 ARE YOU ON OUR LIST?  NO! WHY?  Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province  VOLUME II  VANCOUVER. British Columbia,   JULY 1,  1910.  No. a  HERE AND THERE  FALSE CREEK BY-LAW.  The by-law authorizing   the   transfer to the Great Northern  lilailway of sixty-one acres of land on the north shore of False Creek  find the giving of a deed in exchange for a lease for the sixty-nine  pcres on the south and east shore has been confirmed by an overwhelming majority at the polls on Tuesday last.      To Aid. Hepburn  belongs the credit, largely, for the .consummation of this by-law.   He  pas done a great deal of hard, tedious work in connection w'th H,  Ijind although we do-not agree with the details of the agreement, still  jwe feel we would be insufferably narrow if we did not, in common  [with other citizens, gratefully acknowledge the work done by Aid.  ���������Hepburn.     Up to the'time of tlie publication of the criticism of  [the agreement in pur last issue, there was practically no opposition  Jto'the agreement, but with its. publication came such a storm of  (abjection that for a time it looked as if the by-law would have diffi- .-  Iculty in securing the required three-fifths majority.      However,  Ithanks to the magnificent organization of those interested in the  Vpassing of the by-law and the strong sentiment in favor of some im-  pnediate activity, the measure easily carried. ���������''' ' . '  I      One very noticeable feature of this campaign was the common  expression of opinion by the supporters of the by-law to the effect  I" that we wanted present prosperity and let the future take care  nf itself."    One man expressed it in the following terse but rather'  tloarse manner:   "Give me good times now and immediate benefit,  Ivnd to h withgthe kids! Let them root for themselves."  Another  [.aid: "What has the future ever done for me?"  Such expressions are characteristic of youth and prosperity,  it does not necessarily follow, though, that such reasoning is the  oundest and wisest.  The people have now expressed themselves with no uncertain  oiee and the responsibility belongs to them now as to the future.  PUBLIC QUESTIONS AND PUBLIC MEN.  What is the duty of a man in public office when, anf.import ���������*'  tuestion is before ;the people for consideration?-' Is:it7his:duty to-  lake a definite stand and fearlessly express his views or has he the  privilege of remaining non-committal until the public have expressed  Ihemselves and 'then take the the most popular side. This question  luggests itself as a result of the recent sharp campaign on the False  lireek question. Aid. Hepburn fearlessly and ably supported the  i������reemeut and. he deserves credit for it. Aldermen McBride and  Ixevens just as outspokenly opposed the agreement and fought on  (very opportunity. The other aldermen must have had their own  liews. yet on no occasion, with the possible exception of Aid.  (Snright, did they choose to let the public know their views. Why  :as this? Was it fear of publie opinion, or was it modesty? ;In  friy case it should be considered as part of the duty and responsibility of a public man to state to his constituents his particular views  |f the case under discussion. The great mass of the public as a  Lie are fair and respect a man who does not hesitate to let them  blow where he stands and although they may differ from him, they  j/ill bear no grudge.  . POSTAL ^AOXWTTO..^^^^^^^^^^,^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^,   .,  .     The Postal Department is in Canada a paying concern.     It is  Ight and proper that it should never be designed as a revenue producer.     At present there are certain provinces which only get 80  \>r cent, of the revenue of the postal department expended in the  |-ovinee. while other provinces get as high as $1.53 for every dollar  'revenue.     The following is a list of revenue and expenditure per  ftovincc:  l!   British Columbia gets 97 per cent, of the revenue; Alberta 93  |>r cent.; Saskatchewan 94 per cent.; Manitoba 88 per cent.; Ontario  P per cent.; Quebec 92 per cent.; New Brunswick 129 per cent.;  fova Scotia 124 per cent.; Prince Edward Islaud 153 per cent.  l    Thus it will be observed that tbe new and sparsely settled dis-  -Icts are contributing more revenue than they receive back, while  lie old Maritime Provinces are receiving in one ease over 50 per  ];nt. more than they raise. #  j One of the greatest and most potent aids to developing and  fittling a new country is good postal service, and if there is to be  ly discrimination at" all. it should be in favorof the West, which  fc developing so rapidly. We are contributing much to the wealth  E the Dominion and it is about time that the Federal authorities  |riously undertook the problem of assisting in our expansion. We  fere promised rural postal delivery prior to the last election, and  ���������wagon was actually started, which was declared to be the nucleus  I a system to be immediately installed, but, like the old election cry  | the Georgian Bav Canal, this is doomed to the uncertain realms  futurity. If the members from the Western Provinces would  could agree to sink their party affiliations for the moment and  Kite upon this question, there is no doubt but that it could be  iNlized, but as long as the party whips are able to pit one against  |^ other, it is a hopeless task.  JOURNALISM AND ETHICS. __  v Every craft and profession is supposed to have its code of ethics,  lid each member of that craft or profession is judged by the manner  | which this code is observed. The journalist is not exempt from  lis rule; he is, however, often able, under the guise of doing a public  Jrvice, to deal a very severe blow to some person or company towards which he may have some personal spite. Recently an advertising agent of a certain journal called upon a newly organized com-  K.ny to secure some advertising and was informed that "the  Impany were not intending to do any advertising at present, as  le object of the company was to interest only a few business men  I a scheme to develop certain natural resources and that when the  Impany had something of a definite character they would consider  }e matter of advertising." The advertising agent drew attention  other similar companies who had full page "ads'' and pressed for  ^contract, but was refused.  I    It may have been a coincident or otherwise, but the next issue  [.that journal came out with a nasty little squib reflecting upon the  Impany in  question.      The article was hardly libelous but was  uite  sufficient to materially injure1 the company.      Many  news-  -pers consider that they hold a perpetual brief to kuock anything  Iv evervthing whicii happens not to exactly suit the proprietors.  *e promiscuous exercise of this power is to say the least, cowardly  Id'unjust.   Every man has the right to a fair investigation and to  considered square until it can be proven that he is otherwise.  lere is a vast difference between discussing a great public issue and  Rldm" up to ridicule some private enterprise, and this part of the  {lies of journalism could well he observed with more faithfulness  [an is evidenced by some of the issues which have recently come to  ���������url.  [NEW ERA OF  AERONAUTICS  IN AMERICA  It is a'7 curious anomaly that, although America ia the birthplace of  the practical flying machinerr-a distinction which is universally admitted  and stands in little danger of future  disputation���������the further development  of the art of flying, as first demonstrated by the Wright brothers, has hitherto been, confined mainly to Bhiropeaii  countries. To us, it has always seemed improbable that our . apathy was  more apparent than;; real; and ^thai,-  when sufficient stimulus was offered,  the art of aviation- was sure to come  into its own; and its development be  prosecuted with a zeal that was worthy  of the energy and liberality of the  country in which the first practical  machine had its birth.  Evidently, the needed spur has been  ifforded by the ��������� phenomenal achievement of Glenn H. Curtiss iii making  his recent flight from Albany/to New  York at the unprecedented speed of  over fifty miles an hour���������a feat which  vindicated both the fajp-sightedness and  the liberality of the New. York World;  in offering a prize ot $10,000 for such  a flight in connection with the recent  Hudson-Fulton festival.  Apart from the fact that so great a  distance was covered at so high a  speed, there are other considerations  which largely account for the powerful  hold which this flight has taken upon  the public imagination; such, for instance, as the' altogether untried nature of the course, the almost compete absence of suitable landing places  and the absolute composure with  which, wheu ;ari emergency landing  had to he made, the aviator circled  in his path7 swooped down, bird-like,  upon a small open clearing above the  rocky N.anjj};-.Jiill-covered cliffs, landed,  started again on the final leg of his  course above the crowded shipping of  the North River, and finally came to  rest on Governor's Island at the very  doors of the house which was built  for him during the Hudson-Fulton aeronautical contests. Here was a man  who, at the very first trial, and over a  course which, because of the encompassing mountains and ravines and the  resulting air currents, was believed to  be exceptionally difficult, accomplished  with evident composure, and at times  with a suggestion of complete sang  froid, a feat of flying which, only six  months before, was regarded as a  dream of the enthusiast.  When the news of his accomplishment was flashed throughout the'country, its effect was instantaneous and  positively electric. The last doubt as  to the practicability of long-distance,  cross-country flying vanished1; and the  evidence of the awakening was shown  in the almost immediate offer of over  $100,000 in prize for flights of a similar  character, to be held during the present season in various parts of the United States. First came the simultaneous and munificent offers of $25,000  by the New York Times and the Chicago Evening Post for a Chicago-New  York flight of about 960 miles, and of  the New York World and the St. Louis  Post-Dispatch of $30,000 for a St. Louis-  New York race over a 1,000-mile  course. Then the Washington, D. C,  Chamber of Commerce and tlie Aero  Club of Washington offered $20,000 for  a 225-mile race from Washington to  New York; and as we go to press, a  $10,000 prize is being promoted in St.  Louis for a flight from that city, over  a distance of about 250 miles; to Kansas City, and $5,000 is offered for a  flight over a 250-mile course from Indianapolis to Chicago.  Such are the attractive prizes that  have teen made available within a  week ot Curtiss's flight, to promote  long-distance feats of the same character. At the same time, through the  liberality of Mr. Edwin Gould, as noted  elsewhere in this jouriml, attention is  being directed to the mechanical improvement of the aeroplane itself, with  a view to enlarging its ability to re-  [main continuously in the air and e>r-  Jter.d the duration of its single flights.

