 ARE YOU ON OUR LIST?  NO! WHY?  v---  1������> :~r&  SUBSCRIPTION $1.00 A YEAR  IN ADVANCE  Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province  / f  VOLUME II  VANCOUVER, British Columbia,   JUNE 24,   1910.  No. 7  PAL  CREEK   BY-LAW  What Do The City Get?    What Do The Railway Get ?  BE CAREFUL HOW YOU VOTE  , On Tuesday next/June 28th, 1910, the Citizens of Vancouver  [will cast their ballots to decide the most momentous question which  fit has been their lot to vote upon in the history of the City. Upon  [the decision of that ballot will depend largely what is to be the final  ['destiny and disposition of the most valuable asset the City has or  lever will have in her possession. Also upon that, ballot will depend  [what, is to be the future relation of Vancouver to ail railway developments, for involved in this question to be voted upon are matters  [of such vital importance that they will forever affect the future of  |our City.  The question is of such supreme importance,' and of such far-  reaching effect that we feel that we. cannot allow this, our last,  Opportunity to pass without carefully analyzing the agreement which  %s been consummated between the Great Northern Railway Company and the City of Vancouver. It is the duty of every voter in  Vancouver to scrutinize carefully the agreement so that when he  ptes it will be intelligently and with a full knowledge of the  lacts before him. It is also well to remember that your vote will  Lffect the welfare of generations yet to be.  I First, briefly, what is the situation ? The City own tb^e bed of  False Creek by Virtue of grants from both the Dominion and Provincial Governments, subject, however, to all riparian rights and  Ind rights of navigation. /.  L All the foreshore (except a few lots immediately adjoining  Jjther end of Westminster avenue bridge) is now owned by the  treat Northern Railway. . '.  f The City purpose purchasing ������he balance of the lots above referred to, hence that part of the question may reasonably be eliminated. '���������. ���������', .. -.  , Now the City cannot develop the bed of False Creek without  Irst extinguishing the riparian rights of the owners of the foreshore,  [iz., the Railway Company. The Railway Company cannot utilize  lie foot of the bed of the Creek without the consent of the City, so  Vat thus far the City and the Company are upon a fairly equal  Lus, excepting for one fact which has been largely over-looked, viz.,  fiat in the agreement made on the 10th day- of December, 1907 be-  Iveen the City and the V. W. & Y, R^R,.^:^  Ilits riparian rtghtsToh the south and east slitore in exchangfe for  Irtain privileges but failed to secure or bargain for a title to its  lclaimed lands as at that time it was not thought possible that it  luld be obtained.                                                  -.         .      ' ���������  In this latter regard the City have a distinct advantage, tor  ���������iilethe riparian rights of the Company are for-ever annulled, the  Impauv's title is worthless.    This fact is greatly agitating the  Vlill" interests and thev are endeavoring, under the guise of a new  Ireemeut for the north'side, to recify the error made m connection  lh the south and cast shores, and as far as possible this tact re-  Vding their title is kept-very"quiet. '.'.       7.   .  | Under the present conditions of the City's title it is impossible to  Late one foot of the bed of the Creek, but we may lease for a  l-iod up to forty years, but no more. .-,���������.,        *���������'.������������������,  1 Now under this new agreement what do the Railway get and  Fat do the City get in exchange for it? .    '    ' ���������     . \  i In the first place the Railway get a clear "title to approximately  D acres of tlie most valuable land in the City of Vancouver.   Sixty-  p acres of this is composed of the portion of the North shore now  rticularlv being sought by the Company, the balance is that por-  |u along the south and east shores already referred to      Secondly,  I* Company secure complete control of the access to False Creek  ^nhg 110* practical^ the whole foreshore andby tins agreement  [tine almost two thirds of the bed of the Creek.  I Thirdly  the Companv have secured already and are now get-  Isr more room to receive the material excavated from their big cut  Tough the east end of thhe City.   It is hard to estimate the value  f Fourthly the Company receive some.very valuable portions of  lets through the closing of Grove Crescent, portions of Hawkes  Tnue, Williams street, Gore avenue and numerous lanes.  The Citv will receive for this, first the extinguishment of all  Irian rights or rights of navigation owned by the Company.  Secondly, we get the privalege to put in certain over-head apaches to'our own property at our own expense, except in two  h where the Company pay one-holf. ?  [Thirdly we get conveyed a few small strips of lands to connect  iview street with Williams street, etc., which partially offset the  lets conveyed to the Company.   Beyond this we get nothing.  I We will now examine a few clauses m the agreement and see  tit they really mean.   Clause 2 of the Agreement contains the  lowing-���������"The Company will    commence    reclamation    within  Ity days after it has received title and secured the approval of  (Board of Railway Commissioners and of any other parties, au-  lities or officials."   This may take six months and it may take  vears    One argument in favor of accepting the agreement is  Uit will mean immediate development.   Does it mean that, or  we not be indefinitely delayed?   Again, "and will proceed with  L reclamation until sufficient filling shall ^ve been done to enabk  i establish freight and passenger terminals ADM^U ALb IU lnr,  iSSSs TO BE TRANSACTED BY THE COMPANY in Van-  sor "   Who is to be the authority to decide what is    adequate t  tat reclamation or filling in is necessary to erect depot at corner  trior and Park Lane?   Then further in the same clause, _ the  t freight and passenger terminals are to be completed witnm a  W of five vears after the work is commenced."   Here again the  Bine is altogether too ambiguous.   The Company have it in their  Vpo^r to say when they commence and they must complete  Jin five vears from that indefinite period.   Mr. Howard stated the  Ipanv was in a desperate hurry to get this done, but it tocnYan  111 struggle to get the Company to cut the time limit from    nine  fehVendof same clause are these words. "The total expendi-  for lands, reclamation and construction of terminals will be  lAi thin 2 5000 000.''   According to Mr. Howard s own repeated  Kent the Companv had already spent $2,100,000 m purchasing  Fthus there is the grand sum of 400,000 to reclaim 61 acres  ���������build Union Depots and freight terminals,  foiis clause is the most important clause in the agreement and  a brought-down to a final analysis contains practically nothing.  t-ordin^ it is ambiguous, in its conditions it is absurd, simply  placing the interpretation in the hands of the Company, in its figures  regarding amount to be spent it is altogether misleading.  Clause 6 provides, "that the passenger station so to be erected  shall be designed so as to accommodate the G. N. R., the C. N. R.,  N. P. R., G. T. P., and any other roads upon such terms as the  Railway Commission may deem reasonable, necessary and just,  based upon the expenditure made in connection with the acquisition  of lands fronting on False Creek, together with cost of reclamation  and building and cost of maintenance and upkeep of terminals."  