 <^*ry **������bk  I  I  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  VOLUME 111  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia,  SEPTEMBER 15, 1911.  No. 19  OF INTEREST TO WORKERS.  The Canadian workingman has nothing to gain  by reciprocity.- On tlie contrary he stands to lose  much, lie is prosperous and fully employed,  while tens of thousands of American artisans walk  the streets looking for employment. lie is. well  ������������������'off .under the national policy, and will do nothing  'to impair its beneficial operations or to endanger  its perpetuation.  Iu the history of nations free trade has meant  low wages, unemployment and luider-nourish-  ment. The present reciprocity measure is just a  step towards free trade, low wages and nnemploy-.  ment. Already tariff tinkering in the United  States has been followed by hard times, unemployment and a demand on the part of employers that  railway workmen and.other toilers shall take lower wages. ���������,  Look at England. According to a British Government report, recently issued the workingman  of the United Kingdom is not, nearly so well off  as the workingman on this continent. The report  finds that cheap food is of little use to him ifche.  has no money to buy it. Great Britain always has  millions of workless people and those who have  employment receive wages that Canadians would  not accept.  In the long run. therefore. Canadian eity dwellers must oppose free trade in food products because it would lead directly to free trade in manufacturers. The attitude of Ur. Taft and other  politicians in the United States, and of the Grain  Growers' Association and other reciprocity advocates in Canada leaves no doubt that the abolition of the duties on natural products would make  quickly for the removal of the protection now enjoyed by our manufacturing industries and the  operatives engaged therein. Any approach to general free trade would subject our industries to  destructive competition from the all-powerful  American trusts. What could the outcome be but  ruin for Canadian factories, Canadian industrial  centers and Canadian workingmen'?  So much for the long range results of reciprocity! How about the immediate consequences of  the compact? What about the Government argument that the agreement would lower-the cost, of  living to consumers? It could not do so without  reducing the income of Canadian farmers. More  than this is involved���������a great deal more. Once  the American food trusts get^eoutrol of our markets they woifld "force Canadum">Hgrieulturists to  take less for their produce and Canadian, consumers to pay more for their table supplies. That is  what they have done in the United States which  grows a surplus of between four and five hundred million dollars worth of foodstuffs over and  above the country V own requirements. How  could we prevent "them doing the same thing in  the Dominion? -y-y���������-���������..=/.  There is more than this to be considered. The  New York Tribune shows that the cold storage  'trust has used the storage warehouses of the  United States as a reservoir for the purpose of  cornering produce aiid depleting the markets. In  the 'cheap season perishable foods have been  bought on a large scale and held for sale at high  prices throughout the remainder of the year. In  the United States the .law of supply and demand  has been suspended by the fact that there has  beem no limitation on the period of storage, and  dealers with big stocks on hand could create an  artificial scarcity by withholding them, if they  Iffiougl^tliH^l^rableV ^fn^TnTrryuT^IiWiroveF^  into another year. -  Not only have these methods robbed the Amer-  'ican producer and the American sonsumer.   They  It have=also resulted in the consumer being fed with  ' decayed food.   The Tribune observes: " The pub-  It lie is not unwilling to pay for the privilege of eatT  ing foods out of season, but it has bitterly resented  the deception by which it has hitherto been vie-"  itimized into purchasing storage foods of unknown  'age.   Storage goods have also been constantly sold  as fresh, and the higher prices for fresh produce  Lhave been collected."   Whether, therefore, we regard the immediate results or the ultimate eonse-  I'quences of reciprocity, it could not but prove disastrous to Canadian workingmen and city dwellers generally as well as to the average Canadian  [farmer.  ���������H*������'4.f.������.t.>..M.^"t.������.M"l'.������  <*���������-������������������*���������.<���������.* ���������.������������������..���������"I*. ������������������������������������-������-������������*  I  QUOTATIONS AND QUESTION  r "We look "forward to the day when this whole  aNorth American continent .will" be one great miction as it should be."���������New York .Journal.

