No. 50  HERE AND  CIVIC  ENGINEERING  WARM SESSION OF  BUILD N5 COMMITTEE  Is the engineering department ol' the city giving general satisfaction?]  Are the various problems, such as sewerage, water, street tradings, etc., being  well and properly dealt with? These and oilier pertinent questions should  be asked by every citizen. Now is the time, while we are laying the founda-  iions .of a. great, city, to ask if our policy is such as to answer the needs of  this growing metropolis. If we can answer in the allirmaUve, all is we|l.; But  grave doubts arise in our minds as we con template some of the freak efforts  of the present engineer. When we see a 24-inch sewer where there should be  one of four feet, and a four-foot one where there should be an eight-foot one.  we wonder what will be the effect in a few years' time. The present engineer  has held oflice for some live or six years, yet up to the present he has been  working at random and there is no definite plan or system of sewerage. AH  parts of the city are clamoring for sewer connection and the medical health  officer has repeatedly warned the authorities of the danger of an epidemic if  something is not done. Recently Aid! Stevens introduced a resolution.-recommending the securing oi' a competent supervising engineer. His resolution  was opposed by the chairman of the Board of Works and other members and  was finally referred to the Board of Works, who held two secret meetings  ���������and decided to whitewash .Mr. Clement and extend his powers. - Siieiiis the  position at the present and there promises to be a lively, time when the Board  of Works" report is discussed by the Council.  *      - *       *  STAR  CHAMBER  The Board of Works recently held two meetings from which the public  and the press were excluded. Why this privacy was thought necessary; is  hard to determine. The meetings,were held to investigate the engineering  department under a resolution of Council There was no personal attack.  Everything was openly and frankly stated in the public Council chamber, sO  there was no need for any privacy. The only explanation that seems to  apply is an antiquated notion, born of gross ignorance, that.a meeting held  privately added to. the autocratic power of the body who convened it.  We confess that the Board.of Works, especially the chairman, seems to  have a very exalted opinion of their importance, and it might be well to point  out that this is a democratic coiuiiry and the people demand fair and open  ���������'discussion'" of all questions of public interest. The people have the right  to know by what course of reasoning the Board arrived at its decision regarding the engineer. .     . /;      ���������  . *������������������ ��������� '*������������������������������������'    *  MOUNT PLEASANT  PAVEMENTS  THE COMMISSIONERS  ������. ODLUM  THE MBOR  PARTY TRIUMPHS  The recent elections in Australia has created a profound sensation in the  return to power of the "Labor Party.'"-.; It is one of the significant signs of the  times. The successful party is strong for the principle of concentration of  power in the federal government aud for industrial legislation on advanced  lines. Democracy must prevail and it' the old parties studiously close their  eyes and ears to the demands of the industrial element they will inevitably,  have'lo taken rear seal in the administration of affairs.  That which is true iu Australia applies equally as well to all parts of the  Empire. Coming closer to home', we would point to the lack of appreciation  on the part of the Provincial Government regarding securing cntrol of public  utilities. Practically every Conservative Association hi British Columbia,  including the great, provincial-convention! at Kamloops, urged the government  to take over the telephone monopoly.,. The largest proportion of the cities and  municipalities also memoralized; the government along the same line. But  corporation lobby proved too strong and we again beheld the executive gracefully bowing to the behests of biie of the most unscrupulous exploiters of the  public that we have in the province. .The people are getting weary of this  sort ot* thing and the voice, of democracy is calling more loudly and persistently each day for a fair hearing, and we predict.that.unless our legislators  are wise and -acceed reasonablyto this demand they will be stipereeededr  possibly when they least expect if.      7  ' ' * . ���������  -J*       *  CAR  FENDERS  The B. C. Electric Railway company have been promising the city to  have suitable fenders placed on their cars. We have been listening to these  promises with more or less doubt and periodically another victim is added to  the list of the slain. The present fender used hy this company is simply  1 barberous and criminal. There is positively no excuse for the delay. In the  [\name of humanity we again wish to raise our voice in protest against, this  open defiance on th part of the company of repeatedly expressed public senti-  , ment.  *       *       ���������  A special session of the Building  Committee was held Wednesday night  for the purpose of discussing Aid. Stevens' amendment limiting the height  of buildings to ten stories and not tc  exceed 1.20 feet.  Various moneyed interests wore represented by .Mr. Weart, T. S. Smith.  W. Clark. M. P. Thompson and others.  These gentlemen advanced ev������ry possible argument in favor of the skyscraper. As might be expected, these  arguments were based on the question  of revenue and capitalistic interests.  Several threats to withhold capita!  were made in order to work on the  susceptibilities of the committee. Mr.  Weart iii speaking of his proposed  block, painted a glowing picture of  marble columns, magnificent corridors,  modern sanitary conveniences on the  top Hals, etc., which was calculated to  put the civic authorities in such an  ecstatic state of mind as to eliminate  all thoughts of gloomy problems with  which.some of the older, cities have  to deal.  The general trend of argument favoring high buildings was to allow them  to go as high as they wished, but regulate the light wells and construction,  h'hat it was necessary to cater to capital by allowing them to secure the  greatest possible revenue, irrespective  of its effect on surrounding property,  or'on the health of the community.  Aid. Stevens in supporting his;  amendment stated that from the standpoint of revenue ten stories wouild pay.  a sufficient.-return. ��������� He claimed that,  according to the bigest authorities on  economics an investment of four qi  live hundered thousand dollars should  not receive more than four or fiveper  cent, and that the average building ot  eight or ten- stories would pay about  8 per cent, or more, which was all that  should be asked. He claimed that ii  was to the'best interests of the city to  spread the business area over a larger  ground space than to have it done iii  a small congested district.  It would seem that at last the citizens of Alt. Pleasant are awakening.  Application to pave Westminster Road  is now before Ihe City, also for Seventh  Ave. from Bridge to Prince Edward st.  and for Broadway from Scot to Ontario  thanks to the untirii\g efforts of D. E.  