 Hearty Greetings and AH Good Wishes for the Mew Yer^\Wf1m  2*lAt 3. C  ARE YOU ON OUR UST?  NO ! WHY ?  SUBSCRIPTION SI A YEAR  IN ADVANCE  Vancou** e -City. Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province  VOLUME II  H. H. Stevens, Editor^  VANCOUVER. British ^LUBreiij ;DBC. 30,  1910.  ion  A persistent effort is being made to secure for all churches in  Vancouver the special privilege of "exemption from Taxation."  An effort is annually made to secure this advantage by certain ^interested parties and at an early meeting of the council this year foveas  vigorously fought by Aid. Stevens; Whitesides, White and others.  At a recent meeting another effort was made by Aid. McBride and  Hepburn, and it was carried on the understanding that a plebiscite  be taken on the question at the next general elections.  This plebiscite is now before the electorate and it is for them to  say if this "special privilege"  isto obtain in Vancouver or not._  It is well for each voter to examine the situatiourrrbriefly, it is  as follows:  The churches or places Of divine worship are not revenue producing, therefore should pay no taxes. So say the advocates of the  scheme. In other words, these churches enjoy lire protection,  police patrol, street and sidewalk facilities, light, water and sanitary  arrangements, etc., and wish to have all these advantages without  bearing a share, of the heavy taxation neeessary to maintain this  costly equipment. Then again, who is to decide what is divine  worship? Is,the city council to constitute itself a Committee on  Creeds? Imagine that body discussing the relative orthodoxy of  Catholicism or Christiau Science, of the belief of the Plymouth  Brethren or the Theosophists, the Salvation Army or the Progressive  Thought-Association, and the many other isms, creeds and beliefs  and no beliefs with which the race is afflicted. The thing is too  absurd to bear intelligent scrutiny, and still common justice would  demand that all organizations who profess to have a form of divine  worship should be exempt.  Further, who is more entitled to exemption than those who own  homes? They are not revenue producers, and that is the basis of  the argument.  It is impossible to draw the line of demarcation^ Impossible  because you cannot make the unjust just, or a wrong into a right.  The movement is founded in the selfish desire of certain individuals to get something for nothing, a sentiment that is at once  demoralizing and unfair.   It is fathered largely by individuals and  has, by no means, the endorsatiou of the members of the congrega-.  tions as a whole.  It cannot be justified by logic, by economic principles, nor by  a plea of expediency. It is wholly unfair, unjust and unwise, and  should be absolutely refused by any intelligent electorate.  CLEBICALS VS. RADIO AL8.  Bpanish Situation Becoming Acute���������Canalejas Must Act.  Following up the revolt in Portugal against the burden of clerical privilege, Spanish Radicals.Yfcre clamoring, for some decided  action on the part of Premier Canalejas.  It is the same old story.   The clericals have been enjoying very  extended advantages for many centuries.   They have maintained  I their position l>y keeping the coin^  extending to the wealthy great liberties, but the facilities of modern  travel and communication, together with the constant intercourse  wih tourists, has served to relieve this ignorance and lead the people  to������ee the state of subserviency in which they were living.  L       All that need be given to any people is fair aud e'quitable treatment ; if this is done voluntarily there is small fear of any disturb-  [ances,. but if on the other hand it is left to the radical element* to'  force these concessions from an unwilling government, then there  'can be but one result���������revolution.   Where there is injustice there  lis bound, sooner or later, to be a re-action and this usually takes the  [form of a bloody strife.  Spain is practically the last great stronghold of the clericals in  Europe. They have ruled her, and thousands of useless clerical  i parasites have' fared sumptuously off the poorer peasantry, but the  day of reckoning is at last come and Spain will do well to look to  the example of Portugal ere the revolutionary blood is thoroughly  roused.  robbery awp JmVrmm:^Ju.^^:_:.

One thing is certain, the number of patrolmen is altogether  inadequate.   We need at least, 50 more men. and must have them.  Another weakness, it would appear, is onr detective department. These men have either too much work or else are not properly trained. It is certain the Police Commission should get busy  and investigate the whole matter.

