VOLUME HI  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER, British,Columbia,. MAr 12. lhii.  No. 1  Fire Department  Is the City a Manufacturer's Agent?-<-Civic Fire  Hall Used by Company���������Civic Employee  Acts for Seagraves.  The Right Spirit     Dr. Ebenezer Robson  Last week we questioned certain 'actions of the  administration of the Fire Department, also-some  very indiscrete expenditures'by the" eity for touring cars, etc. We have been informed that the  article referred' to was not kindly received in  certain quarters. It is not our wish to hurt anyone's feelings, hut if. in criticising certain fictions  we are forced to make damaging statements about  individuals, that is not our fault, because "if they  were dear <of alLbUuue it 'would not hurt.'  ���������  We purpose making public a few more reasons  why we questioned the acceptance of the "Seagraves" tender.    Last week we intimated.that  the "aerial  ladder." which the .city purchased.  from the Seagraves Company for $17,000 was a  fa ii iu*e.   To substantiate that we wish to say that'  this aerial truck was absolutely.out.of commission ui No. 1 Fire- Hall from January 2, 1911 to .  MarHB 1. 1911. and from April 1 to April 28,1911.  Thus, out of the four months of this year we only -  had tli*������ use of that piece of apparatus for less  than one month.   This has been practicaly the case ���������  ever' ���������since  it  was-purchased. - It .-cost $1,7,000  in the first plaee;' it -has been out <tf commission"  about three-fourths of the time; it has cost the  time of experts and expensive repairs to get Wen  partial use but, of it.   In our opinion, this spells  FAILURE in capital letters.   The price paid is  about $t>,000 more than is warranted and we fail  to������ee why tine -Seagraves Company -should' have so  much toleration' aud consideration.   Again, Van-  \ couver employs an auto expert and'pays him a  handsome salary.   He is supposed to attend ex-"  clusively to the city's business, .but we find that .  I  on one occasion he went to Seattle for a week or  !  two for the purpose of doing repairs for the Sea-  I graves Company.    Again, the Seagraves' people  . ������old New Westmiuster some auto fire apparatus,  | it was at first refused by them, and again the Van-  i[ <eouver expert is sent over to adjust the machine,  'fthis time with another of the civie^ employees, a  fireman; they bring the truck to Vancouver to the  No. 2 Fire Hall, where it is kept for over a month  for the Seagraves Company and where all'the  ���������city's materials, such as oil, gasoline, .etc., ia. dsed,"  -while, it is being repaired^'^his lead* us to ask,  are we (Vancouver City) the authorized agent for  Seagraves ?   Or, is our high-priced auto expert  the agent?  Js No. 2 Fire HaU * sub-warehouse for ���������  the company ?   These are pertinent questions and -,'  citizens have a right to know.  Again, who compensates the auto expert for  these services at Seattle and New Westminster?  Surely Seagraves do not expect it for nothing.  As far as we are aware the city treasurer ha* received nothing on account for the services of our  expert. It is quite true that the Seagraves people  gave our expert a free trip Kast and a good time,  also he was presented with a handsome gold watch  as a testimonial for his faithful services, all of  which must be very gratifying to the expert, but  we scarcely understand how the city will benefit  from these conditions. To quote t he remark of  the man on the street: "Seagraves seems to have  had a cinch on the   Vancouver  fire apparatus?  why*  Bt Promotion.  We have another criticism of the adramistra-  Ition.   It is the method of drilling, promoting and  engaging the firemen.  We have on the brigade some of the very best  ftfnaterial that could be gathered together.   The  wn are of a very fine type but it is a grave question if in case of demand we could get the best use  Ffrora them.  We believe that the fire chief should have control of the men, but that sound principles shbuld  ie applied in dealing with them. This is not the  sase at present. For instance, men are engaged  as firemen who have only been in hte city a few  I days, while others who were born in the city and  who have had applications in for years are not  engaged, many of these latter are much superior  to those engaged. It would appear that football  3apabilities have more weight than fitness, as fire-  leri in some cases, in others "pull" turns the  triek.   This should not be the case.  Then, as regards promotion.   In-some cases men  [have been promoted who have only been on the  force for a year or so, and over the heads of men  lany years their senior.    This practice is very  liscouraging and must result in lack of confidence  |n the Chief by the men and much dissatisfaction.  As regards drill, we question if there has ever  |>een a single drill where firemen could properly  earn the use of the aerial ladders.   We do not  efer to raising the ladders/but in removing per-  ons from "a building and carrying them down the  adder.   The men are, .them, as fearless  is lions,'hut what good is that if they are not  amiliar with the duties required of th em in life  _aving.    The aerial truck is pretty much of a  failure,   but even   so, some   semblance   of drill  lould be practiced.  (Another matter is the frequent absence of both  !hief and Deputy Chief   from   the department  eadquarters.    For instance, not long since the  !hief was out of the city and the Deputy Chief  fas at Brockton Point at a football game, and the  lajor portion of No. 2 Fire Hall staff with him.  _f a fire had occurred there would have been no  pie present to command.   These may seem small  tiiugs to complain of, but it is just such details as  kese which make or mar an institution according  the way ihey are observed.  The "strap-hangers" on an interurban car recently refused to pay fare for the privilege of  standing. The conductor solicited the assistance  of a burly policeman, but this gentleman, after  viewing the case, decided not to interfere, and the  "strap-hangers" rode free.  It possibly is hot good "form for a newspaper to  encourage a belligerent attitude towards any public corporation, but the arrogance and manifest  injustice of this company in its treatment of ,the,  public is so constantly evidenced that we gladly  applaud the action of these citizens in thus refusing to longer suffer from the impudence of the  .company.,     u  . The B.C. Electric'Ry. Co. hold a most valuable  franchise from this city and "contiguous municipalities; they practically have an exclusive right  and use that right for one purpose���������dividends���������  " 'and care nothing for the public.  Its impertinence and arrogance is well illustrated'by its reftisal to give Hastings and D. L.  ��������� 301 residents equal light rates and city fare (301  ' has city fare), which attitude they assume in order to whip the city into extending their franchise  2d-years, as suggested b.v the'Mayor.        ,  . In New Westminster the company, for 20 years,  yran a 20-ihinute service vffah wretehpd.old cars;  , this year they improved the service by five min-  * utes and a new car. They have, however, refused  .to extend the car lines, evidently intending top&n-  ish New Westminster for daring to defeat one of  their men (Ke'ary) who -was Mayor, and electing  Lee. ' '., v        '���������    -  Burnaby last year gavs this company, a perpetual' and exclusive franchise, and. got in return  passes, for the Council, nothing more., The conn  pany is charging exhorbitant light rates-in that  municipality and also charging for construction.  r1Pbjii*i rt what'Binfcaby gets for-a perpetual fran-^  chise.  On tbat part of Lulu Island lying within  the city limits of New Westminster the company  promised power for industries, and sites were  sold on that understanding. A certain industry  wished to build there and asked for, power; the  Electric company politely told them, that if they  would ,pay $500 construction fees they could have  it. After a mild protest against this extortion, the  concern agreed, but aaked if ojher^'institntious  " came in *and got power off the tfa^/tines/sif* tfce  - Company would refund this charge.7,y Not aittchi^  said the B. p. Electric, ^Afliat accrue*}to nf."   /  This is the;.story froiiivYweek to^^feek ia"every  "district. The people ar<eTat their^jjkercy. and a*  we stated iri a former issue, when.'f: company becomes so unreasonable' as to be impervious to  reason then it is up to the people to. take neces-'  sary means to bring them to time, even if it .is  not according to exact legal procedure.  VANCOUVER'S CUMJBS.  Justice Gregory, in addressing the grand jury  last week", called attention to the alarming increase of crime in this city. His remarks were  sxxch as to warrant serious consideration by the  authorities. An attempt was made to bring the  matter up at tbe last meeting bf the City Council,  but Mayor Taylor ruled it out of. order. This is  a matter for regret, because our civie authorities  are usually too~ busy^to- pay much attention- to  moral matters, and when an occasion such as this  arises it is well to take it up.  The City Council do not administer the law, it'  is true. That is left to the Police Commission.  But it is a serious thing when a judge states that  "crime is increasing in an alarming degree." His  statement merits investigation and the responsibility cannot easily be shifted.  He Lftbbred Long and Triumphed  Gloriously.  Few in the.history of this Province of British  Columbia have been so active and useful for so  many years as Doctor Robson, who has been  called by his blessed Master to a well merited  reward.  Doctor Robson has for half a hundred years  been. closely associated with every kind of work  of social, moral and religious importance. Hp  lived/without-reproach, a pure, noble and eminently helpful life. ,-   "     .  Ilia labors were-given freely to the Indians.  Chinese, Japanese, miners, loggers, poor and rich,  all alike. He was .instant iu season and out of,  season; always ready to answer to the-call of duty.  Antl in the line of duty he had a spirit attuned to  the'whisperings of his. Master, with such an even  balance that he saw and-felt tlie call, when many  another good- man had ^not even, suspected the  claims of service.,       . ...."���������  I.have known no- ministerM>f any church-more  devoted to the help of all classesat all times than  our beloved and- much-honored Doctor Robson.  ,Not only was he wonderfully adapted for the  work of a missioner-'to the Indians and Orientals,  but-he had all the qualifications to deal most effectively with the best elasses of our learned and  . business people. ������������������    ...,,*  He was an evangelist, a preacher, a true minister, a fellow-servant, an educator,' a thorough .  \ business* ecclesiast* a patriot of the noblest type,  a toell-balanced temperance worker, a   splendid  friend,' a -model and affectionate husband, and a  "strong cosmopolitan "citizen. ' In/fact, he'Vas. in  /a/word, a "good man."   