 km<mwm  ftp  SUBSCRIPTION $1 A YEAR  IN ADVANCE  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  VOLUME III  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, JUNE 30, 1911.  No. 8  Dominion Day  There has been so much excitement over the coronation this year that Dominion Day seems to have  been almost forgotten.  The whole Empire has been deeply stired with patriotic sentiment on the occasion of the crowning of  King George V, and rightly so. ; It is one of those  epoch making periods in a nation's history when loyalty is roused and we take stock, as'it were,' of our  attitude to the ruling powers and the efficiency of our  forms of government. On the present'occasion the  whole Empire rings loyal and true, and all is well.  Peace, prosperity and equity rule. But it is sometimes well to take stock of local conditions. How  do we find conditions, political, social 'and commercial, in our fair Dominion on this, her-forty-fourth anniversary ? . l     ' ���������  Commercially, all is well. Prosperity and plenty .  is the lot, of her citizens. Social conditions are fairly  satisfactory, not'entirely, we admit, and perhaps will  not be until the millennium, but we believe the social  inequality is less acute in Canada than in any other  country and is therefore a subject for - congratulation.  Politically we find ourselves faced with a crisis.  While the great mass of the citizens of Canada are  loyal to the Empire, there is still discernable among  a certain element an undercurrent of opposition, and  a distinct tendency towards independent nationalism.  L We have attained to the proud position of a nation  \\ possessed of a land rich in natural resources and peopled with a race of hardy, honest,-energetic people.  (Our object should be to maintain the high standard  of national life' peculiar to. this country and at the  ^ same time to develope the great wealth of resources to  best advantage. If we trace to its source, the power  which has most largely contributed to out success, we  will' find that it lies in the Motherland. For many  years we have drawn the best of her 'sons and large  amounts of capital. ' We have enjoyed the prestige  fand protection of her navy without the expenditure  ; of a single dollar, and may well ask the question, can  we ignore this obligation and assume an independent  ti attitude?   This is what Laurier and others of his race  '- would do.  The political situation in Canada is npt confined to  ordinary matters of policy of administration, but has '  R assumed the significance of a crisis and we are called  V upon to choose between "Imperialism and National-  ���������   ism."   Imperialism carries with it loyalty to the glorious Empire and all the autonomy of an independent  nation.  Nationalism means a severing of imperial ties and  an inevitable ultimate political absorption by our  American neighbors. It is useless to say that all that is  intended is to make closer commercial relations between two neighbors, it is the avowed purpose of our ,  cousins to the south to absorb Canada and thus get  access to our great resources for exploitation by their  1 great trusts.  If we stand by the old Empire we lose nothing in  independence and gain in power and influence with the  growth of the Empire. We continue as an important  factor in working but the great destiny of a great  race. On the other hand, so-called independence only  means subserviency to other and stronger nations with  jreidjjced[prestige,  with  the  consciousness of  having  gratifie^oiiS^vanit^^  SEWERAGE 80WM*Y  Mr. R; S. Lea, the eminent engineer and sanitary expert, is here TEroni YlVIontreal making preliminary investigations re the Greater Vancouver trunk sewerage system.  7 Mr. Lea is one of the leading engineers of the  continent, and has had an extensive experience in  hydraulic and sanitary engineering and is well  , qualified to  deal with  the great  problem now  facing him. Y  He is highly pleased with the city and speaks  very highly of its future. In his opinion the topography of the district does not preseut any great  obstacle; his greatest difficulty will be to determine the most economical system of outlets and  the method of final disposal.  Mr. Lea states that as far as he knows this  is the first city of any size in the world which has  undertaken such a gigantic task in anticipation  of its future needs, and he considers this demonic strates  a  wonderful   confidence   in her future,  Lwhich, *by the way, in his opinion, is amply justi-  ;tled.Y  ' Most of the large cities have put in their sewerage systems piecemeal and then at some Nfuture  i time in their history been forced to remodel their  whole scheme. Montreal, for instance, has about  twenty-five distinct systems, none of which will  [dove-tail into any. other. Boston tore out her old  system and installed .what is known as the metropolitan system, which cost a tremendous sum, and  so with many other cities. But when-Vancouver,  and the adjoining municipalities complete their  plans for this great trunk system-they will be able  It-to build to this plan as the needs require, with  j. the result that a permanent system will be installed at the lowest possible cost.    .  y    Mr. Lea is making a careful investigation of  , the districts affected and of the surrounding tidal  waters, ��������� with a view of determining the general  ^outline of the scheme, aftei- which hen will meet  Lwjth the engineers of the districts and give his  advice as to the information he.will require, which  will be secured in the next few months, aiid he  will then, with this data in hand, prepare his report.   He will also meet the Commission before  he leaves for the East.  Mayor Uses a  Naughty Word  Charges "Call" Editor with Being Untruthful���������  Fire Department Investigation Scene of Comedy���������Will Be Ended Next Week.  7 His Worship Mayor Taylor has acquired the habit  of making periodical attacks upon the editor of the  Western Call. At some point in nearly every civic  meeting there sounds forth the familiar phrase, "Aid.  ' MacPherson will you please take the chair," and thereupon the faithful "Robert" will solemnly march to  the sacred dias and its lawful occupant will then re-  scend to the "floor of the house" and pour forth the  vials of his wrath upon the unfortunate head of the  representative from Ward V, who happens to be also  the editor of this "sheet," as the mayor fondly calls  Penalties were  Never Enforced  The Strike  Be Seagraves Apparatus.  it.-  ��������� The latest offense of the Call was in last week's   ,  issue when brief reference was made to the disgraceful scenes at No. 5 Fire Hall.   In that paragraph' we  stated that "His Worship did  npt wish to proceed  with the examination, but on motion it was decided  to carry on the investigation in private and the press  were asked to withdraw."    After reading this clause  with due solemnity to the assembled committee and .-  auditors, His Worship took a long breath and then  poured forth a torrent of abuse on the writer.    First   ,  came this, "I wish to characterize that as a deliberate  falsehood when he wrote it."   That was supposed to  totally annihilate the obstreperous alderman, but after  a pause and a look at the smiling face of his victim,   ���������  His Worship's wrath knew no bounds, and throwing  propriety, and decorum to the winds, he brought forth  this:   "I wish to say it is a lie and a damned lie." '  On behalf of the Mayor we must apologize for this  language. . We  do not  think  His Worship  really,  meant to be naughty, but owing to his intense desire  to express himself and the limitations of his vocabulary  he was forced to use this phrase.   Unfortunately,.we  have not had the intimate acquaintance with the realm  of the damned which would enable us to fully appre-  ��������� date the significance of the term, and hence we: fwr~  the impression has not been as deep as His Worship  would like.   We are, however, a little jealous of our "  reputation as to veracity and had the aforementioned  statement been from a responsible source we should  have felt hurt, and in case there should still remain  some who take His Worship seriously, ~wt> feel it a  duty to make an explanation.  