Array /  ^eo;isiative Ass  AUb 12 191  TORlA, 5  SUBSCRIPTION $1 A YEAR  IN ADVANCE  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  VOLUME in  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, AUGUST 11, 1911.  No. 14  FOREIGN ELEMENT  ['' A perusal of the Canadian criminal records will  ijeveal to the student of criminology this startling,  pet that a very targe percentage of ".crimes ...are  .ommitted by "foreigners,"   among   whom the  (ftalian is conspicuous for crimes of blood, or as  Ft is termed, "against the person."  I, This week.we must record the shooting on Main  [street of one man to death and a second being  mortally wounded.    This is simply another se-ri-  lous   crime   added  to  numerous   preceding ones  Union g the local 'Italian residents.   A charaeteris-  tic feature of nearly all these crimes is the extreme  difficulty the  authorities have "in   getting  Icvidence which will lead to the arrest and conviction'of the perpetrators, even the victims and  witnesses refuse to give any assistance.    There  teems'"to'be. a dread* of the 'Black Hand" and  JU  baneful  influence.    This  nefarious organization exercises such a powerful influence over the  iUinds of the local Italian'colony that none can  }fi found-who wiil assist the police to eradicate it.  jo effort or expense should be spared to effect  pe arrest of tlie  guilty parties  and  the most  jvere sentence ought to be imposed.  The system of colonizing these foreigners also  Inds itself to tlie propagation of crime. Almost  ^variably these crimes are perpetrated in the  Jeartiof the ������������������ colony and this increases tho diffi-  tilty of detection, as well as providing causes  br'ffie;frequent rows. If it were possible to scat-  lr these colonies and also impose severe penal*  )|es for carrying concealed weapons it might tend  lessen the number of the crimes. It is a prob-  fni which must be dealt with and the sooner the  fetter fpr the safety of the community.  WHERE CANADA GETS HER CAPITAL  Statistics  Which   Are  Conclusive ��������� Reciprocity  a   Political   Move ��������� Some  American   Views.  UNANSWERABLE STATISTICS.  |*SomeApetty, spiteful pastern .iournals^np^-.ro"���������  Eicnig over the fact that Vancouver has at last  lacked a point where advancement has ceased,  V:'least so they blatantly remark. We are not  pare of any "slump" and.can proudly point to  Rerring statistics to confirm ns in the opinion  Lat the 'much talked of reactionary conditions do  l)t exist. ���������������������������;  [Although''.-Vancouver is reputed to be only half  (b size of Seattle, our bank clearings for last -  F?ek were over one-half million dollars over those  J the Sound city. They were greater than St.  liil. Portland. JDeuver, Indianapolis. Washing-  m,' I), p., and many other, large American cities.  key came very close to those great business cents' Milwaukee. Omaha and .Buffalo. The incase over the corresponding period of last year  [over 28 per cent., which is the largest increase  lanv ofthe great cities of the American eontin-  ' Tacoma, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco,  lo'kane and other'coast cities report a decrease  ��������� from nine to over thjrty per cent., while Ave in  |ii_ cou^ePsfio^^  h)ur customs clerings are almost three times  |(.at they were two years ������go and readied the  Klsoiiie figure, of ^624,881 for the month of  tne. Shipping tonnage has almost doubled, and  lildiug permits are about 30 per cent, over cor-  fponding period last year.  In every branch of, trade we Can show a sub-  Antial increase with no sign of abatement, and  |U some of our jealous eastern cities will croak.  [Vancouver citizens have just reason to be  l>ud of Ihe substantial growth.of our city and  l\\](\ keep these figures in mind when they meet  "knocker"���������they   are   unanswerable   argu-  liit.  The supporters of reciprocity are loudly declaiming against what they term the."flag waving  taetics" of the Tories and are seeking^to delude  the voter by saying the Reciprocity pact is a "business proposition" and has nothing; to do w ith  patriotism. Well, we will examine it f rom that  standpoint. 7 '���������'������.. 7  In ordinary business circles i t is c ustomary  to give a preference to. the party, from whom the  greatest favors or advantages can be obtained.  This does not n ecessarily mean that others must  be "cut out," but simply that preference be given  in response to valuable commercial or financial  assistance. For instance, a'retailer will give a  larger patronage to the -wholesaler who will give  him the best t erms or who will oblige him when  money is tight. Or a merchant will patronize a  bank which will advance him the greatest line of .-  credit;'etc; Now ..when Canada looksi aboutfor  some new departure in her fiscal policy it is natural to ask who is our bestyjustomer, -or from  whom do we get t he greatest assist<incef  Up to the present Canada has received, for investment, from Great Britain, the enormous sum  of $1,860,000,000, or nearly two billion dollars.  