Wfe delight to join the  '-Ifirgfr hosts of friends, and admirers of- the "reverend-doctor to do, him honor-, His loved * ones- of- ���������  the family circle will miss him most, but they have  the comfort and joy arising from knowing that  the loving husband and father has gone ahead to  -mingle with others who have preceded him, and  there he will await the coming of those who, for  ai while longer, are tarrying behind in the service  of the Master, who loved and honored our departed and glorified brother.  [Because of his eminent intellectual power, abil-  . ity- and culture,.,the Rev. ^benezer Robson was  "honored by; the degree of doctor-of divinity.   All  ��������� wS&r-hara kndwn him intimately, appreciate - this  mark of merited esteem-,/for the, doctor, while being one of the busiest of men all the time, was a  very hard and elose student.   Though a preacher  of the solid, old-fashioned, safe, orthodox type,  he was well posted on all the higher criticisms of  the day, whether these criticisms emanated from  the clergy or from those known as public teachers m high or low places.  But the doctor was in this, as in all things else,  soundly balanced and equipoised. His mental and  spiritual balance was of the highest and most  practical order. Hence he was always a safe and  acceptable man to go to for advice and comfort.  That which made him pre-eminent as a pulpiteer,  an able evangelist, and a success over so long a  period, was the primary fact which he understood,  accepted, enjoyed and preached, viz.: the new  life, ge ww "bom again," to-use the sound  primary enunciation of Jesus the Master. To the  doctor the "new birth" was the foundation of all  "true~~life7 in a^ spiritual "and every-day~ working  sense. Hence his was a daily joy and triumphant  peaee, as well as a triumphant death.  E. ODLUM,  May 9th, 1911. 1710 Grant St.  METHODIST CONfEWSNCJ.  SftOOND NARROWS  BRIDGE.  'The press reports state that an agreement bars  been arranged at Ottawa between the Great  Northern Railway and certain municipal authorities for the joint construction of the Second Narrows bridge.  We are unable to learn any details of that  agreement, but would point out this fact, that  Vancouver citizens voted $200,000 towards a  municipally-owned bridge and not to a joint  affair.  We cannot allow any railway company to eou-  trol the approaches or to have any traffic advantage; We. as a city, can only support a publicly-  owned bridge.  At the Sixth Avenue Methodist church the annual conference is meeting during this week and  next. 7  There will be some very interesting persons  present, chief among them being Dr. Chown. the  general superintendent for Canada; Rev. Geo.  Jackson, Toronto; Dr. Graham, general secretary  of education for Canada; Rev. T. Albert Moore,  and others. Interesting addresses will be delivered by the foregoing during the conference.  Rev. R. Newton Powell, the president of the  conference, will preside. It is expected that many;  important questions will be discussed, such as'the  educational, policy of the Methodist church for  British Columbia and the famous Ne Temere  decree of Pius the X.  A. fuller report of proceedings will be published  in our next week's issue.  RECIPROCITY.  NORTH VANCOUVER TROUBLES.  The longer action re the reciprocity agreement  is deferred the more information we are getting  as to the intentions of our cousins ito the south.  Champ Clark caused quite a stir by saying, "It  was the ultimate intention to consummate annexation with Canada." Then there was a general  repudiation on the part of Washington authorities of these sentiments.  Now, however, President Taft makes a statement which expresses the same idea, only not in  quite the same blunt way that Champ Clark has.  The President said that "We should not have a  Chinese wall along the Canadian frontier."  Another development on these lines is the evident intention of Sir Wilfred Laurier and his followers to extend Canadian independence even at  the cost of Imperial ties. This attitude is significant and should be carefully weighed tfy the  citizens.  North Vancoxiver is having its own troubles  regarding the rights of the^city vs. the B. C. Electric Ry. Co. to Riee Lake. The cause of the  trouble is a certain order-in-couucil of the Pro-?  vincial Government.  Without discussing the merits of the case we  wish to say that in our opinion the Provincial  Government are in danger of carrying the "order-  in-council" practice to an extreme. We are getting altogether too many of these orders of late.  It is not good precedent.  The local Legislature have to their credit much  good legislation, but there is one outstanding  weakness, which is this tendency to arrogate to  the. executive council too much discretionary  power. We are too democratic to tolerate this  system, and it would be wise for our much-  esteemed Provincial Government to curb somewhat this unwise policy.  "Ne Temere"  The attempt on the part of the Roman hierarchy  to enforce this decreee in Canada has resulted in  a storm of protest from the press, from tbe public  and from various church denominations. Up to  the present it is also responsible for the wrecking  of numerous homes which were happy, pure and  sacred until invaded by the Jesuit. The deepest  insult, however, to the sense of British justice  was consummated when Judge Laurendean declared the marriage of Marie and Eugene Herbert  null and void because they had been married by  a Protestant clergyman. This- bold traviaty of  justice by a judge of the Canadian bench in response to the decrees of his church has thoroughly  aroused the nation to a sense of- the grave danger  of allowing a foreign religious potentate to dictate our national laws.  