Wbitc^^  The above resolution represents, the- fourth futile effort on the  part of Aldermen of the council to secure .for the City of Vancouver  un engineer capable of handling the work of the City. All the members of the Board of Works voted to support the existing policy of  engineering, as did also Alderman Roberts and Dr. /McKechnie.  They offered no reason, no explanation of their position. They  ignored all criticisms and charges. They simply relied on their  assured support and voted down the resolution as was done on  former occasions.' Alderman Enright supported the resolution in n  few brief but pointed remarks. 7 He called attention to the chaotic  condition of the public works of the City as ample justification for  a change. ,7"7" .-���������:������������������:,<���������(.,-,  Alderman Stevens summed the situation up by remarking that  no alderman would-claim that $4,000 per year was adequate salary  for a-man capable of handling the position as it should be done in  Vancouver, yet they were supporting a man whom they practically  Lttcknowledged as inferior by only paying the above salary.   None  , -of those now voting to sustain the present incumbent had been  ^willing to give anyhigher salary, in fact, some had objected to  the present amount.. ���������������������������':���������'  The mayor left the chair to support the motion.. The, following is a letter which was presented by the mayor and which presents very fully the mayor's view:  Office of the Mayor,  City Hall, Vancouver, B. C,  September 26th, 1910:������  To the Board of Aldermen,  City of Vancouver.  {��������� Gentlemen: ���������  Accompanied by two of your number. Aldi^Enrightan^sSteyens^^.made;  a burned tour".of the -citylast Friday with a-view to 6btairiing7,some general  [\idea of.the standing of the outdoor work in view of the probable near approach of the rainy season.   As a result I am strongly of the opinion that,  Lalthough the street work was begun remarkably early this year and has continued through an extraordinarily fine season, the city has seldom, if ever,  [been in worse shape to face the wet weather now likely to begin any day.  Ii am further of the opinion, that the bench-grading system, as exemplified  [at the East. End, Grandview, Mount Pleasant and Kitsilano, is a sheer waste  lof public money for the sake of a theory of validity doubtful anywhere in  [this city, and condemned where it has been put to a practical test in our  lsuburbs both by the heavy expense and the resulting absurdities of con-  [struction.  To take up this latter point first. Where there is a very steep grade it  kmay be arguable that it would be better to make it just a little steeper so as  to allow a bench where teams may pause at street intersections. It is also  [possible that on such hillsides bench-grading may be the best way of obtain-  lirjg a level surface laterally on the streets running parallel with the base of  lthe hill. I offer no opinion as to the requirements of other cities. ,Thele are-  [Tew grades in Vancouver, however, that are any more difficult than those  Ion Granville street south of Fourth avenue, and on the corresponding por-  Ition of Main street. If bench-grading were imperative anywhere here it  [would be on the thoroughfares named. Yet these streets have been per-  ImaneiitTy improved" without resort to beiich-gradirig," and I take the liberty  [to doubt that making the grades between the intersecting streets heavier  [than they are now in order to obtain benches at the intersections would be  iny improvement.  When, however, we take such a thoroughfare as Westminster road, where  gentle grade carries traffic up the hill, there is no question whatever in m.v  lind that bench-grading will make matters worse instead of better for traf-  ic. Whether a series of short inclines and flat benches will improve the  present appearance of the thoroughfare is a matter of taste. My own view  Is that the general lines of this and other thoroughfares are being sacrificed  lo a theory which is being applied uniformly without regard to local conditions. In any event the money spent both here and in similar places on  lench-grading is money spent on frills which decreases hy many thousands  |>f dollars the city's power to spend money on real needs.  I may take as one example of what I have no-hesitation In terming down-  (%ht waste of city money, the so-called improvements in Grandview which  ire being carried out in the teeth of the protests of the people affected.  Some time ago the grading of Salisbury Drive from First avenue, where it  |>egins, to Venables street/where that section of the thoroughfare ends, and  nf the Intersecting streets, was 'apparently finished. Water mains and sew-  ���������rs were laid and many fine residences were built to lines whicii were regarded as permanent. Today a cut varying from two or three to six or  iiore feet may be seen along the drive, leaving the houses and gardens high  tbove the level of the roadbed. The material reniovedi'lias been laid in the  Intersecting streets, stiffening the grades and raising the roadbed there  \bove the level of the lawns, Bench-grading, indeed, must in the great majority of cases either leave a residence up in the air or down in the hole.  \\y point is that all this excavation and filling-in. so damaging to tlie property owners, and, I repeat, entered upon against their expressed wishes, is  Juite unnecessary, and that the money spent would possibly have benefited  Ihe neighborhood more had it been thrown into the Inlet. The existing  Tirade on Salisbury Drive was very moderate and the street not being a  jjirough one, there was no traffic on it such as demanded a perfect grade  so enormous a cost. The cross streets rise gently from Park Drive to  hctoria Drive, and the light delivery wagons which constitute almost the  Jnly traffic over them, stand in no need of a bench to rest on half way up,  i/hile the heavier inclines created are no advantage to them whatever. The  Lbsurdity of bench-grading is here exemplified at Venables street, where the  Viewalks contain four grades in two blocks and where a gbod deal of work  is still to be done to make the roadbed confomi to them and also to make  more difficult to ascend.  The money that has been spent in this neighborhood is only a mere  [action of what will have to be spent.   The excavation of Salisbury Drive  I scarcely half the width of the thoroughfare, and on both sides a great deal  work has still to be done to reduce the boulevards and sidewalks to the  ^me level.   Meanwhile the street corners are disfigured by humps through  lich steep footpaths have been cut which are now almost impassible for  Dmen  with baby carriages,  and which  will lie slippery, muddy inclines  len the wet weather set in.    Before leaving this district I may add that  Fe sidewalks were torn up four months ago, and that not only are the  He streets, with the exception of Venables. still without them, but that  pen if the cement-layers went up there tomorrow they would be unable to  the walks on the upper section of Parker street because the grading  \s not been completed.    Water-mains have been lowered to accommodate  lowered grades, sewer man-holes built to the old grade have been cut  ^wn, and the work left in such shape that there we must continue and  lish it. It will be almost impossible, however, to give the neighborhood  tything like the facilities in the way of sidewalks it enjoyed last spring  |>fore the wet weather comes on.  Going on down the hill we find bench-grading being pursued for the  Inefit of the north and south streets which carry no great traffic,-to the  permanent Injury of the east and west stri^tis'which unite the centre of the  city with' its eastern suburbs. Thegentle^siope of Oxford street is now a  series of sharp inclines and flat teiTaces.as-is also the case with the streets  parallel. Iii the extreme west, as iii the extreme east, the bench-grade system is working its injurious effects; A trip along Fourth avenue affords  convincing evidence oh this/point; 'V'7'..������t\i=!i7 77 ���������..''��������� '.>.-���������.  With regard. to the state of the W)0rk,7l7think it will be agreed that at  this advanced period of the1 year -all -wo������k;3liich affects traffic ought to be  in such shape that there is no danger of Vjie streets and sidewalks being  left in an unfinished condition throughout the winter. Sewer work, which  goes on all the year round, is jivdifferent tiiatter. Should the heavy rains  set in now, and that is a contingency which-ahould be regarded as almost  a certainty in this city, it isi at least dlftl'ait to see how many thoroughfares and sidewalks aie to be put into pas'able condition for the winter. I  repeat that in this respect, so far as a hurried Inspection affords evidence,  it seems to me that we are hi worse shape .than in any year, of which I'have  knowledge. . ; k    ,  ,  You have befpre you a proposal that,a Aim of outside engineers be  given charge of the bridge work of the city on a percentage basis. A local  firm is already In charge of the waterworks system. I thinlc, however, the  time has come for the re-organization of the engineering department under  the supervision of a man competent to take* charge of every branch of the  public works of the city, the present city engineer to be retained, if he so  elect, as one of the assistants whom such * supervising engineer would re-  quiie. I believe that the money saved the city directly in fees and indirectly by the substitution of better methods of work 'would pay several  times over the salary of such a chief engineer, who should be the best of  his class we can find, and I so recommend.i\  7      L.

