 'M*  * ���������"/%! **r������: 73? ** ������V'4 A"awV*  ARE YOU ON OUR UsT?  NO! WHY ?  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  ��������� ������   t "-a  VOLUME II  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER,   British Columbia*' -FEB.\ 17,, 1911.  N'   41  Of  :.*W  Aldermen Juggle With Bylaw���������Mandate of the People to Be Ignored.  At the last general elections the electors declared by an overwhelming  majority in favor of limiting the height of buildings in this city to 120 feet  and 10 stories. In accordance with this mandate of the electors the building  bylaw was amended and passed by a full council board, the bylaw being read  three times in the regular order.  Since the passing of the bylaw, as stated above, F. D. Boucheau has  applied for a permit to erect an " 11 -story" apartment house in the West End,  and was refused by the building inspector.    He appealed to the building  committer on the ground that he had had a partial permit for a foundation  -  prior to the passing of the bylaw.    The building committee were divided on  the question and sent it up to the council, where a motion was made giving  a special permit.    This was challenged as out of order and it was so rujed,  ,and it was stated that the bylaw would have to be amended.    Notice was  ���������then given by Alderman Crowe of an amendment to the bylaw to allow of  11 stories.    This course had been opposed by Aldermen Rogers, Ramsay  and Stevens as "bad legislation" and "contrary to the expressed wish of the  people"; the other aldermen contended that there should be no definite limit  ,' to die number.of stories as long as the height does not exceed 120 feet, the  , mayor also supporting this idea. " This course, if pursued, will mean that  i the people may vote what they like and the council can and will juggle with  '"' their mandate, and the public can never' depend upon a bylaw remaining  as it was originally passed for more than a week or until the next meeting  of council.   It might also be stated that in three other cases the city council  allowed variations from the building bylaw by special^ resolution.    Such a  course' is certainly exceedingly bad precedent, and the public will be unable  to tell when a bylaw is intended to be taken seriously or only as a joke to  be pitchforked about upon the slightest excuse of any citizen.   It is certainly  : unfair to law-abiding- dozens and an encouragement to that class who are  ' continually seeking for some special privilege.  The people passed up to the council a mandate for 10 stories not to  - exceed 120 feet, and the council have no right to vary this except upon some  further expression horn the electorate.

