H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER,   British Columbia, JAN.  27,    1911.  No.-38  Seattle Reaches       I Marriage Laws  Critical Stage'  War Declared on Vice���������Morality vs. Immorality -Tremendous Contest on.  Seattle has reached a critical stage iu1 her history. Vice is in  control of the civic affairs in the person of Mayor Hi Gill. A sufficient number of signatures were obtained,to secure his recall, and  now the contest is on. It is claimed that during the few days that  it was possihle for voters to register, that,over 75.000 persons had  their names placed on the voters' list.   v  This will show how keen is the interest. Women are now permitted to vote in the State of Washington; and thousands of them  are registering in Seattle. >,.->��������� <  The forces of Hi G'll, the profligate mayor, are getting all the  riff-raff of the city oh the lists. The denizen? of .the underworld are  sdl registering, ln every beer/hall and wine parlor, iu every hotel,  saloon and dive in the city. Hi Gill is the favorite, and all manner  of schemes are being used to secure his election. He has no chance  Among the decent vote, but depends on the hordes from the underworld to elect him.. He will have the support of the non-moral"class  as well���������those who have no definite ideas of ethics or morality are ,  largely supporting Gill.  Against these are lined up all the decency and morality of the  city.   The greater part of the business men and professional men  * together with the decent citizens, are supporting Dilling, the opponent of Gill. '  It will be an historic fight, and* will largely decide the fate of  Seattle as far as its moral life is concerned.  If Gill wins, the mad career of lust and wine-bibbing will continue, and will grow until the whole city is saturated with vicious-  ness. Nothing too strong can be said to describe the utter abandon'  ^ of this element of Seattle society.   The frequenters of the wine cafes  comprise a large portion of the citizens, as well as the demi-monde  . and the players at the theaters. The line of demarcation between  (the decent and the indecent is becoming more and more vague, and  one might well describe the life of this "fast set" as a species of  {^madness which gives itself over to the utter abandon of a life from  Iwhich all the noble, self-sacrificing elements' has been totally eliminated. The chief characteristics of this set are:' selfishness, licenY  Itiousness; indulgence/ defiance'of all.sentiments of molality, indof  rlence, a passion for show and an insatiable desire for the1 sensational.,  [Their rendezvous is the fashionable wine' cafes, the theaters where  Edecency is a stranger, the beer halls, etc.; all this element, with the  [thugs, rogues, and rascals, are supporting Gill.  ���������'.- - ^ '     ' '     " -1  While the social conditions in Seattle are in a deplorable con- .-  Idition, there is a cldss of noble, fearless citizens therej who do not  hesitate to speak out frankly against this state of affairs. The most  Conspicuous of these is Dr. Mathews of the First Presbyterian Church,  '/ho has done more than any other to bring about a recognition of  the mad downward career of Seattle society. Dr. Mathews ha* most  Persistently thundered against evil in all its forms, until the decent  Element has at last roused itself to an active conception of the danger to the city's future, and now the city is divided into two camps  ^-those for Gill and vice, and those for Dilling and decency. Which  rill win ? It is hard to say. Vice has the advantage of being well  jitrenched and now in control; but once the American people get  lioroughly aroused they will usually go the extent of their opportunity.  We sincerely hope Dilling will be elected, and Gill, the profligate mayor, defeated.  Vancouver, -Beware /  Seattle is house-cleaning.   They needed it badly.   The question  l>r us to consider is where wiil these denizens of the under-world  >?   "To Vancouver" is becoming the slogan of this class from the  ���������ties to the south of us.  We have experienced a carnival of crime in this eity, during  [c past year, which is unequalled in her history. It is uselesh shut-  ng our eyes to facts, no matter how unpleasant they may be.   There  Ve two distinct causes���������one o utward and one inward.  \   First we would draw attention tothe .undeniable fact that Van-  >uver is becoming the dumping ground of Seattle, Tacoma, Port-  Ind and.other coast cities.   The outcasts from these cities are flock-  tg to Vancouver in hundreds and little is done to check the influx,  (here-are-certain individuals who would welcome all comers, no  latter of what type^beeause it creates business.   