VOLUME II  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER,   British Columbia, JAN.  20,    1911.  THE THIRD PARTY IDEA  The oft-repeated demand for a "third party" in Canada is  again agitating the minds of many in the east. It is claimed that  both old parties are irrevocably given over to the "Quebec craze."  It is claimed that both are constantly bidding for the support of  Quebec, bound down by the belief that the balance of power is centered in that province.  Disgusted with this subserviency to such a notion a large number of the electorate are unable to decide whieh is their party, and  seem to think that the only hope for relief is in the third party.  In this they are mistaken. A third party would complicate, without  solving matters.   What is needed is a '"'policy."  Canada is rapidly approaching a crisis in her political history.  We have been drifting along in a prosperous and selfishly happy  condition for the past ten or twelve years, with a little to mar the  content of the rank and hie of the people. We have had, as stated,  prosperity within and peace without.  The time is rapidly coming, however, when we shall be called  upon to decide between a continuance of this happy-go-lucky method  of national life, temporarily, and a deeided stand for Imperial  solidarity.  What we need in Canada is not a third party, but a party with  an "Imperial Policy."   This policy is the natural heritage of the  Conservative party and if the leaders of that party in Canada do not  .soon recognize this supreme demand, then there is only oue thing  [to be done and that is to get new leaders.  There are two ways by which these lethargic leaders in the  I effete east can be made to realize the utter folly of pinning their  Kfaith to Quebec as their only hope to gain or hold power, and that  l js to either bring them west and let them view our great expanse of'  {prairie and wealth of forest and mineral, and to breathe the spirit  'of the west, or to choose leaders in the west. The west will predominate ultimately. Quebec's day is done, her sun is setting, as  (far as dominence is concerned.'    <    >  Indeed, the idea is more than a mere day-dream.   The premier  [of our own Province, the Hon." Richard Mcbride, has repeatedly been  spoken of as a possible leader, for the conservative cause.   We can  |easily imagine if such were to be' the ease that he would soon find  limself surrounded at Ottawa with a following of sturdy westerners, who would quite counter-balance the over estimated power  )f Quebec. , -  The time is now opportune for the conservative party o  Canada to awaken from their long sleep, and with their ranks wel  mrged from the corruption of the early nineties, to formulate  >olicy which will win the support of every true imperialist.  Reciprocity is more than,a mere theory, it is now a factor���������  rherejs Borden? . ,   " .    ..   ^ 4        '  Imperialism is not mere sentiment,>it is becoming an imperative'  lecessity again, where is Borden f ly - -  'Borden' is a nice man." "Borden is above' reproach, as "far as  srsonal character, is concerned'.   He has done���������much to remove the  btigma of reproach from the name of the party���������more perhaps than  T*o: J3. Foster has done���������but has :he been a-auecessiu any other  irayt -He is entirely committed, body and soul, to the "Quebec"1  policy.   He is absolutely at sea on Imperialism.   He has made no  tatement on Reciprocity.   He prefers to wait until Laurier has  lade hjg announcement, before showing his hand, and that he will be  intent, with the help of that chronic kicker, Geo. Foster, to oppose,  opose and again oppose. -  We are getting tired of opposition. We want a leader who is  ^rge enough to oppose and construct as well.  Sir John A. McDonald was a good "opposer," but he was a  etter leader.  There is now the greatest opportunity- facing the conservatives  Canada to seize and control the destinies of the country, which  is confronted any people in recent times, "Imperialism and Tarrif  Jeform."  The   present   Ottawa   administration   have "played  with    the  f>rmer and dread attacking the latter.   Surely there are men large  tough in Vision in the rank of the conservative party to assume  ^is responsiblep osition. c n  A policy having these two planks would sweep Canada from  hd^to_endMinehiding���������Q^  >liey of a controlling, but separate power in Quebec, we would  Ion see here one of a federation of provinces on equal basis, with  "is racial line of demarcation wiped out. -  The challenge has been thrown out by the very force of  l^cumstances, who will be "The Man"?  r  \  EXPRESS COMPANY RATES.  Another item of distinct credit to the Railway Commission of  [nada is the report and order ^regarding the Express Companies  (iCanada. - ���������  That this part of the country's transportation privileges has  Isn much abused is evident from the statements in the report,  |uch says in part:  "The Canadian companies have been greatly over-capatilr/cd.  the. ease of the-Canadian Express Company, the Grand Trunk  Lilway Company, paid $660,000 for the stock when the assets were  led at $60,000.   