No.14  HERE AND THERE  THE EXHIBITION.  The first Vancouver Exhibition bids fair to be a greater success than at first was anticipated. It is stated that, there lias been  more entries received than can be accommodated and that many  I have been refused on those grounds. In a sense it is gratifying to  F think that onr first Exhibition has met with such extensive support,  at the same time it is also a matter for regret that there is not sufficient accommodation for all applications.  (All that is required now is fine weather and the patriotic sup-  , port of the venture by the citizens. It is hard to appreciate the magnitude of the undertaking, and the ;eft'ort required to get it into  shape, but it is certain that the public owe a debt of gratitude to  those eiti/.ens who have worked so assiduously and long to attain  this end, the consummation of which will lie seen during next.week  at the Hastings Park. '  MONOPOLY OBJECTS.  The B. C. Telephone Company has entered an objection to the  proposed erection of the Stave Lake Power Co. 's wires through Bur-  naby and Hastings, on such roads or streets as are already occupied  f^by the B. C. Telephone.,  There would appear to be something more behind this objection  ithan appears upon the surface.   The B. C. Telephone and the B. C.  Electric are "bosom friends."   Their operation do not conflict and  yet are productive of common or mutual interests.   Can it.be that  the B. C. Electric are the real opposers of the Stave Lake Company!  (It is a well known fact that the citizens have been looking forward  to the advent of some competing power company in order that a  abetter and cheaper service might be obtained, and their hopes seem-  ped about to be realized in the Stave Lake Co.   This, of course, would  laffect the B. C. Electric, and would naturally meet with disapproval  Jfrom that quarter.   Then, again, it is the policy of-the B. C. Elec-  fctric to work out its schemes through apparently independent parties, e. g., the $18,000 subsidy to the Ninth avenue west car line, and  also the Richards street line.   In both of which cases emuiissaries of  the company worked out the scheme in the guisfe of disinterested  jitizens. .-.'.. '" ��������� _' ,'   ���������'...  '   :  1 We want "power competition" in Vancouver in the worst way;  ind every encouragement should be extended to the Stave Lake'Conir  >any'or any other company, to get their plant into working order.  Then, again, both the B.C. Telephone and B. C. Electric are  Ihsing the public highways vidthoiit emnpensating the public in any  (way for it. and it ill-behooves them to object to others having the  same privilege as they themselves enjoy.  FALSE CREEK AOAtN.  Mayor Taylor and Aid. Hepburn have returned from Victoria  In thou t the consent of the Provincial Government to the transfer  o the Great Northern of he 130 acres of land in bed of False  Jreek, which he citizens voted away on June 28th last.  It appears that the Government is exercising a paternal care  /er the interests of several owners who claim  to have riparian  |*ghts, which rights have been ignored by the Railway Company.   It  fas evidently the intention of the Company to "bluff" these owners  tit of their rights by holding up to them the prospects of a "Privy  jouncil" law stiit, but the local Government have stated that unless  II these  claims  are  properly  and  equitably  adjusted  that  they  K'll not give their consent to the transfer, and as this is necessary  lefore a deed can be given, and   further as a deed must be in the  lands of the Great Northern before they will consent to turn a sod,  naturally follows that it may be some time yet before the citizens,  |ho voted away that splendid piece of property, Avill see the desired  jyelopments.  "Wer should remember tHarth7i~Great Northern lia  t*om date of commencement" to finish the depot, and they will not  nnmencV'until they have received a deed in fee simple for the whole  {0 acres.   It is stated upon best authority that the Domiuion Gov-  inment has tates< precisely the same position as the Provincial Gov-  nment. so it would appear as if False Creek is still to be a "Prob-  :n."  LORD KITCHENER.  (Standard of Empire.)  "Lord Kitchener is no longer a member of the Imperial Defence  limmittee. This fact was elicited from the Prime Minister while  t was being questioned in the House of Commons regarding the  Institution of the committee. Lord Kitchener, it will be remem-  fred, was appointed a member last year, when he was nominated  ^*the Mediterranean Command.   It is remarkable that Lord Fisher,  Iio is retired, remains on the committee, while Lord Kitchener, on  lorn the country looks as its greatest asset in tlie Army, disap-  ars.   "Was Lord Kitchener removed or did he resign'!"  The foregoing is an editorial by the "Standard of Empire" aud  |ks a very significant question and one in which the whole Empire  ivitally interested.    "VVe-have been looking to Lord Kitchener to  tome the control of the military part of the Imperial program,  ^t apparently the war office think otherwise.  THE MOTOR CRAZE.  "Resolved:   That,the banking fraternity of Oklahoma should  [j������ their power and influence to curtail the tendency of the people  the State toward extravagance and speculation in. real estate  \l  the  prevalent  habit  of  withdrawing  the  funds  they  sadly  ���������d as capital in. their business for investment in motor-cars and  koline."  Tliis resolution was adopted, after careful discussion, by the  lahoma State Bankers'Association.  The problem of extravagant living is one of very-grave 'impor-  Ice.   Every dollar that is diverted to an abnormal indulgence of  ie society "fad" is just so much capital withdrawn from pro-  ,tion uses.  Extravagance was the root cause of the down-fall of "Rome."  'Persia,''  of "Babylon"   and  other  ancient  civilizations.    It  [j also the cause of the French Revolution. It is well to consider  / national habits occasionally, and to call a halt if the pace  io fast. There is no doubt quite sufficient reason for alarm in  tendency which is now generally ^exhibited to "discount the  ire?' and also in the extravagant habits which are being formed  the rising generation.  