And another class  ]e actuated'by.':a ..maudlin  sympathy  for-.the . poor '��������� creature's���������  Ivhere," they will ask, "are they to go."   To the latter let us say  tit these creatures do not come to us to get our help in-order that  ley may become good citizens, but to live like parasites, lives of  liolonce and vice.   They are not "penitents," but utter degener-  js.'Y To the others Ave would simply say, that the class of business  lieh usually follows the gambler, the race-track sharper, the music-  Ill performer is not at all desirable or profitable.   We can well  lord the loss of it. ������ :   '' ' Y','   V'"���������>."-..'��������������������������� "U ��������� a.JHMb|*NI"  The other cause, to which we referred as being "inward," is to  [found in the evident tendency on the part of our citizens to shut  fir eyes to vice.   We are constantly patting ourselves on the back  saying that we are the cleanest city, morally, on the coast. This  _?ht be quite true and still not be saying much for the morals of  Incouver., Some of our neighbors are blushing with shame at the  Editions which obtain in their city, so we would do well to look  nir condition before dt is too late..  If we are morally so immaculate, then how can we account for  .murders, the hold-ups, the burglaries and an over-flowing jail?  ftre is creeping into this city the continental institution of the  ^e cafe, one of the greatest curses of modern society, because it  Jrupts the womanhood of the community as well as the manhood,  pilso largely eliminates the line of demarcation between the moral  the immoral���������between the decent and the vicious. That which  _ formally considered ,as low, base and immoral, becomes fashion-  |r and soon deadend tlie'public conscience- to such an extent that  litions, which formerly were frowned upon, become institutional.  These "wine cafes,"'with their alluring music, are becoming an  jpted factor in this city and a corresponding moral deeadance  . follow. We are not at all given to crying "blue-ruin-" but it is  possible to close our eves to evidence such as we have in abundance  Again  Last week we published a letter with an extract from a Belfast paper,  commenting on the interference by Roman Catholic priests with parties married  by Protestant clergymen. *  As a result of a decree issued by the Pope, all marriages not solemnized  by a Roman Catholic priest is not a ma/riage at all, and those contracting,  such marriages are living in sin.  This stigma which is placed upon the great majority of the Anglo-Saxon  race is an insult to the intelligence of our people, but that is not the worst  feature; these priests are continuously interfering with families where husband  or wife is a Protestant and telling them that'they are not married, and resulting  in the breaking up of homes and the destroying of the lives of many highly  respectable persons.  ��������� The letter and editorial comment of last week met the eyes of a Roman  Catholic lady, whose name for very obvious reasons is withheld, and she has  written us the following letter: -���������"-* ���������- , '    ���������  Editor of Western Call: '" V   :   ,     /^l J   ��������� \,r , .   .'  Dear Sir,���������/ have read with deep interest the letter in your last issue  signed "Catholicus," and can quite understand &h)y he did not sign his name.  We do not need to go home to Ireland for such cases, for a. similar .one happened here in Vancouver. A young Scotch servant girl was brought Out here  from Scotland by a Roman Catholic Canadian, who deserted her after stealing  all her money and leaving her with only the clothes she wore. Broken hearted,  she went to a local Irish priest (whose name we have) for advice and sympathy.  He told her SHE WAS NOT MARRIED AT ALL. Imagine the feelings of that poor girl.   This occurred in the home of a Mrs. C , a Catholic  lady on Howe Street, with whom the girl was in a situation.  She was married by a Presbyterian minister. I am a Catholic, so please  do not publish my name, for it would be more than my life is worth if you  did. All the parties concerned were Irish, with the exception of the girl, who  was'Scotch.   It is time these poor girls were'warned against such men.  Your paper is doing splendid Worff and''is an education to the readers;  go ahead.  AN INDIGNANT CATHOLIC.  ���������* ' i  Tliis is another case where a priest has wrecked a home.   We Teiterate  what we said last week, that the duty of our government is to see that the  .dignity of- die British laws is upheld, and that His Holiness the Pope be  informed that he has no right to interfere with our subjects who are living in,  union according to the laws, of the realm.