H-yndmnn and others. It is also stated  that a petition is out for the paving of  Tenth ave., as well. This all spells  advancement for this district and is  badly needed. There is no reason why  as many streets as possible should not  be faced. It is all done by local Improvement and thus the property owners  assume the liability. It is highly de-  sireable and commendable that this  Work should be done and we give it our  most hearty encouragement.  THETRADES COUNCIL  POUTICACPLATFORM  JUVENILE COURT  CITY  MORGUE  This is not a very   savory subject but none the less an important one.  'To think that a city of the size and importance of Vancouver should not have  a morgue is scarcely conceivable.   It is nevertheless true.   In case of an accident the victim is taken to private undertaking parlors and inquests are held  there.   This is both inconvenient and annoying.   At a recent inquest the jury  and others in attendance were unnerved by a sudden burst of grief from some  1 poor .mourner in another apartment who had come   to see their departed  I friend. How could the average man be expected to maintain a judicial state  Lot' mind under such circumstances.   We should have a suitable morgue and a  [place where inquests could be held in comparative comfort.  GENERAL HOSPITAL  |>Mueh criticism is offered of the man-  temeut of . the Vancouver General  lispital. Not so much as to internal  langements but regarding the admis-  pn of the poorer classes of patients.  lis alleged that there is considerable  ^crimination which militates against.  Dse who are unable to pay the fees  lirged. It is suggested by many that  ((would be better if the city were to  \e over the control of the  hospital  ll make it a municipal institution.  I? do not presume to say that this is  fc best course, but it is certain that  tjiere should be no discrimination and  as the city contributes large sums towards its tip-keep it is reasonable to  demand fair treatment of all con  cerned. Where there are large sums  of public money involved it is always  desirable to keep a strong hand on the  expenditure of the same. At present  this is impossible. The business and  control of the policy is entirely in the  hands of a private board, and no matter how honorable tti'ey may be, there  is sure to be an indifference to public  opinion which would not be the ease  were the city to have control.  ft is truly pleasing to see how steadily  the present commissioners are enforcing the regulations governing the liquor business of the city. No promises  were made, but when once in office,  they began the work of enforcement iu  business like manner. The hotelinen  have no ground for complaint either.  The board are simply asking all and  sundry to keep their eyes on the goal,  to wit: the laws governing their business. So long as the liquoimen attend  strictly to their affairs, aiid square  their conduct by the existing regulations, they perform their legal duty. If  they do not this thing, then the law-  will punish them.  On the other hand,"'so long as the  Commissioners enforce the laws fairly,  evenly and without favour, they will  have the support of all the respectable  citizens, including the best men engaged in the business.  In past years there have been much  said.and written in relation to the traffic during the Mayoralty election.At the  last contest little or nothing was said  in the way of promise to either the  temperance people or to the trade, and  quite rightly the Commissioners have  done their work in a business like manner.  His contention that from a sanitary  standpoint it was inadvisable, passed  unanswered. The argument on this  point was that where buildings were  run up to above ten stories it practically excluded the sun's rays from  the lower stories, and that the suu was  recognized by science to be the besi  purifier we have. And further, that a  large, portion of those who work in  these lower stories are compelled to  labor in semi-light whicii \yas* excessively unhealthy.  Another argument advanced was  that of congesting the street traffic. It  was pointed out. that no street in the  city would carry the traffic if both  sides were built up with sky-scrapers.  This argument went unrefuted. N'o effort was made by those who were supporting the sky-scraper to explain how  these problems were to be dealt with.  Xew York's frantic efforts to deal with  this question was cited by Aid. Stevens  in defence of his position. A recent  comniision there had reported on the  awful effect that the present congestion in that city was having on the people, germinating disease and death.  The question seems to be Capita!  and Revenue vs. Health, Public-Interest and future convenience. Aid. Stevens states he''has not dropped the  matter by any means but purposes  pressing the amendment.  PEDAGOGUESTAKE  TO THE WOODS  While in some matters, such as the  False Creek proposition. I differ, from  Mayor Taylor, yet with his work  already performed in the  Board     of  *'". '  ���������""   '--,-���������'"'-���������-.-. ".*'":  Commissioners, so far as I "have been  able to gather, I, am in hearty agreement. It is only just to lend en -  conragement during the days of strenuous discharge of public duty. We  are too ready to condemn certain acts,  and not. sufficiently ready to praise  other acts worthy of our support. Here  and now, it is a pleasure to state pub-  hope that their success will be com -  ptete.     It is a fact that    for   a . long  time Vancouver has been cursed by a  number of low groggeries of a most  debasing and debased character. We  wish the Mayor and his Board real  success, and shall hot. forget him anil  them-in days to come.  Saturday last witnessed an exodus of  Vancouver's sedate educators to White  Rock. A number of prominent ieach-  ers and principals who have purchased  summer resort sites in that Acadia, are  clearing up their lots with a view, to  building summer cottages 1 his year.  The inspiration which must result  from an intimate relationship with unexcelled natural surroundings of thi.s  popular resort, should reflect benefi-  ciently on the  youth.  Trouble seems to be brewing in Juvenile Court circles already. It seems  from an analysis of the.various conflicting reports that the Children's Aid  Society have appointed a committee  from which: is studiously excluded the  represtentatives of the Juvenile Protection Association. ' In order to understand the situation properly it should  he remembered that under the act the  committee which takes charge of the  deliiiquints consists of "an. equal''number.-from the Roman Catholic Children's Aid Society and the Provincial  Children's Aid. Thus It will be seen  ihat the association which has done all  the work of organization and secured  the' ojieration of the act is barred. This  association 'represents the following  organizations:  ., Royal Templars of Tempranee.  .  Knights of Columbus.-  Local Council of Women.  W. C. T. V.  Children's Aid Society.  Children's Aid Society.of the  Holy  Rosary Church.  Trades and Labor Council.  S. O. E., 77, 237.  C. O. C. F.  Catholic M B. Association.  Central Ratepayers' Executive.  Royal Scarlet Chapter.