It is unfair to other tenderer** and also the cause of great inconvenience to  the public.  Cambie street bridge should have been open for traffic NOW, and here  we are, faced with a new season's activity, without this valuable .avenue of  traffic being open to assist hr handling the city's business. It is a public  outrage and should not be tolerated for one moment  PARK TALLY-HO.  It is to the credit of Park Commissioner Owens that the park1 tally-ho  is a possibility of this year's improvement. Owing to his unfailing push and  knowledge of what the public desire and can make use of he has been pegging  away on this subject. His work has been well and thoroughly done, and  the project practically, is up to the finance committee. It has been in the face  of strenuous objection on the part of vehiclejcompanies who do not desire to  see their monopoly infringed upon. *> ,   Mr. Owens'- project js-a-good one, andmeans that at a cost_of about  25 cents per head the public can make the circle of the park, heretofore being  something only the wealthy could do.  Up to the present jt has been possible for the general public to reach  P the entrance to our renowned park, and the entrance only, the tourist traffic  and travellers from all over the world being better acquainted with the beauty  of this park than Vancouver's citizens. Now, at the cost of 25 cents, it will  be possible to reach any part of the grounds. The project will mean an investment by the city of about $7,000, which investment will be revenue bearing  and at the same time a great accommodation tc the public. The public owe  Mr. Owens their gratitude and support.  THE COAL PROBLEM.  The British Columbia government has done wisely to take up the matter  of high-priced coal. There are times when governments are required to turn  aside from the usual routine to examine into matters of vast importance in  relation to the masses. This is just such a moment, time and circumstance. A  long while ago Moses was going along in the ordinary way when a burning  bush appeared before him and .attracted his attention. From a careful study  of that "burning bush" issues of the most momentous character have sprung,  and are yet in flood. ; ��������� tj .  It is a long distance from that "burning bush" to the live issue of this  hour as represented in burning coal. It is a burning question that demands  attention now and continuously until we find a satisfactory solution.  To my mind there is but one way to this solution, and that is public  ownership and public working of public mines. Let our government, the most  truly representative and efficient government ihthe history of the province, go  to work with a will, and great results will be found, and that right speedily.  It is right to have a department of finance, of agriculture, of education, etc.  And there is already a department of mines established. Let that, or a sub-  department, take up the question of mining coal and selling at cost, after  making proper provision for interest and sinking fund connected with the venture. -Then let the coal kings sell to whom they could. Of course, it would  be' wise in the first instance, at least, to sell only to householders, so as to come  to the immediate relief of the working classes. As time passes other phases  of coal^supply could be studied and acted upon as the government and people  might deem wise.  If these views meet the commendation of the readers we would be glad  to be so informed, that we may make a movement of a forward character.  E.  ODLUM.  Vancouver, B. C, February 13th, 191 1.  It la remarkable that although the history of'Canada goes back only some  three centuries, and Is therefore com- para$rely,jmodern; and that of ever>  decade, whether under French of Eng- liBhllile, we have voluminous, official  records, it should abound in myths. Perhaps the myth, which Is the most  direct perversion of facts, is that which represents the saving of Canada to  the British Crown during the American Revolution as due to the devotion of  the priests and the loyalty of the in-, habitants* Hundreds of orators, amid  thunders of applause, have drawn the picture, of Canada, cruelly abondoned  by France and dominated by a British garrison; yet, when, threatened by American Invaders, rallying under the ad- vice of their beloved pastors for the  defence of their new masters, - and going ;forth as of yore, led by their  seigniors to whom they still rendered loyal,allegiance. What are the facts  as presented in the dispatches of Gov- emor-Ceneral Carleton, his successor  Haldlmand, and of other officials? They ^reveal .& peasantry who loved  neither the Republican nor the Loy--.aHst?irho spoke'English; and who, on  being asked by priest and seignior to Join the militia, were seized with dread  that the old absolutism of the Church, and,the hated.rule of the seignior under the French regime were to be re- storedl The .call to arms they would  not listen to, and where a seignior^at- tempted'to coerce them Into the ranks,  they resisted, and gave him to under--pttod '.that they were no longer vas-  sals.  '   ���������' .*  Never was the situation more peril- oua toj British Interests than .during  1775 and the first half of 1776.   The hi  THE GRAND ORANGE LODGE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.  A most enthusiastic and largely representative assembly of the Grand  Orange Lodge of British Columbia was held at Victoria this week, there being  over 100 members present    The proceedings were most interesting and the  instructive andmarked by intense loyalty and serious conception of the duties  "< of Canadian citizenship.   A fuller report will be- published in nex. issue.  out of hostilities found Carleton with only 800 soldiers. Ticonder- og������fiad .Crown Point, held by corporal's, guards, were easily captured by the Americans, who thus got possession of Lake Champlain, a fact jehich rendered possible an invasion of Canada. Advices from E3nglandL<wer#;,that no ^troops, could be spared. Laboring  under, the delusion tbat the fo'hablUnm'would take the .'Loyalist side, Carleton  was aavlsed to call out the militia, and^"am thorn, 6000 muskets were sent  to htm> at Quebec to be fon&red later on ky equipment for an army ot 20,-  000. None could be got to shoulder tbj) muskets. Every attempt to raise  the militia was futile.'. Seels* the hj0>t ^'ts refused to light, the Indians did  not care to go on r the warpath, ThejpwernOr buoyed himself with'the hope  that if the inhabitants, would not-fight th������ approaching enemy, they would  not help them. Without the assistance ist the French; the Americans could  not cross the St Lawrence, and sqtiM governor.considered hi* position  on the North shore secure.