Now the assets have grown, to $212,719, and the  pitalization is $3,000,000"  'The whole business of express as it is. carried on in Canada  ild go on just as it does without the existence of any express  Inpanies  at  all  by  simply  substituting  railway  employees,, for  press employees and making express traffic part of their,work."  '���������"���������After'making every allowance for all the contingencies we  lYthink of, we are -impressed with the fact that-the earnings of the  |lway companies upon express thaffic are upon the whole excessive  " should be reduced."        7   7  "It is apparent," says Judge Mabee, "that at the theshold the  jadiari companies were greately over-capatilized. The assets of  [Canadian Express were $60,000, when the Grand Trunk paid  '0,000 for it;the extra $600,000 presurnbly being for the franchise.  Y$60,000 of assets has grown to $212,719. and there is $3,000,000  stock outstanding in the hands of trustees for the Grand Trunk  |wa'y. 7Now in fact all there is in the-company in tangible assets  |epresent the $3,000,000 outstanding is the $212,719. Y  'In the.casejof.the Dominion Express Company, so far as can  jscertained, $24,000 is all the cash that was ever paid into the  [pany uponvaccount of capital stock, and for this $1,000,000 of  -up stock was originally issued. The assets now stand at some-  ������g less than $600,000, yet $2,000,000 of fully paid-up stock is  standing. Cut short of all the trimmings the situation is that the  ���������per by express makes a eontractV with the railway company  \ugti the agency of the express company. . . The whole busi-  of express could go on just as it does without the existence of  j express company at all by simply substituting railway employees  express employees and letting the railways take the whole of the  * in the first instance."  No. 37  J^<HMS^M^HHt"H������t������H������#4HS������K^v^  -: Card of Thanks :-  A LDERMAN STEVENS desires  jLJL to take this opportunity to express his thanks to the electors of  Ward Vfor their hearty support in the  recent civic election, in returning him  with such a handsome majority.  *  HjftMjXjHjHJt  CIVIC ELECTION RESULTS  We may be pardoned for feelinfr a little just pride in the results  of the Vancouver City elections. In fact we are inclined to "crow"  a little over it.    ,  In the election of Commissioners. Findley and Crehan, we claim  a distinct victory for the "Call." Mr. Edgett was conceded to be  the strongest man up to the time the "Call" undertook to educate  the public along this line, and the net results of our campaign was  the utter defeat of that gentleman. The next difficulty to overcome  was an attempt to split the vote of Findlay and Crehan, by bringing  out Mr. McBride and, much against our will, we were compelled to  oppose Mr. McBride, whom we held in high personal esteem, but  it was the only way to defeat Edgett. and in this we were well supported by the public.  In the matter of the plebiscites, all three were originated by the  editor of this paper. The question of limiting the height of buildings to ten stories was first brought up in council by Aid. Stevens last  June and well supported in the columns of this paper, but the  council at that time turned it down.^Itwas later introduced by Aid.  Hepburn, and again we supported the measure, but,it was turned  down by the council, but it was decided to take a plebiscite, which  was carried by a large majority. ' Y'v  The exemption of churches from taxation Was also strongly opposed by this journal, and hy the*<Ht6r"iri bis capacity as an-Alderman, and in this we have been sustained by over-whelming vote.  The Commission form of ^Government was first introduced by  Aid. Stevens in his resolution "Greater Vancouver." but was turned  down by the council, but has been caried by the electorate. - In this  case, also, we have constantly urged in these columns for this system of civic control:  So'we repeat there is reason for a measure of pride on our part  for the splendid success of these measures which have been originated and advocated by this journal aud its editor so assiduously.  The large majority Mayor Taylor secured at the polls came as  a surprise to even his most sanguine supporters. It was thought that  his election, would be by-a majority well within 500, when, as a  matter of faet, it went to nearly 1700. This can be attributed largely  to the system of personal attacks which was adopted throughout the  campaign by those opposed to Mayor Taylor.  The contest just passed will go down in history as the most bitter  on record, but will also serve as a lesson to those who would hoist  themselves into office by tearing down their opponents character.  