This association might have had representatives on the committee hail  Attorney-General Bowser so ruled, but  it is generally accepted that a powerful  lobby from the Roman Catholic section  influenced him to withold his consent.  What lends color to this is tho statement alleged to have been made by  ������������������'atlier Madden at one of the meetings of the association to the effect  that if the association was admitted  then they (the Roman Catholics) would  be in the minority. As it now stands  one Religious faction has a representation equal to all other organizations  and creeds, including -Jew and Gentile,  Atheist, Protestant, Greek, Socialists,  etc.. etc. It would appear as if it were  a medium by which the ranks of a  religious sect could be recruited. Such-  a thing is deplorable. We have ���������"long-  wanted a Juvenile Court, but it is  doubtful if a free protectant community will long stand for any such scheme  as that. It is to be hoped that the  authorities will remedy this condition j ,   *    *    *  so that all the various social and relig- |  ions organizations will be represented This is only another illustration of the  according to number.

Plank Number III.  So far as I can see at the present moment this article of the platform is all  right. One suggestion I would make is  this: r���������; Theie is a growing tendency  to legislate in, relation, to tlie income  tax in such a maner as to to Increasingly lessen the estate of the wealthy  at their decease. This may and must  work an eventual punishment on the  people who" iii righoranee"oi" through"  injustice wantonly rob the dying and  their heirs, so as to get    even    with  them for saving their money.  If the economic cond'lions are bad,  horribly bad. then Change them in  a manly and wise way, but let not le-<  gislation be used to rob the deserving  and thrifty so as to satisfy jealous?,  vengeance and a spirit of robbery.

That body  took up the bill and by midnight had  given it the tirst, second and  readings.  The liquor interests tried to get an  amendment through tlie council requiring a three-fifths majority of the  ratepayers of Halifax in the referendum which will take place in this city  as provided for under the act. The  council refused, however, ami it stands  that a majority of the votes cast in  tliis plebiscite for or against license  shall   he  sufficient.  .- The. council   made  one  amendment  which provides that if shall  be illegal  finder the act to form clubs to secure!  liquor  for  members.

And once  more, the strong will triumph, the poor  and weak will suffer, and the commonwealth tumble into heirless confusion.  In the above 1 have not one word  against, the., aforementioned plank,  number throe. I only wish to draw attention to the spirit of the age. and if  possible aid in giving fundamental direction.  By the way, if any person should  feel that he ought to reply to me, or  correct tiny part of my writing, or  criticise my endeavour, I suggest that,  he do so oh the merits on the case and  not make it a personal matter, as so  third many have done in the last twenty  years. Personal animosities, belittling,  and insults produce no good results,  and should lie beneath the white man's  dignity. Moreover all the personalities  so commonly adopted by contentious  writers are useless, powerless for good,  and so far as I have been and am concerned  have no effect.

The tension was  awful, and there was real danger ol  nervous prostration overcoming one or  both of us, before the supreme moment  arrived for the sending of our terra -  gram.  However we managed to get it off in  due time, and in the most perfect or  der. Of course we took care to make  it an exact copy of the oft repeated  message from Mars, which message we  shall now call a marsogram.  We had not finished sending the  terragram before a marsogram began  to register itself on the instruments  kept just for such a purpose. ��������� A  glance of the eye told us the .Marslans  had simply repeated the message sent  so often during the long period of  time above mentioned.  It was evident they had despatched  to us the very message we were sending to them at the same moment of  time.  As soon as we read the Marsogram,  we repeated our message, and a little  while afterwards it was repeated to us  from Mars.  Then in about   five   minutes   later  they sent us a new and different message.    Of course we could not read its  meaning, but we repeated it.       This  strange sort of Incomprehensible con -  versation was kept   up   until   twelve  messages were received and'sent.    We  were overjoyed with   the   result,   and  were very much fatigued, so we decided to quit the conversation.    A fur- \  ther message came. and we answered  by a dash.    The same marsogram was  -epeated and our answer was a dash.  Another, and another came, but a dash  was the only answer.   Then to our a-  ma/.ement and delight the next, mes -  sage was a   simple   dash.    Hereupon  we stopped short and gave no answur.  The dash was repeated, but we an -  -swered not, and finally rest ruled the  Marsographers.  We rested, threw ourselves   in   the  hade of the trees, sang, leaped for joy,  ind after a period of ecstastic jubil ���������  Hon, took a good hearty meal, went,  far a long walk and   finally   to   bed  -.vbere for twelve hours we   slept,   as  lever before for long years.  On the following day, at 10 A. M..  km went leisurely to examine our in -  ���������trument8, and the wonderful ma migrants thereon registered. We examined them, guessed at their meaning,  tnd tried to make a reasonable plan  'or following up our wonderful dis -  'covery.  It ocurred to us that ac the Marxians  nust know the exact time at which we  "inally answered them with a simple  lash, they would in ,_.alJL probability  nhke test again at the same hour. So  it 0 P. M. we were in leadiness to see  if any message should come. At (i  ."*. M. the first message came, but ������lt  Aras a simple dash. We responded  .vith three lines and they repeated.  This was kept up until we sent ten  Ines, and after they returned the ten  .is an answer , we cut off the conversation with a dash.  This they repeated to us, waited a -  *hile and sent the dash again, but wo  v"iild not answer,, and again all be -  came silent.  Hereupon we concluded that beyond  i doubt we and the Marxians had not  >nly communicated, but to some ex -  en* understood eich other.  We knew now that we had 24 hour?  nf rest before they would again try to  talk to us, and in that time we decided  ipon a plan that we felt   sure     the,  would perceive and full/ understand.  After much labor, we found a methot"  of sending wave circles, and character?  of all shapes such as the ordinary numerals and letters of the alphabet  Then we planned ihe following ; 1st  we substituted the O for the- - as a  ull stop, to end conversation.

