Yt  '���������-'/I  ,       ,  ���������!  .-.'il/-*.':  VOLUME in  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia,   JULY7 28,  1911.  No. 12  Tram Franchise  -The Civic Annexation Committee have been  wrestling for the past week with the proposed extension of the B. C. Electric Tram Franchise for  a period of 25 years from date of the agreement.  The present franchise of the Company expires  in 1:919 and at that time tlie city will have the  option of purchasing the system at an appraised  "valuation. It would be a huge undertaking but  if due preparation were made it is not too great  .an undertaking.  The object in negotiating at this time for an  extension of the franchise is in order to consoli-  ���������date all. the franchises of Van con vers South Vancouver and Point Grey. The latter two arc 40-  year franchises: The Company have offered to  ['reduce these to expire concurrently with the City  : franchise in 25 years from date. This is very  ���������desirable, but it is well for the citizens to consider carefully what is being given and what receiv-  fedy   ��������������������������� '   "��������� y/Y . ������������������.  r The Company are to receive the'extension of  Lthe valuable city franchise for 25 years from date.  lit is difficult to estimate the value of this, one  [thing is certain and that is that it will increase  from year to year. The company will also have  the advantage of the terms of the present franchise which are extremely liberal, except for a  few minor modifications. This means that they  lave exclusive right to the field under terms which  [it is practically impossible for any other compauy  Bto enter the field.  In return the-city will receive the-following  uoncessions from the Company:  (1) An increase of one per cent, in the percentage of gross earnings, which would  make them as follows:���������on the first one  million to a million and a half, seven per  cent, from one to two millions nine per  cent, over two millions, after 1919, ten  per cent.  (2) City fares throughout South Vancouver  and Point Crey, when same are annexed  to tlie City.  (3) City lighting and poAver rates to above  -   ...districts.. "������������������-. -   '���������  (4) Company to expend $5,000,000 within five  ..��������� years (which they would have to do iii  any case.)  (5) Use of poles in center of the streets if  such a system is used.  (6) Company agrees to move poles for the  city once free of charge.   (That is, their  ^-^^--OTCtupoles!-.Y'^^  (7) Thei Company to compensate the City for  damages caused to water pipes by electrolysis.   (They arc liable for that under  /'.      existing conditions).  (8) City to have use of one duct in case Com-  D. ' .. ������������������    pany inaugurate a conduit system.  (9) Company will revise running schedule  every five years as 'regard" rush hours.  This is what we are to receive for this valuable  ranchise.    Is it a good bargain?    That is the  [tuestion for the citizen to settle.   The whole ques-  ion will be submitted to the people if the council  gree to these terms.  The chairman of the committee has been fight-  mg hard for au arbitration clause which will make'  |t compulsory for the Company and the City to  tlibmit all question in dispute between them to au  idependent board'of-arbitration; .but the Coin-  any refuse this point. If we accept the terms of  ;he'Company without tliis clause it-means that we  nil be for the next twenty-live years'under the  Jjel of this Company.  I "And do you-tell ihe that you love the pure, the  Jeautiful. and the good'/ Then convince me of  pis��������� by-.attacking the evil and the sinful."���������  feleeted.  Thousands of men stand at street crossings with  [ipes in their mouths and with hands iu  their  tickets and say:    "I would do something if I  aly liad the  chance!"

Catholic Record,  London, Makes Sweeping  Renunciation ���������Insult  to   Protestant  Christendom ��������� Deliberate Slander on Canadian Womanhood.  We invite the careful consideration of our readers to an article which appeared iu the "Western  Catholic" of 14th inst. This paper is the official  organ of the Roman Catholic Hierarchy of this  Province and is considered an authority on all  matters which pertains to the Chnrch it represents.  The article is as follows:  *      "HOW PROTESTANTS REVERE MARRIAGE.  "Our Protestant Mends who are directing the  artillery of their eloquence against the marriage  laws of the Catholic Church should take a day  off and study how this sacred rite is venerated  in their own household. If they are thorough  in their examination we feel sure that they will  admit the accuracy of the following analysis  given by the London (Catholic) Record:  ' "A license is procured.   That is all about  which the minister feels any concetti.   The marriage ceremony is in the home and the home is  decorated with orchids, lilies of the valley, and  American Beauty roses in all their glory.   By  the   minister  a   few   words   are   spoken���������the  sweet strains of music are in the air���������there is  an  infinite  variety  of small  talk  and   much  laughter���������there is the rice and the confetti���������-  and the newspaper reporter's heart sinks within  him when he tries to describe the fairy scene  and the presents rich and rare.   