No. 51  HERE AND THERE  SEWERAGE SYSTEM  IIavi! we  any-system  of sewerage in   Vancouver?    This is a  question of more than  passing importance to the Citizens ol: Vau-  ��������� cuuver.    The sewerage problem is usually viewed as one of supreme  .significance by Cities all the world over and Vancouver should be  no exception."   It was stated in no uncertain terms by one ol: the  'nldermen at the last: meeting of the City Council that "then: was  no comprehensive plan or system of sewerage iu this City and that  the Kngineer was working at random.''   And further, "that upwards  of $400,000 was now Iving in the Bank to the credit of the Sewerage  By-law."    And again", "that *11.000 of Sewerage money had been.  taken to direct a stream of water from its natural course into a box  ���������drain.    That this drain, while constructed last year, had never yet  been used, and that the money was wrongfully used and foolishly  spent,in spite of the great needs of the City for sewerage."  Such a condition of affairs, if correct', demands drastic action  ���������on the part of the Council, an should cause the Public to pay more  than passing attention to the question. The Medical Health Officer  has repeatedly warned the authorities that there was the. gravest  ���������danger of an epidemic of disease unless some action was taken to  properly sewer the city. In the face of statements of this kind the  Council" cannot afford to allow any personal attachment to the Engineer to interfere with a proper investigation. The present Engineer has been in office some five years and has had sufficient time to  get into shape, a good plan of sewerage, capable of sewering the  city. He has ample funds, there being enough on hand in the Bank,  now. to do more work than could be done in two ami a half years.  if spent at the rate of last year. The Citizens demand it, the Medical Health o'/^cer has given his warning, members of the Council  have urged attention and in the future, whatever loss of health or  funds may occur must be laid to the floor of the majority of the  Council. '       ���������        7 , 7- ���������  ANOTHER VICTIM.  Once more we are called upon to stand helplessly by and witness  a tragedy. A bright young life cut oft' in the twinkling of an eye.  Another offering on the alter of modern greed. It costs too much  for Electric Companies to insulate their wires'sufficiently to make  them nndangeroxis. It is too expensive to put in a heavier copper  wire and thus limit the current. It is an awful price we are paying  for .our so-called modern conveniences. Poor, little 11-year old  Clarence Miller is dead, that is all there is to it, No one will he  found to blame. Possibly no one individual is culpable. ��������� ThelTespou-'"  sibility rests upon us all; We demand certain things and extend  eertaiir jirwileges aniPjtheregulartoid of death is the price we^pay.  Instead of placing''a preinltim/^  largest dividend, we-should encourage the development of the safe  accomplishments of these required ends independent of their, immediate cost. The present system of stringing Avires in this city is  little short of a crime and as long-ns it is tolerated will demand its  regular tool of death.  B. C. ELECTRIC TRACKS.  The onestion of who was responsible for the repair of the streets  between the car tracts was brought up in Council last Monday, and  \ Granville street and portions of .1 lastiugs street, were cited as illustrations. The B. C Electric stated that they would repair them when  they got time. It is the same old story, the Company do what'they  like and in their own peculiar way, irrespective ot any agreements  which they may have with the City. The agreement place the Company to "keep'.' in repair that portion of the street between the  tracks. Some of our main thoroughfares are an utter disgrace to  any eity. All along the track are great holes, hideous to look at  -;-^and-exe.eedi-������gly---<i������ngtuH>ns-t.o-V-eliiuid.ac..tra^ii.!7:Hp3v long, oh, long-  suffering Public, how long will ye bear it? a  ALDERMEN DEFENP THEMSELVES.  No one will deny the aldermen the right to defend their honor  from careless, if not bitter, attack by public speakers. At the last  meeting of tbe Council, Aid. Whiteside brought up the matter of  certain remarks alleged to have been made by speakers at a recent  meeting in Grandview, charging the Council with "Trickery" and  of having some "schemes/' etc.. in, regard to False Creek. The  position of a public man is fraught with quite sufficient difficulties  and is thankless enough without having any unwarranted attacks  made upon them. It Mill keep the average man busy doing his  duty to the best of his ability without being forced to defend his  character against, subtle iuuendoes on the part, of those avIio may  differ from them.  The Council were perfectly right in demanding that the speakers on this occasion state wherein the trickery, etc. lay. Who was  guilty and of what were they guilty? No selfrespecting man wishes  to rest under any such veiled imputation and is entitled to a proof  of the charge or a public retraction.  SEATTLE PROBLEMS.  -The foloAving table will give an idea of what our enterprising  neighbor is doing in the line of Public Works :���������  In the construction of sidewalks in Seattle aud grading. Seattle  iu the last ten years put in a total of 751.88 miles. Avith a total cost  of $9,1)45.47:}. 17.