As they had previously learned  meaning of the lines:  the  etc. un to ten, they would naturally  translate tr������e symbols 1. 2. 3. 4, etc. as  tbe e"Ufvnlents of   the   straight   line  groups,  Hence on the following evening at  six o'clock, we began to give the numerals as substitutes for the lines.  It took a good while to make them understand our use of the O, or full stop  to conversation. However, they were  apt scholars, and, when once they got  over this difficulty, they quickly picked up the method of substitution. After  repeating this lesson, and showing  them our system of numerical notat -  ion, we decided to close our lesson by  putting them on the qui vive for something new. So before we finished the  conversation with the O, or full stop,  we used the symbol 2, and they an -  swered by two lines. Then we again  erragraphed the symbol 2, and they  marsographed back again the two  iir.es, Then we sent the symbol O  \vhich when they answered we ceased  to reduplicate.  At once they understood our symbol  O and its meaning, as was proved by  the fact that they themselves did.not  repeat it, as formerly they had done.  We knew that the repeated 2, would  set them wondering as to its meaning.  But we had a way of forcing them to  understand its intent.  At 6 P. M. the following day we  watched the instruments and found  exactly on time that they were testing  by three sings, viz. the -, the 1, and  the ��������� -. They were evidently perplexed  ae to the method of calling our attention. -We refused to answer and sent  them never a sign.  After an hour's attempt on their  part to get an answer from us, they  sent the symbol O and ceased. By this  use of the symbol O we knew full well  that they had completely got its meaning.  At 6 P. M. the second day, we were  at our instruments, and lo! they at  once began with the symbol 2. With  intense joy we at once responded by  sending back the 2 which was repeated by them and us. This process of  repetition was abruptly ended by our  use of the symbol 3, and the final O,  which of course ..were repeated by  them.  The next day 6 P. M. they sent nothing but symbols 1 and O to which we  replied and stopped short. On the second evening they sent the symbols 2  and 0 to which we replied and ceased.  On the third evening they sent the  symbols 3 and O. We replied. The  next evening they took the initiative  by sending 4 and O, to which we replied.   <  They so continued until they got to  10 and O, on the 10th evening.  We now decidied to give our attention to something we knew they could;  not tail to understand, so we made a  set of symbols of an nstromic character and in due time began to forward  them.  We made one sign to represent the  earth and the moon; another to represent the sun, earth and Mars in opposition; another to represent earth  and Mars in quadratur; another to  show the. sun, Venus earth and Mars.  Of course we took care to send them  the symbols to conform with the exact position of the heavenly bodies at  the time we telegraphed the symbols.  Having send the above tour symbols, we sent 10 and O and ceased. We  did not. answer any signal until 6 P.  M.on the 10th day alter, and then-we  tent the* mark ? and O.  They replied by sending the whole  four astronomic symbols and to oui  surprise they used the ? and.O immediately after..  By this we perceived that they had  discovered a way of receiving a symbol and repeating It. at once. We were  8ui* from this that they had knowledge of photographic phototelegraphy  and photo - vibrato - graphy besides  inventions and appliances of which wl  h:;d no exact knowledge.  The thanks of the public   in   Ml  l'leasant are to be tendered    to    the  management of Mt. Pleasant   Methodist church, for their success in seeming the services of Rev. W. J. Dawson.  D.

The   fame   of   Dr.  Dawson as a platform orator, lntehec  mal lecturer, and    inspiring   speake  'ins gone before him, and Vancouve-  should certainly rally to the call and  hear him as often as he speaks. He wil  speak on Sunday, May 1st at 3 P. M  and 7 P. M. and lecture the three following nights, taking as his subjects-  lavonarola ��������� The prophet of liberty.  Oliver Cromwell ��������� The builder of lib  erty,  Vbraham Lincoln ��������� The martyr of liberty.  All men should hear him.  The services in Mt. Pleasant Methodist church next Sunday will be of -i  special interest. The regular morning  ervices will be followed by the admin-  Istring the sacrament and the reception of members. The evening subject  will be "A call to the men of our land"  -ind all men are invited. A male quartette will furnish a number of selections  and Madame Yulisse will also sing.

All  these were repeated, and to each we  sent the word "good." At the end of  each conversation we signalled cessation by our symbol O.  We had gone so far that we decided  to make an attempt with, the letters  of the alphabet, and the sounds rep -  resented by each.

The next night we repeated the photo of our instruments, received it a -  gain, answered good, and then sent a  photo of ourselves, and the instru -  ments, in One picture.

Then we sent a photo of my own face, of my wife's face,  of my hand and her hand etc., to all  which they answered good.  We ceased for the night, and the  the next evening the conversation was  continued by our sending pictures of  men, women, children, dogs, birds  flowers, mountains, rivers, fields, bridges, railways, steamers, cities etc. etc.  After we had given a large list with  their names, we concluded to wait for  them. So at 6 P. M. we sent the sign  ? and ceased. Of course they did not.  know our meaning, hut returned the ?.-  We waited and waited. So did they.  We sent the O and cut off for 24 hours.