No man should make a personal attack unless he is willing and able  to substantiate his charge.  =-^^=In-W-a>d-I^Aldtr&^  to his persistence in interfering in the affairs of candidates in other  wards, and his efforts to defend the city engieer.   Ex-Aid. Hepburn  is a most energetic worker on committees, and in many respects,-  a valuable member of council.  Aid. Rogers and Ramsey were elected in this ward.  Ward II, elected Old Crowe and Campbellby acclamation.  In Ward III. Old Enright headed the poll with Ex-Alderman;  Kirkpatrick as his mate for the next year.  In Ward IV. Aid. MacPherson Was returned with a large vote,  with Mr. King as a colleague, out of a field of five, the redoubtable  Siemson coming last. .���������"'���������<= "  In Ward V. Aid. Stevens led with a vote of 1189. the highest  ever polled in this city for an alderman, with Geo, E. Williamson  second, with a vote of 87.1, with "Billy" Davis a good third, on a vote  of 623.  Tn Ward VI. Messrs. McMaster and Cameron were elected out, of  seven contestants. Aid. White was defeated by"'about 30 votes. In  this ward the hottest contest of the campaign was fought.  The  trustees  elected  were  Messrs.   Brydon  Jack,   Duke  Stewart.  and  "The Western Call" and its gifted editor have  won an enviable distinction in unearthing and exposing irregularities of corporations and men entrusted with public interests. To do this successfully has required both courage, ability and skill, all7  of which have been exhibited in large measure.  Tlie paper not only makes war on all graft  and selfishness, but champions everything good and  honorable.  "The Call" is welcomed by the undersigned,  and will have his heartiest support as long as it continues in the course which has placed it in the front  of our city's best advocates of fair dealing and civic  righteousness.  G. E. McBRIDE.  CITIZENS' ASSOCIATION  The Ward and similar associations are steadily performing  work of "far-reaching character, even beyond the expectations of the  most optimistic. For many years these institutions have been  quietly multiplying and extending the scope of their operations until  they have become a sort of ready-to-hand people's sparliament. Almost every Ward in the city has one or more of these associations.  And the leaders are men who have learned how to place their views  before their comrades, and compare notes, in a manner that would  do honor to well experienced legislators. ',,--���������>  Of the many associations, the natural and logical outcome is  the Central Executive of the Ratepayers' 7.ssociations." This body  is composed of five or six delegates sent from each of the primary  LudioH. Those delegates do not iuterfere with matters that properly  belong to a single district of the city. But as soon as any topic of"  general interest is proposed, and is so adjudged, then it is admitted  for discussion. If it be of sufficient importance, it is examined most  carefully, and at last is passed on to the City Council lor consideration and legislation. ���������      ���������      i.      ,. , -  The work of these associations in the past, and more particularly the work of the Central Executive, has been of so much value  as to have been frequently recognized by the various councils of  late years. '   '  It is almost surely,and readily admitted that the late vote by  the electorate in favour of Civic Rule by commission, was carried  as the result of the many discussions in the various associations _  alluded to above. .     .        \   .    a ������  And in this particular case, I think the palm must be given to "  the .Ward Six Association.   This body*' in addition to the Central  Executive, gave very considerable time and attention to three forms  of proposed'Civic Rule. '  Another year has got well under way, and the men of public  spirit, who are not elected to the Council, or to any of the other  public bodies, may. if they will, do a lot of good, and help forward  the growth and best management of our splendid city.  v Let the Ward Associations organise,' and give - their best endeavours to their particular districts, and when anyt matter effects '  all or most of the wards, the delegates to the Central Executive can  be instructed to bring the question before,the chief body in the  c������ty.    '        , '      ",,;,"  */  '     7 ���������  And, by the way, now is the time for these district bodies to  appoint their delegates tp the Central Executive if they have not done  so already. ,   \      T/ ' .  Questions pertaining to the schools/parks, sewers, streets, an-  nexatioii movements, and others of importance, will require onr  best and most- patient consideration, if as public-spirited men, we are  ;  to do bur duty.. Every elected body inr.the'city,invthe'pts^.liii ���������'  given great consideration to the work^ arid propositions st ^theV  Central Executive.

