H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia,   DEC.  9,  1910.  No. 31  Bridges  Large Expenditure Demanded.  Three large and expensive bridges are being "demanded" by interested property owners this year. One from the foot of Burrard street to  Kitsilano. A second from Dunsmuir street to Keefer or Harris. A third  from Georgia street to Harris or Barnard. Aid. Hepburn, with an evident  desire to satisfy all concerned, has suggested that the last tow should be  welded into one. ���������������'.������������������������,  Briefly the position is this: The city cannot afford to build those  three bridges this year. So it simply remains to decide which shall take  precedence. Interested property owners arc pressing strongly for their  favored structure. Aldermen, with one eye on the coming elections and  one on the city's interest, are doing some lively side-stepping.  It is unfortunate that the council has not been able to adopt some  scheme of civic development, owing to the persistence of the Board of  :Works in retaining as engineer a man who is too small for his position.  The consequence is that matters of this kind are often decided by the  amount of pressure of the delegations, etc. '  The Burrard street bridge will be a necessity soon, but can afford to  wait at least one year. # ,  The  traffic  is becoming very congested  on   Hastings and   Pender  streets, and relief must be given.   Dunsmuir street to a point at or near  Keefer street would form the next street south of Pender.   This bridge is  "the shortest and the cheapest to construct.   It would immediately relieve  the present traffic congestion on Hastings and Pender streets, and should  \ be constructed without delay. /  The Georgia street bridge will also soon be an imperative necessity.  I This will connect with a point at or near Harris stret or Barnard street,  and must be completed befoie the Union depot is erected.   We are informed  on the best of authority that if this bridge is left over until next year  \ that a scheme will be laid before" the city whereby at least one-half the  cost will be borne by private parties, hence the wisdom of leaving it over,  The project to unite the two should be strongly opposed.   It would  only serve as a palliative measure to keep the interested parties in good  humor, but these same citizens, if assured that'their respective schemes will  receive attention as soon as conditions warrant and make possible, would  agree to any scheme which was undoubtedly in the city's interest.  (��������� - r���������; .  BRITISH COLUMBIA LANDS.  Government to Take Action.  I' -       Citizens of British Columbia will be pleased to hear the announce-  V ment of Hon. VV. J. Bowser that it is the intention of the Provincial  I Government to adopt new and' progressive measures relative to the Pro-  I vincial lands.   We have long contended that in regard to its lands British  Columbia has been exceedingly prodigal, but now with the advent of  Hon. W. Ross to the .cabinet as commissioner of lands, we look for some  definite policy.   Settlers, not speculators, should have the first claim upon  the government.  NEEDED LEGISLATION.  As the time for the assembling of the Provincial House draws near  (January'll) various personages, such as editors, politicians, reformers and  re-hashers, are full of suggestions of "needed legislation," we humbly beg  |-to tender our quota:   An amendment to the Companies Act which ivould  [make it illegal for promoters or organizers of joint stock companies to  yissue stock below par or to allot any promoter's stock."  The need of this is very obvious.   It would give bona fide schemes a  j chance to pay a dividend.  Take, for instance, a mining proposition.   A company is promoted to  [develope a mine, a million shares are sold at five cents per share, which  would give a working capital of $50,000, out of which is paid 20 per  cent, commission for sale of stock and organization expenses, which would  reduce the investment to about $30,000 to $35,000, and then it is expected  that this is going to pay a dividend on par. The chances are that the  stock will be boomed and resold at figures approximating par, thus.a'divi-  [idendat 7- percent, on par- \voul<Lbe about, 200 per _,cent2pn.._Ae^tual_  1 capital invested.  |\ The famous Le Roi mine of Rossland is shut down because it only  pavs about 3 per cent, dividend. The capital is $10,000,000, or a dividend  of $300,000. Now it is perfectly safe to say that out o'f the ten millions  jbf capital stock of this company not more than 5 per cent., or $500,000 ever  found its way into the mine, the balance being "water" or "promoter's  stock," thus the fact is, this mine is capable of paying 60 per cent, on its  legitimate capital instead of 3 per cent. Such cases as this is what ruins  our mining in British Columbia. 7  Huge original capital shuffled off on the public and manipulated in  such a manner that few enterprises can pay a dividend. The result is that  the property either remains idle or passes into the control of some sharpers.  There is a grave nccssity for lgislation which will make it impossible to  promote a company as at present, but which will insist that all stock subscribed be at par, and a strict accounting given of how it is spent.  