No. 42
[Attorney-General Introduces Amendment to Municipal Clauses Act.
The public are often too ready to condemn those in authority
[when they refuse to grant legislation exactly to their taste, but are
'very slow to acknowledge an act in the public interest.
7 It is with pleasure that we draw attention to a clause in the
. 'Amendment to the Municipal Clauses Act," now before the British
[Columbia Legislature, and introduced by the Attorney-General. We
Vrefer to section 12, which reads as follows:,
I "Section 185 of said chapter 32 is hereby amended by inserting
Rafter subsection (2) of said section the following subsection:���
[ "(3) No saloon license shall be granted, renewed, or transferred so as to terminate after the fifteenth day of January, 1914,
[but ahy< person:holding a saloon license in respect of any premises
fshall be entitled to haye granted to him on or before such date a
Ihotel license in;, respect ojf any premises approvedby the.Board of
���Licensing Commissioners, upon proof to the satisfaction of the
���Board that there is on such premises a hotel, or building intended
[for a hotel, containing not less than thirty rooms used or to be used,"
ind to be kept continually in use, for hotel purposes, .and upon pay-
-ent of the proper fee for a hotel license.''        ' -
"We wish to express our approbation of the efforts of Attorney-,
jreneral Bowser to handle the liquor traffic of this province*   Last:
fear he passed the most drastic "Liquor Act" in exisfehce 1h
Canada, and he has rigorouslyc enforced Hsince it becameote^tive.,
.   " We do not agree with the Provincial Government in TiorpasWitifr -

hifori they are making to property control the situation, and to that

Davis Determined to Get the Seat���Takes Umbrage at Call.
Ward V. is having a little election campaign all to itself. Our
old friend, Mr. Wm. Davis, is determinedJWt to let an opportunity
pass to get that seat. Mr. WilliamsonV4j|ho was to all intents
elected, but disqualified on a technicality,-^, of course, in the running. In our opinion, after the result of the election of January 12th,
there should be no contest. We have repeatedly said so in these
columns and elsewhere, and as a result haV�� succeeded in offending
our worthy friend Mr. Davie. ^
Mr. Davis has forwarded a letter wale* he requests should be
published in our last week's, issue, but unfortunately it did not
come to the notice of theVeditor until afttt the issue was on the
press, as he was at Victoria on civic business. We will, however,

cause by allowing considerable editorial space for its discussion.

that iu individual cases some have suffered evil effects, even death.
It ia also true that modern science* as related to sanitary rules,
has done more than anything else to lessen tbe spread of disease, and
while vaccination may have done much in the past, the question is,
has it been replaced by a better knowledge of the disease and of
sanitary laws? In any case, the city health authorities have only-
gone so far as to provide stations where the public may have the
privilege of free vaccination, if -they so desire, and have made no
attempt to force any citizen against their will to submit to vaccination, which makes a great deal of this "go-to-jail-first" talk look
rather foolish.

the hearty support of this journal, for we are after the "latest" in
all branches of science, but please give us facts, not visions.