That the position ;of License Commissioner is one of the most  important iii the eity goes withrtuK||Wt3sti6n7 Further, that it is a  "thankless job'' is also a fact.   ttutiit/hasli/r^ Ivithe  eyes of the man who is outi-Tfor No. LYTo the mail who eares little  for the publie welfare and. hrddR^^  pocket, it offers spleiKlid advantages, providing tfeat he ha������������om������  oommodity which he can tell the trade.  Most, in fact all. respwtable hoielktjtjpers prefer an impartial  commission, but there are eases when it ���������is^poliey for them to buy  '^tiods fnmi a ei/ijuiiiWioiii1!', J!or t\v'o >/nv?(ms*xrttHst>ns':'v  they may need protection at sometime, henee a friend on the Hoard:  secondly, a commissioner who has something'to sell the trade may  make things "hot"' for the man who does not deal with him. For  instance, let us suppose, a commissioner who is engaged in a business  which supplies* hotels extensively, and  for sake .of..argument, we  will take an hotel on  treet, which is conducted b.v a man who  is known as a very careful, observer of the law. he never was known  to sell liquor ou Sunday inn- (iocs he encourage drinking to excess,  but bends his efforts rather to the builduig up of a good house trade.  Conscious of his position in'regard 'to tht: law. be is independent and  purchases bis supplies on the open market., lie is urged by his  ���������steward to lui'v goods from the Commissioner as a matter of policy,  but refuses. He goes away for a brief holiday and returns to'find  two ''spotters*' or detectives bad visited bis house and had induced  'so they sa'd) the person in charu^ to sell them !i<pior during prohibited hours. The hoi'se is fined and -disgraced, the proprietor'is  absolutely ignorant of the case. Tbe police did not send the spotters aud know nothing of it. The question is. who sent them * Is  it-.jtiot possible that...A:.������!nnjt^J!isJf!lA'J'1' ''i*11!^ exercise his ill-will in  that way'? Would it not Im* natural for a mahih suchcifcuiiih  stauc.es to be a little more strict, we will say. with the man who does  not deal with him? In a word, does not an hotclkeeper who would  iffimre the place of business of-cuch a commissioner leav? himself  open to a species oi* i>erseeutioii ���������  Mr. Morrison, the mayoralty candidate, speaking the other  evening on the importance of the position of a license commissioner,  said: "Whatever you do. do not elect a man who has anything to  sell to the trade."   This is sound logic.  Commissioners Findley and Crehan have served the city well,  and as far as we know, have nothing to sell the trade, they are  asking for re-election.  Mr. Alty is a candidate, and is also independent as far as that  goes.  Mr. Almond has ice cream, milk, etc., to sell, that is all we know  of him.  Com. Edgett sells more groceries. proA-'sinns. etc., to the hotels  than any two bouses in the city and is looked upon as the special  representative of Ihe "trade*" ('although it is rumored the "trade"  is getting rather tired of the burden). Tie is asking for re-election  and eWorld be left at home bv acclamation.  Mr. It. McBride is seek'mu the- position. Rumor has it that he  entered the Held to help out bis brother-in-law. Com. Edsrett, whose  seat is in grave danger.-but. we do not credit this aspersion as Mr.  McBride lias always been regarded as a most independent and  honorable gentleman.   However, he. is iu the. field for the o("h'ce.  This fact is of supremo importance, that no man who has anything to sell the trade should be elected.  Voters, it is lip to you. Shall Vancouver lie a city- of clean,  well-kept hotels, or a place of graft' and protection to the lawbreaker!   The verdict is in vour hands.  No. 34  CHINESE   IMMIGRATION.  Kansas City.���������Two persons wene killed!  and more than fifty hurt, four seriously.  . in a street ear collision on the Inter-  ' Citv   viaduct  between   here  and  Kansas  CUV,  Kansas.  It is not. perhaps, the best of form to comment on the investigation of the Chinese Immigration Department which is still in pro-  gress in the eity. but one point cannot fail fo have attracted to notice  of all observant citizens, viz.: the utter lack of system in this department. " .    ���������    i  Many  thousands of dollars  are  handed   from   one  official  to j  another without the vestige of a check on the transaction, simply  a verbal statement.   Voueherless checks are drawn with the abandon j  of multi-millionaires by sub-officials.   Hundreds of Chinese have been  passed on a certain 'stock form" passport.  [t is amazing to conceive of such utter incompetence and carelessness on the part of the heads of departments at Ottawa as apparently exists.  No one should be spared in an exposure of thi.s kind, whoever is  responsible should sufT. r for jt.  Beware of Foreign Guides  Of course, President. James J. Hill. Professor Starr-Jordan, and  a mighty host of influential people in the States advise Canadians  in season and out of season to accept "Reciprocity on the grounds of  good-fellowship, and enlightened trade iniliey. This very fact should  be a sure guide to Canadians to take the opposite course.  tn the attempts of British Statesmen to introduce a tariff reform  for the British Isles, the Free-Traders of the Empire are backed  up by Germany. France, Austria, The States, and every competitive  nation on earth. The fact that continental Europe holds for Pro*  tection for itself, and urges Britain to tenaciously hold to Free-  Trade, should he proof of overwhelming force that the British people should meet the other nations with a protective policy.  