When the investigation commenced, Aid. Stevens  reserved the right, to prefer subsequent charges, and  at a recent meeting a charge was made to the effect  that women of loose character frequented some of the  Halls and that liquor was used, and practices indulged  in to the detriment of the character and discipline of  the force. A witness was called who proceeded to the  Mayor's desk to be sworn, then came a'very strong  protest froth His Worship, who stated, "that this was  carrying things too far and I object to having such  dirty things dragged up here," or words,to that effect,  and the witness remained unsworn. Chairman 'Enright referred the matter to the committee; and there  followed considerable discussion. Aid. MacMasters  ynBved Ythir"we investigate "every^charge^made,^and^  then His Worship protested against proceeding in  public and after considerable confused discussion it  was finally decided to proceed behind closed doors.  ��������� -His Worship takes particular umbrage at the suggestion that he has obstructed the investigation. All  that is necessary is to refer the public to the accounts  published in the daily press, especially the World,  of the investigation and leave them to judge for  themselves whether or no the Mayor has helped or  hindered the investigation. ~  0        OBSCENE PRACTICES.  The "World" has arrogated to itself the role  of horrified innocence and outraged dignity at  the recent exposures made at the Fire Department  investigation  re  certain  practices  at  the  halls.    It alsos condemns the  "Call"  and Aid.  Stevens for daring to bring such charges forward.  The Mayor says:   '' This man would ride to glory  on a pathway strewn with the good names of reputable citizens."   If he means by this that to expose and denounce such orgies and revels as were  indulged in at some of the fire halls of the city,  is "riding to glory on a pathway strewn with the  good names of reputable citizens," we plead guilty, and furthermore assure His Worship that we  purpose exposing such practices as long as they  .. -obtain.-7 Again, if joy-riding around the city at  midnight in civic autos, and frequenting resorts  and wine cafes, is classified as "reputable." we  plead guilty to a determination to attack such  actions  wherever possible,   and by  whomsoever  indulged in, "from the highest official to the lowest.   If condemning officials and firemen who indulge in intoxicating liquors when on duty, is an  dffence, we frankly confess our guilt sind offer no  apology for so doing.   If it is a crime to protest  against paying $6,000 more for a piece of machinery than its sworn value, we are guilty of  the crime.    If it is "dastardly" (a mayoral epithet) to object to public property being removed .  to the homes of officials, then we are everything  that isrbad.  In short, we have no apology to offer for the  stand we have taken throughout this investigation. Our sole object has been the public good,  and what we have done has been done without  fear or favor.  7 During the investigation it was shown that  Seagraves Co. had overlapped their time limit by  many weeks or months in some cases. There was  included in the contract a penalty of $5.00 per  day. In the correspondence between the Chief  and Browning, Seagraves' agent, this was frequently a subject of joking. In the meantime  other companies were ruled out because "it would  take too long to get delivery," and Seagraves  were favored. Besides this the city are cheated  ofr heavy penalty fees amounting .to over $2,000.  The following table will show how much the city  is put:  Hose Wagon and Aerial Truck���������  , Contract signed 2nd February, 1909; delivery to be within 120 days (subject to strikes and  causes beyond control), 2nd June, 1909. Aerial  truck invoiced, 15th Sept,, 1909; passed, 7th' Oct.,  1909; delay to date of passing, 127 days; penalty  $5.00 per day.  ' Hose wagon, invoicel 18th Dee., 1909; passed,  30th Dec.,' 1909; delay to date of passing, 211,  days; penalty &5.00 per day.  Two Hose Wagons and Two Chemicals���������  Contract signed 28th April, 1910; delivery to  be on or before 1st Sept., 1910 (subject to strikes  and causes beyond control). Invoiced, 16th Dec,  1910; passed, 9th Feb., 1911; delay to date of  passing, 162 days; penalty $5.00 per day.  t  ,, Referring again to the orgies indulged in at  certain halls, we ask: 'whether more harm may  accrue to'the- city from conniving at the practice,  or by exposing itt * That they have occurred fre:  quently is clearly.evidenced from the sworn testimony of at least five witnesses. That.it is not  .confined to onefhall is also certain, as practices  ��������� oi- a "similar character are known to haveYoeeur-  red at headquarters, No. 2 hall, whicii can be  proven if necessary.  While some things occurred' which for loath;  someness are unmentionable in print; it was demonstrated that the men did not descend to these  depths until after they had freely indulged in intoxicating liquors. It is also a certainty that  men partially intoxicated are not as efficient firefighters as men who are sober. It would therefore appear reasonable that any representative of  the people, who duly appreciated the responsibility of- office, should seek to expose and punish those guilty of such practices, instead of protecting them, and condemning all efforts to rectify them as "riding to glory over a pathway  strewn with the good names of reputable citi  zens.  The situation as regards the Building Trades''  strike remains practically unchanged, except that  on many smaller jobs the men are at work, but  on the larger works very little is being done.  It is rather unfortunate that when this strike  was called a definite statement had not been made  as to the, reason for it. It was stated at its in*  ception that the dispute was between an "open  or closed shop" in the carpenters' trade, but now  it is claimed that the Employers' Association are  seeking to annihilate the unions and that there*  fore it is really a contest between the unscrupulous employer and the workinjg man. %  Had this point been clearly demonstrated and  the alleged cases of discrimination been specifically proven, there is no doubt but that public  opinion would have been different, ,but as the\  case now stands the general public are at a loss  to know what attitude to assume. Many are  anxious to support all reasonable claims of the  men, but are unwilling to acquiesce to the political plots of opportunists who may be seeking to  use the- occasion to advance personal views.  There is a doubt in the mind of the public  as to the exact position, and until this is definitely cleared up there is little hope of a definite  solution'of'the question.  What we wish to know is this:  Is this a political move of Mr. Pettipiece et al,  or is it a genuine effort on the part of the union  men to defend a principle!  As to the former, we have no objection to any  man holding whatever views he may wish, hut we  do object to him working for some ulterior mo-  - tive and using as a medium his fellows under the  guise of serving their best interests.  If it i������th^ latter, then let those in charge  submit all such serious' movements to a referen-  ��������� dum vote.   If the-leaders dare not refer it to. a-.  ballot vote, where is their democracy t  In the case of the Electrical Car Workers it  was referred to- a ballot, and the result was the  - men decided against the movement., Had the  ��������� men in other'unions had the same 6p"pbHunity,  it is extremely doubtful if they would nave consented to a strike at this time, at least not until  some definite statement had been made.  HOT* ffCOft*.  We note with pleasure that Master George Mad-'  - dams, of Seventh avenue east, and a member of Strathcona School, won the medal for the highest score in  rifle shooting among the senior boys of the city schools  for the year 1910-11. His score was one to be proud  of, and the handsome medal he received will be treasured by him as the token of his first public success in  this line.  The medal was presented last week at the school by  Alderman Stevens amid a demonstration of applause  by his fellow students.  ..>"  WARD VI. 8TAND8 BY ALDERMAN closed session held, and It was neces- ther  notice.