Last winter at the sessions of Cjpngres at Washington, D. C, the  question of emigration to Canada occupied a very prominent place in  the discussions of the house. Many suggestions were made of  how to check the exodus and also numerous explanations were  advanced regarding the cause of Jtv but about the only result that  can be seen, up to the present, is,to be observed in the frantic  efforts of the Press of the country in publishing misleading statements of the wohle question, in some cases seeking to impress those  who may be contemplating the trip with stories of the "bleak  barrenness of the northern wilds,'' and also spreading broadcast  reports of large numbers returning disgusted with their experience.  The New Orleans "Times-Demoerat" says:  "The American settlers were dissatisfied with the character  of the land, the crops from which they alleged consisted .principally  of alfalfa and such hardy grains as winter wheat, and even these  were not sure. The form of government did not appeal to them,  and they considered the railroad freight rates .exorbitant. The climate was a source of dissatisfaction, ice and snow in August and  September of last year adding to their discontent."  Imagine growing "alfalfa" and "winter wheat" in a country  where they had "snow and ice in August." We admit that there  is something of a winter in the Nor' West, but the above statement  can only be characterized as a ''Lie."  The Louisville "Courier-Journal states:  "But the Canadians neglect jto tell about the streams of disappointed Americans who are leaving Canada and returning to  their own country. . . . '. LiTJred into <-an. alien climate and environment, and virtually compelle'd to renounce allegiance to their  own country, the disappointment '''which has come to many of them  was natural. To a large extent the Canadians have been playing  a confidence game on American fafmers, and the facts are coming to  light."    "��������� .;;:|; ���������.:���������;'���������'-        ,7#7'77''-: ',;������������������;,������������������ ".������������������.;  Again we Say ' ���������' False.'' Thej|greatest advertising medium for  the Nor' West that is in existence today is the farmer who has  settled in Alberta and Saskatchewan and writes back to his friends  in "Indiana." Ohio, and other slates of his splendid success, and  to substantiate this we have the following statement by Cy Warman  in his despatch to the "New York Sun":  "I have yet to find the first ffankee or Scotchman kicking on  the country or the conditions. Tliis statement is the third foolish  and futile attempt to stop the stampede to Canada and meanwhile  Americans from the Middle West are pouring into Canada; one  special train delivered about (}00 settlers at the two-year-old  town,of. Scott, Sask., in a single day last spring, and they were estimated to be worth $10,000 in monev and machinery. They are coming at the rate of about 100,000 aVear, bringing $100,000,000 with  them. ":7 ���������  ^ "Americans dbmiriate the j:\iii7 trade and the. lumber business in the West. The statement is made,' and I have not seen it  contradicted, that two-thirds of the land that has passed from the  Crown in the Canadian West has passed to Americans or American  capital. American merchants and .manufacturers are participating  in this wonderful development."  RECIPROCITY.  ASSAULT ON MAYOR GAYNOR.  The recent attempt to assassinate Mayor Gaynor of New York  was one of the most dastardly actions of modern criminal history.  The misguided wretch who perpetrated the act had beeu discharged  because of incompetancy,*had appealed to the mayor to be reinstated, but had been refused, and because of this", in a fit of mad  hatred, attempted to take the life of the first citizen of New York.  Mayor Gaynor has done more to clean up the civic corruption  of New York than any public man of recent years. It was not  anticipated by the "Moral Reformists" thatrGaynor would attempt  much along the liiie of civic reform, but on the other hand-it was  expected that "graft" and "favoritism" would run rampant- The  direct opposite has, however, been the case and Gaynor has been  instrumental in reforming the civic methods of this great and corrupt city.  Mayor Gaynof has not only been busy setting the c^vic household in order but has interested himself with remarkable success  in matters of publie importance, such as "short weights." etc.  Commissioner Driscoll, an appointee of the mayor's, lias dumped  many wagon-loads of weights and measures which he had found  because of incompetency, had appealed to the mayor to be rein-  to be below standard, into the harbor.  The following extract from tlie "Baltimore Evening Sun" will  show some of the other activities of this-most progressive mayor:  "Mayor Gaynor has also discovered that the butchers of New  York in weighing drest meats count in the wrappings and charge  for them at the full rate for meat On the average Chicago  ham, for example, there is a burlap covering which weighs nearly  half a pound. . It costs the packer three-fourths of a cent, and yet  the consumer has to pay for it at tlie rate of from 22 to 30 cents  a pound. In the same way the public is regularly mulcted for  wrapping-paper, twine, and skewers. According to .Mayor Gaynor's  experts, the people of New York pay $40,000 a year for skewers  alone, buying them as a lamp chop or tenderloin at from 25 to 50  cents a pound.   They cost the butchers about $500 a year.".  It is estimated that the efforts, of'Mayor Gaynor along these  lines in the interests of the consumer will mean a saving to the  citizens of upwards of $5,000,000 per annum. Thi.s is no small  matter and is most meritorious work. The country can ill afford  to lose such men as Gaynor and we sincerely hope that he may  have a speedly .recovery.  EXPLOITING THE  LONDON  MARKET.  "Monetary Times."  The comparative failure cf many  Canadian flotations in London recently  deserves special attention. Too frequently has the nonsueess of new-  security issues been covered by that  glib term, "bad market conditions."  With really good propositions, the  London market does not seem to be  overburdened more than usual. For  poor proposals, is has no appetite  whatever. Further, it is not likely to  have. Except for a pecniar and periodical wild gamble, the British investor  (is thoroughly conservative.   As a rule,  j he carefully analyses    the    proposed  j investment.   In addition, lie has many  | reputable financial journals as guides,  i past which few disreputable compan-  j les can make headway after a close  'scrutiny.    