Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province  SUBSCRIPTION 11 A YEAI  IN ADVANCE  ������EC 19 19,0  VOLUME II  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOU VKK, British Columbia, DcO;  io,   Wiu.  COM. JAS. FINDLAY  Has announced to "The Call"  that he will again be m the  field as candidate for re-election as License Commissioner.  Who is Responsible  HONOUR TO WHOM HONOUR IS DUE; AND BLAME IN LIKE  MANNER. ��������� ;"      7^7 .''  No topic has furnished material this year for so much talk as  ���������our Vancouver streets. The citizens, as well as many of the officials  and elected representatives, have been fault-finding. And in many  cases the grumbling has been justly based. But are there no other  sides to this question?   If so, let us have a look at them.  First. Much of the condemnation is either extreme or unjust  on the part of citizens and officials. For instance', there is more  work under way tliis year. 1910. than at any previous period. Hence  there were never so many of our streets torn up as has of late been  the case. Now, would we as ratepayers have been willing to see it  different, speaking broadly, and allowing for some exceptions? My  answer is: We would not have been willing to wait. Each group  of owners and residents w������re determined t ohave no delay, and insisted on their own particular streets being torn up. for improvements. Hence, I say that the fault comes primarily upon the impa?  tient citizens, if there be any fault in this regard.  Again, much'of the trouble of this year comes over from last  year, and in turn last year had .its load, in part, saddled upon it  from the year ahead.   And so it goes.  Again,  fault,  laid upon the  engineer,  frequently, should  go  .straight to some of the aldermen.   And all men of aldermanic cx-  /perience know this to be true.   They, by vote, order certain work to  be done in a certain way.   For a quarter of a century this has been  one of the difficulties the engineers have had to contend against.  The talk of mayoral platforms is somewhat amusing, from year  to year. The re-arrangement of the entire engineering department  was, I believe, first put forth, as a part of my platform, over two  years ago. This is of little account whether I or some other person  was the first promoter of the scheme.. My plan was to have oue  authoritative, overseeing, and consulting engineer. Then under him  there should be a head of each of the three departments: Water,  streets, and all pipe-lines within the City.  Doubtless such a man could be had. and tlier^ with a wise distribution of duties among two or three heads of departments under  [\him, efficiency should be brought up to a maximum. I believe no  man on earth is big enough to do all the work crowded upon our  present engineer. With fair play, and within reasonable bounds, I  believe our present engineer could serve the city successfully.  Lastly: We should have a Street Inspector to render assistance,  and relieve the head of.the department. At one time we had a good  man in Mr. Wylie,.who was alive and always at his work. In every  part of the eity he was seen late and early. I do not know at this  moment whether the city is paying for an inspector or not. At any  rate, I never see such an official looking over the streets, and have  imtnWWy"m������h w^  I believe that an ex-alderman was at one time appointed to this  office. He may^still be drawing pay.. If so, I would be glad to know  ���������that he is earning his money. So far as I have learned, and I have  asked many times, he has not been very busy at the job this year in  this part of the city. I have not seen him on Grandview once, since  his appointment. If he be not now in the employ of the city I  hereby beg his pardon. .  I am sure there are from 500 to 1,000 humps and holes in our  streets, as the result of men putting in sewers, gas and water.   Good  [\ streets, as soon as made, are systematically and persistently torn up  by pipemen of some department.   Then they pass away to another  f,spot and destroy a similar portion, and so continue.   The humps and  hollows remain, and the street inspector appears not, so far as I  can learn, to immediately put such spots into a proper state of repair.  '.Then each citizen, who is inconvenienced by these holes and humps,  proceeds to curse the engineer.    Why has the Street Inspector no  responsibility and authority to attend to these matters?   If he has,  he does not overtake his work, even if he touch it in a slight degree.  