'I/"  Qifford Pinchot, whose retirement  from :lhe  Washington   Government's  service was the subject of much con-  troversy, has been visiting Ireland and  discussing with Sir Horace Plunkett  the conservation and development of  the natural resources of the Emerald  Isle.   The London Times says that Dr.  .James-, W. Robertson, whose services  to this country as    Commissioner of  Agriculture in building up the cheese  trade with Great Britain and in many  otheri^rays, as organizer of the great  Macdonald Agricultural College,   and  in ..numerous other   activities,    have  beeh;;j|as the Times says, and as the  Canaoian people know, of the greatest value to this  country, has been  in Duplin at the same time, and the  interchange  of  views between   three  such;|authorities   will,   to  quote   the  wordS| of the Times,"have an important influence on the subsequent development of the movement."  ��������� DrSRobertson, as is well known, is  prominently identified with the work  of tjjjfe  Canadian  Conservation    Commission,  being  the  chairman of  the  Commission's Committee   on   Lands.  He hf now engaged in making investigations in  Europe  which  will  be  of  value������in connection with the work of  the Commission.   He delivered an address. at  the  recent  annual  meeting  of the County Councils Association in  the Guildhall in London, at which Mr.  Sydney Fisher, the Dominion Minister  of Agriculture, also spoke.   The Times  devotes a leading article, under  the  heading  "National    Estate    Manage  ment,'- to the work, of the Conservation  Commissions in this country and the  United  States.    The  present  British  Government has established a Development Board,  on similar lines, and  the; Times draws several lessons from  Dr. . Robertson's    Guildhall   address,  wfcH^^r'gays-the Development Board  may well profit by.      "The necessity  for the wider extension of knowledge  and of co-operation." says the Times,  is   still   paramount   in   English   agriculture,    although the   old    type    of  farmer  whose* pride- forbade  him  to  take help or information from either  neighbor or stranger is now very fast  disappearing.    The earlier  resistance  to the idea of co-operation    in    the  marketing of farm produce is almost  everywhere   weakening,    under  pressure of native shrewdness, stimulated  by  a generation    of  agricultural depression."  BAD OUTLOOK FGH MANU-  FACTUWeRS:  London���������Referring to tlie long list  of Canadian commercial arrangements  which sprung from the Franco-Canadian treaty the Standard says: From  this point of view the' effect will unquestionably be serious to British  manufacturers'- who can only regard the  outlook as sombre and/ unpro'misinng.  MONTREAL RIVALS NEW YORK.  Washington; D. C, .Tune 11.���������Discriminatory and preferential rates on  grain exports on the Great lakes to  New York are alleged in a complaint  filed today with the Interstate Commerce Commission by the New York  Produce. Exchange against the New-  York Central and other carriers.  It is alleged that the rates discriminate in favor of Montreal against New-  York city, and the commission in requested to so adjust these rates as to  pake New York on an equality with  Montreal.  in reserve for emergency, is certain to  prove-a great stimulus to inventors and  constructors, and should result in the  production of some very interesting  combinations of motive power.  The above resume of the happenings  of the past week surely justifies the  statement that, when the history of  the art of flying in America comes to  be written, this period will stand oui  as second only in importance to those  ever-memorable days, when the Wright  brothers were making their flights  above the sand hills of North Carolina  in the first practical mancarrying and  controllable aeroplane propelled by its  own motor.  OF INTEREST TO ALL  THE CITY MAMOBT. 7p  At the meeting of the Market Committee .on Wecbaesday evening, it was stated by Market Clerk Kelly that it was impossible to  secure the produce to supply the customers, and as a consequence the  market is practically an acknowledged failure.^ The statement was  made that the whole country had gone "land mad," and many farmers throughout the districts of Richmond, Surrey and Langley were  now growing a crop of "weeds and survey ors������ stakes," or in other  words, the farmer had sold at high prices to speculators who had cut  up the farins into five-acre and ten-acre blocks |nd sold them off, but  the purchasers were not moving onto the farms or cultivating them,  and many farms which had been highly cultivated in past years were  now idle. It is claimed that land values are sp high that it would  not pay to cultivate. It is also stated that thousands of crates of  strawberries had been brought in from the Slpte of Washington.  That such a condition should obtain at all extensively is exceedingly regrettable, and it would be well for the various councils,.  boards of trade and other organizations to unite in an effort to correct this state of affairs. Much might be done to encourage the  growing of fruits, etc., and on the other hand to discourage the  prevalence of pure speculation in land. ' \     .  LEST WE FORGET.  The following editorial is taken from the Monetary Times of  the 38th inst., and is apropos to the situation as it at present exists  in British Columbia, and especially to Vancouver, and we heartily'  commend it to our readers: f������  "A month from to-day Canada will have forgotten the Montreal  and Niagara Falls fire disasters, which thisfweek tore from their  vitality two score of human beings. That is|iine of the worst features of the appalling incidents. The nation sympathizes,,and in its  race for dollars, forgets. The collapse of a water tank was apparently the immediate cause at. Montreal, whi<$j������ in turn commenced  fire and explosion. Strictly speaking, the de|th roll cannot be ascribed to fire, but the event comes directly Hfwithin underwriting  spheres and.the need for better building regul$$ious, restrictions and  inspection.        ;   . |S  In the past seventeen months, no less than three hundred and  forty-five persons have lost their lives, either'-'directly or indirectly,  through fires. Presumably must-.be added another twenty-six, the  human sacrifice to negligence, 'lack of inspection:^ carelessness,  either general or individual, at Montreal. Providence is teaching;jus,  by many and increasingly bitter lessons, the folly and the cruelty  of the lack of respect for life and property, which is a typical characteristic of the American continent. . ���������  Such catastrophes indicate to a large extent extreme carelessness  or partial ignorance. The only hope is that the latter is a temper-'  ary stage in our efforts: to learn more. New-towns ,.ogrw. quickly.  Canada boasts. They are swept by fire and rebuilt on smouldering  ashes. The boasting continues. Conflagration again visits, and  the nation finds there is a limit to this economic waste. How many  old buildings in cities which have felt growing pains in recent years,  should be condemned and pulled down immediately! The fire  chiefs and city, engineers should be able to compile a lengthy list. The  swmpathy of all goes out to those afflicted by the Montreal disaster.  Let this .sympathy..take a practical shipe^W the inauguration of  definite steps to reform in building cohditiTOs^and the Ire hfizard^  The dangers should be weeded out and the planting of new wreeds  forbidden."  THIRD DEGREE.  Another step in advance in the treatment of criminals is to be  noted in the appointment of a select committee, by the Congress at  Washington, to investigate the methods of the notorious "third  degree." The "third degree" consists <jf subjecting a suspected  crimiual to a continuous crossfire of questions by expert detectives  for hours at a time, in order to extort a confession or admission from  the victim. Not. only do they question the prisoner, but lie is often  brow-beaten and abused, irritated aud baited into losing his temper  or self-control. Another method is to draw all manner of tragic  word pictures or to enact a tragedy along the line that the detective  suspects the crime was committed. It takes a very hardened character to bear such a course as that of a really up-to-date "third  degree."'It.may be hi-the interestof theeffieiencyof the detective.._  force, but it is a question if it. contributes in "any way towards the  solution of the crime problem. Crime is an economic and social  problem and must be solved by these means, otherwise any remedy  can only be temporary.  CLARK DRIVE SEWER.  The suggested system of sewerage for the easterly portion of the  city seems to be a feasible one. The chief difficulty to the sewerage  of east Ward Five has been to obtain an outlet, the suggestion that a  large trunk sewer be laid along Clark Drive is meeting with general  approval, By following this plan the whole district can be drained  into the inlet and at a point where the current is sufficient to carry  away all the sewerage clear of the shore. ������  In any case the problem is daily becoming more and more serious and we hope that the matter will be kept well to the fore by  those who are now advocating the scheme. It will then ensure the  adoption of some system, whicii is always better and to be preferred  to none at all.  WHEAT, WHEAT, WHEAT.  The whole of Canada is at present deeply interested in the  progress of the wheat situation in the provinces of Manitoba, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. The North-West Grain Dealers' Association estimate the grain areas as follows:  Acres 1909. Acres 1910.  .  Wheat    7.103.300     8.453,200  Qats  4.217.400    ......4.225.800  Barlev      955.250     1.022.000  Flax*    349.340    ......   G30.000  Thus it will be seen that, there is an increase of'wiieat approximating 20 per cent., and in Max of about 80 per cent.  The great increase of flax is-caused largely'by the fact that it  can be grown upon spring breaking, thus ensuring an early return  to the farmer. As regards the weather conditions there are many  varied and confiieting reports, it is generally believed, however, that  the prevailing hot winds which have been sweeping over the prairies  this past week is working considerable damage to the wheat crop.  The farmer fears the hot wind perhaps more than he does the bail.  because it is generally more extensive in its damage. The wheat  market has of late taken a strong upward turn and while there is  nothincr to warrant alarm, there is still sufficient information to hand  to make it safe to say that we need not expect a "bumper crop." The  damage is not widespread as yet. nor is it fatal, but in many districts  it is reported as amounting definitely to 40 per cent. THE WESTERN CALL, VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  ltfft.

