VANCOUVER, British Columbia, AUGUST 18, 1911.  No. 15  THE QUEBEC NATIONALIST  r We believe that tho present is an opportune  Itiine to-utter a word of warning re the French  ���������Canadian Nationalist of Quebec.  I The French Canadian people, a^ a people, are  [bright, energetic and thrifty and capable of bc-  Icorrfing eminently useful citizens. The French  ���������Canadian under the yoke of the Jesnitical-Triest-  Ihood of the Koman Church is another creature,  (rile at once becomes a mere tool in the hands of a  jlpseudo-religious political organization. An >r-  ifcanizatiou which has been thoroughly discredited  land denounced in nearly all the Roman Catholic  leountries of Europe.    '���������  ft' We'should not be charged with being guilty of  Iwnse to the Roman (Catholic Church because we  llpnounee the, Jesuits. We are simply doing what  unillions of members of that church are doing the  lyorld over. The difficulty is that this political,  lutrigueing. insinuating society has obtruded it-  lblf to an abnormal degree into our political life,  jlnd these circumstances demand some consideration,     y"   y y  They'left. forever, the impress of their baneful  lifluence upon the new provinces of the north-  jest iu denying them the right of controlling  keir educational systems and their saddling a  J_rnicious system of separate schools upon them,  flhey openly defied Manitoba to extend her bound-  ties, aud the Papal ablegate at Ottawa dictated  lie terms; upon which the Manitoba boundaries  |uld be'enlarged. viz.. separate schools. The  'test, move of oiir Jesuitical friends was a eare-  jfil canvass of the late parliament so as to find out  rcaetly where each member stood as to the  Iftrests of their church. As a result of this cau-  l_s everv man not known to be tractable^ ftnd  Ivorable'to the intrigues of the society will be  Iposed by them with all their subtle influence,  fin our opinion? if the Jesuits were expelled from  Inada as they Yhave been frpin France, Italy,  trtngal and other countries, the two races,  iiglo-Saxon'and. French Canadian, would soon  Icome assimilated and all the raeial feelings, now  1 keen, would disappear. .We have a great ad-  Jration for our French, brethren in Quebec, but  Ir the Jesuits-and their offspring, the National-  Is. we ean ehtertain no sympathy.  The time has arrived when public men must  Cognize the necessity of overcoming the racial  eiudice between' the two races, and the eliminate, of the line- of demarcation 'between them.  |s ean best be done by combating the influence  Ihe emissaries'of a foreign potentate and by asking to implant the great broad principles ot  ftaration of church aud state, and of public  Ication,  x  hicre is a'growing-distrust in Quebec of the  \rch authorities 'because of their tactics, aud  Bi it is a desire for better educational facilities  i more progressive'municipal'systems. This  lui encouraging sign and will, we hope, result  [counteracting the influence of the -Nationalist  ***************&tt~M**fryte   *.}^***************.y^*****   ****.z~l������Z********<^.'*tt~Z^***  V  ���������  3:  Reciprocity  I The Past, The Present, The Future���������Not Question of f  Party, But of National Life.  WATERED STOCK  s  Thirty years ago this would have been fair business for Canada,, as she was '$  then viewed, and as she viewed herself, among the nations. *'  The Canada of that day, as9vieweel by herself and others, was thought to be a |  ��������� ��������� narrow fringe of territory stretching across the continent and jammed up be- |  ��������� ��������� tween the Arctic regions, which were termed "The Great Lone Land/' "The Barren J  ��������������� "Land," etc., etc., on the one hand and the United States, then supposed to contain |  <��������� practically all of North America suitable for white, men's occupation, on the other. %  \\ When the prairie provinces began to be discovered by Canada, and the C. P. |  R. teas projected by Sir John A. MacDonald, those who remember the fight against $  j������ the construction, by "The Syndicate" will remember that the opposition cry. reiterated from every platform and in every opposition journal ivas "The prairie is not  fit for a goose pasture and the road will never pay for the axle grease of its rolling  stock.  The status of the Dominion was simply'that of a "Colony," and the ambition of  ��������������� the country looked higher. - ?  Then'it was a question as to whether Canada was of much real value to herself f  if left to sfand- alone, or to Britain if she' remained, a colony of the Motherland. %  Then the youth of Canada migrated naturally to the States to find a field of en- f  ter prise with chances of success. , K  Then, with transcontinental highways not built, with British markets only  slightly developed, with prairies, ^forests, fisheries, mines, in territories containing  the present prairie provinces and New.Ontario1, and in the great territories containing the several potential provinces yet to be created, all unoccupied and undeveloped,  it seemed desirable to'secure American help and enterprise to enable the Dominion  to do something to people and develop the habitable strip she then thought she possessed.

