Array P|  '^[Vive  4&  rs������*fcij)  I    ���������  mmmmwfSM  SUBSCRIPTION $1 A YEAR  liN ADVANCE  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  VOLUME III  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER. British Columbia, JUNK 2, 1911.  No. 4  { Threatened Strike  One of the most significant steps ever taken by  'the labor men in Canada   is that   of the local  Trades and Labor Council in calling' a general  ^strike of all union men in* this city.  ft   It is useless to waste time condemning those  I responsible for calling the strike and it is equally  futile for those who sympathise wi,th them to feed  the smoldering tires of anger in the breast of the  .aggravated unionist.   It behooves every thought-  jful citizen to carefully weigh the causes whieh  f have led up to the action now taken and further  contemplated by the labor men bf this eity, and if  I possible, to seek their solution.  A strike is a dead lost to everyone concerned  ���������? except the paid organizers for both the employer  \and the workers.   These paid officials never suffer.  I,' They frequently succeed, in both cases, in causing  J a great deal of useless loss and suffering, and in  driving  the  conflicting elements  further apart  than ever.    We seldom hear of a  satisfactory  solution of au industrial    dispute,   through the  \ medium of the professional organizers of the two  parties, almost invariably it comes through inde-  1 pendent parties.   On the other hand the presence  of the official representative of the manufacturers  ^ or of a labor organization at a time when relations  rare strained between employer and men, is frc-  Lquently the signal for strife.    It is well for the  .publie to keep this fact in mind and not lay the  I sins of professional agitators upon the shoulders  lof the honest toiler.  |i    We are ready to admit that i,t may be an advantage to set aside men to organize, but we believe  that at that point their work and influence should  cease.    Let the workers appoint,  from among  I themselves, committees to discuss   their   affairs  (with the employers, and the same thing applies  ������to the employers, they are often wrongly advised  by professional heelers as to their relation to the  I men.  The great question we are called upon, as citi-  ! zens, to face now is, Why is this general strike  [called!  ,,    According to statements made at the Trades  and Labor Council in justification of the moye. the.  I employers are guilty of actions which are criminal..  land which must result in a state' of anarchy if  ^ persisted in.   If these statements are founded on  'fact they reveal a condition which is, to put it  Wildly, alarming, and warrant the closest possible  investigation and legal action being, taken. ]    7\  I.   Tt has been asserted"'Hhe Master Builders' At-"  taociation, a few years ago had a hard arid fast  ^agreement with the carpenters for $4.25. per day,  ibut when a glut occurred in the labor market,  Hhis agreement was immeidately broken, and the  joarpenters informed that they could work for  .from $3 to $3.50 per day."  "Another case' was that of ������ small grocer in  Vancouver, who was selling union made bread,  and who, on this account, was refused sugar and  Bour by the wholesale house with which he had  been trading.   Also a large contractor who had  signed the scale, and he immediately experienced  ] difficulties in securing lumber and other supplies  from the mills and factories.   Another instance  [was where two carpenters undertook, when they  fcwere thrown out of work on account of the strike,  Ho go into the contracting business,   "they found  iithat they were asked a price 22 per cent, higher  ��������� than the association carpenters were paying and  \no guarantee would be given for delivery of sup-  .plies at a specified "date.��������� They-were-therefore-  ; compelled to abandon the contract they had undertaken."  "In another instance a union moulder who was  Lin business in a small way and required coke and  pig-iron at various times. He had a boy who was  apprenticed as a machinist, and when this craft  went on strike the boy went out with them. The  : father was immediately notified that he could get  no more coke or iron until the boy went back to  (work.   Pressure was also brought to force payments of the accounts he owed, and'to delay the  paymeuts of accounts due him, so that finally he  ^had to send the boy back to the shop or be forced  out of business.   As soon as the boy returned, to  I'work, all the father's troubles ceased."  If these cases are'true and can be proven, then  t words fail .us to. express our utter loathing of  'such tactics, these actions are unworthy of men.  .iBecause of these and other similar actions certain  |, union leaders conclude that unionism is threatened in this city and they consequently advise a  general strike.  I] To quote the words of Mr. Pettipiece as re-  sported in the World:  '.- "I am satisfied that the present move has caused  the employers to get together and decide to annihilate the unions, and it is time for the latter to  say, 'Come on,7 McDuff.' The public would be  . better satisfied if the fight were made short and  Indecisive. If it were found that the present meth-  ]ods were inefficient it was better to take a good  r beating at the present time to determine the fact.  | The same causes which brought the working men  .-together at first would bring them together again  -in any event, and perhaps on a better footing,  f. The thing to do was to establish a clear line of  cleavage." 