From the United States we '.'have received a total  of $417,143,000. being about 22% per cent;-<>f  the  amount received from Great Britain. These figuresT,  are exceedingly significant and must be taken into  consideration when discussing this question.   London is the great clearinghouse of the wTorkl and  from London there is constantly flowing a stream  of gold for investment in various;.parts7of the  Globe.   Canada's great need is Capital to develop  , Uer jiclynatural resources, bujt7 hiow^canv^e ex^7  pect British Capital to flow into tliis country if"  we deliberately give a p reference to a ^country  which' is Britain's greatest rival for. our trade?  Then, again, in the year ending March 31. 1911;,  Canada imported from the United States. $284.-  .935,000 worth of goods. This was an increase of  27 per cent over the previous year, while our exports to the United States only increased two per  cent. Now then, here we have a customer whose  purchases from us only increases two p er cent.,  while our purchases from them increased 27,per  cent., asking us to enter into a reciprocity trade  relation... If the United States popple are sincere  in-their expressions why have they not shown it  by cultivating in some degree our trade? Hitherto the only value Canada-held .in their-eyes is as  ��������� a.."good market for the finished article and a desirable source of supply of cheap raw materials.  Now the condition of onr trade relation with  Great Britain" is exactly the reverse of that of  America. We sell to 'Britain about two and .on'e-'  "JudfT:im^~7is~~h^^^^  addition we borrow from her over four times the,  amount we do f rom America. So. if-we were to  look at this question from a strictly "business"  standpoint, we are forced to admit that Britain  'has7extensive claims upon its, while the United  States are under deep obligations to us.  It would-be interesting at t his point to quote  some eminent American views: James J. Hill,  that great'transportation magnate, said, when the  United,States Senate ratified the Bill: "The eoun-  stry (United States) has profited more by what  the agreement has prevented than by what it-has  y gained, The good it will bring is only a siiia I!  consideration. What would have happened if we  '���������-.had riot passed the treaty? That is the great  question. There would have been a r evival of a  move for Imperial Federation, and if we had refused to trade with the best customer we have  for our manufacturers, we should have been sorry ;  for it in years to come." This great financier arid  transportation expert saw that great trade tendencies were inevitably leading towards closer  imperial trade relations and this' would mean  greater activity in the "East and West" trade  Y.-rorites,while his great object and policy has been  Yfor vears to divert the trade routes "North and ...  ySouth.^ ..'- -    ��������� ";'7Y. ':':7':''  Y    In an editorial in the "Buffalo Evening News"  ,7wcs, read:   "It is not only good business policy  7- (for America) to pass the Bill," but it is good politics.   Everyone with eyes open can see that from  Y the standpoint of the politician and judged by the  severest Rules of the Game, the President is un-  [���������-. sin-passed in his felicity of choice of time to lay  77xlown the reciprocity7ultimatum,"   Wha$ isYmeaut y  7 by7 "choice of time'*?   Simply thisy-at the last  ;77geneiral7"elections'-;tiie'--I)empcratie' Party were re-  tijriied-on a policy of tariff revision and a:7whoier  sjile; redaction of rates.   Taft, like a wise states- 7  7 -#stit.saw what! wasTthe wish^of the public and an- ,  ticip'ated  the  Democratic  Congress  by .opehing  negotiations with Canada for reciprocity, thnshe  has outflanked the Democrats, and while the Re-  .-.-,   publican policy (of which he was champion), of  high tariff has been repudiated by the7people, he.  has been able to introduce and successfully carry  a measure Avhich will satisfy the���������public demands,  without sacrificing his party' policy.   There is no  doubt but that this move of Mr. Taft/s was'actu-  ���������-ated0by political motives pure and simple.    Mr.  Taft is now able to say (that is if Canada passes0  the Bill).    "I have done more for you than the  Democrats.    They purposed reducing the tariff  without any 'adequate'returns, but look what I  have  done, I have reduced  the  tariff on  those-  things which we badly need for oui* manufacturers  and received in return a reduction of Canadian  tariff  on  finished  articles."    It  is  one  of  the  cleverest moves in modern political history.  The obvious thing for Canada to do is to take  their cue from the clever tactics of Mr. Taft and  " simply" sit^gh^  tion of the American  tariff by the  Democratic  Congress.   Why should we allow ourselves to be  used as a tool in the hands of Mr. Taft to assist:  him to repair the shattered fortunes of his party'/  DEATH OF PROMINENT BUSINESS  MAN.  The. wide circle of friends of Mr.  R. H. Diike were shocked to hear o������  his death on Wednesday last.  Mr. Duke had been ill only a few  days. On Monday he underwent an  operation for appendicitis from which  he   never   rallied.