Already many resolutions have been passed call-'  ing upon provincial governments to protect the  sanctity of the marriage vows/ It is also expected  that this case will be fought out-to the bitter end.  We are of <the opinion that the appeal to the  provincial^ governments  is onl tauhtamount to-  placing obstacles in' the way- of ita 'enforcement.  What is required is that the Dominion Parliament  and the Imperial House be asked officially declare  the decree Ne Temere'absolutely null and void in ���������  British dominions, and that formal'public notice  be served on the Pope advising hira Of the action  and demanding its immediate withdrawal.   And * ..  -further, that all marriages solemnized according  rtoiaw shall be held sacred by all, arid any one who -  -interferes with any such union shallfrg declared  guilty of a criminal-act. .'This-may seem strong ,  ' but it is rational "and quite hi keeping with publie  sentiment in this regard. ������-'���������   "' -  - . -'  If ^ reputably91'tizen were,tQ-kil^a man for ia?v  vading the sanctity of his, home, he might be  guilty 6f murder' le^mUW,'hut7 rt'tfoSia:W ~'  hard to find a jury which  would  convict him.  Why, then, should we tolerate the pernicious in-v  terference of some bigoted emissary of the Pope's  who will break np a home, take the children from  their mother,-even s nursing babe, and forbid".  and even use violence to prevent her from' seeing  them again?     This   strikes right   to the very   / -  foundations of society.   Destroy the homeland! '  you make civilization an impossibility.

We miwfbe prepared1^ "make iwiy sacrifice to-  protect its privaey^ we must also guard the purity'  and innocence of the children.  In order to secure some definite expression of-  .public opinion on this question, we have drafted ~  and are circulating a petition to the Dominion and  Imperial parliaments asking them to take immediate action in this matter. ' A copy of this  petition will be found on another page, and any  reader who approves of its terms and the action  taken will assist b.v securing as many signatures  as he can and mailing same to this office as soon as  posible, where it will be properly arranged and  duly forwarded to its destination.  \M::k::  <-������V-^S;>!l  ���������S^i  .'���������?Atv$;;fejr.!$������i  HIP  ^HiU  KkWMM  A WOT ACTION.  The Vancouver public will do well to support  in every way possible the effort of the Board  ofTrade to widen thescope of the-enquiry into"  the loss of the Sechelt and Iroquois to cover the  marine laws governing the shipping on this coast.  It is charged by the Board of Trade that steamers plying from this port are frequently overloaded and that there is no adequate inspection  in this and other respects. It is claimed that  there are no existing regulations "except such as  would naturally exist in a logging camp." and  that this harbor is run in a most careless manner.  Vancouver is destined to be a great shipping  port and in self-protection we should provide  proper protection for both the travelling public  and the shipping interests.  'What is most urgently needed here is a harbor  commission, who would be in a position to see  that all reasonable regulations were properly observed. At present the shipping interests arc controlled largely by the C. P. R��������� and the public,  accept what they get as the best possible, much  the same as they accept the street car service,  thinking it hopeless to' attempt'to get more or  ���������better protection. The fleet of "the C P. R. is  not the offender, though, but the fact of their  control of the bulk of the shipping- lends itself  tft, abuses by some smaller'concerns.' A harbor  commission would be in touch with all classes aud  thus be able, to protect public interests.  AN APOLOGY.  (Grain Growers' Guide)  We have been informed  by a member of the  Saskatchewan   Legislative   Assembly   that   our  statement in" regard  to the increase  in  the ses-  chewah legislature was incorrect.   We stated that  sional indemnity-at the last session of the Saskat-  the Saskatchewan sessional indemnity was raised  from $1,000 to $1,100, whereas it was raised to  "$1,500.   We regret the error made and are glad  ���������Jx) make this correction.    We also apologize to  every ^member of the Saskatchewan legislature for  under-estimating the value which they place upou  their own services.    The Saskatchewan legislators evidently resent the imputation that when  the  provincial treasury was  opened  that they  could not grab as big a handful as could the members of the Manitoba legislature.   If this matter  becomes a rivalry between the two legislatures,  we tremble for the effect upon the treasuries. THE WESTERN CALL  jr.  si  m-  1  I  I ill  1  *  1  BIGBEN HARTE.  [These verses are based on a real occurrence that took place during  the bitter weather of the past v/inter.]  (Weekly Globe, Toronto.)  And will you go home tonight, Ben Harte?  And must you go home tonight?  The sun is down and the wind blows wild,  The white clouds lift where the drifts are piled,  And there isn't a shack in sight.  Ben pulled hi cap o'er his shaggy head  And buckled his sheepskin on;  As he opened the door a gust drove through  That shook the walls and the window, too,  And big Ben Harte was gone.

