THE YEAR 1909  Exploration.  The year IW.l will forever be famous  in the annals of scientific accomplishment as having witnessed the success-  till culmination of the age-long quest  for the North Pole; and the achievement of Commander Robert E. Peary  of the Uniteil States navy in finally  reaching this theoretical .-point, at the  dome of the world, after twenty-three  years of practically uninterrupted eu-  cleavor, wil stand as the most difficult  feat of geographical exploration in the  history of'the.world. It was eminently  lilting that Peary should lie the first  to reach the Pole; for among all the  Arctic explorers he was easily the  first -in practical knowledge and experience. When..'he. announced to the  world en September 5th that en  April. 6th. 1909, he had reached the  coveted goal, his word was accepted  ���������without question. Subsequently his  data was passed upon favorably by the  National Geographic Society of America, which later presented him with  its medal; and the verdict of-this tri-  lunal has been tacitly indorsed by the  vat-iocs learned societies throughout  the world.  ".''Commentingupon the freely-expressed doubts of Dr. Cook's claim that he  also, and a year, earlier, had reached  the North Pole: '"The man who can  look Death full in the face throughout  all the cruel sufferings of a two years'  search for the secret of the frozen  North, is built upon lines too noble to  admit of the slightest subterfuge or  misrepresentation.' It was evidently  with the .same:'' conviction that the  Danish authorities and the Danish people at large acepted Dr. Cook's stupendous claim in a spirit of loyal belief, %yhich appears never to have  wave red'until, the fiasco of the receipt  of his so-caled data by a committee of  the University of Copenhagen. These  petitlemen very quickly jepofted that  Cook's statement was the sanYe as that  printed in a New York newspaper;  that the copy of his notebooks contained "no original astronomical observations whatsoever, but only results:" that the documents presented  were "inexcusably lacking in .'information which would prove that the astronomical observations, therein referred  to were really made:", and that they  contained "no details regarding the  practical work of the expedition and  the sledge journey which would enable the committee to determiue their  reliability."  By this sweeping repudiation of Dr.  Cook's claims; the University of Copenhagen has drawn the final curtain upon  one of the most spectacular -dramas of  audacious imposture in the history of  geographical research.  Second cnly in importance to  Peary's achievement in reaching the  North Pole was Lieut. Shackle ton's  wonderful ������������������ journey in. the Antarctic.  ���������when he succeeded in reaching latitude 8S degrees 2?. minutes south, and  arrived within .11.1 miles of the South  Pole. Shaeldeton passed the very  point reached by Scoit in 1003; pushed  _,,,, for :'.2.". miles and was defeated in  his quest* by hunger, fatigue, sickness  and the loss cf his dogs and ponies.  He discovered eight new and distinct  mountain ranges and over one hundred  mountains, and ascended Mount Erebus, the most southerly volcano. The  south magnetic pole was reached at  T2 degree 25 minutes.  Astronomy,  Photography and  Chemistry.  The   year   1,909  ' is    astronomically  memorable for the return of Halley's  TELEPHONES  It is to be hoped that the government of U. C. will give due consideration to the repeated efforts of the  electorate of the 'Province and lake  over the telephone systems of the Province. Ami we further trust that the  city will not be too hasty in introducing a dual system iii Vancouver,  but will assist in persuading/ the  government to take over the whole  system. We can safely leave this  matter in care of Aid. Stevens, who  has  taken such  a prominent' part  in  BRITISH ELECTIONS  (Continued on  Page 4)  MOUNT  PLEASANT  Up.to-Pate HARDWARE STORE  lllJ-/ lYlADE IN SOOTH BEND KAlNvjL  As TIGHT and SOUND  As a STEAM BOILER  -"-38;'  The British elections are proceeding  with  a  great  deal  of  orderly  excite-  It begins to be apparent that no final  results are to" accrue from the present  elections. The mixed multitude marching under what is termed the Liberal  banner wjll hold a majority aparently  in the new house, but-with a greatly reduced majority.  At   the  present   writing it   appears  famous comet. On September 11th  last. Dr. Max Wolf of Heidelberg dis- introducing the move re Government  covered this historic wanderer upon ownership  me of his photographic plates in almost the exact position which the calculations of C'owell... and Crommelin  'Jailed- for���������a feat which may be re-  ..ardtyl as a triumph of mathematical  -strouoniy. The comet will pass perihelion' oh 'April 20th, and will be, a  conspicuous object in the western-nient.  heavens after sunset about the middle of May, at which time the earth  will . pass through" a portion of the1  comet's tail, and the comet itself will  cross the sun's disk. The reappear-  ���������rice, is therefore of exceptional interest, because it wil give astronomers an  jpportunity of obtaining much valu-  ible information as to the comet's  structure.  The year was further,signalized by  iie discovery ol: another comet by Mr.  Daniel of the Princeton Observatory���������  the third he how has to his credit.  On September 24th, :|J������0J), an opposition of Mars occurred���������the most favorable which astronomers can possibly  have, for another fifteen years^ On  that date the planet was distant 35,-  iOO.OOO miles. Naturally, the old question of Martian habitability wa,s revived. Prof. Pickering, in order to  settle It once and for all, proposed a  method of signaling by mirrors, and  Hot': Wood of John Hopkins University suggested a method of "winking'"  ty means of black cloths on reels.  Neither astronomer 'probably: believes  in ihteligent life on Mars, but was actuated solely by "a desire to close a  wearisome, perennial debate. The  theoiT of habitability defends very  largely upon the presence of water on  Mars: Dr. Canipbell, director of the  l.ick Observatory, made a careful comparison last year of the spectra of the  moon and -Mars.; He found that there  was no appreciable difference between  the two, from which he infers that  Mars must be practically waterless,  and therefore as dead as the Moon.  Mr. Very, of Prof. Lowell's staff, on  the other hand, has arrived at dircetly  epposite conclusion. So far from being decided, the old question is therefore more alive than ever.  "There were two" eclipses of the Sun  and two of the Moon. The lunar eclip^  ses were both total and occurred on  !lime 3rd and November 20th. The  eclipses of the Sun, occurring on June  27th and December 12th. were respectively central and partial.  As might be expected, the radio-active elements still continue to engage  the attention of chemists. Although  ��������� luring the year 1000 no very dramatic  dis covery was made. Ramsay.

