Preparations had been under  Iway by the Victoria brethren for months, and each  ['member of the committee that had the nrrange-  sments in charge must feel gratified at the-success-.  ji'ul manner in which every feature in connection  .with the day's proceedings was carried.-out.   The  weather was all that could be desired;   Tlie sun  shone with all its, brightness, but the heat was  ���������tempered with the balmy breezes from the bro/id .  [Pacific, and tlie brethren made the long march  [without   any  .discomfort.     The   brethren   were  [around earlv in the morning, and the two lodges,  [.Victoria L. O. L. No. 1426 and Premier L. 0. L.  [No. 1610, were, opened at ten o'clock.   Bro. S. C: 7  [Court was in the chair in 1426, and in the absence  [of the AV. Al. of 1610. the chair was taken  by  )the deputy master. Bro. J. C. Scott.    A number  [of the visiting brethren were at these meetings,  some from  Seattle. Wash., and a number from  (Vancouver, who came over on the afternoon boat  fin July llth.   At 10:30 tlie lodges adjourned and  the brethren marched down to the E. & N. station  Ito meet the special train carrying the brethren  I rom Nanaimo, Duucans. and Ladysmith.   These  jrethren were escorted to the hall, and then au  itdjournment was made for dinner, with the understanding that the  brethren  would  meet  at  the  II P. R. dock at 1:00 p.m. to meet the large contingent from Vancouver, that was coming oyer on  (he Princess Charlotte. At 1:15 the Princess  Kharlotte steamed in with a record crowd. Every  loot of space on the boat was filled, and it is estimated that there were 1,800 on board.. As the  jlifferent lodges came off they were placed in posi-  -on by the Grand Marshal. Bro. W. H. Trowsdale,  [hd the procession marched up to the hall,. Ayhere  few minutes' rest was taken before lining tip for  lie march to the grounds. The parade was then  |,jrmed up under the direction of Bros. W. H.  rowsdale, H. M. Abercrombie,, and .J.

Jjast Monday evening (he new famous ''whitewash" report "of'.the majority of the investigating  committee was presented to the City Council  and was promptly tabled. One member of the  council characterized it as "an insult to the council to bring in such a report." .Another said "It  was a farce and had absolutely nothing in it."  "A clear majority rejected it entirely.  As a piece of compromising, non-committal  work that report is by far the most aggravated  illustration we -have ever seen. It found certain  charges proven, but in each case the finding was  accompanied by an apology for tlie "mistake"  on the part of the official. The report concluded  with a clause to the effect that "notwithstanding  our criticisms and'recommendations, we must not  lose sight of.the long and faithful services of the  Chief, etc. * * * We fully appreciate the  fact that lie is human and is liable to make an  occasional mistake like the rest of us. * * * "<  Oue would conclude from this that there was  some, ground of common interest between the poor,  ill-treated chief aud the kind, tender-hearted  committee.  Here i,s another illustration: Referring to the  charge that the chief had appropriated for his  own use a boiler and tank belonging to the city,  which had cost the city upwards of $130, the  committee says, "We would suggest that the  chief be requested to return the same to the city."  Or, in other words, "We hope you wont be offended. Chief, but perhaps, you know, it might be as  well to just; well, you know, Chief, why simply  put it back, because some of the ignorant public  might not understand that you had a right to  it, etc., etc.,"  Not very long since a lad of 14 or 15 years of  age appropriated to his own use $3.85 which belonged to his employer. He peddled milk for a  very small wage, and for his awful offense got  three'years in the, reformatory. Had, he been a  year older he .would have been sent to the 'peni- '  tentiary. Another fellow takes an overcoat belonging to some one else, he gets a couple fof  years to think it over. But an official with a fat  salary can appropriate public property and is  complimented byji civic committee for his honesty  a������d made the object of sympathy by the chief  magistrate of the city, and those who had dared  to question the action arc branded as "rascals,"  "scoundrels," and guilty of "outrageous tactics,"  etc. Referring to the chief, the mayor said "lie  should be congratulated for h.iving such a clear  record. We owe him a debt of gratitude." Evidently the chief was satisfied to discharge that  "debt of gratitude" Avith boilers, tanks, etc.  - The whole report was along this line and constituted a complete apology for the chief's "mistakes."   The council rightly rejected it.  The minority brought in a report which was  clear-cut and more nearly to the mark.   "Charge  1, res wrongful use of chief's auto, proven. Charge  2, that unwarranted favoritism was shown Seagraves, proven. Charge 3, that aerial truck was  experimental, proven. Charge 4, that said aerial  truck7 was not worth money paid for it, proyen.