Not only should wo arouse ourselves regarding existing  conditions, but we should also become thoroughly seized of the inevitable result of the attack now being made upon vice in Seattle.  These people, the victims of vice, all go along the line of least resistance, and consequently when pressure is brought to bear upon them  in Seattle they will flock to this city in hordes, and what are we doing  to prevent them? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. '' Why,'' some will  say in reference to the foregoing article, "have we not one of the  best police forces on the coast, and is not our chief one of the best  in Canada." As far as neatness of dress is concerned, and in the matter of discipline and courtesy our i"ore������ is well to the top. Our chief  is one of the ablest men in Canadian police circles. He is a perfect  gentleman and absolutely honest we believe. One only needs to look  at his handsome i'aceto feel perfect confidence in him and we are  justly proud of hi.s splendid appearance.  Then wherein is tlie weakness in the force whicii would warrant  any fear as to the future administration of this department? This  is a pertinent, question and one upon whicii we purpose only touching slightly.at this time, leaving for future articles a.closer discussion of the question, but we do wish to impress upon the publie mind  and conscience this fact, that no chief of police, however efficient lie  may be, can keep a city clean if he is not supported by public sentiment or by the police commission, who really represent the public.  It is rarely that we hear any mention of the "Police Commission,"  ���������Simply because they invariably endeavor to get through the year  with as little effort as it is possible to expend. They do not take the  position seriously, nor do the public take them seriously, and yet  they are the men who should control this situation.  We are paying our chief $4500.00 per year and are hot getting  from him all that he is able and, we believe, willing to give, because  Of the lack of adequate publie support.  A new commission has recently been appointed and. it is up to  them to "make good."  We have a right to demand that those who accept the position  should assunte the responsibility. We have the right of protection  even at the cost of great risk and effort on the part of those in  charge. If a commissioner does not wish to shoulder this obligation  ���������then let him resign. In any case it is due to the police force and to  the public that our commissioners should take the -full responsibility  of a fearless enforcement of the law at any cost.  British laws, well enforced, will give us all the necessary protection against vice and crime. But British laws hidden away on tlie  book shelves of the police station will do no one any good.  ..., We boast, and justly so, of the glory of the British laws,,and  their protection, but we-forget that the very laws which are chiefly  responsible for British supremacy are- the ones which we are now  looking on as dead letters and substituting for them the sentiments  and institutions of continental Europe.  British laws, British institutions, customs and morals is what we  should advocate and defend, and if we do this we have little to fear.  "The statement oft Farmers Bank affairs issued this week by Mr.  G. T. Clarkson, the curator and interim liquidator, will not raise  h\<. h hopes in the shareholders. It reveals the extraordinary fact that  spl.156.000. or more than twice the amount o^the bank'Si paid-up  capital, was sunk in the Keeley mine. For a bank to gamble aVmall,,  sum in a good mine may be legitimate business. To risk a small *um  in a prospect is dangerous. For a bank to gamble with twiee; the  amount of its capital in an unproved mineral property:-in a,-new  mining district about which little is known, shotild.bej-if it is not,  criminal. The curator's statement shows that the bank and the mine  were closely linked in, apparently at least, iour ways-^-by current  loan* and overdrafts of $321,100, by call loans of $300,000, by stocks  and bonds of $535,000,> and by a loan#of $621,000, for which $1,000,-  000 worth of the mining company's,bonds were held m security.  The nominal deficiency is figured by-the curator at $436,011.  The question of a double liability call seems to hinge on the value of  the Keeley mine, a sotry hinge.