Mr. Bernard Partridge's cartoon in last week's "Punch" is one  that, of itself, uonld establish an artist's reputation.- It is a fine  piece of drawing, and constitutes a most powerful indictment of the  conduct of that section of the newspaper jiress which relies upon its  salacious reports of djvorce cases, and' sensational dealings with  crime and criminals, as bait to catch the nickels of the public. The  picture is called "A Dirty Trade," and shows a dishevelled ruffian,  girt about with a newspaper placard and standing in a pool of filth.  He is holding out his hat and yelling to the public: "Here you are,.  gents! Chuck us a few more coppers an' I'll roll in it!" the pla-  card, which forms this wretch's only * garment, bears these suggestive words: "Home life of the feihale prisoner. Full details!  See the 'Muck-rake.' " The filthy pool he stands in is labelled "Sensation." \ i  PORT MOODY  Thriving Suburb  h  >  V  w-  ,  *"   ���������      <>    .  <������������.������   vajV    \*yv f \* s      ^   *  ���������* ^ -������   C*^ "^ *������  j\' #*&K������  ,   J. p > *    tk  s  .       i      Ik  ^_iJ^iAa*.. .li&A*  d^te^yi  *2s    I  ^g^MmmmmSK.*^    mWm  POWER LAUNCH "DODGER."

Electric  Scores Victory  Aldermen Vote Control of Street to Company���������City Solicitor  .���������-..'.��������� Advises Against It,  One of the most seandalotis sacrifices of the public interests ever  perpetrated in the history of* the City was sanctioned at>last Monday's meeting of the City Council, when the Council virtually voted  the control of Sixteenth avenue for a fipriod of five years into the  hands of the B'. C. ElectricTRy. Co., thereby effectually tying the  hands of future councils and making the City liable for the cost^of  maintaining not only the City's portion of the street, but also that  portion which it is the duty of the railway company to maintain.'  The proposal was made at a former meeting but was referred  back to the Board of Works, who recommended that-"the B.C.  Electric be requested to construct a tram line on Sixteenth avenue;  and that the City guarantee not to ask for any permanent work'to  be done ou the street for five years, and not to pave the street.'-*  Alderman Stevens riioyed and Alderman Whitesides seconded  the following resolution in amendment to the recommendation of  the Board of Works: 7 ^ .    .   '  Recommended, that whereas there is urgent need of a car line on Sixteenth avenue, from Oak street to" Main street, and whereas the property  owners and residents of that vicinity have repeatedly,petitioned both the  city and the B..C. Electric for such a line, and whereas the street has recently been graded and -put' in excellent condition for the construction- of  such line, .  Be it (therefore "resolved-'.'that the B. C. Electric-Railway company be  formally requested to instal said.line at the earliest possible date, in accordance with their agreement y/ltii the city,       '    *  And be it further resolved that this council recommends toifuture councils a careful consideration of the then'existing conditions regarding this.  street, and as far as may be consistent with the best interests of the city,  that only such changes be made on the said street, for a period of five years,  as may be necessary;  And be it further resolved that thls-icouncil desires to place Itself on  record as opposed to making any binding arrangement with any company,  holding valuable public franchises, which will interfere with the freedom of  action of future councils, and that the city clerk be instructed to advise the  B. C. Electric Railway company that its' request, that the city agree not to  make any permanent improvements on Sixteenth avenue for,live years, is  refused on the foregoing grounds. - ;, ��������� , '       , , , ',  For���������Aid. Stevens, Whitesides, Enright, MacPhersori, Ramsay.J,   w  Against���������Aid. Crow, Hepburn, McBride, McKechnie, Roberts, .White.  Thus the amendment of Alderman Sf evens,was lost on the above  division. This was done in'spite of the following letter from the  city solicitor on the question: -  City Clerk, September 23rd,  1910.'   *  City Hall. -    Re Sixteenth Avenue Car Line. , *, i, ^  Dear Sir:��������� " . '    - ���������  As I stated to the council at the last meeting, there is nothing to prevent the #t������ fromvraaking an agreement with the B.,C. Electric Railway  company that'ifthe litfe^oiiWibiilhl a line oa';Sl*teentb avenue the city  would not call upon the B. C. Electric Railway company to put in permanent'  tiacks for five years, but the city cannot safely make it a provision of any  feiich agieement with the B. C. Electric that the city will not pave Sixteenth  avenue for any such length of time, and for the following reasons:  If the city make any such last mentioned agreement it could, of course,  get the property owners concerned to consent to the same and agree not  to petition for a pavement under the "Local Improvement" provisions for  five years. Such agreement on the part of the property owners, however,  would only bind those who signed it, and if. within oiid'or more years' time,  or even less, the ownership of all the pioperty could change hands, then if  a sufficient number of such new owners petitioned for a pavement under the  "Local Improvement" provisions, the city would be bound to pass a Local  Improvement by-law and put down the pavement, and I do not think it could  contract itself out of the duty to do this by any agreement with the B. C.  Electric Railway company.  Assuming that the city makes an agieement with the U. C Electric  Railway company, that the city will not call on the rompany to put down $  permanent tracks for five years, and assuming further that in, say two years'  time, new property owners compel the city to pass a by-law under the Local  Improvement provisions to pave the street, the result would be that the city  could not then compel the B. C. Electric Railway to put down its permanent  tracks, and���������as.the city,would have to proceed and pave the street, it would  have to pay the expense of putting down the permanent tracks Itself.  Yoius truly,  CITY   SOLICITOR.  Diet. J. G. H.  It will be seen from this opinion and advice from the solicitor  that the City placed itself in the position that if the owners petition for improvements that the City Avill be obliged to do it. and  also lay the permanent track for Ihe Company. This will cost,  according to the fitrnres of Mr. Glover, the mana<r<M' of ihe company,  at least $00,000. This action is tho more reprehensible when it is  considered that if was not uecpssary at all. The IV C. Electric suggested this nnd. forsooth, the aldermen, or part of them, simply  vied. with, each other who could do most to advance the interest-of  ihe Companv. The request'was unreasonable on the part of the  company. As pointed out by the mover of the amendment, the time  for the company to object, to p'uttincr down permanent tracks-was  vlien siicli were demanded. The traffic will pay from the moment  the cars can run. so there is no room for,.objection by the company.  It was simply another illustration of how subservient many of the  aldermen are fo tliis corporation. It is becoming an-open question  ���������who rules the City. Ihe Council or the. corporations?  RECIPROCITY.  From an article by Mr. E. R Osborn in the "National Review":  Two years ago reciprocity wilh the ,United States, with its infinite possibilities, was the idea in the air. and if it should be taken  up by some crowd-compelling personality, some master of straightforward thinking and straight talking on either side of Canada's  fiscal policy is inevitable. Fortunately for us. there is no such personality in sight either on the American or the Canadian horizon.  There is yet time, if the advocates of Imperial Preference here and  in Canada will use the passing hour aright. The heat of the first  enthusiasm is not lost but latent: and a flood of light has been shed  bv the discussions of the last seven or eight years on the question  of the effect of a treatv. of'mutual preference between Canada and  the Mother country. The people of the-West now understand that  Croat Britain is Canada's chief customer, and that this custom  must be kept and safeguarded against the rivalry of foreign competitors (of whom Argentina is the most dangerous) if the development of her West is to proceed without interruption. "When Western Canada produces 250.000.000 bushels of wheat annually, the  whole of the exportable surplus cannot be marketed if Canada has  not gained control of the all-red route into Briton's stomach.  Thoughtful men of both historic parties in the Dominion have  grasped this necessity of the near future, and would be willing to  make liberal trade concessions in order to secure the Canadian  grain-grower's position in the Brtiish market. The price thev will  pay is nothing less thars thi.s���������to turn each and every reduction in  the tariff to the sole advantage of Great Britain, whence Canada  can obtain all the goods she cannot profitably manufacture herself."