We also find that Deputy Chief Thomson was  aware of these breaches of discipline and took no  action to deal with them."  When this report was introduced it was moved  by Aid. Williamson and Crowe that report be received. Then commenced a battle royal in wits  and parliamentary procedure. His Worship was  constantly in consultation .with-one or the other  of his faithful"henchmen. Aid. .MacPh'ersoh, En-  bright and Ramsay. He generously ruled everything in order that came from tliat quarter and  everything out of order which came from those  supporting, the minority report. Finally, when  everything was at a deadlock, and when the previous question had been moved, and while Waiting  # for His Worship to make up his mind whether-to  put it or not. Aid. Ramsay came to the rescue  with the startlingly ridiculous contention that  the minority report was New Business. The mayor  hastily jumped at this way out of his dilemma and  ruled that it was New Business. This decision  was so absurd that practically every one present  laughed outright at the idea that a minority report could be new business, but it soon became  evident that such an extreme absurdity as this  was not too much for His Worship and he stuck  to his guns. When asked for the authority for  his ruling, he promptly replied that Aid. Ramsay  was his authority and refused anything further.  The majority of the council were thus forced to  allow the matter to rest for two weeks and satisfy  themselves with putting in notice of motion, which  was done. ,  The following is a copy of the motion which  will come up at next meeting and will no doubt  be.-'passed: .<���������'"  "That, whereas, according to the report of Aldermen McMaster and Williamson and according ,  to the evidence now before us, a copy of which has  been,in the hands of each alderman for some, time,  and whereas the following charges, Nos. 1. 2. 3, 4,  6, 9, .11 and 12 have been -proven, and the following not proven. Nos. 5, 8, 10, andd charge 7 partly  proven. Be it therefore resolved that this council  ..in Tegular-meeting assembled, orders':.  (a) That Chief Carlisle be censured by the  council and that the city comptroller and storekeeper be instructed to at once secure the return  to the city of the property wrongfully appropriated by the ehief.  (b) That Deputy Chief Thompson be severely censured and reprimanded for not enforcing  the discipline and for his unbecoming conduct as  an officer of the brigade.  (e) That Capt. Jordan and II. Stephens, of  No. 5 .hall, be discharged forthwith.  (d) .That. Firemen Alexander, Porter and  Enright be reprimanded.  (e) That the services of Auto Expert King  be dispensed with. /  (f) That a standing order be now made that  in future auy employee of the department who  brings liquor in any quantity or allows same to be  consumed in any fire hall or who allows questionable characters to frequent same, be discharged  for just offence.  REPLY TO CRITICS.  Some of our critics have been so persistently  purblind to the facts regarding the Fire Department investigation that it seems to be necessary  * to make some public statement in order that the  actual truth may be known.  We. will deal first with the criticism of the  Saturday Sunset in their.issue of July, 15, 1911.  The editor of that journal states that VThe net  7 resultTof the investigation of Aid. Steven's charges  against the fire department is a three thousand  dollar, bill for stenographers' services, and absolutely nothing but what could have been dealt  wit?'*��������� !i'i one session -of the Fire Committee."  With8 reference to the cost of the investigation:  This was authorized by the Fire and Police Committee themselves. Aid. Stevens had never suggested that counsel be secured. This suggestion  was made by a member of the committee absolutely independent of him.  As to the contention that the regular committee of council could have dealt with the  charges, we simply point to the attitude of the  majority of that committee. The origin of this  investigation was in objections raised by Aid.  Stevens in the regular council meetings, which  were ruled out of order by the mayor and made  the occasion of a bitter attack'on his, the mayor's  part. Subsequently these objections were published in the Call in the form of definite state-  ���������"���������nients. -These were brought to the attention of  the Fire and Police Committee and in place of  any attempt at making an inquiry the chairman  indulged in a personal attack upon Aid Stevens,  calling him a "liar," a "cur" and a "yellow  '.^Jf9.Sfl7: Tit was then jip jo the Yt^epresentatjye <>f 7  WardV. to make good, which he has been able  to do.   Practically every charge has been proven  to the hilt.  The Sunset then states that the.boiler and tank  wrongfully taken by the chief to his private house  was only worth about $15. ������  The voucher for the boiler, on file in the city  hall, shows $130 as the purchase price. The tank  was taken off a chemical engine and no definite  valuation placed upon it. The boiler was as good  as new and-was only removed from its place because it was too high to allow of its flues being"  ���������properly cleaned. It carried 140 pounds of steam  when removed and was in first-class order.  Then the Sunset' gets off this: "Why. did he  not take the story of-misdoings of No. 5 Hall to  the proper authorities? * *-.* There is no  doubt, and no one may assert otherwise, that had  Aid.'Stevens'; gone like a gentleman lo the chief'  he would have dealt effectively with the matter."  ��������� The facts are that similar disgraceful scenes  were enacted at the headquarters, No. 2 hall, and  the chief was advised of the fact and did nothing':,  and further,'on.Sunday. June IS. 1011. there was  a meeting held������������������ at'No. 2 fire hajl ������������������(headquarters),  those attending being representatives from Xo. 5  hall who were implicated in the orgies and revels  there, and a number of the men of No. 2 hall.  ���������'The object of the meeting being to discuss what  action . should ' be taken to" keep tlie disgraceful  sceues of their two halls from being brought up-in  the investigation. Deputy Chief Thomson was in  an adjoining room aud was consulted.by.the men  as to the best course. He advised the men to  wait upon Aid. Stevens and throw, themselves on  his mercy and ask that, nothing be done about," it.  