Or.  Lee De  Forest of Wireless Tele-  phone Fame Will Reach  Here Saturday.  Vancouver ia to be. honored by a  visit, from one. of the foremost inventors of the age. Dr. De Forest is a not-  ���������eil electrician and inventor of wireless  telephone and telegraph appliances.  The purpose of his visit is to establish,  wireless telephone and telegraph stations here and to give a series of practical demonstrations and lectures on  this all-important subject which is destined to revolutionize the commercial  world and confer a great boon on so-,  ciety.  Will Erect Tower.  Drr. Be Forest purposes making arrangements while here for the erection  of a large tower for long-distance wireless telephony and telegraphy. He  states that his company will establish  plants for the manufacture of their  oavii appliances throughout the west.  One has already been arranged, for in  Winnipeg which will employ a large  staff and will he a central distributing"  print. The tower to be erected will be  similar to that now in operafiorf at  Detroit, Michigan, which is a-stee|,  tower 350 feet high. It will be possible  to send messages a very great distance  from these towers, which will ultiniat������f  ly result in a cheapening of that class  of. service:  Regarding the intercepting of messages by wireless, Dr. De Forest will  demonstrate the "tuning" deyijc?e>  which are attached to his instruments  and:.^hich^tnjtke������nj^-int^0������PtJWfi$it  terly impossible. The Doctor's n������me.r  o������s devices for attuning instruments,  etc.. have done much toAVard tlie developing of.the wireless systems, and  the wonderful advance being made Iv  this science is largely due to his effort  and remarkable ability..  THAT -Ml������  TO ARRANGE FOR  BULIIEVARDS  The board of works and the Park  Commissioners met Wednesday eve -  nin'g to formulate a scheme to beautify the City by building boulevards and  planting trees. It was decided to do it  under the local improvement plan.  The idea was first introduced by Park  Commissioner VV. R. Owen, who has  been taking an active interest in all  park questions in the outlying dis -  tricts. It is quite refreshing to find a  Commissioner who was broad enough  to see beyond Stanley Park. Much  as we pride ourselves in our great  park, we cannot afford to neglect the  rest of the city, and now that provision is being made to accomplish this,  we hope the citizens will be public  spirited enough to assist in the work..  it is the only way in which Ave can  have a city beautiful."  DEVElliiTS  ON MT, PLEASANT  Judging from the extensive building  operations about to be undertaken ou  Westminster avenue and its environs,  Mount Pleasant will be a busy.-'centre  this /year. S. McClay ���������������������������will erect an  $80,0ft0 structure oil his corner of Seventh and Westminster avenues. It is  understood that a bank will occupy a  portion of the ground floor the balance  to be offices and apartments. J. B.  Mathers has excavations under way  now for a five-story structure on th������  corner "of Eighth avenue, which will be  of best construction. H. O. Lee is also  ^excavating a corner of Broadway for a  large flye-storey modern, block. D: B.  ���������Harris is reported to be planning, a  'fo&evblotek- for the coraer of TeatU to  be constructed this year. The acme  plumbing company have under construction a large warehouse on Tenth  avenue also. This, together with the  paving operations, promises to make  things fairly hum in that locality.  We ha\'e to record another serious  car accident, and it was little short ol  a miracle that it was not fatal in its  results. As it is it Avas quite serious  enough, one man being painfully i lilted...,. A-=heav.H������.joa.ile.iLdray. was, going southward on Granville street.  When near Robson it was compelled to  drive on the car track because the  street at this point is being repaired  Following the dray was one of the B  <.'. Electric freight cars. A Fourth  avenue car was approaching from the  opposite direction. Just as the dray  endeavored to cross over out of the  way of the Fourth avenue car the huge  freight car gave it a push from the  rear, shooting it forward with such  velocity as to,precipitate it into the  front of the Fourth avenue car. The  driver was thrown between the debris  fn a most critical position and' narrowly escaped being killed. As it was he  suffered painful injuries. Those who  witnessed the accident agree that the  driver of the dray ami the motormun  of the Fourth avenue car were not to  blame. The motorman of tlie freight  ear claims he applied his brakes but  his car skidded. Of course it would.  A huge heavily loaded freight car is no  easy thing to stop suddenly. It is almost safe to say that had the freight."  car not been on the streets during the  day no accident would have happened  The fact, of the matter is the freight  car had no right whatsoever to be on  Granville street at that hour..  The city has an agreement with the  B. ('. Rleotric Railway company whereby the company agrees nof to run any  freight cars over the city lines at all.  This agreement, however, is only on  paper and like many other similar  "agreements-it does not count with the  company, nor will it count until such  time as the city forces the company  to live up to the terms of its agreements with the city. In the meantime  these monstrous freighters will plough  their way through our streets, making  the city hideous with their unseemly  bulk and deafening noise, and ruining  the roadbeds with their weight.  G. N. H. BUYS UN  WISE WW  Agents on behalf of the Great Northern railway have been quietly buying  up the balance of the foreshore lots on  the westerly end of False Creek and  around Gore-avenue and- Prior, streets.  the "Call" was able to find Out definitely that nearly all the owners had  accepted the price offered which was  on a basis of $15,000 for each 25 feet  of frontage. It is understood that Mr.  Palmer. Professor Odium and a few  others are still holding out. but even  though it is impossible to purchase  these now. the company will be able to  expropriate and the pi ice paid the  other owners will form the basis of  arbitration proceedings and it. is exceedingly doubtful if any court will  allow any higher figure. Ft may delay  maters for a while but can scarcely  benefit the owners to any great, degree.  The securing the balance of the lots  will somewhat simplify matters as to  the   final   disposition  of  the   head  of  False  creek.     It  is  expected   that  as |  soon as the Great Northern agreement  is ratified it will be an opportune time |  to discuss the  whole question of the!  balance,   and   after  careful   consider:!-1  tion by both the public and the Council, j  deal finally with it. thus permitting a j  definite scheme of development to be I  carried out. i  ANNOUNCEMENT  To   the   Readers   of  The   Cull.���������We  take this means, of telling you we have  secured   the   services   of   Air.   .las. .,!..