7.       Y'y.v;  ��������� Itis clear from these statements that the ques-  Jti^n at issue, at least in some minds, is whether  1 the unions are to control all labor or not.  We do not propose to discuss that point in-this  ,' issue other than to say that we believe in union  labor, but we take issue with some as to the method used in advancing the interests of unionism.  Mr. Pettipiece says, "The thing to do is to establish a clear line of cleavage." In our opinion  this is exactly what union labor men should not  do. Instead of making a clear line of clearage  between the employer and the worker, it should  be the effort of both to eliminate that imaginary  Lloyd-George's  Insurance Bill  (London Daily Mail.)  Mr.r Lloyd George's National Insurance Bill  came as a complete surprise to Parliament and  to the general public. No one outside a very limited circle had any idea that so wide-reaching and  revolutionary a proposal was being planned. For  weeks the clubs had been full of rumors of Mr.  Lloyd' George's breakdown. His illness, we were  told, was'far more serious than was admitted, aud  some, speaking with a show of authority, whispered that he might not be heard in public life for  another year to come. Happily all these sinister ,  rumors were set to rest when the Chancellor of  the Exchequer rose in his place. He had a great  reception from both sides of the House, and ns  he spoke hour after hour it came on the astonished minds, of his hearers that he was laying  down the plans for a new England. Even now,  with some days to consider it, we have by no  means mastered the magnitude of his Bill or the  logical consequences that are bound to follow its  passing into law. The health of the people is to  be made an affair of the State as it has never been .  before. Illness will cause loss not alone to the  individual but to the community at large, therefore illness is to be systematically fought by sanatoria and by other means. The doctor will inevitably become more and more a public servant  paid by the State; privately endowed hospitals  will more and more decline in numbers and in  importance. Just as the Education Act gave us  an army of State-trained and State-supported  teachers, so the National Insurance Bill will give  us State-trained a^id State-supported doctors. I  am not discussing.whether this will be good or  bad. I simply point out that it is inevitable.  The Kiddle Class.  The cordial reception given to Mr. Lloyd  George's Bill hy men of-all parties and all ranks  of life is a magnificent tribute to the altruistic  qualities of the British people. Here is a Bill'  "which is going to benefit one class largely at the  expense of another. It will undoubtedly add both  directly and indirectly to the taxation now- paid,  by the middle classes. Already the middle classes  are1 groaning under a heavy burden of" imperial  taxation and local rates. Yet scarce a murmur  has been heard from them, and generally they  have nothing but good to say of the new scheme.  Why is this! It is a sign, I. take it, of .the gen-,  uine and 'general desire to help -the'poor.1"'-'"We  recognize that during the past fifty years the lot  of the poor has in many cases become harder and  "more ^uncertain. We know that to large numbers  of "honest and industrious men and women there  is little prospect when they become old and fall  sick save for the tender mercies of tbe poor Law.  If the new Act makes the lot of these easier and  their future better there are few of us who will  grudge our contributions.  line and as far as possible establish a common  interest.' -We can hope for nothing but strife and  loss from actions which spring from such a principle as the establishing of a "clear line of cleavage" or which is backed up by a sentiment as  v expressed in the words of Shakespeare. "Come  on, McDuff." This breathes hatred and invites  contest.  " We are firmly convinced that the great majority of the people in this city are in favor of union  - labor���������when unionjabor is shorn of its agitators^  Of course the professional agitator will answer  .with a sneer that that statement is the usual capitalistic cant and is exactly what the unscrupulous  employer Wants. Our reply is that such a claim  only proves the conceit of the agitator. Labor  men should learn this, that they ate not dependant upon these professionals, but contain within  their own ranks many men splendidly fitted to  handle their cause. It is generally admitted in  these days that the average artizan is, as a class,  better informed on political and economic matters than any other class, and they have the necessary ability to state their cases.  We believe that if the rank and file of the workers wonld elect by ballot a committee from among  themselves to meet the employers, that even yet  a general strike could be avoided. We urge the  men to assert the democratic principles of the  ballot in their own affairs in the same way that  they ask for it in national affairs. We repeat that  the work of the organizer fa %0 j0 the routine  business of the union and not to act as dictators  t and formulate the whole policy of the union.  They have nothing to lose, nothing at stake, but  are hired servants of the whole organization, and  therefore have no right to prescribe what action  shall be taken. It is quite true that it is often  unpopular for a man to arise in his union and  oppose one of these glib gentlemen, especially so  when the organizer has had half an hour's start  and has succeeded in rousing all the fighting spirit  7 of '.fb<������ tV\otv pre������fint. But actions taken tinder the  spellbinding influence of these gentry are usually  regretted and frequently result in the strike becoming a fizzle.  