THE HORSE'S POINT OF VIEW.  In Summer.  If a horse could talk he would have  many things to   say  .when   summer  come.s.

Y  THE SOO CANAL.  Some idea of the enormous shipping  tonnage of the Canadian Great Lakes  may be gathered from the returns ot  the traffic which passed through the  Sault Ste. Marie Canal in 1910,  amounting to 62,000,000 tons, and carried in nearly 19,000 vessels. This  waterway connects Lakes Superior  and Huron. Through the Canadian  Lock was carried thirty-six and one-  half million tons, as against twenty-  five and one-half through the United  StateB locks. The capacity of the can.  als for handling traffic is being rapidly  dvertaken, and the United States Government is constructing a fresh lock,  on the side of the St Mary River.  .^^MMNfr^HS-lHH**^^ *************^^  *      -��������� ���������'���������'������������������'  "PALL  MALL GAZETTE."

Illustrative of the unique features  of tbe great missionary exposition, the  China scene is' so designed as to convey a striking impression of a Chinese  walled town. Entering through a gate,  you find yourself in a scene typically  Chinese. On one side are shops with  their peculiar banging signs; a tea  shop where a cup of tea is served  Chinese fashion; a preaching hall and  book shop, where the missionary and  his assistants work; also a great  Dagoda, an'l a curio shop and a reception room, where the manners and  customs of social and religious life  will be shown. All the missionary  countries will be treated with equal  thoroughness. *  Another interesting feature, out of  the hundreds, will be the division devoted to a staff of medical missionaries, with realistic demonstrations of  that phase of the work.

The fact that we  all use square handkerchiefs is - due,  according to Le Caulois, to a fancy of  Queen Marie Antoinette.- Before her  "time such persons as ubed handkerchiefs were not particular as to shape;  any piece of cloth, rectangular, triangular, oval or spherical, would do, for  the Japanese usage of paper was still  unknown. The queen expressed her  preference for an exact square and on  Jan. 2, 1785, Louis XVI. published a de-'rifles' into what was left of the assail-  Janet, the village seer, read in the  stars/that a regiment was headed toward them with bloody intent.

' There was plenty of powder in town, and the scheme was put  into execution. "The man who suggested it volunteered to touch off the  fuse at the right time.

The teeth, whether temporary or  permanent, should be white or ivory in  color, without specks or discolorations,  and smooth and polished in appearance. They should be regular in outline and should each meet its opposite  in the other jaw.    .  ������   ���������   *  The health of the mouth, and, indeed, of the whole system, depends on  the cleanliness of the mouth and the  perfect soundness of the teeth.  Suppose you had a pail or garbage  can into which ~ you threw bits of  broken food, milk, and even catarrhal  excretiqns, would you use that vessel  to hold food that you had to eat, without firet washing it? I am sure you  would not.  Now think. Isn't' that precisely  what happens in regard to the mouth?  And is it not reasonable that the  mouth and teth should be cleansed before food is put into it?  The mouth is the gateway or vestibule tc the body. All food passes  through it  receive proper attention.  ditions  favoring decay.    The action  cree stating that "hereafter the length  and breadth of handkerchiefs made  in this kingdom shall be equal."  The revolution had little use for  handkerchiefs so that the law remained on the statute book. The shape of  tlie handkerchief survives as a memorial of Marie "Antoinette's tast**, and  thoe who wish so may celebrate the  cue honored and twenty-fifth anniversary of the fashion.