So with the States. Their big companies, manufacturing and  financial, are handicapped, because Canada holds the trade advantage. Hence they have their paid lecturers, professors and railway  kings out teaching Canada what she should do. And at this point,  Canadians should be able to see that Professor Jordan, James J.  Hill and their ilk are making special pleading for themselves and  hot for Canada. Professor Jordan, like several of the other clever  ters, bases his pleading on the ground that Canada is the only  country on earth that can procure a permanent basis on whieh  to unite The States and the whole Empire. f  llence Canada should see to it that she does her duty to the  empire by entering into commercial relations most favorable to the  United States.   For if she will not take the plans laid down by the  ���������'above would-be teachers, she would fail in her duty, and be, perhaps,  ..rated as unfriendly to her big neighbor.  By the way, how is it that the Conservative papers of Canada  are mum at the present moment? They are no doubt as strongly  against reciprocity as ever they were. Then, why are they as mum  a������ clams on the subject ? Perhaps they are silent, because they are  b,v consent playing the political game of expediency. They are  waiting until the Ottawa Government shows its hands by a proposed course or plan of legislation. This may be a sort of game,  called shrewd by politicians, but it is not good statesmanship, and  bears on its face a bad appearance. If reciprocity be a good thing  for Canada, then why do not our Conservative papers say so in the(  plainest terms? But if it be a foolish course for Canada, then why  not speak the truth in a fearless and unmistakable manner f  I, at the present moment, understand why so few of the Reform,  ;or Liberal papers have spoken in plain terms, on the question. They  are waiting a word from Ottawa, and until they are told what to do,  they Tare almost unanimously silent.7 Perhaps this is the Conservative fix. TheyYawaitword. ^ come until'  Laurier shows his hand.         "       .                -7.7-  A ftne play of polities, bijt tfbt an open, manly plan of trying -.  to give guidance to the peopte.

Va������t *He������ource���������Not Frop������rly Conserved.  Few persons have the remotest idea of the illimitable supply of  water power which we have in Canada, and. perhaps, fewer stiiti  realize what vast material wealth   is wraped  up   in those great  resources.    It is estimated by J. B. Challis, C. B., of the Department-.  of tlie Interior, that there is at least 25,700,000 horse-power.   These*  figures are so immense that it is impossible to conceive of the almost  inestimable value of these potentialities.   It would take 570,000,000-*������  tons of coal per annum to produce an equal power.   This vast power.-  is worth $1,028,000,000 per annum fully developed, calculated at:  the rate of $40.00 per horse-power.   At present ouly a fruetion over-  ������������������-���������2---pe-r---eent.-of-this_.great.��������� the.',  remaining 98 per cent.? T77T  AVe are told that Fred F. Henshaw, Esq.. tlie noted hyclro-  gnt]iher of the I'nited States Geological Survey, has for some years  Win measuring the waters of the streams of the Northwest and  British Columbia, ostensibly for purposes of legitimate information  lo his government. We are also aware that J. P. Morgan, Rockefeller and other American capitalists have been securing all the  water right* thwy possibly can in Canada. They, no doubt, got  their inspiration from Mr. Henshaw's reports. It is a fact, however,  lhaf we should note that these men arc getting this, control, not  with the view of. immediate development, but for future possible  opportunities.  Now, wise men will ask the question. ''How are \vv protecting  these vast sources of wealth"? Tbe answer must he. "Tbat. the  conservation is inadequate." It is true that some little has been  done, but very little..  Coal and various other fuels are becoming more and more scarce  and expensive. Electrical power is bound, at no very distant date,  to supercede steam power, and then we shall begin to realize what  values wo have stored up in those vast water powers.  Because we have US per cent, undeveloped water power is no  r< ason whv we should be indiflYrcut to their possible future value.  Morgan. Rockefeller et. al cannot be -blamed for securing these  fijrlits if we arc willing to allow them: indeed, why should we refuse?  Hut we can place certain royalties on each horse-power when developed and impose a tax upon all water rights which are being held  undeveloped, and in this way return to the people something of the  wealth whicii is theirs.  With the evolution of power methods which we shall see in the  near future, and with the wonderful potentialities which is our  heritage, and the prodigious quantities of raw materials, such-as  iron, copper, wood, etc. Canada has-within her borders everything  which goes to make a great manufacturing centre, arid T believe we  are destined to be the greatest "workshop" the world has ever seen.  This means a large population and these vast natural resources  should make living an easy matter if they are judiciously conserved.  They are easily capable of paying all cost of administration of the  government, and if properly handled. Canada should be able to  establish manufacturing industries which will be able to compete  with the world and at the same time give her citizens a proper  environment and good living.