IMPERIAL INVESTMENT  CO..   LTD  X'VA   Westminster  Avenue.  Phone 'UT,.  OF INTEREST TO ALL  . CHINA AND THE FOREIGNER.  Exactly ten ��������� years ago the 'Boxer" war broke out in China.  This was a general uprising against/foreigners. The riots of the  past few Aveeks are similar to those of 11)00. It is-a general expression on the part of the common citizen against all foreigners. Tho  usual. vieAV taken in an Occidental country of the situation is that  these barbarous Chinese 'should be "put out of-business," and that  the uprising is merely the result'of savage ignorance. This is entirely wrong, however, and a brief perusal of some of the causes'  will readily dear the mind of the "West" as to the exact situation.  It is well to again emphasize the fact that both the Boxer rising  and the present riots are directed against foreigners. This fact is  significant and should be carefully studied, especially by organizations sending missionaries and by Commercial interests. Why this  dislike of the foreigner? This I Avill endeavor to answer. Having  been in China during the ''Boxer "Avar and taken part in it. I feel  competent to at least give some reasons which, in my mind, are  the cause of this hatred, resulting in riot and bloodshed.   , ���������"   - '  In the firstplace the Chirfese arc "ancestral worshipers." They\  deeply revenance their parents and ancestors. The graves of the  dead are almost an object of worship and are very jealously guarded.  To them it is an alarm ing offence to allow a "shadow" to fall across  a grave, and as a consequence, all grave-yards are out in the open.  This may seem absurd to us. yet why should it? > We have customs  just as ridiculous to a foreigner. It is absurd simply because it is  not customary here, but to-them it is of vital importance and as such  should be respected by all foreigners and visitors. But thi.s respect  is not generally observed, on the contrary, our missionaries go there  and secure a site through their government for Mission House and  erect high buildings and. walls, irrespective.of what ever its shadow  falls across a grave or not holding a supreme contempt for the  "superstition" of tlie 'natives.    .  Another common occurance. which.is. greatly annoying to the  Chinese, is. that the Missionaries are under the protection of their  own government aud are immune from interference hy local authorities, and it often happens that a native will commit some offence aii'd  go to a Mission asking to be taken in as a convert, he thus comes  under the protection of the Missionary and his consul, in this way,  often local administration of justice is defeated, and guilty parties '  go unpunished. Now/the principle of the equity of the punishment  ��������� does not enter in here at all. but simply that a foreigner is able to  circumvent the national authority: Think what an uproar would  occur in Canada if some Chinese/Temple Avere: established here  which was not amenable to our la\vs and which protected those who  had committed an offence against our 'laws, yet this is what actually  takes place in,Chiua."   :.-.  Then again, tip to a few years ago7 the great coast and river  triade ofjQhWAT^^ !y������iili^'   lujrecent years, how-  ever, these have been almost^Teiitirely" su^uinfed hy steamships ,  operated by British and other Companies. Formerly there were lit-  terally millions of men employed in this" Junk" trade, whereas now  with modern appliances this number is reduced to .a minimum. Again,  I ask. think what we would do if our trade were invaded in this way f  Or. do we not at the present, seriously object to the "Asiatic Invasion." and justly so. yet we are asking the Chinese to tolerate a condition whicii we refuse to entertain. ���������;  Then there is the uotorious opium traffic, forced on the Chinese  by the forces of Britain some few decades ago. At the present time  the Imperial Government of China is doing its utmost to free the,  country from this appalling curse. Tlie* most degrading of all the  invidious vices to Avhich man is a victim is the opium habit. Vet it  was forced upon the Chinese by the British for no other reason than  to create, a market and to fill the coffers of unscruplous commercial  interests. Now iu the face of these and other equally aggravating  causes Ave assume to be surprised and shocked at the attitude of the  Chinese. It is only because of her extreme conservatism that China  has so long refrained from asserting herself and it requires no great,  prophetic vision "to coucieve that these rumblings of-discontent oiit ���������  the part of the humbler classes is a warning that the 'sleeping  giant" is awakening and it will mean a mighty upheaval when it  comes. It will result in a re-arrangement of national relationship,  of commerce, of education, of religion and of politics. It will be  an epoch-ujflking period in the World's history and woe to the existing ionizations' if they fail to grasp the significance of the occasion andtreat this great latent power with indifference.  '"���������r,,-  AWAKENING AT LAST.  