We have religiously refrained from commenting on the investigation now proceeding, regarding the Chinese Immigration Department in this city, on the grounds that, all parties should have  a chance to be heard before any public expression of opinion i������-  given as to their actions. We believe, however, that sufficient facts  are to hand to warrant us in making a few remarks on the subject.  Enough has been said under oath to warrant the demand that  those persons who hold high positions in the party he called to the  stand and be subjected to a most searching examination. The name  of Mr. Robert Kelly has been mentioned quite frequently by various  witnesses and we understand'that Mr. Kelly has found it convenient  to visit California "for his health." Mr. Kelly is recognized as  the "Boss" of the liberal party of this district and has long enjoyed the honor of dispensing the patronage of this constituency and  there is no doul t many interesting facts stored up in the memory  Mr. Kelly, which v^ould be useful to the commission and interesting  W.th.e_pnblic.asrwell..J.TheiHon.^Wm^-Templema.n-h88^1i^7g<>ceive^__  "honorable mention" by one or two of the witnesses,which in our  opinion would warrant his being summoned to give evidence.  Another point open for criticism is the method of handling the  finances. This alone is a public scandal, and sufficient tp rouse the  indignation of the electors; According to the evidence, Collector  Bowell and Landing Waiter Aitkin would receive large sums of  Government Money and deposit it in their own personal bank'accounts, and'then, periodically issue cheeks to the Department.  This we repafc is scandalous and demands, not only serious investigation, but that those responsible for such methods should be  removed from office without mercy. It is too absurdly riduculous  altogether. Just imagine any man having tlie unmitigated gall  to receive large sums of Public Money and deposit it in his own  private account. That is not the worst feature, but we are calmly  told that "no check was kept of the amounts collected.". Such actions and; practices as these are what bring about the ruin of many  persons and the disgrace of public bodies. ���������  -.  Here-is a sample of the evidence of Inspector Busby:  "I found that on August!4, 3905," he wrote in his report,."thattwo China-  men from the Ramona, running from here to Seattle and return, had paii  il.fi poll tax of $500 each or $1,000 in all. I was told by,,Cashier Greer that  Collector Bowell had deposited his sum to the credit"1 of the customs depait-  ment, but the cashixr of the Bank of British North America said that Mr.  Bowel) had depesited the $1,000 to his personal account. When I called  jw*r. BoweM's attention to this he immediately wrote a cheque for the sum  to the ci :-dit o: the customs department.  ".T icund, too, that Chief Landing Waiter Aitken also collected ?cme  $ir>,0f.C ������ud that while he re-checked it ail back yet in one. instance he retained, to his own account for eighteen days the siim of $1,000.'  There seems to be no doubt as to the existence of a gigantic  system of fraud in connection with the Department.'and'no meivy  should be sho-.ven to the guilty parties, no matter who they may''be.  Graft is graft, ^whether it is by a ehiue.se interpreter, a would-be  senator.a .minister of the crown, or a publie official; and''in the interest .of decent government and public safety they should all be treated alike.   There should ibe no ''respecting of persons."        ������������������).,...'  CHARGE THAT JESUITS AIDED NATIONALISTS.

and said:

Now. I'm going to lick you again."
And he planted a hard blow on Willie's little stomach.
Willie gasped, but instead of striking back he extended his pit-
to Jones.
"Here," he said in a kindly voice, "I'll give you this. I make
you a present of it."
Jack, in glad amazement, fell upon the pie greedily, and it had
soon disappeared.
"Gosh, it was good!" he said. "What did you give it to me
for?"    '
"Because you struck me," said the heaper of the coals.
Instantly Jack hauled off and struck him again. "Now go and
get another pie," he said.

A child-loving man was on his way to Denver to transact soi
important business.   During the afternoon he noticed, in the opj
site section of the Pullman, a sweet-faced, tired-appearing woe
traveling with four small children.   Peeling sorry for the mot!
he soon made friends with the little ones.
Early the next morning he heard their eager,;; questions behl
the'curtains of the berths, and the patient "Yes' dear," of
mother as she tried to dress them; and looking out he saw a si
white foot protruding beyond the opposite curtain.   Reaching acr^
the aisle he took bold of the large toe and began to recite:
"This little pig went to market.
This little pig stayed at home;
This little pig had a piece of roast beef,
This little pig had none; 7
This little pig cried'wee-wee'allthe way home."
"How is that?" inquired the eager man.
Then the foot was suddenly withdrawn, and a cold, quite ro\
said:   "I should think it was quite sufficient. . V  ��������� ������������������'���������'������������������''��������������������������� "y''..^'?-~'-'::y.-y^fy.'.!'-^ '���������.

MOOSE JAW���������-At a meeting of managers of the: chartered banks of the  city held yesterday afternoon it was  definitely decided to start a clearing  house In Moose Jaw.  In another column we print a letter with an extract from a  Belfast paper which describes an incident which one would think  impossible under British rule. It is the story of a protestant woman  marrying a Romau Catholic nun. they live iu harmony for several  years and have two little ones, when the priest, succeeds, in persuadiug  the husband that he is not reaily married, because! a Presbyterian  minister tied the knot, and indv.ces him to steal the two babes from  their mother and then to desert her. The stoi-y is heart-rendering  and would rouse the indignation in the soul of any man who was  not an absolute fanatic.  .There is one point whieh is made very clear and that 4s the  need of a direct communication to His Holiness, the Pope, to the  effect that his "decrees," or "bulls.'' have no power over our laws  and that lie keep his hands off the Uritish constitution.  This journal has no uriticisn. to offer of the 'Ionian church, as far  as its religious belief is concerned, and holds in deep respect th  adherants of that church, but when the Roman Pont if, undertakes  to declare that all who are married according !<> British laws, other  than by a priest, are, living in open sin and that their children are  illegitimate, theu it is time that every self'respecting citizen, ho  matter what his religious belief, should pronounce his protest iu no  uncertain terms. It is also the,;duty-of our Government to see that  the dignity of our constitution be maintained by "a proper recognition  of our laws by all who claim'their protection.  .  This disgusting practice of scaring-and.-worrying those who  have contracted a marriage with those of the Roman Catholic faith,  this breaking up homes and flinging defiance at our laws and most  sacred traditions, is becoming altogether too frequent and is offensive to Catholic as well as Protestant citizens.

