 ���������^ 4  0\      *':  -������  '''.'. -..).���������  Vancouver City,, Mount Pleasant. South Vancouver and The Province  VOLUME I  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, MARCH 18, 1910.  No. 4i>  HERE AND THERE  It's unfortunate that the City Council could not see its way clear toward'  granting the $10,000 asked for the pro-'  posed Apple Show In this eity next  November. The promoters of the enterprise, none of whom have any personal or selfish interest in the venture, staled that it could not be financed unless the amount asked for from  the city was received. The total sum  required is considerably over $2f>,000  and it is not to be expected that the  Provincial and Dominion Governments  would contribute $l!>,000 to the city's  ���������J6.0Q0;  With "KC.OOO from tho city, however,  it's quite possible, and the promoters  had good reason to hope that the two  governments would make up the balance of $25,000.  <t    #    * ..  From reports in the daily papers of  the proceedings at the Council meeting, it is evident that some of the-aldermen do not appreciate .the magnitude and some other features ot" the  proposed Apple Show. Otherwise they  would net have suggested that it be  heM in connection with the inaugural  show of the Exhibition Association.  It would be auite impossible to instal  the exhibits of a show like those held  at Spokane the last two years, in the  present. Exhibition building. It would  require all the additional space that  the proposed second, building will afford.  It was such a show as the Spokane  Apple Shows that was proposed, and  there was no reason to doubt that it  would be in any sense inferior to  them. And therefore the proposal in  question could not be entertained.  Moreover, the month of August is not  a suitable, time for an Apple Show,  as butlfew varieties"are then available"  for such a purpose.  ;������������������"**.-*  We are glad to see that the civic  budget for this year includes a vote  to cover the expense of entertaining  distinguished visitors. In the past  it lias been necessary for the mayor  to defray such expenses���������or to pass  around the hat among the aldermen,  'and the business men of the city.  It is beneath the dignity of Vancou-  f'ver to resort to such primitive de-  }vices and it's distinctly unfair to ex-  ipect business men to furnish money  ��������� for purposes; that should be provided  for by the city at large.  We regret that the library appropriation should have -been cut, clown. We  do  not  agree    with  Aid.   Whiteside's  views as to the relative importance of  a public library in a community.    In  ' this .lay it is a very scantily furnished  house that does not contain a. considerable number of books, and we would  be sorry to think that many homes in  lVancouver are so poor or are so in-  rdifferent to good books as to be vvith-  lout them.  Vancouver is anything but a poverty  stricken   city,    and   it   would     be  shameful for us to neglect to provide  (the advantages accruing from the possession of a thoroughly equipped library.  a     ������      *  The Provincial Government  l^tis" ,-n-  Ihounced that it. is not considering tho  advisability of taking over the telephone sysleiv- of the Province. We  !had hoped thai it was. and that it  would adopt some measure to relieve  the people from the necessity of doing business with a privately owned  ���������monopoly. It is generally agreed that  (the telephone business is a natural  (monopoly, that is to say, a business  i>-hich it is best for the public should  [>e organized under a single head. It  s quite possible that the latter is true  ������f many other kinds of business, but  the fact is not made quite so plain in  .���������elation to them as it is with regard  lo the telephone. If a man has to rent  |\vo pnones instead of one. he knows  hr li2 thinks he does (which amounts  the same thing so far as his feel-  igs go), that lie is put to unneces-  iry expense, that one system cover-  lg all the connections now available  hiin under two systems would serve  fm better and more cheaply than  >o���������and he undoubtedly is right in  rJs. That, however, does not prove  |iat in any case one system is better  lan two. but only in that in which  lie former furnishes all the service  lat the latter would render���������and at  reduced cost. It does not by- any  tieans remove the possibility that.com-  p?tition sometimes is necessary to an  efficient service���������a possibility, by.the  way. thut we think might be realized  In Vancouver.  *'���������*'*  We have, no doubt that If. one milkman, for example, hud a monopoly of  the retail sale of milk in Vancouver.  he would, at a much lower price than  the dealers could possibly accept now,  make a much greater profit than that  realized by all those now engaged in  the milk business in this city. If this  is true, the consumer of milk has to  pay for the duplication of equipment.  the unnecessarily large cost of' delivery, etc.. just as the telephone subscriber having the phones of two companies has to pay for the unnecessary  expenditure involved in two systems.  It does not follow, however, that we  would be better off with only one milkman in town than we are with a number. It all depends upon the terms  upon which the former obtained his  monopoly and his observance of the  obligations that the possession of so  valuable a franchise imposed.  It might be discovered that a properly safeguarded and honestly exercised monopoly in many, if not all,  lines of business would cheapen the  cost to and improve the service enjoyed by the consumer.'  In the absence of effective safeguards and the other features named  the public is best served by competition���������even in telephones.  * *.   *  The action of tho City Council in  abolishing all taxation of improvements will have a very important, and  we think, beneficial effect upon, the  progress of: this city. While all arguments* re the taxing of ''.imiiroye-  ^ni^'lJ!^i������arjB^ot7o^vbn'e'SL^lej; it seems  to us that those supporting the Council's action are by far the stronger.  It is true that buildings cause civic  -expenditure, for fire protection, etc..  and there is some force in the contention that they should be called upon  to assist in defraying it. But the owners of buildings are necessarily taxed  for the land the structures occupy,  and therefore do not escape any obligation imposed upon other land holders. The fact that a vacant lot does  not produce a revenue does not affect  the case, for the owner of it can by a  further investment in the shape of a  building make it productive, and under  the new conditions his liability as a  taxpayer will not be increased thereby���������which of course is an additional  incentive to building. Furthermore,  there seems rank injustice iu any sys-  teni of taxation that permits a holder  of vacant property to enjoy increment  of value due entirely to the enterprise of his neighbors and for which  enterprise the latter have to pay into  the funds of the city. In a sense the  latter are penalized for their progrcs-  siveness. while the former is rewarded  for a course of action t hat is detrimental to the prosperity of the city.  * *    *  What, however, is of more importance is the way in which the new  regulation will affect the locating of  industries in Vancouver. The fact  tnat a manufacturer will not have to  pay any taxes upon his building or  his plant will constitute an exceedingly i-.trong inducement to locate in this  city. Tlii'u, loo. ihe prices asked for  factory situs will likely be modified by  this change in the incidence of taxation. It will no longer be profitable  for land holders to refuse a reasonable figure for land occupying a position suitable for factory sites. For  if the spirit of the new law is observed, the owner's valuation of his vac-ant property will be the basis upon  which it will be taxed. For it is absurd for such property to be assessed  at a value that the owner would not  think of accepting, and if the latter  puts upon it a price that makes it  impossible for it to be used as the  site for a productive enterprise, he  impedes the progress of the city and  should be made to reimburse the latter on the valuation fixed by himself.  *-���������        *       V  On the other hand, the manufacturer  is by the exemption of his buildings  and plant, put in a position to pay  a larger price for his site than he  could otherwise afford to do. The land  holder therefore will not suffer injury  as to any rights that the community  should in fairness recognize. Owners  that are conteHt to accept a fair and  ABOUT TOWN  DANGEROUS  STREETS.  There seems to be considerable lack  of caution on the part of contractors  or employees of the City in placing  danger lights on excavations. In some  cases there is great chance for accidents through the Insufficient lights  and barriers -We noticed one man  waiting for his car recently, and he  escaped being caught by clambering  up the pile of dirt, which had not been  moved far enough back to allow  standing room.

