 ARE YOU ON OUR L������ST?  NO! WHY ?  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  VOLUME II  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  ������T>   ^  ! 'some facts  1 worth knowing  VANCOUVER..British Columbia,   MCH.. 10,   1911.  *?  ���������������  (  SUBSCRIPTION $1 A YEAR  --     IN ADVANCE"-.,-'  No. 44  ANNEXATION AND THE B. C. ELECTRIC.  Mayor Taylor has repeatedly made certain statements regarding  the effect that the defeat of.the'annexation movement would have  upon a readjustment of our agreement with the B. C. Electric Ry.  Co. Many of these statements are misleading, in that they give to the  public the impression that negotiations with the Company had been  completed up to the point of annexation, and also that D. L. 301 and  Hastings Townsite "have been saddled with a perpetual franchise  by the Provincial Government." '      '  This journal will., not retract a single statement made on the  Government's action in refusing enabling legislation to' South. -Vancouver. There has no doubt been <a' serious mistake made by the ,  Victoria authoritiesY It is not however an error which would warrant  a wholesale denunciation .of the Government's policy, nor do we think  that it is sufficient reason to demand the resignation of local members.  The following is taken from tne editorial columns of The World,  March 6th. :v . ,  "The Mayor pointed out that the annexation of South Vancouver  was not the only question td'.be considered: District Lot 301 and  Hastings Townsite had,been' saddled, with a- perpetual franchise  granted to the B.'������: Electric,Company. This franchise had been  granted'by the Provincial Executive. By agreement between the B.  C. E. R. Company and -the,City f"had annexation gone through the  franchise of District Lot 301 and Hastings Townsite would have been  consolidated to twenty-three Yyears, 'and in return for this concession, the civic authorities would have lengthened the term of the  company's,franchise in the city to,fourteen years. From the point  of view of the municipalities, he said,.this was the chance of their  lives. His Worship pointed out that it was because of the perpetual  franchise which the Government^ without consideration, had given  to the company in- the outlying districts, that the City was required  to extend the term of its franchise in case of annexation."  First we would state that the B. 6. Electric have not a perpetual  franchise. Mayor Taylor knows\this, but has repeatedly made the  foregoing statement.- The facts are as follows:;When the B.- C.  Electric applied for a franchise in 301 and Hastings; the manager, Mr.  Glover, promised the, ratepayers that if they woulfj;nbt object* to his  application he would, only ask. for'a termuwhiclj would expiry coif*-;  currently with the City Franchise in itflSf. Whenthe Company made  the application at, Victor}* to Hon. Mr., Fulton, the then Commissioner of Lands jfcnd Wprtt������ they deliberately left out any mention  of the term. The AttbrneViQeneral wasnot there at the time and  did not see the agreement arfal^M^HFulton neglected or oyer-  I!* looked this very important point and the franchise was granted'with  ' no limit stated. The Company no doubt thought they had performed  a smart trick, but in this'case theyover:shot the mark, in,'that,it left  the- way open^lor^ertJov.ernntent, itrf.ijwerfla 'clause limiting 7the'  time, which was subsequently done at the request of a delegation of  the Districts affected and<the,Cityi / *Y   '���������:>'<" '    ^    ��������� *;  ��������� -������ ,'  Yin January or early in February, 1910,.' Mayor Taylor," Aid.  Stevens, Solicitor Macponald for the City, Messrs. Brown and Ash  K for D. L. 301, and Messrs. Woodsides, Kirkpatrick and others for  Y Hastings Townsite waited upon the Executive and asked that-the B.  ' C. Electric franchise be limited. Premier McBride, Attorney General  .Bowser and other members expressed surprise at the fact that it was  not in the agreement or franchise and explained that it was a pure  oversight by the Commissioner of Lands, and they forthwith ordered  that a limit-of twenty-one years be inserted.   The company was  ^represented by Mr. Bodwell, who put up a strong fight claiming that  such a change could not'\be made, but the Premier stated that "if  R necessary they would bring down a special bill to limit the term." t  Now His Worship knows this perfectly well, he'also knows that  ���������the Company are seeking to set aside the action of the Government  .and have refused to acknowledge the order of the Government.   It  'is also clear that it would materially assist the Company to create  the impression that they had a perpetual franchise in these districts  ���������in order to get from the_0itya better readjustment._But theJB. C.  [���������Electric are barking up the wrong tree. They made a mistake when  ^they left that clause.out of the original agreement, thus leaving the  rayopen for the Government to correct it and if they do not bow  ho the order of the Dept., then, as stated, the Government will bring  fin a "public act."  Thus it will be seen that this franchise is now limited to twenty-  me years and not perpetual, jmd therefore does not affect the  ie gotiations between the City and the Company one iota only, in  that it would be extended a year or so according to the terms of the  lew agreement suggested to the City by the Company but .which are  hot yet accepted.  The next point referred to in the above mentioned editorial is  f'The civil authorities would have lengthened the term of the Com-  Ipany's franchise in the city^to fourteen years."   This is a gross  terror, if intentional it is unpardonable, as it leads the public to  pieli  i-e that all the Company asked was au extention "to" fourteen  meat's, instead of an extention ," of "fourteen years, which is an  Altogether different thing,-as there are yet nine years to run in the  present city franchise. We are inclined to think that this is a direct  jdip on\the part of the writer of the editorial, in any case it should  )e corrected as it is very misleading.  ,.  The article further states that the reason the city was compelled  to extend the fraTichis."-" ������-'as because the "^Government had given to  fhe Company in the outlying districts a perpetual franchise." This  not so.   We have already shown that the Government did in P  Response to the request of the Mayor and others of the delegation,  fcmit the franchise of D. L. 301 and Hastings to twenty-one years, and  tat is all they had anything to do with, the municipalities "of Point  trey and South Vancouver gave the Company forty year franchises,  [ndthat was the reason we, as a city, opened negotiations with the  Company. During the conferences tlie question of 301 and Hastings  jad figured very little, only in a general way.  As far as Annexation relates to the agreement with the B.C.  lectric it had very little to do with the actual negotiations.  It is  me that it was with the hope of getting annexation that the eon-  &renees were held. The exact condition of the readjustment of, the  ^reement with the Company is at present almost-at a dead-lock.'  It  ,'true that if the. Mayor had had his way the agreement would have  [Un closed Up by now and practically on the Company's terms, plus  lime minor concessions, but the committee have asked for three  tauses which are at present urider advisement by the Company.  |wo clauses were submitted by Aid. Stevens.   1. "That all matters  dispute between the City and the Company; and all exigencies  lien may arise and not contained iri the agreement should be'sub-  litted to' arbitration,"  and    2. "That  the  percentages of' gross  Irnings which shall aceure to the city shall be: on the first $1,000,-  M)"00 6% from $1,000,000.00 to $1,500,000.00. 8%.' up to $2,000.-  )0.00' 10%. up to $3,000,000.00, 12%, over $3,000,000.00. 15%."  ie other clause was suggested-by Aid. Ramsay and was "that the  impany should not accept bounses from ratepayers to induce.con-  lction."   It will readily be seen that these clauses are absolutely  EVENTS FROM 1791 - mi  . IN SO FAR ASTrtEY BEAR ON  THE QUESTION OF SPECIAL PRIVILEGES.  (Continued  fromVlast, week)  - no other way is the price of aid so pernicious to the welfare of the people. It  is a simple statement of acknowledged facts that in all such negotiations, whenever a Governor, a leader of a party, of art ordinary politician, approached a  representative of the Qntfch of Rome, the. ecclesiastic has always exacted a,  benefit ior his church. The men of the world who came asking for the  Church's, favor had only ai .temporary purpose fo serve', and cared not for the  future so long as their'personal ends were met ��������� The advantages they craved  and obtained perished With' them. Not so .with the black robes with whom they  had dealings. 'The favors they got in rerun 'for those they bestowed were not  , for themselves, bull, for their Church; and were permanent. The ruler or the  politician had a momentary or,selfish purpose to servef the ecclesiastic looked  solely to the aggrandizement of the vast j^tem in whose hand he was a staff:  The early history of Canada exemplified jhit" as that of no other country,  and does so because it is a solitary insiaMeor'a large Catholic population  being ruled for fourscore years bya.ha^dlul of Protestants, and when'the  non-Catholics did come to outnumr>r .the" ���������������thdiics, the latter, from their coherence, continued to hold the balance' of power./ The records tell one story  ���������of the extremity of the State.being made the opportunity of the Church,  of how that Church- has\ grown in poW' aidprqrogiitivf. through ithe subserviency of .politicians vAo made alh*iices_ with her to promote their individual interests or those of their party."   b> the days of Murray and Carleton  . the Church of.

