SUBSCRIPTION $1 A YEAS  IN ADVANCE  Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province  IVOLUME II  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, AUG.   26,   1910.  No. 16  HERE AND THERE  LICENCE BY-LAW.  'Victoria is preparing a new Licence By-law to take the place  [of existing Laws. This By-law is a great improvement on former  Jones, being more strict as regards the premises, etc. Among its  ^provisions are the following:  "All licensed premises for the sale of liquor hy retail shall be  J situated upon the ground floor, the front of which shall be so that a  Iclear view can be had of the interior of the. saloon and billiard  room, if any, from without, during.prohibited "hours, and shall be so  [lighted as to make this possible. All existing licensed premises afore-  [said, shall immediately make the necessary alterations to conform  [with this regulation. ... ,...'..  "No person obviously under the influence of.liquor shall be  ^permitted' to remain in saioons or restaurants or in the bar-room of  la hotel, and no female customer shall be permitted to come upon  [or remain in saloons or bar-rooms. .  Any female supplied with drink or drinking shall be deemed  [a customer. 5  'Each such license shall auhthorize the licensee to sell spirituous  |or other liquors according to the terms and conditions thereof only,  jnd only upon the days not being Christmas day or being a day  Jixed for the holding of and'electing for mayor and aldermen for the,'  |ity of Victoria and during the hours as set by the city council.  * "No card playing, dicing, lottery, raffle, sweepstake or sale'of  |pttery, raffle or sweepstake tickets shall be permitted in or upon  |aid licensed premises.  "No gambling of any description whether with or without the  |ise of any machine or other device shall be permitted in or upon said  premises.  "Any person guilty of a breach of any provisions contained in  Ihis by-law (where no other penalty is prescribed by by-law for the  [pecial offeuce) shall on conviction forfeit and pay a penalty not  [xceeding one hundred dollars ($100.00). ,  "In addition to and not in substitution for the penalties set out  the next preceding subsection and person who shall have on two  lecasions been convicted of any infraction of this by-law, whether  je>r the same offence o\same class or kind of offence or not, shall on  port thereof by the chief of police to the board lose his license to  3ll liquor and the board shall not renew or grant the said license to  \\e said party so convicted or to any one on his or her behalf.-'  By the foregoing it will be observed that the power of stating  lie hours during which liquor niay be sold is vested in the City  I'ouneil. The same provision obtains in Vancouver and at present  |ie Licence Commissioners are strongly objecting to the City Council  cercisiug this right. It is simply a question" of policy and the  jouncil are certainly the most representative body and the proper  |uthority to state what hours should obtain.  This question of hours has been discussed frequently atvarious  [jiincil meetings but no decision, as yet, has beeii arrived at.  In almost every other section of the Dominion the hours of clos-  [g are 10 p.m. on ordinary days, and 7 p.m. on Saturdays. It is so  Jell known that a large percentage of drunkenness occurs after the  fctir-of 10 p.m.- Comparatively few men are intoxicated at that  \\iv, and to close them will materially reduce the habitual abuse  the practice, and this is, we are told, the anxious desire of those  J)o are in the business.  ���������Why should the the selling of liquor be attended with privileges  liich are denied other businesses? Grocers, dry-goods, butchers,  [rdware and other business houses close at 6 p.m. It would be  avenient to some if they did not. but the general comfort is con-  Jlted rather than the Avish of the few. So with the sale of liquor,  fry,-few persons wish for the privilege of consuming the various  ids of intoxicating beverages during the late hours of the evening,  Jd there is no logical or economic excuse for keeping these ''places'  len to such late hours as now-obtain.  ���������'������*.-���������  WHY NOT VANCOUVER?  The Monetary Timesi of the; 20thInst, contains an editorial on  subject of "Bonusing Industries,'' and rightly condemns the  |ictice.   The article referred to is in part as follows:  "We do not Bonus Industries."  "The Monetary Times desires to start a strong movement against  p.) practice,'unfortunately too common,  of municipalities giving  [e sites, tax exemption and other gifts to industrial and manu-  Jturiug companies.    The principle is wrong, and Tlie Monetary  les has always opposed it.   This country cannot afford to make  h sacrifices.   If a city or town has qualities, it will get the injuries and capital it deserves.    The municipal bonus system has  jn extensively tried, especially in Ontario, and practically has  |'n proved a failure.   The following towns and cities are opposed  lthe principle:  I Calgary, Alta.; Edmonton, Alta.; Peterborough, Ont.;. Welland,  What other cities and towns are opposed to the vicious principle  ithe industrial bonus?"  We would like to see Vancouver added to this list, and believe  It if it is generally known throughout the manufacturing world  It we offer "special favors" to none, but "equal privileges" to  j that it would result in more enquiries as to our suitability as a  jfition than if we offered a big bonus.  l1- We offer what no other city in the Dominion offers, viz., freedom  lall improvements from taxation. This is applicable to all im-  Pvements and therefore is not special privilege. There is no doubt  It in the course of a year or so thi.s fact will have a very bene-  II effect  in  attracting  to  Vancouver  many  industries," which  .jrwise would not conic here.  o      *    ��������� #  REDISTRIBUTION AND THE CENSUS.  Next year the census of Canada will be taken and as a eon-  hence/there will be a redistribution of seats in the Federal House.  The basis of representation is Quebec.    The fixed number for  J Province is 65,  aud the unit "of representation  elsewhere is  Lputed by the dividing of the total population of Quebec by 65.  %)ee has a population now of-approximately. 2,155,000. and this  fid-make'the unit of representation about 33,000.  lAecording to these figures, which are approximately correct,  Icouver will have 3 members from the city and in all probability  111 be at least 4 from the present constituency of Burrard.  gThe  whole  of British  Columbia  will   have   about  double  its  lent representation, and Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba  ihave 37 or 38 members instead of 27, as at present.    Ontario  rincrease her representation by about 8 or 10 members.    The  Jb Maritime Provinces will also increase slightly.  rThere will not. however, be as large an increase in Western  TLsentation as was expected, due. largely, to the fact that Quebec  Imereased very considerably in population also, and thus the unit  |ber is increased.   The prolific fecundity of the French-Canadians  ^countable for most of the increase in Quebec, also the colohiza-  \ efforts.  0. T. P. and Asiatic Labor  Westeners are Pronounced upon   the  question.���������They  want the Last Great West to be Peopled by  the White Races.  "Not one Asiatic has been employed in the construction of the  National Transcontinental'nor, will be," was the significant statement of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. the Premier of Canada, in |fis recent  addresses in Vancouver and Victoria on this subject, and yet, in  spite of this, we are forced to submit to the repeated efforts of a  sub-official of the government, Collingwood Schi*eiber, to force upon  British Columbia hordes of Asiatics. v  In commenting on the repeated efforts of this man Schreiber to  secure Asiatic labor in face of statement of the Premier and public  opinion, the Vancouver " World "says: "It may, perhaps, become  necessary for the Dominion Government to regretfully but firmly  suppress Mr. Collingwood Schreiber," and again the "World" says:  "The employment of one Oriental would make the statements of Sir  AVilfrid Laurier farcical." The "New sAdvortiser" in an editorial  comment, says? "Mr Schreiber and the G.'.T. P. ma,y as well understand that only white labor will be allowed. There is no doubt that  white labor can be got to complete this work in the specified time.  It would coat more than Oriental and some trouble inight be required to get it, but-'European labor is available and plenty of it, if  the company will go after it and pay the price."  There is more than a desire to construct the National Transcontinental, on schedule tinie behind this anxiety to introduce1 Oriental labor into B. C. It is a detiuite effort to undermine a type of  laborers which will be virtually slaves. There is a class of men  who look upon all "toilers" as of a different species from themselves  and they-bent-every effort to keep the "worker'* in a humiliating  position. This sentiment is, born of arrant selfishness and those  holding it are incapable of anything approaching patriotism. Such  an one is this man Schreiber and the sooner he is "suppressed," as  suggested by the leading liberal organ, the better for the country.  LAURIER; THEN McBRIDE.  Collier's Weekly contains- the followiug editorial comment on  "Dick's" tactful reception of the Premier of Canada:  "Eastern newspapers will have noticed that Sir Wilfrid Laurier  had to go three thousand miles from home to find a man who could  play polities aA well as h^^^  Richard McBride, affectionately called Dick by his loving subjects.  