Either have him with definite duty, or discharge him. As a  matter of fact, these numerous small spots, above referred to, could  be well handled by the ward foremen; and if they had standing  orders to attend to these holes and humps, then the citizens would  know how to place their hands on the responsible parties. Responsibility, definite duty and quick action are required. Surely the  Board of Works could, at one sitting, put this simple but perplexing  matter in train. Top much responsibility is placed on the engineer,  [and not enough upon the inspector and ward foremen. -  E. ODLUM.  December 15th, 1910. '  The Public Support Us  Highly Commend Attitude of the "Call.''  , "Uello. is that the 'Call'* Well, I want to tell you how much I  Appreciate your efforts to rouse public interest in the License Commission.  You're doing good work; and it was badly needed."  The foregoing was a phone message from one of Vancouver's best  citizens, and we are receiving daily scores of similar comments. The  public are with us in this effort rto rid the License Commission of an  element which is anything hut right. Com. Edgett has been growing fat  in the office, and is now trembling in his shoes because his record is being  exposed and seeks to stop the bombardment by specious statements to the  effect that he "intends to retire this year." So he wil 17 after election day;  that is, he will be elected to stay at home. The public is thoroughly dis-.  gusted with his actions and will insist ori. a change. s  The history of the granting of the license to the Van Decar Hotel  's interesting, and instructive as well. It illustrates what a man can do  under given circumstances, but our chief interest in it is because of Com.  Edgett's connection, and we purpose asking publicly for an explanation.  Last December Mayor Douglas gaVe a permit to the Van Decar, although  it had been agreed that no permits should be given.. There was some  interesting shuffling, however, in this case, in which Com. Edgett figured  prominently.     ���������  At a meeting early in January the formal application came up. The  mayor was absent and Com. Edgett was appointed to the chair. Com.  Crehan moved, and Com'. Findley seconded that the application bjc refused,  on the ground that the applicant was not a proper person to have a license,  and on this motion it was refused.  At the next meeting this'resolutioni wasmissing from the minutes,  and Com. Findley questioned their accuracy and asked that it be left over,  until the return of Com. Crehan, who was away. This was done. At the  next meeting Com. Crehan was present and questioned the minutes and  pointed out that the motion refusing the license to the Van Decar had  not been entered in the minutes, but in its place a clause "that it lay over."  He asked Inspector Robinson, the secretary, why this was done. Inspector  Robinson replied that "it was put in the minutes as directed by the chairman. Com. Edgett." After considerable difficulty the minutes were corrected.  The application was then brought up again and strongly championed  by Com. Edgett, but on the objection of Com. Crehan, supported by the  solicitor, that it was out of order, as it was necessary to advertise again,  it was laid over, but again introduced and finally granted, largely as a  result of Com. Edgett's activity. ���������  We ask Com. Edgett: Did you instruct Inspector Robinson to change  the minutes as stated by him; suppressing the motion refusing the application of the Van Decar, which you so strongly supported?  If so, what was the influence which induced you to so flagrantly violate the rules qf procedure and your public trust?" ���������       v  Does the Van Decar buy its suplies from you?  Did you not, as a member of the License Board last year, agree not  to authorize permits? ' ' ' ' ������������������'     -----������  Then why did jou write to Major Douglas urging that a permit be  granted the Van Decar in December of last year?  Com. Edgett dare not answer the questions which have been asked him-  through the Western "Call in its last Uve issues, and if he feels that we  are unfair or unjust in our questions and criticisms, we challenge him to  a full and open investigation of the whole matter.  The-majority of the license holders of this city are desirous of keeping  the law and would welcome a perfectly free commission. They would  prefer to purchase their supplies in the open market, without fear of  prejudicing a member of the Board. It certainly would be in the city's  interest that it should be so.  . We urge every voter to actively oppose, all candidates who use the  influence of office as a business asset, and to see that Com. Edgett is relegated to the class7of "and he also ran." / -  CONDENSED NEWS  -VANCOUVER���������The inquest on tlie  body of "George^EdwaftV Black; the- unfortunate victim of the .supposed poisoned supper given in his rooms at 892  Granville street on Saturday night, was  commenced Monday at the undertaking  parlors of Messrs.

