No. 48  SIR EDWARD TENNANT    A KNOTTY QUESTION    IS JAPAN TO CONTROL     SEWERAGE SYSTEM  Sir Edward Tennant is a typical Scottish gentleman. He is a thoughtful and cultured observer. He has little to say but there is not much  which escapes his keen eyes and ready understanding, lie watches and listens and thinks for  himself. ' ^  His eloquent address, delivered before the  Canadian Club on Wednesday last, was a splendid example <of how'thoroughly he had grasped  ^ conditions in this Province in th e brief time he  has been. here. It was Mecidedly refreshing to  hear him tell us of our weaknesses and warn us  of the dangers of our present course of action.  It was very pointed, but given in such a kind and  fraternal spirit that none could take offence. The  deep and thoughtful attention with which his  address was received was indicative of the .strong  impression which was made on the minds of those  present. "Y  tL :    *  , .    He frankly stated that, in his opinion, real  estate values were too high and intimated that  we were frightening investors away because of  this inflation of values.   He also laid the laok of t  industries, to this-'same cause and urged that we '  bend our efforts to induce good industrial concerns to locate here. ,.He told lis" we \yere inclined  to be reckless because of the remarkable growth,  that he regretted that' in building this new city t  we had hitherto failed to jnake sufficient provision for air space around our buildings.  Many other points were made^ jyhich should be  remembered by Vancouverites.. Bis visit will, we  \ hope, result in the acceptance p% Some of his sug-  '   gestions and in improved conditions in our city.   -  The License Commissioners are being called  upon to deal with the most perplexing problem  .which it has been their duty to face ior many  years past. We refer to the proper control of  the "wine cafe."  Sohie months ago we sounded a note of warning regarding this innovation into the life of this  city, pointing to the grave danger in allowing  these places too much latitude.  Before entering into a discussion of the subject permit-us to say, that in our opinion the  Commissioners are striving to deal with the matter in the best interests of the public". They are,  we believe, perfectly sincere in their efforts and  honest in their motives, at the same time we feel  certain that if they follow the suggestions of extending the hours again to midnight that a serious mistake will have been made "and that the  .commissioners will be /guilty of a grave error in  judgement.   - '  The .problem, of the "Wine Cafe," is a new  one in'Vancouver   and   consequently   no   onev'  .should too hastily condemn the, actions of the  Sir Edward Tennant, in a most'thoughtful and  eloquent address before" the Canadian Club, stated  that in his opinion we, on the Pacific Coast/were  holding a most important position in relation to  the empire, because of the possibility of war between America and Japan. Sir Edward pointed  out the fact that neither Japan nor Germany had  ever acknowledged the Monroe Doctrine, and, in  fact, evidences pointed to an early dispute of the  rights of America to asert such a doctrine.  Sir Edward is a cool, thoughtful man. well  versed in international affairs.   He is a close observer and is very widely travelled, so.we can  attach great importance to his utterances on such  matters.  His view of the aggression of Japan is borne  out by the fact t bat there are located in Cali-  ��������� fornia,   Oregon   and   Washington,   over   60,000  trained Japanese soldiers under t lie' guise of  laborers.. Then, in the Hawaiian Islands is an-  ,'olfcer.very storng contingent.   Mexico has also a  'large number, as also have'the'Queen Charlotte  Islands and other British Columbia points.

Another source of continual* danger ������to any  [country which allows too much freedom is the  woman Hierarchy.   We do not refer to the Rodman Catholic Church as a religious denomination,  for we count among our friends many adherants  t>f that faith and deeply respect them. But we' re-  Jfer to those religious orders, such as the Jesuits,  [which, dominate to a large degree the political  side of this great organization.

All the districts affected  are ready and willing to participate in this huge undertaking and a committee of two from each district will be  appointed to carry out the scheme. Al^latt-JMbnday's  conference, it.was clearly evident that sound,' comnion-  sense Was to prevail in this matter rather than petty per*  sonal feelings. There was one or two weak attempts to  throw cold water on the proposals, but-the better judgment of the large majorhy prese&t soott'prevailed, with  the result that a sane resolution was passed setting forth  a general outline for immediate action,; ���������* ^  Mayor Taylor and Aid.. MacPherson kept insisting  upon the employment of an expert engineer before anything was done at all. They persisted in stating that  the scheme must be outlined by.aVexpert first In reply  to this contention, it was demonstrated that it was Jm-  perative that we first secure-Complete data're' the topography of the country, or ia other words, a survey.of  the whole district and a contour map," with detailed* field  notes.

