J. Hill, that philanthropic rail-  'y magnate to whom last year Vancouver gave  t) acres of the bed of Falsi' Creek, had a gang  Linen working at the  bridge over the cut at  Irk Drive.   It was not a work of necessity, .for  Jim" has assiduously ignored tlie threats and  ���������adings'of the City Council for over a year.   It  ts a piece of   pure   "cussedness."

We  (item, the work was unnecessary and can only  ^construed as a direct, insult to Canadian ideas.  icVgain.  there  are  a  number  of small  grocery  |>res seattered throughout the residential dis-  ets which make a practice of keeping open on  ndays to the annoyance of the majority of tho  izens. Their chief revenue is derived from sell-  candy or ice cream to Sunday school scholars  H their collection money, a more contemptible  ictice is hard to conceive.  Ivnother violation brought to our notice is that  *die contractor who is'clearing the new Isolation  .spital site, who, it is alleged, is working his  \\ ten hours per day and also on Sunday.  fvVe  learn   that  in   drawing  this   contract   no  T.iise was inserted to cover this point, although  ]s understood that a fair wage and eight hours  day clause was to be inserted in all contracts.

Vancouver is justly proud of her parks.   The  i*k Commission deserve the highest enmmenda-  I'a for the efforts they are making to provide  ^-grounds for the youth and beauty spots for  >se who care to enjoy them. At a great expense  time.and money and a lot of time they,have  jceed'ed in giving to the citizens a number of  endid parks in various sections of the city. It  hough very discouraging to those in charge to  ,1 that by a mischievous practice their work is  tig destroyed. It is alleged that boys, through  jaghtlessuess or intent, break the newly planted  fis and shrubs, pick the flowers and generally  the ornamental work in the parks,  these parks belong to the public and should be  Predated. There is no excuse for young people  > wilfully destroy and deface the plants and  jbs; it is a sign of poor home discipline. There  io fun in it. and besides there is ample pro-;  on for the rough and tumble kind of play on  various recreation parks, so that vandalism  inexcusable,  arents could greatly assist by impressipgTupon.  children  the  necessity: of  protecting -these  iity. spots' and couldjgreatly:assist interesting  lublic sentiment whichf would a!ct as). a������;mds$;-.

During the past week we have had the opportunity of hearing the reciprocity question discussed  from both the Conservative and Liberal platforms  by men of considerable prominence and ability, a  It is our purpose to briefly sum up some of the  points on both sides of the question.  A. S. Goodeve. M. I'., takes the ground that the  consummation of the proposed reciprocity agree-  - ment would result in rendering the work of the  policy of.thc past thirty years, whiclrhas been the  cause of the prosperity which we have enjoyed,  and that, in his opinion, history cannot show a  single case where a nation has been built up  through its dollars, but rather through its ideals  and morals.  lie further takes the ground that the supposed  reciprocity agreement is not reciprocal, in that the  remission of duty in proportion to trade and population is much in favor of the United States, and  that whereas Canada, with a population of 8,000,-  000, had imported from the United States $223,-  000,000 worth last year, the United States, with a  population of 90,000.000 had only bought from us  $112,000,000, and this went to prove that the market of the United States was not so important as  those who favor the agreement would lead us to  suppose. Agaiu, last year 80 per cent, of our exports went to the Motherland, while only 9 per  cent went to our neighbors to the south.  "It is nothing but a case of the Dominion representatives gambling away Canadian resources."  declared Mr. Goodeve. lie then proceeded to  show that the logical market for British Columbia  fruit was to the Prairie Provinces, but if this  agreement passed it would be impossible for us  to compete with the cheap surplus of fruit from  the Southern states. Then this agreement would  result in the "diverting of the great trade routes  north and south in place of east and west, which  was necessary to maintain if we expected to de-  velope Canada.  The chief effect of this new arrangement would  be to fatten the United States trusts and force  Canada into the humiliating position of being in  bondage to the American fiscal systems.  Geo. H. Cowan, M. P., struck the Imperial note  in no uncertain way. He claimed it was our duty  to consider the effect of this agreement, not only  ori Canada, but upon the Empire.  It was our duty to conserve the natural products  of farm, mine and forest and work them up with  our own labor into the finished product.  We had the advantage of the United States in  natural resources and the only reason that we  have not advanced so far as the Americans is  because we had a later start.  According to Mr. Cowan the United States only  consumes 4. per cent, of our total production, and  for this a policy which has developed the country  from infancy is to be thrown overboard.   It is a  . policy like "selling a skin for a dime and buying  back the tail for a dollar." declared Mr. Cowan,  lie further objected to any two ministers making such an important treaty without first having  received a mandate from the people and charac-  Yterizcd^it as an "atrocious crime against the vested  ��������� rightsYof. the citizens, the constitutional rights of  Y7the; priilyihces and the manifest duty, of Canada,:  ^olthe^Bhipire.'-'/- -7:-y .���������������������������,;-;��������� y:y  7f\Y^pir! ^Uali"t������f ^the^l3iberali*threeugentlemen-ad--  " dressed a large gatheri n g.