TRANSFER   OF   BUSINESS.  MATERIAL AND  SPIRITUAL  By Rev. Merton Smith.  ." In any case, we, the English-speaking  race, have all Israels promised bless  ihgs.    They are fourfold:  A strong birthrate and increasing  population wherewith to colonize.  The mastery of the sea.  .A deep hold on spiritual things, or as  Moses--put it, 'on the precious things  of Heaven.'  In other woi'ds the material and  spiritual leadership of this world.  -Until thirty years ago the British  birthrate was easily the largest on  earth and our surplus population was  going, forth to all the corners of the  eaith "making the desert blossom as  a rose."  . There is, of course, no question as to  our I .a nd Empire. It is the greatest  that has been, comprising in teritory  one-fifth of the habitable globe, by far  the richest and most fertile part, of  it, and one-fourth the world's inhabitants,' leaving* out entirely the eldest  daughter.-the great American Republic.  Since Trafalgar no one has seriously  questioned or threatened Britain's supremacy at sea.  Whether these material blessings  and pre-eminence has come to us because of piir spiritual strength or we  have become spiritually strong because of these material blessings is a  ���������point much in dispute, but to any one  who has traveled there can be no doubt  of the present material and spiritual  leadership of the British race among  ttatg-f Uoim. ^,   _  As children of the Empire we have  received a glorious material and sph-  itual  inheritance from our  fathers.  You and I live in a day when the  continued possession of all these blessings is to be called in question.  The power that is menacing us is  incarnated to-day in the German Empire. Let me say right here that I  bear no ill will to Germany or the  Germans. I spent five years of my  life among them and made many  friends; I studied in. their colleges and  afterwards engaged in business all over  the Empire? I have the right of knowledge to speak at* the people and their  Empire. Moreover I wish to make it  plain that if the supplanting Of tlie  British supremacy by German supremacy is to benefit the world materially  and spiritually it cannot take place  too soon to suit me.  Fifty years ago Britain had the highest birth rate in the world; she was  sending out, year by year an army of  colonists to 'make the desert blossom  as  the rose."