The action will be brought through  the United States district attorney in  New York. Attorney-General Wickersham himself will have personal supervision of the action.

RELIGION vs. 8TATE.  Is Canada to be Governed by a  Religious Body.  SHALL  CHILDREN   WORK.  (Christian Guardian)  The question was raised a few days  ago by a prominent business man  whether the age had not gone too far  in its child legislation. He pointed  out that now it was illegal for a child j  to do anything but attend school until  that child bad reached twelve or even  fourteen years of age, and he gave it  as his opinion that such a state of  afflairs was good neither for tbe child  nor for-the nation.  This is a question that will bear  thorough investigation and discussion.  The day has gone by, we think, when  any enlightened community will tolerate the inhuman exploitation of child  labor, which has disgraced nations in  other days. The factory child of long  ago must never be seen again.' But  the question arises, "Is our present  system wholly wise?" Is it wise to  say to the child, "There must be school  life, and nothing but school life, for  you during your early years?" Should  there not be some mild drill in what  work means, wholly apart from books?  We very much incline to the opinion  that there should.  On the farm the chores form part,  and a necessary and very useful part  of a child's daily life, and under wise  and loving management those chores  give the child a training which, is  worth much. But very many of pur  school cfiildren have no chores to perform. Most of them will have to  work, and work hard, for a livelihood.  Is a childhood which knows nothing  but school the best preparation for  their future toil ? Does it not tend  rather to wean our children from the  manual labor which they will have to  perform by and by?  But a remedy is hard to find. Ir.  mafly cases there seems to be nothing  which a child can do, and even the  things which he could do will be better done by an older person. For  this reason father and mother usually  do what is to be dene around the  home, and the. childien do nothing.  This may be better for the work, but  it is certainly worse for the children.  Let the children learn to work with  their hands as well as to work with  their brains.  THE   PROBLEM   OF   THE  WHOLE  WOMEN.  Our Socialistic Friends are fond ot  quoting the phrase "The Whole Man",  and quite right to, but, we ask what  about the "whole Woman."  Man, they say, is not merely an ani ���������  mal. Is woman? Has she no intellectual moral nature? It would appear that she had not, judging by the  attitude of some men toward her.  Actually we have met individuals calling themselves educated men in the  city of Vancouver, who think that woman's wants are all satisfied when  kept in eternal proximity to pots and  pans with the diversion of three daily  meals. Said a faithful, wife and  mother, a devoted housekeeper, to me  the other day, "I shall go mad If I've  no other interests than those of th-i'  I--Itchen", yet my husband thinks 1  must keep my nose amidst the pots nr.'l  pans continually and be perfectly sat -  isfied. but I claim that a woman's  mind must have intellectual food as  veil as a man. " Quite right my  friend", I replied. Woman, to live a  whole complete life as her maker in -  tended, should claim, demand an-1 ob  tain the satisfaction of inte'lectual,  atheletic. moral and spiritual needs as  far as possible. She should have time  to take an intelligent interest in social  and economic matters, in all that pers -  tains to family, home and country.  Why we ask, do our men treat the 'Woman's Movement" with contempt or  ridicule? It is really time that they  change this attitude- else they will be  left behind in the march of progress.  The white man will awaken one day  to find himself outstripped in the race  of civilization by the so-called "hea -  then", for in Oriental countries to-day,  the men are awakening to see that  emancipated womanhood make for  national progress and prosperity, ar.d  unless we get a "move on", in the  Occident, the Turk, the Mohammedan,  wiil first obtain the goal. We say  therefore, down with tyranny and des  potism. whether of the home or coun -  try, of husband or king.  , OBSERVER.  Some Press Comments. <  The Ottawa Citizen of Tuesday said:  The Euchai istic Congress in Montreal is practically oveiV but it will  leave in its train a number of matters  calculated to sow the seeds of dissension in Canada which may take  years to root out. The addresses of  Rev. Father Vaughan have raised a  tempest in a teapot which will do lit--  tie more than project that ecclesiastic  into the limelight. j  He was known to be a firebrand,  and only, two or three years ago he  created a disturbance in Rome which  it required a large force of Italian  soldiers to quell. On that occasion  he spoke in French and the tenor  of his remarks was of such a lurid  character that it was necessary to  corners to soothe the Italian populace.  So tha't the authorities who had  charge of the arrangements for the  Congress here could not have been  taken by surprise by anything that  this reverend gentleman might say.  "But the majority of the population are interested in the fact that on  no occasion during the twenty-one  sessions of this congress, has there  been such a participation of the state  of any country, whether Protestant  or Roman Catholic in the exaltation  of church dignitaries by the country  in which the congress has been held.  In the publication of the:order of  the procession on Sunday, towards the  fag end of the procession was announced to appear "the administrator  of Canada and his staff," later on appeared the Lieut.-Governor of Quebec  and his staff.  