Cowan and Goodeve.   ��������� 777  7I11 Dr. Clarke,7however, th^7Liberarparty have  a'supporter bfYnioreHthan ordinary ability. His  speech in so far\as it related:to the doctrine and  theory of Fred /Trade was one of the best the  writer has ever heard. It was evident that Dr.  Clarke wras a thorough master of his subject, and  all; apt student of Cobden. He maintained that  the "folly of protection was now being discov-7  7; eired-;'; and many'high protection countries were  seeking new fiscal policies.  Since 1861, declared Dr. Clarke, the shipping  of Great Britain under free trade had developed  from four million tons to twelve million tons,  while the United States, under protection, had-  shrunk from two;, and a half million, tons to one  and.'a half million ,tons. This, in his opinion, was  au unanswerable .argument in favor of free trade.  The doctor spent some time persuading his audience that the annexation cry was the worst kind  of fallacv and offered profuse apologies for; even  iaentioning7such a thing. He maintained that  "trade had nothing to do with sentiment." It  was true -sentiment that was the chief bond of the  Empire, but to say that trade had anything to do  -yvith it was folly. "Germany"'and'Britain were  cited as an illustration. Great Britain did a  greater trade with Germany than perhaps any  other nation, but no one would say there wras any  particular: sentiment between the two nations.  Another illustration used was to the effect that  the capitalist made his investment. where he could  get the best returns.7 English capital to the extent of ������600,000.000 were invested in the United  States, while only ������300,000,000 were invested in  Canada. "Do you think," asked the doctor, "if  the capital invested iri Canada could earn a fraction per cent, more in the United States that the  English capitalist would hesitate to withdraw  it?   No, certainly not." 7  He proceeded to account for the prosperity of  Canada by the wise administration of Laurier,  and quoted figures of the years of the Conservative administration to show that trade had not increased during their regime. He also took credit  for 'the British preference for Laurier and condemned the Tories for opposing it.  Dr. Clark then laid down the principle that  "Every import meant an export." and reasoned  from this .that the agreement with the United  States would be a great boon to Canada. As for  Great, Britain, we would find when tliis agreement was ratified that they would be doing business the same as ever aud on an increasing scale.  J. J. Hill was quoted as authority for the statement that the United States would soon be importing foodstuffs, and this was another reason why  the agreement should pass. As to the alleged effect in changing the trade routes from east and  west to north and south this was only imaginary,  its true effect would only be to increase the  branch lines to the south.  Torching on the cost of "living Dr. Clark laid  the increased cost to' the door of protection, which  only served to make millionaires and ground down  the workers. ,  By this .brief resume it will be seen that Dr.  Clarke was dealing with the THEORY of FREE  TRADE aud not necessarily with reciprocity. We  would warn our readers to be careful to discriminate between the theory of free trade and- a  reciprocal agreement to be applied under existing conditions. Dr. Clarke's speech was an able  exposition of the former but was lamentably weak  as a practical discussion of the great question of  reciprocity.  Let us examine some of the points.   First the  claim that Britain's tonnage had increased while  American decreased.   There is no doubt but that  free trade had something to do with Britain's increase, but the greatest factor was her geographical and physical conditions.   It is a matter of his7  tory that an island nation has always deevloped  a greatest proportion of trade than an inland na- .  tion.   Then, again, Britain had at her door a great  market,   Europe,   where   industries   were   little  known and- in the industrial and'commercial line .  Britain was supreme (this, however, is now changing and other European countries have learned  industries from Britain in recent years).   She also  had, wonderful stores of coal, well developed, giving h'er, a great advantage in that respect.   These  and other causes had as much to do with Britain's  trade development as free trade, and while some  credit is due to free trade yet not all by any  means.  Again Dr. Clarke avers that "sentiment has  nothing to do with trade." All we can say is  that if we eliitiiuate sentiment entirely from our  business ethics they will sink to a pretty low point.  