Both Prince Rupert and Chilliwack have turned down the  [appeal made through the Scott Act.  This does not in.any sense show the true opinion of the people  lin these districts. Many Conservatives who are strong local option-  lists firmly believe that it is the intention of the Provincial Govern-  wnent to give a local option law and prefer to wait until such time  Ibefore supporting the movement, and further, they look on any  lattempt to force the Dominion statute as a distinct reflection on the  Provincial Government and tantamount to "a vote of want of con-  Ifidenee.  It certainly was unwise to attempt to pass the Dominion law in  {such Conservative strongholds as Chilliwack and Prince Rupert.  I In Chilliwack the sentiment is overwhelmingly "dry," but for  [these reasons many did not vote at all, preferring to await the action  I of the Provincial Government. . _  .  The contest ;was not a true issue between "wets" and "dries,"  jbut rather one of loyalty or otherwise to the Provincial Government.

Pugsley, replying  to Vancouver and New Westminster deputation, promises government assistance.  It is'becoming more and more evident each May that the crisis  is by no means past in British polities. The parties find themselves  in practically the same position which they held one year ago. The  only possible hope for the Liberal-Labor coalition administration to  carry on the government lies in the granting to the Irish Nationalists  home rule. This may seem to be simple enough, but upon second  thought one will be convinced of the difficulties whieh will face the  administration when they undertake to pass the measure in the  House. ���������'   77';  "Home Rule" from a Nationalist standpoint and Home Rule  from the viewpoint of a half-hearted Liberal, are two entirely differ-  ent propositions, 'and.'wefeel(safe"to predict that the measure will  never; pass. The Nationalists^ purpose demanding the "pound of  flesh." They are in absVdute; control and know it full well. They  will never, accept anyhalf-measure. Nor'willthey tolerate any compromise.      .'*'.���������������������������:  On the other hand, many Liberals have been held faithful to the  party by plausible arguinents re:a modified form of Home Rule or ,  the ..'hope.;that the party could-be returned with a sufficient majority  to be independent ������>f the Nationalists.   Their hopes are now blasted *  asto the latter and the Nationalists will attend to the former.  ,,  7-\''The-'jJnionists.Conservative party on the other hand remain unbroken.   They have not forced a clear issue on "Empire Solidarity,"  but it is clear that such.is the real issue, and it is safe to say that  the present conditions in political circles in England will force the ,  Conservatives to make thi|������ issue, a feature inithe near future; nntil  htis is done, and not uutil-theri, there will be chaos and strife in the  political arena.  One weakness lies at the door of the Conservatives, and that-is,  some members of teh party believe that all new and progressive ideas .  should be shunned?by a true Conservative.   This is not only absurd, ''  but entirely foreign to the true Conservative spirit. * J  Conservatism does not mean freedom from change, but reason  and caution in change. ' All true Conservative welcome advanced  ideas and moderations of social and economic customs made neees- -���������'  sary by"modern developments,.but.he desires to have them realized  by "evolutionary" methods, rather than by "revolutionary" means.  Not because he is "slow," but because he desires permanency rather *  than experiment. ti >  The present political unrest in England is simply a "refiner's "'  fire," through which the.parties are being passed, and! they must >  ultimately find their true'position and thus work out the destiny of   \  the nation and of the Empire.  ���������^ r:::i-rr  ���������       . ..������*'.  BOUBAS8A.  The latest move of this eratic politician is to go to Paris and *  declare that it is the fond hope of the Nationalists of Quebec to k  establish a "New trance" on the bank of the St. Lawrence..v  >���������   ^  He and his followers have a declared policy of establishing the  dtiaL ^uthudtji^if Erauce���������aude.8pJlie,in Canada.^jQiiebee will,not and  is not their only goal, but the whole oir Canada. v  The French Canadian sympathies were with Louis Riel in his  rebellion of 1885, aud it was his execution which changed the support of Quebec from the Conservative party under MacDonald, to  the French-Canadian opposition leader, Sir .Wilfred Laurier, and to  him they will remain true as long as he will sacrifice other national  interests to those of the Vatican and the racial sentiment m Quebec.  But now that Sir Wilfred shows some indication of being an Imperialist, they threaten to leave him in his old age and to make this  fire-brand Bourassa their leader.'  Bourassa is one of the most dangerous types of men possible to  have in a national life. He is clever, able, and a well informed man,  .but with .his whole vision ..distorted by. a blind adheranee to a Jesuitical sentiment which makes him incapable of even respecting the  rights of-.thosc who differ from him', in this respect.  His fanatical zeal and utter devotion marks him a most undesirable person to be a leader. He ���������will go himself to almost any  extreme and will incite others to do the same.  7 French nationalism is too-bitter a pill for the Conservatives of  Canada to swallowand they may-as well cease- tobid for.Quebec and  seek to solidify the loyal portions of the country and prepare for a  contest in the political arena on a platform of British Imperial  Nationalism.