Reports of past year were presented  showing the Club to he in a very satisfactory condition.  Aid. Stevens introduced a resolution'  exftvessing approval of the action of  the? Provincial organization in urging  theQovernment to take over the Telephone system of the Province and requesting that the Government take action early and asking that all other  organizations co-operate in an endeavor  to secure   this  end.  A copy was sent to Ihe. Hen. the  Premier, the. local members, other associations,etc. The motion carried  uhannimously.  The folovvingofficers were elected:  .-President, Geo.  H.  Williamson.  First Vice-president,  D.  Hyndnian.  Second Vice-president, D. S. Nixon.  Secretary-Treasurer, D'Arcy Birmingham.  Representative to Central Executive  W. R. Owen.  Mr. E. H.

I  erals combined with the labor element.  But the Irish Nationalists will control  the situation if this continues.  The strength ������f the last house lay  in the fact that the Liberals alone  held "a strong majority in the house and  counted the labor and Irish votes as  auxiliaries. It is evident that any'.majority depending . upon- the auxiliaries  will be uncertain and unable to aceoim  plish drastic work.  But it is probable that the-last half  of the elections wil add to the Unionist strength so that the very life of the  new government will be uncertain, and  another general election shortly probable.

To attack the Lords again, etc.,  will be to try and start a prairie fire  over burned ground. To this lead the  present decadewill scarcely respond  again  with-'much  enthusiasm.  The issues before the country in  England are serious. _ Among them  are:  Tariff Reform  The House of Lords  National Defense.  Irish  Home Rule.  Imperial Organization.  Most of these- questions can afford  to wait for a parliamentary term.  Tariff rel'orni -is^needed. aud.appari  ently is bound- to come./ England;  while loyal to the' ideal of Free Trade,  cannot afford to keep the only free  and open market amongst universally  protected ones. This must spell hunger for her own workers > while she  does.  Not only so, but while Britain's rich  market .is kept free and open among  universally protected ones, it appears  that the hope of general free trade will  never be realized. The animal advantage gained by protected-countries,  dumping their products free of duty  inlo England-is so great that it pays  a high premium on protection. Only  where all countries are alike protected.  ;o that no advantage over a neighbor  ;s leaped, will protection become un-  nrefitable and leave the. way open to  ���������generally lower tariff walls without  saerilk-e.  !!ut whether the thought that to  I'mally remove protection, that pr.nci-  ple must become operative univer.ally  and so become unprofitable is to far  a, cry for the English politician, .the  hunger of the homo ''worker wauling  bread, the wages paid the foreign producer would supply is a present ar.su-  tli'e support of the Club.  - The Club purpose holding    an    at-  iipme in the near future, for which s  committee was ''appointed:.-.

