"���������*  >>*s  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  "���������'yM  VOLUME II  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, MAY 5,   1911.  No.^2" J(/7^Y;^|  Fire Department  Vancouver is justly proud of her fire department, at least as far as outward apearance is concerned, but why should we not be? We have  lavished enormous sums upon its equipment,  many are now beginning to think that possibly  I it would have beeu better had we gone a little  |( more carefully.  For instance, last year we purchased the chief  a new auto, and again this year we are buying  |- another at $4,300.   That's "going some," as the  boys say.   It is true the auto purchased last year  II covered a lot of ground, there was never a lacrosse  match at New Westminster but, Vancouver was  represented by the chief> auto and occupant.  Tlien the chief found it necessary to make fre- -  ivquent trips  to  Bellingham,  Boundary Bay and  other interesting points.   No doubt a great deal  of valuable. inl'iu-nuiLiitii was giitherec1 in this wpv,  1 calculated to s:iv<> the eity thousands uL dollars,  etc.,  but  it  i<;  nn   np"n  qu^stion% if the  citi/ens  would approve of $4,U0O autob i'ur such trips dB  these as long as the G. X. Hy. is.rmmkig.  ,    Alderman Stevens raised an objection to the  chief getting a touring car and contended that  the city should purchase a two-seated car specially  \ equipped for a fire chief, said car to be used for  t going to fires.    The sugestion was, however, so ,  i monstrous that it threw Aid. Enright in a verit-  | ahle paroxysm of anger and he roundly denounced  )his fellow alderman for his presumption in questioning the purchase or anything else connected  I with the fire department.    His Worship Mayor  ITaylor also felt himself duty bound to register his  [objection to any suggested interference, with his  Ipet official or his department.  1   But "a closer examination of this department of ,  lthe civic administration will, we feel sure, reveal  Tponditions anything but satisfactory to the public, no matter how pleasant they may be to the  chairman of the Fire and Police Committee and  lthe mayor. ,  A couple of weeks ago tenders were called for  an aerial truck and a chemical auto truck.   Tenders were received from only three or four firms  t>ut of fourteen companies who could have tendered.   Seagraves & Co. put in a tender for $24,-  fiOO for the two, Stancliffe & Co. put in two separate tenders for about $6,000 less than the Sea-  brave's tender.   The fire department authorities,  lowever, got the Seagraves Company to separate  their tender after ttMT-Whtr tenders had Iieen  ipenecL then the Seagraves  tender  was recommended to the council, which brought out the  Iposition of Aldermen Stevens and McMasters,  Ind on their motion was referred back to the coro-  oittee.   From the answers of the chairman ot  he Fire and Police Committee to questions by  lid. Stevens it was learned that the $17,000 aerial  hick now owned hy the city, and which was  fcrchased from;the Seagraves people, was a.faille    "It was the first they had. constructed,  [id \ld. Enright.   In other words the city paid  Lut $17,000 for the Seagraves people to experi-  Lnt with.   Another peculiar point is that both  Fe chief and the chairman of the Fire and Police  bmmittee stated that the auto expert, King, had  {commended the Seagraves apparatus.    As a  Imarkable co-incident we would point out that  le Seagraves Company gave the civic auto expert  Sfre trip down East last month and an all-round  lod time    Why would he not recommend their  pparatus, even if it were $6,000 moreit  (then the_chief stated_thaLhe :������had drawn.the  deifications for the aerial truck and that the  [(graves tender im the only one exactlyY������ccordr  Erto specifications;"   WeTdo not doubt that, for  le specifications, no doubt, were drawn to wit  V apparatus made by these people.   The chief  ifo also that the Seagraves had a^few extra.lad-  Irs whichYhe explained, accounted for WW  Terence.    Our firm belief  is that all this is  tihy." and would stand some careful lnvestiga-  ������������ which, by the way, it is likely to get before  'inSther point raised by the chief was that the  ���������wrraves people would agre to keep "parts in  Ek in Vancouver. What do we find is the true  Editions! This same point was inserted in their  ���������mer contract, but in spite of it the city brought  ier $1,000 worth of repair parts from Columbus,  fid during six months from last August to  Ibniary of this year and paid 30 per cent, duty  I the same and express charges in place of  light.   This effectually disposes of that argu-  Hie citv should be generous towards its fire  iting equipment, but we draw the line at giv-  t $17 000 to Seagraves or any other companv  [experiment with-also at giving $6,000 extra  la companv because an expert says so, and to  Kplying touring cars, for fire chiefs. This may  | be popular, but it is business.  NEW ENGINEER.  Winnipeg Vice  Commission Report  The report of Judge Robson, of Winnipeg, on  the "Social Vice Question" clearly demonstrates  one or two things.  First, that the usually recognized "segregated  district" is contrary to law and a menace to public good.  Second, that the police of Winnipeg instituted  such a district in direct contravention of the criminal code.  The report is exhaustive and will do much to  dispel the illusion that "segregation is the only  solution." We hear so much along this line that  we are inclined to give more credit to its efficiency  than is merited.  The report states, "That such a state of things  should have existed and so continued is a reproach  to any civilized community." And further,  "Neither the Police Commission nor the Chief of  Police had authority to permit such "a state of  affairs. Their duty was to see to an unremitting  enforcement of the criminal law in all parts of  the city."  And again. "The law does not authorize anything but entire suppression of the offense."  - Judge Robson further states. "That illicit liquor  dealing has been general and continuous in these  houses, and that the result of the above state of  affairs has been the disturbance of peace and good  order in the locality, a menace to morals, and a  great depreciation in value of property of the  neighboring residents."  This report clearly puts it up to the authorities  that the responsibility is with them. The same  will apply to Vancouver.  A  "801" Real  Grievance  WINNIPEG STREET RAILWAY.  