'Ihe Mayor and the Company suggested twenty-live  years^at first and the committee would not consider it at all. The  Company then came down to twenty-three years and the Mayor again  urged acceptance but "the question was left in abeyance until the  committee could ascertain what concessions the Company were  willing to give. Mr. Glover stated at < the-last meeting mat he did  not think that his company would grant the last mentioned clauses at  all, hence we repeat that these negotiations are at a dead-lock.  It is altogether unfortunate that this question of the B. C  Electric should have been brought into the discussion on annexation  in this-way.   On the-annexation question the people-have undoubt^  edly the best of the argument, but to accept such manifestly unfair and in many cases inaccurate contentions as are contained in the  .-afore mentioned editorial and as have been uttered from the public  .platform, it is time to call a halt.   Mayor Taylor has* received most  llattering support in the discussion on annexation, it has been the  ��������� spontaneous outburst from honest western hearts which desire to  express their wish in the strongest possible terms and we have  cheerfully concurred in support of the movement.   We object however to being wittingly a party to unfair misstatements ot the case  or to participate in a scramble for office by taking advantage of the  temporary unpopularity of a political party.  SIR WILFRED ON RECIPROCITY  We are told that the House at Ottawa was packed on the occas-  sion of Sir Wilfred's speech on the "Reciprocity Agreement;" He  is reported as saying that "the Reciprocity proposals had met with  the approval of the majority of Canadians." This is a pretty broad  statement and, with all possible allowance for Sir Wilfred's remarkable ability, we submit that he has no sound basis for such n statement. It may be true, but we would ivery much like to see it proven  by an .appeal to the people, which is the only fair wav to test the  public sentiment on any great question. We'also maintain that no  such change Lo the general policy of the government of the day  should be contemplated without such an appeal.  ^ He then goes on to say that he "is surprised that there should  be any opposition, to it." ��������� This is another sublime statement arid ������������������ is  worthy of the most careful analysis by competent political.economists, for we confess that we are unable to find in thi.s any adequate  explanation as to how Canada will benefit bv shipping the wheat of  the Northwest to Minneapolis, St. Paul, Duluth, Chicago, etc. Nor  does it explain why pulp-wood should be shipped to the States and  paper returned free. But of course we should remember that even  Sir Wilfred's most ardent supporters never charge him with knowing anything about figures, so we must pass it up.  He next; takes refuge behind the ghof-7 0f Sir John A. Mae-  Donald, claiming that he had favored reciprocity." So he did back  in 1854. But not after the introduction of the great "National  Policy." Then it should be remembered that what was a good move  for Canada prior to the N. P. time, is not necessarily good now. At  that time. Canada was practically composed of Ontario and Quebec  farms. She was surfeited'with farm produce and no'home, market  to consume it. -We( had no Northwest with its millions of bushels of  grain. "We had no great manufacturing centers, no-great cities, fe^  great railroad systems, but thanks to Sir John A's N. P. we have  them now. Sir Wilfred and.his party recognized this and have continued this policy pp to the present, but now in response to the a-7  tation of American farmers in the N���������+hwest. he is willing to let  down the bars to American commercial filibusters. ���������'  Sir Wilfred continues:  Continued on page A)  " Since the annexation question has become so prominent a feature  in local civic polities many references have been, made to-'the sanitary  conditions which obtain.in our city. ���������, *'        v?  -The most important factor in this regard is undoubtedly that^  "sewers."' ��������� Vancouver City is not *yell sewered.   We hav6 spirit  large sums and have not received as much relief as we'could reasonably expect. .The pressing demands .for sewers in' many, districts  must be'met by the authorities.   No small/'penny-wise and pound^  foolish" policy will ever do this, but a broad and com^rehinwve'  scheme; incorporating within its bounds the needs of the whole -  peninsula, must be devised without delay and at the same time1 immediate relief must be" given to many districts which!*'are now in a '  critical state.   To. accomplish this will require the beat efforts'of the  authorities.   '       '   , < -��������� - * f~  .  ,  Not only will the sewerage question make serious demands'on the  attention of the, council, but also the unsanitary condition of our  streets and lanes, here'again, it is the duty of tne authorities to act,  and*efforts are now being made to'increase* the efficiency of the '  scayengering department: 7     -'" ���������" *-'"-'   <"��������� '7.   ���������,  -Another grave duty, >:(and one which has been somewnat --  neglected in the past) of the health authorities is that relating to a< ���������  proper bupervision of-lodging houses, etc. - This is; undoubtedly a    ,  most difficult thing to do, owing to many legal safeguards which surrounds the private citizen according to the common law and which  ia often taken advantage of by-avaricious lahdloards in order to  ���������well their revenue. 7  .