It   would   seem  as  though  the London market is at present being exploited by many highly specula-  rive Canadian enterprises.    The result  is failure for themselves and harm to  others   more   deserving.     The  sooner  it is recognized that London will not  look at our purely speculative securities, the better it will be for, Canadian  credit and the market for the Dominion's securities generally.  Sir Wilfred Laurier has been renewing his promises to the  farmers of the Northwest regarding tariff reform. It would not  require a very great stretch of imagination to make one think they  were back in the days of "1896" wheu "reciprocity" was the7;  Liberal slogan, and "protection" the Conservative war-cry. Thei7:  day has happily passed, however, when either of these extreme ;  views will any longer command the unswerving support of any^  great section of the electorate. Men are learning the lesson gir^d-t  ually, that a "cut and dried" political policy, framed up. by, the^;  "party leaders,'' is not necessarily the best policy, nor is it essen*^  tial to the prosperity of the country. ���������.- ���������\77','-7k.77  Sir Wilfred in 1896 promised "free trade,"' but upon assuming  office he adopted the policy of Sir John A. McDonald which wa������  "protection," and during the past 14 years this policy has been7;  assiduously adhered to. .        .  Now that the Premier is re-visiting the constituencies of the  Northwest his old time, farmer supporters are pestering his life put  With quotations from his speeches of that former trip, and Sir  Wilfred, like.an astute politician, is making new promises of "free 7  trade" or at least a serious investigation by a "Royal Commiirioa"  into the whole subject of tariff reform. '���������>..-  The fact of the matter is that the Premier is altogether too  good a statesman to advocate openly the full policy of"reciprocity''  and "free trade," arid realizes that Canada cannot afford any  such extravagance at this stage of her development.'', 7,  The very similarity in the policies of the two groat parties  is a guarantee that the country is pretty much of a unit oni the  question and that the general opinion leans towards "moderate ;  protection." Up to the present, however, no statesman seems to  have been able to correctly interpret the exact requirements of the. 7  case, and the public have consequently been deprived of a suitable opportunity of expressing their views.  Canada is a country of vast natural resources, raw and un- 7;  developed.   We also have unlimited food supplies;   These two facts U  point to a certain pecnliar future for pur country, viz., that whereyert;  the raw material is to be had in large quantities, there is7bctihd7tp f;  grow up manufactures of various kinds and also to make a7suc-^  cessful manufacturing center you must have an abundant'food ;  supply.   Thus it is reasonable to assume that the time is7npt7farl  distant when the extensive manufacturing industries of the Eastern  States and of Europe will, to some extent, be transferred to Gahada,  and, in place of being as at present, a sparsely settled; country,  we shall have a country thickly populated and the center of great  industrial activities. :' ���������v./:.k:kk:  This particularly applies to certain classes of industriesj such7;  as those lines which use a large quantity of wood in the;'process  of making, and also in regard to the manufacture of paper.   And7  again. Jn, the varimis,..me^als.siieji ������s jstee.1,. uj^kJe^iji^nfift^^^^^i^  deuces can already be noted of this change of manufacturing centers.    Large companies from the  United  States are  establishing  branches in Canada.    Several big old country steel concerns are  now arranging to open up i nthis country in locations contiguous to  the mineral deposits and coal beds.    There are indisputable signs  of the change in the course of industrial events.   It should be the  aim of all governing bodies to so exploit the resources of the country, over which they hold sway, as to develop them to the best advantage for the people as a whole and not for the benefit of any  particular class.    It should  be  clear to  all   impartial Canadian  statesmen that to "throw down the bars" entirely, as far as Canada  was concerned. Mould be tantamount to extending an unqualified  invitation to "Uncle Sam" to invade our territory and extract from  the great natural wealth'of our country that which he requires  so badly to build up the waning industries south of the line.    It  would also mean that European manufacturers, with the advantage of cheap labor, could import raw materials from here arid manufacture them in ^  at a good profit. What we require is a tariff policy whicii will  prohibit the exportation of raw material and will encourage the  establishment in Canada of such industries as will utilize the great  wealth of crude materials which we have in such prodigious quantities. We could very well afford to place ou our "free list" such  articles as cannot possible be manufactured out of the raw material  which we have, such as cotton, silk, rubber, hemp, sugar, tea, coffee,  tropical fruits, etc.. in fact Canada could frame up a very attractive  "free list" as an inducement for better trade relations with, almost  every country of any great importance, without in the slightest  degree jeopardizing her own interest one iota.  The difficulty has been that we foster and subsidize industries  that we could well do withuot and are rapidly dissipating some of  our most valuable- natural resources. In other words tlie manufacturers as a class, irrespective of the usefulness of the industry,  have been pampered hy the authorities, needlessly so. while not  even coKinion-seii.se has been exhibited in developing onr own resources.  The people are now awakening to the great value antf importance of our heritage, and hence the persistent questioning on all  sides as to the requirements of our country. The failure, in the  past, of the "parties" jo adequately deal with this problem points  to the establishment of a- still more democratic form of government:,  than that which we now enjoy, by the introduction of "Direct Legislation." which  would rapidly solve such  intricate problems..  ,v-SV.*.Sfi������P������|A  mmmm  :������������������'���������'������ ;?:'rwfJ!sa  ���������.^'^kaifPmi'  kkk^:f'0($$  ;-S������������^'!