This was following up the telegram  extended to the Papal delegate "the  homage" of the administrator pf this  country who acts on behalf of the  Governor-General in his absence. Also  extending to the papal dignitary a  state reception by the Premier and  ministers of the crown of this Dominion of which considerable more  than half are Protestants, who had  been insulted a few days before by  one of the retinue of the Papal representative. >  The Citizen says:  "A serious precedent has been created. Should an officer commanding  a regiment in Canada, whose men are  Protestants and inclined to Orage-  ism, parade his regiment in the King's  uniform and fully armed, to take part  in an Orange procession. What is  the Minister of Militia going to do?  Shall   he   have   that   officer   arrested  and court martialled for a breach of  the King's regulations, or is the militia of Canada to be in the position  of having one regulation for Protestant ..troops and another for French-  Canadian troops? Should the conflict  of authority occur, there will be a fine  ruction in the ranks of the militia  of Canada."  Have we Been Absolved,of Our Allegiance to the King?  (Toronto World, Sept. 14.)  The excuse is offered for Mr. Justice Girouard who as "Administrator  of the Government of Canada," "presented" "his homage" to His Excellency Cardinal Vannutelli that he did  it from his own cottage at Tadousac  ���������that neither the Secretary of State  (Hon. Charles Murphy) nor the gold-  stick ot the department (Mr. Joseph  Pope) knew anything of it until later.  Mr. Justice Girouard can send any  private wires he likes; hut as Administrator of the Government of Canada,  as representing Earl Grey, who fills  the office of the King, is in fact the  King for the time being, he did a foolish and a highly unconstitutional  thing in presenting "homage" to the  legate of the Pope. /  The Protestant succession in England���������in Canada as well���������is absolutely based on no homage to the Pope.  It all turns on that.  If the King offers "homage" to the  Pope he admits the Pope to be his  superior in religion just as Mr. Justice Girouard, meant it. This is tantamount to declaring on the part of the  person pesenting homage that he is  of the Roman Catholic communion. As  Mr. Asquith pointed out in the late  debate on the bill which abolished the  parts in the royal declaration that  were unnecessary offensive to His  Majestie's Roman Catholic subjects, if-  the Sovereign is a Roman Catholic���������  and by presenting his homage we believe he would so declare it���������then by  the Bill of Rights and the supplementary act "the King's subjects are  absolved from all allegiance to him."  Has Mr. Justice Girouard given us  all an opportunity of disowning our  allegiance?  Certainly Mr. Justice Girouard made  a bad break; certainly the Prime Minister'and Secretary of State owe the  country an explanation; and certainly  the head and officers of the Department of 'State had better exercise a  more careful supervision of the acts  'of the Administration of the Government of Canada.  Our own opinion is that one or more  resignations are in order. There is  no excuse for carelessness, still less  of design, in such things.  DR. DERI AND AND HIS RESCUE  DOG8.  In ancient warfare savage dogs were  trained to attack the enemy, the his-  torians tell us, and Charles V. had bo  less than four thousand of these brave  fighters in his wars in France. The  savage tribes of Germany beat back  the.Romans with the aid of similar  ferocious animals, aa'd Pliny tells of  dogs fighting in battle three centuries  before Christ. Now, "however, the dog  is being trained to Just the opposite  service, and is to appear as a Red  Cross messenger. Dr. Deriand, who  is training a squad of intelligent animals for this 'work in the French  Army, is quoted in the Kansas City  Star as saying:  The Red Cross dogs recognize no  authority except that of a uniformed  doctor with a red cross on his arm.  They will .not obey a command that is  given even by ah officer in uniform if  the red cross is not on this sleeve. A  stranger can put on the. doc tor's uniform with the band, and instantly the  dog greets him as a' master.  The dogs are .trained in two different ways. One set is taught never to  bark when a wounded soldier is discovered, for fear of exciting the sick  or drawing the attention of an enemy  who might slaughter even the fallen.  The dog will wrestle and pull until he  getf the soldier's cap in his mouth.  Then he rushes'back to camp, giving  up his capture as a sign that a soldier  in distress has been found. Another  set, however, gives^ the alarm by short,  but regular howls* sounds which guide  the medical corps to the spot where  the woiinded'*He.A       , '  In maneuvers, the "wounded' 'soldier  hides in tall grass or deep down in a  ravine" fas|trom the temporary camp.  One oftbe^dbgs is brought out for the  test of1ff|dihg him. he sniffs the .air,  listens to the wind, and then suddenly 1^7 gj&'es forward, first this way and  then that���������swinging from side to side  like an, unsteady ship at sea���������nostrils  quivering and eyes dilated After a  momentary hesitation he is off, and  after a short wait the astute little animal is. seen afar off bearing the red  cap i<J his mouth. He singles out the  doctor" and places the cap'at his feet.  The doctor attaches a leash to him  and the dog leads him to the hidden  man. ���������>"     \- k^\.] ' ���������  I The dogs are taught never to scent  put the dead. . It is their duty to find  the living, but if a soldier is able to  stand erect, no amount of coaxing will  bring the dog within reach for the  purpose of securing the liquor that  maybe strapped on him. The soldier  must lie flat on the ground, to all appearances unable to rise, before the  dog will pay any attention to him.  TM ISM COPPER CQMY.