This means that for a railway to have access to this Union Passenger  Depot it must pay a tax or interest portion computed upon the total  cost of all the lands on all three sides of False Creek, owned by the  G. N. R., and upon the total cost of reclamation of the whole 130  acres. This is manifestly unfair arid trould lead to untold trouble  in the future. The G. N. R. will have freight terminals, sorting  yards and storing yards and they are asking all railways coming  into their Passenger depot to pay a tax on their whole plant, which  at once constitute a serious handicap to the other companies, who  would have to maintain yards elsewhere. No road would accept  such terms. Mr. Howard stated in reply to objections on this point  that "the Railway Commission had full control." This is in part  true, hut in face of an agreement of this kind it is not likely that  tlie Commission would order anything contrary, in any case it would  entail a great deal of trouble and coiotroversy, which is exactly  what we, as a city, wish to avoid. 77  In Clause 8, "The Company agree io pay the City the amount  of any damage done to septic tanksTat drove Crescent and Parker  street." No figures are here stated^ It is left entirely for future  negotiating. Clause 10, provides for;the City "extending Cari  avenue from Grove Crescent by an overhead crossing over its  tracks to the outer boundary of the Company's property and to  constructing approaches thereto, and Company to supply necessary  right of way and will pay one-half of the cost of construction."  Nothing is recited as to where the approach is to commence, or as  to the nature of the structure, etc., thfeiagain is left to future arrangement. .7:- -7.v ^--;���������,��������� ^k-kk'ik'-i^ki' ->.".��������� "' ''''-Ii*-'"  kk Clause 10; "The Cqmpany'%bnserits-;tb the extension of Fifth  avemie westerly to Boundary avenue." This is only a short distance  whereas itwas distinctly understood that Fifth avenue was to have  been opened through from Scott street to Glen Drive. It is imperative that this should be done, thus giving a through street east and  west comparatively close to the centre of activity on False Creek.  Clause 11, "The City consents to all orders being made by the  Railway Commissioners for the carrying out of this agreement,, in  eluding the location of tracks and crossings over streets and  grades." TWhv shouid that last clause be acceded to before auy  definite plan isVubmitted or grades given ? The City are blindly consenting to conditions of which they know positively nothing. And  further that clause can be made to-cover tracks outside the range  of this agreement altogether and is exceedingly dangerous.  Clause 12, latter part reads: "The Company admits that circumstances-exist which warrant the Railway Commission in making  an or der.under section 176 of Railway Act, regarding the use of its  railways by other Companies, from a point at or near Still Creek,  Hastings, to. the Union Passenger Depot." This Clause also, is so  framed that it is more of au objection than anything else towards  obtaining an order from the Commission, for they would naturally  say "why did vou not make some definite arrangement m your  agreement." There should have been a definite final arrangement  ���������^th the Company to allow other roads to use their lines through  the Citv, and the Company should have been forced to agree������to  extend'the cut if necessary to allow of further traffic. All the  Company have to do under Clause 176 is to state that the traffic is  so congested that it is impossible for them to accommodate any  more lines and it is certain that neither the Commissioners nor any  other peower can make them disrupt their own traffic to suit any  other road, nor would they order them to enlarge the cut, thus the  Great Northern become the absolute dictators in this regard and it  may be necessary for other roads to come in over their own lines  and perhaps have another unsightly cut through our city. When  this point was discussed, Mr. Howard agreed to allow other roads  over their lines but refused to put it down in the agreement, using  the same argument as formerly, that is, that the "Commission would  order it." ��������� .  Clause 14 is au innocent looking little clause but is very significant. "Any provisions of the agreement dated the 10 th day of  December, 1907, between the City and the V. W. & Y., which are inconsistent with this agreement are hereby mutually rescinded and  the provisions of this agreement are substituted therefor." This  clause it was artfully explained was necessary to overcome the  slight change to the old plan on the south shore. But in reality it is in  this Agreement in order to remove all possible objection to the conveying of the lands on the south and east shore as well as those on  the north shore. For it must be remembered that we are voting to  give approximately 130 acres, not merely 61 acres.  Clause 15 relates to white labor.  Clause 16 provides that all employees as far as possible shall  be British Columbians.  Clause 17 is the fair wage clause.  Clause IS forbids use of Asiatic labor.  All these clauses were inserted at the instigation of one or. two  aldermen. .  Clause 30. ''The Railway Company will protect and save harmless the City from any liability for damages, compensation or costs  arising from or occasioned by any works carried on or use made  "with -resp-et to the lands referred to in this Agreement, or by'the  closing of streets or lanes, and if any claim is made or action  brought ���������asrainst the City, and the City will notify the Company.  the Company will be at liberty in the name of the City, but at it?  own expense and cost to defend such claim or action."  Note particularly the wording���������"The Company will be at liberty to defend such claim.'' .  * The arrangement made was that the Company would definitely  assume full responsibility for all claims or damages brought  against the City and would take full charge of the legal disposition  of all such suits or claims, not only for "lands referred to in this  Agreement," but also for other lands the owners of which now  claim damages and which the Company have not seen fit to rec  ognize as having riparian rights. This clause is too wide open and  is not in accordance with the original arrangement between Mr.  Howard and the City Council.  Clause 22 provides that if the City does not obtain title with-  in one year to these lands for the Company, then the whole agree-  ment is null and void. There is, however, no penalty clause for the  Railway. Even though we were able to make a case against them  by that ambiguous time clause, No. 2, we would gain nothing as  there is no penalty for breaking the agreement. Again, in this instance, Mr. Howard stated that "the Company would not allow  such an heavy investment to remain idle.'* Would it be idle? As  already stated, the Company must dump their excavations somewhere, and besides it is to their decided advantage to get the title  to the south and east shore even although they sank another two  millions in non-revenue producing land for a few years.  Now we believe that it is unwise to confirm this By-law, for  the following reasons: 1. Sixty-one acres is too much land to grant  in addition to the 69 acres that the Company have already obtained. 2. The Company do not need the amount they ask for, and  no competent engineer has advised the City that they do; therefore there is no need to grant it. 3. The Agreement is altogether  too ambiguous and indefinite, leaving too much to future arrangement. 4. Too much is |eft upon which the Company may place ita  own interpretation. 5. The. Railway Company would secure absolute control of the head of False Creek. 6. Insufficient provision  lias been made for the opening of streets, especially in regard to  Fifth avenue. 7. The provisions for overhead .crossings are inade- '  quate and details too vague. 