Winnipeg has been conducting a protracted  "fight" with the street railway company operating within the city. The contest has been waging  for a number of years, but it would appear that  the climax has been reached. Recently the company offered to sell out to the city for a stated  figure' and negotiations are now on for the closing  of the deal. In case, however, it is not concluded  the city is prepared to enter into competition with  the company, as the city's new power plant will  be completed in July next,- when the city will" be  in.a position to utilize its own power.  ' .The grounda.upon'Which Winnipeg has.Jiet aside1  the railway charter is "non-compliance with* the  terms', of agreement," "insufficiency of car service," "location of gas works," etc., etc.  Winnipeg seems to have discovered the way to  whip a belligerent company into line and succeeded in doing so.  FIREMEN'S UNION.  The firemen of the Vancouver force have formed  a union, .with the result that many citizens are^  considerably alarmed, fearing that should a great  conflagration break out-that the men might choose  that as a suitable time to go on strike.  The fire underwriters are particularly opposed  to the move, claiming that it is prejudicial to their  business.  In the first place, let us say that it is a,criminal  offense for a fireman to refuse duty except on  thirty days' notice, which, of course, protects that  feature. Again, we are informed that a fireman  cannot go on strike. If this be-the facts of the  case-then there-is little-to fear from-the union���������  We are, quite in accord with the sentiment that  the firemen should riot risk the lives of the citizens  or their property to settle an economic difference  whicii inight occur. We are inforriied, on the  other hand, that the chief reason for the formation  of the union is because of the actions of the chief  in promoting to the position of lieutenants nien  who haye only been in the employ of the city for  six months over, the heads of men who have been  on theiorce for fromjsix to,ten. years. 7    .  ;:\ If this is the case it clearly proves the incompetence of the chief and would warrant .an investigation, arid we are informed that it was with this  idea in view that the men formed a union.They  had appealed in vain to the chief, and finding it  useless, they decided to unite their forces and appeal to the Council.  The chief may contend that the men were not  capable of filling the position. This will hardly  hold water, however, because there are a dozen  or more men of upwards of five years' service who  have.yheen passed over, and if they are incompetent, why ar* they on the force? If they are  -capable, why were new men promoted ahead of  them?  As for.the union, the Council should insist on  a definite agreement "that the men submit all disputes to. a board pf arbitration, and that a strike  sh������ll not be considered, nor affiliation with any  other body." With this protection the union  would'not be objectionable.  Vancouver's new City Engineer has arrived and  ten up his duties. Mr. Fellows is a man who  lears to be possessed of the right sort of stuff  mdertake Vancouver's great problems. He will  mire to exercise,ar great ileal of patience and  Severance for the firat year, but fre feel eertain  E if he does this he has the rare opportunity ot  Iring a name for himself.   > ���������...      . ..  fee citizens will have a large part to play in  l success, for their attitude cmust necessarily  ely influence his work. We bespeak for the  engineer the support and co-operation of the  R������ns at large. Give him a chance. Rome was  [built in a day, nor a year. It takes time to do  (work demanding attention here at present and  chance should be given.  TAFT'S CHINESE WALL.  It is. real comical to read the expression of  Cousin Will Taft that the "Imperialists are trying  to build a Chinese wall along the- forty-ninth  parallel.'' One would think that our cousins to  the south had had some part in developing the  country lying north of said parallel instead of discouraging and despising in every conceivable way  the efforts of the Canadians.  it is all very fine for the advocates of reciprocity to talk of tariff walls, etc., but, after all,  the prime question of Canada is, "Whence came  our prosperity and how can we preserve it?" It  did not come frorii any help we received, from  Uncle Sam j that is certain,    y  'Our attention has been very forcibly drawn to  an incident which occurred in D. L. 301 last Saturday night and which, if it be as reported, is a  subject for investigation.  The following are the facts as we have them  first hand from a very reputable resident:  <About eleven p. m. Saturday a man named  McQuiston alighted from a,car at the corner of  Twenty-first avenue and Main street, and proceeded towards his home, when about 40 feet  east of Main street he was suddenly set upon by  th re ruffians and dragged into a dark corner,  where they began to relieve him of his money and  his clothes. He called for help, whereupon he  v^as beaten about the head unmercifully. His  cries attracted the atention of some persons on a  passing car;* also of the storekeeper, and his  assailants fled. The injured man staggered into  Mr. Atwood's store on the corner of Main and  rjventy-first streets-and asked Atwood to phone  for police, which he did, caling up the Vancouver  station, phone No. 6. ��������� The officer who answered  ��������� the phone hesitated about sending a man out. Mr.  Atwood explained that the man seemed severely  injured and required medical assistance at once.  The reply was that it was out of the feity's jurisdiction, but after further explanation they promised to send a man out, which was never done.  In .the meantime McQuiston, the injured man,  fainted, and Mr.. Atwood laid him out on the floor  and"gave his best assistance. At this point the  car, which had been going out at the time the  incident occurred, returned, and the crew called  in at the store to enquire regarding it and stated  that they had seen two men run from^the bush  into a house near the scene, also another man who  was apparently on watch, ''thus corroborating the  story of the injured man.  Mr. Atwood, observing the serious condition   ,  of McQuiston, called for Dr. Casselman, who came  at once, and upon examining the injured man ordered him removed to the hospital.   He phoned  for the ambulance at the police station, but was  Jtold it was out of their territory and suggested  :that he fin4 eome other  means > of  conveyance.  ' The doctor replied, that the man needed instant  attention and no time should be lost. At this  point a bystander reminded the doctor that D. Iy  30������ was part of the city and therefore had a right  -rta#jjpfc% ambulance 'call, ahdrthen fhe'poliee. con?  sented to send the ambulance, which, in due course  arrived. The driver asked Mr. Atwood a few  minor questions and that was all that was done  that night.  