.'Religion is man's response to the calLof-,the..uhiverse.",.:.,^^^^.'--^.,,.-,.--,--^-..,-^  If he tell truth, then the universe is god.    Pantheism is extenso!  Again, on page 12 he says: "Jesus held the key to the riddle of existence."  Did Jesus hold the key and not use it? Not give it to the, world?  Not unlock the door leading to the solution? Not solve the riddle?-  "Jesus held the key!" What good was the key? To hold ihe key  and not use tt was a most vexing, irritating and useless performance, for  Campbell tells us thai Jesus did not use it. did not solve the riddle, did not  even unlock the door, and gave absolutely) no clue of Cod His father. I do  not misrepresent the author. Here are his words. (See page 5.): "77ic  New Theology holds that n>e f(now nothing, and can know nothing, of the  Infinite Cause whence all things proceed, except as we read Him in His  universe and in our own souls." If true, then Jesus either did not hold the  key, or, if so, he did not use it.  Agains. page 12:    "When I say God. I mean power it  (the power) is myself.'*    This simply means God is myself.    This again is  ultra pantheism.  This, with the preceding quotation, places the author clearly as a teacher  of pantheism. He asks: "How can there be anything in the universe outside  of God?"  There is. therefore, no sin, no good, no erring, no use of a lot of pulpit  oratory. No New Theology! No. City Temple. No word-making Campbell!    All a dream!���������since nothing outside of God exists.  What are the pantheistic asses braying about, if there is nothing in the  ���������iniverse but God? On page 32 he says: "The universe visible and invisible  ���������s consciousness/'    This is a remarkable sort of pantheistic dogmatism.  I look out of my window and see an old fir slump. It is visible! A bit  of the visible universe, therefore a bit of "consciousness." An old sardine  tin!     Consciousness!  [ see a little child, a black dog. a moving electric tram car. some stones,  a man with a yellow paint pot, a wood pile, a beef man's waggon box. a  manure heap, two men looking for lots, a woman with a baby in a perambulator, and several other phenomena. All are visible parts of the universe,  therefore all are bits of consciousness.    Surely some public teachers are fools!  Now let us look at the other side of his definition. He says the "universe  invisible is consciousness."  I do not see Campbell, the City 1 emple. the Kaiser of Germany or the  Siberian salt mines. To me they are bits of the invisible universe, therefore  they are bits of consciousness.  I do not see magnetism, heat, sound, pain, or space. These surely are  bits of the invisible universe, and as such are bits of consciousness. Now let  me fairly set out Campbell's real position.    He says:    "God is the universe."  "God is power. Piat power is myself."     "The universe is consciousness."  All these are statements made by him.  Hence the following are logical conclusions.     Myself is. power, is God.

EAST OF US  ;NOT A CASE OF THEFT  Foxwarren, Man.���������Before "Magistrates O'Keefe and Laycock, Joseph  VVrigget was tried for stealing a pump,  the property of the Canadian Pacific  Railway company. The prosecution  called five witnesses, whl'e four testi-  !ied for the defence. It appears that  .Wrigget took the pump only to empty  his well of surface water and not with  the intention of depriving the railway  company of any of their property. The  ~ase was dismissed with all costs  against the prosecution.  V ^  EXPERT OPTICIAN  DRIVER INJURED AT COAL CREEK  Fernie. B. C���������Simon Ivy, employed  ���������at No. 5 mine.

C, BISHOPRIC  Regina.���������The article inthe last issue  of the Central Catholic, with reference  to the "Regina bishopric, is taken here  to indicate very clearly that the German Catholics are making a strong bid  for the appointment of a German  bishop.. A local paper regards it as  equivalent to the announcement that  the appointment will go to Father Suf-  fa, the local parish priest. This, however, is not credited in the best informed circles. It is known that Archbishop Langevin strongly favors the  appointment of a French-Canadian,  but it is believed that the German  clergy are also pressing their claims.  It is possible that his grace's visit  here last week may have teen for the  purpose of reaching an agreement i;i  the matter.  HARROWING AND SEEDING  Alameda, Man.���������Quite a number of  the farmers in this district have started harrowing, and one started sowing  on the 14th.