8. Not sufficient provision has been ���������  made for access of other railways, or to get to the City's property  in the center. 9. No penalty clause is provided and no definite time  limit is set. t  t '  There are two types or classes of citizens who will vote on this  By-law.   One class will look at, the question trom the standpoints  getting some immediate action- and benefit, hoping that large suma  of money will be spent and thus increase the, prosper^ of t&e City,. ?  /rh*y will think only-of-theintnifcdJ&te fuTuti������MEu1Hssc������h<t cKsi *"  will decide the question on its relation to the future destiny of the  City.   We have nothing to say, at this time, regarding these two  view-points.   Only to point out to the former that according to the   .  agreement there is absolutely nothing to guarantee immediate de-   ���������  velopment, nor to ensure the expenditure of large sums of money?  on the contrary everything points to a siow develpoment.    Mr.  Howard stated definitely���������"It was not the intention of tbe Com-  '  pany to fill in the whole 61 acres."   And when pressed, refused . ���������-  positively to state when he thought it would be done. .  To the other parties Ave would ask: "What has been the effect of the monopoly of the Canadian Pacific Railway to our Burrard Inlet water-front and the closing ; of Abbot street, Cambie  street, Carrall street and numerous other streets? What is likely  to follow if the G. N. R. is allowed to'monopolize the whole of the  foreshore of False Creek? Are you convinced that the agreement  properly safeguards the "City's interests? Do you think that the  execution of this agreement with the G. N. R., giving them control  of the whole situation and 130 acres of land, is going lo assist in  the accommodation of other railways seeking to come hure fur terminals? If you can give a favorable answer to these questions,  then vote for the By-law; if you cannot, then let no stone remain  unturned to ensure its defeat.  To all voters we would urge that you turn out and vote in-.-  4elligentry---an<l:-carcfully-.---R<!member-this3y-law--not--only---involves---���������  land valued at millions, but it also has a vital bearing upon the'future relation of the City regarding transportation-facilities.    We  have had tewenty-five years experience with one railway monopoly  and must guard against a second.  ���������   ���������   ���������  A CONSTRUCTIVE POUCY.  The foregoing article is largely a criticism of the agreement  made between the city and the G. N.'Ry. Co. It is a comparatively  easy matter to criticise any action, it is often much more difficult to  suggest a substitute scheme.  Some one will have, no doubt, asked, "What do you suggest in  place of the scheme contained in the by-law?"  There are two schemes which will at once suggest themselves  to the average mind. First, let the city exercise its powers under  the False Creek Fore-shore Act and expropriate the riparian rights  of all owners, including the railway. Some doubt exists regarding  the. power the city would have to expropriate the railway lands, but  we do not think the Railway Commission would block the city in  thi.s regard, on the grounds that the railway already has sufficient  lands on the south and east shores for their terminal facilities.  Another objection is the cost. We submit, however, that if a  definite plan for the development of that portion of False Creek  lying east of Westminster Avenue were prepared, that it would be  quite possible to secure ample financial backing to carry out the  scheme. Tlie necessity in itself would be quite sufficient, and Vancouver City would be enabled to secure to itself such a revenue as  would well repay it for the trouble.  The second suggestion is to deal -with the G. N. Ry. or an}'  other corporation or company on a basis of a 20 or 40-year lease.  We believe that the G. N. Ry. Company would have dealt with the  city on this basis, had not the aldermen allowed Mr. Howard to  Brow-beat them into submission.  A loase could be'framed which would be quite just and fair to  the railway and at the same time preserve to the city this valuable  asset.  The company value their holdings at $2,000,000. of which, at a  generous estimate, one-half is "riparian rights value." and according to Mr. Howard the 61 acres are worth about'$30,000 per acre,  or^approximately $2,000,000: this at a rental of 4% for 40 years  amounts to $3,200,000. We could thus allow the railway company  to have a lease of this property, pay them the price of their riparian  right, pay them $1,000,000. the estimated cost of filling in, nnd still-  have an asset of $1,200,000 surplus and tho property intact at the  end of 40 years.  These figures are quoted from Mr. Howard and hence must be  accurate. But be this as it may, the fact remains there is a wide  possibility for the consummation of an agreement which will be  more equitable than that at present before the electorate.

C, May 15th, 1910.  %s*  Gal: G:   2.        Bear Ye one another's  burdens and so fulfil  the law of Christ.  The law of Christ is the life of love,  and our text teaches that we best manifest that life by bearing one another's  burdens.      There seems to be a great  deal of confusion in   the   world   just  now as to what   Christianity   stands  for, and while this confusion lasts the  best and greatest results cannot be a -  chieved. Among thinking nnd suffering  people everywhere there is hunger for  a new definition and for a more pract-1  ical human expression of our    divine  religion.        We are carrying a great!  deal too much  baggage wit us���������luggage of form devoid of spirit���������luggage j  of doctrine without soul saving power.  It is on this account that I am seeking  to make all   my   ministry   a   sincere  attempt to get at and set before    the!  people a just and . clear   opinion-    of  essential Christianity; of Christianity :  as Christ left it, when He died, and sol  far as I can make out as he meant it j  OWH.  This essential Christianity, and we  feel something of this in ourselves if  we are truly christians.  Do not. think that I stand in opposition to freedom of thought but let  us not be foolish because we are free.  Liberty is a great word. Liberty is a  dangerous thing if it be not put to  high uses. Do not waste it upon  trifles. Why should you produce the  confusion worse confounded in the  church by proclaiming from the house  tops that Moses did not write the Pentateuch, when you do not know?  What difference does it make whether Geneses is a compilation from P. J.  E. or not? What difference does it  make h. our convictions concerniig  Christ whether the prophets spoke first  and the law givers crystallized then-  moral vision into minute regulations;  or whether the law givers ^yrote first.1  and the prophets vitalized and enforced the laws with their mighty .spiritual fervor and patriotic appeal. Reconstruct every epoch of Biblical history,-if you can, but. say   nothing a-  to be understood to the very end   of ���������  time.    I do this because I firmly he-; bout them until you have caught    the  lieve that no man who respects him  self and desires the welfare of, his  neighbor can see the Christianity of  Christ without, -believing it. He can -  not improve jipon the text "Bear Ye  one another's burdens, and so fulfil  the law of Christ," or suggest anything  better than the golden rule "As ye  would that men should do to you do  ye even so to them."     About these   I  I  breath of their spiritual life and can  breathe it into bur times and use the!  leaves of your tree of knowledge for j  the healing of the nation. ' ;  I am prepared to let the pendulum ;  of thought swing far into the unknown, and I shall cling to it as it  swings above me,' but I would rather  die this moment "than let it swing my  feet off the Rock of Ages.     