Let the men demand a referendum vote on the  matter, and then appoint a committee, not too.  large, from, among their own active members to  take up; the whole question with a similar committee from the employers and we-believe there  can yet be obtained a happy solution. Unionism  is not at stake, it was never stronger than now,  .but precipitate action now may jeopardize the  future of unionism which would.be,a matter for  sincere regret. On the other hand the attitude  of the employers should be watched and any attempt on their part to complicate matters should  be strongly denounced. It is up to the fairmind-  ed among them to assert their influence in behalf  of an amicable settleemnt of this matter.  Mayor Attacks  Western Call  Let Public Judge from Following .Quotations,  . Last Monday, at a special meeting of the City  Council, nis Worship the Mayor took occasion  to call the editor of the "Call" some very nasty  names. His worship left the chair, and pulling  out of his pocket the last issue of the Western  Call, proceeded to read the last paragraph, which  consisted of some slight reference to himself.  The statement made in that paragraph was to  the effect that Aid. Enright and the Mayor^wcre  opposed to an impartial investigation of the Fire  Department. His worship stated that he had  never opposed an investigation, but only objected  to an independent committee, stating that the  Fire and Police Committee had already called on  Aid. Stevens to appear and either prove or retract  his statements in the "Call," and that that was  all the investigation necessary.  : Now, we purpose leaving the public to ^judge  from the following press items whether the Mayor  is in favor of an impartial investigation or not.  Before proceeding, however, we' wish to thank  His Worship for the distinguished honor he accords this journal by making its editorials a subject for discussion by himself before the City  Council. We were under the impression that the  City Council were elected to transact the city's  business, and not to act as critics of newspaper  editorials; however, apparently we were in error  in this.  Do the Mayor and Aid. Enright oppose an impartial investigation of the Fire Department?  Let the reader judge from the following:  1. "World," May 23:. "I shall be surprised  if the Council allows it to go before a special committee.  If.they do, I shall certainly not act upon .  it."���������His Worship the Mayor.     ^ ���������:':  2. EWorld," May 23: "We are proud of  the department and the manner in which it is  managed, and of its apparatus."-^-The Mayor  again. (.Reader, please watch the coming investigation.) .-''-,     .iO^A    \  - 1 "! am jmalterably oppoaed to a special  cqinmittee being appointed to deal with this iJoat-  ter. "���������Mayor Taylor, according to the "Worldi"  May 23. . T  4. "As to the alleged gift of a watch, I am  not informed, but if it were an actual case it was  merely a mistake in judgment and not a subject  which should cause an investigation of a department."���������As the Province, May 23, reports, tbe  Mayori  ��������� 5. "Aid. Enright promptly took exception to  tht terms of the amendment (to appoint a special  committee), stating that the Fire and Police,Committee (of which he is chairman) was the proper  body to make an investigation."���������Province, May  23td.'  6. The public may judge of the impartiality  of the Chairman of the Fire and Police Committee by the following statement which was made  by him without even giving the editor of this  journal an opportunity to prove his published  statements. Aid. Enright stated: "I have no  use for the cur that comes around and bites behind your "back." ~Ald. Stevensywho^ owns-this-  sheet,* makes his lies as practical as a man can  make them."���������World, May 19.  7. "Aid. Enright said he intended to stand  back of the chief, if needs be, even if it meant the  loss of half the members of the department."���������  Province, May 19.  The public may judge by these extracts if  Aid. Enright and Mayor Taylor are agreeable to  a full and impartial investigation.  We ask no favors, but will insist on a square  deal. Our statements have been openly published  in these columns after having been discussed in  regular sessions of the Council. We are prepared  to substantiate them if we get a chance. We further suggest that the public followc losely this  investigation and judge for themselves whether  or not this department of the civic administration  is being properly handled.  INVESTIGATION STARTS.  Since writing the above article, and just as  we go to press, the Fire and Police Committee  have held a preliminary meeting to lay down the  method of procedure to be observed in the forthcoming investigation.  At the outset Aid. Enright, the chairman,  stated that he had had his say and desired to lay  iiside what had happened and conduct the investigation in a perfectly fair and just manner.  The Mayor also strongly expressed himself as desiring to be fair. ".'.'_���������  The city, solicitor stated that it would be necessary for Aid. Stevens to file with the committee  specific charges, and that the evidence would  have to be confined to these questions.  