In British Columbia we have not been blessed with any great mileage of trunk roads aud the public will appreciate .  the efforts of the government to improve our  roadways. Several important trunk roads are  under construction this year and large suras of  "money will be spent in this way.  A new country such as British Columbia ean-  uot become settled and developed unless the settler is enabled to'-get to and from the centres of  population. Then again, as an inducement to settlement tourist traffic by auto is a most important factor, so that every dollar spent in making  good roads will bring returns in many different  ways.  There is, however, a vast difference between a.  cheap turnpike road and a first-class road, well  "-made and kept in repair.   The scientific American in an editorial on this subject has the following to say .-  "Chief among the qualities of a good road is  that of durability, and durability can be assured  only by first-class work in construction and by  ceaseless vigilance in maintaining the road in  perfect condition. It goes.without saying that  the highways of America, considered as a whole,  are not to be compared with those of the older  European, countries. After a motor ear.tour  through Europe, the returning American beco es  painfully aware of the fact that in this most important matter, his country, even if we allow; for  its comparative youthfulness, is many decades  behind that stage of development to which its  wealth and enterprise should have carried it long  ago.  "The fundamental requirements of a good  road are an ample foundation and good drainage. Without these, the most carefully leveled  -.aiid smoothly rolled top surface is nothing more  than a delusion and a snare. Furthermore, a road  whicii has been built with deep foundations,  good drainage, and an ample depth of suitable  top dressing���������unless it be watched and tended  with the most solicitous attention���������will go to  pieces only a little less rapidly than the cheap  product of the scraper and horse roller."  OUE VANISHING OYSTER SUPPLY.  Official Statement of Conservation Commission���������  Alarming Depletion of Resources.  **************************- ************************** **************************  AVhen  eating oysters djd y_<UL_ ever wonder  where they were grown.' The chances are even  that they came from the I'nited States. liast year  Canada paid out over ipHM.OUO for foreign-grown  oysters that she could have easily produced herself. In addition to this, the consumer had to pay  over .+4'U>00 duty on them. Although the natural  conditions for growing oysters in the Maritime  Province are excellent, the annual production has  been steadily decreasing. iu 1S.S_. then1 were  ti4.(i4(j barrels harvested, while in lf)07 the production was only '21,'IW barrels. This decrease  has taken .place in Ihe face..of an increase, in price  of 240 percent, in. the'past twenty years, which,  needless to say, has greatly.stimulated the efforls  of the fishermen.  AVe may well ask why Canada is commit ting the  economic blunder of importing a product-'that she  could produce.herself:'   Tbe reason, iii this case, is  that a. dispute over jurisdiction betAveen the Dominion  and   Provincial. (.'Jove.rnmenls has left the  iisheniien  in such  a slate of uncertainty that   he  does not '-are Jo invest his capital in the artificial-..1  cultivation   of oysters.    The  experience  of other  countries  goes to show  that   tlie oyster  industry'  -can only he put  on ;i  permanent''basis'by means  of oyster farms maintained by private individuals.  Indeed, in the I'nited States *l<UHIo.O00 worth of  the $1S.U00.()i>0 worth of oysters produced annually is" derived' from private culture.    As the jurisdictional dispute now-stands as a result of u'decision by the Imperial" Privy Council in ISiJN.the  Provinces own the foreshore ou which the oysters  are grown, while the-Dominion  has the  right to  impose reguiativereslrictions such as close seasons  and the kind  of fishing gear that  may be used.  which could virtually render the privilege of the  right-to fish worthless.    By" the same decision it-  was held that both the Dominion and the Provinces  concerned had the right to tax the oyster cultur-  ist.    Unless the governments concerned can soon  arrive at a compromise, definitely settling matters  of jurisdiction so that the oyster farmer will be  enabled  to  engage  in  artificial  propagation,  tbe  oyster beds will be fished out.    I."nrestricted fishing ..stimulated by high prices will now speedily  complete  the  depletion ������������f this valuable  natural  resource unless private cultivation can,be induced.  ������ I THE WESTERN CA1J  |   HILLCREST P. 0.

