British Columbia,   MAY 13,  1910.  HERE AND THERE  SITUATION IS SERIOUS.  The seriousness of the political situation in Hritain can be  judged by the suggestion of Lord Oury.on, that a eominittee, consisting of five Liberals and live Conservatives and the Speaker, be  appointed to draft a new constitution.  Lord Cur/.on, speaking at Reading, said, there were wild men  in the House of Commons, who were winning all along the line and  would exact the price of their triumph to the uttermost farthing.  There could be no termination of the struggle until both parties  conferred. He suggested an " All England eleven" of five Liberals  and five Conservatives, the speaker presiding, to draft a new constitution satisfying the reasonable desires of the great majority on  7bpth sides.  A resolution was passed to put the imperial pioneer movement  on a -'permanent basis by. invitiug membership of all over seas and  Iidme believers in imperial solidarity in defence and commerce.  ; The pioneers are joined by another Canadian and are undertaking a'country campaign. They hope to cover every constituency  this year.  There is no doubt that the greatest thinkers are convinced that  the situation is so serious as to demand more than ordinary action.  The rapid, change in conditions.and the greater capability on the  part of the people to self-government, makes imperative the drafting of a. new or amended constitution. The welding together of  the great Imperialistic ideal with the Democratic tendency of the  age is-the work of statesmen of the highest order. The Empire is  calling for such men to-day in no .uncertain tones. Never before  lave we failed to find the man for the hour. and.there is little doubt.  [but that in'the near future men  will be available for this great  undertaking.  #**.*'  PUBLIC HEALTH.  That the health of the public is of supreme importance will,be  knitted by all.   An epidemic of fever or a scourge of smallpox is  ays alarming and results usually in loss of life and serious dis-  iption of business.  The first essential duty of Government is to provide adequate  >roteetion as regards sanitation. This is especially applicable to  'u'ties, where the thickly congested districts make the sanitary  problem one of greatest moment. The health authorities must arrange suitable sanitary laws and see that private property is free  From filth and accumulated rubbish. Dirt and rubbish are the  (tome of disease. Smallpox cannot thrive where the ordinary laws  itcleanliness are observed.1  .Proper sewerage will at once be recognized as the. first re-  Iuisite in urban lite, alid as absolutely imperative iu order, to ������������eure  hat standard of health and cleanliness which will ensure reason-  We protection to the community.  SEWERAGE.  The sewerage problem in the City of Vancouver has reached au  [Uite stage. Large, important and thickly populated districts in the  ty are without sewerage.    Grandview  (most of it). East Ward  Iive, large sections in the old settled districts of Mount'Pleasant,  id the greater portion of Fairview have uo sewerage system  -day.   There is no plan of sewerage in the city.   It is true that  (e City Engineer submitted a plau to the Hoard of Works at its  st meeting for surveying a portion ��������� of West Ward Five. Jt is  erely a section and is not in any sense a part of a .large, and  onprehensive scheme. The present engineer has held-office for  fe or six years and, as stated, has no scheme of sewerage yet.  It is not for lack of funds, as there is now over $400,000 lying in  U bank for sewerage purposes. The citizens would willingly vote  [imther $^  resent.   Last year we spent $163,000 in sewerage, the amount on  ind at the commencement of this year was three times that amount.  ?hy has this not been  expended?    Simply because the engineer  too small for the position.    Because the Hoard of Works seem  be entirely subservient to the engineer.    Because aldermen are  [raid if they criticize the engineer that he will "hold tip" some  )rk in their ward.   Tims the public health is jeopardised because'  .the incompetence of an official and the senility, of the Board of  torks.   Only the exceedingly healthy climate in which we live can  'event the outbreak of an enedemie.    The situation is so serious  at the citizens are justified in taking extreme action.    It is sur-  ising that greater effort has not been  made  by' the  public to  medy this state of affairs.  