Tt was a beautiful moonlight- evening, not a cloud to  ba seen, and only enough breeze to  make the air pleasant. The volunteers were all in their positions, resolved to do or die for their own.  The mandate was-that no one was to  speak above a'whisper.  As the night wore on, the situation  began to have its effects on the nerves  of the defenders. The screech of an  owl, the call of a bird, the rustle of  leaves���������all ��������� these might indicate the  approach of the hostile band.  Presently there was- the sound of  hoofs on the highway? They were  "coming" rapidly���������and iirthe- minds ofthe defenders of the town the sounds  were magnified into a mighty cavalry  force.- Guns, corn-knives, clubs and  other weapons were clutched nervously. It was a.terrifying moment.  The real battle of the was was about  to qccur. 7  On riished the enemy, as if determined to ride down all opposition.  A broad sheet of flame shot up into  .the air like the pop-off of a volcano���������  the man of the mine had done "��������� his  work well. There was not a vestige  of an army left.  The defence force gathered about  the spot where the mine had been.  Things began coining down from the  sky. Among them was something  which struck the"fcarth with a mighty  thud. It was a big black mule. That's  all tliere was to Aunt Janet's dire  prophecy. '  The ?iarty laughed as the old man  concluded his tale.  > "That's a good-enough story, Uncle  Daniel," said one of the gentlemen;  "but what was there so sad about it?"  "Hit war my mule, sah!" he said.  SADDEST  EVENT  OF THE  WAR.  "It was de saddest t'ing dat happened endurin' de whole wah," remarked Uncle Daniel, an old darky,  addressing a select company of his  northern friends. He lived in Civil  War times, says a writer in the New  York Sun, in a border town of Missouri, where there was the constant  dread of invasion.    One night  As one who cons at evening o'er an album all alone,  And muses on the faces of the friends  that he has known,  So I turn the leaves of fancy, till, in  shadowy design,  I find the smiling features of an old  sweetheart  of  mine.  The lamplight seems to glimmer with  a flicker of surprise.  As I turn it low to rest me of the  dazzle in my eyes,  And I light my pipe in silence, save a  sigh that seems to yoke  Its fate with my tobacco and to vanish  with the smoke.  'Tis a fragrant retrospection���������for the  v loving" thoughts that start  Into being are like perfumes from the;  blossom of the heart';  And to dream the old dreams over is  a luxury divine���������  When my truant fancy wanders with'  '  ��������� that old sweetheart of mine.  Though I hear, beneath my study, like  a fluttering of wings,  The voices of- my children, and the  mother as Bhe sings,  I feel no twinge of conscience to deny"  , me any theme  When care has cast her anchor in the  harbor of my dream.  '���������  In fact, to speak in earnest, I believe  it adds a charm  To spice the good a trifle with a little  dust of harm���������  For I find an extra flavor in Memory's  mellow wine  That makes me drink the deeper to  that old sweetheart of mine.  A face ot lily-beauty, with a form of  airy grace,  Gloats out of my tobacco as the genii  from the vase;  And I thrill beneath the glances of a  pair of azure eyes  As glowing as the summer and as tender as the skies.  I can see the pink sunbonnet and the  little checkered dress  She wore when first I kissed her and  she" answered" the caress.  With the written declaration that "as  surely as the vine  Grew round the stump," she loved me  ���������that old sweetheart of mine."  And again I feel, the pressure of her  slender little hand, <'"'  As we used to, talk together of the  \      future we had planned���������  When I should  be a poet, .i and .with  , nothing eise to do  But write the tender verses that she  set music to;  When  Ave  should  live  together in  a  little cosy cot  Hid in a nest of roses, with a fairy  garden spot.

One of the first lessons in personal  cleanliness a child''should be taught  should be to keep his mouth clean and  to gargle. All children love to brush  the teeth and gargle and fuss with  water;  Brush the teeth up and down, not  potato with rotten ones touching it om  every side and expect it to remain  sound as to expect wisdom teeth not  to decay under tlie usual conditions  they are subject to.  If the teeth of your child overlap or  are very crooked, decay will surely  supervene. Take him to a dentist and  have these faults corrected.

You would consider it an unpardonable sin against cleanliness to put the  food into -dirty dishes, and rightly so.  A dirty mouth may be more harmful,  and are not mouths dirty when they  are never washed out? Let us face  the question and we must say yes.  indispensable  adjunct   to   health he  Decaying teeth are the great cause  qf diseased and dirty mouths. 1 think  I am safe in saying that more than  15 per cent of the people in a community have unsound teeth, and as a  consequence many suffer more or less  from catarrh of the throat. This state  of things.is deplorable and dangerous.  It ls preventable and should be remedied because every person with decayed teeth breatheB out contagion and  is a menace to the health of otherB.  *   *  "���������  To have a clean, healthy mouth one  must have clean, sound teeth.  There .is an amazing indifference to  the state of the teeth among the great  majority of the people. Indeed it is  only during "teething time," when a  convulsion- may be imminent, that  parents as a rule think of the children's teeth at all. If the temporary  teeth are decayed they do not worry���������  the permanent teeth will come in their  place. If there is toothache'they use  home'remdieE, and that is the end of  it. Dentists' will tell you that they  are rarely consulted in regard to pre-  brush across the teeth at first, as you  or to treat them and save them.  Never was a greater mistake in judgment. The temporary teeth of  children should be most carefully  watched. The mouths should be  rinsed and the throat gargled at least  twice a day with a solution of salt  and soda, half teaspoonful of each to  a pint of water. Then the teeth  should be brushed with a small brush  using moderately cold water only.  Should there appear any sign of decay the child should be taken to a  dentist at once-for__lreatment. In-  deed it is a wise precaution to take  the children to a dentist twice a year  to be sure that the teeth are healthy  and that..there are no mal-positions to  be corrected. The temporary teeth  should be preserved whole and healthy  until the permanent teeth push them  out. When a temporary tooth thus  remains it keeps the way open for the  permanent tooth, which pushes up  straight and beautiful into its proper  place. When tha temporary tooth  decays or is pulled before timeyhe  gum around and over the socket contracts and hardens, the socket itself  is diminished in size.and the result  often is that the permanent tooth is  deflected or comes in sideways. Had  the temporary tooth remained it would  have acted as a wedge conducing to  It will be a tittle awkward at first, ��������� would confer an inestimable benefit oa  his patient and render a great service  to the community.  but will soon become quite easy. This  vertical or up and down motion allows  the bristles' to sweep the particles of  food out of the grooves and from between the teeth. You should not  brush acros the teeth at first, as> you  do not get the food particles dislodged in this way. To finish up, a  cross brushing does good, but for removing accretions use the vertical  method-- Let me give a parallel. If  you want to sweep the dust out of  cracks in the floor you sweep along  the crack, not across it.  Adults  should  use  a  brush  small  enough to go between the   back  wisdom  tooth and  tbe cheek.