S^^:^-k^:l^Mif^^e^^^imSM  During the present campaign the attention of the public has largely been confi ned4o the Reciprocity issue.    There are, however,"a number of other questions  whieh^shotddJiaue^pubUc^moUce-amiong-tlie  the ['Fisheries Question."  ��������� The Pacific Coast fishing industry is one of oiir most valuable assets and should  be properly conserved and carefully administered. What do we find is the actual  condition f We findihtU-thi8]grmt-indmtry-i8 control ed by local political heelers^  We find that in place of white men, British subjects, and Canadian citizens thai the  Japanese have control of the labor part. For instance, a herring sei-ning license  costs $50.00, and on the face of the license is a stipulation that it must be used by  the licensee, but as a matter of fact it is impossible for a man to get a license UNLESS HE STANDS IN WITH THE LOCAL LIBERAL PATRON AGE COMMITTEE. The application is made to the inspector who refers it to Mr. Robert  Kelly and the aforesaid committee, and THEY PASS JUDGMENT.  These licenses arc held by political friends of the ''Boss/7and are sold or  handled on shares with Ja}>s.  In 1909, 22,000 tons, or 220,000 barrels of herring were shipped to China by  these Japs. In 1910,30,000 barrels, were sent. This past season, however, the run  was less owing to these reckless methods and the season was extended into the spawning time, and millions of fish thus destroyed. litis extension was granted because  the local "ring" had provided a huge quantity of salt, etc.. and wished to have it  used up, hence, the extension of time. ��������� In recent years "several'complaints have been  made to Ottawa re this state of affairs, but in place of the department dealing with  the question they simply made carbon copies of the letters and forwarded them on  here to the "ring" or'���������'���������patronage'committee ana'the" Boss."  In place of this industry being a valuable asset to the community il is....simply  used as a sop to the politicalI heelers here, to their personal profit, and the lasting  disgrace of the administration at Ottawa and the loss of our citizens.  In place of thousands of sturdy white men we have thousands of aliens. In  place of general benefit to the Province and Dominion it is.simply a benefit (6 a feu-  unscrupulous heelers. 7  The Dominion regulations, such as they are, are totally ignored UNDER INSTRUCTIONS OF HON. WM. TEMPLEMAN.  * The Government also either own or hire about 25 fisheries inspection boats and  THEY ARE SUPPLIED BY THE "BOSS" AND HIS GANG OF PETS. No  tenders are ever called for supplies far these boats, but these heelers CHARGE  THEIR OWN FIGURES FOR THE SUPPLIES.  It is time that this should be stopped.  Mr. Senkler has refused to interfere. lie is president of the local Liberal Association and knows all about it. Aid. Stevens has publicly e-xposed.this deal and has  promised the "Ring" the liveliest time of their life when he is returned to Ottawa,  therefore support the man who will care for your interests.  Let us abolish this iniquitous system of graft and patronage to pets in direct  contravention of law and decency.  ������'i-t������������-������'i"i"  9< 9   ���������"��������� '���������   I"  >������������������������������������>������������������   9'9   *>9  ���������   <   ���������   9   9.9  9  +-������*+-������������   >   ������������������i>i������<-������   ������������������i.4' ������.������i������.t������������������������ ������.t������t-n-twtw������..t*  THE GLOBE TOLP ONLY HALF THE STORY  They Dare Not Tell the Pacts About the Cattle  Trade.  Among the many alluring arguments presented,  by Liberal newspapers and Liberal candidates to  secure the farmer's vote in favor of the Fielding-  Paterson agreement, is the quoting of figures as  found in market reports, purporting to show the "  relative values of cattle in Canada and the United  States. Mr. Hugh Guthrie, at his meetings, where  he addresses people whom he doubtless describes  as "the stalwart yeomanry, "aiid The Globe, are  particularly, sinners in this respect. Only a few  days ago The Globe had a large item on the front  page of its issue.. "Markets the Real Issue."  ��������� '7 Therein are quotedexport steers in Toronto,  $5.88: and good to prime steers in Chicago. $6.62.  A still greater difference has been referred to by  speakers, showing as much.as $1.25 to $1.75 a  hundred pounds in favor of the Chicago market  as against Toronto. "Farmers will insist on larger  markets -when, they fully understand what it.  means." adds The Globe, taking very good care to  only tell one-half���������and not let the farmer fully understand, what it means!  The Real Pacts.  What are the real facts?   What do these figures  mean?   Why is there this difference in prices between Toronto and Chicago?    The "full understanding" The Globe does not give; that The Globe  does not want given, nor does the quoter of market prices, Mr. Guthrie, give to his audiences, is,  that cattle of the same grade are practically the  same price in, either market.    