^ , In,regard to the.latter, we know of many cases which would  startle our readers were they fully acquainted with the horrible  conditions which obtain in certain rooming or lodging houses owned  by wealthy citizens who are prominent hi social and religious  circles. ��������� 1   .    ���������  On a recent tour of investigation'along, this line we ran across  several places totally unfit for decent habitation. On the lane  between Cordova and Hasting? streets and Carral and Abbot streets' '  is a rooming house known* as the "Chicago Rooming House," it-is  ran by a Mr. Bond. One room is par$^>f au old ware-house 34x22  feet, dull, dirty and damp, with.no less than twenty-six beds in it.  This room is only 10 feet high and at the foot of the stairs leading  to it, which by the way are constantly open, ig jhe toilet and sink  with one dirty rag of a towel for the tW������P.ty-six lodgers. The plaster  is rotting off the wails and patches of filthy paper hangs loose on all  sides.''To 1 occupy abed in these fearful surroundings men pay 20  cents per night. -   ������������������/'-.��������� \..    .  Another place is the Calgary Rooming House on Water street.  ���������kjMst yent the Health - authorities condemned this place, but for  some i������lnmw������-*ewdn.aie^6uiH?tl7decided't07.������Bowi^to'remaini on  condition^ tbat certain rotten and delapitated put-houses were-idet"  molished. These same out-houses, which last year was ihe home of',  rats and vermin are this year the domicile of those unfortunate mm --  who are unable to pay for decent quarters. In one of these shacks,  lying below tbe level of the damp and dirty yard into which ��������� it  opens, are housed seven men.   The beds are crowded in in such a.  manner as to.render it impossible for more than tiyo or1 three to/  disrobe at one time.   Beds are also placed in every conceivable-. ���������  corner, even in dark and illventilated passageways.   Many of the', -  rooms are mere boxstalls with their only ventilation a hole into the:  hallway.  The Gold House is another of these places. At the rear of this  place and immediately beneath where > men sleep, is an old shed  heaping with putrifying rubbish, the accumulation of years, the  stench of which is sickening. In one room, 10x20, nine men sleep  at 35 cents per head. In another room, 8x12, four men sleep, this  room is damp with mouldy walls. - It adjoins a urinal, the stench  of which is sickening.  The Health Authorities have demanded_the_destri etion of Uiis  place,but theowners", Messrs. Thomson Bfos~~are intending tn bnild  there and have asked.for a years grace, it is altogether likely IiOav-  ever that this place will be-condemned along with a large list of  others which will come before the council at its next meeting. There  are many others, but these are sufficient for this week to illustrate our  point. We propose exposing these abuses of the right of "personal  liberty" from time to time. If men will insist upon making revenue  from such sources they must bear the responsibility and also public  scrutiny. These disease breeding blots in our city must-go, it is *  up to the citizens to support the authorities in eradicating them. For.  our part men, wealthy or otherwise, who take advantage of the  penury of their fellows in order to make revenue out of such disgusting places as these will receive neither consideration or sympathy  from this journal, but a cold statement of facts.  The responsibility of the citizen is an important factor in keeping  our city clean and healthy, it is direct and indirect. Direct, in-so-far  as it affects our persons and our homes, keej ooth clean. Indirect,  as it related to supplying lodging for gain. No man has a right to  demand remuneration for supplying, a fellow citizen with an unsanitary and unhealthv domicile.  v;  ' 1  WHAT SHOULD BE DONE  ��������� Now that "indignation meetings" are over it is well lo study  the situation,'re-annexation, dispassionately and with a desire to  get to the core of the matter. r  In the first place, what are the most urgent needs of the community?   Sewers,, water and roads.   These can best be obtained by,  'the ,process of annexation, therefore our object should be to overcome the:-' diffieultiesiiin the way.   ��������� Y  To annex South Vancouver it will be necessary to secure a  favorable poll of the registered owners of over fifty per cent of the  assessed value of the property. This is a tremendous task, but with.  proper organization can be done. If one-half of the effort which  has been expanded in "indignation" is now directed towards obtaining this poll it can most certainly be done. If a modicum of the  enthusiasm exhibited during the past week or two is brought to  bear on.-ih'.$ effort we may expect to see'Greater Vancouver an'accomplished fact in thenear future/ It is necessary then to organize  this energvso that it 'may be judiciously expended in order to produce the desired result.  This, should be taken up at once and an immediate start made  on the voter's lists, in the mean time the required legal formalities  could be attended to, and in three months, at the latest, the work  of/annexation should be an 'accomplished ''fact.  Failing annexation the various districts comprising the peninsula should appoint a'sewerage commission whose duty should be to  lay out a sewerage scheme for the whole community. * The districts  referred to sh.Yild include Burnaby, South Vancouver. Point Grey  and the City. It woiuY he wise to secure also the assistance or co-operation of the Provincial Health authorities and also a coinpetant  (Continued on page 4)        ��������� t^U!������W  THE WESTERN CALL  ������OS������^  sjcs!!?S!ao3aiEr^r!i;.i!rar7^rw>.,-������3������  A&.