MAYOR TAYLOR.  When Mayor Taylor was'elected to office he had the '*'reconviction of the Engineer's Department'' and "adequate sewerage"  planks in his platform, and it must be said, in justification of the  layor. that be h;is done all lie possibly could do to accomplish this  Id',    lie has been supported  by Aldermen  Stevens.  Roberts. En-  ;rht and MacPhr-rson. but as none of'these aldermen are cm the  ���������ard of Works.- find only form one-thin! of the votine strenirth of  ie Council, it will be seen that there is irreat difficulty in acenm-  tishing the desired end.    But we understand that the seriousness  r the situation'has forced two other aldermen to lay as'de their  ^;rsonal feelings and support, an effort, to reorganize the Engineer-  |<* Department and secure the services of the best engineer obtain-  f'le, irrespective of salary.    If this can be done those who have  ['en pioneering the scheme will deserve the lasting gratitude of the  ������i/.ens as a whole.    If it fails ami we are forced to -go on under  ik  present hap-hazard   system,   then   <4ud   only   knows   Avhat   the  fmlt may be. for it means not only the waste of the city's funds  inadequate and temporary work, hut possibly the. loss of scores  lives.    Infant mortality is always: heavy in the dr'v season, and  |de sewerage on the streets all  over the city will not tend to  %en it.

A Kingly Man.~A7Wise Ruler  and Statesman  Alfred Austin, the poet laureate, bus written a poem ou the  occasion of the King's death  entitled 'The Truce of God" with  a sub-title, "A King's Bequest."  The \erses follow:  Wliai  darkness deep as wintry  gloom  O'ershadows Joyous Spring?  In   vain   the    vernal    orchards  bloom,  Vainly the woodlands sing.

King Alfred the Great; William tbe  Conqueror; Henry, Defender of (be  F������ith; Queen Elizabeth the Brave;  Queen Victoria the Good; King Edward the Peacemaker; George. King of  the Masses. What a list! Mighty  personages; most glorious sovereigns!  Tbe British Empire, the greatest empire in the world's history, should  have an honor roll of rulers superior  to that of any other nation. And so  she has. The list of Britain's sovereigns, a list of mighty and glorious  rulers, adds splendor to the fame of  the long, long story of those who for  thousands of years have offieia lly stc od  out as leaders of peoples and empires.  Among this brilliant line of rulers  one of the most prominent, powerful,  influential and benign was, and is,  "King Edward the Peacemaker."  Long years ago the writer, when a  boy, in a little log "meeting house,*'  joined in prayer for the then Prince of  Wales. Our little company of farmer  Christians joined in solemn supliea-  tion to' the King of Kings that He  would spare and raise (o health from  a sick-bed our, at that time, future  King.  The prayers of the Empire were answered, and the young Prince was restored to health, and to a thankful  company of nations, as the Empire  truly is.  The Prince Consort, the Queen's husband, passed away into the other  world; thus robbing the nation of a  mighty man. a good man. and a wise  leader. Then the true merits of Queen  Victoria had an opportunity to be revealed. Through a splendid period she  ruled in peace and war so successfully  that her empire increased in area and  population far beyond the most sanguine expectations of all but the most  capable students of the sacred writings  'hat foretold ni:d still foretell . future  events in connection with the "whole  House of Israel."  During' the Boer war Queen Victoria  the Good went to her home of rest  and most of the civilized world went  into mourning. Consternation seized  the hearts of many millions of Britons  in all parts cf the world, for the tried  aiiil wise rule;- was taken away at a  'moment of national humiliation. The  burning cpiesticii everywhere asked  was: What will King Edward do? How  will he'measure up to the new and  trying conditions which demand attention, skill, ability, and great personal  influence?  King Edward, in a moment, took hold  of the helm of state and proved himself to be the right man in the right  place. Quickly the war was successfully ended in a manner never equalled  in the history of the human family and  never even approximated except in the  case of the late Egyptian war which  wa,8" gloriously and humanely closed  during the latter part of the rule of  Queen. Victoria, and at the time when  I������ord Kitchener emerged from the desert and obscurity.  