Array ^  ARE YOU ON OUR LIST?  NO ! WHY ?  SUBSCRIPTION $1 A YEAR  .    IN ADVANCE  Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province  VOLUME II  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, SEPT. 2     1910.  No. 17  HERE AND THERE  TELEPHONE POLES VS. CONDUITS.  A most extraordinarv recommendation was contained in the  Board of Works report to the,City Council at: last Monday's meeting, viz.: That "the Ii. C. Telephone Company be granted the privilege to erect a complete system of pole construction throughout  that district hounded hy Hastings and Pacific streets, and by Beafcty  street and Granville street."  ~" This clause was. on motion of Aid. Stevens, referred back to  the Board of Works. Iu doing so. the alderman pointed out that  it' the H. C Telephone were authorized to place a pole system in  this district the city would be tied for 20 years, or the lifetime of  the poles, and that" a conduit- system would be out of the question  tor many years to come. Ln his opinion, that district should all be  served through conduits. He also reminded the Council that during the past month the city had been forced to pay .+1,500.00 to  move two old and dangerous poles on Granville street, and this  charge was forced upon the city by the fact that some past Council  had granted permission to erect these poles, and yet in spite of this  experience the present Council were about to grant a privilege to  the Company which would place the city in a still worse position.  On this motion the matter was referred back, and it is expected  that there will be a serious effort on the part of the company to  'force  this concession,  but they will meet with  strong opposition  from the alderman from Ward V.  BROADWAY EAST.  The residents of East Ward V. will be pleased to know that.  through the efforts of Aldermen Whitesides and Stevens.1 the IS. C.  Electric have agreed to complete the grading and also to lay a temporary track this year, to be running by November 1st, and to  lay a'permanent track next year when the paving of the street is  being done.      ��������� " >.  There has been a dispute "between the B. C. Electric, and the  city regarding Broadway East, the company having refused to proceed with the works unless it was agreed on the part of the city  and the property owners, that ;no paving Would be undertaken  within two years. The company maintained that the cost of laying an ordinary track this year, only to be removed next year.  would mean a great loss to the company. This was quite true, and  the company should not be asked to do it. but it was shown to the  satisfactionof Mr. Glover, the -.manager., that the present construe-'  -tion track could be placed in ii safe condition.'at a moderate cost.  and the overhead wiring would have to be done in any ease, and  further that single track would do until the street was paved next  reason, and that this same track would be almost necessary to bring  in the construction material next year; so, on the whole, the cost  to the company would be but a trifle. This view of the matter met  ���������with the approval of Mr. Glover, who has consented to proceed and  assured the delegation that the cars would be running by November first.  This arrangement will be very gratifying to those living in that  district,*as it will ensure early construction of, a permanent pavement, which is very necessary in this section. :  CONSERVATION OF WATER SUPPLY.  On  the suggestion of Fire Warden Gladwin,  a   meeting  was  ���������called by the City Council, of representatives from the surrounding  municipalities, which met at the City Hall on Thursday evening.  ��������� On calling the meeting to order,  Mayor Taylor read a  letter  rfroni Mr. Gladwin, suggesting that as far as possible those municipalities interested should secure  all the  land  and timber on  the  Capilano and Seymour watersheds, and make them into a reserve.  He pointed out the  irreparable  damage already  done by.careless  -"campers in lighting fires, "andSuggested that proper entrances be  ^arranged and all who enter the reserve be compelled to-surrender  all matches and to register their names.   This is done by the Ameri-  1 can government at the Yellowstone Bark.  ) Mayor Taylor briefly pointed to the necessity of some action  ibeing taken iii this matter, and then* opened the question for discussion. Several present; spoke as to the advisability of action, and  \Keeve Pound suggested that a sub-committee be appointed.  [��������������������������� Aid. Stevens then introduced a resolution as follows: "That  lthe City Clerk be instructed to ascertain what lands had Iieen ali'en-  lated on the Seymour, Capilano and Lynn Creeks, and what, was the  lexact condition of the titles to the same. That the private owners  The approached as to the conditions surrounding their timber hold-  Lings. And that the Provincial Government be interviewed and their  Jviews be ascertained as to exchanging timber at present under re-  Iserve for the timber holdings on these creeks.  t        "And that a committee, consisting of the Mayors and Beeves  fljpf the districts interested, be appointed to attend to the matter."  \        Aid. McTaggart seconded the motion, which was carried uiiani-  nnously.  