There was delay, and he thought' he> was correct' th, his surmise. "The  delay was in .collecting boats. < tn a& agbny^f disappointment, Carleton saw  the habitants ferry the Americans over to besiege him. ' Montreal was still  surrounded by the wall of the French period, and although he had only Blvty  soldiers, eighty sailors, and a handful ot English militia, Carleton resolved to  hold it, for he, had cannon, while tbe enemy so far had only rifles. He soon  realized that his position was unteha- ble on account of the treachery of tbe  inhabitants, who cut off bis supply parties and captured'his messengers.  He complained bitterly. The disobedl- ence ot the people increased, they  everywhere helped the Americans, while the King's representatives were  betrayed. A messenger, who had elud- ed the enemy, brought word that Sorel  was in the hands of the Americans, and that a thousand Frenchmen had joined  their ranks. In bis dispatches to Eng- land Carleton refers to the baseness  of the habitants, their ingratitude for'all the-favors "shown them, and calls  them a wretched people blind to honor. Whiles/waiting to be attacked by the  Americans, an alarming dispatch reach- ed'him. An American army had threaded the wilds of Maine, and unexpect- edly appeared on the opposite shore  to Quebec. Carleton realized that prompt action was necessary. With  traitors-within-and-without the walls, the defence ot Montreal would be difficult; but of what use would it be to bold Montreal should Quebec be lost?  Quebec was the key of Canada, and must be saved. On tbe night of the  11th. of November, he embarked his little garrison on boats, abondoning  Montreal, whose inhabitants welcomed the Americans the following day. Running the gauntlet of batteries at Ber- thier and Sorel, Carleton reached Quebec on the 19th and none too soon. Ab at Montreal, tbe Americans had been  given every assistance by the habi- tants, and had been ferried across the  St. Lawrence by them. They were now in camp, within striking distance of  Quebec, awaiting tbe reinforcements they knew were on tbe way. Carleton used the breathing spell to com- plete his defenses.  On the 4th of December, the Ameri- can army being now ln full strength,  he was summoned to surrender. Carle- ton replied that he would not parley  with rebels, and the seige began. The Americans had the advantage in numbers, led by able officers, and in hav- ing the peoDle of the country with  them. Carleton's sole advantage lay in the fortifications, which he had  barely enough men to cover. Assaults by day and night were made and stoutly repulsed, and worse than these open attacks were the machinations of traitors within the walls to betray the gar- rison. On New Yea'rs Eve, the Americans had arranged for a midnight at- tack, winch resulted in their disastrous repulse. The point where one of their generals, Montgomery, paid  his life for his temerity, is still pointed out on the cliff where he fell. This  defeat had an immediate effect on the habitants, shaking their belief that the  Americans were bound to win, and hastened the revulsion of feeling that  was already working in ther nr'nds. For several weeks their enthusiasm  for their visitors had- been waning, and this victory hastened the sentiment. The continental army was leav-ened with ruffians, who repeated on  whoever was suspected to favor the British, the outrages they had practised on the Loyalists of New Eng-land; while between the United States  commissary officer wio cleaned out his barnyard and handed in payment  paper scrip, and the British officials Who had always paid in gold, the habitant began do draw comparisons, and to edge back to the side of the British.  To the besieged garrison the weary winter crept on, and during those five  months the only spot in Canada where the Union Jack floated was from the  citadel of Quebec. Both sides of the river were in the undisputed possession of the Americans, with their head- quarters in Montreal, where they raised a reg? lent of French-Canadians. Arnold enlisted another regiment at  Quebec, a..d reported that he would have taker more, had he been able to  equip them. A! third regiment was enrolled at TSorel under American colors. General Schuyler wrote from Montreal to his chief: "I can have as  many Canadians as I know how to maintain." At Three Rivers, there  was no difficulty in raising 500 rank and file, and in getting thirty of the  better class to accept the commissions from congress to command them. During that whiter of 1775-76, when the Province of Quebec was practically a  State of the Union, we hear ri5t a word of the promise by Bishop Briand  that his priests would refus'e the. sac- raments to whoever aided the invaders.  All the Americans needed to com-plete their conquest of Canada was  the capture of the Citadel cf Quebec. Each week that drew spring nearer increased the difficulties of the Ameri- cans. The Canadians who had 30 effus-  ivt -elcomed them, were cooling In their ardor as they foresav the possibility of Quebec holding out until the British'fleet came, which would ensure  -   -7 (Continued on next page)    -  City Depends on the Honor of the Compkny  At a recent meeting of the (ire and police committee the city electrician  was questioned regarding the large number of street lights which were frequently out, some for many consecutive nights.    He replied:    "That he had "  no check except the police patrolmen, and further stated that formerly they  had had an instrument in the city hall whereby they were able to keep, a  check upon the electric company, but that some time ago this had been removed to the B. C. Electric substation."    