There is little enough sentiment iii business, but  in the name of patriotism we are able to infuse a  little occasionally. We much prefer the contention of Mr. Goodeve that-the greatness of a,nation'does not, rest on the'dollars it possesses but  rather on its moral stamina.  Another point in Dr. Clarke's doctrine of free  trade which will scarcely bear practical applica-  tioii is that every,import means an export.   How  cloes tlie doctor explain; tlie fact that in 1909-10  our imports from the United States was $225,000,-Y  000 while our exportsTwere only $112,000,000; kvY  ^OlO-iaypurYimportsMncrC^  while pur exports remained stationary.-   It will'  be seen that what is a very pretty theory does ont  ywork ;.put|iu..practice;,;7y; '...-;���������"'-.:--;    '���������"::.'-'lukkk:; :-;-k--'  ���������    Again;" this agreement proposes reciprocity in  natural products; please keep that in mind; now  it is well known that raw materials never bring  anything like the value that fnished products do,  so that while our export of raw materials increases Ju quantity so oiir imports of the finished'..-,-  0 and More valuable artielesYmust increase and by  an ever increasing ratio the balance of trade would  accrue to the Americans.   As proof of that letus  quote Dr. Clarke to the effect that the  United  States must soon  import raw  foodstuffs,  consequently  they-, will  have  none  to  export,; consequently the reciprocal trade arrangement will be  somewhat one-sided.   7  ..'Again; the doctor says it will lower the cost .of  living and. by the way, he made a strong point  of this. He directly blamed the high cost of living  ;hk\ multi-millionaires upon Protection. How does  he explain the fact, acknowledged by the Parliament of Britain, that 7.000,000 persons in England  are constantly living on the verge of starvation?  How does he get over the fact that Lloyd George,  that brilliant domestic statesman, has found it  absolutely necessary to bring in an industrial insurance bill to alleviate the awful suffering of tlie  workers of Britain under Free Trade. BRITAIN'S  POOR WERE NEVER POORER, BRITAIN'S  RICH WERE NEVER RICHER, and all under  free trade. Iu our opinion neither free trade nor  protection is the. cause of the fearfuY poverty of  our great centres of population, but rather the  cruel industrial system which as yet is little understood by statesmen or economists.  Mr. Taft has repeatedly states that he did not  Mthink that reciprocity would affect the. cost of  jiving one( way or the other, but that its chief  advantage would be to break down the imaginary  line between two neighbors. He has further  stated that Canada had come to "the parting of  the ways," and now was the opportunity to fay  the foundation for closer relations with Canada,7  If they (the Americans) were to hold- the supremacy of Canadian trade they must prevent if possible a closer imperial trade relationship, and now  >  was the time to act. .,-,,  America has everything to  gain and Canada  everything to lose.  Orangemen Celebrate  Tlie Orangemen of Canada have again celebrated the anniversary of the victory of William of ���������  Orange over James at the Boyue. It has been,an  occasion of more than ordinary interest owing to  the increased interest in the principles of the  association, intensified by the enforcement of the  Ne Temere Decree in Canada.  The effect of the application of this nefarious  decree has beeu to force the Protestant wrorld to  a realization of the danger of allowing the political encroachments of the Hierarchy of Rome, and  has resulted in the influx of large numbers into  this strong and intensely protestant organization.  According to the actual figures given ������*it the  Grand Lodge of British Columbia, just concluded  at AVinnipeg. there has been one hundred and six-*  teen new lodges organized in Canada during the  past year, and in every province there has been  a great increase in membership.  In one of the local lodges recently there was  taken into membership at the same time, a father  and seven sons. It was one of the most impressive.  services ever witnessed in the history of the association in this city, and is indicative of the interest  whieh has been aroused throughout the Dominion.  Last Sunday the Orangemen of the eity, 1,500  strong, marched to the First Presbyterian Church,  where Dr. Fraser, the eloquent pastor, delivered  a stirring address which will be found on another  page. One point, however, we wish to draw particular attention to. whicii is that Orangemen have  no quarrel with the Roman Church as a religious  organization, only insofar as their political aspirations are part of their religion. The fight is  against the Hierarchy of Rome as a political factor  and as it affects our own politics. The objection  in Canada is the same as in France, Italy, Spain,  Portugal and other European Roman Catholic  countries. It is the same fight that Garibaldi  waged in the last century. It is the same as the  Mayor of Rome made last year. It is the continuance of the contest of the days of the Reformation. In short, it is against the material and  political supremacy of the Pontiff of Rome.  