m During the discussion which preceded the putting op tin' mo-  liion, it was clearly shown that unless some action was taken our  llwater supply was threatened, and, the foregoing resolution was ac-  [[.cepted as a good basis to work from. It was also stated that no  [fdoubt the owners of timber in those valleys Avould deal reasonably  (with the committee, recognizing the importance of the project, and  tit was felt that these owners would be willing to deal with the Pro-.  lVincial Government for exchange of timber if an equitable adjust-  jinent of location, and cruise were made.  h The matter will be prosecuted with vigor, according to the  Statements of Mayor Taylor, Avho is very enthusiastic on the (pies-  Lion.  THE SMOKE NUISANCE.  Representing nineteen of the foremost towns in Great Britain.  h deputation has submitted a memorial to John Burns, in which is  [)et forth a series of facts showing up the evils of smoke.    Among  [Jhese are the indirect results of a smoky and foggy atmosphere,  Much as a. temperamental depression finding relief in drinking, bet-  iing and other forms of vicious excitement, and windows perman-  itly  closed against  permanent smuts.     Eighty  per   cent,  of  the  l/opulation lives in this atmosphere of fog and soot.    These indirect  Jesuits are not imaginary scares.   A. week's fog during a sold spell  h GIasgow# sent up the death rate from 13.5 to 32.5 a thousand,  inly London and seven large towns have so far given the matter  IIlt'ious consideration.   In the years 3903 and 1904 these seven provincial .authorities instituted 2.181 prosecution's for causing a smoke  /uisance, while the other 102 leading towns instituted 161 between  lem.  We have frequently pointed out, in these columns, that the modern tendency to centralize commercial interests in the form of large  corporations has created a serious demand, or more correctly, an  imperative need, for a code of morals adaptable to the changed conditions or systems.  Men are, on the whole, fairly moral in their personal lives. The  inclination of the age is antagonistic to personal vice. But through  the instrumentality of the corporation men will commit deeds which  they would scorn to do as an individual.  Through the medium of a board of directors or a sub-official,  men will participate in actions which if done hy an individual would  be catalogued as a crime. There are those who would scorn to steal  personally, yet who persistently defraud tlieir-fellow-citizens out of  large sums which are justly theirs. There are, again, those who  Avould sooner lose their right hand than compromise their honor hy.  lying, yet who assiduously circulate false and misleading statements  in order to secure for their corporation or company some undeserved  advantage.  Recently Ave had a statement, most earnestly circulated With  all the protestations of a solemn truth, to the effect that all the  American railroads were running at a loss, and unless the freight  rate were raised it would result in the greatest financial disaster of  the age. This was no idle newspaper report, but the solemn statement of the leading railroad men of the continent, officially delivered to the President of the United States. The appeal was almost  pathetic in its terms, and it Avas suggested hy these same men that  there were only tAvo ways in which disaster could be avoided, first  by "increased freight rates.'' or second, by "reducing wages." And  from many quarters came the demand that the latter course be pursued. ,       ���������  Now. as an illustration of the truthfulness of these statements,  we will quote a feAV figures.  The C; P. R. has just closed the most successful .year of its operation.   The NET earnings, for the year ending June 30; 1910. were  $33,840,000, an increase of net earnings of $10,884,000.    These figures have a dual significance, in the first place they are a.direct contradiction of the statements of the railroad magnates,'and.conclusive-  proof that these same statements Avex-e absolutely unfounded and  simply made iu order,to "bluff" the people into accepting a higher  freight tariff.   Tu the second place, these figures warrant the Dominion authorities in bringing to an end the extraordinary privileges eujoyed.by the CP. R. by virtue of its charter^ which privileges Ave re to obtain until the company earned 10 per cent, on its  capital.   The present earnings amount to about 12 per cent., but the  company escape the penalty aud thus deprive the people of large  sums, by simply paying 8 per cent.    The subterfuge is so glaring  that it is a Avonder the matter has not been made the subject of political controversy long since:   in any case, it is a good illustration  of Iioav a corporation may-with impunity rob the people of their  heritage.  Another direct contradiction of the statements of the railroads  's found in the annual statement of the Great Northern, as shoAvn  in detail in our financial column. It is a record year for the company. shoAving an increase in earnings of about $8,870,000. The  net income to be applied on stock amounts to $20,125,000, or the  equivalent of 9.5 per cent, on its capital of $210,000,000. or an excess of $5,425,000 over and above the 7 per cent, dividend. ��������� Last  year the road, earned 8.3 per cent.  Other roads sIioav a similar healthy condition, and yet in face  of these conditions, these men have solemnly stated that they could  not make the roads pay.  It is this practice of deliberate corporation lying and deceit  that Ave Avish to condemn.. We maintain that men Avho Avill make  such statements to secure material advantages are worse than the  .common, liar and sneak.thief. And, further,, those avIio -connive at-  such practices are equally guilty.  