Most of those who frequent these  places would give as their reason "the excellent  meal" and in many cases this would be true, especially of those who go before 8:3Q or 9.o'clock  in the evening^ but ninety per cent of those who  go after that hour are attracted by the alluring  music, the fashionable company, the wine, and  we fear, largely by the "atmosphere of abandon"  which characterize them later on in the evening.  The "Wine Cafe" is the common meeting ground*  of the smart respectable set and the fashionably  attired element of the under-world who creep  from their'" low immoral surroundings > into the  highly unmoral society of their more fortunate  fellows. Thejine of demarcation between social  respectibility and social degeneracy is very faint  _inl these places. __ 7_ ir   We can only describe the nightly scene in a  wine cafe as���������a company of merry pleasure-seekers who have abandoned themselves to the noble  occupation lof satiating themselves with the artificial exuberance which inevitably accompanies  champagne and mixed associations. This form  of indulgence lends itself to one certain result to  those who constantly seek it viz moral degeneracy, and to those who frequent them occasionally  ,the effect is moral apathy.  JThey are the curse of Continental Europe  and America and if encouraged here we shall suffer as a results There is no1 reason under the sun  why cafes cannot serve, choice meals without  this wine-bibbing custom as a part of the institution. It is not the liquor used at the meals which  is harmful, so much as that which is consumed  later on in the evening. -It is a rare sight to see  a bona fidi guest of a hotel drink themselves  drunken at dinner, but it is a common thing to  see young men and young women, and older as  well,'-intoxicated late in the renings at these ���������  cafes.. It is the carousal late in the levening whicii  does the most injury. We therefore assert,-most  emphatically, that every effort should be made  to discourage the practice^ of drinking late in the  evenings, this can most easily be done by closing  Up the licensed premises at a reasonably early  ��������� hour.7. At this point the objection will be made  that "yoii must serve liquor..with'meals to guests  at all hours." We are aware that this is the  cause of riiuch; confusion and abuse of privilege,  but would suggest that in" view of the difficulty  experienced in defining the word "guest^" that  this privileg:Y;be limited to reasonable hours. We  defy any. man to go to a hotel and find the diri-  ingYrbom open except at reasonable meal hours  arid no one" expects-it-to" be.-' The "Grill "is often  open late in the evening, but this is specially to  ponder to this drink craving custom which we  have been,;referring to, and not to serve late  ���������'meals.-'".at all. No hardship will be imposed oh  any man by limiting the "drink with meals" to  certain reasonable hours.-:-v  We sincerely hope that no retrogressive step  will >ft taken by the commissioners because of  the i Yilties which present themselves in dealing Avith this "���������question,-��������� but that a firm attitude  will be assumed in t^ie public interest and for the ,  sand thus make wise provisions for possible con  tingencies.