YOUNG &
RELIGIOUS   HATRED.
Tlie   Intense   Bitterness   That   Divides
Isiam and  Hindooism.
It la difficult t<> express rUe eternal
and Inevitable hatred mid detestation
which have always existed between tbe
Mohammedan and tbe Hindoo in India
It is often forgotten by critics tbat the
differences net ween tbe Mohammedan's religion aud the Englishman's
are minute compared with those tbat
divide Islam and Hindooispi They of
the east take tbeir religion much more
eeriously than we of the west, and in
the eyes of Islam tbe dog of a Christian is far better than the swiue of a
Hindoo.
The Pathans of the northwestern
frontier���keen, hardy am' releutless
fighters, without education and without the wish for it���may stand as a
type of the Mohammedans. They are
kept from the throat of Hindustan
ouly by the preseuce of the British
government. If restraint were removed 'ruin the Mohammedan the
Hindoos would go down like grain before tbe sickle, and the Pathans would
turn India iuto one widespread hell.
The first to fly would be our friend
the bal)u Yet he is precisely the man
who today does all be can to make
British rule, in .India, difficulty Were
there any chance of his succeeding
agitatiou would promptly cease. Grim
indeed would be the silence of the
Bengali press about the moral delinquencies of the white man. Tbe Brahman agitator knows his Englishman
and 'Understands exactly how far he
may be trusted to go doggedly on with
his ungrateful work.
I once saw a curious instance of the
contempt in which the educated Bengali babu is held by men of bis own
blood. Toward the close of 1902 I was
traveling up to the Durbar at Delhi
and happened to be in tbe dining car
on the three foot Rajputana-Malwa
railroad. A well known rajput asked
if be might join me at dinner. I was
delighted and found him a most interesting companion. Prom first to last
nothing could exceed bis courtesy. But

CHEMICAL FOGS
TO ABOLISH WAR.
Novel Plan' Projected Here Which
May Outstrip The Hague Tribunal���
Discovery of Ingenious Method of
Living For Nothing Without Violating the Law���Wierd Crop of Hot
Weather Stories.
Montreal, Aug. 6.���That mechanically and chemically produced fogs,
to be turned loose at will, may become a more important factor than
The Hague peace tribunal in the elimination of war is the most significant
feature of the offer of a local inventor
to sell to the government u secret
process by which it is claimed fogs
can be produced whenever and wherever wanted. The. idea originated
along agricultural lines as the result
of an effort to protect growing crops
from the sun during dry periods, and
to supply them with moisture. It developed, howevor, that while the fogs
might be used to blot out the sunlight,
the moisture which they contained
would be of little or no value as a
substitute for rain. It was then that
the value in case of war ot fogs,
which could be produced at will, became apparent. The squadron of an
enemy once enveloped by one of
these artificial 'fogs would be pracii-
cally helpless ai.d at the niercy of the
torpedo boats, while even on land a
fog-bound army' would be greatly
hampered. While the process by
which the fogs are produced-has'not
yet been proven on a. large scale,-the.
possibilities are apparent and it may
be that the idea, at. first considered as
a purely defensive war measure, may
yet result in making both1 land and
naval battles impossible.        ���

About the middle of the last century salt crystals first began to gather  upon the surface of the water. Year  hy year, owing to the evaporation of  the water, the crystals became more  numerous, and then caked together  until this great roof was formed. In  1878 the water beneath this salt-  crystal roof found an underground  outlet into the Obi river. This lowered the lake's surface about three  feet, leaving that distance between  the water and the roof, and each  year this distance has been diminished by the constant addition of salt  crystals to the roof.  Many springs surround this lake.  Their water flows over the roof and  evaporates there, and thus continually adds to its thickness. After many  years the springs will probably become choked with their own deposits,  and then the whole will become cov-  ered with earth, so that a, great salt  mine will be formed���������a treasure for'  the. Siberians hundreds of years to  come.���������Scientific American.   .  A Good Opinion of Himself.  Two negroeB came up to the outskirts of a crowd where Senator Bailey  was making a campaign speech.