The victim was removed to the hospital, where  he will probably remain for a week or two. His  coat, shoes and $40.00 in cash are missing. Some  papers and his hat were picked up and given to  the driver of the ambulance.  The next day two detectives called on a couple  of. residents who were asleep when the incident  occurred and knew nothing of it, but apparently  - the matter was dropped at that point.  It is claimed that had the authorities acted  promptly there would have been some chance of  apprehending the footpads, but what is troubling  the residents of 301 is "where are they at" as far  as police protection is concerned.  ' Not long since a storekeeper was held up on  Westminster road and it is clear that some definite action is necessary. It is sheer, madness to  simply refuse help on a technicality. What is  ��������� required is-that-the-Police Commissioners of the���������  two districts (Vancouver and South Vancouver)  :'-:��������� get together and   decide on some   mutual plan ;"���������'  whereby reasonable..protection will be given.  'This case should stir up some;investigation wf  to who is responsible and how"-to prevent a recurrence of such a deplorable incident.  LABOR TROUBMB.  A strike usually results in a distinct loss to the  workriian, the emplp3rer and the public. In fact. 7J  a strike or a.lockout7is" an.-economic evil and  should be avoided if. possible. There are many  causes which lead up to the 8trike~-the avarice  and injustice of the employer; the general desire  on the part of the men for higher wages and better surroundings, but unfortunately the most  fruitful cause is the unscnlplous agitator. The  average workman is cautious and fair in his attitude, he is usualy desirous of making an amicable settlement of his-differences, that is, when he  is left to his own judgment, but when the professional agitator gets into a position of control there  is endless trouble. He is invariably7a,.glib speaker  and easily silences the more conservative members and succeeds in stirring up strife for. the  sake of trouble. The - regret-able feature is that  he rarely has anything at stake, as his salary, is;  going on all the time, both in peace and war, and  is usually a fat one. It would be well for they  interests of unionism if the judgment of the rank  and file could find better expression than is at  present the case. The referendum is the hope of  the masses in politics and should be perfected in  ���������;���������   the labor union. 7  At present there is a spirit of unrest throughout  America and Canada and many strikes are on.  The-tendency of modern public sentiment, if allowed to go its own course, is towards labor, but  owing to many questionable actions on the part  of men. who claim to be union men, but who in  reality are anarchists, the progress of this.sentiment has been checked and these same extremists  are playing directly into the hands of th e unscruplous corporations.  Frank public discussion of the various economic  questions will do more to advance the cause of .  labor than any quantity of secret and subtle negotiations.  Grandview    /  >  The remarkable development of the Grandview  district is one of th e outstanding features in the J  phenomenal growth of the city.   Only a few years  ago this district was a wiidcrnes of. huge stumps  ,  with the single track interurban line traversing  it; to-day it is a thickly populated city district,  and where the single track car line ran is now  one of the busiest retail business streets in the _  city, with numerous fine business blocks.  This change is due to the central location of this  section in its relatiou to Greater Vancouver. Park >  Drive is destined to be one of Vancouver's great  business thoroughfares supported by- a densely  settled residential and industrial district.  The business men of Grandview deserve great  credit for the substantial way in which they have  built up the district. It shows the faith they had  in their enterprise and this has been fully justi- '  fied. The various firms established along Park "*  Drive carry as complete stocks of goods as could ,  be found in any section of the city, and at prices  -which will compare most favorably with any  down-town houses. One thing is certain, that if  the residents of this district will support the local  houses along Park Drive and adjacent thereto,  this section will have a still more rapid' development. We do not wish to be sectional, but in  order to ensure a uniform expansion it is necessary to support the business houses which are contiguous to our homes; that is, all things being  equal as regards prices, etc., and this, we contend,  after careful investigation, is the case. We should  not encourage the congestion of business in the  centre of the city, but oh the other hand should  encourage and patronize local distributing places  of business.  ��������� Some of    our   worthy, citizens   who   simply  through habit, take a car to the old business centre and do "their shopping, are unaware of how'  much trouble and expense they would" spare themselves by merely .investigating some 4>f the-fine, re- \  tail establishments in Grandview. ;lt is certainly  worthy of a trial and we are convinced would be a  revelation to;TOariy- who have-ithel'!down - tow*  habit."  A c  <*��������� u m  TBE TEN COMHANDWENTS.  We read that*the Very Rev. Wm. Mordaunf  Furneaux is to undertake the revision of the Ten  Commandments. It seems that the "Tenth" does  not suit him and some of his scholarly friends.  For the benefit of some readers who may have  b< come rusty on the commandments we will quote  No. 10: "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's  house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife,  nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his  ox, nor his ass. nor-anything that it thy neighbor's." * His very Rev. Htghnes proposes to simplify this by substituting: "Thou shalt not  covet."  Now according to modern scholastic tastes the  latter may (!) be the better, but of thia we are  sure, it has not that strong, definite imperativeness about it which characterizes the former.  ���������Thisygentleman^ also proposes" to "remoder the-  other commandments, especially the second (regarding idolatry) and the fourth J (re the Sabbath day)Y Y  Our; firm conviction is''that the average modem  theologian is a humbug. He simply seeks to tamper with the Scriptures to satisfy his own vanity,  believing that the true insignia of the scholar is  to be able to suggest some form other than that  contained in the Bible.  