A coronation gift is being forwarded  to England from the women of St. Vincent. The idea originated with Lady  Saddler, wife of Sir J. Hayes Saddler,  governor of the Windward Islands, and  the Hon. Mrs. Murray, wife of the administrator of St. Vincent and the  humblest inhabitants of the Island  have availed themselves of ihe privilege of subscribing.  The gift, a parasol, is composed entirely of British Empire materials, and  Is made of finely embroidered muslin,  worked by several native ladies.  The muslin top, which Is without  seams, .transparent, with white embroidered shadow work on It, the pattern being taken from a well-made parasol of Japanese shape, aad Is  stretched, over pink silk, with pink  chiffon frills all around.the edge, and  lined inside with gathered chiffon/The  artistic shadow work, which is s  prominent feature of the parasol, is  peculiar to the West Indies.  The stick is of native (groo-groo)  wood, and the handle is a model of  the lovely West Indian- conch shell,  the inside of 'which is in shaded pink,  enamel work.  During March, according to the  Manitoba Free Press, pf Winnipeg,'  persons seeking farms and homes in  the Western Canadian prairie provinces, entering through Emerson, and  main1y_ departing from the "United  States, -numbered 3,200. They brought  with them 440 carloads of household  goods, stock and other effects, valued  at $1,500 each carload. The tota'  amount of cash taken Into Western  Canada by these people reached about  1750,000. In one instance a party of  115 people took across the line 32  carloadcafloads of stuff, valued at  f51,200, and besides were equipped  with $35,000 In cash. Another party of  tH bad $75,000 worth of live stodc,  goods and effects, and had cash to the  aggregate 6f $65,000. The graet majority, of these persons with their properties and cash went to Alberta and  Saskatchewan. This movement in one  of the earlier and more onclement  months of the season shows that the  emigration from the United States to  Canada has not been abated to the  degree that was proclaimed Jast year.  , Before ��������� Shop Window.

Chicago.���Eighty excited Italians���
men, women and children���wept and
prayed during a weird demonstration
in-the Federal building in Chicago
when one. of "their countrymen, Aldu-
dino Mazzone, twenty-one years old,
an actor in five cent theatres, was
sentenced to the Port Leavenworth
penitentiary as a "whiteSlaver." The
scene was worthy of being an incident
in the Camorra trial in Italy.
The maledictions and supplications
of the Italians were welded into one
hysterical noise that filled the Federal building and attracted a large
crowd to the scene.
Mazzone had been sentenced by
Judge Landis and his friends had been
compelled to remain in their seats
until he had been taken to the marshal's office and secured in �� . njp.ll.
Then they were allowed to leave the.
courtroom. '���'���:.''������ \/7-7'''Y
,:Rushing Into the corridor,.';..; they
raced-around the rotunda, looking for
JWazzone. Then, women tell on their
knees and crossed themselves .and
piiayed. ' Men shouted and cursed.
Mazzone V father ran round and round
the halls, every little' ways falling to
the floor. Several aged women,.carry.,
ing. grandchildren in their arms,
kneeled before Rocco DeStefano,
counsel for Mazzone, and begged him
screamed when he tried, to ' explain
to intercede .with Judge Landis. They
that nothing could be done.    -
Mazzone was accused of taking Dorothy- Schmidt, fifteen years old, 2057
Ogden avenue, to Muscatine, Iowa,
and there deserting her. He is married and is the father of a six-months-
old baby.