The gathering of the Life Underwriters' Association of Canada in^Tor-  onto this week again drew attention  to the economic importance of the organization. The business or profession  jof life insurance has grown to extensive proportions. The total amount  of life insurance in force in the Dominion has increased from $35,000,000  in 1869 to $780,000,000 in 1909, a gain  of 2,078 per cent. A gratifying fact is  that in the former year, Canadian  companies held only 15 per cent, of the  amount in force and 13 per cent, of  ! the  permlums   received  ed June 30 last exceeded 12.800,000  ounces, valued at over five million dol.  lars, an increase of $890,000 on the  figures for January-June, 190S.

A   peculiar   assessment   case   ha  arisen in connection with a couple  townships in South-Western Ontarf  The Canada Company originally owj  ed large tracts of land' in the tov  ships    of Raleigh and Tilbury Ee  which they r afterwards    sold to M  tiers.   Everything went along smoof  ly until oil was discovered in this tfl  ritory.   Naturally the farmer who hi  held   undisputed   possession   of  lafl  for half a century or so thought  had a right to the oil which had  discovered upon his farm.    But jt  then the Canada Company stepped  and pointed to a mineral reservatll  in each deed,-under���������which they clajl  ed all the oil which might be produc  in the territory.    They even claim]  the right to enter upon the said farf  and  rill  for  oil  without asking  permission    from    the owner of  farm.    Tbis created  a situation  was simply intolerable.   We are  that the farmers offered to buy t|  mineral reservation from the compe  at from $1.00 to $5.00 an acre, but  company refused to sell.   Then a  was   introduced   into    the   Proving  Parliament to allow a municipality]  assess such mineral rights.   The  became law in 1907, and as soon  possible the assessors    assessed  Canada Company for the value of tr,  mineral   reservations.

THE WESTERN CALL, VAI.COUVB  HIDEOUS BENCH GRADES TO  REMAIN.  ..-77 ;     ���������   (World.)       ,  There: was a long and. bitter contest in last Council meeting on the  bench grade question.  In. the board of works report were  grades on Third, Fourth and Fifth  avenues.  Alderman MePherson wanted, to  know if these were to be on the bench  grade system, . and, being Informed  that: they were, opened the preliminary skirmish of /the battle of the  grades."  Alderman MePherson said he objected to bench grades, as they made  streets, which looked well enough as  they were, look perfectly hideous. He  moved - that the recommendations be  laid over for further consideration.  Alderman McBride recalled the  somewhat surprising history of . the  bench grade question. Last year, it  appeared, he had opposed bench-grading against an otherwise united council, but as committers of aldermen  who had visited the cities to the south  came back convinced that bench  grading was the right method he had  felt it his duty to support and carry  out the system.  Alderman Stevens said that on exceedingly steep sidehills, bench-grading might be advisable and there  might be such places in Vancouver.  On Westminster road and other easy  slopes, however, the bench-grade was  simply hideous.  '  Alderman Ramsay demanded an opportunity to look into the matte*'. It  had yet to be proved to him that  bench-grading was the best system.  Alderman Hepburn defended the  bench-grading done so far. If the people on the side hills wanted to live  on the grades now scratched out, well  and good. If not he agreed with the  city engineer. He would, however,  accept the motion to defer consideration.  Alderman Whiteside having demanded what was the object of the  resolution, Alderman MePherson carried the history of bench-grading back  to early days, and gave the council  the astonishing information that once  upon a time Vvestminster Avenue, and  Granville street were bench-graded,  and that people like the benches so  little that at great expense the thoroughfares' were changed to continuous  Inclines.  Eventually the motion was lost, and  Third, fourth and Fifth avenues are  to be accorded the benefits of full initiation into the bench-grade system.  The vote was aa follows: ForT^-Hep-  burn, Ramsay, Stevens, MePherson,  Enright, against���������Roberts, Crowe Mc-  I^Cechnie, White, Whitside and McBride.  CONFERENCE   ON   WHITfc   SLAVE  ..   TRAFFIC,   ETC.  ;    PHONES AGAIN.  t  In an interview Mr. Joseph Beach,  [formerly of Vancouver, now of Los  [Angeles, informs the "Call" that the  | Automatic 'Phone in Los Angeles is  a splendid success. He has heard no  .complaints regarding it, and was not  [aware of any agitation to amalgamate  [the systems. Most of the business  I houses have the Automatic and gen-  I erally express tbe opinion that it is  I only the matter of a short time before  lthe Manual will be run out of business. One - important feature._ of _ the  f Automatic was tbat it was equally ac-  I curate and prompt night or day. This  [is a distinct advantage.  Mr. Beach is living near Los Angelas and speaks very highly of his new  borne. He represents the "Canadian  Pacific Oil Company" who have a num.  er of producing wells and are paying  regular dividends.  He advises strongly against invest-  Intent in. the "wildcat" class, stating  [that there are many irresponsibk-  ���������companies who are selling stock with  little to warrant it.

Morning, afternoon and evening sessions will be  held, to which the public are invited.  It is especially desired that the Mayor, City Council, Police and License  Commissioners, lawyers, doctors,  judges and magistrates, as well as the  general public, should attend these  meetings. A thorough discussion of  lthe questions at issue in moral reform  'will be taken up by men arid women  thoroughly capable, to handle them.  In addition to the above sessions there  ��������� will be a special meeting for women  the same evening at the Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church, by the kind  consent of the pastor and session.  Also a public meeting for men and  women at the Kitsilano Presbyterian  Church the same evening, and a special meeting for men only at one of  the down-town churches yet to be arranged. There will also be a special  meeting for boys from 4 to 5 p. ra. at  the Y. M. C. A., Cambie street. This  meeting will be addressed by capable  speakers "to boys and young men. It  is'especially requested that the older  boys of all the schools will try, to be  present, and that the women who attend tbe Mount Pleasant Church will  take as many girls over 16 years of  age as they posibly can. Altogether,  it Is expected that these gatherings  will be fruitful in education and prevention, touching the various evils to  be attacked. A conference of this^ nature has never been held in this city  under such advanced auspices. Further particulars of the program will  appear next Saturday.  GEMS OF WISDOM.