CIVIC ELECTIONS.  There is unusual interest being exhibited in municipal affairs,  as is evidenced by the large audiences which are attending the various meetings.  The large Oddfellows' Hall, Mount Pleasant, was filled to the  doors at Mayor Taylor's first appearance in that ward.  His worship spoke at length on the state of civic affairs, and  made reply to many of the charges whicii Mr. Morrison was making.  His worship explained the lamentable state of the engineer's  department by showing that he only had the support of a minority  of the Council, and hence was helpless, and urged his hearers to  elect only such aldermen as would pledge themselves to a re-organization of this department.  The mayor enumerated a large number of different planks which  he was supporting, and appealed to his hearers to support him if  they were satisfied that he hjul done his duty*  The mayor was followe^py Aid. Stevens, who received a warm  and enthusiastic reception, and in a forceful speech outlined his work  of the year. In reply to a number of questions he stated that he was  in favor of-"eight-hourday," "the Dunsmuir-Keefer street bridge,"  "government by commission," "no bench grading." "of a re-or-  eranixation of the engineer's department." and explained the different items at some length. lie also stated, as the prime mover in  the annexation movement, that considerable progress had been  made.  At the conclusion of his speech. Mr. Geo. Healy'.moved "that  the ratepayers of Ward V. as assembled in that hall, do heartily approve of the work and efforts of Aid. Stevens, and pledge him their  support during the coming election."  Thi.s resolution was earthed unanimously.  Mr. Geo. E. Williamson was the next speaker. He .first outlined  the work of the License Commission, of which be is a member, and  ;i report of which niiiv be found on another page. He also spoke  strongly on the question of the engineer, stating that he could not  understand how any sane man could support the engineer, and if  elected he would do his utmost to secure his rapid removal.  Com. Williamson made a good impression and will no doubt  make a good practical alderman.  He was followed by Wm. Davis, Esq., but as the hour was late  a number of his audienee began to leave, and while in the midst of  h;������ address a large portion of those remaining also went. Mr. Davis  attacked present and past councils, and stated had Ward V. elected  him in past years instead of rejecting him, the state of civic affairs  would be much better than they were.  On the whole, the meeting was a thorough success, and if the  interest is any indication of what the vote is to be, there should be  a good vote at the forthcoming elections.        ^   .���������,;._?*_ .        ; $m#vw&.&*&miz&&-i  ������s������^5wis^7Eis5<^^^  1  1  -I  i'  s  1  It  a  i  THE WESTERN CALL  r  ^^^^^V^^V^^V^^V^^W^^M^^V  Mount Pleasant Livery  NEW STABLES - - NEW EQUIPMENT  2545   HOWARD STRET     4     -     PHONE 845  HACKS, BROUGHAMS, SURREYS,  SINGLE AND DOUBLE DRIVERS.  > Night Orders promptly attended to.