The "Bulbeek" ease is at Inst awakening the general public to a  consciousness of the utter inadequacy of our system of dealing with  offenders. The "Bulbeek" ease, which has caused this agitation, is  the ease of a little twelve-year old boy. the son of very respectable  parents of Haywood Heath. England, who stole ('.') a lump of coal  out of mischief. He A\as passing a huge pile of coal and picked up  a lump aid was carrying it away when he was caught. He. had no  need of it and was just doing it out of mischief. The value of the  eojil was perhaps two cents. He was brought up before the police  court magistrates and regularly tried as a criminal. His day-school  teacher testified that he was a regular attciidanl at. school and of  excellent behavior. He had never been in trouble before, as was  conclusively proven, and Avas declared by his neighbors, teacher  and clergymen to be honest. trusAvorthy and studious. The magistrates admitted he seemed to be a "good little lad." and the police  bore testimony to his good character. Vet. in spite of this, the  three magistrates sentenced him to the'reformatory for six years and  to receive six lashes from the public constable, anil in addition to this  his father to pay $H.f>0 costs and 00 cents per Avcck maintenance  during the period of the child's imprisonment.  The magistrates who tried the ease Ave re Phillip Secrctan. an ex-  sheriff. Major Farquharsoii and \V. C. Renshaw. two large land  proprietors of the neighborhood.  The coal Avhieh was "stolen" was in a large fuel yard, through  which the public commonly passed, and it is scarcely concievable that  the little fellow dreamt lie was stealing.  It is. hard to imagine that such a barbarous sentence could be  passed by three intelligent men. The fact of the matter is that so  sacred are the rights of property to some small-sotiled individuals,  that they would send ten thousand boys to bell itself rather than  that sacred right should be inifringed upon to the slightest degree.  What had the boy done.' At Avorst lie had taken 10 cents Avorth of-  coal. According to the strictest interpretation of Mosaic haw In-  should only have been asked to pay for it. plus twenty per cent. But  iu our enlightened day, four thousand years after Moses, we condemn a  boy 11  years old to be publicly Hogged aud  imprison him  (Continued on page four.)

These are the guardians of the law.:  and do all the work usually done on  earth by the police. But all told they  do not represent more than ten per  cent of the earth police.  Several elements conduced this bap-.  py state of affairs, the chief of which  rue the following: ���������  1st. No alcholic drinks are permitted, except as may be required for scientific purposes: and when used for  medicinal purposes, the alchol has to  be mixed with other drugs, so that as  ���������a.beverage it cannot be used by any  who might feel inclined to go to  drunkeness.  2nd.. There is only one recognised  religion on Mars and that is very simple. All are taught to believe In an  intelligent Being who rules over all  worlds and /peoples. Nothing more is  taught. All know that their lives are  open to the great Beitisr. To him they  stand or fall, as is their daily attitude  of life and thought.  Apart from this, all people are free  to think or believe as they wish, but  no foblish, schismatic, public teaching  is permitted. Friends may converse  and think as they w������i������'i. but no country  splitting religions and dogmas are permitted in public. In this way their is  not the curse of religious hatreds, and  quarrels common to Musselman and  Christian, Orangeman and Papist.  Hence lewer soldiers doing military  and police work, as are required in so-  called civilized nations ,on earth.  However while at this subject, I  should say that the M:>^i������n������ uuiver  By several devices the sibilant sound-  character was gotten at, one of which  was the image of a serpent hissing.  We lutd previously learned that they  ,iad serpents on Mars.  Suffice St to say we found apt pupils  in our neighbors, and at last we could  talk readily on all subjects; and from  them we learned the following facts :  But first we shall look back, and see  what we were able to know as the re -  suit of the vibratory, astrpmie and~"nu-  merieal communications that had been  carried on for a long time, before facing the difficulties, of establishing a  language, and the very sound of. the  words. ;���������-���������      '  As we were learning, so were the  Marsians. They learned from us, as  ^elf appointed teachers, and in turn  hey became our willing and capable  nasteis to such an extent that we  "earned their language, customs, pop-  llation. and many- important facts of  great, value to the earthborns.  When they answered us at the be-  rinning so readily and accurately, v e  ���������uite knew they were highly intellectual, well educated, trained in the ma -  ferial and mathematical sciences, in-  eluding Geometry, trigonometry, conic  sections, and their application to astronomy and to every day concerns.  That they learned how-to construct  an equilateral triangle, prove the ath j sally with few   exceptions, teach, be -  and 48 proposition of the 1st book of  geometry, we had all the required  proof. They hadferun through all the  sciences of which mankind has any  knowledge, and had mechanical applications we did not possess..  Strange as, it may appear, .we taught  hem the English Language of earth,  tnd from them we learned the Marsian  language as spoken   by    those    with  I whom we conversed.  They gave us picture messages of J of daily history, al! ttyese laws are  some of their intricate, delicate, and, from time to time broken by most of  useful, iustrunisnts which, t^&^.90jpiejL the,jpeople.