I believe  believe, there has beenno skepticism. [ ^ pendulum of thought is swingin  common place conditions mixing with  e '.-���������������������������aiviion people. He might have  enriched himself with a word, but he  chose to live where he would have th-a  largest development of physical and  :n-M-al iruis.-te. We do not'pity a man':  who has to labor; far from it. Labor  is the salt of life. It is the girdle of  manliness. It saves the soul from  polluting thoughts and the body from  effeminate hmgour. But we pity the.  man who must toil on month after,  month and year after year doing the  same things over and over again in a  ceaseler.s. tread mill without even ths  prospect of rising to that position in  the world in which through travel,  through literature and society he may  give expression to those nobler {n -  stincts and desires which throb in the  heart of every true man. Upon the  path, of such persons the Golderir"Riilc  should shine with beams of blessing,  but. the tragedy of our civilization is j  the fact that the Golden Rule seems  but a distant twinkling of a star shining out once in a while from behind  dark thunder clouds which are electric with misery   which    smites    and.  blights the lives of our people. [  -. - . *  ��������� An actress travelling about Canada I  in an upholstered pullman car, recei- j  ving large sums of   money   for   her  splendid   nightly   performances,   was.  sitting'in .-one .of .our Union Stations  eating a piece of cake one day, and  threw some, of the crumbs out upon  the pavement..      Two   little   urchins,  there struggled to    get    them,    they  fought to get them, they fought on un  sure of truth in this, but one 'cannot  help but smile at this puerile conception of religion. The Cross stands in  the highways of commerce. It lies  upon the cash book and the ledger,  and' if men be. christians they must  find it and take it up in these places.  Ii the church cannot stem the tide of  materialism which is rising higher and  nishing faster upon us every day in  ilaxnling, almost dazing���������yes morally  dazing opportunities of "getting rich  pluck," then the church shall die and  tiio nations, perish. To be carnally  minded is death. Ye cannot serve  God and Mammon, and the nations  that will not serve God shall perish.  A nation's life consists not in the a-  bundance of -things that it possesseth.  Listen! listen! ���������Oh! Canada listen! Voices are crying from the dust  of Tyre, from Karuak, and the stones  of Babylon.  We raised our pillars upon self desire and perished from the large gaze  of the sun.  A bittern cries were once Queen Dido  laughed,  A thistle nods were once  the forum  paused.  A lizard lifts and listens on a shaft,  Were once the Colliseum roared.  Why did Rome and Carthage and  Tyre g down to dusty death?  Because to be carnally minded  is death. To put into the forefront  the things of the material life is to  invite national paralysis. To be  spiritually minded, that is, to put the ]  To deny these is to eject all nobility  from the heart, and make onesself but  the husk of a man. j  Let us look at the burdens which the  christian has to bear. By a law of  spiritual unity which: makes the be -  liever one with his Lord���������the burdens  the christian has to bear are exactly j  the same that Christ bore when He was  with us. The church is the body of  Christ, and therefore it must carry the  burdens that rested so heavily upon  His heart  There is the burden of sin. There  are a great many efforts.being made  ia these days to minimize sin: to take  back to the orthodox position. Men  are deeply feeling that if you rationalize the. Bible and denyit to be.su-  pernatiiral, you must rationalize christian life and deny the power .-of- regeneration, and when that is done, the  bottom is fallen out of everything.  A converted woman of the street  one day ran into the house and up the  stairs into the study of a noted di -  vine, who previously had been a man  of evangelistic fervor and success, but  who through accepting the negations of a certain type of higher criticism bad lost his evangelistic useful -  ness, she called to bim saying, "Come  out of it the sting of guilt: to make [ and hel   br|ng mofher   in." He  it impersonal���������to lay the blame- on  heredity and environment���������to use large  words about it which make no moral  point and by verbal jugglery to  relieve the consciences of men from  the deep sense of personal responsibility,  sprang up from his chair and ran down  tbe stairs expecting to find an old  woman fallen upon the sidewalk but  the girl ran ahead of him and on and  on until she led him up some flights  of stairs Into a garret where her poor  mother lay breathing her last;   'then  There is no use however in trying ] turning to him, she said���������"You helped  to do that: you cannot reason against me tn now nelp mother in." He fum-  experience, and the experience of even} bled about for the old truths he used  the little children in my presence is  that sin is accompanied by the sting of  guilt.  Christ never nursed such a delusion.  He stood in the presence of the vast [  multitudes before Him and looking up  ���������* them He individualized their sins  aud sorrows with such, keenness   and  force that they arose as a thick cloud  before Him and rolled in upon   His  soul, as He hung upon the cross, solidifying with such weight as to   break  His heart.       If we are christians we!  must feel the same way He did about  sin and the sinner.      We cannot stand,  upon a moral   eminence   and   throw f  down a life line   to   those   who   are  struggling in the dark waters of life  , and hope to save them in that way.  We must leap in where they are and  as best we can grapple with them and  struggle with them until their feet are  planted upon the Rock of Ages.    Ah!  how would Christ do?      That is best  expressed in the words of the familar  hymn���������  There were ninety and nine that safely  lay  In the shelter of the fold;  But one was out on the hills away,  Far off from the gates of gold.  til they bled...to get these crumbs of j things that pertain to character first f  and only ��������� that is life and peace.  In a night of drunken revelry Bel-  shazzar, the kfng of the Chaldeans,  did when he was tipsy, what we do  when we are perfectly sober, praised  the gods of gold, silver, iron, wood and  stone/ He made a great political  oration extolling the vast material resources of the Empire, but the God in  whose hand was the breith. was his  nation's life, he did not. glorify, and in j  the same hour there came forth fingers  of a man'8 hand and wrote upon the  wall "Thou art weighed in the balance  and art found ���������wa.nt.lnir" nnd In that  night was Belsliazznr. King of Chald-  cake. Whatever ism we may hold,  whether individualism or socialism, wa  cannot believe that the Father in heaven, who has filled this earth with so  much provision for human need meant  that such disparity of wordly circumstances should exist between his children on earth. T he burdens of such  person we must learn to bear.  A. director of the Canadian Cotton  Combine went down from, Montreal to  Halifax and seeing little children  working in the cotton mill from half  past six in the morning until, si t at  night, having but an hour intermission .for lunch, and receiving only 25  cts. a day, asked the manager of the eans slain, and his dynasty brought to  tt use with saving power, but they  seemed all to have forsaken him, and  in the darkness of that moment he  felt himself .bereft indeed.  I can conceive of no greater traged>  in the life of a minister of the Gospel  than to stand by a prostrate soul seeking for mercy and not be able_ to lake  her by������the hand and lift her up. ...  