This practice has become the greatest curse of modern commercial and  industrial life. It is the underlying cause of the  high cost of living. It is one of the reasons for  high freight rates. It is responsible for the insolvency of innumerable companies and the consequent loss to the shai'eholders.  For instance, a meat combine is to be formed.  The first step is to arrange to buy up all the  smaller companies, for which it is customary to  give stock in the new concern. But as stock is an  easy thing to issue, and requires no currency,.  very often the price paid in stock is much in advance of the actual value of the property, thus  when the merger of. perhaps, a dozen or.more  companies is accomplished, the capital of the new  concern is many times the value of its assets. The v  next step is to secure business which will pay a  reasonable per cent, on the capital, and prices are  adjusted accordingly. For instance, the assets of  the concern may be only .$100,000. while its capital is .$500,000, then to pay 7 per cent, on the  capital it is necessary to earn 35 per cent, on the  actual amount invested. Now, it may happen that  some energetic public servant inquires into the  cause of the high price of meats, he is met with  conclusive evidence that the concern is only pay- -  ing 7 per cent, on its capitalization, and reports  accordingly, and the public are lulled to sleep"  with this knowledge and bidden to seek elsewhere" "  for the reason of "high cost/'  The same  argument applies to high, freighty,  rates.   These are compiled from the amount of *  dividends required op the M capital itock," irrespective of how or where that came from.   Again,  we are reasonably safe in saying that the "capital  .stock" of most transportation companies isoften . ..  unduly inflated and as a consequence the1, public  Yc  "iMMt pay.". .Then take a mining stock. - Per-    J  haps it was sold at 30- eents for a par value of  $1.00. or on the sale of. a million shares only,$I00,-  000 is realized, gross.   If the mine turns out' well  the stock immediately goes sky-rocketing and a  demand  is made for "dividends.''    Now.  then,- .  the demand is for a*large dividend on $1,000,000, '  the capital, not on $100,000. the amount invested.  We will suppo.c it is a coa! company and that a  reasonable demand is 6 per cent, return on the  investment.    Now,  then,  the wages of the men  (whicii is the chief item in the cost of coal mining) will be adjusted so as to pay������that dividend.  TV 6 per cent, dividend on the million would pay  60 per cent, on the .$100,000, but that is not considered.    If a labor dispute arises, the adjudication is made on the basis of the capability of the  mine to pay its owners a "dividend.'' on what?  Ms "capital." not its investment.   This course of  .irgument re the curse of "watered stock" can be  extended to almost all branches of trade and industry.   It-is the source of more unjust suffering  to the workers than any other single cause and at   ,-���������  the same time creates millionaires by the hundred.  A simple remedy for all this would be to compel all companies to sell their stock for cash at  par. and to make it'compulsory for such companies to show exactly where the capital thus secured has been expended.  , We believe that all capital legitimately invested  should have ;i reasonable .return, and iiu sound,  economic objection could be made to that claim,  but it is madness to-.expect that "mother earth"  will produce dividends on "watered stock",  amounting to. many times the. value-of the actual  investment. The trust or merger spectre would  soon be shorn of its terrors were such regulations":  put into".force. Many concerns which to-day  escape because they'pay only \\. 4 or 5 per cent,  would, if������������������ properly probed, reveal a condition altogether different from that which is generally  believed lo be tbe ease.  Nature is capable of .providing for all-in prodigality if given a chance, hut we have no right to  ask for returns on something which iii itself repre-  . senls no value.  THE CAMORRA.

In the early days of tbe settlement of  New England the'custom of sending  packages by neighbors who journeyed  to different parts of the country was  an established one. The notebook of  Schoolmaster Joseph Hawley of Northampton, Mass., when be started on a  trip to Boston was tilled with such  varied items as: "Captain Partridge, a  dial and a dish kettle;" "Son Joseph,  speckled.red ribbon, whistles, buckles  and fishhooks;" "A'shilling, worth of  plumb and spice;" "Tv������ psalters, a bason and a quart pot." In "Old Paths  and Legends of the New England Border" Katberin. M. Abbott says that It  ts-as the same even'as late as Judge  Lyman's day. His daughter, M.3.  Lesley, writes of it in "Recollections of  My Mother:"  There were no expresses- then, and  Bo'when it was known In the village  of Northampton that Judge and Mrs.  Lyman were goiuy to Boston���������and they  always took pains to make it known���������  a throng of neighbors were comlug ln  the whole evening before not oiily to  take an affectionate leave, but to bring  parcels of every size and shape and  commissions "of every variety.  One came with a dress she wanted  to send to a daughter at school; one  brought patterns of dry goods, with a  request that Mrs. Lyman would purchase and br&g home dresses for a  family of five.