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  ���������f stock, as the requirements of the work will warrant. The first of these is for only 50,000 shares,  and. considering..jhe^yaluable^a^mts...pf jhe,..C������mrL-.  pany. the price is exceptionally low. 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 the value 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 to 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 will 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,  ali 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 the 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 becomelone; oJL  the greatest oil producing centres of the West.

"I have given ten years to the geological  study of formation strata*, and anticlinals of the  different oil fields 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 Oiay (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 ail 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.

We have repeatedly raised our voice against this inhuman "system, and do not hesitate to say that we blush to own  allegiance to such a civilization. Our penal system, as at present  administered, is a" relic of barbarism, unjust, cruel, and calculated  to ruin the life for time and eternity.  We convice men, women or children of some petty offem-e, and  commit them to prison, brand them as criminals, make them expiate  their offence by years of confinement, and when the poor creatures  come forth, society, you and 1,- practically everyone, turn our backs  upon them and litre-ally force them back into a life of error. If a  person makes a mistake and is caught, there is one inevitable result, that is, lie is sure to be a criminal before we get through with  him. The whole difficulty lies in our practice of " Punishment'' in  place of "Correction." It is easier, therefore we cling to it like an  inebriate to his.bottle.       -. . ���������-,:.,, .    -  HUGHES GETS JUDGESHIP.  The appointment of Governor Charles E. Hughes, of New York,  to a seat on the Supreme Court Bench of the United States is an  occurrance of more than passing interest. Governor Hughes has  proven himself in politics to be stronger than his party and greater  than his surroundings. Lie is a man that is an acquisition to the  t'ublic life, of the great Republic. It is just such men as Governor  Hughes that makes the grafter and heeler starve for want of opportunity. He was bigger than his "job" and consequently made  good* He will be a distinct gain to the bench, and will be o loss to  the Public life of the country.  It is a question whether he could serve his country best in Public  life or on the bench. We are incliued to think that he was needed  far more as a statesman than as a judge. There is a growing demand  for fearless, conseiencious, capable men in Public life the world over,  ami Governor Hughes was looked upon as a possible candidate for  the Presidency aud the United States does not hold a more able  and honorable man to-day than Governor Hughes, and in whatever  sphere of life he may choose to cast his lot, we are sure that he wdl  give of his best to the public good.  BRITISH SUBJECTS.  The Home Secretary. Hon. AVinston Churchill, has introduced  a bill into the Imperial'House which provides that once a person  be comes a British Subject he is to be recognized as such throughout  the Empires aiid he is to have the free services and protection of the  British Coneul w hereeverlic? may be. It is expected that this Act wdl  have a very strong tendency toward the cementing of the different  parts of the Empire together. . i   ..  We think, however, that it is also another demonstration.ot the  need of a central. Imperial Congress, whose duty it shall be to deal  with all such questions of Imperial moment. The subject of Imperial  Defence will never be solved, until such time as all.the self-governing  Colonies have a direct voice in its administration.  The Naval Bill recently passed at Ottawa, conclusively proves  this. Already the press of the Empire are pointing to very apparent  weaknesses iii it. As long is the little Englander looks upon the Empire as centered in England, as long as the self-governing Colonies  look forward to independent Nationhood, just so long will the Empire be hampered in its most magnificent achievements.. But once let  -he great Imperial spirit become impregnated into the life of all the  iitegral parts of the Empire, and a vision of her destiny open to  overwhelmed by the high ideas of the the minds of our citizens, then we shall produce men large enough to  cause-in whose twrtherance he is en- directthe great.future- of our Empire, and not urtnljjien..  TELEPHONE SWITCHBOARD OVEBLOADED  In reply recently to a complaint as to the nature of the telephone service by a subscriber, the operator or official to whom the  complaint was made, stated that "they were running short-handed,  there not being enough girls on duty to handle the business and that  the-'switch-board! was overloaded." We have been wondering for  some time whv the service was worse than usual (and that is altogether unnecessary) and had concluded that the antequated system in vogue in this cit>? wasunable to cope with 'the growing demands made upon it. It will he remembered that when before the  Council last winter opposing the advent of the Independent Com-  panv7Afr: Farrell stated that 7*his Company did not care if they  got'any more subscribers,;or not." This statement was based on  the fact- that the style ofswitch-hoard used in Vancouver does not  pa\ above a certain'number.. It is fair to assume that that stage has  been reached in Vancouver aud as a consequence, every new subscriber which is added means just that much poorer service to present subscribers. It would possibly have paid the City to have allowed the Independent Company to put in their automatic system. We  might have had a good service even though forced to use two lines.  