Of the many sovereigns of Britain,  King Edward was the most successful  in securing peace to tbe Empire, as  wesl fis safeguarding other countries  from devastating war. No student of  ctirreut history can doubt that he was  the chief factor in saving France from  tbe militant power of Germany  King Edward and his most capable  and responsible ministers of state, in  rapid succession, astutely and wisely  secured treaties of peace and mutual  good will between Japan, Prance, Austria, Russia and Italy.  The act of so dealing with Russia  and Japan contemporaneously as to  gain the positive good will and potential co-operation of both of these great,  empires was an act that in itself was  enough to make a glorious name for  all time to come. Not only did King  Edward do this deed of marvelous  diplomacy, but be did many similar and  other acts, all of which add to the  splendor of bis short reign.  He is called away to join bis mother,  bis father and hosts of other mighty  ones of elevated human beings. Ami  few ������������������������ IxMleve- in. the continued life'  and activity of those who go to the  spirit land can doubt for a moment  that our Edward the Peacemaker will.  have ample opportunity to use his  splendid spirit nature in higher realms  of activity and usefulness.  Perhaps king Edward was more  powerful at tbe head and heart of the  German Empire in the direction of continuing peace between these two great,  nations than any other factor that  made for harmony and good will. At  all events his mind, spirit, influence  and position, all were used in the higher interests of the human family and  especially of his own people.  Xow, at a lime of national confusion  and in the midst of turmoil and uncertainty King Edward is called away.  We naturally ask the ciuestion which  has come ringing down through the  ages, from the days of King David the  "sweet singer": What will onr new  sovereign do in these trying times and  circumstances of the grand old Empire?    What will he do?  Why. he will play the man. as played  his revered father. He is a king by  right, b.v universal acclamation of his  people, and by the love of his loyal  subjects. And he will not fail us at  this time. The good King has gone,  but he bequeathed a glorious gift to  King George. He has left him a splendid example. He lias left him a manly  spirit. He has shown the way to the-  heads and hearts of nations and peoples. And King George will make good,  as his high-spirited ancestors have  made good, for long ages. It is iu his  blood to make good. He is high horn.  This counts in men as truly as in the  high-spirited Arabian steed, bred upwards through countless generations of  Arabian care and pride. Yes. George,  the loved of the masses, will ring out  the true steel.  And he will not bow his head to Italian. Turk. Parsee. Gautama. Btahin or  Confucian teachers of morals and religion. Herein is now the first and. Keenest trial of his whole kingly life, whether long or short. His staunch, renal,  loyal spirit no foreigner can ijuell.  Were such a thing possible, and actually put as a fact into the history of  Mrifain. troublous times surely and  quickly loliow. A civil strife, equal to  the 'fiercest of past days would be the  result, and calamity would overtake  ninny before national peace could be  had.  However, King George will follow, in  this matter, the lead of his glorious  father, and a loving people will honor  him.  The King is dead. Long live tbe  King!    God bless our King George.  OF INTEREST TO ALL  THE CARD SYSTEM.  Some over-anxious and, we think, selfish employers and others,  are working themselves into a state of frenzied fear and jealousy  because the "Labor" men are introducing the card system. Many  employers would go back to the old slave days, if they could, they  would like to rule their employees with an iron hand. But a  'moment's serious thought will persuade the most prejudiced that  such a condition is far from desirable. Were men better under  slavery? Were they more thrifty as serfs? Was it easier to do business in the Feudal age? Were men better'citizens before, they got  the franchise? There is only one answer, which is a very decided  "No!" The fact is that "unionism*' is a product of the age. It  has been called forth by the remarkable development of the,industrial element. It is the latest step in the evolutionary advance of  social and economic life. When will men learn to accept the in-.  