Then there 1b  the honeymoon���������perchance a trip to Europe,  and the glorious sights the old world reveals  - are all absorbed���������the return home, the welcome of friends, the entrance into 'society,'  the butterfly life, the tiresome feeling of being  bound during all the yean in wedlock, THE  FLIRTING OF THE MAN, THE FLIRTING OF  . .   THE WOMAN, the consultation of the_diyorce  lawyer, the divorce court, and the plaintiff and  the respondent, the pictures of the parties and  the divorce court proceedings in the yellow  press, the dissolution of the marriage, and tbe  re-marriage ��������� progressive    polygamy,    which  smacks of barbarism'."  In the face of such a vile and slanderous attack  upon Protestant home life it is difficult to maintain  the sentiments of toleration and patience which  we feel should exist wherever possible.  In the first instance, the objection which Protestants have to the Ne Temere deeree is to the  persistent and impertinent efforts of the Romish  Hierarchy to force on a free publie the obnoxious  decrees of a foreign potentate. We, as Protestants,  have never qiiestioned the right of the Roman  Church to make what laws she pleases, so long as  those laws were confined to the administration of  her own internal affairs and not obtruded upon a  nation as a civil law.  ^^Seeondly^iwh iie4he,.nationh asJbeen,stirrexLt.oJts^  foundations-by this base attempt to wreck homes  . by the Jesuitical faction of Roman Catholicism,  we have not -attacked the rank and file of the  Church, or slandered our Catholic fellow citizens.  Our tight is against the subtle influence of the  Jesuits and the Papacy as a colossal political  machine.  Our protest isagainst the dictation by a quasi-  . religious sect of our civil laws���������against foreign  priests breaking up homes and wrecking the lives  of its members���������against the claim of the Papacy  to supremacy in matters of state in this Domin  ion���������against our civil courts being used as a tool  to carry out- the will of this foreign power���������  against the charge, that, marriages solemnized by  Protestant clergy are illegal and that those so  married are living in sin and their posterity  illegitimate. We repudiate the statement that the  result of wedlock in Protestant circles is the  "divorce court."  W7ith indignation we fling back in the teeth  of their traducers the statement that the analysis  of the Protestant household will" show the course  of wedlock to be "the tiresome feeling of being  bound during all the years in wedlock, the flirting  of the man; the flirting of the woman, the divorce  cpurt���������-remarriage, progressive polygamy���������"  This odious analysis is applied by the western  Catholic to "our Protestant friends���������who should  study their own households." And they go on to  say, "We feel sure they will admit the accuracy *  of the analysis." It is not true, but a deliberate  malicious falsehood, a maliguaut attack on the  Protestant home,' a miserable attempt to blacken  the character of Protestants in the eyes of their  Catholic fellow-citizens.  There are many divorces aud much evil in the  land and Protestants are not free from its taint,  but to make a sweeping denunciation of the whole  community because of the sin of the few is eminently unjust, to say the least.   What would the  "Western Catholic" think if we were to make a  similar analysis of criminal statistics and conclude  that because of the   predonderance   of   Roman  Catholics that therefore the whole church connection were criminal?   For instance, last year, according to the Juvenile Court report, over 22 per  cent, of the delinquents came from Roman Catho-  licihomes. .while the Roman Catholic population  constitute less than 12. per -cent, of the whole,  therefore the Roman Catholic Church is wholly  delinquent.   According to their system of reasoning, this would be true.   Again, take the Provincial criminal statistics which show that Roman  Catholic offenders made up 65 per cent, of the  whole, while the Roman Catholic population is  only about 12 per cent., therefore "we are sure  that bur Roman Catholic friends will admit the  accuracy of our analysis and conclusion" when  we say the religion of that church is wholly to  blame, etc.   These couclusioiisYare quite' as justifiable as are those of the ''Record'' in applying  the stigma of the Divorcee to all Protestant homes,  .and polygamous proclivities to Protestant womanhood and. manhood.   It is cruelly false and mis- v  leading, and the tone of malicious triumph with  which it is published is indicative of its motive.  There is one explanation for this attack by the  official organ of the Hierarchy, and it is this���������the  Papacy claims universal temporal and spiritual  power and authority. Protestant countries deny  " thiOtith#fty;^Tlie" Papaey^dare^not^opehly-and^  directly assert their claim in a Protestant country,  so are forced to all manner of' subterfuge and  intrigue in order to secure themselves, and to this  end engage constantly a horde of conniving reprehensible foreign emissaries whose sole object is-to  plant here and there seeds which,, if allowed to  flourish, they hope some day will result in the  victory of the Hierarchy. This is apparent, and  as far as we are concerned we purpose denouncing  it wherever--it-'-makes its appearance, and if the  "Western Catholic" is honest, it will "admit the  truth of this analysis."  ..������h������h������:"Kk������x~:"H^~x~:^  ���������������������������>-.'���������'. *  x-  TWO REQUESTS:  If you appreciate theu Call,'1 then get your friends |  to subscribe at $1.00 per year.