Dear Friend:  Will you promise to read this letter right through. It will not be time  lost. I am paying $40.00 for this page, so it will not pay me to fill it with  useless stuff. I was told that 10,000 people read this page, and intelligent  people, too. I'm going to tell you that I can make money for you, and I am  so sure of it, that I will promise if you do not think so at the end of the year,  that I will myself buy your shares at an advance of at least \0%., I could  say much more than 10%, but I take it you are a reasonable person, and if  I can afford to give such a guarantee, my Company must be at least safe for  you to invest in. Another proof that you are-safe to invest With Wis this, the  Dominion Government have examined into our project from every standpoint,  and are so satisfied that we are good, they have given us a bonus of  $1,100,000.00 to help us do what we propose to do in this City (Vancouver).  Our Company owns 4,800 City Lots only Wl miles from the centre of the  City and 8,256 feet of deep water frontage on Burrard Inlet. This property  is worth at least $3,000,000.00 and we only owe $500,000.00. We have  many other, assess which we hav^no^space here to speak of, but if you will  call or write, we shall be only too pleased to explain.  In short, with our guarantee, and the Government at our back, you cannot do better than invest, for you are sure of your interest, and sure of a large  profit two years hence, when we" sell our lands. Does this seem reasonable'  to you? Have you got a little money, which you would invest, if you were  only sure? Will you come and see us? Ask the banks or Bradstreet's about  us if you are still in doubt, then come, and believe me, you are doing the  wisest thing you ever tried in the way of safe and profitable investment.

If the taxes  should become oppressive in any of  these churches, the proper rempdy, to  my mind,,would be for the congregation to apply for aid from Ufi con-  nexional funds of the church, and not  to the public.  Again,  church exemption would  beivilege of exemption shall be grantde,  other religion or "ism" that may establish itself in. Vancouver. There  would, therefore, be millions of dollars  woith of property in the city from  which no revenue would be derived  and as a consequence the already  heavy burden of the taxpayers would  be greatly increased.

That you cannot keep the  abuse within certain bounds has been  abundantly proven by the progress  which the movement has so far made.  The7Mini8terial Association asked for  the exemption of the actual ground  under places of public worship; the  motion passed by th*? council regarding the plebscite, and the notice given  to the Legislature asking for the  amendment of the city's chartei'7throw  the door wide open for wholesale exemption, and prepare the way for the'  abuses which follow in its train. In  fact, so far has exemption from taxation been carried in some cities of  Canada that We have buildings and  'land classed as church property, being used used for purposes of trade  and commerce, arid competing with  legitimate business concerns that pay  their taxes. Exemption has been car-  rieici that far already iii -some Canadian c'.ties, and we have no guarantee  whatever thai it will not be carried to  the same length in Vancouver, providing the plebscite passes and - auffi-  e'ent influence can be brought to bear  upon the members of the city council;  The only safe way to prevent, these  abuses creeping in is to stop the privilege being'granted ln the first place,  consequently every elector "should  mark his ballot against church exemption on January 12th. }.  Again, if church exemption is granted, to what denominations will 'the  privilege be extended?