The Pope still claims the power to control not  only religious courts,of his church, but to rule  the nations, to dictate thejr policies.    He maintains at Ottawa an official   representative   who,  ranks as a statesman and ambassador to Canada  and is consulted dn affairs of state and received  with vice-regal honors.   It is against this political  interference that Orangemeu have declared war  and that they are justified in their stand has been  amply demonstrated by the  effect of   the   Ne  Temere Decree in Canada/ Civil laws have been  set at defiance, homes destroyed, wives deserted,  children declared illegitimate, and now to give  the finishing touch to this scene of home-wrecking, news comes to the' effect that as a result of  the separation of a man (a Protestant) and wife  (a Roman Catholic), a friend of the husband who  accompanied him in search for his child, was shot  and fatally wounded by a Roman Catholic uncle  of the wife,   ls it any wonder that the citizens of  Canada are stirred profoundly by such pernicious  influences and diabolical practices!  The time has arrived when the press of Canada should take concerted action, together with  other public institutions, to denounce in no uncertain terms the interference of the Roman Hierarchy in the civil and political affairs of our  Ycountrv.    The Jesuits have,  been driven out of  France, Portugal. Italy and are~ah(7ut~~to "be "expelled from Spain because of their evil intermeddling in the affairs of those countries, and  yet Canada is receiving them by the score with  their obnoxious practices.  The following platform was adopted   by   the  Grand Orange  Lodge of   British   America   aud  .might well be incorporated iu the political platforms of other organizations:  Orange Platform.  The Grand Lodge of B. A., at its session in  Winnipeg last, week, unanimously adopted the  following platform for the guidance of Orangemen iii exercising their franchise in Federal elections:,  "1.    The entire separation ol! church and state.  ���������"2.7 Opposition to any interference of the Dominion Government with the different provinces  in educational-affairs.  "3; The resistance of any'further special privileges .to any section of the population - of, the  Dominion either on account of race or religion  and the elimination of any special privileges which  they now possess except those included in the  Confederation compact.Y ���������>  "4. Opposition to any��������� extension, of lingual  privileges beyond those conferred by the British  North America Act.  ''ii. The maintenance of British connection and  the support of any movement: which tends to make  closer and'more binding the relations between  Canada, ��������� Newfoundland and the mother country.  "6. A close supervision of all new settlers and  the encouragement of suitable white emigration  from the British Isles, the United States and  northern Europe. >  ,"    ���������  "7. -A federal marriage law recognizing the  validity of marriages performed by the qualified  clergymen of every-'denomination or other persons  vested by the law with that power: and the enactment of criminal penalties against persons using  their influence to separate legally married couples  by questioning tlie validity of marriages performed in accordance with the provisions of this law.  "S. Government inspection of all religious,  educational and charitable institutions and the  inspection of the books of all institutions receiving  aid from the public treasury." THE WESTERN CALL  ORANGEMEN PARADE  FOR ANNUAL SERVICE  Fifteen Hundred and Two  Line���������Sermon Preached by Rev.  Church���������Compliments Members on  Hearty Welcome���������"Shall Rome Rule  Discourse.  Members of Association Are in  Dr. Fraser at the First Presbyterian  the Splendid Turnout and Extends  Canada"   Is   Subject    of    Vigorous  The  annual  church  parade  of  the the underlying causes and incentives  Orangemen of the city of Vancouver  took place on the afternoon of Sunday, July 9th, to the First Presbyterian  Church, where the pastor, Rev. Bro.  Dr. Fraser, preached an interesting  and instructive sermon on the subject  "Shall Rome Rule Canada?" There  were fifteen hundred and two members of the association in the march  from the hall to the church, and when  the church was reached they not only  filled up the body of the building but  took up a large part of the gallery.  In his opening remarks Dr. Fraser  complimented the members on the  fine turnout which they had made, and  on behalf of the officials of the  church gave them a hearty welcome.  