Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province
VANCOUVER, British Columbia,   NOV.  4,   1910.
No. 26
Mayor of Rome Object of Bitter Attack-
Designated as Anti-Catholic.
A few weeks ago we published the statement of:the Mayor of
Rome. Signor Nathan, on the occasion of the anniversary of the
. occupation of Rome by the Italian Government ni..l870.    I-lis remarks were patriotic and .perhaps "anti-clerical,     hut not     anti-
eatliolic,"   'inhere is a vast difference between.the two.   Ihe most
.mischievous influence in the state is th��t of clericals, except in the
plain.-performance..of their religious duties.   When a priest oi any
church interfere with the public business there is sure to be trouble.
We do hot refer.with the right of everyone to express their opiuion
on anv and  all  public questions,  but to that subtle; underhand
influence whieh is often exerted by the religious adviser of men,ini.
publie office and which seldom comes into the ope%to discuss any
issue.   Such interference we, contend is pernicious, and Italy is now
-seeking to-divorce the Church and State, or in other words,  is
I   endeavoring to have the. affairs of the state stand, on Jheir .own
V bas'is and merits:   The Muvoriof Rome has; been, guilty o% advocating
���  tliis separation of ChnrcK arid State andfor so doing has brought
dowit on hi^ head -tlie anathema of the Holy Father, aud incidentally
oi those who are anxious to court the special favor of the Vatican.
A local contempory. the World, recently published an, article
purporting to come from Rome, in which it is stated that V except
in Socialist and Anarchistic circles it is agreed that Mr. Nathan
took an unfair advantage 'of his position, Rome has long siuce
ceased to- take Signor Nathan and his speeches seriously, and there
was �� disposition to ignore bim. The Pope ,says,.Signor Nathan.was
not satisfied with recalling the anniversary, but also dared to offend
the doctrines of the Catholic faith and Church:" It is evidently
the intention of this article.to lessen the significance of the agita-
, tion how going on in Italy, Spain and Portugal against the political
I influence of the, clericals, but it. it* absolutely useless\to^ attempt to

dealing with it, as is evidenced by the foflowhig despatch t
"That the Government are: vigorously attacking the question
of social reform is further proved by the fact that Sir Joseph Ward

[claim t'iie Governments should have done long siuce, viz.,-assist't
^farmers to get outfitTand settle itiithePrairies.   According Mrect
The Canadian Northern Railway Co. are about to do what we
imgM recent
I despatches I'rom England. "Colonel" Howell, head of the Immigra-
ftion Department of the Salvation Army in Toronto1, has resigned
Lthat position to take over the charge of the big immigration scheme
Lwhieh the Canadian Northern Railway-Company is organizing,, and
[for which purpose he will reside largely in Great Britain. The
company's proposal is to take out farmers and farm labourers from
fhe Old Country and settle them on farms along the route of the
N. R. in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia,
for in Ontario, if the immigrants so desire. Plans are under consideration for assisting those who desire to take up land by loans for
Jthc purchase of stock and implements, and for instruction the first
lin the Canadian methods of farming. Should the development of
jhe coal fields of the West, which the McKenzie & Mann interests
Control, require it, miners will also be taken to Canada.
i!     The efforts of some local persons to secure a training ship for
joys find an echo in the following despatch from Southampton:
Proposed Training Ship.���The Southampton Education Com-
nittee are about to consider the question of a proposed training
hip for Southampton, which has been referred to them by the
ounty council. The chief object is to enable boys desirous of hecom-
g sailors in the mercantile marine to obtain the training which will
elp them to employment as such."
\'. Many have a false conception of what the proposal reallyis.
ftiiey seem to think that the idea is to train boys for the navy. This
altogether wrong. The proposal is to provide means whereby a
Uy can be trained in the rudiments of seamanship and discipline
,sual on the high-seas, with the view of fitting him for the profession
,a seaman on the mercantile marine or navy if he should so
loose. It would have a decided tendency to raise the standard of
ur sailors and also would provide a suitable and healthy surround-
ig for the boy who has "run wild."
The big campaign being planned by the Y. M. C. A. to raise
�� a half-million dollars next week, is another indication of the
\1 fact that our city is viewing things in a large way, and that
? the men who have this matter in hand are not of small calibre.
One thing that is of particular[interest to our readers is the
% fact that the Board of Directore pf|the. Association hayc made
<>. a compresensive. survey .of the7cityi7.arid the plan proposed is
! I to include three buildings, two of \^hich will be located in the