Export steers intended for Liverpool or London will be the same  price practically in Toronto. Buffalo or Chicago.  And why should they not be?   They are to sell  in Liverpool or London.   And is it not the moat  manifest nonsense to try and make the public believe that a steer will only fetch $6.25 in Toronto  and $7 in Chicago, when in both cases Liverpool ia.  its ultimate destination?    Are there any cattle  then that are worth $1 more in Chicago than Toronto ?   Yes, undoubtedly!   A rich American will  pay anything for, any thing he wants.   There are a  tew choice, extra fed, extra bred, extra finished  steers that do fetch $8 in Chicago, when perhaps  the best are only bringing the same day in Toronto $6.50 or $6.75.   Why?   Because in'Chicago  there is a small demand for that extra value cattle,  . ,the demand produces the supply: a Jew,- quite a  few. are sold at that price.    Nobody in Toronto  will pay any such figure; the highest value is.  equivalent to the price paid for the best export  cattle, and no more.   But let it be well marked,  that the best export cattle in Toronto are as high  a price as the best export in Chicago.    So that  reciprocity will not bring to the farmer any better  price for his cattle than he gets under present conditions.  Here Is the Proof.  Moog & Greenwald,  (Commission Buyers of Cattle. Hogs. Sheep.  Chicago, III.. Aug. 25, 1911.  Messrs. J. & J. W. Dunn, Toronto, Ont.  Gentlemen:  - Our receipts this week were considerably heavier than last, and yet the good, choice cattle did  not sell any lower, while the medium and common  kinds sold 20 to 755 cents per cwt. lower.  A. fair to good shipment of Liverpool (native)  cattle would have, cost, this week. _from $6.00_to__.  $6.50 and Londons from $6.35 to $6.75. according  to fat and quality; fair to good Antwerp and Liverpool blls. $5.00 to $5.40. and scarce: fair to good  Antwerp steers,.$5.85 to $6.25, according to fat and  quality. ���������>  Yours truly,  (Signed)    MOOG & GREKXVVALD.  On the same date. August 25th. The Globe quotes-  Toronto cattle'market best exporters. $6.10 to  $6.80;-' Chicago. $5.10 to $8.10. There were no  $S.1() cattle in Canada for sale. What there were  ���������Liverpool or London export cattle, sold equally  well in Toronto or Chicago.  Why should Liberal politicians tell one-hnlf the  story? They dare not tell all the facts! Most people think, at. least the wage-earner on both skies  of the border does so think, that, the farmer today  is getting very good value for all lie sells, and they  do not want to increase his deposit account at the  bank out of their hard-earned wages.  ANNEXATION.  "It appears that there is very strenuous opposition in'Canada to the treaty, but farmers >:\ro  favorably disposed since it-would-open our markets for'" their, products.  "Free trade between the' two countries will  eventually follow the .-enactment of '-the. present  measure and that will mean, ultimately, peaceful  annexation.  "There'is no doubt .about that. Not. of course,  in this generation, but it wiil surely conie. in a later  one. Canadians who would deplore such result  had better watch out."  The above is an extract from the'Farmers'  Journal of -Philadelphia, with the largest .circulation of any journal.-iii the United States.  THE WISE COURSE.  As Mr.. W. T. White, has said, if the United  States wants.our foodstuffs, let it take down its  tariff and get them. Then our farmers will have,  the American market ancl their own magnificent  protected home market as well.  -���������i-.A  ;%:.���������������?

The gulls and cormorants, filling  the air with raucous cries, were rustling in rapid flight in the wake of the  boat, darting ever and anon at the  water or making daring pecks at the  floating carcass.  Soon Brand glanced over his shoulder to measure the distance.. With  the ease o fa practised oarsman he  turned his craft to bring her stern  on to the  landing-place.  "Lower a basket!" he cried to  Jones, and, whilst the others wondered what the urgency in his voice  betokened, there reached them the  deep strong blast of a steam-whistle  blown four times in quick succession.  Each and all, they had forgotten the  Princess Royal. She vvas close in,  much nearer than mail steamers usually ventured.  At first they gazed at her with surprise, Brand even suspending his  manoeuvres for a moment. Then Jim,  knowing that' a steamship trumpets  the same note to express all sorts of  emotion, understood that the officers  had witnessed a good deal, if not all,  that had taken place, and were offering their congratulations.  "Blow away, my hearties!" crowed  Jim, vainly apostrophizing the vessel.  "You'll have somethin' to crack about  when you go ashore to-night or I'm  very much mistaken. Now, cap'n,"  he went on, "take the cover off. It's  alive, 1 suppose. Is it a man, or i  woman?" '  CHAPTER II.  / A CHRISTENING.