ODLUM  One of the urban marvels of human  history is the City of Vancouver.  Twenty-five years ago this spot was a  mighty forest occupied by giant firs,  cedars, spruce, nemlocks. and smaller  trees of many kinds. Wild animals  and Indians were the point occupants,  and the few white men developing  the lumber trade, planning for the terminus of a splendid railway as the the  Canadian Pacific Railway is, and the  other  pioneers   and  hunters  made  a  small and insignificant showing in the  (face of the herculeean task to be performed  before the present city could  emerge.  But those early men were idealists  and dreamers, such dreamers as the  world at all times has needed and  ever "will need to ensure success.   No  (Continued on page 8) THE WESTERN CAL.L.

We are growing into ablg and perhaps an over-boastful nation; but we  have many things in which we may  feel a pardonable pride. We have  achieved many tremendous results  within a comparatively short time,  and have some right to be proud of  our "big things."   One of the biggest  width, and this arcade will be flanked'  on both sides by shops and booths. At  i the farther end of the arcade one finds  a great restaurant and cafe, and beyond are he general waiting, rooms.  On the first level below the street is  the station proper, and here is the  general waiting room, which is said  to be the largest in the world, as it is  277 by 103 feet in size. Adjoining this  are two other waiting rooms, one for  men, and the other for women, and  each of these rooms is 58 by 100 feet  in size. The baggage room has a  frontage of 4 DO feet, and the baggage  of the achievements of the last decade  may fee seen, in some of the railroad j will be taken away through a special  BtatioM^lrtM^Bffrpa's^  other country in the world.   The latest of the station may be gained from the  of these  enormous  buildings  to  ap- fact that the stone work covers eight  proachr   completion    is  the . Pennsyl- acres of ground, and a total of 550,000  vania Railroad Station in New York [feet of granite has been used, in addi-  City.    This  is  in  some  respects the tion to 27,000 tons of steel and 15,000,-  greatest station  on  the  face  of the, 000 bricks.   The station itself is really  globe* and is regarded as one of the  greatest, triumphs of modern archi  tecture. It is the most imposing in  appearance  of  any    station    in  the  a kind of a monumental and most artistic appearing bridge over the tracks,  with entrances to the street on all  four sides.    In this respect the sta  world, and it can "show the figures" ' tion is unique among the railway sta-  to prove that it is the costliest station on the face of the earth, its entire cost exceeding one hundred millions of dollars. As an engineering  achievement the station and the tunnels leading to it command the admiration of all who see them and appreciate the full scope of the undertaking. When trains are finally running regularly into the station, passengers   will   be   carried   under  New  tions of the world. The trackage  within the station would, if laid in a  straight line, reach sixteen miles. The  platforms adjacent to the trains would  reach in a straight line four miles.  The length of the station is 7S4 feet,  and its width.450 feet. Nearly four  hundred buildings were removed in  order to secure room for the station,  and the ground was acquired at a cost  on the bottom of the west side of the  East River had to be worked out. One  of the experiments tried was that of  freezing the silt before cutting it. A  pilot tunnel seven feet six inches in  diameter was driven in the bed of the  river for a distance of" 1.60 feet. Circulating pipes were laid in it, and  brine at a very low temperature was  passed through the pipes until the  ground was frozen for a distance of  about 11.5 feet around, the tunnel. But  it was found that the shield method!  was working all right, so the unique  idea of freezing the bottom of the bed  of the river was given up. one of the  commendable^ things about this wonderful railway station is the entire  absence of the long and unsightly  train sheds of so many other great  railway stations. In the new Penn  sylvania station all of the train sheds  and tracks are' under ground, and one  sees only the splendid and imposin;  station itself, with its fine Grecian pil  lars. It is one of the most dignified  looking buildings in New York City,  and its completion will witness the triumph of one of the greatest engineer  ing and architectural enterprises the  world has ever known.  ������EMPLOYMENT  I more regular employment.