A committee"-was appointed to do this, but before  this committee saw--him* the matter was brought  out in the investigation on tbe following Tuesday  evening.  The Sunset playfully characterizes the revels  at these halls "the peccadilloes of a few high-  strung young fellows in the mood for a lark."  AVe cannot see it in this light. Firemen who are  allowed to "lark" while on duty cannot be de-  cipline it is often necessary "to make examples  of those guilty of misdemeanors. Aid. Ramsay  suggested that we "temper justice with'mercy."  That is a pretty theory, arid quite applicable when  the object of your mercy is duly repentant, but  pended upon, and a'system or official which'could  look upon the orgies of No. 5 as "a mere lark"  is not to be trusted with the protection of the lives  and property of the citizens.  'Again, "Stevens did his best to besmirch the  reputations, of .private citizens." This is not true.  Certain statements, definite and clear-cut, were  made and in proving these statements it was  shown that some parties, not exactly private citizens either, had been indulging in joy rides at  the city's expense. If the citizens-are agreeable  to purchase expensive autoes for persons in private or .semi-officfat positions to use for joy rides  out of the city-arid to visit resorts in the city, etc.,  if, we repeat, the citizens wish this, we are silent.  As regards the personal remarks of our friend  Bruce, we pass that up, and gracefully acknowledge that Bruce can heap more abuse to the  square inch upon those who dare to differ from  him than any othei\man in Canada, not excepting  the editor of the Calgary Eye Opener.  Another of our kind critics is the World and  its manager, the mayor.  On July 13 this journal had the following in  its editorial columns: "Long before the investU  gation was brought to a conclusion it became  evident that Aid. Stevens had, wittingly or unwittingly, permitted himself to become the tool  of some persons who had it in for the chief. * ���������  Aid. Stevens' position is an unenviable one.  Through a suburban publication of which he is  editor he hurled charge after charge against the  chief. He demanded, and in view of his office as  an alderman could not well be refused, an expensive investigation of charges which it has now  been shown rested almost entirely upon merest  street gossip and hearsay."  Ou May 23 this same estimable journal came  out with the following,flaring headline: 'Stevens'  Scalp Sought by the Council.���������A full investigation  of the fire department will he made, arising out  of charges,made by Aid. Stevens, and he will be  summoned to appear and substantiate the charges  he "made."  These two statements do not agree very well,  in-spite of the fact that they were published in  "the paper that prints the facts."  The truth of the matter,is simply this: About  last April tenders were "opened re fire apparatus  and because the Seagrave Co. had been allowed  to split their tender after having seen the figures  of other bidders, and because their tender was  over $6000 higher than others. Aid. Stevens took  exception to the tender. At the same meeting a  proposal was made to buy the chief another new  auto, although he had had a new one only ten  months previous. To this alsb Aid. Stevens objected. The mayor thereupon sharply called him  to order and refused to allow him to speak to  the subject. Subsequently, through the columns  of the Call these and other irregularities of the  - fire department were criticized. These criticisms  were read at meeting of the Fire and Police committee and Aid. Stevens was asked to prove his  statements. The attitude of the mayor and Aid.  Enright. throughout the whole discussion was exceedingly prejudiced and bitter, and it was because of this that the formal investigation was  ordered. Had there been the remotest degree of  ...fairness on the part of these gentlemen it is prob-  ^a.ble=that^theseairregularities"could-have been rem- -  edicd. The investigation was made necessary by  the attitude of; the mayor and the chairman of  Fire and Fol ice committee.  The World says: "It has been shown that the  charges rested upon merest street gossip and hearsay." The mayor and Aid. Enright and MacPherson are the only oueswho would care to subscribe to that statement. The0majority of the  council firmly believe that the charges are practically all conclusively proven. Even the mayor  and his henchmen admit that a good many of  them are proven, only their ethical ideas are such  that they see no harm in purloining boilers, etc.,  and contend that civic autos are meant to joy  ride.in, and that a truck which was out of commission 103 days out of 167 is a splendid-success,  and that although there, are disgraceful revels  in the halls, the chief and deputy chief should  not be held responsible," and - that $6000 extra  profit is good business on the city's part to pay  for a fad, and that it is (piite right and proper  for Vancouver to pay officials to go ami demonstrate machinery for private companies in other  cities, and so on; in fact, in their opinion, irres-  spective of cost, no wrong could be. done'-by the  ���������.Vancouvo.nl-fire department-officials.  FINALE.  The investigation is now ended. The, two reports and the evidence:- are in uth.e possession of.  the great jury of public opinion, and we are perfectly satisfied to rest onr ease there, believing  that the numerous,public and private expressions  of approval of our. course is a complete vindication of our action in bringing this matter forward. , ii '��������� '���������'  The- duty has been ;i most distasteful one and  has caused considerable ill-feeling on the part of  those who have been hurt, but it is impossible to  expose wrongdoing without causing inconvenience  to the wrongdoer. Tn performing this unpleasant  task it has been' necessary to reveal conditions  which, to say the least, were 'unlovely," but; these  dark spots can only be eradicated by exposure to  the light. Evidence was also presented which reflected seriously on the character of those implicated. This'is-a. matter for regret, but men must  be prepared to suffer the consequences of their  actions, and in the interest of efficiency and dis-  is scarcely possible where the parties coucerned  (Continued on page 4} THE WESTERN CALL  For the Home  Recipes.