Sir Gilbert Parker, M. P., presided on Tuesday at a meeting of  the members of the Royal Colonial Institution, held at the Hotel  Metropolc.   .  Lieuti-General Sir J. Bevan, speaking on the necessity for au  Imperial Parliament, said that ore thing stood out clearly before .all  others���������that the Parliament of Great Britain was unable to cope  with the mass of purely local affairs, even if it sat. throughout the  greater part: of the year. How then could it carry out efficiently  Imperial affairs, such, as thego'vmment and defense of our great  Empire? If the work of the BrUish Pariiament was to be lessened,  why not, blind oyer to an Imperii I l-arlUtnieut all those duties whicii  Were common to the whole Empire, and which now occupied so  much time?- Any form of closer, constitutional union < must, in the  irst plaee. be carried out between Great Britain and Canada.  Australia, *Ni'\v Zealand. South Africa, and Newfoundland, and at  # future date it might p-rhaps he possible to include the Crown  vJ'jI:::lvS, Iinlia. and the other Dependencies and Protectorates of the  Empire.  ,  An Imperial Parliament was required to complete the union of  the EmpirJT by giving the Dominions beyond the Seas not only a  voice in determining Imperial policy but a real and effective share in  the privileges and responsibilities of empire and, in the second  plaee. for the defence of the Empire, for diplomacy (including treaties nnd negotiations with foreign governments), for Imperial trade  tnd   commerc.', for the government, of the dependencies and pro-  >������torat"s. for the migration of the people within the Empire, and  for all those other questions which were common to the whole Empire.  '���������'"���������   Defence of the Empire did not' mean the passive power of resist-  :rig the atttt<;ksl,of;jintenemy's,in,eet or .providing troops to resist an  '-hvasion���������though* this, of course, it must be able to do, \t it was  fl wished to preserve. i|idepeudeuee.   It /meant that, in addition to an  * ill-powerful', fleet, there must be sufficient land force to co-operate  with the nttvol' forces, fand, if, hot by our own forces alone, in  conjunctioriJS'iwith those of other nations with whom'we might be  ;n alliance.^to follow nu victories gained at sea, to be able to crush  the ,enemy and dictate terms,of peace. .  The general opinion appeared to lie that, if Great Britain lost  the command ,of the sease. the Oversea Dominions might still continue to exist as independent countries working for their own  separate destinies.   TVs, however, would be impossible.  It was a fact, that no Government had yet adopted a policy towards Empire trade which involved the fostering of Empire industries, but this could be done by an Imperial Minister working in an  Imperial Parliament, and in the matter of the migration of the  people there was a great, field fo ran Imperial administrator, because  ���������io l/������������al Government could deal with the question as a whole.  The diffienltv of Jth������ closer constitutional union of the British  Empire were as nothing when compared with those which were  ������vem������me in the federation of the United States of the confederation  ���������������f 1hr> German Empire, when all the independent States of Germany  were brought tosfi������th"r to form a union for the protection of the  ��������� -*a!ui nnd th" carp of the welfare of the German people, A common  .lartger, was the most, powerful factor for bringing unions into being,  ajid_juclvjjj|^  thre'atenirisr toYM other-country7 the heart of th^T^mplrer^We^^we"  to wait till the question solved itself?

The public generally will generally welcome the announcement  that a Royal Commissioner has Iieen appointed by the Provincal  Government, to investigate the conditions which obtain in the Vancouver public schools.  An evening contemporary, the Province, has frequently made  reference to the actions of the schio! board in no very complimentary terms and this is what has h<l to the appointment of the Commission,     ���������     ' ���������     -  Now that this action has been taken, we trust that the investigation will be thorough and searching, for the citizens have a right  to know the exact condition wli'eh obtains in onr public schools.  Then again, this particular branch of the administration is of paramount importance. If our educational system is demoralised, it is  hard to estimate the possible darger to the rising generation.  The investigation should not only be for the purpose of discovering any mal-administration, hut also to suggest improvements  in the system of management.  There has frequently occurr<d strained relations between t'-e  superintendent and some of the teachers,- it is bard to avo'd such  things where so many persons are concerned, but it is nothing bir  fair that, where such exist, that both .sides should be heard and th<  fault located, and an equitable adjustment made.