Judge Landis sentenced him to ten
years in the penitentiary, and* in announcing his decision condemned the
five cent theatres as demoralizing to
young girls.
"The. worst that has been written
about these theatres has but touched
the fringe of tbe real'facts," he said.
"This young girl frequently visited the
five cent theatres, and this man, whom
she met in a theatre at Clark and
Madison streets, made ber believe he
was taking ber to Muscatine to place
her on the stage. If be had done that
sort of thing back in bis home country
there would have been no court trial
He would have been handled in an
other way.
"As far as this court is concerned,
the law will have such application as
to make fifteen-year-old girls the most
dangerous, thing' in the country for
grown men to handle."
It is well over a years now since
Johnny' Wods, an expert second storey
man and false key burglar, stepped out
to freedom and announced that all vvas
not as it should be behind tlie walls
of St7 Vincent de Paul penitentiary
where he had been confined for the
five years previous for robbing the
home of ex-Mayor Ekers whilst His
Worship and family were abroad. John
is a smoot, well educated young Eng
lishman and he tells a good story. The
newspapers took him up and he became -famous in a night. Briefly he
charged that cocaine, rum, dope of any
kind and pipes to smoke it with, dainties, tobacco, even knives and razors,
were bartered and exchanged within
the walls of the "pen'1 as freely as
they would be out3ide. Coin of the
realm was the standard of trade, although, if short, an ordinary plug of
tobacco, cut into ten slices, stood for
fifty cents. Prom outside appearances
Johnny's tales did not ruffle one whit
the equanimity of the prison offic'als,
the inspectors nor the Department of
Justice, but it has been learned since
that/almost as soon as he had spoken,
a cearching investigation was' ordered through the Dominion police. Now
it turns out, matters are even worse
than Johnny pictured them. One guard
had the audacity to enter into partnership with a convict to run a barroom.
The guard smuggled in the flre water
by the "undergrodnd route" and tbe
prisoner peddled it, his place of business being a well concealed cave in
the* huge coal pile standing in a corner of the walled yard. A hospital orderly sold cocaine and morphine from
the hospital stores. A cook, when
discharged after his time was up, walked out with seven hundred dollars in
his pocket, although he had not a cent
when he was sentenced, all of it made
by soiling dainties and extra rations
to the wealthier Inmates. Several
guards have already been suspended
and a general snakeup and reorganization is being brought aboiit behind
those high, grey walls.

to this city, Mrs. Prances Held, of
Danbury, Conn., inadvertently threw a
pair of stockings out of the window
ot a fast Santa Fe train a few miles
west of Albuquerque. Soon afterward
she discovered that she had left a
roll of f 1,500 in bills in the toe of one
bf the stockings, and she appealed to
Conductor Milo Thompson for help to
recover it. At the next station Thompson wired back to the agent " at
Albuquerque to make a search, which
was done, and the stockings and
money were found. This Information
was wired to Winslow, Arizona, and
when Mrs. Held's train arrived there
the company's representative handed
her the cash. The stockings, it is
stated, are now on the way by mail,
because they could not be forwarded
by wire.
Mrs. Held gratefully wrote a letter
to the assistant passenger traffic manager, thanking the company, and asking that full credit be given Conductor
Thompson. He was given a credit
mark and the letter went into the
company's archives.

every description. Both black and colored velvet ribbons are seen. In tbe
wider sizes. Fancy floral velvet ribbons are, also popular.
One or tae most important problems
which confronts the agriculturalist;
and more particularly the dairymen',
of British Columbia, is the eradication
of bovine tuberculosis, -he serious
injury which this insidious disease
is working on the dairy industry in
general is not sufficiently realized. It
is a disease which gains entrance to
the herd often without the knowledge
of the owner and it may exist in one
or more cows of the herd for some
considerable time and also it may
spread rapidly without any apparent
outward" sign. It is a disease which
saps the vitality of the cow and after
it has advanced sufficiently affects" the
quantity of milk given, as well as the
breeding qualities of its victim. It may
be transmitted from one cow to another, which fact emphasizes tne importance of its eradication. Also It
may be transmitted from the cow to
the hog, and ln fact this .a the principal source of the infection among
our herds of swine.
British Columbia has probably not
had so much of the disease as in other
parts where the dairy industry has
been highly developed, such as in
some of the Eastern States; however,
we have enough to give ns sufficient
cause to take every precaution for its
eradication. While there ls yet little
of it we should see to it that it is entirely eradicated in order that our
dairymen may be in a position to
breed healthy herds and produce
wholesome milk.