The rank and file of the laity are concerned in  the truths contained in the Scriptures and are  quite satisfied that the language of the authorized version is quite the most perfect literary  work in existence and cannot be improved by introducing modern "short cuts." There is a grave  danger that the tendency of the economic world  for business short cuts and abbreviation (in itself  good) wil obtrude itelf into the world of art.  literature and religion, and that this age will be  noted in history as the age which destroyed,  rather than produced, works of art, literature and  religion.  Just as we go to press, we  are informed of the passing  away of Dr. Robson. one oj the  oldest missionaries of British  Columbia. The funeral will  take place on Tuesday, May  9, at 2:30 p. m. from Mount  Pleasant Methodist Church.  The remains will lie in the  church from 10:30 a. m. to 2:30  p. m. on Tuesday.  \      rfij  '-    -  ' (r.l  ,JJ4  y  ^"1  M  s' * y  1.

(Hope News)  .With the' rapid advancement of  Hope and/ with its unprecedented,  speedy increase of population, it will  become not only advisable, but actually necessary to incorporate as a  city and to have a manicipal government of our own. The business men  all realize this, and there are few, if  any, of the residents and property  owners who are not thoroughly in  harmony with a movement in that direction.  There are many and. weighty reasons advanced by those who discuss  the question of incorporation, the  principal- one being that only by taking such a step the many Improvements we need can be secured, within  a reasonable period.  The,can be no doubt that we need  a sewer system and watermains. Our  streets, both in. the city proper and  the roads that lead- In various .directions out of here, are sadly in need of  repair. We are certainly away behind  the times in having no telephone connection with each, other and with  neighboring towns. There are no  idewalks and no electric or gas lights;  in fact, we lack nearly .every public  convenience we ought to have.. ,  And how are we going to get these  modern -Improvements . unless we install them ourselves? The powers that  rule in Victoria have time and over as.  sured us that they are, greatly interested in the welfare of Hope, and per-  |haps they are, that, but whenever they  are petitioned to do any , particular  thing that needs doing badly they  procrastinate at first arid afterwards  they forget it altogether. This is a  large province and many communities  are .clamoring for governmental aid,  so, of course, some of them, have to be  sidetracked, and It has been our fate  to be among,the latter number.  When we have, a municipal government we can do much of our own improving, especially now.tlnce we halve  a court who Is not slow in levying  lines' on offenders brought before him.  These fines now go Into the provincial  treasury In Victoria. Why not keep  them in Hope and use them to good  purposes? Oo to Merritt, which is the  latest city incorporated; in our near vicinity, and you will find that everybody there is pleased with the result ji  and tbat incorporation has benefited jj������  them largely.  However, these things are not ac-J^  compllshed by inactivity. We have tc  go to work if we expect to succeed.  Let the progressive people get >��������� together and start the movement for a  bright City of Hope and let them stay  with it until success crowns their efforts.        ,   '"  It will take some little time and  some energetic work until ultimate results bring the men who take charge  of tbe campaign their reward, but will  not only have bettered their conditions  but wiiralso have earned the-thanks  of their fellow citizens.  There are plenty of live men in  this town, who are well qualified to  take the lead in this matter; all they  have, to do is to get together, but when  each of them waits for the other individual to take the initiative nothing  can possibly be accomplished.  the deputy public' prosecutor meant.  At 11 o'clock that "evening, 3. whole  troop ot soldiers rushed into my cell,  with Detective Dovas at their head,  and began to beat me mercilessly, belaboring me with their fists, kickiDg  me with their heavy, boots and dealing  me blows' with the buft end ot their  rifles. Blood flowed from deep wounds  on rny hands, my legs and my whole  body 1 was then seized and dragged  to the top of the building, where the  inquisition chamber was situated at  that time.  To the Inquisition.  "With a blow, dealt with the butt  end of his ribe, one of the soldiers  pitched me into the room in which  a table covered with red cloth stood  in the middle. On this table an imperial eagle was placed by way of decoration, and around it were sitting  the inquisition tribunal, consisting of  Chief of Detectives Piatnizki, Chief  Warder Sobetski,:; Deputy Warder  Michejeff, Detective Dovas, the civil  official, Alexandrpff, and an officer  whose name t have forgotten. ' In  front of the table was a raised platform surrounded by a high/railing. On  each side of this platform' atoOd two  executioners with whip's, constructed  of thick ropes filled with lead at their  extremities. '     ������������������-..���������  '.'Sobetski turned to me and said:  'Young man, here arc four walls, God  and myself. What I want to do, I can  dot If I choose td doBo.l shall'beat  you till you are dead, or I shall make  a cripple of you.. Nothing can happen  to me for doing this, so that I advise  you to confess.'  "Dovas thereupon mentioned a number ot murders, and declared that I  had committed them, whereupon, at a  sign from him, the two executioners  bounded upon me. Now began an unequal but desperate, struggle. All the  members of the tribunal' rose from  their seats and participated in the torture. Sobetski sprang upon me, placing, his knee upon my throat, and began to throttle me. Michejeff kicked  me on the head. Dovas held my legs,  another held my hands, and the remainder beat me.  Cold Water Bath. -! 7  "The pain of the blows was excruciating,, and owing to the pain and  loss of-blood I became unconscious,  subsequently recovered to find myself  drenched in cold water,, and7 surrounded with a pool of my own blood,  Immediately after my recovery, my  hands were bonnd behind me and  placed in an iron instrumeht, de-  (Continued on page 4)  mm*:  I  FOR  Duality, Quantity, Civility, Rapidity  TRY US. ��������� ���������..'->>  Cochrane & Elliott* Grocers  Phone 8792  615-617 15th Avenue & Westminster Road  We Are Doers, Not Talkers ^    ,\:  > t      ���������        A-  I The House   WAL������j  PAPER        ���������  mm  A.