The Story in Brief  A syndicate of well-known business men of Vancouver have, by the expenditure of time and capital and the employment of experts, secured an area  of what is believed to be THE BEST UNDEVELOPED OIL LANDS in California.  This property comprises 20 mineral oil locations,  containing in all 3,080 acres. This ground is near  San Diego, which city affords not only a good local  market for oil products, but also good shipping  facilities, and the property is favorably situated  for the construction of a gravity pipe line to the  harbor at a minimum cost.  On this field, the geological formations, the seepages and surface indications cannot be excelled in  California, and its value is the more assured by its  being in direct line with producing areas, having  identical formations.  So favorable were the reports on this particular  property, that, after a personal inspection by members of the Directorate, as large an area as possible  was secured, and arrangements made for the commencement of developmnt work.  THE BEAVER OIL COMPANY, organized to carry out the work of developing this property, is registered under the laws of California, to  do business in that State. It is capitalized at  $2,000,000 in ONE DOLLAR shares. There  is no "preferred" or "promotion" stock, and the  Company commences operations with its valuable  property and plant entirely unencumbered.  All charges for prospecting, inspection; and ac  quiring of this large acreage, the purchase and installation of an up-to-date steam drilling plant, together with all costs connected with company organization, have been met by the Syndicate Membership.  It is proposed to issue to the public small blocks  of stock, as the requirements of the work will warrant. The first of these is for only 50,000 shares,  and, considering the valuable assets of the Company, the price is exceptionally lbw7 These: shares  are fully paid up and non-assessable, the management reserving the right to increase the price, without notice, on any shares that are not taken up.  Later issues will be placed at higher figures.  Don't Mistake Us  We are selling thisstock at a low figure with the  object of proving thevalue of the Company's prop  erty as quickly as possible. When we have  developed the oil in a paying quantity, there will be  no stock issued to the public at any price.  We are convinced that we have in this property  and its development the best opportunity for great  things in the way of business that ever knocked at  our door, and we are backing up this conviction  with our money. If you wish to have a part in  this enterprise and lo share the opportunity with us,  now is the time to get in on ground floor prices.  With the advent of our first strike, every acre  of our holding will jump in value to at least $2,000  per acre. The prices now being paid in Southern  California for semi-developed oil lands are sufficient warrant for the estimate that the Beaver  Oil Company's stock wiil soon be held at a price far  exceeding its par value.  The Midway oil field in Kern County is probably the liveliest spot in the United States today,  all on account of the great oil wells recently brought  in there. Lands that were not worth $5 an acre  six months ago are now selling at $2,000 per acre  and upwards. One of the new wells is producing  $6,500 worth of oil every 24 hours.  The Official Geological  Report      \    .  refers most favorably to ihe San Diego district as  an oil area.  G. W. Magwood, Esq., geological expert, is one  of the latest to add testimony to the prospective  richness of this field. After .spending several weeks  in the district investigating the oil conditions, he  insists that this point is destined to become one of  the greatest oil producing centres of" the Westr  Further, "I have given ten years to the geological  study of formation stratas, and anticlinals of the  different oil field? of this State, and have been in  every field that is to any extent developed, and find  that the oil belt is continuous from Monterey to  the Gulf of California," and "where the big producers are, the formation follows the Coast." Referring particularly to the ground between Del Mar  and Otay (in which the Beaver Oil Company's  land is situated), he states that "the oil strata can  be traced in a line approximately the same distance  inland, and the conditions are evidence that there  are great lakes of oil. OF WHICH THE  GREATEST LIES BETWEEN DELMAR  AND OTAY MESA." In this district the expert finds all the favoring conditions, the lime,  shale, oil sand, fossils, gypsum, sulphur and oil  breaking through, to justify the belief of the existence here of the greatest pool of oil in the State  of California.

Judicial Incandescence.
* *        ��
Under the above heading the Seattle
Star publishes the following cuitoiial
in illustration of the utter incompetence of the modern system of justice.
* ���       *
A most noiable demonstration of the
progress of the judiciary has been given, by that Justice Garrison of New
York, who, in passing upon a verdict
cf $8,500 rendered for a five-year-old
girl whose leg was cut off by a street
ear, said:
"This verdict is too high. The jury
did not take into consideration the
great improvement in cork legs."
In tar-back times, in times of such
judicial minds as Solomon or Daniel,
Jbe judicial action would have been
much more crude. Solomon would
probably have promptly and definitely
settled the difference between plaintiff
and defendant by ordering the left leg
cut off the president of any street railway company that ran its cars so care-
parluient showing the new scheme as
determined by the Council, and to be
able to explain to the Minister of Marine our reasons for this change. This
is reasonable and important. But why,
asks the Professor, is there any haste?
Because our agreement with the G. N.
R. calls for commencement of operation within 00 days from the time the
"conveyance" is made.'.not from the
time the "by-law" passes, so it is necessary to get everything in order by the
time the by-law is to go before the people, otherwise there would be considerable delay.
The Professor also infers that the
bulkhead question was involved with
the agreement with the G. N. R. and
was to be railroaded through on one
by-law. This again is wide of the
mark. The only thing that could have
possibly been in that, by-law was the
agreement with the G.X.K. The other
question could never have been legally
attached and it was never intended to
have been.
He then goes on to say that, the
'scheme" of the Council was to fill in
the balance without consulting the people at all. That secret negotiations
were with other railways to give them
the remaining portim for nothing. This
is so insanely absurd that we almost
doubt the authenticity of the statement. No one knows better than the
Professor that not one foot of city
property can be alienated except by a
by-law voted on by the people. And
further, a resolution was passed at the
last Council meting to submit the
whole question of bulkhead to the people before any action was taken. Again
I can assure the Professor that no
secret negotiations are under way with
any railroad whatsoever. The public
press of the city published last year
interviews with .Mr. Hays of the G. T.
P, and .Mr. .Mann of the C. N. R. quoting them as saying that they would
be willing to lease portions of the bed
of False Creek, and I, for one, would
welcome any further advances from
these gentlemen, as I feel sure' would