THS WESTERN CALL, VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  Ocean  v. ���������*.  ft"  a i  The finest panorama opens out to view  from this point.  Northwest the eye rests upon the Delta  country and Lulu Island, the farms, etc.,  which lie almost at water level, are spread'  out in full view. Beyond this, the tree-  lined Fraser flows to the sea,, and South  Vancouver height is seen, with the smoke  of Vancouver city rising from behind. Beyond again, Grouse Mountain and Bowen  Island bounds the view.  Westward/beyond the shimmering waters  of the Gulf, lie the islands of the Sound,  hind them all on clear days the magnificent  and behind them the backbone of Vancouver  Island. South and south-westward,: the  Sound stretches out in full view, with the  islands and mainland promintories, and be-  sweep of the Olympian Mountains in Washington territory.    v-  Eastward, the west slope of .the coastline  is overtopped and glorified by the snowclad  cone of Mount Baker.  Is of good quality and slopes gently from  the cliff upwards to the highest point of the  promintory, the flat top of which forms the  recreation ground reserve \ of the property.  So. gentle and uniform is the sweep of the  slope, keeping in line with the semi-circular  sea front of the property, that it.appears to.  have been made for the purpose in hand.  It is proposed to make this property, naturally so well situated for the purpose, into a  residential park on the Chataqua-principal.  This is the first attempt to meet the demand for a rallying place for Christian societies in their conventions and summer  schools, and cannot be duplicated for beauty  and surrounding conveniences, of grounds and  accessibility to all the Coast and Sound  cities and towns.  A program is in course of preparation for  the coming season.  Good clean athletics will be stimulated  and encouraged.  In order to improve tlie property, erect a  pavilion, and beautify the park, fifty per  cent, of the proceeds of the sale price of the  lots has been donated by the original holders,  together with a further donation by one of  the promoters of ten thousand dollars.  They have already transferred their full  rights and titles to trustees, who have, covenanted  to hold  the same in trust  for; the; ;  purpose for which it is intended.  The property has been subdivided, according to the plan shown in the folder, into two  parks for recreation and pavilion purposes,  together with suitable streets and 50-foot residential lots.  Proper safeguards have been made to prevent the alienation of any portion of this  property from the purposes as set forth above.  4,^^^>.,������J..,..������.^l.������.(ri.������...?..^.J.������..J.������.:>.������.>>-������-!^:i>-������������i>������,^������'������������*'-*-'S>  * ' ���������'������������������"���������''���������*���������-  i ���������      . ���������      ���������     y  !������        Groat     Maiuifaetnriiig,  Railway,    .<&  - <   <- v ���������   y  Lumber.

You  are very likely standing, sitting and  walking in.,a relaxed frame of mind  and bedy. This means drooled  shoulders, crouching in the chair  when you should be sitting, or pounding the heeis along if you are walking. Life is one long fight of doing  things that are difficult, so it takes  attention to keep the lungs rilled out;  the head held up, having, our backs  straight and the hips of the same  height. An old fashioned exercise of  walking about a room with a book  balanced on the head, is a simple and  effective practice in poise. Tue chin  should be held in and the weight  should rest on the balls of the feet.  A graceful, dignified carriage invariably means a gracious, self-controlled  woman, for when the head is up the  body ������������������revived :with\ good wholesome  air, a sort^of good feeling all around  permeates the body and petty annoyances assume, their proper places  It's impossible to be irritable when  one is comfortable;  ���������   *    *   .*  The bigger'the new hats are. the  more there is to get wet.

Skirts lor street wear show  the yoke stitched to hip depth, and  the plain -pleated .skirt usually has  a panel or some bauds or buttons to  make it look complicated. Queer  things, anyhow, are always interesting, even in skirts. Several of the  new   linen   cents   have   embroidered  bands of self-colored silk or floss,  with sometimes a metal thread among  the stitches. One smart tailor is using tiny pipings of some  bright col-  ,or in finishing these'costumes.  ���������*.**'���������'  A handsome blue cloth gown that  was recently shown has collar and  belt embroidered with rather coarse  silk in dull mat green, old gold and  red.  ."'���������������������������*   *   *  Collars continue dear���������only those  shown in the shops are so cheap���������  that it does not pay to make them.