WESTMINSTER: AVE, and FRONT ST  Berlin, Germany, April 28.���������A Rub-  Bian journalist, Carl Mizlt, who was  arrested in 1906 on a charge of sympathizing with the reform government  in Russia and was thrown into prison  at Riga without a : trial, relates the  following story bf the tortureB which  were inflicted upon him during his  period of incarceration:  "I was arrested in March, 1906, not  because I had perpetrated any definite deed, but because the police had  conceived the idea that I was secretly  in sympathy with the reform movement and that I was aiding the "cause  of political progress in Russia.  "First of all, I was brought to the  police headquarters at Riga, where I  was subjected to a rigid search. During my examinations I refused to  make any statement except that I protested against my arrest and demanded to be tried in public. Deputy  Prosecutor Buslo and Colonel Von  Anronious then came together to my  cell and asked me if I was willing to  confess to my 'crime.'   I refused.  "Buslo, leaving my cell, turned to  Chief Y of the Detectives Piatnizki,  with the words: 'Now/you ask him in  your own way,' while he shouted to  me: Tomorrow you will tell a different tale.'

Horrors of Russian Prison  (Continued from page 3)  scribed with a kind of grim humor as  the bracelets.  "Alexandroff then beat, me on the  back of the head, on the neck and on  the back with a rubber knot filled  with lead at the end. It seemed to me  that my head was splitting, that my  eyes were starting out of their sockets,  and I foamed at the lips. In my ears  1 heard indescribable noises, before  my eyeB 1 saw fiery circles. I became  dizzy and again lost consciousness.   -  "Once more I was brought round by  buckets of cold water, and again a  demand was formulated that I should  make a frank confession of my sins.  Again I refused, saying that I would  rather die than admit the perpetration  of a crime of which I knew nothing  whatever.  Bloodthirsty Pack.  "This whole pack of bloodthirsty  houndp then-fell upon me again with  bestial rage apd began to repeat the  process of torture, one Of them pulling  out my hair with a pair ot pincers.  Another burned my flesh with the  glowing end of his cigar; others used  their cigarettes for the same purpose.  y face was swollen and I could only  see out of one eye. At that moment  1 had one burning desire, and that was  to die before I suffered any more. My  martyrdom seemed to be endless. Finally I began to shriek, much to the  pleasure jof my torturers. They continued their work of cruelty until the  break of day disturbed them and  caused them to bring operations to a  temporary termination. . Then they  made a report and conveyed me back  to my cell.  "That was the beginning of my  martyrdom in prison, but it   waa   a'  merely typical example of what I repeatedly suffered during my period of  incarceration, extending over two  years. I am in a position to state  that many other.political prisoners.at  Riga' were treated in the same way  without ever'"undergoing .any public  trial, and in many cases without there  being a shadow of proof that they had  committed- any offence whatever  against the laws of the land."

It was understood that their representative, Mr.  Alex Lucas, had already assisted in  having a deputy of the. public works  engineer Instructed to visit Ashcroft  and take levels in regard to sewers.  A committee consisting of Dr. Sanson, Messrs. Murphy, Haddock, Ward,  McGillivray and Richards were nominated to draft a petitoin to the government asking that steps be taken  immediately to adopt some system of  sewerage, and it was. thought that with  the assistance of the government the  town could construct a system which  would cope with its. present requirements. Dr. dieorge Sanson emphasised  at length the risk the town is now  taking under its present conditions of  a typhoid epidemic and all present  were convinced that urgent steps  should be taken.