animously laid emphasis on this very ;
feature of our glorious urban heritage, i
Let us suppose a case.    Let. us sup - ���
pose that,  the authorities who .are in j
control of that, wonderful natural phe- j
nomenon known as the Giant's Cause- ���
way in the north of   Ireland   were   to
conclude that this strange child of na-;
ture should be hewn and whittled and
patterned to suit the average sea-shore:
spots of beauty, the fashionable water- i
ing - places.        If an attempt of this'
sort were   made   the   whole   civilised
world would be amazed, and more let- <
ters would get into the press than have,
been written on our Vancouver Park.;
It. is the unique nature of the Giant's:
Causeway that gives the charm and;
holds the permanent attraction fori
men and women of all lands. So it is j
with Fingal's Cave on the Isle of j
Staffa.
Now we have by nature a park j
strikingly unlike all other urban parks

visitors such a thing of beauty and
differentiation from all competitors

In conclusion the Professor gave a
parting shot regarding secret meetings.
The only secret meetings were held
when the committee were negotiating
with the remaining few property holders (of which the Professor was one)
a left leg cut off is gone forever   and
consequently priceless.
But such decisions belong to an age
upon which we are prone to look down
as lacking in progressive civilization.
Our judiciary, especially, has advanced. We hire jurors to hear evidence and render verdicts,, and hire
judges to set aside what the jurors discover and determine upon.
There has, indeed, also been great
improvement in cork legs and glass

discussed was open to the public and
lasted all day, lunch being served to
us in the Council chamber. The meeting at which the bulkhead proposition
was discussed was also held in the
Council chamber, open to the public
and the press. In fact all that the Professor has succeeded in doing is to
cast aspersions on the whole Council
without having made a single statement which would warrant any such
course. He has succeeded in Insinuating into the public mind a mistrust and
an apprehension regarding the integii-

class that ought to have help from the

PLANK NUMBER SIX.
This is a wise plank, and I bel'eve
would carrv on a plebiscite, if reasonable safeguarded in relation to emergency which from time to time would
and always will arise. My opinion is
that "Eight hours a/Jay" will give al!
the labour that is requited in any community or count ry. In fact. I am inclined to the belief that seven
hours would be nearer the marl-.
I say this on the ground that every
country "should have such hours oi
work as would employ every williiK
and able worker." None should be idle
and if those now idle or mostly idle
were propefly provided for. in all pro-
babiliy the whole national work could

WILD-CAT REAL ESTATERS
Alderman Hepburn has been blamed
! for entering a 'protest against certain
j "wild-cat."   real    estate     propositions
' placed  before the public.    I    do    not
know   that,  the  alderman     mentioned
any person or company in particular.
If he did not. then it is difficult to see
just why he should be blamed for tiy-
I ing to save the public    from    buying
i foolishly, and being defrauded by those
I who offer lots for sale at. places and
distances where they are not likely to
be used for the next hundred years.
I think Alderman Hepburn and those
who have co-worked with him in this
matter deserve the thanks of the public. It is a fact that "city" or "town
lots" have been sold at inclines and
altitudes dillicult of ascent. Summer
homes among the clouds, far up the
mountains, may be very good for a
few weeks during dog days, but for
real homes and residences the sites are
useless.
In the rush of business among the
real estate  men, whsn  investors  and
speculators   are   numerous   and   flush
with money, there is too great a willingness to subdivide lands into lors
which for  many years to    come    are
practically   u^eh'ss.   This    results.    I
think, partly from care'.essness, partly
from real ignorance of    present    ar.d^
heir-future conditions and partly from;
heartless avarice.
' In ibis writing I have no person or/
company   in   mind.    Tbe   real  estate!
men  who are trying 1.0 do an honest j
business will not be angry with me.   If 1
there be those who stow  wrathy    on,',
reading this, t'-en ! Tfirik  the public
would, quick'y adjudge them somewhat,
consciously gui'ty.
Personally, I admire The alderman's.

It is instructive to notice that at the  present rate of settlement, the three  western provinces between Ontario  and the Rockies will in five years be  entitled to as large a parliamentary  representation as Quebec now possesses. Where, then, will be the necessity ofpoiitical parties truckling to  the anti-British sentiment of the  French element? The west will saw  off with Quebec, and Ontario and the  coast provinces will decide the national policy. It is about, time that politicians enlarged their vision and see the  the importance of catering to the  strongly imperial sentiment of the  viewing west. The small end of the  telescope is towards Quebec; the large  end points to the vast expanse of  prairie. The politicians have been  overwrought by looking through the  magnifying glass the French priests  had turned on Quebec. They are beginning to realize that they have been  made to look foolish.  Large Local Subscriptions.  The committee is concerned  chiefly  in the plan for raising money in Winnipeg and chiefly in arranging the plan  so that it will he equitable, and will afford all those who wish for it, a chance  to get in on the subscription lists.  Preliminary working out. of these lists, together with declarations of some principle men and corporations, show that  there will be no difficulty in raising a  million dollars by stock subscription in  Winnipeg, if so much of this is needed  in addition to that which will be derived from other sources.   Indeed, interest in  the Exposition   is so great  among the men who have looked closely into the project as a great natural  event which will bring splendid results  to all parts of the Dominion, that there  is no limit within reason, to the support the Exhibition will receive anion*.'  business  men and the general public  of Winnipeg.