evi tabic in the onward march of civilization. It is vain to seek to  subjugate this element in "society. It is madness to attempt it. It  is suicidal to advocate it. We should welcome the organization of  labor as a natural solution of many of the abnormalities in our  social life, caused by human selfishness and greed, and should seek  to secure through its medium the best possible expression of true  manhood.  GOD'8 LITTLE ONES  Inferior in intellect, weak in will power, low moral conceptions,,  and almost invariably accompanying these is an ill-developed,-  emaeiated body, such are the characteristics of those who are the-  inmates of our jails.  Chief Chamberlain .has expressed as his opinion that we should  not keep our prisoners in the city jail in the heart of the city, but  should provide some place outside Of the city altogether.    .  We congratulate the chief on his suggestion. When an official  in his position suggests these changes, there is some hope that it-  may be accomplished.  We have been contending for months for a complete change*  iu our system of treating so-called criminals. We never take into  consideration that which may have led up to their becoming  culpable, seeking only to punish.  "Punishment" is an admission of weakness. Correction and  reform should be the object of our treatment. It is far better and  more profitable to society in every way to make a person into a good  self-respecting citizen than to simply make them suffer because they  have sinned. We need provision for the building up of their  weakened physical frames. Means to develop the dwarfed intellectual and moral natures. This is possible and is a part of the  public duty to see that it is done. Now that the chief has spoken,  w������? hope the matter will be taken up systematically.  *   ���������    *   ���������  EXPENSIVE HABJT8.  The United States spends annually   in tobacco $!) 10.000,000..  For every dollar spent for educational purposes there are two spent  for tobacco.   Every minute of the sixteen hours of each day which1-  men spend in activity, 23.000 cigars and .10,000 cigarettes are consumed.    About double this amount is spent in intoxicating liquor..  The  amount consumed  in  these  two  useless and  harmful   habits-  alone, if diverted to productive and useful sources, would result  in a remarkable change in the economic life of the country.    It  should be borne in mind that the men engaged in these lines, as-  well as in many others of lesser importance, are engaged iu absolutely   iiou-productive   occupations.     That  they   are  contributing  nothiug to the up-keep of society.   We could well afford to eliminate  many expensive and  useless habits which would not in any way  invade the realm of-legitimate pleasure.  We do not wish to enjoin that class of chronic and  sordid  kickers who would deny to others; that whicii.they do not-cnjoy. ,  themselves,  but  would   point  out  the   fact  that  this  tremendous  amount of the country's wealth is being annually diverted from  productive channels.  ##..#.*���������  COST OF LIVING.  The basis of the cost of living is the supply and .demand of  ''oodstutVs. Tn other words, it depends upon the amount of land  devoted-to raising cereals, etc.. and the number of th owe who are  working at. non-productive labor. The solution would seem to be  tn encourage flic 'tanner" and to discourage all useless and nonproductive enterprises.  Canada has splendid oportunities before her in this regard. We  have vast areas of arable land suitable for farming, and we will,  no doubt, be the granary of the world, ft is necessary that, wise  and careful provision be made to conserve the vast public domain  and put it to the best possible uses.

Many   of  fheni fell or fatally wounded, but. large  numbers made at once toward the open  >-.ea. '"  In a little while they were faced b.v  !he.air ships, the sea surface ships and  the submarines. The Havoc was dreadful but. tlie high "intelligence"of "the  skananks and bravery stood them in  good stead. They in small companies,  wherever possible, mrrouuded and  fiercely attacked the ships on water,  many of which they destroyed; others  dived below to cope wilh the submarines, and many fearlessly attacked the  ..���������e airships.