That public reception a������t Victoria in whicii Premier McBride joined  to honor the grand old man of Canada was a master stroke. It not,  only took the edge off Sir Wilfrrid Laurier's visit to British Columbia, but it disclosed Premier McBride a magnanimous hero. Why  should one big man be afraid of another? Do stars of the first  magnitude clash in their orbits'? Premier McBride is well content  that Sir Wilfrid should be the grand old man of Canada if he can  remain the grand young one. Gazing in Premier McBride's face  as in a looking glass. Sir Wilfrid saw himself as he was, say, thirty  years ago when his step had more spring and his heart more blithe-  ness. The same forehead, same nose, same figure, same iron grey  hair, only more of it���������yes,, and the same brains, the same stage tricks,  the same sunny manner, and. perhaps, the same ambition. Canada  will always have a premier grooming somewhere. Premier McBride  has given British Columbia a good government. Some people quarrel  about the details of his railway policy, but he is right enough when  he says that, if this empire of his is to be straddled, railways must  do it,.,They..made the prairies.   They will-make British GV)liimbia:"-  There has been considerable comment upon this now famous  reception that the Conservative Premier of British Columbia tendered to the great Liberal Premier of Canada. On all sides it is  admitted that it was a political master-stroke on the part of the  younger man.  One of the "Politicians," who accompanied the Premier, stated  to the Pressmen on board the Princess Charlotte just previous to  entering Victoria harbor. "Now. boys, you will soon see the sue:  cessor to our grand old Chief tan.'' The surprised pressmen asked,  "Why, who do you mean?" Tin; .significant and somewhat sorrowful reply was: "After Laurier. the Deluge, after the Deluge.  McBride." Those who know Dick personally are convinced that his  recent action was one of genuine magnanimity,-prompted by a keen  appreciation of the exalted and honorable position held by Sir  Wilfrid, and by a desire to extend to him a typical Western welcome.  It is this generous personality, together with his native ability and  successful career, that will carry "Dick" McBride to the Premier's  chair in Ottawa.  The "Standard of Empire" in an editorial says:  "In British Columbia Premier McBride took the lead in arranging a demonstration in Victoria to Sir Wilfrid. And every one  knows that Mr. McBride.is not only tile leader of tho. .Conservatives  in the Province, but. by many, is looked to as the hope of the.  Dominion Conservatives in the West."  OUR LOANS.  That Canada has borrowed from other countries, in the form  -of Government and industrial loans over One Billion Dollars during  the past ten years is a fact worthy of deepest consideration.  The interest on this amount at, 4J/S per cent, amounts to about  45 Millions of Dollars. Our average wheat crop for the Northwest  is'90 Million bushels which, at $1.00 per bushel,-is only equal to an  amount just double our interest debt.  In other words we are annually paying a tribute to other countries and peoples equal to one half of the total value of our wheat,  crop.  -Perhaps the alarming feature of the situation is that we are  increasing the ratio of our borrowings. Last year we obtained  ���������-tLSO.000.000.00 in new capital. Is it any wonder that London is a  little slow in taking up some of our recent issues? Not because our  credit is impaired, but simply because the proposition has attained  such large proportions as to require most careful study to determine  the exact economic relation of our bonded indebtedness to our  agricultural wealth. /  There Is sound reason in the attitude of the Banks in advising  more care in the expansion of commercial enterprise, and we would  do well to stop oecassionally and peer into the future and calculate  the effect our present fast pace will have upon coming years of a  possibly less prosperous character.  OF INTEREST TO ALL  THE METHODIST CONFERENCE.  Several matters of extreme importance were up for discussion  before the Methodist Conference now in session at Victoria. The  question of extending the pastoral term from 4 years to 8 years was  defeated after a very sharp discussion.  The problem of "higher criticism" has been discussed by the  educational committee at great leiigth aud with considerable warmth.  The extremists on both sides of the question are exceedingly determined and many of the moderatists fear that it will result in a  serious split in the ranks of the denomination.. Chancellor Burwash  of Toronto seems to have struck the right key when he goncluded an  eloquent speech on the subject with these words: "Let us seek to  observe- in all essentials, unity, in non-essentials, liberality, in all  things, charity.  An effort is being made to repeal clause 35 of the rules which  refers to dancing, card playing, etc., but there is a strong opposition  to its repeal, but it is expected that this clause will be amended so as  i to permit dancing and card playing. The question of dancing is a  touchy one> but we think that the founders of the Methodfet church  knew what they were-doing, when they'discountenanced it. It is  rather difficult to discuss it without giving offence, but one thing  is certain, and that is that the "Publie Dance" is one of the greatest  curses of modern society. Highly respectable women are brought  into close relation to characters whom under ordinary circumstances  they would never allow in their homes.  As a destroyer of domestic felicity and womanly modesty, the  public dance exceeds all forms of social vice. Nothing too strong  can be said in denouncing this form of social dissipation. If the  Methodist church throws down the bars in this regard it will simply  be because a limited minority wish it and will not in any way  strengthen the church as a moral power.  The clause in the rules .which refers to extravagant dressing was  struck out on a vote of 165 to 101.  The Committee on Social and Moral Reforms introduced a  resolution strongly condemning the action of the Minister of Justice  at Ottawa for pardoning King and Skill of Toronto, who had 1>een  . committed to jail for selling obscene literature. This case has roused  wide-spread indignation and resulted in action being taken by  many public bodies.  A memorial will also be prepared and forwarded to the Imperial  authorities in relation to the.opium traffic., urging them to pass* such  legislation as will be of material assistance to China in her efforts  to abolish the traffic in that cpuhtry7  A very animated discussion occurred regarding the appointment of an additional General Superintendent. The committee  appointed to report on the subject,: suggested that three General  Superintendents.-.be appointed,: one for a term of S years and two  for a term of 4 years. This recommendation was not accepted, however, but an ammendment appointing two was finally adopted. The  election resulted in Kev. Dr. Carman being re-elected, with Dr.  Chown running a good second. The result was received with a burst,  of applause, Dr. Carman is much'respected and honored. He has  proven himself a most able chairman and a keen executive officer.  It has long been felt, however, that his duties were too numerous  and this led to the provision for an assistant, or more properly, for  a second General Superintendent.  The election to this office resulted in an overwhelming majority  for Dr. Chown, formerly Secy, of Social and Moral Reform.  ������      #      *  Dr. Chown.  The choice of Dr. Chown for the position of General Superintendent of the Methodist Church in the West, Avill be greeted  throughout Canada and elsewhere with the utmost enthusiasm.  Dr. Chown has won for himself the golden opinion of all with whom  he has been brought into touch, from the Premier of Canada down  toi the%Mvmblest,���������citizen. His duties as Secretary of the  of Social and Moral Reform has brought him into intimate relations  with all the governing bodies of Canada, from the Federal down to  that of the municipal council, and Dr. ChoAvn has won the confidence  and earned the respect of them all. It is counted a privilege by  many legislators, chief constables and officials to seek and obtain  the mature advice of this great-spuled man.  It is not a common occurance for a Chief of a Police department  of a large city to request as a favor the advice of a Moral and Social  Reformer," and yet. that'is what frequently happens in the case of  Dr. Chown.  Many reforms which-arc being introduced in the prisons, in  education, in government,-etc.. and carried out successfully are  due to the direct influence of this man. He works quietly, but very  potently. There is no blare of trumpets, no unnecessary condemnation, no big stick performance, where Dr. Chown is concerned, but  the firm, kindly action of a great soul with a vision. The quiet,  intelligent;, respectful presentation of the ease to the proper authorities, with duo regard for their feelings and position, and it is seldom  that he lias failed to gain his point If he fails the first time,  another effort is made. but. with ever a deep respect- and sympathy  with the opposing party, ft is thi.s characteristic courtesy and coii-  sistaney which iias won for Dr. Chown such wide-spread respect  and confidence.  To all men, both of high and low degree. Dr. Chown is a friend  and sympathizer, and one instinctively feels that in him they have  one who can understand and who will help.  His life, from day to day, is a consistant and truthful interpretation of the teachings of the Great Man of Nazareth, and iu choosing  him as a General Superintendent. Tlie Methodist Church of Canada  has done more for the advancement of the moral interests of the  country than could have been obtained by the appointment of any  other man.