One small organization in a mountain town with a few
ernest men back of it, is of such power in the community, that < ���
a great R. R. system is affected, with the result that Sir \\
Thomas S'haughnessy sets aside $30,000 for a building at one Jj
point, with a view to an experiment. So satisfied is he with it i>

The company asked for a term of 25 years from date of new
agreement, The chairman of the. committee, Aid. Stevens, thought
this was too long and that..twenty"years was ample, which would
mean the extension of the city franchise for-eleven y^ars.anct the
reduction of the outside districts by nineteen years. Mayor Taylor
urged in favor of the demand of the B. O Electric, and finally suggested that a compromise be made between-the 25 years and 20
The chairman, with Aid. Crow, Enright and MacPherson, insisted on the 20-year period, and this was finally adopted by the
committee and Mr. Glover asked to present the term to the 13. C.
Electric Company and report to the committee later. Other concessions were left in abeyance pending the adjustment of this maiu
point. t ���
The company have expressed the willingness to allow "city
fares" throughout the whole district, also to increase by one per

The stock objection to "Government Ownership" of all forms
that the business will never be so well conducted as under private
Iwnership. To this claim we offer for consideration the following
latement of the Minister of Railways in New Zealand re the Government Railways of that country:
"Ah excellent testimonial to the care taken in keeping rolling
fock in good order on New Zealand railways is provided in a return
engine failures quoted-by the Minister of Railways in his annual
latemeilt.   With some railways an engine-run of 5000 miles without
[failure is considered:satisfactory, while others set up 16.000 miles
?r failure  as the standard for-passenger engines.    Taking' the
lole. Government railway, system, 48,990 miles were run for every

Until three years ago Wei land, in  the-Niagara district of Ontario; was a  listless place of 1200 inhabitants. It  is now a busy manufacturing town of  7000 people. Niagara electricity at  $12 per horse power, combined with  excellent transportation facilities by  rail and water, is partly the secret of  this remarkable progress. The Canadian tariff is also somewhat responsible.

There was a small job of diving to  be done and, as the divers were all  absent, an Irishman who had just been  engaged to work the air pump volun-  teerer to go down. He was told how  to signal when he wished to be  brought to the surface. He had gone  down barely long enough to begin  work when he signaled that he wanted  to come up. As soon as he was on the  boat, he motioned to have the helmet  taken off.  "Begob," he said, when his head  was free, "I'll not wor-r-k where I  can't spit on me hands."  A noted'lawyer had a case in hand,  in which, amongst other things, he  wished to prove that his client had no  money, and to that end he cross-questioned a witness on the other side as  follows: "You asked my client for  money, did you not?" "Well, yes sir."  "Answer promptly; let us have no  hesitation. You asked him for money.  Now, what was his answer?" "I don't  know as I can tell." "But surely you  remember?" "Yes, sir." "Then out  with it. What was his answer?" "I'd  rather not tell." "Ho, ho! you are  on that tack, are you? You won't  j'ell?" "I would rather not, sir."  "But you must; and if you don't an-  swer my question promptly and truthfully I'll call upon the Court to com -  mit you for contempt." "Well, sir,  if 1 must tell tales out ot school, hers  you have it, I aslred him yesterday  if he could lend me half a crown, and  he told me he couldn't."    "And    you  believed him did you not?" "Yes,  -ir: for he said you had.robbed him  of every penny of his ready money,  and if he didn't get out of your hands  pretty soon his wife and little ones  would come to������������������" "That will do,  sir, you can stand down."  j      B.C.

Says    he:���������"Don't  ask for rights.    Tak thim.    An' don't  let 'a'nriy' one, give thim to'     ye.       A  right that is handed to ye f'r nawthin'.  has somethin' the matter with it.   It's  more than likely it's only    a   wrong  turned inside out."'' It is very evident  that men universally have taken tviir  right of women, and its only fair, that  .women have their turn of taking their  rights;   ."Oh!xindeed says one brother  the nien are   the     women's     rights.  You've got US, what more     do   you  want?    Well, you men may   be   -Mr.  Right or> Mr. Wrong, but     its     clear  you're not allright on woman's rights,  and so you must be put   right.-'    Of  course your education has; been defi -  clent in the past in'this respect   and  there may be an infinitessimal excuse  for the ignorance that   obtains,    and  to remedy this defect we woman pur -  pose to carry on an educational campaign, and assume or' rather   assert  oiir rights iof justice, equality, etc. etc.,  in a reasonable and dignified manner,  as Miss.