The problem which has arisen is  whether the Washington Government  shall, or shall not, take up "an advanced antagonistic attitude." That  problem is for the Washington Government to deal with. By the provisions of the Payne-Aldrich traiff  legislation, it rests with the President  to decide whether or not this country  comes under the operation of the maximum schedule in that legislation. If  the President decides that it does, no  Advertising Tariff  _=J|t andlast,pages_^e perinch  Other pages 25c per inch  transient Ads to arrange    for   legislative action at Washington will  lodge and Church Cards $10.00 j be necessary to bring the maximum  7 ner Vear 1dutice irrto operation against imports  Birth,   Marriages   and Deaths   'rem' this country���������which would mean,  ������free  MAINTAINING   OUR   COMMERCIAL  * INDEPENDENCE.  as the New York Times shows, "considerably more than double the present, average duties on dutiable goods  imported from Canada." But tbe  President and his advisers have divers  i������ dispatch, from    Washington  cubing   the .taiiS   situation   between jand' sundry   reasons  of great  weight  thisr country  and  the   1'nited   States. ���������  afte]f setting forth the serious reasons j  why President Taft ami Speaker Can-  noirfand the Republican  Party do not . comp!.eh(,nsiVeiy says:  want a "tariff war" with Canada, says!  -T The ground taken by Canada is fa  miliar  to  the  American  Government,  ! since it is precisely the ground, it has  itself   taken   in   tariff   disputes   with  and importance for being exceedingly  I averse to doing anything of tbe sort.  i  !    The New York Times, in a article  which    reviews    tlie whole    situation  that' "diplomatic resources v,i;l be exhausted in the effort to avert it," and  vi.ids up with the declaration that  "both Governments must eventually  recede from their advanced antagonistic positions so as to reach an amicable adjustment" ��������� a declaration  whi*h is singularly inept and discloses  a complete failure to understand the  real point at issue. So far as concerns  Canada, the question is simply one of  European Governments. It is that the  j tariff reductions made in a conrnierci'i'.  treaty cannot be regarded as favors to  the country receiving -them, but are  strictly reciprocal and are com^ensat-  deed, in view of the conditions prevailing in our trade with Canada, it  may reasonbly be held that to apply  the maximum tariff would itself be a  discrimination by the President against  his own people."  Says the Boston Herald:  "Xoth withstanding the construction  of the maximum and minimum schedules of the Payne-Aldrich tariff law,  the minimum schedules now in effect  are the general tariff law of this-country. The maximum schedules are a  penalty to be imposed for undue discrimination against our products. The  minimum schedules contain no concession to other countries from pre  viously established schedules and already have been extended to a larg*.  part of the world without concessions  in return. Canada's general tariff law  applies to 1't.ited Sstates products.  There is no direct discrimination  -gainst the United States. Preferential trade agreements exist with Gieat  Brit:, in, but these are exempted from  he ban of the maximum clause. A  reciprocity treaty'���������has been arranged  -.vith France and the duties thus established apply to a. number of othe:  nations entitled to most favored nation  treatment, by virtue of agreements  made with the Brr.ish Government  and now binding on the Dominion.

February 4th, 1810.  HOUSEHOLD HINTS  * The white of an egg, slightly beaten,  and the crushed shell of an egg is  enough to clarify a quart of strained  soup. Stir the soup constantly after  adding the egg and shell, let it bci!  hard for a few minutes, set on the  backj of. the range to settle, and then  strain.  When it is desired to carry a candle  into a drafty cellar or    attic    where  there is danger of it blowing out or  setting  the  clothes  on  fire,    a  short  candle should be placed in a tumbler,  being fastened there by its own wax.  It will then burn steadily and safely.  Bananas are rarely found    in-   this  country ripe enough to be digestible.  although  they may  be  perfectly  yel-  ow.   To properly ripen them so that  hey   v,i 1   be excellent food, buy    a  bunch and hang it up in a dry place  with the stem in water.   In   a   few  days it will be much improved.  