This makes less than twenty-four  per cent with new fenders. This is  not justice to the motormen or acci  dent insurance people; the one is sent  to work with a poor defence in case  of an accident and the head offices  of the other must be far away from  Vancouver or they would surely raise  their rates.

VANCOUVE      R, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  THE FACTORS OF INDUSTRY.  That capital and labor are the prime  factors in the production of wealth  was always a mistaken belief and is  now an outworn doctrine, we are told  by an editorial writer in "Engineering" (London, July 8). He admits  both as factors, but ranks labor second and captital third. First cf all he  places enterprise, aided by experience  and knowledge.   We read:  ��������� "There is plenty of capital iu the  city, and plenty of labor walking the  ���������streets, yet they do not- produce  wealth. Enterprise, aided by experience and knowledge in the form of  management, is: required to utilize  these forces���������i.e., capital and labor.  Labor is the second factor in production, an.I capital the third factor. It is  essential, however, that management  and labor should be highly skilled, for  otherwise neither can profitably asist  capital.    .    .  "We have indicated that enterprise,  experience, and knowledge are the  ��������� principal factors in wealth production.  This applies to the manager in management, and to the workman at his  machine. Modern economics demand  this differentiation. Enterprise, knowledge, and concentration are wealth  productive, and especialy so if confined within the sphere of activity in  which experience has been gained. In  other words, specialization is the key  to profitable production. If these  forces are to be utilized for the com  mon good, they will require some form  of organization, and a good organization ���������������������������requires good management. If  these forces are not organized and  managed, unemployment will be prevalent in labor^tind in the higher spheres  of life. Wt perforce see that one of  the greatest factors in production is  management, and as the evolutionary  process advances we recognize this  more and more. ���������  "The large producer has many advantages which the smaller has jiot;  he can afford to install new machinery  built specially for cheapening production as it apepars on the market.