The conquerors  took all their flocks and wealth of  every sort. At times those who survived were enslaved. They and their j  families served the conquerors, who in  turn found it more congenial to liav3  servants do the hard work of providing food, shelter and clothing, than to  do the work themselves.  From this arose a proud lordly case  and war-loving class, who lived on the  labors of those whom they had forced  , into servitude. In addition they took  i the pasture lands of the conquered, aiicl  thus increased their landed and catt'e  wealth. -  Success led to other undertakings of  a similar character. At times they a-  gain succeeded, and at times they met  similarly strong bands and were defeated:  In some eases treaties were entered  iuto by several tribal groups for mutual self -protection, .and. for 'the avpid-  ance of internecine strife:  Wise and fearless leaders arose, and  these often so prevailed by force of  arms and diplomacy, as to make very  large and powerful combinations  which correspond in life" customs and  government to earth existing govern -  'ments:  Through several thousands of years,  these changes, growths, exterminations  and powerful federations continued until one central government emerged  which was strong enough to bear down  all opposition, and force all countries.

A long time ago, when the medical  profession was running mad on the  subject of microbes, and    had  to go hungry, and let the money lords  luxuriate in their rich and delicate repasts.  Like all other fashions and fads, a  revulsion of feeling visited Mars, and:  microbes fell into disrepute.

It  is not in any way a shame to live at  the govei priH-Ti's charge, as there is  none so maintained except :t'he worthy.  These are honored as any other class.  tCo able bodied man or woman can remain on Mars without earning a fair  living. Such a person when found.  ^s warned at on^-e. and then forced to  work or die. Bnt no healthy ironworker is permitted to continue in  life on Mars. Hence those who arc  fed. and comfortably sheltered and  clothed b.v the government, are classed  as worthy: and rightly feel no shame.  Fenlfh on Mars is as nenrly perfect  as the organic 'structure of any beings  ran he. The entire surface of Mars is  regulated for health purposes, as are  the irregatlon areas of earth for pro -  duct ion purposes.  Of the .central government, one of  rhe most valuable and influential jnem-  hers is a medical officer, an exner -  ienced expert, of ihe most reliable  character.

The principal difficulty  -collected with their employment is  that of joining the ends of the belt.  These ends are now provided by the  makers with steel plates which need  simply to be screwed together. It is  necessary to use steel of special quality and temiier. It is advantageous to  cover the belt wheels with coarse canvas, to which thin slices of cork are  attached, in order to prevent slipping.  . The cork lasts practically forever and  reduces the sliding to less than one-  tenth per cent, of the travel. Professor Ka in merer has experimented with  a steel strap, two-fifths inch wide and  one-fiftieth inch thick, with two  wheels, eight feet in diameter, for the  transmislon of 16 horse-power, with a  tension of 440 pounds. Although the  wheels were not covered, they worked  very silently, even at a speed of 200  feet per' second. The maximum slipping was one per cent, of the travel,  ���������ami the los of energy nue to this cause  was inappreciable.  Steel belts posses the following advantages: The energy is transmitted  without slipping and almost without  loss; the belts do not stretch, their  width, may be reduced to within one-  third and one-tenth of that of leather  Ibelts, transmitting the same power,  consequently the wheels may be narrower and lighter ana the workshop  'less darkened by them. The steel  lielts do not deteriorate appreciably,  they, may be used in damp places and  do not appear to be attacked by smoke  or acid. They allow the attainment of  velocities of 100 feet pet- second, and I  are consequently very suitable for use'  with turbines. The required tension is  one^tenth less than that of leather  belts transmitting the same power, be-j  cause of the difference in weight, from  which results an additional economy,  owing to the diminished friction on the  hearings. Much room can be saved by  using steel belts because their efficiency does not depend upon their length.  They can be used horizontally iii place  of gearing. The makers assert that  they cost les than leather belts of good  quality.  The oldest steel belts have been in  service two years. In a Berlin factory  a leather belt 24 inches wide was re-  placed by a steel belt four inches wide  in. the principal streets, one should  everywhere have enough light to read  a paper by; which is the standard of  illumination adopted in the principal  streets of the large cities of' England  and continential Europe.  Much of the faulty street lighting in  Canada is chargeable to the method  commonly employed for measuring  street illumination. The usual plan  U to measure the light half way be -  tween the lamps with the photometer  disk held normal to the ray; and naturally, the tendency of competitors  for the lighting contracts is to secure  the specified minimum at as low a  maximum as possible. Indeed, certain J  types of illuminants have been deliberately specialized for the purpose of  going two - hundredths or three-hun-  dredths of a foot-candle at a distant  point.  been designed as they should have  been. not. to give a special form of illumination, but to give the best efficiency of which they were capable, it  would be possible to make them lighl  not only widely distant parts of the  street, but the whole street. While  it is not. desirable to attain to uni-  formity with a low average of light.  It is equally undesirable to concent  irate the light at. certain points separated hy long stretches of compara -  live darkness. Summing up. the important points to .bear in mind, are.  first, that streets are lighted for the  people to use; second, that the streets  should be lighted wit]h reference to the  particular use which is going to be  made of them; and third, that, speaking generally, all the streets should be  more brilliantly lighted than is cus-  tomary in Canada to-day. .-  ���������     ���������  for  many years Minister of Public Works  of .Manitoba, who died in 1891, and his  mother Eninia (Davidson) Brown, sis  ter of the lien.