When surprise was expressed at  this it was stated that "we were dealing with an honorable company."   Now  we do no twish to question the honor of any individual official or shareholder -  in the company, but it has been stated by some eminent legal authorities that  a "company is incapable of being either honorable or dishonorable."    Be this  as it may, it certainly is a questionable method of doing business to leave  everything to the "honor" of the company.   In our opinion it is not a question  of honor at all, but one of simple business procedure which is followed in  all branches of trade.    We most certainly should have a close check upon the  ' B. C. Electric in all matters, and that'these instruments, which were formerly  tinstalled in the city hall for that purpose, should have been removed to the'  substation of the company is so manifestly absurd that it scarcely requires'  comment. , ,<.���������>'.  The city is paying the company handsomely for the lighting of our  streets and in return are getting a very poor quality of light, many of the lights'  being so dim .that they are practically worthless,.and besides, many are not  lighted at all.    . , . ,   ,  ,  It is a well-known fact that the company .is doing about 50,000 hone-  power of work with a 30,000 -horsepower developed power on the assumption, that while some lights or power plants are working others are idle, but  were the, company called upon to supply the maximum power contracted for  their system would be entirely inadequate,' This is clearly demonstrated by  the dimness of the downtown lights durtfg certain hours when demands are >  heaviest, so it can be readily seen thai there is good reason to keep a "check"  upon the supply. >  y/s do not contend that die company should be forced to keep continuously in reserve power to supply 'the' last possible call, but that the city  and the general public should get what,they contract for and that the company should be prepared to supply this without sacrificing one department to  furnish another, and we further submit that the B. C. Electric substation is  no place for any civic checking mtuinnen(sf;  VANCOUVER CITY CHARTER AMENDMENTS.  The City Charter amendments came up for discussion before the Private  Bills Committee on Wednesday last and was passed practically as presented  ' with some minor exceptions.    The following are among the most important  changes.  1. Giving of married women votes when they are owners of property,  , the same .as now obtains as regards widows and spinsters.  2. Power to erect public conveniences underground or otherwise.  3. Power to license and regulate saleof milk, fish, fruit and meat  This is a very important clause and gives power which we have wanted  for some time and will enable the Medical Health Officers to control a very  serious grievance.   ���������_   _ 4._ _A .clause Jo proyide_for the licensing of bar-tenders andadjusting  the licensing of restaurants.  5. A clause to allow of erection of ornamental light standards by local  improvement.  6. The clauses re the annexation of Hastings Townsite and District  Lot 301. These districts will now become part of the city upon signature  of the Bill.  Those clauses struck out are:  1. The suggestion of ex-alderman Hepburn to install sewers on a  special frontage tax.  2. The clause to provide for a wholly elective license board struck  out because it conflicts with the policy of the Government.  3. The clause re the appointing of County-court Judges, Police Magistrate and Mayor.   This was struck out for the same reason as clause 2.  4. The clause to repeal the clause making the city responsible for  all accidents by breaks in the streets. This is a hardy annual but was not  granted.  5. i\ clause to open lanes by local improvement, but without allowing  a petition against.    Struck out because it not protect the individual.  ANNEX MOUNT PLEASANT���������DELIVERY CHARGES.  It is about time that the merchants and residents of Mount Pleasant  became part of Vancouver in the matter of Dominion Express Delivery  charges. ������  At the present time we or the merchants are held up for these charges.  Goods come addressed to the Consignee and the method used by the  postal authorities here in Vancouver are such that if a firm, howeverw well-  known, is addressed, but no specific address put on the mail, it is returned  to the sender, thus giving the transportation companies an opportunity to:  charge demurage and storage. '  !i!  Other than this the Dominion Express do not deliver goods to Mount  Pleasant without charge as they do in other parts of the city.    Vancouver to  Sixteenth Avenue is all one���������why this discrimination asrainst our merchants���������  where is this imaginary*line and by whom was it established?    A toll of 10:  to 25 cents is charged on anything of the size of a handkerchief or more.  We hear of progressive meetings in other parts of the city where such  subjects as vaccination and ward improvement is discussed, why not Mount  Pleasant?    It is time to organize.  POSTOFFICE RE-ORGANIZED.  Not content with remodelling the Mount Pleasant Pharmacy, the new  proprietor has undertaken the remodelling of the Sub-Postoffice No. 8, located  in the store.  Since the appointment of the new postmaster/February Ist.> 191 I, at  this office a change has taken place, and in future this impartant branch will  be handled properly and the public served as they should be.  Mr. Wilson, the new postmaster asks the public to kindly report any  incivility or neglect direct to him and also wishes to state that at any time  businessmen can obtain stamps, etc. any amounts, large or small at this office,  as a large supply will be constantly on hand.