There is a growing need for a code of morals and honor that,  will include iii its recognition all. forms of deceit and dishonesty.  Public condemnation is perhaps the most potent form of reproof,  and feAV men Avill face the indignation of an aroused public sentiment. The time Avill come Avhen the great musses of the people will  protest against such forms of immorality and then we may hope to  see some remedy.  COLLINGWOOD SCHRIEBER AGAIN.  Last: Aveek we commented upon >the absurd suggestion of Mr.  Collingwood Schrieber to import hordes of Oriental laborers to complete the G. T. P. This week we are called upon to comment, upon  another hysterical statement made by this "inaliguor of the West."  lie is credited Avith stating that "the reason that laborers cannot  be obtained to work on the G. T. P. is because Vancouver is jealous  of Prince Rupert and discourages all avIio attempt to go there."  There is only one way to treat such a'creature, and that is lo  apply the slipper to that portion of his anatomy whore it will be  most effective, lie is not a tiuuj. lie could not be aud make such  idiotic statements as the above. 1.1 is impossible to conceive of a  person, who has arrived at mature years, making such assertions.  Yet this fellow, having the physical appearance of a man. and holding a position which is supposed to be a man's place. Avill dare to  so malign these t.Avo coast cities Avithout the vestige of reason for it.  It is just such conceited pups as this that often precipitate differences betAveen individuals and communities Avhich othenvise Avould  have pursued a perfectly amicable course.  Such felloAvs iu this Avestern- country soon find themselves occupying a cell iu the asvlum. or else returned to the elf etc East,  labelled "Not Wanted."  If his Oriental propensities qualified him for "suppression."  as suggested last Aveek by the leading Liberal organ, then this last  eruption of his Aveakmind furnishes all the requisite qualifications  for admission to a home for incurable imbeciles.  THE SAFEST PLACE IN THE WORLD.  It has been asserted that the safest place in the Avorld is a seat  in a British railway carriage. There Avould appear to lie much in  the boast, judging by the official record of accidents on the raii-  Avays of the United Kingdom during 1909. Only one passenger avhs  killed by an accident to a train in Avhich he v'as travelling. Further, this Avas the first such death for a period of twenty months.  There Avere 390 non-fatal accidents. During the year 1.264.800.000  passenger journeys Avere made, with but one fatal accident. The  proportion of passengers injured Avas one in 3.200.000.  OF INTEREST TO ALL  TRAM CARS IN PARK.  There has been considerable discussion of the question of a  tram car around the Park. Much has been said pro and con. The  Park Board have decided to refuse a franchise to a company to construct a line around the Park, on the grounds that if a tram line is  built it should be under the direct control of the city.  There are those who oppose a tram invading Stanley Park because they view it as a private reserve. In fact, they object just  as strongly to women and children, or any of the commonality, using  the Park on the same grounds. They seem to think, in factA that  Providence created that Park for their especial benefit. With such  Ave have not patience.  Others go to the opposite extreme and advocate the interlacing  of the whole Park with cheap tram lines.  Commissioner Oavchs seems to have the most equitable conception of the situation, for while he desires to retain the natural beauty of this great public heritage, yet he would make it accessible to ,  the poorer citizens by a system of auto trains. He claims that by  this means cheap transportation could be supplied to all portions of  the Park, aud at the same time the unsightly wiring and equipment  of the average tram line Avould be avoided.  There are two things which should be kept carefully in mind  Avhen discussing the.exploitation of this beauty spot.  First, that the chief value of Stanley Park lies in its sylvan  beauty, in the complete transformation in surroundings to that of  a crowded city, in its pure, fragrant atmosphere and gentle sea  breezes.  Secondly, that this is the heritage of the people, and all have  an equal right to enjoy it. There is no rich and poor with-Providence. All children of men have the right to revei in the bounties  of Nature.  Noav it should be the endeavor of all to jealously preseiwe the  former, but also to expedite tbe latter. Com. Owens' scheme seems  to fill the bill nicely. An "auto train," or as many as are needed,  could'convey all Avho wished to reach the different points of interest, without .defacing the natural beauty of the Park. It would be  cheap and convenient, and in winter months could be laid up. In  this way no one need be denied their birthright.  RECREATION GROUNDS.  Another splendid suggestion lies to the credit of Com. OAvens,  viz. r.7.that>the..,,causew'^ be made solid and  that AArhich is now a mud-flat at low tide, at the head of the harbor,  be filled in and made into a large recreation park.  This is a splendid suggestion, and -worthy of hearty support.  We have not at present a decent recreation park in the city. This  piece of ground is Avell suited for the purpose and would-make an  ideal site. It. is capable of having a running track a mile long, and  is naturally suited to the construction of an immense open amphitheatre, Avhich is much needed here.  