GOARD  I  2408 Westminster Road  I  I  PREVENTING  MILITARISM  CAUSES OF THE  RISE IN RUBBER  The Fernie Ledger contains the following despatch from London which is  worthy of consideration:  LONDON, June 4���������For some time  past a movement has gone on quietly  ^counteracting the military side of the  Boy Scouts movement.  A body known as the ational  Peace Scouts, is already in exstence  wth between 60,000 and 100,00 members, who consttute a boy's order of  chivalry, free from all militarist character and concerned only in the promotion of themental, moral and physical well being of boys.  Amongst the promoters of the movement is Sir Francis Vane, who saw  service as a volunteer in the Boer war  and in 1886 raised the first corps of  Working Boy Codets. It will be understood therefore that Sir Francis'  objection to militarism is, in this case  of Boy Scouts, only where thcrhe ban  been a departure from the orginal aim  if the movement as a training in civil  discipline..  "The idea is," says Sir Francis, "the  National Peace Scouts shall have no  reference whatever to our warlike preparations, and they will not act as a  ink in our scheme of defence. We  have no sympathy with that side of  the Boy Scouts movement which oper.  ates ln the direction of conscription.  We don't train up a boy to believe nations. We teach a boy to look upon  all nations as people working out their  own salvation, as brother nations, not  necessarily antagonistic. We try to  give a boy not only notional but an international ideal.  Our idea is to save this Boy Scout  movement from militarism. An endeavor fas made to attach the Boy  Scouts to the military manoeuvres recently and an endeavor has been made  in some quarters to make them a unit  of the Territorial army  The ational Peace Scouts council  represents twelve influential societies,  for the education of the young and  the members of it have drawn up a  scheme by which scouting is treated  scientifically as an educational medium.  The condition produced by the rise  in the price of crude rubber is described by a writer in Motor Age as that  of "the world standing aghast." For  half a century the price averaging un-  $1 per pound. Two years ago it was  down to 65 cents a pound., ow however, it has gone up to $3 and even  more per pound. In order to learn  whether the csuaes of this phenomenal  rise were artificial or natural, Mr. F.  S.