I  Confusion and  ruinous delay would  j accompany a common use pf the referendum on all occasions.  ! PLANK    NUMBER    NINE.  This is a sweeping proposition. Here  it is: ��������� Absolute ownership    by    the  government of all timber, mines and  | water and all natural resources, with  ; power to lease with conditions for use  I and  utilization.   Now   this   has   never  ��������� been the experience of any nation in  (Continued from page 4) history as far as I can lecall, excepting  Many years ago British capital went j Egypt, and our state is quite different  (Continued   from   Page   one.)  The Trades Council  and its  to the continent of Europe in untold  millions, and built up great industries  which'quickly came into competition  with the factories in the British  Islands. All men '��������� who are fairly acquainted with the rapid growth of industries in Belgium and Germany  know that what 1 say is true. I have  seen manufactured goods shipped to  England from the continent which  goods had been made by continental  hands paid by British capital. This because of cheaper Inborn on the continent. I      !.'  At the present moment there are  millions of money from England in  India, Egypt, Japan and other countries building up factories in these  ��������� i'mds, as the result of  cheaper 1 a b o v. r. And this  henceforth v/ill go on to a larger -extent than heretofore. Then will come  the relentless nemesis of the white  men's mistakes in dealing with the  Asiatics.  PLANK   NUMBER   EIGHT.  The referndum should have a position it does not now enjoy. As a matter  of fact every election, where candidates offer themselves for re-election, and  where candidates offer themselves on  the policy of the last council or parliament, is a referendum. The trouble  with this is that it usually comes too  late. Mostly the harm ov good has been  settled by legislation before the referendum comes to the people.  However, where a new and very important question comes before the legislature, or council, which question  has not been discussed before the last  election, then it might be wise and  helpful to take a referendum.  from that of Egypt when Joseph took  possession of everything in sight, including the human population, in. the  name of the emperor.  Perhaps this plank refers to the timber, mines, water and other natural  resources "not at present handed over  to private individuals and corporations." Even with this limited view of  the case it is doubtful as to the wisdom of such an attempt.  First, let. there be a fair and prolonged trial by the government "in  some large and suitable district." Then  if by contrast the attempt be considered successful and the. plan be pronounced wise by the commonwealth,  expansion of the area and number of  natural resources could follow. We  need not spend a lot of time making j  trial for that which we will never get..  Limit our demands to the realm of  early possibility and reason, then push  forward for them with all our might.  We need to come down from the clouds  and attempt the things within reasonable reach. Afterwards other things  will have come into the region of probability and actual accomplishment. In  my humble judgement planks f o u r,  five, six and seven would  be a bill of "fare sufficiently extensive  for the next ten or twenty years. And  in case the platform were narrowed to  these more important planks, and all  energy turned to their accomplishment, there would be headway made  far beyond what is possible by attempting so much at the same time. Select  the planks that the public are apt to  carry, for the labour unions must, ever i  ������������������ i  fail  unless they have  the support of j  j independent   public.      Many    fail    in  But the use of  the. referendum  on j business   because  they    attempt    too  every occasion, when a few might feel j much.   Concentrated  energy,   thought,  inclined to call for it, would become an  plan and purpose in the realm of legis-  intolerable nuisance and put a stop to'lation are superior in effect to an at-  the wheels of legislative progress. And tempt at. more than can be accomplishing addition, the representatives of the ed by men, corporations or eommuni-  people should be comparatively free ties. Therefore limit and concentrate  to use their best judgement, in hand- to, and upon the more important.  Hng the affairs of the country or com-! PLANK    NUMBER    TEN.  So far as Vancouver is concerned,  this plank is adopted, and in my opinion the present couneilhas gone rather  too far. However tilers is no need of  bothering over this pht.'.se of the matter.  But the rest of the province might  safely go a few steps in the direction  indicated by this plank, and do no  harm. There is room for real good.  The principal is a good one, and  worthy of support. However certain  modifications might well and safely be  kept in mind in the continued agitation.  PLANK    NUMBER   "ELEVEN.  There is not any great problem proposed here. The matter of electoral  districts is one for convenience and  best representation for the whole pub-  li<7 It is and always will be a mixed  question.  Population, or numbers based on  equality for voting, is not good enough.  Mining districts, grazing districts,  large and sparsely populated districts,  cities, towns and agricultural districts  must count in the matter of parliamentary representatives. Equality of  population is impracticable and im-1  possible. It has never been used in any'  nation and it. is unwisdom to worry  too much about "a very minor matter"  before the country seeking solution.  Where flagrant, injustice is done by  allowing a hundred or two to send a  representative to parliament, special  provision could be made for its correction. But even here the treaties and  contracts of past days must not be  broken without very good reason and  a fair recompense,  recomense.  The element in our human makeup  which whispers: ��������� "We have the numerical power, and therefore let us  crush out all opposition, irrespective  of past contracts and existing rights.'  ��������� is in truth a very dangerous and  disruptive element. And as I have  aforesaid, in touching on other matters. I say it again it will work  mischief in the early future, and those  first caught In the iron jaws,of the  retributive nemesis are the poor among  the workers.  "We must respect the past, or be  punished irresistibly hy the future."  Disregard of the past hurls a boomer-  ting that pierces, on its return, the  very life and spirit of those who imagine they can legislate for the future  platform are honestly and intelligently  trying to aid -in the solution of some  very knotty and pressing problems. We  should honor these men who are honestly and faithfully attempting to do  good. In like manner it is but right to  say we think they are striving to accomplish too much at the same moment of time.  In all that is good, wise just and  useful we wish our socialists and  trades unionists real success.  E.    ODLUM.  April 12.. 1910.  SweAfiiSii  (Continued from pageJj)_  COMMUNICATION   TO MAHS  times, to show their pleasure at having  seen us find a method of quick repro -  duction of the message sent us.  Having gone so far we decided to  face the chief elements of the spoken  language. To this end we photoed the  lips, and by pencil illustrated the  i' changes of shape according to the vowel sounds. A long labor was followed  hy perfect success.  Then we undertook tlie consonants ;  a long protracted labor. However we  won, and then conversation became  fairly easy.  To give the sound of O we repre -  sented a photo of the human face, accompanied by a sketch of the mouth  puckered, as when we   make    the    O  sound ; and an arrow to show that air  passed from the    mouth    when    thus  puckered.     The meaning of the aTiow  had been used before    in    connection  with running water pictures, and was  j well understood by the Marsians.