AN   AMERICAN    ICE   FACTORY  OPENED   IN   ANCIENT  SMYRNA.  By Ernest L. Harris   Consul.  Seven hundred years before the  birth of Christ, Smyrna, in Asia  Minor, rose as one of the foremost  cities of the then known world. Lying partly on the slopes of Mount  Pagus, the city presented then, as it  does now, an imposing appearance.  Lydean Greek, Roman, Macedonian  there erected magnificent palaces at  different times, wars and earthquakes  raged within its confines, a Christian  church rose at an early date, and  there Polycarp is said to have suffered his martyrdom. But with all  its beauty and riches, methods for  keeping the public health were crude  in Smyrna. Sewerage, pure water,  good lighting, sanitary houses were  ed.

One of the most difficult problems  in long-distance telegraphy, and yet  more in telephony, has been the pro-  mount thought in every intelligent  mind, and one of the best evidences  of this is that Smyrna, yet filled with  ancient superstitions, yet opposed to  many needed modern improvements,  has permitted an American ice factory to be erected within its confines,  and pure ice *knd water are to be at  duction of satisfactory relays.    A re- the command of the people.  lay is a device for re-transmitting a  message after it has been enfeebled  at the end of a section by the resistance of the circuit. In long-distance  telephony it was at first attempted to  make a microphone serve as a relay  at the end of each section, but this  plan failed because what was gained  in loudness was lost in clearness. Mr.  S. G. Brown, in England, has now produced a telephone relay with which  it is hoped to attaip satisfactory results. His apparatus consists of an  improved form of microphone combined with the principle of the coherer, but it does not admit of a popular description. Speech or signals too  faint to be heard in a Bell receiver  are clearly heard in the new relav.  more true than in engineering. Cheap It is a]so a^pllcable in wireiess tele-  production is a boon to humanity, for granjjy  it tends to bring luxury within the  reach q������ all; cheap production in one  Bphere of activity stimulates further  production in other spheres of activity, as it makes possible what in other  circumstances might be impossible.  As an illustration, let us take the case  of a sewing-machine. This is a necessity in most hohies, more especially  in poor ones. If the cost of producing  these machines were high, only the  better-class families could afford to  buy them; but if the cost of production be low, every family may buy  them; but if the cost'of production be  low, every family may buy them; and  so we come to see that one of the es-  FREAK   NEWSPAPERS.  A newspaper which can be eaten  after it is read, thus affording nourishment for the body, has been published in Paris, and is called the Regal. It is printed with ink that is  guaranteed as non-poisonous, on thin  sheets of dough.  Another odd newspaper is the Lu-  minaria, published in Madrid. The  ink used oh this paper contains a  small percentage of phosphorus, so  the print may be read in the dark.  At two French seaside resorts the  eential factors    in luiman    wefare is j newspapers are printed on waterproof  I  I  I  I  cheap production. It shoud be our  main object in life, therefore, to bring  about a general recognition of this  principle; to see that the economic aspect of it is thoroughly understood by  the workman himself. But it should  be borne in mind that cheap production will not be brought about by  cheap labor or by forcing labor to do  more than it is physically capable of  doing. " Labor should have an adequate return for the services which it  performs in production, and labor  should not expect more."'  paper, so that the subscribers can  take their papers into the sea and  read while bathing.  One of the most useful of these  freak newspapers is published in Norway. This is printed on so tough a  quality of paper that it can be cut  into strips and twisted into serviceable rope when it.has served its usefulness as a paper.  This factory, now in operation, produces seventy tons of crystal Ice each  day. Wlien the factory first opened,  it looked as if it would fail. Ice is  quite an unknown quantity in many  parts of Turkey. '- Thousands of children and grown folks there have  ! never seen it. Set a block of ice  before some of them, and they would  cry out that "evil spirits" had produced it, and therefore it must not be  touched.  But the promoters of the factory  took a novel course to educate the  people of Smyrna to the useful value  of ice. They established small ice  depots at various points of the city.  To these the ice was delivered in  small push carts. The carts were  open, so that the people could see the  ice. They could study it from every  point, of view and ascertain that it  was harmless.  As the push carts passed through  the city, some would put their fingers  on the ice, feel the cold, and then  dodge away as if they expected the  small chunk ' to pursue them. When  it did not rise out of the cart and attack them, they would return and ask  questions of the American agents:  "The ice is cool and pleasant to  the tongue, but was it not evilly  made?  "Will I not be cursed if I touch it?  "What is ice?