All permanent progress, in any, country  or any sphere,/ must and can come  only through education.  The Meant of Education.  In this ��������� matter we-propose that the  provinces of Canada shall adopt the  same method of informing and educating the people as that practised in  the state of Oregon. An official pamphlet should be issued by the provincial secretary to every elector in the  province at least ninety days before  each election. This pamphlet should  contain an exact copy of the measure  or bill to be submitted to the people.  Parties wising to file.arguments for or  against any bill or.measure should be  entitled jto-, do' so: ��������� T:h'ese arguments  should be printed and published as  part of the. official pamphlet and for  which the parties submitting such  arguments pay their proportion of the  cost of printing and publication. The  cost of insertion of arguments' in the  Oregon official pamphlet in past elections has been approximately one  hundred dollars per page. The incorporation of the official pamphlet into  the scheme of Direct Legislation is  one of the most important, and essential to the best success of the ^novation. If the legislature refuses to  provide this, along with the other  machinery, the people can easily possess themselves of it through the  Initiative law, by means of Initiative  petition. It is an interesting fact  that Direct Legislation was first actively promoted in Oregon���������or at least  forced into the sphere,; of practical  politics���������by business interests aiid  machine politicians who thought iney  could easily control public opinion  through the corrupt///influence of a  subservient press, 7T:he official; pamphlets, to which anyone 'who wished  to file an argument and pay the price,  had access, along with other unexpect- !���������  ed developments, completely upset thei  voters' lists in Manitoba than would  be necessary to provide the machinery  for Direct  Legislation.  This is a question- often asked by  those who are not wiling to trust the  people. Some imagine it will keep  politics in a constant state of turmoil.  These people forget that man is by  instinct a conservative animal. Revolution and frenzy only come upon men  and nations where the people have  long dwelt under tyranny and oppression. Where free institutions are.  men always take the course of least  resistance. Men only go to dangerous  extremes in the first taste of ungovernable freedom after the overthrow of despotic or oligarchic forms  of government. The period after the  French revolution .was a natural re  action from the corruption and domination of one of the worst governments  to which men have been known to  submit. The result was worse tyran-  ny-that of blood and war, of the doctrine of might is right���������with the mosl  shameful disregard for human life  and human rights the world has known  tn the history of modern times. Safety  lies in securing for the people the  maximum of responsibility with the  minimum of compulsion and the desire  of s people to do right because they  discern it to be right. This 'can be  attained only through education.  Direct Legislation is a most powerful  educator. The people are/capable pf  self-government. They always choose  wisely upon the main 7questfon ;i������:  submitted to them, after, sufficient  education Direct Legislation will give  them a chance.  A List of Opinions.

The cost of government under the  system of Direct Legislation is a point  upon which those unaccustomed to its  actual working ask many questions.  The cost of submitting measures to  the people is small. It is usually done  at the general elections in the ordinary course of events and by the same  officials who administer the present  election laws. The cost of submitting  large issues to the people is infinitesimal as compared with the cost to  some large corporations of campaign'  funds which are spent in effecting the  election of the politicians with whom  the corporations are in alliance. If  it pays a corporation to spend money  sufficient to finance election campaigns  on behalf of their favorites, will it  not pay the people to spend enough  money to give effective voice to the  management of their own business?

City for  the People: "The fundamental questions are: Shall the people rule or be  ruled? Shall they own the government or be owned b.v it? Shall the  laws passed and put in force be what  the people want, or -what the politici  ans and monopolists want? Direct  Legislation answers these questions  in favor of the people, and it is the  only thing that can answer them in  that way, except a miraculous conversion of the politicians to wisdom and  angelhood.'  Prof. Lecky, Conservative member  of British parliament, and author of  History of European Morals: "The  Referendum would have the immense  advantage of disentangling issues, separating one great question from the  many minor questions with which it  may be" mixed.