He and his country, stand for  the shut door in the United States,  and the "open door" in Corea and Manchuria. In this he is coarse, selfish, unjust to Japan and a noisy demagogue.  He prates about an "inevitable war"  between Japan and the States. Let  Mm find those of his country open their  trade doors to the "world, when they  demand Japan to open Corea and .Manchuria.

Such public blatherskites are a nuisance,  and  are  among: the  meanest  : We had on Tuesday evening last the  pleasure of hearing the ambitious effort of Mr. Andrew Milne, organist of  St. John's Presbyterian Church; an*  bis augmented choir in the production  of Handel's great oratio. "The Messiah."  ���������   \  ;._.���������' ^ '  The church was filled to overflow'  ing with a musically intelligent people who attended out of pure love of  music, and judging from the frequent,  ly and heartily expressed approval of  both soloists and chorus, were keenly  appreciative. Further evidence which  speaks well for the growing interest  in this, the very highest form of music, was the number of people who  held the score and followed it most  attentively throughout the whole evening.  The organist, Professor T. Bonne  .Miller, of .Mount Pleasant Methodist  Church, acquitted himself most admirably. We have had the opiiortuni-  ty of bearing this oratio played in the  old land by the most eminent organists, on the Lest instruments in the  world, but we have never heard anything which excelled Prof. Millar's  breadth and depth and delicacy In the  treatment of this work.

Mr. Milne coupled the duties of tenor soloist and conductor. His voice  is hardly suitable for the great task  of singing such solos as "Comfort Ye  My People." "Every Valley Shall Be  Exalted," and "He Shall Break Them."  The work was too great, the church  was too large for a voice of Mr.  Milne's calibre; his solos were rendered tastefully and artistically  withal.  In Mr. Gideon Hicks as baritone.  we had a very capable singer, with a  pleasing voice-; but he. too. hardly  measured up to the grandeus of the  magnificent solos he had allotted iiini  in this masterpiece of Handel'.-..

In addition there  will be numerous social meetings of  old comrades.  In nearly every town and city, in  the Dominion, and in many in the  United States and elsewhere, are men  who have served in the Queen's Own,  and the Semi-Centennial Committee is  desirous of getting personally in touch  with as many of them as possible.

He regretted this violation  of the Sabbath, saying, that apart from  all eti.^cal grounds, it gave a very bad  impression to visitors, and was entirely unnecessary. i^tiMfi  Alderman lrwin thought that a hint  would be sufficient to put a stop to  the practice, but if it was not, steps  should be taken to enforce the closing'  of business and financial institutions  on Sundays. Alderman Irwin further,  proposed that the police should see  that all advertising boards were taken  off the streets at the week end, and it  was decided to embody his proposals  in a letter to the police committee.  The Manitoba government voted  down the opposition's measure calling for compulsory education. Hon.  G. R. Coldwell made startling statements in support of his stand.  Residents of the west end of Winnipeg are opposed to thr entrance  plans of the Great Northern Railway.  The officers of the latter road are conferring with the city authorities.

But work in excess is debasing and the world over has found  that one day of rest elevates the moral  tone of the men who toil."  It is estimated that more than 300,-  000 working men in New York alone  are compelled to labor o������ the Sabbath. Mr. Mitchell and, his coworkers propose amendments to the state  law which will remedy this condition  There is too much work on Sunday  in Vancouer. What are you going to  do about it.