Taking the following text, he preached  a sermon that will be remembered  by his hearers as the best Protestant  sermon ever delivered in the city of  Vancouver: "Stand fast, therefore, in  the liberty wherewith Christ hath  made us free, and be not entangled  again with the yoke of bondage."  "My theme this afternoon is 'Shall  Rome Rule Canada?* To many such  a question may seem unnecessary. To  others it may savor of religious bigotry  and narrow minded sectionalism. We  are constantly being reminded that  this is an age of broad minded liberality, and that the day is past for  resurrecting themes that tend to  awaken or perpetuate strife. I think  all present will agree with such a sentiment, only to some of us the criticism seems to be misdirected. In other  words, it. is a fact that such remarks  are f������r the most part directed not  against those who are seeking to awaken strife but against those who .oppose  which lead to it. Orangeism does not  attack civil or religious liberty.  Neither does it ask any special privileges for itself or for Protestantism.  But. it does stand for liberty, the liberty which Jesus Christ bestows. and .(Britain  it stands fast not only in it but for it.  In a splendid speech given by Rev. J.  A. McDonald, of the Toronto Globe,  before the Canadian Club of this city,  he said: 'There is..a duty incumbent  upon Canada to protect the institutions of freedom that have come to us  and that, are ours.' This is not only  a truism but is in harmony with a  fair interpretation of our text. Because the evidence supplied by the  course of events leads me to believe  that Rome is seeking to destroy these  institutions and enslave Canada, I  venture to ask your consideration of  the question, 'Shall Rome Rule Canada?' Let me assert that it is not the  religion of the Roman Catholic Church  Italy, in Germany, iri France and in  Portugal, she has been denuded of  power, and to a great extent is allowed  to exist in these countries more as a  matter of courtesy than by legal rights.  Yet in no one of these nations, so far  as [know, has the religion of the  Romish church been interfered with.  The governments of these countries  have simply said that there shall be  no interference by the Roman Catholic Church in civil or political affairs.  Ak they have been driven from these  lands they have naturally turned to  landf. that are more favorable for the  pronaeation of their ideas with regard  to the .temporal or political power of  the Pope. This explains the signifi-;  c.cv.i: f:icts that are today manifested |  in Fnsflpnd. One hundred ye.'irs n.zo  fppre  were  no  monasteries   in  Great .  Fifty years a^o they could  iin fiviiofi nnon the finsrors of one  hand. Now tbey nnral,w -100. During |  the h'st eieht ye^rs they ha've increased at the rate of one a month,  and convents at the rate of one a  week. There are today fifteen hundred, members of foreign papal religious orders in Great Britain, and  this number is being constantly added  to by fresh arrivals from abroad. In  Canada it is a thousandfold worse.  During the time that Canada was  tributary to France the French* king  would not allow more monks and  nuns in Canada than were needed in  hoppjt:>!s. None were allowed that  had taken perpetual 'vn������'s; none who  wo"M' 7mt engage in .p"rr,r,T tbe sick  "Every priest swears "in his oath of  allegiance to the Pope that he > renounces and disowns any allegiance  as due to any. Protestant king, prince,  or state, or obedience to any of their  'inferior officers. Twenty thousand of  the agents of Rome in Canada are  sworn along similar lines���������and yet  what they renounce and disown lies  at the foundation- of f-ur national existence. However, the significant  fact for Protestants to consider is this:  The increase in political power and  influence   of   the     Roman     Catholic  'Church in Canada was brought about  jby the supineness of our politicians.  'In the 'Tragedy of Quebec,' a book that  every man should read, the author  says:   'It was  not until the union of  Quebec with Ontario, when politicians  'competed for the support of the heir  a rchy, that representatives of foreign  ���������'(Romish)-orders appeared in the lobbies of the legislature claimiug recognition, .and received acts of incorporation,  not infrequently    with    public  that I am attacking, except in so far or caring for the aged and .bn1 "less.  as the political aspirations of the Altogether there were not more than  leaders of that church form part of its ;I50 nuns and 100 monks.

In 1864 such a hope took on .monks or nuns, of at least    twenty  a more definite shape, when the dogma'  of papal infallibility was made a cardinal tenet of the creed of the Roman  Catholic Church.