Los  Angeles,  Cal.,   22-9-10.  Smith & Woodworth,  Vancouver, B. C:  As proof of the popularity of the  automatic phone over manual, we estimate from 75 to 85 per cent, of all  calls in the city are made over our  system. The demand for automatic  phones is greater than we have been  able to supply. Many are now on the  waiting list. We have just finished  cutting our system over from manual  to automatic at great expense, the reason being better service. As to dual  system, we believe competition good  lor the public, but in the end the automatic will put the manual out of  business. I^ouck's resolution was referred to board'of public utilities, who  returned it to council, stating dual  connection was impracticable and that  there'was no general complaint or automatic.

It  The Need oftheAge\ Telephone Brief lets  The workingman is taken up with |  his work and its pressing social problems; he is fighting for his bread; is  constantly confronted with conditions  in which he needs guidance and sym  pathy. The world is at present much  absorbed in practical questions of  economics, declares the Rev. Paul  Moore Strayer in "The Homiletic Review" (New York), and the preacher  who wishes to be listened to must be  prepared to answer the questions,  whether uttered or unuttered, of his  hearers. As it is, we are told, the  sermon has made no response to the  needs, the cravings, the experiences,  of the working class. The sermon is  top often a string of moral generalities or dogmatic assertions:  "Men have stayed away from the  churches because our preaching did  not seem to gear to their actual life  and help them where they most needed help. We have confined ourselves  to t}ie problems of personal morality  and solved them to the satisfaction  of all. Here we have little to say that  is new, for Christian standards of  ethics are familiar to Western peoples.   So long as we restrict ourselves  "The present business system is not  chargeable to the kings    of    finance  alone.    The sins of corporations are  not all to be laid at the door of direc  tors and officials.    Often    they    are  goaded on to do what they know is  wrong by the demands of the stockholders, great and small, who insist  on a larger dividend than can be earned  by just and  honorable    methods.  Many of these stockholders are among  the guileless members of our churches.  They are incapable of personal wrongdoing.   Much that is done in the concern  in  which  they own  stock they  would condemn if they knew about it.  But they insist on larger and largo-  dividends,   without   ever   considering  how those dividends are secured.   The  clamor of stockholders for dividends  and the demand of the purchaser for  cheapness; these two are responsible  in large part for tlje injustice of industry."  He thinks ministers and "preachers  should copy the Hebrew prophets, who  were great politicians; yet be imitators of the Prince of Peace and teach  men their duties as well as their  rights.    At  present  the  workingman  to  personal  morality  we  are  saying J considers the labor union more relig-  nothing that the people do not know  ious than the Church, for the pulpit is  already. And that great new world  of industry with its immense ethical  problems, where men are losing their  way for want of guidance, we moral  teachers have scarcely etnered.  "We have come to an industrial organization of the world. Industry absorbs the life of the people. If we  have nothing to say about industrial  right and wrong we have little to say  that matters. When the Archbishop  of Canterbury announced recently that  he worked seventeen hours a day and  had no time left to form an opinion  as to the solution of the problem of  the unemployed, Mr. Keir Hardie replied that 'a religion which demands  seventeen hours a day for organization, and leaves ho time for a single  thought about starving and despairing  men and women and children, has no  message for this age.' " v  The writer demands a fresh and  modern equipment for preachers, and  quotes with approbation Professor  Peabody's assertion that neither "ethical passion nor historical genius  equips a preacher for economic judgment." Yet economic judgments are  exactly what the modern preacher is  called upon to deliver. To quote further: ��������� ���������  "We must have a message for an  industrial age, or cease to be moral  leaders. Some fear that in trying to  interpret the rights and needs of those  who toil and to show the interest of  the Church in child labor and hours  of employment for women and similar  social problems, the Church may regain those whom it has lost, but lose  those it now has. The captains of industry will leave the Church, they say,  if the Church seems to befriend the  privates in the ranks of industry. I  do not believe it. For captains of industry-are Christian-men,-honest and  fair-minded men, and they want to  have interpreted to them how the law  of Christ applies to their life and  work. They.are in doubt as to their  duty, they are in trouble because there  is now much that they want to do  but can not. And they will accept  with gratitude any consensus of opinion which will set new standards that  will permit them to follow their own  hearts and their present feeling of  lirotherliness."  And here he throws out a valuable  hint'-to young preachers, as to the  caution they must use:  not teaching him any such thing a&  his duties, declares Dr. Strayer. The  workingmen have to go elsewhere to  have their questionings of heart and  mind answered.   Thus we read:  "Pick up almost any volume of sermons and see how little is said about  social conditions. Even today, which  is the age of the social question, men  must go to the theater tb hear the  problems of capital and labor, work  and wages, class and class, seriously  grappled with. It is right here the  Church must have a strong guiding  hand.   .    .    .  "The great Hebrew prophets were  mighty meddlers in politics. "They  had a sense of their responsibility as  moral teachers. They were quick to  see the sufferings of the poor, the  wrongs of the weak. Tbey sat in judgment, on the social conditions of their  time. They pointed out injustice  wherever it was practiced. They made  it their business to see that justice  was done. And so must we if we  would not degenerate from prophets  of God to priests of the groves'and  high places.  "We are ministers of the Prince of  Peace, and the task to which we are  called today is >the establishment of  industrial peace and economic, righteousness in order to make way for  that social order which (we know as  the kingdom of heaven. I would not  have the Church turn its building into  a lodging-house, its classrooms into  soup-kitchens, its meeting for prayer  into a labor lyceum. I would not  have it embark on new social enterprises in order to meet the sneer of  some youthful social worker or overcome the suspicion of the labor-unionist. But I would have the minister of  Christ call men's attention away from  the question of rights to that.of duties,  as Mazzini did. I would have him  teach a new kind of competition, a  competition in social service. I would  have him make clear that the merchant or manufacturer or lawyer or  artizan is called to his business as the  preacher to his ministering; and that  Christ calls the business men as well  as the apostles to follow him and become 'fishers of men,' workers in  human values and not in dead, inert,  material things. That makes ;ife romantic and redeems it from di udgery.  to be a worker witn men."���������"Literary  Digest."  Government Ownership Telephones  in B. C.  "In a reply just forwarded by the'  Premier to Mr. J. C. Watters as chairman of the influential delegation representative of organized labor, which  interviewed the executive on Jan. 31,  incidental disclosure is made of  several features of governmental policy respecting which there has been  very particular interest is it in view  of the marked attention that has been  given the proposals in this regard  throughout the country during the past  few months, to learn that the government does not look with favor upon  the suggestion emanating with Vancouver city and subsequently endorsed  by numerous other city and rural  municipalities, that tbe province arrange for the taking over of all existing telephone franchises and services  throughout British Columbia,, and the  operation of telephone hereafter as a  national utility.  The adoption of the plan recommended by Vancouver would involve  a first charge of many millions upon  the credit of the province,, together  with vast expenditures in extensions  throughout the country in districts not  now served by telephone companies  for the obvious reason that the possibilities of profit are not apparent. It  is also taken into consideration that  the physical conditions of British  Columbia are such as to make the establishment and maintenance of a  general telephone system for, this  province enormously expensive; and  it is not yet the accepted policy to  nationalize such public utilities as the  telephone���������indeed should such nation-  alization be adopted as in the public  interest, it would be more naturally  a federal than a provincial matter,  and associated with the postal and  telegraphic services, as in Australia  and New Zealand."���������"Daily Province,"  March 15, 1910.