Withis a tew miles of "aris there  is a pleasure resort which does a roaring trade at this time of the year.  "Robinson," as it is called, is imperfect slyvan retreat. On the top o������  some undulatting hills are a number  of giant trees . Among their branches  al fresco refreshment rooms have been  ingeniously contrived. The place is  [quite extensive. Every tree of any size  has at least one of these quaint restaurant. Some of the larger one have no  fewer than three, one above the other,  the "top floor" in some cases being  quite fifty feet from the  ground.  The visitors reach these refreshment  rooms by staircases built spirally  round the trunks of the trees. The  waiters haul the refreshments from  the ground ia large baskets attached  to ropes which pass over pulleys fixed  in the higher brandies of the trees.  In the summer time a lunch or dinner  at "Robinson" is delightful.  In the centre of-this-tree top village,  is a statue of "Robinson Crusoe," from  whom the place gets its very un-Paris-  ian name. Presumably the first people  to realize its charms found ia it the advantages of the desert island of Defoe's  hero.  When not actuailyteaTiu^^^T!^  tree-tops, the visitors can roam about  the hillsides, admiring the charming  views of the surrounding country, wander through the fern clad glens, or  J dance and enjoy themselves en the  lawn.  The place is particularly patronized (  by honeymoon couples and by wedding  parties.  When Monsieur l.enoir, who owns  the snug litt'e v. i������e shep, marries  Lucille, old Leblanc's pretty daughter,  the whole party, pete and mere, and  brothers and sisters and uncles and  aunts and cousins on both sides���������yes,  and gran'pere and gran'mere. too, it'  they are alive���������adjourn to "llobinon,"  and indulge in a burst of enjoyment  which knocks an English wedding  breakfast into the proverbial cocked  hat.  When Jacques, the government clerk  marries little Lizette, from the Maga-  zin des Nouveautes round the corner,  they go down to "Robinson" for a day's  revel in its Arcadian joys. That is  their honeymoon.  Of course in England. "Robinson"  would be chiefly patronised by young  fellows and their fiancees. But in  France things are different. The  "courting couple." -which is the main-  ! stay of so many English amusement  resorts, is unknown.

The whole question  of the licensing of restaurants for the  sale of intoxicating liquors is one  which calls for serious consideration.  The principles and interests involved  are varied and complex, and the ever  increasing number of applications for  licenses which come before the board,  meeting after meeting, emphasises the  necessity for such immediate consideration. While the sale of liquor with  bona fide meals my possibly be a convenience to some people, and may  meet a possibly legitimate requirement, yet such venues of drinking are  responsible for many evils.  One of the worst and most insidious  features in connection with them/, is  the very respectability and attractive-  Wv'aic.  I  -JJS  ness of the environment with  tney   are   invested.