C. N. R. LINER'S RECORD.  The Canadian Northern Raihvay Company announce that the  Royal EdAvard. belonging to their Royal line of Atlantic steamships,  has .just made the fastest passage ever performed from Canada to  England. The Royal Edward left Riinouski on the St. LaAvrence,  where she took on a large number of mails at 2:1.5 p. m., on Friday  last Aveek. and arrived at Bristol after a passage of five days, 18%  hours. She also achieved a "record" for the land-to-Iand passage,  her time being only three days. 20 hours. Passengers and mails arrived in Loudon soon after middav on Thursdav. Julv 28.  DR.CLEAVER AND METHODISM. _,      _ ���������      _.  In a resolution at the Methodist conference at Victoria. Dr.  Cleaver sought to effectually silence Dr. Jackson and all Avho dared  to think independent of the authorities of the church.  In his resolution Dr. Cleaver extracts from the context certain phrases from the books of Dr. .Jackson and makes them the  basis of his attack. One quotation reads: "A man may not do violence to his intellectual conscience at the bidding of any authority,  however august, and such an appeal can accomplish nothing unless  it he to discredit the authority itself." To Dr. Cleaver and his colleagues this is rank heresy, and "unselfling and injurious to character." To liie average thinking mind it appeals as common sense.  Dr. Cleaver Avould have all students and laymen give their intellects aud consciences into the professional keeping of the clergy  and refrain .from independent thinking. Such a course would have  been alright in the "dark ages." but not in this enlightened age,  when tiieii have formed the obnoxious habit of thinking for themselves.  Another very offensive passage to Dr. Cleaver is: "The early  chapters of Genesis jire not history, and liiey are not science-, they  contain nn account of the real beginnings, either of the earth itself  or ef man and human civilization upon it." In this passage Dr.  ���������Jackson is pointing out that the Book of Genesis is not to be taken  as a text book- on science or as a treatise on the history of human  civilization, but rather-as a religions allegory, a beautiful pictorial  account of  the  early  stages  of human   history.  Dr. Cleaver and his whole school never allow arty connection  of .science and the Bibb*, so it. is hard to eonceivo why he picked  this passage to be held up as. a sample of the fearful heresy of Dr.  Jackson.  Other quotations are equally absurd, and really only show that  Dr. Jackson takes a thoughtful view of all such questions and has  not. like Dr. Cleaver, stopped thinking at  the age of twenty-five.  There are men avIio prepared a set of sermons when they left  college and have been preaching Ihe same series ever since, and such  men usually are ready to attack any independent thinker who introduces new matter for thought.  jit is refreshing to know that Dr. Jackson is heartily supported  by many of the keenest and most cultured men of the .Methodist  connection. Among those who warmly supported him was the venerable Chancellor Burwash. avIio is revered and loved by ali who  know him. N. AY. RoavcII. the brilliant Toronto laAvyer. in a sane  but clever speech, strongly supported Dr. Jackson. Dr. Chown. the  general superintendent, is also friendly disposed toward him. as is  Dr. Graham, the genera! secretary of education, and many others'  If. was finally decided to leave the question of Dr. Jackson  and his teaching to a special committee. Avhich will thoroughly examine into the charges made. It is generally conceded that the  advanced thinkers have Avon a victory in this respect, and that the  result Avill be a great impetus to modern theological thought. THE WESTERN CALL, VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA.
500D  DCG  FOP. THE COUNTRY.
The Airedale terrier is one of the
latest arrivals in the dog world, antedating the Boston terrier hy only about
ten years. It is the largest of all the
terriers, so big, in fact, that many
English breeders at first refused to
consider him a terrier, claiming that
a dog which weighed forty-five or fifty
pounds must necessarily lack some of
the distinguishing traits of that keen
and nimble family.
The Yorkshire working men who originated him, however, knew what they
were about. Out of Ihe original combination of otter hound, bull terrier,
Yorkshire terrier and other species,
they evolved an entirely new type. By
judicious crossing and careful selection they "fixed" this type. They were
not so particular about the appearance
as about the nature of the animal.
What they wanted was a good "pal,"
a dog big enough to take care of himself, yet loo dignified to hunt for trouble; one with a zest for any sport, that
could work in the water as well as on
land. Moreover, they wanted a dog
that would stick loyally to his master,
and not show any irritating disposition
to welcome every one with indiscrku-
inating affection.
The Airedale is distinctly a one-man
dog. He is not ill-tempered, however.
In a quiet way he is very affection ale,
and his manners are gentle. But all
his   affection  is   concentrated   on   his
' I
���;ii.';f.--'--r. For hi in ihe Airedrih- v
dr.ro ar.yt;:in��. Toward ii.e rest of
the world he maintains that characteristic attitude of reserve which sets
him apart from other dogs.