Being interrupted, as a happy  Jught I covered it with-a cupful of  ���������ululated sugar and let stand over  kht. By morning the fruit hnd,  Imed its own juice and, setting the j  itle on tho stove without adding a  tip of water, Met the rhubarb sim-  lr without stirring for five mimi'es.  len ready to serve each piect;  '}& preserved form, quite as. whole  when in the raw state, and sur  rounded by a rich juice of a delicate  pink color, pleasing alike to eye and  palate.

Fresh rhubaro cut into small pieces,  sprinkled with sugar and partially  dried in the oven on earthen plates,  then sun-dried, is excellent to cook  in the winter with milder llavored  dried fruits. A German neighbor makes  her rhubarb pies in the usualway, but  with no upper crust. To make ruhbarb  jelly without waste, drain the juice  from the cooked rhubarb���������measure and  use the same amount of sugar as you.  have of juicej and cook a little longer  than other jellies. The fruit that remains after the juice is drained off  may be canned for pies.

KEITH  Broadway and Westminster Road  PHONE 1637  J  A New Thought.  The new girl had been but three  weeks in the employ of an artistic  family, but her time had evidently not  been spent exclusively in studying the  domestic arts. As her mistress was  giving her instructions as to the  dinner she said: "Marie, don't forget  the potatoes."  "No, ma'am," was the reply; "will  you have 'em in their jackets or in  the nood?"  will not bear examination. In %very one of the four opportunities which the  French-Canadian* had to rise against Britain, it is obvious that their Church  was going to gain more by remaining'under British rule than in passing under  that of Robespierre, of Napoleon, or of the United States. Under such conditions, it was easy to pose as the friends of Britain, and to accept money and  legal concessions for supposed services.  The Rebellion of 1837 in Lower Canada was really a race struggle,  while in Upper Canada it was a struggle for constitutional government. In  Lower Canada the Assembly was French, the Council English. These two  bodies were continually al loggerheads, and there is no question that a great  deal of the trouble was caused by the Council resisting the efforts "of Papineau  and his compatriots to make a French Republic of the Lower Province.  Papineau said: "The people of. this country) are preparing themselves for a  future state of political existence, which I trust will he neither a monarchy  nor an aristocracy. I hope Providence has not in view for my country a  future so dark fl* that it should be the means of planting royalty in America,  near a country so grand as the United States. I hope for the future, America  will give Republics to Europe."  J Bishop Plessis encouraged and aided the movement headed by Papineau,  but his successor discovered, that in the interests of his Church, there would  have to be a change. There was, owing to the increase of population, a  need for the appointment of two more bishops. The Government refused  its sanction to create' dioceses. Then, in the proposed Union Bill, Bishop  Pa'net had found out that there were provisions for putting into force the  slumbering power of the Crown in. nominating the bishop, and presenting Cures  to parishes. Back of all this, he had information of a proposal to carry into  effect the confiscation of the seigniory of the Island of Montreal, and the  use- of the funds for Crown purposes. The bishop was alarmed. What  was the cause of la nation Canadienne compared with the interests of Rome?  The Church came first. The Governor was approached, the bishop jseeing  an .opportunity for making a bargain. If the Government would agree to  leave the Seigniory of Montreal in the hands of the Seminary of St. Sulpice,  if it would give its consent to the appointment of a bishop- for Montreal,  if it would give civil powers "to new canonical parishes, if it would drop the  clauses in the drafted Union Act; the influence of the priesthood would be  won over. An understanding between the bishop and the Governor was arrived at. The change of attitude of the priests was quickly perceived by  Papineau. They had encouraged him in the agitation so long as.it suited  them, and now they had made a bargain at his expense and- that of his associates. ~ He resented the betrayal "with all the ardor of his enthusiastic temperament' The bureaucrats, he now told his followers,-were not the only  class to be dealt with. When the English were got rid of, there were black,  gowns to be clipped, and there were tithes to be reduced.  The terms on which the Church of. Rome agreed with the British authorities to assist in defeating Papineau and his associates included recognition of  the division of the Province into two dioceses, Quebec and Montreal, with  Lartigue as bishop of Montreal; bestowing on the bishops.the power to create new parishes and re-arrange old ones;- and returning to the Sulpicians  the three seigniories tbat they owned before the Conquest. Thus was the  Church's treachery to Papineau rewarded.  Next week we will deal with-the Act of Union of 1841.  THE ACT OF UNION OF1841,  -The Act of. 1841, uniting Ontario-and Quebec, is spoken of as the .result of Lord Durham's advice.   The union effected by the Act was not such  a union as he recommended.   Durham 'wanted complete union,    'a merging '  of the people of-the two<provinces into-one; with one law and "one administration of law, no discrimination-to be,allowed on account of faith' or, origin,i But"  an effort to be made.