Apricot Pudding���������A daint pudding,  appropriate to serve at Easter time,  the colors being gold and white, can  be made in the following manner: Boil  one pound of dried apricots until tender; press through a sieve, return to  the fire with one cupful sugar; cook  thick and then all two t������::~pr,mifvls  Keystone silver white gelatine, dissolved in three tablespoonfuls cold water,  and stir until gelatine is dissolved; remove from fire. Prepare a boiled custard, using one quart of milk, three j  eggs, half a cupful of sugar; cook until it thickens, then add two tablespoonfuls of gelatin dissolved in three  of cold water; add one tablespoonful  of vanilla. Put the apricot jelly and  the custard into a mold in alternate  layers; allow each layer to become  thoroughly set before adding the next.  Serve with either plain or whipped  cream. This looks pretty when moulded in sherbet glasses and served with  a large spoonful of whipped cream on  top.

Add alternately one-half cupful of milk with  two cups of flour into which has been  sifted three teaspoonfuls of baking  powder. Beat the white of five eggs  to a stiff, dry froJ:h. add one-eighth of  a teaspoonful of salt. Fold gently into the batter, and when well mixed add  one-half a teaspoonful of vanilla.

Break one-half pound  of marshmallows into pieces and melt  in the double boiler. Add four tablespoonfuls of hot water and cook until  the mixture is smooth. Add the milk  syrup to this, stirring steadily. Take  from the flre and beat until cool and  thick enough to spread between the  cake. This may be used for the top as  well, or an extra frosting made with  one cupful of fondant, the white of an  egg, beaten' until stiff, and one-fourth  teasponful of vanilla. Melt the .fondant over the fire for a couple of minutes. Remove and beat until cool and  stiff enough to spread. Flavor with  vanilla or lemon juice.  To freshen stale cake, dip it for a  second in cold milk and then rebake  it in a rather cool oven. Stale bread  may be treated in the same way.  Keeping groceries in paper bags is  i'the hallmark of a slovenly housekeep-  1 er.    There should be a proper receptacle, tin, box or glass jar, for every-  . thing. ..'.--.

Plaster of paris figures which have  become dingy and brown may be  brushed with a soft brush' and then  washed with warm soapBuds without  injuring them.  Burns should always be treated  quickly to save pain and.avoid scars.  Baking soda, olive oil, craped raw potato, molasses or even milk are efficacious.  SULPHUR  A  PREVENTIVE  OF  MOSQUITO   BITES  Hints.  Preserves, jellies and canned fruit  should be kept in a dark, closet. >t  the closet has a glass door it should  be covered with a dark green shade.  One or our readers informs us that,  having seen a statement in some English medical journal to the effect that  sulphur, taken internally, would protect a person against flea-bites, it occurred to him to try it as a preventive  of mosquito bites. Accordingly, he  began taking effervescing tablets of  tartar-lithihe and .sulphur, four daily.  He provided himself with several lively mosquitoes, and having put them  into a widemouthed bottle inverted  he bottle and pressed its mouth upon  his bare arm. The mosquitoes settled  on his skin but showed no inclination to bite him. If this gentleman's  experience should be borne out by  further trials, it might be well for  persons who are particularly sensitive  to mosquito bites to take a course of  sulphur during the mosquito season,  especially in view of the growing  opinion that the mosquito is the common vehicle of malaria;'���������N.

"For we know that, the/vhole creation groaneth and travalleth in, pain  together until now."���������Roman VIII., 22.  When man fell, he dragged all creation down with him, and the portion  which the lower creatures now occupy  of suffering and death is entirely owing to man's original sin. Ought we  not then to be specially kind and tender-hearted to animals and birds, and  to see that the power over them with  winch God has intrusted _ us, is not  used to abuse them, but to defend them  from unnecessary suffering?  The royal moralist, King Solomon,  lays it down as an axiom that an age  of people which is moved by considerations of religion, equity and right will  be kind to animals, and that cruelty  and wickedness are always found'together. A people that are coarse and  brutal in one set of relations w'ill be  the same in all.'. The treatment of  dumb animals is a test and touchstane  of character to a much greater degree  than at first appears. Those who display cruelty towards animals will generally be found heartless in their dealings with others. You can tract it in  history; in the early ages the "mighty  hunters" founded tyrannical despotisms, culminating in Babel; the  Romans in the degenerate days of the  empire, soon passed from the degrading exhibitions of lions arid ponthers  tearing each other to pieces in the  amphitheatre to gloat with an appetite  which gradually required a new stimulus and a mightier sacrifice, over the  mutual destruction of captives and  slaves���������gladiators trained to fight to  the death. We, living in a Christian  age, find it hard to realize that men,  women and children crowded in their  thousands to witness the dying agonies  of men wounded to death, and that  delicately nurtured Roman gentlewomen helped to decide, by the upward  or downward motion of the ���������:.thumb,  whether the wounded should be spared  or murdered in co.d blood, while /Inhuman shouts hailed the wretch who  won. You know Byron's noble lines  of indignant pity:��������� 7 y' 7y:  "J see before me, the gladiator lie^Y  And how in the second   verse   he  touchesso infinitely sad a chord : ���������  "He heard it,.