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 10%. 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 me is 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 ind 8,256 feet of deep water frontage on Burrard Inlet. This property  ii worth at least $3,000,000.00 and we only owe $500,000.00. We have  many other assets which we have not space here to speak of, but if you will  call or write, we shall be only too pleased to explain.  Iu short, with our guarantee, and the Government at our hack, you can-  not do belter than invest, for you are sure of your interest, and ture of a large  profit two years hence, when we sell our lands. Poes this seem reasonable  to you? Have you got a little money, which you would invest, if you were  only sure? Will you coma and see ui? Ash the banks or Rracfrtreefs 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.

O! all the inquiries I could and found the  granitoid pavement there in good shape  aAd/wearing well, although some of it  is laid under conditions that are  against it.  I visited the city hall and was told  there that it "was good pavement giving good satisfaction, proof of which  lay in the fact that the City Council  had just let the granitoid- company  their third contract, one mile in  length.  I  interviewed   four of the business  stores on one street, an "dashed ��������� them |  what their opinion was from a business j  standpoint,   one man said they found  it noisy, the other three said it was all |  that could  be desired.    One of them  said   he  had  done  business  for  some j  years  in  Toronto    on   a wood    block;  street, and he preferred granitoid;    I  wrote back to,the president and acting  secretary    of the    association, telling  that if a petition signed by 50 per cent,  of the value of the property interested  be lodged with the City Clerk within  a stated time after the Court of "Revision is held it makes all our work  and effort for the past six months of  no avail and puts the finishing of the  street back to an indefinite time. Mr,  Woodward is, I hear, on foot again  with such a petition which he will no  doubt present to you for signature.  This statement is now made so that  you may be able to use good judgment  oh any course you may adopt on that  event. But if you wish to have the  street finished and put in good shape,  do not sign any more petitions. If you  think it is alright as it is, sign it. My  desire has been', as Secretary of the  above Association aud a- property  owner on the street, along with Mr.  Higinbotham and others who have done  The Royal Drug Co., Ltd.  PRESCRIPTION DRUGGISTS  I850 PARK DRIVE PHONE 6167  COR. 3rd AVENUE, EAST NIGHT PHONE R2148  good service, to give effect to the wish  ������!of those who signed the first petition  them the result of my inquiries, and !  ^ )   1075 10th Ave. Bast,  Jan. 9th, 1911.  Sir or Madam:���������  Now that Granitoid has been adopted by the City Council as the permanent pavement to be laid on Broadway from Granville to Ontario streets,  and has by them been sent to a court  of revision, and as any petition now  signed against it will only have the  effect of putting off indefinitely the  finishing of the street, it seems fitting  that the owners of property thereon  should have a full statement as to why  granitoid was ( adopted and' the steps  taken since to bring'about the present  state of affali8.  First, as to why it was adopted. A  delegation from the city half was sent  back East last,year to investigate on  behalf of the city various street works,  and among others, permanent paving.  Tbe members of thai delegation were  Aid. Crowe, Aid. McMillan and the  <jity engineer.  On presenting their report to the  ' Council tbey spoke very favorably of  granitoid pavement, some tbey saw  having been laid eleven years and  Still looked In good shape, although  subject to heavy traffic.  Tbe question, -of Broadway being  Vayed having been under discussion  several times in the .early part of tbe  fear, it was finally brought to a bead  at a meeting of the South Side Improvement Association, of which Mr.  ��������� Thos. Storey is President, and I have  tbe pleasure of being Secretary. *,  This meeting' was held on April  21st, 1910, when, after the ordinary  business bad teen' disposed of, tbe  paving of Broadway . was discussed.  Ex-Alderman John McMillan was pres-  ent and gave the meeting a clear, defi-  nlte statement as to what he had seen  ��������� In "the Eastern cities, and put himself  on record as being opposed to any  other,paving than granitoid being put  on the street.  Several photographs were shown  and questions asked, and/after a full  discussion, on which the opinion was  expressed that wood block paving did  not fully meet the situation in this  city owing to climatic conditions, and  considering the report of! the civic  delegation, it was unanimously decided to adopt granitoid, every property owner present there and then  signing the petition for its adoption,  it being understood tbat Messrs. Hig-  ginbotham would circulate It for further signatures.  This was done and it was duly presented to the Board of Works early  in July.  At a later meeting of the South  Side Improvement Association held on  May- 19th, 1910, Messrs. McMillan,  Butchart, Higinbotham, Davis and  myself were deputed to wait on the  B. C.  Electric Co. to  ask them that  said the only objection! I could raise  was\ that it was a little more noisy  than wood block or iasphalt. Our petition was duly brought before the  Board of Works and certified by the  City Clerk, but as at that meeting  only two or three of the members  were present, it was laid over till a  full meeting. On my return from  England early in October I went to the  Board of Works and asked for some  action to be taken, as we wanted it  put through so that the, work could  be done in fine weather in the summer and so get a good job.  