I said unto my tired heart:  Let's go  away together;  We'll leave these murky, smoky skies,  and  find the bright, blue wea-  iher;  We'll breathe the air of piney hills,  and   drink   at   sparkling   fountains;       <,  And see  no stretch of high-walled  streets,   but gaze  on  glorious  mountains.  All this, the writer thinks, points toward amalgamation, but not in a form  in which individuality 'will be sup.  prest. . He says:  "We know that all men are not  equal ;n ability, and can not be made  so, but it is desirable that all men  shall have equal opportunities. In the  countries in which this principle finds  the widest acceptance economic progress is the greatest. The enormous  business activity in the United States  of America is in a large measure d-. /  to this. One ofNthe advantages of the  free play of individuality is that by it  the creative class of man���������the. man  with ideas���������is brought to the front.  Men are divided into three classes,  viz.: 1. The creative, the mon of  genius, the originators. 2. Those who  manage for the first���������the administrators. 3. Those who do the labor appointed by the first and second, the  artizar.s."  Men of the first class, the writer believes, will always be the real governors of the state. They are born not  made, but economic conditions should  be fostered, that will favor their free T#  breeze-swept  hills,   and  orchard  Oh, far and far we'll go away, beyond  the reach of worry.  And, where  the hours  are  long and  still, forget our rush and hurry.  No clanging bell, or  phone,  or  rule  shall summon us to duty;  We will put by the stress of life, and  find some of its beauty.

There  are millions and millions outside of  our hemisphere who yet do not know  what a locomotive is, what a trolly-  car looks like, what an ordinary plow  is, what artifically-made ice means  for health and comfort.  The Americans who brought the ice  making plant to Smyrna "did have  patience. They had their blocks of  ice. carriedL.throughthe _city so that  all might see them. They melted  before the public eye and did no harm  to anyone. When some person "was  brave enough to chip a piece off of  one of the blocks and melt it in the  mouth, he felt better, not worse for  the experiment. ���������   -      ���������  Gradually it began to be known  among the people that this "strange"  ice would help a child with fever;  that it produced a water better than  the city���������now 2,600 years clu���������could  furnish.  There are many schools in Smyrna  ���������some Jewish, some Christian, some i  Moslem. The children of these began I  to follow the push-carts and chip at  the ice. After they had found out  how useful the ice might be, there  was little trouble in finding a market  for the product, every bit of whose  producing machinery was made in a  land six thousand miles distant, and  whose cities were form 1,fi00 to 1.S00  years younger than Smyrna���������which  is just another reason why no one  thinking that the world doss not move  or imagine for one instant that the  world is not growing better year by  year for all who strive to da what is  righ,t.  The Smyrna ice factory is now  firmly established. Its success has  had a remarkable effect on all the  other large cities of that Asia Minor  around which so much interesting  biblical history centers. Ice plants  are now being ordered for these other  cities and the machinery is on the  way to them. Asia Minor, after a  long slumber, is awakening into a  new fie'ld of activity, fulfilling the old  prophecy:  "Where My seed is planted it shall  not die."  home which face the north are the  least cheerful of any in the- house.  The. heart of the girl who looks, on  the bright side is like a garden with  a southern exposure, or a room whose  windows admit the morning sunshine.

"You can not argue with a woman." That was a favorite indictment of our brothers once upon a  time, and whilst there may Tiave been  a millionth part of a fraction of truth  contained therein it is not so today.  In the past she never had a chance  to demonstrate her powers of argument, with the exception of. certain  periods in the classical history of  Greece and Rome. Since "to be seen  and not heard" has quite gone out of  vogue, with regard to children, is it  reasonable, brothers, to- make it a  hard and fast rule for mothers? Because woman, has been silent so long  it has been concluded that she can  not present a sensible argument.  Hold on, brothers. Women are adepts  in sub-conscious reasoning, which we  call intuition, and they arrive at. their  conclusions (invariably correct, too)  without the long, labored, logical process pursued by man. Now the true  woman wants to be a true comrade to  man, to work in co-operation with  him, not in opposition, for the former  means life, the latter death. When'  men recognize the great truth of political equality they will consult their  lady comrades on all issues relative  to the home orthe State, which is but  the larger home, and they will  thereby save many precious hours  ���������and tempers, too���������and avoid many  mistakes'and failures.

A truly representative government must represent women as wel las men. What is the definition of "government of the people,  for the people, by the people?" Why  are not women included in the term  "people?" Whom do the laws concern? iMen only! If a woman breaks  the laws of her country she suffers  the penalty of the law equally with  her brother-man. Why may she not  have an equal voice in making the  laws which govern her? Is not woman a citizen?. Why has not an intelligent citizen a voice in civic, and  national affairs? Does the tax collector recognize the woman of property? Is taxation without representation legal? Why may not mothers  help make the laws which decide  their legal relations to their children?  Have they nothing to do with tlie  training of the future citizens and  subjects of this great Empire? Why  may not a woman express her preference for a man "of calibre and sterling  principle to be placed in authority  over her, rather than a characterless  biped who is governed by the dollar?  If the vote means power to a man,  does not a woman need the same  power to protect the interests of her  self, children, home.