Germany seems determined to force a general European war. War clouds have been visible for the  past few years and the feverish effort made to increase armaments could have but one result, viz.,  a clash. v 7  If war does occur it is a safe conjecture that  the result would be so ruinous financially that all  concerned would suffer frightful loss. It would  cost millions of dollars daily and no nation can  long withstand such a strain as that. One thing  would result and that is the experimental knowledge of the uselessuess and folly of modern warfare and the highly possible conclusion of the  powers to agree to a general disarmament.  The public must-be taught that the health-of  the nation is its most valuable asset, and that the  maintenance of health is .of much more importance  than the treatment of disease.-���������Sir James Barr.  'at'Montreal. -  "If a man produces a book like "Vanity Fair."  he accomplishes much more than the mere presentation of a supreme work, lie gives the world a  new standpoint, a new method, a new style of  thought. He sets his mark nn his age, and what  he may do afterwards is only the same as rubbing  it in."���������Lord Roseberv. on Trackcrav.  Mection Possibility  That a-'general-,federal election is a possibility  no one can doubt, at least not if they read the  Jeading article in the "World" of Monday last.  In that article the "World" charges the "Province" with turning Grit and as being now the  official organ of the Liberal Party. When newspapers commence to "sparr" for the first plaee in  the opinions of the various political parties it is  a sure sign of an election. For months past the  '' Saturday-Sunset" has been throwing bouquets  at Sir Wilfrid, find the Liberal party, but if the  statement of the "World" be true we may ex- -,  pect some vitriolic remarks regarding this ungrateful party. Apparently the object of the  "World" is to stir up the political pot so that the  Tories will make sure of the "Province" and thus '  rid them, the "World," of a dangerous rival in  the bid for federal patronage. The "Province"  is known to be pretty independent and is not an  impossibility as a candidate for Liberal patronage, hence the alarm of the present liberal organ.  Aside from this interesting shuffle among the  press of the eity there are distinct signs of an  election. Borden and his followers arc determined not to allow this Reciprocity pact to become  law until an expression of publie opinion has been  obtained. The Government on the other hand are  'determined on one- of two courses, first, if possible to force the Bill through the House, second,  if that is impossible, to go to the people before  redistribution and thus defeat the West from, ���������  having its fair representation.  Mr. Borden asked the Government to submit  a plebiscite to the people thus removing the whole  question from the realm of party politics, this Sir  Wilfred refuses to do. Jn our opinion the suggestion of Mr. Borden is an excellent one and  should appeal very strongly to all classes. There  are many liberals who wish to support their party  but who feel they cannot support this reciprocity  pact, by this means they could be free to express  their opinions and still be true to their party, the  same applies to the Tories.  GROSS CARELESSNESS.  One of the worst cases of gross negligence which  has been brought to bur notice is that of the B. C.  Telephone Company. Last Thursday at 5:30 p.m.,  they were notified by a Mr. Harford that one of  their wires was crossed with a live B. C. Electric  wire, making a contact. Nothing was done. On  Friday noon they were again notified, as the contact was causing serious annoyance and danger  to the persons who used the phone. Still nothing  "warydbneyaml^^^ phone  wire was eaten through, thus destroying the contact and eliminating the danger.  Had a life been sacrificed we should have beheld  an inquest and all the formal enquiry and very  likely a verdict of ''accidental death.'' Wc stamp  this sort of thing criminal negligence.  '���������.*���������'  7     - -.. ,-,'  SECOND NARROWS BRIDGE.  The city, municipalities, the bridge company  and the V.

'No arithmetic has vet been written to estimate  the value of one  Smith.  good   man.' ���������Bishop   Taylor  It is clear from the attitude of the opposition  at Ottawa that the Reciprocity Bill will not be  passed this session, and a general election will  result.  "Reciprocal trade relations in natural products," says Mr. Fielding. "The -United States  must soon import foodstuffs and raw materials."  says J. J. Hill. Where is the reciprocal arrangement ."���������'���������...'���������"���������.���������.���������'���������'���������������������������. -���������M^^ar-A:A.y/.:.^r,y..^yA/.<.,.-j:f...,:^,',:j::-  J.^^  ������.v.���������,;^.������..r,w.���������,TOei',fi.vVf:������^^^ "   THE WESTERN GALL  For the Home  MOTHER'S    BAKING    POWDER  TRUST.  The proposed bread berger has  bumped up against good opposition in  these parts. It comes direct from  Mother and what mother votes along  the cooking and eating lines usually  carries. Mother say that if there is  any bread trust in Montreal she'll just  turn to ank bake a batch or sq of  those home-made ones we have all  heard so much about. A meeting of  housewives has been called to discuss the situation and to draw up a  strongly worded resolution against any  proposition which would tend to corner the staff of life. :  But there is not much danger of a  bread merger enhancing the price of  the product. The housewife cannot  make sugar, or kerosene oil, or a number of other things that make for  sweetness and light in the home, but  6he can make bread, or at least can  learn the art, for an art it certainly  is, and it would be an unmixed evil  should more of our young women be  induced, even by the processes of  commercial over-reaching, to cultivate  it. Two young college women in a  neighboring city several years ago  started in the business, having first  acquired an expert knowledge of it.  They charged twice the prices of the  regular baker's loaves and got it. What  would they care about a baker's trust  so long as there was no "gentlemen's  agreement" with the flour kings? As  long as we can have, home-made bread  there will'be nothing more than the  nightmare of the bread combine.  Good Form.  When a man calls upon a young!  woman he should send in or leave two  cards���������nane for his friend and one for  her mother. Many men leave a third  card for the master of the house.  Where there are two or three daughters with whom he 1b acquainted he  may. send in a card for each, but may  distinguish one, if he choose, saying  to the0 servant, "Please give my .card  to Miss -, and say to the other  young ladies that I should be glad to  see them."  Simple and Cool Dresses for Little  Girls.  may hi? wane n* whit������ cheescloth cut  oy a pattern.easily made. Have short  sleebes and rounded necks. Such  dresses are easy to wash and iron, requiring no starch, and are delightfully  cool in warm weather.  "The tragedies of the    world    are  spoiled babies," said    a    pastor,    in I  speaking to a congregational club not  long ago.  It is difficult to sweep before one's  doors in this matter. It is so easy to  indulge where one loves. No one realizes the difficulty of rearing an unspoiled child more than a parent, yet  no one realizes the need of discipline  as the one who has a spoiled child, or,  worseyet, who lives next door to one.  "I am sorry," said a mother of a boy  of four to the mother of a spoiled boy  of seven, "but the boys really cannot  play together after this."  By her side stood the four-year-old  with a deep cut just above his eye���������  the second time the spoiled child had  all hut destroyed an eye of the younger child.  ,The mother of the spoiled child turn-  ! ed purple with anger.  "And how are you going to accomplish this?",-she queried with sarcasm  "I will .keep my boy in our yard.  You keep your boy in yours."  Then she weakened.  "I can't do it,' she said.  "I can," said the mother of tho  younger boy.  "Then," said the other, "you can do  more than I can."  What is in store for the boy whose  mother admits that at seven he is  beyond control?  Was not the pastor right ..The  tragedies of the world are the spoiled  babies.  Editor of The Western Call, Vancouver, B.C.  Never in British Columbia history  was the famous-Battle of the Boyne  more ��������� enthusiastically celebrated than  it was at McCutcheon's Point ton July  12, 1911. The day was unusually flne  and Nature joined hands with the  Orangemen t in making it a complete  success. At an early hour the Courte-  nay brethren marched to meet Mount  Horeb brethren, thence back to Courte-  nay, and then to McCutcheon's Point,  where an excellent, programme of racing and other sports took place. Dinner was served by the ladies, who received the congratulations of the  brethren. In the afternoon speeches  were made, when a fine display of  talent was exhibited, and the Ne Temere Bill was warmly censured as a  gross insult to the Protestant clergy  as well as to civil rights and liberty,  nnd of the' disgraceful display of the  Eucharistle 'conference in Montreal.  One speaker maintained that every  church member should be an Orangeman, and every Orangeman a church  member, who was warmly applauded.  Orangemen were warned to bo, ever  watchful against the intrigues of a  suMIe foe who never wearies in the  effort to overthrow religious rights  and liberty. ��������� Speeches closed with  toasts and the National Anthem, and  every one went to their homes with  a higher opinion of the Orange order.