-tout he heeded riot\\ his  '.eyes ������������������y.vvyy 7--";  Were with his heart, and that \yas far  ,'���������'������������������ away;    7 ..''-777: 7'.  He reck'd not of the life he7iost, nor  prize?; :7"7 "'��������� :;Y 7; ���������:-...  But where his rude hut by the Danube  . ---lay���������--., *'���������''  There ..were his young barbarians all  at play,  There was. their Dacian - mother���������he,  their sire,  Butchered to make a Roman holiday."  At last, it was the most select and  favorite amusement of the Roman  people, to. laugh and gloat over the  death throes of Christian saints, young  meri; and maideriis, children and old  people, who welcomed death by being  torn to/pieces by wild beasts rather  than gi>e up their faith in Jesus  Christy. - y  In modern times, also,, that people  Virhd glory over bull-fights have also  the terrible distinction of having inflicted more agonies of torture and in-  -vented7moreingeniousTjnoj^s^^<!au|-  ing horrible and continued pain to  men, women and children in their  devilish Inquisition than; all other nations on the face of the earth. We  have not. been ourselves free from  baitings of bulls and bears, and cock-  fighting and other cruelties, but, thank  God, an enlightened people have swept  them away; but, if ever morals and  religion' should decay, and the ferocious fever return (as, alas, lies perilously near the surface���������witness the  execrations of the crowds at baseball  and football matches,- and the bad  blood too often displayed by the players, and also the fierce love of knockout pugilism���������we may expect that inhumanity to dumb animals will be  amongst its earliest symptoms.  The domestic animals we discipline  to our will, and that 1b right, for God  has give us the power over them. But  if they owe ua obedience, we owe them  justice and kindness; common justice  that we are so fond of always claiming for ourselves; sufficient food���������do  they always get it? Never to overtax  their strength. Is justice always meted  out to them in this matter of labor?  Do we ever see lumber loaded up on  wagons that cause the horses a constant strain beyond their strength to  pull along? When their masters lie  down and enjoy the dinner-pail, are  the horses always unharnessed and  cared for? And do they meet with  every attention in their stables in  the evening? Then, besides common  justice, they have a right to knidness,  and they value it and feel it. You can  make a horse love you like a friend.  As for a dog's attachment it is proverbial. And the cattle, we tend, if  we are kind to them, value it, and it  makes them happy. There is a wonderful pathos in the dumbness of the  lower creation. If they could talk,  would they have something to complain of? There is but one antvwer:  Conscience will have something to say  in the Day of Judgment of injustice,  unkindness and gross cruelty done to  those who could not resent, it, and  whom God had put in our power for  our use and convenience.  Not only the Bible and all good  Christians teach the laws of justice  and kindness to animals, but the noble  poetry and literature of the ultivated  heathen bring out the regard of dumb  animals for the love shown by their  masters.   In the Iliad, the.horses or  their haste do not stop to kill the  wounded birds, but iherely wrench  their wings off, and cast the poor,  maimed bodies to die in slow agony  on the water. The wretches who are  engaged in this work come at last to  take pleasure in it, and regard it as  good sport. The birds, they have been  heard to say, when their wings are  being wrenched off, 'Cry or scream  just like a child.* " The "Westminster  Gazette" writes: "Shocking is the  case of the white egretylt" is known  that the aigrette, so much,affected by  women in head decorations at the present time, is made of the slender dorsal  feathers of the small white egret, or  heron, and that these- feathers form  the bird's nuptial ornament, being acquired at the pairing time, and shed  when the breeding is over. The bird  inhabits heronies, and it is in the  breeding season that they are sougni  out by the feather hunters. It is then,  too, that their anxiety for the safety  of their young makes them fearless  of the gunners, the instinct of self-  preservation being over-mastered by  the love of their offspring. As they  hover in a white cloud over the heads  of Jthe hunters, they are shot down  without trouble; and when the /fair  ornamental feathers (and it. takes hundreds to make one ounce weight) have  been plucked from each bird, the car-  icasses are thrown down in a heap to  fester-in the rain, arid the fledgings  (think of that, you mothers) are left  to starve and die in their nests."  Birds of Paradise and many other  beautiful species are rapidly dying out,  as are some of the smaller fur-produc-  Achilles are made to weep tears for j in8 animals, annually giving up their  their master's loss; and in the Odyssey beautiful<  harmelss  lives  to  provide  the aged hound alone 7 recognizes  Ulysses after his wanderings when he  returns home; and Virgil and other  Latin poets have also feeling lines regarding the beasts that perish.