Young men can you do that   now?  Ah!    Never sell that power   at   any  price.   When I was a young man during the second, year of my probation  two students from   Victoria   College  and I disputed about Wesley on chris-.  tian perfection.      I held that his ar -  gument was wooden and unconvincing, i  They stood by John Wesley's inter - j  pretation of christian life.   That night',  I took up Tom Paine's "Age of Rea -!  son" and read it until two o'clock irj  the morning, then I put my light out. j  find went to sleep.      I dreamed that I  was driving a heavy team of horses  heavily laden up a steep hill on the  left side of which there was a preci -  pice.     Built up on piles from the deep i  below was a house containing a har -1  ness shop.   As I drove the team up the ;  hill they went off to the left carrying j  me over the precipice.    I pulled upon;  Away on the mountains wild and bare/my rignt ]ine.     i went Into a dozen  Away from the tender Shepherd's care.  Lord, hast thou not here thy ninety  and nine  Are they not enough for thee.  But the Shepherd made answer, this  of mine  Has wandered away from me.  And, although the way be rough and  steep  I go to the desert to find my sheep.  But none of the ransomed ever knew  How deep were the waters crossed,  Nor how dark was the night  That the Lord passed through  E'er he found his sheep that was lost.  Out in the desert he heard his cry  Sick and helpless and ready to die.  But all through the mountains thunder  riven  .And up from the rocky steep.  There arose a cry to the gate of heaven  Rejoice, 1 have found my sheep.  And the angels    echoed   around   the  throne  pieces and as I looked at It I beheld  it was but rotten elastic. I stopped the  team with my voice. Just then John  Wesley walked down the hill and turned into the harness shop. I called to  the harness maker to sell me a right  line." John Wesley kept me waiting  for sometime, then he came out and  put the right line upon my harness  and I got up the hill all right.  Do not think that I have had no battle with doubt. I have always been  inclined to it. I have doubted myself  out of existence and as my consciousness seemed to be sweeping into nothingness I have had to spring to sre-e  my sanity. I have learned the  wqy of faith in the school of bltt ;r  pain.  Secondly. If we   are   followers    of j  Christ and of John Wesley we must;  bear the burdens and the sufferings of j  ' the people.  Christ chose to live    iii!  raill if ae could not reduce their wages  down to 20 cts. a day. Thank God!  the manager was man enough to say  that his sense of humanity would not  permit him to think of such a thing.  Very unfortunately we have men in  the Christian church to-day who are  p raying God to come down and  finite the liquor trade because it is destroying our people, who at the same  time are sucking their revenues from  thin blood in the veins of these helpless children.  It is your work   and   mine   young  brethren, out of sympathy for those  unfortunates to develop   a   kind   of;  christian who does not care for money j  for its own sake, and who   will   not;  lqye the game of money making when  his paeans of victory will be made dis- j  cordant by the cries and cries of suf-!  fering humanity who lie with wounds  undressed at his lordly gate.s I  I  Two    men   were   disputing   about =  ^oc'-fePer's money.     One declared it  was tainted money and the other said  "You are right,  'taint  mine  and    it  'taint yours". The man was right but j  he should have gone further and said ���������  it is not. Rockfeller's, it belongs    to  God.    The earth is the Lord's and the.  fulness thereof. |  i  We need a revival of the old fashioned idea of stew.vdsbip in w^-div!  things.     John Ruskin says that any  ������ -pinn beyond tho^e which we can  use for our personal development are i  only useless lumber. If your minister  should come in to the pulpit and con-  vey to you the impression that he was!  after your money rather than after your i  souls, you would soon run him out. If ;  the doctor came to your home and you  felt he was looking for your sheckles  rather than promoting   your   health,  you would dismiss him.    No merchant  has a right to open his door on Monday morning primarily for  +i->*������  ^������������������  pose of making money.    All our merchants know  that the  idea of commerce is public service.    They advertise sales  and  make you think that  they are prepared to shed    the    last  drop of their commercial blood to serve  their fellow men.     This is  the ideal  towards    which    all    business      men  -hor.'.d asnire. seeking first the Kingdom  of God  and His    righteousness.  p.r-d trusting the divine Being to add  all necessary things to them.  My dear brethren, we must develop  the man of Christ who can really take  up and besr 'he Cross. We used to  think the cross consisted in speaking in  Class-meeting and praying in prayer  meeting, and  there is a slight mea-  an end.  The Dominion of Canada with all her  prosperity and outlook has no more  garantee of permanence than these  nations of antiquity. The Lord reign-  eth, and though clouds and darkness  are around about him. justice and  judgment are the habitation of his  throne.  The great message that underlies our  text is that we must get, rid of self -  ishness. When I was pastor of a  church in Toronto, a gentleman pres^d  upon me to purchase some shares in  an installment loan company,'' holding  out as an inducement that the investment yielded dividends of from six -  teen to eighteen per cent. I asked  him what about the poor fellows from  whom theseT large prcfiis came. He  turned in anger and went out of my  house saying, "I think what a man has  to do in this world is to look after  himself." But. it this putting cf one's  self in the first place that brings so  much of miser:-, so much of hell into  this world.  The question where do the large  profits come from should be asked in  relation to every business transaction.  When a man takes advantage of a rising market in real estate and runs up  the price s? that he sells it. beyond  what he believes it to be worth to the  man who must actually use it, the ���������  s?me is a thief and a robber. Tlu-  mnn who by trickery carries the price  of wheat far beyond whe*-e the law of  supply and demand wou'd place it, and  thus crushes the poverty stricken peo  p'e who are depending upon the wheat  of this continent for their supnly. the  same is a thief and a robber. Whoever  by washing or watering or any other  practice carries the price of stock be -  yond its industrial dividend paying  value the same is a thief and a robber. He may play the game accord -  ing to the rules of the market, but if he  does not play it according to the Golden Rule, he cannot be a chrisfian.  He that entereth not in by the door ot  mutual service into the wealth fold,  but climbeth up some other wav. the  same is a thief and a robber. That is  good oldfashioned theology, with a  modern application. Jesus   would  drive out to-day the money changers  as he did from the temple long ago.  The greatest curse of the church to -  clay is found in the class of men who j  have all the    old    fashioned    virtues |  which are mixed up with a lot of new  fashioned ones which have come into.  vogv.e in this age, and which unfort - j  unately, the christian conscience of our  times is not sufficiently educated    lo  appreciate  at the  full  measure  their  Lo'lnousness.  Dent forgot to preach and tc prac-  .. .-.y ,-iat. those men Willi  feel your power. Don't do anything  that will blur your sense of justice.  