Sunday  School work, a public meeting was  held lastv evening, 19th inst., in the  Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church, when  inspiring, interesting and thrilling reports were given by the delegates.  Miss Roberts spoke first, with regard  to the able lectures, discussions, etc.,  upon the primary and junior work.  She had noted that great stress.was  laid upon the importance of teacher-  training. That he should be the right  person in the right place, fully interested in all matters of interest to the  young in their formative period of life.  Also the. individual aspect of the work  was greatly emphasized; that, the child  be regarded as a separate entity, arid  the personal contact of teacher with  scholar was urged. A wise suggestion  was made that instead of the terms  "boys and jjirls," "scholars," be substituted, seeing that our future  church members are important personages today. AH teachers please  note! Too much importance cannot  be attached to this department of  Sunday School work. Miss Collins  followed with her report upon .the  work of the intermediate department,  which is of supreme importance seeing that it has to do with the education and evolution of ; growth along  moral and spiritual lines at the most  critical age. .The period of adoles-  ence, a time when the boy or girl is  difficult to understand. From statistics it had been proved that 85 "per  cent, of conversions take place between the ages of 16 and 20, and these  are usually ��������� permanent. It had been  remarked frequently that at this period especially the pupils read their  teachers rather than' : their Bibles.  Several points were emphasized, such  as the need of education along the  lines of Christian citizenship and  church government. Also the educative influence of organization,- which  one of the noted leaders had denned  as the distribution of responsibilities.  Another mentioned the Sunday School  as being the Golden Gate to the Garden of the Church. If the-young;1 can  be safeguarded through this trying  period, the- future membership of the  Church of Christ is assured. It' has  been affirmed that our penitentiaries  LOCALS CROWDED  OUTCAST WEEK  SOUTH  VANCOUVER.  The Post Office authorities whilest  considering the petition for a new  post office at Knigh Road and Westminster Road have informed the promoters that the proposed name of St.  Margarets is not available. The title  of Sunnydene has now been submitted.  I  The time has now come for renewing dog licenses, and those who love  their canine friends will do well not  to hesitate to pay the small tax of  one dollar for all male, and one dollar  and fifty cents for the female dogs  wkhen tlie collector calls for it, uiiIrss  they wish to share the fate of Mr.  F. Abbot, of 37th Avenue, who refused  to pay the tax when Constable Bram-  well called for it on several occasions,  and was finally made to pay it with  costs in the police court.  Some months ago the South Vancouver Council advertised for tenders  for.water carts for road sprinkling. So  far nothing has been shown in this  direction. May I suggest that probably just now we .experience as much  dust as we are likely to meet with  and thmat summer is the time water  carts are a necessity. Perhaps meanwhile the Council might arrange .with  the B. C. E.Ry. to sprinkle along the  car tracks and it would hot be amiss  to. utilize the hydrants on the roads  to allay some of the.dust.  At present the Council have not yet  furnished the particulars of the estimates which are supposed to justify  their increase of 25 per cent taxation  on an improved assessment of over  seventeen millions  ($17,000,000.00)  We are, therefore, unable to express  a detailed opinion as to the necessity  but the general trend of public opinion is decidedly against the council's  financial policy.  To reduce the assessment by 20 per  cent and then add 25 per cent, to the  taxes is a reduction that appeals to  nobody above the intelligence of their  own Council. To the ordinary ratepayer the portion stands thus:    The  council having intimated to the assess,  are filled by street graduates not Sun- i or to assess the property at purchase  220 BROADWAY, WEST  i  DE VAZ    220 BROADWAY, WEST  day School scholars. After the singing of a sweet duet by Misses Roberts  and Collins, "The Little Church in the  Wild .Wood," which had been sung by  ten thousand voices in the great convention, bringing memories of bygone days, the Rev. Mr. Williamson,  general secretary of P.-S. S. Association, in his usual fluent manner, gave  a graphic account of convention from  first to last. He said that it was the  consensus of opinion that this convention was the greatest religious  gathering ever held in America. In  two days fifteen special trains of ten  cars each entered San Francisco, conveying some of the greatest religiqus  leaders and . enthusiastic Sunday  School workers to be found in the  world. There were fifty-nine delegates  from British Columbia and others  from thirteen of the States, making a  total of one hundred and six who rest-  ed at Shasta Springs for the Sunday  en  route for San.    Francisco,  where  over by two honored citizens of Vancouver, the chairman being our own  genial ��������� Mr. Mahon, superintendent of  Mt. Pleasant Methodist Sunday School,  and the preacher being the able  speaker, Rev. R. J. Wilson. From  Shasta Springs they proceeded on the  journey south sociably and joyously.  