A piquant salad dressing may be  made of sour milk or cream. Take the  yolk of a hard-boiled. egg and rub it  mtil it is quite smooth. Then add  lalf a cupful of sour cream and a ta-  ���������jlespoonful of vinegar with sufficient  :alt, pepper and sugar to overcome  .ny unpleasant taste of the cream.  To make beeswax, place the honey-  oomb in a coarse muslin bag and put  n a small stone to weight the consents. Put into a kettle, cover with  >vater and boil. The wax comes to the  op of the water and the sediment re  uiainy at the bottom of the kettle.  When he water is allowed to cool, the  wax form a solid cake.  Before winter clothes are pat away  he skirts should be most    carefully  crushed and cleaned, for if dust ana  msifhtly spots are allowed to remain  u them for several months they will  erlously injure the fabric.   It is much  more difficult to clean garments after  .hey have been stored than before.  White Fruit Cake���������One cup buttei  creamed, one and one-half cups sugar,  three eggs beaten light, one cup milk  four cups flour, one cup raisins, one  cup currants, one cup sliced candied  onwge peel, one saltspoon salt, one.  teaspoon soda, two teaspoons   cream  tartar, one teaspoon almond, one-half  teaspoon   lemon.    Bake  one  hour  in  slow oven.    This  recipe is  for    two  large loaves'.   Wrapped ia wax paper  it will keep a long time.  Nut>.Meat Loaf���������One-half cup chopped or ground pecans, the same ot  walnut meats, one cup dried bread oi  cracker crumbs, one egg is required,  two is an improvement. One tablespoon melted butter. Wet the crumb*  with milk and as the crumbs soak adc  ���������nore milk if necesary. It should be s  ittle too thick to run. Butter well i  small bread pan. Turn iu the mixture  after stirring well and ���������cover with dot*  >f butter. Bake in a roasting oven t>  half hour. Cut in slices and serve hot  "or next day fry slices and cover witl  thickened and strained juice from i  can of tomatoes. Sliced cold anij  served with creamed potatoes maket-  a good combination. All walnut meats  makes the roast a trifle dry, but can  be used if pecans are too expensive.  CANADIAN AND GENERAL  Sixty prominent Pittsburg citizens  have been, warned by the district attorney's office to appear in court and  confess their connections with the  charges of graft made against members of the city council on penalty of  being prosecuted.  Brakeman Campbell and Fireman  Ford weie killed when a C.P. R. engine plunged off a bridge into Goat  river, in the Crow's Nest Pass. Engineer Carson was fatally Injured and  is dying in the Nelson Hospital.  Engineer Connely, of St. Paul, and  Baggageman Smith, of Minneapolis,  were killed when the Winnipeg flier  on the Great Northern was derailed  Sunday afternoon near Roger, Minn.  Fourteen passengers were injured but  none seriously.  The railway commission has overruled the objection of the eastern publishers against the new tariff submitted by tbe telegraphic companies. The  ruling declares the fiat-rate basis to be  ;t violation of the Railway act and it  therefore must be abandoned.  Engineer Attwood of the Hudson's  lay & Pacific Railway company, in an  interview  at Prince Rupert, declares  bat survey work will be commenced  v.t once and that    construction    will  eminence in the near future.  The elevator committe of the Grain  Growers' aasociaii-.n, at a meeting appointed a committee of three to confer  . ith the government as to the details  >t the public elevator scheme.  It was announced in the House   ol'  'ommons-at Ottawa that the   militia  epartment would purchase a new rifle  ange in close proximity to the city of  Winnipeg.  v Colonel Ruttan was presented with  his portrait in oils bythe city engineer's department of which he has been  the bead for 25 years.  fcor LAYING  FOWL and  I-H1CKENS call  L.

PLUCKY   RESCUE   OF    CREW   OF  SINKING SHIP IN MEDITERRANEAN.  (From our own correspondent.)  An incident, which is a splendid illustration   of that  peculiar  pluck   for  which British seamen are noted, happened  recently in  the  Mediterranean,  when Caj)t. Percy Harraclough. master  of the  SS. .le.ssie of Hartlepool,  succeeded   in   rescuing   the   crew  of   the  Kingswell of Newcastle,    which    was  completely  wrecked  and   rapidly sink-  ,ing. her fires having been washed out  hours   previous.     Tlie   Kingswell   was  en  route from tlie Grecian Islands to  Middlesbrough   with   a   cargo   of  iron  ���������>re, and struck a succession of heavy  ;a!es and sprung a leak and was in a  iriiiv lamentable condition.