Re- "J*.'''  freshing as the long swim was after V"  a night of lonely vigil, itself the cuV a  mination of two days of hard work,  the .fierce battle with the shark had  shocked Into active existence the reserve of: latent enrgy  -which    every  healthy animal unconsciously hoards  for life-and-death emergencies.  But there was another reason. Het  had scarce gained the comparative  safety of the boat before he was, ln  the same instant/: horrified and astounded to a degree, hitherto beyond  his experience. 777N6t even 'the stiff  pull of two hundred yards sufficed to  regtore his senses. So Jim's question  fell on his ears Avith the meaningless  sound of the steamer's siren.  "What Js it, mate?" repeated his fellow-keeper, moreT. insistently. "You  ain't hurt any ways*- are you?"  "Ft is-'a Ijaby," ^aid Brand, in a curiously vacant v'ay.  "A baby!" shrieked Jones, whose  crudely developed nervous Eystem  was not proof against the jar of incredulity induced by this statement.  Had Brand said "a tiger," he could  not have exhibited greater concern.  "Yes, a baby���������and it is living. I  heard it cry," murmured the other, sitting down rather suddenly.   .  Indeed, a faint wail, suggestive of  a kitten, now came from beneath  the tumbled canvas quite near to Jim.  But the Royal Navy does not encourage neurosis. The lighthouse keeper felt that a minor crisis had arrived. It must be dealt with promptly.  , The evil odor which still adhered  to-the-boat^told_himyhat=Brandyi^  exchanged one Inferno for another,  "when he clambered out of reach of  the blindly vengeful shark.  He looked up at Jones.  "Lower away," he said, promptly.  "Swing the derrick until I grab the  tackle, .-and0then hoist me aboard,"  This was done. Ungainiy in his  walk owing to his wounded limb, Jim,  clinging to a rope, had the easy, activity of a squirrel.  . "Now, lower a jug with some bran-  'dy.   He's dead be'at," he added.  Whilst Jones hastened for the spirit, the sailor stooped and }threw back  'the Sail.  Lying in the bottom of the boat,  wrapped in :a blanket which unavail-/  ing smuggles had rumpled into a roll  i'beneath the arms, was an infant  ���������whose precise age it was impossible  to estimate forthwith owing to the  ���������emaciated conditldn of its body.  With the rocking of the boat, the  foul bilge-water washed around the  child's limbs and back. Instinct alone  had saved it from drowning. Perhaps,  during the first hours of vigor after  ��������� abandonment the little one might  have rolled over in infantile search  ���������for food and human attendance, but  ;the rush of salt, water into ey^ and  mouth must have driven the tiny sufferer "to seek instantly the only posi-  'tion;In which life was possible.  So far as the man could judge in a  first hasty glance, the child's clothing was of excellent quality. Yet he  ;gave -slight heed to such considerations. Jim was the father of thr^e  lusty "youngsters who were snugly in  bed in Penzance, and the sight ot  this forlorn little sea-waif made his  eyes misty.  He  reached    down,    unpinned    the  blanket,   which   was   secured   with   a  brooch, and lifted the infant out of its  unpleasing     environment.      It     was  piteous to see the way in which the I y  shrunken    hands   -at once   strode to |X  clasp   his   wrists,, though   they -were j .���������.

WATCHFUL PARENTS  Make Home Attractive to the Children  and Welcome Their Friends  Mothers should realize that it will  not do ' to permit-a ������������������ daughter.... to' go  where she'will at her own discretion,  to seek her associates where she may.  They must know what her amuse-'  ments are, whose company she cultivates, where she spends her leisure.  Mothers, retrace your steps, stand at  her side, , be her age, think her  thoughts, commune with youth, learn  again its lessons, share its blessed  hopes, lead it around the pitfalls by  gentle counsel, "persuasive reason,  says Woman's World.  Do not make it necessary for the  young people to go away from home  for their good times". Make home attractive, their friends welcome, Make  deceit unnecessary. When they go  elsewhere find, out where they spend  the time, with whom they spend it, in  what manner they spend it. Precaution often saves a heartache by-and-by.  Many a brand has been snatched from  the burning by a knowledge that came  in time. Many a mother's heart has  been bowed in shame and sorrow by a  lesson learned too late.  Parents cannot afford to trust too  much, to expect too much, to be indifferent, compiaisant, neglectful.  When the time of payment comes,  their house will be left unto them  desolate.  Is your home a home? Do your  sons and daughters come in to meals  and to sleep, go out at will and no  questions asked, no interest manifested? Do they keep irregular hours?  Are they practically under their own  entire control? It is not easy to see  how any mother can sit at ease, hearing the door close behind son or  daughter going out; for an evening, not  knowing to a certainty how and where  it is to be passed. It is not easy to see  how she can bear td feel them going  away from her into companionship  and among influences of which she is  ignorant; how she can so far forget  her stewardship; how she can quiet  her conscience. No gambler takes  such chances or plays for such high  stakes as the woman who holds a child  iri trust. ���������'-'���������'���������  A case that holds an enormous  power for evil recently came to note,  however. In a nicelyrfurnlshed flat  lived a young couple with their two  small children. *"  But the son and daughter took advantage sometimes of their parents'  absence, and had the wrong kinds of  friends in to amuse them. This, however, was put a stop to by their father  and mother when they learnt the facts.  Soon all was altered, and things went  happily again.  7 Vigilance is necessary on the part  of all parents who want their sons and  daughters to grow up uneontaminated.  Loving care and thought for one's  children must be accompanied by *  firm hand to guide then*:.   '  Children who love to obey their  parents make the best citizens.  X.OTAX, OBANOE Z.OBOE  MT.