COMMISSIONER FINDLAY URGED TO STAND.  Largely Signed Petition Being Circulated  ��������� A petition which is being largely ^signed is in circulation urging Com.  I Findley to again come forward as a candidate for License Commissioner.  Up to going to press it had not been presented to Com. Findley, so we  iare unable to state definitely whether he will be in the field or not.    It is,  i however, generally conceded that he will not refuse if the requisition is sufficiently strong.  FURNISHINGS AND CROCKERY ALSO.  It is commonly stated that the firm of which Com. Edgett is the head  ['will add to their already lucrative business a department of household and  [hotel furnishings, crockery and glassware. No doubt this enterprising  (.merchant recognizes a rare oportunity at this time for business expansion.  [Vancouver is growing very rapidly and hotels are being built which!will  (require large quantities of furnishings,.etc., and these lines should make  ia verv desirable addition to this firm's business.  FIRE LOSS.  The "Monetary Times" estimates the direct loss by fires in Canada  [to be $25,000,000.00.   This is a fearful sacrifice of capital investment to  this source. There must-be added to this the loss of life which amounts  [to 370 since January, 1909, directly caused by fire.  The chief cause of this terrible loss of property and life is carelessness.  [We require large sumsof capital in Canada but we are burning it up at  a pretty free rate, $25,000,000.00 per annum is rather heavy.    Much of  this could be saved with more care on the part of the people as may be  Iseen from a perusal of the causes, chief among which, is���������playing with  , matches���������smoking in bed'���������overturning lamps���������playing with stoves-r4amp  I explosions, etc   Carelessness which results in such loss of life, or even in  the risk of life, such as this is criminal. . .    ���������_>  4  He  esses  COMMISSIONER EDGETT DOES BUSINESS WITH THE  LICENSED VICTUALLERS.  According to reports of a special meeting of the License Commissioners held last Wednesday as made in the local evening papers. Com. Edgett  has confessed that he does business with the trade.  Judging from these reports, Mr. Williamson asserted that the articles  in the "Western Call" cast a reflection upon the Board as a whole. Let us  see if this is so: <    ��������� ,  Commissioner Williamson is a contractor and builder and consequently  does not necessarily depend upon the hotel business at all.  Commissioner Crehan is a chartered accountant with a very extensive business connection of the highest kind and therefore is totally independent of the traffic.  Commissioner Findlay is a financial broker and is not brought into  personal business relationship with the licensees.  7 Commissioner Edgett is a purveyor 6f supplies, such as meats, groceries and provisions, and which are purchased daily in large quantities by the  licensed victuallers. 7;  Mr. Edgett Does Business with the license holders as he himself declared in the above quoted reports. -���������'���������'"  The position of a commissioner is similar to that of a judge. He must  pass judgement upon license holders and upon new applicants. Would-we  allow a judge of any court to try a case in which he was personally interested ? Do we not refuse to permit the Mayor and Aldermen from becoming interested in City contracts? Then why make, any exception of Com.  Edgett'? Is he made <of such superior material that he can deal impartially  with a class of men who give him business aggregating $25,000.00 per  month ? Why did he offer himself for the only'position in the city: .by.  which he could profit?  There is now a clear issue and we'have behind us in this movement  all of the electorate who are interested in an impartial administration of  this department.  THE ISSUE.  Mr. Edgett declares he does business with the licensed victuallers.  If it wise to elect a person as commissioner who is so deeply and personally interested?  If he does not want the business why does he persist in offering himself for office?  If he has never favored the trade why do they support him. so strongly?  Does he not place himself in a position where he cannot possibly show  disinterested motives?  Do not his actions create distrust as to his motives?  The electors in any case must bear the responsibility if they elect a  man who does business with the trade.  What Commissioner WillamsoR Really Said  The reports in the evening contemparies would leave the impression  that Com. Williamson was trying to clear Edgett of the responsibilities of  his actions. -This is not the case: Com. Williamson's remarks were really  that Com. Edgett either clear himself of the charges made or else resign  from the Board.  Com. Williamson said "That such accusations as had been made in the  "Western Call" against a certain member of this board if remaining unanswered was a reflection on the whole board."  This is true. Com. Edgett owes it to the public to either answer the  questions or else resign. >  CONDENSED WEWS  i  SALT LAKE��������� Bandits-- held up-- tne,:. OTTAWA.r-Mr., .Justice.