The Council have ordered another  Btory to be added to the other four  fire halls when erected. The one near-  ing completion at rear of Cedar Cottage schols is an absurd caricature  ol a flre hall the look-out tower being  Just about the height ot a very ordinary house and not high enough to see  over the school immediately in its  front.  (Continued pf rom page 1)  are actually belligerent.  There is practically no doubt but that the minority report will be the one.acted upon by the  council, and thus will close this matter, .which' has  occupied'so much of the public attention,  whieh the response was most hearty. The majority then gathered about the bandstand in the park,  from which point the addresses were delivered.  Tlie chair was taken by the Right Worshipful  Grand Master of British Columbia, Bro. Geo. J.  Grimason, who in a few well chosen words extended a hearty welcome to the visitors on behalf of  the brethren of Victoria. The first speaker was R.  W. Bro. J. WYWhiteley, Provincial Organizer.  In his opening remarks, he complimented those  present upon what he believed to be the finest-  celebration of the kind that had ever taken place  in the Orange annals of the Pacific Northwest.  He then outlined the principles of the Association.  and pointed out that it was a very necessary institution in the Dominion of Canada, lie laid particular emphasis on the loyalty of its members-,  pointing out that every Orangeman was swonrto  maintain the connection between Canada. Newfoundland,'and the Mother Country, and uphold  the integrity of the British Empire, lie referred  to the growing popularity of the order with the"  Canadian people, 1.16 new lodges having been  established in the Dominion during 19.1.0. British  Columbia had shared in this increase in membership, and had shown the largest percentage of  increase of any province in the Dominion. In  conclusion he asked those who were not members  of the order to carefully investigate the existing  conditions in the Dominion with regard to the  growing political power of the Roman Catholic  Church, and he felt sure that if they did, it would  not be long before their applications would be  handed in to become members'of the Orange Association, the only body of men existing in Canada  with the express purpose of combatting the politically aims of Roman Catholicism.  The next speaker was Rev. Dr. Fraser, pastor  of the First Presbyterian Church, Vancouver. . He  stated that the. 12th of July celebration meant  more than the display of banners and badges, and  the playing of bands. It was becoming more  fraught with significance with the passing years,  because of the events that were transpiring. He  spoke in favor of the elimination of the dual language system in the Dominion Parliament, claiming that Canadians as Britons, should speak but  one tongue, have but one flag, and stand shoulder  to shoiilder for Imperial. Unity. He'also stood for  the enactment of laws that .'would, inculcate the  spirit7of loyalty in the people from the outset of  their careers, It was time that the proper patriotic  sentiment' should be taught in the schools. He  believed in one school system only, and that the  public school. If we wish to have a united Canada, we must begin; with' the children, and the  best place, he knew of to get the children to know  and respect one another was in the public school.  He also spoke of a spirit that existed amongst a  large number of Protestants against saying anything that might be construed as narrow or intolerant. ".-He' would be the last to encourage bigotry  or intolerance; but they must remember Jhat they  had not only a religious body to deal with, but  the most colossal political organization on the'  face of the globe. When the Roman Catholic  Church stepped into the realm of civil matters,  then it was not only the privilege but also the  duty of every Protestant to protest. They must  stand firm against any special privileges for religious denominations, and if they were true to  this principle, they v. Vvdd find themselves on  many occasions protesting against the political  interference of the Papacy. In closing, he expressed himself as being in favor of the enactment  of laws that would result in the development of  the country's resources along Imperialistic lines.  The next speaker was the Very Rev. Dean  Doull, rector of Christ Church Cathedral. He  esteemed it a. pleasure to be given the opportunity  to speak, recognizing the fact that the Orange  Association was strong in numbers and influence  throughout the Avorld. Having been invited to  deliver an address, and not being a member nor  particularly well posted, he had considered it-  necessary to make some investigation with a view  to ascertaining whether the criticisms sometimes  directed at the organization were well founded or  otherwise. With that object he had procured a  copy of the.constitution, and I'roni a study of its  provisions had coine to the conclusion that, if  there were any ground for the strictures occasionally directed at Orangemen, it was due the acts  of individual members, and that the body itself,  from the basis on which it was built, could not be  responsible. *  One of the first principles of the constitution  provided that members should reverence God Almighty and His Son Jesus Christ. "We are living  in an age of apathy and indifference,. ' continued  the speaker. "We are witnessing a decline in the  reverence in which the Bible is held. If you would  do a great work for the Empire, for yoi.r homes,  your wives and family, you must remember and  govern yourselves according to the principle laid  down in the first clause of your constitution.  Whether you agree or disagree with your fellow  men, if you do this, they will be forced to acknowledge your usefulness and to thank God for. your  existence.  A second constitutional axiom, he found, was  that Orangemen were bound to love their country  and their King, to uphold the supremacy of British rule and British justice. Orangemen were required to resist menaces to those bonds which held  together the different widely separated sections of  the British Empire. One of these menaces threatened Ireland by the passage of Home Rule. While  every reasonable and intelligent person was willing to concede to Ireland that broad measure of  government necessary to allow her to handle her  own affairs all those who stood for the continued  unity of Britain would resist the move in question.  In Canada the menace was found in the influx of  a foreign population. In the face oiYthis element,  and that whieh was coming from the south of the  line, it was of the utmost importance to maintain  in every possible way British law and principles.  While giving the newcomers the benefit of the  British form of government they should be made  to abide by the- law.

Taylor, Ltd., Woodstock, Ont.  In this story Mr. R. .T. Fraser, who is  engaged on the Hydrographic Survey,  relates interesting incidents of the  eight months' stay of the party engaged in survey work in the neighborhood of Hudson's Bay and tells of an  attack upon the camp of polar bears.  He gives particulars of the fine trapping in which the party engaged and  the excellent results of this portion  of their work. The strenuous outward  journey from Fort Kelson to Winnipeg  McLean, Mrs. Reid supplies excellent reading. There is  much variety in the other stories, both  fishermen and hunters receiving due  attention, and stories and evperiences  from the far East as well as from the  far West are included. They hunt on  'horseback in .British Columbia, show-  i ing the difference in the conditions  j prevailing in that province and those  existing in Eastern and Central Canada. There is much more of interest  to every sportsman in this number.