He has the courage of a lion when
roused and the fighting skill of a wolf,
but he is a gentleman. He will not
fight unless He has to; then his opponent must look to himself, however
big or strong he may be.
The Airedale owes much of his popularity to his adaptability to every
���and of sport, but he is more than a
mere sporting dog. He can easily be
taught to drive cattle like a collie.
He is an' excellent watch-dog, alert,
f'.e'.enraieil, but not noisy. He will do
his best to rid a farm of every form
of vermin. He is docile and obedient
to a. remarkable degree, and fond of
children. His constitution is so hardy
that he can stand a great amount of
I rough work and weather.. Altogether,
those who know him agree that he is
one of the most useful dogs living,
with an  individuality all his own.

Some idea of the value of this ground may be had when it is., remembered that similar
ground in other of California's fields, which could be bought for a few dollars per acre a
few months ago. has since advanced to $2,000. $3,000 and even $5,000 per acre. It therefore would not be surprising if this land should go to $1,000 or more per acre in a like
short period, especially considering the high quality of the oil existing in the'district.
The history of the famous Midway gusher field seorus sure to be duplicated here. Heavy
financial interests are rushing in, and Standard derricks are springing up in a night. Geological conditions are perfect for a strong and permanent field.

WhatEilis MaHery, Eminent Geologist, hed to say about the field Before the
Chancer ot Mines, as quoted by the Los Rngeles Herald
Special to The Herald.
BARSTOW, Cal., July 27.���Ellis Mnllery, eminent geologist and authority ou the oil
i deposits oi! California, addressed the Chamber of Mines on the resources of the- Inter-
Mountain region, and his discourse was warmly appreciated by a full house of the
Chamber members.
Particular interest was taken in -his reference to tlie Barstow Oil Feld, whicii he
designated as one of the most promising regions of this state.
"In speaking of the Barstow region,'"'said Mr. Mallery, ������my statements are based
upon knowledge .acquired from several trips of investigation made during the past year
and a half.
"Broadly speaking, the rocks making up the productive oil series of this state are
no different in the Barstow Field from those of other fields at present developed.
"Th necessary shales, the result of a once prolific organic lit', that make oil accumulations possible, here exist, and interbedded with the shales are sand strata, both
coherent and incoherent, which, coupled with the overlying and underlying beds of
like character, form the required reservoirs for the storage of oil.
"The reservoir sands range from fine grained to coarse couglomeritic layers, and
to discover these stored accumulations is only a matter of knowledge and capital.
"In short, the field under discussion possesses great merit, and I have no hesitancy
in saying that men of means can devote their energies and resources toward its development with the assurance they will reap most satisfactorily for their effort."
Mr. Mallory is in Vancouver for a few days visiting relatives and friends, and can be

Mohammedanism, like Christianity,
has its sects, and a very strong and
thriving one is that known as Babism,
from its founder, or Bahaism, from its
present-day prophet. One-third of the
people of Persia are said to be Baha-
ists, besides great numbers in India,
.Morocco and China. In many essentials of doctrine and :n manner of life
they remain Moslems, but they accept
Mirza Ali Mohammed, who was called
the Bab, as a greater prophet than
Mohammed himse'.f. The religion he
taught before his execution sixty years
ago, as a rebel against constituted
authority, is much more liberal than
orthodox -Islamism: His modern- successor, the Baha llllah, pleads for
universal peace and national arbitration, for a universal language, for
thorough education of boys and girls
alike, for abstinence from liquors and
drugs, for a law of kindness to the

There are ro priests of Bahaism; those
who fpnrli the religion support themselves by other means. Celibacy and
polygamy are alike condemned, and
what amounts to Oiienta eves to ihe

of the Young Turks, cannot, but have
a sre��t effect in -broadening the Mo-

0An attempt has recently been made;|  CCT, 7!Sl AVE. M$ COLUMBIA ST.   t\
to improve the unscientific methods
employed at the celebrated pearl fisheries of Ceylou by the use of the X-
ray. The divers bring up as many of
the pearl oysters as they can hastily
grasp during an immersion which can
not exceed a minute in length. Only
a few of the oysters contain pearls,
but all are opened aud destroyed in
the search. The new method consists in examining the oysters with
the X-ray, which readily detects the
existence of pearls within. If the
radiographs show no pearls, the oysters are rtumed to the .water- uninjured. In the process of examination the oysters are placed on a rolling frame, which carries them in succession under the rays. It is claimed
that this method will result in preventing the destruction of great numbers of oysters which eventually may
produce pearls. It is also more hygienic than the old process of universal destruction.