- It may prove worthless,.and in that  event the deficiency will be increased to $1,591,000. Its, value might  to some extent be tested by offering to gentleman, who, have disposed,  of their shares, these same shares. Considering the facts,and figures,  it would seem as though a double liability call is inevitable. As msny  of the shareholders will be unable to meet this, the burden will be  heavier for the creditors, and may even fall upon the depositors. .  In explaining his statement, Mr. Clarkson emphasizes the fact   ,  that, in addition to being the curator, the appointee of the Canadian  Bankers' Association, he is also interim liquidator, controlled (and  directed by the courts.   The winding-up Act contains full provisions  for examination and investigation1 into* all matters connected with  the affairs of insolvent corporations, and creditors and shareholders  are, therefore, not compelled to seek other methods of procuring  information, but can, as they will appreciate! rely:upon,the court  to see that a proper and full investigation of the affairs,of thejbank "5  is made, particularly as it is absolutely essential that^ such be undertaken in the winding up, no matter whether/there, are other inveatiga?Yr  tions or not.  ��������� "S j J  i'.y>     U--.  / ���������)"k i L  W   *  v -  ���������wi  - >h ���������  It is opportune to ask whether Mr. Travers,-the general manager, ^ 'V������. ������t  ' was the FarmereBaifk, a^wceyemiV!>������*'**������> bank.'apeeaiden^and yi^&tfilA  INTERESTING AKKCUSS.  /  We hear so much ta(lk about "Quebec" holding the balance'of  power and the special "treaty" arrangements enjoyed by that province that it is very desirable that the general public should know  what is the exact nature of the treaty arrangements by which Quebec holds her position. J   ,  We purpose publishing a series of articles during the next few  weeks which will give a history of the facts relating to this question,  The first of the series will appear next week, dealing with the subject  of '' THE TREATY OF PARIS.''  We would urge all our readers to carefully read these articles,  as they will contain many historic facts which are not generally  known, and may serve to prick the bubble of Quebec privilege.   Williamsonvs. Davis  The uncertainty whii'h surrounds the validity of the election  of Aid. Williamson has been a subject of great interest to Ward V.  electors.  As far as the choice of the people goes, there is no doubt of the  election of Aid. Williamson; but it appears he is technically disqualified because he accepted nomination while still a member of the  License Commission.  The citizens understand the question thoroughly���������Aid. William-  'son acted in perfect good faith and is only guilty ^of an oversight.  It is well known that he did not intend attempting to hold the dual  position. We arc forced to admit that, viewed from the. standpoint  of a legal technicality, there is grounds for declaring the seat vacant, but we do not think it .would justify an opponent in taking the  seat on such grounds.  In our opinion there are two courses open to. Candidate Davies  ���������First, to. challenge the seat and then contest it. which is his right,  or to allow Aid. Williamson to take the seat unopposed, accepting  the verdict of the people at. the last contest. In any case, we do not  think it would be wise to slip into the seat if it were decided by the  judge that such a course was possible.  ��������� It is always advisable to give the public a chance to express  their opinions on the question.

PEN  1
This pen is made up of nine birds, the pick of our
whole flock of Rhode Island Reds. Every hen is a
prize winner, from 18 months to two years old, and
will score 92 or over. Heading the pen is a cock
that has won five firsts and two seconds at Ontario
and Guelph before coming to the Coast. He won
second at the Vancouver show this year, being beaten
one-half of a point by a cock imported from the States.
This cock is a perfect type and fine color, but was not
feeling his best when shown, or he would have been
'first....;     i\ ������- ;''   ������',!���'. ���
This peri is made for our winners next year, but

When  buying  any- article,  a  man  naturally  wants
to get the beet possible value for bis money.
If he's buying Roofing, he wants the best Roofing
value offered.
*     But how to get it is the question that naturally arises.-
Difficult? No, it's easy. Just as easy as the proverbial ���
"rolling off a log."
FIRST���Beware  of the  so-called ��� "cheap"  Rooflings.'
A LOW PRICED Roofiing always means a LOW GRADE
Roofing, which will prove many times more costly to you
in the end than if you paid, a reasonable price for your
Roofing material.