I scarcely knew  whether to laugh or lo cry. but in tbe  Th������ Horn* of Edam Cheoso.  The uortheni part of Holland Is the  ���������eat of the fcdam cheese industry. In  making tbe Edam cheese fresb cows'  milk is carefully stniiued and tbe rennet added. As soon as the milk curdles  the wbey is drawn off. aud the card,  thoroughly kneaded. Is pressed into  molds. This process is repeated until  the whey has all been extracted and  the curd is comparatively dry. It is  then wrapped in a linen clotb and kept  for teu or twelve days until quite solid.  Then tbe cloth is removed and the  cheese put into salt lye. Afterward, a  little more dry salt is sprinkled on the  cheese until the maker thinks it is salt  enough to insure its keeping. It is next  put into a vessel and washed witb  whey aud scraped to remove the white  crust. It is next carried into a cool  room and laid on shelves, where it is  freqnently turned. The ripening process lasts from two to three months,  the round balls growing the fine yellow  or reddish color peculiar to Edam  cheese.

Glass is a substiince that we cannot  figure the strength of as we can a  great many other things with wbicb  we are familiar. It varies greatly in  itself. The-strongest glass, as a rule,  breaks into the greatest number of  fragments. Comparing the strength of  thin glass with thi'-U. the former is relatively the stronger This is a thing  very often lost siylit of Then, again, as  to the difference "lictweeii rough plate  ind polished plate, we find polished  plate the stronger, This is perhaps to  l>e attributed to the7'fact that all these  very line surface hair cracks are polished out.

Sir:���������It is with a great deal of satisfaction one observes the. interest  now being taken, in the preservation  of a small tract of the timber standing "on what is one of the "Beauty  Spots" of Surrey Municipality. And  while possibly an unfair advantage is  sometimes taken of your courtesy in  permitting a very liberal use of your  valuable space, for the discussion of  subjects of more or tes������t publie moment, I would feel deeply grateful tor  the privilege of once more drawing  the attention of residents of the djg;  trict, and of the public generally, 10  the1 advisability: of again making a  united effort, having in view the preservation of that magnificent" natural  beauty spot (constituting as it does  tne unest natural avenue of timber  existing on the Coast) traversed'by  the _ ale Road, the main avenue of  traffic (vehicular) through the district from east to west, and incidentally the route of the great international highway, from which so much  is expected, and that is costing* so  much to make it attractive. As has  been stated before, it were wanton  and-wasteful destruction to cut tne  whole of this magnificent belt of giant  timber, as a commercial advantage,  in^view^of-the-proposal-touring-tour^  ists into the country, over this road,  when thousands of people would go  many miles tor the 'opportunity of  seeing nature as It may be seen there.  It occurs to the writer that we in British Columbia have so much of the excellent and beautiful; in nature, we  cannot appreciate our advantages or  in the slightest degree sympathize  with; those who are not so favorably  situated. 1 would ask your'readers to  imagine the length of. time it has  taken to produce that Ii rs t crop, and  what it would cost to produce another  like it; al-O, even if^they have no immediate" use   for the   preservation  of  : such a memorial for themselves, will  they for a moment consider that at  the present rate of development, in a  : very tew years* the whole or Surrey  Municipality will assume urban proportions, and then what would be the  -value.-of this land and timber, as a  public park for the inhabitants ot  South Westminster, Port Mann, Steel  fCity,   the   City, of  New   Westminster,-  ietc'. The Writer feels the time is opportune now to put torth an united  effort  for  saving  this  most  valuable  ;natural asset for the benefit of future  generations. A way can be discussed  to recoup those who are financially  interested in. the matter, ami without  doubt  it can  be  arranged  in  a  way  ������������������satisfactory to all and thus a most attractive, convenient and central recreation ground may be preserved" in  perpetuity for future generations.