The scene is laid-in France, where, owing to financial depression, the  poorer classes sul'ler for the necessaries of. life. Jean could secure no employment. He could starve himself���������the poor in some countries learn that  art early���������but to hear the fatherless children of his sister cry for bread was  more than he could endure, and one night, when all was quiet, he slipped  away to the baker's shop, where he had seen bread during the day, and  breaking a -pane cf gl-3ss put in his hand; but the baker, fearing just such  an attack on his shop, was ready. Jean ran fast, but the baker ran faster,  and as a result .lean was arrested and received a hUavy sentence, all the  circumstances of the case being considered. From that day Jean started to  harden .and all humanity seems to ttunits back on him. He tries to escape  several times, but fails, and each time years of hard labor are added to his  already severe sentence.  Finally, after nineteen years of convict, life, having cleverly disguised  himself, he makes.,a start in the commercial world, and success attends his  efforts.' He amasses considerable wealth, and becomes Mayor of the town  whpre his jet factory is located. But his chief of police suspects that Mr.  Mayor is the famous ex-convict, Jean Val Jean, who escaper from the  clutches of the law. Je.^.n realizes he is discovered, and flies, with Javert,  the Chief of Felice, in hot pursuit. Jean takes with him Cosette, a little  girl, the daughter 'of'n.woman whom lie had ofttimes befriended)  To follow the movements of Jean Val Jean, Cosette and Detective Javert,  and mark the various steps by -which Jean achieved a nobility of character  that has few equals in literature, is thrilling and intensely interesting, and  those who hear Dr. Cleaver tell the story in his own inimitable style, will  not soon fcrget.

The  Crop.  A good average crop is now well assured throughout the west, and this  has already had a good effect upon  the money market. There is, a; general feeling of confidence in all business circles resulting from the definite  knowledge of the exact conditions of  the crop. It is estimated that there  will be an average yield of 30 bushels  to the acre in the northern parts of  the three prairie provinces and about  15 bushels in the southern portions,  aud an estimated total yield of between 90 and 100 million bushels of  wheat, and approximately 100 million  bushels of oats. The wheat market  h;is been rather dull, but during the  past, week has somewhat recovered,  and gives evidence of an upward tendency owing to reports I'roni France  of a failure of crop and also from reports that the world's supply is not  so great as expected.  on its $180,000,000 Ordinary capital,  including ������30,000,000 issued in November last, but which is not yet fully  paid and' does not this year rank.for  twelve months' dividend.

The somewhat lower pMse paid for "Red Cliff"  recently is due largely to an anticipated drop upon the opening of the  pool, but it is expected that after September 1 this stock will again advance.

It is reported that a  good strike has been made on this  property, which is crenting . considerable interest.  The New York market still remains  weak, and many prominent stocks  have fallen several points. This feeling is due to the unsettled political  conditions in federal matters.

THE  TOO   SMALL  TO   DIVIDE.  The bright-faced little lad who had  applied for the position of office boy  stood anxiously waiting while tlie  proprietor pondered. The latter surveyed   the   young   applicant   with   a  /  NOTICE.  was not very hopeful of really valuable service.  "1 wonder whether you expect tc  engage-as a whole boy or half a boy.  'most likely," he said, musingly. The  grey eyes in the freckled face flashed  inquiringly wide, and he explained:  "Oh, I don't mean to question your  having' the requisite number of arms  and legs; your body is all right; it is  your mind I am talking about���������your  thoughts, wits, memory. I suppose  you have a host of schemes and employments of your own that will be a  great deal more important than anything here. You are interested in ball  games and���������"  "Oh!" the boy suddenly comprehended, and drew himself up like a  soldier on duty.   "Yes, sir, I like ball  111 tie all there.    I'll play for all I'm������  worth   both   paces,   and   I' ain't   big  enough to divide." 1  He gained his place, and he is true  to his word, but his opinion of himself-'is one that other boys should  adopt for themselves. Few of us are  big enough to divide, in the sense of  giving only half our mind to the duty  in hand. It takes a whole boy to do  the work God wants him to do. And  what applies to boys applies equally  well to girls.���������Selected.  "Why should one half of the world  be governed'by the other half?" quei--  ied my friend.  "Indeed," I replied, "I cannot for  the life of me answer that question.  Perhaps it is because the men have  a monopoly of reason. Who ever  heard  of  an  unreasonable  man?"  "In my opinion," she continued,  warmly, "they, and the laws they  make, are not only unreasonable, but  unbearable. Talk about "Reform";  it's the men and their laws that really  need reform. In this 'new age' they  set about the reformation of everything but the most essential���������thepr  own conduct. There is one old-fashioned idea, which, according to the  laws of the Medes and Persians, you  dare not touch with a long pole without incurring the death penalty, that  antiquated, barbaric idea of the tyranny of man over woman."  "You are somewhat severe on the  poor men," I said.  "No, sister, I believe in connnon-  sense and justice, that's all. Why, I  ask again, should the lesser pan of  the human race hold the majority in  bondage  and  slavery?"  "Oh, I suppose it's customary since  the "days of Adam," I replied.  "Did the Almighty authorize Adam  to beat his wife? If so, then I've no  use for such a God. Such would be  unworthy of a^ heathen deity, much  more of a God of justice," she exclaimed, with warmest emphasis.  "As to the origin of "the idea, I  would not definitely dogmatize," I reply, "for I'm not much of.a philosopher; but my own conclusion is that  man derived that notion from his ancestor, the anthropoid ape."  "No doubt," she continued, "and it  became an unwritten law in primitive  ages, and incorporated ultimately in  that collection of sacred writings, the  'British Statute Book.'!'  "Is that a- fact?" I asked. "I was  not aware that such was the case."  "Oh, yes," she exclaimed, "it's that  in effect, whatever may be the phrase  ology. Under our * sublime laws, a  man has the privilege and right to  beat his wife almost to death, provided he uses a stick no bigger than his  thumb, and so the 'wife beater' is no  extinct species yet."  "Surely, sister," I reply, "that's a  very literal rendering. It can't possibly mean that. You know, we don't  even take the literal interpretation of  the Bible these days. You are surely  misinformed."  "Well, anyway that's man's interpretation of the law, for it's a fact  that tbe white man still has his amusement of thrashing bis wife, hlack  and blue, and she cannot legally protect herself, nor her children from his  brutality, and yet some of you women  say, 'Let well alone.' You exasperate  me," she said, now very strongly  aroused. To which I made no .reply,,  and she continued further her campaign of enlightenment.  "And tbat's not the only anomaly  of our man-made laws. There's that  outrageous one about woman's wages.