As to its ultimate si/.e. it will be large, thtit much is evident,  how 1 urge, who can tell. There are. however, certain factors which,  if they all come into play will, assure that the population of the city  will be large.  Vancouver's'location' at'the gateway of the West is one factor.  No great inland ..waterway stretches thousands of miles inland to  scatter sea-born traffic among inland cities, as is the case with thft  East Coast. There no single city, can claim to be the ocean terminus. Halifax. St. John. Quebec. Montreal. Toronto. Sarnia, Sault  St. .Marie. Port 'Artliur. Fort William all share in the benefits of '  waterside towns and seaports. Here you touch Vancouver, and the.  water traffic is barred. This is a great advantage. Vancouver lies  at the inner end of tlie ocean passage through .Juan de Fuca straits,  while Vancouver Island, bars free egress and ingress elsewhere near  on the Coast  Vancouver lies on tbe coast line next to the International boundary between Canada and the States, a strategic point of great importance to her. She gets the advantage of sharing in mixed cargoes to  American and Canadian Ports, and in contributing to make up  such cargoes, making a charter market worth competing for by the  best lines. Prince Rupert, .jammed up in the Northwest corner of the  AVesf Canadian,coast can get no such advantage.  Vancouver is the .business centre of a district rich in coal and in  iron, a combination which always develops great iron industries and  markets.:  Six or seven railroad lines are either here-or are coming here,-  making this city one of the greatest collecting and distributing point.*  on the continent.  Vancouver has adjacent to it enormous water-power, suitable for  hydro-electric power.  -:    .These, and other reasons lead us to think that Vancouver mav '  be the first city to totich the million mark in the Dominion.   That is  to say. of course. Vancouver and.adjacent neighborhood. ���������  .,'.-���������.''  Changes will come over"the present city.   The Falseereek development will help this on.    The streets between Hurrard Inlet and  False ('reek  will go into skyscraping, offices and  warehouses, etc.  ������������������Retail...business will, because it must, go south of False Creek.    Its  centre will ' probably ���������'be about' the junction of Westminster avenue  and 'Westminster Road:   Grandview and Fain iew Hast will be near''*  if hot the very heart offhe North I'.nd of the Town.  '.Wise, civic engineering and government   are  needed.    Of this  character, the turning down of.the.Parks' By-law was not wise.  A re-ari-angemeut* of uses to which city real estate is put is now  in  progress and will  continue until -the. change .is. complete years,  hence. ' ., .   '��������� ���������'.  The West End residential district is rapidly changing from the  select home.district to an-apartment block district, and this c.hanire  ii ��������� ���������     _  .-     - _.-���������-.'

The ousting of retail business from Hastings street, which is in  process now. because real estate values there are so high that nothing  but .skyscraper office and wareroom buildings can pay interest on  the investment, will establish a retail centre elsewhere. Tltis we  venture to think will centre about the junction of Westminster avenue Westminster road  ;ind   l.roadway.  The development of tin* city as to its business section, will be  along the lines between Vancouver and New Westminster, which  cities are hound to draw together until they become one.  The prices of real estate in anil near the present city boundaries  is such that industrial organizations will seek less expensive stands  for their plant. ai:d fur residences for their employees.