The location is a good one and easy of  - access. It will be necessary to fix, the roads up  by rocking them.* This can be done at a small  c\>st ,to the city. The site will cost $39,300, leaving about $25,000 for a building. It is stated the  price was high. This is true, but it should be  remembered that it was necessary to secure at  least 10 acres, which is not easy to get in one  block and this piece was the lowest offeied that  = was^suitable; Now-th7e ~site-rlras"t)een~otoairied-  no time should be lost in getting the buildiuj up.  The present hospital is now overcrowded, and  tents are being used for the patients, which makes  imperative a new building at an early date.  jteqipjioQiinr.  EMPIRE  e  .  SOUDAJtITT.  The reciprocity agitation, the Japanese activity in Central America, the interest Germany is  taking in Mexico, and numerous other international incidents is the cause of much renewed  interest in the question of empire solidarity.  Conspicuous among the in trances whicii have  been made recently is that of LordvCharIes Beres-  ford, when he urged the 'consummation of an alliance, offensive and defensive, between-the British empire ajnd the United States.'  From present appearances .Uncle Sam may soon  find himself in such a position that the presence of  the British fleet along tlie Pacific coast would be  a very welcome-sight to; him. Be that as,it may,  one thing is '.certain,' the time is coining when the  Anglo-Saxon nations will ..-be obliged to. stand together or else take a secondary place in inter-  nation aLaffairs. Such a thing would not be for  the universal good. No other nation or race will  maintain peace so equitably'as Britain has done.  For the best interests of humanity it is essential  that Anglo-Saxon supremacy be perpetuated, and  by an alliance with America we could go a long  way; towards this end-.  Reciprocity in the way suggested by Ottawa  is only a step towards dis integration of the empire. Free trade throughout the empire, with the  United States included, would be a step towards  greater consolidation of the Anglo-Saxon race and  also towards World-wide peace'and general disarmament.  public good. The throwing open of bars until  midnight will not lessen drunkenness. The quibbling over matters upon which men differ, will  jever solve the question or add dignity to the  mayoralty office, but only wise, firm and united efforts will successfully cope With such problems  as these.   ��������� i  vA"; few weeks;ago eleven meinbers of'.ithe; 3oar3>Y  of'Trade of thiscitypassed 7a resolutionfavoring7  reciprocity.

There is a strong undercurrent: of- opposition- to 7  this reciprociay agreement,   which  is beccuiimg 7  more intense day by day, and we contend tfiat;^  the only way to adequately test public opinion  would be for the Government to go tathe country on the question.  Those favoring the agreement should remember  that because "free trade" in England was a success, it is no reason to asert it will'be in Canada.  England to-day is suffering because of free trade,  not because the policy was wrong-'in past years,  ���������but because times have changed. When England  adopted free trade she was supreme in the manufacturing world and consumed large quantities-of  raw material and therefore could afford to open  her ports. But to-day Germany.-and'America are  almost equal to. her in'-manufacturing, and England will"be forced to make -new. fiscal, amin.ge-  ���������jnents-to meet new conditions. Canada forty  '.years,, ago'had no. home market, no manufacturing ���������  and an 'over-plus .of farm produce, and consequently required a market. Europc;was too far,  with the then existing mode of transportation,  -but to-day -with'.modern transportation facilities  and cold storage and a wel developed home mar- j  ket we can dispose of, all our farm produce. In  tl^e old days our market was worth little to  America, but to-day with its vast agricultural developments it is an extremely valuable market for  the American manufacturer.  There is no analogy between the circumstances  forty years ago, or even twenty years ago, and  those of to-day. In fact the situation is almost  reversed.  It is also well for the farmer to keep iri mind  that while he may now pay higher for his m<lehin-  ery than under" reciprocity (and this is a debatable point) he also gets more for his wheat now  than would be possible under reciprocity.  We are of the opinion that the majority of  Canadian farmers do riot want reciprocity, but are '  quite satisfied with our present fiscal policy, except that they would prefer a more extensive  preference tariff within the Empire.

Nearly every magazine, and many  newspapers and books, besides statesmen, politicians and young debaters,  are discussing what's wrong with the  world and how to mend It. It is a  wholesome quest, but it all comes to  this: Wrong is in the heart of man,  and when that wrong goes out everything will be righted. When the Sermon on the Mount is put into general  practice, most, if not all, of the complex problems of civilisation will be  jolved. The most earnest students of  social* conditions confuse two sorts of  misery, mixing up the physical evils of  want���������cold, hunger and dirt���������with the  far more deeply-seated Ills that ��������� lie  somewhere ln the moral nature of man.  OUR FIRST GREAT 8UFFRAGETTE.  A woman of rare mind and attainments even rarer in her day was Margaret Fuller, who may be called with  truth the first great woman advocate  of woman's rights in. this country.  Born in Cambridgeport, Massachusetts,  in 1810, she soon showed herself to be  a natural scholar, wrote Latin verse at  eight, read the Italian poets at ten,  and devoured voraciously the German  metaphysicians. Her book, "Woman  in the Ninteenth Century," was a  strong plea for social and political enfranchisement. . She *k������s lost in a  shipwreck off the south shore of Long  Island while* returning from Italy in  1850.  STATEMENTS UNDER OATH.  The bore is not necessarily a person of deep penetration.