SECOND���Don't buy a Rooting WITH A REPUTATION TO-BE MADE. Buy One that has already made a
reputation and proved by -years < of test tbat it's a good
THIRD���Don't forget that the cost of the material
used is often only a small part of the total cost of your
roof. The labor to apply.the Roofing has also to be paid
for, unless you can do the work yourself.
FOURTH���Don't forget the question of repairs, either.
The roof that needs repairing or painting every year or
two will .Aiirays prove an expensive roof to the buyer.

Immigrants have poured into the  country from Great Britain, the United  States, and Europe at the average rate  of nearly 1,000 per day throughout the  year, and it is now expected by experts  that the immigration total during 1911  will reach half a million souls. The  value to the dominion of this enormous  influx of man-power need hardly be  dilated upon. Every province is striving in a patriotic spirit of emulation to  increase its share of the total. This  spirit of aggressively patriotic enter-  piise rules Canada today and sets the  ppce for its wonderful progress toward  great nationhood wilhin the woild's  greatest empire.

Too often the woman of means spends  well  but not wisely, with the result  I that her house looks like a furniture  wareroom    or    an    antique    dealer's  window.   The   sooner  arid   the  more  women realize this;  the more  pretty  homes theer will be.  Nor does it take such a great deal of  time  or  talent.   There  are  arts  and  crafts that require a minimum of each.  Of all the forms of decorative work,  the simplest is stenciling.   One must  be born an artisl to paint. Embroidery  takes much practice and more time,  and it also wears sadly/upon the eyesight. Leather burning and wood carving  require  instruction  and no little  skill.   Stencil   work  takes   less   time  than any of these other sorts of handicraft, no more skill than is to be found  in any average set of fingers, and no  further instruction than is to be found  in these pages. And one beauty of the  stencil is that there is little danger of  overdoing it.  A little embroidery goes  a long way in a room; wood carving  answers   only   a   few   neds , about   a  house;   in  many  rooms  there  is  no  place for leather at all.  But stencling  can  be  used   on   such   a  variety  of  materials, with such caried application  and wide range of color and design,  that you can stencil your house from  the front  door to. the attic window  without letting it become monotonous  or giving a sense of the house, having  been turned out by machinery.  The equipment for stencil work is  very simp'e. It consists of an artist's  brush, the best size and kind being a  No. 16 bristle laying-on brush. It is  convenient, but not absolutely to have  two brushes when more than one  color is to be used, as this salev the  washing of the brushes while you are  at work.  For all soft'materials tapestry dyes  are best, and they can be bought at  twelve cents the bottle. Other dyes  will do, but they are likely to fade  i  the natural flower, may be indulged  in.the bedroom, where flower patterns  are always fresh and dainty.   ���������  Of  course  you  will  cut  your  own  stencil!   Take either a piece of press  board or any pasteboard or stiff paper  that  will  not  crumple  or  crease  or  turn up at the edges.   If you have a  perforated  pattern,  lay  it on  top of  your stencil board or paper and trace  it   with   stamping   powder, ilf   your  design is merely������������������ drawn- on thin paper,  trace it on the stencil board .with tracing paper in between. After removing  ihe pattern, it is wel to go over the  lines and make them very distinct and  true.        .���������-.'������������������  Then take a sharp penknife and cut  cut the pattern, following the lilies  very carefully. When this is done,  yciir design' will show in the holes.  To be sure that your dye will not run  beyond the edge of the stencil, it is a  good idea to take a piece of soap or  beeswax and run it all around the  edge of the stencil pattern. This will  serve to drive the color back when it  ccmes in contact with the edge and  prevent blurring.  And now you are ready to work,:  with your stencil and jelly, glasses full  of color, your brushes and your bowl  of water all - ranged. on: the biggest  table in the house, and yourself buttoned up in a long apron to keep from  dyeing your, clothes. To protect the  table, spread a big sheet of heavy  paper or cardboard over it. Do not  use a cloth, as tais will make the  colors run In the material you are  stenciling.  A very good thing to begin on is a  pair of bedroom curtains. Perhaps you  have sighed for a pair of those pretty  French crepe or madras curtains with  the flowers scattered over them, and a  price mark anywhere from three to  Afteen dollars the pair: For the cost  of the cheapest pair, you can curtain  al lthe windows you have in your  bedroom, not with an Imitation of  these, but with something as pretty  in effect and in Just as good taste;  and you will have the gratefil feeling  Cor. 18th Ave. & Main St.  PHONE 6932  We are now offering the balance of our Heaters at  T  r  We have a few left and the prices are lowest in the city.