A year after his sore  of being of the strongest party." When' experience in repulsing the America  the St. Lawrence at last cast its coat  of ice, the little garrison was faced  -with the prospect of famine, and Carleton foresaw that unless ships speedily  arrived from England, Canada was lost  to the British. The Americans redoubled their efforts. Their batteries  were planted hearer, occasionally  throwing hot shot in order to set fire  to the barracks of the little garrison,  who responded shot for shot. On the  morning of the 6th of May, a shout  went up that three sails were In sight,  and when, on drawing nearer, the red  flag of their country was discerned  flying from the foremast of the leading  ship, strong men broke down from the  reaction of the suspense of five months,  and with tears and shouts of Joy grasped each other hand. No Booner had the  ���������hips cast anchor than boats were lowered and the landing of troops began,  The hour of remaining on the defens  ive had passed. Ordering' the long  closed gates to be thrown open, Carleton at noon, at the head of his "troops  marched out to give battle to the' Americans. It was too late. The Americans had spied the ships too, and had  at once retreated. All Carleton could  do waa to turn their retreat into a  rout.  For eight months the Americans  were on Canadian soil; six of these  months they were ln undisputed possession of every part except the few acres  enclosed within the walls of the fortifications ot Quebec. Why, then, did  Canada not continue to be part of the  American Republic? Because it had  s governor with the head to plan, and  invasion, when he had time to delibei-  ately review the past, Governor Carleton wrote the Colonial Secretary ii.  London: "As to my opinion of the  French Canadians, I think there is  nothing to fear from them, whi'e w<  (the British) are in a state of prosperity, and nothing to hope tor vvne.i n  utstre&s."  The Constitution Act of 1791  The Constitution Act of 1791 divided  Canada into two Provinces, one  French, the other English, and thus another step was taken in perpetuating  the French regime under the British  Hag. The Act also provided for a  Lower House, whose members were  to be elected by the people, and a  Council composed of Crown nominees.  A remarkable feature of the Act is Its  making the Church of England the  established church in both Provinces.  To prevent any obstacle being placed  In the way of carrying out this provision by the Assembly, it was provided that any Act of the Legislature  regarding it must be aubmitted to the  Imperial Parliament before receiving  the royal assent. The object of this  clause is obvious; to block any attempt by the French Canadians to prevent carrying out the purpose of the  Act. One third of the Act is devoted  to the constituting of the Church of  England as the Established Church.  It would be correct to describe the Act  as one establishing a modified system  of self government, and the Church of  England In Canada; and the Act furnishes incontrovertible evidence that a  generation after the    conquest,    the  EARLY  St. Lawrence Route in Danger���������Church  Insurance���������Barber    Before    Royal  Commission���������Women   to   the  Rescue  Shipping interests in Montreal, both  ocean going and inland navigation, are  very much, upset Just now for two  reasons, and, if one may Judge from  casual observation, their alarm is Just,  for the causes of their worry are of  national importance.