It will he remembered that an announcement was made some months  ago of the apointment by the Minister  of Agriculture for Canada of two special commissioners to undertake a  careful investigation of the sheep industry In our own and in other countries where useful information and  sugestions could be obtained. Tbe decline in the interest in sheep raising  has been th e occasion j>t much careful study by many who have been  closely associated with /the business  of agriculture in both a public and  private way. The exportation of sheep  from the port of Montreal, which in  1894 numbered 139.780 head, and in  1895 210.617 head, has decreased until  in 1910 less than a thousand were exported from that city. It has been  noted also, ln a previous article, that  the exportation of sheep' from Western Ontario to Buffalo has practically  ceased. These exports for the fiscal  year ending March 31, 1907, had numbered 130,817 head, but have declined  until for the ten months ending January 31, 1911, the total aggregate  amounted to not more than 787 head.  Corresponding with this remarkable  decrease ln exports from the country,  there has been a gradual and substantial increase in the prices paid for both  mutton- and lamb at our leading markets during recent years. These prices  for the last two years, have compared  i quite   favorably   with those paid in  I Chicago and  in Buffalo. - Comparing  I even the priced realized'in 1909-and  ' 19ib, it has been found by a careful  {study.of the market'returns that the  j average price obtaining in the Eastern  ; markets during 1910 was practically  ' one cent per lb.' higher than that paid  In 1909. ''tn addition to these figures,  It should be stated that market-reports  at our'leading centres'during tbe last  few years'do not indicate any very1  appreciable' decrease in the aggregate  number of sheep and lambs handled, At  the various market points.   In 'several  Instance's, the numbers ��������� reported for  various years are noticeably close.,  -In this conection:the importation  of 'frozen, mutjton and lamb Iflto Western . Canada is a "feature associated  with durstud,y of the markets which  should not be overlooked. Considered  from any B,tanj}pplnJLJ&i8 laterYmove  ment is a reflection uponT the' progress  which sheep raising is making- In Can  ���������4a. "\ ( t ,  In drawing a conclusion from tbe  above statements, a few facts appear  to be quite self-evident. In tbe first  place, the numbers of sheep found in  Canada to-day represent an actual decrease' of over half' a million head as  compared with the census for the  years 1871 and 1881. Further, taking  into consideration the Increase in  population, the number of sheep in  proportion to the per capita of population will doubtless be found to mark a  distinct decrease .when this year's census is complete. In the second place,  in contrast to the above, tbe consumption of mutton and lamb in Canada is  evidently growing in favor. Our home  markets are_now able _to taike, ������are_ of  practically the complete output of  sheep from the farms of Canada. The  increased price which must now be  paid in the butcher shops and the continued local demand is a significant  and satisfying evidence of this- statement. The whole situation is anomalous, in view of the fact that increased  production has not yet atended increased consumption in the country.  The appointment by Hon. Mr. Fisher  of Messrs. Ritch and Dryden to investigate conditions in the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States  has been the logical result of a study  of the problem which has recently  compelled atention. It will be remembered that Mr. W. A. Dryden is the  son of the late Honorable John Dryden,  of Brooklin, former Minister of Agriculture for the Province of Ontario.  Mr. Dryden is a young man whc has  already achieved.* creditable reputation amongst the sheep raisers and  stock breders,. both of the East and  West. His intimate knowledge of  Canadian, conditions has peculiarly  fitted him to undertake the present investigation. Mr. W. T;- Ritch, the  second commissioner, has.had familiar  experience as a wool buyer in the leading wool markets of Great Britain and  as a representative of English cloth  manufacturers in Australia and, Canada. The Department has considered  itself fortunate in securing a wool expert who, while evidencing detailed  knowledge.'of'his business, has, at the  same time, shown a sympathetic interest in the encouragement and development of the sheep industry in Canada.'  The commisicners have completed a  three months5 visit to the United Kingdom and have already made a tentative report of their inestigation there.  Many valuable suggestions and -oh  useful information has been in; ��������� ��������� Yd  in this report, -hich will ultimately  be  published,    jince December last  The habits of reverence, gentleness,  courtesy, honesty, courage and' pa-  just returned from being in atendance ,t,enc*' 1,ke their, opposite*, are ab-  at a series of meetings in the Province sorbed by the chnd from those' wlth  of Quebec' A particularly gratifying'whom he Ia mo8t clo8ely associated,  interest, on the part of the farmers ,K ls in these attributes that an ounce  who have been interviewed, has been of example outweighs a ton of precept,  eevrywhere marked.