Some of the aldermen wished to  have a concrete pavement, but to this  we objected, and at the next meeting  of the Board of Works the engineer  was instructed to recommend granitoid. This was done, and on November 15th that recommendation was  brought in.  By this time the City Comptroller  found he could not give his certificate  for the work till the 'money by-laws  were arranged for by, the Council.  This having in the meantime been  done, he gave notice on November  29th that he could pass the work. So  the Board of Work's at that meeting  instructed the City Engineer to send  his recommendation of November 15th  for granitoid to a Court of Revision.  Just before this date a petition had  been circulated by R. Woodward" (who,  according to his own statements, expected' to be' paid by the Carbollneum  people who would have to supply the  wood blocks), now came in asking for  wood block pavement.  Woodward' had made various statements to'gain bis ends, some of them  grossly inaccurate. He has written  under bis own signature withdrawing  one statement' and personally apologized, to another, besides making  others likely to be misleading (although be' has. no property on* the  street, this<-also on his own confession). * He also mads the statement  tbat the granitoid people .were an  American outfit end would have to  bring tools, men, plant, etc., from over  the line and In consequence the,money  would alBO go In tbe same direction.  Tbe gentleman to whom be made this  statement, was rightly loyal to his  town and province and got' face to  face with;the agent of the granitoid  firm and asked if these things were so.  But was told plainly tbat he was  Canadian born, tbat all plant, men,  horses and material would be got right  here, and that lt_was_ purely_a_ local  product���������everything entering    into it  believing they did so in good.faith and  thus get the work going ahead. There  is an insinuation abroad that I am getting paid for my labor. I can only give  this an emphatic denial and think my  character with the people I have lived  among for four years will bear me out  in that regard. In conclusion I hope  the property owners on the street will  show their appreciatioiii of the work  we have done, on their fcehalf by not  signing any petition and put the street  back. The appropriation is passed for  the sewer and we hope the work will  get done at the earliest possible date  I am, yours sincerely,  WILLIAM W. WINN.  We begin our second year in Grandview, January 15th, 1911, and  wish to thank oar friends and patrons for a very hearty support  in the past year.    This success we^feel sure is deserved on account  of constant adherence to  being produced or sold here.  Seeing these statements were being  made, I suggested to the granitoid  firm that it would be wise to call a  meeting of property owners together,  so that if anyone had any questions to  ask it could be settled at once. Mr.  Woodward was asked to be present  and make good his statements, but  found ;a convenient reason for, not  doing so. Several signed his petition;  hlnklng the other was lost, and some  had forgotten they had sighed the first  one. However, by one means and another, his petition for wood block got  the required amount of signatures and  was also presented to the Board of  Works. The Engineer, believing he  should: recommend the work in accordance with the later petition, instead  of the one he had been authorized to  do, brought In a recommendation and  estimate for wood block on December  27, mo.  Thus a petition got up in this  fashion at a later date came up in  opposition to a property owners' peti-  when the street: came to be finished,'tion circulated on their behalf by  if they would be willing to widen the -Messrs.^ Higinbotham, and which had  strip between the tracks so as to ad-teen six months in the city hall.

Dear Sir: ; The : subject of mixed  marriages has been occupying public  attention ���������since; Pius X. put in operation his marriage laws in Great Britain,  Ireland and the colonies. During last  month a concrete case has.arisen in  Ireland, which casts a lurid light1 on  the whole problem. This case should  have universal attention, and it is felt  that outside the priesthood, at least, a  great majority of Roman Catholics  will resent such cruel .methods put in  force by the spiritual head of their  church.  As the facts could not be more  tersely or fully stated than in the  words of Rev. William Corkey, M.A.  (Presbyterian), tbe respected minister  of the wife in this mixed marriage  case, we take the liberty of giving bis  words addressed on December 2nd last  to the Belfast Presbytery:  "Rev. Wm. COrkey said tie wished to  bring a few facts) before the' Presbytery  concerning the case.in  connection with  which they were met that day.   The first  time he met the young- woman referred  to was about a year ago, when she waited on him after the service at his own  church door.   She told him the was married  to a  Roman Catholic, r but that he  had no objection to her coming to her  owrir place  of worship     She  then  gave  him her address and aaked him to call  to see her. After carefully thinking over  the matter he decided not to call at her  home, as he might possibly be the means  of causing friction wehe.he to call, and  he thought it would be a great pity, for  him to run tlie risk of injuring in any  way the happiness of the home life   She  attended hls-church occasionally as she  was able since then.    