Spruce is one of the  species which decays quickest when  untreated, lasting only three years; if  treated jt will last twelve years,  thereby increasing its life 300 per  cent. To sum up, wood preservation  not only prolongs the life of durable  timbers,; thus decreasing their annual  consumption, but   also   permits    the  mining timbers are becoming greater,  poorer qualities of woods have to be  used and the annual cost of the upkeep of mine timbering is becoming  greater. The United States bas already reached this state and has done  much in the treatment of mine timbers; where it has been proven that  a treatment of creosote or zinc chloride deCTeasei. the destruction due to.  decay,7flre and insects, this increases  the life of the timbers and decreases  the annual cost of replacing mine timbers. Timber used in mines has on  the average a shorter life than .wood  used for any other purpose. The surroundings* in a mine are very conducive to rot, which after a period 01  three to five years caused the timber  to break, crumble and become useless.  ' Experiments have been conducted in  j. .United States mines with a row of  untreated and treated mine propes alternately    placed.      After  use' considerably reduces    the   drain  upon the more desirable kinds.  The last sailing of the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company's steamer  from Yohohama to Vancouver brought  with it a consignment of silk valued  at $150,000. The silk was consigned  to, firms in New York, and weighed altogether 3-10 tons, filling nine large  freight cars. The silk was delivered  in New York seventeen days after  leaving Yokohama. This constitutes  , a record in the rapid handling of  freight between these two points.'  A WORLD'S RECORD.

A Plan for Comfortable, Healthful and  Sleepful Nights.  One night during the hot spell of  the past summer a Toronto housekeeper came to the conclusion that  to sleep in the house through that  particular night was impossible and  out of the question. She thereupon  repaired to the back yard, where, with  a stretcher and mattress, she made  up an outdoor bed. It sounded nice,  looked comfortable, and was withal a  novelty.  Now it happened that her husband  had had a very limited experience in  camping in the north woods, but this  limited experience expanded for the  ���������occasion into a very wide experience,  and with the wisdom of a wilderness  -expert he assured his wife that for  sleeping out of doors at night a bountiful supply of bed-covering was absolutely necessary; that even in the  warmest weather the air grows sharp  and chilly before morning; and that  it would be physically most imprudent to undertake such an adventure  without adequate wraps.  And so Mrs. Hot, in wise submission to her lord, brought down two  or three substantial quilts, put her  feet into a pair of slippers and her  head into a dusting-cap, selected a  protected corner of the yard, and  closed her eyes in grateful anticipation of cool and refreshing slumbei  ���������while other people suffered and  tossed unsleepingly in stuffy chambers.  It, was the most comfortless night  of her life. The hours passed and  brought no sleep, but brought instead  an increase of super-heated misery.  She tossed and turned, and wept from  every pore���������and envied the people in  the. houses. They, at least, needed  not for prudence sake to bury themselves under bedclothes. At last,  casting prudence to the air���������there  was no wind ��������� she rose, threw the  quilts into a heap on the grass, and  .abandoning the impenetrable mattress  j betook herself to the hammock, where  she managed to spend the few remaining hours of the night in comparative  comfort. The lesson which she impressed upon her husband iu the  morning was this: that while his advice might be perfectly correct for the  north woods, it did not apply to a  city back-yard during a midsummer  hot spell.  And still, it is possible to sleep very  comfortably out-of-doors even in a  city. One must suit one's self to conditions���������that is all. But probably not  many housekeepers would care to  spend their nights in the unprotected  openness of the sky, at the mercy of  the mosquitoes, whatever might be  the advantages in the way of coolness.  A better way is suggested in an idea  that comes from the West, and that  might very well be adapted in any  town or country home. Many of the  newer houses in the east have verandahs or balconies on their upper stories; these present a j'eady-made opportunity for out-door sleeping that could  be utilized with very little trouble;  while a new house plan could be  made to include this feature at very  little expense.  This same Idea has been carried  out quite generally in Denver, the  health-city of the Colorado Rockies.  