He  certainly, has the approbation and admiration of millions of mothers 7 and  wives.      Is riot that     something    of  which to be proud?    Is that illogical  or unreasonable to wish to   see     our  civic and national offices filled    with  men of calibre?  A remarkable .escape from death is  recorded of a party.of baloomsts near  London. Having attained a height of  0000 feet, when j.pver Chingl'ord, Essex, the aeronauts opened the valve  and let out sufficient gas to allow a  descent of 1000 ftv ��������� A. further descent-  was made by. this means, but on a,  third occasion the valve opened, .,aM;  refused to close, thus allowing the gars  to escape without hindrance. , The;  baloon began to fall at a terrific rate.  Sijand ballast was thrown out, but so  fast was the descent that a trail Of  sand was left in the air above. When  nearing the ground the envelope was  practically empty, and the rush of gas  had been such that the occupants of  the car were nearly overcome. The  anchor was thrown out and caught,  but the thick rope snapped and after'  almost colliding with a brick-kiln the  balloon just cleared a hedge, and fell  with a great shock into^ the middle of  q field, making a deep njple!' in . the  ground. The resourcefulness of the  dcupants saved them from ^erio'us.ln-  jury- They hauled themsel ves-up ���������' by  ifepes -attjjiching the car to the envelope of the balloon to lesson,' the shock  when it struck the ground, and thus  escaped with slight bruises and,  Sprains.  ��������� ���������������������������'77' 7.       r )l  ���������*������  Oakley Heating & Sheet Metal Co.  ���������V','c;v;Vn;&''^>Y',':'i'v,/-;-^ ���������-'-'    '  not Water Heating a Specialty.

He said that  "the total number of births registered  last year in England and Wales was  914,621, equal to 25.6 per 1000; whereas in 1876 the births were equal to  3C.3 per 1000. This means that where  four children were born in 1876-80  only three were born in 1908. Nor is  the decline confined to the Mother  Country. In thirty years the birthrate in Australia fell from 41.9 to 27.  3r.. The phenomenon which, there -  t'ove confronts us in an arrest of  birth force in the English-speaking  portions of the Empire. If the diminution of the birth-rate could be  phown to prevail among the unfit, we  might view the phenomenon without  apprehension, but the decline is most  marked among those classes in which  England might justly welcome large  families."  ^PROPERTY OFF THE MARKET.

GOVERNMENT RAILWAYS  VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA.  The Railway Commissioners are  finding themselves hard pressed to  cope with the rapidly expanding traffic. The Newport workshops produced only 55 carriages during the financial year 1909-10, and permanent additions to the time-table necessitated  the use of 100 cars more than in 1908-  9. A large force of men is now engaged at Newport in this work. About  1200 men are now employed by the  State in railway construction in different parts of tbe State.  INDIA'S JUTE CROP.

Several  hundred tone of this fuel are being  brought to Ottawa and sold and delivered at $3.25 per ton, The peat fuel  has a calorific efficiency which equals  that given by hard coal costing at  present $6 per ton.

AMERICAN EXPORTS AND IMPORTS.  In September the excess of exports  from the United States, as compared  to imports, was of the valuation of  $51,587,000, the excess last August having been but 3,563,000. The excess in  September was partly attributable to  the falling off in imports and partly to  increased cotton exports. September  marks the beginning of fall export  swell, so that the excess ofi exports  over imports is always more or less  heavy during that, and the, remaining  months of the year. ;  Vancouver.���������The court of appeals  have. reversed the decision of Justice  Morrison re Vancouver City vs.  Ludgate for possession of Deadndan's  Island.

The official figures of the Oversea  trade of the Commonwealth for July  show that, in comparison with the  corresponding month in 1909, imports  of merchandise increased by ������1,147.-  813. and exports other than gold,  expanded    by    857.376. Diminished  shipments of specie and bullion, however     reduced     the     excess     of ex-  norts to  ������21^.000.

One day  the millionaire wrote to the novelist  an impudent letter, saying that the  way in which the author's servants  were trespassing on his grounds was  outrageous.    The novelist wrote back;J  "Dear Sir,���������I am very sorry to hear  that my servants have been poaching  on your preserves. P. S.���������You'll excuse me mentioning your preserves,  won't you?"