The next time he  met   lier   was   when   she   came   to   hit-  house about a month ago with her sister and .'unfolded ; her tale-of . woe. ;  He  thought at that time she would go demented as she teemed so dLtreshed.    It  -eemod  that shortly before  the second  baby  was  born  the priest came.to. the  hou������e.   and   a������ked   her    would   she  not  think of getting married.    She, said she  was married,    lie asked her where the  marriage Had taken place, and she said  in a Presbyterian church.-  He said that  was no use, that she was not married'at  ail,'and- that she was living in. open sin.  She asked-lilm was this not a new law  that had come out since her marriage,  <y>d_he <.aid it win, but thaUdid not'mat,  ter���������she was hot married.    She told him  .she   had; been, married ,   once,   and   she  would rover be married over again.    He  then told lier there could be no luck In  the liou.se ai long as shewn.* not married, and that there would not and could  not be peace, ln the house till she was  married.   -Her husband  was  present at  this Interview, and when the priest/ was  leaving lie asked htm not to come back  as they had lived so, far agreeable.    But  the   prlevt's   words   evidently    made    a  deep impression upon his mind,-and his  whole    attitude     to    his   wife   became  changed.',  He told her he wa* not married to her at all, that he had only taken;  up with her, and that she.was no more  to him than a common woman.    Naturally .she did not like to be told that she  was living in shame, and that her children    were   Illegitimate,   and   in   consequence of thl-i there was frequent quarrelling., In  the home.    She wan  living in  a   Roman   Catholic   district,   and   when  she went out of the house she was culled foul name-.-, and eventually she had to  get police protection.    Ail  this persecution wus inflicted because she had committed the crime of being- married In u  Fre.sbj-teHan   church.     Finally,   one  day  wlien she was out, having left her children hi charge ot her husband, she returned to And both her bable.s gone. The  eldext   was   only   fourteer   mor"i ,   !  ���������he   other   come   two   months   old.     She  lived   for  three  days   with  tier  husbunu  In the empty house, and to her entreaties  for her children, he replied that he dared  not  tell   her where   they  were.     On   the  fourth day he said he would take her to  see them, but after walking her round a  number of streets he left her, and when  she returned home she found that everything had  been  taken out of the house,  and she was left alone In the world .-with  nothfntr.but the clothes -she wore:    Since  then she had done alj that she possibly  Could to brinp about a settlement.    After  long searching she  found   her  husband,  and told him she would be willing to do  anything���������to give him full..charge-..of the  children and to do anything he wished���������  if  he-would  only   find  her a  home,  but-  the only reply he* would ' make was that  if  she  wished  back   to  her children  she  ���������world   need   to   s-ee  theqprle--t   about   It.

THE MAN FRIEND WHO COMES TO TOWN TO VISIT.  If a young man comes to visit a young woman friend, who is  not acquainted with any of her people or with any one in town,  would it be proper for her to meet him at the station and drive him  to her homo to stay, or should he stop at a hotel?  If the young man comes at the invitation of the young woman,  which should be given in her mother's name, or nt least have that  lady's indorsement, she may meet hi mat the station, as you say, and  make him welcome at her home. If he comes to the place of his own  free will, or at her mere suggestion, he would, of course, go to a  hotel, and she should not see him until he calls upon her.  ������ >  We are,there with the goods   ;;  -  ;   ���������    '''-.-,    ��������� * -    " '   ���������'        ;:  DROP INANDSEEOURSWClti  *.>  r i r  NoTrouble to show  You the Goods  ������������i������.>������'l'������������������<t'������l������l't������������������������������������1'*i������������������'l'������i*������ti������|t'������������*<'������<i������>������'ll������'l'f'l't  William R.

Dow ell-bred girls nowadays whistle about the house, cross their  legs when seated, swing their arms in walking, and smoke cigarettes?  I cannot answer such questions in few words. Nothing less  than the space of a book would give opportunity to say adequately)  what I think on the subject.

There is a society for the reformation of inebriates in Toronto  that seems to he moving on commonsense lines in dealing with the  victim's of intemperance. The members advocate the establishment of au industrial farm where the drunkard will be sent, instead  of confining him in a prison. Their theory is that instead of sending,  these unfortunat.es to jail for thirty days they get sentences of six,  twelve or eighteen months, this time to be spent iu the open air  performing some useful and profitabe labor, and thus reviving in  them habits of industry, which over indulgence in drink has destroyed. They suggest for the eoufirmed drunkard permanent residence upon the industrial farm.  The plan is based upon humanitarian principles.   It promises  tlie most ample opportunity that can be provided for reformation.  At the same time it removes from the community the burden of a ,  drunkard's maintenance, by requiring him to do as much labor at  least as will pay for his own support.