British Elections  . I}16 ProBress of the British election to date of writing is distinctly  indicative of a preponderance of Conservative sentiment. There is quite  a number of sections still to poll, but now that over one-half of the constituencies have polled, it is pretty safe to predict that the Liberal, Labor,  Nationalist coalition will not have a working major iy.  The results are: Liberals, 133; Nationalists, 44; Labor, 25; total, 202.  Unionist, 189.  This means a net gain for the Unionists of three seats. It also shows  that the Unionist sentiment remains unbroken, while the factions which  go to make up the incongruous administration forces are still badly split up.  The Liberals will still b<- under the heel of the Irish Nationalists.  It also demonstrates the folly of a large portion of the electorate catering to the whims of a few prejudiced bigotted fanatics. The Liberals of  England are ruled by the small, insignificant Nationalist party, and thus  the whole administration is made subservient to them. Ultimately the  better sense or the people vi'ill prevail, and as another election will be necessary within a year, it is safe to say that at that time the Conservative  Imperial forces will win.      7 7       : '     v>   t  ^   r  it.\  V-fl  EMPIEE SOUDABZTY,  In an editorial the "Standard of Empire" has this to say:  "There never was a time when, for practical business reasons, Preference within the Empire was so badly neededras ;it is at this moment.   No  one can reasonably blame Canada for the commercial arrangements she  has already entered into with foreign countries. 7Every practical man knows  now that, failing the safeguard of Empire Preference, other, commercial  arrangements with our foreign rivals will be entered into by the Dominion  Oversea, to the ultimate detriment of British trade and Empire solidarity."  This is a solemn truth which should be constantly heralded from one  end of the Empire to"the; other.   Political partizanship falls into insignificance in the face of this great problem of "Empire Solidarity."  ;:    All questions of ^'Tariff,'V''Home Rule," "Navy Supplies," "Inundation," etc. should be analysed from this standpoint and no measure should  be accepted which does hot tend to advance the unification of Empire.  INDO-CHINESE OPIUM TRAFFIC.  ^ At a meeting held in Bangalore a protest was made against the Indo-  Chinese opium traffic, and an appeal was made to His Majesty's Government formally to end the connection of the Indian Government with the  export trade of China. Amongst the suggestions made was that the financial  difficulties created by the cessation of the opium revenue should be met by  the British Imperial and Indian Government in a way that should not increase the taxation of the mass of the people in India nor injure the Feudatory' States concerned.  i" ���������-]  TRAVEL VS. WAR.  _ Which Is Tto Most Fatal?  Last year (ending June 30,'1910) the railways of the United States  killed 3,804 persons, an increase of 1,013 over the previous year; they  injured 80,374, or an increase of 18,450.. We have not the figures for  Canada to hand at present, but they also amount up into very high and  alarming figures.    What is the chief cause?   There is no doubt careless- ,  ness and desire for speed, with single tracks are responsible for much.   The  railways of England ran for 18 months without a single fatality.    The  government-owned railways of Australia did not kill a soul last year.  This is a striking contrast to the United States and Canada.   The whole  question needs the "probe."  If we were at war and in a similar period had the same number of  casualties, we would see a nation of mourners, but this awful, wholesale  assassination continues and we remain unperturbed. It is a human sacrifice  on the altar of modern greed continuously offered with a refined indifference which makes the human offerings of the ancient Sun Worshippers  pale into insignificance.  r\  CARELESSNESS���������SELFISHNESS���������ITS RESULTS.