The recently published "robbery with violence" incident in
South Vancouver should be a warning to the city authorities to take
steps to abolish the wine cafes of this city.
It appears that a Mr. Leigh had gone to a wine cafe after
attending the theater, and there met a woman named Mrs. Beatrice
Williams, with whom he drank wine in considerable quantities; in
fact, to such a degree as to render him not altogether responsible
for his actions. They then proceeded to the Gladstone Inn, a notorious resort in South Vancouver, where more champagne was
imbibed. At this place an altercation arose bet ^en Leigh and the
cab-driver, named White, resulting in a fight. Another man named
Herbert took part in the scrape, and the up-shot of the escapade was
that when Leigh came to his senses he found he had been relieved
of $700 00 and suffered such severe bodily injury as to place him
in the hospital for some weeks. The two men, white and Herbert,
have been committed for trial on the charge of robbery.
There are two features in this incident which warrant attention���first, the police of South Vancouver showed consider able dila-
toriness in prosecuting this case, and also in allowing the Gladstone
Inn to continue these orgies, which are said to be a nightly occurrence. :
Secondly, and to our mind1 the most serious feature, is the fact
that this affair had its inspiration at a "wine cafe." These resorts
are gradually creeping into our city life and will prove to Vancouver as great a curse-'as* they have to continental Europe and to
America. " .  ;  -
Vancouver must arouse.lierself now andoshake off this invidious
element or, we shall most certainly suffer the consequences.
The''Provincial Government has seen fit. in their'^yisdom, to
refuse special legislation to enable Vancouver City and South Vancouver to consummate annexation. The reasons given are. that
special legislation is contrary to the policy of the Government, and
that there has not been sufficient expression of opinion by the public.
Regarding '"the former reason we simply say we heartily agree
with the Government, except in eases where the gravity, of the situation .outweighs the r-inciple, which ��� we ��� claim is the fact in this
case. .
As far as an expression of public opinion is concerned we claim
there has been ample. It is true our vote was small, but it was practically unanimous and was taken at a special poll, when few people
will come out. South Vancouver gave a large majority also. Then,
we claim.'as'"a.complete!'answer/.the fact that there has been no
single objection, except that of Robt. McBride and his satelite. .
However, the Government has decided, and it is now up to the
City and the Municipality to grapple with the sanitary and other
probleir-*! as best they can. under such adverse and cruel conditions
as now .exist. - .*.    .
-, ^Without an\"";de_sire-to' eiiter: the ranks?of .the -pessimist, we'.���fear
an epidemic when the dfcy/weather comes," and the' authorities��� will
be fearfully handicapped in dealing with the situation.
Why Taft Vants Reciprocity���Our Wheat to Be Diverted to Ameri*
, can Centers.
President Taft recently stated when addressing the State Legislature of Illinois that the reciprocity agreement with Canada must
of necessity relate more to agricultural products than to manufac- ���
tures  ppc! continuing, said:
"The suggestion that the opening of our markets to Canadian wheat and
other cereals will 1 educe the price of land in certain wheat-raising states is
refuted by every table of statistics. To let the whole of the Northwest
wheat come down to Minneapolis and Chicago will steady the price of wheat,
but that it will, in the end, substantially reduce the price of wheat, fixed for
the world in Liverpool, no one' familiar with conditions will assert. -  ���
"It will give the United States much greater control of the-wheat market
than it has ever had before. It will need its milling plant* to turn Canadian
wheat into flour and 'send abroad the finished product and will stimulate tho
sale of manufactures and other things that we have to. sell In Canada."l- >   t   ,
The president further asserted that in removing the artificial barriers
between the northwestern part of the United States and Canadian provinces,
the agreement would bring live cattle to feed on the corn of the American
farmer. The prsidnt said that "no step could be taken more In the interest
of a reasonable "policy of protection than the approval of the treaty atfd that
Insistence oh the present excessive protection would arouse <aa opposition U ,f'
the country that will know no mbderatkra." -,    - -   ,>   :
We would draw special attention to the words:   "It will give7'
the United States much-greater control of the wheat market."  Thia
is 'true, aud is the underlying motive of the United States.   Thenn
again, he says. "-The whole pf^the/Northwest wheat wilt con^dowa^-,-
to'Minneapolis and Chicago/' and "it will need milling plants to
turn Canadian wheat into flour.''  Did it ever occur to,the reader
that the United States is rapidly nearlng the point whe>e -they must' . -
import wheat? Is the public aware that our "Manitoba^No. 1 Hard??
is now- imported by the States for the turning out of their beet '
brands of flour!   And now that we are just approaching the point.
where-we are recognized as the chief factor in the world's wheat
market, Uncle 9am would coolly ask us to ship our wheat .to him, <- ^