Referring to the effects of street  trading on those engaged in it, the  report says: "We have come to the  conclusion, after hearing a great deal  of evidence bearing on the point from  many kinds of witnesses, that the effect of street trading upon the character of those who engage in-it is only  too frequently disastrous. The youthful street trader is exposed to many  of the worst of moral risks; he associates With, and acquires the habits  of, the frequenters of the kerbstone  and the gutter. If a matchseller, he  is likely to become a beggar; if a  newspaper seller, a gambler; the evidence  before  us  was  extraordinarily  phasises the obvious danger to health  arising when children, and especially  young girls, often very inadequately  clothed are exposed for long periods  to inclement weather." So far as  girls are concerned, the committee  feel that thee argument in favor of  than diminish in force as the age of  the trader advances. They say that  the entire body of testimony laid before them has forced upon theem the  | conclusion that street trading by girls  is entirely indefensible, and that no  1 system of regulation is sufficient to  rid the employment of its risks and  objections.

As a result of objections taken to the  False Creek proposals by Ross & Howard of this city, through their solicitor,  Mr. Robertson, the application of Mayor Taylor and Alderman Hepburn before the provincial executive in Victoria this week was laid over until  August 19. It was stated by the representative of Ross & Howard that  j the city's proposals were not yet advanced to a stage where the property  "owners of the: lots on-the-north side-  jof Westminster avenue bridge were in  a position to understand the situation.  The owners protested against the acquisition by expropriation of the remaining lots having riparian rights at  the head of the basin.

The Society of Illuminating Engineers in England has lately discussed  the'best means of avoiding glare from  artificial lights. It is beginning to be  recognized that the recent introduction  of intensely 'dazzling points of light  raises problems in the solution of  which the oculist must take a hand.  Two Berlin professors urged in a communication to the society the "advisability of imitating daylight." The  quality of daylight is its diffusion,  whereby the eye is saved from injury.  It has been estimated that the diffused  daylight from a clear sky is about 60  per cent, of the direct daylight. It  is pointed out that injurious effects  of artificial lights are not confined to  the light centers, but arise also from  the glare reflected from the surface  of shining paper and other bright objects.  THE SLAVERY OF DRINK.  The story is told of a group of handsome young men, laughing and drinking In a bar-room, when a poor totter-  ing tramp pushed open the door and  with sad eyes looked at them uppeal-  ingly.  '���������Come in Senator, an drown your  cares in the flowing dowl!" they said  jeeringly. "I will come in, thank you,"  he said, "for I am cold and hungry."  "Take this brandy, Senator," they said |  mockingly, "and drink to our'health."  tramp gazed at them for an instant,  and then, With a dignity and eloquence  that showed how far he had fallen in  social scale, he began to speak.  "Gentlemen," he said, "I wish you  well. You and I complete a picture of  | my life. T was, alas, a Senator. My  bloated face was once as yOung and  handsome as yours. This shambling  figure was once as young and handsome as yours. I, too, once had a  home, and friends, and position. I  had a wife as beautiful as any artist's  dream, and I dropped the priceless j  pearl of honor and respect in the wine  cup, and, Cleopatra-like, saw it disolve  and quaffed it down. I had children  as sweet and lovely as the flowers  of spring and I saw them fade and  die under the curse -of a drunken father. 1 had a home where love lit  the flame upon the altar and ministered before it and put out the holy fire  and darkness and desolation reign in  its stead. I had aspirations and ambitions that soared as high as the  morning star, and I broke and bruised  their beautiful wings, and at last  strangled them, that I might be tortured with their cries no more. Today I.am a husband without a wife, a  father without a child, a tramp without a home, a man .in whom every  good impulse is dead���������all, all swallowed up in the maelstrom of drink.  "Young gentlemen," he said, as he  passed out into the darkness, "whichever way you go���������whether you follow  your mothers,' wives' or children's  prayers and enjoy their love on earth  and dwell with them in Heaven, or  whether you become a saddened soul  forever lost like me���������I, I wish you  well." Tears dimmed the eyes of the  young men as they watched a despairing soul disappear.���������Ex.

A., B.D.,  IN THE CHAIR  To hear D.\ C!2iter's presentation of th;s affecting story is a privilege not soon forgotten and is to become thoroughly acquainted , with  one d������ the most interesting characters ever given to the world.  The scene is laid in France, where, owing to financial depression, the  poorer classes suffer for the necessaries of life. Jean could secure no employment. He could starve himself���������the poor in seme 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 of glass 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 Jean, was arrested and received a heavy sentence, all the  circumstances of the case being considered. From that day Jean started to  harden and all humanity seems to turn its back on him. He tries to escape  several times, but fails, and each time yearn 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  where his jet factory is located. But his chief of police --uspects that Mr.  Mayor is the famous ex-convict. Jean Vai Jean, who escaper from the  clutches of the law. Jean realires he is discovered, and flies, with Javert,  the Chief of Police, in hot pursuit. Jean takes with him Cosette, a little  girl, the daughter of a woman whom he had ofttimes befriended.  To follow the movements of Jean Val Jean, Cosette and Detective Javert.  and mark the various steps by whicii 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 forget.