The ruling classes ii.

London is the financial centre of the world's rubber market, and  the craze now running its course there  is having a tremendous sentimental  influence toward lifting prices.

The most powerful  are mostly, in the gr i p of .circumstance,  and events often play unexpected tricks  with the best matured plans.  Under the system of government in  the United States there is really no  constitutional place for a person of  Mr. Roosevelt stature and power. The  situation in which he stands is unprecedented. Jefferson and Jackson named their successors in the presidency,  but upon their own retirement from  that office they were universally shelved. Mr. Roosevelt dictated the choice  of his successor, forcing that choice  upon his party by many methods, including some of the methods of the  astutely practical politician���������and no  astuter politician exists in any country  than the gentleman who has just re -  turned to his native land after creating  a furore in Europe on his way home  from the spectacular big game hunting  expedition in Africa, to find himself  recognized as a political leader of far  greater potency than the president.  Mr. Taft not yet half through his  term in the Presidential chair, must  be aware of the general conviction  throughout the United States, which is  reflected daily in the press of that  country, that the making or breaking  of his administration is in Roosevelts  hands. The situation is thus   one  ���������which will test tohe utmost the ex -  President's genius for politics. There  is something unrepublican in the ex -  isting situation in the United States,  in which the President is seen to be  holding his great office under the  masterful eye of a man in public life,  who made him President.  A government of laws instead of a  government of men, has been held up  ! by all the great men in the history of  I  m  stitutions. But the idea that   he  dreams dreams of Caesarism is not to  be taken seriously for a moment.

' It  is difficult  t������ express the eternal  aud  iiievU.-iliie   Uiitrwl  and detestation  which Inive ill ways existed between tlie  Mohtiintiiedau and tne Hindoo in India  it is often forgotten by critics that the  liffereuces   between   the   Mohammed  in's   religion   'and    the    Engl ish rami's  ire minute compared  with those  that  ���������liviUe [slam and Hindooism.    They of  ;be east take their religion much.more  seriously than  we of the west, aud in  tbe eyes of Islam tbe dog of a Christian is far better than tbe swine of a  Hindoo.  The Pathans of the northwestern  frontier���������keen, hardy and relentless  fighters, without education and without tbe wish for It���������may stand as a  type of the Mohammedans. They are  Kept from the throat of Hindustan  only by the presence of the British  government. If restraint were removed from the Mohammedan the  Hindoos would go down like grain before the sickle, nnd tbe Pathans would  turn India into one widespread hell.  Tbe first to Hy would be our friend  tbe babu. Yet he is precisely the man  who today does all lie can to make  British rule in India difficult Were  there any chance of. bis succeeding  agitation would promptly cease. Grim  indeed would be the silence of the  Bengali press about the moral delin-  ineucies of tbe white man. The Brahman agitator knows bis Englishman  and understands exactly bow far be  may l>e trnst������>d to go doggedly on with  his ungrateful work.   ,  I once saw a curious instance of tbe  ���������ontempt  in  which tbe educated Ben  gull balm is held by men of bis own  blood.  Toward the close of 1002 I was  traveling  up  to  the   Durbar  at  Delhi  and happened to be in the dining cai  on   the   three   foot   Rnjputaua-Malwn  railroad     A   well known rajput askel  if be might Join me at dinuer.   I wa?  delighted and found bim a most inter  esting companion    From  first to last  nothing could exceed his courtesy.   But  in pausing hi the midst of a sentence  ���������ind apologizing to me he leaned back  in his chair and stretched out his aru  iK'hiud  him.   barring the  narrow  pas  sageway.   A  well  to do Bengali  babu  was stopped by  the outstretched arm.  The   rajptit   then   called   the   Bengali  ugly things.   He told him that he was  one of a filthy and seditious lot of cow  ards.   mangy   curs  that   bit   the   hand  that fed them, and he finished b.v say  ing that, could he have his own way.  he would subject the whole lot-of. them  to a certain torture  whose very men  tiou made the wretched babu ti shade  .grayer    I  nev^r saw. such a  spectacle  ���������it shivering.terror.   With a final sneer,  the rajput  told  his victim  to go. and  then he turned back to the table with  ,1 pleasant smile.��������� Perceval l.andou ln  World's Work.  *<*^A^VWWW**V*������*^^^*^^W^**WW*^**Arf*V*^*  FOR PINE  Job  Printing  jj0  j?  - TRY THE ���������  Terminal City Press,  .LIMITED  2408  Westminster Road  PHONE 1405  An Interesting  Experiment.