James An-  Pacific coast. j nam', ot* Vancouver. Pi. C. occupation  1 Broker, intend to apply for permission  Officers for the  ensuing year  were  to   ))Urchase   the   folowing   described  elected as  follows:    President,  C.   N. 'lands: ���������  licensed restaurant too often ������7equent-  ed by young men who would hesitate  to be classed as the habitues of a barroom? but girls and young women are  there supplied with wines and liquor,  and are exposed to the temptation of  forming habits of intemperance wiichi,  were it not for these facilities, they  would, in many cases, never encounter.  Nor is this the extent of tbe evil.  The male companions by whom these  girls are introduced to the resorts are  frequently men who are more or less  chance acquaintances; men of whose  character and antecedents little ia  known by either the girls themselves  or their parents or friends. While in  the majority of cases the motive may  be perfectly legitimate and honorable,  yet it cannot be denied that tbe tendency towards opportunities for evil are  too obviously great to be ignored.  Not only is tbe restaurant open for  the sale of liquor, but, according to the  present understanding of the regulations, they  are open day and nigbt.  They are not bound by the same laws  relative to the hours of closing which  the saloon is governed.   To close tbe  barroom at a given hour and allow a  licensed   restaurant   to   remain   open  . and continue tbe sale of liquor is irrational in tbe extreme./  Being ejected  from the saloon, adjournment can then  be made to the restaurant, where the  midnight revel can be continued.   Not  .only is the reveller being encouraged  _;in_ the_xontinuance_ of his, debauchery,  but  the  legitimate  customer  of  the  bouse in search of refreshment is subjected  to considerable  inconvenience  and annoyance.  Another aspect of the restaurant  question upon which the board adjudicated was that of the removal of  screens and partitions. Here again  their action was in the best interests  of the community, for while such seclusion may be innocently desired by  c Home people, yet it also, in certain  cases, assists in the propagation of  .'many evils. The present popularity of  restaurant dining goes to show that.  the great majority of the patrons of  restaurants do not desire such seclusion. The old-time privacy of the  home dininc room has been discarded  for the light and glare of publicity of  the fashionable restaurant; it has become popular to patronise public places  of refreshment, not merely to eat. but  to see and to be seen. It is therefore  apparent that the demand for hole and  corner seclusion in places of public  resort is not su much the outcome of a  legitimate desire for seclusion as for  special accommodation for special purposes.  In the face of these and other dangers, it is wise to grant more licenses  for the sale of liquor at all hours  and to all persons, in resnirants? We  think not. We affirm that the extension of these nurse" ies of intemperance  and evil should be checked in every  possible way. and have reason to believe that such action will receive the.  endorsement of the citizens of Vancouver.  "When you have a motor car." said  a man enthusiastically, "you depend on  your own intelligence entirely. Now  it's altogether different when you drive  a horse." "Yes." answered his companion in the car, "tbafs one reason  why I think a horse is safer."  Optimism was the keynote and progress the watchword of the eighth annual convention of the Vancouver Sunday School Association which was held  in the city on Thursday and Friday  last. The convention was composed of  delegates from the various Sunday  schools in the district and was held  for the purpose of stimulating Sunday  school work, and as a medium of interchange of ideas among teachers and  workers.  The gatherings were presided over  by the President of the Association Mr  C. N. Haney, and the principal speakers were the Rev. W. C. Merritt. Field-  worker on the Pacific Coa-st of the International association, and the Rev.  I. W. Williamson, general district secretary. The addresses of these men  were supplemented by those of a number of others from local leaders in  Sunday School efforts.  At the opening session Mr. Merritt  gave an excellent address on "Christ,  the Master Teacher". Basing his remarks on the interview of Christ with j  the woman at the well of Samaria,  Mr. Merritt remarked that all of the  supposedly new ideas of teaching,  which are used and valued to day originated with Jesus Christ, and he instanced a number of these pedagogic  principles which the great teacher  then employed.  Rev. E. W. Stapleford gave an address at the evening session on the  "Opportunity of winning this generation for the Sunday School". The supreme business of the Sunday school,  he said, was to win the world for  Christ. It was a proposition which appealed to the strongest minds and taxed the capacity of the largest faith. He  deplored the ignorance of the present  generation in the matter of a scriptural  knowledge stating that although the  present is called a Christian civiliza-  even there were but few who could  even write a coherent account of the  life and teaching of tbe Saviour or  give an intelligent resume of His attitude towards the greit problems of  the day. i  "The Sunday School organized to  Win" formed tbe subject of a helpful  address by the liev. W. C. Merritt who  said that there were three great factors in sutxesjjUCuL.Sunday School work,:  tbe pastor, the Superintendent and tbe  teacher. The relation of tbe pastor is  an important one, when it is remembered that something like 85 per cent  of the church membership is derived  from the Sunday School. It is easy to  see that that branch of the activities  of the church should legitimately  claim an adequate share of tbe pastors  attention. He knew that a great many,  pastors tbought themselves too busy  for this work but if they realized the  importance of this great harvest field  of the church it seemed to him that  they would not be able to do too much  for it.  A feature of the afternoon session  at the second days meeting was a  valuable talk by Mr. Chas. M. Reed,  secretary of" the boys department of  the Y. M. C. A., on "the place of ath-  erly organized and supervised athletics in Sunday School work."  Mr' Reed contended that with properly organized and supervised iifv  letics the problem of how to reach  the boy can be solved. Each of the  three sides of a boys nature is important; the physical must not be neglected any moie than must the spiritual. At the adolescent age. when it  is difficult to retain the interest of the  boy in the Sunday school the work  can be successfully continued by means  of athletics and outdoor interests. He  emphasized the importance of carefu.  selection in the men who are appointed as leaders of boys, stilting that it h-  impossible to teach character, for  character is contagious, and the boys  will catch it from the men with whom  they are with.  "Should the next aggressive move be  paid workers?" was a subject of a  round table discussion. Rev. J. W.  Cameron, who introduced the subject,  contended that, where the finances o!  the school warranted it. there should  be at least one person who should be  paid to devote the whole of his time  to Sunday School work. The churc!  thinks it wise to pay a man a goor".  salary to preach to adults, and it wat  more, rather than less, important t<  have a really good man for the worl  among the children. He contended  that there was no bra'nch of the  church activities where the expenditure of money would bring greater returns.  At the evening session the Rev. W.  C. Merritt in the course of his address  on the "The organized adult Bible  clas������" complimented Vancouver upon!  its commodious and comfortable Sunday school rooms, declaring them to  Haney;-Secretary: W.