Sawdust is usually regarded as an  objectionable product because it increases the danger of fire if deposited  near mills or lumber piles and necessitates either cartage with accompanying expense or the construction of a  "burner" and the use of conveyors or  carts to transfer it from the saws.  A double economy, however, is new  in progress. As a result of the use of  band saws ins'end of the old circular  and gang saws, a log that, under the  old "system produced S bean."!?, will  now produce 9, a v?vy substantial  increase in product with a corresponding decrease in the amount cf sawdust produced.  Owing to the chemical and mechanical  properties, it  produces  dynamite.  Used with clay and burned, it produces  a terra-ootta brick full of small cavi-  "ties that, owing to its lightness and its  properties as a non-conductor, makes  excellent -flre-prcof  material .for  partition  walls.    Treating it with  fused  caustic all-tali produces alcohol.   Mixed  1 with a suitable hinder and compressed,  it can be used for making mouldings  ard imitation carvings;   while, if mixed with Portland cement, it produces a  flooring material.    It is an  excellent  i packing   material   for   fragile   articles  ! and for dangerous explosives and can  I be used as packing in walls to make  | them sound-proof and  cold-proof.  r  MANY A MAN  Gets the reputation for  having a sour disposition  when the truth of the mat  ter is that he bus a sour  stomach.

When  the 'maples   stand   a-quiver   in  their frills, of tender green,  And the busy robins'building, in their  branches riiay be seen;  When the dogwoods light the fringes  of the woodland turning gray,  With the buds that swell to bursting  at the airy touch of .May.  And the wheat holds endless riot in the  bladed ranks that run  O'er the hillsides and' the valleys, in  the shadow 'and the sun,  While the la lit is in the clover, and  the criiiison-throated throng  Are pouring all (heir melodies in sweetest strains of song.  c The lindens fling their banners out,  the poplars laugh and play;  And the willows take a glory from the  coming of May,  While the fleecy clouds above us with  trailing shadows pass "  Across the  woven carpet of the soft,  enameled   grass;- .  While  the  killdee  calls  his  mistress  wheie the meadow runnels flow.  Where the cowslips edge the shadows  and the watercresses grow,  While'the marsh-frogs in the hollows.  '  and the blackbirds on the hills  Are alive with all the rapture the heart  ,      of Nature thrills,'  And the "hi aided bow of promise lightens every t a r.d of gloom,  For earth has never gladder time than  'mid "the apple-bloom. .,  .What  airy  grace  of greening  thingv  the' rolling'''landscape fills.

All members'agreed to care for and spray their  orchards as stipulated by the rules of  the Association. Incidentally, too, all  fruit was to be marketed through the  centrai agency. The results have been  little short of phenomenal. The orchard acreage has been largely increased, Norfolk apples are now held  as second to none in the markets of,  the world and the profits have been  most gratifying; As a con sequence,  land values, in the last six years, have  doubled.  And this has been accomplished  mainly by selecting the crop best adapted to the soil. The work that the  Commission of Conservation has undertaken, of classifying lands according  to the character of the soil to determine what crops can most profitably  be grown, is therefore a task of no  small importance. If the Commission  points out the crops that'pay the best  on different soils, both the farmer and  the nation will be the richer for it.  j .,-,-  K-  McQov/en & Salter  ' Phone 4607  y::kkM  2747 WESTMINSTER AVENUE, Near 12th  Richmend Dairy Ice Cream, Butter and Pure Cream  fresh daily.

The amount of the return  depends largely, upon the character  of the land on. which the crop is  grown. One kind of land brings the  greatest return from a. certain, crop:  another piece of land of different qna^  ity would perhaps yield a very small  return if sowed" to the same crop.  Finding out the particular class of  crops the land is best suitf^d to growing is therefore a very important matter for the wide-awake farmer.  A splendid example of what can te  gained   by  the  intelligent  adaptation  of (crops  to  soil   conditions  Is   to  be  found  in  the  county  of  Norfolk,  Ontario.    In certain parts of that county  there are considerable areas of sandv  ��������� (land that cannot hope to compete with  I'llieavier, richer .soils in the growing of  * : wheat and other staple grains.    Thus-,  ������c I farmers who attempted to grow these  X j crops found that their profits were not  j j as satisfactory as might have been de-  l i sired.    Some   years   ago.   however,   a  *? ] few men noted that, the soil  and cli-  <f j mate of the country were well suited  ������������>  to growing fruit, especially apples. The  !

Whoever has folowed the course of  events in Spain with any interest dur-i  ing'.the past forty years must have'  observed that the Church of Rome has  been consistent with its ancient policy  of bitterly opposing all who are striving for civil and religious equality and  when the choice has been between  two parties nearly equally balanced in  the matter of intolerance and bigotry  her lot has been cast with the party  which appeared able to ,master the  strongest battalions. The Inquisition  was established in Spain at the end  of the 14th century; but the one who  gave it complete organization and enforced its requirements was the infamous Domingo Torquemada who was  appointed Inquisitor General in 1483.  In 1697, when Charles II. of Spain  was married to Louise of Orleans a  grand "Auto Cafe" formed part of the  marriage solmnities, and for 14 hours!  the young couple sat and witnessed)  the burning of 23 "heretics." When|  the French under Joseph Bonaparte  entered Madrid in 1808 they abolished  the. Inquisition and the world was hor-  rifled-at what was revealed when the  dungeons of the Inquisition were made  to yield up their secrets. On the restoration of the Bourbons in 1814 the  Inquisition was re-established by the  half imbecile Ferdinand VII. Six  years later (1820) the people of Madrid rose and burned the palace of the  Inquisition which however was not  finally abolished until 1834.  NOTICE.