Sask..    11 arch    15.��������� I  Lloydminster district is one of the lat-!  est  examples of  r  ecoid  making.    It;  churns the record, this year, of having j  won   more  prizes  at  seed  grain  fairs |  than anv other one district in either of i  the provinces of Saskatchewan or Al- j  berta.   It further claims ihe record for I  having won   more  prizes in  grain    in  one year at provincial seed grain fairs j  than  have ever before  been  won.   in !  any one year by any place or district j  'f'lin either of these two provinces.  This  vjis a very strong claim  but it  can  be  *,  substantiated.     As   Lloydminster   district  is  divided   by  the   fourth  initial  meridian, it is, as a consequence, partly in the province of Alberta and partly in Saskatchewan.    In this way it is  <?  entitled  to enter all the competitions  ������i������!iii   farm   products  held   in   Edmonton.  J, ithe capital of Alberta, and in Retina.  fj the capital    of  Saskatchewan.    Many  '    prize's  have been   won   by the   Lloydminster  district in  standing  feds  o'  grain, and   Smith  &    Rac'r.uua    have i  i  just added another to the long :isi woi.  by their farm, by taking at the Brandon fsir the second prize for Prestoi  wheat in 'a competition open to any  variety, their exhibit (t>(J lbs.i only  missing first prize by a half print, the  scores being 91Va -first prize, 91 second. In these seed-grain fairs- there  are hundreds of districts competing,  many of them with experience of  twenty years' forming, and . districts  where the farms are ten to one compared to Lloydminster district, which  was only settled six y ears ago. It is  a" marvelous record this district has  made for grain production and a  matchless one in a period of time si  brief.  PROF.

Ah!!      Alas!      Yea,  verily!     Rather verily nay! . %       .   ���������  On page 32 he says the following: "I shall not cease to be I, nor  you to be you." Wonderful! He says the universe is god. Where then  :an come in "I" or "You"? But as myself is God and all is God, it must  follow that you and I are one.  But let me quote more fully: "I shall not cease to be I, nor you to be  you; but there must be a region of experience where we shall find that you  and I are one." Must there? Nonsense! "I being I and you being you  without ceasing;" and "You and I be;ng one" may be all right for words,  for speculation and for mental acrobatic tomfoolrics. but no good for every  day ordinary sense. Is a man sane, ar.d if sane, is he honest, who so juggles  with words and human minds? And the City Temple pays Campbell a big  salary.  On page 34 we find t'irse words: "The spirit we can neither make nor  mare, for it is at ence our being and Cod's being." Here is pure pantheism,  dogmatism, and loiromachic foolism.  What an idiol a man must be who preaches, teaches" and blatheratcs  '.limself hoarse to make men and women better, while he tells them "ive can  either make nor mar the spirit!" ~.-. ��������� ���������  If no man can mar his spirit, or mar; the spirit, of another, and if we  >y no means can improve or make the spirit, why in the name of folly and  visdem prate about these things? A man who so prates is dishonest and a  hief. He in the name of religion steals the money" of those who imagine he  s honest, and at heart a������������������Christian.    There are monstrous quacks!'  These  "New  Theology"  blatherskites  are the curse of students  and  hinke'rs of the present age.    They manage to clothe;their ideas and follies in  ine language, with  a considerable admixture  of'Bible  quotations, and of  modern Christian phrases.    In this way they gull the unthinking, silly public.  Since we can "neither make nor mar" self, smcc self is Cod, what good on  arth or in the City Temple; or in his New Theology, or, in his mad ravings,  s there in Campbell's vapourings? 7. ;  He may say, and his admirers may join in saying:    Odium does not  understand Campbell, does not grasp his meaning.    So let him!    Soviet them.  [ do understand the English language perfectly, and I understand Campbell  as well as he understands himself, making his book the index to his meaning.  When he tells me he is Cod, I sav he is a fopL   Perhaps he .won't admit  this!    If so, I could quite understand him, even then. ,77f77:;"7V  On page 34 he says:    "We are here to grow the soul," ancf7bn-the  ame page he says the soul is "consciousness."     Therefore' i������e are :fteife7to  rpT������ consciousness.    But on a preceding page he informs us that the universe  > consciousness.    Therefore we are here to grow the universe.    Bosh!    And  He, Campbell, who says we can neither make nor mar the spirit which is I,  Giod, consciousness, the universe, says we are here to grow thesbuK  Utterly meaningless statements! And yet the City Temple feeds nim,  pplauds him. Yea, worships him! Ard why should they not.worship him?  le says he is god; and they seem to believe him.  Page 35: "Pantheism is a Fate-God, a god imprisoned in His uni-  erse." Not so! This is Fatalism pure and simple. The teaching of  ^antheism is that God is the universe; rot that he is "imprisoned in the uni  erse." Two very different teachings. In one teaching, God and the universe  \re two separate things; in the other, Go;l is the universe only one thine, being.  