So popular was bull baiting in olden  days io England that riots followed  tbe attempt to suppress it Id tbe large  towns. Bear baiting was more popular  still, if that could be. In various  places, Liverpool, especially. It made  part of tbe festivities at tbe election  of tbe mayor, being held before' bis  worship started for church. Ladies  commonly attended in great numbers.  There was a famous bear at Liverpool which showed such grand sport  in 1782 that certain fair admirers presented it with a garland, decked it  with ribbons and carried it to tbe theater, where a special entertainment  had been "commanded," which bruin  sat out in the front of tbeir box. But  of gossip about bull and bear baiting  there is no end. Enthusiastic lovers  of Shakespeare read with interest tho  petition of the royal bear warden, addressed to Queen Elizabeth in 1595.  complaining that his licensed performances bad been neglected of late bo-  cause every one went to the theater.  Mother Works Without Pay.  "Mother gets up first." said tbe new  office boy. "She lights the Are and gets  my breakfast, so I can get here early.  Then she gets father up. gets his  breakfast and sends him off. Then she  gives the others their breakfast and  gets 'em ready for school, and then sue  and the baby have their breakfast."  "What 13 your pay here?" asked tho  man.  "I get $3 a. week, and father gets $3  a day."  "How much does your mother get?"  "Mother!'' he said indignantly. "Why,  she don't have to work for anybody."  "Oh, I thought you just told me she  worked for the whole family every  morning."

The success of the entertainment recently held by the Strathcona: Sailors'  land Loggers' Institute was great.  ! The Association is becoming stronger year by year and the names added  to the personnel is a credit to any institution. Beyond question, this was  a vigorous Nand healthy annual meeting. Among those taking part in the  entertaining line were: some, of .the  best talent in the city. Mrs. .Arthur  Bewell in her usual good style rendered some selections. Miss Helen  Badgley gave some readings whicii  were of tbe highest order. Of special  mention was the offering of Mr. Max  Steindel, 'cellist. This young performer lacks only the bill boards and printers' ink to be in the list of the top  notchers, his work being of the highest  quality.  The Terminal Four (male quartette)  composed of C. Jones, C. Lanceiey.  James Goaid and E. A. Briscoe, made  la  lasting  impression   and   people   of  ! Vancouver will welcome their reappearance. Mr. Gomel, the leader, has  had extensive practice in the east in  leading choirs aid vocal associations  and we predict this quartette will make  a good name for themselves.  night of the next day, cold in death!  Game to the last!  The death of the King has brought  out again the striking traits of his  character, and his marvellous gifts as  a peacemaker outshine, perhaps, all  others. He had an immense personal  influence, not only in the Courts of the  world, but in the hearts of his own  courtiers. It is an open secret, that  many times as Prince of Wales, and as  King, he intervened when a gulf was  widening between husband and wife,  and averted tragedy in many a home  of wealth and apparent happiness.  As a statesman he was without a living  peer; under his sway a constitutional  monarchy attained its highest perfection; he was no mere figure of clay;  he was a virile force to be recoiled  with, but never once did he incline to  over-step the constitutional limitations  under which he lived. When he came  to the Throne he revived much of the  pageantry that had been minimized  during Queen Victoria's reign, because  he found it distinctly national in character, and because it provided employment for thousands. But with the revival of much that was picturesque  there was no revival of the laxity of  morals so characteristic of pre- Victorian daps. The Court of Ebward was  just as pure and high and noble as the  court of his mother, and it will be so  under King George's sway. Our new  ruler's natural leanings are against  lavish display, but it is expected that  the showy side of Court life will be  treated from much the same point of  view from which King Edward saw it.  Among the thousands of notoble tributes to the worth of the man, as well  as the Sovereign, that of Mr. Asquith  stands out. As a King's first minister  in what may be called a "constitutional crisis," he had unbounded opportunity for observing his master  "under fire," and his words are worth  recording here:  "I should be disposed to assign the  first place to what sounds a commonplace, but in its persistent and unfailing exercise, is one of the rarest  virtues���������a strong and abiding domination of the sense of public duty. King  Edward, be it remembered, was a man  of mauy and varied interests���������a sportsman in the bestsense, au ardent and  discriminating patron of the arts, and  as well equipped as any man of his  time for the give ard take of social  intercourse, wholly fiee from the prejudices and narrowing rules of caste at  home, and, in all companies, an enfranchised citizen cf the world.  "Next to this, Sir���������and I am still in  the domain of practice and administration���������1 should put his singular, perhaps unrivaled, tact in the manage  ment of men and judgment of intuitive  shrewdness as to the best outlet from  perplexity, and even from a baffling  situation. He had in i:s highest and  best development the genius of common sense."  This was the strain in which the  Premier of the United Kingdom continued to sum up the character of bif  dead monarch, and the affection of his  people demonstrated itself in many  ways during the-sad-- fortnight that  elapsed between death and burial.  Milicns stosd in lir.e until their tun,  came to gaze uprn their King lyinr  in state. And yet out of all this worldwide grief comes the reeling of thankfulness that Providence has provided  another King, one who. it is expected,  will brove himself a'wise and strong  ruler, and to whose attractive and  benign persorality it is not a dimculi  task to sweare allegiance.