In 1851 Queen Maria Isabella made  the "Concordat" or agreement with  the Pope for the suppression of heresy  and it was the attempt to enforce the  provisions of this agreement coupled  with her scnadalous life which led to  the revolution of 1868. On the Queen's  abdication a provisional government  was formed, led by men of broad liberal views, chief among whom were  Sagaata, Terrano, Topete and Prim representing the civil, military and naval authorities. In the Spring Of 1869  a measure, was introduced into the  Cortes for the granting a certain  amount of religious liberty. While  this was being discussed a circumstance occurred which materially assisted its passing. It was this: Near  the center of the city of Madrid wa*  a large open plot of ground which rose  toward the center into a high mound,  the whole being overgrown with weeds  and strewed with rubbish. This place  which bore tbe ominous name of "The  burning place of the cross,'was being  excavated for building sites. It was  found to consist of ashes, charred  wood and bones, fragments of old  chain and staples, partially burnt halx.  much of it women's hair, and the soil  when exposed to the heat of the sun  had a horrible oily appearance which  clearly Indicated what it was composed  of. This circumstance was taken ad-  of. This circumstance was taken advantage of by the advocates of toleration, and I well remember how that  one of them, Senor Eschegary, member  for the Basque Provinces, stated in his  speech that during the 350 years in  which the rules of tbe Inquisition were  enforced 2,200 persons consisting of  Christians,7'cJews^an^''~&Ib^amme4aW  were burnt alive at that spot. "And all  was done," exclaimed the fiery young  Spaniard "by the orders of that holy  man���������the Pope." The measure passed  the Cortes' and placed Spanish Protestants in somewhat the same position in which the German Protestants  XAM> ACT.  New Westminster  Land   District.

WESTERN FARMER8 A3 OIL  CON8UMER8.  Extracts from a New York Journal  are beeing qnoted    and    commented  upon, and are of interest now that  oil   propositions   are   numerous    and  several Canadian flotations are being  considered.    The  article referred  to  states   that   the    North-West    Grain  Dealers'   Association    will    consume  between August and the end of December beteween 2% and Z% million gal-  lone   of  gasolene    and    naphtha  in  elevation engines, and the oil engines  for traction  purposes  are  constantly  on the increase throughout the new  West.    The explanation made is .that  coal is scarce and expensive in the  great wheat  belt,    and    that    gang  ploughs carrying from ten to twelve  blades -sach can, by the consumption  of oil, be profitable used.   The writer  of the article states:   "I know of a  Standard   Oil  shipment  of  forty-two  car loads of oil to one town out there  of  from   1,500  to  2,000   inhabitiants.  I Agriculture has become an oil business as well as a land business."  in 1555.  When Amadeus, Duke of Savoy, abdicated the throne of Spain in 1874,  after strenuously endeaVoring for two  years to govern the Spaniards, a republic was proclaimed, and Don Carlos,  father of the present pretender to the  throne, under the sanction and blessing  of the Pope, who four years previously  had been declared infallible, raised insurrection, and spread ruin and desolation through the northern and eastern  provinces. To encourage his soldiers  about 20,000 "scapularies" were distributed in the army and after being  duly "blessed" were sold at 50 cents  each. These "scapularies" consisted  of a square piece of flannel with a  heart embroidered in the center and  the words, supposed to be addressed  to any bullet or bayonet that might  come that way, "Hold! the heart of  Jesus is with me.' This was warranted  to keep the wearer from injury unless (a wise provision this) he was in  mortal sin. After a couple of years  desultory fighting Don Carlos met a  disastrous defeat near Bilboa, and,  judging from the number of his followers wearing "scapularies" who  strewed the .heights of Sommoirastro  there must have been a very considerable number of them in "mortal  sin."  Meanwhile a strong feeling in favor of the son of the deposed queen  had been growing among the people  who were yeary of the state of anarchy into which the country was  plunged and the infallible pope with-  Your Patronage cordially solicited.

Don Carlos, after some more desultory fighting, retired in disgust, but  what became of the remaining "scapu-  lories never transpired. Now his son,  Don Jaime, with the blessing of the  Church, again transferred to his  branch of the family, is trying to  overturn the government of Alphpnso  XIII and there may be a new issue of  "scapularies," but all lovers of liberty  of conscience will watch the progress  of the struggle with intense interest,  THE ADVANTAGE OF POVERTi  It was not the intention of the ofl  boy to be smart, and luckily for-  his "employer did not take his ansl  as smart.