SEPTEMBER HOD AND GUN.  With the opening of the bird shooting swison  the September "number of  Rod and Gun in Canada, published by  W. J. Taylor Limited. Woodstock, Ont.,  gives a number of delightful    stories?  dealing with days amongst the (lucks,  geese, woodcock and prairie chickens-  experiences which will cause many   a  thrill    to   sportsmen    reading     them.  Numbers will be able to duplicate, in  remembrance, many of these published  experiences, and in this way live over  again red letter times in their histories.     Variety marks this    production,  every lover of outdoors, whatever his  particular taste,    receiving    attention.  The story of two young moose, one of  a pet raccoon, the efforts of an ama -  teur to trap a bear, particulars of the  American bison, the Alpine Club's last  camp and some dog lore show the manner in which the magazine covers   the  wide variety of Canadian outdoor life  The verses in this number are excel -  lent, and the Bohemian ring of "Fish-  in's Good" will find an echo with many  even of the most staid.       "My Little  Fisherman." with his wonderful story  of the monster that got away appeals  to the sympathies of   all,   while   the  "Evening cKOrous.. is    equally   good.  The issue should be found with every  shooting parly this season.  Calgary People Saw it in  Edmonton.  "The cut-over on the new,automatic  telephone exchange in the west end  of the city was made on Saturday  night, and 500 phones in the district  lying west of Fourth street west and  south of the railway tract are now  being operated from an automatic  switchboard. The local telephone  staff has been very busily engaged for  the past two days distributing new  telephone directories.  Calgary now has 1,000 phones being  operated on the automatic system,  500 east of the Elbow river, and 500  in the west end.  The order has already been placed  for automatic switchboards for the  central part of the city, but it will  take several months before they are  installed, and the entire system is  placed on the automatic plan.  The inauguration of a complete automatic system will mean a loss of  several thousand dollars to the telephone department, it being but three  years since new switchboards on the  old plan were installed in Calgary.  The life of these :-- switchboards is  about twenty years; and the department will have to dispose of them  at a loss.  There will, of course, be a great  saving in the salaries of operators, and  more satisfactory service to subscribers in the city."���������"Calgary News,"  Sept. 10th, 1910.  This Comes from Butte.

Prior to the entry of the Independent Telephone Company the telephone service in this city was very  unsatisfactory, and while the entry of  the new company made an additional  expense on our citizens, they are  nevertheless satisfied because of the  excellent service they are receiving  at the present time.