While there are many features concerned ln the eradication of this disease and while various methods have
been adopted in other parts, it is to
be seen that ln British Columbia the
work has been progressing favorably.

One significant feature ii our work
is the co-operation on the part of the
dairymen. Many of our dairymen
are anxious to maintain herds free
from the disease and are laving their
herds officially tested, and premises
inspected, by the provincial veterinary
inspectors, of which there are four in
the province. On the other hand,
many, dairymen have little or no knowledge of the disease and do not realize
the importance of its eradication. This
department has been carrying on educational work throughout the province
in an endeavor to show our dairymen
the nature of the disease and why it
should be eradicated from our herds.
Inspection work has also ��>een undertaken for some time and any inspection which is done, to be official, must
be done by the provincial veterinary
inspectors. All dairies that are inspected are graded into four diiterent
grades���A, B, C and D���according to
the sanitation and equipment of the
The only way in which the presence of the disease can be accurately
determined is by the application of
the tuberculin test, which is done by
the department free of coBt, upon the
request of the dairymen. The staff of
veterinary inspectors has been increased recently because of the in*
creased work in connection with the
control of tne disease. Many applications for testing are coming in continually and the veterinary inspectors
endeavor to test as many 'cattle as
possible in each and every'district
throughout the province. The tuberculin which is used in testing, an'tf
other necessary appliances, are also
supplied by the department of agriculture. The only request which is made
of the dairymen is that he accommodate the veterinary inspector while bio"
herd is being tested.
If, when the test ls applied, any cattle are found to be diseased they are
quarantined and eventually slaughtered
in the presence of,a veterinary, inspector, and if
inspector's inspection is not At for
beef, compensation ia allowed by'the
government. The value of the cows
Is at the discretion of the inspector���
the maximum value being'$125 for pure
breeds and 175 for grades, and on the
inspector's valuation fifty per cent,
compensation Is allowed.
It ia possible that the general public
do not realise- the material assistance
the government is giving them by
compensating them for all slaughtered
animals which are affected with tbe
disease. This ls more than is being
done in any other part and the responsibility of completely eradicating the
disease largely lies with the dairymen.
While compensation ls being granted
it Is their opportunity to take advantage of government assistance and it
is also the dairyman's responsibility
to see that our breeds are entirely
free from the disease,
v Anyone wishing to have their herds
tested and their dairy premises inspected should apply to Dr. A. Knight,
chief veterinary inspector, Sardis, B.
C, under 'whose charge the work is
being carried on. It is to be hoped
that every dairyman will have his
herd tested and inspected regularly
bo that all milk which 1b being used
for human consumption may be as
wholesome as possible and that our
herds may be as free as possible from
thlB disease.

address on the subject, "Is Roman

Odium, M. A., ably performed "the
duties of chairman. In Introducing the
speaker, the chairman pointed but the
value of pitch meetings from an. educational standpoint, because a great
many Protestants were Ignorant ^ of
the history and belief of Roman
Catholicism." As a religious system!
there was no quarrel with the Chufhc
ot Rome; but the Church of. Rome
was more than a religious system.-* U
was the greatest political organization
under the sun, and the sooner Protestants realised this* fact:the better for
thempelvps and for- the country,-.. In-,
opening hla address, Mr. Simpson-'referred to an article that had appeared,
ln   a  local   Roman   Catholle  paper,
were unanswerable. As to his audience, they were men and women: who
did their own thinking on. religious
matters, and their intelligence was hot
insulted by having "ready-made'Y
opinions on religion handed down to
them with the mandate that they must
receive, them as infallible.. The
speaker pointed out the.various ways
that Romanism takes of deadening
Protestant opinion, and compared her
tatctics to that of a. military force
sapping and mining in preference to
making an open or. frontal attack-.. The
Protestants of Canada and of the Empire had been lulled into a false security; but recent events had shown,
them the necessity, of combining
against the greatest foe of civil and!
religious liberty that the world has
ever, seen. An evidence of the awakening .spirit' of Protestantism1 was seem
in the' strdng resolutions that were
being passed by the different Protest
tant organizations throughout the Dominion regarding the arrogant claims
of Rome in connection with the question of mixed marriages. Anr priest
or bishop who defies the law of tne-
land and attempts to Interfere between man and wife should be treated
as a common criminal, and be sent to-
jail without the option ot a fine. In
closing,, the speaker pointed out that
many'of the claims of Rome with regard 'to - the power of the Papacy were
based' upon documents that had been
proven to be forgeries, and in th*��
connection, the speaker advised his
hearers to read the second volume ot
"Hallams "Middle Ages." Next Sunday afternoon, at 3.30 p. m.,' Rev. Mr.