We wisli very briefly to touch onV few oj the wi6at^i��^ot^/*'r- v-
items in the M Estimates for Expeaditurea" for this coming year in
^tish>Columbia.   ��� , \'\s~ '��� > 'k~    .    "&>-^<it&Zl?
.     There hrjme item of $9^32.00 ifor ifCS^MMns^^ ^f
rles." ThirHemHeor��r��'th<HM��afl#^^
and a careful perusal of the items would convmee, the mo��t exacting
eitizeu tbat the Ooverament was being carried on in a most econo-
. luic manner. The items under this bead cover .the expenses of the
Premier's office, the Board of Health, the Museum, Printing Department, Hospital for the Insane, Provincial Secretary's Department,
Educational Department, Text Books, Inspection of Schools, Normal
Schools, Department of Mines, Treasury Department, Lands Department, Works Department, the innumerable Inspectors, the Provincial
Police, the Register Offices, the Land Agents, etc.
When we consider that it is only costing about 10 per cent, of
the revenue to administer the affairs of the Province, we must certainly admit that that part is being well taken care of.
Education will claim some $848,946.00. Of this sum the amount
granted to cities, municipalities and rural districts in a per capita
grant is $787,796.00. Night schools will claim $10,000.00, free text
books $20,000X)0. This serves to show the deep interest being taken
in the education of the young of the Province.
Efforts are being made to change our excellent school system,
so as to allow for "separate schools." Those seeking this chango
give n6 adequate"rea"son"and there~is small~chance of it being granted-
by the present Government, but it is well for all who are interested
in the free, untrammeled public school system, to be on the alert to
offset any such attempt.
Hospitals and charities will receive $407,350.00. There is room
here for a little fair criticism. It is proposed to give $225,000.00 of
this sum to hospitals in direct grants. The Government has no
adequate direct supervision over these institutions. In many cases
they are purely religious in character and established with one
object, that of propagating some particular religious creed.
Now. we do not object to any organization having an hospital
if they wish, but we do object to public monies being given to any
institution which is not under the supervision of a public board. We
further affirm that an independent government inspector should be
appointed to watch over all these places which receive public aid.
This is provided for now, but some of the inspectors chosen are taken
from among the directors of the hospital they arc to inspect, which
is a farce.
The Administration of Justice will demand $265,070.00, which is
well within bounds. ���
Public institutions will require $191,400.00, divided up as'follows:   Bureau of Mines $4,000.00. Fisheries-$]9.500:00. Hospital for
Insane $83,150.00, Printing Office $68,150.00, Old.Men's Home $14/
600.00, Museum $2,000.00.   These items include repairs, maintenance,
now !����������'���-inery, materials, etc.
Public Works.
This department" is the. heavy spender and ���$5/507.990.00 will
this year be expended'in public works. The Vancouver Court House
$225,000.00, new Asylum at Coquitlam .$355,000.00," new wing to
Parliament .Buildings.$150,000.00. prison farms and buildings $50,-

00.0.00, other bridges $600,000.00, aud the splendid sum of $2,842,-
000.00 on roads, streets and wharves:
The foregoing is a complete answer to those "chronic kickers"
who are claiming the Government are not spending sufficient on
.public works. It is quite apparent that the Government is endeavoring to develop this vast'Province in a sane and equitable
manner. The sum for roads provides for every "district, including
$75,000.00 for the. Alberni district, the home of the leader of,the
Opposition (Brewster), which goes to demonstrate the fairness ot* the
Among the miscellaneous items will "'be found $7S,000.00 for

SIS BROADWAY Phone  One of the weightiest pronouncements against the ag: eement was made  by the Montreal Board of Trade, an  organization which generally gives the  cue to similar bodies, at least in Eastern Canada. Yet this pronouncement  was by no means unanimous. While  Montreal is the king pin of the protected interests and shouts the loudest  when vested'interests!ere in danger  there are yet many able men who do  not see eye to eye with their business  brethren and do not hesitate to say so.  Steel Interests Anxious; <'.,,.

Tha Dominion Steel.,  of $50, but'apparently it will be selling  soon at a higher level. There is every  reason to believe that 1911 will be a  very favorable year for the makers of  farming utilities and that the holders  of industrial stocks generally will profit accordingly.  A Masonic Disavowal.  The Masonic Grand Lodge of the  Province of Quebec is holding its annual session here and the opportunity  has been sejzed to make a formal disavowal of any connection with the  Grand Lodge of the Orient, the French  organization, whose members in this  city," members of Emancipation Lodge,  are just getting settled down after a  great stir which commenced last summer prior to the Bucharistic Congress  and lasted for several months. Antagonism c to the - Roman Catholic  Church is a specialty of the French  organization, while quite the reverse  is the case with, the English Free  Masonry. They do not want to be  mixed up with such a crowd and do  not hesitate to say so. In the meantime the Roman Catholic Church authorities make no distinction.  Earnings Down, Stock Up.  The rather unusual.; spectacle has  been presented of a rather sharp decline in the approximate earnings of  the Canadian Pacific Railway during  January, due doubtless to the smaller-  crop last season, while the price of  the stock, in the market is' going up,  and everybody seems bullish.' The rise  urer's report showed a balance on hand  of over $1,200. The Grand Organizer,  J. W. Whieley, was re-engaged and  given an increase in salary. On account of ill-health, he was also given  two months' leave, of absence for the  purpose of talcing a uip to Honolulu:  Di" .tig ihe session a resolution on the  qv ati 11 of reciprocity ^as unanimously   "i   fed PS folicv:s:  "Tli.i it is the judgment'of this Provincial Grand Lodge that the highest  interests of the British Empire, including Canada as a most important factor  thereof, are seriously menaced by the  proposed reciprocity tieaty between  Canada and the United States; and  that until pieferentir.l trade witlun tha  Empiie is established, negotiations  lookiiig toward reciprocal trade between- Canada and the United States  be deferred."  A set of bylaws for the governing  of the business of the Grand Lodge,  and the defining of the relations between the Grand Lodge and the primary district, and county lodges, was  adopted.  A resolution favoring the sanctity  of the Sabbath was also placed on the  books, also one regarding the three  hundredth anniversary of the translation of the King James' version of  the Bible, also one in favor of temperance.  Revelstoke was chosen as the next  place of meeting in February, 1912.  . At the afternoon session on Thurs-  is also: the more remarkable in face 'day. a purse was presented to R. W.  of the prophecies of dire disaster if the  reciprocity agreement goes through,  one of thelse to be hardest hit being  the Canadian.Pacific.