The. best part of a summer's day is the early morning; let  the children,enjoy it. They wiil benefit more from an hour in the open  air then than from two later in the  day.  To keep a strong, healthy child in  bed until seven or half-past may be  positive cruelty. A child is like a bird;  the moment he wakes be wants to be  out.  '������������������    ' - - -��������� ���������  ���������  HOME-MADE  SOAP  An excellent way of using up waste  dripping, fat skimmings, etc., is to  make scouring soap of them. The fat  need hot be fresh; but it must be first  melted down and strained. To every  pound of fat allow one pound of red  ash, two ounces of resin, and one gallon of water. Boil from five to six  hours, according to the quantity, stirring frequently during the time. If  it becomes too thick, add more water.  The resin is not added until five minutes before the soap is lifted, and a  handful of salt is added at the same  time.  I&veliness   Should   Not  tie   Banished  From this Much-Used Room  Instead of "pleasant," the word  "pretty" would have been used if  there had been no fear of arousing  the scorn of the housewife who prides  herself on being above ali things  strictly practical.' But as a matter of  fact there is nothing to prevent the  pretty kitellen from being as "practical" as anyone can wish. Indeed, it  Is likely to bs far more convenient  than is the average kitchen, where  everything not considered "good  enough" for other rooms is allowed to  collect.  As the kitchen is the room in which  most housewives 'spend the greater  partof7their-4ime,Jvhy_shou!d=ail-love^  liness be banished from it? Practically considered, it ought to' be among the'  chief rooms to receive careful attention both as to decoration and fur-.  Hisning.  The first consideration, of course.  Is exquisite cleanliness. For this reason a washable paper should he  chosen, and as it is washable there  is no reason for selecting a dark one  on even the brightest morning. A  tile pattern in cream and bright green  is amongst the most suitable, though  cream and scarlet adds notably to  cheeriness of aspect. If the latter is  choseu then oak-grain paint looks  well, and also wears well; .with green  paper, paint to match is more effec  tive. instead of a bluey-white wash  for the ceiling, a cream-tinted one lasts  longer, and is also less suggestive of  out-buildings. Carpet ln the kitchen is  very inadvisable, and a pleasant, not  to say pretty kitchen never contains  oddments of carpets from all parts of  the house. Instead, a substantial  linoleum of quiet pattern and harmonising with the wall-paper should entirely cover the floor, the only matting  allowed being a bright-hued hearthrug, which should be taken up during  cooking operations. The best- ornaments for the kitchen are brightly-  polished pots and pans, and, it may be  added, a neat row of .enamelled canisters duly lettered, containing various  dry goods. Nicely-framed little pictures are so inexpensive nowadays  that there is littie excuse for plastering the kitchen walls with staring  almanacks.