Simpton will speak on the subject, "I*

on what course your studies are to

Mourning customs are very elastic.
The depth of mourning does not indicate grief or the reverse, so much as
a fancied devotion to fashion.   If you /J
find  your mourning increasingly depressing, so that it casts a cloud on
the  family and  injures  your health,,
modify it for the present and lay it-

For example, a  mechanic, whose weekly wage is but a  little larger than his weekly expenditure, is, by paying $1.00 a week, purchasing annuities for his two boys,  aged live and seven, the annuities to  become payable at sixty. From that  time, _ as long as they live, a yearly  income of $547.76 and $497.78, respectively, will be paid them by the government. If they die before they rise  sixty, the money paid in will be refunded to their heirs, together with  three per cent, compound interest/So  tbat for a total of $2,.OS to be paid in,  an income combined of ������^,045.54, or  greater than the income Yo do derived  from an investment of $30,000 at five  per cent., would, be received.   The one  thing is feasible for a man even with  a very limited wage, while the other  would be quite imposisble for him.  Taking advantage of the low rate to  be obtained when the children are  young la what parents aim at���������the  children would carry the payments  themselves as soon as they are able.  What a payment of 25,cents or 50 <  cents a, week would purchase at any  age may be ascertained upon application-to S. T.

A rack like the sketch may be made  from three upright pieces of window  stop, with crosspleces at the top and  bottom. The rack should be large  enough to set over a lamp and support  tbe flange of a basin, which just clears  the top of the lamp chimney.

Our favorite way of cooking lobster  is as follows: _ Slice a smallonion into  a hot frying pan in which a tablespoonful of butter has been melted.  When the onion browns, turn in tbe  lobster, which has ' been previously  boiled and cut into small pieces, add  salt and pepper and a tablespoonful  ot vinegar, and cook until brown. This  makes a very delicious summer dish.  To Keep Salt Dry.  To prevent salt in saltcellars from  becoming damp and lumpy, when filling them put in; ten to twelve pieces  of rice. Tills will not come through  the holes in the cover of the saltcellars, but will break the lumps of  salt and gather the moisture; thus the  salt is always dry and fine.

OWEN  TELEPHONE  447  GRACE CHURCH ANNIVERSARY  AND ANNUAL MEETING.  The sermons and addresses of the  Revs. Jno. Robson and R. E. Mcln-  trye last .Sunday in connection with  the.second anniversary! of Grace  Church and Sunday School were greatly appreciated by large audiences.  Tuesday night the annual meeting  of7 the Congregation was held. First  a banquet?, then the reports and recommendations from the various departments "with some good music, and  a most uplifting and helpful address  by the Rev. T. A. Moore, D.D., secretary of the Methodist department of  Social and Moral Reform. Dr. Moore  made a very gratifying reference to  the fraternity, cheery optimism, and  spirituality of the Church.  THE IMMORTAL HANDEL.  Mount Pleasant, Methodist  Church  was again to the fore on Wednesday  evening, May 3, with the third of Its  pleasurable "evenings" with the great  masters.   The church is truly becoming a Mecca for cultured and' music-  loving citizens, what.with the painstaking work of the choir and the no  less .admirable   preparation   of   the  soloists,, not tip. speak, of the trouble  Dr. Edward Harper goes to in making  these events interesting, uplifting and  educational/    Excerpts     from   "The  Messiah" Occupied a large - portion. of  the time, and we do not remember .to  have   heard   better   renditions   anywhere in this Terminal City.. Prominent city musicians were seen in   the  auditorium, and the lively Interest and  manifest pleasure written   on   every,  face should encourage the. promotion  of further "evenings"   next   session.  Someone present had the   idea   that  if ten times  the number qf singers  (and there are surely more than that  in- Vancouver) would   only   combine  under such direction we should have a  body of vocalists that - could,   attack  Works   the   performance   of   which  add lustre to-the city's artistic fame.  Certainly there seems, (except the in-,  evltable "cash required") that should  stand in the way of such an admirable  project.   In passing, we might recommend 'the loving consideration of the  thing to some over-surplussed    real  estate millionaire ln the city's ranks,  or-to some dozen or more ot them.   It  behooves Vancouver not to be behind  Toronto anyhow.'    Dr.   Harper ' was  again very happy in his remarks and  in the choice ot items which   were  thoroughly appreciated  and  enjoyed.  He also lent ���������   fresh   interest,   tor  which he was rapturously encored, by  the performance of some of the celebrated "Water Music" as shown in  programme below.