Mr. McAllister is  re.p.dv  in  his new  store with  a  complete line of ladies'  Drug ! boots and shoes and gents' furnishing.  * * X  NEW RESTAURANT.  A new restaurant Iras stai'tod in  Mt. Pleasant and .apparently ;lmve a  good start, all tables being filled at  noon the first day. The management  are to be complimented on their opening. This makes two stores of the  McAllister block now occupied.  So far as appears clearly manifest,  Mr. Trotter stands in the way of im  niigrtitiop. into Canada, not only from  the Orient but also from Great Britain and ihe continent of Europe. He  seems afraid of competition on the  >art" of those coming from abroad.  Tho workmen in Canada from the  British Isles are very numerous, and  are ?.s careful to guard the interests of our workmen as is Mr. Trot-  'er. As rapidly as these men come  to  Onnada  from  the  Oh  WOMAN'S YOTc!  Slowly but surely it is coining! At  last the "Lords of Creation" have condescended to discuss the question a  trifle more seriously. The Conciliation Bill passed its second reading  and carried by a majority of 110 in a  House of 4S9. The Bill, however, enfranchises only one million women,  but it is an auger of better things tc  come. "What good will it do, the  woman's vote?" asks man disdainfully.  We answer by a brief statement of  what it has eigne in New Zealand,  quoted by W. P. Stead of England.  ' Some of the humanitarian enactments passed since women were einan-  c'pated i:i New Zealand:  Equal   pay   for   equal   work   in   the  Factory  Act.  'Equal treatment, of husband and  vife  in   divorce.  Economic partnership of man and  vife in municipal franchise.  Law against white slave frame.  Legislation of adoption of children.  A.ct for protection of infant life.  Act protecting interest and health of  for all who will come   work girls.  they   come:   nnd   ?'j    Legitimising of children-born before  Land, they,  if able. ?ret work readily at good wa-  <?es. And they make as good citizens  ns those .already in the country.  Mr. Trotter and those for whom  he sneaks officially, iare making a  most serious mistake in- raising barriers against the influx of our British  kinsmen from the British Isles and  ijie Antipodes. There is room for  'hem in Canada:  nnd   as  fast   as  too.    There is  )  am-' i  -vood living wages, .........    ....... ... ..-..- ^  pie room in Canada for the en'i'-o>  oopulation of G'-ent Britain ard Am-  tralasia. Should they pour into this  country at the rate of half a million,  or a million a year. Canada could and  would take care of them economically with the greatest ease.  I see that Mr. Trotter is represented as condemning the officers of the  Salvation Army, for the splendid, noble, humane and Christian work that  body  is  doing   in  aiding, immigration  ihe  officials   to  uses  such  into our Dominion. He is represented as calling them liars, and other  names. The reading community are  very likely to silently transfei  epithets from the Army  the man who so unjustly  terms.       ��������� ���������      -  There is a large body of workmen  who are strenuously arrayed against  the incoming of our kinsmen, because they wish to keep the way open  for European immigrants; and especially for those of the southern countries. This is part of the machinery  of the ' skilled masters of those who  find ready tools of those whom they  quietly welcome to Canada, while they  do all in -their power to keep out the  higher class Britons who would help  to keep Canada British. And willfully  or  ignorantly,   Mr.  Trotter  is  larnage.  Equal rights in  technical schools.  The above speaks for Itself and the  need for reform along similar lines  in our own country and empire is  self-evident. And all just ard unpre  iudiced men who fake the trouble tc  see will recognize the truth.  TOMODACHI.  MT.  THE  PLEASANT     KINDERGARTEN  MAS RE-OPENED FOR THE FAL1  TERM IN THE ROOMS .OF ST.

The more strict are the terms of  immigration, the more are the limitations against our kinsmen, and the  more easily can come in the tools of  the aforesaid masters who are ruling  Canada at the present moment. Englishmen are thrown into prison or  chased back to the Old Land, while  the lowest of the low, the offscourirg  of Southern Europe, are readily received.  As there is room in Canada for  many millions, yes, for a hundred  millions, Mr. Trotter and his co-work  ers would do well to aid in a wise  selection of those desiring to come  to this great land of unlimited wealth  and potentialities. Instead of keening out our own'people, and in effect  aiding a lower class to come, in ever  increasing numbers, he should take  a turn about and use his influence  and pen in the opposite direction. I'-  we wish a high (-lass of workers. tj  truly civilized class, a law abiding  class, then we can: find them amor?  our British  kinsmen.