A. for Randwick/and the party  will be known as- the "Democratic  Party." ������ Its policy is described as aiming at "Justice/to all classes, Justice  in legislation and administration, and  tolerance In politics and religion." The  leaders say that they have adopted this  course on account of the growing danger to the Interests of the country by  the continuance ot machine politics,  the tyranny of Liberalism as lately  practised, and the tyranny of the Labor caucus. The Democratic Party  declares that If a measure Is brought  down next session for the repeal of  the (land) Convention Act, one of the  biggest political lights ever'known in  New South Wales will take'place on  the question of leasehold versuB freehold.  *  -K" ��������������������������� ���������<  ...

Elder  For tlie Home  When Busy Motheds  find that outdoor exercise is impossible the following plan may help them,  as it has the oilginator, --vho says tint  after breakfast the children, too small  to go to school, were clad in their outdoor clothing, while the mother, too,  diessed herself warmly, an J then opened every window and the door to a  porch, and the mother washed dishes,  made beds, swept, and dusted, etc. The  fresh air coming in while she briskly  did her work' was nearly as good for  her as a walk. After the house was  in order the windows were closed, the  baby was washed and put to bed,  where he slept soundly from the effects of fresh air. The mo! her took  up her sewing or went on with her  housework, better and more cheerful  ���������from the same good cause.  it with powdered pumic stone. Dip  this ^ in good sweet oil and rub the  table well.

I should advise you not to take it  too seriously, but, with exaggerated  indignation arid head held very high;  you might say in a light, jesting manner: "I did not hear you ask my gracious permission to smoke, sir!" The  suggestion of his omission may thus  be conveyed without implying your  displeasure, though I think some little  reproof is called for.  When Cleaning    Upholstered    Furniture ���������  '  .7  It is often either Impossible or inconvenient to move it outdoois.7 In such  cases place a wet cloth over the piece Beated at table,  of furniture and then beat it, changing the cloth several times during the  process.

Removing Gloves at a Banquet  Please tell me If it is correct to remove one's gloves while being served  at a reception or banquet.

These are badly needed  In some districts, the absence of draining being a serious menace to public  health.

Meetings  will be called and the matter will be  taken up by all tbe aRtepayers Associations and other representative  bodies. An indignation meeting will  be held tonight at Pender Hall. The  Smith and Others will speak.  The refusal of the council to give  the school trustees what they need for  "extraordinary expenditure" does not  come from lack of sympathy with their  work or because the need for the out  lay is not recognised. It Is a matter  of procedure. The trustees can now go  to the ratepayers with a bylaw and  there is no doubt that the ratepayers  will vote the 2(0.000 asked for.  In order to provide Ave new brick.  schools and to purchase siv school  sites the school trustees have, mads a  demand for $325,000. leas $75,000 which  tha government will contribute.