^so far aslegislation could effect it, of assimilation by the'  destruction of all legal differences.. .TJhis was the kernel of his'plan/ It was,  ignored by the framers of the,Act, who provided for a restricted union jwith  a joint legislature.   It was a forced union, even on jhat basis, resented alike  by French and English.' The French, knowing its purpose was to keep them  nvcheck, naturally detested it;, the,English of Ontario did not like anj^lieri  people having a voice in ruling them.-  As a consequence, the Union of the  two provinces failed to- accomplish the purpose for which it was designee], and  was a disastrous failure.   The parliamentary history of Canada'between 1841  and' 1867 is, in essence, a narrative of how, step by step, Quebec obtained  dominance.    The''first notable advance'was in- 1849, when the Baldwin-  Lafontaine administration secured the repeal of the section in the Union Act  making English the sole official language.   This is the first time in the history  of Canada that we have French admitted as an official language, 85 years after  the Treaty of Paris was concluded.   So that there is-conclusive evidence that  the use of French as an official language, was obtained by legislation, and not  by treaty rights.   The supremacy of Quebec was not absolute, however, until  Sir John MacDonald and Carrier took office on the understanding that no bill  affecting Quebec should become law.unless'supported by a majority of the  members from that province.    Such a basis of action virtually dissolved the '  Union. -  In the session of 1841 and those that followed, the members from Ontario had an opportunity of vindicating the great principle upon which freedom  rests, by framing a system of government that would have given equal rights. ���������  Instead of doing so, they ware false to the principles which they professed,  -and for the sake of personal or party advantage, sold their principles to secure-  the votes of delegates who held their mandates from the bishops. In the  history of self-governing countries, there is nothing more disgraceful than the  course pursued by the members from Ontario from 1841 to 1867.  At the Conquest, the Church of Rome entered a condition of sufferance;  its next step was that of a power to be propitiated for the sake of the favors  bestowed. It next blossomed into supremacy. During the last seventeen  years of the union, the bishops got what they sought, and in Quebec their  Church was buttressed by statutes and enriched by donations by the votes of  the Ontario members. One member realized the extent of the evil, but failed  to perceive its cure. The remedy of George Brown, representation by population, was the old delusion in a new guise of overcoming the difficulty, that  arose from Quebec, by force of numbers instead of plucking the difficulty out  by the roots. Had Brown traced the wrongs he deplored to their source, he  would have applied himself to effecting in Quebec what he helped to do in  Ontario, namely, complete separation of church and state. Sandfield Mac-  Donald's remedy, double majority, was the device of a coward, who, instead  of facing a difficulty, evades it. His plan was t.hat the members of each  province were to decide bills affecting their respective provinces, and when  there was not a majority of the members concerned in favor of such a bill, it  was to be dropped, even if a majority of the united house was in its favor.  When a crucial case arose, MacDonald showed the cloven foot. The Roman  Catholic bishops pressed for Separate Schools in Ontario. . It was a bill  that concerned Ontario alone, and a majority of the Ontario members voted  against it. MacDonald refused to apply his own principle to the case, and  Separate Schools were forced on Ontario by the votes of the Quebec members.  Thus it was 86 years after the Treaty of Paris was concluded that the first  Separate School was established in Canada, and the evidence places the fact  beyond dispute that the special privileges enjoyed by the French race and the  Roman Catholic Church with regard to language and the schools were obtained by legislation and not by treaty rights.  In doing violence to their professed convictions by uniting in the purposes  of the Quebec majority, the Ontario members lowered their moral standard  and became self-seekers. Sir John MacDonald, though the most careless of  men about his own pecuniary advantage, knew how to win support by exercising the potent lever of self-interest. Cartier seconded him effectively by  using the Quebec votes as a bludgeon to defeat opposition. His shout, "Call  in the members," ended many a discussion. All went swimmingly until the  venality of some of the members turned the moral sense of Ontario against the  MacDohald-Cartier combination, and its candidates could not secure re-election. - Then there was a deadlock the end of the Union of 1841  had  come. There was no question as to the cause of the deadlock, it was admittedly the thrusting of the will of the Quebec hierarchy on Ontario. To  lake steps, that for the future, that hierarchy should have no hand in what  the legislature did, would have been the remedy of statesmen. But the party  politicians, to whom the solving of the difficulties fell, were intent alone in  getting the machinery of the state again in motion������������������the Conservatives to  enjoy a new lease of office; the Liberals, long shut out, were eager for a  coalition, that they might get their share of the honors and the patronage.  How the deadlock was;broken and the influence of the Roman Catholic  hierarchy continued will be dealt with in our next article on, "Confederation  and the British North America Act."  {To Be Continued.)