Nine years on the throne!    A brief  ���������reign,  but long  enough    for a  great  Sovereign to stamp his personality indelibly en  the  pages of history, and  ,   tehpersonality  of King  Edward  the  Seventh was one that endeared him in  | a remarkable way, not only to his subjects, but to the peoples of the civili-  ' zed world.   Three score yers old when  Ihe came to the throne, the King knew  i ;hat his reign would not be a long one,  and he set about making it one that  should leave the world better for his  having been one of the kings  of the  earth.    Did he succeed?    "Well it is  jail over, but I think I have done my  'duty'.*'   This was one of the sentences  of the few short hours in which he lay  (upon his death-bed, and it has echoed  j around  the  world.

It  was in the early autumn of 1901 thai  Uie Duke and Duchess of York visited  Canada, and all who saw their Royal  Highnesses have kept in their memory  a picture of the Princess, a gracious,  womanly piesence. albeit of iegal dignity of bearing, the face rather serious  but lighted by a singularly winning  smile, her complexion of the pure  English type, bright blue eyes, and  soft, wavy brown hair of a shade almost golden; while those who had the  honor of spending even a short time  :n the presence of Her Royal Highness were won by the simple charm of  manner that had made "Princess May"  so much beloved at home.  Queen Mary is a great-granddaughter of George III., whose youngest sen.  the Duke of Cambridge, married Princess Augusta of Hesse. Their second  daughter. Princess Mary Adelaide,  married His Highness Francis, Prince  and Duke of Teck. and their eldest  child is now the Queen. She was born  in Kensington Palace on May 26th,  1SG7���������the year, by the way, of the  Canadian Federation���������and was baptized Victoria Mary Augusta Louise  Pauline Claudine, but to the nation,  adopting the name used in the Royal  family circle, she was always the Prin-  ' cess May.  j    The  Princess  May   and her  three  brothers were brought up*under tha  personal supervision of their parents.  The Duchess of Teck was a wise as  well as tender mother, and while she-  had her children wilh her as much as  she could, she was careful not. io spoil  them. Her Royal Highness kept watchful care over their education. A few  extracts from her journal during ������  week in the spring of 1877 give a  glimpse of Her Royal T-lighness's personal care of her children;  "Sunday���������At five o'clock I had. May  down and read the Psalms and the Lessons to her. After wards, 1. gave the  chicks their Scripture loading. Monday���������Francis and I joined the chicks  at their lunch Wales's  children came in the afternoon, and  I went up to the nursery to keep them  in order. .Wednesday���������Heard May her  dates and Franky his French reading  before lunch, and Finally went to the  schoolroom to assist at a grand wedding of the dolls. Saturday���������Assisted  at chicks' music lessons, and then  drove, with May and baby, to Coombe  where we got out and picked primroses."  The Duke and Duchess of Teck were  far from wealthy, a- d the increasing  demands on their income made, it necessary for them to give up their  apartments at Kensington Palace.  They left Englend with their family in  the autumn of 18S". and for the next  year and a half resided abroad, most  cf the time in Florence. The Princess  May continued her studies, adding to  them Italian, and. under her mother's  guidance, she mace an acquaintance  with the art treasures of Florence.  When the Princess May was  eighteen, her parents returned to England and in the spring of 1886 she went  to her first drawing room. For the  next four years her life w?.s much the  same as that of other English princesses, and in 1890 she went abroad with  her parents, visiting Oberammergau.  St. Moritz.    Munich,    Versailles    and  oilier places on the Continent.  In December, 1891, the betrq  the Princess May to the Duke  ence. heir presumptive to the  was  announced.    The death  Prince  from  influenza,  the  fd  month, evoked the sorrow andj  thy of the nation.  To the great pleasure of Qu  toria and the Royal families,  the whole nation, the betrothal  Princess   May   to   Prince   Gel  Wales was announced in 1893;  wedding was celebrated in Jul>  year.   Both Princess May and)  ther insisted upon the troussi  ing British manufacture.     Thi  were English silks, the tweej  brought  from   Scotland,   the  from Wales, the laces and popl|  Ireland.

The latter  still have work to do Their assistants  rescue the little tickets from the compartments into which they were dropped; and the settling clerks scan the  amount of them to see if they agree  with the totals on the exchange slips.  When first he entered the room the  settling clerk gave the proof clerk In  the manager's gallery the amount of  the checks lie brought with him. Now  he ascertains the toi.nl of the amount  deposited with hnn. Soon he is able  to tell whether his bank has a debt or  credit balance, and this information he  communicates to the proof clerk. Then  the clearing house knows exactly how  much cash will have to be moved from  bank to bank in adjusting balances.  Forty-five minutes is the limit allowed for making the exchanges and proving the balances, and lines may he imposed if the allotted time is exceeded  Put   it  is  rarely 'necessary   to  impose  fines, so rapid is the work of the messengers and so simple  the system of  exchange.     Most of  the  work  is done  before the messengers get to the clearing  house     The checks  for exchange  with  other banks are  inclosed in  separate  envelopes,   ami   these euvelopes  are arranged   in  consecutive order   in  the delivery clerk's bag. so all needless  delay in depositing them is eliminated.  To make the clearing finally complete  it  is of course necessary to exchange  the cash.    "Accordiu  ly." says .lames  (i.  Cannon   in   his   book  on   "Clearing  Houses."   "before  half  past, 1   o'clock  each debtor bank, in compliance with  the   requirements  of  the  constitution,  pays into the clearinghouse the amount  of its debit balance and obtains a receipt for.the same signed'by the assistant   manager.     After   half  past   1  o'clock  the creditor  banks  receive  at  the clearing house their respective balances and give their receipts  for the  ftiime in a book provided for that purpose,   but   in   no  case  can  a   creditor  bank receive Its balance nutil ali the  I debtor banks have paid in"  NOTICE.