DOGS  "The dog question is now before the eivie officials. The movement  was instigated by some prosaic and uuroniautic souls who could see  nothing in a dog but an object upon which to heap abuse and a  scape goat for all unexplained depredations. He is to blame for  broken hedges, trampled flower beds, carrying disease and death,  in fact is such an object of abhorence that the wonder is that he  has ever been alowed to live -at all.  l<Ibw there are dogsi and dogs. There is the snarling., snapping.,  mean yellow cur. a terror to children, the tormentor of all passing  drivers, and then there is the dog which is remarkable for his sagacity  and fidelity. He is useful and makes good company. He will protect  children and intelligently Avatch tlie house. Such a dog.is an acquisition' to the community..  We hope the council will take no rash action and make a tax  t    r        which will prohibit a poor man from keeping a dog.   We can. most  Owna" Neb", is more than extineutsh- of us, remember when we delighted in our "doggies" and got hours.  ei* bv the roidi^l deference which' yes years of pleasure out of them, and should not allow the infirmi-  chpo'-ieton h;<s sh^wn toward Pearvi'ties of maturer years to so deaden our sensibilities as to make us  on tbei-- occasion of their many public oblivious to the pleasures of the young. We would suggest a more  meetings. strict collection of-the tax at the present rate, -instead of an increase  and more active campaign against the roving cur. in place of the  regular household pet.    LIEUT   SHAKELTON.   *   However thrilling the average man  may find Lieut.    Shaliekou's    modest  and self - effacing recital of the Ant-  aitic  hardships  and   triumphs of   his  brilliant expedition, it is to the scientist that the English explorers character must assuredly appeal most strongly. No doubt the dare - devil courage  pf the Englishman, whose love of adventure has carried him into the heart  of Africa, the wilds of Australia, and  Ihe mysteries of Thibet, enters largely  into Shakeltons nature. How else could  he have endured the numbing cold and  the pangs of privation? But the sacrifices made during that famous expedition, which brought him within actual  sight of .tie -South..Pole, are essentially  ���������scientific in character ��������� comparable  with the heroism of the man who exposes himself to the stings of disease-  carrying Insects, that   mankind  ,may  know how best to protect itself against  the ravages7of yellow fever and' the  sleeping sickness. His modesty of demeanor and speech, his generous praise  of those who accompanied him, his li-.  berality in donating mineralogical and  ornithological collections to-our museums-(collections made when the desire was strong to abondon them in  the hour of weakness and hunger), and  above all that unwillingness of his to  appear as the rival, to Capt. Scott, his  -former chief, 'which has led   him ���������. to  postpone his   own Antarctic plans so  that Scott may have no difficulty in  obtaining funds^ are all characteristic  of the' unselfish scientist,    in  whom  the  sense  of  personal  importance  ir  gaged.  Scientific.! too. in its purpose is the;  expedition that Shackelton has post-  poned in deference to Scott ; for that  expedition will be undertaken not.  primarily to reach the Pole, but to fa-  thpni-the..mauy mysteries, qf: Ihe yx\ -  known land fronting on the South'In-  dian Ocean.and presenting many scientific and geographic problems1 for  - solution.- By systematically exploring  the coast around Ktng William Land,  a const wnfch has never been carefully  studied from shiphoaid becauseof  floating ice. he will probably determine  once and for all whether there is any  reason for questioning the claims made  by Adm. Wilkes to the first discovery  of the An tart ic Continent. Shackel,-  ton's sense of fair play, his sense of  scientific justice in other words, emi "-  nently fits him for this peculiarly delicate task.  The hearty recognition which Shack-  liton has accorded Peary for the discovery of the North Pole, coming as it  does from. a. man who knows some -  thing of-the rigors oLpolar, exploration, ought to shame the Congress  wMeh refused national honor to Peiry  without proof of the North Pole's discovery. /The doubt which has been  foolishly cast on Peary's exploit by a  congressman whose "farthest north."  as one Washington correspondent  phrased it. is the semi-tropical cold of  <3 i  MT. PLEASANT BUSINESS CHANGE  It will be interesting to citizens of  Vancouver and particularly to the resi  dents and property-ho'ders of Mouir  Pieasant to learn that the large real  estate business which has ben conducted at 2-)")0 Westminster avenue under  the name of Lougheed & Co., has been  taken over entirely by one of the pan-  ners. Mr. A. W. Goodrich, who will continue it under the firm name of A. W.  Goodrich & Co.  Mr. Goodrich needs very little introduction to the investing public as he  has been well aud favorably known  in the city for a number of years and  is exceedingly well informed as to realty values, especially in regards to property tributary to Broadway, Westminister avenue. Fraser avenue and Westminster road where be has made and  wiil continue to make a specialty.  As a gentleman whese advice in  realty maters can be relied en .Mr.  Goodrich tears an excellent reputation and anyone looking for an investment that is safe and yet has possibilities of future increase can make nc  mistake in calling on him at his office  at 2450 Westminster avenue for consultation in regard to such an investment.