Aid. Williamson stated that in his opinion the  investigation should not be limited to Aid. Stevens, but that the committee should prob the  whole matter to the limit, and that the widest  possible latitude should be given. The balance  of the committee concurred in this view, and  finally decided to ask Aid. Stevens, or any one  else having any charges to prefer, to file the same  with the committee by Friday.  Aid. Williamson also stated that all members  of the Fire Department who should give evidence  should have the protection of the committee, and  that, in plaee of asking them to come voluntarily,  Council to Intervene  The City Conncil decided to offer its services  to the Building Trades Council and the Master-  Builders' Association, to assist in solving the difficulties which it is alleged exists between these  two bodies.  The desire of the aldermen is to atert a strike  if possible, and an effort is to be made to bring  the two bodies together. If this is accomplished,  it will more than justify the action.  As nearly as we are able to judge from extensive enquiries among the union workers, it is highly improbable that any strike will be called: The  mass of the men are not favorable to the strike.  They realize that if they lose it means to a large  extent the dissolution of unionism, and they are  unwilling to risk so much on a single act. It ia  also the firm conviction of many of the men that  the strike could not be made a success owing to  the tremendous influx of strangers to this province this year. This flow of immigration has only  began, hence the necessity of* holding the unions  together in their present form.  ^  It is true that His Worship the Mayor stated  to the Council that he had definite information  that the strike would be called next Monday. In  spite of this positive assurance, however, it is generally the opinion of the men on the street that  during the week the weightier counsels will prevail and the strike be averted.  SEWERAGE EXPERT TO  RECOMMENDED.  BE  A prophet is without honor in his own country.  As with prophets, so it is with the natural advantages which a country enjoys, and those acquired  advantages~which_ are-obtained under-its laws-  and customs���������it often needs the eye of the outsider to discover the striking benefit of some jn-  stitution with which the people are blessed.  The earnest tribute paid to the Canadian Government Annuities system by Mr. William Jennings Bryan during his address to the citizens of  Gait on Friday last should do much to determine  the question for those who have not yet taken  advantage of the system, the opinion coming, as  it does, from one who has made the social problem  a life study. He is reported to have said: "I  have been trying for years to figure out a similar  scheme'for the benefit of the citizens of the United  States, and I cannot understand why every civilized country does not follow the lead of Canada  and encourage the people to put something by  for the day when they will be too old to work.  This is true co-operative government." he added.  While other countries have established pension  schemes, which are but extensions of Poor Law  Belief, the result of which is to pauperize, and  not to stimulate .thrift, the Canadian Government  has. by its Annuities Act. inaugurated 'a scheme  whereby thrift is promoted, and the people are  provided with facilities which will enable them  to help themselves, and at the same time preserve  their self-respect and dignity.  Full information may be obtained by addressing  the Superintendent of Canadian Government Annuities. Ottawa, to whom all letters go free of  postage.  they should he summoned to appear.    This was  also .agreed to..  Tlie committee, on request of Aid. Stevens,  ordered all correspondence of the department for  two years back to be laid on the table, and especially all the correspondence with the Seagraves  Company, and that warrants for expenditures be  placed on the table.  The committee will have the services of an expert court stenographer to take the evidence, and  witnesses will be summoned as requested by any  member of the committee.  The meeting passed off to the entire satisfaction of all concerned���������at least there were no audible objections.   ~ ���������      <l������.  'iMMmi  A-^'-'W'f^L  HI  It was decided yesterday by a sub-committee  of the Sewerage Commission, consisting of Aid.  Stevens, the city engineer, Mr. Fellowes, and  Councillor Churchill of Point Grey,to recommend  the appointment of Mr. R. S- Lea of Moutreal,  as advisory expert in eonnection with an extensive sewerage scheme about to be undertaken in  this citv and outlying districts.   Mr. Lea has. had _  extensive experience in work of thia kind and haa-*;  been consulting anil designing .engineer for more,;;  than thirty systems of waterworks,and sewerage  .in Ca������ada-*nd the-\Jnited States,includingjaifge���������v  projects in'Winnipeg and Regina. He is a fradw  ate of "McGill, 1890, and was .for 4en. years m  charge of the department of municipal engineering, waterworks and sewerage at. that institution, and was also connected with Mr. Freeman  Coffin of Boston, first as chief assistant, and then  as partner, until the death of the latter in 1907.  He has been for a number of years the engineering member of the Quebec Board of Health, and  a consulting engineer in Montreal, and has reported upon a number of large projects throughout Eastern Canada, as well as in Europe, and at  Boston and Baltimore.   He is also a member of  all the prominent societies of engineers.  MR.