He was greatly impressed by the great  audience of about fifteen thousand  which gathered in the Coliseum from  day to day, a testimonp to the fact  that the interests of the unseen, the  spiritual, still appeal to humanity.  Although he deplored the fact that  only twenty thousand are really  church-goers in that densely populated  enterprising city. After the excellent  address given during convention by  Rev. R. J. Wilson, the people of San  Francisco must now be aware of the  existence ot Canada and British Columbia in particular, of which latter  province ��������� they must certainly retain  an idea when they think of the vigorous yell of our sturdy delegation. Of  the excellent speeches and wise aud  sage expressions of the gifted speakers of convention, Mr.- Williamson will  speak later on, full announcement of  which will,be given. He regretted the  absence of Mr. Stabler, who was to  report re "Adult Bible Class," but in  his absence he commented on the able  leadership of the up-to-date adult  Bible class of Mt. Pleasant Methodist  Church, which is in the front rank  of efficiency. In glowing terms he referred to the great, demonstration of  twenty-five thousand  twenty-five thousand Bibles in a great  parade through the main thoroughfares of the city to the amazement of  about fifty thousand spectators.  These   Bibles   were  It has always seemed to me a matter of opinion as to whether a carline  along a suburban business thoroughfare promotes business or not. A car  service renders the road more important in the matter of traffic, but if  customers ride by when they used to  walk it is obviously not to th interests of shop3 dependent on local  trade. Customers are but human and  it appeals to the convenience of the  many to make their purchase at either  the start or the ^finish of their journey rather than incur the delay and  extra fare of a broken trip. Anyway  the point is worthy- of consideration  as to a car line on local business  roads*.  ��������� According to a correspondent) in  the morniug paper the drummer of the  72nd Highlanders' Band chews gum.  An interesting fact if true, but how  does that correspondent know what  the drummer chews? Is he an expert or did the drummer choose to tell  him what he chews? I suppose if  one wants to look like a meditative  cow, gum is cleaner to choose to chew  than tobacco. There are some folks  I could recommend to go in for extra adhesive glue.  It id a bit rough on'--the military  though-to cite any such particular  characteristic. ������������������:...' J-  Highlanders (not the 72nd) have  been known to take snuff and representations of the gallant race are still  to be seen oh wooden pedestals outside tobacconists in England extending a box pf the sneezing mixture.  The man who plays the big drum is  a musician of very pronounced tastes  and. of a very striking personality. As  a rule he is a sociable sort as his instrument is scarcely adapted for solo  performances.; , Personally I would  prefer him as a neighbor to a man  whose ambitions spar towards a cornet and whose friends are also sore  towards it. The owner of a big drum  doesn't brag and boast of it in his  house nor. sit at home with it fooling  around asking the neighbors "Where  is my wandering boy?"   He is content  to shuffle in and out of his house in  a stealthy, modest and retiring manner as if apologising for his burden.  But once arrived he is the proudest  of all men and recognizes bis instrument as an increase to his own size.  He is a model striker and'knows when  to strike (ior the right effect and sure  that others will follow him.  He has to be smart as he has to  beat time, but is not to be commended as an example for coming in so  many times to every bar, although  even then he does not rool as do some  small drummers on their march.  :    /'���������  COTTAGERS DREW.

Owing to the public out-  body, so the Assessor was given a  public snub and his values reduced  20 per cent, all round, although as  the C. P. R. counsel contended 50 per  cent, would have been only reasonable.  With the reduction of 20 per cent, this  still left the Council with an increased assessment of over 17 millions to  tax and it is simply foling the ratepayers/to make a nominal reduction  on the assessment values and then add  25 per cent, to the rates.  Their excuse is that the increased  expenditure compels them to this  course and they do not see how it is  to be avoided.  Probably the ratepayers may show  them a solution of the problem next  January by putting matters into more  capable hands.  CEDAR   COTTAGE  The storekeepers on Cedar Cottage  Road are waxing indignant just now  with the Council and the local member thereof. Last year it was mutually agreed that the Council should  grade this road and the B. C. E. R.  would then extend their line along it  to Victoria Road and Westminster  Road. The road has.now been graded and rolled, notwithstanding protests that rocking was not necessary  if the car line is to be laid. In the  circumstances it would appear that  another route is to be selected by the  B. C. E. R. and a petition is being  submitted at once asking the Company to adhere to the Cedar Cottage  Road line.  ***~ZrZ<**<**<'**************<^  ! ARE YOU INTERESTED IN B.C.