Partridge.  . Of air American poets, with the single exception of Longfelow, 'Whittier  has been the most beloved and most  popular. It is said that-Whittier has  done as much for the scenery of New  England as Walter Scott did for Scotland. Many of his poems, such .as  "Telling the Bees," are as fine as any  in the English language. Did this  great man in youth have a "pu'.l"?  Was he born with a silver spoon in his  mouth? How dees-it come to pass  that his name resounds around the  world, wherever the English language  is read or translated? The purity of  his soul as a boy gave him a vision.  John Greenleaf Whlttier was a farmer's boy. His father had a little farm  in the hamlet of Haverhill, Mass.  Haverhill was at that time a little  farming village. The farm was small  and poor, and there was a struggle to  make.a living. The little farm was  burdened with debt. His parents had  no spare money, and had to practice  the most rigid economy. The boy's  first duties were those of a farmer's  boy, driving the cattle to and from  pasture, riding to mill, fetching in  wood for the "undying kitchen fire,"  "and helping in. the labors of haying  and harvest. There were potatoes to  plant arid to7digi arid a vegetable gar  den to weed, and hundreds of little  duties about the house, and the farm,  and the barn. His school was for only  twelve weeks' in a year���������in the 'depth,  of winter���������and-s-half a mile distant.  Besides working ;on the farm, this  noble country boy helped his hardworking mother, who not only did her  own.housework, but also did the spinning and ���������sveaving of the linen and wol-  en cloth out of which the clothes of  the family were made. This boy did  not have stylish clothing, but he dressed in "homespun," and his mctherc,was  his tailor. His parents were Friends,  and the boy used to drive to the  Friends' Meeting house for worship on  Sunday at Amesbury, which was eight  miles away. The boy loved nature,  and this helped in giving him a puie  heart and a healthy mind. He loved  to -wander in the woods, and study the  flowers and the bh ds and wild animals, and climb Job's Hill, which rose  abruptly from the brnok which rippled down at the foot of their garden.  He had intimate communion with  Mother Earth and with Nature, and as  a boy gained that intimacy with country life which, gave, in later life, that  exquisite charm to many of his poems,  and especially to his 'Snow Bound."  This boy did not have any bad books  to read, for there were only about  twenty books in the house, arid riips.t  he would walk miles to borrow u.  This poor boy was handicaped in  life by poor health. JTe was never robust in health. He had a sensitive  and nervous tenr.erament. and in  early boyhood suffered from pain in  his head, which he never outgrew.  Later in life lie was not able to read  or write for more than half an hour  at a time, and often i.ut so long. His  father and mother dressed in the peculiar garb of the Fiiends. A farm  hand taught him shce-makirg in boyhood, and by this trade he earned  enough money to pay his expenses in  Haverhill Academy for six months in  1827. He taught a district school the  following winter. In this way he  enough to atend the academy for another six months. Such a boy appre*  ciates an education, for he has made  the sacrifices and knows what an education costs. The boy lived a simple  life. The moral and spiritual elements,;  in him were strong. He had purity ot  heart and humility of mind, and in his  nineteenth year he began to -write  some of his famous poems. The ambition to become a poet was awakened  in him when he was in his fourteenth  year, by a copy of Robert Burns'  poems falling into his hands. When,  his father died, he carried on the farm'  for five years. He continued to send'  forth his beautiful lyi ics, and his popu-.  of them were the journals of pioneer Parity  increased  all  over  the   world,  ministers.

Hence the present most excellent Exhibition, where are converged much of  the best this continent can produce.  The few have become the many, and  lo! the citizens are proud, and Vancouver covers herself with glory.  As with the Vancouver Exhibition  Association, so with the Horse Show,  one of the most successful on the big  round earth. So now is the promise  of our National Apple Show. Already  Canada has beaten all other countries  in the contests at the various world exhibitions of apples. British Columbia  has beaten the rest of Canada in this  competition.  Everything  of   permanent value   in  the   hills,   mountains;   in   the  valleys.

IThe railways are here and coming.  Think of it!   and then answer those  ��������� who ask concerning our city:  "What is  !to keep it up?"    Tell them the Canadian Pacific Railway Co., the Great  Northern, the Grand Trunk Pacific and  other railways are a most valuable part  of this future of which I. am speaking.  Then there are the steamboat transoceanic lines, the coast lines, tlie river boats, and the multitudinous small  fleet. Every kind of water-craft- imaginable from scows and barges up to  pleasure craift and the gigantic ocean  liners, will be seen multiplying in our  harbor, even more rapidly than in the  past. Warehouses,( docks, transfer  companies, and all the many land collaterals of an ocean trade, are increasing in a manner to surprise and satisfy  the most impatient.  There is room for scores of factories  not yet even represented in- the city.  In past letters to the press I have mentioned many of these in detail, and at  a later date shall again refer to them.  And by the active aid ot the Tourist Association which is doing a good  work and the business-like co-operation  of the Board of Trade, the Stock Exchange, the Central Executive of the  Ratepayers Association, and other bodies, much help may be given by which  these factories can be located in our  city. If they do not come here, they  will go to Westminster, Victoria and  other centers. Just as Westminster  defeats Vancouver in lacrosse will she  beat Vancouver in the location of factories, in case the Terminal City is  bound to sleep, thinking she is eo big  that the industries are sure to come  without any move on the part of the  city. Westminster has a splendid body  of business men who know what they  need aud how to secure that very  thing.  But Vancouver is only nedcling and  snoozing for a little while. Already  she is yawning, and showing signs of  arousing herself to fresh action. When  she does settle down to real work then  something will be undertaken and carried to a successful issue.  The future of all British Columbia in  general, and Vancouver in particular,  is very bright. The men and women  who are somewhat anxious as to the  near time coming need not be afraid.  Our growth and steady increase for  the past twenty-five years will be surpassed during the coming century-  Properties in the center of the city,  in the outer parts and in the inner  fringe of the annexed portions or districts will double in our time, even  inside of the twenty years next to hand.  jWe can and shall make our city the  best in Canda before we quit, and make  it a joy to behold and a comfort, in  which to live. Let us go at our task  afresh.  AN UNGALLANT TOAST.