A professional man of that city was  being congratulated recently upon his  evidently fine physical condition.  "Yes," he said, "I've been sleeping  outdoors for about six months now."  "Tent?"  "Oh, no; on the porch," he explained. "Just take a cot out there nights  ���������nobody can see me from below.  Have got my wife into the habit of  it, too, and I don't know whether we  can go back inside for the winter, or  not. It seems mighty stuffy there.  [He paused.  |    "Give  me eight hours  more   fresh  'air out of the twenty-four, you under-,  fice."      .��������� ;  Right he was; bo here presented  itself a fad���������if "fad" it might be styled���������that appeared worth looking into.  The attorney was perfectly well; his  wife was perfectly well. Neither was  obliged to sleep out of doors. But  they had started in during the comparatively hot weather, and now with  cooler weather they were finding  themselves more strongly attached to  the porch bedroom than they had supposed.  Denver, of course, is a city of  porches. Its people sit out whenever  the sun shines, and fortunately there  is plenty of fresh air for all.  Denver builds its porches both on  the front and on the back of the  house. However, the back porch is  not delivered over entirely, as might  be expected, to mop and pails and  other kitchen and cleaning utensils  and debris, but is apt to be a two-  storey affair, with a railing around  the second storey, and a door opening into it, or upon it, from within.  Here is a splendid place for dusting  rugs and clothing, and for sunning  whatever at the moment requires to  be sunned. Here is a fine place to  sit and write or read, or watch the  ever-changing mountains, invisible,  perchance, from the front porch. And  here is a grand place to sleep o'  nights.  The average Denverlte, when asked if many people of the city sleep  out of doors, is apt to confine the  practice to invalids. As ia well known  the chief element in fighting tuberculosis is fresh air���������fre6h air, and pure  air, every moment. Therefore, the  invalids who are sent to Colorado  have their instructions. Many sleep  in tents, and it is not unusual to read  the advertisement in, say, a Denver  paper: "Wanted���������By man and wife,  a^ room with Bleeping porch' (and  so on).  Thus introduced, maybe, by the  weak, the sleeping porch practice is  assuredly extending , among the'  strong. Although all of four windows in a bedchamber may be wide  open, physicians declare that the tonic effect is not equal to that of sleeping, entirely without the walls. Persons who have tiled both ways agree  stand," he added.   "That means a lot  to a man shut np as I am, in an. of- with the physicians.   In consequence,.  houses are being built, with sleeping  porch especially stipulated, but destined for the use of the well, not by  the sick.  When one thinks of the hot,  sweltering summer nights passed by  the easterner in a bedchamber, no  matter how freely ventilated, one  marvels that the sleeping porch notion has not more generally spread.  One marveis that it has not been more  generally adopted, if not for health,  at least for comfort.  The sleeping porch is very easily  obtained. Any porch, sufficiently  screened from public gaze, will do.  Of course, it is better to have it elevated. The porch need be only large  enough to hold a cot; hardy persons  should not require a cot. A blanket  upon the boards will be sufficient for  the camper. Denver sleeping porcheb  vary from the ordinary railed porch,  or porch-top screened by an awning  with sides, to the porch built in and  the porch overhanging. The porch  overhanging is ah excellent style.  Where the porch is faced up, no awning, of course, is necessary, unless the  sun is apt to prove unbearable as an  early visitor; but wire screening is  fitted in, as protection against flies.  Fad or not, if the sleeping porch  movement tends to give to lawyer,  writer, clerk, "as claimed, "eight hours  more fresh air out of the twenty-  four," then hail to it. Tis something  needed.. . ���������;  Yet, of course, the sleeping porch  movement has its detractors. As one  remarked: "The trouble is, that after  you've slept out a while, then you  can't go back in."  It is entirely feasible for a person  of good constitution to pursue this  healthful plan all through the winter with good results, since the  gradual change from warm to cold  weather serves to harden the system.  The bee has a reputation for being  busy and without doubt lives up to  it, but the laying hen should also be  in the same class. She seems to be  busy all the time, and if we stop to  thinlt of it it must make her go some  to pick up stuff enough about tbe  yard to make an egg every day.  '.-.'..  RAILWAY STOCKS WIDELY  HELD.  The stock of the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company is probably the  most widely held of any American  l'oad, with the exception of the Pennsylvania, which recently reported 64,-  869 shareholders. There is considerable difficulty in learning the number  of shareholders of the Canadian railroads and in what countries the stock  is held. Sir Thomas Shaughnessy informs me that the total number of  Canadian Pacific shareholders is about  24,000, the number of Canadian  holders being 2,500. Nearly all the  four per- cent, perpetual debenture  stock and the four per cent, preference stock is held in Great Brittain.  Of the common stock, holders in  Great Britain have approximately 65  p.er cent., 15 per cent, being held on  the continent, while the remaining 20  per cent, is divided evenly between  Canada and the United States.  Grand Trunk shares are held by 54.-  200 persons, against 52,900 a year ago.  This puts the Grand Trunk second  only to.the Pennsylvania Railroad,  which has 64,869 shareholders. The  Grand Trunk has ������22,474,992 common  and ������23,173,632 preferred, and, as is  well known, the shares are almost exclusively held in England.  RISE OF THE  INSURANCE . IDfcA.  CARRIES  FOUR AND A  HALF MILLIONS OF  INSURANCE.  Mr. Rodman Wanamaker, 43 years  bid, healthy, hard working and industrious, has added another $1,000,-  000 to his life insurance. He was said  before to.be the most heavily insured  man in the world, and now he carries  a total of $4,500,000, most of it in the  large companies. Rodman Wanamaker is a son of John Wanamaker,  and vice-president of the gi'eat mercantile concern. He devotes from  ten to sixteen hours daily to business,  and his chief recreation is travelling  over the big Philadelphia store; which  trip he covers several times a day.  The quantity of ore despatched from  Cobalt during the month of June .was  over 4,000,000 lbs.; or more than 2000  tons. This is the heaviest monthly  output during the present year.  Possibly, very few people have a  distinct idea of the social revolution  brought, about by the rise of the life  assurance idea. That thrift is good  has long "been recognized, and organized thrift, with sound security for its  savings, is what life insurance meanB.  From, the viewpoint of the economist,  therefore, the system can receive nothing but commendation. Looking at  the question with the sociologist, a  rather novel situation presents itself.  The outstanding feature, in tlie growth  of this idea,, is undoubtedly that of cooperation for a common end, producing what might be called co-operative  finance. And it would probably be  the unconscious character of this cooperation that would most impress the  social investigator, for he would find  men entirely unknown to each other,  perhaps even, personal enemies, who  were, without being aware of it, contributing to a common fund to help  each other in. ueed and to support each  other's families against possible disaster. Viewed from this direction  alone,, the system must be recognized  as a gi'eat,. unifying force, which is  gradually reaching out and including  all society in its operations, resulting  iu the creation of stability, mutual  trust and social well-being.  Canada's total external trade for the  fiscal, year 1909-10, transacted with 72  countries,, reached. $693,211,221, or $92  per head, of the population.  The Pacific log scalers during June  scaled 66,000,000 feet of logs, an advance' of 6,000,000 feet on the corresponding month last year. 7  The lirgest storage warehouse docks  on. inland waters will shortly be con-'  structed at Port'"Arthur, Ontario; by  the Canadian Storage Corporation,  Limited. The docks will be 800 feet  long, and the warehouses and concrete  buildings will be seven storeys high,  and be built in two units costing $400,-  000 each. The first warehouse is to-  be started at once. <���������' '  ���������'t''H''fr'E^**X***fr^*re''tMfryvv*^^  * ���������'    "   k- " - ���������'.   . .'��������� ���������:���������������������������>-.:'��������� .'...''������������������" .'���������'���������'     '���������:',, "���������'*���������������������������  %  -       ��������� . ���������      '������������������,;'���������'������������������.-���������:������������������������������������ ' ������������������������������������ ���������-���������'-. :--:y-::,-y';-:���������.;: : -;*YYY,7..,7.7y.:.^7'77''--,77-:--':$  <  *>  *. ���������  4-    publishers we have the exclusive right to place  CANADIAN MONTHLY MAGAZINE in the hands  the citizens of Vancouver and vicinity.  of  ���������J. 0  |Y- .  t    .  *  ���������'*  %,!i  *  .'    ���������  ���������* "  *  jL  * .