It was my intention to visit Eastern  Canada when my official work was  finished at Winnipeg. But, owing to  the extreme heat in Ontario, I changed,  my plans and decided to take a careful  survey of that region of Central  Western Canada known as the North  Prairie Country. And again my plan  was changed, for I read in the paper-  that there were some reports concern-  impending danger to the town of  Frank, in Southern Alberta, from  Turtle Mountain. Some eight years  ago there was a monster slide whereby  a .mighty mass of rock fell from the  verjj steep face of that mountain.  When the mountain broke and precipitated an enormous portion of a limestone rock upon the town and valley  below, the������ people were in bed and  many of them awoke, in eternity. A  large part of Frank was destroyed,, the  line of: the Canadian Pacific Railway  was wiped out for nearly a mile and  the coal mining operations were put  ont of business for a..time. The debris  covered an area not very short of 1,000  acres, at depths of over 100 feet. Suppose there were only 600 acres covered, and put the depth at an average;  of 30 feet, we get a mass of over,  000,000 cubic feet. One cannot gmsp._  the immensity of eight hundred million  cubic feet 7And yet Inside7of a very  ���������elation to the possibility and probability in the tutu re.  the danger of another slide was not  great. Though eight years have passed  nothing of a serious nature has happened. Howeveiythere has alwa'_s>  been a wearing, and a criibhins; oL the  lace ot the standing, broken mountain  There are small masses and lrre&ulai  boulders tumbling down pretty much  all the time.

The present  crumbling process is well understood  by those who have made careful examination, and no person pretends that  there, is any serious danger from this  source.  ^���������What some people are afraid of, and  on which they foretell danger, is quite  a different matter. It is this. The  west point/or peak, of the broken  fountain, the peak nearest to Frank,  stands up bare and menacing in appearance to those who look at the enormous, towering giant, somewhat  casually, or superficially.  On climbing the west shoulder and  keeping close to the edge of the break  of eight years ago, one sees some  cracks in the back of the shoulder.  There are two of such cracks quite  visible. These, cracks are the real  cause of the reports   of - threatening  ternal explosion, by an earth tremor,  of an earthquake variety, or by a  monster slide at some distance.

The    most  would hot reach Frank, or do any se, that'could happen would be the fall of  ripus damage of any sort.   It, as the  rent shows, is very small, not the ten-  thousandth part of the former mass  which had to make its own way with-  danger.   Herein lies the cause of the.."* any Prions preparations as   to  direction.   In the case of the email  the above referred to small mass, and  perhaps a scare that would cause much  excitement for a day or two and a lot  of wild newspaper reports.

This is one of three especial Mountain slides which I might refer to���������  one in Norway, one in Japan, and one  in Frank, Alberta. They all differ,  and yet have many points of similarity.

Calls After a Recepeion.���������Will you  kindly tell me if a call is required after  after a tea or reception? If you do not  attend you ha,ve not yet accepted and  should therefore call upon the hostess.  An afternoon tea or reception is merely an invitation to all a woman's  friends to come and see her on a specified day when she will be at home. Only after a wedding or evening reception are after calls expected, or when  a reception is given to introduce a debutante or a friend. A call should be  made upon the one in whose honor the  function was held; as well as upon the  hostess. ���������>  Engagement Ring During Marriage  Service.���������What is done with the engagement ring while the wedding ring  is given?