Here lies  the danger of today. So long as our  political parties care more for office  than they do lor Country, so long will  they be the puppets of any organized  force and will sell themselves to the  highest bidder. Place over against a  party anxious to maintain itself in  power a force such as the papacy, with  its thousands of trained servants  sworn to a slavish obedience to the  Pope, with a system of education that  tends only to the exaltation of Romanism, and a laity who, kept in the  ignorance oi Gad's word, inflamed by  a genuine passion for their church  and scared by the tlames of hell, are  ready to do anything tnat their priest  commands���������as the British judge with  a French name and Romanist principles did in Montreal when the bishop  made him give up an,appointment to  speak on the subject of temperance,  because the meeting was to be held  in a Methodist church! Well might  the Toronto Telegram say, 'Canada is  perhaps the only country in which a  judge, or any other great servant of  the state, would cancel an engagement  at the request of the church in which  he worshipped.'

Lee and Seacombe Roads  ORANGEMEN PARADE  (Continued from Page 2)  because a man with such a conception  of individual right and liberty should  be exalted to a position on His Majesty's bench. It is only when Romanism intrudes itself into the realm of  civil rights 'and liberties that ������our  question,. "Shall Rome Rule Canada?'  grows in clearness. The author of the  'Tragedy of Quebec' in an article in  the Sentinel says: 'That in this twentieth century, on a continent the very  air. of which is democratic, a body of  men "are laboring to bring about the  creation of a papal nation, sounds incredible, but it is true.' One needs  only to read history to see the extent  to which papal Rome has succeeded.  Suiting her cry to her purpose, she  has subtly, but surely, made headway.  She has advanced from one special  privilege to another until a climax was  reached when the representative of the  government of Canada laid the homage of tlie people at the feet of the  Pope's representative. Sitting every  day of the year at the right hand of  the government of Canada is the rep-lis not wanted. It will insult the king  resentative ot^the Pope, to whom matters purely YCanadian, and having  to do with Canadian progress and  prosperity, are submitted for his approval. When the cabinet, ministers  of Manitoba approached the Dominion  government and asked for an extension of the boundaries of their province, they were sent by the premier  of Canada to the papal representative,  who told them that it they would grant  the Roman Catholic Church certain  concessions their boundaries would  be extended. They refused to make  a bargain with the Pope's emissary,  and as a result their boundaries still  remain the same.  "When we see things happening like  this, does it not seem appropriate to  ask the question, 'Does Rome Rule  Canada?' Take almost any one of  the special privileges that Romanism  enjoys���������privileges that tend to the perpetuation of racial as well as civil  differences, and you will find that behind it all there m the steady pressure  of the papal heirarchy.   We have the  lose.  "An article appeared in the Canadian Magazine for May, copied from  a review printed under the authority  of the faculty of Laval University,  that should be in the hands of every  elector of the Dominion. After showing how the French race has grown  numerically since the conquest, and  after pointing out how they are gradually supplanting the English Protestants in certain parts of the Dominion,  the writer says: 'That which our  fathers have done in Quebec, we shall  do in Ontario, in the West, and in the  Maritime Provinces.' Need I say that  if this prophecy comes true, it means  the subjugation of vCanada to the  papal throne? Whenever Romanism  is strong enough, whenever it thinks  itself strongly enough, entrenched in  the control of Parliament, it will not  content itself with having the acting  chief executive lay at the feet of the  Pope's representative the homage of  Canada. It will then do as the Na  tionalist aldermen did in the city of  Dublin.    It will tell the king that he  **������������..tM������_������..o..9M������Mt_������..t..9Ht_9*������M4..v..V)..s..ftM4Mt..tM4..t���������������.   ^������+..������..������������������~t^...������..������.. ...^..............m  PHONE Fairmont 761  Cochrane  K?*VV  ...:..:..:.  i*VV  *****************  '?.]?****  i4������������.*.������������2.������*.������*������������*.������2.������������������.������m������������������*..*m-*������������������.������������4  K������������VV  *  IN   THE   P^  posting; about 25c per Thousand  hasbeqn incorporated for the purpose of supplying: a simple, effective* invention for making gas. > it is the ������������������    ��������� 7 J       ,:      ; =���������  Wmder tfihe Age^^^^^^^^^-  The tank is simply 'fixe'd out of doors underneath the ground,  charged with petrol; the machine itself is fixed in the basement, or.  anywhere."  ; It is operated by weight, working automatically,  manufacturing the gas only as you use it,i whether it-is one. light or  5*000:" ': The gas is clean, pure, free from poison',' the very best gas  for cooking, lighting or heating.