VANCOUVER  BRITISH COLUMBIA  Friday, April 29, ttlJ  ii  liri  ill-  in  FIGURES  We are frequently told that Britain  is growing old arid becoming decadent.  Most of those who say and so write,  express their desires but not the truth.  I have seen and studied many lands.  . and so far, have not yet found one  country more vigorous?, prosperous and  promising than the grand Old Mother  Lund which all true Canadians love  and honour.  One hundred years ago, English was  spleen by lees than 25,000,000 people.  Now it is spoken by about 150.000,000.  French was spoken by 30,000,000 one  hundred years ago, and now by 46,000.  000. Germany had to its credit 36,000,  000 then, and now has 70.000.000. Spain  41.000,000 now, then 30.000,000. Italy  IS.OlMi.ooo then. 32.000,000 now.  And just as the English language has  made such wonderful growth in the  past century, so have the Saxons in -  creased in power, wealth and population. Never in the history of mankind  has any single race made a headway  so remarkable, and the increase is as  rapid now in all material things as  ever in the past.  The British Empire has in shipping  a tonnage of 17,500.000. more than the  lest of the world. This is not a very  marked sign of decadence. The Anglo Saxons have much more shipping  than all the rest of this round world.  ��������� and in the last hundred years the  nxuny Saxon nations have practically  ccme into existence from the loins of  the Old Home. Every year, so far  back as I can remember, this strange  devcuirer and absorber of nations,  tribes and peoples, has united under  the Union Jack one or more stretches  of territory. And the process is steadily going forward, in harmony with the  'promises made to the founder of our  empire far back in the days of Abra -  ham.  At the present time. Great Britian  has a mortgage on the nations of the  ���������earth, running far up into the thou -  sands of millions ; and the annual interest pouring into her coffers is measured by hundreds of millions.  And still eyery nation on earth is  borrowing from the old purse of the  "mother of nations." Yet we are told  by many that Britian is. growing ' old  and decrepit. True she is old. So is  light and gravity. So i3 the Almighty.  :'! Age cannot make a nation decadent.  Nothing but sin can do that.  Grand, glorious, mighty, prosperous,  irresistible Britannia ; unique aitd  splendid among the nations! Go on.  and live on the fruits of increasing  national righteousness forever, and in  the end rule all nations, as long ago  was foretold of the seed of Joseph and  .ludah.  E. ODLUM  THE  BLIND GIRL'S OOXOLOGY  1 They tell me that the sky is blue,  j    The rose is read, the lily white,  that   the   stars   come   peeping  through  The sable curtains of the night.  I And  I cannot see them; for to me  There is no sky, no lily white.  The gloom and darknes of my night.  There is no day for me���������the night.  The changeless night, is all I see;  And you know the lily's white,  Know not how long that night can  be.  Hut hope a torch Is holding high���������  Hope born of faith in Calvary���������  That in those mansions in the sky  The  sightless  eyes  at  length   shall  see.  And so a paean of delight,  A shout for blessings yet. to be,  Salutes the solitude of night  With faith's devout doxology.  "Praise God from Whom all blessings  flow,"!  Praise God that sightless eyes shall  see,  Praise God that darkened souls shall  know  The glories of eternity.  ���������Rev. Eugene B. Read in Christian  Observer.  A STRANGE JUMBLE  A well-known divine. Dr. Mudge, had  been presented with a gold-headed  cane, and the same week a patent pig������-  killing and sausage-making machine  had been tried at a factory in the place  of which he (the Dr.) was pastor. The  writer of a report of the presentation,  and a description of the machine, for  the local paper, is thus made by the  printers to "mix things miscellaneously": "The inconsiderate Saxtonian who  made up the forms of the paper, got  the two locals mixed up in a frightful  manner. We went to press something  like this:  Rev. Dr. Mudge's friends called upon  him yesterday, and after a brief conversation, the unsuspicious pig was  siezed by the hind legs, and slid along  a beam until he reached a hot-water  tank. His friends explained the object  of their visit and presented him with  a very handsome gold-headed butcher,  who grabbed him by the tail, swung  him round, slit his throat from ear to  ear. and, in less than a minute the carcass was in the water. Thereupon he  came forward, aud said that there  were times when the feelings overpowered one: ami for that reason he  would not attempt to do more than  thank those around him for the manner iu whieh such a large animal was  cut into fragments was simply astonishing. The doctor concluded his remarks when the machine seized him,  and in less than it takes to write it, the  pig was cut into fragments and worked  up into delicious sausages. The occasion will long be remembered by the  doctor's friends as one of the most delightful of their lives. The best pieces  I can be secured for ten pence a pound;  and we are sure that those who have  sat so long under his ministry will rejoice that he has been treated' so  handsomely."  Body, a newly established league for  the colonies, has been formed in South  Australia. The Loudon secretary of  the institution states that that body  would be delighted to send more men  to Australia if only because we get the  money advanced for. fares returned  much more regularly and quickly.than  from those we send to Canada.