FOR YOUR  NEXT SUIT  The Editor, The Western Call.  Sir: ���������In response to an appeal made  j by the Vancouver World some months  ago for a distressed family, I made  a personal investigation of the case,  and found that Mrs. Robinson and  (now) four Infants were without support owing to an accident which occurred to Mr RobinBon, inwhlcliine  lost This leg. 7.  This brought to my mind those  beautiful words of Burns, "that man  to man the World oe'r should brothers  be,", and I immediately undertook we  duty, which proved to be a pleasure  owing to the prompt way in which the:  Vancouver public responded to my  appeal for funds, and generously subscribed three hundred and thirty-four  dollars (334). ^  had to request the return of the  deposit of fifty dollars, and negotiate  direct in Seattle, where Mr. Robinson  was satisfactorily put on Mb feet by  Mr. A. Lundberg.  I beg to thank you and all who so  kindly assisted me in this matter, and  .specially mention Miss A. E. Jones, of  [the Fairview Nursing - Home, who so  kindly undertook to'receive. Mrs. Rob-  iinson into her= home,:and care for.lier.  j during her illness, though circumstan-  ices prevented the acceptance of .this  liberal offer. In addition, many kind  people contributed articles of provisions and clothing.  The delay in the appearance of this  statement, I must, mention, was caused  by the failure of the agent to complete the order for Mr. Roblnsdn's  leg, and after nearly four months, I  STATEMENT.

For the past fifty years the total has  been 23,500,000, and in a single year,  1907, 1,000,000. 'Liverpool" sent over  300,000; Bremen, 250,000; Naples, 200,-  ; Hamburg, 180,000; and Antwerp, 120.-  000. The statistics show that the Immigrants represented forty nationalities. Seventy per cent, of them were  male. The other side of Ihe shield Is  shown, by7the vital statistics of the  United Kingdom, which prove tbat  there are more than 1,200,000 women  than men in Great Britain.

In  my opinion the    next licensing.  board should be composed of men of  practical ability, earnest and cojisclen-  tious  in  their efforts  to  build   up a .  moral and monumental dty, and men ,  who can be relied ou to do. their duty  ���������vithout fear or favor,, preferably men  ict supplying the goods of the* trade.

I should seek election from and ont  behalf of the whole community whose:  interest it would be my ambition tc*  faithfully serve.  Briefly stated now, my platform will  ')e for the general reform of the licjuor  (raffle.  If elected, my first action would be  to start the wheels in motion to establish a law to prevent any member of  the Licensing Board from supplying  any licensee with the goods of trade.

Rogers, son  of the   late  Standard    Oil   financier,  whose hobby is the study of military  ffairs, has just returned to New York  from  a  long   trip   of  observation, in  the army camps of France and Germany.   He brought home with him the  | unpleasant prediction that Japan will  I provoke war with the  United States  \ some time  before  the Panama canal  .is opened.    This is not only the belief of Capt! Rogers, but the concensus of opinion, he says, of the military men he met during his stay a-  Jbroad.    Rogers   is   a  captain   in  the  22nd regiment of the National Guard  (of New York.   Summing up what he  Igleaned   abroad,    Mr.  Rogers  said:  J'The control of the Pacific is between  [her and  the  United  States, and she  leans to get it.    Notwithstanding all  this recent peace talk in Japan, that  (nation is going to strike, and strike  aefore the Panama canal is opened."  FREEDOM   AT   LAST.  'So you're a butcher now?"

It is well worth studying.  "In most of the States of Europe,  with the exception of Germany, Austria-Hungary, Norway and Luxemburg,  such insurance is not compulsory, but  is a matter of mutual understanding  between employer and employed. The  following table shows the comparative  amount of insurance paid out by the  sick funds (Krankenkassen), and also  gives the number of insured:  INSERT TABLE  Employer  Pays One-Third.  In Germany the employer pays one-  third and the employee two-thirds ol  the fees. Norway has a compulsory  system for all branches of industry  up to salaries of M. * 1,515 for cities,  and up to M. 1,350 for the country  districts. The system was introduced  last year. The fees are borne for the  greater part by the workmen themselves (six-tenths), two-tenths by the  State, one-ten I h by the local authorities, and only one-tenth by the employer. Statictics compiled by the Im-'  perial Statistical Office on Accident  Assurance are .not nearly as complete  as the fore going. Accident insurance  in Germany comprises all workmen  and persons employed in trade am'  agriculture drawing a salary up t<  Al. 3,000.