If the teeth are coated with, a sticky  ent tooth.  '���������������**.  So let me earnestly counsel you,  parents, to care for the "temporary  teeth. Just as prevention is better  than cure in disease, so keeping the  teeth clean and sound is infinitely better than treating them after decay sets  in. Moreover, even the permanent  teeth may be decayed before you are  aware of it if you do not preserve the  temporary teeth. :.. The first permanent molar or back tooth comes from  the age of 6% to 8 years. This tooth  is often allowed to decay under the  impression that it.-, is a temporary  tooth and that it doesn't matter. If you  count from the center front tooth  backward/the sixth(tpoth is a permanent tooth. If the tooth next to it  ���������that is the fifth tooth���������is decayed,  the decay will attack the sixth tooth  and one of the permanent teeth will  be lost.

Howland called a great public  meeting in Fitzhugh Hall, Rochester,  where to an audience of 3000 people  he delivered a remarkable address,  "The Twentieth Century Hatchet."  The paragraphs which follow are a  part of that address.  My subject this afternoon is the  "Twentieth Century Hatchet." It was  a company of hatchet-swingers who  fired the hearts of our fathers and  struck the first blow for American  Iudependence.  God in the Hatchet.  The point I make, verified by the  history of the world, is that, in certain great emergencies, when other  and more peaceable means have failed, God recognizes, approves and employs the hatchet idea to accomplish  His work.  Call the roll of the Lord's avengers.   Who is that standing head and  shoulders above them���������that Hercules  of the olden time?  vineayb, etao taoi taoin taoi  taoinn  That is one of the world's first fanatics. He was a teetotaler from girth  by Divine direction.  That giant among the company of  the Lord's avengers���������who is he? That  is Samson, the son of Matioah. who  for the want of a handy hatch ot. slew  a thousand joint keepers with the  jaw bone of an ass.  When law failed to compel respect  for the rights of their neighbors, God  raised up a man of strength, who took  the law in his own hands, and brought  the judgment of Heaven upon the  home-destroyers, who had burned his  wife and her father's house with fire.  Hatchet number one!  And that rugged, determined-looking  old man, the central figure of that  remarkable group of which we speak;  that first of God's mighty prophets  in the old time; that wild, shaggy-  haired fanatic with scanty garb - and  sheepskin cloak? That is Elijah, who  without due process of law, erected,  a gibbet by the brook at Mount Car-  mel and lynched 450 of Baal's prophets  in a night.   Hatchet number two! -���������  "Who is this that cometh from Edom  with, dyed garments from Bozrah?  This that is gloriouB in his apparel;,  traveling in the greatness of- his  strength?" This is he of whom it is  wrft1"T������- "jFor I looked and there was  rone to help, and I wondered~that  there was none to uphold. Therefore  nine own arm brought salvation, and  my fury upheld me. And I will tread  f'?wn their people in mine anger, and  Iring down their strength to tbe  <>-rth."  This is he, who, going up to his  Father's house at the hour of the  morniri' sacrifice, found the outer  court covered with pens for sheep,  goats and cattle; listened to the pandemonium of sounds as the bleating  sheeping and lowing oxen mingled  with the hucksters who shouted the  worth of their wares; found the priests  themselves exacting exorbitant  charges for doves of the humble  women who came for purification from  all parts of the country; patent ovens  offered for sale tor the passover  lamb; peddless with wine, oil and salt  adding to the din. Foney changers  had set up their tables within the  sacred precinct of the Temple itself,  and strangers who were obliged to  change their Roman, Greek or Eastern  money for the currency of the Temple  were swindled by the exorbitant rates  of exchange.  The priests and temple police winked at this open violation of the law.  Thieves divided their plunder with  the men who were sworn to suppress  them. "Therefore mine own arm  brought salvation and my fury upheld  me." Hot with indignation at this  monstruous desecration of his Father's  habitation, animated by a consuming  zeal for his Father's glory and by his  lov.e for justice, he took the law in his  own hands; he became officer, judge  and jury; he did not wait for a court'  decision on the question of compensation, but hastily tying together a  scourge of cords, he advanced upon  the offenders, and, by actual personal  violence, he drove forth the sellers  of cattle, overthrew the tables of the  money changers and the seats of them  that sold doves, saying:  "It is written, my house shall be  called a house of prayer; but ye have  made it a den of thieves."  Jesus recognized, exercised and dignified that right.   And ���������  When the Lord calls up Earth's  heroes,  To stand before His face,  Full many a name that's known to  fame .  Shall ring from that high place!  And out of a grave in Kansas,  At the just God's command,  Shall  a  woman   rise,  with   fearless eyes  And a hatchet in her hand!     i  This is she of whom it is written  "The wicked flee when no man pur-  sueth"���������it was a woman with a hatchet that was after tbem!  And if the patriots of 1773 were  justified in spilling the tea into Boston Bay, and if old John Brown deserves to be honored in his destruction  of lawful property at Harper's Ferry,  I have not one word of condemnation  for "Mother De-ter-mi- Nation," for  startling all creation in assailing by  personal violence an iniquity a thousand times more indefensible, destructive, oppressive and damnable than  the throne of King George or the traffic in human flesh ever dared to be?  Not a lawBreaker.  For in doing this she assailed an  unlawful and prohibited institution.  She violated no law. The saloon had  no more right in the state of Kansas  than thieves had in the Temple at  Jerusalem. They have no more right  than a contagious disease to ravage  the people. They have only such rights  under the Constitution of the state of  Kansas as the smallpox, or yellow  fever���������the right to be suppressed by  any public officer by any possible  means within the law, or by the citizens themselves when their lives, liberties and happiness are put in jeopardy through failure of the officers to  execute .the law.  This doctrine might not stand the  test of the courts���������it may not be good  law, but it has the endorsement of experience and is good common sense.  If the police department of Rochester  failed to enforce the muzzling ordin-  once recently passed by the common  council, and mad dogs multiplied on  the highways of this city, every father,  husband and brother would carry a  gun. And when a state passes a  law,by popular vote muzzling the  saloons, and they continue to scatter  moral hydrophobia and physical degeneracy among the youth and fathers  of the community, every mother, wife  and sister ought to carry a hatchet.  "For Such a Time as This."  This was the situation that sent'" a  Kansas woman to her knees before  the .throne of God. The foul demon  of rum had laid the husband of her  youth in the grave. Year after year  she saw the bloody trail of this wild  beast as it desolated homes and  broke the hearts of her sisters in open  violation of the laws and Constitution  of the state. Like the psalmist of old,  "out of the depths" she cried unto the  Lord.  This we know���������she prayed oil night  and, she expected an answer, and this  woman, testifies that the answer  came:  "Go down to Kiowa and smash up  those saloons and I will be with thee.  There shall no harm come, to thee."  At three o'clock in the morning  the start was made on the twenty-  mile journey, with a good selection of  stones in the hold of tbe carriage, a  hatchet under tbe seat, a determined,  fearless, consecrated woman on tbe  box. The rest of the story is known  on two continents. It has awakened  more interest and inspired more public discussion and accomplished more  good than any single act in the history  of the temperance movement since  Noah planted a vineyard on the hillside of Ararat. Beginning at Kiowa  she smashed from Wichita to Topeka  and r with more smashing to be done  she will live to die a natural death,  and the children of this generation  will sing: "But her sour goes marching on."  "Judge not  the  working of  her  brain;  And of her heart thous canst not  see;  In God's pure sight may only be  A scar, brought from some well  worn felld,  Where   thou   wouldst   only   faint  and yield."  That homely, ancient, awkward, ridiculous implement swept the strbng-  .hold of the enemy as the hornets  scattered the heathen at the approach  of the old general who captured the  walled city with the horns of a ram.  The sound of that hachet swept the  state of Kansas like an electric shock.  It awakened a conscience that has  compelled the enforcement of the  law, it has removed the stain of perjury from the hearts of public officers  in a hundred communities, it has  bombarded the state capitol and secured nevr^ legislation that will make  easy the continued enforcement of  the law and in my opinion it will destroy the political party that will covenant with the devil to compromise  with the saloon; for Kansas has yet  to learn the lesson that she cannot  crystallize a righteous public sentiment into a constitutional amendment  and make it work by training with a  party that is in bondage to the saloon.  We will never succeed in smashing  the saloons of this country until we  smash the party idolatry that hitches  a prayer meeting to a brewery to elect  a candidate or party that is on friendly terms with the saloon.  ************************** ************.,H^i******.i****  * *  t  ?  ������  *  ?