I must coagratulate the Rev. gentle-  To the Editor of the "Western Call."  I notice is. the issue of your paper  for May 17th, an article by Rev. Fath-  man on the skill which he has displayed in keeping out of his communication anything which touches on the  real point at issue; whether the state  shall he supreme in matters governing our  relations   as  fellow-citizens,  or whether the civil government shall  subordinate'Itself  to a  religious denomination and be used for the purpose of enforcing the decrees of the  Papacy.    Father   McCuIlough .would  have us believe   that   the   protests  whicii have come from all parts of  Canada regarding the arrogant claims  of Rome have emanated from men who  did not understand the question; and  that it was simply an intolerant attempt on their part to dictate conditions of membership to the adherents  of the Church of Rome.   Conferences,  Synods, Assemblies; bodies   of   men  that contain some of the ablest scholars in the Dominion, have all been mistaken.   How much time and trouble  they might have saved,! if they had  only consulted    Father    McCuIlough  first   After receiving: his explanation  no doubt the matter would have been  dropped, and the Church of Rome couid  have gone on  unmolested  with  her  charitable and    Christlike    work   of  wrecking homes, casting the stigma of  ' adultery upon faithful wives and mothers, and handicapping innocent children for their struggle through life by  branding them as illegitimate. Father  McCuIlough would have   us    believe  that the Ne Temere decree, 1b.a very  harmless document indeed, and that a  violation of its provisions affects Roman Catholics only. . How about- the  Protestant party to a mixed marriage? j  Is he or she a nonentity in the eyes  of the Church .of Rome?   Does he or  she lose all civil and religious rights  after contracting a marriage with a  Roman Catholic before a Protestant  Minister? Is a Roman Gatholic priest,  in violation of tlie civil law, a't liberty  to go into the home of a woman who  has contracted a marriage of this kind,  and tell her that she is living in adultery and that her children are illegitimate?  Those are questions your readers  would like Father McCuIlough to answer. And they would like him to define what persons the Romish Church  considers as Roman Catholics in so  far as the provisions of the Ne Temere  decree are concerned. Does not the  Roman Catholic Church hold1 that anyone who was baptized in'her communion, even though he or .she should afterwards leave the church 1b still a  Roman Catholic?  Let me quote from their own theologians to prove my statement. In a  book called, "The Marriage Guide  Book," which bears the imprimature  of Louis Charles, Romish Bishop of  Salford, the Rev. H. Hohn, a Romish  Doctor of Teology and a Licentiate of  Canon Law, tells us, page 23: "Wherefore- so-called marriages of all baptized Catholics, i.e., marriages (a)  between two Catholics, (b) between a  Catholic and a non-Catholic, (c) between apostate Catholics; that have  been or will be contracted before a  minister of civil functionary since  Easter Sunday, April 19th, 1908, are  no marriages at all. Such parties  will be known as .iving in concubinage, their children are illegitimate,  they are excommunicated, .and they  may be refused Christian burial unless  they are duly repentant, obtain the-|  necessary absolution? and contract  matrimony according" to. the Church's  legislation."  Your readers will now see that the  Ne Temere decree, goes a great deal  further than Father McCuIlough told  them. Why couldn't Father McCuIlough be open and above board regarding the matter and let the, public  know the real facts regarding this decree? Perhaps down in bis heart, he  is somewhat ashamed tbat in this  twentieth century of progress and enlightenment his church should promulgate legislation that savors of the  ''Dark Ages." Your readers will see  that the Ne Temere decree applies not  only. to marriages of two Roman  Catholics, ani. those between Catholics and non-Catholics, hut also to the  is whether mariage in Canada, is a  civil or a church function; whether  a marriage which js held legal by the  courts can be declared illegal, by the  Romish Church; whether Rome shall  m  arriages   of  all   persons   who  have separate that man and that woman,  been baptized in the Roman Catholic  Church. Let me cite a case to show  the utter absurdity of the claims of  the Papacy in this regard.   A boy and  whether they be both Catholic, or  one .a Catholic and the other a Protestant, whom the law declares legally  married; whether the .priests of Can-  girl are baptized in the Roman Catho-|ada, who refuse to take upon them-  nc Church.