Don't live any life, that will separate  your sympathies from the poor. It isj  a great thing to be an Evangelist, but  it is a hundred times better to be a  man One of our old ministers in Ontario was preaching in Revival ser -  vices, at the close of the morning-  sermon he was so earnest and his heart  so filled with love for the people whom  he sought to save that he said: "We  will not close this sermon by prayer  but will sing a hymn."  "Many are the friends  Who are waiting to-day  Happy on the Golden Shore.  Many are the voices  Calling us away,-  To join their glorious band.  Calling us away���������.  Calling to a better land/'  They sand another verse, and as they  sang the chorus the old man fell back  in the' chair behind him, and his spirit  had departed to be with God. * And I  suppose there is not one of us, but  who would feel it to be the supreme  honor of ones life in such a moment,  as that to be carried to heaven in a  chariot of fire, but I confess a death  occurred about the same., time which  moved my heart much more deeply.  Samuel H. Hadley, Secretary of  Jerry McAuley, for eighteen years Superintendent of Water Street Mission.  New York lay dying. They saw his  lips moying, and drawing near . to  catch what he had to say, tbey heard  him saying "My bums, My poor bums,  who will look after them now." Those  words carry my heart at once to Gal -  vary, and I hear my master saying���������  "Father forgive them, for they know  not what they do." This is bearing  one another's burdens and so fulfilling  the law of Christ.  But thirdly. Christ bore the burden  of conflict. It has been said of the  Laymen's Missionary Movement, that  it represents the Church Militant.  Thank God for it. It is one arch of  the great circle of primitive Christianity which is being reincarnated in this  world, but is it riot cheap heroism after all-, a banquet or two and five dollars per member a year. How cheap  it would be if it did not mean more  than that.  Thank God! It means the spirit of  sympathy, and better still, the spirit  of service.    Let it grow.  But when the sympathies of the Laymen have wandered around the world  in missionary e iort, they will come  home again in greater intensity and  rising above evangelizing, in the sense  of preaching the Gospel to this generation, they will join wjth us more  heartily than now in christianizing  this our beloved land. They will join  us in solid phalanx and marching upon the Parliament Buildings at Ottawa, demand that dregs of paganism  shall be expurged from oiir legislation  and that administration shall be carried forward  in the name of Christ.  Then shall the Church triumph over  all her foes and the saints shall rule  the earth.  Tt. is this conflict which shall ter-r  the fibre of our manhood. You young  men ministers must develop the typ-3  of man needed. The man that can  stand in.the high places of the field  and take all the shafts of scorn that  the devil can hurl at him; and bear  all the losses and crosses that wicked  men can inflict upon him, and make  sport of them all ���������  Courage, your Captain cries,  Who all your toil foreknew,  Toil ye shall have, yet all despise  I have o'ercome for you.  But finally and briefly as possible,  let-me say to you my brethren, that the  greatest conflicts are not outside but  inside. Upon the mouriMin tops and  in the deep valleys and behind ��������� the  battlements of your souls the fiercest  and most stubborn battles are to be  fought out. To me it is a thousand  times harder to be, than to do. I am  in the habit when I can of opening the  door of the chamber of love in my  heart and letting the people come in  and see and feel what is in there, but  I never open the door of that chamber  where the mighty struggles which  shake my being to its center are fought  out. I don't complain. Gods knows  what is best. I try to endure as seeing the invisible, but I will tell you  how I have been strengthened for  many years. I have carried iiumy  deepest heart the following words. I  do not know who wrote them���������  "Measure thy life by loss instead <1  gain,  Not by the wine drunk, but by win^  poured forth,  For love's strength standeth in love'j  sacrifice, /i  And who suffers most   has   most   til  give."  I have come to feel that God nevel  makes much out of any man unless il  some way his hands and feet know thf  piercing and his head the pressure d]  the Crown of Thorns    It is sail thai  the marks upon the hands and feet ol  our Lord which indicated his suf.lerinfl  were visible in the hands and feet Ojl  St. Francis of Assisi    This is believecl  by critical persons    I hav%. seen in th.fi  Louvre, Paris, a picture of a Pope lift-f  ing the robe of St. Francis to gaze up-,  on the marks of the nails in his feel']  His exceeding sympathy   with   his!  suffering Saviour had marked his own|  body, and somehow every   man   whe  reaches self development must   have  the sign of the Christ love   in   soi  way upon him   The servant must no'|  be above His Lord.  "Into the woods my master went  Clean forespent, forespent,  Into the woods my master came  Forespent with love and shame. '     ���������  But the olives were not blind to him  The little gray leaves were kind to hit  The thorn tree had a mind to him  When into the woods he came.  -Out of the woods my master went   'I  And he was well content  Out of the woods my master came  Content with death and shame.

Don't dlj  rppoint Jesus.  And as tbe result of our mediatU  this morning let us thank God that  have come to know that,  "Man'sjove ascends to higher and  viner ends  Than man's mere thought e'er comp  hends,"  and let us also thank God tbat whl  "Mahomet's truth tev in a holy bo  Christ's in a sacred life  So while the   world   rolls   on   frd  change to change  * -wfl~������ciniwv of "fboMcrht"expand".

"I give her everything she wants.  It is my pleasure to spare her any disagreeable responsibility that I possibly  can. Why should I wish���������why should  she. herself wish���������that she soil her  dainty fingers tampering with political  machinery? It is dirty work, even for  men."  "Perhaps," I said, "she resents your  denying her the right to free herself  from an asumption that she is a child,  an Idiot and a criminal."  "Deny her?" he exclaimed indignantly. "I deny her nothing! If she wants  to vote, why, bless her, let her vote.  But, my dear lady, take my word for  it, she doesn't want to."  But I didn't take his word for it. Instead, the very next morning I tucked  a paper under my arm, which chronicled on its front page an event of intense national importance, and tripped  across the street to his house. ,  "Oh," exclaimed his wife when she  caught sight of me, "you have brought  over the paper!

It is positively distressing to see  the frills on a barnyard-fowl-like neck,  yet'every day more women are buying  this sort of neck finish. The frills can  only be worn by those with a soft,  pretty neck, or by the young girls. For  the woman past twenty:five a soft,  lacey collar, comfortably'higb, is worn  on the street, The severe linen collars may be becoming, though they are  hard on the skin and good wrinkle-  niakers. A plain, semi-soft linen collar or stock with a perky little linen or  silk bow, or worn with a jabat, is sure  to be satisfactory.  Talking about necks, one finds often  a dark collar-mark about this time of  year. This can be removed with lemon  juice applied at night and then thoroughly massaged with cold salt water  in the morning, finishing the massaging with cold cream, wiping it all off  with a cloth and applying powder to  take away the stickiness. This treatment not only* whitens, but wrinkles  disappear as well;  "*'       ������     . .* ���������  The fashion of. hail dressing that is  worn by everybody now is out of date.