One wonders  where the spirit of our fathers has  gone, and what a strange spirit of indifference has fallen upon.the British  people that such actions are allowed.  "If you ask me how we are to stem  the tide pf Romish aggression, I have  a twofold answer. The first is by the  gospel of Jesus Christ. The second  is by means of the ballot. There is a  growing need for the organization of  a new party that shall stand for a defensive Protestant platform. "I do hot  mean a religious platform, but a purely national political one that will combine Protestants in opposition to the  political encroachments of the Church  of Rome. All the special privileges  possessed by the Romish church were  granted to them Subsequent to the  Treaty of Paris; and if the people of  Canada so desire, every one of them  can be removed by legislation. But  they never will, and further ones iyill  be granted.so long as Liberal and Conservative vie with each other to see  who can get in and keep in power. I  anomaly today of a country, supposed^7 believe that under proper leadership  ly under the British flag, yet rent into now is tiie tjme t0 commence the work.  There  are enough men cognizant of  Rome's purpose, enougli tovset in motion the new move that will mean the  perpetuation of our liberties, the safeguarding of our Imperial relationship  and the������ establishment of commercial  ; and economic peace in-our land.   Facing   my   question   'Shall   Rome   Rule  Canada:  I answer1, she is trying to. do  so.    But she Will not succeed if the  Protestants of Canada are only true  to their religion and to themselves.   I  have   no   animosity   towards   Roman  Catholics.   I pray that the blessing of  God may rest upon each one of them;  but I,say to the h'eirarchy    and    the  papacy:   'Hands off our civil  and  religious-liberties.'    For    when    Rome  touches these the dark ages of cruelty,  in whicii she almost wiped liberty off  sectionalism; first, by the official use  of two languages; second, by the us<b  of separate schools, in many of which  French a swell' as English is compulsory. We find a land tax in operation in the province of Quebec; that  is used for the maintenance of Roman  Catholicism, arid which in its operation is gradually driving Protestants  out of that province and making it  a papal preserve. And we find this  same church' openly advocating the  establishment of a papal state. Let  me again quote from''The Tragedy of  Quebec': 'In the handboodk of missions written by Father Hamon, he  says���������The movement begun over forty  years1 ago to extend the. parish: system over "the eastern townships had a  larger design than merely expelling  the Protestant farmers. It was a necessary step towards , the conquest of  New. England  for the Church.    It is  the face of the earth, rise like a foreboding cloud. May tlie liberty of  Christ be ours.

We are very glad to hear Mr. Pen-  gelly, of Second Street, South Hill,  has accepted the post of the public  health officer for this district. He  will certainly be the right man in the  right place, and has already starteii  some active work in the municipality.  The inhabitants around the back of  the IGth Avenue have long been  troubled by the refuse of a butcher's  shop, and other unpleasant rubbish  from two other houses,'but, thanks to  Inspector Pengelley, it has all been  cleared away, and a healthier atmosphere already surrounds the place.  But it was not managed without a  good deal of difficulty, as the offenders  took no notice of the twenty-four  hours' warning given them, and in  the end Mr. McLeod was fined $10  and costs, and Mr. McKenzie and Mr.  Cutter $1 and costs each. Perhaps it  is only kind to warn all householders  that a strict watch will be kept on  all their back yards and gardens, etc.,  and that it is absolutely necessary for  them to keep them in a sanitary state.

The rollers in  turn will be fixed in a permanent place  in the airship just as a ship's compass  it. As the airmen pass over each part  of the country they will thus be enabled to identify it without moving  in their seat by merely unrolling the  map. These sectional maps ���������will represent areas about ten miles wide,  thus making an allowance for the  aviator being blown off his course.