WILLIAM JAMES ANN AUD. *"  Dated this 18th day of February. 1910.  GRAND  EXCURSION  GOOD FRIDAY  Ocean  Trip $1.25  Half Fare  ,H  Train leaves  VANCOUVER 10 a.m.  !   OCEAN PARK s P-m.  The finest panorama opens out to view  from this point.  Northwest the eye rests upon the Delta  country and Lulu Island, the (arms, etc.,  which lie almost at water level, are spread  out in full view. Beyond this die 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,  and behind them the backbone of Vancouver  Island. South -and southwestward the  Sound stretches 6ut; in full view, with the  islands and mainland promintories, and behind them all on clear days the magnificent  sweep of the Olympian Mountains in Washington territory.  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 the 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.  ^l������;MJ1^.(|l^.,J!^.tJl.J������<J^.4.���������K>^���������.:>^������������������'^���������^���������'!'���������^**'I���������*.

As sure as fate,  if such a war did take place. Uncle  .-5am wuuiu never see his tieet return from the Orient. It would not  be Spain in her old wooden tubs that  the noise-making Yankees would meet  They would meet the best naval fleet  outside of Great Britain, ard would  be smashed as truly as were the Russians in their insane attemut to mas  ter the fleet of the Mikado's empire.  Let Secretary of State Knox aud the  late Oriental heaven-born financier  Schiff, bear in mind that it took the  mighty Yankee nation six year with  the fleets, transports, artillery, cavalry, infantry and all their up-to-date  appliances to conquer the Phiilipine  islands.  And these poor benighted, bare-legged saveges with slings and wooden  guns, kept the mighty screech-eagle  on the jump for six year. And in fact  these wretched islanders are not completely subdued even yet.  Baron Komura. .Minister of Foreign  Affairs, one of those the Post calls  barbarians,_quoted on the same page  as is the Post, speaks as a master,  a manly and wise man. He says, "1  am convinced there is nothing in American-Japanese relations to cause unr  easiness. The real far-east interests  of the powers are not inconsistent or  antagonistic, and war is in conceivable.  It would be a crime without excuse or  r.Nakenta-Offbeing Bi  palliation. My conviction finds am;>!e  support in ihe understanding of 1908."  Thebe are the words of a wise man,  of a strong statesman. Put over again  ihese, the sensible utterances of Knox  Secretary of State, an<! one sees a  rude, uncultured barbarian though oue  of the highly civi ized Caucasian race!  But Knox, Schiff, Mayer, the Post.  ami men of similar spirit, are playing  tbe game for Get many, and d:.������ing their  best to separate Britain and Japan.  These men all loudly praise l^aurier,  Canada and ihe penny-whislte navy.  Why? Simply because L&urier works  for Germany, and against Britain and  Japan.  (Continued on pspe ������')  Y.M.C.A.   FLOURISHING   THROUGHOUT THE WEST.  In connection with the steps now  iieing inaugurated in New Westminster  for the building of a $50,000 Y.M.C.A.  headquarters in that City and the probability of a similar campaign in Vancouver this fall, it is interesting to  note that this valuable organization is  making great progress (brought the  West. ���������    -  From all indications 1910 will,,, be  !he most prosperous year in the growth  of the movement.  Between Ports Arthur and Victoria,  within the next sixty days, the building company will have concluded the  following buildings. At Port Arthur  $25,000; at Lethbridge f45,000; at New  Westminster? 30,000.  These amounts will provide modern  buildings with sufficient revenues to  make the institutions self-supporting.  Plans are completed for the ne������r  $100,000 building to be erected at Victoria. The new Calgary building when  completed will cost ������110.000. '��������� {  Between Port Arthur and Winnipeg,  the Y.M.C.A. holds property to the  extent   of   $1,000,000.  The regular work o. the Y.M.C.A. is  being strengthened at various points  throughout the west.  SUCH A UNITED FAMILY.  A young lady who possessed a small  amount of furniture, including a piano,  decided to move to the country. So  she advertised for room and board with  a family  "musically inclined".  One answer received seemed to fill  the bill completely :  "Deare Miss:-We think we kin sute  you with room and bord if you pree-  ( fer to be  where    there is musick.