CONSCIENCE MAKES   COWARDS.  A quiet bashful sort of a young fellow was making a call on a Capitol  Hill girl one evening not so very long  ago, when her, father came into the  parlor with his watch in his hand. J.t  was about 9:30 o'clock. At the moment the young man was standing on, a  chair straightening a picture over the  ipiaiio. The girl .had asked, him to fix  it. As he turned, the old gentleman, a  gruff, stout fellow, said: %       \  "Young man, do you know what time  it is?"  The bashful youth got off the chair  .nervously. "Yes sir," .he replied. "I  was just .going."  He went into the hall without any  ,de!ay, and took his hat and coat. The'  girl's father followed .him. As the caller reached for the door knob, the old  gentleman again asked him if he knew  what time it was.  "Yes sir," was the youth's reply.  "Good night!" And he left without  wailing to put liis coat on.  After the door had closed the old  gentleman turned to the girl.  "What's the .matter wjth that fellow?" lie asked. "My watch ran down  this afternoon and I wanted him to  tell me the time, so that I could set  :it:"  ���������   ������    ���������  Nearly every man would be fairly  good looking if-it wasn't for his funny  !face.  ^������������g..i..������.������������������������������" "*.*"  PRAIRIE PRODUCE CO.

A   bolt  of  cheese-cloth     costing  no j  more than live cents a yard, is a good j  investment for a householder���������espeei-'  ally  a   country   householder.      It   *'is  valuable in the kitchen, the dairy, the  garden, the poultry-house, the' orchard  aid the vineyard.   ,  Cc\ev;r.g things, either food, mill: cr  cooked trr.it, while they coot, is a  problem mmfc or less troublesome.  Solid covers give a bad taste and a  worse smell; wire-gauze covers are  likely to rust from the "'condensing' ci  vapor; loose cloths sag just when alio  where they should not. The remedj  is cheese-cloth covers. To make them,  cut rounds, ovals or squares-of the  cloth, an inch bigger than the things  they are to cover,;>wit.h a further two-  inch allowance for the hem. Sew inside the hem a heavy clothes-line wire,  shaping it to the cover, and joining the  ends firmly. It will hang over the  edges of the yessel to be covered,  weigh down the cheese-cloth, and keep  it taut and yet permit the escape of  heat and vapor.  The covers can be scalded daily if  they are in constant use; they dry  quickly and the wire does not rust.  About once a month they should be  boiled for half an hour, after wetting  them thoroughly in white soap-suds.  To make a bread and cake" cooler,  tack wide-meshed chicken-wire firmly  over a bottomless box about three  inches deep. Hem sheets of cheesecloth double the size of the box.  Spread half the sheet oh the wire, lay  ���������>ii it the hot bread or cake, and cover  with the other half. The loaf will not  turn soggy and clammy; it will be  crisp outside and light within.  In very hot weather a kitchen, indeed  in ailer the fashion of a cold frame,  and covered with a' sheet of Cheese-  loth, will give earlier berries, although  not quite so full-flavored. Grapes, on  the other hand are sweeter and more  delicate if ripened under cheesecloth,  either spread over their trells or made  into tiny bags���������a bag to' the bunch,  if the b.-ijrs are put on as soon as the  bloom drops, there is little danger of  rot. i Paper bags, however, prevent rot  more   effectually,   and     also     protect  ivafps and bees: But for wall fruit,  the special prey- of winged robbers,  to a central stake, with a hoop, or wire  rim about the bottom, will save newly  ���������;et plants; in the gardeu or borders  alike from frost or drought. Stick  down the stake a little way from the  nothing is better than a sheet of  cheese-cloth, tacked fast to the wall  overhead and reaching quite to the  ground. Peaches, pears and apples  ripen arid blush within its saving folds,  growing even more lucious than if left  in free sunshine. Similarly, cheesecloth sheets spread over dwarf fruit  trees, or fastened over boughs of  standards, just as the fruit begins to  turn, make it more perfect, besides  saving it from birds and insects.  Set wire and cheese-cloth frames  above the upper sash in the front of  poultry-houses���������thus you insure more  light and better ventilation.  Such frames stoutly hinged on make  the best doors for coops meant for  weaned chickens. Always set them  to face south or southeast. Triangular  frames, held together with hooks and  staples, make light, and airy sun-parlors for particularly choice broods:  Put the cloth inside, so the young  fowls shall have no chance to get  tangled  in   the   wire.    A  ring at the  top, firmly fixed, is a help in moving.  Stable windows screened with  cheese-cloth throughout the fly season  do much for the comfort and well-being  of the animals within. Barred cellar  windows should likewise have such  screens���������the amount of dust they keep  out is something surprising.  Out houses generally, especially  those in which glass is likely to be  broken, may have a fair degree of light  and ventilation through the use of  cheese-cloth and wire net. Set the  frames high, close under the eaves on  one side and rather low on the other.  Thus there is constant circulation and  no stagnant air.  LAND ACT  New Westminster Land District.