A new-land bill, -which is now tinder discussion by the New  Zealand government, will niake it compulsory on large land-owners  to lease their estates to the government. The land will be subdivided and let in blocks to tenants, who will have the right to acquire, if they so choose, the freehold of the property from the owner.  Only owners of land valued at ������40,000 and oyer will be affected by  this enactment.  During recent years many of the older and more thickly settled countries have found it necessary to force the large land-owners to sub-divide their lands. It is absolutely essential to the life  and happiness of a nation that free access be allowed to the land.  It is equally imperative that individuals or companies who acquire  or control extensive tracts of land, be compelled to cultivate the  same and not allow it to remain wild. The re-adjustment of conditions in older countries is becoming a more intricate problem each  year, and is a striking example for younger communities to study  for their Wn guidance.  ���������The system of imposing the bulk of the taxes on the land has  "been found to work well, and will go a long way to prevent abuor*  mal condition's from arising.  British Columbia, "the last great West," is rapidly passing into  the hands <of "land sharks," who will simply fleece the bona tide  settler when he arrives.  ... The loeai government could, if they would, protect the national  wealth of this province from exploitation by these unscrupulous  parasites, who do.not develop, but on the contrary retard the progress of the country, by the imposition of a land tax which would be  sufficiently heavy to force the holder to cultivate and by a wise and  judicious system of assisting land settlers.  INCREASE OF JUVENILE CRIME.  . Crimes'committed by young persons between fourteen and twenty years of age have quadrupled between 182b' and 1880. according  to G. L. Duprat, author of a recent work on "Criminality in Youth"  (Paris, 1909). Pacts of this order are considered by experts among  the most alarming that investigation has brought to light, for the  young delinquent i.s the most dangerous of criminals. The increase  has apparently taken place in all civilized countries. Says a reviewer of Duprat's book in the 7" Revue Scientifique (Paris,  July 2):���������  "In Prussia, from 1882 to 1889, au average increase of 1,000  a year has been noted. In the same period, the number of young  criminals has doubled iu Holland, trebled in Spain, grown by 27 per  cent, in Austria, and by 25 per cent, in the United States. \ . .  The same is true of the increase of juvenile crime in relation to tiiat  of general criminality in most countries. In France there are four  youthful homicides to 100.000 persons of the same age, and only  2.2 adult hoinieides to 100,000 persons of that age   "Tlie causes of this increasing youthful crime are minutely  analyzed by Duprat���������degeneracy, alcoholism, disease, neglect by  parents, defective school education, unhealthy suggestion, the press,  the theater, bad habits, gambling, debauchery, etc. Summing tip,  he concludes that the increase may be chiefly attributed to social  dissolution.  "In the third part of his book, Mr. Duprat treats the question  of repression and of moral cure. He studies the prisons of Prance  and other countries, shows the necessity of a complete reorganization of our houses of correction, indicate* preventive measures, aud  gives useful.directions to those who are interested in schools tor the  abnormal. Finally, he notes the necessity of acting on public opinion, ij order that unhealthy publications may be suppressed, the  hygiene of dwellings improved, and strife waged against alcoholism, prostitution, and pauperism."���������The Literary Digest.  ONTARIO TO ABOLISH OLD SYSTEM PRISON LABOR,  The Ontario government has recently abolished the system of  prison labor contracts in that province. In future the majority of  the prisoners in the penal institutions of Ontario will be 'employed  upon farms and the making of roads in the newly opened districts.  There will, however, be a percentage of the prisoners whose health  or other circumstances will prevent them from joining in this open  air work. These men will manufacture hospital supplies���������beds,  blankets, and so forth, which will be offered to the hospitals receiving financial aid from the Provincial Government, and provided the  prices and quality of the goods are found to compare favorably with  those of similar articles offered in the open market, the hospitals  will be expected to purchase the prison-made products.  TAX EXEMPTION.  This year the assessed value of Vancouver's property was $76.-  927.720.00.  Church  property exempt from taxation in the City of Montreal last year was $00,000,000, or nearly equal to Vancouver's total-  assessment.  For years a certain element has been seeking to have church  property in Vancouver exempted; they wish to insert the thin edge  of^ the -wedge. -������������������- If allowed to-do so. in ten years we would iace_ a  situation as alarming as that of Montreal, Quebec and other Eastern  cities. ��������� '  PREVENTION OP INFANT MpRTALITY.  The rector of Havvkchnrch, Devonshire, England (the Kev. II.  Marks), and Mrs. Marks, are anxious to put a stop to the increasing  infant mortality in the parish, and in a circular which they have  sent to the parishioners they say that they are very desirous of  encouraging mothers to fulfil the natural duty of nursing their  babies, and will give the following rewards to those who do so:���������  To a mother feeding her baby at the breast for nine months. -CI ;  for six months, 15s.; and for a portion of six months. 7s. 6d. St?it-  istics show, they say, that out of 100 bottle-fed children 50 die  during their first year, and out of 100 breast-fed children only  seven die. Mrs. Marks promises to supply nursing mothers with  books giving instructions about the feeding of infant children, and  the rector will provide out of the.sick and needy fund milk to poor  mothers while nursing their babies.  The awful mortality among infants in the civilized world is  increasing with alarming rapidity, owing largely to neglect and  to poor milk. Any movement which will lessen this merits most  hearty support.  FINAL ROUND-UP OF BUFFALO.  Advices received by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway from the  superintendent of the Canadian National Buffalo Park at Wain-  wright. give the informtaion that there are now 752 buffalo, including calves born this year, in the enclosure. There are about 100  buffalo left on the Pablo ranch in Montana, and the final round-up  of these animals is now going on. and the delivery of this number  will be made about October. When these remaining buffalo arc  added to Buffalo Park, it will make the largest herd in the world,  and. in fact, the only herd of any consequence in existence. This  park is one of the interesting features of Wainwright, on the Grand  Trunk Pacific Railway.  60 YEARS*  EXPERIENCE  Trade Marks  Dcsions  Copyrights ue.

Twelve months' experience of letter collecting hy motor ear  has led the Victorian (Australia) postal authorities to ask the central administration for two more cars for this work. It ha* been  found that one large motor car does the work of five carts, and also  saves one hour and three-quarters in effecting the clearances. Saving in time and money has been so marked that already pristul officials talk of the disappearance of the horse from city and suburban  services, and the collection of ali mails by motor wagons.

Contrary to the fond expectation of the City Council and al  large portion of the electors, the Provincial Government has refused]  to approve of the plans of the Great Northern improvements of]  False Creek. .    ' ]  A careful perusal of the reasons given will convince any reason-]  able person that the Government could not have taken any otheri  course.  Briefly the position was this: The Government in 1904 Crowni  granted to the City all its interests in the bed of False Creek, uponi  the condition that the City did not alienate the property or use it  for other than the public interests. In view of this the Executive,!  after securing advice from four of Canada's leading K. C.'s, decided'  that it was not within its power to grant the request of the City toi  deed to the Great Northern Railway 130 acres of the land so granted.]  Undoubtedly the Government was perfectly right, in this contention.'  We have'always v'ontended that this valuable heritage should!  always remain under the control of the City. We have previously'  urged that the City should outline a scheme of development, which!  could easily be financed on its own security, independent of thei  City's general debt.  Alderman Hepburn, in commenting on the action of the Gov-'!  eminent, bitterly criticised the attorney general, stating that the  questions submitted did not bear upon the question at all.   As al  matter of fact the mayor and Alderman Hepburn went to Victoria  and asked only for. approval of certain plans and refrained to ask  for right to alienate, claiming that if they got the former, it wouldj  be easier to secure the latter.   It was mere childishness to presume!  that the Government would be unable to see through the matter ov\  that they were unaware of the intentions of the City.    It would!  have been much better to have requested tha Government to acquisc^j  in the whole scheme, rather than try to get some subtle advantage.]  This method certainly did not tend to strengthen the case for the!  City.  The,following questions were submitted to eminent counsel foi  opinion by the attorney general, who thus was enabled to submit  independent advice to the Provincial Executive:  1. Is the plan or scheme of reclamation set out in the agree-!  ment of May 16, 19.10, between the City and the railway company!  such a plan as is contemplated by the False Creek Foreshore Act  of 1904 and amendments?  2. Has the city of Vancouver poAver under its grant from the  crown to convey the said lands or any portion thereof to the railway  company or as the law now stands, must the fee always remain iri  the corporation of the City of Vancouver? ' ]  3. Has the crown the power to rectify the grant without spe]  cial legislation? '  4. The land being now vested in the City of Vancouver can thj  1 city reeonvey it to the Crown in order that the Crown may issue  new grant with new or different conditions and provisions?  5. Does section 7 of the Act cover the case presented by thj  agreement, betwen the City and the railway company? '  6. Has th lieutenant governor in council power to approve <  the plan of reclamation as submitted?  7. Is the by-law proposed to be submitted to the electors ol  Vancouver such a by-law as is contemplated by the Act?  BOY  SCOUTS  TO   ENTERTAIN.