Birmingham, U.S.  "The last ���������tv. e've months," he says  in part, "have comprised, a period of  building -activity in Birmingham and  vicinity AH pievious building lecoids  weie exceeded. Four new office build  tags are already . added to the city's  imposing list, anions? them be'ng the  new hcnio of the ChamLor of Com  mgrce." Mote home3 were built in Ilir-  mingliam and the average of cost was  la.ger last >car than ever befoie.  Thies new railioads. the llinois Cen-  traf, the Mel tin and Ohio,"and the nil-  mingham and Atlantic, made formal  entrance into ..Birmingham during the'  past year. .A new terminal station  was also completed. Thc'populaiity of  Birmingham as a convention centre  has emphasized the need of a new  hotel. Arrangements tor supplying,  that need'are now utider way. In post  office receipts the first quarter of 1909  shows a gain of 22 per cent, over the  first quarter ot last year.  The bank clearings in Birmingham  fell off in 1908 nearly $20,000,000 from  1907, showing the great effect of the  industrial deiiression on the district.  This year, with one month to go, the  clearings amount to over $86,000,000,  and will, helot e the year is out. show  an increase over last year, when the-  total of clearings was $93,600,000.  Business men seemed to he agreed  oh the point that the absence of saloons reduces crime, makes more law  and order and elevates the moral tone  of the community.  There are three daily newspapers in  Birmingham,, tw;o of them favoring'  prohibition and the thiid oposing it.  According to City Auditor Petersen,  the citj lost $llo,000 in liquor license  tees when the saloons went out. The  total revenue of the city for 1907, the  last year ot saloons, was $706,200 as'  against $692.(100 in 1908. theHrst year  without saloons. After the saloons  were abolished some of the assessed  valuations on real ������ property ' were  raised. That change was coming anyway according to the auditor. There  was also an increase in business licenses in nearly all cases. There was  a direct result from prohibition shown  in the reduction of the fines collected  in the police court. These dropped  from $49,899 in the last year with saloons to $34,-178 in the first year without saloons.  uANADlAN ANII llLA LKAL! spondent in the old country; has writ  , i   -  The railway mail clerks of Winnipeg  are dissatisfied   with  their  pay,  and  'hey will send a delegate to Ottawa to  nteiview   the  dspal-tment.

"Resolved that woman has wielded a greater influence in the world  than man,'' was the topic for the  evening's discussion. Messrs. W. H:  Henderson������ and Thornton Mitchell  opened the debate for the affirmative,  while H. Boothman led off for the negative.  . The strong point of the affirmative  was the influence of the mother in  the home, and in the teaching pro-'  i'essicns, in moulding the character of  the rising generation.. They cited  j the influence which women had wielded in literature, where books by feminine writers had resulted in ��������� great  reforms; notably that of Uncle Tom's  Cabin, which played a large part in  the abolition of slavery.  The negative, who were handicapped hy the unavoidable absence of  one of their leaders, showed that man  had ever teen the stronger force in  the history of the nations; that man  had been the leader in practically  every branch of life; that the in-  lleunce of the home was not final,  and not always lasting, in that later  companion ships and environment had  much to do with the moulding of  character  Mr. R. A.'- McConnel adjudicated  and awarded* the decision to the  affirmative.

The Year 1909  An agitation has been started to secure a new trial for B. T. Howell, of  Winnipeg, who was sentenced to two  years' imprisonment with 15 lashes  for an alleged  indecent assault.  (Continued from Page 1)  noun-emenis. Sir William Ramse*  sealed up some radium brom.de in .  l.ottle together with water. ' and ��������� ol  served the regular e^o'iiMon of the ga.  'hy.lropen ard cxvr.en) at t^e rate o'  ?,0 cubic centimet'e-s re-' wee'i. AfteT  nine mon'hs this evolution ceased almost eifiire.y. firm which Sir William  Ramsey concluded that either*he radium salt had lost its capacity- for rle  composing the water, or that the vel- j  oci.y of the reverse action (the re-ccm-'  bination  of. oxygen  and hydrogen  tc������  water) predominated over that of de  composition.   These results are ques  tioned by Bebierne, who decomposed  water" by  the  direct action  of  rays  keeping the radium; salt and the wate:  in separate glass vessels.   Whicheve;  chemist ultimately proves to be right,  the   investigation   is   interesting,   be  cause it is the first attempt to apply  practically the enormouse store of en  ergy   which   is   contained   in   radium  and which may be gaged when it it  stated that, during disintegration, ra  dium emits  two and one-half millioi,  times as much heat as an equal vol  time of hydrogen and oxygen combiri  ing explosively  to  form  water.    The  work   of  Sotldy   for   1909   has   showi.  without question  that helium  is  pre  duced from uranium as well as from  radium, the amount being t-vo mill.  grammes of helium annually from ove.  a million kilogrammes of uranium.  In photography we find an interest  ing attempt to present moving picture:  in colors by several inventors���������liarri  celli.   Friese-Greene,   and   Cuban   and  Smith.   Curiously enough, ail three in  ventions   are   based   upon   the   same  principle of so rapidly presenting im  ages colored red, yellow, and blue tha.  .he eye has no time to notice the successive   presentations,   and   therefore  combines iheni into one picture.    In  the same  field  o������ cbronophotography  must be mentioned the important application cf the moving-picture machine to the ultra-microscopic    by    Dr.  Comandon,   an   application   somewhat  similar   in   principle to  the  combination of the ordinary  microscope  and  kinetoscope  made   by   Dr.   Robert   E.  vVatkins  of this  city  over ten  years  ago.