The Editor "Western Call,"  Dear Sir: ���������  We should be very much obliged to  you if you would help us to make  known throughout British Columbia,  that all information with regard tp  EJ&den Powell Boy Scouts in this Province may be obtained from us here;  and that all Warrants and Badges  must be obtained through this office.  We are constantly hearing of district centres not knowing whom to  apply to for information, and we feel  sure that the press of British Columbia will do their best to help to organize the Boy Scouts movement in  their large province.  Y. Yours truly,  T. R. HENEAGE,  Hon. Secy.  BOYS' BRIGADE.  Among the many recent signs of enterprise and advancement made by  the congregation of St. Paul's on the  hill, Fourteenth and Burns, not the  least progressive and successful has  been the organizing of a company of  the boys' brigade. This movement  was started in .February last and since  its commencement has made rapid  and marvellous progress, and at the  inspection held in May last much was  said in praise of the splendid work  being done. The work covered by  the company reflects great credit both  on the olncers and boys and include  drill, figure marching, musical drill,  parallel bars and Bible class, while  a number of new branches of work, including a summer camp, will be added during the coming season.  Since May last the company has  been in vacation but resumes again on  Thursday, 3rd August, when a meeting of the coy will be held in the  church at 8 o'clock. At this meeting  a full programme for the year will  be arranged, and an opportunity will  be given for new members to enroll.  All boys between the ages of 12 to 17  are eligible for enrollment, and already a number of boys have expressed their intention of' Joining,  while doubtless a great many more  will take the opportunity ot affiliating  themselves with the greatest boy  movement at present In existence.  Last year was a successful one for  the Coy., but next year promises to be  even more progressive and useful.  The regular meeting of the Epworth  League, Mount Pleasant Methodist  Church, was held Monday evening.  Miss Gray, who is working among the  Indians at Port Simpson, gave a very  interesting talk on her work there.  Those present were greatly interested  and wish Miss Gray and her fellow  workers all success in their mission.  Miss Edith Bruce sang very acceptably during the evening.  Cedar Cottage Presbyterian Church  Rev. J. C. Madill, pastor. Next  Sunday the second Anniversary of this  Church will be observed. Special music  has been prepared for the occasion.  Drs. Taylor and Pidgeon of Westminster Hall will preach at 11 a.m. and  7:30 p. m., respectively.  JUNCTION JOTTINGS.  Mrs. Wells, Carolina Street, has returned after an enjoyable holiday  spent in Montreal and other Eastern  cities. "'���������'"  If you go to Cabon, the grocer at the  corner of 15th Avenue and Westminster Road, you may be prepared to  get the best values ever given for  goods of quality.  Mr. and Mrs. Mereluo and family,  corner   14th  Avenue    and    Carolina  Street,  have  gone  to  their  summer j  camp in North Vancouver.  If you want your plumbing and gas-  fitting done properly and promptly, go  to S.S. Montgomery, 3129 Westminster Road. .  We desire to draw the attention of  the city authorities to the dust on  Westminster Road and Fraser Avenue  in the vicinity of the Junction. Apart  from the inconvenience it causes the  public, it is not very creditable to our  city with its up-to-date methods. We  would suggest that the watering cart  be sent to this disrict, if only occasionally.  Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Brown and family, Scott Street, are spending the summer months at the Great Northern  Canneries.  Shoppers are quick to take advantage of goods when .offered at right  prices. You may have absolute confidence In every purchase made at  Cochrane * Elliott,'. If you trade  with' them once you will certainly go  again if price inducements and courtesy have to do with it.  We under stand the city purchasing  agent is negotiating for the purchase  ifr. C. A. Splayforth, of Victoria,  formerly of 762 12th Avenue East, Is  spending a few days in the city.  The Reliable Sheet Metal Works,  3127 Westminster Road, reports business  very good.  The Hazlett Brokerage Company,  617 15th Avenue East, have a five-  room house in a good location for  $3,200. $300 cash handles this and the  balance of the purchase price can be  arranged to suit the buyer.  Our popular resident, Air. T. A.  Morris, won first prize in the "B"  class at the matinee races of the Vancouver Amateur Driving Association  held in Hastings Park on Saturday  last with his beautifv.1 mare, "Nettie  Wilkes."'.We congratulate Mr. Morris  on his success.  The garden party given by the congregation of St. Pauls on the Hill at  Mrs. Jones' residence, Westminster  Road on Thursday last proved a brilliant success. We understand another one in connection with the  church will be held in Mount Pleasant  Park in about three weeks time.  Cochrane & Elliott's store, 15th  Avenue, was entered by burglars on  Sunday night. Entrance was gained'  at the rear of the warehouse. The  cash register was tampered with, but  fortunately all the money had been  removed the previous night. A little  damage was done to some of the stock.  This is the first case of burglary in  this district, and we hope .the police,  who have tbe case in hand, will be  able to trace the guilty parties.

When certain habits are pointed out  as a menace to society and men and  women organize to combat them, it  is frequently claimed by those who  indulge in them that those who are  opposing the practice are actuated by  narrow and selfish motives,'that each  individual has a perfect right to do as  he or she may choose.  The following arraignment of the  tobacco and liquor habits is a very  significent statement, inasihur^ as it  is written from a purely business  standpoint, being contributed to tUe  "Monetary Times" by Wm. H. Orr,  for forty-five years a manager of a  life insurance  company:  THREE   MOST   ACTIVE   ENEMIES.  The three most active enemies of  healthy life insurance in Canada are  tobacco, alcoholic liquors and tubercu  losis. The evil begins with the oc-  cosional secret smoke of a pipe or cig-  a ret by the young man. This paves  the way for heavier Indulgence, which,  though it may not. as it too often  does, lead to drink, still sets the pulse  running at consuming speed. Many  smokers are turned down by the companies, if the physician reports the  heart-beats faithfully, instead of averaging them, or "making allowance."  But when several drinks of strong  liquor per day are added, and the indulgence becomes a fixed habit, the  agent frequently loses his labor,''even  though there may be an appearance  of vigorous health, because the conscientious physician is obliged to report in a qualified tone. It is well  known that the twin evils of tobacco  and liquor, when indulged in to excess,  lead strongly toward tuberculosis,  that great white plague of all humankind. .''���������':'- '���������>?]���������$'%'  ********************���������:>***** ********":<>************<<'**  Hie PIONEER HARDWM STORE I  Screen    Doors   and   Windows  Garden Tools, Bapco Pure Paint  5tumping   Powder   and   Land  Clearing  Tools.