Interest is aroused in Liverpool by the  suggest iou that, a hotel be provided for  emigrants,who have to wait before the  shipping offices are open, and who are  often exposed to inconvenience by the  lack of accommodation.      ���������  A branch of the Central Unemployed  POLICE DOGS  The annual inspection and review of  the police dogs of Paris was held recently. The foreign correspondent of  the Brooklyn Times thus describes the  occasion: Telephonic orders were sent  out in the morning to all the police officers in charge of police dogs to bring  them up for inspection, and an hour  later twenty-five splendid animals,  highly trained fOr police work, were assembled.  .M. Lepine, the prefect of police, accompanied by a departmental chief, en-  I tered the eonrt yard, and all the dogs  at a sfgnaF from the-tr policemen keepers, gave the three regulation barks.  The animals were then put through  their.paces. A man got upon a bicycle  and pretended to try to escape. A dog.  which had at first been carefully muz  zled, was sent after the fugitive. The  animal, finding it was unable to use its  teeth, kept furiously butting into the  bicycle and did not leave off until it  'iad succeeded fit knocking the ma-  chine over.  The dogs eventually formed fours  and marched past the prefect, much to  the delight and amusement of the priv-  ! ileged on-lookers. The animals turned  about with marvelous obedience at the  word of command. M. Lepine ordered  extra rations of bones as a reward for  the dogs' intelligence.  ^^^^^^Sf^^^SW^^^m^^^^SSy^^^^P^99W^t^9^t]^^^^w^^9w^^^^^m^^^^9^^^^^^^P^W'.SMf ��������� ^ ���������^^^J*^^^y^^an%"^ny ���������*��������������� ^���������F9^^p.9*1qf^Wm *^?mWm*^.*WPn  : .���������.���������'"���������..'���������;..."'���������''��������� 9  Real Estate and Insurance Brokers  2503 Westminster Rd.

HOW TO TREAT A MAN.  By a Horse.  If a man chops from illness, exhaust-  Ion or supping, immediauy proceed to  pound him with a club u.nd wick him in  ihe belly.  ii a man is , loaded beyond his  strength, or don't travel fast enough  io suit you, try the club remedy. 1  know of nothing better for such a  stubborn beast.  , It a man won't drink, if you gire  him a chance, don't .offer him water  iigain for two or three days. He must  be taught to drink, when you want  him to, whether he is thirsty or not.  God didn't' put man's head on 'his  shoulders! to suit U3 horses; so draw  Ills head back with a strap and turn  his eyes up to the sun, just to make  him "look fine". If he has to haul a  hisLload or run fast do not shorten the  strap;. 7..;.-'.  Put an ugly bit in -his mouth -an������  yank the teeth out of his head if h#  makes a motion or step that does not  suit you. A man surely ought to be abl������  to read a driver's mind; we horses are  expected to do that.  Never think of driving a man without a whip, and if you expect him to  have "lite" or "action" use the whip  often and hard.  Half blind the man with hard pieces  of leather, and than kick him roundly  if he stumbles or is frightened at some,  noise behind that he can not see the-  cause of.     It will "quiet his nerves.'  If a man gets frightened at. anything  thrash him good and hard. The terror  inspired by what.he sees is neutralized  by the torture of the whip and so your  man feels neither.  If "you would clothe a man"~'ptt't~7a  small blanket on his back only; do not  cover him with a good, generous blan-:,  ket. for it will make him "tender." "'  These suggestions I give to my fellows because of my-long experience as'  i> man's servant.    Now,    though I am  Pittsburg, April 13.���������There are so  many gentlemen convicts among the  700 prisoners of the Western Pennsylvania penitentiary that .Mr. John Francis, the warden, today announced that  the stripes are to be practically abandoned at that institution. The conspicuous prison garb only serves to embitter men, said the warden, and  makes it more difficult to reform. Neat  suits of blue, with class letters on  them, are to be substituted gradually  for the stripes, and only the very worst  behaved men are to be punished by  uniform^ of the "zebra" type.  At present, however, even a bank  president and two former councilmen  are wearing, the humiliating prison  clothes.  It is not the uselessness of the present system of punishment and humiliation as a prevention of crime that has  induced the authorities of this prison  to change the garb of the prisoners but  the fact that a number of "gentlemen"  are now prisoners. If any man be adjudged guilty ot\crime and is elligible  for punishment, it is the wealthy offender. Men whose circumstances and  condition did not deprive them of  means of a livlihood, but seemingly  these are the men who must be treated  with difference. It is our contention  that the present system of punishment  is wrong and we should substitute for  it a system which would tend to remove the causes and treat incorrigibles  as we treat our inmates of hospitals  and asylums. That is. for a moral disease. Treatment, of course, will vary  with cases. Bui to say because a man  was a wealthy offender, therefore he is  to be treated differently from a porter  man, is to say the least absuid and unjust. It were just as wise to say to a  man who had the lever, that because  he was wealthy therefore he need not  take-any disagreeable medicine', etc.  | Let our treatment of this unfortunate  class of society be uniform, equitable  and scientific.

Washington, April ;V. ��������� Immediate  action looking toward negotiations for  a reciprocity treaty with Canada will  probably follow a conference which  President Taft arranged with the leaders of the ways and means committee  of .the house. Representative Payne,  chairman of the committee, will handle  the committee end of the matter.  <s The President desires an early favorable report on the resolution introduced by Representative Ames, of Massachusetts, which declares in favor of  opening negotiations with Canada immediately. While the President could  open negotiations himself without  authorization from congress, he feels a  debate on the floor of the house would  benefit the plans of the administration.  If the President is unable to persuade  the ways and means committee to'report the bill, Representative Ames declares he will circulate a round robin  on the floor of the bouse in favor of the  report.