This is the  best opportunity we- wil have. We  have Kitsilano and .English Bay, which  ought to be made public bathing  grounds.

EDUCATION  AS   CHILD  TIO N  PROTfiC  The city���������especially the large American city���������is no child's world. No restraint is put upon its flaring publicity  In .the interests of childhood's innocence; hence education is "mostly a  matter of protection against an environment which is unfavorable to the  natural and healthy- growth of the  child." These are the words of Mr.  Perclval Chubb, principal of the Ethical Culture Society's high school department, delivered before, an assembly held td the Child's Welfare Exhibit, la New York. It is not to,be  wondered at that the heads of families become "commuters" as soon as  children appear, when we read that  tne great city is "an adult wdrld  which recks'little of the effects of its  ways upon the sensitiveness and Innocence of tbe young." As. reported, by  the New York papers he went on to  say:  "Deplorable as is the overstimulation which causes, as evidenced in-the  precocity and 'smartness' of a typical  child, the moral effects of this environment are still more serious.  "Tbe nervous rush and crush of it  all, tbe selfish push and greedy baste  which reach" their barbarous climax in  the subway, tbe immodest assertive-  ness of the advertising, are unwholesome and ruinous. There are no advertisements for children; the child is  everywhere nudged with the rest of breakfast table? The agitation against  the comic supplement for children is  making encouraging headway, hut has  notTyet amounted to-a-force-sufficient  to change the practise of the newspapers.

He disowns any  educational or philanthropical intention He meets those who have plend  cd with him for reform with the state  An  newspapers  and songs���������these things , open-air rink.   However, most of these  will happen."  The daily newspaper, thinks Mr:  Chubb, "ought to have no direct influence on the child under sixteen.'  Its "chronicle of scandal, sin, and  crime" ia plainly not written for his.  consumption. But he is not forgotten  on Sunday.   Says Mr. Chubb:  "It is when we come to that Ameri-'baths and parks;  Spokane had  can monster of misrule, the Sunday , fully equipped supervised parks   and sioners should be included on the board  newspaper, with its lurid comic sup-! was making provision for the purchase .of management. v  plement for the child's particular bene- of more.

Its so-called humor is the humor of  distortion,' akin to that provided for  the - parents' in those insane. cartoons  which serve up daily and nightly in  our journals the misshapen, apelike  creatures of a diseased imagination.  "It is strange that the forces of religion ln the church and the Sunday  School have' not, been active to repress this Sunday Invasion of vulgarity. Is a child who has feasted on this  coarse food in any state of mind to  [attend Sunday School or church? Or  is indulgence in the Sunday newspaper  habit, or, let us say, the comic supplement habit, .calculated to Induce tbe  right kind of, reaction after the services of theCSunday School, and - the  church? But what can we expect of  tbe child if the parents are indifferent  and even sets an example?

SIR WILFRID ON RECIPROCITY. (Con. from pp. i)  ."Wherever new'markets were, to be .found, the > government  would not hesitate to take advantage of them. In' cereals, fruits,  vegetables, in all farm products, Canada was unafraid of free competition-from any country in-the0 world. If now,i^ was to he admitted that Canada in these lines-could not openly compete^ with, the  United States, then it was ail over with the bt>.as|ed place of Canada  as the granary of the'Eiri������ireY" "  Who ever thought of "America as a ."

Or does  he wish us to understandthat because he is willing to allow the export of our raw materials, th'at we are in that sense to look upon  it as a "New Market!'*'' "  Then. "Canada is unafraid of free competition in farm produce,  fruits, etc." This is supposed td'put the quietus upon the claim,  of the Ontario and British Columbia fruit growers, "that the Northwest is their, natural market" -and proposes to turn it over tp the  Americans. It is also presumed-.that it will' silence the objection  raised against shipping-our wheafc-to America centers to be milled,.