' MONTREAL, May 3rd, 1910.���������With  the problem of accommodating a population of one million five years hence,  staring her in the face, Montreal is  planning to rob Father Neptune of  nearly a square mile of territory in  an effort to provide additional, room.  Os iri the case of many similar cities  the plan in question simply proposes  reclamation. In tWa case the reclamation will be from the river involving  an amount of land which will be worth  something like a million dollars. The  idea orginated with an engineer who  has acted in a consulting capacity, in  the erection ot some of the largest  buildings in tbe city, and has made a  specialty' of foundation and caisson  work. 'His idea, in brief, is to lengthen the Island of Montreal by the erection of sea walls, behind which the  space could be filled in by pumping,  sand from the channel. Chimerical as  the scheme may sound at first hearing  htere appears to be no reason why1 It  should not. be carried out, since .the  value of .(he made land will far exceed the cost of its creation. Of course  until borings-, and surveys have been  made it is impossible to more than  roughly estimate the cost of an undertaking, but it in believed that it would;  not only pay for itself but would leave  a handsome profit besides.  PAYS LARGE INTEREST BILL.  Cheques totalling $918,897.51 are being sent out from the City Hall as  a cheerful .May Day present from the  city to its various creditors. The whole  sum comprises Montreal's half yearly  payment of Interest on the various  civic loans, Including interest on the  loans of the several .municipalities  which were last year annexed to the  city. Nearly two millions of dollars  are expended each year in this way.  The sum of ������94,509 18s 4d. goes  to the Bank of Montreal in London.  ������19,204 2s Sd. goes to the National  Bank of Scotland in London and ������46-  08. 6d. goes, to the Bank of Scotland  in Edinburgh. - .  The foregoing amounts are'equivalent to $553,632.25 in Canadian Cur-  rency,,4nd the, balance of the interest  is madfe up as' follows? Coupons payable in New .York $66,495.50, coupons  payable in Montreal $li8,103.48, registered stock dividends payable in Montreal $94,116.28; Catholic School Commission coupons? 11,000.00,    , -  Special evangelistic; services began  in the Gospel Hall on Westminster  Road in Cedar Cottage by D.

The concert was well attended.  SOUTH VANCOUVER.  A pleasant musical evening was enjoyed by many of the parishioners of  St. Mary's, 8outh Vancouver/ who  gathered together to welcome" the Rev.  Owep and Mrs. Bulkeley at 8taples'  iHalljlast Thursday evening. Several  speeches were, made to greet them to  whieh the rector replied inspiring' the  people to awake to their religious responsibilities, and begin by building  a church worthy of ita name on '-a  suitable plot of land which he hopes \.  someone will feel it a privilege to give  for such a holy purpose. The idea is  a good one. So let us all hope that  some of our rich neighbors will embrace the opportunity, and not let such  a chance of "well doing" slip by.  The debate at the South Hill school  was a great success and the room  was crowded. The evening was  opened witn some choice musical selections, after which some very good  speeches were made by the Rev. Merton Smith and Mr. Hodgson, who were  ably supported by Mr. Kern and Mr.  W. Miller. Mr. McArthur, J. P., was  in the chair, and the arbitrators were  the Ret. W. H. Redman, the Rev. John  Pye and Mr. Parsons. The speeches  were humorous and clever, each side  carrying their points with weight, and  at tbe end of the debate there were  sixty marks for annexation-and forty-  two against it -  A vote of thanks was especially  given to Mrs. Batchelor for, her beautiful song and' all who have had the  pleasure of hearing her sing know  she'deserves ber well merited praise.  Mr. McAfthur closed the evening by  thanking all the ladles for coming to  the meeting, as he felt their presence  kept a quiet and orderly audience, and  he hoped they would come again, after  which "God Save tbe King" being  heartily sung, the people retired.   t  We hear Wards HI. and V. are taking up. the annexation question thoroughly and-it is probable a resolution  opposing the unity will be submitted  nt their meeting shortly.      _ -  We are very sorry to learn that Mrs.  Greenslade was taken seriously ill a  few hours before her intended departure to New York and England, and Is  now at the General Hospital, having  undergone an operation for eppendi-  citta:' ' ...

The housecleaning mania is so useless. It comes over some women like  an ague iu the spring of the year.  They make no effort at self-control; it  is a perfect orgy from the start and  the family, the servants, and any unfortunate friend who runs counter to it  must suiter the consequences. Why  they do hot do a little at a time instead  of upsetting the whole economic system is one of the unsolved mysteries.  One sympathizes with the man, who,  having worked Dhis way to fame and  fortune, built a beautiful home. To  his housekeeper he gave one instruction: "Keep the house clean, but the  servant who leaves a dust-pan where  I can see it will be dismissed/'  Besides introducing- system into the  chaos of housecleaning the modern up-  to-date housekeeper calls to her aid  all' the labor-saving devices she can  commandY Benzine and gerosene are  her friends/ and, if possible, .in clean  drooping spirits to merriment.  When the furniture has been covered with a pretty cretonne instead of a  chintz, which would be cold to "the  feel," and also in appearance in a  dark room, and magazines, books and  papers have been strewn about, the  owner of the apartment will not need  to sigh the deep sigh of consternation  and despair when she enters what  once was the most miserable room in  the house.  For seasonable hot-cross buns put 1  lb. flour into a deep mixing bowl with  a pinch of salt, and rub-into it 2 oz.  of butter, add 2 oz. mixed peel finely  chopped, i oz. of currants and a little  mixed spice;: Make lukewarm " 3-4  pint milk,!add 1-2 cup of .sugar, and  then pour it on 2 oz. of compressed  yeast in a small basin.