Speculation is rife in financial and  commercial circles as to the meaning  of the heavy buying which has been  taking place recently of the bonds of  the Amalgamated Asbestos Corporation. Quebec, ������s js known, produces  nearly ninety per-cent of the, .whole  asbeBtos supply of the world, and it. is  one of the province's moBt valuable  assets. Efforts have been made time  and. again to obtain control of the  output and even more determined effort is apparently being made now.  The buying is being done quietly and  appears to emanate from the United  States���������the city of Philadelphia in  particular. It may be that this is another attempt of the wily Yankee to  get his grip on another of Canada's  "national heritages'," or it may be  that it is merely a movement on the  part of those on the "inside" to buy  up on the strength of information  which leads them to believe that a  boom is due in the industry.  Battles Against Grub and Moth.  Along the country roads. of the  Province of Quebec there are some  conspicuous demonstrations in entomology. There are examples of  what the grubs and moths will do if  left alone, what happens if the public  authorities interfere with them and  what the natural beauties of the forests could be at this time of the year  under favorable conditions. Property  along the St. Lawrence and Ottawa,  as valuable and as seriously invaded  as any part of the Province, is again  an object lesson for the supporters and  critics of the Province's policy toward  the insect situation. There the summer residents have come forward  again in a public-spirited way and  given liberally toward the checking of  the moths, irrespective of ownership  of the infested woodlands. Everything  is being done that science and prac-1 approach to the Victoria bridge and  tical experience can command and the come out just west of the Longueuil  conditions   that   have   been   brought  wharf. a  about there are the results of a method for which the critics bare offered  no substitute. The result ii tbat, although grubs anr moths still appear,  tbe trees are thriving and the foliage  is fairly, well preserved. In other  parts of the Province rattling  branches, picked hare of green, are  an* evidence of tbe inroads of the insects and the Inability or lack of cooperation of the communities to cope  with the pests.  New International Canal.  Plans for a big undertaking which  has in view the establishment of a  new canal between Montreal, Lake  Champlain and New York have been  placed before the Department of  Public Works at Ottawa for approval  by Mr. C. L. Hervey, of Montreal, on  behalf of the Lake Champlain and tne  St. Lawrence Ship Canal Company.  A 12-foot waterway is proposed, and  the scheme will involve the construction of twenty-one miles of new canal  through the counties of Chambly, St.  JohnB and Laprairle.,  The work will start at Fryer's Island, five or six miles below St. Johns,  and terminate at Longueuil, opposite  Montreal. The estimated cost does  .not appear from the plans, but will be  up in the millions.  The object in view is the connection  of Montreal with Lake Champlain by  a better system of water way than  now exists, while from Lake Champlain connection will be made with  the Hudson River and New. York.  The plan shows that the route will  begin at Lake Champlain and follow  the Richelieu River to Fryer's Island.  At that point the new canal will begin.  It will pass through the first concession south of Chambly Basin. It will  cross the little Montreal River at  Cote St. Louis de Donzague, and  thence through the parishes of St.  Francois de Borgia and Cote L'Ange  Cardien, Cote des Prairies, Cote St.  Lambert, and the Parish of Longueuil,  to Longueuil town.

Bearing' in mind that the assessment totals'over 37 millions ($37,000,000) this  year as compared with 13 millions  ($13,000,000) in 1910 it was only reasonable', to expect a reduced mileage.  Instead of this, however, the council  announced an increase of 25 per cent.,  viz., 12% mills on improved land and  22% mills on wild land. Widespread  dissatisfaction already exists and has  been expressed at the haphazard way,  in which the last assessment was conducted, many values being placed absurdly high, whilst some were under  valued. The unprecedented number  of 325 appeals were submitted to the  Court of Revision, and iu very many  instances values were amended to a  reasonable figure. In one case .acreage assessed  at  $.'.,000  per acre  was  Mr. W. H. Morrison, C. E, has commenced his new duties as municipal  engineer for South Vancouver at a  salary of $200 per month. Mr. Morrison has an experience of over'twenty,  years with civic and municipal engineering problems, and comes with  the highest commendations. Together with Councillor Dickinson, chairman, of the Board of Works, he has  already made an introductory tour of  inspection round the municipality.  M r. Eben N. Harrie, who recently  resigned the position of engineer to  South Vancouver, has been appointed  assistant engineer to Burnaby municipality at a salary of... $140 per month.  The plans of Mr. R. D. Itoyston, assistant engineer to South Vancouver  municipality, have been passed for a  new bridge over tbe ravine on Rowling  road, costing $3,000. The bride is to  be 31.5 feet long, 24 feet wide, with a  5-foot sidewalk, and will be 35 feet  above tho ground.

The  municipal council were unable to justify the assessor's valuation, taken  as a whole, and scared by the opposition ,desided to reduce the entire  assessment total by 20 per cent. This  is a rough and ready method of financial adjustment and scarcely popular  as in numerous cases even now. ,ihe  value assessed is too great, and in  others where it was already fairly  low it is reduced out of proportion.

This would have  enabled many more ratepayers to participate in the enjoyment. aSturday  picnics present many drawbacks to  numerous persons other than storekeepers, as to many the week-end is a  busy time for shopping and arranging  various household matters. They  want some ladies on that ratepayers  association, at least for these social  events.  "Sunnyside" (D.