Full discussions, however,' of  local problems and a free expression of  opinion on the part of the farmers attending the meetings has been generally invited and the opportunities thus  afforded have hitherto met with a  gratifying response.

Lord Chesterfield said that a gentleman is never in-a hurry, and the Scrip,  tures teach that "he that believeth  that not" make haste."  The truest mork of power is repose.  The most gigantic forces in the uni-  z**Z 1 verse are silent. The sun lifts millions  -*g of tons of water from the seas daily,  besides supplying all other cai th-forces  yet how quietly it shines! Thunders,  volcanos and all boisterous things are  weak compared to it.  In a factory there is a furious rattle  among the spindles in the top story,  but little power, for you could stop a  shuttle with your finger; as you descend the noise decreases and the  force increases; until in the basement  you will find the huge Corliss engine,  moving like a whisper, yet with such  energy in its silent arm that It could  crush you like an eggshell.  ' AU noise is waste. If we could save  the nolae of the trolley car or the locomotive we would have that much  mor dynamic.  It behooves men, therefore, to cultivate repose of manner, simple and  modest apeech In gentle tones, for  their weight ln the world ia In inverse  ratio to the bluster.  The lamb is. the mildest of creature., yet tbe Apocalypse tells us that  in the. Day of Wrath men will call  upon the mountain to tall on them  and cover them from the wrath of the  Lamb.. ..Tbat la a picture of the awful  power-ofgentleness.

There will be three days upon which  'he Army will be called upon during  tne great state functions: First, for  the Coronation ceremonial; next, upon  the following day, for the royal entry  and progiees 'hrough London to St.  Paul's, the Mansion House, and via  London Bridge and south" of the  Thames to Westminster; and, thirdly,  upon a date a week later, for a.further  state visit to the metropolis.  The first-named occasions will not  call for the muster of more than 40,000  troops, but the subsequent events demand that about 56,000 men of all  ranks should be on duty.

After a comprehensive though brief  review of conditions at tbat period,  the Doctor called upon Miss Margaret  McQuillan, Miss Beatrice Thompson,  and Mr. Gilbert Hall to sing, as per  the items in the program as given below. Their selections were charmingly given and won hearty applause, Mr.  Hall's rendering of 'bis item being  toucbingly effective.' Then followed a  short history of the famous organ son-  ataty from which Mr. J. F. Johnstone  played two movements with great taste  and correctness; after which followed  some of the (one might say) familiar  history of Mendelssohn and his family,  which seemed especially acceptlble to  the_ audience,, and brought _on _in_ its  turn a consideration of the Choral  works of the great master. This was a  great moment in the evening, it being  the point at which the choir came in.  Firstly the unaccompanied vocal trio  ���������nicely sung, and then the beautiful  chorus. "He, watching over Israel,  slumbers not nor sleepB." We confess  to having thoroughly enjoyed this, as  In the following Item. "I waited for the  lx>rd."

People are very often head to say:  "I thought it my duty to do such a  thing." It too frequently happens that  what they thought it their duty to do  was some mischief which lay ten miles  out of their way. At a fair computation, fully one-half of the bad things  done, out of the ranks of the avowedly  vicious, are done under the impulse of  a sense of duty.

Do not destroy any net from old cur.  tains. Cut In squares of desired, size  and stitch together, and they will make  excellent washcloths.  Be careful never to use too, much  butter in cake.