' lamTplace  hear-the  life for half  an  ��������� Small ruga are better cleaned at  home than^ sent to the professional car.  pet cleaner, who does not understand  the- different treatment required by an  oriental rug from a domestic and fo)  lows: his usual custom; of ��������� tacking one  end of the nig to a revolving. wheel,  which tears and whips it to pieces.  Take small-rugs-to the roof or grast  plat and1 beat with a light whip or rut  beater on the Burface; but never on  the back, which tends to break the  warp and woof, thus, destroying the  fabric. After beating the face, which  brings; the dust to the surface, brush.  off with a broom or snow, sweeping  with the nap, not against' it. - If a rug  becomes badly soiled, Wash it.. Do not  allow'large rugs to be cleaned on the  floor.. Whilejthe /widely . advertised  process of cleaning without the necessity of taking rugs up, gives the surface of the rug a fresh, bright look, it  ls sure to rot the fabric. The dirty  water, soaking.through the carpet, hae  nd way of escape and leaves a stratum  of mud between the warp, which soon  or late weakens the threads. If beaten  at home. It may afterward be spread  upon the floor and soiled spots washed  out with a solution ot soap bark or  borax, and water,, allowing'an ounce  of the bark to a gallon of water. . It  this is done carefully, and then- the  surface wiped' off dry with a cloth  wrung out of fresh water, the rugs  will emerge clean, lustrous, and in  nowise injured. Some, In summer,  think it a saving of their rugs to turn  them .upside down, walking on the  back. This is a great mistake. -Wear  on the surface of a rug makes it all  the more silky, hut. on the reverse  tends to break and injure it.  The Girl's Qomain.  Tbe daughter ot the house also becomes affected with the germ and  plans for her own domain. Here is'  what one girl did: The ceiling' of  her room was low, and she kalsomined  it a pure white. The paper was hung  the full length ot the wall with a narrow white molding as a finish at the  ceiling. The woodwork was given  three coats ot white paint, and then  two" of" ehamelr ~ The - bed and���������the  dresser were treated in the same manner.  An old table was pressed Into service, whitened, and with an oval mirror hung lengthwise above it took; new  lease of life as a dressing table. The  floor waB stained a golden brown. Such  a dainty little nest it was when finished.  Brightening a Dark  Room.   -  Then- some housekeepers, especially  In the city, have to contend with at  least one room which is badly lighted.  In the winter time the question is not  so urgent, but with tne approach of  spring the problem becomes acute. ~  A great deal can be done to modify  the. surrounding gloom by the use of  white paint, paper of a sunny yellow  hue, thin net curtains over the windows, and the elimination of all heavy  ones. There should be light picture  frames in the room. Almost every  one now is choosing dark woods for  the purpose, but white, gilt and a pale  shade of silver gray should obtain in  a room that is not naturally light and  cheerful.

Schumann and Mendelssohn were  contemporaries, and in the field of  music they were opposites, just as  Handel and Bach had been a century  before. Mendelssohn was a composer  who loved form and elegance of expression, and who even in his most'once sai,_ 0f him;  tionB imposed by strict! adherence to  musical form,' and to give free  abandonment to the emotions. He  opened the way for Liszt, Rubinstein,  Chopin,, and in fact, every other modern composer, for the Keynote to the  difference between the more modern  music and that of the older composers lies in its romanticism. Wagner  'Schumann has a  tendency towards greatness." But  composers are never fair judges of  other composers. Though Schumann's"  music is too odd, unusual and subtle  to be readily grasped by the many  even today, yet the praise in Wagner's  remark held more truth than the  sneer. Schumann is to-day, and always will be, considered as one of the  greatest of all the composers.  Schumann was more than a composer���������he was an excellent journalist.  He established the "New Magazine of  Music" in 1834, with which he was  connected for ten years; and in which  he sought to develop musical-art. His  criticisms were of an unvarying kindness, and his essays are valuable a*  the present time.  EARLY Cl.ww.NG.  Cash   Grpeers   and  Provision Merchants  NOTE THE ADDRESS  Cor. 261(1 & Main  PHONET032  (From Saturday Sunset.)  For many years the closing hours of  bars in Montreal has been 12 o'clock  'at night. Recently these were re-  duced to 11 o'clock every week night  except Saturday, when the bars niust  'close at 7 o'clock, as they do in Ontario.   That this is practical temper-  'ance, was shown by a recent protest  of the saloonkeepers of that city who  declared that their most profitable-  hours ha<l been shut off and as a re-  suit they proposed to increase the  price of hard liquors. "Let us examine  this statement tor a moment.  It is declared with emphasis, and no  doubt with truth, that the last hour  from 11 to 12 is the most profitable  of the day. Why ? Not nearly so many  men are to be found in the bars after  11 o'clock as will be seen there between. ,5.30 and 6.30.