These women state that the men are  too, busy with-their commercial business to attend to this movement, and  they intend to go ahead unaided.  Ten women who have started this  movement, all of whom are good housekeepers, met at the house of Mrs. J.  Clark Murray, 20 McTavish St., and  after discussing the many nuisances  they are subjected to throughout the  year by the unnecessary ringing of  door bells, decided to form themselves  into a band and start a war upon the  shopkeepers' and others who intrude  their business in private homes, by  bringing samples printed slips or other  things which housekeepers claim are  unnecessary.

J. Taylor Limited, Woodstock, Ont.  A snowshoe tramp is not only enjoyable but likewise health-giving and  as a recreation cannot be surpassed.  When such a tramp can be taken in  the-winter woods/which have charms  and glories all their own, the fascinations of the outing are unequalled,  and he who has failed to Indulge in  such pastime has missed, much that  goes to make life worth living. Beyond the winter joys there is so  much well worthy of attention. Hunting in the Land of the Caribou���������New  Poundland���������well describes the attraction of that island to the big game  hunter; while the advantages of Quebec, of Nova Scotia, of British Columbia and of both old and New Ontario for game and game fish are recorded by those who have had experience and recount their experiences  for the pleasure and profit of their  fellow sportsmen. An illustrated description of a portioin of the moun-  tainsection of the Grand Trunk Pacific, goes to show that in scenic beauties Canada's new transcontinental is  going to rival any other route. There  is also a wealth of further articles  on sporting matters and the large  army of trapshooters will be particularly interested in an illustrated account of the Hamilton Winter Tournament. Altogether this number has  only to be seen to recommend itself,  as the finest exponent of Canadian outdoor life in its many phases now published.  TIT FOR TAT.

London���������The arrival of the ship  Arawa from Australia this week with  1,42 Otons of grass-fed butter in her  cold Btorage chambers calls for attention to' the fact that a vast amount  of this'dairy product is imported into  this country, and that none of it is  sold as Australian butter. The dairy  farmers of the'Commonwealth claim to  have no superiors as butter makers  In the world, and they complain- bitterly'on'account of the'prejudice on the  part of English butter dealers, which  tbey say prevents them from selling  Australian butter under its proper  name. It is sold here as being from  France or Denmark.  In Australia butter for home consumption and for export-is manufactured finder close supervision by Gov-  ernm/ntr inspectors. It is: made in  large factories on the co-operative principle, and during the process 1b never  touched by hand.' 'At tbe factories and  again at the various ports before it  Is shipped itis subjected to tests In  order that tbe @overnment may be  assured tbat it contains the requisite  amount of fat. Only the salt variety  is exported.  In ^908 the amount of butter produced in Australia was 145,317,3571b.,  of which there were exported ,51,065,-  4851b8., of which about 45,000,0001bs.  came-to the United Kingdom, the remainder being sent to the Far East. In  1909 the total amount produced was  153,730,5221b.-, of-which exports-reached 55,020,876 lbs., 50,000,0001bs. went  to England alone the value being ������2,-  398,491. The same- rate ot Increase  was .maintained ln 1910. In an interview .with a large butter importer in  Tooley street, our representative was  informed that the Australian butter is  the best that comes into the market,  and in spite of its long journey is in a  first-ra.te state of preservation when it  reaches England.

New Zealand  will be brought in closer touch with  the Mother country, as it is believed  that the journey home will be made  nine days shorter by the new route.  PRAISE FOR COBALT.  In the Toronto "Globe's" annual fl-  nancial review, Mr. H. S. Logan, local  manager of the Canadian Bank of Com-  merce at Cobalt, states that the camp  gives employment to about 5,000 men.  It has made a market for machinery,  merchandise, foodstuffs,   etc..   during  the past five years totalling in  the  neighborhood of 130,000,000.

In the north and played an important  part In the recent prosperity of the  Province and Canada in general. By  the end of 1910 it will have added to  the world's supply of silver about $47,-  500,000, and I venture to predict that  before tbe mines of Cobalt are exhausted the total production will be In the  neighborhood of $100,000,000.  The Pof-  supine gold district is now attracting  much attention, and It gives promise  of being a very valuable camp,   it is  to be hoped that It may mean as much  to Ontario as does the silver mining  Industry of ttobatl.