Father   McCul-  wisbed to leave one church and join  another. Or to put it in plain English,  Father McCuIlough and the church to  which he belongs denies to the individual the right of liberty of conscience.  And I would like your readers to remember that the statements of the  Roman Catholic Church with regard  to the marriages of couples affected  by the Ne Temere decree apply just  as much to British Columbia as they  do to Quebec. The Roman Catholic  Church in British Columbia says that  every couple married, in violation of  the provisions of the Ne Temere decree is living in adultery, and that  the.issue of such marriages is illegitimate. The only difference is that  in Quebec they can get judges who  lough did not mention the fact that  in the Hebert case, the marriage was  declared null and void, by the Archbishop of Montreal before the case was  taken to the civil courts. I am not  sure that the real inner significance  of this fact has yet been grasped by  the Canadian people. This marriage  was not merely declared irregular,  deficient in point of some legal technicality; it was annulled���������that is to say,  it. was declared that no marriage had  taken place���������not merely no Catholic  or sacramental marriage, but no marriage whatsoever. "What God hath  joined, let no man put asunder" is the  law of Christ What Rome Bays is  that God did not join this man and  woman because none of her official  clergy: did.   But: no Roman priest of-  wil] do the bidding of the church and flciated at the marriage of the majority  legally annul 'such a marriage; but  in British Columbia the judges are  not willing to be made the tools of an  arrogant and intolerant priesthood.  The question before the people of  Canada is not, as Father McCuIlough  would have us believe,   one    simply  of the married people of this province.  The logical conclusion is evident���������so  evident and so nasty that it need not  here be stated. In the final analysis,  it will be found that Rome - really  fiaims that as marraige is a sacrament,  of the church, not person but a Roman  | ALL WORK CALLED.

The citizens  of Canada must keep inviolate the  sacredness of the marriage tie, and to  prevent a repetition of the Hebert and  similar cases, should make uniform  marriage laws for the whole of Canada; should make the civil bond essential to the validity of a marriage;  and should make it a criminal offence  for any person, priest, clergyman or  laynian, to publicly or privately state  that any marriage legalized by the  state is invalid, or to do any act to  influence or persuade either party to  such, to treat it as though it were invalid.".- y7v? 7 y"  - In conclusion, I wish to draw the  particular attention of your readers  to .the last paragraph of Father Mc-  Cullough'8 article. He says that the  matrimonial laws in Quebec which  make the canon law of the Roman  Catholic Church the law of the province, "were fixed long ago by. treaty."  For generations the people of Canada  have) been listening to solemn assurances that the Treaty of Paris secured  to Quebec peculiar privileges, and a  great many people, who- have not  taken the trouble. to Investigate the  statement, have taken it at Its face  value,, and believed it to be true. I  wish to make the statement here that  there is not a special privilege of any  kind enjoyed, by the French race or  the Roman Catholic Church, that was  given by treaty right; and I challenge  Father McCuIlough, or any other  Roman Catholic priest, lawyer or layman to show from the articles of the  Treaty of Paris of 1763 that special  privileges of any kind whatsoever  were given either to the Roman Catholic Church or the French-Canadian  people. I am sure your readers, like  myself, will expect Father McCuIlough  to either vindicate his statement or  else play 'the man and acknowledge  that he was wrong, and admit that  every special privilege enjoyed by the  French-Canadians and the Roman  Catholic Church was obtained by  legislation. When the Canadian people  realize this fact that all the special  privileges on the statute book with regard to race and religion were granted  by legislation, then a campaign will be  started that should have been started  long ago for the elimination of every  special privilege from the statute  books and the placing of every race  apd creed on an absolute equality in  the eyes of the law.