R. Dickson, B.S.F., Assistant Inspector of Forest Reserves) in his report,  just published, gives his impression of  the timber of that part of the country.  METHOD OF SURVEY.  The method followed was to run  inspection lines at three to six mile  intervals. The men worked singly,  running the .lines by compass, ��������� and  were able to travel from four to six  miles per day and return. to, the line.  In this way a rapid reconnaissance  was made, which was extended by the  use  of  field  glasses. ������������������,.."  -      TIMBER  OF THE  REGION.  Through the country covered by the  exuloration no timber was found at  any distance back from the water.  'Only a mere fraction or one-per cent  of the area surveyed now carries merchantable timber," the report says.  Spruce is for the most part, the  only timber there which, is large  enough for saw-timber or rairVay ties.  The poplar, birch and jack pine are  too short, spindly, limby and crooked  for anything but fuel and pulpwopd.  Practically ali the tamarack has been  killed by, insects. 'We did not find  two 'hu'Di'.reo/ green tamarack abpyt;  'cn 'hi':Uos7in .diameter all summer,-'  writes ?>[r. .Dickson. ���������������.  The total number of the ties available in the district traversed is estimated at some 3G0.00O; the saw-timber totals about nine and a half mil-,  lion feet. For pile timber dead tamaracks and the largest of the closer  grained black spruce could be used.  The possible supply of - fuelwood is  enormous, and there will also be a  Iarge>sv.pply of pulpwoou, but much of  the timber.is,as yet too small even; for  pulping.    7' .-. Y'-v ..

TBlack  spruce takes, oh the average, one hundred years tp attain a diameter of four  to five inches, and in the same period  ���������white spruce grows to a diameter of  sight  to  twelve  inches.    'I, saw-  no'  jackpih'e stand w^here thetrees aver-.  aged even six inches In.diameter,' the  author says.   The slow rates of growth  are largely due to the cold wet'soil, of  the  undrained  muskegs  which  cover  so .much of the district.  Looking for" a Home?

Fires frequently  live in the <lrv moss all-winter and  break out again in spring. ���������  The work  of  the  fires  is  supplemented by that of the bark beetles.

Meanwhile what  about the rates paid in advance in  South Vancouver for the convenience  now so summarily cancelled?

The overcrowded condition of the  Grandview and Cedar Cottage cars is  now becoming a source of public danger, not to speak of the discomfort  and inconvenience experienced by passengers between 5 and 7 p. m. every  evening. With cars crammed, to overflowing and men hanging on in the  rear, others seated on the steps present conditions are disgraceful. The  B. C. E.

Mayhew, of  Huntsville, Ont., who have been on a  visit to the Rev. J.-'C. Madill at Cedar  Cottage, have now gone to Portland,  but will return again for another  short stay in Vancouver before commencing their trip homeward.  Rev. D. J. Findlay, of St. George's  Tabernacle, Glasgow, was a passenger on the Empress of India, just arrived in port. Mr. Findlay's health  having broken down under the strain  of home and foreign mission work,  he is now on a tour round the world  to recuperate. Whilst staying here  both he and Mrs. Findlay will he entertained by the Rev. Merton Smith  at his home in Collingwood.  A milkman named "Whalley" was  fined $50 and costs by Magistrate Mc-  Artliur at South Vancouver on Friday  last Ior wilfully injecting ammonia  and blinding a dog's eye. The magistrate gave him a most severe reprimand for committing such an atrocious crime and pointed out'it was the  most serious chaarge of this nature  ever heard in his court. Inspector  Robinson, of the S. P. C. A.', instituted  the proceedings in this case.  A very successful garden party was  held on Thursday at the residence of  Mrs. J. Jones, Westminster Road by  the Ladies' Aid of St. Paul's Presbyterian Church. The lawn was gaily  decorated for the occasion with Japanese sunshades and pretty booths.  Musical selections were contributed  by Mr. A. Griffiths and Mr. Thos.  Shankin on piano and violin, and  Messrs. Menzies and Rogers also  pleased the large audience by their  excellent songs.  On Wednesday morning Cedar Cottage Presbyterian Church was specially decorated for the wedding of TJliss  Mary Huish, second daughter of .Mr.  John Hall Tuish, of North Shields,  England, to Mr. Chas. A. O. Farina, of  Newcastle-on-Tyne, TEngland. YThe  bride was escorted into the church by  Mr. J. I_. Howling wiiilst the wedding  march was being played. The' bride  was becomingly dressed in white satin  and wore a veil and wreath7ef aronge  blossoms. Miss Elizabeth Dykes, of  Newcastle-on-Tyne, acted as bridesmaid, wearing a white embroidered  dress with white lace hat and willow  plume. Both carried bouquets of  sweet peas. Mr. Geo. J. Kinnis>an  old friend, supported the groom..as  best man, and the Rev. J. C. Madill  performed the ceremony. Mr. and Mrs.  J. I.. Howling, Cedar Cottage, entertained the bridal party and numerous  guests after the ceremony. Many  handsome presents from England and  also friends here were received. The  honeymoon is to be spent at Victoria,  and on their return Mr. and Mrs. Farina will reside on 2Sth Avenue East,  SoiitbY Vancouver.  Mabel Tomkins, aged 14, is once  more missin, but as this is one of her  little peculiarities no extra special  anxiety is experienced. Doubtless she  will soon again be gathered in and  soon again wander forth once more.  