London���������Over 600 men are now  busily engaged making an inventory  of the���������NatJonai Telephone Company's  equipment, in view "of the acquirement  of tahe undertaking by the Post Office  at theend of the year. About 400 of  these officials represent the company,  and the remainder are working with  them on behalf of the Post Office.  Their task is to prepare a list of all  the belongings of the National Telephone Company, with a view to fixing  their value on December 31st next. The'  year 1912 will be well advanced before  the work is completed. An agreement  may be arrived at as to the purshase  price of the company's assets as the  first outcome of the inventory, but  failing this, arbitration proceedings  would have to follow, at a cost of many  thousands of pounds. An idea of the  magnitude of the task with which the  valuers have to grapple can be obtained from the fact that over ������16,000,000  hasfbeen invested in the the company,  and that its employees number over  18,000. By the coming transference the  size of the Post Office staff will be increased from 96,852, the figure of  March  last, to about 115,000.  Cooperative Best Growing.  The establishment of a beet sugar  factory within the Irrigation Block in  the vicinity of Strathmore, Alberta,  for which Dr. Charles Weidraan has'  been for some months working, has  now become an established fact. Dr.  Weidman, who came here direct from  Germany in the early part of November, has been working enthusiastically  to induce the farmers to co-operate  with him towards the desired end, and  has now secured agreements - for the  growing of at least 2000 acres of sugar  beet, which it is proposed to increase  later to 4000 acres. At a large and enthusiastic meeting of the farmers of  the Strathmore district It was reBolved  to form a co-operative company, to be  known-as ."The Co-operative Farming  and Beet Sugar Refining Company,"  with a capitalisation of $1,500,000, and  head offices at Strathmore.  AUSTRALIAN 8UGAR.  The Government Statistician estimates the Queensland sugar crop of 1910  amounted to over $6,000,000,  at 207,340 tons. The area crushed is  estimated at 99,634 acres, and the cane  crushed at 1,818,781 tons.  CANADA'S CROPS.  The total of field crops grown in  Canada in 1910 was 32,711,062 acres,  and the value c of crops $507,185,500,  compared with 30,065,556 acres and  a value of $532,992,100 in 1909.  545 VESSELS LAUNCHED.  London���������Lloyd's annual summary of  ship-building for 1910 shows that during the year 500 vessels (exclusive of  warships), of 1,143,169 tons gross, were  launched inj the United Kingdom. Of  this number 473 were steamers and 27  sailing vessels. The warships launched amounted to 45, of 134,645 tons, 'iue  total output for the year was, therefore, 545 vessels of 1,277,814 tons. The  output of mercantile tonnage in the  United Kingdom during the year 1910  showed an increase of 152,103 tons on  that of last year; but wa3 the lowest  total recorded by Lloyd's for thirteen  years, with the exception of 1908 and  1909. With regard to war vessels, the  total for 1910 was 8415 tons more than  in 1909. As in 1909 and 1908 the Oversea states provided thelargest amount  of work for the shipbuilders of tbe  United Kingdom.  SPECIALS FOR THIS  WEEK.

This is one of the best of omelets for  those wo do not prefer a perfectly  plain omelet. It is made in much the  same way, the sauce being the distinctive change. First the eggs are beaten  together until well mixed and then the  hot water is added with a little salt and  pepper. This mixture is poured into a  hot, well-buttered omelet pan, -and a  broad-bladed knife must be run under  it occasionally while it is cooking until  the mass has become creamy. At  this stage the omelet must be folded  over with the knife in order that It  may brown quickly; - when it has  browned turn it out on a hot platter  and suround it with a sauce already  made as follows:  Melt two tablespoonfuls of butter and  add to it the minced onion and the  reen pepers, chopped. Cook slowly for  five minutes; then add the pulp from  a can of tomatoes (the rest of the  contents may, of course, be.used for  something else) and, cook for fifteen  minutes. Season highly* and take care  that It is very hot when it is turned on  to the platter holding the omelet.

After cooking for enghteen minutes pour off the  water and sprinkle the vegetables with  flour, salt and pepper. Turn into a  baking-dish, cover with cream or milk,  dot with butter and cook in a hot oven  until nicely browned.