Mr. Justice Gregory's remarks in reference to the jail,' as  well as' the liquor traffic, deserve  earnest attention, for If we tolerate  the existence of a traffic which produces such fearful results, the least  we can do is to provide decent accommodation for those persons who,  by our consent, become the finished  product of the bar, and it is time the  business men woke up to the fact that  they are heavily taxed to pay for that  which the Grand Jury condemns.

The sentiment  si strong enough to compel the commissioners to feel that they must not  grant licenses in those districts, and  if that be so, why these' populations  should be counted for licenses in  other wai'ds is beyond reason.

To this end it is planned to establish here an institution where  feeble-minded children shall be examined and registered, since if. the condition is recognized soon enough the  child can generally be cured. Under  the present system the procedure is to  send mentally deficient children to a  reformatory from which they are released in a few months often worse  than they were before entering. Under the new plan they will not be released until tbey are cured.

Health is a great addition to beauty;  the frail and delicate may be-pretty;  but nothing is more aamired in men  or women, next to looking good tempered, than the bloom of health;  The robust, healthy, bright-looking  fellow, with a warm handclasp, inspires you with confidence no matter  how "homely" 'he may really be. If  you pick out his features one by one,  it is his freshness which makes him  delightful, and it is the same with the  gentler sex. To look fresh is a charm,  and it is only to-be obtained by a  thoroughly sensible life. First, the old  adage of early to bed, early to rise,  cannot be beaten, and, secondly, the  constant use of pure water, both for  drinking and washing, are the main  points of existence. A tepid bath directly you are up and a good rub  down gives you a splendid start for  the day. Also be very particular to  brush your hair well for several minutes as often as you can, for the hair  is the harbor for all the dust you meet,  and cannot be kept too   clean,   and  Pineapple Dainty.���������Dispose a square [ your brushes and combs should    be  Always in Mt.

'' The use of mutton -Instead of lamb  and fowl in place of chicken, will further reduce the cost ot the table,  while the utilization ot all the ^.leftovers in the making ot the tasty dishes  of which there are so many, affords a  further saving of the pennies that may  well be designated as judicious economy."  ���������  Long /before meat" prices became so  exorbitant, food experts told us Ve  were eating far, too much meat, and  now that the purchase ot tbe meat1 represents one of our -most serious  domestic problems, it seems a good  time to cut down the proportionate  supply of this particular food, so long  as there are other things that may be  easily substituted. By th|s I do not  mean that we should deprive ourselves  of necessary foods, even for the sake  of saving a few dollars a month in the  cost of our table, 'but when it is possible- toserye. a" meal-ln-whlch-the-re-  duced quantity of the meat will not  be noticed, and which, when eaten, .will  prove quite as satisfying and nourishing,, it is not easy to see why we  should not resort to such a simple  method of economy.  Personally, T have found nothing  better than dumplings as a means' of  piecing out a scanty supply of beef or  poultryY I make them as follows:  To each well-beaten egg, add one  cupful of sour milk, one half teaspoonful each of salt and soda, and all the  flour that can be stirred in with a  spoon. Dip a teaspoon in boiling water  and use it to place the dumplings in  the boiling broth. Keep the kettle  where the contents will boil briskly  and,do not remove the close-fitting lid  for twenty minutes, when, if you have  been careful not to shape the dumplings too large, they will be done. Have  the rest of the dinner on the table before taking up the dumplings, as they  must not wait or they will become  soggy.  .These dumplings are also excellent  when served with spare-rib stew.  washed constantly, for what is the use  of brushing the hair with a dirty  brush. Another essential duty is to  keep your, teeth clean. Brush them  all over at least twice a day; it helps  tb preserve them more than anything  else, and people with' good teeth seldom suffer with Indigestion. Also, if  you want to be well, don't wear anything tight; it stops the circulation  and causes irritability in the begin-'  ning, disease later. And women should  be careful never to wear high heels.  If they understood the construction of  their bodies Ythey would know what  harm it does them to be tipped forward. A fine square heel is best,  slightly raised. A dinner of meat and  fresh vegetables is necessary once a  day, and flsh being so helpful to the  brain, it is wise to have it several  times a week.  Always remember to cut your food  small and eat slowly, and sit'up perfectly straight at least ten minutes  after each meal, as resting in a low  chair after food is absolutely harmful.  Also, to be strong, you require a great  deal of fresh air, but do not sit in a  draught. And exercise is necessary  for health. If you work in an office it  is beBt to live a little way out of the  iclty and walk at least a mile before  you begin your daily task.  iC.Z.rcirV.{.t.