Fresh Cream  Daily  YOUR CUSTOM IS APPRECIATED HERE  HERE AND THERE  JUSTICE VS. OPPRESSION.  Ihe positive and imperative necessity of earlv and drastic re-  lorm in our procedure in administering justice'under Canadian  law is well exemplified in the case of one "Pete Foley" at Regina.  *oley is a member of the International Executive Board of the  ijrotherhood of Carpenters. He was at Regina in connection with  the Building Trades" strike and was charged with the offence of  asking a new arrival, who was a carpenter, if he had been hired  to break the strike, for which he was arrested and the following  is the report of a Regina correspondent :���������  "The prisoner, though innocent, was subjected to every indignity a criminal might receive. He was given no bed-clothes in  a cold cell the night previous to his trial. He was given nothing to  eat in the morning, and had to listen to brow-beating in the court  room until after the noon hour in that condition. He was hurried  off to jail after the promise had been given his counsel that he  would not be taken to jail until the question of bail was settled in  chambers."  History provides many incidents of similar treatment being  meted out to innocent prisoners, but it is hard to conceive that such  treatment could be given to a man in this free democratic country  and in this age of advanced civilization. We often contemplate  w;ith horror the villainy and cruelty of "Bloody Jeffries." We  view with indignation the treatment of political prisoners in Siberia by the Russian "Bear," and yet we will tolerate with apparent equanimity the abusive treatment of prisoners arrested upon a  purely civil charge. This case is not an isolated case by any means,  the same type of injustice is being administered in practically ali  our courts throughout Canada and it will continue* so to be until  such tune as we change our whole judicial system.  It is time we learned to treat the dangerous criminal scientifically. Treat him as a morally and mentally diseased patient. We  don t think it just to flog a man for getting scarlet fever. Then  why should we confine a man in prison to punish him because his  mind is diseased and his moral nature warped?  ^ But not only do we treat our. dangerous criminals in a most  idiotic manner, but we do not discriminate between a crime that  is a menace to the rights and lives of others and an offence which  is merely a difference of opinion between two or more distinct  classes of society.'  f In the case of Foley we have a man who. even if guilty, had  only exercised the right of expressing his opinion on a subject  viflder dispute and, forsooth, he must be degraded and abused.  There is Sot the vistage of justice in the procedure, and we purpose exposing and opposing all such actions on every occasion.  This is the gravest question awaiting solution today at the hands  of our Legislatures. It outweighs in importance and ultimate effect the construction of transcontinental railways, navies or bridges.  It will have ihore influence iii moulding the destinjes of our nation  than the developing of industries, making of foreign treaties, and  arranging of tariffs.  In short, the establishment of the government of a nation on  the sound foundations of democratic righteousness and economic  justice is of supreme importance.

The mandate has gone forth from the Attorney-general's Department that in future only lawyers and their students or clerks  are to be allowed in the registry office to search titles.  This we protest is unfair discrimination in favor of a class  and can work no particular good only in-so-far as it creates a  monopoly for the legal fraternity. We have no objections to the  Government forbidding the feneral public having access to the  records, if such a move is found to be in the public interests,.hut  before such action is taken/adequate provision should be made for  the supplying in an expeditious manner the necessary information  on application. At present if a person wishes a "Certificate of  Encumbrance," they have to wait for about two weeks to get it.  If they merely ask for a "search," there is nothing authoritative  about it, so.there is practically no course open other than to make  the search for oneself or by an agent.  But why the legal fraternity should have exclusive right is  1 beyond all possibility of comprehension.   You ask your solicitor  !; to search your title and he will send down a clerk or student, in  many cases a mere infant in experience, who is far from being  capable of doing the work, at least this is true in many cases, and  the client is charged a large fee to give a student practice.  To refuse an owner the privilege of searching the title of his  own property or that of property he wishes to purchase is working  an injustice on the public^    ^ ;   ^ -       _.,-.,,_  We submit that it is up to the Provincial Government to make  the necessary provision to give prompt and authoritative information as to titles'on application, and if any are to be excluded, all  should be. This last move on the part of the Department looks  very much like an effort to deprive the public of a just privilege  and notaries of legitimate business and give to the lawyer an additional leverage on the public purse.

Brodeur has mte with a slight rebuff from the  British Admiralty. It seems the London officials do not wish  to send over to Ottawa the plans for tbe new cruisers, which the  "amatuer" minister of the Canadian Navy wishes to get at once  in order to call for tenders for their construction.  The plans are new and it is desired by the Admiralty to keep  them as secret as possible and they rightly conjecture that once  they get to Ottawa they might as well send certified copies to all  other nations.  Canada is quite able to govern herself and manage her internal  affairs but we might as well admit at once that we know nothing at  all about naval construction. Nor do we yet know how to keep a  secret.  The British Admiralty has been in the navy business for centur-  ies, and has ben wonderfully sucessful, so it is no surprise to us  that they hesitate to send over carefully prepared plans, which no  doubt has cost a great deal of labor and money, and which in all  probability would soon become sommon property.  "We have previously advocated the formation of an Imperial  Board of Defence, or an Imperial Congress, whose duty it would  be to administer all matters of Empire-wide importance, and that all  the integral parts of the Empire should contribute a proportionate  amount of the cost of such body.  The question of Imperial Defence is one which has a much  deeper significance than merely building a navy. It has the possibilities of the instigation of a movement among world powers, which  would ultimately mean a navy for police purposes only.,  If the Empire is tn remain a factor in the world as a homogeneous influence.- then it s imperative that we have some common recognized authority to control her movements, otherwise she will  j be disintegrated by the very number and importance of her com-  'pouent parts and her influence be greatly lessened by the difference  J of opinion and interests which exists within her own hounds.  ' We are now a great "Federation of Nations" in fact, why can  j we not re-organize onr political arrangements to keep pace with our  i actual material developments.  A Canadian Navy must always he a joke and we will be a wise  ! people if we avoid a costly and humiliating exposure.

It may be truly said that the eyes  of all America, if not of the world, are  turned towards Uritish Columbia, and  it is a matter of common knowledge  that this great and growing province  presents better and more varied opportunities   for   the   safe   investment   of  capital  than   perhaps  anywhere  else.  Population is  rapidly increasing, and  the   same   is   especially   true   of   the  diversified   financial,   commercial   and  industrial interests, which continue to  grow   in  importance  year    by    year.  Railroad  building  is    being    steadily  prosecuted, such systems as the Grand  Trunk   Pacific,   the   British   Columbia  Central, the Howe Sound, Pemberton  Valley & Northern and the Canadian  Northern will open up vast tracts almost unbelievably rich' in mineral and  agricultural resources, and everywhere  is apparent the eager spirit of enterprise that accomplishes tangible and  pemanent results, and thus it is that  province in steadily increasing volume.  There are, of course, in  the  chief  city of British Columbia, Vancouver,  numerous channels through which is  brought in large volumes of Eastern  Canadian, American and British capital for investment on the Coast, many  of these being large, responsible financial institutions with branches or connections in England and in the east,  but there are also quite a number of  so-called   fiscal   agents  pr   promoters  whose standing and responsibility are  open to question.   This is not written  in order to belittle the man with small  capital who is striving to build up a  profitable  business hy the establishment of various enterprises, the stock!  of which he is-offering: to the public,'  but rather to impress the advisability  of placing capital  for: investment In  any enterprise through    *   financial  agency with well-understood responsibility, anility and'ample financial resources,-as only by a-close compliance  with' this' rule -can t profitable results  be achieved. 7"   '  Therefore, the busines men of this  city have appreciated the fact that the  best interests of the community would  best be served if the connecting links  between capital seeking opportunity  and opportunity awaiting capital  should be in the form of corporations  having  ample  capital    and  ver. Any enterprise that receives the  support of this company may be regarded as worthy of public encouragement and financial support and in the  event of the proposition being handled  by the corporation in question it is  reasonable to concede that such stocks  or bonds as it may offer in order to  establish such enterprises will be  speedily subscribed for by Canadian.  American and British investors. Anticipating a large influx of British capital into the province, or rather an increased volume as time shows the richness of its resources, the company has  established an English branch. Water  power, mining, timber and fishing propositions will receive special attention, 1  and in the sale of farm lands in the i  fertile valleys in the mountains, spec- j  of commencement, containing 80 acres.