For a married lady Mrs. Tomkins appears to be rather of tender years,  a.nd-as-her^husbandiXesides.atJiellingi  ham, it is considered probable she  may be journeying there. The police  understand, however, that her domestic life was not especially happy. This  young lady has previously given the  police a lot of trouble to trace, owing to her playful way of leaving her  friends so mysteriously. On one occasion she was found at Port Moody,  and on another at New Westminster.  She is a child of about 4 feet 6 inches  high and probably of less than 100  pounds in weight.  The South Vancouver Ratepayers'  annual picnic on Saturday at Cenrtal  Park was a grand success. Large  crowds, both juvenile and adult, pa-  ttronized the event, and being favored  with such a glorious day, all the  sports and outdoor amusements were  most enthusiastically enjoyed. Baseball games between the various districts, scout drill, baby shows, etc.,  together with th eband, kept matters  lively, whilst for the more ambitious  and energetic races were run. The  Reeve was successful in one race, and  literally just saved his bacon, the  prize being a ham. It is understood  it; weighed several "Pounds."  Young Peter McArthur, the proud  recipient of a cornation medal from  the King's own hand, arrived home at  Cedar Cottage on Sunday, and after  spending the day with his father,  Magistrate .1. C. McArthur, the young  fellow left for Victoria to rejoin lm  ship, H. M.'C: S. 'Rainbow." Mr. McArthur was visited last week;by his  two other sons, Mr. J. McArthur, from  Revelstoke. and Mr. Harry McArthur,  from Victoria.  A preliminary meeting to form an  association football league for South  Vancouver was held at South Hill last  Friday. '���������< Sir. Herbert W. Barritt was  elected secretary and will issue an invitation to all soccer players in the  municipality to attend a meeting to arrange plans for he coming season.  Mr. J. C. Moon, of Cedar Cottage,  has just returned from an enjoyable  three months' visit to the old country.  As manager of the Vancouver Gas  Company Mr. Moon has now tb "Allan-exceptionally busy season in providing for the needful extension of his  company's operations.  Knight Road Improvement Association held a meeting on Friday at the  home of Mr. White, secretary, corner  of Knight Road and 25th Avenue.  There was a large attendance and  much business relative to the improvement of this locality was considered.  The committee appointed to interview the B. C. E. Railway respecting  a better car service reported that they  had the definite promise of a ten  minutes service to be put on within  the coming week. A switch at Victoria Road corner of the Westminster  Road is being put in and from August  1st the new service is to "commence.  The next improvement will be for the  company to extend the service into  the city direct without the present annoyance of changing cars at Tenth  Avenue.  The plans for extending the width  of Knight Road to SO feet are progressing most favorably, but the committee are experiencing a difficulty in  tracing some of the owners of the  property. If any such will communicate with the secretary, Mr. White,  post office box '205, they will materially assist the progress of this movement.  The South Vancouver Board of  Works has promised the committee to  use their best endeavor to secure a  car line along Knight Road if widened  as proposed.  t The property owners on Cedar Cottage Road (now Commercial Street)  are also busy with a petition asking  the B. CE. Railway to adhere to their  original plan of extending the Fourth  Avenue car service along Cedar Cottage Road, as promised by the B. C. E.  Railway and the municipal council  last-year. Recently there have been  rumors of the company altering the  route to Victoria Drive, and the recent  rocking and rolling of Cedar Cottage  Road seems to discountenance the  idea that the cara.service is to be laid  along that road. We shall soon see,  however, and it is not an unknown  sign of official common sense to first  thoroughly pave and make a good  road and then tear it up for trams and.  other services. Being public property,  expense is not such a question after  all.  South Vancouver school trustees at  their last meeting awarded contracts  for the erection of two new schools to  the J. T. Herrett Construction Company.. The prices are $29,369 for the  Clough Avenue School, and $29,'934 tor  the 42nd Avenue School.  A meeting of the South Vancouver  Board of Trade is convened for Monday next, 31st inst.  The Central Ratepayers' Association will hold a most important meeting at South Hill School on Friday,  25th inst. A report is to be presented  from the committee appointed to investigate alleged irregularities in the  J__������_*-__?������ SL Ki_22LS_*������?L _TJ_IS P���������1"  ises to be of a most interesting nalure  and is awaited with much curosity by  the majority of the ratepayers. The  report is certain to provoke a good  deal of discussion and an exceptionally lively meeting is anticipated.  It is rumored that the B. C. Telephone Company contemplates building a central exchange for South  Vancouver, and the neighborhood of  the Muncip.il Hall is hinted at for its  location. There is the principal objection that our Municipal Hall is  not central. In fact, the hall is situated in about the most out of the way  position possible and it seems almost  a pity whilst building a new hall the  council did not also .select a more  convenient and accessible sit e.  SOUTH    HILL    PRESBYTERIAN  CHURCH.  The receipts from the Garden Party  given at Mrs. McCuen's home, amount.  ed to over $100.   The affair was under  the management of Mr. A. Rae. who  spared no pains.to make it a success.  The   congregation,     which    numbers  about   sixty,   meets   now  in   Staples'  Hal! on Fraser Ave. and Forty-seventh  Aye.