PRIMITIVE MAN  {By Rev. Owen Bulkeley)  PART III  At this point we may pause to ask  r^feit .Sight the contents of his burial  r.:s&������3������s -.throw . upon Neolithic man's  !.��������� Eufeas, about the spirit world. In ex-  ; sf-tniJning British tumuli, Canon Green-  - ^ssell frequently found holes below the  '/.���������zsaSaral surface, inside the barrow or  -���������feHEnnli;   the probability is that these  ��������� were Teceptacles for food ov drinlc  < for the use of the dead; and many  '* SJsathen   nations  of  the   present day,  ��������� 'Safe isimilar practices. The bones  ' &Mei\ ~ found near Neolithic barrows  -evidence the great antiquity of.the  -^cRwsiom of feasting at the grave, as a  ������Kjmgensal act between the dead and  the living, aud the numerous cloven  fifeoUs and other human remains point  <fe������ ������he sacrifice of atendants and the  sstKiT-^acj-iflfice of wives, to wait on the  <s?sjia:rted spirit. Thus we see history  'arot repeats itself, and the Neolithic  ���������ISttUr were "feeling after God, if haply  ���������������kt*& -might find Him." It is not gen-  -.sscally Ucriown that the misnamed  E*niiffls Circles, Giant's Graves7; Odin's  'x3iixvm, are a special feature of Neo-  CatxHc "times, and may be reduced to  tfcrc* classes: (1) Single upright  atones; (2) Dolmens (three or four  upright stones, on which another is  placed); and (3) Cromlechs (circles  e������. -afcnaes, enclosing tumuli, or standing: koy themselves, such as Stone-  %enge). Here ancient and modem  meet, the annointing of the sacred  art������ne at Bethel is paralled by what  tnri&Tftace "in these pre-historic times,  raaM which is still done by the Society  TsSander. The barbaric mind believed  "Gig stones to be the parents of little!  -ssbemes, and gradually traced human  cfiesrent from trees, and then from ani.  scats, such being the "totems" or clan  imaufks of successive tribes, which  t&ewws a vivid light on present-day  faffam life, and many rough representations of tree, grass, fifish and  animal gods aTe hi existence. The  fnuttafic -mind   surely  still  exists  in  subject.  Weaving, plaiting, and rough pottery  y ���������  all in their earliest styles belong to  this period.  The beginning of Lake Dwellings,  around some of the remaining piles of  which stone, bronze and also iron  articles, occur together, show that settlements founded in the Late Neolithic Age passed without apparent  break to'the'Metal Ages. It is how  believed that the same race passed  from the Stone to the Metal Ages,  and that all legends to the contrary  of an invasion of a superior race  armed with bronze weapons are Ayith-  out warranty. It ,is more according  to God's working that- "man should  pass from strength to ��������� strength."  What we call the Aryan mother-tongue  was common to all the races throughout the world, and 'had been formed  in long ages, from incoherent sounds,  which gradually assumed a meaning  understandable by all. In a paper  such as this the material must perforce be very scrappy, but in a limited  tome one can only give bare outlines  of facts. Suffice to say, that by the  discovery of the use of metals, we  see the Hand of God gradually weaning man from his ( degradation, and  restoring to him those attributes of  reason and understanding which at  first resided,in the noblest of all Creation, "made in the image of God."  .1 now propose to touch briefly on  the Age of Metals. We are now well  out of the Glacial Periods, which we  look back upon with horror and sorrow, as witnessing the Degradation  of Man after the Fall, and welcome  now his rise again to his proper position in the Order of Creation.  Following the art of lire, the two  chief agents in man's progress have  been the discovery of metals and the  power of steam. The revolution  wrought by metals is the greatest that  the world will ever see. No wonder  there gathered many a myth and  legend around them, which ascribes  them to the gods; but side by side  with Vulcan, Hepoestus, and Wieland,  we have the Bible testimony to the  immortal   Tubal   Cain,  the   wondrous  tatarae, Who hi these enlightened times,  ^niiakvor to trace man's descent from smith, who we read "was the instruct-  tflfce lowest forms of life. But I must or of every artiflficer, or the forger  Wtt further  pursue    this  interesting of every cutting instrument in brass  jand  iron,"  thus locating the Age  of  Metals as well before the floods that  I . A     ���������  subsequently  overwhelmed     the   uni-  i  i verse.    Metals were supposed to have  a living organization, and to originate  ��������� from  sprouts,   probably  because  bog-  iron ore, which has a spongy texture,  assumes   tree-like     forms,     and   this  I would be the original metal dealt with |  ' by men who lived in these Ages,    tl  ! has  been  much    discussed    whether  river  gold  or  copper    was  the   first  metal known to the primitive Aryans,  .but although the  former might have  attracted attention; the more frequent  'outcrop of copper where early settle-  jments occur, point to it as the primi-  tice metal, and its use as copper pure  and  simple long preceded  its use as  I a  compound  in  the  forms of  bronze.  They would first regard it as a peculiarly heavy stone, yielding to a blow,  instead of breaking, in fact, a malleable stone;  yet although the fires on  their  altars  melted   their   copper  im-  j plements,   they   don't   seem   to   have  had  any idea of smelting the metal,  j but used it simply as stone.   