The latest reports state  that another "gusher" sending forth  25,006 barrels a day, has broken forth,  about two miles from the "Lakeview  gusher.". This new well is situated  on the TJhion Oil Co.'s property, and  is only 150 feet from the property of  juraMuUn (the.

There ares now a number  of such institutions here, as we have  said before, and in the present instance we desire to direct the atten-  tion-of our-readers to one of the latest  and one of the most promising of  them all, namely Reginald C. Brown,  Limited.  This corporation has been recently  organized under the stringent laws of  British  Columlia with  ample capital  and with management of the highest  calibre.   Tho character of the institution can te gathered from the personnel of its directorate, which  is composed of Messrs. Reginald C. Brown.  L. D. Taylor. Mayor of Vancouver; H.  H. Stevens, alderman; Alvo von Alven-  sleben, Cecil W. Stancliffe, merchant;  F. H. Lantz, capitalist; S..G. Faulkner,  director   Western   Steel   Corporation;  S. J. Castleman, capitalist; R. G. Harvey, of Loewen & Harvey; E. W. Mac-  Lean, capitalist and director Dominion  Trust .Co., Ltd.; E. W. Leeson. wholesale merchant; and F. H. Stollard.   All  of the above, with the exception of  Mr. Stollard, who is the resident London director, are so prominently identified with large financial and industrial Interests of the province which  renders any personal mention unnecessary on our part, and they are als residents of Vancouver.  The company has been formed for  the purpose of placing outside capital  in sound industrial enterprises in Vancouver and at other points in the province, and will also acquire for development  or  for  retail Jarge  tracts  of  farming, coal and mining properties,  and no proposition -that will not bear  the most searching investigation will  be handled by it, as the directors arc-  all men who could not afford to have  their names identified with any enter-  I prise 0? a questionable character.    In  I the  exploitation   and   development  of  1 indnstrial   enterprises   in   Vancouver  I the company will particularly special-  ! ize, for it is a conceded fact that the  ��������� bringing  of  industrial   plants  to  this  city   will   greatly  increase  the   city's  1 population,    financial    and    industrial  prestige and create added value to lo-  city is the representative. A large  amount of the property in this locality  is held by B. C. capital, Vancouver  people  being  deeply   interested.  The Lakeview gusher is producing  about 50,000 barrels per day, and  seemingly there is no reduction in  pressure as. yet.

"How much is this Balzac?" he  asked an assistant outside.  "Twenty-five shillings," was the reply.  "Oh, that's far too much. I must  see the manager about a reduction,"  continued the prospective customer,  and, suiting the action to the word, he  took up the book and went into the  shop.  Approaching the bookseller, he took  the book from under his arm and  asked what he would give for it. "Seven shillings, highest offer," he was  told.

The author of the paper sees the  same- unconscious development taking  pace in the gradua growth of arbitration between states. In eary times  they woud choose as arbiter the Pope;  in modern times, some foreign sovereign. The lack of continuity of decision in this,system, which dealt with  the individual case, led up to the second stage, dating from the first conference, which involved the appointment  by international action of a panel of  judges, from which judges forming the  temporary tribunal are chosen. "We  stand." says the writer, "upon the veiy  threshold of the third and final development, when nations as a whole determine that international justice i.-.  the province of the international community, and constitute a court of international justice, to whicii litigant  states may resort in conflicts of importance." To-day, much has teen done.  The organization, jurisdiction, and procedure of this international tribunal  have been determined. Now. we merely await the appointment of judges to  establish a world-wide court in which  the nations may abtain justice as easily and readily as private suitors in  national courts of justice.  The author of this paper does not  go into the question of the enforcement  of the'findings of international arbitration. It is our belief that an international court should be backed by an  army, composed of drafts from the various armies of the world previous to  their disarmament, limited in numbers  and existing solely for the enforcement  of its decrees.

"One of the brightest auguries of  the dawn of a world-wide peace is to  be found in tbe fact that it has become  the fashion, during tbe past year or  two, to speak of armies and navies as  means for the preservation of peace.  When tbe leaders of the world, be  they presidents, kings, or emperors,  declare that every increase in the  armed strength of their respective  countries is undertaken for tbe express purpose of promoting peace, the  statement is generally acepted as sincere. Although the advocates of peace  by arbitration deplore the (enormous  investment of treasure, time, and label  involved in the maintenance of the  vast military organizations of the civilized world, they are beginning to believe that-the advocates of peace by  war are as anxious as they themselves  that the world's peace be permanently  preserved.  The establishment of the noble principle of international arbitration wil.  be, after all, meiely a repetition in the  international world of a ^process of  evolution from barbarism to civilization, which has ong ago taken place in  (he individual national world. Far  back in the beginnings of human history, the principle of self-redress was  paramount. If wrong of fancied wrong  was done, the injured party encompassed the daath of his enemmy by such  ready means as might be at hand  Gradually. wi<h the growth of intelligence, it was realized, notyiiily that  (he injured pariy w;is but a poor judge  of his own cause, but that the principle  of self-redress was subversive of the  peace and happinesss of the community. It was realized, also, that the  man whore brain was clouded with the  smoke of furious passion, was not st  well qualified a judge as some third  person and disinterested party, whe  could look upon the case in dispute  with an impartial eye; and so. gradually but surely, the principle of arbitration took shape and became the  stable rock on which osr wonderful  modern system of national jurisprudence has teen erected.  e have before us a lucid review of  the growth of the principle.of national  arbitration in a pamphlet published by  the Maryland Peace Society and writ-;  ten  by  James   Brown   Scott,' lecturer j  on   international   law   in   the   George j  Washington and John Hopkins univer- j  sities.

Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper, when  he had charge of the Department ot  Marine and Fisheries, arrived at the  office one morning at 10:lo. The clerical staff was supposed to be on hand at  10 o'clock, and, to make that certain.,  they each morning signed a book,  setting forth the exact time of their  arrival. This morning, just as he  turned into the corridor,'Sir-Hibbert  saw a clei k sign thy regis.er-aud disappear into his office. The Minister  glanced at the open page, and entered  his room. Within two minutes his  bell rang.  "Send Mr. So-and-so to nje," said Sir  Hibbert  to the  messenger.  In a moment the clerk entered.  "Mr. So-and-so. you signed the register this morning?"  "Yes. Sir  Hibbert."  "And you signed it as arriving at  9:45?"  "Yes. sir," answered tlie trembling  clerk.  "The true hour was 10:15. You  are dismissed from the service.