The Guest Who Wants to Make Her,  Own Bed.���������When visiting, a friend  should one offer to make 'one's own  bed? If the hostess is a simple, sensible woman, and has not many servants,  one may make one's bed and leave the  room in order, without saying anything  about ��������� it. There are hostesses who  might feel ft a reflection upon their  household resources.  It is an evidence of social training  to give1 complete attention to other  persons-ami their affairs when they  are talking. There is a grace of kind  listening as well as a grace of kind  speaking.      y  The advertiser who had received a  free puff entered the oflice with anger  and disgust written all over his face.  "I'm sure you meant well," said he,  "but that's a nice thing you've gone  and printed in your paper this week  about my business.  "What's a nice thing?" asked the  editor.  "Read it and see."  -The editor read: "If you -want';' to  have a fit, vvear Brown's boots."  .      THREE   LITTLE   SHIRTS.  "Boys, did your mother buy you any  winter flannels before she died?"  ;��������� These words were addressed to three  little lads, half-starved, cold and motherless, as they lay crouched down in  one corner of a bare and tireless room,  which was all they could call home.  Their fother, a hard-working woman,  had been obliged to support husband  and children through most of her married life by scrubbing floors and cleaning offices.  One day, exhausted from the long  strain, she dropped dead at her post.  The doctor said "heart trouble"���������  and heart trouble indeed it was.  And now the humble home was  made more humble each day by the  disappearance of what little household  goods it contained���������to purchase���������  what?  The necessities of life?  No, to buy liquor for one who was  now utterly unworthy of the title of  father, so completely had rum transformed him into a brute.  Scarcely two weeks had elapsed  since the mother had passed away,  when the above question was asked.  The little lads shivering and trembling, replied: "Yes, she bought us  each a warm shirt before she died."  "Give them to me at once," he cried,  and trie little shirts were taken off and  handed to him.  Right to the saloon went father and  shirts,-' the latter to be changed into  rum to satisfy the thirst of the former.  The boys cried out from cold and  hunger, but no father came to their  help. Neighbors, however, responded,  and soon the wretch was found, arrested, sentenced and condemned, and  the boys placed in a home, where it  is hoped some kind heart will love and  pity them.  Does tliis sound luike fiction It is  truth, and the bar7 room was in the  tenement district of New York City.  Mayor, alderman, 7 voter, will you  take the shirts from innocent, helpless boys, boys who some day, with  pleasant home surroundings; might  find a place among the honorable and  mighty?  Will you turn home into a place of  misery and married life into wretchedness?���������then license, extol, indorse,  commend the saloon.  How long must the innocent and  helpless suffer  Just as long as Christian men license and sanction the saloon and not  till this is outlawed, can we hope to  see a brighter day dawn.���������National  Advocate.  THE   UNCONQUERED   CHANNEL.  After another plucky attempt, during which he was over fifteen hours in  the water, .labez Wolffe was again  beaten in his attempt to emulate the  feat of the late Captain Webb in swimming the English Channel. This time  he. started from the French shore, and  abandoned his effort when only a mile  away from Dover. Altogether he  swam :>j miles, and had to contend  with nn ever freshening breeze, which  took him considerably out of his  course, and extended his task into  four.tides. The water was warm, and  Wolffe showed scarcely any signs* of  fatigue when he left the sea.  proceeded with, and the line between  Montreal and Toronto will, in all  llhobability, prove a splendid asset.,  EaPLOSIOIV ON A DESTROYER.

The increasing scarcity of help in  Western Canada is forcing the farmer to consider the advisability of taking more generally to mixed farming,  under which system the working of  the average farm is more equally distributed over the whole year. He is  also beginning to realize the great  economic loss through the deterioration, of his land by an uninterrupted  series of grain crops, while, at the  same time, immense Bums are paid out  of the country to Qntario and the  United States annually for adiry  products, poultry, eggs, etc., which he  could raise and sell himself. The  railway companies have reecntly cooperated with the officers of the agricultural departments of the Provincial Governments in a campaign  to encourage mixed farming in the  hope that the country may be made  more self-sustaining and less dependent upon the single industry of grain-  growing.  Hutfield and First Class Stoker Fryer  received . the worst injuries, and succumbed from shock soon after two of  the men succeeded in scrambling  through the stokehold hatch, though  they, too, were extensively .scalded,  and gallant efforts were made to rescue the injured as soon as possible.  The steam was turned off and the injured and dying were tenderly brought  ou deck by their comrades. The vessel- was brought to anchor, and with  all haste the dead and the injured,  who numbered five, were taken aboard  the Topaze, which quickly hurried to  Portsmouth, giving what succour was  possible in the sick bay on the journey.

A decrease in consumption here would only be in-line, with  developments in the old country,  where distilleries are closing down under the pressure which the traffic experiences in the high taxation. .Whatever influence, taxes and theatres may  have we are inclined to think-that the  growing public opinion against drunkenness and the demands for sobriety  made by modern industry are possibly  greater factors."

"there  seems to be no relief in sight until  the Harbor Commissioners' new elevator isi cbmpjeted next May, and  even by' then you will findf that the  facilities ot\ the port for the storing,  or handling of grain will not be nearly sufficient to take care of the crops  we expect.  "We'know the Haxhar. Commissioners are doing then; best to provide accommodation for the grain coming into the port, but that does not help us.  But private firms should be encouraged to build elevators along-the waterfront. With the one building, there  will be four or five. j$till there. is  plenty of room for more.  "There is this to be, borne in mind  also. If conditions continue here as  they have been ever since navigation  opened this season, and if something  is not done in a Yery short time to  remedy the congestion, the' grain  shippers will lose patience, and you  will find our Canadian grain being  shipped through Buffalo instead of  Montreal."  m   ^  *iftfr-M-'-;--}--;--;--;--I~^^ 1 j I ft*  .?  f  s  ?  *  f  !  !  *  *  flROTTftff A SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT with the  publishers we have the exclusive right to place the  CANADA MONTHLY MAGAZINE in the hands' of  the citizens of Vancouver and vicinity.