Many do not seem to realize the  economical value of macaroni as a substitute for meat. Especially with  cheese does it take the place of meat,  and it is even more tasty when served  with tomato also.'  To prepare with cheese, boil in  salted water about twenty minutes,  after breaking it into short lengths.  Drain in a colander, and pour cold  water through it, that it may.be pasty  when done. Prepare white sauce by  melting a tablespoonful of butter and  mixing with one of flour and a pint of  milk, adding a half cupful or more,  if.liked, of grated cheese. Put this  sauce with the drained macaroni in an  earthen baking dish and bake one-half  hour in a hot oven.

"This will he positively ray last appearance," he said. "I began my artis-  tic career as a choir boy in the Abbey  when I was seven years old���������fifty-nine  years ago? My contemporaries in-*  eluded Masters Arthur Sullivan and  Alfred Cellier, who were in the Chapel  Royal choir.. We were boon companions and used to play cricket together.

We take up sixteen departments of work with an earnest superintendent ���������tor each, and with the example set us by our dearly loved president, all have worked faithfully and  well.  Our evangelistic superintendent,  Mrs. Lashley Hall, and Mrs. A. James  have held many public meetings, and  many signatures to pledges have been  secured.  Superintendents of purity and mothers' meetings have worked quietly hut  steadily. Shortly after convention  last year the services of Dr. Earnest  Hall of Victoria was secured and he  gave two stirring addresses, one to  women and one to men only. This  question is a burning one in our  Union. Four hundred pages of literature have been distributed by our  superintendent. Literature superintendents and committee have distributed between fifty and sixty thousand pamphlets in hospital, boats and  logging camps.  Superintendents for flower work  have distributed three thousand bouquets, as well as fresh eggs, chicken,  fruits and jellies, and with her committee raised $80 for her own work.  VVe are proud. The roof garden' of  Central Mission has been given into  her hands.  Superintendents for sailors and loggers raised $100 for the building and  furnishing in this institute of a cabin.  We heard the call to furniBh a room  at Central Mission, and the treasurer  for this fund collected the sum of $85,  and we have a four-bed dormitory,  bearing the name of the Mount Pleasant W. C. T. U., the last gift for this  being a lovely Bible.  Superintendents of public and parlor  meetings have held large and enthusiastic meetings.  We have raised for Local Option  during the year, $123.30.  Special home missionary work has  been done to the amount of $65.  A sewing committee was formed to  assist with the sewing of the Children's  Home, and once a month a large  number of ladies attend the home.  Willard day was observed and a collection of $4 sent to the world's missionary fund. Same amount paid for  Mrs. Livingstone's expenses.  Five dollars was sent to the Provincial Rescue Home at Victoria and  $10 paid to the Purity Federation  finance committee of Vancouver. Tptal  amount raised apart from fees, $500.

CITIZENS  Women al������Q_ are_cit_iz_enB and wish to  do tbeir civic duty. Therefore, working women need tbe ballot to regulate  conditions under which they work. Can  men protect themselves without the  right to vote? Teachers need the ballot to secure just wage's and to influence the management of the public  schools. Do men think they could secure better school conditions without  a vote? Business women need the ballot to secure for themselves a fair  opportunity in their business. Do  business men think they could protect  themselves without the right to vote?  Housekeepers need the ballot to regu-  the sanitary conditions under which  they and their families must live. Do  men think they can get improvements  for their district unless they have a  vote? All women need the ballot, because they are concerned equally with  men in good and bad government,, and  equally responsible for civic righteousness.  F. S.H.  MT. PLEASANT W. C. T. U.