Woman's World  It seems such a pity that Canadians  are fbpying the people of the United  States so closely in building their  houses without gardens. A garden is  a never failing source of delight all  the year around. They give the house  ah air of dignity and seclusion and the  place looks more home-loving tor its  bit of grass and flowers. Sometimes,  too, it keeps the boys and girls occupied, thus giving a certain gentleman, noted for looking up idle hands,  a hint of being no longer needed.

The large, handsome rooms  were gay with flowers, and were filled  with a animated and smartly-gowned  crowd of guests, who greatly enjoyed  the lavish hospitality of tho hostess.  Mrs. Douglas wore a love'y gown oi  white lace over white saun. with a  bertha of rose point, with which she-  wore handsome pearl ornaments. Miss  Fisher, who received with her. iooked  extremely well and was the subject ol  much admiring comment. Her dress  was of cream de crepe de poplin trim  med with wide bands of silk embroid  ery, and made after cne of the simpler  ,- and most graceful of the new drapetf  ���������J* I models.

Archdeaccn Pentreath gave a  biief but interesting addiess on the  history of the British and Foreign Bible Society, while the subject of the  Canadian Bible Society was ably dealt  with Ly Rev. R.

The Old Timers' annual ball, which'  formed the chief social attraction for  Thursday evehihg, vvas held in the Dominion Hall, Pender street, and held  the record of having the  largest' attendance of any  dance ever held  in  the city.   Last year there was by actual count just'a dozen short of    800  merrymakers present.    But this year  even this record was broken, judging  by the phenomenal demand for invitations.     Over   one   thousand   were   issued to old timers.    Reynolds' orchestra provided the music, and a.lengthy  program of dances, among which were  found seme of tin- old favorites of the!  early day pioneers as well as the lat-1  est and most popular dance successes,  to please the chechakoes.    An clabo-|  rate grand march, which  was headed  by Mayor Taylor and a number of the  early pioneers of the city, started tho j  festivities at !) o'clock sharp.

Again  ��������� __���������__���������  II I I  Marvels of  Moclernitv  Among the Greatest of these  is the  "Telegraphone"���������Also the  Telephone   Recorder.  There is on exhibition in a room in  the Loo .building one of these recent-  inventions, which is a niervel not only  to the ordinary man, but a puzzle  even to those of scientific attainments.  It is the Telcgraphone, and by it vvon-  |dei;t'ul things are acomplished. Ovv-  | ing to the discovery of a Danish scientists, vyho is able to magnetise steel  locally, it is possible for a business  man to place a telephone receiver to  his ear, and by talking in an ordinary  tone, dictate his letters, which are recorded on the steel disc, which revolves similarly to the disc of a grapho-  ibhor.e. The extraordinary part of -ii  is that when the letters, say, have  been typewritten, it is not necessary  to use a new cylinder, but. simply to  proceed all over again. :.s if nothing  had been on the disc L.iore. The  secor.d opertion <>'. li.erates the first.  The speed of the machine may be  regulated easily and automatically,  nd as an ingenious and labor-saving  device it has few equals.  With .such aii invention, it is expected that in-a short time postal discs  will be commonly used, and they are  now in Europe. On a small disc may'  be dictated a letter, and this disc may  be sent through the post for two cents  It may be used thousands ^of times,  being of a high quality of steel.  Another invention, resulting from  the same discovery, which may also  be seen at'the'same*, place, is the machine which records telephonic messages. That is, if an office man has  to go out, and while away, some one  calls him. any message may be. transmitted and recorded on a flue- wire.  which works automatically.- As. there  are hundreds of -feet' of this wire.' it  would take all the messages that  might be received in a' week. Wlien  the man returned to his office, he simply starts the reel and hears as  through the telephone the messa'ges  delivered in his absence., It is a marvellous invention and opens up untold possibilities. .-���������''.. ���������,_-?'