This was  another intermediate stage in the advance of man's reason;  but when its  ] real utility by mixing it with tin. zinc,  j lead, or indeed silver was discovered,  .it would be hard indeed to state.  I    Phoenicia seems to be the first locality where bronze was used;  where  they got their tin from we know 'well,  mostly from Corn wail, England  (Her-  j odotus, who wrote B. C. 484, speaks of  ; the British Islands under the name of  j.Cassiterides, or the Tin Islands), but  not so their copper, which, perhaps,  came from the Ural mountains.   There  were thfee methods of casting bronze  implements, pouring the molten metal  into a stone or clay mould, or Into a  double mould, or finally into a solid  mould, and  perfect casts pf the victims pf Pompeii have  been obtained  by similar means.   Single moulds are  by no means uncommon, and objects  roughly ornamented evidence no mean  advance in art.  The hatchet or axe. known as the  celt, is the most abundant type, and  was used bot*./ as a tool and a. weapon. The flat celts are the earliest,'  approaching in character to the stone  hatchet, and then came the flanged or  ribbed kind, lastly the winged, with  flanges forming a socket, and the socketed kind. In the sixteenth century,  spear-heads, celts, and bronze swords  (this is the "brass" of the Old Testament) were unearthed at St.  Michael's Mount, while all kinds of  other weapons, implements, as well  as buttons, ear-rings, bracelets, hairpins, brooches, etc., have been lire  qiiently found. The value of these  relics, principally discovered in the  Swiss lake dwellings (similar to those  used by the Malays), as contributions  to our knowledge of the Bronze-using  Period is especially evident. And regarding religious practices, the highly ornamented bracelets in the lake  bottoms, were probably offerings to  the water spirits, and to the present  day tbe Melanesians worship the terrible sea-ghosts; and the ancient Babylonians, when bathing their sick in  "that ancient river the Euphrates,"  besought the river god to carry away  their diseases; all which modernity  repeats in the extraordinary pilgrimages to the Ganges. cBarbaric lustrations re-appear with a religious meaning, when the leprous Naamau was  cleansed in theyordan, and the sick  waited for the spirit-troubling of the  Bethesdan water. St. Winifred's.well  and similar water cures are too well  known v to need recapitulation. Oh,  what superstitions have caused ghastly ordeals, vain tests, and cursings  and wishings everywhere in connection with water, what portents, what  omens have been drawn from its appearance; the" subject is so charged  with the primitive ideas, of man concerning his relation to everything  around'him, that it tempts one to linger over it; why, the very covers of  our fonts were once under .lock and  key, lest the baptismal water should  be carried away for magical rites,  though Christ had himself purified  water from superstitious use, by the  institution  of  Christian  Baptism.  Other curiously shaped and carved  stones point to other -phases of native worship. All religion has one underlying idea, viz.:��������� worship; we  may call it iii the language of chemistry 'allotropie,' that is to say, that  as the diamond and charcoal are lif-  ferent combinations of the atoms of  the same substance, so religions are  similar in essence,  but vary in the  mixture.  In the Bronze Age, cremation of the  dead was always adopted in order to  effectually dispose of the ghost/and  t$> their belief this seemed more certain than burial w.i,th ponderous  weights on the body, and a ring-fence  surrounding. However, the old conception of the timl> as a home bf the  dead never died out, and numbers of  so-called "house-urns" have been discovered as receptacles of the funereal  pyre ashes. Wholesome and sanitary  as was this practice, it has prevented  the preservation of articles throwing  light.'on the dress and habits of the  people. Silver was preferred to gold,  being much commoner, and more convenient for bartering. Lead was  known before iron, as deposits have  been discovered with bronze findings;  and for a long time the term brouze  or copper was applied to iron, and  most words for iron are derived from  the Latin aes equals copper. It is supposed ��������� that the first iron ever known  was obtained from oerolites, the Coptic name for iron, meaning "the stone  from heaven." Iron was smelted on  the shores of the  Black Sea in  the  time of Homer (about B.C. 850); how  much earlier���������if at all���������in Asia is unknown. ���������'..-';..  With the appearance of iron* tools  and weapons the story of Primitive  Man is ended. In the Age of Iron  there is no place for spirits���������good/bad  or indifferent. In what I have said  we see that although man's early history is strewn with rude tools and  weapons, civilization retains /in no  small degree his primitive ideas about  his surroundings.  There are vast ages which separate  the chippers of flint from the highest''  types living; we are, as far as'.we..-  choose to take advantage of our civilization, the results of his slow .progress. There are long, sad monotonous ages, strewn with his rough implements before any great impulses to  advance, as came through knowledge  of metals was given; from the savage  implements to complicated machinery, from rude scratchings on stone  or bone to sculpture and painting of  the highest order, from dugout canoe  to stately liners, and ad infifinitum.