Individuals, if there are  enough of them, make a community,  and there have "been enbugh queries  and yomplalnts from citizens who  wish to be counted in Montreal's total  "but whom the enumerators have apparently overlooked, to fornyquite a  Tespectaule village. The last addition to the evidence that Montreal,  unless some special attention is paid  to the matter immediately, will be recorded as "having a population mucli  smaller than is really the case, comes  through the discovery that a whole  ^section of St; Denis ward, numbering  some four hundred inhabitants, was  omitted from the allocations made by  the enumerators, and for, census purposes does not exist. This particular oversight can be corrected because  it has been brought to the attention  of the proper authorities, "but how  many similar blunders have there  been w"hlch have not been discovered  iBA^MJLjiQt7-berectiified?   7The day  Our Prices Si!

Small Pickings for Robbers.  The recent hold-up of a mail ttrain  in which the robfrers escaped with  the. registered mail is cited by postal  authorities here as emphasizing ~the  rarity, of losses of tlfiis  kind.    WJjile  dollars a year on this end of their  business, and as the postmaster general, after investigating nearly 400  lines, has just reported that more than  a quarter of them are underpaid, the  loss which they suffer in this connection is vastly greater than that which  arises from the depredations of would-  be imitators of Jesse James. That  this occupation offers small chance of  profit is shown by the fact that in the  past two years, according to Post  Office records, there has been in the  entire country only nine train robberies, involving the mails, and it is  said that even 4in this latest hold-up  the mail train was attacked through  mistake by bandits who- were really  after a lieavy gold shipment travelling  by express on another train,  y  "Human Cat" Never Hurt.y y  Failing^ more than a mile without  injury is the record Which has "just  been set here by a man known-.to his  fellow workers as "Nine Lives Tim"  and "*the Human Cat,'7w(ho is neither  an aeroplanist nor balloonist, but a  painter who has done his falling without the aid of any artificial means pf  support.

Only three weeks ago he fell fifty  feet from another building and his  record included twenty falls from  i^rns,_JWrty-;eIght ..from    trees,    and  Sherwin-Williams Paint ii  Made td Paint Buildings with.

The Rev. Dr. Spencer preached  morning and evening at the, Robson  Memorial Church last Sunday, at  Cedar Cottage.  Mr. Johnson, licensee of thei Junction Inn, is proposing to erect a commodious modern hotel to replace the  present small building. He is to appear before the License. Commissioners at their next meeting.  Mrs. W. Battison, or East Collingwood, and her sister, Miss Mary l^a  Franchire, have gone on a trip to Victoria and Nanainio, and purpose staying on a visit to -Mr. Frank Battison  at Nanaimo.  The by-law against blasting unless  by permit is being vigorously enforced  and at nearly every sitting of the  police court offenders are being fined.  It is somewhat strange, though, that  one can still hear sounds of blasting  going on (or going off?) on Sundays.  South'Hill Presbyterian Church held  a highly successful garden party last  Tuesday afternoon at the corner of  Fraser Avenue and Wilson Road. A  Good number of friends were present,'  and in the evening; a concert given by  Colonel Whyte and party from St.  Andrews Church was also well attended, notwithstanding the excessive  heat.  The Sunday School connected with  Robson Memorial Church held tlieir  annual picnic last Tuesday. Special  cars left for Stanley Park at 10 o'clock  and conveyed the scholars and friends  direct to the scene of enjoyment.  Favored by the glorious weather a  most jolly day was spent by both  adults and youngsters, the ladies as  usual attending to the creature comforts of the party.  There is to be a public meeting at  the Robson Memorial Church on Tues-  day evening next, at 8 p. m., when  Mrs.- Lashley Hall, of Mt. Pleasant,  is announced to lecture on "A Question of Interest to Men and Women."  It is hoped there will be a good attendance, as a discussion is to follow  the lecture. A musical programme is  to be also provided.  .The South Vancouver picnic at Central Park next Saturday promises to  be a great success. Every arrangement to promote the enjoyment pf  patrons has been made. Special cars  are to be run from various centers.  A long and promising programme of  sports has been fixed up, whilst for  those who prefer to dance beneath the  sylvan shade a band has been engaged. A big crowd with big baskets  and big appetities is anticipated.  A suitable site in Janes Road having been generously given by a friend,  it is intended to at once proceed with  the erection of an Anglican church.  Itjs.Jhe^i^rpo^^ofyhe comimttee to  commence with only a small structure.  With the rapid development of this  locality it should not, however, be  long before a permanent - building  prove necessary. The friends at Christ  Church, Georgia Street, are undertaking this mission as an extension of  their suburban work.  Bowen Island as a camping ground  possesses many attractions at this  season of the year. Among the camps  "Sing Sing" is an especial favorite  with South Vancouverites. The genial hosts, Messrs. VV. A. Goddard, F.  N. Hirst and S. A. Shrimpton, are always welcoming jolly Aveek-end parties  and their motor launch "Sing Sing" affords additional pleasure to their  guests. I^ast Saturday the following  friends enjoyed the week end at the  camp and had a most delightful time:  Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Smith, Miss B.  