We  challenge comparison with any  store in the city in staple lines  of goods. Of course we hear  i o> ���������/ Jand again of "Snaps."  There is no such thing as a snap  in first class articles. AU prices  rule alike. Call and convince  yourself.  I  I  I  O  r  Always a  fresh fruits  hand.  choice selection of  and  vegetables on  I  O  I  a  i  kit bag. canvas bag. Sometimes it baa  the name of the bank it came from  printed across the end. More of ten it  bears no distinguishing mark.  Further,   its   identity   is   frequently  bidden behind an exceedingly shabby  exterior.   That is perhaps a virtue.   At  all  events,  it is not considered good ,  form iu banking circles to be ostentar |  tious.   A strong bag even though it be  old and chafed is just as good a vehicle ,  for a fortune as a new one and is less- !  likeiy to produce burnings in the heart  of a thug.   So this Is the reason why |  the young men who sweep up the mar- I  ble stairs look as if they were carrying  bags filled with their own clothing instead of other persons' checks.    Self  conscious they are not despite the load*  they carry, and one might well imagine  they  were going upstairs to change  their garments for gymnasium suits.  But when the visitor reaches the floor  above and climbs to the little gallery  at one end he realizes that not basket  ball, but another game, is to be played.  Already the players are preparing to  take their positions. At the side walls  are benches on which delivery clerks  #re sitting, their bags at tbeir sides,  find opposite is a solid counter divided  Into about seventeen compartments, to  the front of -which are affixed, if occupied, the name plates of different  banks. Beyond the first Is .a second  counter and between the two a rack for  bats and overcoats. A broad aisle with  more benches and batracks separates  the two rows of counters from duplicates on the opposite side of the room.  Settling clerks, who take their places  on high stools behind the outer rows  of counters, face the walls. Those at  the inner counters face the center aisle.  At the elbows of tbe settling clerks  stand their assistants, who are w  quired to sign the exchange slips pre  vented with each package of checks.  As the clock nears 10 one glances  from tbe high dome, with its row of  electric lights, to the scene below. The  clerks at the compartments have made  themselves comfortable. Tbe messengers standing at ease before them  have slung tbeir bags and are ready.  A minute passes. A man appears at  the rostrum in the gallery and rings a  gong twice. Eyes below are Uplifted  SS he makes an announcement about  out of town banks that will hereafter  clear through different correspondents.  That is not of particular interest, but  he pauses briefly and then utters the  magic word, "Clearing!"  The messenger for bank No. 1 crosses  the room at one end of tbe counters  find takes tlie place of No. 07, who has  moved down a pace.

The place of all places to see the  Moorish people is at their'markets, for  every class and kind of them Is there,  and when you have seen one market  you have seen them all, for there is a,  racial similarity in the Moors the world  over.  The first thing about a Moorish market that attracts the attention of a  traveler is the farreaching odor or,  rather, the multiplicity of odors, for  there is a composite character <ihout.  the smell of a Moorish market that can-  uot be equaled unywhere outside of  China. Before you can even hear th<i  continual wrangle and jangle of the  market place you can smell It.  Once there the Interminable jumble  of things and folks is disconcerting,  aud the evidence of dirt everywhere  takes from an American all desire to  deal in eatables, for the Moors seem to  be wholly insensible to dirt of any  kind and every kind and have no objection to fruit and berries that have come  In unprotected over miles of dusty and  sandy roads.  These people are natural traders, second to none In their ability to obtain  the highest possible price or equally  ready willingness to let the article go  for a mere pittance rather than misa  making a sale.  They will begin the price of ti laraj  at 3 shillings and after a little haggling  will come down to 1 shilling, but if you  move on they will thrust the lamp into  your band and ask you to give them  anything for it thnt you will, and it Is  a sale, no difference bow small may be  your offer.  In nearly all countries the everywhere present and always tbe same  donkey is an inevitable adjunct of a  Moorish market The whole animal  kingdom would be searched through in  vain to find any creature more wholly  devoid of Impulse and sentiment than  this imposed upon little beast.  Like a fatalist philosopher, be is  wholly resigned to the order of things,  and nothing can cause him to stir from  the even tenor of his ways. Caressing  and even food do not seem to add any  tp his satisfaction, and beating and  abuse do not detract from bis tranquillity. His features are perfectly immobile.  As he stands ln the market place one  may pet him and give him bits of grass  or fruit and he will not raise bis head  or even open his eyes. Be Is the supreme, ineffable resignation in flesh  and blood. And no Moorish market is  complete without bim by the score.���������  World's Events Magazine.  land Act  Take netlce that I, W. .T.

"Say," remarked the postoffice clerk  who was off duty as he watched a  friend affix two stamps to the corner  of an envelope, "why don't you put  those stamps on horizontally instead  of vertically? Don't you know you  ���������would save a lot of work for us stampers if you put your stamps beside each  other instead of under each other? We j  always have to make two strokes when  canceling vertically pasted stamps by  hand, and they don't work well through  the stamping machines either."  "Is that so?" inquired his friend as  he took another envelope and proceeded to affix two stamps to it in a vertical position. "Then, by the great  horn spoon, why doesn't the government sell its stamps in horizontal  lines? Look at these. Here I bought  20 cents' worth of two cent stamp?,  and they come to me in vertical lines.  If i buy five twos. I get them attached  one to the bottom of the other. Do  yon think I'm going to the trouble of  tearing each stamp o������f just to please a  government clerk by pasting them side  by side?