r existence. The author of The New Theology does not understand  Pantheism, his pet fettish!  Page 35. "God is my deeper F������lf." Surely my deeper .self is "my  sal se If. Therefore God is my real self. . God is I in simple terrhs/ Sam?  Id pantheism! And when Campbell snys he is God, he means he is IT, and  is whole line of life, of late, proves he has. a sort of notion that he is mort  han earthborn man.    He is no "worm" at ail events.  On pa������re 42 we read:    "The diffr ence between finite and infinite is not}  vrr--'"     ^osh!     I* the finite be district from the infinite now, then it is  eternally distinct!    If at any moment, in all time, it is not distinct then never  '���������stinct.    A cubic inch of space, if now distinct from space, is eternally so!  Tf not now, never so.    A straight line ������~n inch long, if distinct now from an  nfinite straight line, is eternally so; if not now, never so..' ��������� .  {f a second of time be distinct from all time, then ever so; if not now,  never so.  S** in "������"ieral:     If nnv finite be   tow. or ever,  distinct from the corresponding infinite then it is always distinct; if not now. then never distinct.  Finally, in abstract and absolute terms, if finite- be at any moment district from infinite, then eternally so; and if not now, then never so.  Campbell  talks  incomprehensible   rubbish,   and  shows  himself  utterly  unfit to write upon any great and impo'tant subject.    Look at the following  -���������onsense:    He saysj on page 43:   -'Evil is- a negative, term. ��������� It denotes the  bsence rather than the presence of some thing."    Ignorance, folly or dishonesty in this crude, false statement.  I presume he would say evil is th'- absence of goodness. And in turn  T would say goodness is the absence of evil.  Love is the absence of hate and hate is the absence of love.  Crookedness is the absence of strai^htness and straightness, is the absence  of crookedness.    Wonderfully clever!    Is crooked a negative term?    Not so!  Therr are as positive dualities in the crooked as in the straight.  What is a straight line?    One that is not crooked.    And what is a  rooked line?     Why,  one that is not rtraight.     This is a "negative term"  lefinition that ought to suit even Campbell!    Any ordinary school boy knows  'hat the negative belongs as much to any one thing or state as its antithesis.  All that is negative to one thing or state is positive to its antithesis. In  his s������"������e evil is negative, as also is eoi Jncss its antithesis.  Page 44:     "Evil is not being good.    Good is being."    Word jupgling  ere!    "A" murders "B" to ������t his mr.ney.    The murder act is "evil." and  therefore, it is "not-being."    If this ill>rtration suit not. let Campbell or one  f his admirers give a suitable concrete ������xample of evil.    Perhaps he would  -ay he cannot do so, because evil is "no-being," i.e.. non-being, non-existent,  nothing.    Why, then, does he spend his l:me talking about nothing?  The murderer does not perform an evil act if evil be not-being, nonexistent. He may juggle the City Temple, which seems to be composed of  rvord-ivorshippers.  Asrain. on page 44: "Infinity! alne can know nothing of evil." My  ;nk bottle knows nothing of evil. Is it therefore, infinity���������or rather a very  finite thins? When did infinity) tell Campbell that it is ignorant of evil?  Whirh infinity? Infinity of space, of time, distance, matter, force. Mind, or  absolute infinity? Which one of all these ever informed Campbell that ii  slone was ignorant of evil? Now, as per Campbell, if the infinite of space be  ignorant, the infinite of time is cognisant of evil. Will Campbell tell us how  time kiows anything of evil, good or aught else?  If he mean mind,  God, by "infinity." then He, God, is ignorant or  :vil, while my ink bottle is not thus  ignorant,  for God is infinite and mj  ink bottle is finite.     If the "Infinite alone can fcnon> nothing of evil," dier  God. tne infinite, has no knowledge of evil, while my ink bottle is well posted  But I suspect Campbell really means God is all. and therefore all H������  j does is rig^it. and therefore there is nb evil, and therefore He knows no evil.  j and since He is all. and there is none other.    He alone knows no evil.    Ther  j "hy   does  the  author  of  the  New    Theology  prate?     Why  not  shut  up?  i Suppose I say of him he is a fool-gabbler, would 1 not tell the truth, since  ���������I all that reopens is. of God. and there is no evil, no falsehood?    Why no*  j tell him (Campbell) to ?o into nuietude and hide his folly-smitten godhead?  I Since  God  does  all  that   happens,  why  does Campbell  ask  the  City  j Temple to pav him for what God does, and for what would be done without  i him?    He tells them he can't improve them, and yet asks pay.    He tells them  i there is no evil, and asks pay for helping them to do good, though they could  I do nothing else.    He tells them there is nothing but God and then asks money  for telling them he can make them better. : But since ihey are God, he asks  (Continued next week)  - ; J  W. H.