Bowers, Miss Dunn, Miss Goddard and  Messrs H. Arthur, L. Bragg, AV. A.  Goddard, F. N. Hirst, Ross, S. A.  Shrimpton and F A. Whitaker.  Samuel Get, a Chinaman, met with  a fatal accident at Lakeview, near  Cedar Cottage, last Wednesday afternoon, the poor man dying on the way  to the hospital from injuries received  through being struck by a tramcar on  the B. C. E. Ry. line between Lakeview  Station and Victoria Drive. At the inquest the jury returned a verdict of  accidental death. The evidence exonerated the B. C. E. Ry. and its employees from any blame, but the jury  recommended the company to authorize the South Vancouver council to  continue the sidewalk from Victoria  Drive tOk. Lakeview Station. The evidence showed that the car crew had  done all in their power to prevent  the accident and also went to prove  that it was the common practice of  the public to utilize the railway track  as a footpath, especially in the vicinity of Lakeview Station, owing to  'there being no sidewalk.  Mr. and Mrs. George Banks, . of  Agnes Road, Cedar Cottage, are staying for the summer at their recently  purchased summer quarters at Se-  chelt. Mrs. Harry Goddard, also of  Cedar Cottage', has just returned from  a short visit to them.  Mr. and Mrs. W. J.7Williams and  family/of Woodstock, One, are about  to reside at Thyme Koad, Cedar Cottage. From the Woodstock Sentinel  we gather that Air. Williams will be  a valuable acquisition to our locality,  jriaving tor the past four years.been  manager to the 'Woodstock Lumber  Co., ;vii\. Williams has come to Vancouver to accept a good position witn  bright prospects.' besides being well  Known in tlie lumber industry, Mr.  Williams has also done good service in  religious and social circles, having  been a memuer ot tlie Board of Trade,  the 'Young Liberals Club, Bowling  oitvb, Mining Club, St. Pauls Men's  Club, and also a sidesman ut St. Pauls  Oliurcn,  WoodstocK.  A "World? reporter in mentioning  the police court proceedings against  a couple of Italian offenders states:  "A policeman said that he saw them  blast a great jagged stump out ot the  ground with his own eyes." Presumably a small quantity of powder was  also used, ls this another optical delusion? It reminds me of an incident  that occurred some, two years or so  ago, when blasting was a common luxury indulged in by all aud sundry, occasionally removing the obstacle desired and more frequently removing  tne neighbors' windows or increasing  the ventilation in the roof, i On this  occasion two neighbors were sitting  in the cool of a summer evening exchanging news. It was a Monday, and  consequently washing day, and both  were busy on repairs. One lady had  been annoyed by the blasting and consequent dirt in the vicinity, causing  her washing to require taking in for  renewal, and in their exchange of mutual woes one exclaimed to the other:  ���������'We dp seem in for it, what with my  'blasted' washing and your darned  socks."  Who  A  PICNIC.  "What a happy-looking crowd!  are they?"   y       Y '��������� -7  "Oh! they are the members of the  Mt. Pleasant Methodist Sunday School  off for their annual picnic."  "Did you have a nice time?" some  one queried on-my return.  "Splendid," I replied. "In the first  place, the weather Was ideal. It was  indeed a sunny 12th of July. Then  the spot chosen for the occasion Twas  charming, and was well worth tbe  steep ascent from the improvised station. Of course one)must scale the  heights if one would breathe the pure  atmosphere of the skies and revel in  expanse of vision. So we followed,  single file, the long line of jolly personages, old and-'young (Old! No, we  were all young that day), and reached  the summit, where a picture of enchanting beauty rewarded us. In front  was a large expanse of beautiful blue  sea, with a stretch of hazy mountains  in the background, whilst around u������  were luxuriant vegetation and majestic  trees with their welcome shade. Oh,  the sweet-scented air of pine and  ozone! And all this, to be enjoyed  within a few miles of the dusty city!  For tHe'plaee isanewly^pened up site  known as Ocean Park, only an hour's  ride from the city of Vancouver.  "On this delightful spot is erected a  large tent, where a summer school is  being conducted along Chautauqua  lines; 'the first probably to be established inTBritish Columbia. We tended  our way hither, for we, like wise people, believe in combining spiritual and  intellectual pleasures with the aesthetic and social, and thus obtaining all  possible good. A large audience of  campers and picnickers assembled and  sang some well-known hymns, after  which our genial friend and able  preacher, Rev. N. Powell, gave a most  helpful and practical address upon  'The Church and the Child.' This was  followed by an eloquent, inspiring sermon from Dr. Dawson, the noted author and divine, upon the 'Evangelism  of Jesus.'  "The next item on the day's programme was luncheon under the trees,  and with the delicious viands, the  ministry of sweet-smiling ladies, the  geniality and cheery helpfulness of  our popular Sunday School superintendent and his colleagues, we certainly enjoyed the repast.  "During the afternoon various games  were heartily enjoyed, and in the  evening we received an intellectual  treat whilst listening to Dr. Dawson,  who is not only of large physique but  of large soul and intellect. His lecture  on 'Savonarola, the Prophet of Liberty,' was soul-stirring and thrilling.  "Then as the sun set in a picture of  flaming gold, we commenced the return journey home, after a most delightful day, unmarred by .aught, except by a few salutes from our old  acquaintances, the dearly-beloved mosquitoes."