ALL  HOPE GONE  This most persistent lover seemed'  to make no progress with the object  of his affection; she gave him no  apparent encouragement. Finally he  said:  "My dear Gertrude, can you give me  no hwpe ��������� none whatever?"  "No my dear boy. I cannot: not one  speck of hope���������for I am going to  marry you".  There is no room for debate as to  the desirability of building up the manufacturing interests of'Vancouver. The  presence of a large body of prosperous  artisans is essential to the continued  prosperity of any city. We believe the  natural conditions affecting Vancouver are favorable to the making of it  one of the greatest industrial centres  of Canada. And. therefore, the home of  tens of thousands -of that most desirable class of citizens���������vrell-paid mechanics.  This possibility should stimulate  every person interested in Vancouver,  to give the heartiest possible support  and encouragement to tbe proposed  movement. It is a work that should be  done now. There are tides in the  affairs of Cities as well as of men that  cannot be neglected without loss, and  nothing could well be more obvious  than the fact that the time has come  when Vancouver should take up this  question in a systematic and thorough  way.

Had it  not been'for England they would have  hadmore success than has come their  way. Now they are trying to draw off  Britain from the alliance with Japan.  Could this be done, then Germany  would not feel so weak in the naval  stomach. An in addition Japan would  be an easier mark than at present is  the case.  Ever since the Russo-Japanese war  the newspapers in general have had  it in lor Japan. Never in the history  of newspapers did any country make  the big reporters and insolent war correspondents take their place so completely. Never were the correspondents so helpfess. during a great war, as  those who attempted to learn and  freely give-out to the world all that  was happening in the management  of the Japanese fleets and armies. As  truly as Japan was their master and  controlled them like a lot of bobas-  tic school boys, so truly did they, from  then forward, to this day'do their best  to misrepresent her in all he international doings.  This accounts for the continued  stream of abuse by the papers and  men who'were kept in their place by  Japan during that wonderful war. Most  insolently the correspondents of the  big papers demand all the working .secrets of a nation at war. And if that  nation be master of its own affairs, as  was the case with Japan, then these  men threaten and make good their  threats of libel., misrepresentation and  persecution.

(Continued from page 1*������  GERMAN MENAGE  It is because of the greatness of our  !land empire that Germany threatens.  With a home land overburdened by  excess of population under present day  conditions, with 600,00 sons and daughters seeking new homes in the outside world every year, the German empire naturally looks around for a spot  on earth where her children may go  tand still be under their own flag. And  everywhere they look the British flag  floats or British interests block the  way.    Canada,    for    instance,    with  wealth open to uennuny,   It is a pii/.e '  without a world's parallel and to-day  the strong man armed armed is almost  ready to seize it. Would it be a good  thing for this world if German supremacy were to replace Braitain's?  After all, what's in a name? Would  we not be just as happy as Germans  as we are as Britons? , Is there any  essential difference for which it is  worth while contending? Pardon me  for one moment, w..Lst we look at. the  political life of Prussia, the main factor  in the German Empire.  Under the three-class system, which  means that the power of *cte varies  with the voter's income in Prussia. In  Turkey and Persia, although the people have a genius for order and a  superstitious regard for free authority,  the bureaucracy which rules them is  the most intelligent in existence, aud  the country on the face of it can claim  to be as well governed as any other;  yet the fact remains that in the Duma  at St. Petersburg, and still more the  mejliss at Zezerlane, the Democratic  idea is voiced more often and with infinitely greater effect than in the Leip-  sigerstrasse where the legislators of  Prussia   foregather.  The recent terrible riots in Berlin.  Kiel and elsewhere, in which many  persons were killed and thousands  wounded is a weak protest against fo  litical conditions that you and I can  hardly understand. Let me state  briefly these conditions: Under the  three-class system all males over 24  years of age, who have lived six  months in a constituency, who possess civil rights, and who are not in  receipt of public charity, are voters.  The whole of the direct taxes, state,  the first and second class, representing 17.68 per cent, of the electorate,  being practically  disfranchised.  At the 1908 election returns were  as follows: The ballot being open  there is no guesswork about it. The  net result of this system is a perpetual majority in the House for what is  called "Tbe Junker Party" so long as  the coutrist as Roman Catholic party  is placated. In consequence the Crown  as long as it sees eye to eye with the  Junker Party and the Catholic Party  is absolute. 'And whilst in name there  are still countries where the monarch:-  claim a greater authority, there is w  country where the sovereign is so absolute in power as in Prussia.  Remember���������this is the genius of the  German people. It is the 20th century development of the German. Just  as representative government as we  know it in Canada is the 20th century  development of the Anglo-Saxon. You  can see it in commerce as well as In  politics. The trust from which we  are suffering so today is a product of  the German mind, although mainly  visible today in America.  Notice Roihsohild. German Jews  head, the Money Trust.  Havemeyer headed the Eastern  branch of the sugar strike, whilst  Klaus Spreckels headed the Western.  Guggenheims are head of Smelters  Trust.