BANKERS���������ROYAL BANK OF CANADA, Vancouver, B. C.  SECRETARY���������F. C. WILLIAMS  :������    "���������/  This Company has been formed as a medium to furnish' capital7to establish and  extend sound and thoroughly approved INDUSTRIAL and MANUFACTURING INSTITUTIONS IN VANCOUVER; also to acquire either for immediate resale or  development, large tracts of farming, coal and mining properties, amlto bring these  vast industrial possibilities convincingly before the investing public here and abroad.  The character aud possibilities of the propositions undertaken will have the*  benefit of the careful investigation of the'company's experts and the final approval of its Directors before presentation to the public. ^This wil be invaluable  alike to the enterprise, and to the investor.  Real Estate Values Must be Maintained and  Developed by Stable Industrial Enterprises;  The commercial and industrial'progress of a community is the only basis of  true value.  Industrial enterprise makes payrolls.  Payrolls make a city.  Industrial enterprise swells the population; gives life to trade; puts money  into circulation, and increases the value of property.  It underlies all wealth.  An Era of Great Industrial Development is at  Hand  The opinion���������nay. the positive conviction of the greatest financiers of the age-  Lord Strathcona. James J. Hill, Lord Northcliffe, Sir Thomas Shaughnessy���������openly expressed iu the public press���������as to the incalculable wealth and inevitable future  of our great natural resources, are in a way a justification for the present high  real estate values, and even of values far greater, but. only when supported by  Die actual commercial and industrial development essential to true prosperity.  Organization Department  Few people appreciate the almost, multitudinous undeveloped resources of this  province���������resources that require capital and capital alone,"to awaken to productiveness. ,.....-  Our vast wate" no\v������>p wiil develop many million horse-power.  The imir.eikse coal fields with their supplies for hundreds of years to come, will  give heat and energy incalculable.   Power is cheap.   The supply is inexhaustible.  Practically, all kuown minerals are mined in the Province.  Ti*nber is obtainable in any quantity fvr almost any purpose.  "'   The sea and the rivers afford the ehok-est quality of fish.  The high average* temperature encourages continuous activity in nearly all  lines of industry.    It gives open harbors the year through.  These vtst^possibilities are now handicapped by lack of capital.  And This Capital Can Be Obtained  as soon as the investing public at home and abroad realizes the enormous opportunities offering in the industrial field of business enterprise.  Through the London Office of this Company  a close touch will be kept with British cap'tal, with a.view to flotation and issue on  the European markets of propositions too large for the local market.  The profits of British Columbia enterprises are becoming keenly appreciated in  the Old Country, aiid the Company's arrangements for introducing new capital have  been most carefully made.  Through connections in St. Paul ..large tracts of British Columbia farm lands  will be placed before the ever-increasing community of American settlers migrating  from the older states to the Northwest. Already a large interest is being manifested in the wonderful fertility of British Columbia soil, and its temperate climate.  Investment Department  The same care and thoroughness that is given to every branch of the Organization Department, will be applied to the Investment Department, where local client*  may feel confident that any funds invested through the company, are placed only  in enterprises of the highest character and promise, such as the company itself is  prepared to underwrite or invest in.  It is the aim <*f the Company to become the standard investment exchange of  the province, where, through the most modern and efficient system applied to every  branch of its business, and the most careful scrutiny of every proposition handled,  investors will be protected as.,much as it is humanly possible to be, while sharing  in the great industrial progress that is taking place iu British Columbia to-day, and  that will continue for many years to come.  Factories Must Come to Vancouver  "In five years" is the official announcement of the Vancouver Information and  Tourist Association, "Vancouver should become the greatest manufacturing centre  in Western Canada and in the lifetime of many now living, one of the foremost on  th's continent.  lint this will not come to pass without effort. Despite our unrivalled natural  advantages, if the people of this generation want to see here "a forest of tall  ���������ehimuey,s,7',in, their. ..time, they will have to get busy.  Other cities are not sleeping on their opportunities or making a secret of their  advantages. The biggest and most prosperous, as well as the younger, among  them are reaching out for things that will do them good���������and are getting them.  Vancouver should: do the same���������and do it now. Delay in this, as in most other  matters, is dangerous. Cities could be named whose phenomenal early progress  obscured the need of such action. But the need existed, none the less, and the  cities iu question reaped the harvest of th������ir neglect of it in an abrupt cessation of  growth and shrinkage of realty values and revenue that had nothing to justify them  in. what  were  practically non-producing communities."  This Company, under the most experienced management possible to obtain, and  backed by business men of Vancouver of the highest integrity and ability, men  whose lives have been spent in the advancement of our Province, will endeavor to  put into practical operation the aspirations of the citizens in bringing about this  era of commercial and industrial activity. In this space, from time to time, an-  iiouiueuHiits of the organization or l'eorganization of manufacturing coueerns will  be made, ami mtr representatives will call upon the investing public of the Province, showing in more detail than is possible by advertisement, the opportunitien  whicii these commercial propositions offer to the conservative investor, giving absolute security and at the same time advancing the interests of our City and Province.  Every proposition, either for Organization or Investment, will be care fully considered, and the small investor will receive the same courteous attention as the  capitalist.