One day I spied, all shining blue,  A book of ships at sea;  At first I only dared to peep  And hold it carefully;  But then I thought how I would like  A picture for my own,        l  And so I tore one quickly out  Before I laid It down.  Nurse took the picture from me, spite  Of all tbat I could do,  And said that I was naughty, though  I felt sure 'twasn't true.  But when I questioned with a smile.  She answered with a frown,  Until in Just that little while   *���������  The world seemed upside down.  tv  But then my own dear mother came  And spanked my little hand;-  It didn't hurt so, very much,  But made me understand.  And now I know just one thing more  A little girl can't do.  I'm sure that I'll remember;  v Wouldn't you?  ������������������������������������_-���������  A MAN  AND HIS 8HOE8.  How much a man Is like his shoes!  For Instance, both a-sole may Jose;  Both have been tanned; .both made  tight  By cobblers; both get left and right;  Both need a mate to be complete,,  And both are made to go on feet.  They'both need heeling, oft are sold,  And both, in time, will teem to mould.  With shoes the last is first; with men  The first shall be the last   And when  The shoes wear out, they're mended  hew;  When men wear out, they're men dead,  too.  They both are trod upon, and both  Will tread' on others nothing loatb.  Both have their ties and both Incline,  When polished, In the world to shine;  And both peg out.

TELEPHONE 447  WHY?  WHY?  "Ob! this Is a   cruel   world," she  groaned In anguish. ."Yes, sister," I  replied, "It is;  but there must be justice, sometime, somewhere.''' But that  was cold comfort for this poor woman  smarting under the wrongs and Injustices of life, and so powerless to help  herself.   And as she passed out into  the street with her burning sense of  wrong and tbe look of utter hopelessness'upon her face, and her whole .appearance of one haunted by a cruel  destiny, I 'sdt and thought deep and  long into the silent hours of the night.  Thought of the mass of suffering, struggling womanhood. ' As the vision of  misery, ignominy, humiliation, wrongs  and injustice passed in rapid panorama before my mental gaze, maddening waves of rebellious thought surged  through the brain, and - I .exclaimed,  -Oh!_jwhy, _why^tias���������woman_no__D_ei  liverer?   Is there such a thing as Freedom?   Is there such a thing as justice?  Or is it all mockery?   In a land of so-  called  freedom,  alas!   what  tyranny  reigns beneath, the: mask of society?  Tyranny, like a gnawing cancer eating  out the very vitals of woman's life, tn  the domestic, in the social and economic realms, borne with patient enduring fortitude, only once    and    anon,  when stung beyond endurance does, a  cry escape her lips.    Is there no redress for the'grievances of poor woman?   "Indeed!" I hear a certain objector say, "what grievances, pray, has  woman?    The conditions of life are  very   favorable  to  woman."    "Grievances!" I exclaim in disgust. ,. "Why,  they're-too many to enumerate.   Take  one  or  two  examples:     Man  enjoys  the eight-liour system, but woman must  toil, ten, eleven, twelve hours'.' Why?  Is she the stronger human machine?  Is this just in a Christian age?   Again,  she must toil those long, weary hours  for an unequal wage which means a  life-and-death   struggle    to  the   poor  widow  with  five hungry    mouths to  feed.   Others, girls and unmarried women, often do not receive a living wage  and so go to swell the Great Social  Evil.   Is it any wonder?   Think again  of the  thousands    of toiling    wives,  whose work is never done, yet whose  j reward "is-but the bare necessities of  life, ri' ny of whom would regard the  wages of a good Chinese cook as a  fortune.   Then, if throughsudden sickness she loses a day from her post,  her vacant place is immediately filled.  Is  this just? . Again, she  can  work  "like a horse"  in assisting her husband to build a nice    home, but he,  dying  intestate,  that home is  taken  from over her bead, and she is cast  homeless and penniless on a merciless  world.   Tell me, is this just?   Again,  she has no right of possession even to  own children.   It certainly is remarkable that she's    permitted    the  right of suffering to bring them into  fr.H'4''M''t''H''l''HHH,M''M^fr^ _*  I  t   f  * i  t  i t  ���������A. -  %  i  i  *  ?���������  T  5*  T  v  f  *  X  T  I       *  i    ���������  i    *  i    ���������  ������������������f *  A small cash payment of $125  will secure for you a splendid lotr  33 x 122 in a beautiful locality, fast  building up.