We ask,did. Uncle Sam ever pay John Canuck  high prices for his-farm produce, prior tos$ie introduction of ttfe  Rational Policy? Pid the farmer ever before get the prices he is  getting now? ,; "������       " -,  In discussing the chief objections raised'to the agreement, Sir  Wilfrid maintained there was no danger of deflecting export trade  from present Canadian channels,,vsince the new bonding privilege  had been put in force, and only cheapness of respective trade routes  regulated mode of export."  This is a mere subterfuge and does not answer the objection  referred to at all. There is a modicum of truth in the statement  where it refers to "cheapness of respective trade rountes." But  Sir Wilfrid carefully avoids a discussion of the effect it will have  upon the "storage centers.'^ It is well known that Port Arthur,  Port William, Winnipeg, Brandon ar^d^niimerous other centers, collect the wheat and then route it to tlie European markets.    The  question of which railroad shallihandle it: is not vital, although we  would prefer a Canadian road, but the question of which city shall  collect and store it is of vital importance.. "Duluth or Port Arthur,"  "Minnie or Winnie," etc.   In this Canada is deeply interested, and  we should make careful investigations as to the possible result to  our cities in this regard, for as Sir John-A has put itv,iIa farm without a city is a poor national ������ssef.'���������"'-"Jim HiiradvSca'^  and has constructed numerous 'feeders; j running north- and south -  accordingly.'  Why?   To build up Canadian centers?   No.   But to-  build up American cities.  The fact is Sir Wilfrid has not met'the objections in any single  instance, but has simply negatived every statement. He says: - v  "The loyalty of the Dominion to'the mother country was too  well founded in the hearts and minds1 of^ the people to be affected  by the mere matter of selling more goods to a neighbor to the south.  There was no disloyalty in exports/:*4  We wish to say that the-foreigners from all parts of Europe  and from America are pouring' into .our' country by the hundred*  of thousands annually, these are loyal in a sense, but only in ^a business sense., They measure their loyalty :ahd, national interest in dollars and cents, and this trader arrangement will affect them. Those  who come /rom British stock will always 'be loyal and for these alone'  can Sir Wjifrid speak in the forgoing Ian guage, while the hordes  of, other.nationalities which ace coming? here will be influenced by  other arguments. >   . ^^.   x  There is no, excuse for theYBecipraeity Agreement except as a  sop for the American farmers of. the^H������rthwest* who object to the  Union Jack over the schools, who: refuse to allow their children jto -  sing "God Save the King" and-thed*Maple Leaf," but who celebrate the 4th instead of the 1st of July and sing Yankee Doodle.   - -  p. .i'  r. i    <>,.

The  Protest-      ������'     MISSION8 IN CHINA.  'School Board is to be commended'    Tronto.���������A striking   indictment   ot  Mr. Endicott in this city recently. Mr.  Endicott spent seventeen years in  China as a missionary.  > > Discussing the Chinese character, in  the address to which we refer, he said  that the Chinese were naturally the  most 'tolerant people on earth with regard to any form of religion except  Christianity. They had in times past  allowed the Buddhists to come in and  proselytize. They had welcomed the  Mohammedans and projected them.  Mr. Endicott himself had seen a colony of Hebrews in the interior of  China practising, unmolested, their  own form of religion. Moreover, when  Christianity was first introduced into  China it was received as cheerfully  as other forms of religion. The missionaries were accorded extraordinary  privileges. But the thing that turned  the Chinese against the Christian religion was the usurpation of civil power by the Jesuit Fathers/ The Jesuit  missionaries protected criminals upon  the ground that they were converts  to their religion. Their interference  with the civil magistrate incensed the  Chinese people to such a degree, that  every representative of a Christian  Church has for half a century or more  been hated and feared.  The periodical massacres of missionaries that have taken place throughout  the Chinese Empire are directly traceable to the same cause that has produced revolutions in France,, Italy,'  Portugal, and, in fact, almost every  papal country in th e world, The doctrine of infallibility and of temporal  "power leads inevitably to the1 subjection of all civil powers!.to;the Roman  pontiff. It is this craving forctpolitical  supremacy tnat will ultimately destroy  the remarkable edifice which has been  built up since the tenth century.���������'Sentinel."'       ���������    "V "        '\-     k i  RECIPRICOTY DI8CU38ION WAXES  '     WARM.  ���������M^^������-M^~:������H"J~H~:~X~X~H~X**X-~X*  ���������^^"H������������������������������������H^���������^���������^���������^~H���������^������������������H������������������^���������H���������  We carry a complete stock of  KODAKS,    I  BROWNIES,  EASTMANS N.

For one reason or another people In  'he east have an idea that the west Is,  ������)s a whole, very much in favor of  reciprocity, and it was with a feeling  of pride and no little astonishment that  manufacturers and others read the  sentiments expressed by Pat Burns,  the Calgary Cattle King, on the sub  ject. Mr. Burns, as is well known, j=  robably the biggest man in many ways  the west has produced. He is the  owner of thousands of heads of cattle  of lan?e pacing plants at Caleary  and V.TC'-iiver, and is an extensive  trader in she<?n..swine, poultry, "but'er.  pgps and kindred products. He has  heen called the Aimour of Canada, and  in. Western.