E. ODLUM  The papers and platform orators in the Old Land arc at the present  time quoting  Canada and  Canadian statesmen   in   favor of and  against  Protection.    Some think they sec in the actions of our politicians and in  the newspaper effusions of this Dominion, room tor claiming that Canadians are opposed to a change from present conditions; and others imagine  they can read the very opposite from our press and politicians.  What is  the  historic  evidence?    It j Of course he and his party had argued  is   short  and  easily   reached.    About  forty   years   ago   Reciprocity   was   in  force between Canada and the States.  Almost   without   notice,     the     States  broke the  treaty and erected a high  tariff wall between the two countries.  This brought into force the National  Policy of Canada.    Sir John A.  McDonald    went    into   power    on    two  rallying cries���������the    National    Policy  which   meant   "Protection"-���������and   secondly, the "AU Rail Route Across the  Continent."     These    two     principles  were   faToured   and   adopted   by   the  country, and have been put into telling effect ever since.  for Free Trade, and would now so do.  if all the civilized nations were willing  to adopt such policy. And so would  the Conservative party <lo the same.  Hut both parties have better sense  than to be fooled into any such  course, unless the other countries im-  ediately follow suit.  The United States know right well  that the only reason they have now  for their 'sudden "Face-about" is the  fact that Canada holds the whip hand  in the matter of raw material.

Don't permit the wild'demonstration.'
of temper, the screaming and kicking
which one sometimes���-in fact toe
often���witnesses. They: demoralize
both parent and child. They need
never be if the very first demonstration is checked.
Don't forget that a crowded shop is
a poor place for children. If you must
take them there teach "touch not,
taste'not .handle not."
Don't'expect "Yes, thank you, Mamma," or "No, I would rather not,
please, Mamma," if you omit to use
these small words yourself.
Don't forget that the lessons which
you learned at your mother's knee
are still sweet and tender memories.
History repeats itself.
Don't frighten your children into
obedience. The parent or nursemaid
who would dare hold up "the bogy-
man," the dark closet or the ashman
as objects of terror to their children
cannot be too harshly dealt with, for
they may be destroying a fine mind.
This may seem an exaggeration, but
it is a fact. More than one child has
been made a.: nervous wreck through
fear7-       X 'j::kk -.-.M -���/ 7        7;
Don't fail to make companions of
your children's school friends. Relive with your children the happiest
of all days-r-school days.
Don't f��t|l to enter with your young
son and daughter the beautiful world
to which they will so gladly make you
welcome if you are worthy.
Don't forget that you are their
queen in a very enviable kingdom.
Strive to realize your loyal subjects'
Don't make religious observances
a burden to your children. Remember
it is difficult for them to regard these
questions as you do. Let them grow
to it.
; Don't engage in conversation with
your bosom friends which would bring
a  blush  to  your  cheeks  were   your
children to overhear    you.     Believe
them present in spirit at all times. -   .
I Don't show partiality to "your children. You have no idea how keenly
this wounds;
Don't'forget, that this has more than
once been shown in school life, and
that, the teacher who shows it is
planting tares for you to uproot.
'    Don't forget that the orderly child
is  a blessing to himself as well as
/others.,- ,
| Don't forget that the wish that Is
gratified by some self-sacrifice gains
in value.
Don't forget that one of dear Louisa
Alcott's most beautiful memories was
"Marmce's smile and farewell wave
of the hand as we girls set forth upon,
our daily occupations." Let somebody
have the same memory of you.
Don't forget that the average boy
lives close to Nature's heart.
Don't forget that your children are
dally growing older, and that yesterday's attitude toward them may to-day
seem belitteling to them.