Two   German   Jews  head   the  The-  while purporting to be the acme of the  Democratic principle, would really result as we have seen in Robespierrey  .Marat, in the most desperate human  tyranny.  Do you want to be governed and  commercialized on the German principle? NO! Then head the German  menace on the material side. It is  really peril to the Empire, and much  nearer than any of us like to think.  But there is something worse than an  armed attack on our material blessings: It is the subtle and sustained  attack on our spiritual inheritance.  When the Apostle Paul was asked.  "What advantage than hath the Jew?"  he replied: /'.Much -every way, chiefly,  because unto them were committed  the oracles of God."    Rom. 3 1-2..  When the question of Israel was under consideration, he said: "To them  pertaineth the adoption and the glory,  and the giving of the law. and the  service of God and the promises whose  are the Father's and of whom, as concerning the flesh it came who is over  all. God blessed for ever." Rom.  'J: 4, r>.  By the rejection of Christ as .uc.-.-  siah. the Jews lost all these things,  and beyond any doubt, by the acceptance of Christ we have gained what  they lost.  As I showed you last Sunday night,  for the last fifty years a subtle sustained attack upon our faith bus cm-'  anated from Germany until almost every'theological seminary in the Empire and the United States has been  leavened with the doctrine of unbelief  In Germany, this attack on revealed  religion had already killed almost all  real faith in God. when I was there  between thirty and forty, years ago.  I speak of Protestant Germany alone.  You must understand that in Germany  the church is established and all who  are registered as belonging to it art  raxed for its support. Until quite recently, to be without a cerrihYate o'  baptism and confirmation was almos'  equivalent to apply for a place without a "character" or "reference." Al'  that is changed, and great numbers  are legally and officially separating  themselves from the Protestant  church. This movement has now  grown to such an extent that the  church  dignitaries  have  taken   fright  and  are  everywhere aroused  to stop  atre Trust, and so on through all the jit, but It goes on at an ever-increasing  gamut of trusted interests. jrate.    In Berlin alone, the average of  To offset these  injuries in govern- those breaking away from tbe church  ! ment aDd commerce, the Oerman mind  ���������the Protestant church, alone, mind  I  00   per   day, "nearly   100,000  per annum.  Liberal theologians, as well as Conservatives, are now trying to stem the  tide. They might as well try to stop  the stars in their courses. They have  destroyed the faith of the people, and  the end is chaos and judgment.  And   the  morals���������when   faith   steps *  out.  moral  ruin  steps  in.    The   revelations of Jurnalist Harden  in   Berlin  have  uncovered a condition of  moral'  degeneracy in the emperor's entourace-  that   is   paralelled   only   by   Pompeii  and Sodom.  And our race has the modem movement toward unbelief in God's precious;  word helped or hindered us morally.  I have already referred to the  strides race suicide has made amongst  us. No one in whose heart the authority of God's word had not already  been killed would dare perpetrate this  crime, in the sanctuary where God  dwells in bur bodies.  But let me give you figures cm other crimes, taken this time from the  United States.  Ten thousand persons murdered every year: shot, strangled, poisoned,  stabbed, sand-bagged, two in every  100 of the murderers are punished;  !)8 escape absolutely free. Chicago  averages US murders every year. It  is estimated that 2.*\0,000 persons  whom the law never touches, are engaged in pursuits of crime as a business: $1.373.<'('0.O00 is the annual cost  of crime in the United States, as estimated by "The World Today," of  Chicago. Steadily as the German theology of unfaith has made its way  amongst our colleges and from them  amongst the people, this awful toll  of crime and wickedness has been tho  outcome.  There are today four and a half  times as many murders for every million of population as ihere were 20  years ago in the United States. This  is the most terrible part of tbe German menace, the undoing of our moral life by the destruction of our spiritual faith in God's Holy Word. It is  said that our Empire is overrun with,  spies of the German war party.  This danger is very real, much more  so than most of us are willing to admit. It is as nothing to the emissaries  if German unbelief, who are swarming in onr colleges and universities,  until the whole atmosphere of our id-  ucational life has become poisoned.  And the cure. A personal return 'o  the Christ of God, as revealed in the  Bible���������Old and New Testament. Vj: ,.'������rc.*;*te^r,:iiif.?izs:.a^iv^  |i5  THE WESTERN CALL, 'VANCOUVER. BRITISH COLtfMMA.