There are many stories of Tennyson  In the Duke of Argyll's book. -"Passages Prom the Past." nnd one of the  most .characteristic relates to tlie tiim������  when the mniTi:;ge of his gru.e. iti.-n  tbe .Martinis of l.nrrit:. and Priin-ess  Louise was in the-air. One day Tennyson had a niunlifs- of .truest* at luix li-  eon. among whom was the Martinis >>f  Lome, ln the course of talk the marquis told Tennyson, then poet laureate,  that the queen liked his new 'volume.  "I am glatl to heat it." Tennyson  said in his sonorous, slow, musical  hnss voice "I have given a Rood ac-  i-tmnt of her In thai volutin* titii the  newspapers don't like xiny rhymes say:  they are bad. I live in terror." be continued, "of any of the queen's family  jnnrryjr.g and; of hearing fipiiLher that  she uor.es I will write something I  have no news of that kind yet. but I  live in terror of it."  This with a solemnly sly wink.  H Is Probably the Most Anc'snt of Ah  the Arts.  Tanning of leather Is probably the  oldest of all arts. Agriculture is tbe  only one thut would have a chance of  competition, but the probabilities are  that cold weather taught tbe Brsi Intel  ligent anthropoid ape to move south or  rover himself with skins. Without tanning the raw hides -would soon stiffen  and In damp weather would rot and  become unbearable because of their'  *dors. Probably about the (terlod of the  troglodytes, or cave men. tbe art bud  its luceptlon. and light here is to b-  stated one of tbe most curious features of the art-namely, that while  ������rery other art bits advanced, tht,  methods employed by meet tanners today are quite similar to those used in  tbe time of Herodotus, a writer who  has told us more about tbe world as  be found It thau has auy hhttorlnu who  succeeded him.  Herodotus says he found the Africans wearing skins for clothing, a remarkable statement about tbe people  9f a country In which tbe thermometer  rarely goes below 100 degrees F. Tbe  Phoenicians used tanned leather foi  the outside* of ships with which the}  fearlessly navigated every square mile  of tbe sea of all antiquity. Babylonian  leather workers were respected Iu tlie  time of David of Judea. Russia leatb  er has beM a proud place since the  nrst century of our era.

To me tbe most memorable thing i  saw  s( Taugier.  Morocco,  was a  fa  uious tannery  that dated back to tit*  Iteriod  preceding the  Arabic  Invasion  <>f   Europe.    For  some  of   tbe   burst  grades a man was treading the skiu  in a  vat  barefooted     Be  was soim-  wretcbed  outcast   picked   up  on   tht  streets and In need of a  few coppei '  coins to save him from starvation. The '  guide told me that an hour among tht  mineral  and   vegetable acids  in   thai j  vat would cuuse the skin to peel from t  bis feet aud legs us ir tbe flesh liad i  Iteeu lioiled.  As hospitals are unknown  in Tangier, this seemed a serious prt������s j  fleet for the ptior wretch   This Incident j  recalled the unfortunate mules at liua \  aajuuta and in other places of Mexicc 1  that are put into the cyauide tanks to {  separate the sliver by tramping   ThV  poor brutes soon lose their hoofs ami  ha ve to be shot.  Morocctt   leather   Is   made   of-.goal  skins, dyed is|hui tbeir outer surfaces  Not until the middle of the eighteenth  century   was   tlie   art   in trounced   into  France,   where the  highest  grades oi  Morocco   leather   are   made   in   these  days.

SASKATCHEWAN  CROPS.  (North-west Farmer.)  The Saskatchewan Department of  Agriculture, through its statistical and  crop reporting service, has completed  its estimate of the acreage sown to  wheat and oats in the province this  year. The estimated increase in acreage sown to wheat is 557,000 acres or  13.6 per cent. This compares with an  increase last year of 381,000 acres or  10.3 per cent.  The estimated acreage sown to oats  shows a decrease of 137,000 acres or 6  per cent. In 1909 there was an increase of average sown to oats of 467.-  000 acres or 26.3 per cent. There is a  widespread tendency this year to neglect oats in favor of flax, wheat, and  barley. This movement is almost entirely a reflection of the prices that  have been obtainable for the various  grains during the past, six or eight  months. Oats have been comparative-  !t low in price while the other grains  named have commanded satisfactory  prices. Other causes tending to a decrease of oats acreage are the early  spring and the presence in mauy dis  tricts of lrge surplus supplies of oats  of the crop ol 1909.  Estimates of the acreage under barley and flax respectively- are in course  of preparation and will be prblished  when the seeding of these grains is  completed. It is expected that barley  will show a slight, and flax a very material increase in acreage.  Ninety-three per cent, of the wheat  crop acreage, of 4,317,000 acres, was  sown prior to May 1st this year. In  1909 only 62 per cent, was sown prior  to May 10th.  Of the acreage sown to oats 45.5 per  cent., or956,000 acres, was sown prior  to May 1st, 1910. In 1909 only 11 per  cent, of the oats acreage was sown by  May 10th.  One acre In every 20 of the area  sown to wheat was sown in March.  The acreage estimated to have been  sown in Mrch is 257,000 or 5.5 per cent,  of the whole.  The dates upon which seeding of  wheat and oats was general this year  were April 12 nd April 26th respectively. These compare with May 3rd and  May llth respectively, last year, and  April 20th, the average date by which  wheat seeding has been general during  the past 12 seasons.  The above figures are compiled from  the returns of a staff of 1600 farmer  crop correspondents.  9.C. BAPTIST.  The B. C. Baptist Convention will be  held in Vancouver in Mt. Pleasant  Church from July 7th to JOth.  The Mt. Pleasant troop of Boy Scouts  extend their thanks to the kind friends  of their tag day and especially to Mrs.  Luno who furnished their lunches free.  LOCAL MAN GETS CONTRACT.  Mr. R. Raine has been engaged to  clear the site for the Isolation hospital in the Admiralty reserve and expects to have the work done in about  eighty days. The estimated cost of  clearing the tract of slightly less than  five acres is $2,400. The city will make  arrangements to use a portion of Rogers street as a mooring place for the  civic launch when it is procured.  BOY'S  BRIGADE.  In a recent number of a Winnipeg  paper is given the description of a  review of the boy Cadets���������over 2000  having taken part in the demonstration. The event took the form of a  competition and was a most success-  endeavor. While Vancouver may not  be as strong in number as Winnipeg,  yet would it not be a good plan to form  a corp not necessary of school attendants, but young men under 21 who  would be pleased to take up the work  and have this method of improving  themselves.