Go about the  room,  forcibly  shuffling- the  feet  on  the   carpet,   th(en   lightly   touch   the  face of another person, and an electric  spark will pass from one to the other.  If it is dark, the spark may be seen;  in any case it may be heard to snap,  and be keenly,  almost painfully  felt  by the person receiving it.    The action of the performer has generated  electricity and stored it in his body;  the  person  whom he touches  is  not  equally charged.   Electricity tends to  equalize itself, just as air rushes to  fill  a  vacuum  or  water  to  find  its  level.    The  person  touched  is   in  a  negative state, hence receptive, ready-  to receive.   The person who performs  it is in a positive state, ready to give.  When he touches the other, the electric conditions of the two persons are  equalized.    In  the  same  manner  he  may light  the  gas  by  touching  the  burner;  but someone else must turn  the gas on, as he will lose the electric charge if he does it himself.

(Scientific American)  In view of the great size of modern  engineering and architectural structures, and the vast- areas which they  expose to the wind, it is strange that  our knowledge of wind pressure,  is .of. the first importance; for in some  framed structures, .such as bridges,  roofs, etc., cases have occurred in  which the calculations have shown  that.the wind stresses ha,ve been  greater than those arising from the  weight of'the structure itself or ef  the load which it carries. As an instance of the magnitude of the pressures to which exposed surfaces are  liable, we refer to our recent discussion of a large sign, 60 by 90 feet in  area, erected above a hotel in this  city, which in a gale of wind is liable  to experience a maximum presure of  no less than 94 1-2 tons.  Our   present   knowledge   regarding  wind pressure on exposed surfaces is  based on certain observations by the  late Sir Benjamin Baker, taken prior  to  and  during  the   erection   of  the  Forth  bridge,   Scotland.     Mr. Baker  provided a large surface, whicii was  so  supcrted   that   not  only  was  the  total  pressure  07)   the  whole surface  automatically leeorded, but, by means  j of pressure g'uages, any local excess  I of pressure    on small   areas   of the  board were separately recorded.   The  data   thus   gathered   established   the  hitherto    unsuspected    fact    that    a  strong   wind   r?-?es   not   always   blow  with -even intensity, but is composed  of masses of air movir-g; with varying  pressures.      It   was     eiviblislied,   01  rather assumed, on. this basis, that a  small structure such as a 100-ft county  bridge was liable to be exposed over  its  whole  surface to  a much higher  unit   pressure   than   a   1,710-ft.   span  like    those    composing    the    Fofth  bridge.  The British Government regu  lations   required    that    bridge  to.   be  built  for an average  pressure of  56  lbs. per  square  foot,  but  Sir Benjamin's  experiments  proved,  or rather  suggested,  that  while  this  might  be  advisable  for  a  short  bridge, it was  too high for a bridge of great length  Hence,    bridge    engineers    are   now  using tor   long-span   bridges  a  uniform   pressure:- of  30   to   35   lbs.   per  square foot.    In the interests of safe  engineering,  however,  it is  desirable  that  the   data   secured   by   Baker   be  amplified, and their truth further established, by-more  elaborate investigations  carried  on  at  different locations,', and for longer periods of time.--  / Another   branch     of   this     subject  which  calls  for  additional  investigation ,is the question *of the pressure  of the wind on inclined and cn curved  and irregular surfaces.    We al know  that the  wind  pressure is  less on   a  cylindrical   column   than   it  is 011   a  square   column     of   equal     projected  area.    One experimentalist found that  the-difference was in the ratio of two  to three;  but the data upon this subject also are based upon a too limited  range of observation.    Here is a field  of research  cf the very highest importance,  which  should  be  attractive  to our technical colleges, and to those  scientific institutions which have the  means and the time to devote to an  investigation of this character.  FORQETFULNESS '    NO      EXCUSE.  Do not wait to be reminded of the  promise you have made. When you  have given your word, you have  made yourself responsible for keeping it. There a* some girls who  brak thir promiss bcaus thy do not  feel like keeping them, and others  who make'forgetfulness an excuse.  But -when you have given your word,  you should keep it, even if it costs  something, and you have no more  right to let yourself forget a promise  than' you have to break it deliberately.  "No, sir,  everything  Is  all  right��������� J    TAKING TIME TO BE A GOOD  EVERYTHING   ALL   RIGHT,   BUT���������  The late depression we have had in  the financial world caused a friend cf  mine to be much worried. He went  to his physician, who advised him to  take a rest. .  "Now, Charlie," he said, "you must  stop smoking and excitement of all  kinds; in fact, you must keep entirely  by yourself; receive no mail, read no  letters, and get no news from the outside world. Go away, sir, for~a  month."  i\fy friend did this, and was much  improved. Returning, home he met  his butler at the station, and said:  "James, how is everything? All  right?"  "eYs, sir, everything is all right,  sir.   Purty good"���������  "Anything    happen    while  -������vay?"  except your dog, sir."  "My dog?".  "Your dog, sir."  "What's happened to him?"       ",.  "He's dead"���������  "Yes, sir."  "What did he die of?"  "I don't know, sir. I think it was  from eating burnt horse esh, sir."  "Burnt horse flesh? Why, h6w did  that happen?"  . "Well,  I  don't  know,  sir.    I  think  it was from the barn, sir." .'  "The barn?"  '   "Yes,, sir.    The barn burned down,  sir."  "Why, how did that hapen?"  "Well, you see, sir, I think it was  from the sparks from the house"������������������  "What house?"  "Why, house.   It burned down, sir."  "What! My house burned down?  Why, how did that catch fire?"  "I don't know exactly. I think it  was from the curtains in the windows" ���������  was  "Why, how did they catch Are?"  "Well, I don't know. I think they  must have caught fire fr'cm the candles."  "What candles? We, haven't any  candles in our house. We use onthing  but electricity and gas."  "I know, sir. But the candles were  all around the coffin"   "The coffin?    Why, who's dead?"  "Oh, nobody but your mother-in-law,  sir." -  "My mother-in-law?"  "Yes, sir."  When a "ring" rules a state, or province, and public_ revenues are diverted into the channels of graft, it is seldom that the public mind is blind to  what~is taking place. Still less is it  possible to imagine that the majority  of citiens approve. They recognize  the situation as an outrage, they are  aware that the remedy is in their own  hands, bufc they leave it alone for the  simple reason that they are too interested in other things to take time to  be good citizens.  The heir to one of the greatest fortunes in the world was recently called  to do grand jury work. At first he  asked to be excused because of the  exactions of private business, but  when it was represented to him that  here -was his' opportunity to aid in  rigiiting an intolerable condition of  affairs, he set aside his own interests  and his own preferences, and undertook the duty. That exhibition of patriotism was an illustration of what  we need in all countries to-day.  Business men who give enough attention to municipal affairs to secure  honest and efficient government, must  make a sacrifice. But patriotism  means a willingnes to sacrifice. You  who are scon to assume the responsibilities of citizenship have ambitions  you mean to carry out, hopes you wish  to realize. But. resolve that in all the  hurry and competition inevitable in  modern business life, you will never  get so crowded as to be unable to forget your country's need.  km  CANAL  ACROSS   SCOTLAND.  The   British   Admiralty   has   taken  action   within   the   past   few   weeks  that gives new life to the ��������� old project j '\  of digging a great canal across Scot-p  land,  connecting  the  Firth  of Forth! tj  with  the   Firth   of  Clyde.    A  small i  barge canal now exists across this j  narrowest* portion of the island, but  the proposal of ,the government is  to lend financial aid to a syndicate  that will undertake to build a ne_*  canal 148 feet wide at bottom, to accommodate the greatest battleships.  Plans and estimates have been made.  The proposed route includes the famous Loch Lomond. It is believed  that such a canal would bo financially  successful while providing strategic  naval advantage for England, as there  is a heavy traffic round the northern  end ,cf the island that would naturally sock this channel. The new route  wo'.ild save 300 miles between London  and Glasgow alone, and would represent an economy of from one to  two days on many steamer routes.���������  Ex.  a  Tl:s proposition is peace.