It is a good  idea to put in the dye as much powdered ilbumen as you can life on the  tip of a knife, as this helps to set the  color. '.  For heavy fabrics a better medium  is the regular oil paint that comes  in tubes for artists' use. This paint  must be thinned with turpentine until  it can be readily applied on the material used and dries upon it without an  ally look. Any gloss will spoil the  effect, and the right quantity of turpentine prevents this. Ordinarily the  proportion to a' quarter of a four-  ince tube of paint; but you must be  governed in this by the depth of  color desired,' as naturally the more  turpentine added the lighter the shade  In buying colors you must get   darker  out having to consider what they cost  you.  If you want to be very economical,  try cheesecloth at eight or ten cents  the yard.

In doing only a small piece of stencil  work, it is cheaper and better to buy  the desired'shades of dye or paint with  allqwanceTfpr turpentine in the latter.  But tor anyone who does a considerable amount, there is economy in buy-  in j- only the three primary colors, red, |  blue and yellow. From .these all other  colors and shades likely to be needed  can be obtained- by mixing. By adding  water to the red and blue dye, you can  secure any shade to the softest pink  and baby blue.   The turpentine does  the same with oil paints.  By mixing blue and. red you have  purple, and this diluted gives the  violet, lavender _ and mauve shades.  Blue and yellow make the greens, a,nd  blue, yellow and red the browns. A  very -little experimenting will make  the colors come right; but if any difficulty is experienced, the sure way is  to buy the exact shades.  A   very   convenient   receptacle   for  your colors is a common jelly glass.  In case any color is left over tor use  at another time, you can put the cover  on the the color will not change, and  it will be kept free of dust.   While  working it is,well to have a bowl of  clear water standing on theTtable to  dilute the dyes or to wash the brush.  So much for brush and colors. Now  "for the stencil itself.   The matter of  design is no less simple. Can you draw-  one yourself?  If so, so much the better.    In this way there will be that  much more individuality expressed in  .your work. Perhaps71ike the girl who  'Iwas a3ked if she could play tha piano,  you' do not know because you have  never tried7 If you have never tried,  the chances are that you cannot the  first time, and the few cents a design  costs will not be a waste of money.  If you want to try, however, a good  way is to trace on thin paper a design  from, some piece of cretonne or art  silk.  Some ol these are very good for  stencil work.   7        '-'   " '<'���������  -Just-a word here as to the selection.

If you are very wise, you have  already tried your rdesig nand colors  on a small piece of the same material  so you know exactly how it is going  to look when it is finished. And always  remember not to dip your brush too  deep in the color. There is danger of  having it too wet.  When   the   stencil. is   securely   in  place/apply the dye or paint with the  brush in al the open spaces' of tne  3tencil, green for the leaves and pink  for  the  flower.   For  the  border  you  will of course  have but one section  of the design, the border being a repetition of the one form.  After making one section you muet pick up your  stencil and move it along, being careful each time to see that it joins properly the figure already stenciled. It is  well to wipe thecstencil every time you  lift it from the cloth.  The carnation is, of course, merely  a suggestion. The iris is good for a  room where lavender is the color preferred; tulips and poppies. give a  variety of color, red, yellow, pink; and  there is the morning glory or the gentian for the blue room.  Cheesecloth makes the cheapest  curtain. But for a very little more one  may use scrim or Swiss of organdie,  .though the latter does not stand wear  and washing well and is, therefore,  less practical for curtains. For a Dutch  window in any part of the. house unbleached muslin is very good, and a  particularly artistic effect can be had  on this material if the design lis  stenciled in dull colors.  Already, no doubt, you have forseen  the further and almost limitless possibilities of the stencil.