But Schumann was the pioneer  in what is known as the "romantic'  school" in music.    He was    a    rebel  against  formalism, and  at one  time  utterly  refused  to have  anything to  do with the study of musical theory.  He contended that if a man were a  true musician and had the true feeling  for music, it would be impossible for  him to commit any great faults    in  composition.    He  lived    to    entirely  change this opinion and to regret that  he had not taken pains to learn harmony and counterpoint in his youth,  but his ever having held such ..beliefs  shows us what a strange mind was  his���������a compound of romanticism, melancholia and    aggressive    radicalism.  He was not afraid to state his .beliefs  3���������Term. City Press   West. Call WCJ  or to fight ior them.    Though there  was never any active opposition between  the leaders of' the    different  Schumann���������Schumann gradually, bbb  schools    of    thought ��������� Mendelssohn  and Schumann ��������� Schumann gradually  agthered about himself   a group    of I  young radicals with ideas similar to j  his own, who did all in their power to  break down the formalism which had |  been  characteristic  of all  preceding  composers.   As someone aptly   says: t  "Mendelssohn was the very Tennyson i  of music, while Schumann    was    its  Walt Whitman."   To' those who know  the two poets and the great differences '  in their poetry the remark is illumin-1  ative. I  One who knows Schumann^ music  well must be struck by the oppositional character of it.   His music was  always emphatically   just   Schumann  himself.    His own thoughts arid feel-,  ings and experiences are all portrayed _  in his music.   And there almost seem  to have been two Schumanns���������one a  sensitive,   dreamy poet,   the  other a  sturdy,   aggressive reformer.     Schumann himself perceived this odd fact,  and he called himself by two names.  The fiery nature he cai:ed������Ivlorestan,'6  the dreamer was "Eusebius." and in  writing his compositions he used  to  sign the music with whichever name  was in accordance with tbe mood of  the work.    Liszt sums Schumann up,     - ^     ^   Jncapable of taking care  by the statement that   he   waB "theitae-y ������ecome h������*i������* .        greatest music thinker' since" Beethoven." He had certainly a very wonderful, as well as very peculiar, genius.  Schumann bad a mind given to  strange fancies, and with a tendency  to morbidness. His sister had been an  hypochondriac, and her death threw  Schumann into a state of melancholia  verging on insanity. - Dark days and  times of the deepest mental depression came often to him, an dat such!  times his inspiration seemed to be  crushed out by the weight of the men.  tai burden. He always wrote most  and best when he was happiest. When  kmm.Mm*M  ;%Y-?Y<ysgMyg  17  Customer: "How do you know the colon in Shirwin-William$  Paint.

The difficulty    in    enforcing    early  'closing arises in the rights of citizens  came from him as come the songs from  happy birds. The wedding year of  1840 found him bursting into song and  telling of his happiness in "Poet's  Love," and. in "Woman's -Life- and  Love"���������-a cycle that told of his Clara's  experiences. Besides these two great  est of Gerfan song cycles, it was  that year also that he composed his  beautiful B flat symphony, a perfect  paean of joy, which he originally intended to have named "Spring Symphony."  In 1843 he became a colleague of  Mendelssohn in the. new conservatory  at Leipsic, but, during a tour through  Russia which followed this, distressing  symptoms- of his-mental malady again  showed themselves. In 1850 he was  appointed to a musical. position at  Dusseldorf, and the life on the Rhine  seems to have benefited him. The result of his if proved condition was his  "Cologne Symphony.'* ���������  One of the prettiest, of Schumann's  sets of musical; pictures is that called  the "Carnival Scenes."

In every case one is  struck by the close connection between subject and music. No other  title could suit such music, no different music could portray such a title.  Schumann was also great in the  field of song, for his songs rank next  in quality to those of Schubert, the  prince of song makers. Schumann  never seemed to reach the emotional  depths which Schubert sounded, and  in affluence of melody and versatility  he no more equalled Schubert than he  did in the number of his productions.  But, nevertheless, he was greater than  Schubert in sheer scientific musicianship, his melodies were exquisitely  lovely and' he touched certain shades  of feeling with a very delicate hand.  Schumann is ah important figure in  musical history,-for he���������was the 'first  they want in homes of their own. Yet  it should be possible to hedge , the  restaurants about with regulations  which would prevent them from becoming a substitute for the open bar.  The bars in Vancouver could very well  be closed at the hours adopted by  Montreal and which have been in  vogue in Ontario for many years. If  the city license commissioners of Vancouver are anxious to adopt a really  practical temperance regulation here  is an opportunity for doing so: I am  convinced that such a regulation would  meet with the approval of many men  who are opposed on principle to prohibition.

Resolved, That Loyal Orange Lodge,  No. 1629, protests strongly against  the pretensions of the Church of  Rome, in the decree the Jemere now  being enforced In this Dominion because,  Firstly, Its aim is to set up and carry out that portion of a decree of. the  Council of Trent, which is in direct  conflict with the law of the land;.  Secondly, The decree is unscriptur-  al and is al8o a direct Incentive to a  breach of the marriage vow:  Thirdly, A decree which treats the  offspring of mixed marriages not celebrated before a Roman Catholic clergyman as illegitimate, deals most  cruelly and unjustly with the parents  of such children;  We, therefore, call upon the government to^ take such steps as will secure to those who have been married  in accordance with the law of the  land, freedom from interference from  clergymen or others of any denomination whatsoever, that may lead to a  violation of the marriage contract.   /  On Tuesday evening, June ^th, the  Agricultural Hall was taxed to its  capacity to hold' the large audience  which was present at the grand concert given by the 1st Central Park  Baden-Powell   Boy   Scouts.  The troup in their new uniforms and  equipment made a fine appearance,  and till those present who had assisted the committee in paying for them  realized that the money had been well  spent.  The boys gave a demonstration of  bridge building and first aid work, as  well as their usual drill, which was  highly appreciated by everyone present.  The scout master, Mr. Day, and the  assistant scout masters, Chapman and  Wright, were highly complemented on  the way the boys had been trained  and were promised every assistance  that they may require in the way of  finances. During the evening,.' the  president, Rev. W. T. Johnson, and  Mr. Chapman, the adjutant, thanked  those present for their attendance,  and all those who had assisted in the  program.