CONVENTION  The 28th Annual Convention of the  Woman's Christian Temperance  Union was held in the Congregational  ***9*9*9*****t>************* **************************  Church, Pandora street, Victoria, commencing on Tuesday 20 inst, concluding on 23rd inst. There was a  large delegation of more than one  hundred present. The opening service was conducted by Mrs. Rashley  Hall, of Vancouver, who spoke very  earnestly and helpfully of the certainty of getting help and inspiration  in the battle against evil. The chief  business  following' was. the reading erend Mr.  Osterhout, of Vancouver;  the cleanliness, order that obtain are  most noticeable. We cannot speak  too highly of the humane, Christion  treatment which the six inmates and  babies receive. The president ot the  board of this home is Mrs. David  Spencer, one of Victoria's most be-j  loved ladies. A project in hand is the  equipment of a room in the W. C. T. U.  home by the Mt. Pleasant Union,  which room will be named after this  energetic society.    ,  The new Men's Mission in Victoria  is a decided improvement upon the  old and is proving a great boon to  men who flock there in greater numbers than can be accommodated.  The election of officers resulted in  the re-election of the able president,  Mrs. Spofford.  The memorial service, conducted  by Mrs. Watson, of Vancouver, was  quite impressive. The convention  sermon was given by Mrs. Lashley  Hall, whose subject was, "Loyalty to  the King of Kings."  During the sessions several veterans  of the moral war were introduced,  amongst them being the Reverend Dr.  Reed and Mr. Frost Many eloquent  addresses were given to the assembly  also by Reverend Mr. Holling, of Victoria; Reverend Mr. Henderson, Rev-  of reports, which elicited great interest and in some cases very earnest  discussion.

The children were all very fond of  pples, cooked in various ways, and the  mother was always _glad    when she  could get good apples, since many delicious and digestible desserts could be  prepared from them for the little folks.  "Bird's-nest Pudding'/was one of ese  prime favorites. ' To  make  this  the  mother selected six large and rather  tart apples, pared and cored them, and  filled the centre with sugar and a very  little cinnamon, and then placed tbem  in  a  large   baking   dish.    She   then  boiled one cupful of pearl tapioca in  board, covered with little paths of  gravel and thick green moss which  represented grass. Tiny trees and  flowers were placed over the grass  and a small round mirror was imbedded in it to represent a little lake. It  was altogether a very pretty idea. A  considerable sum of money was realized at this fair and was put in a bank  by one of the fathers to be used at  Christmas time to buy a tree -and some  presents for a children's hospital.