A cloth-filled frame to fit  in above a lowered sash helps to ventilate a sleeping-room, and at the same!|K  time protects the sleeper from sharp  drafts.

Why or  wherefore no man knows, but the suck.  Ing insects will not live in or under  them, so the vines got a start. Moreover, they grow quicker and more  lustily. Sometimes it is well to put  the frames on even earlier���������they keep  the earth moist and the beating rains  save it from packing.  In late, cold springs, or those of  harsh, drying winds, the frames are  especially helpful. Take care to harden the plants by lifting the boxes  during the warmest sunshine, and  propping them vhalf up for several  hours. When the vines are too big  for them, they may be safely removed  and the plants thinned out.  Cheese-cloth-filled frames laid over  the glass temper the sunshine admirably in hotbeds of cold-frames. In  mild weather, or mild climates, such  frames may take the place of sash.  For such use they must be cross-braced  about every three feet, to have a re-  enforcement of wide-meshed fence-  wire.

MINE ACCIDEPT  TRY AGAIN.  (���������^���������(���������������������������i^i������������vv������������n  (Monetary Times.)  The number of accidents in mines  md in other places where explosives  ire used has been increasing at an  ilarming rate in recent years. These  iccidents are due in part to a lack of  knowledge of the nature ar.d use cf  explosives and in part probably to  lefective manufacture.  In avemptir.g to collect facts relating to accidents from explosives in  Clan?da, the quest was found to be unsatisfactory, since no centralized system for gathering such data.is in existence. The. Department of Labor  tabulates all the facts available,- but  jrom newspaper clippings; the Railway Commissioners obtained reports  of accidents due to operation only,  ind not on construction; the Provin-j  2ial governments record the accidents  in mines, but not in any other class  jf work, and do not always obtain j  complete returns as to the number of  sniployp'-s and, their occupations.   "     j  Tht   following  is   a  statement  pre-,  tared hy Mr. J. G. Sf. Hudson, of t.he|  oss of life in our coal and metr.llifer-  jus   mines   during   the   interval   1.S99-  1003.  In Canada the average for 10 years!  ���������1899  to   190S���������per  1,000  men,  was: I  Evitish Ccluml.'ia��������� j  i  Coal   mines      9.21  \Tova Scotia��������� |  Coal   mines     2.rl  British Columbia: 190S��������� ;  Metalliferous  mines      ij.fj'i  Ontario:  1907��������� :  Copper and nickel     2.19  Silver and iron   7.3o  * ��������� ���������    ������*.  According to  tbe  annual  report of  the Ontario Bureau of Mines, in 1908,  there  were  13  fatal accidents  underground in the silver producing mines  of   Cobalt. ' The     published     returns  state that there were 1,089 men  env,  ployed   underground   in   these   mines,  so that the ratio for fatilities becomes  11.94    iier    LOCO    employees   underground.    There were also 14 fatal accidents in sinking shafts, but the num.  ber of me'n employed in these mines  is net recorded.    In addition. 3  fatal  accidents above ground make a total  of 80 fatal accidents in the Cobalt district.     The     total     force     employed,  above and below ground, was between  3,500  and .4,000  men.  In England the average loss of life  in mines, per 1,000 men employed,  during  the  years  1903  to  1907,  was:  Coal   mines ,    1.29  Metalliferous  mines      1 -OS  The greater number of fatalities hi  Canadian   mines,   as   compared   with  those in   Great  Britain,  is  manifestly  ���������jne to the enforcement of wise laws  and regulations in the later case, and  to the utter absence of protective legislation in the former.    Hence, with a  view of providing a remedy, a ceutivil  station���������similar   to   those   established  in   England   and   the   United   States���������  will -probably  be  built in  Ottawa,  fc.r  the testing; of all  explosives;   and  an  | Explosive Act may be passed elTective-  !-ly  regulating  the~:':--nmmifacture-   and  I sale of explosives, their use in miner.,  | and  in   blasting  operations  generally.  Two young ladies boarded a crowded tramcar and were obliged to stand.  One of them, to steady herself, took  hold  of  whac  she  supposed  was her  friend's   hand.     They   stood   thus  for,  some time, when, on looking down, she I  discovered   that   she   was   holding   a  man's   hand.     Greatly     embarrassed,'  she exclaimed: ���������  "Oh, I've got. the wrong hand!"  Whereupon the man, with a smile,  stretched   forth   his  other hand,   saying:���������  "Mere is the other one, miss.-"���������Tit-  Bits.  ���������f  THE STERLING DRY GOODS!