Mixed marriages are a curse, even though they  may be blessed by a Pope. In,every Instance that is known the Protestant has  been the -victim. Let us point out the  marriage of Miss Gould to that eminent  scoundrel and spendthrift Count Bonl  Ca?tellalne as an example.  Protestant people cannot "do otherwise than look- upon these marriage?  with horror. They are equally bad  among the common people as well a? the  rich. The sacrifice that Rome demands  is too great. The end Is generally a case  of rationalism, for no sane person could  believe -Rome, if the-Roman priest presented Roman Catholicism without a  mask. There is a great difference between the mask and tlie face. It will be  remembered before the marriage of Klnj  Alfonso was completed that Princess  Ena was compelled to ior������wear the religion'of her father, her rr->ther, and of:  "Victoria the good" for tiiiit of the late  King of the Belgians, whose immoralities we are asked by Father Bernard  Vaughan to draw a veil across. It must  have given the Prince of Wales a shock,  nay it must have pained him as a representative of the late King Edward at the  marriage as ' he listened to his cousin  declare on the Gospels, and before a  Romanist bishop, specially imported  from England, that. her good mother  and father as dying outside the Roman  communion was eternally���������well, we shall  say lost. The chickens have come home  to roost, for we learn by "The World"  (and this is enough to put "The World"  on the index) that It has been made  known in court circles in London that  King Alfonso has turned out a gay Lothario, that he prefers a Parisian dancer  to that of his wife; that the young  Queen, were it not for the reason of  forfeiting, her son's right to the throne,  would   immediately   leave   the   country.  We do not know why a virtuous voung  wamon like Princess Ena could have  married King Alfonso Look at the list  of ancestors he ha���������������'ihe most immoral  and debased in all Pi tope It is strange  that no line is drown amongst Royalty  as to the morality of one's ancestors.  No man, we dare say, in humble life  would suffer his daughter to marry a  man With no better than a Bourbon  character. Of one of the Bourbons,  Swlnborne, the poet, writes, "Go down  to hell, thy end fa good to see."        '  The verdict aa to the character of  these two Royal personages is ln favor  of the Queen. Princess Ena was trained In a Royal home in England. It may  be said that she learned the Lord's Prayer at the knees of "Victoria the Good."  She was baptised by a Presbyterian minister in Scotland, and re-baptised by order of the Pope. But what about Alfonso? Born and bred a Roman Catholic  taught by Jesuits since his infancy, and  at the age of manhood their tool, the  husband nf the beautiful Princess Ena  and tha paramour of a Parisian dancer.

Misa  Vosper was well and favorably known  ln social and church circles. > She was  an accomplished elocutionist and freely  lent her talent to give pleasure to  her fellows. She was an indefatigable  worker |n the church and geratly beloved by all who came in contact with  her.  In her chosen profession, that of a  nurse, she had few peers and her  bright, sunny ways won the love and  respect of all.  Miss Vosper left some time ago for  a holiday trip to the upper country,  and from there v;ent to Spokane to  visit friends. While there she was  asked to assist in a critical operation  to be performed on one of her friends  and received a slight scratch on one  finger. Blood poisoning set in and  it was soon seen tl. it this bright young  life was to be sacrificed to this dread  aflf 'jtion. We join with a host of  others in sympathy to the friends. The  loss will be keenly felt throughout the  whole city by the innumerable friends  of the deceased, for to meet her was  to become her friend. -~  COMMUNICATIONS.  To the Editor "The Wester Call,"  Dear Sir:  The: sympathy of the Brotstant world  went out in abundance to Princess Ena  when it was learned that she had decided upon a "conversion to order" ul  a matrimonial alliance to a degeneiate  king of a fast,"decaying kingdom. The  marriage was a conspiracy and was well  planned and carried out under that unfortunate lady. ex-Empress Eugenie,  whose little war for the ske of tlie Papacy lost her a throne. Did Home believe that in capturing a Protestant Princess of the Royal Blood that her example would bo followed by a bevy of  weak-minded maidens, such as the Haps-  burgs? Or that cn alliance would fol?  iow that would ensure the stability of  a tottering throne and a further lease.  of Dower to Borne in Spain? If sue did  then Rome has been disappointed in all  her hopes. The "cor.-, ersions" hoped for  have not taken place; the Spanish Monarchy has not strengthened its position  nor, worse, from the "point of view .of the  Roman Puria, the people of Spain are  fast throwing ofT-the yoke of^Rome. The  marriage of Princess Ena-to King Alfoif-  so-has t>een a" dismal' failure, as all such I   .  Will pay the first installment on a  splendid lot in our new subdivision  jnst off Nanaimo kt.