FLUNKEYS TO A  BARREL  OF  OYSTERS.  One of the characters in Richard  Whiteing's book, "No. 5 John Street,"  says, "Do you know what you ought  to be? You ought to be flunkey to a  barrel of oysters. Do you know what  that is? I'll tell yer. 1 knowed a  rich man once as made a god of his  stummick, like they all do. He used  to employ a feller to amuse his oysters on their way up to town, so as  to keep 'em in good sperrits. He  fancied they lost flavor when they  was dull. The chap had to whistle  tunes to 'em all the way from Whit-  stable."  If we continue to tolerate fortune  tellers and palmists we are acting like  flunkeys to the rapid rich; I was almost saying 'rabid* rich. They do not  know what to do with their money.  They encourage palmists and * such  like parasites who prey upon the  credulous. It would not matter so  much, perhaps, if the evil ended thus  but it is not so. It is of a far deeper  and more serious import. There are  many young women who give their  dollars ,to these pickpockets. They  are pickpockets. If a person takes a  dollar from your pocket, he is punished, and a person is not less dishonest if he obtains the morby by a  trick. Is there a law against palmistry  and .fortune-telling?'. Yes! And the  punishment is imprisonment. Are the  police willing to act? Yes, if the  police commissioners will permit  them. .  FRANK RICHARDS, JP.  :S9  B. C.

To the question often asked why the  marriage ring should lie placed ou the  left hand many answers are given  Some say because the left hand is  .much less used than the right, and  iuorefore the riug is less liable to gel  broken In the British Apollo of ITS?

Voltaire's Church.  Voltaire at uo time claimed to be an  atheist in the jjenerally accepted sense  of that term. So far as can lie learned  from his own utterances and those ol  his contemporaries he was a.deist, r-  believer in Ood. but not in "revelation."  save as the revelation comes tbroti^ii  God's visible creation Voltaire built  a cluirch in Ferney.'.Switzerland, above  the door of which he-had-inscribed the  words, "Erected to God by Voltaire."  In order to show the endurance of  whicii Russian women, and Cossack  women in particular, are capable,  Mme. Kudasheff, widow of a Cossack  officer, has undertaken to ride on  horseback from Harbin to St. Petersburg, and has arrived at Moscow after  covering 6,666 miles of her long journey.  Mme. Kudasheff is thirty-six, tall  and spare, ami lias her hair cut short.  She wears a Cossack tunic, cordurory  breeches, high top-boots and a large  Cossack fur cap. Her mount is an  eight-year-old thoroughbred Mongolian  pony and has carried his mistress  splendidly without undergoing any  special training for the journey.  In an interview, Mme. Kudasheff. related that she started from Harbin in  the middle of May last year. Under  average conditions her pony covered  twelve miles an hour trotting and five  miles ambling. She only travelled in  the daytime. The greatest distance  traversed by hev in a single day was  fifty-three miles, and the shortest ten  miles.  She took with her a cavalryman's  pack, containing a change of clothes  and linen, a brush and a currycomb,  and she also carried a dagger and a  revolver. Despite the bitter cold in  Siberia, slie never wore gloves or  bashlik (woolen hood), and only once  had her hands and face been frostbitten.  "I always look after my pony myself,". Mme. Kudaslieff continued. "I  groom^,-him:���������an& Jee^hitnvyroday j^  had him re-shod, but was present  while it was being done. The Moscow  officers who have examined the pony  have testified that there is not the  slightest sign of a sore on his back.  "As was only to be expected. I had  many adventures during my ride.

Many residents feel that the  question should be left in abeyance  until the vote on annexation is taken,  which, it is expected, will occur in a  short time as the lists are about ready.  At a largely attended meeting of  ratepayers at the municipal hall last  Friday, some very strong criticism  was passed by the speakers respecting the council and its work. Resolutions were passed protesting against  the recent., assessment and asking the  Provincial Government to instruct the  -Taxation Commission to inquire into  the assessment. It was also resolved  to ask the council to declare that tht  office of assessor and chairman of the  School Board should be held by separate persons and that owing to the  general dissatisfaction expressed at  7the assessment the office of assessor  he declared vacant and a new assessor  appointed who shall devote his entire  time to the oflice. It was pointed out  that after virtually censuring the entire assessment by reducing it in its'  entirety by 20 per cent, the council  had at their next meeting raised the  *4������W*W-H"M~>^^>^~H~H*<~>K~HM> **************************  | Top Off Your  "* ���������'''���������-"-������������������'���������   '"���������    ������������������       -'"���������:.'.������������������:  Lunch  with a dish of  i  S  assessors salary to $125 a month.  cf  To Rent  "No, indeed! -my friend," I replied,  "we deal with facts, riot fads, now-a-  Bro.