Corn Pattiea Garnished With Husks.  -r-Green corn, three eggs, one cupful  fine cracker-crumbs, one-half teaspoonful sugar, salt and pepper.  This is a popular dish for luncheon  n the South. It calls tor enough young,  green corn to make a pint after It has  been grated. To the corn add two eggs,  beaten, and the craclser^crwnbs, and  season with tne salt and1 peper���������about  one-quarter ot a teaspoonful of pepper  and a teaspoonful of salt. Add the  sugar, and form the mixture into cakes  about the size of a large oyster; then  roll In egg and afterward in cracker-  crumbs. This may be "'done in the  morning, if yoif choose; the patties  being kept cool until the time comes to  fry them for luncheon!" fe- ���������  Wash the corn husks carefully and  shred the ends with a fork for about  tWo inches. Arrange theia tastefully on  a platter with the fringefhanging over  the sides. Cook the patties in smoking-  hot lard until they are - brown and  crisp; then heap in a mound in the  centre of the platter and serve at  once;  Chinese Sticks.���������-Mashed white potatoes, yolks of eggs, flour and smoking-  hot lard.  It is easy to prepart these for luncheon, and they are as palatable as they  are attractive. You may use any mashed white popatoes that have been left  over from another mean, -mixing with  each cupful the beaten yolk of an egg.  After sprinkling a board with flour put  the mixture upon it and springle it, too,  with flour. Roll1 down to a thickness of  less than an inch, and cut in "narrow  strips. Have ready some smoking-hot  lard, and, dropping the strips into it,  fry them until they have turned a  delicate brown. When they are done  life them out, drain, and serve immediately cn a hot dish.  Stewed -Chicken.���������One chicken, one  heaping tablespoonfuf butte, one heaping tablespoonful flour, one pint boiling water,' parsley, onion juice, one-  half cupful cream, salt and pepper.  Probably you have had over and over  again stewed chicken that was so  tough that you could not enjoy it at  all. But cooked in the way described  here the chicken should be most palatable. Take care that you use for the  dish a chicken that is really tender. It  should be cut Into joints as if it were  to.be fried. After being well seasoned  with salt and pepper it should be put  into the upper part of a double boiler.  Beat together the butter and flour until  the mixture is smooth, and pour upon  it the boiling waiter. Season this sauce  with salt and pepper and pour it over  the chicken. Add a spary of parsley  and if you like, a little onion juice.  After making sure that the water is  boiling in the lower part of the double  boiler put the chicken on to cook, pushing'the coyer just a little to one side.  Continue cooking until the meat Is  quite tender; then all the cream���������or  substitute rich milk, if that is more  convenient���������and cook it for ten  minutes longer. Serve on a hot platter  with a garnish of small, hot, baking  powder biscuits or triangles of crisp,  buttered otast.  How long it will take for the cooking will depend upon the chicken. One  that is young should cook In about an  hour and a half, ut an older tine may  require three hour's cooking. The advantage of following this method of  cooking is that the temperature never  gets as high as the boiling point, so  there is.no danger that the meat will  become hard and fibrous.

"Okanagan  Long vacations are usually utilized  by-theological students for experi-j  mental preaching. A better plan, J  thinks Dr. Harlam G. Mendenhal,  would be for them to experiment in  life; and journalism would offer them  the best means. Such occupation, he  declares, "would add to the mental  stature and give renewed vigor to the  body as well." In "The Homiletic Review" (February) we read some cf his  arguments in favor of this school.  Thus:  "Journalism will aid" in sermonizing.  The reporter expresses his thoughts in  clear, terse English. He k:io\ys what he  wants to .say and says it in a way that  is not only interesting but convincing.  He learns word-painting in describing  apples," thelegeud read on the menu  card.

Four men sat around a table in. the  dining room cf the C. P. R. hotel at  Sicsmous Junction. It was a February evening, and the swirling tides of  human travel and traffic had throwr-  !!;em together, from widely distant  spheres, for a few short hours wbi'e  they waited fc-r their trains, e.'st, and  south and we=t.

In  [the schools where there was'danger of  contagion, it was compulsory for the  nersons  who had  been  in  the  same  house or schoolroom where smallpox  was suspected, to. be either vaccinated  or stay  away-a  stated    time    from  school.    This   we  believe  is. a  wise  measure and one which would allow of  no adverse comment.

Should    welcome  those provisions as ������, foresight on jvthe  part of the public officials.   We do believe that to say a-whole school should  be vaccinated without the  choice of  staying   away    (fn   case  of  danger),  would  be  foolish   and   unreasonable.