She  poured all this over and around the apples in the baking dish and baked in  the oven until the apples were very  tender. This puding is good served  either hot or cold, with a little cream  on it. " ������������������_..- ������������������ ������������������y..:...���������'���������;,- 7  "Jellied Apples" the children were  also very fond of, and io prepare .these  the mother took about a dozen.tart apples and sliced them very thin. She  placed a layer of these in a pudding  dish and sprinkled over them some  brown sugar and a little cinnamon,  then another layer of apples with sugar and cinnamon, and so on until the  dish was full..,'. She then poured over it  all a cupful of water. She laid a buttered plate over the top of this and  cooked it slowly for three hoursY.- It  was then put in a cold place and, just  before it was served, turned out into a  glass dish. Whipped cream may be  piled around the jellied apples, but this  mikes it rather top rich for young  children, and a little top milk served  with it  ispreferable.  A very pretty apple dessert, called  "Apple Snow," she made as follows:  Two apples were reduced to pulp and  pressed through a sieve. A little sugar and vanilla or other flavoring were  added. The whites of two eggs were  beaten to a stiff froth, the apple pulp  was also beaten to a stiff froth, and  the eggs then whsiked with it until the  combination resembled a stiff snow.- It  made a very pretty, dessert.  T6 keep the children busy and happy  when out of school and in stormy  weather their * mother proposed ��������� that  they should make as^many articles as  possible' and then have a little fair.  All the children in the neighborhood  were invited to assist, and for the  next "two-weeks every child'was busy.  One of the older brothers had a class  in carpentry for the little boys; and  taught them how to make dolls' furniture and many other little things. They  also did some very pretty work .with a  scroll saw. One' Saturday afternoon  they had their fair in a large back yard  cf one of the houses. The mothers and  older sisters had baked some cakes  and made some candy, so that they  might have a refreshment table. They  had a Punch and Judy show, which  was worked by one of the older boys;  a fish pond was another attraction,  the children fishing for small articles  done up in paper,and placed behind a  screen; some one stood behind the  screen and fastened the things to the  lineTthat was thrown over the screen  i'y^ttey^giier/^j^They had a^ flower-  booth, wher^^afiy^trrTGe~YHowerB"  shown had been-raised by the various  little people themselves, as nearly,all  of tbem had their.little gardens; they  even sold a few vegetables which'they  had raised.-'One. bf the most popular  tables was the dolls' table, where  dolls', clothing made by the little girls  and '-furniture made by the boys could  be bought. One of the greatest attractions was a small moss cottago which  one of the elder sisters had made. It  was a tiny affair, cut from stiff cardboard, with a slanting roof and shutters that stood half-way open. Pasted  all over the cardboard was gray and  green moss that had been scraped off  rocks and trees. The house stood on  a board as large as an ordinary broad-  ^^mHmM^^������^^4^~M^*H^Wi������W*������K'*  4^������H������H^H^-M^^K*4^^^^������l"M-iMi'  covered. Washing tan shoes with warm  sweet, milk now and then will prevent  them from turning so dark. The same  directions for cleaning tan shoes may  be applied to tan-leather suitcases  More room may be made to a closet  for such things as shortwaists and  children's wash dresses by following  this plan: ( Place small screweyes on  opposite walls, near the ceiling. To  one screweye fasten a stout cord; on  the. cord place several curtain rings;  then pass the cord through the other  screweye, making at the end a loop to  be slipped over a hook within easy  reach. When the shirtwaists or little  dresses are to be put-away, first pass  a safety pin through the neckband of  the garment; next take the loop off the  hook, so as to lower the cord above  you until you can reach a curtain ring  and slip the samety pin into the hole  of the ring; finally, replace the loop on  the hook, and the clean garment will  be suspended in the unused space at  the top of tbe closet until needed.  Put. left-over berries in a glass jar  and then set the jar away in the refrigerator, as Ihe fruit will keep in better condition than if left in an open  dish. Screw the cover on, to make  the jar air tight.,  Dust sifting through linen furniture-  covers during the summer may be prevented from doing much damage in  this way: Put under the linen some  thin Canton flannel, nap side up, and it  will catch so much of the dust that the  furniture will need comparatively little brushing in the autumn.  Try a little lemon and salt mixed the  next time "a price mark sticgs to the  bottom of china dishes or bric-a-brac.  A large pinch of salt put in the tank  of a coal-oil lamp will cause it to give  a better light.  tans  > A  |     Photographic  I Supplies I  I New stock of Cameras, Papers and  Chemicals at the  DRUG STORE  (LePatourel & McRae)  I Cor. 7th Ave. & Main St. Phone: Fairmont 565  ���������i������.;i.t..{.iti.t..ii.tii}.4..M"l"l"t"I"l"l"t"S"!"t"!"l"H *^***********************^ \  EXPERT TEACHER of Violin, Mandolin, Guitar, Banjo, Authoharp and  Zither.

Don't handle me more than is necessary.  Don't put into my mouth, to stop, me  from crying, an old piece of rubber to  suck. It is about the worst habit I  can get into.  Don't let any relatives see me.  Don't take me up, strain me to your  breaBt, walk the floor with me, dance  before me like a wild Indian, shaking  a horrible rattle, or talk gibberish to  me when I have a crying spell.- There  may be something serious the matter  with me, but this isn't going to help.  When I push away my bottle, don't  force me to feed. I know when it is  necessary for me to eat anythingr  Don't,take me to that circus, prayer  meeting, or to spend the day at the  seashore.- I-am not-so-old .or. so, foolproof as you are.  Don't kiss me. Take someone of  your own size.  Don't show your anxiety about me  when in my presence. I haven't any  too much confidence in myself.  Don't be too proud of my unnatural  brightness. It may be a form of degeneracy.  Don't tell anybody that I am only a  little animal. Let them guess it for  themselves.  Don't take my temperature or send  for the doctor on the slightest provocation.  Don't let the light strike my eyes.  Don't rock me to sleep. Remember  that the hand that rocks the cradle is  ruled by the baby.  t  *  t  I  I  x  x  !  t  f  ***************************  **************************  %  le Reliable Sheet Metal forks  3127Westminster Rd.