To the Investing Public:  We wish to call your atentiort to the  interest manifesting itself ;in the oil  situation in California.  Quite a number of our citizens have  availed themselves of investments we  have recommended, and are well pleased with the results.  Having a clientele of over two hundred satisfied customers, quite a number have already visited the field, and  peak in glowing terms of the situation.  You will notice by our daily papers  I that there are quite a few of our citizens that aie buying oil lands and  forming companies to operate. Stocks  will be offered to the public, and no:  douJbtJ.nose..tnMaj!.e.npAeBtly.^manage4.  ers. We undertook about two years  ago to bring the California oil situation before the investing public, and.  as stated above.; hftye more then made  good to our clients, being still in a  position to offer some stock? of unusual merit, and being in close touch  each day with the field, also operating  ourselves, we feel sure we can assist  you in choosing companies that are being properly managed which we are  sure wil make good.  There will be an immense anionnt  of money made the next few years.  New wells are beinp drilled, and some j  are, already completed that are flowing ;  from 20.000 to IIO.OOO barrels ner day. i  One well came in that produced over i  ISOO.OOO in two weeks for the fortun-j  ate owners. I  Now   is  the  time to  get  in   if  you I  want to realize the big profits, and thei  only place to invest in oil is wehere j  the cil is found.    If the same amount  of horse sense was followed in oil investments as in buying   a house, that  is to say. looking tip the reoards.,ett'..  more people would be pleased witii the  results, but so many take for granted  what some ageut telfs them,  and  do  not investigate for themselves.  AVe have pictures taken by ourselves  and also maps of the proven sections  in our office, and shall deem it a favor  to give anyone particulars regarding  the situation which we are specialists  in. Even if you do not invest through  us. a good heart to heart talk may  save you the loss of your hard-earned  money.  There is no money more honestly  made than that taken from mother  earth, .whether it be in mining for  minerals or oil. and the parties that  get in right are bound to be the ones  that, will be fortunate 'in, laying by  something   for the days to come.

Evangelist Matheson is a forceful and a very earnest  speaker and this grand trait alone is  a force that carries great weight.  Evangelist Osborne, under whose good  work Evangelist Matheson was converted, is also one of those practical  and earnest speakers touched by the  Master's band and called from the  eveiy-day walks of life to labor in His  work.  On Sunday hist splendid crowds attended these meetinfs held in the Empress theatre in the afternoon and  evening.' the church being considered  altogether too small and tbe big audience certainly proved the change as  right.