Within the past century the remarkable industrial  developments have resulted in the establishment of extensive and  congested manufacturing centers, reeking in the fumes from a  thousand furnaces, making the atmosphere poisonous and deathly  to all forms of life, animal and vegetable. As a consequence oC those  conditions we find a rapidly deteriorating race, physically and  mentally, and thus has arisen a desire to abate this nuisance and  relieve to some extent the cause of so much misery and disease.  In Chicago, according to the "Engineering Record," there is to  bo established a number of large central power stations, which will  be equipped to consume soft coal and to supply light, power and  heat to surrounding districts. The following is the report given  in the "Record:"  "Within" its T^neoF^  sumers with power and light in the form of electricity, with fuel  in the form of gas, and with heat in the form of steam or hot water.  By concentrating different classes of equipment and by operating  on a large scale, the cost of service to the consumer should be about  the same as now. .and even if he must pay slightly -more he should  do so with the feeling that a purer atmosphere is worth the additional expenditure. The extra cost would be classed in the same  category as yearly taxes for maintenance of streets, parks. "Water  supplies and sewerage systems. Tlie arrangement suggested would  do away with .small boiler plants, also with the use of coal as a fuel  in households and would necessitate j-he electrification of railroads.  It would practically mean the prohibiting the-use of soft coal by  small consumers.'but before this could be done a better source of  supply for heat, light aud power must be provided, and the only  feasible substitute now apparent would be the central station. The  transition must be gradual, for the ultimate capital requirements  needed for carrying out this idea would be very great. It is only  by a. slow process of displacement of present smoke-producing furnaces that, the central station could come into existence."  MORE U. S.  SCANDALS.  ("Collier's.")  ,  Senator Gore's Charges.  "The Vice-President was named in connection with Indian  frauds by Senator Gore on August 4 before an investigating committee of the House of Representatives. Senator Gore said that he  had been approached at "Washington on May 6 by Jacob Ilamon.  formerly Republican national committeeman from Oklahoma, with  the offer of a bribe of $25,000 to remove Congressional opposition to  the McMurray Indian coal land contracts. He quoted ITamon as  saying that Senator Curtis of Kansas and Representative MeGuire  of Oklahoma were interested in the contracts, lie testified that  ITamon declared that Vice-President Sherman was likewise involved.  He said that Representative Charles E. Creager of Oklahoma had  also been approached.  Of the land contracts Senator Gore said that the McMurray  firm of attorneys were to receive ten per cent, of ������the profit on the  sale of 450.000 *aeres of coal and asphalt lands belonging to the.  Indians. cAs a New York syndicate stood ready to pay .$30,000,000  for the lands, ten per cent, to the Me^Iurrav interest for 'attorneys'  fees' would realize $3,000,000.'  Senator Gore had introduced in the Senat a resolution requiring  that all contracts made with Indians should be approved by Congress before they became valid. Premptory denials have followed  the charges of Senator Gore from Vice-President Sherman, Senator  Curtis, Representative JIcGuire and Hamon."  C. B. C.  o  O  C.B.C.  C.B.C.  . C.B.C.  C.BC.