MONTREAL���������June  27���������That   summer frosts, the bane of the fanner and  orchardist, would son become a thing  of the past if the trees of the Dominion continue to disappear as'rapidly  as they have of late and that Canada  in not many years from now- will be  renowned for her semi-tropical products as she is today for her timber,  are two rather startling and interesting announcements made by climato-  logical experts who have been comparing notes on the weather during the  annual convention of the    American  Climatolagical Association held here.  This does not mean that the juicy  "fameuse" apple, known to all as being just about   the   most   Bucculent  edible the Province of Quebec produces,  will  be  supplanted  by Jamacian  yams, nor that Montreal melons will  be superseded In their glory by Florida oranges, but it does mean  that  there Is a change coming over Canada's climate.   One of the reasons given is that the thinning out of our forests makes the air lesB stagnant, .that  the snow melts more rapidly, and that  the thermometer rises earlier than in  the old days when piles of snow might  have been seen In the woods while  the fields were bare and dry.   On the  other hand, it was pointed out, deforestation tends to drought, as the snow  then all melts quickly causing a flood  with no reserve of moisture.  ,BEMOANING THE PAST.  The fact that there ls a climatic  reciprocity between Canada and the  Uniteda States, by virtue of which the  latter export their heat waves to us,  Canada providing them with cold feet  in the winter in return, was a\tio alluded to despite the fact that the organization is non-political and there was  nobody present to urge legislation for  or against the exchange. Dr. A. D.  Blackader of Montreal was elected  president of the association, the first  Canadian to receive such on honor.  The organization is composed mostly  of Government weather propheths and  soothsayers stationed in all parts of  the continent, the gentlemen from  whom the newspapers receive the forecasts of the days' doings amongst the  stars.  It is not unusual to meet people who  are always bemoaning the past. There  are many such who spare more energy  in thinking what they ought to have  done, and chiding themselves for not  having done it, than iii thinking what  they ought to. do, and planning how  to do it.  Life is really too short for this sort  of thing; there is too much to be  achieved in the present and in, the  future to justify continuous dwelling  on unimproved opportunities in the  past. H is always in order and in  time to turn over a new leaf���������tp begin  again, to make stepping-stones of the  sins and errors and mistakes of the  past, remembering them only, so much  and so long as to learn how to avoid  and overcome them in the future.  "Oh, if I could live my life over  again," says one, "how differently I  would act." But you cannot live it  over again. The only thing you can  do is to-live to-day as well as you can,  to straighten your lines of action, and  see that they all point upward, away  from the wrong, toward the right.' Time  spent in mere idle regret 1b worse  than wasted.  The atmosphere of regret ls debilitating, enervating, asphyxiating. It  should be avoided by us as we would  avoid malarial atmospheres and those  saturated with infection; A. great purpose will lift one out of regrets, and  failing a great purpose, many:! smaller  ones will accomplish the same end. In  such, a world as this there is always  enough affirmative, positive good to  be done to occupy all one's time and  thought, all one's capacity of doing  and willing.���������Selected.  ************************** *******99*****J************  * ������*��������� a  ��������� I   ' r������        PHI*  X  Plumbing and GasBtBng  / -    4*  ���������       O  o  Careful Attention Given to all Work   |  JOBBING A SPECIALTY.

It a man has gone swimming is he'  still food for the census roan? Many  people in Montreal have already etart-  ��������� ed oft on their summer vacations, their  I houses are closed and there is no way  of the census   enumerator   obtaining  tbe information he requires.   But that  does not matter.   If a man is wandering where the surf beats, or whipping  a stream tor-trout, or even attending  the Coronation he is still a Canadian'  and his head to be counted with his  less fortunate neighbor.   How to count  him?.;  That is the question.    Census  enumerators here have written for instructions.    If  they  cannot  find  out  from the neighbors a special report is  to be made out and an attempt made  to tag the, delinquent when he returns.  Most of the enumerators report swift  progress with their returns.    Most of  the enumerators report swift progress  with their Avork, although one poor fellow had the misfortunerto be taken for  a rent  collector.    A tumble down  a  long pair of  tenement stairs  and  a  bucket of jyatej^on his prostrate form  as he lay on the sidewalk ~was~all the  answer he received to his list of questions.

OF  THE   BURSILL  INSTITUTE &  LIBRARY AT COLLINGWOOD E  On Friday evening, June 23rd, the  Bursill Institute and Library, situated  on the Roger Road, Collingwood, was  the scene o fone of the most important  and  interesting occasions  of  a  district's life when  the keys of the  beautiful  building,  which  has    been  built by public-spirited citizens of the  district, were handed   over   to    the  trustees  and  the  building    formally  opened for the public use.   The building, was  finely  decorated  with flags  and bunting as   well   as    numerous  curios.     These   will   be   the   nucleus  of what we hope will be a very flne  museum.   The chairman, Rev. Merton  Smith, in his opening remarks said it  was a sign of good omen to see so  many  present at  such short notice,  and reminded them that they were the  centre of the great   city   and -they  should be glad they had such a public-spirited citizen as Mr. Bursill ln  their midst who had given them his  large collection of books and curios.  He hoped that the young people particularly would take advantage of the  library..   Mr.  Appleby,  who had    so  kindly taken charge of the work on  the building,; in handing over the keys  to the trustees,,said it had given him  very great, pleasure to be able to.do  his  part towards the work, and  he  would always be ready to assist it in  the future.    Mr. Cleveland, speaking  for himself and the other trustee, Rev.  Merton Smith, thanked them for the  keys -and said one of the reasons he  had excepted the trusteeship was .the  great work a library could do for the  rising generation, who will be the men  and women of tomorrow.   He hoped  that they' would take full advantage  of the.opportunity presented to them.  After the Rev. W. T. Johnson, rector of St. John's, had offered prayers,  and the National Anthem sung, Mrs.  De.  B.  Farris formally declared  the  .building opened to the   public'   and  hoped,. that if   possible   the   council  would make an annual grant towards  the running expenses.    If not, then  that    some    public-spirited    citizens  would contribute sufficient to do so.  She requested to be allowed .the-loan  of the first book, which was promptly  given her.

Carter Cot-,  ton, enclosing donation and regretting |  his inability to be present, hoping the  library would be a great success and  of..use to the people of the district.  The chairman stated there was  about |2,000 necessary to raiBe, and  hoped that all those present would  give as liberally as:, possible. - After  the. committee had been around the  room, he reported that the sum of  |150 had been promised and asked  them to get their friends to assist in  tbe good cause. During the collection  Mr. Fletcher favored with a banjo  solo, and Mr. Hind with another song.  Rev. T. W. Johnson moved a hearty  vote of thanks to all those who so  kindly assisted in the entertainment,  after which Mr. Brouf, principal of  the Vancouver High School, gave a  short address, remarking tbat libraries  were of great assistance to the teachers of public schools.  Mr. Bursill gave the modern rendering, of the old nursery rhyme, "The  House That Jack Built" "Auld Lang  Syne" was sung and the audience  went home well pleased with their  evening's entertainment. The building will seat some 200 people comfortably and is finely finished up with a  small stage so that it can be used for  concerts and entertainments. Mr. F.  L Raw^en wired the building without  any charge to the trustees. Several  others gave their time and labor, and  it is hoped that those who have not  yet contributed will do so as soon as  possible. It is hoped.in the near future to! have a gymnasium in connec  Good  IS A  LUXURY-  but a luxury >within the  reach of every one.