They  are both dressed fantastically in  clothes which have been designed and  worked upon ever since the vessel  sailed. How they get on board Is unknown, at least to the captain, Who  -meets them and gives them permission to go ahead. An immense tank  made of canvas is rigged up, and here  the initiation of all the candidates  takes place. Devices for getting the  candidate into the tank vary on different ships and on different occasions. Often he is simply picked up  and thrown in. Frequently he is  made to sit down in a "barber's"  chair close to the edge of the tank,  and when as much soap' as possible [  has been put into his mouth and eyes  he is tipped over backward. Generally  the /soap has been mixed with tar,'  coal', oil and many, other ingredients  and is impartially applied from the  waist up, so that the bath is needed.  - In the tank the candidate is attended, sometimes by "bears" with shaggy i  coats made of unraveled rope and '���������  sometimes by "cops", who act as the  king's assistants and see that the candidate, is held under water long enough  to know it. ���������"''��������� ��������� ���������''���������-.���������.*-"-  It is a great frolic, prepared for days  in advance, and  when it is over thet  certificate is issued and' the candidate's;-  are free to got themselves as cleah' sis  they  can  before .the next roll call.

Aldermen  Whiteside and Stevens evidently have  put. ginger Into their ward.   Shake!  Mr. Pil. Coy, son of Dr. W. F. Coy, I  Westminster avenue, is expected home  next week from  Montreal, where be  has been studying at McGill University. ....-mm**:-.     ���������        *.  Dr.  Roland P.

Mrs. Rutledge and family, who have  been visiting Mrs. Rutledge's parents,  ,..M.r.,,an_&M.L8.JHm^^  west, left for their home in Portage la  Prairie on Tuesday.  Gold watch, hunting case, with fob,  between Westminster avenue and  Fourth and Arbutus. Return to the  Western Call.  Miss Marshall has certainly made  progress in the millinery business in  Mount Pleasant. All she can handle  in her limited place of business. We  hope to see her in one of the new  blocks going up. Mount, Pleasant can  compete with down-town in millinery.  Miss Marshall, in her quiet, unassuming way-is developing a business worthy of patronage.  Mr. and Mrs. Henry James of Mount  Pleasant, left on Wednesday on an  extended tour through the eastern  provinces. They expect to be absent  some five months.  The concert at Kitsilano Alethodist  church on Tuesday was a treat. It is  impossible to go over the separate  numbers, but we hope the concert will  be repeated iu the near future.  JUNIOR LEAGUE BASEBALL  The Mount- Pleasant and V. A.. C.  Juniors locked horns in a game of  baseball at the Cambie street grounds  and the boys from the Mount came off  vicors. The class of work shown by  the youngsters is of a class that bodes  well for future baseball in Vancouver.  At times it was of a classy sort. The  score of t* to 8 shows tor itself the  ability of the teams in comparison.  Messrs. Shore & Moodie are opeii for  business at 211 Harris. They tare carrying the best lines of meat. Mr.  Moodie Is counted one of the best  butchers on the coast and can satisfy  the most exact ins.  Over $1.f>00 was raised on Sunday at  the dedication services in Mount Pleasant Baptist church toward wiping out  the floating debt. It is anticipated that  the necessary $1000 will be raised without any difficulty.  DIAMOND DOTS  The Y. M. C. A. should hang out  siens telling the boys to send along  turkeys instead of fowl.  Considerable excitement was manifest when Mount Pleasant got. the lead  and there was quite a bit of anxiety  when the V. A. 0. boys went to bat  for their last innings. But it was  short lived as they were blanked.  White Curls at short for Mount  Pleasant works well all the time.  The Vancouver District Council.  Royal Templars, will meet in Oddfellows' hall, on Wednesday evening.  Election of officers, the formation of a  Union Sele.et Degree and other important business will be considered.  The little V. A. C. catcher certainly  shows some class in his work. He has  a good eye.  It  was  a stinger that    the    Mount  Pleasant twirler caught on the jump.  Wonder  who  pays   for  those  holey  window  panes.  THE ROYAL BAKERY ANB CONFECTIONERY  2CTflDpC  430 WESTMINSTER AVE    (Opp. City Hall)  OltlllLd  MT. PLEASANT, COR.