An important decision against the  shareholders of the defunct Ontario  Bank was rendered in November, by  the Judicial Committee of the Privy  Council. In consequence of the decision  a double liability call of 95 per cent, on  the Ontario Bank shareholders was immediately authorized by the official  referee.  During the present session of parliament the Bank Act will undergo its  decennial revision, but it is not anticipated that any drastic changes will be  made. The matter has been dealt with  at length in the past eight issues of  The Monetary Times. There is a  growing feling that the building up of  large reserve funds is somewhat of a  fad. In view of the need of increased  bank capital, our banks may one day  reduce their reserve and increase their  capital by the amount of the reduction.  This is considered by some authoiities  a better plan than issuing new capital,  paid in often at 200, when the same  circulating power might be obtained by  merely transferring some of the rest  account to capital. The question of  outside inspection of banks also it  likely to be discussed and inspection  may be vested with the Canadian  Bankers' Association.

It i������  admitted on all sides that the Net>-  Malfh'isian notions and the voluntary  limitation of the number of children  have already spread to the lower classes, and that there is no possibility of  fighting by legislative nier.sme,  against a wide-spread evil."  While there is some consolation in  the fact that "under the better sanilsr:  conditions of our own times the  mortality of infants has been reduced  considerably," yet the rush of the poi-  alation to, the great towns, especially  in Ire'and, has been a sad hindrance  to the bringing up of large families.

WOMEN  AND WORK.  ���������.p.<.r- mY Editor  Permit me to ask through the  columns of your valuable organ "Western Call," why in the name of common  humanity there is ho agitaticn with  regard to "shorter hours" for w^men?.  We hear so much about "shorter, time''  for men, whilst the subject is utter%  ignored where women are concerned  4.re women physically more ab'e tc  endure longer hours? Which is ?hc  weaker sex? Do the men go home tc  make bread, or sew, or do the washinf  after the doors of the factory or the  laundry close? Why should frii/  women have to go to work in thr  onndriVo t>* 7 a. tp. on vcold drrl-  mornings which facilitates such accidents as the one which recently occurred when a poor woman fell of  'he car and died soon afterwards'  Surely economic conditions are no'  yet ideal by any means. Is there nr  one humane and disinterested enoug'  to take up thi* question?  F. S. HY  It 18 most, remarkable that women  are more thoughtful, and respectful in  the presence of a theatrical or acrobatic troupe of performers than in the  church, in front of the preacher. The  "House of God" has less regard shown  than the opera. Why is this so?  The answer is very simple.'   Ladies  are not cne whit more thoughtful in  the theatre than In the church.    Put  in one case they take off their  big  j bats, simply because they are forced to  ido so.   They must remove their sight-  ! obstructing headgear ������ir get  outside.  This is a rough and ready way of stating a fact.  In the churches, the ladies are per-  j mitted to worship their big hats, and  ' their vain selves, even though many  are inconvenienced tbereby. It is a  mean form ot self-worship, a most  -elfish act. There is no use in say-  ing it is an act of thoughtlessness, f"������  it is not. Not a lady inTthe land, wesi ���������  ing a big hat. vlio has an ounce oT  wit, but has often thought ot the matter, and admr.s that it is a most un-  iady like act.  This very day, I was at church, aud  at no time could I see the minister. A  small part of the pulpit and about half  tbe choir were visible.  It is not only rude, but it is impertinent for any woman to sUok iu  front of me, or any other man. half a  square yard of feathers, ribbons ai.d  other decorations.  Business men will not permit this  folly and impertinence in the treat re.  Why should it be permitted m the  churches? At times I feel like walking out, and remaining absent from  church until this senseless folly is  stopped. Are church managements le?s  up to business and good sense than  heatre managers?  It would" be a good Christian act if  the women of-Vancouver would show  that they are not permanently and  helplessly selfish in this matter. 7  B. Odium.  341,580, of 2% per cents. (16 Vic.)