New manufacturies are spring-.  ing into life, and the older established  ones,   [while   having   been   busy   all  w inter, are more than ever busy now  that the days are growing longer and  the sun" stronger.  At this time of the  year it is customary for superintendents and general" managers of plants'  to make  exhaustive  reports to  theii  boards   of   directors   concerning   the  state of the business and the outlook  for the summer.   These as a rule are  considered   c'onfidertlal,  but  some   o'  them are given to the public, although  they_are^usually couched in such tech-_  nlcal language that It is hard for the  laymen to fully comprehend them. As  an exception to this your corespondent  happened on  a report made  by  Mr  Edward  Slade,  managing  director  of  the Black Lake Consolidated Asbestos  Company, a large concern in the Eastern Townships in which many Canadians are interested.  He ends with th^  significant words:  "I can safely state  that the property is now in a position  to  earn   al!  its  fixed  charges, and   a  substantial   surplus.

Tbe fear has ben expressed in many  well informed quarters that, if this  reciprocity ; agreetnent goes through  Canada will be-cut .off like an erring  son from England's bounty. English  money has been coming into the  country for investment in handbills  lately, much to the advantage of the  Dominion. Should the agreement pass  Englands will draw her purse'strings.  Mr. C.

If a woman has a reception-day and  has sent' cards to all her friends to  notify them of the fact, need she  receive chance callers on any other  day?>-I"- '������������������  No, provided that the maid is Instructed in advance to excuse her  nlistress when opening the door, that  the,caller may not feel that any discrimination has been made against her.  To reply to a visitor, "I'll see if Mrs.  A is at home." is not only an evidence  of Ignorance on the part of mistress  i and servant, but is also an injustice  to the visitor, whose time one has no  right to waste. Some persons think  that the formula ^Not at home" involves no more falsehood than the  word "regret" ln reply to an invitation. It may be so, but for a woman  to be seen at the window by the caller  receiving her message, "Not at home"  might be as embarrassing to explain  as though she had really intended to  deceive. "Mrs. A is very much engaged  and desires to be excused to any one  who might call" cannot offend, since it  implies that all comers are ito be  treated alike.  I An  Engagement Ring Not Indispensable  Is it accepted that if two people have  come to an understanding they are  engaged even' though no ring has been  given? and should not the ring be  given before any announcement of tbe  engagement is made?  < Tbe ring, Is merely the "outward  and visible sign" of an, engagement  and in no way affects the real fact.  It is customary tor a ring to be given  before the engagement is made public,  but there are, doubtless, many persons  who never receive any ring and tbe  compact is none the less sacred.

As it was heavily leaded, did not stand  in the correspondence department, and  had no openly avowed author, it must  be accredited to the editor of the  paper.  Here is the heading:  "HOW   THE   LONDON   TIMES   WAS  HOAXED"  "Tale of an Irish Mother Separated  From Her Offsprings."  "Some joker has been perpetrating a  hoax att the expense of the London  Times and two Irish Newspapers. In a  letter to the Times he gave details 'of  a cruel and heartless desertion of the  victim of a so-called unhallowed union  by the partner who should have remained faithful to her for life."'  The letter proceeded: "The" case  has received considerable notice in  the Belfast News Letter - and Northern Wig. The ' poor mother thinking  tnat at least she should have her  children to console her, who however  not only abandoned by her natural protector, but robbed of her offspring.  "Sir, this occurred close to Bangor,  within twelve mlleB ol Belfast, and I  am in a position to say that tbe foul  robbery of flesh and blood was ped-  petrated by a member of an Irish  secret society.- No terms were dictated,  because no terms /would have been accepted, * andt the unfortunate, creature  was deprived of that which by all  laws of nature was nearest and dearest to her.  . "But there is a bright side to the  picture. I can say that the mother is in  no state of destitution. She is being  at present amply provided for by a  wellknown elder of the Presbyterian  Church..  "The three hoaxed Journals have  now learned to their discomfiture that  'the foregoing pathetic story related to  a cat whose kittens had been taken  and drowned soon after their birth."  The above Is the production, a  monstrous production, which appeared  tn the Daily Province last week. While  1 so" state a fact, I do not for a moment suggest or suppose that the responsible editor or sub-editor had  knowledge of the horrible, heartless  and diabolical facts of the case.    .  The Province has been sadly hoaxed  by some creature whose identity ought  to be known to the public and who will  'be hunted' up and spotted by tbe  Province for the future, if the Proprie-  person.  I Bhall give the tacts of the case,  and in doing so, venture to assert tbat  the author of tbe above dastardly production lias so managed, as to keep  himself out of Bigot from the public,  and in all probability from the Province which was so merct'essly hoaxed.  Now for Has facts ot the case, put  ns concisely b������ possible. J,T������ or n*������ar  Belfast a Roman Catholic man married  a ProteBtant woman. They nave a  small family of two children, very  young, the babe being about Hour  months old. Husband and "Wife got  ilong harmoniously together and were  is well mated as two persons of  antagonistic creeds could he. In course  ->f time a Roman Catholic priest appeared on the scene, and told the  husband and wife that, they were not  -eaTTy -married, though tbey had been  <.^^^m^x������^~^h������*x^>������k~:������������H"X������*:"X������ ���������h������x������^:~:^h~h^x^~h~k������������h������x������������H'* ^������x^x^^^^^~x**^x-X"X~:~x*������������5^  t   k * "t  E.