In connection with the7widening of  Main street now in progress the engineer-reported-thaWthe-road=varied  in width from 55 to 80 feet and that  he had no power to move the posts of  the original survey on this thoroughfare except by the sanction of the,  surveyor general, "ihe engineer was  instructed to obtain necessary author-  ity from the surveyor general and to  define the proper limits of the road.  Mr. Wigman appeared before the  council to protest against his taxes  for 1911. He stated that in 1910 his  property was assessed as "wild land"  when it was really improved property and that he then took his papers  to the assessor and tax collector for  correction. He had never received  any notification since and the same  error was reported this year.  In these circumstances he expected  the council to inquire into the neglect  of the responsible oflicials but the  Reeve informed him the council were  unable to attend to it as the matter  had already been passed by the Court  of Revision.       7  Applicant considered the decision  very hard as he had taken every reasonable care last year to get the mistake corrected and it was up to the  council to see that the officials did  their duty' as it was only reasonable  to expect a complaint once made to  be attended to and not require and  annual renewal.  Yet another new" department to fill  the new municipal premises was suggested by Mr. Springford the new-  clerk. He. recommends the appointment of a purchasing department in  order that this part of the corporation affairs might be thoroughly  checked and placed on a systematic  basis. -\ Mr, Springford's plan Is for  the appointment of an official to purchase and keep separate accounts of  the distribution of the goods. The  council appeared in favor of the sug^r  gestion and it is thought it will be  adopted in a few days. Meanwhile  what does the store keeper do if  he does not already account for the  distribution of the stores. The clerk's  suggestion seems to imply a present  neglect of system and checking and  with eight months of the year gone  with an exceptional;expenditure prbbr  ably the ratepayers may express some  opinion;   -  Mr. Price of the Crematory Company which is erecting a crematorium  next to the cemetery attended the  council to explain the company's position in installing their plant without  consulting the council or obtaining  their sanction. Mr. Price undertook  that the institution should in no sense  be a nuisance and mentioned that he  had obtained the city's permission in  the belief that that would be sufficient. He now submitted plans and  these were referred to the Board of  Works.  The council accepted invitations to  attend the opening of the Central  Park Agricultural Exhibition and also  the North Vancouver Horticultural  Exhibition.'  The board of works are not satisfied  that the contractors for the new municipal hall are doing their utmost to  complete that structure and at its  presentr'rate - of=bui Id ing^ South���������Vancouver is likely to tie annexed to the  city before the new city hall can be  utilised. It was decided to press the  urgency of the matter at the next  council meeting.  At the last meeting of the South  Vancouver School trustees on Monday  last the board had again to grapple  with the extraordinary inflow of pupils. Notwithstanding numerous extensions some of the schools still  are overcrowded already and various  proposals for obtaining temporary accommodation were brought forward  for consideration. At South Hill it  was decided to ask the council for the  use of the old municipal hall as soon  as the municipal staff, had vacated it  and meanwhile two sessions a day as  at present are to be continued.  The matter of night schools was  considered and a special meeting to  complete details was fixed for Friday  evening, 8th inst. Mr. Staples was  appointed janitor of the newly erected  schools on Victoria Road.  The local ratepayers of Cedar Cottage and D. L. 301 are still endeavoring to persuade the B. C. E. Ry. to  supply a through service to Cordova  street, similar to that long enjoyed  on the Fraser avenue route.

Land complained personally to the council regarding their al-  ledged misappropriation of 10 feet  from the front of his property on  Boundary Road and the Reeve explained  to  Mr.  Lamb  the numerous  igers.  The B. C. B. Ry. realise the importance of this alteration by running  a through service between 4 and 7  p. hi. It seems strange that the B.  C. E. Ry. can ignore the greater importance of similar convenience for  those going to worx. It seems a one  sided idea to delay men going to work  when time is most pressing and to  facilitate their return home when  baste is not so imperative.
